GLADES/SOUTH FLORIDA -
Florida has about 139,474 women
veterans which makes it third in
the list of states with the highest
population of women vets, ac-
cording to Veterans Affairs (VA)
in 2009.
VA began providing medical
services for women in 1988 when
they represented 4.4 percent of
all veterans. As of September
2007, women make up 7.4 per-
cent of the veteran population.
VA officials estimate that by 2020,
women will comprise almost 11
percent of military vets. The aver-
age age of women veterans is 47
years, compared to the average of


61 years for men.
The largest group of women
vets served in Operation Endur-
ing Freedom and Operation Iraqi
Freedom (OEF/OIF). According
to VA statistics, in 2008 women
represented 11 percent of OEF/
OIF veterans. Slightly more than
44 percent of these women have
enrolled in VA health care, and 66
percent are under age 30.
The Department of Veterans
Affairs will invite women veterans
and their advocates to a forum
in July to discuss the quality of
VA health care, the provision of
benefits for women, and ways to
improve access to the care and
benefits for women veterans.
"We must constantly re-eval-
uate and solicit input on our per-
formance as measured against the


needs of our women veterans,"
said Eric K. Shinseki, VA.
The one day forum will not
only help VA learn more from
women veterans who depend on
VA for care, but will also develop
tool kits for strengthening women
veteran networks through work
with local VA facilities.
The VA has undertaken major
initiatives to transform the depart-
ment to meet the unique health
care needs of women veterans
and provide the best quality care.
The agency is working to shorten
the delays for claims processing,
improve access to VA health ser-
vices for minority and rural veter-
ans, end veteran homelessness,
and ease the transition back to

Letter to the editor


Goals of Main Street
The goal of Main Street Moore Haven,
Inc. is to preserve the historic commercial
core of the City of Moore Haven through or-
ganization, by encouraging cooperation and
building leadership in the business com-
munity; promotion, by creating a positive
image for the city by promoting the down-
town as an exciting place to live, shop and
invest; design, by improving the appearance
of the city; and economic restructuring, by
strengthening and expanding the economic
base of the downtown area.
We have been working with consultants
and potential investors to site a restaurant


and hotel on the waterfront, as the anchor
tenant of a new downtown, which will fea-
ture mixed use development (commercial/
office space on the ground/residential above)
on "Main Street" and other residential and
commercial development, like a new phar-
macy, elsewhere throughout the city.
Working closely with the Glades County
Economic Development Council, Inc. our
goal is to bring new commercial and resi-
dential development to the city of Moore Ha-
ven, to create entrepreneurial opportunities
and new jobs for Glades County residents,
while at the same time preserving and pro-
moting those features that make Moore Ha-
ven unique.


Toward that end we will be unveiling
the new architectural standards and de-
sign charettes for what we think a redevel-
oped Moore Haven waterfront could be at
our annual membership meeting slated for
Wednesday, June 9 at the Glades County
Public Library at 5 p.m.
Please mark your calendar and plan to at-
tend this important meeting.
RSVP to twhirls@gladescountyedc.com.

Tracy Whirls

Why didn't I think of that?
Local welder extraordinaire Tim Davis thinks he's caught hold of a neat little design that more and more locals are
stopping him on the road to ask him about: a special truck cover. Made of the same material as a toolbox, and comple-
menting it perfectly, the improvised product seems to be taking a life of its own. Tim lost a loved one recently, and
hopes to get back to work to pass the time.

Enjoy Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail on Trails Day


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District invites the public to celebrate
National Trails Day, June 5, by visiting the
Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST).
Designated as part of the Florida National
Scenic Trail in 1993, the Lake Okeechobee
Scenic Trail is an approximately 110-mile
trail encircling Lake Okeechobee. More than
half of the trail is paved, and the remainder
consists of a two-track gravel roadway on
top of the 25-foot high Herbert Hoover Dike,
providing many scenic vistas for visitors to
enjoy while walking, hiking, rollerblading or
bicycling.
Horseback riding may also be enjoyed at
the base of Herbert Hoover Dike. Rest areas
and campsites are available along the LOST
for visitor convenience.
Access to the trail is free and may be
gained from any recreation area located
around the lake; however, visitors should


