The Dragons may have set the tone with a long TD run in the rst series, but the Terriers quickly proved they would not be left behind. The Terriers immediately tied the score (7-7), with a 42-yard TD run by M. Hallback, along with L. Rico's successful extra point attempt. The Terriers were able to make big plays for the second week in a row. One of the biggest plays of the night, came from Terrier QB A. Hallback, who quickly recovered from a bad snap to go on to run 92-yards for a Terrier touchdown. It was followed up by a successful extra point attempt by L. Rico, giving the Terriers a (14-7) lead in the rst half. The Dragons next and nal touchdown came in the remaining minutes of the rst half, but a tackle made by #14 A. Ford, stopped the Dragons two point conversion attempt. The Terriers had to settle for a one point lead (1413) heading into halftime after their eld goal attempt failed in the last seconds of the rst half. At the beginning of the third quarter, the Terriers, with a 60-yard run from M.Hallback, would score their nal touchdown of the Terriers Win Once AgainSee Football — Page 10 Public invited to learn about summer food programThere are 11,100 people in Hendry and Glades counties currently experiencing food insecurity. This means they don't have access to nutritious meals or don't know where their next meal will come from. These statistics are based on Feeding America's recent "Hunger in America" report. According to this same study, it will take $4,728,500 to help address food insecurity in these two counties. Where will this money come from? It comes from neighbors helping neighbors, from grants, and from government programs like the National School Lunch Program and the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly food stamps). Another lesser known program is the Summer Food Service Program, which helps feed children during the summer when they don't receive school meals. The Harry Chapin Food Bank and the Ortona Community Center are hosting an informational meeting on Thursday, September 15, at 10:00 a.m. at the Ortona Community Center, 1115 Coffee Mill Hammock Road (behind the re station on 78A Ortona Locks Road.) The public is invited to attend to hear about the program from a Department of Education representative. Those attending will learn how they can get involved to reach the $4,728,500 mark. This will involve working across various sectors. In this economic climate, funds are being cut from programs and it will be necessary to explore 11,100 in Two Counties are Food InsecureSee Food — Page 12 PHOTO / LORIE WARDMoore Haven Terriers improve their season record to 2 0 after their strong win over Lake Placid.

LAKEPORT NEWS Establishing public transportation in small town AmericaWhen the gasoline prices rose, people were confronting problems to ll their car to go to work. As an alternative, some people decided to quit their jobs. However, that decision created more problems than solutions. It was alarming when the news spread all over the media of people mentioning all the problems they were facing to ll their cars’ gas tank just to be able to work. An example of how to solve this problem is that small towns in America develop a public transportation system to help people to keep their jobs without being overwhelms by the cost of gasoline. Some individuals found that it was worthless to keep his or her job because after paying for gas, they did not have any income left for other expenses. As with any decision in a small town it would have to be presented to a city council; certainly there is a possibility that they would not accept this measure because of the cost involved. The possibility of implementing should be openly discussed with pros and cons, detailing any decision. The rst aspect to consider is a possibility to allow a private investor to provide the services. The next step should be to answer some questions such as: 1. Is there any help that a person can receive from the government to begin a business? 2. Can some tax exemption be allowed? 3. Can the service provided by dividing the route to be covered between groups of persons? 4. What other incentives can be provided? If the government does not have to cover any cost because the service will be provided by a private investor, the next step would be to develop the requirements for the provider or providers. For example, the type of bus, big or small, a van or small car, the license required insurances or any other condition that guarantees the safety of the passengers must be considered. A person who sees that he or she can get to his or her job by public transportation with a moderate cost, saving in gasoline, insurance and a maintenance fee will want to use it. Instead of all the cost related to having a car in good condition to be able to drive to work every day; such person would be well served by public transportation. Certainly, the people will be more than happy to keep their jobs and use his or her car as little as possible. Consequently, people will have alternatives to save money in gas and keep their job. Also, this is a new opportunity for an innovative business in small towns of America that can be successful and very pro table to the owner. Even the local government can receive bene ts from any governmental assistance. In conclusion, everyone will win from the decision of establishing public transportation in small towns of America.

