2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 8, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Florida Bluebird Society established the rst Fall Florida Bluebird Blitz in November 2010 and rst Spring Blitz in April of 2011. During these counts 47 of Florida's 67 counties submitted reports to the Bluebird Society or online at www.ebird.org. Inland Florida reported two at Pioneer located in Hendry County in November of 2011. Five Eastern Bluebirds were reported in Muse in Glades County during the April 2012 Blitz. The 5th annual Statewide Bluebird Blitz will take place on Friday November 16 and Saturday November 17, 2012.What is a Bluebird Blitz?A Blitz is a concentrated effort on speci c dates to locate as many Eastern Bluebirds in your locale as possible.How do I participate?Go outside on Friday, Nov. 16 and/or Saturday, Nov. 17 and look for bluebirds Record as much as you are able about the bluebirds you see. Location, behavior, sex, age, etc. We also want to know where you looked but did not nd bluebirds. Download, complete and submit the Blitz Report form from the FBS web site, oridabluebirdsociety.com or submit your report on Cornell's free "ebird" website. For more information contact Faith at oridabluebirdsociety@gmail.com This is a great opportunity for adults and youth to become citizen scientists for the day and help document Florida's Eastern Bluebird population. The Eastern Bluebird is a common bird of least concern which can be found in meadows or openings surrounding trees, it has bene tted from the use of human-made nest boxes throughout Florida. These cavity nesting birds numbers were declining for a number of reasons including competition for natural nest sites from other bird species such as the Tufted Titmouse, Caroline Wren, House Sparrow, and the Eastern Starling which are diminishing winter food supply and adverse weather. They feed mainly on insects, but will also feed on wild berries in the winter. The adult male is a small beautifully colored thrush with a bright blue back, head and tail. It has a chestnut colored throat and breast with a white belly. The female is duller or grayer with a bluish tail and wings and a subdued orangebrown breast. Young birds have heavily spotted feathers. The Eastern Bluebird has a distinctive and fairly low pitched warbling song that sounds like "chur-lee, chur-lee" which might include chattering notes with whistle when singing. They will build a nest of pine needles and grasses inside cavities where they will lay four or ve eggs which hatch in 13 to 15 days. During a successful nesting season two to three broods of young will be raised. The young stay with their parents during the nesting season usually lasting from March to July which makes up a rather large family group by summer's end.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 8, 2012 BY MARK KINGThe cool weather has hit South Florida and the bass on Okeechobee have made a push off of the main open water of the lake and down toward the grassy shallow spawning areas of the lake. With the lake level still over 15 and a half feet above sea level, there are plenty of areas to sh at, from the north end of the lake to the south end. This past full moon there were a few bass that moved in and spawned. However, the main spawning period won't begin until the months of January, February, and March. I have been shing mostly south of the Clewiston area and have been catching a lot of bass, some of which are over seven pounds. The live bait bite on wild shiners has been really good with ve dozen being a good number to start with everyday. The arti cial bite has been great one day and then a little slow the next but the consistency has been really picking up as the water cools off. I have been throwing Gambler Big EZ swimbaits in areas of thick grass and pitching jigs to reed heads after the sun gets up high in the sky. The bass seem to be bunched up, when you catch one you will catch more in that same area and then you may go a mile before you start catching them again. As fall and winter approach Florida our bass shing will really start to get crazy here on Okeechobee, with thousands of bass moving into spawning areas to spend the next ve months. With the water level being up you will be able to get back in some areas that no one has been to for many years and it will give us so much area to sh that we won't all be shing in the same areas. A couple precautions to remember is to watch out for duck hunting boats back in the thick grassy areas especially if the grass is higher then your line of sight, and the boat trails that we have back in the grassy areas are just that boat trails and not a safe place to sh or you could get run over by a boat. It is time to get that shing trip of a lifetime to Lake Okeechobee booked, the shing is great and the weather will for sure be better then that cold snowy stuff they have up north. I am also booking duck hunting trips here on Okeechobee for the 2012-13 season with one of my duck hunting partners. Good luck, tight lines, and I hope to see everyone on the water real soon.

