by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- There
are a little more than 11,000 resi-
dents in this rural county on the
west bank of Lake Okeechobee.
The largest town is the one mile-
wide city of Moore Haven. The
986 square mile county is well
known to Sheriff Stuart Whid-
don. He patrolled the roadways
for 26 years as a FHP trooper.
After the past four years in
office, he is satisfied with im-


provements such as the new
corrections building and up-
dated equipment for the Glades
County Sheriff's Office; and he
is pleased with dedicated, well
trained personnel. Some of the
things done to improve the safe-
ty of residents and deputies have
been very practical.
The expansion of Citizens
Observation Patrol (COP), with
new additions in Palmdale and
Port LaBelle, have been benefi-
cial to local law enforcement of-
ficers.
There are more eyes and ears


to look for suspicious activity,
and these observations serve to
inform and update deputies who
patrol, or investigate situations.
The older technology of VHF
radios has been replaced with
the 800 megahertz Statewide
Law Enforcement Radio System
(SLERS).
It is a shared radio system that
links communication between
law enforcement and public
safety agencies. Glades was one
of the first in the area to switch
to its use, according to Sheriff
Whiddon.

A laptop computer .program
connecting the officer with dis-
patch has been introduced in
patrol cars.
It increases safety and ef-
ficiency with up to the minute
data which may help the officer
make well informed decisions in
the field.
Once a situation has been
handled, the deputy on patrol
can stay in the area and conve-
niently write a report with the
computer link up, rather than
go all the way back to an office
desk.


Adding another K-9 unit has
been done through the sheriff's
office, as well as switching to
one handgun model that is car-
ried by road patrol.
At one time different types
were used, however using the
same model will let personnel
be familiar with the operation of
one model. Buying only one type
of ammunition is easier, and of-
ficers can supply each other with
the same ammo when they need
to reload.

Community profile
from Buckhead
Ridge
by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

Buckhead Ridge -- Maureen
Bradley has been instrumental
in the effort to receive permis-
sion and funding to restore
navigation to the 'Pearce Ca-
nal in the fishing community
of Buckhead Ridge in Glades
County. The research and orga-
nization began with a couple of
residents and then it grew to a
community effort. The result
also includes the future clean-
up of other county canals that
should have had access to Lake
Okeechobee. On May 23, Ms.
Bradley answered questions for
a community profile.
Where were you born and
raised?...i was born in the
Catskills in New York. My moth-
er died when I was six and we
moved to Pompano shortly af-
ter.
Where have you lived and
worked in Florida?...Pompano,
Deerfield, Fort Pierce, Palm
Beach Gardens and then here
in Buckhead Ridge almost
five years-in time for the hur-
ricanes.
What has been your occu-
pation?...Hairdresser and own-
er for about 20 years, and then
25 years in life and health in-
surance with Bankers Life and
Casualty, then an independent
agent, presently.
Do you have family here
or out of state?...l have two
daughters. Both are grown and
in Palm Beach County.
'How did you find Buckhead
Ridge and why did you move


here?...I was trying to get out
of the rat race in Palm Beach
County, and I love to fish. I was
looking at Okeechobee and
a realtor told me ,about Buck-
head Ridge. I found a place that
day. It wasn't for sale then, but
Sthe Lord steered me to it.
What skills and life experi-
ence did you use to organize
the citizen's action to make
people aware of the canals, and
get the attention of officials?...I
had started a petition because I
was frustrated about the situa-
tion. I didn't know what I was
going to do with the petitions
when.l started.
Then I met Homer Greene
who owns the Marina. at a
meeting he had. We joined
forces and later on met Floyd
Driggers at a Ten County Coali-
tion meeting. Floyd had writ-
ten many excellent letters. I've
always dealt with people and
was a manager with Bankers,
but basically we all wanted the
same thing and you learn as
you go.
Commissioner Donna Long
was a tremendous help. Way
back she offered at a commis-
sion meting to help me design
the resolutions that the board
of county commissioners sent
to SFWMD. She also gave me
contact addresses for what I
needed. After a while the oth-
er commissioners joined in. I
guess they had become frus-
trated, too, with so many years
of nothing getting done.
. When the going gets tough,
how do you keep going?...Two
of my credos are: Lead, follow,
or get out of the way; and be
part of the problem, or part of*
the solution. People are willing
to help. Some don't know what

Navigation will be restored


Over $5 million
to be funded for
Pearce Canal and
Old Moore Haven
Canal

by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

BUCKHEAD RIDGE -- On
May 23, there was cause to cel-
ebrate the stick-with-it attitude
of Glades County people. It
was announced during a meet-
ing in Buckhead Ridge that the
Pearce Canal will be cleaned
to restore navigation access


to Lake Okeechobee. The Old
Moore Haven Canal will be re-
stored as well.
Nearly a year and a half has
passed since residents became
vocal about their fishing com-
munity that found itself with no
access to the big lake. Even the
neighborhood 'canals which
connect their homes was bone
dry, and local businesses went
under. The drought and de-
cades of neglected waterways
had reduced Buckhead Ridge
to a near ghost town even dur-
ing the winter season.
A similar decline of. the Old
Moore Haven Canal and other
waterways of commerce had
left Glades County residents


discouraged with the bureau-
cracy of state agencies. The
people and local government
felt left out of the state's grand
environmental plan to restore
the Northern Everglades, clean
Lake Okeechobee and foster a
mecca for eco-tourism.
Buckhead Ridge residents
Maureen Bradley, Floyd Drig-
gers and others researched old
documents to find out which
entity was responsible for
maintaining navigation. They
got involved in basic civic du-
ties, went to county ,commis-
sioner meetings and commu-
nity meetings. They engaged

Attorney General announces action against Verizon


TALLAHASSEE-Florida At-
torney General Bill McCollum,
Florida Public Counsel J.R. Kelly,
:and Mike Twomey, an attorney
:representing AARP, announced
recently that they have asked the
Florida Public Service Commis-
ssion (FPSC) to fine Verizon Florida
,LLC $6.5 million for repeated vio-
lations of service rules in Florida
during 2007.
SThe petition filed by the Attor-
'ney General, Public Counsel, and
AARP states that Verizon willfully
:violated the Florida Public Service
,Commission's rules for telecom-
jnunications service repairs -262
,times during 2007.
The petition asks the Commis-
,sion to establish a docket to in-
,vestigate Verizon's service quality,
,and requests that the company be
required to show why it should

