Library to reprint Glades book


Waiver of fees
no longer granted

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY At the
county commissioners meet-
ing on Oct. 9, permission was
given to the library board to re-
print copies of "Glades County,


Florida History." The copyright is
held by the Glades County Board
of Commissioners and was origi-
nally published more than 20
years ago.
"We have had numerous re-
quests for the book and they are
selling on eBay for $125 each,"
reported Jeanette Peeples, li-
brary board member.
Ms. Peeples went on to say
that there have been at least 200


requests for the reprints, and
later a revised edition may be
needed to correct some histori-
cal information. Requests may
be left at the library.
Approval was given to fund
installation of kitchen counters
and cabinets for the Palmdale
Community Center, It was noted
that the restrooms also need a
handicap upgrade.

Commissioner Russell Echols
reminded fellow commissioners
and the public that a school stu-


dent was almost hit by a semi-

The arrival

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
First light had just streaked
across the southern pasture
when the rattle of an old cattle
trailer could be heard. We kept
walking' and looking' and lis-
tenin', Josie and I, and pretty
soon we could see a truck 'n
trailer pulling up at the gate but
could not see what, if anything,
was inside.
As the truck driver got out


and unlocked the gate we
heard galloping hoofs from the
southern most end of that pas-
ture along with loud raucous
braying. Danny had to find out
just what was going on that he
.ought to know about!
The driver pulled the trailer
on through the open gate,
quickly got out relocking the
gate, and then pulled the trailer
to a wide open space where
the grass-was long and green.

Highlands Hammock State Park


Travel a two-hour
time warp into
Florida's pre-history
By Nancy Dale
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
The "12 Hours of Sebring"
in Central Florida is the famous
Formula One Grand Prix race
where every March world class
drivers thrill thousands of fans
challenging their agility and en-
durance.
However, high-speed rac-
ing is not the only attraction
in Sebring, it is also a place to
slow down and travel back into
Florida's pre-history, the Age of
Coal and Conifers (Pennsylva-
nian Period that began 250 mil-
lion years ago) in the ancient


Cypress Swamp of giant ferns
and hardwood forests of "real
Old Florida" at Highlands Ham-
mock State Park. It is a short
day trip from Florida's east
coast but a journey millions of
years back in time.
The story of Florida's natu-
ral history at the park remains
unspoiled for motorists, bicycle
riders, and in-line skaters that
Travel along the 3.2 mile paved
loop road beneath an arching
canopy. The cry of Red-Shoul-
dered Hawks and Pileated
Woodpeckers echoes through
the tall Cypress and some
1,000-year old Oaks as they
weave beneath their protective
shield. The ancient hammock
(defined as higher ground than
its surroundings) is character-
ized by hardwood vegetation
and deep, humus-rich soil


where visitors can hike nine
wooded trails, or stroll along
several elevated boardwalks.
The most popular 30-minute
hike is the Cypress Swamp
Trail and "catwalk" built across
Charlie Bowlegs Creek where
photographers can shoot close-
up pictures of alligators swim-

History museum to be built in honor of Belle Glade farm family


WEST PALM BEACH The
Wedgworth family's companies
have donated a significant gift
to the Historical Society of Palm
Beach County's capital campaign
to build the Richard and Pat John-
son Palm Beach County History
Museum. The much-anticipated,
first county-wide history museum
is scheduled to open in March
2008 within the historic 1916
Courthouse in downtown West
Palm Beach. Three generations
of Wedgworths have transformed
the agricultural community of
Western Palm Beach County en-
abling the county's production
to be marketed across the United
States.
"There is so much to be
learned about the present and
the future of our community by
understanding our past," said
George Wedgworth, Chairman of
the Board of the Wedgworth com-
panies who, along with his sisters
Barbara Oetzman and the late
Helen Boynton, made the gift to
the Museum. "Palm Beach Coun-
ty's history is anchored in agricul-
ture being the key economic en-
gine throughout the 201h Century.
Yet, many residents today have
little understanding about the
economic role agriculture plays in
the region. We believe this knowl-
edge is important for the success
of future generations."
The Wedgworth family came
to Palm Beach County in 1930
when Herman Wedgworth ac-
cepted a position as a research
plant pathologist at the University
of Florida's Everglades Research
& Education Center in Belle
Glade. He is credited with discov-
ering a manganese deficiency a
soil nutrient deficiency in the
growing of winter vegetables.

Farms.


With the addition of minor nutri-
.ents, the Everglades Agricultural
Area (EAA) is now considered,


at the national level, as an almost
ideal place to farm. Recognizing
that the family's financial future


was tied to the land, Wedgworth
began acquiring virgin land for
farming. Additionally, he began
the construction of a fertilizer
plant, vegetable pre-cooling plant,
and packing house so fresh pro-
duce could be shipped to markets
along the east coast. Unfortunate-
ly, he was tragically killed at the
age of 37. His wife, Ruth Springer
Wedgworth, took over for her
husband and worked side-by-
side with the farm's employees to
build Wedgworth Farms, and the
packing house and fertilizer plant,
Wedgworth, Inc.
The Wedgworth's only son,
George, attended Michigan State
University, where he earned a de-
gree in Agricultural Engineering.
Upon graduation, he and his wife,
Peggy Rawls Wedgworth returned
to Belle Glade to help his mother
run the family businesses. George
Wedgworth is credited for recog-
nizing the stability that growing
sugarcane gave to the Glades
area vegetable farms. In 1960, he
and 16 fellow Glades area farm-
ers banded together and formed
Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
of Florida (Cooperative). The Co-
operative is Belle Glade's single
largest employer and consists of
some 48 grower-members all lo-
cated in Palm Beach County. The
primary functions of the Coopera-
tive are the harvesting, transport-
ing and processing of sugarcane
and the marketing of raw sugar.
In the late 1990s, the Coop-
erative with Florida Crystals Cor-
poration; purchased RSI, a sugar
refinery in Yonkers, New York so
that the Cooperative could bring
sugar from the fields of Palm
Beach County to dining room ta-
bles in the eastern United States.

Celebrating life is focus


of Baby Shower events


PALM BEACH COUNTY In
September, Families First hosted
two baby shower events for 30
high-risk pregnant women. One
baby shower was in Belle Glade
and a second in West Palm
Beach.
"Celebrating the birth of a
child is one of the wonders of life.
At Families First we help these
women celebrate by giving them
these baby showers," said, Julie
Swindler, Executive Director of
Families First. Most of the women
attending wouldn't have had the
opportunity to even have a show-
er to celebrate their pregnancy if
it weren't for Families First.
Families' First offices were
decorated with balloons, stream-
ers and party favors for all! There
was plenty of food. A baby show-
er wouldn't be complete without
plenty of fun baby shower games.
Among the games the moms
played was who can drink from
a baby bottle the fastest and baby
bingo. Each expectant mother left
the shower with a baby gift bas-
ket packed with diapers, wipes,
baby shampoo, lotion, powder,
bibs and a receiving blanket.
The women attending the


shower were also provided with
educational materials for having
a healthy baby during pregnancy
and after. They also received a
brand new Graco-Century baby
car seat, a gift that every mom
needs.
"We could never have done
these showers without the sup-
port from community donations,"
stated Ms. Swindler.
The Targeted Outreach for
Pregnant Women Act (TOPWA)
one of six programs under The
Families First umbrella, was fund-
ed by the Florida Legislature in
1998, as a unique street outreach
program where our specially
trained staff goes out into the
community and engage women
who may be pregnant and at risk
of not having a healthy baby. The
program offers free pregnancy
testing, free HIV testing and link-
age to appropriate community
services and resources to bring
healthy children into the world.
Anyone wanting to donate
new baby items or volunteer to
help us with the next baby show-
er should contact Families First
at (561) 881-5572 or on line at
www.familiesfirstpbc.org.

