Local communities meet with OTTED


County has great
location, but no
infrastructure
by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- "Things
are changing," said Don Upton,
workshop mediator.
Mr. Upton and Mary Helen
Blakeslee, Office of Tourism,
Trade and Economic Develop-
ment (OTTED), fielded ques-
tions, and took notes from the
August 27 meeting in Moore


Haven. State and local govern-
ment officials or their represen-
tatives were present during the
community meeting with OT-
TED. The issues focused on how
Glades County can thrive after
United States Sugar Corporation
(USSC) sells its holdings to South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD). Other attendees
were business owners, farm-
ers, educators, retirees and resi-
dents. They voiced a commonly
shared view that the population
of Glades County does not have
a seat at the table when state de-
cisions are made that affect their


existence.
Glades and 15 other south
central counties will have to foot
the bill for a $1.75 billion deal
between USSC and SFWMD, that
will be finalized in November.
These counties are served by SF-
WMD, and their property taxes
may be used to leverage bonds
to raise the money.
The hope of an industrial dis-
tribution center, or inland port,
built in the south Lake Okeecho-
6ee area, would replace jobs
and businesses lost with the shut
down of sugar operations. It
could be a central core of ware-


houses and supporting business-
es. The railroad lines and trucks
can carry freight from the inland
port complex to both coasts and
northward up into the state.,
No one yet knows if this will
be put on hold until water man-
agement puts an Everglades
flow-way revival plan on the
books, or if Glades County would
even be considered for the port
project. Many are concerned
that Florida Crystals, western
Palm Beach County, has a jump
start on the project because the
company has already begun
the lobby process to influence

The probable buy out of the nation's largest sugar producer has added extra hours to the work load of residents and

officials. One factor in Glades
County's favor is that the indus-
trial complex, if built in western
Palm Beach County, intrudes on
the proposed restored flow-way
desired by environmentalists and
Governor Crist.

Beck, choosing a site in Glades

Bridge on C.R. 720
closed for repairs
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- The
county meeting of August 25
covered many agenda items in-
cluding panther dispersal zones,
overdue library book collections,
water management pumps, and
a closed bridge.
There \\as a public hearing for
approval to transmit to the De-
partment of Community Affairs
(DCA) the request of American
Prime II, LLC that would change
1179.47 acres from Ag/open,
commercial and institutional to
residential. The proposed com-
munity would be located along
the Caloosahatchee River,,east of
Port LaBelle; and would have 624
dwelling units with a marina.
Stephen Brown, Conservancy
of Southwest Florida, questioned
the adoption of changes to the
future land use map; because
he believed the documents un-
der consideration at the meet-
ing were different than what
had been published to inform
the public. Under scrutiny was
a panther dispersal zone that
connects their breeding popula-
tion south of the Caloosahatchee
River with territory north of the
river.
According to Pete Quasius,
Audubon Society, the 1179.47
acres is on the fringe of panther
habitat and the panther dispersal
zone was needed for the survival
of the species. The big cat breed-

New weir protects flow-way


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
A record drought followed by
a storm that brought record wa-
terfall is testing the limits of the
South Florida Water Management
District's flood control structures.
One structure was completed
just in time to prevent what could
have been a regional disaster.
A new weir protecting the
S-65E lock and spillway on the
Kissimmee River reached "sub-
stantial completion" on Aug. 3,
less than two weeks before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay flooded the area
with record rainfall.
The weir solved a problem
created by the storms of 2004
and 2005. The S-65E is the last
lock on the Kissimmee River
before it reaches Lake Okeecho-
bee. Due to the hurricanes, the
large volume of water passing
through the structure scoured the
river bottom, leaving a hole 20
feet deep and 200 feet wide. Left
unchecked, the condition could
have caused the water control
structure to collapse, which in
turn would have threatened the
stability of the water control struc-
tures upriver in turn.
Based on records that go back
to 1932, 2006 and 2007 were
the driest years on record. The
records show that in that same
time frame, Tropical Storm Fay
dumped the most water on the
area in a one week period.
Low water south of the S-65E
structure and record rainfall
draining south could have spelled
disaster.
But the new weir worked ex-
actly as it was designed, maintain-
ing a constant water level south


Okeechobee News/Katrina Elsken
The new weir south of S-65E lock and flow-way keeps the
water on the south side of the water control structure high
enough to prevent erosion of the river bottom and protect the
stability of the structure.


of the water control structure and
helping to absorb some of the en-
ergy of the rushing floodwater.
"During the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane season, we saw the highest
flow ever at this structure, and we
saw damage here with a scour
hole," said George Home, Deputy
Executive Director of Operation
and Maintenance. "With the lake
being so low, we were concerned
about future storms. The purpose
of the weir structure is to be able
to safely maximize the discharges
downstream.
"Without the structure, we
could only have opened the S-65E
a minimal six inches," he said.
"With the weir, we can safely
open it six feet."
This means they can safely
move water down the Kissimmee
River and into Lake Okeechobee
much faster. He said on Friday,
the flow was about 21,000 cubic
feet of water per second -- that's
about 164,000 gallons of water a
second. Without the new struc-


ture, had they been forced to
only allow minimal water out, the
massive upstream flooding could
have been catastrophic for those
in the Kissimmee River Valley.
Had they opened the S-65E
flood control structure to maxi-
mum capacity without the new
weir, the pressure of the water
could have collapsed the struc-
ture and in turn caused a domino
effect on other flood control struc-
tures on the river.
"If the structures fail, the water
will drain quickly," Mr Home said.
"But then we would have no way
to hold it and would face water
issues."
The water control structures
are necessary for "life as we know
it" in Florida, he said.
Project Engineer Kathy Col-
lins explained the construction
of the weir was fast-tracked and
was actually completed before its
original Aug. 17, deadline, thanks
to the construction crews, who
worked 'round the clock when

