SFWMD may acquire acreage


Highway frontage
and river frontage
in question
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Repre-
sentatives from SFWMD were
present at the Glades County
Board of County Commission-
ers meeting Oct. 22.
Benita Whalen, Okeechobee
center director, announced to
the county that the South Flor-


ida Water Management District
Governing Board will conduct a
public hearing in Key Largo to
decide if it needs to add a par-
cel of Glades County to its work
plan of eligible projects.
Agnes Ramsey, of SFWMD,
the deputy director of Ever-
glades Restoration Planning
Department, explained that this
project would be a treatment
and testing facility to remove,
or filter nitrogen and suspended
solids from the Caloosahatchee
River water.
The nearly 2,000-acre parcel


is eight miles east of LaBelle and
is located north of S.R. 80 on
the south side of the Caloosa-
hatchee. The Ortona Lock and
campground would be part of
the proposed site.
When a government entity
acquires private property, the ad
valorem taxes would be lost to
the county. There is a Payment
In Lieu of Taxes program known
as PILT, but that generally is a
short lived alternative to taxes;
and is considered inadequate
by local officials.
"This is some of the prime


Frightful fun: A Moore Haven Halloween


area for development that we
have on S.R. 80, and any fu-
ture growth in Glades County is
greatly restricted by wetlands,
the Indian reservation, and Lykes
Brothers owns over two-thirds
of the county. There is very little
land for us to develop. We live
upon the ad valorem taxes. Tal-
lahassee has greatly restrained
our financial ability to provide
services for our citizens," said
board Chairman Butch Jones.
Ms. Ramsey, acknowledged
the county's desire for com-
mercial use of S.R. 80's highway


frontage, the resulting loss of ad
valorem taxes and for its lack of
riverfront for public use.
"In the next 20 years if some-
thing isn't done, the average
man won't have a place on the
Caloosahatchee to even put his
foot on. It will be taken up and
bought up. You won't be able
to set foot on it unless you ark
extremely wealthy or privilege&.
There is value in having some
river front that a working class
citizen can enjoy," said Corn-

GLADES COUNTY Dur-
ing the county meeting of Oct.
22 the issue of agriculture pol-
lutants such as nitrogen and
phosphorus were discussed as
well as the ill-fated government
decision of the 1960s to make a
channel out of the meandering
Kississimee River.

The chairman of the board,

public and visiting officials that
the "Crackers" of yesteryear
begged government agencies
to not channelize the Kississi-
mee. It was a natural filtration
system, but they did not listen
and straightened it anyway. ,
"And we've been ruined
ever since," said Mr. JOnes, re-
ferring to south Florida's pollu-
tion woes.

Special to Glades County
Democrat
This year marks the 10th
Anniversary of the Women's
Memorial Foundation. In honor
of this celebration, there is the
vital need to register as many
women veterans or soldiers
past and present as possible.
The Women's Memorial is
the only major national memo-
rial honoring all women who
have served in our nation's de-
fense throughout history.
The Memorial is located in


Arlington, Va.
A primary mission of the
Foundation and a major con-
tinuing effort is to identify and
register with the Memorial the
over two million women who
have served or who are serving
in all branches of the United
States Armed Forces.
There has been little infor-
mation dissimilated over the
country in general about the
part women have played in de-
fense of this country. This 10"'
Anniversary of the Women's
Memorial Foundation is the


ideal time to call attention to
the many services of women
who have been or who are in
the armed services and to rec-
ognize the importance of the
roles they have played in de-
fending our freedom and our
way of life.
The Foundation maintains
and operates the Memorial
Education Center, manages a
world-class archive of docu-
ments and artifacts, as well as
displaying memorabilia related
to women's service in defense
of our nation.

Tim Mahoney calls for passage of Children's


WASHINGTON D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
recently spoke on the floor of the
U.S. House of Representatives in
support of the Children's Health
Insurance Program Reauthoriza-


tion Act. The House is expected to
vote on the bill later today, which
would give healthcare to 10 mil-
lion needy children through the
Children's Health Insurance Pro-
gram (SCHIP).


The President vetoed a bill to
reauthorize SCHIP in early Oc-
tober. The new bill strengthens
rules to verify citizenship, phase's
childless adults out of the program
a year earlier than the previous


bill, and caps income eligibility
for the pri,,.r.iii at 300 percent of
the poverty level. In addition, the
bill further minimizes the "crowd-
out" of private insurance.


Everglades clean-up will be additional 6,000 acres


WEST PALM BEACH Ever-
glades' water quality received a
healthy boost' as 6,000 additional
acres of land in rural Palm Beach
County were fully converted to
treatment wetlands aimed at
cleaning up water flowing into the
River of Grass. The State has now
converted a total of 52,000 acres
of former farmland into Storm-
water Treatment Areas (STAs).
The shallow, plant-filled marshes
are part of Florida's investment of
$1.8 billion in water quality im-
provements for the Everglades.
Using "green technology," the
STAs naturally cleanse water of
excess nutrients before it flows
overland into the Everglades.
"Because of the state's con-
tinued commitment to Ever-
glades restoration, we are already
achieving environmental results,"
said Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection Secretary
Michael Sole. "Florida is a role
model for other states, a prime


example of the monumental en-
vironmental restoration that can
be achieved with dedicated fund-
ing, effective projects and a vision
for success."
Treatment wetlands are the
workhorse for water quality im-
provements in the South Florida
ecosystem. A decade ago, phos-
phorus concentrations in Ever-
glades-bound waters averaged
170 parts per billion (ppb). To-
day, the STAs are treating water
to phosphorus concentrations
below 50 ppb and in some cases
as low as 12 to 14 ppb, surpass-
ing early predictions for the suc-
cess of using green technology
for water quality improvements.
The State of Florida and the
South* Florida Water Manage-
ment District constructed the first
five Everglades STAs in operation,
including the world's largest con-
structed wetland at 17,000 acres.
The District completed the 6,000
acres of initial STA expansions at


three sites (STA-2, STA-5 and STA-
6). Another 12,000 acres of STAs
are currently in design as part of
secondary expansions.
"The District is to be com-
mended for timely additions to
the Stormwater Treatment Ar-
eas systems," said Eric Draper,
Deputy Director for Audubon of
Florida. "This newest Stormwater
Treatment Area adds increased
certainty that with proactive up-
stream water quality Best Man-
agement Practices, clean water
will flow into the Everglades"
Over the last decade, the STAs
- combined with improved agri-
cultural practices have prevent-
ed 2,678 metric tons of phospho-
rus from reaching the Everglades.
During Water Year 2007 (May '06
through April '07), the STAs cap-
tured and treated 900,000 acre-
feet of water, reducing phospho-
rus loads to the famed River of
Grass by 71 percent.
"Accelerating our restoration


projects like the expansion of
constructed wetlands provides
our taxpayers with immediate
environmental, recreation and
economic benefits," said SFWMD
Executive Director Carol Wehle.
"The District remains firmly fo-

Governor Crist and Secretary Sole
for their continued support and

tecting Florida's River of Grass."
In 1994, the Everglades For-
ever Act mandated and funded
construction of treatment wet-
lands aimed at lowering phos-
phorus levels for water entering
the Everglades. In 2004, Florida
launched Acceler8 an ambi-

eight key Everglades restoration

this accelerated effort.