HENDRY COUNTY First
Bank, a member of the Inde-
pendent Community Bankers
of America (ICBA), which rep-
resents 5,000 community banks
nationwide, said that community
banks remain a stable source of
mortgage and small business
loans even as the national mar-
ket is being buffeted by talk of a
credit crunch.
"Despite talk of a credit crunch,
the truth is community banks are
open for business," said Deborah
Van Sickle, Senior Vice President
of First Bank. "Community bank-
ing is a relationship-oriented
business. First Bank is here for
our community to not only help
families get a Mortgage Loan, but
help them get a Mortgage Loan
that's right for them for in the
long-term. So, whether you are
a first time home buyer or a bor-
rower who hopes to refinance an
Existing mortgage, you will serve
yourself well if you start your loan
search with us."
The community banking busi-
ness is weathering this latest crisis
in the mortgage market because
local banks are well run, highly
capitalized and among the most
highly regulated industry in the


country. "Local banks provide
a stable and reliable source, of
mortgage money," stated Miller
Cause, President of First Bank.
"We encourage community resi-
dents and business owners to
come see us. Our staff is avail-
able to discuss your Mortgage
Loan needs and any other loan
request."
"Wall Street may be suffering
but our community banks are in
solid shape and open for busi-
ness" said Mali Chamness, City of
Clewiston Mayor "Banks are the
foundation of economic develop-
ment as well as community re-
development. Today, consumers
and communities can continue to
rely on local, community banks
that have succeeded in helping
the community and economy at
large."
First Bank was established
in 1922 and has three offices in
Hendry County and one in Lee
County and looking forward to
the opening of their Moore Ha-
ven office in 2008. First Bank's
main office is located at 300 East
Sugarland Hwy, or you can reach

Critters to watch out for worms in the grass


By Dan Culbert
Okeechobee Extension
Horticulture Agent
Last week's gardening column
on the Yellow-necked caterpil-
lar that is chewing up local oaks
has opened up a "can of worms."
Our Master Gardeners have been
crawling with all kinds of caterpil-
lar calls in the past week.
Today's column will talk about
one of these critters that came
from a local lawn. This one is
worth worrying about, as it's that
time of year to be dealing with
turf caterpillars too. Identifica-
tion is very important, as we have
had a few others creepy crawlies
in our local Florida Yards that are
not a problem. And the decision
on what if anything to do depends
on whom they are.
From Grass to FrassOne of last
week's office, visitors brought in
a container filled with a bunch
of caterpillars collected from his
lawn. They were generally tan in
color, but had some thin stripes of
color running the length of their
two-inch long bodies. A close
look at their eyes showed they
were striped too! Our visitor said
they have reduced a part of his
lawn to a pile of frass the polite
word for what these insects leave
behind.
The identification stumped
me at first. I've seen and heard of
caterpillars that can consume our
Florida lawns, but had not seen
these worms. When disturbed,
they had an inchworm-like habit:
"they are kind of loopy," I said
and that prompted Angela to
suggest that maybe they are some
kind of looper.
Boy was she right! A little
searching around and she nailed it
these crawlies are called Striped
Grass Loopers, one of three com-
mon caterpillars that can chomp
down a lawn. Alachua County
Horticulture Agent Wendy Wil-
ber reports that besides this
striped grass looper (SGL), two
other lawn caterpillars active at
this time of year, are tropical sod
webworms TSW) and fall army-
worms (FA). The caterpillars all
develop into moths, but you nor-
mally don't notice the adults un-
less the outbreak is severe.
To get a sense of how bad an
infestation is before your lawn
completely disappears, moni-
tor for the caterpillars. Look for
chewed leaves and follow-up the
search with a soil drench. Drench
t. the soil with a soap solution, of
two: tablespoons of dishwash-

pasture in Okeechobee. The Striped Grass Looper can also
consume lawns.


ing soap in two gallons of water;
pour this solution over a'square
yard of grass and watch for pests
crawling out of the soil and on to
the grass blades.
If you are able to identify as
few as three loopers or army-
worms per square foot, it's time
to take corrective action. For
the tropical sod webworms, the


threshold is much higher wait
to treat until levels are as many as
10 to 20 tropical sod webworms
square foot.
There are many beneficial in-
sects that feed on these caterpil-
lars. Dr. Ron Cave, a Bio-Control
expert at the UF Research Center
in Ft. Pierce, found that in Hon-
duras there are as many as 31


different kinds of predators and
parasites that can consume this
species. There are not as many as
that here, but ants, ground bee-
tles, rove beetles and wasps can
all eat these lawn-munching cat-
erpillars. Bottom-line: try to use
pesticides as a last resort, and use
the least toxic method first.
If you catch the caterpillars
when they are still young, a prod-
uct containing Bacillus thuriqgi-
ensis or "Bt" will work. Some
trade names for products with
this material are Dipel, Thuricide
or Safer's Caterpillar killer. If the
problem is ongoing, you will
need to spot treat with an insecti-
cide like Scott's MaxGard orSevin.
Insecticide use should be ideally
timed for about two weeks after
peak moth activity noted, and is
most effective in the early evening
when larvae begin feeding.
Baker County CED Mike Sweat
also says these are a problem in
pastures. The striped grass looper
damage is similar to the chew-
ing on forages done by fall ar-
myworm. And like the fall army-
worm, female moths prefer to lay
their eggs on tender new growth.
Population studies have found
that some kinds of pasture grass-
es are favored by the loopers, so
get with us for the research re-
sults if these insects are affecting
your business of growing pasture
grasses.

Letter to the Editor


Regional park
plans progress
To the Citizens of LaBelle,
Hendry County, Glades county
and the entire Southwest Florida
area:
It was several months ago I de-
cided to take up the challenge re-
garding the Leased Land that the
City of LaBelle has had from the
Water Management District since
1991. A deadline from the District
of April 2008 was given to pro-
duce a plan for a Regional Park.
The 176 acre Property is located
on the North side of the river just
to the east of Hwy 29 with a mile
of river front. With the help of


several other devoted citizens we
were able to produce a passive
recreational park concept for the
property. After the first workshop,
which we heard concerns from
both proponents and opponents'
and we have tried to take every-
one's concerns and passions into
account. We have been able to
gather the support of numerous
Gov. Agencies' who support such
an endeavor. Our plans include a
Butterfly Garden, picnicking area,
green open space a possible wet-
land restoration area, fishing pier
and kayaking area. Most of this
activity would take place along
the river.
The remainder of the land
would be hiking trails for bird


watching and environmental en-
thusiasts or just plan exercise.
For us this is a rare opportu-
nity to utilize a large piece of riv-
erfront land for the enjoyment of
the public.
These opportunities are very
rare as river front land is at such
a premium.
This is just the beginning of a
project that should have already
been in place and I am encourag-
ing all citizens who are interested
to see such a park come to tuition
to please come to our next work-
shop on Nov. 1 2007 at 7 p.m.
in the LaBelle Civic Center and
show your support. We are open
to all suggestions for improving
the design and activities that may


be incorporated. But please keep
in mind our intentions are for pas-
sive recreation and to restore the
property to its original state as
much as possible.
My Thanks to those who have
helped get us to this point: Mar-
garet England, Nikki Yeager, John
Capace, Mitch Hutchcraft, The
Dept of Interior Joyce Mazourek
and Bill Thomas, SFWMD, De-
partment of Forestry, SW Conser-
vancy, Audubon.

sioners please contact maryjowi-

Are you ready, willing, Community Nev


and able to change?


