Ms. Steinshouer was able to
show that the writer's tender and
truthful descriptions of Florida
characters and images are just one
facet of her life as a woman in the
1920's through the 1940's.
Betty Jean Steinshouer's per-

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES-- Hank Mattson is liv-
ing proof that cowboys are not
extinct, and he wants enthusiasts
of cowboy lore to understand that
Florida was the birth place of the
cattle industry in America.
Mr. Mattson was raised as a
cow hunter, which is the regional
term for Florida cowboy. He men-
tioned that the Spanish explor-
ers brought cattle and horses to
Florida in 1521; which was way-
long before Dodge City saloons


sold beer. Early Native Americans,
Seminoles and early homestead-
ers took up cattle raising, and
they hunted cows that were hid-
ing sub-tropical jungles.
Hank Mattson is also known
as the Cracker Cowboy Poet.
Cracker refers to the Scottish
population that ventured into the
Florida wilderness. Mr. Mattson
commented that there are nu-
merous explanations for the term
"Cracker," which in Florida lore is
not derogatory but historical.
He researched the term and
the oldest form of the word is
"craic," and means chat or talk.
A craic or cracker told stories
and jokes, and tended to boast
sometimes. According to Hank
Mattson, Shakespeare coined the
term "cracker wind bag." Later
See Cowboys Page 24


Hank Mattson, Cracker Cowboy Poet, performed at the Glades
County public library during Chalo Nitka Festival week. He is a
working cow hunter who lives in Lake Placid.

orectal cancer is the second leading cause
of cancer-related deaths in the United States
for men and women combined. Each year,
about 150,000 Americans are diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about 50,000 die
from the disease. Regular screening through
colonoscopy can prevent colorectal cancer.
Lakeside Medical Center offers colonoscopy
screenings as an outpatient service.
"The problem with colon cancer is that
you could have it for years before symptoms
appear," said Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
who performs colonoscopy screenings at
Lakeside Medical Center. "By the time colon
cancer shows up on its own, it could be too
late. The ability to test, look for polyps and
remove them right then is critical in prevent-


they have a chance to develop into cancer.
Since it may take ten to fifteen years for pol-
yps to become cancerous, regular cancer
screenings will detect colorectal cancers at
an earlier stage when the disease is easier
to treat.
The procedure itself takes only about 20
minutes. Patients are sedated so they are
comfortable and asleep during the proce-
dure. A thin, flexible tube called a colono-
scope is inserted through the body into the
colon. A video camera on the end of the
colonoscope is connected to a display moni-
tor so the physician can closely examine the
inside of the colon. If detected, growths like
polyps can be removed. The patient wakes
up right after the procedure and is ready to

prevent colorectal cancer altogether. People
who have no identified risk factors should
begin regular screening at age 50, according
to the American Cancer Society. If the test
is normal, then another screening should
follow in 10 years. Those with a family his-
tory of colorectal cancer, such as a mother
father, brother or sister who has had the dis-
ease, should speak with their primary care
physician about screening at a younger age
and/or getting screened more frequently.
March is National Colorectal Cancer Aware-
ness month. To schedule a colonoscopy at
Lakeside Medical Center, consult with your
primary care physician, who will provide the
necessary referrals.
Nikerson Geneve, DO, is a primary care


preventive screenings like colonoscopies, to
oversee all aspects of his patients' health.
"As a primary care physician, I'm at the
helm of my patients' medical care," said Dr.
Geneve. "I have a relationship not only with
my patients, but also with the specialist who
is taking care of them. It's a team effort to
ensure and promote the well-being of the
patient."
Dr. Geneve's practice is located at 941 S.E.
1st Street, Belle Glade, FL 33430. To make an

"The Seminoles had become a beleaguered people,
fighting a war they could never win."


