Twin Sisters' Family Lands sent a nine-page letter to Herschel Vinyard, head of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), on May 30 that outlined some of their concerns and their battles with water managers over water in the L-59 canal in eastern Glades County. That letter outlined the history of the Austin and Rosa Lee Pearce family and the 13,000 acres of land they owned. On Oct. 2, Inspector General Candie M. Fuller sent her response to John Austin Collier and Byron Story, who are both members of the Twin Sisters' group. After addressing some of the questions, Ms. Fuller ends her letter by stating that the management review is now closed. Ms. Fuller also alluded to a consumptive use permit that was issued to Austin and Rosa Lee Pearce that some now say has never existed. When contacted about Ms. Fuller's letter, Mr. Collier said the Inspector General's investigation into the group's concerns is not onl y awed, but it wasn't an investigation at all. "The inspector general's letter and their actions in regard to this matter are childlike and immature. If (Sheriff) Paul May would have conducted an investigation like this the y would have him run out of town on a rail and the governor would remove him from of ce," said Mr. Collier. "It's made an impossible situation even more impossible and it's done nothing but raise more questions. "All the inspector general did was talk to the perpetrator and never asked the victim, which is us, for any documentation to support our letter. Because of the inspector's general's actions, there is no nality to this issue," he Ranchers question water rights issues See WATER — Page 22 Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Laura MathisTerriers beat CelticsThe Moore Haven Terriers football team won the Oct. 19 home game against the St. John Neumann Celtics by a score of 35-21.

‘Gator Fred’ Day a successI am writing you this letter in reference to the fundraiser that I organized for Kaleb “GATOR FRED” Langdale in Moore Haven at the Chalo Nitka grounds on Saturday, Oct. 6. I want to start off by giving Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior all the credit. I was simply a vessel for him to use. I want to praise him for sparing Fred’s life on July 9. I know the Good Lord has very special plans for Kaleb. I can’t wait to watch them unfold. I also want to thank some very special dear friends and family for helping make Fred’s day so successful. Fred’s day never would have been able to happen without all of you. I want to thank my husband Dane Martin for being so supportive. Thank you for making the call to Andy Rif e of the Gatorboys to ask them if they would like to come out to support Fred’s day. Dane met Andy on a hunting trip. I want to thank my 16-year-old daughter Haley for all her hard work. If it were not for Haley, Fred’s day would have never come together. She is the one who keeps me together. With my ideas and her big smile, patience and secretarial skills we make a great team. She completes me! My precious Taylor Dane, you were a trooper and wanted to help in every way you could. You gave us great ideas. Dane, Haley, Jenna, Taylor, and Gracie Joe, I am so proud to call you my family. I Love you all so much!

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Fulvous Whistling-Duck is one of the most widespread species of waterfowl in the world with separate populations occurring in Asia, Africa, Madagascar, South America, and North America. This subtropical bird was rst reported breeding in Florida about 30 years ago. They are known locally as "Fulvous Tree Ducks" or "Large Whistling Teal." These mediumsized ducks have long legs and necks with a distinct pro le that appears more goose-like than duck-like. Adult males and females have a buff to tawnycinnamon head, chest and belly. The wings and back are darker brown. There is a silvery border of white tipped feathers between the belly and wings. They have a large blue-gray bill, gray legs, and a white rump patch that is visible when they are in ight. Juveniles have similar plumage, but are paler than adults. Their "kit-tee" call is a noisy high-pitched, two-syllable whistle which is often heard before these ducks are seen. These gregarious birds are often found in shallow freshwater wetland marshes, lakes and ooded agricultural elds as well as pastures and grasslands with standing water. They are mainly nocturnal feeders whose diet consists of seeds of water plants, rice, and aquatic invertebrates. Fulvous Whistling-Ducks breed in Florida and raise one brood annually from March through August. Their nest is a simple bowl of dense oating or ooded emergent vegetation. Surrounding plants are often pulled around the nest to conceal it from predators. Females lay an average of 13 white to buffy white eggs. These eggs are frequently laid in other Fulvous Whistling-Duck's nests or the nests of other duck species. Both parents incubate the eggs for 24 to 26 days with the young edging at 55 to 63 days of age.

