function in our community in spite of their
disabilities by providing therapy, medication
and support for persons coping with mental
illnesses and addictions and serving those
who are incarcerated or school children
with special needs. The list goes on and on...
all of these things and many more are ac-


complished by our very capable staff.
Our Director, Mr. Hosick, provides excel-
lent administrative assistance to the Board.
And the other other members of our Board
represent a wonderful cross section of skilled
persons bringing talents and leadership ca-
pabilities to the Board that makes our Board
and management team second to none for
expertise and experience."

Boy Scouts of America celebrated 100
years on Feb. 8, and what better way to cel-
ebrate says a Belle Glade youth.
On Feb. 8, Juan Villanueva faced his
toughest challenge since his swimming
badge. Juan faced newly appointed Eagle
Committee Chair Judge William L. Hendry,
David Fox, new Membership Chair and Ray
Worley newly elected Chairman of the Big
Lake District of BSA.
The committee is proud to be led by
Judge Hendry who received his Eagle in
1943
Community United Methodist Church of
Belle Glade sponsors Troop 622. A proud
Scout Master, April Stafirn brought Juan to
Okeechobee to meet the committee.
After over an hour of tough questions
about his experience in Scouting and in his
community, Juan was awarded his Eagle
designation.
He joins a long list of Eagles in our Dis-
trict and we are proud to have him. His


work on his Eagle Project involved orga-
nizing and repairing storm damage to his
Church property.
This gave Church members and their
school children access to outdoor space
for classes and other Church functions.
The meeting was held at the American
Legion Memorial Post in Okeechobee who
sponsors Scout Troop 964 and Venture
Crew 2903
A special thanks to the post for all that
they do for our community.

Clewiston, FL -- 11.S. Sugar said today that
negotiations that began January 28, 2010 re-
sulted in a new labor contract that was ap-
proved Monday by its Union workers. The
previous labor contract was scheduled to
expire at midnight February 22, 2010. Cur-
rently the Cornpany's sugar industrial and
railroad workers are nernbers of the Inter-
national Association of Machinists and Aero-
space Workers, Lake Local Lodge #57.
"We look forward to continuing a suc-


cessful partnership with the IAMAW and our
Union workers," said Judy Sanchez, director
of corporate cornrunications.
"The hard working union nernbers of
11.S. Sugar Corporation overwhelming rati-
fied a new three-year deal with the Con-
pany. We would like to thank 11.S. Sugar for
working with us in these difficult economic
times. We feel this contract was fair and we
will continue to work with the Company in
the future," said Robert Miller, IAMAW busi-


ness representative.
The collective bargaining agreement
between 11.S. Sugar and the IAMAW, Local
#57 was approved by a majority of IAMAW
nernbers on February 22.
Terrns of the contract included an annual
wage increase and an annual bonus pay-
Inent. Bonus payments in subsequent years
may be adjusted based on financial perfor-
inance.
Arnong a host of issues negotiated in the


proposed contract, Sanchez said that dif-
ferences regarding efficient management
of factory operations, work schedules and
work allocation along with economic issues
were satisfactorily resolved.
"We have invested hundreds of millions
of dollars in a state- of-the-art sugar Inanufac-
turing facility to be competitive in the global
sugar economy," Sanchez said. "Maintain-
ing positive labor relations is an important
component of our overall efficiency."

Glades County Democrat 7


February 25, 2010


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES -- Motorcycle riders can do
themselves a big favor during Chalo Nitka
Festival week, Feb. 27 through March 6, in
Glades County. It is worth while to cruise
the scenic highways through one of south
Florida's most rural, undeveloped land-
scapes. The event celebrates the big bass in
Lake Okeechobee, and area residents put on
a good show and feast in the Moore Haven
area.
Travel US 27 west out of Clewiston for
about 15 miles and enjoy the view of the Ca-
loosahathee River as you glide over the span
bridge into Moore Haven. This is where the
Big Bass Tournament is held, Feb. 27. The
historic town has a city park along River-
side Drive, and the Moore Haven Restaurant
is nearby. It is practically under the span
bridge. There is a youth livestock show,
March 1-4, at Bronson Arena where you can
also see the Ranch Rodeo, March 5 and 6.
During Chalo Nitka week, take advan-
tage of the other scenic county roads. Take
SR 78 east, which begins on the west end
of Moore Haven, turn right onto SR 78 east
and take a trip to Fisheating Creek Wildlife
Management Area.
Just north of Fisheating Creek, sits the
anglers' community of Lakeport, where you
can find Harney Pond Canal boat ramp and
observation boardwalk. From the boardwalk
you can see the vast freshwater marshes of
Lake Okeechobee. The Seminole Brighton
Reservation is adjacent to Lake port.
Keep heading north on SR 78 east and
tour the fishing community of Buckhead
Ridge, near the big Kissimmee River, which
flows into the big lake.
Another section of Fisheating Creek and
Palmdale's Gatorama are worth a side trip


