The Terriers started their second season under Head Football Coach Maurice Belser Jr. Head Football Coach Billy Sparacio enters his third season with the Lions. The Lions came out roaring in the rst half of the game scoring 24 points, including a 41yard TD by Diaz, on their third scoring play of the night. The Terriers were able to off set their slow start and numerous penalties in the rst half, with big plays by Terrier players. The Terriers scored with an impressive 43yard TD run by Darrion Cohen, who bounced off several Lion defenders, and broke through tackles all the way to the end zone. In the second quarter, following a Terrier TD, senior lineman Devontae Campbell, took the QB handoff and plunged his way right into the end zone for a successful Terrier two point conversion. The Lions held a 24-14 lead at the half, but the Terriers would return in the second half with the ght they needed to pull off the district win. The Terriers failed on a long eld goal attempt early in the 3rd quarter but the Terrier defense with tackles by Blake Ridgdill, Jodi Wooten and a pass broke up by Charlie Ford, held the Lions, who had taken over on downs. Terriers Secure First District Win Community leaders and members turn out for vital meetingBY JUAN LOPEZ Glades County DemocratLast Thursday morning, 17 members from the Florida House and Senate listened to comments and concerns from community leaders and members from around the lake in regards to redistricting plans. Senator Don Gaetz (R) and Rep. Denis Baxley (R) chaired the early morning session held at the Hendry County Health Department auditorium. A crowd slowly trickled in as the meeting began. A number of maps that had proposed redraws of the districts lined a wall and were mentioned in an opening statement by Rep. Baxley. As of that morning, 51 complete and partial redraws were submitted to the committee for consideration and more were promised to come. The basic purpose for the redistricting is to equalize as much as possible district populations so that everyone has a fair chance to vote and candidates have a fair chance when running. With Florida's total population numbers having risen, so have the number of representatives the state has in U.S. House, from 25 to 27. How those two extra seats will be distributed in the state and who will vote for them is another topic of the redistricting hearings. During the session, the representatives heard from leaders and activists from as far as Highlands County on a wide range of concerns of redistricting. A common vein shared by all speakers called for the counties of Highlands, Glades, Redistricting Meeting Hears Comments PHOTO / D.

LAKEPORT NEWS All emergency assistance personnel get in freeIts hard to believe that it has been 10 years since our way of life as Americans was turned upside down in one of the darkest days in our history, Sept. 11, 2001. It was any day like any other day. Normal folks just like you and your neighbors; going to work, taking the kids to school, remen, police, and EMS. In one split second, every person in our nation became one. As we stopped and watched the events of that September morning unfold, we saw these every day people go into the buildings and never come out. Why? They knew the danger. Why did they go in? Because that’s what they do, and they do it sel essly. They knew that their friends, neighbors, and complete strangers needed them and they were there for them. As the days have now turned into years we will never forget. Join us Saturday night, Sept. 10th at the Hendry County Motorsports park as we pay Tribute to those who gave their lives sel essly on 9/11. All, re dept, sheriff, police, military, state troopers, FWC, any emergency services personnel will get in absolutely free.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 8, 2011 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon September 17 is the sixth year that Hendry and Glades County have participated in the Florida Fall North American Migration Count (NAMC). The area of a count is not a circle, but the boundaries of a County. The idea is to have a contiguous interlocking set of non-overlapping counts across North America. Volunteers will be using various modes of travel including cars, boats, and bicycles or will be on foot during their search for birds. The following teams, who will be meeting at 7 a.m., need additional counters, compilers and photographers: Lake Okeechobee, LaBelle, STA5, Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest, Lakeport Area and South Hendry (833/835). Contact Margaret England for copy of the report form or to volunteer to help with the count for an hour or more on Sept. 17. Most of the teams will be surveying wetland areas where they will identify birds by sight or sound. Reports of Owls, Woodpeckers and ScrubJ ays found in other habitats are needed in order to get a more accurate snapshot of the birds in inland Florida. During the 2010 NAMC teams did not observe Florida scrub-jays. The Florida Scrub-Jay is identi ed as a legally protected Threatened Species by the United State Fish and Wildlife Service and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. It is Florida's only endemic bird species (occurring nowhere else). They prefer living in Florida's scrub oak and scrubby Flatwoods habitat with nutrient-poor soil where trees are 3-10 feet tall. Each family will maintain a permanent territory ranging from ve to 50 acres, but the average range is about 25 acres. This large songbird has a blue gray head, wings and tail with a pale gray-brown back and underparts. Juveniles who are less than about ve months old will have a dusky brown head and neck, but the rest of the body will be like the adult. It often makes a harsh and scratch call with the female making a dry rattling sound. They eat a variety of acorns, seeds, peanuts, insects, tree frogs, turtles, snakes, lizards and young mice. Occasionally they have been observed robbing other birds of their eggs or nestlings. Acorns from a variety of oaks are buried by the Scrub Jays in the fall to be eaten in the winter or spring, They are one of the few cooperative breeding birds in North America with families ranging in size from two to eight birds. The young will remain in their parent's habitat for several years where they help rear the young, act as sentries who watch for predators and defend the territory against other Florida Scrub-Jay groups. If you would like to volunteer for the Sept. 17 NAMC or join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for the Oct. 15 STA5 bird trip, send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5birding@embarqmail.com with your name 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 863674-0695 or 863-517-0202. Bring water, snacks, and lunch.

