Gatorama introduces mystery croc


Enter a contest to
name the new croc

by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

PALMDALE -- Gatorama in
Glades County has been a famil-
iar attraction for tourists and lo-
cal school children for decades.
However, Gatorama is more
than just entertainment. Their
expertise with a captive crocodile
breeding program has been not-
ed, and that is why the park was
chosen to receive a displaced


crocodile that was first sighted
in South Carolina in 2007. It was
seen catching an egret. The six
foot male crocodile was recently
captured off shore from the Isle
of Palms by the South Carolina
Department of Natural Resourc-
es.
Custody of the crocodile was
transferred to Patty and Allen
Register, Gatorama proprietors,
and it was introduced to its exhi-
bition pool on June 12. The croc
arrived in a wooden crate and
was deftly liberated by handlers
Benjamin Register and Tim Chi-.
solm. Right before its release, a


DNA sample was taken so Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife and Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
can determine the origin of the
mystery croc.
The animal is certainly out of
its normal range and officials sus-
pect a collector or exhibitor may
have brought it to South Caro-
lina. According to Patty Register,
the American crocodile ranges
throughout the Caribbean and
southern Florida, They were list-
ed as an endangered species in
1975 when it was estimated that
less than 300 survived. Today,
over 2,000 of these endangered

Allen Register, left, of Gatorama, went to South Carolina to pick up the mystery croco-
dile. Tim Chisolm on the right, Gatorama handler, advises everyone that it is not smart
to feed wild alligators. Loosing their fear of people is what makes them dangerous.

There is a contest to name the new mystery crocodile at Gatorama in Palmdale, Glades
County. Go to http://www.gatorama.com for more details.

crocodiles live here in brackish
and salt water, and it has been
upgraded to a threatened spe-
cies.
Allen Register and wildlife
officials are extremely curious
to find out if the animal's DNA
can be traced to the Jamaican
or Florida population. Mr. Allen
procured the sample which was
immediately contained and sent
to FWC. The crocodile will be
under quarantine for 30 days be-
fore it is released into the croco-
dile community pond.
Fortunately for tourists and
reptile lovers, he can be viewed


for the next several weeks in
his pool along the park's shady
walkway. Allen Register hope
that local children and teens
will suggest names for the mys-
tery crocodile. The croc needs a
name if he is going to socialize
with his new buddies in the big
pond.
They will hold a contest for
his chosen name. The winner
will receive a t-shirt, and will
be photographed with the croc.

Machines that
provide gaming
entertainment at
home

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- In a bid to
provide Las Vegas-style gaming
locally, the Seminole Tribe of
Florida recently unveiled a host
of new slot machines at their
Brighton Casino -- an undertak-
ing 16 years in the making.
As he congratulated the
work of those involved in
making the installation of the
new machines possible, Marty
Johns, general manager of the
casino, said, "We're the littlest
(casino), but I like to think
we're the loudest, too."
Mr. Johns' comments pre-
ceded the ceremonial first slot
machine pull by members of
the Seminole Tribe. Dozens
crowded the area where the
machines were located and, in
the casino that was once used
as a hardware store and then
a hairdresser's, the council
played the first round of slots.
"I'd like to thank God for
what's happening," said Mitch-
.ell Cypress, Chairman of the
Brighton council. "Proceeds
(from the machines) go to
tribal programs for the elderly,
health and education."
According to Gary Bitner,
who handles public relations
for the tribe, the Seminoles
have been working at getting
consent from the state to pro-
vide Class Ill slot machines for
more than 15 years now. Under
the Indian Gaming Federal act
signed into law by President
Ronald Reagan, casinos are giv-
en the chance to provide gam-


ing of any kind that is available
elsewhere in the state. Since
bingo is legal in other casinos,
it was the basis of the arcade
games at the Brighton Casino.
In 2004, however, Florida
voters passed a constitutional
amendment giving municipali-
ties a local option to allow the
Vegas-style gaming. Once that
hurdle was passed, the Semi-
nole Tribe met with Governor
Charlie Crist, and on Jan. 7, the
U.S. Department of the Interior
approved the agreement be-
tween the state and the Semi-
nole Tribe to allow the new
machines to be offered at the
tribe's various casinos.
Now, the machines will re-
semble the slot machines of
Las Vegas, and players will be
playing the house for the jack-
pot. This differs from the pre-
vious incarnation of machines
where players bet against one
another in what more closely
resembled a large electronic
bingo game.
"The biggest difference now
is that you get more bells and
whistles," said Mr. Bitner.
With the new slot machines
in place, the plan is to offer
Class III blackjack, baccarat
and other card games at the
casino, Mr. Bitner said. Officials
with the casino are shooting for
an end-of-the-year introduction
of those games.
"People in Florida won't
have to travel to Vegas any-
more," said Mr. Bitner. "They'll
have it right here."
Richard Bowers, Vice-Chair-
man 'of the council, offers an
encouraging solicitation.
"Win a lot of money, but not
too much money," he joked.
Under the agreement with
the state, the Tribe is to pay $100

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, June 19, 2008


"How can you stand it?" Easy


- See it as God sees it


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When my friends learned I
was going north after many years
in Florida, they would ask "How
will you stand those winters?"
I was born where there were
winters; with snow and ice and
heaters in the basements and
winter clothing, and "all of the
trimmings."
We just lived there; we didn't
think much about it. Later, we
moved to Miami, toward the end
of my elementary school years
and adapted to living in a more
tropical region.
Going to seminary meant go-
ing north once more; leaving
Florida and getting used to win-
ters again.
It was a small price to pay for
the chance to serve God and to fol-
low the calling to ministry. When
I arrived at the Church I was to
serve in the cold climates again,


some of the people there woulc
ask me "Hou could you stand
those hurricanes?" I'd tell them
that "We prepared for them."
The people up north prepared
for winter; the people in Florida
prepared for hurricanes; that was
all there was to it.
Instead of seeing each as
something horrible or bad, we
accepted it as part of what went
with the countryside.
I remember riding through the
mountains one Fall day as all of
the leaves were turning color.
It was as if a giant rainbow
was spread across the earth; the
trees were turning on the rolling
hills and the beauty was so very
special.
I remember going through a
moonlit forest one evening; the
snow in the trees sparkled like
thousands of diamonds and there
was a warm soft light with a very
special radiant glow even in the
midst of all of the cold.
There is something exception-


al about the sunset over our lake
and if I'm out when it is about to
occur, I stop to watch the great
orange ball slowly disappear
and the special warm light that it
leaves while things are slowly are
getting darker.
The "river of grass" that sur-
rounds us is another beautiful
part of the world, unlike others
that we may see and with a beau-
ty all of its own.
Each part of God's creation has
its own beauties and own chal-
lenges. I may feel a bit blessed; I
try to understand how others may
view things and how "the other
half lives."
I consider myself blessed
when I am able to see the beauty
of many worlds, and keep my
ideas about what is "the best" in
perspective.
Somehow there is beauty in it
all; I have tempered any precon-
ceived notions about "the best"
with trying to see it as God might
see it.


