Progress with PILT and canals


Proposed LDR
amendment fails'
during meeting
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- Positive
progress in PILT funds, and re-
storing access to Lake Okeecho-
bee was reported at the county
commissioners meeting, April
28.
Chairman Paul Beck an-
nounced the arrival of a check


from the state in the amount of
$339,242.
He explained that it was pay-
ment in lieu of taxes (PILT),
which resulted from a lawsuit
filed by Larry Luckey Sr., prop-
erty appraiser.
For many years the county
was denied PILT money for the
state prison facility built in Moore
Haven.
Mr. Beck explained that 41.1
percent, or $139,428, will be set
aside for the school district.
The county will acquire 55.41
percent, or $187,973; and SFW-


MD will receive 3.49 percent, or
$11,839.
Mr. Beck mentioned that the
county's lobbyist, Dale Milita;
and county attorney, Richard
Pringle, were helpful in bringing
in PILT money.
The state had sent a contract
to county government on the is-
sue which contained unsatisfac-
tory wording, according to Rich-
ard Pringle.
The contract left no avenue
to collect the other PILT monies
from previous years.
Mr. Pringle revised the docu-


ment, and now the county may
pursue money from other past
years, and this leaves the door
open to actively seeking future.
PILT funds.
"This will go quite a ways
toward helping us," said Paul
Beck.
Commissioner Robert Giesler
reported on his trip to Tallahas-
see in early April.
He attended meetings with
state Senator J.D. Alexander,
State Representative Denise
Grimsley, SFWMD, Department
of Environmental Protection

(DEP) and other agencies. Since
then he has attended a second
meeting with DEP and county
government.
"I think we must have hit the
right button," Mr. Giesler said. ,
In the course of the meeting 4
motion was approved to submit
a permit application for Pearcd
Canal and Moore Haven Canal td
the DEP, which will be for clean,
ing and maintenance.
SFWMD has agreed to assisi
in preparing the application.

Reports on projects,

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
I GLADES' COUNTY -- Brief, yet
important agenda items were in-
troduced to the county commis-
sioners meeting of April 28.
A bid was awarded to Wright
Construction for renovation of
the old county jail for the cost of
$1.2 million.
This does not include a fee for
the architect.
The renovation will allow the
building to become an extension
of the new Glades County jail,
and provide housing for female
or delinquent inmates.
A request for proposals (RFP)
was approved in connection
with renovation of the old, va-
cated Sheriff's office, which may
cost $150,000.
When completed, it will
house Community Develop-
ment. Florida Power & Light is
expected to donate $140,000 to
the cause.
The county commissioners
agreed to a contract amendment
with SFWMD in order to com-
plete muck removal in Harney
Pond Canal and Worm Cove,
which has also been targeted for
excavation.

Turkeys in the wild


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
The first soft signs of dusk
had just begun to settle over the
pond and the meadow spreading
southward.
I had gone to the porch steps
to sit and hear the first sounds of
the night birds when suddenly
there was an urgent clucking from
the pond's west bank and I simply
thought the hens were coming for
a late supper.
Shelled corn had been thrown
out earlier so I just continued to sit
and watch.
TWo slender hens waddled
slowly up the bank, very wary,


looking in every direction until
they got to the corn which had
simply been thrown out on the
grass several feet from the edge of
the pond.
One started eating voraciously,
the other did not peck at the corn
one time! And then, this one hur-
ried back to the pond and over the
edge of the bank.
I think I just assumed she was
going for a drink and with the wa-
ter level in the pond down consid-
erably, naturally all of her could
not be seen.
All I could see was her grayish
head and part of her long neck.
In seconds, the clucking be-

Health Dept. recognizes 'Women's Health Month'


:Women should be
;aware of their
:personal health

* TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
*Department of Health (DOH)
joins health professionals and
.citizens statewide in celebrating
women's health.
: Throughout the month, spe-
cial programs will be dedicated
"to increasing awareness about
women's health issues across the
lifespan and encouraging women
to make healthy decisions.
"This month we celebrate the
extraordinary progress in wom-
en's health research, practice and
programs," State Surgeon Gen-
eral Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said.
"The Department recognizes


the need for continuous efforts
to improve the health of women
in Florida. By taking simple steps
such as having regular check-ups
and recommended screenings,
maintaining good nutrition, and
exercising, women can empower
themselves and improve their
health regardless of age."
"Women's Health Month is a
great time for women to focus on
their health and to explore ways
to incorporate healthy habits into
their daily routines."
Each healthy act may positive-
ly impact a woman's health for
years to come and create a legacy
of health for the generations that
follow," said DOH Assistant Dep-
uty Secretary for Health and State,
Women's Health Officer Tamara
Yang Demko, J.D.
In celebration of Women's
Health Month, DOH will. host the


2008 Governor's Conference on
Women's Health, May 27-28, at
Buena Vista Palace in Orlando.
This conference will pro-
vide an educational forum for
Florida's women and women's
health stakeholders to discuss
issues affecting women across
the state and also identify solu-
tions that will help improve the
overall health status of women in
Florida.
To learn more about the Con-
ference, visit www.doh.state.fl.us/
womenshealth/2008Conf/index.
html.
In addition, DOH will host and
recognize other community ac-
tivities during Women's Health
Month, including National Wom-
en's Check-Up Day, health fairs,
and physical fitness events. Dur-
ing National Women's Check-Up
Day on May 12, DOH will encour-


age women of all ages to be pro-
active with their personal health
and schedule preventative exams
and screenings.
Through regular screenings,
many diseases and other health
conditions can be detected early.
This focus on prevention can
be extended to other aspects of
women's heath including rou-
tine exercise and eating a healthy