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry/Glades
Health Department
To succeed at making lifestyle
changes you need to answer YES
to the question, "Are you ready,
willing, and able to change?"
The experts say that for people to
change, making the change must
be important to them. In other
words, you must have good rea-
sons to change. You must have
more reasons to change than rea-
sons not to change. The experts
also say that you must be con-
fident and believe that you can
change.
To succeed, take what you
want to do and break it down into
small steps. Then think about a
few things you are ready, willing,
and able to change. Leave other
habits that you don't feel ready,
willing, and able to change for an-
other time.
What are you ready, willing,
and able to change? To answer
this question, think about your
current eating and activity habits.
What foods do you buy? Are you
ready to leave some of the less
healthy things on the shelf instead
of putting them in your cupboard?
How active are you? Are you will-


ing to give up some tube time to
get active? Try to keep an honest
food record for a few days to get
a true picture of what you eat.
Based on your current habits,
start with a few changes that are
easy to tackle. Pick some changes
that you want to do the most, and
that will make the biggest impact.
Perhaps choose one change in
your eating habits and another in
activity. Remember: don't try to
change everything at once.
For example, maybe you tend
to eat a bowl of ice cream every
night while you watch TV. Can
you switch that ice cream to a
healthier snack? Maybe you can
eat a fruit or a small bowl of ce-
real or just a smaller portion of
ice cream. Maybe you have the
unhealthy habit of skipping meals
and usually means you'll make up
for it later. Can you plan for those
skipped lunches or breakfasts
with a piece of fruit or a healthy
granola bar? For physical activ-
ity can you take 15 minute break
from the TV and go for a walk? Or
maybe you can walk for 15 min-
utes in the morning or at lunch
time. It's your decisions what
are you ready, willing and able to
do for you?


Local mental health group


awarded accreditation


+ Wayne Aldrich, President of
the Hendr- Glades Mental Health
Clinic (HGMHC) Board of Direc-
tors, announced recently that the
HGMHC received its second three-
year national accreditation by the
Joint Commission Accreditation
of Healthcare Organizations (JCA-
HO). Mr. Aldrich commended
Joseph Hosick, Executive Direc-
tor, Wayne Meddock, Clinical
Programs Director, and Dr. Chan-
drahas Bhat, Medical Director for
their leadership and all the staff
for their hard work to attain this
achievement.
"National accreditation is a
major accomplishment for large
healthcare organizations. It is
even more notable for a small
organization like ours," said Mr.
Aldrich. "Our organization spans
33 years and not all those years
have been easy programmatically
or financially. National accredita-
tion is awarded for professional
achievement and competence
and I am very proud of the staff
and the quality behavioral health
services they perform on behalf of
our community".
Mr. Hosick said he was also


very pleased with the, outcome
of the clinic's second JCAHO site
visit.
"We had only a few things to
follow up on to assure continuing
compliance with the ever-evolving
JCAHO standards, but apparently
we were close enough to achieve
the surveyor 's recommendation
for a full three year rating", he
said. He also said that the major
source of funding for the Clinic,
the Florida Department of Chil-
dren and Families, has a goal for
all community behavioral health
providers to earn national accredi-
tation within two years.
"The staff does a wonder-
ful job serving the mental health
and addiction needs of our com-
munity. They have worked hard
this past year to prepare for the
JCAHO accreditation survey and
receiving the notice is a wonder-
ful reward after the recent round
of cuts in Medicaid funding," said
Mr. Hosick.
The information and survey re-
sults and related comments were
posted September 14, on the JCA-
HO web site www.jcaho.org.

years ago, an Education Outreach
committee was formed to assist
students with career planning, job
interviewing and other options
that would make their transition
to college classes and adulthood
smoother. Members agreed that
more attention should be given
to reach these goals.
All people are invited to these
meetings to acquaint themselves
with club members and activi-
ties. Dues are $25 per year and
most meetings are held on the


second Thursday of each month
at the library. Occasionally, lunch
is provided. But overall, members
"brown bag it." The November
meeting will feature a talk and
discussion on financial plan-
ning and investment for women.
The exact date will soon be an-

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

On Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Pahokee Middle/Senior High School cafeteria, the Celebration
of Champions Committee honored the Pahokee Blue Devils football team with a dinner
commemorating their accomplishment of winning the national 7-on-7 football champion-
ship this year. The competition was held in Los Angeles July 18-19. The team's cheer-
leaders and their families were also honored. Special guests included Dan Liftman, the
assistant to Congressman Alcee Hastings and Pahokee commissioners Keith Babb and
Allie Biggs. Lots of good food was served, including chicken, ribs, baked beans, drinks
and championship cake. The Sigma Theta Nu step team performed for the team. The din-
ner ended with a slideshow presentation of the team's trek to the national championship.

West Glades School is excited
about its first ever competitive
sports teams. Coach Wills and
Coach Pio have had a great time
with the volleyball team and have
seen the girls grow tremendously
in spite of the lack of facilities.
Most middle school teams
have a gym, proper equipment
and experience. The girls on the
WGS volleyball team have had to
practice outside in the grass, use
second rate equipment, withstand


heat, rain, wind and anything else
mother nature had to offer.
The coaches are really proud
of all that the girls have accom-
plished this year. Coach Wills said
"We look forward to next year,
when we are able to host teams
at our own facilities. WGS vol-
leyball players have stuck it out
when most players would have
quit. They are young women of
true character and heart."

Navigation locks access becomes restricted


Due to the continued drought
causing record low levels in Lake
Okeechobee, the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) has restricted operation of
the Taylor Creek Navigation Locks
(S-193) on Lake Okeechobee.
This action is being taken to
maintain water levels in the LD-
4 Rim Canal and Taylor Creek by
capturing localized rainfall and to
facilitate watershed recovery in
the area.
The S-192 located at the head
of the historic Taylor Creek was


opened Friday morning to send
basin water south. This effort
to increase water levels in the
area provides boat owners with
an opportunity to remove their
stranded boats safely. Owners are
encouraged to use this opportu-
nity as soon as possible, because
weather conditions may not pro-
vide additional water in the basin
for some time.
Navigation lock operation will
be restricted to twice a day. Times
to lock through will be 6 a.m. and
2 p.m. During these restricted op-


ratingg hours, all boaters at the
navigation lock at the scheduled
time will be locked through, and
then the navigation lock will be
closed until the next scheduled
operating time. Boaters wishing
to lock through at times other
than the restricted hours will be
accommodated but only in the
event of a dire emergency. Locks
at J&S Fish Camp, Buckhead
Ridge, Lakeport and Henry Creek
will remain closed until water lev-
els increase to an elevation that
will permit safe passage.


Boaters are strongly urged to
check inwith the locktenderwhen
traveling onto Lake Okeechobee
and to take notice of the hours of
operation at the navigation lock,
especially before making plans
to stay out late on the lake. For
more information, please contact
the SFWMD Okeechobee Service
Center at (863) 462-5260 or (800)
250-4200. You may also ask the
lock tenders for operating infor-
mation when locking through,
or contact them on VHF Marine
Band Radio on Channel 13.

Keep your pets safe


this Halloween


COLLEGE STATION Hal-
loween can be a doggone scary
time for pets, and there's no
doubt little Sparky can get easily
spooked.
For pets, Halloween hight can
turn into a real nightmare if pre-
cautions aren't taken to protect
them, says Patty Hug, a small ani-
mal veterinary technician in the
College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences at Texas
A&M University.
Like most holidays, Halloween
brings extra guests to your door-
step and into your pet's territory.
Pets accustomed to large.crowds
of visitors should have little
trouble adjusting, says Hug, but
other pets may be frightened by
your new (and strangely dressed)
guests.
"If you are hosting a Hallow-
een party, it is best to designate
an area for your pet, such as the
bedroom, where they can con-
stantly be separated from the
guests," says Hug. "The scent of
the owner in the bedroom will
comfort the animal and keep it
from feeling abandoned."
If you don't have a suitable
area to designate as doggie's
domain, consider boarding your
pet at a separate location. "Let
a trusted friend take care of your
pet for the night or ask your vet-
erinarian if they offer boarding,"
Hug suggests.
If you prefer to keep your
kooky creatures by your side on
All Hollow's Eve, be sure to re-
strain them. "A leash should keep
the pet from frightening trick-or-
treaters and from running out the
door into danger," says Hug.
For pets that live outdoors,
take extra precautions to ensure
there is a substantial barrier be-
tween them and potentially dan-
gerous passers-by.
"Keep your animals in a
fenced area with a ceiling, if pos-
sible," advises Hug. "This may
keep the animal from escaping
and keep children from throwing