TALLAHASSEE-A greater per-
4centage of Florida third-graders
,are reading and performing math-
,ematics at or above grade level
,compared to last year according
'to the 2008 Third Grade Florida
:Comprehensive Assessment Test
.(FCAT) results released. The re-
sults also indicate, that African-
:American third-grade students
narrowed the achievement gap
with non-minority students in
,oth subjects, and Hispanic third-
�raders narrowed the achieve-
rnent gap in mathematics.
"I congratulate Florida's third
,grade students for performing at
,or above grade level in the FCAT
,reading and mathematics tests,".
Said Governor Charlie Crist.
"These results demonstrate the
,good work of our teachers in the
classroom and the commitment
?by students and parents."

dents are reading at or above

mum allowable fine of $6.5 mil-
lion for the 2007 violations.
"We expect Florida companies
that are regulated by the Florida
Public Service Commission on
behalf of Florida consumers to
comply with the rules of the Com-
mission," said Attorney General
McCollum in filing the petition.
The FPSC rules that the com-
pany has violated require that no
less that 95 percent of the reports
of service outages be restored
within 24 hours and that no less
than 95 percent of other trouble
reports be fixed within 72 hours.
The petition points to contin-
ued deterioration of Verizon's
repair performance since the last
investigation of its service.
That investigation resulted in
a $2 million settlement in 2001
involving Verizon, the Attorney
General and the Public Counsel.


76 percent of third-grade stu-
dents are performing mathemat-
ics at or above grade level; up two
percentage points from last year.
African-American third-grad-
ers narrowed the achievement
gap with White students by one
percentage point in reading and
two percentage points in math-
ematics.
Hispanic third-graders nar-
rowed the achievement gap with
White students by one percent-
age point in mathematics.
"This year's third grade reading
and math scores speak volumes
for the excellent work occurring
in classrooms throughout Florida
," said Education Commissioner
Eric J. Smith. "I'm particularly
proud of our teachers, who con-
tinue to excel in their efforts to
prepare our students for a lifetime
of success."

The petition filed today shows a
steady decline in Verizon's repair
performance since 2002.
In that year, the company re-
ported less than 50 repair rule
violations for the entire year, as
compared to the 262 violations
reported in 2007, which repre-
sents the worst performance of
any year since 2001.
"Our request that Verizon be
fined $6.5 million for failure to
comply with the PSC repair rules
should deliver a message to all
Florida telecommunications com-
panies that Florida consumers
believe that service is important
and that compliance with the PSC
rules is essential," said Florida
Public Counsel J.R: Kelly, whose
agency represents Florida utility
customers.

a solid foundation in reading and
math is one of the most impor-
tant things I can do for them,"
said Megan Greenleaf, a third
grade teacher at Edward A. Up-
thegrove Elementary School in
Hendry County. "Witnessing the
sense of accomplishment in their
eyes the first time they read a dif-
ficult passage or solve a difficult
problem has been a chief motiva-
tor throughout my career as an
educator."

District performs more water
quality sampling than is conduct-
ed by 48 U.S. states across their
entire coverage areas.
The District laboratory per-
forms 170,000 water, sediment
and fish tissue analyses a year. An
additional 110,000 tests are sent to
laboratories outside the District.
About 35 percent of that work is
sent to the DEP laboratory.
"DEP has developed a niche

director of the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District's Water

that here, the District would have
to purchase expensive, duplicate
equipment that would not be uti-
lized full time.
"Our niche has become mea-
suring extremely low levels of

"Reliable and available tele-
phone service can be critical to
consumers during emergencies,"
said Mike 'Tomey, attorney for

"Verizon's failure to fully com-
ply with the PSC's repair rules
necessarily extended some of its
customers' service outages, mak-

New Sugar Policy Becomes Law


Sugar Producers
Urge Prompt
Implementation

WASHINGTON-Sugar pro-
ducers applauded this week as the
Senate and House of Representa-
tives voted overwhelmingly to
override President George Bush's
Farm Bill veto. After the vote, the
new sugar policy in the Farm Bill
officially became law.
"Today is a great day not just
for farmers, but for all of Ameri-
ca," said Alan Welp, a farmer from
Wray, Colorado and the president


of the American Sugarbeet Grow-
ers Association. "We thank Con-
gress for passing a law that pro-
vides funding to feed our nation's
poor, enhances support for con-
servation, helps wean America
off of foreign oil, and ensures that
U.S. farmers will be around to put
food on this country's tables."
But according to Welp, sugar
farmers aren't celebrating. "The
new sugar policy still needs to be
implemented, and it's our hope
that implementation will take
place promptly because we're
really struggling right now," he
noted.


Unlike other crops, sugar pric-
es are slumping-a problem that
is further compounded by sugar
producers' rising input costs.
The new law is designed to
help alleviate this pressure..The
Farm Bill maintains the existing
sugar policy and enhances it with
an ethanol provision and a small
rate increase on loans that sugar
producers repay to the govern-
ment with interest.
Rick Roth, a Florida sugar
farmer and board member of the
Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
of Florida, says the current eco-
nomic situation is so dire that


producers are considering forfeit-
ing on government loans, Which
could cost taxpayers millions.
"Possible forfeitures are a di-
rect result of too much subsidized
foreign sugar being let onto our
market through trade deals," he
explained. "It is our hope that the
USDA will take the actions neces-
sary to avoid forfeitures now and
in the future."
Because of a procedural glitch,
the trade title of the Farm Bill has
not yet become law, but is ex-
pected to after Congress returns
from its Memorial Day break.


Survey shows high economic illiteracy


'Focus should be put
on personal finance
issues

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Cen-
ter for Economic and Entrepre-
neurial Literacy
(CEEL) released a public ser-
vice announcement (PSA) along
with a new survey that both un-
derscore the need for increased
;education on personal finance
and economic issues.
The national survey conducted
this month shows that an over-
whelming number of Americans
are unable to answer even the
most basic questions about bor-
rowing and interest rates.

Startling highlights from the
survey include:

*69% of respondents do NOT
know that you have to pay both
the interest on your entire balance
,as well as a late fee when making
a late credit card payment;

*97% of respondents can NOT
identify the percentage that ser-
vice fees typically take out of a
$20 ATM withdrawal.

*Over 90% either didn't know


how much the fee would be or
thought it was less than it really
is.

