Fay passes through Glades County


Tropical storm
winds sustained at
60 m.p.h.

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Tropi-
cal Storm Fay, reached Collier
County before 5 a.m. Tuesday
morning, and shortly thereafter
a tornado warning was issued
at 5:30 a.m. for southeast Glades
County. A National Weather Ser-


vice announced that doppler
radar had indicated a possible
tornado near Clewiston, moving
northwest at 44 m.p.h.
Heavy rain bands began to
move over LaBelle and Muse
about 7:37 a.m. By 8:35 a.m., the
storm had not strengthened but
was holding its own as it neared
Glades County which was un-
der flood, tornado and tropical
storm wind warnings. The storm
was expected to pass close to the
west side of Lake Okeechobee.
The South Florida Water


Management District reported
Tuesday morning that the lake
level was 11.34 feet on Lake
Okeechobee which is below
normal; however, wind gusts
caused above normal levels on
the west bank.
Water levels fluctuated dra-
matically, depending on direc-
tion of the wind.
At 10:16 a.m., Angela Snow,
Glades County Emergency
Management, reported that the
storm center was at latitude 25.9
North and latitude 81.7 West


School year begins: Open house

School referendum vote nears


Only voters can ap-
prove using capital
village for school
operation costs

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- School
district administration, the
school board and the local
teacher's union have an inter-
est in the school referendum
on election day, August 26. Stu-
dents and school workers will
be affected by the results of the
vote.


On the ballot, voters will find
the referendum titled "Flex-
ible Funding for Glades County
Schools." Passage of the refer-
endum would allow the school
district to use part of its capital
millage dollars for operating ex-
penses. Incidentally, this would
not increase ad valorem taxes.
School boards do not have the
authority to use capital millage
for operating expenses. Only
voters can approve the decision
by an election.
At a county meeting, May
13, superintendent, Wayne Al-
drich, and school board chair-
man, Mike Pressley presented
a report to the county commis-
sioners. Budget cuts and staff


reorganization had been done;
however the budget had fallen
short of balancing. They men-
tioned that a shift of funds was
necessary, but it can only have
approval from voters. The coun-
ty commissioners approved the
request to put the referendum
on the ballot for August 26.
According to Mike Pressley,
superintendent Aldrich and ad-
ministrative staff reduced per-
sonnel expenses by $364,720
through attrition and not filling
vacancies. They also imple-
mented energy conservation,
reduced transportation expens-
es and non-personnel expens-

with maximum sustained winds
at 60 m.p.h. Four to eight inches
of rain were expected.
Around 11;49 a.m., The Na-
tional Weather Service reported
that the center of Tropical Storm
Fay was near the Ortona and
Moore Haven area with maxi-
mum sustained winds at 60
m.p.h. with higher gusts. A tropi-
cal storm wind warning was to
remain in effect until 8:00 a.m.
The newly implemented
211 emergency information as-
sistance for Glades County re-


ceived its introduction to service
beginning August 18. The United
Way/211 partners were stationed
with the Glades County Sheriff's
Office and emergency manage-
ment. On August 19, at 12;20
p.m., the 211 information op-
erators had no special reports of
severity, except for a great deal
of rain and wind. As of 1 p.m.,
county communities were still
pelted with rain.

LAKEPORT -- Paul Beck is
the chairman for the Glades
County Board of County Com-
missioners. He is up for re-
election, and has given time to
answer a few questions.
Where were you born and
raised?...l was born in Arcadia
because it was the hospital
which had the shortest travel
time from Lakeport. My grand-
father and family moved here
almost a century ago when
Glades County was a part of
DeSoto County and the county
seat was Arcadia. My family
has continuously resided here
since.
Where else have you lived
in Florida?...As a full time resi-
dent, I have lived in Lakeport
my entire life with the excep-
tion of six years in school and
one year in Miami managing a
dental clinic.
What occupations have
you held in addition to coun-
ty commissioner?...A) cattle
and citrus industry-owner,
manager, developer. B) build-
ing industry-management,
owner. C) heavy equipment
contractor-agricultural, land
development. In February 1996
I semi-retired keeping a few
pieces of equipment and three
clients. After many years of the
responsibilities of up to 24 full
time employees ensuring that
they have a job on Monday and
a paycheck on Friday, I wel-
comed a slower pace, and time
for myself. In 1998 I accepted
a challenge from a friend in
Miami to improve the produc-
tion in his dental clinic. After a
year of working in Miami dur-
ing the week, and for my clients
on weekends and on holidays,
the challenge was successfully


