Marina project begins


Inland river town
anticipates revival of
merchants and
service providers
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- This inland,
river town celebrated a ground
breaking, Jan. 22, for its marina
and boat ramp.
The waterfront and Moore
Haven Marina were greatly dam-
aged by Hurricane Wilma in


2005. The warped and splintered
dock off First Street was a dis-
couraging sight. A public-private
partnership contributed to the
research and planning needed to
redevelop this historic town on
the Okeechobee Waterway. Or-
ganization and funds came from
the Moore Haven City Council,
Glades County Economic Devel-
opment Council, Glades Electric
Cooperative, River Forest Yacht-
ing Center and others.
The hard work paid off and
Moore Haven received $397,000
from FWC's Florida Boating
Improvement Program (FBIP)
2008-2009. The FBIP provides


funds with competitive grants for
boating access on ocean fronts
and interior waterfronts in the
state. Projects can include con-
struction and maintenance of
public docks, and boat ramps;
and economic developments that
promote boating and rejuvenate
working waterfronts.
The marina project funds pro-
vide for the removal of damaged
docks with a replacement of 450
feet of floating docks. Included are
repair of the boat ramp, dredging,
a courtesy dock, channel marker,
rest rooms and the installation of

Seminole

cattlemen
Willie Johns of
Brighton visits
Clewiston Museum
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES/HENDRY -- Willie
Johns, Brighton Seminole, was a
guest speaker at the Clewiston Mu-
seum, Jan. 21. He describes him-
self as a cattleman and a historian.
When he was a young man he
was completely focused on rodeo
sports until age 28.
"That's all I wanted to do," he
said.
However, his college days at the
University of Miami caused him to
realize he did not know as much
Seminole culture and history as he
wished. He recalled many of his col-
lege assignments required reports,
and he usually chose his people as
the topic. Since he wanted to find
more about himself through his
tribe's history, he began to ques-
tion and listen to the Elders.
Since Seminole family life is ex-
tended to the clan, it enabled him
to have a large family with many
cousins who were just like sisters
and brothers; and since the tribe
is a matrilinear society, his eight
aunts were able to tell him many
things. He mentioned that acquir-
ing this long tribal history was like
getting it "poured into him" by way
of Elders' accounts of history.
Willie Johns also read history
books and eye-witness reports of

Hendry/Glades County hiking group forming


Here's your opportunity to explore beau-
tiful landscapes of Florida and meet fellow
nature lovers. The formation of a Florida
Trails Association (FTA) inland sub-chapter
is in its early stages and we want you to join
us. An orientation meeting is being held Sat-
urday, February 6 in Moore Haven.
A rewarding experience is being planned
to introduce prospective members to the
advantages of joining FTA. You will dis-
cover how a great statewide organization
will enhance our wilderness experiences
in Hendry and Glades counties. Hiking the
Okaloachoochee Slough is one of the lush
wilderness areas in Hendry County we plan
to explore.
Our new sub-chapter will primarily focus
on group hiking and maintaining walking,


biking and canoeing trails in the Fisheating
Creek Wildlife Management Area.

Meet up time and place
The orientation begins at 10 a.m. with
FTA members guiding a casual hike on the
Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail, a segment of
the Florida National Scenic Trail. We meet up
at the Alvin Ward Memorial Park on the east
side of the Caloosahatchee. The hike will be
about an hour, more or less. Everyone walks
or cycles at their own pace and swap sto-
ries with people of all ages who share your
enthusiasm to walk, hike, bicycle, canoe or
kayak in the great outdoors.
Following this "social" walk, we will gath-
er at the Glades County Historical Society's
Westergaard House located at 270 Avenue L


for a brief meeting to begin about 11:30 a.m.
FTA members will explain the goals and pur-
poses of FTA. To learn more about FTA, visit
its website at www.floridatrail.org.
No lunch is being served but we do plan
to eat so please bring a sack lunch of your
own, or stop and pick up a lunch from a lo-
cal restaurant. Ice tea, water and coffee will
be available at the Westergaard House.