Since the old U-Save in Moore Haven closed in October 2011, Moore Haven residents have had no choice but to drive 16 miles or more each way to the closest supermarket. This has placed a real hardship on those who do not have transportation. Earlier this year, Joe Sweet, who owns Harvest House Grocery on U.S. 441 S.E. in Okeechobee, decided to invest in Moore Haven. "We could have gone anywhere around the lake," said Mr. Sweet. "There were a lot of stores available. But the need was here. "We want an opportunity to grow, to be a service to the public, to make a difference in the community," he said, "We would like to see the community grow. We would like to be a part of that." Mr. Sweet and his wife, Lisa, have made a big investment in the store. Just cleaning the place up cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. The store employs 32 people. Mr. Sweet said he was overwhelmed by the response to their rst "help wanted" ad. In an 8-hour period, more 200 people applied to work. "We interviewed them all," he said. "We wanted to give everybody an opportunity." He said some people who applied drove over from Clewiston and Okeechobee. "There are just not enough jobs to go around," he said. Work on the building started in July. The clean up was a big job. They had to tear down some of the walls and chip out and replace some of the oors. They did a lot of scraping, bleaching and disinfecting before they could even think about painting. Those who have visited the building in recent weeks frequently commented: "It smells clean in here." The spacious store now offers fresh produce, meat, dairy foods and a wide variety of canned and boxed goods. Mr. Sweet said they tried to consider the population when allocating space for various products. For example, the store's spice aisle has 1,500 different seasonings. "This is more of a cooking community," said Mr. Sweet. "If they want to make something, I want them to nd all of the ingredients here." The store carries IGA brands as well as other popular brands. For example, in the ice cream department customers can choose from IGA ice cream, Blue Bunny or Breyers. He said they will probably make some changes after the store opens if there is customer demand for something they didn't initially offer. "We picked as much variety as possible," he said. Mr. Sweet is proudest of the section of the store he calls his "dollar department." The dollar department has more than 1,000 items for $1 each. The wide range of products for $1 includes items such as toothpaste, shampoo, plastic goods, trash bags, canned chili, seasonings, jelly, cereal, batteries and instant coffee. "This is not something you usually see in a supermarket, but I think there is a need for it in this community," he explained. IGA stands for the Independent Grocers Alliance. IGA was founded in 1926, bringing together independent grocers across the United States to ensure that the trusted, family-owned local grocery store remained strong in the face of growing chain competition. The IGA motto is "Hometown Proud." For more information online, go to www.iga. com.

Owen, brought him and his brother to Clewiston in March 1925 where his father, an engineer, was in charge of draining and laying out the town of Clewiston. Young Dick and his family were an active pioneer family and very much a part of the fabric of the area. As a young man, Dick wrote movie reviews for the Clewiston News and excelled in all things “dramatic”singing, dancing, plays and musicals. A 1941 graduate of Clewiston High School, Richard attended the College of William and Mary and nished after the War in 1947.

He moved into academia in the 70’s and found his “groove” as a Professor of Drama, later Department Chair at the Clearwater campus of the St. Petersburg College. During this time and into retirement, he also indulged in his love of travel, visiting Great Britain, Europe and Mexico on numerous occasions. He retired in the 1980’s rst to Safety Harbor, FL, then to North Fort Myers in 2000, but he continued to entertain family and friends with stories of the theatre, of movies and movie stars, of his cats, his travel adventures and Florida history.

W ater levels are currently adequate to meet water supply needs into the dry seasonSouth Florida transitioned into the dry season during the last days of October, a month that ended with above average rainfall across most of the South Florida Water Management District’s (SFWMD) 16-county region. “The region is well positioned for the dry season because water levels are up,” said Susan Sylv ester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Looking ahead, we have a forecast of average rainfall for the next few months.”October RainfallDistrict-wide October rainfall averaged 5.32 inches from Orlando to the Florida Keys, representing 141 percent of average, or 1.54 inches above average. Most areas of the District saw above average rainfall. Highlights of the month include: Broward County, the Southwest Coast and Martin and St. Lucie counties experienced some of the highest rainfall totals. The Water Conservation Areas saw signi cant rainfall as did the Big Cypress Preserve. The East Caloosahatchee Basin was the only area of the District to receive below average rainfall, with 2.39 inches, representing 70 percent of average, or a de cit of 1.02 inches. Lake Okeechobee received 3.86 inches of direct rainfall, representing 130 percent of average, or 0.89 inches above average.2012 Wet Season TotalsThe 2012 wet season ended with 42.85 inches of rainfall District-wide. This represents 116 percent of average, or 6.07 inches above average. Above average rainfall was driven by the early start to the wet season in May and the historic deluge from Tropical Storm Isaac in late August. Among the wet season highlights: Eastern Miami Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties received the most rainfall in the District, with more than 50 inches of rain for the wet season. The Southwest Coast and East Caloosahatchee Basin were the only areas of the District that were slightly below average. Lake Okeechobee received 38.45 inches of direct rainfall, representing 125 percent of average, or 7.58 inches above average. During Isaac, the District moved 105 billion gallons of water to tide and storage areas following 14.85 inches of rainfall in a 72-hour period in an area of central Palm Beach County.2012-13 Dry Season ForecastSouth Florida is forecast to experience one of the few dry seasons having near-average rainfall in the past 14 years. Only two dry seasons, 1998-1999 and 2003-2004, have actually been about the historical average in that time frame, with two above average and 10 below average dry seasons. 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. Among the of cial forecast highlights for the 2012-2013 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 and west to 15 to 21 inches in the east Long-term average winter temperature: 64 to 66 F in the interior and west to 67 to 69 F in the east 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself!

