By Nena Bolan Th

BRIGHTON -- The Seminole
Tribe of Florida is loyal to veter-
ans. Their men and women who
have served in the Armed Forces
are never forgotten. Recently, the
Florida Seminole Veterans Build-
ing was designed in the shape of a
military five-point star. It was built
in Brighton and the grand open-
ing occurred May 28.
The impressive structure will
serve as a multi-purpose center
for the Seminole Tribe of Florida
and as a meeting place for veter-
ans. The Florida Seminole Veter-
ans Building has a circular shaped
auditorium with circular stage.
Bronze statues were created by
the Cooley family, and depict
Seminole veterans of the past and
present. Also, bronze sculptures
represent each branch of the
United States Armed Forces.

Seat belt use and

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Members
of the community traffic safety
team (CTST) discussed the new
perspective of the seat belt law that
begins on June 30. According to
Debra Stallings, FDOT/CTST coor-
dinator, Florida has had a seat belt
law for a very long time.
The change came about through
the legislature whereby it is now a
primary law. Previously, a driver
could be given a citation if people
in the vehicle were not wearing
seat belts; but only after they were
stopped for another infraction. The
fact that it is now primary means
the driver can be stopped solely for
not using seat belts.
The team examined the low
percentage of seat belt use among
local drivers. It was brought out
that automobile insurance com-
panies will certainly count that
against drivers if they see that seat
belts were not in use when an ac-

VFW to


retire flags


at Flag Day


ceremony

Flag Day, June 14, an annual observance
to celebrate the flag, is the anniversary of
the official adoption of the american flag in
1777. Displaying the flag is a sign of patrio-
tism and national pride and the retirement of
the flag is observed by burning.
On June 14, at noon, the Veterans of For-
eign Wars Post 4185 in Clewiston will have
the annual flag burning ceremony.
If your flag is worn, torn or discolored it
should be taken down and properly retired.
You can drop it off at the vfw post located at
501 s. Francisco st. Please join us on June
14.
The VFW is committed to teaching our
youth what it means to be an american, pro-
moting patriotism and showing by example
how everyone should honor our veterans
who have and who now serve to preserve
our freedoms.


Florida's Heartland Rural Economic De-
velopment Initiative (FHREDI) convened a
regional meeting to discuss application for a
$100 million in American Recovery and Re-
investment Act funds under the Broadband
Technology Opportunities Program. The
U.S. Congress has appropriated $7.2 billion
to establish the program. It is intended to
bring broadband access to those areas of the
country that are un-served or underserved.
FHREDI is leading the regional effort to
make an application. An action plan was
formulated and will be available for review
early next week. Many volunteers stepped
forward to help guide the process. A discus-
sion of committees needed included finan-
cial resources, ways and means, communi-
cations, public relations and grant writing
and review. Regional internet and broad-
band providers immediately formed a tech-

nology committee to bring their resources
and knowledge to the project.
Linda Fuchs, Project Manager, Florida Of-
fice of Economy Recovery said that this pro-
gram will be transformational and similar to
the electrification of rural America and the
building of the interstate highway system. A
handout was provided giving an overview of
the grant opportunities and what the State
is doing to assist. She emphasized that the
projects must be sustainable. "The last thing
anyone wants to do is build broadband to
nowhere," said Fuchs.
Phil Halstead, CEO of Florida LamdaRail,
a fiber-optic network linking Florida's re-
search institutions facilitated the fast moving
meeting. Bridget Merrill, Vice President of
Targeted Opportunities for Enterprise Flori-
da attended and answered questions about
the grant opportunity. Representatives from


government, health care, emergency man-
agement, public safety, defense, libraries,
utilities and service providers throughout the
region also attended the meeting.
A Broadband Feasibility Study completed
by FHREDI in 2007, demonstrated that most
of the region is underserved or un-served.
For instance, Indian River State College has
a 10 gigabyte feed to their campus in Ft.
Pierce, but only has a 6 megabyte feed to
their Okeechobee campus because the ser-
vice is not available. Costs are the same, but
it limits their ability to provide quality online
education in the FHREDI region. Other uses
for increased bandwidth include sharing of
medical records such as echo cardiograms
and other digital data among physicians and
hospitals. With broadband, personal medi-
cal records can be placed on the internet for
true portability.

