A view at pedestrian ordinance


Christmas decoration
contest planned

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven city council met
Nov. 6 and examined the pos-
sibilites for a new ordinance,
considered amending a current
ordinance and studied a county
wide ordinance that will affect
the city.
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon was
present to offer information.


The council received a let-
ter of request from the Glades
County Community Traffic
Safety Team (CTST). If refers to
the ongoing problem of student
pedestrians choosing to ignore
the designated crosswalk, and
endangering themselves as they
attempt to stop traffic and walk
across a major four lane high-
way. The traffic team asked the
council to pass an ordinance ad-
dressing the problem.
"The team is asking the City
to support CTST by passing an
ordinance prohibiting the cross-


ing of U.S. Hwy. 27 and Seventh
Street between the hours of 7:30
to 8:30 a.m. and 2:30 to 3:31U
p.m. during the week," stated
the letter from Angelica Pena,
CTST chairman.
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon men-
tioned that GCSO has been in-
volved in looking at strategies
to discourage students from
crossing in front of Joey's Pizza.
Steve Ramunni, city attorney,
commented that he must ex-
amine existing city ordinances
and state laws first to see if any
of them apply in this case, and

how to word a new one when
needed. The council agreed to
look into this matter and gather
information before making any
decisions.
A county wide curfew for ju-
veniles has been requested by
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon and he
explained more of the details to
the council because the city will
be included. He reported that ju-
venile crimes such as muggings
and robberies have increased
because many minors as young
as 12 are wandering the streets
at night.


The sheriff added that there
would be exceptions for young
people on their way to and from
work, or for school and church
related activities. The curfew or-
dinance may set a deadline at
11 p.m. on school nights and at
midnight on Friday and Saturday
nights. Also, more county meet-
ings and public hearings are nec-
essary before it can be finalized.

tice calling for bids on its water

Nov. 1 Tourism town hall meeting


Hendry/Glades
county tourism
summit met Nov.8

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY There
was a town hall meeting in the
Glades County commission-
ers chambers Nov. 1 to gather
information and ideas for the
early stages of the Tourism
Development Council (TDC),
which is a part of Florida Heart-
land Rural Economic Develop-
ment Initiative (FHREDI).
The meeting was conduct-
ed with Tracy Whirls, Glades


County Economic Develop-
ment Council (GCEDC) direc-
tor.
John Scherlacker, Florida
Freshwater Frontier tourism
director, reported that the
number one request of visitors
coming to Florida is eco-tour-
ism, and not the decadence of
Walt Disney World.
"Glades County is a perfect
example for eco-tourism," said
Mr. Scherlacker of the area's
outdoor attractions.
He went on to explain that
the vast majority of people
who come to Florida are visi-
tors who want to indulge in
the natural beauty of the state.
Tourists are attracted to fishing,


eco-tourism, hunting, farm-
lands and frontier history -- all
of which Glades County cap
claim to have.
Bill Redman, The Glades RV
Resort, reminded everyone that
there are philosophical differ-
ences among business owners,
long time residents and new-
comers as to what is precious
or vital to the health of Glades
County land and people. How-
ever, despite differences in pri-
orities there are ways to blend
them for the prosperity of all.

is already in effect in Highlands,

Nov. 16-22 proclaimed National Farm-City Week


GAINESVILLE As wise
,stewards and innovative entre-
preneurs, dedicated farmers and
ranchers improve our well-being
by working to ensure a healthy
and abundant agricultural sup-
ply. To succeed in this important
enterprise, our farmers rely on
essential partnerships with urban
communities to supply, sell and
deliver finished products across
the country and around the
world. National Farm-City Week,
celebrated annually on the week
leading to and ending on Thanks-
giving Day, recognizes the impor-
tance of this cooperative network
to the success of America's agri-
cultural industry.
"Our farmers know how to
grow the 280 different commodi-
'ties that we produce in the state
of Florida," said John Hoblick,
president of Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. "They also know that
it takes many other partnerships
in order for that food to get to
America's table, and it's the suc-
cess of those partnerships that
we celebrate during Farm-City
Week."
Today, the agricultural indus-
try provides us with many of the
necessities of life, such as food,
clothing and fuel for our energy
needs. Agriculture employs more
than 24 million workers includ-
ing farmers, shippers, processors,
marketers, grocers, truck drivers,


inspectors and others in America
who annually contribute more
than $1.3 trillion to our gross do-
mestic product.
Farm-city collaborations help
maintain and improve our na-
tion's food supply and contribute
to a better quality of life for count-
less citizens," said Mr. Hoblick.
"With this Farm-City Week obser-
vance, we commend the many
Americans whose hard work and
ingenuity reflect the true spirit of
America and help ensure a pros-
perous future for all."
Where does Florida agriculture
fit into this equation? Florida has
44,000 farmers who grow more
than 280 different crops on a com-
mercial scale that's more than
any other state except California
- with cash receipts totaling over
$6.7 billion. Florida agriculture
has an annual impact.of $97.8 bil-
lion to the state's economy.
"Through our farm-city part-
nerships, agriculture has an enor-
mous economic impact on our
state," said Mr. Hoblick.
How are they getting the job
done? Florida farmers employed
more than 94,000 farm workers,
and overall the industry supports
over 388,000 jobs in the state.
And what about the environ-
ment? About two-thirds of Florida
is farmland and forests. More than
30 percent is devoted to agricul-
ture, which includes crop produc-


tion as well as improved pastures,
woodlands and open spaces, and
nearly 40 percent, representing
commercial forestry, is covered
with trees. These well-managed,
productive lands help preserve
Florida's environment by provid-
ing green space, conserving water
and protecting wildlife habitat.
Farmers and ranchers, grow-
ers and producers, care about
their environment. According to
a U.S. Geological Survey report,,
Florida farmers reduced their
groundwater withdrawals 7 per-
cent by installing more efficient
irrigation systems and imple-
menting other Best Management
Practices (BMPs) such as using
reclaimed wastewater and stored
rainfall. During the same period,
withdrawal for public supply in-
creased by 7 percent due to pop-
ulation growth. Agricultural crops
provide the same environmental
benefits as natural vegetation.
Plants and trees emit water into
the atmosphere through transpi-
ration, contributing to the hydro-
logic cycle that produces rainfall.
Once land is paved over it cannot
absorb the water and recharge
the aquifer. Agricultural land does
not waste rainfall. Water not ab-
sorbed by plants or evaporated
into the atmosphere is returned
to the soil where it replenishes
the aquifer and provides ground-
water for other uses.


