Two county employees had led grievances against Mr. Taylor in April that claimed he would bully employees into getting what he wanted and would use profane language. After interviewing 16 county employees in his investigation into the complaints, Orlando attorney Mark Levitt concluded Mr. Taylor had not violated and state or federal law. Mr. Levitt told the board at its May 29 meeting it was also his determination that Mr. Taylor had also not violated Glades County personnel policy. Mr. Levitt did tell the board that Mr. Taylor admitted to cursing, but added that "it's up Commission takes no action on grievances Special to the Glades County Democrat On March 9, 1981 the body of a female in her late teens to early twenties was found in a roadside ditch on Hwy. 721 near Shawnee Farms in Glades County. The death was ruled a homicide by the Medical Examiner's Of ce. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head. The victim was never identi ed and the investigation went cold. In 2008 Detective Sergeant Don Salo and the Glades County Victims Advocate Summer Odom reopened the case in attempts to get the victim identi ed. Unfortunately there wasn't much information regarding the investigation and attempts to get the girl identi ed back then were unsuccessful. Since reopening the case, Det. Sgt. Salo has entered the limited information available along with a composite drawing of the victim on the internet using the Doe Network which is a missing and unidenti ed data base. In attempts to help further identify this person, Detective Sgt. Salo, with Bret Harding from the Medical Examiner's Of ce in Fort Myers obtained a Court Order to exhume the remains of Jane Doe from the Ortona Cemetery to utilize technolog y that was not available in the early 80s to try to identify the woman. The femur has been sent to the Universit y of Texas to extract DNA and the skull will be reconstructed by an expert to better depict what the victim looked like. This information will then be distributed to law enforcement dat a New techology used to reopen 1981 murder case This artist’s rendering of the ‘Jane Doe’ was made in 1981.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 BY GABE MARGASAK SFWMDWith the start of South Florida’s wet season, rainfall alone is beginning to quench the needs of most lawns and landscapes. This means irrigation system timers at homes and businesses in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) can be dialed back to fewer days, shorter watering times or shut off altogether to conserve water for the future. Irrigation system timers are often set for the dry winter months and forgotten, leading to sprinkling even during typical wet-season downpours. During an average wet season, from June through October, many lawns receive what they require and don’t need supplemental irrigation at all, according to the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS). Adjusting timers can make a difference because outdoor irrigation accounts for up to 50 percent of water use in South Florida, and up to 50 percent of the water applied to lawns is lost to evapotranspiration. Installing rain sensors or soil moisture sensors to automatically shut off an irrigation system when enough rain has fallen and checking the pipes and sprinkler heads for leaks are also key conservation tools. In addition, residents can conserve water and still enjoy a tropical landscape by following Florida-Friendly Landscaping principles. These include planting the right plant in the right place, utilizing mulch, and reducing storm water runoff. More information is available at www. oridayards.org. Because water conservation offers signi cant bene ts, the SFWMD Governing Board in September 2008 approved a Comprehensive Water Conservation Program to encourage more responsible use of water resources throughout South Florida. Numerous stakeholders worked with the District to de ne speci c regulatory, voluntary, and incentive-based programs and in-depth education and marketing efforts that help to foster a year-round conservation ethic. Simple water conservation practices include: Washing only full loads of clothes and dishes; Replacing aerators in kitchen and bathroom sinks with models rated for 1.5 gallons per minute or less; Installing lowow appliances, such as a dishwasher or energy-ef cient washing machine; Installing lowow water xtures, such as shower heads with the WaterSense logo. While reducing irrigation time during the wet season is encouraged, residents and businesses remain under the District’s Year-Round Landscape Irrigation Rule that limits residential and business landscape irrigation to two or three days per week based on location. To determine watering days and times in your area, contact your local government or visit www.sfwmd.gov/2days. Wet Season Start: It’s Time to Reset Irrigation Timers SUBMITTED PHOTO