they poured the concrete.
The weir consists of round
concrete structures which cause
the water to flow to the center
of the channel, where a series of
underwater walls slows the flow
and dissipates some of the ener-
gy. The weir maintains a constant
water level on the south side of
the S-65E water control structure
so that water coming through the
structure at high speed does not
hit the bottom of the river with
enough force to erode away the
river bottom.
"If the weir had not been com-
pleted before Fay hit, the system
could have failed," she said.
The weir is the largest single
water control structure SFWMD
has ever built.
By Wednesday, water was
coming through the S-65E spill-
way at a rate of 14,000 cfs or
about 100,000 gallons a second.
Mr. Horne said they expect high
flows for about two weeks, as
the Kissimmee River Valley recov-
ers from the Tropical Storm Fay
flooding.
"There is still a lot of flooding in
some areas," he said. Water from
Orlando south drains through the
Kissimmee River.

God and "Gay Rights!"


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Last week a major political
party made it known in no uncer-
tain terms that it supported "Gay
Rights" and "A Mothers Right To
Choose."
This week I will deal with the
first issue, "Gay Rights" and next
week I will deal with the second.
In the book of Genesis we
read:. "Now the men of Sodom
were wicked exceedingly and sin-
ners against the Lord."
Sodom was in the Jordan val-
ley near the Dead'Sea.
When Lot thought that Ca-
naan's pastures were not large
enough for his flocks, he chose
Sodom for himself and his family.
Abram was quite content to
remain in Canaan.
Lot's choice reminds us of
Adam's decision to eat the forbid-
den fruit.
Adam's penalty was death!


Lot was a righteous man, but
he chose to live in a cesspool of
sin (2 Peter 2:7).
The Lord knew the gravity of
the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah
(Genesis 18:20) and determined
to call these people before His
judgment bar.
Abraham was deeply con-
cerned about- his nephew, Lot,
and as he bargained, with the
Judge of all men, Abraham heard
God say that He would spare So-
dom if there were Ten righteous
men there.
Life in Sodorn for a godly man
and his family was filled with dan-
gers.
Men violated the bodies of one
another with or without consent.
In this regard Lot was clean.
He was no homosexual!
He had not violated another
and miraculously he had escaped
the lustful Sodomites.
Angels came to visit Sodom
and while they were guests in
Lot's house, men of Sodom came


demanding the use of the Angels
to sati ify the lusts of their flesh.
Even 'though they were blind-
ed, the Sodomite males beat on
Lot's door.
The angels were spared this
shame.
By God's power Lot and his
family were delivered.
When Lot heard the angelic
charge, "Escape for your life.
Don't look behind you." the Lord
rained brimstone and fire on So-
dom and Gomorrah (Genesis
19:26).
What does God tell us about
"gay rights"?
Homosexuals are human be-
ings (perhaps too much so). They
have a right to hear the gospel.
God sent angels to visit So-
dom.
We are bound by our commit-
ment to Christ to tell them Christ
loves them.
They have a right to know that
God does not regard homosexual
and lesbian as a alternate, life


style.
The Lord gave Adam a wife,
not another man.
The Lord gave Eve a husband,
not another woman.
. They have a right to know that
this kind of conduct is sin and that
God brings His severest judgment
on those who practice it.
They have a right to be warned
that the Lord will deliver His peo-
ple from the cesspools of this
kind of conduct when His people
call for help.
They have a right to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to pre-
pare to meet God face to face as
they attempt to explain why they
have ruined His image.
They have a right to know that
fornicators, idolaters, adulterers,
effeminate, abusers of themselves
with men (homosexuals) will not
inherit the Kingdom of God (I
Corinthians 6:9).
They have a right to repent!
These are the "gay rights" rec-
ognized by the Lord!


Just whistle while you work


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A friend of mine shared some
insights he uses to help him deal
with life's daily grind.
He stated, "You need to accept
that some days you're the pigeon,
and some days you're the statue.
Always keep your words soft and,
sweet, just in case you have to eat
them. Always read stuff that will
make you look good if you die in
the middle of it. Never put both
feet in your mouth at the same
time, because then you ,won't
have a leg to stand on."
Other words of advice: "Drive
carefully. It's not only cars that
can be recalled by their maker.
When everything's coming your
way, you're probably. in the
wrong lane. We could learn a lot
from crayons -- some are sharp,
some are pretty, some are dull,
and some have weird names, but
they all have to live in the same


box. A truly happy person is one
who can enjoy the scenery on a
detour."
I appreciated and even smiled
as I read some of his tips, but
when it comes to work and the
daily grind, I have seven heroes I
turn to.
They are miners.
They work in their mine all day
long. They start each day sing-
ing, "Heigh ho! Heigh ho! It's off
to work we go!" and while they
work they whistle and sing, "Just
whistle while you work!"
Sleepy, Doc, Dopey, Happy,
Grumpy, Sneezy, and Bashful
are just cartoons, but these guys
seem to have it all together when
it comes to work!
They are doing something they
enjoy, something they believe is
important, and they get pleasure
out of their work.
It's not just a paycheck.'
They sing out, "We dig, dig,


dig in our mine the whole day
through, to dig, dig, dig, is what
we like to do!"
Would that we could all derive
as much'pleasure and satisfaction
from our work as do the seven
dwarfs. Would that we all could
share their attitude about' oir. la-
bors!
I have known people who
shared, "I go to work every morn-
ing and I endure it." Or, "I am just
there for the paycheck."
When I hear things like that, I
think about how fortunate that I
am.
I feel called to mywork. If truth
be known, I would probably do it
even if I were not being paid.
But even still, there are days
when I don't want to come to
work. There are days when I'd
rather be somewhere else. Yes,
there are some days even the pas-
tor doesn't want to get up and
go to work because work can be


