By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County Democrat The State of Florida plans to build roads through wetlands and dump 50 million pounds of sand into Fisheating Creek to permanently block the public navigation channel. David Guest, Earthjustice attorney who is representing Save Our Creeks to try to stop this destruction, summarized this illegal action by stating that the State of Florida will be spending our tax dollars, illegally, to carry out their plan to stop the public from using a public waterway. Save Our Creeks (SOC) was organized in 1989 in an effort to save Fisheating Creek from being closed to the public. The case became a turning point that resulted in the preservation of 18,000 acres surrounding a naturally beautiful cypress-lined creek winding 52 miles from its headwaters in Highlands County through Glades County all the way to its mouth on Lake Okeechobee. Protective measures that would protect other waterways in Florida were put into place. To this day Fisheating Creek, reSave Our Creek ghting plan to back ll channelSee SOS Page 8 By Katrina ElskenSpecial to the Glades County Democrat The Army Corps of Engineers attempt to balance the many demands on the water in Lake Okeechobee has landed them in court. On behalf of Florida Wildlife Federation, Conservancy of Southwest Florida and the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida, Earthjustice led the lawsuit on Jul y 23 in federal court against the U.S. Arm y Corps of Engineers claiming the agency is repeatedly violating water protection laws in Southwest Floridas Caloosahatchee River. A toxic algae outbreak on southwest Floridas Caloosahatchee River in June 2011, turned the water a freakish green, killed sh and released a nauseating stench for weeks, according to Earthjustice. The Caloosahatchee River, of cially designated as a public drinking water source, has been covered with slimy green algae outbreaks eight of the past 11 years, and an outbreak slimed the river just last week, according to Earthjustice. The algae releases a nauseating smell, gives people respiratory problems, causes massive sh kills and harms many wild species. The Glades, Hendry and Lee County public health departments have had to issue multiple public health warnings saying that neither people nor animals should come into contact with the water, drink it, or eat the sh.

In the United States they are most commonly found in the eastern United States, but some breed in western states. They often winter in Florida, Texas, and California south to northern South America. These small secretive wading birds are more often heard than seen. In South Florida they may raise up to two broods of young between March and August. This lightweight birds underparts and throat are white with light brown streaks. Their faces and the sides of their necks are orange to brown. They will stretch their long neck w ith their bill pointing upward when alarmed and stand quietly in the cattails or reeds. While in the frozen position, they will sometimes sway in order to resemble wind-blown marsh vegetation. Adult males have a greenish black crown and back, but the females crown and back are purple to dark brown. Their common call is loud harsh rick-rick-rick-rick, but they also make a short at kuk or gik sound while in ight. Their song is a low cooing descending coo-coo-coo. Least Bittern prefer living in freshwater or brackish marshes with tall emergent vegetation. They climb through marsh plants capturing small sh and insects with quick jabs of their bill. Nesting pairs build a well-concealed platform of dried plants in dense cattails or rushes about one foot above the water. The female will lay four to ve pale blue or green eggs which are incubated by both parents for 17 to 18 days. The young can leave the nest in ve to 14 days but edge when they are 25 days old. During the Breeding Bird Atlas 1 Survey there were only a few con rmed reports of Lease Bittern breeding in inland Florida west of Lake Okeechobee. One con rmed report of young birds with adults was submitted for Hendry County last month. The Breeding Bird Atlas Survey (20122016) is underway with 90 percent of survey conducted May through July. To help document the breeding birds or to participate in a morning, contact Margaret England.

