2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 11, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonPine warblers are a common wood warbler found in many eastern pine forests, but are rarely seen away from their pine habitat. They breed in southern Canada, the eastern half of the United States, and the Bahamas. These birds are found year-round in most of Florida with their numbers increasing in the winter due to the in ux of migratory birds from their northern range. Pine Warblers are yellowish birds with olive backs, whitish bellies, and pale sides of their neck. They have two prominent white wingbars on their gray wings. Adult males are brighter than the female and immature birds, which can appear to be gray-brown. These birds don't have the strong patterns of other warblers. Their face can have a pale eye ring connected to a pale strip in front of the eye. The oldest Pine Warbler in captivity lived to be six years old. The Pine Warbler is one of few North American songbirds that sing year round. Males sing a fast trill of 10 to 30 simple whistled notes usually on one pitch. Males and females will make sharp, short call notes. A rattle call is made when they are defending their territory. They make sounds when they snap their stout bills at each other or other species. These birds are hard to spot as they move along high branches in pine or mixed pine forests where they forage for insects, spiders, berries, and seeds. They will also feed on the ground, catch insects in the air, or sometimes visit bird feeders. In Florida, Pine Warblers begin breeding in late March and raise two or more broods per season. The male often escorts the female as she gathers nesting materials, and he will occasionally help build the nest. The cup shaped nest is nearly always built in a pine tree among the needles and cones near the end of a high branch. The female usually lays about four whitish eggs with brown speckles which are incubated for 10 to 13 days. The young edge in about 10 days. Volunteers are needed to help document breeding birds for the Breeding Bird Atlas II surveys in Hendry and Glades County. Join birders during the summer trips to STA5 and BBA II survey locations. Go to the Hendry-Glades Audubon website for information about the Stormwater Treatment Area 5 driving trips. There are openings for the April 27 trip and the 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, with an emergency cell number, the date you want attend the STA5 trip, and the number of participants in your party. Meet at the east end of Deer Fence Canal Road at 8:30 a.m. For a schedule of STA5 trips through Jan. 4, 2014 visit the HGAS website at www.hendrygladesaudubon.org.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.0 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.58 per gallon. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 38.7 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 19.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 9.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 32.8 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “Americans are spending $108 million less on gasoline every day than they were a year ago,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Prices in nearly all Metropolitian Statistical Areas are lower today than a year ago. In all, 300 Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs) saw cheaper rst quarter prices for gasoline than in 2012, with two MSAs showing no statistically signi cant change. More expensive markets in 2013 included locations in Vermont, New York, Massachusetts, and Pennsylvania. The most expensive market in the country was the Honolulu area, but the outright price of $4.157 gallons this year was just three cents per gallon above the 2012 number,” DeHaan said.

When questions arise about mosquito control, University of Florida entomologist Roxanne Connelly is one of the state’s most sought-after experts. Now, that expertise has earned her the presidency of a national organization. Connelly, an associate professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, was inducted Feb. 27 as president of the American Mosquito Control Association at the association’s annual meeting in Atlantic City, N.J. She’ll serve a one-year term. “I’m very pleased about it,” Connelly said in a March interview. “Holding this position is really an honor for me because I was elected to it.” The election happened at the 2010 AMCA annual meeting, where members voted Connelly to a four-year leadership stint. In 2011 she began by serving a one-year term as vice president, then another year as president-elect, and now president. In 2014 she’ll become immediate past president. Each position involves different responsibilities, she said. As president, Connelly will appear at state mosquito control association meetings, give presentations, recruit members and preside over board meetings. Occasionally, she may speak to the media on mosquito-related topics such as West Nile virus. One more goal: As president, Connelly wants to encourage talented young scientists from every background to consider mosquito control as a career option. “Right before I took over as president I formed a task force on recruiting the next generation of mosquito control professionals,” she said. “My job is to come up with ideas for high school students, to introduce them to the profession.” The task force will develop a set of guidelines on recruiting new members, Connelly said. In 79 years of AMCA history, Connelly is the association’s third female president. “I hope that my accomplishment inspires young women who are interested in this vital public-health topic,” she said. She was a member of the AMCA board of directors from 2007-2010, representing the South Atlantic region – Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Connelly was also president of the Florida Mosquito Control Association in 2011. A native of Birmingham, Ala., Connelly earned three degrees from Louisiana State University – a bachelor of science in environmental science in 1992, master of science in entomology in 1995 and a doctorate in entomology with a minor in epidemiology and community health in 1998. Hired by UF in 1999, she has worked exclusively at the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory in Vero Beach. There, she provides Extension education to mosquito control personnel and public-health of cials. She also researches mosquito control topics, teaches graduate-level courses in medical entomology and mentors graduate students. Created in 1935, the AMCA is an international, non-pro t organization promoting research efforts to help manage mosquito populations that vector diseases or cause annoyance. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Proud to be Part of ItBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchI don’t remember much from Kindergarten, but I do remember that we were graded on whether we worked and played well with others. How are you doing on that today? Do you work and play well with others? A bright-eyed three-year-old girl listened intently as her pastor shared in a children’s sermon that God wanted them all to get along and love each other. When the pastor stated, “God wants us all to be one,” the little girl replied, “But I don’t want to be one. I want to be four!” I don’t know what you want to be, but God wants us to be one. This is not to say that we can’t disagree. Disagreements are a part of being a family. But how we disagree is very important. When we demand our way over others; when we think our way is superior; when we try to be on the top, we hurt the community. When we are critical, rude, asserting our right; when we are aggressive; when we feel we can say whatever we want, we hurt the community. The Scriptures urge us “to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.” We are called to walk and work together. But this is harder for us than we might understand, because putting up with people who are obnoxious or different than us isn’t easy. We grow tired of accommodating, we become weary of compromise. Why are we always the ones who have to change? Why can’t they give something up once in a while? When “we” and “they,” “us” and “them” makes its way into our vocabulary, a storm is brewing on the horizon. Our unity is in jeopardy. God not only cares about how we conduct ourselves individually, but also really cares on how we do it in the context of the community. We are called on to lift each other up. When we don’t help each other as we are called to do, we end up being a hindrance. We hinder another’s journey when we put someone down or tell them off or ignore them. It hurts the community when we do that. God cares about our relationships with each other. He cares about the application of the oneness He has given us. The Christian life is more than just believing, it also includes belonging, and that translates into the community in which we live. That’s why I’m so excited about what we did in our community these past few weeks. At the community Easter Sunrise service hosted at Greater Friendship Baptist Church, we came together as one body. We came together for a common cause in our Relay for Life, walking in memory and honor of loved ones and special friends, and to help future friends and family members. And then we came together again to help clean up Clewiston. Brothers and sisters. Young and old. Anglos and Hispanics. Blacks and whites. People of all colors and races, all joined together in one family. We may come from different experiences, lifestyles, and cultures, but we are family. We are community, neighbors sharing and taking care of neighbors. We still have our problems. I was not happy to see trash dumped in areas I had picked up earlier. I don’t always agree with what our leaders have said or done. They may not agree with everything I’ve said and done. We have been here long enough to know the strengths and weaknesses of each other. You know that I’m not perfect, but neither are you. People are like pianos, they need regular tuning. This means that we practice the art of relationship. We exercise patience with each other. We take advantages of each other’s strengths. We are patient with each other’s weaknesses. And we work together for the common good and unity of our community. My City: Clewiston, Florida. I’m part of it. I’m proud of it. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 11, 2013 Religion Column Pastor John Hicks “God not only cares about how we conduct ourselves individually, but also really cares on how we do it in the context of the community.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 11, 2013 By Eric KoppGlades County Democrat GLADES COUNTY—Apparently angry because her paramour had another woman’s photo on his cell phone, a Moore Haven w oman allegedly ran over the man with a car and dragged him through a barbed wire fence. The incident occurred Tuesday, A pril 2, on S.R. 78 W. in the Ortona area during an argument between Y oreel Alexandria Rena Wilson and her boyfriend, stated an arrest report by Deputy Donald Crosswell of the Glades County Sheriff’s Ofce (GCSO). Wilson, 18, S.R. 78 W., was charged with the felonies of aggrav ated battery and criminal mischief. She was also charged with a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief. She was booked into the Glades County Jail where her bond has been set at $25,500. According to the deputy’s arrest report W ilson and her boyfriend were westbound on S.R. 78 when they began to argue around 8:22 p.m. about the photo. At some point, stated the report, the man pulled the 2012 black Chrysler off the road, got out and started walking toward Moore Haven. Deputy Crosswell stated as the man w alked he looked back and saw Wilson driving the car toward him. Wilson reportedly drove the car off the roadway and struck the victim. He was then dragged through a ve-strand barbed wire fence, added the report. The victim’s right shin was broken, and he suffered numerous cuts to his right arm and back from the barbed wire. Wilson reportedly told the deputy she turned the vehicle around to try and get her boyfriend back in the car. However, as she approached the man, she claimed a dog ran into her path and she swerved to miss it. She then accidentally hit the victim and “... ran through the fence,” stated the deputy’s report. She allegedly told the deputy the dog tried to attack the injured man so she placed him in the back seat of the car. “I did not see a dog in the area at this time,” the deputy stated. Deputy Crosswell went on to point out that while he was searching the scene for evidence he noticed the tire tracks led directly from the road to the fence, “... and did not appear to have swerved.” The deputy added that he traced the tracks and it appeared to him that the vehicle had left the roadway at a 45-degree angle. “The fence was constructed of ve strands of barbed wire and eld fence, indicating that it took considerable force or speed for the vehicle to drive through the fence,” stated Deputy Crosswell in his report. The victim was taken to Lee County Medical Center in Fort Myers. Deputy Crosswell estimated the damage to the car to be about $3,000. The owner of the pasture apparently told the deputy it could cost about $500 to x the fence. The deputy’s report did not indicate the identi cation of the woman whose photo was on the victim’s cell phone. W oman acussed of driving over man Yoreel A. R.