Results are unof cial until certi ed. August 14 Primary Election Results By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades Democrat MOORE HAVEN—Glades County Commissioners Tuesday approved a project to remove nuisance alligators over six feet long from the greater Moore Haven area after a much publicized July attack of a 17-year-old that cost the youth his arm. The City of Moore Haven made the request and wanted Glades County’s support. The area in question would be the Caloosahatchee River from the Moore Haven Lock past Lake Hicpochee. Commissioner Russell Echols said the alligator involved in the attack was harvested. Alligator hunting season began Wednesday. He said there should not be 10-foot long alligators near residential areas. Turkey Creek and the Buckhead Ridge canals also contain alligators and commissioners discussed whether to harvest gators from those areas. Mr. Echols said the management program has protected alligators while gator farms have created hides that take away the pro tability of harvesting the gator. “We have large alligators, nobody reall y hunting them anymore, and they live where humans are. When they have an opportunit y to take a dog or animal they do it because they’re alligators. They are an apex predator and there is nothing to stop them.” Another proposal is a ban on feeding alligators. Fish cleaning stations often attract alligators near boat ramps. Jack Branch Road residents requested the county pave a one-mile section of the road at an estimated cost of $175,000. The road Project to remove nuisance alligatorsSee COUNTY — Page 13 Special to the Glades County Democrat Tuesday, Aug. 14 was primary election day in Florida. Florida is a closed political primary state. That means that only registered party members were allowed vote in their party’s primary. However, if all candidates for an of ce have the same party af liation and the of ce will be determined by the primary election, all quali ed voters, regardless of party af liation, are allowed to vote in the primary election for that of ce.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Eastern Towhee is a common bird that is sometimes called the “Ground Robin” or “Joree.” Three resident and wintering Eastern Towhee subspecies breed in Florida. These three races differ in the color of their iris. The Eastern Towhee has red eyes across most of its range, but the towhees in Florida and extreme southern Georgia may also have yellow or pale yellow (usually called “white”) eyes. These oversized sparrows are larger than other sparrows and smaller than robins. The Eastern Towhee has a chunky body, thick neck, and long rounded tail with white corners. They have a thick, triangular, seed-cracking bill. Adult males have a bold black back with warm reddish-brown sides and a white belly. Females have the same pattern, but are rich brown where males are black. The oldest known Eastern Towhee lived to be 12 years and three months old. The male’s song is a loud musical “jink denk te-e-e-e-e-e-e-e” (“drink your te-e-e-e-e-ee”). Some of the most common calls made by both sexes include rising “chewink, tow-hee or joree.” The Eastern Towhee is found in a variety of habitats in areas with dense thickets or brush where they can scratch around in the leaf litter on the ground for food. They will hop backward with both feet on the ground in the leaves and then dart after anything that they uncover. Their diet consist of a variety of seeds, fruits, insects, snails, soft leaves, and ower buds. Between April and August a breeding pair may raise two to three broods. It takes the female about ve days to build a nest made of a simple four inch cup of bark, twigs, grasses, and leaves on or near the ground. Two to ve creamy grayish eggs spotted with reddish-brown are laid in the nest. The eggs are incubated by the female for 12 to 13 days with the young edging in ten to 12 days. Eastern Towhee are being observed and heard in the Lake Okeechobee region. You are invited to join a team or volunteer to count Eastern Towhee and other bird species at your home or at in Florida locations during the Sept. 15 North American Migration Count (NAMC) sponsored by the Florida Ornithological Society and Audubon chapters. Phone or send an e-mail to Margaret England, to request information about the 7th Annual Hendry-Glades NAMC. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding trips to Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA5) at the new Deer Fence Trailhead located 27 miles south of Clewiston on Aug. 18 and Sept. 15. Photographers, groups, and families are welcome to participate in the escorted trips.