Tally sheets with mailing and e-mail instructions are available on the HendryGlades Audubon website at www. hendrygladesaudubon.org. Reports and photographs of returning wintering birds and common birds will help create a snapshot of bird species in our area. One of the common residents birds found in the open pastures, prairies and towns with suitable habitat in inland Florida is the Eastern Meadowlark. The adult Eastern Meadowlark is a mediumsized stocky songbird with a short tail. It has a yellow throat, chest and yellow belly with a black “V” across its chest. The back is brown and streaked with white outer tail feathers. The juvenile Eastern Meadowlark is similar to the adult but is paler overall with dusty ecks on its chest instead of the black “V.” It is best known for its clear whistling song, but other calls include a buzz or rattling chatter. These birds are often seen feeding on the ground or in low vegetation where they search for insects which compose 75 percent of their diet. The rest of their diet consists of grains and weed seeds. During the summer Eastern Meadowlarks build nests on the ground which is hidden in thick grass. The nest has an “arched roof and consists of very ne grasses.” Some females raise two broods of 3-5 eggs in a season. Eggs are incubated for 13-15 days and the young edge at 11-12 days of age. One of the most reliable places to see, hear and photograph Eastern Meadowlarks is Dinner Island Wildlife Management Area on 833 in Hendry County. Please submit your photographs of the common inland Florida songbirds, owls, vultures, turkeys and ducks for future articles 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.

BY STATEPOINTThere are no shortages of diets and weightloss programs, offering con icting tips and advice. The sheer amount of information can lead many of us to stick our heads in the sand and hope our genes will withstand decades of poor eating and little or no exercise. "Filtering the plethora of diet information from television, books and the Internet can be overwhelming," says K.C. Craichy, a leading health researcher, speaker, and consultant on optimized natural health, nutrition, and tness. "And the many dieting fads can prevent people from establishing lifelong healthy habits." Here's what you need to know about some of the most popular weight-loss programs and plans available today, according to Craichy, who has authored "The Super Health Diet," a new book to help people successfully navigate this maze of diets and programs. Diet Clubs We've all seen the TV commercials for weightloss centers touting celebrity success stories. For the most part, these clubs provide a strong support network for people who have tried to lose weight on their own and failed. Many of these programs rely on a point system or pre-packaged food they sell to you. But these methods, while successful, can be hard to maintain once you are no longer in the program because they do not promote permanent lifestyle changes or teach you to prepare healthy meals on your own. Fad Diets From Atkins to The Zone to the new Macrobiotic and Vegan craze, America has rarely been without a diet fad. Many of these programs have helped people lose weight, even though they appear to give contradictory advice -one may advocate a low carbohydrate, high protein diet, while the other an average carb, low protein diet. The main reason for their success is that most Americans have unhealthy diets and overestimate portion allowances, so any restrictive diet is bound to help them lose weight. But these diets may not prepare you for optimum health and can be inconvenient to follow, especially those requiring unusual foods. The Mediterranean Diet Several decades ago, medical researchers began to take notice that people living in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy and Greece, had lower rates of cardiovascular disease. They found that their diets contained low amounts of red meat, moderate levels of sh and poultry (once or twice a week), and high levels of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olive oil and legumes. Craichy says the key factors to this type of diet are the small portions, the use of omega-3 and other healthy fats like olive oil, resveratrol from grapes or red wine, and nutrient dense foods. His own suggested diet, based on years of research, emphasizes small, nutrient-dense portions, along with supplementing your diet with broad-spectrum antioxidants, minimizing sugar, and consuming high quality fats and fatty acids. To learn more about weight-loss techniques that can work for you, check out "The Super Health Diet" or visit www.LivingFuel.com. Then get started on building habits toward optimum health and long life. Hendry Regional Medical CenterFall is full of amazing things: cooler weather, beautiful and colorful leaves, football season, and allergies. Two out of every ten Americans suffer from allergies. Although speci c allergies cannot be inherited, people can inherit the tendency to be allergic. If one parent suffers from allergies, their child develops a 50 percent chance of inheriting allergies. If both parents have allergies, those odds increase to 75 percent. Christine Delucas, RN, vice president for clinical operations for Quorum Health Resources (QHR), documented the effect of allergies: "Allergies account for more than 17 million physician of ce visits, 30,000 emergency room visits, and several hundred deaths each year. Individuals with allergies are also at heightened risk for other diseases, including asthma." Quest Diagnostics’ 2011 report “Allergies Across America” found that: Allergen sensitization is increasing (6 percent over the 4 year study period); Sensitization to 2 common environmental allergens is increasing