management of Moore Haven
Correctional Facility
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Glades County Democrat
With a countdown date looming, staff with
CCA, the group assuming management duties
of the Moore Haven Correctional Facility from
the former GEO group in Moore Haven, has a
lot of logistical plans to sort through.
An example? Making sure inmates are fed.

handed over to CCA, a Nashville, Tenn. based
company, and one of the largest corrections
systems in the country. Establishing where
food will be purchased from is one of the
more essential items on the group's list, but
other items like straightening personnel files,
reviewing critical positions and instituting new
programs are also being worked on.
CCA was awarded the contract by the
Florida Department of Management Services
(DMS) to take over the 985-bed facility in April.
Shortly afterward, CCA named Laura Bedard

hit the ground running when we get there on

from overseeing the acquisition has been visit-

bers.
"We pledge to be a good community part-
ner sponsoring teams, working with the com-
munity," the new warden promised, under-
standing that the correctional facility is "an
integral part of the Moore Haven community."

Closed LaBelle bridge causing detour mix ups

The bridge closure in LaBelle has caused headaches among Glades County residents who frequent the town.
By Patty Brant The bridge has been in use for about 50 sign destruction, according to Florida Depart-

With the LaBelle Bridge closed for repairs
since July 5, life has changed for residents and
out-of-towners alike. As expected, the closure
has drawn complaints.
Getting across the river has become a real
challenge on a daily basis for many residents
who just want to get to work on time or whose
work requires them to cross the bridge numer-
ous times a day.


stantial mechanism requires extensive mainte-
nance to keep it operating and safe. No new
bridge is anticipated for at least the next 20
years.
Aside from the extra drive time and expense,
most complaints have been about signage.
Mainly, complaints center around not enough
signage. Out-of-towners especially have been
confused about the detour.
Vandals have been responsible for some


Tower. A detour sign just north of the bridge, at
the intersection of SR 29 and CR 78, has spent a
fair amount of time in the ditch. Unsure wheth-
er this has been due to weather conditions or
vandals, Ms. Tower said workers have moved
the sign and added more sandbags to make it
more stable. Some signs have been knocked
over or spray painted, she said.

Lake 0 residents warned about destructive lightning


Precautions advised for
Lake 0 communities

As insurers and homeowners keep a
close watch on the Atlantic Basin for hur-
ricane activity this summer, the Institute for
Business & Home Safety (IBHS) cautions
people in the Lake 0 area not to underes-
timate the destructive and deadly force of
thunderstorms and lightning, which occur
far more often and directly affect more of
the U.S. than hurricanes.
According to the National Weather Ser-
vice, every thunderstorm produces light-
ning. On average, 300 people are injured
and 80 people are killed each year in the U.S.
by lightning.
Thunderstorms are a dangerous weath-
er event and their destructive capabilities
should not be taken lightly. Property losses
related to lightning strikes exceed $1 billion
annually, according to insurance industry
data. These losses can range from damage
to expensive electronic equipment fires that
destroy an entire house or business.
For lightning protection, a whole-house/
building surge protector is the best starting


point for reducing the risk of damage.
It is important
to make sure
that it is either a
secondary surge
arrestor tested to
IEEE C62.11 or a
transient voltage
suppressor that
has been tested
to UL 1449, 2nd
Edition.
A number of
power compa-
nies have pro-
grams to provide
and install the
whole-building
surge protec-
tion. If this is not
available in your
area, consult a
licensed.

