Land use ordinance,
proposed millage
rate

by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- On July
28, county commissioners ex-
amined several agenda issues
during a regular meeting.
Dale Milita, county lobby-
ist, explained further updates
on the Pearce Canal cleaning
project. He explained the initial


$250,000 is a legislative appro-
priation that was official at the
end of June. It is a Department
of Environmental Protection
grant whereby permitting was
waived; however the application
process is still a requirement.
"We are doing everything that
we can," said Dale Milita.
He reported that the county is
on schedule and the application
is in review. It may be early Oc-
tober before the funds are avail-
able. When the review process
is finished a Request for Quali-
fications (RFQ) will be sent out
immediately by the county to


procure engineers and construc-
tion contractors. Tracy Whirls,
economic development director,
reminded the board it may give
the Moore Haven Canal cleanup
process a head start if its permit-
ting was begun soon.
The city of Moore Haven re-
quested that its cost for landfill
disposal of household waste
should be $28.65 per ton, which
is three percent higher than
the paid rate of $27.82 per ton
for Waste Management to haul
waste to the transfer station.
The public pays $50 per ton.

The rugged 1800's "Cow Hunter"


By Nancy Dale

The fourth Saturday in July
was proclaimed by President
George Bush as National Day
of the Cowboy. Sponsored
by Downtown Mainstreet,
Okeechobee paid homage to a
living heritage of pioneer "cow
hunters" in the 1800's who
hunkered down in covered
wagons with their families and
traveled hundreds of miles with
their cattle to carve a new life
on the Florida prairies around
Lake Okeechobee that gave
birth to the cattle industry.
Re-enacting those days on
July 26, with a kick-off cattle
drive led by Sheriff Paul Mays'


"Mounted Posse" and headed
by Trail Boss, Haynes Williams,
Okeechobee rancher for 80
years, a parade of horses, wag-
ons and ranchers weaved their
way over three miles to the
Agriculture Center where the
ranch rodeo took place. Trail
riders included Richard Bow-
ers, President of the Florida
Seminole Tribe, Mitchell Cy-
press, Chairman, and Moses
Jumper. Bo Hobby, President
of the Florida Cattleman's Asso-
ciation, Okeechobee Livestock
Market owner, Pete Clemons
and Democratic Congress-
man Tim Mahoney also led the
way, followed by the old 1800's
chuck wagon, buckboards,


high school rodeo riders, and
youth associations from Glades/
Hendry/Okeechobee counties.
Surrounding the arena,
visitors from as far away as
the east and west coast, had
the chance to experience the
ranching culture through a va-
riety of exhibits. There were
whip cracking demonstrations,
Florida ranch-style furnishings
from Okeechobee's Western
Living D6cor, as well as other
hand-made local items to pur-
chase from a variety of talented
craftsman. Cowboy artists and
authors were also on hand to
talk to visitors about their range
See Hunter Page 20


lic works director, reminded
the board that there has been a
history of mutual cooperation
between the city and the county.
The board granted the request
with a vote of four to one.
Countycommissioners agreed
to send a letter to Governor Char-
lie Crist referring to USSC lands
that will not become necessary
for Everglades restoration. In
the letter, the county asked that
all lands not needed should be
returned to agriculture; reason-
ing that it is not wise to become
dependent upon a large percent-
age of imported food.


"This area of Florida is a food
basket for the nation," the letter
stated.
TracyWhirls, economic devel-
opment director, presented the
second memorandum of agree-
ment (MOA) between Glades
County, and the governor's Of-
fice of Tourism Trade and Eco-
nomic Development (OTTED).
The MOA is a regional catalyst
project in cooperation with five
other counties that belong to
Florida Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative

on sugar


buyout
Researched by
Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences
by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES/HENDRY The an-
nouncement on June 24, that U.S.
.Sugar Cof!pralion (USSC'i would
sell their land and holdings to the -
state, was cheered by many who
love the unique and sensitive Ev-
erglades. Initially, it was reported
that 1,700 jobs could be lost. That
figure may seem low for millions
of Floridians who live in metro-
politan areas. However, residents
of Glades, Hendry and western
Palm Beach Counties knew in
their hearts that the loss could be
much greater.
A recent economic study, dated
July 23, was done by the Institute
of Food and Agriculture Sciences
(IFAS), which is a research center
with the University of Florida. The
potential outcome of the study
emphasizes the worst probable
outcome for south central Flor-
ida, and specifically for Glades
and Hendry Counties. According
to the report, IFAS uses the com-
plete loss of USSC holdings in its
statistics since it is unknown at
this time what will be dissolved
and what holdings will be re-
cycled such as citrus processing
and the railroad network. Many
ancillary businesses supply and
serve the largest sugar producing
company in the nation.

Or,.what is a flash
drive and why would
I ant one?

By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
We have all done it.
oj'are typing up a document
or l,'hg email, but you haven't
saved the file.
Suddenly, a momentary power
out or surge stops your PC cold.
And ... you discover all of your
carefully crafted and witty com-
position is GONE!
Hdre's where the flashfdrive, if
you use it, is valuable.
The flash drive (or you may
know it as a thumb drive) has
been available several years now
and is really handy for backing up
projects that are in process.
This is a very small disk, about
the size of your thumb, which
plugs into the USB port on your
computer.
It can be found at our local
drug store or at any big box store
where computer supplies are
sold, for about $30.
It is a device that works just
like the old four-inch floppy drive
but it holds a lot more data.


up your 4
When I compose text or even
when I'm working on graphics, I
usually have a flash drive plugged
into one of my USB ports so I can
periodically back up the piece I'm
working on to the flash drive.
I would never work on a large
project like a book or a big graph-
ic without backing up my work at
the end of each session.
I especially like the idea of be-
ing able to back up to a device that
is separate from the computer.
A bad lightening strike can fry
the power supply and anything
attached to the computer.
The computer hard drive isn't
infallible either.
Any day you could turn on
your computer and it may refuse
to boot and your screen will stay
dark.
Most computer techs will tell
you it isn't IF your hard drive will
fail, but WHEN.
So, be smart and back up your
data and pictures.
And, keep track of your soft-
ware disks because you never
know when you will have to re-
build your computer software.
Here is a rule of thumb for file
backup.
Back up current, on-going
projects to your flash drive.