Agricultural land also provides
homes for Florida's unique wild-
life such as alligators, bald eagles,
panthers and wood storks. Many
farms and ranches have estab-
lished management programs to
maintain wildlife habitat.
With agriculture as a corner-
stone of our nation's security and
way of life, America's farmers
and ranchers provide the safest,
most abundant and most afford-
able food supply in the world. It's
important to remember, though,
that American agriculture reach-
es far beyond the farm or ranch.
It is an industry that includes
many urban and suburban resi-
dents who help process, sell and
trade the nation's food and fiber.
We remember those 24 million
American workers, about 17 per-
cent of the total U.S. workforce,
who are involved.
National Farm-City Week
strives to increase understand-
ing, cooperation and relation-
ships between rural and urban
residents. As this year's com-
memoration again culminates
on Thanksgiving, all Americans
are encouraged to thank some-
one who helps make it possible
for you and your family to enjoy
the bounty of our food supply. It's
a partnership summed up best
whether.you are from the farm or
the city as, "Let's eat!"

PUBLIC HEARING
HELMS ROAD EXTENSION PD&E STUDY


Financial Project ID: 419948 1 28 01


Hendry County, in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will
conduct a public hearing for the proposed Helms Road Extension project. The hearing will
provide interested persons the opportunity to express their views concerning the location,
conceptual design, social, economic, and environmental effects of the proposed extension.
The hearing will be held:

The proposed project involves extending Helms Road from SR 80 to SR 29 in Hendry County,
Florida. Over the past year, a study has been underway to provide documented information
necessary for Hendry County to reach a decision on the type, design, and location of
improvements to Helms Road. Right-of-way acquisition is proposed. Potential encroachments
on wetlands and floodplains have been identified as a result of this project and may be given
special consideration under Executive Orders 11990 and 11988.

A regularly scheduled meeting of the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners will
begin at 5:00 p.m. The formal public hearing for the proposed Helms Road Extension project
is on the agenda and will consist of a presentation by the County on the project and its

Local Democrat receives award


GLADES COUNTY At its
state convention in Orlando on
Saturday, Florida Democratic
Party officials presented Glades
County Democratic Committee
Chairwoman Ellen Hawk-Geake
with the 2007 Golden Gavel
award for her leadership and ac-
complishments in reinvigorating
the party's county organization.
The gathering was held at a
Walt Disney World hotel and at-
tended by 3000 delegates and
guests who came together to dis-
cuss issues and plan for the 2008
election campaign season.
Delegates competed to draw
attention to the presidential pri-
mary candidates, with follow-
ers of Hillary Clinton and Barak
Obama most vocal. The Bill Rich-
ardson and John Edwards cam-
paigns were also represented,
but the only candidate to actu-
ally address the delegates was
Mike Gravel, former Senator from
Alaska.
The Democratic National Party
has demanded that all its presi-
dential candidates steer clear of
Florida because the state leg-
islature voted to move up our
presidential primary election
date from March to Jan. 29,2008.
U.S. Senator Bill Nelson and U.S.
Representative Alcee Hastings

health care, education, the econo-
my, and the war in Iraq. We know
the Democrats can do a better job


of leading on all these issues."
Other state delegates attending
from Hendry and Glades Counties
were Dr. John Geake, R. Mitchell
Thomas, Roberta Preston, Dr.
John Capece, and Hendry County
Commissioner Janet Taylor.


Free your yard of hazardous waste


Homeowners getting ready
for the Christmas will soon be
searching the garage and shed for
all those wonderful holiday deco-
rations. While the search is going
on, it is a good time to rid your
Florida yard of all kinds of stuff
that doesn't need to be there.
Okeechobee's Solid Waste De-
partment is holding a Household
Hazardous Waste Amnesty Days
this coming Saturday, Nov. 17. It's
a chance to dispose of wastes that
can cause problems for people,
pets and the environment.
Take these problems out of
your garage and get them to the
county's vehicle maintenance
facility (306 NW 9th Ave.) from 9
a.m. until 3 p.m. Today's column
outlines the kinds of materials
they can take and offers some tips
on how to safely get them there.
Why bother with
Hazardous Waste?
Hazardous wastes should not
be put into the regular household
trash collections. Amnesty Days
provide a way for residents to get
rid of this stuff for free. The Solid
Waste Department can then keep
these materials out of the landfill,
and avoid expensive accidents
and clean-up costs when this
stuff is abandoned by the side of
the road.
Several years ago, I was
employed by a research facil-
ity. My job included cleaning up
years of unused and unknown
lab chemicals and pesticides.
Over the years, containers were
shoved to the back of the shelf,
bottles cracked and leaked, bags
and boxes got moist and caked,
and labels became unreadable.
When it came time to renovate
the building, these materials had
to first be removed and since we
had no idea what some of these
materials were, they were consid-
ered hazardous materials.
To a hazardous waste con-
tractor, unknowns mean "lots of
money". Technicians get dressed


up in expensive protective gear,
take samples and run expensive
tests to try to find out what it may
be. Then they place the wastes
into special (expensive) contain-
ers that will take these problems
to their final destinations big
expensive incinerators, or big
expensive hazardous waste land-
fills. (Did I mention that disposing
of unknown hazardous wastes is
expensive?)-
Hazardous Wastes can be pre-
vented. Here's how: when pur-
chasing chemicals, buy only what
is needed for right now. Buying
more may seem to save money,
but if only a little bit of the con-
tainer Is used, the rest is wasted.
This costs the purchaser money,
including disposal costs.
Besides, many chemicals will
break down if not stored properly
under cool dry conditions and
not many folks will air-condition
-their shed or garage. If you- have
excess chemicals that someone
else could properly use, give
them away.f the container was
never opened in the first place,
see if the store will take it back.