The Psalmist who wrote about
all of God's creation and "How
many are your works 0 Lord, in
wisdom you have made them all
(Psalm 104 v. 24)" has contem-
plated all sorts of being and the
things that God has made, and
then praises God "as long as I
may live (v. 33), with a prayer that
his meditation may be pleasing to
God. He rejoices in the beauty of
all that he sees.
This kind of beauty came to
me in another setting one day, as
I was finishing lunch in our semi-
nary refectory.
It was during the Viet Nam
war. It had to do with being able
to see God's creation in other
things aside from just the world
where we live.
Many of the students were an-
gry about the war: some because
of the way our troops weren't be-
ing supported and others because
we were involved in the war in
the first place.
Finally, one of the students in-


vited everyone over to his apart-
ment to pray for our troops and
to support them.
As quickly, another student in-
vited everyone to his apartment
to pray for the others involved in
the fight.
An old professor sat at his
table and announced "You can
come to my houe and pray for
all of them!" and he received a
round of applause for his insight,
transcending differences and see-
ing what God may have seen.
How strange that our enemies
nof not too long ago become
our allies and friends, and what
seemed beyond imagination at
one time becomes something we
take for granted a little while later.
What cannot be stood at one time
is welcomed with open arms after
the passage of a little time.
I have had to ask myself "Do I
see what God sees, or do I feel I
have some special "truth" and all
of the answers?"
I believe what I believe be-


cause it works for me and I be-
lieve it has something to offer to
others; at the same time, I have
been privileged at times to be
able to see the beauty of God's
hand and creation in many differ-
ent things.
I've been privileged to have
many wonderful friends in many
wonderful places, each with their
own views, each with their own
lifestyles, each with their own
ways of doing things, and own
way of appreciating God and His
world.
The Psalmist saw something
wonderful: as I read his words
and try to envision what he ex-
periences, I see it it the people of
God as well as the material things
He made.
I share that with the Psalm-
ist; he knew what he was takling
about!


A 'Dear John' letter that is worth sharing with everyone


Pastor John Hicks
First-United Methodist Church
Is there any son or daughter in
this world who is not thrilled by
the declaration of "I'm proud of
you" from a parent?" I know how
it was for me.
Few things in my life have ever
touched me as much as the words
my dad shared with me in the first
letter I ever received from him. In
many ways, it helped bring the
"Prodigal" back home.
It's a 21 year old "Dear John"
letter worth sharing.
Dear John: Your mother and I
have been asked by Mike Oliver
to write you a letter in support of
your planned "Walk to Emmaus"


in January. It is supposed to be
an opportunity for us to express
our appreciation of you and what
our relationship means and has
meant over the years.
When you were little, I had
the same close relationship with
you that I had with the other boys,
and I realize now that when you
were in Jr. High, I let you down
by not being as involved with you
in your activities as I was with the
other boys.
I also did not understand your
sensitivity to other people at that
time, and when you came home
with a peace symbol, I never gave
you an opportunity to state a posi-
tion.
I had my mind made up, and


did not care to be confused by the
facts. I was critical of your friends,
. and thus alienated you and never
really re-established a close bond
with you.
I regret that now, and if I had
the opportunity to re-run that part
of the race, I would move up to
scouts when you did, to try to
gain back the son that I had "lost"
with a few hasty words.
You are in the correct field.
From the time you were in Sr.
High, I began to see the potential,
and it really came out while you
were in college.
I felt that ministry was where
you belonged, but I was not the
one to whom you came for ad-
vice in those days.


I will admit that I was quite
pleased when you finally made
the decision to enter the ministry,
and I am very proud of you and
your accomplishment in dedicat-
ing yourself to a life of service to
others.
You will never know the sense
of pride we felt at your ordination.
Your mother stood and walked
alone for the first time after the
accident, and held her head high
the whole way down the isle.
That event inspired her to do
what very few believed could be
done.
Your accomplishments in
school, in scouts, and now as
a person have been sources of
pride to us which you will recog-


nize when you have children of
your own.
The greatest gift any parent
can receive is to have a child do
well, and the highest feelings
of ecstasy are realized in the ac-
complishments of your off-spring.
When you do well, we glory.
Keep'up your good works, son,
and hold the hand of Him whom
you have vowed to follow.
Your earthly parents love you
very much, and are very proud of
you. Your Heavenly Father must
be even more so. Love, Dad.
I hope each of you parents is
smart enough to tell your children
how proud you are of them. But
not just parents grandparents,
aunts and uncles, teachers, Sun-


day School teachers, and every-
one else! Just as God said to Jesus,
"You are my beloved sorf. With
you I am well pleased," so do we
need to let those young ones who
are entrusted to our care know
that vwe are pleased with them
-- pleased for the kind of young
men and young women they are.
becoming, and pleased that God
has brought them our way.
Why not write a."Dear John"
letter today and let them know?
(or a Dear Bobby or a Dear Darla,
etc.!) It can change a life. It did
mine.

Consumer Services offers summer food safety tips for the sumner


Cookouts and picnics are fre-
quent and honored traditions of
summer, a time for family and
friends to gather, socialize and
have fun.
But summer outings can be
ruined if safe food handling and
preparation techniques aren't ob-
served.
Hot summer temperatures can
help food-borne bacteria multiply
at a rapid pace, spoiling food and
causing illness.
Outbreaks of food poisoning
that caused illness and death in
other parts of the country under-
score the importance of proper
food handling.
When left unrefrigerated,


many foods can become contam-
inated with bacteria that produce
the dangerous toxins that cause
food poisoning.
These bacteria are undetect-
able by sight, smell or taste and
thrive on foods that are left out for
very long, especially at warmer,
summer temperatures.
Foodborne illness symptoms
are much like those of the flu,
which include headache, di-
arrhea, vomiting, abdominal
cramps and fever.
These signs may not appear
until several hours to several days
after eating a contaminated food.
Food poisoning can be espe-
cially harmful for children, older


adults, pregnant women and
those with chronic illnesses.
Meat, poultry, fish, and eggs
should never be eaten raw. These
foods should be maintained in a
refrigerator at a temperature be-
low 40 degrees Fahrenheit and
cooked thoroughly before eating.
A cooking temperature of 160
degrees is advised. When cook-
ing, use a meat thermometer or
follow these tips:

Poultry
Cook it until the meat is white,
and don't eat it if you see blood or
pink meat.


