2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 26, 2013 Charles W. Lucas was appointed to the Board of Directors of Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative at its Sept. 19 board meeting, lling the unexpired term ending January 2015 held by the recently retired Chairman George H. Wedgworth. Lucas, of Ft. Myers, earned his Masters of Business Administration from the University of South Florida and has been active in Florida agriculture since 1981. He is currently president of King Ranch Florida Division, where he oversees the company's agricultural operations, including citrus on the east and west coasts and sugarcane, sod, rice and winter vegetable operations in the Everglades Agricultural Area. Prior to joining King Ranch as president of its Consolidated Citrus Limited Partnership in 2005, he was vice president of Southern Gardens Citrus and senior vice president of Turner Foods. Lucas sits on the Board of the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association and the Florida Land Council. He has held several leadership positions in the citrus industry, including serving as a commissioner on the Florida Department of Citrus, president of Florida Citrus Processors Association, chairman of the National Juice Products Association and director of Florida Citrus Mutual. "Charlie's tenure in Florida agriculture and keen business acumen will make him a great asset to our board," said Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida Chairman John L. Hundley. "His leadership in the citrus industry will prove to be valuable in his new role at the Cooperative." In accepting his appointment Lucas said, "I'm honored to join the Board of the Cooperative. The Cooperative comprises some of the most forward-thinking farmers anywhere in the county." Lucas added, "To be part of the world's largest sugar re ning company is really exciting and I hope to be able to contribute to the continued success of the Cooperative." Wedgworth announced his full retirement and stepped down from the Board in August, after 52 years at the helm. The board passed a resolution honoring Wedgworth for his many contributions to the Cooperative and betterment of Glades agriculture at the September board meeting. Lucas Appointed to Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative Board BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department of Health Flu seasons can be unpredictable. Cases of seasonal u are reported every year, but the time of year, the severity and the length of the season can vary from one year to another. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the U.S. in January or February, however, seasonal u activity can begin as early as October and continue to occur into the month of May. Flu viruses are constantly changing, so it's not unusual for new u virus strains to appear each year. Yearly u vaccinations should begin in September or as soon as the vaccine is available. (Remember, it takes up to two weeks to provide protection after receiving the shot.) The u viruses are usually spread from droplets when an infected person doesn't cover their mouth when coughing or sneezing. Sometimes people get infected from touching something with u viruses on it, then, before they get a chance to wash their hands, they end up touching their nose, eyes or mouth which can transfer the u virus into their bodies. Many other viruses spread these ways, too. People infected with the u may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven days after becoming sick. That means people may be able to spread the u to others before they even know they are sick! Here are some tips to help prevent the spread of u. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it, or cough into your elbow (not your hand). Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because germs are spread this way. Try to keep your distance from anyone who may be sick. If you're sick, keep your distance from others or stay home. Finally, get re-vaccinated every year because u viruses change. Getting a u shot not only protects you from getting the u, but you are also protecting your family, friends, co-workers, or anyone that you may come in contact with. Flu shots may prevent severe illness. Over 200,000 people are hospitalized every year from u related complications. Kids under two years of age and adults over 65 years of age are more likely to be hospitalized from the effects of the u. Flu shots may also prevent u-related deaths. Each year, thousands of people in the U.S. die because of the u. Most of these deaths are infants and people aged 65 and older. More people die from the u than from any vaccine-preventable disease. Protect yourself, your family and friends by getting vaccinated. It’s Flu Season! "The Cooperative comprises some of the most forward-thinking farmers anywhere in the county. To be part of the world's largest sugar re ning company is really exciting and I hope to be able to contribute to the continued success of the Cooperative."— Charles W. Lucas

The runner-up pulled 4,000 pounds. The owners of the two horses wondered how much the animals could pull if they worked together. So they hitched them up and loaded the sled. To everyone's surprise, the horses were able to pull 12,000 pounds -that's 3,500 pounds more than if they had gone alone! This is an example of synergy taking place -where combining forces produces better results than individual effort. Simply de ned, it means that the effect of the whole is greater than the sum of the effects of the individual parts. We see this in the migration of geese. By ying in a "V" formation, each goose can y longer and faster than they could if they ew alone. The updraft of the wings of the goose in front of them helps make ight easier for the goose following. When the lead goose gets tired, it drops back and another takes his or her place. The geese in the back honk encouragement to those in front. Someone estimated that the ock can travel 71 percent