Be Prepared for


Hurricane Season


Be prepared for this
hurricane with these useful
tips
Even though 62 percent of Florida residents are
aware emergency evacuations routes can change
annually, more than one-third (36 percent) are
unsure about their designated evacuation route,
shows a recent AAA Consumer Pulse survey.
AAA suggests residents check with their local
government to see if any changes were made to
their evacuation zone, since the zone is what de
termines when an area is required to evacuate.
Although the majority of Florida respondents
(89 percent) said they would follow evacuation
warnings, only 40 percent keep an emergency car
kit in their vehicle.
"Before evacuating their home, consumers


need to take important documents with them
such as insurance policies and other household
or medical paperwork, as well as valuables, and
an inventory of personal items," said Marge En
gleman, Sr. Insurance Manager, AAA Auto Club
South. "If planning to evacuate, motorists need to
be sure they have an emergency car kit in their
vehicle to be as prepared as possible when on the
road."
While 80 percent of Florida respondents said
they prepare for hurricane season, significantly
less people keep a plentiful supply of first aid,
medical supplies, or medication (68 percent
compared to 78 percent in 2010), extra food (74
percent compared to 80 percent in 2010), and a
. iii i. operated radio (67 percent compared to
72 percent in 2010).

PUBLIC HEARINGS
1. Case Number R1 -02 Glades Tree and Sod,
LLC (Hilton)
Board approved the rezoning of approximate
ly 320 acres in Muse (on Loblolly Bay Road about


one mile west of the fire tower on CR 731) for
Planned Development to Agricultural Residential
which will allow 64 residential dwelling units at
one dwelling unit per five acres.
BUSINESS AGENDA
3. Request: Insurance Options for Counties
(Mary Ann Dotson) (Richard Schell)
This item was tabled at the last meeting and the
Board is considering options to determine prefer
ence for the county's vote at the Board meeting
of Public Risk Management, the insurance pool
in which Glades County is one of 42 entities since
1988, with a total of 5500 employees involved,
with the advantage of spreading the risk. A short
presentation was given by PRM's Richard Schell
who stated the percent of costs increase would
be, max, single digit. Concern for not having pro
posed premium costs was voiced, along with the
uncertainty of future revenue expectations prior


to the July budget workshops with coverage ef
fective October 1.
Commissioner Echols inquired about "shop
ping" for premiums and giving PRM official 60
days' notice of intent to do so, and that we need
to be more proactive in our selection process
than we have been in the past. Schell stated
that at a recent Sarasota county meeting they
had taken BlueCross BlueShield representatives
who told them they would not get a better deal
direct from BCBS. He also stated last year Hen
dry County went out for bid and the closest they
came was 50 percent higher than PRM and said in
15 years, they've only had one member leave the
pool. Echols suggested the Board should have a
committee to look at our options and include the
constitutional officers too, and to his knowledge
in six years the county had not shopped. Com-
missioner Giesler brought out that the PRM Board


meets under the sunshine law.
Giesler, who is the Board's appointee to PRM
with Mary Ann Dotson as alternate, asked if PRM
could back up the cut-off date by maybe two
months in order to give the actual premium so
costs would be known prior to deciding on op
tions. Schell explained that the underwriter uses
the most recent 12 months experience to develop
rate plans and 12 months out to project antici
pated costs. He stated the longer the wider those
components are away from each other, the more
likely the underwriter will place more trend into
the calculations. Giesler stated insurance is a big
part of our budget and we'd like to know some
thing as quick as we could. He stated Mary Ann