"Years ago, a college friend of mine told me how his
great-great grandparents survived a Tennessee winter

the undigested kernels of corn they dug from the mule

March 25, 2010


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
On February 8, 1838, General Jesup met
with several Seminole leaders near Fort Ju-
piter and negotiated peace terms. The Semi-
noles asked only that they be allowed to live
on reservation la dsa enhe Eegaes tJe-

officials, if the Seminoles would agree to set
up camps adjacent to the Army encamp-
ment and wait patiently and peacefully for
word from Washington.
A letter arrived from Washington on
March 16, 1838, from the Secretary of War,
Poinsett, denying the Seminole's request. In
the letter, Poinsett instructed General Jesup
to continue the war until all Seminoles were
shipped west. General Jesup requested a
meeting with the Seminole leaders, so he
could review Poinsett's decision, but got no
response.
Jesup now felt the Seminoles were act-
ing "gun shy" and might somehow be privy
to Poinsett's decision, so he immediately
dispatched Colonel David E. Twiggs and the
Second Dragoons to capture the Indians be-
fore they could slip away into the trackless

Eveels brought back 513 Seminoles, of
whom 151 were warriors. It was the largest
capture in the Second Seminole Indian War,
but raises a perplexing question by histori-
ans today.
How did a group of Seminoles that large
get caught napping by General Jesup, whose
reputation as a truce breaker preceded him
in the Everglades?
Shortly after this episode, General Je-
sup asked to be relieved of his command
because the Washington bureaucrats had
refused to grant the Seminoles, reservation
lands in the Everglades.
Jesup was very unhappy about this deci-
sion because the Everglades were swamp-
lands that no Americans desired, yet lands


A good corporate bean counter could
easily surmise that based on these figures,
there were approximately 1,800 hostile Sem-
mnoles remaining in Flonida.
On the other hand, an anthropologist
would quickly note an error in this figure,
stipulating that it failed to exclude the wom-
en, children and elderly, who weren't com-
batants.
All this speculation brings us to the


They were literally fighting for their lives
in a war that affected every facet of their life.
The Seminoles had become a beleaguered
people, fighting a war they could never win.
This life style was very stressing to the
Seminoles, whose culture, prior to the war
was sedimentary, living in villages, subsist-
ing on crops they grew and the livestock
they raised. Now they were a hunted people,
refugees in their own homeland that were


question, how many Seminole warriors re-
mained in Florida after General Taylor took
command in 1838?
Using a simple formula, we can derive a
rough, but somewhat inaccurate figure that
still reveals a startling statistic. Let's assume
that the average size Seminole family con-
sisted of four children, two parents and two
grandparents.
This formula would equate to one able
bodied male warrior per eight Seminoles.
Divide the number eight into 1,800 and
we have 225 warriors. Again, this figure is
a rough estimate, so let's compensate and
raise the number to 300, which is probably
an overestimate.
A shocking revelation; the highest pos-
sible estimate shows only 300 Seminole
warriors were challenging the United States
in 1838!
The 300 Seminole warriors are reminis-
cent of an event that occurred thousands of
years earlier in ancient Greece, when 300
Spartan warriors challenged the entire Per-
sian Army at the Battle of Thermopylae. His-
tory repeats itself, so it is fair to say that the


forced to flee each time someone cried
"wolf."
Many of the Seminoles began to starve
because of the relentless chase. Soldiers saw
this terrible plight, while the Seminoles were
camping at Fort Jupiter and waiting on word
from Washington. The women wore ragged
clothes that scarcely covered their naked-
ness, while those that had nothing, were
forced to wear the discarded corn sacks that
soldiers threw away.
Seminole women were observed pick-
ing up the kernels of corn dropped by the
horses, so great was their starvation. This
wasn't an isolated story, but a phenomenon
that would repeat itself again in the South
during the Civil War, when Northern Armies
invaded.
Years ago, a college friend of mine told
me how his great- great grandparents sur-
vived a Tennessee winter by following a
Northern Army's mule train and living off
the undigested kernels of corn they dug
from the mule manure.
The Seminole war, like all other wars,
had a great impact on the children. No
doubt many died from starvation or were
weakened and fell victim to diseases that
too hre rvere also the orphans that lost
their fathers, mothers and sometimes entire
faili s.a tSemir ole told mteoabout atsdka

Immokalee during the war.
Soldiers surprised a small band of Semi-
noles and attacked. A little girl was grabbed
and carried by a relative into the safety of
the Everglades. The girl's mother was never
found or heard from again.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.

sil display of prehistoric animals that once

ar cane harvesting, and the orange industry.

