Endeavor Green: Eco-friendly boat


INI/Nena Bolan
The Endeavor Green is a new eco-friendly boat that runs on electricity. It cruised past Moore
Haven's historic section in mid-June.


Ranchland serves water project


Water Hole Marsh is
part of experiment at
Lykes ranch
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY A century
ago, public officials and real es-
tate entrepreneurs permanently
changed the natural flow of wa-
ter in the Northern and Southern
Everglades. Their industrial work
spread out from Orlando to Key
West.
Riverswerechannelized, drain-
age ditches stretched like a web,
and paved highways dammed


the River of Grass. Inland flooding
around Lake Okeechobee caused
people and their farm animals to
drown. An earthen dike was con-
structed around the big lake to
protect them.
The dried wetlands made way
for extensive agriculture and in-
credible urban development.
Polluted waters reach the lake,
which is a water supply for South
Florida. Unnatural surges into the
lake disturb bird, fish and amphib-
ian nurseries; while unwanted re-
leases into rivers alter the water
quality of coastal estuaries.
The excess water that runs
off is not adequately stored for
drought conditions. During a long
drought, water levels drop off dra-


matically in Lake Okeechobee.
The resulting water restrictions,
loss of recreation and tourism,
and stagnation of coastal estuar-
ies cause an economic drain on
South Florida's people.
Billions of dollars have been
spent to restore the Everglades
and its watershed economy. Treat-
ment storage areas and wells are
being built while pollution regu-
lations are implemented.
Various interest groups and
government agencies are work-
ing together to find common
goals that will benefit people,
plants, animals and water. The

Python


possession


requires


permit
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY The Florida
Wildlife Commission classifies the
Burmese python snake as a Reptile
of Concern (ROC). This means that
a permit must be obtained for per-
sonal possession. ROC's are not
native to Florida and can become
an invasive species.
They are a danger to indigenous
wildlife, can cause economic dam-
age, prey on pets or pose a threat
to human safety. The State of Flor-
ida has rules for keeping ROC's
as of January 2008. A $100 permit
must be obtained each year of pos-
session.
If a ROC has a more than a two
inch diameter, it must have a per
manent microchip. The reptile can
then be identified in case it escapes
or is released. The purchase of a
ROC with more than a two inch
diameter must be micro-chipped
immediately.
The most common way that
ROC's enter native habitat is by
escape or release from pet own-
ers. Find out all you can about a
non-native species before you buy
one as a pet. How large does it get?
How fast does it grow, or mature?
What is its longevity? What is re-
quired to take care of it? Generally,
the Burmese python can grow to
20 feet long, weigh 200-250 pounds
and live to be 20-25 years old.
In addition to the Burmese py-

Pahokee Blue Devils will participate F



in upcoming Nike 7-on-7 competition eC-Iz

Tournament will be held
from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore.


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The Pahokee Blue Devils will
be taking their skills center stage to Oregon
next week.
With this year's Nike 70N national 7-on-7
competition to be held from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore., Pahokee knows what's on
the line.
As a matter of fact, they actually have
some unfinished business to take care of.
After last year's Nike 70N regional tour-
nament, which ended in a 22-21 loss to
Miami-Booker T. Washington on July 12,
2008, the Blue Devils were thoroughly disap-
pointed.
According to published reports, Pahokee
and Booker T. Washington were embroiled
in a melee on that day, thus disqualifying
both teams from last year's national cham-
pionship.
The brawl reportedly ended with a knee
injury to Booker T. Washington head coach
Earl Tillman.
Both teams later declined their invitations
to compete in last year's adidas 7-on-7 na-
tional championship.
Booker T. Washington won the adidas
7-on-7 title game, while Pahokee was the
runner-up.
With all that being said, Pahokee head
coach Blaze Thompson simply wants to put
it behind him and move on.
"We don't back down on a challenge,
but our goal is to win on the field and play
hard between the whistles and with integ-
rity," Thompson said.
"We're not going to dwell on the nega-
tive, but we know that everyone's gunning
for us."
That includes Miami-Northwestern, one
of eight teams that will be in competition
with Pahokee at this year's Nike 70N tour-
nament.
Despite Pahokee's five Class 2B state
championships in the past six years, in addi-
tion to the adidas 7-on-7 national champion-
ship and a No. 6 USA Today final national
ranking two years ago, Thompson believes
his team still doesn't get much respect out-
side of Palm Beach County.
And that perception alone is what makes
Thompson stop just short of being irate.
"Teams think that we don't belong in
the national rankings because we're a small
school," Thompson said.
"But we know that we've earned the
right to be talked about when it comes to
being in the conversation of the elite teams
in the nation."
Here's a list of the Pahokee players who'll
be flying to Oregon next week:
Zachary Allen
Rantavious Atkins


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee Blue Devils junior quarterback Emmanuel Perez will be one of 20 play-
ers who'll be flying to Oregon on Wednesday, July 15.

