Glades and Highlands counties are home to about 175 bearsIn fall, the world is an all-youcan-eat buffet for Florida black bears. Programmed to pack in extra calories before winter, bears can smell food a mile away and will eat almost anything. Bears may decide an over owing trash can is easier pickings than searching for acorns and berries. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) reminds the public this is a critical time of year to properly store garbage, pet food and birdseed to keep bears out of places where people live and work. During the fall, bears with big appetites are less likely to linger in neighborhoods if people don’t give them access to food. According to FWC estimates, about 3,000 wild bears live in Florida, including about 175 in Highlands and Glades counties. “People can prevent problems with Florida black bears by safely FWC asks public to share bear sightings See BEARS — Page 14

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) approved the acquisition from Palm Beach County of a key piece of property that will help provide vital freshwater ows to the federally designated "Wild and Scenic" Loxahatchee River. Located on 1,800 acres west of the Beeline Highway, the Mecca Farms parcel will become a shallow-water storage area capable of sending water directly to the unique riverine ecosystem of mangroves, cypress trees, oysters and seagrasses teeming with life. "Freshwater ows are the lifeblood of this extraordinary river," said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory. "By working with Palm Beach County, we have secured a long-term source of water that will help ensure the future health of the wild and scenic Loxahatchee." Signi cant components of the plan include: a $26 million investment from the Save Our Everglades Trust Fund for the District to purchase the property; conveyance of 150 acres of the property to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) for an Olympicquality, state-owned shooting range to provide a public recreation bene t; and an option for the county to repurchase approximately 98.56 acres as needed for a new extension alignment of Seminole-Pratt and Whitney Road Mecca Farms Parcel Map 1402. Project Detail and Ecological Bene ts Following a closing on the property, the District will begin work to design and construct a system of pump stations to move water onto the site and earthen embankments capable of holding water up to four feet deep, providing 7,200 acre-feet of storage. Control structures will allow for the gravity ow of water east through the C-18 Canal and into the Northwest Fork of the river. This ow will provide signi cant environmental bene ts, including supplementing water ow to the river during the dry season to meet its minimum ows and levels, which are de ned as the minimum water levels and/or ows required to prevent signi cant harm to the water resources; helping to prevent saltwater intrusion in the lower reaches of the Loxahatchee, which keeps mangroves from encroaching on the cypress slough portion of the river; and repurposing the L-8 Reservoir, originally slated to provide water for the Loxahatchee, to serve as a key component of the Governor's Restoration Strategies plan to improve water quality in the Everglades. Loxahatchee History On May 17, 1985, 7.6 miles of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River were designated as a national Wild and Scenic River. Under the National Wild and Scenic River Act of 1968, free- owing rivers with outstanding scenic, recreational, sh and wildlife, historic and cultural values are designated for preservation for the enjoyment and bene t of present and future generations. The Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Martin County was the rst river in Florida to receive such a designation. Since 1985, the SFWMD has acquired more than 20,000 acres of land in the river corridor and tributary watersheds for preservation and restoration. Through the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative, numerous agencies and local governments have worked together on 65 habitat and water quality restoration projects, most of which have been completed. Nearly $18 million in legislative appropriations have been matched by more than $23 million in local funds to accomplish this work. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 SFWMD Approves Acquisition to Restore LoxahatcheeMecca Farms property provides a direct source of fresh water for the river The Clewiston Sugar Festival is starting a little early this year in planning and organizing for the 2014 event. As its rst fund-raising event of the year, the Sugar Festival Committee will hold the Sugar Festival Kickoff event on Nov. 16 at the John Boy Auditorium in Clewiston. The SF Kickoff event is meant to help begin raising some of the funds needed to contract the main stage entertainment, as well as other SF events that are being planned now for April 2014. The SF Kickoff is set for Nov. 16 beginning at 6 p.m. at the John Boy Auditorium. Planned that night are steak dinners and cocktails provided by the Clewiston Elks Lodge, raf e items, and a dance with music by the popular local band Downtime. "We are looking for the help and support of our local citizens and businesses for this Kickoff event," said Sugar Festival Committee Chairman Pam Kelley. "We are selling tickets to this event now at $40 per person or $75 per couple. We are also hoping our local businesses can help us with donation items to raf e. We have some great raf e items already and even some surprises for the night. It's going to be a very fun event." Chairman