RELIGION COLUMNS


The Real Free Gift
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
It happens regularly; those "free gifts" that
come my way! The latest was an offer to send me
a booklet on protection; if I'd fill out the card and
give a phone number where a "follow up call"
could be made.
-It was about in
S' surance; I began to
feel that I'd be asked
. questions and get a
sales pitch.
I didn't accept
the "free gift" put
ting the offer in the
circular file. I was
offered a free pre
view for some reli
gious videos; they
would send them
Rev. Sam S. Thomas and I had 90 days to
return them. I told
the folks that videos
get passed around, and somebody loses track.
The sender wants to be paid for them and maybe
that was why he sent them in the first place.
My request was to send us a copy that they
didn't need back. That couldn't be done. The
free offer had strings; it wasn't really free after all.
The next "free offer" of films will bring a promise
that we'll send them back right away; but please
give us permission to copy and review them at
our leisure. I'm betting I already know the answer
to my request. A notification came one day that I
had won a "free" Pontiac. There was a telephone
number for me to call.
It wasn't an "800" number, so I called collect;
feeling that anybody who could give me a car
could certainly afford paying for a collect call. The
woman who answered on the other end wasn't
sure; she had to ask her boss and he said to refuse
the call. Imagine that! In reality, "free" things are
far from free many times. The "free" things are re
ally free when they come without conditions.
I like a Biblical account of a "free gift" best of
all; it was really free. I didn't have to earn it, no
conditions, no limitations, no hidden clauses, or
sales pitches to follow. It is about a gift that wasn't
like a trespass (Romans 5:15). We live in a world
full of pitfalls, snares, hazards, evil; people fall and
that is a part of our nature.
The gift was about overcoming the tragedy
of it all, about recognition of our condition and
being justified in spite of ourselves, and in spite
of what goes on around us day by day. With our
inheritance of all that is wrong; God has pro
vided "abundant provision of grace and the gift
of righteousness..." through the sacrifice of the
Lord, "the many will be made righteous(5:17,
5:19)" We have it from God that in spite of it all;
we are His and heirs of His salvation. Is the gift
free? There is an addendum to the passage; "But
where sin increased, grace increased all the more
(v.20)."
The more we need the gift, the more it is
made available to us; now that's a free gift! No
strings, no limitations, no guilt trips for recipients,
no conditions. That's the way God works. Mer
chants: take a lesson!

Questions Without Answers
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First united Methodist Church
Which came first, the chicken or the egg? A
little boy on the Art Linkletter show years ago an


swered the question, "The chicken had to come
first, because God can't lay eggs." His answer is
probably as good as any other.
What is it that we look for when the riddles
and the puzzles and the problems and the ques
tions line up on the path of life? Solutions? An
swers? Explanations? Mysteries revealed? All the
puzzles finally unraveled?
From the time in
the Garden of Eden
with the temptation
of the fruit from the
tree of knowledge of
good and evil, there
has been the con
eviction that we can
and should have all
the answers to life's
every question. The
reality is we don't
have all of the an
swers. And what's
more, we can't. Pastor John Hicks
There are so
many questions for
which there are no satisfactory answers. To be
sure, we can make some suggestions, but when
all the questions have been asked and when what
answers available have been given, we, in faith,
move beyond questions related to "how" and set
ourselves to the discovery of meaning. Beyond
the questions we seek a presence a presence
that bestows upon us a peace that is beyond our
understanding.
Someone once commented, "Birds do not sing
because they have an answer. They sing because
they have a song!" When we come to worship,
it does not mean that we have all the answers. It
simply means that we have a song.
We may not understand how the God of all
creation could empty Himself and become the
Babe of Bethlehem. We may not understand how
a crude cross erected by Roman soldiers on the
top of a hill outside Jerusalem over 2,000 years
ago could save the world from its sin.
We may not understand how the God of the
billions of galaxies could hear and answer the
prayers of a small child kneeling beside his bed in
a tiny home in the most remote part of the world.
We are not Christians because we have all the
answers. We are Christians because we have a
song. Having a song, let's sing it!

Are you a Mega-Christian?
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
I recently received an e mail from Maxine
Fream Gash from Joplin, Mo. with the above title.
Maxine is from Lakeport, Fl., the daughter of the
late Spurgeon and Pansy Click.
She has a monthly page in "The Restoration
Herald." Joplin is where the terrible tornado
struck, destroying over 8,000 homes, 500 busi
nesses and, thus far, killing 165 people. In her
e mail, Maxine was bemoaning the fact that al
though we have mega churches of up to 20,000
members, immorality has increased. This is quite
the paradox.
She asked the question: "Why, when there
are supposed to be so many more Christians than
ever in this country, are the moral standards so
much worse than they were when I was young?
Shouldn't it be the other way around? Back then,
divorce among church members was extremely
rare. Abortion was something I never even heard
about until my teen years, and then it was in
formation from books: something surreptitious
and shameful. Homosexual acts were illegal,


and those caught involved were locked up. Who
could have imagined marriage between same sex
couples even being considered? Modesty in dress
and behavior are concepts apparently forgotten
in today's culture." Maxine goes on to say, "We
can fault the preachers, and no doubt some are
at fault; but I blame the culture and the pervasive-
ness of the public media which have the atten-
tion of the people hours every day of the week as
opposed to an hour of teaching on Sunday." She
also said: "Too many Christians simply don't de
vote the same time and energy to learning about
God's Word and it's teaching as they do to secular The family of QuincyWestberry would like to

LORI Meetings Showing Great Work


Local leaders around the lake gathered at the Clewiston Museum for Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative meeting this past April.


The Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative
(LORI) hosted a crowded room of citizens eager
to continue the ._-. ,i . 1. ,i i ai egan almost two
years ago at the Clewiston Museum.
"I recall LORI's first meeting taking place in
this board room" said Phil Bacon, vice president
of neighborhood and regional initiatives for the
Collins Center for Public Policy, which oversees
LORI. "There was a lot of hope in this room two
years ago and we are here today with a continued
vision of progression and development."
Bacon further reflected on LORI's significant
accomplishments, or doable deeds. Some of
LORI's goals included establishing a regional eco
tourism brand, democratizing regional economic
development data, increasing youth engagement
and strengthening existing infrastructure.
Education and outreach were the resounding
themes of April's meeting. Mike Maidenberg, a
Collins Center consultant on youth engagement
strategies, and Taranza McKelvin, a city of Belle
Glade employee gave a tag team presentation on
LORI's urban farm efforts-Soil of Prosperity.
Soil of Prosperity, a name coined by local
youth, grew from a regional partnership involve
ing the City of Belle Glade, Lake Okeechobee Re
gional Initiative, University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences and Palm Beach
County.
This regional partnership has designed a
small-scale farming experience that educates
Belle Glade youth about the history of the area in
which they live and allows local youth to partici
pate in the economy through a simulated entire
preneurial venture.
Maidenberg conveyed his excitement about


SOP, "Establishing an entrepreneurial component
for Belle Glade's youth is a doable deed of LORI,
I'm thrilled we have been able to accomplish this
much."
Maidenberg and McKelvin also touched on a
nine-week summer program called "The Water
Experience," which has been constructed in co
operation with the SFWMD. It will involve both
classroom sessions and field trips. It will also
teach students more fully about the water man
agement district's work and focus on jobs and job
qualifications.
The Community Builders Certificate Program,
a newly formed partnership between LORI, Flori
da International University and Palm Beach State
College, was unveiled by Dr. Tom Zuniga, man
aging director of DSG Community Management
Systems. Zuniga outlined a vision that would
cultivate a new class of leaders to sustain LORI's
regional framework for years to come.
Gina Reynolds, executive director of Florida's
Heartland Regional Development Initiative, gave
the final report during the meeting highlighting
the Florida Rural Broadband Alliance. Reynolds
shared positive news about the possibility of
broadband access coming to the Glades.
Elected officials, local business owners and
member's from the District closed the meeting by
acknowledging the superb work accomplished
through LORI.
The Lake Okeechobee Regional Initiative is
a regional economic coalition sponsored by the
Collins Center for Public Policy and the South
Florida Water Management District. For more

FWC Supports 'Operation


Dry Water' for 3rd Year


PHOTO / FWC
This weekend, FWC officers, along with local law enforcement and the U.S. Coast Guard, will
make a special effort to stop dangerous boating under the influence violations.


Last year, 17 people died from boating acci
dents related to alcohol and drug use in Florida.
"Alcohol and drug-related -.. -IIi.-: accidents
are preventable," said Capt. Tom Shipp, of the
FWC's Boating and Waterways Section. "Even
one death is too many."
That is why law enforcement agencies around
the state and country are participating in "Opera
tion Dry Water" this weekend. This nationwide
public-education effort is designed to prevent
alcohol-related accidents and fatalities. FWC of
ficers, along with local law enforcement and the
U.S. Coast Guard, will crack down on boating un
der the influence (BUI) violations.
"While our officers always look for BUIs,"
Shipp said, "this weekend, they are making a spe
cial effort to stop this dangerous activity."
2009 was the inaugural year for this effort,
and the program's effectiveness made repeating
it worthwhile. Last year, agencies in all 50 states
and six U.S. territories participated, interacting
with more than 60,000 boaters and taking 322 im
paired operators off the water before they could
kill or injure themselves or someone else. The
FWC alone arrested 12 boaters for BUI.
"We know that increased officer effort reduc
es boating accidents and saves lives. Saving lives
is what 'Operation Dry Water' is really all about,"
Shipp said.