With water levels currently above average in key areas, the region will likely not see the drought conditions or the water supply challenges of previous years. South Florida is forecast to experience one of the few dry seasons with near-average rainfall in the past 14 years, of cials announced today at a joint brie ng by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the National Weather Service (NWS). "Water managers like to see water levels at their highest safe levels going into the dry season to protect water supplies," said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. "While we still have the potential for signi cant rainfall this wet season, an average dry season should prevent the water supply concerns of the past several years." Only two South Florida dry seasons, 1998-1999 and 2003-2004, have actually been about average in the past 14 years, with two above average and 10 below average dry seasons. Released this week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center forecast calls for equal chances of slightly above or slightly below average rainfall for the rst three months of the upcoming dry season. But both NWS and SFWMD climatologists and meteorologists caution that the uncertainty associated with a weather pattern known as El Ni–o means this dry season forecast has a lower con dence than previous years. Among the of cial forecast highlights for the 2012-13 South Florida dry season: Near normal precipitation is mostly likely during the rst part of the dry season, from November to February A drier-than-normal trend may characterize March and April Average dry season precipitation: 12 to 15 inches in the interior/west to 15 to 21 inches in the east Long-term average winter temperature: 64 to 66 F in the interior/west to 67 to 69 F in the eastWet Season UpdateThe new dry season forecast follows a 2012 wet season that has seen above average rainfall in nearly the entire 16-county District, from Orlando to the Florida Keys. District-wide, an average of 41.73 inches of rain, or 6.65 inches above the average, fell between May 8 and Thursday, Oct. 18. Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, along with the Kissimmee region, experienced the largest rainfall totals, including the historic deluge from Tropical Storm Isaac. In Palm Beach County alone, nearly 15 inches of rain fell in a 72-hour period. In its ood control operations, the District moved an estimated 105 billion gallons of water away from residents in several counties. The historic rainfall pushed Lake Okeechobee to 15.9 feet NGVD on Friday, 0.84 inches above its historic average for this time of year. Highlights of South Florida’s Weather Roller CoasterNormal: Florida receives an average of 52 inches of rainfall a year, with 70 percent falling during the ve-month wet season from approximately June through October. Record Wet Conditions: Tropical Storm Isaac in late August 2012 proved to be a 1-in-100 year storm event. Record Dry Conditions: January 2012 was the driest January in the agency's 16-county region since recordkeeping began in 1932. Record Dry Conditions: The 2010-2011 dry season saw one of its latest starts in 20 years. October 2010 was the driest October on record in South Florida since 1932. The drought continued, with the driest October-to-mid-June period on record. Record Wet Conditions: In 2009, the sea breeze cycle ushered in the wet season in May. With 9.04 inches of rain falling across the District, May 2009 became the wettest May on record, according to District records dating back to 1932.

Hickpochee Ave LaBelle, FL 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 The weather may be getting cooler, but that doesn’t mean people who are impacted by allergens are in the clear. From dust and dander to seasonal pollen, millions of people will sneeze, wheeze and cough their way through the months ahead. The experts at Sun Products, makers of Snuggle, all and Wisk laundry products, offer these steps to help make your home a safer haven from that which af icts you.Bust DustAllergens are hiding all over the home. Regular dusting and vacuuming will eliminate much of the problem. Just be sure to clean your vacuum lter often. And don’t overlook fabrics in your home like upholstered chairs and drapes, as dust, mites and other allergens can collect here easily. Don’t suffer while cleaning. Use a mask to avoid coming into contact with the allergens you’re trying to eliminate.Wash SafelyThe irony of keeping your home spic and span for the sake of allergy management is that many cleaning supplies can aggravate the problem. Ammonia, for example, can be quite harsh on the eyes and nose. Using a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, all-purpose cleaner will make scrubbing the bathroom and kitchen a much more pleasant experience. Likewise, bedding and clothing are notorious for collecting and trapping common allergens. According to a study by Grana, an international science journal, a large t-shirt can trap up to 7 million pollen grains on a peak pollen day. Remove everyday allergens trapped in your garments and bedding with a fragrance free detergent designed for sensitive skin. For example, all free clear detergent, which is the number one detergent brand recommended by dermatologists and allergists for sensitive skin, will eliminate 99 percent of tree and grass pollen, and ragweed pollen, the number one fall allergen. Free of potential irritants like dyes and perfumes, it will also help bust pet dander and dust mite matter. More information can be found at www. all-laundry.com/freeclear/.Keep Allergens OutWhen you walk around outside your clothes can collect and absorb allergens and irritants. Shoes are magnets for grass, tree and ragweed pollen. Leave your shoes on the porch, especially after walking through grass. Change out of your clothes when you get home, depositing them directly into the hamper.Stay VigilantYou can stay informed with pollen-level maps and recent allergen news.