event, contact Margaret England 863-674-

Glades County Woman's Club donates to Haiti


The Glades County Woman's Club began
their 2010 season at their first meeting Jan.
14 by making a cash donation to the Haitian
people. With the help of Diane Tillery of the
First Baptist Church in Moore Haven, the
gift was sent via a friend's Baptist church in
Belle Glade.
The members' work continued as offi-
cers and standing committees all reported
on future events and current scholarship
fundraisers with great enthusiasm. The
group's largest fundraiser, an annual Style
Show, will take place on Saturday, Feb. 20
at the former Robin's Nest RV Resort, now
known as the MRV Resort. Located approxi-
mately six miles north of Moore Haven, this
attractive, well maintained park has a spa-
cious clubhouse and dozens of fun, energet-


ic snowbirds who provide support for this
annual event! Clothing and jewelry proved
by Denise's Fashions, is always trendy and
affordable. Guests receive a 10% discount on
each purchase. Club members and friends
behave like professional models and provide
great entertainment as they stroll down the
"runway" sporting outfits from cruise wear,
Sunday school clothing and comfortable
sports combinations. Tickets that include a
delicious luncheon of homecooked foods
and refreshments, door prizes and entry fee
can be purchased from any GCWC member.
All are welcomed for a reasonable cost of
$10 each.
A report from Bobbi Brown on the Christ-
mas On the Caloosahatchee food booth,
their final fundraiser of 2009, proved that


barbecue sandwiches are always in de-
mand. Club members and on-scene volun-
teers helped erect and set up the booth that
served the luscious sandwiches at this chil-
dren's event. That southern favorite, sweet
tea, was especially popular.
Managed by Candi Snow, Kacey Swaf-
ford, Bobbi Brown, Margaret Brown and oth-
ers provided additional funding for the two
annual scholarships given to Moore Haven
high school graduates each year. The club's
Membership Tea Committee headed by Pat
Ringstaff, will host the annual tea soiree at
Mrs. Ringstaff's home on Saturday, Jan. 30.
Members host guests who are interested in
joining the GCWC. For further information
please call Anne Coffey at 863-946-0520.

Haiti on January 12.


Belle Glade Lakeside Medical Center
surgeon Daniel B. Kairys, MD was among
the first wave of medical responders after
the devastating earthquake in Haiti on Janu-
ary 12.
Just days after the quake, he and his Hai-
tian-born wife, Junia, a physician s assistant,
made their way to the capital city of Port-au-
Prince as part of Project Medishare for Haiti,
a non-profit medical relief organization, to
provide medical care to those injured in the
disaster. After three days of caring for victims
of this hard-hit community, he came away
moved by their gratitude in the midst of such
pain and devastation.
"The quietness of their suffering is hard
to describe," Dr. Kairys said. "They were
thankful for the small amount we were do-
ing, and they had the willingness to sit and
wait until we could get to them. There was
very little complaining."
Dr. Kairys estimates he and the Project
Medishare team treated approximately 200
patients during his time in Haiti, providing
care in an environment lacking key medical
facilities, such as operating rooms.
Many patients needed immediate surgery,
but without proper surgical tools and equip-
ment, there was no way for the surgeon to
do his work.
For Dr. Kairys, a father of three, there was
an emotional impact caring for the children
who found their way to the facility, some
with severe injuries such as open fractures
and large tissue loss.
Many had lost both of their parents in the
earthquake.
"We really didn't treat patients. That was
the problem. We mostly provided comfort
care to those that came to our facility. That's
all we could do," he said.
This kind of medical inequality is what
drove Dr. Kairys to surgery as a specialty.
While in medical school, he traveled to
Haiti through Project Medishare and saw


early on that many people, especially those
in the rural areas of the small island nation,
were dying simply because they didn't have
access to routine life-saving surgical proce-
dures.
If he became a surgeon, he reasoned,
he could do all of it treat and operate. Dr.
Kairys would like to return to Haiti soon,
this time working in the rural communities
where there was limited medical care even
before the earthquake.
This recent experience has reinforced his
desire to continue to work with the Haitian
community right here at home.
Lakeside Medical Center, Palm Beach
County's only public hospital, provides an
opportunity for Dr. Kairys to care for an un-
derserved medical community.
Since leaving private practice and joining
the medical team at Lakeside Medical Cen-
ter in 2007, he has been providing surgical
care to a rural population that struggles with
key medical issues.
Having a new, technologically-advanced
facility allows him to work more efficiently.
"Lakeside Medical Center makes my job
a lot easier because people with acute prob-
lems can be treated quickly," he said. "While
the community does need better preventive
care, the hospital is able to provide very good
care for a wide range of health issues."
Lakeside Medical Center, which serves
residents in rural western Palm Beach Coun-
ty and surrounding regions, is supportive of
the work Dr. Kairys does both at home and
in the now-devastated homeland of so many
in their area.
"We are fortunate to have Dr. Kairys as
part of our medical staff," said Brian P. Gib-
bons, Jr., Hospital Administrator. "His strong
surgical skills and the fact that he speaks
Creole, along with his dedication to serve all
the residents in this community, make him
an invaluable asset to our growing medical
team."