note that the LOST is closed from Port Maya-
ka South to South Bay and from South Bay
to Clewiston due to the ongoing rehabilita-
tion of Herbert Hoover Dike.
Access to the Pahokee marina will re-
main open, and so will access points to Lake
Okeechobee for localized foot traffic.
Closed portions of the trail are clearly
marked with signs and recreationists are
advised to follow posted instructions, use
caution at all times and refrain from entering
construction zones.
"One of the things our visitors enjoy the
most is observing the diverse wildlife, in-
cluding many threatened and endangered
species, that can be seen along the Lake
Okeechobee Scenic Trail," said Adam Tar-
plee, natural resources program manager.
"Among the species that call Lake
Okeechobee home are manatees and al-
ligators, which can be observed cruising


the lake bed and rim
canals. Bald eagles,
wood storks, snail and
swallow-tailed kites, ca-
racaras, American kes-
trels, anhinga and peli-
cans can be observed in
flight or nesting, and rac-
coons, bobcats, gopher
tortoises, Eastern Indigo
snakes, deer and turkey
can all be spotted in the
vast transitional wet-
lands along the lake's
shoreline."

LOST is available at Okeechobee Scenic Trail.

Shoreline fishing license, no charge to locals


The shoreline fishing license for Florida
residents to catch saltwater fish from shore
or a structure affixed to shore cost $9 last
year, but this year, it's free beginning July 1.
The Florida Legislature repealed the
shoreline license fee during the past session.
However, legislators retained the license re-
quirement to prevent a more-costly federal
registration fee from taking effect in Florida.
Resident anglers who obtain the shore-


i R.TL\A r


line license over the phone or Internet still
will have to pay a convenience fee to the
vendor.
The convenience fee is $2.31 for Internet
sales at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com or $3.33
for phone sales at 888-FISH FLORIDA (888-
347-4356).
Only Florida residents qualify for a no-
cost shoreline license, and the license does
not cover fishing from a boat or from land or


a structure accessible only by boat.
That requires a regular saltwater fishing
license: $17 for residents; for nonresidents
the cost is $17 for three days, $30 for seven
days or $47 per year.
There are some exemptions for license
requirements.
More information is available at MyFWC.

Florida-Friendly Landscaping Projects teach Water Conservation


Submitted photo
The butterfly garden in downtown
Okeechobee, shown at left, and the en-
trance to the Okeechobee High School
Agriculture Complex, below, are two
local examples of Florida-Friendly

By Missie Barletto, South Florida
Water Management District
The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has enjoyed ongoing
partnerships with the Okeechobee County
School District and the Okeechobee County
Extension Office to share principles of water
conservation, water quality and agricultural
education with local adults and students.
Most recently, Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ing projects were installed at the Okeecho-
bee High School (OHS) Agriculture Complex
and in Flagler Park in downtown Okeecho-
bee. At area elementary schools, students
learned principles of sustainable gardening
in small places through a project named


"Wall of Plants."
The OHS project, funded by a $3,000
grant from the SFWMD, has raised student
awareness of water conservation principles
while bringing environmental benefits to the
landscape.
In downtown Okeechobee, a butterfly
garden now provides a restful spot to sit
and enjoy the day while watching butter-
flies enjoy the Florida-Friendly Landscaping.
Also made possible with grants from the SF-
WMD, the butterfly garden was sponsored
by Okeechobee Main Street and Waste
Management. It was designed and planted
by Okeechobee Master Gardeners and will
continue to be maintained by the Master
Gardeners and their 4-H Club friends.
"Florida-Friendly Landscaping" means
quality landscapes that conserve water,
protect the environment, are adaptable to
local conditions and are drought tolerant.
This type of landscaping includes planting
the right plant in the right place, efficient
watering, appropriate fertilization, mulch-
ing, attraction of wildlife, responsible man-
agement of yard pests, recycling yard waste,
reduction of stormwater runoff and water-
front protection. Additional components in-
clude practices such as landscape planning
and design, soils analysis, appropriate use of
solid waste compost, minimizing the use of
irrigation and proper maintenance.
In 2009, the Florida Legislature passed
a statute regarding water conservation and
Florida-Friendly Landscaping in 2009. This
statute states that Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ingTM contributes to the conservation, pro-
tection and restoration of water in an effort

to meet the water needs of the state of Flor-
ida in a manner that will supply adequate
and dependable supplies of water where
needed. Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM
is an essential part of water conservation
and water quality protection and restoration
planning.
The newly completed construction at
the OHS Agriculture Complex afforded a
perfect opportunity to bring attention to this
important state effort. Eucalyptus mulch do-

