.Few job s, housing- short age


School board,
city and county
look for solutions
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY On Oct.
29 the Glades County School
Board, Glades County Board
of County Commissioners and
the City of Moore Haven met to
discuss mutual concerns, and to
update one another on continu-
ing issues.
-According to local officials,
the school district, sheriff's of-


fice and community businesses
have trouble attracting new em-
ployees and new residents due
to shortage of reasonably priced
housing and low wages.
Many young professionals
opt to work in the larger counties
.where wage scales are higher.
More houses and apartments are
available in other areas. Since
business development in Glades
County is slow,, there are few
new jobs to attract workers. This
means few people are moving to
Glades County.
Mike Pressley, school board
chairman, reported that it is
getting very difficult to fund the
school district, especially the


high school; however, that is not
a new problem, according to Mr.
Pressley. Federal programs fund
schools according to the number
enrolled.
More students mean more
money, but families with school
age children are not moving to
this area
Wayne Aldrich, school su-
perintendent, commented that
the West Glades School is near
capacity while Moore Haven
Schools can handle another 200
to 300 students.
According to school officials,
a new teacher's starting pay is

health issues


Prevention,
detection, nurse
practitioners
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Pat
Dobbins is the nursing direc-
tor for Glades County Health
Department and she is thankful
for advanced registered nurse
practitioners (ARNP).
They are sometimes simply
called nurse practitioners, and


in the United States their work
has been vital to rural residents
for 35 years. At the Glades
County Health Department
they are needed for primary
care services.
According to Ms. Dobbins,
there has been a shortage of
nurses in the public and private
sector for a long time. This in-
cludes nurses that specialize in
pediatrics, geriatrics, women's
health, family medicine and
psychiatry. She also empha-

School bus stops,

Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY On
Nov. 1, the Glades County Com-
munity Traffic Safety Team
(CTST) met in front of the
Moore Haven Junior-Senior


High School.
They and other local officials
want to remedy the ongoing
problem of school students
ignoring the pedestrian cross-
walk on Sixth Street in Moore
Haven.
This mainly involves teens
rather than elementary school
children. At the end of a school
day, some student pedestrians

Passive recreation


park plan discussed


Second workshop
held in LaBelle

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES/HENDRY The
second workshop held to gath-
er facts and hear viewpoints
on the proposed regional park
proposed for Glades County
was held Nov. 1 at the LaBelle
Civic Center.
The 176-acre property is on
the north side of the river, east
of S.R. 29 before its crossing of
Caloosahatchee River. A rem-
nant of an old oxbow borders
the western edge of the one-
mile riverfront.
The city of LaBelle has
leased the land from South
Florida Water Management


District since 1991. According
to officials, the city will pay a
yearly fee of $1.
If the city does not prepare
a plan for a regional park by
April 2008 the lease will be
rescinded, according to Craig
Bartoshuk.
Mr. Bartoshuk is one of the
park plan organizers who have
land resource management
experience. Today it is rare
that riverfront property on the
Caloosahatchee is available for
the public to enjoy.
The park plan will be based
on passive recreation which
means visitors can observe
wildlife, walk on trails and ca-
noe up to the river bank. Recre-
ational uses would be minimal
due to preservation of native

parcel with one mile of frontage on the Caloosahatchee River.

U.S. Army Corps reviews dike safety


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
Yet another report was recent-
ly released on the condition of the
Herbert Hoover Dike. On Friday,
Nov. 2 the U. S. Army Corps of En-
Sgineers (COE) held a telephone
press conference to announce
the release of the Herbert Hoover
Dike Consensus Report. This
newest report came on the heels
of two 2006 reports, one commis-
sioned by the South Florida Water
Management District and one by
COE. This latest report, for the
most part, endorsed the findings
of those previous studies.
"Public safety is our number
one priority," said Eric Halpin, P.E.,
Special assistant for dam and levee
safety for COE in Washington, as
he opened the press conference.
He said that a panel of six experts
in industry, government and aca-

Historic

Preservation

Grants holds

workshop
TALLAHASSEE Secretary of
State Kurt S. Browning announced
recently that the Division of His-
torical Resources would hold
a Historic Preservation Grants
Workshop November 15 from 9
Sa.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Room 307
of the R. A. Gray Building at 500
South Bronough Street in down-
town Tallahassee. This workshop
will offer grant writing and grant
management training related to
the Division's Historic Preserva-
tion Grants. The workshop is free
and open to all interested parties.
Due to space limitations, atten-
dance is limited to 40. Based on
the response to this workshop,
another may be offered.
The workshop's morning ses-
sion from 9 a.m. to noon will
concentrate on types of grants
offered by the Division, appli-
cation instructions and tips for
improvement, and an overview
of the grant review and funding
processes. The afternoon session
from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. will con-
centrate on grant management
skills. Topics to be discussed are
grant award documents, project
scheduling, advertising and con-
tracting for goods and services,
grant progress-reporting, dead-
lines, and schedule for disburse-
ment of grant funding. Time will
be reserved at the end of both
sessions for questions and com-
ments. This workshop is offered
in preparation for the Division's
December 17 deadline for sub-
mission of "Small-Matching" His-
toric Preservation grants. Eligible
applicants are Departments or
agencies of the state (including
universities), cities, counties and
other units of local government
and not-for-profit organizations.
To view a workshop agenda,
hotel list and parking map, and
to RSVP for the November 15
workshop, visit the Historic Pres-
ervation Grants Web site at www.
flheritage.com/grants or contact a
member of the Historic Preserva-
tion Grants staff at (850) 245-6333
or toll free at 1-(800) 842-7278.


demics were enlisted to conduct
an independent external review
of the dike. He noted that some
of the panel's recommendations
have already been acted upon.
According to Allen Bud, team
leader on the Herbert Hoover Dike
project for COE's Jacksonville Dis-
trict, this report is a "good news
story" that contained no surprises
and supported conclusions of the
two previous reports.
Dr. Donald Bruce, one of the
panel members, said the panel
was very impressed with current
surveillance and monitoring of
the dike being done by COE.
Mr. Bud said COE was look-
ing at an emergency spillway to
release large amounts of excess
water from the lake. A spillway
is only concerned with releasing
water for flood control purposes
as opposed to a flow way pro-


posed by some environmentalists.
A flow way would be concerned
with ecology. Part of the problem
with controlling the lake level is
that six times as much water can
enter the lake as can be currently
be released.
Throughout the report, the ele-
vaton of 17 feet was mentioned as
the magic number above which
the lake should not be allowed
to rise until dike rehabilitation is
complete. The panel judged an
elevation of 11.6 feet would cause
no problems to the dike.
Since design philosophies
have evolved over the years the
panel recommended that specific
-remedial concepts be adapted to
specific sections of the dike.
The corps had divided the
levee into numbered segments
called reaches. However, the
numbers are not consecutive.


