Hendry-Glades officials met in LaBelle


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES/HENDRY --The
Glades Hendry Boards of County
Commissioners met jointly on
April 22 at the EMS Station in
LaBelle. There is a long tradition
of cooperation between the two
counties, especially in terms of
public safety.
Bob Jones, Glades County
public safety director, explained
Glades' offer to train Hendry fire
fighters for the state exam and for
preparation should dangerous
situations occur, such as struc-
ture fires.
Mr. Jones and Kevin McCarthy,
Hendry commissioner, reported


on the difficulty small counties
have had across the nation with
insurance issues and legislation;
and the use of professional fire
fighters. The past work of volun-
teers in small counties was ac-
knowledged as a necessity to pro-
tect families and neighbors, and
now volunteers can be trained
and utilized at brush fires.
"If we're going to work togeth-
er we may as well train together,"
said Bob Jones.
Larry Hilton, Glades assistant
county manager, suggested the
new U.S. 29 bridge should be
constructed east of LaBelle, and
that the old U.S. 29 draw bridge
can remain as a Business 29.
Russell Echols, Glades commis-
sion chairman, encouraged the


FDOT placement of the U.S. 29
bridge further east, rather than
in western Hendry County. He
mentioned building a new bridge
near Lee County would only en-
courage residents in west Glades
to shop in Lee County rather than
in LaBelle.
Shane Parker, Hendry County
engineer, reminded all local gov-
ernment officials that ownership
of the new bridge must be con-
sidered because if it is placed fur-
ther east at Birchwood, the cost
of maintenance will fall with the
city and/or county rather than
with FDOT. Karson Turner, Hen-
dry commissioner, opined that
he did not encourage the same

Local teens create

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES -- Immigration reform
is a discussion topic throughout
Florida, and it affects young adults
in Glades County who wish to join
the U.S. military or enroll in a col-
lege or vocational school. They

public school, their undocumented

An anonymous local child tells
some of this story. This child has
been in the country since the age
of 5 months. Suddenly at age 10,
even though possessing a legal
social security card, this school
student's world was turned upside
down.
"I grew up in the U.S. oblivious
to the fact that I was undocument-

could be illegal. My ignorance
was due to the fact that for a few

The United Way of Hendry and Glades
held its annual Giving Rocks event at River-
Bend Motorcoach Resort on April 17. Over
225 people attended, rocking the night away
to good music and raising $12,858 for the
United Way and United Way partner agen-
cies in Hendry and Glades Counties.
The event was sponsored by Alico, Inc.,
Johnson Prewitt and Associates, Family Eye
Care, CenturyLink, Ace Homecare and the
Kiwanis Club of LaBelle. Phil Pelletier, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser acted as the
Master of Ceremonies. The LaBelle High
School Jazz Band performed for the audi-
ence while everyone enjoyed dinner. The
event was highlighted by a silent auction
which included items such as gift certificates
to local restaurants and hotels, and gift bas-
kets of food and fine wine.
The event committee was chaired by
Julie Osterhout who was very pleased with
the turn-out at the fundraiser. "I would like
to thank the generous organizations and in-
dividuals who have contributed to the suc-
cess of Giving Rocks. Giving Rocks is our
big fundraising event every year, and it is a
very important part of helping us reach the
$197,000 goal for our United Way," said Ju-
lie Osterhout. She added, "Giving Rocks sup-
ports not only the United Way of Hendry and
Glades, but over 30 non-profit United Way
agency partners. Our friends and neighbors
who are in need will benefit from the money


raised at the event."
The local network of thirty-four United
Way partner agencies and programs will re-
ceive funds from the 2009-2010 United Way
of Hendry and Glades fundraising campaign.
These agencies include: The Salvation Army,
the Children's Advocacy Center, Child Care
of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families and
many others. This network serves a diverse
range of needs nurturing children and youth,
strengthening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly and dis-
abled live independently, and empowering
communities by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods. The network of
United Way agencies helped over 21,000
people in Hendry and Glades Counties last
year.
Extensive volunteer involvement allows
the United Way to keep fundraising costs
extremely low, and community volunteers
evaluate agency performance and thor-
oughly study agency budgets and programs
to make sure United Way dollars are spent
efficiently and with impact. All money raised
through the United Way of Hendry and
Glades Counties campaign remains in the
Hendry and Glades area aiding members of
the community who really need the help.
In addition to raising funds for human
service organizations in our community, the
United Way promotes partnerships and col-
laborations among agencies, helping them


to work together focusing on issues and so-
lutions that continue to improve lives. The
United Way of Hendry and Glades offices are
located in the LaBelle United Way House,
1 17 Fort Thompson Avenue, LaBelle.