A nurse notified E.M.S. and the
little girl was transported to the
Gulf Coast Hospital in Fort Myers
for further examination.
After she was examined at the
Hospital, Investigator Brett Daley
was informed that, due to the na-
ture of the injuries, it appeared the
injuries were intentionally inflict-
ed. Investigators Daley and Keith
Bennett interviewed the baby sit-


ter, Rosa Betancourt, age 59, and
she gave several different stories
as to how the child received the
injuries while in her care.
However, she finally did admit
to striking and shaking the child.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said Betan-
court was arrested and charged
with Battery, Child Abuse, and
Child Neglect. She was released
from custody after posting a
$31,000 bond.

they hold within," said Education
Commissioner Eric J. Smith. "My
thanks to Florida teachers for
helping students master the es-
sential skills they need to be suc-
cessful now and in the future."

A Short Drive to a great Okeechobee Refuge


By Nancy Dale
Looking for a nearby retreat to
kick-back and enjoy nature? The
centerpiece at Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center in Okeecho-
bee is a lush half-acre butterfly
garden where visitors can' stroll
- through a setting of more than
2,000 native plants that provide
a habitat for hundreds of butter-
flies. Arnold's Butterfly Haven
is an extension of the wildlife
conservation efforts of the Cen-
ter which devotes more than 10
acres to homeless and injured an-
imals. Visitors are welcomed into
an "ever-changing garden in mo-
tion," as described by Sue Arnold,
owner and trained rehabilitation
specialist who treats rescued ani-
mals delivered to her care by Fish
and Wildlife and individuals who
find injured wildlife.
The garden replaces what was
previously an orange grove de-
stroyed during Hurricanes Fran-
ces and Jeanne in 2004. Once
the wreckage of stumps and
overturned trees were bulldozed
away, Arnold felt the best use of
.the land was as a haven for but-
,terflies which suffer from dimin-
ishing habitat due to human en-
croachment.
"The butterfly garden grew
out of my own search for peace
when my daughter passed on a
few years ago. I wanted to cre-
ate a place of serenity not only for
me, but for others who visit the
Rehabilitation Center. It became
part of my own rehabilitation,"
says Arnold. "The garden of more
than 60 species of free-roaming
butterflies includes the habitat of


the rarely seen green and black
Malachite and the Cuban Cres-
cent." But, the life of these smAll
delightful creatures grace nature
for only a short time. "Beginning
its first stage as a caterpillar that
hatches from an egg laid by a fe-
male, it, devours the host plant,
forms a chrysalis, and' through
metamorphosis becomes a beau-
tiful butterfly. The process takes
only a few weeks, but they live
only about two weeks then the
cycle begins again," adds Arnold.
Hundreds of butterflies are at-
tracted to the garden's abundant
larval (host) and flowering nectar
plants where they stop to unfurl
their proboscis (feeding tube) to
suck-up the sweet nectar. "The
Butterfly Haven reflects a bal-
anced eco-system for the cold
blooded beauties that gravitate to
heat to lay their eggs, especially
during summer. Arnold says that
"on the hottest day of the year,
you can be sitting in the garden
with hundreds of butterflies clus-
tering around and on you." Many
of the garden's flowering plants
are donated by butterfly clubs
around the state as the Center
operates strictly on private dona-
tions. "We do not buy any of our
butterflies. With the plight of in-
creased urbanization, we provide
not only a refuge for butterflies
and animals but a place where
Mother Nature maintains a bal-
anced setting of bugs, wasps, and
birds in this circle of life," Arnold
emphasizes. The garden, shaped
like Florida's state butterfly the
Zebra Longwing, has "a motion
that blends into the natural, open


setting," Arnold describes.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven
not only attracts native species
but more than 10,000 people a
year who stroll along the maze of
walkways to view up-close and
,personal, many animals on the
premises. 'There ar'& the Florida
panthers (pumas) Arnold raised
as babies; the bobcats; Ringtail
lemurs, aptly named "Maddie"
and "Gascar," classified as an en-
dangered species from Madagas-
car; South American prehensile
tailed porcupines; Kinkajous from
South America; free-roaming
peacocks, chickens, egrets, and
visiting sandhill cranes. There is
Professor Opossum, popular with
children that travels with Arnold
to local schools giving students
the opportunity to observe and
feel the furry animal, introducing
him with an educational lecture.
Arnold also offers guided tours
at the Center for visiting school
groups, speaks to many local or-
ganizations, and at fundraisers.
Sue Arnold has treated thou-
sands of animals, nursed them
back to health through bottle
feedings with tender loving
care, set broken wings and legs,
mended injuries from automobile
accidents, and helped wildlife re-
cover from desertion or neglect.
She trained under a licensed re-
habilitation specialist and has a
degree in medical technology.
She opened the center some 12
years ago and is assisted totally
by volunteers. Eleven-year-old,
Maggie Bucina and Sue's intern
Angela Waldron, prepare pre-


