They started the season with two wins, even though they were plagued by penalties. In their rst two games, the Terriers offset their numerous errors/penalties with their ability to come back and make enough key big plays each game for a win. Unfortunately, this week, against a much different opponent, the team learned there is no room for mistakes and damaging penalties if they want to compete in their district, especially as the season advances. On Friday night, they faced district opponent Out-Of-Door Academy (The Thunder), in their most challenging game of the season. In last season's match up between these two opponents, the Thunder dominated the Terriers for an important district win. This season, the storm came in the form of an unstoppable rst year sophomore starter for the Thunder offensive, by the name of D. Patterson. It was a big night for the Thunder sophomore, who rushed for 173 yards, had a total of 16 carries and scored three touchdown, one for 60 yards. Thunder Storms 33-6 Over Terriers See Terriers — Page 10 New Moore Haven re station could be put on holdBY CHARLES M. MURPHY Glades County DemocratGlades County could change the way they handle management of community association buildings across the county, make rules and regulations standard and perhaps lower the legal liability the county faces. County Attorney Richard Pringle suggested the county look at a couple of ideas on how best to manage these facilities in the future. He said right now the associations are using these county properties any way they want to without rules or regulation. The development of a community center for Washington Park on the outskirts of Moore Haven continues. There is approximately $145,000 in an account to build a community center. This situation brought forward the management issues. County Attorney Richard Pringle objected to a proposed management agreement for this facility. He said, under terms of this agreement, the County would have all the liability on the property while another group, the Washington Park Community Improvement Association, would control the use of the property. "This is a county asset. There is not an entitlement for any community group for uncontrolled use of the property," he added. He said tax dollars were used to make all the improvements on the property and the county has the responsibility to manage, protect, and maintain the property. He said a management agreement should be developed for all of the community centers in the county. There could be a management agreement for the Community Association to Commissioners Discuss Future of Washington Park CenterSee Park — Page 19 PHOTO / LORIE WARDAn of cer from Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce stands as he and other agencies took part in the 9/11 Memorial Service during the Terrier halftime on Sept. 9.

CERT TrainingCERT training promotes a partnering effort between emergency services and the people that they serve. The goal is for emergency personnel to train members of neighborhoods, community organizations, or workplaces in basic response skills. CERT members are then integrated into the emergency response capability for their area. If a disastrous event overwhelms or delays the community’s professional response, CERT members can assist others by applying the basic response and organizational skills that they learned during training. These skills can help save and sustain lives following a disaster until help arrives. CERT skills also apply to daily emergencies. Previous emergency knowledge not required for participation. CERT training will be held on Sept. 22 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will also be a Saturday Drill on Sept. 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. All training events will be held at the Lakeport Community Center (10245 Red Barn Road, Lakeport).

SCHOOL BRIEFS If you didn’t mark your calendar for noon on the third Thursday, you missed a wonderful time of fun, food and fellowship, as Keenagers resumed meeting. Sharon McCormick’s “pumpkin roll” was the hit of the food part, and she has agreed to demonstrate making one at the November meeting of Keenagers. So be sure to be in the fellowship hall at First Baptist Church on noon each third Thursday. You are eligible for this treat if you are fty years old or over, or if you are married to someone who is at least 50 years old—and you don’t have to belong to First Baptist Church. During the “fun” section of the meeting, secrets about the Keenagers’ teenage years were revealed by a game played by all in attendance. In spite of a busted water heater, and husband, Dan, waiting at home to go buy a new one, Judy Currie attended the noon meeting, and she won the prize for this fun game—a book entitled the “10 Secrets of the Holy Spirit.” An ongoing project has been chosen by the Keenagers, that will bene t the Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. They have encouraged shoppers to add a non-perishable item to their carts such as canned foods, paper goods, diapers, and personal care items, to be donated to the children’s homes. Each month, the donated items will be delivered and empty boxes placed in the vestibule of the church to be lled for the coming month. Just as you don’t have to be a member of First Baptist to attend Keenagers, anyone can donate to this very worthwhile project. Others helped lled the boxes this month. Children from all walks of life nd a stable and safe home in many Florida Baptist Children’s homes all over the state. Don’t forget third Thursday, Oct. 19, to make your doctor and dental appointments for another time; and join others at a covered dish luncheon, to learn how “Hope Connections” can bene t you and this community.