Hendry Regional Medical Center's imag-

with a near film-less process thanks to the
recent purchase of a PACS computer sys-
tem. PACS (Picture Archive Communica-

store, share, and display digital x-rays.
After the patient's x-ray/imaging proce-
dure is performed, the images are immedi-
ately available for viewing, much like a digi-

A radiologist reviews the images on a
computer screen and dictates a report for
the patient's healthcare provider.
PACS also eliminates the need to manu-
ally file, retrieve, or transport film jackets. It
has the ability to deliver timely and efficient
access to images, interpretations, and other
related data. PACS breaks down the physical
and time barriers associated with traditional
film-based image retrieval, distribution, and
display.

can show up at our facility with a fractured

sure whether they want to put the patient
in a helicopter and fly him to the coast for
neurosurgery.
Now they can call the facility and ask the
doctors there to take a look at the patient's

PACS. (The facility would need access and
authorization to access the PAC system.)
Our hospital physicians can even call a spe-
cialist at home, and this doctor can log in
from a home system, using the web viewer,
to look at the images and help make a judg-

Company reports successful
sugarcane harvesting and
prOCeSSing season

Clewiston, FL -U.S. Sugar Corporation
completed its annual sugarcane harvest op-
erations late Wednesday and its Clewiston
Sugar Factory finished grinding the last rail-
cars of sugarcane on Thursday.
'Although this crop was hampered by
several hard-freeze events during one of the
coldest winters on record and unusually wet
conditions, U.S. Sugar still produced 500,000
tons more sugarcane than last year, an 18
percent increase in tons per acre that low-
ered the Company's cost of production,"
said Judy Sanchez, director of corporate
communications.
"Almost all of our crop experienced wide-
spread freeze damage, yet U.S. Sugar admin-
istration's total cane production was 11 per-
cent higher than 2009 and 13 percent higher
than its 5-year average," Sanchez said.
"With a proprietary, automated harvest-
ing schedule and its own dedicated railroad


transportation system, U.S. Sugar was able
to quickly and continually adjust its harvest
and delivery schedule to harvest and process
the most severely freeze-damaged cane and
its independent grower cane at its factory to
minimize losses," said Sanchez.
Sanchez also said that with U.S. Sugar's
state-of-the-art sugar manufacturing facility
running on all cylinders in just its third year
and its refinery shattering production re-
cords, the Company processed an estimat-
ed 6.15 million tons of cane and produced
696,000 tons of sugar. The Clewiston Refin-
ery, which operates year-round to meet cus-
tomer demand, will surpass 14 million cwt.
of refined sugar products by October 31-
another record-breaking production year.
"Our refinery's record production has
coincided with increased sugar demand and
higher sugar prices, enabling the Company
to retire $200 million in debt utilized to build
the highly automated sugar facilities ahead
of schedule," Sanchez said.
Sanchez said that while its competitors
have been wasting their money criticizing
the Company's operations, U.S. Sugar had
been investing its money in creating one of


the world's most efficient sugar manufactur-
ing operations-necessary to compete in an
increasingly global economy.
"These investments have enabled us to
not only grow and process our own sugar
more efficiently but also to decrease the im-
pact of foreign sugar imports by profitably
importing and refining foreign sugar at our
Clewiston factory. In fact, U.S. Sugar's direc-
tors and owners as well as its independent
growers have expressed tremendous pride
and satisfaction with the Company's recent
accomplishments in spite of the extremely
challenging economic conditions and con-
tinued poor weather," Sanchez said.
"U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art sugar pro-
cessing operation has worked miracles. This
winter's prolonged freeze events could have
completely devastated smaller growers like
me. U.S. Sugar not only revised their har-
vest and production schedules to prioritize
independent Western cane growers' freeze-
damaged crops, but also shared higher re-
fined sugar margins with its growers," said
Donnie Lundy, one of the Company's 36 in-
dependent sugarcane growers.

