SWAT, Partnership Hold


Town Hall Meeting

Drug Free Week Presentation Was Informative and New IL
Partners Added


BY JUAN LOPEZ
Glades County Democrat
Though having a slightly under par turnout,
the Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT)
meeting still generated ideas and informed those
who attended the meeting on Nov. 9 at the Moore
Haven High School auditorium.
SWAT organizers reached out to the schools,
announcing the program, but a mistake in sched
uling had the school's Turkey Shoot happening at
the same time as the SWAT Meeting.
The meeting was a two-part session with a
presentation for parents first and a question and
answer session for parents, guest experts and
SWAT student afterwards.
Special guest speaker Marc Fomby, CEO of
FTC Prevention Services, gave a presentation. He
is giving a series of presentations for Glades and
Hendry County Schools.
His last trip to the area was two years ago and
he was invited back by Valerie James, Tobacco
Prevention Specialist for Hendry County. His goal
is to keep the awareness level up of all the dan
gers of alcohol, drugs and smoking.
"I'm happy to be back in the area with new
topics of discussion," said Marc Fomby. "I love do
ing what I do; no matter the size of the crowd."
His topic for the evening was targeted at in


forming parents of the dangerous games children
play and how they can lead to accidental death
of children.
This session was strictly for adults as most of
the topics discussed were explicit in nature. Some
of the topics discussed were code words for drugs
and other addictive substances, issues of a sex
ual nature and the very real child victims of the
"Choking Game."
The "Choking Game" is a deadly game where
children will intentionally choke themselves until
they achieve a euphoric high due to the lack of
oxygen.
Another use of the game is when one child
will choke another on a dare to see who chickens
out first.
The dangers of this game are quite obvious
because one can pass out while still having pres
sure around the throat; which can lead to acci
dental strangulation.
Many children have done this to themselves
and have accidentally strangled themselves.
When they are found by their parents, it is mis
taken for a suicide.
Other guests in attendance for the meeting
were the doctors Haitham and Ayman Khaki DP,
pharmacists that serve Hendry County and Steve

Operation Medicine Cabinet
The time has come to clean out the medicine
cabinet. Home medicine cabinets are the number
one source for prescription drug abuse among
youth?
Florida teens abuse prescription pain relievers
more than any other illicit drug e .. I ... i 11 1 ii11 1.


according to the 2008 Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey.
And, according to the United Way Commission
on Substance Abuse, prescription drug abuse is
skyrocketing. This fact has fed the increasing rates
of opiate-related deaths in recent years.
Now there is something you can do to help
reduce the risk of prescription drugs falling into
the wrong hands. On Saturday, Nov. 13, you can
turn in your expired, unused or unwanted pre
scription drugs -no questions asked -to one
of the local Operation Medicine Cabinet"T drop
off locations. Drug Free Hendry County and the
Hendry and Glades County Sheriff's Offices have
partnered with U-Save Supermarkets, Walgreens,
and the Glades County Health Department to of
fer this community program for the first time in
Hendry and Glades Counties.
Medication drop-offs will be welcomed during
Operation Medicine Cabinet between 10 a.m. and
2 p.m. on Saturday, November 13th at the follow
ing locations:
U Save Supermarket: 50 Noril, ... *._ ., I.
LaBelle
*Walgreens: 300 West Sugarland Highway
(Southwest Corner of WC Owen and Hwy US
27), Clewiston
*Glades County Health Department: 956
Highway 27 SW Moore Haven
Operation Medicine CabinetT' is one way that
the community can actively reduce youth pre
scription drug abuse -by removing the source
from their homes.
This program, endorsed by the Florida Crime
Prevention Association, provides a safe way of
destroying pharmaceuticals through incineration,
which environmental specialists consider the best
method.
By burning the pharmaceuticals, as opposed
to flushing or sending medication to the landfill,
we avoid polluting our environment.
Help spread the word and encourage your
friends and neighbors to gather unused or ex
pired prescriptions, controlled substances, and
over-the-counter medications and bring them to
the LaBelle, Clewiston, or Moore Haven Opera
tion Medicine CabinetT' location on November
13th for safe disposal.