Industries of Central Florida Inc. donated a
locally quarried, indigenous material known
as Callida Stone for natural walls and plant
borders. Rain barrels were added to an exist-
ing gutter and downspout system at the Ag-
riculture classroom building to collect water
for irrigating the landscape. High school ag-
riculture students, as well as staff from the
schools and the SFWMD, provided the labor
for the plant installation.
The project provides a real-life example
to Okeechobee County students and the
community at large that native plants are at-

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


June 10, 2010





June 10, 2010 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 7


In recent years, the greatest challenge facing the state legislature has been the budget. Indeed, the only constitutional requirement during each year's legislative session (which runs from March to May) is
to pass a balanced budget. That requirement was met, although the legislature relied on federal stimulus dollars and trust fund raids to do it. The $70 billion state budget included a $111 million increase
in funding to K-12 education, which comes out to a small increase of $1.22 per-student. After years of school funding cuts, education spending is still well below 2006-2007 levels.

The legislature balanced the budget partly on a $506.9 million raid from state trust funds, especially from the affordable housing and transportation trust funds. Some of these trust fund raids have since
been spared because of the Governor's recent vetoes -- although how the budget gap will now be filled is still an open question -- and the impact of these raids on existing projects is unknown. I opposed
these trust fund raids as a breach of contract between politicians and taxpayers who are promised that their taxes and user fees will go into a specific fund, only to see them diverted to
other parts of the budget.

On a more positive note, I am proud that several of my bills from this session were enacted into law. Among them:

SB 502 Special Investigators This bill allows prosecutors the flexibility to use special investigators from other agencies to help root out crime in our communities. Especially important in tough budget
times, this bill will allow State Attorneys to guide and coordinate important investigative matters without having to bear the financial burden of employing the investigators full-time on a
permanent basis.

SB 814 Lifeline This bill allows more cell phone companies to add Lifeline services. Lifeline is a public assistance program that reduces phone bills for people at
or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

SB 870 Statutes of Limitation This important legislation will help keep child molesters off our streets by removing the statute of limitations for sex crimes against children under the age of 16. Current
law forces children who have been victimized to report these crimes within 3 years after they turn 18. Studies have shown that it can take 15 years (and often longer) for victims to come forward,
as they are often silenced into shame and humiliation.

SB 874 Substantial Assistance This bill allows prosecutors broader authority to ask a court for a reduced sentence for a cooperating defendant. This will help our State Attorneys to
successfully prosecute the ring-leaders and "big fish" who direct major crimes yet escape punishment.

SB 1058 School Personnel This bill protects bus drivers and other educational personnel from dangerous students by notifying them when a student is charged with a felony. This is vital information for
any professional who supervises children and will protect fellow students as well.

SB 1284 Sex Offenders This bill creates 300 feet "safety zones" to keep sex offenders and predators away from places where children congregate. Sex offenders will also be restricted from
wearing certain holiday costumes and giving out candy on Halloween.

SB 1980 Ethics -This was the only ethics bill to pass in the legislative session. This allows counties to toughen the penalties for public corruption at the local level.

I'm also pleased to have co-sponsored a successful bill to help keep "pill mills" out of our communities. We have lost too many young people from prescription drug overdoses, and this bill will ensure that
Florida will no longer be the oxycodone supplier for the rest of the country.

Finally, the most contentious bill this session was Senate Bill 6. After receiving an overwhelming amount of phone calls and e-mails, Governor Crist made the right decision and vetoed
the bill. I was outspoken in my opposition to this bill, and you can watch my Senate floor speech at http://www.youtube.com/davearonberg.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve you in the Florida Senate. If my staff or I can ever be of assistance to you, please call, write or e-mail us...or drop by to say hello!

and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."


