MURPHY Glades County DemocratTwo Muse men were charged with dealing in stolen property and operating a chop shop and held on $50,000 bond at the Glades County Jail after an undercover operation involving Glades and Hendry County Deputies November 13. Clayton Wilson, 27, and Ralph Lyons, 33, were arrested at a location on Tom Coker Road in Muse after Deputies claimed they found parts from two stolen vehicles on the property. The arrest report from Detective Michael Pepitone stated the owners of a stolen vehicle in Hendry County noticed the parts from the 1985 Chevrolet were being sold on Craigslist and alerted law enforcement in Hendry County Later an undercover of cer from the Glades Sheriff went to the location and worked out a deal w ith Wilson to purchase the truck bed for $350, the report added. Detective Pepitone said a controlled phone A ll ege d Chop Shop Buste d Ralph Lyons Event recalls environmental championBY NANCY DALEOn a beautiful Sunday afternoon, November 13, beneath moss-covered cypress trees along the edge of Fisheating Creek at the FC Outpost and Campground, more than 100 people gathered to honor environmental warrior Ellen Peterson in what she requested as her last wish: A going away celebration at Fisheating Creek and at her sanctuary in Estero, "Happehatchee." Travelers led into Fisheating Creek Outpost and Campground from across Florida to pay a tribute to Peterson's living legacy. Paula House, environmental lawyer and Treasurer of Save our Creek, hosted the "celebration of life" asking speakers to share stories and remarks about Peterson's life and living philosophy to preserve Florida's natural beauty, endangered species, and threatened pristine rivers. Music was provided by "Natural Spirit" musicians Heidi and Jim Heinrich who presented an original composition: The "Fisheating Creek" song. One speaker, longtime environmentalist, Rhonda Roff, who headed a brigade of environmentalists in 2000 defeating the proposed construction of a coal- red power plant in Glades County, talked about Peterson's pursuit of "longevity" as project goals. Roff said that even at 87, Ellen was "a warrior who inspired her so much to continue to work harder."

BY MARK KINGThe Lake Okeechobee water level is up, temperature is cooling off, and the bass are moving in off the main lake toward traditional spawning areas. What this all ads up to some great bass shing here on the big lake as we head into our season here in South Florida. The number of bass being caught has been crazy and some really nice ones over seven pounds are showing up almost everyw here on the lake. If you sh a tournament on the lake, you had better have at least thirty pounds in ve sh; records will be broken this year again in tournaments on Okeechobee. I have been shing from Kramer Island to the Monkey Box with some really great success catching bass on both arti cial lures and on the wild shiners. If you like shing with the wild shiners than be prepared to use a lot of them, last week I used more than seven dozen in just the morning and still had the afternoon to sh. The arti cial bite has been really good also but you do have to look a little harder to nd the sh -when you do, they are really stacked up in one area. Some areas that have been really good are Long Point, Ritta Island, Buzzards Roost, East Wall, West Wall, and the Turners Cove area. And that is just what's going on here at the south end of the lake. I usually start shing the outside grass line and move back in the thicker stuff til I nd the sh. The wind and dirtier water from out on the main lake being pushed in to the grass has a lot to do with where these bass are positioned. My arti cial lure selection has been pretty small with Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper being my go to bait and a jig with a Charlie's Worm Craw and a Salt Stick O being my next two favorite lures. Braided line is a must for shing in the heavy cover and Diamond braid in 65 pound test gets the job done for me, along with this you will need to use a pretty heavy action rod to get these bass out of the grass. You can once again get around on the lake almost anywhere without worrying about hitting the bottom with your motor. God blessed us with water when the rainy season was over and we had lost hope for a good winter here on the lake. He worked his greatness for us and now we are going to have one of our best seasons ever on world famous Lake Okeechobee. So it is time to get your boat out and get on the water because the shing is great and it isn't quite as hot this time of the year to be on the water. The crappie shing has also been really good on the lake and some good areas to try are the outside of Uncle Joe's cut, around Bird Island, and of course the Kissimmee River is always good this time of the year. Duck season is also in and I have had some really good reports on a lot of ducks on the lake, anyone wanting to get out and do some duck hunting can contact me and I will get them set up for a great day of duck hunting on Lake Okeechobee. Good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.Capt. Mark King is a full time guide out of Roland Martin’s Marina and Resort in Clewiston Florida.

