Grades County Democrat

GLADES/HENDRY - More
than 400 concerned residents
and officials from communities
around Lake Okeechobee and
the central Heartland region
met at John Boy Auditorium in
Clewiston, July 21.
Previously, on June 24 it was
announced by Governor Charlie
Crist and South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
that the state would buy out
United States Sugar Corpora-
tion (USSC) and its mill, refinery,
railroad, 187,000 acres and other
holdings. In six years, the larg-
est agriculture business in the
Glades region will close down
for good. The fine-tuned details
of the transaction will be final-
ized by Nov. 30. That is a short
period of time for a long term
plan
The main focus of comments
was the drastic impact facing
not only 1,700 employees and
their families, but the scores of
ancillary businesses that directly
and indirectly survive as suppli-
ers and sub-contractors for the
sugar industry. County, city and
state agency jobs and projects
from around the region may be
influenced by the $1.75 billion
deal.
Chris Doolin, Small County
Coalition, mentioned that coast-
al communities will benefit the,
most; and the counties that can
least afford the brunt of eco-
nomic loss are the ones mak-
ing sacrifices. The Small County
Coalition mission is to provide
visibility and support to small
counties and rural communities.
Mr. Doolin also commented on
the tight-lipped negotiations that


occurred between USSC and the
state.
"Many of the highest of-
fice holders in the state did not
know," said Mr. Doolin.
Pahokee Mayor, Wayne Whi-
taker, lamented the plight of 16
counties in the agriculture de-
pendant district that will be pay-
ing for it.
"I don't think that is fair," Mr.
Whitaker said.
The small town of Paho-
kee, on the east bank of Lake
Okeechobee, saw the closing
of the local Bryant sugar mill in
2007.
Clewiston Mayor, Mali Cham-
ness, mentioned the area will be
held captive for six years, and
that tourism alone is not enough
to sustain the economy.
"We need definite plans
now," said Ms Chamness.
The small town of Clewis-
ton, on the south bank of Lake
Okeechobee, has already seen
many employees laid off within
USSC in the last several years.
Glades County Commission-
er, Butch Jones, is also a railroad
engineer for USSC and chairman
for Florida Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Intitiative,
Inc. (FHREDI). The county he
represents borders the western
bank of Lake Okeechobee, and
has been facing economic hard-
ship for decades.
"Communities around the
lake are family," Mr. Jones said.
The sugar industry has sus-
tained families in the Northern
Everglades for more than 80
years. At the end of the meeting,
not one official nor state agency
representative was able to offer
current plans for sustaining the
health and welfare of rural fami-
lies.

Hearing loss customer


rs have phone access



t ','


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission (PSC)
Chairman Matthew M. Carter II
and Florida Telecommunications
Relay, Inc. (FTRI) Executive Di-
rector James Forstall teamed up
to recognize the 18th anniversary
of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) by showing Florida res-
idents with hearing loss how to
connect with 911, family, friends,
and businesses.
Specialized telephone equip-
ment offered through FTRI pro-
vides critical access to basic
telecommunications services for
deaf, hard of hearing, deaf/blind,
and speech disabled citizens
throughout the state.
Overseen by the PSC, FTRI is a
statewide nonprofit organization
established in 1991, as a result of
the Americans with Disabilities
Act, to administer the Specialized
Telecommunications Equipment
Distribution Program.
"Ensuring that disabled individ-
uals are not discriminated against,
the Americans with Disabilities
Act guarantees telecommunica-
tions access for the hearing im-
paired and speech disabled," said
Chairman Carter.
"In Florida, the PSC is charged
with implementing this direc-
tive. Telephone access provided
through Florida's Relay Service
(FRS) offers peace of mind for
people with hearing loss and their
families."
Florida ranks second nation-
wide in population percentage
with hearing loss, affecting nearly
three million citizens.
More than 3.8 million calls
were handled last fiscal year by
FRS, according to the PSC's 2007
annual report on the Status of the
Telecommunications Access Sys-
tem.
The report also stated that


18,937 new deaf, hard of hearing,
deaf/blind, and speech disabled
individuals were served through-
out the state; and 41,337 pieces of
specialized telecommunications
equipment were distributed.
"I sincerely believe that Florida
residents' telephone needs are
being met with the special tele-
phone that is available through
the FTRI program and the Florida
Relay Service.
Our mission is to provide a
special telephone and services to
each Floridian with a hearing loss
or speech disability to allow them
access to the telecommunications
system.
FTRI enjoys a successful work-
ing relationship with the PSC as
well as numerous organizations
throughout Florida.
Working together, we make a
positive difference in someone's
life by "Connecting People to
People," said Mr. Forstall.
FRS supplies quick and conve-
nient telephone access 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year.
Individuals with or without a
hearing loss or speech disability
can place a call through the sys-
tem, and no restrictions are made
on the number or length of calls.
FRS gives users the freedom
and opportunity to make both
personal and business calls.
How does the FRS system
work?
A resident uses a Telecom-
munications Device for the Deaf
(TTY or TDD), which includes a
keyboard and screen, to type a
message to a specially trained
communications assistance op-
erator, who then voices the mes-
sage to the receiving party.
The reverse process then com-
pletes the message to the person
with hearing loss.
The equipment and ring sig-


naling devices are loaned to all
qualified permanent Florida resi-
dents at no charge for as long as
necessary.
For information on how to
obtain the specialized equip-
ment, call FTRI at 1-800-222-3448
(Voice) or 1-888-447-5620 (TTY)
or visit www.ftri.org.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,


telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner.
The PSC exercises regulatory
authority over utilities in the areas
of rate base/economic regulation;
competitive market oversight;
and the monitoring of safety, reli-
ability, and service.

Promises Kept...
I Promised we would wage an all our war on drugs in Hendry County. To date, we have closed down 40 grow houses
in Hendry County and annihilated a major crack cocaine distribution ring involving several counties
I Promised we would re-establish the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (DARE) Program
in our schools. We have done that with tremendous participation by the students.
I Promised we would work closely with County and City Governments and Community
Groups to be knowledgeable of their projects and concerns and be pro-active.
I Promised we would hold sacred your trust in us to provide you with the highest
level of law enforcement while at the same time being wise in the ways
YOUR Tax Dollars are spent.
I promised we would combine our experience and knowledge with modern
technology to fight all elemeffns of crime in Hendry County.


'd Personally organized an emergency relief system of deputies who worked post-hurricane support delivering food,
water, diapers and ice to Hendry area families for two months after Hurricane Wilma; also personally responded
with resources to aide Hurricane Katrina victims in Mississippi.
...and the list goes on. Not only has your Sheriff kept'the promises he made last term, but he has gone way beyond them!
Ronnie Lee knows Law Enforcement and he know Hendry County. You voted for the man who knows what you need and
you trust him to get the job done. Your Sheriff hasn't let you down, and won't let you down. Please help me continue
protecting Hendry County residents.