Kelley said it takes a lot of funding to put on a quality show each year that is meant to entertain not only our local community and their family members who come each year to visit, but also to draw visitors from the area into Clewiston. Direct Industrial Products is sponsoring the SF Kickoff to help the Sugar Festival get started in raising funds for this year. Those who cannot attend the event can still purchase raf e and 50/50 tickets, as they will be sold in advance and one does not have to be present to win. For SF Kickoff event tickets, raf e tickets and/or 50/50 tickets, please call 863-9837979 or 863-447-3901. Other ways to help: Save the date for April 12, 2014 for the Sugar Festival; "like" the Sugar Festival Facebook page or consider a sponsorship of the 2014 Sugar Festival. "I am always pleased to call Clewiston and Hendry County home because of how we always pull together as a community for the Sugar Festival, both in planning and attending the event," said Chairman Kelley. 2014 Clewiston Sugar Festival Starts With Nov. 16 Fund-Raising EventSUBMITTED PHOTO

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Tufted Titmouse is a common breeding bird found in eastern Mexico, north to Nebraska and the Great Lakes, and throughout the eastern United States from Maine to Florida. This resident species is a familiar bird at bird feeders throughout the Panhandle and much of the Florida peninsula. They are frequently reported in Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties. Tufted Titmice are smaller than Northern Cardinals, but they appear larger than other small songbirds at a feeder because of their large head and eye, thick neck and full bodies. Their bushy pointed crest and stout bill help identify Titmice even in silhouette. The black patch just above the bill makes this bird look snub-nosed. They have soft silvery plumage above, and are white below with rust or peach-colored wash down the anks. Juveniles are paler and lack the buff anks and black forehead. The oldest known Tufted Titmouse lived to be 13 years and three months old. This small bird has a nasally and mechanical call which is whistled in series of four to eight repeated notes that sound like "peter-peter-peter." They also make a harsh, fussy, scolding distress call when owls or other predators are sighted and will respond to other birds' distress calls by coming close to investigate or join a group of birds who are mobbing a predator. Tufted Titmice are found in orchards, parks and suburban areas where there is a dense canopy of trees, as well as cypress swamps, pine atwoods and hardwood hammocks. They are often seen itting from branch to branch or hanging upside down and sideways investigating cones, undersides of branches and leaf clusters. They will also hop on the ground searching for fallen seeds or insects, or visit bird feeders looking for food. When they nd large seeds, they will hold the seeds with their feet and hammer it open with their beaks. In fall and winter, they often hoard the shelled seeds in the crevices of tree bark. Their diet consists mainly of insects, seeds, nuts and berries. Titmice nest in natural tree holes, old nest cavities of other birds and natural cavities. The will also nest in arti cial structures, including fence posts, metal pipes or nest boxes. They are unable to excavate their own nest cavities. A cup-shaped nest is built inside the cavity in six to 11 days using damp leaves, moss and grasses, as well as bark strips. The nest is lined with soft materials, such as string and cotton, as well as hair, fur and wool which are sometimes plucked directly for living mammals. One brood is normally raised during the nesting season, which extends from March until June. The female lays three to six white eggs, which have nely spotted shades of brown. She incubates these eggs until they hatch in 12 to 13 days. The young edge when they are 15 to 16 days old.

BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of the early Christian writers said, “The Church can respond to anything but being ignored.” That’s been a partial experience for me. Many times, there are answers to be given that have come from knowledge or experience. Other times, the answers have come from the person himself who is asking a question. People who have consulted me about a decision to be made often have the answer within them; I am not always able to give “the answer,” but as we explore options, one will stand out. It generally proves to be the right answer for the person at that moment and I am happy to have had a part in helping them nd it. There are other times when the answers come from participating in worship or praying silently alone. I’ve had people tell me that what I said on a given Sunday morning spoke to them directly -no credit taken by me and something certainly not something I planned. That’s the way God works; we are instruments in His scheme of things and that’s enough. Other times, my answers have come through insights gained while praying about some problem for others or for myself. I hope I’ve learned not to make hasty decisions when something important is to be decided. Thinking, meditating, praying, giving myself time to follow up on the various options that present themselves have led me to not regret my choices later. Then there are those who ignore the community of the faithful. How do we respond to them? I remember the words of one leader who I met some years ago in his of ce while seeking to undertake another ministry. My calling led me to want to explore new horizons and seek something beyond what many of my colleagues were