This compares with the national average that has increased 5.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.67/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 3.4 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 34.4 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 24.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 5.7 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average has spiked 25-cents per gallon just in the last month, thanks to an onslaught of re nery problemsmainly in the Great Lakes and California,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “While these situations are temporary in nature, it goes to show this nations dependence on domestic re neries. While oil prices have gained in recent days, there is some light at the end of the tunnel for motorists: driving season will be over in less than a month and soon thereafter the EPA also relaxes gasoline mandates, meaning cheaper winter fuel,” DeHaan said.

Tribal Council rep funneled distributions to himself, family, S.A. saysWifredo A. Ferrer, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, and Jos A. Gonzalez, Special Agent in Charge, Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID), announced that defendant David Roger Cypress, of Clewiston, Florida, was sentenced by United States District Judge Kathleen Williams to eighteen months’ imprisonment, followed by one year of supervised release. Cypress previously pled guilty to a one count Information charging him with ling a false 2007 United States federal income tax return, in violation of Title 26, United States Code, Section 7206(1). According to the Information led on March 30, 2012, and other court documents led and statements made in court, Cypress was a duly elected representative for Big Cypress reservation to the governing Tribal Council of The Seminole Tribe of Florida from at least 1999 to June, 2010. In his capacity as a Tribal Council representative, Cypress had the authority to authorize distributions to Tribal members, including to himself and to his family members. Cypress admitted that while he was a Tribal Council representative, he authorized substantial distributions to be paid to or for the bene t of himself and his family members. Speci cally, Cypress received approximately $285,433 in taxable distributions from The Seminole Tribe of Florida, which he knowingly and willfully failed to report on his 2007 federal tax return. The unreported income consisted of payments made to certain vendors for personal expenses paid on his behalf. The vendors would submit vouchers requesting payment to The Seminole Tribe of Florida, which were coded to conceal the fact that Cypress was the bene ciary of the payments and falsely described the reason for payment. Cypress authorized payment of these vouchers knowing the true basis of the request for payment, and that he was to be the bene ciary of the payment. Correct copies of the vouchers were also provided by the vendors, then destroyed. In addition to his plea of guilty to the criminal charge, as part of the plea agreement Cypress agreed to pay $5,457,889 as restitution to the IRS, which includes tax, interest and penalties which the IRS has determined are due and owing by him for tax years 2003 2009 as of March 15, 2012. U.S. Attorney Wifredo A. Ferrer stated, “Failure to report income to evade the payment of taxes is a crime. The U.S. Attorney’s Of ce is committed to enforcing our nation’s tax laws.” “Indian Tribal members are individually responsible for reporting and paying taxes on the bene ts and payments received from their tribes. Willful failure to le accurate income tax returns can result in severe criminal consequences,” said Jos A. Gonzalez, Special Agent in Charge o f IRS-Criminal Investigation Division, Miami Field Of ce. “Our justice system penalizes those who le fraudulent tax returns and intentionally evade paying their fair share of taxes.” Former Tribal Council Member Sentenced for Tax Fraud 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Mary Louise was born in Eerie, Pa., on January 20, 1924, to Florence Grossback Lund and Cyrus Raymond Lund. She was a premature baby who w eighed only 1.5 pounds at birth and w as brought home from the hospital in a shoe box. She was not expected to live, but her mother added calories between feedings with a lump of sugar w rapped in cheesecloth which served as a pacier. Before long, she graduated to sleeping in a dresser drawer. When Mary Lou nally stopped growing, she was a striking and smart young w oman at over 5 foot, 9 inches tall. She shared many stories of growing up in Pennsylvania w ith her sister Patti. Mary Lou’s life was drastically changed when, during a trip to South Florida to help provide aid at the hospital (when it was at the present-day Elks Lodge), Mary Lou fell in love with a local Clewiston boy. She went on to marry Charles ‘Tubby’ Owens and have three children, Patricia ‘Pro’ Carolyn, and Cyrus. For years, Mary Lou w orked at her mother-in-laws (Ruth Owens) retail store, “The Toggery Shop.” She claimed to know many of Clewiston resident’s body measurements when they walked in the door. Pro and Carolyn gave the couple ve grandchildren before Tubby died of a heart attack in 1968, Elizabeth, Darbie, James, Artis, and Julie. Mary Lou married Charles L. McWhorter on J uly 3, 1970, and expanded the family with his three children, Diane, Ronnie and Connie. Pro gave Mary Lou two more grandchildren, Lara, and Catrena, and son, Cyrus added two grandchildren, Lauren and Matthew. After working at the Clewiston National Bank for several years, Mary Lou joined Charlie in selling life insurance at Gulf Life Insurance. Together they enjoyed gol ng and traveling the United States in their W innebago. Mary Lou attended the Presbyterian Church in Clewiston, and enjoyed playing bridge, gol ng, and traveling with her close friends.

BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA Tristan Chapman, Chairman 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 16, 2012 By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County Democrat Investigators say late last week a 25-yearold Lakeport man was found dead outside a barn he was allegedly burglarizing. Adam Huff, of a Roberts Lane address, w as found dead around 9:35 p.m. Thursday, A ug. 9, by his brother and a friend. According to Detective Captain Daryl Lewis, of the Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce (GCSO), Huff apparently collapsed as he w as coming out of a barn located on Loop Road in Lakeport. “He had about $20,000 worth of property stacked behind the barn,” said Capt. Lewis in a phone interview Monday, Aug. 13. Found in that “stack” were ve or six batteries that had been cut out of golf carts, shing equipment, a trash can full of power tools and several other items. Capt. Lewis said Huff’s girlfriend dropped him off at the barn and she was supposed to come back to pick him up later. Huff was apparently alone at the time of his death, added the GCSO investigator. The man’s body had no visible signs of injury and it appears he died of natural causes, although Capt. Lewis said a toxicity screen has not been completed. It could be six weeks or longer before those results are known, he added. GCSO Detective Sergeant Mike Pepitone is handling this investigation. If anyone has information about the case they are asked to contact Sgt. Pepitone at 863-946-1600. Suspected burglar found dead at crime scene The Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce investigated reports of the following crimes in the past week: BUCKHEAD RIDGE  Casey Lane identity theft LAKEPORT  Club House Drive burglary MOORE HAVEN  Thatcher Blvd. burglary  County Road 720 copper theft Investigations By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County Democrat A Moore Haven man is being held in the Glades County Jail on bond following his arrest for allegedly violating an injunction and then leading a deputy on a brief chase. Luis Antonio Ortiz, 31, Pine Ave. S.W., was arrested Saturday, Aug. 11, on felony charges of eeing and eluding a law enforcement of cer and follow, harass/cyberstalk after injunction. He was also arrested on misdemeanor charges of driving under the in uence, simple assault and driving while license suspended. He is being held in lieu of $47,500 bond. An arrest report by Deputy Sergeant Richard Jones, of the Glades County Sheriff’s Ofce (GCSO), stated that as he was responding to a complaint on someone driving a gray 1983 Toyota station wagon he saw the car crossing U.S. 27 and going south on 10th Street. When the driver of the car, later learned to be Ortiz, saw Sgt. Jones in his marked patrol unit he reportedly accelerated and tried to get away from the deputy. The sergeant stated in his report that Ortiz ran at least two stop signs. Ortiz, continued the report, was nally stopped on Avenue R. According to the report, when Sgt. Jones learned where Ortiz had been he knew the man had violated an injunction that prohibited him from being in that area. “I personally know that Ortiz has been arrested several times for violating the active injunction during recent months,” stated Sgt. Jones. Sgt. Jones went on to point out in his report that the man’s driver’s license: was suspended for six months in 2010 following a DUI arrest; was canceled inde nitely on June 20, 2012, for failing to comply with an ignition interlock restriction; was revoked Sept. 14, 2010, for a year for DUI with property damage; was suspended inde nitely on June 26, 2010, for failure to pay a traf c ne; and, was suspended Nov. 8, 2010, for nonjudgement suspension. The GCSO deputy also stated that he seized the license plate on the car driven by Ortiz. Ortiz, added Sgt. Jones, refused to submit to a breath test. The stalking charge was led against Ortiz after Sgt. Jones learned from GCSO Deputy Steve Casserly that Ortiz had gone to a woman’s home and started calling her names and “... came toward her in his vehicle and acted like he was going to hit her with the car ... .” Ortiz also allegedly tried to strike the woman with his hand while he was in the car. But, stated the GCSO sergeant, she fought back and hit him in the face. Sgt. Jones stated in his report that an injunction was issued May 16, 2012, that prohibited Ortiz from being within 500 feet of the woman’s home. A rea man charged with DUI, eeing Luis Antonio Ortiz

