Gatorama invites visitors for egg hatch


PALMDALE-Do your children
think education is boring? "It
definitely does not have to be,"
say Allen and Patty Register,
owners of Gatorama. It is the
time of year that chirping, grunt-
ing and snapping baby alligators
emerge from their shells to meet
the world. Gatorama is marking
this occasion by hosting an "Al-
ligator Hatching Festival" Aug. 22
through Sept. 1, at their animal
park at 6180 U.S. Highway 27,
Palmdale.
"This is a great opportunity
for parents to teach their children
about one of natures fascinating
life cycles," says Allen Register.
"For the next two weeks we will
welcome over two thousand al-
ligators into the world at Gatora-
ma. Guests will actually be able
to see these little baby alligators
wiggle out of the eggs."
Visitors to Gatorama will also
be able to learn about the histo-
ry of the American alligator and
how the populations have been
protected through one of the
most truly successful, sustain-
able-use management programs
ever implemented. American al-
ligators have been off the endan-
gered species list since 1987 and
populations are still growing. Al-
ligator farming is am important
part of the program.
There will be five programs
Monday through Saturday and
three on Sundays. For guests that
want a hands-on experience,
a "Hatch and Hold" package is
available. This package allows
the guest to actually hold an egg
and let the baby alligator hatch
in their hands.
Gatorama opened in 1957 as
one of Florida's first alligator at-
tractions. Itisstill popular tourist
attraction as well as an operating
alligator farm. One of Gatorama's

Boaters and manatees
pass three navigation
locks from the Gulf to
Lake Okeechobee
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- There are
three navigation locks along the
Caloosahatchee River, which is the
west section of the Okeechobee
Waterway. These locks have large
mechanical gates that open and
close when a vessel locks in and
out. Some of these structures have
acoustic sensors that pick up the
presence of manatee s as they trav-
el up or down river. The detection
sensor allows them to go through
the gates safely.
Manatees travel the west sec-
tion of the Okeechobee Water-
way through estuaries, then up
the Caloosahatchee where they
linger among oxbow vegetation,
and browse through little Lake
Hicpochee. This river route is part
of Florida's Gulf Intracoastal Water-
way. Manatees must swim through
three navigation locks before they
enter Lake Okeechobee.
From the Gulf coast near Ft. My-
ers, manatees and boaters first en-
counter W.P. Franklin Lock, which
was built in 1965. This structure is
about 33 miles east of Ft. Myers in
Lee County near the small com-
munity of Olga. The Franklin Lock
is the spillway that separates the
fresh water of the Caloosahatchee
from salt water of the Gulf.

Clewiston's Pop Warner teams aims for bright season


Jamboree Classic is this
weekend (Aug. 22-23)

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON Ready, set.
Go.
That's what the Clewiston Cougars foot-
ball program is looking forward to do, with
the season beginning this weekend.
The Pop Warner program's six teams are
the Tiny Mites, the Mighty Mites, the Junior
Pee-Wees, the Pee-Wees, the Jr. Midgets and
the Senior Midgets.
As the program looks to build on the suc-
cess it had from last year, one thing certainly
won't change: And that's focusing on the
fundamental basics, which have been key to
each team finishing with a winning record
last season.
Of all the six teams from 2008, it was the
Jr. Midgets who looked the strongest in the
Cougar program.
The Jr. Midgets (10-2 last season) won the
Peace River Conference championship with
a victory over the North Fort Myers Knights.
Unfortunately, that team lost the next
playoff game, a regional contest held in
Tampa.
The Sr. Midgets, who finished with a 6-3
record last season, qualified for the Peace
River Conference playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Pee Wees were 5-4 to fin-
ish the 2008 year, with a first round playoff
loss to the Englewood Wildcats.
As for the Jr. Pee-Wees, they fared even
better, reaching the Peace River Conference
championship game.
The Jr. Pee-Wees loss to the North Port


Mustangs in the championship put them at
9-2 to conclude the 2008 season.
Juan Norton, the Jr. Pee-Wees head
coach, likes to keep this upcoming year and
last in proper perspective.
With 27 players on Norton's team 12 re-
turning and are 15 newcomers he knows
anything can happen this season.
"Our strength is our defense," Norton
said on the Jr. Pee-Wees. "We're very young,
but we'll try to do what we did last season,
and that's sticking to the basics. It carried us
to the playoffs last season."
Cougars fans can expect to see simple
running and passing plays from the Jr. Pee-
Wees at this weekend's Jamboree Classic.
The offensive line will be a key determi-
nant in how far the Jr. Pee-Wees go this sea-
son, with many of them either moving up
from the Mighty Mites or playing football for
the first time.
Most of the returning players are on de-
fense, so it won't be much to ask the players
to stop the opposition's run and passing at-
tacks throughout the year.
The Jr. Pee-Wees, as well as the Pee-
Wees, the Jr. Midgets and the Sr. Midgets,
will be playing in the Jamboree preseason
game Saturday in LaBelle.
First half action will be played against
the LaBelle Longhorns, while the second
half is slated to see the four Cougars teams
and their counterparts from the Naples Hur-
ricanes get into action.
"We won't do anything spectacular this
weekend," Norton said.
The same can't exactly be said for the
Mighty Mites, as they finished last season
with an undefeated 8-0 record.
Incredibly, the Mighty Mites, who field 26
players, haven't lost a game in more than

