Page 9 Special to the Glade County Democrat A 10-year plan for the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Management Area (WMA) will be presented Aug. 1, a Thursday, at a public hearing in Glades County. People are invited to attend the 7 p.m. public hearing at the Glades County Commission Chambers, 500 Avenue J in Moore Haven. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff will present the draft land management plan for FWCmanaged portions of the Fisheating Creek WMA, and people are encouraged to comment and ask questions. Fisheating Creek WMA is a place full of history and wildlife, as well as outdoor recreation opportunities. Its Creek Indian name, Thlothlopopka-hatchee, means “the creek where sh are eaten.” The rst known settlements occurred between 1,000 and 500 B.C., when early inhabitants known as the Belle Glade people built mounds and subsisted by netting sh and harvesting turtles, snakes and alligators. Today, Fisheating Creek WMA stretches for 40 miles in Glades County along the course of the only freeowing tributar y to Lake Okeechobee. Framed by bald cypress swamps and hardwood hammocks, the tea-colored blackwater creek shows off wild Florida and is critical habitat for native species such as panther, black bear Help plan the future of Fisheating Creek WMA A different kind of graduation in Glades CountySpecial to the Glades County Democrat When Glades County high school seniors walked across the stage to receive their diplomas on June 7, they took a big step toward securing a brighter future for themselves and their families. Recently, another group of students in Glades County took that same walk—only this time, they were inmates at a correctional facility. Corrections Corporation of America’s (CCA) Moore Haven Correctional Facility held a graduation ceremony on June 19. Seven GED and 82 vocational certi cates, for trades that included commercial driver’s license (CDL), carpentry, barbering, PC support and nursing management, were awarded to inmates in front of staff and visiting family. The ceremony featured special guest speaker Wenfred D. Dorsey, MA, registered minister and a job coach at the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Department for Lord’s Place in West Palm Beach Florida and two inmate graduates who spoke about the bene ts of furthering their education. “Graduations are important in prison: important to inmates to be recognized for an accomplishment, important to their families to acknowledge support, and important to us as staff to underCCA Moore Haven inmates earn diplomas Special to the Glades County DemocratPrincipal Dr. Rudolph Boone poses with inmates Corey Douglas and Fernando Senat.

Boy, of LaBelle, passed away peacefully July 16, 2013 in Lehigh Acres. He was born Mar. 25, 1917 in Johnson City, Tenn., to David C. and Kathleen Boy and was the second of three brothers. He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering. During his time at Georgia Tech, John was on the Honor Roll, a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma, Bulldog Club, Pi Delta Epsilon, A.S.M.E, Skull and Key, Interfraternity Council, Technique Editor in Chief, Yellowjacket, Blue Print, Student Council, ANAK Vice-President and Athletic Association Student Member. Following graduation, he worked for Proctor and Gamble at the Buckeye Oil Company until WWII broke out and at that time enlisted in the U. S. Navy. He served our nation throughout the entire war and became the Captain of three different ships -a subchaser, USS C350, a patrolcraft, USS PC613 and destroyer escort, the USS Holton, DE-703. John and his crew from the USS Holton held annual reunions that were lled with great passion and memories of their younger years. While in the Navy on assignment in Miami, John met and married the love of his life, Nancy Adams, who predeceased him. Shortly after the war, John went to work for United States Sugar Corporation in 1946. Through his engineering ingenuity, he improved the ef ciency and productivity of sugar cane harvesting by converting/redesigning track mounted tractors to rubber tires which was combined with his successful redesign of sugar cane loading machines. Those redesigns allowed the Florida sugar cane industry to begin a process of mass production in the elds and factories which ultimately led to the size and ef ciency of today’s industry. John later became Executive Vice President of the Corporation in 1961 which led to his promotion to President/CEO in 1970, a position he held until his retirement in 1987. He became ViceChairman of the Board of Directors at that time. Under his leadership, the Corporation not only prospered by tripling its production, but he led the way in charitable giving to the surrounding communities of swimming pools, youth centers, an auditorium, day care facilities, housing projects and multiple scholarship programs. Two of his proudest achievements during his tenure as President were the creation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan whereby the employees would own 47% of the Corporation and the commencement of the diversi cation of the Corporation into the growing/processing of citrus. John