2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 21, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon Three Kite species are currently breeding in South Florida: the White-tailed Kite, Snail Kite and the Swallow-tailed Kite. During the Big “O” Birding Festival groups reported Swallow-tailed Kites at locations in Hendry and Glades County. The Swallow-tailed kite is a graceful black and white raptor that the Calusa called “Tati-na”, spirit that soars. It rarely ap its wings while ying, but almost continuously rotates its tail, often to nearly 90 degrees, in order to hold a heading, make a sharp turn, or trace tight circles while drifting across the sky. It has relatively small feet and beak for a raptor, which results in a diverse diet of small prey that includes insects, reptiles, amphibians, small birds and a small number of mammals. These graceful yers frequently eat while ying and get water by skimming the surface and gathering water in their bills. Vocalization is a shrill “klee-klee-klee.” The Swallow-tailed kite migrates from South America to nest in Florida swamps, and may be seen from March to September ying above roadways and trees in the inland counties searching for food. Large numbers of birds gather at staging roosts in South Florida in late July and August before they migrate south for the winter. You can help Swallow-tailed kite researchers determine the distribution, monitor population trends and locate important nesting and foraging sites. Sightings of nests, roosts, kites carrying nest material or food, locations where kites are seen regularly, and sightings of more than one kite are of particular interest. Information can be submitted on Cornell’s website at http://ebird.org. Go to the Hendry-Glades Audubon website for information about the Stormwater Treatment Area 5 driving trips. There are openings for the April 13 and April 27 and monthly trips scheduled May through October. Reservations are required. Send an e-mail to Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202. Include your name and contact information including an emergency cell number, the date you want attend the STA5 trip and the number of participants in your party.

DON WIESEMAN JOAN WIESEMAN & Joan and Don Wieseman will celebrate their 60th Wedding Anniversary on March 31, 2013. Don and Joan (nee Korbelik) traveled to Jackson, MS, along with their friends Donna and Clyde to be joined in wedded bliss. A small one-bedroom trailer was called home for the “rst few years of their marriage. Once expecting their 2nd child, they moved into Dons boyhood home and remain their today next door to Dave Wieseman; Dons brother. Don retired in 1989 following 37+ years of Federal Service, most of those with the Missouri Air National Guard.

Summers are never complete without their annual visit to Oshkosh, WI, for the EAA AirVenture Fly-In. They are blessed with three children; oldest being Don Jr. and wife Mindi in Pembroke ANNIVERSARY BY BOB WATTENDORF FWCAngling ethics is about common sense and courtesy. It contributes to every angler’s safety, success and enjoyment, as well as the future of our sport. Conservation agencies, including the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC), shing guides, tourism destinations, marinas, tackle shops, anglers and boaters all play a role in making shing more fun and satisfying for everyone. Most share an abiding love for aquatic resources and the role conservation stewardship plays in keeping our natural resources pristine. The following list is a good reminder. An ethical angler: Promotes, through example and mentoring, an ethical use of aquatic resources. Values and respects the aquatic environment and all living things. Treats other anglers, boaters and property owners with courtesy and respect, including removing boat trailers promptly from active launching areas, watching wakes around other boaters, and not crowding other anglers. Avoids spilling and never dumps pollutants, such as gas or oil. Properly disposes of trash, including worn lines, leaders and hooks. Recycles whenever possible and keeps shing sites litter-free. Purchases required shing licenses and permits. (Exempt anglers often buy a license anyway, to contribute to conservation. All shing license dollars go to the FWC – and increase matching federal funds for Sport Fish Restoration. See MyFWC.com/License.) Learns and obeys angling and boating regulations and can identify local sh to adhere to the rules. Keeps no more sh than needed for consumption. Carefully handles and releases all sh that are unwanted or illegal to keep, minimizing harm to the sh. (Details follow). Takes measures to prevent spread of exotic plants and animals and does not use diseased or nonnative baits. Participates in conservation efforts such as river cleanups, vegetation transplanting, tagging studies and creel surveys. Practices safe angling and boating by following the laws and using common sense to prevent injury to himself/herself, others or property. Protects the environment from boat damage, including prop-scouring of vegetation, wake damage to shorelines, power-loading problems at ramps, or striking animals such as manatees or sturgeons. Conserves energy and water, knowing both affect local sh