Leap of faith connects

Glades to China


Christian singer
Sharmane helps with
an adoption
fundraiser, Oct. 17
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES/OKEECHOBEE
When Terri Helfinstine was a little
girl, she saw a TV program about
children living in orphanages in
China. Most of them were little
girls, because the female child
has less appeal in Chinese soci-
ety. Terri desperately wanted a
sister from China back then. Over
the years her desire to adopt from
China grew.
In 2007 she and husband, Jo
seph, were able to adopt locally
through the help of a friend. The
Helfinstines were present during
the birth of their little girl. They
were delighted with her beauty
and personality. However, soon


afterwards, Terri was diagnosed
with breast cancer and received a
double mastectomy. It took a long
six month journey to recuperate,
and all the while she and Joseph
were new parents.
Despite her ordeal, she never
lost her childhood desire to adopt
from China. Her adopted daugh-
ter needed a big sister. However,
there are many rules, regulations
and paperwork. In late July, the
Madison Adoption Agency took
part in the "Journey of Hope"
camp in the Chinese province
of Guangzhou. About 140 older
children and children with special
needs were identified. Terri Helf
instine saw a photo of an 11 year
old girl on their web site. She and
Joseph knew they had found their
big sister, Fan Lingbei. Their ap-
plication was accepted and they
waited to hear from Immigration.
The fact that Fan Lingbei was
11 years old is extremely impor-
tant, because at age 14 orphans

Caroline, a Chinese orphan, will come live with her new family

Clewiston Tigers Snare Gateway Charter Griffins


The Clewiston Tigers posted a well-executed win last Friday, soundly defeating Gateway Charter of Fort Myers, 51-6.


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston took Cane Field Friday night in
terrible overall physical condition with sev
en starters out for injuries and with only 23
.1,, ,,, ,Hi ,I,,I 11 ,,,,,
I I I- i- I. I1- I manpower,
was long on efficiency and execution.
The Tigers scored almost at will in the
first half and then coasted for a 51-6 district
victory over Gateway Charter of Fort Myers.
The Tigers deferred the opening kickoff


and quickly held the Griffins after a short
drive.
Taking the punt at their 25, Gateway
Charter quickly got a taste of what was in
store for the evening.
Senior tailback Chris Herring ran off tack-
le for gains of 14, 15, 16 and 18 yards, with
an Andres Rios pass to wideout TeAngelo
Ulett for 9 yards sandwiched in the midst.
Then, Herring swept for another 15 yards
and the score. Kicker Grant Polhill nailed the


point after, the first of his perfect 7 for 7 night
on kicks.
The Griffins didn't fare as well on their
next possession when defensive corner Da
mion Smith picked off his first of two inter-
ceptions on the night, giving the Tigers the
ball at their 30.
This series it was Herring for three rushes
for 28 yards and two pass completions to
Smith by Rios.
The first catch was for 18 yards and then


a beautiful fly pattern with Smith all alone
for a 35 yard touchdown.
The second period saw the Tigers expand
their ground game to other rushers.
Herring continued pounding the line for
large gains and then Clewiston slipped in
a surprise quick handoff up the middle to
fullback Fred Washington good for 40 yards.
Herring got the final 9 yards to score.

Tigers
Continued From Page 2
Clewiston then picked up two points
when Griffins' quarterback Justin Veras
dropped the ball in the end zone and let a
knee touch the ground as he tried to scoop
it up.
After the free kick by Gateway Charter,
the Tigers just roared down the field again.
With good field position at their 47, Her
ring reeled off a 14 yard pickup, Rios hooked
up with Shomori Butler for a short 4 yard
completion, and then Herring was off to the
races on a 34 yard scoring jaunt.
Clewiston closed out the first half scoring
with Washington and reserve tailback Albert
Dorelien carrying the load.
Washington covered the last 12 yards and
the Tigers went to intermission sporting a
37-0 lead.
Griffins coach Joe Swain elected to use
the running clock option for the second half
due to his squad's deficit of more than 35
points.
Tiger coach Joe Roth freely substituted in


the second half and allowed the entire roster
to gain some valuable game experience.
The Tigers final score from scrimmage
came late in the third period when tailback
Chauncey Thicklin punched it in on an 8
yard run.
The Griffins finally scored midway
through the final stanza after a 9 play, 57-
yard drive against the Tiger substitutes.
On the following kickoff, Shomori Butler
pulled the ball in at the 15 and raced un-
touched for an 85 yard touchdown.
Chris Herring led the offense with 3
touchdowns and 298 yards rushing on 14
carries.
Fred Washington added 89 yards on 6
tries. The Tigers rolled up a massive 380
yards rushing on 32 snaps. Quarterback An-
dres Rios was a perfect 5 for 5 throwing
Defensively, the starting unit held the Grif
fins to a negative 14 yards rushing and 47
passing in the first half.
In addition to Smith's two interceptions,
linebacker J.T. Hill also picked off a pass and
returned it 12 yards to the Griffins' 8 yard line
to set up the touchdown run by Thicklin.
The win improved the Tigers to a 2-4 re-
cord but both wins have come in important


district contests.
After a week off to get healthier, the Ti-
gers will travel the two following weeks to
Lake Placid and LaBelle, respectively, for
more district games.
They close out district play the follow-
ing week with Homecoming at Cane Field
against a tough Dunbar squad.

