The conservation easements established on the 1,278-acre American Prime property along the Caloosahatchee River in Glades County is a key natural landscape through which Florida panthers can disperse from habitats farther south. This acquisition required a sequence of events involving multiple agencies and was accomplished just in time to prevent the land from going to foreclosure auction.

Captain King says Lake O shing, Keys shing great this time of yearBY MARK KINGWhat a spring it has been here in South Florida with the bass shing on Lake Okeechobee being awesome and the tarpon shing in the Keys being just as good. I have been pretty busy wearing both hats. I know that I haven't sent out a shing report for a few weeks and wanted to let everyone know that the bass and tarpon are really biting here in Florida. First thing I want to talk about is Lake Okeechobee and the water level starting to get low. It is at 11.56 feet above sea level and dropping more each day. But the good thing is that the bass are still biting and the arti cial bite has been as good as the live bait bite has been using wild shiners. My guide clients are catching some really nice bass up to nine pounds, and the numbers of bass being caught are still great for the water getting low and the summer time heat starting to get pretty warm. I have been shing mostly the shoal but have wandered down south toward Kramer Island, and have also done pretty well there too. The bass are moving out toward the main lake with the water level going down; this means that most all of the points have bass stacked up on them. The bass have also moved out into the eel grass on the shoal. Catching the bass on topwater early in the morning and then using Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper swimbaits the rest on the day has been my best method for catching some nice bass. I have also been doing pretty well on a big jig and craw trailer. For shing in this eel grass, a heavy action rod and at least 50-pound braided line is a must. For shing the jig in the reeds and bulrush I have been using an extra heavy 7' 11" Okuma rod. I have been catching a few bass on a bluegill colored wake bait by swimming it around the bluegill beds, but you need to make long casts so as not to scare these bass in this shallow clear water. Speaking of bluegill, I have never seen so many beds as I have seen the past couple weeks in areas like the shoal, West Wall, East Wall, and both sides of Ritta Island. If you want to catch some monster bluegill then Lake Okeechobee is the place to be right now. Now on to one of my favorite sh, the giant tarpon and the Florida Keys is the place to be if you want to do battle with one of these magni cent sh. I have been doing a good number of charters here the past month in the Keys and the shing has been great with a good number of hook ups and quite a few sh making it to the boat for pictures and measuring. I have been shing from Grassy Key area to the Bahia Honda Bridge and seeing a lot of tarpon everywhere. I have been using mostly crabs and pin sh for bait, but if you can get them, mullet work great. I use a pretty heavy action rod and reel spooled with fty pound test braided line, an eighty pound test uorocarbon leader and usually a 7/0 circle hook. Drifting the live bait with the current works best and the more the tide is ushing bait through the bridges the better the shing is. If you have never been to the Florida Keys to sh for tarpon or to just enjoy the tropical atmosphere then let me recommend it to anyone who needs a stress relief. I also have my 20' Key Hopper ats boat for sale if anyone is looking for a great ats boat just contact me for details. Until next report good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.

The Glades County Democrat i s is compiling a list of questions for t he local candidates. What questions would you like to add to the list for the c andidates for local of ce? Email your questions to gcdnews@newszap. c om, post them on the Glades Count y Democrat Facebook page or post t hem on the Glades County forum at www.newszap.com.  Signs and shirts are just a way for candidates to get their name out into the public eye. It is known that this is an election strategy. But I don’t vote because of signs but because of how the candidate talks with me or makes the effort to know who I am or what my needs are for our town. I agree that the candidate should not focus on what the others are not doing and actions do speak louder than words.  