Hamburger
( Cook it until there are no trac-
es of pink in the center, or blood
in the juices.

Steaks
Can be safely cooked medium;
that's because harmful bacteria in
beef are found on the surface of
the steak, not in the interior like in
ground meats.

Fish


Cook until
is no longer
center.

Eggs


it flakes easily and
translucent in the


Cook eggs and egg dishes
thoroughly. Don't even sample
anything containing raw eggs
such as uncooked dough and
cake batter.

Other tips for safe food
handling, preparation
and storage
Keep foods cold, below 40
degrees Fahrenheit, or hot, above
140 degrees Fahrenheit.
Foods left out between those
temperatures for more than two
hours should be discarded.
Keep cooked foods separate
from raw foods. Cross-contam-


nation of foods could occur
if bacteria-harboring raw food
comes in contact with cooked
foods. Wash hands, utensils, cut-
ting boards and countertops after
preparing or handling raw meats.
'Avoid interrupted cooking. If
you are partially cooking foods
indoors .to finish cooking on the
grill, make sure the food goes
directly from the oven to the hot
grill. Don't let the food stand par-
tially cooked for any period of
time.
Store leftovers in separate con-
tainers and refrigerate.


Ag Commissioner opens "Fresh from Florida" program to industry


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is reaching out to grow-
ers, distributors and retailers of
Florida-grown tomatoes to help
restore confidence in the state's
tomato crop.
In an effort to assist with the
sale of Florida tomatoes now that
the areas in production have been
declared safe, the Department
will offer "Fresh from Florida"
labels and/or point of purchase


materials upon request. Anyone
involved in the production or sale
of Florida tomatoes can call the
Division of Marketing and Devel-
opment at 850-488-9948 or e-mail
mailto: fapc@doacs.state.fl.us.
The logos are also temporarily
being placed on the Department's
web site: www.florida-agriculture.
com, for distributors and retailers
to download. There will be no
charge for the requested materi-
als or for shipping. The material
will be available for ten days. For


continued use of the "Fresh from
Florida" logo, businesses are en-
couraged to contact the Division
of Marketing and Development
for information about Florida Ag-
ricultural Promotional Campaign
(FAPC) membership.
On Tuesday, the Food and
Drug Administration put the areas
of Florida currently in tomato pro-
duction on the "safe to eat" list
indicating they could not be the
source of a salmonella outbreak
that has impacted predominantly


western states. Tomato harvest-
ing is currently under way in the
Quincy, Palmetto and Ruskin ar-
eas.
Commissioner Bronson says
he wants to be proactive in getting
the word out that these tomatoes
are safe, wholesome, and grown
under the strictest regulations in
the nation. He says by using the
logos, retailers can show con-
sumers that the tomatoes came
from Florida.
"We want to reach out to make


sure our tomatoes not only make
it to the retail shelves but also
into consumers' shopping carts,"
* Commissioner Bronson said.
"When they see the "Fresh
from Florida" logo, they will know
exactly where the tomatoes were
grown."
The Department's Division of
Fruit and Vegetables has been
busily issuing certificates with
each shipment of tomatoes, indi-
cating the harvest date and loca-
tion. Nearly four million 25-pound


cartons have been certified since
Tuesday afternoon.
"That is indicative of the popu-
larity of Florida tomatoes," Com-
missioner Bronson said. "I'm
pleased these tomatoes were put
on the 'safe to eat' list. It would
have been a tragedy if they had
been wasted."


Okeechobee County hopes to increase tourism activities, economy


Commissioners look
for ways to stimulate
economic engine

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
At their meeting on Thursday,
June 12, Okeechobee County
Commissioners took a step to-
ward continuing to improve eco-
nomic conditions in the county.
They renewed their commit-
ment to Florida Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initiative,


Inc. (FHREDI) by appropriating to
$10,000 to FHREDI and $10,000
to Florida Freshwater Frontier, a
component of FHREDI that works
to attract tourists to the area.
Those amounts will be figured
into the fiscal year 2009 budget
and is the same amount appropri-
ated in the current budget.
Florida Freshwater Frontier
and FHREDI serve the counties of
DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry,
Highlands. Okeechobee and the
communities of Belle Glade, Pa-
hokee and South Bay.
Cheryl Sharp, interim execu-


tive director of FHREDI, explained
the services offered by FHREDI.
They train businesses in best
methods for exporting and inter-
national trading. The organization
sends people on trade missions to
secure markets for area products.
The organization distributes
brochures in four languages in
foreign markets featuring heart-
land products to promote export-
ing.
The organization did a broad-
band feasibility study. Service
providers are using the study to
broaden their service area and


increase the stability of their ser-
vice.
The organization has identi-
fied sites for regional industry
under the catalyst program. They
visit area businesses to determine
recruiting problems" and inform
business leaders of available re-
sources.
They also train future business
leaders.
An economic impact study
of the current drought has been
conducted by FHREDI.
This will create a baseline for
measuring future events.


The organization also surveys

the need for regional transporta-

tion.

Florida's Freshwater Frontier

promotes attractions and festivals

for the area.

A color brochure produced by

that organization lists 18 attrac-

tions in Okeechobee County.


"We are out there all the time
trying to promote our region,"
said Ms. Sharp.
She referred to advertisements
in travel magazines.
Commissioner Clif Betts noted
that the county is definitely get-
ting its money's money in the ad-
vertising provided by FHREDI.
"They constantly search for
ways to help small businesses in
our area," stated commissioner
Elvie Posey. Posey.

