Juvenile curfew


SHIP administrator
reports on housing
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners met Aug. 27
and considered a juvenile cur-
few ordinance as recommend-
ed by Sheriff Stuart Whiddon.
The ordinance would com-
ply with Florida Statute chap-
ters 166 and 877. The curfew


would detail specific hours of
the evening and certain excep-
tions would be established. Le-
gal duties of parents would be
addressed and penalties would
be determined within the coun-
ty ordinance.
"I would like to see this done
because there has been a 35 to
40 percent increase in crime in
the city of Moore Haven and
it is traced back to juveniles,"
said Sheriff Whiddon.
The sheriff would like to
see this done county-wide be-


cause there is a similar juvenile
problem in Buckhead Ridge,
Lakeport and to a lesser degree
in Muse. Most of the activity
stems from minors walking the
streets at night. The sheriff said
that the curfew would also pro-
tect young people, since they,
too, could become victims of
crimes.
County officials will study a
similar ordinance that was ap-
proved in Fort Myers Beach in
2006. More discussion of the
proposed juvenile curfew will

350 pound animal
went on four night
rampage
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Four
nights in a row, a male black
bear bounded over neighbor-
hood fences and sometimes
plowed right through them in
its determination to rip open
dog pens, then kill and eat
the dogs that could not get
away.
On the third day, Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission
fish officials left a trap for the
bruin, but again it chose dogs


in backyards that night. Resi-
dents in the west Moore Ha-
ven neighborhood could take
no more, and Dennis Griffin
had seen enough.
He shot the seven and a
half foot, 350 pound boar
black bear in the early morn-
ing hours of Aug. 31.
On Thursday, the Barnes
family on Pine Drive was up
early getting ready for work
and school. Denise Barnes
said that her little terrier was
inside the house and kept
running to the back door.
She thought that the dog
was just over anxious for its
first trip outside that morn-
ing. Ms. Barnes considered
letting it outside, but was pre-

occupied with the family's
morning progress. The terrier
was a lucky dog that day.
"She started whining so I
opened the blinds and saw a
bear standing there with one
of the puppies in its mouth
and I hollered for my hus-
band. Then the bear dropped
the dog, looked at us and then
took off into the cane fields,'
said Denise Barnes.
Early on Friday morning
the bear had another one of
Dennis Griffin's dogs in its
mouth; the second of their
dogs to be killed. The 350
pound bear did not scurry
away when it saw Mr. Griffin.

Florida drivers need PIP


By John LoMeo
To truly appreciate the im-
pact of allowing Florida's Per-
sonal Injury Protection (PIP)
law also known as mandatory
"no-fault" automobile insur-
ance to expire, one must un-
derstand what it was like before
the law was enacted in 1971.
As an 'auto-insurance claims
adjuster in Florida prior to the
implementation of PIP, I know
exactly what it was like and why
PIP was such a welcome relief.
Prior to PIP, estimates had 60
percent of Dade County motor-
ists driving without insurance
and only those with medical
payment coverage or private
health insurance were covered
for injuries caused by an ac-
cident. The many injured indi-
viduals who did not have health
insurance were placed into the
collections system for nonpay-
ment of medical bills. To add
insult to injury, any settlements
reached through litigation with
the insurer of the person who
caused the accident were often
at a significant discount because
of the pressing need to satisfy
the medical debt.
Adding to the potential fi-
nancial disaster of the injured
\\as that Ein with medical-pay-
ments co,'rage and or private
health care, Ihere was no com-
pensation for wages during re-
covers, leaving many people at
or near bankruptcy. PIP provides
compensation for lost wages
and even burial expenses.
Without PIP and the "no-
fault" coverage it provides, insur-
ance companies scrambled to
save money wherever possible.
If it was determined by the in-


surer of the person who caused
the accident that there was any
negligence upon the part of ac-
cident victim, the settlement
offer would drop dramatically
and the-victim would often not
recover enough money to cover
his or her medical bills.
The reason PIP was imple-
mented 30 years ago was to lev-
el the playing field for all injured
parties. It makes the well-being
of the injured person the clear
priority by allowing all quali-
fied injured parties equal access
to quality health care without
regard to health insurance and
without regard to whom caused
the accident, which is an insig-
nificant detail when emergency
care is required.
With nearly 20 percent of Flo-
ridians uninsured, it is possible
that those who rely only on PIP
for coverage would opt out and
not carry any auto insurance at
all. While the current system
may not be perfect, it does of-
fer an equality that did not exist
prior to 1971. Certainly, modifi-
cations can be made to enhance
the system and address allega-
tions of "fraud" made by some
insurance companies. But, like
anything else, the learning pro-
cess is a continual process and
PIP should be kept intact while
the Legislature decides what that
next step should be. I urge our
lawmakers not to let PIP disap-
pear into the sunset on Oct. 1 and
take steps to ensure that Florida's
motorists are protected.