Othniel Harvey
Corey Hill

Merill Noel
Jacquay Perdue
Emmanuel Perez

Earnquavion Robinson
Norris White
Shaquille White
Kaalum Williams
Nathan Wood
Pahokee will have an opportunity to win
its second 7-on-7 national championship in
three years.
With the title, it likely won't be a surprise
if the Blue Devils are nationally ranked when
the 2009 season officially begins.
"We're gonna compete at the highest lev
el and have fun out there," Pahokee wideout


Dennis Hall said.
"We're not just coming to compete, but
we're gonna take the trophy home back to
Pahokee."
Thompson couldn't agree more with
Hall's statement.
"We get our motivation from people
doubting us," Thompson said.
"Anybody can get it."
Notes: There is no regional Nike 70N
competition this year, according to Thomp-
son.
Nike, the official sponsor of the Pahokee
Blue Devils, is reportedly paying all of the
expenses that come with this cross-country
trip.

The hospital's outpatient registration
planned emergency room.
By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center has re-
located its Outpatient Registration Depart-
ment. The outpatient registration area is
now located at the front entrance of the hos-
pital (first door on the left).
Hospital administration has been plan-
ning this move for some time. With the
construction of the new emergency room


Submitted photo/HRMC
has been moved to make room for a

right around the corner, volume in this de-
partment, which was formally located near
the back of the hospital, would have been
far too congested. According to Craig Cud-
worth, CEO of Hendry Regional, "The move
also greatly improves service and conve-
nience to the patient. The lobby provides
a larger seating area, and patients can now
park in the front of the hospital."


BELLE GLADE Workforce Alliance,
who earlier in the year awarded Glades
General Hospital a $27,500 grant for work-
force training, is pleased to announce that
44 nursing staff have completed the pro-
gram and have been awarded advanced
certifications.
The training program was designed to
help the nursing staff prepare for the use
of greater technology when the hospital
transitions into its modern new facility, the
Lakeside Medical Center, later this year.
Workforce Alliance's Employed Worker
Training Program is a funding source that
is available to eligible businesses seeking
to improve the skills and qualifications of
their current employees.
The recent program with Glades Gen-
eral Hospital provided training for 21 staff
members to earn Healthcare Certification
Level One and for 21 additional staff to at-
tain Level Two Certification.
Another four employees completed
training to become on-staff training profes-
sionals.
As a result of the training, the participat-
ing employees increased their skills and
many became eligible for higher level posi-


Workforce Alliance's total Employed
Worker Training program during the past
fiscal year awarded $546,994 in training
grants to a total of nineteen Palm Beach
County employers.
This resulted in job-related training for
over 450 employees and an overall eco-
nomic investment in the County of over
$1.8 million, including the $1.3 million in
contributions made by the businesses.
Businesses seeking information on the
Employed Worker Training program and
how it may benefit their business may con-
tact Gerry Genovese, Director of Business
Services at Workforce Alliance, 561-340-
1061, ext. 2211.
Workforce Alliance is the organization
chartered by the State of Florida to devel-
op, create and retain a quality workforce
system in Palm Beach County.
As the workforce solution driving eco-
nomic growth in the County, Workforce
Alliance offers its professional services, in-
cluding access to local employment infor-
mation, to all employers and job seekers in

HIN1-Flu in



Glades County

Glades County The Glades and
Hendry County Health Departments were
contacted in regards to four detainees at
a detention center within Glades County
that became ill with influenza-like-illness
(ILI) on June 27, 2009.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments recommended the follow-
ing: Immediate isolation and quarantine
of all detainees within their housing unit
Any transport or movement of detainees
be halted. Staffing assignments remain
the same. Anti-virals to all contacts of the
symptomatic detainees.
Two samples were sent to the State
Lab and were confirmed this morning
for the H1N1 virus. Two other samples
are still pending results from a private lab.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments will continue to closely
monitor the situation.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments also issued these recom-
mendations:
*Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or seem to be ill.
If you get sick with flu-like symptoms,
stay home and limit contact with others.
*Wash hands frequently (for at least
20-30 seconds) with soap & warm water
to lessen the spread of any respiratory
illnesses. Wash in between your fingers,
your finger nails, your wrists and fore-