Reading is the most important skill that children need to master to be successful in school and life. However, kids increasingly are struggling with this most basic of academic abilities. The United States currently has one of the lowest literacy rates in the developed world. According to the National Report Card, the country is experiencing a literacy crisis, with 68 percent of fourth graders and 69 percent of eighth graders testing below grade level in reading. When children have dif culty reading, they quickly can fall behind their peers. Luckily, there are ways to improve almost any child's reading pro ciency. "Telling children to try harder is not the key to developing better readers. Rather, students need to be taught the building blocks of words: phonograms and spelling rules," says Denise Eide, a teacher and author of the new book, "Uncovering the Logic of English." There are many things parents can do to help: Explain writing is codeMany students guess wildly while reading because they have never realized words are made of individual sounds blended together. Show them how letters and groups of letters represent sounds. Then practice blending the sounds to form words. Teach all the soundsMany letters say more than one sound. For example, the letter "S" sounds different in the word "sad" than the word "is." Many students misread simple words, because they don't know all the sounds. Make it funLearning the basics doesn't need to be boring. Engage young children through play. Practice the phonograms with games, large motor activities and art projects. Cover pictures Many young students struggle with the left to right eye movement of reading. Allow students to look at the pictures then cover them with a blank sheet of paper while reading. Covering pictures makes it easier to focus on text. Teach all nine ‘Silent E’ rulesMany students know only one reason for a silent nal "E" -the vowel says its name because of the "E." This explains words like "game" and "ripe," but leaves many kids struggling to read "have" and "give." Learning the nine reasons, including that English words do not end in "V," prevents students from needing to memorize thousands of exceptions. Find answersToo often we answer questions about reading with "that is an exception." This frustrates many bright students and discourages them from reading. Rather than dismissing words as exceptions, look for answers and explanations. English is more logical than most Americans think. Answers to questions about English reading and spelling can be found in "Uncovering the Logic of English" and by visiting www.logicofenglish.com. "Many students complain English spelling appears inconsistent, especially highly logical children who may grow up to be scientists or mathematicians," says Eide. "By teaching students how English works you will improve their reading abilities and encourage them to read!" Turn Your Child into a Better Reader You can helpBY LEE MILLMAN Center for Medicare and Medicaid Health care fraud drives up costs for everyone in the health care system and endangers Medicare's ability to serve future generations. To address this growing problem, the federal government continues to expand efforts to recover improper payments and prevent fraud. Signi cant progress in the ght against health care fraud has already been made as shown by the federal government's recovery of a record $4 billion last year from people who attempted to defraud seniors and taxpayers. The Affordable Care Act provides additional resources and tools to enable the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) to expand efforts to prevent and ght fraud, waste and abuse including: Creating a rigorous screening process for providers and suppliers enrolling in Medicare to keep fraudulent providers out of the program. Authorizing CMS to temporarily stop enrollment of new providers and suppliers when Medicare spots trends that may indicate health care fraud. Authorizing CMS to temporarily stop payments to providers and suppliers suspected of fraud for investigation and case building. Fraud prevention efforts focus on moving CMS beyond its former "pay and chase" recovery operations to a more proactive "prevention and detection" model that will help prevent fraud and abuse before payment is made. A good example is the recent CMS announcement that for the rst time, through the use of innovative predictive modeling technology similar to that used by credit card companies, the agency will have the ability to use risk scoring techniques to ag high risk claims and providers for additional review and take action to stop payments and remove providers from the program when necessary. Yet, as important as these aggressive new initiatives are, the rst and best line of defense against fraud remains you the health care consumer.Protect your Medicare bene tsGuard your Medicare number. Fraud schemes often depend on crooks rst getting hold of people's Medicare numbers. So treat yours as you would a credit card. Don't share it with anyone except your doctor or other Medicare-approved health care provider and don't allow anyone else to use it. Look out for suspicious activities. Be wary of salespeople who knock on your door or call you uninvited and try to sell you a product or service. Don't allow anyone except your doctor or other Medicare-approved provider to review your medical records or recommend services. And never let anyone give you "free" equipment or supplies in exchange for your Medicare number. If you have Original Medicare, check your Medicare Summary Notice. Use a calendar or personal journal to record all of your doctor appointments and tests. Then review your quarterly claims statement to make sure Medicare wasn't billed for something you didn't get. If you spot what you think is an error, call the doctor's of ce or health care provider and ask about it. If they can't resolve your questions or concerns, call 1-800-MEDICARE. Report suspected cases of fraud. If you think someone has misused your Medicare number, call 1-800-MEDICARE. If you suspect identity theft, or feel like you gave your personal information to someone you shouldn't have, call the Federal Trade Commission's ID Theft Hotline at 1-877-438-4338.

