examines permit draft


Commission looks
toward hurricane
season

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- The Moore
Hayen City Council met April 15
and examined a rough draft on
pre-construction permits sug-
gested by Mike Brantley, council
member.
The proposed permit should


be a simple site plan that includes
zoning setbacks and elevation.
Most significantly, the require-
ments establish the addition of
proper drainage on new. build-
ing sites, which may have ele-
vated dirt pads that could lead to
water runoff onto earlier homes
sited nearby. The proposed per-
mit will have instructions on de-
mucking before construction be-
gins, and there will be guidelines
for top soil to ensure appropriate
sod and landscaping can be in-
stalled.


"What we are trying to do
is incorporate three ordinances
into a permit," said Mr. Brantley.
All items on the permit can be
filled out by the contractor, then
an official signs off the items. This
must be done before building is
granted. The city council and city
attorney will further examine the
proposed permit, and the final
draft may be on the agenda for
the next meeting.
Another issue discussed was
the refining and clarification of
electric service disconnect pro-


cedures; and how to increase
efficiency from whenever the
disconnect notification begins,
and at what time the bill is paid,
or service is disconnected.
John Ahern, council mem-
ber, reported that he had been
in contact with a local post office
official about the mail delivery
problems in the city. He men-
tioned that, it appears the post
office is making an effort to hear
suggestions; and he will report
back with further details.

on hand, and assess what may
be needed or changed.

Avenue



of the



Woods
By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades Cty Democrat
As the sun moves slowly
northward reflections and shad-
ows take on new dimensions.
And little "windows" through
low-hanging limbs are alight with
new scenes - 'specially those
with silvered Spanish moss wav-
ing back and forth across them.
There are a few paths that
we have carved through the
vines and saplings that we walk
and explore often, but ours pale
in comparison to those little
trails and avenues of those who
naturally call the woods home.
We have to cut and chop our
way while they make their way
bending and brushing against
whatever is in their way. Those'
of the deer are marked here and
there with small trees which
they have rubbed free of bark
as they stroke their horns back
and forth. One morning not
long ago, one of our Christmas
trees, a tall, shapely Virginia ce-
dar along the pasture road was
bare of bark completely around
the small trunk for at least ten
inches. The reddish strips of bark
hung like ribbons blowing in the
wind. There was no way it could
- survive - and it didn't. And,
close by, there was another ce-
dar, considerably larger, that was
rubbed bare oh one side. We
split a two-foot piece of six-inch
accordion plastic pipe, fitted it
around the wounded trunk, then
taped it back together. So far,
so good, there's been no more
damage that we can see to that
tree. It's a different story with a

Adkins extraordinary reunion


By Anne L. Coffey
In 1910, Jesse Adkins of
Gainesville bought property on
Sanibel Island after returning
from a stint in the U.S. Navy. In
spite of the U.S. Naval Acade-
my's offer for him to train to be-
come an officer, he had given
in to his mother's wishes and
became a farmer on that island
paradise.
His mother, abandoned
by her second husband, later
opened a boarding house next
to the farm and raised her chil-
dren. Jesse married Irene Clyde
in 1916 in the Methodist minis-
ter's home on Sanibel.
After a hurricane blew salt
water all over the island farms,


many moved inland. Moore Ha-
ven had become a busy farm-
ing community and the perfect
place for Jesse's family. They
moved into the Moore Haven
Hotel and later built a Gulf Ser-
vice Station across the street.
Fifty family members of the
Jesse and Irene Adkins family
congregated at the old Moore
Haven Hotel last Saturday to
celebrate their family roots
and pay tribute to the two re-
maining children, Bill and Mitty
Adkins, now in their 80s; who,
along with five other young-
sters, grew up in that rambling,
gabled building during the
1930s.
Family stories relate that


Jesse's father, a trapper born in
1889, was murdered and buried
in his canoe somewhere in the
Glades County swamps. This
will be their fourth reunion and
the stories keep getting better.
The tireless efforts, of Mitty's
daughter Kip (short for Kipling),
and other strong-natured kin,
made the well-organized event
run smoothly and with much
hilarity.
Kip was slightly nervous
about her father and Uncle Bill
as they toured the totally reno-
vated boarding house that has
seen countless hurricanes, in-
cluding the famous 1926 storm

