Curfew Ordinance at Public hearing


Youth 18 and
under face curfew
countywide

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
Glades County -- The coun-
ty meeting of Nov. 13 saw a
public hearing for the Glades
County Juvenile Curfew Ordi-
nance which was suggested by
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon. *
Chapter 877 of Florida Stat-
utes authorizes counties to
adopt an ordinance that estab-


lishes a curfew for minors and
Glades County is carefully con-
sidering the measure.
The curfew is intended to
protect minors from harm
and victimization, to uphold
the well-being and safety of
minors, and to decrease the
crime and violence committed
by some minors.
The ordinance would apply
to minors up to the age of 18,
and restrict them from being
on the streets, in public plac-
es or establishments from 11
p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday through
Thursday. The curfew hours for


evenings on Friday, Saturday,
and legal holidays will be from
12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m.
The ordinance includes re-
strictions on minors who have
been suspended or expelled
from school. These minors
may not remain in a public
place, in an establishment, or
within 1,000 feet of a school
during the hours of 9 a.m. to 2
p.m. on any school day.
The curfew ordinance has
been approved pending re-
search by Richard Pringle,
county attorney, in order to
study the wording of the state


statute and to see that it is
appropriate to the particular
needs of Glades County.
The document will be pre-
sented to the board upon com-
pletion.
Another issue on the agen-
da concerned the legislative
delegation meeting of Nov.
19. After much discussion and
counseling from county gov-
ernment lobbyists, the county
commissioners have approved
specific projects to be pre-
sented to state legislators at the
meeting.
The items and their values


are: Waste' water treatment
plant, $1.4 million, courthouse
restoration, $750,000; and
Glades County public health
building design and construc-
tion, $4.2 million.
In addition to these items the
following subjects will also be
addressed: Lake Okeechobee
access, gaming revenues, the
Muse water project and the Or-
tona hurricane shelter.
Over the last several months
Wendell Taylor, county man-
ager, and Richard Pringle, city
attorney, have been engaged in

Vehicle overturns
on C.R. 731

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrit
MUSE -- Florida Highway
Patrol officials report that a 4-
year-old child was killed in a
one vehicle roll over accident
on C.R. 731, five miles north
of C.R. 720 in the Muse area of
Glades County.
The incident took place on
Saturday morning, Nov. 17.
The driver, Timothy James
Allen, 21, was headed north
on the unpaved road when he
lost control and the car began
to fishtail.
The vehicle rotated counter-
clockwise as it entered a ditch
on the west side and over-
turned.


Tera Skipper, 4, was an unre-
strained passenger in the front
right seat, and she was ejected
when the vehicle rolled over,
according to officials with FHP.
As a result of her injuries,
Tera Skipper was pronounced
dead at the scene.
The driver was not wearing
a seat belt and received minor
injuries. A second passenger in
the rear left seat, Colton Skip-
per, 2, was wearing a seatbelt.
The press release did not
report any injuries to the two
year old.
Authorities will investigate if
the use of alcohol was a fac-
tor in the accident, according to
Corporal J. Rongish, FHP.
Charges may be pending.

GC sends Pearce
canal resolution
to SFWMD

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY- On Nov.
13 the board of county commis-
sioners approved a resolution
requesting South Florida Water
Management District to clean
and maintain the Pearce Canal
as a a safe and navigable sys-
tem that reaches the big lake.
For the past year the drought


and competition for water in
south Florida has left Glades
County communities without
access to Lake Okeechobee.
This has had a detrimental
impact on local business and
property owners.
Buckhead Ridge residents
felt that their fishing commu-
nity and neighborhood canal
system were especially crippled
by the rock bottom level of the
Pearce Canal water.
Most of the homes have
a canal access right in their
backyards, or have access to a

class made the door look like
their favorite class book. The
guidelines for decorating asked


for the title of the book, the au-

Local family sets out on Santa run to Wounded Knee


By Betty Luckey
"Christmas for Wounded
Knee" is a project to collect toys
+ for children and winter jackets
for all ages for Pine Ridge Indian
Reservation in South Dakota.
Pastor Stan Hollow-Horn of the
Wounded Knee mission has been
concerned that there were no
provisions to share with the tribal
members who Will attend their
annual Christmas dinner Dec. 23.
This holiday event is the only op-
portunity children have during the


year in which to receive a toy, and
this year, there are no toys avail-
able. Hollow-Horn also stated that
even the men are lacking jackets
warm' enough for the winter cold
and are frequently seen outside in
only shirts.
Wounded Knee is the poorest
community within the poorest
reservation in the country. The sui-
cide rate is the highest in the USA
and the life expectancy for men is
46 and low 50's for women.
The Wounded Knee mission
will use the unfinished build-


ing they built next door for the
Christmas party and utilize space
heaters to warm the facility. There
have been no funds with which
to finish construction but the roof
and floors are completed with
hopes to have a kitchen and rest-
rooms in the future.
The Luckey family from the
Lake Placid area is collecting
items for the people and will lead
a caravan from south central Flor-
ida of horse trailers filled with toys
and jackets. The group will bring
their band. and play Christmas


music, help with the dinner, and
distribute the gifts.

Alico Inc. reports its fourth quarter and annual earnings


LABELLE Alico, Inc. an-
nounced a net loss for the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2007 of $7.4
million, or $1.02 per share, com-
pared with net earnings of $109
thousand, or $0.02 per share, dur-
ing the fourth quarter of fiscal year
2006. For the year ended August
31, 2007, the Company reported a
net loss of $13.8 million, or $1.88
per share. This compares with
net earnings of $6.5 million, or
$0.88 per share, during the fiscal
year ended August 31, 2006. 2007
fourth quarter and annual losses
were attributable to the accrual of
additional taxes of approximately
$5.9 million, or $0.80 per share,
and $26.2 million, or $3.56 per
share, for the fourth quarter and
fiscal year, respectively, related to
IRS audits of the Company's tax
returns for tax years 2000 2004.
Income before taxes was $19.4
,million in fiscal year 2007 com-
pared with $12.7 million in fiscal
year 2006.
Operating revenues during the
fourth quarter of fiscal year 2007
totaled $9.1 million compared
with $14.6 million for the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2006. Op-
erating revenues for fiscal year
2007 were $134.8 million com-
pared with $77.4 million for fis-
.cal year 2006. The increase was
primarily due to increased oper-
*ating revenues from agricultural


operations.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer, noted,
"The Company's earnings from
operations improved significantly
in fiscal year 2007 compared
with fiscal year 2006, as did pre-
tax income. The increased pretax
profit was mostly attributable to
increased citrus earnings. How-
ever, the impact of the tax accrual
was significant enough to turn
what would have been a banner
year into a loss. In spite of this, I
remain optimistic about the Com-
pany and look forward to putting
this tax matter behind us."
Addressing the highlights of
the divisional results, Mr. Alexan-
der noted that:
The Company's Bowen
Brothers subsidiary reported
operating profits of $0.9 million
during fiscal year 2007 compared
with a loss of $0.3 million during
fiscal year 2006, while the Citrus
Division reported operating profits
of $24.1 million during fiscal year
2007, compared with $7.6 million
for fiscal year 2006. The increased
profitability for these two divisions
in fiscal year 2007 was due to im-
proved citrus prices caused by a
reduced supply of Florida citrus
during fiscal year 2007 compared
with fiscal year 2006;
Operating profits for the Sug-
arcane Division were $0.6 million

during fiscal year 2007 compared
with $0.4 million during fiscal
year 2006. The fiscal year 2007
increase was due to a larger sug-
arcane harvest for the Company
in fiscal year 2007 compared with
fiscal year 2006;.
Operating profits for the
Ranch Division were $0.3 million
for fiscal year 2007 compared
with $0.8 million for fiscal year
2006. The decrease was due to
higher,costs of raising calves for
sale, a reduction in the number
of calves born because of stress
to the cattle herd from hurricanes,
and a prolonged drought;
Operating profits for the Veg-
etable Division were $0.5 million
for fiscal year 2007 compared
with $1.0 million for fiscal year
2006. Prices for sweet corn were
lower in fiscal year 2007 than in
fiscal year 2006;
Operating profits for Alico
Plant World were $17 thousand
for fiscal year ,2007 compared
with a loss of $1.1 million in fiscal
year 2006. Plant World serves as
an ancillary operation to Alico's
vegetable operations providing
transplants, although the majority
of its business is with third parties.
The Company continues to take
measures including customer
evaluations, staff reductions and
other cost cutting measures in ef-
forts to improve the profitability of


this segment;
Operating profits for the Sod
Division were $0.9 million for fis-
cal year 2007 compared with $0.7
million in fiscal year 2006. During
fiscal year 2007, the Company in-
creased its harvest of native sod
from cattle pastures, leading to
increased profitability for the divi-
sion; and
General and administrative
expenses were $13.5 million in
fiscal year 2007 compared with