Mahoney introduces property tax relief legislation


WASHINGTON, D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
introduced bipartisan legislation
to cut taxes for Florida hom-
eowners on Thursday, Oct. 26.
The Homeowners' Property Tax
Relief Act of 2007 could save over
976,000 Floridians more than
$2,000 per year in federal taxes. In
Florida, where property taxes are
higher, savings could be much
greater. The legislation provides
this tax cut by allowing all Flo-
ridians to deduct state and local


property taxes from their federal
income tax return. Currently, tax-
payers who file under the Alterna-
tive Minimum Tax are prohibited
from taking this deduction.
Mahoney's legislation comes
at a time when Florida home-
owners are being hit hard by the
staggering costs of property taxes
and homeowners insurance.
"The Homeowners' Property
Tax Relief Act would cut taxes for
Florida families struggling under
the high costs of property taxes


and homeowners' insurance. In
the past six year, property taxes
have doubled but family incomes
have not. More and more middle-
income Florida families are bear-
ing a tax burden beyond their
means and are unable to pay
their mortgage. Time is running
out. We must act quickly to pro-
tect the American dream of hom-
eownership," said Congressman
Tim Mahoney.
Although the AMT was origi-
nally intended to affect only the


wealthiest Americans, it is en-
snaring more and more middle
class families. As a result, many
families on, tight budgets are
struggling under an increasingly
unmanageable tax burden. While
the AMT initially affected fewer
than 20,000 taxpayers, this year,
it is expected to affect 23 mil-
lion Americans, including over
976,000 Floridians. In Florida's
16th Congressional District, over
46,000 taxpayers are expected to
file AMT returns this year.

Mahoney: Bush
should sign
At a rally held on the banks
of the Indian River Lagoon last
Saturday, Congressman Tim Ma-
honey urged President Bush to
sign the long-awaited Water Re-
sources Development Act of 2007
(WRDA). Bush has vowed to veto
WRDA due to its large budget -
$1.8 billion dollars for Florida and
a total of $23 billion nationally.
However, Congress passed the
legislation with a wide enough
margin to override the veto.
In addition to authorizing
major environmental restora-
tion projects for the east coast
and the Big Cypress' Picayune
Strand, the bill also includes Lake
Okeechobee dike repairs and
building a new drinking water
treatment plant for the poverty-
stricken communities of South
Bay, Belle Glade, and Pahokee on
the shores of Lake Okeechobee.
At the dockside press confer-
ence, Representative Mahoney
said, "When I got into office it was
very clear to me that in my dis-
trict, which runs from where we
are standing here in Stuart all the
away to Punta Gorda, I'm blessed
to have not only the St. Lucie, but
the Caloosahatchee; I've got the
Kissimmee; I've got three-quar-


ters of Lake Okeechobee. There's
no politician in the state other
than the governor that's got a
bigger worry about water quality
than Florida's 16th Congressional
District. It became very clear to
me this had to be the very first
thing we deal with.
Representative Mahoney told
the group of more than 50 en-
vironmental, agricultural, and
water management represen-
tatives, "There has not been a
single WRDA bill passed in seven
years. WRDA, by itself is not the
answer, but it is the first step we.
have to take in order to deliver on
the promise that the federal gov-
ernment made to the people of
Florida over ten years ago when it
said it would clean up and fix the
Everglades.
"The president has to make a
fateful decision this week. Does
he sign the bill into law and start
to invest back into our water-
ways?" said Mahoney.
While challenging the presi-
-dent, Mahoney admits the cost,
saying "Yes, this bill's expensive,
but it's expensive because it has
been neglected. This isn't just an
environmental issue; we all know
this is the basis of our economy."
"One of the things we've been
working on, and that was an im-
portant part of the Farm Bill, is
trying to expand conservation

programs, so that we can get the
ranchers and farmers working
in conjunction with the environ-
mentalists to start reversing this
problem," said Mahoney, Flori-
da's only member on the pow-
erful House Agriculture Commit-
tee.
On the issue of government
purchasing more land, Mahoney
believes there simply isn't enough
money to buy all the land and that
it will be much faster and cheap-
er if we get agriculture involved in
solutions, such as storing water
in natural retention areas along
the Kissimmee River.
Recognizing the differing in-

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information to your brain.
The high blood sugar levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
Nearly. half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
lar and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our office at
(863) 675-0761 for more information or to set-up and appoint-
ment.


S"I would definitely use this hospital again."

students participating.
The theme this year was
Ride the Wave to FCAT Suc-
cess, which also went along
with the school's ocean theme.
We had three waterslides, an
obstacle course, tug of war and
other games as well as music
played all day by fourth grade
teacher Mr. Snowden. Included
with the obstacle course was a
poster contest and at the end of
the day the winners were some
of Ms. Decker's fourth grade
group and they were all given
a cash prize. We did however,
have a slight delay in set up that
was beyond our control, but all
the group leaders (which were
fourth through seventh grade
teachers) rallied to make the
best out of the situation. The
SAC committee really appreci-
ated their willingness to help
make this a FUN DAY for the
students. We do believe that de-
spite the set back all had a great
time!
The students were provided
lunch by the cafeteria, Mr. Bass
grilled hot dogs and unlimited
popcorn and dther snacks were
provided throughout the day as
well.
At the end of the day, we had
drawings for cash awards which
went to the following students:
Fbur-$25- Brooke Smith, Vin-
ton Lewis, Jarren Beck and

awards were donated and pre-

donation again this year as well
as him taking the time to come
be a part of our Fun Day.,All the
students were also rewarded
with Ride the Wave to FCAT
Success Fun Day T-shirts, which
were printed by Maxi's Screen
Printing, and they looked great.
These students really work
hard on the FCAT every year
and we hope by rewarding them
this way it will give them the in-
centive to do their best again.
It also shows the younger kids
what they have to look forward
to when they try hard.
The SAC committee would
like to thank all. the teachers,
staff and volunteers, as well as