data is important


The older files on the flash
drive can be deleted easily to
make room for new files.
It's also really portable.
Taking new pictures of the
grandkids to your friend's house
on a thumb drive is as easy as
sticking the tiny drive in your
pocket.
SBack up finished projects and
vacation/holiday photos to a CD.
That way the data is separate
from your machine and you can
reload the photos if you get a new
computer or the one you're using
fails.
After they are written to a CD
they can also be deleted from the
flash drive.
And here's the last bit of advice
for a flash drive. There is a recom-
mended way to unplug the thing.
This is a safe computing step.
In the lower right hand corner of
your computer, you will find a few
icons right next to the time of day.
Look for the icon called "Safely
Remove Hardware."
When it is time to remove your
flash drive from the USB port on
your computer, click on the Safely
Remove Hardware first.
The message will give you a
choice of several hardware de-
vices to remove.


On July 12, at 2 p.m. in Ra-
mona, Calif., Paula Swaford was
united in marriage to Terrence W.
Tkachuk of Palm Springs, Calif.
Paula, a registered nurse, was
a 30-year resident of Clewiston
and also a former columnist for
The Clewiston News and the
Belle Glade Sun, writing a health
information column for 5 years,
entitled "Health Line."
The former owner/operator of
Caring Companions, a sitter/com-
panion service, began working as
a travel nurse throughout Califor-
nia, Nevada and Arizona in 2003.
The wedding was a casual
affair held at the home of the
groom's brother, Peter Tkachuk,
in the San Diego Country Estates.


Officiating at the ceremony
was the groom's younger brother,
Perry Tkachuk.
The groom's entire family at-
tended the wedding.
A catered reception was held
following the ceremony.
Out of state visitors included Ve-
ronica and Justin Pike of Clewis-
ton, and Matt Swaford and Becky
Anderson from Castelberry, Fla.,
and John Click, former resident
of Glades County, now residing in
Johnson City, Tenn.
Terry and Paula will be honey-
mooning on a cruise to Cabo San
Lucas and Ensenada, Mexico in
September.

A A Messaefrom Sheriff Ronnie Lee;


Dear Friends,


In November 2004, the good people of Hendry County voted to make me their Sheriff again. They put their faith in me
to make Hendry County a safer, more wholesome community where they can live, work, play and raise their families.
I have worked very hard during this time to build and maintain good, working relationships with local, state and
federal law enforcement agencies so that we could benefit from theirexpertise. I created and continue to promote, an
"open door" policy, inviting the public to talk to me about what is important to them. In 20041 vowed, if elected, to
make certain changes dealing with drugs, chops shop, prostitution, jail and the safety of our children. I have worked
diligently to accomplish those changes, exceeding expectations. But my work, is not done. I need to continue the
progress that we have started and I need your help and your vote.

My strong educational background, 20 years of active and reserve military service and more than 37 years of law
enforcement experience at local, state and federal levels, have given me the solid foundation on which I have built
tremendous experience that I bring to this position. Soon I will have been your Sheriff for almost 8 years, I have the
experience and the know-how to serve you. No other candidate has these qualifications or experience. No other
candidate knows what Hendry County wants, expects and deserves from their Sheriff.

I know what you want in your Sheriff...you have told me and I have listened. I know it takes more than one person to
be successful; it takes many people who are willing to give time and commitment to their community. I have dedicated
my life and I am ready to continue the commitment. Please support your Sheriffby voting and Re-Electing me
to continue the job.

You will usually select the top
one.
You should then get a little
pop-up box that says it is safe to
remove the USB hardware.
The flash drive sometimes
needs a little time to complete
the copy function you have re-
quested.
This is the moment when all of
those digital Is and Os are record-
ed electronically to the micro-
scopic ram board (think brain) of
the USB thumb drive. .
Unplugging the drive when
it's working is similar to putting
a book away before a person is
done reading.
If you don't disengage your
flash drive in this manner, you run
the risk of scrambling the data you
have so carefully copied to it.
Yes, I've had scrambled data,
but now I always eject my flash
drive the correct way.
Happy computing.

Reflection: Biblical leader's choice


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
As I listen to news about elec-
tions and watch the different can-
didates make promises, I wonder
sometimes about the future and
what it will hold for us.
I've watched candidates
change their viewpoints as events
change and recall that in the past
some of them, once elected, did
things differently than they had
promised.
That may not always be a bad
thing; circumstances alter cases,
but I also value consistency and
like to feel I supported someone
who felt keeping their word was
important.
I'm also aware that in any job,
what it takes to get the job and
what it takes to do the job may be
two. different things. That applies
to elected jobs too.
I have shared with my clergy
friends that finding the best minis-
ter for a church is like doing cabi-
netmaking with a chain saw.
The best of processes is often
a rough fit; and what you see is
not always what you get.
At times, many of the things
that turn out to be important
are glossed over or completely


missed in a search process.
I wonder why we should ex-
pect it to be different in the politi-
cal arena.
How many times I have heard
in both churches and elected cir-
cles "We thought the last one was
bad, but..."
Every once and awhile some-
one is called to fill a job, not nec-
essarily a political office, but a job
where there is nobody else will-
ing to do it. That's something I've
seen in church and other organi-
zations, clubs, associations and
the like.
One of the organizations
awhile back asked me if I would
be involved in their direction.
The officer elected suddenly
was transferred and there was a
vacuum; would I do it?
I asked "Why me?" And the an-
swer was "You're always here."
I didn't regard that as a suf-
ficient qualification for leader-
ship, but there was a need and I
agreed.
We got through.
I was surrounded with people
who had filled different roles in
the organization for a long time
and shared with a good leadership
team; contributing where I could
and asking for help along the way
when I felt it was needed.
As I was reading the lessons