$11.8 million in fiscal year 2006.
Increased regulatory compliance
costs and legal fees related to on-
going IRS audits were the largest
components of the increase.
Management expects contin-
ued profitability from the Compa-
ny's agricultural operations dur-
ing fiscal 2008 but at lower overall
levels than experienced in fiscal
year 2007, mostly due to expected
lower citrus prices resulting from
a larger Florida crop in fiscal year
2008.
At its Board of Directors meet-
ing on Sept. 28, 2007, the Board
adopted a new fiscal year end-
ing September 30. Alico plans to
release its earnings after market
close on the following dates for
the fiscal year ending Sept. 30,
2008:
First quarter 2/11/08, Second
quarter 5/12/08, Third quarter -
8/11/08, Fourth quarter 12/15/08

Broadband

feasibility

study opens
Florida Heartland REDI, Inc.
(FHREDI) completed a regional
broadband study in the spring of
2007. The study concluded that
Florida's Heartland is a strong
candidate for the launch of a Ru-
ral ISP (RISP).
Jerry and Deanna Pollard of
VistaNet are in the first phase of
deploying a wireless broadband
network in Hardee, Highlands
and Okeechobee Counties. Their
plans are to extend the wireless
network from coast to coast and
deep into the Heartland Region.
Jerry and Deanna Pollard report,
"The feasibility study was a tre-
mendous help in making this
deployment of wireless broad-
band a reality." Jerry describes
the study as a valuable tool in his
decision making process. Accord-
ing to VistaNet staff, "phones are
ringing off the hook! We have a
waiting list a mile long of people
wanting to sign up for the ser-
vice."
The support for this valuable
study was provided by the Gov-
ernors Office of Tourism, Trade,
and Economic Development and
Enterprise Florida. "The Office of
Tourism, Trade, and Economic
Development was very pleased
to provide assistance to the de-
velopment of the Study that
laid the foundation for this an-
nouncement." said Mary Helen
Blakeslee, Chief Analyst. "We are
very aware of the critical need
for reliable, high speed internet
access in rural communities and
believe this is a good step in the
right direction."
"We are delighted that a local
vendor has recognized the oppor-
tunity and is providing the service.
Reliable access .to Broadband
will begin to change the region
and offer many opportunities in
business and personal lifestyle
enhancement," says Lynn Topel,
Executive Director of FHREDI.

infrastructure is the first step in
building a strong economy and

KEY LARGO In response to
a wet season that did little to alle-
viate the ongoing water shortage,
South Florida Water Management
District staff Nov. 14 recommend-
ed that the District Governing
Board move to increase water
restrictions at their next monthly
meeting on Dec. 13. Staff recom-
mendations included limiting
lawn irrigation to one day a week
and setting lower water use goals
for agriculture, golf courses and
nurseries.
"Caution, preparedness and
conservation must be our watch-
words as we enter the seven-
month dry season," said South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict Governing Board Member
Eric Buermann. "These measures
are needed to ensure that our
shared resources remain avail-
able despite this unprecedented
and severe water shortage."
Varying degrees of. water re-
strictions have been in place
throughout South Florida since
the District Governing Board first
issued water shortage orders last
March. Successful application of
these restrictions is estimated to
have saved 11.7 billion gallons
of potable water from March 22,
when restrictions first went into
effect, through June 30. This sav-
ings was,determined based on


"Caution, preparedness and conservation must be
our watchwords as we enter the seven-month dry
season. These measures are needed to ensure that
our shared resources remain available despite this
unprecedented and severe water shortage."

District Governing Board Member


data reported by 46 public water
utilities in Broward, Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Collier, Lee and
Miami-Dade counties only.
Savings were most pro-
nounced on non-watering days.
For example, in the four weeks
before restrictions went into ef-
fect, Broward and Palm Beach
counties typically used 490 mil-
lion gallons of potable water on
Monday. During Phase IlI restric-
tions in May, which cut watering
back to one day per week, po-
table water use dropped to 360
million gallons on Mondays.
During the ongoing water
shortage, the District has received
strong support from local govern-
ments enforcing residential water
restrictions. Since March, more
than 11,000 warning notices and
12,000 citations were issued by
city and county governments.
District officials also issued more
than 700 notices of violation and
collected $400,000 in civil penal-
ties.
"Every South Florida resident
can help stretch our water re-


sources by adhering to restric-
tions and also voluntarily stepping
up their in-home water conserva-
tion practices," said South Florida
Water Management District Ex-
ecutive Director Carol Wehle. "It
is highly probable that more strin-
gent water restrictions may be
necessary before the end of this
dry season."
The District is re-adjusting
water restrictions to reflect ongo-
ing conditions that are expected
to persist until the rainy season
returns in May 2008. In terms of
rainfall, the two-year period from
November 2005 to October 2007
ranks as the driest on record at
the District dating back to 1932.
The District received an average
of only 85.34 inches of rain during
this period, or 82 percent of the
historical average.
Recent rains have fallen pri-
marily on the East Coast, leaving
Lake Okeechobee without a pri-
mary source of water recharge.
The vast lake is the region's back-
up water supply, but remains crit-
ically low and could reach levels


between 7 feet and 8 feet this dry
season. As of Nov. 14, the lake
level was at 10.34 feet, or more
than one foot below its previous
historic low.
Current water shortage re-
sponse plans include maximiz-
ing the water storage capacity in'
coastal canals to encourage aqui-
fer recharge, and retrofitting tem-
porary forward pumps installed
in Lake Okeechobee to ensure
water availability for lakeside
communities and agriculture.
Looking to the future, water
managers are initiating the rule
development process of a Dis-
trict-wide comprehensive water
conservation program. The pro-
gram will include stakeholder
and private sector involvement.
Its goal is to ensure the long-term
sustainability of the region's wa-
ter resources, increase water use
efficiency and curtail wasteful
water use practices through regu-
latory measures, education and
voluntary and incentive-based
programs.
The effort leads off with a Wa-
ter Conservation Summit sched-
uled to draw insight from the
experience of other organizations
that have developed and imple-
mented successful water conser-
vation programs in other regions
of the country. The summit is
scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4,
2007, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
A final report with recommenda-
tions will be presented during the
Governing Board meeting in April
2008, Water Conservation Month.

Bronson reminds consumers to check out charities


STALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging consumers to check
out charitable organizations be-
fore ,making any donations. As
the holidays get underway, chari-
ties are gearing up for their busi-
est time of the year. Many collect
about half their annual donations
in the short time between Thanks-
giving and New Years. There are
12,597 charitable organizations
registered with the state.
"The number of charities reg-
istered with the department con-
tinues to rise and the barrage of
reqraests for help that consum-
ers receive can be daunting," Mr.
Bronson said. "But consumers
have a wealth of information at
their fingertips if they just take a
little time to research a charity to
ensure it is legitimate and that.do-
nations are being spent in a pru-
dent manner."
Florida law requires most
charities that do business in the
state to register with the Depart-
ment and provide financial infor-
mation about income and expen-
ditures, regardless of where the
home base is. There are more
than 11,000 charities registered
with the state.
Consumers should always
make sure a charity is registered
before donating and check on the


"The number of charities registered with the
department continues to rise and the barrage
of requests for help that consumers receive can
be daunting. But consumers have a wealth of
information at their fingertips if they just take a little
time to research a charity to ensure it is legitimate
and that donations are being spent in a prudent
manner."
Charles H. Bronson,
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner


complaint history. However, even
if a charity is properly registered,
consumers should get informa-
tion about how donations are
spent. The Department does not
endorse any charity, even those
properly registered. The Depart-
ment also doesn't have authority
to dictate how a charity spends its
funds but does provide financial
information so consumers can
make educated decisions about
where to contribute. An annual
'Gift Givers' Guide' lists all reg-
istered charities and provides a
breakdown of how much is spent
on fundraising, how much on ad-
ministrative costs such as salaries
and operating expenses, and how
much actually goes toward pro-
gram services. The guide also in-


cludes the names of professional
solicitors and consultant who are
working on behalf of a charitable
organization.
"Unfortunately, some con art-
ists don't think twice about taking
advantage of someone's gener-
osity and giving spirit" Bronson
warned. "That's why it is impor-
tant for consumers to find out if
a charity has registered or is ex-
empt. Failure to properly register
should raise a huge red flag with
consumers."
Bronson also provided the
following tips to consider when
deciding whether to donate to an
organization:
Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive sounding
name. Find out what it actually


does.
Be wary of emotional ap-
peals and organizations that have
only vague plans for spending the
funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation-not an individual.
Be waryof organizations that
offer to send a 'runner' to pick up
your donation.
Reputable charities are will-
ing to wait for your contribution.
Consumers have the right to
ask for an organization's financial
report and its federal tax identifi-
cation number-the latter of which
you'll need to claim your contri-
bution as a tax deduction.
Ask the organization to send
you written information about its
activities.
If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the Department.
Consumers can get informa-
tion about a charity by calling the
Department's Consumer Hotline
at 1-800-HELP FLA (435-7352).
Up to date information on chari-
ties is also available by visiting the
Division of Consumer Services'
website at www.800helpfla.com.
People who have additional ques-
tions or want to report a poten-
tial scam should call the Depart-
ment's hotline.

