Page 13 Conservationists sue to protect public’s right to boat and sh on Fisheating CreekTALLAHASSEE—Earthjustice has led a suit against the Florida Department of Environmental Protection claiming the agenc y is pursuing a plan which would cut off the public’s boating access to part of Fisheating Creek in Glades County. According to an Earthjustice press release, the state’s plan is to use taxpayer money to build roads through wetlands so that 50 million pounds of sand can be dumped into Fisheating Creek, permanently blocking the public’s navigation channel. Lykes Brothers owns most of the land on both sides of the creek. “It’s scandalous,” said Earthjustice attorney David Guest. “Fifteen years ago, the state won a jury verdict barring Lykes from blocking the public from boating on the creek, and now Lykes has convinced the state to spend $3 million worth of taxpayer mone y to ll a two-mile stretch of the navigation channel with sand.” Tuesday’s legal ling is the latest in 23 years of legal disputes involving conservationists and Lykes Brothers over the public’s right to sh and boat on Fisheating Creek. The creek is a major tributary of Lake Okeechobee, a wild and scenic waterwa y which courses through prairie, cypress swamps, and marshes one of which is known locally as Cowbone Marsh.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 4, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Common Ground-Dove is about the size of a Song Sparrow. These small doves are common in the Southern United States from California to Florida as well as Central America, Ecuador and Brazil. Because they nest and feed mainly on the ground, their main defense from predation from animals and birds is their ability to hide in clumps of dense vegetation or blend into the dusty ground. These sandy brown doves have short round wings and short tails. Their thin bills are pinkish-red with a dark tip. They shuf e as they walk on their short legs. Males have a pinkish w ash on their head, neck and chest and a bluish crown. Females have duller plumage than males, but both sexes have dark scaling on their necks and chest. The oldest recorded Common GroundDove lived to be seven years and two months old. Their calls include sequences of high-pitched coos and guttural squawks. When they take off in ight, their wings make whirring and whistling sounds which are probably produced by a notched seventh primary feather. Common Ground-Doves are found throughout Florida in a variety of habitats that include woodlands, agricultural land, sandy roads and residential areas. These doves are frequently seen on the ground or at backyard bird feeders foraging for food. Their diet consists of small seeds, grains, small berries, and insects. It is estimated that they eat more than 2,500 seeds every day and can store hundreds of seeds in their two-lobed crop. They also eat snail shells which are thought to replenish the calcium devoted to producing eggs and crop-milk during nesting. Common Ground-Doves have been reported nesting almost year round and will raise up to four broods per season. The breeding pair spends "minimal time" building nests that are up to three inches across and less than half an inch deep. Ground nests are slight depressions in the ground lined with grasses, weeds, palm bers, or pine needles. A nest placed in a tree or shrub is a imsy structure of twigs and pine needles which is usually within six feet of the ground. The female lays two white eggs which are incubated for 12 to 14 days. Both parents produce a secretion from their esophagus, known as crop milk, to feed to the young who edge at 14 to 16 days of age.

University of Florida scientists are researching a natural herbicide that could be used in traditional and organic farming. The herbicide, a chemical called thaxtomin, occurs naturally in Streptomyces bacteria that cause potato scab, a major disease of potatoes worldwide. A study describing a key step in the process that could lead to its commercial production is published in the current issue of the journal Nature Chemical Biology. Rosemary Loria, a professor and chair of the UF/IFAS plant pathology department, is a co-author of the publication. She worked on the study while at Cornell University and has continued the research since joining UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in 2011. In the study, the researchers describe an enzyme in the bacteria that is essential to producing the herbicide and showed that without the enzyme, thaxtomin production doesn’t occur. This is important, Loria said, as it could allow researchers to increase the amount of thaxtomin the bacteria produces, which must happen for the herbicide to become commercially viable. “So we could within the next couple of years be able to create a strain of bacteria that would produce much higher levels of thaxtomin than the natural strains produce and that will assist in getting thaxtomin onto the market,” Loria said. Thaxtomin works as an herbicide by causing the abnormal growth of plant cell walls. Loria said the chemical could be used as a preemergence herbicide to kill weeds when they are just starting to sprout and most vulnerable to thaxtomin. And since it is a natural herbicide produced from bacteria rather than one created in a lab, it can be used on organic farms, she said. Study co-author Evan Johnson was on the research team with Loria at Cornell and is now a plant pathology postdoctoral associate at the UF/IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred. He said advantages natural herbicides offer over lab-synthesized herbicides include more speci c targeting of the organisms they control and faster breakdown in the soil. “Because it’s naturally produced in the soil, it can generally be broken down more easily by organisms in the area,” Johnson said. “It’s something that the organisms in the soil that break down organic matter are used to seeing.” Other study authors were Sarah M. Barry, of King’s College London’s department of chemistry, school of biomedical sciences; Johan A. Kers, of the industrial products division of Intrexon Corporation in San Carlos, Calif.; Lijiang Song, Philip R. Aston and Gregory L.