The panel agreed with earlier
studies that stated that segments
of Reaches 1, 2 3, and 7 are in
the "urgent and compelling" cat-
egory requiring immediate atten-
tion. These reaches are along the
southern and eastern side of the
lake. Okeechobee is in Reach 5.
The panel recommended that
COE perform detailed risk analy-
sis of each vulnerable stretch of
the dike as soon as possible.
The panel concurred with the
general rehabilitation approach
of filling in the toe ditch and quar-
ries and constructing cutoffs and
seepage berms.
The extent and timing of reha-
bilitation efforts will depend on
how much funding is provided by
Congress.

On the Riverwatch
The Caloosahatchee River
Citizens Association/Riverwatch,
a river advocacy group formed in
1995, has been dedicated to the
protection of the River and its
watershed, through education
and promotion of the responsi-
ble use of the river for the enjoy-
mentof all people.
In recentyears, there has been
a "disconnect" between nature
and people, particularly children,
due to their lack of interest in the
outdoors. People will never care
for Nature if they are not actively
engaged in the outdoors.
The proposed LaBelle Ca-
loosahatchee River Community
Park, with its 176 acres, provides
an ideal place for passive, na-
ture-based activities for residents
in Hendry and Glades counties.
The development of such a
park, with its nature trails, fish-
ing pier, butterfly gardens, kayak
beach and picnic areas, provides
ample opportunities for family
fun and healthy outdoor activi-
ties for all ages.
CRCA also advocates the


creation of an oxbow on the
waterfront, which would create
productive aquatic habitat with
passive use of the waterfront.
We envision not only maintain-
ing, but also restoring the histor-
ic riparian habitats which are ir-
replaceable on the vast majority
of the developed riverbank. This
oxbow will provide rare learning
tools for students in elementary
through high school.
CRCA encourages the devel-
opment and implementation of
a park plan created in close co-
ordination with adjacent proper-
ty owners and residents, for the
benefit all of the area residents,
young and old alike.
It is the hope that by provid-
ing opportunities for safe and
healthy outdoor experiences
on the banks of the historic Ca-
loosahatchee, our young people
will develop a love for the out-
doors and the River and will
continue that appreciation, re-
spect and love for Nature in their
adult years.
Marti Daltry, President
CRCA/Riverwatch

United Way launches annual campaign


FORT MYERS More than
700 volunteers and community
leaders gathered at the Harbor-
side Event Center to celebrate the
United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades 50th Anniversary Cam-
paign Kick-Off. Campaign Chair,
and President, CEO and Chair-
man of the Board of Chico's, FAS,
Scott Edmonds urged the crowd
to support the United Way and
said, "By supporting the United
Way, in helping our neighbors
receive the assistance they need,
together, we can make a differ-
ence in our community."
The program opened with a
rousing performance from Buddy
Holly and the Crickets. Broadway
Palm Dinner Theatre provided
the performance to coincide with
this year's theme "Giving Rocks!"
The goal for this year's cam-
paign is $7.28 million. Thanks to
the generosity of our community,
the campaign is off to an armaz-
ing start.
Edmonds announced that
the 80 pacesetter companies -
those who run their campaigns
early to demonstrate United Way
support and to encourage others


- along with early leadership
gifts, have already raised a total of
$4,083,358. This represents 56%
of the goal and Pacesetter compa-
nies set the pace with a huge 12%
increase in giving over last year.
Pacesetter Chair, Gino Littlestone
of Oswald Trippe & Company
was overjoyed with the results.
"The fact that these companies
had a double digit increase over
last year is amazing. This really
shows that Giving does Rock in
our community," said Littlestone.
Publix had a record breaking
year and raised the most of any of
the pacesetter companies again
with $1,141,026. Publix has been
a long and generous supporter of
the United Way, and has repeat-
edly set new records over the past
eight years.
Six other companies also
exceeded the $100,000 mark:
Chico's with $300,000; Oswald
Trippe and Company Inc. with
$265,000; Lee Memorial Health
System with $141,720; The
News-Press with $118,151; Lee
County Government employees
with $116,392 and LCEC with
$105,000. The top 15 Pacesetter


companies are listed below and

All money raised in the United
Way campaign stays in the lo-
cal community to help support
the local human service net-


work of partner agencies. United
Way agencies like Alvin A Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center,
Children's Advocacy Center, Big
Brothers Big Sisters, and LARC
serve a diverse range of needs in
our community such as nurtur-
ing children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly
and disabled live independently,
and empowering communities
by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds
for human service organizations
in our community, the United
Way promotes partnerships and
collaborations among agencies,
helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions
that continue to improve lives.
This year is the organization's
50th anniversary. The United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades has
been "the way the community
cares" since it was established
in 1957. For more information
please call United Way of Lee,
Hendry and Glades Counties at
(239) 433-2000 or visit www.unit-
edwaylee.org.

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.
'Rci-tlnoplliv' i; the medical-term for damage to the tiny blood +-
v, : '.I .1.l|.aI, .I I that nourish the refina, the tissue at the backd'fo
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.

MHES hosts FCAT Fun Day
Moore Haven Elementary School hosted a Fun Day to celebrate their hard work and to
honor students who last year, flew through their FCAT challenge.