BY RANDY SMITH SFWMDAt a public hearing tonight, the South Florida W ater Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board adopted a $576.1 million budget for Fiscal Y ear 2012 (Oct. 1, 2011 – Sept. 30, 2012). The annual budget funds the agency’s core ood control and water supply missions as well as its continued progress to restore the South Florida ecosystem, w hich includes America’s Everglades. “The District successfully built a scally sound budget focused on core responsibilities to protect the quality of life for 7.7 million South Floridians and bene t a unique environment,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Joe Collins. “This austere budget lowers taxes for South Florida property owners while allowing the District to move forward with important projects that will restore and improve the South Florida ecosystem, including Lake Okeechobee and the Everglades.” The approved $576.1 million budget contains a signi cant investment in the environment, including $26 million appropriated by the Florida Legislature to help keep Everglades restoration progress on track. A full 70 percent of the FY2012 budget is dedicated to bene t restoration, protect South Florida’s resources and enhance ood control operations. Key highlights of the budget include: $50 million for refurbishment of the regional ood control network of 2,600 miles of canals and levees. $10.3 million to complete construction of stormwater treatment areas to further improve the quality of water owing into the Everglades. Since 2006, the District has invested more than $270 million to expand the state’s 45,000-acre network of treatment wetlands south of Lake Okeechobee by an additional 13,500 acres. $38 million to initiate pump construction that will deliver water to help restore the Loxahatchee River and enhance water supplies. $14.3 million to provide water storage in the northern Everglades through public-private partnerships. $3.7 million to complete construction of the $35.8 million Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area that will clean water owing into Lake Okeechobee. $930,000 to substantially complete construction of the C-111 Spreader Canal and the rst phase of the Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands project. The District has invested close to $36.5 million to construct these restoration projects that will bene t Biscayne Bay, Florida Bay and the Everglades. $2 million to begin water quality treatment and storage projects in the Caloosahatchee watershed. The District’s annual budget is funded by a combination of ad valorem (property) taxes, and other sources such as federal, state and local revenue; licenses; permit fees; grants; agricultural taxes; investment income and bond proceeds. About 47 percent of the total FY2012 budget comes from property taxes. The approved tax rates represent 43.6 cents per thousand dollars of value in 15 of the District’s 16 counties (the Okeechobee Basin). For example, a home with a taxable value of $100,000 (assessed value of $150,000, less the $50,000 homestead exemption) would see a total District tax bill of $43.63. For Collier County and mainland Monroe County (the Big Cypress Basin), the tax rates represent 34.2 cents per thousand dollars. A similar home in this region would see a tax bill of $34.18. For the 19th consecutive year, the District has been recognized by the Government Finance Ofcers Association of the United States and Canad a (GFOA) with its Distinguished Budget Presentation Award — the highest form of professional recognition in governmental budgeting.

During Thanksgiving week of November 2011, the Florida Trail Association will celebrate it’s 20th annual Big “O” Hike, a 9-day, 110-mile walk around Lake Okeechobee. This is South Florida’s biggest (non-fundraising) walking event and participants come from many areas of the United States and Canada. On opening day this year, Nov. 19, walkers will begin at the Pahokee Marina and head north on the Herbert Hoover Dike. There will be some variations this year due to Corps of Engineer construction projects. Nine days later the walkers will somehow return to the starting point. The purpose of the walk is threefold: To draw attention to Lake Okeechobee and the communities around the lake To highlight the Lake Okeechobee section of the Florida National Scenic Trail To introduce people to walking as an enjoyable and healthful pastime. The walkers support the local economies by spending thousands of dollars each year in campgrounds, restaurants, gas stations, and retail outlets. This year the event is being sponsored by the members of the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association. Please spread the word about this upcoming event. Walk around Lake Okeechobee (the 2011 Big “O” Hike) Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 5.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.52/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 84.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 3.6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has increased 2.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 88.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “It took the end of summer for a drop in retail gasoline prices, but I’m sure motorists won’t complain that we’re nally seeing some drops in prices,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “We’ve seen wholesale prices continue to be somewhat volatile, but I believe as we enter October we’ll see markets slowly quiet down with retail gasoline prices falling to $3.35-$3.55 on average by Thanksgiving, with the exception being typical hotspots on the West Coast,” DeHaan adds.