This will be the start of the 21st annual hike around Lake Okeechobee on the Herbert Hoover Dike, 35 feet above the surrounding countryside. Hikers assemble at the Pahokee Marina ready to take the rst step at 8 a.m., heading north for a nine day, 110 mile trek. However, it’s not as dif cult as it seems. The hike is actuality a series of one day hikes and participants can join or leave the other hikers at any trail head around Lake Okeechobee. Popular hikes are the rst day, a 3.5-mile “Wimp Walk” around Pahokee, and the full day, 12 mile walk to Port Mayaca. Hikers are shuttled back to the day’s starting point. There is no charge for the hike, and anyone is welcome to join the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association in this, what is believed to be the longest running long distance hike in Florida. In recent years, participants completing the entire hike have ranged in age from 9 to 92 years old. Anyone in reasonably good health is welcome to join us in enjoying the outdoors and making new friends. Campgrounds or motels and meals for those requiring them are at the hiker’s expense.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 IMPORTANT LETTER TO ALL HENDRY COUNTY TAXPAYERSLast week, Robert H. Buker, Jr., President and CEO of United States Sugar Corporation, attacked me with a political advertisement. He falsely accused me of raising taxesŽ (whose, he doesnt say, but it isnt hard to guess) and being a job killer.Ž Heres what Mr. Buker is upset about. My predecessor, and opponent in this election, cut a Sweet DealŽ with Big Sugar in 2004 that gives them a property tax break enjoyed by NO other taxpayer in Hendry County. FOREVER. I dont think thats fair or r ight. You wont “nd the deal she cut anywhere in the public records. That agreement has no ending date. U.S. Sugar thinks it should apply now, and I dont. It is wrong for the Property Appraiser to let a taxpayer set its own assessment, and I just wont do it. Once I found out about the deal, I took prompt steps to assess the property of U.S. Sugar on the same basis as every other taxpayer in Hendry County market value. You have told me that I have accomplished this goal with regard to your property, beca use only 22 taxpayers out of 36,000+ parcels in the county asked the Value Adjustment Board to review their assessed values. My do or has always been open to you and if you think your assessment is too high, I want to talk to you about it. Last year, I assessed U.S. Sugars property at a very conservative market value, which was millions of dollars higher than the bogus formula contained in the Sweet Deal. They appealed to the Value Adjustment Board, composed of two members of the County Commission, one member of the School Board and two citizen members. The Board said that until a Court nulli“es the contract, they have to honor it. That is the reason I “led suit against U.S. Sugar. This is the only suit I have “led since I have been honored to serve as your Property Appraiser. I dont blame Mr. Buker for taking every possible step to preserve his companys tax break. I am not afraid to stand up to him or his company. I am con“dent that the Court will say that a contract that requires an assessment at less than market value canno t stand. Will my opponent continue the “ght if she is elected? Why dont you call her and ask? Her telephone number is (863) 517-1258. If she says she intends to dismiss the suit against U.S. Sugar if she is elected, let her know how you feel about it. Please understand something clearly. I do not set your taxes. I and my professional staff determine the market value of the property. Thats it. We dont set that value, the market does. Any time you have a question about how your property is val ued, or why it is the amount it is, please call me or come to my of“ce. I have an open door policy and enjoy meeting the public, includ ing our business owners and even U.S. Sugar. Bottom line … when U.S. Sugar gets a tax break and doesnt pay its fair share, all other taxpayers in Hendry County … you and me … make up the difference. Mr. Buker said that the tax valuation I am proposing on U.S. Sugar is unwarranted, unjust, and unfair.Ž He calls it unfounde d and a radical tax increase.Ž None of that is true. I certainly understand that he does not want to have to pay more tax. Non e of us do. We all have to deal with hard times considering the state of the economy. I do not want U.S. Sugar to have any hardship, and I do not want them to potentially need to lay off employees. These are our friends and neighbors. They are hardworking people Any time U.S. Sugar feels its assessment is too high, I am more than glad to discuss it with them. The Florida Statutes govern my job. I have to apply the statutes evenhandedly to everyone. It would be too easy to let U.S. S ugar slide but it would be wrong. Thank you for the trust you have placed in me and my staff. My of“ce is your of“ce, and we are your employees. I pledge that we will continue to work hard for you. May God Bless you and your family, and our great County. Phillip L.