Troublesome bridge about to be rejuvenated


By Barbara Oehlbeck
In Hardee County, some 85
miles north-northwest of Muse,
there is a minor waterway that
history tells us has played a ma-
jor role in the lives of early Flo-
ridians for way over a century or
more. It's been a source of drink-
ing and household water, like for
bathing and washing clothes, it's
been a playground for little and
big folks 'most every day when
the sun shines and that's most of
'em in these parts. Children learn
to dive and swim and when the
time came these same children
and some adults were baptized
in the bubbling, clear water of
Troublesome Creek. Parents and
off-spring alike kept their fishing
poles handy. And one picturesque
site alongside the creek became
the home site of one of the first
settlers of the entire area, long be-
fore it was named Hardee County.
He built a log cabin from trees cut
on the place for himself and his
bride. His name was Carlton, a
family name that is well spread
over the entire area of Hardee
County and environs. After all, Al-
bert Carlton and his wife, Martha,
added 9 sons and one daughter to
the population.
And some ask: why such a
name for such a naturally pretty
creek? Well, there are more than
a few who've heard hand-me-
down stories about the name.
One well-known tale declares
that an old Indian in his last-day
wanderings, settled down beside
the creek with his wigwam, his
cooking fire and his cane fishing
pole. He bothered no one and ap-
parently no one bothered him for
a long time. However, from time


to time it was said that he took a
chicken or so that did not belong
to him and that could have been
a "trouble". Thus, one of the tales
that linked the word "Trouble-
some"' to the creek.
And another tale is simply that
wagons and buggies and carts
and the like had trouble fording
the creek with its steep banks and
considerable rocks and boulders.
And, in places Troublesome Creek
is shallow and in other locations it
is of considerable depth.
Nevertheless, for whatever rea-
sons, the name "Troublesome"
stuck. Its headwaters begin in
Hardee County and its ending is
in the Peace River.
In the western quadrant of
Glades County, in an area known
as Muse, there's a creek name
"Bee Branch", which some say is
a large creek or a small river. Nev-
ertheless, this waterway rises and
falls, that is, goes up and down
like a window shade, accord-
ing to rainfall. At times it floods
surrounding lands as well as the
main road going westward that
leads into the area. And for new-
comers to the area, the question
often arises: Is there water un-
der this bridge? Yes, mostly there
is, albeit overgrown with water
weeds of all sorts and unfortu-
nately garbage and trash from
those who've been called purely
troublesome people, thus water
as such can seldom be seen.
Many years ago, before there
was any bridge across "Bee
Branch", adults who wanted or
needed to go "to town" (LaBelle)
simply took their shoes off, wad-
ed across the creek, and proceed-
ed on their way. That is, if they


couldn't hitch a ride on a wagon
or buggy coming' or goin'. School
children living east of the branch
did the same thing who attended
the one school in the area which,
at that time, was located on old
Muse Road, west of Bee Branch.
It's said by a couple of real
old-timers, that the first bridge
that spanned this main road (CR
720/dateunknown) was a wood
structure which was replaced
with a concrete bridge following
WWII, circa 1945. This bridge
served a good purpose for over
a half century but then when the
vegetable farms started spring-
ing up in Muse by the hundreds
of acres and maybe more, natu-
rally trucks servicing the farms
used the bridge at which time its
demise was not unexpected but
nevertheless, a "troublesome"
fact of life for those living west of
Bee Branch.
Some area residents, particu-
larly those living in the vicinity of
the bridge, began to see and hear
ominous signs that gave them
great concern about the safety of
the bridge. Several years ago, this
concern became a rather major
issue of the Muse Community As-
sociation. 'Ivo members of that
association crawled down under
the bridge, took pictures which
were more than a little "telling",
presented, them to Glades County
Commissioners and the pressure
was on to build a new bridge, es-
pecially in view of school buses
going in and out of the area.
In the meantime, the Glades
County Road Department
"shored" up the bridge, installed
"slow down" strips on both ap-
proaches and put up signs, fol-


lowing an ordinance from the
county, to the effect that there
was to be NO TRUCK TRAFFIC.
The shoring up of the bridge, and
reinforcing the understructure,
did their job, and the bridge did
last until permits and financing
were arranged for a new bridge
which took a couple years or so.
However, the NO TRUCK TRAF-
FIC signs were ignored and not
enforced, but the bridge did hold
together until construction of the
new replacement structure was
begun in June, 2008. It has been
announced that the project will
be completed by the end of Au-
gust, just in time for going back
to school.
In the meantime the detour
route is a 'troublesome' burden
especially in view of plus-or-
minus $4 gas prices. The detour
route takes drivers west and south
via Kirby Thompson Road into
Hendry County - Route 78 - to
LaBelle, or cross the Big River/Ca-
loosahatchee at Fort Denaud. The
left turn goes to LaBelle, the right
turn to Alva and/or Fort Myers.
As bridges go, it's a minor
structure; however, like all bridg-
es it will get us,
whomever, or whatever, from
one side to the other. And it'll be
a problem that probably won't be
troublesome for the rest of this
century.

General News and Information


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 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.

Consumers urged to check out


travel companies before trip


TALLAHASSEE -- With the
prime vacation season fully under
way, Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson encourages
residents to check out their travel
agency before booking a vaca-
tion.
"While most travel agencies
are reputable and most agents
are honorable professionals, we
occasionally come across those
that are not," Commissioner
Bronson said.
"And there's nothing worse
than saving for a vacation and
then paying thousands of dollars
for it only to learn later that you've
been taken by a con artist."
Before booking a trip, Com-
missioner Bronson recommends
that consumers consider the fol-
lowing tips:
* Call the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-
435-7352) to determine whether
the business is registered with the
state and to determine its com-
plaint history.
Some travel companies are
members of the Airline Report-
ing Corporation, which exempts
them from registering with the
state, but a phone call to the


hotline can verify that fact.
* Never give credit card or
checking account numbers over
the telephone or on a website un-
less you initiated the call or con-
tact, and are certain of the creden-
tials of the company.
* Look for the seller of travel's
current registration certificate
posted in its place of business,
and its registration number print-
ed on all flyers, brochures and all
other advertising materials.
* Know and understand the
company's cancellation policy
before making any purchase.
Some may be non-refundable or
have penalties or additional fees
for re-scheduling.
* Obtain itineraries, accom-
modations and other specifics of
the trip in writing so if there is a
dispute with the travel company
you have a written record of what
you have purchased.
It is also advisable to call the
airline on which you're booked or
hotel in which you're scheduled
to stay to verify your reservations.
According to Commissioner
Bronson, complaints against
travel companies consistently


rank among the top complaints
received by the Division of Con-
sumer Services.
Last year, for example, the de-
partment received nearly 2,800
written complaints against such
companies, placing them second
behind only unwanted telemar-
keting calls in 2007.
Consumers can file online
complaints against travel com-
panies on the Division of Con-
sumer Services website at http://
www.800helpfla.com.
They can also call the depart-
ment's hotline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) and request
that a complaint form be sent to
them.
During the last five years,
Bronson's department has re-
funded more than $7.5 million to
consumers who filed complaints
against travel companies.
"We've had a good deal of
success getting refunds for con-
sumers in disputes with travel
agencies," Mr. Bronson said.
"But the best course is to avoid
having problems in the first place,
which why we recommend that
consumers check out a travel
company before they do business
with them."


