A Resolution For the 10 St. Light Debate.


Democrat was given more information regarding
the light.
A study of the intersection has been under
way by the FDOT and will not be done until the
first of the new year. The results of the study could
lead to either having the light operational 24/7 or
having the light removed entirely. Having the light
removed entirely from the intersection is not ac-
ceptable to the residents of Glades County.
Glades County commissioners have given the
Moore Haven City Council the lead the 10 Ave.
light request. City Councilman James Ahern sim-
ply desires a resolution that favors the people of
Moore Haven. He recalls, as do other local lead-
ers, that the battle over the functionality of this


light has been going back and forth for years.
It either needs to work or not," stated Ah-
ern about the light. "They need to have it fully
functional or more accidents are going to occur.
Our residents, especially our children, are just as
important as those who pass through Moore Ha-
ven.
Mr. Ahern pointed out that a day or two bek>re
the interview with him, there was another acci-
dent at the same intersection under review. The
accident even included a Glades County Sheriffs
vehicle. Yet another example R>r the residents of

Lake coalition

seeks funding for

ecology projects

BY PETE GAWDA
Special to INI
There is strength in numbers. The Nine
County Coalition for Responsible Management of
Lake Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
Estuaries and Lake Worth Lagoon subscribe to
this theory. For their Friday, Dec. 10 meeting at
the Okeechobee County Courthouse the group,
made up of representatives of Glades, Hendry,
Highlands, Lee, Martin, Okeechobee, Osceola,
Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties had invited
representatives of the other seven counties served
by the South Florida Water Management District
for a 16 County Ecosystem Restoration Summit.
Stu Applebaum of the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, (COE) gave a history of the drainage
system around Lake Okeechobee and noted the
change in landscape from pre-drainage days until
today.
We have too much or too little water," Mr.
Applebaum said. "We never see average." He
said the lack of funding is hurting restoration proj-
ects. The good news is that the Kissimmee River

Mr. Applebaum gave an update on the Her
bert Hoover Dike Restoration. He said high water
causes concern for potential failure and triggers
more frequent inspection of the dike. He said
there was not as much likelihood of damage from
water coming over the top of the dike as there
would be from seepage and piping under the dike.
He said the dike is divided into sections called
reaches that are numbered in order of their need
for rehabilitation with Reach I on the southeast
end of the lake being most critical. That is where
rehabilitation work is currently gong on. Reaches
2 and 3 are on the south and southwest end of the

followmghtheseMh idKaee ur children with you
at all times while you are shopping. Accompany
and supervise your children in public facilities
and rest rooms.
Have a plan in case you become separated. If
your kids are old enough to understand, have a
pre-designated spot to r... l il ....t get separated.
Teach children to look for people who can
help, such as a uniformed security officer, sales-
person or even a mother with children. Remind
children to remain in the area where they be-
come separated.
Kid safety: Keep a watchful eye on your kids
when they're eating and playing. Keep potentially
dangerous toys, food, drinks, household items,
choking hazards (like coins and hard candy), and
Other objects out of kids' reach. Learn what to do
for children who are choking. Make sure toys are
used properly.
Wash your hands often: Keeping your hands
clean is one of the most important steps you can
take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to
others.


Wash your hands with soap and clean run-
ning water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and
clean water are not available, use an alcohol-
based product.
Stay warm: Cold temperatures can cause se-
rious health problems, especially in infants and

Be smoke-free: Avoid smoking and breathing
other people's smoke. If you smoke, quit today!
Call 1-800-QUIT NOW or talk to your health care
provider for help.
Get check-ups and vaccinations: Exams and
screenings can help find problems before they
start. They can also help find problems early,
when the chances for treatment and cure are bet-
ter.
Vaccinations help prevent diseases and save
lives. Schedule a visit with your health care pro-
vider for a yearly exam. Ask what vaccinations
and tests you should get based on your age,
lifestyle, travel plans, medical history, and family
health history.