*Nearly 70% of respondents
did NOT identify "FICO score" as
the most important factor in ob-
taining a home loan, when asked
to choose from a list of four fac-
tors;

*Only 16% of respondents
knew that you can withdraw
money from a Roth IRA for edu-
cation expenses, your first home
purchase, and retirement spend-
ing.

In order to highlight this prob-
lem, CEEL's public service an-
nouncement will be distributed
to over 1000 local television chan-
nels across the country.
The PSA features three chil-
dren discussing what their loan
options would be when purchas-
ing a doll house.
The ad illustrates how confus-
ing getting a mortgage can be
especially for those who haven't
been educated on the subject
matter.
You can view the ad http://
econ4u.org/.
"When so many Americans
are unable to answer the most
basic questions about personal


finance and debt, it is clear that
economic illiteracy is a problem
that needs to be corrected in this
country," said Kristen Lopez East-
lick, senior economic analyst for
the Center for Economic and En-
trepreneurial Literacy.

Charliene Denise Ford
Charliene Denise Ford was
born at Halifak Hospital, in Day-
tona Beach, Fla., to mother Sylvia
Matison of Daytona Beach, Fla.,
and father (deceased) Charlie L.
Ford, Jr., on September 16, 1981.
Charliene's childhood was
spent partly in Daytona Beach
where she attended the Montes-
sori Pre-school. However, the
vast majority of her rearing was
in Moore Haven, Fla., where she
attended Moore Haven Elemen-
tary and Moore Haven Jr. - Sr.
High School. She graduated from
high school in the year of 2000.
Upon graduation she further ad-
vanced her education by attend-
ing Florida Community College of


Jacksonville, Southwest Florida
Community College, International
University, and Southwest Florida
College of Fort Myers, Fla.
Charliene's work history was
varied but she mainly worked as
a CNA. In September 2007, Char'
liene's physical condition would
no longer allow her to attend col-
lege or work.
In 2001 and 2003, Charliene's
pride and joy were born; Timothy
La' Clarence Ford and Riyunna
Le'Brenda Joyner. To those who
knew her, Charliene was a very

School, youth choir,, programs,
plays and many other functions.

May 16, 2008, heaven's doors
opened to receive another saint
as Charliene exited her physical
temple and went home to be with
the Lord. (II Corinthians 5:8) Al-
though we view t his transition as
a loss, the Apostle Paul declared
that to die is gain.

Insurance community offers storm tips


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Association of Insurance and Fi-
nancial Advisors (FAIFA) released
its list of homeowners' insurance
policyholder tips to prepare for a
hurricane and tips on what to do
after a storm passes. FAIFA also
provided its number one safety
tip for Floridians caught in a hur-
ricane ravaged zone.
"The time to prepare yourself,
your home and your family for a
hurricane is not when a storm is
predicted or on the horizon," said
FAIFA spokesman Bob Lotane.
"Floridians need to develop an
on-guard attitude, and be pre-
pared throughout hurricane sea-
son. We have been blessed with
no hurricanes the last two sea-
sons, but the 2004 - 2005 seasons
taught us that the entire state is
vulnerable."
FAIFA released 15 tips on what
to do to prepare for a hurricane
and what to do in its aftermath if
property is damaged. It also pro-
vided valuable links to weather,
insurance and governmental
entities that may be useful as a
hurricane approaches or after it
passes.
FAIFA also reminded Floridians
that the majority of storm casual-
ties occur after hurricanes pass
and do not result from the actual
storm. Many of these deaths and
injuries are the result of flooded
areas and people attempting to
travel through them. The depth
or current of these waters are of-
ten impossible to gauge, and live
electrical wires may have fallen
into the water. That is why FAIFA's
number one hurricane safety tip
is turn around, don't drown (We
have to give former Gov. Jeb Bush
credit on this one, but it's so im-
portant we want to keep it out


there). Also, keep children away
from flooded areas and stand-
ing water after the storm passes.
FAIFA Policyholder Tips
What to do before and after a
storm hits
FAIFA recognizes that having
your property damaged can be a
very stressful time, and we want
to help get your home and your
life back to normal as soon as
possible.
Preparations taken before a
hurricane damages your property
and actions taken in the wake of
a storm can make recovery faster,
easier and can guarantee you re-
cover the maximum amount for
your loss. Here are some valuable
tips on how to deal with catastro-
phe and non-catastrophe prop-
erty losses.
Before hurricane season or be-
fore a storm hits:
* Make an itemized inven-
tory of your belongings, including
costs, purchase dates and serial
numbers. Attach' receipts to the
inventory sheet. Consider taking
dated photographs or videotapes
of your possessions.
* You may have made prop-
erty improvements or purchased
expensive items. Review your
insurance policy and check your
coverage limits. Consider increas-
ing your coverage if your policy
doesn't cover the current value
of your home and its contents.
Your agent can help you establish
proper coverages.
* Write down the name of
your insurance company, policy
number and telephone number
to report your claim. Keep it in
a secure, dry place along with a
credit card with at least $1,000
available. Take these with you if
you evacuate and withdraw cash


before disaster hits - ATMs may
not be working. Pay any bills that
may become due in case services
are interrupted or you have to
evacuate for an extended period.
* Consider purchasing flood
coverage from the National Flood
Insurance Program, as standard
homeowners policies do not
cover flood damage. Your agent
should be able 'to write a flood
policy, but it takes 30 days to be-
come effective. Do not wait until
a storm is on the horizon- that is
too late.
* Purchase items you may
need if in the wake of a storm
such as battery powered radios
and flashlights (and batteries for
them), and a generator. Have
enough non-perishable food and
bottled water to survive for at least
a few days. These items could be
difficult if not impossible to obtain
in the wake of a hurricane.
After the storm passes, if you
sustain property damage you
should:
* Keep materials such as ply-
wood and plastic on hand in case'
you need to make temporary re-
pairs after a storm.
* Never use a generator in-
doors or in any enclosed area
including a garage, carport or
sunroom.
* Avoid using candles and
never use a candle or lantern near
a generator or stored fuel.
* Make emergency repairs
to protect property from further
damage. Document the damage
and repairs in writing with receipts
and photo so. that your insurance
company can reimburse you.
* Immediately report property
damage to your insurance agent
and company.
* Once you are assigned a


claim number, keep it on hand at
all times. You will need it to com-
municate with your insurer or
agent about your claim.
* Maintain copies of your
household inventory and other
documentation including photos.
This will assist the adjuster in as-
sessing the value of any damaged
property. Do not dispose of dam-
aged or destroyed property during
initial cleanup. Save it until your
claim is adjusted.