County's Operation Medicine CabinetT', call 863

Is God for Republicans or
Democrats?


BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Even though I don't put bumper stickers
on my truck or place signs in my yard,
I take my voting responsibilities seri
ously. I listen, try to understand, and then make
an informed decision
in my voting. It's not
an easy task, and my
cynic side often has
trouble believing all
I am told.
I find attack ads
offensive and wish
people could run
on their own merits
instead of their op
ponents' demerits.
I'm not nalve
enough to believe
that just because a
person is of good
character and be
liefs, that person
will make a good
political leader, but Pastor John Hicks
I do believe that a
good political leader
should have good
moral character and
good moral beliefs and be a person of integrity.
Being a strong Christian would make that
even better.
Unfortunately, when I took measure of what
was being offered, I found a lot lacking. I found
myself once again turning to God to ask Him to
help guide me in my voting selections.
For the record, I'm a registered Republican.
My wife is a registered Democrat. We get infor
nation, phone calls, and visits from both parties.
Listening to some of them, you would think that
they were God's gift to whatever needs I had.
So, the question arises, "Who really has God
on their side?"
Depending on who you asked of which politi
cal persuasion would probably get you different
answers.
Listening to the many commercials and com
mentaries by various politicians, I think both the
Republicans and the Democrats would claim that
God would side with them.
Is God for Republicans or is God for Demo
crats?
We might find the answer for that by turning
to Joshua 5:13 14 in the Bible: "Joshua looked up
and saw a man standing in front of him with a
drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him
and asked, "Are you for us or for our enemies?"
"Neither," he replied, "but as commander of the
army of the LORD I have now come."
Here we have the leader of God's people go
ing out to scout the nearest Canaanite stronghold,
finding another warrior already on the scene.
He asks the stranger, who turns out to be an
angel, whether he was on his side or the oppo
sition's. The reply was neither. He was on the
Lord's side.
The best question in all of these debates is not


to ask whether God is on our side or on their side.
The best question to ask is whether or not we are
on God's side.
Our best hope for a future is to follow God's
direction and plan -to do God's will in our name
-not our will in God's name.

Veteran's Day

BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church

Veteran's
Day. We
honor those who
have served in the
military; giving all
parts of their lives in
our defense.
My family, and I'm
sure:i, I ,, ii ii too, is
filled with those who
took up the call to
arms in one way or
another.
On this Veteran's
Day; we find our
selves and our allies
at war once again.
Through all his Rev. Sam S.
tory, the struggle for Thomas, Ph. D. +
peace and security
have been a part of
life.
Wars, cold wars, police actions, armed in
terventions, crises and build ups, preemptive
strikes. Never a decade without calling upon the
armed forces to protect and defend.
The struggle goes on. The dream and hope
is yet to be realized. I see the same thing in all
history; both Biblical and secular; "...wars and
rumors of wars..." Faith shows "Do what you
must do, never lose hope, the price paid may buy
your hoped for victory for someone else." The
New Testament era speaks of Roman legions; the
conquerors of the holy lands who imposed their
laws, lifestyles, taxes and governance.
There are those curious encounters between
Jesus and the centurion or Paul and the centu
rion (Matthew 8:5ff, Acts 10). They encounter the
Lord, lives are changed. I see Jesus accepting, un
derstanding, saying "do what you must do" and
they are changed for it. One has a servant who
is very ill (Matthew 8:6) and Jesus says "I will go
and heal him (v.7)." The centurion reminds Jesus
"I am a man under authority," that he gives or
ders but he also recognizes that "I do not deserve
to have you come under my roof(v.8)." Humility
brings understanding; recognition brings a tacit
forgiveness; answering a request and seeing God
at work changes lives.
Later, there was another Roman legionnaire,
Martin of Tours, who served faithfully until con
fronted with a beggar on a cold night who had
nothing to keep warm. Martin cut his legionnaire's
cape in two; both survive but Martin is changed.
He finished out his days in the service of God in
the region around Tours and became known for
his love of God's people.
Those who live in the crucibles of life are not
without knowing God's presence. Earlier in my
ministry, I spent time with a former Marine Corps


