Reorganize the
tackle box and tune
up your boat motor

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- Recently,
Lake Okeechobee water levels
have risen dramatically from
about ten feet to over 15 feet af-
ter runoff from the heavy rains
of Tropical Storm Fay filled the
shallow basin. Anglers now have
access to the lake. Let the fish


beware.
Small businesses owners like
fishing guide services, marinas,
and bait and tackle shops have
had a rough two years. Some of
those businesses closed down
due to the extreme drought cov-
ering south central Florida. Lake
Okeechobee shrank, and most
of it could not be seen unless
you flew over it. Sport fishing
was dismal, and the politics of
water wars put a dry rot over the
area.
That was then, but now it is
time for bass anglers to open up
the tackle box and pull out the


top water buzz baits and frogs,
according to David Dannen-
hauer, Mickey's Bait and Tackle
Shop. He explained that the new
volume of water has given the
bass a-larger territory to forage,
and they are coming in from the
open lake into the outside grass-
line. The water is abundant and
they can see enticing bait. An-
glers should check out the fresh,
new areas and return to the older
spots of two years ago.
"For the last three or four days
we've had some red hot bluegills
with a few shell crackers al the
Moore Haven spill was," said


Mr. Dannenhauer. Seventy-five
to 100 people were bank fishing
for bluegill along the spill way.
He mentioned that the bait of
choice are crickets, grass shrimp
and worms, and that continued
pan fish activity fluctuated with
water releases.
Catfishing has been fine
along the Caloosahatchee River
with several batches of channel
cats landed in the last couple
of weeks. Catfish can also be
caught in the rim canal out of
Uncle Joe's Marina near Moore
Haven off C.R. 720 in eastern
Glades County.


Snook season currently
opened up, and even with the
water releases it has been. slow,
according to the bait shop
owner. Most are caught farther
down the river starting at Lake
Hicpochee westward, especially
at the cuts and pipes.
Speckled perch activity is
slow, but the experts are sure to
report when the specks return to
traditional spots.
Soft shell turtles have been
collected fairly well. There have
been no reports on frog harvest-

Community news


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- The
Glades County public library
will be closed for two to three
weeks beginning Sept. 19. The
library has recently joined with
Heartland Cooperative and the
closure is necessary for install-
ing computers, computer pro-
grams and new procedures.
On Sept. 12, the Buckhead
Ridge Locks on the northwest
bank of Lake Okeechobee
were opened to the Pearce
Canal, which provides access
to the big lake. The locks were
closed for over two years due
to severe drought. Tropical


Storm Fay and remnants of
Tropical Storm Hannah replen-
ished shrunken Lake Qkeecho-
bee, and residents can explore
the new water. They hope the
bass will explore the new wa-
ter, too.
The clubhouse in Palmdale
serves as a multi-purpose cen-
ter for community meetings,
the fire department, church
services and as a headquarters
during emergencies. The club-
house had been in physical de-
cline and its rest rooms were in
need of renovation. The county
has recently finished revamping
the rest rooms and Palmdale
residents are pleased with the
fresh look of the facilities.

There is an issue in the
Horseshoe Acres neighbor-
hood off of S.R. 80, which
involves the- cleaning of a ca-
nal which serves as a county
easement. An adjoining prop-
erty owner has experienced fre-
quent flooding which may be
contributing to the creation of
a "wetlands" where historically
there may have been none,
according to maps of 25 years
ago. Maintenance crews have
experienced first-hand opposi-
tion to cleanup efforts, and the
county will do legal research to
find who has authority over this
easement/canal.

A community
profile of Gary
Ritter

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- South
Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has played
a major role in the lives of
Glades County residents. Re-
cently, Gary Ritter, Okeechobee
service center director, has at-
tended many community and
county meetings in order to lis-
ten to local people. Some may
wonder "who is that guy from
SFWMD?" Mr. Ritter has fur-
nished answers for community
profile questions.
Where were you born and
raised?...I was born in Niagara
Falls, New York and moved to
Florida when I was 11, so I con-
sider myself more of a Floridian
since I've lived here for more
than 44 years of my life.
What would you like to
say to the residents of Glades
County?...Let me start out by
saying I really like the people of
Glades County, because they're-
honest and they tell it like it is.
I know the district is not the
most popular agency in these
parts, but I know the people
of Glades County are going to
tell me why without beating
around the bushes. I admire
that. If I know what bugs them
then I at least have a chance in
attempting to fix it. With that
said, I want the residents of
Glades County to know I work
for them within the district and
as such I also want to see the
community grow in a success-
ful way. If they're successful
as a community, I'm success-
ful in doing my job. With that


in mind, growth is a long term
commitment from everyone,
which involves a lot of hard
work and sacrifice, something I
am willing to commit to as long
as I'm in this position. They can
count on getting a straight,
honest answer from me even if
it isn't what they want to hear.
Knowing the people in Glades
County, I think they appreciate
honesty regardless of the mes-
sage.
Where have you lived and
attended school in Florida be-
sides the Okeechobee area?...
My family first moved to Titus-
ville when my dad was hired on
with IBM. He worked at Cape
Kennedy during the days of the
Apollo space program. When
the program was phased out he
was transferred to Raliegh, NC,
much to the disappointment of
my mom and me. Fortunately,
within five months we were
quickly returned to Florida
when IBM began staffing their
computer manufacturing plant
in Boca Raton. I graduated from
Boca High in 1972, and at that
time Boca was not much larger
than Okeechobee is today. I
went off to college in Tampa for
my first two years and got my
associate degree in biological
sciences from the University of
South Florida. Because I shifted
my major, I transferred to the
Universtiy of Florida in Gaines-
Sville and received my bachelor
degree in the School of Forest
Resources and Conservation in
the field of ecology and wildlife
biology in 1977.
After graduating I spent a few
months in Jacksonville, Florida
sending out resumes and work-
ing at a sporting goods store
before I moved to Okeechobee
in November of 1977. At that
time the SFWMD and the Flor-

West Palm Beach-In re-

Florida Water Management Dis-

emergency water restrictions to
provide agricultural, commercial
and recreational facilities more

so far between July and Septem-
ber.
The emergency water restric-
tions were implemented to pro-
tect, public water supply amid a
record-breaking drought and wa-
ter shortage that began in 2006.
In January 2008, the District
implemented one-day-a-week
watering restrictions region-wide
for the first time in the agency's
history, based on the extreme
water shortage conditions and a
continued rainfall deficit of close
to 25 inches.
The restrictions were later
modified to two-day-a-week wa-

these decisions on the status of
the region's water resources.
"The Board's action was. prudent
given the improved conditions,"
said Eric, Buermann, SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman.
"This will help alleviate some of
the challenges faced by agricul-
ture, business and recreational
facilities while still' maintaining a
conservation ethic and recogniz-
ing that residential .landscapes
have benefited from the summer
rainfall pattern."