The organization also is a HUD-approved agency for counselling on credit, rst time home buyers and foreclosure matters. In the previous article we went through the steps of building a budget. Next is the important step of tracking your spending during the month to see exactly where your income goes. This can be done on paper, computer, or even some phone applications that help you track expenses. No matter what method you use, be sure to write down or record the date, amount you spent, and what you bought. This is made easier if you have columns on your paper or spreadsheet that you can enter the expenses under. That way at the end of the month you can add up the numbers in each column and compare the amount you spent against your items in your budget to know how you are doing. The purpose of tracking spending is to see where our money really goes. At the end of the month, see if you have any surprises in terms of what you spent. For example, many of us don’t realize how much we spend on eating out with friends or picking up fast food for our family. But even at $6/day for lunch each work day, you would end up spending about $120/month or $1,440/year. However, the purpose of a budget is not to cut out all non-essential items that you enjoy. If you do that, staying on your budget will be too hard and you’ll stop trying. Rather, leave money for some things you enjoy in your budget but do them in moderation based on what you can afford, or save them as special treats to reward yourself when you reach certain goals. In the example above, maybe you want to bring your lunch some days and save eating out with your friends for special days of the week. The rst month of using a budget you may nd your spending is very different than what you budgeted. Use your spending record to review your budget and make adjustments to categories that were too high or low. But remember to look for other expenses to cut if you have to raise the budgeted amount for some. This is also the time to think about your needs versus your wants. A need is something you must have like food, a safe place to live, and similar things. On the other hand, wants are things that are nice to have but aren’t absolutely necessary. These may include a newer car when your old one is still running ne. But if your budget is already tight, you will need to wait to buy these wants until you save enough money or until your income has increased. As you consider new purchases, take time to stop and think about them. If they are items you want rather than need, think about whether you have the money to pay for them and what you will have to give up to purchase these items now. The goal is to stop and think about your purchases rather than buying something impulsively or without considering all the costs. As you go through the next month, track your spending again using your adjusted budget. Remember to stay focused on your goals. When it gets hard to stay on budget and not spend that extra money for something you really want but don’t necessarily need, think back to your goals. Think about why you’re trying to save money and what that will allow you to do when you reach that goal. Maybe it’s buying a new car or paying off a credit card. Think about how you’ll feel when you accomplish that goal and let that help motivate you to stay on your budget. Next week we’ll continue our series and cover ways to save money.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 NOTICE OF BUDGET HEARINGThe City of Clewiston has tentatively adopted a budget for Fiscal Year 2011-2012. Apublic hearing to make a Final Decision on the budget AND TAXES will be held on: September 26, 2011 at 5:30 pm at Commission Chambers Clewiston City Hall 115 West Ventura Avenue Clewiston, Florida 33440 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 22, 2011 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades Audubon The United States’ national emblem, the Bald Eagle, was once threatened with extinction. Through re-introduction efforts, habitat management and protection under the Endangered Species Act they have made a remarkable recovery. Some Eagles are year-round Florida residents, however many head north in the spring and return in the fall to nest. Florida has the third largest breeding population of Bald Eagles following Alaska and Minnesota. It is estimated that there are more than 1,100 breeding pairs of Bald Eagles in Florida. The adult Bald Eagle is a large raptor with brown plumage and an all white head. They have a long white slightly wedge-shaped tail. This magni cent bird is not actually bald. “Bald” is derived from an older meaning of the word “piebald” which means “white-headed.” Its large hooked beak and feet are bright yellow. The legs are featherless and toes are short with large powerful talons. Their average lifespan in the wild is about 20 years. Vocalization is a high-pitched whistling or piping sound. Huge nests of branches and twigs are usually built in a tall pine tree near water, but oaks are sometime used. Their nests are often lined with fresh moss, grasses and leaves. Eggs are incubated for 32 to 34 days with young edging at 10 to 12 weeks. The plumage of immature Bald Eagles, three years old or younger is mostly brown speckled with white. Bald Eagles’ main diet is sh, but the y will eat carrion, birds and small animals. Watch the sky for these powerful yers soaring and gliding overhead.