candy particularly chocolate,
which is toxic to pets into the
fenced area."
Even when protected by a
fence, some pets become fright-
ened by the constant movement
and noise that comes with Hal-
loween. "When in doubt, move
the pet indoors to a safe area,"
advises Hug.
That advice counts double for
owners of black cats.
While Hug warns that all ifs
are in potentially serious danger
on Halloween, black cats have
particularly bad luck on this
haunting holiday. "Some people
hold superstitions about black
cats and seek to harm them as
part of a malicious joke," warns
Hug. "It is up to the owner to
protect pets from increased risk."
In an attempt to protect black
cats, many pet stores refuse to sell
them on or around Halloween. If
you have black kittens to sell or
give away, November might be a
better month to find your feline
friends new homes.
If your black cat wants to dis-
guise himself this Halloween or
if he just wants to be a cowboy
or astronaut for one night, a cos-
tume is an easy way to do just
that. "It is important to remember
that it isn't natural for animals to
wear costumes, so they may need
to be trained to become comfort-
able in them," says Hug. "Avoid
any costume that impedes their
limbs or obstructs their vision.
Simple, one-piece costumes tied
loosely at the neck are the best
options."
When dressing your home for
Halloween, place decorations
out of your pet's reach, says Hug.
"Never leave your pet alone in a
room with a burning candle or
candy decorations. If you suspect
your pet has eaten candy, look for
vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy and
seizure-like activity. Immediately
contact your veterinarian if your
pet displays these signs."

Danny
Continued From Page 1
When he opened the back end
of the trailer there was a duet of
brays!
Two beautiful sister jennies.
One was all over the color of rich
red mahogany, the other a light
golden coffee-with-cream color
with a white face and legs. They
refused to leave the trailer. Poor
Danny simply stood there star-
ing and braying softly. And then,
Josie began barking and running
back and forth at the back of the
trailer. Danny stood his ground as
the two sisters stayed hunched
together, obviously nervous, and
scared.
Soon Danny edged his way a
little closer to the trailer opening
but the jennies still would not
budge; it was as if their feet were
bolted to the floor of that trailer!
However, it seemed as though
Danny would not give up. He kept
getting a little closer and closer
until his nose was almost touch-
ing one and then the other. So
apparently Josie decided she had
to do something! She moved in
closer to Danny's hind legs and
barked as loud as she could.
She was not nipping at his legs.
That's not what she does. She was
just being loud and insistent. Pret-
ty soon Danny lifted his front legs
up to the edge of the trailer's tail
gate and that did it! The two jen-
nies whirled around and Danny's
legs slid off the tailgate. The two
sisters jumped out on the ground
and all three of them were stand-
ing together at the back of the
trailer until Josie started chasing
them round and round a small
oak and palmetto island. All three
of the donkeys were galloping
close together as Josie ran circles
around them. The scene was a bit
like some of those in the old TV
series Gunsmoke.
They were running so furi-
ously we wondered how long

family donated funds to purchase
land for the park and began con-
struction," explains Park Services
Specialist Dorothy Harris.
Raymond Greene, also an ear-
ly supporter, managed the nearby
$30 million dollar Spanish Style
Harder Hall Hotel overlooking
Little Lake Jackson. The famous
"1900's Boom Day" Harder Hall
Hotel had a brief heyday then
closed when the developer died
in a plane crash. Today, its future
still hangs in the balance as the
hotel is closed but its beautiful
pink towers still loom over the
Lake attracting the attention pf
curious travelers on U.S. 27.

the galloping could go on, how-
ever they were showing no sign
of slowing down until the truck
driver decided he'd had enough
and proceeded to drive his rattly
truck and trailer out of the pas-
ture. Right away the two jennies
wandered off to themselves and
Danny was left standing alone. I'd
almost forgotten that I had some
treats for him in my pocket but he
wasn't very anxious for anything
to eat. I rubbed his head and
scratched his ears and talked to
him as usual. Meanwhile he kept
on the lookout for these two that
had not shown him much cour-
tesy but they were halfway across
the pasture under a big oak pay-
ing no attention to him.
After a while, the two sisters
wandered back to where Josie
and I had made ourselves com-


in front of the high school at 9:30
a.m. for its Nov. 1 meeting. At that
time school, county and city offi-
cials can see for themselves what
route students are taking and plan
for a solution to the potentially
life-threatening problem.
No longer will there be a waiv-
er of fees granted to any entity.
This policy went into effect Oct. 1
and includes but is not limited to
impact fees, building permit fees,
variance fees, zoning and rezon-


fortable. It was then that I got a
better look at both of them, and
like lightning I knew why Danny
and the two "girls" did not take to
each other immediately. The ma-
hogany jenny was obviously preg-
nant! And the other one, with the
golden coat was a maybe.
Nevertheless, Danny is no lon-
ger alone. A week or so has gone
by and not once during this time
have the three of them been seen
together. But early this morning
Danny was heard braying like I've
never heard him before! I headed
toward that sound but even be-
fore coming within full sight of
the pasture, I could see his legs
pawing the air! He was rolling
from one side to the other and
braying with every roll. I could
not help but think that he was
simply showing off for his female


ing fees, special exception fees,
tipping fees, culvert fees, and
driveway fees.

the park and began construction."

When you're hungry, there are

a historic structure built by the
Civilian Conservation Corp (CCC)

CCC is told in the Museum (across

There they were the two of
them, within twenty feet of him,
one on either side.
And then this afternoon when
I went to the fence and called to
him, he came running and the
two sisters were only a short dis-
tance behind him. This time, the
big bag of melon rinds and peel-
ings and bread were gobbled up
in a hurry by all three.
Daisy, Deena and Danny, at
least they're tolerating each other

to say he just might like this new
state of affairs.

Travis and Dolly Dowhen built this gazebo on stilts in 1980.
The structure has been used for many neighborhood socials.
Mr. Dowhen stands on the second floor where he has a lovely
view of the creek.

the Caloosahatchee at Fort Myers.
Then their new adventure began.
After admiring the scenery and
few remaining oxbows, Travis
Dowhen thought he noticed some
sailboat masts that he recognized.
The masts were set back from the
river in Ortona and when they
went to investigate they found
some acquaintences that they had
met on an earlier trip.
The sailboats were tied up in
Turkey Creek, and the Dowhens
decided they did not want to live
anywhere else. It was a perfect
haven for boats and it was pris-
tine. They built some of the first
dwellings on Turkey Creek and it
has been home ever since then.
Travis and Dolly Dowhen have
had their share of adventure from
Wisconsin to the Bahamas. Once,
they even saved the lives of two
people whose boat had been,
swept out to the shipping lanes
from the shores of the Bahamas.
The water was rough, explained
Mr. Dowhen. He thought he heard
seagulls screaming, and when he
took a good look around he real-
ized it was people on a small raft
who were waving and yelling.
The unfortunate tourists had
been swept 60 miles out of the
way and after 48 hours search
parties had given up hope. The'
seas were so bad that it took
Travis Dowhen three attempts
to reach them. He did not know
anything about the huge search
parties when he helped pull them
over the rails onto his sailboat.
The two people were so exhaust-
ed and dehydrated that one of
them began to hallucinate.
Later, when they took them
back to the island the Dowhens
found out they had rescued the
operations manager for the Roll-
ing Stones who were on tour in
the Islands. It was just a coinci-
dence, but Travis and Dolly Dow-
hen had named their sailboat the
Drummer. The local press and
Rolling Stones fans were thrilled
that a "Drummer" had saved the
musicians' friend.
Among Mr. Dowhen's lifelong
vocations are electrician journey-
man, insurance salesman, boat
builder and skipper, tinkerer of
metal, wood and handyman tal-
ents. In the past Mr. Dowhen has
written articles for boating period-
icals like "Cruising World," "Boat-
ing," and "Yachting Magazine."
In 2002 he decided he needed
another goal so he began training
for the Glades County Sheriff's
Auxilliary during Sheriff Jim Rid-
er's administration. Since then
he has received 300 hours of in-
service and training. He is not a
sworn deputy but he is trained to
carry a pistol, and his authority
lies with the sergeant he cruises