further by this apping, rotating, helping and honking, which enables them to accomplish what they set out to do more quickly and ef ciently. The same can apply to us. Teamwork will produce an overall better result than if each person was working toward the same goal individually. An acronym for team: T.E.A.M = Together Everyone Achieves More! In the community sense, think of what we could accomplish if everyone came together for a common purpose! Why not come out and share in this experience right now? Through this next Sunday, a call has gone out for the Clewiston community to come together to help build the "Sweetest Town Playground." You might ask, "What difference would I make?" Yet one person joined together with many others can make the difference between the project being completed or just dreamed about. Teamwork makes the dream work! In the spiritual sense, Christians sometimes think they can't change the world. We ask, "What can one person do?" Yet a timid Christian voice can become a roar when the voice joins together with the voices of others in a congregation, and the voices of the entire body of Christ. Think of the impact on the world we could have if we came together with other believers. The coordinated body of Christ could change the world on an unimaginable scale! Henry Ford said, "Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." Vince Lombardi said, "Individual commitment to a group effort -that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work." Religion ColumnTeamwork Makes the Dream Work The recreational harvest of red snapper will open Oct. 1 in state and federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In state waters, which are from shore to nine nautical miles in the Gulf, the season will remain open through Oct. 21, closing on Oct. 22. In federal waters, which are from nine nautical miles out to 200 nautical miles, the season will remain open through Oct. 14, closing on Oct. 15. These supplemental recreational red snapper seasons are for 2013 only. The minimum size limit in state and federal waters is 16 inches and the daily bag limit is two per harvester, per day. There is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew on for-hire vessels. Anglers are required to use circle hooks and dehooking devices when shing for any reef species, including red snapper, in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters. The requirement to use venting tools in federal waters was removed on Sept. 3. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider adopting similar changes at a future meeting. The intent of these rules is to help conserve shery resources by increasing the chances for a sh to survive after being caught and released.

Koty Cheyenne Lewis, 32, was found guilty Sept. 4 of second-degree murder with a rearm and aggravated assault with a rearm in the shooting death of Gordon Suleiman. Then Monday, Sept. 23, Judge Jack Lundy ordered Lewis to be sent to prison for 31 years on the murder conviction and for ve years on the aggravated assault conviction. Judge Lundy ruled that those sentences are to run consecutively. Under Florida law the second-degree murder conviction carries a minimum/mandatory penalty of 25 years in prison, while the minimum/mandatory term on the assault charge is three years. With that in mind, Assistant State Attorney Chris Klink said Lewis will have to serve the rst 28 years of his sentence in full. He will then serve 85 percent of the remaining eight years. “We asked for life,” said Mr. Klink. “But, having said that, it was a just sentence and the judge followed the law.” Upon his release from prison, Lewis will be placed on probation for a term of 20 years. Lewis was arrested Dec. 26, 2010, after he shot Mr. Suleiman who was helping a fellow Okeechobee bail bondsman, Gregory James, locate Lewis. Mr. Suleiman was shot one time in the left side of the chest with a .243 caliber ri e. He died at the scene. Mr. James, Mr. Suleiman and his wife Cynthia, went to a mobile home on Red Barn Road to arrest Lewis. At some point Lewis, who was armed with a ri e, stepped out from behind the trailer and pointed the gun at the three bondsmen and ordered them off the property. Lewis then ed and Mr. Suleiman and his wife gave chase. A few minutes later Mr. James heard a gunshot and Mrs. Suleiman scream, stated an arrest report by Detective Sergeant Ronnie Baker, of the Glades County Sheriff’s Ofce (GCSO). Lewis was apprehended a short time later by Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon and GCSO Deputy David Springman. The ri e was later found near some co w pens that were about 150 yards from where Mr. Suleiman was shot. When Lewis was taken into custody, a glass smoking pipe was reportedly found in his pocket. When the residue in the pipe was eld tested, that test indicated a positive result for the presence of methamphetamine. Mr. Klink said Mrs. Suleiman and other family members gave impact statements Monday and asked the judge to sentence Lewis to life in prison. Under sentencing guidelines, said the prosecutor, Lewis scored a prison term o f 28 years. Moore Haven man sentenced to 36 years in prison Koty C. Lewis By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County Democrat A law enforcement of cer with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) resigned after an investigation indicated he had inaccurately documented his hours worked, and had worked a private detail after being told he couldn’t. According to reports by Captain Cindy J ohnson, from FWC’s Of ce of Inspector General, former FWC of cer Butler Maynard’s off-duty work hours overlapped with his FWC hours. Capt. Johnson noted that Maynard had asked for permission to work for Padgett Investigations and Security in Clewiston as an unarmed security of cer. However, that request was denied. “The facts of this investigation revealed Maynard was aware his request to work for Padgett Security was denied but he worked the job regardless because he needed