Moore Haven selects new coach


wmNfi= o mA


INI/Charles Murphy
Maurice Belser recently accepted the coaching position for the Moore Haven Ter-
rier football team.


New coach Belser confident
that Moore Haven kids can
be successful
By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
A former member of the 1992 National
Championship team at the University of Ala-
bama was recently named the head coach of


the Moore Haven Terrier football team.
Maurice Belser accepted the job in June
and was on the job soon afterward. He said
he is very excited to get started and bring the
Terrier program back to winning ways.
"I like the environment here and I think
a small community excites me because it
reminds me of when I was in high school.
Everybody in this town is a Terrier. Football
dominates at the small town level and Friday
night, everyone will roll up the sidewalk and


come out and watch us play," he noted.
Belser said he said feels Moore Haven has
the talent to be successful. He said the kids
are respectful and open to the discipline they
need to take advantage of their athleticism.
"They are open and willing to listen and have
done what I've asked of them. There are a lot
of hungry people in this community that want
to see these guys be successful."
Belser said he will demand that his players
be good young men. He describes himself as
a hungry Christian who wants to have a great
relationship with God. He vowed to be a good
role model for his players. "My God is a war-
rior and a fighter. I want hard work, and play-
ers that are disciplined, respectful, humble
and kind. My message is you can have any-
thing you want if you work hard for it and you
give God the glory for it."
Belser said he has had an average of 35
players show up for summer time condition-
ing programs this summer. He said there are
also a number of new kids who have never
played before. He said there is enough talent
there to have one way players, a change from
the past.
"I'm here to work and I want everyone to
come out and support the kids. I will be the
steward of this program for as long as God

Higher garbage bills for Glades residents?


County studies and moves
forward with increase in
landfill tipping fee
By Charles M. Murphy
INI/Florida
Glades County approved an over 33 percent
increase in tipping fees at the landfill when
they held their regular meeting on Tuesday at
the Court House in Moore Haven.
The move will likely mean higher garbage
bills for Glades County residents this year.
County Manager Wendell Taylor said the


landfill has lost money in the past few years.
The current tipping fee is $50 per ton. Taylor
said he wanted to come up with a tonnage fig-
ure that will pay for all of the operations that
are going on out there.
On April 4, 2011 Waste Management will
charge Glades County $40 per ton to haul
solid waste from the transfer station in Ortona
to the landfill in Okeechobee. The current tip-
ping fee is $28.43 per ton for that service.
Taylor hired an engineer to conduct a study
to look at the costs, schedules and payments
for the landfill and the engineer suggested a
$77 per ton tipping fee.
Mr. Taylor said this tipping fee ought to be


able to cover the landfill costs for at least two
years.
The County will spend $27,500 for a
leachate treatment plant in the 2010-2011 bud-
get. They have $93,500 in long term care costs.
They also received $30,000 in state grants and
received $10,000 from their recycling program.
The county estimates it will receive 7,000 tons
of solid waste during the 2010-2011 budget
year.
Taylor said this tipping fee will play a major
role in the County budget for 2010-2011.
Commissioner Butch Jones made the mo-
tion to increase the tipping fee at the landfill.

Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the com-
munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

Water bills?
Just a question for Lakeport residents.
Have you ever noticed that you get a bill
every month however they don't read the
meter? I am waiting for a call back from
Lakeport water with their excuse. I know
for a fact that they have not read the meter
because the grass has grown over the top of
the meter. I mow once a week and it is never
disturbed. Whatever the excuse, it is not ac-


ceptable. Charge me for what I use not what
you think I should pay.
I believe the Lakeport Water Associa-
tion held their annual membership meeting
last Saturday. Did you go and ask them if they
are reading all of the meters every month? Is
there any soil on top of your meter box for
the grass to attach its roots? If not, the grass
probably will move with the lid and may not
be noticeable. Perhaps the water association
has the type of meters that all they have to
do is to point a reader toward the box and
the reading is received by the reader. If it re-
ally bothers you, find out when the meters
are to be read, then sit, wait and watch to
see if they actually read the meters. You may
want to do this from an obscure position
since if they see you, then they certainly will
read your meter. There are also a number of
trips you can place on the lid to notify you
that it has been opened.


JJ Wiggins
It seems to me that there has been alot
going on at JJ Wiggins but for some reason
it doesn't involve the children of Glades
County. Isn't that the reason that building
was built? I would like to know why it is
not open in the afternoons for the children
to enjoy? Oh wait, it could be that there is
no room for the children to play anymore.
There is a permanent stage built on the bas-
ketball/volleyball court. There are also class-
rooms for the church that have invaded JJ
Wiggins Youth Center.
All I can say is "Shame on YOU!" And
don't try and make it sound like you are just
borrowing the facilities on Sundays, because
if you were just borrowing, then it would be
returned to a youth center during the week.
The classrooms would come down and the
stage would be gone! Where are the basket-
ball hoops? They have been taken down.