The Slough Awash with Shining Gold


Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
Its been more'n a year since
the blue slough has stretched and
spread out across the soft. green
land. But now its wide ribbons
are reflecting billowing clouds
and birds in flight. These are the
water birds that instinctively know
where the best wiggley creatures
and crustaceans are upon which
they feed.
And goldenrod is galloping
alongside roadways, fence rows
and long narrow division corri-
dors between fields and groves
and pastures. Although this na-
tive wildflower, a perennial herb,
blooms more or less in all sea-
sons in the Land of Flowers, it's
summer and through autumn
when her feathery, arching flow-
er heads are the most striking. It
is not unusual for- goldenrod to
reach up five to six feet. There
are at least four varieties of this
prolific wildflower. Probably the
most widely recognized is Gold-
enrod/Solidago fistulosa. Several
other large Goldenrods include S.
gigantea which is similar in gen-
eral appearance but separated


on small floral differences. And
in many areas there's one known
as Flat Top and another simply
known as Slender Goldenrod.
The shaman of all goldenrods is
the sun, and they have no interest
in trying to live without it.
In locations of open sun to
part shade, the small, fragrant,
white flowers of elderberries that
bloom in fan-like flattish heads
are also at their peak in summer
to early fall. At times it's a toss-
up as to whether there are more
cluster blooms on a plant or more
ripe berries which when fully ripe
hang in heavy clusters of small,
shiny black berries. Another toss-
up is whether to spend available
time picking native grapes or el-
derberries for jelly, jam, or home-
made wine. Since both are read-
ily available along roadsides and
ditches, beside canals and ponds,
open fields and hedgerows,
they're both easy to come by.
There's a question about grapes
this year, the winter and spring
being so dry it'll be a wonder if
there are enough for one batch
of wild grape jelly. Since elderber-
ries seem to just keep on bloom-
in' and keep on producing fruit,
grape jelly jars can be filled with


elderberry treats.
For lack of the absolutely cor-
rect botanical name, we know
them mostly as Florida sunflow-
ers, and that they are. Hundreds of
acres stretch out in full sun from
Route 78, west of the Big Lake, as
well as south toward Big Cypress,
that from the road seem to be
fields of molten gold. The flowers
touch and overlap and entwine
blooming on main stems two
to three feet tall, well branched.
After researching the plants, the
root system as well as the flowers,
the late Dr. Margaret and Walton
Gregory said they did not feel that
this flower that we know simply
as the Florida Sunflower could
be properly identified because of
the countless mutations through
the years with those of close kin.
Thus its common name Florida
Sunflowers. But it is, they said, of
the traditional sunflower family.
As well as growing in vast fields
of hundreds of acres it is not un-
usual for it to grow in islands, or
groupings, along back roads. The
first blooms usually appear in late
summer, the last in late Novem-
ber. The classic, single rows of
petals usually span two to three
inches.


Heavy clumps and clusters
of gold at this time of year can
only be ascribed to one plant,
the buttercup yellow of Cassia/
Senna chapmanii which grows
with multiple trunks as a splashy
shrub or which can be pruned
tree-like. In either case or both,
it often grows up to 15 feet tall,
a brilliant show of color that re-
quires very little if any care. A little
water during extremely dry peri-
ods will improve numbers and
quality of blooms which occur
roughly near Easter and Thanks-
giving. Cassia roots easily and
reseeds itself just fine. It has a ten-
dency to dieback in which case,
simply cut off the dead branches
back to good healthy wood. If at
all possible plant Cassia where
it can be seen coming' and goin'.
It is a picture of smiling cheer
from the ground up. Not unlike
a lot of things in life, or perhaps
in the garden, there is one draw-
back. Cassia does not usually live
more than 8 to l0 years. Thus, to
continue its golden beauty, start
new plants every few years. After
all this is the approach of Mother
Nature. Group plantings of Cassia
are particularly stunning.

Plan now for
November
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0" Hike
around Lake Ok hbee. The
Hike will begin in Pahokee on
November 22, and end at Paho-
kee on November 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk. Hundreds of people
have tried over the years and (for
some reason) only about 20 to 30
percent of the walkers manage to
finish the 9 days.
So plan now and get in shape
for November.
For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the District a me-
diation agreement with all parties to, the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the

ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT
PALM TRAN SATELLITE BUS FACILITY
The Federal Transit Administration has prepared an environmental Assessment (EA)
for the proposed Satellite Bus Facilty near Belle Glade, Palm Beach County, on-
da.
The purpose of the Palm Tran Satellite Bus Facility project is to provide mainte-
nance/fueling facilities for buses serving the rural communities of western Palm
Beach County. This facility is needed because currently, to perform preventive
maintenance, the buses are driven to the West Palm Beach facility (80 miles
roundtrip), a spare bus is sent from West Palm Beach to Belle Glade to cover the
bus scheduled for preventative maintenance, and then both buses have to make
the tnp back. The Proposed Acton would significantly reduce wear and tear on
the buses, reduce response time to breakdowns and minimize service interrup-
tions, and lower Palm Tran's operational costs. The West County Governmental
Center was chosen as the Proposed Acton because a met the requirements of
the purpose and need, would inot incnr -i.1nf'ert 'Orilf l rnm,, r,.,ff r.
physical. or natural resources impacts, ,' ..i .'|T :.. .,..!.. ,- .,, a. :o r ,- I
storage, resulting in annual savings to the County and Palm Tran In addition. this
site is located at a nexus of the existing bus routes and was therefore a logical lo-
cation for placement of the maintenance facility
The EA is available for public review at the following locations.

Health Care District reports on hospital progress


Board meeting in
Belle Glade provides
update on project

BELLE GLADE The Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty's Board of Commissioners held
its public meeting last Wednesday
at the City of Belle Glade Commis-
sion Chambers and provided the
community with a visual update
on the significant progress in
the construction of the new $73
million regional hospital that the
Health Care District is building
to serve the residents in all Palm
Beach County communities bor-
dering Lake Okeechobee.
"The construction of the new
regional hospital for the Glades
is proceeding right on schedule,"
said Jonathan R. Satter, the Board
Chair. "This is the largest capital
project that the District has under-
taken in its nearly two decades of
serving the health care needs of
the people of Palm Beach County
and we feel it is important that
the community understand how
committed we are to complet-
ing this facility." The 70-bed hos-
pital, featuring all private patient
rooms, is being constructed on a
50-acre campus centrally located
at the intersection of Main Street
and Hooker Highway.
Board Vice-Chair Effie C. Grear,
EdD, added, "There is more than
just steel rising on that site. This
will be a medical campus that
will serve all of the communi-
ties in the Glades. The techno-
logically-advanced hospital will
deliver quality care, help attract
new physicians and provide a sig-
nificant economic stimulus to the
region."
Dwight D. Chenette, Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer of the Health Care
District, presented a slide show of
photographs at the meeting to il-
lustrate how far the new regional
hospital project has progressed
since 2006, when use of the state-
owned land was approved for
medical purposes and the State