three years, according to April White, the
Cougars program secretary.
White simple sums up what's expected
from this team in 2009.
"For the Mighty Mites to lose a game this
season, it would be devastating not only to
the kids, but to the coaches as well," she
said.
The Tiny Mites, meanwhile, finished last
season 6-2, with both of its losses coming
to LaBelle.
Neither the Mighty Mites or the Tiny Mites
can qualify for the playoffs, as there's no sys-

tern in place for it.
Nevertheless, both teams will grace Cane
Field on Sunday when they host the Jambo-
ree Classic.
And that's fine with White, who has been
impressed with all six teams thus far.
"All of them are stars," White said of the
Cougars players. "They've been practicing
real hard and now they're looking forward
to the Jamboree."

More Swine Flu deaths are confirmed in Florida


Additional laboratory confirmed HINI
Swine Flu deaths have been verified in that
of the following: A 27-year-old female in Os-
ceola County, a 28-year-old female in Hills-
borough County, a 25-year-old female in
Orange County, a 70-year-old female in Or-
ange County, a 45-year-old female in Dade
County, a 53-year-old male in Dade County, a
60-year-old male in Dade County, a 65-year-
old male in Dade County, and a 53-year-old
male in Lee County.
While most cases of HI N1 Swine Flu are
mild, there are exceptions.
Pre-existing health conditions often play
a role in how individuals react to the flu.
To-date, there have been 41 laboratory
confirmed H1NI Swine Flu deaths in Flor-
ida.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to the
family and friends of these individuals," said
Surgeon General Dr. Ana Viamonte Ros.
"HIN1 Swine Flu, like seasonal flu, can in
some circumstances be very serious, there-
fore, all of us should continue to adhere to
good health practices including, stay home
if sick, cover cough and sneeze, and wash
hands frequently."
All four Department of Health laborato-
ries have received testing supplies from the
Center for Diseases Control and can test
samples to confirm HINI Swine Flu.


Health professionals are encouraging everyone to wash
quently to lessen the spread of diseases like Swine Flu.


This testing capability allows the Depart-
ment to expedite results as we no longer
need to send probable cases to CDC labo-
ratories.
The Department of Health continues en-
hanced surveillance and outreach to physi-
cians, hospitals and other health care profes-
sionals.
The surveillance system, consisting of
sentinel physicians, reporting influenza ac-
tivity, DOH laboratories receiving specimens
from physicians and hospitals and our ability
to monitor emergency room cases and over-

alert level is at Phase 6 "pandemic."
The pandemic (WHO level 6) status is
based on geographic distribution and not
the severity of swine flu.
In effect the WHO is saying that swine flu
H 1N is now circulating world-wide.
The State Surgeon General provided
these recommendations:
People with respiratory illness should stay
home from work or school to avoid spread-
4 ing infections, including influenza, to others
in the community.

the-counter drug sales is fully operational.
We have activated our response plan and
are ready to respond if needed.
Department of Health continues its en-
hanced surveillance with a network of senti-
nel physician providers.
These providers send selected samples of
laboratory specimens to state laboratories
for testing if they have patients with influen-
za-like illness (ILl).
These physicians also continue to re-
port weekly ILI cases to the Department of
Health.


Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.

Wash hands frequently to lessen the
spread of respiratory illness.

People experiencing cough, fever and fa-
tigue, possibly along with diarrhea and vom-
iting, should contact their physician.
If you think you have influenza, please
call your health care provider and discuss
whether you need to be seen in their office,
emergency department or stay home.

HCHD: Quit for your Family's Sake


By: Valarie L. James
Approximately one in five people in the
U.S. still smoke, despite its well-known and
highly publicized negative health effects, in-
cluding cancer and heart disease.
It harms nearly every organ of the body.


Each year, almost half a million Americans
die from this addiction.
Quitting smoking has immediate and
long-term benefits for you and your loved
ones.
There are many effective strategies out
there to help someone quit smoking, but
most smokers don't use them.
Proven interventions, such as assistance
from a health-care provider, medications,
and counseling, can increase a smoker's


chance for success.
Quitting smoking is not easy, but it is
worth the effort.