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 Florida Governor Rick Scott proclaimed May 20-26, as Florida Water Reuse Week to bring awareness of the importance of water reuse to meeting Florida’s future water supply needs. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection urges Florida’s residents and businesses to celebrate Water Reuse Week to learn more about how easy it is to reuse water on a daily basis. “DEP is committed to working with the Florida’s water management districts, communities and businesses to ensure the environment is protected and future water supply needs are met,” said Greg Munson, DEP Deputy Secretary for Water Policy and Ecosystem Restoration. “DEP strives to get the water right and reuse efforts can make a positive impact to both water supply and protecting our natural resources.” Leading the nation in water reuse, the state of Florida reuses more than 660 million gallons of reclaimed water each day to conserve freshwater supplies and replenish rivers, streams, lakes and the aquifers. Reclaimed water is often seen in landscaping, agriculture and golf courses, the use of which drastically cuts down on fresh water use. Florida uses reclaimed water to irrigate more than 280,000 residences, 500 golf courses and hundreds more parks and schools. Florida residents use more than 6 billion gallons of fresh water daily, while producing billions of gallons of wastewater through daily activities such as showers, laundry and dishwashing. With simple actions to reuse water, Floridians can augment Florida’s water resources and allow traditional sources of fresh water to be conserved. Saving water also translates to saving money on lower utility bills. During Water Reuse Week and throughout the year, DEP also encourages residents to undertake water reuse and conservation practices to help to ensure safe, clean, and sustainable water resources: Collect rain water in buckets during storms which can be reused for irrigating yards, cleaning driveways and toilet ushing. Before emptying a pet’s drinking bowl, use the un nished or old water to water plants. Plant a rain garden that will capture excess stormwater runoff, limit topsoil erosion, reduce ooding, and enhance yard beauty. Take excess water from a bath or from washing dishes and put into the toilet for ushing. Wash fruits and vegetables in a pan, not under a running faucet, and reuse that water for gardening. Use a commercial car wash that recycles water. For more water reuse tips, such as how to plant a rain garden or build a rain barrel please visit www.protectingourwater.org. Florida Celebrates Water Reuse Week SUBMITTED PHOTOUsing rain collection barrels can help water gardens, plants and owers and serve as an easy way for Floridians to reuse water.

Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 31, 2012 By Pat DobbinsHendry/Glades Health Department Some wild animals can look very cute and if an animal is sick or injured, your rst instinct might be to try to help it. Please avoid contact with any wild or stray animals to protect you and your family from the risk of rabies exposure. In our area, raccoons, bats, and foxes are the animals most frequently diagnosed with rabies. Other animals that are at high risk for rabies can include skunks, fox, otters, bobcats, and let’s not forget the stray or unvaccinated cats, dogs, and ferrets. In prior years, Hendry and Glades Counties have received reports of rabid animals. “Rabies can be a potentially fatal disease. It is important not to handle wild animals, be aware of unusual acting animals, and keep pets vaccinated against rabies,” said Brian Prowant, Environmental Health Director of the Hendry & Glades Counties Health Departments. It’s important to remember that you can get exposed to rabies in several ways, not just from an animal bite. Rabies is transmitted through exposure to the saliva and nervous tissue from a rabid animal through a bite, scratch, or contact with mucous membranes such as the eyes, nose, or mouth. Hendry and Glades County Health Departments work with Animal Control in the Cities of LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore Haven in responding to incidents of animal bites. When deemed medically necessary, suspected animals are quarantined and can be tested for rabies through the Department of Health state laboratory. The following are steps you can take to protect yourself and your loved ones against rabies:  Keep rabies vaccinations up to date for all pets.  Spay or neuter your pets to help reduce the number of unwanted pets that may not be properly cared for or regularly vaccinated.  