Page 3 Historical Society News ... Page 18 Sugarcane harvester killed in accident ... Page 8 Mammogram bus makes local visit ... Page 13 The hunt is on ... Inside! By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County Democrat One of Glades County’s historic sites could live for another day due to action taken by a handful of residents and a vote by the Glades County Commission on Tuesday. The Cypress Knee Museum and three acres located at 8358 U.S. 27 in Palmdale could be leased by the county for at least 5 years to see if grants can be obtained to pay for future development. The lease has gained the support of the Tourist Development Council. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection has declared the museum as surplus property. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is interested in the lease but would likely tear down the building. TDC Chairman Hugo Geistman said he felt it was a good opportunity for the county. He agreed that the county should not spend tax dollars on the project. He said in the next ve years grants could be found to maybe save the museum and take the burden off the county. “You have the option of getting out of the management agreement. There are all kinds of opportunities for this building. It does not necessarily have to be a museum or welcome center. The possibilities are there,” he explained. The TDC supported a ve-year lease to keep the options available to the county. There has been private nancial support offered to pa y for insurance on the property. Another cost would be cleanup of the building which was vandalized with graf ti in recent years. There are also nonpro t agencies that have shown an interest in the property. County may save Cypress Knee MuseumSee COUNTY — Page 8 By Barbara BrownSpecial to the Glades County Democrat Kim Clement, newly installed president of Glades County Woman’s Club, led the members to an astounding success with the High Heel-A-Thon this past Saturday. The event began with registered walkers completing a one-mile course. Walkers from all ages participated including a 75-year-old man, to a red-boned hound named “Henry” who was decorated with a princess in a saddle, to carry out the theme of “Breast Cancer Awareness.” It is rumored that Harry Ogletree is blessed with a winning streak, as he added to his winnings when Daisy pooped in a square during the Cow Chip Bingo, for which Harry held the winning number. Glades County Woman’s Club decided that it was almost impossible for a family of three or four kids to let them participate in rides due to the cost. So they voted to have several bounce houses, and slides that the children could enjoy for free, with the club picking up the tab. From the looks of all the kids taking advantage of this fun event, it was a great decision on the part of the club! The Glades County Woman’s will present a check to The Florida Breast Cancer Foundation for half of their hard work, and the other half will go to fund the club’s projects. If you left the Chalo Nitka grounds before the $1.99 Womanless Beauty Pageant, you missed the show of the year! It was judged by members of the Lake Placid Woman’s Club, and even one of their very staid judges joined a contestant when he/she asked her to dance. Another judge decided one was just too sexy, and placed money in his gown. Be sure to get your copy of the Glades County Democrat next week for more about this event, and more pictures. Woman’s Club High Heel-A-Thon is a success Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Lacy Green/Glades County Sharp ShootersMany teams joined together and came out to support this day in remembrance of breast cancer awareness month on Oct. 5, the Inaugural Breast Cancer Awareness High Heel-A-Thon.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 10, 2013 We Need to Reorganize! Dives and LazarusBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchSometime ago, there was a cartoon in a church magazine. An older minister was talking to a younger one, saying, “I’ll tell you why we don’t follow the Death-of-God movement, because we’ll be out of jobs, that’s why!” I would hope that a sense of call, spending time in training, personal journeys and a sense of vocation, would make it more than that; and it in fact does for those who serve Churches. What seemed humorous to me was the appeal to a vested interest. There’s an element of vested interest in many of our relationships: clergy have a certain vested interest in the commitments they’ve made and the thought of making a change can be very devastating. So, too, with laypersons and their commitments to their faith and their churches. “It was good enough for old ... and it’s good enough for me, ‘nuff said.” For years, I bought one make of car or truck. They served me well and were good transportation. I could work on them when needed and they were reliable. Later, I found I couldn’t work on them, the mileage wasn’t what I expected and I started needing out-of-warranty repairs. My questioning led to a change in makes after talking to a number of persons about their makes and reliability. Others have shared similar experiences about all sorts of things, wondering if in fact it’s worth thinking about a change. I attended a workshop at the University of Florida awhile ago titled, “Crust Over the Volcano.” It was about our growth coming from having to rethink and reorganize what we’ve been doing for awhile and