Ways to keep holiday shopping spirits up


ARA Ah, the holidays: the
joy, the snow, the rush ... the
frustration, the crowds, the bad-
tempers, the rudeness! 'Tis the
season to be jolly, but how do
you survive the holiday shopping
season while keeping your spirits
bright at the same time?
Peggy Post, author of "Em-
ily Post's Etiquette" and 1-800-
FLOWERS.COM's etiquette ex-
pert offers 10 ideas:
1. Smile, Smile, Smile -- You
can't do it enough. Your face -
- and your soul -- will thank you
for it.
2. Lose the 'Bah Humbug!' at-
titude. Yes, it will be crowded and
there will be lines, but don't let
that dampen the season's joie de
vivre.
3. "Please, Thank You and
You're Welcome." Make this your
mantra and you will smooth the
way for better service and create
a kinder, gentler atmosphere all
around.
4. Be gracious. You have cir-
cled the lot for the fifth time when
you spy a space, only to see that


someone else is already waiting
for it. Be gracious. It's the right
thing to do.
5. A little patience, please.
Whether it's the checkout coun-
ter or airline counter, the rules are
the same:.first come, first served,
one at a time.
6. Friendliness. Say "hello"
to the harried clerk behind the
counter and don't forget to smile.
It will make a difference in her at-
titude and could be the best part
of her day!
7. Complain to the proper
person. Yelling at a salesclerk be-
cause a store is out of an adver-
tised item only makes you look
foolish and rude. Ask to speak to
the manager. Frame your com-
plaint clearly and simply and no
venting, please.
8. Cell phones: They're useful
when trying to find out your Aunt
Mary's glove size, but turn them
off when you are working with
a sales clerk or checking out at a
register.
9. Shopping with children:
Don't! It's best to arrange to


leave your children home when
it comes to holiday shopping. If
they must accompany you, make
sure they are well-rested and fed,
and bring along some small toy
to keep their attention.
10. Don't forget the lights -
- traffic lights, that is! People are
distracted this time of year. Stop
at the red lights and use your turn
signals to alert other harried, dis-
tracted shoppers.
Make this truly a season to be
jolly and take the' stress out of
shopping.

st A job well done
//
m Dear Editor,
ir This Monday past, I witnessed
). a service at the Akin-Davis Funeral
- Home, where a very good friend
of mine was placed to rest, Fran-
cisco P. Ryder. His father, Francis
Ryder, and his mother, Carolina,
are longtime friends of me and
my wife and the circumstances
surrounding the death are tragic.
I, as an ex-chief of a major vol-
unteer fire department in Long Is-
land, N.Y, watched as a volunteer
department, composed of Glades
County members, carried out
a honor guard and service that
should be applauded as second
to none, of services that I had wit-
nessed in my 29 years of service.
The way it was handled was
by far one of the best I had ever
seen.
Chief Jason Queen and his
group should be praised for their
efforts.
Francis Ryder, Sr. has seen
many of these sad events, while a
member of the fire service and I
am sure that he and his family are
glad that the fire department of
Muse and other area departments
were there to participate.
I can only say, "Good job well
done!"

s Tribute to a
gr good neighbor
Dear Editor:
Ortona is saddened to have lost
our good neighbor and lifelong
resident, Mr. Marvin Williams.


He was a pioneer, a rancher, a
preacher and a friend to all in Or-
tona and to all those that he met.
Most of all, he was a loving father
and grandfather to his family.
Mr. Williams comes from a
long line of Glades County pio-
neers. His father and mother,
Lonnie and Juanita Townsend
Williams, and grandparents, Tom
and Amanda Williams; were all
residents of Ortona, even back
to the time when it was known
as Chiaha, a cattle shipping point
on the CSX Railroad and a part of
Desoto County.
Everyone appreciated his
Southern hospitality and his gen-
erosity to the Ortona community.
Mr. Williams was one of the finest
southern cooks and barbequer in
our area. Some say the very best.
Most everyone in Ortona and
countless friends from other ar-
eas have eaten Mr. Williams' bar-
beque over the years. On many
occasions in the past, Mr. Williams
would find one reason or another
to invite his friends, his church
and at times the whole Ortona
community to come join him in
one of his celebrations, where all
could enjoy his southern cuisine
prepared by him and his family.
He did it from the bottom of
his heart and unknowingly was
laying down a foundation for his
daughters, Cassie and Dorinda,
who now have one of the finest
catering businesses in our county.
Marvin never met a stranger
and was a benevolent and sharing
friend to all that he met. Whenev-
er your paths crossed, you could
always count on him to share
some stories about the early times
in Glades County.
I will not try to tell of all that


Mr. Williams gave to his church,
his friends, his family, his county
or in the military service to his
country. But I'd like to share just a
little of my association with him.
Mr. Williams attended the very
first meeting to organize the Or-
tona Volunteer Fire Department,
along with the late Ken Bracken,
John Pullen, Vance Storter, as well
as, myself and several other fami-
lies in Ortona. That was 37 years
ago and at that time it seemed an
impossible task for the citizens
of the little Ortona community to
build a firehouse.
Back then there was no reason
to look for money from the coun-
ty; simply put, they didn't have
any. But Ortona knew we could
be just as effective ard efficient as
the other responding fire depart-
ments.
The previous three fires had left
nothing but ashes. The distance
from the responding department
to Ortona was much too far.
A couple years after that par-
ticular meeting, I was knocking
on Mr. Williams' door. We needed
funds for this great undertaking. I
knew Mr. Williams was not going
to give me cash. It simply was not
his style.
But I knew his weakness, or
shall I say his strength. If the fire
department would host a big bar-
beque event, Mr. Williams would
help. I knew he would help a lot.
I told him we needed meat.
He said, "Come down and help
butcher about five or six of my fin-
est purebred Yorkshire hogs."
I said I needed the meat cut
up and Mr. Williams cut it up. I
needed a barbeque pit and he
supplied most of the material to
build a primitive pit. I told him


we needed a beautiful place to
hold the barbeque. He supplied
a beautiful place among the Oaks
near the Indian Mound Park.
Of course, there were others
who brought in equipment to
clear the land. and prepare the
site. There was a lot of work to be
done by a willing group of Ortona
citizens.
We needed coolers and he
supplied about 10 or 12 of them.
That was every cooler he had.
I said we needed slaw and Mr.
Williams said, "Buy the cabbage.
I have a slaw cutter and you can
make it at my place."
I said we needed a place to
store all these things and he said,
"I have a walk-in cooler."
When Mr. Williams saw others
working and making a grand ef-
fort and, I must say, the commu-
nity did just that, he would pitch
in and do most anything asked of
him. The fire department and all
of the many projects that Mr. Wil-
liams helped with are greatly ap-
preciative of his generosity.
I want to say to the Williams'
families that we all agree with the
statement that Mr. Paul Sturtevant
made at Marvin's funeral: "Mr.
Marvin Williams was a friend to
Ortona."
Furthermore, we all say to Mr.
Williams' family that we all share
in the loss of our good neighbor
and pray that your sorrows will
turn to joy in the months ahead
when you think of all the days and
good times you shared with your
father/grandfather and with our
good neighbor.
Sincerely yours,
Larry R. Luckey

Thanksgiving baskets by West Glades kids


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
West Glades students in the
Sixth, Seventh and Eighth grades
are learning early in life the joy of
giving.
Students at all grade levels
in the school have participated
in. the food drives for this yearly
event.
For several weeks they have
been working diligently to bring
foods that will not spoil to fill bas-


kets for Thanksgiving for needy
families.
These are the students of the
Builders Club who are working
in conjunction with the Kiwanis
Club of LaBelle to see that families
in need in our area get a Thanks-
giving basket filled not only with
good food but filled also with
thankfulness for all those who
are contributing to this project...
The sponsor is Mrs. Doreen
Backes, assistant principal of
West Glades School, who is work-
ing with these students for the


third year. The group meets on
the second Wednesday of each
month 7 p.m. Anyone interested
in helping in any way is invited to
meet with this group.
These Thanksgiving baskets
will be delivered to the needy
families on Tuesday and Wednes-
day of this week.
"However," Mrs. Backes said,
"Any who are designated to get
a basket and who can actually
come to the school to pick it up
will be a big help. "Our transpor-
tation is limited but the deliveries


will be made to those who cannot
come to the school in person."
And then Mrs. Backes adds,
"We are all happy to say there
will be a turkey in every basket.
Thanks to the wonderful gener-
osity of Winn-Dixie, and U-Save
Super Markets of LaBelle as well
as a number of private contribu-

tors."
Various private community cit-
izens have also contributed food
and donations to this effort which
emphasizes, "It is more blessed
to give than to receive."