completed and I came back
home; and D) in 1999, 1 be-
gan investing in rental proper-
ties in Glades and Okeechobee
Counties which I still maintain
today.
When, and why did you
first decide to run for a political
office?...I first decided to run for
county commissioner in Febru-
ary 2004. I wafted to bring
awareness to the state of Glades
County and some things which
I thought needed improvement.
I was hoping to create a posi-
tive change in the management
and departmental operations
of the county. After the second
community association meet-
ing, people liked what I stood
for and began donating money -t
to help finance my campaign,
It was at that point I thought I
could effect more change from
the inside than the outside. I
cancelled my vacation and hit
the campaign trail. I have been
working for improvement in
Glades County ever since.
What skills have you ac-
quired in local government that
prepare you to continue on
as a county commissioner?...I
acquired most of my skills in
the private sector as a business
owner and manager. I have
increased my knowledge and
sharpened my skills taking edu-
cational courses through the
Florida Association of Counties.
Some of the course are, but
not limited to county govern-
ment roles and responsibilities,
structure and authority, finan-
cial management and effective
communication. I will be in the
next graduating class as a Certi-
fied County Commissioner.
What puts a smile on your
face?...Thinking about my three
year old granddaughter; it hap-
pens every time. She has been

A A Message from SheriffRonnie Lee;


Dear Friends,

In November 2004, the good people ofHendry County voted to make me their Sheriff again. They put their faithin me
toamaki HendryCounty asafer, more wholesomeeommunity 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 agenciesso that we could.benefit from theirex.periIcreated and continue to promote, an
"peri o1" o policy inviting the public to talk to 'eiibout hat is important to them. In 2004 1 owedi f elected; to
make certain changes dealing with drugs, chops shop, prostitution, jail and the safety of our children. T 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 Sheriff by voting and Re-Electing me
to continue the job.

Olympic games; National


parade or national charade?


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One Olympic newscast caused
me to think of something that
happened awhile back. It was
when I was asked to visit some-
one. His home was neat, but there
seemed to be something wrong.
My host talked to me but he didn't
quite look at me. He smoked and
I noticed that he was a bit sloppy
in lighting his cigarette to putting
the ashes in the ashtray in front of
him.
I didn't stay long and we part-
ed courteously. I asked myself
"What's wrong with this picture?
But couldn't really put my finger
on it. Later someone said "Didn't
they tell you? He's blind." Then all
of the pieces came together; we
were really living in two different
worlds, that blind man and me.
As I watched the little Chinese girl
sing at the Olympics, and then
learned that she was really lip -
synching another child, I also saw
something else that didn't fit.
Then, the reason why was giv-
en; the younger singer didn't meet
the "standards of beauty" and so
was kept out of sight. I couldn't
help but wonder how the young
singer must have felt; being told
that she wasn't pretty enough to
be shown in spite of her talent.
Like my visit to the blind man, I
sensed something was wrong.
What did this say about the so-
ciety that did such things to a
child?
The young singer gave a gra-
cious answer; that knowing her
voice was used was "enough."