MORSure will require that
civics education be part of
curriculum for all gradeS
Both chambers of the Florida legislature
passed a measure to include civics education
for all grade levels as part of the language
arts curriculum. House Bill (HB) 105, also
known as the "Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
Civics Education Act," now moves to the
Governor's desk for his signature.
Representative Matt Hudson, sponsor of
the bill, issued the following statement: The
future of our state and our republic depend
on our citizens understanding of the civics
process. I believe the implementation of the
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Civics Educa-
tion Act will help strengthen and preserve
our state and union," stated Representative
Matt Hudson (R-Naples), sponsor of the


bill.
House Bill 105 creates the "Justice San-
dra Day O'Connor Civics Education Act" and
adds the following requirements for civics
education:
For all grade levels beginning with the
2011-2012 school year, the HB 105 requires
the reading portion of the language arts cur-
riculum within the Sunshine State Standards
to include civics education content.
For students entering grade 6 beginning
with the 2012-2013 school year, the bill re-
quires the successful completion of a one-
semester civics education course in order
to be promoted from a school composed of
grades 6, 7, and 8.
The one-semester civics education
course is to be designated as one of the
three middle school social studies courses
currently required for promotion.
The bill now awaits the Governor's signa-
ture into law.

Clewiston, FI Tim Manning, Executive
Director of USDA's Farm Service Agency in
Florida announced today that USDA will ac-
cept late-filed applications for the Emergen-
cy Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and
Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) for losses
that took place in calendar years 2008 and
2009.
ELAP sign-up ended on Dec.10, 2009, for
2008 losses and on Feb. 1, 2010, for 2009
losses. However, because of changes to
program eligibility provisions, FSA is now
accepting late-filed applications for 2008
and 2009 livestock, honeybees, and/or farm-
raised fish losses through May 5, 2010.
"ELAP provides emergency assistance to
eligible producers of livestock, honeybees
and farm-raised fish that have losses due
to disease, adverse weather or other condi-
tions, including losses due to blizzards and
wildfires," said Manning.
According to Manning ELAP assistance
is for losses not covered under other Sup-
plemental Agricultural Disaster Assistance
programs established by the 2008 Farm Bill,
specifically the Livestock Forage Disaster
Program, the Livestock Indemnity Program
and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance
Payments Program. ELAP is being imple-
mented to fill in the gap and provide assis-
tance under other conditions determined to
be appropriate.
ELAP eligibility provisions have been
amended for both honeybee and farm-raised
fish producers. The modifications include al-
lowing honeybee and farm-raised fish pro-
ducers who did not replace their honeybees
or fish that were lost due to a natural disaster
to be eligible for ELAP payments based on
the fair market value of the honeybees or
fish that were lost.
In addition, the requirements to docu-
ment losses for honeybee producers who
suffered losses due to Colony Collapse Dis-
order (CCD) were modified to allow docu-
mentation by an independent third party for
losses in 2010 through Sept. 31, 2011. Pro-
ducers can self certify losses due to CCD for
2008 and 2009.
For more information or to apply for ELAP
and other USDA Farm Service Agency disas-
ter assistance programs, please visit your
FSA county office or www.fsa.usda.gov.

employer and lender. To file a complaint of
discrimination, write: USDA, Director, Office

The onset of warm weather in the
spring is when Florida's native crocodil-
ians start getting active, and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is urging Floridians and visi-
tors to be cautious when having fun in
and around water.
Florida is home to two native croco-
dilians the American alligator, which is
found in all 67 counties, and the Ameri-
can crocodile, which may be found in
coastal areas of the Keys, Southeast and
Southwest Florida. Both species have
shared Florida's waters with people for
centuries.
The FWC recommends keeping pets
away from the water. There are other pre-
cautionary measures people should take
to reduce potential conflicts with alliga-
tors and crocodiles, and they are available
in the "Living with Alligators" brochure
at MyFWC.com/Alligator and the "Living
with Crocodiles" brochure at MyFWC.
comn/Crocodile.
The FWC advises, if you have concerns
with an alligator or crocodile that poses a
threat to you, your pets or property, call
the FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
Alligators and crocodiles are an im-
portant part of Florida's heritage and play
a valuable role in the ecosystems where
they live. For more information on alliga-
tors and crocodiles, visit MyFWC.com/Al-
ligator.