A Walk in the Past: The Battle of Horseshoe Bend


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The ragged lines of marching Tennes-
see volunteers gripped their rifles tightly as
cold fear coiled around their bodies and
squeezed until beads of perspiration flowed
freely. Brown, stoic faced comrades from the
Creek and Cherokee Nations trotted past to
position themselves along the left and right
flanks of the volunteer's advancing lines, so
the enemy would have no escape route.
A single shot echoed into thousands as
fire and smoke belched from the blazing
barrels of friend and foe. Hours later the
triumphing voices of the American victors
merged with the despairing cries of the van-
quished Red Sticks.
This fictitious story reflects the Battle of
Horseshoe Bend that broke the resistance of
the Red Sticks. It is time to "Take a Walk in
The Past" and read about the final hours of
the Creek Red Sticks.
The Creek Civil War began in the Creek
Confederacy, which was divided into two
factions, the Red Sticks and the White Sticks.
Red Sticks favored war and Native Ameri
canism, void of white encroachment and
culture. White Sticks favored integrating into
the white culture on peaceful terms. These
ideologies were birthed and nurtured by
white intrusion on Creek lands.
The friction caused by these two ideolo-
gies led to a vicious war that was escalated
when Red Sticks attacked Ft. Mims in 1813,
and massacred most of the forts inhabitants.
Many of the settlers that died at Ft. Mims
were Creek White Sticks, who had sought
refuge in the fort.
The massacre sent a wave of fear through
the frontier and the Southeast. White settlers
and Creek White Sticks fled their homes on
the frontier to seek shelter in forts and safer
territories. The United States reacted to the
Ft. Mims massacre by declaring war on the
Red Sticks.
The states and territories in the Southeast
requested U.S. Army troops, but there were
few to spare because the United States was
engaged in a war with England. The South-
east was forced to raise an independent
army of volunteers to deal with its chilling
emergency.
Volunteer militias were called up in the
Southeast that comprised:
The Georgia Territory, which estab-
lished a line of forts along its western bor-
ders to act as a buffer and a militia army with
over 20,000 men, plus 2,000 regular troops
and 400 friendly Creeks.
The Mississippi Territory that
formed a small militia of 1,000 men, which,
included infantry, local militia and Choctaw
Indians.
The state of Tennessee pulled an
army of 2,500 volunteers from west Tennes-
see and placed it under the command of
Colonel Andrew Jackson. Another volunteer
army of 2,500 was formed in east Tennessee
and placed under the command of Major
General William Cocke.
Indian Agent, Benjamin Hawkens,
organized friendly Creeks under the com-
mand of Major William McIntosh. The
Cherokee Nation sent 200 Cherokees under
the command of Major Ridge. These com-


bined Indian armies fought under white mi-
litias and are noted for their services in the
Tennessee militia that was commanded by
Colonel Andrew Jackson.
The Southeast now had ample manpow-
er to crush the Red Sticks, whose numbers
historians believe never exceeded 4,000.
However, the numerous American armies
were under separate commanders from dif-
ferent territories that operated independent-
ly of one another. This problem weakened
the combat effectiveness of the American's
superior forces.
The American strategy was to attack the
Red Sticks' scared Holy Ground where the
larger populations of Red Sticks lived. The
plan's logistics required forts, roads and
supply lines because the Red Sticks' main
villages were deep within the Alabama wil-
derness
These logistical demands were chal-
lenging to the American commanders, but
the most demanding task they faced was
time. Time was of essence because the
armies consisted mainly of volunteer militia,
whose enlistments were from two to three
months.
Armies of volunteers simply melted away
at the end of their 60 or 90 day service, leav-
ing bewildered commanders with ghost
armies.
Colonel Jackson became a very frustrated
commander in the early months of the Creek
War, when most of his west Tennessee mi-
litia returned home after their 90-day enlist-
ment ended. His army of several thousand
was reduced to a mere 103 soldiers, which
stalled his military objectives until additional
troops could be brought in. The east Tennes-
see militia fared worst when all of William
Cocke's army went home.
The west and east Tennessee militias
were combined under Jackson and became
the main military force in the Creek War.
Jackson resolved the volunteer enlistment
problem by extending the period from three
months to six months. He then began his
campaign against the Red Sticks in earnest,
building roads and forts as he marched to
the heart of Upper Creek homeland.
Numerous engagements and battles
were fought, but the decisive battle that
ended Red Stick resistance was the "Battle
of Horseshoe Bend." Jackson's force num-
bered 3,000 troops and 600 Cherokee and
Lower Creek allies. The Red Sticks were at-
tacked in the center by the Tennessee militia
and hit on the left and right flanks by Indian
allies. The Red Sticks took terrible losses.
The war cost the Red Sticks dearly in lives
and land. The Treaty of Fort Jackson forced
the Indians to cede 23 million acres to the
United States. Most of this land would later
become the state of Alabama. Some of the
lands belonging to the Cherokees and other
Indians that aided the Americans were in-
cluded in the treaty.
Davy Crockett, the legendary figure who
is remembered for his heroic death at the
Alamo, volunteered as a scout for the Ten-
nessee militia during the Creek War. During
his enlistment, he located a large Red Stick
village and reported the information to Jack-
son's staff. Approximately 500 soldiers were
dispatched to the village, which was a three-
day trip. They attacked the village savagely


and vengefully gave no quarter.
The army carried few supplies on their
three-day march and ran out of provisions.
They were forced to forage for food in the
destroyed Indian village.
Potatoes were found stored in a cellar be-
neath below a large cabin, where many of
the Indians had made a last stand. The cabin
had been set on fire, and many of the Indi-
ans burned in the raging flames. Fat from the
burning bodies melted and collected on the
potatoes. The soldiers were forced to eat the
potatoes or starve.
Davy Crockett was angered by soldiers'
brutal behavior and reported their actions.
He became so disgusted with the barbaric


w
ba
pe
w(
gr


G%


actions of the army's soldiery that he re-
signed and went home.
Crockett never forgave Jackson for
the actions of his armies. In Congress, he
fought the Jackson administration and voted
against the Indian Removal Act. Crockett lost
his seat in Congress in 1831 because he had
angered Jackson.
He later won again in 1833 and said, "I
bark at no man's bid. I will never come and
go, and fetch and carry, at the whistle of the
great man in the White House no matter
who he is."
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Andrew Jackson invades Spanish Florida.

