Take the steps to prevent Diabetes BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentNovember is recognized as American Diabetes Month and the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments encourage awareness of this deadly disease. Diabetes is a disease where the body is unable to produce insulin or when the body does not use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that your body needs to convert sugar, starches and other foods into energy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) more than 18 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, with diabetes as the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. There are two different kinds of diabetes. Type-1 diabetes is when the body fails to produce insulin. People with this type must get daily shots of insulin to survive. Type-2 diabetes is when the body fails to make enough insulin or properly use insulin. Type-2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed, but Type 1 cannot. When a person has diabetes, they also have an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney disease, or blindness. There is no known cure for diabetes, but there is treatment. Some of the signs of diabetes can include excessive thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, increased tiredness, increased irritability and blurry vision. Sometimes family history plays a part in whether a person develops diabetes, but other factors such as being over weight or lack of exercise appear to play a role as well. Diet, exercise and new medicines can prevent or delay much of the illness and complications of diabetes. Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose level higher than normal, but not high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Research studies have found that moderate weight loss and exercise can prevent or delay type-2 diabetes among adults at high-risk of diabetes. Ask your health care provider about getting tested and take the appropriate steps to prevent diabetes. The goal is to get active and stay active by doing things you enjoy, from gardening to playing tennis to walking with friends. Try to get moving and make exercise a part of your daily life.

If left untreated, over time, the situation could get worse, potentially leading to more fractures, chronic pain, or even disability or early death. Meet Jeanie Joas, an active woman in her 50s, who walks ve miles at a time with weights, does yoga, spinning and hikes recreationally, while supplementing these activities with a healthy, calcium-rich diet. What she thought were two unrelated accidents three years ago -breaking her wrist while hiking and later fracturing a bone in her foot skiing -turned out to be osteoporosis. Given her age, these fractures should have been a red ag for her doctors, but there was no recognition of the greater issue. Then two years ago, Joas had a regularlyscheduled bone density test that indicated rapid, signi cant bone loss. If her osteoporosis had been detected earlier, treatment could have started sooner and her second fracture may have been prevented. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, Joas is not unique. Worldwide, one in two women and one in ve men over age 50 will suffer a fragility fracture, and in the United States, 2 million broken bones occur annually due to osteoporosis -as people with osteoporosis may experience a fracture even from slight bumps or a fall from standing height in the course of daily activities. Here are steps you can take to become your own advocate when it comes to long-term bone health: Osteoporosis is often referred to as a “silent disease” because it has no signs or symptoms until a fracture occurs. Break the silence. Talk to your doctor about bone mineral density testing and fracture risk assessment. In conjunction with the World Osteoporosis Day campaign, a recent report by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), ‘Capture the Fracture – A Global Campaign to Break the Fragility Fracture Cycle’, reveals approximately 80 percent of patients treated in clinics or hospitals following a fracture are not screened for osteoporosis or risk of future falls. People with a previous osteoporotic fracture are twice as likely to suffer a second. If you’re over 50 and experience a fracture, especially at the wrist, upper arm, pelvis, hip or spine, don’t leave the clinic or hospital without a screening.  IOF’s report and subsequent global World Osteoporosis Day campaign, with participation from more than 90 countries, is intended to educate physicians and patients about the importance of testing and treatment to prevent future fractures, thereby reducing healthcare costs in the process. By investing in bone health, you can prevent painful fractures and bigger problems down the line. Broken Bone? It Could be Osteoporosis

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 15, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThere are over 90 species of king sher throughout the world, but only three species exist in North America north of Mexico. Of these, the Belted King sher is the most widespread. Belted King shers breed as far north as Alaska and winter as far south as northern South America. They reside in Florida, but are rare or local breeders in peninsula Florida where they are occasionally reported nesting and raising 1 brood from April through July. These stocky medium-sized birds have a large head with a shaggy crest on the top and back of the head and a straight, thick, black pointed bill with a grey base. Belted King shers have short legs and a medium length squaretipped tails. Adults are a ashy bird with a slate blue head, large white collar, and large blue band on the breast and white underparts. They are powder blue above with ne white spotting on the wings and tail. Females have a broad rusty band on their bellies. Juveniles are similar to the adults, but they have irregular rusty spotting in the breast band. Their loud rattling call is often heard before they are seen. If threatened it may scream, y back and forth, or spread its wings while defending their territory. Belted King shers need access to bodies of water were they hunt from a perch that overhangs water or hover overhead in search of food. Their diet consists of sh, cray sh, crustaceans, insects, amphibians, reptiles, young birds, small mammals and berries. Their nest is an excavated burrow in an earthen bank that is dug by the male and female with males spending about twice as much time digging as the female. The female lays 5 to 8 eggs in an unlined chamber of the burrow. Both parents share in incubating the eggs for 23 to 24 days and feed the young until they edge at about 23 days of age.