"Hamfests" draw local amateurs


By Samuel S. Thomas
W3ALE, PIO- Big Lake Amateur
Radio Club
Eric Rinehart, W4KPG and
Sam Thomas, W3ALE, were
among the local amateurs that
attended regional radio "ham-
fests" over the summer. They
are held during the year, with
the Stuart hamfest being held
earlier and the Fort Pierce Ham-
fest being held a few weeks
ago. Throughout the U.S., local
radio clubs sponsor gatherings
where amateurs can gather to
share information, buy and sell
equipment, take tests for radio
licenses, learn of the latest de-
velopments in radio technol-
ogy and meet with persons who
share their common interests.
The gatherings are usually time
to meet face-to-face (or to have
an "eyeball QSO" in radio par-
lance) with someone who may
have been met on the air and
who was unknown except by
his voice or characteristic send-
ing style. Each gathering has a
"tailgate" section where used
equipment is bought and sold,
giving many prospective ama-
teurs a chance to "get on the
air" with a limited budget or
to trade gear when someone is
seeking a new mode of operat-
ing. The gatherings usually in-
clude vendors who, market the
newest products in the radio
world. At the recent Fort Pierce
Hamfest, one manufacturer of
kits showed his line of receivers
and transmitting gear; enabling
people to build radio gear them-
selves, save construction costs,
and learr about the theory of
operation at the same time.
Hamfests are also a good
place to search for parts; those
hard-to-get items needed to re-
store an old radio to working
condition once more are of-
ten found among the tables of
equipment. A highlight is the fo-
rums that take place during such
gatherings. Operators have the
chance to learn about the lat-
est in satellite technology (ham
radio operators talk around the


world by making use of satel-
lites as well as ground waves),
new modes of communication
(more and more use of digital
technology that is interfaced
with amateur radio operations
is coming on the scene), the
latest in regulations and operat-
ing techniques (learning how to
make use of weather satellites
with your own home receiving
equipment, emergency commu-
nications or EM COMM tech-
niques where amateurs serve in
times of man-made or natural
disasters) and most of the gath-
erings make provision for ad-
ministering licensure tests.
For some years now, the
Federal Communications Com-
mission has gone to a Volunteer
Examiner program, where tests
for radio licenses are issued by
approved volunteers who cer-
tify the competence of poten-
tial radio amateurs for licensure
to operate on the short-wave
"ham" bands. License tests are
usually administered at amateur
radio gatherings and interested
persons can take a test as well
as meet with some of the "old
timers" who are usually willing
to share their experiences and
be of help in this world-wide
fraternity of persons with a spe-
cial interest. Hendry and Glades
Counties are not large enough
to have radio clubs of sufficient
size to sponsor a "hamfest" but
local amateurs can usually be
found when they meet in our
region. The largest ones in our
area take place in Tampa and Or-
lando, with sizeable ones taking
place in Miami, Fort Myers, Fort
Pierce, Stuart and Okeechobee.
The public is always welcome
to come and browse, ask ques-
tions, see the exhibits and learn
about latest developments.
Charges are usually nominal
with proceeds going to help lo-
cal clubs in their outreach to
their respective communities.
Information about upcoming
gatherings of amateur radio op-
erators is available through the
website of the American Radio
Relay League.


The Big Lake Amateur Radio
Club is an affiliate of the ARRL
and welcomes inquiries. It meets


the last Monday evening of each
month at Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston, at 7:30 p.m.

Area yards seek to be


Florida-friendly


The Florida Yards & Neigh-
borhoods program seeks to
reduce non source-point pollu-
tion. Through the local Extension
Service, homeowners are being
encouraged to follow Florida
Friendly principles that can help
keep our Lake Okeechobee
clean.
A couple of months ago, we
sent out a survey to area residents
to learn about how they are car-
ing for their landscapes. About a
thousand homes were contacted,
and more than a hundred were
returned about a 12 percent re-
sponse rate.
Based on the answers we re-
ceived, we have an idea of what
is already being done or not be-
ing done. This will help our office
target topics for upcoming work-
shops and activities. We were
pleased to learn that the people
who responded were pretty good,
stewards of their landscapes.
Today's column sums up some
of what we learned about how
friendly our yards are.
1. Right plant, right place.
Just over half of the surveyed
yard owners grow their plants
in groups according to their wa-
tering needs. Eighty-five percent
have natural and low-mainte-
nance areas in the landscape.
And nearly two-thirds water
their flower beds separately from
lawn. That is important because
most plant beds need muchless
water than does thirsty turfgrass.
2. Water efficiently. Almost
-- half of the respondents said that
their lawns are watered by rain-
fall only. And for the rest who do
irrigate their yards, nearly all will
adjust how much they sprinkle
based on rainfall amounts. Two-
thirds of those who do irrigate
don't really know how much
water they are putting down. The
recommended amountper appli-
cation is 2 to inch per applica-
tion. Just put some flat can cans
out on your lawn next time you
water and measure how long it
takes to get that right amount of
water.
3. Fertilize appropriately.
Lawn fertilizer is not used at all
by a third of those responding. .
Of those who do fertilize, most
do use slow-release fertilizer (rec-
ommended), but are not always
sure how much to use. We are
presenting a turf-taming work-
shop on Sept.10 and you can
learn how to figure that out!
4. Mulch. Mulch is applied 2-
3 inches deep by more than two-
thirds of y'all. And nearly 90 per-
cent let grass clippings stay where
they fall this provides nitrogen
to their lawns grass. Yeah!!