FWC records unprecedented manatee deaths


The cold period that began Jan. 2 and
lasted nearly two weeks continues to impact
Florida manatees. Biologists with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research In-
stitute documented more than 100 manatee
carcasses in state waters from the beginning
of the year through Jan. 23.
Biologists report that the preliminary
cause of death for 77 of these animals is
cold stress. Although pending final review,
the number of cold-stress deaths exceeds
the previous record of 56 for that category in
a single year, which was set in 2009.
In addition, researchers note exposure to
cold this year likely contributed to the deaths
of several newborn manatees, classified as
"perinatal." Researchers continue to recover
and examine carcasses, so the total is ex-
pected to rise; however, the rate should slow
down as water temperatures warm.


The recent cold snap exposed manatees
in Florida to cold water temperatures. Expo-
sure to low temperatures over a period of
time can cause a condition called manatee
cold-stress syndrome, which can result in
death.
Since receiving the initial reports of cold
stress-related manatee deaths on Jan. 7,
FWC biologists have been working closely
with FWC law enforcement and partner
agencies, including the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service, to respond to the high number
of manatee deaths. FWC staff members and
conservation partners are working extended
hours to recover and transport carcasses to
the FWC's Marine Mammal Pathobiology
Laboratory in St. Petersburg. There, biolo-
gists perform necropsies, or animal autop-
sies, on each manatee to determine the
cause of death and gather additional data.
Some carcasses that cannot be transported


are examined in the field.
Since the cold weather conditions be-
gan to affect Florida, FWC researchers have
worked diligently to rescue several mana-
tees and continue to respond to reports of
distressed manatees.
"We are deeply concerned about these
impacts on manatees and other fish and
wildlife," said FWC Chairman Rodney Bar-
reto. "We appreciate all the time and effort
being put into the process of documenting
the effects of this unprecedented event and
ask the public to assist in the effort by re-
porting dead or distressed manatees to the
FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC
(3922)."

tee conservation, visit MyFWC.conm/Mana-
tee. For more information on manatee mor-
tality research, visit http://research.MyFWC.
com/manatees.


rnoio/myTwc.com
FWC officials blame the recent cold
snap for the death of at least 77 mana-
tees. Here, they gather in canals near
power plants to stave off the cold.

U.S. Sugar officials are reporting damages to this year's sugarcane crop follow-
ing a sharp winter freeze in January.


Less Impact Seen On Citrus

CLEWISTON January 22, 2010 -U.S.
Sugar Corporation announced today that
half of its sugarcane crop remaining to be
harvested was badly damaged by the un-
precedented span of below freezing temper-
atures experienced earlier this month.
The company had harvested just over 50
percent of its cane prior to the freeze.
"While we dodged a bullet on January
6, we took a major hit the next week," said
Judy Sanchez, director of corporate commu-
nications. "At this time, we are concentrat-
ing on harvesting and processing the most
badly damaged cane from our independent
growers to the west, trying to minimize their
damage."
Sanchez said the company estimates it
will take four to six weeks to harvest and
process the most severely damaged cane
and also expects to see continued degrada-
tion in its moderately damaged fields, par-
ticularly as temperatures continue to rise.
Freeze damage in mature cane can result
in increased harvesting and processing costs
as well as decreased sugar yields in field and
factory.
Southern Gardens Citrus saw damage
only in its most northern citrus grove and the
impacted fruit has already been harvested.
Its processing plant has also seen vary-
ing levels of fruit quality from independent
growers who also incurred freeze damage.
Full weather impacts on the fruit currently
being harvested will more telling in the next
week or two.
Temperatures in the low 20s were re-
corded for multiple hours across the fields
during the January 10-11, 2010 freeze event,
with a low of 20 degrees in Western Hendry
County.


The coldest temperatures were seen in
the extreme west, east and southern por-
tions of the property, with the western fields
most severely impacted by the weather.
The threshold for damage in both sugar
and citrus is generally 28 degrees for four
hours.
U.S. Sugar Corporation has 150,000 acres
of sugarcane land and 21,000 acres of active
citrus groves.