Local church's roof damaged by lightning

Screen grab/Google maps
Community United Methodist in Lake Harbor was the most recent victim of a lightning strike last week.


Noise startles pastor, but no
significant report of damage
at Lake Harbor church

By Toni Joseph
INI Florida
The Community Methodist Church in
Lake Harbor, located at 29 West Corkscrew
Blvd., was hit by lightning around lunch time
during a thunderstorm this past Wednes-
day.


"I was sitting at my desk at home, listen-
ing to the roar of thunder," said Pastor R.
Rod Ruby, who lives next door to the church,
"and saw this huge ball of fire leap onto the
roof of the church. I'm not easily spooked,
but that bolt of lightning and roaring thunder
shook me to my very bones. We never lost
electricity, but our phones did go out for a
while."
When the storm was over, Pastor Rod in-
spected the church.
The lightning had split the ceiling as
evidenced by wood that had fallen in the
church aisle; he also found that the air con-


ditioner cover had been "relocated" to the
front of the church, as well as an electrical
outlet "hanging by a wire."
"We were very lucky. Even with part
of the roof on the floor," said Pastor Rod,
"we've not detected water damage yet."
The Lake Harbor Community Methodist
Church is a small congregation with about
35 active members.
There was no air conditioning in the
church on Sunday, so the services were held
in their fellowship hall, which is adjacent to
the church.

Corps continues to adjust Lake 0 releases


Water levels watched to
maintain optimum capacity
In accordance with the 2008 Lake
Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (2008
LORS), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District, started adjusting water
releases from Lake Okeechobee on Sunday,
July 11.
The 12-day release has a target flow to
the St. Lucie Estuary, measured at St. Lucie
Lock and Dam (S-80), of 1,800 cubic feet per
second (cfs).
The new target flow to the Caloosa-
hatchee Estuary is 4,000 cfs.
Flows to the west will be measured at the
Moore Haven Lock and Dam (S-77), which is
located east of the previous measuring point,
the WP Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79).


The releases will be made
in pulses that resemble the
pattern of runoff resulting
from a natural rainfall event.
"Over the past 10 days, we
delivered reduced releases
to the St. Lucie and Caloo-
sahatchee estuaries 200 cfs
and 450 cfs, respectively, and
according to the 2008 LORS,"
said Lt. Col. Michael Kinard,
Jacksonville District Deputy
for South Florida.
"The reduced flows were
due to improved evapora-
tion/transpiration during the
month of June, dryer tributary conditions,
and predictions of less rainfall, even though
water levels in Lake Okeechobee remained
approximately a foot and a half above the


preferred level.
Recent rainfall
over the lake and
surrounding basins,
however, has raised
the lake level almost
six inches in one
week. The forecast is
for increased precipi
station.
These changes
have prompted us to
increase the releases
again to protect the
Herbert Hoover Dike,
free-up capacity for
more rain and potential tropical storms, and
to keep from having to make larger releases
later."
The Corps strives to maintain the lake be-


tween 12.5 and 15.5 NGVD. Normally, at the
beginning of the wet season, the lake level is
on a downward trend toward the lower end
of the management range.
This provides capacity in the lake for pre-
cipitation and basin runoff expected during
the wet season. System conditions are close-
ly monitored.
At this time, conditions are wet through-
out most of south Florida, and there is no
significant storage capacity available in other
area of the regional system.
For more information on water level and
flows data for Lake Okeechobee and the
Central and Southern Florida Project, visit
the Corps' water management page at www.

Site on Fisheating Creek provides history lesson


Submitted photo
"This stream is very tortuous, and sometimes swells into a river, and then dwin-
dles into a brook," wrote George Henry Preble in 1842 of navigating Fisheating
Creek.


In preparation for the Public Day that is
planned for Friday, July 16, from 10 a.m to
3 p.m. at Fort Center on Fisheating Creek, a
little backstory should be provided to show
just how important this site is to the history
of our community.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission web site, the first known settle-
ment occurred along the banks of Fisheating
Creek between 1,000 and 500 B.C.
The early inhabitants, known as the Belle
Glade people, began building mounds and
other earthworks and subsisted by netting
fish and harvesting turtles, snakes, and al-
ligators.
According to University of Florida arche-
ologist Jerald Milanich, who worked on the
area as a student in the 1960s, perforations
found on turtle shells indicate turtles were
tethered to be eaten as needed.
The creek was more than a source of
food and water.
It was also a canoe highway leading to
Lake Okeechobee and its resources to the
east and other settlements to the west.
The Fort Center site consists of mounds,
ponds, circular ditches, and linear embank-
ments built over at least 2,000 years.
William Sears, director of the excavation
and author of "Fort Center: An Archeologi-
cal Site in the Lake Okeechobee Basin," be-
lieves that corn pollen found in one of the
three overlapping basins indicates that the
Belle Glade people grew corn.
If true, Fort Center would be one of the
earliest, if not the earliest, example of agri-
culture in the pre-Columbian Eastern United
States.
Sears theorizes that people dug ditches to
drain the soil for corn, which will not grow
in wet soils, and that this practice may have
spread across the Caribbean or around the
Gulf from the lowlands of Mexico.
At the site, bundles of human remains
were found along with the remnants of a
wooden platform decorated with wooden
carvings of wildlife including life-size cats, a