5. Attract wildlife. Three-
fourths of the respondents said
they feed wildlife they have
planted berry-producing plants
or installed feeding stations. Cov-
er or nesting sites are provided by
even more of these property own-
ers. Water for wildlife is available
at just over half of these yards.
6. Manage pests respon-
sibly. The vast majority (about
90 percent) of these landscapes
is monitored for problems, and
pests are treated only when prob-
lems are confirmed. And when
pest management is needed,
spot treatments are used using
the least harmful product avail-
able.
7. Reduce stormwater run-
off. A large majority (80 percent)
of respondents reported having
downspouts that drain into the
yard rather than on to impervi-
ous surfaces (like concrete or
asphalt.). More than half (59 per-
cent) have low areas that catch
and hold stormwater.
8. Recycle yard waste. Yard
trimmings are recycled in three-
quarters of yards represented
and clippings are left on the lawn
most of the time. Unfortunately,
the lawns tend to be mowed too
short: 90 percent mow to a height
less than 3 inches.
9. Protect the waterfront.
Since there were no responses to
these questions, we will not be
focusing on ideas for folks living
directly on canals and lakes. But
if you do live on the water, we
can suggest things you need to
do to be Florida Friendly.
In general, local residents de-
scribe themselves as landscap-
ing in a Florida-friendly manner.
They appear conscious of the
need to conserve water, do not
seem to over-fertilize or to over
use pesticides. They recycle yard
waste, make some provision for
wildlife and keep storm runoff off
the driveway and sidewalks.
If you are already doing this
stuff, why not be proud about it
and have your Yard recognized
as Florida Friendly. Call our of-
fice or visit out website to learn
about the FYN Yard recognition
program.
After looking at these results,
we decided to present some sem-
inars and workshops on subjects
that can be of benefit and inter-
est. The next workshop is on turf
management and will be held at
the Okeechobee Extension office
next Monday afternoon, Sept. 10,
at 5:30 p.m. It is a hands-on ex-
perience about watering, fertiliz-
ing, mowing and weeding. Other
workshops will come up as we
fall into the winter!

Guest Commentary


The ticking clock on pay discrimination


By Barbara Arnwine
American Forum
Look around your office. Do
you know what your co-workers
are really being paid? Probably
not. A recent survey found that
only 10 percent of companies
have pay openness policies. And
if you were paid less by your em-
ployer simply because you are
female how long do you think it
would take to find out? Probably
not until you've been working
there a long time, maybe years.
That is exactly what happened
to Lilly Ledbetter. Her employer,
Goodyear, kept compensation
information confidential and it
wasn't until decades after the fact
she found out that she was be-
ing paid less. By the time of her
retirement, she was paid $3,727
monthly, while the lowest paid
male doing the same job was
paid $4,286. Taking her employer
to court, a jury found that she re-
ceived raises less frequently than
her male colleagues because of
her gender. The jury awarded her
damages for this intentional dis-
crimination, but on appeal to the
Supreme Court earlier this year,
a majority tossed out the award
because Ms. Ledbetter failed to


file her claim within 180 days of
her employer's discriminatory
decisions decisions she didn't
have reason to suspect until long
after they were made.
Pay discrimination based on
gender is a violation of federal
law and victims of such discrimi-
nation should be able to recover
lost wages and perhaps other
damages as well. But the Su-
preme Court has now made it
practically impossible for victims
to recoup damages when they
have been discriminated against.
In order to encourage victims
of discrimination to file their
claims promptly, the law requires
that they file within 180 days of
the discriminatory practice. So
far, so good. But the Supreme
Court's decision in Ledbetter v.
Goodyear Tire, interpreted the
law to mean that the 180-day
Clock starts when the employer
makes the discriminatory deci-
sion, not each time the employee
receives a smaller paycheck.
So, if the employee didn't learn
about her employer's decision
to pay her less when the decision
was made, her claim of discrimi-
nation will probably be too late,
even though the employer con-
tinues to pay her less money.


The pattern in the Ledbetter
case is not unusual. In a 2002
case, another employee didn't
find out about her employer's
compensation policies until a
printout of salaries appeared on
her desk seven years after her
starting salary was set lower than
co-workers. In a 1998 case, the
employee found out about salary
disparities when she read about
them in the newspaper. Unlike
discriminatory decisions to hire
and fire, compensation decisions
are typically confidential. Conse-
quently, it makes more sense to
start the clock each time the em-
ployer makes a discriminatory,
payment rather than when the
decision to discriminate is made.
Ledbetter was a 5-4 decision
in which the conservative majori-
ty rejected the consistent position
held by most of the lower courts
for years. Over 20 years ago,
in a race discrimination case,
the Court observed that "each
week's paycheck that delivers
less to a black than to a similarly
situated white is a wrong action-
able under Title VII." This com-
mon senseidea means that if the
employee files within 180 days of
receiving the discriminatory pay,
he or she can have their day in


court.
Some argue that the clock
should start when a reasonable
person would have discovered
the wrong, but this vague stan-
dard is very difficult to apply in a
compensation setting. In particu-
lar, employees may learn about
pay differences but might not
have enough information to sus-
pect discrimination until much
later. It's a cruel joke on the vic-
tim if their clock runs out before
they even know it started.
Rather than opening the door
to such time-consuming dis-
putes, a better approach would
be to change the law back to the
definition that worked for de-
cades and that has proven to be
workable for both employers and
employees. As it stands right now
the Supreme Court has practi-
cally given employers a loophole
to discriminate, as long as they
aren't found out in 180 days.
Congress has a lot of difficult
issues to deal with when it re-
turns in September Iraq, im-
migration, the deficit, on and on.
But some problems are easy to
solve if the political will to stand
up to the White House and the
business community is there.
This is one of them.

Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history






Part 2 of a story of
R.E. Rose,
State Chemist
Edited by MaryAnn
Morris
INI Florida
Rufus E. Rose is noteworthy
in Florida history because he
left a written "reminiscence" of
the very earliest years of Florida.
Florida became a state in 1845,
then, in 1850 the federal gov-
ernment granted the fledgling
state title to 15 million acres of
"swamp and overflowed lands
"for drainage and reclamation."
That is roughly everything
south of Orlando, except for
some of the coastal lands, ac-
cording to the map the legis-
lature had drawn in 1913. Mr.
Rose wrote a short history of the
enterprise, not on a whim, but
by request. The document was
titled, The Swamp and Over-
flow Lands of Florida, the
Disston Drainage Company
and the Disston Purchase, a
Reminiscence.
"Having often been asked to
prepare a short history of, and
the reasons for, the organiza-
tion of the Disston Drainage
Company on January 25, 1881,
to drain and reclaim some 15
million acres of 'Swamp and
Overflowed Lands' in Florida
and the subsequent purchase
by Hamilton Disston and his as-
sociates of Philadelphia, of four
million acres of 'Swamp and
Overflowed Lands' for $1 mil-
lion on June 1, 1881, the condi-
tions existing at the time and the
reasons for undertaking these
great projects ... having been
closely allied with various Diss-
ton enterprises, particularly the
Drainage Company, from their
incipiency," wrote Mr. Rose.
"After Disston had completed
a large portion of the drainage,
the first large sale was made to
R.P. Davie and J.R. McKinney in
1908 for "the; establishment of
an experimental cane farm for
the production of sugar can on
a large scale for the purpose of
establishing sugar mills," wrote
Mr. Rose. Later that year they
sold 500,000 acres to Richard
(Dickey) Bolles for $1 an acre.
(His company, Florida Fruit-
lands Co. built a hotel on Ritta
Island.)
With these acts of Gov. Bro-
ward, coupled with Gov. Blox-
ham's deal for four million acres
to Hamilton Disston, the value
of "Glade" land began to rise,
"as testified by reputable men,
large owners of these lands, in
the circuit court in Tallahassee,"
Mr. Rose continues, with Gov.
Broward suits were settled, tax-
es paid and almost two million
acres of land and 25 percent of
the money paid by Bolles was
released to the fund, "this being.
the first instance in which the
constitutional provision requir-
ing 25 percent of the sales of all

Resolution to disaster payment issue announced


LAKELAND -- Florida Cit-
rus Mutual (FCM) is pleased to
announce that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture (USDA) has
reached an equitable resolution
to the issues surrounding the 2004
hurricane disaster payments.
In recent weeks, Farm Service
Agency (FSA) sent many citrus,
vegetable and nursery growers
letters saying they may have to pay
the disaster money plus interest
back if certain guidelines mostly
dealing with crop insurance had
not been met. The refunds would
have reached into the tens of mil-
lions of dollars.
Under the proposal an-
nounced by the USDA, producers
can avoid having to pay refunds
by providing FSA with proof of
2008 federal crop insurance, or


NAP coverage. If the sales closing
date or application closing date
for 2008 crops has passed then
evidence of 2009 coverage is ac-
ceptable.
In other words, if growers get
crop insurance now they won't
have to refund the disaster pay-
ment.
"Florida Citrus Mutual would
like to personally thank USDA
Secretary Johanns for measuring
the facts in this case and mak-
ing a fair decision," said Michael
W. Sparks, Executive VP/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "We also
acknowledge the hard work of
the Florida Congressional del-
egation including Senators Mar-
tinez and Nelson, Congressmen
Putnam, Boyd, Mahoney, Feeney
and Buchanan as well as the lead-


ers of other Florida commodity
groups."
Growers who have already
refunded disaster payments will
be able to get it back by provid-
ing FSA with the same insurance
documentation. Sparks suggested
.growers contact their county FSA
office immediately to start the
process.
If you have any further ques-
tions, please call FCM's Grower
Affairs Division at (863) 682-1111.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland,
is the state's largest citrus grow-
ers' organization with more than
8,000 grower members. The
Florida citrus industry employs
90,000 and.has a $9 billion eco-
nomic impact. Please visit www.

Low-interest loans



help improve wells


Certain low to moderate
income individuals or families
in Florida may be eligible for
money to construct, repair or
improve household water well
systems through one percent
interest loans from the Foun-
dation for Affordable Drinking
Water.
Florida is the latest state to
be added to those served by
the loan program created by
the foundation, which was es-
tablished through the National
Ground Water Association.
Qualified applicants can
borrow up to $8,000 at one
percent interest for a term not
to exceed 20 years. To qualify,
households must:
Own the home and use it
as the principal residence;
Have as the primary drink-
ing water source an individual
household well system located
on the property of the home;
Must meet income and
other eligibility requirements;
and,
Be located in a city, town,
or unincorporated area with a
population of less than 50,000.
The foundation will not
underwrite a loan once a proj-
ect is underway or has been
completed. Most new home

Crop disaster
GAINESVILLE -- The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) has an-
nounced FSA is now able to set
application closing dates for its
Noninsured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP) based on
geographic regions, said Kevin L.
Kelly, Florida FSA State Executive
Director.
"The changes in dates will
allow producers to report their
crops in a timelier manner with-
out having to guess what kind
of crops they will be planting in
advance," said Mr. Kelley. The
state's NAP regions will be split
into three areas: North, Central
and South.
This change also requires


construction projects are not
eligible.
Another important aspectof
the loan program is to educate
loan recipients on the impor-
tance of regular well mainte-
nance and annual testing of
their well system.
Complete information, in-
cluding application forms and
requirements and income eli-
gibility limits, can be accessed
by going to www.ngwa.org
and clicking on, the link for
the Foundation for Affordable
Drinking Water. Applications
and additional information can
also be obtained by contact-,
ing the foundation at (800)
551-7379, (614) 898-7791, ext.
544, or by mailing Peg Leach
at pleach@ngwa.org. You
also can learn more about the
program by going to www.
wellowner.org and clicking on
"Financing."
"Water is essential, and
the Foundation is committed
to helping those in greatest
need," said Paul Humes, foun-
dation director. "If you have a
real need and meet the quali-
fications for this program, we
encourage you to apply."