Two questions; no answer but a call to get busy


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D+
saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was behind a man at an
airline ticket counter waiting to
tatch a flight home. He was con-
.erned about making his flight
oo; arriving a bit late. He was
asking the ticket agent "will I have
jime enough to get to the gate?",
"How far is it to the gate?", "Will
my luggage arrive?", "Can you
call the gate and tell them I'm on
my way?", "Is the flight closed out
yaet?" and on and on. He looked
at me and I asked him "Do you
want to talk or fly?" He picked up
his briefcase and ran for the gate
Without another word.
SAnother example of "do you
want to fish or cut bait?" This day
in Church calendars is Ascension
Day. It is the day celebrated tradi-
tionally when the Lord returned
to Heaven after His earthly stay
with us. We read that he had
inet with His followers after His
resurrection and they asked Him
'Lord, will you at this time re-
store the Kingdom of Israel?" He
Said to them "it is not for you to
itnow the times or the seasons...
but you shall receive power when


the Holy Spirit has come to you
and you shall be my witnesses...
and when he said this, as they
were looking on, He was lifted up
and a cloud took Him out of sight
(Acts 1:6-9).
Then followed that two "men
in white" told His followers "Men
of Galilee, why do you stand look-
ing into Heaven?(v.10)." From
time to time people ask about the
"end times" and when the world
would come to an end. I remind
them "It is not for us to know".
Someone mailed me a chart
once predicting the date and time
and how they calculated it; it was
wrong, of course, as if they could
discern what even the Lord did
not give us to know. That's clear
enough; the question is a use-
less one to ask. There are always
enough things going on in the
world to be pessimistic about and
say "Aha! this must be the time"
but our track records of predic-
tions are only poor attempts to
second-guess God.
The boy who cried "wolf" lost
his believers and really left them
unprepared when the wolf finally
appeared. Instead the Lord says
"You shall receive power" and


they do. They stop worrying and
get busy.
When the Lord ascends, sud-
denly two angelic figures ask a
question "Men of Galilee, why do
you stand looking into Heaven?"
They realize their task is not to
contemplate but to get busy. This
busy-ness is how they honor the
Ascension of Jesus. That is how
we can honor Him too.
There are those who in the
name of religion who are mas-
ters at posing questions that are
rheaningless, talking about ques-
tions that nobody is asking, and
spending time avoiding the real
work of our ministries. Someone
told me about an Eastern church
that was arguing about minor
points on the eve of the Russian
revolution; the world was in ter-
moil around them and they were
fixated on their own small mat-
ters. Navel-gazing is not our call;
the call is "Why are you stand-
ing here?" It is a call to get busy
in ,a world torn by wars and do.
what we can do to make peace,
a world full of shortages and our
call to help share what we can, a
world facing climate change and
our need to use our resources

wisely, a world with sicknesses
that can be cured and our willing-
ness to help others with our heal-
ing gifts, a world full of all sorts
of needs and our willingness to
translate our contemplations into
acts. These are the ways we "as-
cend' in God's eyes; to rise to a
Higher plane of living and show
what our belief is really about.
The passages remind us not to
worry about what we can't know
or to do more than stand around
staring into Heaven; but to put.


to work what we believe and to
do something! Help somebody,
stand up for those who need our
support. Faith isn't only about con-
templation or just saying prayers
or just being "pious"; it is about
what follows from our belief.
That's how the faithful "ascend"
and prepare to ascend when our
days here are finally finished.
The question posed by Jesus'
followers got them no answer:
the question posed by His mes-
sengers was a call to action. That


question had an answer for all of
us: translate your faith into action.
The question about whether we
want to fish or cut bait has its'
place in God's plans too: do we
want to stand there or get busy?
In the midst of all of the pessimis-
tic things going on in the world; I
can do something no matter how
small or seemingly insignificant -
as one group says "I cannot do
everything, but I can do some-
thing." That's our call - that's our
way of ascending with Him.

a special pre-school class at Belle

Glades County Women's Club


Are you a graduating senior
who needs financial assistance to
go to college, and who doesn't?
Glades County Woman's Club
each year presents one, and
sometimes two, scholarships to
a graduating senior who is trying
very hard, but can't quite make
straight A's. This year the club
also helped with the college ex-
penses of a young man who has


graduated from college at the top
of his class, and is working to pay
back what he owes the college. A
Scholarship Committee reviews
the applications and recommends
to the club their selection.
Glades County Woman's Club
now has six new members who
agree with the principles and
purposes of the Club, and were
initiated at the April meeting. Fol-


lowing their initiation by Barbara
Brown, each new member was
presented with a marigold -- the
club's flower. Welcomed into
the Club were: Sue Vreeland, Te-
resa Kaiser, Marcia Simek, Karen
Cromley, Denise Desimone and
Dianne Tillery. Also, joining but
unable to attend the initiation due
to illness, was Margaret Brown.
A new slate of officers for the


coming year was elected, and will
be installed at the May 8, meeting.
Installation will be held at a ban-
quet at Justin's Country Cooking
Restaurant, and husbands and
guests are included. The May
meeting will be the last until Sep-
tember.