Christian in a non-Christian
World
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Last year, our church purchased gift cards
for our graduating high school seniors, cus-
tomized with a picture of our church on the
card. They made nice connectional gifts to
our graduates from their church family.
Imagine my surprise this year when I sub-
mitted a picture of our church sign for the
cards and it was rejected as unsuitable be-
cause: "We can't accept religious symbols."
Imagine further surprise when I discovered I
could have a Star of David or a menorah put
on my card. When I asked the representa-
tive about such things, she replied that those
were not considered religious symbols. I
wonder if our Jewish brothers and sisters
know.
I must confess a myriad of emotions. I
struggled with feelings of discrimination,
feelings of anger and righteousness, and
thoughts of vigilante justice and retaliation.
What was I to do? I envisioned boycotts and
card cutting. I fired off letters of concern and
protest to company administrators.
Upon further reflection, I didn't know
whether I should have more concern over
that fact that our card picture was turned
down because our church sign was seen as
a religious symbol or that the picture of our
church wasn't seen as a religious symbol
when it was approved last year.
Because we are in the world, we have
temptation to get caught up in being of the
world and adopting worldly ways. There
is an old saying that a ship in the sea is no
problem, but when you get the sea into the
ship you are in trouble. A Christian living in
the world is one thing, but when the world
gets into the Christian that is a different mat-
ter altogether.
God has not set us to live our lives in iso-
lation or privacy. By divine appointment we
are members of a home, of a community,


and of a nation. To live as God intended us
to live we must fulfill our obligations in each
of these areas. As Christians, we always have
to stay on top of this part of our walk with
the Lord.
Some shut their doors to the darkness
around them. Others do formal protest
marches or boycotts. God has called me to
stand as a Christian in a non-Christian world.
I light the night for Christ on Halloween, pro-
claim the reason for the season at Christmas,
and have resurrection parties at Easter.
With these cards, I was lead to creatively
witness in the situation. I copied a picture
drawn for my by a friend featuring "Godly"
hands clasped in prayer around a baby. I in-
cluded a reference to Jeremiah 29:11: "For I
know the plans I have for you," declares the
Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm
you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."
Following God's direction, the final result
was more spiritual and more meaningful
than any picture of our church sign.

Playing "God"; Is it our abili-
ties or our purposes?
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A news item recently told about the cre-
ation of life in a laboratory. Apparently, sci-
entists have found a computer code, four
basic elements and the way of replacing
DNA in a cell to cause a cell to come to life
and multiply. They claim life has been cre-
ated and people now wonder if this is going
to create a new world of monsters, whether
we will finally be able to cure diseases that
now are beyond our capacities to cure, open
new doors ... .for better or for worse.
I recalled an older story about the man
who confronted God and said "God, I can
create life. Watch this!" The man stooped
over and picked up a handful of dirt and be-
gan to shuffle it about. God intervened and


said 'Ah Ah Ah! Get your own dirt!" We have
come to a place when computers do calcu-
lations beyond our imagination and robots
do surgery; when parents are working to
"engineer" the kinds of children they want,
when we have cloned animals to produce
replicas of their desired parents.
Claiming to create life is another step
along the way. The real question is "On the
way to where?" Nations can create atomic
weapons but treaties limit their production;
recognizing their potential for destruction
is too great. Gas warfare is seen as "hitting
below the belt" even in the worst of wars,
and banned by most of the civilized world.
Technologies are there, for good or evil, but
it takes something beyond the ability to cre-
ate or combine to decide whether humanity
really benefits from what we potentially can
do. In many ways, we can "play God" but
that doesn't make us gods.
Thousands of years ago, the Psalmist
put it succinctly; "What is man that you are
mindful of him or the son of man that you
care for him? You made him a little lower
than the heavenly beings and crowned him
with glory and honor, You made him ruler
over the works of your hands, you put every-
thing under his feet (Psalm 8; vss 4-6)" The
difference is not in what humanity can do,
but how what is done serves humanity and,
ultimately, God's purpose.
When we're playing god, the real need
is to see what we're doing and measure it
according to God's purposes for us. That
doesn't have to apply only to "modern" de-
velopments; it applies to all of us in our day-
to-day activities too. A mechanic, a teacher,
a parent, a delivery person all can use their
tasks in life to help or hurt others; each is
some way is capable of "playing god."
We all have in some way, no matter how
small it may seem, the power to "play god"
in our relationships with one another and in
the things we are called to do in this life. Our
call, big and small, is to recognize it; and do
the best we can to make this world a truly
"Godly" place.