taking for granted as the way things should be done. The theme was about all of the chaos that goes on in life and our attempts to impose order on it, building a “crust” over the “volcano” of the chaos of life. In the meantime, the chaos is still present and every once in a while, breaks through the “crusts” we carefully build to keep things from “erupting.” The presenters from the University maintained that it is in the process or reorganization of our lives that growth and gain occur. I see many “crusts” we maintain: from favorite kinds of cars, brands in the store, kinds of friends we choose, kinds of music, churches -you name it. There is a Biblical parable about one identied as “Dives,” a rich man who departs from this life and another, Lazarus, who suffered during his earthly lifetime (Luke 16:19-31). The rich man is tormented in the afterlife and calls to his spiritual father, Abraham, to have mercy on him “…and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his nger in water and cool my tongue, for I am in agony… (v.24).” It apparently doesn’t dawn on him that Lazarus has his own life and own needs, and he has not been created to simply do the bidding of another. When Dives is aware that he will not be comforted, he asks at least that Lazarus be sent to his father’s house – he has ve brothers – and to warn them (v.28). He is reminded that they have Moses and the Prophets, but they apparently have not listened. Dives replies, “No, father Abraham, but if someone goes to them from the dead, they will repent.” Abraham responds, “If they do not listen to Moses and the prophets, neither will they be convinced even if someone rises from the dead (v.31).” The question that came to mind as I read these passages is, “What exactly keeps people from looking at what is going on? What are the ‘crusts’ over their ‘volcanoes?’” It’s a question of vested interests and “we always did it that way” or “it was good enough for…” The message is, “Take a look if things aren’t going as they should,” and even if they are, growth occurs when we go back and explore those things we’ve taken for granted. The message, “Don’t be afraid to question!” We might be surprised where we nd ourselves when we do -and pleasantly surprised at that! If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@ saintmartins-clewiston.org.Are You AC or BC?BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchWere you born AC or BC? By “AC” or “BC,” I mean “After Cell phones” or “Before Cell phones.” I was born BC. The rst cell phone, invented in 1973 by Martin Cooper, was 9x5x1, .75 inches and weighed 2.5 pounds. Things certainly have changed since then. In a world of a little over 7 billion people, there are now approximately 5.6 billion cell phone subscriptions. This means about 79.86 percent of the world’s people have cell phones. That’s pretty amazing when you think about it. In the last forty years, cell phone technology has changed the way we socialize, do business and function daily. We have never been so closely connected and there has never been so much immediately accessible information as there is today. With online access, each cell phone is almost the equivalent of having the Library of Congress in our hands. We can Google or access just about anything. Unfortunately, all of the online access has also led to another epidemic – identity theft. With just a few bits of our personal information, anyone’s identity can be electronically hijacked. Bank accounts can be drained, credit card debt can be run up and personal credit can be ruined. Once your identity is stolen, your name is no longer your own. Because of this, one of the fastest growing businesses over the past few years has been the security business, especially companies that promise to keep your identity safe from electronic thieves and watchdog all your personal information. For a price, they promise to keep your identity safe -as long as your identity is de ned by what you own and what you owe. Our personal identity, however, is more than a nancial history. Our true identity, who we are in this world, should be beyond the grasp of any bandit. The truth is, however, many of us are losing our identity to thieves. We get so caught up in trying to make a living, making mad dashes to many different activities, meeting deadlines, coping with the stress of meeting other people’s demands and our own high expectations, it is very easy to lose sight of “us,” andto lose our identity to situational thieves. This is especially true for Christians. We are suffering from a loss of identity. Do we know what it means to be a disciple of Jesus? Do we have an identity as Christians? This has not been a good week for Protestants. The Pew report on religion in America was recently released and it revealed that the fastest growing “religious” group in America is made up of people with no religion at all. According to the Pew survey, one in ve Americans is not af liated with any religion. What is your identity? At the very center of your being, who are you? It’s a core question, since every corporation and every institution that understands these digital times is reinventing itself around “who we are” and away from “what we sell” or “what we offer.” Who are we? We are Christians, followers of Christ. We are living proof of the difference a relationship with Jesus Christ can make in a life. It’s time, church, to put our identity back into our ministry.

Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 10, 2013 Attention Hunters Inner tubes, towables and in atable tubes are all commonly used names for a popular boating item, and they come in many different shapes and sizes. "Towed water sports can be a great way to enjoy Florida's beautiful waterways," said Major Richard Moore, head of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) Boating and Waterways Section. "We just want everyone to be as safe as possible when doing so." Unfortunately, there have been several recent accidents around the state in which passengers on a towable device struck an object, such as a dock, channel marker, piling or other boat. Last year, ve people were injured and two were killed during these types of accidents. The FWC says these and other accidents can be prevented through a few key precautions, including one particularly important one. "When you are operating a boat that is towing passengers on a tube or something similar, their fate is in your hands," Moore said. "They are not able to steer themselves in a safe direction and must rely on you to keep them safe. The main safety consideration is keeping them away from all other objects." Although there is no required speci c distance to keep away from xed objects or other boats, operators should not pull the tuber close enough to anything where there is risk of collision. Doing so could not only result in a citation but, more importantly, it puts the life of the person being towed in jeopardy. "A good rule of thumb is this: twice the line should be ne," Moore said. "If you consider the length of your towline and are diligent in keeping your boat at least two lengths of your towline away from all boats and other objects, you are much more likely to provide your riders with an enjoyable, safe time on the water." The FWC says that these additional safety tips are very important, as well: Any riders being towed behind a vessel are required to wear a life jacket; however, it cannot be the in atable style. The boat operator must have another person onboard who can observe the rider(s) being towed and alert the operator of any issues. In place of the observer, the operator may use appropriate wide-angle rear-view mirrors. However, the safest bet is to use a "spotter" or observer. That way, the operator can concentrate on driving the boat and pay attention to what is in front of and around him or her. The spotter has a much better ability to watch the person being towed. Boaters may pull riders on towable water sport items only during the day -from a halfhour before sunrise until a half-hour past sunset. The FWC wants to ensure that boaters can enjoy all that Florida's waterways have to offer. For more boating information, go to MyFWC. com/Boating and click on "Boating Regulations" or "Safety & Education." FWC: Stay Safe while Tubing Helicopter Crashes off State Road 82On Sept. 29 at approximately 11:10 a.m., Hendry County Sheriff's deputies responded to the area of Lazy Springs ATV Park, off of State Road 82 in Hendry County, after receiving reports that a helicopter had crashed. When deputies arrived on scene, they found the pilot, 60-year-old Donald Purden, of Fort Myers, conscious and alert. Purden appeared to be suffering from what was believed to be non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital. Witnesses reported the pilot had attempted to land when the helicopter began to auto-rotate. The helicopter lifted approximately 30 to 40 feet into the air and, after losing power, the aircraft dropped to the ground. The reported crash is being investigated by the Federal Aviation Administration.

PHILLIP L. PELLETIER HENDRY COUNTY PROPERTY APPRAISER PUBLIC NOTICE INITIAL CERTIFICATION (CHAPTER 197.323) 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 10, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonLaughing Gulls breed along the Atlantic Coast from Maine to Florida, and around the Gulf Coast from Florida to South Texas, as well as the Caribbean and isolated locations on the west coast of Mexico. They are the only gull species that breeds in Florida. Studies indicate that most of the Gulf Coast breeders remain close to their breeding grounds, but the northeastern birds usually spend the winter in Florida or as far as Central or South America. These medium-sized gulls have a wingspan of about 40 inches. They have long legs and stout, fairly long bills. Laughing Gulls are medium gray above and white below. During the summer, adults have a crisp black hood, white around the eye and a reddish bill. In the winter, the hood becomes a blurry gray mask on a white head, and the bill becomes dark. The legs are reddish-black to black. Immature birds are much browner and take two to three years to acquire their adult plumage. The oldest recorded Laughing Gull lived to be 22 years old. Their most common call is a loud descending series of laughing notes, which last three or more seconds. These birds also make a short stuttered alarm call when they are approached too closely by predators or humans. This alarm call can intensify into a long, loud, laughing cadence. Laughing Gulls are found along the coasts, bays, estuaries, dredged spoils, land lls and inland near lakes or rivers. They are often seen in plowed elds or parking lots. These birds will eat almost anything, including food they catch or steal, handouts, garbage or discards from shing boats. They are normally most active during the day, but they will forage for food at night during the breeding season. Pairs form in the spring during migration or at the breeding location. The male and female Laughing Gull usually build their nest together, with the male bringing most of the nesting material, which is arranged by the female. If the male can't nd a mate, he will start building a nesting platform in order to attract a female. The Laughing Gull's nest is built on the ground or on top of beach vegetation and other debris. Vegetation and grasses are arranged to form the rim of the foot-wide nest. This nest is attached to surrounding vegetation in order to keep it from being swept away if the area is ooded. In May or June, the female lays three to four olive-colored eggs marked with brown, which are incubated for 20 days. The parents feed the young for about two months. The young edge when they are 35 days old. To discover the best places for birding in inland Florida or around the world, go to the new link to Hotspot Explorer at: http://ebird.org/ebird/ hotspots. A few non-breeding Laughing Gulls wander inland during the summer in Florida and are reported near Lake Okeechobee or the Caloosahatchee.

Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 4.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.28/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.38/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 37.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 24.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 21.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 41.9 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. "The national average has continued its decline which has been continuing for 34 consecutive days," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "And the odds are very good that prices will continue to decline in most areas in the week ahead. Perhaps most notable at this point of decline is how much cheaper gas prices stand versus the same date last year, with motorists realizing prices that are 50 cents or more lower. Much of the difference can be blamed on more active Atlantic waters last year that brought more storms than what we've seen this year," DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

Dr. Harris Friedman said he has agreed to set up a nonpro t organization to apply for grants, create fundraisers, and pursue other options for the property. Dr. Friedman and Tom Gaskins III have agreed to pay the lease payment of $300 for the next year. The TDC has agreed to pay the lease for the next four years. Commissioner Paul Beck said he must w eigh the opportunity with the cost. The building was constructed in the 1950s long before the building codes were approved. He listed his concerns to the commission that the entire building might have to be replaced. Another option would be a shell building to surround the existing facility. "I hate to turn this down. I would like to see the opportunity given for further development. Turning it over to the state at this time would not be the best long-term solution for Glades County," he added. Mr. Beck said he would not support the use of county funds for the project. Commissioner Russell Echols said maintenance of the property will be a cost to the county and he did not support that expenditure. Commissioner Tim Stanley said the maintenance costs would be minimal and he supported the lease. Chairman Donna Storter Long suggested a w elcome center, of ce for the Tourist Development Council, and even a rejuvenation of the Cypress Knee Museum could be possible. She said the county would not obligate money. She suggested tourist tax dollars could be used. Commissioners directed Attorney Richard Pringle to look into the lease agreement and determine a level of costs this would bring to the county. The vote was 4-1, with Commissioner Echols in opposition. In other business Tuesday, the commission considered a special assessment for re protection. Since 2005 Glades County has considered the option of a re tax to help fund re protection in the community. The need for adequate re protection has grown as has the need for revenues in the county. A 2005 study needs to be updated. Acting County Manager Bob Jones has contacted the vendor who conducted the study. It is a service base tax. He said in the future it could allow the county to reduce their regular ad valorem millage rate and the current municipal taxing units they have in place. The estimate of cost for an update to the study is $20,000. In 2005, the fee for the average resident would have been $38. Mobile homes would have been assessed $22 per year. Each acre in agriculture would pay only 3 cents for re protection. Commissioner Echols said there are no exemptions for any residents when it comes to an MSBU (Municipal Services Bene t Unit). He said when it comes to police and re each resident should contribute. "I think it is a fair form of taxation. I would caution that we should lower the millage rates when we gure out how much money the MSBU will bring in." Commissioner Stanley said he wants to know what level of service would be required by this new tax. Attorney Richard Pringle said RV Parks sued the county over the MSBU for EMS services. The Florida Supreme Court ruled that EMS service did not bene t real property, but individuals. Courts have ruled that re protection does constitute a bene t to property and an assessment can be levied for this service. Commissioner Beck said he would like at least two rms to bid on the study. He admitted the county can't afford to have a re department on everyone's door step. One question he has is how much response time is acceptable to residents. He pointed out volunteer re companies do provide good protection in the county but are not available 24 hours per day. "If we do this thing, I want some kind of reduction in our ad valorem taxes," he added. Commissioner Dennis Grif n said Glades County residents who pay ad valorem taxes have a heavy burden which should be relieved. Commissioners decided to go out for request for quali cations to conduct a study on the creation of an MSBU for re services. In other business, the commission approved a proclamation that declared October 2013 as National Residents' Rights Month in Glades County. Rita Lavorgna of the Florida Department of Elder Affairs Long Term Care Ombudsman Program accepted the proclamation. She explained the goal is to let residents of over 300 elder care facilities in their sevencounty district, know they have rights to dignity and quality care. They cover Glades, Hendry, Charlotte, Desoto, Sarasota, Lee and Collier County. In other business: The commissioners voted to extend their contract with Clifton, Larson, Allen, LLP for audit services for two years. They ranked Aim Engineering as the top rm to provide engineering services to the county. Negotiations will begin forthwith. Craig A. Smith & Associates was ranked second and Johnson Engineering third. Chairman StorterLong abstained from the rankings because a relative is employed by one of the ve rms that submitted proposals. Commissioners agreed to hire a rm to replace insulation for the Glades County Courthouse. Grant dollars will fund this project. They agreed to interview six candidates for the position of Glades County Manager during a special meeting on Oct. 18 at 9 a.m. COUNTYContinued From Page 1 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 10, 2013 By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County Democrat MOORE HAVEN -A Clewiston man was killed late last week in an incident at an elevator station located in a sugarcane eld off of County Road 720, which is southeast of Moore Haven.