Plan ahead to avoid weight gain


The holiday season brings par-
ties and special foods making it
difficult for many people to stick
to a healthy eating plan. A little
advance planning can help you
avoid gaining holiday weight.
Get enough sleep. There's
always a lot to do during the holi-
day season and it's tempting to
stay up later. If you are tired, you
may be more likely to overeat.
Drink water. Sometimes you
might experience what you think
are hunger pains are actually due
to thirst. Between meals, before
you eat anything, drink a glass
of water and wait a few minutes
before eating.
Be aware of the calories in
beverages. Holiday treats such
as eggnog and punch may be
high in calories. Alcoholic drinks
are especially high in calories
- about 200 calories or more per
drink.
Remember to exercise. If
you are stressed over holiday
plans, exercising may actu-
ally help you sleep and give you
more energy.
If you are going to a party,
eat a salad or some low-fat pro-
tein before you go. If you take the
edge off your appetite before you
go, you are less likely to overin-
dulge on high calorie holiday
goodies.
Rather than deny your-
self your favorite holiday treats,
choose a few and allow yourself
small portions. That way you
won't feel "deprived."
Enjoy holiday foods slowly.
Really enjoy each bite. Remem-
ber, all things in moderation.
If you attend a potluck
meal, make your contribution a
healthy one by bringing a salad
or fresh fruit. That way you will

with Katrina Elsken
know there will be something
there you can eat without going
off your diet. One way to make a
salad look more festive is to use a
deep glass dessert dish and layer
the salad green lettuce, red to-
matoes purple onions, black


olives, etc. Provide a choice of
low fat dressings to go on the
salad.
At a party with a buffet, fill a
small plate and then move away
from the buffet table. If you stand
close to the buffet, the tempta-
tion to keep snacking might be
difficult to resist.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important
if you are on any prescrip-
tion drugs. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

What those food labels mean!


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Food labels can be confusing
and many of us simply don't un-
derstand what all the claims really
mean. Most people know high
fiber and low fat are good, but
what do low and high mean?
If we stick to whole foods in
their originalstate (think fruits and
veggies), we don't have to worry
about labels but most of us just
can't eliminate foods packaged in
boxes, cans and jars.
Let's look at sodium. Low so-
dium'means it has less than 140
mg per serving. Very low sodium
means less than 35 mg and salt
-free or sodium-free means less
than 5 mg per serving.
Some foods have naturally
occurring sodium. For example,
broccoli has 55 mg in a serving
but it is certainly a healthy food.
So while foods have natural sodi-
um in them, make sure you read
the labels on canned and frozen
veggies as they can vary greatly in
the amount of added salt.
What about high fiber? To be
considered a high-fiber product, a
serving must have at least 5 grams
of fiber.
The words rich in or excellent
source may also be used. They
mean the product has at least
20 percent of the recommended
daily value.
For example, oranges are an
excellent source of vitamin C be-
cause they provide 130 percent of
the recommended daily value per
serving.
What about the words good
source of on the label? Good
means it provides at least 10 per-
cent of the recommended daily
value. For example, green beans
are a good source of vitamin C
because a serving gives us 10 per-
cent.
The food label is a great tool
but we need to work on under-
standing what it tells us.

Look for items that have a
short list of ingredients and read
that list.
If it has high fructose corn syr-
up, that's sugar.
If it has partially hydrogenated
oils, that's trans fat. A product
may say it's low fat, but be high
in sugar. It does take practice to
know what all the claims mean.
Think about a food label on an
apple it would say apple.


Then check out a bag of chips,
a box of cookies or other pro-
cessed food and see if you can
pronounce some of the ingredi-
ents.
Look at a bag of frozen plain
veggies and then look at one that
has an added sauce like a butter
sauce. It doesn't say corn and but-
ter. Check it out.
Here's a final thought: if you
can't read it, don't eat it.

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

Benefit relay helps all to celebrate life


By Amanda M. Pacheco
On Sept. 6, the Relay for Life
kicked off the relay season. There
were over 80 people at the event!
Clewiston Middle School do-
nated its cafeteria as well as its
cheerleaders. It was a festive and
enthusiastic night.
Everyone celebrated survivors,
remembered those who lost their
battle, and talked about fighting
back against cancer.
Chairman David McClusky put
out a challenge to all of the teams
that signed up that night to make
this the best relay that Clewiston
has ever seen! He also presented


Drew Sherman's parents, Marga-
ret and Keith Stiles, with a plaque
for all of his hard work and dedi-
cation with the Relay For Life.
Drew Sherman lost his battle
with cancer, but he is remem-
bered and he gives, everyone a
reason to fight back.
There was also a poem read
by.Sonia Reyna during the lumi-
naria recognition that told about
passing on but never forgetting.
The VFW Post 4185 donated
$1,000 and they are also going to
be this year's luminaria sponsor!
Jim Eldrige was the guest
speaker; he is a survivor of can-
cer and the volunteer director for


the state of Florida for the Relay
For Life.
The kickoff was phenom-
enal and the organizers thank
the sponsors for helping with
the event: CVS, Walmart, China
Buffet, Bellos, Hungry Howies,
Sonny's Bar-B-Q, Beef O' Bradys,
WAFC, Clewiston News, VFW,
Pam's Plumbing, B.J. Byrd, Julia
Leyva, and the Clewiston Middle
School staff ard cheerleaders.
So far there are 22 teams
signed up for the Relay for Life
on March 7 and 8. If you are inter-
ested in the Relay for Life, please
contact chairman David McClusky
at (863) 983-5060.

HENDRY COUNTY- Congress-
man Tim VMahoney (FL-16) an-
nounced recently that the Hendry
County Library Cooperative will
receive a $7,500 federal match-
ing grant from the National En-
dowment for the Arts (NEA) to
organize a Big Read program. The
grant will allow the Hendry Coun-
ty Library Cooperative to hold a
reading and discussion program
of Their Eyes Were Watching God
by Zora Neale Hurston.
The NEA will also provide Hen-
dry County with free support ma-
terials including readers' guides
for students and community par-
ticipants, teachers' guides, audio
introductions to the book, a com-
prehensive website, and television
and radio spots.


"The Big Read Program is a
great program that brings com-
munities together in a way that
teaches our children that reading
is important and that literature
teaches us about who we are
as a nation. I want to thank the
NEA for their support of Hendry
County," said Congressman Tim
Mahoney.
"This grant will allow us to im-
merse Hendry County in a 'Big
Read' experience. We hope to
get everyone from middle school
students to senior citizens talk-
ing about our book choice 'Their
Eyes Were Watching God' by Zora
Neale Hurston. We have planned
over 35 programs for January and
February, 2008," said Barbara Oef-
fner, Clewiston Library Director


and Executive Director of the Hen-
dry County Library Cooperative.
Hendry County was one of 130
communities selected nationwide
to participate in the first phase of
the 2008 Big Read program taking
place between January and June
2008. The Big Read is an initia-
tive of the National Endowment
for the Arts designed to restore
reading to the center of American
culture. The NEA presents The
Big Read in partnership with the
Institute of Museum and Library
Services and in cooperation with
Arts Midwest.