Something Worth PonderingBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchLife is full of questions and oddities which most people don’t take time to contemplate. But I’m not most people. There are some things that just start my inquiring mind wondering. For instance, if you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done? When dog food tastes new and improved, who tested it? What if there were no hypothetical questions? Can an atheist get insurance against acts of God? And there’s more. Why do they put Braille on the drive through bank machines? If man evolved from apes why do we still have apes? What hair color do they put on the driver’s license of a bald man? And inquiring minds want to know: Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways? If a man stands in the middle of the forest speaking and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong? What was the best thing before sliced bread? But it’s not just about questions. Throughout our lives we encounter statements which also invite further contemplation. For example: Silence is often misinterpreted but never misquoted. Blessed are the exible for they shall not be bent out of shape. Growing old is inevitable. Growing up is optional. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry. From a faith perspective: You are the light of the world. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts. Atheism is a non-prophet organization. He w ho dies with the most toys is still dead. If you w ere arrested for being a Christian, would there be enough evidence to convict you? We all need to step back and regain perspective once in a while. Consider this statement from A .W. Tozer: “A real Christian is an odd number. He feels supreme love for One whom he has never seen; talks familiarly every day to Someone he cannot see; expects to go to heaven on the virtue of Another; empties himself in order to be lled; admits he is wrong so he cannot be declared right; goes down in order to get up; is strongest w hen he is weakest; richest when he is poorest and happiest when he feels the worst. He dies so he can live; forsakes in order to have; gives away so he can keep; sees the invisible; hears the inaudible; and knows that which passes knowledge.” That’s de nitely something worth pondering!Silver and GoldBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchBeing in hard times, people have their share of dif culties making ends meet. Churches are often called upon to help people who suddenly nd themselves in dire straits. Often they’re sent from other agencies or service centers and advised to seek help through religious bodies in communities. I do what I can, and I am know that others do likewise. Often I am at a loss where to send people to get help; my resources are too limited to meet many of the needs that are brought to our doorstep. Many times, when I’ve suggested something, it is evident that the person has already tried there without success. There are no shortages of legitimate needs for housing, utilities, food, rent, payments among persons who suddenly nd themselves out of work or burdened with unplanned-for expenses. The Biblical account found in Acts (chapter 3, verses 1ff) struck a chord as I re-read it one day. A beggar confronted Peter and John, crippled from birth and seeking money. His handicap must have kept him from thinking about what he might do in spite of it, so he goes to where people congregate seeking some extra change. Peter told him, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I have I give you. In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, walk (verse 6)”; then he took the man by the hand and helped him up. There could be many interpretations of this moment; maybe it’s possible that Peter and John helped the man to try something he had not tried before. The miracle might have been in causing the beggar to have faith in his own abilities; the power was within himself but he didn’t know it. Many times that has been the message from those who try to spread the meager resources entrusted to them; money is very, very short but help may be in nding another way than the usual ones already tried. What hasn’t been tried before? Who else might be able to help? Where haven’t you sought? Can I ask on your behalf hoping that I might get through to someone who has said “no” in the past? Whatever the dif culty, the gift of showing life can be complete in spite of it is what can nally make all of the difference. Those who do well are not those with no problems; they’ve learned that God gives us the power within to go forward in spite of them. I’ve found in the Biblical healing accounts that there is always something aside from saying “Here, you’re xed” and that may be more important than just the physical change. Often there is a revelation about nding faith in the person healed, the recognition of more than what is rst seen, that the person is made whole and not simply “healed.” May we all work together, and especially in these times of great need, to bring wholeness even when our resources are very limited. I hope I do my part.Parents and ChildrenBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchParents are responsible to train their children. This is done in two ways: By teaching them right from wrong and by setting a proper example by always doing the right thing. The latter is the most important because: “What you are speaks so loud that I can’t hear a word your say.” Parents need to teach their children “responsibility.” Here’s a list of things a parent should instruct their children as to what they can and cannot do. 1. I can share your life, but I cannot live it for you. 2. I can teach you things, but I cannot make you learn. 