* Take precautions to protect

LICENSED A/C INSTALLERS: I was recently disgusted to find out
after having a new air conditioning installed in my home by what I
thought was a legitimate a/c contractor was no more then a local HON-
EST appliance repair man without a license to do so. After about nine
months of my new a/c being installed, I needed to call my repair man
back out because it was not working and that's when my local hon-
est appliance repairman showed up wanting to charge me for what
seamed to me a warranty issue. After calling a licensed a/c contractor
out for a FREE second opinion to verify the first repair man's finding, I
found out that the repair should have been covered under the manu-
facturers warranty but due to the first "repairman's" non-contractor
status, which is those little combination of letters and numbers on
the side of the vehicles (CAC1234567) means Certified Air Condition-
ing Contractor by the State of Florida that my first "repairman" does
not have. I understand now that without having a state licensed a/c
contractor that he cannot turn in warranties for repair and get reim-
bursed so he passes on the charges to us the consumer. "Repairman"
# one bought, sold and installed me an a/c that was purchased under
a licensed contractor name without the licensed contractor knowl-
edge, and therefore, I have an a/c that is flagged by the manufacturer
as stolen property, that I have got to get cleared up now thanks to
the HONEST repairman's help! Because the local building dept. re-
minds me and you to ask for proof of who you're doing business with
and not assume that if they do appliance work that they are also an
a/c contractor. Ask for those CAC #s and look them up online under
www.myflorida.com State of Florida (DBPR) Department of Business
and Professional Regulations to make sure that they are a legitimate
contractor or BUYER BEWARE-trust me its expensive!


The color of summer, flower favorites

. Florida is a great place to grow
stuff. We all know that. Especially
in the months from October to
May.
Those other months, the really
hot and humid ones, not so much.
In my family, we always used to
plant annuals in the spring for a
continuous display of color all
season. It was required.
When I arrived in Florida it
was April and it was not long be-
fore I went shopping for annuals
to plant. Did I have a lot to learn!
I believed the little tags in the
pots. If they said full sun, I com-
plied. Only much later did I real-
ized that those tags are written by
folks in Minnesota.
Our full sun is more intense,
our humidity is more intense, and
then add to that our alternating
heavy rains or drought! It takes
a pretty tough flower to thrive all
summer in our sunny beds.
It took me a few years and lots
of dollars to really understand
this. I also learned that many of
our perennials have a longer
season of bloom than those up
north, and annuals aren't quite so

New council sets to
focus on local
economy, tourism

By Charles M. Murphy
Independent Newspapers
The Glades County Board of
County Commissioners estab-
lished a tourist development
council in an effort to improve
their economy and their tourism
industry at their regular meeting
on Tuesday.
The TDC will attempt to collect
a new bed tax on motel rooms.
The board will comprise of one
elected official of the County, one
member from Moore Haven City
Council, and six members from
the tourist industry or who are in-
terested in the tourist industry.
A referendum will be held
later this year to see if voters sup-
port a bed tax on motel and hotel
rooms.
County Manager Wendell Tay-
lor said the proposed tax would
raise about $36,000 per year that
would be used to promote the
Glades County Tourism industry.


School Superintendent Wayne
Aldrich proposed a cost cutting
plan to the County that the school
system recently approved.
The proposal calls for a'reso-
lution to create a .75 millage unit
for four years along with an equal
reduction in capital improvement
taxes for that same period.
School Board Chairman Mike
Pressley explained that state sales
tax revenues have a great impact
on the amount of money the
schools can spend each year.
He noted this was basically a
budget transfer with money set
aside in the past for capital im-
provements being used for oper-
ating expenses.
The public will get to vote on a
referendum later this year.
"This won't cost the taxpayers
any money," Mr. Aldrich noted,
"It's a tight budget year."
In business actions the Com-
mission approved a small scale
amendment to their comprehen-
sive plan for 9.77 acres located on
U.S. 27 west of the Moore Haven
City limits.
The land designation will
change from agricultural residen-


tial to transitional.
The Commission appointed
Paul Beck, Harry Ogletree, Rhoda
Planty, Bill Redmon, Nita Shirley,
Janet Cavin, Patti Pearce, Patty
Register and David Ferguson to
the Tourist Development Council.
Sherri Fleming, the Glades
County Schools Teacher of the
year, was honored along with
graduating honor students at
Moore Haven High School.
Fleming teaches first and
second grade at West Glades El-
ementary School.
The Commission also honored
the Moore Haven senior class
Valedictorian Jessica Concha and
Salutatorian Cole Garvey.
The Commission also heard
an update from the State Depart-
ment of Transportation which
is conducting a project develop-
ment and environmental study for
State Road 29 between Palmdale
and Labelle.
Options are to widen the road
to four lanes or to create an en-
tirely new two lane road. Any
construction is likely many years
away.
Mr. Taylor also submitted a


draft ordinance for mandatory
solid waste pick up. He noted a
workshop could be held in July to
iron out the final ordinance.
He noted the City of Moore
Haven recently approved, a reso-
lution that supports mandatory
pick up in.the city limits.
The Commission will hold a
retreat on May 21-22, at Lakeport
Estates Clubhouse starting at 9
a.m.
They will discuss future financ-
es, and future development proj-
ects like the Muse Village which
could attend several thousand
new homes.
Fire Chief Bob Jones noted the
lake fire grew to 10,000 acres on
Monday.
The main problem from the
fire has been smoke onto resi-
dential areas in Moore Haven and
areas south.
Chief Jones said another ban
on outdoor burning could be
considered soon if the drought
index continues to grow.

Poll to show complacency in hurricane preparedness


MIAMI - The 2008 hurricane
season begins June 1st. Despite
devastating hurricane seasons in
2004 and 2005, a startling national
survey will show a dangerously
high percentage of residents in
hurricane-vulnerable states still
are not adequately informed or
prepared to protect their families
and homes.
The survey results will be re-
leased at a news conference at
the National Hurricane Center in
Miami, Florida, on Thursday, May
29, which also will serve as the
nationwide launch of the Nation-
al Hurricane Survival Initiative,
an educational campaign to pro-
mote vital hurricane awareness
and preparedness.
National Hurricane Survival
Initiative - a public education


and safety outreach partnership
that includes the National Hurri-
cane Center, FEMA, The National
Emergency Management Asso-
ciation and The Salvation Army.
Corporate partners in the project
include Plylox and Travelers.
The National Hurricane Surviv-
al Initiative produces a 30-minute
television program, "Hurricane
Survival 2008," which will be
broadcast throughout hurricane
season on more than 50 televi-
sion and cable network affiliates
from Texas to Maine.