doing. I sought to see if I could minister in another language, another culture, another place than the traditional ones I had earlier anticipated to be my life’s work. As we sat in his of ce, I outlined what I was feeling called to do but worried if there might be a place for such a ministry in his area. He assured me that there was and I asked, “How do you go about it?” His answer was, “You wait until the opportunity presents itself, then move!” I re ected that is how the Church has always responded to being ignored: wait until the opportunity presents itself, then go with it. As I read the New Testament, I nd no account of Jesus telling people who come to him, “Look, I’m busy right now” or “Can you come back later?” or “That’s not my problem.” Accounts of reaching out take place; a man approaches Jesus when he comes to a crowd and asks help for his son (Matthew 16:14ff), or as He is challenged while teaching in the temple (Matthew 21;23ff, Mark 11:27ff), or while when someone is on the roadside crying to Him as he passes (Mark 10:47ff). Sometimes, His ministrations take place while visiting a town and being encountered by a leper (Luke 5:12ff), or when in the midst of teaching, a man is lowered through the roof right in front of Him (Luke 5:18ff). Jesus stopped teaching and takes time out to heal. Time after time, he responds when the opportunity presents itself. This is the example I see Him leaving for us. Those who have ignored or avoided or sidestepped for so long are nevertheless received and given aid when asking for it. The old Church leader and my potential guide was right. The English writer of long ago who said the Church could respond to anything but being ignored missed something. A continued witness, a continued presence is the answer. The moment will come if you wait for it. The Lord did not come into a world where He was warmly welcomed by all; each had to nd a moment of readiness for themselves and each was welcomed at that special time. As for our ministries together? Be ready and respond in love when the moment comes. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an e-mail to fatherthomas@saintmartins-clewiston.org. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 RABIES $10 € PARVO $12 € Half Price Boarding €For a limited timeFREE EXAMA $50 ValuePartners in the Way to Happiness Foundation and a Drug Free World.

Thomas S. Thomas With approximately 600,000 acres of land open to the public, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) joins the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in promoting opportunities to celebrate 2013 National Public Lands Day this Saturday. Camping, bird-watching, hiking, hunting and horseback riding are among the most popular activities on District-managed lands. These and other recreational opportunities throughout the District’s 16-county region can be found online at www.sfwmd.gov/recreation. The following are some of the 2013 Recreation Highlights (Fiscal Year 2012-2013). An estimated 10,000 campers utilized District-managed lands. More than 10,000 duck and 300 alligator hunters used Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach and Hendry counties. More than 1,000 equestrian enthusiasts rode through the Kissimmee area. More than 50 organized-bird watching tours with approximately 1,500 participants in Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach, Hendry and Martin counties. More than 300 students and teachers participated in educational activities at the DuPuis Management Area visitor center in Martin County. More than 600 people participated in guided nature hikes on the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) property in Lee and Collier counties. 10,000 hours were logged by volunteers serving as campground hosts, leading bird-watching tours and assisting with trail maintenance, trash cleanups and environmental education. 66 trailhead/parking areas, 50 designated camping areas, 334 miles of trails, and 238 geocaches were added/improved. Each year, the District evaluates opportunities to improve access to public land for recreation. The following are some recent additions. In a partnership with Audubon of Martin County, organized bird-watching tours have recently started at the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area. In cooperation with the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, staff opened a new 7-mile trail for hiking and bicycling connecting STA-1E and STA-1W. A new multi-use (hiking, biking, horseback riding) public trail was opened on the east side of the Loxahatchee River Management Area property.

By Anne CoffeySpecial to the Glades County DemocratIf you have a feeling that this high tech age has caused many families and neighbors to drift away from each other, guess again. Glades County Woman’s Club (GCWC) recently dedicated their 2013-2014 year book to longtime member Bobbi Brown. Described by GCWC president, Kim Clement as a role model to all, Bobbi has been a member since 1970. She wasn’t sure how many times she had been elected president but no matter. W hatever of ce she has held throughout the y ears, she gave it her all. Not only that but she has been accompanied by three generations of family members; her daughter, Kandi Snow, her granddaughter, Kacie Swafford, and her great granddaughter, Lindsey Swafford. These four women have accepted every challenge handed to them by club of cers in a variety of activities and have never complained. Club events have consisted of every known conducted or performed for any club or organized group. Here are just a few: Cooking countless luscious “covered” dishes, chairing rummage sales, selling food at the annual Christmas On the Caloosahatchee festival, (even in 45 degree weather with accompanying power outages), arts and crafts booths, river clean-up walks, the recent HiHeel-Athon, food drives at Thanksgiving and Christmas, toy collections, Chalo Nitka parades, creating hundreds of original, lovely table decorations, you name it! In 1981 club members sponsored a Junior High School St. Patrick Day’s dance and sold Letters to Santa for parents and children. That had to be a rst ever! Their 1982 raft race was a total success as was their work party when they cleaned chewing gum and rust off all their metal folding chairs. They made yellow ribbon pins in support of the troops during Desert Storm, ower and quilt shows, teacher appreciation breakfasts and style shows. We learned that Bobbi was president in 1984 when they entered the Glades County Livestock group in the “Concern for Kids” contest and won! They received an award from the General Federation of Womens’ Clubs and Healthtex, inc. One year they had a taxidermist demonstration, learning the mounting of sh. That year they also agreed to allow the Explorer Scouts to use their club house for meetings. Her continued enthusiasm for living life to the fullest is contagious. Everyone in our small community knows and loves Bobbi Brown. Her beauty is not only on the inside but she is a beautiful woman with a lovely smile, wavy, shiny hair and great taste in bright and chic clothing. If you are interested in the rest of the story, join Bobbi and these wonderful, generous women at a meeting on the second Thursday of each month. Meetings are currently held at the Doyle Conner Agriculture building. Members are gathering food items for their annual food baskets to help families at thanksgiving. Of cers for the coming year are president, Kimberly Clement, rst vice president, Dee Dee Beck, second, vice president, Sue Ilich, recording secretary, Kelly Brantley, treasurer, Bonita Drayton, and corresponding secretary, Barbara Brown. Whoa!! did we see that Bobbi Brown’s name on the roster again? You just can’t keep a good woman down! Excerpt from an old “Collect for Club Women,” by Mary Stewart, followed by GCWC members: “Keep us O god, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed, let us be done with faultnding and leave off selfseeking. “May we put away all pretense and meet each other fact to face without self-pity and without prejudice. Let us never be hasty in judgment and always generous.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 561-996-0233Open from 8-4:30 Mon-Fri € 8-12 Sat € Closed Sun Formerly Regional Metals NEW LOCATION NOW OPEN!2308 Cypress Lane Belle Glade, FLRecycling Services:• Aluminum • Appliances • Automobiles • Batteries • Brass • Copper • Cardboard • Steal • Tires • Demolition Services Locations; Main Yard 3350 Metro Pkwy, Fort Myers, FL 33916Paper Products 2998 South St. Ft.

Special to the Glades County Democrat The community is marveling at the success of the Oct. 5 Breast Cancer Awareness event, the “High Heel-A-Thon.” Glades County Woman’s Club President Kimberly Clement not only completed the High HeelA -Thon mile length course, she ran in 6-inch heels to win the highest heels in the competition. Following the ag raising ceremony, one of the local church’s choir was led by GCWC member Bonita Drayton singing two very appropriate songs to the accompaniment of everyone’s keeping time by clapping. Mary the Clown wandered around blowing bubbles, to the delight of all kids old and young. If you have never attended a Cow Chip Bingo, the suspense keeps ticket holders checking their numbers, as Daisy slows down in a square to “do her thing.” Winner, Harry Ogletree, shared his secret to winning: ”Buy a lot of tickets!” Almost as big a hit as the free bounce houses and slides, was the buggy ride pulled by a Clydesdale horse. Adults and kids alike enjoyed their trip around the Chalonitka grounds pretending they were being pulled in a wagon by the Budweiser Clydesdales. Douglas Fender (better known as Deelicious) stole the show with his rendition of Cher as he serenaded the judges. Several girls and one of the judges found him so attractive, they threw dollar bills while the judge tucked some in his gown. Dustin Chapman entertained as he boogied with another judge. As you were told last week, if you missed the $1.99 Beauty Pageant, you missed the highlight of the event! First, second and third place winners were presented w ith owers and trophies, by Kim who had remained in her high heels in spite of her blisters! The crowd was also entertained throughout the day by cloggers and a fashion show. Several breast cancer survivors told of their experiences, and urged women to be tested regularly, and to inform their doctor of any suspicious areas that they discover. Tee shirts were observed with the slogan, “Save a life, grope your wife,” and a winning bling bra had the message “Save the Girls.” Decorated pink pumpkins also carried out the A wareness theme — such as a bird sitting in a nest and sporting a sign saying “Hatching a Cure for Breast Cancer.” Winners of all the competitions were presented with trophies by GCWC. Glades County Woman’s Club is very proud of this, their initial attempt at raising funds for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Half of the money raised was presented to the Florida Breast Cancer Foundation, and the other half will go to fund the club’s various projects. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 W oman’s Club supports Breast Cancer Awareness Special to the Glades County DemocratGCWC Prez Kim Clement as she completes the mile-long course.