3. I can give you directions, but I cannot always lead you. 4. I can allow you freedom, but I cannot account for it. 5. I can take you to church, but I cannot make you believe. 6. I can teach your right from wrong, but I cannot decide for you. 7. I can give you love, but I cannot force it upon you. 8. I can teach you to be a friend, but I cannot make you one. 9. I can teach you to share, but I cannot make you unsel sh. 10. I can teach you respect, but I cannot force you to show honor. 11. I can tell you the facts of life, but I cannot build your reputation. 12. I can tell you about lofty goals, but I cannot achieve them for you. 13. I can teach you to obey, but I cannot answer for your actions. 14. I can warn you about sins, but I cannot make your morals. 15. I can love you as my child, but I cannot place you in God’s family. 16. I can pray for you, but I cannot make you walk with God. 17. I can teach you about Jesus, but I cannot make him your Savior. 18. I can teach you about prayer, but I cannot make you pray. 19. I can tell you how to live, but I cannot give you Eternal Life. I would advise every parent to sit down with their children and go over these 19 things. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 N O T I C E O F P R O P O S E D T A X I N C R E A S E The Board of County Commissioners of Hendry County, Florida has tentatively adopted a measure to increase its property tax levy.

In their rst series of the game, the Terrier defense stopped the Thunder, who had been steadily driving the ball down eld. The Terrier offense took over on 30 yard line and it seems their problems began on 3rd/3, when a ag was thrown before the snap and the Terriers drew their rst of many penalties of the night. The Terriers problems continued now on 3rd/13, when #3 M. Hallback found his way around Thunder defenders, pushing through anyone in his way for a long run, only to have it called back due to another Terrier penalty. It was heartbreaking to w atch the impact it had on #3 M. Hallback, and the rest of the team. The Terriers next run by #2 w as stopped by the Thunder and they took over on their own 25 yard line. Once again, a Terrier penalty results in having an incredible run called back and handing over good eld position to their opponent.. The Thunder took full advantage of the Terriers mistakes, scoring their rst TD, despite the efforts of the Terrier defense with tackles by #4 #14 and pressure on the QB by a host of other Terriers. The extra point attempt by the Thunder w as good and, with 7:20 remaining in the rst quarter, the score was (7-0). On the kick off return, Terry Hallback was barely touched as he ran 77 yards for a Terrier touchdown, but a mistake by the holder caused the failed extra point attempt, and set the score at (7-6). Once again they quickly repaired the damage done by the previous penalties and mistakes, but their luck would soon run out. The Terriers defense stopped the Thunder offense in their next drive, but ags were thrown and the of cial headed to the Terrier sideline with a warning given to one Terrier Asst. Coach, for his toes being 2"-3" over the line, and to warn Head Coach Maurice Belser, the position coach, for #13 that he had already been given three warnings by the of cial for his shoulder pads sticking out of his shirt. The Terriers fumble on a punt return, set the Thunder up to score another TD and extra point, late in the rst quarter. (14-6). The Terriers turned the ball over four times in the rst quarter. The Terrier defense was no stranger to mistakes getting two penalties in one series, and soon after the Thunder would score again to widen their lead (20-6). Despite good efforts by Terrier QB # A. Hallback, #3 M. Hallback, #11 Maurice James, #4, and #8, who caused and recovered a Thunder fumble, the Terriers were not able to make anything happen in the second quarter. The Terriers seemed to take one step in the right direction but mistakes and penalties would put them two steps behind each time. The repercussions from dropping balls, even though they recovered the ball, to personal fouls and penalties, all started to take a mental toll on the Terrier players and even the half time break was not enough to pull this team together. The score was 33-6 heading into the fourth quarter. The Terrier sideline was strewn with players who were either in conversation with people along the fence, or sitting far apart from other teammates. The Terrier coaches and some team mates could be heard telling