In just three and a half years, we have made dozens of major, positive accomplishments and additions that better our agency. Because of these changes, Hendry County is a safer place to live. Below are just a few accomplishments that I would like to highlight. I have never raised the budget. In fact, I have been able to absorb within the budget approximately $3,000,000 in federal mandates and cost increases outside my control. Added ten deputies to the road to better serve the outlying communities such as Montura, Pioneer and Felda. Our narcotics arrests have doubled Deputies self initiated calls for service have over doubled, deputies are now proactive instead of reactive. Our overall crime rate is down. In my brochure that you either have or will be receiving, you will see all the changes we have made. We have come far but Im not satisfied yet. Every day we find ways to better our community. Please allow me to continue to be your Sheriff for a second term. Hendry County deserves some stability in the office of Sheriff. I ask for your vote on August 14th.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 26, 2012 to drink, even after extensive treatment, the complaint continued. The suit was led against the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, claiming the Corps has caused the Caloosahatchee's problems by cutting off the river's water supply. The Corps operates three water control structures which regulate the ow of water from Lake Okeechobee to the Caloosahatchee estuary at the Gulf of Mexico. "Instead of providing the Caloosahatchee w ith the ow it needs to stay healthy, the Corps diverts water to irrigate 500,000 acres of sugar cane elds south of Lake Okeechobee. The river is too often left stagnant and polluted," stated an Earthjustice press release issued Monday. The problems in recent years are a result of decades of man-made changes to the natural ow of water, the many demands on Lake Okeechobee's resources and, most recently, lack of rainfall, according to John Campbell, public affairs specialist with the A rmy Corps of Engineers. The Corps releases water from Lake Okeechobee into the Caloosahatchee River based on the Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (LORS) which was implemented in 2008. The goal is to manage the lake between a low of 12.5 feet and a high of 15.5 feet. This is considered a safe range for the Herbert Hoover Dike, according to the Corps. Ironically, the primary problem at the time the current LORS was originally drafted was that storms like Hurricanes Francis and Jeanne and Tropical Storm Fay dumped so much rain that there was concern about the lake rising past the point that it could endanger the integrity of the dike. In 2005, extremely heavy rains during the wet season raised lake levels to the point that water managers needed to release large amounts of water down the Caloosahatchee and the St. Lucie Canal for ood control. The release of this water was blamed for damage to the coastal estuaries. In 2006, "Stop the Muck" protests were held at meetings in Lee County. The "muck" referred to the large releases of nutrient-rich water from Lake Okeechobee. In 2008, Tropical Storm Fay, considered a "100 year storm" raised the lake level by 4 feet in a matter of days as rainfall from the Kissimmee River Valley drained south into Lake Okeechobee. "We had a lot of input to the LORS plans, including input from the Conservancy of Southwest Florida," said Mr. Campbell. "We have been executing the plan," he added. He said the plan is a compromise which often draws criticism from many of the interested parties. "It involves a lot of parties with divergent interests and was the best compromise we could nd at the time so that everyone felt their needs were being addressed," Mr. Campbell explained. "If this group wants to bring suit, we'll let that action speak for itself." Mr. Campbell said the LORS is a complex balancing act and they are aware that not everyone is happy. "All releases we make from the lake into the Caloosahatchee River are in accordance with that document," he said. Communities all around the lake depend on it as a source of drinking water. Agriculture interests in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA) south of the lake depend on the lake to irrigate crops. If the lake level is too high for a long period of time it can be harmful to the sheries, which need the cycle of highs and lows to create spawning areas. The communities around the lake depend on the sh to bring in tourism. If the lake is too low, that also hurts tourism because they have dif culty getting their boats in the water. "There are no easy solutions with so many interests involved," Mr. Campbell said. Any action taken regarding lake level up or downbrings complaints from one group or another. And the amount of water entering the system depends on rainfall, which the Corps cannot control. "The Corps' refusal to supply enough fresh water from Lake Okeechobee is wrecking the Caloosahatchee," said Earthjustice attorney David Guest. "It's an environmental crisis, and it's also an economic one. Tourists who came to visit Sanibel Island over the Christmas break this year arrived to nd stinking green algae and dead sh on the beaches. People have had to endure a nast y stench in downtown Fort Myers. Dead sh have washed up on the beaches in front o f condos and hotels in Naples. This can't be good for tourism." Andrew McElwaine, president of the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, said the water quality is affecting the region's economy, where most jobs are dependent on the tourism industry. "We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful places in the country," he said. "But how many tourists will keep coming here when the river is covered with stinking slime? The Corps simply has to do a better job protecting the Caloosahatchee. It is imperative for the Corps to provide adequate ow to keep the river healthy." Manley Fuller, president of the Florid a Wildlife Federation, said the Corps' operations are devastating essential marine and estuarine habitats that support recreational and commercial shing. "The polluted water is killing the seagrass nurseries at the estuary where sh and shell sh spawn," Mr. Fuller said. "It's too bad we have to go to court to get the authorities to do their job of protecting this river, but we do what we have to do. It belongs to the public, and we should all be able to enjoy it."

SOC recently completed paying off $30,000 in costs used to ght the Eagle Private Militia Development (near the Glades-Highlands border) that was to be an industrial, "Blackwater" type facility. It would have built milelong runways, 2,200 acres of ring ranges, a helicopter pad, its own private police and administration buildings, homes for their of cers, and would have been off-limits for local law enforcement. It would have seriousl y compromised the headwaters of Fisheating Creek and destroyed the rural character o f the small town of Venus. Save Our Creeks is managed and controlled by a Board of Directors which holds a minimum of four meetings per year. There is one annual membership meeting. SOC will have more expenses in the near future: ghting the lling in of Fisheating Creek, getting the word out to the public, printing brochures, bringing in speakers who are informed as to all the closed-door meetings that resulted in the decision to industrialize Fisheating Creek area.

"One applicant dropped out. But as for the other three, they were very good applicants. It was a tough decision to make," said Gutshall. However, the police department was able to hire from within their ranks. Mike Rowan has been with the CPD for the last three months. He is well aware of the great responsibility and duties he has to ful ll in his new position, the chief reported. Under the direction of the Chief Gutshall, Lt. Rowan will manage the patrol division, supervise subordinate supervisors, perform staff assignments and evaluations, and in the absence of the chief and administrative lieutenant, he will assume full command of the police department. "I'm anxious to get rolling. I want to help bring this department to its full potential," said Rowan. The newly appointed lieutenant surpasses the basic requirements for experience after serving for 16 years in Avon starting as a patrolling of cer and eventually making his way up to chief. "We are very excited to have him on the department. With his experience as chief in Avon, he has a lot to offer. My patrol of cers and sergeants are already leaning on him for wisdom. He will do an excellent job," said City Manager Steve McKown.