A Walk in the Past: Twice dead in the Everglades


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
On December 26, 1837, Colonel Taylor
started making preparations for his trip back
to Fort Bassinger.
His army spent the day moving the
wounded across a small footbridge that he
had ordered constructed across the deadly
slough, where many had died from hot,
Seminole lead.
The wounded were then treated and
prepared for the long painful trip to Fort
Bassinger.
The bodies of those killed in the Battle of
Okeechobee were collected and placed in
two separate graves.
One mass grave was designated for the
dead officers, while the other mass grave
was for the dead enlisted men.
After the bodies were interned, the sol-
diers built large bonfires over the two grave
sites, in hopes of hiding the buried men from
the lurking Seminoles.
The purpose for hiding the bodies went
beyond the concerns that Seminoles might
loot the graves for plunder.
The sites were camouflaged because the
Seminole culture, like that of many other Na-
tive American cultures, sometimes entailed
mutilating the bodies of their slain enemies.
Many Native Americans believed that if
they mutilated an enemy, he would enter
the next spiritual world crippled and could
do no harm to the person that had killed him
in this world.
Regardless of the cultural or religious rea-
sons, the process was gruesome.
Noses, ears, fingers, toes and other body
parts were removed and the abdomen
opened in this bloody custom.
It wasn't a pretty sight and had a special
way of sobering up young, adventurous re-
cruits that had enlisted for the thrill of fight-
ing Seminoles.
Needless to say, soldiers who viewed the
remains of their fallen comrades were dumb
struck with horror.
The Native Americans knew this, so they
also used the mutilated body as a psycho-
logical ploy, instilling fear and dread among
the soldiers, who experienced first hand, the
grim reaper's hands at work.
I am reminded of the Wild West and the
famous general, George Armstrong Custer,
who wrote a book, entitled "My life on the
Plains," before his death at Little Big Horn.
In the book he describes the valor of the
Native Americans and their mastery horse-
manship as well as his personal experiences
on the frontier plains.
One experience was the gloomy discov-
ery of fellow Calvary soldiers that had been
killed and mutilated by the Sioux.
It was a scene that would remain fresh in
the minds of Custer and his men of the 7th
Calvary.
No doubt Custer and his command re-


"Noses, ears, fingers, toes and other body parts were removed and
the abdomen opened in this bloody custom. It wasn't a pretty sight
and had a special way of sobering up young, adventurous recruits
that had enlisted for the thrill of fighting Seminoles."
Butch Wilson


flected back on that horrible scene as they
fought for their lives in the brief, but fierce
battle at the Little Big Horn.
The mutilated corpses of Custer and 266
soldiers would later be found strewn across
the battle ground of the Little Big Horn.
I have read numerous documents written
by soldiers that fought under different com-
mands in the Second and Third Seminole In-
dian Wars that tell about soldiers' attempts
to hide the bodies of their fallen comrades
from the Seminoles.
Sometimes a buried comrade was put to
rest and left undisturbed, but all fallen com-
rades were not so fortunate.
This was the case with the bodies buried
at the Battle of Okeechobee.
A regiment passing through the area sev-
eral weeks later found the unearthed muti-
lated bodies and reburied them.
I read one soldier's journal, which de-
scribed an ingenious, but desperate measure
that a group of soldiers was forced to em-
ploy in an attempt to keep the slain bodies of
their comrades from being desecrated.
A company of soldiers had marched from
a fort on the Caloosahatchee River, south to
the Big Cypress swamp.
The march began in water that was up
to their ankles, but by the time the company
of soldiers reached the Big Cypress swamp,
the men were wading in water up to their
waists.
The wet and tired soldiers moved through
Big Cypress swamp and discovered a large
hammock that was high and dry.
Delaware Indians, who were acting as
guides for the soldiers, alerted the command
that they had discovered fresh signs on the
hammock, indicating the Seminoles were
sharing the same piece of firma terra.
The Delaware Indians expected an am-
bush, so they declined to take the lead. Ten
soldiers were assigned as scouts and sent
to scout ahead of the main company of sol-
diers.
The scouting party soon walked into a
deadly Seminole ambush.
Three of the ten soldiers were struck
down before the Seminoles vanished into
the dark, forbidden swamps.
The three dead soldiers couldn't be
hauled back to the fort due to the distance
and the warm tropical climate that would
soon cause the bodies to start decompos-
ing.
No doubt, these three slain men had cre-
ated a friendship and bond with other men

in the company as they shared the many
hardships associated with the South Florida
swamps and Everglades.
It was loyalty to these fallen men that
prompted the soldiers to bury them where
the Seminoles couldn't find the grave.
The company of soldiers knew if they
buried their comrades on the high ham-
mock that the bodies would be dug up and
mutilated, so they chose their only other re-
course.
The men cut large limbs and made
stakes, which they drove deep into the
murky, swamp water's mud bottom.
The three slain soldiers were then se-
cured by rawhide to the submerged stakes


with hopes that their watery grave would be
hidden from the eyes of the sly Seminoles.
This article is not written to be offensive,
but to historically reflect the thoughts of sol-
diers that recorded their deeds and experi-
ences in a war that was unjust for the Semi-
noles, fought over 150 years ago in the wilds
of the Everglades.
I hope you have enjoyed this story.

