In 2009, there were 7 million (2.8 percent)
persons aged 12 or over who used prescription-
type drugs non-medically in the past month. In
2008, that number was 6.2 million. In 2007, it was
6.9 million.
From 2002-2009, there was an increase
among young adults -- aged 18 to 25 -- in the
rate of current non-medical use of prescription-
type drugs (from 5.5 to 6.3 percent).
This was driven primarily by an increase in
pain reliever misuse (from 4.1 to 4.8 percent).
Among persons aged 12 or older in 2008-09
who used pain relievers non-medically in the past
12 months, 55.3 percent got the drug they most
recently used from a friend or relative for free. An-

Josiah Jones was a legendary Seminole cowboy

GC SO Detective: Pill

Pill Abuse on the Rise
Nationwide and in Glades
County
BYERICKOPP
Special to INI
After nine years of working narcotics, a de-
tective with the Glades County Sheriffs Office
(GCSO) said prescription pill abuse adds not only
to the crime rate, but the death rate.
"In the last 18 months I've seen an increase in
pill usage," said the detective. "It's really the worst
I've seen in a long time. It's out of control."
And a 2009 National Survey on Drug Use and

The Incom arable Christ
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
As Christmas draws near, it is important that we
remember that Jesus Christ came from the bosom
of the Father to the bosom of a woman. He put
on humanity that we might put on divinity. He be-
came the Son of Man that we might become Sons
of God. He was born in a supernatural way, lived
in poverty, reared in ..1... ..,;1- Only once crossed
the boundary of the land, in childhood. He had no
wealth nor influence and no a .11. .. .l... ,li.....yet
the profound wisdom of men has never equalled
His last discourse in John 13 to 17 and the Sermon
on the Mount. Never has man spoken like this
man. His relatives were inconspicuous and not in-
fluential. In infancy He startled a king; in boyhood
He puzzled the doctors, even at 12 years of age He
was far in advance of the theologians, for He was
taught of God. He healed the multitudes without
medicine and did not charge for His services.
He never wrote a book, yet libraries could not
hold the books that have been written about Him.
He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the
theme of more songs than all song writers com-
bined. He never founded a college, yet all the
schools t.... 11.. r cannot boast of as many students
as He has. He never marshalled an army, drafted a
soldier nor fired a gun, yet no leader made more
volunteers, who have under His orders made reb-
els stack arms or surrender without a shot being
fired. He conquered death, rose after three days as
He said He would, ascended into Heaven, is now
at the right hand of the throne of God, and will
one day come in the clouds of Heaven with power
and great glory for His own born-again, blood-
bought ones to be forever with Him according to
promises, after which He will judge the world in
righteousness, when every knee shall bow to Him
and every tongue shall confess Him as Lord His
friends gladly, but His enemies reluctantly, seeking
for a place to hide from His face (Rev. 6:15).
The ever Perfect One He is the Chief among
ten thousand, the only One who can satisfy the
soul and give .,l,-sh.e. Life to those who have
it not. He is Altogether Lovely, and He is my very
own Savior.

Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share,
love, appreciate, and give of ourselves. None of us
knows when this incredible journey will end, but it
can come to an end at any moment. Perhaps this
is God's way of telling us that we need to make
the most out of every single day. It's important for
us not to take for granted those things and people
precious to us. It's important for us make special

because it makes the day more special; choosing
the right gifts for special people, working on what
is to be shared in Church to bring a special wor
ship experience to others who share it with me;
reminiscing and preparing the "annual newsletter
shared with family and friends and mailing them in
time for the season's celebrations in their parts of
the world, looking forward to knowing with them
that this time is special in their lives too. Christ-
mas isn't about one day only; it's about the days
before. Now, we are about two weeks away from
that special day; and the time is now to "invest"
in it by our planning for the coming of the Lord in
our own ways. In spite of the dark times that pre-
ceded Jesus' coming; people nevertheless knew
that their faith and preparation for a new day was
not wasted. Same thing today; faith is never finally
betrayed, hope is never ultimately disappointed in
spite of all that seems dark. May we live these days
of preparation in hope; and prepare to celebrate
His coming once more.