authorized leasing the site to the
Health Care District.
"The new regional hospital
construction project is on budget
and on schedule," said Mr. Chen-
ette. "The foundations are in
place and the steel superstructure
is rising. When the doors open,
the new regional hospital will of-
fer all private rooms for patient
comfort and privacy."
The new hospital, which is ex-
pected to be completed in early
2010, features 70 single-occupan-
cy
inpatient rooms as well as addi-
tional family-friendly consultation
rooms. The Emergency Room
will have 16 treatment areas and
provide direct access to the CAT
Scan and Radiology rooms. Two
Operating Rooms will allow for a
range of complex surgeries. The
new hospital also features six
private Critical Care rooms with
a nearby dedicated consultation
room. The modern Labor and
Delivery Area includes six private
Labor and Delivery Rooms and
10 private post-partum rooms. A
large nursery area affords new
parents private viewing windows
and environmentally sensitive
lighting.
The new hospital will also have
a meditation area and a Commu-
nity Education Room, providing
dedicated classroom and meet-
ing space to offer educational
programs about health topics
such as prenatal care, wellness
and nutrition. A recent $1 mil-
lion grant from Palm Healthcare
Foundation to the Glades Health-
care Foundation will support the
capital costs for the new hospi-
tal's "Palm Healthcare Center for
Better Nutrition." The center will
promote healthy eating and pro-
vide nutritional meals for patients,
important services for a popula-
tion with a high rate of diabetes
and heart disorders.
A large helipad close to the
Emergency Room will allow for
rapid transport by the Health Care
District's Trauma Hawk emergen-
cy helicopters as well as support-


ing regional institutions. The new
hospital features ample, acces-
sible and well-lit parking as well
as a two-bav Palmn Tran bus stop
and space for future facilities.
During the presentation to tlhe
community. Michael J. Gates, the
Senior Development Executive
for the Health Care District, point-
ed out how concrete tilt-walls will
soon be hoisted into place. The
tilt-wall construction is just one of
the project's hurricane-resistant
design features; others include
elevated generators, large water
and fuel storage capacity, impact-
resistant glass and high and dry
building elevation.
At a time when construction
costs are rising, Mr. Gates said,
"We're fortunate that we were
able to bid the project during a
very short dip in the commercial
construction market before the
energy-related inflation began
that everyone is experiencing
currently. Construction prices are
anticipated to increase due to the
higher costs of diesel fuel, gaso-
line, steel and copper driven by
worldwide demand."
The project team, led by Mr.
Gates, consists of the design firm
Gresham Smith and Partners and
construction managers Skanska
U.S.A. Building, Inc. as well as
their associated sub-contractors.
Over the course of the past
month, Mr. Chenette and Mr.
Gates made similar update pre-
sentations
regarding the new hospital
construction project before the
City Commissions in Pahokee,
Belle Glade and South Bay. During
these meetings, they emphasized
that the Health Care District is en-
couraging project sub-contractors
to hire qualified and skilled work-
ers who live in the Glades and that
this initiative is beginning to take
root. The Health Care District and
its construction manager Skanska
USA have been meeting with each
of the selected sub-contractors
and Workforce Alliance to insure
that their candidate-matching
program is formally introduced.


The office of Workforce Alliance
in Belle Glade is coordinating the
job application process to inatch
qualified and skilled Glades-basedl
applicants with project sub-con-
tractor needs. Workforce Alliance
is also helping to identify Glades-
based vendors for olher project
opportunities.
"I appreciate the Health ('are
District of Palm Beach County's
commitment to advancing the
health of our region," said Dr.
Esther E. Berry, City of South Bay
Vice Mayor and member of the
Health Care District's Construc-
tion Oversight Committee. "It is
important that as a community
we stay updated and engaged as
the new regional hospital rises
before our eyes."
"I feel proud to be a witness
to this important milestone," said
Elizabeth "Liz" Cayson, Commu-
nity Relations Specialist for the
Health Care District. "It's reward-
ing to hear others in this com-
munity say they're excited that
this new hospital is becoming a
reality."
The Health Care District Board
has already committed $50 mil-
lion towards the new hospital
and medical campus. The Glades
Healthcare Foundation, a non-
profit organization, is leading a
capital fundraising campaign to
complete the project. At Wednes-
day's Health Care District Board
meeting, Pat Lord, the Executive
Director of the Glades Healthcare
Foundation, gave a progress report
on the campaign and encouraged
members of the community to
contribute. The Foundation is rais-
ing funds for development of the
new hospital as well as ongoing
health programs in the western
region of Palm Beach County. For
information about philanthropic
opportunities please call Pat Lord

Local hospital CEO receives award


Cudworth cited for
Highest Growth in
Patient Admissions

Craig R. Cudworth, Chief Exec-
utive Officer of Hendry Regional
Medical Center (HRMC), recently
attended the 2008 QHR CEO
conference in Brentwood, Tenn.,
where he received an award for
the highest growth in patient ad-
missions among QHR hospitals.
QHR is the management firm of
180 hospitals and HRMC is one of
those.
In 2007, Mr. Cudworth suc-
cessfully turned around opera-
tions at HRMC through strong,
admissions growth.
Patient admissions grew 41
percent (from 900 to 1,268), re-
sulting in the growth of revenue
from $1,876,773 to $3,643,130.
Two strategies have helped him
to achieve this growth.
First, Mr. Cudworth focused on
recruitment of both primary care
and specialty physicians.
Mr. Cudworth recruited one
Internist, who then helped recruit
three other Internists from his
residency program.
Then, Mr. Cudworth added
two General Surgeons and a Fam-
ily Physician to the medical staff
of HRMC.
His second strategy was de-
veloping a hospitalist program to
support the primary care physi-
cians.
This program resulted in the
retention of all newly recruited
physicians and support for the
General Surgeon until a second
surgeon was recruited.

Folklife: Ranching Traditions at the Florida Folk Festival


Stephen Foster State
Park White Springs
On a breezy Memorial Day
Weekend 2008, thousands of
people, many who have attended
the Florida Folk festival for more
than 30 years, were entertained
by a showcase of Florida cattle
ranchers featured in the "Folklife
Area" of Florida Cattle Ranching
Traditions.
Everything from whip crack-
ing, storytelling, cooking and oc-
cupational arts were displayed
and demonstrated by men and
women who have practiced their
trade as a way of life since Florida
was settled by early "cow hunters
and huntresses" more than 200
years ago.
The public had the opportu-
nity to pet and feed hay to Mark
Carpenter's (Levy County) crack-
er cattle and roan cracker horse
trained by Amanda, one of his
four children. Little tykes with
hands full of hay were greeted
by three young calves who gra-
ciously accepted their offerings to
the thrill of some who may have
only seen a cow in the movies or
a magazine.
The amazing talent of "metal-
lurgy" and sculpturing, more sim-
ply described as the artistic craft
of custom building spurs, bits,