What a front she apparently has
learned to put on, even at a ten-
der age. No hint of the disappoint-
ment that surely must have been
there; it seemed to be that "What-
ever happens, you must smile."
Again, I thought "What's wrong
with this picture?" As I watched.
Then I put my reflections in the
context of the whole Olympic
games; how what goes on repre-
sents the whole country.
The act was an indictment of
the Olympic system. The Bible
teaches that "He who is faithful
in a very little is faithful also in
much; and he who is dishonest
in a very little is dishonest also in
much (Luke 16:10)." What did
this act say about the character
and morality of a people who
would do such a thing? Winning
at any cost? Individuals are valu-
able only insofar as they can be
used to someone else's ends? Is
this "sportsmanship" which is
supposed to be the hallmark of
the Olympic games?
My own view of sportsman-
ship is when all compete on an
even playing field. Those who are
trained by their respective gov-
ernments and caused to dedicate
their entire lives to winning are
unfair competition to the house-
wife who trains in her spare time
after working and raising her fam-
ily. I remember hearing not too
long ago about the dictators who
punished their athletes if they
lost at the Olympics; missing the
values of what the Olympics are
about in the first place.
In my wildest imagination,
I see nothing "sportsmanlike"
about such a travesty. My sup-

port goes out to all those who
keep the spirit of the Olympics
and reflect the moral values that
they are about in the first place. It
is not about winning at any cost
or about putting on a good show,
or making sure your population
knows how to please visitors for a
few weeks. It is about fair play, re-
ally fair play, and being your best
because you kept the spirit and
values the games are supposed to
represent.
Those who must be first at any
cost have made a great sacrifice,
but it is without honor. They miss
the point of the games and reflect
missing something about life it-
self. Then I think about our own
values as a society and people;
and what will ultimately matter
- that we can compete with any-
one because we understand the
place of morals and.values, and
respect for persons. :
One young gymnast captured
the spirit of the Olympics after not
performing as well as she would
have liked. She said that, first and
foremost, her team was a family.
United together with a common
goal, and knowing that the family
spirit would sustain and support
was more important than medals.
Being a representative of people
with special values and a special
place in God's world made her a
true champion.
She was a winner no matter
what the scores reflected. We
need to cherish what she repre-
sents, return to what may have
been lost, and know that how
you play the game is more impor-
tant she speaks eloquently for all
of us.

Nature trail to open


By Nancy Dale
Big plans are underway for the
"grand opening" of the Fort Cen-
ter Eco-tourism and nature lovers
trail at Lakeport off Banana Grove
Road, County Road 78 on the west
side of Lake Okeechobee. As Fall
turns the corner, the Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWCC) is planning the un-
veiling of all the major work they
have accomplished over the past
few years in making the ancient
trails of the Belle Glades Indians
open to the public with kiosks de-
scribing their lifestyle some 2000
years ago. Still present are the
remains of their mound civiliza-
tion detailed in Florida Atlantic
University archeologist's book
on Fort Center. Dr. Sears was at
Fort Center when the mounds
were excavated and assisted in
the preservation of artifacts now
housed at the University of Florida
Museum of Natural History. Ironi-
cally, moving ahead in time, Fort
Center was also one of the many
Civil War forts constructed during
the Seminole Wars where bounty
hunters were directed to remove
Seminoles from the state with the
passage of the 1800s Indian Re-
moval Act. The only remains of
the Fort may be buried deep with-
in the oxbow of Fisheating Creek
which curves gracefully through
the silence of unspoiled beauty
of weeping cypress trees, spiky
palmettos, and lush oaks along its
banks. At the annual meeting of
Save or Creek (SOC) held on Au-
gust 9, SOC board member, Deen
Mountain, who reported on the
FWCC's progress, is coordinating
SOC's involvement with FWCC in
opening day activities; exact date
is to be determined.

Also at the annual SOC meet-
ing, officers were elected and a
vacated board member position
filled. Butch Jones, due to other
commitments, will not serve this
year as a board member or Vice
President, but Liz Donley of the
- Fort Myers, Guardian of Telegraph


Swamp group, an affiliate of SOC,
was voted to assume his duties on
the board. She will also serve as
Secretary of the organization with
Harris Friedman moving from
the Secretary role to that of Vice
President. All other board mem-
bers, officers, and committee
heads were maintained including
Ellen Peterson as President, Am-
ber Bratz as Treasurer; and Helen
Dixon as Membership Chair.