New study sheds light on possibilitiesBY MICKIE ANDERSON UFFood-safety experts have long believed that Salmonella bacteria could only enter tomatoes through wounds in the stem or fruit — but a new University of Florida laboratory study shows it can also happen another way. Plant pathologist Ariena van Bruggen, a professor in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, published a paper today in the online journal PLoS One, with research ndings that show — for the rst time — that Salmonella can enter tomato plants through intact leaves, travel through the plant and end up in the fruit itself. But she says she can’t stress enough that it isn’t at all easy for it to happen, even in the lab, and would be unlikely under eld conditions. “The message is that yes, (Salmonella) can be internalized in tomato, but it’s rare — the chance is so low,” she said. “I would tell consumers not to worry too much.” Although van Bruggen, a member of UF’s Emerging Pathogens Institute, described her experiment as a “worst-case scenario,” she said the ndings suggest tomato growers and packers should continue to review their already-stringent safety standards, taking a look at factors such as irrigation water sources, the possibility of wild animals getting too close to plants and the use of surfactants. Keith Schneider, a food safety expert and IFAS faculty member, called the study’s ndings intriguing, but said hand-washing by consumers and food handlers is still likely to have the single biggest impact on whether people become ill from anything they eat. “There is probably a far bigger risk of people becoming sick from not washing their hands, or their kids not washing their hands, than the possibility of this route of infection occurring in nature,” he said. Tomatoes are a $619 million annual industry in Florida and food-safety scares do tremendous damage to growers. In 2008, the industry lost an estimated $100 million when federal health of cials erroneously blamed a Salmonella outbreak on domestically grown tomatoes, only to announce later that contaminated jalapeo and Serrano peppers from Mexico were responsible. Salmonella is among the most common foodborne illnesses, often spread by raw or undercooked meat, poultry or eggs, but sometimes through contaminated produce. It can cause abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. Results from the 2 -year study were published today in the online, open-access journal Public Library of Sciences (PLoS) One. To test the hypothesis that Salmonella might be able to enter tomato leaves, van Bruggen and two postdoctoral researchers brie y dipped one leaf from each of 84 tomato plants into a potent solution that contained high concentrations of Salmonella, plus a surfactant commonly used by tomato growers to ensure that pesticides or fungicides stay on the plants. Another 42 plants were left as a control group. Later, they tested adjacent, non-inoculated leaves and the tomatoes themselves. The study was conducted over a 10-month period and then replicated. In the study’s rst phase, nine tomatoes from one inoculated plant tested positive for Salmonella. In the second, Salmonella was found in adjacent, non-inoculated leaves from eight tomato plants; as well as 12 tomatoes from two plants that were leaf-inoculated with a different strain of Salmonella. Reggie Brown, manager of the Florida Tomato Committee, which has regulatory authority over most of the state’s tomato production, said the industry has some of the most stringent safety standards in agriculture, anywhere. In Florida, safe tomato production practices are required by law. “Food safety is never an absolute, but we are doing everything that good science and good practices tell us to do to produce the safest product possible,” he said. “Ninety-nine point nine nine nine nine percent of produce is safe.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Salmonella can Reach Tomatoes Through Leaves SUBMITTED PHOTO

call was made to the second suspect Mr. Lyons to inquire about a second vehicle that had been located on the property.

During the 19th century Northern Mockingbirds nearly vanished from the East Coast of the United States where they were trapped or young w ere taken from nests for sale as caged birds, but their numbers have rebounded. The Northern Mockingbird is now a common bird that breeds in Southeastern Canada, the United States, northern Mexico, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Greater Antilles. It is often seen in suburban habitats and elds on low hanging branches, fences, power lines or on the ground. During harsh weather northern birds may move to southern states. Northern Mockingbirds don't usually visit backyard feeders, but prefer foraging for insects, berries and seeds This medium-sized songbird is generally 8 12 inches long with a long tail, small head, long thin bill and long legs. The short rounded wings have two wingbars. The white patch on its wings and tail become obvious when the Northern Mockingbird is in ight. They are best known for singing during the day, through the night or during full moon. They are good mimics of other birds, animals, squeaky gates, machinery, car horns, barking dogs and w histling. Humans might be fooled by the Mockingbird's songs, but their calls often fail to fool other birds, such as the Florida Scrub-Jay. Males may have 50 to 200 songs with females singing more quietly and less often than males. Common calls include a harsh dry "chak" or a piercing series of notes. Nests are built by both the male and female with the male doing most of the work while the female watches for predators. Mockingbird will aggressively defend their nests. The female lays two to six pale blue or greenish white eggs splotched with red or brown in twig nest lined with grasses, dead leaves and trash. Incubation takes 12 13 days with the young being born with light gray down. The male and female feed the young for one to two weeks. Fledglings will leave its parents when it is able to y and nd food on its own. "The oldest Northern Mockingbird on record was 14 years and 10 months old" (Cornell's All About Birds).

