High water levels have prompted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to issue an executive order temporarily restricting public access to portions of the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area. This action is necessary because high water levels force area wildlife to take refuge on tree islands and levees, resulting in increased levels of stress for these animals. Effective immediately, the order prohibits vehicles, airboats, ATVs and other means of public access to the Everglades and Francis S. Taylor Wildlife Management Area. This area lies in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Access to Conservation Area 2A from the L-35B levee north to the east-west airboat trail is still permitted. The order also prohibits the taking of game. However, this order does not apply to people permitted to participate in the statewide alligator and migratory bird hunts, to frogging, or to people operating boats within the established canal systems and within one mile of marshes adjacent to canals within the wildlife management area. Boaters must maintain a minimum distance of 100 yards from any tree island or levee when operating a vessel or airboat to minimize disturbance to upland wildlife. These special regulations remain in effect until rescinded by a subsequent executive order. To report a violation of this order, or any sh and wildlife law violation, call the FWC's Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Florida Fall North American Migration Count (NAMC) will be held Sept. 15. The area of a count is not a circle, but the boundaries of a County. It's not too late to join a team or count from your home at any location in inland Florida during 7th Annual Hendry and Glades County NAMC. Additional volunteers are needed for the teams returning to Lakeport, STA5, Big Cypress Reservation and Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest. Over 124 bird species were reported by teams and individuals during the 2011 fall count including ve Northern Harriers. The Northern Harrier, known locally as the "Marsh Hawk," is an abundant wintering species throughout Florida. They usually breed in Canada, western and north western United States, Kentucky, West Virginia, and Virginia. Nests are built in dense vegetation on the ground where the breeding female incubates two to 10 eggs and cares for the young. The males provide most of the food for their mates and the nestlings. This medium-sized long-winged, long-tailed hawk has long slender rounded wings and a white rump. Northern Harriers rely on hearing as well as sight to capture prey. They have stiff feathers on their face to help transmit sound, and a pronounced owl-like facial disc. It is one of a few raptors in which the sexes look quite different. The adult male's back, hood and upper chest are light gray. Their chest, belly and underwings are white and often look like a "Gray Ghost" in ight. The adult female has a dark brown back and most feathers have tawny colored edges. The female's face is streaked brown and outlined by a white facial disk. Her chest and belly are dirty white and tan streaked. The underwings are barred white and dark brown. Juveniles are similar to the adult female, but they have a rusty wash across mostly unstreaked underparts. The Northern Harrier's courtship call is a series of "kek" or "ke" notes, but will also make piercing descending screams. Northern Harriers prefer open grasslands and marshes, where they are seen ying low with wings held in a slight "V" while rocking from side to side while foraging for food. Their diet consists mainly of small and medium-sized mammals and birds. You are invited to join a team or volunteer to count at your home during the Sept. 15 NAMC. Send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5birding@embarqmail.com to request information. If you would like to participate in a bird trip to STA5 e-mail Margaret England. Include your name and contact information including an emergency cell number, the date you want attend the STA5 trip, and the number of participants in your party. You may also leave this information at 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202. For a schedule of STA5 trips through December 2013 visit the HGAS website at www.hendrygladesaudubon.org.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 13, 2012 FCAT replaced with more testsThere is greatness in children that cannot be measured by a test, and yet, our state is intent on testing our students with an even more rigorous test than the FCAT by 2014. It was recently reported in the news that Florida’s schools will be phasing out the FCAT. What was not mentioned was that Florida is replacing the FCAT with an even more dif cult test in 2014, known as the PARCC test. This test is based on ‘common core’ standards that will be used across the U.S. by numerous, but not all, states. Florida has spent over fteen years creating our own standards and untold dollars revising and editing them to achieve perfection. All of this work, time and money have apparently been wasted. Students who struggled with the FCAT, will no doubt nd the PARCC test even more dif cult as it is an even more rigorous test. The move to common core standards is supposedly going to stop Florida teachers from “teaching to the test.” This phrase means that a teacher sees the test questions in advance and only teaches students to memorize the answers to those speci c questions. Since Florida teachers are strictly prohibited from seeing the FCAT in advance, this is impossible. Therefore, Florida teachers are not “teaching to the test.” However, we are constantly aware that our students will be tested and that their performance will affect their educational progress and our reputations as professionals. Indeed, we are continually trying to prepare our students to perform at optimal levels and trying to get them over arbitrarily set bars of achievement that have gone higher and higher since 1998. In addition, there is no discussion on the state level concerning the detrimental affects of school grades on economic development efforts. Businesses who need to attract professionals to an area