GLADES COUNTY The
Glades County Public Library will
host two upcoming lectures on
Florida History. Both lectures are
made possible by a grant from
the Florida Humanities Council.
A Nov. 17, lecture is entitled
"Before the Exodus: The Hispanic
Presence in Florida Before Cas-
tro". The program will explore
the prominent role played by His-
panics in the development of the
state, from the 1500's to the pres-
ent. From the panhandle south,
Hispanics have made Florida their
home and have shaped its history.
This lecture will highlight a few of
these prominent individuals and
experiences, demonstrating the
rich and diverse history of Lati-
nos, Latinas, and other Spanish
speakers in the region.
On Nov. 24, the lecture is en-
titled "When Cattle Was King:
Ranching at the Turn of the Cen-
tury". This lecture will explore the
importance of cattle and ranchers
to the history of Florida. From
statehood in 1845 to the present,
ranchers have been a significant
participant in the state's agricul-
tural economy. Nowhere was


this truer than in the Florida inte-
rior. Although largely overlooked,
this community provided one of
the few ways in which families
of diverse backgrounds (white,
Hispanics, African Americans,
and Native American) united in
a single enterprise. For decades,
the export of cows proved to be
a one of the state's most valuable
asset.
Both 50 minute lectures are on
Saturday at 2 p.m. The lectures
will be followed by a question and
answer period and an opportunity
for discussion. Refreshments will
be served. The programs are free
and open to the public.
The featured speaker is Dr. An-
drew Frank of the History Depart-
ment at Florida State University.
Dr. Frank studied at Brandeis Uni-
versity and the University of Flor-
ida. He is the author of "Creeks
and Southerners: Biculturalism
on the Early American Frontier"
and the recipient of numerous
grants and fellowships.
The lectures are part of a larger
project sponsored by the Florida
Humanities Council and initiated
by the Core Ensemble, a music


theatre company, which is creat-
ing a performance piece based
on oral histories and stories of
Glades County.
The Florida Humanities Coun-
cil is an independent, non-profit
organization and is the state af-
filiate of the National Endowment
for the Humanities. Each year,
FHC funds hundreds of public
programs throughout the state
that explore Florida's history,
folklore, environment, literature,
music and art.
For more information about
the lectures, call the library at
(863) 946-0744, Project Director
Margot Emery at (561) 582-0603
or email margot@core-ensem-
ble.cc. The Glades County Public
Library is located at 201 Riverside
Drive in Moore Haven. For more
information about the Florida
Humanities Council, contact Su-
san Lockwood, Grants Director
at (727) 873-2011 or email slock-
wood@flahum.org.
Additional support for the proj-
ect was provided by the Florida
Department of State, Division of
Cultural Affairs and The National
Endowment for the Arts.

Stripe: new wings for the home


A giant slide was just one of the activities available for students at Moore Haven Elementa-
ry School recently as they celebrated and honored the hard-working students who passed
their FCAT tests or those who made significant improvements since last year.


Moore Haven Elementary School students lined up for their turn to get down under the
limbo pole during a recent FCAT Fun Day celebration to honor student success during
FCAT testing.

By Dan'Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension Service
At the annual Florida Master
Gardener Conference last week,
volunteers were updated and in-
spired with current information
about Florida Friendly landscape
practices. Those attending this
year in Gainesville were die-hard
plant lovers. To feed this need,
the planning committee made
sure that everybody came home
with some new ornamentals for
their Florida Yard.
Today's column will tempt
you with some of the new ideas
that we picked up. They will be
shared in future columns and
training herd on the Lake. But to-
day I will share what I've found
out about one of the "green
goodies" that we brought back
with use a curious houseplant
that looks like it is covered with
butterflies.
Conference Highlights
The planning committee
wanted volunteers to practice
identifying common Florida
aquatic plants, so I set up a con-
test for the volunteers. I also was
part of a panel that discussed the
current status of the Florida Yards
& Neighborhood programs. FYN
Program Assistant Angela Sach-
son also attended the Conference
along with one of our newest
Master Gardeners, Pat Johnson.
In between, our Okeechobee
team attended presentations
by Extension specialists, toured
UF turf and landscape research
plots, celebrated Master Garden-
er volunteer accomplishments,
dug deep into our pockets dur-
ing an auction to raise volunteer
training funds, and were inspired
by a captivating speech, Attention
Deficit Gardening, by Dr. Robert
Lyons, Director of University of
Delaware's training programs at
Longwood Gardens.
The Aquatic Plant challenge
was just that: a challenge! There
were 25 plants found in Florida
wetlands, ponds and canals, and
an answer sheet was given to
the volunteers. They had to use
aquatic plant identification guides
to match names with plants You
can try it yourself on-line by going
to our Master Gardener website,

Taking flight from
obscurity
Botanists are still exploring the
globe, identifying and reporting
on all kinds of vegetation from
all over. According to what I have

been able to uncover, a botanist
exploring the Far East first no-
ticed a lowly vining herb growing
in tropical highlands of tropical


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
Asia and Australia. Around 1961,
characteristics for a "new" plant
were recorded, and its botanical
name was established as Christia
obcordata.
A member of the bean family,
this sprawling tropical perennial
grows up and falls over, reaching
heights of 2-4 feet. It has a com-
pound leaf, which means that it
has several flat leaf blades that
make up one leaf. In this case,
the leaf shape is like a green bean
plant, with three leaflets, but they.
are wider than long. The middle
leaflet is about twice as big as the
side leaflets.
Christia has thin stems that,
like the leaves, are slightly hairy.
Flower clusters grow from shoots
that pop out from the stems just
above the leaf stalk. They pro-'
duce clusters of small near white-
colored flowers in the late sum-
mer or fall. If pollinated, a small
twisted seed pod is produced.
Some plant scientists have stud-
ied this plant and determined that
like many other legumes, it can
take nitrogen form air and make
it into fertilizer.
Horticilturalists are a different
breed they look at plants and
try to use their characteristics for
food or as ornamentals. One hor-
ticulturalist found a larger leaved
specimen with lime green leaves,
and the veins turned a burgundy
red color. Burl Mostul of Rare
Plant Research in Portland saw
Christia in a Thailand market-
place. He had it legally imported
and used tissue culture to bring it
to domestic markets a new cul-
tivar was born.
The color and leaf shape
makes Christia looks a lot like a
striped butterfly. This is the plant
that was given to our Master Gar-
deners, courtesy of Costa Color of