ragweed (+15 percent) and mold (+12 percent); and Allergens have a disproportionate negative effect on children (2:1 vs. adults). Dr. Jeffrey Matfus, Internal Medicine physician at the Hendry Family Care Center, de nes allergies as "an abnormal response of the immune system, which reacts to a usually harmless substance such as pollen, mold, animal dander or food." A person can be exposed to these allergens by inhaling them, swallowing them, or getting them on or under their skin. When suffering from a common allergic reaction, a person can have a number of symptoms including: Itchy eyes Sneezing Runny nose Rashes Feeling tired Hives Your symptoms can vary depending on what you're having an allergic reaction to. Food allergies have more internal reactions such as stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea. Symptom severity can range from very mild, almost even unnoticeable, to severe. Moderate allergic reactions can make you feel as though you have a cold or the u, while more severe reactions can be debilitating. While most symptoms do not last long after the exposure to the allergen stops, the most severe allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, can be life threatening. Anaphylaxis reactions cause whole-body symptoms that include: Hives and itching all over Wheezing or shortness of breath Tightness in the throat Tingling in the hands, feet, lips, or scalp "Anaphylactic symptoms progress quickly," says Dr. Matfus. "If you or a friend is experiencing an anaphylactic allergic reaction, seek medical attention immediately." Finding the cause of allergies can be as easy as realizing you sneeze every time you get close to a ower. However, some allergens are more dif cult to detect. An allergist can perform various tests to help you nd your trigger. These tests include skin testing, blood tests, or just the process of eliminating and re-introducing certain allergens in order to nd those triggers. Skin testing is the most common and the most helpful method of detection. Skin testing involves exposing skin to certain allergens over an extended period of time to observe reactions. Once allergens are detected, prevention can involve taking certain prescription and over-thecounter medicines, although the best prevention is avoiding your triggers altogether if possible. If you're experiencing allergy symptoms, contact Dr. Matfus for an appointment at 863-9833434. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 Choosing A Weight-Loss Program That Works For You Allergy Season is Here SUBMITTED PHOTOSneezing into your arm prevents spreading germs.

A public hearing to make a FINAL DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on: September 20TH, 2011 at 7:00 P .M. at City of Moore Haven, City Hall 299 Riverside Drive Moore Haven Florida 33471 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 BY MARK KINGSeptember is here and as the water starts to cool a little the bass shing has started to get pretty good in some areas. The water is still a little low at 10.15 feet above sea level. It is coming up every day and that is very encouraging since all the major storms seem to be going to the northeastern states. It has been a pretty hot summer here in South Florida but the shing both here on Lake Okeechobee and in the Keys has been good. Catching bass this summer has been a little challenging with the water level being low but w hen you do nd the sh there seems to be a lot of them and some pretty good sized ones in the mix. One of my clients last week had a bass over seven pounds and I caught one right at eight and a half pounds the same day. So there are some really nice bass to be caught out on Okeechobee right now. The bite on arti cial lures has been better than using the wild shiners but that can change almost anytime as we head into fall here on the lake. Topwater lures like a RipRoller made by HighRoller in retiger color has been working great as w ell as a Zara Super Spook, and don't be afraid to throw topwater lures all day long. This past couple weeks the best bite didn't happen till after ten o'clock in the morning and most of my topwater bites were in the afternoon. Some of the other lures that have been working are ten inch worms and soft plastic uke baits in either junebug or watermelon-red color. I have been shing my soft plastics on a 1/16 or 1/8 ounce weight and shing them really slow, the lighter weight doesn't allow the sinker and worm to get caught up in the shrimp grass on the bottom of the areas I'm shing. I have been shing areas out on the lake from Uncle Joe's cut to Pelican Bay with pretty good success, but when the bite is really tough out on the main lake or the wind is really blowing there are still bass to be caught in the rim canal and dynamite holes. When shing the dynamite holes and rim canal try throwing a crankbait or a shakey head worm to catch these bass in deeper water. There are still a few bluegills hanging around out on the main lake and these areas are great places to catch bigger bass that are hanging around feeing on them. The winter should be a great season for us again this year here on Lake Okeechobee and if shing trip to catch some big bass sound good than now is the time to start planning a trip to the Big "O". After catching all the big bass that we did last year the bass should only be bigger this year. I am also starting to book for tarpon season next May and June and it won't take long to ll up these two months. If catching a monster tarpon is something you have always wanted to do please give me a call and we can set you up a trip to the beautiful Florida Keys and get you hooked up on a sh of a lifetime. Until next week good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water real soon.Capt.