The FWC reminds boaters to be careful this
weekend. Boaters who have had too much to
drink or who are impaired by drugs are a great
danger to the boating public.
"Being under the influence of alcohol or drugs
impairs a boat operator's vision and reaction
time," Shipp said. "Sun, wind, fatigue and other
conditions can intensify the effects alcohol or
drugs have on a boater."
Intoxicated boaters are also susceptible to
injuries or falling overboard because of impaired
coordination and balance.
"If you're caught boating under the influ
ence, you may be fined and jailed, your boat may
seized, and you could lose your boating privi
leges," Shipp said. "But most importantly, you are
risking your life, the lives of your passengers and
the lives of other people out on the water."
The FWC reminds boaters that they are re
sponsible for making decisions that keep them
selves and others safe.
"We want everyone to have a great time and
stay safe on the water," Shipp said. "Carelessly
choosing to operate a boat while impaired is a
decision that can result in a tragic ending to an
otherwise wonderful day on the water."

should be the one going to the PRM board meet
ing since she works with the insurance plan.
Beck stated medical CPI was eight percent last
year; Schell said the trend last year was about 10
percent last year for medical and drugs. Beck said
Schell mentioned a one digit increase this year
so he was assuming nine percent. Schell replied,
thereabouts. Beck inquired if costs had been
down, would premiums go down. He said there
is a possible decrease or increase of one percent
to 10 percent variation off the average based on
our loss ratio compared against the pool over all.
Schell pointed out the County's nine year renewal
history compared to the estimated carrier trend
and for a ten year period, Glades County's in
crease was a 6.6 percent average annual increase
and the estimated carrier trend is 14.46 percent.
Commissioner Storter noted that the purpose
of today's discussion was to give direction to
Commissioner Giesler and Mary Ann on which
plan the County prefers when they vote a the
Board meeting Friday morning. Storter said with
out knowing the rate plan cost increase it is hard
to choose. She inquired if the Glades C-"11 I, , r. i rI
iff's Office was part of this pool, and was told no,
but the employees of other constitutional officers
are included in this plan. Schell stated the reason
the Sheriff's office gets a better price is the aver
age age of his employees is 10 years lower than
county government employees.
Storter said she wanted to do the best for the
employees especially in light of recent legisla
tion concerning retirement while protecting our
taxpayers too, but until we know our revenue
situation we could not know if we should make
a change. She stated without more information
she would prefer to stay with the current cover
BlueChoice 0702 plan with her second choice of
2.5 percent benefit reduction. The Board moved
to have our designated PRM appointee to vote in
favor of keeping the same level of coverage, to
request a 60 day roll back for official notice, to
shop for coverage, and to work with a committee
to review options.
4. Appoint: Port LaBelle Advisory Committee
(Taylor)
Board re appointed Han Mouthaan for a two
year term as member of the Port LaBelle Utility
System Advisory Committee. Mr. Mouthaan was
originally appointed in 2005.
5. Appoint: Planning Commission Member
(Taylor)
At the direction of Chair Echols, board moved
to appoint Charlie Morningstar of Moore Haven
Yacht Club to immediately fill Seat 1 of the Glades
County Planning Commissioner for a two-year
term ending March 31, 2013.
6. Bid Award: Resurface Remaining CR-720
(Benbow Road) (Taylor)
C. W Roberts Construction (d/b/a Cougar
Contracting) was awarded the contract as low
est bidder at $1,496,240 for the project funded
by FDOT at $2,805,222. Commissioner Storter
inquired and was assured that this bid includes
fixing the railroad crossings.
7. Approval: Letter to South Florida Water
Management District for
Curry Island Property (Taylor)
Board approved a letter requesting consid
eration by SFWMD of the county as recipient of
some of their surplus lands in the Curry Island
area that will include approximately 700 acres
recently leased by Glade County from SFWMD,
and possibly other acreage. Storter asked if this
would affect our possibility of receiving other sur
plus lands from WMD, and Attorney Pringle said


