Statewide the average for primary elections was around 25 percent. Mrs. Whiddon said 31.91 percent of Glades County voters turned out for the primary. "I thought we would have more turnout, with so many local races and local candidates and all the rallies and the signs," said Mrs. Whiddon. "I thought the turn out was going to be higher."

The Children’s Defense Fund National Conference was held from July 22-July 25 in Cincinnati Ohio and was hosted by Mariam Wright Adelman a Civil Rights Activist and President of CDF. The conference featured cutting edge plenary sessions, and dozens of compelling workshops that focus on the latest research and best practices, community building models, and community and youth empowerment strategies that bene t children and prioritize their future. It gathered over 3,000 leading researchers, educators, policymakers, practitioners, faith leaders and over 1,500 Young Adult Leader Trainees (YALT). Community leaders, child mentors/ advocates, early childhood educators from the Harlem Community and the executive director of Child Care of SW FL who manages six child care centers in Hendry and Lee county, traveled to Ohio to attend the conference. The trip was funded through a grant by Southwest Florida Community Foundation. One of the missions for the group, Harlem Community Task Force, is to create a lasting positive change. “When 16.4 million children are poor, 8.3 million children don’t have health care and a majority of children cannot read or compute at grade level in the 4th, 8th and 12th grades – we have a growing national crisis that demands an urgent response,” said task force representatives. Among the guest speakers for the conference was renowned author and poet Maya Angelou. “I came to Cincinnati Ohio to say something and I’m not leaving until I say it” said Angelou. She left a message after her speech for the audience: “Always remember, you are a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” Another memorable guest was Jeffery Canada, Author, President & CEO of the Harlem Children’s Zone in New York and Chair of CDF’s Board of Directors. Mr. Canada is passionate regarding the “Be Careful What You Cut” campaign sponsored by CDF which notes that “cutting education investments now would later increase a child’s chances of going to prison by up to 39 percent, and paying for that prison will cost all of us nearly three times more a year than it would have cost to provide him with a quality early learning experience.” As one university graduate YALT attendee commented “I’m in the middle of a transition as we speak,” he said, looking around at all the other people in line. He’s happy to be in attendance, anxious about what lies ahead: “I mean, the sky’s the limit-right?” Children’s Defense Fund Conference Sees Local Faces 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 23, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Smooth-billed Ani is a common resident of tropical savannahs in South and Central America and the Caribbean and a rarity in Florida. This black crow-like member of the cuckoo family apparently came from the Caribbean to south Florida without assistance from humans. By the mid 20th century its population in Florida had reached more than 1,000 individuals, but by the 1990’s only 24 individuals were being reported during Christmas Bird Counts. A few individuals are occasionally spotted in south Florida and the Keys. During the rst Breeding Bird Atlas 25 years ago they were con rmed breeding south and west of Lake Okeechobee including the Clewiston area. During the summer months individual birds are still occasionally reported in these areas. Severe freezes are believed to have contributed to the reduction of the Florida population. Reports of sightings will help determine the status of this easily identi able bird in inland Florida. Adults have black slender bodies, shaggy plumage, and a graduated long tail. They have a short thick rounded beak with a high ridge on some individuals. Immature Smooth-billed Ani look like the adult, but their plumage is duller and they have a shallower bill. Smooth-billed Anis has a weak and wobbly ight, but run well. The Smooth-billed Ani’s call is a loud whiney, ascending “que-lick” or “ah-nee” that announces its presence in an area. To hear the Ani’s distinctive call go to Cornell’s free website at www. allaboutbirds.org and search for Smooth-billed Ani. These gregarious birds will live in noisy groups of one to ve breeding pairs and up to seventeen individuals. They defend their territory with one member of their group sitting on a high perch watching for danger while the rest forage for food. Smooth-billed Ani will forage on the ground and in trees and shrubs for insects, lizards, frogs, seeds, and some fruit. The also eat insects stirred up by grazing cattle and power mowers. They prefer living in open grasslands with brush or scrub, elds, pastures undeveloped lots, marshes and canals According to “Florida’s Breeding Bird Atlas”, “breeding can occur from March through October and may be associated with the availability of food “. Small groups of one to ve breeding pairs will build a communal nest and share breeding duties. They build a bulky nest of twigs lined with leaves in the fork of tangled brush, palms or other trees. Each female lays 2 to 7 greenish-blue eggs in a layer separated by leaves. Clutches of up to 36 eggs are incubated by both sexes for 14 days with the young edging in 7 to 10 days. The ightless young will climb in and around the nest area 5 days after hatching. Juvenile Smooth-billed Anis from rst broods will help feed the second brood. 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 29 miles south of Clewiston on Sept. 15 or Oct. 13. Photographers, groups and families are welcome to participate in the escorted trips.