Obama versus Washington
and Lincoln
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Todaywhen we continue to hear the pres-
ent administration talk about "Change" and
with the "stimulus package" and "bail-outs"
I would like to make a few observations.
While the President lauds Presidents
Washington and Lincoln, in practice he
completely disagrees with their philosophies
that are on record.
President Obama shows weakness in the
face of threats from North Korea and Iran.
He is borrowing from our enemies, some
foreign governments, and thus from future
generations of Americans, for the benefit of
the here and now.
His arrogance in the face of unprecedent-
ed deficits in our national debt and continual
advocacy to spend, spend, spend and tax,
tax, tax, is abhorrent.
Listen to these words of wisdom of two
of America' great Presidents and see how
these words measure up to the philosophies
and policies of the present administration.
President Washington made the follow-
ing comments: "It has been, very properly,
the policy of our government to cultivate
peace. But in the contemplating the possibil-
ity of our being driven to unqualified war, it
will be wise to anticipate that, frequently, the
most effective way to defend is to attack.
"Americans will fight for their liberties
and prosperity. God can get along without
America, but America cannot get along
without God. The Blessings and protec-
tion of Heaven are at all times necessary,
but especially so in times of public distress
and change. Government is not reason, it if
force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and
a fearful master."
Now these comments from President
Lincoln: "You cannot bring about prosperity
by discouraging thrift.
"You cannot help small men by tearing
down big men. You cannot strengthen the
weak by weakening the strong. You can-
not lift the wage earner by pulling down
the wage payer. You cannot help the poor
man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep
out of trouble by spending more that your
income. You cannot further the brotherhood
of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot
establish security by borrowed money. You
cannot build character and courage by tak-
ing away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing
for them what they could and should do for
themselves."

Find Goliath; Look for closed
minds!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
In one area, we had a candidate for min-
istry who stuttered.
He had been rejected by his home re-
gion but still felt called to ministry. We had
an out-of-the-way Church of faithful people
where nobody wanted to serve.
When asked, they were glad to consider


him and he was glad to go.
They told us that once you got used to
listening to him, he really had something to
say!
They were pleased and he was fulfilled.
He taught those who would listen; it was
the message and not the messenger that
counted.
Jesus had the same problem. He went
to His home town and people questioned
"Where did this man get these things?"...
(Mark 6:lff).
They asked about his relatives and who
He was, "and don't we know His family?
"Mark adds "...they took offense at Him
(v.3)." The result was that His ministry
was limited; only a few cures "and He was
amazed at their lack of faith(v.6)."
It's been that way ever since; we choose
good or bad leaders not because of what
they do or say but because we like or dislike
them. We go to church and don't listen with
a critical ear because "it's our Church"; not
because of what is being taught.
We reject ideas without thinking about
them because they come from a source that
we don't like. One community had an excel-
lent physician but he was a bit too much "to
the point" for some of his patients.
They chose another physician because
they felt he was "nicer"; not because he was
good at healing.
We would talk about our teachers in
school; whether they were "nice" or "hard"
or "difficult" or "fun." It had nothing to do
with learning or teaching; the genius was
one who could be both "nice" and teach
too.
When I taught in college, one of my stu-
dents said "You're a nice guy but your tests
are hard."
I told him that I was responsible to see
that something was learned and that I didn't
think the tests were unfairly hard.
He shot back "But you're an educated
man!" I asked him how he thought one gets
to be "educated?"
No answer!
It's a good time in to look at what people
share; not whether we like them or not, or if
they are popular or unpopular.
David slays Goliath not because he faces
a warrior dressed as a warrior and prepared
for the usual means of combat; but because
he has honed skills as a shepherd that have
saved the lives of his sheep and knows how
to be deadly accurate at a distance.
He asks God to be with him, God was
with him; Goliath couldn't imagine another
outcome to the contest between the shep-
herd boy and the warrior; he knew it all.
Listen and learn; watch for what is to be
gained even from those we don't always
like, those who are not considered.
Then see God at work and miracles hap-
pening.