and wildlife. “Releasing larger bass is one of the best contributions anglers can make toward the future of Florida’s bass shing,” says Tom Champeau, director of the Division of Freshwater Fisheries Management. Even though it’s the right thing to do, it’s nice to have an extra incentive. Hence the TrophyCatch program, which rewards anglers for releasing trophy bass with prizes donated by the shing industry. Just registering enrolls anglers into a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Bass caught on live baits or arti cial worms often swallow a hook, thus reducing their chances for survival. Biologists recommend setting the hook immediately after a strike, which increases the chance of hooking the sh in the mouth. Land the sh quickly without exhausting it. Barbless hooks contribute to easier and quicker releases. If you don’t have a barbless hook, simply pinch down the barbs with shing pliers. Remember: Smaller hooks do less harm than larger ones; single hooks are better than trebles; and circle hooks are best of all. Don’t use rough or knotted landing nets that cause abrasions as a sh thrashes about and scrapes its mucus, that slimy coating that serves as a primary defense against disease. When releasing bass, be gentle. Grip it by the lower jaw and, if possible, keep it in the water when removing a hook. “Don’t drop or throw a sh back,” advises Champeau. “Instead, lower it gently into the water so it can swim away.” If a sh is taken from the water to measure or photograph, avoid touching its eyes and gills. Support a heavy sh’s body with your other hand if you must lift it out of the water. One of the most crucial rules is to avoid keeping the sh out of water for more than 30 seconds at a time (approximately as long as you hold your breath). So have your camera, scales and measuring tape ready to go. You can place the sh back in a livewell or dip it over the side to let it breathe if you need to reset for another photo. The livewell should be aerated, at nearly the same temperature as the lake water and, if desired, you can use uniodized salt to stimulate slime production (0.5 pounds salt per 10 gallons of water). Never place sh in chlorinated tap water. Commercial de-hookers, long-nose pliers or hemostats reduce stress. If the sh is hooked too deeply, simply cut the line and leave the hook. The sh’s digestive juices will erode the hook. Let’s keep Florida the Fishing Capital of the World by recycling our catches. Also, let the FWC help you boast about your catch by sharing your photos and claiming your rewards at TrophyCatchFlorida.com. Angling Ethics, Common Sense Linked The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services supported ve Florida companies to sell Florida products at Gulfood 2013, the world’s largest annual food and hospitality show, held in Dubai last month. The department regularly conducts trade missions and works trade events in the United States and in foreign countries to bring awareness to Florida products and increase sales overseas. The agency partnered with the Southern United States Trade Association for this year’s Gulfood event. “Florida produces some of the highest-quality and best-tasting food products in the world, and international demand for these products continues to grow,” said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. “With our support on trade missions, Florida’s overall exports of agricultural products have increased by $1.2 billion, or 40 percent, during the past ve years.” The event hosted 137 U.S. companies, including ve from Florida: Florida’s Natural Growers LTA International Global Services Bouras Global Trading Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company Kizable Kandy, LLC Collectively, the companies sold $1.2 million of products on site and have another $4.8 million in projected sales.

BY TONY YOUNG FWCBecause my turkey-huntin’ song, “Waitin’ on Tom,” featuring this year’s head-to-head Grand National turkey-calling champion and good friend Scott Ellis, is the theme song to the National Wild Turkey Federation’s “Turkey Call” TV show, I was invited to attend and perform at the federation’s annual convention in Nashville, Tennessee, and offered some great opportunities. Needless to say, I am de nitely still in full hunting mode, very blessed and especially ready for spring turkey season. I hope you’ve already started brushing up on your turkey calling, ’cause spring gobbler season’s here. Whether you prefer to use a mouth call, box call, slate or any combination, March means it’s time to talk turkey. Youth hunters can bene t from the two-day youth spring turkey hunting season the weekend prior to the opening of spring turkey season in each hunting zone. This Youth Spring Turkey Hunt occurs on private lands and on 78 of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s (FWC) wildlife management areas (WMAs). In Zone A (south of State Road 70) this year, that weekend was Feb. 23-24. In the rest of the state, that weekend falls on March 9-10. Only those under 16 years old are allowed to harvest a turkey while supervised by an adult, 18 years or older. On private land, no license or permit is required of the youth or supervising adult, unless the adult plans to help “call-in” the bird or otherwise participate in the hunt. In that case, he or she will need a hunting license and turkey permit. 