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 Editor’s note: The following notes on the Tuesd ay, Oct. 8, Glades County Commission meeting were provided by Donna Storter-Long. Presentations / Awards 1. Waste Management [WM] Presentation – (Jeff Sabin) Following a self-audit of payable and contracts concerning Glades’ solid waste transfer station (formerly land ll), WM determined $29,237.65 w as due Glades County and Mr. Sabin presented the check to the chair. Business Agenda 5. Proclamation Declaring October 2013 as National Residents’ Rights Month – (Chairman Storter Long) Upon request from Florida’s Ombudsman Program, Board approved the proposed proclamation in honor of the rights of residents of nursing homes, and care/assisted living facilities in Florida. 6. Purchasing Policy – (Chairman Storter Long) Board adopted a resolution and formal purchasing policy with effective date Oct. 9 with revision of the V endor Performance Evaluation Report to include notice of local vendor status. 7. Cypress Knee Museum – (Chairman Storter Long) Chairman Storter addressed issues previously raised explaining that lease item 36 “Maintenance Of Improvements” clearly noted that the matter of existing graf ti on the mural at the Cypress Knee Museum w ould be addressed in the management agreement and that “regular maintenance of the property” w ould continue as the state had maintained it, with minimal costs until improvements are made. She also explained that there would be no increase in the county’s insurance premiums to prov ide liability coverage and that casualty coverage w as based on $6k per $1 million coverage, and in this case the value of the existing improvements is less than the county’s insurance threshold of $25k so until the buildings were renovated or replaced, there w ould be no additional premium. Tourism Development Council [TDC] President Hugo Geistman and TDC Secretary Chick Ghitter addressed the board in support urging the board to lease the property for future opportunities. Board moved 4-1 to proceed with the lease possibility having staff and legal counsel work with lease language, particularly Item 4, and determine presence of any possible costs. Commissioner Echols dissented. 8. MSBU for Fire Services – (Chairman Storter Long) Chairman Storter explained that an Municipal Service Bene t Unit was an assessment for a speci c bene t to property and that re suppression and prevention services bene t real property as well as people and personal property. She presented the 2004-2008 history of the board’s prior intent and ofcial actions to implement the assessment including a funding option re assessment performed by Burton and Associates that based on costs and parcel units provided by the Public Safety Department and County Property Appraiser respectively, determined rates in 2005 to be:  $38 for average home;  $22 for mobile home;  $25.61 for 1,000 square feet of nonresidential;  $9 for an acre of vacant residential;  $4.54 for an acre of vacant nonresidential;  $.035 for an acre of agricultural. Citing the fairness of equal assessment for like properties instead of ad valorem assessment based on value, Commissioners Echols and Beck voiced support of the measure noting that if the MSBU was implemented, the costs of re service would be removed from General Fund and therefore millage rates could be reduced. Board directed staff to seek bids for services to conduct a (current) study and rate determination. 9. Discuss Auditing Contract with Clifton Larson A llen, LLP (Sandra Brown). Board granted Clerk Brown’s request to extend the existing auditing contract for one two-year period as written in the contract. Commissioner Stanley led discussion about the need to RFQ auditing services on a timely basis, especially in light of the recent extra forensic accounting time required in the last audit. Echols complained about the timeliness of audit completion as it is due in June and expected for presentation in May. The motion included requirement of presentation at the 2004 May night meeting. 10. Select Three Engineering Firms for RFQ Responders – (Avant Brown). Road Superintendent/ Interim County Manager Avant Brown explained the need for selecting engineering rms to provide professional services under continuing contract, noting that he preferred a roster of only three. Board rst determined, in accordance with FS 287.055 that all ve respondents were quali ed. Chairman Storter announced her con ict of interest and abstention from voting and invited representatives of each respondent to address the board which included Jim Hull of Aim Engineering, Ryan Bell and Matt Howard of Johnson Engineering and Steve Dobbs of Steve Dobbs Engineering. Craig A. Smith & Associates and David Douglas Associates were not represented. Using a paper “ballot,” commissioners each selected their three choices in no ranking order, and the results were tallied and announced by the County Attorney. The three rms chosen were Aim Engineering, Craig A Smith & Associates, and Johnson Engineering. 