Priceless Scribbles
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I came across a story that was published
years ago in the Christian Reader about a fa-
ther who touched his children's lives in an
unexpected, yet special way.
As his father walked into the living room,
the boy noticed that his younger brother,


John, began to cower.
The older boy sensed that John had done
something wrong, and then he saw it. Little
John had opened their father's brand new
hymnal and scribbled all over the first page
with a pen.
Staring at their father fearfully, both broth-
ers waited for John's punishment.
Their father picked up his prized hym-
nal, looked at it carefully and then sat down
without saying a word.
Books were precious to him, and the
boys expected the worse.
What the father did next surprised them
both.
Instead of punishing or scolding John,
the father took the pen from the little boy's
hand, and wrote alongside the scribbles
that John had made: "John's work, 1959,
age 2. How many times have I looked into
your beautiful face and into your warm, alert
eyes looking up at me and thanked God for
the one who has now scribbled in my new
hymnal. You have made the book sacred, as
have your brother and sister to so much of
my life."
The author of the story, now an adult,
goes on to say how that hymnal became
a treasured family possession, how it was
tangible proof that their parents loved them,
how it taught the lesson that what really
matters is people, not objects; patience, not
judgment; love, not anger.
I've read that there are four elements we
need in our childhood to teach us such les-
sons and allow us to experience joy as an
adult. The first element is unconditional love
from at least one adult in our lives.
This unconditional love gives us self
esteem and encourages us to see the world
as a friendly place. The second element is
discovering our passions through play. Most
of us in our unstructured play time discover
where our true talents and passions lay.
Some children take joy in telling stories,
or building backyard forts, or taking the
toaster apart. These early play times are a
great indicator of that child's later interests.
The third element involves practicing and
mastering these interests, talents, and pas-
sions.
This honing and mastering of particular
skills increases a child's self-confidence and
makes them less afraid to try new things.
And finally, a child needs to experience posi-
tive recognition from others.
Children learn what they live. As the say-
ing goes, "If children live with approval, they
learn to like themselves. If children live with
acceptance and friendship, they learn to love
the world."
Wouldn't it be wonderful if every child
could experience each of those four ele-
ments? Wouldn't it be wonderful if every
adult could, too? Wouldn't it be wonderful if
we could all learn to like ourselves and love
the world?

Local Ham Radio



operators participate


in field day exercise


By Sam Thomas, W3ALE, PIO -
Each year, the American Radio Relay
League schedules a "field day" exercise to
test amateur radio capabilities in cases of
emergencies. This event was scheduled for
the 27th and 28th of June, and involved por-
table and temporary radio station set-ups
across the nation. The exercise runs for 24
hours, beginning at 2 p.m. Saturday, the
27th, and ending on Sunday, the 28th, at
2 p.m. Stations are to simulate emergency
conditions; operating with generators, bat-
teries, solar power or other sources than the
traditional "wall outlets." Antennas are also
usually erected in the field and consist of
very simple wire antennas strung between
trees or posts, to very elaborate temporary
tower arrangements with multiple antenna
arrangements. The exercise involves con-
tacting as many stations as possible in the
24-hour period to check signal reports and
test the operational capacities of each emer-
gency station across the country. This year,
Jim Sparks, AA4BN, the Emergency Coordi-
nator for Hendry County, and Sam Thomas,
W3ALE, Assistant Emergency Coordinator,
placed the stations at John Boy Auditorium
on the air to participate in this field drill. The
station's VHF transceiver was able to raise
repeater stations in Okeechobee, Lakeport,
Fort Myers, Belle Glade and Moore Haven.
Additionally, the national calling frequency


for Field Day was monitored and scanned
for any mobile stations operating in the area
that wished to participate in the exercise.
The High Frequency station operated at re-
duced output for this exercise and was able
to monitor stations throughout the South-
eastern U. S. and as far away as Canada.
The exercise allowed identification of weak
spots in the local emergency station and to
make arrangements for adding improve-
ments to the local system before the hur-
ricane season becomes active. Sharing in
communications in man-made and natural
disasters is one of the functions undertaken
by the amateur radio community across
the nation; Hendry County is represented
by local amateurs who share in this activ-
ity. Those with specialized training provided
by the federal government and the ARRL
are also deployed to other areas that have
been struck by disasters. In the past, many
hours have been given by Clewiston and
Hendry County radio amateurs for service
in disasters around the state. The motto for
this activity is "When all else fails" and re-
flects that amateurs get through when there
are no other means of communications in
operation. This public service has brought
commendations from many officials. Gover-
nor Charlie Crist has sent his greetings and
wishes, observing June, 2009 as Amateur
Radio Operator's Month in Florida.

New Season of SFWMD, Audubon Bird-Watching Tours


An Everglades restoration project just
south of Lake Okeechobee continues to live
up to its reputation as a national bird-watch-
ing location.
June marks the beginning of another
season of partnership between the South
Florida Water Management District (SF-
WMD) and the Hendry-Glades Audubon,
whose experts lead public birding tours at
the District-managed Stormwater Treatment
Area 5 (STA-5) in Hendry County. Most tours
are guided by Audubon's Margaret England,
who recently received the District's first
Ambassador Award to recognize her com-
munity service and commitment to assist
the District and provide increased access to
public lands.
"The diversity of species at STA-5 is truly
breathtaking, and the partnership with the
Hendry-Glades Audubon is a significant
public service," said SFWMD Executive Di-
rector Carol Ann Wehle. "These treatment
wetlands are effective at cleaning water
flowing into the River of Grass and, as an
added benefit, have also become wildlife
havens that showcase the environmental
and economic significance of Everglades
restoration."
Birding, a national pastime, is big busi-
ness, with 48 million people observing birds
both around the home and through vaca-
tion travel. A 2001 report by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service concluded that nation-
wide birding generated $32 billion in retail
sales and created 863,406 jobs.