BY MARK KINGIt has been a hot summer here in south Florida as it has been over a lot of the U.S. but the shing here on Lake Okeechobee remains steady. Most of the bass are offshore chasing bait and the shing action can be awesome in the morning, but as the sun gets up high in the sky it pushes the bait down and the bass are much harder to nd. Our water level has remained around 12 feet above sea level all summer long, which is a good thing to not have to worry about a drought. I have been shing mostly arti cial lures but have shed the wild shiners a little the past few weeks. There is a lot of gar in the areas that we sh the shiners and you end up with the gar eating more of the shiners than the bass. For arti cial lures, I have been mostly throwing lipless crankbaits like the Spro Aruku Shad in both the 5/8 and one ounce size, gold and chrome are my color choices. After the bite slows down a little in the morning, I will start shing a Carolina rig and a shakey head rig. On my Carolina rig I like to use a Gambler Ace and on my shakey head jig a Gambler Sweebo worm works great in junebug color for both. I am still catching a few and I mean very few bass in the grass on jigs, but if you do catch one they are usually a good sized bass. Still using a or 1 ounce jig with a Gambler Mega Daddy for a trailer. As for areas that I have been shing it has been out on the main lake from off the Clewiston channel, the reef both inside and outside, Uncle Joe's Cut out at the lake end, and also the rim canal has been holding some bass. You will need a good GPS with maps to nd the good areas of the reef but the Clewiston channel and other areas I mentioned are pretty easy to nd. The water level is at a good safe level to run carefully but don't run too close to the grass yet as we need another foot of water to make this safe to run. As the kids head back to school and fall is just around the corner, the shing on Lake Okeechobee will start to get better with every passing day, the bass will get ready to start heading back into the grass where we all love to catch them. Now is the time to start booking those winter trips here on the lake as this winter promises to be even better than last year and it was crazy catching big bass here last season. Be sure to drink lots of water out on the lake this time of year and keep plenty of sunscreen on all exposed skin. Until next report good luck, tight lines, and I hope to see everyone on the water soon.

With constantly changing tools and trends, teachers can do more to stay up-to-date to help children thrive. It is important that parents understand what these changes mean so their children can maintain a competitive edge. Here are some new trends in education that every parent should know about:More collaborationIf you think Facebook is all gossip and games, think again. Many teachers are drawing upon social media’s natural collaborative element and ability to connect the classroom and home. In fact, some innovative teachers are using sites like Pinterest, Skype, Facebook and Twitter in a controlled, supervised way to make classroom materials more accessible and encourage conversation.Learning from each otherSince technology can change so rapidly, it’s important that teachers share best practices by word of mouth. The newest social platform, Edmodo, built the rst whole network of K-12 users and connects teachers with other teachers as well as parents, students and third-parties. Edmodo members can swap ideas, share lesson plans and manage grades in a secure network accessible from school computers. With more than eight million users across 60,000 different schools, the possibilities are endless.New toolsNew technologies, such as tablets and e-readers, are helping students learn. These smaller devices offer students advantages over traditional computers, through interactive capabilities that bring lessons to life and enhanced images, video and audio. Tablets also have practical advantages such as “instant on,” all-day battery life, no cords and are often more cost-effective than ordering new text books each year.Adding more funAccording to Open College, teachers who integrated digital games into lessons saw an increase in average test scores when compared to traditional, non-digital games. By making learning fun, you can get kids excited to learn just about anything and get some laughs along the way.Turn it offIn this digital era, it is also important to make sure students have the time to unplug. Not only does time outside offer children opportunities to get necessary exercise, but a 2009 Yeshiva University study found that children who have more recess time behave better in the classroom and are likelier to learn more. So how can parents make sure schools have plans to fund programming that supports these new trends? Be proactive! For example, you can help now by nominating a new or existing K-12 program at your school to win a grant of up to $50,000 from The Clorox Company’s Power a Bright Future Program. To nominate your school for a chance to win, pick a program category from the elds of “Play,” “Create,” or “Explore,” submit a photo and describe the program vision for your school at: www.PowerABrightFuture.com. Hurry, nominations close Oct. 17. Education is evolving all the time. Be sure to stay on top of changes so your children get a leg up on learning.

