Glades I
Bass management,
navigable waterways
and safe boating
contribute to
recreation hotspot
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- The west
shore of Lake Okeechobee is bor-
dered by Glades County, which
has depended on recreational
and commercial fisheries since
the early 1900's.
Lately, community associa-
tions, county commissioners and
the Moore Haven city council have
come together to plan revitalizing
sport fishing, boating and tourism
in the area. Waterways and hiking
trails projects have begun in ear-


County
nest within the last few years.
Specifically targeted are the
Florida Scenic Trail with its trail
head in Moore Haven, the clean-
ing of Pearce Canal in Buckhead
Ridge; and the cleaning of Moore
Haven Canal with new trail and
park amenities, which will tie in
with the Harney Pond Canal in
Lakeport.
The Florida Trail Association
just completed a conference at
Fisheating Creek State Camp-
ground on Oct. 30-31.
The cleanup of the Pearce
Canal has a tentative comple-
tion date in January 2010. The
dredged waterway will allow the
fishing village of Buckhead Ridge
to resume its angler's way of life
and to maintain property values.
The Moore Haven Canal proj-
ect will provide a way for visitors
and residents to view the beauty

The health of the largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and cat-

destination.



ts historic home


L. The restoration was done with
grant funds from Florida Power
and Light, volunteers and elbow
grease. The home was quite a
shambles when they first got start-
ed, and it looked like an impos-
sible undertaking.
With encouragement and fos-
tering from society member, Larry
Luckey, property appraiser, the
make-over was a success. The Hal-
loween visitors were pleased with
the quaint decor, and they learned
that more needs to be done.
The Westergaard House is


sparsely furnished and more an-
tiques or replicas are needed to
complete its 1920's look. Most
importantly, the society needs
to raise more funds for a pristine
kitchen stove and refrigerator, or
quality reproductions.
The historical society does
not claim the Peter Westergaard
House only for themselves. They
believe the home belongs to the
entire community.
"This belongs to you," said

Stomach Pain and symptoms: Show us where it hurts


By: Dr. Leonard
Carroll, Board-
Certified General
Surgeon
(Member of the Society of
American Gastrointestinal and
Endoscopic Surgeons)
"Could it be something I
ate?" You may wonder this
as you clutch your stomach
in pain. While a spicy meal
might cause you to have an
upset stomach, some symp-
toms may indicate a more seri-
ous condition. Where does it
hurt?

some cases, gastritis


tine, which helps you
to digest fats. Acute
inflammation of the
gallbladder may begin
suddenly, resulting in
severe, steady pain in
the upper abdomen.
Problems of the gall-
bladder include gall-
stones, pancreatitis,
and even gallbladder
cancer.
Upper Left
Abdomen
What it could be:
Gastritis or Ulcer Dis-
ease
Gastritis can be
described as inflam-
mation of the lining
of your stomach. In
can lead to ulcers or


an increased risk of stomach cancer. Symp-
toms may include upper abdominal pain
on the left side, vomiting blood, dark stools,
and loss of appetite.
Your Navel Area
What it could be: Appendicitis
A small, finger-shaped pouch, located
on the lower right side of your abdomen,
the appendix can be inflamed and infected
when its opening is blocked. Pain is nor-
mally first felt around the navel area, but
can also extend to the sides or back. While
symptoms vary from a feeling of discomfort
to severe pain, you should seek help if you
have moderate abdominal pain for more
than four hours.
The Abdominal Wall
What it could be: A Hernia
While many different types of hernias
exist, hernias typically occur due to muscle
weakness in and around the abdomen. A
hernia can occur when an organ or tissue


comes through a weakened cavity wall.
Those with hernias often complain of ab-
dominal pain and swelling, fever, and vomit-
ing.
The Lower Abdomen
What it could be: Colitis, Diverticulitis,
Polyps, or Cancer
Lower abdominal pain can be associated
with Colitis (bowel disease), Diverticulitis
(swelling and inflammation of an abnormal
pouch in the intestinal wall), or Polyps (piec-
es of tissue that can grow in the large intes-
tine or colon). Your symptoms may include
cramping, bleeding, fatigue, chills, etc.
If you are experiencing any of the above
symptoms, contact your family physician,
or visit the surgery team at Hendry Regional
Specialty Group. Call 863-983-5026.

