Lake Okeechobee conditions have slightly improved
Wildlife rebounds yet water
quality is still poor .....


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
Conditions of Lake Okeechobee have im-
proved but there is still a ways to go for the
Lake to get a clean bill of health, the County
Coalition for the Responsible Management
of Lake Okeechobee was told Friday, July 30
at their meeting in Okeechobee.
Don Fox, biologist with the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commission re-
ported some rebound in the fish populations
on the lake. He said the FWC restocked the
lake with 425,000 bass fish in the past two
years.
"The lake is in the best shape I've seen
it for 15 years," he told the coalition. He ex-
plained that bass are survivors and will basi-
cally eat anything.
He said the key to improving the fishery
is maintaining and then expanding the habi-
tat that is available for fish.
Mr. Fox said another positive trend is they
are seeing more birds around the Lake in-
cluding the endangered snail kite.

The beautiful view of Lake Okeechobee from Glades County improves as condi-
tions in the lake slowly but surely take a turn for the better.
He said birds are finding food and are at- in the Speckled Perch population due to a

Local pastor and his wife share 50 years


By Toni Joseph
Special to INI Florida
After dating for six months, two young
people eloped to South Shore, KY, to com-
mit themselves to each other "for better, for
worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and
in health." The date was July 30, 1960. Fifty
years ago.
Seems like a lifetime ago when you look
at the date; but it was only a moment ago
when you witness the love still between
these two "young people."
The pastor of Lake Harbor Community
Methodist Church (29 W Corkscrew Blvd,
Lake Harbor), R. Rod Ruby and wife Lida
were honorees of an anniversary celebra-
tion given at Lake Harbor C. .ni ,init,.- NM, l,.

vice.
The bride's sister, Carol Damron, sang
Lida's favorite song as her special gift, and
their daughter, Kathy Ruby, read the scrip-
ture, 1 Corinthians 13, 1-13, Pastor Rod's fa-
vorite bible verse.
After the service, guests gathered in the
fellow- ship hall for a sit-down

memory lane. Letters from friends and fam-
ily containing memories from days gone by
were read, with lots of laughter shared by
the guests.
Each of the beautifully decorated tables
contained a photo from the travels of Pastor
Rod and Lida. Stories were told about each
photo, ranging from the styles of the 60s, to
the time they joined the circus, to their 40th
wedding anniversary. It was quite an array
of photographic history.
Pastor Rod sang one of his favorite songs
to his bride, his voice sometimes cracking
from emotion. The bride and groom cut
their tiered anniversary cake which was
shared among the guests. This was the first
wedding cake they ever had.
The congregation presented Pastor Rod
and Lida each with a stained glass frame to
be displayed in the church's windows de-
picting their individual contributions to the
church. Hers being music and involvement
with all areas as needed. His being as future
author, pastor, leader and friend.
This writer was one of the guests, having
only met Pastor Rod and Lida a few months
ago, attending services with a friend. The
love and fellowship among the friends and
family, the love between these two special
people, is something I will hold onto for a
very long time.
These two "young people" are the epito-
me of the commitment of marriage Love is
patient, love is kind, love rejoices, love pro-
tects, love trusts, love hopes, love preserves,
love never fails!

Sales tax holiday is around the corner


Exemption will help reduce
the cost of buying school
supplies
By Juan Lopez
INI Florida
From 12:01 a.m. Friday, Aug. 13th till
12 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 15, 2010, there
will be a sales tax exemption in ef-
fect.
This sales tax exemption will apply to
the purchase of books, clothing and certain
school supplies.
To be exact, it will apply to every book
or item of clothing that is selling for $50 or
less and to each eligible school supply that is
selling for $10 or less.
However, the exemption does not apply


to books or to any item
of clothing selling for
more than $50, or to any
school supply item sell-
ing for more than $10.
The exemption will
still apply no matter how
many items are sold on
the same invoice to a
customer.
Coupons can also be
applied to any purchase
to reduce the overall
cost but that will remain
at the discretion of the
seller.
Some examples of what the sales tax ex-
emption applies to are:
*"Book" means a set of printed sheets
bound together and published in a volume.
The term "book" does not include newspa-