Fire Safety: Most residential fires occur during
the winter months. Keep candles away from chil-

Handle and prepare food safely: As you pre-

Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw
meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their

Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrig-

Temperatures Continue to
Drop as well as the Lake
Level

BYMARKKING
Looks like it is going to be another cool week
here on Lake Okeechobee with temperatures
dropping at night to near freezing. That's quite
cold for South Florida!
The bass fishing has been a little tough for
some but the winners in the Toys for Kids tour-
nament on Saturday had a five bass limit that
weighed 20 pounds and with over one hundred
and sixty boats in the Gambler Baits tournament
on Sunday it took over 22 pounds to win.
The Toys for Kids tournament was a great
success with lots of new toys to be given to the
Clewiston Police Department for local kids to en-
joy on Christmas. It was great to see a lot of old


friends and to meet a lot of new ones this week-
end at the tournaments.
The first thing I want to talk about this week
is the water level on Lake Okeechobee which is
at 12.68 feet above sea level and dropping every
day.
The lake is now at that level where you think
that it is still safe to run in a lot of areas but it
might not be.
The back trail across the West Wall and that
runs up the shoal does not have enough water in
them to run safely. These areas are all rock and
can destroy a gear case, prop, or boat and are not
worth taking the chance.
I just hope that South Florida Water Manage-
ment will slow down the outflow of water on the
lake; we don't need to go into drought conditions
on the lake to save the estuaries on the coasts.
The fishing this past week was a hit and miss
deal with the worst weather days being my best
fishing days. With the lake level dropping the wa


ter on the outside grass line has remained fairly
Clean and this seems to be where the bass are
staging in anticipation of moving back in to the
spawning areas.
The spawning bass may be a little hard to get
to this year with this water level dropping and
making it tough to get back into the spawning
flats.
My clients this week caught most of their bass
on lip less crank baits like the Spro Aruka Shad in
gold color that I throw and fishing a shaky head
in the rim canal and dynamite holes.
When we could fish the outside grass line a
Gambler 10" worm did the trick around isolated
reed heads. The wild shiners also worked great
along this outside grass line in Coots Bay, East
Wall, and around Ritta Island.
The bass seem to be moving around a lot and
when you catch one you will catch quite a few in
the same area. One other way to catch Okeecho-
bee bass when the water cools off is to find a


heavy grass matt and flip a craw type soft plas-
tic bait under the matt, this will sometimes take
a heavy weight to get through these mats like a
one or one and a quarter ounce weight. Usually
the bass you catch under these mats are pretty
good size.
The crappie fishing wasn't too good this past
week but a few were caught in the rim canal,
Uncle Joe's Cut and Harney Pond Canal. Both jigs
and minnows are working well.
I have gift certificates available for fishing both
here on Lake Okeechobee and for in the Florida
Keys during the spring and summer months,
what better Christmas gift to give someone than a
relaxing day on the water.
IJntil next week good luck, tight lines, stay

some president of Mack Trucks, wondered why
p.....l. .1;.in I1..,, n..... .1;. .. I trucks. Thenhe dis-
covered his prospective customers' difficulty with
finding drivers and mechanics who could handle
the big oil-burning vehicles. So he decided to give
something away; he advertised free courses in
diesel maintenance. The first ad brought 3,000
applications. He expanded the service until free
courses were being offered in many cities and
sales of diesel trucks soared. The more you give,
the more you are bound to receive. The more you
give to you job, the more you will receive from
it, not only in material compensation, but also
in joy and satisfaction. Try to withhold from the
job, taking advantage of the situation to extend
the lunch hour or coffee break, and you'll be left
behind when the J. C. Penny's of the world go for-
ward. Giving yourself to your work can make your
rich. If you want love and friendship you need to
give the same. If you want understanding, then
give understanding to others. Give whatever you
would like to receive and be sure that it will come
back to you in abundance. Withhold and you
will never have enough. Let love and goodness,
service, material resources flow out from you in
a never-ending stream, and you will always be
prosperous. Yes, giving makes you rich!

Advent: Redeeming The Time
BY RE MS. TiHO H. D.+

Someone reported in a "Facts and Figures"
article the amount of time we spend waiting in
an average lifetime. I don't remember the exact
amount, ...I ll .- -1 -- ri.. In offices, in traffic,
waiting for something to dry/set/finish/recycle;
waiting is a fact of life. The military adage, "Hurry
up and wait" has pervaded our lives. Even "fast
food" requires some waiting for preparation. Ear-
ly in my growing years, I learned never to say "I'm
bored." That comment usually brought a host of
suggestions of things I could do, and not all of
them were pleasing! I learned that I am respon-
sible for my own amusement-filling time-keeping
myself busy finding my own things to do. As a re-
sult, doctor's offices mean taking my own book,
long road trips mean listening to tapes or looking
for some worthwhile commentary, looking at the
newspaper as I wait for meals in restaurants, writ-
ing sermons while waiting for an appointment
to show up, praying for a few minutes before a
worship service begins, reading when there is
nothing palatable on TV meditating before fall-
ing asleep. I've learned to recognize when blocks
of time will be available, and then to fill them in
some useduli oandt a of n1y10wnmcphoo nj,