Despite the recent rainfall, Lake Okeechobee remains far below normalBY RANDY SMITH SFWMDAugust rainfall provided a steady soaking of the 16-county region, but much more rainfall is needed in anticipation of transitioning into the dry season next month. August rainfall was of an inch above average, providing an average of 8.51 inches of rain throughout South Florida. “The daily rainfall we experienced through much of August was ideal to recharge groundwater and surface water levels,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “However, we are entering the home stretch of the wet season, and we’re hopeful that this type of rainfall continues before the dry season sets in.” From the Upper Kissimmee’s 8.59 inches in A ugust to 9.33 inches in Big Cypress Preserve, rainfall helped to ll canals, lakes, rivers and groundwater. The rainfall was particularly bene cial on the east coast, where drought conditions were substantially alleviated. For the month, eastern Palm Beach County saw 9.84 inches of rain, 1.78 inches above normal, and eastern Broward County received 9.71 inches of rain, 2.28 inches above normal. However, Lake Okeechobee remains far below normal for this time of year. As the back-up water supply for South Florida, the lake is at 10.67 feet NGVD – more than three feet below normal for this time of year. Hurricane Irene remained offshore and drew moisture away from Florida, resulting in lowered rainfall totals, but the overall continuous rainfall throughout the month allowed the SFWMD to store as much rainwater as possible in preparation for the dry season. Meteorologists are predicting a drier-than-normal dry season. In South Florida, the daily afternoon thunderstorms typically begin to taper off by mid-October. In the Kissimmee region north of Lake Okeechobee, rainfall totals typically decline even sooner, by the beginning of October. If the remainder of the wet season does not provide signi cant rainfall, such as a well-placed tropical system, the water shortage is likely to continue through the spring. Water shortage orders remain in place due to low lake levels and the pending dry season. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 T T h e G l a d e s C o u n t y S c h o o l B o a r d W i l l H o l d A P o l i c y W o r k s h o p O n S e p t e m b e r 2 2 2 0 1 1 F o l l o w i n g T h e R e g u l a r M e e t i n g S c h e d u l e d T o B e g i n A t 9 : 0 0 a m I n T h e G l a d e s C o u n t y S c h o o l B o a r d M e e t i n g R o o m 400 10th Street, SW Moore Haven, Florida 33471 N O T I C E SHEWMAKERANIMALHOSPITAL1095 N.