pers, magazines, other
periodicals, or audio
books.
Books are different
from periodicals in that
books, in addition to the
above, are also generally
identified with an Inter-
national Standard Book
Number (ISBN), while
periodicals are dated
and generally have an is-
sue number, but not an
ISBN.
"Clothing" means
any article of wearing
apparel, including all footwear (except skis,
swim fins, roller blades, and skates) intended
to be worn on or about the human body.
However, "clothing" does not include
watches, watchbands, jewelry, umbrellas,


handkerchiefs, or sporting equipment. A
representative list of items is included in this
publication.
*School supplies: pens, pencils, erasers,
crayons, notebooks, notebook filler paper,
legal pads, binders, lunch boxes, construc-
tion paper, markers, folders, poster board,
composition books, poster paper, scissors,
cellophane tape, glue, paste, rulers, com-
puter disks, protractors, compasses, and
calculators.
The sales tax exemption does not apply
to items sold in theme parks, public lodgings
or airports.
So, do take advantage of this tax holiday
by buying all that you need for your children
for the upcoming school year. Don't forget
to splurge a little for yourself as well.

of items, visit www.myflorida.com/dor.

USDA announces deadline to apply for payments


USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) Admin-
istrator Jonathan Coppess today announced
that producers have until Thursday, Sept. 30,
2010, to submit an application for payment
under the 2008 Supplemental Revenue As-
sistance Payments (SURE) Program. SURE
provides financial assistance for crop pro-
duction and or quality losses due to a natural
disaster.
"We want producers to be aware of this


deadline so they are certain to visit their FSA
county office to file a 2008 SURE program
payment application no later than Septem-
ber, 30, 2010," said Coppess.
"It is important to finish the current
2008 SURE program sign-up because the
authority for the Recovery Act supplement
for payment benefits expires at the end of
the current fiscal year and the Department
of Agriculture will then start the 2009 SURE


sign-up application process."
FSA began accepting and processing
2008 SURE program applications in January
2010, and the American Recovery and Rein-
vestment Act of 2009 (RecoveryAct) allowed
for a one-time increase in the calculation of
2008 SURE payments that are filed by Sept.
30, 2010. Producers who do not file a 2008
SURE program payment application by Sept.
30, 2010, will not be considered eligible for


2008 SURE program payments.
Producers are encouraged to file an ap-
plication for 2008 SURE payments regard-
less of whether they think they may or may
not qualify. An electronic SURE program
payment calculator and additional informa-
tion regarding the SURE program is located
at http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/sure, or pro-
ducers can contact their local county FSA
office.

Moye Lynwood Bishop
CLEWISTON Moye Lynwood Bishop, fifth
generation Floridian, born in Gainesville, Fla.,
on March 12, 1921, to parents Ralph Moye and
Mary Daughtry Bishop, passed away on July 28,
2010.
His parents and grandfather were pioneers of
the Glades area and in his early childhood he
lived in Sebring and Lake Harbor. While his fa-
ther started sugar farming, Moye at age 12, with
the help of his mother, started an egg farm and
sold eggs around the lake every day before
school.

the current Lykes property. He graduated from
Pahokee High School's class of 1941 and went
to the University of FL for a short time before
transferring to the Embry Riddle School of Avia-
tion. Here he became a Master Mechanic of Air-
craft. He was immediately employed by Pan
American World Airways during WWII in the
development of their freight efforts throughout
Central and South America. He later became a
manager of the Belem Air Station in Brazil and
overhauled allied bombers for the war effort.
After the war he came home to the Glades
and worked for the family lumber yard and con-
crete business. On July 25, 1948 he married
Marianne Jones and became a grower for US
Sugar, harvesting his first crop in 1949. Moye
was a grower for US Sugar until his passing.