Journey Stories is a Smithsonian traveling exhibit that depicts the migration of Americans across our great land, a pattern that continues today. Clewiston was one of only six communities in Florida selected to receive this prestigious exhibit. In addition to viewing the exhibit following the evening presentation, the exhibit is available during normal Museum hours, which are 9-4 on weekdays until Dec. 1. Saturday and evening viewings for groups are available by reservation. The public is invited to this free event and there will be plenty of time following the presentation to tour the exhibit and to enjoy refreshments. The program is being made possible through a grant provided by the Florida Humanities Council and with technical assistance from the Smithsonian Institution. For more information, please contact the Museum at 983-2870 or email clewistonmuseum@ embarqmail.com. Complete information can be found at www.clewistonmuseum.org. Dallas Townsend to Speak on Journey Stories Dry Season Starts Following a Wet October Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 8.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.41/g on Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 5.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.51/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 3.1 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 25.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 28.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 7.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “Even with Hurricane Sandy causing havoc on re neries and infrastructure in the Northeast, gasoline prices nationally have continued to trend lower,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “It goes to show how much more signi cant the Gulf Coast is to this nation’s energy backbone when such a massive storm causes no major rise in the national average. The good news is that average prices will likely continue to decline, perhaps to $3.35/gal nationally by Thanksgiving. For those in Sandy’s wake, fuel availability remains dif cult, and is the reason GasBuddy has implemented an emergency fuel availability service,” DeHaan said.

Special to the Glades County Democrat Dr. Lasheba Travis recently received con rmation that her research on teen pregnancy prevention has been published through ProQuest, a research-based publishing company that connects people to reliable information. Dr. Travis's research is entitled "Teen Pregnancy Prevention in a Rural County," which focused on the frequency of attendance in religious services in African American males ages 13 through 16 to determine if it was correlated to their behavior, behavioral intent, and decision-making toward abstinence. Her research found a correlation between the frequency of attending religious services and the behavior and decision-making toward abstinence, but there was no correlation with behavior intent. To recognize her accomplishments, coworkers from the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments honored her with a tea/luncheon at the First Baptist Church in LaBelle. Attendees from Hendry, Glades, and Lee counties showed their support and showered her with cards and gifts. Dr Travis said, "I have many things to be grateful for. Firstly, I give God all the praise. Next, I am especially indebted to the Hendry Count y Recreation Board and Ramiro Rodriguez; Reverend Dwayne Brown, pastor of Mt. Calvary Church in Clewiston; and Diane Brown and Valerie Nelson for their support and assistance in the accomplishment o f my research. Lastly, I am grateful to my coworkers for honoring and celebrating m y achievements."

A former resident’s husband Donnie St. John (his wife is Tina Peace, who gre w up in Moore Haven), is currently in Ne w York on storm duty. Another example of the small town, big heart mentality that Glades County has! Sincerely, Dawn Hart Letters to the Editor Glades County Commissioner Donna Storter Long shares her notes from the Monday, Oct. 22, meeting of the Glades Count Commiss ion: Supporting documents may be viewed at w ww.myglades.com.Presentations/awards1.

The parcel is shaped with a “panhandle” somewhat like an inverted shape of the state of Idaho. Mr. Hilton stated additional septic engineering review would be required, as well as extending underground electric service, and the new site may require some clearing.