Officials urge caution wil


Hendry County health officials urge resi-
dents to avoid contact with wild and stray
animals to protect themselves from the risk
of rabies exposure.
In Florida, raccoons, bats, and foxes are
the animals most frequently diagnosed with
rabies.
Other animals that are at high risk for
rabies include skunks, otters, coyotes, bob-
cats, and stray or unvaccinated cats, dogs,
and ferrets.
Each year Hendry County receives re-
ports of rabid animals. In 2009, there have
already been two rabid foxes reported in
Hendry County.
In both of these cases, the foxes were ex
posed to people. One was on July 29, 2009
and the most recent was on September 24,
2009.
"Rabies is a potentially fatal disease. It
is important not to handle wild animals, be
aware of unusual acting animals, and keep
pets vaccinated against rabies," said Brian
Prowant, Environmental Health Director
Hendry County Health Department.
Rabies is transmitted through exposure
to the saliva and nervous tissue from a rabid
animal through a bite, scratch, or contact
with mucous membranes such as the eyes,
nose, or mouth.
Hendry County Health Department works
with City of LaBelle Animal Control and City
of Clewiston Animal Control in responding
to incidents of animal bites.
They also tests animals for rabies through
the Department of Health state laboratory,
and quarantines animals as necessary.

animal bites, which is the only known ef-
fective treatment for rabies prevention in
humans.
The following are steps you can take to
protect yourself and your loved ones against
rabies:
Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for
all pets.
Keep your pets under direct supervision
so they do not come in contact with wild
animals.
If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek
veterinary assistance for the animal imme-
diately and contact city of LaBelle Animal
Control at 863-674-3381 or city of Clewiston

Technology in Digital Mammography r 9

A better mammogram Faster, filmless imaging more clearly. L *.*
.The image -n be viewed more closely 1


By Glenda Wilson
Looking for a faster, more convenient
mammogram?
Hendry Regional Medical Center has en-
hanced its services with the addition of a
new Selenia digital mammography system
from Hologic, the first of its kind in Hendry
County.
"Digital mammography definitely has
advantages for patients," says Ed Chiarelli,
director of HRMC's imaging services depart
ment. "It's quicker, offering a woman the
convenience of having her mammogram
without repeated imagining and exposure to
radiation. For the radiologist, digital mam-
mograms provide more comprehensive vis-
ibility. This translates into a win-win situa-
tion for the patient."


Women will notice little difference when
going for a digital mammogram at HRMC.
The procedure is the same as for tradi
tional film mammography, but it's less time-
consuming, since repeated repositioning of
the breast for additional imaging is not usu-
ally necessary.
The radiologist can process and retrieve
the images faster, and because digital mam-
mography is "filmless," nothing has to be
developed.
Images are analyzed on a monitor and
stored electronically, and hard copies can be
produced if needed.
A better view
When reading the results of a digit mam-
mogram, the radiologist is better able to ma
nipulate the image to see through the breast


and the radiologist can zero in on suspicious
or concerning areas.
The latitude of visualization is better
from the skin line to the chest wall.
Make time for your digital
mammogram
October is Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, and Hendry Regional Medical Center
is offering discounted digital mammograms
during the month of October.

3061.

Local Red Cross responds to


seven fires in first week of



Fire Prevention Month


Now is the time for local residents to take
immediate action in preventing home fires.
Already this week, the Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter of the American Red Cross has
responded to six major home fires within its
service area. The organization has provided
each of the 22 adults and children affected
by these fires with immediate emergency
assistance including shelter, food, clothing,
smoke soap and comfort kits; all at no cost
to the victims.
The following is a list of fires that Red
Cross has responded to in the first week of
Fire Prevention Month. They are listed as
Incident, Date, Location, Number of Adults,
Number of Children and Severity:
House Fire, Oct. 1, 1211 5th Street,
Palmdale, 1,0, Major.
House Fire, Oct. 3, 114 SW 18th Ave,
Okeechobee, 2, 0, Destroyed.
House Fire, Oct.5, 535 N Detil, Clewis-
ton, 2, 2, Destroyed.
SHouse Fire, Oct.6, 3218 Frost Rd, West
Palm Beach, 1, 0, Destroyed.
Mobile Home Fire, Oct.6, 4915 Azalea
St NW, La Belle, 1,4, Destroyed.
Mobile Home Fire, Oct.6, 4915 Azalea
St NW, La Belle, 2, 0, Major.
SHouse Fire, Oct.6, 1831 SE 33rd St,
Okeechobee, 3, 0, Destroyed.
House Fire, Oct.6, 3423 NW 29th Ave.,
2, 2, Minor.
October is fire prevention month. Dur-
ing the month of October, the Red Cross
will spread the message that all individuals
should practice fire safety to avoid home
fires. A home fire can be destructive, costly,
devastating and even deadly; and often oc-
curs without warning. Home fires present
the biggest disaster threat to families across
our nation. Locally, dedicated volunteer
members of the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter respond to house fires once every
30 hours, on average.