Ready for marriage?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
"There they go.. Will they be happy?
Horns blowing, tin cans rattling, rice all over
the place, the newlyweds are "off in a cloud
of dust" on their honeymoon. This scene is
repeated a thousand times over during the
month of June. It's an exciting time as friends
stand and talk after the wedding. "Didn't she
look radiant!" "Isn't he good looking!" Small
talk, pleasant, but...the question that haunts
parents and friends is, "Will they be happy
together?"
Let's face it. Nobody can predict marriage
success with certainty, however, there are
definite, tangible factors which may mean
success or failure in marriage. Here are just
three questions that need to be asked by
couples considering marriage.
1.Did they grow up in a happy home?
Happiness in childhood helps to create the
kind of personality that can be happy and
successful in marriage. A youngster who has
grown up in an unhappy home may know
what he doesn't want, but he has no clear
concept, drawn by experience, for what he


does want in his own marriage.
2.Do they really know each other? Court-
ship is important because it gives time to
grow and mature. Courtship is actually a
time of innocent deception, when we are
always careful to make the best possible
impression. How does this person react to
criticism, hardship, disappointment? What
is his attitude toward Christ, other races, al-
cohol, drugs and sex. How does he handle
her moods, temper? What friends are im-
portant. These impressions need the test of
time--more than six dates in the moonlight.
3.Are they physically and emotionally
mature? Just because you are physically
mature.. and just because you may be in
love, does not mean that you are ready to
put aside boisterous freedom and irrespon-
sibility of adolescence. This is what we call
maturity. Physical maturity may be simple
enough to evaluate, but emotional maturity
if often tangible and elusive: ability to differ
without anger--not subject to moodiness or
tantrums--ability to accept advice and make
decisions--willingness to work and earn an
income--able to carry reasonable tension
without giving up--careful with money--abil-
ity to love unselfishly--devoted to parents but
not dependent upon them.
There are many other questions that
couples need to ask before getting married.
But these three are enough to demonstrate
the complexities of marriage. Every couple
considering marriage needs to sit down
with a counsellor that they both respect and
frankly face the issues that will come up in
their marriage.

Glades County Commissioners meet in Moore Haven


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
A lease agreement for Curry Island near
Lakeport, a new schedule of tipping fees
for the Glades County landfill and various
highway projects proposed to the Florida
Department of Transportation highlighted
the agenda when the Glades County Board
of County Commissioners met Tuesday in
Moore Haven.
Glades Commissioners considered a
land lease for 352 acres at Curry Island. The
lease would last until 2060. The state plans
to build bike paths in the next two months
on property now leased by the County. The
County plans some improvements like pic-
nic tables, camp sites and gazebos. They
have also applied for grants to help pay for
the improvements.
Commission Chairman Russell Echols
said the public wilderness park for passive
recreational purposes could be a problem.
He said he supported hunting and the use
of off road type vehicles on this property.
"They have normally and customarily done
this in the past. I can't support and will not
support (a ban on these vehicles)."


Echols said there are locations in the
park where motorized vehicles should be
allowed.
Commissioner Paul Beck said certain
motorized vehicles should be allowed like
ATV's and swamp buggies. "From time to
time this could be renegotiated. Why don't
we do something that is satisfactory to our
County. What one would consider passive,
some one else wouldn't. We need the hunt-
ers."
He suggested that hunting be allowed on
certain days of the year at Curry Island. He
noted the combination of uses would serve
more people and with certain rules and reg-
ulations, could be compatible.
Charles Moorehead of Plantation said
he has visited Curry Island for many years.
He said he supports the concept of Glades
County taking over this property. He said the
proposed lease language would be a death
sentence for off road vehicles.
Jim Simon of Moore Haven objected to
the ban on off road vehicles. He explained
he is a hunter and air boat user and has used
the area since the late 1970s. "I'd hate for
future generations not to have the opportu-


nities that I had."
Cannon Ely of Lakeport said he is strong-
ly in support of off road vehicles at Curry
Island. He said the property is extensively
used by air boaters and 4-wheelers.
Commissioner Echols said the land is
owned by 16 counties and he supports the
use of the property by many user groups.
Missy Barletto of SFWMD said nego-
tiations could continue before the lease is
signed. The Commission directed staff to
continue negotiations on this lease.
Lakeport could see some road improve-
ments in the next fewyears. The Department
of Transportation could resurface 2.3 miles
of County Road 721 or Loop Road through
Lakeport. Another plan would resurface 2.1
miles of County Route 74 from State Road 78
north. Another project would resurface 1.4
miles at the Harney Pond Recreation Area.
Superintendent of the Road Department
Avant Brown said this was just a proposed
list of projects. He said the state has institut-
ed new grant opportunities for small coun-
ties. The Commission endorsed the list of
projects and sent it on to Tallahassee.
County Manager Wendell Taylor urged