Swine Flu Another Priority Attention all


By Pat Dobbins
Please know that the Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments are working
very hard to organize vaccination schedules
for the targeted populations which include
the children of our communities.
Soon, students in Middle and High
Schools will bring home consent forms for
parents to fill out completely, sign and return
to the schools.
We are working closely with the schools
in Hendry and Glades Counties to schedule
vaccinations.
At this time, parents of Elementary School
Students will need to bring their child to one
of the vaccination "after-hours" clinics.
Please note: Students that are 9 years of
age and under will need two doses of the
vaccine (30 days apart), so we are asking
parents to bring those children to our sched-
uled vaccination clinics as well.


lM R r


If you have questions or concerns about
the vaccine, please talk to your local health-
care provider or the local health department.
You can also call the Florida Flu Information
Line at 1-877-352-3581.
These vaccinations are voluntary and
free.
Please keep in mind that these dates are
proposed and may change due to the avail-
ability of the vaccine that is shipped to us
from the Centers for Disease and Control
(CDC).

By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston traveled to LaBelle Friday night
and was in search of an important district
win and bringing home the Hendry County
championship. They accomplished both
but things got tight along the way, as the re-
surgent Cowboys would just not go quietly.
When the dust settled, the Tigers had a 40-
27 victory.
LaBelle took the opening kickoff and re-
turner Michael Pittman raced 39 yards to put
their offense in business at the Tiger 35. The
Tiger defense held them for two downs but
then was flagged for a 15-yard personal foul
infraction. Three snaps later quarterback
Jordan Phillips hit a wide-open Chris Garcia
with a 5-yard touchdown pass. The point
after kick by Garcia hit the right upright and
bounced back onto the playing area.
After that, the first half was pretty much
all about the Tigers. It only took 3 snaps
to cover 55 yards with tailback Chris Her-
ring scoring from 8 yards out. Fullback Fred
Washington had set up the score with a 44-
yard burst up the middle. Kicker Grant Pol-
hill nailed the extra point to give Clewiston a
7-6 advantage. The defense quickly forced a
LaBelle punt. From their 30, it only required
4 snaps before the Tigers were back in the
end zone. This time, Washington shook
lose up the middle and went 49 yards for the
score. Polhill converted to make it 14-6. The
defense again stopped the Cowboys and the
Tiger offense took possession at their own
45. Herring had runs of 13, 8 and 15 yards
that were sandwiched around 3 comple-
tions by quarterback Andres Rios. Herring
got the final 10 yards going off tackle and
Polhill converted to put Clewiston up 21-6.
The Cowboy offense took the following
kickoff but didn't hold onto the ball long.
On the first play, a Phillips pass was inter-
cepted by Tiger cornerback Ahmad Richards
at midfield. Seven plays later, Rios fired a
strike to wideout Damion Smith who made
a one-handed circus catch between two
defenders as he crossed the goal line. The
point after snap could not be handled and
the teams went to intermission with the Ti-
gers on top, 27-6.
The Tigers emerged for the second half in
a gleeful mood and perhaps a little over con-
fident. The Cowboys came out ready to play
football. The Cowboys recovered an onside
kick but went three and out and punted. The
Tigers, who had easily marched and scored


