South Florida


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict issued a media advisory on
April 8 and declared that the cur-
rent dry season is the third driest
since record keeping began in
1932. Florida's dry season is part
of the climate cycle, but so far
there is a seasonal rainfall deficit
of nearly nine inches. The Na
tional Weather Service predicts
that the drought will continue and
may intensify.
SFWMD reports that water lev-
els in the Everglades Water Con-
servation Area are lower than this
time last year and in 2007. Water
management is faced with the de-
cision to continue to release wa
ter from Lake Okeechobee or not
to release it.
Whenever there is a lack of


becomes too concentrated for the
estuaries on the west coast and its
sea grasses. The salt water intru-
sion is also a problem for west
coast drinking water supplies. To
protect this environment, water
releases from the big lake are
necessary On the other hand, this
water is valuable as irrigation for
farm land production and as a
backup for South Florida's water
supply. Releasing the water sup-
ply during a drought, whether for
the environment or agriculture,
reduces the water level in a natu-
rally shallow lake.
This issue is constantly influ-
enced by the daily height of water
level. If lake levels are too high
during the wet season, there is the
fear that the Herbert Hoover Dike
will be breached and endanger
lake communities. If too much
fresh water is released at this time,
it harms the west coast estuaries

Bluegill, catfish and
bass anglers work
area waters
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Residents
and visitors to Lake Okeechobee
can see that the health of the lake
has improved since the 2008 wet
season and Tropical Storm Fay left
plenty of rainfall. Last fall, full time


residents were able to tell their
winter season friends that wa-
terways were navigable and fish
were discovering the new water.
Catching fish has depended on
how the creatures acclimated to
the new depth and composition of
the water; and the influence of the
weather, time of day, and moon
cycle.
The average sport fisherman
sometimes relies on trial and er-
ror, and sometimes luck.
Glades County borders the
west bank of Lake Okeechobee, a


recreational and sport fishing body
of water which is the second larg-
est fresh water lake in the United
States.
The county also offers fish-
ing spots on the rim canal of the
Hoover Dike, the Caloosahatchee
River, Fisheating Creek, and nu-
merous canals.
Mickey's Bait and Tackle Shop
in Moore Haven is just off U.S. 27.
Visitors can find David Dannen-
hauer there.
He relates what he has recently
learned from novice and experi-


enced anglers.
"Bass fishing is fairly good," he
said.
Mr. Dannenhauer mentioned
that some success has been seen
at the Monkey Box and around the
lake on outside weedlines.
He has seen bass fishermen
use trick worms, frogs, flapping
shads and skinny dippers.
Bluegill fishing is excellent right
now at the north shore, in the rim
canal, at Uncle Joe's cut and in the

Port LaBelle Marina finalizes land change


Port LaBelle Marina, Inc. announced
today that their application for land use
change has been approved and finalized
by settlement agreement between Glades
County and the state Department of Com-
munity Affairs (DCA).
"After over three and one half years, we
have finally reached a conclusion with the
DCA", said Cliff Miller ofWestGlades Consult-
ing Service, agent for the owner. "Upon final
execution of a settlement agreement be-
tween the County and the DCA, the land use
classification for the 96 acres has changed
from a designation of Agricultural/Open to
Transitional ," he continued.


This change in designation allows the
Marina to have up to 7 units per acre of resi-
dential housing and over 100,000 sq. ft. of
commercial footage permitting the partner-
ship to market the property for future devel-
opment.
The Port LaBelle Marina is located ap-
proximately 2.5 miles east of the City of La
Belle and is comprised of two basins of ap-
proximately 20 acres with 100 wet slips and
seventy acres of surrounding acreage.
"It's been a long time coming", said Wal-
ter Ferguson, vice-president of the Marina,
"but we're pleased to come to a settlement
with the state.

