GLADES -- The Fisheating
Creek Wildlife Management Area
(WMA), and its Fort Center historic
site was a gathering place for Jakes
on April 17. Jakes are young wild
turkeys, and that is the nickname
for girls and boys who love being
in the great outdoors. Generally,
Jakes are 13 years or younger.
The National Wild Turkey
Federation (NWTF) created and
sponsored Jakes Day events for
youngsters and their families in
the spring. The NWTF is a conser-
vation organization. Back in the
1930s, when people went turkey
hunting they found that there were
hardly any turkeys left in America.
With conservation efforts from


hunters and outdoor enthusiasts,
the wild turkey made a dramatic
comeback. In the 1930s, there had
only been about 30,000 turkeys
left in the nation, but with resto-
ration programs, the wild turkey is
close to 7 million strong.
The Jakes Day event at Fisheat-
ing Creek WMA was held near
Lakeport in Glades County, which
is on the west shore of Lake
Okeechobee. Grant Steelman
of Flonida Wildlife Commission
helped organize Jakes Day which
introduces boys and girls to the
joy of the outdoors. Supervisors,
chaperones and family volunteers
provide children with hands-on-
events such as fly fishing, archery,
wildlife identification, hiking, rid-

Be the wall between teens and alcohol


The Drug Free Hendry Coalition (DFHC)
is launching a multi-media campaign in-
tended to encourage and support parents,
retailers, and community members in their
efforts to keep teens from drinking.
Over the next year, the Drug Free Hendry
Coalition in partnership with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office, Clewiston Police
Department, Hendry County Schools, De-
partment of Juvenile Justice, Hendry County
Health Department, Hendry Glades Behav-
ioral Health, and the Department of Children
and Families will ask the community to Be
the Wall between teens and alcohol.
The simply stated campaign is designed
on the premise that while alcohol may be
the primary substance of choice for teens
across the state and country, underage drink-
ing should be the single most preventable at
risk behavior among our teenagers.
Jeni Dyess, the Program Coordinator of
the Drug Free Hendry Coalition states, "Un-
derage drinking comes down to access and
acceptance -if we keep alcohol out of the
hands of our teens, they cannot use it. If we
let them know we expect them to make
good decisions, they are more likely to live
up to those expectations.
"We are asking all community members
to help us limit access to alcohol for teens by
locking up your in-home supply and report-
ing places where alcohol is being served to


teens. We are asking Hendry County parents
to talk to your teens about underage drink-
ing and its consequences, and to tell them
you expect them not to drink until they are
21 years old."
In Hendry County the 2009 Student So-
cial Norms Survey reports that most teens
are not drinking.
However, of the 31% who report drinking
on a 30 day basis, over half (17%) are self-
reported binge drinkers. Current research in-
dicates the teen brain is still developing until
the mid-20s.
The introduction of alcohol, particularly
in large quantities, may impair brain devel-
opment.
The developing teen brain also makes
teens more impulsive and less likely to con-
sider consequences of their behavior -for
this reason; the campaign encourages all
adults to be firm, clear, and consistent when
talking with teens about alcohol.
The multi-media campaign is part of a
partnership between Hendry County and
the Department of Children and Families
and Florida Office of Drug Control.
Its components include an interactive
web site where parents can text their teen,
humorous posters about natural commu-
nication gaps between teens and parents,
community displays, guerilla marketing
strategies, and more.


Local agencies and businesses wishing
to participate in the campaign by displaying
images should contact Project Coordinator,
Jeni Dyess (863) 674-4041.
Questions ab out the Hendry County cam-
paign may also be directed to Jeni Dyess via
phone or e-mail JenniferDyessedoh.state.
fl.us. Questions about the statewide cam-
paign should be directed to Amity Chandler
941-815-7743.
What is the Drug Free Hendry Coalition?
The Drug Free Hendry Coalition is com-
munity members coming together to ad-
dress alcohol and other substance abuse in
Hendry County among young adults, mid-
dle, and high school students.
We will work to assess our resources
and gaps, create more systematic, environ-
mental strategies, and promote the use of
evidence-based prevention programs within
our community.
Drug Free Hendry encourages commu-
nity advocacy involving youth, law enforce-
ment, parents, and businesses in coalition
activities, and promoting public awareness
of substance abuse in Hendry County.
Our Mission: We are dedicated to em-
powering youth, and over time adults, to
reject harmful substances by increasing
education, motivation, collaboration, and
awareness to create a safe and healthy com-
munity.