By Pete GawdaSpecial to the Glades County Democrat OKEECHOBEE -In Florida it is often either feast or famine when it comes to water. The Lake Coalition for Responsible Management of Lake Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Estuaries and Lake Worth Lagoon meeting in Okeechobee on Friday, Sept. 28, was concerned with the over abundance of water. Okeechobee County Commissioner Frank Irby informed the coalition that work continues on the Taylor Creek lock. However, completion of the project has been delayed because of the weather. He complimented w ater managers for getting the excess rainw ater that fell on the county from Tropical Storm Isaac into Lake Okeechobee. Some of the other coalition members w ere not so positive. Jason Bessey, representing St. Lucie County said, “We understand public safety trumps everything.” However, he went on to say that once the rehabilitation on the dike is completed, the lake could be held at a higher level eliminating the need for pulse discharges. Martin County Commissioner Sarah Heard contended that 500 millions gallons a day of “ lthy, polluted” water are being discharged form the lake into the St. Lucie Estuary. “We have some questions that need answers,” she said. She wondered why there were no discharges to the south. She said there were regulatory restrictions to the north and south of the lake but none to the east and west. She said polluted water from the north could be released in unlimited amounts to the estuary. “When are you going to dust off owway proposals?” she asked, referring to proposals to allow water to ow out of the south end of the lake into the Everglades. “Water is a valuable resource and we need to treat it with respect,” stated Lee County Commissioner Tammy Hall. She noted that Lee County has restricted water use in order to conserve water. She also complained of freshwater releases from the lake into the Caloosahatchee River and the ecological damage caused by the releases. “We need to hoard this water now as we move into the dry season,” asserted Hendry County Commissioner Carson Turner. He said the water being released from agricultural areas is dirty but it is not polluted because of best management practices. Federal lobbyist Fowler West of the rm Mercury/Clark & Weinstock reported to the board via Skype. “The outlook is clouded by what is going to happen in the election,” he said. “If there is a change in administration we will have to get acquainted with new appointees.” He said that could take up to a year. Glades County Commissioners Russell Echols said Glades County has received 16 inches of rain since Tropical Storm Isaac. He claimed that the water being backpumped into the lake is as clean or cleaner than lake water. “The problem is that nobody wants to complete projects,” he asserted. “Do something with the land that is productive.” Carl Neidrauer, chief engineer of the Water Control Operations Bureau of South Florida Water Management District said that district wide rainfall is above average and runoff continues to ow into Lake Okeechobee. He said that less than 4 percent of the total in ow into the lake during the eight-day period of Tropical Storm Isaac came from backpumping on the south end of the lake. He said that Corps of Engineers is releasing only a small amount of water compared to the amount authorized by the Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (LORS). Mr. Neidrauer said 1,500 cubic feet per second is being released to the Caloosahatchee while LORS authorizes 4,000 under the current conditions. He said that 23 percent of the total release is attributable to the lake and 77 percent from basin runoff. The St. Lucie Estuary is getting its rst pulse releases since October of 2010. It is receiving 900 cubic feet per second while 1,800 cubic feet per second are authorized. The lake portion of that amount is 11 percent. He said the high water is harmful for bulrush and that two sh kills have been reported this week that were most likely caused by lack of oxygen due to organic matter washed into the lake. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas M. Greco, Deputy District Commander of the Jacksonville District of the U.S. Army Corps o f Engineers (COE) explained the COE’s management philosophy of maintaining the lake level between 12.5 and 15.5 feet. He said the goal is to go into the wet season around 12.5 feet in order to have water storage space and reach 15.5 feet by the end of the wet season. He said that that range of depths would meet the most water user needs. The colonel said that when the lake rises to 17.25 the concern is for diminished storage capacity. Commissioner Echols wondered when the work on the dike would be completed enough to hold the lake at a higher level. Col. Greco said that after the dike rehabilitation was completed there would be a series of public meetings to consider revising the lake schedule. Commissioner Turner asked for a detailed accounting of the cost of dike rehabilitation and the construction schedule. Corey Lee, biologist for the Florida Freshwater Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said that LORS is concerned with the ecology of the lake. Paul Gray of Florida Audubon said that for the last ve years the lack of rain has had more to do with lower lake levels than LORS. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 NOTICE of REFERENDUM for the CITY OF CLEWISTON ENACTMENT OF A NEW AMENDED CLEWISTON CITY CHARTERThe Clewiston City Charter was last amended in 2008.