Miami. Common names for this
plant include: Butterfly Plant, But-
terfly Leaf, Iron Butterfly, Butter-
fly Stripe, or Swallowtail. It does
NOT attract butterflies ii just.
looks like it.
A second species of this plant
looks and behaves much like
Stripe: Christia vespertilionis is
known as Red Butterfly Wing, or
Mariposa, Spanish for "butterfly".
Differences are that it is less cold
tolerant, the leaf color is a light
pinkish green, and the stripes are
much less pronounced.
Growing stripe
Because this plant is new to
growers, we are still unsure what
conditions are best for Stripe to
thrive. Most references say to use
a shady location and lots of wa-
ter. Reports are that leaves will
burn in direct sun. Soils should
be well drained, but avoid bother
overwatering and drying out.
There is one report that it
grows quite well when given full
sun for 7 hours a day and bright
indirect light the rest of the day.
Another observation is that be-
cause of its tropical origins, it will
go dormant in winter.
The thin stems will need pinch-
ing to encourage side branches,
especially as the plant starts to
pick up its growth in the spring.
Propagation has been done by
cuttings, but I've not heard that
seed have been successfully used
to grow this plant.
Let me know if you see it
for sale locally, and keep me in-
formed on your success with
this new houseplant. I've placed
more information and photos
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you need additional information

Shortage
Continued From Page 1
in the mid-$30,000 range. The
school district is finding it increas-
ingly difficult to attract new teach-
ers considering the lack of afford-
able houses and rental units.
"You cannot pay a physics or
honors teacher with only five stu-
dents in a class. The only way for
the district to compete is to get


more students," said Mike Press-
ley.
The schools, city and county
find themselves in the same boat,
caught in a cycle of unfortunate
circumstances: a rural commu-
nity with few jobs and/or low
wages, a housing shortage and
difficulty attracting working fami-
lies with school age kids.
Commissioner Butch Jones
commented that he had seen a
new affordable housing develop-


ment in nearby Clewiston called
Orchard Park. The units were
priced for people who receive
teacher, deputy, and EMS salaries.
The homes appeared suitably
built with features like retention
ponds and paved roads.
This attracted attention at the
meeting. A committee formed
to research the planning and
funding behind Clewiston's new
neighborhood.
The committee consists of


Tracy Whirls, economic develop-
ment director; Erica Villafuerte,
SHIP director; John Ahern, Moore
Haven city councilman; Janet
Story, school board member; and
Paul Beck, county commissioner.
The committee members will
contact the groups, or agencies
that created Orchard Park in Clew-
iston and then report back to the
school district, city and county.

sized that not everyone wants to
work in rural counties.
"This is the challenge that we
face. We are concerned about
rural health in general. If you live
in a rural county your health but-
comes are going to be worse. As a
county, state and nation we need
to look at that," said Pat Dobbins.
Luckily for Glades and Hendry
counties there are nurse practitio-
ners like Jennifer Hood and Rosa-
linda Gonzalez who can attend to
women's health and family care.
Nurse practitioners can evalu-
ate, diagnose and help prevent
women's conditions and diseas-
es. The ARNP can do examina-
tions, screenings, pap tests, lab
tests, family planning, prescribe
medicine and educate or counsel
the patient. The nurse practitioner
can also refer a patient to a spe-
cialist.
There are no childbirth facili-
ties in Glades and Hendry coun-
ties, but mid-wife ARNPs and the
Lee OB/GYN Associates are avail-
able once a week in LaBelle and
Clewiston. When it comes time
for a woman to deliver she must

go to the health department's
partners in Lee County. The preg-
nant woman can also choose to
deliver in Pahokee or Belle Glade
with a private obstetrician.
Glades County has gained one
private physician in the last year,
and he is the only one. Dr John


Geake and his wife, Ellen, opened
an office in Moore Haven on Av-
enue J near the public library.
Dr. Geake provides for women's
wellness, breast exams, pap tests,
lab tests, pediatrics and family
medicine.
Pat Dobbins also reports that


Glades County Health Depart-
ment will soon coordinate with
Manatee County Health Depart-
ment to target women age 50 to
64. She mentioned that.this is an
age group that finds itself with
limited or no health insurance
at all. The program will pay for
mammograms and pap tests.
When the plan for this program
has been finalized a woman in
this age group may fill out forms
for eligibility.
Anyone can come to the health
department at 956 Highway 27
SW in Moore Haven and fill out
forms for eligibility. The phone
number is (863) 946-0707. Pat
Dobbins invites volunteers to sign
up and give a hand. Once a vol-
unteer signs up their skills can be
matched up to a particular need
in the department.
Dr. John Geake's office is at
Riverside Glades Medical Center,
51 Avenue J. The phone number
is (863) 946-1000.
If patients have transportation
needs they can contact Good
Wheels which is a not for profit
company. Good Wheels has an
inexpensive ride if an application
is filled out first. Call (800) 741-

Part of the restoration would
include removal of dredged spoil
deposited when the natural river

vasive exotic plants will be eradi-
cated to reintroduce native veg-

contains some native species.
During the meeting some resi-
dents who live next to the prop-
erty, asked pertinent questions
about security, liability, mainte-
nance, designation of public ac-
+- cess, impact on wildlife and a
working timeline.
County issues may involve
rezoning and the relevance to

Authorities agree this is not
safe. Students have been ob-
served actually stepping into
the the middle of the traffic lane
while holding up the palm of their
hands as a signal that the vehicle
should stop.
When a heavy truck has to
brake, its tremendous weight
makes quick stops impossible.
The potential for a death is obvi-
ous to many adults, but some
young people do not believe it.
Local government depart-
ments, the sheriff's office and the
school district have tried numer-
ous suggestions in the past and
have come to the decision that this
may be an enforcement issue.
A city ordinance may be need-
ed in order to save some students
from their own mistakes. The City
of Moore Haven and its city attor-
ney will be consulted before ac-
tion is taken.
Back in their usual meeting
room in the public library, the
"Team," FDOT, GCSO, city and
county officials, health depart-
ment, road department, school
bus transportation, Redlands
Christian Mirgrant Association,
Glades County Child Develop-


ment Center, and Health Plan-
ning Council of Southwest Florida
gathered to focus on the use of
car seats for children and family
involvement. It was felt that con-
tinuing to educate young families.
on safety is a w orri\- while idea.
"Families can go to the Health
Department and get a car seat,"
informed Mary Ann Prouty, who
is with the Hendry/Glades Health
Department.
There, for $10, car seats may
be purchased by parents, guard-
ians and grandparents.
Last month the focus of the
group was school bus stop safe-
ty in the Crescent Acres area of
Muse. Gloria Seay, FDOT, made
sure message signs were placed
near the bus stops. Some drivers
had been passing stopped school
buses, flashing lights and extend-
ed signs not withstanding. The
school resource officers and Muse
community will also be involved.
CTST members received posi-
tive feedback about the use of the
DOT message signs.
"They were excited that some-
one cared enough about their
kids," said Angelica Pena, CTST
chair and Health Department rep-
resentative.
Residents are welcome to at-
tend the CTST meetings at the
public library in Moore Haven, on
the first Thursday of the month at
10 a.m.