on their first 4 possessions of the contest,
suddenly found themselves facing a different
defense. Three plays went nowhere and the
teams exchanged two punts each after be-
ing held. The second Tiger punt was a short
one and gave the Cowboys the ball at the
Tiger 38. On the first snap, wingback Chris
Garcia took a handoff on a misdirection play
and galloped 38 yards. LaBelle went for
two and heavyweight tailback Andre Jones
punched it across to narrow the Tiger lead
to 27-14.
After holding the Tiger offense, the Cow-
boys began a late third quarter 60-yard drive
that required 8 plays. Garcia set up the score
on a trick play where he pulled up short of
the line of scrimmage and passed to flank-
er Pat Johnson for 19 yards to the Tiger 3.
Garcia hit the line for the final 3 yards and
then converted the point after to tighten the
noose, 27-21 with 10:40 left in the game.
The Tiger appeared to be in deep trouble
when Washington had the ball stripped on
the first play of the following series. As if
he had not already done enough damage
on the night, Chris Garcia recovered for the
Cowboys at the Tiger 32. However, Clewis-
ton got a break when Jones took a handoff
and went wide and was hit for a 5-yard loss
and fumbled the ball. Tiger sophomore
linebacker Edrick Crosby scooped it up and
went untouched for a 59-yard touchdown.
The Tigers went for two points but the pass
sailed high. The Tigers had padded their
lead at 33-21.
On the ensuing kickoff, the Tiger defense
got stingy and forced the Cowboys to try
a fourth and three run with Garcia being
stopped a yard short. The Tigers wasted no
time as freshman tailback Virthavious Rob-
inson raced off tackle and up field for a 50
yard score. Polhill added the extra point to
make it 40-21.
Each team then held the other with the
Cowboys being held on downs again and
the Tigers then punting giving LaBelle the
ball at their 17-yard line. On the fifth play
of the drive, Garcia broke free and trotted
67 yards to score with only 1:11 left in the
game. The extra point kick was off the mark
and the scoring finally ended.
LaBelle's Chris Garcia led all rushers on
the night with 134 yards on 8 carries with
three touchdowns rushing and another on
a reception. Virthavious Robinson led Tiger
runners with 115 yards on 11 rushes and a


50-yard touchdown. Fullback Fred Washing-
ton had 101 on 6 attempts including a 49-
yard burst for a score. Tailback Chris Her-
ring had 89 yards on 14 carries and scored
two touchdowns.
Defensively, linebackers Chauncey Thick-
lin and Brant Richardson led the Tigers with
seven solo tackles each. Thicklin had two
quarterback sacks and one rushing sack for
losses totaling 23 yards. Linebacker Dillon
Irey had five solo tackles, an assist and four
rushing sacks.
Tiger coach Joe Roth said, "We just gave
them too many opportunities to stay in the
game. We definitely must improve our sec-
ond-half play next week against Dunbar."
Adding, "But we won and kept ourselves
alive for the playoff picture."
The record for the Tigers now stands at
3-5 on the season and 3-1 in district play.
LaBelle dropped to 1-7 on the year and 1-3
in the district. Clewiston, Dunbar and Island
Coast are all knotted at 3-1 in district play
with Dunbar coming to Cane Field on Fri-
day night for the Tigers' homecoming game.
The Tigers must win the game in order to
claim the district title. Island Coast plays La-
Belle and is favored to win that game. If the
Tigers don't whip Dunbar, then Island Coast
would have to lose in order for the Tigers to
make the playoffs in the runner-up spot.

S.W. Florida counties launch new EDC partnership


Glades County, Fla. -Things just got a lit-
tle brighter in Southwest Florida. This month
marks the official launch of the area's new
economic development partnership, com-
prised of several Southwest Florida counties
working in unison to promote this promis-
ing region of the Sunshine State.
The newly formed Southwest Florida
Economic Development Partnership stretch-
es from Sarasota to Glades to Collier coun-
ties, all coming together to put the econom-
ic well-being of the Southwest Florida region
front and center. With nearly 70,000 square
miles of land and over 300 miles of coastline,
this partnership represents one of the state's
largest and most diverse economic regions.
According to Tracy Whirls, Board mem-
ber for the Partnership, "We are committed
to the continued expansion of our region's
infrastructure, resources, intellectual and
financial capital. While we are working to-
gether on many fronts, one of our major
focuses is the recruitment, retention and
creation of high-wage jobs in targeted high
technology industries and specialty manu-
facturing."
Indeed, the partnership has created a
powerful resource for businesses seeking
to expand or relocate to this up-and-coming