One for You, One for MeBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchOn the outskirts of a small town was a big pecan tree growing just inside the cemetery fence. One day, two boys sat underneath the tree, out of sight, and began dividing the nuts they had gathered. Several dropped and rolled down toward the fence. Another boy came along on his bicycle, and heard voices from the cemetery. Closing in, he heard counting: “One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.” Terri ed, he jumped on his bike and took off, almost running over an old man with a cane. “Come quick,” said the boy, “I heard Satan and the Lord down at the cemetery dividing up souls.” The man replied, “Beat it kid. I can’t be bothered with such nonsense. Can’t you see it’s hard for me to walk?” When the boy insisted, the man hobbled slowly to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, “One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me.” The old man whispered, “Boy, you’ve been tellin’ me the truth.” Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence, gripping the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as they tried to get a glimpse. At last they heard, “One for y ou, one for me. That’s all, now let’s go get those nuts by the fence and we’ll be done.” They say the old man made it back to town a full ve minutes ahead of the kid on the bike. Ninety-nine years ago, the unsinkable ship sank and 1,500 passengers died. At some of the Titanic exhibits, people received boarding passes to the Titanic with the name of an actual passenger. It made the experience more personal. It really hit home when patrons stood at a large wall which had two lists, reminiscent of the same lists that were posted after the tragedy in the W hite Star Line’s of ces. Imagine anxious relatives waiting to hear the fate of a passenger they loved, and a company rep occasionally coming in to add a name to one of two lists: “Known to be saved” and “Known to be lost.” One visitor had the name of a passenger who was saved. His wife and kids had names on the “lost” list. It’s sobering when you think about it, because family and friends and everyone we know is also on one of two lists: “Known to be saved” or “Known to be lost.” Not rich or poor. Not liberal or conservative. Not Religion X or Religion Y. Just “saved” or “lost.” And what about us? At the end when the Lord and Satan are dividing up nuts like you and me, which list will we be on?The Resurrection of a Bombed-Out ChurchBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of the historic Churches in France had been bombed during the Second World War. The damage was extensive. The people saved all of the glass from the bombed-out stained glass windows; those illuminated scenes from the lives and works of the faithful generations ago. Pictures taken years before showed the windows that inspired the lives of the faithful at a time when very few could read or write. They were the literal “picture books” that conveyed the stories, parables, examples, memories; strengthening and inspiring the faithful for generations. Then they were shattered and their messages were taken away. In the midst of it all, the wreckage and destruction, the devastation and ruin, the pieces of glass were saved by those who remembered and knew what they meant. After it was all over, the pieces of glass were returned and the Church was rebuilt. The old windows, from the Middle Ages, could not be duplicated, but the glass was made into patterns and the light would enter the sanctuary once more through them. I remember sitting there one Sunday morning as I learned of the history of the more “modern” windows in the Church. Now everyone could read and write; the glass that once taught the faith now gave a soft light for Bibles and prayer books, hymnals and lectionary readings shared by all who worship there. The Church had been re-formed; keeping the ancient faith on which it was founded and re-using the things dedicated to God in a new way. Those warriors who would have destroyed the Church could not do so. God’s people would not let it happen. The shattered remnants, so useless to the passer-by and the armies that trod over them, were given a new life. I see that new life every now and then in “discards.” We live in a wasteful society, we are quick to reject, we throw out when some re-use can be made. There is an account of a widow in Luke’s gospel (15:8ff) who has ten coins, loses one, but searches until she nds it. She is economical, not wasteful, and in fact rejoices with her friends when she nds the one that was lost (v. 9). The shepherd who searches the lost sheep (Luke 15:3ff) even if he has ninety-nine others, rejoices over the lost one that is returned. There is joy in Heaven and on earth when things lost, or people who have been “discarded,” nd a new life. Each is a small resurrection. This is the heart of the Christian message; there is new life even when things or people seem lost or dead. Today, our world-wide economy is calling us to resurrect, to give new life to things lost and make best use of our human resources; to save what would have been discarded in the past. What have we saved, whom have we saved today? The Lord knew about the ecology of life long before we saw its necessity or even thought about it!Youth and ChurchBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchShould parents insist that their children go to Sunday school, church services and youth meetings? Yes, and with no further discussion about the matter. Startled? Why? How do you answer Junior when he comes to the breakfast table Monday morning and announces rebelliously, “I’m not going to school today.” You know, Junior goes. How do you answer when Junior comes in very much besmudged and says, “I’m not going to take a bath.” You know, Junior bathes. How do you answer when Junior threatened with illness, says, “I’m not going to take that medicine.” You know, he takes it. That is, you, with more mature judgment in such matters can appreciate values Junior cannot yet appreciate in his immaturity. Why all this timidity then in the realm of his spiritual guidance and growth? Going to let him “wait and decide what church he’ll go to when he is old enough?” Quit your kidding. Has it ever occurred to you he would decide that when, b y default, he has lost twenty years of his life, it might not be worth choosing after all? You didn’t wait until he was “old enough” to decide whether or not he wanted to go to school and get and education, or until he could make up his mind as to whether he wanted to be a clean person or not, or whether or not he wanted to take medicine that would make him well. What shall we say when Junior announces he doesn’t like Sunday school, church, or youth meeting? That’s an easy one. Just be consistent. “Junior, in our home we all attend Sunday school, church and youth meeting; that includes you.” Your rmness and example here will show that you value his spiritual development as much as his educational and physical development. This coming Sunday at 5:30 p.m., we at First Christian Church are beginning Christian Youth Boot Camp. Young people will be taught how to use their Bibles in sword drills and Scripture memorization. The greatest lesson the world has ever heard, The Parables Of Jesus, will be studied and explained. There will also be team work, challenging recreation, and delicious refreshments. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 8, 2011 RELIGION COLUMNS Pastor John Hicks Rev.