Belle Glade and Pahokee's new boxing champions


Local athletes represent
the Glades with fine
showmanship; bring back
titles

By Gerard Michael
Last Saturday, Palm Beach County was
action-packed when boxers from many
different parts of Florida came to the West
Jupiter Recreation Center to compete in the
Florida Golden Gloves finals and the Florida
Jr. Olympics.
In the Golden Gloves finals, Verbain Cur-
ry from Belle Glade was victorious against
Malcom Stimphill in a hard-fought Florida
Golden Gloves championship bout.
Curry won the championship via unani-
mous decision.
Seventeen-year-old Curry has been a
member of the Palm Beach County Athletic
League boxing team for over six years and is
a senior at Glades Central High School.
He has been a role model for youth both
in school and in sports. Curry is a success
both academically and athletically.
He gives credit for his success to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office for support-
i,,. i ..... .. ... ii .. i unteer
when he walked into the Belle Glade PAL
Center in 2003.
When asked to comment on his recent
accomplishment, Curry in his humble way
said, "Thank you very much to all the people
who have made a difference to me. Thank
you Coach Willie, Sergeant Flynn, Deputy
Jackson and Deputy Mike LeStrange."
In his journey forward, Curry will be
competing for the National Golden Gloves
title in Salt Lake City, Utah, next month.
Coach Wiggins said he is so proud of Ver-
bain's accomplishments.
Just prior to Curry's win, Pahokee's 13-
year-old Trent Laidler, who is a student at


Pahokee Middle High
School, won the
Florida Junior Olym-
pic boxing champi-
onship by winning a
unanimous decision
against Tomas Avila.
Laidler is the first
Florida state cham-
pion from the new
Pahokee PBSO PAL
Boxing program that
started in May 2008.
The PAL gym opened
as a result of the
collaborative effort
of Captain Jeffery
Lindskoog, Lt. Rey
Alonso, and Pahokee
Parks and Recreation
Director Herb Craw-
ford.
Deputy LeStrange,
who volunteers as
a coach 20 hours a Coach Willie Wigg

product of hard work
and God given talent.
Coaches LeStrange and Wiggins have the
Belle Glade and Pahokee PAL boxing teams
train together monthly. Both of the volun-
teers feel their teams bring out the best in
each other and are unstoppable when they
compete against other Florida teams.
LeStrange said, "Belle Glade and Paho-
kee have some of the best kids anywhere.
I am especially proud of our boxer Deonte
Adams. Adams was our Junior Olympic run-
ner-up. His match was very close and the
decision could have gone either way. Truth-
fully, I feel Deonte won," he said. "Deonte is
doing well in school. He is respectful, and a
wonderful kid to coach."
Laidler will now advance to the regional
Junior Olympics in Orangeburg, S.C.

Trent Laidler is one of the many outstanding athletes that have come through

PALMDALE, Fla. -With much of Florida
under near-historic drought conditions,
landscape plants face a severe threat. Ex-
perts advise that, in addition to careful
watering schedules, homeowners utilize
mulch as part of a plant-protection strat-

months, most Florida landscape plants are
tremendously stressed," said Alan Shaffer
vice president of sales and marketing for
7L Brands LLC, a producer of sustainable
mulch. "A layer of mulch can be a literal
lifesaver."
For starters, organic mulch helps plants
retain what little moisturereemains in the
soil. "Even though there's been next to no
precipitation, plants and soil lose moisture
toevaporatio., i ,ii i,,. ,. the
day," Shaffer .I1 ..... i. I , ..-ices
that moisture loss in a big way."
In the same way that mulch keeps
moisture from getting out, it keeps other
things from getting in. "We're starting to
get to the time of year where the sun can
beat down pretty hard," Shaffer said. "Es-
pecially when they're dry, plant roots can
suffer from temperature extremes. Mulch
is a great natural insulator and protector of
root systems."
A good mulching strategy also protects
landscape plants from competition. "Most
people don't like weeds because they're
unsightly," Shaffer added. "What they
don't realize is that weeds are also steal-
ing water from the desirable plants. Mulch
helps to limit weeds' growth and spread,
which means the limited water supply hy-
i,, i,. ,I.1, i- and needles fall on
the ground to protect and build up the soil.
Mulch provides the same protective ben-
efits in man-made landscapes.
Some mulch application pointers:
*Weed and water before applying your
mulch.
*Apply a layer about 4 inches deep.
Less is good for finer mulch; more is good
for coarser mulch. If you're buying your
mulch in garden-store bags, figure that a