"Water conservation is always going to
be a part of the water supply plan," said Mr.
Ritter.
These supply plans are based on a 20
year outlook and are updated every 5 years.
The plans include an adequate future water
supply, water conservation, alternative wa-
ter supplies and population growth manage-
Inent. Completion is expected in 2012.
Russell Echols, cornrission chairman,
mentioned the dernands of Lee County's
alternating requests for fresh water releases
and restriction of fresh water releases, which
leave an effect on the Lake Okeechobee wa-
tershed.
"There is no sense of fairness in that,"
said Mr. Echols
A low bidders preference ordinance was


adopted. Section 4.2 refers to local contrac-
tors and vendors; and it lists that for procure-
Inents in the amount of $50,000 or less, the
local contractor/vendor preference shall not
exceed 5 percent of the total bid, or quote, or
proposal. For procurements in the amount
of more than $50,000 the local contractor/
vendor preference shall not exceed 3 per-
cent of the total bid, or quote, or proposal.
An ordinance on RV parks and RV park
condorniniurns was updated. It includes
that non-habitable additions may not con-
tain bathrooms, kitchens or bedrooms.
Habitable additions my not have bathrooms
or kitchens. Widths of structures are also ad-
dressed.
A bid to resurface Rainey Slough was
awarded to Better Roads. Better Roads also


received a bid for paying and resurfacing
other road projects in the county.
Emergency documents for lifting the
burn ban will be on the agenda for the May
11 meeting.
The board adopted a proclamation in-
troduced by Early Learning Coalition of
Southwest Florida with headquarters in Fort
Myers. May 7 was proclaimed as Provider
Appreciation Day.
Two-thirds of 1.34 million children under
age six in Florida are in sorne form of child
care. The proclamation calls attention to the
importance of high quality child care servic-
es, and it honors providers for their dedica-
tion to children.

GLADES -- A Local Mitigation Strategy
(LMS) meeting was held April 20 by Glades
County Emergency Management in coor-
dination with Southwest Florida Regional
Planning Council (SWFRPC). The LMS team
was represented by South Florida Water
Management District, Glades County Sher-
iff's Office, City of Moore Haven, Glades
County School District, Emergency Manage-
ment, Glades County Planning and Develop-
ment and county consultants. The SWFRPC
principal planner, Dan Trescott, and Angie
Snow, GC Emergency Management director,
presented hazard mitigation statistics.
The objective of hazard mitigation plan-
ning is to lessen or eliminate fatalities and
damage done to property that may have
natural or man-made causes. County work-
ers and community members work together
to identify hazards to the area and assess
which areas are most vulnerable, and then
plan to reduce these hazards.
Examples of potential hazards can be the
immediate or cumulative affects of drought,
storms, levee breach, pestilence, or man-
made disasters. The cost of damage to prop-
erty can vary according to property values
which can fluctuate with the economy.
The most practical shelter for cost, time


management and emergency strategy was
the West Glades School in Muse. Its location
makes it less affected by storm surges from
Lake Okeechobee
The results that can happen from large
storms and a heavy wet season have region-
al and state agencies examining the earthen
levee, Herbert Hoover Dike, and the low el-
evation of land from Clewiston to Lakeport.
The section of the levee near Fisheating
Creek, and the drainage into Lake Hicpochee
are being considered into the overall plans
to lessen hazards for Glades County.
It was noted that standing water affected
Palmdale in the recent past as well as sec-
tions of U.S. 27 and S.R. 78. Angie Snow not-
ed the LMS teams's concern for water dam-
age to mobile homes considering FEMA's
narrow guidelines for assistance.
The LMS range of goals include maximiz-
ing protection of the communities' health
safety and welfare from the effects of all
hazards. They are planning the reduction of
vulnerability to public and private property.
Mitigation communication is encouraged
between agencies and county communi-
ties.
The attention and work of county com-
munities for Firewise awareness was dis-
cussed as a great asset to public safety and
wildfire prevention.

gave them specific functions and roles; as outlined
in the "book of instructions" we commonly call the
"New Testament."
When asked about rulers, Jesus pointed out that
those "who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles
lord it over them, and their high officials exercise au-
thority over them.
Not so among you. Instead, whoever wants to
become great among you must be your servant and
whoever wants to be first must be slave of all (Mark
10:42-44)." If there is any claim to being the head,
perhaps it is best sought from those who serve the
most, or who are the most at the beck and-call of
Others.
To give a short answer, I can say that we have
rg onal ofik sy un gimt sor ornatioal lfeo tsarae

