Motorcyclist dies on CR 731Special to the Glades County Democrat GLADES COUNTY — A 49-year-old motorcyclist died in a crash on County Road 731 in rural Glades County Thursday morning after being struck by a buzzard. According to the Florida Highway Patrol report, Douglas James Win eld, 49, of Cape Coral, was northbound on CR 731 driving a 2013 BMW motorcycle, around 10:28 a.m. when the accident occurred. “A buzzard ew from the east shoulder directly into the path of the motorcycle and struck the operator in the helmet,” stated FHP Cpl. Andrew Close’s report. The motorcycle left the roadway onto the east shoulder and went into a ditch. The motorcycle then struck a fence and overturned. Mr. Win eld was ejected from the motorcycle and came to rest approximately 40 feet Buzzard blamed for fatal crash The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District has reduced the water discharges from Lake Okeechobee. The corps suspended water releases from the lake to the St. Lucie Estuary on Monda y Oct. 21, although runoff from the St Lucie Canal will be allowed to pass through the St. Lucie Lock as needed. The corps also adjusted the target ow from the lake to the Caloosahatchee Estuary to 650 cubic feet per second (cfs) as measured at W.P. Franklin Loc k COE reduces ows to riverSee BUZZARD — Page 11 See WATER — Page 11 By Annie ChambersU.S. Army Corps of EngineersWith their growing population, feral hogs are threatening human, animal and native species health throughout Florida. Their rooting behavior destroys habitat, kills plants and creates disturbed areas where invasive plants can easily grow. They carry diseases that can infect livestock or humans. Feral hogs are the most destructive exotic animal species found throughout Florida conservation lands, according to the Florida Invasives website. Wild hogs can grow to ve to six feet long and reach weights of more than 150 pounds. They are not native to Florida and may have been introduced by Spanish explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. They occur in all of Florida’s 67 counties within a wide variety of habitats, but prefer oak-cabbage palm hammocks, freshwater marshes and sloughs and pine atwoods, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) website. Trying to prevent wild hogs from coming onto your property is usually futile, but adequate fencing can keep them out of small yards and gardens. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District is having problems of its own with the swine. “Feral pigs cause problems at levees because they dig around them,” said Jon Lane, chief, Invasive Species Management Branch. “While the rooting doesn’t cause problems, it does allow other invasive plants to get established and disturbs the grasses we have planted there. The digging increased costs by forcing us to treat additional invasives on the levee that normally wouldn’t be there.” Feral hogs destroy habitatSee HOGS — Page 11

This year-round Florida resident species breeds in Florida mainly in the winter, but edglings have been reported between October and June. During the 2011-2016 Breeding Bird Atlas II survey, only four Great Horned Owls have been con rmed breeding in inland Florida. Volunteers are needed to report sightings in inland Florida in order to help con rm this breeding bird before the survey ends in 2016. Please send photos, location, behavior observed and date of Great Horned Owls sightings to Margaret England (mlelighthouse@embarqmail.com). The location will help determine which 11 square-mile block to use for reporting this data. The exact location can be kept con dential. Go to the Florida Ornithological Society's website for links to information about the Breeding Bird Atlas II. The Great Horned Owl, Florida's largest owl, is a erce nocturnal hunter which has been described as a "winged tiger" or a "lean mean killing machine." It is known for putting fear in birds and mammals alike because of its reputation for eating any living creature up to the size of skunks or domestic cats. It is often harassed by ocks of American Crows who will travel long distances to mob a Great Horned Owl and yell at them for hours. They utilize a variety of habitats, including open oak forests, open pinelands and river bottoms. At dusk, you can see them sitting on fence posts or tree limbs at the edges of open areas or ying across roads or elds with stiff, deep beats of their rounded wings. This often solitary bird has a grayish upper side and a tawny-orange face with prominent ear tufts, which are widely spaced on its head. They have large eyes and can swivel their heads more than 180 degrees to look in any direction. The oldest recorded Great Horned Owl live to be 28 years old. Its call is usually a deep muf ed stuttering series of four or ve "hooh, HOOhoo-hoo" notes. Females will answer males with a nasal barking sound, while juveniles beg with a wheezy or scratchy bark. They respond to intruders and other threats with bill-clapping, hisses, screams and guttural noises. They eventually spread their wings and strike with their feet if the threat escalates. Although they are capable of building their own nests, the Great Horned Owl will often use an abandoned nest where the female will typically incubate two white eggs for 26 to 35 days. The young will leave the nest at 35 days of age, but are dependent upon their parents for food until they are able to y at nine to 10 weeks of age. Additional information about Great Horned Owls and other bird species are available at www.allaboutbirds. com or the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation's website. Plan a birding trip using the free tools at the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail website: oridabirdingtrail.com.