General. It was during an era when the country
was once more at war and many were calling for
an end to the fighting.
He told me T i i.. ..i. wishes for an end to
the fighting more than I do, nobody wants peace
more than me -and I've seen it."
He had "seen it" in the Pacific theater during
World War II and during the Korean "police ac
tion."
He told me of his finding faith through chap
lains whom he regarded as "laying it on the line
for his troops."
"Yes" I would think to myself "You have seen
it, and you don't give up hope." The sacrifices
are not in vain. We remember you all; and honor
what you did and do.


Thank God for Marriage!

BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
ames 1:17 says, "Every good gift and ev-
ery perfect gift is from above, and cometh
down from the Father of lights, with whom
is no variableness, neither shadow of turning."
God instituted marriage.
It is not a social or legal arrangement only. It
was not inherited from the brutes. It came from
God.
God's law concerning matrimony has always
been the same.
Jesus said, "Moses, because of the hardness of
your hearts, permitted you to divorce your wives,
but from the beginning it was not so" (Matthew
19:8).
Paul writes in I Cor. 7:2 "Nevertheless, to avoid
fornication, let every man have his own wife and
let every woman have her husband."
Sex is not evil. God made ample provision for
the satisfaction of this desire in marriage.
Married people ought not to separate. God
gave but one exception in Matthew 19:9. This ex
ception is fornication.
The innocent party is free to get a divorce
and marry again. If a wife leaves her husband for
some reason other than fornication, she is to re
main unmarried or be reconciled to her husband
(I Cor. 7:11).
Divorce seldom solves a problem. It creates
more problems.
Those contemplating divorce should talk long
and earnestly with a competent person, and pray
long and earnestly for the help and guidance of
the Lord.
Christians should marry Christians, live like
God wants them to live, and stay married.
When you were married, you made certain
promises -to love, honor and cherish.
You promised to forsake all others and be
faithful to your companion. Are you keeping the
promises?
Marriage is between a man and a woman.
God looks upon homosexuality as being unclean
and He says that those who practice this sin "dis
honor their own bodies and change the truth of
God into a lie, and worship and serve the creature
more than the Creator."
It further calls the practice of homosexuality
as "vile affections" (Romans 2:24-27).

Stats Show Male Teens Less Likely to Buckle Up


BY PAT DOBBINS

Getting a drivers license is probably the most
eagerly awaited event in the life of most teenag
ers, but it's usually the most dreaded event for
their parents. After all, while a drivers license is
a badge of freedom, it brings with it tremendous
risk: Car crashes are the leading cause of death
for teens.
In spite of the safety advances of the last few
decades seatbelts, airbags, improved crash
standards teen driver death rates remain un
acceptably high. According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), motor
vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death
for U.S. teens. It's hard to believe, but on aver
age, eight teens ages 16 to 19 die every day from
motor vehicle injuries. In 2009, over 3,000 teens
in the United States aged 15-19 were killed and


more than 350,000 were treated in emergency de
apartments for injuries as a result of motor-vehicle
crashes.
Young drivers increasingly die in groups.
Young drivers are more prone to driver distrac
tions, reducing their ability to react quickly and
correctly to trouble. Along with carrying several
passengers, other dangers include texting, talk
ing on the phone, drinking, speeding, and playing
loud music. The risk of motor vehicle crashes is
higher among 16 to 19-year-olds than among any
other age group.
According to a recent study from the CDC,
among teen drivers, those at especially high risk
for motor vehicle crashes are:
*Males: In 2006, the motor vehicle death rate
for male drivers and passengers ages 15 to 19 was
almost two times that of their female counter
parts.
Teens driving with teen passengers: The pres