Disaster readiness is essential


By Chip Wilson
Statewide Disability
Coordinator
For many years, Florida has
been infamous for the number of
hurricanes which have impacted
the state. While this is true, our
population is also affected by
other types of disasters.
Several years ago, wildfires
were rampant and thousands
of acres of land were burned,
dozens of houses were lost, and
many lives were changed forever.
Just over a year ago, tornadoes
were responsible for over a dozen
deaths in the central part of the
state.
These events underscore the
need to have a good, comprehen-
sive preparedness plan - especial-
ly for people with disabilities.
Disaster preparedness for
people with disabilities can pres-
ent unique problems due to each


person's disability. Some people
are dependent on external oxy-
gen supplies, some are depen-
dent on electricity for ventilators
or to keep medication at a con-
stant cool temperature, and some
require a consistent ambient tem-
perature.
There are many other factors
ranging from mobility device de-
pendency to communication re-
quirements. With this in mind, it
is important that people with dis-
abilities, their families, caregivers,
and advocates are included and
participate in all phases of disas-
ter preparedness.
Disaster preparedness is truly
a team effort. Each of Florida's 67
counties has an Emergency Op-
eration Center which is staffed by
professionals in disaster prepared-
ness. Emergency management
professionals are encouraged to
reach out to the community and
include people with disabilities in


pre-event, during-event and post-
event planning. Also, individuals
with disabilities and disability-
related organizations are encour-
aged to contact their Emergency
Operations Center and offer to as-
sist in creating and testing the pre-
paredness plans which may be
affecting their lives. However, it is
advised that the public with dis-
abilities not wait for an invitation
to join the EOC but be proactive
and approach their emergency
management group and volun-
teer to assist in any way possible.
At an individual level, a fam-
ily plan can be built using the re-
sources found at www.floridadi-
saster.org. Select "Get a Family
Plan" and follow the directions
from there. Completing the plan
requires about 10 to 15
minutes and will help
you develop a compre-
hensive plan for you and
your family.

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is warning the public that
firewood can contain destructive
pests and diseases and is urging
people to take steps to reduce the
chance of an infestation.
Commissioner Bronson's Divi-
sion of Plant Industry has posted
a video about preventing the in-
troduction of destructive beetles
and other insects into Florida in
infested firewood on its web site
at http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/
videos.html. The pests can wreak
havoc on many types of trees and
other foliage.
Commissiofter Bronson says
many residents and tourists use
firewood for campfires, even
during the summer, and they
need to be aware of the poten-
tial problems. Several species of
destructive wood boring beetles
and diseases can inhabit popular
firewood varieties.
Numerous other states are bat-
tling insects and diseases and he is
concerned that out-of-state camp-
ers will bring their own firewood
to Florida, or people will move
potentially infested firewood from
one area of the state to another.
Any wood-boring beetles and dis-
eases that may have come along


for the ride could infest Florida
plants and trees.
For example, an Asian long-
horned beetle infestation has
resulted in the destruction of
thousands of maple, elm and
other trees in New York and Chi-
cago; and, the emerald ash borer
has killed millions of ash trees in
Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and
other states.
"It costs millions of dollars to
try and eradicate these pests, not
to mention the tremendous loss
of so many trees," Bronson said.
"The impact on the environment
can be significant and we need to
do everything possible to protect
our trees."
Most recently, a fungus that
causes a fatal disease called lau-
rel wilt threatens Florida forests.
A non-native insect, the red bay
ambrosia beetle, spreads the fun-
gus. Laurel wilt disease kills red
bays, sassafras and pond spice,
and even attacks one of Florida's
most important fruit trees, the
avocado.
Laurel wilt spread into Florida
after wood packing material in-
fested with red bay ambrosia bee-
tles was found in Savannah, Ga.
Dutch elm disease is another
serious problem spreading across
North America.


A fungus transmitted by two
species of bark beetles causes the
disease and has destroyed over
half the elm trees in the northern
United Sates. The fungus has not
yet been found in Florida.
Invasive pests and diseases ar-
rive in Florida each year at a rate
of at least one new significant pest
a month; they come in on cargo
shipments, storm fronts, infected
plant material, in the luggage
of millions of visitors to Florida,
and in firewood. There are ways
Floridians can protect against the
introduction of invasive pests and
diseases:
* Be vigilant. If you see signs
of disease or an unusual pest,
contact your county extension
office or the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, Division of Plant Industry,
helpline at 1-888-397-1517.
* Don't pack a pest. When
returning home to Florida from a
trip, don't bring plants, fruits, veg-
etables or illegal animals.
* Purchase only certified
plants from registered nurseries to
ensure they are free of pests and
diseases. Prevent the introduc-
tion and/or spread of unwanted
insects and diseases specifically
involving firewood by following
these simple recommendations:


* Use sources of firewood that
are local (within 50 miles) to the
area of your campground.
* Do not move firewood from
one part of Florida to another.
* Burn all firewood (local or
out-of-state firewood) before
leaving your campground.
* If you are unable to burn
all the firewood due to weather,
fire ban or other reasons, and
you either live in the same, area
of the state (within 50 miles) as
the campground, or are visiting
from out of state, please take the
firewood home. However, if you
live in another area of Florida,
please leave the firewood at your
campground. This will help pre-
vent the movement of pests and
diseases from one part of Florida
to another.