realize that good schools are vital to recruiting employees, even more important than downtown revitalization projects and beauti cation attempts. What most Florida citizens don’t realize is that school grades are misleading. Often schools meet the federal guidelines that require every student to show a year’s academic growth, which in itself, is a worthwhile and dif cult task for which teachers and schools should be praised. However, Florida then adds to its grading criteria the number of students tested, the dropout rate, and whether or not students performed at the ‘randomly’ placed level of achievement each year with no consideration of where the individual student’s achievement level was at the beginning of the year. Man y people also do not realize that ALL students’ scores are now calculated in school grades. So even test scores of students with documented learning disabilities and speakers o f other languages are used to calculate school grades. School grades are undermining economic development in Florida and are misleading the public about the condition o f their local schools. Please join me and ght for our children and against ALL high-stakes testing in our schools. Children, teachers and schools are more than test scores. Parents from throughout the world strive to get their children into American universities and schools because they realize our educational system does more than create robotic test takers. America’s schools always have and always will produce creative problem-solving citizens, IF teachers are once again allowed to teach students the joy of and the importance o f learning and are once again able to create authentic learning situations, instead of constantly preparing for the ‘all-important’ high stakes test, whatever its name may be at the time. Crystal Drake Conservative Democratic Candidate for Florida House of Representatives – District #55, which includes Highlands, Okeechobee, Glades & the western portion of St. Lucie Counties Letters to the editor VAContinued From Page 1 of our battle eld exposures on our children in the face of overwhelming evidence connecting many diseases and birth defects to exposure to Agent Orange in Vietnam,” said Tom Hall, Agent Orange Committee Chair and coordinator of the VVA Agent Orange Town Hall meeting for Vietnam Veterans of America, Florida State Council. “We encourage all Vietnam veterans with children and/or grandchildren suffering from illnesses, learning disabilities or physical disabilities to come share their stories. We will explore issues surrounding Agent Orange exposure, including scienti c information, health effects and methods for educating the public and elected representatives about the issues of Vietnam veterans, their children and their families,” said Mr, Hall. The goal of the town hall meeting is to bring attention to the hidden cost of our service and to encourage the government to create and maintain a registry of these birth defects as well as assist our doctors in nding ways to diagnose and treat these birth defects. Veterans of all wars are subjected to many contaminates and most were not aware of what was being used or what effects most would have on their health. Said Mr. Hall, “Our children and grandchildren are innocent victims of our war and need the help of our government to cope with these problems. We worry, who will be there to take care of them when we are gone?” In keeping with VVA’s founding principle, “Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.” Vietnam veterans throughout the state of Florida continue to ght for the welfare of our nation’s veterans from all wars.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 13, 2012 BY MARK KINGLake Okeechobee is back with plenty of water and bass moving into the grass, where catching them is a lot easier than shing out on the main lake for roaming bass. The rains from hurricane Isaac have lled the lake up to 14.78 feet above sea level and water is still owing in. We are at a great level right now and don't want much more, because too much water will kill all of the grass. If we keep the water at the level it is now we will go into our winter season with just the right amount of water to allow us to sh almost anywhere on the lake. The water has also been very clear in most areas, which makes the shing better. There have also been a lot of bass being caught: one over nine pounds and one over ten pounds were caught, which would be giants during the spawn. This may be one of the best years for shing on Okeechobee that Clewiston has had in many years, with huge numbers of bass and some big hawgs caught, both during tournaments and by guide clients. I can't wait to get busy guiding everyday because I know it is going to be a great year catching bass and making folks really happy by putting some monster bass in the boat. I have been catching bass from up on the shoal above Turners Cove down to Kramer Island, mostly on the outside grass line, but on some occasions moving back in the grass quite a ways. I have been throwing the Gambler Big EZ swimbait and also pitching a Gambler Flappy Daddy and Fat Ace to the isolated reed heads. Moving back in the grass is the time to get those heavy action rods and braided line backs out if you want to catch and put bass in the boat here on Okeechobee. I use at least fty pound test braided line and move all the way up to eighty pound test during shing tournaments. For rods, a heavy to extra heavy action rod, at least seven feet long, works best. I like to use a 7'6" or 7'11" rod and my new Halo Twilite series rods (www. halofishing. com) are just the ticket for getting monster Okeechobee bass out of the grass. I would like to let all of my past clients know that now is the time to make plans to come back to Lake Okeechobee. For anybody thinking about making a trip to our lake, this will be the year to catch numbers and big bass. I have now added a bay boat to my guide service and will be able to accommodate families and groups of up to ve people, and of course I will be using my Ranger bass boat for parties of up to three people. Good luck, tight lines, and I hope to see everyone out on the water soon.