In the upcoming presidential election, I don’t know how to vote. Could we get them add “none of the above” to the ballot and start over if no one gets at least 50 percent of the votes?Water managers Is there any truth to the rumor that the governor may just disband the South Florida Water Management District and start over? It may be the only way to clean that mess out.4-H Congratulations to the 4-H clubs, members, leaders and adult volunteers on another succesful year. This program is a great one for the children of Glades County. It takes a lot of work on the part of some very dedicated volunteers to keep it going.Graduates I want to commend the Class of 2012 honor students who were in the paper last week. They have worked hard to earn the awards and honors. Now they will have to work even harder in college and in the future. The world they are entering as adults is a dif cult one. The older generation has made a mess of the economy. It will take some new ideas and a lot of hard work to bring this country back to greatness. Community Forum/Speak Out By Tom ByrdWelcome to orida.newszap.com! For nearly 90 years, Glades County area residents have continually turned to the Glades County Democrat for local news of their community. We appreciate the support readers have shown to us over the years and we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving our readers and advertisers. But the world has changed much the last ve years, let alone the last century. While the de nition of local news may have remained the same, the method in which readers may receive that news has changed dramatically. Several years ago the Democrat introduced an online component to our newspaper. Free classieds and public forums were the most attractive elements to the site, but admittedly, we fell short when it came to providing updated news in a convenient and timely package. All that has now changed. Beginning this month, we’re very pleased to introduce our “new and improved” digital component—a site we invite you to check out for yourself at orida.newszap.com. Unlike our prior site, orida.newszap.com offers up-to-date news, expanded photo and video galleries, comprehensive calendars and much more helpful information to readers looking for news not just in Moore Haven, but throughout the Glades and Big Lake area. We’ve combined the talents of our news team and contributors to create an online product that we think will be helpful and meaningful to our readers throughout the county and region. Visitors to our “new and improved” orida. newszap.com will immediately notice some new features:  Daily local news updates from our acclaimed network of community newspapers serving Glades County and the entire region.  Expanded photo galleries and videos.  The latest in local sports and entertainment news to provide you with helpful information on where to go and what to do.  Enhanced and comprehensive community calendars that are simple to use and easy for anyone to submit events.  And of course, we’ve kept some of the most popular features such as free online classi eds, local real estate information and obituaries. The site overall has a whole new feel and look. For simplicity, we consolidated a number of pages. We think it’s more attractive, interactive and easier to navigate. Most important, we think the ne w sites will be more useful to you as you look for current information pertaining to your local neighborhood.New look for community forumsAs part of the overall redesign, we have changed the format and location of the public discussion forums. In the past, the forums were a separate entity, and one of our goals during the redesign was to integrate them into the fabric of the overall website. We chose to do this because we recognize that the public discussion forums are an excellent example of a cohesive online community, and we hope to build and expand this online communit y by extending and nurturing it. To nurture the online community in the forums, we want to make it easier for people to obtain local, relevant and credible news they can then weave into their civic discussion. The new orida. newszap.com makes this possible. While our new forum platform has some improvements over the old, users may notice some differences in features and functionality. In the spirit of continuous improvement, we are committed to upgrading and adding features to the ne w forums as soon as possible. But the primary purpose of orida.newszap. com remains unchanged. We seek to provide citizens with the electronic equivalent of a town meeting hall—a place for people to gather, socialize, conduct business, exchange local news and discuss public issues. As in the past, our public forums will help facilitate discussion and debate (with civility). As we grow, we will add blogs for different points of vie w and to provide perspective. If you’ve never visited our online site—or if you haven’t seen us lately—please take a moment to visit us at orida.newszap.com. We welcome your ideas about how to improve newszap.com and make it more useful and informative. Please e-mail your suggestions to help@newszap.com.