Keep Your Home Safe from Allergens this Season This week, the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition announced the addition of three new members: United Parcel Service (UPS), the United States Sugar Corporation and Clean Energy--all leaders in their respective industries. UPS is the world’s largest package delivery company, in terms of revenue and volume, and a global leader in supply chain solutions. United States Sugar Corporation is a technologically-advanced agricultural and food manufacturing company which produces sugar and citrus products for a variety of national and global brands. U.S. Sugar powers its sugar mill and re nery operations with clean, green, renewable biomass from sugarcane. Clean Energy is the largest provider of natural gas fuel for transportation in North America and a global leader in the expanding natural gas vehicle market. It has operations in CNG and LNG vehicle fueling, construction and operation of CNG and LNG fueling stations, biomethane production, vehicle conversion and compressor technology. Clean Energy recently opened its rst two CNG stations in Florida at the Tampa and Orlando airports that are open to the public. Eric Criss, President of the Beer Industry of Florida and Chairman of the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, enthusiastically embraced the new coalition members: “We are extremely pleased to have these iconic companies join our efforts to improve the environment and promote natural gas vehicles. UPS, U.S. Sugar, and Clean Energy are on the cutting edge of environmentally-friendly business practices and we are indeed grateful for their participation.” In August, the coalition released a Florida-focused Economic Impact Study showing that Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) incentives could create over 10,000 jobs, $300 million in new wages and $1 billion dollars in economic output in that state over two decades. Study results can be accessed in the “Public Policy” section of the coalition’s website: www.fuelforjobs.com. A complete list of coalition members is available on the website in the “About Us” section. Based on the study, FNGVC is working with policy makers and the Florida Natural Gas Association to create an incentive program that will help employers transition their eets to natural gas, an economical, domestically produced, and environmentally friendly fuel.

Florida is home to many types of soil and some of them lack carbon, meaning they could be used for carbon sequestration – but a new University of Florida study shows that variability in the state’s existing soil carbon levels could make the task harder. Carbon sequestration is the practice of storing carbon; one way to accomplish it is by adding carbon-rich material to soils. Carbon sequestration aims to slow the build-up of carbon-based gases in the atmosphere, a phenomenon believed to be a cause of global climate change. Some landowners may be able to make money by allowing their properties to be used as sites for carbon sequestration. In a presentation today at the joint meeting of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America, researchers with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences reported early ndings from a statewide study analyzing soil carbon content across areas the size of a football eld. The results con rm what researchers have suspected – that soil carbon content can vary widely on a small site, said Sabine Grunwald, a professor in UF’s soil and water science department. That means efforts to amend soil with carbon-rich biomass will need to be tailored to local carbon levels. The results also con rm that soil carbon variability has a lot to do with how the land is used and what material covers the land, factors known as land use and land cover. “Land use is highly correlated with soil carbon values,” Grunwald said. “So if you know the land use for a particular area, you can predict the amount of soil carbon there.” The ndings will help Grunwald and her colleagues develop new digital soil maps that offer greater resolution than past efforts, she said. The maps are needed for precision agriculture, the practice of growing crops using computer-assisted technology that compensates for variable growing conditions. Soil carbon content plays a major role in soil quality, fertility, crop yield and food production. High-quality digital maps can also assist conservation efforts by giving an accurate assessment of subsurface conditions in an area, she said. In the study, doctoral student Xiong Xiong took soil samples from ve areas, each representing one of ve types of land use and land cover commonly found in Florida. They are: pineland, dry prairie, improved pasture, mesic (moderately wet) mixed forest and xeric (dry) upland forest. Together, the ve account for about 40 percent of Florida’s surface area. Three of the sites were located near Gainesville, one in the Panhandle and one in South Florida. At each, Xiong took 108 soil samples, starting with several at a home base. Then Xiong sampled at distances of about 2 yards, 8 yards, 25 yards and 75 yards from the home base. The results showed that, in general, dry prairie and mesic mixed forest had the greatest capacity to store carbon, followed by improved pasture, while pineland and xeric upland forest had the least. The statewide soil carbon assessment is one part of a three-year study funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Grunwald said. She and Xiong are already well into a nationwide assessment, made in conjunction with the National Soil Survey Center in Lincoln, Neb., and researchers in Sydney, Australia. More than 6,500 sites have been sampled. “We should have some data next year,” Grunwald said. “The United States urgently needs new soil carbon assessments.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Kristina Kulpa 16 Years as Hendry Property Appraiser Experienced, Professional, Fair Knows the Job, Knows the People, Knows the Stakes When it comes to setting your property taxes ƒ Experience MattersTHE CHOICE IS CLEAR!HENDRY COUNTY DESERVES A CANDIDATE WITH EDUCATION AND INTEGRITYELECT KEVIN DRUMMONDFORSUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS I would also like to thank the Harris Family for their endorsement.Early Voting starts on October 27!www.Electdrummond.com Anything I can do, please call me, Im always available. 863-234-3480. 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 Florida Soil a Patchwork Quilt for Carbon Content PHOTO / UF