48 of the 78 participating WMAs require a youth spring turkey quota permit, and if the adult supervisor is going to attempt to call in a bird on any of the 78 WMAs, he or she also will need a management area permit in addition to a hunting license and turkey permit. But, keep in mind that adults are not allowed to do the shooting – only the kids may harvest a bird. For safety reasons, during spring turkey hunts on WMAs, the only rearms that can be used are shotguns and muzzleloading shotguns, using shot no larger than number two. All legal bows and crossbows can also be used, but all ri es, pistols, buckshot, and slugs are prohibited during spring turkey hunts on WMAs. This rule does not apply, however, to private property, where any legal ri e, shotgun, muzzleloader, crossbow, bow, or pistol can be used to take turkeys. One of the most coveted and sought-after game species in Florida is the Osceola turkey, also known as the Florida turkey. This unique bird is one of ve subspecies of wild turkey in North America. The Osceola lives only on the Florida peninsula and nowhere else in the world, making it extremely popular with out-of-state hunters. It is similar to the eastern subspecies (found in the Panhandle) but tends to be a bit smaller and typically darker with less white barring on the wings’ primary ight feathers. The NWTF and the FWC recognize any wild turkey harvested within or south of the counties of Dixie, Gilchrist, Alachua, Union, Bradford, Clay and Duval to be the Osceola subspecies. Eastern turkeys and hybrids are found north and west of these counties into the Panhandle. For us adults, the highly anticipated spring turkey season comes in rst in Zone A and runs March 2 – April 7. In zones B, C and D (except for Holmes County), it runs March 16 – April 21. In Holmes County, the season runs March 16-31. Hunters may take bearded turkeys and gobblers only, and the daily bag limit is one. The season and possession limit on turkeys is two, except in Holmes County, where the season limit is one. Shooting hours on private lands are onehalf hour before sunrise to sunset, but on WMAs, you must quit hunting at 1 p.m. To participate in spring turkey hunting, you’ll need a Florida hunting license and a turkey permit. If you plan to pursue a gobbler on one of Florida’s many WMAs, you also must purchase a management area permit. All of these licenses and permits are available at your county tax collector’s of ce, most retail outlets that sell hunting and shing supplies, by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA or online at License.MyFWC.com. And if you didn’t put in for a special-opportunity or quota permit, don’t worry; several WMAs don’t require them. Visit MyFWC.com/Hunting and click on “Where to spring turkey hunt without needing a quota permit” to see a list of WMAs where you need only a hunting license, management area permit and turkey permit to hunt spring turkeys. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.65/g. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 10.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 10.7 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 4.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 15.0 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The national average has seemingly found some relative stability in the last week,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “And while the national average hasn’t seen much movement, some areas of the country have seen volatility continue, mainly in the Great Lakes states where prices may again be poised to rise in the next couple of days as wholesale prices reverberate as re neries continue their maintenance schedules and the progressive switch over to summer gasoline continues,” DeHaan said.

Applicants for the position included Charles Bosco, Public Works Director for Malaga, New Jersey; Crystal Drake, a Moore Haven teacher; Frank Spence, a City and County Manager with 35 years experience; Gary Rawlings of Fort Myers; Greg Wood, a former county administrator in Georgia; Guy Maxcy, former county manager in Florida; J ohnny Granger a former township manager in Pennsylvania; Johnny Limbaugh, a 20y ear veteran with the Florida Department of Transportation; Karen Degges of Gainesville; Noah Powers, a former school administrator from Vero Beach; Phillip Ludos, for policy chief from Michigan; Raymond Van Houten of Labelle; Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia of Harrisburg, Penn.; Richard Giroux, former city manager and public safety director in Ohio; Robert Museus, a former Wisconsin city administrator; Stuart McCutcheon, former re chief from Lake Alfred; Thomas Corbitt, retired Colonel of the United States Air Force; and, Timothy Day, former Mayor from Cape Coral. Commissioner Donna Storter Long said she was not comfortable with the salary level offered and she suggested $135,000 annually. Commissioner Russell Echols opposed the mandatory residency in the county. He supported an extension of the application process for 30 days. The commission took no action on those recommendations and moved ahead with the ranking. Three