Restoration momentum


continues with Agreement


State Farm may be changing hands,

but not the same great service


Pilot project to help
preserve clean water for
Everglades National Park

Building on historic agreements to ad-
vance construction on Everglades resto-
ration projects, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD) Govern-
ing Board and the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers recently approved another key
Project Partnership Agreement to test
technology for preserving clean water in
Everglades National Park. If proven effec-
tive, technology developed
during the pilot project
will significantly benefit
Everglades restoration and
water quality improvement
efforts in the park as well as
beyond its boundaries.
"Working with our fed-
eral partners, the State of
Florida and the District have
been leaders in developing
the tools and technology
to restore America's Ever-
glades," said SFWMD Gov-
erning Board Chairman
Eric Buermann. "This pilot
project promises to signifi-
cantly advance restoration
efforts in Everglades Na-
tional Park and will provide
valuable knowledge to benefit the broad
effort to revive the River of Grass."
Retaining clean water in the Everglades
requires controlling and managing seep-
age of water from the wetlands. This is
integral to success of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan (CERP). The
L-31 North (L-30) Seepage Management
pilot project will help to identify the appro-
priate technology that will prevent clean
water from seeping out of Everglades Na-
tional Park through South Florida's porous
underground rock layers. A second goal is
to help retain clean water in Water Conser-
vation Area 3B in Miami-Dade County
an area of the remnant Everglades, which
has the highest seepage rate in the area.
"The pilot project was developed with
extensive input from the public and nu-
merous stakeholders," said Ken Ammon,
P.E., SFWMD Deputy Executive Director
- Everglades Restoration and Capital Proj-
ects. "Experience gained from this project
will have far-reaching benefits and moves
us closer to achieving restoration goals to
protect the Everglades and South Florida's
environment."
The pilot project will test two structural
seepage reduction technologies specifi-
cally, steel sheet pile and a slurry wall
while also testing the ability to seasonally
manage seepage flows through pumping
operations to create a "hydraulic barrier."
"Reducing seepage from the Everglades
is vital to its restoration, but accomplishing
this is no easy task. It's not simply a mat-
ter of installing a wall that stops all easterly


flow out of the park," said Stu Appelbaum,
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville
District Deputy for Restoration Program
Management. "We have to manage and
control for variable flow rates via a system
of features. That's why this pilot test is so
important. We're committed to protecting
and restoring the Everglades, so we will
look at how different strategies perform
before we proceed with larger scale imple-
mentation of any strategy."
The slurry wall technology is similar
to the technology now being used by the
Corps to reduce seepage from portions of
the Herbert Hoover Dike surrounding Lake


Okeechobee.
The Project Partnership Agreement
allows the Corps to award a contract for
construction and testing of the pilot proj-
ect, at an estimated cost of approximately
$9.3 million using federal stimulus funding.
The effort was also made possible by the
landmark August 2009 Master Agreement
between the SFWMD and the Corps.
Laying the groundwork for Everglades
restoration for decades to come, the Mas-
ter Agreement serves as an umbrella ac-
cord between the state and federal part-
ners that governs all CERP projects. In
turn, each CERP project requires a Project
Partnership Agreement. The Master Agree-
ment was also an essential step necessary
for the Corps to begin restoration construc-
tion with an initial infusion in 2009 of ap-
proximately $115 million in congressional
appropriations.
The Comprehensive Everglades Res-
toration Plan (CERP) is a framework for
restoring, protecting and preserving the
water resources of central and southern
Florida. CERP is a 50-50 partnership be-
tween the State of Florida and the federal
government. The State of Florida and the
South Florida Water Management District
have invested approximately $2.4 billion
toward this effort, including approximately
$300 million in construction. Through June
30, 2010, 60 percent or approximately
234,853 acres of the estimated lands
needed to implement CERP have been ac-
quired.

U.S. Sugar's railroad recycling attracts film crew


Railcars were in service for
more than 40 years

Judy Sanchez
U.S. Sugar
Two sugarcane railcars were totally de-
molished in about two hours as U.S. Sugar's
railroad recycling efforts were filmed for a
documentary that will air internationally.
The scrap metal and steel from the railcars
will be transported to an industrial mega-
shredder at the Port of Tampa for further
processing, eventually becoming new steel
products.
A crew from SSP productions, an inde-
pendent production company based in Or-
lando, Florida, was contracted to document
the demolition of the two railcars along the
local company's railroad siding on Francisco
Street.
Onesteel Recycling Tampa, which has
the mega-shredder, was integral to the film-
ing process.
"Recycling makes good business sense,
not just good environmental policy," said
Judy Sanchez, director of corporate commu-
nications. "U.S. Sugar has always scrapped
and recycled railcars that can no longer be
repaired or rebuilt and used for hauling
cane.
We remove any parts that can be re-used
in our railroad operations and then sell what
remains for scrap."
In addition to railcars, U.S. Sugar's rail-
road also recycles railroad track, spikes and


