17, Gavin W. O'Brien represent-

States Court of Appeals for the

Georgia. He asked that a lawsuit,

may be some extra things resi-
dents can do to prepare for
evacuation from storms, fires
and floods. The start of hurri-
cane season and a prolonged
wildfire season have put many
on alert.
Government agencies and
other organizations in Florida
put forth an extra effort at this


American Civil Liberties Union
(ACLU), which assisted a de-
feated African-American candi-
date and voters who challenged
the local government method of
electing commissioners for five
individual districts, and the five-
member school board based on
a county-wide vote.
The plaintiffs asserted that
this method dilutes the voting
strength of African-Americans
who made up a little over 10
percent of the entire county's
population according to statistics
from 2000. At that time, Hispan-
ics comprised 15 percent, Cauca-
sians were about 70 percent and

The All Hazards Guide 2008-

Emergency Management Divi-
sion. Its contents will inform
you of the most vital informa-
tion you will need for disaster
survival, evacuation and impor-
tant phone numbers. It is avail-
able at their office in the court-

According to an Associated
Press article, Gavin W O'Brien
commented that if a district with
an African-American majority got
representatives on the county
commission and on the school
board it may be a situation where-
by ten percent of the population
controlled 20 percent of the vot-
ing power. Glades County has a
low population that is generally
dispersed throughout its -large
rural area; however, the African-
American population is generally
clustered near the county seat of

of Washington Park.
The lawsuit asked that five
single-member districts be cre-
ated. This included one around
the county seat that had a ma-
jority of slightly over 50 percent
African-Americans of voting age.
Voters in single-member districts
choose only one person to rep-
resent them in a governing body
such as a board or commission.
However, Glades County uses
a county-wide vote in choosing
district representatives.
A federal court in Florida
originally ejected the lawsuit,
but that decision was reversed in
July 2007. On June 17, 2008, all


12 members of the Eleventh Cir-
cuit Court heard arguments from
both parties in the voting rights
case. Neil Bradley, ACLU attorney
for the plaintiffs requested that
the case be returned to Florida
district court. According to the
Associated Press report, Mr. Brad-q
ley commented that it is possible
a district can be created that will
overcome concerns about break
ing the credo of one person-ong
vote.

An 18-year-old Okeecho-
bee man was hospitalized early
Sunday morning after he was
attacked by an l 1-foot alligator
while he was swimming at Nub-
bin Slough.
Kasey Edwards was ,iifliifi-,J to
Holmes Regional Medical Center
in Melbourne by Aeromed, stated
a report by Deputy Corporal Chris
Hans of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO).
The teenager was attacked
around 2:21 a.m. while he was
trying to swim across Nubbin
Slough.
Cpl. Hans' report said he found
Kasey on the east end of the ca-
nal, just south of the locks.
The young man was "hanging
out" in the area with friends, said
the report.
"It was kind of late," said Mark
Edwards, Kasey's father.
"They had some girls there.


An 11-foot alligator was found
Sunday, June 22, and Kasey's
left arm was found in the gator's
stomach.
According to Gary Morris, a
spokesman for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), an Okeechobee
trapper was called to the scene.
He said the trapper, Rickey Light-
sey, had to take a total of five al-
ligators until they found the right
one.
Mr. Morris said necropsies.
were performed at the scene.
"Once we have a gator that ex-
hibits aggressive behavior toward
people, then we have to get that
one," he explained in a phone in-
terview from his Lakeland office.
"We really don't have a choice.
We have to, by agreement with
the coroners' offices across the
state, that we have to harvest the
gator.
"There were a number of fairly
aggressive gators in the area," he
added. "When you get an alliga-
tor that's 11 to 12 feet, it's not an


left arm.
The attack pulled the young
man under the water.
Upon surfacing, the report
went on to say that Kasey was
able to grab the buoys strung on
steel cable in front of the locks
which kept the large gator from
pulling him under again.
He was able to make it to the
other side of the canal where he
was pulled to safety.
"They didn't see the gator at
first," said Mr. Edwards Monday
morning.
"After Kasey got in the water
the boys said the gator came out
of nowhere. They started yelling
'big gator! big gator!' but then it
had him by the left arm. It bit his
left arm off up past the elbow."
Mark Edwards said his son
managed to pull himself out of
the water by using his right arm.
He said doctors will not close
the wound to Kasey's arm until
Tuesday.
"They explained that because
of bacteria in the alligator's


"He's still alive and we're
thankful for that," he said.
Mr. Edwards said because of
the economy, his son has had dif-
ficulty in finding work but had just
started a job with a lawn mainte-
nance company last week.
Mr. Morris said even though
Kasey's arm was recovered it
could not be re-attached.
According to FWC statistics,
there were a total of 18 docu-
mented alligator attacks in Florida
in 2007.
The most attacks ever record-
ed came in 2001 when there were
25 documented attacks.
Those statistics indicate that
there was one fatality in 2007.
That came when Justo Antonio
Padron, 36, was trying to swim

Sex and the City, the Biblical version differs from today's


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's racy. It's titillating. It's,
frankly, more than we wanted
to know. It's Sex and the City -
the wildly popular HBO creation
chronicling the sexual misadven-
tures of fictional newspaper col-
umnist Carrie Bradshaw played
by Sarah Jessica Parker and
her pals. Carrie hangs out with
a group of attractive but lonely,
thirty-something year old women
looking for satisfaction, women
who explore their sexuality in the
fast lane of New York City.
Even those of us who have
not seen the show can't help
but know of some of what it is
about we are inundated with
the publicity around the opening
of the Sex and the City movie, and
episodes of the show can now


be seen on regular TV. What was
once limited seeing is now com-
mon view. Even the youngest can
turn on the television and get an
eye full.
And yet, for all the casual en-
counters and wild forays into "lib-
eration," a glimpse of traditional
values peeks through occasional-
ly. At least one episode deals with
a subject familiar to all whether
you live in New York City or Peo-
ria, in the 21st century or in the
10th century B.C. The Ten Com-
mandments call it Number Seven.
Sex and the City covered it in Epi-
sode Six.
The question is raised, "Is sex-
ual cheating like the proverbial
tree in the forest? Does it exist if
there's no one to catch you?" Af-
ter all, presidents do it. Business
moguls do it. Christians do it.
Second Samuel includes its


own Episode Six of Sex and the
City. The city is Jerusalem. The
cheater is David. But there the
similarities end. Carrie's sexual
adventures are a lifestyle choice;
David's sexual misadventure is a
once-in-a-lifetime disaster. Car-
rie's guilt-free; David's guilt-laden.
Carrie brags; David begs. Sex and
the City attempts to link sexual
promiscuity with social responsi-
bility. Second Samuel links sexual
infidelity with truth and conse-
quences.
Let's review the story. It was
springtime in Jerusalem, "the
time when kings go out to battle."
But not all kings. The king of Is-
rael sent the troops out to battle
while he lounged about high atop
the palace, which afforded him a
spectacular view of the city below.
And the view was, shall we say,
breathtaking especially when