further west out of Moore Haven. Take US 27
west, which leads to the remote community
of Palmdale and visit Gatorama. This is an
old-time Flonida road-side attraction that has
been updated, and has one of the best alli-
gator and crocodile shows. Fisheating Creek
State Park Campground is nearby. Did you
pack your tent?
Another leg of SR 78 heads west to Orto-
na. Once again take US 27 west out of Moore
Haven until it intersects with SR 78 west and
turn left, which will take you past scenic cat-
tle country. Ortona has a community park, 3
fishing and boating neighborhoods, ancient
Indian mounds, and a yachting center. View
the Ortona Navigation Lock, which is a fa-


vorite spot for snook anglers.
In west Glades County, near the intersec-
tion of CR 731 and SR 74, there are many
sand and shell back roads. Slow down and
take your time. Did you pack your water
bottle?
March 6 is the biggest day of the Chalo
Nitka Festival and Rodeo in Moore Haven.
Events include a pancake breakfast, parade,
music, midway, alligator wrestling, and arts
and crafts. The food is incredible.
Glades County covers the entire west
bank of Lake Okeechobee. For more infor-
mation go to www.visitglades.com

GLADES -- The Glades County Women's
Club raises funds every year for scholar-
ships. One of their largest events is the an-
nual fashion show. This year it was held at
the newly renovated 'M' RV Resort, west of
Moore Haven, Feb. 20.
Many door prizes and boutique coupons
were given out to attendees. There was the
popular 50/50 raffle, and a raffle for an el-
ephant figurine collection. An afghan raffle
is on-going and will be done at Chalo Nitka,
March 6.
These simple efforts help fund the schol-
arships. According to Anne Coffey, club
president, the high school scholarships are
tailored for the average student who works
painstakingly for their academic grades, and
it gives the everyday boy or girl a chance to
add money to their college nest-egg.
The 'M' RV Resort's community hall is
spacious and allowed for an extra long buf-
fet table, plenty of seating, wardrobe fitting
room, kitchen, pantry and boutique shop-
ping area. Hot and cold dishes were offered


as casseroles, salads, soup, sandwiches, fin-
ger foods, beverages and desserts. Naturally,
everything was home cooked.

So p"eatou tesy to M ar'BgarBroM nm T
legend behind the soup adheres to the fact
that Momma would put everything in the
soup at the end of the garden season. It
was economical and nutritious. The soup at
the fashion show had plenty of beef, corn,
tomato, green beans, carrots, okra, green
peas, celery, and baby lima beans.
The fashion show and sale were done
through Boutique On Wheels, which fea-
tures travel-wear, cruise-wear and casual
sportswear. The boutique manager, Jea-
nine Phillip, was the announcer and she
described what the models were wearing.
Four club members volunteered to model
a selection of clothing. Margaret modeled a
blue, soft stretch denim jacket and pants. Di-
ane wore a black and white cotton, flower-
print blouse with coordinating slacks. Lind-
sey wore a stretch leaf-print shirt in 3 shades
of warm brown with capri pants. Barbara
modeled a two-piece, heavy cotton jacket
and pants done in raspberry.
Three Moore Haven High School stu-


dents were invited to serve food, assist with
duties and run errands. They were Yanesi
Velasquez, Anabel Jacobo and Gabriela
Galvez. Julie Wigton played piano music.
Jeanine Phillip thanked members, Barbara
Brown and Anne Coffey for organizing the


show. Afterwards, club members shopped
for boutique bargains on display. Fashion va-
rieties are items that cannot be found locally.
Mem rs' purchases also help with scholar-