Alico restructures land sale agreements


LaBELLE announced on
Oct. 25, that its wholly owned
subsidiary, Alico-Agri, Ltd. (the
Company) has restructured one
of its previously announced
agreements with The Ginn De-
velopment Companies (Ginn) for
the sale ofAlico-Agri's property in
Lee County.
The Company has three sepa-
rate agreements with Ginn. The
original contracts were entered
into in 2001 and 2003 for approxi-
mately 5,609 acres near Florida
Gulf Coast University. The total
amounts for each contract are:
$62.9 million for the first contract
for which the Company holds
a note receivable for $54.5 mil-
lion; $63.5 million for the second
contract, which is structured as
a series of option payments; and
$12.0 million for the third con-
tract, for which the Company
holds a note receivable for $11.4
million.
The first contract, for a sale
which closed in July 2005, was re-

~4


structured to reduce the amount
of principal due on Sept. 28, from
$12.3 million to $0.4 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, 2008 from $12.3 million to
approximately $3.5 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, from $14.1 million to $12.0
million; and the amount of prin-
cipal due on Sept. 28, 2010 from
$15.8 million to $12.0 million.
The restructuring extends the
term one year for a balloon pay-
ment on Sept. 28, 2011 of approx-
imately $26.6 million. The note
was also revised to set the interest
rate retroactively to July, 2005 and
base it on LIBOR plus 1.5 percent.
The future payment of all interest
outstanding will be made on a
quarterly basis for the remaining
term of the note based on LIBOR
plus increasing percentage incre-
ments. The payment terms for
the second and third contracts
remain unchanged.
The Company has received a
payment of $6.8. million related


to the first contract. This pay-
ment consisted of $0.4 million of
principal, $6.1 million of interest
and the balance as an expense
reimbursement. Additionally, the
Company received payment of
$3.6 million for a one year exten-
sion on the option contract, and a
payment of $0.7 million for inter-
est due on the third contract.
Alico Chairman and CEO John
Alexander stated that he was
pleased that the Ginn contracts
could be restructured in a mutu-
ally acceptable fashion. "Due to
complications in the permitting
process and an overall slowdown
in the real estate market, we are
working with Ginn to help them
succeed in this project. We con-
tinue to be excited about the ben-
efits that the Ginn communities
will bring to the Ft. Myers area.
We believe that the contractual
modifications are mutually bene-
ficial to Ginn and the Alico share-
holders."


If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Thank you for all the love, support and prayers we will miss forever,

Ornamental grasses are just right for this place


By Angela Sachson
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
It is not a secret that I write
articles about things that inter-
est me and then hope they inter-
est you too. Often I wish I knew
more about a subject or want to
find out why some plants do or
don't thrive in my garden. I re-
search and share. Recently I've
been thinking about grasses.
Ornamental grasses are some
of my favorites. They are beautiful
and pretty well care free. I have a
book called The Encyclopedia of
Ornamental Grasses and at the
end of the description for a partic-
ular cultivar the author lists pests
and problems. Almost every one
of several hundred entries says
"No known pests or problems."
These are my kind of plant.
Many are drought tolerant


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

once established and there are
also many grasses which grow in
or near the water. There are grass-
es of every size from little 4-inch
blue fescue to line your paths, to
the 60 foot bamboos which are
also in the grass family.
Grasses not only come in all
sizes, they come in a variety of
shapes and colors. Some arch,
some are upright, some grow
up and then arch. Grasses come
in clumping and running-you
want clumping. Please trust me
on this. We have enough plants
running around here.


Ornamental grasses can be
used in Florida Yards as accent
plants, ground covers, border
edging, and can even screen out
undesirable views. While their
popularity has increased in re-
cent years, they also have a his-
tory. They were an important part
of Victorian gardens in England.
Still, you may have to look around
to find the size and shape grass
you want unless you are seeking
purple fountain grass-which is
everywhere.
Here are some interesting
grasses that grow well in central
and south Florida.
Muhly Grass: Muhly is a
Florida native which grows about
4 feet tall. The native is called
Purple Muhly, but the blooms are
actually pink and held above the
foliage for a beautiful fall display.
It is easy to.grow and drought tol-


erant once it is established. There
is another Muhly called bamboo
Muhly which grows to six feet tall
and looks like very feathery bam-
boo. This one is a good screening
plant.
Lemon Grass: I recommend
this grass because it is beautiful
and also smells great and is ed-
ible. It has strappy leaves, much
less dainty than Muhly and it is
great planted on a slope to hold
the soil. When you get ready to
divide lemon grass (in about two
years) you will understand why.
The roots are deep and strong!
Tiger grass: If you like bam-
boo but don't have room for it, or
want a screen that is not too tall,
here is a plant to consider. Tiger
Grass is wonderful eight-foot tall
grass that looks like bamboo but
does not send out runners, grows
easily and speedily. This grass has


large linear leaves and a mani-
cured look. It needs more water
than lemon and muhly grasses.
We recently learned that most
shrubs need about three liters of
water a week to get established
- and that goes for ornamental
grasses too.
Here is the question I was ask-
ing when I decided to research
ornamental grasses. "Does pH
level have an especially impor-
tant part to play in ornamental
grass culture?" I found that pH
level is not always addressed in
articles about grasses. In general,
grasses are considered tolerant of
a wide variety of soils and pH lev-
els. So, we may not always know
exactly what an interesting grass
requires.
Well composted organic mat-
ter may be mixed with the sandy
Florida soil when installing any


plant. Three inches of mulch will
also help your new plant thrive,
but keep it off the top of the root
ball.
There are hundreds of won-
derful ornamental grasses. You
can learn about them online as
well as in your county extension
office where we have Master
Gardeners to help select the right
grass for the right place.