11. Insulation for the courthouse – (Bob Jones). Public Safety Director / Interim County Manager Bob Jones explained the proposals received to install insulation in the attic of the oldest portion of the courthouse, noting the advantages of closed cell foam. Court Administrator Dawn Oliver addressed the board concerning existing grant funding and the Chief Circuit Judge’s “sign off” and state court approval of the renovation work proposed for the courthouse, including the insulation being considered now. Following the installation of insulation, next to be scheduled is updating electrical wiring to code and assessment, review and correction of airconditioning capacity. Ms. Oliver explained the approval of use of funding granted in 2006/2007 for records storage and 2007/2008 for courthouse renovations, noting that the expenditures approved were more general than speci c in de ning courthouse repairs and remodeling. The next item will be determining the needs of the elevator which has almost become obsolete for getting repair parts, as the elevator is required for compliance with ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) rules to provide access to the second oor. Based on Mr. Jones’ recommendation, board approved contracting with BPM Spray Foam LLC for the closed cell insulation, noting that BPM can perform the work in off hours if complaints arise concerning fumes. 12. Restoration of the 1925 Glades County Map – (Bob Jones). Mr. Jones explained that because of deterioration of a hanging wire, an old, large map of Glades County that was in the courthouse hallway was severely defaced with multiple tears and glass shard pierces when the framed map fell from the wall. Because of its historical one-of-a-kind status, board moved to have it totally restored and reframed by The Gilt Complex of FL located in Stuart, for a fee of $1,750. A temporary stop-gap protection procedure was available for $450 but would not restore the map. 13. Interview Process for County Manager Position – (Bob Jones). Board approved Mr. Jones’ proposed interview process and questions for county manager applicants. Candidates will present at a special meeting Friday, Oct. 18, at 9 a.m. 14. Disabled American Veterans Van Program (Bob Jones). Chairman Storter introduced Bob Jones as Glades County’s Veterans Service Of cer, a vacant position Mr. Jones offered to ll with no salary increase and recently attended training for certi cation, and the board approved his recommendation to contribute $1,263 to the Disabled American Veterans to support the transportation of Veterans for medical services. 15. Interlocal Agreement Between Hardee County and Glades County for Hazard Waste (Bob Jones). Board approved amendment of contract to comply with recent Dept. of Environment Protection requirements.16. Disposal of County Real Property at 1055 Riverside Drive – (Attorney Pringle). Attorney Pringle explained the available methods for disposing of surplus real property. He noted that the board had already declared the property surplus and had recently been informed that the City of Moore Haven was interested in annexing the property, as it is surrounded on three sides by city limits. Pringle mentioned options for improving the property in preparation to sell it, or possibly work with the city on a development of the property. He noted that tax certi cates had been sold on the property and if application for a tax deed was initiated, the county would need to pay the taxes and interest to continue the disposal process. It was decided at this time to leave the property as surplus and notify the city of the board’s consensus for the city to initiate annexation procedures. Other possibilities for disposal or use would be considered later. Adjoining property owner Austin Moorhouse stated his preference for the county to allow the property to be annexed by the city. Former property owner Jeff Sanford, who forfeited the property during the code enforcement lien foreclosure, asked the board to delay any action as he has hired attorney Jody Hendry who was not available to appear today; Mr. Sanford wants to pursue options for redeeming the property. Mr. Sanford stated he had maintained the property and contracted with a local vendor to mow the property and had not been noticed of the liens or procedures that led to the county’s procurement of his property. Attorney Pringle recounted the county’s efforts in this matter, outlining the legal process the county had gone thru foreclosing on the Riverside Dr. property because of code enforcement liens and stated the court had approved the county’s request for summary judgment and that proper notice had been served to Mr. Sanford and Mrs. Sanford in person, not by mail and he had spoken with Mr. Sanford about the matter during the process. 17. Glades County Ground Lease with St. Onge – (Attorney Pringle). Mr. Pringle informed the board that all modi cations to the lease to St Onge for a parcel in the county’s Industrial Park had been accepted and the board now needed to adopt a resolution to of cially approve the lease. Board complied. 18. Task Force to Review County Manager Applicants – (Chairman Storter Long). Chairman Storter stated that after being approached by the public about the county manager selection process, she would like to have the board approve the appointment of a Citizens Task Force Advisory Committee to assist the board in reviewing county manager applications, assisting in the vetting process, attending interviews, evaluating the candidates and providing the board with recommendation for action. Storter provided the commissioners with a list of concerned citizens and constitutional of cers who were willing to work for the board in this capacity of a task force advisory committee. Immediately, Commissioner Echols objected, expressing his opposition that this board would make the decisions on hiring. Chairman Storter agreed that of course this board would make the decision but she wanted input from the public to make a better selection process and decision for lling the position than was decided earlier in the year and