commissioners to set new tipping fees at
the landfill by the end of July. A study on
tipping fees was presented to the board in
April. The consultant proposed a fee of $77
per ton. Today the tipping fee is $28.43 per
ton. In 2011 Waste Management will begin
hauling trash at $40 per ton to Okeechobee's
landfill. Taylor said the County must be pre-
pared to balance this budget.
The Commission deadlocked on a selec-
tion of an auditor. At issue was a proposal
from McGladrey and Pullen, LLP. The pro-
posal from the firm did not reach the County
offices until 45 minutes after the deadline.
Commissioners Butch Jones and Donna
Storter Long said they felt the proposal
should be considered. Chairman Echols
and Commissioner Beck said the deadline
was 3 pm and the Commission should en-
force their policies. After a brief discussion
the matter was tabled until their meeting on
June 28th.
County Commissioners scheduled a June
28 vote on a proposed lease and manage-
ment agreement with Glades County Youth
Livestock for property near Washington
Park.

Glades County Tobacco Free Partnership: All tobacco products are addictive


The Glades County Tobacco
Free Partnership meets
June 17

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES -- The Glades County Tobacco
Free Partnership will meet June 17 at 3 p.m.
in the library at Moore Haven High School.
One goal of the group is to educate youth
on the debilitating health hazards of tobacco
use.
According the the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, all tobacco
products including flavored products are
addictive and carry serious health risks. An
estimated 443,000 Americans die prema-
turely each year due to smoking and expo-
sure to second hand smoke. More deaths
are caused each year by tobacco use than
by all deaths from HIV, illegal drug use, alco-
hol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides and


murders combined.
Cigarette smoking causes many types of
cancer as well as heart disease and chronic
lung diseases. Smokeless tobacco prod-
ucts cause gum disease and cancers of the
mouth.
Currently, the sale of cigarettes contain-
ing certain flavors other than menthol are il-
legal as of 2009. Fifty three percent of youth
smokers between the ages of 13 and 18
have heard of flavored cigarettes and report
an interest in trying them. They thought the
flavored tobacco would taste better than
regular cigarettes.
According to the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services, a memo from a
tobacco industry company instructed work-
ers to "make a cigarette which is obviously
youth oriented. This could involve cigarette
name, blend, flavor and marketing tech-
nique, for example, a flavor which would
be candy-like but give the satisfaction of a
cigarette".
Sarah Litchy is the tobacco prevention
specialist in Glades County. She can be con-
tacted at the Glades County Health Depart-


INi/Nena uoian
A public service announcement on a billboard along US 27 in Glades County
discourages the use of smokeless tobacco.

Local student selected to participate

in National Leadership Program


Zachary Click, a junior at Moore Haven
Jr/Sr High School in 2009-2010, has been
selected to participate in the Economics for
Leaders program being conducted at Eck-
erd College, St. Petersburg from June 20-27,
2010. Zachary is one of 32 students from
around the country who is honored by be-
ing accepted into the Foundation
for Teaching Economics' St. Petersburg
Economics for Leaders program. All of the
students have been selected because they
have demonstrated excellent leadership po-
tential.


During the week-long Economics for
Leaders program, students attain an under-
standing of economic reasoning principles
and how to employ these concepts for suc-
cessful and effective leadership. Additionally,
participants achieve a heightened awareness
of the impact their decisions have on others
and the responsibility that awareness impos-
es. Economics for Leaders is an unparalleled
learning and growing opportunity. Students
who have attended Economics for Leaders
programs in prior years have called it "the
experience of a lifetime."