Tigers stun Bishop Verot and advance in playoffs


By Jeff Barwick
When Clewiston took the field
Friday night against Bishop Verot,
they were underdogs by a wide
margin.
Bishop Verot was 7-3 on the
season and featured a potent
passing game.
Pass defense had not been one
of the Tiger fortes this season and
their 4-6 regular season record
told the rest of the story.
However, the Tigers were not
into predictions, forecasts and
water that had already passed un-
der the bridge. They showed up
to play football, and play football
they did, whipping the Vikings
26-13 to advance to the Class 2A
Regional playoff semifinals.
The Tigers will host a very
good Tampa Catholic team at Fri-
day night at Cane Field.
The Tigers got off to a shaky
start and at the end of the first
period it seemed that the predic-
tions had been right on target.
The Vikings took the opening
kickoff and marched to the Tiger
30, where quarterback and kicker
Butch Moore hit on a 47-yard field
goal.
On their next possession, a
short punt gave them the ball at
the Tiger 43. The Tiger defense
gave up one first down but then
stiffened and forced another 47-
yard field goal attempt. This one
missed the mark ever so slightly

to the left.
On the offensive side of things,
the first period saw Clewiston
only manage six plays, incur two
costly penalties and make no first
downs.
In the second quarter, the Tiger
defense kept upping the intensity
of play and forced a Viking punt
from near midfield. The ball hit
around the 10 yard line, bounced
around and eventually popped
up in the face of Tiger return man
Zack Waddell, who instinctively'
grabbed for the ball but couldn't
hold on. Verot recovered the fum-
ble at the Tiger 2-yard stripe.
The defense stopped them cold


on two tries but the Vikings then
scored on a pass from Moore to
tight end Kyle Becker. Trailing by
10 points and being shut out, the
pre-game predictions still seemed
very true.
The Tigers began their next
possession at their 20 after a kick-
off into the end zone.
Seventeen plays later, Clewis-
ton hit paydirt when tailback Co-
lin Ricketts smashed through on a
13-yard run.
The drive featured three third-
down and one fourth-down con-
versions and three penalties.
Ricketts had runs of 24, 13
and 12 yards prior to his scor-


ing run and quarterback Isandro
Marquez also had a timely pass
completion of 8 yards to wideout
P.J. Runkles.
Tailback Darris Hughes also
contributed with a 24-yard run
during the drive.
The Tigers went to the lock-
ers at half trailing 10-7 but having
shown the crowd and the Vikings
that they intended to run the ball.
Clewiston took the second-
half kickoff and marched 68 yards
on seven snaps. Ricketts dashed
off the left side and hit the corner
pylon for a 22-yard touchdown to
put the Tigers in the lead for the
first time in the game.
The Vikings' offense was
stuffed on the following posses-
sion and a poor punt off the side
of Moore's foot gave Clewiston
the ball at the Vikings 21.
Hughes had runs of 13 and 7
before getting the final yard off
the left tackle.
The Vikings were stopped
again on their next drive after
only making one first down.
As the third period ended,
Clewiston was leading 19-10 and
had held the Vikings to 38 yards
rushing and 62 yards passing.
The Tiger defense kept the Vi-
kings in check on their first final
periodoffensive series.
But then the Vikings' defense
returned the favor and got the


ball back at midfield.
Eight plays later, they had
reached the Tiger 22, where they
were stopped in their tracks on
three straight incompletions.
Moore then booted a 40-yard
field goal to narrow the Tiger lead
to 19-13.
The Tigers took the kickoff and
wasted no time in responding.
After Ricketts hit the line for 2
yards, Hughes went off the right
side and then streaked 67 yards
untouched to seal the game for
Clewiston.
Another Bishop Verot drive
was stymied by an interception
by cornerback Zack Waddell,
which he returned 34 yards.
On their final series of the
game, the Vikings did drive
back deep in Tiger territory but
the game ended as Moore was
sacked on the final two plays of
the game.
Tackle Nick Raiola got the first
sack for a loss of two yards and
'then defensive end Willie Arm-
strong nailed Moore on a 12-yard
loss as the game ended.
The offense was potent on the
night, rolling up 289 yards rush-
ing on 42 attempts.
Darris Hughes finished with
165 yards and Colin Ricketts add-
ed 120.
Their offensive line was click-
ing for the final three periods with


impressive blocking all along the
front.
Seniors Ryan Gutshall at cen-
ter, guard Nick Raiola and tackle
Chris Bell, along with juniors
Adam Trevino at guard, and tack-
le Troy Kornya, controlled the line
of scrimmage and opened nice
holes for Ricketts and Hughes.
Defensively, the Tigers turned
in.their best performance of the
year. They hit hard and kept deny-
ing Moore the time he needed and
covering receivers downfield.
Ricketts, from his linebacker
position, had seven tackles and
an assist. Armstrong had six so-
los, an assist and three quarter-
back sacks for a total of 16 yards
lost.
Raiola also had a running
back sack to go with his quar-
terback sack. On the night, Verot
was held to only 28 yards rushing
on 25 tries.
Tampa Catholic finished the
regular season 8-2 and beat Bish-
op Verot 35-0 in regular season
play.
In their first round playoff
game last Friday, they handily
whipped Inlet Grove, runner-up
to Clewiston in District 2A-6.
The Crusaders are a very good
team with a balanced offense so
it will take another great effort by
the Tigers to remain alive in the
playoffs.

Book week at WGS
West Glades School in Muse held a book week celebration. Nov. 16 was character dress
up day. Students and staff dressed up as their favorite story book character. From left to
right we have Windell, Aries and Emily. See more at photos.newszap.com.


By Bonnie Marchal
West Glades School
With the holidays approach-
ing, we often think of being home
with family and friends. But there
are many men and women who
won't be at home this year be-
cause they are in the military,
stationed over seas, fighting a war
to keep our country free. The war
has touched many of our lives and
that is what got Mrs. Marchal's
seventh grade class thinking. If the
military members couldn't come
home for the holidays, how they
could bring a little bit of home to
them overseas.
They searched for answers to
their questions on the internet un-
til they discovered that they could
send goodies in "care packages"
to show how much they cared.
They researched what kind of
goodies would be appreciated
and useful and what wouldn't.
The next question they had to an-
swer was how they were going to
do this and where the money was
going to come from. That's when
they came up with the "Treats for
Troops" program and the "Pen-
nies for Packages" campaign to
collect money to buy the goodies.
The class planned and pre-
sented their idea to the rest of
the school in an assembly during
Celebrate Freedom Week. They
invited the LaBelle American Le-
gion to post the flags and then Mr.
Paul's band played the National
Anthem. Students recited the
beginning of the Declaration of
Independence and performed a
play showing how lonely it could
be stationed overseas if it wasn't
for the letters and packages mili-
tary members receive from back


Submitted photo/Bonnie Marchal
Seventh grade students from Mrs. Marchal's class at West
Glades School thought hard about what they could do to ease
the sadness of soldiers who will be away from family and
friends for the coming holiday season. The students came up
with a care package program where they would raise funds
to purchase "comfort" items to send to show how much the
students care.


home. Avery Alaimo read the
poem she wrote entitled, "What
Freedom Means to Me."
Finally, the class introduced
their Pennies for Packages pro-
gram. A milk jug, decorated in pa-
triotic colors, was placed in each
classroom to collect pennies and
loose change to buy goodies to
send overseas. The lure of a pizza
party for the class that collected
the most money energized the
students and for five weeks they
searched high and low for loose
change. There was a hotly con-
tested race for first place and the
collection ended in a tie. Two of
our classes, Mrs. Braswell's kin-


dergarten and Mrs. Fleming's first
grade class, brought in more than
$200, so Mrs. Marchal decided
that they both deserved a pizza
party. The third place class, Mrs.
Gaskins' third grade class, brought
in over $100 so they are going to
celebrate with a snack party. In
all, West Glades School surpassed
everyone's expectations and
brought in a whopping $1,355.23.
Gladly there was enough money
collected to buy goodies for one
unit from each of the four mili-
tary services currently stationed
overseas..Thank you West Glades
Students, families and friends for
being so generous.

nearby a boat ramp. According to
residents, their property has lost
its value because Buckhead Ridge
was noted as a'fishing haven with
lovely water birds and quick ac-
cess to fishing hot spots.
Recently though, it has the im-
age of grounded boats and dry
canals filled with tall grass.
There are other canals in
Glades County with similar navi-
gation problems such as the Old
Moore Haven Canal. Many resi-
dents had asked local government
for assistance in appealing to SF-
WMD and the Corps of Engineers
(COE) for cleaning and maintain-
ing the canals which were created
as a route for watercraft.
Residents wanted to rescue
the recreation-based economy of
their communities. The low water
levels are not a new problem for
Buckhead Ridge, especially in the
summer.
The situation had increasingly
become worse.
On June 25,'a county commis-
sioner meeting took place with
representatives from SFWMD,
COE and Senator J.D. Alexander's
office. County government and
residents tried to establish who
owns the canals, and who is re-
sponsible for maintaining these
navigation routes. Representa-
tives from state agencies were un-
able to say who was to be held
accountable for maintainence.
Glades County found itself
dry-docked by the bureaucracy of
state government.

did their homework and re-
searched the history of canal
ownership through old state and
county documents.
They presented their findings
to the board in a resolution that
places the Pearce Canal under the
jurisdiction of SFWMD.
"It is important for the entire
county," said Commissioner Rus-
sell Echols.
Other canal restoration proj-
ects have been undertaken by Mr.
Echols who sits on the panel of
the Ten County Coalition. Many
hope this will be the start of re-
storing recreational tourism, and
of allowing residents to enjoy the
beauty of their chosen home.
The Glades County resolution
respectfully asks SFWMD to open
and clean the Pearce Canal of
debris and to make it a safe, navi-
gable route.
This includes removing silt and
bottoni material to obtain a water
depth equal to the level of Lake
Okeechobee nearest the lakeside
end of the Pearce Canal.
The resolution also calls for the
SFWMD to maintain safe naviga-
tion between Lake Okeechobee
Buckhead Ridge Lock 127 via the
Pearce Canal.
County commissioners have
welcomed the volunteer efforts of
civic minded citizens.
"These people have done a
lot of work and found out these
canals are owned by water man-
agement. They wouldn't claim it
until Maureen Bradley did the re-
search," said Commissioner Rob-
ert Giesler.
Residents and local govern-
ment must wait for SFWMD to
respond to the resolution.