ence of teen passengers increases the crash risk
of unsupervised teen drivers. This risk increases
with the number of teen passengers.
Compared with other age groups, teens have
the lowest rate of seat belt use. In 2005, 10 per
cent of high school students reported they rarely
or never wear seat belts when riding with some
one else.
*Male high school students (12.5 percent)
were more likely than female students (7.8 per
cent) to rarely or never wear seat belts.
Compared with other age groups, teens have
the lowest rate of seat belt use.
*African-American students (12 percent) and
Hispanic students (13 percent) were more likely
than white students (10.1 percent) to rarely or
never wear seat belts.
*In a national survey conducted in 2007,
nearly three out of ten teens reported that, within
the previous month, they had ridden with a driver


who had been drinking alcohol. One in ten re
ported having driven after drinking alcohol within
the same one-month period.
*In 2008, nearly three out of every four teen
drivers killed in motor vehicle crashes after drink
ing and driving were not wearing a seat belt.
*In 2008, half of teen deaths from motor ve
hide crashes occurred between 3 p.m. and mid
night and 56 percent occurred on Friday, Satur
day, or Sunday.
Don't be afraid to talk to your teen about safe
driving. Allow them to take Driver's Education if
it's offered at their high school. Ask your vehicle
insurance company about programs available to
teach teens about safe driving tips.
Most of all, remember that what YOU do af
fects your teen! They learn some of their driving
habits from watching what you do. Help to teach
them to be safe and responsible drivers.

Moore Haven Terriers Football Weekly Wrap-Up


Moore Haven Terrier
Running Back Awarded
District Title

BY KATHY BELSER
Moore Haven Terriers
On Tuesday, Oct 26, the Terrier's Coach Belser
attended the Florida Athletic Coaches Association
District 16 meeting, held at South Fort Meyers High
School.
The meeting was held to allow the attending
coaches, to nominate a player from their team for
a district award in their class.
The Terriers' Terry Hallback, being nominated
by Coach Belser, was named Player of the Year
for Distict 16, Class 1B" by the Florida Athletic
Coaches Association. In addition to the district
award, T.Hallback's name will go into a pool with
the winners from each of the other 15 districts,
and could possibly be named the State Class 1B
Player of the Year.
If one were to look at the success that Terry
Hallback has had this season, it would be attrib
uted to his hard work and talent, but in looking a
little deeper one would find the Terriers offensive
line & receiving core. The O-line often get little
recognition individually, or as a whole, but are
major contributors to T.Hallback's success, and


the offense as a whole.
If one were to speak with Coach Belser, about
his past as a Division I Offensive Lineman, he
would say first hand, what it is like to be in a posi
tion that contributes so much to the success of
the team and other offensive positions, but offers
little individual player recognition.
The Terriers O-line contributed in ways that al
lowed T. Hallback to use his talents for the teams
success and to post individual stats that can lead
to recognition and awards.
It is the Terriers left tackle, Ricardo, described
as "strong and mean", that Coach Belser consid
ers to be the teams best lineman. In his senior
year, Berto Pardo, has done really well this season
at left guard.
The center position is held by sophomore, Jose
Deleon, which Coach Belser feels has done really
well as a first year center on varsity.
At right guard, is freshman, Tom Barfield, who
perform well when he had to step in mii. r ii, ii
to other line-man.
The right tackle position is held by senior Ber
sain Herrera and is considered to be the vocal
leader of the offensive line. In addition, to the start
ers, are the backup players, that the coach refers
to as "a luxury I have never had before" and con
sist of, Phoenix Pattison (Soph.), Lane Nolan (Fr.),
Mathew Baker (Fr.) and William Mercer (8th).
The Terriers were defeated 26-18, by the Bra