Democratic Party

to host Jefferson

Jackson Dinner
The Democratic Executive Committees
of Glades, Henry, Highlands and Okeecho-
bee have joined in a cooperative effort to
host the annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner. In
the past each County has hosted their own
dinner with the proceeds being used for
high school scholarships programs. Due to
the current economic environment, our or-
ganizations have significantly reduced their
scholarship dollars.
Rhett Bullard, Vice Chairman of the
Florida Democratic Party will be the keynote
speaker. Candidates that have confirmed
their attendance are Kendrick Meek and
Kevin Burns for US Senate, Cris Craft for US
Representative, Alex Sink, Farid Khavari and
Michael Arth for Governor, Dave Aronberg
and Dan Gelber for Attorney General, Randy
Hatch and Rick Minton for Commissioner of
Agriculture, and State Senator Pete Burkert
District 27.
The prime rib dinner will be held on
Friday November 13th at the Okeechobee
KOA beginning at 6:15PM with social time
and dinner being served at 7:15 p.m. Dinner
tickets are available at Porters Cleaners or by
calling Adean Miller at 863-467-1021.

region, a budding hotbed for industries such
as biotechnology, information technology,
and health, life and environmental sciences.
Within the past 10 years its infrastructure
has also seen significant growth, most nota-
bly with the establishment of renowned ac-
ademic institutions and the new Southwest
Florida International Airport, already ranked
among the 50 busiest airports in the U.S.
With a prominent marketing campaign
and new website (ABrighterPlace.com)
also launched this month, the partnership's
branding is built around a strong positioning
statement: Southwest Florida A Brighter
Place to Do Business.
"This is such a fitting way to position our
region in terms of both the quality of life in
Southwest Florida, and the area's strong in-
tellectual capital," said Tammie Nemecek,
Chairman of the Partnership. "That includes
an impressive group of former CEOs and
successful business owners who call South-
west Florida home, and part of our market-
ing strategy will be to tap-into this valuable
resource to explore further possibilities for
encouraging businesses to consider our re-
gion."
Along with Nemecek, officers of the
board for Southwest Florida Economic De-


velopment Partners include Kathy Baylis,
vice chairman; Don Root, treasurer; and
Jim Moore, board secretary. Key community
partners include Florida Gulf Coast Univer-
sity, Fifth Third Bank, Lykes Brothers and A.
Duda & Sons.
During the next two years, the partner-
ship has agreed to invest $500,000 toward
their marketing campaign with the aim of
bringing higher recognition and more high-
wage jobs to the region. For those interested