South Florida Water Management District
Notice of Agency Action
The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD or District) gives
notice of its Agency Action for the following Water Use Permit.
Permit 26-00137-W, issued on March 15, 2010 and Corrected Permit is-
sued on May 17, 2010, to Clewiston Drainage District (P. 0. Box 969, Belle
Glade, Florida 33430) pursuant to application 090114-10 for the continua-
tion of an existing use of surface water from the SFWMD Canal (C-21) for
diversion and impoundment and agricultural irrigation use serving 1144
acres with an annual allocation of 2091.41 million gallons and a total maxi-
mum monthly allocation of 257.9435 mllon gallons. The project is in
Hendry County in S15-17/T43S/R34E and S8-10/T43S/R34E, southwest of
Lake Okeechobee, west of the Industrial Canal and east of Sugarland Canal
3. The permit is subject to 22 limiting conditions. The use is reasonable-
beneficia will not interfere with any presently existing legal use of water
and is consistent with the public interest.
The above Permit and Staff Report, including limiting conditions to provide
reasonable assurances that the projects meet SFWMD statutes and rules
can be obtained by contacting Elizabeth Veguilla, Deputy Clerk, during nor-
mal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except
legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or by
telephone at (561) 686-8800 extension 6739.
The Districts agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ing a pebtion. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District's permit-
ting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The pebtion must
contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the
Office of the Clerk at the SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road,
West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Pursuant to Rule 28-106.104 Fla. Admin. Code,
any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00 a.m. on the
next regular business day. Filings by e-mail will not be accepted. A copy of
the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days
of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, whichever
first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsecton 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the time of filing.
A pebtion that disputes the material facts on which the District's action is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
min. Code, including:
(1) Identification of the action being contested, including the permit num-
ber, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD identifica-
tion number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner and pet-
tioner's representative, if any.
(3) An explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be af-
fected by the agency determination.
(4) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate.
(6) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modifiatbon of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends re-
uire reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.
(8) If disputed issues of material fact exist, the statement must also include
an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or state
utes.
(9) A statement of the relief sought by the pettioner, stating precisely the
action the petitoner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the District's
action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise
shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule
28-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means
that the District's final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla.
SFWMD is not proposing mediation for these agency actions under Secton
120.573. Fla. Stat. at this time.

iN I/Jose Zaragoza

The Real Estate cost
Colonel Alfred A. Pantano, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
Jacksonville District, hinted at the possibility that a thorough solution for the
ailing levee around Lake Okeechobee, may be to acquire lands outside of the
rim, which will very likely include personal property. At meetings held earlier
this year around the lake, he was unable to present a final plan for which
properties might be affected, and by how much.

(DUIT) may be extremely dangerous.
Gloria Seay, FDOT LaBelle, reported on
road work projects and maintenance that
will affect roads within Glades County and
roadways connecting to neighboring coun-
ties.
Crews will be painting lines along U.S.
27 from Hendry County to the Highlands
County line; along S.R. 78 west from S.R. 29
to U.S. 27; along S.R. 78 east from U.S. 27 to
the Kissimmee River; and along S.R. 29 from
the Hendry County line to U.S. 27. No lane
closures are anticipated, but caution and
a slower pace are expected. This is within
Glades County.
Maintenance crews on S.R. 78/Ortona
Road from Dead Man's Branch to Cypress
Branch will replace pipe and clean ditches.
The Monday through Thursday project will
occur for one month. Flagmen assisting with
lane closures can be expected. This is locat-
ed in Glades County.
Construction crews along C.R. 720 in
eastern Glades County will install signs and
erosion control in order to prepare for resur-
facing and guard rail work. This will be done
from the Hendry County line to north of the
Glades/Hendry Counties line. Drivers should
use extra caution when traveling this area.
The Kissimmee River Bridge on S.R. 78
at the Glades/Okeechobee Counties line will
be undergoing deck repair, Monday through
Friday from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Motorists can
expect one lane open for two-way traffic as-
sisted by flagmen.
A major construction project will affect
Glades County commuters going through
Hendry County along S.R. 80 From Clark
Street to Birchwood Parkway. This project
is widening the roadway from two to four-
lanes. Motorists should expect intermittent
lane closures to allow vehicles and equip-
ment to enter and exit the work area. The
contractor plans to shift traffic on Colling-
swood Parkway to the east the week of Mon-
day, June 7; weather permitting.
Forrey Drive will also have daytime
road closures the week of Monday, June 7;
weather permitting, so crews can complete
the new S.R. 80 mainline roadway. Traffic
will be detoured to Clark Street to the west
of Forrey Drive during working hours and
the road will be re-opened at the end of the
day. Please be aware of slow moving traffic
and possible delays.
A major bridge rehabilitation project in
LaBelle, Hendry County, will affect Glades
County commuters. The S.R. 29/LaBelle
drawbridge work begins on Tuesday, June
1 and is estimated for completion in early
2011. Crews will be making electrical, me-
chanical, and structural repairs to the bridge.
This rehabilitation project will extend the
service life of the bridge 15 to 20 years with
continued routine maintenance.
According to FDOT officials, during June
the bridge work activity is not expected to
affect traffic. Variable message boards in
Glades and Hendry Counties will alert driv-
ers to bridge closures. From July 5 to August
8, the bridge will be closed 7 days a week/24