Seminole warriors were like their prototype,
the Spartans, who fought to preserve their
homelands against a nation that wished to
deprive them of land and liberty.
The Seminoles were not only outmanned,
but also outgunned because they had other
logistical problems to overcome.
.The American soldiers were supplied
with arms, food, clothing, and medical at-
tention.
Their sole mission was "search and de-
stroy." Unlike the soldiers, the Seminole
men not only fought, but in between battles,
hunted and foraged to support the families
they kept hidden away.
While on the run the Seminoles lost arti-
cles that they couldn't replace. Something as
simple as a knife was irreplaceable because
the Seminoles had few places to trade.


that would appease the Seminoles and end
the war. On May 15, 1838, a disgusted Gen-
eral Jesup turned his command over to Gen-
eral Zachary Taylor
The retiring General Jesup had been very
successful during his 18-month campaign.
Statistics show 2,900 Indians were captured
and 100 killed during that period of time.
Commanders before Jesup had been very
unsuccessful, but they too had captured or
killed Seminoles.
At the beginning of the Second Seminole
Indian War, military analysts estimated there
were approximately 5,000 Seminoles living
in Florida. This estimate included the Semi-
noles living on the Apalachicola reservations
(200) that had elected not to fight, but chose
to move west.

Choices
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every day of our lives we are confronted
with choices. Every choice we make, big or
small, has consequences. For better or for
worse, we have to live with those conse-
quences. Some choices we make determine
the quality of our lives and the quality of our
relationships. Some of the choices we make
determine our destiny and have eternal con-
sequences.
Edwin Thomas was a master on stage. In
1863, he was with his actor brother John in
the play Julius Caesar. It was a foreshadow-
ing of things to come that Edwin's brother
who played the assassin in Julius Caesar is
the same John who took the role of assassin
in Ford's Theatre on an April night in 1865
when he stole into the rear of the box in the
Washington Theater and shot Abraham Lin-
coln.
As you may have guessed, the last name
of the brothers was Booth: Edwin Thomas
Booth and John Wilkes Booth. Edwin was
never the same after that night. Shame from
his brothers' crime drove him into retire-
ment. He might never have returned to stage
had it not been for what happened at a New
Jersey train station. Edwin was awaiting his
coach when a well dressed young man,
pressed by the crowd, lost his footing and
fell in front of an oncoming train.
Without hesitation, Edwin locked a leg
around a railing, grabbed the man and
pulled him to safety.


Edwin did not recognize the young man
he'd rescued. The knowledge came weeks
later in a letter he carried in his pocket to
the grave, thanking Edwin for saving the life
of Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of Abraham
Lincoln.
Edwin and James Booth. Same father,
mother, profession, and passion. Yet one
chose life, the other death. How could it
happen? I don't know, but the story is not
unique.
Look at the two criminals on the cross-
es on either side of Jesus. The two crimi-
nals have much in common. Convicted by
the same system, condemned to the same
death, surrounded by the same crowd.
Equ~all close to the sameseees esam J-
sus and one choose to mock Him and the
other choose to pray to Him? I don't know,
but they did. And when one prayed, Jesus
loved him enough to save him. When the
other mocked, Jesus loved him enough to
let him go -even though it probably tore at
His heart.
God allowed them the choice. He does
the same for us.
God's heart for each of us is to make
choices that lead to abundant life. He says
to His people through Moses, "I have set be-
fore you life and death, blessings and curs-
es. Now choose life, so that you and your
children may live and that you may love the
Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold
fast to Him." (Gen.30:19-20)
To choose Jesus is to choose life.