A Walk in the Past: The story behind Camp Izard


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
General Gaines, commander of the West
Florida military forces, embarked from New
Orleans and arrived at Ft. Brooke (Tampa
Bay area) on Feb. 8, 1836, with a force of
1,100 men. He rested the soldiers several
days and then set out for Fort King (Ocala
area) where he discovered the grisly re-
mains of Major Dade and his command (104
soldiers).
Gaines then continued to Fort King for
provisions and the prospect of joining forces
with General Winfield Scott, who was ru-
mored to be marching from the east. He
hoped the two combined forces could cre-
ate a pincer movement that would envelope
the Seminoles. When Gaines reached the
fort, he found that the soldiers posted there
had sufficient supplies only for themselves,
so due to low supplies, Gaines was forced to
march back to Fort Brooke.
On the return trip, Gaines decided to take
a different trail, which ran approximately
fifty miles west of the old trail. One reason
Gaines chose this new route was because
the Indian guides told him the trail would
junction with the Withlacoochie River at a
favorable crossing. On Feb. 27, 1836, Gaines'
army reached the river after marching for
two days, but there was no fordable river
crossing for his men, only hostile Seminoles,
who fired upon his army as they searched
for the crossing.
The Indian guides acted confused and
told General Gaines the fordable crossing
was three miles further up the river. The
next day the army marched to the new lo-
cation and received continuous fire from
the Seminoles, who were protected on the
opposite bank by the river's high sandy em-
bankments. Several men were wounded
while searching for the river crossing, and
one of the officers, Lieutenant James Izard,
received a fatal wound and died.
Finally, the Indian guides confessed they
were unfamiliar with the area and had no
clue where the soldiers could cross. Gaines
elected to move his army about a half mile
from the river into a pine barren, where he
hoped to draw the Seminoles. There the sol-
diers built a breastwork of logs for protec-
tion and waited. General Dade would later
name the primitive stockade "Camp Izard,"
in honor of Lieutenant James Izard.
Gaines sent riders to Fort Drane, recom-
mending General Clinch to act at once and
bring his forces to bear on the opposite
side of the river. His plan was to combine
his forces with General Clinch's and attack
the cunning foe from both sides of the river,
crushing them. However, the plan began to
backfire when many of the elusive Semi-
noles crossed the river and started employ-
ing guerilla tactics. Each day the Seminoles
caught some of the surrounding dry grasses
on fire, using the smoke from the burning
grasses as cover, so they could creep close
to the soldiers and fire.
General Gaines now found his army un-
der siege, and to make matters worse, the
soldier's rations were almost depleted. The
men's rations were reduced to one cup of
dried corn per day. Gaines also ordered sev-
eral horses shot daily to supplement the sol-
dier's meager corn rations.


No doubt these men reflected back on
the horrible carnage they had discovered at
the Dade Massacre site and pondered their
future
The besieged army was surprised on
March 5, 1836, by a Negro's voice sounding
from the adjacent woods. At the top of his
voice, the Negro told the soldiers that the
Indians were tired of fighting and wished
to come in and shake hands. The following
morning, several Seminole leaders emerged
from the surrounding woods at a distance
of four to five hundred yards. A gaudily-
dressed Seminole approached the Ameri-
can's spokesperson, a Louisiana volunteer
called Barrow. The Seminole was Osceola,
who informed the American that the Semi-
noles didn't wish to fight any longer and was
desirous that the soldiers withdraw from the
Withlacoochie.
The Seminoles desire for peace created a
political situation. Osceola and Gaines now
shared a common problem, neither had
the authorization to negotiate peace terms.
Gaines requested that the Seminoles retire
to the opposite side of the river and wait
peaceably until United States officials could
arrive and start negotiations. Osceola and
the other Seminole leaders agreed to retire

for the Seminole nation's .l
leader, Micanopy, to arrive
and negotiate peace terms
with the United States of-
ficials.
This peaceful transition
was abruptly interrupted .
when General Clinch's ad-
vance guard arrived on the -T
scene. Clinch saw some of
the Seminoles and immedi-
ately formed his army into
ranks and attacked, scat-
tering the Seminoles to the
four winds and cancelling General Gair
any hopes of a peaceful res-
olution with the Seminole
Nation.
Earlier, General Clinch had received Gen-
eral Gaines' request for help, but was re-
strained by General Winfield Scott to keep
his forces at Fort Drane. Clinch and his com-
mand, stationed at Fort Drane, heard canon
fire coming from the battle, and they feared
the worst. Finally, General Clinch could no
longer bear the thought of General Gaines'
besieged army at the mercy of the Semi-

noles. He disobeyed General Scott's orders
and sent a 500-man relief force to rescue
General Gaines' command.
General Gaines would later take Gen-
eral Scott to court and prove that Scott had
refused to aid a fellow officer. However,
General Scott was never prosecuted. Gen-
eral Gaines is known today in Florida for a
city named in his honor. The city is called
Gainesville, home of the "Florida Gators."