Finesse fishing in shallow water


By Skeet Reese
One of the many great things
about fishing is that presents end-
less possibilities. Pretty much ev-
eryone takes to the water with a
single goal in mind: to catch fish.
Some people use artificial lures,
other use bait; but within these
two types of fishing lie a multi-
tude of options for getting more
fish in the boat.
This time of year, a lot of the
bass are in shallow water for a
couple of different reasons. First,
they're chasing shad, which are
spawning in the backs of coves.
Second, as the nights get cooler,
the surface temperature of the
water is also cooling down. So,
when the sun does rise, the first
water to be warmed the most is
the shallow water. There's a lot
of ways to fish these shallow bass
this time of year, but one that is
sometimes overlooked is a finesse
approach.
When most bass anglers think
of shallow-water bass fishing,
most of them think of shallow-


running crankbaits, big Texas-
rigged plastic worms or flipping a
jig. All are very effective, but these
techniques have used for so long,
why not switch it up?
Two of my favorite finesse tech-
niques for catching shallow fish
are the drop shot and the wacky
rigged soft bait. Most people think
of the drop shot as a deep-water
technique, but by adjusting the
distance in between your hook
and your weight you can fish this
bait extremely shallow.
For drop shot, I use a 7-foot
medium-action spinning rod
and an Abu Garcia spinning reel
spooled with 8-pound Trilene 100
percent Fluorocarbon line. Fluo-
rocarbon line is important in this
technique because it is less visible
underwater. I like a small octopus
hook or wide-gap hook tied to the
line with a Palomar knot. Leave
about 8-10 inches of line below
your hook and attach a -ounce
drop shot weight.
A Green Pumpkin Berkley
Gulp! Sinking Minnow and a
Berkley PowerBait Hand Pour Fi-


nesse Worm are two great drop
shot baits. Cast the baits near ar-
eas likely to hold bass in ambush
(around structure, primary depth
changes) and shake the rod tip.
By shaking the rod tip, you keep
the bait in the strike zone but are
moving it just enough to make
it look alive. If you don't get bit,
drag the weight a few feet and
start over.
Another effective method for
shallow bass in clear water is a
wacky rigged soft bait like a Berk-
ley PowerBait Fat Dover Crawler.
The wacky system allows you to
keep the bait in the strike zone
longer and it creates a lot more
action with the bait. If you rig a
bait straight and you twitch it
once, it is going to easily move 2-
3 feet away from any fish within
the strike zone. With the wacky
system, it creates a lot more resis-
tance in the water. It pushes the
water more and makes the worm
kick, giving you a lot more move-
ment out of it. That extra move-
ment out of a little worm creates
a lot of strikes.


For me, my wacky rigging
equipment consists of a 7-foot
spinning rod with 8- or 10-pound
Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon line.
As far as hooks go, I use a wacky .
rig hook: a short-shank, wide-
gap hook with round bends. Just
stick the hook point through the
eggs sack (or thickest portion) of
the bait and weight the bait with
tungsten nail weights, but you
could even use an actual finish
nail if you have trouble finding
nail weights.
This time of year is a great time
to go after bass. There is a lot less
boat traffic and the bass are large-
ly congregating wherever there is
an easy meal. Try a little finesse
the next time you go chasing fish
into the backs of coves and see
how slowing down and downsiz-
ing your tackle can result in more
strikes and bigger fish.

Collaborative efforts target Florida gangs


TALLAHASSEE Surrounded
by state and local leaders, Attorney
General Bill McCollum recently
announced a collaborative effort
initiated by his agency to develop
a Statewide Gang Reduction Strat-
egy. According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency, Florida
experienced more growth in gang
activity over a 25 year period than
any other state in the nation.
These statistics underscore the
importance for the cooperative
strategy.
"Today gang activity is found in
every county in our state. My goal
in bringing together, this Executive
Group is to combine many great
resources of talent and exper-
tise and to develop a thoughtful
and deliberative Statewide Gang
Reduction Strategy," said Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum. "The
long-range plan of the group will
be a comprehensive outline that
will include efforts to educate our
youth and to dramatically reduce
gang membership and activities
throughout Florida."
The Executive Group was cre-
ated to examine the significant
and growing threat criminal gangs
pose to the safety of the citizens
of Florida. These gangs traffic ille-
gal drugs throughout Florida's

choice of locations and wanted to

an increasing number of vio-
lent crimes with firearms; regu-
larly commit acts of violence that
threaten public safety; and com-
mit a large number of personal
and property crimes. Gangs and
gang-related activities are on the
rise in Florida and the members of
the Executive Group all recognize
that if not stopped or reversed, this
growing activity will translate into
a much larger threat to Florida
in the years to come. State lead-
ers have acknowledged the threat
and expressed their commitment
to take concerted action to ensure
the safety of Florida's citizens.
The statewide gang reduction
strategy will take a two-pronged
approach -- a law enforcement
effort and an educational effort
focused on prevention and inter-
vention -- to address the critical
issues concerning gang member-
ship identification, gang recruit-
ment, risk factors for youth, pre-
vention, crime suppression and
post conviction or adjudication
diversion. The long-range plan
will include gang suppression and
deterrence techniques; prosecu-
tion and criminal justice system
enhancements; prevention and
intervention; data and intelligence
sharing; education and "training;

Lake Hicpochee is a small
lake close to the south-southwest
shore of Lake Okeechobee near
Moore Haven. Sometimes it is
called the headwaters of the Ca-
loosahatchee River.
Ms. Ramsey was able to give
more details about SFWMD's
chosen proposed site off S.R. 80
and how Hicpochee figures into
another category.
"Hicpochee is being looked
at for other features," said Agnes
Ramsey. "An alternate storage
would require a larger footprint.


and rehabilitation and reentry
efforts for former gang members.
"Our recently completed sur-
vey asked criminal justice agen-
cies about gangs in Florida and
the results indicate that criminal
street gangs are a clear and pres-
ent threat across the state," said
FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bai-
ley. "FDLE is pleased tp be part of
this collaborative effort to make
our streets safer."
While most gang activity in
Florida appears to be centered in
the cities of Orlando, Miami, Ft.
Lauderdale, Tampa, Palm Beach
and Lakeland, statistics show
that no area remains untouched.
Information from the Depart-
ment of Corrections reveals that
gang members are operating in
every county in the state. Recent-
ly, the state has seen a significant
increase in crimes committed by
gang members in Panhandle cities
including Panama City, Marianna,
Greensboro, Quincy, and Talla-
hassee with growth over the past
three years. As of July 2007, the top
10 counties with gang members
in prison are Miami-Dade, Hills-
borough, Broward, Orange, Pinel-
las, Polk, Palm Beach, Volusia, Lee
and Manatee, in that order.
"Gangs represent a significant
public safety threat both inside