In other business, Harris Fried-
man gave an update on the pres-
ervation of Tom Gaskin's Cypress
Knee Museum along U.S. 27 by
Fisheating Creek campground
that was vacated in 1999 when
the State purchased Lykes Broth-
ers land on both sides of the high-
way. The artifacts of cypress knee
statues and ancient canoes that
were housed in the museum have
long ago been removed. Efforts
previously approved by SOC will
continue in seeking a a renovation
funds grant from the Department
of Historical Resources which has
been rolled-over in the list of 2008
preferences; in addition, there
will be continued efforts to list the
museum on the National Registry
of Historic Buildings.

As Glades County gains more
attention as an eco-tourism desti-
nation with national focus recent-
ly featuring Gatorama on network
television, members discussed the
creation of a "Strategic Manage-
ment Plan" for SOC to identify a
Mission, Vision, Values and image
to be used in various promotions
that focuses on the purpose of the
organization in preserving and
promoting, economically, one of
last pristine wilderness areas in
the state. All members (including
anyone interested in becoming a
member or otherwise helping to
protect the creek) are invited to
attend the 10 a.m., August 23rd,
planning session to be held at
Fisheating Creek campground.

The new baby alligators are coming!


PALMDALE-Do your children
think education is boring? "It def-
initely does not have to be," say
Allen and Patty Register, owners
of Gatorama. It is the time of year
that chirping, grunting and snap-
ping baby alligators emerge from
their shells to meet the world. Ga-
torama is marking this occasion
by hosting an "Alligator Hatching
Festival" Aug. 22, through Sept.
1, at their facility at 6180 U.S.
Highway 27, Palmdale.
"This is a great opportunity
for parents to teach their children
about one of natures fascinating
life cycles," says Allen Register.
"For the next two weeks we will
welcome over two thousand al-
ligators into the world at Gatora-
ma. Guests will actually be able
to see these little baby alligators
wiggle out of the eggs."
Visitors to Gatorama will also
be able to learn about the history
of the American alligator and
how the populations have been
protected through one of the
most truly successful, sustain-
able-use management programs
ever implemented. American al-
ligators have been off the endan-
gered species list since 1987 and
populations are still growing. Al-
ligator farming is am important
part of the program.
There will be two shows
Monday through Saturday at
11:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. and
three on Sunday at 2:00, 3:30
and 4:30 p.m. Regular admis-
sion is $14.95. Children less than


five feet are admitted for $6.95.
For guests that want a hands-on
experience, a "Hatch and Hold"
package is available. This pack-
age allows the guest to actually
hold an egg and let the baby al-
ligator hatch in their hands. The
cost for this package is $10.
Gatorama opened in 1957 as
one of Florida's first alligator at-
tractions. It is still a popular tourist
attraction as well as an operating
alligator farm. One of Gatora-
ma's main attractions for visitors
and professional photographers
is the natural Florida scenery in
which these prehistoric beasts
sunbathe in the warm tropi-
cal climate. Giant oak trees and
palm trees cover the fifteen acre
attraction. Visitors will also find
other animals along the covered
1000 foot walkway and wooden
bridge, monkey's, bobcats, rac-
coons, peacocks, ducks and
geese all call Gatorama home,
as do six species of crocodiles in-
cluding the American Crocodile.
Gatorama is the largest captive
breeder in North America of the
Acutus Crocodile.

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.
For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

U.S. Sugar

refinery

breaking

records
CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar
Corporation announced that the
Clewiston Refinery is breaking
several key production records.
The sugar refining and packag-
ing facility is projected to set new
production records by the end of
August for total refined produc-
tion (12.85 million cwt), pack-
aged production (4.62 million
cwt), and liquid sugar production
(630,000 cwt). Previous records:
total refined production (11.34
cwt, set in 05-06), packaged pro-
duction (4.13 million cwt., set in
03-04) and liquid sugar produc-
tion (514,341 cwt, set in 06-07).
"The Refinery is running ex-
ceptionally well, breaking records
at every turn," said Robert Coker,
senior vice president, public af-
fairs.
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility to refine all of the com-
pany's raw -sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt. or
2250 tons per day. The expansion
along with the enhanced high
quality sugar produced by the
modernization and consolidation
of the Clewiston Mill and a stable
team of refinery employees are
credited with the record produc-
tion.
By the end of the week, the
Company will have moved 30,000
tons of raw sugar from barges en-
tering the Port of Tampa to Clewis-
ton. If the record pace continues,
the Refinery may surpass 13 mil-
lion cwt. in annual refined sugar
production for the first time. -
U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art
sugar factory in Clewiston is the
result of a project, termed "Break-
.through" for its dramatic consoli-
dation and transformation of the
Company's two older raw sugar
milling operations.
According to Coker, the sum-
mer repair. season for the raw
sngar factory is going well, with
an anticipated start to the next
crop in early October.