he was unaware of any limitations.
7A Adopt Resolution for amending lease of
Curry Island.
Attorney Pringle presented the Board a Reso
lution expressing the County's desire to expand
its lease of land in the Curry Island area to include
all the area owned by Trustees of the Internal Im
provement Trust Fund lying east of 78, south of
Fisheating Creek and north of Sportsman's Village
Canal. Board approved the Resolution that will be
submitted along with other documentation that
was requested April 25 by Florida Department
of Environmental Protection in application form
with required attachments including aerial pho
tographs and certified survey of the property de
sired as outlined in the application form that was
initially provided Glades County August 2, 2010.
Commissioner Storter inquired about the
DEP's June 1st deadline and Pringle stated it was
extended to June 15. Storter noted that by asking
for "all" we may get a good bit of it but if we don't
ask, we don't get it. She said that expanding our
lease would put the acreage above the 160-acre
threshold that would require the County to com
mit to implementing a Management Plan more
detailed than the simple plan now in place, stat
ing, "If we're going to do this, we're going to do it
the right way all the way."
Pringle noted that further negotiations on this
property are intertwined with future discussions
with LOHA, one such meeting scheduled later
this afternoon. Board approved the Resolution.
8. FWC Cooperative Conservation Blueprint
Project (Hilton)
Public Safety Director requested consensus of
the Board for his participation in a subcommit
tee that is trying to develop non-monetary incen
tives for landowners to put land in conservation
or preservation that has potential to affect Glades
County.
Chairman Echols: The one thing I noticed
about this on the page that the Caloosahatchee
Crossing East and West, and if you look at the
people that's comprised of that advisory com
mittee, I don't-maybe there's somebody on there
from Glades County that I don't recognize but I
don't see anybody's name on there from Glades
County. It's got underneath it, it's got names, one
of them being an employee from Hendry County
and Marty Daltry-I know that's from Lee County. I
don't see anybody on there from Glades County
it's awful odd that they would come out and ask
us, you know, "what do you think?" when they
didn't ask anybody from Glades County to be
on any advisory committee. I'm a little bit con
cerned when they start talking about all these
conservation easements, because, initially they
want a conservation easement, they want a cor
ridor for the panther. It's pretty convenient to use
the panther when it wasn't may years ago there
was supposed to be, what, twenty nine or thirty
of them left in the world and they were all south
of the Alley down there, they needed all that land
for? Now, these same panthers have decided
they want to go to Disney World in Orlando so
they have to have a corridor to go there. Well,
it's amazing now that there's panthers up there.
Well if the panthers' area have expanded to that
many acres in Florida, then they probably don't
need protecting anymore. They're expanding at a
rate that they will probably be in Georgia by next
year.
Commissioner Giesler: Maybe that's why we
should have him on that board.
Commissioner Storter: Absolutely! All the
more reason to put you on there Larry.
Commissioner Echols: I'm a little bit con
cerned about the expansion of these animals and
the rapid rate that they're conquering areas and
territory here.
Commissioner Storter: Mr. Chairman, I'm
concerned about the loss of revenue if these
qualify for some type of tax exemption whatever.