the panoramic vista included the
sight of a gorgeous and quite na-
ked woman taking a bath.
Bathsheba was a fetching
woman and Sex and the City was
the reason she was fetched. And
we quickly learn that it was not
safe Sex and the City. Bathsheba,
married to a Hittite mercenary
named Uriah, conceived a child
that day. Since Uriah was off at
war and she ventured directly
from her bath to David's bed-
room, Uriah could not possibly
be the father of her baby. And you
thought only HBO and television
required parental discretion!
David, hoping to cover the
indiscretion, commanded Uriah
to come home, take a load off,
spend a little time with Bathsheba
... wink, wink. But Uriah was a
man of honor, and as long as his
fellow soldiers were out in the


field, he would abstain from the
pleasures of civilian life, including
relations with his wife.
So David opted for Plan B. He
sent Uriah to the front lines, com-
manded the troops to back off
and set up Uriah for inevitable
slaughter. No more Uriah. No
more adultery. No more prob-
lems, right? Not hardly.
Look at David. Chosen by God,
blessed with looks and talent and
charm. He knew himself to be a
man of faith. And yet this favored
one was not immune to the temp-
tations of real life. Can we blame
it on his surroundings?
In ancient times as well as cur-
rent times, the city has had the
reputation for luring otherwise
wholesome souls into a life of raw
corruption and manifold sin. But
it's not merely an urban thing. It's
a human thing. And our human


sin yields painful consequences
no matter where it occurs. The
Bible knows it and speaks of it.
We know it, too, if we rerun in
our minds the darker episodes of.
our lives. One sin leads to another'
sin and another and another.
Adultery is sin. A sin against'
God, a sin against the person with
whom we live in a covenant rela-
tionship, a sin against the person'
with whom we are cheating and:
a sin against ourselves.
One would think that this
message is not one we would'.
need to explain to an audience of
God-fearing, faith-filled followers:
of Christ. But in this age of sex-'
in-the-city culture which tends,
to wink at sexual infidelity, even.
Christians can begin to believe'
that covenantal unfaithfulness or
promiscuity is no big deal.
It is a big deal.


Baptism: 'Let the children come to me: Do not hinder them'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Someone recently cited Eze-
kiel 18:20 as supporting the idea
that children don't need to be
baptized because the haven't
inherited sin from their parents.
The verse, read in context, talks
about being responsible for our
own deeds; both good and bad.
An example cited by the author
of Ezekiel speaks about sons not
suffering for the "iniquity" (sic-
RSV) of the fathers and vice versa.
The passage talks about individu-
al responsibility for our acts, not
whether children are innocent.
Check Psalms 51:5, "I was
born in iniquity and in sin did my
mother conceive me" which says
otherwise. It tells more clearly
how we got here, and what is not
so pristine and pure about our
coming into this world. Likewise,
Psalm 14:2-3, "The Lord looks
down from Heaven upon the chil-
dren of men to see if there are any
that act wisely-they have all gone
astray, they are all alike corrupt,
there is not one that does good,


no not one." Chldren are not left
out!
John (14:6) tells us that "Man
born of a woman is of a few days
and full of trouble...who can bring
a clean thing out of an unclean?
There is not one." Lest we think
that infants come into the world
"pure and sinless" we need to
look at children. They can be self-
ish, jealous, violent and do all sorts
of things that they are not taught
by parents, or anybody else. "Sin"
is also the common nature that
humanity inherits, that nature of
us all just by being human...and
being less than God calls us to be
from the beginning.
Baptism is the point from
which the Christian grows, no
matter at what age they share in
this special service that responds
to the Lord's call to, "Go therefore
and make disciples of all nations,
baptising them in the name of
the Father and of the Son and the
Holy Ghost (Matthew 28:19)."
There is no distinction that bap-
tism is just for some, or that they
have to know a certain amount,
or make some kind of profession,
or that others have some right to
say just who and who is not eli-


gible for baptism.
There are many who are bap-
tized in adolescence, a devel-
opmental period when children
frequently change their minds,
frequently are still in the throes of
growing, choose to follow what
seems to be the going thing one
day and changing their minds en-
tirely the next day.
They are no less mature or im-
matuare than younger children,
older children, some adults, the
rest of humanity. Professions
made one day are changed the
next.
For some, it would seem that
they must somehow understand
faith before they can be a part
of God's family. That eliminates
many persons whom God loves.
I had a relative who was retarded,
and have baptized other retarded
persons; each with their own lim-
its and with the understanding
that they knew God in their own
way and at their own level. They
loved the Lord where they were
at; just as those who come newly
from Him and even if we don't
see it or understand it, or even if
they have defects of character.
The Christian response is to set


persons on the right track, take
them where they are; Jesus is the
prime example of this for us.
Actually, the Bible doesn't
directly address the question
of infant baptism. There are no
verses saying "Do it!" or "Don't
do it!" What is in place, though,
are the indications that it would
have happened. Paul and Silas
were imprisoned (Acts 16L23ff)
and there was an earthquake that
damaged the prison. The jailor
was worried that his prisoners
might have escaped but Paul and
Silas remain, much to his relief.
He asks "Men, what must I do to
be saved?" and is told simply "Be-
lieve in the Lord Jesus" (v.20). No
demands, just believe. Then "...
he was baptized at once, with all
of his family." That would include
the children of the family too, if it
was all of his family.
This happens again, in an
earlier part of Acts. A woman
named Lydia, "a seller of purple
goods (Acts 16:14) who was a
worshipper of God." Acts tells us
"and she was baptized, with her
household..." again speaking of
an entire family and that would
also include children.


People have sought answers
to questions when they don't find
an answer in the Bible by looking
to the sources that are from Bib-
lical times. People who lived in
the times of the aposltes and who
would have known the mind and
practices of the early believers
often provide answers where the
Bible may be silent. Those who
were closer to Biblical times have
better insights into what the early
Church taught and practiced.
An answer comes from the
Roman catacombs of the Biblical
era. Tombs have been found that
read "Verina received batpism at
the age of ten months, Florina
at the age of twelve months."
Another tomb inscription reads
"Here rests Achilla, a newly bap-
tized infant; she was one year and
five months old."
It was obvious that the chil-
dren were loved by their parents.
They were a part of a human
household from the moment they
arrived and fully acknowledged as
such, just as our own children are
a part of our households today.
They grow and take their right-
ful place in the hamily from birth,
and parents protect and help


them grow; but they are never-
theless full members of the family
from their coming to us.
Baptism is membership into
God's family, full membership,,
wherever we are, what ever,
place we are beginning, from
whatever state we have come.
We don't wait until the child
understands the need for vac-'
cinations before he is given the
means for healing those diseases
that can be prevented, nor do
we wait until he is old enough to,
decide on a name for himself; we'
start our children on the best road
we can. They are full members
of our earthly families; and they'
should likewise be -full members
of the Lord's family too. Baptism
is that acknowledgement of that
membership and a responsibil-
ity. Happy, faithful families have
done so from the beginnings of
the Christian era. I'm blessed to
be numbered among them and
have a part in welcoming them
into God's family.