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.

I am the ONLY candidate with a Plan for
change. And I have the backbone to make
the decisions necessary to implement that
change. I have both the construction and
management experience that will help me
turn the Property Appraiser's office in the
accurate, professional and courteous envi-
ronment it should be.

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 suc-
cessfully completing the necessary courses with the International Association
of Assessing Officers.

I will not value your property based on 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.ep9h and ,evrey p unty govrn-.
mental agency should strive to work together for the good of the whole coun-
ty. I can help make these things happen with your vote and God's grace.

Buzzard, bat, bumblebee


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
We all have skepticism in us.
Think about these phrases: "Open
wide now, this isn't going to hurt
a bit." "It is easy to assemble. Just
follow the directions." "Hi. I'm
from the IRS and I'm here to help
you." "Please, daddy, Ill walk
him. I'll feed him. I'll do every-
thing."
So, when my niece sent me an
article about buzzards, bats, and
bumblebees, I liked the analogy,
but wondered whether the facts
stated were actually true. In true
"Myth buster" fashion, I decided
to test them out.
Claim 1:If you put a buzzard in
a pen that is six feet by eight feet
and is entirely open at the top, the
bird, in spite of its ability to fly, will
be an absolute prisoner. The rea-
son is that a buzzaid always be-
gins a flight from the ground with
a run of 10 to 12 feet. Without
space to run, as is its habit, it will
not even attempt to fly, but will re-
main a prisoner for life in a small
jail .with no top.
The conclusion: assumed true.
I couldn't find any set facts, but
from my experience of buzzard
watching, I have noticed that they
always seem to hop at leasttwo
or three times before flight.
Claim 2: The ordinary bat that
flies around at night, a remarkable
nimble creature in the air, cannot
takeoff from a level place. If it is
placed on the flooror flat ground,
+ all it can do is shuffle about help-
lessly until it reaches some slight
elevation from which it can throw


itself into the air. Then, at once, it
takes off like a flash.
Conclusion: assumed true.
Bats are the only mammals ca-'.
pable of true flight, that is, flight
powered by muscular movement
as distinct from gliding. The wing
is a double membrane of skin
stretched between the enormous-
ly elongated bones of four fingers
and extending along the body
from the forelimbs to the hind
limbs and from there to the tail.
The hind limbs are small and may
be rotated in such a way that the
knees bend backward rather than
forward, as in other mammals;
this is presumably an adaptation
for takeoff and flight. Bats at rest
hang head down, grasping a twig
or crevice with their clawed feet;
they take off into flight from this
position.
Claim 3: A bumblebee, if
.dropped into an open tumbler,
will be there until it dies, unless
it is taken out.-It never sees the
means of escape at the top, but
persists in trying to find some way
out through the sides near the


bottom. It will seek a way where
none exists, until it completely de-
stroys itself.
Conclusion: assumed true. I
learned some time ago that bees
don't fly at night. They do,.how-
ever, fly in the daytime and
they sting! I happened to find a
bumble bee buzzing around, and
trapped it in a gallon jar. With the
jar upright, it just buzzed around.
I turned the jar on its' side, and
the angered bumblebee exited
stage right (to my stage left!)
Having settled all of these
claims, I have come to a fourth
conclusion: In many ways, we are
like the buzzard, the bat, and the
bumblebee. We struggle about
with all our problems and frustra-
tions, never realizing that all we
have to do is look up! We find
ourselves penned in, shuffling
around with no secure footing,
or trying unsuccessfully to escape
what's restricting us without rec-
ognizing that the way up is the
way out.
Sorrow looks back, worry
looks around, but faith looks up!