Teen



Driver



Challenge

Sheriff Stuart Whiddon would like to
announce that the Glades County Sheriff's
Office will be conducting the "Teen Driver
Challenge" for the young adults of Glades
County. To participate in the course you
must have a valid driver's license and a
vehicle to drive including valid insurance.
This course is a two day event. The first
day will be on June 11 from 4 p.m. to 8
p.m. at the Glades County Sheriff's Office
and the second day of training will be on
June 13 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Alvin
Ward Sr. boat ramp.
The Teen Driver Challenge is a course
designed to give young adults the confi-
dence in driving both defensively and of-
fensively by using classroom instruction
and a hands on driving approach. The
course is very safe and controlled with
instructors present at all times. Because
they use their own vehicles, the students
will learn about their vehicle and how
their vehicle operates within the course.
This course is recognized by most insur
ance companies for discounted rates.
To participate, you must pre-register by
contacting our Victim Advocate Summer
Odom at 863-946-1600 ext. 2116. This is
a great program and I would encourage
parents to allow their children to partici-


First Responder of the Year


Glades County Deputy County Manager
for Public Safety Bob Jones receives Gover-
nor's Hurricane Conference Award for "First
Responder of the Year." Bob Jones was
nominated by Glades County Emergency
Management due to the outstanding job he
does.
Bob Jones is a working Director who
handles the day to day issues while also get-
ting out in the field on a daily basis. When
any disaster threatens or occurs no matter
what time of day or night he is out there,
on scene, working! He doesn't hesitate to
help put up sandbags to save residences
from flood waters or driving a single tarp
across our 773.64 square mile county, to an
outlying area, to assist a family in need after
Tropical Storm Fay. This to some would be


an unthinkable task, but to him it would be
unthinkable not to.
He was recently acknowledged by our
County Commissioners for his hard work
and going above and beyond in every situ-
ation, by being appointed Deputy County
Manager, though even with a new title he
prefers to get out in the field and get his
hands dirty. Everyone within and outside
of Glades County Public Safety admires and
respects him for his dedication and hard
work.
A great example of not only what a Di-
rector should be but, what every responder
should strive to be. He doesn't stay behind
his desk, he's on scene no matter how big
or small the task. If it needs to be done he'll
make sure it's done and done right.

It's That Time of Season: Mosquito Season


By Pat Dobbins

Hendry & Glades Counties Now that
the rains seem to visit us on a regular basis,
it's time to start thinking about mosquitoes.
It's so important for you to protect your
self and your family from mosquito-borne
diseases.
Mosquitoes can carry West Nile virus in-
fection, St. Louis Encephalitis, and Eastern
Equine Encephalitis.
If infected, most people that become ill
will have mild symptoms including head-
ache, fever, dizziness, and fatigue, but other
severe symptoms are also possible.
Mosquito-diseases can cause serious ill-
nesses and sometimes death in people of
any age, but children and those over 50 are
at greatest risk for severe disease.
Avoiding mosquito bites is the best way
to prevent disease. Please remember the 5
D's:
Dusk and Dawn Avoid being outdoors
when mosquitoes are seeking blood.
Dress Wear clothing that covers most
of your skin.
DEET When the potential exists for ex-
posure to mosquitoes, repellents containing
up to 30 percent DEET are recommended.
Oil of lemon eucalyptus can also be effec-
tive.


Drainage Check around your home to
rid the area of standing water, where mos-
quitoes lay eggs.
Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions carefully for
the approved usage before applying a repel-
lent.
In protecting children, read label instruc-
tions to be sure the repellent is appropriate.
DEET is not recommended on children
younger than 2 months old.
Oil of lemon eucalyptus should not be
used on children less than 3 years old.
Infants should be kept indoors or mos-
quito netting should be used over carriers
when outside.
Avoid applying repellents to the hands
of children. Adults should apply repellent
first to their own hands and then transfer it
to the child's skin and clothing.
Apply insect repellent to exposed skin or
onto clothing, but not under clothing.
Do not apply repellent to the eyes or
mouth, cuts, wounds, or irritated skin.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breeding
Sites
Remove water in old tires, buckets, gar-
bage cans, and other containers where wa-
ter collects.
Check clogged gutters and flat roofs that
may have poor drainage.


Fill in holes or dips in the ground that
collect water.
Level the ground around your home so
water can run off.
Empty birdbaths, water bowls, plant
pots, and wading pools once or twice a
week.
Store boats upside down or with a cov-
er
Please take action now so that you don't
let mosquitoes take a bite out of your sum-
mer activities!

for the Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments. If you would like to read an

June is Men's Health Month
Hendry & Glades Counties The Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments join
health professionals and citizens of both
counties to recognize June as Men's Health
Month.
The week of Father's Day, June 15 21, is
recognized as National Men's Health Week.
This year's theme is "Awareness-Prevention-
Education-Family."
Please encourage the men and boys in
your life to get regular check ups, medical
advice, and early treatment for any injuries


or diseases.
Even though there have been many ad-
vances in health care over the years, men
still die on average at least five to six years
earlier than women.
The rates are even higher for African
American men.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC), men are almost
twice as likely as women to die of heart dis-
ease and they have higher mortality rates
than women for the top 10 leading causes
of death.
The heightened risk of morbidity, injury
and premature deaths among men is often
referred to as "The Silent Health Crisis" for
men.
If you have any questions regarding
men's health or if you would like additional
information, please contact the Hendry &
Glades County Health Departments at: 863-
674-4041, LaBelle; 863-983-1408, Clewiston;