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsThe month of April is recognized as Autism Awareness Month. It gives special opportunity for communities to raise awareness and educate the public about autism. There is no known single cause for autism, but many researchers believe that it is caused by abnormalities in brain structure or function. No “one” gene has been identi ed as causing autism. However, researchers have been searching for irregular segments of genetic codes that children with autism may have inherited. Some of the characteristic behaviors of autism may or may not be clearly noticeable during the child’s rst 18 to 24 months, but they usually become more obvious during early childhood from ages 24 months to six years. As part of a “well-baby” or “well-child” visit, the child’s health care provider should complete a “developmental screening,” where they may ask speci c questions about the child’s progress. According to the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) these ve behaviors may give signals that further evaluation is warranted: If the child does not babble or coo by 12 months of age If the child does not make gestures by 12 months of age (point, wave, grasp) If the child does not say single words by 16 months of age If the child does not say two-word phrases on their own by 24 months of age If the child has any loss of any language or social skill at any age Having any of these ve “red ags” does not mean that your child has autism, but because the characteristics of the disorder can vary so much, a child showing these behaviors should have further evaluations completed by a healthcare specialist. This may include referrals to a neurologist, psychologist, developmental pediatrician, speech or language therapist, or other professionals knowledgeable about autism. Always talk with your healthcare provider if you are concerned about your child’s development. Finding out that your child has autism can be overwhelming. Parents always have a lot of questions about what they can do to help their child. With the appropriate services, support, training, and information, children with autism can grow, learn and ourish; even if they have a different developmental rate than others. There is no known cure for autism. However, there are treatment and educational approaches that may reduce some of the challenges associated with the condition. There are ways to help lessen disruptive behaviors and education that can teach “self-help” skills which allow for greater independence. Take time to get educated about autism. Additional information about autism is available at www.cdc.gov/actearly or www.cdc.gov/autism. April is Autism Awareness Month The Florida Department of Health recognizes World Health Day on April 7. As part of the recognition, please see the information below about blood pressure.High Blood Pressure Think about the last time you had your blood pressure checked. What were the numbers? Blood pressure is written as two numbers. The rst number (systolic) represents the pressure in your blood vessels when your heart beats. The second number (diastolic) represents the pressure in your vessels when your heart rests between beats.Blood Pressure LevelsNormal -Systolic: less than 120 -Diastolic: less than 80 At Risk (Prehypertension) -Systolic: 120-139 -Diastolic: 80-89 High -Systolic: 140 or Higher -Diastolic: 90 or Higher Hypertensive Crisis -Systolic: Grater than 180 -Diastolic: Greater than 110PreventionAdopt a healthy lifestyle maintain a healthy weight, be physically active, follow a healthy eating plan that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, and low-fat dairy foods, and choose and prepare foods with less salt. If you drink alcoholic beverages, drink in moderation. If you smoke, quit as soon as possible. Call 1-877-U-CAN-NOW or visit www.quitnow. net/ orida. Prevent High Blood Pressure Every three minutes nationwide, an underground utility line is hit because of failure to call 8-1-1 before digging. The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) reminds Floridians to call 8-1-1 before putting a shovel in the ground this spring! “We’re spreading the word about safe digging for April’s National Safe Digging Month,” said PSC Chairman Ronald A. Bris. “We hope people will recognize the importance of 8-1-1, just as they do 9-1-1, since the leading cause of natural gas delivery system accidents is hitting underground facilities. For information on safe digging, I encourage consumers to view a helpful 8-1-1 video tip on the PSC’s website.” Digging for any type of landscape and home improvement projects without knowing the approximate location of underground utilities can cause serious injuries, service disruptions, and repair costs if a line is damaged. Homeowners often make risky assumptions about whether or not to get their utility lines marked, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, which supports the 8-1-1 campaign. The Federal Communications Commission has designated 8-1-1 as the national “Call Before You Dig” number. By calling 8-1-1, local Sunshine State One Call Center personnel notify affected utility companies to dispatch crews to mark your underground utility lines. Utility markings show those who dig the approximate location of underground lines and help prevent undesired consequences. This is a free service, so there is no reason to take a chance or make an assumption about the location of critical underground utility facilities. Both professional contractors and homeowners should call 8-1-1 and follow the safe digging guidelines, not only during National Safe Digging Month, but every month. And, after your underground facilities are marked, dig with care!