Be careful around alligators


+ From the Florida
Fish and Wildlife
Conservation
Commission
Alligators have inhabited Flori-
da's marshes, swamps, rivers and
lakes for many centuries, and are
found in all 67 counties. In recent
years, Florida has experienced
tremendous human population
growth.
Many residents seek waterfront
homes, and increasingly partici-
pate in water-related activities.
This can result in more fre-
quent alligator-human interac-
tions, and a greater potential for
conflict.
Although many Floridians
have learned to coexist with al-
ligators, the potential for conflict
always exists.
Because of their predatory
nature and large size (up to 14
feet in length and weighing as
much as 1,000 pounds), alliga-
tors sometimes attack pets and
livestock. Unfortunately, humans
are occasionally attacked, and in
rare instances, killed by large al-
ligators. Since 1948, more than
275 unprovoked attacks on hu-
mans have been documented in
Florida, with at least 17 resulting
in deaths.
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) annually receives more
than 18,000 alligator-related com-
plaints.
Most of these complaints deal
with alligators occurring in places
such as backyard ponds, canals,


ditches and streams, but other
conflicts occur in garages, pools
and in golf course ponds.
In many cases, if left alone,
alligators will eventually retreat
to more-preferred, isolated areas
away from people.
Safety Tips

If you encounter an alliga-
tor over four feet in length and
that poses a threat to humans or
property, call 1-866-FWC-GATOR
(392-4286).
The FWC will evaluate your
complaint, and if necessary send
a registered trapper to remove the
alligator.

Be aware of the possibility of
alligator attacks when in or near
fresh or brackish waterbodies.
Attacks may occur when
people do not pay close enough
attention to their surroundings
when working or recreating near
water.

Closely supervise children
when they are playing in or
around water.
Never allow small children to
play unsupervised near water.

Do not swim outside of post-
ed swimming areas or in waters
that might be inhabited by large
alligators.

Alligators are most active be-
tween dusk and dawn.
Therefore, swim only during
daylight hours.


Leave alligators alone. State
law prohibits killing, harassing or
possession of alligators.

Never feed or entice alliga-
tors -- it's dangerous and illegal.
When fed, alligators overcome
their natural wariness and learn
to associate people with food.

Inform others that feeding
alligators is illegal and creates
problems for others who want
to use the water for recreational
purposes.

Dispose of fish scraps in gar-
bage cans at boat ramps and fish
camps -- do not throw them in the
water.
Although you are not inten-
tionally feeding alligators when
you do this, the end result can be
the same.

Don't allow pets to swim,
exercise or drink in or near wa-
ters that may contain alligators
or in designated swimming areas
with humans.
Dogs are more susceptible to
being attacked than humans, be-
cause dogs resemble the natural
prey of alligators.

Never remove an alligator
from its natural habitat or accept
one as a pet.
It is illegal and dangerous to
do so. Handling even small alliga-
tors can result in injury.


alligators only from a distance.
Remember, they're an important
part of Florida's natural history as
well as an integral component of
freshwater ecosystems.

Seek immediate medical at-
tention if bitten by an alligator. Al-
ligator bites often result in serious
infection.

In Florida, increasing numbers
of people living and recreating
near water have led to a steady
rise in the number of alligator-
related complaints. Although the
majority of these complaints re-
late to alligators occurring in lo-
cations where they simply aren't
wanted, a small number tragi-
cally involve attacks on humans.
The FWC removes more than
7,000 nuisance alligators per year.
Through removal of these alliga-
tors and increased public aware-
ness, the rate of alligator attacks
has remained constant despite
the increased potential for alliga-
tor-human interaction.
Alligators are an important
part of Florida's heritage and play
an important role in the ecology
of our state's wetlands. A better
understanding of these facts and
a broader knowledge of alligator
. behavior will help ensure that hu-
mans and alligators can continue

so once every 100 years.
The plant towers over the rooftop of the home where it

Insight into Glades County History


Bv Rarhara Oehlhbck


Submitted photo
This book was dedicated
to Glades County Board of
Commissioners in 1985.

Over two decades ago, factu-
ally in 1985, over 23 years ago, a
small book titled GLADES COUN-
TY, FLORIDA History became
a reality. Over a period of time,
there had been considerable dis-
cussion in and out the Glades
County Library and Friends of the
Library, along with other notables
in the area, lending support for
the project. In the Acknowledge-
ments is stated: Hundreds of peo-
ple contributed to the compiling
of our brief history of the county.
To attempt listing names of the
many contributors would be to
risk an oversight and imply a lack
of gratitude. Therefore, we who
compiled this history express our
appreciation to everyone who as-
sisted. We know that generations
to come will add their gratitude as
well.
Also quoting from the book:
No history of a place and its peo-
ple can be definitive. In recount-
ing events stretching back almost
a century, much must be omitted
for lack of space. Some important
or unusual happenings may have
gone unrecorded because they
were not brought to light. In re-
telling this history, the compilers
have, insofar as possible, relied on
written records as well as person-
al recollections. Neither source is
infallible, however, and errors are


-I


inevitable although quite uninten-
tional. In years to come another
history will be written and at that
time the errors and omissions
in this book should be noted so
that the record can be set straight
We urge readers to amend their
copies of this book and to make
a record of those accounts they
believe should be included in
the second edition, yet to come.
Therefore, pages at the back of
this book have been set aside for
personal recollections and notes.
The book was compiled under
the direction of the 1985 County
Board of Commissioners and
dedicated to them, namely: Vance
Whidden, Chairman, Margaret
Van De Velde, Vice-Chairman, W.
A. Branthoover, Sammy Griffin,
and Vance Storter.
Under the dedication is this:
They (the commissioners) had
the foresight to capture the minds
and hearts of those pioneering
people of Glades County, Florida,
while many of them were still
here to remember.
And the question has been
asked many times: but who is the
author of this book?
On page VI is this: Special
thanks go to the dedicated histo-
rians of Glades County, Florida,
who researched, collected and
prepared the text of this book.
Those dedicated historians in-
clude Billy 0. Bass, Chairman,
Valerie Coffey, Alisa Dewing, Lil-
lian McNeeley, Joy Roberts, Nor-
maTatum, Pat Taylor and Mertie
Van De Velde. No one author is
listed as having written the book.
In Chapter One there is this:
Settling the Glades begins...De-
spite the lush beauty of the land
lying west and south of Lake
Okeechobee with its mixtures of
prairies and verdant hammocks,
both of which held promising
livelihood to those willing to
bend to the work, it was not until
the last two decades of the nine-
teenth century that white settlers
ventured into that area which
would become Glades County.