scribed food for each animal. Lo-
cal veterinarians Drs. Jim Letcher
and Jim Harvey of Okeechobee
provide emergency services and
visits as well as Dr. Lee Corbridge
of Sebring, The-Center is-licensed
by Florida Fish and Wildlife anq
the USDA. The Center,'open 7
days a week, lends an opportuni-
ty for visitors to watch a release of
some of the rehabilitated animals
back into the wild, such as the six
Bard Owls that recently reclaimed
their natural territory lifting into
the wind on wings of.freedom.
'Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven is
located at 14895 N. 30th Terrace,
Okeechobee, Florida. Hours: 7
days 10-4 p.m. Adult admission:
$10 and children 12 and under
free. Specially priced admission is

center." "Petty Officer Weger has
flawlessly trouble-shot and cor-
rected numerous electrical dis-
crepancies within the JP5 fuel sys-
tem," said Petre. "He corrected 10
Target Rock valves, 2 Limit torque
valves and a fueling station 16
motor controller. His efforts were
key in keeping the JP5 fuel system
fully operational." Weger's goals


are helping him prepare for the

$2 million for pest, disease research for Citrus


LAKELAND-The Florida citrus
industry is scheduled to receive
$2 million from the state's '08-'09
budget to help fund pest and dis-
ease research.
Sen. JD Alexander, Rep. Marty
Bowen and Rep. Stan Mayfield
were instrumental in obtaining
the critical appropriation which
will help fund research on citrus
:diseases such as HLB (greening)
and canker. Florida Citrus Mutual
worked closely with the legisla-


tors on the measure. The state's
'08-'09 budget, including the
citrus research funding, will be-
come official once it is approved
by Governor Charlie Crist which
is expected to happen within the
next week.
"This appropriation is very
important to the Florida citrus
industry at a time when research
may determine our future," said
Michael W Sparks; executive vice
president/CEO of Florida Citrus


Mutual. "The entire Florida citrus
industry would like to thank Sen.
Alexander as well as Reps. Bowen
and Mayfield for their tireless work
on our behalf and recognizing the
importance of this funding."
Florida citrus is a $9 billion in-
dustry that supports 78,000 jobs.
"HLB has the potential to dev-
astate the industry," Sparks con-
tinued. "We as an industry must
find a scientific solution. We have
more than 100 research projects


currently underway and the $2
million is crucial to making sure
the projects continue unabated."
"Florida Citrus Mutual will
continue to work hard to uncover
all funding sources for research at
the state and federal level."
Huanglongbing (HLB), also
known as citrus greening, has
been. confirmed in 28 Florida
counties and is one of the most
serious citrus diseases in the
world.

Celebrating all of our fish and puppy dog tales


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Fishermen have been known
to exaggerate, but I just returned
from a fishing trip to the Bahamas
where the fish we caught was big-
ger than I would have said it was
had it gotten away. We landed a
66 pound Dolphin (Mahi Mahi).
Can you say church fish fry from
one fish?
That made the trip for some of
us, but one of the blessings of the
trip for my wife was sitting on the
porch, taking in the fresh air, read-
ing, and spoiling Abby and Kallie,
two Bahamian canine friends we
have made over the years during
our spring trips to Hope Town.
Before Kathy packed her bags for
the trip, she packed doggy treats
for "the girls".
While in the Bahamas, we
have the girls. At home we have
Pepper. Pepper is my four legged
child who waits expectantly for
me to get home each night and
excitedly greats me with whines
of delight and great tail wagging
when I walk through the door.
You can imagine how excited she
was when I came home after be-
ing gone a week! Words aren't


Submitted photo
Pastor John, with the 66 pound Dolphin caught in the Baha-


mas.
adequate to describe the recep-
tion I received.
What is it about dogs that
evokes such an enthusiastic out-
reach? Whatever it is, we know
that dogs demonstrate loyalty and
obedience, and offer comfort and
a sense of well-being. They love
us regardless.
Could you imagine what
it would be like if we were to
have the kind of outreach in our
churches, homes, schools and
communities that most dogs
have? Let me suggest ten ways


we can be more Godly in our lives
by being more "dogly".
*Greet loved ones with wag-
ging tail. The wagging tail affirms
that we are home. This is where
we belong, where we live, where
we're safe, and where we're
loved.
*Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs know that eating is a
celebration of life. When people
break bread together, animosi-
ties are dissipated, barriers are
broken down, and friendships are
renewed and strengthened. Eat

with gusto. Enjoy all the flavors
and spices of creation.
*On hot days, drink lots of wa-
ter and lie under a shady tree. Re-
lax, slow down and enjoy. Unplug
and give yourself a time out.
*Run, romp and play daily.
Physical exercise is as important
for the soul as it is for the body.
When we learn how to play and
stretch and get in some exercise
we'll feel better from the inside
out.
*Like dogs, be loyal to a fault.
Loyalty speaks to our relationship
with others - our spouses, our vo-
cation, our community, and our
family and friends.
*When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are pow-
erful dynamics for successful and
healthy living, and are gifts we
give ourselves.
*If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gen-
tly. We all have bad days. We all
need encouragement and affir-
mation. When we are depressed,
we know that it takes only a quiet
word, a gentle touch to bring us
around. Words are not always
needed. A gentle nuzzle speaks
volumes.