Do not handle, feed, or unintentionally attract wild animals with open garbage cans or litter.  Teach children never to handle unfamiliar animals, wild or domestic, even if they appear friendly and never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home.  Prevent bats from entering living quarters or occupied spaces in homes, churches, schools, and other similar areas, where they might come in contact with people and pets.  Call your local animal control agency to remove any stray animals from your neighborhood. Animals that are acting unusual or that seem sickly should be reported to Animal Control for handling. Anyone who is bitten or scratched by wild animals or strays should report the incident to their health care provider, as well as Animal Control and the local health department. Please contact the Hendry or Glades County Health Departments: LaBelle 863-674-4047 ext.152, Clewiston 863-902-4224 ext. 504, and Moore Haven 863-946-0707 ext. 200 Please keep your pets under direct supervision so they do not come in contact with wild animals. If your pet is bitten by a wild animal, seek veterinary assistance for the animal immediately and contact Animal Control: City of LaBelle 863-674-338, City of Clewiston 863-983-1457, Moore Haven 863946-6000. Protect your family from risk of rabies exposure The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District has started releasing small amounts of water from Lake Okeechobee in a continued effort to reduce salt-water content in the Caloosahatchee Estuary. The new water release began on Saturday, May 26. The Corps is making the release in a pulse-like manner to mimic a rainfall event, similar to releases that began in December, 2011, and ended in March, 2012. The target ow to the Caloosahatchee Estuary for this release is an average of 300 cubic feet per second (cfs) over a 10-day period, as measured at W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79) east of Fort Myers. “Additional rai nfall has returned tributary hydrologic conditions to normal,” said John Kilpatrick, Chief of the Jacksonville District’s Multi-Project Branch, which has oversight of water management at the lake, “the rain, combined with other factors outlined in the 2010 Adaptive Protocols, allows the Corps to undertake this release in order to provide environmental bene ts to the estuary.” Today, the lake stage is 11.71 feet. The lake is currently within the Bene cial Use Sub band of the 2008 Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (2008 LORS). The Corps and partner agencies will continue to closely monitor and assess system conditions, and may decrease releases if local basin runoff contributes to ows.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonWhat large black woodpecker the size of a crow has bold white stripes down the neck and a aming-red triangular crest? The correct answer is Pileated Woodpecker. This bird species lives and breeds in most of Florida. They are often heard whacking at dead trees or fallen logs in search of food. Pileated Woodpeckers have long barbed tongues that can be more than an inch long which they use to extract woodboring beetle larv ae, ants, termites, or other insects that are deep in wood. Nuts and fruit as well as bird seed or suet found in backyard feeders are often part of their diet. These birds have a large body, skinny tail, and long neck. Adult males have a red stripe on their cheek. Their white underwings and white crescents on the wings can be seen when they are in ight. Their call is a short loud clear "wuk wuk" or "cuk cuk" sound. The oldest known Pileated Woodpecker was 12 years and 11 months old. Pileated Woodpeckers have long chisel-like bills about the length of their heads. When hammering in soft wood with their beaks, they will pull their neck back while using their feet to increase the strength of powerful blows they make in the soft wood. Both sexes drum on trees. Males will drum in late winter to establish or defend their territory. Both sexes drum during courtship, to summon a mate from a distance, or when an intruder is near the nest. Pairs stay in the same territory year-round and form permanent bonds. When one dies the survivor might nd a new mate. The pair will make the nest cavity. The male does most of the work excavating the cavity up high in a dead tree or utility pole, but the female will help. The entrance is oblong instead of round like most woodpecker holes. They will line the nest with leftover wood chips. Females will lay three to ve white eggs between mid-March and mid-May which are incubated for 14 to 18 days. The young leave the nest cavity when they are 24 to 28 days old. For an incredible close video of the Pileated Woodpecker go to Cornell's "All About Birds Guide" at www.allaboutbirds.org/guide.