Edison State buys Community



Christian building for $1.1 million


On June 5, 2009
the Edison State Col-
lege Board of Trustees
unanimously approved
the purchase of the
Community Christian
School (CCS) site in La-
Belle. The purchase in-
cludes the building and
19 acres.
The new center ex-
pands Edison State's
longstanding commit-
ment of service to stu-
dents in Hendry and
Glades counties.
"We are very happy
that the acquisition of
this property will fulfill
a part of the college
master plan," said Dr.
Kenneth Walker, Presi-
dent of Edison State
College. "Education
is an important com-
ponent of economic
development and im-
proving the quality of
life. We look forward to
working with city, coun-
ty, and public school
officials as partners in
developing what will
become the fourth full

support these communities have given to
us over the years," said Dr. Noreen Thomas,
Executive Vice President of Edison State Col-

these students."
Nearly 10 years ago Edison State College
began offering college level courses in the
LaBelle High School. Since that time the
community has asked for a broader variety
of classes and services than the current fa-
cility can provide. The purchase of the CCS
property will allow them to do this.
Dr. Patricia Land will continue to serve as


the President of both the new center in La-
Belle and as the President of Edison State's
Charlotte Campus.
"This is a tremendous day for students
in Hendry and Glades counties," said Land.
"The new facility will allow us to have a tutor-
ing center, a technology lab and more cours-
es offered at a broader range of times."
"We are looking positively to the future
of Community Christian School and Eagles'

Community Christian School Administrator.
"The sale of our current property to Edison

This illustration shows the areas affected by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.


By Dr. Darayes Mobed,
General Surgeon at Hendry Regional
Medical Center
Have you been trying to ignore the tin-
gling or numbness that you've had in your
hand and wrist?
Are you attributing the sharp, piercing
pain that shoots through your wrist and up
your arm as passing cramps?
More than likely, you have carpal tunnel
syndrome, a painful and progressive condi-
tion caused by compression of a key nerve
in the wrist, the Median nerve.
Carpal tunnel is a medical condition
in which the Median nerve, running from
the forearm into the hand, becomes com-
pressed or squeezed at the wrist.
The result may be pain, weakness or
numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating
up the arm.
Although many associate carpal tunnel
syndrome with hours spent working on a
computer keyboard, carpal tunnel can actu-
ally result from a variety of other job tasks,
where the motions of your hands and wrists
are stressed.
A few examples of these include using
power tools, participating in heavy assembly
line work, sewing, etc.
Carpal tunnel symptoms usually start
gradually, with frequent burning, tingling or
itching numbness in the palm of the hands
and fingers, especially around the thumb
and the index finger and middle fingers.
The dominant hand is usually affected
first and produces the most severe pain.
Women are three times more likely to de-
velop carpal tunnel than men, according to
the National Institute of Neurological Disor-
ders and Stroke.
Conditions such as thyroid problems, di-
abetes, obesity and rheumatoid arthritis can


increase the risk of this disorder.
It is important to seek early diagnosis and
treatment to avoid permanent damage of
the Median nerve.
A physician can examine the hands,
arms, shoulders, and neck to determine if
a patient's complaints are related to daily
activities or an underlying disorder such as
carpal tunnel syndrome.
The physician can also use specific tests
to try to produce the symptoms of carpal
tunnel syndrome.
Sometimes, it may be necessary for the
physician to confirm the diagnosis by per-
forming other tests that use electrical activity
(EMG).
In special circumstances, various drugs
can ease the pain and swelling associated
with this condition.
When therapy, exercise, and drugs do
not alleviate the symptoms, surgery may be
recommended.
With tiny cutting tools, the surgeon
would make a small incision at the wrist
and release the compression on the Median
nerve by gently transecting the transverse
carpal ligament.
The small incisions are closed with stitch-
es.
When a patient undergoes carpal tunnel
surgery, he/she usually goes home on the
same day as the surgery and can expect a
quick recovery period.
The pain and numbness may go away
right after surgery, or it may take several
weeks.
If you have any symptoms of carpal tun-
nel syndrome, please seek an evaluation
from a physician.
The treatment is quick and successful.
For additional information regarding car-
pal tunnel syndrome, call 863-983-5026 or
863-675-2356.