This month, individuals who serve on
the organization's volunteer Speakers Bu
reau will increase community appearances,
spreading life-saving fire safety information.
Youth volunteers at the Red Cross will go
door-to-door in a West Palm Beach neigh-
borhood on October 16th, distributing
English and Spanish Fire Safety Tips. Mark
Goggin, Red Cross Manager of Disaster Pre-
paredness and Response emphasizes, "Un-
like other disasters, most home fires can be
prevented." The Red Cross is committed to
giving people the information they need to
reduce their risk of home fires, and to help-
ing people recover after a fire happens.
The Red Cross encourages people to re-
member two key fire safety steps to protect
their home and loved ones from fires: Get a
smoke alarm, and have a fire escape plan.
SSome alarms save lives. Sixty-five per
cent of home fire deaths happen in homes
with no smoke alarms or with smoke
alarms that don't work. Make sure you have
a smoke alarm on every level of your home,
inside bedrooms and outside sleeping areas.
Test your smoke alarm once a month by
pushing the test button, and replace the bat-
teries at least once a year.
Fires can spread throughout your
home in minutes, so when every second
counts, having a plan can help you escape.
Home fire escape plans should include at
least two ways to escape from every room
of your home. Also, select a meeting spot
at a safe distance from your home where
family members can go after escaping. Af
ter discussing your plan with all members
of your household, you should practice the
plan twice a year.
Remember, home fires happen more
often than hurricanes, floods or tornadoes.
Take your family's life into your hands by
practicing fire safety.

Moore Haven's late comeback attempt falls short


In Moore Haven's 23-20 loss to St. Stephens Episcopal, the lone highlight for
quarterback Keonte White was a 65-yard touchdown pass to Terry Hallback in
the third quarter.


INI/Naji Tobias
Moore Haven's Fred Hall, a midseason Hot 25 Super Seniors pick, has scored
15 touchdowns, including two against St. Stephens Episcopal last week.


Glades Central, Glades Day
score big wins

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Time is of essence.
The Moore Haven Terriers know that
concept, as a late comeback attempt fell
short in its 23-20 home loss to St. Stephens
Episcopal.
Down by three with 31.5 seconds left
in the game, Moore Haven needed to drive
down the field 90 yards to secure its fourth
win of the season.
But a series of pass incompletions
doomed the Terriers, as the St. Stephens
defense kept Fred Hall and Keonte White at
bay for the ensuing possession.
On the final play (perf, il
defining moment for both t. ' i
rolled to the right from Moore Haven's 22
yard line, he lobbed a pass to Hall, which
seemed like a catch.
Unfortunately for Hall, the pass was bro-
ken up, sealing the win for the Falcons.
"We had to stop Keonte and Fred," said
Stan Brown, the Falcons head coach.
"I hated scouting against Fred. He's got
heart, he runs the ball hard every time. Ke-
onte is a jitterbug type runner. He has the
moves to make guys miss and the speed to


run past everyone."
St. Stephens, who displayed an eight-
man defensive front for much of the game,
gave White many fits, especially late in the
fourth quarter.

to Terry Hallback in the third quarter.
The long score put Moore Haven back in
the game after being down 23-6 at halftime.
Hall (18 carries, 203 yards, 2 TD) brought
the Terriers crowd to its feet later in the sec-
ond half as Moore Haven was able to cut St.
Stephens lead to 23-20.
But even as Moore Haven's defense set-
tled down late in the game, the damage was
already done.
Moore Haven (1-2 in District 6-1B play;
3-3 overall) looked overmatched in the first
half, allowing St. Stephens running back
Cameron Allen (24 carries, 141 yards, 2 TD)
most of his yardage and both his scores to
give the Falcons that big lead.
St. Stephens threw only six passes in the
game, but that was Brown's plan anyway -
to simply 'run the ball down Moore Haven's
throats.'
"Our linemen have been riding Cam in
the first half," Brown said of the Falcons
game plan.
"We were just executing on the offensive