applicants, Mr. Granger, Mr. Corbitt, and Mr. Powers were ranked by all ve commissioners. Mr. Mendez-Saldivia was ranked by four commissioners. Mr. Limbaugh, Mr. Maxcy and Mr. Giroux received support from three commissioners. Mr. Beck suggested the commission interview these seven applicants and the other commissioners agreed. The county will also have background checks done on these applicants. The commission will interview the applicants via Skype rst and could elect to conduct an in person interview at a later date. The commission will learn the result of the background checks on March 25, con rm the applicant's interest in the position, and then set the interview date for the applicants. The Emergency Operation Center project moved ahead as commissioners approved the funding agreement with the State of Florida for the $4 million grant approved for the project. They also worked out details with Ajax Construction. The county will have nal say on the selection of sub contractors that are used. The county will submit a list of sub contractors that they want Ajax to receive bids from. Commissioner Russell Echols said he met with the contractor, somewhat reluctantly, to work out issues he was concerned about. Last month he complained the contractor would get too much of a pro t and the county would not have a large enough facility under the original proposal. He said the company pro t would be capped at $200,000. Mr. Beck said he is con dent Glades County will not be taken advantage of and that they have gotten the companies attention. He moved to approve further negotiations on a construction contract with Ajax. "I was tired of fooling with them. The (county) attorney explained this to me at some length, and I'm willing to move forward at this point in time," he added. Mr. Echols said he felt these stipulations will speed up the timetable of construction. Commissioner Long voted against the motion. The commission supported a resolution to support the 2nd amendment to the United States Constitution and the right to bare arms. The commission elected not to pursue a nine-acre tract on Daniels Road near Moore Haven assessed at approximately $75,000 that will be made surplus by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. The commission also supported an enterprise zone utility tax ordinance that would provide new and expanding businesses the opportunity to apply for a rebate of sales taxes paid to the state of Florida for electrical energy for up to ve years. Tracy Whirls with the Glades Economic Council said it would serve as an incentive to attract businesses to the community. The commission also appointed Mr. Scott Bass to the enterprise zone development agency to represent the Glades Count y School Board and workforce board of South West Florida. The commissioner reappointed Ellen Beers, Jack Wilson and Steve Dobbs to a two-year term on the Glades County Planning Commission. There is one planning board opening to ll as Charlie Morningstar indicated he did not desire to be reappointed. That seat will be appointed at the April meeting. The commission also approved a resolution of support for priorities that were set by the 16-County Ecosystem Summit that comprises all of the counties in South Florida. The priorities included restoration o f the Herbert Hoover Dike and an increase in the annual appropriation for rehabilitation of the dike by appropriate governmental agencies. A second priority was continued funding of the Kissimmee River restoration, funds for the C-44 reservoir and storm water treatment area in western Martin County, support for the C-43 reservoir along the Caloosahatchee River, and an updated Water Resources Development Act that addressed crucial elements of the ecosystem restoration. The commission also approved a temporary increase in pay for Acting County Manager Larry Hilton to mirror the rate of pa y given to the former County Manager during the time he serves in this position. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 21, 2013 o sell, traf cking in a controlled substance h ydrocodone), traf cking in a controlled u bstance (morphine) and operating a drug h ouse (two counts). She is being held on 270,000 bond. According to an arrest report by Detective ergeant Steve Harris, of the Glades County heriff's Of ce (GCSO), Grindler was getting 80 hydrocodone pills a month and Arnold w ould get 90 morphine tablets each month. The arrest report went on to state that G rindler told GCSO investigators that he was e lling the pills to pay his property tax. He e portedly said he owes $3,000 in back taxes o Glades County. The detective's arrest report also indicated that Grindler made a statement that pills were moving fast and he could sell what he had several times over. Grindler and Arnold were selling the hydrocodone pills for $5 each and the morphine tablets for $7 each, indicated Sgt. Harris' report. "That's very cheap," the detective pointed out. "In that regard, they should have been double that. Morphine was going for $1 a milligram and hydrocodone was selling for $10 to $12 each." In this particular case, he continued, the morphine tablets could have been sold for $15 each. Apparently, neither Grindler nor Arnold have any prior drug arrests.