extra money to pay for his children’s excessive medical bills,” stated the captain’s report. Capt. Johnson stated there were also instances where Maynard used his unmarked FWC vehicle to drive to, and conduct patrols of, U.S. Sugar property for Padgett. Maynard reportedly told the investigator that he w orked approximately 16 hours a week for the private security rm. “However, there was no means of determining the exact amount of hours he worked, which presented the potential that Maynard was paid by Padgett for hours he did not work,” wrote Capt. Johnson in her report. Apparently, added the report, Maynard used his FWC vehicle to patrol sugar elds owned by U.S. Sugar on four or ve occasions. He also did not reimburse the state the cost incurred by him using the unmarked vehicle. The report points out that when he used his state-issued vehicle for off-duty work he was required to purchase collision and liability insurance coverage. In his interview with Capt. Johnson, Maynard said he was an FWC resource protection of cer and wore plain clothes. He also wore plain clothes when he worked for Padgett, stated the report. The captain’s report also documented seven occasions where Maynard claimed more hours on his time sheet than he actually worked. The report went on to state that he responded to a brush re on Feb. 10, 2013, but didn’t document his response in his daybook. When asked by the captain why this wasn’t documented, Maynard “... explained he was probably working for FWC while simultaneously claiming to be working for Padgett Security,” stated the report. Capt. Johnson stated that Maynard responded to the re because re ghters could not open a locked gate to get to the blaze. Maynard was able to help because he had bolt cutters in his FWC-issued pickup truck. However, continued the report, Padgett was not aware that Maynard was on duty for the security rm and assumed he was working for FWC when this occurred. FWC dispatch records apparently indicated Maynard was on scene at the re at 11:50 p.m., stated the report, while Padgett payroll records show he claimed to be on duty for Padgett from 6 p.m. until 2 a.m. Those dispatch logs also indicate that Maynard was on duty for FWC when he responded to the re, added the captain’s report. In February of this year Maynard requested permission to work for Padgett Security as an FWC armed uniformed security for a strike detail at U.S. Sugar. Padgett is the sole security company for U.S. Sugar and employees there had threatened to strike. This request was approved. Padgett records apparently showed that Maynard worked the strike detail on Feb. 6, 7, 20, 21 and 22. Padgett payroll records, stated Capt. Johnson, show that on Feb. 20, 21 and 22 Maynard was on roving patrol. On Feb. 6 and 7, continued the report, he was parked at a U.S. Sugar executive’s home who had received threats. Capt. Johnson stated in her report that it was her conclusion that all of the allegations leveled against Maynard be sustained.

Affordable Care Act Resources and AssistanceCFO Jeff Atwater and Department of Financial Services offer Affordable Care Act resources and assistance BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonCaspian Terns are the largest terns in the world. These birds are found on all continents except Antarctica. The largest breeding colony in North America is off the coast of Oregon. They regularly breed along the coastal areas across the United States and inland in the western United States, central Canada and the Great Lakes; however, they are considered a rare breeding bird in Florida. These birds nest in close association with Laughing Gulls and can be overlooked in large colonies of other terns, Laughing Gulls or Black Skimmers. During migration they winter along coastlines, large rivers and lakes. This large gull-like tern weighs about 1.4 pounds and measures about 21 inches in length with a wingspan of 50 inches. In ight their body is similar to a mid-sized gull. A similar species, the Royal Tern, has a more slender body and black shaggy crest. Adult Caspian Terns have a black cap, white body and large thick, brilliant red bill with a black tip. Juveniles have a blackish crown. The oldest know wild Caspian Tern lived to be 26 years old. Their call is a raspy heronlike "kowk." The juvenile's begging call is a high pitched whistling "sweeeea" that is heard frequently during migration and in the winter. Caspian Terns favor protected areas in fresh or saltwater habitats near island, beaches or other sparsely vegetated areas with open ground. They scout for sh while ying about 10 yards above the water. Upon spotting a sh, the tern will plunge in the water, usually submerging completely in order to capture their prey. These terns live almost entirely on sh, but will steal food from other birds and occasionally eat the eggs and young of other birds. When they are three to ve years of age, Caspian Terns begin to nest and breed in scattered colonies. They perform courtship feeding on the ground and aggressively defend their breeding territories. Their nest is a shallow scrape in bare sand or gravel lined with shells or vegetation where the female lays one to three pale buff eggs marked with dark blotches. The nesting pair incubates the eggs and cares for the young. The eggs hatch in 20 to 22 days with the downy chicks soon being able to walk with their eyes open. If undisturbed, the young will remain near or in the nest until they are capable of ight when they are 30 to 40 days old; however, the parents will feed them until ve to seven months after edging. Young Caspian Terns appear to have a dif cult time learning to catch sh ef ciently. Many of the young terns do not return to the nesting grounds for several years, preferring to remain on their wintering areas. To discover the best places for birding in inland Florida or around the world, visit the new link to Hotspot Explorer at: http:// ebird.org/ebird/hotspots. Caspian Terns are reported year round in inland Florida.