bear, foxes, eagles, and wading birds.
Other objects were preserved in the
muck at the bottom of the pond including
a wooden carving of an otter running with a
fish in its mouth.
The site, listed in the National Register of
Historic Places, was still occupied, although
there was no evidence of agriculture, when
the Europeans arrived in the 16th and 17th
centuries.
During the Second Seminole War (1835-
1842), a cabbage palm palisade at the site
was named Fort Center for Lieutenant J.P.
Center.
Oscen Tustenuggee, who had organized
many war parties, and his two bothers Mic-
co Tustenuggee and Old Tustenuggee and
their wives lived in villages along the creek.
In 1842, George Henry Preble of the U.S.
Navy described the difficulties of a trip up
Fisheating Creek in a 30-foot cypress dugout
canoe named "Susan" after his sweetheart:
"This stream is very tortuous, and some-
times swells into a river, and then dwindles
into a brook."
The fort was reactivated at the start of
the Third Seminole War in 1855. Lieutenant
Henry Benson described Fort Center upon
his arrival in April 1855 as "more disagree-
able, unhealthy and devoid of interest than
I had expected ... Mosquitoes awful. 1 bil-
lion of them ... Hot-hot as fire all day." His
diary concludes with "the same in the same.
Killed two snakes."
At the conclusion of the Third Seminole
War in 1858, many Indians had been re-
moved from Florida.
In 1881, Clay MacCauley at the direction
of the federal government found 37 ex-
tended families living in 22 campsites in five
areas, one of which was Fisheating Creek.
By 1930, cultivation of sugar cane, cattle
ranching, and establishment of a refinery
at Moore Haven forced the remaining Semi-
noles to move from Fisheating Creek. Some
Seminoles went to work for cattle barron
Jacob Summerlin.


Much of the land surrounding the
creek came to be owned by the Lykes
Brothers.
The Lykes Empire began in the
1880s when Dr. Howell Tyson Lykes
began exporting cattle to Cuba.
All seven of his sons went into the
family cattle or shipping business,
and today Lykes Brothers Inc. is the
largest producer of cattle and the big-
gest meat packer in Florida.
Over the years the creek has been
the focal point in the lives of the lo-
cal people. They courted, married,
honeymooned, and baptized their
children there.
Along the banks they colored
and hid Easter eggs and celebrated
Thanksgiving. They depended on the
creek for subsistence and recreation,
hunting, fishing, and camping along
its banks.
The Lykes family prohibited de-
velopment along the creek and ran a
campground and a canoeing conces-
sion at Palmdale.
In 1989, the Lykes Brothers closed
the creek to the public, igniting a 10-


year legal battle.
On February 19, 1998, Circuit Court
Judge Charles Carlton ruled that Fisheating
Creek belonged to the people of Florida, al-
though the ordinary high water line, which
is used to determine the boundary between
public lands and private lands, had not been
determined.
Lykes Brothers appealed the decision. To
put an end to litigation, the parties agreed to
a settlement calling for the state of Florida to
purchase a corridor along the creek under
the auspices of the Conservation and Rec-
reation Lands (CARL) Program using funds
appropriated by the Florida Forever Act.
This land (18,272 acres) became Fisheat-
ing Creek WMA.
The settlement agreement has a number
of stipulations that determine recreational

Flood control maintained without raising tax rates


SFWMD staff to recommend
efficiencies, no change in
tax rate

Financial staff at the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD) will recom-
mend to the Governing Board this week that
ecosystem restoration and water manage-
ment operations serving 7.5 million resi-
dents can continue forward without raising
the agency's tax rates for residents from Or-
lando to the Keys.
"In uncertain economic times, the Dis-
trict must meet its responsibilities by operat-
ing as efficiently as possible," said SFWMD
Assistant Executive Director Tom Olliff.
"Through conservative fiscal and strategic
planning, next year's budget will meet flood
protection, water supply and environmental
restoration goals while reducing the taxes
paid by South Floridians."
If approved by the Governing Board at
its public meeting on Thursday, the millage
rate would become part of the proposed
$1.04 billion Fiscal Year 2011 budget (Oct. 1,
2010 September 30, 2011) that will once
again reflect a significant investment in the
environment and a commitment to fiscal
responsibility. The proposed budget is re-
viewed and finalized in September. The Dis-
trict tax rate has remained the same since
Fiscal Year 1998.
Included in the proposed budget is a host
of funded projects to benefit restoration and