branding irons, door knockers.
stirrups and silhouettes (above
entrance gateways) is the talent
of Billy Davis (Kenansville). Pa-
tiently explaining a craft that has
a language of its own, Billy Davis
and his wife Cynthia display a rep-
resentation of history with gear
worn or used by "cow hunters,"
cattlemen and women as trade-
marks of the industry.
Cooking up her specialties and
talking about the cattlewomen's
contributions to Florida's heritage
is Imogene Yarborough (Semi-
nole County). Honored with
recognition in the Florida Agricul-
ture Hall of Fame, Imogene Yar-
borough says that "whether it is
1 acre or 1,000, we call a 'ranch'
our home. It means that we have
all kinds of animals and agricul-
ture, so important in all of our
lives." However, Imogene says
that often when she talks to "poli-
ticians" the "first word out of their
mouth is, 'I am a rancher.' This
may not always hold true but they
want you to believe they are one
of you." Incorporating the story
of how the Florida cattle industry
rose to once of the State's most
important components of the
agriculture industry and ranking
among the top producers in the
United States, Imogene herself
part of the cultural heritage, con-


tinues to promote Florida beef.
"Cattle women started going into
the grocery stores demonstrating
how to properly cook beef, not
just throwing it on a grill. Then,
we educated the children as we
asked them questions about
where they get their meat or milk.
Many said they get it at Publix. So
we developed an educational pro-
gram." Since the passing of her
husband, Edmund, Imogene says
that many widowed cattle wom-
en continue to run the ranch, just
as she does in Geneva near the St.
John's River.
Also featured in interviews
and discussions were Willie
Johns (Brighton Seminole Histo-
rian), Paul Bowers (Big Cypress
Reservation), Mack Padget (Lake
Wales), Tom Everett (Sumter
County), Jose Carlos Martinez
(Dade County), and Eldon Lux
(Kenansville). Talking up a storm
with their verbal cowboy poetry
were Hank Matson (Lake-Placid),
Carl Sharp (LaBelle), Butch Har-
rison (Delray), and Doyle Rigdon
(Okeechobee). The crowd circled
around the story tellers stage just
as if was a campfire with embers
floating into an ink jet sky sur-
rounded in a silence descending
like dew upon avid listeners inter-
rupted only by laughter and ap-
plause.


Echoing from the Folklife stage,
meandering through the tall cab-
bage palms, pines and oaks was
a variety of music strummed,
sung, fiddled, beat, and bellowed
by Wayne Martin (Blountstown)
and champion fiddler; Emilio Or-
tiz of Colombian heritage, who
squeezed the accordion with tra-
ditional folk music of the region.
Buddy Mills (Okeechobee),
who learned to make buckskin
whips from his father, "Junior"
Wills was on hand to explain
how he builds the famous crack-
er whips used as signals for cow
crews on cattle drives and gather-
ing cattle. His son Chad and Bud-
dy's wife, Jessica who work on
their Okeechobee ranch, revealed
their traditional recipe for making
swamp cabbage, handed-down
by Buddy's daddy. Others who
displayed their wares was Ned
Waters (Bartow) who makes ny-
lon whips; Trevor Manley, Mack
Padgett's grandson dazzled the
crowd. with his whip popping tal-
ent as well as Poppy Moe (Ocala),
a lady team roper and horse train-
.er. Moe also crafts custom-made
chaps, chinks (short chaps), and
leather works for working cow-
boys and rodeo competitors.
The Seminole tribe, who are
traditional Florida cattle ranchers,
greeted visitors at the Ee-to-lit-kee,


Seminole Family Camp and giant
Chickee (house). Working at a
table, Jennie Shore demonstrated
how to make native coiled and
twilled basketry from sweetgrass
that today are made from pal-
mettos. The baskets are used by
Seminoles in which to make corn
meal. Other Seminole artisans,
Nancy Shore, Josephine Villa,
and Addie Osceola were on hand
to explain the intricate craftsman-
ship in designing and sewing col-
orful Seminole jackets, as well as
beads, and palmetto fiber made
dolls. In the art of wood-crafting
were alligators, birds and spoons
made by Victor Billie. Stirring up
samples of fry bred, a traditional
food of Seminoles along with sof-
kee (a corn, hominy meal drink)
and explaining how game meats
are cooked was Lorene Gopher
and Molly Jolly. The public also
learned about other traditional
foods in the Seminole diet.
Telling a history through sto-
ries, Seminole historian Willie
Johns added humor and dismay
discussing the role of early settlers
and U.S. government's effort to
what he says was to exterminate
the Seminoles as a result of the
Seminole Removal Act of 1891
preventing further unification of
the tribe that eventfully emerged
with their own government as the


Seminole Tribe of Florida in 1957.
Willie Johns says "I have been in
cattle all my life. My mom raised
cattle and that is all I wanted to
do. My bother Josiah Johns has
been a long time rodeo partici-
pant. The Seminoles organized
around the rodeo as they were
broke and it was a way to make
money besides agriculture which
is a mainstay of the tribe. Today,
our goal is to supply more than 1
million pounds of beef to the Hard
Rock cafes owned by the Tribe.

The Florida folklore of the
"cow hunter" and "cow hunt-
ress" is legendary and remains
a living history over thousands
of acres of land weaved through
the last remaining prairies scrub,
and swampland of old and new
urbanized Florida. The Florida
Folk Festival paid homage to this
traditional heritage and way of life
that gave birth to the Florida cattle
industry. (Nancy Dale is author

Most People are in the Dark about Light: Light Pollution Abatement


By Nancy Dale
Today, only one in ten Amneri-
cans live in an area where they
can see the 2,500 or so stars that
should be visible under normal
nighttime conditions due to "light
trespass" in both city and rural ar-
eas. Not only is light pollution the
"death of night" but there is also
human health consequences.
Living a sustainable lifestyle
means preserving the "right to
privacy" from intrusive light and
prevention of nighttime sleep
deprivation that negatively af-
fects human behavior resulting in
grogginess, tension, lack of con-
centration, impaired thinking, a
current focus of NASA scientists
on astronauts and sleep. The hor-


mone melatonin, affected by the
presence or absence of light,, in-
fluences astronauts who require
restful sleep in artificial darkness
to perform well in space.
"NASA is researching the af-
fect of light to determine optimal
wavelengths for use as a counter-
measure to sleep and circadian
cycle disruption of astronauts as
sleep deficit is considered a risk
factor during space expeditions.
Resulting physiological and be-
havioral changes can threaten the
success of a mission by diminish-
ing alertness, cognitive ability and
psychomotor performance" (Na-
tional Space Biomedical Research
Institute, www.nsbri.org).
Research indicates that "light