the protection
should extend

Dengue Fever makes its way into South Florida


Residents should be mindful
of mosquito-borne illness
By Pat Dobbins
Florida Department of Health
You've probably heard stories in the news
lately about Dengue fever. Dengue fever has
re-entered the United States after an absence
of 65 years. There have been reported cases
in Key West and now a suspected case is be-
ing investigated in Miami-Dade.
This potentially serious, mosquito-borne
illness had once disappeared from the Unit-
ed States.
Locally transmitted cases haven't been
reported in Florida since the 1930s. Any
cases in Florida since then have been found
in people who traveled outside the United
States, but more recently, the new cases


have been found in people who haven't left
our borders.
The Florida Department of Health says
that in 2009 there were 27 confirmed cases
of dengue fever in Key West. Then in May
2010, dengue fever reappeared in Key West
and so far there are 16 confirmed cases.
The disease causes symptoms similar to
the flu, including a sudden fever with head-
ache, joint and muscle pain, severe pain be-
hind the eyes, and skin rashes. Nausea and
diarrhea can also occur.
Dengue fever is not spread from person
to person and is seldom fatal except to the
very young and the elderly who may have
other health conditions.
Additionally, people need to avoid mos-
quitoes by avoiding being outdoors just
before sunrise and just before sunset, wear
light clothing that covers most of your skin,
use insect repellent containing DEET, and


get rid of any standing water such as old
tires, buckets, etc, where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs.
Empty and refill bird baths, pet water
dishes, etc. on a weekly basis, because most
mosquitoes only need a week to breed!
There is no specific medication for den-
gue but the CDC says people who think
they may have dengue should consult their
healthcare provider, use pain relievers with
acetaminophen and avoid pain relievers
which contain ibuprofen, naproxen or as-
pirin.
They should rest, drink plenty of fluids
and avoid mosquito bites to prevent spread
of the disease.
Outbreaks of dengue occur primarily in
areas where certain types of mosquitoes
live. This includes most tropical urban areas
of the world.
Dengue viruses may be introduced into


Dengue fever is characterized by:


Fever
Rash
Muscle and
joint pains


Aedes aegypti mosquito


areas by travelers who become infected
while visiting other areas of the tropics
where dengue commonly exists.

Religious Columns


Repentance!
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Most everyone knows the story of the
prodigal son as re-
lated by Jesus. This .
young man took
his inheritance and
left home to spend
it his own willful
way. He squan-
dered it on sin and
finally ended up b
living with the pigs 4
and even wanting ".
to eat their food.
But one day he
came to himself
and decided there Jackie Miller.
must be a better
way. So he picked
himself up and went back home to ask his
father's forgiveness. The father forgave him
and welcomed him back home.
The story well illustrates true repentance.
But there is a different version today.
Instead of people leaving the filth of sin
and going to their heavenly Father and home,
they want God to move into the pig pen with
them! They want to be Christians, sons of
God, but they want to continue in sin, too.
While they know that home is better in the
long run, they want to enjoy sin as long as
they can. And, of course, if God is there with
them, it almost seems like home.
This may be a crude comparison, but it
is true.
There are too many people who want to
"join" some church or make some religious
profession without forsaking all sin to follow
Christ. They think to be able to continue liv-
ing with at least some of their old sins, they
can still be Christians. But you forget one
thing, if such thoughts have crossed your
mind.
The prodigal's father didn't go to the pig
pen to wallow with him, and neither will
God come down on your sinful level. You
must change your mind about sin and get
out of it before you can be restored to the
household of God! That is God's plan for the
backslider (See Acts 8:22).
God's plan for the non-Christian is for
him to hear the "good news" (Gospel) that
Christ has died for your sins, was buried,
and arose from the dead, and is alive for-
evermore. The next step is to repent, die to


the practice of sin, i.e. regret that you ever
sinned and decide to restrain yourself from
sin in the future.
The next step is to Confess faith in Christ,
like the Ethiopian Eunuch, "I believe that Je-
sus Christ is the Son of God" (Acts 8:37).
The final step in becoming a Christian is
to be baptized (immersed) in water for sal-
vation (Mark 16:15-16); for remission of sins
to receive the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38); to obey
the Gospel (Romans 6:3-5, 16-18); to put on
Christ by faith (Galatians 3:26-27); The Lord
adds you to His church (Acts 2:47); and you
are to continue faithful (Acts 2:42); wearing
only the name "Christian" (Acts 11:26). This
is God's one and only plan of salvation as
taught by Christ and His Apostles.