Florida's wildlife stands at the
forefront of the battle against the
effects of climate change. But
they don't stand alone. The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and other
state and federal agencies and en-
vironmental groups are bracing
to fight for their protection, man-
agement and adaptation.
Florida's Wildlife: On the
Frontline of Climate Change, a
summit hosted by the FWC, will
highlight the challenges facing
wildlife managers, governments,
industry leaders and the public in
the next 50 years in the struggle
with climate change. On Aug.
20-22, experts from the FWC and
other state and federal agencies
will converge in Orlando at the
Rosen PLAZA to discuss the pre-
dicted consequences of climate
change on wildlife, while seeking
answers on how to manage and
conserve Florida's wildlife and
habitats wisely.
"This summit has global sig-
nificance, because the effects of
climate change on places like
Florida and Alaska will be a pre-
lude to what's going to happen
elsewhere in the world," said
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto.
One of the keynote speak-
ers, Dr. Jean Brennan, a climate
change . scientist with Defend-
ers of Wildlife, was a member
of the U.S. Delegation at inter-
national negotiations under the
U.N. Framework Convention on
Climate Change. She also served
on the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) and
shares the Nobel Peace Prize
for 2007 for her contribution to


fit their individual needs.

(IPCC). Brennan acknowledges
that Florida's wildlife and habitats
are in a sensitive position when
it comes to the effects of climate
change.
"Florida is extremely vulner-
able with its low elevation," Dr.
Brennan said. "And it's the hard-
est hit with extreme weather such
as hurricanes. The Arctic is seeing
greater temperature changes, but
the biological diversity of plants
and animals in Florida forces the
question: What are you losing?"
The summit will feature pre-
sentations and workshops to
stimulate discussion and offer
solutions to the complexities of a
state growing rapidly in an envi-
ronment changing just as quickly.
On Wednesday, Aug. 20, Dr.
Virginia R. Van Sickle-Burkett
from the United States Geologi-
cal Survey (USGS) will present
reports from the Intergovernmen-
tal Panel on Climate Change. Dr.
Thomas Crisman, from the Uni-
versity of South Florida, will pres-
ent a report on the anticipated
changes in Florida because of cli-
mate change. Dr. Thomas Eason
will present the FWC's report on
Florida's wildlife and its changing
habitats.
A panel discussion in the af-
ternoon will feature specific spe-
cies on the frontline of. climate
change, including marine, ter-
restrial and exotic species. The
future of agriculture also will be
on the agenda.
The first day will conclude with
a panel discussion on habitat and
species management, outdoor
recreation, initiatives from the
conservation community, legisla-

Mahoney Helps Florida Tomato Growers


Calls for Hearings to
Reform Food Safety
System

Following the Food and Drug
Administration's (FDA) an-
nouncement that tomatoes were
not the likely source of a recent
salmonella outbreak, Congress-
man Tim Mahoney (FL-16) has
introduced a bill, H.R. 6581, to
compensate tomato growers and
packers nationwide for their loss-


es due to the salmonella scare,
which according to the Florida
Tomato Exchange's estimates
could be close to $100 million.
Congressman Mahoney, who
is Florida's only representative on
the House Agriculture Commit-
tee, also called on the Commit-
tee to hold field hearings in his
district to examine what reforms
are needed to ensure food safety.
The Agriculture Committee plans
to schedule a hearing in mid-Sep-
tember.
"The FDA's warnings about


tomatoes devastated the $1.3
billion tomato industry. Due to
the timing of the salmonella out-
break, Florida was hit hard. We
need to ensure that all impacted
tomato growers and packers are
compensated for their losses to
protect domestic food produc-
tion," said Congressman Ma-
honey. "With unfortunate events
like this, Americans are becom-
ing aware that food safety and na-
tional security are synonymous.
We clearly need to examine and
overhaul our food safety system


to ensure that the food we grow
and import is safe."
In April, the FDA issued a
nationwide warning that toma-
toes were a possible source of a
salmonella outbreak that made
1,220 people ill in 42 states, the
District of Columbia and Canada.
After a long investigation, the FDA
recently determined that fresh to-
matoes now available in the do-
mestic market are not associated
with the current outbreak and the
agency has rescinded its warning
against eating certain types of red


raw tomatoes.
The Mahoney Bill, which is also
cosponsored by U.S. Representa-
tives Allen Boyd, Adam Putnam,
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and
Vern Buchanan, directs the Sec-
retary of Agriculture to make pay-
ments to tomato growers and first
handlers that were unable to mar-
ket tomato crops as a result of the
Food and Drug Administration's
Public Health Advisory issued in
June 2008 due to the salmonella
outbreak. The U.S. Department of
Agriculture will be responsible for


issuing regulations and determin-
ing eligibility for compensation,
as they have in other disaster pro-
grams..
"The tomato industry in
our state has unfairly suffered
enough," Rep. Wasserman
Schultz (FL-20) said. "The FDA
must reform their trace-back pro-
grams so that growers and con-
sumers do not have to go through
the same nightmare during future
outbreaks."


A long time city



employee retires


' Lonnie Sampson, Jr. retired
from the city of Moore Haven on
June 30, 2008, after 35 years of
service.
Lonnie first started working for
the city in 1972.
. Throughout his working career
Lonnie worked in different aspects
for the City.
He helped set the blocks to
build the city's firehouse. He
helped put in many of the, water
lines in the city.
He worked on the mowing
crew and later was moved to the
physical environment crew, where
he later became the driver.
At the time of his retirement,
Lonnie was the Physical Environ-
ment Supervisor.
In his years, many employ-
ees came and went from the city


warehouse, including seven dif-
ferent Public Works Directors.
Lonnie was honored with a
party at Sonny's Barbeque.
Mayor Bret Whidden presented
Lonnie with an 8 x 10 plaque and
an engraved men's Fossil watch.
Mayor Whidden stated "Lonnie
is the type of employee that any
employer would want to work for
them. He was never late or missed
work and was truly dedicated to
the job."
Most people who know Lon-
nie have fond memories of work-
ing with him and are quick to tell
you a story about a past experi-
ence with him.
"Lonnie will be sorely missed
and a hard man to replace" said
Mike Jones, Public Works Director
for the City.

someone who is sincerely inter-
ested in the needs of such a small
district. He mentioned that offi-
cials have talked and pleaded with
state government, but all they get
are polite nods.
"Our overhead is eating us
alive," Mike Pressley said.
John Ahern, Moore Haven city
council member, explained that
the enlargement of water systems
for the prisons and city services
has met with many funding disap-
pointments, and expansion is a
necessity.
"People don't understand how
tough it is here," said Mr. Ahern.
Commissioner Donna Storter
Long introduced the prospects of


opening gambling options within
the county as a source of revenue
that will not pollute the environ-
ment. She commented that Bro-
ward and Miami Dade Counties
already do this. She added that
gambling facilities are established
on the Brighton Reservation, and
it may be feasible for Governor
Crist to help with this issue since
he is an advocate for gambling in
Florida. Ms. Long asked if OTTED
could fund the promotion for vot-
ers' support.
Property appraiser, Larry Luck-
ey, Sr., reported on Amendment 4
which is among nine amendments
to be decided in the general elec-
tion Nov. 4. Apparently, passage of
Amendment 4 could further harm
the ad valorem tax revenues that
fund services for the county.
According to Mr. Luckey, the
proposal allows for property


tax exemption for perpetually
preserved land, and land that is
encumbered with perpetual con-
servation easements. Considering
the amount of land owned by the
state in Glades County, it is pos-
sible that the tax base may be fur-
ther reduced.
Mary Helen Blakeslee, OTTED/
REDI, announced the construc-
tion of a web site whereby local
residents and officials can com-
municate with her agency and
post questions and comments.
The site is scheduled to be online
by August 25. The address will be
announced later.