Amnesty Day Check-list
The kinds of materials being
collected this Saturday include
the obvious: pesticides, cleaning
solvents, pool chemicals, or pe-
troleum products. But it can also
include other kinds of household
products:
Used motor oil, old gasoline,
transmission and brake fluids, or.
other fuel mixtures, plus oil fil-
ters.
SOil-based paints (that are
cleaned up with. turpentine or
mineral spirits flammable). La-
tex paints (cleanup with water)
are not hazardous cans can
be left open to dry out, and then
placed into the regular garbage
pickup.
Mercury-based thermom-
eters or thermostats (with the sil-
ver stuff, not the red stuff)
Weed and feed fertilizers
(the ones that have been sitting

Transporting Household
Hazardous Waste
If you have a leaker, put it
into a larger bucket or heavy duty
plastic bag. If the label is intact,
use a permanent marker to label
the bag or bucket with the name
of the product. Leakers may con-
taminate your vehicle if they are
not adequately wrapped up and
tied down. Don't pile them on top
of the golf clubs or the craft sup-
plies in the trunk we don't need
this stuff to get contaminated and
become hazardous waste as well.
Carefully place your contri-
butions into the back of a pickup
or the trunk of the car. Do not
transport these materials in the
cab or on the floor where passen-
gers may come in contact with
it. Drive slowly and carefully to
-the County's vehiclee Maintenance
facility, 306 NW 9th Avenue in
Okeechobee from 9 a.m. to 3
p.m. on Saturday Nov. 17.
Let's see if we can beat the re-
cord of 150 vehicles and 50 drums
of stuff that was turned in at last
April's Amnesty Day. If you don't
do it now, you will have less space
to store your Christmas decora-
tions you will have to keep this
stuff until spring when the next
Amnesty Day will be held.

Sweet potatoes nutritious, delicious


This Thanksgiving many
American feasts will feature an
all-American food the sweet
potato.
Sweet potatoes were probably
served at the First Thanksgiving
because Native Americans were
harvesting sweet potatoes before
white men arrived in this coun-
try.
Sweet potatoes are one of
nature's "superfoods." They are
naturally high in vitamins and nu-
trients. The Center for Science in
the Public Interest (CSPI) ranks
the sweet potato as the #1 most
nutritional vegetable.
According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture, one medium
sweet potato contains about 130
calories and has 2.15 grams of
protein; 3.9 grams of dietary fi-
ber; 265.2 mg potassium; 28.6 mg
calcium, 18.2 mcg folate; 29.5 mg
vitamin C and 26081 IU vitamin
A. That means a sweet potato
contains about twice the recom-
mended daily allowance of vita-
min A and more than one-third
of the requirements for vitamin
C. According to the "USDA, there
is more dietary fiber in one sweet
potato than in a bowl of oatmeal.
Sweet potatoes have almost no
fat and are low in sodium.
Sweet potatoes can be served
baked, broiled, steamed, mashed,
"French fried" or baked in a pie.
Sweet potatoes can be many
things but one thing they are
not is "yams."
Sweet potatoes and yams are
not even in the same plant fatn-
ily. Yams grow in tropical and
subtropical regions of the world.
They contain more starch and
sugar and lack some of the vita-
mins found in sweet potatoes.
The confusion between yams
and sweet potatoes probably
started when African slaves re-
ferred to sweet potatoes "nyami"
because sweet potatoes remind-
ed them of the starchy edible
roots found in their native lands.
Later when Louisiana farm-
ers started growing an orange-
fleshed variety of sweet potato,
they marketed them as "American
Yams" or "Louisiana Yams" to
distinguish them from other vari-
eties of sweet potatoes grown in
northern states. At the time, there
was little chance these "American
Yams" would be confused with
real yams because real yams are
not grown in the United States.


A .
Healthier '
Life m i


with Katrina Elsken

With trade agreements meaning
more foreign produce may be
founding U.S. grocery stores, it
may be possible find real yams
for sale. But the two vegetables
are easy to tell apart. Real yams
have a rough skin and are usually
yellow or purple. Sweet potatoes
are smooth-skinned and orange.
(Some canned sweet potatoes
are still sold under the "Yams"
name, but under USDA law, must
also be labeled as "sweet pota-
toes.")
When buying sweet potatoes,
look for those that are smooth-
skinned, plump, dry and clean.
They can be stored in any cool,
dry place. They should not be re-
frigerated unless they have been
cooked. If you used canned sweet
potatoes, one cut of canned
equals about one medium fresh
sweet potato. Canned sweet po-
tatoes are already cooked, so you
may have to adjust recipes to
avoid overcooking.
The following recipes from
the Louisiana Sweet Potato Com-
mission:

Sweet Potato
Pecan Pie
1 (9 inch) unbaked pastry
shell
1 pound (2 medium) sweet
potatoes, pealed and steamed

The Louisiana Sweet Potato
Commission, a division of the
Louisiana Department of Agricul-
ture provided the following sweet
potato facts:
Sweet potatoes were grown
in Peru as early as 750 BC.
Native Americans were al-
ready growing sweet potatoes
when Columbus arrived on the
northern continent in 1492.
Both Louis XV's and Em-
press Josephine's fondness of
the sweet potato encouraged two
short periods of popularity for this
veggie in Europe in the late 18th
and early 19th centuries.
African slaves in the South
called the sweet potato "nyami"
because it reminded them of the
starchy, edible tuber of that name
that grew in their homeland. The
Senegalese word "nyami" was
eventually shortened to the word
"yam."
When the orange-fleshed,
Puerto Rican variety of sweet
potatoes was adopted by Louisi-
ana producers and shippers, they
called them "American yams" to
distinguish them from the white-
fleshed sweet potatoes grown in
other parts of the country.
George Washington, the
first U.S. President, was a sweet
potato farmer before becoming
president.
In 1910, the U.S. Census
Bureau's agricultural statistics