A call is made to the National Day of Prayer


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Since the first call to prayer
in 1775 when the Continental
Congress asked the colonies to
pray for wisdom and guidance
in forming our nation, our coun-
try has come together numerous
times to seek divine guidance and
help. In 1952, a joint resolution
by Congress declared an annual
national day of prayer. In 1988,
the National Day of prayer was
officially set as the first Thursday
of May. This year, on May 1st,
people will come together in


communities all across America
at noontime to unite in prayer for
our troops, our leaders, and our
nation. In Clewiston, we are gath-
ering at noon in Civic Park, across
from the Clewiston Inn. If you
don't have other plans, we would
love to have you join us. We'll
even provide lunch! Wherever
you,are though, please take a mo-
ment to break from whatever you
are doing at mid-day to turn your
heart to our Lord. Prayer works,
and when God's people come to-
gether in prayer, great things hap-
pen for God's kingdom.
From our Nation's humble be-


innings, prayer has guided our
leaders and played a vital role in
the life and history of the United
States. Americans of many dif-
ferent faiths share the profound
conviction that God listens to the
voice of His children and pours
His grace upon those who seek
Him in prayer. By surrendering
our lives to our loving Father, we
learn to serve His eternal pur-
poses, and we are strengthened,
refreshed, and ready for all that
may come.
On this National Day of Prayer,
we ask God's continued blessings
on our country. This year's theme,


"Prayer! America's Strength and
Shield," is taken from Psalm 28:7,
"The Lord is my strength and my
shield; my heart trusts in him, and
I am helped."
On this day, we pray for the
safety of our brave men and
women in uniform, for their fami-
lies, and for the comfort and re-
covery of those who have been
wounded. We pray for the up-
coming election and the future of
our nation. We pray for the econ-
omy and what the future may
hold. We pray for our communi-
ties, our neighbors, our families,
and ourselves.


Prayer is the bridge between
Heaven and Earth. It is the con-
duit through which the spiritual
realm is brought into our every-
day lives. Prayer is the way our
spirits breathe. Just as our lungs
require oxygen and are designed
to seek it out, so our spirits re-
quire the presence of God and
are designed to seek Him out.
We find ourselves trying our best
to pray because it is as needful
as air for our lungs. Prayer is the
method God uses to provide not
only our daily needs from food to
shelter but also comfort, strength
and guidance. The late E. Stanley


Jones, missionary and preacher,
wrote, "Prayer ... is the opening
of a channel from my emptiness
into His fullness."
America trusts in the abiding
power of prayer and asks for the
wisdom to discern God's will in
times of joy and of trial. As we ob-
serve this National Day of Prayer,
we recognize our dependence on
the Almighty, we thank Him for
the many blessings He has be-
stowed upon us, and we put our
country's future in His hands.


Humankind's inherent, natural Joy Of Belonging


By Jackie Miller
All people feel the need at
sometime to belong - to other
persons in a family relationship,
to organizations for group activ-
ity, or in a particular job in order
to express certain innate capabili-
ties.
The desire to belong is really
an expression of man's oneness
with all mankind, which may or
may not be consciously recog-
nized.
Many people become "join-
ers" in order to express this desire
to dissolve loneliness, or distance,
in oneness. They put their names
on various membership rolls and


take offices and enter activities
in many different organizations.
They seek to be a part of the
whole.
Others enter (wisely or unwise-
ly) into certain personal relation-
ships, where they feel the great
need to belong can be fulfilled.
If this is done in the expectation
that fulfillment is to be found in
other persons, then there is disap-
pointment.
Some expect to find their an-
swer in work, in association with
a certain company or industry,
where they have a sense of be-
longing. This is good, and work
- the expression of man's pow-
ers and abilities - is necessary


to every individual. But even the
satisfactory use of one's talents in
a congenial atmosphere will not
completely gratify his needs to
belong.
Essentially, man needs to be-
long because he is a part of his
universe. He requires within him-
self an awareness of his relation-
ships with all men everywhere,
and with all good in the world.
This need can never be satisfied
simply by joining or expressing in
outer ways, but must be resolved
within the individual as the real-
ization of oneness.
Most people, in their own
mind, set themselves apart from
others, emphasizing differences


rather than similarities, disagree-
ment rather than agreement.
Even though they may belong to
organizations, in the very process
of belonging they divide them-
selves up into factions. In family
groups, they build differences of
opinion into fissures of separa-
tion. And in business, failure to
receive personal credit or acclaim
for a job well done may result in a
sense of separateness.
Do you realize that you are a
part of mankind? As a person,
you belong to the human race,
and if you would truly experience
the joy of belonging you must re-
alize this.
You may not be in accord with


everything that others think or
feel or express, but essentially,
in your own spiritual nature, you
are one with the good in all men,
whether or not you can see it at
a given time. The need to belong
is an inner need to recognize this
oneness with good everywhere.
If you continue to think of your-
self as separate and apart, and to
emphasize differences, you will
be just one puny human being.
But man was create for oneness,
for belonging to the overall plan
of good.
Try thinking of yourself as be-
longing in this great plan, realize
your oneness with the good in all
men, and you will find the true


joy of belonging. Jesus prayed in
John 17:20-21 "Neither pray I for
these alone (the apostles) but for
them also that shall believe on me
through their word, THAT THEY
ALL MAY BE ONE, as thou Father
art in me, and I in thee, that they
MAY BE ONE in us, that the world
may believe that thou didn't send
me."
The basis for Christian Unity
is the word of the Apostles who
were divinely inspired. God is
not the author of confusion, but
peace.