OverviewThe overall forecast thinking as far as track and intensity of Sandy hasn’t changed much since yesterday. Models are generally in agreement in a northward track across the central or western Bahamas Thursday and Friday at highend tropical storm intensity. A concern for South Florida is the expansion of the wind eld to the north and west of the center during this time. This has a direct impact on local winds and seas and is a classic example of why following the cone can be so misleading.Potential ImpactsWind: Elevated impacts east coast metro areas beginning late Thursday and continuing through Friday Night. Winds increasing on Thursday to NE 20-30 mph during the afternoon with some gusts to 40 mph or higher possible. Winds increasing to N 25-35 mph with possible gusts 45-50 mph most of the day on Friday, beginning to subside Friday night but remain rather high until Saturday. If system is larger and/or closer than forecast, even higher winds are possible. These winds would likely lead to downed trees and power lines with many power outages, as well as dangerous conditions for high-pro le vehicles and on bridges and overpasses. Interior and SW Florida: lower winds than indicated above but still gusty winds to as high as 35 mph possible late Thursday and during day on Friday. Surf/Beach Erosion: Potential for signi cant beach erosion and at least minor coastal ooding east coast beaches Thursday night and Friday. Rain: Heaviest rainfall will probably stay just offshore, however enough rain bands could brush the east coast and lead to 1-2 inches Thursday through Saturday. If heavier rain bands expand farther west then amounts could be at least twice of what I’m indicating. Right now ooding potential is on the low side but will have to monitor very closely. Interior and west coast areas should have little if any rain impacts. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 COME WATCH ALLNFL & COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMESSPECIALS $2 Domestic Draft $4 Crown Royal 50¢ WingsNew: 65 Different Frozen Drinks!LaBelles #1 Restaurant863-342-8216 870 W. Hickpochee Ave LaBelle, FL 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 Monitoring Tropical Storm Sandy Holiday cooking is no easy feat. Meals tend to be more time-consuming and complex to prepare than standard fare. But by planning ahead, you can make all those delicious meals and treats in record time without undue stress.Stock Up EarlyDon’t leave your grocery shopping for the last minute. The stores will be overrun with other eleventh hour shoppers. The rst thing you should do is to plan your menu in advance. Then take inventory of your fridge and pantry, and compose a detailed shopping list accordingly. When you’re crunching on time, the last thing you’ll want to do is run to the store because you forgot that crucial ingredient. Beef Up Your KitchenBe sure your kitchen is well-stocked with the right tools to ensure proper execution of all those tasty holiday treats. Be sure your knives are sharpened and ready for the onslaught of meal prep. An extra set or two of measuring spoons and mixing bowls is also a great idea when you’re making so many dishes at once. You probably already have a food processor or traditional blender, but adding a hand-held immersion blender to your kitchen tool box will aid you in quick preparation of pureed soups, sauces and homemade whipped cream. The wrong gear can ruin a great recipe. Many holiday recipes call for zesting to add avor and garnish to cookies, cakes, pies and drinks. If you’re trying to zest with a peeler or poorquality zester, you may be adding the bitter pith of citrus fruits to an otherwise delicious treat. Opt for a zester with v-shaped teeth that skim across the surface of citrus. For example, the Edgeware Better Zester has non-stick coating, ensuring smooth zesting and easy clean up. It also features a container with measurements, and a non-slip end piece for stability, so you can easily and comfortably follow your recipes accurately. More information on proper zesting can be found at www.edgewareproducts.com.Cook and Bake AheadNot every kitchen task needs to happen on the day of your festivities. Lighten your load by prepping what you can beforehand. Bake cookies, brownies and breads in advance and store in the freezer with wax paper or an airtight container. Just be sure to let them cool to room temperature before storing. A sauce’s avor improves with time, so prep your sauces a day in advance. Dice vegetables for side dishes ahead of time and store in plastic baggies in the fridge. Make a salad the day before and dress just before serving. Don’t let the joys of holiday entertaining be a cause for sorrow. Streamline your meal preparation with a little planning. Tips to Make Holiday Cooking Easier