bag of it should cover an area about the
same length and width as the bag.
*Consider mulching under trees, all the
way out to their drip line to limit competi-
tion for water and nutrients and mimic the
way they grow in nature.
*Use environmentally sensitive mulch.
Florida cypress trees are a treasure; don't
contribute to the destruction of cypress
wetlands for landscape convenience.
7L Brands, a division of Lykes Bros. Inc.,
manufactures a line of truly sustainable eu-
calyptus mulch as the perfect environmen-
tally friendly alternative to cypress mulch.
Eucalyptus regenerates from the stump,
matures quickly and can be harvested four
times over 25-30 years. All mulch produced
at the plant is 100 percent pure virgin wood,
free of any construction, demolition, pallet
or other waste-wood materials.
Recently, the company introduced an
aged heartwood eucalyptus mulch. It has
an all natural, rich, earthy red tone without
a chemical color additive.
7L Brand's new mulch manufacturing
facility has provided jobs for staff living in
Lee, Hendry, Glades and Highland coun-
ties.
Lykes Bros. Inc. was founded in Florida
by seven brothers more than 100 years
ago on the core values of unity, hard work,
stewardship, reinvestment in growth and
diversification of business. Historically the
company has managed a wide range of
businesses from shipping to banking while
maintaining a strong focus on its agricul-
tural lands in Glades and Highlands coun-
ties.
The company continues to demonstrate
its entrepreneurial spirit with recent moves
into renewable fuel crops and natural re-
sources management.
The addition of a sustainable mulch
product adds value to an already strong
landscape operation focused on sod and
native landscape trees. The company's
mission is to assure quality in its products
and services, stewardship of its land assets
and community involvement. For more in-

What are you willing to do for
$10,000,000?
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There is a fierce battle going on for
America's soul, and it's not between left
and right or black and white. It's between
the worship of mammon and God. As a na-
tion, we're in love with things, and those
things are becoming a substitute for healthy
relationships and moral values.
Some time back, researchers asked
Americans, "What are you willing to do for
$10,000,000?" The answers form an inter-
esting picture of our changing values. 25%
would abandon their entire family. 25%
would abandon their church. 23% would
become prostitutes for a week or more. 16%
would give up their American citizenship.
16% would leave their spouses.10% would
withhold testimony and let a murderer go
free. 7% would kill a stranger. 3% would put
their children up for adoption.
In times like these, we need people who
will stand in the gap on our behalf. We
need saints.
Who are the saints? How many can you
name? Saint Peter? Saint Stephen? Saints
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John? Saint Paul?
How about Saint Francis of Assissi or Saint
Augustine? One of my favorites is Saint
Barnabas, because his name means, "Son
of Encouragement".
What is it that makes a saint in the first
place? Is it personal virtue and discipline?
Or is it concern for the poor and the out-
cast? Is a saint pious and austere? Or is a
saint merry and outgoing? We have had ex-
amples throughout history of both.
The Roman Catholic Church has a long
list of those who have been canonized -
usually some two hundred years after their
deaths, and after a careful scrutiny of their
lives, work, and continuing influence. Even
with all of this, I doubt that we could get
together as Christians on a list of the top ten
saints, especially if we omitted the original
twelve Apostles.
According to the New Testament, the
saints are not a select group of persons with
haloes around their heads. They are simply
the members of the Christian fellowship,
men and women who live by faith in Jesus
Christ and in whose lives the Holy Spirit is
at work.
A saint leaves the world a better place
because he or she has been here. I love
the way Frederick Beuchner once put it,