Carpentry & Roofing, Inc. will
have floor plans for the spec
homes he's planning to build at
Ranch Lake Estates, starting at
$119,000.
Folks interested in purchasing
a home will have the opportunity
to speak with representatives of
area banks concerning their fi-
nancing options, and SHIP coor-
dinator Villafuerte will take appli-

The SHIP program provides
$30,000 for down payment assis-
tance for new construction and
$8200 for impact fees, for a total
of $38,200 for those who meet
the income guidelines for the pro-
gram, which for a single person
is capped at $37,080 but up to
$52,920 for a family of four.
For those who don't qualify for
SHIP, both Old Cypress Commu-
nity Bank and First Bank are qual-
ifying new homeowners through
USDA, Fannie Mae and other pro-
grams, some of which offer 100
percent financing for those who
qualify.
Anyone interested in more

The Stitt Family: Building a Ranch in Clewiston, Florida


This is Part One of a Two-
Part Series on the Stitt Family.
The second part will be fea-
tured in next week's edition
of The Glades County Demo-
crat.
"Husbandry is the care of ani-
mals," said John Stitt, sitting at
the antique lawyer's desk in his
WWII Quonset hut office. This is
what his family has been doing
since his father, an aeronautical
engineer for Pan American World
Airways moved to Clewiston-in
1950.
William T. "WT" Stitt was
born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1910,
graduating with a Masters Degree
in Mechanical Engineering from
Texas Tech and a Masters Degree
in Aeronautical Engineering from
New York University. He met his
wife, Christova Sawyer at Texas
Tech, who was born into a family
of Brownfield, Texas ranchers. In
a major career change after World
War II, W. T. Stitt packed up his
wife and two children, John and
Elizabeth, to start his own cattle
ranch in Clewiston.
Living close to the land and its
creatures was a different way of
life for the children than growing
up in Miami Springs in the 1950s.
Elizabeth headed off to Florida
State University the year the fam-
ily moved then earned a Masters
Degree from the University of
Florida. John attended Robert E.
Lee Junior High School in Miami,
graduated from Clewiston High
School and continued his educa-


tion in animal husbandry at the
University of Florida and Texas
A&M.
He returned home in 1960. Ed-
ucation was an important factor
in the Stitts' lives with Christova
setting the standard; she attained
a Masters Degree in Textiles and
Home Economics from Colum-
bia University. However, building
a ranch was important to each
member of the family.
Like other adventurers who
came before the Stitts', building
a ranch on almost two thousand
acres of Native Florida prairie
in the middle of nowhere was
a physical, mental and financial
challenge.
In the 1920s before the town of
"Clewiston" existed, three deter-
mined families, the H.C. Avants',
J.W Padgetts' and two Japanese
families, the Tokiedas' and Wa-
tenabes' established a fishing
and farming community on the
wooded custard-tree lined ridge
of sandy beach on the southwest
shore of Lake Okeechobee, ap-
propriately called "Sand Point."
Just as the Stitts', the early settlers
were determined to tame the vast
open spaces and harvest the fruits
of the land.
It wasn't until Alonzo C. Clew-
is, President of the Exchange
National Bank of Tampa bought
land west of Moore Haven, hired a
planner, and laid out the town that
"Clewiston" came into being.

Company of Chicago, discovered
how well sugar cane was adapted
to the soil around Clewiston, he
turned his attention from manu-
facturing wallboard from bagasse
(the residue of sugar cane after
pressing) and concentrated on
growing cane. In 1931, Dahl-
berg's successful
Southern Sugar Corporation
was reorganized as U.S. Sugar
when multimillionaire Vice Presi-
dent of General Motors, Charles
Steward Mott and his family
bought 68% of its assets. With the
growth of the sugar cane industry,
Clewiston was recognized as "The
Sweetest Town in America."
Throughout Florida's 1900's
"boom days," the thrill of the wild
continued to attract adventurers
from all walks of life seeking to
mold and coax the land into turn-
ing its rich assets into financial op7
portunities and provide the gift of
freedom from crowded cities.
Land in central Florida was
cheap and offered the opportunity
for those who could endure Na-
ture's fickle catastrophes, to cre-
ate a new life.
A man called "The Cattle King
of South Florida," Francis Asbury
Hendry, after serving in the Con-
federate Army during the Civil
War, moved his family to the Ca-
loosahatchee River Valley and
raised cattle for sale to Cuba. He
planted better grass, mixed pure-
bred cows with his cattle, expand-
ing the herd to more than 50,000.

Hendry planned and named
the town of LaBelle after his
daughters, Laura and Belle, then
in 1923 the State Legislature
named the County after him in his
honor.
East of the Calhoosahatchee
River, "there was nothing, even
up to the early 50s. You had to cut
your way through the countryside
and wade through the marshy
wetlands. Although Hamilton Dis-
ston initiated a project in the 1800s
to reclaim the swamp through a
series of dredged canals, it was
never completed as far as Clewis-
ton.
It took a steam barge off Lake
Okeechobee to dig out the canal
in front of our property, and it
took more than a dozen years to
improve the land. In the 1920s,
the Florida legislature put in place
State Statute '298 Drainage Dis-
trict' that allowed land owners to
set up their own
drainage district and collect
State taxes," Stitt explained, who
has served as a local board mem-
ber for many years. The Statute
existed long before the formation
of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
John's father, who brought
his own satchel of dreams to the
wilderness, was a determined
individual, An engineer for Pan
American World Airways before
World War II, WT. Stitt delivered
the company's first pressurized
aircraft engineered at Boeing in


Seattle to Dinner Key in Miami, as
the industry was in the process of
converting "flying boats" to land
planes scheduled to depart from
the newly established Miami In-
ternational Airport.
"My father enjoyed the devel-
opmental stage of aeronautics
that moved from unpressurized or
open cockpits to pressured cab-
ins. But five years after the war,
he no longer enjoyed working for
Pan Am as he wanted to fulfill his
long time wish to become self-
employed. John Stitt said the story
of the ranch is about his father's
effort and persistence to build a
life in cattle just as he had built a
life in aviation in the 40s.
Although financiers continued
to be attracted to Florida for entre-
preneur opportunities, ranchers
since the 1920s had already estab-
lished deep roots in the Clewiston
area.
In the mid 1970s, pioneer cattle
rancher, D.R. Kilpatrick developed
a little community near the Stitt
ranched called "Flaghole" where
houses and land are now valued
into the six figures.
Throughout the 40s before
fence laws were passed in Florida,
cattle roamed across wide-open
spaces. During the once a year
round up for inoculations, thou-
sands of cattle were hunted out of
the swamps and across the prai-
rie, sorted out by local ranchers'
brands in preparation for market-
ing.