1 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions October 2013 By Andi CooperDucks UnlimitedFor most people, Florida brings to mind one of two images—beaches or Everglades. Florida has more than 11 million acres of wetlands, including tidal marshes, Southern swamps, mangrove swamps, river-side or riparian ooded forests and freshwater marshes. These wetlands make Florida an incredibly diverse state and provide habitat for many species of sh and wildlife, including waterfowl. As the terminus of the Atlantic Flyw ay, Florida can provide important wintering habitat for a variety of waterfowl. For this reason, Ducks Unlimited, the w orld leader in wetlands conservation, has worked with state, federal and priv ate partners across the state to restore and enhance nearly 27,000 acres of important wetland habitat, much of which is open to public hunting. Thanks to its abundant wetlands, waterfowl habitat covers vast expanses of Florida, and hunter success rate is nearly twice the national average. Florida also boasts easier access to hunting areas than in many parts of the country. In general, duck hunting is permitted on any water body that has public access unless it’s closed for a speci c reason such as being in an area where rearms discharge is prohibited. To nd out when and where you can hunt, contact the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission’s regional o ces. Here we o er a few examples of prime public waterfowling in the Sunshine State. Lake Okeechobee is one of the most popular and historic waterfowling areas in Florida. The lake attracts large numbers of wintering waterfowl which are primarily found in the marshes along the western shore. Large ocks of scaup can be found in the more centrally located, open-water portions of the lake, but they can be challenging to hunt. Lake Okeechobee can o er some excellent duck hunting throughout the season, wintering a signi cant number of birds, including dabblers and some divers. The former are often found along the edge of lake in the marsh, while the latter prefer the open water in the middle of the lake. Big Bend Wildlife Management Area’s (WMA) Hickory Mound Unit is an impounded salt marsh in Taylor County managed to provide habitat for waterfowl and other wetland wildlife. In 2006, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) partnered with Ducks Unlimited to renovate the water control infrastructure and allow improved management for waterfowl. The project was supported by a North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) grant, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation and the Taylor Count y Board of County Commissioners. Other Ducks Unlimited projects improved habitat and hunting opportunities on Lake Miccosukee, T.M. Goodwin WMA and Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. T.M. Goodwin WM A is the only area managed by the FWC exclusively for waterfowl. Through a NAWCA grant, Ducks Unlimited helped FWC restore nearly 4,000 acres of marsh from agriculture to waterfowl habita t impoundments. The lakes and marshes of the upper St. Johns River basin have long been recognized among the bes t wintering waterfowl habitat in Florida. Historically, peak duck numbers averaged 15,000 with populations occasional exceeding 30,000. Merritt Island NW R generally holds the state’s largest concentration of pintails, and teal, mottled ducks, wigeon and scaup are frequentl y abundant. In addition to state agency-managed wildlife management areas and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Servicemanaged national wildlife refuges, Storm Wate r Treatment Areas managed by the South Florida Wate r Management District in conjunction with the FWC often o er outstanding public hunting opportunities in Palm Beach, Broward and Hendry counties. Free STA permits fo r waterfowl hunting are available through the FWC Total Licensing System a t license.myfwc.com. American wigeon, green-winged and blue-winged teal and northern pintails are often found on these areas.