Between the death of the Ca-
loosa culture and 1842, Ponce de
Leon had claimed the region for
the Spanish. He named it Florida,
meaning "full of flowers" in Span-
ish. England gained control of
Florida in 1763, but lost it back to
Spain in 1783. After the Revolu-
tionary War, Florida was the only
part of southeastern North Amer-
ica which did not belong to the
United States. Then, in 1821 the
United States formally obtained
Florida. After wars with United
States troops and settlers, the
Seminole Indians fled in defeat
from Alabama and Georgia, re-
treating into the Glades where the
white man didn't care to venture.
It was a sticky, formidable jungle
without recommendation. So it
was here in this enormously
inhospitable inland swamp that
those Seminole Indians found
a home which harbored peace,
tranquility and contentment.
On hummocks or hammocks,
these Seminoles settled in. They
built chickees for shelter, raised
pigs, kept bees and planted
gardens raising all sorts of veg-
etables, pumpkins, sweet pota-
toes, squash, beans, sugar cane,
melons citrus, guava and others.
They flourished and survived,
safe from the white man's war-
ring ways, generously taking in
those Negro slaves who dared to
escape stern masters and venture
south in search of freedom
These people were in essence,
lost to the world, lost in a vast wa-
tery swamp. Their only naviga-
tional reference, a majestic lone
cypress tree which stood tall and
undaunted by time at the meeting
of lake Okeechobee, the second
largest freshwater lake in the Unit-
ed States, and the west bank of
the River of the Caloosas, the Ca-
loosahatchee, a realistic reminder
of that vanished race of men, gi-
ant men, who ventured here first
and were a breed apart.
According to this history book,
a century after the United States
formally obtained Florida in 1821,

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 "0O'Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Paho-
kee on November 22, and end at
Pahokee 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.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Thursday, June 26, 2008


Glades County became a real-
ity in 1921. And now the reprint,
the second addition, of Glades
County, Florida History, is about
to become a reality.
According to Mary (Mrs. John}
Booher Director of the Glades
County Library, the book is at the
printers now and will be in the
hands of the Friends of the Library
sometime in July at which time it
will be proofed and sent back to
the printers for final printing.
This is a project of the Friends
Of The Library. It will be avail-
able from them only, and will not
require any funds from Glades
County.
This is a reprint only, not ai}
update. Mary Booher says there
will be only one addition which is
the listing of the current Board of
County Commissioners, the rea-
son being that the copyright was
originally obtained in the name of
the Board in 1985, thus permis-
sion was sought
and granted from the current
Board for reprinting. Upon the oc_-
casion of hearing about the book
being reprinted,, one member of
that original board, Mr. Sammy
Griffin, said "I think it's good that
the history is being reprinted, but
I think it would have been much
better to have had it updated
at the same time."
Glades County, Florida, His-
tory is hardback with dust cover,
printed throughout in black and
white with some 200 pages. The
last 50-some pages are voter lists'
music, photos, and blank pages
for reader notes.
The price is estimated to be
approximately $25 and will be
available only from Friends of
the Library. Barbara Oelbeck is
an author of non-fiction books,
articles and essays who lives
and writes in Glades County. She
can be reached at 863-675-2771'
or doco@strato.net, or visit her

MOORE HAVEN-BJ.'s foot-
ball camp is coming to town this
weekend and it couldn't come at a
much better time.
In a town where outside athletic
activities are relatively scarce year-
round, it serves as a refreshing op-
portunity for the area's youth.
Bobby Hallback, a 1998 gradu-
ate from Moore Haven Junior-Se-
nior High School, hopes that the
camp will get the kids interested in
playing football. Not only that, the
camp coordinator would like for
the participants to learn a series
of agility drills basic fundamentals
from the quarterback, running
back and wide receiver positions.
"I'm kid oriented, so I'll do
whatever I can to reach out to the

kids around here," Mr. Hallback
said. "I would like for all of our
kids to have more things to do out
here in Moore Haven."
Participants should feel at ease
this weekend as the function will
be assisted by the likes of Moore
Haven's own Antwonne McCloud,
as well as Clewiston's Willie Brin-

camp.
Mr. Hallback said that there is a
limit of 25 kids who could sign up
for each section, making it a total
of 75 overall. But realistically, since
this operation is just starting out,
Mr. Hallback is expecting that any-
where from 20 to 30 children will
attend this weekend's camp.
"Hopefully, this camp could
eventually grow and benefit the
kids to the point that it could hap-
pen annually," Mr. Hallback said.
"I'm looking forward to having a
successful camp at Moore Haven
High School on Saturday."

pays to be courteous.
For example, if you write the
message in your email in ALL
CAPITAL LETTERS, your recipi- CO
ent will think you are shouting at
them. But don't default to all low-

lazy.
It is important to be concise. S
State your main point in the first

A reverse mortgage Is it right for you?


By Jack Motter, Senior
Vice President in
Mortgage Lending.
Riverside National Bank
It's the latest buzz phrase for
homeowners in their golden
years, but is a reverse mortgage
right for you? To find out, start
by making sure you understand
what a reverse mortgage is. Think
of it this way:
When you first bought your
home, you probably had a tradi-
tional "forward" mortgage. Every
month you made a payment and
your equity increased while your
debt decreased.
A reverse mortgage is exactly
the opposite. Instead of making
payments you receive payments.
You get the cash and your equity
decreases while your debt in-
creases.
Like traditional mortgages
and home equity loans, a reverse


mortgage is a secured loan you
take against the value of your
home. Unlike traditional mort-
gages and home equity loans,
as long as you live in your home
you do not have to pay back a re-
verse mortgage. That can make a
reverse mortgage a great way for
retirees to supplement their in-
come, turn their home equity into
cash, and hold on to their home
without worry.
Those benefits are especially
appealing to older homeowners
because a reverse mortgage al-
lows them to stay where they are
most comfortable in their fa-
miliar home surrounded by fond
memories. Plus they never have
to make a payment and they have
total flexibility about how they
spend their extra income.
Some of the benefits of a re-
verse mortgage are:

There are a few things you
should consider before you sign

How much would it cost you
to buy or rent a new place to live
How much money could you


earn by downsizing to a less ex-

should not have to pay a fee to

planning service for a referral

Riverside Bank is not offering Re-
verse Mortgages. You can get a
free list of approved lenders from
the United States Department of
Housing and Urban Development
(HUD). Just call 800-569-4287.
Once you receive your list work
with a trusted banker or financial
counselor to research your op-
tions and make a sound decision
for you and your loved ones.

Wetter weather brings unwanted visitors


By Roxanne Connelly,
Extension Service
Entomologist and Dan
Culbert, Extension
Horticultural Agent
UF/IFAS Extension
Service
You don't "see 'em, but you
sure feel 'em!"
Anyone who spends time out
of doors fondly remembers the
dry weather of a few weeks ago.
Ranchers, gardeners, fisher-
men and anyone who spends
time in the great outdoors has
probably noticed that those un-
welcome seasonal visitors have
finally arrived.
When soils become moist and
temperatures rise, these small
mosquito relatives fly out of the
wetlands, looking for a little sip of
blood.
They can't be seen, but they
sure can be felt, with sharp biting
pain whenever folks are outside,
especially at dawn and dusk.
Locals call them no-see-ems,
but University of Florida Entomol-
ogists are likely to identify these
as biting midges.
Biting midges can be a nui-
sance to anyone who spends
time outdoors during early morn-
ing and evenings.
Even during the daytime on
still, cloudy days they will readily
inflict irritating, painful, bites.
For some, their feeding can
cause long-lasting painful lesions
on exposed skin.