Those plans are required by
the SFWMD before Water use per-
mits are approved.
Two-day-a-week residential
landscape restrictions remain in
place. For residents, the deluge
from Tropical Storm Fay and wet
season rainfall means lawns do
not need irrigation. Irrigating on
two days or less is sufficient to
keep lawns healthy.
The residential irrigation mea-
sures do allow more water for
new plantings; they do not im-
pact vehicle washing, boat rinsing
or pressure cleaning.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the restric-
tions but are encouraged to con-
serve water voluntarily. Conserva-

SFWMD Strengthens Pubhe Assurances


District takes further
steps to protect
public investments
The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
is implementing initiatives to
strengthen the public process
and safeguard public investments
while negotiating.'the potential
acquisition of the land and assets
of United States Sugar Corpora-
tion in an historic effort to revive
and restore America's Everglades.
The initiatives are specifically de-
signed to address the significance
and considerable investment of
this River of Grass restoration op-.
portunity.
The first initiative calls for an in-
dependent review of the potential
United States Sugar Corporation
transaction by an external group,
of financial experts to ensure val-
ue for this investment and a fair
price for South Florida taxpayers.
The District has selected the Duff.
& Phelps Corporation to provide
what is known as a "fairness opin-
ion" on the proposed acquisition.
The New York-based firm, which
provides independent financial
advisory and investment banking
services, will deliver an opinion as
to whether the transaction is fair,
from a financial point of view, to
public stakeholders.
The Duff & Phelps group will
scrutinize appraisals,.property and
all aspects of the transaction and
provide an independent report 6n


the value of the acquisition. The
group's findings will become part
of the public record.
"These actions. reflect this
Board's ongoing commitment to
safeguard the taxpayers of South
Florida," said Eric Buermann,
.SFWMD Governing Board Chair-
man. "These steps provide the
financial assurances that our citi-
'zens expect and deserve as the
District negotiates this large, com-
plex and important purchase. In-
dependent reviews add another
layer of expertise to guarantee
that the public receives the great-
est return on its investment."
A second initiative, previously
in use,. amends and strengthens
a "Beneficial Interest and Disclo-
sure Affidavit" to provide further
safeguards for taxpayers' monies.
It will be used for all land acqui-
sitions by the District to support
environmental restoration, water
quality improvements and flood,
control efforts.
The strengthened "Beneficial
Interest and Disclosure Affidavit"
identifies anyone who may ben-
efit from a land purchase with the
District and requires disclosure
of their interest in the transaction
in writing. Florida law already re-
quires parties who have a 5-per-
cent or greater interest to disclose
that information in any land ac-
quisition negotiations with a state
agency.
The District now requires any-
one-regardless of the percent-
age of their ownership stake-to
disclose their interest. The District


also now .requires anyone who
stands to profit if a land purchase
succeeds to disclose that gain to
the public. The SFWMD Govern-
ing Board directed the District to
take this additional step to ensure
that all public dollars invested
during a land acquisition are uti-
lized only for acquiring land and
not on 'consultant's fees or other
undisclosed costs, with the ex-
ception of attorneys' fees.
"Acquiring land for the benefit
of the environment and the peo-
ple of South Florida is essential
to the District's mission," said .the
SFWMD Director of Land Acqui-
sition Ruth Clements. "These ini-
tiatives will further ensure that all
public money set aside for land is
spent directly on the land itself.",
The affidavit wording' and for-
mat .was approved today by the
Governing Board. Its use is ef-
fective immediately for all land
acquisitions involving the District.
A copy of the affidavit is available.
.here: Beneficial Interest and Dis-
closure Affidavit.
"Together, these initiatives will
further protect taxpayer funds,
enhance accountability and trans-
parency and strengthen the Dis-
trict's commitment to upholding
and sustaining the public trust,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle.
As part of 'a historic plan to
revive the River of Grass, the Dis-
trict is negotiating the acquisition
of as much as 187,000 acres of
agricultural land owned by the
'United States Sugar Corporation.


The vast tracts of land in the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area would
be used to reestablish a part of
the historic connection between
Lake Okeechobee and America's
Everglades through a managed
system of storage and treatment
and, at the same time, safeguard
the St.. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
rivers and estuaries.
Acquiring the enormous ex-
panse of real estate offers water
managers the opportunity and
flexibility to store and clean water
on a scale never before contem-
plated to protect Florida's coastal
estuaries and to better revive,
restore and preserve the fabled
River of Grass. The acquisition is
subject to independent apprais-
als, due diligence, financing and
approval by the District's Govern-
ing Board.
For more information about
this historic. Everglades restora-
tion opportunity, visit this District

ofgrass.

MOORE HAVEN FOOTBALL TEAM: I am curious why the coach
of the Varsity team is also acting like the coach of the JV team. I have
never seen a coach WHO wants so much control that he has to coach
both teams. If you ever go out and watch a practice you would see
that most of the JV team never even gets to practice any plays. How
will our kids learn and get better if they too don't get to practice the
plays? As far as the way he has been treating the girl on the team is
wrong. Why would he put her on the OL/DL. If you look you would
see that those.are all big boys. Why doesn't he put her with the receiv-
ers? Give her a chance she might surprise all of us. As for the other
boys on the team they too should be given a chance. But we all know
that when you live in a small town it's who you know, not how much
you know.
GLADES COUNTY: I live in Buckhead Ridge and after Fay went
through our little county, Glades County picked up all of the debris left
from Fay knowing there was pending storms coming on. And FEMA
gave money to Okeechobee, but all the way down 78 in Okeechobee
you see debris from the storm. It just seems funny, but what happened
to the FEMA money for picking up and cleaning the debris. If Glades
County can do it, Okeechobee can do it. And as far as mosquito spray-
ing, there are grants out for mosquito spraying and Okeechobee
sprayed once. Glades County sprays whenever needed.

Letters to the Editor


"Man pleads guilty in
County Commission-
er's theft"
First off, would this have made
headlines if it did not involve a
county commissioner or another
elected official?
How often do we read of the
sentencing of other Glades Coun-
ty criminals when the victim is
not a public official?
Was this a political ploy? One
newspaper editor informed me
that Whiddon's office submitted
it to them -- it was not solicited by
the newspapers. Whiddon knows
my husband has made a cam-
paign contribution to (and is sup-
porting) Tony Wilson for Sheriff
of Glades County.
I am the victim and the one
whose efforts led to the arrest of
Ronald Tracy Williams, who, by
the way, did not plead guilty to
the crime.
We had arrived home after
a week's vacation on March 24,
2007 about 9:30 p.m. When I real-
ized our home had been invaded
and articles were missing, I called
9-1-1 and Deputy Crosswell who
is assigned to my Ortona "zone,"
arrived within 10 minutes. He
examined the perimeter of my
home, found no evidence of any
disturbance that would indicate
a forced entry and he created the
offense report.
Investigator-Deputy Terrence
Deese was called and arrived
within an hour or so. He attempt-
ed to lift fingerprints from my
computer cover arid said he found
the diamond-shaped imprints of a
rubber kitchen-type glove. He too
looked around the premises and
took no more fingerprints.
During the burglary of our
home the perp removed firearms,
electronic computer equipment
and other personal items, some
discovered missing later when I
began carefully examining and
searching my office.
I expressed my suspicion of
Tracy Williams because of his
prior reputation and record and
because years before I had given
his disabled sister a key to our
home so she could feed my cats
when we were away from home
occasionally overnight. Some-


times she returned the key, and
sometimes she did not. She was
not feeding our cats while we
were gone in March 2007. But I
did not have the spare key that I
had given her because she had
not returned it the last time she
fed my cats.
On Monday, March 26, I con-
tacted Transunion and Experian
and requested that a Fraud Alert
be placed in my and my hus-
band's consumer credit files to
prevent the possibility of identity
theft because I was not sure ex-
actly what private documents and
information were compromised
in the invasion my home.
That action was the ultimate
reason the thief was caught.
He attempted to use my hus-
band's Discover Credit card and
in fact successfully used it at
the Citgo convenience store in
LaBelle (in Hendry County not
Glades) by using the card reader
at the gas pump and punching in
our zip code he well knew it -- he
is the son of our neighbor. No ID
was required so the fraud alert
did not kick in.
However, he proceeded to
Wal-Mart in Lehigh Acres (Lee
County) and he was unable to
use the card; Discover called us,
I called the Glades S.O. and after
about two weeks, Wal-Mart pro-
vided a copy of their video that
incriminated Tracy Williams.
The video showed when Tracy
Williams arrived in the parking
lot, when he entered the store,
when he attempted to use my
husband's credit card, and when
he left the store.
He was subsequently arrest-
ed a couple of weeks later. The
clothing he was wearing in the
Wal-Mart video was found in his
home. Also, evidence identified
from another theft in our neigh-
borhood was found in his home,
but, the investigator did not con-
fiscate those items even though,
they were identified by the other
victim.
Because the charges for bur-
glarizing our home were not
filed in a timely manner, he was
released with no bail, after a very
short incarceration.
About 4 months later, while he
was out awaiting trial for burglar-
izing our home, he was arrested