The enzyme CXE1 will never be a household name, but a new University of Florida study suggests that tomato lovers owe it a debt of thanks nonetheless — without it, their favorite fruit might not be so tasty. In a study published this week by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences announced their discovery of the enzyme and showed how the common tomato plant generates large amounts of it as the fruit ripens. Chemical reactions triggered by CXE1 improve the fruit’s avor pro le by reducing the presence of acetate esters, volatile chemicals commonly associated with plant defense and plant-to-plant communication, said molecular biologist Harry Klee, an eminent scholar with UF’s horticultural sciences department. “We do believe this phenomenon makes the fruit more palatable,” Klee said. Previous UF/IFAS tomato research has shown that consumers do not like the contributions that acetate esters make to tomato avor. Many of them are pleasant in isolation — for example, butyl acetate has a sweet, banana-like odor — but don’t match consumers’ ideas of good tomato taste, he said. Klee and his colleagues are involved in a long-term effort to uncover genes and biochemical pathways responsible for producing the volatile chemicals that give fresh tomatoes their characteristic avor and aroma. Ultimately, they hope to show that great taste is dependent on just a handful of compounds in the right proportions. Breeders can use the information to guide their efforts to develop improved varieties. The team discovered CXE1 and four similar enzymes while analyzing tomato genes that appeared to play a role in establishing the acetate ester content of tomato fruit. To better understand the role CXE1 plays in tomato avor, the researchers investigated what would happen without it. They engineered tomato plants that produced very little of the enzyme. The fruit from those plants contained higher-than-normal levels of acetate esters. The team also analyzed Solanum pennellii and Solanum habrochaites, relatives of the tomato plant that produce green-skinned fruits unpalatable to people and seldom eaten by animals. The fruits contained large amounts of acetate esters, compared with tomato fruit. Furthermore, analysis showed that those plants produced little CXE1. In laboratory tests, CXE1 inhibited the activity of numerous acetate esters, though the enzyme was more active against some than others. It’s possible, Klee said, that high CXE1 production in tomato plants is a trait that evolved in tandem with red-skinned fruit, providing a survival advantage. Perhaps the red color drew attention from animals and the pleasant taste inspired them to eat the fruit, leading to seed dispersal that established the plant in new areas. “Because acetate esters are negatively correlated with consumer liking, we want to nd ways to get rid of them,” he said. “I always tell people there are probably ve or 10 chemicals we need to optimize to achieve an ideal avor balance in tomato, and I think CXE1 is probably part of that group.” Besides Klee, the research team included Charles Goulet, Melissa Mageroy, Nghi Lam, Abbye Floystad and Denise Tieman, all with UF’s horticultural sciences department. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 8, 2012 Crossword Puzzle Scientists Discover Enzyme that Improves Flavor of Ripening Tomatoes

Or visit www.seminolebrightoncasino.com. Cornucopia of Cash at Seminole Casino Brighton By Tony YoungFWCNovember means the 2012-13 huntin’ season is in full swing. In this month’s column, I cover almost everything you need to know about general gun, fall turkey, quail, snipe and the second phase of mourning and white-winged dove season. The rst thing you need to do is pick up a $17 Florida resident hunting license. Nonresidents pay $46.50 for a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12 months. If you plan to hunt one of Florida’s many wildlife management areas (WMAs), you’ll also need a $26.50 management area permit, but don’t forget to study the brochure for the speci c area you plan to hunt, because dates, bag limits and rules di er greatly from area to area. You can get these brochures at tax collectors’ o ces in close proximity to the WMA, or you can download them from MyFWC.com/Hunting. You can buy your license and permits by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or going online at License.MyFWC. com. H ave your cr edit card ready. You also can purchase them from tax collectors’ o ces and most retail outlets that sell hunting and shing supplies. The general gun season runs Nov. 3–Jan. 20 in Zone C; Dec. 1–Feb. 17 in Zone B; and in Zone A, the second phase of general gun season runs Nov. 17–Jan. 6. In Zone D, it starts Thanksgiving Day (Nov. 22) and lasts four days until Nov. 25. Two weeks later, the season reopens Dec. 8 and runs through Feb. 17. Hunters can take bucks having at least one antler 5 inches or longer, but anyone hunting deer in Florida must have the $5 deer permit. On private lands, hunters can take wild hogs year-round with no bag or size limits. On most – but not all – WMAs, there’s also no bag or size limit on wild hogs, and hunters can take them during any hunting season except spring turkey. Check the WMA brochure to be certain. Give thanks for hunting opportunities