The CDC has received reports of 1,993 cases of West Nile virus disease in people, including 87 deaths. Over 70 percent of the cases have been reported from six states (Texas, South Dakota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Louisiana, and Michigan). A total of 28 cases have been reported in Florida this year (Duval, Escambia, Hillsborough, and Okaloosa counties). At this time, no cases have been reported in Hendry and Glades counties. Symptoms of West Nile Virus People typically develop symptoms of WNV between 3 and 14 days after being bitten by an infected mosquito. Symptoms may include fever, headache, and body aches, nausea, vomiting, and sometimes swollen lymph glands or a skin rash on the chest, stomach and back. Symptoms can last for as short as a few days, though even healthy people have become sick for several weeks. Eighty percent of people (about 4 out of 5) infected with WNV will not show any symptoms at all. Some people infected with WNV may develop severe illness. Severe symptoms can include high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, coma, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. Talk with your healthcare provider if you have concerns or show symptoms of WNV.Prevention is KeyBeing outside means you’re at risk. Pay attention to avoiding mosquito bites if you spend a lot of time working or playing outside. Everyone can take basic precautions to avoid getting mosquito bites by following the recommendations of the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments in the “Drain and Cover” prevention message listed below.Drain and Cover To prevent mosquitoes from living and multiplying around your home or business: DRAIN standing water: Drain water from garbage cans, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, owerpots or any other containers where sprinkler or rainwater has collected. Discarded old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren’t being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pet’s water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated and empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. Cover your skin with: Clothing If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. Repellent Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with 10-30% DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than 2 months old. Cover doors and windows with screens: Keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios.

Governor Rick Scott announces that the Florida Department of Environmental Protection issued nal permits and consent orders to the South Florida Water Management District authorizing the operation and maintenance of existing stormwater treatment areas and requiring the construction and operation of treatment area expansions and water storage features as part of the historic plan designed to improve water quality in the Everglades. DEP Secretary Herschel T. V inyard, Jr. signed the permits Monday, following a 21-day administrative period. "This plan is an historic step forward in restoring America's Everglades," said Governor Scott. "This plan will result in signi cant water quality improvements to the Everglades without raising or creating new costs for Floridians." Last October, Governor Scott directed Secretary Vinyard and South Florida Water Management District Executive Director Melissa L. Meeker to work collaboratively with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to expand water quality improvement projects necessary to achieve the ultra-low state water quality standard established for the Everglades. "Governor Scott made this historic plan a priority. And because of his leadership, we are addressing a long-standing environmental problem," Vinyard said. "In less than a year, Florida developed an economically feasible plan that sets us on a landmark path to solve water quality issues in the Everglades." This plan to improve water quality builds upon Florida's $1.8 billion investment in Everglades water quality improvements to achieve the 10 parts per billion ambient water quality standard for the Everglades Protection Area. The schedule for implementing new projects balances economic realities with engineering, permitting, science and construction limitations. The plan proposes to utilize a combination of state and district revenues to complete the projects. After the Department was noti ed in June by EPA that a proposed National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit and associated consent order satis ed EPA's previous objections, the Department began the administrative process to issue both a federal National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit and a state Everglades Forever Act permit w ith associated consent orders. On Aug. 9, water management district staff presented the projects to the district's Governing Board, which approved the projects, paving the way for the 21-day period, w hich ended Thursday. During that period, parties had the option of petitioning the permits. The Department's permits and consent orders include milestones for project completion, as well as enforcement mechanisms to ensure the milestones are met. The plan calls for 6,500 acres of state-of-the-art stormwater treatment areas and close to 110,000 acre-feet of associated w ater storage. Core project components will be designed, constructed and operational within six y