When the tick epidemic spread
through the herds, fences went up
to prevent wildlife from contami-
nating cattle. In southern Hen-
dry County, a long "deer fence"
was built into the Everglades, a
reminder today of the battle to
eliminate the pesky varmint.
When W T. found the Clewis-
ton land, he made his first living
quarters in the small Quonset hut
that is now John Stitt's office.
Christova, who was happily set-
tled into her life in Miami Springs,
followed her husband to Clewis-
ton with "a 'where thou goest'
attitude. But, she didn't take long
to establish her life in the country
and never regretted the move," re-
membered Sandy Stitt.
W. T. Stitt originally bought one
hundred head of "scrub" cattle,
the basis of his herd, improving
the breed over 40 years into Bran-
gus crosses. By the 1950s, Hendry
County was mostly ranch country
spreading east to Belle Glade.
Cattle were raised and grazed
until they fattened up to about
1,000 pounds then. they were
sent to the cattle auction in Belle
Glade. "There were few feedlots
in Florida at that time, most of
them wereJlocated in the Midwest
and later Texas," explained Stitt.
When WT. retired as the ranch
manager, John Stitt inherited the
cow-calf operation that his father
began.

Summer basketball camp in Clewiston


Lee: 'You prepare to
win in the offseason'

By Naji Tobias
IN1 Florida
CLEWISTON - The high
school's basketball program may
have just gotten stronger, courtesy
of a summer camp.
Hosted by Willie Lee, the
Clewiston Tigers boys basketball
head coach, the 20th annual bas-
ketball camp was held from June
9 to July 26.
The camp was made avail-
able to all of Clewiston's current
and prospective basketball play-
ers, with a few pleasant surprises
along the way.
From June 19-20, the partici-
pants took part in an offensive
skills camp at the University of
Miami.
Lee said that the players took
advantage of the two-day camp
by utilizing the principles that are
essential to becoming successful
on the court.
Those aspects include re-
bounding, shot selection, mental
and physical training, transition,
the ability to reduce turnovers on
offense, and most of all, team-
work.


"The top assistant coaches
from Miami were very impressed
with our kids throughout the
camp," Lee said. "It basically re-
emphasized fundamentals that
they're already learning."
Not only did the Tigers go to a
camp in Miami, but some of the
former players came out and as-
sisted Lee.
Among Lee's former players
who helped out were the likes of
Reggie Gray, Johnny Jones, who
will be going into his sophomore
year at Marshall University and
Andre Williams, who's headed
for junior college in Delta, Miss.
"I used the former players as
a role model to let the kids know
what it takes to get to college,"
Lee said. "Most importantly, they
led the kids by example on and
off the court."
Though offense is paramount
to the success of a team and it's
players, Lee and his former play-
ers made it a point to emphasize
the importance of commitment
to defense.
They know that in order to
win games, attention to detail on
the defensive front must be ex-
ecuted.
A few things that all the play-
ers are expected to exhibit are the
ability to create turnovers, grab


rebounds and the desire to either
play man-to-man or zone cover-
age on defense, to name just a
few.
It doesn't take long for every-
one to get with the program sim-
ply out of the team's desire to win
basketball games.
"You prepare to win in the off-
season," Lee said.
The 2008-2009 basketball sea-
son, which begins in November,
should turn out to better than last
year's less than impressive sea-
son.
For one thing, the Tigers want
to avenge losses to Glades Day
and Pahokee - they lost twice to
both teams.
Most importantly, Clewiston
wants to have a chance to com-
pete in the Class 4A basketball
tournament, which didn't happen
due to not qualifying as one of the
top two teams in their district last
year.
. The team will likely be made
up of underclassmen, which
include upcoming juniors Dem-
etrius Allen, Timothy Jackson and
Hurley Johnson.
Top newcomers will feature
Trevor Jackson, Ravin Lee and
Derrious Reed.
But for this season, the top
two athletes may end up being

the upcoming senior twins, John
and Jonathan Williams.
Both are expected to provide
the leadership for the program
and could be the faces of the
team.
"The kids just came out to


the camp this summer and had a
great time," Lee said. "They love
basketball, so it helped them play
together as team.
"We're looking forward to
our upcoming basketball season,
which I think will be a great suc-


cess," Lee said optimistically.
The summer camp was held
at the Clewiston High School in-
door basketball court.

New fishing rules in effect



for Lake Okeechobee


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminds the public about
new Lake Okeechobee freshwa-
ter fishing rules. The rules went
into effect on July 1.
Largemouth bass in Lake
Okeechobee must be 18 inches
or greater in total length to be
harvested. Anglers can keep only
one bass. 22 inches or greater in
total length as part of their daily


bag limit. Also, a new rule estab-
lishes a 10-inch minimum length
for black crappie on the lake. Bag
limits remain unchanged.
Sampling over the last few
years has shown a decline in the
numbers of small largemouth
bass and black crappie.
"The new size limits protect
younger largemouth bass and
black crappie from being harvest-
ed," said Jon Fury, FWC freshwa-


ter fisheries biologist. "The new
rules also reduce pressure on the
current populations."
The Commission approved
the new rules in February, after
several public workshops.
Violating fish and wildlife
rules is illegal. To report viola-
tions, please call the Wildlife
Alert Hotline at 1-888-404-FWCC
(3922).

season.