trespass" during nighttime sleep
negatively affects humans on
Earth who need a 24-hour day/
night cycle to maintain healthy
circadian or biological rhythms.
Humans do better when they're
kept in the dark during sleeping
hours.
Researchers at the University
of Pennsylvania, Children's Hos-
pital of Philadelphia, indicate that
children younger than two, who
sleep with a nightlight on, are
more likely to develop nearsight-
edness during childhood and teen-
age years." Robert Han, scientist
at the Center of Disease Control
and Prevention, Atlanta and Rich-
ard Stevens, Energy Department,
Northwest National Laboratory,


theorize that chronic disruptions
in melatonin production caused
by sleeping in a room bathed in
streetlight glow contributes to the
development of hormone-related
cancers including breast cancer.
What is needed now is further
carefully, controlled studies on
this data" (www.audobon.org).
Researchers are also scruti-
nizing the "myth" that excessive
night-light is a deterrent to crime;
lighting can enhance nighttime
surveillance but it is unlikely to
scare a criminal away and does,
not affect daylight break-ins when
people are away or at work. For
home surveillance, Ace Hard-
ware sells "glare busters" that il-
luminate correctly downward or


motion detector lights that are
off 99 % of the time. The most
intrusive and excessive energy
lights are mercury-vapor lamps
that shine in all directions. In the
City of Sanibel, Florida, there are
Code Ordinances and penalties
for outside lights that "disturb or
annoy persons inhabiting a neigh-
boring residence" (www.ilsr.org).
Unshielded ."Miami riot" lights,"
and city light glare also disturbs
wildlife reproduction, navigation
habits of migratory animals, and
threatens ecosystem balance.
To target light abatement,
county zoning laws can restrict
development in designated dark
areas; require hooded lights on
outdoor stadiums/state facilities;


enforce power companies to pro-
vide pole lamp light shields and
energy efficient "cut-off lights"
that allows no emission through
the. fixture above a horizontal
plane minimizing source glare,
directing light uniformly onto the
ground. ."The City of Los Angeles
replaced high-energy incandes-
cent bulbs with high pressure so-
dium (HPS) bulbs and uses 'cut-
off' lights (www.lacity.org).
According to FPL's Corporate
Communications officer, Jim
Davison, FPL has cutoff lights
available but we install what the
municipality wants. FIPL handles
concerns individually based on
customer needs and different
field conditions."

Area college-bound athletes ready to move forward


A look at where
they'll be playing
college sports

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION A life-
changing expereince awaits col-
lege-bound student-athletes this
upcoming fall.
Many of the area's high school
athletes from the graduating class
of 2008 are preparing to go away
to their respective colleges and
continue to participate in sports,
-- namely college football, a child-
hood dream for many of the boys
who played on the gridiron.
Most. carry dreams of one
day making it all the way to the
National Football League (NFL),
while others will set their sights


on other sports like basketball.
wrestling, softball and baseball.
Regardless of what all of the
area's athletes do when they are
away, their communities take
pride in seeing each one of them
live out their dreams.
In four years, it very well may
be possible that the area could be
represented in the NFL and the
Woman's National Basketball As-
sociation (WNBA), to name just
two professional organizations.
The year 2012 could be a banner
year for the entire area as many
of the area's recent high school
graduates will have the opportu-
nity to add to the area's illustrious
history when it comes to produc-
ing professional athletes.
Here's a list of where the ar-
ea's college-bound athletes will
be playing college sports:

Glades Day School to host basketball camp in June


Week-long operation
is from June 23-27

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE There seems
to be quite a few summer activi-
ties planned for the area's youth
this summer.
Glades Day School is hosting
its inaugural basketball camp next
week, yet another fun activity for
the children to participate in.
Joe Guethle, the basketball
camp coordinator, believes that
right now, basketball is near
the bottom of priorities when it
comes to athletics in the .Glades
area.
Mr. Guethle would like for this
opportunity to be used as a way


to get the youth interested in the
sport.
"If you stop and look, there
isn't much for organized basket-
ball in the Glades," Mr. Guethle
said.
"Football and baseball are our
priorities in the Glades right now,
but basketball has fallen by the
wayside. We're trying to revive it
any way we can."
According to Mr. Guethle,
years ago, many area youth used
to participate in a Saturday morn-
ing basketball program entitled
'Top Priority.'
It was held at the now-defunct
Christian Day School, which
closed its doors in 1994.
What hurts the sport, accord-
ing to him, is that the Florida High
School Athletic Association (FH-
SAA) schedules the beginning of


the basketball season at the same
time that football takes place.
It causes the two sports to
overlap each other, since football
in the Glades typically can run
up to early December, about the
same time the regular basketball
season takes place.
In the end, since many football
players in the Glades can also play
basketball, the desire simply isn't
there like it was during football
season because all of their energy
has been put into the fall sport.
Nonetheless, as Mr. Guethle
looks forward to next week's
camp, he's hoping that at least 30
children show up for the activities
to improve their basketball skills.
The week-long camp, which
begins on June 23 and ends on
June 27, will feature a series of
fundamental drills, which include


ball handling, shooting, rebound-
ing, passing and defense.
* On the first day, two hours will
be dedicated to fundamentals and
by the end of the week, the drills
will be reduced to 30 minutes.
The camp will also feature a
series of contests for free throw
shooting, ball handling and three-
point shooting.
It will conclude each day by
a set of four-on-four pickup bas-
ketball games, with a one hour
block available on the first day
and about two hours dedicated


to games toward the end of the
camp.
. There will be two sessions
available for the area's youth.
The morning session is for
7-to-10 year old children, which
will last from 9 a.m. until noon,
while the afternoon session is
available for ages 11-to-15 from I
to 4 p.m.
"I hope the kids will come in,
learn some fundamentals and
enjoy it enough that they want to
play basketball in high school,"
Mr. Guethle said.


"I'm'looking for this camp to'
be a success and to have it again
next year."
For more information regard-
ing the basketball camp, those
interested can call Joe Guethle
at 996-6769 ext. 20 (Glades Day'
School) or 985-2009 (cell).
You could also come to Glades"
Day School at 400 Gator Blvd. in
Belle Glade and pick up an appli-.'
cation for the basketball camp. '

Did your legislators make the grade this year?