TO: Glades County Residents
FROM: Glades County School Board
RE: Flexible Funding Referendum August 26, 2008

The Glades County School Board has placed on the August 26, 2008 ballot a
referendum to allow "Flexible Funding for the Glades County Schools".
Specifically, we are asking for your permission to use part of our capital expen-
diture dollars for operating expenses. The net result of this referendum DOES
NOT increase your ad valorem taxes.. In accordance with Florida Statutes
1011.71 and 1011.73, the school district must first get voter approval to levy
additional operating millage. This affirmation then allows for an equal reduc-
tion in capital millage levy, thereby creating a tax neutral shift.
The rationale for the referendum is as follows:
1.) The referendum DOES NOT increase your taxes.
2.) Since October, 2007, and due to the economic downturn resulting
in a drastic reduction in sales tax collections, the State has reduced school
operating revenue to Glades County by $626,389.00.
3.) Increased fuel prices and the resulting impact on utility bills is projected to
increase our operating expenses by $224,000.00.
4.) We have been notified by the State to plan for a 2% reduction in state funds
for the 08-09 school year and expect further reductions if sales tax
collections continue to fall short of projections.
5.) School districts do not have the authority to use capital millage dollars for
operating expenses.
6.) Only by voter approved referendum can capital village dollars be used for
operating expenses.
7.) This voter approved referenduri to enact operating village requires the
Glades County School Board to reduce capital millage levy by an equal
amount; thereby creating a tax neutral shift.
8.) Again, the referendum DOES NOT increase your taxes.

Teach kids financial responsibility


By Tabitha Trent
Riverside National Bank
Few topics are as hard to talk
to kids about as money maybe
because most of us aren't confi-
dent about the subject ourselves.
Instead we avoid topics like how
much we earn, what food and
housing cost, and our financial
arrangements for the future. By
dodging these subjects we set our
kids up to be as financially con-
fused as we are.
Just because we aren't teach-
ing our kids about money, doesn't
mean they aren't spending it. Ac-
cording to a 2007 CBS News story,
kids between eight and twelve
spend $30-billion of their own
money every year.
Fortunately, the biggest influ-
- ence on how kids spend is not ad-
vertising, friends, or TV program-
ming. It's you.
If you want your children to
be financially responsible, show
them holw.
Start with an allowance
An allowance is an opportu-
nity for your child to learn about
income and budgeting and


a way for you to get some relief
from their requests for money and
purchases.
Generally, if a child is old
enough to ask you to buy things,
he or she is old enough for an al-
lowance. Even preschoolers can
handle small amounts of money
for personal purchases.
Now, how much? Depending
on you and your family's finan-
cial situation, try 504 a week for
each year of age (an eight year old
would receive $4 a week). Or give
your child an amount equal to his
or her grade in school ($3 a week
for a third grader).
Set a budget
Help your child learn to man-
age money by setting a budget.
List all of the expenses you have
approved and how much money
should go to each, balancing sav-
ings, charity, and gifts with fun
items.
Whatever budget you set,
stick to it. Children are less likely
to hold on to their money if they
know you will help them when
they run out. If your child runs out
of money, use it as an opportunity
to talk about the consequences of


overspending.
Teach saving
Once they live with a budget,
kids quickly discover they don't al-
ways have enough money to buy
what they want when they want
it. Helping them work toward big-
ger purchases can be a great intro-
duction to saving.
Start with a piggy bank or chil-
dren's account at your personal
bank. Show your child how to
keep track of deposits and interest
by looking at their account online.
You may also want to help your
children find ways to earn extra
money to reach their goals faster.
Practice
By starting young, kids have a
chance to practice financial skills
they'll need as adults. Besides
budgeting and saving, you can in-
troduce them to "grown-up" tools
like checking accounts and debit
cards. Many banks offer youth or
teen checking accounts that allow
kids to learn how to pay bills, bal-
ance accounts, and use ATM and
debit cards wisely all with your
oversight.