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry-Glades Health DepartmentOh that magical feeling of freedom when you get behind the wheel! Most teenagers can hardly wait to start driving but most parents tend to have mixed feelings. Getting teens to fully understand safety messages about driving can be a dif cult challenge for parents. Some parents may feel relieved that they don't have to always be the chauffer, but at the same time, parents worry about their teen's safety. Parents need to "practice what they preach." Teens are more likely to wear a seatbelt, follow the rules of the road, and be a calm and courteous driver if they see their parents doing the same. Teens need to remember that driving is a privilege, not a right, and not all teens are ready to drive even when the law says they can. Just because a teen has a permit, doesn't mean they are ready for every driving condition. Most crashes involving teen drivers include one of the following factors: -Distracted Driving Which includes: Texting Talking on cell phone Eating -Reckless Driving Which includes: Speeding Tailgating -Driving with teen passengers -Not using seat-belts -Driver Inexperience and weather conditions -Nighttime driving -Impaired Driving Don't drive while under the in uence of medication, alcohol, or drugs. Teen Driving Data *Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States, taking the lives of eight teens a day. *In the last decade, over 68,000 teens have died in car crashes. *Sixty- ve percent of teen passenger deaths occur when another teenager is driving. The best thing a parent can do is to start teaching children at a young age about safe driving and then once the teen has a permit, let them practice-practice-practice! Ultimately, the teen will have to make decisions about their driving habits, but it's up to parents to be role models and enforce rules to encourage safe driving. Ask your insurance agent or the local department of motor vehicles for more information on teen driving. You can also visit the National Highway Traf c Safety Administration website at http://www. nhtsa.gov/Teen-Drivers/ or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's website http:// www.cdc.gov/Motorvehiclesafety/Teen_Drivers/ teendrivers_factsheet.html Remember to buckle up! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 CLEWISTON ADULT & COMMUNITY SCHOOL FALL SEMESTER 2012-2013 August 20, 2012 December 7, 2012475 E.

23 eagle nests reported throughout Glades CountyThe bald eagle population is increasing in Florida, which continues to be one of the top spots in the lower 48 states for bald eagles to nest and raise their young. Based on its 2011 aerial survey, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) estimates there are 1,457 active bald eagle nests in Florida, nearly a 9 percent increase since 2008, when the state implemented a bald eagle management plan. Long-term success with bald eagles in Florida is re ected in the species' recovery from just 88 active nests in 1973. Glades County has 23 documented eagle nests. In neighboring Okeechobee County, 33 bald eagle nests have been documented. On July 3, at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland, leaders from the FWC and Audubon Florida highlighted the bald eagle's recovery and the ongoing challenge of conserving these large raptors. They said celebrating the bald eagle's resurgence in Florida was a great way to kick off the nation's 236th anniversary of declaring independence. "Bald eagles have made a remarkable recovery in Florida. The FWC and Audubon are working together to protect bald eagles in Florida, so these majestic raptors will continue to soar as a symbol of national pride and conservation success," said FWC Chairman Kenneth Wright. For 20 years, Audubon Florida has recruited citizen-scientists to monitor eagles and their nests through its EagleWatch program, active in more than 40 counties. By monitoring more than 20 percent of the state's nesting pairs, these volunteers make a signi cant difference in conserving the species. "Audubon is proud to have played