Walk in the Past: Creek Indians and Fur Trade


How the Fur Trade shaped
the development of early
Florida history; a historical
credit crisis

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Winter's long months of barrenness gave
way to the infancy of spring time that ush-
ered in like a woman in travail, giving birth
to new life.
Woods and valleys sprang into a thou-
sand new shades of green, while flowers
burst forth, covering the meadows and
swamps in a multitude of bright colors.
The awakening sounds of animals, birds,
and insects celebrating spring's arrival,
echoed across the forest in musical sym-
phonies, as fragrant scents from the many
flowers and shrubs permeated the air like
perfume.
Tall pines and hardwoods accented the
hills and mountains in a variety of shapes
and color, while fleecy, snow white clouds
floated on skies bathed in blues and pur-
ples.
Spring's new masterpiece, painted by the
hand of an invisible artist, unveiled a land-
scape of majestic beauty
Nature's scenic pageantry was broken by
the intrusive sounds of bells, as strangers en-
tered the forest.
Fur traders, hard men tested in battle and
tempered in hardship, rode through the for-
est single-file, leading a long string of pack
horses.
They were the merchants of the forest,
whose livelihoods depended on nature's
bounty.
Leaving the comforts of civilization, the
fur traders had traveled and traversed the
many forest trails for months, trading with
the far flung Creek villages, where guns,
powder, lead and other items were bartered
for the prized deer skins.
The fur season had ended profitably with
three, 50-pound bundles of hides, carefully
loaded on each horse.
They now journeyed east to Charleston,
South Carolina that was hundreds of miles
away, through an untamed wilderness.
Unshaken by the vastness of the land, the
men followed an invisible trail marked only
for the keen eyes of the woodsman.
The legacies of the Mountain Men that
trapped and traded in the far west are still
remembered, but little is known about their
earlier counterparts, who lived on the fron-
tiers of the southeast.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the Creeks and fur traders in the
southeast.
The Indian Nations of different cultures


Photo/rhus.com
An early Creek Indian.
and languages formed federations in Ala-
bama, Georgia and South Carolina.
The primary language and culture of
these federations was Muskogee.
The Muskogee people would later be
called Creek by English and American set-
tlers.
The Creeks (Muskogees) played a big
role in the hide industry that dominated the
southeast during the 1700s.
In the beginning years of the industry the
Creeks traded with the French in Alabama,
Spanish in La Florida, and the English in
South Carolina.
The English would eventually defeat the
French and Spanish, gaining a complete mo-
nopoly on the Creek fur trade.
In the early years, Charleston, South Car-
olina became the primary exporter of hides,
due to its seaport and geographical location,
which was in close proximity to some of the
Indian Nations.
Savannah, Georgia would become the
second largest exporter of hides.
The primary fur trade was deer hides that
were shipped to Englnd and processed
into needed leather goods for the English
people.
The Indians bartered deer hides for guns,
powder, cloth, metal pots and other items
that they couldn't produce.
The Creeks, like other Indian Nations,
soon became dependent on European trade
goods, which forced change in their cul-
ture.
The Indians bartered great numbers of
deer hides for the expensive European trade
goods and soon local deer populations were
quickly decimated for their hides.
Indian hide hbarters were forced to travel
Indian hide hunters were forced to travel


hundreds of miles from their homelands to
collect sufficient hides for muskets, powder
and home comforts enjoyed by the female
gender.
Long-term credit was given freely to the
Indians by fur traders.
The sales pitch: "Buy now, and pay later"
sounds and works well until the bill comes
due.
The Indians found themselves in a credit
dilemma that forced them into the woods
five to six months a year hunting the wily,
white tail deer, so they could pay last year's
debt.
This frontier style of capitalism was fur-
ther complicated by Foreign Policy.
European wars, peace treaties, and eco-
nomics were all part of the political mayhem
that impacted trade-good prices, availability
of supplies, and who traded with the Indi-
an.
These decisions created the old domino
effect, which impacted the Indian's way of
life just as today's foreign policies on crude
oil impact ours.
Creeks, and other Indians living in South
Carolina, allied themselves with the Yama
see Indians during the Yamasee War, which
ended in 1717.
The defeat of the Indian coalition forced
Creeks living in South Carolina to retire south
westward on the Chattahoochee River.
English traders and settlers started calling
the Indians living on the Chattahoochee the
"Lower Creeks" and those on the Coosa and
Tallapoosa above the forks of the Alabama
River the "Upper Creeks."
The end of the Yamassee War brought
peace to the Carolina frontier, but at a cost
to the Fur Industry.
The English fur traders were forced to fol-
low the Creek Indians westward or lose their
business to the French.
Transporting the hides to Charleston now
posed a logistical problem because the dis-
tance was much greater and required more
of the trader's time packing the hides out of
the wilderness to Charleston.
The Creeks had already started moving
into Florida prior to the Yamasee War that
began in 1715 and ended in 1717.
Creeks had taken advantage of "The War
of Spanish Succession" (1701-1714), which
weakened La Florida's Spanish Militia and
Indian Allies.
Additional groups of Creeks now moved
in after the Yamasee War, settling in North
Florida.
The bands of Creek moving into Florida
comprised two groups speaking Muskogee
and Milasuki (Hitchiti) Languages.
Some of these Creeks were already slave
or deer hunting in Florida and familiar with
Florida's geography.
During the early 1700s, these bands of
Creeks were still considered part of the