for services a few weeks ago, I
was struck by someone else in a
similar position. Solomon.
Solomon was to become King
of Israel. His father, David, was "a
hard act to follow."
Solomon was young, he was
inexperienced by his own admis-
sion. He recognized the great task
before him; to lead a people that
were not the easiest in the world
to lead, to bring to bear skills
and abilities that he realized he
lacked.
. He was someone who had
an abiding relationship with God
through all that had happened;
and God in turn asked Solomon
"How can I help."
Solomon's reply deserves
repeating; "Give therefore thy
servant an understanding mind
to govern thy people, that I may
discern between good and evil...
(1 Kings 3:9)."
Solomon recognizes the diffi-
cult task ahead of him; the verse
concludes "...for who is able
to govern this thy great people
ibidd)."`
The answer pleased God; he
was to get the wisdom needed
and God threw in all of the good
things he didn't ask for as well as
a bonus.
That's a good key to leader-
ship; seek to understand, to dis-


cern, to be wise. Also (and this
is a big one!) acknowledge your
weaknesses and provide for them,
asking God's help along the way.
Solomon faced the task ahead of
him with some humility.
That may not have gotten him
many votes, but there is some-
thing to be said for his stark hon-
esty.
An understanding mind comes
as a sign that one must have
an undying love for those to be
served; the more you understand,
the more you love and vice versa.
As I think back on some of the
times I spent being interviewed
for a new ministry or meeting a
committee to find a place, the
implicit question often was "Will
you love us? Will you take time to
know us? Will you share with us
and let us share with you?
"Will you have an understand-
ing mind and spirit? Will you do
your best to be wise in your of-
fice?"
That might be something to
see among those seeking spe-
cial jobs, and a part of a promise
sought as a new career begins or
an oath of office is given.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

Hendry County, Florida


CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!

I am Phillip Pelletier and I have been a Hendry,
County resident for 35 years. I have constantly
served the community those years by volunteering
my.time and leadership. To learn more about me,
please visit my website, www.pelletier4pa.com.

My current position as Director, Secretary and
Chief Financial Officer of Hendry-LaBelle
Recreation Board proves that I can manage the
office of Property Appraiser. I manage personnel,
including hiring, firing, discipline and rewards. I
prepare and manage the limited budget of the
Board by serving as general contractor for all
new projects and project manager for new parks and facilities built through local
and grant funding. The finances are audited by the State every year and no internal
exceptions have been made.

I have six years experience and education in the Property Appraiser's office as
commercial, agricultural and residential Appraiser. As Administrative Assistant, I
trained personnel in all appraisal areas. I earned the designation of Certified
Florida Evaluator from the Florida Department of Revenue, by successfully
completing the necessary courses with the International Association of Assessing
Officers.

The values of your homes and businesses should not be based on sales alone. My
extensive construction background will be utilized in determining accurate building
values and training the field appraisers to recognize the same attributes. You
know as well as I do that a new roof does not constitute a new home. A 20-year
old homq with a new roof still has 20-year old cabinets, plumbing, wiring and 20
years of depreciation.

I will not value your property based bn speculative sales. I will not "chase sales."
Values will be set by my office, not the Department of Revenue. The tax roll
must be certified and approved by the DOR based on the Property Appraiser's
valuation. I have proven that I can defend the tax roll values to the DOR by
explaining our local situations.

I believe that members of all our communities within the county should feel
equally important and fairly treated, and that each and every county governmental
agency should strive to work together for the good of the whole county. I can
help make these things happen with God's Grace and Your Vote.

discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!

Failed campaign promises
Well, guess I better look back at the campaign promises the in-
cumbent sheriff made in 2004. Sorry, he didn't keep them. No more
road patrols than there were before. But sure are a lot more "officers,"
especially sergeants. Notice the arrest reports in the Democrat? Lot of
probation violators found, not too much solving of local crime. Vic-
tims in Palmdale witnessed and followed a burglary perp and Glades
County didn't think there was probable cause enough to invite them-
selves in to look around. Got a nice new jail though. Thanks to Jim
Rider's foresight and efforts. Running that jail seems more important
than catching local criminals. Even getting the county to give them
some more beds and not make them pay taxes on a private facility!
Tell you what, one of the new candidates for sheriff actually looks the
part. And bet he won't fall asleep in meetings! Or warn his cronies that
FHP has got an airplane circling the "racing stripes" on 27!

Whats going on in that dump?
Can anyone honestly tell me what exactly IS going in at that dump?
I have followed semi trucks that sure smell like a garbage truck go into
the site. I have seen several tankers go in there and they weren't hual-
ing fuel. I look across the horison, ya know the one that borders the
levy, and see a mound of what appears to be more than construction
material waste.
Well, I don't keep up with the day to day business of the county
so I'm sure there is a logical reason for this. However, It was my im-
pression that this was strickly waste from construction that would not
contaminate an already contaminated major water source.
I'm sure that most of the citizens of this county have heard the
same thing. I do know that this was just a big money making scheme
for someone at the cost of the glades county motto. You know the one
regarding Glades as being glorious.
I'm not disgruntled yet. I just want to know if anyone knows what
is going on there before I get my answer from the EPA.

New Church
Well, has anyone wondered what JJ Wiggins is building? I got re-
ally excited thinking that maybe the board had an epiphany and de-
cided to build something for the "youth!" Yeah, right! Apparently the
board wouldn't know an epiphany if it slapped them. I don't know,
maybe if the epiphany was trying to get into their cash filled pockets.
Anyway, no, JJ Wiggins hasn't seen fit to build a pool, tennis courts, or
some other youth endeavored facility. We are now building a church!
Wow, a church!!! Hmm... was this what Mr. Wiggins saw when leav-
ing this huge amount of money for the youth? I don't know. Perhaps,
the ones in charge know more than most. I'm not anti-church, I'm just
wondering what connection a new church would have with JJ Wig-
gins Memorial Youth! Just thought it was interesting.