was the beloved and respected leader of the sugar industry as noted by the numerous accolades that he accumulated and/or achieved during his career which included “Sugar Man of the Year”, Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame, Honorary Doctor of Humanities-Florida Atlantic University, “White Hat” award by Agribusiness Institute, President of the Florida Sugar Cane League, President of the Florida Sugar Marketing and Terminal Association, State Director of Florida Chamber of Commerce, Council of 100, Florida Land Council, Florida Farm Bureau, 1975 Citizen of the Year for Clewiston, Florida and Dedication of the Sugar Festival in 1992. He is survived by daughter, Betsy Terrill (Jim); sons, John Boy, Jr. (Connie) and H. Lane Boy; grandchildren, Jamie Terrill, Christopher Smith, Jennifer Price, Suzanne Boy, Stephanie Crawford, Rachael Boy; and ten great-grandchildren. Visitation was held Thursday, July 18, 2013 from 6-8 p.m. at Akin-Davis Funeral Home in Clewiston, Florida. The Funeral Service was held Friday, July 19, 2013, 11:00 a.m. at Evangel Assembly of God, Clewiston, Florida with Rev. Samuel Thomas Ph.D. of ciating. Interment followed at Ridgelawn Cemetery in Clewiston. In lieu of owers, donations can be made to Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation, 544 West Sugarland Hwy, Clewiston, FL 33440.

About half the nation’s households include a dog or a cat, and they spend $53 billion yearly on pet expenses, ranging from food to vet bills to toys. Some go a bit overboard. A whopping $370 million is spent on pet costumes yearly. But even more shocking is the toll our animals take on our electronics budget. American pets have bitten, chewed, licked and otherwise damaged over eight million electronic devices, amounting to over $3 billion in repair and replacement costs. Considering that one of every three devices damaged by pets is a smartphone, this could mean up to $800 in replacement costs whenever your animal runs amok. The risk of pet-related accidents increases the more pets are treated as family members. According to new research from SquareTrade, if you drive with your pet in your lap, you’re over twice as likely to damage your device. And letting a pet sleep in bed with you triples your chances. Meanwhile, giving your pet too much independence can also increase risk. Two-thirds of pet-related accidents involving devices happened while the pet was unsupervised. Accidental Personalities: Every furry friend comes with its own unique personality, and unique set of dangers. For example, the SquareTrade study found that 21 percent of accidents happened while the owner was using the device. A temperamental personality can also be a red ag -17 percent of pet owners believe their animal friend damaged their device because it was angry with them. And homes with different pet species are more susceptible to mishaps. Those with both a cat and dog are four times more likely to have accidents with electronics compared to homes with one or the other. Fido Protection: Despite the growing popularity of pet insurance, many owners don’t realize this kind of insurance doesn’t cover damage caused by their pets. In fact, three out of four devices damaged were not covered by any kind of warranty. While there’s no sure way to prevent pet-related accidents, consumers can protect themselves by getting a protection plan. For example, some protection plans cover against accidents, like a device getting batted off the kitchen counter, falling in a water bowl or nding its way into the wrong paws. They also cover mechanical and electrical issues, like antennae and Wi-Fi failure, a broken dock connector, or touch-screen failure. Pets all need exercise, training and attention from their owners, but they sometimes nd inconvenient ways to show us. The Hidden Costs of Owning a Pet The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will hold a public meeting Aug. 8 in Gainesville to discuss possible options for minimizing the risk of chronic wasting disease (CWD) coming into Florida. The meeting is at the Paramount Plaza Hotel, 2900 S.W. 13th Street, Ballroom A/B, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and is open to the public. CWD is not known to affect people but is a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. The disease is always fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine. So far, the disease has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and South Korea. The meeting will begin with a presentation by Commission staff on the signi cance of CWD and will include a discussion on possible solutions for minimizing the risk of the disease being brought into the state. For more information, contact Curtis Brown at Curtis.Brown@ MyFWC.com or 850-617-9490. For more information on CWD, go to www.CWD-info.org. Any person requiring special accommodations to participate in this workshop/meeting is asked to advise the agency at least ve days before the workshop/meeting by contacting the ADA coordinator at 850-488-6411.