The primary goal of Hendry Regional
Corporate Health is to improve your
health and make you feel better in every
possible way.
Thanks to donations from the commu-
nity and a grant from the Lake Okeecho-
bee Rural Health Network, Inc. (LORHN),
Hendry Regional is able to offer free well-
ness education classes to the community,
such as diabetes and tobacco cessation.
LORHN was established in 1994 as a
non-profit corporation designed to pro-
vide for the special and specific needs of
the residents, visitors, and businesses in
the Lake Okeechobee area; with extend-
ed services to Glades, Hendry, Okeecho-
bee, Western Martin, and Western Palm
Beach counties.
Toni Pavey-McDaniel, Director of Cor-
porate Health Services, 203 S. Gloria
Street, Clewiston, commented that insur-
ance companies can, and have, charged
participants as much as $1,000 for the
diabetes classes.
"Because our community cannot af-
ford those kinds of charges, I looked for
a way to offer the classes free," said Ms.
Pavey-McDaniel.
The diabetes education class -- which
is offered in both English and Spanish -- is
taught by Sherry Hooker, RN, and given

$15.9 million for continued construc-
tion of the C-111 Spreader Canal to restore
Florida Bay and the Everglades
*$11.7 million for ongoing construction
of the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treat-
ment Area, which is transforming ranchland
north of Lake Okeechobee into a wetland
to remove phosphorus before it reaches the
lake
$60 million for operations and mainte-
nance of 2,600 miles of canals and levees
The proposed budget also reflects an ap-
proximately $61 million reduction in prop-
erty tax revenues, in comparison with the
current year.
"The District consistently takes a fiscally
conservative approach to budgeting, which
enables the agency to meet its core func-
tions even during periods of economic
downturns," said SFWMD Budget Director
Mike Smykowski.
"A variety of cost-cutting measures over
the years constantly reassessing operat-
ing costs and proposed projects ensure
that every taxpayer dollar goes directly to
support our mission."
From Fiscal Year 2008 to Fiscal Year 2010,
the District achieved more than $10.8 mil-
lion in savings by reducing costs for fleet
management, training, travel, energy use
and other operations.
The District's annual budget is funded
by a combination of ad valorem (property)
taxes and other sources, such as federal,


once a month for two evenings.
Ms. Hooker educates the participants
on the difference between Type 1 and
Type 2 diabetes, how to control diabetes,
and how diabetes affects cholesterol and
high blood diabetes.
The next diabetes education class will
be held Wednesday and Thursday, July
21 and 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the center
in Clewiston.
Seating is limited; no physician refer-
ral is required. Call Toni or Sherry at 863-
983-9121 to reserve your place.

state and local revenue; licenses; permit
fees; grants; agricultural taxes; investment
income and bond proceeds.
The proposed tax rates represent 62.4
cents per thousand dollars of value in 15 of
the District's 16 counties (the Okeechobee
Basin). For example, a home with a tax-
able value of $200,000 (assessed value of
$250,000, less the $50,000 homestead ex-
emption) would see a total District tax bill
of $124.80.
For Collier County and mainland Monroe


County (the Big Cypress Basin), the tax rates
represent 48.14 cents per thousand dollars.
A similar home in this region would see a
tax bill of $96.28.
The District's nine-member Governing
Board will consider the staff's recommenda-
tion on millage rates at its business meeting
on Thursday, July 15.
The meeting will be held at the District's
headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road, West
Palm Beach, FL 33406.

In its report the agency writes that a 1999
Chrysler, driven by 23-year-old Genesis J.

chain of events.
She was traveling east on C.R. 74 right
before the wreck, failing to stop at the inter-

Yet another vehicle, this one a FedEx

Sebring, was unable to avoid the wreck and
crashed into Ramsey's Mitsubishi.
Although the report mentions that Welch

Already, in the few months since launching the Facebook page telling all about
Fisheating Creek, the people maintaining it have attracted more than 800 fol-
lowers.


This page has everything a
tourist or local resident would
want to know about events,
water levels, photos, videos
and reviews by people who
have visited.
Tourists have the opportu-
nity to post questions and have
them answered not only by the
operators of Fisheating Creek
but by local residents who have
been visiting for many years.
The outpost is owned and
operated by Allen and Patty
Register under contract with
Florida Fish and Wildlife Com-
mission.
The Facebook page is the
brainchild of Patty Register. She
originally got the idea when she
designed a page for Gatorama
in order to get the word out on
their gator hatching schedules.
Upon her arrival at Fisheat-
ing Creek, armed with ideas
gained from a social network-
ing seminar she had attended,
she dove into constructing and


perfecting the Fisheating Creek page.
When asked why she chose Facebook as
the medium for her project she said, "Face-
book is just perfect for posting photos, vid-
eos, and events that everyone will be able
to see."
So far, she has been right.
Since the page's inception this March,

His paternal grandparents are Marvin and
Ellen Bain of Clewiston, and his paternal
great-grandfather is D.W Judd of Clewiston.
He is welcomed home by many other

when the Registers took over Fisheating
Creek, the page has acquired more than 800
followers who actively post comments, pro-
vide seasoned information to tourists who
have stumbled across the page and are im-
pressed with the area, and write reviews of
the outpost and its events.
This is just one of the great examples of
people in Glades County that are dedicated
to promoting the best of what this county
has to offer.