The invisible life
Biting midges are sometimes
incorrectly referred to as sand
flies, but true sand flies are a dif-
ferent group on insects.
Besides mosquitos, another
group of flies that can appear
under current weather condi-
tions are non-biting blind mos-
quitos that go by the local name
of "chizzywinks". (I wrote about
these critters a few years ago -
contact us if you want to see that
article.)
There are over 4,000 species
of biting midges. One genus, Cu-
licoides, has over a thousand dif-
ferent species world-wide, with
47 species known in Florida.
Some are commonly fond of cer-
tain habitats; any visit to Florida,
salt marshes will produce welts


from many different kinds of no-
see-ems.
The eggs are very small- about
0.25 mm long and laid on moist
soil. Some species can lay up to
450 eggs per batch and as many
as seven batches in a lifespan.
Eggs typically hatch within two to
10 days of being laid, depending
on the species and temperature.
Larvae are worm-like, creamy
white, and 1/16" to 1/8" [2-5 mm]
long.
Some of the larva of tropical
species lives in rotting fruit, bro-
meliads, and other water-holding
plants.
Other larval habitats include
mud, sand, and debris at edges
of ponds, lakes and springs, tree
holes, and slime-covered bark.
Local species typically feed on
small organisms close to the wa-
ter's surface.
The larval stage can last from
two weeks to a year, depending
on the species, temperatures, and
geographic area.
The resting pupa of these
midges is pale yellow to light or
dark brown.
During this 2-3 day resting pe-
riod, these insects change into air-
borne biting midges.
As they emerge, the new adult
males and females both feed on
nectar.
But the females will be looking
for blood primarily around dawn
and dusk required for her eggs
to mature.
Adult no-see-ums are gray and
less than 1/8 inch long.
Their two wings are hairy and
have color patterns that help to
identify species.
If you are able to see one up
close, their large compound eyes
more or less cover the entire front
of their head above their anten-
nae.
The mouthparts have cutting
teeth for blood-sucking in fe-
males, but not in males.
Biting midges are primarily a
nuisance.
The major medical issue asso-
ciated with them is allergic reac-
tions to the bites.
However, like other blood
feeding flies, some Culicoides
species carry pathogens that can
cause disease in humans and ani-
mals.
One species [C. sonorensis]

So if you are going to be out
with the bugs, wear protective
clothing and use insect repel-
lents.
Choose lighter colored gar-:
ments and those with long
sleeved pants and shirts. Consider
hats with fine meshed netting.
Insect repellents containing
DEET typically are also labeled for
use against no-see-ums.


There are some new repellents,
that may be tried please request
the UF bulletin on mosquito re-'
pellents http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/
IN419 for the latest research on
these products.
Use them before exposure to
the biting midges, and apply ac-
cording to the label.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu.

mation on biting midges (a.k.a.

SA useful and informative top ten list for the summer


If there is one thing I love, it's
a good top ten list, especially one
that involves food. And when it's
a list that gets me salivating and
helps me lose a few at the same
time, what's not to LOVE about
that? Here then are the top ten
skinny foods for summer. This is
the stuff you'll want to buy, eat,
keep in your pantry or fridge and
make sure you return to often.
Let this be your healthiest (and
skinniest!) summer ever!
1) Life is a Bowl of Cherries.
Cherries boast an alphabetical
punch of vitamins A, C, and E as
well as phytochemicals that help
block the formation of breast,
lung, liver, stomach and skin can-
cers. Add the fiber factor and the
medicinal properties that help
fight gout, and you can't say no
to cherries!
2) Melon Mania. Cantaloupe,
AKA Muskmelon, is chocked full
of potassium, vitamin C and beta
carotene. If that weren't enough,
how about some disease fighting
properties that help you control
blood pressure, protect against
cancer and lower your choles-
terol? Cool sliced cantaloupe is a
terrific way to start your day!
3) Beet It. Another colorful
entry into the top skinny foods
from summer is, believe it or not,
BEETS. Yes, beets. Not the icky
pickled kind found on salad bars
that no one touches, the fresh
variety. They're at their peak in
summer months and both the
greens and the bulb can be eat-
en. Yes, they can stave off cancer
and are folate-rich, an essential
nutrient for fighting birth defects.
Grate the purple part into your
salad and chop the tops, saut6
in olive and garlic for a satisfying
side dish.
4) Big on Basil. Who can say
no to fresh basil, sliced tomatoes
and fresh mozzarella drizzled
with olive oil in the middle of
summer? Not me! But basil is
more than a fabulous summer
flavor; it too, helps prevent can-
cerous changes in cells. Add to
that the digestive benefit of help-


ing to quell gaseous spasms (you
know what I'm trying to discreet-
ly suggest), you have one of na-
ture's most powerful herbs.
5) Provocative Avocados.
Don't freak out -- I know they
have a lot of fat. But a little goes
a long way and the monounsatu-
rated fats that are in there help
improve triglyceride levels and
bring down cholesterol. Bring
on the guacamole -- I make mine
with minced red onion, chopped
cilantro, lime juice and a dash of
chipotle salsa -- viva los avoca-
dos!
6) Okra-at-home-a. In the'


South, we deep-fry it, but don't
you do that if you want the health
and nutrition benefits of lovely
okra. Try sauteing it in a little ol-
ive oil with some garlic for a taste
treat. Okra is full of glutathione,
a compound that attacks cancer.
Additionally, the vitamin C con-
tent is nothing to sneeze at, nor is
the magnesium or fiber!
7) Onion rings. Not the kind
you're thinking. I'm talking fresh
-- the kind you chop, cook, saut6
or eat raw in rings. Onions may
help lower blood pressure, relieve
congestion and reduce inflam-
mation as well as decrease your


risk of cancer. And when you add
to that the fact that they are both
cheap and low in calories, let's
eat onions on everything. Got
Tic-Tacs?
8) Pick Parsley. Yes, plain or-
dinary parsley makes the list.
You can chop this up, keep it in
the fridge and'scatter it atop any-
thing. Did you know parsley can
help relieve a urinary tract infec-
tion as well as help with PMS?
Oh yes, but wait there's more. It's
also full of vitamin C, folate and
can help you freshen your breath
(that's kinda important if you're
eating lots of number 7!).