Hendry, and other lake-area communities to stay together after redistricting. Ashley Tripp, of the Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance, proposed that the district by redrawn to include all the communities that surround Lake Okeechobee into one district. In her words, “It’s about the commonalties that these communities share that need to be considered,” she said. “Commonality” was the catch-phrase for the entire meeting as city of cials from Okeechobee, the mayor of LaBelle Paul Pauletti, Hendry County Commissioner Janet Taylor, Glades County Commissioner Donna Storter-Long, Clewiston Utilities Director Kevin McCarthy, and others agreed that the center area of Florida share the same values and beliefs. Those values wouldn’t be understood by the coastal and metropolitan areas, they said. Robert Rease, of the Glades Area Ministerial A ssociation, summed it up best that morning, “When everything is redrawn, we ask that this area has own voice and one vote,” he said. “The common interests of this region are best kept together.” Three speakers from the Charlotte County League of Women Voters brought up the protest that the timeline the state had laid out for the process of redistricting was too slow. According to the timeline, they said, candidates would have little to no time to le their declaration to run because the state would approve the districts sometime before June 8, the candidate deadline. They said that it was far too little time and unfair to any challenger who considers running against an incumbent. They did propose an accelerated timeline that would have the state voting and nalizing the redistricting by January of 2012. Sen. Gaetz addressed their concerns and recommended that they speak with one of his advisor regarding an updated timeline that would answer that concern, As the meeting ended, everyone had a chance to speak with the representatives one-on-one. Many took the opportunity to thank them for coming out while others asked more questions. Hendry County Commissioner Karson Turner commented at the end of the meeting that he was happy that many people were heard by the representatives. “It was very productive and I appreciate everyone that could come out to this meeting and have their opinions and concerns voiced to those who are willing to listen,” the commissioner said. Florida Senator Joe Negron, who chaired the remainder of the session after Sen. Gaetz had to leave, was very pleased that people made it to the meeting and strong voiced their concerns. “I took more than 50 pages worth of notes from this meeting,” he said. “I have heard a lot of concern regarding Hendry County could be split when the districts are redrawn and staying part of the Central Florida area.” He continued to say that he will take all these consideration with him into the committees where the districts will be redrawn and voted on. He hoped that the process will be done by January 2012 when the legislature returns to session. “I know that this area is the real Florida,” he said. “I will do all I can to make sure that this are a is represented as it deserves to be.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 8, 2011 MeetingContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / JUAN LOPEZFlorida Senator Joe Negron reassures those who attended the redistricting meeting that they’re concerns were heard and will be listened to.

The Lions on their own 43-yard line were once again stopped by the Terrier defense with a QB sack on 2nd down by Maurice James. The Terrier defense followed up with tackles by Arliss Ford, J odi Wooten, and a QB sack by Devontae Campbell, allowing the Terriers to take over on downs. The Terriers next offense series ended when a pass by QB Akkua Hallback was intercepted. The Lions would take over and eventually score their last TD and extra point of the night. The Lions increased their lead 31-21. The Terriers would end in a urry of touchdowns and defensive stops that seemed to completely wear down the Lions. A kickoff return by Markeis Hallback, a punt return for a touchdown by M. James an then another touchdown drive capped off by Hallback after Darius Cohen intercepted a Lion pass, put the game away for the Terriers. When speaking with Markeis Hallback and Darius Cohen after the game, both boys were happy for the win and glad to be 1-0 in the district. Both players acknowledged that the team did better but were still making too many mistakes. "I'm glad we didn't make as many mistakes as last week, but we still have a long way to go" said Hallback. Coach Belser said, "I'm very proud of the guys, they played physical for 48 minutes, that's the way we want it. "I'm thankful that we are so blessed to have good kids and the fact that our faith in God has given us the courage to ght in the face of adversity will make us hard to beat." The Terriers will be on the road Thursday for a Junior High game versus LaBelle at 4 p.m. and then will host Lake Placid at Joe Brown Stadium Friday night. Lake Placid is 1-0 and is a non-district contest. "It is another chance for us to get better against an opponent that is not in our district," said Belser TerriersContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / LORI WARDDarius Cohen puts the stop on a First Baptist Academy player during the Terriers’ win last Friday.