effort to cherish them and love on them as much
as we can when we can, for life is precious and
there are no guarantees of tomorrow.
Over short period of time, our community has
experienced a number of losses. Young men, taken
before their time, who were with us one day and
gone the next. It's always hard for parents to bury
a child. The death of a child seems to violate the
natural order of things. But so does the loss of a
husband and father and grandfather, a mother and
grandmother, especially when the parting is unex-
pected. Death can take a holiday. One of the most
difficult aspects to deal with is the reality that the
person will never again be part of family life. Holi-
days exasperate this. But we can't let death win.
Grieving is like a wound that needs time to
heal, and everyone heals at different rates, but fac-
ing the grief can be the best medicine toward heal-
ing. Each contribution helps in finding a new sense
of purpose while keeping the loved one's memory
alive. Letting people be there in whatever way they
are is also an important part of this healing pro-
cess. A friend called me during a time I was going
through a period of grief, sharing, "John, we don't
know what to do for you. If you want to be alone,
we will give you space. If you want company, we
will be there. Regardless, we want you to know we
love you." Knowing I had friends who cared for me
and were there for me helped me get through the
holidays and realize healing, even if I didn't always
avail myself with their offer.
This year, some friends and family will be hold-
ing Christmas without a loved one. Their faith and
their memories and the love shared by friends and
neighbors are the gifts that will help them through
the holidays. Let us be the Christ-light for them in
their darkness. Let us weep with them and laugh
with them and be there for them. We are here to
help each other on our journeys to help walk the
mile and help bear the load.

Saint Martin's Church
When it comes to the end, sometimes we will
never know. Usually, we can talk about begin-
nings and celebrate them; baptism into a new
life in faith, birthdays beginning of a new life in
this world, the first day on the job, the first day of
school, the founding of a country, the birth of a
great hero. These are the days that bring memories
and traditions that bind us t.... 11.. The Christmas
story is also the story of a beginning. It is about
people who knew the day was coming and so they
prepared for it. People held onto the hope that
there would be a better world and that they might
live without fear. The earliest stories (e.g. Noah -)
are about knowing in faith that there would be dif
faculties to transgress but God would be with the

don't need to let any more out of the lake for this
time of the year. I just don't understand why it is
so hard for South Florida Water Management to
manage the water here in Lake Okeechobee; it
seems like every year it is a problem either too
much water or not enough.
The bigger bass seem to be still staged on the
outside grass line in most areas and if the water
isn't to dirty from the wind blowing than this is
where I would fish. If the water seems to dirty
than move back in the grass till the water starts
to clear up some.
Some of the good areas this week have been
Coots Bay, East Wall, the Shoal up around Ob-
servation Island area, Long Point, and the Horse
Island area. If the wind is blowing too hard than
the dynamite holes and the rim canal have plenty
of bass and some really nice ones are still being
caught.
Wild shiners have been working great on the
outside grass lines and the bigger the shiner the


better, the smallshiners and domesticated shiners
are not working very well. This is one case where
bigger is definitely better. For artificial lures I have
been using Gambler Big EZ swimbaits and Reac-
tion Innovation Skinny Dippers. Just buzz these
baits over the grass and be ready k>r a violent
strike, also be rigged up with heavy braided line
and extra strong hooks like the ones I use from
TroKar.
The only other lure that I have been using is
a Gambler Ace rigged weightless or with a 1/16
screw in weight when the wind blows, junebug
seems to be the best color.
I was pr. .I. --- .1 to spend a few days last week
at the Ranger Boats factory in Flippin Arkansas
where I spent some time in pro staff meetings and
also got to see a couple new model boats for this
year. There is a new 18-foot boat the Z518 that is
a tournament rigged bass boat that is affordable
R>r everyone and a new 22 k>ot bay boat the 220
Bahia that is rated k>r a 150 horse motor that will


fit anyone's budget. Stop by Roland Martin's Ma-
rine Center in Clewiston k>r more information on
these boats or the whole Ranger boat line. There
is no finer built boat on the market for both fresh-
waterandsaltwater.
The crappie fishing has still been pretty good
with the rim canal, Harney Pond Canal, Point of
the Reef, and Kissimmee River all good places to
try. There are a couple of great tournaments this
weekend out of Clewiston, on Saturday the Toys
for Kids tournament and on Sunday the no entry
fee Gambler Baits tournament.
Stop by Roland Martin's Marine Center for
more ink>rmation on these tournaments. Until
next week good luck, tight lines and hope to see
everyone out on the lake.