a role in the bald eagle's amazing success story in Florida," said Eric Draper, executive director for Audubon Florida. "Our dedicated staff and EagleWatch volunteers, along with our state agency partners, have helped to identify potential threats to these magni cent birds and their nest sites, but our work is far from done. Together, we are leading the nation in the protection of this important and iconic species." Working with ranchers and other landowners to protect bald eagle habitat is another priority for Audubon, with its involvement going back 50 years to the start of the Cooperative Kissimmee Eagle Sanctuary Program. Florida's greatest concentrations of bald eagle nesting territories are clustered around coastal and freshwater areas such as the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes. In 2011, Osceola and Polk counties ranked rst and second, respectively, for highest number of documented bald eagle nests. Floridians and visitors are encouraged to get outdoors to enjoy the state's many parks and public lands and watch bald eagles soar. Y ou can nd a Bald Eagle Nest Locator at MyFWC.com/Eagle. Bald eagles almost disappeared from the lower 48 states by the mid-20th century, with an estimated 417 pairs in the United States in 1963. The use of the now-banned pesticide DDT was causing eggshells to weaken and break under the weight of adults incubating eggs. Today, a healthy and stable eagle popsulation in Florida will depend on continued availability of appropriate nesting and foraging habitats, as well as protection from disturbance during the nesting season. While the bald eagle is no longer listed as an endangered or threatened species, it is federally protected under the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act and Migratory Bird Treaty Act, and by state rule (F.A.C. 68A16.002). It is illegal to feed, disturb, take or possess a bald eagle, its feathers, nest or eggs. The public can help conserve bald eagles in Florida by following state guidelines for activities near eagle nests, and by reporting new eagle nest locations to BaldEagle@MyFWC.com. The goal of the FWC bald eagle management plan, developed with public input, is to maintain a stable or increasing bald eagle population throughout Florida. The FWC provides guidelines for avoiding disturbance to nesting eagles, and a permitting framework for activities that cannot adhere to the guidelines. Audubon's Center for Birds of Prey contributes to eagle conservation through its specialized clinical care and EagleWatch program. The Center recently celebrated the 450th rehabilitated bald eagle released back into the wild since 1979. For more on bald eagles, go to MyFWC. com/Eagle.

Hardin on Saturday afternoon during the open house at the Glades County Library was exceptionally interesting and informative. The course lasted for three hours from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Each participant received a copy of the Student’s Handbook entitled “Refuse To Be A Victim” and a supplement handout on rearms. It was an open discussion where participants were able to ask questions about any subject they wished. Chief Pottorff discussed home security considerations including doors, windows, locks, keys, alarm systems and several other areas where citizens might leave themselves open to crime. He also discussed vehicle prevention devices such as w heel locks, kill switches, vehicle tracking devices and car alarms. We discussed many other areas too numerous to list here. Sgt. Hardin presented technological security. This includes credit cards, phone security, answering machines and cell phones. W e also had a long discussion with regard to identity theft, banking scams, cyberfraud (electronic theft on the Internet) and cyberstalking or cyberbullying. Last, but not least, Sgt. Hardin presented the subject of rearms. He is the supervisor of the Sheriff’s Department ring range on SR 78 and we talked about weapon safety, the “Stand Your Ground” law and the requirements for Concealed Weapons Permits. Anyone who wishes to host this Crime Prevention Seminar for their organization or association may contact Chief Deputy Pottorff at the Glades County Sheriff’s Department. He is willing to do this presentation for you. Don’t give crime a chance! Share the solution.