University of Florida honeybee researcher Jamie Ellis is interested in what happens to bees that encounter chemicals and Varroa mites — but he’s even more interested in how younger bees fare long-term after facing those challenges. Scientists have been trying to explain the bee-killing malady known as Colony Collapse Disorder, which causes honeybees to abandon their hives, become ill and die. Ellis’ lab has been studying how combinations of environmental factors — chemicals, pathogens, natural enemies — affect bees. Since widespread honeybee die-offs began to be reported around the U.S. in 2006, researchers have been working to pin down a cause. Bee pollination is critical for much of the food we eat and some estimates suggest the U.S. bee industry is responsible for pollinating as much as $15 billion worth of crops every year. In the Ellis lab’s most recent study, outlined recently in the Journal of Insect Physiology, researchers reared honey bees from young larvae to the pupal stage. The UF researchers then exposed the immature bees to a variety of chemicals used in agriculture and beekeeping, including two fungicides, two herbicides and ve insecticides. They also exposed them to Varroa mites, which weaken bee colonies. During the experiment, a control group of bees wasn’t exposed to anything, others were exposed only to the chemicals, or only to mites, and some of the bees were exposed to a combination of chemicals and mites. The researchers gauged the effects on larvae by analyzing the activity of about 50 genes associated with stress, immune response and bee development. Ellis, an assistant professor of entomology in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, stressed that the scientists were only able to screen for expression in some — but not all — genes. They had expected that exposing the bees to the combination of mites and chemicals might produce a more pronounced negative impact, but they didn’t nd any. But their results did suggest, among other things, that two common fungicides — chemicals used to protect crops from fungal infections — apparently have more in uence on bees than previously believed. By examining the selected genes, researchers found the fungicides had pronounced effects on the larvae, although they are generally considered non-toxic to bees. “The data suggest that fungicides are not innocuous to bees,” he said. Ellis’ next study will go much further, with scientists preparing to raise the bees from larvae to adulthood, labeling and following each individual bee. “In most studies, investigators treat a eld with a product, put bee colonies adjacent to the eld and then sample whole colony strength after pesticide exposure. At the end of the day, all you are able to say is ‘this colony is responding in this way to the eld treatment.’ You don’t know why it’s responding in that way. When we begin to label bees, it will permit us to investigate an area that has yet to be studied. We’ll be able to follow individual bees throughout their entire lives, thus allowing us to determine long-term impacts of pesticides on bees.” Besides Ellis, the research team members included former UF postdoctoral research fellow Aleš Gregorc; Michael Scharf, a former UF entomologist and now the O. Wayne Rollins/Orkin Endowed Chair in Urban Entomology at Purdue University, and Jay D. Evans, research entomologist with the USDA’s Agricultural Research Service in Beltsville, Md. The study was funded by the National Honey Board, the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Farm Theft deterrent practices: 1) Don’t keep excess fuel in tanks when pumps are not being used. 2) Keep gates and fuel tanks locked. 3) Do not to set fuel pumps or tanks in areas which are in close proximity of public access/ gates or where they can be seen from the roadway. 4) Don’t store excess chemicals on the farm, try to only order what is needed on a daily basis and reorder as necessary. 5) Educate employees to record tag number of suspicious vehicles on property. 6) Set up video cameras or game camera’s on chemical sheds, fuel storage areas and workshops, etc. 7) Measure and record fuel tank levels/ amounts before/after fuel deliveries. It’s just good business practices to con rm delivery amounts. 8) Contact Law Enforcement on all suspicious incidents, no matter how small. It helps us develop intelligence needed to apprehend the criminal. 9) Develop an “owner applied number” system for your assets over a certain dollar value (ex: engrave or stamp the # on equipment with a value of $300, or whatever value you choose). 10) Take photos of your equipment with a certain dollar value (evidence for law enforcement to help recover and return stolen goods to the rightful owner). 11) Conduct Ag meetings with local law enforcement periodically monthly, quarterly.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Red-headed Woodpecker is a strikingly tri-colored bird that is found in deciduous woodlands in the eastern United States. These birds are considered “near-threatened” because of the decline in their population over much of their breeding range. They are a partially migratory woodpecker with a somewhat patchy distribution, but they are occasionally reported living and breeding in inland Florida. The bright red hood that covers the entire head and neck of the adult Red-headed Woodpecker makes it easy to identify at rest or in ight. Adults have a black back, tail and wings with white underparts and white secondary wing feathers. Juveniles have a gray-brown head and black bars on white secondary feathers. Immature birds will have some red in the head. Their call is a loud “tchur-tchur”. Red-headed Woodpeckers nest in dead trees or dead branches, preferring well-weathered snags in pastures and open woods, as well as parks and open urban and rural habitats. These birds will move into areas where land has been recently burned or cleared. They will attack other birds to keep them out of their territory and are known to remove the eggs of other species from nests and nest boxes. Red-headed Woodpeckers will store food and is the only woodpecker species known to cover stored food with wood or bark. Insects and seeds are hidden in cracks in wood, under bark, in fence posts and under roof shingles. They have a habit of perching on a branch, “hawking” for insects which they catch in ight or on roadways. These birds will occasionally visit bird feeders. Nesting occurs annually from May to September where they normally raise one brood. The nesting cavity located ve to 80 feet above ground takes six to 17 days to excavate. Both parents incubate the four to seven white eggs, which hatch in 12 to 14 days. The young stay in the cavity, depending on their parents for food, until they edge at about 25 days of age.