Creek Confederacy and maintained close
political ties with other Creeks living in Ala-
bama and Georgia.
Eventually large Creek towns resided in
what is now Alachua, Leon, and Levy coun-
ties.
The Creeks living in these towns became
a growing threat to the Spanish and Florida
Indians.
The Spanish called the dangerous Creek
Indians living in Florida "Cimarron," which
translates to "runaway" or "wild people."
It is thought that the English and pioneer
pronunciation of Cimarron was pronounced
as Seminole.
In 1763, the English gained control of
Florida and divided it into two provinces for
administrative purposes East Florida and
West Florida.
St. Augustine was the capital of East
Florida and Pensacola the capital of West
Florida.
Pensacola had an excellent seaport, and
under British rule the city flourished.
Businessmen were quick to take advan-
tage of Pensacola's thriving trade and its
strategic location, which placed it in the cen-
ter of the Creek Confederacy.
The fur trade shifted from Charleston to
Pensacola.
England's acquisition of Florida in 1763,
and its growing fur trade drew additional
Creeks to Florida.
Spanish citizens and many of the remain-
ing Florida Indians didn't feel safe living un-
der British rule.
Years of fighting, slavery and the Creeks,
who were hostile to the Spanish and their
Indian allies, generated a mass exodus.
Most of the Spanish citizens of Florida
and many of the Florida Indians migrated to
Cuba in 1763.
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the Creeks are embroiled in a Civil War and
Seminoles become a separate Indian Nation
in Florida.

$15,000 offered in hunt for Panther shooter


Submitted to INI
A Florida Panther, listed as an endangered species, was discovered dead in
Hendry County from a gunshot wound. A reward is being offered in the search
for the shooter.


A reward of up to $15,200 is being of-
fered by a diverse group of organizations for
information that leads to an arrest and/or a
conviction in the shooting death of a Florida
panther.
The panther was found on April 21, 2009
near the Hendry Correctional Institute on
private property bordering the Big Cypress
National Preserve, in Hendry County, Fla.
The panther is believed to have been shot
within a week prior to its discovery.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)
special agents and Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) investiga-
tors are jointly investigating the case.
There are only about 100 Florida panthers
left in the world.
The Florida panther is protected under
the Endangered Species Act of 1973 (ESA),
which currently lists the species as "endan-
gered."
This means the Florida panther is in dan-

MHES hosts Field Day


On Friday, May 22 Moore Haven Elemen-
tary School held its Field Day, which is an an-
nual event for all the students sponsored by
the PTO. There are different activities for the
students all day such as several waterslides,
and other games, but the highlight for the
older kids is the Softball Tournament.
All the fourth and sixth-grade students
are split into 3 teams per grade and they play
each other in a softball tournament to de-
termine the winner and then that winning
team plays a team that consists of teachers
and staff.
The winning team that day was the 6th


grade team of Mrs. Kell Ahern. Due to rain
the "Championship" game was postponed
until Monday, June 1.
The Championship was a great game
the students took an early lead 4-0 then the
teachers battled back and took the score to
10-4, finally the 6th graders battled back to
bring the score to 10-9 but the teachers held
them off in the end and came out on top!
A lot of the students filled the bleachers to
cheer for the favorites! Even though the stu-
dents did not take down their teachers like
they thought they could a great time was
had by all!