aitingelor am ne tnan airpo trTflee so rv

I can plan better for my own next trip, stand-
ing in line at a registration desk means an oppor-
tunity to hear the difficulties of the person ahead
of me and preparing in advance how to overcome
them, being "on hold" on the phone means hav
ing a pad and paper nearby and outlining a letter
to be written when the call is over. Insofar as is in
my power, waiting is never boring, never wast-
ed, never spent idly directed by something else,
never "a waste of time." The people who waited
for the Lord to come had kingdoms to develop,
wildernesses to conquer, cities to build, people to
choose as their leaders, and little time to be idle.
Paul writes "Be careful, then, how you live...mak
ing the most of every opportunity because the
days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-15)" His call to "re-
deem the time" is a reminder to our opportunity
to be as economical with our time as with all of
Our material resources. Now, we're in "the home
stretch" for Christmas, the fulfillment of what all
of our spiritual ancestors awaited. The remaining
time is for us to redeem, too. It is an opportu-
nity to ask ourselves what we can do to make the
best use of the next week; "Lord, what wilt thou
have me to do?" Advent is about preparing for the
coming of the Lord; waiting is an active time and
not a time to sit by and do nothing. Seasons of the
Church year are full of life, activity, getting ready
and then celebrating. God only took time off to
rest when His work of creation was done!

the company of the many customers who became his friends.

The family would also like to thank all of you who sent flowers, food,
cards, condolences and prayers during this difficult time. They are all greatly
appreciated.

Jim was a special man, always already to jump in the van to go to
someone's house and fix an oven, washing machine, refrigerator or any other
appliance in need of assistance. He never met a stranger and loved to help others.

Jim was a real asset to the local community. He will be greatly missed

Special Sports Reports: Rally G~ives Glades Day 2nd Back-To-Back Title


In the early going, it was all Warner Christian as
running back Breon Allen (11 carries, 147 yards,
one touchdown) began the Eagles onslaught with
a 30 yard touchdown run. Laterin the first quarter,

run with 4:10 left in the first half.
A poorly as we played in the first half, I told
my guys that we were still in it," Glades Day head
coach Pete Walker said. "We just needed to start
moving people out of the way on offense and
sta c ndnh fe ring began with Taylor's

second rushing touchdown of the game a 24-
yard scoring run with 6:37 left in the third quarter.
With Warner Christian's lead now cut to 21-14,
Oldham would score his second touchdown just
21 second later a 22 yard run that stretched the
Eagles lead to 28-14. In Glades Day's attempt to
open up the offense, they did just that as Gators
junior quarterback Tanner Redish (4-for-10 pass-
ing, 60 yards, one touchdown) threw a nifty 28-
yard touchdown pass to Williams with 1:44 left
in the third. At that point, Warner Christian's lead
was cut to 28-21. That would be the score at the
end of the third quarter.
"We were finally able to cash in on a turn-
over," Walker said of Glades Day's first of five sec-
ond-half touchdowns. "They [Warner Christian]
kept answering back, but we started feeling like
we own the line of scrimmage. Their lines were
getting tired and we were able to wear them
down."
To start the fourth, Glades Day's offense need-
ed just four plays all runs to tie the game up at
28-28 with 11:56 left. Taylor's 9-yard touchdown
run his first of three in the fourth quarter was
set up by a fumble recovery from Taylor Mann,
who scooped up the ball after Warner's Oldham
fumbled on a kickoff return toward the end of
the third quarter. Warner Christian (13-1 overall)
took a 35-28 lead in only three plays, thanks to
a 25 yard kickoff return from Allen and a 60-yard
touchdown run from Dixon with 10:59 left.
Right after that, Glades Day's grit started to
shine right through the entire offense for the rest
of the game. Taylor just kept plugging away at the
heart of Warner Christian's defensive line, as he
churned out seven runs of 56 yards on Glades
Day's next offensive series. The drive ended with
Taylor bursting through for a 14-yard touchdown
run to tie the game up at 35-all. Following a three-
and-out offensive series from Warner's offense