After several rounds of litigation by conservationists and the state, a jury concluded that Fisheating Creek is navigable, effectively ordering Lykes to stop blocking boaters from using the creek. Much of the dispute concerned whether there was an historic, navigable channel in the cypress swamps and marshes formerly used by boaters. In its ling on Tuesday in the state’s Div ision of Administrative Hearings, Earthjustice is representing Save Our Creeks and the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida. Those two groups were plaintiffs in the lengthy legal battle with Lykes that ended with a landmark victory for boaters’ rights in Florida. The current controversy resulted when Lykes claimed that the state was improperly handling a marsh channel restoration project, states the Earthjustic release. After intense lobbying, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection reversed itself and announced the plan to use $3 million in taxpayer money to build roads and “staging areas” across the marsh so that several hundred dump trucks can transport sand into the creek bed. According to the Cowbone Marsh Cut Restoration Plan published by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, “Cowbone Marsh is a freshwater marsh system located between open owway portions of Fisheating Creek in central Glades County and is contained within the 40-milelong, 18,272-acre Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area. The marsh transects Fisheating Creek eight miles upstream of the Creek’s mouth at the western shore of Lake Okeechobee. The marsh is located approximately six miles east of US27 and six miles west of SR78 near Lakeport. It is bordered by a cypress slough system upstream, and an open grassy alluvial system characterized by oxbows downstream. “In April 2010 to comply with the Settlement Agreement requirement to maintain and enhance navigation along Fisheating Creek, FWC utilized an Agitator to shred vegetation through Cowbone Marsh along the route depicted in the 1929 USACE survey map,” the plan states. “The state of Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and subsequently the USACE determined this work to be dredging and issued emergency orders to halt the work. The USACE referred enforcement to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In accordance with orders issued by these various agencies, FWC immediately constructed a temporary weir and has since constructed six check dams. “The FWC’s preferred restoration alternative was to reinforce and/or install additional check dams and allow the cut to re ll and re-vegetate naturally. However the check dams have required maintenance and have not satisfactorily addressed concerns related to a preferential ow path remaining within the marsh. Therefore, FWC has continued to work with USACE, EPA, DEP and SFWMD to develop methodologies to return the cut area to as close as pre-impact conditions as possible and practical by back lling,” the plan states. “The state’s plan is ridiculous,” said Rhonda Roff of Save Our Creeks. “Are they seriously thinking that the public will buy their argument that the best way to protect this wild and scenic waterway is to ll it in with 50 million pounds of sand?” “We think this is a political giveaway to the Lykes Brothers and a real snub to the public,” Ms. Roff said. “Maybe they didn’t think anyone was paying attention. The fact is, people have a legal right to use this waterway.” CREEKContinued From Page 1 Concern expressed over discharges from lake ACT offers servicesAbuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc. is a non-pro t agency serving victims of sexual assault and domestic violence in Hendry, Glades and Lee Counties.