Walk in the Past: The Treaty of Moultrie Creek


The day Seminoles
relinquished 24 million
acres to the United
States Government

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
La Florida became a United States territo-
ry when the Adams-Onis Treaty was drawn
up in 1819.
In the terms of the treaty, the United
States relinquished claims to parts of Texas
and agreed to pay Spain $5 million for the
territorial rights to Spanish Florida.
Spain ratified the treaty in 1820 and the
United States ratified it in 1821.
The United States now owned La Florida,
a territory whose fertile lands awaited the
southern settler's plows and grazing cattle.
To the Southern settlers, the purchase of
Florida was indeed "Paradise" gained, but to
its Indian and black inhabitants, Florida had
become "Paradise Lost."
The Indian leaders knew they must now
comply with the new government's de-
mands, if there was to be peace between the
Seminole Nation and the United States.
The signatures on the Adam-Onis Trea-
ty's legal documents probably didn't have
sufficient time to dry before the American
representatives were asking the question,
"What are we going to do with the Seminole
Indians and blacks?"
The question was a valid, but very diffi-
cult one to answer because there were no
short-term resolutions to the Indian and
black problem in Florida.
In 1821, the United States became the
guardian of over 5,000 Seminole Indians liv
ing in Florida.
Their villages were scattered across
northern Florida and extended south to
Tampa Bay.
However, most of the Seminoles lived


between the Suwannee River and Alachua,
which was considered by some Americans
as one of the riches and most valuable ter-
ritories in Florida.
One of those Americans was William
P. DuVal, who was appointed Governor of
Florida in 1822.
He advocated whites should have the
rich farmlands and that the Florida Semi-
noles be relocated to Alabama, where some
of the Upper Creeks lived or further west to
the Mississippi.
President James Monroe disagreed with
DuVal's Indian Policy, but later started whis
tling a different tune when white settlers be-
gan pressuring him to remove the Indians
from Florida.
In 1823, President Monroe recommend-
ed the Indians be removed from Florida or
placed on reservations.
The lands out west hadn't been fully
explored by the United States government,
so Secretary of War Calhoun proposed that
commissioners be appointed to negotiate
with the Seminoles and obtain their agree-
ment to move to lands south of Charlotte
Harbor and Peace River.
Calhoun also granted the commission-
ers the authority to move the Indian land
boundary as far north as Tampa Bay, if the
lands south of Peace River were infertile.
Calhoun appointed James Gadson of
South Carolina, Bernardo Suqui of Florida
and William P. DuVal as the commissioners
to negotiate with the Seminoles.
The area selected for the negotiations was
on the north bank of Moultrie Creek, which
was about five miles from St. Augustine.
Approximately 425 Seminoles traveled
from villages as far away as 300 miles to at-
tend the negotiations.
A temporary shelter was constructed for
the negotiations that lasted two weeks.
The Seminole leader, Neamathla, who
had fought against Andrew Jackson in the
First Seminole Indian War, stated that he
was willing to move on a reservation, but

Golden minutes: Aeromed Medical transport


Aeromed fills need in area

By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Medical air transports are all about speed;
getting a critical patient to the best medical
care possible from a remote location.
Now with a permanent base at LaBelle
Airport Aeromed, out of Tampa General
Hospital, is covering calls in Hendry-Glades
and in Charlotte County. They also have a
mutual aid agreement with Lee and Collier
counties.
Beginning last May 1, the company em-
barked on a shared risk program: Aeromed
handles the medical crew and dispatching,
while Air Methods Corporation provides the
aircraft, pilot and mechanics.
According to Public Safety Director
Randy Bengston, the partnership has thus
far been "outstanding," Mr. Bengston has a
unique perspective on Aeromed, both as a
long time emergency medical professional
and as a former patient. It was an Aeromed
team that transported him in an emergency
situation about a year ago. In addition to
excellent medical care in flight, he said the
crew's report to the doctors at the hospital
was very professional. Mr. Bengston quickly
adds that it's not his status as the county's
top emergency officer that earned this treat-
ment. "Everybody says the same thing," he
assures you. It's just the standard Aeromed
performance.
"Aeromed offers another option for pa-
tients," Mr. Bengston said. Hendry County
also uses air flight transports out of Lee, Col-
lier, Martin counties and Miami on occasion,
depending on availability. However, having
Aeromed located in LaBelle expedites pa-
tient care.
Dubbed Aeromed 5, the LaBelle Airport
station joins four other Aeromed sites: Tam-
pa, Sebring, Wildwood and Bartow.
Chief Flight Nurse Dan Kresge heads up
crews that pair up a nurse/paramedic like
himself with a paramedic. They typically
work 24-hour shifts. The mobile home be-
side the Aeromed hangar provides a home
away from home for the medical crew. A pi-
lot, working a 12-hour shift, rounds out the
team.
Mechanics work regular shifts, keeping
the 40' twin engine EC 135 helicopter that