ears. "This step is an important milestone in our signi cant and unprecedented progress to restore the Everglades. The South Florida Water Management District is grateful for Governor Scott's leadership in setting us on a clear path toward resolution of this decades-long water quality challenge," Meeker said. "With a science-based plan and state oversight, the District is well positioned to construct this comprehensive suite of remedies that promises to bring lasting protection to America's Everglades." Highlights of the water quality improvement strategies include: State-issued and enforceable Everglades Forever Act and Clean Water Act permits, including stringent discharge limits, for each of the District's stormwater treatment areas. Design, construction and completion of 90 percent (99,000 acrefeet) of the required associated storage within four years. Capable of storing 32 billion gallons of water, storage areas known as Flow Equalization Basins will be located adjacent to existing stormwater treatment areas in the Everglades. This advanced combination of "green" technologies will better optimize water deliveries to new and existing treatment facilities, allowing water managers to treat runoff to extremely low levels of phosphorus. Doubling the size of Stormwater Treatment Area 1-West adjacent to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. The District will construct 4,700 acres of additional treatment by 2018 and start construction on another 1,800 acres that same year. This expansion spanning ten square miles will increase by 50 percent the treatment capacity of water quality facilities currently discharging into the refuge.

She was charged with the felonies of child neglect, traf cking in a controlled substance and operating a drug house. Her bond was set at $100,000. Sheriff Whiddon said Frank and Sara Lopez are husband and wife and Katheryn is their daughter. He said their arrests surprised him somewhat. “I was a little taken back by it,” he said. “We made multiple buys it wasn’t a uke. It was just whoever happened to be in the house when we showed up.” A GCSO detective close to the operation said there were ve children, ages 1 to 15, in the home when they made buys in the Lopez family. The children have been turned over to the Department of Children and Families (DCF). “We made a couple of buys from Mr. Lopez. When we went to do another deal and he wasn’t home, Mrs. Lopez and Ms. Lopez sold 50 percocets,” said the detective. “All of the sales were in their home.” Apparently the Lopez family had valid prescriptions for hydrocodone and other pills. They were reportedly selling the pills to “make ends meet,” said the detective. A search warrant was served on their Saddle Lane home Tuesday and several empty pill bottles were found. As for Ware, Sheriff Whiddon said he was out of jail on bond at the time of his arrest Tuesday. Jail records show that Ware was booked into the jail Jan. 20 on felony charges of burglary with an assault or battery and false imprisonment of an adult. He was also charged with battery, a misdemeanor. His bond on those charges was set at $51,000. “We started doing business and he was slinging dope and we fell right in with him,” said the sheriff. “It’s too bad. I’ve known the kid since high school.” A search warrant was also executed on Ware’s home Tuesday. During that search 5 to 6 grams of powder cocaine and some oxycodone pills were found, said the detective. Other than the Lopez family, none o f those arrested in this operation had valid prescription for the pills they were selling, the detective added. Despite the arrests this investigation is continuing. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Medical and Dental services are available by our professional health care team1021 Health Park Drive, Moore Haven, FL 33471(Located in the Glades County Health Dept.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers will close additional sections of the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail while maintenance and rehabilitation work continues on the Herbert Hoover Dike. On Monday, Sept. 10, the Corps closed the section of trail between Clewiston and South Bay to facilitate delivery of stone used for shoring up the dike in emergency situations. This closure will only be in effect during the work week; the trail will be open on weekends and holidays at this location. In addition to this new closure, the trail remains closed between Lakeport and Moore Haven for trail improvements, between Moore Haven and Uncle Joe’s Fish Camp/ Liberty Point to accommodate replacement of Culverts 1 and 1A, and between Belle Glade and Port Mayaca for replacement of Culverts 11 and 16, as well as cutoff wall construction in the dike itself. Contractors are using heavy construction vehicles and large equipment within all of these areas. Truck traf c on the roads is a constant ow, and any additional traf c on the narrow trail or dike crest poses a safety hazard for recreationists and equipment operators. “We recognize the inconvenience caused by these additional closures,” said Robert Schnell, assistant chief of the Corps’ South Florida Operations Of ce (SFOO) in Clewiston, “however, safety for our workers and the general public is something we take very seriously. We want to keep people out of harm’s way.” For additional information, please visit the Jacksonville District website at