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 20 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 11, 2013 Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Bobbi PoolePreparing for the World SeriesPreparing for the World Series to be held at Big Cypress Indian Reservation, on April 13, is young 6-year-old Quade Urbina under the guidance of his father Juan Urbina. Quade is a Kindergarten student at the Charter school, playing his second year at T-Ball, as an all-around player. His best feature is hitting the ball to achieve a single-base hit. By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County DemocratSeveral Palmdale residents urged support for a renovation project proposed by the owner of the former Palmdale Store on U.S. 27. They noted it is 16 miles to the nearest store and that creates a hardship for the elderly and low-income families. They note the store would create a few jobs. Others claimed it would be an economic bene t as passing motorists going through Glades County might stop and spend some money. Owner Larry Taylor said he has run into several roadblocks at the county government as he tried to make needed improvements to the property and asked commissioners for their assistance. Commissioner Paul Beck said the commercial use is non-conforming. He suggested Mr. Taylor apply for a variance and rezoning and that he supported the store concept. "As far as I'm concerned, U.S. 27 should be zoned either commercial or agriculture. Personally I wouldn't want to live right on U.S. 27," he explained. County Manager Larry Hilton said current county code prohibits the store from being reopened because it is non-conforming and has ceased to operate for over six months. He said he would allow the store to reopen but the code does not allow the building to be enlarged. "All he has to do is apply for the rezoning, apply for a setback change, he's been explained all that," he added. "The county could v ote to allow non-conforming uses to expand, it is not illegal, but it might be unheard of." Mr. Hilton explained he has met with Mr. Taylor many times and explained this. County Attorney Richard Pringle said commissioners could not make a decision or take action because there was no application before them. The store could reopen today as a legal use but any change to the facility would trigger new requirements and regulations. Commissioner Tim Stanley said he supported making an exception and allowing the store to reopen because citizens support it. Residents said the store would also assist the Fisheating Creek Campground because many campers have to drive to Lake Placid, LaBelle or Moore Haven to get supplies.Mowing bid criticizedResidents also showed concern about a loss of jobs should the county bid to a private landscape rm a county courthouse mowing contract. Commissioners complained about a recent bid advertisement for mowing services. Commissioner Dennis Grif n said they supported a bid for courthouse mowing and landscaping. He did not support a county-wide bid for mowing services. Commissioner Stanley disagreed with a bid for county-wide mowing services. He said they should get quotes from businesses to determine what it might cost to have a county-wide mowing program. It's likely the issue could return at budget time in July. Commissioner Beck said it is always a good idea to get cost comparisons between a private rm and county employees so they can make an educated decision. He admitted he did not support dipping into reserves to support county government functions. Commissioner Donna Storter-Long said the County Attorney did not review this bid request and the staff did not follow the direction commissioners gave them on Feb. 25. "I don't oppose getting prices, but this ad was misleading." She mentioned the ad listed 29 different sites to mow and stated the county intended to go this route on May 1. Attorney Pringle said the County Manager has the authority to seek information. He said if the form the manager used to get the information was not supported by the majority of the board, they can give him new direction. Commissioners voted (5-0) to withdraw the bid for mowing services and look for alternative ways to get cost estimates for mowing. They will also check with state agencies to determine what they paid for mowing services. Mr. Stanley said the bid itself gave the public the impression that the low bidder would get the contract. The commission approved a ve-year extension of an Enterprise Zone utility tax ordinance that provides new and expanding businesses the opportunity to apply for a rebate of sales tax paid to the state of Florida for certain purposes as an inducement to businesses to expand or locate to Glades County. The county also allows businesses that qualify to apply for exemption from state sales tax paid on electrical energy for up to ve years. A no-wake zone was requested on the Pearce Canal near the locks in Buckhead Ridge. Buoys would cost less than $1,000 to purchase and install. An ordinance will be drafted for the commission's consideration. Residents want Palmdale Store to reopen