line, that's all there is to it."
Jason Bond, Moore Haven's head coach,
admitted the first half deficit was 'just too
deep to dig out of.'
"We played a terrible first half," Bond
said. "We didn't block or tackle well. We
can't spot a good team that many points (23)
and expect to come back. But I'm proud of
our kids because they came out and played
hard in the second half."
Believe it or not, Moore Haven is still in
Class IB playoff contention, especially af-
ter Evangelical Christian (last week's No. 2
team in Class IB) was upset byOut-of Door
Academy.
With two losses, Moore Haven will need
some outside help to reach the playoffs.
Out-of-Door Academy and Bradenton
Christian, both 2-0 in District 6-1B play, are
the two leaders as of now.
Those programs are Moore Haven's final
two opponents this season.
Glades Central 44, Boca Raton 7: L.J.
Thomas handily won the quarterback duel
against Boca's Edddie Sullivan, a Wake For-
est commit.
Thomas threw for 355 yards and four

swarming defense forced Sullivan into four
interceptions and just 113 yards passing.

'Youth Alive' 3rd Annual Softball Game a huge success


Wednesday, September 30, 2009 the
Youth Group from the First Baptist Church
of Moore Haven "Youth Alive" held their 3rd
Annual Softball Game. This year's event was
an even bigger success than the last! We had
over 125 Youth as well as many adults attend
ing this event. The members of the "Youth
Alive" group again emceed the whole eve-
ning. First, Rebecca Langdale led the entire
group with a blessing over the food. Then
everyone enjoyed hamburgers and hotdogs.
Lindsey Swaford then welcomed everyone
and explained a little about our Youth Alive
group. She also explained why we started
doing this event and that's because we
wanted to show all the teenagers who might
not normally come to church how we can
have fun and learn about the Grace of God
at the same time! Then we had several of
our Youth lead the crowd in several praise
and worship songs "Youth Alive" style. Af-
ter the music, Warner Ward introduced the
Youth Group from Iglesia de Cristo, who


performed a special skit to the song "I'm
Not Alright". They blessed us all with a very
powerful message about giving all your sins
to Jesus and He would set you free! If you
missed it you missed a blessing!
Next, Hunter Ward introduced our speak-
er for the night Coach Vincent Lewis. He had
a great message for everyone. He encour-
aged all the Youth to do well in school and to
use the talents they have for God. The most
important part of his message was that the
only way to get to Heaven was by believing
in Jesus Christ.He explained to them that it
would be the most important decision they
would ever make in their life. After the mes-
sage, Nick Watson introduced our softball
coaches for the night, Mr. Jamie Brown and
Mr. Tommy Hare. Everyone enjoyed an ex-
citing game of softball, whether they were
playing on the field or sitting in the stands
cheering! We closed the evening out with
the whole group gathering together on the
field in a circle where we were lead in a


closing prayer by Alvin Ward.
There are so many people we need to
thank and we hope to not leave out anyone.
First and foremost, our Lord and Savior Je
sus Christ, for allowing us all to have a fun
and safe time together worshipping Him.
Our Pastor-Sherrill Tillery & Our Church
(First Baptist Church of Moore Haven) for
allowing us to do this again and for support
ing our Youth with their prayers; Church of
Christ, DDLF (Iglesia de Cristo, DDLF) for the
powerful skit performed by their Youth and
for providing the sound equipment; U-Save
for their generous donation; Pedro Navarro
for cooking all the hamburgers & hotdogs;
Chantel Morris, Bryan Stafford, Tony & Kris-
ten Goetting, Jerri Lynn Schlueter and Dr.


John Huysman for serving all those hungry
people; Vincent Lewis for delivering the
awesome message; Jamie Brown and Tom-
my Hare for coaching the game; Scott Bass
and Jamie Brown (again) for allowing us to
use the field and making sure it was ready;
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon; Deputy Watts; Dep-
uty Palma; Alvin Ward for our "stage" as well
as closing us in prayer; Dennis Griffin of Grif
fin Electric & A/C for our electrical needs;
Felinda Langdale for keeping up with our
sign-in sheets; GCYLS for coolers & ice; City
of Moore Haven Employees for securing the
roads around the field; and last but not least
to our wonderful Youth Alive group thanks
to all of you who helped us put this together
you are all a true blessing.