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 KEEP THE CHANGE! SPUN SUGARI love to eat spun sugar when I am at the Hendry County Fair. United States Sugar Corporation now tries to spin its efforts to keep its tax break by having its hired-gun Tampa attorney write a paid political ad explaining just why it is good for the taxpayers of Hendry County that US Sugar be entitled to contract … forever … as to the manner in which its multi-million dollar facilities are assessed. Its attorney does not cite one authoritative appraisal text supporting the contract. Their lawyer is not an appraiser, as I am, he is simply spinning sugar as fast as he can. When is the last time you saw a taxpayers attorney spin his clients views into a local Property Appraisers race? This is an example of US Sugars desperation to keep its taxes low and raise yours. US Sugars tactics remind me of the adage that if you are in a lawsuit you “rst argue the law and if the law is against you, argue the facts, and if you cant argue the facts, argue with the jury. In this election, you, the taxpayers of Hendry County, are the jury. Many of you have called to tell me to continue my efforts to see that US Sugar pays its fair share of taxes and not to cave in to its bullying. I really appreciate your support and intend to do just that. My opponent has been strangely silent as to how she would appraise US Sugars property if she should win the election. Her silence speaks louder than her words. Dont forget to vote on November 6, your property taxes are at risk if US Sugar wins the Property Appraisers election.

Forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center say a wavering El Nio, expected to have developed by now, makes this year’s winter outlook less certain than previous years. “This is one of the most challenging outlooks we’ve produced in recent years because El Nio decided not to show up as expected,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “In fact, it stalled out last month, leaving neutral conditions in place in the tropical Paci c.” When El Nio is present, warmer ocean water in the equatorial Paci c shifts the patterns of tropical rainfall that in turn in uence the strength and position of the jetstream and storms over the Paci c Ocean and United States. This climate pattern gives seasonal forecasters con dence in how the U.S. winter will unfold. An El Nio watch remains in effect because there’s still a window for it to emerge. Other climate factors can in uence winter weather across the country. Some of these factors, such as the North Atlantic Oscillation, a prominent climate pattern, are dif cult to predict more than one to two weeks in advance. The NAO adds uncertainty to the winter outlook in the Northeast and MidAtlantic portions of the country. Areas ravaged by extreme drought over the past year are unlikely to see much relief from drought conditions this winter. In the 2012 U.S. Winter Outlook (December through February) odds favor: Warmer-than-average temperatures in much of Texas, northward through the Central and Northern Plains and westward across the Southwest, the Northern Rockies, and eastern Washington, Oregon and California, as well as the northern two-thirds of Alaska. Cooler-than-average temperatures in Hawaii and in most of Florida, excluding the panhandle. Drier-than-average conditions in Hawaii, the Paci c Northwest and Northern California, including Idaho, western Montana, and portions of Wyoming, Utah and most of Nevada. Drier-than-average conditions in the upper Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Missouri and eastern parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and western Illinois. Wetter-than-average conditions across the Gulf Coast states from the northern half of Florida to eastern Texas. The rest of the country falls into the “equal chance” category, meaning these areas have an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation. This seasonal outlook does not project where and when snowstorms may hit or provide total seasonal snowfall accumulations. Snow forecasts are dependent upon the strength and track of winter storms, which are generally not predictable more than a week in advance. NOAA’s National Weather Service is the primary source of weather data, forecasts and warnings for the United States and its territories. NOAA’s National Weather Service operates the most advanced weather and ood warning and forecast system in the world, helping to protect lives and property and enhance the national economy. Working with partners, NOAA’s National Weather Service is building a Weather-Ready Nation to support community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather.