Wayward Whales
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It happened 24 years ago, but Sacramen-
to Bay Area residents still talk about when
Humphrey the Humpback whale touched
their lives on that 5th day of November in
1985.
The wayward whale swam into the Sac-
ramento River, attracting 10,000 people a
day as whale experts tried desperately to
turn it around.
Humphrey went back to sea after 25 days
of near-pandemonium and worldwide me-
dia attention.
Ever since that day, Humpback whales
have held a special place in the hearts of Bay
Area residents.
Over the years Bay Area volunteers have
come together a number of times to help
wayward whales.
One of the locals commented, "Hum-
phrey taught people how to work together."
In 2005, a 50-foot female humpback
whale was on the usual migratory route
along the California coast when it became
entangled in nylon ropes that link crab pots.
A crab fisherman spotted the whale and
radioed for help.
Within a few hours, a rescue team ar-
rived and determined that the only way to
save the whale was to dive in and untangle
her a very dangerous proposition, since
one slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.
The first diver in shared that his heart sank
when he saw all the lines wrapped around
the whale and really didn't think they were
going to be able to save it.
About 20 crab-pot ropes, each about 240
feet long with weights every 60 feet, along
with at least 12 crab traps weighing 90
pounds each were wrapped multiple times
around the tail and the back and left front
flippers, and there was a line in the whale's
mouth.
The combined weight was pulling the
whale downward, forcing it to struggle just
to keep its blow- hole out of the water.
Four divers worked over an hour with
curved knives and eventually freed her. The
whale floated passively the whole time.
The guy who cut the rope out of her
mouth said her eye was there "winking
at me, watching me the whole time." He
shared that it was an experience he would
never forget.
When the whale realized it was free, it
began swimming joyfully around in circles.
She then came back to one of the divers,
nuzzled him, and then swam to the next
diver and nuzzled him as well.
Each diver was nuzzled as if she was
thanking each one personally. They said it
was the most incredible experience of their
lives
May all of us know the joy of giving and
receiving gratitude, and may all of us be
blessed with a most incredible experience
in our lives.
May each of us also be so blessed with
people who will risk themselves to help us
get untangled from the things that are bind-
ing us, and may we be so willing to do the
same to help those who need us.


Farewell to Thanksgiving?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Thanksgiving is disappearing! I am going
to miss it.
All those happy experiences of Thanks-
giving past. Blessed days filled with the joy of
stopping everything else, just to be grateful
to God.
Sentimental remembrances of fam-
ily gatherings, of worship, of our prayers
around the feast table. It was all so-o good,
and good for us!
But each year Thanksgiving seems to
matter less and less. It simply has too much
going against it. Football dominates the fam-
ily room.
You can, of course, turn the set so your
family can gulp down the food and watch
the game at the same time. No conversation,
of course. Prayer during the commercial...
Maybe.
But Thanksgiving's a real misfortune in
that it is simply too close to Christmas. It's
no closer than it ever was.
But Christmas is growing. It used to be in
December. Now it's spread all the way back
to October.
A recent study of Dr. Ima Forecaster from
the Institute of Pagan Practices shows that
within the next decade Christmas trees with
a patriotic motif (a flag where the star used
to be, perhaps) will be used to celebrate the
4th of July.
And by the year 2020 the Easter Bunny
will arrive in a red, fur-lined coat, pulled by
eight tiny reindeer.
So what chance does Thanksgiving have?
After all, it was always a rather quiet, warm
time.
No expensive presents to buy. Other than
the food industry, nobody cashed in on it
very much.
So it figures that with an appeal only to
thankfulness to God and enjoying the love of
family, it doesn't stand a chance! If you can't
buy it or sell it, who needs it!
So farewell, dear Thanksgiving. You were
a wonderful warm day for us while you
lasted.
Too bad you didn't have something more
to offer us. No tinsel. No holiday decanters.
Just gratitude to God. And that's gone out of
style in our land. We're too busy "getting" to
thank the Giver.
But take heart! The festivity of Christmas
2009 is already turning up. I can hear it now.
"Angels we have heard on high, Telling us go
out and buy.."
We will miss you, Thanksgiving. More
than we in this land have ever begun to
imagine!