Get anchored over your favorite arti cial reef in 70-plus feet of water and turn off everything in the boat that makes noise. You will hear a deafening chorus of clicks, snaps and pops being produced by millions of organisms that inhabit the reef. Turn off all the lights, and any movement in the water will cause an explosion of tiny lights produced by billions of tiny bioluminescent organisms. Drop a oating light over the side to bring the squid in so close that you can see them pulse with colors and patterns. Or just kick back and watch the curious sea turtles surface to investigate. Even if the sh don’t bite, you’re going to have an experience that you can’t get sitting on the couch, and you won’t be feeding the bugs or baking in the hot sun either. Fish that feed primarily at night have excellent vision, and they’re a lot smarter than those daytime feeders, so you don’t want to show them much. The key is to “go stealthy,” which is a phrase coined by my favorite yellow-perch catcher, Brian “Fishhead” Bristow of Estherville, Iowa. “Going stealthy” means to scale back all your tackle to the minimum. I mean the rod, reel, line, lead, circle hook and bait. I like to sh 20to 30-pound tackle with a longer than normal, uorocarbon leader to keep a good separation between the lead and bait. Small live baits (pinsh, grunts, pig sh, bull minnows, mullet, etc.) are excellent, but cut cigar minnows, sardines, herring or menhaden also work very well. Bristow will tell you that frozen squid is all you need, but he’s from Iowa, so you de nitely shouldn’t listen to him. So what are you going to catch? Well, that depends on the water depth and what part of the state you’re in. In the Florida Panhandle, you’ll catch what the locals refer to as black snapper. Now if you’re not familiar with that species, don’t try to look it up in the state regulations booklet, because it’s not in there. Black snapper is the same sh that people in central and south Florida call a mangrove snapper. The actual common name is gray snapper. These sh have a 10-inch minimum size limit, but that shouldn’t be a problem if you’re shing at night in depths that exceed 70 feet. Most of the snapper you catch will be signi cantly over the minimum size limit and average between 4 and 6 pounds. Some will exceed 10 pounds, and when they get that big they begin to look like a Cubera. Gray snapper are open for harvest year round, and the daily recreational bag limit is ve sh per person in state waters. Snapper are not the only game in town when shing the reefs at night. Catch a live squid and put him out on a at line just outside the reach of your anchor lights. Big king mackerel and wahoo feed all night long. They also like to eat while traveling at about 30 miles per hour, so set the drag light and keep the rod in a holder. This may not be repeatable, but on one August night off Franklin County in 70 feet of water, Ol’ Fishhead and I ran into a nest of cobia that was absolutely beyond belief. I’m not sure if it was a spawning aggregate or what, but we caught and released enough 25to 50-pound cobia in a seven-hour period to sink the boat. When daylight came, the amberjacks took over. When the sharks started eating the jacks whole, we blew the whistle and headed for the hill. Safety is always a consideration, especially when night shing, so make sure you pick a night with perfect weather and calm seas, especially if you sh from a small boat like we do. I like to hear the words “high pressure, light and variable winds, and seas of less than two feet” multiple times before I make a decision on a night trip. Also, make sure that your ares are current and your lights, electronics, marine radio, bilge pump, etc. are all working properly. Beat Florida Heat by Night Fishing Florida citrus production costs are the highest in history and could continue to climb as growers battle exotic diseases. That was the focus of a presentation by a well-known citrus economist at the International Citrus and Beverage Conference last week in Clearwater Beach. Dr. Ron Muraro of the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) said citrus production costs have increased more in the past eight years than any time period in four decades. He reported statewide, growers are spending up to an average of $1,700 an acre on disease management, irrigation, fertilizer and tree re-plantings. That’s up from $771 an acre just eight years ago. In some regions, growers are spending more than $2,100 an acre. The news came as no surprise to the industry which is locked in a battle with several diseases including canker, black spot and HLB. “We are lucky fruit prices have been rm over the past two seasons because growers are spending more and more to keep these diseases at bay,” said Michael W. Sparks, executive VP/ CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual. “We are doing a good job managing them however it is expensive and cuts into a grower’s bottom line.” The IFAS report blames the increased costs in part on world demand for fertilizer and high energy and chemical costs. Find the entire presentation at http://conference.ifas.u .edu/citrus/ The Florida citrus industry creates a $9 billion annual economic impact, employing nearly 76,000 people, and covering more than 500,000 acres. Founded in 1948 and currently representing nearly 8,000 grower members, Florida Citrus Mutual is the state’s largest citrus grower organization. For more information, visit www. citrusmutual.com.

