In Wake Of


HCI Closure,


Transfers to


Glades County

Transfers to affect local
county
BY PATTY BRANT
Glades County Democrat
Cost cutting at the state level will soon be
affecting Hendry and Glades residents in a very
direct way. Hendry Correctional Institution will
close, taking 137 full time jobs for local folks with
it.
According to Gretl Plessinger of the Depart
ment of Corrections, HCI employees have been
offered the opportunity to transfer to other DOC
facilities in Glades, Charlotte and Broward coun
ties, which have been holding vacancies for these
employees.
These jobs include correctional officers, class
sification officers, who determine where inmates
will live and what types of programs they require,
nurses and maintenance personnel.
Employees not opting to relocate will be eli
gible only for their normal separation package
including any annual and sick leave they have
acquired.
Currently, DOC has helped all those have
requested transfers. An exact number was not
available at the time of printing but a number of
employees had requested transfer to the Moore
Haven Correctional Facility.
The state is closing older facilities like HCI,
which are more costly to operate, Ms. FP ... 1.. I
said. The Department of Corrections expects to

Eatery Promises Best Cuban Sandwich on the Lake


Offers full-pound "Big John"
to daring gourmands
BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
Glades County Democrat
When Denix Lopez decided it was time to start
a restaurant in Moore Haven, he i .., ,.i ii iout all
of those bad economic indicators affecting such
a decision. He thought about them long, and he
thought about them hard, but eventually decided
to take a chance on Moore Haven and open his
first ever restaurant.


Inland Birdwatching

Page 13


The response since then has been tremen
dous, he assures, eager to talk up just how many
Cuban sandwiches he sold in his first month of
operation. He isn't boasting, and admits that in
order for the business to succeed, locals will have
to frequent the business and keep on buying the
delicious sandwiches he's serving up.
And why wouldn't they? One recent customer
proclaimed a sandwich he had just enjoyed as the
best one on the lake. Even the Big John, originally
a menu filler item, has developed a strong follow
ing.
Consider the item choice: a full pound of meat,
with lettuce, tomato, pickles, black olives, served

up on four slices of Texas Toast. It's enough to
make most men draw back in fear, but here in
Moore Haven, regular folks are stepping up to
meet and beat the challenge.
"The thing is so huge I don't even have a box
to put it in," said Lopez.
Named after the cook, John Billings, the
item has become the second most popular
seller at the restaurant.
But just how big is it? Is it bigger than John
himself?

save a combined $30.8 million every year by close
ing these facilities, and another $25 million in re
pairs. Most of the savings will come through the
decrease in employees.
Opened in 1977, HCI is one of the oldest facili
ties in the state. Because of its rural location, Ms.
Plessinger said, it is also more difficult to staff.
In addition to HCI, DOC will close two other

programs (Lowell CI Boot Camp and Sumter Boot
Camp) and a Tallahassee Road Prison.
The DOC decided to close these facilities at
this time because, for the first time in quite a
while, prison populations have leveled off after
steady increases in past years, leaving an oppor
tunity for consolidation.
HCI had some 722 inmates, serving sentences
from one year and a day to life. Some of these
inmates could be transferred to Moore Haven
Correctional.
The site is actually owned by the State of Flor
ida, not DOC, which is exploring ideas of what to
do with it once it closes.
The property could be sold or utilized by an
other agency, Ms. Plessinger said.

Silver Alert



Bill Signed

Governor Rick Scott signed into law the
Florida Silver Alert Plan, which helps protect
Florida's vulnerable senior citizens. Silver Alerts
assist local law enforcement in the rescue of a
missing elderly person with a cognitive impair
ment. The alerts broadcast important informa
tion via the media and highway message signs
to enlist citizens in the search for an endan
gered senior.
Since 2008, 44 seniors have been recovered
directly due to activated Silver Alerts, out of a
total of 321 alerts.
According to the Alzheimer's Association,
more than 60 percent of those with Alzheimer's
will wander and become lost at some point.
While most who wander do so on foot and
are ultimately found within a few miles, those
who become lost while driving a vehicle may
wander much further from home, underscor
ing the importance of Silver Alerts.
Citizens can sign up to receive free Silver
Alert e-mail messages at www.elderaffairs.