Sunrise Restaurant hosted the meeting and the conversation over dinner revolved around friendly banter and the use of personal I.D.s being used as a form of voter identi cation. On their agenda, they had wanted to discuss several changes to the bylaws that had been proposed in their previous meeting in October. The new bylaws that have been put into effect follow Florida Statutes and were carefully worked together by Committee Chairman Joe Thomas, V ice Chair Carol Griggs and State Committee members Mitchell and Mary Thomas. In essence, bylaws are laws that are applied locally or in a limited capacity to regulate certain procedures. Further details were not discussed as the topic of conversation switched to a through covering of the absentee ballot/vote by mail campaign. It appears that if the committee can distribute and collect more and more democrat voters to participate in the voting by mail program, the Hendry/Glades committees can qualify for a grant of $2,000. Such an amount would prove to be v ery useful to the group as it could be utilized for campaigning and outreach efforts. According to committee members, the reason for this push, which is happening nationwide, is to circumvent any possible voter suppression that has traditionally been a dif culty for groups who have always voted Democrat. Such groups include: college students, elderly, minorities, etc. Joe Thomas stated that such voter suppression has occurred in places that contain a strong Republican presence. Since vote-by-mail was originally a Republican creation, the Democratic Party is adapting to the game and using that same program to boost their numbers. The drawback to using the vote-by-mail program is that if there is an small error that is agged, the vote can be held back and investigated thoroughly. The committee is encouraging all voters to update the information on their voter cards so that is up to date. An example was given of an elderly women who was losing her sight. She had used vote-bymail but her signature was considerably larger than the one she had provided when she rst registered some 35 years ago. Her larger signature was due to her not being able to see what she was writing but her vote eventually was thrown out due to the error. The meeting was wrapped up with a discussion of the Jefferson-Jackson Day event. The event is a major fund raising day for the Democratic Party. An idea of having the event aboard a riverboat as a cruise. Options were considered as to whether it would be feasible to have the riverboat come up to the LaBelle/Port LaBelle area. Aside from that, the other concern was who would be the guest speaker for the event. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's (DFL) name was brought up but and considered the favorite choice. However, the committee decided that she may be considered a little too progressive for some of the area Democrats. In the end, Rod Smith, Chair of the Florida Democratic Party, was decided upon. A tentative date of late February to rst week of March was chosen to have the event. Their next meeting will be on Dec. 29.