is the workhorse of the operation in good
repair. The $3.5 million machine averages
about 30 hours flying time per month. That
may not sound like a lot, but those hours
represent critical minutes when a life is in
the balance.
Aeromed requires five years critical ex-
perience for RNs and for paramedics in an
Emergency Medical Services position. Dan
said Aeromed medical crews average ten
years experience per member. Most Aer-
omed pilots were military trained with an
average flight time of some 6,000 hours.
Pilot John Barber said the biggest dif-
ference in flying medical transport is that
they're landing on roads or off-road areas
that are not as controlled as an airport.
Dan explains what happens when a call
comes through. A Hendry County ambu-
lance team arrives at the scene and con-
cludes that they need a helicopter transport.
They call their dispatcher, who calls the
Aeromed dispatcher and a team takes off.
Using GPS coordinates, the flight team con-
tacts the local crew at the landing zone.
The local fire department team at the
scene sets up the landing zone and secures
it by clearing the ground. The LZ is usually
marked with a strobe light at night or cones
by day.
At the scene, the Aeromed team assess-
es the patient. Trauma victims are usually
taken to Lee Memorial about a 15 minute
flight from Hendry County.
According to Mr. Bengston, there are 47
established landing zones in Hendry County
although several, including Pioneer Shell,
Southern Gardens, Airglades and the LaBelle
Airport are primary locations.
Pilot John Barber began as a helicop-
ter pilot in Viet Nam in 1971. He said he's
"amazed at what they do in the back," es-
pecially when you consider the jostling that
can happen in the air.
John said, from a pilot's perspective, the
worst calls are usually at night in marginal
weather. Dan said the biggest medical chal-
lenge is usually a trauma alert or big car
crash. "Nobody likes pediatric calls," he
said, "but we're glad we're there." Burns are
tough, too, he added.
Paramedic Noah Connell has six years
experience in the medical field. He's been
on the job with Aeromed for three months.
He also works on the Seminole Tribe Fire

Department at Brighton Reservation.
When not on a call, the team stays busy
with routine education and daily duties.
Dan helped set up Aeromed 3 and 4 and
understands the need to develop close rela-
tionships with the local fire departments. He
wanted to thank Hendry County Fire/EMS
for the red carpet they've rolled out for Aer-
omed and the smooth incorporation of its
services into the county.
Patients are billed for the service. Mr.
Bengston said all the county had to provide
was a certificate of need. In fact, Aeromed
rents the doublewide trailer at the airport for
its personnel, along with half of the Fixed


Base Operator hangar and office space.
They also purchase fuel from the county.
Altogether, it's a "win-win" situation for the
county, Mr. Bengston said.
Tom Vaughan, manager for both the
LaBelle Airport and Airglades, echoes that
statement. "They're being here is a good
benefit from an economic standpoint in
addition to providing a service for the com-
munity," he said adding that, with this eco-
nomic downturn, they help make up for the
loss in income from general aviation.
Aeromed provides the inestimable com-
ponent of time to critical medical emergen-
cies at no cost to the county.


INI/Patty Brant
Aeromed, at no cost to the county itself, will be providing emergency coverage
to the residents of Hendry County.

Higher education: Partnering with EC Campus


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
The Edison State College Hendry-Glades
site is poised to usher in a partnership with
the surrounding community.
In fact, the collaboration of the school
and the community is Dr. Pat Land's top
priority. Dr. Land is the Charlotte Campus
President. She took over the Hendry/Glades
campus last August.
Dr. Land said her ultimate goal is for the
community to develop a feeling of owner-
ship of the college. She wants the commu-
nity to feel at home there, treating it as a
central part of its life. She not only envisions
it as a favorite place for meetings and events,
but as the center for equipping a qualified
workforce.
Dr. Land looks forward to a time when
LaBelle will be considered a "college town"
with integration between the college and
the community as a whole.
The Hendry/Glades campus has two full
time instructors Math and English along
with a number of part time instructors in
various classes. Although the Hendry/Glades
campus has a limited staff, EC maximizes
its teaching resources by sharing expertise
between campuses. In addition to LaBelle,
students are attracted to this campus from
Clewiston, Moore Haven and Immokalee.
For about ten years, the Hendry/Glades
site, which until this month was located on
the LaBelle High School campus, held night
classes with a part-time faculty only.
By contrast, when classes begin on Au-
gust 24, the new campus will provide day
time classes for the first time, in addition to
the on-site evening and distance learning
classes local EC students have become ac-
customed to. For small on-site classes, two-
way audio-video hook-ups will provide a
link to ongoing main campus classes.
No access to a computer at home no lon-
ger bars the way to a higher education. Stu-
dents who do not have a computer at home
may use an open computer lab on campus,
affording them access to that important re-
source.
Hendry-Glades students will also have ac-
cess to a quiet room for individual study and
a group study room for projects and open
discussion.


Students may make an appointment with
a tutor in the math or reading center and
there are rooms for remedial counseling and
peer tutoring.
With almost everything on line these
days, the library has an electronic database.
Still couriers can bring books as needed
from the Fort Myers or Charlotte Campus.
The college will continue to cater to adult


fit for the community, Dr. Land explains.
Even Dr. Land is surprised at how quickly
this campus is growing. She said the Curtis
endowment provided funds to renovate and
purchase this facility. She said it's a "good
investment," but even so hopes to build a
more extensive campus on SR 80 one day.
She points out that the pursuit of grants
for a specialized facility to study biofuel pos-