BY AMANDA NALLEY FWCThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) honored Florida’s heroes on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, by implementing changes to commercial licensing requirements. The changes will make it easier for Florida veterans and veterans with disabilities to enter the commercial shing industry. Governor Rick Scott said, “We have a tremendous opportunity not only to give thanks to the men and women that served our nation so courageously, but also to provide them with more support so they can pursue careers in shing here in Florida. This initiative will expand job opportunities for our veterans and get more folks involved in the commercial shing industry, which is a winwin for Florida.” The Commission adopted the changes at its September meeting and made a formal announcement of the changes in a media event on Nov. 9. “I am excited to be extending this opportunity to the men and women who so bravely served our country,” said Commissioner Charles W. Roberts III. “Job creation and Florida’s economy are priorities for everyone, including the FWC. Our hope is that more of Florida’s veterans and veterans with disabilities, especially those who have recently returned from active duty, will be able to partake in the commercial seafood industry and bene t from this opportunity.” The changes will modify income requirements for many of Florida veterans seeking a commercial restricted species endorsement, which allows commercial harvesters to sh for and sell species that are designated as restricted. Spanish and king mackerel, ounder, shrimp, mahi mahi and several reef sh are among the list of species that require a restricted species endorsement. Currently, commercial harvesters attempting to qualify for a restricted species endorsement must have a Florida Saltwater Products License, which is Florida’s commercial saltwater shing license, and be able to attribute $5,000 or 25 percent of their total annual income during one of the past three years to sales of saltwater products. With the new changes in place, restricted species endorsement income requirements will be waived for one license year (July 1 June 30) for Florida veterans who were honorably discharged between Sept. 11, 2001, and June 30, 2014. After June 30, 2014, this income-requirement waiver will continue to extend to Florida veterans as long as they apply within four years of an honorable discharge. The one-license-year waiver also extends to all honorably discharged veterans with serviceconnected disabilities, regardless of when they were discharged. After the one-year waiver expires, veterans with service-connected disabilities will also have a reduced income requirement of $2,500 instead of $5,000. All other veterans must meet the $5,000 income requirement after the one-year waiver expires. To qualify for these exemptions, veterans must be certi ed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs or the U.S. Armed Forces to have at least a 10-percent disability that is serviceconnected. “I salute the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission for making it easier for Florida’s veterans to become commercial shermen,” said Mike Prendergast, executive director of the Florida Department of Veterans’ Affairs. “With more than 1.6 million veterans in Florida, including nearly 260,000 with serviceconnected disabilities, this new opportunity provides an avenue to help them achieve their dreams after honorable military service.” Applicants should visit MyFWC.com/License and click on “Commercial Saltwater Products” or call 850-487-3122. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 FREE OFFICE CALL AND EXAMwith this ad for a limited time.

Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 15, 2012 The Glades Tobacco Free Partnerships and Tobacco Free Florida Commemorate the Great American SmokeoutThe Glades Tobacco Free Partnership and the statewide Tobacco Free Florida program have a message for tobacco users this Great American Smokeout: There is a Quitter In You. The Great American Smokeout on Thursday, Nov. 15 is an ideal day for smokers to nd their inner quitter. This observance, currently in its 37th year, is sponsored by the American Cancer Society and raises awareness about the dangers of smoking and the many effective resources available to successfully quit. We are encouraging smokers to make a quit plan during the Great American Smokeout or to plan in advance to quit smoking that day. A comprehensive quit plan is key to quitting for good. Tobacco Free Florida’s free evidencebased resources can help tobacco users set a personalized plan that includes counseling from a certi ed and trained Quit Coach and FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapy (NRT), when appropriate. This combined approach can double to triple a tobacco user’s chance of quitting. “The most important step a smoker can take for a healthier and longer life is to quit smoking,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “We urge Floridians to take advantage of our resources, and what better time to do so than during the Great American Smokeout. The American Cancer Society has been an invaluable partner in our efforts to help smokers quit.” Seven out of 10 adult smokers report that they want to quit completely. Those who have not been successful in the past should continue trying because most former smokers make several attempts before quitting permanently. Tobacco Free Florida offers three ways to quit:  CALL: Call the Florida Quitline at 1-877-U-CAN-NOW to speak with a Quit Coach who will help you assess your addiction and help you create a personalized quit plan.  CLICK: Enroll in the Web Coach, which will help you create your own webbased quit plan that’s right for you, visit https://www.quitnow.net/ orida.  COME IN: Sign up for Quit Smoking Now group classes at your local Are a Health Education Center (AHEC) by calling Angelica Pena at (863) 902 – 3019.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 15, 2012 By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County Democrat The Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) has yet to release the identity of two people who were killed in an accident on S.R. 78 E. at its intersection with U.S. 27 Sunday afternoon. According to an FHP report the operator of the 2009 Yamaha motorcycle and a passenger were pronounced dead at the scene by paramedics with Glades County EMS. Their identity is being withheld pending noti cation of the next of kin, stated Trooper Travis Parks in the report. That report stated that the operator of the motorcycle was southbound on S.R. 78 E. around 3:22 p.m. on Nov. 11. A second motorcycle, operated by Gabriel Baldomero, 73, of Homestead, was in front of the Yamaha and traveling in the same direction. When the two motorcycles approached the intersection of S.R. 78 E. and U.S. 27 the Yamaha failed to slow down and struck the 2004 Harley Davidson Roadking operated by Mr. Baldomero. The impact caused Mr. Baldomero to lose control of his motorcycle, which fell to the highway on its right side. Trooper Parks went on to state that the Yamaha then ran the stop sign at the intersection and ran into the right side of a 2008 Hyundai Sonata driven by Diane Marie Schiell, 61, of North Port. The impact of this collision caused the operator and the passenger on the Yamaha to be thrown from the motorcycle, stated the report. Diane Schiell and Wendell Carl Schiell, 61, also of North Port, were both taken to Hendry Regional Medical Center with minor injuries, stated Trooper Parks. Mr. Baldomero's injuries were apparently minor in nature and he was not taken to a hospital. Trooper Parks stated that the crash is still under investigation.

For more on the Senior Night celebration, see next week’s edition of the Glades County Democrat. By Barbara BrownGlades County Woman's Club That's my kind of clubstart with refreshments rst! Following a wonderful feast of dips, chips, and home baked goodies, served by Ticia Boland and Dee Dee Beck, the November meeting of the Glades County Woman's Club opened with the standard pledge and invocation. Kandi Snow announced that due to case of "education overload" secretary Dianne Tillery had tendered her resignation, and requested the club elect a new secretary to nish the year. Patsy Lucas, was unanimously elected and installed. A basket of food for a deserving family is being lled, and will be delivered by Dee Dee Beck and Bonita Drayton in time for Thanksgiving. This is an annual project of Woman's Club, and the family will also be presented with a gift certi cate from our local IGA Grocery store to be used to purchase a turkey or ham to complete their Thanksgiving dinner. A wonderful "perk" of being a club member is a dinner paid for by club dues. In order for snowbird club members to take advantage of this bene t, it was decided to have the dues pay for the dinner at the Christmas party instead of the installation dinner in May, as many have returned to their "other" home. This year the Christmas party will be held on Dec. 6th with Cracker Cookin' & Caterin" serving the dinner at The Westergaard House. Members are encouraged to bring a prospective member to this affair. A gift exchange will feature a Chinese Auction with presents being re-gifts, or if you absolutely cannot part with something, there is a $5 limit to be paid for something new. If a member brings a guest, please be sure to bring a gift for her, and be prepared to pay for her dinner, which will be served at 7 p.m. Reservations must be made no later than Monday, Nov. 26, by calling Patsy Lucas at 227-6201 or emailing her at patsysrvhome@yahoo.com. The club voted to serve pulled pork sandwiches and hot chocolate again this year at the Christmas on the Caloosahatchee festival. This fund raiser will be used to help fund scholarships that the club presents. Regular meetings of Glades County Woman's Club are held on the second Thursda y of the month (except December) from September-May. If you would like further information, please contact any member.