You might be a pastor if...
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I've been told, "I wouldn't have your job
for all the money in the world!"
Others wished they only worked one day
a week for a weeks pay! The Scriptures tell
us: "There's a time to weep and a time to
laugh," and "A cheerful heart is good medi
cine."
Every assignment has its challenges, but
it does us good sometimes to look at our
challenges in a humorous light.
In all that's happening, this Pastor Ap-
preciation Month might be a good time to
laugh and embrace a cheerful heart with
some holy humor!
I am sure you've heard "You might be a
pastor if..." jokes. Here are some of my fa-
vorites:
You might be a pastor if you've ever
dreamed you were preaching only to awak
en and discover that you were.
You'd rather negotiate with terrorists than
the women's group.
You've ever wanted to lay hands on some-
one, and you feel guilty that you weren't
thinking of praying for him.
You've thought of naming your bed "The
Word" and your boat "Visitation."
You jiggle all the commode handles at
the church before you leave.
You can sing along with the congregation
while thinking about the notes of your ser
mon.
And finally, you might be a pastor if you're
leading the church into the 21st century, but
you don't know what you're preaching on
Sunday.
A cheerful heart is good medicine. Here
are some things you can do to give your pas
tor a cheerful heart: If you nod your head
during the sermon, do so because you are in
agreement, not falling asleep.
Take notes during your pastor's preach-
ing, hopefully of the sermon.
Say "amen" when the pastor proclaims
Biblical truth, because "amen" means "so
be it!" and "right on!"
Say "amen" real loud but be careful be-
cause it will shock the pastor and some will
think a revival is beginning.
If you hear someone say "praise the
Lord," stand up and actually do so! People
will be convinced the aforementioned re-
vival really is taking place.
Show up at church workdays so that

To start lots of things or do a
few things well: The Biblical
Model
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Once when I was teaching Religious His-
tory at a Church School, the students would
ask me about test answers.
I gave an essay question one day and a
fifth-grader brought me his answer.
"Is that enough?" he asked. "I don't
know" I answered, "Did you answer the
question?"
He went back and wrote some more,
then came back with the question once
more.
I gave him the same answer. He wrote
some more but didn't ask again.
I reflected that each time he came, he
returned to write some more; apparently
he knew more but just didn't want to put it
down on paper.
It also occurred to me that he was think-
ing about the length of the answer rather
than whether or not it was complete.
I thought about people and their express
sions of faith. We're used to thinking in
quantity; do we do enough to please God?
One clergyman told me about playing
the games on his laptop at the airports while
waiting between flights; and adding, "I guess
I could be writing something or answering
the mail or doing something constructive."
I didn't think of his moment of diversion
as doing anything wrong.
Maybe he was recuperating after a hectic
day and lots of travel, with more travel to be
faced before finally getting home.
He was thinking about the quantity of
work; perhaps he could do a little more.




Prophecy

The Church of God of Prophecy, in Moore
Haven, will have a thrift shop open on Sat-
urdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., all things are
given for a donation, this is to help for ex-
penses of the church.
We feel in helping the church it is helping
you also, with your needs.
All things are nice and clean, these things
are supplied by Cowboy Church -Hand and
Hand Ministries of Palmdale, if you would
like to help us call 863-612-0640, if no an-
swer leave message, God bless you.


Yes, we all could do a little more, but we
don't always do all that we can.
Even God Himself took a day off and rest-
ed from all his work (Genesis 2:2). It wasn't
that there was nothing else for Him to do;
it was that His work was complete for that
segment of things.
Before starting anew, He took time out
to recuperate and then..." And God blessed
the seventh day and made it holy because
on it He rested from all the work of creation
He had done (v.3)."
The way God went about things was to
do a job until it was finished, rest, and then
start on something new.
It wasn't a matter solely of quantity, but
of completeness. My fifth-grader needed to
shift from quantity ("Is that '1 I to
thinking about completeness i. 1 ., an-
swer the question?").
I have found people that feel, and with
some justification, that they always could
have done something more.
Of course!
But it seems we do better when we un
dertake something we can manage, see
them to completion, and then rest a bit be-
fore starting something new.
My home has many projects that I could
undertake.
If I started them all, there would be rooms
full of disassembled or half-finished things
sitting around and maybe they'd never get
done.
I'd probably accomplish less, than by do
ing one thing at a time and finishing it be-
fore going on to something else. I think I'm
in good company.
The Master Builder finished His work be-
fore He moved on.
I can learn from Him.

We have no creed? Can it be
so?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The man on the floor of Madison Square
Garden seem to be paying little attention to
the speaker and may not have heard.
I have no way of knowing how many
watching TV noticed the statement made
by the speaker at the Democratic National
Convention; I for one sat bolt upright at the
statement. "We have no color, no creed..."
We have no creed?
Now, I want to think I know what the
man intended to say but even at that I re-