Reports of mosquito-bourne illnesses in Glades County


Florida Department of
Health advises extra
precautions

There has been increased activity of
mosquito-borne illnesses in areas of Glades
County. Several horses have tested positive
for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) virus.
To protect your horses from mosquitoes,
talk to a veterinarian regarding vaccination
to help protect them from EEE and West
Nile Virus (WNV).
Please note: The risk of transmission to
humans has been increased.
What is Eastern equine encephalitis
(EEE)? EEE is a disease caused by a virus
spread by infected mosquitoes. EEE virus
(EEEV) is one of a group of mosquito-trans-
mitted viruses that can cause inflammation
of the brain (encephalitis).
How do people get infected? EEEV is
transmitted through the bite of an infected
mosquito. Disease transmission does not
occur directly from person to person.
Who is at risk for infection and how does
someone get it after being bitten? Anyone in
an area where the virus is circulating can get
infected with EEEV It takes four to 10 days
after the bite of an infected mosquito to de-
velop symptoms of EEE.
What are the symptoms? Severe cases
can begin with the sudden onset of head-
ache, high fever, chills, and vomiting. The ill-
ness may then progress into disorientation,
seizures, and coma. Approximately a third
of patients who develop EEE die, and many
of those who survive have mild to severe
brain damage.
How is EEE diagnosed and what is the
treatment? Diagnosis is based on tests of
blood or spinal fluid. There is no vaccine
or preventive drug and there is no specific
treatment for EEE. Antibiotics are not ef-
fective against viruses. Severe illnesses are
treated by supportive therapy which may
include hospitalization, respiratory support,
and IV fluids.
What should I do if I think a family mem-
ber might have EEE? Consult your health-
care provider for proper diagnosis.
The Glades County Health Department
will continue with surveillance for EEE and
WNV and reminds residents and visitors to
take preventative measures to avoid being
bitten by mosquitoes that may cause en-
cephalitis: Wear long sleeves and long pants
when weather permits and have secure, in-
tact screens on windows and doors to keep
mosquitoes out.


Road closings
C.R. 720: From the Hendry County line
to north of the Hendry/Glades County line
(approx. 4.8 miles): Construction project
--- Crews will be installing construction signs
and placing erosion control devices (silt
fencing) during the next several weeks in
preparation for work to resurface the road
and install guardrail. Please use extra cau-
tion when traveling through the work area.
The contractor is C.W Roberts Contracting,
Inc.


Protect yourself and your family from
mosquitoes by using the 5 Ds:
Dusk and Dawn. That's when mosqui-
toes are out and looking for the next bite!
Avoid being outdoors just before the sun
comes up and just before the sun goes
down.
*Dress.-Try to wear light clothing that
covers most of your skin.
DEET. Use insect repellents containing
DEET, but talk to your healthcare provider
before you use this product on children.
Drainage. Check around your home
and get rid of any standing water such as old
tires, buckets, etc, where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs.
Elimination of breeding sites is also part
of prevention. Here are some tips for getting
rid of mosquito breeding sites around your
home: clean out the gutters; remove old tires
or drill holes in those used in playgrounds so
water can drain; turn over or remove empty
pots or buckets; pick up all beverage con-
tainers and cups after use; check tarps on
boats or other equipment that may collect
water; replace water in birdbaths or other
pet/animal feeding dishes at least once a
week; at least once a week, change the wa-

below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District=s per
emitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) un
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must

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 ol
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 Subsection 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 petition that disputes the material facts on which the District=s acbon is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
mmin. Code, including:
(1) Identificabon of the action being contested, including the permit
number, application number, District file number or any other SFWMC
identification number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the pebtioner and peb
toner's representative, if any.
(3) An explanation of how the petiboner's substanbal interests will be af-
ected by the agency determination.
4A 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 specif-
ic facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed acbon.
8) If dis ut issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in
dude an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules
or statutes.

action the petitioner 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 Districts
acbon 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 pebtion means
that the District's final action may be different from the posibon taken by it
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla.
Stats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The