"In his holy flirtation with the world, God
occasionally drops a handkerchief. These
handkerchiefs are called saints."
A saint doesn't have to go to Calcutta
like Mother Teresa, or Africa like Albert Sch-
weitzer. But neither are they a part of the
"Me" generation. They take life seriously,
but not themselves. They know that life is
too short to sit around and fret over little
things.
A saint is an important part of his or
her church. An important part of his or her
community. This points out the fact, how-
ever, that we too should be candidates for
sainthood.
A common day saint's faithfulness in
service, sacrificial giving, and loving devo-
tion has formative influence on lives around
them and provide open channels of oppor-
tunity for service.
Let us, then, resolve to take the high
road with our lives, the saintly road. Let
us dare lay claim to our heritage as God's
children. Let us not be afraid or ashamed
to join Abraham and all the saints of all the
ages in launching out toward the land God
has promised we can possess.
As Easter approaches, "Let us fix our
eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of
our faith, who for the joy set before him
endured the cross, scorning its shame, and
sat down at the right hand of the throne of
God." (Hebrews 12:2)

"Easter" is over... But!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
In the usual sense of things "Easter" is
over for 2009. The special Sunday will have
been celebrated and the new clothes will
have been worn; time to think about the
next holiday.
The faithful should have been reminded
of why the Sunday is special- the Resurrec-
tion and it's promise for us all. What is spe-
cial about Sunday anyway? Some would re-
call the commandment to "remember the
Sabbath, to keep it holly (Exodus 20:8)" as
did the spiritual ancestors of the Christians,
and insist that the last day of the week, Sat-
urday, in modern terms is to be set aside.
The Lord and His followers were ac-
cused by the Pharisees of "working on the
Sabbath (Mark 2:23ff)) and Jesus reminds
them that "The Sabbath is made for man,
not man for the Sabbath (v.27).'
He would heal on the Sabbath. Jesus


asks His detractors -which of them, if they
had an ox or a donkey fall into a well, would
not pull it out on the Sabbath? (Luke 14:5)
and they could not answer Him. Sabbath"
is akin to "seventh" and is a means that we
return to God a "seventh", resting and re-
freshing. We, who are made in His image,
take what He took and "keep it holy." Why,
then, Sunday?
Early Christians were from Hebraic tra-
ditions and they would worship on Satur-
day, as was their custom. As they became
Christians, they would keep the celebration
of Sunday, following their Old Testament
worship that ended Saturday night and go
into Christian worship Sunday morning.
What was special about Sunday and not
any other day?
Sunday is Resurrection Day. Eacj Sim-
day is a recollection of Easter. Each Sunday
is the day most appropriately set aside for
worship because it commemorates the
greatest event known to humanity Easter
Day. That is what Jesus' disciples did. As the
faith spread and people from all religious
backgrounds became followers, the neces-
sity in celebrating on Saturday ceased and
celebrations were on the chosen Sabbath,
the commemoration of Resurrection Day.
Today, we celebrate Sundays because it
is a commemoration of Easter,: Resurrec-
tion Day and each Sunday is an "Easter" in
its' own right.
Easter, in fact, is not over; it is a weekly
celebration and not just once a year. Faithful
people attend Church on this Resurrection
Day for this reason.
At the heart of their worship is the Eas-
ter message; The Lord arose and overcame
death,, He promised that we would be with
Him, and our worship is in homage to the
One who gives us life eternal. That's what
Sunday is about; that's what Easter is about.
Easter celebrations have not ended; they go
on and on as they should and we celebrate
them in thanksgiving as we should, too.
May we do so this coming "Easter Sunday"
and all of the Sundays that follow.