SNo matter how harshlyyou're
scolded, be willing to run back
and make friends. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Carrying grudges is a heavy bur-
den. Forgive and forget.
*Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or
do. We can be strong with love;
firm with kindness.
*Bark with vour buddies. Oc-


casionally running with the pack
builds and affirms friendship.
Friends are important in our life.
A friend is someone who knows
the song in our heart and can sirng
it back to us when we have for-
gotten the words.
Closing thought: The reason
dogs have so many friends is be-
cause they wag their tails and not
their tongues.

Construction of hospital in the Glades is on track


' WEST PALM BEACH-As the
Health Care District of Palm
Beach County marks the fourth
anniversary of taking ownership
bf Glades General Hospital, the
'plans envisioning construction of
-a new regional hospital are now
unfolding in dramatic fashion. The
,foundations are in place and the
,steel superstructure has begun to
rise at the site of the new regional
hospital being built to serve the
Palm Beach County communi-
ties bordering Lake Okeechobee.
Construction of the Health Care
SDistrict's 70-bed hospital and
Medical campus, located at the
southwest corner of U.S. 441 and
State Road 80, is right on track.
"It's an impressive sight to see
the steel rising from the ground,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer for the Health Care
District. "The Health Care District
has been steadfast towards a new
i progressive facility and I am proud
of the progress to date."
The new regional hospital is
scheduled to open in early 2010
and will replace Glades General
SHospital, the county's only pub-
lic hospital. While many positive
changes continue at Glades Gen-
I.eral Hospital, the community is
looking forward to a new facility
mvith advanced capabilities.
On April 25, David Zechman
announced his resignation as
bladess General Hospital's Chief
executive Officer. His decision
Awas based on an opportunity
'o join a larger hospital in West
Plains, Missouri. Mr. Zechman's
.ast day at Glades General Hospi-
tal was May 2.
# The Glades General Hospi-
tal Board has named the Dis-
trict's Chief Medical Officer, Ron
tViewora, M.D., as the hospital's
actingg Chief Executive Officer. Dr.
twiewora previously served as
:the hospital's Chief Executive Of-
;ficer one year ago. Dr. Wiewora is
highly regarded by the physicians
end hospital staff for his hospital
*experience and steady leadership,
*which was exemplified during his
service at Glades General Hos-

� "Glades General is fortunate
.*to have Dr. Wiewora back at the
helm working with the hospital's
highly experienced, capable and
resilient leadership team," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "I am
always impressed by our employ-

The construction of the new regional hospital in Belle Glade is moving along as planned. If
everything goes well, the hospital should open in early 2010.


ees' unwavering commitment to
the health of this community and
I know they are looking forward
to transitioning to the new region-
al hospital."
Glades General Hospital enjoys
strong physician relationships, in-
valuable community support and
the dedication of the many vet-
eran employees who have pro-
vided a high quality of care to the
community for several decades.
To support its goals to provide
quality care, over the past year
several significant improvements
have been made in the hospital's
technology, administration and
care delivery. The 73-bed JCAHO-
accredited hospital has developed
a physician manpower plan, re-
cruited a new general surgeon
and implemented a new Emer-
gency Room physician group.


The hospital has also been
moving toward a completely pa-
perless environment. Glades Gen-
eral was the first hospital in Palm
Beach County to offer bedside
Electronic Birth Registry (EBR)
and is the lead hospital develop-
ing the statewide Allcare system,
a shared data computer registry
program that will enable physi-
cians to access patients' medical
documentation from any hospital
within the network.
"It is important that the qual-
ity care our patients receive from
our dedicated and talented health
care professionals be enhanced
by modern technology," said Dr.
Effie C. Grear, Health Care District
Board Member and Glades Gen-
eral Hospital Board Member.
Once completed, the centrally-
located new regional hospital will

deliver an even greater techno-
logically advanced level of care.
The hospital will have 70 single
occupancy inpatient rooms with
additional family-friendly con-
sultation rooms. The Emergency
Room will have 16 treatment ar-
eas, three fast-track exam areas
and six private ICU rooms. A he-
lipad will allow for rapid transport
by the District's Trauma Hawk
emergency helicopters.
In addition, the campus will
offer ample parking facilities, a
Palm Tran bus stop, and space
for future facilities, such as medi-
cal office buildings. The project
is being led by, the Health Care
District's Senior Development
Executive, Michael J. Gates, who
continues to ensure that the proj-
ect stays on time and on budget.
"The Health Care District is


committed to seeing that the new
regional hospital project is com-
pleted in a timely basis," said Dr.
Stanley Pierce, Chair of the Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty Board of Commissioners. "In
less than two years, we will have
the modern medical campus that
we need to deliver quality health-
care to this region."
The Health Care District Board
has committed $50 million toward
the $73 million dollar regional
hospital project. The Glades
Healthcare Foundation, a not-for-
profit organization formed in 2006
to support health care initiatives
in western Palm Beach County, is
leading a fundraising campaign to
complete the project.
On April 9, the Board of Direc-
tors of Palm Healthcare Founda-
tion approved a $1 million grant to
the Glades Healthcare Foundation
to support the capital campaign.
The significant grant will be used
to support the capital costs for
the Palm Healthcare Center for
Better Nutrition, a modern facility
within the new regional hospital
that will provide high-nutritional-
value meals to aid patients in their
recovery.
The center will also serve
as a community destination for
healthy eating and nutritional
education-a critical need in the
Glades region where the popu-
lation experiences high rates of
diabetes and cardiopulmonary
disorders..
"This generous gift under-
scores the importance of this new
hospital project and the need for
other community organizations,-
businesses and individuals to join
us in this worthwhile effort," said
David Goodlett, Glades Health-
care Foundation Board Chair
and Health Care District Board
Member. "With continued com-
munity support, we can expand
the delivery of quality health care


services to this important area of
our county."