Margaret England Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 7.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.53/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.70/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices Sunday were 27.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 33.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 15.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “With Memorial Day a week away, it’s time to put to bed an old myth that gasoline prices rise ahead of a major holiday,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Average gasoline prices will likely continue to decline in the days ahead of Memorial Day, but folks will still say come next year that prices went up over the weekend this year. It’s a sign of how sensitive motorists become to gasoline prices around the holidays, nothing more, and most of the time, the myth isn’t true. This year will be one of those yearsunless you’re on the West Coast, prices have been slowly coming down,” DeHaan said.

Before the FLW Tour on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard began this w eek, National Guard pro Scott Martin of Clewiston, Fla., dedicated his efforts to his wife, who has been a vital part of his support over the course of his career. Martin, the reigning Forrest Wood Cup champion, led the rst three days of the event and on Sunday he got to dedicate a victory to her, as well. A t the end of the day, Martin's ve bass worth 13 pounds, 7 ounces gave him a total four-day weight of 66 pounds, 6 ounces just 3 ounces heavier than second place as well as a championship trophy and $126,000. The win boosted Martin's career winnings past the $2 million mark. Martin's teammate, National Guard pro Justin Lucas of Guntersville, Ala., narrowly missed earning his rst Tour win and posted a total weight of 66 pounds, 3 ounces to claim second place. Lucas won $34,276 for his efforts. "Every win is just so special, but this one here is unbelievable," said Martin, who now has ve Tour-level victories. "I dedicated it to my wife earlier in the week before practice started and was able to pull it off. Usually when you say you're going to do something like that you kind of jinx y ourself, so this is one of the most proud (wins) I've ever had." Although he led the entire tournament, Martin's lead shrank more and more each day. On Sunday Martin admitted he didn't think he was going to win the tournament. "I pretty much said I wasn't going to win," Martin said. "I thought somebody was going to bring in a 17or 18-pound bag and edge me out. But God is good. "When I got in and saw some of the weights starting to hit the scale I thought, Man, I might have a shot at this thing.'" Martin said he shed excruciatingly slowly and picked apart grass beds with a Bruiser Baits paddle tail worm. He said he wouldn't catch a sh for 20 minutes and then he would catch one that w ould allow him to replace his smallest sh in his limit and increase his weight by 4 or 5 ounces. Then he would repeat the process. "You feel like a caged animal," Martin said. "Because you're sitting in this one little spot ipping into every little hole you can. "I just stayed con dent out there," Martin said. "(David) Dudley kind of touched on it a little bit. It's not the lures you throw. A lot of times it's not even the exact spot you're shing. It's con dence that wins tournaments, and I had a lot of it this week. It really paid off bigtime. The winning lure really was con dence." The remaining top 10 pros nished the tournament in: 3rd: Castrol pro David Dudley, Lynchburg, Va., 20 bass, 65-7, $28,943 4th: M&Ms pro Jim Moynagh, Carver, Minn., 20 bass, 64-7, $24,610 5th: Colby Schrumpf, Highland, Ill., 20 bass, 63-12, $19,276 6th: Chevy pro Bryan Thrift, Shelby, N.C., 20 bass, 62-8, $16,376 7th: Clark Wendlandt, Leander, Texas, 20 bass, 61-11, $15,410 8th: Kellogg's Frosted Flakes pro Dave Lefebre, Erie, Pa., 20 bass, 61-10, $14,443 9th: Clifford Pirch, Payson, Ariz., 20 bass, 6110, $13,476 10th: EverStart pro Ron Shuf eld, Bismarck, Ark., 20 bass, 61-4, $12,510 Overall there were 50 bass weighing 141 pounds, 4 ounces caught by pros Sunday. The catch included 10 ve-bass limits. Chris Dillow of Waynesboro, Va., won the co-angler division and $20,000 Saturday with a three-day total of 15 bass weighing 47 pounds, 3 ounces followed by Greg Knick of Ansonia, Ohio, in second place with 15 bass weighing 46-11 worth $7,238. In FLW Tour Major tournaments, pros and co-anglers are competing for valuable points that could help them qualify for the 2012 Forrest Wood Cup presented by Walmart, the world championship of bass shing. The top 35 pro and co-anglers in the point standings from the six FLW Tour Major tournaments will qualify. The Tour stop on the Potomac River presented by the National Guard was hosted by National Harbor and Prince George's County, Maryland, and was the fth of 10 Walmart FLW Tour tournaments of the 2012 season. The Walmart FLW Tour on Kentucky Lake presented by OFF! will be the next tournament and will be held June 7-10 in Murray, Ky.