Religious Columns


Eloquent Speech(Nothing to
do with words!)
Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Churches have all come to realize that
there is a need to speak in a language un-
derstood by the people to be served. Many
of the Churches that came into being in the
16th and 17th centuries were the first to re-
alize that to communicate, you have to be
understood.
I have attended
Church services
in languages that -
I really didn't
know; I was edi- .
fled but it was
not the same as if
I had been able to
fully participate.
I've learned
that in all of our
relationships,
communication-
language is im-
portant.
What I've also Rev. Thomas
come to realize is
that communica-
tion language, is more than words. How
many times have I heard someone say "But
you said" and complain that their words did
not agree with what they had done.
Other times, the response is "Well, I said
- but what I meant was" or "You didn't un-
derstand, I didn't really say that what I said
was" and they're off and running.
The problem is not a new one. The Lord
tells His followers "The secret of the King-
dom of God has been given to you but to
those on the outside they may ever be see-
ing but never perceiving, and ever hearing
but never understanding(Mark 4:11-12)."
Jesus used parables throughout His min-
istry. Parables are about a kind of communi-
cation that is thought of as analogies; telling
about something similar to the point of the
story. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like" or
"A certain man fell among thieves." I think
there is more to it than just that.
Parables are communicating through
actions. The people in the parables are not
lecturers or debaters; they are doers. The
truth of the parable comes through actions;
a prodigal son returns and is forgiven; there
is more joy over the lost sheep that is found
than the ninety-nine that are safe; a man
who searches his field for a great treasure.
The communication is in their actions and
we understand them far better than if we
had only received a lecture or a rule. So, too,
with our day-to-day communications; when
somebody comes to me and says "But he/
she said" I advise to "look at the actions that
you see."
When my ministry was devoted to sub-
stance abusers, I would hear all kinds of
stories, promises, assurances, rationales,
denials, excuses. The persons spoke most
eloquently by what they did, as we all do.
Not just individuals but groups, including
churches, speak most eloquently by what
they do moreso than by what they say, too.
The faithful have been admonished "Do
not merely listen to the word and so deceive


yourselves, do what it says (James 1:22),"
or "be ye doers of the word and not hearers
only, deceiving yourselves." Leaders, clergy
or lay need to consider the example they set.
When all of the sermons are given and
the speeches have finished, what has been
done? How have the words been translated
into actions?
That can be the most eloquent speech or
sermon of all.

Destroy the Destroyers!
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The book of Revelation, which records
the closing events on this earth that are to
culminate in the return of Jesus, has been
of my interest.
I wrote my own commentary on the
book and have taught it several times in the
church and Bible Institutes.
One of the statements in it has become
a very special significance in the last very
few years, especially the Oil Spill in the Gulf.
The prophecy is recorded in the 11th Chap-
ter and is the closing statement of the 18th
verse. It reads, 'And shouldest destroy them
which destroy the earth."
We are tardily awakening to the shocking
truth that this is exactly what we are doing
with our advance technology on which we
have practically made a god to ourselves.
Everything is being poisoned; the earth, the
air, the streams and lakes, even the mighty
seas.
Likewise, plants and animals, including
ourselves.
Everything is being affected, even the
unborn. Remember what one of our drugs
did to the babes of Western Germany. Now
much else is becoming suspected concern-
ing its effect on the developing babe.
The Creator placed in the ocean a natu-
ral antiseptic to protect it from becoming a
stench.
We refer to the salt content, in addition
to this, certain creatures, as the shark, to dis-
pose of the dead bodies of the waters. Con-
tinued poisoning of the seas may not only
reduce the efficacy of the salt but may also
destroy the specially created life which feeds
on the carrion of the sea. Then what?
God breathed into the first man's nostrils
the breath of life and man became a living
soul. Men must still depend on breathing in
order to continue that life. However, con-
template what is now being done to the air
which we must breathe to live even for a few
minutes.
Residues from crop spraying, fertilizers,
bug killers, chemical additions to our feeds,
even to the foods fed to slaughter animals,
are now under investigation with question
marks over them as to the effects they may
have not only on animals themselves but to
those who consume them for food.
Unless and until such dangers are
checked and reversed, the conditions must
steadily worsen along with the increasing
danger to life and the environment.
The Creator seems to have given men
sufficient rope to hang himself, as the old
proverb expresses it.
Thus he is left with neither excuse nor
alibi for his attitudes and actions.


Being Neighborly
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A Sunday school teacher was telling her
class the story of the Good Samaritan. In viv-
id detail, she told how the man was beaten,
robbed and left for dead. She then asked,
"If you saw a person lying on the roadside
all wounded and bleeding, what would you
do?"
One thoughtful little girl broke the silence,
"I think I'd throw up."
She was being honest.
There are many adults who would not
respond well to such situations.
In New York City, a mailman, shot by a
sniper, was ordered to leave a building lobby
because he was dripping blood.
In Oklahoma City, a woman gave birth
unexpectedly on a city sidewalk. Bystand-
ers turned their faces and ignored her. A taxi
driver looked, then sped away. A nearby ho-
tel refused to provide her a blanket.
In Dayton, Ohio, a dozen people saw a
woman drive her car into the Miami River.
They watched indifferently as the woman
climbed on the car's roof and screamed that
she couldn't swim. The woman drowned.
What has happened to us? These people
are our neighbors! One of our greatest con-
cerns should be that these aren't isolated in-
cidents. In the Scriptures, an expert in the law
asked Jesus how he should be neighborly.
His first question, however, was, "Teacher,
what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus responded, "What is written in the