Why we need the Lord
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Why will men reject the Lord? Why will
they refuse to give Him His rightful place in
their lives? Why are we so hesitant to give
Him all our lives? Oh how we need the
Lord!
Our SOULS need the Lord for SALVA-


TION. Under the painful condemnation of
Almighty God, man has one and only one
hope of release the Lord Himself. If he
rejects Him all hope of salvation has been
forfeited. But, praise God for the open door
of salvation and for the "whosoever will"
invitation extended! As we read God's just
condemnation of our souls, how convicted
we stand before Him! Not a mouth of retali-
ation is opened. God is right. Yes, we need
the Lord for salvation.
Our LIVES need the Lord for TRANS-
FORMATION. Every year that we were in
sin, our moral nature and our character
became more perverted and steeped in the
ways of the world. How far short we have
fallen of the glory of God! When we decide
to do right, it is a long and hard battle to
throw off the yoke and dominion of sin.
Truly, we are "babes" and not giants
when we accept the Lord. We need the Lord
for spiritual growth. Only Christ can make
us what we ought to be. But, oh the power
and the mightiness of His grace manifested
in a yielded life! Humility displaces pride;
tenderness displaces courseness; piety dis-
places prodigality; courage displaces fear.
Oh the wretchedness of our lives without
His transforming power! Yes, we need the
Lord for transformation.
Our HEARTS need the Lord for COM-
PANIONSHIP. "Oh the glory of His presence!
Oh the beauty of His face! I am His, and His
forever: He has won me by His grace!" This
is the song of every true Christian's heart.
Leaning on Jesus, "What a fellowship!
What a joy divine!"
There is comfort in times of sorrow;
strength in time of weakness; peace in time
of trouble; hope in time of seeming defeat;
light in time of darkness; help for every
need, and grace for every trial. No one can
go along without Him easily. In a world of
adversity, strife, and temptations, we need
the Lord for companionship.
How I love that old hymn "I Need Thee
Every Hour." Its words are so true. We need
the Lord in life. We need Him in death. And
we need Him in judgment.
If we have gone "all the way" with Him,
we know that He will go "all the way" with
us. The salvation accepted here will be fully
realized in glory. The transformation of life
done here will be much appreciated there.
And the companionship begun here will
become more precious and intimate there,
and it, with its blessings, will know no end.

Glades County Woman's Club installs new officers


Installation of officers of the Glades Coun-
ty Woman's Club, which is customarily held
in May, was changed to the April meeting
in order to allow the ladies who are "snow
birds" to enjoy the dinner meeting before
they return to their homes "up north". The
club also veered from tradition by holding
the installation dinner at a member's home
instead of a local restaurant. Following
prayer and flag salute led by Chaplain, Di-
anne Tillery, Kandi Snow served a sumptu-
ous banquet of shrimp cocktails, Jambalaya,
lasagna, and all the trimmings!
Barbara Brown, president, introduced
three prospective members. She then had


each club member introduce themselves,
and give a little autobiographical sketch. Ms.
Brown informed the prospective members
of the goals and activities of the club. As she
concluded their initiation, June Scott, Pat
Ringstaff and Donna Storter-Long were each
presented with a hand-painted pot holding
the club's flower, a marigold plant. She also
gave each new member a 2008-2009 club
yearbook, and the "Seventy-Five Year Histo-
ry of the Woman's Club". This history book
was compiled by a former president, Marga-
ret Snyder. It was noted that in seven years,
the Woman's Club will be 100 years old, and
our history will need to be updated.


The club voted to again donate to the
Moore Haven Scholarship Foundation. This
is allows graduating seniors assistance with
their college expenses. In addition, GCWC's
Scholarship Committee is working diligently
to determine recipients of the club's scholar-
ships for the coming year.
Margaret Brown, installing officer, used
a unique theme of "doing what I do best,
supervising cooking", as she led each new
officer through an explanation of their du-
ties in her pretend kitchen. She installed
Kacie Swaford as corresponding secretary,
Gem Burleson as recording secretary, Me-
gan Shepherd as treasurer, Patt Mason as
chef-in-training (vice-president), and Anne


Coffey, as the new head chef (president) for
the coming year. She presented each new
officer, also, with marigold plants in hand
painted pots.
Ms. Brown thanked the club for then* ef-
forts, and presented each of her officers with
a gift for their support during the year. Notes
to June Morningstar, Carol Butler and Rhoda
Planty, were signed by all the club mem-
bers. These will be enclosed in a "Thinking
of You" card, as they are under the weather,
and could not attend. We wish them well,
and look forward to seeing them next year!
The last meeting of the club year will be
held at the library on May 14t at 7 p.m.