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Going Out: A Guide to Area Entertainment and Attractions November 2012 From youngsters in 4-H and FFA shooting clubs to retirees, shooting sports are gaining in popularity in the United States. The fastest growing groups of shooters? Women and retirees. A recent study by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, found that more than 4 million women participate in target shooting in the United States. A lso growing in popularity are Outdoor W omen and women’s self-defense programs that involve learning to use a gun. This comes as no surprise to Je Wait and Jason Flesch at Okeechobee Shooting Sports, 7055 N.E. 48th Street in Okeechobee. “More women are shooting,” Je explained, adding that their women’s selfdefense class is one of their most popular o erings. Because some women feel intimidated in a class with men, Okeechobee Shooting Sports o ers separate classes for women. The class includes learning to shoot through a purse—instead of wasting precious seconds to remove the gun from the handbag. Women who start with a self-defense class often nd they enjoy target shooting as a hobby. While in the past, shooting was a male-dominated sport, many wives now j oin their husbands for a day at the range, he explained. “They’re learning to shoot with a purpose,” Je continued. “Some women start out in class timid and reserved and as they master the skills, that changes. Their con dence level goes from zero to 100.” Retiring “baby boomers” is another demographic showing increasing interest in shooting sports. Some come out j ust to try it—something to check o a “bucket list”—and nd out they enjoy shooting. Many of these retirees are getting much more involved in the shooting sports and even competing in matches. Others who h ave o wned guns most of their adult lives now h ave more time to devote to the shooting sports and enjoy trying new types of shooting. For those new to a community, a shooting range can be a place to make new friends with others who share their interests. Okeechobee Shooting Sports is handicapped-accessible so even those in wheelchairs can enjoy the various shooting sports. The gunsmith shop can modify weapons to accommodate special needs. Also growing in interest is IDPA (International Defensive Pistol Association) competitions. “IDPA is a growing competition for concealed carry permit holders,” said Jason. While IDPA is traditionally a club sport with competitions sponsored by various clubs, Okeechobee Shooting Sports o ers IDPA competitions supervised by the range sta “We’ve made changes to the way we operate to accommodate more people,” he explained. Instead of an IDPA meet taking most of the day, 30 people can compete in two hours. That means they h ave time to take advantage of other shooting opportunities while they are at the range. In addition to standard ri e and pistol ranges, Okeechobee Shooting Sports offers ve stand, trap and skeet, shooting galleries and 3D archery. They host Registered NSSA (National Skeet Shooting Association) and ATA (Amateur Trapshooters Association) shoots. They h ave seen growing interest in the long-shooting area; the facility offers a 500-yard shooting experience three times a month, usually completely booked in advance. One day a month, the shoot allows use of a 50 caliber ri es. The range also o ers customers the chance to bring or rent automatic and large caliber guns. They even h ave some of these types of guns to rent, including a Barrett 50 cal ri e. “People will say they only want to try it,” said Je “But it’s like going to an amusement park. They come back and want to do it again.” And then there’s the zombie shoot. Every six weeks or so, starting at dusk, under the direction of range o cers, shooters navigate a course featuring bleeding zombie targets. The zombie shoots are booked in advance. “People drive three hours or better to come to a zombie shoot,” said Je The facility also works with local youth groups, hosting shoots for 4-H and FFA clubs. Many parents bring their kids out to learn to shoot. There is no age limit, so long as the child is responsible, parents provide proper supervision and safety rules are followed. Even four-legged members of the family come along. Some hunters bring their dogs to the range to accustom them to the sound of gun re. Other shooters bring well-mannered family pets who enjoy a day outdoors. The dog owners of course must follow safety rules. The Okeechobee Shooting Sports complex covers 100 acres (with plans to expand) and includes a pro shop and a members’ lounge, as well as a gunsmith shop. The complex is open ThursdaySunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Monday-Wednesday by appointment. Rates for shooting are by the day. Memberships are also available but not necessar y to shoot there. Je said shooters who are used to paying hourly rates at indoor ranges are pleasantly surprised by the daily rates a t the outdoor range. He said they also pride themselves on providing a friendly atmosphere. For more information online, see okeshooting.com.

Details such as a stage coach add realism to the scenario. Even the public restrooms are disguised, hidden inside a stage stop and a blacksmith shop. Cowboy Action Shooting requires competitors to use rearms typical of the mid-to-late 19th century: single action revolvers, lever action ri es chambered in pistol calibers, side-by-side double barrel shotguns (also referred to as a Coach Gun) or 1897-style pumpaction shotguns. Both original and reproduction guns are equally acceptable. Single Action Shooting Society (SASS) competitors are required to wear an Old West costume of some sort, and safety glasses must be worn while shooting. Competition involves a number of separate shooting scenarios known as “stages.” Stages are always di erent, each typically requiring ten revolver rounds (shooters generally carry two single-action revolvers), nine or ten ri e rounds, and two to eight shotgun rounds. Targets typically are steel plates that ring/clang/ ding when hit. The OK Corral Gun Club is proud to o er ten unique stages for Cowboy Action competitions. A spacious clubhouse with a central stone replace also has a western air. The club house is available for rental for private parties and club events, with catered meals available.