National Do Nothing DayBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThis un-event, rst observed in 1973, was created to provide Americans with one national day w hen they could just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything. My question is, are we actually suppose to celebrate, or by celebrating would we be doing something and defeating the whole purpose of a holiday for doing nothing? Whatever, we'll have to wait for January 16 to do it (or not do it!) If you like food and holidays (who doesn't?), y ou're in luck. There's a national day set for just about every favorite food there is. You may have missed National Ice Cream Day (July 17), when w e had the chance to eat all the ice cream we w anted without apologies, but National Apple Dumpling Day (Sept. 17) and National Cheeseburger Day and National Rice Krispies Treats Day (Sept. 18) are coming. (And National Homemade Cookie Day is October 1!) But life is more about food. National Collect Rocks Day (Sept. 16) is upon us. Collect them from the beach, the woods, your neighbors' yard. (they don't need them anyway.) Then get ready because next is Figure Out What To Do With A Big Heap Of Rocks Day. On a more serious note, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed this year on Sept. 16. Many Americans use the time to remember those w ho were prisoners of war (POW) and those w ho are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. Sunday, Sept. 18 is National Back to Church Day. Thousands of churches will open their doors and welcome everyone who would like to rediscover church. This is not just to ll seats, but to share faith and fellowship and an encounter with the living Lord. Most are at least somewhat likely to attend church if invited, and most who drop out of church haven't lost their faith in God, they simply fell out of the habit of churchgoing. This day is a special challenge to church members to come and invite others to share in a worship experience. Sept. 28 is National Ask A Stupid Question Day. If not for a chance to get all of our stupid questions out of the way, no one would have ever asked, "Do you think we can have a National A nswer Your Cat's Questions Day?" (January 22) A nd see how well that turned out for all of us? So go ahead, let loose with all of those questions y ou've been too embarrassed to ask. And don't miss National Bathtub Day on October 7. Rub-a-dub-dub! Hop in the tub!The Reason That Sti es SolutionsBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of my teachers told me about rebuilding J apan after the Second World War. The Japanese railroads wanted to modernize, they bought a used American locomotive. It was carefully disassembled and duplicated. At one point the locomotive had been repaired and there was a patch on the boiler. Each new locomotive that came out of the Japanese factory had a patch on the boiler. Nobody stopped to ask w hy it was there, what purpose it served. As I've listened to church controversies, someone will propose another way of doing something that hasn't been tried. The opposition will counter "We've never done it that way before." That answer is offered up as a reason to veto a new idea without examining the pro's or con's of the suggestion. There was a church started by a larger congregation; the parent group becoming upset when the new group didn't want a rectangular building with columns at the front and a steeple over the entry. The edgling group built a church-in-theround, the altar being a bit back from the center with pews in semi-circles. In this way, more people could be closer to the altar than was possible with the more traditional design. The "parent" congregation had to get over what their "offsprings" had done. The Lord Himself faced the problem. He went to His hometown and began teaching there (Matthew 13:53ff). The people were "amazed" and asked "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" and then they asked "Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother's name Mary and aren't His brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?" and then "they took offense at him!" and" He did not do many miracles there "(vss 55-58). Of course not! Jesus didn't do things as they were done before. He had transcended the heritage and traditions that they felt should have been handed to Him. His new ideas? They certainly didn't come from his upbringing, his family or the past. What Jesus taught and did was never done before! Their quick dismissal led to the loss of something sacred. We make progress when we look at the larger picture; the principles behind the locomotive and what each part contributed, whether or not we have parental rights to control our offspring's every decision, if something is "bad" just because it hasn't been tried before or is there merit in what is being proposed. We are living in a complex world today with much fear and disappointment. There is a lot of hurt and many people feel they have been betrayed in where they have invested their lives, what they believed. I'd like to believe that proposed solutions are considered on their merits, rejected because they have failed in the past, or shown to be poorly thought out. We may have gotten into problems just because we did do it that way before. The way out may be to look at the merits of suggested answers and not fall back into old ways of making decisions.Has the Church Lost it's Young People?BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchWe often hear people say the church is losing its young people. Exactly what do they mean by this? It seems to me that this is not usually given as a statement of fact, but rather intended to be an indictment of the church for failure of some sort. The truth of the matter is that the church has no young people to lose. God has entrusted children to their parents, not the church. Ephesians 6:4 says "And ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." The church has the same responsibility to young people that it has to anyone else, preach the Word! It is not the church that must decide at what hour your teen must be in. It is not the preacher that tells your children what TV programs they can or cannot watch. The church does not choose the friends your children can have in your home, nor the ones the y run with at school. Your Sunday School Teachers are not responsible for how your son or daughter prepares for their class. Who should do these things? Parents! Who is kidding whom? If your child is lost, do not blame the church! The church is here to teach them but it must have the cooperation of the parents. Now if you want to bring down your young person. Do this! 1. Provide him with plenty of free spending money. 