Everyone in God's church is a Saint


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The book of Ephesians opens
with these words "Paul, an apos-
tle Of Jesus Christ by the will of
God, to all the SAINTS which are
at Ephesus, and to the faithful in
Christ Jesus" (vs. 1).
Jude refers to the Christians as
"saints" when he wrote his well-
known, third verse, "Beloved,
when I give all diligence to write
unto you of the common salva-
tion, it was needful for me to write
-unto you, and exhort you that he
should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered
unto the SAINTS."
It is clear from reading the
New Testament that Christians
are saints.
But, as has been true of so
many other matters related to
Christianity, religion has confused
the minds of many concerning
the exact bearing and application
of the word "saint."
Catholics give that term to cer-
tain famous ones, after they are
dead.
As in the baseball world, cer-
tain ones are voted into the Hall of
Fame" after their playing days are
ended, so have Catholics through
the centuries canonized certain


ones as saints years after they ter-
minated their earthly works.
Those referred to as "saints" in
the New Testament were, in con-
trast to the Catholic practice, yet
living in the flesh, and the term
applied to each Christian - not a
mere few.
Proof: Paul commanded the
Roman brethren to distribute to
the necessity of the saints (Ro-
mans 12:13) - these were poverty-
stricken Christians; Paul instruct-
ed the Corinthian members to
settle their differences before the
saints and not before governmen-
tal tribunals (I Cor. 6:1) - before
the members of the church; Phi-
lippians 4:22 says, "All the saints
salute you, chiefly they that are of
Caesar's household" - people liv-
ing on earth.
It is not uncommon to hear
people refer to "St. Matthew" or
"St. Peter" or "St. John" or "St.
Paul."
Yes, these were all saints, but
so were Aquila and Priscilla and
Dorcas and Apollos and Onesi-
phorus and Rhoda and Epaphras,
and so are those who are in the
congregation of our day.
Many of our words come to us
in families.
For instance "sing" is the act;
"singer" is the one performing
the act; "songs" are what we


sing; "singspiration" is a service
of singing.
In the same way, the Greek
language had a family of words
which will help us understand
what "saint" means.
"Hagioi" is the noun "saints";
Hhegios" is the adjective "holy";
"Hagiasmos" is the noun "holi-
ness"; and "hagiadzo" is the verb
"hallow" or "sanctify."
From this study, it can be seen
that a saint is one who is holy or
set apart to God.
Some of the,so-called Holiness
groups have been taught that
a Christian can be so holy as to
need no mercy from God, he be-
ing able to live so holy that he has
no need of God's forgiveness.
This position is mostly based
upon a misinterpretation of cer-
tain verses in I John, which may
sound like teaching the possibility
of sinless-perfection, but which
when taken with other passages
in I John - such as I John 1:8, 10
and I John 2:1-2 - boil down to
mean that a Christian does no fol-
low the life of sin - in fact is very
much involved in being one of
God's saints or God's holy ones.
But, even after we do all that
the Lord commands, we are still
to say, "We are unprofitable ser-
vants" (Luke 17:10); we are still
to say, "Father, have mercy upon


To be sanctified or a saint in-
volves two things: 1. being set
apart from sin, and 2. being set
apart to God.
There are many passages that
teach these two sides of being
saints of God.
Here are a few of them: "De-
nying ungodliness and worldly
lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly" (Titus
2:12); "Reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God" (Romans 6:13);
"Abhor that which is evil; cleave
to that which is good" (Romans
12:9), and "Present your bodies
a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God...Be not conformed to
this world" (Romans 12:1-2).
One becomes "sanctified" or
a "saint" when he: 1.Hears the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Romans
10:17) 2. Believes the Gospel.
(Mark 16:15-16) 3.Repents of Sin.
(Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30-31). 4. Con-
fesses faith in Christ. (Acts 8:37;
Romans 10:9-10). 4.Submits to be
baptized (immersed) in water for
the remission sins to receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38,
8:36-39; Romans 6:3-5).
Such an one becomes a Chris-
tian and is added to the Lord's
Church. (Acts 2:41, 47).

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeechobee.
"This effort is an example of
how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,
Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large, well-
drained agricultural site to a thriv-
ing tract of Everglades wetlands."
The restoration project in-


cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create
historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus re-
moval.
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and
phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the
local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-


ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-
ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is
to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-

How people come to Christ


By Brian Hamrick, pastor
First Baptist Church,
Clewiston
I appreciate Pastor Jackie
Miller in a number of ways as a
man of great Christian convic-
tion, and also of his utilization of
church history to make his point
in his article last week, dealing
with Charles Finney and Christian
conversion.
I am confident Pastor Miller
would agree with me that every
Christian should be familiar with
Charles Finney, his methods, and
impact, not only on church his-
tory, but American history.
Pastor Miller's article has
prompted me, to put forth anoth-
er explanation for understanding
Christian conversion.
Quoting Mr. Finney, he wrote,
"There is the anxious seat, come
out and avow your determination
to be on the Lord's side... It (Bap-
tism) held the precise place that
the anxious seat does now, as a
public manifestation of their de-
termination to be Christian."
Pastor Miller went on to quote
opponents of the anxious seat as
having to substitute for it, accord-
ing to Finney, or else revival could
not occur.


Neither Pastor Miller nor Mr.
Finney explained why this was
necessary. Professor Dod of
Princeton commented on Finney
substituting the anxious seat for
baptism by saying, "Though he
supposes that the anxious seat
occupies 'the precise place' that
baptism did, we can by no means
consent to receive it as an equiva-
lent.
Baptism was, indeed, a test
of character, since obedience or
disobedience was exercised in
view of a divine command; but
the anxious seat cannot operate
thus, except by arrogating to itself
a similar authority."
Here's where I am with this.
Open the Bible.
Turn to Acts 2.
Peter preaches the Pentecost
sermon about the Lordship of the
crucified Jesus.
God convicts people's hearts.-
in fact, the text says they were cut
to the heart.
Then they ask, "What must
we do?" And Peter says, "Repent
and be baptized."
Do we really need to add to
the Biblical example of evange-
lism for the conversion of men?
I greatly appreciate Finney's
(and Miller's) desire to have peo-


pie express faith publicly.
Amen, and amen.
You will not find me espousing
any "secret Christian" philosophy-
the Christian life is thoroughly
public. The question is, how must
we apply it?
How was it applied in the
Word of God?
The words "anxious seat"
don't even appear in Scripture-
which requires us to be careful of
whether or not we should accept
such methodology.
We must beware the danger
of hastily pronouncing someone
a Christian, which is where the
anxious seat often leads us.
The great evangelist George
Whitefield explained, "I am glad
you know when persons are justi-
fied. It is a lesson I have not yet
learnt. There are so many stony
ground hearers, that receive the
Word with joy, that I have deter-
mined to suspend my judgments
till I know the tree by its fruits... I
cannot believe they are converts
till I see fruit brought forth. It will
do converts ,no harm to keep
them a little back; it will never do
a sincere soul any harm."
Finally, of a historical note:
somehow, the church has thrived,
spread, and communicated the


Gospel for over 1,800 years before
Mr. Finney began his works.
How ever did people become
Christians without the anxious
seat?
How did the First Great Awak-
ening ever happen a century ear-
lier? It's because the Christian's
evangelism is much simpler than
adding in a "come to the front" as
though it is necessary for conver-
sion.
Our message is unchanged:
preach the Gospel.
If we preach the Gospel, the
Holy Spirit will work in people's
hearts, and some will be saved.
It may not be as fast as we
like.
We might not win the entire
world for Christ. We might not
see our country re-Christianized.
But we must preach the Gos-
pel, and we must make sure our
methodology is simple and re-
duces possibilities of confusion.
Fellow Christians, join with me
in preaching the Gospel and in
praying for the souls of our city.
Clewiston needs true spiritual
revival more than anything else.
Woe to us if we do not preach the
Gospel!