In order to operate a motorboat of ten horsepower or greater, Florida law requires anyone who was born on or after Jan. 1, 1988 to successfully complete an approved boating safety course and obtain a Boating Safety Education Identi cation Card issued by the FWC. Those born before 1988 are also encouraged to take a safe boating course. The Boating Safety Education Identi cation Card is proof of successful completion of the educational requirements and is valid for life. Boating safety courses can be completed online or in a classroom setting. For information on the online classes, and schedules for the classroom courses, go to www.myfwc.com. The U.S. Coast Guard offers free boating safety checks for pleasure craft. For a free Vessel Safety Check, go online to www.usgboating.org, and click on “Vessel Safety Check.” There is an online form to ll out to request a boating safety check, and a Coast Guard volunteer will contact you to set it up. Make a plan and share it with someone who will not be going out on the water. Write down where you plan to launch your boat (or which lock you will go through), where you plan to go (Lake Okeechobee is a big lake so try to narrow it down a little), who will be on the boat and how long you plan to be out. If you do not return when expected and this person cannot reach you by cell phone or radio, emergency of cials can be alerted to start a search. If no one on shore knows you are missing, you might have a long wait for a rescue. Take a cell phone or emergency radio so that you can call for help if you need it. Be aware, however, that some areas on the big lake get poor or no cell phone reception. So even if you have a phone, it is still important to have the required safety equipment. Take a life jacket for every person in the boat. Wear life jackets when the boat is in motion. Even a good swimmer may be knocked unconscious if the boat hits something and someone is thrown overboard. Children under the age of six must wear life jackets at all times while in the boat. Those who cannot swim, no matter what age, should also wear life jackets at all times while in the boat. Make sure your boat has all of the safety equipment required by the FWC, which includes (but is not limited to) a re extinguisher, visual distress signal, sound producing device (bell, horn, whistle, etc.), back re ame control, ventilator ducts, navigation lights, anchor and anchor line, and an oar or paddle (in case your engine fails). The FWC also recommends vessels be equip with a de-watering device, such as a bilge pump in the event of ooding.

Special to the Glades County Democrat The annual membership tea for Glades County Woman’s Club was hosted by President Kandi Snow at her home on River Road. “Wearing of the Green” was the theme of the party, and prizes went to ladies wearing hats in several categories. “Most Elegant” was w on by Margaret Brown; “Most Wearing of Green” by Kelly Brantley; “Best Themed Out t” by Sue Ilich; and “Now That’s Wild” by Tina He in. Brunch was served by Mrs. Snow from a table centered by a handmade chandelier featuring candles in teacups and saucers. Twenty-four members and guests were seated at tables on her porch with spring owers decorating the tables. As she initiated the new members, Mrs. Snow had to vie with the noise of tractors harvesting cane practically in her backyard. Even though the harv esters were loud, guests were delighted to see this feature of our area’s main crop “up close and personal,” as many of us had only w itnessed sugarcane being harvested from a distance. Mrs. Snow asked the sponsors of each new member to tell why she had chosen the prospective new member; informed them of the club’s objectives and purposes which are: 1. Fellowship with one another and the community. 2. Enlightenment and the promotion of literacy throughout the community and 3. Service and promotion of community welfare wherever possible in Glades County. She then presented each new member with a marigold (the club’s of cial ower) potted in a china teacup with matching saucer. Vice President, Donna Storter, led the membership in the response of support for the new members and the Glades County Woman’s Club. Mrs. Storter is sending a copy of the club’s constitution to each new member. Initiated were: Sara Teel, Lindsey Swaford, Joyce Wilson, Kelly Brantley and Isabel Morrell. Unable to attend were Chantelle Stafford, Jeri Wilson, and Mary Ann Dotson who have been approved for membership, and will be initiated at a later date. Mrs. Snow presented a calendar at each person’s place, and urged all members and guests to be sure to mark theirs with third Thursdays on them—dates of meetings for Glades County Woman’s Club. A short business meeting followed the fun session. Members discussed that while scholarships are a great goal for the club, there are so many more ways of service that we can be involved in—in all areas of the county. Kim Clement reminded the club of the “High Heel Tournament” that we voted to participate in. Other suggestions were assisting in any way possible in Palmdale, Lakeport and Ortona areas. Bobbi Brown noted that several members have shown an interest on their applications in beginning sewing. She volunteered to teach the basics of sewing to any who want to learn, and will choose a convenient date for the rst lesson. Kandi told the group that Anne Coffey, who could not attend, had volunteered to obtain a speaker on “Finances For Women.” This was well received, and members will be informed of the date for this program. Donna, chairman of the Nominating Committee, asked for volunteers for of ces, and stated that her committee will present a slate to be voted on at the April 11 meeting. Thanks were extended to Kandi for her hospitality, and the new members were welcomed. Also present were the following guests: Vickie Cunningham, Kell Ahern, Janie Gray and Tina He in.