My purpose in this article isn't to make a statement about how we should or shouldn't feel about Halloween, rather to encourage us all to nd "common ground" with unbelievers and use Oct. 31 as a way to help share Christ. God calls us to be faithful and to make a difference. We don't have to do great things. Little things we do can make a big impact. There are times in our lives when we have opportunities to reach out and touch people in a special way. Halloween can be one such opportunity. One of the biggest problems we face is that Halloween today has become strongly associated with the occult and a preoccupation with evil entities two in uences that Scripture and the church have always warned against. This makes it even more important for us to shine in the midst of the darkness that surrounds us. There was a man in the neighborhood where I grew up who made snow cones every Halloween for all of us trick-or-treaters. I remember him. More than that, I remember how special he made each of us feel. It inspired within me a desire to one day, if at all possible, to do what he did -to make and hand out snow cones on Halloween, to make good memories by touching the hearts of children and youth in special ways. (God has blessed me to be able to do this, and I will be handing out snow cones on Oct. 31 at First United Methodist Church of Clewiston from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at our Light the Night for Jesus Halloween alternative. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood!) As kids come to your door, let them see His light in you. Don't give in to the world, but be in the world with the Christ light shining through you. Don't hide it under a bushel, but hold it up to the world as a living witness for our living God. It is the combined wattage of many lights, each shining in its own place, but for a common purpose that illuminates a city in the midst of the darkness of night. Someone shared that being a Christian is like being a pumpkin, "God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off of you. Then, He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for the entire world to see." RELIGION NEWS AND INFORMATION

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 24, 2013 To boost the nation’s ability to manufacture in uenza vaccine quickly in a pandemic, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HSS) established a ll and nish manufacturing network, which will cover the nal steps in the vaccine manufacturing process. Led by HHS, the network supplements the capacity that in uenza vaccine manufacturers currently have, potentially increasing national capacity to produce in uenza vaccine by 20 percent. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), in HHS’ Of ce of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, awarded contracts to four U.S. companies that will make up the network. Today’s contracts, totaling approximately $39.8 million, are awarded to Cook Pharmica of Bloomington, Ind., JHP Pharmaceuticals of Parsippany, N.J., DSM Pharmaceuticals, Inc. of Greenville, N.C., and Nanotherapeutics of Alachua, Fla. “No longer will ll and nish manufacturing be the limiting factor in making pandemic in uenza vaccines or other products available in a public health emergency,” said BARDA Director Robin Robinson, Ph.D. “The ll and nish manufacturing network will be an integral part of other national assets that address the need for timely manufacturing of medical countermeasures to respond to man-made and natural threats.” The new network responds to a recommendation proposed by the Public Health Medical Countermeasure Enterprise Review (2010) to create a network of existing, pre-quali ed facilities that could ll and nish vaccines for manufacturers in a public health emergency. As a network, these companies will collaborate with the three HHS Centers for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing, established in 2012, and with domestic in uenza vaccine manufacturers. In addition the network will provide its services to HHS for production of clinical investigational lots of medical countermeasures that are in development. Each company in the network will partner with a pandemic in uenza vaccine manufacturer to transfer the ll and nish technology into its existing facilities to provide surge capacity for pandemic response. The expanded ll and nish manufacturing network also could provide these core services for manufacturers of drugs and vaccines intended to protect public health against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats. The network builds on BARDA’s public-private partnership model to provide a coordinated national medical countermeasure manufacturing infrastructure and exempli es BARDA’s core service assistance approach towards a comprehensive, integrated plan for advanced research and development, innovation, acquisition, and manufacturing of vaccines, drugs, therapeutics, diagnostic tools and non-pharmaceutical products for public health emergency threats. These threats include chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents, pandemic in uenza and emerging infectious diseases. HHS is the principal federal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves. ASPR leads HHS in preparing the nation to respond to and recover from adverse health effects of emergencies, supporting communities’ ability to withstand adversity, strengthening health and response systems, and enhancing national health security.