marked that the speaker should re-think the
meaning of the word "creed."
Did the man intend to say, We have not
creed, we have no beliefs, we don't believe
anything?
I don't think so, after all, I've been taught
the word "creed" has come to us from the
latin word "credo" meaning what is be
lived!
I'm sure the speaker did not intend to
convey the idea that he did not believe any-
thing.
Yet for a lot of people, politicians included,
the statement would be an accurate one.
Leaving the political arena, let's see the
same expression as applied to the church.
Could the church truthfully say, "We have
no creed."
I fear many in our day could say just that,
"We don't believe in anything."
When a body of people that for genera-
tions held firmly to the Bible as the inspired
word of God; treated it and it's teachings as
the only guide to follow, can compromise
and unite with others which are known for
their denial of basic Bible truths -- when
that happens one is caused to question their
creed -if they have one.
A slogan which came from the heart of
restorationism was "No creed but Christ,
no book but the Bible, no name but the di-
vine."
No creed but Christ is that still enough?
Apparently some don't think so, or maybe
they think that is too much.
What is our creed about the Lord's Table?
What do we believe about it? Jesus said,
"This do in remembrance of me."
Some don't place enough importance
upon it to do it at all! What's you creed about
evangelism, world evangelism?
Jesus said, "Go into all the world and
make disciples of all nations." What is your
creed on the subject, or do you have one?
Jesus said, "He that believeth and is bap
tized shall be saved." What is your creed
about faith, repentance, confession and
baptism? What is your creed on these mat-
ters, or do you have one?
Have we no creed?
Yea, a thousand times, Yea!
We do have certain beliefs on these and
other things, because Jesus gave them to
us.
What is your creed?
What do you believe? Put some thought
and study into it. You do have a creed!

Glades Commission meets


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
A presentation on the Lake Hicpochee
and Lake Clewiston restoration projects
highlighted Tuesdays meeting of the Glades
County Board of County Commissioners in
Moore Haven.
Consultant Forest Michael gave a presen-
tation similar to the one he gave to the Lake
Okeechobee Coalition in September.
Most of the land involved is state owned
land and the majority of the Lakes are locat-
ed in Glades County.
Michael, a Landscape Architect, and con-
sultant, said economic development is very
important right now and the project should
move forward.
"It's just important that we look at this
from an exploration standpoint and visual
ize how you and your constituents might
benefit from this," he noted.
Chairman Russell Echols said the 10
County Coalition realizes that small coun-
ties are being asked to bare the brunt of
many restoration projects. He noted Lake
Hicpochee is a good candidate for a cleanup
and restoration.
"It could have some economic value, like
lakefront property, we could see some eco-
nomic benefits from these projects and not
just see land taken out of development," he
noted.
Echols said once the land is taken for the
Everglades restoration there is no chance it
will ever be available for development.
He said large landowners around the
Lake need to be contacted to see how they
might feel about this project.
Commissioner Donna Storter Long said
she would like to see this project pursued.
"It's a great idea."
The 10 County Coalition is expected to
vote on a resolution in December. Glades
officials approved exploring the potential
and the feasibility of these projects.
In other business actions, the Board ap-
proved a budget amendment of $15,045 for
the Supervisor of Elections Office.
They also approved a resolution that con-
tinues the counties current voting system
until 2016.


Supervisor of Elections Holly Whiddon's
resolution said severe economic down pres-
sures and the operational impact of the SOE
budget make it increasingly difficult to pur-
chase new voting equipment.
Commissioners also decided they won't
install and pay for additional street lights in
the County. Commissioner Bob Giesler said
Buckhead Ridge is fortunate because they
f i i.h i. ,l . l .. ll .i.r, ,i .i.
The County does pay for some street
lights like the ones in Washington Park near
Moore Haven.
The County also accepted a clean audit
report from the firm of McGladrey and Pul
len. They did point out the County solid
waste fund has been operated at a deficit
and might be in need of attention.
The Commission also tabled action on a
rezoning proposal for three acres at 29513
US 27 near Moore Haven. The A.C.L. Group,
Inc. want to change the zoning from indus-
trial to open use agriculture. Commission-
ers plan to vote on the proposal on October
26 at 6 pm.
County Manager Wendell Taylor said he
received requests from 21 contractors inter-
ested in bidding on the construction of the
new Health Department building.
Gary Ritter of the South Florida Water
Management District presented an update
on the Northern Everglades restoration ef-
fort.

into storm water treatment areas and or res-
ervoirs.
Ritter said the compensation must be
kept in the forefront as these projects are
developed.
A dedication of the Ortona Park is expect-
ed in December.
Commissioner Giesler said water is slow-
ing down the Pearce Canal restoration. He
estimated the project will not be done by the
target date of Oct. 31.

Share Program has food bargains


The program is open to all
people

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- Pastors Beth and
David Mercer of Living Waters Fellowship
invite Moore Haven community members
and local neighborhoods to participate in
the SHARE FLORIDA FOOD NETWORK,
which lets consumers buy food at afford-
able prices. It is open to all, not just church
members.