Everyone can practice water conservation


Remember the quote from
'The Rime of the Ancient Mari-
ner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
"Water, water everywhere, nor
any a drop to drink?" The an-
cient mariner was stuck in the
middle of the ocean, so all the
water around him was salty and
not fit for consumption.
With more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs, 1,350 miles of coast-
line and 50,000 miles of rivers
and streams, water is just about
everywhere in Florida. Two
months ago, however, Florida
experienced the worst case of
wildfires since 1998 while the
period from November 2005 to
March 2007 ranked as the third
driest period in recorded histo-
ry. With drought conditions oc-
curring throughout much of the
state, it is important that each of
us do our part to conserve Wa-
ter.
How much difference can an
individual make when it comes
to conserving water? With pre-
dictions of water use in Florida
increasing from 7,551 million
gallons a day (mgd) in 2005 to
more than 9,200 mgd in 2025,
every little bit saved can help.
Although, it really isn't just a
little bit when it's.all added up.
A family of two adults
and one child,
can save:
* 20 gallons per day -- for every


leaky faucet that is repaired.
* 500 to 800 gallons per month
-- installing water-saving show-
er heads or flow restrictors.
* 700 gallons per month --
shortening shower time by just
one or two minutes.
* 200 to 300 gallons a month
-- catching the water that runs
while heating a shower in a
container for other uses. r
* Three gallons a day -- turning
off the water while shaving.
* 200 to 300 gallons a month
-- keeping a bottle of drinking
water in the refrigerator instead
of letting water run cool from
the tap, and
* 500 to 1,500 gallons each
month -- setting lawn mower
blades one notch higher to pro-
duce less evaporation.
Other simple ways to
save water around our
homes include:
* Landscaping with native and
drought resistant plants,
* Watering lawns during early
morning or evening hours when
temperatures are lowest.
* Avoiding over fertilizing
which increases the need for
water, and
* Using mulch to retain mois-


assistance deadlines change


changes in the National Crop
Table with regards to NAP appli-
cation closing dates.
The first crop to have an ap-
plication closing date change for
2008 is okra. Okra will have an
application closing date of Dec.
31, 2007, for the North and Cen-
tral regions and Nov.. 30, 2007,
for the Southern region. These
changes apply to the 2008 crop
year.
NAP provides financial assis-
tance to producers of non-insur-
able crops when low yields, loss
of inventory or prevented plant-
ing occur due to natural disas-
ters.
Eligible producers must ap-
ply for coverage of non-insur-


able crops using Form CCC-471,
"Application for Coverage," and
pay the applicable service fees
at their local FSA office. The ap-
plication and service fees must
be filed by the application clos-
ing date as established by the
producer's FSA state committee.
The service fee is the lesser of
$100 per crop or $300 per pro-
ducer per administrative county,
not to exceed a total of $900 per
producer with farming interest
in multiple counties. Limited re-
source producers may request a
waiver of service fees.

grams, visit FSA online at http://

Mahoney tours new Brighton School Glades County District
Schools lunch menu for


By Susan Etchey
U.S. House Representative
Tim Mahoney took a tour of the
new Pemayetv Emahakv Charter
School located at Brighton Semi-
nole Reservation on Aug. 28.
The school, built and operated
by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, is
a state-of-the-art education facility
serving kindergarten through fifth
grade Brighton students with an
advanced immersion program to
teach and retain the unique cul-
ture and language of the Semi-
noles. As space allows children of
employees and other children can
apply but tribal members come
first. The enrollment exceeded
expectations with 149 students,
the first day it opened.
U.S. Rep. Mahoney was on a
whirlwind tour of hisl6th Con-
gressional District of Florida dur-
ing a recess of Congress for the
month of August. Seeing the new
school he expressed admiration
for the goals of the school, its
building construction, programs
and curriculum.
Administrators explained that
the Tribe wants to invest in the fu-
ture leaders. It is providing training
at each grade level in computer
usage as well as learning how to
do podcasting, an important tech-
nology skill in the internet age.
They are also utilizing a special-
ized reading and writing program
that has recognition nationally for
its excellence. Physical education
classes are held 45 minutes daily
with swimming classes included
in the curriculum. "This blows
me away," Rep. Mahoney told
school. administrators. "I don't
know what I expected but this is

very special. I commend the Tribe
and everyone involved."
Rep. Mahoney told the ad-
ministrators and Brighton Board
Representative, Johnnie Jones,
that the school enriches not only
Brighton, but also Glades County
as a whole. "I really appreciate
the opportunity the tour. I am im-


pressed. Your Seminole children
need to be proud of who they are
and where they come from. The
Seminole Tribe has such a rich
culture and history. You contrib-
ute much to the State of Florida.
" Rep. Mahoney promised to do
anything he can on behalf of.the
school, including hosting a con-


gressional tour for the students
in Washington D.C. Pemayetv
Emahakv Charter School's Chief
Executive Officer, Sandra Barker,
presented Rep. Mahoney with
a school t-shirt and a new book
about the tribe that was pub-
lished this year in honor of the
tribe's 50th birthday.