resulted in the position being lled for only a short term. Commissioner Beck objected stating that a probation clause would be in the employment contract (which is how the employment of the last county manager was terminated in six weeks) and he felt the people expected the board to make the decision. He also inquired of counsel how to ask questions of applicants to get them to reveal any disciplinary actions or penalties in their former employment positions that were not public record. Mr. Pringle told him that guidelines for proper questioning would be provided for the interviews and that the same questions should be asked of all candidates. Commissioner Grif n stated that the board had been elected by the people to represent the public to make such decisions. Commissioner Stanley expressed consent to have the committee appointed, noting that he did not expect a decision to be made at the Oct. 18 Special Meeting. Chairman Storter stated that in view of majority opposition, she would not move for of cial action. Constitutional Of cers County Attorney Attorney Pringle noted he had three items for discussion. First was reporting on the foreclosure process for the abandoned Bell property in which the county was involved due to CDBG (Community Development Block Grant) funding, noting that a building inspection had revealed the damage from a kitchen re had not totally devalued the building. He advised the board the matter was worth pursuing, noting that $5,930 back taxes would need to be paid by the board. His second report was that the state had accepted and approved the nal version of the contract with Ajax for construction of the new EOC (Emergenc y Operations Center) and he expected nal execution of the contract documents by the end of the week. The third item he reported was the demand claim from property owner Kathy Warr that the county remove the 6100 square feet of roadway asphalt that encroached on her Riverside Drive property based on recent surveys. Lengthy discussion followed about actual ownership of the roadway along the river, assumed to be owned by the Corps of Engineers with Water Management District easements. Pringle stated Mrs. Warr had refused to grant easement but would accept a guardrail to help relieve her of liability. Hugo Geistman, owner of nearby property on Riverside Drive known as Hicpochee Lodge, told the board that during his recent renovations he had checked with the county Community Development Department about setbacks because the surveys he had showed his ownership actually included part of the paved roadway, almost to the middle of the road. Matt Howard of Johnson Engineering provided the board with the name of contact person Howard Emhke with Water Management who could assist in the mapping and easement determination. Board by consensus directed staff to place the item on the agenda of the Nov. 12 meeting and to contact Corps and Water District personnel to revie w maps and easements of record. County Manager Bob Jones covered the items in the agenda packet (ALL DOCUMENTATION IN THE BOCC AGEND A PACKET MAY BE VIEWED AT www.myglades.com under current agenda item .pdf icons) plus he reminded the board that u shots are now available for employees including commissioners. He has accepted the resignation of planning director and is pursuing avenues to ll the position. Chairman Storter reminded him that any of the three engineering rms on the recently approved roster had planning staff that could assist in the interim. Mr. Jones inquired about the board’s desire to host an annual dinner following the Dec. 10 board meeting. The item will be on the next agenda with approximate costs. Commissioner Beck suggested potluck dinner with no costs. Commissioners Items And Comments Commission Echols commented on complaints of burning violations in Buckhead Ridge and Bob Jones stated he would go by there and check it out. Commissioner Echols commented he expects to soon have an announcement about the Moore Haven Canal permitting process that would be positive news. Commissioner Beck commented on the ne job Bob Jones and Avant Brown are doing as interim county managers, that operations are going smoothly and morale is very high; he expressed disinterest in making any changes in that position at this time. Commissioner Grif n reported from a FHREDI meeting of the availability of an economic development strategy of “site selection” to assist the count y in determining start up procedures and costs for a business to site in Glades Country. Chairman Storter expressed appreciation to the board for its interest and efforts preserving aspects o f the county’s heritage in approving the map restoration and pursuit of the lease of the old Cypress Knee Museum property.

DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY FEDERAL EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY Proposed Flood Hazard Determinations for Glades County, Florida and Incorporated Areas The Department of Homeland Security’s Federal Emergency Management Agency has issued a preliminary Flood Insurance Rate Map (FIRM), and where applicable, Flood Insurance Study (FIS) report, re ecting proposed ood hazard determinations within Glades County, Florida and Incorporated Areas. These ood hazard determinations may include the addition or modi cation of Base Flood Elevations, base ood depths, Special Flood Hazard Area boundaries or zone designations, or the regulatory oodway. Technical information or comments are solicited on the proposed ood hazard determinations shown on the preliminary FIRM and/or FIS report for Glades County, Florida and Incorporated Areas.