hard, and work can be frustrating,
and working can be tiring.
I think our faith tells us that al-
though no job is perfect, there are
ways to get more meaning and
joy out of our work.
. Probably the most obvious
way is to realize that our work, no
matter what it is we do, touches
someone somewhere. Work is
about relationships; it is about
making life better for someone
beside us. This aspect .of work
may be hard to see in some jobs,
but I believe it is there nonethe-
less.
Our work takes on new mean-
ing when we see it as blessing
others. And if as Christians we
add a little bit of faith to what we
do for a living, we may discover
our work bringing us more joy
and less stress, more satisfaction
and less fatigue.
We may even. find ourselves
whistling while we work!


Labor Day reflections: The real work


+ By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Labor Day is past now. It has
come and gone:- slipped by the
last of the Summer holidays and a
reminder that Summer is gone.
As I think about "labor" .and
'work" I am reminded of a saying
that used to sit in a frame on my
windowsill; "Happiness is when
you do what is pleasing to others
and pleasing to yourself."
This is not "putting in time in
exchange for money" but being
fulfilled by the.work we do.
For many, the real "work" is in
being a good parent, serving in a
community organization, volun-
teering to help or to accomplish
something this pleasing.
This can be more taxing, more
demanding, more tiring than any
forty-hour week. it is work but it is
fulfilling that's real work.
A recent article spoke of peo-
ple who find themselves begin-
ning careers and not really feeling
as if they "fit" or "belong."
I've known that to happen to
clergy; pondering whether they
are "called" to work in the Lord's
vineyard or really fit for ministry.
Sometimes, the answer comes
later; when they explore, other
fields or find some other line of
work more fulfilling.
One of my classmates from
seminary heard that I had left a
ministry in alcholism and was
returning to a parish ministry. He
sent me a note saying "We always
wind up in parish ministry, that
must be where we belong!"


Looking back, I find that I al-
ways do "wind up in parish min-
istry" with its many wonderful
and different facets, places and
people, experiences and opportu-
nities. It's never been boring.
When thinking about the op-
portunity to take it easier, I imme-
diately, and instinctively feel, "No
Way!"
I've decided that retirement
will: have .to 'be forced on me;
there is too much to do, too much'
that is.;fascinating in the work-a-
day world where'I find myself in
my vocation ,of forty-plus years.
A reflection came to me as I
thought about this holiday and
my vocation; and everyone's vo-
cation too.
The Greek word for "worship".
literally means "The work of the
people."
We don't often think of "wor-
ship" as "work" (there are enough
jokes about the clergy and work
to make this point!), but it is our
bounden duty and our "work.".
The work comes when we
think about what' it is that we
are doing on Sunday morning or
whenever it is that we worship.
I try to take a few minutes be-
fore leading services to "worship"'
on my own; soon I will be busy
leading, reading, preaching, cel-
ebrating helping others and par-
ticipating too; but a moment of
silence to begin helps me reflect
on the work about to be under-
taken.
I think about the past week,
the last time I worshipped, I think
about what parts of that week
I can offer up to God; what was
accomplished and what remains


to be done, about the people I've.
encountered and whose lives
have touched mine and whom I
have touched..
My work is to offer it all up to
God; with all of the joys and sor-
rows, successes and failures, hap-
pinesses and sorrows, good and,
bad.
These are the things I will lay
at the foot of the altar and ask
God to correct, strengthen, bless.
I will ask for spiritual strength
for all present; that through our
service, the words we say, the
messages in the -:hymns, the
thoughts, that come when we're
distracted, the prayers said togeth-
er, the printed materials used, the
sermon that I will share that God
wil use all of it and by His work
and ours together at this special
moment, we will return to the
world refreshed, strengthened,
sustained to go out once more
and make the coming of His king-
dom a bit sooner.
Labor Day -Liturgy The Work
of the People Worship our real
work; putting all that we do in
God's context and reflecting on
'our part in God's plan for our la-
bor whateverit may be.
My work is also the work of
'all of the people; John writes
"The time is coming and has now
come when the true worshippers
will sorship the Father in spirit and
in truth (John 4;23)." that's our


work, that's our worship, that's.
what we're really about.

Barrel and The Bucket


ilbeck
y Democrat
y within hol-
ich other but
, any particu-
square miles,
r's gates that
cattle gates,


Our houses can't be seen from
the roads leading in or out from
our individual gates.
Yes, we are a ."gated" com-
munity but never akin to those in
outskirts of cities not too far dis-
tant from here. We have no inter-
com from gates to houses and of
course, no "little" structure for an.
on-duty guard.
We wouldn't have it any other
way. Some years ago one neigh-
bor, who seemed to receive more
packages 'n parcels than all the
others put together, decided that
something had to be done. Pack-
ages had been hung from his mail
box in plastic bags, or dropped
over the fence or gate in bags or
boxes regardless of the possibil-
ity of rain. So he.came up with a
novel idea that would work on its
own merit. He took a big feed bar-