BY TOM NORDLIE UFFor humans, gender is one of the de ning characteristics of life, but for papayas, it's more like a work in progress. This tropical fruit crop reproduces sexually, meaning there are male and female papaya trees. But there's also a third type with the reproductive capacity of both genders. This type is called a hermaphrodite and, unlike male or female plants, it can self-pollinate. Now, a study involving current University of Florida researcher Jianping Wang helps explain how the plant's sex chromosomes evolved over time to produce the three genders. Wang was lead author of the paper and performed the work while a postdoctoral fellow with the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The ndings, published last week by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, shed light on evolutionary processes. The data might also have practical value for papaya growers, who say they get bigger yields and better fruit from hermaphroditic plants. "In the future, if we understand the process of sex determination clearly, not only can we evaluate young plants before they're in the ground, and select plants with the gender we want, but also we can identify the sex determination genes and manipulate a pure inbred papaya plant for papaya growers," said Wang, an agronomy assistant professor with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. That approach could be used for other crops that reproduce sexually, she said. For example, asparagus growers prefer to raise male plants. In the study, Wang and colleagues led an eight-institution team that analyzed genes from sex chromosomes, long strings of DNA sequences that code for anatomical traits we know as gender. The researchers worked with a group of genes in a sex-determination region of the chromosome that controls development of owers with both male and female characteristics in hermaphrodites, and also a corresponding region from female sex chromosomes. First, they mapped the DNA sequences from both regions of the sex chromosomes, then compared the sequences. Comparisons revealed that the female sex chromosome region had a shorter DNA sequence about 3.5 million DNA base pairs, compared with 8.1 million base pairs for the hermaphroditic plant. Many of those extra DNA sequences appear to distinguish the hermaphrodite from the female plant. This nding supports a hypothesis about the evolution of sex chromosomes: Genders only develop after DNA sequences become altered and a species established two distinct but similar genomes. Later, it's believed, these fundamental genetic differences become more pronounced and give rise to distinctive sex types. Since arriving at UF in 2010, Wang has been sequencing genes in bioenergy crops such as energycane, searching for genes that in uence the potential value of the plants as feedstocks. Ultimately, she wants to help produce crops with high biomass yields, good disease resistance and chemical pro les well-suited to processing. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 23, 2012 Papaya Study Sheds Light on Development of Sex Chromosomes PHOTO / UF

By Danielle TorrentUniversity of Florida GAINESVILLE, Fla. — University of Florida researchers curating a 17-foot-7-inch Burmese python, the largest found in Florida, discovered 87 eggs in the snake, also a state record. Scientists at the Florida Museum of Natural History on the UF campus examined the internal anatomy of the 164.5-pound snake Friday, Aug. 10. The animal was brought to the Florida Museum from Everglades National Park as part of a long-term project with the U.S. Department of the Interior to research methods for managing the state’s invasive Burmese python problem. Following scienti c investigation, the snake will be mounted for exhibition at the museum for about ve y ears, and then returned for exhibition at Everglades National Park. “This thing is monstrous, it’s about a foot w ide,” said Florida Museum herpetology collection manager Kenneth Krysko. “It means these snakes are surviving a long time in the w ild, there’s nothing stopping them and the native wildlife are in trouble.” Mr. Krysko said the snake was in excellent health and its stomach contained feathers that will be identi ed by museum ornithologists. Burmese pythons are known to prey on native birds, deer, bobcats, alligators and other large animals. “A 17.5-foot snake could eat anything it w ants,” Mr. Krysko said. “By learning what this animal has been eating and its reproductive status it will, hopefully, give us insight into how to potentially manage other wild Burmese pythons in the future. It also highlights the actual problem, which is invasive species.” Native to Southeast Asia and rst found in the