A Kind of Pandora's Box in the New World


By Butch Wilson
The Clewiston Museum
Winter's icy breath blew across the
lone, desolate village, rattling and shaking
the palmetto clad shelters with gusting, gale
force winds.
The occupants weren't awakened by the
disturbance because an earlier, far sinister
chill, had already beckoned the cold, icy
breath of death.
An invisible foe had silently stalked and
killed the entire village population.
This invisible killer traveled thousands of
miles using man as its host to cross the vast
Atlantic Ocean.
Death heralded its triumphant landfall in
the New World, as it shadowed the Spanish
Conquistadors, whose conquest took them
across the Caribbean Islands, then to Cen-
tral and South America.
The invisible killer conquered the great
Aztec and Mayan Empires in Mexico and
Peru, after cold Spanish Toledo steel and
gunpowder had failed.
The killer's dark, ominous journey in
North America began on the eastern shores
of the Atlantic Ocean.
A trail of human suffering and carnage
was left in its wake as it moved painfully
westward to the Pacific Ocean.
What was this instrument of death that
killed millions of Native Americans?
It is time to take "A Walk in the Past"
and read about Pandora's Box in the New
World.
In Greek Mythology, a woman called
Pandora was given a large jar and instruct-
ed by the Greek God, Zeus, to never open
the jar.
She was also given the gift of curiosity
and eventually succumbed to its charms
and opened the jar.


All the evils, ills and diseases escaped
from the jar to forever plague mankind.
The Europeans symbolically brought
Pandora's Box to the New World and un-
knowingly released many diseases on the
Native Americans.
The results were so horrendous that Ar-
cheologists and Historians are still attempt
ing to bridge and interpret the gaps and
missing links of past Native American cul-
tures that were erased or severely impacted
by these diseases.
The New World was free of smallpox,
typhus, cholera, and measles before the Eu-
ropeans arrived.
These deadly diseases were accidentally
introduced by Europeans, who unknow-
ingly served as hosts to these diseases,
which swept across Central America, South
America and North America, killing millions
of Native Americans.
Some Historians estimate that 90% of the
indigenous people of the Americans died.
In 1519, Cortez invaded Mexico with a
small Spanish army and a silent ally.
It was an infectious disease that the Az-
tecs and other Native Americans had no im-
munity to.
In 1520, Cortez entered Tenochtitlan,
which is present day Mexico City, and found
half of the inhabitants infected with small-
pox.
The Spanish army had been in Mexico
for only one year, and nearly half the Aztec
population had died in the first epidemic.
Eleven years later, a second epidemic
devastated Mexico.
By 1595, over 18 million people had died
of smallpox, mumps, measles and other
European diseases.
The European diseases followed the
Spanish when they started settling La Flor-
ida.


Epidemics hit the Spanish missions in
North Florida in 1595, 1612-1617, 1649-50,
and 1655-56, devastating the local Native
American populations.
The Timucua and Apalachee Indian Na-
tions had dominated North Florida before
the Spanish invaded their homelands.
They resisted change and remained
powerful, even after the Spanish estab-
lished settlements and missions in their ter-
ritories.
However, they couldn't resist the epi-
demics that struck and tore their Indian Na-
tions into remnants.
Their once, large populations were
decimated and reduced to small pockets
of Indians that were scattered across North
Florida.
The balance of power that formally ex-
isted between the Indians and the Spanish,
now shifted to the Spanish.
The epidemics were slower reaching
South Florida.
Spanish documents written as late as
1697, reported healthy Calusa populations.
These documents probably indicate oth-
er Indian Nations living in South Florida also
had healthy populations.
In my research, I found no information
on epidemics occurring in South Florida
during the 1500s or 1600s.
Spanish contact with the South Florida
Indian Nations was kept to a minimum
because the Spanish failed to establish per-
manent settlements or missions in South
Florida.
The other point of contact was the Span-
ish castaways, who were sometimes kept
as slaves by the Indians.
Apparently, none of the castaways car-
ried diseases during this time period, so
the South Florida Indians were spared the
horrible epidemics that occurred in North