Special to the Glades County Democrat Just a glimpse of the tables in the Fellowship Hall at First Baptist Church, would conv ince anyone that fall has arrived! In addition to autumn table cloths, they were centered w ith scarecrows and little tubs containing corn candy. Following a covered dish meal, Keenagers, over 50 year olds in Glades County, enjoyed a time of reminiscing as Bobbi Brown led the group in a fun game of trying to guess what job each one held as their rst one for money. We were all surprised at how many said "picking cotton," including Pastor Sherrill Tillery. However, several did this backbreaking job just as part of their family chores, with the only pay being breakfast, dinner and supper. Other rst money-paying jobs were bagging groceries, balancing a real estate company's checkbook, and running errands. This round of guessing, led to a fun time of remembering things that went on in the childhood of these Keenagers. Many lived during the depression, and agreed that even though their family was poor, they didn't know it, as so was everyone else's family. A unanimous agreement was that they wouldn't trade these experiences when families ate together, and there was actual conversation around the supper table. Yes, the evening meal was supper not dinner dinner was at noon. Whatever your reason, if you missed this fun get together, plan to join us in October. The only requirement is that you or your spouse is at least 50 years old. Mark your calendar, so you don't set a doctor or dentist appointment for the third Thursday in October. You will miss a fun time, plus you will be in line for a prize for the Keenager who invites the most Keenagers to the October meeting.

Purchasing Policy Chairman Storter Board accepted changes made per the previous meetings directions, including a numerical "scorecard" for department heads to rate the performance of vendors; Attorney Pringle recommended adding language on Item 1 of page 5 "competitive selection process" and change Item 1A of page 6 from "competitive pricing" to "competitive selection process". Board tabled action until the form is brought back with these changes. Cypress Knee Museum Chairman Storter Board tabled until Oct. 8 meeting when current lease document can be presented. Review the study of the courthouse Comm issioner Grif n Board directed staff to prepare scope of services needed to perform courthouse repairs that had been pre-approved by courthouse grant funding including air-conditioning, electrical, security and insulation. $301,000 remains unspent of the courthouse renovation grant funds. The scope of work will be presented to Court A dministrator Dawn Oliver for written approval then bids will be advertised to perform the work; before the work is authorized, approval by the chief circuit judge is required. Board moved to suspend the hiring of BSSW architect services to develop a design criteria document and order of magnitude budget for improvements needed to bring the facility up to current standards for courtroom functions, security and ADA accessibility.