Observations


- When things seem bad


Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I am not a great student of
history. There are some things
I've observed, some things I've
lived through and I remember the
words of one historian, George
Santayana, who has stated that
"Those who do not learn the les-
sons of history are doomed to re-
peat them." I have observed that
things can run in cycles and from
what I know, many of the things
that happen to people have hap-
pened before.
Today, there is a lot of impor-
tant news. Everyone checks daily
on gasoline prices, now there is a
limit in the number of bags of rice
that you can purchase in some
stores and the word "rationing"
is used. We use the word "ration-
ing" more readily when it comes


to water usage; the "water restric-
tions" in place seem to have no
immediate end in sight and will
likely continue for some time to
come.
We've already heard about
global warming and the melting
of the ice caps, energy resources
are being stretched with countries
that are expanding their wealth
buying fuels and raw materials,
and then there are people losing
homes and jobs being cut back
with more people out of work.
The news is not good. Through
third hand sources, someone
shared that many young persons
are worried about the re-insti-
tution of the military draft, and
I haven't heard about any really
spectacular success in our war
fronts. The message seems to be
"it takes time" and there appears
to be a lot of frustration and ques-
tioning about what is a "reason-


able amount of time."
I remember some of the short-
ages in the 1970's. In those days, I
ran my convertible in ethanol-gas
mixtures; it was a little cheaper
than gasoline and the car did al-
right on it. Sometimes, gas sta-
tions would only sell you so many
gallons and I spent time going
from station to station to fill the
tank. I have many earlier memo-
ries; being just born before World
War II; I remember my mother
standing in line in the food store
and giving ration coupons to
"Tom" the butcher, and my great
uncle putting candy in his coffee
to sweeten it.
I remember gas ration stickers
on the windshields of cars that de-
termined the amount you could
buy. There were air raid drills and
blackouts when you had to turn
out all of the lights in your house
so that cities could not be visible


during bombing raids. We didn't
have any bombs dropped on
our cities but the possibility was
always present and we were re-
minded of it by hearing the sirens
and having air raid wardens walk
through neighborhoods to tell
you "get that light out!"
With all that was going on, the
nation was well aware of what
there was to pray for, and praying
was something that people did.
Faith was an integral part of life
and churches were full.
People gathered and called
upon God. He heard them. The
war came to an end, and the
prosperity of the 1950's and 60's
that followed was unprecedent-
ed. The foundation of this coun-
try were laid down during similar
periods of hardship, persecution,
people willing to leave the com-
forts of home and come to the
new world where things were


more primitive and dangerous.
Their churches were filled;
they had much to pray about and
did. The story of the Exodus is a
story about hardships and losses
of freedom, and people who call
upon God. God heard them; God
himself calls Moses and tells him
"I have indeed seen the misery of
my people in Egypt. I have heard
them crying out... (Exodus 3:7)."
Then God promises to rescue
those who call upon Him. When
times get bad, salvation and
change come when people call
upon God. The religious fervor
that appears during hard times is
something I've seen in my own
life and in what I've read in our
history through theages. Is God
somehow punishing us? No, I
don't believe that. Is God some-
how mad at us? I believe He may
more pity us for what seems to
be happening rather than being


mad. What I do believe, though,
is that out of bad things can come
good. One of the good things
that has come out of past bad
times has been a restoration of
faith and a new understanding
of our need for God. I've seen it
and read about it before. I believe
that it is likely to happen again.
In the meantime, I hope we find
faith, restore a sense of values in
society, respect the place of reli-
gion in people's lives and find the
fervor:for faith equal to the fervor
of many of those who would take
our lifestyle away.
We will see what happens. If
there is a prophetic element in
what I have learned and observed,
though, it has opened to me this
course that can really make a dif-
ference. God will hear our pleas.
He will answer our prayers.


Be it humble, or exalted, may I fill it with a will


By Jackie Miller
There used to be a song in our
hymnals that said:
There's a place for every work-
er, in the vineyard of the Lord;
Where with all our powers
united, we may toil with one ac-
cord;
There are needy hearts now
waiting, for the help which we
can give;
Let us urge them faithfully on-
ward, let us show them how to
live.
There's a place, oh may I find
it, where my mission I can fill,
Be it humble, or exalted, may I
fill it with a will.
Help to serve, my generation,
with a heart of truth and grace;
Help me, Lord, from this time
onward, find and occupy my


place.
There is no one on earth just
like you. Sometimes people feel
that they have nothing to offer to
thier world.
They wish that they could sing,
preach, paint a beautiful picture,
or write an inspirational message.
Because they can't contribute in
a certain way, they bemoan their
lack of that particular ability and
think of themselves as small and
insignificant.
You need not render beautiful
music, preach a sermon, translate
lovely ideas into paint on canvas
in order to make a contribution to
your world.
Each person has special tal-
ents, and your work is to develop
and express the abilities God has
given you.