No one has to produce proof of income.
Curious residents can show up on the or
der day and take a look at the menus which
have meat and produce. Notice the basic
package at $18 may have poultry, beef,
pork, fish, shellfish, deli meat, fruit and
vegetables. It depends on the menu offered
when you place an order.
There are several menu packages to
choose. After orders are placed, a food
pick-up day is scheduled about 2 weeks
later. Cash or food stamps are accepted.
Last November, Living Waters Fellow
ship sponsored Thanksgiving in the Park
and fed approximately 500 people. Call
Billy Light, David Mercer or Beth Mercer at


863-946-0352 for more information about
calendar dates for orders and dates to re-
ceive your food package.
Living Waters Fellowship is located
at the Wiggins Youth Center on US 27 in
Moore Haven. Go to www.shareflorida.org
and look at the menus and the list of Florida
counties and communities involved.
More information about the next
Thanksgiving in the Park will be shared as
soon as possible.
Last year a share program was begun
in Muse, Clewiston and towns located in
western Palm Beach County.

Training center near Venus rejected


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

HIGHLANDS/GLADES -More than ten
hours were devoted to a Highlands County
public hearing that began at 9 a.m., Oct. 6,
and continued into the evening. Commis-
sioners considered and rejected an Eagle
National Security Training Center zoning
change on property located in the southwest
corner of Highlands County near the com-
munity of Venus. Two-hundred fifty people
or more were at the meeting and scores
were sworn in to testify that day.
The proposed private military train-
ing site, about 7,700 acres, borders neigh-
boring counties of Charlotte, DeSoto and
Glades. The applicant in the public hearing
is Greg Eagle, Cape Coral real estate broker.
The proposed site is about four miles from
Fisheating Creek which flows into Lake
Okeechobee.
The land is owned by Polk County resi-
dent Ron Grigsby, Southern Farms. He ad-
dressed the Highlands County board and
explained the property was cleared prior
to 1994 and contained an orange grove un-
til 2004 when canker ended the operation.
Water use by the training center would be
dramatically lower than the amount that
was needed for the citrus grove. Mr. Grigsby
gave his opinion that it was an opportunity
to raise the value of property in Venus. There
was no study done on increasing property
values.


Louis Carter, soil scientist and environ-
mental consultant, reported that water
would be held by levees and treated before
discharged. He specifically studied Gannett
Slough and retention areas. Louis Carter
gave an opinion there is no evidence the
training center would have a detrimental
effect on the environment. He viewed the
property the day before the Oct. 6 public
hearing.
Tim Eagle, consultant and brother of
the applicant, explained that the Highlands
County site was chosen because of its central
location to big airports. He saw the property
by helicopter and noted that it was largely
cleared. Tim Eagle mentioned the business
plan was drafted by Sunshine Security Man-
agement which would contract to train stu
dents. Gregg Truxton, Eagle attorney, com-
mented the construction budget would be
about $140 million and would generate over
$11 million a year in payroll which will ben-
efit Highlands County. He also mentioned
that it would be a state of the art training
center with input from retired military offi
cers. The applicant's funding would come
from a private lender.
It was noted that Greg Eagle owes more
than $2 million in property taxes to Lee
County dating to 2007, and has about 20
properties facing foreclosure.
Highlands County commissioners re
marked that an analysis was not done on the
effect of aircraft in the community of Venus,
and it is unclear who will inspect the private
military training camp.


Gannett Slough, at different times, can
flow either into the Peace Creek or into
Fisheating Creek, depending on rainfall and
depth of the water table.
Commissioners also noted that Greg Ea
gle, the applicant, and Ron Grigsby, proper-
ty owner, had not met in person with Venus
residents to explain their intentions.
The Venus population is a diverse group
of about 700 people. It includes farm and
ranch families, veterans of foreign wars,
retirees, sportsmen, conservationists, and
workers who commute long distances.
Pertinent issues refer to noise levels,
road traffic, bullet capture, vague references
to foreign trainees, Swallow Tailed Kites,
Fisheating Creek Watershed, black bear,
panthers, white-tailed deer and the region's
program to attract eco-tourism.
Venus residents lined up and took their
turn to speak about 4:30 p.m. Many ex-
pressed they live in Venus because their an-
cestors were early settlers and their people
had resided there for nearly a century. Others
testified that they bought property in Venus
because it is quiet, peaceful, and perpetu-
ates a rare, rural way of life.
"The people in Venus don't want this,"
said Randy Miller.
"Assume your role as our guardians,"
Tom Fennell said to the board of county
commissioners.