Zone A is already into general gun season. Three hunting seasons that are just around the corner in other zones: muzzleloading gun, gray squirrel and dove. Immediately following the close of crossbow season in each zone, the muzzleloading gun season begins. Season dates on private lands run Nov. 23 – Dec. 6 in Zone B, Oct. 19 – Nov. 1 in Zone C and Dec. 7-13 in Zone D. During muzzleloading gun season, bows and crossbows are also legal methods of taking game on private lands, in addition to muzzleloaders. But on wildlife management areas (WMAs), only muzzleloaders may be used. The most common types of game to take during muzzleloader season are deer and wild hog. In the deer category, only bucks may be taken, and one antler must be at least 5 inches long above the hairline. The daily bag limit on antlered deer is two. You can hunt wild hogs yearround on private lands, and there are no bag or size limits. For hunting deer, muzzleloaders ring single bullets must be at least .40caliber. Guns ring two or more balls must be 20-gauge or larger. During muzzleloading gun season, you may not use muzzleloaders that take smokeless powder, ones that can be loaded from the breech or those with self-contained cartridge ammunition capabilities. It’s also legal to shoot gobblers and bearded turkeys during muzzleloading gun season. You may take only one per day, and there’s a two-bird, fall-season limit. But you can’t hunt turkeys in Holmes County during the fall or winter. On W MAs, bag limits and antler/size restrictions can di er, so check the specifics of the area before you hunt. Gray squirrel season on private lands starts Oct. 12 statewide and runs through March 2. There’s a daily bag limit of 12 gray squirrels, and shooting fox squirrels is against the law. Legal shooting hours are from a halfhour before sunrise to a half-hour after sunset. Except for turkeys, hunters may take resident game over feed such as corn but only on private lands. No baiting is allowed on WMAs. The rst phase of the mourning and white-winged dove season began Oct. 5 and ends Oct. 28 statewide. Shooting hours during this rst phase are noon to sunset, and there’s a 15-bird daily bag limit. The only rearm you’re allowed to use for hunting doves is a shotgun, but you can’t use one larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns must be plugged to a threeshell capacity (magazine and chamber combined). You may hunt doves over an agricultural eld, as long as the crop has been planted and manipulated under normal agricultural practices. However, it’s against the law to scatter agricultural products over an area for the purpose of baiting. Some things you can’t do while dove hunting include using ri es, pistols or crossbows; shooting from a moving vehicle; and herding or driving doves with a vehicle. In addition to a Florida hunting license, you’ll need a $5 muzzleloading gun permit to hunt during muzzleloader season. To hunt deer, you need a $5 deer permit, and if you’d like to take a fall turkey, you’ll need a $10 turkey permit ($125 for nonresidents). If you’re going to hunt doves, you’ll need a no-cost migratory bird permit, and if you hunt on a WMA, you also must h ave a management area permit, which costs $26.50. All are available at your local county tax collector’s o ce; through license agents; by calling 888-HUNT-FLORIDA; or by going online to License.MyFWC.com. Area special events...

The applicant, Cemex Construction Materials Florida, LLC, applied on May 23, 2013, to the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) for an environmental resource permit (ERP)/water quality certi cation modi cation for a surface water management system at an existing sand mine. In this modi cation, the applicant requested authorization to use synthetic gypsum to occulate the suspended sediment in order to facilitate clari cation of the mine lake waters. This mine has been in operations for approximately 20 years. The sand is mined using an electric hydraulic dredge. The sand is slurried and pumped to the processing plant. The product is extracted and the ne sand & process water (tailings) is returned to the mine lakes for use in reclamation. The ner fraction of the tailings becomes suspended in the lake water column due to the high clay and silt content of the material. The applicant intends to use synthetic gypsum in the clari cation of the water in the lakes. Synthetic gypsum is a product derived from ue gas desulfurization systems at electric power plants and is generally generated as a by-product from scrubbing sulfur dioxide from the emissions at coal red power plants. The scrubber system uses limestone and a forced oxidation system that produces the synthetic gypsum. The potential suppliers of the synthetic gypsum are TECO Energy Big B end Plant and Progress Energy Crystal River Plant. The size of the mine boundary remains as 894.4 acres. The total area to be excavated remains as 548.1 acres. The maximum estimated depth of mining (lake depths) is still approximately 50 feet below natural ground, which is 49.24 feet below the normal water level. The size of the impervious areas on the mine, 0.61 of an acre, will not increase. No additional wetlands will be impacted as a result of this modi cation. The post-mining land use of the 894.4-acre mine is not changing. It will be 350.1 acres of improved pasture (FLUCCS 211), 331.1 acres of water (includes littoral shor elines) [FLUCCS 500], 116.0 acres of freshwater marsh (FLUCCS 641), 70.9 acres of cropland and pastureland (FLUCCS 210), 9.6 acres of wax myrtle uplands (FLUCCS 429), 6.5 acres of borrow pits (FLUCCS 742), 6.1 acres of entr ance roads (FLUCCS 814) (FLUCCS 500), 3.0 acres of live oaks (FLUCCS 427), and 1.1 acres of mixed upland hardwoods (FLUCCS 438). No off-site discharge of water from the mining operation is authorized below the design 100-year, 3-day storm event. Surface water within reclaimed created lakes shall not connect to offsite wetlands or other surface waters below the design 100-year, 3-day storm event. The total area served by the system will be 894.4 acres. The operator is still required to comply with the signed and sealed Best Management Practices Plan. The expiration date of the construction phase remains as October 9, 2029. This permit will replace and supersede Permit Nos. 