showed that there were more
than 55,000 acres planted with
sweet potatoes in the state of
Louisiana. In 2004 there are ap-
proximately 20,000 acres of sweet
potatoes planted in Louisiana.
George Washington Carver
was an African-American man
born in Missouri in 1864. He stud-
ied farming and nutrition, and he
began to think of new ways that
poor black farmers could earn
more money. He recommended
planting sweet potatoes and pea-
nuts in soil that was worn out
from growing cotton. When the
farmers tried this, they discovered
that these new crops could grow
very well in that kind of soil. Carv-
er worked to create new uses for
peanuts and sweet potatoes. He
made 300 different new prod-
ucts from peanuts and about 100
new products from sweet pota-
toes. Flour, ink, starch, synthetic
rubber, tapioca, vinegar, a type
of glue for postage stamps and
500 shades of textile dye were all
made from sweet potatoes.
A bad crop of cotton turned
farmers in south Louisiana to
sweet potatoes as a cash crop in
the 1930's. This marks the most
significant period of increased
popularity of sweet potatoes as
the Louisiana product became
known in the nation's markets.
In the 1943, 124,000 acres of
sweet potatoes were harvested in
Louisiana alone. At that time, 21.7
pounds of sweet potatoes were
consumed per capital annually. In
2004 only 98,000 acres of sweet
potatoes are grown nationwide,
with the average person consum-
ing approximately 4.2 pounds
annually. In 2004, 20,000 acres
of sweet potatoes were planted
in Louisiana. Louisiana.produces
20.3 percent of the annual US
production of sweet potatoes.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise rou-
tine, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
drugs. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."

More than 40 people caught being kind


By Denise Hatton
On Saturday, Oct. 27, at the Fall
Festival sponsored by the city of
Clewiston, the Clewiston Chris-
tian School RAK
Club caughtover
40 people doing
good deeds and
showing kind-
ness to others.
Some random
acts of kindness
included parents helping other
children to play games, volunteers
operating booths and handing


out prizes, guests complimenting
displays, children sharing, taking
turns and helping others.
Some of the local residents
"Caught Being Kind" were DJ
Jackson, Melissa Ausherman, Ce-
lene Nickel, Sherry Dozie, Arai Vil-
latoro, Charles Nicinski, Kyla Bal-
donado, Kacie Pittman and Grant
Polhill. Even Dr Robert Egley (rep-
resenting the Rotary Club) was
caught offering snow cones to
Fall Festival guests. With so much
goodness in the air, it is easy to
see why our community is a great


place to reside and raise our chil-
dren, and a wonderful place for
community fellowship as well.
Over 40 good deeds were
praised by the Random Acts of
Kindness Club (RAK Club) of the
Clewiston Christian School.
The RAK Club was recently
formed under the direction of
Mrs. Denise Hatton to honor and
practice the teachings of Christ.
Throughout the festival, actions of
love, peace, kindness, gentleness,
etc. were identified and rewarded
by RAK Club students from Clew-


iston Christian School. Children
received goodie bags and the
adults were given a rose, each
item included a card with further
suggestions for spreading kind-
ness in the community. The CCS
RAK Club desires to create annual
traditions of giving and helping,
and will design fun and creative
ways to inspire and praise others
for their random acts of kindness.
Beef 'O' Brady's of Clewiston is
the official sponsor of the Ran-
dom Acts of Kindness Club of the
Clewiston Christian School.

Smokers in the United States urged to quit


CLEWISTON The Ameri-
can Cancer Society will celebrate
the 31st anniversary of the Great
American" Smoke out" on Thurs-
day, Nov. 15. With exactly half of
the United States now protected
by smoke-free laws and a variety
of cessation resources available,
there has never been a better time
to quit smoking and enjoy the
health benefits.
On Nov. 15, Americans who
smoke and want to quit to are
urged to call the American Cancer
Society's Quitline, a clinically
proven, free telephone-based
counseling program, at 1-800-ACS-
2345, or to log on to www.cancer.
org/greatamericans, to embark
on a personal plan to quit.
"The American Cancer Society
is here to help smokers who want
to quit, and we have an abun-,
+ dance of resources to assist. \'e
urge smokers to learn more about
quitting and make a plan to begin
a smoke-free life by calling the
Society's Quitline at 1-800-ACS-
2345," said David McClusky 2008
event chair for Relay for Life
The Society's Quitline is a
clinically proven, free telephone-
based counseling program that
is available in 12 states and the
District of Columbia as well as
in more than 75 businesses and
health plans nationwide. Quitline
staff have provided support to
more than 280,000 smokers since
its inception in 2000. Studies have
shown that more than 40 percent
of people who were contacted six
months after completing the Quit-
line program remained smoke-
free, which puts the Society's quit
rates among the highest in the
industry.
The Great American "Smoke
out" Web site (www.cancer.
org/greatamericans) will feature
new desktop helpers, including
a Quit Clock and a Craving Stop-
per. These tools will be available
by Nov. 1 and can be downloaded
to a computer desktop to help
smokers pick a quit day, prepare
for quitting, and offer support dur-
ing and after quitting. In addition,
the site will continue to provide
tips, tools, and resources, as well
as the successful Quitline call back
feature, which allows smokers to


submit a short form to be directly
contacted by a trained specialist
who will provide assistance dur-
ing a quit attempt.
According to the U.S. Surgeon
General in 1990, people who quit
smoking, regardless of age, live
longer than people who continue
to smoke, and quitting smoking
substantially decreases the risk of
lung, laryngeal, esophageal, oral,
pancreatic, bladder, and cervical
cancers.
In addition to encouraging
smokers to make a plan to quit,
the Great American Smokeout is
a.day for Americans to join the
American Cancer Society and its
sister advocacy organization, the
American Cancer Society Cancer
Action NetworkSM (ACS CAN)
in their efforts to advocate for
smoke-free laws in communities
riation.'ide. The..,combination
of smoke-free communities and
smoking cessation support is criti-
cal to helping smokers quit and
stay tobacco-free.
"With exactly half of country
now protected by smoke-free


laws, the lifesaving results of
comprehensive tobacco control
efforts in the United States are
clear," added Mr. McClusky "By
continuing efforts to reduce expo-
sure to toxic secondhand smoke,
and helping more Americans quit
smoking. We will continue to
make progress against cancer."
The American Cancer Society
Great American Smokeout grew
out of a 1971 event in Randolph,
Mass., in which Arthur P. Mul-
laney asked people to give up
cigarettes for a day and donate
the money they would have spent
on cigarettes to a high school
scholarship fund. In 1974, Lynn
R. Smith, editor of the Monticello
Times in Minnesota, spearheaded
the state's first D-Day, or Don't
Smoke Day. The idea caught on,
and on Nov. 18,. 1976, the Cali-
fornia Division of the American
Cancer Society succeeded in get-
ting nearly one million smokers
to quit for the day. That Califor-
nia event marked the first Great
American Smokeout, which went
nationwide the next year.