Childhood obesity rates alarming


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry/Glades County Health
Department
Obesity rates among children
have nearly quadrupled in the last
30 years. According to the Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion, 16 percent of boys and 14.5
percent of girls ages 6 to 11 were
obese in 2000. In 1971 4.3 per-
cent of boys and 3.6 percent of
girls were obese. Frightening and
sad to think about, isn't it?
Lack of physical activity and
poor diet- often foods high in fat
and sugar eaten in front of the
television- are the main problems
with the growing rates of obesity
and overweight in children. Chil-
dren ages 2 to 11 spend an aver-
age of 20 hours a week in front of
the TV. Add in computer time and
the hours are even higher! Are
you setting a good example? Turn
off the TV during meals and talk
to each other and enjoy the food
you are eating instead of concen-
trating on the tube!


At the grocery store: let chil-
dren help pick out fruits and veg-
gies they would like to try. Buy
fruits and veggies in season. En-
courage children to try and enjoy
a variety of foods. Check food
labels'with them to look for less
sugar and fat.
At home: have washed and cut
fruits and veggies ready for them
to snack on. Be a good role mod-
el and eat fruits and veggies! They
do want to be just like you when
they grow up. Remember, ac-
tions do speak louder than words.
Make part of being just like you a
healthy eater and a physically ac-
tive person. Have meals around
the same time everyday let the
kids be involved in planning and
preparation.
At the dinner table: eat meals
together as a family as often as
possible. Eating together is linked
with more healthy eating patterns.
Enjoy meals with your family as
often as possible and turn off the
TV and get caught up on the day's


events. Offer water instead of
soda or sweetened beverages. Let
children stop eating when they
are full, instead of when the plate
is empty. Take a walk as a family
after dinner.
Don't label foods as "good" or
"bad." It's about portion control
and having the less nutritional
items as a treat, not an everyday
thing. Do not use food as a re-
ward. Saying 'eat your spinach
and I'll give you dessert' sends a
very poor message. Try reward-
ing children with time- yours- like
playing a game together, reading
together or giving words of praise.
Try a chart on the fridge a sticker
for every, fruit and veggie eaten
- at the end of the week reward
them with something fun.
Don't expect your child to like
something new the first time. Of-
fer it again in a week. It usually
takes several tries (studies show it
can be as many 10 times) before
children are willing to try new
foods.

Bear
Continued From Page 1
"He stood up on his hind
legs and looked at me; that is
when I shot him," said Dennis
Griffin.
Fish and game authorities
came out to measure and re-
move the bear that had killed
five dogs during his night time
raids.
Fish and game officials had
set up a trap for the bear. The
plan was to capture it so they
could take a look and assess
its condition, which may be a
clue to its unusual behavior of


targeting dogs for food.
According to Florida Wildlife
Commission, the Florida black
bear is an omnivore with a diet
that normally consists of 80
percent vegetable matter, and
20 percent insects and small
creatures, with an occasional
armadillo or small pig. An at-
tack on a human by a Florida
black bear has never been
documented, and their normal
behavior is to run away when it
sees people.'
The bear's raids happened
just several blocks away from
an elementary school.
SThe little neighborhood
where the.bear appeared on


the west end of town is most-
ly surrounded by sugar cane
fields, which gives residents
a rural atmosphere, with 4-H
animals and pets in the back-
yards. This gives the neighbor-
hood children something to do
outdoors, but parents were too
frightened last week to let them
out of their sight.
According to FWC bear ex-
pert, Mike Orlando, the field bi-
ologist had said that the animal
had been in decent condition.
It did not appear to be starved,
old or injured.

They collided and Jack went

around and saw the injured boy
floating in the water and rushed
to rescue him to the shore.
Jack was taken by ground res-
cue to a hospital in Okeechobee,
and then by trauma hawk to St.
Mary's Medical Center in West
Palm Beach.
The boy later died as a result of
his injuries.

fantfor a couple of days before it
tries a real meal.
Allen Register, Gatorama,
owner, explained the process of
retrieving eggs from the defen-
sive sow alligator. It takes at least
two people. One person keeps
the sow at bay by putting the end
of a pole on top of her nose to
lower it to the ground. The sec-
ond person scoops up a few eggs


at a time. This process is repeated
until the clutch is completely re-
moved.
After the eggs have been
placed in the incubator, it takes
about two months for them to
develop. The ideal environment
for hatching is 90 degrees with
100 percent humidity. At the end
of this year's nesting season, the
gator farm had approximately
2,200 eggs.