Non-consumptive bird use (non-hunting
activities) supported more than 19,000 jobs
in Florida in 2006, and wildlife viewing ac-
tivities generated more than $3 billion state-
wide that year, according to a state report.
Second in the nation only to California, bird-
ing generates an estimated $477 million in


retail sales in Florida every year.
During the past 15 years, Stormwater
Treatment Areas have proven to be the wa
ter-cleaning workhorses of Everglades resto-
ration, utilizing plants to remove phospho-
rus from water flowing into the Everglades.
Since 1994, six STAs with a combined

County, just south of Lake Okeechobee, one of the premier bird-watching spots
in the country.


area of more than 52,000 acres have re-
tained more than 1,000 metric tons of total
phosphorus that would have otherwise en-
tered the Everglades. Overall, Florida has
invested more than $1.8 billion to improve
Everglades water quality.
At each Stormwater Treatment Area, wa-
ter levels are managed at an optimal depth
for water quality improvements, which
also creates an attractive habitat for wad-
ing birds. The District has taken steps to en-
sure the public has access at these sites for
spectacular wildlife viewing as well as duck
hunting, enhanced at STA-5 by construction
of a waterfowl watching/hunting platform
for disabled veterans and residents alike.
The District is committed to increasing
recreational access to District lands, while
continuing to manage them effectively to
meet its environmental restoration, water
supply, water quality and flood control mis-
sions. For more information on recreational
opportunities, please visit www.sfwmd.gov/

bird watching, visit the Great Florida Bird-
ing Trail.

FWC makes changes to captive wildlife rules


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) approved changes
to laws regulating captive wildlife during its
June meeting at Crystal River.
The FWC approved the new rules after
hearing staff recommendations and gather-
ing input from 46 individuals who requested
an opportunity to address Commissioners
on the subject during Wednesday's ses-
sion. That's on top of four years of the FWC
gathering input from individuals, groups and
government agencies.
State Rep., Ralph Poppell R-Titusville,
who attended the meeting, called the move
a critical tweaking of state regulations. He
noted that U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., also
is interested in the issue and said state of-
ficials should work with the senator to con-
tinue to make progress.
Some participants in the meeting ex-
pressed concern about compliance with
financial responsibility requirements en-
acted by the Florida Legislature and whether
they are adequate. FWC Chairman Rodney
Barreto said the agency will work with the
Legislature to revise requirements if appro-
priate. Commissioner Ron Bergeron said the
new size requirements for captive wildlife
facilities will eliminate future issuance of
permits to inadequate facilities. However,
he indicated he believes the permit applica-
tion process should require notification of
neighbors.
Col. Julie Jones, director of the FWC's
Division of Law Enforcement, said she will
discuss the matter with FWC staff and report
back to Commissioners at a future meeting.
New regulations provide that U.S. De-


apartment of Agriculture-registered research
facilities must maintain a detailed research
proposal and meet the strength require-
ments for cages and enclosures. The provi-
sion does not include bison kept for produc-
tion of meat, skins or hides, or propagation.
Bison, when kept for propagation only, are
exempt from licensing and caging require-
ments.
Certain wildlife species will be reclassified
from Class 11 to Class 1, including the cougar,
cheetah, hyena and aardwolf. Class I desig-
nation means the species is among the most
potentially dangerous to humans. Class II
animals are less potentially dangerous but
still represent a threat to public safety if not
kept in suitable conditions.
A "grandfather clause" in the rule pro-
vides that anyone possessing Class II wild-
life for personal use will not have to obtain
additional permits when their animals' clas-
sification changes to Class 1. All Class I wild-
life, except those for exhibition or sale, must
have permanent identification devices (mi-
crochips, photographs of identifying distinct
features, such as tattoos, etc.).
Jones told Commissioners, that although
the new rules will take effect in August, the
animal owners will have until Jan. 1, 2010,
to comply with the permanent identification
requirement.
Certain wildlife species will also be reclas-
sified from Class IllI to Class II, including the
American alligator, patas monkey, giraffe,
okapi, tapir and certain wild species of the
bovidae (cow) family. Wild or domestic hy-
brids that are indistinguishable (having more
wild characteristics than domestic) from the


wild animal will be regulated as wildlife. A
permit is required for personal possession
of brush-tailed opossums and personal pos-
session of wild foxes, skunks, bats, raccoons
and white-tailed deer is prohibited under the
new rules.
The experience requirements for Class I
and 11 wildlife possession have changed to
require documented experience in caring
for the specific family of the animal except
for crocodilians, which require experience
with animals of the same biological order.
Documentation of experience for corpora-
tions also have been clarified; and a U.S.
Department of Agriculture license is a re-
quirement for possession of Class I wildlife
for exhibition or sale.
Critical incident and disaster plans are re-
quired for Class 1, 11 and Ill wildlife when the
wildlife is housed or maintained in Florida. In
addition, critical incident and disaster plans
are required for out-of-state permit holders
traveling in Florida with Class I or II wildlife.
Barriers must be in place when uncon-
fined Class I or II wildlife are on exhibit to
the public. Also prior written approval from
the FWC is a requirement for certain Class I
wildlife for incidental contact with the pub-
lic, such as when the animals are under su-
pervision and control of the permit holder or
handler but are subject to spectators touch-
ing them.
Animal owners must maintain records of
animal acquisitions, sales and transfers for
three years. Owners of Class I and Class II
animals must also maintain records of ani-
mals' births and deaths. New regulations
are in place for captive wildlife sanctuaries