PHOTO/ LORIE WARD
Moore Haven Terriers' #1 Terry Hallback re-
ceived the Player of the Year Award for Dis-
trict 16, Class lB.
denton Christian Panthers (BCA) in Bradenton.
The teams headed into the game with a few things
in common. This was the final district game of the
season for both teams and neither team would be
advancing to post season play, which was the sec


ond time BCA would not see post-season play.
The two teams have struggled to stay consis
tent and go out each week and really play four
quarters of football.The Panthers coaching staff
described the Terriers as "high octane," and
watching the game, they seemed to have run out
of time in the fourth quarter.
The Panthers coaches indicated how hard the
Terriers played and that the game was the most
physical game they had played all year.
When interviewed at the end of the game,
Coach Belser stated "We lost it over the whole
game. We just need to learn how to start faster
and finish even stronger and then not freeze up in
tight situations."
The Terriers have one game remaining and
a good chance to end the season with victory
number 6, the first one since 2003. The Terriers
have been described by opponents this season
as a team with speed and talent that you must

Raiders win District, while
Pahokee and Clewiston
suffer tough district losses

BY NAJI TOBIAS
Special to INI
Glades Day's final regular season game against
Zion Lutheran had major implications as far as a
Class 1B playoff berth was concerned.
It was relatively simple for the Gators: Win
and they're in; lose and their season is officially
finished. Glades Day, playing in front of its home
crowd on Senior Night, used its rushing game and
defense to blow out the Lions in an easy 59-20 vic
tory. Kelvin Taylor, Walter Sandoval and Shomori
Butler combined for eight rushing touchdowns in
this matchup, while Cory Garcia ran back a 25
yard interception return for a touchdown in the
first half.
The win clinches a District 7 1B playoff slot for
Glades Day, who will be traveling to Florida City
on Nov. 19 in a first-round battle with Barrington
Christian. Glades Day (3-1 in District 7-1B; 6-4
overall) began the scoring onslaught on its first
offensive play of the game, a 32-yard touchdown
run by Taylor with 9:59 left in the first to give his
team a 7-0 lead. Following another rushing score
from Taylor, a 12-yard run with 6:40 in the first
quarter, Lions quarterback PJ. Boiling led his
team to a scoring drive of its own.
Down 13-0 at this point, Boiling connected
with Zion Lutheran wideout Mike Bailey for a
10-yard touchdown toss. It was followed by a
two-point conversion from the tandem as Glades
Day's lead was cut to 13-8 with 4:20 left in the
first frame.
It took just three plays for Glades Day to score
again, with Taylor blazing his way past a host of
Lions for a 48-yard touchdown run to put the Ga


tors up 20-8.
Taylor, who would score once more later in
the first quarter, finished the game with 160 rush
ing yards and five touchdowns on just eight car
ries -all in the first half.
The second quarter wasn't much different, as
Sandoval (11 carries, 147 yards, 2 TD) scored his
first of two touchdowns on a 10-yard run with
11:00 in the second quarter. The score pretty
much sealed the win for Glades Day, whose 34-8
lead grew to 46-20 at halftime.
"This game went how we expected it to go,"
Glades Day head coach Pete Walker said. "I knew
we were the better team out there. We wanted
to execute a lot of plays on offense and defense
early. I wanted to get all of the guys some play
ing time and rest our starters. That was our game
plan."
Butler, a transfer from Clewiston, scored the
game's final touchdown on a 4-yard with 3:26 left
in the third quarter. Philpart, who scored one of
Zion Lutheran's three touchdowns on a 96-yard
kickoff return with 6:02 left in the first half, was
brief with his take on the game.
"We let it slip in the beginning," Philpart said
about Glades Day's seven first half touchdowns.
"That's what killed us."
Glades Day backup junior quarterback John
Barr, who's filling in for injured starter Tanner
Redish, went 4-for-6 passing with 72 yards and
an interception. Glades Day's offense, which fin
ished with 381 rushing yards on 35 carries, rolled
up 453 total yards on 41 completed plays. The Ga
tors defense, meanwhile, registered four intercep
tions, as Michael Terrell (two interceptions), Eaton
Spence (one interception) and Garcia picked off
passes from Boiling. Glades Day sacked Boiling
five times in the game. Glades Day will get an
extra week to prepare for District 8 1B champion
Barrington Christian, a much welcomed schedule
ing rest period as they try to go for their second


consecutive Class 1B state championship.