Wisdom Comes With Age
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I woke up this morning one year older. All my life
I've been taught to respect my elders.
Now I am one. I'm reminded of what one friend
shared with me, "You know you are getting older
when you try to straighten out the wrinkles in your
socks only to find you aren't wearing any."
Growing older. Aging. We can laugh about it,
make jokes about it, and groan about it, but we can't
stop it. So, what do we do with .,ii.1i, 'As much
as we might like to avoid them, we can't.
So why not celebrate them? Birthdays are good
for us. The more we have, the longer we live.
According to the Scriptures, "advanced years
should teach wisdom," so here is some of mine.
Pocket the ones you find of value. Toss those you
don't. A positive mind set can make your day. It's
better to set your mind so that when you wake up
you can say, "Good morning, Lord," and not "Good
Lord, it's morning."
Words can hurt people more than sticks and
stones. Always keep your words soft and sweet, just
in case you have to eat them. But when you forget,
never put both feet in your mouth at the same time,
because then you won't have a leg to stand on.
There would be fewer problems with children if
they had to chop wood to keep the television set go-
ing. Teenagers will do dumb things. Whoever came
up with the phrase to "sleep like a baby" probably
didn't have one.
Drive carefully. It's not only cars that can be re-
called by their maker.
More often than not, it's the second mouse that


gets the cheese. The easy way is not always the best
way, and often the harder it is to do something, the
stronger it makes me.
A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the
scenery on a detour. To say no to someone is not
wrong. We could learn a lot from crayons some
are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, and some
have weird names, but they all have to live in the
same box. There is truth and value to what Robert
Fulghum shared in "All I Really Need To Know I
Learned In Kindergarten."
Think what a better world it would be if the whole
world had cookies and milk about three o'clock ev-
ery afternoon and then lay down with our blankies
for a nap. Or if all governments and people had a
basic policy to always put things back where they
found them and to clean up their own messes.
And it is still true, no matter how many birthdays
we've had; when we go out into the world it's best
to hold hands and stick together. Life is not fair, but
God is good. Together, we can all make it through
together with this truth.

When to "Halt" making a
decision: Pressures and
temptations
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When not to make a decision?
I've learned that being pressured to make deci-
sions is not always the best way to come up with an
answer. Once, a salesman told me "This deal won't
last!" when I was thinking about buying a house.


Well, it did last and I made a better offer; willing
to wait and willing to take the risk instead of being
pressured. I like to sleep on major decisions and not
rush into things; we all do better when we have a
chance to reflect, consider, let things mull over for
awhile. The Lord finds himself in the wilderness after
His baptism; he is confronted by the devil who tempts
him. "You're hungry; make the stones bread!"
"No," is Jesus' reply, "We don't live by bread
alone!" When tempted to throw Himself down from
the temple, because "He will give His angels charge
over thee (You won't be hurt, Jesus!), the answer is
"Don't tempt God" and when called to take a short-
cut to get the whole world He came to save if He
will only bow down to Satan- the answer is "Wor-
ship the Lord your God and serve Him only"
(Luke 4: ff, Matthew 4:1ff). One version (Luke)
notes that the devil had left Jesus "...until an oppor-
tune time.( ch. 4, v. 13)."
Sometimes when we think things have been put
to rest once and for all, the devil is still around; lurk
ing and waiting for a complacent, weak moment to
try again. I had a rather hectic day awhile back and
came home ready to collapse. The message that
greeted me was "Not so fast, we have had another
crisis..." The worst times to make decisions or face
choices is when we're hungry, angry, lonely or tired
("HALT"!). There are times when I can reflect, recu-
perate and face things with a better mindset; but not
always. Nevertheless, I make my best choices when
I've had a chance to reflect and don't just jump into
things; if only taking a few seconds to think about
what I need to do.
"Think before you act" has served me well.
I reflected for a few seconds on the crisis I was
about to face; and then moved. Looking back, I did


all right that evening.
The pressure and crisis of the moment deserved
my best: I couldn't give it if I ran off in all directions
at once and acted without thinking first.
I can envision the Lord in that wilderness being
hungry, lonely and tired. The devil would look for a
weak moment to tempt Him; but he was wrong.
The Lord certainly was up to the task; and gives
us strength to be up to the task when it comes our
way, too. In the meantime, I try to work to have the
resources when the crises and temptations come;
"HALTing" when making decisions or facing crises
and always asking God to be a part of them.