The Florida Forest Service prov ides burn authorizations to land managers, ranchers and farmers to burn for the following reasons: Ranchers/ Dairy Farmers use prescribed burning to increase the diversity and structure of vegetation to bene t wildlife and maintain livestock production. Rancher's burn during the cold months in order to prepare the land for grazing during the spring and summer months. Farmers burn between crops. Fire burns the stubble of the crop after it has been harv ested. The re also enriches the soil and helps combat disease, insects and weeds. The ability of farmers to burn sugarcane is signi cant, burning before harvesting allows more ef cient sugarcane harvesting in the eld and improves sugar quality and recovery in the factory. Land Clearing companies pile the dead v egetation and burn it instead of hauling it. Burning reduces the overall cost to the home builder. Land Managers who manage large parcels of land for private landowners, or federal, state and local government agencies use prescribe re to manage their land. The re cleans the forest oor of leaf litter allowing new growth to sprout. (for example: Water Management, State Parks, Fish, Wildlife Conservation Commission and private large parcel) Citrus Growers pile burns for pruning and cleaning the orange groves. Burning, as opposed to hauling the debris to land ll, reduces the product cost to the consumer. Vegetation goes into a dormant state during the cold months turning the lush green into a dry brown. The cold and dry north wind allows land managers, sugarcane farmers and ranchers an opportunity to use the cooler temperatures and lower humidity following the front to their favor. November to June marks the dry season for Florida. There is a brief window in these six months that allow ranchers, sugarcane farmers and land managers an opportunity to burn before burn restrictions due to wild re activity could go into effect. If the winter cold fronts bring enough rain to temper wild re conditions and wild re activity remains normal or below, burn restrictions may not be necessary. Additional information: There are Florida Statues and regulations for every category of burning. The Florida Forest Service is responsible to oversee that these re privileges are not impinging upon other's rights. All individuals are liable for suppression costs if the res escape. There is a certi ed burner program that gives authorizations to individuals who have been trained and certi ed in order that they may be able to burn under more adverse weather conditions. Since January 2011, the Florida Forest Service, Okeechobee District Authorizations for burning: Glades County 7,932 Authorizations, 499,728 acres, 11,729 piles Okeechobee County 7,744 Authorizations, 271,601 acres, 16,240 piles Martin County 6,694 Authorizations, 127,015 acres, 18,031 piles Saint Lucie County 11,152 Authorizations, 37,293 acres, 38,596 piles Indian River County 6,509 Authorizations, 79,066 acres, 15,144 piles Highlands County 17,336 Authorizations, 349,780 acres, 30,392 piles Anyone needing additional information may contact the local Florida Forest Service at 772-260-0053 (St. Lucie, Indian River, Martin, Okeechobee Counties) 863-655-6407 (Highlands and Glades Counties).

CENTRAL COUNTY WATER CONTROL DISTRICT 402234 CN 11/10,17,24/2011 15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Roofing visited Fisheating Creek in the 80’s, captured in his trademark black and white pictures, the serene beauty of the Creek in his publications. He spoke about Peterson’s tireless effort, not only to protect Fisheating Creek but Charlotte Harbor Natural Estuary. She served on multiple committees such as the Agency of Bay Management, Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida, President of Save Our Creeks, The Growth Management Coalition, The Everglades Committee, the Environmental Peace and Education Center and the Sierra Club’s Calusa Group. Peterson founded the Calusa Group more than 30 years ago and remained chairperson until her death. Clyde Butcher emphasized, “Many people in Florida do not understand the importance of the environment and what it does for them as they live in cities but the Spirit of the Creek is Ellen.” Depicting her life in quotes, one of Peterson’s favorite axioms was “you don’t make a difference if you don’t show up.” Evidence of her efforts is recognized in saving the Florida panther, preserving heritage trees and endangered species. She also succeeded in obtaining outstanding Florida waterways designation for many local rivers and streams. In the 1980s portions of Fisheating Creek owned by Lykes Brothers was closed as a “navigable waterway” and the land sold to the State, Ellen Peterson, fought to re-open the creek and campground to the public. After a ten-year legal battle with the support of 300 Palmdale residents, Attorney General Bob Butterworth, and environmental attorney David Guest, Peterson became the concessionaire of Fisheating Creek Campground, and the Creek was of cially designated as a “navigable waterway.” Today, Patty and Allen Register, who own “Gatorama” the last roadside attraction in Palmdale, are the concessionaries under the new name Fisheating Creek Outpost and Campground. Closing the celebration with a silent meditation, friends gathered for a buffet lunch, and then to canoes/kayaks on the bank of the Creek to meander together to the old “Memorial Tree” where some of Peterson’s ashes were cast. Peterson’s tranquil Estero home, called Happenhatchee,” resting within a bamboo forest with a hanging bridge across the Estero River, is where the remainder of her ashes were scattered at a second “celebration” of life.” She bequeathed the site to Nature to “remain a sanctuary; a place where people can come and do nothing, or do something,” she said. In Florida, the pristine wilderness is a unique escape and for some, an effort worth “ ghting for” in an era of creeping urbanization. Harris Friedman, succeeding as President and one of the founders, along with Ellen Peterson of Save Our Creek, remarked that Peterson was a unique person, “humorous, courageous and dedicated to service whose life inspired many today to further her lifelong efforts.” WarriorContinued From Page 1 SUBMITTED PHOTOSSome of the many vistas that Fisheating Creek has that would not exist today if it weren’t fo r Ellen Peterson.