won't do. The fact of the matter is that the clear de-
lineation of our leader goes back to the Founder; and
He came as a servant. ..
To cut to the chase, I usually say "This is a
Church" and explain a bit about decision-making
here. The reply is usually "Have a nice day" and we
each go on our separate ways. My "business" is un-
like other "businesses" and my work is unlike other
kinds of work.
I am blessed with those around who take their
rightful positions in their roles of leadership, direc-
tion, being servants and helping others, supporting,
volunteering, maintaining, praying because some-
how, somewhere they heard the message from the
first Servant of all. In a world full of people worried
about who is the head of an organization, who ex-


ercises authority, who makes the rules, who can and
cannot do what; it is totally refreshing to step back
daily and weekly to say "It's different around here"
-"We all have a part, we all share, we all serve in
one way or another" My place is to officiate, perhaps
as an orchestra conductor brings together a great
symphony, and to share in the making of something
great.
For me, that surpasses being the "head" or "hav
ing authority." The final retirement plan, too, is out
of this world!


Planned Parenthood official

(}HitS!

FBy Jackie Miller Evangelist
First Chitan Cur h
Watching an unborn baby die during an ultra-
sound-guided abortion changed the heart and life
of Abby Johnson, the former director of Planned
Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. Johnson, 29, resigned
from her job October 6 and has begun speaking out
against abortion and Planned Parenthood's philoso-
phy. "What I saw on the screen was a 13 week baby
fighting for its life, Johnson said on Fox New's The
O'Rielly Factor. "And I had flashes in my head of my
own daughter. I remembered having an ultra-sound
at 12 weeks with my own daughter. And I just was
thinking, 'What am I doing?' I was thinking, 'l've
never seen this before."'"
Johnson said that this was the first time she actu-
ally saw a child killed during an abortion. "Planned


Parenthood really tries to instill in their employees
and the women that are coming in for abortions that
this is just a mass of cells," she explained on The
O'Reilly Factor. "You know, don't say 'baby' in the
clinic. Don't say 'baby' to the women coming in for
an abortion. And so you begin to believe that. You
begin to believe that it's not a life."
Planned Parenthood filed a request for an injunc-
tion against Johnson, asking the court to forbid her
from speaking about the organization. A temporary
order was granted, but a judge lifted the injunction
November 11 and refused to issue a permanent one,
according to the Associated Press.
The pro-abortion group contends that Johnson
is a disgruntled ex-employee whose performance
was being tqu s ioned whe she qt, S lon.o mre

ness model has changed. And that, you know, this
prevention that they preach about maybe is not re-
ally what Planned Parenthood is all about. And that'
with the downward economy, they are really trying
to increase their abortion number, because that is
the most lucrative part of their business."
Johnson said she will continue to speak about
her recent conversion and about the lessons she has
learned. "I plan on doing some public speaking on
my change of heart and moving away from the abor-
tion industry," she told "The Eagle."
"I am just going to be spending a lot of time in
prayer and waiting for God to lead me to my next
opportunity. There are already quite a few events
planned." Now there's a REAL MOTHER for you!

Momma's Lessons and More

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In honor of mothers everywhere, of future moth-
ers and mothers past, and of those special mothers
with have no children of their own but are mothers
to children anyway, I wanted share some important
things my mother taught me.
Momma taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB
WELL DONE: "If you're going to kill each other, do it
outside. I just finished cleaning." She taught me RE-
LIGION: "You better pray that will come out of the
carpet.
And Momma introduced me to LOGIC: "Because
I aid so utht's why." More LOGIC. 'lf you fall nut of

the store with me." And more Logic still: "When that
lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running
to me."
Momma taught me STAMINA: 'You'll sit there
until all that spinach is gone." And CONTORTION-
ISM. "Will you look at that dirt on the back of your
neck?"
From Momma, I learned ANTICIPATION. "Just
wait until your father gets home." Not to mention
JUSTICE: "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they
turn out just like you!"
And of course, Momma always drilled into me,
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case
you're in an accident."
Speaking of accidents, let me share with you
some statistics I came across and the "Momma's
Logic" I applied to it.
Avoid riding in automobiles because they are re-
sponsible for 20 percent of all fatal accidents. Do not
stay home because 17 percent of all accidents occur
in the home. Avoid walking on streets or sidewalks
because 14 percent of all accidents occur to pedes-
trians. Avoid traveling by air, rail, or water because
16 percent of all accidents involve these forms of
transportation. Of the remaining 33 percent, 32 per-
cent of all deaths occur in hospitals. Above all, avoid
hospitals.
You will be pleased to learn that only.001 percent
of all deaths occur in worship services in church;
these are usually related to previous physical disor-
ders. Therefore, logic tells us that the safest place for
you to be at any given point in time is at church
Bible study is safe too. The percentage of deaths
during Bible study is even less. So, for your safety's
sake, attend church and read your Bible-it could
save your life!
Mothers, we thank God for you, for all that you
do, for the kindness you show, for the love you give,
and for the example you are. We love you with all
our hears May God bless you on your special day