Glades for ten years. He is an alumnus and a student in the business man-

School studying to become a dental hygienist. Patricia is entering her third se-

students with evening classes, but will now
be more equipped to provide for daytime
students as well.
Dr. Land is no stranger to this area. Her
first teaching assignment was at Clewis-
ton Middle School in the 1970s, where she
taught English for two years. She lived in
Port LaBelle. This fourth generation Florid-
ian, born in Tampa, then moved to Tennes-
see for 25 years. In 2002 she came to Edison
College.
The college is currently screening candi-
dates, hoping to hire a dean for the Hendry-
Glades campus. Dr. Land said there are a
number of good candidates from all over
the country going through the process. They
will be meeting community leaders. Since
the ultimate choice will be required to live in
this community, he or she must be the right

tian School site.


sibilities is one way the campus could make
its way into the future. What lies ahead for
the college is unknown, but Dr. Land be-
lieves that it will be a collaboration with the
community that will lay the path to that fu-
ture,
Christy Gilfert, Director of Student Servic-
es at Charlotte, is responsible for developing
student programing at Hendry/Glades and is
currently filling in for Brooke Bruhn, who is
on maternity leave.


Ms. Gilfert said she is looking at the en-
rollment patterns of younger students to
expand course selections. She said these
students seem to be excited about this new
college campus.
As of August 12, enrollment at the Hen-
dry Glades Campus was 375. With a typical
enrollment of 450-500 students, staff is con-
fident this year will meet or exceed those fig-
ures. Even so, Ms. Gilfert said many students
are taking fewer classes perhaps a sign of
the weak economy. Students may continue
to register through August 28.
Look for additional courses to be added.
The campus is also geared toward pro-
viding non-credit training programs with
the Economic Development Council. These
types of programs help provide a ready
workforce, thereby recruiting businesses to
the area or helping local established busi-
nesses enhance employee skills.
Dr. Land has high expectations for this
campus. She foresees that, in just a few short
years, it will have outgrown this facility and
that big campus on SR. 80 will be a reality.
She sees this facility offering a full compli-
ment of programs. In short, she visualizes a
bright future for Hendry-Glades.
She is sure this center will evolve differ-
ently than Charlotte or the other EC campus-
es, reflecting the different needs of this com-
munity, "This site will go where the county
needs to go," she said, "This is a community
to be proud of."
Dr. Land hopes to provide a strong col-
lege experience to the community and feels
involving the chamber of commerce and
the Hendry County Economic Development
Council is step one.
In her view, "The community needs a
bright light." She is sure that Edison State
College Hendry-Glades will be that light
and that the two will move into the future
together.

Glades campus at 675-0408 in LaBelle.

With school year beginning, preparing for Swine Flu


Hendry and Glades Counties As schools
begin the 2009/10 school year, the Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments are
working with the Hendry and Glades County
School Districts in making preparation for
what health officials say will be the next
wave of H1N1 (Swine) Flu cases.
"The partnership between the health
departments and the schools is essential in
preparing for the HINI/Swine Flu and the
seasonal flu season. We also request that
parents join us in the promotion of good
hand washing and other healthy habits. The
most important thing we can ask parents is
to please keep their child home from school
if they are sick" said Pat Dobbins, R.N., M.S./
H.S.A., Administrator for the Hendry and
Glades County Health Departments.
The following steps have been put in
place to address H IN 1 (Swine) Flu concerns
during the 2009/10 school year:

Increased awareness by school staff
to identify students exhibiting flu-like symp-
toms;


Custodial duties increased focus and
frequency of cleaning commonly touched
areas such as doorknobs, computer key
boards, light switches, handrails, etc.

Students with flu-like symptoms will be
sent to the school's office for evaluation by a
Clinic Assistant and/or School Nurse.

Clinic Assistant and/or School Nurse
will determine if a sick child should be iso-
lated due to their symptoms (Schools will
identify an area where students can be iso-
lated from general student body).

Parents/guardians of the isolated stu-
dents will be contacted and requested to
pick up their child as soon as possible.

Students with influenza-like illness
must remain at home for at least 24 hours
after their fever has completely gone away
(some medicines can reduce fever, but the
child may still need to stay home) (A fever
is a temperature which is higher than 100


degrees).

If the child's symptoms continue or get
worse, parents should seek medical care
from their health care provider.

Students will be allowed to use hand
sanitizers at school under the supervision of
adults.

Hendry and Glades County Health De-
partments and Hendry and Glades County
School Districts will continue to work closely
together monitoring and evaluating the situ-
ation to determine if any additional steps or
actions are necessary.

In addition, the Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments and the Hendry
and Glades County School Districts want to
stress the following actions to help minimize
the affects of the anticipated wave of H1N1/
Swine Flu cases to our communities:

Stay at home: If you or your children


are sick, stay at home at least 24 hours after
your fever has completely gone away.

If symptoms continue or get worse,
please see your health care provider.

Cover Your Cough: You should cough
or sneeze into a tissue (and throw that tissue
away) or sneeze into the bend in your elbow
to avoid contaminating your hands.

Wash Your Hands: Vigorous hand
washing with soap and water for twenty
seconds however, if soap and water are not
available, please use an approved hand sani-
tizer.