By Bobbi BrownSpecial to the Glades County Democrat At the October meeting of Keenagers (over 50 YOA teenagers) it was a case of “little but loud” as the small group played a “take off” on HeeHaw! Even if you aren’t 50-plus, you probably remember someone yelling “What’s for supper, Grandpa,” and he replied a monstrous menu. Lorie Ward, won a prize for the youngest Keenager, and Oleta Richardson won the game by remembering all the “vittles” that will be served for Thanksgiving Dinner. Taking nonperishable goods to the Baptist Children’s Home is an ongoing project of Keenagers, and it was announced that a box will be delivered this week. This is open to the entire church, and everyone is encouraged to add something to their basket for these boys and girls whose families have been upset, when shopping for their own families. An interesting item that has been added to Keenagers’ agenda, is that someone volunteers to quote a Scripture verse that is very important to them, and tells why it is so meaningful to them. Billie Collier quoted her favorite Scripture, Leviticus 19: 16-18, which deals with “tale bearing.” A very interesting discussion followed with the gist of the discussion being that no Christian should repeat gossip, even if the tale is true, as it could hurt someone. Judy Currie has volunteered to contribute her favorite Scripture at the November luncheon. Deputy Sheriff Dave Harden will present a program at the November meeting on “How seniors can stay safe.” This is a very necessary topic for the over 50 age group, and they can’t have too much help in protecting themselves and their homes. Keenagers meets every third Thursday, usually for a covered dish luncheon and a program. They meet in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church, but Keenagers is open to anyone 50 or over, and is a fun way to get to know your neighbors. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Political advertisement paid for and approved by Scott Hopes, Republican for State Senator, District 39 www.scotthopes.us scott@scotthopes.us (305) 290-1996 STATE SENATORDISTRICT 39FOR 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 Keenagers meet for October, plan events Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Bobbi BrownOleta Richardson holds her prize.

During the business meeting we organize activities and make decisions with regard to the events that will take place at the library. At each meeting we usually have a short but interesting presentation by a guest speaker in addition to refreshments. Now, about the “mystery lady of the Glades County Library,” we have still not determined how the painting of Lillian G. Magee came to be at the library, however we are reasonably sure that it is an authentic James C. Magee painting. James C. Magee (18641924) was an American Impressionist artist. He was born in Brooklyn New York although the majority of his career was spent in Philadelphia. He studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts from 1896 to 1902 and with Robert Henri in Paris, France. Though little is known of his career, McGee became an accomplished painter exhibiting widely at the major institutions of his day. Between 1919 and 1924, McGee’s work was accepted into shows at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (where he won several awards over the years and a gold medal in 1907), the Art Institute of Chicago, the National Academy of Design, the Society of Independent Artists, the Plastic Club and the Salons of America, to name just a few. Most of Magee’s paintings were landscapes.

Jack and Felinda, you have been through so much the past couple of months. Your love and support for your family has shined. You are an amazing couple and truly have such a wonderful family. Fred, I am so proud of you. You are a remarkable young man. You have turned a very horrible situation into something positive. Always remember the bible verse Jeremiah 29:11. For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Plans to give you hope and a future. With this being said put all your trust and worries in God’s hands. I am so proud of Glades County and our surrounding counties for coming together to support the Langdale Family. When I started to plan Fred’s day, I wanted to accomplish a few things. Of course to raise a lot of money, to bring all our surrounding communities together, to have a day that felt like old Chalo Nitka did when I was a little girl, to make new friendships, to show big cities what the love of a small community can do, and to make my daddy the late Joe Peeples proud. I feel like I accomplished my goals with the help of many friends and family. We may be a small town, but we are a small town with a “BIG HEART.” Sincerely, Linda Peeples Martin 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 With Crizal No-Glare lenses, neither smudges nor scratches can keep you from the clearest vision possible.