Florida.
South Florida's isolation period ended
when the "War of the Spanish Succession"
started in Europe in 1701.
This war spread to North America and
was called "Queen Anne's War." Spain and
England were enemies, so war broke out
on the Florida frontier.
British militia and Indian allies from
South Carolina invaded North Florida, at-
tacking the Spanish settlements.
The English invasion advanced south to
the Florida Keys.
Historians believe it was the English in-
vasion that exposed South Florida Indians
to European diseases.
The South Florida Indian Nations were
reduced in number and became victims to
another problem slavery.
There will be more "Tale Tales" in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the English and Indian allies destroy the
Florida Indian Nations.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Con-
tact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.

Jesus Jelly Bean bag
Ms Brenda's Sunday School Class told the congregation the meaning of the
Jesus Jelly Bean Bags. Red is for the blood He gave; Green is for the grass
He made; Yellow is for the sun so bright; Orange is for the edge of night;
Black is for the sins that were made; White is for the grace He gave; Purple is
for the hour of sorrow; Pink is for the new tomorrow. A bag full of jelly beans
colorful and sweet is a prayer is a promise is an Easter treat! Each person
received their own Jesus Jelly Bean Bag.

coach, Steve Petti, for that matter. Petti was just as giddy as his athletes bias@newzap.com.
After an intense, 90-minute practice on when talking about tomorrow's meet, but
the Terrier Field track this past Tuesday af-
ternoon, Blackmon was all smiles when
talking about what he expects his team to
accomplish this week.
"Coach Petti has pushed us past the limit
each day we've been at practice," Blackmon
said, with a proud look on his face as he sat
in a folding chair after practice.
"We've been running longer at medium
speed, which helps us with our endur-
ance."
That should be of a significant help come
tomorrow, when the track program takes a
two-hour bus ride to St. John Neumann in
Naples.
Blackmon, who reportedly ran his per-
sonal bests this season in the 100 meter
(10.7 seconds Moore Haven Tri-Meet) and
200 meter races (22.7 Moore Haven Tri-

teammates completed six sets of 300 meter

Those dreams may seem bold, but
what's on his mind more than anything right
now is his team.
If you get a chance to talk to any of the
Moore Haven boys, it's immediately appar-
ent that the team exhibits a close bond, with
a will to win every team meet they partici-
pate in.
Of Moore Haven's seven meets thus far,
the only one that the boys didn't win outright
was the Apr. 3 Charlotte Invitational, which
the Charlotte boys, the host school, won.
Moore Haven's boys team came in fifth
out of 12 teams, with programs from Class
IA to Class 4A competing at the meet.
Nontheless, they expect to take home a
couple of titles that should be theirs easily,
Blackmon believes.
"I know we're gonna have a better '
chance at winning both the districts and re- I
gionals this year than last," Blackmon said,
noting that Moore Haven's boys finished
third last season in both the District 12-tA
and the Region 3 IA track team champion
ships, respectively
Over on the girls end, Tiara Perkins, a se- I1|.
nior, was happy to talk about how the girls -
have made strides throughout the season. 1
Though the girls may not be as deep as INI/Naji Tobias
last year, they have still proven to be respect- Moore Haven Terriers junior Samuel 'Peanut' Cooper Jr. looks to capture gold in
able, as evidenced by the team's sixth-place the discus at tomorrow's District 12-1A track championships.