Your local Extension office offers this col-
umn for local gardeners, and we depend on
folks sending us questions. This week we
received many questions -and here are the
answers to a couple of the more interesting
calls or visits that have come in to our of-
fice.

Purple PastureS
What's with all the pretty flowers now
popping up in our pastures and roadsides?
I see several small pretty pink to blue wild-
flowers, and another that is shooting up
from a big plant with lots of spikes?
Thanks for your question. One plant
I've noticed in local pastures is toadflax (Li-
naria canadensis). About a foot tall when in
bloom, a flat clump of leaves would hardly
ever be noticed, but in the cool times of late
winter or early spring, it shoots up a foot tall
spike that is topped by a dozen or so pink


to lavender flowers. A careful look at the
individual flowers shows a shape that looks
like a snapdragon. Look in roadside ditches
or pastures that have not been mowed. An-
other very similar wildflower is a Bay Lobe-
lia (Lobelia feayana), which shoots to three
feet tall flower stalk. A close look at the Bay
Lobelia shows that the lower flower petals
are slightly pointed. Both can add a pink to
puTpleo eal Is iyslpe vd rlums are this-
tles (Cirsium spp.). Some have pink or pur-
ple flowers, while others are yellow in color.
They all rapidly turn into fluffy seed heads.
These blow the seeds into what sometimes
looks like a snowstorm. When they land,
they will grow into persistent weeds that are
not eaten by livestock, form prickly leaves
that hurt bare feet or bare hands that try to
pull them from lawns, and can be seen in sod

(There also is a yellow-flowered form called


Sowthistle (Sonchus spp.) that is more com-
mon in landscapes and gardens.)
Slimy Mulch
Our school recently added nice mulched
area around our playground. It seems that
the students are not the only critters that like
it; every morning it looks like some kind of
animal visited the place overnight and left
some disgusting piles of what looks like spit
up food. Any idea of how to get these crea-
tures out of here? ~ Bart
Thank for your for your question! Actu-
ally there are no critters that are leaving their
calling card; it's the result of a slime mold
that causes the decay of dead woody organic
material, like mulch. While the spores may
have come in with the mulch, it is equally
possible that they blew in from another
place nearby. I had another local person ask
me about this infamous "dog vomit" mold


last December, but this one seems to be a
much larger patch.
While it looks terrible, the slime will
quickly dry out into a caked splotch that is
filled with millions of black spores, ready to
blow somewhere else. It is not poisonous,
not harmful, but there is no fungicide spray
to prevent it from growing. Since the "spit-
up pile" look is not what you want in your
pat eond ,utg stoe i Id If tte ec rd
est trash bin.

A frequent venture
The Clewiston church donated tomatoes, but in the past has offered dona-
tions of other vegetables to residents in need of them. The church does not
check income level, or gauge needs. It simply helps residents load the fresh
food onto their vehicles.


Something for nothing
A church in Clewiston believes in giving without asking for anything in return.
Recently, the members of the Vida Nueva church in town distributed many
pounds of tomatoes to anyone who stopped by to collect the produce.

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES -- Ashley Braswell, West Glades
School in Muse, was awarded the Teacher of
the Year 2011 for all Glades County Schools
April 13. The Golden Apple Celebration ban
quet was held at the J.J. Wiggins Founda-
tion building in Moore Haven. Ms. Braswell
is a recreation therapy degree professional
who completed the Alternative Certification
Program during her first year at West Glades
School in 2006.
Ashley Braswell is from Richmond, Vir-
ginia and graduated from Old Dominion
University in 1995. She taught pre-kinder-
garten in Lehigh Acres, then came to West
Glades to teach kindergarten and lead its
FAIR Master Trainer team. She is a school
improvement team member. Ms. Braswell
was a recipient of the National Guard's Molly
Pitcher Award.
The Florida Department of Education Ma-
cy's Teacher of the Year Award honors class-
room teachers who instill the love of learn-
ing in students. At the start of each school
year, superintendents are sent nomination
packets. Usually, districts have each school
nominate a teacher who goes through a se-
lection process.
Eventually, one teacher is selected to rep-
resent the district as a nominee for the state
level. Full time, K-12 public school teachers,
adult education teachers, guidance counsel-


ors, media specialists, and postsecondary
vocational/tech teachers who work with
students in a classroom environment are
eligible.
Kimberly Toms was recognized at the
banquet as Moore Haven Elementary
School's Teacher of the Year. She is a Moore
Haven Junior-Senior High School salutato-
rian and earned a degree with Nova South-
western University. Ms. Toms has taught in
the district for 21 years and now teaches
kindergarten at MHES. She is a team leader,
mentor and FAIR trainer.