The appraised value of these properties on the road is nearly $6.2 million. The pavement of the road was placed on the Glades County road plan in 2002. The residents presented a petition to request the pavement. Residents complained about dust, damage done to their vehicles, and the lengthy delay to have the road improved. Road Superintendent Avant Brown said the bridge on the road needs to be replaced. He reported the rst mile of the road is in good shape and that it would take minimal w ork to prepare the road for pavement. Commission Chairman Butch Jones said he was concerned about drainage problems in the area and the paved road being damaged during heavy rain events. Commissioner Donna Long asked the commission to prioritize these road pavement projects. She explained the county nances are tight. She proposed the use of 1 cent sales tax revenue to improve this road. Mr. Jones said the county has $500,000 dedicated to build community centers in Ortona and Washington Park this year. Those costs would reduce the 1 cent budget to $400,000. "I wouldn't want to exhaust it to the point w here we don't have money to spend. I'm not opposed to this project but I'd like to see how these other projects turn out," he added. Commissioner Paul Beck reported the 1 cent money should be spent equally across the county and that money has been spent in all ve districts to improve the communities with building repairs, boat ramps, ball eld lights, and other projects. He claimed over $500,000 has been spent in the Muse and western communities commission district, well over what has been spent in other districts. "When money becomes available this paving should be done. I think it would be a good project. I don't want to do it until we have funds available," he added. Commissioner Long said her district has not had roads paved like other districts since 2002. Commissioner Echols said fuel taxes pay for road projects and the county has seen a decline in revenue because of state regulations on fuel pumps. He said the voters wanted the 1 cent sales tax to improve the entire community and not necessarily speci c districts. The commission directed Mr. Brown to create a priority list for road pavement projects. In other business, the commission voted to transmit to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity a proposal that would change the future land use classi cation on 235 acres north of Route 720 south of Moore Haven for industrial uses. The project is proposed by Joe Marlin Hilliard and DeLisi Fitzgerald, Incorporated. The project includes 1700 feet of rail frontage. The proposed project is currently vacant agriculture land. The commission approved a payment of $98,264, which will be deducted from Medicaid payments to the county on a monthly basis over three years, to pay for outstanding Medicaid bills owed by Glades County for the period between November, 2001 and August, 2012. The state required the Agency for Health Care Administration this year, by the legislature, to certify the amount owed by each Florida County in unpaid Medicaid bills. Glades County was given a 15 percent discount off the amount certi ed by the AHCA of $115,605. The Commission also voted to purchase two lawnmowers off government contract. The estimated prices are between $14,700 and $15,600. A workshop meeting was scheduled for Monday, Aug. 20, at 1 p.m. to discuss the county industrial park and associated economic development efforts with the inland port project. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is expected to attend the Monday, Aug. 27, meeting to discuss the alligator issue. The meeting begins at 6 p.m. These meetings will be held in the Glades County Courthouse. COUNTYContinued From Page 1 defeated George Humphries.

The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth below. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s agency actions may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes.

The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition within twenty-one days of receipt of notice shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the determination; (c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact.

Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Department’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Department have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.

BEVIS Deputy Clerk 423966 CN 8/16,23/2012 18 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 16, 2012 Public Notice Public Notice By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County Democrat Glades and Hendry Democrats met at the Port LaBelle Inn on Thursday, Aug. 4 As this joint meeting was before the Aug. 14, primary, it was well attended by Democrats from both counties. Joe Thomas, chairman of the Hendry Democratic Executive Committee told members “Hendry County members are not divorcing Glades County but we think we can get better results by combining our efforts.” This merger will result in a coalition that will produce better results and make it easier on everyone to share meetings. Ellen Geake, chairperson of the Glades Democratic Executive Committee heartily agreed with Mr. Thomas as did all those present at Thursday’s Hendry-Glades Democrats Unity Dinner held at the Oxbow Inn in LaBelle. Some of the many advantages to this merger will be the rotation of meetings that will keep everyone totally informed about their county’s leaders. Hendry County Commissioner Janet Taylor reminded everyone “what happens in Hendry County affects Glades County”. Discussions centered around the reorganization, Primary Election, and informing voters the method