Snake Predator May


Benefit Endangered Bird


UF study finds benefit for
bird

BY ROBERT WELLS
Univ. of Florida
An endangered Florida bird may have some
unexpected help in its struggle for survival, ac
cording to a new University of Florida study.
UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
researchers found that rat snakes, once thought
to threaten the endangered, red-cockaded wood
pecker, actually benefit the birds. The study is
published in the current issue of the . ,hii ..
journal The Condor.
The findings could help landowners, conser
vationists and those enrolled in programs such
as Safe Harbor, which allows those with endan
gered species on their land to harvest timber if
they agree to help promote the species' recovery.
Forestry and forest products contributed more
than $4.4 billion to Florida's economy in 2008.
Red-cockaded woodpeckers are small, black
and-white birds, about 8.5 inches long, that live
in longleaf pine forests and are named for the red
spot on the male bird's head.
Katie Sieving, a wildlife ecology and conser
vation professor, and co-author John Kappes, a
former doctoral student in the department, found
that rat snakes help the birds by eating species
that commonly steal red-cockaded woodpecker
nest cavities.
Red-cockaded woodpeckers nest in cavi
ties they create in living pine trees and naturally
protect themselves from rat snakes by pecking
around the cavity and causing sap to flow.
"Any snake that climbs the tree gets sap stuck
under its scales and, more often than not, will fall
out of the tree before being able to eat the red
cockaded woodpeckers," Sieving said.
Since i, l.r. - . such as red-bellied wood
peckers, don't maintain the sap flow, they are eas
ily disposed of by rat snakes, and red-cockaded
woodpeckers can return to their nests.
"It is counterintuitive that a principal predator
of a particular species can also indirectly benefit
that species," Kappes said. "But if it eats its en
emies at higher rates than it eats the particular
focal species, then it can. This pattern has been
seen repeatedly in ecological communities, and
now we have found evidence of such complex
interactions in the red-cockaded woodpecker
cavity system."
The study was conducted at two Florida sites

vision. Tree cavities were monitored regularly for
signs of nesting and predation.
Despite steadily increasing red-cockaded
woodpecker numbers, there are still fewer than
4,000 of the birds in Florida. At one time the spe
cies numbered in the millions across the U.S., but
significant habitat reduction caused their decline.
Preserving red-cockaded woodpeckers is im
portant because their preservation also requires
protecting their surroundings, Kappes said.
"It has some pretty demanding requirements
for relatively old forests and relatively extensive
amounts of it to maintain a population," Kappes
said. "If we maintain red-cockaded woodpecker
populations that are viable, then we are going to
be maintaining chunks of this ecosystem that are
also viable."

Divine Revelations From

Those Who Come Recently
From God
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
One night while eating at a local restaurant,
a toddler in a booth nearby told his parents "I
wanna box!" He said it several times, apparently
watching others get to-go boxes or perhaps re
membering you could get food to take home.
It reminded me of an incident with my daugh
ter during her toddler years. We were at a res
taurant with her in a high-chair and a couple
entered, putting their slightly-younger baby in a
high chair.
My daughter said to me "Daddy, I want to take
that baby home!" The other couple looked; an
expression I judged to be somewhere between
"Don't even think about it!" and casual amuse
ment.
I asked my daughter "What would you do
with the baby when you got it home?" and she
answered "I'd feed it." Being a philosopher, I con
templated that I had a young mother on my hands.
Long before being capable of totally feeding her
self, she is thinking about "babies" and "feeding
them." That's what she did with her dolls.
She also watched as we fed her goldfish and,
later, her cat. Here in the midst of child develop
ment is recognition of a basic human need and
the call to satisfy it for those who may be a bit
more helpless.
The little boy who wanted his to-go box was
more self sufficient even if he seemed to be about
the same age as I remembered my daughter's
comments.
Maybe stocking up, maybe not wanting a
good meal to come to an end, maybe a reminder
to the adults to get something for later when the
munchies set in, who knows; but there he was
in all of his two feet in height proclaiming to the
world that food is important.
It is no accident that the Lord took food,
blessed it, shared it, gave it to His followers and
told them that the sacred meal will bring Him
among them each time they celebrate it. This was
a central act in His earthly ministry(Luke 22: 1ff);
taking, blessing, breaking, sharing; and with it the
cup that followed.
People are of the earthy, earthy, and in need of
sustenance for their very survival; the Lord giving
a new meaning to the sacred meal of the Pass
over always celebrated by the faithful of His day,
and His followers coming to know of His pres