By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County Democrat If you traveled on Riverside Drive Saturday morning you surely observed a group of women on Bobbi Brown’s lawn and pool patio dressed in tattered shorts, holey tee shirts and messy hair styles. These were guests of Bobbi Brown, longtime resident of Moore Haven, former president of the Glades County Woman’s Club, (several times), artist, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, doing what comes natural to her—presiding over a fun party, in fact, a Shipwreck Party on the banks of the Caloosahatchee. No friend dared not attend this unique party after receiving the invitation which was printed on a large seagrape leaf in white ink. A s these giggly ladies arrived, Bobbi pinned one autumn leaf on each person with the name of an invitee. When all were “leafed” each was asked to nd their designated guest and tell one interesting fact about that person. What a wonderful way to get to know new friends! Prizes were presented to the most original shipwreck survivor. Prices such as handmade Christmas ornaments decorated with what else? Seashells. Bobbi and several guests recalled a homemade raft race held on the river back in the 1980s. “Our raft turned over and we had to swim behind it to get back to land. We didn’t worry about gators then,” she said. Their raft’s name was ‘Bottoms Up.’ Brunch was luscious. Large clam shells lled with baked cheesy tuna, shrimp salad brimming with tender shrimp, stuffed eggs and fruit salad. Fresh coconut milk, lemonade, her famous iced tea and sparkling grape juice kept everyone hydrated in the early morning sun. You may want to stroll by her house and take a peek at the decorations created by her daughter, Kandi Snow. Treasure chests, jewels, the skeleton of a pirate, I’m sure, and lots of netting, oating handblown glass markers and a sandy beach. Bobbi said she wanted to have a party “for no special reason.” She did it with great aplomb. Guests were Bonita Drayton, Toni L. Watts, Sandy Kavouras, Darlene Tompkins, Chris Holliday, Anne Coffey, Ticia Boland, Margaret Brown, Kacie Swaford, Bette Davis, Diana Winieke, Vaushea Lewis and Ann Baker.

The Clewiston Sugar Factory, which set single tandem milling records last season, began processing the rst railcars of cane that afternoon. Both the harvesting and processing operations run 24/7 during the sugarcane harvest season that runs through early April. "Weather permitting, we expect to harvest and process a good sugarcane crop, very similar in size to last year's," said Judy Sanchez, senior director of corporate communications and public affairs. "We also expect our sugar milling and re ning operations to continue the record-setting pace of the last several years." Sanchez said that U.S. Sugar expects to produce about 7.1 million tons of sugarcane, harvesting approximately 6.56 million tons of sugarcane for processing at the Clewiston Sugar Factory. As a result of the Company's acquisition of DUDA sugarcane operations in Belle Glade, U.S. Sugar will continue to deliver contracted cane to the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida and Florida Crystal's mills. The Clewiston Re nery is projected to produce 15.4 million hundred-weight (770,000 tons) of re ned sugar. The Re nery also will import approximately 1.8 million hundred-weight (90,000 tons) of foreign raw sugar to be re ned and marketed. For the 2011-12 crop, U.S. Sugar produced 7.4 million tons of sugarcane, with 6.55 million tons of that processed in Clewiston, producing 773,000 tons of raw sugar, 41 million gallons of molasses and nearly 200,000 MWhrs of electricity. "Many South Floridians do not realize that our sugarcane produces green renewable energy that replaces 70 million gallons of fuel oil or 1.63 million barrels of fossil fuels each year," Sanchez said. "U.S. Sugar produced enough clean, green renewable energy to power the equivalent of more than 20,000 households for a year." All of the company's re ned sugar products are marketed by United Sugars Corporation, a marketing cooperative that includes U.S. Sugar and beet sugar farmers and processors American Crystal Sugar and Minn-Dak Farmers Cooperative. U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art sugar milling and re ning operations make its Clewiston Sugar Factory the world's largest fully integrated and automated cane sugar processing facility. U.S. Sugar Begins 82nd Annual Sugarcane Harvest University of South Florida History Professor and author, Gary Mormino, will be the guest speaker at the Clewiston Museum's Annual Membership Meeting at 7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 11. Mormino, a professor of Florida History Studies, will speak on how Florida has evolved quickly from a sleepy rural state in the 1940s to its current status. His best award winning book, "Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams," will provide an excellent platform for his presentation. This program is a precursor for the upcoming arrival of the Smithsonian Institution's Journey Stories Exhibit that will open to the public on Oct. 20 and remain for six weeks. Journey Stories explores the migration of America while Mormino's presentation will lay the groundwork for many events planned around the exhibit in the coming weeks. The public is invited to this event and there will be refreshments and an opportunity to meet Dr. Mormino and talk with him following the presentation. The program is being made possible through a grant provided by the Florida Humanities Council. For more information, contact the Museum at 863-983-2870 or e-mail clewistonmuseum@ embarqmail.com.