of voting by mail. Mr. Thomas urged everyone to not only tell friends and neighbors to vote but inform them how to vote, how to get an absentee ballot and how to get transportation to the polls. “Tell them to vote the entire ballot,” he said. Speeches were brief but to the point. Many conversations centered around the choice of new candidates versus incumbents. It is obviously a dif cult choice for voters. Each candidate was given approximately three minutes to introduce themselves and state what they wanted to accomplish. These desires focused on jobs, a better education system for children and protecting the state’s land, water and air for future generations. Several mentioned creating a faster, less expensive method o f helping small businesses get started. Candidates in the agriculture and cattle-raising business promised to keep the industry in the counties. This year’s delegate to the 2012 Democratic National Convention will be Hendr y County Commissioner Janet Taylor. Ms. Taylor, a commissioner for 20 years gentl y chastised Glades Countians for not showing up when she made announced visits to the Glades County meetings. ”I’ll be happy to return” she said, “but you better be there!” Several of the Democratic Candidates do not have primary opposition and reminded everyone of the importance of getting out to vote Nov. 6. Regular monthly meetings will continue on the last Thursday of the month, with the next meeting being held in Clewiston on Sept. 27, at 6:30 p.m. at a location to be announced later. Democratic executive committees merge Five-month-old female alligators exposed during development to toxins found in a polluted Florida lake show changes in ovarian gene function and decreased body weight at hatching, but paradoxically showed accelerated growth rates in the months after hatching, according to a study at the University of Florida. Alligators are a species whose relative well-being in a given environment is indicative of the health of its ecosystem, and scientists say the study may have broader implications for ovarian function and obesity in other animals. The ndings appeared in May in the journal Molecular and Cellular Endocrinology. Previous research demonstrated that repeated contact with chemical runoff from spills in Lake Apopka, near Orlando, caused male alligators to develop shorter than normal sexual organs and the loss of normal patterns of sex differences in hormone levels and gonad function. Now, scientists show that environmental exposure to hormonally active toxins such as PCBs and DDT and its breakdown products are also affecting normal genetic functioning in female alligator ovaries. The results: contaminant-exposed female hatchlings are born smaller and shorter, but gain weight at a faster rate during post-hatching development than alligators exposed to fewer toxins. In this study, the researchers found an association between altered ovary function and changes in body growth rates. Many human reproductive illness syndromes that affect female fertility, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, or PCOS, have symptoms that include altered ovarian gene functioning, a lack of normal ovulation and metabolic diseases such as obesity and diabetes. “The ovaries of the hatchling alligators at rst seem to function normally, but when you hormonally stimulate them, that’s when gene expression abnormalities start to appear,” said Louisiana Tech University professor Brandon C. Moore, who led the study, which was based on his graduate research at UF in the laboratory of reproductive biologist Louis Guillette. To investigate dysfunction in reproduction, Moore and his colleagues collected alligator eggs from Lake Apopka which has been examined for three decades by scientists surveying the effects of industrial pesticides and sewage pollution. Eggs were incubated and hatched under laboratory conditions. They injected the young alligators with Follicle Stimulating Hormone, or FSH, which regulates reproductive processes in many species, including alligators and humans. “When you give an animal FSH, it’s like revving the gas pedal,” Moore said. However, there was no “revving” for pivotal ovarian genes of pollution-exposed alligators when injected with FSH in Moore’s experiments. In addition, the researchers explored the parallels between the lack of FSH responsiveness and potentially environment-induced human reproductive diseases, such as polycystic ovary syndrome, a disorder where levels of the female sex hormones estrogen and progesterone become imbalanced. “Even though we’re studying alligators, what makes endocrinology so powerful is that the chemical structure of most of the steroid and thyroid hormones are identical among vertebrates, from sh to people,” said Ashley Boggs, a postdoctoral researcher at the Medical University of South Carolina who also studies alligators near Cape Canaveral. “It’s not just about your genes but also about what you’ve been exposed to throughout your whole life, from embryonic development to puberty to pregnancy.” Boggs suggested long-term epidemiological studies would need to be conducted to determine whether human reproduction and development may also be in uenced by the same contaminants affecting Florid a alligators. Such a study would require taking blood samples from expectant mothers and screen for similar chemicals. However, because thousands of chemicals such as BPA and phthalates are used and easily found in the environment, Boggs said it is an enormous task to separate which toxins are in uencing speci c biological functions. This study at Lake Apopk a is an important step to answering that challenge, she said.