Florida receives International Reading Award


Just Read, Florida!
initiative recognized
with Five-Star Award

TALLAHASSEE - Florida was
recently announced as one of
only two states to receive a Five-
Star Policy Award from the In-
ternational Reading Association
(IRA) this year.
The award is part of the IRA's
Five-Star Policy Recognition Pro-
gram, which encourages states


and provinces to adopt and im-
plement policies that support ef-
fective literacy instruction for all
children. Since the program's in-
ception in 2001, only eight states
have earned the award.
"This award serves as further
verification that Florida 's reading
initiatives and strategies are mak-
ing a difference," said Education
Commissioner Eric J. Smith. "I
commend the Just Read, Florida !
team for the unwavering commit-
ment they have shown in provid-
ing Florida's children with the gift


of literacy."
The award will be officially
presented during the Council
Awards Ceremony in Atlanta on
Sunday, May 4.
Florida is being recognized for
completing stage one of the Five-
Star Policy Award comprehensive
two-stage, two-year process:
* Stage 1: State or provincial
IRA councils begin the recogni-
tion process by completing nomi-
nation forms for their state or
province.
Based on the information


provided in the forms, IRA will
determine whether the state or
province has promising policies
in each of the five star areas.
* Stage 2: The state or pro-
vincial council will work with
government officials and repre-
sentatives of IRA to determine if
the promising policies are being
implemented.
Just Read, Florida ! makes
reading a priority in Florida 's
public schools and among the
community groups and volunteer
organizations that support them.

And yet another Rose for the ages


Dan Culbert - Extension
Horticulture Agent
Beyond the stresses of daily
life, gardening can be a way to re'
lax and enjoy what's right with the
world. Because we have recently
endured more than our share
of challenging events, I have re-
solved to write something attrac-
tive for the home and garden that
can help us move into a special
place in your Florida Yard.
Today's column will introduce
a very nice plant that can be en-
joyed by anyone, the Desert Rose.
If you take the time to select and
properly care for this tropical
ornamental, you will be repaid
many times over with beauty for
years and years to come.
The Desert Rose (Adenium
obesum) is a succulent plant na-
tive to east Africa and parts of Ara-
bia. Because it produces beautiful
blooms with little care, it is a fa-
vorite of many gardeners. During
'the summer months in Florida
it will produce large numbers of
flowers with two inch trumpet
like shapes. Bloom can be seen in
shades of pink, rose or white.
' It is a member of the Dogbane
S(Apocynaceae) Family, which in-
c eludes many other familiar topi-
cal plants such as the Allamanda,
s Carissa, Frangipani, Oleander,
and the milkweeds. All of these
g plants, including the Desert Rose,
Contain poisonous substances,
and most will bleed a white sap
w when cut.
The plant itself has very fleshy
stems and will mature to form a
f large fat bulb-like structure at the
Base of the plant. It is a small to
9, ^ ^ ^^ ^ --


medium sized shrub and can
grow to be 4-5 feet tall. Because
of it short growth habit, it often
looks like a natural bonsai plant.
(It is also a popular plant with
bonsai enthusiasts.)
Three elements: think Bright,
Warm and Dry
Direct sunlight to bright light
is a must for these plants all year
long. A southern facing porch
is an ideal spot for this plant. If
grown in too much shade, the
Desert Rose will not flower prop-
erly and is likely to become leggy.
In darker locations, especially in
humid places like Florida, it can
also develop plant diseases.
It thrives at temperatures up to
90 degrees but will not survive too
many hours below 40 degrees. To
protect the Desert Rose from our
occasional cold temperatures,
consider growing it in a pot. That
way it can be brought inside on
those few days when the ther-
mometer dips into less than tropi-
cal conditions. During the cooler
times, the plant is kept a little bit
on the dry side, as it does better
with a seasonal period of dor-
mancy.
The third critical element to
success with the Desert Rose is
restricted soil moisture. Remem-
ber that succulents require little
water. To achieve optimum re-
sults requires both well drained
soil and careful attention to avoid
overwatering. Water should be
withheld if day-time temperatures
fall below 80oF or the weather is
cool and cloudy. In South Flor-
ida, regularly scheduled water-
ing should be done only during