ence in that breaking of bread thereafter.
How many times have I heard people say
"We're good friends, I've had them over for din
ner lots of times!" when the bonds of the meal are
reflective of much more than just eating together.
One of the great miracles that I've observed is
how God always takes the ordinary and gives it
new direction, new meaning, new purpose, new
life.
A great thing about what God has revealed is
His use of what is everyday to us, earthly, mun
dane, common. There He is in the midst of it all;
may we never cease to see Him in all that we say,
do, share, celebrate.

Firework Christianity
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First united Methodist Church
The Fourth of July and fireworks go hand in
hand in the United States. We impatiently wait
for darkness to settle in, as we join the crowds at
the city park or the riverfront. Soon, our waiting
pays off as a small streak of light hisses upwards,
and the sky is filled with an explosions, colorful
sparkles and lovely designs.
Did you know that there is approximately the
same amount of gunpowder in a firecracker as
in a rifle shell? The firecracker's explosion power
is unfocused, and makes a loud noise. The rifle
shell, on the other hand, focuses that power in
a specific direction and delivers an enormous
punch. One makes a lot of noise. The other gets
results. It's a matter of focus. It's a matter of
what's needed or what's desired.
We can be a firecracker Christian or a rifle shot
Christian. One makes a lot of noise. The other
gets results. The third option is to be a fireworks
Christian. Fireworks begin by focusing power to
get them to a desired location and then explode
with all kinds of ways to catch people's attention
and amaze them in all kinds of wonderful ways.
I still believe in the USA. Something still hap
pens to me when I see people waving flags and
hear patriotic songs being sung. Call me optimis
tic, but I still believe in one nation under God. In
God I still trust. And I still celebrate the Fourth of
July and anticipate fireworks as part of that cel
ebration.
I want to tell you that I still anticipate fireworks
out of my faith as well. There is too much to be
done here in our corner of God's world for us to
quit taking risks and stepping out on faith. Our
calling is to go forth into the world with the au
thority we receive from God and make explosive
things happen.

You see, I still anticipate fireworks. I still an
ticipate miracles. I still anticipate excitement and
enthusiasm, healing, and conversion. I expect
fireworks to happen every time God calls us and
sends us out. I expect my faith and my church to
make a difference in my world. And I want you to
expect it, too!
I believe the colonists trusted and depended
on God when they made and adopted the Dec
laration of Independence. Because of their trust,
God blessed us as a nation.
I believe that if we remember to trust and
depend on God today, God will use us to make
fireworks happen; and again, God will bless us
as a nation.

Declaration of Dependence
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
As we approach our 235th year as a Nation
we are all familiar with "The Declaration Of In
dependence." However that document of our
founding is also a "Declaration of Dependence."
It declares before God and our fellow citizens our
utter dependence upon the beneficence of our
beloved Creator. And how true is this part of the
"declaration."
Without His air we could not breathe. With
out His provisions we could not eat or be clothed
and housed. Without His grace and kindness we
could not live each day with the hope of eternal
life. Without the blessed Savior we could not
grasp the abundant life in the here and now.
The thought of being independent may come
in our minds when our bellies are full and our
bank account flush. But there is no way to be
genuinely independent while spinning at such
a rapid speed on this old blue marble. The very
creative power of our holy God is what keeps our
tiny planet in the orbit around our tiny sun.
On our very best days, with our very best hair,
in our very best clothes, enjoying our very best
health, we are but struggling pilgrims in the grip
of God's mercy!
Our worth is worthless except in the heart of a
loving God. We are creatures made in His likeness
to honor His Will. This is our calling and great
1."i I .I. Yet without His indulgence we would
be penniless and pitiable and pathetic persons of
carbon and mist.
O yes, we declare for all to read our depen
dence upon Almighty God! He alone sustains!
Psalm 139:7 asks the pertinent questions, "Where
can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from
Your Presence?" We need to "Pray For America."