Compound Probabilities
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Science has developed a method of
studying odds called the science of com-
pound probabilities. Using this method, a
study was done to determine the odds of
one man in history fulfilling all the prophe-
cies recorded in the Scripture that point to
the Jewish Messiah.
There are over 300 Messianic prophecies
in the Scriptures. For the study, eight clearly
defined and specific Messianic prophecies
were chosen that were totally beyond the
human control of Jesus: (1) His place of
birth (Micah 5:2); (2) Time of birth (Daniel
9:25); (3) Manner of birth (Isaiah 7:14); (4)
Betrayal (Zechariah 11:12, 13); (5) Manner
of death (Psalm 22:16-18) Notice the detail
even down to the gambling for His robe; (6)
Piercing of hands, feet, and side (Zechariah
12:10); (7) People mocking (Psalm 22:7,8);
and (8) Burial (Isaiah 53:9).
The compound probability of just these
eight prophecies being fulfilled was found to
be 1 in 10 to the 17th power.
To better understand what this number
really means, take that many presidential
golden dollars and lay them on the face of
Texas. They would cover the entire state
almost two feet deep. Then, mark a single
golden dollar and drop it somewhere in the
state as you fly over it. Blindfold someone
and let him or her parachute in anywhere
they want. Allow them only one attempt to
try to find and pick up the coin you marked.
What chance do you think they would
have of getting the right one? It would be
just about the same chance that the proph-


ets had of writing these eight prophecies and
having them all come true in any one man.
Yet, Jesus fulfilled them all!
Now let's raise the odds using 48 proph-
ecies. If my math is correct and my zero
count accurate, the chances of one person
fulfilling 48 of the Messianic prophecies to
be 1 in 10 to the 157th power.
And to think, Jesus is reported to have
fulfilled over 300 prophecies! It would seem
to me that if you ran the numbers, it would
take more intestinal fortitude (my wife
doesn't like me to use the word "guts"!) for
someone to defend that Jesus is not the Mes-
siah, than to accept the fact that He is! The
science of probabilities speaks for itself!

1 out of 6 Hendry residents is currently unemployed


Glades County posts slight
improvement

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Glades County Democrat
Of the approximately 17,000 people in
Hendry County's labor force, nearly 3,000
are without a job, the state's Agency for
Workforce Innovation revealed this week.
With the state mounting what look to be
the early stages of a recovery, posting for
the third straight month slightly improved
figures, Hendry County continues hurting
more than any other county in Florida.
With a 16.1 percent unemployment rate
locally, the takeaway is that one out of every


six "employable" residents is without work
in Clewiston and LaBelle and their outer-
lying areas.
Figures show the unemployment rate
dropping by .3 percent this month across the
state. This has brought the unemployment
number in Florida to 11.7 percent, down
from its peak above 12 percent in January.
It is the third consecutive monthly de-
cline in the state's unemployment rate and
the lowest rate since October 2009, reports
AWI.
But the battle isn't won yet. While rank-
ing at the top of the list, Hendry County is by
no means alone in high ranking, with Flagler
and St. Lucie counties rounding out the top
three, at 15.4 and 14.3 percent respectively.


Glades County reports that 12.1 percent
of its workforce is without a job -- a nearly
full percentage point improvement from the
month before.
Nearby Palm Beach County reported
an 11.8 unemployment rate, although in-
dications from the Palm Beach County
Economic Development Office, which con-
ducted an independent study last year, are
that the Glades cities of Belle Glade, South
Bay and Pahokee see unemployment rates
between 30 and 40 percent -- which means
that roughly one out of every three residents
are without a job.
The reporting agency finds that the coun-
ties affected by the highest unemployment
figures experienced "seasonal declines in


agriculture and related industries."
This seems to be the case around the lake
area, with agriculture on uncertain terms
with the potential purchase of U.S. Sugar by
the state, as well as a focus from these in-
dustries to automate more and more jobs.
AWI reports that there are now 47 coun-
ties reporting double-digit unemployment
rates in June, up from 44 the previous month
-- only 20 counties are reporting single-digit
rates.
"This continuing decline in Florida's un-
employment rate is another strong indica-
tion that our economy is improving," said
Cynthia R. Lorenzo, AWI director.
Hendry County, meanwhile, has less to
be enthused about.


