We greatly value your business and look forward to being here for many more years to serve you! Family Eye Care100 N. Main Street LaBelle, FL 33935 863-675-0761 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 2, 2013 B Y MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonBlack-and-white Warblers are a migratory species that breed from April to June in the northern and eastern United States, Newfoundland and Canada. These birds do not normally breed in Florida. They have an extensive winter range that extends from Florida to Venezuela and Colombia. This species is one of the earliest warblers to arrive and leave their wintering grounds. This small black and white striped warbler is easy to identify. The male has strongly contrasting black-and-white stripes on its head and under parts. It has black wings with two white wingbars, a white eye stripe, and white eyering. The legs, lores, ear patch, and throat are black. The underparts have bold black streaks. The adult female is striped on the crown and under parts with a moderate contrast between black and white. Its cheeks, chin and throat are dull white or gray. The under parts are mostly white, with gray streaks. Juveniles have plumage similar to the adult female. Black-and-white warblers have an unusually long hind toe and claw on each foot, which allows them to move up and down securely in any direction on tree bark. Its song is a series of very high, two–syllable phrases, resembling the sound of a squeaky wheel, “wee-see-wee-see-wee-see”. Their call is a sharp “stick” and their ight call a high hissing “fsss”. During the winter, they are found in a variety of habitats, but they breed in mature and mixed forests. The old name for this species was the “Black-andwhite Creeper,” because they creep along larger branches in search of insects which they pick out of crevices or under the bark with their long thin bill. They also glean from leaves. Their diet consists of caterpillars, adult insects and spiders. For a warbler, they are unusually aggressive and will sometimes attack other bird species. Black-and-white Warblers build their nests on the ground at the base of a tree or stump. This nest is an open cup of dry leaves, grass, bark, and pine needles. It is lined with ne grasses, horsehair, down, or moss. The female lays four to six white eggs, which are speckled with brown and light purple. She incubates the eggs until they hatch in 10 to 12 days. Both adults feed the young. The young birds leave the nest in eight to 12 days. They are unable to y, but use their wings to scurry across the ground. Inland Birding Fun: Black-and-White Warbler (BAWW) PHOTO/ KENNETH COLEBlack and White Warbler

Family And Roots; Personally, Nationally, SpirituallyBY REVEREND SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church, ClewistonThe countryside was dotted with old farmhouses in the region where I began my rst ministry. Often in the corners of the grounds, you could see a single-wide or double-wide mobile home, equipped with a swing-set, a wading pool, or a slide in the nearby yard. Other buildings also dotted the property: sheds, a barn, a shop. Directions were usually given in terms of local landmarks: turn left when you see the mailbox with the owers painted on it, where the asphalt road becomes gravel and you can see the yellow house in the distance. People had practical solutions to their lives: x it if it's broken, save discarded things because they may be useful in the future, buy a big pump for the well, not just the smallest one to do the job. On my rst trip to Europe, I looked up my family name in the local phone book and called around. Most people were polite but not interested in meeting me. One young man spoke of hearing from his grandfather about an uncle, who went to the U.S. The young man was going to visit his grandfather that weekend and asked if I would like to go? Of course! A few days later, I wound up in the countryside, where a box of old letters tied with string were taken from a dusty closet. No, this was not the grandfather of my family, but we must be related somehow. It was from this farmhouse in the countrysidewith knob-and-tube electrical wiring, where cooking was done on a woodstove, where the screen door was falling off its hinges, where chickens clucked and crowded in the yard, where unquestioned hospitality was shown toward me, a strangerit is at this farmhouse, where I began to feel, "I am a part of this," where I understood better, the farmhouses and extended families back home. There stood the silent powerful witness: This is who you are, this is what you came out of, these are your roots, these are the things at the heart of your life. It is no wonder the Bible is full of genealogies; they are the witnesses to, "This is who we are, this is from where we have come." Each name, each generation, tells a story and contributes to the foundation of the whole family that has built the faith on which we stand. Matthew's gospel opens with an account of the lineage of Jesus: the patriarchs, the Old Testament names, the characters for better and for worse, that have all contributed to saying, "Jesus is the one who was to come." Mark, beginning with John the Baptist, prepared the way with prophesies and the proclamation that He is the one to ful ll it all. Luke began with what is foretold and how it all comes to pass as God has intended from the beginning in Zechariah's song. John's gospel began with the very origins of creation and said it was destined that the Word would become esh and John would be the last to tell of His coming. Our Biblical and spiritual heritage tells us collectively "This is who we are as God's people" and getting to know the family is nding ourselves at the same time. The roots of our faith are the roots of our own identities and who God intends for us to be. Recently, the tragedy at the Boston Marathon brought out a resurgence of "We are a strong people, we will recover, we will not be defeated, this is who we are!" These prideful and patriotic emotions are truly heartwarming to see. It is from the forging of one people, through generations of lives together, through our national genealogies and common visions, and our sharing and remembering, that give us unshakeable roots and endless hope. I pray that we may be faithful in our generation and give these same qualities to those who will follow us. "We are the people of His pasture and the Sheep of His hand, Oh that today you would hearken to His voice (Psalm 95).

Glades Electric Cooperative is proud to announce Melody Bates from Lake Placid High School, and Thomas Bar eld, Jr. from Moore Haven High School are this year's representatives for the Washington Youth Tour. The trip is available to high school juniors who are served by Glades Electric. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, is a week-long tour of Washington D.C. where students from all over the country are brought together to visit national monuments, meet with legislators, and learn the history of rural electri cation. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C. every June since the late 1950s. Over 40,000 students from rural areas and small towns across America have participated in this unique program. You might ask, "Why do electric cooperatives bring high school students to Washington?" The NRECA believes it is important for students to learn about the political process so they can better interact with their government. Students should walk away from the Youth Tour as better leaders and have a sense that they can make a difference in their communities. The Youth Tour students have the opportunity to explore the beauty and history of our nation's capitol, stand upon some of the greatest monuments, and have sit-down conversations with Florida legislators. On National Youth Day, speakers provide insight into the important roles electric cooperatives play in their communities. "We couldn't be prouder of these two outstanding high school juniors. We kno w they will be excellent ambassadors for rural Florida!" says Paul McGehee, Director o f Business Development for Glades Electric. "This is an excellent opportunity for our area's young people to get a rst-hand vie w of our government, a sense of the important role electric cooperatives have had in the shaping of our nation, and a wonderful chance to meet new friends from all over the United States." 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 2, 2013 Glades Electric chooses students for Washington Youth Tour Thomas Bar eld, Jr. Special to the Glades County DemocratSchool Library WeekWest Glades School students in Mrs. Huysman's kindergarten through fourth grade participated in School Library Week by decorating grocery bags with information and illustrations about their favorite books.

This compares with the national average, which has fallen 1.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.49/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 36.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 21.1 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 13.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 32.2 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. "The party at the pump with the seasonally lower prices may be temporarily over," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "We've seen situations unfold that have caused a reversal in the downward trend, and those situations are multiplying across portions of the U.S. and Canada. Along the West Coast, supply has grown tight and will lead to likely increases, and in the Great Lakes prices may spike 10-20c/gallon in the next two days in over a half dozen states as a result of a similar situation. Re neries are nishing what was an extensive maintenance season and with plant restarts commencing, problems may develop, putting pressure on prices," DeHaan said.