Narrow Mindedness
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The preacher is sometimes accused d i,.. h,. nar-
row-minded because he insists upon the Christian
forsaking all to follow Christ.
But all of life is narrow, and success is to be found
only by passing through the narrow gate and down
the strait way. There is no room for broad-minded-
ness in the chemical laboratory. Water is composed
of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen. The
slightest deviation from the formula is forbidden.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in mu-
sic. There can be but eight steps in the active. The
skilled director will not permit his first violin to play
so much as one half a stop off the written note, cord
and key.
There is no room for broad mindedness in the
mathematics classroom. Neither geometry, calculus,

ence for young people to view the monu-
ments and buildings that were inspired by
the founding fathers.
Traveling to Washington D.C. is expen-
sive during this economic downturn; and
parents, teachers and safety patrol students
have worked very hard to raise funds.
Each year sixth graders are chosen for
safety patrol based on their grades which
reflect As and B's. They must not have dis-
cipline referrals in the previous fifth grade
year. Fifteen students qualified for this year's
patrol.
They perform daily jobs such as raising
and lowering the American flag, and guiding
students and visitors along the sidewalks.
They help staff with chores in the front of-
fice, school store, media center, and cafete-
ria. These chores rotate every two weeks at
MHES.
Throughout the year, parents and stu-
dents are constantly working as individuals
or as groups in their efforts to raise funds
for the trip to the Capitol. Groups have sold
t-shirts, raffle tickets, worked Santa's work-
shop and organized yard sales. Parents and
teachers were up early last Saturday setting
up a yard sale at the U-Save grocery store
parking lot.


School sponsors have planned the an-
nual trip near the end of the year in April.
All safety patrol students who have worked
hard, kept academic grades at the A and B
level, and have not had discipline problems
will be able to join in the field trip to Wash-
ington D.C. The students and chaperones
will spend five days on tour. It is a once in a
lifetime opportunity for local kids.
This year's 15 safety patrol students are
Chloe Ahern, Ani Drayton, Brittany Dray-
ton, Victoria Cisneros, Jacob Heflin, Monica
Leavy, Kala McIntosh, Cheyenne Naile, Kate
Perry, Ricardo Pardo, Ceasar Salgado, Dalton
Tevlin, TeVon Thompson, Melissa Velasquez
and Megan Whitehead.
As expected, this trip will cost a lot of
money. It will cost over $1,300 per student.
Members must raise over $19,000 for the en-
tire safety patrol.
According to safety patrol sponsors, Kell
Ahern and Laura Perry, any contribution
would be greatly appreciated. Even a small
donation is not really too small. Keep these
young adults in mind, and remember what it
was like when you were their age.
If possible, send a check payable to Moore
Haven Elementary School. Mail to Safety Pa-
trol, c/o MHES, P.O. Box 160, Moore Haven,
FL 33471. Remember to include your name,
address and phone number. The school can
be contacted at 863-946-0737.

Islands of Atlantic Ridge are cold mountains


Doris Greene, library guest
speaker, takes audience on
a photo tour

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- Doris Greene took
the library audience on a tour of the Islands
of the Atlantic Ridge during a 'Food For
Thought' program, Jan. 22.
The library group never left their seats;
but by viewing Ms. Greene's photos, they
could feel the strong arctic breezes, and the
white caps and swells as their zodiac tour
boats got near the volcanic island rocks of
the shoreline.
Doris Greene and her husband took a
National Geographic tour on the ship, En-
deavor, with Lindblad Expeditions in March
and April 2008. They flew to the southern tip
of Chile and boarded the Endeavor near the
islands of the Antarctic.
The Islands of the Atlantic Ridge are real-
ly part of the longest mountain range in the
world where most of it is under the ocean.


INI/Nena Bolan
Doris Greene took library patrons on
a photo tour of Islands of the Atlantic
Ridge, Jan. 22. This is part of the Food
for Thought program at the Glades
County public library.