bring home several district, regional and

state semi finalists football team. He has
taught P.E., health, science, and alternative
education in the classroom.
Melody Webber was recognized April 13

ber has taught in Michigan and Okeechobee,
Florida. Currently, both she and her husband

troduce technology skills to her kindergarten


students.
Eric Simmons, MHHS Salutatorian, per-
formed "America the Beautiful"; and former
Hendry County Schools superintendent,
Tom Conners, gave the invocation.
Laura Abern, previous teacher ofthe year,
was the guest speaker. Ms. Abern inspired
fellow teachers to not give up on their stu-
dents or themselves. The satisfaction of be-
ing a teacher grows through the years spent
in the classroom. Laura Abern encouraged
educators to make changes in instruction
and management, because students change
through the passing decades.

As grilling season approaches, remember recipes for fire safety


The National Fire Protection Associa-
tion (NFPA) is reminding outdoor cooks
not to forget about grill fire safety as the
peak months for grill fires arrive. People
with gas grills should take extra precau-
vins ven 20 3-2006, gas-fueled grills we e
grill fires and were involved in 6,400 home
fires, including structure and outside fires.
The leading cause of gas grill fires was a
leak or break in hoses
"Nobody wants to see their backyard
barbeque go up in flames," said Lorraine
Carli, vice president of communications
for NFPA. "There are simple measures that
can be taken to avoid charring dinner and
setting anything on fire."
Although gas grills are used approxi-
mately one-and-a-half times more often
than charcoal grills, they were involved in
five times as many fires. Charcoal or other
solid-fueled grills were involved in 1,300,
or 16 percent, of home grill fires. The lead-
ing cause of these fires was something that
could burn being located too close to the
grill.
In 2007, approximately 9,600 people
went to hospital emergency rooms be-
cause of thermal burns caused by grills.
About one-third of the burns from gas grills
happened while lighting the grill. Gasoline
or lighter fluid was involved in roughly one-
quarter of charcoal or wood grill burns.
Children under five accounted for roughly
one-quarter of thermal gnill burns. Most
of these burns occurred when the child
bumped or touched the grill.
NFPA offers the following grill
safety tips:
*Use propane and charcoal grills in
outdoor areas only.
*Make sure the grill is located well away
from the home, deck railings and out from
under eaves and overhanging branches.
*Keep children and pets away from
the grill area: declare a three foot "kid-free
zone" around the grill.
*Use long-handled grilling tools to give
plenty of clearance from heat and flames.
*Remove grease or fat build up from
the grills and in trays below the grill so it
cannot ignite.
*Never leave the grill unattended.


Gas grills:
*Check the gas tank hose for leaks be-
fore using it for the first time each year by
applying a light soap and water solution to
lee hsoes f bth e is a propn 1k it wiH
there is no flame, do the following:
Turn off the gas tank and grill.
If the leak stops, have the grill serviced
by a professional before using it again.
*If it does not stop, call the fire depart-
ment.
*If you smell gas at any point while
cooking, get away from the grill immedi-
ately and call the fire department.
*Use only equipment with the label of
a recognized testing laboratory. Follow the
manufacturer's instructions on how to set
up the grill and maintain it.
Never store propane gas tanks in
buildings or garages. If you store a gas grill
inside during the winter, disconnect the
cylinder and leave it outside.

Charcoal grills:
*If you use a "charcoal chimney"
to start charcoal for cooking, use a long
match to avoid burning your fingers when
lighting the paper.
*If you use starter fluid, only use char-
coal starter fluid and never add charcoal
fluid when coals or kindling have already
been ignited.
Never use gasoline or any other flam-
mable liquid to get the fire going.
*Keep charcoal fluid away from chil-
dren and heat sources.
*When you are finished griling, let the
coals cool completely before disposing of
them in a metal container.

r ~In the rneantirne, we have all kinds of

to face every day.