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 GRAND OPENING! MARCH 27863-674-1220 220 South Industrial Loop, LaBelle, FL 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 21, 2013 ForgivenessBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH.D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThe Book of Psalms are among the great pieces of wisdom literature shared by humanity. For the people of the Old Testament, they comprised a complete book of prayers and are a way of worship. I recall visiting someone in a locked unit of a hospital; placed there on the testimony of those seeking to control, rather than to give help. The doctors knew it and release soon followed. During my visit, I was asked to read a certain Psalm, “You know, the one about keeping someone and that God is the keeper.” Yes, I knew – Psalm 121 – and I read it. It brought tears to young eyes and the assurance that God indeed is our keeper when all is said and done. The hurt done by the wrong remained long after the injustice was made right. There was a sense of betrayal of trust; a relationship was damaged and would not easily be repaired. Psalm 32 speaks of forgiveness; “Happy are they whose transgressions are forgiven, and whose sin is put away(v.1)” Happiness comes when the Lord imputes no guilt (v.2) and we are freed up to not have to try to cover up with God (ibid). Peace comes when we acknowledge our transgressions; guilty consciences are a heavy weight to carry and it is important for our health’s sake (body-mind-spiritual health) to make peace with ourselves. There is a part of the sixth verse that struck me: “I will confess my transgressions… then you forgave me the guilt of my sin.” People who do angry and vengeful things to others may realize their need to turn to God and ask forgiveness; and do so. The people that are hurt are as human as the transgressor, and may not offer the worldly forgiveness that helps ease the burden of wrongdoing to another. Tragedies I have seen are when I encounter someone who realizes and sincerely says “I did wrong, I’m sorry” but there is no forgiveness coming from the parties who have been hurt. I believe God indeed forgives, and especially those who are serious about asking for it. Unfortunately, those who have been hurt may not be at the place in their lives where they are ready. I am human; I understand that. I think that’s what the Psalmist had in mind when he penned those words “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord, then you forgave me the guilt of my sin (ibid, v.6).” God will take the guilt; the consequences follow from our acts and may remain with us. If I’ve learned anything over time, it is to try to be careful about my acts and their consequences; “act in haste, repent in leisure!” There are always times when God is ready to forgive, when we realize the seriousness of what we’ve done and would like to go back and undo them. That is not always possible; an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Act in haste, repent in leisure. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The Psalmist gets to the root of it all; God will do all that He can do to restore us but may we have the foresight and wisdom not to need to call upon Him when we’ve acted in ways that hurt our relations with Him and one another.

Commissioner Beck stated he was not comfortable with ranking applicants in order of preference but would like to name at least ten to be considered for the next step which would be interviews following background checks. Vice Chairman Storter suggested re-advertising the position with a higher salary range of up to $135,000 to enlarge the pool of candidates. Commissioners Echols stated if the position was to be re-advertised to attract more applicants with a higher salary range, it should also include removing the requirement for a successful applicant to relocate to Glades County within 12 months of being hired, and Commissioner Beck agreed. Commissioner Grif n expressed desire to go forward with the current list of applicants and if after interviews a satisfactory choice was not made, then start over and re-advertise, keeping the original applications for consideration. After extensive discussion of the options for proceeding with hiring a new county manager, board decided to proceed with selection from the current list of candidates for an initial interview, with each commissioner to list up to ten of 15 quali ed applicants. The following listings were made in alphabetical order by applicant's rst name: Commissioner Beck: John Granger, Johnny Limbaugh, Noah Powers, Raymond VanHouten, Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia, Richard Giroux, Stuart McCutcheon, Thomas Corbitt, Timothy Day. Commissioner Grif n: Crystal Drake, Gary Rawlings, Greg Wood, Guy Maxcy, John Granger, Noah Powers, Richard Giroux, Thomas Corbitt. Commissioner Echols: Guy Maxcy, John Granger, Johnny Limbaugh, Noah Powers, Ricardo MendezSaldivia, Thomas Corbitt. Commissioner Stanley: Gary Rawlings, Greg Wood, Guy Maxcy, John Granger, Noah Powers, Phillip Ludos, Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia, Stuart McCutcheon, Thomas Corbitt, Thomas Day. Commissioner Storter: John Granger, Johnny Limbaugh, Noah Powers, Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia, Richard Giroux, Thomas Corbitt. Attorney Pringle tallied the selections listing: 5 listed John Granger; 5 listed Noah Powers; 5 listed Thomas Corbitt; 4 listed Ricardo Mendez-Saldivia; 3 listed Guy Maxcy; 3 listed Johnny Limbaugh; 3 listed Richard Giroux; 2 listed Gary Rawlings; 2 listed Greg Wood; 2 listed Stuart McCutcheon; 2 listed Timothy Day; 1 listed Crystal Drake; 1 listed Phillip Ludos; and, 1 listed Raymond VanHouten. Board moved to short-list the rst seven candidates for consideration with a background check by staff and veri cation of continued interest in the applicant within the parameters initially offered including the salary range up to $100,000 annually and requirement to relocate to Glades County within one year of hiring. Staff was directed to bring back the requested information at the March 25 meeting, with board to decide at that time the date and type of interview, perhaps making the rst by Skype teleconference, and then consider an in-person interview and the remuneration for travel for out of area applicants. 