Some of the volcanic islands rise above the
water line and stretch 7,000 miles from the
southern most West Point Island to the Ca-
nary Islands.
West Point in the Faulkland Islands was
the first stop and it has only one family that
lives there. Ms. Greene was able to practice
her photography skills on the black-browed
albatross, and flightless megallanic pen-
guins.
The next destination was South Geor-
gia where she was able to get great close-
up photos of king penguins because they
seemed fearless of human beings. Howev-
er, the National Geographic guides remind-
ed the tourists that the birds are not to be
touched or fed. They saw lovely juvenile fur
seals that weighed maybe 20 pounds and
were not old enough to be aggressive.
While at Grytviken in South Georgia, Do-
ris Greene was able to visit the grave site of
Ernest Shackleton, the most famous Antarc-
tic explorer. His expeditions are told in his
book "Endurance" which was the name of
his ship.
He was Knighted for his efforts to reach
the South Pole. Shackleton's wife asked that
he should be buried there, and since then


many seafarers have made the trip to hon-
or the great man's seamanship with a little
trace of liquor poured upon the grave site.
Near Drygalski they saw iceburgs that
may have been as long as several football
fields. They went to Tristan da Cunha which
had an active volcano in the 1960's. Near St.
Helena they saw the garrison island home of
Napoleon Bonaparte, the French dictator in
exile. Bonaparte had been an excellent gar-
dener and Mrs. Greene took photos of his
favorite plants and his former grave site.
The Endeavor traveled north to Ascension
Island, then past the equator and on to Cape
Verde and the Canary Islands. Along the
7,000 mile route she was able to photograph
sei whales, orca, rockhopper penguins, rein-
deer, elephant seals, derelict whaling ships,
iceburgs, villagers and tracks of green turtles
on the sand.
Doris Greene is a former social worker
and master gardener. She and her husband,
Jim, have done extensive traveling on their
sailboat. She would like to return to the
public library with more slide show travel-
ogues.

nor trigonometry allows any variations from exact
accuracy, even for old time's sake. The solution of
the problem is either right or wrong no tolerance
there. There is no room for broad-mindedness in
biology. One varying result out of a thousand experi-
ments will invalidate an entire theory.
There is no room for broad-mindedness in the
athletic field. The game is played according to the
rules with no favors shown for charity's sake.
There is no room for broad mindedness in the
garage. The mechanic there says that the piston rings
must fit the cylinder walls within one thousandth
part of an inch. Even between friends there cannot
be any variation if the motor is to run smoothly.
How then, shall we accept that broad-minded-
ness shall rule in the realm of religion and morals.


Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life
and no man cometh unto the Father but by Me."
(John 14:6) That statement is narrow and allows for
no variation. Jesus said, "Go into all the world and
preach the Gospel to every creature, he that believeth
and is baptized shall be saved." (Mark 16:15 16).
That narrows down those that will be saved. Je
sus said, "Be thou faithful until death and I will give
thee the crown of life." (Rev. 2:10).
That narrows down those who will inherit eter
nal life. Other narrow statements are: "Forsake not
the assembly" (Heb. 10:25) "Upon the first day of the
week let everyone of you lay by him in store as the
Lord has prospered him." (I Cor. 16:2).
"Bear fruit or I will cut you off" (John 15), "Study
to show thyself approved unto God" (11 Tim. 2:15)
We have no right to change what the Bible says
about salvation or how to live the Christian life.
In fact we are warned that if we do we will miss
Heaven. (Revelation 22:18 19).

great battles. He told the audience about old
journals written by soldiers that have been
found in the New England states. These
journals retell the stories of the three Semi-
nole Wars fought in the early 1800's. Mr.
Johns commented that parents in the north-
ern states were tired of sending their sons to
faraway wars that did not seem to end. They
did not end because the "pesky" Seminole
remained unconquered.
Willie Johns branch of the Seminole Tribe
are called Creeks but that is not an entirely
correct term. Really, they are the Muscogee,
which is a Pawnee word for 'people who live
in marshes'. A long time ago a British agent
did business with the Muscogee, and he
found that they had traveled down or across
10 creeks to reach the agent. Eventually they
were known as the Creeks. In the early days,
the Spanish called the tribe 'Cimarron', but
Englishmen pronounced it 'Seminole'.
Recently, Mr. Johns was a guest speaker
in St. Augustine. According to the Seminole
historian, it is interesting to note that the
Spanish founded St. Augustine two genera-
tions before the British settled Jamestown.
Early American History begins in Florida
with the Spanish explorers, and Mr. Johns
remarked that the positive thing about it was
the introduction of cattle and horses. Semi-
noles rode horses and hunted cows long be-
fore the cowboys of the western states.
The Spanish settlement caused the de-
mise of about 100,000 early Native Ameri-
cans like Timucuan and Caloosa. This left
Florida a vacant expanse for cattle and hors-
es to multiply. The Muscogee of Alabama,
Georgia, Tennessee, and the Carolinas mi-
grated yearly to Florida as a winter refuge;