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonGreat Crested Flycatchers breed throughout the Central and Eastern United States, as well as Southern Canada. They winter in humid forests from Mexico to Northern South America and from Central Florida to Cuba. In Florida they ar-rive on their breeding grounds in late March or early April and migrate south between mid-August to the middle of October. This medium-sized songbird is a large sturdy built ycatcher with a bright yellow belly. It has a cinnamon-colored tail and wings, pale wingbars and a large, broadbased, dark bill. Immature birds quickly molt into adult-like plumage. When resting they will tilt their head to one side inquisitively. Great Crested Flycatchers are more often heard than seen. They make the same far-carrying "wee-eep" calls on their breeding and wintering grounds. This species also makes a noisy grating call. These birds prefer living in open areas in woodlands, old orchards and urban areas with large shade trees. They are often seen hovering around in the top of the canopy foraging for insects and other invertebrates, or picking small fruit. They catch ying insects, glean insects off of leaves and will drop down from trees to take their prey on the ground. They prefer to y from place to place on the ground instead of walking. Their nests are found in natural cavities, nest boxes or other structures, such as mail boxes or rain gutters. These nest cavities are usually lled with leaf litter, hair, feathers, small twigs and trash, which are piled to the top of the cavity hole. Many of the nests contain snakeskin or crinkly materials, such as cellophane, plastic wrappers or onion skin. Egg laying in Florida usually takes place in April, May or June. The female will lay three to eight creamy white to pinkishbrown streaked eggs, which are incubated for 13 to 17 days. The young are born helpless, but are covered with some down. Both parents care for the young, defend the nest vigorously from predators and will remove the fecal sacs. The nestlings edge when they are 13 to 17 days old, but remain with their parents in the nesting area for about three weeks. Great Crested Flycatchers are being reported nesting near homes, in parks and wooded areas in inland Florida. Listen for their loud calls or nd them watching quietly from exposed perches.

This compares with the national average that has increased 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.68/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 22.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 12.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 9.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 19.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average has seen the upward trend continuing, with average prices climbing across an abundance of the U.S.,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The price of WTI oil continues to rise to levels not seen in quite some time, and that may continue, at least for the time being, to put more upward pressure on gasoline prices. While the worst may be behind us, I do believe the week ahead will likely feature another rise in the national average,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County Democrat He played high school football under the tutelage of coach Steve Petty with the Moore Haven Terriers. He was a forward on the basketball team and ran track. He did hurdles and triple long jumps. Two of his favorite teachers were Janice Brown and Wayne Reese. Who is he? Julius Bishop, that’s who! At 48 years y oung, this tall, muscular man who grew up in Moore Haven has returned. Although he has been married nearly one-half of his adult life, he isn’t real happy with the term, “middle aged.” The title of “Mr.” isn’t his favorite either so he decided to make some changes in his life that will dispel these typical characterizations. With the help of close friends like his mentors Larry Cohens, a certi ed weightlifting trainer with the Seminole Tribe, and J ames Ball, Edward Smith of Clewiston, a boxing trainer, and boxing coaches Louis and Pappy, he stays motivated. “A few years ago, Larry and I were like the dynamic duo in weight lifting,” said Mr. Bishop. “He’s somewhat older than I am, too.” Mr. Bishop has trained and competed for the past 11 years in Tough Man competitions. He does most of his training in Okeechobee. The matches consist of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) such as kick boxing, regular boxing, and jujitsu also called grappling. Jujitsu is similar to wrestling but without punches, and instead of being sent to the ground, the contestant goes into submissions. At 6 ft. 2 inches tall, and weighing 230 lbs. and with upper arms the size of hams, he is a formidable gure. His training consists of lots of fancy footwork, lifting weights, and learning to punch, or throw a “striker,” also called a good punch. He does a lot of cardio exercises that include running, and he is required to have a physical exam every six months. “I haven’t had a broken nose, but I ended one match with a cracked jawbone,” he said. “You learn to dance around so you don’t get y our face hit. You have to protect yourself.” He looks somewhat sheepish when asked about what type of healthy diet he follows. “Sometimes I eat whatever I want, but