We need to decide where it is, not just let them
chose it for us.
Commissioner Echols: The ones that I've been
exposed to so far, are the ones they are talking
about up around the Kissimmee area and pretty
much where it ensures and demands and made a
pointed statement when he came and put a pre
sentation on for the 10 County Coalition was, that
they could pretty much, each one is drafted a little
different, but pretty much they get paid for part of
that property, looked like to me about half of what
the value of the land was and they could keep it in
ranch land but they couldn't do row-cropping or
anything any more intensive than that, and then
the public doesn't have access so we're buying for
about half the price, the public has no access to it
whatsoever and it's pretty much set up to where
you can maintain it poorly if at all. All this to give
a corridor for the panther that was supposed to
be only 30 of them left in the world down south
so it seems to me that any time these groups get
into a quandary about how to accomplish what
they want to accomplish, they use the manatee,
the panther or the eagle as conveniently as they
need to, to accomplish their goals and I'm very
leery of it, very very leery. That's my opinion and I
think it does if I'm not correct me if I'm wrong Mr.
Pringle, but doesn't that also impact the taxable
value of the 1i.I' 'r. I '
Commissioner Storter: That was my concern.
Attorney Pringle: That is the big issue for the
county, or a big consideration for the county is the
impact on your taxable revenue.
Commissioner Echols: Well definitely I think
we need to have Mr. Hilton's participation but I
would like that participation to understand the
parameters of what I've seen and I think some of
the other board members' concerns are, because
if we're not careful we could be harmed irrepara
bly because we have a lot of lands that could be
used for these conservation easements. Is that the
will of the board?
Commissioner Storter: For him to serve? But
we don't have any impact on saying they can't
choose some lands from an individual owner, do
we?
Commissioner Echols: No we don't, but we
can at least point out to the fact that the money,
andlf'.,, I ii.. i, . , .i the moneyswere being
raised for this, but it's, I want to say it was some
portion of real estate sold, or something, it's part
of the funds that they're using to -'. ii ... ease
ments with. It was not particularly well received
at the 10 County Coalition, matter of fact there's
several groups that are opposing what they're try
ing to do in that area.
Commissioner Jones: Whenever these lands
were selected, how come wasn't Glades County
contacted since we're one of the counties in
volved?
Hilton: I don't think the lands have been iden
tified yet and the Florida Forever program is the
ones buying up conservation lands, and has for
years. This is a different approach, this is to give
someone incentives; I went to a meeting a few
months ago and they were talking about it and
an example they gave is maybe they could I.. i ,,
rules or the laws changed where a farmer in ex
change for some conservation easement can get
a fifty or sixty year water permit instead of a twen
ty year permit, that kind of incentive, not money.
That was an example. I couldn't think myself of a
good example and that was one that was given
to me when I asked what kind of incentive might
you give.
Commissioner Echols: At the 10 County Coali
tion they had maps and they had a deal where it
went right across the Caloosahatchee River in a
panther corridor and the whole nine yards going
almost all the way up to the south of Lake Kis
simmee.
Hilton: They showed me probably the same
map you saw and it had half of Glades County


in this corridor. I asked them how wide a corri
dor does a panther need, and they said maybe a
half mile or so, and I said you out to put a pencil
line on that map instead of all of Glades County, it
would be easier to sell that.
Commissioner Echols: I want to meet they
guy that trains that panther to stay on that half
mile wide corridor. That's what I want to do.
Commissioner Jones: It seems like to me over
a period of years that everything that this county
wants, we're denied by the population on the east
and west coasts and we've become their play
ground, and some time ago the FHREDI board
entertained a thought of a heartland expressway
because there's nothing to connect central Flori
da and us except 1-75 and 1-95; 27 doesn't serve as
well. We were opposed by every environmental
group in the world and ,. ......... 1.. i ., like
Russell justsaid, I. i. i i.. .... i ,n , i / comes up
with some environmental issue we become the
sacrificial lamb. Whenever the lake is too full,
we're fussed at because we ruin the Caloosa
hatchee, we ruin the St. Lucie, but then whenever
i , i. , . * ot algae blooms and theysaywhy
i.,, i . ... release water. No one understands us;
and the effect upon the ad valorem tax that we
have, it is going to be borne by us, not by them.
And I'm just totally opposed to any of this until I
have somebody from Glades County on this, or
further explanation of what this entails.
Echols: So I think it is the consensus of the
board to have you on there Mr. Hilton.
COMMISSIONERS ITEMS AND COMMENTS
Storter stated that on April 12 that we had de
cided to spend money on three iif.i i , !. .i.. i .
one was for Washington Park, we upgraded from
building a pavilion to building a community cen
ter, then agreed to not try to renovate the old Or
tona center but to build a new one and the third
was to build a Moore Haven fire department facil
ity and had basic some plans on that one, and
she had mentioned at that time that we probably
need to suggest a priority. She said Mr. Geistman
had talked with her and one other from the Orto
na Board but the committee had not met with Mr.
Taylor and he indicated it make take years to do
this. She said that Washington Park had been on
the list longer than any others and they changed
their plans now and have been presented a man
agement agreement. Commissioner Jones stated
he and Al Brown have met with Mr. Taylor and
Al Brown had taken the management agreement
prepared by Mr. Pringle to the community asso
ciation and there has not been an approval, but
have been some corrections and changes they
want to make, but has not been resubmitted to
us and we're waiting on them, and it's been a
month. Storter requested a copy of the proposed
management contract for community associa
tions. She asked if that is something we are going
to other community associations with, and Prin
gle agreed and stated that one is intended to be a
prototype; he said it has not been formally put on
the agenda for board consideration because he's
waiting on the Washington Park group. Taylor
stated it is a draft. Jones said we are waiting for
them to respond and there's nothing we can do,
it's in their hands.
Commissioner Echols stated we're still work
ing with the Corps of Engineers to get the final
permit on the Harney Pond Project; he said he
was told they did not see any major obstacles,
but they are continuing to move extremely slow
and they've sent out requests for additional infor
nation somewhat 30 pages long; he continued
that the new format they have is a minimum of
26 pages so they have the "turtle syndrome" and
hopefully in the very near future we'll be able to
start moving some dirt out there.