The Glades offers expanded amenities


By Patty Brant
INI
No matter where you live,
wholesome recreation needs to
be a part of your surroundings.
The Hendry/Glades area has
traditionally been lacking in rec-
reational facilities, but there is a
growing complex that can pro-
vide fun for the whole family.
The Glades Resort, on S.R. 80,
about 10 miles east of LaBelle, is
growing into a destination for lo-
cals and out-of-staters.
Jon Loftis purchased the old
Hendry Isles Resort about four
years ago from Joel Hendry. Mr.
Loftis is also the president of The
Loftis Foundation, a Christian or-
ganization that seeds churches all
over the world and supports mis-
sionary work. His long term goal
is to build The Glades into a cen-
ter of recreational activity, then
gift much of it to the foundation
as a continuous financial stream
for its mission. The entire resort
takes in a total of 492 acres; so
there's plenty of room to expand.
Tim Smith, Mr. Loftis' long-
time friend and executive vice
president of the Loftis Corpora-
tion and The Glades Resort, has
handled the day-to-day opera-
tions at the resort since last April.
This frees Mr. Loftis to apply him-
self wholeheartedly to the expan-
sion of The Glades with an eye on
being able to focus on his foun-
dation as soon as possible.
The Glades Resort is actually
made up of four different busi-
nesses: the recreational vehicle
(RV) park, golf course, grill and
marina.
The RV park is currently un-
der expansion. By the end of
November or December it will
grow from 100 to 325 sites. By
the 2008-09 season, there will be
a total of 486 sites. As park hosts,
Bill and Sue Trammel welcome
guests and tend to their needs.
The new sites are 35x70 and
all the sites are surrounded by
lots of green space. An oversized
RV can easily be accommodated,
with room for a boat as well. In
addition, there is a storage lot for
RVs and campers. For more in-
formation about the RV park, call
Robin Jones at (863) 902-7034 or
go to their Web site: TheGlades-
Resort.com.
Mr. Smith stated that they will
be selling park models in the near
future. These are still classified
as RVs, but have a more perma-
nent look. They are factory-built
up to 500 square feet and have
a screened-in porch or Florida
room. They can be "homes away
from home" for locals or vacation
homes for visitors. In fact, they
are developing a special series of
park models The Glades series
just for the park. Because they
are built on an RV frame, they


"Few RV parks can boast their own golf courses,
and most of those are not a full nine-hole course
as at The Glades. Only a handful of RV parks have
marinas. That makes The Glades RV a pretty special
spot for the vacationer as well as locals who are
just looking to get away from it all."
Robin Jones


are movable. Many of the Calo-
osa View park models have golf
course or canal frontage.
If you haven't been in the area
for a while, you will find that the
paving of the roads is near com-
pletion: Electric hook ups 30 and
50 amp service are complete.
Campers can enjoy the heated
pool, clubhouse with kitchen fa-
cilities, dance floor, theater room
and pool tables. The clubhouse
can be rented for special occa-
sions. In addition, campers can
play shuffleboard, horseshoes,
tennis or basketball and use the
exercise room. Soon campers
will be able to look forward to
lounging in hot tubs. Look for a
skeet range and paint ball facility
in the future as well.
The RV park is open year
round and provides two com-
fort stations with laundry facili-
ties. On Sunday, Jackie Smith of
Clewiston Christian Church holds
services for those who wish to at-
tend.
Just can't keep your hands off
your computer? The Glades offers
Yfi service for campers.
Of course, The Glades still has
cabin rentals six rustic efficiency
units that will sleep four.
Mr. Smith stated that the nine-
hole golf course will "amaze" any-
one who hasn't been out to see it
in a while. It is a public course,
which is open for LaBelle and
Clewiston high school golf teams
to practice and hold matches. The
course is open Monday, Wednes-
day and Friday for 8:30 and 10
a.m. scrambles. There is a Thurs-
day evening league and a skins
game Saturday morning and the
course can even be rented for pri-
vate functions.
Kevin McDaniel has been the
superintendent of the course for
almost a year.
Plans are in the works to add
another nine holes Right at the
edge of the golf course is the
Glades Grill. Shirley Nugent is the
manager there and also admin-
istrative assistant to Mr. Loftis.
With a menu to satisfy a hungry
golfer (or anyone else), the Grill
is open 8 a.m.-5 p.m. seven days
a week and evenings for special
events. The most popular item
on the menu is their Black Angus
burger, but they also offer salads
and wraps.
The Grill has been renovated
and currently seats 40. The patio


is also being expanded, and will
eventually seat an additional 50-
60 diners.
Campers will also be able to
pick up basic staples at The Grill
and won't have to run to town to
pick up things like eggs, milk and
bread.
Currently, the marina has 14
slips' but a total of 40 are planned.
Bill Daniels is dock master for this
deepwater shelter. A public boat
ramp is also available.
"Few RV parks can boast their
own golf courses," pointed out
Mr. Jones, "and most of those are
not a full nine-hole course as at
The Glades. Only a handful of RV
parks have marinas. That makes
The Glades RV a pretty special
spot for the vacationer as well as
locals who are just looking to get
away from it all."


Eight acres on the west side
of the property is dedicated to a
Retreat Center, the Caloosa Ham-
mock Ranch Wild Creek Adven-
tures. Bill Redmon, retired from
35 years as a camp director, is
coming from Camp Aurora Chris-
tian Camp in Lake Wales to take
charge of it. Ground breaking is
expected in February 2008 for the
retreat center, which will have a
western town theme. It will be a
150-bed facility for Christian re-
treats and business groups. Cur-
rently, the center can handle hold
small overnight retreats of 8-10
people.
And the plans continue. The
Hendry-Glades Rodeo 'Associa-
tion is using the old rodeo rink out
there for rodeos once a month.
Mr. Smith said that as the area
develops, The Glades will offer
25 garden-patio homes on unde-
veloped property next to Indian
Hills. Homeowners will have use
of the park facilities.
Mr. Loftis and Mr. Smith want
to build an escape for Florid-
ians with the old F'lonida charm
missed by locals and sought out
by travelers. The Glades is their
dream come true thiy hope it
will be yours too.

Thanksgiving: Lessons from scripture


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
As I plan for Thanksgiving, I
know the day will be a bit quieter
than usual. I won't be in the of-
fice or making calls, won't look
at my "to do" .--
list, won't be
catching up on
things put off. I ..
will be sharing "
a meal and see-
ing if I can find,
something that
I would like to
do; just for me, Samuel S.
just for some- Thomas
one else, for our
dog. The blessing of a quieter-
than-usual day is that I will have a
chance to reflect on "being thank-
ful."
Things are certainly not a
Garden of Eden these days and
there's a lot that needs improve-
ment. I listen to the news: the job
scene, the possibility of a reces-
sion, global warming, the price
of gasoline, a war that calms
down in one area and pops up in
another and wonder where will
it all lead. Then I look at our re-
frigerator: food for quite a time to


come. I look at our carport; more
vehicles than really needed. I look
at my closet; more clothes and
more shoes than in most of the
world. I will take a few moments
to be thankful that my worries
about food or clothing or shelter
are different than those on other
continents. In fact, they have been
that way for a long, long time.
As I write, a transient comes
to the door. He has come here
from the north and hasn't gotten
his first paycheck yet. Could I help
him? Yes, we have a food pantry
for such needs and we give him
something to eat. He may remem-
ber this day and when he gets on
his feet and feed someone else. I
am thankful this day to have been
able to help. It's our way of be-
ing thankful; by helping others.
I will visit someone who cannot
come to visit me. I will recall the
first Thanksgiving and think about
other Thanksgivings, too. We will
commemorate the Lord's Supper
in church on Thanksgiving Day.
The Biblical account tells us
that the Lord "gave thanks" when
He took the bread and took the
cup of wine (Matthew 26:26-
27, Luke 22:17 19). I recall that
things around Him those days
were in quite a turmoil; a shaky


peace with the Romans, people
living in fear of local tyrants,
knowing that betrayal and execu-
tion were around the corner for
Him. Nevertheless, He stopped
to give thanks for the blessings
of the meal and what it stood for.
I suppose He remembered the
twelve that were with Him and
was thankful for their friendship.
I imagine that He remembered
His reason for coming here in the
first place and giving thanks that
His ministry was almost fulfilled.
Maybe He remembered to be
thankful for the provisions to be
shared; food that had really been
provided all of His earthly life.
I remember our own Pilgrims
who had all sorts of reasons to
complain once they found them-
selves at Plymouth; leaving com-
fortable homes and "civilization",
friends and family, making a very
risky sea crossing in boats that
we would hesitate to use today.
They all gave thanks, too, in spite
of having all sorts of troubles and
problems; God was there with
them and they saw things from
His viewpoint. That would leave
anyone truly thankful.
Today, we hear a lot about
"stress" and how it is bad for
us. I've found that by stopping