Everglades in 1979, the Burmese python is one of the deadliest and most competitive predators in South Florida. With no known natural predator, population estimates for the python range from the thousands to hundreds of thousands. They were determined to be an established species in 2000 and are a signi cant concern, Krysko said. “They were here 25 years ago, but in very low numbers and it was dif cult to nd one because of their cryptic behavior,” Mr. Krysko said. “Now, you can go out to the Everglades nearly any day of the week and nd a Burmese python. We’ve found 14 in a single day.” The rapid population growth led to recent state laws prohibiting people from owning Burmese pythons as pets or transporting the snakes across state lines without a federal permit. Florida residents also may hunt pythons in certain wildlife management areas during established seasons with a hunting license and required permits. Everglades National Park and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are partnering with other agencies to address the increasing populations. Skip Snow, a park wildlife biologist, said research of the snake’s biology is important for understanding how to curtail the future spread of invasive species. “I think one of the important facts about this animal is its reproductive capability,” Mr. Snow said. “There are not many records of how many eggs a large female snake carries in the wild. This shows they’re a really reproductive animal, which aids in their invasiveness.” Non-native species are considered invasive if they have a negative impact on native species or habitat, cause economic damage or pose a threat to human health and safety. Exotic snakes found in Florida are often the result of pet owners accidentally or intentionally releasing the animals. Citizens may dial 1-888-IVE-GOT1 to receive removal assistance by trained handlers. Previous records for Burmese pythons captured in the wild were 16.8 feet long and 85 eggs. “I’m really happy to be part of this team of researchers working on the Burmese python problem in Florida, and have been for a number of years,” Mr. Krysko said. “But when I’m able to conduct this type of research here at the university, I’m able to teach new students and new researchers about python anatomy and discuss the problem with invasive species. We need all the help we can get, we really do.” Florida has the world’s worst invasive reptile and amphibian problem. Krysko led a 20-year study published in September 2011 in Zootaxa showing 137 non-native species were introduced to Florida between 1863 and 2010. The study veri ed the pet trade as the No. 1 cause of the species’ introductions and the Burmese python was one of 56 non-native species determined to be reproducing and established in the state. Editor’s note: In 2009, veterinarian Jim “Doc” Harvey killed a 17-foot-2 inch python on the bank of a canal next to Okeechobee Veterinary Hospital in Okeechobee County. The snake measured 26 inches in circumference and weighed 200 pounds, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission report. The python meat was donated to Arnold’s Wildlife Center, a wildlife rehabilitation organization in northern Okeechobee County.

District 55In the State Representative District 55 race, district wide, after the rst count, Cary Pigman received 50.13 percent of the vote and Randy Johnson received 49.87 percent of the vote. Cary Pigman received 5,966 votes to Randy Johnson’s 5,940. In Glades County, Cary Pigman received 45.44 percent of the vote; Randy Johnson received 54.56 percent. In Okeechobee County Randy Johnson received 67.28 percent and Cary Pigman received 32.71 percent. Because the votes were so close, there was a machine recount for the race. On Aug. 18, after all of the ballots were recounted, Dr. Pigman was declared the winner with a lead of 34 votes. Since 34 votes was more than .25 percent of the total votes cast, a hand recount was not required under State Elections Law, according to a spokesperson for the Florida Department of State. District 55 includes Glades County, Okeechobee County, part of St. Lucie County and part of Highlands County. In Glades County, Mr. Johnson lost one Glades County vote in the recount, said Mrs. Whiddon. “We think the machine must have jammed and it counted a ballot twice,” she said. Dr. Pigman, an emergency room doctor, will face Democrat Crystal Drake, a teacher from Moore Haven, in the general election. Those who are not already registered to vote have until Oct. 9 to register to vote in the Nov. 6 general election. Early voting for the Nov. 6 election will be Oct. 27 to Nov. 3. None of the local races were close enough for a recount. V OTEContinued From Page 1 By Charles M.