Editor’s note: County Commissioner Donna S torter Long shared these notes from the Nov. 13 m eeting of the Glades County Board of Commiss ioners. PRESENTATIONS / AWARDS 1. Retirement – Joyce Wilson (Larry Luckey) Property Appraiser Larry Luckey presented employee Joyce Wilson a plaque of appreciation for her 27 years working for Glades County, of which the last 21 were for Mr. Luckey. Mrs. Wilson is retiring November 30 and has the best wishes of her cow orkers, county of cials and staff for an enjoyable retirement. BUSINESS AGENDA 3. Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (Hilton) Board approved assigning the administration of LIHEAP to Goodwill Industries as a sub-contractor for Agricultural and Labor Program Inc. (ALPI). Goodwill will provide staff for this service in Moore Haven and beginning in January, it will be a full-time position. 4. Purchase Brush Chipper off Government Contract (Avant Brown) Board approved Road Sup’t Brown’s request to purchase a Morbark brush chipper. 5. Request: Revise Date for Annual Hazardous W aste Collection (Taylor) Board approved Hardee County’s request to change the annual hazardous waste collection date from January 26 to January 19, 2013. 7. Business Park Infrastructure (Tommy Perry) COMBINED WITH 8. Strategic Plan for County Park (Banyan / Pringle) with Commissioner Echols declaring con ict and abstention. Board approved the Strategic Plan prepared by FGCU’s Dr. Margaret Banyan following the overview presentation by Attorney Richard Pringle. Before the v ote was taken, Dr. Banyan summarized the plan for a campus-approach development of the countyowned parcel on the corner of US27 and SR78 west of Moore Haven Tommy Perry, Chairman of Glades Economic Development Council outlined plans to include the county’s participation in a federal grant application for funding of utility infrastructure in the parcel and also extend it westward to a site proposed for a travel center. Dr. Banyan’s presentation of the site plan prepared by Ensite was also approved by the Board w hich authorized the engineers to proceed with nal CAD design of the park amenities, with the road and utility infrastructure to be designed to exit on the southwest corner to make possible the continuation to and connection with the proposed travel center. The Board further approved the concept that the proposed education center will be the focal point for the development. The Board agreed to apply for infrastructure funding grant with the assistance of the EDC to obtain approximately $950,000 for the project with an application deadline of December 13, with expected announcement of award by January 1, 2013. The application will include letters of support from three projects -the travel center, education center, and industrial business in light manufacturingthat propose to create new jobs in the amounts of 70, 20, and 90 respectively. The grant funding is tied to proposed job creation, and is based on $5000 funding per job created by the project. Commissioner Beck expressed concern on maintaining the ability to withdraw if the economics of the project did not warrant the expenditures. The City-County Public Works Authority already has $300,000 encumbered for infrastructure placement on the county’s parcel. Mr. Perry explained that the current owner of the proposed travel center site is owner of the property between travel center and the county’s development, and has agreed to donate the property for the extension of the infrastructure from the county site to the travel center site. He also told the Board the travel center site is expected to generate $400,000 in fuel tax revenue to Glades County per year, based on expected sales of diesel in the amount of six million gallons per year. Commissioner Storter sought clari cation from Dr. Banyan about extending an access road from the county’s site, as originally the road within the county’s development was to loop through for ingress and egress from SR78 and would not create a thru-way road. Dr. Banyan explained that the extension point had initially been included and the current plans re ect the change of the road location to accommodate the EDC plan. She further explained that design and construction of the road would be such to deter thru-traf c with narrow roadways, street-side parking, shortened curves, and narrowed approaches at the cross-over of the irrigation canal between the properties. The expected cost of the utility infrastructure is unknown at this time, but with the application deadline looming, the Board agreed to go forward with the application, and if/when awarded, can consider to accept or reject the conditions of the award. The EDC was unable to present this concept sooner until the proposed travel center developer committed to the project, and that commitment is based on the existence of utility infrastructure in place before the travel center construction commences. CONSTITUTIONAL OFFICERS COUNTY ATTORNEY Attorney Pringle stated that he has received response from architect and construction