Mahoney Statement on State of


Florida, U.S. Sugar Land Deal


Clewiston, FL Following
the announcement that the
State of Florida and South
Florida Water Management
District have reached a $1.7
billion deal to buy 187,000
acres of U.S. Sugar Corp.'s
lands, Congressman Tim Ma-
honey issued this statement:

"The State of Florida's deci-
sion to have South Florida Water
Management purchase 187,000
acres of land owned by U.S. Sugar
Corp. holds the promise of taking
a major step towards Everglades
restoration.
Converting this farmland into
filter marshes will mean a greater
and cleaner flow of water into the
Everglades, lessening the need to
use the Caloosahatchee and St
Lucie Rivers as runoff.


It will improve our estuaries
and help our coastal communi-
ties.
Today's decision provides an
important complement to Con-
gress' recent passage of the Wa-
ter Resources Development Act
(WRDA), which has finally posi-
tioned the Federal Government to
live up to its promise to help fund
Everglades restoration.
Furthermore, Everglades resto-
ration is critical for South Florida's
economic development as it will
provide fresh water for our re-
gion.
Since coming to Congress,
one of my top priorities has been
to create jobs with a future for ru-
ral Florida around Lake Okeecho-
bee.
While all Floridians applaud
this bold move to restore the Ev-


erglades, we must recognize our
responsibility to the tens of thou-
sands of people of Hendry, Palm
Beach and Glades Counties.
A comprehensive economic
development plan must be devel-
oped immediately to ensure that
these communities do not suffer.
I call on Governor Christ to lay
out his transition plan and I com-
mit to working with the Governor
to secure a bright future for the
affected families living in some
of our most economically chal-
lenged communities."

Regional marketing and branding camp;


NAPLES, FL., June 12, 2008 -
The Southwest Florida Economic
Development Partners, a new ini-
tiative of economic development
executives and other key stake-
holders working on regional mar-
keting and branding opportunities
for Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Saraso-
ta, Glades and Hendry counties,
is seeking responses to a Request
for Qualifications (RFQ) for firms
that possess an expertise in devel-
oping new regional branding and
marketing campaigns.
"The focus of the regional
economic development initiative
is the recruitment, retention and


creation of high-wage iobs in tar-
geted high technology industry
clusters, such as health, life and
environmental sciences, infor-
mation technology, and specialty
manufacturing," said Tammie
Nemecek, President of the Eco-
nomic Development Council of
Collier County.
The firm selected for this RFQ
will have the ability to understand
the various communities in the
region, along with the unique as-
sets and infrastructure and join
these together into an image that
effectively demonstrates the re-
gional ability to attract and grow


the select business clusters that
will produce high-wage jobs and
diversify the region's economy.
"There is a need to attract high-
paying industries to diversify the
regional economy," said Dr. Rich-
ard Pegnetter, Founding Dean of
the Lugert College of Business at
Florida Gulf Coast University.
The Southwest Florida Eco-
nomic Development Partners is
seeking firms to provide a scope
of services that will include facili-
tating a half day or full day meet-
ing with representatives from the
economic development organiza-
tions throughout the region and a


select a group of other stakehold-
ers.
Input from the meeting will
be used to create a written com-
munications and marketing plan
that will include a timeline and
detailed budget to implement, at
a future date, the following items
or others as deemed appropriate:

Regional identity and
brand development, to include
new logo and motto. This would
also include incorporating logo-
identity into the design of letter-
head, envelopes, website and
other outreach material.

Progress in Bee Branch Bridge replacement


Glades County
The Bee Branch River Bridge
on C.R. 720 in Muse is closed for
demolition and replacement by a
new wider bridge scheduled to
open on or before Monday,
Aug. 18. During the coming
week crews will continue to de-
molish the old bridge and install


infrastructure for the new bridge.
The detour route for motorists
traveling west on C.R. 720 is Fern-
wood Road (1 mile) to Crescent
Acres Road (3.5 miles) to State
Road 78 (4.8 miles) to Kirby Road
(0.2 miles) to Kirby Thompson
Road (5 miles) and back to west-
bound C.R. 720.
Motorists traveling east on C.R.


720 can cross the river by taking
Kirby Thompson Road to Kirby
Road to State Road 78 to Cres-
cent Acres Road to Fernwood
Road and back to C.R. 720 east-
bound. Motorists are reminded
to drive with caution and to obey
the posted speed limits along the
detour route that includes an un-
paved section of Crescent Acres


Road. In addition to a new bridge,
the project includes paved shoul-
ders and sodding on roadway
approaches to the bridge, new
guardrails, new signs and pave-
ment markings.
Pittsfield Construction, Inc. is
the contractor.


Florida drivers are now running on empty


The number of Sunshine State
Drivers running out of gas on the
highway skyrocketed nearly 35
percent in the first five months
of 2008 compared to the same
time last year -- according to the
Allstate Motor Club.
From January through May of
2008, Florida drivers called the
motor club for fuel delivery 253
times.
Nationwide, calls to Allstate
Motor Club for running out of
gas are up by 52 percent for the
first months of 2008 over the
same time last year.
"We can't directly correlate
this rise in the number of people
running out of gas to the rise in


prices at the pump, but anecdot-
ally we know that consumers are
trying hard to stretch their dol-
lar and sometimes that means
stretching fuel into fumes," said
Phil Lawson, Field Vice Presi-
dent Florida Region.
"Drivers should remember
running out of gas on the high-
way can be a lot more than an
inconvenience; it can be hazard-
ous."
The average wait time for a
can of gas is half an hour, but
more troublesome than the has-
sle is the danger of being stuck
on the road.
According to the roadside as-
sistance experts at Allstate Motor


Club, running out of gas increas-
es the risk of much more serious
accidents for the driver with the
empty tank and other motorists
that suddenly have to maneuver
around the mistake.
If you find yourself out of
gas, Allstate Motor Club recom-
mends remembering your own
safety first.
If you feel your car running
out of gas, get off the road.
Pulling your car to the curb
will help keep you, your passen-
gers and your vehicle from be-
coming traffic hazards and help
keep you safe.
If you run out of gas in traf-
fic, stay in your vehicle until you


are absolutely certain it is safe to
get out of the vehicle.
Push your vehicle to the side
of the road only after you are
clear of other cars and you are
sure it is safe.
Call for help after you and
your passengers are in a secure
location.
If you do not have a roadside
assistance membership, many
states and municipalities have
emergency roadside assistance
services that may help get you
and your car out of harm's way.

Officials say Lake wildfire finally 'dead out'


Fires on the lake
finally out, after two
months

GLADES COUNTY After
burning for nearly two months,
wildfire inside Lake Okeechobee
is controlled or "dead out," ac-
cording to the Florida Division of
Forestry.
On Tuesday, the DOF reported
the Myakka Cut Wildfire inside
Lake Okeechobee was controlled
at 38,000 acres.