extended hot, dry weather, such
as our late spring. Be sure to feel
the soil first to insure it is dry be-
fore adding water. When it needs
water, water it thoroughly until
it drains from the bottom, then
don't water again until the soil
dries out completely.
Pots or Planted?
Adenium can be grown in any
container with proper drainage.
Unglazed ceramic pots are best
because they allow the soil to dry
out between each watering. For
the long haul, remember that if a
clay pots are used, they must be
wide enough to allow for expan-
sion of the thickened base of the
stem (the caudex) to prevent the
container from cracking. A free
draining potting mix should al-
ways be used.
Success with direct planting
of the Desert Rose into a Florida
Yard should only be considered
if the conditions are ideal for this
plant. Instructions for preparing a
raised bed of well-drained soil are
available from our office. Be sure
the spot will get lots of sun and
will not sit in a wet spot before
plant it in the landscape.
Nutrition needed by this plant
is normal for other container
grown ornamentals. Best results
can be obtained by frequent ap-
plications of liquid fertilizer (half
strength 20/20/20) when the
plant is in active growth stages.
Withholding nutrients during pe-
riods of dormancy. Slow release
granular fertilizers are also a good
choice.
'Pests and Propagation
Attention to proper watering


and plant placement will take
care of most plant disease on
the Desert Rose. There are few
insect pests on this plant. Scale
and mealy bugs sometime occur
on the leaves. Soap based insec-
ticides should be used, as certain
chemical insecticides may dam-
age the-Desert Rose - so read the
label first. Careful regular inspec-
tion of the plant can catch these
critters early enough to keep them
from becoming a problem.
Growing a new Desert Rose
from existing plants takes a little
care. Cuttings can be made, but
some references report that plants
grown from cuttings may not
develop, the thickened bulbous
base. Seed are rarely produced
by this plant, but if they produce
the long seed pods, growing out
the seed into plants is possible
(it is also available from our of-
fice.) Extreme hobbyists have
even been able to graft superior
selections onto a rootstock with
impressive results.

State title guest falls short for G.C. Raiders

State title ouest falls short for G.C. Raiders]

On April 26, Pahokee's Micanor Regis puts his best effort in

capture the silver medal as the Class 2A state runner-up.


Vanessa Anthony
wins gold, Micanor
Regis wins silver

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WINTER PARK - Glades Cen-
tral's Vanessa Anthony captured
the gold medal in the girls' 300-
meter hurdles at the Class 2A state
track championships in Winter
Park, held on April 26.
Although the Lady Raiders ju-
nior became an individual state
champion, it was bittersweet feel-
ing overall.
Anthony won the 300-meter
hurdles with a laser-recorded


time of 44.90 seconds, but did not
qualify for the 100-meter finals
after finishing ninth overall in the
preliminaries with a time of 16.45
seconds - the top eight runners
overall in each preliminary qual-
ify for the finals.
The most disappointing mo-
ment for Anthony and the Lady
Raiders, however, was when they
found out that they finished third
overall, falling short of their ulti-
mate goal - a team state champi-
onship.
The Glades Central girls would
finish with 30 points, behind
Golden Gate (32 points; Class
2A state runner-up) and Raines,
which won the Class 2A state
championship with 70 points.


"Today, we came in with high
hopes like we wer going to win
the state meet," Anthony said in a
resigned tone.
"We were confident and we
had the total package but things
happen for a reason. Everyone
ran their hardest, we worked to-
gether as a team and we stayed
together."
The finish was especially dis-
heartening for senior sprinter Vi-
onni Brown, who couldn't fight
back tears after learning about
the team results.
Although Brown finished fifth
overall in the girls' 100-meter fi-
nals with a time of 12.53 seconds,
she did not qualify in the 200-me-
ter finals, finishing 11th overall at
25.84 seconds.
The girls 4X100 and 4X400 re-
lay teams each received medals
as they finished fifth (48.99 sec-
onds) and eighth (4:06.38) over-
all, respectively.
Senior shot put throwers
Deasha Everett and Nashay Jo-
seph placed fourth (37-9) and
.fifth (37-1) overall, respectively,
while senior Willisha Wrisper
finished 11th overall in the triple
jump at 32-6.5.
"We didn't accomplish our
goal in the field events," Everett
said.
"Me and Nashay wanted to fin-
ish in the top two in the shot put,
but it just didn't work out for us."
Jemeaul Calnek, the Lady
Raiders girls coach, consoled the
team after finding out the team
results.
"I'm extremely proud of ev-
eryone," Calnek told the girls in a
group meeting.
"I don't doubt that we'll be
back again. I know we're going
to lose a lot next year, but I trust
everyone who will come back
next year will find a way to get it
done."
Glades Central has won a
state-record 10 girls track champi-
onships, the last coming in 1996.
But Anthony, who will become a
senior next year, would love noth-
ing more than for the Raiders to
claim their 11th team state title
before she graduates.
"We gotta bounce back next
year and try to do it the next
time," Anthony said. "I want to
get state for Calnek and my team
next year."
Disappointing finish
for the Glades Central
boys
Willie C. McDonald, the boys
track coach, will have to wait an-
other year to get an opportunity
to capture another state champi-
onship.
The team did not come close
to capturing a state title this year,
even as Travis Benjamin made a
respectable showing in all of his
events.
The senior placed fourth over-
all in both the long jump (22-
10.25) and the 100-meter dash
final (11.00 seconds).
Benjamin also anchored the
4X100 relay team to fourth place
overall at 41.62 seconds.
The 4x400 relay team, also
anchored by Benjamin, finished
eighth overall (3:24.00).
Interestingly, Benjamin per-
formed these events on an injured