0277994001 thru 0277994-004. The mine is located on the east side of US 27, approximately three miles south of Palmdale, in Sections 11, 12, and 13, Township 41 South, Range 30 East, and in Sections 7 and 18, Township 41 South, Range 31 East, Glades County. It is in two drainage basins with the separation being the mine entrance road. On the north side of the entrance road, the land is in the Fisheating Creek watershed, Fisheating Creek basin, and Fisheating Creek sub basin. On the south side of the road, the mine is in the Caloosahatchee River watershed, East Caloosahatchee basin, Nicodemus slough sub basin. Under this intent to issue, the permit is hereby granted subject to the applicant’s compliance with any requirement in this intent to publish notice of this intent in a newspaper of general circulation and to provide proof of such publication in accordance with Section 50.051, F.S. This action is nal and effective on the date led with the Clerk of the Department unless a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., as provided below. If a suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is timely led, this intent to issue automatically becomes only proposed agency action on the application, subject to the result of the administrative review process. Therefore, on the ling of a timely and suf cient petition, this action will not be nal and effective until further order of the Department. When proof of publication is pro vided, if required by this intent, and if a suf cient petition is not timely led, the permit will be issued as a ministerial action. Because an administrative hearing may result in the reversal or substantial modi cation of this action, the applicant is advised not to commence construction or other activities until the deadlines noted below, for ling a petition for an administrative hearing or request for an extension of time, have expired and until the permit has been executed and delivered. Mediation is not available. A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received by the clerk) in the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Under Rule 62-110.106(4), F.A.C., a person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department’s action may also request an extension of time to le a petition for an administrative hearing. The Department may, for good cause shown, grant the request for an extension of time. Requests for extension of time must be led with the Of ce of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, before the applicable deadline. A timely request for extension of time shall toll the running of the time period for ling a petition until the request is acted upon. If a request is led late, the Department may still grant it upon a motion by the requesting party showing that the failure to le a request for an extension of time before the deadline was the result of excusable neglect. If a timely and suf cient petition for an administrative hearing is led, other persons whose substantial interests will be affected by the outcome of the administrative process have the right to petition to intervene in the proceeding. Intervention will be permitted only at the discretion of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. In accordance with Rule 62-110.106(3), F.A.C., petitions for an administrative hearing by the applicant must be led within 21 days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions led by any persons other than the applicant, and other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be led within 21 days of publication of the notice or within 21 days of receipt of the written notice, whichever occurs rst. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may le a petition within 21 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of ling. The failure of any person to le a petition for an administrative hearing within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) the name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner; the name, address, and telephone number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests are or will be affected by the agency determination; (c) a statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency decision; (d) a statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so indicate; (e) a concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the speci c facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modi cation of the agency’s proposed action; (f) a statement of the speci c rules or statutes that the petitioner contends require reversal ormodi cation of the agency’s proposed action, including an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the speci c rules or statutes; and (g) a statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action that the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency’s proposed action. A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Under Sections 120.569(2)(c) and (d), F.S., a petition for administrative hearing must be dismissed by the agency if the petition does not substantially comply with the above requirements or is untimely led. This intent to issue constitutes an order of the Department. Subject to the provisions of Section 120.68(7)(a), F.S., which may require a remand for an administrative hearing, the applicant has the right to seek judicial review of the order under Section 120.68, F.S., by the ling of a notice of appeal under Section 9.110 of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in the Of ce of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by ling a copy of the notice of appeal accompanied by the applicable ling fees with the appropriate district court of appeal. The notice of appeal must be led within 30 days from the date when the order is led with the Clerk of the Department. The applicant, or any party within the meaning of Section 373.114(1)(a) or Section 373.4275, F.S., may also seek appellate review of the order before the Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission under Section 373.114(1) or Section 373.4275, F.S. Requests for review before the Land and Water Adjudicatory Commission must be led with the Secretary of the Commission and served on the Department within 20 days from the date when the order is led with the Clerk of the Department.