Proclamation by the President


National Hurricane Prepared-
ness Week highlights the vital im-
portance of being prepared when
natural disasters strike.
Tropical storms can cause
destruction over entire regions
and claim the lives of many of
our citizens. We can help reduce
vulnerability in our communities
by encouraging all citizens to be
prepared and to work together.
Maintaining emergency supply
kits and family communication
plans, and knowing what to do in
an emergency can help save lives.
For more information on hur-
ricane preparedness, Americans
can visit ready.gov and fema.gov
to find checklists and other valu-
able resources to help them get
prepared.
My Administration continues
to support efforts to strengthen
how Americans prepare for and
respond to disasters. The Nation-


al Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
roinistration works to predict and
track storms so that citizens are
more aware of potential storms.
The Department of Homeland Se-
curity's Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) has im-
proved communication between
Federal, State, local government,
and the private sector in order to
help citizens stay informed and
receive the help they need. By
working together, we can better
prepare for, respond to, and re-
cover from hurricanes and reduce
the harm to our citizens and our
communities.
As hurricane season approach-
es, we also express our gratitude
to the volunteers and first re-
sponders who help their fellow
citizens in their time of need.
Now, therefore, I, George W.
Bush, President of the United
States of America, by virtue of


the authority vested in me by the
Constitution and the laws of the
United States, do hereby proclaim
May 25 through May 31, 2008, as
National Hurricane Preparedness
Week. I call upon government
agencies, private organizations,
schools, and the media to share
information about hurricane pre-
paredness. I also urge all Ameri-
cans living in vulnerable coastal
areas to take appropriate mea-
sures and precautions to protect
themselves, their homes, and
their communities against the ef-
fects of hurricanes.
In witness whereof, I have
hereunto set my hand this twenty-
third day of May, in the year of our
Lord two thousand eight, and of
the Independence of the United
States of America the two hun-
dred and thirty-second.
George W. Bush

Special to Glades Cty Democrat
After inching through the
bramble hedge row along the
old road, then climbing over the
fence along the south line head-
ing north, suddenly in view, there
was the pasture spread out in
striking hues of blue, every shade
from light lavender-blue to royal
purple-blue, all enhanced by the
endless blue above.
Nary a cloud floated in all that
cover of quiet blue stretching to
the edge of the world with Little
Blue squawking his way in and
out the flags.
At first those blue flags stood
straight and tall as if reaching for
the blue above, each one per-
fectly poised with its three petals
artistically arched while its center
spear stood straight and sturdy as
a steeple.
However, in seconds a wester-
ing wind came sweeping out of
the swamp across those green
acres, and those flags, one and
al bowed in one direction as if


as me wind capriciously changeu
directions as if it, too, were re-
sponding to a director's baton.
Heading for the barn by the
slough in a more or less round-
about sort of way to keep from
tromping down the flags, the
slough, usually wet and dotted
with water cress and water lilies,
was a wandering ribbon of blue
running southerly through the
pasture.
Rhizomes of the flags had
found enough moisture last fall
to inch their way to and through
it, and now they were showing
off their first magnificent blooms,
strangely enough, a dramatically
different shade of robin-egg blue.
And the flags themselves were
considerably larger than their sib-
lings in the open pasture.
Little Blue was still squawking
with that raucous voice of his but
but somehow managing to keep
out of sight.
Standing stone still, I kept
thinking maybe he'd take me
for a cvnress stumn and move

came from the far side of the
slough at which time those two
Little Blues made a beeline for
each other.
Not wanting to be an uninvited
guest at their Spring rendezvous, I
moved slowly away, leaving them
to their own private romance. Af-
ter all ...
Following the slough to the
edge of the swamp, the myriad
shades of blue
suddenly gave way to a long
edging of white flags that tucked
themselves
around the dark cypress knees.
The fresh new fern-like foliage of
the cypress
trees was the same gleaming
green as the ferns at their base, a
carpet so dense no sunlight could
.penetrate between their fronds
and new fiddleheads.
Knowing how suddenly day-
light dies in the swamp, there was
nothing to do
but leave the flags to their own
devices for the dark of nioht, hon-

A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appli-
cable time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right tb request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing ofa motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's sub
stantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, EA.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the applications) have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 (sixty) days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45 (forty-five) day review period as established at 42 U.S.C.
Section 7661d(b)(1), to object.to issuance of any Title V permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Title V permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day public comment period provided in'this notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates
to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any Title V
permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W, Washington,
D.C. 20460.

Terrier defeat Sarasota in annual 'Football' spring game


The Moore Haven Terriers
defeated Sarasota Out-of-Door
Academy 43-25 on Saturday night
in the annual spring game at Joe
Brown Stadium.
The Terriers ammassed 548
yards of total offense in the game,
led by quarterback Dalton Britt,


who went 13-20 for 255 yards and
three touchdowns. Xavier Fagan
led the receivers with 8 catches for
160 yards and two touchdowns.
Elazarus Blackmon had four
catches for 60 yards and scored a
touchdown.
Running back Fred Hall paced


the ground attack for Moore Ha-
ven rushing 23 times for 177
yards.
Erick Morales provided some
tough runs for the Terriers in re-
lief of Hall and provided several
tackles on defense.
Josh Patterson returned a


fumble 56 yards for a touchdown
in the second quarter and then
scored a 50 yard touchdown in
the fourth quarter in his lone car-
ry at running back.
"I was very pleased with the
offense," said Head Coach Jason
Bond.


"We executed and played hard
for four quarters. The defense had
a couple of mental mistakes that
cost us some points but I think we
can easily fix those problems,"
said Bond.
"The key to our success for
next season will be having a


strong off season."
The Terriers will start sum-
mer weight training on June 9 at
6 p.m. and also plan to attend a
FCA Camp on July 10.
Those who are interested can
call the high school at 863-946-

Breakout stars emerge in Glades Central's victory


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's soon-to-be junior Antwon Chisolm began the opening drive with a 36-yard
catch from Leron Thomas, the soon-to-be junior quarterback. Chisolm finished with 52 total
yards in the game as he helped the Raiders pull out a 54-46 victory over the Miami Central
Rockets in the May 24 spring football game at Effie C. Grear Stadium.