If everyone could sing, or if ev-
eryone could write, there would
be no special joy in the expres-
sion of the individual.
But each one has some special
talent; each has a unique ability
that is his own.
And that is good! All of the
varied talents combine to form
the kaleidoscope that makes for
interesting living.
But you may say, "I can't do
anything important!"
Yes you can!
Each one can do something
that fills a certain place in the
overall pattern of good.
But as long as you-deny your
ability to accomplish, as long as
you concentrate on your inability
to do a particular thing, you will
fail to accomplish that which will


bring a sense of fulfillment in your
life.
What do you like to do? Fre-
quently the things you like to do
are the things you do best, and
they may be a more important
contribution to your world than
your realize.
. The one who loves to work
with flowers, or repair appliances,
or do handwork of various kinds,
can (and does) contribute to the
good to others:
A very special talent is the abil-
ity to remain bright and cheerful
under all conditions. The one
who always has a cheery smile
and a friendly greeting is welcome
everywhere.
A good listener, too, fills a
definite need. If you have talent
for extending the. hand of under-


standing to others and helping
them find thier own answers, by
all means use this ability and give
thanks for it. Yours is an impor-
tant gift!
Perhaps your contribution
is in the realm of your work or
your daily activity. You may have
thought it unimportant. Take an-
other look.
You don't have to be a minis-
ter or a humanitarian to make the
world a better place. You can do
it by cheerfully helping someone
make the right purchase for his
needs.
You can do it by lending a help-
ing hand to a fellow worker who
runs into difficulty.
You can certainly make the
world better by teaching either
children or adults, even .though


the material may seem stereo-
typed or routine.
There is not such thing as a
dead end. Nothing is useless or
unimportant, when you put into
it your desire to contributed some-
thing of beauty, or something of
good, to your world.
Don't concentrate on the
things you can't do. Instead, de-
velop the good qualities that you
do have, unfold the ideas you can
express best, and then make your
world a better place to live.
The potential is within you.
You should read Romans 12 and
I Corinthians 12. I Corinthins 12:7
says "But to each one is given the
manifestation of the Spirit for the
common good."


Clewiston celebrates National Day of Prayer

Health Dept. gives tips to prevent mosquito borne illnesses


Tips to keep pesky
mosquitoes away for
summer months

TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) em-
phasizes the importance of pro-
tection against mosquito-borne
diseases.
Throughout the year, DOH
works with partner agencies, in-
cluding the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission,
mosquito control agencies and
state universities, to monitor for
the presence of illnesses carried
by mosquitoes.
"As we approach the sum-
mer months, Florida will experi-
ence an increase in its mosquito
populations," Division of Environ-
mental Health Director Lisa Conti,


D.V.M., M.P.H., Dipl. ACVPM, said.
"Taking a few simple steps can
drastically reduce the chances of
contracting a mosquito-borne ill-
ness."
Symptoms of West Nile vi-
rus (WNV) infection, St. Louis
Encephalitis (SLE), and Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) may
include headache, fever, fatigue,
dizziness, weakness and confu-
sion.
Physicians should contact a
local county health department
if they suspect an individual may
have a mosquito-borne illness.
DOH laboratories provide test-
ing services for physicians treat-
ing patients with clinical signs of
mosquito-borne diseases.
DOH advises Floridians to pro-
tect themselves from mosquito'
bites by following the "5 D's":
*Drainage -Rid the area
around your home of standing
water, which is where mosqui-


toes can lay their eggs.
*DEET - Repellents contain-
ing DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-tolu-
amide, or N,N-diethyl-3-riethyl-
benzamide), are recommended
to protect against mosquito ex-
posure. Picaridin and oil of lemon
eucalyptus are other repellent op-
tions.
*Dress - Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
*Dusk and Dawn - Avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosquitoes
are most active.
Tips on Repellent Use:
*Always read label directions
carefully for the approved us-
age before applying a repellent.
Some repellents are not suitable
for children.
* Products with concentrations
of up to 30 percent DEET are gen-
erally recommended. Other po-
tential mosquito repellents, as re-
ported by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC) in


April 2005, contain picaridin or oil
of lemon eucalyptus. These prod-
ucts are generally available at lo-
cal pharmacies. Look for active
ingredients on the product label.
*Apply insect repellent to ex-
posed skin or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
*In protecting children, read
label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age-appropriate. Ac-
cording to the CDC, mosquito
repellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on
children under age three. DEET
is not recommended on children
younger than two months old.
*Infants should be kept in-
doors or mosquito netting should
be used over carriers when mos-
quitoes are present.
*Avoid applying repellents to
children's hands. Adults should
apply repellent first to their own
hands and then transfer it to the
child's skin and clothing.


* If additional protection is
necessary, apply a permethrin
repellent directly to clothing. Al-
ways follow the manufacturer's
directions.
Tips on eliminating mosquito
breeding sites
Elimination of breeding sites is
one of the keys to prevention.
*Clean out leaves, troughs and
gutters.
*Remove or drain old tires
used in playgrounds.
*Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
*Pick up all beverage contain-
ers'and cups.
*Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may collect
water.
*Pump out bilges on boats.
*Replace water in birdbaths
and pet feeding dishes at least
once a week.
*Change water in plant trays,
including hanging plants, at least


once a week.
*Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage ditches that
prevent water flow.
Monitoring wild bird deaths
can help officials track the spread
of some mosquito-borne diseas-
es. Anyone who discovers a dead
bird is encouraged to report it via
the Internet.
The bird mortality reporting
system is located on the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission's website at: www.
MyFWC.com/bird/. Citizens may
also report dead birds to a county
health department or local FWC
office.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. For more information
on mosquito borne illnesses, visit
the DOH website at www.myflori-
daEH.com, the CDC Web site at
www.cdc.gov or a local county
health department.