Goodwill Industries Expands Housing Program in nearby County


14 New Units Now Occupied
at Palmetto Ranch
Apartments

Residents and supporters of Goodwill's "Pal
metto Ranch" housing community recently cut
the ribbon on phase two of the apartment com
plex. Palmetto Ranch is an income-sensitive,
independent-living community designed specific
cally for the needs of individuals with physical dis
abilities.
The housing complex, which is located on the
west side of LaBelle, initially opened in early 2010.
The expansion of Palmetto Ranch brings 14 more
units of disability-accessible housing to Hendry
County.
Palmetto Ranch resident Debbie Marshall
spoke at the June 9 ribbon cutting ceremony.
Marshall utilizes a power wheelchair as the result
of a vehicle accident nearly .-, i ,. ago.
"I couldn't afford rent anymore," Marshall ex
plained in a heartfelt speech. "Collecting disabil
ity, we don't get that much income. By having this
here, it makes it easier for us to survive. Things
are so much easier for me now."
Rent at Goodwill's disability-accessible house
ing complexes is subsidized by the Department
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Resi
dents pay a monthly rent that is based on a per
centage of their income.
Goodwill's accessible housing features ame
cities such as lowered countertops and cabinets,
roll-in showers, and widened doorways, all of


which are necessary to make a home truly access
sible to people in wheelchairs.
The agency currently operates apartment
complexes in Lee, Collier, and Hendry counties.


Goodwill hopes to expand its housing efforts in
Hendry County by building an apartment com
plex in Clewiston in the next two years.
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida pro


vides programs and services to help people with
disabilities and other disadvantages become more
independent. For more information about Good
will, please visit http://www.goodwillswfl.org.

With Recent Rainy


Events, Wildfire Risk


Beginning to Diminish


PHOTO / MARISOL PEREZ


Highlands and Glades
Counties at less of a risk
The wildfire risk is starting to diminish with
every storm that passes through.
"We seem to be settling into a summer wet
season pattern", says State Meteorologist Sean
Luchs.
Since the storms in some areas are bringing
more lightning than rain, firefighters are still con
cerned about new lightning ignited wildfires.
Wildfires may be smaller in size due to the
rain soaking into parched brush. Any period of
no or little rainfall that allows the fuels (brush)
to dry out again could prompt an increase in fire
activity.
This break provided by the recent rains, give
residents time to prepare their homes and com
munity.
Florida's fire season is 12 months long. We
have fires throughout the year.
The most active part of the year is typically De
cember through June.
Generally, the area experiences the greatest
number of fires during April, May and June. The
leading single cause of fires, during the late spring
and early summer in our area over the years is
lightning.


Non-lightning caused fires, that is, man caused
fires, account for over 75 percent of fires during
the remainder of the year.

Wildfire Tips
*Homeowners are moving into the wooded
areas; they like that "nature feeling."
This trend of more homes being built in high
fire risk areas is expected to continue.
Homeowners who live in these areas need to
create a zone of "Lean, Clean and Green" space
around your home. (a) Lean -Trim .-. I .II...
away from home. (b) Clean -No accumulation of
dead, -. I .i. or flammable debris. (c) Green
Less flammable plants that are healthy, watered
and green during dry season.
*As the area transitions into wet season, the
Florida Division of Forestry will take this oppor
tunity to prepare high risk communities for wild
fires. State Firefighters will be mowing firebreaks,
chopping down dead or flammable ,, -, I ,i i....
and burning off the i ,i v .I. I ,ii. 1i that has been
accumulating for decades.
Anyone needing additional information may
contact the local Division of Forestry at 863-655
6407 (Highlands and Glades Counties). Please

meeting requesting Al Brown, representative of
the Washington Park Coalition For Progress, to
submit building use plans and other documents
related to managing the new community center
to be built with one-cent discretionary sales
tax revenue.
12. Landfill Closure Financial Assurance Letter
to FDEP (Taylor)
Board moved to accept the suggestion of
Consultant Ali Khatami, RE., and Ph.D. of Globex
Engineering & Development, to use the Special
Report option for providing financial assurance to