School Board District 2


As someone with a compro-
mised thyroid, I am always inter-
',eted in natural ways to boost my
',metabolism. And while it is true
that exercise will do a metabo-
lism good, there are a number of
foods that will get your metabo-
lism going in the right direction
as well. What's not to love about
that?
Here then is a list of my Top
Ten Metabolism Boosting Foods:
1 Some like it hot. Chilis, cay-
enne pepper, salsa-just add
some picante to your meals and
watch your metabolism climb,
perhaps as much as 20 percent!
Who knew a spicy burrito (make
it with lean protein and easy on
the cheese!) could work won-
ders?
2 Berry interesting. With their
high fiber content, berries have
the distinction of giving you less
calories than you eat! Add to that
their natural sugar content that
nicely satisfies a sweet tooth,
berries need to be on everyone's
shopping lists!
3 Fishing for compliments.
Once again, wild salmon makes
Ihe lisIt ith its bundant omega 3
fatty acids. Omega-3 fatty acids
not only increases your metabo-
lism, but it increases energy levels
too and makes your skin positive-
ly glow!
4 A high celery. When I was in
high school, we ate celery to lose
Weight before cheerleading com-
petitions. Celery is one veggie that
uses more energy to digest and
absorb it then the calories you get
From eating it.
5 Pucker up. By adding a table-
spoon of lemon juice to a glass of
water every morning, you'll slow
digestion down a bit, aiding to
your body's ability to metabolize
and thus speeding everything up!


No sugar though...this is lemon-
aid in its purest form!
6 Ice, ice baby. Regular water
consumption is good for one's
metabolism by helping your body
with digestion and detoxification
and can help raise metabolism
rate by 30 percent. Bring down
the temperature a bit on your
trusty bottle of water (40 degrees
F) and you'll burn even more, ac-
cording to a report in the Journal
of Clinical Endocrinology and Me-
tabolism.
7 Float your oats. Oatmeal's
slow release of glucose and fi-
ber to fill you up makes this a
metabolism favorite of those in
the know for years! Even if your
memories of childhood porridge
are less than fond, try a bowl of
steel cut oats (and blueberries
for a double whammy!) and get
your oats on-it will do your body
good.
8 Cabbage patch. Actually any-
thing in the brassica family will
do the trick. All of these cabbage

9 Soup's on. A study at Baylord
College of Medicine, found that
people who ate a bowl of soup
before meals lost more weight
than those who didn't. Make sure
you're eating veggie-filled, broth-
based soups though -- cream
soups will just add to your girth!
10 An Apple a day. Or make
that an apple per meal! Research
from the State University of Rio
de Janeiro discovered three small
apples a day will satiate (from the
'pectin and natural fruit sugar)
and help people eat less at each
meal with the result being a boost
in metabolism. Can't beat that!

County opened to traffic on Mon-
day, Aug. 18, five days ahead of
schedule.
The newly constructed 48-
foot-wide concrete bridge, which
replaces a 20-foot-wide structure,
enhances safety and improves the
flow of traffic.
It also accommodates all sizes
of vehicles and removes restric-
tions to commercial trucks previ-
ously prohibited from using old

When FDOT awarded the $1.4
million contract to Pittsfield Con-
struction, the department made


the new bridge open to traffic
on or before Monday, August 18,
which is the first day of school.
"We are very pleased with our
contractor's hard work and equal
commitment to building the new
bridge on schedule during the
summer months," said FDOT Dis-
trict One Secretary Stan Cann.
"This project has been a pri-
ority for both the county and the
department.

lied Engineering & Testing under-

every step of the way from Glades

community," said Secretary Cann.
"We know it isn't easy for
anyone when we need to
close a bridge while construc-
tion's done."
The $1.4 million project in-
cluded building improvements
to approaches to the bridge, add-
ing paved shoulders, and placing
new guardrail and signs.