9. EOC Considerations (added by amendment). Upon recommendation by Attorney Pringle, board moved to approve the funding agreement with Florida Division of Emergency Management for $5 million for construction of an Emergency Operations Center, noting some requirements would also have to be included in the construction manager contract. Attorney Pringle updated the board of his efforts in the on-going negotiations with Ajax Building Corporation as rst-ranked selection for Construction Manager to build the EOC. Mr. Pringle stated Ajax president Jay Smith had met with Mr. Hilton and Chairman Echols and had agreed to nal terms of a $200,000 pro t/overhead fee for services to construct the facility to speci cations and plans prepared by architect CRA, with initial services of putting the job out for bids, using local contractor bid list provided by the county, and provided the total construction costs would not exceed $3,800,000 the county would select the subcontractors and authorize Ajax to commence. Chairman Echols stated the rm limit of $200,000 for Ajax Services was agreed to in the aforementioned meeting. Vice Chairman Storter inquired of construction manager reimbursables, change orders, etc., and how would such costs be accounted for and contained. She noted that when architect CRA negotiated their services, they proposed a 6% fee, which was $300,000 plus an outline of possible/probable reimbursables estimated to not exceed $200,000. Mr. Pringle stated reimbursables would be incurred as the $200,000 was only to be the construction manager's pro t and cost of overhead. Commissioner Grif n inquired of what was included in overhead other than insurance. Storter suggested "overhead" should be clearly de ned in the contract and not come back as reimbursable items. Mr. Pringle stated the board could go ahead and contract with Ajax, or could declare impasse but he needed direction to move forward with the project. board moved 4-1 to go ahead and contract with Ajax. Vice Chairman Storter was the dissenting vote. Too many unknown costs for unknown possible reimbursable items was her concern, as such could potentially cause the project to exceed available funding mid-construction. 10. Interim Pay for Interim County Manager Chairman Echols requested the board compensate Larry Hilton for his service as interim county manager at the same rate of pay budgeted for the county manager position, to be paid in a lump-sum payment when his interim duties were complete. Board approved. Vice Chairman Storter commented on improved communications with the County Manager's of ce and her appreciation of Mr. Hilton's services, and suggested he concentrate on keeping operations going without adding new items such as amending personnel policy and/or job descriptions, and outsourcing services, as he is expected to be very busy with the application process beginning for America's Gateway. County attorney Attorney Pringle informed the board that the CIRD grant application was completed and submitted by Dr. Banyan on behalf of the county. Mr. Pringle stated that J.J. Wiggins Trust has led a lawsuit asking the court for declaratory judgment stating that the county's denial of their request for a Comprehensive Plan Amendment was incorrect. Pringle stated Wiggins' attorney Ramunni has indicated he will be amending the petition, and Pringle has not prepared the county's response pending receipt of the amended petition. Commissioner Stanley inquired if the court deems in their favor, would they (Wiggins) come back before the board or just get the court to declare approval of their comp plan amendment; however it goes, the request for zoning change will not be considered until the comp plan amendment is approved, and the zoning request must come back before the board. County manager Larry Hilton informed the board that Road Superintendent Avant Brown had undergone emergency surgery last week and would not return to work for another two weeks. Mr. Hilton stated construction on the Orton a Community Center building could start as early as next week and that Building Inspector Tom Fisher was working up the change orders to get prices from the contractors. Mr. Hilton informed the board that the Washington Park Community Center was complete with Certi cate of Occupancy issued, and he has made arrangements for the facility to be cleaned before use. Commissioner Grif n inquired if residents had requested use of the building. Mr. Hilton replied they had not, and discussion followed about the process for requesting use and that the management of the facility would remain with the county manager until a Management Agreement was executed by a community group. Commissioner Grif n inquired if such agreement would require the homeowners association to bu y insurance and pay utilities. Mr. Pringle stated no agreement had been signed and the county would be the property manager and use of the building would require application to the county manager for use of the building. The board had approved the nal version of the Management Agreement at the October 9, 2012 meeting, but it has not yet been executed by any community homeowners group. Following discussion of pursuing