2010 Candidate Questionnaire


Name: I am Donna Storter Long, 62, in-
cumbent Glades County Commissioner Dis-
trict 2, full time. My husband JC Long and I
reside in Ortona, my native community.
What motivated you to run for elec-
tion? YOU the Citizen are the reason I am
seeking RE-election as County Commission-
er District 2, to continue as YOUR advocate
in county government. You have a right to
information concerning actions considered
and taken by the commission and its effects
on property rights and tax assessment.
I ask hard questions because you have
asked for answers, and I represent YOUR in-
terests. Many of you receive my mamzelle@
strato.net email "agenda notes"- becoming
the first to know what
transpires in county
commission meetings.
Why are you the
best candidate? Hon-
esty, dedication and
accountability are the
ethical principles I con-
tinue to bring to Glades \.
County government.
Having developed good
relationships within all
county departments, I
welcome your inquiries
on how I can assist in
county-related issues,
e.g. code enforcement,
permitting, county in- Donna Storter L
frastructure mainte-
nance, etc.
Our employees work hard with limited
resources and deserve our admiration and
appreciation. We cannot resolve all prob-
lems, but be sure, I will listen courteously
and patiently to your concerns. I promise I
will try to help however I can.
Glades County, like most, faces decreased
revenue, with greater challenges for fiscal
stewardship, but unlike most counties, we
are debt-free. As the economic downturn
has changed your income/outgo, Glades
County has to balance a budget with fewer
funds.
What is the biggest issue facing our


c


community and how do you intend on
addressing it?
We have done so with minimal service
reduction by maximizing efficiency with
frugality. Accountability for expenditures is
paramount; with the services of the Clerk's
Finance Dept and annual auditor recom-
mendations, we remain in compliance with
state and federal mandates. We, like you,
will "tighten our belts" and weather the
economic storm, coming thru stronger and
wiser. YOUR money, environment and chil-
dren's future are at stake.
Utilizing professional staff and our own
ingenuity, it is incumbent upon commis-
sioners, the county's official policy makers,
to not only minimize expenditures but also
seek sources for non-ad va-
lorem revenue, such as
we have done obtaining
FDOT funds for resurfac-
ing roads. No, we can-
not provide all services or
amenities, unable to pave
all our roads.

However, carefully ad-
ministering restricted-use
one-cent sales tax revenue
approved by voters, we
have assisted community-
requested projects includ-
ing playgrounds, parks,
and upgrading commu-
Submitted photo nity center buildings. We
ing are reviewing the dispo-
sition of impact fee rev-
enues for infrastructure,
and examining all avenues of grant funding,
as well as tax-structured resources.
Who do you consider the "role
model" public servant and why? I honor
two public servant role models; both have
served Glades County with dedication and
hard work. One, State Representative Denise
Grimsley, endeavors in all her legislative ac-
tivities to consider our special rural needs.
The other is my father Vance Storter, a
Glades County Commissioner 1977-1982
who taught me that elected officials must be
directly responsive to constituents, and per-
sonally accountable for ALL actions, wheth-


er in official capacity or in private.
My slogan: "If we pay an ounce of princi-
ple for a pound of acceptance, we get badly


cheated."