Travis Dowhen of Ortona is
the eldest auxilliary member,
of the Glades County Sher-
iff's Office. He wears many
hats and sometimes he par-
ticipates at the Firehouse'
Theater in LaBelle, or sings
karaoke at the Gator Bait near
Pioneer.
with every other Saturday night.
"A Saturday night is not a Sat-
urday night unless you have loud
music or barking dog calls," he-
said.
He;enjoys riding snoigun for
a deputy, but he knows a traffic
stop may not turn out to be rou-
tine stop. When the deputy asks
a driver for the vehicle's registra-
tion, Mr. Dowhen is at the pas-
senger side window observing all
activities of the 'occupants.
Mrs. Dowhen is named Delot
res, but everyone knows her as
Dolly. Before they discovered Or
tona's Turkey Creek, Dolly sailed
among the Bahamian Islands with
her husband for two years. Travis
Dowhen claims she is a very good
sailor. She was asked about what
a woman must do to adjust to life
on a sailboat. Her answer was a
brief understatement.
"A lot," she said dryly with a
gleam in her eyes.
Then of course she went on to
explain that you learn what not to
take on board, and if you forget
something you just do without.
One of her favorite memories
is baking bread with a pressure
cooker in the boat's galley while
they were docked in the Baha-
mas. After the aroma traveled
throughout the anchorage her
neighbors made sure it was gone
within minutes.
Mri, Dowhen looks back on
their lives and recalls a phrase
they saw printed.in their travels,
It was on a plaque that read "the
future is but a speculation. Now
is the time to live tomorrow's
memories." The 'Dowhens took
that message to heart.
"When I am too old to get out
of my chair, I want to play back
the story of my life on the back of
my eyelids," Travis Dowhen said.

Checking your smoke alarms could save your life


It's Fire Prevention Month so
what better time to check your
smoke alarms ensuring the safety
of your home and loved ones.
According to the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA), in
one-quarter of the reported fires
in homes equipped with smoke
alarms, the devices did not work.


Homes without working smoke
alarms now out number those
with no smoke alarms.
A smoke alarm should be
placed outside of every sleeping
area, as well as on every level of
your home. Check your smoke
alarm at least once a month by


pressing the test button until you
hear the audible sound. Persons
who are deaf or heard of hearing
should consider the installation
of an alarm that provides flashing
lights, vibration and/or sound.
Alarm units that are more than
ten years old should be replaced.


If you are not sure how old your
alarm is, it is probably a good
idea to go ahead and replace it.
Monthly maintenance of alarms
should be performed according
to the manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Replace the batteries in
your smoke alarm at least once
a year.


Installation should be made
following the manufacturer's in-
structions. Wall mounted alarms
should be placed no less than
four and no more than twelve
inches from the ceiling. Homes
with vaulted ceilings should place
the alarm at the highest point of
the ceiling. Do not install smoke


alarms near windows, doors, or
ducts where drafts might inter-
fere with their operation.
For more information on
smoke alarm installation, mainte-
nance and facts, visit the National
Fire Protection Association web-
site at www.nfpa.org.


Bronson announces new food and safety partnership


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services will work with
the University of Florida, Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS), to develop and deliver
statewide food safety educational
materials and training for agricul-
tural producers and workers.
The Food Safety Partnership


Program will enhance the safety
and competitiveness of Florida
specialty crops. The program
is funded by the USDA Specialty
Crop Block Grant in the amount
of $253,000 and will be a multi-
year program.
"It is critical to develop and
provide materials, training and
outreach activities, so .that pro-
ducers and production personnel
adopt and adhere to good food
safety practices to protect the


public," Mr. Bronson said.
The training and materials,
which will be printed in both Eng-
lish and Spanish, will be provided
statewide by Florida extension
professionals to producers, field
workers, packers and re-pack-
ers of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Currently, few materials exist to
train farm workers in food safety
practices. Food safety require-
ments must be clearly commu-
nicated at all levels of production


and handling, Mr. Bronson said.
To keep Florida specialty crops
competitive and to ensure safe
consumption, a series of prac-
tices must be followed to prevent
and reduce microbial or chemical
contamination. The Food Safety
Partnership Program will target
crops associated with the highest
risk of food-borne illness and at
the greatest level of production in
Florida.-- tomatoes, leafy greens,


melons and berries.
Florida is the No. 2 producer
of fruits and vegetables in the na-
tion. Cash receipts for agriculture
production in Florida for 2005
were $7.759 billion. According to
USDA data, more than,45 percent
of this amount was derived from
specialty crop production of fresh
fruits and vegetables. The U.S.
Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) reports that 12 percent of
food-borne illnesses associated


with outbreaks are caused by
produce consumption.
Mr. Bronson said the food
safety training and educational
materials will address safe han-
dling, production and packing of
fruits and vegetables.
"While this issue is important
for our growers to remain com-
petitive in the.global marketplace,
it is critically important for the
safety of the consuming public,"
Mr. Bronson said.


Florida Farm Bureau honors three state legislators


GAINESVILLE -- The Florida
Farm Bureau Federation recog-
nized Sen. Mike Haridopolos and
Reps. Denise Grimsley and Bax-
ter Troutman as Legislators of the
Year for 2007 for their leadership,
vision and support of Florida 's
agriculture industry. The awards
were presented at the Federa-
tion's 2007 annual meeting Oct.
10-12 at the Daytona Beach Hil-
ton.
"As the state's general agricul-
tural organization, we are pleased
to recognize these legislators for
their efforts to support the state's


second-largest industry," said
John L. Hoblick, Florida Farm Bu-
reau president.
Sen. Haridopolos represents
Senate District 26, which includes
parts of Brevard, Indian River ,
Osceola and St. Lucie counties.
He has been featured in Florida
Trend magazine as one "...who
could shape Florida politics."
The Hotline recently named him
one of six rising stars among
Republican state legislators. He
chairs the Senate Committee on
Finance and Tax and is Majority
Whip. In the 2007 session of the


Florida Legislature he sponsored
legislation that will encourage
agritourism activities on farms
and ranches.
Rep. Grimsley represents
House District 77, which includes
Hendry, Glades and parts of Col-
lier and Highlands counties. In
only her second term in office,
she chaired the House Agribusi-
ness Committee. She is also a
member of the influential Envi-
ronment and Natural Resources
Council as well the Healthcare
Council. "Widely respected for
her integrity, she has become an


excellent advocate for the agri-
cultural industry, championing
both our substantive and our fis-
cal issues. With her experience in
citrus and her strong ties to the
agriculture industry as a whole,
Denise understands the needs
and challenges facing Florida 's
farmers and ranchers today," said
Ben Parks, Florida Farm Bureau's
director of state legislative affairs.
Rep. Troutman represents
House District 66, which includes
parts of Hardee, Highlands and
Polk counties. He currently serves
as vice chair of both the Environ-


Citrus industry shown resilient by crop estimates


LAKELAND On Oct. 12, the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) released its first citrus
crop forecast for the 2007-2008
season, predicting 168 million
boxes of oranges, a 30 percent in-
crease from last season's total of
129 million boxes.
"We're excited to see the es-
timate of 168 million boxes this
season," said Michael W Sparks,
executive vice president/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "This is a
Testament to the Florida citrus
growers' resiliency and commit-
ment to the industry."
The Florida Citrus Industry
saw a decline in orange produc-
tion from 230 million boxes to 129
million boxes during the five-year
period between the 2001-2002


season and the 2006-2007 season.
This reduction was due in large
part to the effects of hurricanes
and pests and diseases such as
citrus canker and greening.
"As we all know, Florida citrus
has faced a myriad of challenges
throughout the past few years,"
said Mr. Sparks. "Yet the indus-
try continues to persevere and
remain a vital player in Florida's
economy."
The USDA predicts 25 million
boxes of grapefruit will be pro-
duced, down from 27.2 million
last season, an eight percent de-
crease.
The forecast for early and mid-
season varieties in Florida, which
includes 3.1 million boxes of
navels, is projected at 81 million


boxes. Valencia oranges are pro-
jected to total 87 million boxes
this season. For Florida specialty
fruit, the USDA predicts 1.3 mil-
lion boxes of tangelos and 5.1
million boxes of tangerines, in-
cluding 2.6 million boxes of early
varieties and 2.5 million boxes of
honey tangerines. The yield for
frozen concentrate orange juice
(FCOJ) is expected to be 1.6 gal-
lons per 90-pound box.
The complete USDA crop fore-
cast is available from the Florida
Agriculture Statistics Service on-
line at http://www.nass.usda.gov/
Statistics_by_State/Florida/ Publi-
cations/Citrus/cpfp.htm.
The citrus industry is vital to
the state of Florida, providing a
$9.1 billion annual economic


impact, employing nearly 90,000
people, and covering more than
620,000 acres.
Founded in 1948 and cur-
rently representing nearly 10,000
grower members, Florida Citrus
Mutual is the state's largest citrus
growers' organization. For more