for another burglary in Ortona,
along with his partner in crime,
Julius "Gopher" Wright.
Tracy did not plead guilty to
the. burglary of my home. His
lawyer "bargained" for him us-
ing his testimony against Wright
as leverage. He pled "no contest"
to grand theft and "no contest" to
credit card fraud. His penalty was
finishing up a total of 364 incar-
ceration days for both crimes (he
is out of jail and at large now), he
agreed to pay restitution for the
amount our insurance did not
cover, four years probation, and
he cannot come on our property.
No doubt he quickly and easily
sold the items he stole from us in-
cluding (among other things) two
pistols, computer hardware (and
software) and electronic devices.
I assure you the street value was
much higher than the restitution
he has agreed to pay.
People, be warned. You must
be proactive in guarding your
home and your identity. For the
rest of our lives my husband and
I will be paying LifeLock to keep
a fraud alert and monitor on our
credit information.
Until you have been burglar-
ized and robbed, you cannot re-
alize how vulnerable you are and
how violated you feel.
After the offense report was
filed, nothing was done to identify
(much less apprehend) the perpe-
trator of this crime against us and
our home; we did not hear from
the Sheriff's Office again until I
called them about the Discover
card fraud.
You may have received, as
I had, the e-mail going around
about filing a fraud alert. I assure
you, it is effective.
The fraud alert I filed is the only
reason Tracy was caught. Nobody
"tracked him down." Wal-Mart
provided the evidence.

Local Sheriffs
What is it going to take to
get people to realize that Florida
Highway Patrolmen (FHP) do
not make good sheriffs. For some
reason, people think that they,
FHP, are the "elite" troopers of
the state, but nothing could be


further from the truth. The truth is
that they are only "highway ticket
writers."
They have some expertise in
accident investigation and with
the aid of radar, can determine
who is speeding and write the
appropriate ticket but they are
not "state police." Some states
do have state police who are
well trained and have jurisdiction
within the entire state on all Law
Enforcement matters, but not
Florida.
The three "sister" counties,
Okeechobee, Glades, and Hendry
have proven that Highway Patrol-
men do not make good sheriffs.
They have little or no administra-
tive skills, which is paramount in
the successful administration of
that office.
In all three counties, law en-
forcement has come to a virtual
standstill because the deputies
receive no direction from the
sheriff, who has become nothing
more than a "Figurehead" for the
office.
In fact, were it not for the au-
tonomy of the Deputies, nothing
would get done because they are
the ones really running the depart-
ment and making the decisions.
The sheriff is the highest paid
public official in the County, next
to the supervisor of elections.
Don't you think you should be
getting your money's worth from
this office?
Why would you pay some
one that much money to just sit
around and let his employees do
all the work and make all the de-
cisions? Don't you think it's time
to elect- a sheriff who has experi-
ence in all facets of Law Enforce-
ment?
Someone with leadership and
administrative skills other than
"writing tickets?"
Just ask yourself, and answer
fairly, what has the sheriff done
for my county? Just being a "good
ole boy" and allowing the local
gun club access to the gun range
isn't good enough.
It's your money, what do you
expect it to do for you?

Barbecue fundraiser
The Moore Haven FFA chapter
is trying to raise money to attend
the 80th Annual National Conven-
tion in Indianapolis, Ind.
SFive .outstanding members
were chosen to attend this week
long educational trip where we
will be listening to Rick Rigsby
and touring Purdue University.
The cost of this trip is very
expensive for us and though we
are holding our own fundraisers,
we still need help from outside
sources. On Sept. 21, a barbecue
is planned to help defray costs of
the trip. We are also accepting do-
nations. If you would like to help
with donations for this effort, we
thank you in advance and ask that
they please be dropped off at the
school or mail it to Phillip Cosby,
by Friday, Sept. 28, as to assist us
with our planning. If you have any
questions you can contact us at
Moore Haven High School.

Garden design
workshop offered,
design ideas
Sometimes when thinking
about your yard do you just feel
overwhelmed?
Sure, you want it to look nice
but you don't know where to
start.
Books and magazines talk
about this or that "design aspect"
and the job seems impossible.
And the number of plants
available makes it even more
confusing. You decide to forget
it.
But wait -- this workshop is
aimed at simplifying the steps to
garden design. A few good ideas,
a few Florida friendly plants, some
tips and you are good to go!
During the workshop you can
design your own space and cre-
ate a list of plants and features to
complement your landscape. Be
sure to bring the measurements
of your space. Leave with a plan
for your landscape and a free
Florida friendly plant.
The workshop is planned for
Tuesday, Sept. 23, from I until 4
p.m. or 5:30 until 7 p.m. at the
Okeechobee County Extension
Service, 458 Highway 98 North,
Okeechobee. Space is limited
and pre-registration is required.
Call 863-763-6469 to sign up.

Plan now for
November Lake walk
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 Pahokee
on Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee
on Nov. 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 rea-
son) 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.

a3.In iV llarII n .urcn 1, ews o/l .ll
My friend's old Volkswagen re-
quired more and more repairs as
it got older.
As the bolts would rust, every
now and then they would break
when it was being disassembled.
We had metric wrenches that
were the right sizes for working
on it, but no metric taps or dies to
replace the broken bolts.
Instead, we used what we had
on hand English S.A.E. taps and
bolts.
They worked fine and the car
ran great, maybe even better than
before we worked on it.
One day my friend sold the
car.
I wondered how long it would
be before the new owner called
to ask "What gives?"
It had to be taken apart and re-
assembled in a certain sequence
thereafter or there would be parts
left over and the car wouldn't
run.
Maybe his VW was among the
first "hybrid" cars in the country.
Combining two traditions and
sources got him where he needed
to go.
Throughout my ministry, I've
encountered people who regard


ries of the Old Testament heroes
and about the miracles that took
place in pre-Christian times, but
see that period only as only his-
tory.
This ignores the important
roots and heritage that we receive
from those of an earlier time.
The Lord made it clear that He
did not come to "abolish the Law
or the Prophets. I have come to
fulfill them (Matthew 5:17)."
The Lord's Prayer has been at-
tributed to the Jewish Midrash, an
Old Testament interpretation of
scriptures.
The Lord went to Jerusalem to
celebrate the Passover meal with
His disciples and it was to be His
"Last Supper" that has been cel-
ebrated ever since.
The Bible also tells us that "Be-
hold I make all things new (Rev-
elation 21:5)" but that doesn't
mean that newness is created out
of a vacuum.
Why should such things mat-
ter today?
While in Miami, I attended an
annual clergy conference hosted
by one of the older synagogues
each year.
The Jewish scholars who were
brought in were learned profes-


something known to many reli-
gious bodies and many faiths.
Persecutions rely of separate-
ness, differences; characteristics
that are seen in one group but not
another.
Sometimes there are jealou-
sies' involved, sometimes there.
seems to be something threat-
ening about another identifiable
group.
Was Christianity founded by
the Lord to be different, radically
different from its Old Testament
heritage, or was the Old Testa-
ment faith fulfilled and as one of
my professors used to say "raised
to the Nth degree"?
In reality, Christians may be the
first "hybrid" of faiths; combining
old and new, having parts that
were no longer the same but re-
fitted in a new way so that things
would run smoothly and get us
where we wanted to go.
Make no mistake about it; it is
still the same faith in God; now
presented to "run" more efficient-
ly and take us to our final destina-
tion.
I suggested that we are not of
a different faith; but a reformed
direction of the older faith; and
that being seen as such might be


The plea was that we honor
our heritage and what has been
given to us; and that we under-
stand each other as divisions of
something from God that we all
share in common.
We are not so many different
families as different members of
the one family.
Maybe that has something to
do with ending wars one day or
helping keep peace at home or
having people get along better
everywhere.
It doesn't keep us from believ-
ing what is revealed to us or limit
God's gifts to His people; may-
be it will help things run more
smoothly.
The old VW ran quite well and
never was confused for anything
but what it really was; just adopt-
ing some accommodations to
keep it doing its appointed tasks.
Probably it is still running; they
were reliable means of transpor-
tation.
Maybe it was a lesson from an
old "hybrid" to those who owned
it about. revisions and combina-
tions to take us where we need
to go.