2. Permit him to select his own companions without restraint or direction. 3. Give him a door key and allow him to return home at any hour of the night without having to give an account. 4. Make no inquiry as to where or how he spends his leisure hours. 5. Make him understand that manners make a good substitute for morals. 6. Let him know that anything goes as long as it does not hurt someone else. 7. Let him understand that he will be paid for any act of helpfulness at home. 8. Let him spend his church time on the street or anywhere else instead of being in church. 9. Be careful never to let your young people see you pray or set an example that might be a positive in uence.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 BY AUSTIN MOORHOUSE River Garden, Moore HavenApplause for the Moore Haven City Council for authorizing the operation of golf carts within speci c residential communities and on roadways meeting threshold safety requirements under state and municipal law. Enacted on Sept. 6, 2011, the ordinance is effective immediately. This ordinance provides procedures and guidelines for the safe operation of these vehicles on our roadways. Golf carts may provide clean, safe and economic transportation for all those short trips within our community. Copies of this ordinance may be obtained from the Moore Haven City Hall or the Glades County Sheriff's Department. Even if one does not have a golf cart, it behooves us to read and understand this new regulation. As with automobiles and all other motor vehicles, there is always the possibility of an accident through no fault of the golf cart operator. A friend, a guest or even a family member might fall from the golf cart and become injured under some unusual and unexpected circumstance while the vehicle is in motion. A moment of inattention by another driver or someone backing up without looking could very well create a problem. Temporary loss of golf cart control could result in property damage. I've had my golf cart jump unexpectedly when I went to accelerate. Fortunately, I have not had a problem, but it is possible. Consequently, my wife and I have done some research with regard to golf cart insurance. We found that most motor vehicle insurance companies will insure our golf cart for liability, comprehensive and collision for less than $100 per year provided that the cart is being operated only in authorized communities and on authorized roadways. Now that we have an ordinance in place, most of the policies that we are aware of cost between $60 and $80 per year depending on the amount of coverage requested. If one does not have automobile insurance or does not own an automobile, insurance may still be available from one of the many major insurance companies. For more information, just type in the words "Golf Cart Insurance" in your search engine on the Internet. I think you will nd that most insurance companies will require that an ordinance be in place that authorizes golf carts in the community. My insurance company has quoted me $70 per year. I feel that for that price, I would be foolish and remiss if some unfortunate mishap should take place and I had no applied for this protection. I have no interest in insurance companies. My only concern is for the safety and protection of my family, my friends and the members of our community. New Ordinance Authorizes the Operation of Golf Carts It’s that time againYou can tell fall has arrived in South Florida! No, the leaves are not turningclubs and organizations that suspended meeting for the summer have started meeting again. Glades County Women's Club had their rst meeting of the new year, and with a new slate of of cers. GCWC is a service organization, with the commitment to serve and improve the community, as well as enjoying fun and fellowship while volunteering. President Kandi Snow announced that her main projects for the upcoming year will be increased membership, initiation of new members in January, and bringing the Club up into the world of greater technology. A revision of the required/needed committees was discussed. These positions will be lled at the October meeting. Kandi asked members to volunteer to chair the committee in which the member has the greatest interest, rather than her having to appoint chairmen. Members are to bring non-perishable food items to each meeting as an ongoing project. There is a great need for dietary assistance in the surrounding community. GCWC annually presents baskets to deserving families at Thanksgiving and Christmas, but with each member adding to the food pantry, many more families can be helped. In appreciation for the Historical Society's allowing the club to meet at the Westergaard House, a motion was carried to contact their president to determine what the Society's greatest need is, and try to ll it. A lengthy discussion in reference to the requirement to apply for a Women's Club scholarship took place. The Club awarded four scholarships last year to deserving Moore Haven High School Seniors. The committee noted that there is a need to revise the application to provide more information about the applicants. Chris Holliday and Donna Storter-Long will present a revised application to be considered at the October meeting. Kandi also mentioned that there are young women in Glades County who graduated several years ago, who would like to further their education, and with assistance might be able to do so. This also will be discussed at the next club meeting. It was noted that long-time member, Bette Davis, is recuperating from surgery at The Palms in Sebring, and Margaret Brown, is recuperating from knee replacement at home. Both of these very active members would appreciate a visit or a card. Contact Bobbi Brown for addresses at 946-3356. Kandi Snow served a light meal of stromboli, drinks and chips. Donna Storter-Long volunteered to serve refreshments at the Oct. 13 meeting. Members are reminded to bring canned goods for the food pantry. Glades County Women’s Club