Moore Haven Elementary School students on nine weeks honor roll 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 HAPPENINGSat the LaBelles #1 Restaurant 22 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 continued. He said the Twin Sisters' group has les and electronic communications that will prove their point, but the inspector general has never asked for that documentation. While the letter from Twin Sisters' poses several questions, the crux of Mr. Collier's angst centers around a statement made by Ms. Fuller in regard to the L-59 canal, which runs from the Indian Prairie Canal to the Kissimmee River. The Twin Sisters' document details how, in 1963, Austin and Rosa Lee Pearce, Mr. Collier's grandparents, entered into an eminent domain agreement with the Central and South Florida Water Management Districts. That agreement provided ood protection for families along the canal, as well as the right to use water from that canal for irrigation purposes. An eminent domain agreement allows federal, state and local governments to take private property following the payment of just compensation to the property owner. "It means the title is transferred from a private party to a governmental entity. It (eminent domain) is intended to last forever, unless the instrument says otherwise," explained Michael Allan Wolf, a law professor at the University of Florida Levin College of Law in an earlier interview. Although she doesn't say so speci cally, Ms. Fuller indicates in her response that the alleged consumptive use permit supersedes the eminent domain agreement. In her response, Ms. Fuller states: "In 1961, Austin and Rosa Lee Pearce were issued a right of way permit. This permit stood and allowed water access until the law changed in 1972. In 1972, the new law required a consumptive use permit to be issued. Austin and Rosa Lee Pearce were issued a consumptive use permit in 1978 which applied to their property until the death of the last surviving individual, Rosa Lee Pearce." Ms. Fuller went on to state that after Mrs. Pearce's death in 1982 the property was no longer permitted for consumptive water uses because water rights permits do not automatically transfer. And it's Ms. Fuller's reference to the consumptive use permit that has Mr. Collier up in arms. "I have never seen a consumptive use permit in my grandfather or grandmother's name. I would like to see one," he said. "Our attorney and our engineer have never seen one. "I have seen an application for irrigation and a permit for 7,500 acres out of the L-59 in conjunction with the eminent domain agreement. At the time those were issued, there was no such thing as a consumptive use permit," he added. Tommy Perry, an engineer with JohnsonPrewitt Associates Inc. in Clewiston, backed up Mr. Collier's statement. When asked if he has seen this consumptive use permit, Mr. Perry replied: "No, I have not." Mr. Perry, who said he's done engineering work for many years for Mr. Story, added that he is surprised that he hasn't seen that permit. It should also be noted at this point that this newspaper has asked for a copy of that permit through public records requests. But as of late Friday, Oct. 19, those requests have not been lled. And Mr. Collier doubts that the elusive permit will ever surface. "I anxiously await its appearance," he said. When asked if Twin Sisters is considering litigation over this issue, Mr. Collier said what the group is really seeking is clarity on the issue. "We're trying to get clari cation without litigation, but they're forcing us into some type of litigation. Sometimes the only clarity you get is the sound of the judge's gavel," he replied. "But if you can violate eminent domain and leave people high and dry, then what's next?" When contacted for their comment, a DEP spokesman said they would leave their comment to what's contained in Ms. Fuller's letter. W ATERContinued From Page 1 An arrest report by Of cer Frank LiCata, of the Seminole Police Department (SPD), stated that Clemens forcibly entered the victim's home on the Brighton Seminole Reserv ation. He was apparently armed with either a ri e or a shotgun. After Clemens had reportedly threatened the life of another individual in the home, the victim of the beating ran from the home. Clemens caught the victim near a wooded area and "... beat her to the ground," stated a second SPD report. At one point Clemens pointed the gun at the victim and pulled the trigger more than once, stated the report. The victim heard the clicks, but the gun did not re, the report added. Clemens then allegedly ed the area on an ATV. The SPD report indicated that the victim was taken to a nearby hospital where she was treated for numerous lacerations and abrasions. Of cer LiCata's report goes on to state that he was able to contact Clemens on his cell phone later and spoke to him for about 45 minutes in an effort to get the man to surrender. At one point, Clemens reportedly told the of cer: "I can see you right now and I have a scope on you to take you out bro." Sometime later Clemens surrendered to Of cer LiCata. In that second report, Clemens denied ever having a rearm. According to that report the gun has not been found. GUNContinued From Page 1