A-1: How it Works With the capacity to hold 60,000 acre-feet of water at a site west of U.S. 27, the A-1 Flow Equalization Basin (FEB) is designed to capture and store peak stormwater ows during the wet season or heavy rainfall events. Along with providing signi cant storage, emergent vegetation, such as bulrush and cattail planted within the site, will help reduce the concentration of phosphorus in the water. Location A system of 21 miles of earthen levees and 15 water control structures will allow water managers to move water south for treatment. This provides the steady ow necessary to optimize the performance of Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) 2 and 3/4 just to the south at the Palm Beach/Broward county line. Stormwater Treatment Areas are constructed wetlands that serve as the water-cleaning workhorses of Everglades restoration, using both emergent and submerged aquatic vegetation, such as hydrilla, to naturally remove nutrients from the water that eventually ows to Everglades National Park. The District operates a network of ve STAs south of Lake Okeechobee with an effective treatment area of 57,000 acres. Since 1994, the treatment areas have retained more than 1,707 metric tons of total phosphorus that would have otherwise entered the Everglades. The A-1 FEB will utilize signi cant work already completed at the site for a reservoir originally planned to provide deep water storage, known as the EAA Reservoir. All of the material excavated for the reservoir will be utilized to build new levees, and existing canals have been incorporated into the new plan. Restoration Strategies In June 2012, the state of Florida and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reached a consensus on new strategies for improving water quality in America’s Everglades. Based on months of scienti c and technical discussions, these strategies will expand water quality improvement projects to achieve the ultra-low phosphorus water quality standard established for the Everglades. The following are some of the key features of the plan: Design and construction of 110,000 acre-feet of additional storage adjacent to existing Everglades STAs, which will better control water ow into the treatment wetlands, thereby improving their performance. These storage areas, known as Flow Equalization Basins, will be designed to assist all ve Everglades STAs. Design and construction of the Stormwater Treatment Area 1 West expansion, increasing by 50 percent the treatment capacity of water quality facilities currently discharging into the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Additional sub-regional source controls in areas of the eastern EAA where phosphorus levels in runoff have been historically higher, building on the District’s existing Best Management Practices (BMPs) Regulatory Program. Construction on Project to Improve EvergladesA-1 shallow-water reservoir is second major effort underway in Governor’s Restoration Strategies plan

Col. Thomas Greco, deputy district commander for south Florida. “We did the best we could to keep the corps-managed campgrounds and recreation areas open to the public for as long as possible. It was unfortunate that we had to close the parks due to a lapse in federal appropriations and we are glad to be back in operation,” said Adam Tarplee, the acting assistant chief of the South Florida Operations Of ce in Clewiston. “The corps regrets the inconvenience and impact the closure had on the many customers who have been looking forward to visiting the district’s parks, and our hard-working park attendants and volunteers too.” All of the campgrounds along the Okeechobee Waterway have reopened, including St. Lucie South Campground in Stuart, 772-287-1382, Ortona South Campground near Moore Haven, 863-675-8400 and W.P.