hours a day to all traffic. From August through
project completion, motorists should expect
some nighttime/overnight bridge closures
from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Local traffic, with the exception of heavy
trucks and other heavy vehicles, may use
the Ft. Denaud Bridge when the S.R. 29
drawbridge is closed. According to FDOT,
motorists are advised the Ft. Denaud Bridge
has a 5-ton weight restriction, which will be
strictly enforced.
Nearby in Lee County, the Alva Bridge
is also under construction and is weight re-
stricted at 30 tons. Cars are permitted, but no
through truck traffic is permitted at this loca-
tion. The detour route during S.R. 29 bridge
closures is S.R. 78 and S.R. 80 (east/west)
and S.R. 29 and U.S. 27 (north/south).
The members of CTST note that meet-
ings for July and August have been can-
celled. Traffic meetings will resume on the
first Thursday of September at 10 a.m. in the
Glades County Public Library on Riverside
Drive. For more information on texting while
driving go to http://distraction.gov

and from Fisheating Creek Outpost in Palm-
dale. Completed registration form, packets
and fees are due no later than Wednesday,
June 23.
Tycee Prevatt of Arcadia is the new ex-
tension agent, who was introduced at the
4-H banquet. Ms. Prevatt mentioned she is
looking forward to working with the youth
of Glades County.
"Stop by the office and say hello," she
said.
A summer sewing camp, ages 8-18, will
be offered at the extension office in Moore
Haven. The craft skill will be guided by Jo
Randolph, leader of Lakeport's Cracker 4-H
Club. The dates for sewing craft will be July
12, July 26, August 2, August 9 and August
16 with the hours of 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Sign
up at the extension office.
Ms. Randolph mentioned students will
learn hand sewing, machine sewing, and ba-
sic stitching with seams and buttons. Craft-


ers may choose a garment project. She has
plenty of scrap materials; however, a larger
project may require the student to bring his
or her own material.
Ms. Randolph emphasizes this camp is
open to boys as well as girls, because sew-
ing craft is a survival skill. For example, a
combat soldier may need to sew buttons or
patches onto a uniform while deployed.
Camp Cloverleaf at Lake Francis, Lake
Placid, will be open to 4-H and non 4-H stu-
dents ages 8-13. The cost is $195 and takes
place July 19-23. Registration applications
are at the extension office and are due by
Thursday, July 8. Cloverleaf campers pro-
vide their own transportation.
Glades County 4-H is recruiting camp
counselors, ages 14-18, for Camp Clover-
leaf. Applications are available at the exten-
sion office. Applications are due by 5 p.m.
on June 30. A counselor training day is set
for July 9.
The 3rd Annual Youth Field Day in Ona,
Florida has a focus on beef cattle, and will
be held June 29. Registration is due by June
18.


The Glades County Agriculture Exten-
sion Office and 4-H agent can be located at
the Doyle Conner Building along U.S. 27 in
Moore Haven. Tycee Prevatt can be contact-
ed at 863-946-0244. The mailing address is


P.O. Box 549, Moore Haven, FL 33471. Also,
Glades County 4-H needs unused fishing
poles, tackle supplies, and tackle boxes.

civilian life.
Health care improvements include
comprehensive primary care and special-
ized medical care at every VA medical cen-
ter, enhanced mental health care specifically
for women veterans, staffing every VA medi-
cal center with a women veterans program
manager, a mini-residency on women's
health for primary care physicians, and a
multi-faceted research program on wom-
en's health care.
The Department's 2011 budget pro-
vides $217.6 million to meet the gender-spe-
cific health care needs of women veterans,
an increase of $18.6 million over the 2010
level. VA's 2011 budget proposal will enable
the establishment of a peer call center and
social networking site for women combat


veterans. This call center would be open 24
hours a day, seven days a week. The edu-
cation and empowerment forum will focus
on the 1.8 million women veterans in the
United States.
For a detailed list of south Florida ser-
vices for veterans of Operation Enduring
Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, go

For local information contact Jim Her-
rington with the Glades County Veterans
Service Office at 863-946-1313.