lately I am trying to eat a healthier diet.” His adv ice for a successful training program in addition to having great coaches is to mix up the martial arts. “It’s best to learn it all,” he advised. He never gets angry with a competitor. Instead he thoroughly enjoys the competition. “I don’t get mad if I lose. This isn’t easy but if you’re good at it, you make it look easy,” he said. He regrets not staying with the sport throughout his youth. “We were too young to know we could one day go professional or get paid. I think it is a great career for young people,” he said. It helps combat aggression especially if a child has a good coach. It is a great protector for self-defense also. Parents should start getting their children interested around the age of ve,” he advised. He has toyed with the idea of starting a gym in Moore Haven but until he decides exactly where he wants to reside, it is a distant dream. Locally, only Big Cypress has a martial arts program. He smiles most of the time and speaks softly and passionately when he talks about his two children, Julius, Jr. and Jumetrius, his one son who is interested in martial arts. He is quick to give compliments to all who have helped him throughout his life. In 2004, Mr. Bishop’s left arm was badly injured resulting in much nerve damage and an aneurysm. He gives much credit for his complete recovery to his surgeon, Dr. Sandra Collins and her staff in Ft. Myers. “I want them to come to one of my ghts, so they can see what they and I have accomplished,” he said. Another who has become part of his group of admired friends, and a local sponsor is Mary Ann Martin, owner of the popular Roland Martin Marina in Clewiston where Mr. Bishop was employed. “I’ve known him for 10 years. He has muscles as big as his heart. I would not want to feel one of his knock-out punches,” she said. “Her presence in the audience gives me encouragement and makes me feel proud,” he said. Part of his future plan is to turn professional in September. This requires participating in at least ve ghts. To date he has had four wins and two losses. He missed winning the Heavyweight Belt at the Immokalee Casino due to a split decision. In Punt a Gorda this year he won his rst Kick Boxing match but it wasn’t a title match. Currentl y he is training for a Super Heavyweight title. His rst match was in Immokalee against a 293 lb. Super Heavyweight champ. “He just wore me down and then gave me a slam,” he said. “I am determined to win.” These exciting matches can be viewed at the Immokalee Casino approximately ever y two months. You can see Julius Bishop vie for this prestigious title on Saturday, Aug. 3, at 7 p.m. in the Immokalee Casino.

By Scott BassSuperintendent of Schools The New School Year is less than a month away. Hopefully, students have had an enjoyable summer break and are anxious to get back to school in just a few weeks. Please make sure you check with your student’s school so that you can be made aware of any changes that could alter your back-toschool plans. The rst day of school is Aug. 19.New Dress Code for schoolsThe summer break gives staff the opportunity to examine many practices of the prev ious school year, some of these practices help our students to be successful and others have little or no impact on our students. One area that I examined this school year was our district dress code for students and did it directly lead to helping our students improve academically? It was felt that the dress code was actually becoming an obstacle when it came to quality instruction, in that staff was spending too much instructional time in determining if a student was in violation of the dress code. A dress code change was proposed to the school board and was unanimously approved that would allow for students to wear crew neck T-shirts and did not require a belt, along with other changes. Please contact your student’s school for a complete list of the new approved dress code before you go school shopping.New Moore Haven High School construction under wayThere are many changes on the way for MHHS, starting with the campus plan for this school year. With construction of the new school starting there will be several changes to traf c ow, bus pickup/drop off, parking and arrival at school for car riding students for both MHHS and MHES. A detailed plan of these changes will be available prior to the start of the school year.Thank you for fundingSecuring funding for the new MHHS project was not an easy task and the Glades County School District had many supporters and lawmakers working on our behalf, such as Governor Rick Scott, Senator Bill Galvano, Representative Cary Pigman and Senator Denise Grimsley. There were many others, but these were instrumental to our cause. On Aug. 8 at 5 p.m., Senators Galvano and Grimsley along with Representative Pigman will be at the school district of ce for a chec k presentation for the rst installment of the $23.6 million for construction. The public is welcome to attend the ceremony. Earlier this summer, on behalf of the Glades County School District, I was able to personally thank Governor Rick Scott for helping secure funding for the new MHHS project.