United Way takes applications for emergency food and shelter funds By Mike MinikwuMoore Haven High School Special to the Glades County Democrat Your Terriers were back in action last Friday night, as it was their Homecoming v ersus South West Florida Christian School out of Fort Myers, winning 42-7. The Terrier defense stood strong all night allowing only 7 points on the night. The terrier defense created short elds for its offense to start from. Markies Hallback led the defensive in tackles with 13, followed by Darrion Cohens (5) Charlie Ford (10), and Jose Garcia (5). V inton Lewis and Darrion Cohens both had interceptions. The Terrier offense has been very explosive the last couple of weeks and last Friday night wasn’t any different putting up a total of 379 yards with 295 being rushing and 84 being passing yards. Your leading rushers were Barrion Cohens with ve carries for 100 and a touchdown, Vinton Lewis had two carries for 70 yards and touchdown and Markies Hallback with one carry for 65 yards and touchdown. It was nice to see a great crowd out supporting the Terriers. It would be nice to get to the point where every home game is that way with away games being the same.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An Okeechobee man is being held on bond in the Glades County Jail following his arrest for reportedly squeezing a woman’s head and kicking her. Dewey Alton Lightsey Jr., 36, S.E. 59th Circle, was arrested Saturday, Sept. 29, on a felony charge of battery (domestic) and misdemeanor charges of resisting a law enforcement of cer without violence and criminal mischief. He is being held on a bond of $22,500. An arrest report by Deputy James Naso, of the Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce (GCSO), stated that Lightsey was arrested after he physically battered a woman during an argument. According to the deputy’s report Lightsey and the woman were in the laundry room of the woman’s home when he closed the door and forced her to the oor by grabbing her head and pushing her down. When the victim began calling for help Lightsey reportedly covered her mouth. Lightsey apparently released the victim when her daughter and a friend opened the laundry room door. Deputy Naso’s report goes on to indicate that Lightsey later kicked the woman in the side as she tried to plug a video gaming system into an electrical outlet. Domestic battery is normally a misdemeanor but because Lightsey has a prior conviction for aggravated battery the misdemeanor charge now becomes a felony. Lightsey apparently left the home a short time later and was then detained by Deputy Bryan Holden until Deputy Naso concluded his battery investigation. The other charges led against Lightsey stem from him allegedly threatening Deputy Naso and kicking out the rear window of the deputy’s patrol vehicle. Deputy Naso stated in his report that Lightsey had to be tasered then shackled to get him into the back of the GCSO patrol unit. The deputy’s report does not indicate if the woman needed, or received, medical treatment. A records check showed that Lightsey was arrested Thursday, Sept. 27, in Okeechobee County on a felony charge of possession of a controlled substance (oxycontin). He was booked into the Okeechobee County Jail on $5,000 bond. He was later released on bond.

Connecting Business With Talent 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 4, 2012 Crossword Puzzle Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.68/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.79/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 30.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 8.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 0.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 33.2 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “In the last few years, we’ve typically seen a seasonal downward trend at the gas pump as the cooler temperatures invade,” said GasBuddy. com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “We just haven’t seen any sort of real decline at the pump yet this autumn. This year has seen one of the warmest evertemperatures and gasoline prices alike. High temperatures have been blamed on global warming, perhaps we’re seeing a long term “pump warming” equivalent at retail pumps. Either way, the small drop in gasoline prices isn’t to the satisfaction of many, and I don’t see enough relief to satisfy the majority of American motorists any time soon,” DeHaan said.