providing lifetime care for unwanted or in-
firmed captive wildlife. These sanctuaries
must be not-for-profit, wildlife must be per-
manently identified, and public contact with
such wildlife is prohibited. Persons possess-
ing performing wildlife that can no longer
perform due to age or physical condition
may continue to possess the wildlife for life-
time care under the exhibition/sale license.
These animals must also be permanently
identified.
Transportation of wildlife must be in a
cage or enclosure labeled "Live Animal."
The cage or enclosure must list the number
of specimens and the common and scien-
tific names of the wildlife. If transportation is
in a trailer, the access door must be labeled
"Live Animal," and the list of the number of
specimens and their common and scientific
names must be in the cab. A rehabilitation
permit is not a requirement for rehabilitat-
ing nonnative species. For rehabilitation of
native wildlife, a timeline for rehabilitation
is required. The comingling of sick and in-
jured nonnative wildlife in the same cage or
enclosure with sick or injured or otherwise
impaired native wildlife is illegal. Nonnative
wildlife or domestic animals can be used for
fostering orphaned native wildlife.
Rehabilitation facilities or permitted in-
dividuals may not release fully recovered
American alligators or American crocodiles.

It's summertime at the pool-watch your children


Water safety is an important topic this
time of year. One of the many aspects of
water safety is supervision. When children
are swimming or playing anywhere near the
water it is vital to have an adult assigned to
watching them. Whether it is an inground
pool, a lake, an aboveground pool, the
beach or a small, blowup kiddie pool, a re-
sponsible adult must be in charge. It only
takes a second for something to go wrong.
The adult assigned as the pool watcher
should not become distracted by other activ-
ities, the phone ringing or involved conver-
sations. Their eyes should be on the children
nonstop. If they need to go inside for any
period of time, they should assign another
adult to watch them or get everyone out of
the water.


Even when everyone is inside, watching
your children can make all the difference.
Children can quickly figure out how to get
outside and water can pique their interest.
For this reason, it is also important to set up
layers of protection. Locks, alarms, barriers
and safety covers are some of the items that
can help.
Children can be curious, creative and in-
novative. Adult supervision is necessary for
safety in and out of the water.
Have a designated pool watcher to
keep an eye on swimmers at all times
Learn CPR
Keep your safety barriers and layers of
protection in place at all times
Never swim alone, this means adults
too


Do not use a pool/ spa while under the
influence of alcohol or drugs
Do not use glass containers around the
pool
Keep the pool area well lit if swimming
after dark
Go in at the first sign of thunderstorms
No running or rough play
No diving in shallow water and always
steer your dive up
Never stand or play on a pool cover
Read and follow the labels and instruc-
tions when using and storing pool chemi-
cals
Keep emergency phone numbers post-
ed in the pool area
Do not leave toys near a pool, they can
attract children
Do not leave objects near the fence that


a child could climb over
Learn to swim

Florida Highwaymen painter James Gibson recognized


TALLAHASSEE Florida Artists Hall of
Fame Member and Florida Highwaymen
Painter James Gibson has been awarded
one of eight National Governors Association
(NGA) Awards for Distinguished Service to
State Government. Gibson earned the award
in the Distinguished Service to the Arts, Ar-
tistic Production category. This important
award recognizes outstanding service to the
arts, focusing on contributions that improve
the quality of life and bring distinction to a
state. The award presentation will be made
July 18 during the NGA Annual Meeting in
Biloxi, Mississippi.


"The State of Florida is privileged to have
a talented artist and civic leader like James
Gibson representing our state's gifted art
community," said Secretary of State Kurt
Browning. "We are thrilled that the National
Governors Association has recognized Mr.
Gibson with this prestigious award."
A Florida resident since his birth in 1938,
Gibson is a prolific Florida landscape painter.
He estimates that he has painted over 10,000
landscapes. In the segregated 1950s, Gibson
and the original Highwaymen artists chose a
different path than most African Americans
who worked in packinghouses and citrus


groves. They taught one another to paint in-
stead. "They used to laugh at me, but I didn't
give up," Gibson said.
He began selling his paintings for $20
out of the trunk of his car and they now sell
for hundreds and thousands of dollars. His
works are widely collected by thousands of
Floridians, and Governor Charlie Crist select-
ed his work to be featured in the Governor's
Mansion in honor of Black History Month in
2008.
An engaged citizen for the arts, Gibson
regularly contributes to charitable events,
including art auctions, art education events,