The most valuable word in any


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
When Mark Twain was at
the peak of his writing career,
it is said that his magazine and
journal articles were worth $5 a
word--a great sum of money in
those days. One enterprising Har-
vard graduate student sent Mark
Twain a letter: "Dear Mr. Twain,
enclosed please find $5. Please
send me your best word."
A few days later, the student re-
ceived a telegram with this single
word response: "Thanks!"
"Thanks" may be the most
valuable word in any language.
It is certainly the word that domi-
nates our thinking during our
short and sweet Thanksgiving
season. I say short and sweet
because no sooner do the Hal-
loween decorations go down,
the Christmas decorations go up.
Traditionally, one of the biggest
shopping days of the year is the
day after Thanksgiving. This year,
A however, several stores are start-


ing their sales on Thanksgiving.
The financial pressures which
have kidnapped Christmas and
turned it into a buying binge have
run over Thanksgiving. I
To understand Thanksgiv-
ing from a faith perspective, we
need- to detach
Thanksgiving j
from outer cir-
cumstances.
Thanksgiving is ''
not just for peo- a'
pie who can say, ",
"I am better off '
than I was last "'
year." Or, "I am J
in good health." John
Or, "My family Hicks
is happy." Thanksgiving is giving
thanks even in the midst of all that
is going around us.
Think for a moment about the
first Thanksgiving. During the first
winter, half of the Plymouth colo-
nists died. Friendly Indians, how-
ever, taught.the Pilgrims to fish off
the rocky coasts, to plant corn,
and to hunt. The following sum-
mer and fall brought a good har-


vest. So, despite all the death and
hardships, they held a three-day
thanks-giving celebration with
about ninety Indians as guests.
Real thanks-giving is a declara-
tion of faith concerning the One
who is bigger than our circum-
stances, the One who can make
all things work together for good.
Real thanks-giving is based on
faith- stance rather than circum-
stance. This is what is meant
when the Scriptures admonish
us to, "Give thanks in all circum-
stances, for this is God's will for
you in Christ Jesus."
In the 1962 Thanksgiving Day
proclamation, President John
F. Kennedy summarized it well:
"Over three centuries ago in
Plymouth, on Massachusetts Bay,
the Pilgrims established the cus-
tom of gathering together each
year to express their gratitude to
God for the preservation of their
community and for the harvests
their labors brought forth in the
new land. Joining with their
neighbors, they shared together
and worshiped together in a com-


to think about what makes me
thankful, some of the stress dis-
appears. The things that cause
stress are very real, but they're
not always the biggest thing in
life or even the most important.
When I seek things to be thank-
ful about, I find it as an antidote
to some of the worries that could
be overwhelming if they got out
of hand.
Somehow, Thanksgiving or
giving thanks services to offset the
fear, or anger, or hatred, or disap-
pointment, or feeling cheated that
can consume and preoccupy us
as human beings.
It was over a meal that our
Lord took time to have a dialogue
with those around Him at that
table. It was a moment to step
back, to be grateful and to share,
a time of Thanksgiving.
We will have a moment to
step back, be grateful, share, be
strengthened by food and fellow-
ship and be made ready to face
once more the challenges that lay
ahead; we will have a thanksgiv-
ing. People can find all sorts of
reasons not to be thankful; but
being thankful makes all of the
difference. The Lord gave us that
example; take time to thank Him,
too.


language

mon giving of thanks. Thanksgiv-
ing Day has ever since been part
of the fabric which has united
Americans with their past, with
each other, and with the future
of all mankind...It is fitting that
we give our thanks for the safety
of our land, for the fertility of our
harvests, for the strength of our
liberties, for the health of our
people ... I urge that all observe
this day with reverence and with
humility. Let us renew the spirit
of the Pilgrims at the first Thanks-
giving, facing the dark unknown
with a faith born of their dedica-
tion to God and a fortitude drawn
from their sense that all men
were brothers. Let us renew that
spirit by offering our thanks for
un-covenanted mercies, beyond
our desert or merit, and by resolv-
ing to meet the responsibilities
placed upon us. Let us renew that
spirit by sharing the abundance of
this day with those less fortunate,
in our own land and abroad. Let
us renew that spirit by seeking al-
ways to establish larger commu-
nities of brotherhood." Amen!


Thanksgiving!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
You've probably heard the
story of the first Thanksgiving,
but maybe you're not familiar
with how it developed into a na-
tional holiday. In the fall of 1621,
the Pilgrims of Plymouth Colony
invited their Wampanoag friends
to a feast to give thanks to God
for the bountiful harvest that
would sustain them all winter.
Just a few months earlier, their
first harsh winter at Plymouth
had devastated the unprepared
Pilgrims, taking the lives of half
the colony. Now they were filled
with gratitude that this winter
would be different. To celebrate
the harvest and their ability to
worship God without fear of
persecution, they spent three
days feasting and praying.
The Pilgrims repeated this
harvest feast in the years that
followed. The tradition of annu-
al Thanksgiving developed and
spread throughout New Eng-
land, and later to other colonies.
But it was not until 1863, when
President Abraham Lincoln gave
a Thanksgiving Proclamation
emphasizing the importance of
recognizing God as the provider
of all blessings every year. That
Thanksgiving became a nation-
ally recognized annual holiday.
He began his speech by say-
ing, "This year that is drawing
toward its close has been filled
with blessings of fruitful years.
and healthful skies. To these
bounties which are so constant-
ly enjoyed that we are prone to
forget the source from which
they come, others have been
added which are of so extraor-
dinary a nature that they can not
fail to penetrate and soften even
the heart which is habitually
insensible to the ever-watchful
providence of Almighty God."
Lincoln was grateful because
events of that year had turned
the tide of the Civil War, and it
finally looked as if the ruptured
nation would see a resolution.
Just like the Pilgrims, Lincoln
had seen hard times and want-
ed to express his gratitude to
the Lord for providing relief. He
concluded by designating the
last Thursday of November as a


national day of Thanksgiving.
The tradition was upheld by
most subsequent presidents un-
til Depression-era business own-
ers prompted Franklin D. Roos-
evelt to lengthen the Christmas
shopping season by observing
Thanksgiving a week earlier in
1939. After two more years of
early Thanksgiving, public out-
rage led Congress in 1941 to
pass a law solidifying the fourth
Thursday of every November as
Thanksgiving.
In this season of Thanksgiv-
ing, what should you thank God
for? The answer is anything and
everything! Thank Him for your
family, your friends, the food
you eat and the roof over your
head. But most of all, you can
thank Him for the wonderful gift
of His Son Jesus Christ!
The Bible tells us that salva-
tion is not something that cane
be earned, but is given to us
freely by God. Jesus said: "Go
into all the world and preach the
gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved." (Mark 16:15-16). Ephe-
sians 2:8-9, says, "For by grace
you have been saved through
faith. And this is not your own
doing; it is the gift of God, not a
result of works, so that no may
boast." Because we are all sin-
ners, we cannot possibly reach
Heaven based on our own mer-
its, "For all have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God" (Ro-
mans 3:23). But because of His
love for us, God provided a way
for us to be saved through the
death and resurrection of His
Son, Jesus Christ. "For God so
loved the world, that he gave His
only Son, that whoever believes
in Him should not perish but
have eternal life" (John 3:16).
Eternal life what blessing
could be greater? If you want to
enter Heaven, believe that Jesus
died for your sins, was buried
and arose from the dead. Re-
pent of your sins. Confess faith
in Him and be immersed for the
remission of your sins to receive
the gift of thd Holy Spirit. Be
faithful to His church and what
He has commanded. Then you
will have something to be really
Thankful for!