The 2013-2014 Music in the Park Concert series kicks off with Longshot on Oct. 19, with a lineup of classic country, modern country with a “rockin” edge, and originals by guitarist Lee Allcorn. On Nov. 16, GrooVus will pull out the saxes and rev up the stage with their eclectic blend of high energy jazz and rock hits from the past 50 years. Concert goers can relive high school days from the 1950s and 60s w ith Lotela Gold on Jan. 18, 2014 and recall a simpler time when youth “rocked around the clock,” Elvis was King, and Sam Cooke pioneered soul music. Plan to arrive early on Feb. 22 to “get your spot” when California Toe Jam “packs the park” playing the best classic rock from the 1960s and 70s. On April 19, Rick Arnold, who wrote “Hog Wild” and other songs for Hank Williams, Jr., will blend country and oldies from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. The band Quasimojo, known for penetrating guitar, will close out the series on May 17 with 70s and 80s rock, alternative, and hard-driving blues. Concerts run from 7 to 9 p.m. on Saturday nights. Concert admission is $5 per person. A ccompanied children 12 and under are free of charge. Bring blankets, lawn chairs, and ashlights and plan to enjoy an evening of music under the stars. Food vendors will be onsite. Park entry fee of $6 per vehicle (up to 8 people) is waived after 6 p.m. on concert nights. The Friends of Highlands Hammock State Park is the nonpro t Citizen Support Organization (CSO) that works hard to support the park and promote a partnership between the community and the park. Proceeds from the concerts and other CSO sponsored events bene t park improvements. The Friends have forged a lasting partnership with the park, and a recent project proves that “public/private partnerships” pave the way for success! Relentless summer rains combined with years of heavy traf c from RV campers, county roaders and park visitors had really taken a toll on park roadways by the end of August. The crumbling edges and potholes did not escape the attention of Park Manager Steven Dale. He proposed that the park split the cost of approximately $20,000 with the Friends. Consequently, the ranger station entrance, the campground entrance, and the loop entrance between the county road turn-off and the Orange Grove were resurfaced by Highlands County Road and Bridge. Bicyclists, joggers, and campers on evening strolls to view the deer are delighted! Another project of great bene t to visitors is the phone line. Callers can now get information about the park, tram tours, recreation hall and pavilion rentals, camping, the Friends, and special events without having to speak to a ranger. Camp Host Steve Mitchell, a retired AT&T employee, installed the system this past summer. He generously donated a phone switch, the software, and other equipment valued at $10,000. During the 1930s, preservation and maintenance were a primary concern of key historical gures including the Roeblings, Alexander Blair, Allen Altvater, Richard Lieber, and others. In keeping with this same spirit of stewardship, the Friends work to advance and further preservation and maintenance. During the 2012-13 scal year, a total of $84,000 in CSO funds was used to purchase vehicles and equipment including two Kubotas, a Polaris, weed-eaters, chainsaws, brush cutters, fuel, and complete repairs essential to park operations. In early September, sculptor Frankie Flowers and his Mountain Dan Chainsa w Art team, camped in the park as volunteers with a most unique project sponsored by the Friends. They transformed two large stumps in the picnic area into a Southern black bear and a Florida panther! These two large mammals tread softly in the hammock and rangers and visitors are delighted to occasionall y catch a glimpse. These “true Americana” carvings will be of cially unveiled at the 28th Annual CCC Festival on Saturday, Nov. 9. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 24, 2013 east of the roadway.

Local runoff outside the lake into the Caloosahatchee River could cause ows to exceed this target. “Drier weather is now starting to take hold in the area,” said Lt. Col. Tom Greco, J acksonville District deputy commander for south Florida. “Our focus is now shifting tow ard retaining water in the lake to ensure a v iable supply for the approaching dry season, while still monitoring for heavy rain events that might force future adjustments in ows.” The lake level on Oct. 18 was 15.57 feet. Under the corps’ water management plan, the 2008 Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule, water management operations are structured to keep the lake at a seasonally-adjusted level between 12.5 and 15.5 feet. The corps will closely monitor conditions and adjust ows as necessary. Public safety remains the corps’ top priority.

W ATERContinued From Page 1 There are high population densities of feral hogs due to high reproductive rates, lack of signi cant natural predators and their ability to adapt to a wide variety of habitats. These swine pose a threat of disease transmission to humans, livestock and native wildlife. They are known to carry brucellosis and pseudorabies. Pseudorabies is a highly contagious herpes viral disease which occurs in swine. Once swine are infected with this virus they will remain infected for the rest of their lives. Swine infected with pseudorabies are capable of transmitting the disease to other species including cattle, sheep, goats, horses, dogs and cats. Pseudorabies infections in these secondary species are usually fatal. Wild hogs are legally de ned as wildlife and are the second-most popular, large animal hunted in Florida (second only to the white-tailed deer), according to the FWC website. The FWC outlines several hunting precautions for safe meat preparation. Although not a risk to people, the virus can be deadly to dogs that are exposed to it.