www.saj. usace.army.mil. Corps closes sections of Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 13, 2012 By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County Democrat The Glades County Board of County Commissioners approved a resolution to request assistance from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to control nuisance alligators in Glades County when they held their regular meeting on Tuesday at the Court House in Moore Haven. Commissioner Russell Echols suggested the county work with the state because of a constant problem of alligators. An alligator took the arm of a Moore Haven teenager, 17-year-old Kaleb ‘Fred’ Langdale while he w as swimming in the Caloosahatchee River in July. The resolution supports and encourages the FWC to take the necessary steps to immediately remove nuisance alligators from Glades County waterways. The City of Moore Haven wants to establish a nuisance alligator targeted harvest area on the river from Lake Hicopochee to the locks which includes the spillway with the bridge. Alligators six feet and longer would be targeted. In other actions, the board approved an agreement with the Florida Department of Transportation to use $158,000 in local impact fees to resurface a portion of State Road 78 from the Herbert Hoover Dike to Canal Boat Ramp. The work will include intersection capacity enhancements, travel lane widening and shoulder widening. The commission also selected rms to handle the construction management of the proposed Emergency Operations Center. Architects Design Group was selected to provide professional architectural services for the project. The State legislature recently approved a $5 million grant for this project. The commission authorized County Manager Wendell Taylor to negotiate contracts with the top-ranked contractor and architect and present that to the board at a future date. In other business, the board approved a $185,507 bid to construct a new community center in Washington Park. The board also agreed to apply for a State Aid to Libraries grant. They also approved an inter-local agreement with Hardee County to collect hazardous waste. The board also considered the expenditure of $77,000 for improvements planned at the Harney Pond Park. The county would like to build a 40 x 44 foot pavilion, a handicapped boat ramp, place covers on existing picnic tables, and install a water line and renovate existing restrooms. Commissioner Paul Beck said he’s like to provide additional infrastructure and electric lines for future growth. “Since we had the canal cleaned out, there has been an increase in traf c there. As the bike path is completed around the lake, more visitors will come to Lakeport,” he suggested. The money would come from the county 1-cent sales tax fund for capital improvements. Commissioner Donna Storter expressed concern over the costs and wanted to have other quotes and price estimates to make sure the county received a good deal. No ofcial action was taken. Dr. Margaret Banion of Florida Gulf Coast University discussed a county-wide strategic plan and the industrial park located near U.S. 27 and 78 in Moore Haven. Key decisions to be made are the uses the county would support in the facility like heavy industrial, light industrial or an of ce park. County Attorney Richard Pringle said the goal is to discuss and focus on the steps of a strategic plan process to have the commission and citizens establish the plan. “They should be the decision makers not us,” he added. “It is not something that happens overnight or something you pull out of a book.” He said Glades County is unique and has several major projects in the works that might have signi cant impacts on the community, which include the proposed Inland Port known as the Inter-model Logistics Center. “Strategic plans become very important because you refer back to it as you move forward into the future. There is a tendency to get side tracked. A strategic plan allows you to remember the main plan of the county,” he added. He advocated a formal agreement to allow FGCU to act as facilitator of the strategic plan process on the land owned by the county. The estimated cost is $10,000. Chairman Butch Jones said he felt it was imperative that the county proceed quickly. Commissioner Long said the county has two parcels to consider which includes the site of the proposed EOC. She said if the county has to expand facilities to serve the needs of the county they must consider both parcels. “We only have 50 acres left on the one parcel as 22 acres was leased to the Detention Center and part has to be mitigated. If we have more acreage at the second site for our own use, we need to consider both parcels, sometimes you can’t afford not to do something. If you fail to plan you plan to fail.” Mr. Pringle said rst the 20 acres near the jail will be studied with the completion date by Sept. 31. This is located adjacent to the proposed Inland Port. Commissioner Echols said this will give the county a chance to see how well the y work with FGCU. He said if things work well they can move on to other study areas. The agreement was approved in a (4-0) vote. The commission also considered a ne w climate controlled meeting room of approximately 600 square feet in the old Fire House at Indian Hills. The estimated cost is $17,360. Commissioner Echols said he’d rather see projects completed before the board moved on to new