Emerald Pond, same as Waldon Pond South


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the Glades County
Democrat

I'd been standing at the kitch-
en window looking out over the
pond with the feeling that we'd
never see the water lapping
around the edges again.
In the past four years there
was a major hurricane in two
of those years, followed by two
years of drought...the most severe
in a century. During those two
years of practically no rain, the
pond water dropped constantly.
Every day the water level was a
little lower. Then this past win-
ter, traditionally south Florida's
dry season, it became worse and
worse until I1 was beginning to
think we'd soon end up with not
much more than a puddle pond.
However, the fish kept jumping
and the turtles kept multiplying
and I kept worrying.
Summer had just bowed in.
The days were long and hot but
the nights were cool and breezy.
Still no rain. Morning came. I went
out by the pond scanning the
skies for clouds that might mean
rain. There were none. However
in a matter of a few minutes, the
sun was basking in an overall sky
of blood-red. And I thought of the
old limerick: Red in the morning,
sailor's warning... A throw-back
to our idyllic lives on "Sweet
Thing" when we plied the warm
blue waters in and through and
around the Land of Flowers, that
long finger of the North American
continent unlike any other part of
this wondrous land.
I'd not much more than
thought of these words when the
wind rose sharply, the red sky
turned gray-black, lightening split
the heavens followed by hor-
rendous thunder and Josie and
I made a beeline for (he house!
Rain! Hard, driving rain in great
white sheets. The sound of the


rain on the tin roof was purely
music. Since that day about ten
days ago we've had rain every
day, off and on, and I stand at the
kitchen window simply watch-
ing the water -inching up. If this
rain pattern keeps up we'll see
the pond full again by summer's
end.
Just this morning before the
sun had entirely cleared the
tops of the cypress trees, a south
breeze was ruffling the water. Lit-
tle wavelets were bouncing from
shore to shore broken only by the
white splashes of jumping fish.
Although wondering for years
what particular conditions make
the water appear a glistering em-
erald green, no conclusions have
ever been reached. But here it
was. Every drop from one end
to the other was the same fresh,
clear shade of emerald green. I
held my breath for fear it would
vanish right in front of my eyes.
During that particular day the
only time it changed was when
heavy raindrops fell creating the
illusion of little upside-down um-
brellas.
Now we're about two weeks
down the road from that first
downpour and the pond is still
holding its own.
Toward twilight I ventured out
for one last look...afraid that wa-
ter and all might be gone but it
wasn't. It was the perfect painting
for the close of day. Great arms
of the live oaks were spreading
far out from the west bank, their
limb-trunks hugged by resurrec-
tion ferns. Suddenly, from the...
far end of the south meadow,
the great blue heron streaked in
a flawless straight-as-an-arrow
path over the water to his favorite
little spit of land at the north end
where I'm sure he spends many-
a-night.
Before turning back toward
the house, I had to have one long,
last look at that grand expanse of


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 "O" 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.

made haste to the porch to
watch him... From our vantage
point, on the edge of the open
porch, it seemed as though he
dunked and washed every feath-
er. First one wing splashing up
and down, then the other. His
tail feathers followed all togeth-
er, up and down, up and down.
And then he turned himself com-
pletely around, pushed his head
underwater for a second or two
and that was the end of his Sat-
urday night bath except for shak-


on the highest big limb as close
to the trunk as he could perch.
By this time twilight had become
dark-time and that big owl let us
know that our world had become
his world as he hooted long and
loud way into the night.
Later, turning out the light, I
could not help but hope that he
was not calling my name.... not
yet.
In 1967 a small book, "I
Heard The Owl Call My Name" by
Margaret Craven, was published
in Canada by Clarke Irwin from
which this "hope" refers to.

Moore Haven's Aaron Lopez, incoming freshman offensive lineman/outside linebacker, sets
a school-record with a lift of 205 Ibs. in the power clean exercise last week at the team's
workouts.


TREASURE COAST DERMATOLOGY
Specializing in the Treatment of Skin Cancer


Records fall in
workouts, three
crowned 'Big Dogs'


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN A positive at-
titude and a high confidence level
can do wonders for the Moore
Haven Terriers football program.
It was certainly the prevailing
theme throughout last week's
team trials, held at Moore Haven
High School from July 30 to Au-
gust 1.
More than 25 prospective foot-
ball players, ranging from Seventh
Sto 12th Grade, underwent a series
of tests to determine their speed,
agility and strength.
Jason Bond, the head coach,
Could not have been more proud
of his players as several of them
proved to .make great strides
Throughout the summer.
There were eight areas in
which each athlete was tested,
which included the bench press,
military press, po\\er clean, squat,
-10-yard dash, 20-yard backpedal
Srun, vertical leap, and 400-meter
run.
S Records were broken by sev-
Seral players, with most recording
Spersonal-best numbers in nearly
every area of testing, according to
' Bond.
Here are the school records
V that were set last week, as record-
ed by the head coach:
Military Press: Jaime Juarez
165 lbs.
Power Clean: Jermaine Au-
gustine and Aaron Lopez 205
lbs.
40-Yard Dash: Josh Patter-
son 4.3 seconds
400 Meter Run: Elazarus
Blackmon 54 seconds
20-Yard Backpedal Run:
Josh Patterson and. Keonte White
3.4 seconds
Vertical Leap: Lascelle Hum-
phrey 28 inches
There were some other high-
lights from last week's workouts,


and three of the players made the
Big Dog Club. The top achievers
were as follows:
Elazarus Blackmon 86 points
Lascelle Humphrey 85 points
Jermaine Augustine- 82 points
To make the Terrier's Big Dog
Club, players must score at least
80 points during the summer
workouts. The maximum score
anyone could get is 120 points,
equivalent to 15 points for each of
the eight testing areas.
For example, to score the max-
imum amount of 15 in the 40-yard
dash, your time must be recorded
at 4.2 seconds, which means that
Patterson missed the mark by a
tenth of a second.
In the power clean, you must
lift 300 lbs. to achieve a perfect
score. Augustine and Lopez
missed that figure by 95 lbs.
Nevertheless, it was encour-
aging to see each of the record-
holders and Big Dog Club mem-
bers congratulating each other on
a job well done, especially when
no one made Big Dog status last
year.
"Last year, we established
.strength andconditioning records
for the football program and this
summer, we broke six out of the
eight records," Bond said. "Our
numbers may not be as high as
other schools around the lake,
but we are improving."
The two records that still stand


are in the bench and squat exer-
cises, with Anthony Holley achiev-
ing those marks last year at 275
and 455 lbs., respectively.
Improvements were also
made in the summer workout at-
tendance, as 11 players made at
least 15 sessions.
That's up from just two players
who showed the commitment last
year, making Bond realize that his
team is getting serious about the
upcoming season, which begins
later this month.
Those who achieved that feat
were, in alphabetical order: Jer-
maine Augustine, Elazarus Black-
mon, Fred Hall, Lascelle Hum-
phrey, Kaleb Langdale, Vinton
Lewis, Errol Mundle, Cale Rivers,
Hunter Ward, Warner Ward and
Keonte White.
"I am pleased that we made
major improvements in the
weight room this summer," Bond
said.
"We improved our attendance
and the kids who worked out saw
gains in strength and speed."
Football practice officially be-
gins on Monday, August 11, at 5
p,m. for all students from seventh
to 12th grade.
Bond said that all prospective
players must have a current phys-
ical exam completed in order to
participate.