in length and customized for U.S. Sugar's
internal industrial railroad that transports
harvested sugarcane from U.S. Sugar's cane
fields to its Clewiston sugar manufacturing
facility.
A major part of the boxcar customiza-
tion is the construction of three swinging
side doors for ease in off-loading sugarcane
at the mill.
A local demolition and scrapping com-
pany from LaBelle, Ashley and Sons, per-
formed the demolition. The scrapped ma-
terials will be further cut down at Ashley &
Sons' local facility and trucked to the Port
of Tampa, where the steel and other metals
will be separated and melted down.
This material is sent to steel mills from
Jacksonville to Pittsburg where it is manu-
factured into new steel plate, structure, pipe
and other products. This recycling process
takes less than 60 days from start to finish.
According to owner Ashley George, the
Caterpillar 322C Shear is able to make pre-
cise cuts in the steel railcars and tear them
down into manageable pieces.
The large machine also uses its steel
shears or pincers to stack the metal pieces
into neat piles for later removal.
As shown in the attached demolition
photos, Car #281 was built in 1929 by the
MAGOR car builders of New York.
This car was made from a special design
submitted by U.S. Sugar. The car design en-
ables the entire railcar to be tipped on its
side with three doors that swing open to ef-
ficiently dump the sugarcane.
About 40 years ago, a design change ex-


V


Photo/Judy Sanchez
Complete demolition of the 20-ton railcars took less than an hour each. Result-
ing scrap metal will be shredded, melted down and recycled into new steel
products.


Prices for scrap metal, which fluctuate
based on the scrap metals market, were cur-
rently running about $220/ton.
The axels and wheels or "trucks" as they
are known in the railroad industry are re-
cycled within U.S. Sugar's internal railroad
operations.
The trucks from cars #281 and #531
were newer, roller-bearing wheels, so they
will be used to upgrade railcars still using


older, friction-bearing wheels. A new set of
trucks currently cost about $4,600.
"It was sad to see a 60-year old railcar
with such history behind it cut to pieces in
less than an hour, but it also was exciting
to know that the metal will be recycled and
perhaps return to U.S. Sugar in a new form
somewhere down the road," Sanchez said.


Photo/Judy Sanchez
U.S. Sugar railcars #521 (circa 1941) and #281 (circa 1929) are being taken
out of service on U.S. Sugar's internal sugarcane transportation railroad. The
axels and wheels will be removed and the two cars demolished and the materi-
als recycled.


Sanchez said that U.S. Sugar's railroad
has been in operation since the late 1920s
and its recycling efforts go back just about
as far.
Most of U.S. Sugar's fleet of 950 sugar-
cane railcars already had been recycled from
older boxcars that were retired from service
on the country's major railroads.
The boxcars are cut down about 15 feet


tended the top half of the railcars to hold
more cane due to the planned conversion
from hand cutting to machine.
Car #531 also was built to U.S. Sugar's
specifications in 1941 by MAGOR. It went
through the same overhaul and top exten-
sion as Car #281.
Sanchez said sugarcane railcars typically
weigh 20 tons each and net approximately
15 tons of scrap materials.

Brighton Warriors win title at Global World Series


Hard work and training
pays off for young players

Charles M. Murphy
INI FLorida
It has been quite a summer for the Brigh-
ton Warriors baseball travel team. The War-
riors recently won their division at the Global
World Series played at ESPN Wide World of
Sports in Orlando.
The 11 and under team had a mix of play-
ers from Brighton Seminole Reservation,
Okeechobee and Lake Placid.
The team includes Mason Joyner,
Chase Quesinberry, Elijah Finny, Jarred
Morgan,Layton Thomas. Angel Ojeda, Alex
Lopez, Daniel Simons, Robby Hays, Ty-
ler Farmer, Joshua Madrigal and Branston
Smith.
Coaches are Marcel Lopez, Greg Joyner
and head coach Dave Simons. Coach Simon
said winning a world series title was a pretty
impressive feat for his team.
"They played very good baseball and
played some older boys. The team stepped


it up when they needed to."
Simons wanted to thank the community
for their support of the travel team.
He noted the team held some fund raisers
outside Publix and Winn Dixie in Okeecho-
bee and were overwhelmed with the sup-
port they received.
"The support in was phenomenal," the
coach said.
The team also played in a tournament in
Pace, Florida from July 12 thru 17 and fin-
ished sixth out of 20 teams that competed.
They played in temperatures that reached
107 degrees and played all star teams from
Arkansas Alabama Georgia Mississippi
and Louisiana.
Chase Quesinberry batted .444, Jared
Morgan batted .476, Tyler Finney .400 and
Joyner .375 during the World Series. Thom-
as batted .600 and drove in a team leading
12 runs during the Series.
"I felt what these kids did was a great ac-
complishment.
To win a prestigious tournament is re-
ally a great thing for these young people,"
Simons added.