Inland Birdwatching Fun:



Swallow-tailed Kite


Swallow-tailed Kite in flight at STA5.
BY MARGARET ENGLAND
Hendry-Glades Audubon
Birdwatching is fun for youth and adults. It's
easy to become excited when you see birds nest
ing or try to get a close-up photo of a bird with
its young. With binoculars and powerful camera
lenses, it is easier to avoid causing stress on birds
that are protecting their nest or young. This is not
only good for the birds but is also a more relaxing
and enjoyable
experience for
the birdwatcher.
The Swallow
tailed kite is a
graceful black
and white raptor
that the Calusa
called "Ta ti
na" or "spirit
that soars." The
Swallow tailed
Kite rarely flap its
Margaret England wings while fly
ing but it almost
continuously
rotates its tail, often to nearly 90 degrees. It does
this in order to hold a heading, make a sharp turn
or trace tight circles while drifting across the sky.
It has relatively small feet and beak for a raptor,
which results in a diverse diet of small prey that
includes insects, reptiles, amphibians, small birds
and a small number of mammals. These graceful
flyers frequently eat while flying and get water by
skimming the surface and gathering water in their
bills. Vocalization is a shrill "klee-klee-klee".
The Swallow-tailed kite migrates from South
America to nest in Florida swamps, and may be
seen from March to September flying above road

ways and trees in the inland counties searching
for food. Large numbers of birds gather at stag
ing roosts in South Florida in late July and August
before they migrate south for the winter.
A few Swallow tailed kites are being observed
on the west side of STA5 (Stormwater Treatment
Area 5) where Hendry Glades Audubon leads
scheduled bird trips through a partnership with
the SFWMD. You are invited to join the July 16
trip to STA5 as volunteers search for the Swallow
tailed kite and 50 other bird species found dur
ing the summer at STA5. Meet at the Clewiston
McDonalds at 7:15 a.m. or STA5 gate at 8:30 a.m.
Reservations are required. To sign up for the trip,
send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5bird
i,.. .... , ... l .i i.. ..i ...... w ith your nam e and
contact information including an emergency cell
number for the trip day, the date you want to go,
and the number in your party. You may also leave
this information at 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.
Bring water, snacks, and lunch. For a schedule of
STA5 trips through December 2012 visit the HGAS
website at: www.hendrygladesaudubon.org
You can help Swallow-tailed kite researchers
determine the distribution, monitor population
trends, and locate important nesting and foraging
sites. Sightings of nests, roosts, kites carrying nest
material or food, locations where kites are seen
regularly, and sightings of more than one kite are
of particular interest.
Information can be submitted to The Avian
Conservation Center and the Center for the Birds
of Prey through their website at www.thecenter
forbirsofprey.org/swallowtail-kite.
Share your birdwatching experiences and post
suggestions for featured birdwatching sites on the

Yet, more than three-fourths (88 percent) of
Florida respondents said they keep items on hand
such as batteries and flashlights, and extra water
(81 percent).
"Whether evacuating or not, consumers need
to have an ample supply of water, food, medical
supplies, and prescription medication since there
is no way to tell how long one could be without
power and other basic necessities," said Engle
man. "To make storm preparation and evacua
tion easier, consumers should make a checklist of
needed items and to-dos before the start of hur
ricane season."
AAA offers all consumers, members or not,
key hurricane preparedness worksheets, check
lists, guides, and tips online at AAA.com.