Avoid: Avoid close contact with peo-
ple who are coughing or otherwise appear
sick.

Don't Touch: Avoid touching your
eyes, nose and mouth.

Six simple



steps to



prepare



for severe



weather
Create a family disaster plan The
Department of Commerce (DOC) recom-
mends that families create a disaster plan
that they practice and maintain. The DOC
suggests the plan include instructions for
evacuations, health emergencies, safety,
loss of water, gas, electricity and/or tele-
phone.
Know the difference between watch
and warning A severe weather WATCH
means conditions are possible in the
specified area usually within 36 hours. A
severe weather WARNING means condi-
tions are expected in the specified area
within 24 hours.
Inspect home and yard for poten-
tial hazards The Home Safety Council
(HSC) advises homeowners to remove
outdoor items such as lawn furniture and
trash cans as they may become airborne
during a severe storm. It also is impor-
tant to trim or cut down weak trees and
branches which are easily broken off by
high winds and may damage a home.
Severe weather can bring intense rain-
fall. The HSC recommends homeowners
keep rain gutters, outside stairwells, win-
dow wells, drain lines and down spouts
clean to prevent flooding.
Secure backup power Flashlights
cannot power refrigerators or life-saving
medical equipment and candles are dan-
gerous. The only way to ensure access to
power when a power outage occurs is to
install an automatic standby generator.
The American Red Cross suggests that
for power outages, permanently installed
stationary generators are better suited
for providing backup power to the home
than portable generators.
Protect your home's openings -
The National Institute for Business and
Home Safety (IBHS) lists the protection
of openings as one of the most important
precautions homeowners can take to im-
prove the chance their home will survive
a storm. Openings include all windows,
entry doors, sliding glass doors, garage
doors and gable end vents.
Check your insurance policy Most
homeowner policies do not cover dam-
age from flooding that may result from
a hurricane or severe weather. Ask an
insurance agent or emergency manage-
ment office for information about the Na-
tional Flood Insurance Program or other
flood insurance programs.


Phosphorus reduction passes quality requirement


Stormwater Treatment Areas treat water before it enters the Everglades, ridding it of phosphorus agents.


West Palm Beach, FL For the 14th con-
secutive year, water flowing out of the farm-
lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area
(EAA) and into the Everglades achieved
phosphorus reductions that were again bet-
ter than the 25 percent reduction required
by law.
With the continued implementation of
improved farming techniques, results for the
2009 monitoring period show a 68 percent
phosphorus reduction in the 500,000-acre
EAA farming region south of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
"The region's agricultural community has
continually strengthened its commitment to
protecting and improving South Florida's
ecosystems," said SFWMD Governing Board
Chair Eric Buermann.
"The solid performance record and con-
tinued commitment will serve to further im-
prove water quality."
Phosphorus reductions were largely
achieved through Best Management Prac-
tices, or BMPs.
BMPs are improved ways of farming -
all with the goal of improving water quality.
In the EAA, the most commonly used
BMPs are improved fertilizer application, im-
proved stormwater pumping practices and
erosion controls to reduce the amount of
phosphorus discharge to the Everglades and
connected water bodies.
Phosphorus can harm the Everglades
ecosystem when stormwater runoff carries
excess amounts into the protected wet-
lands.
To meet the requirements of Florida's
Everglades Forever Act, the amount of phos-
phorus leaving the EAA must be 25 percent
less than before phosphorus-reduction ef-
forts started.
Data for the 2009 annual monitoring pe-
riod show that a 68-percent phosphorus re-
duction was achieved this year.
The average reduction from the imple-
mentation of BMPs over the program's 14-
year history is 54 percent, more than twice


the amount required by law.
When measured in actual mass, 278 met-
ric tons of phosphorus were prevented from
entering the regional canal system, which
sends water into the Everglades, during the
monitoring period from May 1, 2008, to April
30, 2009.
Over the past 14 years, the BMP program
kept approximately 2,000 metric tons of
phosphorus out of the Everglades.
Together with best farming practices,
water leaving the EAA receives additional
treatment in one of several Stormwater
Treatment Areas (STAs) before entering the
Everglades.
These wetlands constructed by the
SFWMD are filled with native vegetation
and use "green" technology to further re-
duce phosphorus levels.
Since 1994, STAs south of Lake Okeecho-
bee with a combined area of more than
52,000 acres have retained more than
1,200 metric tons of phosphorus that would
have otherwise entered the Everglades.
The latest data indicate that through
treatment wetlands and the BMP program,
more than 3,200 metric tons of phosphorus
have been prevented from entering the Ev-
erglades.
Overall, Florida has invested more than
$1.8 billion to improve Everglades water
quality since 1994.
While the EAA continues to meet its tar-
gets, work is continuing to improve water
quality in the C-139 Basin, approximately
170,000 acres of primarily pasture land, row
crops, citrus and sugarcane located west of
the EAA.
Unlike the EAA, the predominantly sandy
soils and gravity drainage within the C-139
Basin present unique challenges to achiev-
ing nutrient reductions.
While the C-139 Basin achieved phos-
phorus reduction goals in 2008, results for
Water Year 2009 (May 1, 2008 April 30,
2009) indicate the basin fell short of targets
in the Everglades Forever Act. A BMP pro-