right foot, which he sustained
during the April 18 regional track
meet at Miami-Belen Jesuit.
What had helped the senior,
according to McDonald, was that
he applied vinegar and clay on his
right foot, which proved to be a
healing element.
"Travis did a lot of preliminar-
ies and finals at the state meet,"
said McDonald.
"If he would've had more in-
dividual help in the other events,
then we could have done better.
Travis individually carried the
team."
Brunarious McKever, who fin-
ished fourth overall last year in
the 300-meter hurdles, finished
seventh this time around.
The senior clocked in at 40.45
seconds.
The 4X800 relay team had their
best time of the season (8:14.67),
but somehow they finished third
in their heat and 10th overall.
Rantavious Wooten finished
10th overall in the 200-meter race
(22.52 seconds).
The boys team finished 13th
overall with 18 points, well behind
Godby (Tallahassee), who won
the Class 2A boys track champi-
onship with 52.5 points.

Pahokee Blue Devils
results
Micanor Regis won the silver
medal as the Class 2A state run-
ner-up in the boys shot put (52-
10), while Ruth Ann Kinglocke
placed sixth in the girls 100-meter
finals (12.73).
The boys 4X400 relay team did
not place as they was disqualified
with one runner out of lane.
The girls 4x100 relay team
finished 12th overall (50.02 sec-
onds).
The boys team finished 26th
out of 50 teams with eight points
- all coming from Regis.
The girls team was tied, for
44th out of 54 teams with three
points - all from Kinglocke.
Though the Blue Devils didn't
send many competitors out for
the state meet, Emmanuel Hen-
dricks, the boys track coach, put
the whole season into perspec-
tive.
S"This whole season was a big
learning experience for me," the
first-year head coach said.
"There were a lot of positives
such as building a young core of
runners to pass the torch to. I'm
proud of all my graduating se-
niors because they gave their all
and were very respectful.
"Next season, I'm looking for-
ward to seeing the young guys
improve on what they already
learned this year."

On April 5, after coming very
close to defeating Zarak Lawson
in the 2007 final, Kentavious Mar-
shall became the undefeated 2008
singles champion by edging Law-
son 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (3). Congratula-
tions are due to both players for


fine efforts under difficult wind
conditions. Twelve players started,
playing multiple opponents who
ranged in age from 11 to 76.
A week later, under great
weather conditions at Glades
Central Community High School


courts, doubles players enjoyed
a fine morning of competition.
As last year, the seasoned team
of Sandy Weiser - Mark Klein-
field swept by Marshall-Lawson.
The 6-1, 6-2 final was closer
than 2007's 8-1 pro set score, but


Marshall-Lawson seemed to ap-
preciate the lessons given by the
victors.
According to tournament di-
rector Ken Buchanan, turn out
was light but enjoyable for all 10
participants as well as spectators.

Woods
Continued From Page 1

tall eucalyptus on the west barn
road, which was planted as a sap-
ling about ten years ago and now
stands twenty feet tall or more.
It seems doomed, just like the
little cedar, for there is so much
bark missing there's no way we
can un-do or repair the damage.
However some eucalyptus trees
are amazingly determined to
overcome all obstacles and live in
spite of afflictions. It's been said
that these Australian natives have
several layers of bark which gives
them more of a fighting chance
against animals and fire.
A deer path can be easily fol-
lowed even though when it's
in the woods on a forest carpet,
there are no visible signs of hoof
prints. Nevertheless, the signs are
there, especially when their nap-
ping places are found. Amongst
woodsmen it's said that deer
never sleep, they just nap and
that with one eye at least par-
tially open. These napping areas
are amazingly'round and often
the needles and leaves seem to
have been meticulously arranged


for comfort. And always there is
an escape route, that is, the path
that leads in is just that. It's an en-
trance but on one side or end or
somewhere there will be another,
albeit a smaller path that will al-
low the animal to escape if neces-
sary. When the fawns are yet with
their mother, the napping place is
often egg-shaped.
When following some of the
pathways of the woods creatures,
it seems a wonder that they can
get from one point to another so
quickly because the little avenues
bend and turn so often and sharp-
ly that it looks as though they
could get dizzy in a hurry. Rabbits
and squirrels and raccoons race
like the wind, and often it looks
like the little brown soldiers, the
quail, would rather run than. fly.
When following these little
trails, it's not unusual to see an in-
dentation on the forest floor.that's
no bigger than a quart basket. The
creature that makes his bed here
does so as artistically as a wren...
thin, thread-like "hairs" from the
fronds of Sabal palms are usually
on the outside, while the inside
is lined with the soft down-like
fiber that grows behind the boot-
jacks and lichens from any trees
that offer it. And almost always,