Always and forever in the hearts of our youth


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It was a sad event what hap-
pened that day, that made so
many people go away. And it
kindled almost all the way down,
and still 5,000 lives have not been
found.
And Lord, be our children's
mentor help us teach them right
from wrong. And help us, Lord, to
still hold strong.
The above was part of a poem
written by then eighth grader
Kristin Way in 2002 in response to
what happened on Sept. 11,2001.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. I was im-
pressed with her and other youth
as we all came together and re-
membered.
People from all backgrounds,
from all races, from all politi-
cal affiliations, from all different
churches young and old, rich
and poor came together to re-
+ member those who had 'fallen;
and to hon6r the firefighters po-
lice, emergency service and mili-
tary personnel who served and
continue to serve in situations of
need in our communities and na-
tion. It was a time when the spirit
of patriotism was alive and flow-
ing as thanked God and remem-

bered these special people.
But what happens when we
stop remembering what once
was important to us? If we stop
remembering or stop sharing
what we remember, then future
generations might be uninformed
of significant things that shaped
our lives and theirs.
When Captain Peterson's
Clewiston High School Criminal
Justice Class talked about what
happened in September of 2001,
several of the students comment-
ed that they were in the fifth grade
at the time, and all they remem-
bered were that several buildings
went down. How soon we forget
when we don't continue to pass
on remembrances over the years.
The students undertook as a
class project to research the event
of the Sept. 11th tragedy. They
were visibly moved by the videos
they watched, but more ques-
tions arose as to why we stopped
remembering: or honoring all, of
the emergency service personnel
today like we did in the first years
following the attack. Good ques-
tion.
In response, the class decided
to put on a program to remember
and to honor our emergency ser-
vice personnel on Sept. 11 of this


Lighthouse Caf6
Gospel Concert
Please make plans to attend a
SPECIAL evening of music with
SPECIAL people to raise funds for
the Lighthouse Caf6 on Saturday,
Sept. 27, at 7 p.m.
The concert will be held at
Community United Methodist
Church, 401 S.W. First Street,
Belle Glade.
The Lighthouse Cafe has had
to reduce servicing a hot lunch
every day of the week to Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday do to an
increase of those needing a meal.
The increase in the cost of food
has also played a major role in the
reduction to three days a week.
Jeff Shadow from St. Peters-
burg, Fla., will be performing,
along with other local musical
groups.
The cost of admission is free


year. I was privileged to attend
this special program honoring
these "heroes" last week. More
touching than the moving presen-
tation based on the 31 words of
the pledge of allegiance and the
recognition of our firefighters,
law enforcement, and emergency
service people was the heart and
the spirit of these young people.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. With these
youth and others like them, we
have a hope and a future.
Something else that is impor-
tant to remember and pass on
to future generations is our faith.
How soon we forget when we
don't take time to remember or to
share with those around us. Jesus
Himself gave us some practices to
do "in remembrance of Him."
If we stop doing things in
remembrance or sharing our
beliefs, then future generations
might be.uninformed of signifi-
cant things that shaped our lives
and could affect theirs.
When we do things in remem-
brance, we bring to the front
burner thoughts and memories
of something or someone impor-
tant, and that importance is im-
printed on the minds and hearts
of our youth and children. In the


but a love offering will be taken
for the Lighthouse Caf6.
Please set this time, aside for
attending and supporting the
Lighthouse Caf6.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee

Bishop Dewane named to social Justice organizations


VENICE-Bishop Frank J. De-
wane of the Catholic Diocese of
Venice is serving on two impor-
tant social justice organizations
which have significant impact on
the lives of rural residents and im-
migrants in the United States.
After two years as a board
member of the National Catholic
Rural Life Conference (NCLRC),
a Catholic organization which
seeks solutions to critical issues
facing rural populations, Bishop
Dewane has been elected presi-
dent of the board.
He has also recently been ap-
pointed to the board of the Cath-
olic Legal Immigration Network
Inc. (CLINIC), a Washington,
D.C.-based group that works to
enhance and expand delivery of
legal services to indigent and low-
income immigrants.


Bishop Dewane.


Founded in 1923 the NCLRCis
charged with helping rural people
and farm families shape their own
destinies through spiritual, educa-


tional and advocacy assistance.
The organization also supports
local businesses that promote
sustainable community develop-
ment.
CLINIC was established in
1988 by the United States Confer-
ence of Catholic Bishops (USC-
CB) to support a network of 173
diocesan and community-based
immigration programs, many of
them in agricultural areas, in 48
states including Catholic Charities
USA Inc.
"I hope that my personal ex-
periences and my experiences in
dealing with social issues will as-
sist both organizations continue
to help people in the rural com-
munities throughout the United
States, especially during these
economic hard times," said Bish-
op Dewane.


Bishop Dewane, who brings
considerable personal and pasto-
ral experience with farm life and
social justice issues, can make a
difference.
Born and raised on a Wiscon-
sin dairy farm, he has retained the
basic lessons learned in a rural
childhood, especially an apprecia-
tion for life and the environment.
These experiences have helped
mold the Bishop into the man he
is today, and they have provided
the basis for his work for world
peace and justice.
Before becoming the spiritual
leader of more than 237,000 Cath-
olics in Southwest Florida, then-
Monsignor Dewane served for
several years as Under Secretary
of the Vatican's Pontifical Council
for Justice and Peace.
As Under Secretary, he carried


the Vatican's messages of social
justice and peace to conferences
and international conventions
across the globe on issues such
as environment and develop-
ment, women, racial discrimina-
tion, poverty, human rights, social
justice and water.
The need for assistance in ru-
ral and agricultural areas can be
shown in the most recent U.S.
Census- estimates, which state
that more than 8 million rural
residents live in poverty.
In Florida, more than 300,000
of the 1.2 million rural people live
in poverty.
These numbers, gathered pri-
or to the recent economic down-
turn, emphasize the importance
of having Catholic social service
organizations address these criti-
cal issues.


Another indicator of difficult
times is the unemployment rate
which is 6.1 percent in the Unit-
ed States, the highest level it has
been in five years.
However in some parts of ru-
ral America, the rate can be as
high as 15 percent.
Areas impacted by extreme
drought or extreme flooding have
been particularly hard hit in the
past few months.
Bishop Dewane is the spiritual
leader for the 10-county Diocese
of Venice which serves the Catho-
lic population of Southwest Flori-
da through 57 parishes, 14 Catho-
lic schools and other entities.

of the Diocese of Venice at 941-
486-4702.