Study shows that smaller hospitals can do big things


Can provide safe, quality
surgical care comparable to
larger counterparts

Hendry Regional Medical Center
Can smaller hospitals provide the same
safe and high quality surgical care as larger
facilities? According to a study conducted
by the University of Louisville, the answer is
"yes."
"Smaller hospitals can provide a more
personal touch, a hometown feel where a
patient is not just a number," said Glenda
Wilson of Hendry Regional Medical Center.
Smaller, rural hospitals may be quicker
and more efficient at implementing surgi-
cal safety initiatives than their larger, urban
counterparts. These smaller facilities are
capable of providing a standard of surgical
care that is at par with major hospitals that
provide a comprehensive array of care ser-
vices, according to an 18-month series of
studies led by researchers from the Univer-
sity of Louisville Department of Surgery.
"The quality and standard of care in ru-
ral and small-town America is an impor-
tant issue that gets a lot of attention in the
mainstream media these days, and research
efforts to measure and enhance surgical
quality have largely omitted smaller town
hospitals that care for a very high proportion
of the American population," said Hiram C.


Polk, M.D., former chair of the University of
Louisville Department of Surgery, and the
Ben A. Reid, Sr. Professor of Surgery at the
University of Louisville (U of L). "These stud-
ies sought to address some of these previ-
ously unaddressed issues."
The results of these studies were pub-
lished in the July issue of the American Jour-
nal of Surgery.
The investigators used the surgical safety
tool "the expanded surgical time out" as a
template by which to collect their data, Polk
said. This is a method by which all partici-
pants in a surgical procedure, including, in
some cases, the patient, take a moment to
clarify critical details about the procedure
that is about to take place.
"The basic surgical time-out includes
identifying the correct patient, correct sur-
gery and correct site," said Susan Galandiuk,
M.D., professor of surgery at the U of L and
senior investigator on the first study, which
served to define the current culture regard-
ing surgical safety and quality initiatives.
"The expanded time-out looks at preopera-
tive timing and choice of antibiotics and dis-
continuation of postoperative prophylactic
antibiotics, additional criteria for diabetics or
other ill patients, or factors that come into
play if a surgery will last longer than two
hours, such as measuring core temperature,
monitoring blood glucose level and a clear
decision about continuing beta blocker
drugs postoperatively if they have been used


pre-operatively."
The availability of blood for transfusion
in a surgery and any special instruments
needed also were helpful to include on the
checklist, Galandiuk said.
The studies looked at how quickly the
smaller hospitals four in Kentucky and one
in Indiana adopted quality improvement
measures, as evidenced by the implementa-
tion of surgical time-out; whether surgical
specialists were committed to accepting the
quality and safety parameters outlined in the
expanded surgical time-out checklist; and
how the payment structure may affect qual-
ity and safety measures.
Major surgeries examined included hip
and knee replacements, hysterectomy, colon
resections, and hernia repairs. In all, 2,300
surgeries were examined. The researchers
found that all specialties had extremely high
rates of adherence to timely administration
of prophylactic antibiotics within the recom-
mended one hour before surgery.
"We also found that, although almost
one quarter to one third of patients were
awake during the surgical time-out, surgi-
cal time-out was implemented in more than
97 percent of all cases among the different


sub-specialties," Polk said. The researchers
also found that all specialties successfully
avoided hypothermia in most cases, and
gynecologists, especially, made appropriate
choices regarding antibiotics in a majority of
cases.
"Our research showed that clinicians in
these rural hospitals showed an extremely
high standard of care to their patients, equal
to that given at urban and tertiary counter-
parts," Polk said. "The hospitals' willingness
to commit to participating in these studies
with the goal of better patient care should be
commended as well."
Approximately 40 percent of Americans
get their surgical care in centers that are not
large, urban or tertiary care facilities and the
willingness and ability of these institutions
to implement quality and safety measures is
incredibly important, Polk said.
"These studies, looking at representative
sites in Kentucky and Indiana demonstrated
that these facilities can have the resources
necessary, human and otherwise, to provide
high quality, safe surgical care, and the comrn-
mitment to doing so," he said.