them to shake things off and encouraging them to stay in the game. One Assistant Coach summed it up best when he told them now was the time for them to show some character. It seemed no efforts could reach a few of the players, who were already agitated and inappropriately acting out their frustration, and it only increased as they were urged on by a few adults lining the fence. The Terrier fans in the stands and the cheerleaders continued voicing their belief and support for the players, as it became more visible to everyone that emotions were running high on the Terrier sidelines. The fans were spread out and farther back and unfortunately most of their support never reached the ears of those on the side lines. The most dif cult moment to watch came at the end of an incredible play made by #11 Maurice James, who ran over 80 yards for a Terrier TD. The fans and players were both up on their feet cheering and elated over a much needed play that seemed to revive the team. The joy was short lived, when within seconds of reaching the end zone, a visibly upset #11 Maurice James, made his way to the side lines after his TD run was called back. This incident only added fuel to the re for a few of the Terrier players who could no longer hold their emotions in check. The Terriers still had players who were lining up to play and giving all they had to nish the game, but fumbles and more mistakes only followed and late in the fourth quarter, an exchange of punches between a Thunder player and a Terrier player, sent at least one Terrier player running onto the eld, stripping off his gear as an attempt to hold him back by an assistant coach failed. The majority of the team, when dealing with these raw emotions, were able to maintained their composure and showed the type of character expected by the coaches, fans and the whole community. In this game, against a more formidable opponent, the Terriers could not overcome all their mistakes and penalties. They found that no mistake went unnoticed by this group of of cials. The Terriers had 145 yards in penalties and if you compare it to the 139 yards they had in total offense, it becomes clear that they may have become their own worst enemy. The Terriers play Evangelical Christian in a non-district home game at Terrier Field at 7:30 p.m. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 22, 2011 TerriersContinued From Page 1 PHOTO / LAURA MATHISYour 2011 Moore Haven Terrier football team.

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.

Not only does conserving water and energy help reduce our imprint on the planet, it can also ease the burden on our wallets. “Many Americans now are nding new and innovative ways to save on water and energy costs in their homes without sacri cing the type of lifestyle they’re used to,” says Tom Moskitis, Executive Director of the Council for Responsible Energy. “Little changes can go a long way.” W ash Full LoadsWhen it comes to dishes and laundry, wait until you have a full load before running the appliance. And use cold water for laundry and air dry dishes when you can. Heat With Natural GasA gas water heater can heat water up to twice as fast as an electric one. And a natural gas water heater emits up to half the carbon emissions of an electric water heater. Go TanklessFor even more ef ciency, install a tankless water heater, which heats water on demand. A natural gas tankless water heater, near the point of use, eliminates energy loss caused by tank heaters that have unused water cooling in the tank. This can save hundreds of gallons of water over the course of a year. Plus, such tankless heaters last almost twice as long as tank water heaters. Take Low-Volume ShowersReplace your high-volume shower head with an aerated shower head, which uses a mix of water and air to produce a ow that feels strong but can save up to 60 percent of water compared to an average shower -reducing both your water and energy use. Avoid the “Phantom Load” Appliances such as your TV, DVD player, cell phone charger, computer and other gadgets consume energy just by being plugged in. Unplug them when not in use. If that’s too cumbersome, plug them into a powerstrip that you can turn on and off with just one ick of a switch. Fix LeaksFrom dripping faucets to drafty doors and windows, leaks can be a major source of energy and water waste. Being a responsible homeowner or tenant and attending to those annoying home improvements can signi cantly reduce your monthly water and energy bills. Tips to Save Water and Energy at Home