rel or drum, cut one end entirely
out and mounted it to the fence
about shoulder high inside his
gate. Then he notified UPS, FedEx
and neighbors of the receptacle
that was ready and big enough to
receive "deposits" of all sorts (at
no charge!).
And once.in a while the ru-
ral mail carrier will leave a too-
big package in the, barrel which
keeps the neighbor from making
a 30-mile round trip to and from
the post office in the nearest town
which just happens to be in the
next county!
In days long gone there usta
be a post office in the area, along
with a school, a country store and
a cemetery. Now, however, and
for many years, they've all been
gone except for the cemetery.
Another neighbor decided on
a bucket receptacle, literally a
seven-gallon bucket that's bolted
to the entrance fence. And, of
course, it has a tight lid to keep
rain out. And going a step farther,'
to avoid having to' get out of the
vehicle to look in the bucket for
a possible "leaving", a pink fla-
mingo stands watch at the back
of the receptacle. Anyone who


leaves a "whatever" in the bucket
places the flamingo at the front of
the bucket as if to say, "Hello! Yes,
I have something for you."
Some years ago when this
bucket practice first began, sud-
denly one day a pink flamingo
appeared a-top the bucket. The
message was clear: "look inside."
The years flew by, flamingo did
his job, .but by and by began to
show definite signs.of wear... until
finally (being basically plastic) he
simply cracked up and fell apart.
Finally, St. Jude, being the Patron
Saint Of All Things Impossible, did
his job. One fine day, totally with-
out warning, a tall, young pink
flamingo flew in out of the blue
and now makes his permanent
home by the neighbor's bucket...
back of the bucket when there's
nothing within, right out in front
when there -is something within.
After all, he's a quick learner!
' We have had to devise ways
of accomplishing "whatever"
we need to out here in the back-
country. There are times when
we have to admit that some of
these whateverr" have been
an exercise in futility. At other
times, however, it's exciting to


think we've exercised our brains
to good advantage of us and our
neighbors.
In the meantime, a parcel of
land, also within these five square
miles, has been sold. Now a po-
etic woodland hose has been
built by hand with a two-story
work shop as big and gracious as
an English guest house boasting
a big sprawling porch, with com-
fortable rockers and an enchant-
ing view. These neighbors don't
live there full time yet but when
they do it'll be interesting to see
what clever idea they'll come up
with for receiving packages at
their gate. In the meantime, from
time to time, the nearest town pa-
per and various other printed ma-
terial is rolled up and stuck in the
long arm of the gate lock by one
neighbor or another.
We all know, much to the sor-
row of those who live here in the
back-country, that development
has encroached on similar areas
seemingly overnight at times.
However, all we can do is hope
we'll outlive such ruination... After
all, some things are not for sale.*

If you have an especially se-
rious wound, then you should
receive a tetanus booster within
five years of last vaccination. '
*If you sustain a wound or
deep cut that concerns you,
seek medical .attention. Medi-
cal attention is required to de-,
termine if a tetanus booster is
needed.
What is Tetanus?
Tetanus, commonly called
lockjaw, is a bacterial disease
that affects the nervous system.
It is contracted through a cut or
wound that becomes contami-
nated with tetanus bacteria.


The bacteria can penetrate even
a tiny pinprick or scratch, but
deep puncture wounds or cuts,
like those made by nails, knives
or barbed-wire, are especially
susceptible to infection with tet-
anus. Tetanus bacteria are pres-
ent worldwide and are com-
monly found in soil, dust and
manure. Infection with tetanus
causes severe muscle spasms,
leading to "locking" of the jaw
so that the patient cannot open
his/her mouth or swallow, and
may even lead to death by suffo-
cation. Tetanus is not transmit-
ted from person to person.


. Individuals deployed to work
on recovery efforts are encour-
aged to contact their primary
care provider prior to deploy-
ment if they feel they need -a
tetanus shot.

General News and Information


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

Pickett's grab seals win for Glades Central


Moore Haven wins
big, Glades Day loses
kickoff classic game
By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
BELLE GLADE Fred Pickett
could be called Mr. Clutch for
Glades Central.
For the second game in a row,
he came through when it mat-
tered most.
The junior wide receiver, who
caught the game-wJnning pass in
the Raiders' 54-46 win over Miami
Central this spring, helped the
Raiders pull off a 15-12 comeback
win over the Dillard Panthers on
Aug. 29.
Down 12-7 with just 1:08 left in
the game, the Raiders lined up for
a quick slant play.
On third down, junior quarter-
back Leron 'L:J.' Thomas made a
quick throw to Pickett in the end
zone for.a 7-yard touchdown.
It was Pickett's only reception
of the game.
"I was happy I caught it," Pick-
ett said after the game.
"It was open the whole way;
Coach (Jessie Hester) called the
right play.
"Dillard had no safety to cover
me, it was just me and the corner-
back," Pickett continued, as he
explained the play sequence.
"He played me man-to-man, I


did a quick release and Isaw L.J.
release the ball."
Though he bobbled the ball
after a Dillard defender hit him,
Pickett used his hand-eye coordi-
nation to secure that grab.
"It was clutch, no doubt about
it," Hester said the about game-
winning.play. "Dillard gave us a
look with an all-out blitz.
"We were trying to get the play
off, 'Dillard's cornerbacks kept
flushing out our quarterback,"
Hester continued.
"It was a great catch, Pickett
made the grab and stayed with
it."
Thomas ran the ball in for
a two-point conversion to put
Glades Central up by three points,
which proved to be the margin of
victory.
The junior quarterback, who
was 13-for-24 with two touch-
downs and two interceptions,
connected with Rantavious Woo-
ten on Glades Central's first play
of the game.
The Raiders' top receiver, who
orally committed to LSU hours
before the game, outran Dillard's
secondary for a 40-yard touch-
down early in the first quarter.
"Rantaviou s a tremendous
player, LSU is getting a great kid,"
Hester said. "He'll always have a
good ga~me from here on out."
This victory was, by no means,
an easy one for the Raiders.
Just a few plays before the