Profile of a graduate


Ashanti Shepherd has
determination

By Naji Tobias and Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- Adults often marvel
at the energy and resiliency of teenagers.
They can hurdle the anguish of adoles-
cence while they emerge from girl into
woman. One graduating senior was able
to juggle academics, sports and survive a
great loss. Her name is Ashanti Shepherd.
She graduated with honors and lettered
in volleyball, baseball and softball; and
was the most valuable player in 2008 vol-
leyball and basketball. Five awards were
handed out to her at a recent sports ban-
quet. Her grade point average at Moore
Haven High School was 3.5 and she took
college classes at Edison State College this
past year.
Ms. Shepherd ranked eighth in a 2009
class of 72 students and received a com-
bined total of $17,000 in scholarships.
At this time she plans to play softball at
Florida A & M University in Tallahassee; or
perhaps enter Chipola College in Marianna
to play softball. She was elected student
council president, and secretary for the Fel-
lowship of Christian Athletes. She joined
the extracurricular clubs Future Voices of
America and the Family Community and
Career Leaders of America.
In 2007, her mother, Barbara Cunning-
ham, passed away at age 41. She was in
class when she heard the grim news.
Ashanti Shepherd commented that she
wanted to make sure that she stayed fo-
cused on school and out of trouble, be-
cause her mother would have wanted it
that way.
"It was hard, but I had a great family and
group of friends to support me through it,"
said Ms. Shepherd.
Her sister and friend, April Cunningham,
is inspired by her ambition and determina-
tion to make the most of a situation she
had to face. Ms. Cunningham mentioned
that Ashanti is goal oriented and blunt, but
honest. The 2009 senior attends the Miracle
Deliverance Center in Moore Haven where
Billie Faye Thompson is her pastor.
"She always makes sure that God is the
head of her life," said April Cunningham.
Ms. Shepherd will major in psychol-
ogy in college and she hopes to attain a
masters degree. She wants to specialize in
clinical psychology and focus on children
and teens. She feels she can relate to kids
who face similar obstacles that she had to


face and overcome.
Ashanti Shepherd earned defensive
player of the year for her contribution to
Lady Terrier softball competition. They
won district and region championships.
The season ended with an 18-10 overall re-
cord with a loss to Westminister Academy
in the Class 2A State Final Four on May 13.
"I wish it didn't end the way it did, but
I'm happy with what we accomplished
overall," she said.
At graduation night on Terrier Field, May
29, Ashanti gave flowers to her stepmother,
Megan Shepherd and father, Peter Shep-
herd. which is a tradition at Moore Haven
High School graduation.
She credits her family and church for
the development of who she is right now.
Ms. Shepherd was a featured speaker at
graduation.
"To those of us who have lost a special
person prior to this day, although we can't
see them, their spirit and memories will
always be cherished in our hearts," she
said.
Ashanti Shepherd had closing com-
ments for her classmates, too.
"May God be with each and every one
of them. I love you guys," Ms. Shepherd
said.

Another Reason to Qui


By Jeni Dyess
Every parent wants the best for their child.
You do everything in your power to ensure
your children grow up happy, healthy, and
have the best opportunities you can provide.
Most parents would not intentionally risk the
health or safety of their child.
However, sometimes things we do as
adults affect our children more than we real-
ize.
If you're a smoker, someone in your
household smokes, or you frequent places
where smoking is allowed with your child,
you're putting them at risk.
When a cigarette is smoked, about half
the smoke is inhaled and exhaled by the
smoker. The other half floats around in the
air. This combination of smoke is known
as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) or
more commonly, secondhand smoke.
ETS plays a role in more health problems
than you might be aware of-not only for
adults, but for children as well.
Did you know children who breathe in
secondhand smoke have more chronic re-
spiratory symptoms such as coughing and
wheezing, and more cases of bronchial in-
fection?

They are also more likely to suffer from
dental cavities, eye and nose irritation, and
irritability. Exposure to ETS causes fluid to
buildup in the middle ear, resulting in almost
1.6 million doctor's office visits each year.
More trips to the doctor may translate to
increased medical/insurance expense and
loss of work time for the parent.
Even if you choose to smoke outside the
home or only in your home or car when
your children aren't with you, they're still
being exposed to toxins.
The January issue of Pediatrics magazine
revealed the results of a study done by re-
searchers at MassGeneral Hospital for Chil-
dren on thirdhand smoke.
Toxic particles from tobacco smoke get
lodged in a smoker's hair, clothing, and sur-
faces such as fabric, carpet, etc.
These particles contain chemical com-
pounds which have been classified by the
Environmental Protection Agency as Group
A carcinogens, meaning there is sufficient
evidence in humans proving these substanc-
es cause cancer.
Small children are more susceptible to
thirdhand smoke exposure because they
can inhale near, crawl and play on, or touch