House votes to adopt new disaster and

flood insurance counseling services


WASHINGTON, D.C. The
U.S. House of Representatives
unanimously adopted an amend-
ment to the National Affordable
Housing Trust Fund Act (H.R.
2895) authored by U.S. Represen-
tative Alcee L. Hastings (D-Mira-
mar) requiring the Federal gov-
ernment to provide disaster and
flood insurance counseling ser-
vices to low- and middle-income
families who receive assistance
from the Affordable Housing
Trust Fund created in the bill.
"In many regions of our na-
tion more prone to disasters,
appropriate insurance is one of
many added costs of homeown-
ership that can push people to
the edge," said Representative
Hastings on the House floor to-
day. "When you are on the edge,


staying in your home or returning
to your home after a disaster rests
on having the right insurance."
Under the National Affordable
Housing Trust Fund Act, prior to
receiving federal assistance from
the Affordable Housing Trust
Fund for purchasing a home, ap-
plicants are required to complete
a counseling program on finan-
cial literacy, predatory lending,
and foreclosure avoidance. Rep-
resentative Hastings' amendment
expands the counseling require-
ments to include disaster and
flood insurance coverage.
"We in South Florida and the
Treasure Coast are still living the
tragedies of withheld insurance
during the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricanes and so are the victims of
Hurricane Katrina," Representa-


tive Hastings noted. "Knowledge
of the specifics and nuances in di-
saster and flood insurance policies
will encourage further financial
empowerment and homeowner-
ship stability among our nation's
most vulnerable populations."

God in the mission field


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Sometimes the mission field
isn't safe. Sometimes being true
to God's calling calls us to step
out on faith.
Pat and Me-
linda are friends .
of ours who an- .
swered God's .. .
call to go into -
the world and i .
help people hear { *,
and experience
the Word of God John
in their own lan- Hicks
guage. For over
25 years they were with Wycliffe
in Papua New Guinea helping
translate the gospel in a new lan-
guage. They completed this task
and returned to the states.
Shortly after their return, God
called them again. This time, the
call was to go to Nigeria to teach
people how to do translation, so
that they too might be able to
have the gospel in their own lan-
guage.
During their ministry, Pat and
Mel have had many strange and
wonderful experiences, but never
like the one I'd like to share with
you now. Here is their story.
On the first Friday night of our
course, the staff gathered in the


evening to watch a movie. We
were all sitting in the living room,
except Melenda, who had been
sick and was asleep in the adja-
cent bedroom. We had just fin-
ished watching a short video clip
by Campus Crusade, when one of
the women in the kitchen let out a
scream. I turned to look and saw
a man with a pistol to her head
and another holding a rifle.
We all hit the floor at their
command, faces to the ground.
They began frisking everyone,
taking all of the cell phones. Then
one of them fired a shot, which
struck fear into everyone. Within
minutes they had gathered up
nine of our laptop computers and
projectors for class and disap-
peared.
Thank God, no one was hurt,
but three of us, including Me-
lenda and I, found that our new
laptops and passports were now
gone, along with Melenda's wal-
let, money, driver's license and
credit cards.
During the week following the
robbery, we tried to phone the
U.S. Embassy about our stolen
passports. We could only get a
recording telling us to email them
about any emergency and visit
their website for more informa-
tion. We also kept trying to get
a police report to verify the theft,


but they would not cooperate.
Finally, we decided to make
the six-hour drive to the capitol
to see if the embassy would is-
sue us new passports without the
report. We would miss at least
two days of the course, probably
more. We planned to leave on
Sunday, but on Friday afternoon
we heard that our passports had
been found. On Monday, some-
one had found a black plastic
bag by the highway in front of
our house and turned it in to the
principal's office at the nearby
elementary school. It sat in the
office until Thursday, when they
looked inside to see to whorh it
belonged. Someone recognized a
photo of one of us and sent word
that they had found something
of ours. We picked up the pack-
age and sure enough, in it was
our passports, Mel's credit cards
and driver's license, car keys, and
various translated chapters which
Pat's language group had spent
months writing out. Only God
could prompt thieves to neatly
bundle together these items and
surreptitiously return them to us!
Pray that what has been trans-
lated will bear fruit in the lives of
those who hear it and that the
translators will be able to com-
plete their assignments over the
next couple of months.


Children, usefulness, and entertainment


By Brian Hamrick
FBC Clewiston
There's a daily morning ritual
in our house when I wake up our
three year old son. Daddy opens
the door to hear a greeting so rou-
tine, you'd think it was a record-
ing. What is it? "Good morning,
Daddy?" Well, not quite. Actually,
the first words each day out of my
son's mouth are, "Daddy, I want
to watch my show."
Entertainment has a powerful
influence over our lives, for both
adults and children. And we live
in an age where it is more read-
ily available from our own living'
rooms than previous genera-
tions could have ever imagined.
Entertainment in and of itself is
not bad- the ultimate message I
have for you is not to go out and
destroy your TV and computer.


But, as Gardiner Spring observed,
"Many a child has been lost to
himself, to his family, and to God,
because he had little else to do
but indulge himself.... Many have
been rescued from disgrace and
ruin- and pointed toward indus-
try, accomplishment, and hap-
piness- simply because they had
little time for entertainment."
The truth, is, God made man-
kind to do meaningful work
(Genesis 2:15). Ted Tripp rightly
warns, "When children are never
taught about the joys of work,
when they are allowed to be self-
directed in a life of entertainment
and video games, they never en-
ter into understanding the joys of
meaningful work for which they
were created."
Work has a greater meaning
than just enabling survival or
even prosperity. God made man


for work. Are we teaching that
to our children? Let this be an
encouragement to the parents
that their labors in the battle over
homework are worth the strug-
gle. The swim upstream is worth
it for there is nothing automatic
about a child who was constantly
occupied with indulgences be-
coming a hard working member
of society simply because they
got older.
Let us teach our children the
truth about entertainment. They
will never find enough happi-
ness in it to be satisfied. In fact,
they will find even more pleasure
in developing industrious habits
and making positive contribu-
tions in the world. God didn't
make us to.watch TV and movies
all the time or surf the web. He
has something far better in mind-
usefulness!

Can doubting lead to


finding the real truth?