By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County Democrat Glades County Historical Society (GCHS) is alive and well? Where are all those wonderful inquisitive lovers of history, restoration and reconstruction? Current members of this nearly 20-year-old venerable organization are in need of helpers, idealists, dreamers and doers. Speaking for the founding members including myself, when we started the City of Moore Haven nanced a lengthy historical survey that cost taxpayers approximately $28,000. The results told us we have 41 buildings eligible for historic designation. This meant that they would not be eligible for that bronze plaque to be awarded and bolted to the residence or commercial building, but after any of these buildings w ere restored, the plaque and a discount of property taxes would be awarded to the owners. Restoration to the exterior of the house or business structure had to adhere to strict regulations set by the Florida Department of State's historic regulation section. The interior had to be restored as much as safely possible with all the newer rules such as commercial re systems and handicap ramps. Individuals who owned any of these buildings would be eligible for speci ed tax breaks for over ve years. Much of this happened to the Pieter W estergaard House at 270 Ave. L, donated by the G. P sterer family to the GCHS approximately 17 years ago. This shared project was nanced by dues from members, grants, donations and efforts of friends such as those enthusiastic snowbird, neighbors and coerced family members The City of Moore Haven which also jumped in with lawn services and other helpful deeds. Within the past three years we have lost a few of our most loyal and dedicated members such as Clewiston Library's John Fraser, GCHS' treasurer and computer guru, A l Schauseil, owner of Hicpochee Hunting & Fishing Lodge, and dear June Morningstar, peanut butter pie baker extraordinaire, and an overall delightful person. Her husband, Charlie Morningstar remains a loyal member. We wish newcomers to the community w ould spend time with us asking questions about restoration. We can provide paint charts showing colors used on buildings back in the early 1900s. We can advise you on the year of construction and the style of each building. To be eligible, you must restore the exterior. No aluminum carports or plastic fences allowed. The positive impact of just a restored exterior increases the real estate value of any house in a historic district. Most of those 41 eligible buildings, however, have been destroyed. Directly across from the historic Westergaard House is a restored Florida "Cracker" house. Next door on the corner is a restored "Bungalow/ Cracker" house. Speaking for myself, I have always dreamed of a historic district here on the river. And I have dreamed of our county being one of the most natural, nature-loving counties in America. Lofty goals to say the least but attainable if all worked together. Yes, we need an industrial area, and most of all we need jobs. My dreams included growth in every area. Growth worked into the historic theme, with an environmental preservation policy that would keep our waters safe and clean. Glades County is one of the few states where bears and panthers exist. Our bird and small animal population is dwindling. Just travel our highways and roads any day. The roadkill is countless. A few years ago when we were experiencing a worse-than-usual drought, I took my small outboard boat down a well-traveled canal that leads out to Lake Okeechobee. The water level was so low in this V-shaped canal allowing me to see everything on the bottom. The pile of beer cans, food tins and tangled shing line was at least three feet deep along the entire length of the canal. Although born in N. Kentucky, I have loved Glades County since my rst visit over 25 years ago. After boating all day with my husband and a local shing guide. I was in love with Nature's wondrous Lake Okeechobee. As we became friends with so many kind and generous Moore Havenites, we enjoyed it even more. Well, there she goes again. She changed from the too-long-in-of ce GCHS president to an environmentalist, probably one of those tree-huggers. Yes, that would be me along with thousands of others. I started writing this newsletter for the GCHS membership drive. Somehow I just got carried away. I know we all want a better, cleaner and healthier world for our children and grandchildren. Let's work together and make it happen. Let's save our heritage, the colorful history and stories, the old Cypress trees and those helpless critters. GCHS dues remain $15 per year. Meetings are usually held on a Friday evening at 7 p.m. We need input from everyone as to the day and time for meetings that will accommodate all. Our, aka your historic house is being used often by local non-pro t groups and private individuals. Currently Julie Wigton, Donald Miles, Jan Woolbright, and this writer do most of the house cleaning and weeding. We need more yard workers, painters for the porch, handicap ramp and front steps. A young visitor to Moore Haven, Justin Shropshire, grandson of Jan and John Shelton, spent two days weeding and laying mulch in the front lawn so the house would look presentable for Memorial Day. So, I started this missive by telling you about GCHS and I ended it after also explaining about our environmental problems. Now, have you heard of the Save Our Creeks group? Somebody stop me or I will go on and on! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 BREAKFAST START THE DAY OUT RIGHT WITH Rise and shine with school breakfast and improve your childs grades and test scores.

The existing upstream and downstream stilling wells and access platforms will be removed, and new stilling wells installed both upstream and downstream.