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 17 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 8, 2011 Steps to take to stay ahead of sicknessBY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsHollywood lm makers' next pandemic is hitting the theaters on Sept. 9. The movie is called "Contagion." Unfortunately, none of us can schedule the next real-life global outbreak. The glitz and glamour of actors and celebrities w ill be pretending to experience fear however a real-life pandemic will involve regular hard-working people just like you and me. While you may not be spending your free time preparing for the next pandemic, scientists and public health experts will tell you that it is not a matter of "if" one will strike, but "when." The new movie Contagion tracks the growth of a deadly virus that quickly erupts into a worldw ide pandemic. The idea is frightening enough to make anyone germ-a-phobic, but it is important to remember that the same basic steps people take daily to protect themselves from colds and us could be life-saving during such an event. These include:Wash hands frequently and thoroughlyThe Hendry and Glades County Health Departments encourages everyone to wash their hands before and after handling food, after using the bathroom, after changing a diaper, after handling garbage, after coming in contact with pets, and also wash your hands before and after coming in contact with sick or injured people (including your own children). Proper hand washing includes using soap and water and scrubbing your hands for 10-20 seconds.Cover your mouth when you cough or sneezeAs children, many of us were taught to cover our mouth with our hand when we cough or sneeze. New guidance recommends coughing or sneezing into your elbow to minimize the passing germs through your hands.Stay home from school or work when you are sickWhen people go to work or school sick, they can make other people sick. With today's dif cult economy, many employees are hesitant to take time off for any reason, desperate to show their dedication to their job to avoid losing it. Employers need to prioritize productivity and remind their employees to stay home when they are sick to protect the rest of their workforce. Florida may face many threats; some may have the potential for large-scale health implications which can include disease outbreaks, natural disasters and even terrorist attacks. There will be another pandemic some day. We witnessed a small glimpse of this with H1N1 in 2009, but we don't know when the next one is coming, so we must stay prepared and do what we can to keep ourselves and our families healthy. Don't let Hollywood make you become paranoid! By remembering these simple hygiene steps every day, you can help decrease the chance that a pandemic will jump from the movie screen into our daily lives. And when you go to the movies to watch Contagion, don't forget to wash your hands before you dive into your bucket of popcorn! Contagion is directed by Steven Soderbergh and includes stars Kate Winslet, Matt Damon, Jude Law, Marion Cotillard, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lawrence Fishburne. Opening in theaters Sept. 9. September is National Preparedness Month, and now is the perfect time to create a personal and/or family preparedness plan! There are several websites that will help guide you with your plans. Visit www.doh.state. .us/demo/BPR/PDFs / FamilyPrepareGuide_Eng2010.pdf or www.ready. gov/ and get started today! Movie Reality-Check, Preventing a “Contagion” Pandemic The second in a ve-part seriesBY DOTTIE COOK Empowerment Alliance of SW FloridaEditor’s Note The Empowerment Alliance of SW Florida is a 501(c)(3) not for pro t corporation and primarily covers Eastern Collier, Hendry and Glades Counties with a main mission of building affordable housing for low income families. The organization also is a HUD-approved agency for counselling on credit rst time home buyers and foreclosure matters. Last week we talked about de ning our money goals and their costs so we can include them in our budget. Remember, the budget serves as a tool to help guide us in how we spend our money. This week we'll start building our budget and incorporating those goals. You can build your budget on a computer, or on just a regular sheet of paper, whatever you nd easier. The rst part of the budget is monthly income. For this part, gure out how much income you bring home each week or have deposited into your account after payroll taxes. This is your net income and is what you actually have to spend on your expenses after your payroll taxes are deducted. If you get paid the same amount each pay period, it's easy to calculate how much you make in a month. If your wages uctuate, however, due to hourly or seasonal work, it can be a little harder. In those cases, track your paychecks for one or two months if possible and take the average of those paychecks to gure out what you make on a monthly basis. Also check to see if you have any other regular monthly income you can include. This might be social security, rent, child support, or something else. The key is to make sure it is regular and that you receive it each month. If it isn't regular, it's better to leave it off your budget so you don't overspend in the months you don't receive it. Once you have all your income sources, add them up and this gives you your income for the month. Next look at your regular monthly expenses and break them out by category. Some of these categories include rent or house payment, car payment, gas or bus fares, utilities, etc. If you have something that is paid only once a year or a few times a year but not every month, to set aside money throughout the year for it, you'll want to include it in your monthly budget. For example if a car insurance premium is paid twice a year, calculate how much you pay on car insurance for the whole year, and divide it by 12 to get it to a monthly amount. That way you can set aside a little bit each month to help with the bill when it arrives. You'll also want to include money for your goals under your expenses. If your goal is to save $50 per month, put savings as an expense item in your budget. If you don't speci cally include your goals as expenses in your budget and set aside money for them, chances are that money will get spent on other things. Once you have both your income and your expenses written down, you have your budget. If your expenses are greater than your income, look at your