Using Internet search engines


Diane Timmons
INIFlorida
Seniors use the Internet to
get information 'about lots of
subjects.
While the Internet is a vast
place, full of a billion or more
web sites, powerful search en-
gines help us find what we are
looking for.
Here are five well-known
search engines and what they
do best.
Google.com; good, all-
around comprehensive search
site; prides itself on its "white
space" with its home page un-
cluttered. Great for finding com-
mercial businesses. Is the search
engine of choice for most gene-
alogists.
Yahoo.com; more of a direc-
tory by topic; organizes informa-
tion into like categories. Study the
results, then refine your search.
Wikipedia.org; a free, open-
content, community-built ency-
clopedia with a million articles
as of March this year. It has no
advertising on its results pages.
It is available in dozens of lan-
guages.
Answers.com; a combination
of encyclopedia, dictionary, the-
saurus, and almanac all rolled
into one. -When I want the defi-
nition or spelling of a word, this
is where I go.
About.com; great for "how-
_i to" information .
SSearches have a better"out-'
'come when we follow some
smart searching techniques.
Enter your search words in the
white line where the cursor is
blinking. These simple search
techniques work especially well
with my favorite, Google.
Many beginning searchers
make the mistake of either being
too specific with their searches,


For

Seniors


;r irl.r *i-.-I.Jnlr i ,-"'.L Ia I 'C


or not specific enough. For ex-
ample, if you're looking for pizza
restaurants in Ft. Pierce, merely
typing in the word "pizza" will
not get you what you want -
it's not specific enough! Instead,
type in "pizza. Fort Pierce"; this
search will be MUCH more pro-
ductive.

Search Engine Math
Refine your searches using
the following techniques.
Use the "-" (minus) symbol
when you want a search engine
to find pages that have one search
word in them, but you need the
search engine to exclude olher
words commonly associated
with that search word.
You are telling the search en-
gines that you would like to find
pages that only have the words
"video," but exclude the listings
that include information about
"music."
This is a fast and easy way to
eliminate extra information and
narrow your search down; plus


you can do a string of excluded
words, like this:
Video -music -fight (yes, put
a space before the minus sign).
Now that you know how to
eliminate search terms, here's
how you can add them in, us-
ing the "+" (plus) symbol. For
example, if you have terms that
must be returned in all your
search results, you can place
the plus symbol in front of the
terms that you need included,
such as:
Football +nfl
Your search results would
now have both these terms in-
cluded.
Using the plus and minus
symbols is just a small part of a
successful Web search strategy.
Be as specific as humanly pos-
sible. Search engines are not
intuitive and will not be able to
figure out that when you type in
"jewelry," you actually are look-
ing for "handmade freshwater
pearl watches."
Using quote marks around
the phrase ensures that the
search engine will only give back
results where that exact phrase
is used.
Don't be timid about telling a
search engine specifically what
it is that you are looking for, and
using different techniques (in dif-
ferent ways) to get better results.
The old adage, "if you don't
succeed;, try, try again," works
with search engines.
Try several search engines
if the information retrieved just
doesn't give you what you're
looking for.
Happy computing.
We welcome questions and
suggestions for topics.

Displaying tobacco products



for sale in state of Florida


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Did you know that Florida law
prohibits customers from having
direct access to tobacco prod-
ucts?
What does that mean?
It means all tobacco products
must be behind the counter so
customers have to ask for them in
order to purchase them.
This gives the clerk the ability
and the responsibility to ask for
identification for age.
The legal age to purchase to-
bacco products in Florida is 18.
The next time you are in a
convenience store or at any re-
tailer who sells tobacco products,
check it out.
There are a lot of stores who
do not follow the law.
This seems to be especially
true when it comes to flavored
tobacco like grape, vanilla or
chocolate cigars. I have seen them
right in front on the counter.
How about you?
Check out the signs while you
are at a convenience store as
well.
The tobacco companies spend
over 13 million dollars every day
to attract new smokers.
The tobacco companies know
they have to attract new users
(to replace those who have quit
or died) and they also know for
the majority of people if you don't
start by age 18, you'll never start.
Who do you think the tobac-
co companies are marketing to
when they sell flavors?
Adult smokers usually have
their favorite brand and are not
interested in sweet flavors.
Teens are interested because
the flavors don't sound like they
would be as dangerous.


INI/Ashley Smith
Be wary of stores selling tobacco products where they are
easily accessible to minors.
All the poisons and carcino- Don't be fooled and don't let
gens are still there, they are just your teens be fooled!
masked by the sweet smell.


The issue of God and Global Warming


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Having just dealt with two hot
topics, "Gay Rights" and "Abor-
tion," I thought I might tackle an-
other one, "Global Warming."
The evidence clearly indicates
that our globe is experiencing a
warming trend.
But what is the cause of this
trend?
Are we experiencing a normal
long-term warming/cooling cycle,
or is something new taking place:
warming caused by human activ-
ity?
On the increase are those who
predict catastrophe if the people
and nations of the world do not
take immediate-drastic steps.
Such dire predictions are noth-
ing new on planet earth.
Remember the grave warnings
preceding the year 2000?
All the hype about Y2K "the
millennium bug," was just an-


other in a long series that never
materialized.
Before this Communism was
the cause for world alarm. Today,
militant Islamic terrorism is the
threat. There always seem to be
prophets predicting a dire future.
According to current comput-
er predictive models, how warm
will the earth become by 2050, by
2100?
Will so much ice melt on
Greenland and Antarctica that the
oceans inundate vast costal areas
with millions of inhabitants?
Will the increasing heat cause
drought and famine, wiping out
huge populations?
Could global warming threat-
en the end of life as we know it?
What does the Bible have to
say about it all? Does it predict
global warming?
Definitely!
Tremendous heat? More than
civilization can tolerate! Destroy-
ing the earth? Absolutely!
"The day of the Lord will come


as a thief in the night; in the which
the heavens shall pass away with
fervent heat, the earth also and
the works that are therein shall be
burned up" (II Peter 3:10).
Of course, that is not the glob-
al warming people are concerned
about.
But why not?
Which of the following three
scenarios is more pertinent to our
daily lives and our futures?
1. Mankind may end civiliza-
tion with nuclear bombs; or 2.
Mankind may destroy life on earth
by disregarding the global warm-
ing trend; or 3.
The God who created the earth
will one day burn it up.
Which of the three should sen-
sible people be more concerned
about?
Do you realize that scenarios
one and two are materialistic
concerns, while issue three is a
spiritual concern?
No matter what humans do
to' "save planet earth," God has


scheduled the planet for destruc-
tion, and God has scheduled us
for judgment.
In verse 9, Peter says that
the Lord is "not willing that any
should perish, but that all should
come to repentance."
And verse 11 says: "Seeing
then that all these things shall be
dissolved, what manner of per-
sons ought you to be in all holy
living and godliness."
God calls us to make more
drastic changes than recycling
plastics and burning less fossil
fuels.
God is calling us to quit cheat-
ing, lying, stealing, fighting, drink-
ing, gambling, complaining,
aborting babies, having affairs,
living luxuriously and the like.
God is calling us to live holy
lives, spiritual lives, lives that put
Christ first, others second, and
material things last.
Are you ready for God's day of
global warming?

that the application of the rule would create a substantial hardship or violate prin-
ciples of fairness, as each of these terms is defined in Section 120.542(2), ES.
and that the purpose of the underlying statute will be or has been achieved by oth-
er means by the Petitioner.
Persons subject to regulation pursuant to any federally delegated or approved air
program should be aware that Florida is specifically not authorized to issue vari-

proved program. The requirements of the program remain fully enforceable by the
Administrator of the EPA and by any person under the Clean Air Act unless and
until the Administrator separately approves any variance or waiver in accordance
with the procedures of the federal program.

Help, my drought-tolerant plants are very wet!


By Angela Sachson
UF/IFAS Extension Service
It has been awhile since our
last true Florida rainy season. We
are accustomed to saving water
and watering sparingly.
Now we may need to divert
water, away from. some plants!
And some plants may need to be
moved, fertilized or sprayed with
fungicide.
Here are some concerns and
here are some recommenda-
tions:
My plants are turning yellow
from too much water!