game. The successful extra point attempt by L. Rico, would put the last point on the score board for the night (21-13). The scoring wrapped up early in the third quarter, but both teams continued to battle it out until the end of the game. The Terrier defense stopped the Dragons late in the third quarter, w hen they were only a few yards away from the end zone. The Dragons on 1st/10, on their own 35-yard line, were stopped by a tackle from #95 J. W. On 2nd/5, #52 and C. Ford stopped the Dragons, but a ag on the play would be called against the Terriers for unsportsmanlike conduct. On the next two plays, the Dragons were stopped by the Terrier defense, with tackles made by #52. When the Dragons were less than 2 yards from the end zone, they were stopped by a wall of Terrier defensive linemen, and #99 helped prevent a Dragon TD. In the fourth quarter, with 7 minutes remaining in the game, the Terrier defense successfully stopped another Dragon offensive drive, that had brought them within 2-yards of the end zone. The nal offensive series for the Dragons came w ith less than 5 minutes left, when they took over on their own 15-yard line. In their rst two drives, they were stopped by tackles from #52 and #34, but still managed to get a rst down. On the next two drives, they were stopped by tackles from #52 and #95. On a 3rd/3 QB pass, the Dragons w ould once again get a rst down. The rst drive w as stopped with a tackle from #85 N. Lee, and the Dragons, would only gain a few yards in their next drive. In this series, the Dragons had steadily kept moving the ball down eld, but failed to make anything happen, after they recovered a fumble on 3rd down. The Dragons on the 50 y ard line, with less than 2 minutes remaining in the game, decided to go for it on 4th down. They w ere stopped by a tackle from #4 C.Ford. The Terriers would take over on the 50-yard line as the clock ran down (21-13). Once again, the Terriers learned just how costly penalties can be, when a long touch down run w as called back due to holding. The Terriers were riddled with errors and penalties last season and they are still working on improving in this area. The number of penalties may be decreasing but, as they learned Friday night, it only takes one mistake to have a touchdown called back. In a different situation, this penalty could have cost them the game. On the other hand, a bad snap last season would probably have thrown the Terriers. Now that A. Hallback is a more seasoned QB, he was able to keep his composure and turn it into one of the Terriers biggest plays of the night. The Terriers worked hard in the off-season in the hopes that they will be better prepared when the regular season rolled around. I raised this topic, in a post game interview with two Terrier players, after their game against First Baptist Academy. The Terrier players I spoke with, M. Hallback and D. Cohen, both had made big plays that night. In discussing the amount of time they have to put in to play football for the Terriers, M. Hallback stated, "Yeah, its hard sometimes but its worth it," he said. "We see a difference, we're better and much stronger and Camp Belser brings us together as a team." For D. Cohen, this is his rst season with the Terriers and agreed with his teammate. "Being in that weight room helped me get stronger and the hard work pays off." When asked about team goals this year M. Hallback quickly replied, "We want to win a district championship." The Terriers are off to a good start this season and next week they have a chance to get one step closer to reaching their team goal, if they can pull off their second district win, in their matchup with Out-Of-Door Academy in Sarasota. The Terriers hope that their fans will safely take to the road and be there to cheer as they take the eld in an important district game. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 FootballContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / LORIE WARDTerrier takedown during their win against the Dragons.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 Mary Beth Carroll has been named chair of the United Way of Hendry and Glades 20112012 Campaign. The goal for the campaign is $205,500. Carroll is co-owner of Hilliard Brothers of Florida, a family-owned and operated agribusiness. She is part of the 3rd generation of family members to manage the company’s diverse agriculture, real estate and development operations. Before returning to Hilliard Brothers in 2001, she brie y worked for SunTrust Banks’ Family Trust division in Atlanta, GA and Century 21 Properties Plus in Charleston, SC. Carroll holds a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree from Auburn University. “I am honored to be the Hendry-Glades United Way Campaign Chair. Considering the huge need in our community, it’s a big job, said Carroll. I am asking for your help because it is extremely important for our community that we reach 100% of our goal. “It is a higher goal than for last year’s campaign, but the needs in Hendry and Glades County are great, and we are optimistic about