Robert Wilson seeks election as county sheriff When an adult child must step in to assist their mother or father with everyday activities like nancial matters, medical issues and taking care of the house, traditional parent/child roles are reversed—often causing anxiety for both parties involved. People are living longer than ever before and Mental Health America reports that nearly half of all Americans between 45 and 55 years old have living parents and children under the age of 21. Dealing with your own busy schedule while helping your aging parents can be stressful, even if they do not live w ith you. Caring for your parents isn’t easy, but the following tips may help ease the burden: 1. Know your parents’ doctors, medications, and medical history. Keep a list of your parents’ doctors’ phone numbers handy and keep a chart that lists which medications and dosages should be taken throughout the day. Remind them to schedule and keep all necessary doctors’ appointments (or schedule them yourself) and help them nd a system that reminds them to take their medications. If you aren’t with your parents continuously, a divided pill tray with slots for times of day is a good way to ensure that medications are taken at the right time. 2. Help with chores and projects around the house. If your elderly parents still live alone, even light chores like vacuuming, dusting and taking out the trash can become tough. Help them clean each week or hire someone to take this on. Many cleaning services are reasonably priced. 3. Watch their nances. Paying bills and doing taxes isn’t easy for most people, particularly senior citizens that may not understand or even use modern-day features like debit cards and online banking. Help take care of your parents’ nances to ensure they aren’t overspending and be sure to read the ne print when lling out forms and applications. Be aware that many people do not like to talk about their money with relatives, especially if they are having nancial problems. 4. Make sure they are eating healthy meals. Good nutrition is important at any age, but it’s not uncommon for seniors to skip meals to save money, forget to eat, or eat snacks instead of proper breakfasts, lunches and dinners. If possible, help your parents grocery shop and stock their pantry with healthy foods that are easy to prepare. A meal delivery program, such as Senior Services, may be able to bring food to your parents if you’re not able to do so. 5. Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Working and taking care of your children can make helping your aging parents even harder. Your parents may not be ready to live in a nursing home, yet still need more help than you can provide. They may be resistant at rst, but the Family Caregiver Alliance offers a wealth of information about hiring in-home help for seniors. Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee understands that seniors have special needs. If you’re worried about a parent’s health, the hospital’s free Consult-A-Nurse service is a great reference whenever you have questions. Our registered nurses can answer health-related questions and help you schedule an appointment with a physician for your loved one. Contact Consult-A-Nurse for a healthcare question or physician referral at 863-763-9228. Tips offered for adult children caring for aging parents Stuart Whiddon Robert Wilson The Miami blue butter y’s territory is shrinking. This small, iridescent butter y species once uttered up the west coast as far as Tampa and the east coast to Daytona Beach. Now it is detected only on small islands in the Key West National Wildlife Refuge, west of Key West. Even there, the Miami blue’s numbers uctuate greatly. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) June 27 changed the status of the Miami blue butter y from state-designated threatened to federally designated endangered on Florida’s Endangered and Threatened Species List. The Commissioners’ decision recognizes the current federal status of the Miami blue, designated as endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, rst on an emergency basis in 2011 and then of cially this year. Why do this? In September 2010, after extensive public and stakeholder input, the FWC adopted new rules to eliminate confusion or duplication about the listing of Florida’s endangered and threatened species. Prior to that time, it was possible for a Florida species to be listed differently by state and federal wildlife agencies, or for a species’ status to be evaluated simultaneously by both agencies. That confusion and duplication of effort no longer exists, as the FWC adopts federal listing changes to keep the Florida Endangered and Threatened Species List consistent with federal listings. The Miami blue butter y is a homebody, with its longest ight recorded to be just 25 feet. Threats to the butter y include habitat loss, hurricanes, insecticides and nonnative green iguanas consuming the nickerbean, also a host plant for its larvae.