and the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches. He
participates in the federal "Weed and Seed"
youth instructional forum that "weeds out
crime and plants seeds of crime preven-
tion." Gibson's work has been exhibited
at the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida
House in Washington, D.C., and has been
commissioned by two Florida governors. He
was inducted into the Florida Artists Hall ol
Fame as a part of the Highwaymen in 2005,
and was appointed and currently serves as
a board member of Citizens for Florida Arts,
Inc.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue an environmental resource permit
(File No 272605 001) to Alico, Inc, 640 South Main Street, LaBelle, Florida 33935, to expand an existing limestone
mining operation within a 514,9 acre project area of pasturelands and sugar cane fields. The total area served by
the water management system will be 48 9 acres
Mining on the site began in 1991 A total of 79 4 acres have been mined in two pits on the north side of the proper
that were previously known as the Ridgdill and Son, Inc Ridgdill Pits number 5 and 7 An earlier mine pit on
e east side of the property (the Macaspalt, Inc Moore Haven Mine), which will remain outside of the permitted
system, has already been reclaimed and will remain undisturbed The Bronson Mine site has not been previously
permitted.
Groundwater levels at the mine site are heavily influenced by the water levels maintained in the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er Canal (C 43), which in turn is dependent on water levels maintained in Lake Okeechobee There will be dewater
ing of the active pits during mining. Excess water will be circulated through recharge ditches surrounding each mine
pit, with water elevations controlled by a system of weirs
The mine is designed to recycle and store all process wastewater and runoff from storm events up to a 25 year,
72-hour storm No wetlands are proposed to be adversely impacted by the mining The only other surface waters
on the site are the existing mine pits
No impervious surfaces will remain after mining. The maximum depth of the proposed mining will be approximately
30 feet below the existing grade, which is about 28 feet below the average water table After mining, the project
will result in six deep lakes, totaling approximately 203 7 acres All landforms within the water management system
will be re-contoured with a maximum 4H IV (horizontal vertical) slope Subaqueous portions of the lake shoreline
will be reclaimed with a 3H'1V slope down to 6 3 feet NGVD, which is six feet below the average water level The
shorelines will be revegetated with a mix of native herbaceous plants and trees The estimated life of the mine is 20
years The postreclamation anticipated land use is agricultural, with pasture grass and mixed pine/hardwood forest
The project is located six miles southwest of Moore Haven, two miles south of the intersection of U S Highway 27
and State Road 78, Sectons 24 and 25, Township 42 South, Range 31 East, in Glades County

Ranchland
Continued From Page 1

tal Services Project (FRESP) is a program
that was begun in 2005 as way to sustain
ranchland and its regional economic value,
while ranchers provide water related envi-
ronmental services that aid in the restoration
of the watershed.
FRESP has field tested wetland areas in
several cattle ranches located at Glades,
Charlotte and Highlands Counties within
the Northern Everglades Region. The main
goal is water retention and phosphorus re-
duction services. When ranchers document
the scientific results with field instruments,
they will be paid for their service to water


management. This is an alternative to state
agencies buying land and building treatment
areas.
Lykes Brothers, Inc., a FRESP partner, has
a cattle ranching operation in Glades Coun-
ty. Their contribution to the water program
involves a marsh by the Indian Prairie Canal.
Intake pumps pull large quantities of wa-
ter from the canal and into the marsh. The
phosphorus in the water will be accumulat-
ed by soil, vegetation and grazing. The water
is then released back into the canal.
Other ranches in the Northern Ever-
glades will re-hydrate necessary wetlands,
and increase the level of the water table in
the watershed soils. Hydrologic monitor-
ing equipment has been installed on these
water management areas; and establishing
payment for services are being studied in


this pilot program.
Phase One occurred within 2006-2009
and covered early implementation and field
testing. Phase Two in 2010-2011 studies pay-
ment for environmental services on eight
volunteer ranches. After 2011, the transition
may include most of the Lake Okeechobee
basin.
Linda McCarthy is working on the Lykes
Brothers ranch as their environmental spe-
cialist at the Water Hole Marsh and Indian
Prairie Canal. She commented that the proj-
ect can only operate when there is enough
water in the basin. In 2006-2007 the drought
made the project inoperable.
"There was not excess water in the basin
and we were not able to operate the West
Water Hole project during the first two wet
seasons of the pilot project. Last year was


the first and only year the West Water Hole
project was in operation," said Linda McCa-
rthy.
The data collected from the FRESP proj-
ect on this ranch during the present wet sea-
son will be documented through the Insti-
tute of Food and Agriculture Sciences (IFAS).
Go to http://www.ifas.ufl.edu/ and find their
search engine on the right side. Type in the
letters FRESP and click GO.
The land for the pilot project is provided
by eight ranch owners. Funding is provided
by U.S. Department of Agriculture's Natural
Resources Conservation Service, Florida's
Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, South Florida Water Management
District and the WK. Kellogg Foundation.
Staff writer Nena Bolan can be reached at nen-
abolan@yahoo.com.