ample, a smoker picks up a baby and holds

Smoking is the leading cause of prevent-

Not into you, or not there
(yet)? Maybe a crucial differ-
ence
By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I remember walking through a toy store
with my daughter one day.
She found a doll she wanted. I asked her
"What do you think it costs?"
She was about three years old and her
answer was "Three monies."
She made the connection between buy
ing and money; not exactly the right answer
but in the ball park.
I was amused by her choice of "three," a
good Trinitarian number likely to be bandied
about in a clergy household.
She got the doll; it cost more than three
monies. It wasn't that her answer was
wrong; the importance was that she was on
the way to a better answer.
Soon the price tags would take on a new
meaning; the concept of dollars and cents
would be hers. Soon she might know about
sales tax and waiting for special sales; but
this day her best vocabulary and her best un
derstanding was that "three monies" were
involved.
She was where she was at; at her appro-
priate place for her age and development.
She was "right" in her own way and that
was all that mattered.
Adults are like that too. They grow at
their own pace and in their own way. We
encounter them and they are elsewhere, in-
volved in things that don't interest us, at a
different level of maturity.
Before the movie came out about "He's
just not that into you" I saw a similar presen-
tation on TV. The idea that one person would
not be involved or committed to a relation-
ship when the other was working on it and
seeking commitment was seen as tragic.
No doubt it has a tragic side; a great dis-
appointment when one person is commit-
ted and the other is not.
I wonder, though, if a better understand-
ing could come when it is expressed as "He
is just not there (yet)."
Perhaps one person is more mature;
growing at a different pace than the other,
maybe one person is incapable of making
the commitment desired.
I see people growing in faith at different
degrees, different paces; they're making a
journey, (and aren't we all?) A man comes
to the Lord and asks "Teacher, what good
thing must I do to inherit eternal life? (Mat-
thew 19:16)."
After being told to keep the command-
ments, the man assured Jesus that he does
so, and asks "What do I still lack? (v.20)>"
He is advised to sell all his possessions and
"then come, follow me.(v.21)."
The price is too high: the man goes away
sad. The disciples who witnessed this scene
ask "Who then can be saved? (v. 25)" and
the answer is "With man this is impossible,
but with God all things are possible (v.26)."
Was the man not "into" the Lord, or was
he simply "not there yet"?
I choose to see the latter understanding
and have seen it many times since.


One way implies guilt and having to mea-
sure up; the other acknowledges what the
disciples saw. It's worth knowing the differ-
ence and "doing likewise."

An answer in the midst of
life's questions
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
My idea of cleaning the house is sweep-
ing the floor with a glance, but yesterday as
I was making the motions of cleaning out
one of my files, I stumbled across a collec-
tion of humorous questions that still stump
philosophers today.
Why do toasters always have a setting
that burns toast to a horrible crisp which no
normal person would eat?
Why is there a light in the fridge and not
in the freezer?
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares,
why is there a song about him?
Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle,
Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
If the professor on Gilligan's Island can
make a radio out of coconuts, why can't he
fix a hole in a boat?
Is Disney World the only people trap op-
erated by a mouse?
Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto
remains on all fours? They're both dogs!
Why is a person that handles your money
called a 'Broker?' Why is it that by the time
you find greener pastures, you can't climb
the fence?
Why is it that when someone tells you
there are over a billion stars in the universe,
you believe them, but if they tell you there is
wet paint somewhere, you have to touch it
to make sure?
Why is it that when you blow in a dog's
face, he doesn't like it, but when you take
him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the
window?
Aren't you glad in a world full of ques-
tions we have an answer?
In the words of Andrea Crouch, "Jesus is
the answer for the world today. Above him
there's no other, Jesus is the way.
Jesus is the answer for the world today.
Above him there's no other, Jesus is the
way"
"If you have some questions in the cor-
ners of your mind, and traces of discourage-
ment and peace you can not find. Reflection
of the old past, they seem to face you every
day. There's one thing I know for sure that
Jesus is the way."
"I know you got mountains that you think
you can not climb. I know that your skies
have been dark, You think the sun won't
shine. In case you don't know, I'm here to
tell you that the Word of God is true, and
everything that He's promised, I tell you He
would do it for you.
"Jesus is the answer for the world today.
Above Him there's no other, Jesus is the
way!" Let's all sing it!

Fathers take heed!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Exodus 20:5-6 it says: "For I the lord
your God am a jealous God, visiting the in-
iquity of the FATHERS upon the CHILDREN


to the third and fourth generations of those
who hate me."
Did you get that? If Dads fail in provid-
ing Biblical leadership within the home, the
price of delinquent fathering will be passed
down 3 to 4 generations!
Is that not what we see taking place in
America? Drug dealers are 3 generations
thick! Prisons are filled with one generation
of criminals after another.
We have more and more single moms
who are taking billions of dollars from the
federal government.
And dads, it's not just enough to be
around the house, God wants you to set a
proper example and provide sound Biblical
Teaching to your children. Deuteronomy 6:7
says to Fathers: "You shall teach them (God's
commandments) diligently to your children
and shall talk of them when you, sit in your
house, when you walk by the way, when
you lie down, and when your rise up."
Ephesian 6:4 says: "And ye Fathers, pro-
voke not your children to wrath; but bring
them up in the nurture and admonition of
the Lord."
Its time for dads across America to recog-
nize the difference between a drop-in Dad
that is one who only comes by when there
is a crisis mom can't handle, the sperm do-
nor, who only sees his job as one who pro-
creates then bolts; and the Biblical Dad.
He is the man who weeps when he con-
siders the awesome task of rearing godly
children in this depraved world. He is the
man who shows his children every day that
their mom is first in his life.