there's considerable Spanish
moss tucked in and around the
homey little "bedroom." Loosely
constructed with thread-like twigs
sort of woven in and out which
I've often thought were probably
used for stability. In this part of
our wondrous woodland world
this "nature art" is most likely
that of the ground dove which is
the smallest of Florida doves and
"usta" be known as the Eastern
Ground Dove.
Islands of saw palmettos are
wondrous shelters for wild crea-
tures. Beneath the low, many-
trunked palms, heavily laden with
fronds, wind and rain rarely find
their way in. Thus, the winding
tunnels with little "rooms" here
and there, mostly stay dry and
warm. And the natural mulch-
ing of the dried, sloughed fronds
around the outer rim of these is-
lands, act somewhat as an alarm
system for those inside. When a
predator steps on dried fronds,
the ensuing crackling noise alerts
the inside inhabitants to possible
danger. Some palmetto tunnels
are not more than eight to ten
inches in diameter, while others
can be three times that size. In a
big island, it's impossible to see
the end of any of,them as they go


branching off in various directions
all along. After trying to crawl on
all fours into one of the larger
tunnels to take a look around, it
soon became absolutely clear
that it could not be done without
destroying the intricate makings
of those little roads that highly
resemble long, winding covered
bridges. So there was one thing
to do: back out. There wasn't
space enough to turn around! It's
always a help to be able to see
where ope is going, especially
backwards! The "roofs" of these
islands, being on many levels and
made up of hundreds of fronds,
doesn't let a lot of light through,
which naturally makes the crawl-
ing-in or crawling-out even more
difficult. Even at high noon, the
light that does make its way in-
side these wild sanctuaries is like
a soft, still twilight.
On one early morning explora-
tion when first light was just spill-
ing over the pond, the path was
followed into the hammock...
centuries old oaks and cabbage
palms and one enormous wild
orange tree. With such a heavy
limb cover it was still dark. Not a
sound of morning could be heard,
not even the first songbird or coo-
ing of a love dove. But suddenly,


there was a faint brief snuffing
sound near my feet. As my eyes
became more accustomed tp the
darkness and pale streaks of light
began filtering through the upper
story of leaves, a shell-like im-
age could barely be seen. Stand-
ing statue-still, watching intently,
there was a subtle awareness of
other little scurrying movements
nearby. By this time there was a
bit more light - enough to begin
to see what was going on. There
on the floor of the ancient ham-
mock, a mother armadillo was
frantically directing her six off-
spring back into a hollow, moss-
covered palm log, her snout rap-

a sound nor a movement fror
that little family of wild creature.
Silence reined in the hammo'c
until the birds began singing their
morning songs.
Carefully retracing my steps t6
the edge of the aisle leading intp
that hammock, which we had
come to think of as "the cathe-
dral," the ringing of the old ship's
bell on the east porch and the
inviting fragrance of fresh-perked
coffee met me. I headed in with-
out losing any time. The morn-
ing's adventure was over. It was
time to go home....again.

that moved the entire structure off
its pilings.
"I know some of our family
will be upset since not much of
the original building remains,"
she said.
But the two siblings used the
tour to tell many intriguing sto-
ries. Uncle Bill told of the day in
1937 when the building slid off its
pilings without the help of Mother
Nature.
"No one was hurt, but it sure
was a surprise!" he said. After en-
listing the help of a builder from
Arcadia, the center of the dwell-
ing was removed and both wings
joined at the middle making the
hotel 40 feet shorter. The center
area is now an entryway to the
apartments on the second level.
Mitty said he was born in a


barn during a 1928 hurricane. Sev-
eral grandchildren recalled their
grandfather, Jesse, taking them to
the Indian reservation where he
had many close friends.
"I recall eating food with the
Indians from a large pot on an
open fire," said Judith Luten.
Pam Hedrick Davis and her
husband, Tom, who recently re-
tired from building power lines
across the U.S. for 43 years, said
they were thrilled to return to
Moore Haven.
"This is so much fun. I remem-
ber the smell of Grandma's laun-
dry room, the fresh sheets and
soap," she said.
Family group photos were next
on the agenda as Kip, who could
have been a great drill sergeant,
ordered each family together fdr
photos. As Bill and Betty (Stalls)
Adkins, whose parents, Gladys
and Stalls were married in the
first formal church wedding cer-
emony in Moore Haven, posed,


they reminisced and mentioned
that they have been married for
65 years.
"We went to Kindergarten
together and married when we
were 21. When a new girl came
to school, Bill seemed to disap-
pear, but he always came back.
We were sweethearts all through
school."
They said their secret to a
happy marriage is to practice the
Golden Rule and attend church.
The laughter and jokes grew
louder as a few of the group
boarded boats to move the re-
union downriver to Indian Hills,
the home of Jay and Maureen
Casper, where Pam and Tom Da-
vis served up a groaning board of
appetizers and.five men worked
in front of a grill "as long as half a
football field."
Family .names of Wesley Tay-
lor shouted, "Driven, aggressive
and competitive." Nahda Adkins'
daughter, Judith, exclaimed,