It is being managed by the Trust-
ees of the State of Florida as more
of a public access/wildlife area.
To actually construct a wetland
in there would have to have very
controlled conditions."
Ms. Long continued, to inquire
about the preservation of the
unique habitat in the proposed
acquisition site that is connected
with the Ortona Locks.
"I have concerns for the wet-
land forest contained within the
2,000 acres, and if it will be dis-
turbed," Donna Long said.
"There will probably be some


our prisons and within our com-
munities," said Department of
Corrections Secretary James R.
McDonough. "As the number of
gangs increases, this collabora-
tion is vital as we work to negate
gang activity."
All indications are that the
number of gang members in
Florida continues to grow as well
as the number of crimes com-
mitted by gang members. The
number of felony convictions for
gang members rose from 2,759
in fiscal years 2004-2005 to 4,447
in fiscal years 2006-2007. This
represents a 61 percent increase
in crimes committed by gang
members in Florida over the past
three years. The crimes most fre-
quently committed by gang mem-
ber inmates include homicide,
armed robbery, assault, drug dis-
tribution and weapons violations.
"Gangs are no longer just a big
city problem," said Baker Co.
Sheriff Joey Dobson, President of
the Florida Sheriffs Association.
"Law enforcement agencies in
communities as diverse as Miami
and Marianna have to come up
with creative strategies to address
the growing gang threat in our
neighborhoods, and we applaud
the Attorney General's emphasis
on a statewide approach."

gree," replied Ms. Ramsey.
Also reported by Ms. Ramsey
was that the site will more likely
resemble a marsh, not a pond or
reservoir. Water depth may vary
from one or two feet, maybe up
to six feet in some areas, varying
with the topography of the land.

erning Board will have a meeting

Don't allow your



anger to get to you


When pushed hard enough,
most of us might feel angry, but
then we calm down. The prob-
lem for many people, however,
is that their anger takes over.'
Uncontrolled anger can result
in significant problems in so-
cial, professional and family
relationships, but even milder
bouts of anger, if not recognized
and dealt with, can have serious
implications.
A first step in controlling an-
ger is recognizing the internal
signs that mean you're becom-
ing angry or are already there.
Think about how you felt the
last time you were angry. What
changes took place as you be-
came upset? Ask others how
you changed or acted.
Being able to recognize your
anger signs allows you to take
steps to control that anger. For
example, feeling yourself be-
coming angry may signal that
it's time to distance yourself
from the person or incident trig-
gering your emotions simply by
walking away.
Anger management requires
that you buy yourself time.
Uncontrolled anger happens
quickly, taking over your emo-
tions, blocking rational thought
and causing you to strike out.
Time allows you to calm slight-
ly, to consider why you're angry,
and to think rationally about
what happens next.
That's why counting to ten
when angry actually works.
Even a few seconds can allow
for rational thought, rather than
simply blindly striking back in
anger. Often, an activity to work
off the energy, both physical
and emotional, that your anger
is generating will help. Physical
exercise, like walking, jogging

missioner Russell Echols.
Mr. Echols went on to men-
tion, that many solutions should
be brought to the table because
the PILT program is insufficient;
and that water management,
the state, and everyone involved
should be concerned about the
welfare of the counties in which
water treatment projects are lo-
cated. He also reminded SFWMD
representatives that there are ad-
ditional water issues in Glades
County that need help, such
as the old Moore Haven Canal,
Harney Pond Canal and Pearce
Canal.
Ms. Ramsey asked whether
SFWMD should continue work-
ing with Wendell Taylor, county
manager, to ensure that they are
considering the welfare of Glades

or sports, can be such an out-
let. Listening to music, playing
an instrument, reading or doing
something artistic often helps
calm you down. Your goal is re-
focus that anger energy in more
productive directions.
When you have your anger
under control, it's time to con-
sider rationally what has hap-
pened and why. Most cases in-
volving anger don't require an
angry response. If a person is
looking to pick a fight, not rising
to the bait can be very effective.
If certain situations consistently
make you angry, consider ways
simply to avoid them, or at least
to be better prepared when you
head into them.
Controlling anger requires
recognizing' when. you're be-
coming angry and then redi-
recting personal energy into
more productive behaviors. But
if you find, despite your best ef-
forts, that controlling your anger
seems impossible, seek profes-
sional help before it does real
damage to your life. A counsel-
ing professional can help you
understand what is causing your
anger, and give you techniques
to avoid such reactions.

"By all means," answered
Commissioner Donna Long.
Pete Quasius, of the Collier
County Audubon Society, men-
tioned that the PILT program has
flaws and taps out too soon. He
encouraged the county to make
plans for commercial opportu-
nities along S.R. 80 and to pro-
vide for additional recreational
facilities. These ventures could
become a "Mecca" for growth.
"Iapplaud you for your fore-
sight," said Mr. Quasius.

Brantley attended a regional plan-
ning meeting in Fort Myers with
the mayor of Sanibel, Mick Den-
ham, also present, The fecal con-
tamination of Sanibel waters for
the past month was an issue.
"That problem was highlight-
ed and it was mentioned for the
fact that no water has flowed for
over nine months," said Mr. Jones
of Lake Okeechobee water re-
leases.
The severe drought has had
adverse affects and dramatically
reduced water levels in the big
lake. It has damaged sport fishing
and water recreation businesses.


Salt water has invaded estuaries
and some fresh water wells have
been in danger of salt water intru-
sion. Water restrictions have been
strictly enforced so south Florida
can have drinking water.
Since no rain drenching
storms have arrived to flush out
the big lake area, it is possible
the drought may have exonerated
agriculture in Glades County; at
least for the time being.
"The fecal matter floating
around Sanibel Island, Bowman's
Pass and Blind Pass has nothing
to do with agriculture," Butch
Jones added.
Pete Quasius, Collier County
Audubon Society, is a frequent
visitor and speaker at Glades
County Board of County Commis-


sioner meetings. His diplomatic
approach attempts to unite re-
sponsible stewards of Florida land
whether they are from coastal ar-
eas or inland agricultural areas.
Mr. Quasius was present at the
Oct. 22 meeting.
"Closed beaches, red tide, fish
kills and no flow: there has been
a real clarion call on the coast that
the problems do not come down
the stream entirely. A lot of them
are in our own back yards. We
are seeing movement in clean-
ing up our septic tanks, cleaning
up fertilizer and dealing with our
storm water. It is long overdue,"
said Pete Quasius.
He also mentioned that the
Kississimee River restoration proj-
ect was a fabulous work to see.