Tigers sail past St. Andrews; Sweep their district


By Jeff Barwick ,
CLEWISTON After opening
the season with five straight non-
district losses, the Tigers com-
pleted their sweep of their district
play by defeating Boca Raton
St. Andrews, 28-14. Already de-
clared District 2A-6
Champions and..
assured home (( "(
field advantage e S--
for the first game
of the playoffs,
Clewiston dominated the Scots
early and then muddled through
the later stages of the game. The
Tigers will host Bishop Verot, run-
ner-up in District 2A-5, on Nov. 16,
at Cane Field as the playoffs begin.
The Vikings feature a potent pass-
ing game and will present a tough
challenge for the Tigers.
Junior tailback Darris Hughes
led the Tigers by scoring all four
touchdowns and piling up 213
yards rushing on the night. After a
scoreless opening period, Clewis-
ton racked up three scores in the
second period on runs by Hughes
of 5, 6, and 56 yards. He came
back to get the final Tiger score on
a 32 yard dash in the third period.
Tiger kicker Will Davis converted
all of the extra points.
The first half was nothing but
STigers. Although unable to score
in the opening period, Clewiston
controlled the ball and only al-
lowed the Scots four offensive
snaps and no first downs. The
second period was more to the

Tigers'liking as they scored early
when Hughes carried off tackle
for five yards. After holding the
Scots and forcing a short punt,
the Tigers quickly covered 34
yards. A 22 yard scamper by quar-
terback Isandro Marquez got the
offense to the 17 and Hughes got
the final six yards a few plays later.
Another short punt by the Scots
and an eight yard return by Zack
Waddell gave the Tigers the ball at
the Scots' 47. After a Tiger hold-
ing penalty and two snaps that re-
sulted in only a yard, Hughes took
the ball off the left side, broke
clear and raced wide for a 52 yard
score. The Scots were held to no
first downs and only 12 yards of
total offense in the half.
The second half featured some
liberal substitutions by the Tigers
and the play got a little careless..
The Scots were unwilling to lie
down and kept fighting to stay in
the game. Taking possession near

midfield after a short Marquez
punt, St. Andrews mounted their
first drive of the game and quarter-
back Joey Lancos on a yard sneak
with 2:06 remaining in the third


period. The Tigers roared right
back as Colin Ricketts returned
the kickoff 33 yards. From his tail-
back position, Ricketts then ran
for 13 and 7 yards before Hughes


reeled off his 32 yards scamper for
the Tigers final score of the game.

on fumbles in' the final period
and the Scots took advantage of


the first one that they got at the
Clewiston 22 yard line. It only
took them three plays to score to
make the score 28-14. The Scots
put a scare into the Tigers when
they recovered the second fumble
at the Tiger 40. But penalties for
delay of game and holding set the
Scots back and the Tiger defense
held to keep the game safely out
of reach.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, 'Well, a win is a win but we
played sloppy in the late stages.
We were substituting trying to
give our two way players a break
and turned the ball over twice."
Starting Tiger tailback Colin
Ricketts was the workhorse for the
offense and had 104 hard earned
yards on 23 carries. The Tigers
played without Delvin Hughes,
who began the year as a solid
Division I prospect, who was per-
manently removed from the team
prior to the game for disciplinary
reasons relating to school policy.
The Tiger defense was domi-
nating in most stages of the game.
Defensive end Willie Armstrong
finished the night with 10 solo
tackles, a couple of assists, two
quarterback sacks and was in the
Scots backfield all night. Line-
backer Alex Rubio and corner-
back Alier Gaines both had pass
interceptions, with Gaines return-
ing his for 21 yards.
Clewiston travels to
Okeechobee this week to take on
very good Brahmans team in the
regular season finale.

Perils of


prosperity

By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church, Clewiston
"What this country needs is a
good depression", a bitter busi-
nessman said recently. He was
joking of course. No one aware
of the human misery brought
about by the economic ordeal
known as the Great Depression
of the 1930's would seriously ad-
vocate a depression as a remedy
for America's ills.
There's no denying that many
of America's problems are the re-
sult of an inability to handle mate-'
rial abundance. But that's not an
economic problem. That's a spiri-
tual problem. The cure isn't de-
pression, or any other economic
remedy. The cure is repentance!
America must be turned to God!
"Every good gift and every per-
fect gift is from above, and cometh
down from the Father of lights,"
(James 1:17). A terrible judgment
awaits those who forget this truth,
who wallow in the blessings of
God but refuse to worship the
God of blessings. I call it the "Peril
of Prosperity." The Lord issued a
grim warning about this peril iA
Deuteronomy 8:11-20. Through
His servant Moses He said: "Be-
ware that thou forget not the
Lord thy God, in not keeping His
commandments, and His judg-
ments, and His statutes, which
I command thee this day: Lest
when thou has eaten and art full,
and has built goodly houses, and
dwelt therein; and when thy herds
and they flocks multiply,,and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied,
and all that thou has is multiplied:
Then thine heart be lifted up, and
thou forget the Lord thy God...and
thou say in thine heart, "My power
and the might of mine hand hath
gotten me this wealth. But thou
shalt remember the Lord thy God:
for it is He that giveth thee power
to get wealth..."
"And it shall be, if thou do at
all forget the Lord thy God, and
walk after other gods, and serve
them, I testify against you this day
that ye shall surely perish. As the
nations which the Lord destroy-
eth beforeyour face, so shall ye
perish; because ye would not be
obedient unto the voice of the
Lord your God."
America has eaten and is full.
It has goodly houses- and dwelt
therein. It herds and flocks, its sil-
ver and gold have multiplied. But
- America has fallen victim to the
'Peril of Prosperity. Morally, Amer-
ica is bankrupt. Marriages have
dissolved like snowballs on a hot
stove and many don't even bother
with marriage but live together
without it. Sexual licentiousness is
rampant. Homosexuality is wide-
spread and many look upon it as an
acceptable lifestyle, but God calls
it an abomination. Abortion has
become an accepted alternative
to responsible, loving parenthood.
(Millions in tax money is used for
women who say they are too poor
to pay for their own.) Alcohol is
and has been a serious problem
with estimates of the number of
"problem drinkers" ranging in the
millions. Illegal Drugs continues
to be a major problem.
America doesn't need to re-
peat the Great Depression. Ameri-
can needs to return to the Great
Physician!