Glades Day and
Moore Haven win big,
but Clewiston loses

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE - It was a re-
freshing, yet exciting spring foot-
ball game for Glades Central's
fans to watch.
In just a few words, the Raiders
offense was simply unstoppable.
In a 54-46 shootout victory
over Miami Central, there were a
host of breakout stars who per-
f_ formed well enough to garner
national attention.
It's worth noting that repre-
sentatives from Rivals.corr, the
nation's top football recruiting
website, and no fewer than 10
Division I colleges were on hand
to witness this epic contest, held
at Effie C. Grear Stadium on May
24.
.Leron Thomas, the soon-to-be
junior quarterback, was nothing
short of impressive as he com-
pleted 15 of 22 passes for 344
yards and six touchdowns in the
game.
He also finished with six car-
ries for 64 yards, giving him an
overall total of 408 yards.
There were at least three
touchdown drives that defined
this soon-to-be national prospect.
For one thing, Thomas showed
everyone that he knows how to a
win a game for his team.


Tied at 46 with 3:43 left in the
contest, Thomas began the 70-
yard touchdown drive with a 13-
yard pass to Antonio McCloude, a
soon-to-be senior running back.
McCloude finished with 13 carries
for 119 yards and 132 overall.
Then, only three plays later
with just 1:19 left, Thomas aired
out a beautifully thrown pass to
soon-to-be junior wide receiver
Fred Pickett - a 50-yard touch-
down catch that proved to be the
game-winner.
On that play, Pickett ran a fade
route with the Miami Central de-
fenders playing man-to-man cov-
erage - a favorable matchup for
Glades Central's offense.
"The defender tried to play
man-to-man on me and I broke
off the line," Pickett said of that
game-clinching play.
"He tried to push me out of
bounds, but I ran right past him.
L.J. (Leron) threw the ball and I
just jumped up and caught it."
After the catch, Pickett zoomed
straight to the end, eluding the de-
fender as he tried to make a div-
ing tackle.
.Jessie Hester, Glades Central's
new head coach, could not have
been any more proud of the bud-
ding star.
"I watched L.J. (Leron) last
year and knew he had some po-
tential," Hester said of the young
quarterback.
"I told him to be confident
and don't take a back seat to any-
one."

Preparing for Naples
The Clewiston Tigers football team ran a set of 'gassers'
recently as a conditioning drill, which will help them be
prepared for their spring football game against the Naples
Golden Eagles, who are the defending Class 3A state
champions. A message to all Clewiston Tigers football
fans: The Tigers will play their spring game on May 24 at
7 p.m. in Naples.

"L.J. sees what the rewards
can be if the hard work is put in,"
Hester continued. "He showed
tremendous poise and accuracy.
That's what you want out of quar-
terback."
What may have been Thomas'
best play of the game, however,
came on a game-tying 19-yard
Hail Mary touchdown pass to end
the first half, also to Pickett.
The halftime score was 26-26.
Amazingly, just about every-
oneon the field, including Pickett,
had thought that the time had ran
out in the second quarter.
But, as a quarterback should
know, the play is not dead until
the whistle blows.
It looked as if Thomas might
have been sacked on the play, but
he somehow got out of the jam
and made that throw, which only
Pickett could catch.
"First of all, I thought the first
half was over, but when I stopped
running, I saw L.J. keep running,"
Pickett said.
"So, when I started back run-
ning, the ball went up in the air.
Once L.J. threw the ball, I knew I
could catch.this."
Pickett, who finished with four
catches for 111 yards and three
touchdowns, was well-covered
by a Miami Central defender as
the ball went up but was some-
how able to break loose from him
and dive for the catch.
"That was the turning point of
the game because we tried to kill
the clock,'but L.J. had the where-


withal to find the open man,"
Hester said.
"The rest of out team quit on
the play. Luckily, he was able to
stay up and make the play. It was
tremendous."
Rantavious Wooten, a highly-
recruited soon-to-be senior wide
receiver, also scored three touch-
downs, with four receptions for
127 yards, while James West, a
soon-to-be senior tight end/wide
receiver, scored a receiving touch-
down on his own.
He finished with four recep-
tions for 61 yards.
Interestingly for West, he had
initially broke open for a 35-yard
touchdown pass from Thomas
with 40 seconds left in the third.
But the Raiders were charged
with a loss of a down and a five-
yard penalty due to what was
ruled an illegal forward pass by
the quarterback.
Nevertheless, on the very next
play, Thomas threw a 40-yard
touchdown to West, giving Glades
Central a 38-32 lead.
Unfortunately for Glades Cen-
tral, as potent as the offense was,
the defense showed that it has
some work to do, as its rushing
defense allowed an alarming six
touchdowns and 243 yards.
In all fairness, though, at least
two of its top defenders did not
suit up for the game due to inju-
ries.
The pass defense allowed just
one touchdown but gave up 225
yards in the air.
On a positive front, though,
the defensive backs came up big,
especially in the end when Byron
Blake' caught a game-ending in-
terception after Miami Central
tried to tie the game at the end of
regulation.
Antwon Chisolm, a two-way
athlete who plays at running back
and defensive back, also caught
an interception.
Brandon Gainer, the Miami
Central soon-to-be junior running
back, rushed for 144 yards on 18
carries and scored four touch-
downs.
Though he was disappointed
with the Rockets' loss, he made a
telling prediction for Glades Cen-
tral's season.
"Glades Central is a real good
team and they're tough," Gainer
said.
"They didn't really stop our of-
fense but our defense has some
mental mistakes, guys being at
the wrong place dt the wrong
time."
"Glades Central should win
the state championship this year,"
Gainer boldly predicted.
Glades Day 21, American
Heritage-Plantation 3: The
Glades Day Gators proved in
their spring game that the run-
ning game may be a force to be
reckoned with. Brandon Dean, a
soon-to-be senior running back,
scored two touchdowns.
Cody Dionne, a fullback,
scored the other one. On the de-
fensive front, lan Spence, a soon-
to-be sophomore, caught an in-
terception in the fourth quarter.
Jarrett Swaby, a soon-to-be
senior, also contributed big on
defense, recording 12 tackles in
the game.
The game was played on May
23 at Gator Field in Belle Glade.
Moore Haven 43, Out-of.