Please vote August 24 for me to continue
serving you. Request ABSENTEE Ballot at

Deer hunters will need new


permits for new season


Fund supports Florida's
deer herds

Beginning with the upcoming 2010-2011
hunting season, anyone hunting deer in Flor-
ida will need a deer permit. The new permit
costs $5 and is available now for purchase.
Those with a Sportsman's License, Gold
Sportsman's License, 64 or Older Sports-
man's License, Military Gold Sportsman's
License, Lifetime Hunting License or Life-
time Sportsman's License will not need to
purchase the new deer permit, because it
already is included in each of these licenses,
even if they were purchased before July 1.
However, the deer permit is not included
with a hunting license, combination hunt-
ing/freshwater fishing license, combination
hunting/freshwater/saltwater license or a
five-year hunting license.
Anyone hunting deer with any of these
licenses must also buy the $5 deer permit to


legally hunt deer this season.
Funds generated by the new permit will
be earmarked to support deer management
and deer research.
Funds also will support ongoing efforts
to monitor Florida's deer herd for Chronic
Wasting Disease (CWD).
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission approved a "Strategic Plan
for Deer Management in Florida: 2008-2018"
in February 2008.
Critical to the success of this plan is es-
tablishing deer management units and a
harvest-reporting system; both have been
identified as top priorities by the agency and
its stakeholders to better manage deer.
People can purchase all permits and re-
lated licenses from their county tax collec-
tor, retail outlets that sell fishing and hunting
supplies, online at www.fl.wildlifelicense.
corn or by calling toll-free 888-HUNT-FLOR-
IDA (486-8356).


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) has issued an ex-
ecutive order, which will close zones 3 and
4 of the Stairsteps Unit of the Big Cypress
Wildlife Management Area to the harvest of
deer for the 2010-2011 hunting season.
The order will be effective prior to the
archery season and will remain in place for
one year.
The FWC, in cooperation with the Na-
tional Park Service (NPS), continues to mon-
itor the deer population in the Big Cypress
National Preserve.
Biologists from both agencies have ob-
served a dramatic decline in the number of
deer in zones 3 and 4 of the Stairsteps Unit
(south and west of Loop Road).
During recent surveys, when biologists
flew over the area to count deer, very few


were observed.
This trend also has been reported by
hunters using the area. The reason for the
decline is unknown, but a joint taskforce is
investigating potential causes such as dis-
ease, predation, hydrological changes and
other changes in habitat.
Access to all areas will remain open, sub-
ject to NPS regulations, and all other hunting
will be permitted.
The FWC and NPS are committed to ad-
dressing the decline of deer in this area and
ask that hunters bring live-weight-harvested
deer from zones 1 and 2 of the Stairsteps
Unit and adjacent units to a FWC check sta-
tion so they may be examined.
Hunters may call the FWC's Naples Field
office at 239-417-6352 for directions and in-
formation on check stations.

tice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the bme of filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition within fourteen days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of
that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) un-

whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding,
in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

Bridge
Continued From Page 1
A Variable Message Board (VMB) at
Fort Denaud Bridge may be misinterpreted
by some truckers. Although the sign reads
"Trucks over 5 tons use detour SR 29N," it is
intended that large heavy truck use the de-
tour for SR 29, not use SR 29.
Ms. Tower also said DOT is looking into
some signage on CR 720 in Muse for traffic
headed east. Of course, some folks not fa-


miliar with the area just get lost in trying to
find the Fort Denaud Bridge.
The LaBelle Chamber of Commerce Ex-
ecutive Secretary Sara Townsend said she
has received a number of complaints about
a lack of signage. However, she feels often
its just that people are not paying attention.
One Naples motorist just simply did not see
the detour signs on SR 29S, she said.
All the traffic and road noise is also trying
for residents used to a pretty quiet neighbor-
hood. Greg Miners said the traffic disturbs
his son's sleep at night and wakes him up
early in the morning. It also makes pulling


out of your driveway a challenge, he added.
The sheriff's office conducted a survey
of traffic on the 2600 Block of Fort Denaud
Road. A radar unit mounted on a pole has
provided an overview of traffic going over
the old swing bridge. On Saturday, July 10,
5,442 vehicles passed through the Fort De-
naud Road area in a 24-hour period. Chief
Deputy Kevin Nelson said the minimum
speed of vehicles was 11 mph, the maximum
73 mph. The speed limit through there is 35
mph. The average speed was 38.8 mph; the
50th percentile was 39 mph; and the 85th
percentile was 44 mph.