Damocles; It is a hanging sword


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. d. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
"There's something hanging
over our heads!" Yes, with the
announcement of the sale of the
sugar company, many people are
worried about what may be hang-
ing over them. There is a legend
from antiquity about "the Sword
of Damocles."
He was a person who sought
favor with the rich and powerful
in the 4th century BC. One day
he was invited to sit in the place
of the ruler at a feast, Dionysius
II was usually the high table and
Damocles gloated in the luxuri-
ous food and service until he
looked up. There, over his head
and hanging by a single horse-
hair, was a word. He lost his ap-
petite and quickly left the table.
The "sword" hangs over many.
For Damocles, a change in loca-
tion brought relief. For many, the
change is not as easy.
Sometimes it is knowing about
a disease "in remission," for oth-
ers it is the knowledge that lay-
offs are likely to come, for others
the realization that a family may
be breaking up. Things seem to
go along well and suddenly..! In
my career, I've had many people
come and tell me "Ain't it awful!"'
And I can usually agree. Then, I
ask if there were any signs along
the way that might have foreshad-
owed what was coming. Some-
times, thinking back, I have heard
"Well, there was the time when..."
or "Now that you mention it, I re-


member..." I make a mental note
about early intervention, before
the crisis hits and the sword falls.
I remember visiting a woman in
a cottage on a river at the end of
a country road; well-manicured
grounds, a three-car garage and
ship, everything inside new and
spotless in the best of condition
and with the latest of appliances;
but there was a "For Sale" sign in
the front yard.
I asked "Do you mind my ask-
ing why you're wanting to sell
this place?" It certainly seemed
to be an idyllic setting for me, or
so I thought. She answered "Yes,
it took 45 minutes to get an am-
bulance for my husband." That
was a sufficient sign of a sword
hanging over the head of anybody
who lived there, and it caused me
to change my mind about some-
thing that seemed so perfect. The
sugar company sale has some
"unknowns" yet to be resolved.
The likelihood is that there will
be some time before the impact
comes home, as well it may be
anticipated. Swords hanging over
people's heads are not new.
Some of the best advice about
what to do when things are in
doubt and the possibility of major
changes at any moment looms,
comes from St. Paul. The early
Church was persecuted and con-
tinually attacked; the faithful lived
with many swords hanging over
them. Paul wrote to the Ephe-
sians "Look carefully, then, how
you walk, not as unwise men
but as wise, making the most of
time, because the days are evil


(Ephesians 5:15-16." Whatever
time there was before their world
came crashing down on the faith-
ful was to be "redeemed," used to
strengthen fellowship, to grow in
depth, to develop the skills need-
ed to survive, to plan for the future
and then build on those plans.
The tent maker became an
evangelist, but he had a skill to ap-
ply should the need arise. Once,
I went from a very large church
to a small mission that had only
recently come into existence.
Suddenly, I had much more time
than before, and I asked one of
my senior clergy neighbors how
best to use it. He advised me to
"do something that I had wanted
to do or dreamed about doing,
because the next call will be to a
larger, busier church."
I spent my nights in school
working on a graduate degree
while there; there was nothing
on television really worth watch-
ing anyway. It meant some travel
hours, studying for tests and read-
ing in spare moments, writing pa-
pers late in the evening and giving
up leisure time by getting ready
for tests. What I gathered up
opened doors to ministries and
opportunities that were special-
ized, and the chance to minister
in new and more helpful ways. It
opened the paths to further train-
ing opportunities and a fascinat-
ing and exciting career.
The swords hanging over the
life and ministry were there from
time to time, but there were al-
ways new places to explore and
new opportunities available. The


signs had been read and the time
had been redeemed. Paul's mes-
sage to "get busy' seems to have a
place with us today. It has carried
others and myself through in the
past; it will carry us all through in
the days to come.

Perceived perceptions


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I believe we human beings
have a perception problem.
We often think we have the
proper perspective on an issue
when in fact we are way off.
There's a story that Thomas
Wheeler, one time CEO of the
Massachusetts Mutual Life Insur-
ance Company, tells on himself:
He and his wife were driving
along an interstate highway when
he noticed that their car was low
on gas.
Wheeler got off the highway
at the next exit and soon found a
rundown gas station with just one
gas pump.
He asked the lone attendant
to fill the tank and check the oil,
then went for a little walk around
the station to stretch his legs.
As he was returning to the car,
he noticed that the attendant and
his wife were engaged in an ani-
mated conversation.
The conversation stopped as
he paid the attendant.
But as he was getting back


into the car, he saw the attendant
wave and heard him say, "It was
great talking to you."
As they drove out of the sta-
tion, Wheeler asked his wife if
she knew the man.
She readily admitted she did.
They had gone to high school
together and had dated steadily
for about a year.
"Boy, were you lucky that I
came along," bragged Wheeler.
"If you had married him, you'd be
the wife of a gas station attendant
instead of the wife of a chief ex-
ecutive officer."
"My dear," replied his wife, "if
I had married him, he'd be the
chief executive officer and you'd
be the gas station attendant."
'We often think we have the
proper perspective on an issue
when in fact we are way off.
Jesus understood this pro-
pensity for us humans to get it
wrong.
Especially when it comes to
things spiritual.
So he told a few parables. He
said the kingdom of heaven is like
a small seed.

palm of your hand.
Yet it grows into a very
bush.
Large enough for birds t(
their nest among its branch
Why did Jesus choose
a small item to represent
thing so large as heaven?
He did this because

when placed in the Master's hand.
That's the proper perspective.

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeechobee.
"This effort is an example of
how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,


Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large, well-
drained agricultural site to a thriv-
ing tract of Everglades wetlands."
The restoration project in-
cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create
historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus re-
moval.
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and


phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the
local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-
ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-


ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is
to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-
ing and distribution of water to
the natural system.

garding the Northern Everglades
and Estuaries Protection Program,