By Pat Dobbins, administratorHendry/Glades Dept. of Health The week of May 21–27, has been designated as National Recreational Water Illness Prevention Week. The goal is to highlight the importance of healthy swimming behaviors in preventing recreational water illnesses (RWIs). RWIs are caused by germs spread by swallowing, breathing in contaminated mists or aerosols, or having contact with contaminated water in swimming pools, hot tubs, water parks, water play areas, interactive fountains, lakes, rivers, or oceans. RWIs can also be caused by chemicals in the water or chemicals that evaporate from the water and cause indoor air-quality problems. Diarrhea is the most common RWI, and it is often caused by germs like Crypto (short for Cryptosporidium), Giardia, norovirus, Shigella, and E. coli. Children, pregnant women, and people with weakened immune systems are most at risk for RWIs. Speci c actions you can take to promote healthy swimming include: 1. Do not swim when you have diarrhea. 2. Do not swallow pool water or get pool water in your mouth. 3. Shower before swimming (children too!). 4. Wash your hands after using the toilet or changing diapers. 5. Take children on bathroom breaks or change diapers often. 6. Change children’s diapers in a bathroom, not at poolside. Recreational water activities are an important part of summer fun, exercise and leisure. To make this summer a healthier experience, the Hendry and Glades Count y Health Departments urge swimmers to continue their swimming activities, but keep in mind healthy swimming behaviors to reduce the risk of recreational water illnesses. Additional information about Recreational Water Illness Prevention Week 2012 can be found at: http://www.cdc.gov/healthyswimming / rwi_prevention_week.htm.

The United Way of Hendry & Glades held its annual Swing Into Spring event recently at the RiverBend Motorcoach Resort. Over 210 people attended the dinner and auction, raising over $13,600 for the United Way and its partner agencies in Hendry and Glades Counties. The event was sponsored by the LaBelle Kiwanis, Marti and John Cowen, Child Care of Southwest Florida, Family Eye Care, LaBelle Florist and Osterhout and McKinney, PA. Phil Pelletier, Hendry County Property Appraiser, acted as the Master of Ceremonies. The event was highlighted by games and a silent auction which included items such as gift certi cates to local restaurants and hotels, and gift baskets of food and ne wine. The event committee was chaired by J ulie Osterhout Boardman who was very pleased with the turn-out at the fundraiser. “I would like to thank the generous organizations and individuals who have contributed to the success of Swing Into Spring. This event begins our fundraising efforts for the year, and it is a very important part of helping us reach the campaign goal for our United Way,” said Osterhout-Boardman. She added, “Money raised in the campaign supports thirty-four local United Way agency partners. Our friends and neighbors who are in need bene t from the money raised at the event.” The local network of thirty-four United Way partner agencies and programs will receive funds from the 2012-2013 United Way of Hendry & Glades fundraising campaign. These agencies include: The Salvation Army, Harry Chapin Food Bank, the Children’s Advocacy Center, Child Care of Southwest Florida, Healthy Families, United Way 211 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. The event and campaign also support the three United Way Neighborhood Houses in LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore Haven which make agency services available close to home for those in need. 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 need help.

Mr. Taylor refers to County Commissioner Donna Storter Long as “the enemy.” And, on at least one occasion, allegedly referred to Commissioner Long in a vulgar and profane manner. “I’ve noticed it from day one. He’s got a certain few he just dislikes and he just harasses these people constantly,” said Mr. Cline, a maintenance technician, in a previous interview. Mr. Cline has worked for the county the last ve years. In her complaint, Ms. Anascavage accused the county manager of unprofessional and inappropriate conduct. “One more than one occasion the county manager has shared with me war stories and how he used intimidation to gain information that was needed,” wrote Ms. Anascavage in her grievance. “I am fearful of losing my job and I am fearful of the future retaliation that I will receive.” Ms. Anascavage is the current 9-1-1 coordinator for Glades County. Mr. Taylor was initially hired by Glades County on an interim basis on July 12, 2005. He was then hired on a full-time basis on Aug. 8, 2005. After serving in the military for 28 years, Mr. Taylor’s became the county manager for Jackson County on Dec. 1, 1996. He served in that capacity for a little more than six years before he was terminated. Mr. Cline has also led a grievance against deputy county manager Larry Hilton. However, due to the nature of that complaint it has yet to be released. COUNTYContinued From Page 1 The following individuals were arrested on felony or driving under the in uence (DUI) charges by the Glades County Sheriff's Of ce (GCSO), the Seminole Police Department (SPD), the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) or the Department of Corrections (DOC).  Joseph Francis Knotek, 46, Seminole St., LaBelle, was arrested May 15 by the GCSO on Orange County warrants charging him with failure to appear.