There is more water up there, and
eventually it will contain lots of
clean water that can, flow down
and re-hydrate Lake Okeechobee.
With a little luck it will continue
down the Caloosahatchee and
help beaches and the estuary, he
said.
For generations Sanibel Island
beaches have been a favorite
weekend destination for inland
residents. Its white sands, copi-
ous seashells, elegant birds and
dolphins feeding at sunrise are
wonderful sights. It will be a great
day for Floridians when good
health returns to Sanibel, every-
one agreed.

Youth 'problems'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian-Church, Clewiston
Our children and young peo-
ple are growing up in a prob-
lem-oriented society. They hear
more about problems in a week
than we used to hear about in
several months. They are filled
in on all the problems besetting
the society into which they were
born.
At school they have classes
and discussions on problems.
The talk shows on the radio
abound with problems and peo-
ple's ideas of solutions to them.
They can read "Dear Abby" and
find out about people's prob-
lems. Many of them group with
the idea that they aren't wanted,
thatthhey have bee nothing but
trouble to their parents, and that
we already have too many peo-
ple. Wherever they turn (home,
school, business, world) there
are problems.
And, of course, if we have
problems (and surely we will be-
cause everybody else does), we
must have counselors at schools
to handle our problems.
Let me take you back a few
years to the 20's and 30's. Yes,
there were problems in our
world then, too the "crash" of
the Wall Street stock market, the
closing of banks, the Depression,
the drought years, etc. In cities
people walked the streets out
of work and stood in soup-lines
to get a little bit of something to
eat. Farmers lost their farms and
people their homes. Businesses
went under. But you did not
find ulcers among youngsters
over it. You did not find nervous
break-downs among youth.
There was no talking Vtrips" on
dope or letting our hair grow to
protest the mess the adults had
gotten us into. Nor did we need
counselors at school to help us
cope with our problems. Do you
know why? We were allowed to
be children and young people
(to play, to go to school, to enjoy
ourselves), and the school and
the home didn't bother us with
the magnitude of the problems
going on.
Suppose they had worried us


with the economic picture, had
had us discuss the solution to
the Depression. What could we
have done about it? What would
we have done but worry about
it?
Suppose they had told us
back there that we shouldn't
have to walk to school or ride
a horse to school but that we
should be hauled to school.
Suppose we had been told we
shouldn't have to bring a cold
lunch in a lunch bucket or sack
to school but that the school
should be serving us hot lunch-
es. Suppose that we who lived
on farms, or in small towns had
been told that youngsters in city
schools had a lot of advantages
that we didn't have. What could
we have done about it?
Well, if we couldn't have
done anything about these
things and a hundred other such
things, wasn't it wonderful that
we didn't know the problem
existed? We would have but
burdened ourselves with the
problems of the world at an age
we should have been free from
them.
Someone may suggest that
young people today have more
problems. Possibly so, but for
the most part it is, "our" fault
and not primarily theirs. "Our"
divorces have broken many of
their lives. "We" have shoved
"sex" at them at a terribly young
age. "We" have allowed them
to have their own cars at a very
young age (and wrecks and end-
less expenditures of money and
high insurance rates), and these
worries we never knew years
ago. No wonder they want to
get married younger, get away
from home when it was not
so true years ago, want to vote
at a younger age, etc., etc. No
wonder they want to "march"
and "protest" and want to tell
the government how it ought
to handle everything. No won-
der we have so many youthful
criminals when criminals used
to be a few men somewhere in
their 40's.
But have we made them bet-
ter because of all the above?

for life and living. Take the uten-
sils we use as we
partake of our
daily nourish-
ments. A group
of us were sitting
around a table
after lunch dis-
cussing the mat-
ters of the world
when the con- John
versation took Hicks
a much deeper
direction. We started discussing
forks, knives, and spoons. If you
were asked, would you classify
yourself as? Would you say you


were a fork, a knife, or a spoon?
I remember someone at school
reaching to snatch something off
of the food tray of my brother. He
stabbed their hand with his fork.
Ouch! When fork people are in-
volved, there is usually snatching
and stabbing involved.
We all probably have had some
experience with fork people. Fork
people tend to wdrry about what
is on their own plates. These are
the people who have a "stab it
and grab it" attitude. They are the
ones who never seem to have
enough on their own plate to sat-
isfy themselves and tend to reach
out and stab up anything they can
sink their tines into, many times
without asking.
And then there are the knife
people. No matter what is placed
before knife people, it is never


quite right. They try to figure out
how they can carve it up into a
new shape that suites them or
makes them more comfortable.
The sharp blade of the knife goes
to work, slicing offanything they
find offensive or questionable.
Knife people often tend to use
cutting remarks and often times
cut other people down.
If I had a choice, I'd be a
spoon. Spoons are distinctly dif-
ferent, because instead of taking
or cutting, spoons are designed
to serve. Because their shape is
less specialized, spoons are more
adaptable. You can eat steak,
spaghetti, or soup if you have a
spoon. If necessary, spoons can
even do some cutting.
I have noticed that a silver-
ware service for four includes
four knives, four dinner forks,


four salad forks, but eight spoons.
That's because the utensil manu-
factures know that spoons get
used for more things and in more
ways than do knives and forks.
A spoon offers sustenance
to others. Spoons exist for one
purpose only: to serve and save.
Spoon people are adaptable.
They can operate in a variety of
venues. Whether it's hot soup
or freezing ice cream, they can
scoop it up. Spoon people serve
others, but they are also good at
stirring things up when neces-
sary. Spoons are a great image of
a Christian lifestyle, a ministry in
motion.
Spoons have only one pur-
pose: They, are designed to serve.
In a worldcof knives and forks --
be a spoon.