Always do remember the treasure you are


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I know a number of people
who are big into yard sales. They
believe that one person's trash
is another per-
son's treasure. '
I believe it. The
Clewiston Gar- '
den Club had
its annual rum- .
mage sale last
Saturday you l .
should have
seen the trea- John
sures they had! Hicks
Even more, you
should have seen the way people
snatched up some of those trea-
sures!
I shouldn't talk. Many times in
my childhood I gleaned treasures


from the neighbors' trash pile be-
cause I figured I could find some
use for that perfectly good "stuff"
they were tossing out. There
were times that I found treasures
that we kept for months before
my dad sneaked them back out
for the garbage collector to pick
up.
It's hard for me to throw
things away, because I always
get to thinking that some day I
will have a need for that particu-
lar item. But it can get extreme.
I recently went into our garage
and found things I had forgotten
we had and others that I hadn't
used for years. Sometimes I get a
little envious of those who have a
philosophy that if it hasn't been
used in a year, they need to get
rid of it. If it hasn't been missed,
it's going out the door. If there is
no current use for it, it's gone. It


is good that some groups have
rummage sales, because it is an
inspiration for me to clean out
the closets of things I don't need
or use anymore.
These scenarios are also
played out in our relationships.
There are those who look at life
in a way that they never want to
throw away or give up much of
anything. If they aren't careful,
they might find that friendships
and relationships are neglected
or sacrificed when their lives be-
come full of clutter and activities.
Sometimes these relationships
are even forgotten.
On the other side, there are
those who want to dump a rela-
tionship at the first sign of trouble
figuring them a waste of time. If
they have no use for it, then it's
gone.
In reality, most of us know


someone, maybe a friend, a
family member, or a colleague
at work, who might be thinking
that his or her life is useless or of
no worth because to them, no
one cares. Maybe they have been
dumped on, maybe they just feel
like trash because they feel they
have been forgotten or aren't
worth the effort.
Fortunately for us, God figures
that each person is worth the ef-
fort. God doesn't throw people
away and He doesn't forget about
us. According to God, everyone
is a treasure. And yes, believe it
or not, God does go through the
trash piles of life looking for those
of us who have been trashed or
discarded, giving the promise
of restoration and new life. God
doesn't see the trash; He sees the
potential of treasure. Even more,
God literally makes treasures out


of trash. Many times, we are the
instrument God uses to make this
transformation possible.
In the book of Genesis we are
told that we were created in His
image and God did the creating.
God created us to live in close re-
lationship with Him not just to
know about Him. If you have any
doubts about how far He would
go for you or how much He.
cares for you and wants to be in
relationship with you, remember
what the Bible says happened six
hours one Friday in the book of
John.
God laid down His life for all
of us because He loves all of us.
God doesn't make junk; so let's
not live junky lives. God makes
treasures. Remember the trea-
sure that you are. Share it with
others.

Preferences in faults and sins: who said there are favorites?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I recall a story about a mother
who was worried about her son,
who seemed a bit nervous. The
doctor told her "He seems pre-
occupied with his hands." The
mother replied "I don't know
why, I wash them for him eight
times every day."
At times we get "pre-occu-
pied" with something and fail
to realize we've lost perspective.
One person complained about
lack of enforcement in one of the
federal agencies and was told that
terrorism is a priority right now,
not some of the other "crimes."
I remember when everyone was
supposed to have a fall-out shel-
ter because of the possibility of
atomic war. Today, they are more
of a curiosity, but the possibility
of atomic war is just as real as
ever.
Human nature seems to latch


onto something and become pre-
occupied with it; as is one sort of
tragedy or fear is greater than an-
other. It may be so for awhile, but
not so for the .~
long run. In so-
ciety or religious
circles, we seem .
to have times of '.:"' '' '
"pet sins" as if
one sin is worse
than another
and certain ones
can be blissfully Samuel S.
ignored for the Thomas
time being. Ev-
eryone is against murder and
abuse, as they rightly should be.
Nobody gets too upset when a
scandal hits the papers and we
seem to find it more amusing
than sinful when someone is
caught in a compromising situa-
tion.
Stealing is usually regarded as
wrong; especially if you are the
victim, but all right if it is from
somebody that is not liked or


from a government. In reality, our
view of "sinfulness" is tempered
by cultural overtones; the Lord
didn't rank-order the Ten Com-
mandments or suggest we should
concentrate on some but not oth-
ers. We can shrug our shoulders
and recognize Paul's analysis of
the whole mess: "There is no one
righteous, not even one (Romans
3:10)." It seems while we are
pointing out the sins of others,
they return the favor and point
out ours; both of us, though, fall
short. Paul concludes that we
will not be "declared righteous"
in God's sight by "observing the
law (or that portion we happen
to like) but rather "through the
law, we become conscious of sin
(v.20)" I think this is a religious
way of saying that we aren't go-
ing to make it by choosing what
rules we would like to obey and
condemning others for violating
them; by feeling good because
we respect our favorites and ig-
nore the ones we secretly (or not


so secretly) like to commit; then
finding someone to look down on
because they break our favorites,
but may do better with the ones
that cause us problems. What's
the "antidote?' Paul goes on in
Romans to say "There is no dif-
ference, we all fall short (v.22)."
If there is "justification" it is to
be understood as we understand
those we love in our own lives;
and then realizing that God un-
derstands that way, too. I have to
recognize that the people I love
are imperfect and not capable of
being the ideals that I'd always
like them to be.
Someone recently shared with
me about how they "blew up" at
a friend who made a "stupid mis-
take" and "should have known
better." I suggested that the tar-
get of the anger was not capable
of doing what once might have
been done; age had taken its' toll.
Demands and expectations were
made that are no longer possible
to meet.


Every parent must ask, is it too late for my kids?