Glades Central 39, Suncoast
0:
En route to its second consecutive District 7-2A
title, the Glades Central Raiders (2-0 in District
7-2A play; 8-1 overall) used three quarterbacks to
engineer their offense in the win.
Raiders senior starting quarterback Jamarious
Rowley (6-for-7 passing, 72 yards, 2 TD), junior
backup Greg Davis (2-for-7 passing, 32 yards, 1
TD) and junior Jens Richemond (1 for-2 passing,
22 yards, 1 TD) accounted for four of their six over
all touchdowns, despite gaining just 126 yards in
the air on the Suncoast Chargers defense.
William Likely (13 carries, 104 yards; 1 catch,
10 yards) scored two touchdowns in the game,
while Aaron Baker (six carries, 63 yards) added
another one. Touchdown receptions came from
wideouts Jonathan Whitest (one catch, 23 yards),
Jaquevian Oliver (three catches, 56 yards) and
Davonte Allen (one catch, 22 yards).
Glades Central's defense forced six Suncoast
fumbles, recovering five of them. Suncoast (1-1
in District 7-2A play; 3-6 overall) threw only two
passes for 0 total yards and an interception, which
was picked off by Rashad Darisaw.
Glades Central's next and last regular season
game, the Muck Bowl, will be against the Paho
kee Blue Devils at Anquan Boldin Stadium in Pa
hokee. The Raiders are heavily favored to win its
third consecutive Muck Bowl tomorrow night.

University (Fort Lauderdale)

42, Pahokee 0:
In what has been a totally disappointing sea
son for the Blue Devils (1-4 in District 7-2B play;
3-6 overall), the home crowd at Anquan Boldin
Stadium saw its team gain just 130 total yards of


offense in their blowout loss. District 7-2B cham-
pion University moved to 5-0 in district play and
9-0 overall. Pahokee's final game of the season
will be at home against Glades Central in the
Muck Bowl.

Dunbar (Fort Myers) 15,

Clewiston 14:
The Clewiston Tigers (3-2 in District 6-2B play;
3-6 overall) missed the playoffs for the second
consecutive season after suffering a heartbreak
ing 15-14 loss to Dunbar in Fort Myers.
Down 8-7 at halftime, Clewiston running back
Virthavious Robinson (24 carries, 118 yards)
plunged his way into the end zone to give his Ti
gers a 14-8 lead in the third quarter.
But Clewiston's offense couldn't muster an
other scoring drive in the second half, which gave
Dunbar a chance to notch a comeback win and
the District 6-2B runner up playoff spot.
With 1:29 left in the fourth quarter, Dunbar Ti
gers wideout Alvin Barnes hauled in a game tying
24-yard touchdown from quarterback Johnell
Barnes, which set up a potential game-winning
extra point.
Clewiston's playoff hopes ended when Jeff
Broisrond split the uprights for a heart-stopping
extra point, which ultimately sent Dunbar (4 1 in
District 6-2B play; 4-5 overall) to the Class 2B play
offs for the second straight year.
Clewiston senior quarterback Andres Rios was
6-for-21 passing with 97 yards and an interception,
while fellow senior Tyree Wilson led all Clewiston
receivers with three catches for 57 yards.
Clewiston's last game of the season will be
tomorrow night at home against Okeechobee, a
team they are favored to beat. Should Clewiston
actually win tomorrow night's contest, they will
finish the year with a 5-5 overall record and avoid
its second straight losing season.

King's Lake Okeechobee Fishing Report

and so are the Bass reel spooled with 50-pound test Dia of time to take the shiner with the