All Saint's Day and the people under God


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Thursday, Nov. 1, is traditional-
ly All Saint's Day. Our spiritual an-
cestors remembered those who
were the heroes of the faith and
were grateful for the examples
They gave us. When there was
some known time of their birth
or death, the day was commemo-
rated on their yearly calendars
and special intentions were given
for those who were models for us
all. As time went on, many people
were added to the calendar. As
the end of the year approached;
%a day was set aside to remember
all of God's saints All Saint's Day.
Some came from the pages of
the Bible, others were celebrated
for the things they did after the
Biblical era. The reason they're
worth remembering is that they
gave their lives for others, stood
up against injustice, helped the
needy, did what they were called
to do.
I think they're worth remem-
bering and each time their day
comes up on the calendar, they're
included in our worship services.
A part of our problems today is
that we seem to have lost a sense

There are those special ones

It is good to remember them and
still look to what they did as ex-

als on which we are founded;
those saints looked to God and
He was the ultimate source of
their inspiration and guidance.
There is something curious about
those who would limit God as
our inspiration still; and who
might wish to remove the words
"under God" from our Pledge of
Allegiance. I wonder just whose
guidance we might be under if it's
not, "under God." Who might be
a better example, a better model?
Should we say, "one nation un-
der Bush," or "one nation under
Congress," or "one nation under
the Supreme Court," or just who
or what? Should we change who
we are "under" every four years;
that would be a bit inconsistent
and seem to deny any ultimate
authority or values. I don't think
it is better that we're under "no-
body" but can't come up with a
better alternative than to be "un-
der God."
We still need someone to serve
as our examples, our guides, our
models; and every now and again
when I hear those in high places
mention prayers or looking to
God, I think we did a good thing
when we added those words to
our Pledge.

recycling program
First Christian Church, 210 N.

Building Fund. They are collecting
empty laser and inkjet cartridges
and used cell phones from the
community and shipping the
waste products to a service pro-
vider in exchange for cash. In ad-
dition to the needed funding the
church and its supporters are help-
ing to protect the environment by
keeping toxic inks, toner, etc, out
of our landfills. If you have items
for recycling you may call the par-
sonage (863) 983-1804 for pick up
or you may bring the items to the
church during service hours or to
the parsonage at 730 E. Concordia
Ave. at other times. Jackie Miller is

country as our heroes who-gave
us examples and models; and
who counted on their religious
values to guide them through.
They were "under God" if we read
of their lives and beliefs. Likewise
Churches remember those who
were their spiritual "forefathers"
and who were definitely "under
God" in their generations. I've
heard of those who want to re-
move ".under God" from our
Pledge but I haven't heard of a
good substitute to replace Him.
In fact, I don't think any answer
will come quickly, if at all.
In the meantime, I'd suggest
leaving well enough alone. We
remember our great Presidents,
we remember our Church Saints;
those who have done worthy
things, who have looked to God,
and who are our heroes and ex-
amples still. We remember God
as well; He was the inspiration
for all of those others who lived
"under God."
It is fitting for us to thank Him
and remember His special people
as we think about our allegiance.
All Saint's Day-Nov. 1, remember-
ing the people under God; Our
nation valiant leaders under
God, too.

Clewiston Tigers' comeback clinches its district title


By Jeff Barwick
Special to Clewiston News
It was a comeback win that
Tiger fans could ever remember
for comparison purposes. Playing
dismally throughout the first half,
Clewiston had spotted the Inlet
Grove Hurricanes to a 20-0 lead
and appeared to be just going
through the motions and wait-
ing to catch the bus home. The
game began at 4 p.m. due to no
field lights at Inlet Grove and the
Tiger faithful could recall that the
Tigers had always had problems
with afternoon games.
But, something happened
during intermission and the Ti-
gers who showed up to finish
the game were markedly differ-
ent than those that played the
first half. The winning drive was
set up by P.J. Runkles recovery
of Will Davis' onside kick, after
point man Adam Trevino cleared
out the Inlet Grove player trying
to field the short kickoff. Tailback
Colin Ricketts then blew through
the line and raced 41 yards to give
the Tigers a first and goal at the
7. The Tigers finally took the lead
with 2:35 remaining in the game
when senior fullback Alex Rubio
pounded in from a yard out. The
win moved the Tigers to 3-0 in the
district and gave them their third
straight district championship.
For a game that ended so
beautifully, it started very ugly.
The Hurricanes scored on their
first two possessions and Clewis-
ton seemed unable to slow them
down. Put, some quick defensive
adjustments stopped the bleeding
and Inlet Grove didn't score again
until late in the half. Nevertheless,
neither the Tigers nor their fans
were too optimistic as the teams
went in for halftime.
The Tiger defensive front be-
gan immediately putting strong
pass rushing pressure on Hur-
ricane quarterback Terry Brad-
den, one of the top-rated pass-
ers in the area. He was thrown
for huge sack losses-three by
Delvin Hughes, one by Deangelo
Huston and another by Antonio
Williams. The defensive play kept
the Tiger offense on the field and
the strategy paid off. Clewiston
put together a 13 play drive that
ate almost seven minutes from
the clock. The rushing yards were
hard earned with Rubio getting
the longest gain with an 11 yard
burst. Key to the drive was two
timely fourth down pass comple-
tions by quarterback Isandro
Marquez. The first was a 14 yard
catch by wideout Paul Peterson
that moved the ball to the Hur-
ricane's 27. Then on fourth and
goal from the 13, Marquez faded
back, slipped to his left to avoid
rushers and fired a strike into the
corner of the end zone where an
outstretched P. J. Runkles caught
the ball.
The final period could not
have been executed much better
by the Tigers. Clewiston scored
early in the period after a short
Hurricane punt had given them
the ball at the Inlet Grove 25.
Marquez hit Peterser with a 16-
yard strike, Rubio hit the line for