Day all of its energy and willpower to overcome a
21-0 first-half deficit and muster a 42-35 victory.
Down almost the entire game, Glades Day
(10-4 overall) needed a late touchdown from
sophomore r n rilack24Kelvin dTayl e(FHSc
downs) and a clutch defensive interception from
Corey Garcia to seal the Gators seventh overall
state championship
"We went into the locker room at halftime
with our heads up," Glades Day junior wide re-
ceiver Steven Williams said. "No one had their
heads down. We scored late and they [Warner
Christian] kept us in the game. When you keep
a Gator in the game, we're going to fight and ex-
ecute. And that's we did."
Williams, who caught an interception and
scored Glades Day's only receiving touchdown,
said the will to fight through adversity was a key
component to the 21-point comeback victory.
"Everybody has doubts in their mind," Wil-
liams said. "But when you play for the Gators, it
means nothing to you."
Tied at 35-35 with 6:13 left in the fourth quar-
ter, Glades Day's offensive line created holes
for Taylor to run through on the pivotal scoring
drive. Taylor ran the ball right through the heart of
Warner Christian's defense for seven plays, as he
muscled his way to a 19-yard touchdown run that
put the Gators up for the first time with 2:20 left.
"The offensive line is incredible," Taylor said
of how the state title game turned out. "I just want
to thank God for them, all my teammates and the
coaching staff for getting me the ball."
On Warner Christian's final offensive posses-
sion, Eagles quarterback Tyler Barron (4-for-9
passing, 117 yards, one touchdown, two inter-
ceptions) threw a game-ending interception to
Garcia, who bobbled the ball and then secured it
at Glades Day's 15 yard line with just 1:27 left.
"I got strong faith in our defense," Taylor said
of Glades Day's final defensive stand, which in-
cluded Garcia's pick. "They did it in the Jupiter
Christian and I knew they would do it again for
us here." Glades Day, who has won back to-back
state championships for the first time in its his-
tory, scored five touchdowns in the second half
.11. r b. ....: down 21-7 at halftime.
"It was just the first half," Taylor said. "I was
just told my boys to keep going. We had two more
quarters to go. If we just stepped up on both sides
of the ball, I knew were going to come back."


was Taylor's championship winning score that
sealed the comeback. "I'm sure glad he [Taylor]
ran it in," Walker said. "Our offensive line made a
nice hole for him and he capitalized on it."

NOTES: After Taylor's game-winning touch-
down, the official ejected him from the game
for excessive celebration a controversial call at
that. Replays clearly showed that Taylor simply
kneeled down at the end zone and pointed his
index fingers to the sky, thanking a higher author-
ity for what transpired. Taylor tied the FHSAAstate
record with 110 total touchdowns for his high
school football career. Only a sophomore, Taylor
shares that mark with Charlotte senior running
back Mike Bellamy. Taylor needs to score just one


touchdown next season to become the state's all-

I'M FREE
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or place;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
I'm with God now, I've been set free.

Honored Residents
On Nov. 3, Angela Snow and LaTosha Reise were recognized at the International As-
sociation of Emergency Managers 2010 Annual Conference and Presidential Banquet
which was held in San Antonio, TX. Both formally received their Associate Emergency
Manager (AEM) from the International Association of Emergency Managers. The AEM
credential designates a high honor of professional achievement. Currently there are
65 AEM's certified by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM),
which only 6 of those (including Ms. Snow and Ms. Reise) are in Florida. Ms. Snow
and Ms. Reise had to complete an extensive credentials package for consideration for
their AEM. This package included 200 hours of emergency and management training
in which more than 25 hours could not be in the same category. Three professional
references were required. A five page management essay that required a response
to a scenario that the applicant may face while fulfilling emergency management
responsibilities to include all applicable knowledge, skills, laws, regulations, antici-
pated problems and solutions. Finally they passed a one hundred question written
examination that contained universal questions for emergency management regard-
less of location. Both, Ms. Snow and Ms. Reise are very excited about obtaining this
achievement and look forward to working more closely with the IAEM to better serve,
educate and safeguard Glades County and its residents.

Glades County Tobacco-
Free Schools Policy
The Glades County L>bacco-Free Partner-
ship R>bacco-Free Schools Committee met
with Janice R>ster, Director of Exceptional Stu-
dent Education and Student Services, to discuss
making additions to the current Glades County
R>bacco-Free Policy. This initiative is part of a
statewide county by county movement to im-
prove tobacco-free school policies, increase
awareness of tobacco use by students and staff
at schools, and to better entree tobacco-free
policies.