manager selected for the Emergency Operations Center and is working on the negotiated contract. Pringle stated that Seacoast bank is proceeding to foreclose on its mortgage with property on which the County holds a second SHIP mortgage. He stated the bank is seeking its $6,900 on the property, which is valued by the Property Appraiser at $46,000. The county’s second mortgage is approximately $30,000. Commissioner Beck inquired if Seacoast would discount their lien if the county would pay it off to become primary mortgage holder. Commissioner Storter inquired of the location and condition of the property and expressed disinterest in going forward to acquire the rst mortgage position and then pursuing foreclosure by the county with the unknowns. Mr. Pringle will bring back more information of alternative action for the county to consider at the next meeting. Mr. Pringle thanked Commissioner Jones for his service to Glades County. COUNTY MANAGER & DEPARTMENT HEADS Mr. Taylor stated he will meet with Public Safety staff, the EOC architect and construction manager tomorrow; he said the proposed negotiated contracts will be submitted to the state funding source for approval, and when that is received, the Board will then vote on approval of the contracts. He states he expects ground to be broken on the project January 2nd. Community Development Director Larry Hilton answered Commissioner Storter’s inquiry of why the Ortona Community Center project was not on the agenda by stating he had not been told exactly where the new site was to be. But he had inquired of Glades Electric Utilities and was told that underground service would cost from $10,000 to $30,000 depending on the distance from existing service, unless the building was placed nearer the old railroad right-of-way now owned by Lykes who would have to grant a utility easement for overhead service to be provided to the east side of the property. Hilton said it would also require relocating water lines from the well, and redesign of the septic system, and possible site work. Commissioner Storter requested Mr. Hilton to meet with her at the Ortona site to determine the best location. Ortona Community Association Secretary Debra Richardson addressed the Board requesting invitation to participate in the site selection process by herself and OCA Directors Sheldon Barroquillo, Marie Kussman and Marge Vanderbent, OCA Treasurer, which invitation was extended by Commissioner Storter. Mr. Hilton stated the current owner of the majority of the lots in the Hidden Lakes subdivision north of Crescent Acres had requested letters from the county of intent to vacate roads in Hidden Lakes. The Board consensus was that before vacation of roads would be considered, the current owner’s plans for development should be disclosed. Storter stated the subdivision plat itself may need to be vacated. PUBLIC INPUT ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS Mark Morton, member of Florida Heartland Rural Economic Development Initiative, thanked Commissioner Jones for his involvement with and participation with FHREDI. COMMISSIONERS ITEMS AND COMMENTS Commissioner Storter thanked the Economic Development Council for taking time to meet with her about the proposed travel center development and she thanked Dr. Banyan for a job well done. Commissioner Beck noted it had been a pleasure working with Commissioner Jones the last twelve years, and noted that after Jones was defeated in the primary election, he continued in serving the count y and performing all his duties. Commissioner Echols stated though the Moore Haven Canal project had seemed to be a dead issue, he had recently met with Corps of Engineers and the new leadership seemed receptive to the plans, and determined that an in-depth “408” review that requires federal review and approval from Washington DC, would not be required for Corps approval of the permit. Commissioner Jones commented on his 20years of service to the county as commissioner, noting he had served with two county attorneys, numerous county managers and 12 county commissioners. He commended Attorney Pringle, Public Safety Director Bob Jones, Road Sup’t Avant Brown, County Manager Wendell Taylor and Communit y Development Director Larry Hilton, stating Hilton was the best thing to happen to Glades County in the twenty years he had served as commissioner. Jones stated he hoped the two new commissioners would support the projects presented today. ADJOURN These agenda notes are prepared by Donn a Storter who is solely responsible for their content. Please note: the next BOCC meeting is Monda y Nov. 26 at 6 p.m. Prior to the meeting, a reception is being hosted for incoming commissioners starting at 5 p.m.. When the meeting commences, Attorney Pringle will preside having Judge Jack Lund y perform the swearing-in ceremony of Dennis Grif n, District 1 Commissioner and Tim Stanley, District 5 Commissioner. Pringle will then lead the board in reorganizing to select a new chair who will resume the meeting. The public is invited.