He said there should be a standard group of regulations for use of the property and for the application process for the individual community associations to decide which agreement they w ould prefer. “The time may have come to deal with each of these community associations and put them into some kind of arrangement, be it county managed or another management agreement,” Pringle told the Board. Commissioner Jones said Washington Park does not have the money to maintain the facility. He urged the commission to quickly approve these agreements. He said all associations should have the same rules. A standard management agreement could be available for the Oct. 11 Commission meeting. Chairman Russell Echols said it is hard to make one size t all. He said there must be some format to choose a path of management. He admitted anytime you start something new there w ill be some problems. “There’s a lot of devil in the details. At the same time everybody should have an opportunity to be treated fairly,” he added. Commissioner Donna Storter-Long said this issue never came up when the Commission spent $60,000 to improve the Lakeport Community Center. She said the county should move ahead w ith building a community center in Washington Park without further delay. “I don’t think it is fair to put on the county manager of ce to schedule events at these buildings. I’m concerned about the legal rami cations. W ould we stand here right now if Washington Park hadn’t come forward to have a building built w ould be doing this with other associations,” she noted. Pringle said the county can build any structure that they want on any county property. He said the county management proposal would include rules and regulations that the commission would set. “Apply those rules equitably across the board. Many counties have a parks and recreation department to oversee these facilities. It is a responsibility the County Manager assigns to another employee. Whoever does it needs to do it under standardized provisions,” he added. Storter-Long said no county buildings should be built until this issue is resolved which include a re station for Moore Haven. EMS Director Bob Jones said the re department has needed to be replaced for 20 years. He said the county has $1 million worth of equipment that needs to be housed in a proper facility. In other actions, the Board voted to approve a small scale amendment on behalf of Timothy James for 1.96 acres at 3342 County Road 721 Loop in Lakeport that was the former home of South Florida Venture Tours. The zoning and the future land use map would change from commercial to residential on this property if approved by the Florida Department of Community Affairs. Mr. James apologized to the board for his decision to place ll dirt on right of way owned by South Florida Water Management. He entered into a contract with the district to cure that violation. The Commission approved an application to rezone a 48 acre tract at 2004 Crescent Avenue in Muse from residential general to open use agriculture requested by Stanley and Patricia Wegscheid. The density on the property would be greatly reduced to one home per 20 acres. Commissioners approved an asphalt bid with C.W. Roberts Contracting, Inc. for $152,644. Commissioners said this was a reduced rate from their average asphalt bid so they decided to resurface more roads this year. Commissioners also agreed to provide u shots for all County employees. The shots will be administered by Glades EMS crews. Commissioners voted to hire AIM Engineering to provide engineering services for a resurfacing project on Williams Road. The funds will come from a grant through the Florida Department of Transportation. Commissioners also renewed a lease for the 40 acre land ll and Sheriff’s Gun Range with the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The terms of the lease are $300 per year for the next 50 years. ParkContinued From Page 1 BY CHARLES M. MURPHY Glades County DemocratThe Okeechobee Yearling Middle School volleyball winning streak was snapped at 44 matches Monday when the Lady Bulls fell to the Seminoles of Pemayetv Emahakv at the Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation in two games, 3028 and 25-23. Yearling had gone four years without a loss in a volleyball match one of the longest streaks in Florida. Coach Bruce Conrad said his team struggled in their receive of serves and in their serves in the match against the talented Seminoles. “All good streaks come to an end,” he added. Rachel Bryan had nine kills, three blocks and one assist. Cheyenne Nunez had six aces, six kills, and two digs. Megan Hargraves had two aces and three digs for Yearling. Conrad said the Seminoles were well prepared by their coaching staff and played very well. “I give them a tremendous amount of credit. They played well. We did not.” Yearling trailed (7-0) in the rst game and battled back to take a brief 25-24 lead. They had two chances to serve out the match but couldn’t convert the opportunities. Yearling trailed (18-12) in the second game but fought back to tie at 23 before losing the nal two points of the match. “I was very impressed with the play of my sixth and seventh graders, especially in game two as their serve receiving, digs and saves helped us to come back in the game,” he said. Brighton Charter has a winning streak of their own as their only losses last year were to Yearling. The two teams will meet again in Okeechobee on Oct. 5, at 4:30 p.m. YMS Volleyball Team Loses to Brighton Charter Submitted Photo6th-8th grade Citizens of the MonthFrom left to right: Tommy Canales, Delia “Dee-Dee” Hendricks, Nadiasbel Serrano, Linda Santiago, Ricky Madrid.