"We came back in the
second half a different
team. Our offensive line
started blocking and
opening holes for us.
It feels great to win the
district, especially in a
comeback win."
Colin Ricketts
6 and then Colin Ricketts carried
twice to get the final yards for the
touchdown. Will Davis' conver-
sion brought the Tigers to a 20-14
deficit.
The Hurricanes then mustered
their only drive of the second
half, getting to the Tiger 5 before
having to settle for a 24 yard field
goal. The Tigers came roaring
right back. Ricketts gained all the
yards on a six play, 80-yard drive
with a 62-yard dash being the big-
gest chunk. He got the score on a
five-yard plunge. The Tigers then
tried a trick play from placekick
formation but the snap was mis-
handled and the play stopped.
Clewiston then pulled off
the textbook onside kick with
Runkles recovering at the Hur-
ricane 48. From there, Ricketts
and Rubio did the running duty to
win the game for the Tigers. The
Hurricanes had one last stab at a
comeback but it ended quickly
with cornerback Peterson inter-
cepting a Bradden pass and the
Tigers ran out the clock.
Clewiston held Inlet Grove to
a negative 18 yards rushing in the
second half and thwarted their
potent passing game. Rubio,
from his linebacker position, led
the effort with 10 tackles. Senior
defensive end Delvin Hughes had
8 tackles and three quarterback
sacks and a running sack for loss-
es totaling 44 yards.
Ricketts, exhausted after the
game from having gone both
ways all night, said, "We came
back in the second half a different
team. Our offensive line started
blocking and opening holes for
us. It feels great to win the district,
especially in a comeback win."
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, "Running the ball is our
game and we came out after the
break and did just that. Our staff
is so proud of the effort these kids
made tonight, playing with a lot
of heart and coming back as they
did." After an emotional pause, he
added, "Ricketts and Rubio were
our team leaders. Even being be-
hind 20-0, they wouldn't quit and
kept their teammates going."
After a 0-5 start to their sea-
son against a tough non-district
schedule, the victory was the Ti-
gers third straight district win and
assures them home field advan-
tage in the first round. While the
Tigers will host St. Andrews this
Friday in their final district game,
they would still be champions
no matter the outcome based on
having already beaten Inlet Grove.
The Hurricanes dropped to 3-1 in
the district and 6-2 overall but se-
cured the district runner-up spot
for postseason play.

Setting goals for lifestyle changes


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry/Glades Health Dept.
We all set goals for things we want
to accomplish, but how often do we
meet our goals when they are about
eating better and being more physi-
cally active? When you are planning
for your goal, think about four things:
1. How long will you try to reach this
goal? Keep it short. 2. Is it easy to do
in your regular daily life? Keep it re-
alistic.
3. Is it limited in scope? Be specif-
ic. 4. How often will you do it?
Keep yourgoals realistic. Don't try
to do too much too quickly. Here are
three examples of realistic goals.
Eating: For the next month (how
long), four days each week (how
often) I will eat two pieces of fruit a
day -- one at breakfast and one as an
afternoon snack. (realistic and spe-
cific).
Eating: The next five times (how
long) I go to a fast food restaurant
(how often), I will order a small
French fries and a single hamburger,
rather than a large French fries and


double hamburger (realistic and spe-
cific).
Physically active: For the next
month (how long), four days each
week (how often) I will take a 15
minute walk after lunch (realistic and
specific).
Pay attention to the idea that the
eating goals are not "I will eat more
fruit" or "I will eat healthier." The
activity goal is not "I'll walk more."
These goals aren't specific like the
examples above and are very hard to
measure much less to accomplish.
Start with 1 to 3 goals at a time.
Write them down. Put them in a
place where you will see them often
-- on the refrigerator, your bathroom
or bedroom mirror, or in your purse
or wallet.
The next question will be did you
succeed? How did you do at mak-
ing the change? Once the time you
set is over, look at the. goals you set.
Ask yourself these questions: Did you
succeed? Did you set your sights too
high? Did something happen in your
life to keep you from being success-


ful? If you were successful, give your-
self a big pat on the back or maybe a
reward like a trip to the, movies.
Wait, you are not done! Making
a change for two weeks or a month
does not mean that it will stick for life.
It's so easy to slip back to old ways.
Practice the new habits faithfully. It
will take months before they become
your way of life. If you weren't suc-
cessful, try again. Revise your goals
or choose easier ones. Make sure
they contain the four parts of setting
a goal that's within reach. Make sure
you want to make changes in this
area and that you are ready, willing
and able to meet your goals. What
next? Start the lifestyle change cycle
again. Choose some new goals to
work on. Slowly, goal by goal, over
time you'll be eating healthier and
being more active and you'll be at
a healthier weight. You'll also be on
your road to preventing or delaying
type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, heart
disease and some types of cancer
,just to name a few more benefits of a
healthy lifestyle.


Pumpkins are loaded with nutrition


Bright orange pumpkins may be
one of the symbols of Halloween,
but pumpkins are much more than
a holiday decoration. Pumpkins are
high in beta-carotene, shown by their
bright orange flesh.

considered a custard pie made with
eggs and milk it should be kept hot
or cold. Don't leave the pie out on the
table or the counter. After it cools,
keep it in the refrigerator.

Pumpkin Cremes Brulees
Crimes Brules (krehm broo-
LAY) is rich French cream and vanilla
flavored custard. The literal transla-
tion is "burnt cream," which refers

to the scalded cream or milk in the
recipe. Traditionally the entire sur-
face is sprinkled with granulated
sugar just before serving. The custard
is then placed under heat so that the
sugar quickly caramelizes and be-
comes brittle. Although this step can
be omitted, the brittle sugar creates
a delicious flavor and texture con-
trast to the smooth, creamy custard
beneath. This recipe is the American
version of Cremes Br^lees, which
uses pumpkin as the flavor base. It is
very easy to make. Enjoy.
3 cups milk
1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, canned,
frozen or freshly prepared
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
5 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoon unsalted butter or
margarine, melted
1 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup sugar, divided
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a small saucepan, heat milk
to just below boiling, bubbles will
form all over the surface (scalded
milk is heated to 180 to 1850F).
3. In a medium bowl, lightly beat
eggs with a wire whisk. Add pump-
kin, brown sugar, butter, spice, and
vanilla. Mix until well blended.
4. Gradually whisk in hot milk.
Mix well until all ingredients are com-
bined.
5. Evenly divide pumpkin mixture
among 12 six-ounce custard cups.
Place cups in two 9x13 inch baking
pans. Place pans on oven rack and
add hot tap water to the pans until the
water is halfway up sides of cups.
6. Bake 35-40 minutes. Check after
35 minutes. Custard centers should
be slightly wobbly. Remove custard
from oven and allow to cool in wa-
ter bath. Cover with plastic wrap and
refrigerate.
7. Just before serving, preheat
oven broiler. Sprinkle 2 teaspoons
sugar on each custard. Arrange on
a baking sheet and place under hot
broiler. Broil until sugar melts and
bubbles. Watch closely to prevent
burning. Sugar should be lightly
brown and caramelized. Or hold a
propane kitchen torch (also called
a salamander) about 2-inches from
custard tops to caramelize sugar.
Serve at once. Refrigerate leftovers
for up to 5 days.