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 foi 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-
lai'an'd` n idictl complidatioii'6f diabetes. -Please call our officdat _+
(863) 675-0761 for mo1e inro riis.ion or -toe set-up, and appohin sj
ment.

corn which had been thrown out
the night before.
I slipped in the house as quiet-
ly and quickly as possible heading
straight for the kitchen window
where I could see out, but could
not be seen.
Just in time. The ancient bird-
bath situated between a group of
old knarled oaks and pines was
moving, appearing to be sway-
ing back and forth. I could not
help but think my sanity was on
the way out! Then I ran to a closer
window on the first floor and kept
looking.
Well, the birdbath itself, being
made of heavy concrete, was not
moving; of course, but its visitors
were. Time after time dark sau-
cer-size objects fell straight down
from the lowest limbs landing
mostly on the wide rim of the
bowl, and all around the bowl
there was what appeared to be
scallops of white lace. There's a
small statue of
St. Jude in the middle so natu-
rally no water could be seen.
By this time what could be seen
were white wing doves, their tail
feathers and wings spread out like
fans, all edged with white. Their
overall color of dove-gray blended
right in with' the old weathered
concrete. St. Jude was completely
surrounded by the doves.
I could not help but think that
he St. Jude was living up to
his
Sainthood as being the Patron
Saint Of All Things Impossible.

The 2007-2008 Red Ribbon Week Award winners for volunteer services were selected

West Glades enjoys Book Week


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Reading is the art of interpret-
ing printed and written words. It
is a basic tool of education and
one of the most important skills in
everyday life. We live in a world
of printed words. Through read-
ing we acquire new ideas, obtain
needed information, and broaden
our interests. All these achieve-
ments can lead to a happier and
more successful life.
It's now in progress, having
begun this past Monday, Nov. 12,

can Pastime" when students wore
traditional red, white and blue. It


was a great day for all the students
especially those who managed to
wear more red, white, and blue
than some others.
Tuesday, Nov. 13 was "T-Shirt
Day," this being the day when stu-
dents celebrated their mascot, the
Panther, by wearing Panther
T-Shirts and reading books
with panther characters.
The following day was "Be
Cool At School," so students wore
sunglasses indicating that they are
bright readers.
Today, Nov. 15, the theme is
"Camp Out With A Good Book"
and the dress code is camouflage
clothing --anything and every-
thing goes as long as it's "camou-
flage."
Tomorrow, Nov. 16, is the high-
light of the week with the theme


being "Dress the Part With All
Your Heart."'This is the day that
students will dress as their fa-
vorite book character, like maybe
"Scarlet" in Gone With The Wind,
or "Cracker" in Cracker's Mule (A
Blind Mule Teaches a Boy To See),
or Tom Sawyer.
West Glades School is dedi-
cated to reading in every subject,
every class. The classic old saying
"Reading is Learning" is a para-
mount part of the curriculum of
West Glades.
"Within reason," says Prin-
cipal Debra Davis, "The Glades
County
Dress Code will be relaxed
Thursday and Friday, Nov. 15 and
Nov. 16 during Children's Book
Week Celebration.

Bronson urges caution on fair rides Tour


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is reminding consumers that
the majority of fair ride accidents
-- are caused by patron error, ac-
cording to recent statistics. With
the fall fair season now under
way, Bronson is urging people to
heed safety regulations.
The Department's Bureau of
Fair Rides Inspection is respon-
sible for inspecting amusement
rides at temporary events (fairs,
carnivals and festivals) and per-
manent amusement facilities
(go-kart parks and water parks)
for structural and operational in-
tegrity. All traveling amusement
ri~es are permitted once a year,
but each amusement ride must
be inspected each time it is set up


and must pass inspection prior to
being open to the public. Rides
at permanent amusement fa-
cilities are inspected and permit-
ted twice each year. Florida has
about 188 permanent amusement
parks and more than 183 travel-
ing amusement companies. The
Department's 15 ride inspectors
performed over 10,000 amuse-
ment ride inspections in Florida
last year.
Statistics show that historically,
patron error accounted for an av-
erage of 76 percent of all accidents
reported. The remaining 24 per-
cent were mechanically related or
the cause was undetermined. In
addition, since 1997, the number
of rides that failed the bureau's
first inspection has dropped
frotn approximately 60 percent


to about 44 percent. Bronson
believes the ride owners and op-
erators are doing a better job of
assembling, inspecting and main-
taining the rides as a result of the
stringent inspection requirements
and scrutiny of the Department's
inspection program.
"Our inspectors go to great
lengths to ensure the rides are as-
sembled properly, in good work-
ing order and are safe," Bronson
said. "But ride patrons also need
to be responsible and follow the
rules and regulations to prevent
accidents."
Ride patrons 'should, always
observe cautionary instructions
and cOnsider physical limitations
when riding any amusement ride.
They should also pay special at-
tention to size or age restrictions


for children to ride on certain
rides.
Ride inspectors receive refresh-
er training at least twice each year
to keep up to date on the latest
inspection techniques, manufac-
turers' bulletins and safety alerts.
Department inspectors utilize
laptop computers in the field as
a resource to verify ride informa-
tion on expiration of permits and
insurance and inspection history.
They use a comprehensive 26-
point checklist to inspect carnival
rides from top to bottom to en-
sure maximum public safety.
Fairs in Florida traditionally
kick off during the fall season,
and Bronson says now is the time

ties. According to John Scher-
lacker and others, a tourism tax
should be established before
lodging is built or else Glades
County may miss the boat when
it comes to tourism dollars.
Tracy Whirls reported that a
two percent tax rate that targets.
tourism will have an option to go
back later and add one percent.
The local Tourism Development
Council and a tourism tax are not
in effect yet, and their existence
depends on local government
guidelines and paperwork. Later
in August this must be decided
on by voters.
The next committee meet-
ing for TDC will be Dec. 3 in the
Glades Electric Co-op conference
room at 4 p.m. Contact Tracy
Whirls at (863) 946-0300, e-mail