The facility also has several inmates who are furthering their education through Stratford Career Institute, Ashworth College, LSU and Ohio University. Studies have shown that GEDs are at the very top of programs that reduce recidivism. According to the National Correctional Education Association, inmates who earn a GED are 25 percent less likely to reoffend. Inmate graduates also have a higher likelihood of nding meaningful, full-time employment upon release, another factor that cuts recidivism rates. In 2011 alone, nearly 3,000 inmates received their GEDs at a CCA facility. “The educational staff, including inmate teaching assistants, went out of their way to give focused individual instruction in the areas I needed the most help with. Thanks to them I was able to quickly complete the program and pass the GED test,” said inmate David Denneen, who received his GED. “I am impressed with the educational department and program at the Moore Haven Correctional Facility.” Moore Haven Correctional Facility’s inmates join the rest of Florida’s accomplished graduates as they celebrate their successes and look toward the opportunities to come.

15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 25, 2013 BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church, ClewistonNaiman was a commander for the King of Aram (2 Kings 5ff). He did great things for the king, but he suffered from leprosy. Needless to say, the king was worried about his “valiant soldier” and wanted things to be better for him. A slave girl that served Naiman’s wife told her about seeing the prophet Elisha in Samaria. Out of desperation, Naiman tells his king about the possibility of being healed. The story goes on: The King of Aram asks a favor from the King of Israel, but the latter is fearful. He remarks, “Am I God?” Nevertheless, when Elisha hears of his king’s plight, he says, “Have the man come to me and he will know there is a prophet in Israel.” Elisha is obviously a man of faith and not daunted by the dif culty of the situation. Naiman shows up at Elisha’s house, complete with chariots, horses and contingent. Elisha sends out a messenger to say, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times ... (v. 10),” and Naiman is incensed. He talks about better rivers back home, surely the prophet would come out and wave his hand over him, but no, he sends only a messenger. Naiman’s servants get hold of him and convince him to do what the prophet bids him to do. He does it and he is healed. That is the story of many of us. We expect God to act in a certain way for us, but God chooses otherwise. We are anticipating what God should do and He goes and does something else. We call upon Him when our other “gods” let us down, and we don’t like the answer. I see God at work in strange ways sometimes, but He’s in there working even if I don’t always understand, or things aren’t going as I think they ought to go. That’s something I’ve come to believe and know. Elisha speaks for the God he knows and doesn’t pull any punches. He tells his king, “Have the man come to me ...” and Naiman shows up. Elisha is a man of faith in spite of the wrangling between kings, or the political rami cations of “what if we fail” or the trying to second guess the powers that be. He will pray. He has faith his prayers will be answered, and his prayers were answered. Today, I’ve seen a lot of pray-ers who attempt to be “politically correct” and not offend anyone with their prayers, to try to be all-inclusive lest someone not like their offerings. I believe that when someone calls upon me to pray, they want me to use prayers that speak to the God I know and who will act. I am not denigrating the prayers of others. They do the same thing and I respect their invoking God as they understand Him. At one level, I believe we all offer such prayers. Elisha no doubt knew there were gods in Aram, but was called upon because of his faith in the God he knew. That worked and continues to work. I do the same when I call upon someone for any kind of help or offering. Trusting that he is doing the best within his own sphere of activity, profession or vocation. I expect him to offer me the best he has to give as he understands it, taking my needs into consideration but understanding I call upon him because he has something to offer. “In my father’s house there are many mansions ...” (John) and the Lord prayed “... that they all may be one ...” -Yes, and I believe that we have a responsibility to work toward that end. In the meantime and in the tradition of Elisha and so many, many others, let us offer our best: that we contribute to the breadth and depths of the traditions of faith, with all of the richness and variety that may add to our understanding.