By Pastor Brian Hamrick
First Baptist Church, Clewiston
I thought "pasturing" a church
was hard, until I became a par-
ent. There is this tremendous
burden that the Christian parent
feels, and also, the temptation
to great frustration when things
don't.go well or smoothly. At the
youngest of ages, we may find
it a struggle just to get them to
eat or to be potty trained. As they
grow up so fast, we find there are
new issues around the corner,
and those seem to hit us before
we know it.
Because of the difficulty of the
task, I'm afraid so many Christian
parents despair in their own guilt
and failures over the challenges


they've had with their children.
And when those feelings come,
we assume that there is nothing
we can really do about it, kids
will be kids, people say (or teens
will be teens). And so we private-
ly pray for God's help, though we
publicly retreat from being spiri-
tual leaders in their lives- we sur-
render, perhaps because we are
tired of the pushback we may get
from them, perhaps because we
only want things to be easy and
convenient- which parenting can
never be.
Thomas Scott was well known
for his happy and successful fam-
ily. When he was asked about
how this came about, he said,
"I have always sought for them


in the first place, the kingdom of
God and his righteousness." Too
often, we make the mistake of
letting what our children want to
do be the most valuable things
in their life. For our spiritual in-
fluence toward them to be effec-
tive, everything else, in life needs
to be subservient to dealing with
their own hearts before God in a
regular way.
Is it too late for your kids?
No. That is a lie straight from
hell. The Bible says, "I can do all
things through him [Jesus] who
gives me strength." (Philippians
4:13) If you feel too weak to ac-
complish anything in this area,
you are probably depending on
yourself too much and are en-


tertaining too much doubt and
unbelief. Our children and teens
are still being shaped. It's never
too late to have good spiritual
influence in their lives. But we
must not procrastinate, or think
it is someone else's primary job.
No one can do it for you- it is a
job that cannot be outsourced
well. No one is in a better place
to train a child in righteousness,
even if you feel like right now
your child does not listen to you.
God has called you to be a prima-
ry means of grace in your child's
life. Whatever failures you have
made, confess them to the Lord
and get on with the business of
being spiritually influential in the
lives of your children and teens.


I know of a wonderful mother
whose household finances were
always in disarray. Many a time
the electricity was about to be cut
off and her husband would be fu-
rious. His explosions didn't help,
but he didn't offer to take charge
of paying the bills, either. We all
have our good areas and our
not-so-good ones; God seems to
know this and provides a recog-
nition about it all when He pro-
claims through His apostle that
we are "justified freely through
His grace (v.24)" and that we are
justified ultimately by our faith.
Thanks-be to God for that: now
we have something to really be
thankful for, and something to
help us recognize that others
have their faults as we have
ours. Most of all, God is- great
enough to see beyond it all and
love us anyway. That's really a
great reason for going to Church
and giving thanks. He doesn't
need to rank-order, overlook, or
ignore, but loves anyway.

Nativity Display

This big, full-color outdoor display is a dramatic and
easy way to share the warmth and joy of the holiday
season with friends and neighbors. Printed on
weather-resistant paper with waterproof, "sunfast"
inks, the Nativity display includes the 14 figures pic-
tured plus instructions for building the stable. The
camels stand about five feet tall.
The only materials needed are the posters, a few
sheets of exterior plywood, waterproof glue, paint
and sealer. The whole family can help put the figures
together in a weekend or two.
To build the display, just glue the posters onto ply-
wood, saw around the outer edges and paint the sides
and backs black. Make stakes or stands from the
remaining plywood or galvanized pipe and set the
display up where desired.

Nativity Display (No. 7) ... $49.95
Table-top Nativity plan (No. 884)... $9.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)

To order, circle item(s), Please be sure to
clip & send w/ check to: include your name,
U-Bild Features address and the name of

U.S. Sugar begins 2007-2008 sugarcane harvest


CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar
began its 2007-08 sugarcane har-
vest season, delivering sugarcane
to the Company's newly enlarged
and automated sugar manufac-
turing facility that has a process-
ing capacity of 42,000 tons of
cane per day. The company plans
to harvest approximately 162,946
acres, yielding an estimated 6.2
million tons of sugarcane and 13
million cwt of refined sugar. This
crop will be similar in size to last
year's crop, with residual dam-


age from the hurricanes and the
drought.
"The culmination of three
years of hard work and strategic
planning amidst ongoing op-
erations, our Clewiston facility
is now the world's largest fully
integrated cane sugar mill and re-
finery," said Robert Coker, Senior
Vice President, Public Affairs. "It
will allow us to be the lowest
cost sugar producer in the United
States and a lower cost producer
than Mexican sugar facilities.'


According to Mr. Coker, free
trade agreements and negotia-
tions with additional sugar-pro-
ducing foreign countries mean
more foreign sugar entering the
U.S. market. The increased ef-
ficiency of the new milling op-
erations is aimed at ensuring that
U.S. Sugar is competitive into the
future.
The construction project,
termed "Breakthrough" for its
dramatic consolidation and trans-
formation of the Company's
two older raw sugar milling op-


erations, incorporates the best
sugar technology from around
the world. Initiated in October
2005, it was at one time the larg-.
est private industrial construction
project in the United States. The
project was completed in three,
one-year phases concurrent with
ongoing harvest and milling ac-
tivities. Phase III, which included
the demolition of 90 major pieces
of equipment, installation of 262
new pieces of equipment and
284,000 construction man-hours,
was completed just before the


harvest began.
"The entire Breakthrough
project was planned and imple-
mented in 36 months. It's too
bad we weren't able to get the
weather on the schedule. We
have a state-of-the-art processing
facility, but our crops are still re-
covering from multiple hurricane
damage during the worst drought
on record," Coker said.
U.S. Sugar's railroad network.
will deliver approximately 1000
40-ton railcars of sugarcane from
area sugarcane fields to the Clew-


iston Mill each day. Inside the
mill, the automated system is op-
erated from a centralized control
room with flat screen televisions
monitoring the major processes.
The cane stalks are crushed to
release the juice from the fibrous
stalk. While the juice is processed
into sugar, the remaining cane
fiber serves as the clean, renew-
able energy source for both the
raw sugar mill and adjacent cane
sugar refinery, making the pro-
cess extremely energy efficient.