Florida MPA CEO Roger A. Fontes announces retirement


Roger A. Fontes announced
today that he will retire Sept. 5 as
General Manager and CEO of the
Florida Municipal Power Agency
(FMPA) after seven years lead-
ing the Orlando-based wholesale
power supplier.
"I will always look back on my
time at FMPA with pride and ad-
miration for what we've accom-
plished together," said Fontes.
"The time is right for me to


retire for a couple reasons. First,
we've completed the Treasure
Coast Energy Center and begun
development of a new unit at
Cane Island, both major short-
term goals. Secondly, this step
will allow me to spend more time
with my family and new grand-
son."
A special meeting of FMPA's
Board of Directors has been called
for Tuesday, Aug. 5 at noon to ad-


dress how FMPA will proceed
with naming an interim CEO.
"FMPA is well-positioned for
the future," said Fontes.
"Next week, we will celebrate
the commercial operation of
Treasure Coast Energy Center,
our first wholly owned generating
unit at a brand new power plant
site. And our Executive Commit-
tee last month approved FMPA's
Integrated Resource Plan, which


is the blueprint for our power
supply future."
"It has been a privilege and
a pleasure to work with Roger,"
said James C. Welsh, Chairman
of FMPA and President and Gen-
eral Manager of Kissimmee Utility
Authority.
"He has contributed enor-
mously to this organization. Un-
der Roger's leadership, FMPA has
transitioned from a non-operating


owner of power plants to a devel-
oper and operator of our own
generating units."
Prior to joining FMPA, Fontes
was the Assistant General Man-
ager at the Northern California
Power Agency, where he spent 20
years in executive and manage-
ment positions.
He was also employed five
years at the California Energy
Commission and five years with


the city of Los Angeles and its De-
partment of Water and Power.
Fontes serves in leadership
roles for a number of organiza-
tions and associations, including
the American Public Power As-
sociation (APPA), Public Gas Part-
ners, Transmission Access Policy
Group, Florida Municipal Power
Pool and the Florida Reliability
Coordinating Council.

On the move...again
During a recent workout session, the football players on the Clewiston Tigers pushed
each other to run their hardest in the 400 meter run. It was a sign which showed coaches
that the team will make sure they leave everything on the field this season.


INI/Naji Tobias
Firing away
Pahokee's Emmanuel Perez, an incoming sophomore quarterback, displayed some zip
and accuracy with the ball and made some timely passes to teammates at a recent work-
out. Nicknamed 'Tebow' by his fellow teammates, Perez could become the starting quar-
terback for the upcoming season, which begins August 30 against Olive Branch (Miss.)
in Miami.

Helping your teen overcome negative peer pressure


By the American
Counseling Association
Peer pressure is probably
the most important influence in
your teenager's life. While pa-
rental opinions certainly are con-
sidered, if only because of the
consequences of ignoring them,
it's more often the opinions and
actions of peers that help many
teens decide virtually everything
from hairstyles to clothing choic-
es to academic efforts.
Often, peer pressure is a good


thing that can lead to involvement
in sports, religious activities and
academic excellence. But peer
pressure can also be a negative,
especially for a teen lacking in self-
confidence and self-esteem, yet
anxious to be accepted by others.
Negative peer pressure can result
in trying to be part of a group re-
belling against those things (such
as school) about which the teen
feels less confident.
As a parent, you can help your
child overcome such negative
peer pressure. Step one is to help


build your teen's self-confidence
and positive self-image. Your goal
is to lessen criticism, while look-
ing for positive accomplishments
and chances to praise jobs well
done.
You also want to be genuinely
interested in your teen's life. Go
beyond the common "who, what,
where" questions to find out
what your teenager really is doing
and feeling. Learn to respect what
your teen is thinking even if you
hold an opposing point of view.
And yes, getting most teens


to open up can be difficult, but
if you're persistent, and show
appreciation when things are
shared, your teen will eventually
become more open with you.
Confronting problems as they
arise can also help combat nega-
tive peer pressure. Try to under-
stand your teen's need for certain
friends, but feel free to express
your concerns, and your reasons
for them, about such friends.
And sgnetimes it's simply
necessary to set rules and bound-
aries. While "forbidding" certain


friends seldom works, you can re-
strict the time spent with the most
worrisome of them and insist on
it being in supervised settings.
It also helps to strengthen the
family relationship. Insist that
homework and chores be done.
Set curfews and stick to them.
Handle small problems quickly,
before they become big ones.
And spend time with your teen,
establishing regular dinner hours
and finding quiet times when you
can really talk with one another.
Not all peer pressure is nega-


tive, but part of your parental re-
sponsibility is helping your teen
learn how to evaluate friendships.
You need to help your teen iden-
tify peers who provide real friend-
ship and positive benefits.

Candidates in local races will
have 5 minutes to speak and/or
field questions.
Order of speakers will be de-
termined by the host-i.e. at Lake-
port, the Lakeport Community
Association officers/hosts will de-
termine which field/race of local
candidates will go first, second,
etc, and they will also determine
the random order of the appear-
ance of the candidates in each
race.