If this is a small plant you can
dig it up and plant it in another
part of the yard.
Larger plants are not so easy.
Do not assume that your plants
are dying. Most will come back
when the soil dries a little. When
we do have a dry spell start think-
ing about constructing a rain gar-
den or swale to give rainwater a
place to sit away from your plant
beds.
How did all these weeds get
here? Weed seeds sit for months,
sometimes years, waiting for rain
so they can sprout. After a couple
of years of drought they have pro-


liferated. Use a hoe and get them
while they are tiny.
Where is my mulch? Was it
carried away by the mosquitoes?
Mulch floats-it is probably
piled up in a corner waiting for
you to redistribute it.
Are the mosquitoes still forc-
ing you to retreat indoors? Be
sure to use an insect repellant,
dress in light colored clothes and
were long plants, shirt and a hat.
Make sure you have no standing
water-empty flowerpots, tires.
If standing water is unavoid-
able, purchase some BT pellets.
BT (or Bacillus thuringiensis) in


pellet form prevents mosquito
eggs from hatching.
Do I need to fertilize now? Yes,
chances are the fertilizer in your
soil has washed away. Especially
nitrogen, which is notoriously fast
moving. So feed your plants and
turf again now.
What else might the heavy rain
bring? Look out for plant diseas-
es. Even in relatively dry times in
Florida our humidity invites bac-
teria and fungi to settle here. Be
on the lookout for signs of these
pathogens. If you "spot" some-
thing, it may be a good idea to
treat surrounding plants with an


appropriate fungicide available
where you buy plants.
The fungal diseases can usual-
ly not be treated-only prevented.
Contact us for suggestions.
Can I eat the nice big mush-
rooms in my yard? No. Some are
poisonous and most of us cannot
tell which are or are not.
Enjoy the lush growth brought
be this rainy season and also re-
member that the rain, too, will.
end.

How does your garden grow?


The local County Extension
office has been asked by local
newspapers papers to try out a
question/answer column. So, here
goes: Send us your favorite gar-
den questions by fax to: 863-763-
5901, or by email to: okeenews@
newszap.com). The University of
Florida Okeechobee County Ex-
tension office will pick out three
questions that would be of great-
est interest to local residents and
publish brief answers, typically
to be found in the Thursday edi-
tion of the Glades Democrat and
also in the Sunday edition of the
Okeechobee News.
The questions for this week
are REAL questions that have
been brought in to the Extension
office in the past few days. To con-
tinue the column, we need YOUR
real questions by (Wednesday at
5 p.m.). Be sure to include your
name and phone or email address
in case we need more informa-
tion (We can publish a question


as anonymous if you wish). Clear
photographs (digital preferred)
may also be submitted, but they
might not be able to be returned.
Do not drop by actual plant speci-
mens (unless it is a prize tomato
for our salad or a beautiful flower
for our office!) We reserve the
right to edit all questions for space.
[The answers will be placed on
the Okeechobee Extension web-
site the week after the appear in
print; they will include links to ad-
ditional references.}

Coral Tree Gall in
Okeechobee
I am a teacher in Okeechobee
but I brought in a piece of a plant
growing in my yard in St. Lucie
county. The ends of all the stems
on my Sunshine Tree are all swol-
len, the leaves are distorted and it
doesn't seem to grow any more.
What's going on and how can I
fix this problem?
If you had not given me the
name of this plant, I would have
been stumped. This plant is also


known as the Coral tree (Eryth-
rina variegata var. orientalis). The
stem is infested with a new inva-
sive pest that produces abnormal
growth know as galls. The Eryth-
rina gall wasp (Quadrastichus
erythrinae) lays eggs inside the
succulent new growth of this tree
and are misshapen by the burrow-
ing larva of this insect. Scientists
are looking at insecticides that are
applied to the roots and absorbed
by the roots. Dade County Agent
Adrian Hunsberger suggests that
any new Coral tree is planted and
drenched; other agents are not
recommending that this beautiful
tropical tree be used until natural
predators are found to keep this
galling pest under control.

GCWC 92nd

By Anne L. Coffey
Fellowship with one another,
promotion of literacy throughout
the community and volunteerism
are just a few topics of interest
that Bobbi Brown, president of
the Glades County Woman's Club
discussed at the first meeting of
the 2008-2009 season.
The 92-year-old organization
is as enthusiastic now as it was in
the early 1900s due to the myriad
of personalities and ages of its
members.
Members from north and
south and from all walks of life p
.such as a cosmetic salesperson,
a registered nurse, a former gov-
ernment worker, an accountant,
a retired teacher, just to mention Glades W
a few, came dozens of ideas for Bette Dav

to two outstanding vol- the Moore Haven Yacht Club.
ette Davis of Moore Ha- "These club members have
une Morningstar from worked behind the scenes do-


ing everything they could to help
our club achieve its goals," said
Ms. Brown. The gracious compli-
ments also said these generous
members never griped or sniped
at anyone.
"They did add their two bits
worth, however."
Ms. Brown was commended
for her computer skills in creating
the brightly colored and designed
booklet.
Several members are interest-
ed in joining the "Christmas On
The Caloosahatchee" festival that
has mushroomed since its incep-
tion just a few years ago.
The annual Glades County
Birding Festival will be staged in
Clewiston this year.
Much discussion ensued re-
garding plans for the club to be
involved with this unique event.
To change or not to change the
club's annual officer installation
dinner from May to March was


another decision to make since
most snowbirds return north in
April.
One of the organization's big-
gest problems has been to locate
a restaurant in Glades County for
this dinner or any other dining out
occasions.
This will be finalized at the Oc-
tober meeting.
Another vital purpose of the
club is to donate children's cloth-
ing to the schools, in fact, any
clothing to needy citizens.
A unanimous "yes" vote will
now assure elementary teachers
that younger students will have
access to all sorts of necessary
new clothing items.
All GCWC meetings are cur-
rently held on the second Thurs-
day of each month at a time
convenient to members, usually
7 p.m.
No one is required to bring
food or drink but snacks are hisu-


ally available and occasionally
members "brown bag" it.
Everyone is welcome and en-
couraged to join. Dues are a mere
$15 per year.
The only requirements are to
agree with the objectives and pur-
poses of the club, be a gregarious
person and have a good sense of
humor (we definitely need some
new joke material).

Glades Central dominates in home victory


Glades Day, Pahokee
also win big during
Friday contests

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE The Palm
Beach Central Broncos knew that
playing Glades Central was going
to be a tough test for them.
What they probably did not
think, however, was that Jon Bos-
tic, Palm Beach County's top over-
all prospect, would be thoroughly
ineffective against the Raiders.
In the Raiders 36-7 blowout
win over the Broncos, Bostic was
held to just seven yards on six car-
ries.
While Bostic played defense at
outside linebacker, Glades Central
prevented him from being a ma-
jor factor throughout the contest.
Glades Central's offense was
just simply dominant as Leron
'L.J.' Thomas was 10-for-16 pass-
ing with 204 yards and three
touchdowns in the Sept. 12 con-
test.
Rantavious Wooten, a fu-
ture LSU wide receiver, caught
Thomas's first touchdown pass
with 29.9 seconds left in the first
quarter.
That came after an Andre Ed-
wards interception return with
40.6 seconds left in the first.
With 8.2 seconds left in the
quarter, Glades Central's Hygens
Succes scored on a 33-yard inter-
ception return to put the Raiders
up 14-7.
Fred Pickett, who has recently
picked up offers from Florida
State and West Virginia, caught