2 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions April 2013 S o u t h C e n t r a l F l o r i d a C a r C l u b w e l c o m e s e n t h u s i a s t s South Central Florida Car Club welcomes enthusiastsThe South Central Florida Car Club (SCFCC) was started in 2006. The idea of the club was a collaboration of Tom Corbitt and his son and a few others from the Hendry and Glades County area. The club has grown in leaps and bounds over the past few years. The group now has over 45 members, these members own over 200 classic and vintage cars and trucks. Members now come from LaBelle, Moore Haven, Lehigh, Alva, Ft. Myers, Clewiston and Cape Coral along with many part time residents. This is a very diverse group of car enthusiasts. Members certainly run the gamut. Owners h ave rat rods, vintage, muscle car, foreign, classic, concept cars, trucks and new, modern, showroom fresh cars. Both men and women enjoy being involved in this club. There are no age limits for the group— all you h ave to do is like cars. A big welcome is extended to all auto enthusiasts. Why, heck, you don’t even need to own a car—you just h ave to like them! SCFCC meets the third Tuesday of each month from September through June, in Barron Park on State Road 29 N. in LaBelle. The park is tucked in alongside the Caloosahatchee River, near the base of the draw bridge. It is lled with many grand old live oaks. The club hosts what it calls Hot Rides & Hot Dogs in the Park from 5-8 p.m. They grill up some pretty great hot dogs, served with all kinds of xings, along with drinks, chips and usually some kind of sweets. Everyone is welcome to come out and join them under the covered pavilion. Bring your ride, bring a friend and enjoy a night of great food and conversation. One of the biggest things the SCFCC is known for is the Annual Legends of the Road Super Cruise and Show. This event is held annually in conjunction with the world renowned Swamp Cabbage Festival. The car show is held in the old historical district of LaBelle, adjacent to Barron Park, just steps away from the banks of the Caloosahatchee River. This event has grown over the years into a rst class event. Show goers not only are able to attend a great show, but they are within a holler of the “infamous” Armadillo Races held in Barron Park. While there they can partake in consuming the heart of the state tree of Florida, the Sable Palm, also known as Swamp Cabbage. It is served up fried into fritters, boiled and stewed and even made into relish. There are numerous handicraft vendors under the majestic live oaks for guests to visit. The bandstand has continuous live acts during the day, ranging from old fashion cloggers to top-name music stars playing for your entertainment. The event is held the last full weekend of February annually. The Legends of the Road Super Cruise and Show is a major fundraiser for the club. Annually, the club selects a di erent civic group to support by their fundraising e orts. In the past they h ave donated to the Humane Society and the Hendry-Glades Woman’s Crisis Center. The past few years their main focus has been the Veterans Memorial Park in LaBelle. SCFCC was one of the rst groups to step up and donate some of the seed money to get this park started and has proudly donated funds to help with the maintenance of the park over the past few years. For 2013, they h ave chosen once again the Veterans Memorial Park, as well as LaBelle Little League, Olivia Luckey and her Church Mission Project as benefactors of the 7th Annual Legends of the Road Show and Super Cruise. The SCFCC also has two other pet projects. In November and December of each year, members collect canned goods and toys for the Salvation Army to help the needy. At the November Cruise-In they collected over 100 food items to donate. At the Christmas holiday Cruise-In they collected numerous toys and food items for area families. There is such a need, they are glad to be able to help out even more families this past year, than they h ave in the past. The South Central Florida Car Club welcomes you to come out, pull up a bench, sit a spell, and join in the conversation. They will feed ya well, at one of their monthly Cruise-Ins. Families are always welcome—lots of room for the kids to play in the park safely. Bike riders are welcome too—they love to see everyone swing in and join them.