The reality about Reality Television...


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's time to get real about Real-
ity TV. Is there anyone of us that
doesn't have a little bit of trouble
believing that all of the Survivor,
Fear Factor, Amazing Race, Bach-
elor/Bachelorette, Wife Swap, and
the many other programs that are
thrown out to us as Reality TV?
Get real! How many times
does our real life demand that
we immerse ourselves in a vat
of cockroaches or swallow really
disgusting parts of animals better
left un-described?
How many of us frequently
bungee jump down our office
building to get to work?
When is the last time.a doz-
en GQ/Victoria's Secret suitors
begged for the chance to court
us?
In truth all these new real-
ity shows have no more basis in
reality than the old reality shows
- those that tried to convince us
that "Leave it to Beaver" or "The
Brady Bunch" were what Ameri-
can families were really like.
In both these new and old
reality shows - whether the casts
are professional actors or hand-
picked amateurs - the'goal is to
depict a life that's more interest-
ing than;our own, more exciting
than everyday, more rewarding
than we think is possible in our
work-a-day world.
In other words: If we want to
really live-it-up, we have to be-
come unreal.
We buy into this unreal reality

every time we buy up a batch of
short-cuts to fulfilled dreams.
If we can't live our dreams,
then we'll buy others' dreams in-
stead and pretend they're a dream
come true - and our dream.
Having said all of this, I have
been a fan of "The Biggest Los-
er."
The reality is that I will proba-
bly never take three to five months
out of my life and work out all day
everyday with a trainer and under
doctor supervision.
The reality also is that for a
significant change to take place,
a life-style change has to take
place.
The winners on "The Biggest
Loser" demonstrate that.
Those of us who know we
need to change something in
our lives are also aware of this,
but getting started on the lifestyle

Pastor John Hicks, after a
weight loss of 134 pounds.


change and keeping to it is not
easy.
A year ago, God got into my
face and I was inspired to do
what I knew I had needed to do
for a long time to put His temple
in my body into better shape.
To date, I have lost about 134
pounds.
A number of people have
asked how I have done it, hoping
to cash in on my success. Oth-
ers have said, "I wish I could do
that."
Bottom line, I share with them
that there is no magic pill, no easy
diet, no shortcut.
It required a lifestyle change
and a complete change of eating
habits and learning portion con-
trol.
It required changing from eat-
ing fast food on the go and late
night grazing to eating fresh fruits


and vegetables.
And of course there has to be
exercise.
It wasn't one thing, it was a
combination of many things. It
was a lifestyle change.
Even those who choose the
drastic measure of surgery have
to undergo a life-style change or
risk reverting back.
Have you ever given thought
to the fact that lifestyle changes
might be in order in our Christian
lives if we really want to be all we
can be and need to be?
Not everyone responds well to
the challenge of new life and new
lifestyle.
Some would rather stay in their
familiar rut than risk change, even
if it is change for the better.
Then there are the guardians
of the old reality, wardens of the
expected, and jailers of our junk
lifestyles all around us.
It's hard to get started but
now's the time for us to get real
- to live the real possibilities and
promises of a resurrected life
rather than the unrealities of the
dream life of Reality TV
Our challenge is to let God's
resurrection life return life to our
life, and then to live the real life to
the glory of God and to the bless-
ing of our souls.


The Class of 2008 - A "Commencement"


The. Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A funny word to use for gadua-
tion - "commencement."
Graduation marks the end of
a school course, the completion
of requirements and the .pass-
ing of the last examination; and
one word that is commonly used
about it is "commencement: - not
the ending, but the beginning of
the journey.
I have found that to be a better
description of what has happened
in my life; each time some part of
our lives seem to.come to an end,
they become the first steps' of a
new journey.
Our graduates are among the
fortunate ones.
I heard recently from one of
our county commissioners that
Hendry County has the highest
percentage in the State of Florida
of persons over age 25 who have
not completed high school-46
percent!
Our graduates are among the
fortunate ones; they have some-
thing that will open doors and set
them on a great journey if they
choose to travel the road that God
and life set before them.
I had someone tell me recently
:that my "job" looked life "fun."
I answered that it could be
theirs too if they felt called to
serve, were willing to go to col-
lege and then seminary, and


would meet the requirements set
forth by the church they chose.
There was a changed expres-
sion on my listener's face and I
heard "Oh!"
It took a lot to get from here
to there; the trip wasn't ever easy,
but it was worth it.
My wish for our graduates is
that they find the journey where
God will lead them and stay the
course; that they may find a fulfill-
ing and enriching place in God's
world for others and themselves.
Many of your challenges are
different than ours were fifty years
ago when I graduated from high
school.
SW* ivere becoming more and
more involved in a war in Asia, we
were finding it difficult to get into
college too, Sputnik had gone up
and we found ourselves involved
in a space race, the world was in
a "cold war" and divided into two
international powers that were
struggling to champion their ways
of life.
Two of my closest friends grad-
uated with me and we all began
college together.
One year later, we were all hav-
ing problems staying in school;
one went to work with a large
company, the other joined the
military and I worked to get my
grades up.
The journey of college was
different than high school; the
lessons of self-discipline and
study had to be learned by all


who thought they could "slide
through" college like they did in
high school.
College wasn't free either - it
meant working for the privilege
of going to school.
That meant doing without at
times, not having the free time
that used to be there, learning to
structure days and hours, grow-
ing up.
What it took was different than
I first imagined; life had led me on
another journey than I thought I'd
be taking.
People have shared with me
their stories, not unlike my own,
about finding things differently
thanri planned - but learning to
grow, learn, thrive because of it.
They have learned new things,
encountered new people, had
new experiences; all different than
ever planned or thought about as
the journeys of life were run.
At my recent high school re-
union, the fiftieth year since my
"commencement," we shared
and caught up after not seeing
each other for a long time.
One of my classmates headed
a construction company that
created some very famous sky-
scrapers, another is noted for the
musical scores he has written
for Hollywood productions, an-
other was advisor to our military
leaders, another was responsible
for the guidance components of
some of our space shots, all had
contributed to the world God en-


trusts to us in one way or another;
by hard work and by traveling on
the journeys where we find our-
selves called.
The Lord called His people
together as they were beginning
to move to their promised land
and after they had been given the
formation of His covenant with
them, and He tells them "What I
am command you is not too diffi-
cult for you or beyond your reach
(Deuteronomy 29:11)."
He tells them "See, I set be-
fore you life and prosperity, death
and destruction (vs 15)" and then
tells His people "Now, choose life
(v.19)."
My hope is that those who
have graduated will choose life
too - choose it to the fullest, not
the easiest or journey with the
least difficult, but with the assur-
ance that God is there with you.
He has been with all of the
past generations, and may you
never cease to search and learn
to overcome the challenges you
find.
May they represent to you a
way of hearing God and what He
.and the world have to say.
The journey may seem long,
may seem difficult, and may ap-
pear beyond reach at times - God
is the bread for the journey that
will nourish and sustain - choose
life - choose it for all it can be,
Amen.