Another separate, but related
meeting was held on Nov. 8 in-
volving the issues of tourism
businesses. The Hendry/Glades
County Tourism Summit met at
the Doyle Conner Building. It was
promoted by the Small Business
Development Center (SBDC) of
Florida Gulf Coast University and
the GCEDC.
Patty Register, Gatorama pro-
prietor, shared her experience


about a motorcoach tour out of
Lee County. It gave tourists an
eclectic taste of of rural south-
west Florida. The tour covered at-
tractions at Palmdale's Gatorama,
a LaBelle honey store, and desti-
nations in Felda and Immokalee.
She told the suimmitiI pirticipan;i
that she has learned some visitors
from the midwest had agriculture
and outdoor experience. They
were eager to see examples of lo-
cal agri-businesses.
An SBDC certified business
analyst, Sean Moore, was a fea-
tured speaker at the summit. One
theme he spoke about was how
businesses can work together
as one rather that against each
other.
"It is important that residents
and business owners in Hen-
dry/Glades counties get past the
old idea that they are competing
against each other. The reality is
that they are competing against
Fort Myers, Palm Beach and Or-
lando. If they work together to
keep people here and enjoy what
we have, then regardless of these
other cities everyone in Hendry/
Glades counties will come out
ahead," said Mr. Moore.
The next Hendry/Glades Coun-
ty Tourism Summit will be Jan.
17 in the Doyle Conner Building.

Brahmans outclass Tigers, 48-20

By Jeff Barwick


The Tigers' visit to Okeechobee
to wind up regular season play
found them running into a twin-
bladed buzz saw in Brahmans
tailback Lonnie Pryor and quar-
terback Garrett Madrigal. On the
night, Pryor rushed for 248 yards
and Madrigal completed 10 of
13 passes for a whopping 256
yards. Both teams
are headed to
the playoffs
as runners-up
in their dis- -
tricts with the "-.-
Tigers hosting
the Bishop Verot Vikings
Friday night at Cane Field. The
Brahmans travel to West Palm
Beach to face Dwyer.
Okeechobee scored late in
the opening period when Pryor
shook loose and raced 87 yards.
The Brahmans got on the board
again early in the second period
when Madrigal hit wide receiver
LeShawn Henderson in the flats
and he dodged Tiger defenders
and scored on a 56 yard play. The
Tigers finally got going late in the
first half when Okeechobee went
for a fourth and short near mid-
field. Pryor was hit in the back-
field and linebacker Alex Rubio
stripped the ball and trotted 50
yards for the score. Going to the
lockers at half and trailing 14-7,
the Tigers were not out of the
game.
But, Okeechobee's third quar-
ter performance was a display of
+ powerhouse football with a bal-
anced running and passing game
and a tough defense. The period

saw Madrigal connect on scoring
passes of 69 yards to Henderson
and 26 yards to flanker Nate Pol-
lard. Sandwiched in between
for scores were a 57-yard run by
Pryor and a 33-yard interception
return by Henderson.
The Tigers, although out
manned and out gunned, didn't
quit. They kept finding spurts of of-
fense, mostly behind the running
of senior tailback Colin Ricketts
who kept getting good chunks of
yardage behind sporadic block-
ing. His long run of the night was

exchanged scores in the final pe-

a 4-yard sweep by Ricketts and
Pryor scoring on a 14 yard run.
The Brahmans finished 7-3
and that matched their best re-
cord going back to 1991. The
Tigers ended regular season 4-6
as they swept their district rivals
but could not manage a win in
tougher non-district play.
The Tigers entered the contest
banged up and worn out. Their

tackles and a couple of assists.
Defensive end Willie Armstrong
also made a solid contribution, as
did linebacker Alex Rubio..
The Tigers will have their work
cut out in the first round of district
playoffs. The Vikings have a win-
ning season and have a potent
throwing game, which is one of
the Tigers weak spots. Offensive-
ly, the Tigers have been unable
to get any sort of passing attack
going to complement their solid
running attack. Dropped passes
and errant throws have been the
downfall and they need to start
clicking in this department if they
have any chance of going very far
in the playoffs.

Thursday, November 15, 2007 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee RELIGION 15


There are two classes of people newszap.com


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Today I would like to talk to
you about two classes of people.
First: Those who are not grate-
ful to God.
The atheist does not thank
God. A man does not give thanks
to the God in whom he does not
believe. It has been said, "There
are no grateful atheists."
The skeptic or agnostic does
not thank God. This is a person
who does not deny that God ex-
ists, but is skeptical about His
existence. That person who is un-
sure in his own heart about the
existence of God would not be
expected to thank God.
The forgetful person will not
thank God. Thanking God de-
mands remembering. Parents
are often heard to tell their chil-
dren, "Remember to say thanks."
When one forgets God's bless-


ings, then he cannot be grateful
for those blessings.
The one who feels self-suffi-
cient will not be grateful to God.
One man asked why he should
thank God for the food on his ta-
ble, when he worked hard to put
it there. Unfortunately, he failed
to recognize his dependence
upon God.
The greedy person will not be
grateful to God for his blessings.
He is too consumed with what he
wants to be grateful for what he
has. Paul warns of this danger in I
Timothy 6:9-10.
The envious person will not
be grateful. This individual is too
busy coveting what another has
to be thankful. Envy is called "the
rottenness of the bones" (Prov-
erbs 14:30).
Second: Those who will be
thankful to God.
Grateful people have a strong
belief in God. The Patriarchs Abra-


ham, Isaac, and Jacob were men
of great faith and full of thanks-
giving. A strong faith in God today
causes Christians to thank God.
Grateful people feel depen-
dent upon God. It is easy to be
thankful when we remember
just how totally dependent upon
God we are. Man has properly no
room for pride or self-sufficiency
since every blessing, physical or
spiritual comes from God (James
1:17).
Grateful people remember
what God has done for them.
Only one of the ten lepers re-
membered his healing and re-
turned to say thanks. To the Phi-
lippians Paul wrote, "I thank my
God upon every remembrance of
you" (Philippians 1:3). Without
remembering there is no thanks-
giving.
Grateful people have hearts
filled with love. Just as pride,
greed and envy produce ingrati-


tude, so love produces thanksgiv-
ing. The more love we possess,
the more abundant our gratitude
will be.
Grateful people- take time to
say thanks. An expression of grat-
itude may not consume much
time, but it demands some. These
who thank God take time to give
thanks.
Grateful people find a blessing
in every event of life for which to
be thankful. After Matthew Henry
was robbed he wrote the follow-
ing words in his diary: "Let me be
thankful first because I was never
robbed before; second, because,
although they took my purse,
they did not take my life: third,
because although they took my
all, it was not much; and fourth,
because it was I who was robbed,
not I who robbed."
Which are you grateful or un-
grateful?