Law? How do you read it?"
The expert answered: "Love the Lord
your God with all your heart and with all
your soul and with all your strength and with
all your mind"; and, "Love your neighbor as
yourself."
"You have answered correctly," Jesus re-
plied. "Do this and you will live."
But this expert in the law wanted "to jus-
tify himself" and so he asked Jesus, "Who is
my neighbor?"
In reply Jesus shared this story:
"A man was going down from Jerusa-
lem to Jericho, when he fell amongst rob-
bers. They stripped him, beat him, and went
away, leaving him half dead. A priest hap-
pened to be going down the same road.
When he saw the man, he passed by on the
other side. Likewise, a Levite, when he came
to the place and saw him, passed by on the
other side.
But when a Samaritan came by and saw
him, he took pity on him. The Samaritan
bandaged the man's wounds, pouring on oil
and wine. Then he put the man on his don-
key and took him to an inn to care for him.
The next day he took out two silver coins
and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after
him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will re-
imburse you for any extra expense you may
have.'
"Which of these three," Jesus asked, "do
you think was a neighbor to the man who
fell into the hands of robbers?"
The expert in the law replied, "The one
who had mercy on him."
Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."

Glades County's 2010 Election: candidate questionnaires


Candidates discuss their
platforms, why they decided
to run for election


Name: Janet Peeples Storey
Age: 58
Occupa-
tion: Ranch-
er/Farmer-
School Board
Member
Family:
I was born
and raised in
Glades Coun-
ty. I have been
married to
Byron Storey
for 34 years.
We have 3
daughters:
Leslie(Weston)
Pryor, Erin(Brad) Schonauer and
Whitney(Dusty) Savioe and I granddaugh-
ter: Harley Rae Pryor
Seat you are seeking? Glades County
School Board District 1I
What made you run for office?
I am seeking re-election for the Glades
County School Board. I ran 12 years ago to
make decisions in terms of the educational
welfare of all children, regardless of ability,
race, creed, sex or social standings.
We have a great school system and I
wanted to be part of it after I retired from
teaching.
Why are you the best candidate?
I've been in education for 34 years, 22 of
them were teaching and 12 years being on
the School Board. I bring experience and
knowledge to promote the best interest of
the school district as a whole.
As a board member you are there to bring
about desired changes through legal and
ethical procedures, upholding and enforcing
all laws, State Board of Education Rules and
court orders pertaining to schools.
What is the biggest issue facing our com-
munity and how do you intend on address-
ing it?
The biggest issue facing our community
is the legislation and funding from Tallahas-
see. It not only affects the schools but our
county as well.
We are working with less money than
ever. We need to look at our budget and put
the money to the best use fro the students
attending our schools. Funds need to be
spent on appropriate curriculum, facilities,
and to motivate our students to achieve their
highest potential.
Who do you consider the "Role Model"
public servant and why?
My dad, Billy Peeples, was my "role mod-
el." He served as a County Commissioner for
16 years. He believed that people should get
involved, give their time and effort to make
Glades County a great place to live.
He felt that honesty, fairness, and caring
were all the important factors that make a
good public servant. I hope to have followed
in his footsteps.


Name: Tammy Humphries
Age: 43
Occupation: I am a Certified General
Contractor. __
My husband
and I own
and operate
Humphries
Construction
Co., Inc.
Family: I
have been
married for
20 years A
to George '
Humphries.
We have a
daughter,
Teale, who
is 17 and will
be a senior at Moore Haven High School this
year. We also have a daughter, Shelley Jones
who is a teacher at Moore Haven Elementa-
ry School. Her two year old daughter, Tylee
is our beautiful granddaughter. My family
has been a part of the Glades County School
system since 1925.
Seat: I am seeking the seat of School
Board, District 1.
Motivation: There are many factors that
motivated me to run for office. I believe our
community should EXPECT MORE from our
elected school board members. I hear from
parents and students all the time about how
no one will answer their questions, much
less address issues that they feel are impor-
tant to them. I have experienced this same
frustration, and it is my goal to be a voice for
these parents and students.
Best Candidate: I attended MHES from
kindergarten through sixth grade, and I
graduated from Moore Haven High School
with honors. I have a Bachelor of Science
in Secondary Education from Florida Gulf
Coast University and have taught at the High
School and Elementary School. Currently
my daughter attends Moore Haven High
School. I have been a member of the SAC
(Student Advisory Committee) at MHES and
MHHS for the past 8 years and have chaired
the committee for at least 3 of them.
I visit the school several times a week
and talk to parents and students on a regu-
lar basis. I have a vested interest in the well
being of our schools because my family is
immersed in it.
A school board member should be an
advocate for the parents, teachers, and stu-
dents. I want a parent to know that they can
call me and I will go with them to the school;
not ignore or refuse to discuss issues. Most
people just want to be heard, and I will be
the person who listens.
Every student in every school in Glades
County deserves the best education pos-
sible, and it is the school board's job to en-
sure that.
Issues: A few of the issues facing our
schools are class size, safety, and pride. The
size of a class is extremely important to the
success of the students and teachers. Lower-
ing class size should be a huge priority for
the board.


In today's world, schools have become a
hot zone for violence, whether through bul-
lying or gang activity. The lack of safety pro-
cedures in our schools must be addressed
immediately.
Lastly, I would like to put pride back in
our schools. Students should be proud of
their school! Let's clean up our campuses
and make them something our students,
teachers, and parents can be proud of! Vot-
ing for me means you can EXPECT MORE!