meeting the goal. Every gift is important no matter what size, because added together they can make a real impact,” Carroll added. Cliff Smith, President of the United Way commented, “We are very pleased that Mary Beth is the 2011-2012 Campaign Chair for Hendry and Glades Counties. Her enthusiasm and commitment to the community make her a role model for all of us. Please join her in the campaign and make a real difference for this community. United Way Partner Agencies are here to help.” Members of the Hendry-Glades United Way Campaign Cabinet include Tommy Perry of Johnson-Prewitt and Associates, Scott Bass of the Glades County School District, Kate English of Pavese Law Firm, Jennifer Davis of Hendry County government, Andy Tilton of Johnson Engineering, Traci Owens of Ace Home Care and Dora Carnes of the Glades Resort. A local network of thirty agencies and initiatives will receive funds from the 2011-2012 United Way of Hendry & Glades fundraising campaign. These agencies include: Goodwill, The Salvation Army, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Child Care of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families, United Way 2-1-1, and many others. This network serves a diverse range of needs: nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, meeting critical needs such as helping the elderly and disabled live independently, and empowering communities by bringing health and human services to neighborhoods. The network of United Way agencies helped over 21,000 people in Hendry and Glades Counties last year. In addition to housing the United Way 211 helpline program, many agency programs and services can be found at the LaBelle United Way House on Fort Thompson. A new United Way House has also opened in Clewiston on Sugarland Highway to bring additional services to the area. A third United Way House is being planned for Moore Haven. All money raised through the United Way of Hendry and Glades Counties campaign remains in the Hendry and Glades area, aiding members of the community who really need the help. None of the money is used for overhead costs, and 100% of the donations are used to support programs in the community. In addition to raising funds for human service organizations in our community, the United Way promotes partnerships and collaborations among agencies, helping them to work together focusing on issues and solutions that continue to improve lives.

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.

Typically, the best treatment for otherwise healthy adults with acute bronchitis, colds and most types of sore throats is to simply help alleviate symptoms, according to new principles. All too often antibiotics are prescribed for adults with upper respiratory infections caused by viruses, which do not respond to antibiotics meant to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics are appropriate to ght bacterial infections, however, taking antibiotics for viral infections, such as a cold, most sore throats, acute bronchitis and many sinus or ear infections will not: Will not cure the infection Will not keep other people from getting sick Will not help you or your child feel better The excessive use of antibiotics among outpatients has contributed to the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in many communities. Increasing antibiotic resistance among common pathogens is leaving fewer effective drugs available to treat infectious diseases. When resistance develops in rst-line drugs, the remaining alternative drugs may be less effective, more expensive and more dif cult to administer. Dangers of Antibiotic Resistance Colds and many other upper respiratory infections, as well as some ear infections, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can't treat (like colds or other viral infections) they can stop working effectively against bacteria w hen you or your child really needs them. Antibiotic resistance is when antibiotics can no longer cure bacterial infections. Widespread overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics is fueling an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria. So there may come a time when you or your child really needs an antibiotic for a bacterial infection, and it may not work. Did you know? Antibiotic resistance is one of the world's most pressing public health threats. Antibiotics are the most important tool we have to combat life-threatening bacterial diseases. Increasing antibiotic resistance is compromising the effectiveness of antibiotics. Patients, healthcare providers, health departments, hospital administrators and policy makers must work together to employ effective strategies for improving appropriate antibiotic use which will ultimately saving lives. What can you do to help? Do not demand antibiotics when a doctor says they are not needed. Do not take an antibiotic for a viral infection like a cold or most sore throats. Do not take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. The antibiotic may not be appropriate for your or your child's illness. Taking the wrong medicine may delay correct treatment and allow bacteria to multiply. If your healthcare provider prescribes an antibiotic for you or your child: Do not skip doses. Do not save any of the antibiotics for the next time you or your child gets sick. Remember, just because your healthcare provider doesn't give you an antibiotic doesn't mean you aren't sick. Talk with them about the best treatment for your or your child's illness. When you or your child has an upper respiratory infection, here are some things that your healthcare provider may suggest: Over-the-counter treatment options that may help you or your child feel better Increase uid intake, (drink lots of water) Get plenty of rest Use a cool-mist vaporizer or saline nasal spray to relieve congestion Soothe a throat with ice chips, sore throat spray, or lozenges (do not give lozenges to young children).