Agenda/lineup flyers will be

Each host EmCee will make
sure Speaker Candidates are not
interrupted, to thus enjoy the re-
spectful decorum that Glades Vot-

answers unfinished during timed
sessions can continue at the end
of the rally at the candidates' dis-
cretion.
Refreshments are usually pro-
vided and unopposed candidates
are invited to help either by des-
ignated funding thru their party's
executive committee (Democrats

licans contact Doug Korinke), or
you may contribute directly to the
community associations.
Candidates are invited to ar-
rive early to make sure the host
MC is aware of their presence and
to display and/or distribute cam-
paign literature.
Community Association lead-
ers, let me know if you need a
help with the names or political
races of the candidates, or you
may contact the Supervisor of
Elections at 863-946-6005.
If possible, each community
association group should make
a strong concerted effort to pub-
licize the rallies and make phone


calls or personal contacts inviting
voters to attend and to give them
the phone number of Supervisor
of Elections so they can go ahead
and call for an absentee ballot for
the primary and/or the general
election.
Voter Registration closes July
28, for the Aug. 26, Primary Elec-
tion and Oct. 6, for the Nov. 4,
General Election.
If you need additional infor-
mation, feel free to contact Don-
na Storter Long, Glades County

Master


Gardener


Training/Fall Gardening
Videoconference
Last spring we offered training
to persons wishing to become
Master Gardeners. It uses our
new videoconference technol-
ogy. UF will again be offering
training for these wonderful vol-
unteers starting on Wednesday
September 3rd. Master Garden-
ers receive 55 hours of training
in basic horticulture and agree
to help our office with gardening
and landscape programs.
If you are NOT able to help
our office, the videoconferences
are still available to the general
public as well. Videoconferences
start at 9:30 AM and generally run
to noon, but one day it ends at 2


PM. There will be a certificate of
completion offered for attending
the videoconferences. Registra-
tion for these classes needs to be
completed and fees paid by Mon-
day August 18th.
Bugs
The first step in pest manage-
ment is to ID the pest. After that,
it's best to make changes in the
way the plant is grown to reduce
attacks by pests. But we all know
that summer is a great time to all
kinds of pests to haunt our plants
and grass.
Jadera Bugs are now appear-
ing on Milkweed plants. These
are red and black sap-suckers
that cause concern, but rarely
cause damage. Aphids are also
building up on Milkweeds, Crepe
Myrtles and many other land-
scape plants. Using soap sprays
will usually be enough to reduce
these suckers, and soap will not


kill the lady bugs that are work-
ing with you to remove these
plant lice.
Caterpillars are now easily
found on other landscape plants.
Yellow and black "worms" on
Snow bush are called span-
worms, and can take all the
leaves off this plant. A larger
caterpillar recently reported on
parsley plants is the larva of the
swallowtail butterfly. In the case
of these true caterpillars, using
the Bacillus thuringiensis bacte-
rial-based insecticides (call them
"B.t." in the garden center!) will
remove these worms without
harming.beneficial insects found
in your Florida Yard.

Rots and Spots
Got Rain? Then you probably
also have fungus "amongus".
Many plants are beginning to suf-
fer under the daily deluge of rain
and heat. When the spots and


rots appear, it may be too late to
prevent the damage to existing
leaves. You can do some things
to save the new leaves that will
soon grow on your landscape
plants., First thing is to turn off
your sprinkler. Then do what you
can to improve drainage and air
circulation which allows rain to
seep into the soil or drain off your
landscape.
But if these don't help, the use
of labeled fungicides can help.
Realize that they only can pre-
vent but not cure disease from
destroying leaves. A common
product used with a number of
landscape and garden plants is
the copper sprays. But be aware
that copper products may burn
some turf and ornamental plants.
Check the label or a bad situation
can become worse. Request and
read the UF bulletin, Homeown-
er's Guide to Fungicides before
you buy or use these products.

Renewable Fuels
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. --- Southeast Renewable Fuels, LLC (SRF)
has announced plans to permit and build the first of at least three
ethanol bio-refineries near Lake Okeechobee, a 20 million-gallon-
per-year operation on a 60-acre tract in Hendry county. Located 15
miles south of Clewiston, Florida on Highway 835, this plant will
be one of the first of its kind in Florida. Ground breaking is tenta-
tively scheduled for late summer, 2009.
According to Don Markley, chief operating officer, "SRF's first
plant represents a $75 million capital investment and will employ
47 people when complete. In addition to the creation of numerous
industrial and agricultural jobs, there will be profit opportunities
for growers and shareholders."
Ideal for growth in sandy soil, sweet sorghum, a high-yield dedi-
cated or rotational crop, will form the feedstock for the bio-refinery.
SRF is currently conducting field trials of sweet sorghum in various
soil types in other counties surrounding Lake Okeechobee.
Aaron Pepper, chief executive officer of SRF and the Londono
family of Clewiston form the core of the Florida Ethanol Coopera-
tive. Growers and investors are invited to participate in this coop-
erative ethanol project.

While on vacation, a trip to get
needed supplies landed me in a
slow line. It seems to happen a lot
- whatever line I get in seems to
slow down.
Ahead of me stood a rather
large gentleman in jeans and a
camo T-shirt and hunting cap. He
leaned over the shopping cart,
resting on large fore-arms, hands
together, obviously growing more
frustrated as the minutes marched
on but the line didn't.
This guy spoke loudly to the
man in front of him with hints
to any store manager who might
have been in ear-shot, "Why
don't they open the other regis-
ter? If I was the manager of this
store, I wouldn't make my cus-
tomers wait like this." The line


finally moved.
Afterwards I went to another
store, and since there were long
lines at the regular registers, I
decided to go to the shorter self-
checkout lane.
Unfortunately, the scanner
froze up several times requiring
the employee assigned to the self
check area to coax the scanner to
work. The quick checkout proved
to be not so quick.
Behind me stood a lady in her
late 60's who maintained a slight
smile and sunny disposition dur-
ing the slow down.
After several minutes of wait-
ing, the lady leaned my way and
commented, "Isn't it wonderful
that we have a store that has such
a wonderful selection,of groceries
we can buy?"
I agreed as I searched the lady's
face for some hint of sarcasm. I
found none. She appeared to be
completely sincere.
She continued as the employ-
ee unfroze the scanner for the
third time, "Look at how pleas-


antly that girl deals with a cantan-
kerous register. And who would
have ever thought that one day
we could just hold up a package
and something would recognize
spaghetti, or soup, or paper tow-
els? We are so blessed!"
Two slow lines, and two very
different attitudes. One person
reflected the frustration of entitle-
ment: I deserve to be waited on
- I deserve to be treated better!
The other person graced all who
heard her words of gratitude.
One saw only ineptitude; the
other saw pleasant service. One
waited with a sour demeanor;
the other waited with a loving
outlook.
The man's words and bear-
ing were harsh and abrasive. The
woman's comments and smile
refreshed the spirit.
As I thought of the two differ-,
ent responses to similar circum-
stances, something dawned on
me. My attitude paralleled the
man's.
No one else saw my attitude.