By Patty BrantSpecial to the Glades County Democrat LABELLE — It’s very dif cult to protect w omen and children in an abusive home. It’s even harder when there is no shelter for them to escape to when they nally try to make that break. After ve years, Hendry-Glades will soon have that safe harbor again for victims of domestic violence. Recently, United Way held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new women’s shelter. Of course, for safety reasons the location is not published. The old shelter, closed in 2008. It was an old cracker house with just two bedrooms, so many local women and children had to be relocated to Fort Myers. Even when women made the dif cult decision to leave their relationship, they often ended up returning to this dysfunctional situation because they could not leave their job and didn’t want to uproot their children. The shelter can also be used for victims of human traf cking. When Arlene Betancourt of United Way heard about the building, she soon made it a point to check it out. Finding it perfect for a women’s shelter, she wasted no time in contacting Jennifer Benton, CEO of Abuse Counseling and Treatment (ACT). At the recent ribbon cutting, Hendry County Administrator Charles Chapman called the shelter a “tremendous asset” and praised the partnerships that made it possible. “When we do stuff together, unbelievably cool stuff happens,” he pointed out in his speech. He called the United Way’s partnership with the county a “key piece” for this county with “rich opportunities” to ful ll its overall mission. He compared agencies like the United Way and Salvation Army to “spark plugs” of the community that make the county run. He called upon men to focus on women and children’s opportunities and embrace them to rede ne masculinity and take responsibility for abusive situations. The shelter will be one piece in the overall structure of a program that will protect “the health, safety and welfare of our most vulnerable,” he added, noting that “abuse funnels into other problems.” “The challenge is to connect, grow and foster partnerships. Each life has an echo effect,” he said, each of us needs to “do his own part to make an impact.” For her part, Jennifer Benton CEO of ACT, who has been with the program for 17 years, noted that ACT is back in Hendry-Glades, and in a better state than when it left. Last year, ACT served 135 clients in Hendry-Glades, mostly through outreach. Of that number less than ten sought shelter from their situation because they would have had to go to Fort Myers to do so. The facility still needs some work — re sprinklers, an ADA retro t for its two bathrooms and fencing. There’s a big kitchen, ve bedrooms with 12-15 beds and the facility can have a washer/dryer. The building is in beautiful condition, has a nice reception and separate rooms for counseling. The new shelter should be ready to accept clients early next year. Besides United Way, a key partner in the project, other partner agencies including the Salvation Army, Healthy Families, SHIP and the State Attorney’s Of ce, work together on a daily basis to provide services. Many are working to make each room friendly and comfortable for families in crisis. Jennifer is credited with nding a grant to purchase the building, so ACT now actually owns this “perfect spot” to help women and children out of the cycle of domestic violence. The $239,797 grant came from the Department of Children and Families, through the Florida Coalition Against Domestic Violence. The shelter still needs money for things like furnishings and a washer/dryer. She called Arlene Betancourt a “blessing to this community.” It was Arlene who had been looking for opportunities to rent a suitable building when she heard of this existing property, and recognized this site as perfect for the purpose. “The ACT program does great things,” Arlene said, “it changes lives. It has exceptional counselors.” She proudly points out that 100 percent of the money United Way raises in HendryGlades, stays here. According to Arlene, “The power of this community can achieve anything. We get things done. When people work together, great things happen. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 proposed local bills, general presentations, and constituent issues.

MEETINGContinued From Page 1 securing garbage, putting out garbage cans the morning of pickup rather than the night before, and using bear-resistant garbage cans or dumpsters.” said David Telesco, the FWC’s bear management coordinator. Surveys of Florida communities with access to bear-resistant trash cans or dumpsters show the overwhelming majority are pleased with the results. “The FWC is committed to helping the public keep bears out of garbage and out of neighborhoods,” said Telesco. “Now, we’re asking the public to help us better understand the range of the Florida black bear in the wild.” As bears become more active in fall, more people are also going outdoors for hunting, shing, hiking, biking and wildlife v iewing. The FWC is asking the public to report their sightings of Florida black bears or their tracks to a new web page: https:// public.myfwc.com/fwri/blackbear/. Biologists are especially interested in sightings of a female bear with cubs. The bear sightings web page will help biologists update the map of where bears live in Florida. However, the web page is only for sharing bear location information. FWC regional of ces remain the places for people to call for advice on how to resolve humanbear con icts. The web page has the option for people to upload photos of bears or their tracks. But please do not approach bears to take photos of them. Black bears are generally not aggressive, but approaching them can make them defensive. Adult males typically weigh 250 to 400 pounds and can be as large as 600 pounds. Extra caution is appropriate when a mother bear and her cubs are sighted. Photos from game cameras are welcome. “We know about prime bear habitats such as the Apalachicola National Forest, Ocala National Forest and Big Cypress National Preserve. While bear subpopulations are mainly centered on large public lands, bears also occur elsewhere, and those locations have been under reported,” said FWC bear research biologist Brian Scheick. “Our bear range data is 11 years old, and we are excited about getting the public’s help in identifying all the places where bears now live in Florida. “What we learn from the new bear sightings web page will inform the FWC’s efforts to document bear distribution and help with future bear management decisions,” Scheick said. The black bear is a conservation success story in Florida, with the population growing from as few as 300 bears in the 1970s to an estimated population of more than 3,000 today.