This compares with the national average that has increased 2.1 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.70/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 10.1 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 27.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 21.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 11.8 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average has nally begun to cool off after rising nearly every day since the start of July,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “As the West Coast and Great Lakes see re ning issues in the rear view mirror, as well as the end of the summer driving season approaching, we may see a new downward pattern develop which could see average prices fallingespecially after mid-September, a pattern that could dominate the gas pump until the holiday season,” DeHaan said.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has launched a new w ebsite that makes it easy for citizens who spot Florida panthers to share the information online. The site – https://Public.MyFWC.com/ hsc/PantherSightings/ – enables the public to report when and where they have seen a panther or its tracks and upload photos of the sighting. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild. Now there are an estimated 100 to 160 adults and sub-adults. Sub-adults are panthers that have left their mother but are not yet breeding age. The growing population of this endangered species and its need to roam over large areas mean panthers are spreading beyond their well-documented south Florida range. The FWC has evidence of panther sightings throughout Florida and is getting increased reports from people lucky enough to have photographed a panther or its tracks. “While it’s encouraging to hear from a person who is excited about seeing a Florida panther, the FWC has to have speci c documentation of the panther sighting to provide sound science-based panther management,” said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader. “We’ve been receiving a lot of panther pictures from people who use trail cameras, and this website makes it easy for them to share that information with the FWC.” FWC researchers will use the reported sightings to gain knowledge on the range of Florida panthers. “The comeback of the Florida panther is a great example of what coordinated conservation efforts can accomplish,” Land said. “The FWC is asking people to help document how panthers are responding to these conservation efforts and where they are coexisting with Florida’s 19 million human residents.” Learn more about the Florida panther at FloridaPantherNet.org/. The site includes information about panthers for people of different interest levels, including a coloring book and activity pages for kids.

The kickoff classic might not count in the standings, but it will still matter to the players involved. Mike Minikwu returns to Moore Haven after a successful run up north as a college player and as a high school coach. He planned to bring along a wide open pistol offense that likes to throw the football. Chris Branham begins a second tenure as the Brahmans coach with a veteran group of senior players that have been frustrated by three tough years on the gridiron. With only ve wins to show for their efforts, Okeechobee will be hungry for any victory. Moore Haven plays in District 2A-6. They w ere (5-5) in 2011.

A 17.7 foot Burmese python recently found in Everglades National Park is a reminder that these problem snakes are here to stay. The Nature Conservancy has been w orking to prevent their spread out of the Everglades by training responders to pick them up when sighted. If you see a sun-bathing python or any other invasive species, like Nile monitors, take a photo and please call I-888-IveGot1 and report your sighting to the Python Patrol. “We have 24-hour response by law enforcement in 10 counties, although anyone in Florida can leave a message,” said Nature Conservancy Biologist Cheryl Millett, w ho runs the Conservancy’s Python Patrol program. The counties where a responder trained by the Conservancy to capture inv asive snakes is dispatched are: Glades, Okeechobee, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Collier, Hendry, Broward, Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties. The Nature Conservancy began the Python Patrol in 2008 to help prevent the spread of snakes out of Everglades National Park and into the Florida Keys where one had been discovered after feeding on an endangered Key Largo wood rat. People who work outside for a living were encouraged to call in sightings and trained responders up and down the Keys captured the intruders. Now the program is being implemented across the southern part of the state. Pythons eat a wide range of wildlife species, including birds, mammals and alligators up to 4 feet long. University of Florida scientists studying Florida’s largest snake found to date, said its size would allow it to eat most anything. “By capturing snakes in the counties on the edges of the major infestation in the park we may be able to stop the spread and prevent new breeding. And by capturing them in the park we hope to suppress the population,” Ms. Millett said. Sightings can be led on-line at IveGot1.org as well. There is also an iPhone App available through iTunes called IveGot1 that was developed by the University of Georgia. The phone number and web site are open for reports of all invaders, including sh. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is partnering with the Conservancy to respond to reports. And wildlife of cers continue to be trained to properly capture and bag snakes. “We encourage everyone to become more familiar with distinguishing invasive from native reptiles by taking the free online REDDy training offered by the University of Florida,” Ms. Millett said. Online REDDy training is at http://ufwildlife.ifas.u .edu/ reddy.shtml and offers a certi cate at end of the 40-minute free training, plus ID and reporting handouts.