A rrest Report 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 24, 2012 Protecting this land was made possible through the cooperative efforts of several partners including The Nature Conservancy (TNC), the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), the Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), The National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), Walmart, the U.S. A rmy Corps of Engineers and others. A portion of the protected land will continue in the rich ranching heritage of South Florida and another portion will have its wetlands restored to enhance wildlife habitat. The purchase was covered by approximately $2 million from TNC in private philanthropy, and $1.5 million each from the USFWS and the private entity that purchased the property encumbered by conservation easements. NRCS provided $1.5 million to purchase a conservation easement on 718 acres of the property. Another $200,000 was provided through Acres for America, a partnership between the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and Walmart. TNC collected the funding from the various sources and used those funds to buy the property. TNC also managed the transaction to closing and transferred the property to a private entity subject to a Wetland Reserve Program easement held by NRCS and conservation easements reserved by TNC over the balance of the property. The new owner, Lone Ranger LLC, will utilize the property in accordance with the conservation easements secured in the transaction. The Nature Conservancy and NRCS will manage the easements. This acquisition will encourage the natural recovery of the Florida panther population by providing habitat where animals can den and stalk prey, and migrate from southern Florida to areas north of the river. Other species will bene t as well. Through the Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) conservation easement, NRCS purchased the development rights to the property, saving the land from any future urban development. Completion of the restoration project will bring back the natural functions of the wetland to recharge groundwater, reduce ooding and protect biological diversity. The WRP program provides advice and funding to help landowners restore wetlands, establish long-term conservation actions and improve wildlife habitat on the land. In addition to providing funds through the Recovery Land Acquisition Program, the USFWS provided technical assistance regarding the Florida panther and other federally listed species. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers helped facilitate this transaction by relocating two 50-acre disposal easements along the waterfront of the American Prime property.

By Pat Dobbins, administratorHendry/Glades Dept. of Health All women who are thinking about getting pregnant in the next 3-4 months should have a sit-down session with their healthcare provider for pre-conceptual counseling (counseling and evaluation of important issues and risk factors pertinent to all women who want to get pregnant, including special medical, surgical, gynecologic, obstetrical, and age-related history). Planning a pregnancy gives you and your baby a healthy start. All women of child-bearing years should be pre-screened for general health and possible risk factors before attempting to become pregnant. With a small amount of prepregnancy planning, many potential complications in pregnancy can be avoided. Women should not smoke, or should quit smoking prior to conception. There is very strong evidence that smoking tobacco is associated with many complications in pregnancy. Additionally, women should avoid alcohol and drugs because they can cause birth defects in a fetus. Women should also take Folic Acid (400 mg) once a day for about three months prior to getting pregnant. Folic acid has been shown to reduce the development of defects of the spine such as spina bi da and anencephaly. Eating dark green vegetables and beans are also good sources of essential vitamins needed for a healthy pregnancy. Pre-conceptual counseling can also be for males. Even though the paternal effects of alcohol, smoking and drugs have not been extensively studied in men, the most popular belief is that men play a ke y role in the health of a developing fetus. Males and females should as k themselves: "Am I ready to be a parent? Can I emotionally, physically, psychologically and economicall y provide for another human being?" Meeting with a healthcare provider prior to pregnancy allows for screening of risk factors, lifestyle modi cations, and immunization. Please remember: Both parents are responsible for the health o f their baby! Pre-conceptual counseling is important Special to the Glades Democrat Class of 2012 students together since kindergartenMegan Platt, Dustin Chapman, Mytae Cisenerios, Warner Ward are seniors who attended school together K-12 and have shown not only academic achievements but school spirit and involvement throughout the years.