Figures for the days leading up to July 10
are very similar. However, on July 7, there
were just 2,562 vehicles traveling that road.
Minimum speed was 11 mph; maximum 67
mph and average speed 38.9 mph. The 50th
percentile was 39 mph and the 85th percen-
tile 44 mph.
Ms. Tower said DOT is willing to listen to
complaints or issues. She said no boat traffic
has been affected by the closing at this time.
About midway through the closure, she said
work is going well on track for completion
August 8 and that the public's patience is ap-
preciated.


CCA
Continued From Page 1
According to her, the transition is coming
along, and while there have been some staff-
ing changes she could not immediately
speak to this there is also a new push to
implement programs which had been cut
from the facility in the past, and to imple-
ment new programs aimed at rehabilitating
the inmate population at the facility.
The company has either brought in or is
advertising to hire treatment counselors, an
art and music director, horticulture teacher,
as well as staff to direct employment, edu-
cational, vocational and mental health pro-
gramming.
"We're diligent in hiring those positions,"
said Dr. Bedard, who added that CCA is
inheriting capable employees from GEO.
"These are long-term employees you don't
often see in this business."

impaired and track and

Beginning this year, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC)
will not mail quota permits to successful
applicants for general gun, archery, muz-
zleloading gun, family, youth, airboat and
track as they have in the past.
Instead, the FWC is allowing hunters,
who are awarded permits in the random
drawings, to print the quota permits by
going to www.fl.wildlifelicense.com and
choosing "Limited Entry/Quota then Pick-
up/Pay for Awarded Permit."
For detailed instructions on how to do
this, go to MyFWC.com/Hunting and click
"Limited Entry Hunts," then "How to Print
Your Limited Entry Hunt Permit Directly
from the Website."
Hunters not having access to the Inter-
net or a printer can pick up their awarded
quota permits at license agents or county
tax collectors' offices.


Bedard has nearly 30 years experience
in corrections, and has in her career taught
college students, served as the state's first fe-
male deputy secretary for the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections and earned a Ph. D. in
social work from Florida State University.
"My priority is to run a safe and secure
institution," she said, describing herself as a
very hands-on administrator who "manages
by walking and talking."
On Sunday the company hosted a picnic,
inviting staff and community members to
attend. Dr. Bedard is convinced that Moore
Haven will be a fitting home.
"It's a cute little town," she said. "I really
like it and I love being near the water."
She gushed about the town to her hus-
band after recently walking in to the city hall
offices in Moore Haven and hearing some-
one say, "Hey, Laura!"
"I'm a city girl so this is really different,"
she said. "The hospitality has been awe-
some."


But, be prepared to give to the clerk,
the four-digit hunt number of the hunt you
were awarded. Hunt numbers are listed on
the quota worksheets.
To check drawing results and permit
availability, hunters may again go to MyF-
WC.com/Hunting and click "Limited Entry
Hunts."
Permits issued during phase I or II can
be downloaded or picked up any time be-
fore the hunt ends.
However, if you obtain a quota permit
during the first-come, first-served phase III,
make sure to print it out at the end of the
transaction.
If you go through a license agent or tax
collector during this period, you will re-
ceive your quota permit from the clerk.
The exception is that mobility-impaired
quota hunt permits will continue to be
mailed to successful applicants.
Also, the legal game tags used in South
Florida during track and airboat quota
hunts, which are still required, will con-
tinue to be mailed to the awarded permit
holders.