up His spirit (Luke 19:30). I hear Him saying
that the world has done its worst and now
that is over; from henceforth things will be
different for God's people. There is another
passage that some interpret as seeing this
dark day so affecting Jesus that He feels for-
saken by God.
During these darkest of moments, Jesus
is quoted "My God, my God, why have you
forsaken me (Matthew 27:46)" It would be
easy to think the Lord felt forsaken by God;
but that wouldn't be like God to forsake His
son, nor for the Son to be forsaken by the
Father. What then? These words are also
found elsewhere in Scripture. They are from
the Book of Psalms, Psalm 22:1. "My God,
my God, why have you forsaken me?...
Psalms ends with the reminder that "My soul
shall live for him, they shall be known as the
Lord's forever.
They shall come and make known to a
people yet unborn the saving deeds that He
has done.(Psalm 22:29-30)" Jesus was recit-
ing from the Psalter! He was worshipping,
saying the prayers from the great Prayer
Book of the Old Testament -the Book of
Psalms! Feeling forsaken? No, worshipping!
A Psalm being recited is an appropriate act
of worship for this particular moment. Je-
sus, even at the worst of moments in histo-
ry, makes His spiritual offering to the Father.
That's the message of Good Friday to us all:
in the darkest of times, God is still ready to
hear, our prayers aren't in vain!
The Psalms also remind us God shall
help, "...and that right early." "The Lord Al-
mighty is with us"- always.

Grood Friday; What to do in
the darkest of momentS
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The next ten days recount the darkest
and most joyful days in this world. Sunday
is Palm Sunday, a moment of the Lord's tri-
umphal entry, then celebration of the Last
Supper with His disciples, arrest, trial, cru-
cifixion and death; all to be overshadowed
by Easter. We see the worst that the world
can do overcome by what God can do. It is a
witness to us all that good will triumph over
evil, right over wrong, life over death.
Much of the New Testament was written
during times of persecution, intolerance,
corruption and human tragedies of one sort
or another. Good Friday is the culmination
of what the world has to dish out; unfair-
ness, humiliation, persecution, the death of
an innocent, tragedy equal to any we have
seen before or since. With it, we regard the
responses of the central character in it all;
Jesus of Nazareth.
His last words convey to us a message
about our own tragedies and bad times, too.
Some are very human: "I thirst" or "Woman
behold your son..." Some are messages of
hope; "This day you will be with me in Para-
dise." At the darkest of moments there is still
hope; Jesus makes this plain to those who
rate themselves as unworthy but whom He
will take with Him. When the end comes,
Jesus says simply "It is finished!" and gives

FOr local residents of
l0W-income

Free home improvements are now
available for Glades County, through the
American Recovery and Re-Investment Act
(ARRA), also known as "The Obama Plan".
Interested clients may apply through Cen-
tro Campesino Farmworker Center, Inc.,
a South Florida community development
agency with 38 years of experience in the
creation of affordable housing and weather-
ization and rehab services to rural residents.
The purpose of the ARRA services is to re-
duce monthly energy bills for households
of low-income, giving special consideration
to the elderly, the disabled, to families with
children under the age of 12, and to those
with repeated high energy bills.
setaf a ble om rmsisp cially-trained
dits for families who qualify and make im-
provements which include, but are not lim-
ited to: installing solar screens in windows,
repairing or replacing windows and doors
which are ill-fitting or do not meet hurricane
standards, replacing refrigerators and water
heaters which are not energy efficient, in-
sulating roofs, and in some cases repairing
or replacing poorly-operating heating and
cooling systems. All services are provided
free-of-charge to local residents.
"Centro Campesino is delighted to be
able to offer this comprehensive assistance
to residents of low-income during such chal-
lenging economic times," says executive di-
rector Diane Cantor. "We are making deter-
mined outreach to Glades County now since
we want to be certain to reach those most
in need of help with the funds available to
us over the next 14 months. Although we're
based in Florida City, our experienced staff
work in the field covering eight rural coun-
ties."
Eligibility for these weatherization and re-
hab services is determined based on income
which cannot exceed 200% of the national
poverty level, which ranges from $21,660
for a family of one to $74,020 for a family
of eight. In selecting families to receive as-
sistance, the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs, which has made grant funds
available to Centro Campesino, directs pro-
viders to give preference to owner-occupied
homes, elderly (60 years-plus) or physically

disabled residents, families with children un-
der 12 and households with a high energy
burden (repeated high utility bills).
How Can Someone Find Out If They Are
Eligible to Receive Services?
All anyone has to do is complete a simple
application that can be obtained by contact-
ing Intake Coordinator, Mayra Rodriguez at
305-245-7738, ext. 236 or mailing her to
mrodriguezecentrocampesino.org or via
fax at: 305-247-2619. She will be delighted
to answer questions, send applications, and
provide any additional information needed
about allowable home improvements. "We
will be taking applications until all funds are
expended. So please let us hear from you,"
says Rodriguez, who is bilingual and is hap-
py to interpret for those who need assistance
in completing the applications.
How Long Does It Take To Get the Work