somEoe w to w ns tosea ttoatheo "ac f or
organization." Usually it is from a salesperson, to tell
us about some program or sell insurance or a prod-
uct for the offices.
They usually have limited understandings about
"Church" or "organization." They're doing their job'

about referring the call to "the head of your organi-
zation."
The "organization" was established 2,000 yearS
ago in an upper room, as recorded in the Book of
Acts (Chapter 2) and the "head" has been involved in
all of the branches that have arisen ever since.
He left His work to those who would follow and
the successors to those in the upper room on that
day. Those who followed in turn called others and

The Moore Haven High School students
who have put forth an effort to educate their
parents, grandparents and state legislators
about this issue are nernbers of an extracur-
ricular club called Future Voices of America.
Their work has paid off and they were invited
to a national conference in Nashville, Ten-
nessee, April 16. This conference was held
by the National Office for School Counselor
Advocacy of the College Board (NOSCA).
MHHS students were the only teens who
gave presentations at the conference. Their
counselor, Ms. Drake, cornrented the pro-
fessionals in Nashville were quite moved by
the intellect and passion of the four present-
ers, Lindsey Swafford, junior; Warren Ward,
sophomore; Cale Rives, senior and Brantley
Woodward, junior.
"They were really what won the crowd,"
Ms. Drake said, proudly.
The young Future Voices of America
displayed their power-point demonstration
skills, speaking skills and organization skills
in front of an adult crowd of experienced
presenters.
"We were serious, but we also had fun,"
said Lindsey Swafford.
The young travelers want to thank Sher-
iff Stuart Whiddon, Glades Electric Co-op,

to receive a valuable education outside the

INS, but I was confused and didn't under-
stand why; I was only in 5th grade," said the
undocumented youth.
In 8th grade, this student was awarded
a 2-year college scholarship. The student
truthfully filled out the application as a non-
U.S. citizen and listed a legal social security
number. In 11th grade the scholarship was
revoked.
This is only one story in Glades County.
Some Moore Haven High School students
kept hearing these stories from their child-
hood friends. They were greatly concerned
that public school systerns, by federal law,
had fostered and paid for undocumented
student education; yet all the support from
family, teachers and 12 years of education
expenses appeared to be in vain.
Several local school students and their
school counselor, Crystal Drake, have re-
searched this "no path to citizenship" issue
experienced by undocumented teens from
local corniunities. They found that annual-
ly, 65,000 undocumented high school gradu-
ates are prohibited from joining the military,
attending college or seeking legal employ-

was done to the bridge in Moore Haven.
Shane Parker also reported on Airglades/
Truck Stop and Motel. The truck stop is
planned for 25 acres and may be somewhat
similar to a Flying J facility. The motel is
planned for 100 units.


Judi Kennington-Korf, Hendry County
administrator, reminded local officials of
Florida Arnendrnent 4 on the November
2010 voting ballot. It is also known as Flori-
da Hometown Democracy, and may give the
voters the power to approve or deny chang-
es to comprehensive land use plans.
Russell Echols gave a presentation to the
officials at the joint meeting on the Moore
Haven Canal Project and its park amenity
plans. He corniented Glades and Hendry
are mentioned together when cornrunity
issues are topics because, historically, there
are many family ties. Both counties under-
stand that the levee around Lake Okeecho-
bee has not enhanced tourism. It blocks
the panorama view of the big lake and its
freshwater marshes. The Moore Haven Ca-


nal Project will improve access to the lake
for tourists, hikers, wildlife viewers, families
and sport fishermen.
Wendell Taylor, Glades County inanag-
er, joined the discussion by presenting the
Curry Island Park Expansion which cornpli-
Inents the canal restoration with a proposal
of 1200 acres that will foster eco-tourisrn,
birding, scouting, hiking and farnily events.
A special perk includes the adjacent Fisheat-
ing Creek Wildlife Management Area and
Fort Center.
Shane Parker tied in these two eco-tourirn
projects with the Hendry Pathways Plans
which allows for landscaping, sidewalks
and pedestrian facilities.