Religious Columns


Invisible Gifts
Rev. Samuel Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church
One of the members of the Church I
serve pointed out a change in translations,
when the revision of a newer credal state-
ment went from "visible and invisible" to
"seen and unseen."
It didn't seem like any major issue but
we got to talking
about it.
"Seen" re-
lates to things -
that are tan-
gible, touch-
able, mate-
rial, within
the human
spectrum of
perception.
"Unseen"
means that
they are out
of sight; may-
be around
the corner or
around the
world, but Rev Thomas.
they are still
there.
"Visible"
also means the same thing but "invisible"
has another meaning to it. There are many
things that are "invisible" and never will
be seen.
Take faith, happiness, love, hope, and on
and on; invisible but are every bit a part of
human experience and very and never to be
seen.
I began to think that the revisionists
succumbed to the trends in our "modern"
world; things have to be measurable or tan-
gible to have any meaning.
Of course, this is not so. One of the clergy
who followed me in a former Church appar-
ently had a rift with several members of the
congregation over something "seen."
The question arose whether a collection
plate should sit flat on the table attached to
the wall where it rested or be placed upright,
leaning against the wall and being more ver-
tical than horizontal.
I thought "Oh no, that's ridiculous! Take a
vote, for Heaven's sake and don't sweat the
small stuff!"
I met him later and his first words after
I introduced myself were "Do you want it
back?" My answer was in the negative but I
explained that it wasn't because I wouldn't
go back, it was because I was doing other
things in my life at that mornent.
It was obvious; problems weren't about
a plate; "seen" or "unseen" but about lead-
ership style, matters of who decides what,
issues of something that was really "invis-
ible."
My successor pursued a career as a chap-
lain when he left that Church. The English
interpretation of Paul's Epistle to the Colos-
sians speaks of the Lord; "He is the image
of the invisible God, the firstborn over all
creation. For by Him all things were created:
visible and invisible... (chapter 1, verses 15-
16)."


There! It's more than just seen or un-
seen; the full richness of life, the many parts
of it we share that cannot be quantified, the
whole range of creation; God created these
things too.
Older translations are not always the best;
we learn from discoveries, the study of his-
tory and languages what was meant by the
words that are sometimes used in a different
context than they are today.
Likewise, each language has words that
have no equivalents in some other languag-
es and it takes some digging and searching
to find out what actually is meant.
It isn't necessarily that "older is better"
but thinking about what we mean. We don't
seem to do as much of that these days as our
ancestors did. We need to be respectful!

Final Chapters
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Those were the times!
We could eat like a horse and not look
like one.
All of the school teachers were older than
we were, and
professional
athletes were
about the age
of our older
brothers.
Life was
an open high-
way.
Then came
the subtle .
hints of mor-
tality. The
neig h bor -
hood kids call
you "Mister"
or "Ma'amn."
Your par-
ents start act- Pastor Hicks.
ing like your
children. Your
carpool asks you why you squint when you
read road signs.
And then there is the tell-tale mirror.
What was tight now sags. What once swung
now bounces.
Everything hurts when you wake up.
What doesn't hurt, doesn't work. The dawn-
ing of old age.
The first pages of the final chapter of our
life. And with every new pill we take, we
are reminded that old age is another pill we
have to swallow.
Ponce De Leon didn't find the Fountain of
Youth, and neither will we.
The calendar pages still turn, the clock
still ticks, and the body still gets older. So
what are we to do?
Just because we are near the top of the
hill doesn't mean we've passed our peak.
We need to dare to reclaim the enthusiasm
for life we had in our childhood. The wisest
are not the ones with the most years in their
lives, but the most life in their years.
Our final chapters can be our best. Our fi-
nal song can be our greatest. Our final works
can be our most magnificent.
Throughout the Scriptures, God's oldest