Willie Johns, right, was a guest speaker at the Clewiston Museum, Jan. 21. Mr.
Johns described the early Native American cowhunters, and today's cattle in-
dustry on the Seminole Brighton Reservation.


which means according to Willie Johns, the
Muscogee were the first Snowbirds.
Mr. Johns recalled that Seminoles were
part of the Cow Cavalry during the Civil War.
Indian cowhunters would round up cattle in
the Immokalee area and drive them to Kis-
simmee and Jacksonville where they later
fed the Confederate armies of Lee, Beaure-
gard and Grant.
Willie Johns described the beginning of
the cattle industry at the Brighton Reserva-
tion on the west side of Lake Okeechobee.
Back in the 1930's, during the Great De-
pression the farm land out west and in the
mid-west had turned into a dust bowl. The
government bought 700 head of cattle from
Apaches in Arizona, and hauled the starv-
ing cattle to Cornwell near Lake Istokpoga,
which is not far from Brighton.
About 200 cattle had survived the trip


and they were in bad shape, but Seminole
ranchers nursed them and eventually they
became the nucleus of today's cattle herd
in Brighton. Seminole Tribe cattle industry is
third in the state with about 18,000 animals.
Willie Johns encouraged the audience to
visit the new Veterans Building in Brighton
which is shaped like a five point star. Each
point represents a part of the Armed Ser-
vices like Navy, Marine, Army, Air Force and
Coast Guard. He commented it is very much
like a museum of American warriors, includ-
ing Native American heroes of the Seminole
Wars.
The Seminole Brighton Reservation is lo-
cated in Glades County near Lake Okeecho-
bee off SR 78 east. Visit Brighton on Feb. 18-
21 for the Brighton Field Days and Rodeo.

Moore Heaven Masons install new leader for 2010

Moore Heaven Lodge No. 61 Free and Ac-
cepted Masons installed a new "Worshipful
Master" on Jan. 7 and made a little local his-
tory when they did it.
The Worshipful Master is the man who
runs the Masonic Lodge for his year and for
2010, that man is Jeff Zarrella. And what
makes it very special is that Jeff Zarrella is
retired Sheriff Jim Rider's grandson.
Jim passed away in 2005, but those who
were living in Glades County and through-
out Florida for that matter know that name
well.
A highly regarded law enforcement pro-
fessional, community leader and very active
Freemason, Jim was himself a Past Worship-
ful Master of Moore Heaven Masonic Lodge.
And so it was with a great deal of pride, a
little bit of nostalgia and a lot of enthusiasm
from Masons throughout South and South-
west Florida that his grandson Jeff was in- Submitted photo

Marina
Continued From Page 1
a sea wall.
The cooperation between the City of
Moore Haven and River Forest Yachting
Center has resulted in plans for the marina
to become a redevelopment tool for the his-
toric downtown area; and a storm haven for
boat travelers who use the Okeechobee Wa-
terway as a convenient route that bypasses
Key West. Many cruisers enter the inland
Okeechobee Waterway through the Inter-
coastal Waterway at Stuart on Florida's east
coast, and travel 152 miles to Fort Myers on
the Gulf coast.
According to the FWC, approximately
9,000 recreational vessels year pass through


the navigation lock in Moore Haven, which
is located midway between Stuart and Fort
Myers on the west shore of Lake Okeecho-
bee. The pleasure boaters are looking for a
convenient place to stop and purchase sup-
plies or spend the night. Other revitalization
proposals for Moore Haven and its marina
include restaurants, lodging and shopping.
Merchants and service providers can look
forward to supplying the needs of transient
boaters.
"It is going to be a good project that will
help business," said Bret Whidden, Moore
Haven mayor.
Lake Okeechobee is the second largest
fresh water lake in the United States. Moore
Haven is located at a navigation lock that
connects the 730 square mile lake to the Ca-
loosahatchee River, which is the west leg
of the Okeechobee Waterway. Anglers are


attracted to the big lake and Glades County
waterways which are home to largemouth
bass, bluegill, shellcrackers, crappie, cat-
fish and snook.
Pleasure boaters will also find that
Moore Haven is the trailhead for the Lake
Okeechobee Scenic Trail where hikers, bike
riders and photographers observe wildlife
and a landscape that is unique to Glades
County. Along the west leg of the Okeecho-
bee Waterway, large yachts will find the
new River Forest Yachting Center in Ortona,
which is located off the Caloosahatchee
River, and provides hurricane storage and
services. For more information go to www.