game-winning grab, it had ap-
peared Dillard would come out
victorious.
But after an apparent fourth-
down incompletion- from the
Raiders, the Panthers were flagged
for pass interference.
It effectively killed Dillard's
chances of pulling off the upset
win.'
Dillard couldn't get senior run-
ning back Trabis Ward into the
end zone, although the highly-
coveted back ran for 122 yards on
30 carries in the game.
."Glades Central is a team that
has a great tradition," Ward said.
"They'll make me better down
the line because running against
them, you have to get past a fast,
swarming group. Now I know I
can run against any defense."
Keith Frank, Dillard's head
coach, summed up the game for
his team.
"We're a good young team,
but we're still trying to 'find our
way," Frank said.
"Trabis is a great running back,
he did real good tonight.
"Glades Central has a great
program here," Frank continued.
"It just feels good for Hester to
come back and give to the pro-
gram.
"They got a homegrown prod-
uct coaching and I think he'll
do well," the Dillard coach said.
"The kids play well for Hester and
I wish him the best."


"" IN/Naji Tobias
Glades Central quarterback'LeronL'L.J-.' Thomas makes this nice run to end the third quarter
in the kickoff classic game against Dillard. He threw for two touchdowns and made a two-
point conversion in the Raiders 15-12 victory.

Moore Haven 34, Summit
Christian 13: Junior running
back Fred Hall led the Terriers
rushing attack as he recorded 14
carries for 134 yards.
Hall's top highlight came in
the first quarter, when he scored
Moore Haven's first touchdown
on a 65-yard run.
Dalton Britt, the team's senior
quarterback, accounted for two
of Moore Haven's touchdowns in
the game.
He threw one (6-for-17, 103

as well. .
Royal Palm Beach 21,
Glades Day 14: Bo Schlecter
threw for two touchdowns in the


game, both to senior wide receiv-

from Suncoast.
However, Glades Day's rush-
ing defense allowed 200 yards, in-
cluding a gatne-winning 60-yard
run from Javonte Green in the
fourth quarter.
What also hurt the Gators was
its own running game, as senior
Brandon Dean was out with a
pulled hamstring.
Nevertheless, Glades Day got
its first chance to see Calvin Tay-
lor in action.

back, who's the son of NFL star

Two years of

drought, one
week of deluge

underscore water

management chal-

lenges

West Palm Beach, Fla.
---Even as a two-year water
shortage and rainfall defi-
cit steadily dropped Lake
Okeechobee's water level
to an all-time record low of
8.82 feet on July 2, 2007, the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) was
strengthening its flood protec-
tion system with the largest
single water control structure
it has ever built.
The new weir protecting
the S-65E lock and spillway
on the Kissimmee River was
completed about two weeks
before Tropical Storm Fay
swept into South Florida. The
region's prolonged dry condi-
tions, which led to 4,630 wild-
fires in 2007 and threatened
water supplies for millions
of people, had just begun to
ease when the tropical storm
dropped more than 14 inches
of rain at some locations.
"We transitioned almost
overnight from managing a
water shortage to lowering
canals for flood protection
in advance of Tropical Storm
Fay," said SFWMD Opera-
tions Director Susan Sylves-
ter. "Florida's unpredictable
weather requires continual
balancing of those missions.
Our systems again exhibited
strong performance during
the storm because of our
continual preparation, main-
tenance and planning."
The District carried out
pre-storm preparations by
drawing down, canals to


make room for storing as
much storm water as possi-
ble several days before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay hit. During the
approximately six days Fay
slowly spun across -the state,
the following data were re-
corded across the region:
-An average of 7.59 inches
of rain fell throughout the Dis-
trict.
-Rainfall ranged from
about 5 inches in parts of
Miami-Dade County to more
than 10 inches in the Caloo-
sahatchee Basin and Hendry
County.
-Lake Okeechobee rose
more than 24 inches, to 13.63
feet as of August 26, up from
11.34 feet on August 19, as Fay
began to impact the state.
-The lake rose more than
two feet in a single week for
the first time in recorded his-
tory, based on records dating
back to 1931.
-The largest weekly rise
prior to Fay was about 1.7 feet
in October 1951.
SThe largest weekly rise
during the 2004 wet season
was about 1.5 feet.
I Stormwater runoff from
Fay is still flowing into the 730-
square-mile lake. The District
remains in contact with and
is providing data to the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, the
agency responsible for man-
aging the lake level.
Fay also swelled the rain-
fall total so far for the month
of August to 10.63 inches, ap-
proximately double the nor-
mal amount.
"This is only late August.
SSeptember is peak hurricane
season," said SFWMD meteo-
rologist Geoff Shaughnessy.
"And we're not even through
the wet season."
The District's operations
center and technical staff re-
main on alert and continue
to prepare the flood protec-


tion system for potential sum-i
mer storms. Another deluge
on the heels of Fay would
represent more water man-
agement challenges for the
District. The sheer amount of
rain from Fay in such a short
period of time triggered local-
ized. flooding, which. could
be exacerbated by another
storm. "
The total amount of wet
season rainfall remains un-
certain. Consequently, water
managers do not yet know
how much water South Flor-
ida will have in the system to
start the dry season in Decem.
ber. Based on records dating
back to 1932, 2006 and, 2007
were the driest back-to-back
calendar years on record, cre-
ating a combined rainfall defir
cit of more than 20 inches.
For that reason, the District
staff continues work on ayear-
round water conservation
plan. Successfully fostering a
strong ethic of conservation
will protect South Florida's
sensitive water resources and
help ensure a more sustain-
able supply of water for both
natural systems and people
throughout the year.