Hurricane Preparedness Tips
*Talk with your insurance agent to be sure
you have proper coverage on your homeowner's
insurance policy as well as separate flood insur
ance. For more information on homeowner's and
flood insurance visit AAAs Insurance web page.
* Keep a folder ready with all important docu
mentation and identification so it's easy to grab
and transport. Store insurance policies in a water
proof bin or container.
*Maintain a household inventory and take
photos of items inside your home like personal
belongings, appliances, furniture, and electronics
for proof of ownership.
*Be sure to have an ample supply of neces
sary medications in case pharmacies are closed.
* Make sure all pets have proof of current vac
cinations, since most hotels and shelters require
them before accepting animals.
*If you are told to evacuate, do not wait un
til the last minute to leave. Evacuate as soon as
possible to ensure you get to your destination in
time and are not caught in severe weather while
driving.
* Consider purchasing storm shutters for your
home if you live on or near the water. AAA mem
bers in Florida save 15 percent or more on all new
hurricane and security shutter installations with
Roll-a-way Storm and Security Shutters. For a free
consultation call 1-800-683-9505.
* Consider purchasing a generator if you are
not asked to evacuate, but could lose power for
an extended period of time. AAA members can
save 10 percent on generators and 5 percent on
sale items at Sears Commercial by calling 1-800
215-3979 through the AAA Show Your Card &
Save Program.
*Before evacuating, make sure all loose items
around your home are put away or secured to
the ground so they do not become projectiles in
strong winds.
The AAA Consumer PulseTM surveys were
conducted online among residents living in AAA
Auto Club South territory from April 12-19, 2010
and May 2-5, 2011. Overall survey responses were
weighted by age to ensure reliable and accurate
representation of the adult population (18+) in
Florida.

Disaster Kit Checklist
*Water -at least 1 gallon daily per person for
3 to 7 days
* Food -at least enough for 3 to 7 days
Snon-perishable packaged or canned food
/juices
Foods for infants or the elderly
Snack foods

Have a family disaster plan
*Discuss the type of hazards that could affect
your family. Know your home's vulnerability to
storm surge, flooding and wind.
*Locate a safe room or the safest areas in
your home for each hurricane hazard. In certain
circumstances the safest areas may not be your
home but within your community.
*Determine escape routes from your home
and places to meet. These should be measured in
tens of miles rather than hundreds of miles.
*Have an out of state friend as a family con
tact, so all your family members have a single
point of contact.
*Make a plan now for what to do with your
pets if you need to evacuate.
* Post emergency telephone numbers by your
phones and make sure your children know how
and when to call 911.
* Check your insurance coverage-flood dam-
age is not usually covered by homeowners insur
ance.
*Stock non-perishable emergency supplies
and a Disaster Supply Kit.
* Use a NOAA weather radio. Remember to re-
place its - 11, I . every six months, as you do with
your smoke detectors.
*Take First Aid, CPR and disaster prepared
ness classes.


Include pets in family
disaster plans
As a part of Florida Hurricane Preparedness
Week, state emergency management officials are
encouraging every pet owner in Florida to include
their animals in their family disaster preparedness
plan before the start of the 2011 Atlantic Hurri
cane Season. By planning for the needs of your
pets, it will greatly increase the chances of their
survival during disasters.
"During a disaster, you may not have enough
time to adequately plan and prepare for your
pets' needs," said Bryan W Koon, director of the
Florida Division of Emergency Management. "I


encourage all residents to take the opportunity
during this week to consider what you would do
with your pets if a tropical system i 1ii ...i i .. ,1
area and to plan for their needs."
If local officials order an evacuation for your
area, affected residents should never leave their
pets behind.
As many emergency shelters do not accept
pets, residents should identify a safe place to ac
commodate their pets, such as a kennel or the
home of a family member or friend outside of
the anticipated impact area, prior to the storm's
potential landfall. Families with pets should also
locate several pet-friendly hotels or motels along
their evacuation routes.
Certified service animals for persons with dis
abilities are exempt from any restrictions at emer
agency shelters and lodging facilities.
Residents should also consider the needs of
their pets as they build their disaster supply kits.
Pet owners should store at least three days worth
of food, bottled water, and prescription medi
cines for their animals.
Other important items such as leashes, pet
bowls, and litter boxes should also be included.
Residents should also bring all veterinary records
with them if they evacuate, as this important in
formation can easily be lost or destroyed during
a disaster.
The 2011 Atlantic Hurricane Season runs
from June 1 through November 30. For more in
formation on the Florida Division of Emergency
Management and to GET A PLAN!, please visit:

ter at www.Twitter.com/flsert and on Facebook at