He is the Father who always put the needs
of his family over his own selfish whims and
desires. The Biblical Dad is the kind of man
that shudders when he hears terms like, "It
takes a village to raise our kids." He knows
that the village idiots in Washington are the
reason we are in this moral free-fall.
He loathes the very thought of the school
system or government raising his kids be-
cause he knows full well it is his God-given
responsibility.
Dr. Dobson said it best in his book, "Rais-
ing Them Right". "Children thrive best in an
atmosphere of genuine love, under girded
by reasonable, consistent discipline. In a
day of widespread drug usage, immorality,
sexually transmitted disease, vandalism, and
violence, we must not depend on hope and
luck to fashion the critical attitude we value
in our children."
So, Dad, let's look in the faces of our
children and realize this one fact. They will
be no more or produce nothing more than
what we as Dads have invested in them.
Zero instructions, with little or no Biblical
example, little time with half-hearted love,
will indeed produce a generation of children
starving for identity and purpose.
Dad, let's step it up and reclaim our right-
ful position in the home the spiritual leader
God called us to be.

cident occurs. Refusing to buckle up may
become a topic at safety and workmen's
compensation meetings for county, city and
local business employees.
Ms. Stallings encouraged the Florida
Highway Patrol and Glades County Sheriff's
Office to be alert for seat belt infractions, and
it is a possibility that FDOT message boards
with buckle up reminders will be used along
U.S. 27 in county locations.
There has been a recurring county and
postal service issue concerning the safety of
a mail box location on Click Drive and S.R.
78 in Lakeport. Elder and disabled residents
have considered it a hazard, but the U.S.
Postal Service has very complicated regu-
lations and the issue has remained unre-
solved. However, the traffic team will study
the problem and their recommendation
may be released at a later date.
Sergeant Donald Watts, GCSO, reports
that 342 traffic citations were issued in May.
Also, it was reported that a traffic fatality oc-
curred on U.S.27 in April, south of the Moore
Haven bridge; and another fatality occurred
in May on U.S. 27 near Gram Dairy Road.
Altogether, there have been 5 traffic fatalities
in 2009.

First Reconnaissance Battalion, during the
Vietnam War. The invocation was given by
local pastor, Wonder Johns, First Indian Bap-
tist Church; and the keynote speaker was
Stanlo Johns, U.S. Army veteran.
Children from Pemayetv Emahakv Char-
ter School in Brighton sang "This Land is
Our Land" in the Creek language; and chil-
dren from Ahfachkee school in Big Cypress
sang this song in the Miccosukee language.
Former Seminole Tribe chairman and Viet-
nam veteran, James E. Billie, and his band
performed for the audience.
Chairman Mitchell Cypress, Big Cypress
resident and U.S. Army veteran, gave wel-
coming remarks to visitors.


Donna Storter Long, county commission-
er, reports that a Bike Rodeo may be held at
the same location as the upcoming Smokey
Bear Day on August 8 in the city park in
Moore Haven. More plans will be made with
the Division of Forestry and Emergency Man-
agement before an official announcement is
made. Debra Stallings commented that bike
helmets may be available on that day.
Ms. Stallings alerted the team to the teen-
age use of energy drinks that also contain
alcohol. Some of these energy and alcohol


drinks are called Jungle Joose and Four
Loko. The cans are packaged to look like
juice or regular energy drinks. Sales clerks
and parents may be unaware of this and as-
sume they do not contain alcohol. However,
Jungle Joose contains 9.9 percent alcohol
including caffeine; and Four Loko contains
11 percent alcohol including caffeine.
A Teen Drivers Challenge sponsored by
GCSO will be held at the Alvin Ward boat
ramp parking lot on June 13.

Some Lakeport residents consider the location of mail boxes on Click Drive to
be a hazard. The Glades County community traffic safety team will study the
problem.


"As chairman of the Seminole Tribe of
Florida, it is a great honor to be part of the
team that made this dream a reality for the
Seminole veterans," said Mr. Cypress.
Today, there are fifty one living Seminole
veterans and 23 deceased. Native American
warriors are dedicated to their homeland.
They have served within the United States
military for over two hundred years. To per-
plex the enemy, American forces in both
Word Wars used Indian personnel and their
native languages to provide a secure vehi-
cle for communications. More than 42,000
American Indians fought in Vietnam. Ninety
percent of them were volunteers. They also
contributed to the Armed Forces in Grenada,
Panama, Somalia and the Persian Gulf.
The Seminole community of Brighton is
located in Glades County on the west bank
of Lake Okeechobee. For more information