by diluting the salt water, adding unwanted
nutrients and fostering algae bloom.
West Palm Beach on the east coast also
depends on water releases to supplement its
drinking water.
According to SFWMD officials, the deci-
sion to release or not release water from
Lake Okeechobee creates a dilemma. Mak-
ing decisions is risky considering how pre-
cious fresh water is during a drought. The
final decision rests in the lap of the United
States Army Corps of Engineers.
Lake communities, retail businesses,
sport fishermen and mariners also feel the
effect of Lake Okeechobee water levels. In
July 2007, when lake levels where below

chose to cross the Okeechobee Waterway,
they did so at their own risk; and to avoid un-
chartered waters. The rim canal was closed
to navigation.
At this time of extreme drought, small
boats and bass boats had no access to the
lake. When the water first started to recede,
it made navigation treacherous to fishermen
and sight-seers on the west bank by Glades
County where there are many marshes and
shallow bays. There are also other shallow
areas across the entire lake at various cuts,
channels, islands and communities.
"The lake was inaccessible to the aver-
age fisherman," said David Dannenhauer, a


Moore Haven bait and tackle shop owner.
He mentioned that boaters with small
boats begin to worry when the lake level
goes down to 11.5 feet. There are times
when underwater debris and submerged
trees can damage props, motors or boat
hulls, if the water gets low.
Larger boats and yachts can still navigate
through the deeper channels of the Okeecho-
bee Waterway from Stuart to Fort Myers, at
even lower levels. However, continuation of
a severe drought could put them at risk and
halt navigation to either coast, like it did in
July 2007.
Lake residents and realtors also believe
that drastically low lake levels affect the
value of real estate or a business' decision
to not open or re-locate to communities
around Lake Okeechobee. Bone dry canals,
rocky boat ramps and a recessed shore line
were a dramatic sight in 2007.
Property owners in Buckhead Ridge were
devastated by the spring of 2007. Lake ac-
cess became a serious problem and an
eyesore, not only in Buckhead Ridge, but in
Lakeport and Moore Haven as well. That is
why the cleanup of the Pearce Canal and the
old Moore Haven Canal became economic
and political issues.
Glades County residents near the west
bank were delighted when Tropical Storm
Fay and the wet season drenched the area
and revived the lake. Last November, full
time residents were able to tell their winter-
time buddies to come on down. People in
Buckhead Ridge are thrilled that Pearce Ca-
nal cleanup has begun, and Glades County


iiN/Nena uoian
Two boats enter the Moore Haven Lock which connects Lake Okeechobee with
the Caloosahatchee River. Water levels in the lake are adequate for navigation
now. In July 2007, the Corps of Engineers closed navigation in the rim canal due
to drought conditions and cautioned boaters that they can cross the Okeecho-
bee Waterway, but at their own risk.


looks forward to the cleanup of the old
Moore Haven Canal and its recreation addi-
tion. The lake level and navigable waterways
matter a great deal to people here.
The Corps of Engineers began water re-
leases, April 11, when the daily water level
was about 11.9 feet.

Catfishing has been very good in the Ca-

near Uncle Joe's, according to Mr. Dannen-
hauer. Try using night crawlers, chicken liver
and shiners or shad cut into bait.
Snook are in season and anglers are do-
ing very well at the Ortona Lock whenever
the water is running.
Snook fishing is fair to good at the Moore
Haven Lock when the water is running. Bait
type depends on the time of day.
A few crappy, or speckled perch, have
been caught but action is sporadic.
Softshell turtle are in season and harvest
is going fairly well.
Frogging is expected to go well if the lake
level does not recede too low. Anglers report
large numbers of tadpoles and other fry in
the lake.
Turkey hunting had a good season in the
south zone and has recently ended, but will
continue in the central and north zone.
It is advised that hunters consult the FWC
hunting regulations for correct details.
Oscar, cichlid and bass fishing has been
very good in the Everglades if anglers are
willing to travel there.

largemouth bass fry into Lake Okeechobee
waters from Cody's Cove to First Point.
They are pure Florida strain bass without
northern genes. Fish populations had start-
ed to decline and the stocking is an effort to
improve the lake's fishery.
If things go well, Moonshine Bay may be
stocked next year.