Thousands of fish die in Buckhead canal


Glades County cleans
up 7,200 pounds of
dead fish

By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
A massive fish kill in a canal
near the Buckhead Ridge Marina
was unfortunate, but not unex-
pected according to' Florida Fish
and Wildlife Commission offi-
cials.
As the area started to drain
from the record rainfall left by
Tropical Storm Fay (which hit'
Aug. 19), the BHR canals rose to
spill over the seawalls. There was
so much water South Florida Wa-
ter Management Officials brought
in extra pumps to lower the ca-
nals.
On Monday, Aug. 25, residents
started noticing dead fish popping
up in the canals.
BHR resident Ray Mullis said
he noticed dead fish in the ca-
nal behind his home on Sunday
and by the next-day the fish were
popping up by the thousands. Mr.
Mullis said he also saw evidence
of a septage spill with waste in the
water.
FWC biologist Don Fox ex-
plained the fishkill problem is a
common one in box cut canals,
which are only open on one end.


"Box cut canals have no circu-
lation," Mr. Fox explained. "When
we get a dry period followed by a
heavy rainfall, it's not unusual to
see a fish kill."
Mr. Fox said a heavy rain push-
es oxygen-depleted "dead" water
from drainage ditches and other
areas where decaying vegetation
takes all the dissolved oxygen out
of the water. When this oxygen-
depleted water hits the canal, the
fish are trapped and suffocate.
Fish out in the lake can swim
away from areas of low oxygen.
But fish in the box canals can't
swim fast enough to find an area
with sufficient dissolved oxygen.
"It's something that usually
happens with the first big rain-
fall," Mr. Fox said. "We call it the
first flush."
He said for this reason, devel-
opers are no longer allowed to
dig box canals.
Mr. Fox said rumors of a septic
tank accident that spilled waste
into the canal may be true, but
that would not have killed the fish.
With the record rainfall flooding
the area so quickly, it would not
be unusual for a septic tank to
overflow.
"One septic tank is not going
to do it," he said. He added, how-
ever, that a septic spill could have
contributed to the problem.
"Anything that is decaying pulls


dissolved oxygen out of the wa-
ter," he said. "Septage is decaying
matter."
Mr. Fox said anyone who
throws yard clippings or other
waste into the canals creates the
same problem, as any decaying
matter will reduce the amount of
dissolved oxygen available for the
fish.
"Grass clippings or anything
else that is going to break down is
going to absorb oxygen," he said.
Mr. Fox said FWC has reports
of fish kills in canals throughout
the area this week, "anyplace
canals filled with drainage from
large areas."
Glades County Manager Wen-
dell Taylor said the county re-
moved 7,200 potinds of dead fish
from the BHR canals.
"We cleaned up all we could,"
he. said. "It was a huge kill. There
were all different types of fish."
He said they asked the State
Health Department and DEP for
help in determining what caused
the fish kill.
"We were told it was oxygen
depravation," he said.
Mr. Taylor said they issued
warnings to area residents not to
eat fish from those canals.
*"My biggest concern is if some-
body were to try to eat these fish,"
he said. At the height of the fish
kill, he said it was reported that

Thousands of dead fish floated in Buckhead Ridge canals on Tuesday. According to FWC of-
ficials, the fish were suffocated by oxygen-depleted water which drained into the canals due
to the flooding from Tropical Storm Fay.


someone was trying to collect
floating fish.
"We are warning residents,
don't eat the fish from waters
around Buckhead Ridge," he
said.
County officials are aware of
the problem with low dissolved
oxygen levels in the canals after
a heavy rain, he said. They even
used the fire trucks to try to aerate
the canal water, pumping it into
the truck and'shooting water high
into the air over the canal.
"I have my own fish ponds at
home. I kn6w you have to aer-
ate," he said.


Mr. Taylor said he has heard
the rumors of a septage spill, but
he doesn't think the problem is
with the water itself.
"Would I drink it? Of course
not. I wouldn't drink water from
any canal," he said.
' Buckhead Ridge residents get
their water from Okeechobee
Utility Authority, and OUA's filter
and disinfectant. system meets
DEP standards,.Mr. Taylor said.
He added that on Monday be-
fore the storm hit, Glades. County
issued a warning to county resi-
dents with well water.
"When the storm began, we


put out a boil water notice for all
of Glades County for everyone
on wells," he said. "There is a
concern about contamination if
flood water enters into your well
head."
He said the county also ad-
vised parents to use bottled water
to make baby formula, and pro-
vided bottled water for those who
need it.
Much of the rural county de-
pends on wells, he said. Only
Buckhead Ridge, Moore Haven
and Lakeport residents are on
" water systems.

Governor Crist requested that all
counties be declared as disaster

counties continue to recover from
the effects of Tropical Storm Fay,
and they need and deserve the
federal government's assistance
in this regard.
Furthermore, I urge you to
address the temporary housing
situation for my affected counties.
My constituents continue to suffer


from Fay's effects, which have al-
ready caused historic flooding and
damage throughout my Congres-
sional district. As Fay continues to
cause widespread damage and
the impact of the storm is fully re-

I would appreciate your timely


attention to my request. I stand
ready to work with federal entities
as they provide critical assistance
to the residents of my Congres-