"Wild!"
It was somewhat difficult to re-
cord their diversified occupations
such as news producer, sales-
man, engineer, flight attendant,
pilot, psychotherapist, trucking
.company owner, horse trainer,
glass manufacturer, retired police
crime scene technician, power
lineman, teachers, roadway in-
spector on 1-95, attorneys,,para-,
legal to name just a few.
Kip Adkins is currently re-
searching and writing the family
history book and hopes to com-
plete it this year.
Little did Jesse Adkins, great-
grandfather of these not-so-
ordinary people, know that he
would sire so many fine, positive
contributing citizens. If you, have
been feeling a bit down-hearted
about us Americans, cheer up.
There are millions of good folks
out there. We just need to locate
them and listen to their stories.


Extended family history of the Adkins family


The joys of reunions

By Anne Coffey
S Two years ago, Linda (a former
Moore Haven resident) and Rich-
ard Stanton, farmers from Tennes-
see, and purchased the old Moore
Haven Hotel/bar/boarding house
building which had been turned
into apartments, and again reno-
vated it.
Using simple, clean lines of
design, and matching genuine
wood throughout, they have cre-


ated an interior that is homelike
and decorated with refinement.
The exterior remains much
the same but with permanent sid-
ing and uncomplicated natural
landscaping.
The historic site has become a
great asset to Moore Haven's His-
toric District.
"No one from the county com-
mission or city council has asked
to tour our building," said Mrs.
Stanton.
"We would enjoy showing
them."


Mr. and Mrs. Stanton gener-
ously opened their home for the
entire Adkins family and others to
tour.
As the tour progressed, the
beautiful Caloosahatchee slowly
flowed by.
"We used to swim there every
day with the snakes, alligators and
hyacinths," said Betty Adkins.
Some folks dread family re-
unions.
Reasons for range from shy-
ness to family feuds, usually long
forgotten, or the reluctance to see


our loved ones who have grown
old, and perhaps the stirring and
mixture of emotions that will
surely bubble to the top of the
family cauldron for all to see.
The families of Jesse and Irene
Adkins of Moore Haven had no
such fears.
Nearly 50 enthusiastic and
smiling relatives gathered .at the
old Moore Haven Hotel located
on the southeast banks of the
Caloosahatchee to reaffirm their
love and respect for each other
last Saturday.

Transplanting Trees Revives Pond Apple Habitat


SFWMD Taps
Everglades
Agricultural Area

BELLE GLADE -- Pond apple
trees within the footprint of the
Everglades Agricultural Area
(EAA) Reservoir construction
zone are getting a fresh start in
the rich muck soils of Torry Island
in southern Lake Okeechobee.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (District) is trans-
planting 1,500 of the mature trees
this month to benefit ongoing
habitat restoration work on Torry
Island in Belle Glade in western
Palm Beach County. The project
takes advantage of the availability
of trees as tall as eight feet that


would be completely submerged
in the massive EAA Reservoir
when complete.
"This is a unique opportunityto
enhance environmental restora-
tion efforts in Lake Okeechobee,"
said Dr., Susan Gray, Watershed
Management Department Deputy
Director for the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District. "These
projects and others are important
components of Lake Okeechobee
and Everglades Restoration."
Pond apple trees provide desir-
able habitat for other native spe-
cies, including the endangered
snail kite, endangered Okeecho-
bee gourd and wading birds. Pond
apples produce an avocado-sized
fruit that is sometimes called an
alligator pear or alligator apple,


because of its rough skin. The
trees can grow up to 25 feet high
and survive in the low-nutrient
environment found in the Ever-
glades ecosystem.
Pond apple restoration in
marshy areas .of Lake Okeecho-
bee began several years ago. The
effort has been aided on Torry
Island by student volunteers from
the Arthur R. Marshall Founda-
tion who regularly visit to plant
saplings. Foundation Chairman
John Marshall, a long-time propo-
nent of environmental restoration
in Lake Okeechobee, suggested
using mature pond apple trees
from the EAA Reservoir construc-
tion zone to supplement ongoing
planting at Torry Island.
"We're very pleased to partner


with the District on this worthy
project. The installation of more
than a thousand mature pond
apple trees on Torry Island will
make a significant contribution
to the Marshall Foundation's on-
going effort to reforest this native
wetland," said Mr. Marshall.
In 2007, the District's Lake
Okeechobee restoration efforts in-
cluded planting 1,000 pond apple
trees in the Clewiston area and an-
other 1,725 pond apples, cypress,
bald cypress, red maple, swamp
bay and dahoon holly near Moore
Haven. This year, the District also
plans to re-establish a pond apple
forest in Lake Istokpoga, located
north of Lake Okeechobee with
the planting of another 800-1,000
pond apple trees.