Also, he continued, there were instances where Mr. Cline did not have direct knowledge what had happened. A second complaint was led by Terrellynn A. Anascavage, the 9-1-1 coordinator for Glades County. Mr. Levitt also stated that Glades County, like many political organizations, is not immune from workplace gossip. “However, rumor and gossip is hearsay and is not a substitute for direct evidence and is not reliable in reaching any factual conclusion,” stated Mr. Levitt. After the meeting, Mr. Cline said he was not surprised that no action was taken. “It went exactly the way I expected,” he said, adding that ling the complaint was the right thing to do. Mr. Taylor declined comment. Mr. Levitt did substantiate that the county manager referred to Commissioner Donna Storter Long as “the enemy” and would also accuse county employees of “fraternizing with the enemy.” In his address to the board, Mr. Cline said since he led his grievance another county employee has threatened his life. In an interview, Mr. Cline said the employee told him “I want to stab you.” It’s not clear at this time if Mr. Cline, a maintenance technician with the county, has led a report with law enforcement about that alleged threat. Mr. Cline also stated that Mr. Taylor had been red from his position at county manager for Jackson County amid similar complaints. Former Jackson County commissioner Paul Dudley, who was one of the commissioners that voted to re Mr. Taylor, declined to comment. Current commissioner, Willie Spires, simply said that Mr. Taylor was “terminated without cause.” “We really didn’t use a reason,” he said in a telephone interview. K.C. ‘Butch’ Jones, chairman of the Glades County commission, said Tuesday he was ready to see this matter concluded. “This has literally eaten my lunch,” he said. COUNTYContinued From Page 1 Panthers have an increasingly dif cult time in their native habitat. More and more development more people, more vehicles, less open space, less natural prey available. Wildlife conservationists are rejoicing after securing 1,278 acres that will help the native Florida cat to thrive. Several conservation groups, including The Nature Conservancy, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Natural Resources Conservation Serv ice, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, W al-Mart and the US Army Corps of Engineers came together and snatched the property from imminent foreclosure on May 22. The property, which lies on the south side of the Caloosahatchee River had been owned by American Prime and was earmarked for development until the economy lagged. Private property just east of Port LaBelle, owner Lone Ranger LLC, will continue to use it as a working cattle ranch. The only difference is that The Nature Conservancy and the Natural Resources Conservation Service will manage wildlife easements on the property. Ken Warren of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, said the largest of the easements created is about 700 acres, which will be restored as wetlands by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, a division of the USDA. He said although the land will remain a ranch with the landowner managing it as he sees t its role as a natural preserve should not present any con icts. Cattle and panthers have been coexisting in Florida for over a century. Mr. Warren noted that panther range shrunk from the entire southeastern US down to just South Florida. Now, panthers have only portions of Southwest Florida from the Everglades to the Caloosahatchee River as their territory. He noted that there is documented evidence this parcel is used as a panther migration corridor. However, there is no documented breeding panther population north of the river. Protected Florida Panther habitat area increased

Breeding season for bears runs from June to July, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is reminding homeowners that bears are moving around, foraging for food and looking for mates. According to FWC bear management program coordinator Dave Telesco, the agency is seeing an increase in calls about bears in neighborhoods around the state. The animals are lured into neighborhoods to feast on unsecured trash. His best advice: Do not feed the bears. It is also illegal to feed bears in Florida. “Problems arise when bears have access to people-related food sources such as pet foods, garbage, barbecue grills, birdseed or livestock feed,” Telesco said. “Bears learn v ery quickly to associate people with food, and this puts the animals at increased risk of illegal kills or crossing highways and getting hit by vehicles.” Black bears normally are too shy to risk contact with humans, but their strong food drive can overwhelm these instincts. Residents can help these bears “move on,” so they don’t cause a con ict. “If people remove the attractants, the bears will stay where we want them to stay – in wooded areas – and not enter urban and suburban neighborhoods,” Telesco said. Properly storing and securing garbage is a proven method of discouraging bears. Barbecue grills should be stored in a secure place, such as a garage or a sturdy shed w hen they are not in use (typically evenings). Keep garbage cans secure and only place them outside on the morning of pickup, rather than the night before. People can encourage their neighbors, community or local government to use bear-resistant trash containers or dumpsters. To nd out where to get them, go to MyFWC.com/Bears and select “Brochures & Other Materials.” “Another way people can help is to feed pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding,” Telesco said. “Relocating bears is not always the best option,” Telesco explained. “Most bears do not stay where we put them, and more than half of the bears we move just end up causing con icts again in a new location.” “If you see a black bear, remain calm. Don’t run. Walk calmly toward a building or vehicle and get inside,” Telesco said. “If y ou have children or pets, bring them