All local businesses are affected by the lack of tourism in the area due to low water, from motels and gas stations, to restaurants and shing guides. All are welcome and encouraged to come to make a change in how this great lake is managed. Please come with your concerns and ideas to help with our livelihood." (Lake Okeechobee Outdoors, Facebook page) The rst meeting was held Aug. 22 in Lakeport, and 75 people attended. "The rst meeting was to share ideas, and to organize a group. This meeting will be more about doing, instead of just talking," as stated by Bryan Honnerlaw. At the last meeting, the group had farmers, hunters, airboaters, shing guides, business owners, concerned waterfront property owners, birdwatchers, a county commissioner, and a town mayor. Even two representatives from Applied Aquatics showed up, who instructed the group that the weeds they spray only turn brown, but do not die from the chemicals they spray. They also noted that they had been hunting and pecking for weeds to spray," and then all of a sudden, a lot of hyacinth was ushed into the lake by farmers, which gave them something to spray (Gary Teliveros Outdoor Writer). Brett Whidden, the Mayor of Moore Haven, stated that the Harney Pond Dredging project's nal permits were issued and that work could start as early as two weeks from the meeting. (Work has still not started as of September 12th) Overall, I think the meeting was a huge success. This was the rst time people have united from around the lake (from North to South) and been in complete agreement with each other on issues. The main issue the group wants to accomplish at this point is stabilizing the lake between 12.5 and 16 feet. Spraying, and other issues were also discussed.

"Trade issues have an enormous impact on the sugar industry and it is vital that our industry have a strong voice in Washington, D.C. Judy Sanchez brings that voice and nearly 20 years of experience and expertise to the table," said Robert Coker, senior vice president, public affairs. "With the 2012 Farm Bill discussions underway, Ms. Sanchez' appointment could not have come at a more opportune time," Coker said. "With the national economy in shambles, it is more important than ever that we not allow subsidized foreign sugar to replace ef cient American sugar farmers and export more American jobs overseas." "With U.S. agricultural exports reaching record highs as our farmers and ranchers bring the American brand to more of the world consumers, agricultural trade is demonstrating once again its vital role in the health of our nation's economy," said Vilsak. "By serving on these committees, they have the opportunity to provide their expertise and knowledge to deliberations that in uence U.S. trade policy, ultimately helping to grow, innovate and out-compete the rest of the world." Congress established the advisory committee system in 1974 to ensure a private-sector voice in establishing U.S. agricultural trade policy objectives to re ect U.S. commercial and economic interests. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Of ce of the U.S. Trade Representative jointl y manage the committees. Advisory committee members provide advice and information to the Secretary of Agriculture and the U.S. Trade Representative on negotiating objectives, positions and other matters related to the development, implementation and administration of U.S. agricultural trade policy. The ATACs offer technical advice and information on speci c commodities. This appointment requires secret security clearance. These members will serve until June 9, 2015. "This is both a great honor and opportunit y for Ms. Sanchez and a great bene t for the sugar and sweetener industry," Coker said. Sanchez is the senior director of corporate communications and public affairs. U.S. Sugar Executive Appointed to Agricultural Trade Advisory Committee Judy Sanchez