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There was some "flap" when
some letters were discovered
which revealed that Mother
Theresa had some doubts. And
why not? The reaction of some
seemed to be that there was
something wrong with doubts,
and that somehow they detract-
ed from her life and work.
Not so! Someone coined the
phrase, "the searching profes-
siohs" which included those
vocations and
professionsthat
didn't have all
of the answers -,s f
but were work- _..
ing on them
(which ones
do have all of
the answers?) Samuel S.
Finding the Thomas
truth comes
by asking questions; for some
honest searching and for others
"doubt." When finishing gradu-
ate studies, I was approached
to consider a faculty job at the
university where I had been
studying. It certainly would have
been prestigious, a chance to
influence many lives, an oppor-
tunity to expand knowledge and
develop skills to help others. It
certainly was a temptation to
consider it.
I also saw the struggles and
childishness among some pro-
fessors and the red tape, the insti-
tutional problems and pressures
(remember "publish or per-
ish?") I knew it was not my call-
ing. Later, after having returned
to ministry, I was approached by
the head of a search committee
from a nearby Church.
He knew of my other career
option and that I had chosen
to stay in the ministry in spite
of good opportunities if I left.
Unlike some of my colleagues,
I was not "trapped." I had
worked through my reasons for
staying, my temptations to leave
(or perhaps "doubts" for some)
and came up with a conviction
about where I belonged.
One of my seminary class-
_mates wrote to me one day say-
+ : ing, "We always wind up in par-
t-ish minilsry, that must be where
we belong." He too had gone


through testing and searching,
questioning, "doubting" and,
finding his answer and God's
answer for him. It was not from
lack of options, or having "fall-
en into" a career, or not having
seriously searched; as was the
case for some reviewed by the
Church search committee.
The committee head knew
that the call had been tried and
tested; affirmed and questions
were put to rest. The "doubts" or
temptations were healthy ones;
leading to affirmations. One of
the ministry journals spoke of
healthy periods of honest re-
evaluation and searching in any
ministry; why not? In fact, the
outcome of ministry, including
the ministry of Mother Theresa
was a continued presence and
witness among those God had
called her to serve. Her life wit-
nesses to the unspoken "now
I know why I am called to do
what I do.". There is that apostle
who has his own questions. He
was not around when Jesus first
appeared to the other apostles
and insists on seeing the marks
of the nails from the crucifixion
of Jesus, and putting his finger
in the wound in His side (John
20:24ff). Jesus goes out of His
way to accede to Thomas' de-
mand; the questions are hon-
est ones and the doubt is un-
derstood. He says to Thomas a
week later "Put your finger here;
see my hands. Reach out your
hand and put it in My side. Stop
doubting and believe (v.27)." Je-
sus goes out of His way to show
Thomas that his faith was not in
vain; the search is over. There is.
a difference between cynical de-
nial and honest searching, ques-
tioning, doubtfulness.
The first will lead to a dark
night and the second will lead
to truth and affirmation. I think
that people who never question
(or never admit questioning) or
who never doubt, never really
believe. Those who say they've
never questioned make me won-
der. It says they've never really
searched; never come to the kind
of affirmations made by Peter or
my namesake. Doubting The-
resa? No. Reaffirming Theresa,
searching Theresa, honest The-
resa, devoted Theresa, and one
day "no doubt"- Saint Theresa.


What about the thief on the cross?


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
People who deny that baptism
is necessary are always calling
our attention to the thief on the
cross. They correctly point out
that Jesus said to one of these
thieves, "Verily I say unto thee,
"Today, shalt thou be with me
in paradise" (Luke 23:43). Then
they observe that the thief was
not baptized. Evidently they think
this leaves a loophole and bap-
tism is not essential.
First, let us notice, there is
a very basic misunderstanding
here. The matter of distinguish-
ing between Old and the New
Testament is overlooked. The Old
Testament was a "schoolmaster
to bring us unto Christ" (Gala-
tians 3:24-27) and it lasted until
the death of Christ on the cross
(Colossians 2:13). Now listen to
Hebrews 9:15-17. "And for this
cause he is the mediator of the
New Testament, that by means of
death, for the redemption-of the
transgressions that were under
the first Testament, they which
are called might receive the prom-

ise of the eternal inheritance. For
where a testament is, there must
also of necessity be the death of
the testator. For a testament is of
force after men are dead: oth-
erwise it is of no strength at all
while the testator liveth."
The New Testament (or cov-
enant) is exactly like a man mak-
ing out his last will and testament.
He makes his will, but it cannot
be enforced until he dies. As long
as he is living he can change the
will as he pleases and do as he
likes with that which he has to
give. But once he dies, the will is
legally in force. This is true with
the Lord Jesus Christ. Before his
death, the New Testament was
not in force. He could do as he
pleased pertaining to that which
he had to give, in this case for-
giveness and eternal life. Thus,
he promised the repentant thief
that he would be with him in
paradise. But once the New Tes-
tament was sealed by his death, it


had to be executed as he planned
it and as his apostles declared it,
they being his "official" witnesses
(Acts 1:8, 22; John 14:26). After
this New Testament was in force
(following the death and resur-
rection of Jesus), he gave the
great commission to his disciples,
and said, "He that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved." (Mark
16:16). The answer to the ques-
tion of salvation must come from
this side of the cross.
Also, please examine Luke
5:23, 24. Some were accusing
Jesus of blasphemy because he
healed and forgave sins, only God
having such authority. Our Lord
answered them, "What reason ye
in your hearts? Whether is easier
to say, Thy sins b'e forgiven thee;
or to say, Rise up and walk? But
that ye may know that the Son
of man hath power (authority)
upon earth to forgive sins." Jesus
could forgive sins in any manner
he chose while on earth. But after


He died the testament had to be
carried out as he left it.
Finally, let us add, it would
have been impossible for the
thief at that time, even if he had
the opportunity, to have submit-
ted to the baptism of the New
Testament. Because the New Tes-
tament was not in not only force,
but also listen to this: "Know ye
not, that so many of us as were
baptized into Jesus Christ were
baptized into his death? There-
fore we are buried with him by
baptism into death; that like as
Christ was raised up from the
dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in
newness of life" (Romans 6:3, 4).
Now we ask, how could the thief
be buried with Christ by baptism
into his death (and resurrected
with him) when Christ was still
alive and had not been buried?
The baptism of the New Testa-
ment did not and could not yet
apply.

WEST PALM BEACH To an un-
trained eye it might be mistaken for
an average housefly, but Lixadmon-
tia franki has a greater purpose. This
species of fly is the latest weapon in
a biological battle to control an inva-
sive species of weevil threatening na-
tive plants in Florida's Everglades and
beyond.
The South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, in partnership with the
University of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, is releasing
dozens of these tiny flies' today as part
of an ongoing study to determine
their effectiveness in controlling the
Mexican bromeliad weevil, Metama-
sius callizona.
Introduced species control is a
key component of the District's en-
vironmental restoration mission,
including the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan (CERP)..The
District has invested $442,000 this
year on continuing efforts to reclaim
Florida's native habitat from hostile
invasive plant and insect species, in-
cluding $17,000 on the fly research.
Altogether, Florida has invested close
to $2 billion toward CERP projects
designed to restore, protect and pre-
serve the water resources of central
and southern Florida, with a primary
focus on reviving the nation's unique
Everglades ecosystem.
Invasive species such as melaleu-
ca, old world climbing fern and Aus-
tralian pine, as well as the Mexican
bromeliad weevil, can dramatically
change Florida's habitat. In moving
to Florida, these species left behind
natural predators that kept them in
check in their native habitat. Scien-
tists look for natural control methods
in the species' home ranges to iden-
tify ways for controlling them here.
"Great solutions to some of our
complex, environmental restoration
challenges are coming from the ap-
plication of cutting-edge science,"

Everglades restoration projects help area


WEST PALM BEACH Boosting
South Florida's economic outlook is
successfully proving to be an added
bonus of Everglades restoration as
employment and business opportu-
nities continue to expand with the
South Florida Water Management
District. The District recently strength-
ened its partnerships with workforce
development organizations, com-
munity colleges and non-profits to
train area workers and provide the
goods and services needed to tackle
$1.8 billion in Everglades Restoration
projects.
Two District initiatives, the Small
Business Enterprise program and
Workforce Training Initiative, are
functioning in concert to boost con-
tract prospects for local businesses in
the Palm Beach, Hendry, Lee, Martin
and St. Lucie county areas, while at
the same time increasing the avail-
ability of skilled workers needed to
operate bulldozers, drive dump trucks
and pour concrete. These efforts are
helping to expand contract prospects
for minority businesses as well.
To date, more than $11 million
has been spent throughout Florida
on subcontractors and direct pur-
chases for restoration projects -- ap-
proximately 75 percent of the total
service dollars -- with more than $5
million spent within the District's 16-
county region. In the immediate Pa-
hokee, South Bay Belle Glade and
Clewiston areas, approximately $2.2
million has been spent to date. One


example is the purchase of vehicles
needed to support work on the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area Reservoir
project near South Bay. More than 30
vehicles have been purchased from
Belle Glade area dealerships.
"Everglades Restoration projects
are bringing measurable improve-
ment to local economies and the en-
vironment," said District Governing
Board Member Patrick Rooney. "It's a
winning combination."