expenses again and see what you might be able to reduce. You might also want to think about ways to increase your income such as working extra hours or a second job if those options are available to you. Now that your budget is complete, it's time to start tracking your expenses throughout the next month. This is the most critical part of the budgeting process because it helps us see where our money goes. Each night, write down how much you spent that day and on what, even if it was just a few dollars. Again, this can be done on a computer, or just on a piece of paper using different columns for different categories. At the end of the month, add up how much was spent on each category and you'll see exactly where your money goes throughout the month. Next week we'll talk about some of the surprises we nd when we track our expenses and tips for staying on budget. Building a Budget Color and lighting can improve your homeBY STATEPOINTDoes your home feel drab or dark? Are you tired of the same old rooms and color schemes? There are many easy, cost-effective ways to brighten your home's appearance, cheering up its occupants in the process. From fresh coats of paint to sunny lighting schemes to lively window treatments, small changes can have a big impact on your home. And some projects can be tackled in just one short weekend. Window Treatments By literally letting more light into your home, you can make your days more cheerful. Try replacing heavy drapes or dark colored shades with translucent curtains or blinds. This way, you let in natural light while keeping prying eyes at bay. Other ways to invite natural light into your home include adding internal windows within rooms to let light ow from one space to another, or installing skylights. Energy-Ef cient Accents Your lighting scheme can set different moods in different rooms. To make a room both cheerful and ef cient, use three different types of lighting: ambient -or background -lighting, task lighting and accent lighting. Stylish new options for background lighting abound, such as pendants, chandeliers, ceilingmounted lights and new kinds of xtures that can be hung in multiple ways. LED lighting is perfect to illuminate places for reading, food preparation, dressing or other tasks. With a very long lifespan, such lights may never need to be replaced and can save you money on electricity bills because they are brighter with lower wattage. The latest in accent lighting includes strings of remarkably thin LED light pods that can easily bend around corners and t into small spaces, such as those from manufacturers like Kichler Lighting. This type of sleek, modern lighting adds drama when entertaining, while also lowering electricity costs. "Accent lights like these use little energy so they can stay on all night, an added plus for homes with small children or when overnight guests visit," says Jeff Dross, Kichler Lighting's Corporate Director of Education and Industry Trends. "No two homes are alike and their lighting shouldn't be either." Warmth and Color Liven up rooms by selecting a bright color scheme. Paint sets the basic tone, so choose a light color, such as inviting yellows or cheery pastels. Remember, dark colors can absorb light and make rooms darker. You can paint an entire room a bright color or just one wall. And you can add warmth as well as color by layering on pillows and throws to accent favorite pieces of furniture.

Ihad seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina Democrat I didnt have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign, I sure as hell wasnt too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter, I felt very confortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than Id expected. He provided me with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

Kids have returned to school, football is back on TV and hunting season’s already been going on a month now in South Florida. Most of us have already nished our preseason scouting, and tree stands are hung along welltraveled deer trails hoping to be next to a mature oak tree that’ll soon begin dropping acorns. Finally, the time of year you’ve been waiting for is here! Bowhunting continues to be popular in state. Beginning this year, even more folks are bound to take to the woods earlier, because on private lands, crossbow season has been extended; it now opens the same day as archery in each of the four hunting zones. Just like last year on private lands, hunting season still comes in rst in Zone A, which is that part of the state south of State Road 70. Archery and crossbow seasons there started July 30. The fourth hunting zone, which was added last year and is made up in part by the Green Swamp Basin, is called Zone B and lies south of S.R. 50, west of U.S. 441 and the Kissimmee Waterway, north of S.R. 60 and east of the Gulf of Mexico. Archery and crossbow seasons in Zone B always begin on the third Saturday of October. This year, that falls on Oct. 15. The line that divides zones C and D begins at U.S. 27 at the (Gadsden County) Florida-Georgia state line and runs south on U.S. 27 until it meets S.R. 61 in Tallahassee. From there, it follows S.R. 61, running south until it hits U.S. 319. There, the line follows U.S. 319, continuing south to U.S. 98; it then runs east along U.S. 98 before turning south on Spring Creek Highway and continuing to the Gulf of Mexico. If you hunt west of that line, you’re in Zone D, w here archery and crossbow seasons begin on Oct. 22 this year. In Zone C, archery and crossbow seasons open on the third Saturday in September. This y ear, that date is Sept. 17. To hunt during archery season, you’ll need a Florida hunting license and an archery permit. During crossbow season, y ou’ll need a hunting license and crossbow permit. If you’re a Florida resident, an annual hunting license will cost $17. Nonresidents have the choice of paying $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. Archery and crossbow permits cost just $5 each, and all deer hunters must have the $5 deer permit. Anyone planning on hunting one of Florida’s many WMAs must purchase a management area permit for $26.50. And don’t forget to pick up the WMA brochure for the area you wish to hunt, because the hunting season dates have changed since last year on many of them. The seasons this year have been adjusted on many of the areas to more closely align with the new zonal season dates that were modi ed last season on private lands. You can pick up a copy of these WMA brochures at your local tax collector’s of ce or read them at MyFWC.com/Hunting. During archery season and that part of crossbow season that is concurrent with archery, you can take deer of either sex, regardless of antler size (except for spotted fawns). After archery ends, during the remaining portion of the crossbow season, only legal bucks (having at least one antler that is at least ve inches long) may be taken. The daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag limits for deer on WMAs can differ, so check the speci cs of the area before you hunt. You can hunt wild hogs on private lands yearround with no bag or size limits. On most WMAs, there’s also no bag or size limits, and hogs are legal to take during most hunting seasons except spring turkey. On a few WMAs, bag and size limits do apply, so be sure to check the brochure for the speci c area to be certain. It’s also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during archery and crossbow seasons, given you have a turkey permit ($10 for residents, $125 for nonresidents). You can take only one turkey per day, and there’s a two-bird fall-season limit. It’s against the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes County in the fall, and it’s illegal to shoot them while they’re on the roost, over bait, when you’re within 100 yards of a game-feeding station when bait is present or with the aid of recorded turkey calls. If you’re hunting during the archery season, you may hunt only with a bow and must have the $5 archery permit. During crossbow season, you may use either a crossbow or bow but must have the $5 crossbow permit. On WMAs, only hunters with a disabled crossbow permit are allowed to use crossbows during archery season. All bows must have a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds, and hand-held releases are permitted. For hunting deer, hogs and turkeys, broadheads must have at least two sharpened edges with a minimum width of 7/8 inch. Crossbow Season Expanded on Private Lands SUBMITTED PHOTOA hunting crossbow.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 8, 2011 BY ROBERT H. WELLS UFMosquitoes aren’t just a nuisance, they’re also an economic and health concern, say University of Florida researchers. July, August, and September are peak months for mosquito activity in Florida, and the state spends about $151 million each year trying to control the biting insects. Controlling mosquitoes is important for economic development and tourism, said Jonathan Day, a University of Florida medical entomology professor at UF’s Florida Medical Entomology Lab in Vero Beach. “Looking at Florida’s history, there are large tracts of land that simply would not have been developed had it not been for mosquito control,” Day said. And if there are mosquito-borne disease outbreaks one year, there can be severe nancial impact on the state’s tourism industry the next, Day said. “We actually saw that in 1991,” he said. “The y ear following the St. Louis encephalitis epidemic in 1990, we saw a real downswing in tourism.” The medical entomology lab, part of UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is tracking mosquito-borne diseases in the state including eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis, and dengue virus. The spring drought reduced mosquito-borne diseases so far this year, Day said, but residents and visitors should still be cautious. He noted that mosquito numbers are high this y ear because many mosquitoes have drought-resistant eggs that stayed dormant until the summer rainy season triggered them to hatch. Mosquito landing rates, which are the number of mosquitoes that land on a person in a given time, have ranged from 10 to 50 per minute this summer at the Vero Beach lab. And although mosquito-borne diseases often cause mild symptoms such as fever and muscle pain, they can be fatal for some. Roxanne Connelly, a medical entomologist at the Vero Beach lab, said people die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. “It seems that Eastern equine encephalitis is the deadliest,” Connelly said. “That is one that kind of affects all age ranges of people. Whether you’re young or old, if you get it, it seems to be one that is very dif cult to recover from.” Eastern equine encephalitis has been detected in three Florida horses this year – two in Holmes County and one in Marion County, and there are currently no human cases. Mosquitoes become infected with the disease by feeding on infected birds and then transmit the disease to humans and horses. Eleven human cases of West Nile virus have been con rmed this year in Duval County, with one suspected death. One sentinel chicken in Indian River County has tested positive for St. Louis encephalitis, but there have been no human cases so far. Lab of cials are closely watching the Key West area to see if dengue virus emerges there this year as it has the past two years. Two locall y acquired cases of dengue have been con rmed in the state in 2011 — one in Martin County and one in Miami-Dade County. The virus is transmitted from person to person via mosquito. To protect themselves, residents are encouraged to remove standing water from their property, avoid outside activity during early morning and late evening hours, wear protective clothing, and use insect repellent.