inside. Once you are in a secure location, encourage the bear to leave by banging pots and pans, blowing a car or air horn or whistle. The more stressful a bear’s encounter with y ou, the less likely it is to come back.” If a bear is in a tree, leave it alone. Remove people and dogs from the area. The bear usually will come down and leave when it feels safe, which is typically after dark. If the bear is threatening the safety of humans, pets or livestock or is causing property damage, report it to the FWC at 888-404FWCC (3922). Residents can nd out more about living w ith black bears at MyFWC.com/Bear.Frequently asked questions about bearsQuestion: How many bears are there in Florida? Answer: The best scienti cally valid population estimates total 2,500 to 3,000 bears statewide. Bears currently live in eight relatively isolated areas. While some populations appear to be doing well, others are still recovering. About 175 black bears live in Glades and Highlands Counties. Question: What do I do if I see a bear? Answer: If you encounter a bear at close range, remain standing upright, back up slowly and speak to the bear in a calm, assertive voice. Do NOT feed or intentionally attract bears. If a bear eats something on your property, take note of what it is and secure it once the bear leaves. NEVER approach or surprise a bear. If you see a bear from a distance, enjoy the experience, but do not move toward the bear. If you are close, do not make any sudden or abrupt movements. Back away slowly and be sure the bear has an obvious escape route. If you are in your yard,  Make sure you are in a safe area and that the bear has a clear escape route. Then, make noise or bang pots and pans to scare the bear away.  Do NOT turn your back, play dead, climb a tree or run. Back away slowly into the house or a secure area.  Avoid direct eye contact. Bears and many other animals may view this as aggressive behavior.  Report any bear that is threatening the safety of humans, pets or livestock to the FWC’s Wildlife Alert hotline, 888-404FWCC(3922) (see the “contact us” page). Cell phone users can call *FWC or #FWC. Question: Are black bears fast runners or good climbers? Answer: Absolutely! Bears can run up to 35 mph and climb 100 feet up a tree in 30 seconds! Do NOT run or climb a tree when you encounter a bear. Don’t run. Running triggers a chase instinct in many animals, including bears. You can’t outrun a bear. Don’t climb a tree. Bears are excellent tree climbers. Mother black bears often send their cubs up a tree when they sense danger. You don’t want to end up in a tree with a couple of cubs above you and a mother bear below you! If a bear chases you, you’ll just end up fending off a bear in a tree rather than on the ground. Don’t play dead or turn your back on the bear. Back away slowly, make sure the bear has a clear escape route. Stop and hold your ground if your movement away seems to irritate instead of calm the bear. If bears feel threatened, they may clack their teeth together, moan, blow, huff or paw the ground. The bear is showing you that it is as uncomfortable with the situation as you are. These are not indications of aggressive intent or an imminent attack. Truly predatory or aggressive black bears are eerily silent. FWC to area residents: Try to be ‘bear aware’

This year, start and end the week's festivities by taking advantage of one of Florida's license-free shing days. Saltwater recreational anglers can sh without a license on June 2 and freshwater recreational shers on June 9. There couldn't be a better time to get out on the water and try your hand at some of Florida's ne shing on these two Saturdays. Thirty-four states, including Florida and Georgia, will have license-free shing days during the J une 2 through June 10 National Fishing and Boating Week, a celebration of shing and boating. "Florida's license-free shing days are an excellent opportunity to share the fun, excitement and togetherness of a shing trip with the entire family. This also is a great time for experienced anglers to introduce friends to the sport, even if they don't have a shing license," said Nick Wiley, FWC executive director. "By having these events on weekends, we hope Florida residents and visitors will experience the joy of saltwater and freshwater shing. We expect many will discover a healthy sport they can enjoy for a lifetime." Saltwater anglers can try their hand at catching a red snapper, which will be open for harvest in Gulf and Atlantic state waters and Gulf federal waters on the June 2, saltwater license-free shing day. Want to stick a little closer to shore? Try your hand at near-shore species such as spotted seatrout or red drum. Now that school is out or almost out and people are in vacation mode, anglers will nd June a great time to introduce a child to shing or encourage a friend who hasn't been shing for a while to get on the water. Almost everyone in Florida is within 45 minutes of a freshwater shing hole. Dawn or dusk may be your best shing times, but if you go midday, seek out the shadows around piers or fallen trees, or look for bass and bream under oating vegetation mats and in other shaded areas to enhance your success. Fishing is a low-cost, wholesome form of entertainment, which is why the FWC offers four days when a recreational shing license is not needed. Can't make the June 2 or June 9 licensefree shing days? The FWC also made Sept. 1 a license-free saltwater shing day, which not only falls on a holiday weekend, but is during the popular bay scallop and spiny lobster seasons. Each year, the rst Saturday in April and second Saturday in June will be license-free freshwater shing days. The state's abundant resources, coupled with responsible freshwater and saltwater sh management, are why Florida is known as the "Fishing Capital of the World." All other bag limit, season and size restrictions apply on these dates. To make your shing day successful, chec k out MyFWC.com/Fishing for shing tips, locations and rules.