Photo/sfwmd.gov


gram has been in place for seven years in
the C-139 Basin.
The District is currently expanding sev-
eral water quality improvement projects to
further enhance its water cleaning efforts:
*The SFWMD Governing Board ap-
proved a 4,656-acre expansion of treatment
wetlands in southeast Hendry County. Con-
struction of "Compartment C," a $47.5 mil-
lion investment in restoration, will conned
two existing Stormwater Treatment Areas
(STA-5 and STA-6) in the EAA and more than
double water treatment capability at the
site.
*The renovation of Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 5 in Hendry County is enhancing
plant growth and water movement through
the 8,000-acre treatment marsh.
District crews moved 407,270 cubic yards
of soil in STA-5, shaping the land surface
more evenly so that a larger area of wet-
land vegetation can improve the treatment
area's ability to remove phosphorus from
Everglades-bound waters.
The District's historic plan to purchase
land from the U.S. Sugar Corporation repre-
sents the next step in improving Everglades
water quality, complementing the BMP pro-
gram with a managed system of storage and
treatment to protect Florida's coastal estuar-
ies and to better revive, restore and preserve
the fabled River of Grass.
Environmental benefits include:
*Increasing water storage to reduce
harmful freshwater discharges from Lake
Okeechobee to Florida's coastal rivers and
estuaries.
Improving delivery of cleaner water to
the Everglades.
Preventing tons of phosphorus from en
tering the Everglades.
*Eliminating the need for "back-pump-
ing" water into Lake Okeechobee.

water quality improvement initiatives, please

Water Quality Improvements [PDF].

Lord of all Creation
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
God's wisdom is seen in the making of
the elephant.
The four legs of the elephant all bend for-
ward in the same direction.
No other quadruped is so made.
Because of this, elephants, with their
great mass, can rise up from a prone posi-
tion.
Horses rise up from the ground on their
two front legs first.
Cows rise from the ground first by their
hind legs.
It's amazing how our Creator God has
put everything together.
Watermelons have an even number of
stripes on them.
Oranges have an even number of seg-
ments.
An ear of corn has an even number of
rows, and each stalk of wheat has an even
number of grains.
Every bunch of bananas has an even
number of bananas, and each row decreas-
es by one.
And I've been told that ocean waves roll
in on shore twenty-six per minute in all kinds
of weather.
Looking around, we can see God in all
creation, and realize even more fully that our
Lord has an order for His creation so that it
will carry out plans and purposes.
How great it is to think about the way our
Creator God planned everything so carefully,
everything with a plan.
God is all around us, evidenced in His
creation.
It brings to mind the words of the great
hymn; "0 Lord, my God, when I in awe-
some wonder, consider all the worlds Thy
hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the
rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the
universe displayed..... When through the
woods and forest glades I wander, and hear
the birds sing sweetly in the trees.... Then
sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How
Great Thou art, how great Thou art!"
"For since the creation of the world God's
invisible qualities His eternal power and
divine nature--have been clearly seen, be-
ing understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse." Romans
1:20.

Conscientiousness!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Our word "conscience" is derived from
two Latin words "con" and "scio". "Con"
means "with" and "scio" means "know".
From "scio" we have our common word
"science".
So, conscience simply means "con-sci-
ence", or "know with" or "agree with".
The conscience is a faculty that passes
judgment upon a man's own thoughts, feel-
ings, and actions.
These are judged to be either good or
bad, depending upon what they are, and
how a man has been taught to look upon
them.
If a man has been correctly schooled and
does right, he has a good conscience.
If he has been correctly taught, but does
wrong, he had a bad conscience.
If he has been incorrectly instructed, but
acts according to his teaching (which is
wrong), he will have a good conscience.
Thus, it was with Paul, who, though he
did many things that were right and few
things that were wrong, "lived in all good
conscience until" the day that he spoke
(Acts 23:1).
For a man to have a good conscience or
a bad conscience is no accurate measure of
his thoughts, feelings, or actions.
A bad conscience is one that has not
been honored by the best of man's ability
to think, feel, and act as he had been taught
that he should.
It is apparent then, that when we call
"bad" conscience is one that reproves a
man's thoughts and feelings, or actions (or
all three) as not being what they should be,
and that a "good" conscience is one that ap-
proves a man's thoughts, feelings, and ac-
tions as being what they should be.
Conscienteousness is having knowledge
influenced by the conscience.
It is allowing thoughts only that have
been censured by the inner man.
It is permitting feelings only that have
been approved by a man's best self.
It is consenting to actions only that have
been consented to by one's ideal.
Applied, it is living the way we would se-
cretly wish to live if it were convenient; living
the way we would advise others to live.
As far as God is concerned, unless an


awakened conscience smites one to act
immediately, a man ceases to have a good
conscience.
If the consceince smites once, it is con-
viction, but if he must smite twice, it is con-
demnaton.
Don't forget, that in order for the con-
science to be a safe guide, it must be fed the
TRUTH!
One can feed his mind falsehoods and
thus rest in false security.
Instead of "always letting your conscience
by your guide" a much better motto would
be "always let THE BIBLE be your guide"!
For Jesus said, "and ye shall know the
TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you free"
and "thy word is TRUTH 0 God."