No one else heard me complain.
My thoughts, however, echo my
heart, and they weren't very lov-
ing.
I also realized that my negative
thoughts affected my day in a nol
so positive way. Circumstances
don't make any of us who we are,
they simply reveal to us what's
going on inside of us.
My reflection of what was go-
ing on inside of me disappointed
me.
I found the man's attitude of-
fensive and the woman's win-
some. I quickly passed judgment
in my heart on the man, but soon
saw myself in the one I judged.
"Lord, forgive me this selfish
attitude. Forgive my lack of grati-
tude. Change this heart! Grant me
the grace to be patient and pleas-
ant and thankful, no matter whale
the circumstances. May I become
one whose presence renews the
spirits of others instead of sap-
ping joy and peace from theii
lives. Amen."


How to prevent your divorce


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
One of the most devastating
things that can happen to a family
and a community is a divorce.
It's effects are vast and long-
lasting. Do you really want a mar-
riage that will last all your life?
Then make sure that you are
a true Christian, and marry a true
Bible Christian. The divorce rates
are the lowest among true Chris-
tians.
Remember that "an ounce
of prevention is worth a ton of
cure!"
The marriage ceremony is not
a "cure all," not a cure for drug
addiction, and not a "reform"
measure.
The marriage rites will not
make a wrong man or woman
right. Neither will a trip to the altar
be able to alter anyone who is not
right with God.
If you want a Christian home,
do not even consider marrying
someone who is not a faithful
Christian.
A lot of the "O promise me's"
have been broken by evil, world-
ly, carnal minded people after
marriage.
Our files bulge with horrible
true life stories. Then, too, do not
"date" a person that you would
not marry. Many well intentional
people have been "swept off their
feet" by some clever talker.
Love may be blind, but the
neighbors surely aren't!


In the beginning, God saw that
it was not good for man to be
alone, so He said, "I will make a
help meet for him" (Gen. 2:18).
After God created 'Eve, He
called them husband and wife
(Gen. 3:16-17), thus establishing
the first home or family. Christ
recognized this and added this
statement, "What therefore God
hath joined together, let not man
put asunder" (Matthew 19:6).
Divorce has never been a part
of God's plan (Malachi 3:15-16 &
Matthew 19:8). Divorce rates are
very high among those already
divorced one or more times, and
among the "teen" marriages.
Why marry in haste and then
repent at your leisure?
Christ is interested in your
home, to make it the very best it
can possibly be. Home is the No.
1 place where you practice your
Christianity.
It was at a wedding that Christ
performed his first miracle (John
2:11).
The number one cause of di-
vorce is fornication. Notice that
we did not say "sex" because that
word means whether a person is
a male or female.
The Bible word for "fornica-
tion" includes ALL forms of sex-
ual impurity or immorality. The
word "sex" has been misused
and perverted in this ungodly and
immoral age. Homosexuality and
lesbianism are called an ABOMI-
NATION in the Bible. Simply
stated, fornication is nothing but
a down payment on a divorce.


All sex acts outside of marriage
are dirty, and degrading. Hebrews
13:4 says "Let marriage be had in
honor among all, and let the bed
be undefiled; for fornicators and
adulterers God will judge."
The number two cause for
divorce seems to be money mis-
management, or finances.
It used to be, "Until death do
us part," in the marriage cere-
mony. Now is seems to be, "Un-
til debt do us part," because so
many divorces are being caused
by money troubles.
Prevent a divorce? Watch how
your prospective mate manages
his/her money matters.
A person who cannot manage
their obligations before marriage
is not apt to change after mar-
riage.
Do not marry someone who
drinks alcohol in any form, or
uses other forms of soul and body
destroying drugs.
Alcohol and tobacco are drugs,
even thou they have been "legal-
ized" by greedy politicians and
governments. "Social drinking,"
or drinking "just for fun" leads to
drunkenness which has ruined
many homes.
Prevent a divorce? Is he or she
truthful? Good marriages are built
on confidence and trust. Absolute
honesty goes a long way towards
keeping a marriage intact. Hon-
esty is needed in every aspect of
a good home.
Watch how your prospective
mate's parents treat each other.
After all, they have been his/her


model.
The way they treat each other
could well be the way that you
will be treated. To a certain ex-
tent, when you marry, you marry
the "family" as well as your mate.
Sometimes in laws have become
"outlaws."
If your parents or closest spiri-
tual, sensible friends object stren-
uously, find out why.
Take time to convince them
of either your prospective mate's
character, or yours. Many mar-
riage problems can only be
prevented, and probably never
solved!
What about the job record? A
young man who cannot get and
keep a job may have a few flaws.
Frequent job changes might indi-
cate instability.
Then too, a wife who insists
on working away from home is
only weakening her marriage.
Homemaking is a full time job.
Children deserve a mother who
stays at home.
If you are married, and you
find yourself caught up in a situ-
ation that is far from pleasing to
God, there is hope for you!
Many marriage "situations"
have been completely reversed
for the good when Christ has
been given first place in the lives
involved. Christ can help with ev-
ery problem for those who will let
him. Will you?

extended rainfall

West Palm Beach The South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) announced today
that South Florida received July
rainfall of 8.63 inches District-
wide, which is about two inches
above the historical average for
the month.
Unsettled weather enhanced
afternoon thunderstorm activity
throughout July, bringing the rain-
fall total into the range typically


seen in June, which is typically
the wettest month of the season.
In July, the Lake Okeechobee
region received rainfall of about
one inch above the historical av-
erage, and the Kissimmee River
region received rainfall of about
four inches above the historical
average.
The additional rainfall helped
to bring Lake Okeechobee's wa-
ter level to 10.68 feet NGVD on
July 31, or more than one foot
higher than it was in July 2007.
Weekend rains during the first
days of August brought the level
to 10.74 feet as of today. However,


the lake remains about three feet
below its historical average for
this time of year.
While the July rains were wel-
come, the District remains affected
by a multi-year rainfall deficit. The
2008 wet season follows a below-
average November through May
dry season, and June's rainfall
averaged 8.3 inches District-wide,
an amount which is about the
historical average. Florida's wet
season typically lasts about five
months, through November 1.
The season produces on average
two-thirds, or 35 inches, of the re-
gion's annual rainfall.