Cold Weather in Full Force
and Fish Are Still Biting

BYMARKKING
The cool northern weather has finally made
it to South Florida; not sure if it followed the
snowbirds or what but it is here. One good thing
though is that it hasn't effected the bass fishing
here on Okeechobee.
I was gone most of last week to pro staff
meetings at Ranger Boats in Flippin Arkansas and
when I got back and went out on the lake on a
guide trip my clients caught some really nice bass
including an eight-pound hog.
Lake Okeechobee is one awesome lake and
there are bass to be caught somewhere on the
lake at all times.
The lake level is at 12.79 feet above sea level
and seems to be going down a little almost ev
ery day. We are at a great lake level now but we

Couple Busted Driving a Rolling 1Meth Lab in Buckhead


volatile. Said one detective at the scene Wednes-
day, if air hits the mixture it can burst into flame.
How much meth actually comes from the
mixture depends on the amount of pseudoephed-
rine in it.
A detective familiar with the making of meth
said two packs of the cold medicine can make up
to 6 grams of meth and, depending on the quality,
would be worth $600 to $900 on the street.
After everything had been removed from the
car Wednesday, a clean up crew from Summit
Environmental in Jacksonville arrived to take pos-
session of the chemicals.
The company, who has a contract with the
U.S. government, then took those chemicals to
an undisclosed site and disposed of them.

head, pulled into the parking lot of the Sunoco
Convenience Store.
The detectives asked for permission to search
the car, but were denied. At that point GCSO K-9
Sandy was brought in to conduct and exterior
sniff of the Ford.
K-9 Sandy alerted to the vehicle and the detec-
tives started to search the vehicle, but their search
was soon stopped
when they saw a
plastic bottle con-
taining a mixture
they suspected of -r
being the ingredi-
ents to make meth.
The mixture, said a
detective, was not
yet complete so
the 'cooking' pro-
cess had not yet
started.
Mathias and
Whitehead Whitehead were William
not yet charged, but
were taken into cus-
tody until the chemicals in the car were identi-
fled.
One of the detectives later had to be taken to
an area hospital due to fumes from alleged chem-
icals in the car.
The detective, who was coughing and suffer-
ing with a headache and sore throat, was treated


at the hospital and released.
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA)
was contacted, but did not arrive at the scene un-
til Wednesday morning. So, a GCSO deputy was
assigned to stay with the car all night.
Around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, two DEA
agents clothed in gas masks and hazmat suits
opened the car and began to search it. They al-
legedly found all the chemicals
necessary to make meth-which
included empty pseudoephedrine
(cold tablets) blister packs, drain
cleaner, batteries and acetone.
These chemicals, along with a
couple of other ingredients, and
the lithium strips from the batter-
... ies are mixed together in a con-
tainer and allowed to 'cook.' The
chemical reaction is what 'cooks'
the mixture into meth.
In a 'shake 'n bake' or 'one
pot' operation-like the one al-
MathiaS legedly taking place in the Ford
Escort-it normally takes 45 to 60
minutes to make a batch of meth,
said a detective.
Once the mixture is in the bottle, plastic tub-
ing with a cap is placed on the bottle. The per-
son watching the mixture kinks the tubing, then
releases pressure in the bottle by unkinking the
tubing.
When the mixture is cooking it is extremely