Were the pilots asleep? No,
they were just using their
computers!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My father was employed the second half
of his life for one of the major airlines. We
heard many of the stories about goings-on
that didn't make the headlines.


Air travel was (and is) a safe way of travel
but not without its human foibles. When
two pilots on a major carrier overflew the
Minneapolis airport recently, and were out
of contact with the control tower, I was
grateful for their safe arrival after the plane
got turned around.
Were the pilots asleep? No, they denied
being asleep. Was that possible? Probably,
with the status of automatic piloting and the
planes that almost "fly themselves" these
days. What then?
Finally, an answer was forthcoming. The
pilots were engrossed on their personal
computers! Rapt attention! A hypnotic state!
Being capable of tuning out the entire world
around them!
Detaching from their responsibilities and
obligations, losing a sense of time!
Lest we get too detached ourselves, there
is such a thing as "highway hypnosis", when
drivers stop paying attention due to the mo-
notony of a trip.
Cell phones are coming under scrutiny
more and more as something akin to what
the two pilots were experiencing; vehicles
that almost drive themselves and can put the
operator to sleep -at least partially.
When boredom sets in; humans seem
to have the capacity to seek something to
fill the void and the potential for tragedy is
greatly multiplied.
There is a priceless incident mentioned in
the Book of Acts about someone who was
apparently bored and fell asleep; Eutychus
(Acts 20: 8 ff.)
He had no computer to keep him from


boredom in those days, "Seated in a win-
dow was a young man called Eutychus, who
was sinking into a deep sleep as Paul talked
on and on.
When he was sound asleep, he fell to the
ground from the third story and was picked
up dead (Acts 20:9)."
The story for Eutychus has a happy end-
ing; Paul recognized that "He's alive!" and
they all returned upstairs once more to cel-
ebrate their breaking of bread.
Aside from being a caution to boring
preachers, the more serious lesson is to "Pay
attention to your surroundings and what
you're about!"
Getting distracted is tempting when peo-
ple feel bored; maybe there is something
that doesn't have your attention at the mo-
ment but may be life-saving, literally, if you
notice it.
Prioritizing where our attention should
be is the mark of many of our healers and
greatest helpers. First-aid teaches priorities
in what to do that is most important first,
airline pilots are taught to attend to the most
dangerous of the potential emergencies
when several problems seem to strike all at
once.
Emergency course work that I have tak-
en includes sections on preventing injuries
to the helper so that one can remain help-
ful and not be another part of the problem.
Feelings of boredom?
They're really a call to "Pay attention,
there's an accident waiting to happen, don't
be a part of it!"

The restoration of Lake Hicpochee, part
of Okeechobee Waterway, is being planned
at this time. It involves Glades and Hendry
Counties, water management, and is sup-

restoration would improve water quality,
increase water storage, increase waterfront

biologists delivered more than 75,000 finger-
ling bass to Lake Okeechobee.
The fry are produced at FBCC from fish
collected at the rim canal that encircles the
lake. The parent fish are genetically profiled
and their offspring can be identified after be-
ing released, according to FWC officials.
The FWC also intends to make local bod-
ies of water safer for boaters. Beginning
Jan. 1, all boaters who were born on or after
Jan. 1 of 1988 are required to take a boating
safety course and hold a FWC Boating Safety
Identification Card. Anyone born after Jan.

days to obtain this ID card. Also, FWC law