By Eric KoppSpecial to the Glades County DemocratSome experts agree that, for all their rhetoric, the state is actually doing very little to help clean the water entering Lake Okeechobee. By ignoring the Northern Everglades, which extends from the upper one-fourth of Lake Okeechobee to Orlando, these experts are claiming state agencies are doing little to help the Southern Everglades other than to spend more of the taxpayer’s money. “I don’t think there is a policy any more in the state of Florida. I think everything is being controlled by special interests and no environmental goal is being pursued,” said Monica Reimer, an environmental attorney with Earthjustice in Tallahassee. Mrs. Reimer has participated in a number of federal and state trials, including her win in a local trial that kept Lykes Brothers from fencing off Fisheating Creek and barring public access to the waterway. Lake Okeechobee was battered by hurricanes in 2004 and 2005, and it is now being attacked by people on both coasts of the state w ho claim water being released from the lake to the estuaries is “polluted” and is causing “toxic algae blooms.” While Mrs. Reimer and noted limnologist Dr. Dan Can eld agree the lake plays a part in those algae blooms, there is a bigger factor to consider: little is being done to clean the water owing into the north end of the lake. Dr. Can eld said in a telephone interview from his of ce at the University of Florida that the nutrient-rich waters of Lake Okeechobee aren’t causing algae blooms along the east coast of the state. When asked if those blooms are the result of polluted lake water, Dr. Caneld was quick to reply “no.” “Pollution is a human de nition, and it’s a false use of the word,” he said. “It’s the fresh w ater that’s causing the problem. The water is not high enough in salinity.” But, Mrs. Reimer argued that the high phosphorus content of the lake water is a factor. “You have to have the nutrients — they are a critical piece of having an algae bloom. The more nitrogen and phosphorus, the more likely you are to have an algae bloom,” she said.Lowering nutrient levelsWhile the SFWMD continues to tout the effectiveness of dispersed storage areas, where rain water is held on privately-owned property for a period of time then released, neither Dr. Can eld nor Mrs. Reimer are big proponents of these areas. “I think it’s a lot of expense for an untested nothing,” said Mrs. Reimer, adding that all these areas really do is “give farmers a lot of money.” Dr. Can eld said he thought these areas are ne — when there’s a lot of rain. “The district (SFWMD) pays a lot of money to keep water up north and as long as the rain is not too bad, or too little, it looks OK. But it does very little, in my mind,” he said. Water managers pay area farmers up to $150 per acre to use their property for dispersed storage. The problem with this idea is these areas only work when it rains, but the landowner is paid whether they are storing water on their land or not. When there is no water on the land, livestock is allowed to live and graze on it. As for load reduction facilities, Dr. Can eld feels these area are excellent for removing nitrogen from the water but they don’t do that much for reducing phosphorus. He said while the plants take up the phosphorus from the water, it’s only for a short period of time. “The plants die back, regurgitate and put it (phosphorus) back into the water,” he said. A 2005 letter from Ruth Clements, the former head of the SFWMD real estate division, to Keith Fountain of the Nature Conservancy discusses the need for a 16,000-acre Stormwater Treatment Area (STA) in northeastern Glades County that would extend from the Harney Pond Canal to the Kissimmee River. This basin, she continues, “... has the largest phosphorus load reduction target in the watershed (60 metric tons must be captured in the STA).” Dr. Can eld pointed out that high phosphorus levels in the Harney Pond are due to phosphate deposits. “When they dug canals, they put all that stuff up and it leaches back into the water,” he explained. Ms. Clements further states in that letter: “Preliminary plans indicate that total phosphorus concentrations would be reduced from roughly 300 to 400 parts per billion, to 30 to 40 parts per billion in transit through the STA.” But instead of following through with this plan to construct a STA, the district chose to lease over 4,700 acres of this property, formerly known as the PomCor property, to a local cattle concern. That lease was recently renewed for another 15 years. According to gures released by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) in their Lake Okeechobee Basin Management Plan (BMAP), the total phosphorus load in the Indian Prairie area is the highest around the lake. DEP’s gures show those total phosphorus loads from 2001 until 2013 to be 97 metric tons. The next highest area