While in Glades County, the

Whiddon and Major Richard
Jones. The flag raising was
then observed by county offi-

Tim Mahoney spoke a few
words before he left to visit
Glades County's first charter
school in Brighton. He men-
tioned that in the past several


years the majority of federal
funds have been allocated to
the war in Iraq, severely ne-

about and stud-

es encourage our bodies to re-
lease endorphins which tend to
give us a pervasive sense of hap-
piness and peace. Endorphins
also lower blood pressure, and
have even been implicated in the
fight against cancer. Endorphins

fection.
Science has discovered that
we need the equivalent of 17 af-
firming touches or hugs a day in
order to thrive -- and our world
around us is starving. In the
name of God, and for our sakes
and the sake of others, let's help
each other thrive by making sure
that we share at least 17 affirm-
ing hugs or touches each day. As
an added note, research has also
shown that men who kiss their
wives every day live five years
longer than men who don't. You
do the math!
Also, pet your pets. Pet all
your loved ones -- your spouse,
your children, your grandchil-
dren, your animals. Petting
animals and loved ones lowers
blood pressure.

ses? "Take off your shoes," God

study reported a number of years
ago in USA Today revealed that
those individuals who habitually
kick off their shoes under the
dining table or their desk or their
pew tend to live three years lon-
ger than the average American.
In the Benedictine Monastic
Order, the monks take off their
shoes constantly -- for meals,
for prayer,. for conversation, for
reading -- i.e., whenever shoes
are not an absolute necessity,
they go barefooted. Why? Bare

Try reading a new book of the
Bible. Break your daily routine in
some small way. Do at least one
wild thing every week. Just let go
and let God!
And don't forget to laugh a lot.
A cheerful heart is good medi-
cine, but a crushed spirit dries
up the bones. (Proverbs 17:22)
Take a break and do something
silly. There's holiness in humor.
It helps keep us from taking life
too seriously. Recent studies have
shown that over fifty percent of
all illnesses are stress related.
Laughter really is good medi-
cine especially when stress is
concerned. The joy of the Lord
is our strength. So, don't worry,
be happy! This is the day that
the Lord has made, let us rejoice
and be glad in it!
Good touches, healthy pet-
ting, going barefoot, adding va-
riety, and laughing often will not
only add life to our years, but
add years to our life as well!

When I don't see anything happening what then?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I had that second happiest day
with my boat; someone wanted
it and we came to an agreeable
price. I don't miss it, but there
were some things I learned about
boating that ..
have their place
in other parts of
my life too. .. ,
I learned that
I had a rather
large vehicle
with no brakes
to control. By us-
ing the throttle Rev. Samuel
and shift lever, it S. Thomas
could be made
to stop, or at least drift sideways if
the currents were going that way.
I also learned that when I would
turn the wheel, the boat would
follow, although not always as
quickly as my car. Sooner or later,
though, the boat would turn in


"Why do
By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church
of Clewiston
First Christian is celebrating
"Rally Day" Sept. 9, so I wish to an-
swer the question of people who
ask, "Why d o we go to church?"
Why is the church so concerned
about getting members to attend
its services?
It is interesting to note the re-
actions to questions such as these
and also alarming to find so many
answers that are inadequate.
Where man's confusion lies is
at the point of defining what the
church really is. Too many think
the church is a human institution
that functions for the educational
benefit of man. In other words,
the church has the position of be-
ing a spoke in the wheel of life,
but only one of many.
The fact that many do not
comprehend is that the church
is not a mere human institution.
Rather, it is a DIVINE institution
that is the hub of the wheel. Fur-
ther still, the church consists of
saved men and women admitted


the direction where I steered it.
Sometimes the tides or currents
made the turns slower, or made
me apply more power if the boat
was going to move in my chosen
direction, but it could be done.
I believe that sooner or later,
things go in the directions intend-
ed; sooner or later the ways God
intends for things to happen will
occur. It took "40 years" for the
people of Israel to get from Egypt
to their promised land, but it hap-
pened. The Exodus from Egypt it-
self came after many, many years
in captivity, and then one day the
Lord said "I have indeed seen the
misery of my people in Egypt ... so
I am coming down to rescue them
(Exodus 3:7-8)" These things did
not happen overnight, but the as-
surance that God was with them
gave them hope.
Eventually, the buffeting of the
winds of history and the tides of
politics gave way to the course
God had intended to be steered.
I have watched the shifts in the


outlooks of people; going from be-
ing certain about a certain course
of action, to beginning to wonder,
to questioning and then to chang-
ing one hundred and eighty de-
grees away from something they
were certain about a while back.
The corrections, the changes are
not always dramatic or earth-shak-
ing but come when there is an in-
ward, gnawing feeling that some-
thing isn't right and something
needs to be done, even if there
are feelings of powerlessness at
the moment. Recently, there have
been more and more outrages
about senseless killings or scan-
dals in high places, or people be-
ing exonerated for crimes that
have gotten them really meaning-
less or insignificant punishments.
I believe that is how we see
things change: not always by dra-
matic or great movements, but
by the feelings within people that
somehow, something isn't right.
I was about four years old when
we made a visit to one of my great

have been our assurance for thou-
sands of years; "I know that my
redeemer liveth, and that in the
end He will stand upon the earth
... yet shall I see God (chapter 19,


verses 25-26)." Things do not al-
ways work out immediately; but
if we believe in God, there is the
promise that they will work out
and He is not deaf to our calls to
Him. I pray for peace, I pray for
justice, I pray for healing, I pray for
the needy, I pray for those who are
oppressed -- maybe not today, but
the day will come when all of our
prayers are answered. Until that
day, let us keep praying, working
and doing our part enough said!

HENRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Puoll Prooresslon' Promotion/Retention
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute social promotion.
Florida Statute 1008.25 requires that any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading, based upon locally
determined or statewide assessments conducted in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3 must be given
intensive reading instruction immediately following the identification of the reading deficiency. The student's reading
proficiency must be reassessed by locally determined assessments, or through teacher observations at the
beginning of the grade following the intensive reading instruction. The student must continue to be provided with
intensive reading instruction until the reading deficiency is remedied.
If a student's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated by scoring at Level 2 or
higher on the statewide assessment test in reading for grade 3, the student must be retained.
The parent of any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading must be notified in writing of the
following:
1. That his/her child has been identified as having a substantial deficiency in reading.
2. A description of the current services that are provided to the child,
3. A description of the proposed supplemental instructional services and supports that will be provided to
the child that are designed to remediate the identified area of reading deficiency.
4. That if the child's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, the child must be retained
unless he/she is exempt from mandatory retention for good cause.
5. Strategies for parents to use in helping their child succeed in reading proficiency
6. That the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is not the sole determiner of promotion and that
additional evaluations, portfolio reviews, and assessments are available to the child to assist parents and
the school district in knowing when a child is reading at or above grade level and ready for grade
promotion.
7. The districts criteria and policies for mid-year promotion.
8. Each school district shall provide written notification to the parent of any student, who is retained
because his/her reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of third grade, that his/her child has not
met the proficiency level required for promotion, and the reasons the child is not eligible for a good
cause exemption as provided by Florida law. The notification must include a description of proposed
interventions and support that will be provided to the child to remediate the identified areas of reading
deficiency.
Successful Proaresslon for Retained Readers
The 2004 Legislature amended section 1008.25, Florida Statutes, to create a new paragraph (7) that provides that
all students who are retained in third grade must be provided intensive interventions in reading to ameliorate the
students' reading deficiency, as identified by a valid and reliable diagnostic assessment. This intensive intervention
must include effective instructional strategies, participation in the school district's summer reading camp, and
appropriate teaching methodologies necessary to assist those students in becoming successful readers, able to read
at or above grade level, and ready for promotion to the next grade.
This section also requires each school district to establish at each school, where applicable, an Intensive
Acceleration Class for retained third grade students who subsequently score at Level 1 on the reading portion of
the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The focus of this class shall be to increase a child's reading
level at least two grade levels in one year The school is required to report the following:

17 attempts with s-:\ tral ccatclhahbl
balls not held b\' Titer rei- I i\cers
But Clewiston's por:l pss ll:pt t:e
tion blocking and an dabuidanrce ul
untimely procedure, motion and
substitution penalties kept the of-
fense in the hole most of the night.
Marquez was sacked six times for
a total of 52 yards lost. Tailback
Darris Hughes picked up an errant
snap on a passing,play and was
pinned for another 17 lost yards.
The Tiger offense squandered
a late first quarter .scoring oppor-
tunity after Allen Gaines recovered
a Patriot fumble on a muffed punt
return at their 19. After no gain on
three attempts, Kicker Will Davis
was barely off the mark on a 35-
yard field goal attempt. This came
after the Tigers had given the Pa-
triots the ball at the Clewiston 25
after a 10-yard Marquez punt. But,
the Tiger defense was stubborn
and forced a 37-yard field goal try
that barely missed.
Both offenses were inept for
most of the second period until late
when American Heritage intercept-
ed a Marquez pass and returned it
to the Tiger 24. Seven plays later,
they were facing a fourth and goal
at the Tiger 1 and went with a run.
off the left side. The Tiger defense
stopped the run and then got some
breathing room thanks to a 15-
yard infraction on Patriot players
who were arguing with officials
about the call. But delay of game
and illegal motion penalties kept
the Tigers in the hole and forced
a punt. Marquez had another short
punt, this one 22 yards. With only
32 seconds left in the half, Patriot
quarterback Josh Olkinitsky con-
nected with a wide open Vince
Cornelius, who had split the Tiger
secondary coverage, for a 32 yard
touchdown. Kicker David Lopez
nailed the point after.
In the third period, the Tigers
drove again down to the Patriot
11 and were forced to settle for a
27-yard field goal by Davis for their
only points of the night. Davis also
missed two other field goals, one
from 35 that was just slightly off
the mark and a 46-yarder that was
short.
The Patriots other score came
when linebacker Josh Brisk inter-
cepted a Marquez pass in the Ti-
ger backfield and scooted in for a
10 yard score with 9:08 left in the
third period. Again, Lopez added
the extra point.
The Tiger defense was stingy,


Tiger Tailback Colin Ricketts rumbles for 15 yards after receiving
pass from Isandro Marquez during Friday, Aug. 31 game against
American Heritage.


Wideout Allen Gaines reaches in vain for a pass mat woula nave
given the Tigers a sure touchdown during the game held at Cane
Field on Friday, Aug. 31.


holding American l1ii.iin..- in
check for most of the game ex-
cept for a 59-yard burst by I'.,lli.,l:
Brent Singleton, Senior Delvin
Hughes, an All State selection last
season, had seven solo tackles and
two quarterback sacks while Colin
Ricketts, another All State returnee,
chipped in with seven tackles, two
assists and a rushing sack.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
indicated that the Tigers have
plenty of room for improvement.
"We gave them seven points on
the interception and then turned
around and failed to.score on our
next series. That was a big swing,"
he said. Coach Antonacci added,
"We've only got 28 players on the
squad and tonight we played with
about eight of those making a con-
tribution. Those other players are
going to have to step up and play
football. We didn't know our plays
tonight and receivers were not run-
ning the correct routes. American
Heritage is a pretty good team but


our inexperience really showed to-
night."
Clewiston travels to LaBelle this
week to take on a promising Cow-
boy team that is fresh off a road win
over Sarasota Cardinal Mooney.
The contest for the Hendry County
Championship promises to be a
tough game for the Tigers.