agreements for management of all Glades County facilities no w informally operated and managed by others, Chairman Echols asked that the topic Property Management Agreements be on the next meeting agenda. Commissioners items and comments Vice Chairman Storter announced that Orton a Community Association would be hosting a Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser Saturday, March 16, at 5 p.m. to support the children's program which will be held this summer in the new center. Storter stated she has been conversing with DEP staff Bob Beck and Scott Woolam about the options for acquiring the Cypress Knee Museum and has learned that because the site was purchased by conservation funds, the disposal is subject to different review. She said the option of leasing the property with a management plan that would delay any required action has been discussed along with the need to restrict access to the property. Storter said the roadway behind (south of) the museum is in a separate parcel and could only be blocked or barricaded by DEP. She said she is expecting written summary from DEP of the possible conditional options. She also said that like the letter from DEP in item 2 above, DEP had offered the property as surplus to Glades County in August of 2011 and County Manager Taylor had failed to inform the board. Commissioner Stanley stated Buckhead Ridge is still hoping to get a cell phone tower and the petition drive is headed by Maureen Bradley. Chairman Echols reported the 9-County Coalition had well received his report on Glades County issues with Water Management including: 1) the fact that WMD had pledged $5 million to Glades County and has only remitted $3 million which was used on the Pearce Canal, Harney Pond Canal, and the Moore Haven Canal which is now close to the nal permitting stage; 2) the road frontage along SR80 in the Bom a parcel purchased by WMD in late 2007 was to be retained for economic development that has not been pursued and said property, according to Echols, was to have been donated to Glades County; 3) PILoT paid by SFWMD on its property in Glades Count y based on taxes assessed on green-belt exempt property comes to $160,000 but if was assessed on the Property Appraiser's Just Value, the Payment In Lieu of Taxes would be $1.3 million. Chairman Echols stated he met and conferred with Daniel O'Keefe, the Governing board member assigned to represent Glades County and O'Keefe agreed to address the governing board about Glades' issues. Commissioner Beck stated he had expressed the same concerns to Rep. Pigman and following the legislative session will take Rep. Pigman to show him the WMD properties in Glades County.

MOORE HAVEN—Kids in Glades County w ant you to know that tobacco kills no matter how big tobacco sugarcoats it. Glades County Tobacco Prevention Partnership and SWAT (Students Working A gainst Tobacco) are speaking up and taking action against avored tobacco for Kick Butts Day, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids national day of activism that empowers y outh to ght back against Big Tobacco. In observance of “Kick Butts” day, March 20, SWAT members at Moore Haven JuniorSenior High School raised awareness about the dangers of candy avored tobacco products. SWAT members believe that the colorful, fun packaging and “sugarcoated” brands w ere intentionally designed to manipulate y outh and mask the serious risks associated w ith the products. On “Kick Butts” day, SWAT members at Moore Haven Junior/Senior High School spent the day educating their peers on the dangers of candy avored tobacco products utilizing every form of communication imaginable. SWAT members provided educational tidbits on the dangers of candyavored tobacco both orally and through the dissemination of factual literature. They have will also provide visuals that will be displayed throughout the school. “You Can’t Sugarcoat the Truth,” stated Monica Leavy, an energetic SWAT member. “Regardless of how appealing it may be packaged, candyavored tobacco is dangerous. It is no different than cigarettes, it too can lead to life-threatening diseases,” stated Miss Leavy.Sweet Deception Nationally, the issue of avored tobacco products has not gone unnoticed. Fruitand candyavored cigarettes were banned under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act in 2009. However, menthol cigarettes, avored cigars, cigarillos and smokeless products were not included. With cigarette smoking rates on the decline in the United States, the tobacco industry helps ensure its livelihood by marketing products like avored tobacco to attract a new generation of tobacco users. Many children and teens mistakenly believe avored tobacco products are less harmful than their nonavored counterparts. Once youth start using one tobacco product, they are more likely to experiment with others. The tobacco industry also loses customers because 1,200 people in the U.S. die from smoking every day. Yet every day, 3,800 young people under 18 years of age smoke their rst cigarette. In fact, nearly nine out of 10 smokers started by age 18. The younger youth are when they start using tobacco, the more likely they’ll be addicted. Nicotine addiction prolongs tobacco use and can lead to severe health consequences. “Youth have always been a target for the tobacco industry,” said State Surgeon General Dr. John Armstrong. “Numerous internal tobacco industry documents reveal that the tobacco companies perceive youth as an important target. In light of big tobacco tactics, we are redoubling tobacco free collaboration across Florida.”Protecting youthCities and counties across Florida have taken on avored tobacco. On the 10th day of May, 2011, Glades County passed a resolution urging tobacco retailers to restrict the sale and marketing of avored tobacco products.