Might doesn't necessarily
mean riht
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Proverbs 24:5-6 says "A wise man is
strong; yea, a man of knowledge increaseth
strength.
For by wise counsel thou shalt make thy
war, and in multitude of counselors there is
safety.
The story of David and Goliath is a con-
forting one. Its moral says clearly that MIGHT
does not always mean RIGHT.
If we will use our heads we can over-
corne seemingly impossible odds. There
was no question that Goliath was more
powerful than David, but David proved to be
the better warrior because he knew HOW
to use his HEAD, and he knew HOW to use
his FAITH.
There are times in the lives of each of us
when we feel like we don't stand a chance.
We are overwhelmed by the irnrensity
of our troubles, and they bury us under the
feelings of futilty and despair.
If we try to face these problems on our
own, we will probably fail. The wise person
seeks support in difficult times.
There is not better place to turn that the
Lord. He will support and strengthen us in
every situation. His counsel is solid and true.
if we will join forces with God, then there is
nothing on earth which can defeat us.
The Lord is a sure foundation, and the
evil of the world is powerless in the face of
His might.
Like David, we can rest assured that God
will stand beside us. Through faith we can
be Inade victorious over even the most pow-
erful forces on earth,
We must renernber that Jesus said,
"Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my
word shall not pass away."
We need to live by Jesus' words. He told
us if we believe the Gospel, repent of sins,
and are baptized that he would save us.
He told us that if we remain faithful to
Hirn unto death that he would give us the
crown of life, that fadeth not away.
He promised that if we seek first His king-
dorn and his righteousness that all the things
we need to keep body and soul together
would be added unto us. What a Savior and
Lord!

TWO sayings: A reason for

hope
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A wornan asked me one day about her
sick husband, "Why won't he do something
to help himself?'
After thinking a minute, I answered "I
guess he hasn't suffered enough!" She said
"I guess you're right."
In my collection of writings, poems, say-
ings, literature that I've put away for years
was a small card I renernber typing years
ago with a reflection.
I found the card among the Inaxirns and


read it once more. Somebody said or wrote
that "Discontent is the first step in the prog-
ress of a man or a nation."
I have thought ab out my own life and ma-
jor decisions made; often beginning with "I
do' iete way t ings are going" or "Tis
is not wo king" or "' h enough."
As I reflect on the people I know, it is
often discontent with what is going on that
makes f or change -and progress.
We wonder about why things seem to
take so long sornetirnes for anything to hap-
pen but I have found out that patience may
help.
Patience may not be idly standing by;
waiting may bring assurance that the course
to be taken is the right one and that things
have been thought through before any hap-
hazard action.
The Biblical accounts are full of things
seeming to take a long time; the people of
Israel living in slavery in Egypt for hundreds
of years, Moses taking forty years to make a
two-week trek through the wilderness, the
Babylonian captivity just to narne a few.
Sornetirnes it takes many years for a peo-
ple to rise up, or an individual to say "I've
had enough!"
Finally, the time is right and ideas becorne
actions.
Paul, in his Epistle to the Galatians re-
minds us "But when the time was fully
corne, God sent His Son, born of a wornan'
born under the law, to redeem those under
the law that we might receive the full rights
as sons (Galatians 4:4)."...thousands of
years, perhaps, from the beginning of cre-
ation until the mornent was right.
Ihad always heard that "The mills of
God grind slowly" -and later learned that
the rest of that saying was "...but they grind
exceedingly fine."
As I read of the difficulties and problems
around us, there is also hope.
After a tragedy, mines will be better in-
spected and ventilated, buildings will be
built to a different code to withstand earth-
quakes or hurricanes, neighborhoods will
stand together to resist violence, abuses
will no longer be covered up, people will be
motivated to find cures and search for more
effective treatments, human beings will be
more humane in the treatment of one an-
other, the list goes on.
The hard times, the pain and suffering,
the loss is not wasted. When the right mo-
Inent cornes; people will move.
God in His wisdorn, chose the right mo-
Inent, "when the time was fully corne" to
send a Savior.
The right time had corne; it always does.
It cornes in the lives of individuals, cornru-
nities, nations, the world!