Clewiston Tigers Trumped by King's Academy


Clewiston traveled to West
Palm Beach on Friday for their
2008 Kickoff Classic against the
Lions of King's Academy and
were beaten 29-8.
The preview contest showed
two clear points: Those being
that the Class 2A Tigers are in a
rebuilding season with a lot to
learn and the Class 2B Lions have
a very good football team.
Throughout the game, the Ti-
gers were extremely weak on of-
fense and unable to mount any
serious drive on the night.
The Tiger defense played hard
at times but was outclassed.
Clewiston managed but. 29
rushing yards on 26 attempts.
Senior quarterback Isandro Mar-
quez showed significant improve-
ment on his passing skills from
the previous year, completing 3 of
5 passes for 22 yards. But he was
also sacked 3 times while in a pass
formation due to breakdowns in
pass protection blocking.
King's Academy rolled up
162 yards rushing on 39 carries.
Quarterback Mike Miller hit on 5
of 9 passes for a total of 133 yards,
with two long completions of ,45
and 48 yards.
The Tigers' only first half score
came when the Lions' were in


punt formation and snapped the
ball through the end zone for a
safety.
The safety was set up after
Tiger Darris Hughes reeled off an
84-yard kickoff return to the Li-
ons' 8-yard line.
But three short rushing at-
tempts and an incomplete pass
turned the ball over to King's
Academy at their 3-yard line.
The Tiger defense held after
giving up one first down and the
punt snapped sailed way over the
punters' head.
Trailing at the intermission
20-2, Clewiston came out and
showed some spark.
Defefisively, the Tigers were in
their best form of the night in the
opening second half series by the
Lions.
Senior defensive end Adam
Trevino made several crushing
tackles and linebackers Dillon
Irey and Leonard Newton were
also on the prowl.
King's Academy tried a fourth
down conversion pass and New-
ton intercepted and returned the
ball down to the 4-yard line.
Three plays later, Marquez
rolled out to pass, found no open
targets, pulled the-ball down and
scooted around the corner for the


touchdown.
The Tigers went for two points
and the rushing attempt failed.
But, the Lions came back and
drove down to the Tiger one-half
yard stripe before they were held.
The Tigers had two running
attempts that netted only 3 yards
before Marquez was sacked in
the end zone for a safety.
'First year Tiger Head Coach
Joe Roth knew prior to the con-
test that this was going to be a
challenging season.
He said, "We've just got so
many kids who have no varsity
experience and some who have
been out of football for two and
three years. We've got to ana-
lyze our mistakes and learn from
them."
The Tigers travel to Plantation
on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. non-
district contest with American
Heritage, a perennial Class 2A
powerhouse under Coach Byron
Walker.

Blue Devils suffer heartbreaking defeat


Pahokee loses 27-
point fourth quarter
lead in 48-47 loss

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MIAMI "We blowed it man,
we blowed it man," cried Jac-
quan Bentley, a Pahokee Blue
Devils lineman.
Many players were inconsol-
able after losing 48-47 to Olive
Branch, Miss. in the Miami Sports
kickoff classic game, presented
by Nike Football.
The game was played on Sat-
urday, Aug. 30.
It was devastating enough that
Pahokee blew a 27-point lead in
the fourth quarter to a mighty Ol-
ive Branch team.
But with 19.7 seconds left in
the game, it appeared that the
Blue Devils took the lead back, en
route to a victory.
On a third-and-inches play
from the Olive Branch 31 yard
line, Nu'Keese Richardson: threw.
an open pass to De'Joshua John-
son in the end zone.
When he caught the ball, it
looked like, according to this
reporter's picture, that he was
in-bounds after making the end
zone grab.
But referees disagreed, ruling
it an incomplete pass as they said
it was out of bounds.
"That call was unfair because
the middle judge made the call
andcdidn't even ask the side judge
about the touchdown catch,"
Johnson, explained after the
game.
Johnson, who would have had
87 yards on three receptions and
two touchdowns, finished with
two receptions for 56 yards and a
touchdown.
"I did that so I could have both
feet in the end zone," the junior
wide receiver continued. "And I
think it's unfair that the play cost
us the game."
Willie Hickman, a senior de-
fensive back, agreed.
"I feel that the refs took this
game away from us," Hickman
said after the game.
According to higihschool rules,
a player only has to have one foot'
in-bounds in order for it 'to be
ruled a catch. .
But that was..onl\ pari o(f th&.
fourth quarter dramatics that hap-
pened during the wild contest.
After Curtis Daley's 1-yard
rushing touchdown with 40 sec-
onds left in' the third quarter, it
seemed, that Olive Branch was
ready to mail it iri after trailing 47-
20.
But in little more than 10 min-
utes in the final quarter, Olive
Branch scored four touchdowns,
with most of the drives beginning
in Pahokee territory.
Olive' Branch .; quarterback
Clirt -Wilson scored two rushing
touchdowns in the fourth (three
overall), highlighted by a 15-yard

play fake that the entire Blue Dev-
ils defense bit on.
It had appeared that Wilson
was going to either make a pass
attempt or hand it off to some-
one else, but he hid the ball in his
possession as he raced to the end
zone virtually untouched.
That score came with 1:46 left
in the game, giving Olive Branch
its first lead since the second
quarter.
"It was just a great comeback,
it says a lot about our kids," said
Scott Samsel, the Conquistadors
head coach. "Some breaks went
our way in the fourth quarter and
we made the most of it.
"Pahokee's a: great football
team and they have a lot of ath-
letes," Samsel continued. "A lot of
good football is played in Missis-
sippi and in the country."
Olive -Branch had 312 total
yards against Pahokee's vaunted
defense, many of which came in
the fourth quarter.
Blaze Thompson, Pahokee's
head coach, blamed himself for
the decision to rest all the starters
in the middle of the third quarter.


soon," Thompson said. "Conven-
tional wisdom says if you're up by
27 points, you take your starters
out and put in the second team.
"You have to take into con-
sideration that the game was
crawling in the fourth quarter,"
the Pahokee head coach contin-
ued. "The clock was moving at a
snail's pace."
After looking at the picture of
Johnson's apparent game-win-
ning touchdown, Thompson said
that the call was questionable,
but decided not to make any ex-
cuses for the loss.
"We just subbed in our players
too soon," Thompson said.
Richardson, who was Paho-
kee's starting quarterback in the
exhibition game, finished 9-for-17
with one touchdown and one in-
terception.
He also had 16 carries for 132
yards and two touchdowns.
Vincent Smith, Pahokee's
starting running back, scored two
touchdowns early in the game as
he.finished with 17 carries for 135
yards.
Jarvis Byrd, who bobbled an
interception on Olive Branch's

Pahokee's Vincent Smith, who committed to Michigan the
day before the Aug. 30 kickoff classic against Olive Branch
(Miss.), runs for 57 yards on this play early in the game.

the small county's geographic

evident concerns of the audience.