Do ntro Campesino works with licensed
general contractors throughout the eight
county region. After the scope of allowable
services is determined by Centro's manager
of Rehab Services, Chris Barraza, the work
to be completed in each home is open for
bid. Once the bid is assigned, the work is
completed within a two-week period. Ho-
meowners can also be reassured that all
work is inspected and approved by Centro
Campesino staff as well as by state of Florida
program monitors.
Does ARRA Make a Difference People
Can See?,
"I often hear back from families who tell
me that for the first time they can remem-
ber they are warm in their own homes and
that they finally have functional appliances,

Kissimmee Waterway is a wild and wondrous place


14 Glades County Democrat


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


March 25, 2010


The Kissimmee Waterway is one of the
most beautiful and exciting recreation areas
in the state of Florida. Beginning in the head-
waters of the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes and
stretching to Lake Okeechobee, visitors to
the river have an opportunity to witness
some of Florida's most spectacular natural
areas.
Originally 103 miles of meandering wa-
terway, the Kissimmee River was channel-
ized in the 1960s in response to periodic
flooding in the area. Carving a straight canal
from the Chain of Lakes to Lake Okeecho-
bee shortened the river to 56 miles and cre-
ated the 300-foot wide, 30-foot deep C-38
canal.
Today, portions of the river have been
restored to their old meandering ways, leav-
ing nature to choose the path water will take
along its journey to Lake Okeechobee. Be-
cause of the natural disposition of restored
portions of the river, water levels here rise
and fall with the seasons. The sandy bot-
tom of the river channel shifts at the will of
the flowing water, creating a sandbar today
where none existed yesterday.
Veteran navigators have a few tips to
make your trip on the Kissimmee Waterway
more enjoyable:
*Go slow and take time to see what is
around you. The restored part of the Kissim-
mee River is home to many different types
of birds, some rarely seen. Take a birding
guide and see how many different types you
can identify.
*The wide river floodplain is best expe-
rienced by boat. The floodplain gives rise
to beautiful marshes featuring a variety of
emergent plants and is the best place to find
wading birds and fish. Take insect repellant
because there are also a lot of insects here.


Deer flies especially like the river floodplain
during certain times of the year, and they do
bite people.
*Use caution when boating here be-
cause you don't know what's around the
next turn. Each twist and turn in the restored
portion of the Kissimmee River opens up a


new vista, but it could be bloc
trees, sandbars or other naviga
Sandbars generally form on
curves, and deeper water is usl
the outside, but that's not alwa
*Alligators love the sandy b

the inside of Check water levels before going. Dur-
ually found to ing the dry season in the winter months,
ys true.portions of the river may not be passable
ys true.due to low water levels.
ankscreaed *The Kissimmee River/C-38 canal re-
he river chan- mains the primary flood control conduit for
the large area to the north. If river passage
is closed due to high flows, heed warnings.
During extremely high water, the river can
crest above tree tops, leaving unseen haz-
ards just below the surface of the water.
Extremely high water levels also make it
impossible to find river channels and can
lead to boaters becoming lost or in need
of rescue. Even experienced boat captains
have found the river to be treacherous dur-
ing high flow events. If officials say no, then
please don't go.
*Pay attention to any instructions the
locktender may provide when moving
through navigation locks. If you want to re-
turn after normal lock hours, be certain to
make arrangements with the locktender in
advance. He or she is allowed to charge a
fee for an after-hours lockage.
*Gas up before you go. There are no
places to get fuel along the restored portion
of the river.
For additional tips on traveling the Kis-
simmee River, please contact the Okeecho-
bee Service Center of the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District at 800-250-4200 or
864-462-5260. You can also stop by to visit
us at 205 N. Parrott Ave. on the second floor
~ i~ii~i ~ of the Bank of America building in down-
town Okeechobee. Our guide to the Kissim-
Submitted mee Waterway provides a map of the river
and pictur- as well as navigation tips and information
on the river restoration project.