The auditor had conferred with Clerk Brown when the issues arose, but did not meet the terms of the contract in that the auditor did not inform the county in writing of the need for additional hours and the estimated cost. Contracts with Larson Allen, L.L.P. for auditing services Sandra Brown Board agreed to extend contract for scal year 2012-2013 auditing services for one more year at the same price as the last three years. Discussion included the need to go ahead and RFQ auditors starting in October for the 2014-2015 scal year. County Manager position A ttorney Pringle Board moved to direct staff to invite six candidates for an in-person interview Oct. 18. Candidates to be invited are Paul Carlisle, Timothy Day, Lee Evett, Charity Good, Alvin Jackson, and Gary Ritter. Travel allowance will not be paid. Interview questions used in the last selection process will be provided to candidates. Commissioner Grif n questioned the next step in the process, indicating he is reluctant to rank candidates when he is not satis ed with the choices. Commissioner Storter expressed desire to postpone action until after the rst of the year; motion carried 3-1 with Storter dissenting. Ground Lease with Institute St. Onge for the county business park parcel Attorney Pringle Board approved lease as modi ed by Attorney Pringle. Partial release for code enforcement lien Attorney Pringle Board agreed to partial release of code enforcement lien on property owned by Geoffrey Albury that was not involved in the code violation. Policy for addressing Glades County Board of County Commissioners Attorney Pringle Board adopted resolution and policy that was revised to comply with recent legislative changes concerning public input before the board. Consider budget amendment to retain administrative assistant position in the county manager's of ce. Of cial action to retain position and amend budget failed to pass Commissioner Echols motion seconded by Commissioner Stanley by 2-2 vote. (Commissioner Beck was absent.) Constitutional of cers County attorney Pringle asked for direction in responding to contact by Jeffrey Sanford whose property was acquired in July 2013 by the county in foreclosure due to code violations and was since declared surplus with county's intent to market to sell. Board directed attorney Pringle to bring to the board at the next meeting options for disposition which could include marketing through realtor or public auction or sealed bids. The matter will be a business agenda item open for public input, including any from Mr. Sanford. Pringle told the board that the Community Associations' Property Management agreements expire Sept. 30, and he will contact each CA with renewal forms that re ect the 2013-2014 budget changes in that the county will no longer be funding phone, security alarm, or pest control services. County Manager & department heads Bob Jones told the board the school board at the Sept. 26 meeting will discuss scheduling a joint meeting with the city council and county commission. Jones reminded the board of the legislative delegation meeting coming up Oct. 30. Jones gave the board a letter from Glades District School Superintendent notifying the board that the district had contracted with consultant GFA for inspection services of their new high school construction project, which releases the county from any responsibilities. Commissioner Storter inquired of the costs proposed by the building dept. to the district school board for permitting/inspection services. Bob Jones said he had seen two emails, one quoting $80k-$90k and then an hourly rate. Storter inquired what the school was paying GFA for the service. Avant Brown stated he was told $149,000 that also included one phase of inspection for $55,000 that the county could not provide. Storter expressed extreme displeasure that the county building department of cial did not propose clear prices to provide the service for the school, in that the inspectors were on staff, being paid whether or not the service was performed, and the county was losing out on getting $90,000 for their inspection services. She stated that the interim county managers should have been in attendance at the meeting with building of cials and school representatives, but they were not informed of the meeting. Because the school representatives were not given a clear price from the county to t in their construction budget, according to Mr. Bass "...was the major factor in their decision." {The county pays more than $195,000 salaries and bene ts for two building of cials/inspectors.) Public input on non-agenda items Dr. John Huysman informed the board that Edison State College has received a $1.4 million three-year grant and will develop a logistics curriculum that will be part of the new training center developed by St. Onge Institute in the county's industrial park. Commissioners' items and comments Commissioner Grif n reported on his participation as the board's representative on Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council noting there are grant monies for which we may qualify, with some being matching fund grants. He will wor k with staff and research options that may help the county.