BY MARK KING

It has been a pretty cold and
windy week on Lake Okeechobee
but the bass are still biting and the
coolerwater i,. .-, ., i di, bass and
crappies on the move from the main
lake toward traditional spawning
areas. It was tough to find areas to
fish this week with the wind blow
ing 20 miles-an-hour but when you
did find an area that you could fish
the bass were stacked up. Not a lot
of big bass were caught this week
but it was a good numbers week on
both wild shiners and artificial lures,
bass from two to four pounds were
plentiful.
Some of the better areas this
week were the dynamite holes, Har
ney Pond canal, South Bay, and Long
Point. I also had some great reports


on the north end of the lake that the
bass were really stacked up and easy
to catch on wild shiners. I fished a
Gambler Big EZ in Florida Five O
color and caught a good number of
bass before the cold front moved in
to South Florida. I fished the Gam-


ratio) and heavy enough line and
rod to get bass out of thick cover. For
fishing in more open areas, around
reed heads, and along the grass lines
a Gambler Ace in junebug or copper
field color rigged with a 1/16 ounce
screw in sinker will catch plenty of
bass both big and small. I did have
a few bass this week on a spinner
bait and a Spro Aruka Shad lipless
crankbait but most of my bass this
week were caught on the Gambler
Ace and Big EZ.
The bass fishing this week with
wild shiners was great even after the
wind and colder weather settled into
South Florida. It was just a matter of
anchoring the boat in the wind and
my Power-Pole shallow water an
chor did a great job of holding my
boat in place even in the 20 mile-an
hour winds that we had this week,
and float some wild shiners under


of bass this week. If you need wild
shiners, Roland Martin's Marina al
ways has a good supply and they are
always health and just the right size
for catching a trophy Lake Okeecho
bee bass.
The crappie bite has started to
pick up and should get better as the
water cools down. Places like the
rim canal, Harney pond canal, Uncle
Joe's canal, and the Kissimmee River
are all good places to try. Minnows
fished under a bobber and jigs are
the baits of choice on Okeechobee.
Until next week, tight lines and hope
to see you on the water.

Glades County Commission Met and Covered New Business


Oct. 26 Meeting
Accomplished Much

BY CHARLES M. MURPHY
Special to INI
Glades County Commissioners approved the
hiring of three new employees and debated the
merits of a new law that involves septic tanks
when they met in regular session on Tuesday at
the Glades County Court House in Moore Haven.
In other business matters the Commission
approved the preliminary plat for the Muse Air
Park.
Commissioners also approved the submit
tal of a Community Development Block grant
application for housing needs. The grant is for
$750,000 this year.
The grant, if approved by the Florida Depart
ment of Community Affairs would include money
to repair, rehabilitation and or replace 14 housing
units, and provide money for temporary reloca


tion of families during construction.
Commissioners also approved an Interlocal
agreement with the City of More Haven to pro
vide building inspection and permitting services
for projects located within the city limits. The
County collects approximately $11,000 per year
from the City to provide this service.
Commissioners also approved a request from
Manager Wendell Taylor to fill the vacant posi
tions of a part time custodian at the Library, a
paramedic for EMS and an administrative position
at the Agriculture Extension office.
Donna Storter Long said the hiring freeze in
place kind of hurt the Agriculture Extension of
fice. She said the new director was hurt by not
having that clerical position in place, "I just think
you could handle it and get it done for us."
The Commission also approved a resolution
that opposes new septic tank system inspections
required by a new state law. The law requires
costly inspections and the replacement of many
existing septic systems that have worked as de
signed. Commissioners stated that the inspec


tions are causing an unintended economic bur
den on many citizens.
They urged the state legislature to rewrite this
new law.
Commissioner Paul Beck said the legislature
plans a legislative session soon to delay the imple
mentation of this new law. He said the Governor
appeared to be in support of the new law.
"This is one of the hot topics up in Tallahas
see. Perhaps alternatives will be reached to get
this thing circumvented or augmented," he said.
Commissioner Echols said the people in Flor
ida don't like this and don't want this and he pre
dicted changes will be made.
"You have to prove that your septic tank is
good. Residents have to pay $500 whether there
is anything wrong with it or not," he added.
When you have times where people can't
make mortgage payments and force them to
spend $12,000 based on a person's opinion, it is
pretty difficult to support that, he added.
An abandoned sewage treatment plant previ
ously the property of the Okeechobee Utility Au


thority, will revert to Glades County.
Commission Chairman Russell Echols said he
would support dedicating this property back to
the OUA. That motion was approved (5-0).
Two County ambulances were put up bid last
month and one sold for $65,000. The bids on the
second ambulance were so low that the County
opted to donate the ambulance to Lafayette
County.
The County expects to have an ordinance
at their night meeting on Nov. 22 to expand and
provide an exclusive franchise agreement for the
Lakeport Water Association.
A dedication of the new Glades County health
clinic is scheduled for Jan. 21, 2011 at 11 a.m.
Chairman Echols applauded the efforts to cre
ate a conference room for commissioners at the
restored Court House. He said it is important that
Glades County have professional and, if needed,
private facilities to handle county business mat
ters.