The wildfire was first reported
2 miles inside the lake on May 2,
2008 at 10:20 a.m.
The fire was controlled on
Monday, June 23, 2008 at 10 a.m.
The DOF's fixed wing aircraft
flew the entire area and reported
that there was no visible smoke
or activity inside the lake.
The Florida Division of Forestry
would like to thank the following
agencies for their tireless efforts in
actively fighting and continuously
monitoring this wildfire: Glades
County Fire/Rescue, South Flor-


ida Water Management District,
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Clewiston Fire Rescue, Florida
Department of Agriculture, Flor-
ida Department of Transporta-
tion, Florida Highway Patrol and
Glades County Sheriff. Without
everyone's collaboration and co-
operation this wildfire could have
been more of a threat to the com-
munities that border the lake.
The fire proved a pest to the
neighboring communities of the
lake, filling the early morning
skies with thick fog -- which was


the largest contributor of a wreck
in Clewiston recently.
For additional information
contact the local Division of For-
estry at 772-260-0053 or visit the i
DOF Web site at www.fl-dof.com

is damaged and exposed, you
would not want criminals to get
hold of them, nor would you want
children and teens to accidentally
find them. If there is no place to
secure these items, check with
a neighbor or relative and see if
they have secure storage.
Vehicles
It is vital to prepare your vehi-
cle for evacuation ahead of time
when you are not in a rush. It is
difficult to predict how long it will
take to get to your destination.
Traffic congestion, road condi-
tions and weather will influence
your trip. Besides filling the gas
tank and keeping the washer and
engine fluids level, make sure you
have plenty of coolant and addi-
tional water for the radiator.
Check for adequate tire
and spare tire inflation, and be
equipped for maintenance, re-

provide what's needed to con-
nect Lake Okeechobee to the Ev-
erglades.
"Sixty years ago, President
Harry Truman came to South
Florida to dedicate the Everglades
National Park," Gov. Crist said.
"Today, we follow in the great
footsteps and in the tradition of
the great conservationist Presi-
dent Teddy Roosevelt.
"We continue their legacy of
permanent preservation of the
one of the most unique land-
scapes of our country and on
the planet," Gov. Crist continued.
"We have an opportunity to pro-
vide the critical missing link in
our restoration activities. I can
envision no better gift to the Ever-
glades, or to the people of Florida,
or to our country than to place in
public ownership this missing
link that represents the key to true
restoration."
Water district officials say that
the land purchase will offer its
managers the opportunity and
flexibility to store and clean water
on a scale never before contem-
plated.
The district continued, say-
ing that this action is expected to
build upon and enhance the 30-
year state/federal Comprehensive
verglades Restoration Plan and
+ the'state's Northern Everglades
program to restore and protect
Lake Okeechobee, the St. Lu-
cie and Caloosahatchee rivers, as
well as their respective estuaries.
"The significance of this mo-
ment will forever be recorded in
Florida's environmental history,"
said Shannon Estenoz, the water
management district's vice chair-
person of its governing board.
"Today, we offer the Everglades
Restoration opportunities once
thought impossible, environmen-
tal progress once considered un-
achievable and protections just
a decade ago believed unattain-


pairs and changing a flat. Don't
forget the jumper cables, and
have your car keys in a handy
place. Store extra keys in several
places in case the original ones
are misplaced or lost. Bring some
carpet remnants in case your tires
are stuck in mud or sand, because
you never know when you might
have to take a detour. Take duct
tape, WD-40, rope, bungee cords,
rain gear, road flares, fire extin-
guisher, flashlights or lanterns.
Angie LaPlant, AAA Auto Club
South project manager, recom-
mends getting a checklist ready.

corn/flood.
Electronics
If you have room in your ve-
hicle you may want to bring your
electronic devices. If you end up
staying at a shelter, or temporary
housing, you may want to include
your laptop computer, iPod, re-
store disks, modems, router
and printer because these items
may have valuable information
for your family; or your job may


able. History will mark today as
a watershed event for restoring
our beloved national treasure, the
Everglades, and generations will
thank the governor for his leader-
ship in making it happen."
According to the district, major
benefits of the land acquisition in-
clude huge increases in the avail-
ability of water storage, which will
significantly reduce the potential
for harmful discharges from Lake
Okeechobee to the state's coastal
rivers and estuaries when the lake
levels are high.
Also, the decision is expected
to prevent phosphorus from en-
tering into the Everglades every
year a concern that environmen-
talists had.
Most importantly, perhaps, the
need for 'back-pumping' water
into Lake Okeechobee from the
EAA will be forever eliminated,
district officials claim. To protect
water quality, the district voted
this year not to back-pump into
the lake during the ongoing water
shortage period.
"The opportunity to secure
such a monumental agreement
to benefit the Everglades pres-
ents itself just once in a lifetime,"
said Eric Buermann, the govern-
ing board chairperson of the wa-
ter management district. "Until
today, managing the treatment
and delivery of water from Lake
Okeechobee directly south to the
Everglades has remained a distant
dream for those committed to the
preservation 'of this iunhique"eco-
system. I am grateful to the gover-
nor for his bold vision in making
this dream a reality."
John Adornato, the regional
director of the National Parks
Conservation Association, agreed
with the sentiment, but added
that federal support and funding is
needed to revitalize the plan that
will restore the health and natural
sheet flow of the Everglades. He
hopes that not only it will lead to
increased capacity for cleaning
polluted water, but assist in stor-
ing excess rainwater and improve
the water delivery from Lake


rely on them. Of course this is a
judgement call. You may not have
enough room, or you may real-
ize something frivolous will have
to go in order to make room for
your electronics. Taking a laptop
is easier than packing up the full
size PC. Try to email copies of
photos, documents and other in-
formation to friends or family out-
side the evacuation areas.
Naturally, you will see that
your cell phone is fully charged.
Bring its AC battery charger, and a
DC battery charger that works off
the car battery. An old cell phone
can come in handy even though
you no longer have service with
it. Many older cell phones are pro-
grammed to reach 911 even if you
no longer have service with it.
Don't rely exclusively on GPS
car navigation systems. Include
road maps and road guides in
print in case technology fails.
Sometimes cell phone service is
not as reliable as promised by the
advertising industry. Fans of citi-
zen band (CB) radio keep them
as backup communication.


Okeechobee to the Everglades.
"Our federally elected officials
must stay focused on those basic
principles originally outlined to re-
store the Everglades and provide
the necessary funding to support
ongoing restoration activities,"
Mr. Adornato said. "We must
leave a legacy for our children
and grandchildren by saving one
of the great special places in the
world, America's Everglades."
The decision's effect
on the South Lake area
Michael Martin, a Belle Glade
commissioner and the owner of
MCM Paints Inc., which has loca-
tions in Belle Glade and in Clewis-
ton, understands.. the concern
being expressed by citizens and
business owners throughout the
area.
While many -locals fear that
unemployment will make a no-
ticeable increase due to the fateful
decision, Mr. Martin preferred to
think on a positive front as it will
give everyone involved enough
time to prepare for the inevitable
changes that will take place in
about six years.
"As a business owner, I think
Clewiston will be fine," Mr. Martin
said. "It will survive because of
tourism and we do have things to
rely on other than U.S. Sugar. Bass
fishing may come back soon, so I
think Clewiston will survive."
Assets involved other than the
land include the sugar mills and
refineries, the citrus plants and
nurseries, rock mines, railroads,
railcars and all of the sugar com-
pany's equipment.
Two subsidiaries that will be
greatly include the South Cen-
tral Florida Express railroad op-
eration and Southern Citrus Gar-
dens, which owns land in Hendry
County and 80 more acres in Gil-
christ County. It is not known at
this time what the .water district
will do with all of these various
components.
Just prior to meeting with the
sugar company's employees on
Tuesday afternoon, Mr. Coker