Carefully selecting a presidential candidate


By Jackie Miller
Much has been said and more
will need to be said about the up-
coming U.S. Presidential election.
A black former legislator stated
she would vote for Obama be-
cause he is black.
If a white person,had said he
,voted for McCain because he
is white, that person would be
charged with racism.
Women have said they will
vote for Hillary because she is a
woman.
If a man said that he would
:vote for someone because he is a
man, he would be called sexist.
In one state house a vote was
taken to protect the .idea that
marriage is between a man and
a woman.
But someone who said they be-
lieved marriage is only between a
man and a woman deserted their
promise to vote for the sanctity of
marriage and voted against the
proposal saying he had to be true
to his party.
Should the opposite happen
that person would be called a
!bigot.
How sad that our country is of-


ten run on skin color, gender, or
party affiliation.
We need to look at the issues
and stand up for life, morality, and
right regardless of color or party
line.
We should not oppose a can-
didate because he is of a different
color than we are, neither should
he be favored.
When a person kills innocent
life, approves immoral unions,
and are untrue to promises they
made to us, they need to be re-
jected as leaders.
We need to ask leaders why
they follow the party line rather
than moral truth!
We need statesmen and not
politicians. We need men like
Daniel in the Old Testament who
refused to compromise his prin-
ciples of divine truth although
he served in the cabinet of the
nations of Babylon, Persia and
Medes. (Read this short book and
see what integrity he possessed.)
When Daniel is referred to as
a man who "distinguished him-
self," this simply means he had
a spiritual framework or spiritual
reference point in which to oper-


It seems we never talk any
more about the character of the
candidate running for office. We
are so shallow and superficial
in America today that the only
thing that matters is does he play
a saxophone or guitar on the
campaign trail and does he give
me the warm fuzzies when he
speaks.
What about content, charac-
ter, wisdom, truth, or Godliness?
These are the traits and char-
acteristics that Daniel had and
that is why he excelled even in a
nation that was hostile at times to
the Jewish' faith;
The only criticism Daniel's en-
emies could dig up on him what
that he was faithful to God.
What would happen today
if we had men and women run-
ning for public office whose only
criticism would be they loved the
Lord that much?
Or that they took their faith too
seriously?
The reality in post-modern
America *is this: we now fault
a man or woman if they have a
practicing faith.


We now see people.running
for office, when questioned about
their faith, plead the 5th.
Well, Daniel never compro-
mised his relationship with the
one who got him where he was
in his political career.
When a edict was passed by
the king that outlawed prayer in
the kingdom for 30 days, He still
went about his business prayiing
to his God as he did three times a
day in his window facing his be-
loved Jerusalem.
In other words, his value sys-
tem was not regulated by extenu-
ating circumstances.
His walk with God stayed the
same even though the environ-
ment around him became hos-
,tile.
I love it when preachers and
government leaders stand for
what is right regardless of what
public opinion polls state.
Daniel was consistent.
Let's pray that God will raise
up this kind of leader today.

trained to focus on crimes against
the elderly, and a File For Life wal-
let card for senior citizens and the
disabled is available. This emer-
gency wallet card contains the
medical history of an elder who is
ill or injured.
A juvenile curfew ordinance
has been installed at Stuart Whid-
don's request, and more patrol
cars are on the road. A fingerprint
kit for parents hlas been intro-
duced locally, as well as the Cops

Most noticeable is the new
county jail'and corrections/ICE fa-
cility which was opened last sum-
mer. The facility is an impressive


100,000 square feet, and a decent
place for employees to spend a
long work day. Their health in-
surance benefits have improved
lately, too.
"We don't have a big turn-
over," Sheriff Whiddon said, re-
ferring to the workforce.
He enjoys working with the
well trained and dedicated staff;
and working in cooperation with
Hendry County, Okeechobee
County, the Seminole Police De-
partment, and the Clewiston Po-
lice Department.
Stuart Whiddon graduated

dialogue with state agencies and
state legislators;
It was not long until county
government became seriously'
involved, and other lake side
communities lent their support
because they saw themselves in
a similar bind. Use was made of
a letter writing campaign, phone
calliSn'd" commissioners' trips to
regional and Tallahassee offices.


The effort to save navigation,
neighborhoods and small busi-
nesses was noticed by State Rep-
resentative Denise Grimsley, and
State Senator J.D. Alexander.
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection, South Florida
Water Management District and
other counties in the region be-
gan to listen, and then they finally
understood that Glades County
residents wanted to save them-
selves along with saving the natu-
ral environment.
Happily, on May 23 it was


announced by Representative
Grimsley that $250,000 has been
funded for Pearce Canal naviga-
tion improvements, followed by
another $1 million this year with
an additional $4 million over the
next five years. The money will
be used in Glades County for the
Pearce Canal and the Old Moore
Haven Canal.
"You should give yourselves
a round of'applause. We don't
get anything done without your
help," said Denise Grimsley.
Bubba Wade, SFWMD gov-


earning board member, was also
present at the meeting. The gov-
erning board determines the
many difficult decisions, that have
to be made by the water agency.
Mr. Wade mentioned that water
management was totally behind
Glades County.
There is the possibility that
cleanup may start in the next few
weeks, according to county com-
misioner Paul Beck; The SFWMD
and contractors are eager to start
work before the rains begin.

Roadwatch Advisory


MUSE-The two-lane bridge
Along County Road 720 span-
ning the Bee Branch River will
be closed from Wednesday, June
4 intil Monday, Aug. 18. The old
bridge will be demolished and re-
placed with a new, wider bridge
scheduled to open on or before
the first day of school, Monday,
Aug. 18.
While the Bee Branch Rier
Bridge is closed to traffic, motor-
ists traveling along CR 720 will