Football's twelfth man on the team


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Here's a quick sports quiz for
you: "How many men play on
each side in a
football game?"
If you came up
with eleven,
you are right if
it's the visiting
team. But if it's
the home team :-~, .
with the support .' S
of fans, there are John
twelve players Hicks
on the team.
You won't find the twelfth
man anywhere on the field. The
twelfth man is all those noisy fans
cheering for the home team, try-
ing to demoralize the opponents,
and to keep them from hearing
the quarterbacks' count.
In sports, these fans are literally
known as the twelfth man. They
are a big reason why teams like
to play at home. The twelfth man
is a big part of the home field ad-
vantage. These supporters never
go on the field, but their influence
is felt by every player there.


In the seventeenth chapter of
the book of Exodus, you will find
the account of two groups com-
ing together on a different field of
battle. Moses sends Joshua out
to fight the Amalekites who am-
bushed them. Moses tells them,
"'I will stand on top of the hill with
the staff of God in my hands." As
long as Moses held up his hands,
the Israelites had the advantage,
but whenever his hands lowered,
the Amalekites started winning.
When Moses' arms grew tired,
two friends, Aaron and Hur, held
his hands up--one on one side,
one on the other--so that Moses'
hands remained steady till sunset,
and the Israelites won.
Moses built an altar and called
it, "The Lord is my banner", for
hands were lifted up to the throne
of God.
Hands were lifted up to the
throne of God. That's what Moses
was doing on the hill. He was fer-
vently praying for God's warriors
and probably against the enemies
of God's soldiers. Moses, was in-
terceding on the hill; bringing
the need and the battle into the


throne room of God Almighty.
Moses was like that twelfth
man in football. He never set foot
on the battlefield, but what he
was doing was felt by every per-
son in the battle.
For me, this is one of the most
revealing passages in the Bible as
to actually praying for someone
and praying against what the en-
emy is trying to do in their lives.
Literally, when we are faithfully
interceding for someone, they
win; when we stop praying, they
stop winning.
Sometimes people say, "Well,
I guess I can pray." as if praying
was a last resort. The reality is
that there is no more powerful or
decisive position we can play on
God's team than that of being a
prayer warrior. And that position
can be played close by, far away,
from a hospital bed, or from a
bed at home.,
Time and time again I have felt
the flooding power and presence
of God in situations when I was
in need, strengthening me in my
weakness, healing me in my af-
flictions, lifting me up in my fall-


ing down.
That's the power that prayer
can give. People who promised
to pray for me were prompted by
the Holy Spirit to do so and they
made a difference in my situa-
tion.
As you support God's home
team from the stands of prayer,
get excited about the decisive
position you're playing. The vic-
tories are ultimately not just won
by the warriors on the field but by
that prayer warrior on the hill.

Part of a body or an isolated outpost: Church meetings


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Schedules seem punctuated
by meetings; many of them being
out-of-town when we live away
from major pop-
ulation centers. I- l
More often than
not, they can be
interruptions but "j
at the same time
there are real
reasons for shar-
ing in them.
Recently, I Samuel S.
spent four hours Thomas
in travel for a
meeting that lasted two hours;
and part of that time was "rehash-
ing" a convention recently attend-

Church News

in Brief

Church to host
Thanksgiving feast
.Come and join others in a
free Thanksgiving Day dinner on
Thursday, Nov. 22, beginning at
11:30 a.m. at First United Meth-
odist Church of Clewiston. In-
vite friends and neighbors, we
will even send you home with
leftovers! Come and enjoy fun,
food, and fellowship! There is
no charge, but we will have a
basket available for donations to
the community food bank. Call
(863) 983-5269 for more informa-
tion. Volunteers to help cook and
serve are welcome!


ed in Miami. That meeting only
involved three hours of travel on
the road. One day, not too long
ago, six hours were spent going
to and from a community on the
Treasure Coast for a two-hour
presence and small ceremony.
I noticed that many of those
from the coast seem to fail to
show up when we host regional
meetings or special events. Or-
dinarily, there are about twice as
many in attendance when I travel
to meetings versus when others
have to come here. A question
that was put to me quite simply
"Why, then, do you do it?" While
attending meetings in larger cen-
ters, I reconcile myself to spend-
ing a day for a meeting while
others may only have to spend a
half-day; their trips to and from


home are shorter and they're al-
ways closer to one another. I have
learned to "piggyback" other ac-
tivities on my trips.
The other day, after a church
meeting was completed, we went
Christmas shopping to buy things
that will have to be mailed early.
The real reason, though, has to
do with something Saint Paul
wrote about. It has to do with be-
ing part of a body. The Church I
serve is not an isolated outpost;
it is part of a larger body. Paul
told the Corinthians "The body is
a unit; and though all of its parts
are many, they form one body (1
Corinthians 12:12)."
I continue to be part of that
body even when it is tempting
to stay at home or when I think
a distant meeting will be a waste


of time. It is being part of a family
and having my share in the direc-
tion; being part of a fellowship
and taking my place among oth-
ers with whom we share a special
place together.
Over the years, I've visited
many people who have lived
alone. They do not have the
same accountability as persons
who live with a partner and who
are more likely to let things (and
themselves, sometimes) go. They
are more likely to have "unusual"
ideas when there is nobody to
include in their thinking, more
likely to get lax on some of the
things needed when we live to-
gether. John Donne picked up on
Saint Paul's idea about the impor-
tance of being a body when he
wrote "No man is an island" 1600


years after Paul wrote it. It is in
our interactions with others that
we have our own identity shaped
and affirmed and where we have
a special gift to offer others while
receiving it ourselves. I find in my
trips to visit other churches and
clergy that I have something to
offer about life in my own com-
munity and also have something
to learn from them, too.
Churches can be like individu-
als; existing alone and without
contact with others can produce
strains and lead to being a bit too
self-centered at times.
The Lord sent His disciples
to the far corners of the Earth,
but they could go because they
were part of a special body and
special family. Paul concludes
his thoughts about the body by


saying "Now you are the body of
Christ and each of you is a part of
it ( 1 Corinthians 12 v. 27)." That
makes all of the traveling and all
of the hours on the road worth-
while. It's too easy to become iso-
lated or detached; too easy to get
ignored or lost. Each time I am
away, there is something to bring
home, something to report, and
something to tell.
Each time I am reminded
about my place, our church's
place in the larger body and we
are reaffirmed by it all. In reality,
it is the reaffirmation of our place,
my place in the Body of Our Lord
here on Earth; that wider fellow-
ship that makes it up. Being part
of that body-what could be more
important?