I chose to run for county commissioner

the growth in a positive manner and work in


harmony with our government to benefit all
of Glades County.
I want to make sure there is a good bal-

Seat you are seeking: Seat #3, Port La-
Belle Community Development District
What motivated you to run for office?
Originally, 4yrs. ago, it was change from the
status quo, and this proved to be a hard-row-
to-hoe. This term, this candidate would like
to continue with the forward progression
that is finally occurring within the district.
Why are you the best candidate? I have
been serving on the board for the past four
years, heard details of how the previous
board/mgt. ran the district, and continue to
strive for improvement.
The old board let district business run
as status quo. After a rough beginning, the

what services the district has to offer.
This candidate would like to see the dis-
trict continue to move forward and provide
additional services, as no new services have
occurred in decades. Transparency within
the district office is key for success in mov-
ing forward, as this is what had been a hin-
drance with the old administration.


What is the biggest issue facing our cornm-
munity and how do you intend on address-
ing it?
The economy, and the toll that the hous-
ing situation has caused the district. The tax
revenue is down for the district, and the peo-
ple of, not only our district, but everywhere
are struggling to make ends meet. There
have been no pay increases for many years
for those who still have jobs.
However, costs everywhere continue to
rise. This candidate, along with a few other
board members, would like to continue to


keep costs down by extending the pay freeze
(last year was the first). There are currently
two raises, which have been added to the
budget by the district manager.
This candidate would also like to see a
freeze on unnecessary travel. All paperwork
to be prepared should be done in a timely
manner to avoid late fees. In other words,
in this economic time, wherever an expense
can be saved it should be. Everyone needs
to pitch in, no exceptions.
Who do you consider the "role model"
public servant and why? In our area, this


candidate would say that Glades County
Commissioner Donna Storter-Long is a "role
model," as she has wanted change from the
status quo that was held by her predecessor.
She constantly reaches out to the people in
Glades County to see how she can improve
the area, or help organizations.
When she sees an issue arise that she feels
would not be advantageous to the area, she
speaks out against it. This candidate would
like to have the opportunity to be such a rep-
resentative for the people of the PLCDD, just
as Commissioner Storter-Long has.

them to live up to their potential and the gift

Belser previously was head football
coach at Hillcrest High in Evergreen, Ala-

Corps awards $24 million


contract for dike rehabilitation


Susan J. Jackson
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation
Project moved another step closer to re-
ducing flood risk with the recent award of
$24,349,219 to complete another section of
cutoff wall in the southeastern area of the
dike near Pahokee.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District, awarded the Seepage Cutoff
Wall task order July 9 to Bauer Foundation
Corporation of Odessa, Fla.
This is the third task order awarded to
Bauer, and the sixth order under a single
contract for emplacement of the partial cut-
off wall.
The 75-year-old Herbert Hoover Dike
(HHD) is a Corps of Engineers dam safety
top priority. Jacksonville District is currently
rehabilitating the dike's most vulnerable
section, the 22-mile section between Port
Mayaca and Belle Glade.
Emplacement of the cutoff wall provides
immediate risk reduction benefits.
The Corps began installing a partially
penetrating cutoff wall in the dike in 2008.
The wall serves as a barrier to water path-
ways or piping, which can lead to internal
erosion.
The two- to three-foot-thick wall extends
from the top of the dike through the foun-
dation to several feet beyond the limestone
bedrock, averaging 50 to 70 feet or about
three stories below the crest of the dike.
The Corps recognizes the challenges in-
volved in the cutoff wall construction. To


help ensure success and momentum, the
HHD Team sought global expertise and used
a contract vehicle that allowed multiple firms
to work simultaneously.
The Corps awarded multiple "task order"
contracts in 2008 for cutoff wall construc-
tion to Bauer, Hayward Baker Inc., based
in Odenton, Md., and, Treviicos South, Inc.,
of Boston, Mass. To date, 17 miles of cutoff
wall in the 22-mile "Reach 1" section are
now under construction or have been com-
pleted, totaling over $170 million in cutoff
wall contracts. This latest task order is for a
2.7-mile section. The Corps will award one
more task order for another 3.4 miles of cut-
off wall in 2010.
In addition to cutoff wall work, local con-
struction firm H&R of Belle Glade is near
completion a $6 million quarry fill contract.
The quarries abutted the base of the dike
and were of concern due to slope stability.
Clearing and filling the quarry stabilizes the
area and base of the dike.
"We're keeping momentum moving to
address known seepage and piping issues
in this area of the dike," said Mike Rogalski,
program manager for the HHD Rehabilita-
tion Project. "Everything we're doing brings
us closer to making the dike safer and, there-
fore, helping keep people and property safe,
too."
The 143-mile earthen dike surrounds
Lake Okeechobee, the second largest fresh-
water lake in the nation. For more informa-