Traffic Stop for Speedins
a
Leads to Meth Bust

BY ERIC KOPP
Special to INI
A suspected rolling methamphetamine lab
was brought to a screeching halt Tues-
day night with the arrests of a Glades
County man and woman in Buckhead
Ridge.
Arrested Nov. 30 were William
Mathias, 36, C.R. 721, Lakeport, and
Leslie Whitehead, 32, Saddle Lane,
Moore Haven.
Both were booked into the Glades
County Jail under a felony charge of
possession of listed chemicals and a
misdemeanor charge of possession of
drug paraphernalia.
Whitehead was also charged with
the felony of possession of a controlled Leslie
substance (xanax) without a valid pre-
scription.
Whitehead's bond has been set at $131,000,
while bond for Mathias is $126,000.
The case began innocently enough at 6:35
p.m. Tuesday when detectives from the Glades
County Sheriffs Office (GCSO) pulled over the
black Ford Escort for speeding on S.R. 78 W in
Buckhead Ridge. The driver of the car, White-


such as burglaries and robberies.
The detective pointed out that most property
crimes today are being committed by people ad-
dicted to pills. In many instances, when they run
out of their pills they resort to stealing to fuel their
habit
"And, it's all races," said the detective. "Here,
it's more Caucasian -- lower to middle class. It's
not effecting any one race or financial status.
Whenyou're overmedicating and your script runs
out, you've got to get more pills.
"The normal working class individual that
holds a respectable job is getting addicted -- even
though they may have legitimate pain -- because
of the power and strength of these pills," the de-
tective added. "I won't let anyone in my family
take them because I've seen what they can do --
it's very scary."
It'snotonlyscary;it'sdeadly.
A recently released r. ....I 1.. 11.. Florida Medi-
cal Examiners Commission (FMEC) through the
Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
shows that: the deaths of 822 people in Florida
last year were caused by alprazolam (xanax); 265
deaths were caused by hydrocodone; and, 1,185
deaths were caused by oxycodone.
According to the District 20 Medical Exam-
iner's Office, there has been one death in Glades
County so far this year that was caused by "drug
intoxication."
That report goes on to state that because it


can take 6 to 12 weeks for a toxicology report
to be completed, there may well be other cases
where the final cause of death ruling is pending
and won't be known until the toxicology report
has been received.
So, where are people getting their pills?
"We really don't have a doctor here we have
to worry about, so a lot of our people go to pain
clinics and doctor shop," explained the detective.
"I'd have to say a -..... Im 1. 85 percent of our pills
are coming from pain management centers."
But, .11. .. ... of working hundreds and hun-
dreds of drug cases, the detective feels the prob-
lem goes much deeper.
"Some of this addiction is not the fault of the
.
people on it -- it's the fault of the system. When
youtalktothesepeopleandaskthemwhythey're
medicating themselves it's because their injuries
should have been taken care of but, instead, they
keep getting put off," said the detective.
"If you have a legitimate issue, albeit tempo-
rary, then give them a script to take care of it.
"But, to let it go on for years and years -- we're
doing our future an injustice. We should take care
of our people."

held so that this story would not jeopardize un-
dercoverincestigations.

other 17.6dpoecocent reported that they got the drug
Among those who reported getting the pain
reliever from a friend or relative for free, 80 per-
cent reported in a follow-up question that the
friend or relative had obtained the drugs from just
one doctor.
A July 16, 2010, report released by the Drug

there was a 400 percent increase between 1998
and 2008 of substance abuse treatment ad mis-
sions for those aged 12 and over due to abuse
of prescription pain relievers like oxycodone and
hydrocodone.
Which, along with roxycodone and xanax,
are the pills the detective is seeing most often in
Glades County.
Depending on demand, the detective said rox-
ys are going for up to $10 a pill on the street while
hydrocodone is being sold for up to $7 a pill and
oxys are going for anywhere from.75 cents to $1
a milligram.
Pill abuse not only fuels addiction, but it's also