Robert Giesler mentioned that
the board tries to encourage new
growth like this.
"It is a big development that's
going to put some money into
our county," Mr. Giesler said.
It was noted that adopted
changes to the land use plan
would be returned to the DCA for
review, and then brought before
the board again. The changes
were approved by the board with
a vote of three to one.
Mary Booher, librarian, in-
formed the board that Heartland

Citizens and their elected of-
ficials have been given no clues

Library Cooperative urges the
Glades County Public Library to
use the services of Unique Man-
agement, a collection agency. The
board's approval was needed to
arrange an agreement with the
collection agency.
"We need to be better stew-
ards of the county's money," she
said.
According to Ms. Booher, 583
patrons have overdue items total-
ing $10,952. A $10 collection fee
would be added to the overdue
fines for processing costs. She


were reminded of past ideas for
enticing new industry. These tar-
geted industries included health
care/science, building/construc-
tion components, niche manu-
facturing, logistics/distribution
and bio-fuels/energy. However,
no one knows how these indus-
tries will ever be lured into this
county without the foundation of
infrastructure; and with the regu-
lations required by the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs.

as clogged waterways have hin-


explained that amnesty had been
tried before, but it was a failure
due to the extreme damage of
many items. The agreement with
Unique Management was ap-
proved.
Gary Ritter, SFWMD Okeecho-
bee office, reported on nine
pumps in use at the Buckhead
Ridge locks which helped allevi-
ate the rising water levels in com-
munity canals. According to Mr.
Ritter, the new use of mufflers
on the pumps has reduced their
noise level and residents may as-


dered the county's ability to use
them as a means of commerce
and tourism, and ancient two-
lane county roads were never in-
tended for heavy truck caravans.
The remoteness and isolation of
Glades County has been difficult
for residents, considering many
opportunities and conveniences
have disappeared in past years.

tioned the perils of traveling a

mute to a job in another region,


sume they are not working. He
mentioned that the water level in
Lake Okeechobee was 13.5 feet
as of August 25, and no water
had been released from the lake.
However, due to heavy runoff into
the Caloosahatchee, the Ortona
locks was releasing water so it
would not back up in the city of
Moore Haven.
County manager, Wendell
Taylor, alerted the county to a
hazardous situation with Jack's
Branch bridge on the west end of
C.R. 720 in the Muse area. FDOT


or a four hour round trip for medi-
cal and dental services has been a
hardship on many residents. This
would also be a hardship that
could cause potential new resi-
dents and businesses to choose
another area for re-location.
Tommy Perry, chairman
Glades County Economic Devel-
opment, told OTTED representa-
tives that canal dredging and rail-
road preservation were important
for eco-tourism and freight tran-
sit; and that a natural gas line and
waste/potable water extensions


notified him of its deteriorating
condition which was assessed by
divers. The bridge will need to be
repaired immediately, and only
very limited local traffic may use
it. The FDOT has recommended
a vendor that can repair it as soon
as possible.

John Dyess profile


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County Dem.
Having been born and raised
on a 90-acre homestead in this
area, I grew up in a rural envi-
ronment. I worked with my fa-
ther Earl "Gator" Dyess, Jr. and
my brothers Jed and Justin. My
mother is Jo Dyess who opened
and still owns Stargazer Telecom
stores in and around LaBelle.
At age 15, I graduated from
Emergency Medical Technician
training at Edison College and
worked for Glades County EMS
as the youngest EMT in the state
of Florida at that time. In 1997 1
graduated from LaBelle High,
then went on to Edison College
and graduated from the Para-
medic Program in 1998,at age 18.
SIworked for Glades County EMS
for 8 years serving the people in
our community.
Currently I work as a Paramed-
ic for Highlands County Emergen-
cy Medical Services where I'm
responsible for an ambulance,
station and on site management
of medical trauma scenes. I am
married to my wife, Anna, and we
are proud to have a new daugh-
ter, Emma.
I hope you will help me to
become your next Supervisor of
Elections. If elected I pledge to
run the office with honesty and
integrity. I will promise fair and
honest elections within Glades


County with transparency for
all voters. I will actively conduct
voter registration for all political
parties and attempt to register
the youth of our county when
they become eligible. I would like
to work closely with the Glades
County School Board, advising
students of their rights, obliga-
tions and responsibilities when it
comes to voting in this, the great-
est country on earth, the United
States of America.
It's extremely important for
young people to understand the
sacrifices our forefathers endured
to make every vote count in our
democratic society. I will ensure
that you will know when to vote,
where to vote, and that through
the transparency of the voting
process, you will come to know
that your vote counts.
It will be an honor and privi-
lege to serve you, the-people of
Glades County.

and attentive staff right here at home, but to serve you even better,


we have made a few changes:

decrease waiting\time. Under
the direction of an Emergency

assistants are able to evaluate,
treat and discharge patients