always seem to be first team material. Look
at Abraham and Sarah, Noah and Moses.
And there are many more. God uses the
chronologically gifted.
Remember Anna?
She was in her eighties when she prayed
for the Messiah and had enough vision to rec-
ognize him when He came. Speaking of vi-
sion, at the age of 95, J.C. Penny proclaimed,
"My eyesight might be getting weaker, but
my vision is increasing.
As we get older, our vision should be
getting better not our vision of earth and
earthly things, but our vision of heaven and
heavenly things.
Those who have spent their life look-
ing for heaven gain a skip in their step as it
draws closer. Age is a mile marker for them,
a gentle reminder that home has never been
so near.
Until that time, it would do us well to fol-
low the parting encouragement of Michelan-
gelo.
When Michelangelo died, a piece of
paper was found in his studio, a handwrit-
ten note to his apprentice: "Draw Antonio,
draw, and do not waste time."
Good advice. Time slips, days pass, years
fade.
Life ends.
What we came to do must be done while
there is time.
Let it not be said of us, "The harvest has
ended, the summer is past. And we are not
saved." (Jeremiah 8:20).

runs through 2:00 p.m. on Thursday, August
12.
The Moore Haven branch is located at
24704 US Hwy. 27. LaBelle's
First Bank branch is located
at 301 W Highway 80. Drop
boxes will be placed at the
Moore Haven and LaBelle
First Bank branches, and
donors will be able to drop
off items through Thursday.
For donors with a larger
number of items, Goodwill
will have a donation van
on-site at the Moore Haven
branch from 9:00 a.m. until
2:00 p.m. on Thursday.


Goodwill Secure Shred will also have
consoles on site for drop-off paper shred-
ding. Secure Shred securely processes sensi-
tive documents and other materials, such as
newspaper, for numerous area businesses
and agencies. Secure Shred also provides
jobs for local individuals with severe disabili-
ties.
The donation drive was the idea of First
Bank branch manager Belinda Rodriguez,
who is a member of Goodwill's Board of
Directors.
"Belinda really wants to get the commu-
nity more involved with Goodwill," explains
Laura Alford, Goodwill's Director of Donor
Development.
'And we're trying to expand our services


further into Hendry and Glades counties, so
this donation drive was a natural match."
Donations and paper items will also be
accepted at First Bank's Riverdale branch
in East Fort Myers. Last year, in Southwest
Florida alone, Goodwill's Retail and Dona-
tion Centers received more than 22 million
pounds of donated goods.
Revenue from the sale of these donations
helps Goodwill provide job training and
placement, along with other social services,
for people with disabilities and other disad-
vantages in our community.

tinue into the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
Rivers. Martin County Commissioner Sarah
Heard said the St. Lucie River was in terrible
shape this spring.
"Our health department has posted nu-
merous warnings to tell residents to avoid all
contact with the water because the quality is
so awful. Not much has changed from our
perspective regrettably," she said.
Water officials said rainfall has been near
average or slightly below average for the
rainy season.
The lake levels reached a high of 15.2 feet
but through releases and evaporation has
dropped to below 13.9 feet.
Lt. Michael Kinard of the United States
Corps of Engineers gave an update on the
Herbert Hoover Dike restoration.
He said seven miles of the dike near Port
Mayaca and near Belle Glade have been
completed. They will begin work on 7.3
miles from Sand Cut to Pahokee soon.
Lt. Kinard agreed that 76 percent of the
releases from the lake go into the St. Lucie
River. "I'm not saying its fair." he explained.
"It's just I have no other place to put it."
About a foot of water has been released
from Lake Okeechobee through pulse re-
leases in the past few months.


In other issues that affect the lake, some Goodwill
area counties including Palm Beach and St. GOodw ill
Lucie have considered fertilizer ordinances Continued From Page 1
that are considered environmentally friend-


Palm Beach County recently approved a
one year moratorium on land mining in the
county.
Pinar Balci of the South Florida Water
Management District said although phos-
phorus loads continue to be high in Lake
Okeechobee, she has seen some positive
trends.
Legacy phosphorus, or nutrients already
in the lake continue to be a problem.
She noted certain chemical treatments
and wetland treatment technologies are be-
ing studied to determine how effective they
might be in the removal of phosphorus.
"The challenge we face is big. We are do-
ing the best that we can," she told the coali-
tion.
Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah
said the back pumping of water from the
sugar cane fields have a great impact on the
amount of phosphorus in Lake Okeecho-
bee.
"Why compound the problem with back
pumping in the lake?" he asked. "Why not
come up with more storage options?"