DEP that the county will maintain adequate fund
ing to monitor the closed landfill cell in Ortona.
Cost is estimated to be $2000 to prepare the re
port.
The current escrow balance is in excess of
$180,000. The cell has been closed for two years
normal expected expense to the county and it
is anticipated that the highest costs, mostly for
leachate collection and removal, have already oc
curred.
13. Transfer .'.1 i, . I. 11 i.ii, .-: Fees (Taylor)
Board acknowledged and approved Waste
Management's offer to defer the hauling fee rats
increase to $40 per ton until August 30, 2011.
14. Tipping Fees Considerations/Actions (Tay
lor)
Board moved to change the transfer station
tipping fees, effective August 30, 2011 to $52 per
ton for the City of Moore Haven and $54 for
all other depositors.

County Attorney
County Attoreny Richard Pringle gave his as
sessment of the Curry Island lease and plans for
maximizing the county's lease.
County Attorney Richard Pringle stated he had
submitted to DEP the county's choices for enhanc
ing the County's lease of part of the Curry Island
area following the meeting with LOHA, which he
said went very well with candid discussions.
Pringle stated he is working on the ordinance
for flow control of waste stream generated in
the county to be required to be deposited at the
transfer station. Commissioner Giesler asked him,
"Will it stick?" and Pringle replied, "I'll answer
later."
He stated Larry Hilton would explain the
staff's plan to address LDRs and other compare
hensive land use planning revisions needed to
comply with recent changes to DCA processes,
stating we would work for sound LDR and devel
opment code provisions.
Community Development Director Larry
Hilton explained the plans to modify the admin
istrative LDR process, subdivision regulations,
planned developments, and industrial/commer
cial districts.
He anticipates i, . n .I i, ir changes ready


for Board approval to be effective October 1. Prin
gle stated more complex plan revisions would fol
low after October 1 but the most significant ones
would be addressed first.

County Manager and

Department Heads
Renovations to the old health clinic and the
utilization of impact fees reported on.
County Manager Wendell Taylor stated he had
remitted the request letter to Water Management
for granting by WMD of acreage on Curry Island,
part of which the County recently leased. Action
is expected in October.
Taylor told the Board he had provided each
a copy of $9,283 costs recap and pictures of the
renovation of the old health clinic facility.
He stated he may come back to ask about
putting in a conference room and ADA approved
restrooms, which will be required anyway when
the building interior is remodeled for a tenant.
Road Sup't Avant Brown told the Board he
needed direction on utilizing the impact fees col
elected for roads and parks.
He recommended the paving of Thatcher Blvd
and North Avenue in Moore Haven, noting that
these streets qualify as feeder roads for using im
pact fee funds. He said he could not determine
roads that qualify in the northeast part of the
county.
He suggested working on the County's Indi
an Mound Park, noting the wooden playground
equipment is deteriorating and much is in unsafe
condition and the front fence could use work.
Taylor told him to remove any playground equip
ment that was unsafe.
Commissioner Storter suggested that benches
and picnic tables would be more useful for events
held at the park such as the Cane Grinding Festival
and weddings.
Beck advocated for new playground equip
ment. Impact fees collected must be utilized be
fore they expire and have to be returned to permit
applicants.
Chief Financial Clerk Brenda Choban stated
there is $158,000 in the road impact fees for east/
north part of county, $127,000 for the west/south
part of the county, and $16,000 in the west/south
parks impact fee funds, and $8,100 in EMS impact
fee fund.
Decision on how to best utilize the funds will
be made before October 1, 2012.