Many people do not know that there is
not a statewide law about tobacco in schools.
The R>bacco-Free Partnership has done some
investigating into Glades County policies and
their effectiveness. It was found that there was
not a comprehensive 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 consequences ofviolating the
policy, the focus will be on corrective rather
than punitive measures. Different options are

by SFWMD, listed by Mr. Teets, are state and local
permits, local land use and zoning laws and re-
duced funding.
1. .-.. .11. what we are looking for is less wa-
ter east and west and more water to the Glades,"
he said. However, he added that under current
regulations water quality has to be improved be-
fore the water could be sent south.
"I think what we need to do is exercise our
political muscle,' asserted Commissioner Sarah
Heard of Martin Country.
Under the current lake regulation schedule
the maximum ideal height of the lake of 15.5 feet.
Currently water managers are always looking for
more water storage areas to keep the lake level
down to keep pressure off the dike and to keep
from having to discharge water to the estuaries.
However, state owned water storage areas take
land off local tax rolls.
Glades County Commissioner Russell Echols
asked when enough of the dike rehabilitation
would be completed in order to safely raise the
maximum allowable lake level.
Mr. Applebaum stated that once Reaches 1, 2
and 3, the most critical reaches, are rehabilitated,
it might be possible to relax lake height restric-
tions.
Commissioner Echols made a motion that the
coalition promptly passed making the comple-
tion of Reaches 1, 2 and 3 a top priority.
"This is a great forum because the policy mak-
ers get s._-, II., a said Carole Wehle executive di-
rector of SFMWD.
"As the economy goes up and down usually
the environment is the first thing that doesn't get
funded," Ms. Wehle said. "We are all experienc-
ing this serious economic downturn."
What are the most important things we can
do with limited resources?" she asked. "We stand
ready to give as much information as necessary in
the public policy debate."
The coalition asked the staff of COE and SF
MWD to formulate a short list of ecological pri-
orities. The coalition is a teleconference meeting
Jan. 28 to study those priorities and make plans to
lobby Congress for those ..1 -i. 1. .
Commissioner Echols made the point that the
Everglades are often called a national treasure.
Therefore the 16 South Florida counties should
not bear the entire cost of Everglades rehabilita-
tion.

looking over the crash history, traffic flows and
volume," stated Debbie Tower. "There is a man-
ual which the traffic engineers use to determine
the criteria for a light's placement and operational
times. I do not want to speculate at this time on
whether the light will remain or not."
Their criteria have to be met in order to war
rant the full-time operations of the 10 St. light.
FDOT officials involved are still going over the
data they have collected and they are planning to
speak to local leaders and residents as well.
So, for the time being, residents and officials
of Moore Haven will have to wait a little more for
answers.

lake. Okeechobee is in Reach 5.
Mr. Applebaum said the proposed fiscal year
2011 budget contained $180 million for South
Florida restoration projects and $104.8 million for
the Herbert Hoover dike. The estimated cost of
thedikerehabilitationis$1.9billion.
"We're in a pretty serious situation with the
lake at 12.69 feet," said Col. Alfred Pantano, com-
mander of the COE's Jacksonville District. "We're
predicting a pretty serious drought," He predicted
the lake level would drop to below 11 feet.
When the lake is high, the COE manages the
dike for flood control. When the water gets lower
SFWMD is responsible for lake management for
maximum consumptive use.
"We can't rehab that thing fast enough," the
colonel said of the dike. He said the COE would
be replacing metal culverts around the lake with
concrete culverts.
The colonel said that a lot more states are now
fighting for COE money. He predicted it would be
harder in the future to get funding for dike reha-
bilitation. He said that Congress did not appreci-
ate the uniqueness of Lake Okeechobee and the
dike. In some cases there are people living right
next to the dike. In most other instances, dams
span a valley between two mountains. Nobody
lives in the valley and the land is owned by the
federal government.
He said that if the dike were built today, it
would not be built to the original standards. It
was built with the best technology of that day.
Tom Teets of South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) stated that since 1994, 45,000
acres of stormwater treatment areas (STAs) have
been built at a cost of $1.8 million. He said that in
2010 over 1,4000,000 acre feet of water in STAs
reduced phosphorus loads by 75 percent.
The Lake Side Ranch STA serving the Taylor
Creek and Nubbin Slough Basin is well under way
according to Mr. Teets.
Best Management Practices cover 1.163 mil-
lion acres north of the lake. Mr. Teets said they
not only benefit water quality but enhance agri-
cultural production. Among the challenges faced