Army Corps of Engineers to Waive Site Fees On Veterans Day


Day-Use Waived for Vets,
Service Men and Woman
and Their Families

BY Nakeir Nobles
Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
announced it will waive day-use fees for veter
ans, active and reserve component service mem
bers, and their families at the more than 2,400
USACE-operated recreation areas nationwide on
Veterans Day, Nov. 11.
"More than 350 million visitors a year enjoy
the outdoors at Army Corps of Engineers' recre
ation projects.
This Veterans Day we will continue the valued
tradition of honoring our veterans, active and re
serve service members and their families with an
invitation to visit one of the thousands of USACE
recreation sites throughout the country, free of


charge," said Jo-Ellen Darcy, Assistant Secretary
of the Army for Civil Works.
The Jacksonville District has three south
Florida recreational areas at which the day fees
will be waived. They are WP Franklin, Alva, Fla.;
Ortona, Moore Haven, Fla.; and St. Lucie, Stuart,
Fla.
The St. Lucie recreational area is open from
8 a.m. until sundown and WP Franklin and Or
tona recreation areas are open from 6 a.m. until
10 p.m.
Visitor centers at St. Lucie and WP Franklin,
which recreation visitors can use while at these
areas, have undergone a complete renovation.
The Corps offers visitor centers to provide
family fun and education and to teach and en
courage environmental stewardship.
Both centers feature brand new high-defini
tion interactive exhibits which provide educa
tional information about non-native plant and
animal species, life in and around Lake Okeecho
bee and the history of the Herbert Hoover Dike.
"These new exhibits will be both fun and


educational and provide hands-on learning for
visitors," said Adam Tarplee, Jacksonville District
natural resource manager."
The day-use fee waiver requires only verbal
confirmation of service. This waiver covers boat
launch ramp and swim beach fees.


The waiver does not apply to camping and
camping-related services, or fees for specialized
facilities such as group picnic shelters.
Additional information about Jacksonville
District's recreation areas and visitor centers can
be found online at www.saj.usace.army.mil and

Above: Marc Fomby gives his presentation on the "Dangerous Games Children Play." His
presentation did shock yet inform everyone there about the real dangerous habits and prac-
tices that are being targeted at young boys and girls; especially middle school students. Below:
Doctors Haitham and Ayman Khaki DPs attended the meeting as guest experts and answered
several questions during the Q and A session of the meeting.


Meeting
Continued From Page 1

Harris, Sgt. in the Narcotics Unit for the Glades
County Sheriff's Office.
They gave valuable insight the Q and A session
into the dangers of the over availability of pain
medication in the state of Florida. Sgt. Harris gave
first hand accounts of operations where he ob
trained large amounts of pain medication through
pain management clinics.
Most of these clinics are run by certified doc
tors that see 60 to 70 patients per day on a cash
only basis. Often times, there is no patient screen
ing and a prescription for pain medication is given
out without any follow up.
Both the doctors Khaki and Mary Prouty, of
the Glades County Health Department, reiterated
the fact there needs to be regulations made and
enforced regarding pain management centers.
Another disturbing fact that was brought up
in the discussions was that there are more DEA
agents in Florida than any other state.
At the end of the meeting, Sarah Litchy, Tobac
co Prevention Specialist for Glades County spoke
with the Glades County Democrat regarding the
overall goal of the night's meeting.
"It was a great presentation and we, at the
Hendry/Glades Tobacco Free Partnership, can