(FHREDI). Notifying and recruit-
ing companies in the health care
industry will begin in December.
If a company decides to relocate
to the Heartland region,' then
each participating county can ex-
pect to collect a share of the tax
increments generated from the
company. The county decided to
approve the MOA.
The county approved an ordi-
nance for land use and approvals


for power plants and prisons. The
amendment of land development
regulations concerned power
plants, public utility facilities, and
prison/correctional facilities in
zoning districts. The ordinance
also provides that the board of
county commissioners will now
decide special exception permit-
ting. Formerly, the planning com-
mission made exception deci-
sions.
The county adopted a pro-
posed millage rate for 2008-2009
of 9.1367. A current roll-back rate
of 9.5021 was adopted, and a cur-
rent roll-back rate for MSTU for


law enforcement of 2.0286 was
adopted. Sept. 22 is the proposed
date to adopt the budget and mill-
age rate.
Note of correction: at the last
county meeting on July 8, a news
article reported in error, that the
board recommended Mike Press-
ley to the water management
governing board. The news ar-
ticle should have reported that
Mike Pressley was appointed to
Water Resources Advisory Com-
mission (WRAC).

The chuck wagon, a very impor-
tant part of the long cattle drives
across Lake Okeechobee in the
1800s was the staple for the tired
and hungry trail riders at the end
of a long day. Well-known chuck
wagon cooks like Wash Morgan
sent their aromatic message with
the clanging ring of the dinner
bell to hail "chow time" and bring
everyone to the campfire. The
chuck wagon cook was a wel-
come homecoming on the range
that filled the tired "cow hunters"
with home-made vitals on their
drive to Punta Rassa on the west
coast for shipment of cows to
Cuba and to Fort Pierce, on the
east coast, for shipment of cattle
to the breadbasket of America.

Statewide annual revenue
losses could be more than $1.6
billion, and job losses could be
upwards of 10,711, according to
IFAS researchers. Most of the im-
pact will occur to the rural coun-
ties on the west, south and east
banks of Lake Okeechobee. The
loss of revenue for this region is
estimated at $1.43 billion and the
estimated job losses would be
8,935. The most severe effects
would be felt in Glades and Hen-
Sdry Counties where the majority
of the milling, field work, trans-
port and processing takes place.
There is the possibility of a 25 per-
cent loss to total personal income
in these two counties.
The IFAS research document is
called "Economic Impacts of the
U.S. Sugar Corporation Buyout in
Florida" and its authors are Alan
W Hodges, W David Mulkey,
Thomas H. Spreen, and Rodney
L. Clouser. The analysis, ,autho-
rized by the Florida Farm Bureau,


uses economic multipliers which
can help predict the ripple effect
of additional economic activity.
Economic multipliers could in-
clude Florida businesses that are
indirectly involved, and triggers
that cause the workforce to spend
less in the regional economy.
Florida State Senator, Dave
Aronberg, made his concerns
known on Friday, August 1.
"This report makes clear there
needs to be some provisions in
the deal for the people of Glades
and Hendry Counties. We need
to make sure the people are pro-
tected," Senator Aronberg said.
He went on to explain that he
has heard nothing about re-train-
ing for jobs or new industries.
WE."Ted" Guy, of Stuart, was
the representing attorney for the
Miccosukee Tribe during their
1988 lawsuit to clean up the Ever-
glades. He is familiar with the use
of an economic multiplier meth-
od mentioned in the IFAS docu-
ment. He has his own thoughts
on the research.

Florida State Representative
Denise Grimsley has been pursu-
ing contacts in her concerns for
the sugar buyout. She comment-
ed August 1.
"I met with the governor yes-
terday primarily to express my
continued concern over the po-
tential economic impacts as well
as keeping agriculture viable in
our area," said Representative
Grimsley.

of Palmdale, a fifth generation
family of Glades County, is mak-
ing a bid for public office, that of
Commissioner for District 3.
Mr. Jones is self employed,
owning and operating A & H
Company that specializes in site
preparation, excavation, and
heavy equipment jobs. He says
he has extensive experience in
dealing with county/government
codes, restrictions and estimat-
ing in the areas of agriculture,
residential and commercial.


His work experience includes
production supervisor of ma-
jor citrus and cattle operations
maintaining day to day opera-
tions which have instilled in him
a deep appreciation for the beau-
ty of the land, wildlife, peaceful-
ness and a pure love for the land
and God's creations.
Jerry's education includes
graduate of LaBelle High School,
Lee Vo Tech welding and automo-
tive, University of Florida courses
in horticulture, citrus, pesticides
and safety programs. He holds
a Construction Competency Li-
cense in Excavation/Demolition
and is currently studying for state
general contractor's license.


Married to Becky McClain,
they have two sons, Alex 22 who
attends the University of Florida
and Holden 21, a student at the
University of Tennessee.
Jerry Jones is adamant about
stressing the importance of vot-
ing, not so much who you vote
for but simply that you exercise
your right and freedom to vote.
"I thank all for the consideration
of their vote on August 26th and
if the Good Lord willing on No-
vember 4th."
He also strongly believes that
people don't care what you know
until they know what you care
about. He declares that he is the
first to admit that he is short on


political experience, having held
no public office up until now.
"However, I'm long on com-
mon sense and principles not to
mention many years of business
background and knowledge of
politics.
"And I must say that I've lived
in both Lee and Hendry Counties
but nothing compares to living
in Glades County on my pappy's
home-place which has been in
our family for over 70 years."
If you elect me, I vow to be
your spokesperson not my own
advocate, to make fair and im-
partial decisions for all residents/
property owners, to work to keep
Glades County rural yet strive for


improvement and growth pre-
serving the integrity of the land, a
hands-on commitment you can,
count on and to open all avail-
able doors for grant funding.
I promise that your vote for
me will not be wasted... together
we can make a difference in
Glades County.