Three accidents occur in Glades County


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- A motorcycle acci-
dent occurred Oct. 2, about 6:13 p.m. on
US 27, one mile north of Lykes Road. Flor-
ida Highway Patrol reports there was only
one vehicle involved. Paul M. DeGiovanni,
46, of Davie, was seriously injured when he
failed to negotiate a curve.
Mr. DeGiovanni was driving a 2001 Ka
wasaki motorcycle, and traveling in the out-
side northbound lane when the incident oc-


curred. Estimated speed of the motorcycle
was 75 m.p.h. The driver was transported
by Aeromed 5 to Lee Memorial Hospital in
stable condition. An investigation is pend-
ing, according to an FHP media release.
An accident happened in Muse, Glades
County on Oct. 10 about 11:50 a.m. Nancy
A. Alderman, LaBelle, was traveling east
on CR 720. Her 2005 SUV left the road and
crashed into a tree. The driver had minor
injuries and was taken to Lee Memorial
Hospital.
A third accident occurred in Glades
County on Oct. 11 about 8 p.m. on US 27


near Lykes Road. According to FHP, the
driver Eva Elizabeth Nolasco, 27, was in se-
rious condition as well as two passengers,
Maria E. Mateo, 47, and Geronimo Gusman,
39. The third passenger, four year old Evert
Nolasco was uninjured. All four people are
from Homestead. According to FHP, the
driver of the 2002 pick up truck struck a
deer, and the vehicle left the roadway and
overturned onto its roof. The three injured
people were taken to Hendry Regional
Medical Center in Clewiston.

family or a job. Ms. Helfinstine learned that
there may be 143 million orphans in the
world today. On August 31, she learned that
Fan Lingbei can travel here as soon as the
home study is completed.
One of the disheartening things about
foundlings in China, is the fact that the ba-
bies are not given real names. They are
named after the street or town where they
were found, and their last name takes the
name of the province. Imagine being named
Fort Myers Florida, or Congress Avenue
West Palm Beach. The Helfinstine's adopted
daughter, Fan Lingbei, will receive the family
name of Caroline.
Terri Helfinstine could not sleep at night,
knowing how difficult it would be to travel
all the way to China and fly home with an 11
year old orphan. She worried so much that
she got out of bed and did an internet search
on her own "leap of faith" and the first entry
was for the contemporary Christian singer,
Sharmane Adams. Terri emailed the singer
and soon a phone call was received.
Sharmane offered to do a concert as an
adoption fundraiser in nearby Okeechobee
City. The showwill take place at the First Bap
tist Church at 401 SW 4th Street in Okeecho-
bee on Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. Sharmane Adams
will sing songs from her albums "Leap of
Faith" and "I Surrender". Tickets can be pur-
chased in Lakeport at the Maple Grove Bap
tist Church on SR78, phone 863-946-2850,
or at First Baptist Church in Okeechobee on
Fourth Street, 863-763-2171.

cies.
The estimated $13 million project to re-
store the Moore Haven Canal includes Har-
ney Pond Canal which is a major Lakeport
waterway to Lake Okeechobee. For the past
several years there is a portion of the Harney
Pond Canal that is so shallow it may prohibit
access to the lake. This will be cleaned up
and Harney Pond and the Moore Haven Ca
nal will connect to the deeper McTush Chan-
nel.
Gary Ritter, SFWMD Okeechobee center,
informed the Lakeport audience that the
water district was originally established for
flood control and to protect the water supply
for south Florida from Orlando to Key West.
At that time the population was one-eighth
the size of today's 8 million. Now the SFW-
MD must plan and implement the recovery
of the Kissimmee River, Lake Okeechobee
and the Everglades ecosystem.
Mr. Ritter reports that the restoration of
the Kissimmee River Basin and construction
of stormwater treatment areas in Okeecho-
bee County have greatly attracted tourism
and fishing. The cleanup of the Pearce Canal
in the Glades County community of Buck-
head Ridge is underway and about one-third
complete. He and Russell Echols explained
that the time-consuming, intricate permit-
ting process must be initiated before major
work on waterways can be done.

Lakeport residents participate at a townhall meeting with county commissioners and the water district, Oct. 5. Lakeport
is located on the west bank of Lake Okeechobee.


Lakeport residents voiced their frustra-
tion that many people who live on the rim
canal cannot use the Lakeport Lock because
of closure or shallow water. Residents on
the rim canal cannot use that local access
to reach the lake and must trailer their boats
to other ramps or waterways. Lodging busi-
nesses and residents along the rim canal
have been hurt by loss of customers and loss
of property values. They came here to fish
and enjoy the bird life.


Audience members explained that many
people would use the Lakeport Lock if it
was kept open, not just local residents.
Long-time residents are disgusted that Lake
Okeechobee is no longer a national recre-
ation lake and is mainly used as storage for
the water supply.
Commissioner Paul Beck gave the audi-
ence an example of how obtaining permits
is the only way to get the job done. Permits
are not for general uses, but for exact and


specific purposes.
Mr. Beck explained that a couple of years
ago the SFWMD contracted with Glades
County to remove muck that was exposed
by the drought. He suggested to the agency
that it was an opportunity to also cleanup
Lakeport waterways since heavy equipment
was in use and the drought had dried out the
whole area. However, the permitting did not
contain language for that purpose.