What killed Jesus Christ?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
If a death certificate were issued today for
Jesus Christ's death, it would read: "cardiac
and respiratory arrest due to severe pulmo-
nary edema due to traumatic and shock
due to crucifixion. That's the conclusion of
Frederick Zugibe, A Rockland County, N.Y.,

mg 'icl exrao erd wheoh woo aafewoyear
his 30-year study of the crucifixion.
The investigation "was by far the most
challenging and intriguing experience that I
have ever encountered," said Zugibe, who
was also an adjunct associate professor of
pathology of Columbia University.
Zugibe pieced together a grimly detailed
picture of what he and theologian believe
happened to Christ in the hours before His
death. His findings are based on research
and the markings from the Shroud of Turin -
which he believes is Christ's burial cloth,
He writes that after Christ suffered intense
mental fatigue in th Gare of Geh mane

tails that had small weights of metal or bone.
Jesus was reduced to a bleeding, mangled
mass of welts and swellings, in traumatic
shock, no longer able to stand, and craving
water," Zugibe wrote.

who hung from a 92 X 78 inch cross with
leather gauntlets around their hands and a
belt around their feet.
The volunteers showed an increase of
pain, psychological feelings, sweating, re-
spiratory distress and muscle twitching after

sev't ri ingt obi r tion noted in all sus-
pended volunteers was that the body did
not touch the cross except in the shoulder
region, where there was very slight contact
" Zugibe wrote. The result was a position
with the head arched backward against the
upright vertical section of the cross to relieve
the strain on the shoulders. From the re-
search, Zugibe said it is hard to understand
why Pontius Pilate reportedly was shocked
that Christ died in less than six hours.
"The significance of mental suffering is
nor frequently real z d, du idbe wrote "Jhe-

scourging and the crowning of thorns, the
effects of carrying the cross and the cruci-
fixion process, and anyone with a medical
background cringes and wonders converse-

wears his cow hunter clothes and displays
well used frontier items like pans, utensils,
tools, rope, saddle, knives and a pistol. The
firearm is a Navy Colt 45 Cap and Ball that
belonged to his father, a cow hunter.
Mr. Mattson praises the Cracker women
of Old Florida. He explained that they were
self-sacrificing and could do it all, and they
were expected to produce offspring, too. His
stories come from the heart, and a few tears
may be shed between the belly-laughs.
Hank Mattson was in Moore Haven,
March 5, at the public library during Chalo
Nitka Festival week. He is a member of the
Cattlemen'sAssociation, Professional Rodeo
Hall of Fame and Friends of Florida Folk.

the upper classes used cracker to refer to the
poor people.
It was only natural for some Cracker
cowboys like Hank Mattson to become sto-
rytellers, poets and punsters. He uses his
personal experiences of the last 72 years as
fodder for poems, humor and a wee-bit of
tragedy. He also borrows stories that were
handed down from the turn-of-the-century
cattle ranchers and cow hunters, which
helps preserve the 400-year old history of
the Florida cattle industry.

tivals, libraries and events and puts on an

Locally, the Eagles raise money for col-
lege scholarships and disaster funds. They
do Homeland Charities for Christmas and
Thanksgiving baskets, a children's Christ-
mas party; and they help those in need or
those who have had a house fire. Saturday
nights are Steak Night, and Monday nights
have Bingo games. These are open to the
public, but only members can order an al-
coholic beverage. Otherwise, tea, soda and
coffee are served.
On Saturday, March 27, there is a 50's
sock-hop dance following the steak dinner.
On Saturday, April 27, the steak dinner is
a fund raiser for Project Graduation, which
is a prom night function for Moore Haven

planned soon.

passion for Florida, and her poetic descrip-
tions of it seemed to keep her going; despite
difficulties with her publisher, a law suit, a
jealous neighbor, and segregation of the rac-
es. She was greatly disappointed when her
publisher refused to visit her on an alligator
hunt because she was a single woman.
The Clewiston Museum audience received
her warmly, and Betty Jean Steinshouer left
them wanting to know more about Majorie
Kinnan Rawlings. The writer's novels and
poems are available at the public libraries in
Clewiston, LaBelle and Moore Haven.