TALLAHASSEE-On Friday,
June 13, the Florida Chamber of
Commerce released, "How They
Voted," the widely distributed
publication providing Florida's
business community with a de-
tailed overview of legislation im-
pacting their business.
How They Voted also includes
the highly anticipated 2008 Leg-
islative Transparency and Report
Card, highlighting each legisla-
tor's support for the priorities of
the business community.
The Legislative Report Card
grades are earned based on. leg-
islators' voting records on issues
outlined in the Chamber's 2008
Florida's Business Agenda (FBA),
which included priorities such as
a landmark economic stimulus


package, energy solutions for
the state of Florida and Guns at
Work.
"Our Legislative Report Card is
one of the important tools Cham-
ber members use to make edu-
cated decisions when it comes to
elections," said Marian Johnson,
vice president of political strategy
for the Florida Chamber of Com-
merce.
"Increasingly, employers
across the state look to How They
Voted as a guide on which legis-
lators support jobs, business and
community development."
This year, 52 percent of the
Florida Legislature received an A
(score of 90-100) on the Legisla-
tive Report Card, in comparison
to 62 percent last year.


Both the House and Senate
saw a decline this year in legisla-
tors scoring an A grade.
Ten percent of the Florida Sen-
ate received an A grade, down
from 42 percent in 2007, and 65
percent of the House of Represen-
tatives scored an A, down from 71
percent the previous year.
In addition to releasing Leg-
islative Report Card grades, the
Florida Chamber recognized Rep-
resentative Dennis Ross as the
2008 Most Valuable Legislator.
Ross received this award for
his leadership on lowering insur-
ance costs and working to reduce
taxpayer's exposure to hurricane
assessments, along with his con-
tinued fight to protect Floridians'
private property rights.


Additionally, 14 legislators
who championed key FBA legis-
lation are being honored as Dis-
tinguished Advocates for 2008.
The recognized legislators in-
clude Representative Attkisson,
Representative Cannon, Repre-
sentative Dorworth, Representa-
tive Grant, Representative McKeel,
Representative Precourt, Repre-
sentative Richter, Senator Baker,
Senator Bennett, Senator Fasano,
Senator Gaetz, Senator Oelrich,
Senator Posey and Senator Ring.
Prior to session, legislators
received Where We Stand, a re-
port detailing Florida's Business
Agenda.
This publication includes po-
sition papers on each FBA issue
and information about the Leg-


islative Report Card and grading
criteria.
"The Legislative Report Card
helps employers clearly identify
legislators who support their pri-
orities and those that do not,"
said David Daniel, vice president
of governmental affairs for the
Florida Chamber of Commerce.
The grade earned by a legisla-
tor is calculated by dividing the
total number of times a legislator
voted "for" the Chamber's posi-
tion by the total number of times
a legislator cast a vote on FBA
bills.
Votes after roll call and missed
votes are not factored into a legis-
lator's grade.
The Florida Chamber plans to
recognize legislators who earned


a spot on the "Honor Roll" for
their A grade in front of their local
chamber members and constitu-
ents at 15 Regional Legislative
Briefings around the state later in
the month.

Florida Chamber's Legislative
Report Card, or to view the full

Wine making in Florida


- rich in history and taste


How wine developed
into an important
part of the state's
history
A century before the Pilgrims
landed at Plymouth Rock; three
hundred years before California
became a state; wine was being
made in Florida.
"Florida" was the name given
by Spanish explorers in recogni-
tion of the state's beautiful fruits
and flowers.
And among that rich vegeta-
tion, lush native grapevines were
discovered on Florida's east coast.
Following the lead of the French,


Spanish settlers harvested the wild
grapes; and, applying the same
traditions of their homeland, con-
verted Florida's wild muscadine
into the first American wine.
Through the centuries, Flor-
ida's rich soils and rolling hills
have supported both vineyards
and wine making.
The success of muscadine
wine is the byproduct of Old
World traditions and new world
production methods.
The muscadine; it evokes
memories of sleepy summer af-
ternoons in the deep south.
Smooth, aromatic and nostal-
gic muscadine wines are a south-
ern specialty produced nowhere
else on earth.


Scientists concerned with de-
veloping hybrid bunch grapes and
improving the native muscadines,
have created a wider variety of
wine grapes.
For 75 years, scholars at the
University of Florida have been
committed to improving Sun-
shine State grapes.
This research has developed
varieties that flourish in Florida's
subtropical climate, well-suited
to our soils and perfect for wine
making.
The development of these
new hybrid grapes with high fruit,
taste and aroma qualities,secures
.the promise of a bright future for
Florida's vineyards.
Florida wineries and vineyards


are scattered. throughout the
state, with harvest times ranging
from May to September.
This conveniently coincides
with the most popular time of
year for Sunshine State tourists
and visitors
Visiting a winery or vineyard in
Florida is a fascinating experience
for the whole family.
It's a part of Florida beyond the
beaches and amusement parks.
Florida's vineyards, wineries


and flavorful wines are interest-
ing parts of Florida history that
few people know about, but one
which more and more people are
discovering.
You can stroll through a vine-
yard, view a harvest, watch the
wine making process, the cork-
ing, bottling and labeling of de-
licious wines, and sample the
wonderful and distinctive variet-
ies of delicious Florida wines.
Some vineyards even letvisitors


pick grapes right off the vines.
It's a wonderful way to take
home a sample of Florida's finest,
if you can resist eating the fruits
of your labor before you get them
home!
If the grapes do make it, you
can try your own hand at home
wine making or create a delicious
jelly, jam or gourmet meals with
the fruit.

ing industry. The collected eggs
are purchased by farmers and this
helps fund FWC's .I2ri. .r man-
agement.
Allen Register is the coordina-
tor for this FWC alligator farming
project and he is busily preparing
the facility for another Egg Hatch-
ing Festival coming up soon in
August. This is definitely a high-
light event for Gatorama, and kids
of all ages will be thrilled to hold
an egg while the baby gator strug-
gles to emerge.
Even though this is the sum-
mer season it does not seem to
affect Gatorama's draw for busi-
ness, according to Patty Register.
In winter the facility sees 150-200
guests each day of the week;
and in the summer the numbers


are fewer, but not bv much. Ms.
Register figures prominently in
Florida Freshwater Tourism. Visit
clorida's Rural Tourism Commit-
tee and the Glades County Eco-
nomic Development Council.
Many summer visitors come
from Lee, Charlotte and High-
lands Counties. These regional
residents are usually attracted
to south Florida wildlife and Old
Florida history. Both Patty and Al-
len are descended from old Crack-
er families, and Patty Register
sees an opportunity to develop a
Florida heritage experience with-
in Glades County. Currently, she is
seeking an independent business
operator of airboat and swamp
buggy rides. The Gatorama site
would be a place of contact for


tourists and the operator..
"I would like to mentor and en-
courage someone in the airboat
and swamp buggy business," said
Patty Register.
Interested airboat businesses
should contact Ms. Register at
Sjrr, ,. Gatorama.com