Glades County Health Department
The Glades County Tobacco-Free Partnership
Tobacco-Free Schools Committee met with Jan-
ice Foster, Director of Exceptional Student Edu-
cation and Student Services, to discuss making
additions to the current Glades County Tobacco-
Free Policy.
This initiative is part of a statewide county
by county movement to improve tobacco-free
school policies, increase awareness of tobacco
use by students and staff at schools, and to bet-
ter enforce tobacco-free policies.
Many people do not know that there is not
a statewide law about tobacco in schools. The
Tobacco-Free Partnership has done some inves-
tigating into Glades County policies and their ef
effectiveness.
It was found that there was not a compre-
hensive policy at the county level. It was also


found that violations of the current policy have
occurred.
The goal of improving the policy is to focus
on creating a norm of tobacco-free schools by
students, staff, and visitors.
Also, by making changes to the consequenc-
es of violating the policy, the focus will be on
corrective rather than punitive measures.
Different options are being investigated for
an alternative to the suspension program with
a cessation component instead of out of school
suspension.

like to join the Tobacco-Free Schools Commit-
tee please contact Sarah Litchy the Tobacco Pre-
vention Coordinator for Glades County. 863-946-

teams Tuesday afternoon at Yearling.
Darlah Cypress showed off strong floor game

ceola led Yearling with three points. She added
five steals and six rebounds.
Seminole Assistant Coach Megan Nelson said
her team was in great condition and really played
hard defense all afternoon, "We did a good job on
defense, we were real proud of the girl's effort.
We have run a lot to condition ourselves for
this kind of basketball."


There were a lot steals and turnovers alike
from both teams in the first half as they kind of
got their feet wet on the season.
Yearling played hard and held their own under
the boards. The Lady Bulls just weren't able to
get many good shots at the basket thanks to the
Seminoles defense.
The Seminoles led 9-0 after the first quarter
and 18-0 at halftime.
The Seminoles led 22-0 after the third quarter.
Yearling missed 11 free throws in the game.

ers $41,794, Hendry County School District
$16,116, Johnson Prewitt & Associates $5,598,
Lykes Brothers $5,595, and Johnson Engineering
$2,208.
Tilton went on to say, "Considering the huge
need in our community, we must reach the
$197,000 goal. We are reaching more of the in-
dividuals and families who are in great need
through our partnership efforts, but to continue
to serve those in need, we must reach the goal."
Cliff Smith, President of the United Way com-
mented, "This is a generous community and we
can do it. Every gift is important no matter what
size, because added together they can make a
real impact.
United Way has recently expanded services
throughout the community through a United Way
House in Moore Haven and plans for a United
Way House in Clewiston.


Through a partnership with United Way, The
Salvation Army, and the Harry Chapin Food Bank,
over 800 families in need have been given food
in LaBelle and Moore Haven. "The outreach by
United Way and the United Way partner agencies
has been phenomenal," said Smith.
A local network of thirty-four agencies and
programs will receive funds from the 2010-2011
United Way of Hendry & Glades fund raising
campaign. These agencies include: The Salvation
Army, Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Children's
Advocacy Center, Child Care of Southwest Flori-
da, Healthy Families and many others.
This network serves a diverse range of needs:
nurturing children and youth, strengthening

t rl is t 11 ee dsuchdas1helpdn
empowering communities by bringing health and
human services to neighborhoods. The network


of United Way agencies helped over 21,000 peo-
ple in Hendry and Glades Counties last year.
In addition to housing the United Way 211
help-line program, many agency programs and
services can be found at the LaBelle and Moore
Haven United Way Houses such as Southwest
Florida Addiction Services, Children's Advocacy
Center, Community Coordinated Care for Chil-
dren (4 C's), Hendry Glades Homeless Coalition,
Catholic Charities and more.
In addition to raising funds for human service
organizations in our community, the United Way
promotes partnerships and collaborations among
agencies, helping them to work together focusing
on issues and solutions that continue to improve

The South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) is joining with the Hendry-Glades
Audubon Society as the group conducts its por-
tion of the 11Ith Christmas Bird Count in STA 5 in
Hendry County on Dec. 18, at 7 a.m.
This is the Hendry-Glades Audubon's fourth
year conducting the count at STA 5. The data col-
lected during the annual counts which span
North America and beyond are critical to stud-
ies of the long-term health and status of bird pop-
ulations. Such data is used to protect birds and
identify environmental issues with implications
for people as well, according to Audubon. The
STAs, managed by the SFWMD, also provide the
public with variety of recreational opportunities,
such as hiking, biking and excellent bird watch
ing.