a 10-yard touchdown pass with
3:59 left in the second quarter.
The Raiders defense put on
display a combination of speed
and power, something that Palm
Beach Central just couldn't han-
dle.
Glades Central forced three
interceptions in the game, while
allowing just 141 total yards on 43
plays.
Palm Beach Central averaged
just 3.27 yards per play, passing
and rushing combined.
Glades Central allowed only
six first downs in the game to
Palm Beach Central.
Wooten, who led all receivers
with three receptions for 79 yards,
scored again in the third quarter -
a 23-yard pass from Thomas.
Vinny Jones, one of Glades
Central's running backs, scored
on a 4-yard touchdown run in
the third quarter to complete the
scoring for the game.
Antonio McCloude led all
rushers with 89 yards on 13 car-
ries, even though he did not score
a touchdown.
Antwon Chisolm didn't play
against Palm Beach Central due
to injury.
He's out for the next game
against Palm Beach Gardens but
will return for the Sept. 26 show-
down with Clewiston in the Sugar
Bowl.
Though Glades Central domi-
nated in this contest, the most im-
pressive stat perhaps came from
the penalties area.
Palm Beach Central actu-
ally had more penalty yards than
Glades Central (55-50), something
the Raiders can be happy with.
Glades Central has a 2-0 record
going into their next home game


against Palm Beach Gardens,
while Palm Beach Central is 1-1.
Glades Day 34, Benjamin 0:
Kelvin Taylor, the son of NFL Pro
Bowler Fred Taylor, led the Gators
rushing attack with 14 carries for
111 yards and two touchdowns.
The eighth-grader is now the
starting running back for Glades
Day after Brandon Dean, a senior,
suffered untimely injuries to his
ACL and MCL, effectively ending
his season.
The Gators offense, engineered
by quarterback Bo Schlecter, had
no turnovers as he was 8-for-
13 passing with 172 yards and a
touchdown.
Senior wide receiver Deandre
Jackson, Schlecter's go-to guy,
led all of Palm Beach County last
week with five receptions for 118
yards and a touchdown.
Glades Day also recorded an
astounding 12 first downs in their
thoroughly dominant game.
Tomorrow night, Glades Day
(2-0) looks to impose its will on
Clewiston as they travel to Cane
Field.
The state's No. I ranked team
in Class 1A will be competing
against a team that has come off a
23-6 win over LaBelle, led by Dar-
ris Hughes' area-leading 244 rush-
ing yards and three touchdowns
last week.
Expect tomorrow's battle to
be a very close game, with domi-
nating performances by both Tay-
lor and Hughes.
The team who has the fewest
turnovers should win this con-
test.
Pahokee 40, King's Acad-
emy 7: Senior quarterback

once again as he three for three

touchdown passes, two to fellow
senior Dexter Holmes (4 recep-
tions, 111 yards).
Richardson, who went 13-19
for 263 yards and an interception,
also scored a rushing touchdown
in the game.
Vincent Smith, arguably the
area's best running back, led the
rushing attack with 12 carries for


81 yards and two touchdowns.
Junior wide receiver Dennis
Hall, a cousin of Pahokee alum
and NFL Pro Bowler Anquan Bol-
din, caught three passes for 57
yards and a touchdown.
Tomorrow night, the Blue Dev-
ils (2-0) look for another blowout
victory, this time against Palm
Beach Lakes, who was white-


washed by Glades Central 54-0
just two weeks ago.
For the state's top team in Class
2B, tomorrow's game will come
just two weeks before Pahokee
travels to Byrnes, S.C. to play the
nation's top-ranked team, accord-
ing to USA Today.

Tiger wideout Damion Smith pulls in a sideline pass to stop the clock


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers got their
first win of the young 2008 season
on Friday night as they outran and
out defended the LaBelle Cow-
boys at Cane Field.
The victory was also another
first that being Tiger Head
Coach Joe Roth's initial victory.
The. Tigers squared, their re-
cord at 1-1,and LaBelle fell to 0-2.
The fans got an early glimpse
of what was in store for the eve-
ning when Tiger tailback Darris
Hughes took the handoff on the
first play of the game and raced
untouched for a 65-yard touch-
down.
The extra point attempt by
kicker Isandro Marquez was just
off the mark.
S- LaBelle took the following kick-
off and mounted a drive down to
the Tiger 25 but handed the ball
over on downs at that point.
The rest of the opening period
was a matter of punt exchanges.
Clewiston punted again on
the second play of the second pe-
riod and the Cowboy return man
muffed the ball and Tiger Dillon
Irey was there to pounce on it at
midfield.
After a short gain and a 10-,
yard holding penalty against
Clewiston, Hughes took another
handoff and this time went up the
middle, swerved to the sidelines
and rolled 57 yards for another
score. .
Isandro's extra point kick was
perfect and the Tigers were on
top, 13-0.
The Cowboys went three and
out and a short punt gave the Ti-
gers good field position at their.
35.
Fullback Leonard Newton
bulldozed for 10 yards but the
Cowboy defenders stripped the
ball at the end of the run.
Cowboy sophomore quarter-
back Marcus Simmons scrambled
from pass formation and then
found tailback Kane Owens wide
open and threw a strike.
Tiger, defensive back John Wil-
liams 'made a touchdown saving
tackle, giving the Cowboys a first
and goal at the one.
The Tiger defense then made a
textbook goal line stand.
They stopped two running
plays for no gain and then line-
backer Duke Ewan sacked Sim-
mons for a four-yard loss,,and- a
fourth down pass from Simmons


fell incomplete.
The Tiger offense then got to
show their stuff, taking the ball at
their five-yard stripe with 4:39 re-
maining in the half.
Mixing .the strong running.
game of Newton gnd Hughes and
five pass completions by Mar-
quez, Clewiston moved the ball
90 yards to the Cowboy 5.
As time ran out, Marquez.split
the uprights with a 23-yard field,
goal to push the Tigers to a 16-0
lead.
LaBelle finally found some
consistent offensive spark as they
started the second half.
Simmons completed a short
pass to wideout Dorian Deas,
then he scooted for 10 yards and
then he hit Deas in the flats with
a swing pass and Deas weaved
through the Tiger secondary for a
47-8-yard touchdown.
The extra point attempt was
marred by a high snap and the,
kicker grabbed the ball and was
covered by Tigers to snuff out the
effort.
The Tigers then put together
an 11 play drive that chewed over
five minutes off the game clock
but ran out of steam at the Cow-
boy 35, turning the ball over on
downs.
On their first down, LaBelle
quarterback Simmons' pass was-
intercepted by Tiger linebacker,
Leonard. Newton who returned
the ball 20 yards to the Cowboy
18.
Clewiston could not take ad-
vantage of such good field posi-
tion and gave the ball back on
downs.
The Tiger defense then held
the Cowboys three and out, forc-
ing a punt from their end zone.
The ball went out of bounds.
at the LaBelle 48 and on the next
play, Darris Hughes was off to the
races for his third score of the
game with 33 seconds remaining
in the third period.
Isandro Marquez' point after
kick was good and ended scoring
for the night.
Darris Hughes amassed 244
yards rushing on 17 carries and all
Tiger runners rolled for 317 rush-
ing yards.
Quarterback Isandro Marquez
completed 10 of 19 passes and
had no' interceptions.
He used virtually all of his re-
ceivers. Wideout Jamarcus Smith,
caught 4 for 36 yards and flanker


INI/Jeff Barwick


Damion Smith snagged 3 for 22
yards.
The Tiger defense, was tough,
holding the Cowboys to 38 yards
rushing on 29 tries. The Cowboy
passing game. fared better with
143 yards on 8 completions out of
13 throws.
However, two of the, catches
accounted for 91 of those yards.
Newton led the defense with 7
tackles, a shared quarterback
sack and the interception.
Linebacker Dillon Irey had 5
tackles,' two sacks and a fumble
recovery.
About the .only negative on
the Tiger performance was in the
penaltyarena. I
The Tigers were flagged to
times for 91 yards, with most of
that being on the offense.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth was
happy to ring up the first Tiger
win of the year.
He said, "We are proud of this
team. They've worked hard and
it paid off tonight. This was good
for us and will help with ouK con-.
fidence level. But, We've still-got
work to do and we'll get started
on that tomorroww"
Hughes was excited after the
game.
"Our offensive line did a great
job tonight and opened holes,"
he said.
"Once I got open on those long
runs, all the work we've been do-
ing on speed really.paid off," he
added.
.Next up, the Tigers will host
the.undefeated and loaded Glades
Day Gators at 7:30 p.m. on Friday,
night., "
Clewiston, with only-26 play-
ers on the varsity roster, appears
to be in good physical shape for
the contest.