Should parents focus on rules or their own example?


By Pastor Brian Hamrick
When we think about influenc-
ing our children rightly, which is
more helpful? Giving them rules,
or setting an example? It is true
that we need not choose com-
pletely between one or the other,
but which one is more compel-
ling?
Parents may be fooled into
thinking "do this, don't do that"
will suffice. Lay down the law,
and children will follow. But let
us not forget our children are sin-
ful by nature, as we are. They are
thinking to themselves when we
give such guidance, "Is that really
the Way it is?"
Parents will find that they will
have greater influence through
their own personal example. It
is here that we will find there is


something persuasive, something
that informs long before rules can
establish authority.
So what should our example
toward our children be? Affec-
tionate with our kids. Consistent.
They must not witness in us un-
kindness, unfriendliness, or over-
bearing qualities, or their conduct
will be affected negatively. Chil-
dren must see in us parents who
redeem the time, who work hard,
choose their friends carefully,
avoid sinful pleasures, and guard
their tongues.
These things are also critical to
think about when we think about
the church. Many well-meaning
parents will drop off their kids for
church because their kids may
want to go, but the parent would
really want rest, free time, or time


I I W 16. -


to catch up on errands. But since
children are constantly study-
ing the example of their parents,
should we not abandon such
thinking altogether? Why preach
our children (through our actions)
two contradictory sermons? Do
we neglect regular worship and


demonstrate that we are con-
formed to the world? If so, then let
us not be surprised to raise kids
of the same persuasion, lest we
change our ways. If we are care-
less toward the things of God, let
us not blame our churches or pas-
tors if our kids turn out the same


way. The example of a parent is
powerful, indeed. Thank God,
he gives strength and grace to all
who seek Him in Christ Jesus.
May the words of an old say-
ing both warn and encourage the
parents of this age, "Be what you
wish your child to be."

Sub Prime Lending Struggles Create



HUGE Savings for Car Buyers


As Little as a $99/month!

Moore Haven, FL National news agencies have been reporting for weeks about the latest stock market troubles and its ties to the
failing sub prime lending market. This has created a huge supply of vehicles due to recent repossessions and the many trade-ins gen-
erated due to downsizing car payments.


In many cases, this inventory is acquired at thousands below book value. Banks and lenders are highly motivated to liquidate this inven-
tory and Executive Cars, Inc. is passing this savings on to the general public at their Moore Haven Tent Sale.


"The situation in the sub prime banking sector is serious. Home and car loans are defaulting at an alarming rate, and although
this is unfortunate, it has created a MASSIVE savings opportunity fr all prospective car buyers"


Every vehicle in inventory will be clearly marked with its drastically low cred price or payment. Bank representatives will be avail-
able to assist all buyers during this very special event. Even those buyers whose credit may have been damaged in the past will have
an opportunity to take advantage of this incredible market condition. A stable job and residence is all that is required to begin pro-
cess of any transaction.


"I have never seen anything like this. With rising gas prices and a sluggish economy, a great many vehicles have been traded to
reduce payments and unfortunately others have simply been returned to the lender" David Ray Event Manager


Sale begins Tuesday, November 13th and ends Sunday, November 18th. Payments as low as $99/month* will be made available dur-
ing this limited event.


"We have contacted all our lenders and requested they extend their operating hours to assist in this incredible' event. Millions of
dollars have been made available for immediate loan processing."


The Moore Haven Tent Sale will be fully staffed during the event hours as attendance is expected to be in record breaking numbers.
As with most special sales, the selection will diminish throughout the event so come early to take full advantage of the entire inven-
tory available.


The Moore Haven Tent Sale is located at 499 US Highway 27, near Beck's Food Store, in Moore ITa\ ci, Florida. Please call for an advance ap-
pointment at 888-673-7259.

This event is sponsored by Executive Cars, Inc., Leesburg, FL and/or First Financial, Inc.
"2004 Dodge Stratus, stk# PT'l 122, Salc price $9500. $.3500 down or trade equity, $99/mo, with approved credit. 72 months term, plus tax. title, and license fees. Sec dealer lor details.

FOR DISASTER RECOVERY FUNDING APPLICATION
Glades County recently applied for Supplemental Hurricane Wilma funding in the amount of
$128,947.37 provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to assist
the state of Florida in recovering from effects of the 2005 Hurricanes Katrina and Wilma. This fund-
ing will be administered by the Florida Department of Community Affairs (DCA) and can only be
used for selected activities that are directly related to the disasters. Activities that are typically eligi-
ble for funding under the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program are eligible proj-
ects if no other funding is available to meet the need.

Glades County intends to fund the following projects:

Activity Activity Name Accomplishments Amount
Number
21A Program Administration N/A $3,947.37
12 Replacement Housing 1 $120,000.00
08 Temporary Relocation 1 $5,000.00
TOTAL $128,947.37*

*Includes Activity Delivery Costs

It is proposed that all of the housing related activities will be on homes damaged by the recent hur-
ricanes. All housing activities are identified in the Hendry County Local Mitigation Strategy. There
are no other County funds available for these improvements.
Any resident wishing to know more about the proposed project should contact Ms. Erica Villafuerte,
Glades County S.H.I.P Director, Glades County Court House, 500 Avenue J Southwest, Moore
Haven or telephone 863-946-6004 as soon as possible. Comments from the public must be
received no later than 5:00 p.m. on Monday, November 26, 2007 which is at least seven days from
the date that this notice was first published. All comments received will be considered by Glades
County.
This funding will assist Glades County in recovering from the effects of the disasters. Only priority
projects for which there is no other source of funding can be paid for with these funds. Glades
County is an EEO employer.