Workforce Training
Initiative
To increase the availability of
qualified local workers, the District
contracted with the Education Center
of Southwest Florida and with Palm
Beach Community College to train
and certify workers in heavy equip-
ment operation and construction
trades.
The District has invested more
than $1.2 million in partnerships with
these two institutions. To date, their
training programs have produced
131 construction craft graduates and
130 heavy equipment graduates.
Depending on experience and cer-
tifications, construction graduates
can earn $12 to $35 an hour; heavy
equipment graduates can earn $12 to
$22 an hour.
To date, Southern Everglades Res-
toration work has created more than
250 jobs, and generated more than $5
million in payroll to area residents.


Small Business

Enterprise
To expand its vendor lists, the
District has certified more than
1,000 small businesses to work on
Everglades Restoration projects.
Through the Small Business Enter-
prise program, these businesses are
given additional consideration when
the District solicits project bids and
proposals. The list of certified busi-
nesses is also made directly available
to large contractors seeking qualified
subcontractors.
The Small Business Enterprise
program is heavily promoted at the
grassroots level through community
resource groups, African-American
and Hispanic builder and trade associ-
ations, ministerial alliances, local gov-
ernments, chambers of commerce
and workforce resource centers.
In addition to the economic bene-
fits, Southern Everglades Restoration
projects will provide more flood con-
trol and water supply options, along
with the potential for public recre-
ational opportunities. Projects now
under way include three massive
aboveground reservoirs designed to
capture and store stormwater runoff,
providing an additional water source
to meet irrigation and urban demands
for water -- after environmental needs
are met. For additional information
about Everglades Restoration please

Restoration Plan website at wwxv.ev-
ergladesplan.org.


Ag program application deadline coming soon


The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Natural Resources Conser-
vation Service has a conservation
program that can help farmers and
ranchers pay for conservation prac-
tices that prevent erosion, improve
water quality, and provide habitat for
wildlife.
The Environmental Quality Incen-
tives Program (EQIP) is a key pro-
gram under the 2002 Farm Bill that
provides federal cost-share funds to
working farms and ranches for con-
servation improvements. The 2008
EQIP application period will remain
open until Nov. 13.
EQIP provides incentive payments
and cost-share funds to private agri-


cultural and livestock producers to
implement conservation practices.
The program promotes agricultural
production and environmental qual-
ity as compatible goals. Like all NRCS
programs, participation is voluntary.
The early.deadline is a continuing
effort to improve the funding process.
The accelerated program cut-off date
will allow producers time to com-
plete practices during the first years
of their contracts. The earlier appli-
cation deadline date will also help
accommodate field work in prepara-
tion for fall projects.
The accelerated process makes
early contact with the NRCS staff
more important than ever. NRCS


would encourage our farmers and
ranchers to come in and visit with
our local field staff now. We know
that producers that get in early have
more time to resolve certain program
or land eligibility issues.
As with all NRCS programs, EQIP is
a voluntary program that is intended
to yield high quality, productive soils;
clean and abundant water; healthy
plant and animal communities; clean
air; an adequate energy supply; and
working farms and ranchlands.
For more information on the 2008
EQIP program, contact your local
NRCS District Conservationist by call-'
ing (863) 674-5700.


Be sure to keep your pets safe this Halloween


COLLEGE STATION Halloween
can be a doggone scary time for pets,
and there's no doubt little Sparky can
get easily spooked.
For pets, Halloween night can turn
into a real nightmare if precautions
aren't taken to protect them, says
Patty Hug, a small animal veterinary
technician in the College of Veteri-
nary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University.
Like most holidays, Halloween
brings extra guests to your doorstep
and into your pet's territory. Pets
accustomed to large crowds of visi-
tors should have little trouble adjust-
ing, says Hug, but other pets may be
frightened by your new (and strange-
ly dressed) guests.
"If you are hosting a Halloween
party, it is best to designate an area
for your pet, such as the bedroom,
where they can constantly be separat-
ed from the guests," says Hug. "The
scent of the owner in the bedroom


will comfort the animal and keep it
from feeling abandoned."
If you don't have a suitable area to
designate as doggie's domain, con-
sider boarding your pet at a separate
location. "Let a trusted friend take
care of your pet for the night or ask
your veterinarian if they offer board-
ing," Hug suggests.
If you prefer to keep your kooky
creatures by your side on All Hol-
low's Eve, be sure to restrain them.
"A leash should keep the pet from
frightening trick-or-treaters and from
running out the door into danger,"
says Hug.
For pets that live outdoors, take
extra precautions to ensure there is a
substantial barrier between them and
potentially dangerous passers-by.
"Keep your animals in a fenced
area with a ceiling, if possible," ad-
vises Hug. "This may keep the ani-
mal from escaping and keep children
from throwing candy -- particularly


chocolate, which is toxic to pets
- into the fenced area."
Even when protected by a fence,
some pets become frightened by the
constant movement and noise that
comes with Halloween. "When in
doubt, move the pet indoors to a safe
area," advises Hug.
That advice counts double for
owners of black cats.
While Hug warns that all pets are
in potentially serious danger on Hal-
loween, black cats have particularly
bad luck on this haunting holiday.
"Some people hold superstitions
about black cats and seek to harm
them as part of a malicious joke,"
warns Hug. "It is up to the owner to
protect pets from increased risk."
In an attempt to protect black cats,
many pet stores refuse to sell them
on or around Halloween. If you have
black kittens to sell or give away, No-
vember might be a better month to
find your feline friends new homes.

South Florida Water Manage-
ment District is releasing bio-
control flies to fight invasive
species in the Everglades.
said South Florida Water Manage-
ment District Executive Director Carol
Wehle. "The District is optimistic that
these biological controls will prove to
be another valuable tool in protect-
ing our native species and the Ever-
glades."
Scientists anticipate that this flywill
provide an environmentally friendly.
way to control what bromeliad en-
thusiasts have dubbed the "evil wee-
vil." This invasive, introduced spe-
cies lays its eggs inside the leaves of
several varieties of native bromeliads.
When the weevil larvae emerge, they
feed on the leaves and stems, often
destroying the plant in the process.
The weevil is native to Mexico and
was first sighted in Broward County
in 1989. Today it can be found in 21
Florida counties.
Throughout South Florida, brome-
liads are a significant part of the eco-
system. While contributing to native
plant bio-diversity, bromeliads also
have deep centers that serve as wa-
ter-filled reservoirs, providing homes
and hunting grounds for native frogs,


birds and insects.
Extensive study by University of
Florida scientists has shown that
Lixadmontia franki combats the wee-
vil by laying its eggs inside the wee-
vil's body. Working from within, the
fly maggots then destroy the weevil,
preventing it from harming bromeli-
ads. Rigorous research has demon-
strated that the fly will not impact
agriculture, humans or native plants
and animals.
Scientists hope that the flies re-
leased today will establish sustain-
able, breeding colonies to protect na-
tive bromeliads. They have also been
released at the Big Cypress National
Preserve in Collier County, the En-
chanted Forest Sanctuary in Broward
County and the Lake Rogers Park in
Hillsborough County.
Lixadmontia franki is a species first
scientifically identified in 1993 in the
Honduran mountains. All of the flies
released today were raised at the Uni-
versity of Florida's Norman C. Hay-
slip Biological Control Research and
Containment Laboratory near Fort
Pierce. Today's fly release and others
in recent months are the culmination
of 17 years of research to' ensure the
flies will attack only Mexican bro-
meliad weevil larvae. The permitted
releases required approval by several
government agencies.
"We are grateful to the Florida
Council of Bromeliad Societies and to
the South Florida Water Management
District for their generous support of
this research," said John Capinera,
Ph.D., University of Florida professor
and entomology department chair.
"Officials with the two organizations
have seen the devastation of our na-
tive bromeliads, and they understand
its value to Florida's environment.
We are all working together for the
same goal to save Florida's native
bromeliads from destruction."