Biologists with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
believe the winter cold snap dramatically
reduced the numbers of Burmese pythons
in the wild.
"Based on observations and reports from
python removal permit holders, biologists
and hunters, we believe 50 percent of the
wild Burmese python population died as a
result of the record cold weather," said Scott
Hardin, the FWC's Exotic Species Section
leader.
"These seasonal kills are beneficial in
helping to control nonnative reptile popula-
tions.
The cold snap occurred immediately be-
fore the pythons' mating season, and FWC


officials hope it hindered this year's repro-
ductive season.
However, a portion of the population
did survive and still poses a threat to South
Flonida if not managed properly.
The FWC recognizes that there are many
local hunters who really know the swamps
and woods where they hunt and have a
vested interest in helping nid South Flonida of
these invasive, nonnative reptiles.
Beginning Aug. 28, licensed hunters who
also have the necessary permits (wildlife

bealaowe n o dhar rm pte aofpcnermc r

Future opportunities to be

The six-week special season for capture
and removal of reptiles of concern from
state-managed lands around the Everglades
has come to an end with no reported har-
vests.
But beginning in late August, those with
a hunting license and a $26 wildlife manage-
ment area (WMA) permit will again have
the opportunity to capture and remove non-
native reptiles from public lands.
Reptiles of concern include the Burmese
python, reticulated python, northern and
southern African rock python, amethystine
or scrub python, green anaconda and Nile

quiet, but it also has disadvantages. Rural
crashes usually involve higher speeds; and
victims are more likely to not wear a seat
belt, compared to their urban counterparts.
It often takes a longer time for first respond-
ers to arrive at a crash due to a longer travel
distance. According to FHWA statistics,
severe rural hazards that are not found in
urban areas may be outdated signs, dark
roads, sharp pavement drop-offs; and trees
and poles closer to the roadway. The data
does not mention crashes with livestock or
wildlife.
National Highway Traffic Safety Admin-
istration (NHTSA) data from 2007 reports
that 23 percent of the U.S. population lived
in rural areas, yet rural deaths made up 57
percent of all traffic fatalities. However, as
grim as it may sound, the data also shows
that improvements were made in rural
safety from 1998 to 2007 because these
deaths decreased by 9 percent. Unfortu-
nately, urban fatalities went up 8 percent in
this time span.
In 2007, the NHTSA reported that 57
percent of alcohol impaired driving crashes
occurred in rural areas, whereas 43 per-


cent of these crashes were in urban areas.
Strangely enough, 68 percent of all urban
fatal crashes happen on roads with speeds
posted at 50 m.p.h. or less; while 67 per-
cent of rural fatal crashes happen when
the speed is posted at 55 m.p.h. or higher.
No data is listed to explain this difference.
There is also a greater percentage of roll-
over crashes on rural roads.
Statistics on rural Florida roads are exam-
ined in an FDOT/FHWA compact disc titled
"Local Roads Safety Resource". Florida is in
the top ten states with the most rural hot
zones, or rural crash zones. Most of these
states are in the southeast and southwest,
but not all are in the south. Florida tops the
list with 18 hot spots, while California is sec-
ond on the list with 13. Locally, SR 80 and
US 27 are targeted on the Florida map with
an alert icon shown in the resource disc.

Florida is in the top ten list
fOr rural crash hot spotS

GLADES -- Community Traffic Safety
Team (CTST) membership is open to the
public and local officials. An FDOT coordi-
nator attends meetings in order to provide
local residents with solutions to lessen the
number of vehicle crashes. The FDOT co-
ordinator assists with safety for pedestrians
and bicycle riders, too. The Glades County
CTST/FDOT coordinator, Debra Stallings,
must have input from local people in order
to pinpoint safety hazards.
In 2008, the Federal Highway Adminis-
tration (FHWA) found that over 6 million
lane-miles of rural roads make up the total
8.4 million lane-miles of roads within the
United States. Local entities own or oper-
ate 80 percent of these roads, which means
that local people are the primary means to
improving rural road safety.
A rural lifestyle can be beautiful and

Lake Placid set up a booth that helped Jakes
learn about snakes, and wildlife skull iden-
tification. Parents and chaperones put forth
a great effort to cook and prepare food,
to transport and guide youngsters, and to
provide an example of outdoor ethics and
sportsmanship.
Here are a few things that Jakes learn
about wild turkeys. Do you know why gob-
blers strut? Well, the gobblers, or males
strut in order to attract a turkey hen during
the mating season. Do you know which
turkey subspecies has the longest spurs on


gobblers' legs? The longest spurs are found
on Eastern and Florida turkeys. How long
does it take a turkey hen to lay her clutch of
10 to 12 eggs? Well, it takes a full two weeks
for her to deposit her eggs into the nest.
This annual NWTF event is held in areas
in the United States and Canada. The con-
servation event helps Jakes learn skills that
they can take into the field while camping,
hiking, fishing, hunting and stay safe and
have fun. For more information contact 800-