$2 million received for pest and disease research for Citrus


Funding secured to
help research the
problem

LAKELAND-The Florida citrus
industry is scheduled to receive
$2 million from the state's '08-'09
budget to help fund pest and dis-
ease research.


Sen. JD Alexander, Rep. Marty
Bowen and Rep. Stan Mayfield
were instrumental in obtaining
the critical appropriation which
will help fund research on citrus
diseases such as HLB (greening)
and canker. Florida Citrus Mutual
worked closely with the legisla-
tors on the measure. The state's
'08-'09 budget, including the
citrus research funding, will be-


come official once it is approved
by Governor Charlie Crist which
is expected to happen within the
next week.
"This appropriation is very
important to the Florida citrus
industry at a time when research
may determine our future," said
MichaelW. Sparks, executive vice
president/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual. "The entire Florida citrus


industry would like to thank Sen.
Alexander as well as Reps. Bowen
and Mayfield for their tireless work
on our behalf and recognizing the
importance of this funding."
Florida citrus is a $9 billion in-
dustry that supports 78,000 jobs.
"HLB has the potential to dev-
astate the industry," Sparks con-
tinued. "We as an industry must
find a scientific solution. We have

FSU researcher: as, gas prices climb, employee productivity plummets


TALLAHASSEE-Rising , gas
prices are affecting more than the
family budget. More pain at the
pump results in more employee
stress on the job, says Wayne
Hochwarter, the Jim Moran Pro-
fessor of Management at Florida
State University's College of Busi-
ness.
"People concerned with the
effects of gas prices were signifi-
cantly less attentive on the job,
less excited about going to work,
less passionate and conscien-


tiousness and -more tense," Mr.
Hochwarter said. "These people
also reported more 'blues' on the
job. Employees were simply un-
able to detach themselves from
the stress caused by escalating
gas prices as they walked through
the doors at work."
Mr. Hochwarter gleaned the
information by surveying more
than 800 full-time employees this
spring when gas prices hovered at
about $3.50 per gallon. All of the
people surveyed work in a wide


range of occupations, primarily
in the southeastern United States.
All drove personal transportation
to work and had an average com-
mute of 15 miles each way.
Survey respondents said gas
prices were foremost on their
mind, including a disgruntled fac-
tory worker who wrote, "I spend
more time at work trying to fig-
.ure out what I need to give up to
keep gas in my tank than thinking
about how to do.my job."
Mr. Hochwarter's research


will be submitted for publication
later this summer. Among his
findings: 52 percent have recon-
sidered taking vacations or other
recreational activities; 45 percent
have had to cut back on debt-re-
duction payments, such as credit
card payments; nearly 30 percent
considered the consequences of
going without basics including
food, clothing and medicine; 45
percent report that the escalating
gas prices have "caused them to
fall behind financially"; 39 per-


cent agreed with the statement
"Gas prices have decreased my
standard of living"; and about 33
percent -- or one in three -- said
they would quit their job for a
comparable one nearer to home.
Mr. Hochwarter's discussions
with employees confirm the
study's results. Many employees
report that gas prices rank as the
No. 1 water-cooler discussion
topic, ahead of family, sports or
work, he said. He found little dif-
ference in responses among dif-


ferent ages, gender, work tenure
and occupations.
"Several employees said they
simply could not escape the me-
dia onslaught of bad news re-
garding the future of gas prices,
and many reported their financial
futures were looking bleaker and
bleaker," Mr. Hochwarter said.
As gas prices rise, so does the
stress. Consider the words of San-
dy, a medical records clerk: "The
more it goes up, the more behind
I get."

McCloude wins gold,
Lewis is a triple
medalist

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN - The Moore
Haven Terriers track program has
been a model of success for many
years, especially this one.
For the first time in eight years,
Moore Haven has produced a
state champion as Antwonne Mc-
Cloud won the gold medal in the
high jump at 6-4 in the Class 1A
state track championships, held
at Showalter Field in Winter Park
on April 25. The previous state
champion in track for the Terriers
was Trimaine Perry - he won the
gold,pmedal in thE long jump at
21-6 bac" in 2000
"Antwor ne steadily improved
as the season pr:,gressed," said
Steve Petti, he 17-year head
coach. "He as , ery coachable
and was considered a hard work-
er. He Jed the team by example.
Even though Antwonne won
the high jump, he didn't put that
above his teammates."
The senior high jumper was
also the high jump champion
in Moore Haven's district track
meet, held at St. John Neumann
School in Naples and in their re-
gional meet, held at the Commu-
nity School of Naples.
McCloud posted a high jump
of 6-6 at the regional meet, while
his best performance of the sea-
son was when he recorded a
jump of 6-8 at the LaBelle Invita-
tional. He was named the MVP of
that meet.
Perhaps the most important
athlete of the entire program,
however, was Venisha Lewis. The
senior, a three-time state medalist
this year, finished third overall in
the 100 meter dash (12.85 sec-
onds) and sixth overall in the 200
meter dash (26.66 seconds).
Lewis finished third in the 100
.meter dash two years, in a row
and it's the first time she placed in
the 200 meter dash finals.
* Maybe the most remarkable


in the beginning of the season be-
tween everyone in the track pro-
gram, including the times when
the boys and girls would warm
up together in preparation for
practices and meets.