Compensation rate reduction to help small businesses


TALLAHASSEE The Na-
tional Federation of Independent
Business/Florida applauds the
Office of Insurance Regulation's
approval, of the National Council
on Compensation Insurance's fil-
ing for worker's compensation
rates. The filing provides for a de-
crease of 18.4 percent on average
in the workers' compensation in-
surance rate and is estimated to
produce a savings of over $700
million. The new rate is effective


Jan.'1, 2008.
"This is great news for Flori-
da's business community," said
NFIB/Florida Executive Director,
Bill Herrle. "For five years, the
workers' compensation rate has
continued to decrease, which
positively impacts business
around the state," he said.
The rate reduction was imple-
mented based on legislative re-
forms of 2003. NFIB lobbied hard
during that legislative session to


ensure that the rights of small
business and employers were
represented and protected.
NFIB/Florida's state director
in 2003 Steve Birtman praised
leaders of the House and Senate
for passing the measure, stating,
"The Legislature's commend-
able action promises to greatly
enhance the state's economic de-
velopment and well-being."
Director Herrle says that five
years later is a good time to look


back on the package and recog-
nize positive the impact that it
had.
Mr. Birtman was correct in
predicting the impact the 2003 re-
form would have on small busi-
ness, Mr. Herrle said. "It was a
hard vote facing legislators then,
who were up against several in-
terests, including the trial lawyers
who were fighting against a cap
on attorney's fees, but real re-
form prevailed."


The announcement of an 18.4
percent rate decrease marks the
largest reduction since the sys-
tem was reformed in 2003. Since
then, the workers' compensation
rate has been reduced by over 50
percent statewide. Reform was
needed to the system as a result
of skyrocketing rates and lack of
availability. Florida's businesses
were. paying among the highest
premium rates in the nation for
workers' compensation rates,


with injured workers receiving
minimal benefits.
"We have come a long way in
alleviating the burden of workers'
compensation rates on Florida's
small businesses, Mr. Herrle said.
"The reduction in rates is allow-
ing employers across Florida to
more easily focus on growing
their business and protect the
livelihoods of themselves and
their, employees."


Consumers may benefit from recent interest rate cut


ATLANTA, GA The recent
decision by the Federal Open
Market Committee to cut the fed-
eral funds rate by .25 percent to
4.50 percent is designed to stimu-
late the economy and could help
consumers by lowering payments
on various types of loans.
Consumer Credit Counseling
Service (CCCS) of Greater Atlanta,
Inc., offers some tips for under-
standing the benefits that lower
interest rates can have on your
financial situation.
When the Federal Reserve
lowers interest rates, banks fol-


low suit. Commercial banks usu-
ally follow the Federal Reserve's
actions by lowering their prime
interest rates. Watch to see if your
bank cuts rates on various loans.
If you have any high-interest rate
loans, or those with an adjustable
rate, speak with a loan officer to
see if you can get a fixed-rate loan
at a lower interest rate.
Lower interest rates allow
consumers to consolidate debt.
Consider consolidating high-in-
terest balances into one low, fixed
monthly payment. You can count
on a predictable payment that
can eliminate your debt at the end


of the term. By saving on interest,
you can keep the unused funds
for home improvements, medi-
cal expenses or any other large
purchases. You can also use your
savings to repay the debt more
quickly.
Lower interest rates may favor-
ably affect the housing market:
The current oversupply of homes
nationwide is reducing the prices'
of many homes, and the rate cut
could help lower interest rates on
fixed-rate mortgage loans. If you
have been waiting to buy a home,
now may be the time. Be certain
to check with your lender to see if


they will lower their interest rates
on 15 and 30-year fixed rate mort-
gage loans.
Possible lower rates on credit
cards: If you have one or more
credit cards, and you have been
making this payment and other
payments on time, you may qual-
ify for a lower interest rate. Check
with your lender to find out and
shop around for the best rate.
Home equity loans are af-
fected by interest rates, too: Many
people have home equity loans
where the interest rate is tied to
the prime lending rate. People


with home equity loans should
check to see if their current rate
will drop, as well as the monthly
payment. If the rate or the pay-
ment does, not drop, it may be
worthwhile to call competing
banks to find a lower rate.
Continue to spend your mon-
ey wisely. With the holiday sea-
son just around the corner, now
is the time to be careful about
any spending. Take advantage of
interest rate cuts to consolidate
your debt and lower your pay-
ments, but make sure you do not
spend too much during the holi-
days. Develop a budget for your


holiday shopping and stick to it.

Governor Crist names November Hire a Veteran Month


TALLAHASSEE Recogniz-
ing the tremendous value of
those who have served our coun-
try, Florida Governor Charlie Crist
has proclaimed November as
Hire a Veteran Month. The Gover-
nor's proclamation reaffirms our
commitment to those who have
served our nation in times of war
and peace.
Coordinated by the Agency
for Workforce Innovation (AWI),
the Florida Department of Veter-
ans' Affairs and our workforce


partners, Workforce Florida,
Inc: and the regional workforce
boards, this initiative is designed
to .remind employers of the un-
matched economic resource pro-
vided by our state's veterans.
"Florida is home to an esti-
mated 1.8 million veterans and
has the fastest growing veterans
population in the nation," said
AWI Director Monesia T. Brown.
"Our veterans possess valuable
leadership, business and techni-


cal skills gained while serving
their country. They are a versatile
and well-trained resource for em-
ployers and Florida is fortunate
to have ready access to such a
highly-skilled workforce."
AWI is committed to meeting
the needs of our heroic veterans
and our employers through high
quality programs and services.
Such programs include employ-
ment and training initiatives such
as the Veterans' Employment &
Training System, Hire a Vet, Citi-


zen Soldier and the Military Fami-
lies program. Last year AWl's One
Stop Career Centers served more
than 74,000 veterans, with more
than 12,000 recently separated
from the Armed Forces.
Florida's veterans come to
the workforce highly adept with
new technology, and are skilled
and trained in a variety of areas.
The state is committed to bring-
ing employers and veterans to-
gether using the full network of
workforce partnerships and pro-


fessionals across the state, along
with the Employ Florida Market-
place, located online at http://
www.employflorida.com/.
"Demographics of veterans are
shifting with the return of young
troops who have served in the
Global War On Terrorism," said
Florida Department of Veterans'
Affairs Executive Director LeRoy
Collins Jr. "FDVA is working with
AWI to assist veterans looking for
employment to include lifetime
veterans' preference for those


seeking jobs with municipal,
county and state government."
Veterans offer Florida's busi-
nesses the benefits of high skills,
education, leadership, maturity
and dedication learned or en-
hanced during their service in the
military. By bringing recognition
to our veterans, we honor not
only their military service but also
the contributions they bring to the
workforce. Join us in honoring
their commitment and sacrifice
to our country. Hire a veteran!