Revelation: Gifts and
challenges, and more
than just a book
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
People say bad things about growing
old.
Try as we may, it's still happening and
nobody has come up with an antidote for
the outcome.
That seems like how God intended it to
be.
However, He has given us some ways to
abundant life while we're still on His earth;
to use, to savor, to enjoy, to be thankful.
I remember having read in the Bible one
of the typical signs of old age.
"Isaac was old, his eyes were so weak
he could no longer see (Genesis 27:1)" and
Moses being a noted exception; "Moses was
one hundred twenty years old when he died,
yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength
gone (Deuteronomy 34:7)" are two exam-
ples.
Eli, who mentored Samuel was described
as "very old (1 Samuel 2:22) and "...whose
eyes were becoming so weak that he could
barely see... (ch. 3, v. 2)" is another reminder
that age somehow brings limited vision.
It also brings problems with knees and
backs.
In the evolutionary chain of development,
one of the last things to be accomplished
was walking upright; knees and backs are
still in need of perfection.

Ask anyone with a cane or a walker; they
can tell you about what wears out first!
Today, there are interventions and re-
placements that make possible getting
around without pain or paralysis.
A T.V documentary the other evening fea-
tured a completely paralyzed scientist send-
ing messages via his computer, monitoring
his brain waves and in turn allowing him to
compose messages solely by his thoughts.
Another woman controlled a wheel chair
through her mental processes only; direct-
ing it toward the door of her home and then
turning it around.
The fountain of youth is still a myth; but
the amelioration of living is ours.
I choose to see it as a gift from God.
The eyes that used to grow dim now see;
and sometimes see better than ever before;
the limitations of mobility are no longer as
limiting, and many walk or even play sports
when they were formerly confined.
We are verging on ways of combining
our very wishes to move or communicate
with electro-mechanical ways to overcome
all sorts of handicaps.
Where does God have a place in it all?
I choose to see it as revelation.
In the midst of all of the problems we
face; the environment, the economy, the job
market, the ongoing wars, the depletion of
needed resources, God is making it possible
for us to still be around and live well!
He seems to be saying "I'll make your life
better, now solve your problems and be able
to make full use of the gift of a long and bet-
ter life here!"
God is saying "Care for my world, stop
senseless tragedies, make use of the things
you have learned to give you a better life,
love one another...." and with it will come a
foretaste of Heaven.
God has given us many ways to enjoy it;
the rest is up to us!

Manatees
Continued From Page 1
an RV park on the north side of the structure,
and a picnic area and boat ramp are on the
south side. Visitors can get to the RV park by
way of S.R. 78 on the north side, and they
can find the picnic area and boat ramp on
the south side from Old Olga Road off of S.R.
80. This summer 2009, the lock was closed
for a brief time while a manatee sensor was
installed onto the gates. Sometimes tourists
are able to see manatees and their calves
from the Franklin Lock area.
Traveling further east, manatees and
boaters come to the Ortona Lock which was
built in 1937 by the Corps of Engineers. The
structure is found in the small community
of Ortona on the north side of the river. The
Ortona Public Use Area is an RV park on the
south side, and is commonly known as the
Ortona South Campground.
Visitors can find the lock and the Ortona
community in Glades County off of S.R. 78.
The campground is accessible on the south
side of the river by way of S.R. 80. A large
boardwalk and observation area let tourists
get a nice view of manatees if they are pres-
ent during their migration.
The Moore Haven Lock is further east


another 15.5 miles. It was first built in 1918
when Moore Haven was the new county
seat for Glades County. It was reconstructed
in 1935, and is part of the historic section in
this river city; which is located at the original
headwaters to Lake Okeechobee. Manatees
have been seen in the area in the spring, and
one was sighted in mid-June near the span
bridge and Fisherman's Village neighbor-
hood.
Manatees are mammals that live their
entire lives in water, and rise to the surface
to breath. They forage in Florida's ocean
waters, and migrate to inland fresh water in
the winter season. They are also known as
sea cows because they are slow moving and
graze on aquatic vegetation.
The large sea mammals have front flip-
pers and a broad, flat tail. Some people think
a manatee looks like a walrus only there are
no tusks. They feed on water plants and rise
to the surface about every four minutes to in-
hale fresh air. A mature manatee can weigh
more than one thousand pounds, and grow
longer than 10 feet.
These grazing sea cows are protected by
federal law, and boaters must be observant
because boat propellers will kill or severely
maim them. For more information go to
www.fwc.com.

main attractions for visitors and professional