The Moore Haven Terriers track program has completed one of the most successful sea-
sons in recent memory. Pictured: Antwonne McCloud, Amparo Aguilar, Elazarus Blackmon,
Keivon Bell, Xavier Fagan, triple medalist Venisha Lewis, KaNeidra McPherson, Joshua Pat-
terson and Tiara Perkins. Also in the picture are assistant coaches, In alphabetical order:
Lesie Hare, Nathan Koetje, Wayne Reese and Norman Spero. Overall, according to Steve
Petti, the head coach, the team earned seven state medals.


achievement that Lewis has made
is that she made five straight Class
IA state championship appear-
ances - all the way back to when
she was in the eighth grade. Lew-
is qualified for the 100 meter dash
in all five years, while making ap-
pearances in the 200 meter dash
and the 4X100 relay team three
and four years, respectively.
The girls 4X100 team, an-
chored by Lewis, finished fifth
. overall at the state meet (51.62
seconds). ,
The girls track Most Valuable
Player. (MVP) for the past four
years, Lewis notched another
MVP honor after winning the
100 and 200 meter races at the
LaBelle Invitational - Lewis' 100
meter time was recorded at 12.06
seconds, her personal best.
Lewis also was the top overall
girls runner in the 100 and 200
meter races at both the district
and regional meets this year.

Catch him if you can
On May 1, the first day of spring football practice, Pahokee
Blue Devils wide receiver De Joshua Johnson makes a
nice catch as he tries to elude defensive back Carlos Lam-
mons in a passing drill.


"Venisha probably has had
more first place finishes in the
regular season than anyone I've
ever coached," Petti said. "She's
not a vocal person, but she's an-
other one who leads by example.
Venisha's always strived to over-
achieve in whatever she does. It's
a pleasure to coach a student-
athlete like that .because she's
self-motivated and it carries over
to the rest of the team."
Petti has led Moore Haven to
16 consecutive state track cham-
pionship appearances, as Ela-
zarus Blackmon (long jump, 100
meters), Keivon Bell (200, 400
meters), Xavier Fagan (400 me-
ters) and Joshua Patterson (100
-meters) also qualified, for the
Class IA state meet.
Though the Terriers girls track
team finished 17th overall '(13
points) and the boys team fin-
ished tied for 20th overall (10
points), the program should not


be disappointed as the archrival
Glades Day Gators program didn't
send any girls to the state meet.
The Glades Day boys team placed
32nd overall (seven points) as
freshman Joshua Thornton
placed fourth overall in the 400
meter final (50.60) and the 4X100
team (Tony Walker, Jarrett Swaby,
Amir Pollock and Earnest Jack-
son) finished seventh overall at
44.25 seconds.
Port .St. Joe won overall for the
girls (79 points) and Westminster
Academy won overall for the boys
(63 points).
"We have a team concept
that comes first, then we strive
for our kids to achieve individual
personal records throughout the
season," Petti said.
Overall, Petti could not have
been much more proud of how
his team performed throughout
the season. He credits the success
to a camaraderie that was formed

Run. run, run
The Glades Central Raiders show everyone why they are
considered the best conditioned team in the state. Run-
ning a series of 'gassers' towards the conclusion of the
Raiders' .first spring football practice, 'held on May 1, is an'
example of that.

us throughout the season," PettQ
said. "It was definitely as team ef-
fort, scoring-wise. From day one,
we had very good attendanceanv
dedication from the team. With
their hard work and commitment
it definitely paid off for us."

SFWMD will add $717,000
to the project, and work will be
done by subcontractors.
Subcontractors will be em-
ployed by contracts through pub-
lic bid.
Glades County road depart-
ment will coordinate with SFW-
MD, and Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission (FWC).


Tracy Whirls, economic de-
velopment director, introduced
two tourism development ordi-
nances.
The first one will establish and
create the Glades County Tourist
Development Council which will
have nine members.
The second ordinance will
levy and impose a two percent
tourist development tax through-
out Glades County, and will affect
lodging for tourists.
Plans are to put this tax refer-
endum ordinance on the Nov. 4


ballot.
Both tourism ordinances will
be up for final consideration at
the next county meeting, May 13.
Ellen Geake, Indian Hills, re-
quested that the vacated volun-
teer fire department building be
used for Indian Hills Community
Association meetings.
She emphasized that no
changes would have to be made
to the structure.
The board approved the re-
quest.
Ms. Geake also reported on


the Glades/Hendry Health Fair
held in February at the hospital in
Clewiston.
The fair attracted 650 people,
which is 150 higher than has been
seen in the past.
About 200 medical students
where sent to assist Dr. John
Geake.
Nova Southeast University
sponsored those students, and
Glades County contributed a do-
nation.
Many local residents rely on
the fair for basic help and disease


prevention.
Ellen Geake mentioned that a
young man in his 20s was diag-
nosed with congestive heart fail-
ure at the fair.
He was taken to the emer-
gency room and then air lifted to
another facility.
"That was a cheap investment
for a high return," said Paul Beck,
chairman.
Commissioner Butch Jones
invited the public to the Memo-
rial Day event at the cemetery in
Ortona.


The event will be organized by
the American Legion.
He also reminded the public
that the county commissioners
meeting of Monday, May 26 has
been rescheduled because of the
holiday.
Instead, the last meeting of the
month will be held Tuesday, May
27.