Call 2-1-1 system for updates during a stormThe Glades County Emergency Management Department is keeping a close watch on Tropical Storm Isaac and encouraging area residents to be prepared. “We are encouraging residents to check their supplies and make sure they have what they need before the storm hits,” said Angela Snow Colegrove, director of emergency management. It’s a particular problem in Moore Haven, w hich no longer has a grocery store. Residents can’t just run out at the last minute for supplies. As the storm approaches, residents should watch television or listen to the radio for updates, she advised. If a storm hits, the 2-1-1 telephone system will also be activated. “If something does hit, we will keep the 2-1-1 system updated with information on things like shelter openings and evacuations,” Ms. Colegrove explained. If the county opens shelters, several factors determine which shelters to open and when. All shelters may not open. So residents should check on shelter openings before they leave their homes. Residents can call 2-1-1 from their cell phones and ask for updates for Glades County. The 2-1-1 operators can also answer help with other emergency information. Glades County residents who are online can also follow updates on the Glades County Emergency Management page on facebook or follow Glades County EM on twitter. Ms. Colegrove advises residents to make sure they have a car charger for their cell phones in case the electricity goes out. For those who have land lines at home, she advises getting a phone that does not require electricity. In 2004 and 2005 when hurricanes left the area without electricity, oldfashioned telephone “land line” phones that just plug into the phone jack worked even when the cell towers went out. But portable phones that require a base that plugs in to an electric socket will not work when the power is out. “After Tropical Storm Faye, we were out of power for a week, and some areas of the county were out of power for two weeks,” she said. “Make sure your gas tank is full and you have cash for the weekend,” she cautioned. If the power is out, the ATMs might not work.Emergency suppliesThere are six basics you should stock in your home: water, food, rst aid supplies, clothing and bedding, tools and emergency supplies and special items.  Water store at least three day supply of one gallon per person per day.  Food Store at least a three day supply of non-perishable food. If you must heat food, pack a can of sterno. Make sure you have a manual can opener to use in case the power is out.  First Aid Kit Assemble a rst aid kit for you home and one for each car. Sanitation supplies include: toilet papers, towelettes, soap, liquid detergent, personal Hygiene items, plastic garbage bags and ties, disinfectant, chlorine bleach. An emergency kit should include at least one complete change of clothing and footwear per person. It will also be helpful to have sturdy shoes or work boots, rain gear, blankets and/or sleeping bags, hat and gloves and sun glasses. Remember family members with special needs, such as infants, elderly, or disabled persons. For babies: have a stock of formula, diapers, bottles and medications. For adults: check on supplies of heart and high blood pressure medication, insulin, prescription drugs, denture needs, contact lens and supplies and extra eye glasses. Keep important family documents in a waterproof, portable container. These documents may include: will, insurance policies, contracts, deeds, stocks and bonds. Passports, social security cards, immunization records, bank account numbers, credit card account numbers and companies, inventor y of valuable household goods, important telephone numbers, birth, marriage, and death certi cates.

Glades County students returned to school this week. The Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) once again will be on the minds of teachers and students. The latest version of the FCAT is considered to be more dif cult that earlier versions, raising the bar for student progress. How would y ou do on the test? Parents are not permitted to see their child's actual FCAT 2.0 assessment because FCAT 2.0 questions are reused on future assessments. Allowing the general public to review the tests would inv alidate them, thereby depleting the supply of test questions for future test administrations.