Pets
David Cline is the animal con-
trol officer for Glades County.
He understands that pets and
livestock can be very special to
people, and their safety may be
overlooked during the stress of
an emergency. He hopes pets will
have all their vaccinations up to
date, and that they are identified
with tags. Bring crates and leash-
es to keep your pet restrained.
"The microchip is a good
idea," said Mr. Cline.
He commented that his de-
partment has the means to scan
the information on microchips,
which are tiny high tech pet sav-
ers. It is injected under the ani-
mal's skin by a veterenarian or
animal rescue worker. The iden-
tification of the animal is detected
when the scanner picks up a ra-
dio signal.
Suzanne M. Bonnell, Caloosa
Humane Society, Inc., mentions
that a microchip, or Ident-a-chip
is great idea for dogs, cats, ferrets,
horses and all other kinds of pets.


said that there's no short-term in-
tention of laying off any workers'
as a result of this decision.
"We're going to need all of
our employees to help us run our
business for the next six years,"
Mr. Coker said. "We'll be provid-
ing incentives for all of our em-
ployees to stay with us."
Mr. Coker briefly outlined the
proposed benefits, which will
include an undisclosed compen-
sation package for each full-time
employee. The hourly package is
set to be negotiated by the com-
pany's union, while the salaried
retention will be determined
in conjunction with the nego-
tiations, according to the senior
vice-president.
"We're fortunate that we have
a six-year transition period," Mr.
Coker said. "In most cases like
this, communities and compa-
nies have only months, not years,
to provide for such a transition."
The senior vice-president said
that though U.S. Sugar plans to
sell all of its land and assets to
the water district, approximately
400,000 acres in farmland will
remain in the EAA. In fact, ac-
cording to Mr. Coker, the remain-
ing farmers in the area will have
improvements in their businesses
due to the decision made by U.S.
Sugar.
U.S. Sugar representatives are
expecting that as a result, housing
and recreational opportunities, as
well as the possibility of environ-
ment-enhancng"'b opporititinles,
will come to the area.
"This project allows for all of
those other agribusinesses in our
area to be sustainable," Mr. Coker
said. "This is a win for the State of
Florida, a win for the Everglades
environment and a win for our
employees and shareholders.
There are no losers in this deal."
Esther Berry, the vice-mayor of
South Bay, doesn't see the deci-
sion exactly the same way as she's
concerned about job placement
for all of the U.S. Sugar workers in
the future. Also, though many of
the sugar company's employees


"No matter where you go to
get an Ident-a-chip, make sure the
registration is included. You can
make an appointment with vet-
eranarians, animal control agen-
cies, and Humane Societies for
chip implantation. Registering the
chip is how you insure your pets
safe return," said Ms. Bonnell.
She also mentioned that you
may have to pay extra for the reg-
istration, or it may be included in
the price of the chip. Just make
sure you get the registration done.

You may have to search for a

live in the Lake Okeechobee re-
gion (Canal Point, Pahokee, Belle
Glade, South Bay, Clewiston,
Moore Haven, Ortona, Lakeport,
Buckhead Ridge and Okeecho-
bee), there are quite a few who
live anywhere from Fort Myers to
the west and West Palm Beach to
the east.
"We need a strategic planning
approach to address the econom-
ic transition of these principles
signed by the governor and the
impact on the area," the South
Bay vice-mayor said. "This refers
to job training, displaced work-
ers, the impact of small business-
es and its families and the future
of our area."
"I would hope that the state
would step in and help train the
displaced workers at U.S. Sugar,"
Mr. Martin added.
According to the knowledge
of U.S. Sugar representatives,
Governor Crist has ordered state
agencies to assist with economic
development and job creation
in the region. U.S. Sugar officials
hope that local leaders will see
the decision as an opportunity to
help determine their future and
take advantage of any opportuni-
ties that could be made possible
by the partnership with the state.
Judy Sanchez, a representative
for U.S. Sugar Corporation, be-
lieves that overall, new economic
and lifestyle opportunities as the
transition period will take the
Lake Okeechobee communities
in a new direction.
"This is a bittersweet moment
for a company that has been
farming this land for more than
four generations," Ms. Sanchez
said. "However, we believe the
cause is good and U.S. Sugar is
proud to be part of this historic
opportunity with Governor Crist
to make extraordinary progress
in Everglades Restoration and
restore much of the natural foot-
print of South Florida."

Century

Plant blooms

in Lakeport
The Century Plant or Maguey
(Agave americana) is an agave
originally from Mexico but culti-
vated worldwide.
The flower spike, grows at an
amazing rate of 5-6 inches per
day, and have been known to
reach 25-35 feet in height.
The plant's spreading rosette
of gray-green leaves can grow
up to 6 ft. long, each with a spiny
margin and a heavy spike at the
tip.
Legend says the century
plant takes one hundred years to
bloom. However, century plants
in cultivation may bloom much
quicker. The plant will use all of
its energy to produce its once-in-
a-lifetime bloom and the spike
with a ball of big yellow flowers,
may reach up to 25 ft. in height.
After it finishes flowering it will
die. It produces suckers or adventi-
tious shoots from the base, which
continue its growth. The average
life-span is around 25 years.
Cultivated varieties include the
'Marginata' with yellow stripes
along the margins of each leaf,
'Medio-picta' with a central white
band, 'Striata' with multiple yel-
low to white stripes along the
leaves, and 'Variegata' with whitl
edges on the leaves.
The plant is also known as thl
American aloe, although it is in f
different family from the true al
oes.
If the flower stem is cut without
flowering, a sweet liquid called
agua miel ("honey water") gath-
ers in the heart of the plant. This
may be fermented to produce the
drink called pulque.
The leaves also yield fibers,
known as pita, which are suitable
for making rope, matting, coarse
cloth and are used for embroidery
of leather in a technique known
as piteado.
Agave syrup (also called agave
nectar) which comes from the
plant has recently been marketed
as a healthful natural sugar sub-
stitute.
Tequila is made from a dif-
ferent species, Agave tequilana
(also called Blue Agave or Tequila
Agave).
The American Century Plant
is not commonly available from
nurseries, garden stores and oth-
er plant dealers and, distributors.
It can be propagated bvbarteoot,
container, seed and sprigs. It has
a slow ability to spread through
seed production and the seed;,
lings have a slow growth as.wel*1
The plant cannot in its feature
state survive exposure to temper,
atures below 12F. It has a high
tolerance to drought and restrict-
ed water conditions.
When grown in areas contain1
ing livestock and other plants, it .
safe and non toxic to both and is
a fire resistant plant as well.