SFWMD
Continued From Page 1

ida Wildlife Commission (FWC).
were conducting joint research in
the Lake Okeechobee watershed;
so 1 decided to take a chance and
move to Okeechobee and submit
my resume and application in
hopes of getting a job with one
of the two. It certainly didn't hurt
that my family had been visiting
and fishing on Lake Okeechobee
since my high school days, be-
cause they already had a trailer on
the lake that I could live in. I was
hired by the district in November
1978 and the rest is history.
How did you acquire your
skills for being the Okeechobee
service center director?...As a ser-
vice center director for the district


it helps to know every aspect of
the organization to best serve the
people and do the job effectively.
During my tenure with the district
I've had the opportunity to work
as a technician, researcher, plan-
ner, regulator, educator and in
emergency management; so you
can say I have a working knowl-
edge of every aspect of the or-
ganization. These opportunities
presented themselves because
throughout my career I've al-
ways wanted to learn as much as
possible and take on additional
responsibilities. With that said, I
would have to say my initiative
and motivation throughout my
career helped me acquire these
skills along with having the op-
porotunity to be able to work with
and for a bunch of really talented
people who were also willing to


mentor me.
What other occupations have
you had?...My first job out of col-
lege was with the SFWMD. I have
also worked for a number of years
at Attaway Lumber in Okeecho-
bee during the same time I began
work at the district. The Attaways
were one of the first families I met
when moving to Okeechobee,
and they became like a second
family to me. It was more like fun
working for them than work. I've
also worked at a sporting goods
store and for IBM during my first
year in college. Lastly, I did own
a small bicycle shop in Okeecho-
bee for several years, but it was
just one of those businesses that
created a lot of interest; besides, it
was difficult competing with the
super Walmart.
What puts a smile on your


face?...Wow, lots of things put a
smile on my face, especially be-
ing able to wake up to another
day. I enjoy life, I enjoy my fam-
ily and I enjoy working with peo-
ple; and that puts a smile on my
face everyday. Lately my biggest
smiles have been coming when I
get to see my 14 month old grand-
daughter.
What would yo like to say to
young people in Glades County?...
Work hard, learning is important,
stay committed to your future in
whatever you want to do. Get in-
volved in your community, stay
true to your family and know that
helping others will put a smile on
your face.

Over the Labor Day week-
end a water pipe was broken in
Ortona, and the Turkey Creek
neighborhood was without water
for five days. A barge was work-
ing on the canal entrance way to
Meadowlark Campground and
River Forest Yacht Storage along
the Caloosahatchee River. The
barge collided with the water
pipe and it was broken in three
places. The canal pipe is part of
the Meadowlark municipal water
supply which furnishes water to
Turkey Creek on the opposite side
of the canal. Among other incon-
veniences, residents had to flush
toilets by pouring canal water into
the bowls. It was more difficult
for some, especially a senior lady
like Marie Kuzzmann who lives in

a stilt house and had to carry wa-
ter buckets up the stairs.
"Everyone was trying to help,"
said Ms. Kuzzmann.
She mentioned that the propri-
etor of Meadowlark Campground
opened up a park model for Tur-
key Creek residents so they could
take showers, and residents on
well water also offered shower
conveniences.
The Lakeport Community
Association announces that the
Sour Orange Festival date has
been changed to Jan. 10. It has
taken place annually on the sec-
ond weekend of February, but
last year's numbers were down
due to the placement of an
Okeechobee city festival on that
same weekend. Okeechobee in-
tends to schedule the same event
again, and it would conflict with
the Sour Orange Festival.
The Glades County Women's
Club annually sponsors two high


school scholarships and does
fund raising at local events. They
are making plans to have booths
at Christmas on the Caloosa-
hatchee and the Big '0' Birding
Festival, both in Moore Haven.
The club will continue their own
fashion show as a fund raiser for
the scholarships.
County pet owners sometimes
find it difficult to reach veterinar-
ian services because there is no
vet office in Glades County, and a
vet office in Clewiston is shutting
down. Luckily, a vaccination clinic
is taking place at the Tractor Sup-
ply store in Clewiston. Clinic dates
are scheduled for Sept. 20, Oct. 4
and Oct. 18. All dogs must be on
a leash, and cats and ferrets must
be in a carrier. Call 888-673-8838
or go to www.888petvet.com for
details and dates on upcoming
clinics through February.

temporarily displaced due to new
water levels. Along the west end
of Big 0, the alligator hunting has
been pretty good, and most hunt-
ers have been successful.
David Dannenhauer reminds
outdoor sportsmen that an
early waterfowl season for blue-
winged teal, green-winged teal
and wood ducks will open up
Sept. 20 through 24. Fishermen
- and hunters can get their licenses
at his shop along with permits
and stamps including the federal


duck stamp.
The lake levels were down
for a long time and debris may
have collected along some water
routes. If it has been two years
since you have run your boat
along these cuts, or if you are
new to the area, it will be safer
if you slow down and take your
time. Get local knowledge from
residents and take a map, too, ac-
cording to Mr. Dannenhauer.
It is well advised that all anglers
and hunters consult the rules and
regulations for each species. Go

Friends and Neigbbors,
Ithas been my pleasure to serve you, as a Law Enforcement Officer, over the past decade in Hendry County. That is why I am committed to
providing you with a better quality Law Enforcement Agency Your Sheriffs Office should be highly trained, effective, knowledgeable and
courteous. Friends, I ask you, "Are we there yet?" and the answer is "No". That is why I want to be your next Sheriff. My plans for the Hendry
County Sheriffs Office and the citizens of Hendry County will be mapped out over the next few weeks for you to see. These plans will
address current issues relating to the job, the agency and the people most affected by these areas and that is you, the citizen. I will not only
point out the problem, I will then lay out my plan on how to solve these problems. Most notably, we need more Deputies on the streets,
answering calls, patrolling your neighborhoods and working with you to suppress crime. As I have stated before, the current Administration
is full of highly paid positions that have little or no effect on the department. There are people in positions with no real obligation to you or
their specific duty has little benefit to the community By simply re-allocating the monies designated for these "non-essential" positions
and using those funds to provide additional Deputies to every part of the county it will immediately impact our community. When
managing a budget, your spending must be prioritized. As Sheriff, I will place the citizens of Hendry County as the top pri-
ority Another problem that I have seen first hand is the lack of cooperation with Federal, State and local Agencies.
Together I plan to work hand in hand with other Law Enforcement Agencies to better serve you the citizens of Hendry
County. I will work hard to re-establish working relationships with these Agencies and Organizations. By doing this it
will provide the Sheriffs Office with areas of intelligence, specified training, access to various resources and use of
critical emergency equipment in times of need. I will work to strengthen these relationships so that we can become
more effective in the times when you need it most. Friends, I ask you to simply look around... 'Are we there yet?"
Steve Whidden