projects. Planning Director Larr y Hilton was directed to solicit a couple estimates from contractors and those quotes could be considered at the next commission meeting on Sept. 24. The county has $30,000 budgeted for improvements to the South Glades Community Center. The United Way of South West Florid a approached Glades County to lease a facilit y in Moore Haven. They need a small conference room, reception area and six of ces. They expressed interest in the old health department building. The cost of renovation is about $150,000 and the county lease would not recoup that investment for as many as 10 years. Another option is leasing space in the Doyle Conner Building. Commissioner Bob Giesler was absent from the meeting. County asks FWC for help with alligators 13 beginning at 10 a.m. Individuals must be present to receive a permit. Permittees will be allowed to take wild hogs with no size or bag limit. The use of dogs is prohibited. Firearms will be limited to a shotgun with #1 buckshot or larger.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will hold a public workshop in Clewiston to discuss possible boating-restricted-area changes for the Okeechobee Waterway in Hendry County. The amendments to rule 68D-24.011, Florida Administrative Code, are proposed to expand the existing idle-speed, no-wake zone in the Okeechobee Waterway by 300 feet to better protect boat loading and unloading at the Hoover Dike Road City Ramp. Other proposed amendments include updating the rule maps and other minor technical changes to the rule language. The workshop will be on Wednesday, Sept. 19, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., at the John Boy Auditorium, 1200 South W.C. Owens Ave. in Clewiston. To obtain copies of the meeting agenda prior to the workshop, visit MyFWC.com/Boating and look up “Workshops” under the heading “Waterway Management.” Additional information will be posted as it becomes available. Anyone requiring special accommodations to participate in the workshop should advise the FWC at least ve days before the meeting by contacting the FWC’s Of ce of Human Resources at 850-488-6411. If you are hearingor speech-impaired, contact the FWC using the Florida Relay Service at 800-9558771 (TDD) or 800-955-8770 (voice). FWC Announces Workshop for Okeechobee Waterway Boating A team of University of Florida and Miami Dade College faculty members has won a ve-year, $1.7 million federal grant to expand a distance-education program enabling MDC students to earn a bachelor’s degree in microbiology from UF. The grant was announced in August by the National Science Foundation’s Division of Undergraduate Education. The grant is part of an NSF effort to increase the number of science, technology, engineering and mathematics graduates, known as the STEM Talent Expansion Program. “We believe this program will allow students to become science graduates who otherwise would be unable to do so for nancial or cultural reasons,” said Eric Triplett, principal investigator for the grant and chairman of UF’s microbiology and cell science department, part of the Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. “This is one of the very few science degrees available by distance education anywhere in the U.S. from a top research university.” Launched last fall, the program is aimed at students from minority groups traditionally underrepresented in STEM disciplines. It’s based at MDC’s North Campus, where 90 percent of students are Hispanic or African-American. With the distance-ed option, students can attend UF without relocating to Gainesville, thereby reducing expenses and enabling students to maintain employment and personal responsibilities. These factors could improve retention, said Jennifer Drew, an instructor with the UF microbiology and cell science department and a co-principal investigator. Drew said the funding will help of cials at both institutions improve the existing program by offering new features that may improve retention: scholarships, peer-to-peer tutoring, career mentoring and undergraduate research experiences. Lecture classes are taught online, but students will do their lab work in person at MDC or one of several UF facilities in South Florida. The program is open to all students, regardless of ethnicity, who have received an associate of arts degree from MDC and earned minimum grades in prerequisite courses. Beginning next fall, UF plans to offer a similar distance-ed program at community colleges across the state, Triplett said. At MDC, of cials look forward to the opportunities the grant presents, said Heather Belmont, dean of the School of Science. “MDC and its School of Science are truly excited about NSF’s support of this innovative new way to attract more students into quality science programming,” Belmont said. “We look forward to working closely with UF to promote this partnership.” $1.7 Million Grant to Help Minority Students Earn Microbiology Degrees PHOTO / UFEric Triplett, chairman of the University of Florida’s microbiology and cell science department, poses in his laboratory in this le photo. Triplett led a team of researchers from UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and Miami Dade College that secured a ve-year, $1.7 million federal grant to expand a distance education program that enables students to earn bachelors’ degrees in microbiology from UF without relocating to Gainesville.