WE DO NOT SELL INSURANCE OR REPRESENT ANY INSURANCE ENTITY. 20 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 23, 2012 Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Leonard BryantBoard members for Save Our Creeks include (from left to right) Ray Freeman, Ann Coffey, Rhonda Roff, Dave McCarthy, Paula House, Nicole Williams, Liz Donley, Carole Fields and Erica Lynne. These agencies are designed to immediately mobilize to provide assistance and investigative resources to the lead law enforcement agency when a child under the age of 19 goes missing under suspicious circumstances. Members of the Fort Myers team conducted a mock exercise in Sarasota on Feb. 23 that led to their certi cation. In that exercise, team members were tested in their communication capabilities, leads tracking systems, command post operations and search and rescue efforts. Other resources used in the exercise included command posts, K-9s, air support and crime scene. The point of the exercise was to successfully recover a 12-year-old girl who had been abducted from her bus stop. As a result of their efforts law enforcement personnel, as well as civilian team members, safely recovered the child. The CART program began in 2005 as a result of the abduction of 11-year-old Carlie Brucia in Sarasota in February of 2004. That abduction ended in the child's death. Florida's CART went nationwide when the U.S. Department of Justices' Of ce of Justice Programs (OJP) modi ed the program so that it could be utilized by other states. OJP's nationwide development of the program builds on the AMBER Alert program. The Florida AMBER plan is designed to broadcast critical information regarding a missing or abducted child that is thought to be in danger. This information is disseminated by using the Emergency Alert System, Dynamic Message Signs and lottery machines. An AMBER Alert is not used for runaway or family abductions unless it has been determined that the child's life is in immediate danger. CARTContinued From Page 1 history of Fort Senter on Fisheating Creek. An update was given about the ongoing lawsuit by Save Our Creeks to stop the back lling of the channel of Fisheating Creek. The new Board members have a challenging job of working with lawyers from Earthjustice against the proposed plan by Florida Fish and Wildlife, the Corps of Engineers and others to back ll Fisheating Creek. The back ll would erase any "preferential channel" through Cowbone Marsh. The creek has already been dammed by them, and this action is a further attempt to gain control of the Fisheating Creek waters. Save Our Creeks is adamantly opposed to any intervention that alters the historic channel. The public was not made aware or allowed to listen or participate in the plans to alter Fisheating Creek in these ways, and a lawsuit by Save Our Creeks is underway for Sunshine Law and other violations. The creek was awarded to the public as a navigable waterway after ve years of litigation by the State against Lykes Brothers nearly 20 years ago. For reasons unknown, state of ces and others are ignoring the designation and planning to build roads into this area that will carry dump trucks loaded with sand to back ll Cowbone Marsh areas. Save Our Creeks is a non-pro t organization made up of interested citizens, groups and other organizations or agencies devoted to the general purpose of conservation of the natural resources of the State of Florida. Speci cally the purposes are to conserve, maintain and protect the waters, air, soil, wildlife, historic and architecturally signi cant structures, ora and fauna and other natural resources of Southwest Florida, the state of Florida and the United States of America. They're committed to the research, study or management of appropriate resources, to the promotion and the dissemination of educational and scienti c information pertinent to the preservations, protection and enhancement of those resources, and the cooperation and engagement with all having the same or similar objectives. CREEKContinued From Page 1 The Hillsborough County Lost and Found Pet Project is hoping to nd the owner of dog found by a truck driver in the Lake Okeechobee area. "This dog came into the Lost and Found Pet Project brought to our facility by a trucker who found him coming out of the woods in an area close to Lake Okeechobee," explained Nancy Latimer in an email. "I received the information second hand from a shelter worker who was working intake that day. They didn't accept the dog, and suggested that the trucker keep the dog and take it back to the county in which he found it and surrender it to the local animal control there so the owner would have a better chance of nding the dog. He must have agreed as he took the dog," she continued. A day later, the dog was brought back to the shelter by someone else. He was brought in on Aug. 14. "II think this pup is a Catahoula/boxer/pit mix. He is an intact male and looks to be in decent shape. "We are a shelter that euthanizes and if no adopter or rescue comes forward, the outcome for this pup may not be good," she added. For more information, conatct Nancy Latimer at 813-610-5883 or go online to www.friendsofhcas.org.