TO BE VOTED ON JANUARY 29, 2008
NOTICE OF ELECTION

I, Kurt S, Browning, Secretary ol State of the State of Florida, do hereby give notice thal an election wll be held in each county in Florida, on January
29, 2008, for the ratificaton or rejection ol a proposed revision to the constitution of the State of Flonda

No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3,4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS: UMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. Wth respect to homestead property, this revision: (1) increases
the homestead exemption except for school district taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners to transfer up to $50,000 ol their Save-Our-Homes
benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this rewsion (3) provides a $25,000 exemplicn for tangible personal proper-
ty and (4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomeslead real property except for school district taxes,

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to
school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes
benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by
the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. l the new homestead has a higher just value than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be transferred; If lIe new homestead has a lower
just value, the amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Umts the assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property to 10 percent each year. Property will be assessed at just value
following an improvement, as defined by general law, and may be assessed at just value following a change of ownership or control if provided by gen-
eral law, This limitation does not apply to school district taxes. This limitation is repealed effective January 1,2019, unless renewed by a vote of the elec-
tors in the general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than $25,000 and did not apply uniformly to property taxes levied
by all local governments
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for assessment of homesteads'at less than
just value' rather than as currently provided 'at a specified percentage' of lust value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1,2008, ii approved in a special elec-
lion held on January 29, 2008, or to take effect January 1, 2009, if approved in the general election held in November of 2008. The limitation on annu-
al assessment increases for specified real property shall frst apply to the 2009 ax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on January
29, 2008, or shall first apply to the 2010 lax roll if this revision is approved in the general election held in November ol 2008.

You can holiday shop without a trace of holiday debt


WEST PALM BEACH The
average consumer plans to spend
$923.36 this holiday season, ac-
cording to the National Retail
Federation (NRF). Challenging
economic conditions and a bleak
housing market will cause many
consumers to be more conserva-
tive with their holiday spending,
but many others will find them-
selves struggling to pay holiday
debt well into spring and beyond.
"Nothing takes the joy out
of the season faster than over-
whelming debt," said Jessica
Cecere, president of Consumer
Credit Counseling Service (CCCS)
of Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast. "Plan carefully,
shop wisely, and don't lose sight
of what is truly important during
the holidays-quality time with
family and friends."
Increasing your income during
the holiday season is a great way
to avoid accumulating debt that
you may spend months paying
off. According to the NRF, almost
600,000 seasonal jobs will be
available in November and De-


cember. Working a few evenings
a week or weekends can provide
the additional money you will
need to buy gifts for family and
friends without overextending
yourself or your budget.
CCCS offers other tips to help
consumers this holiday season:
*Budget before you shop
Deciding what you can spend
before you hit the mall can save
you in the long run, especially if
you plan to make purchases with
cash instead of credit. Along with
gifts, be sure to include decora-
tions, wrapping and cards, and
entertainment when developing
your holiday budget. If you will
be traveling this holiday season,
do not forget to include the cost
of travel, gasoline, airfare, hotel
stays, meals and entertainment.
*Make a list and check it
twice
Make a list of all the people
you want to buy gifts for and
note the amount you would like
to spend on each person, making
sure that your total does not ex-
ceed the spending limit you set. If


it does, review and revise the list
until you are within your budget.
If you track your purchases as you
make them, you might find you
save money on some gifts and
have more to allocate to others
on your list.
* Do your homework and shop
around
Retailers already have a full
array of holiday items on display,
and many have already started
offering discounts to encourage
consumers to buy. By getting an
early start on your holiday shop-
ping, you can take advantage of
sales on seasonal items and look
for the best prices on items you
know you want to buy. *In ad-
dition to weekly sales papers,
use online comparison shopping
sites to find the best prices. Sites
such as www.pricegrabber.com
, www.bizrate.com and www.
mysimon.com. Compare the
prices of multiple retailers on the
same item. *You can then order
items online or purchase them
locally. Before you buy, search
for discounts -- www.coupon-


cabin.com is a great resource for
coupon codes that can save you
shipping charges or a percentage
off your total purchase. Have an
expired coupon for a favorite re-
tailer? Many will honor coupons
long past-the expiration. Be sure
to ask. Don't rule out non-tradi-
tional retailers -- thrift stores, dis-
count stores, consignment shops,
and specialty stores might have
just what you're looking for at a
much lower price.
*Use credit wisely-or not at
all
Avoid using credit cards to
make holiday purchases, espe-
cially if you are not able to pay
the balance in full at the end of
the month. Spending more than
you have budgeted is much more
likely if you are using credit cards,
especially if you're rushed for
time and feeling the stress of holi-
day shopping. Leaving your credit
cards at home will help ensure
that you will stick to your budget,
even if it means spending a little
more time looking for the right
gift.


If you do use credit cards for
holiday shopping, keep a run-
ning tally of what you have spent
and deduct it from your checking
account balance. Incorporating
these purchases into your budget
will help ensure you don't over-
spend. '
*Give back to others
If money is extremely tight,
you may want to give back to oth-
ers, which is truly what the holi-
days are all about. You and your
family may want to volunteer at a
food bank, church, shelter or hos-
pital instead of worrying about
purchasing gifts.
*Make your own gifts
For families with relatives who
live out of town, children can
make a scrapbook that includes
test paper, pictures of their favor-
ite activity, a drawing or painting
that they made just for the rela-
tive. And the scrapbook can con-
tain an area to place little notes by
the picture describing the event
or the occasion. In addition, chil-
dren can make a personal card for
their grandparents/or relatives in-


stead of purchasing a card. These
sentimental gifts mean so much
more than purchasing a bathrobe
or the like.

Joint funding of land purchase to help Caloosahatchee River


KEY LARGO Just two days
after Lee County approved $10
million toward purchasing land
for a project to improve water
quality in the .Caloosahatchee
River, the South Florida Water
Management District Governing
Board Nov. 15 approved a Memo-
randum of Agreement with the
county to jointly finance the $37
million land acquisition.
The State and District together
will add $27 million to Lee Coun-
ty's funds to acquire 1,770 acres
along the river, where a water
quality treatment and testing facil-
ity will be built. Using treatment
cells and technologies now under
development, the project will pro-


vide water quality improvements
in the Caloosahatchee River, con-
tributing toward progress in the
massive undertaking to restore
the northern Everglades.
"This agreement embodies the
spirit of mutually supportive ef-
forts to benefit the environment,"
said South Florida Water Manage-
ment District Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann. "Local
citizens, county leaders, environ-
mental groups, state scientists,
engineers and water managers
all worked together to address
common water quality concerns
with the river. We commend Lee
County for its commitment to this
outstanding project, which will


benefit the entire region and its
residents."
"Execution of this Agreement
by Lee County is the culmination
of our efforts to develop and expe-
dite projects for the protection of
the Caloosahatchee River and Es-
tuary," said Bob Janes, Lee Coun-
ty Commission Chairman. "The
Lee County Board of County
Commissioners is thrilled to join
the State and District as partners
dedicated to making protection
of Lee County's precious natural
resources a reality. This is a vital
first step and demonstrates the
commitment of Lee County to
work with our partners." ( Click
here to view Memorandum of


Agreement )
Water managers are target-
ing at least 1,335 acres out of the
1,770 acres of land about eight
miles east of LaBelle in Glades
County for the water quality proj-
ect that will remove nutrients and
sediments from water flowing
into the Caloosahatchee River.
When complete, the facility will
compliment the C-43 West Stor-
age Reservoir to improve the
quantity, timing and delivery of
water into the Caloosahatchee
River and estuary. ( Click here to
view maps of the area, Map 2 )
Located on 10,000 acres of for-
mer farmland in Hendry County
south of the river, the West Res-


ervoir will hold approximately
170,000 acre-feet of water, with
a range in depth from 15 to 25
feet. It will comprise a significant
portion of the total water storage
requirement for the Caloosa-
hatchee Estuary. The reservoir
will capture and store local basin
runoff and a portion of regulatory
releases from Lake Okeechobee,
reducing harmful discharges to
the coastal estuaries, improving
the health of the ecosystem and
revitalizing fish and oyster habi-
tats by maintaining salinity levels.
The Caloosahatchee River
water storage and water quality
projects are a part of the State's
plan to restore the northern Ev-


erglades. The 2007 Florida Leg-
islature this year expanded the
Lake Okeechobee Protection Act
to safeguard and restore the en-
tire northern Everglades system,
including the,Lake Okeechobee
watershed as well as the Caloo-
sahatchee and St. Lucie rivers
and estuaries. Over the next two
years, the law calls for the devel-
opment of far-reaching plans to
protect and improve the quality,
quantity, timing and distribution of
water north of Lake Okeechobee.
These plans will augment and
enhance restoration under way
in the remnant Everglades south
of the lake.