Commissioners Items and

Comments
Property Appraiser may have to hire additional
staff to aid in discovering business moving to the
area due to the elimination of the Business Tax
Receipt.
Commissioner Storter commented on the
letter the Board received from the Property Ap
praiser stating that the Board's action eliminating
the Business Tax Receipt (formerly called Occu
national License) may result in his office having
to hire additional staff for discovery of businesses
moving into the county and not filing a personal
property report with his office.
She asked if Code Enforcement and/or Ani
mal Control employees could not assist in such
discovery to keep down the staffing costs. Chair
Echols stated all constitutional officers had been
requested to submit budgets with no increases
from last year.
Luckey's letter suggested he would need to in
crease his budget in the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
Meeting notes prepared by Donna Storter Long.

Crested Caracara.
BY MARGARET ENGLAND
Hendry-Glades Audubon
Binoculars are a birder's eyes on the world,
and they can greatly affect the quality of a bird
outing. They come in different sizes and magni
fiction.
When selecting binoculars make sure the
power (or magnification) is at least 7 power and
the second number ("40" for an "8 X 40" pair of
glasses) is four to five times as large as the power
(e.g., "8 X 40," "10 X42," etc.).
For information about the selection of bin
oculars visit the FWC's Great Florida and Wildlife
Trail Birding Resources link at f iii. in. Il. I
ingtrail.com.
The Crested Caracara is a large, long-legged
tropical raptor that has a black cap, black body
and a white tail with wide black tip. The bare skin
on its face is bright orange-red when it is at rest,
preening or engaged in other non-aggressive be
haviors. When threatened the facial skin changes
to pumpkin color and finally pale yellow.
The crest at the end of the Caracara's cap lays
flat when it is comfortable and not threatened,
but it will raise its crest when it feels threatened,
frightened or is on alert. This bird is mostly silent
but during courtship or in the early morning or
evening it may throw its head back until it almost
touches its shoulders and make a high, crackling
sound that resembles its Brazilian name.


Caracara nest as early as September with the
height of their nesting season in January or Feb
ruary. Their diets include carrions, insects, mam-
mals, and invertebrates including fish, snakes,
turtles, birds and mammals.
It is estimated that 400-500 birds of the 'threat
ened" Caracara may remain in Florida. Crested
Caracara are often reported in dry or wet prairie
areas with scattered cabbage palms or are seen
eating carrion along roadways in the counties sur
rounding Lake Okeechobee.
You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audu
bon volunteers on the July 16 birdwatching trip
to STA5. Meet at the Clewiston McDonalds at 7:15
a.m. or STA5 gate at 8:30 a.m.

and lunch. For a schedule of STA5 trips through
December 2012 visit the HGAS website at: www.

Eatery

Continued From Page 1



"It's bigger," Denix promises.
Already, the coffee and deli place is
forming a fan club of sorts. A few testi
monials highlight the food and service.
Not bad for a place that's been open
for just a little more than one month.
Customers post their experience on the
business's Facebook page (search for
Small Town Coffee & Deli).
"They have really good food. My
family is already hooked!" writes Tanya
Brown.
"I recommend you folks in sur
rounding areas go eat there!" says Flora
Lee.
"First time in cafe and it was the best
time ever. Great food, great customer
service and of course the best owner
and employees," said Janelynn Garcia.
It's a satisfying result to a tricky en-
deavor, said Lopez, who came up with
the idea for the business because his
children go to school in Moore Haven,
and he grew tired of the regular food
routine.
"I think it's time for a change," he
thought to himself.
The restaurant was initially going to
be a simple coffee shop, but residents
who stopped by while Lopez and his partner put
the finishing touches on the location said they
hoped he would offer some food, too.


The restaurant specializes in Boar's Head cold
cuts, and even sells it by the pound for anyone
who can't find it at the local grocery store any
more.


Located at 401 U.S. 27, Suite 3, right next to
Mickey's Bait and Tackle, the business is open
Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and
on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.


He invites everyone to come try out the res
taurant.
"I'm very excited. We just need the commu
nity to support us so we can stay here," he said.