is Taylor Creek/ Nubbin Slough at 92 metric tons. (Editor’s Note: Please see the accompanying chart for more.)Land surplusingBut instead of taking the suggestions of Ms. Clements to heart, water managers are, instead, planning to surplus some of their land north of the lake then sell it. “If the surplus parcels in question are isolated and not contiguous, then I can understand selling (them) off in order to procure land actually in the public interest,” said Florida State Senator Denise Grimsley (R-Dist. 21), whose district includes some of the property to be surplused. “That said, I would challenge SFWMD to keep and use funds derived from surplus sales in the Northern basin, to accomplish long-standing goals like water storage and treatment before it reaches Lake Okeechobee.” She went on to point out that the state has come a long way with best management practices (BMPs) and important funding initiatives since 2000. “Not to mention, the two meaningful pieces of legislation that put a spotlight on Lake Okeechobee. But, we need to challenge the mind-set that Lake Okeechobee is either a water storage unit for South Florida or a big holding pond,” she stated in an e-mail response to questions from this newspaper. “Lake Okeechobee is a critical natural resource and vital to the economic livelihood of many.” State Representative for this area, Dr. Cary Pigman (R-Dist.55), said he is looking for science-based and data-driven solutions, and those solutions must respect all ecosystems and the concerns of all the people. “These solutions will require many interventions including agriculture and urban BMPs, re-establishing normal Everglades headwaters ow patterns, aquifer storage and recovery and dispersed water management practices,” he continued. “These efforts placed north of Lake Okeechobee along (the) Kissimmee River, Taylor Creek and Fisheating Creek will bene t the lake and all ows southward. While the lake may be more phosphorus sensitive and the estuaries may be more nitrogen sensitive, all areas need assistance and all efforts will help achieve an improved and ample water supply to southern Florida.” He also pointed out that projects along the C44 and C43 waterways will improve the Indian River and Caloosahatchee River estuaries, respectively. When asked about BMPs, Mrs. Reimer said trend analysis has shown that nothing was really happening, in regard to lower phosphorus levels before that water reaches Lake Okeechobee. “In fact, in some places it was getting worse. That tells me the BMP process isn’t going to be a solution in the Northern Everglades,” she said. She went on to say the increasing population in Orlando, septic tanks and the use of fertilizer on improved pastures are three of the big problems north of the lake. And, in her mind, the district’s plan to surplus and sell land is wrong. “If you bought it, there apparently was a reason why you bought it,” she said.What’s the answer?Dr. Can eld said while the district has established daily phosphorus loads for areas around Lake Okeechobee, those numbers aren’t realistic. “Now they have x-amount of time to reach that, but it’s so long that you and I will be dead. They’ll never reach it. They just put numbers out to placate everyone,” he said. “There’s no easy answer. But, if you’ll follo w the money you’ll get the answer.” Which, says Mrs. Reimer, leads one right back to the SFWMD and big agriculture. She said although it may be a “pie in the sky” idea, agriculture needs to be regulated. But, she added, that’s a story no one wants to talk about today. “We need to get the ag community on board where, if stuff is coming of f your property then you’re responsible for it,” she said. “We need to get to that point as a country as a whole, not just in Florida.” She went on to say large farming concerns have come to rely on funds from the federal government, and they know how to get those funds really well. “They’re all coming up with schemes to get money from the federal government. And, they certainly know how to pla y the South Florida Water Management District,” Mrs. Reimer added. To her, when water management districts were rst created they had local people appointed to the board and that’s when the y got more things accomplished. “We need to change the entire makeup of the SFWMD. It makes perfect sense to have local people appointed to the board. It doesn’t make sense when you have major land owners (on the board) who can bene t from the policies o f the district,” she said. “We have kind of strange ethics in the state of Florida.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 701 S Francisco St in Clewiston9 am to dusk daily € For Info: 800-269-4583 € www.rvshowusa.com Hendry County FairgroundsThur-Sun € October 24-27 € 9a-dusk dailyBlow-Outin Clewiston PLUS. . a huge selection of certi“ ed pre-owned RVs from Fleetwood, Monaco, Winnebago, Allegro & more!