He's tall, muscular and works out daily. But that didn't help him in his rst MMA competition last month. Bishop unapologetically related that the referee stopped the ght in the rst round. "I wasn't unconscious and they didn't call a doctor, but with that big guy sitting on me I just went down." That "big guy" (293 lbs.) was Billy Shelton from North Carolina. Shelton, 35 years old, now has Julius' title, King of the Casino. He's training harder and more than ever now. "I haven't lost two matches backto-back yet. Most of my losses were title matches," he said. He's waiting for the promoters to line up a contender for the November venue in Immokalee. Meantime his friend and mentor, Edward Smith of Clewiston is keeping him more motivated than ever, providing video training as well as moral support. Perhaps Bishop's interest in this wellsupervised sport will encourage Moore Haven youths to exercise regularly and not think of folks who are over 30 years of age as "over the hill." After all, Julius Bishop is only 48! MMA a challenge for Bishop

Dated this 11th day of September, 2013. Barbara S. Butler Clerk of Circuit Court Hendry County, Florida 452442 CN 9/19,26;10/3,10/2013 15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 26, 2013 BY PATTY BRANT Independent News MediaLocal agriculture representatives are raising some concerns about the recent decision by University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) to “repurpose” the IFAS Research Center in Immokalee as a demonstration center. Located on 320 acres on S.R. 29 outside of Immokalee, the IFAS Center in Immokalee opened in 1986 to provide research for agriculturalists in a ve-county area, including Collier, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties. A demonstration center uses applied research and works with the ag community. The Immokalee site will still do “active, relevant work,” Ruth Borger, assistant vice president for IFAS Communications, said. An advisory committee will be named to formulate the center’s new focus. Made up of local ag interests, the board will offer an opportunity for local leaders to carve out a de nitive role for the center. Faculty will be transferred to other research and education centers. Staff at the Immokalee facility will be allotted time to complete current projects, ending operation as a Research and Education Center on Sept. 1, 2014. This will also allow staff and faculty time to nd other employment and relocate if necessary. County Agent Gene McAvoy noted that, over the years, the extension of ce and growers have conducted many activities there. He pointed out that an advisory committee will be appointed to meet with administration and mold the center’s new role, but he did say he felt the extension service may need to take on some managerial responsibility for demonstration trials. He said he is familiar with several of the IFAS extension and demonstration centers and has some concerns about future funding. McAvoy said the IFAS Center in Immokalee has always been important to the area’s $2 billion agriculture industry. Citrus is huge. Vegetables are huge. Livestock is huge,” he commented, adding that “research is essential to keeping our competitive edge.” He voiced concerns over the change to the program, noting that research is the only thing that sets American agriculture apart anymore. “We don’t have cheap labor anymore. We don’t have cheap land anymore. Research is all we have left to keep that edge,” said McAvoy. The model has always been that IFAS research comes up with the information on local ag issues, which it then passed on by way of the extension to the growers. McAvoy is keeping an open mind, but said it’s hard to see how another model could be as effective. The Gulf Citrus Growers Association President Wayne Simmons has similar concerns. The announcement came as a surprise to area growers, catching them off guard. “I thought we would have been involved more” in such a decision, Simmons said. He noted that, recently, the center’s research staff has dwindled to six of its original 12 or so. Still, he recognizes that “we all must be ef cient.” He said the outcome remains “up in the air,” but agricultural folks are open to seeing what happens. Simmons pointed out that the IFAS center has always provided important local research geared to local southwest Florida growing conditions. “I hope we don’t lose the interaction with research,” he said. He also said they’ve been assured the relationship between research and growers will continue. He hopes representatives of all major local commodities from the area will be included in planning the future of the center. The change may save some costs, but is mainly an effort to consolidate duplicated programs, according to Borger. She said it’s an attempt to become more effective with money, personnel and equipment. The IFAS Center in Immokalee has approximately 70 employees on site: seven are faculty members, the rest are graduate students and staff. It’s focus has been on citrus, vegetable, horticulture, entomology, soil and water science and plant pathology research, as well as extension programs. Duplication of services with Lake Alfred, Gulf Coast and Indian River Research and Education Centers is cited as the reason for the change. The UF/IFAS aim is to evaluate programming to “best serve southwest Florida interests.” The ultimate role the Immokalee center will play has yet to be determined. Borger explained that details still need to be worked out. Borger called the move a reclassifying of the site as a demonstration center. A research and education center has faculty in residence, as well as county agents. In the end, she said, the change will probably not even be noticed by the public. “We understand the huge impact on the community.” Borger said. “The goal is to minimize that impact.” The institute hopes to enhance its service to the agriculture community. “We exist to help agriculture growers,” Borger commented and promised, “we will not abandon that.” The advisory committee is to be co-chaired by the UF/ IFAS District Extension Director Charles Vavina and Director of Operations UF/IFAS Hastings Partnership Scott Taylor. Agricultural and community stakeholders will be appointed to create a new vision for the site. This advisory committee is to be chosen this fall, with its recommendations due in the early spring of 2014. John Arthington, director of the Range Cattle and Research Center in Ona, will preside over the center during the transition. In a letter from UF/IFAS, of cials stated, “At a demonstration site, we utilize multiple means to engage clientele in ways that help them learn about the latest varieties, methods, strategies and technologies that positively affect pro tability and sustainability. It is clear from our existing demonstration sites -Hastings and Live Oak -that what makes this process effective is the collaborative spirit and approach that is adopted. ... As the future plans for the operation are developed, we will have a better idea of the complete personnel requirements.” IFAS Center to be ‘Re-purposed’
