By Charles M. MurphyGlades County Democrat Glades County Commissioners took another step toward a re tax Tuesday as they conducted a public hearing that allows them to impose non ad valorem assessments to provide re protection Tuesday. A motion by Commissioner Dennis Grif n to expand a study to allow a tax for law enforcement was rejected due to a lack of a second on the motion. County Attorney Richard Pringle said the proposed assessment had been properly advertised and was ready for a vote. Acting County Manager Bob Jones' plan is to hire six full time remen and assign them to different stations across the county. He noted they have fewer than 40 volunteers at local re departments and many are not available during daylight hours. The county currently has two full time remen.

On “Giving Tuesday,” December 3, Carey Soud, President of First Bank and Tuesday Tritt, VP and LaBelle Area Manager of First Bank, presented a $100,000 check to the Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation during their Lights of Love Tree Lighting Ceremony, held at the Convenient Care Center in LaBelle. This generous donation represented First Bank’s ongoing support of Hendry Regional Medical Center’s mission: “To excel in quality, compassion, and innovation to make our community healthier.” First Bank has been participating in the foundation’s Annual Giving Campaign for the past ve years, providing a total of over $500,000, and earmarking their gifts for various hospital projects in Clewiston and LaBelle.

First Bank appropriately coordinated the presentation of their check in conjunction with Giving Tuesday. When asked to provide a statement regarding First Bank’s contribution, Carey Soud humbly referred to a Sir Winston Churchill quote from the Giving Tuesday website: “We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.” The Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation members wish to express their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to First Bank’s board of directors, of cers and employees for their ongoing support and giving spirits. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 12, 2013 Crossword Puzzle Giving Tuesday Helps HRMC SUBMITTED PHOTOPictured left to right are Tuesday Tritt (VP and LaBelle Area Manger of First Bank), Glenda Wilson (HRMC Foundation Director), Carey Soud (President of First Bank), R.D.

The Gift of Being YouBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchTrue relationships among people mean being who we really are. It is when we can say what is on our mind, be ourselves, act by our own principles and just be. That is the gift of real friendship -no holding back, no worries about being politically correct, no concerns about being liked. It comes in friendship and marriages. It is present in childhood before we learned to conceal true feelings and worried about saying what we thought. Jesus quotes the Psalmist when He says: “Out of the mouths of infants and children your majesty is praised above the heavens (Psalm 8:2, quoted in Matthew 21:16).” The simplicity and honesty of it all leads to great insights. Over the years, I’ve encountered people who feel that they must play a certain role to succeed and are afraid of being themselves. They were among clergy friends and acquaintances as well as lay persons. There are people who will quote scriptures or famous sayings and when asked “Do you really believe that?” come up with another answer; shifting from one role to another. All of this ultimately leads to some unhappiness and a great deal of frustration. I re ected on this topic as I read the confrontation between Jesus and some Pharisees (John 8:23ff). Jesus spoke of being the light of the world. He was challenged: “Here you are as your own witness, your testimony is not valid (v.13).” Jesus replied “My testimony is valid, for I know where I come from and where I am going.” It is evident that He realizes He is on a journey, but because He knows where He comes from and where He is going, He is secure within Himself. I’ve noticed that about people who do not adopt roles to play, speak of things they really don’t believe or try to act in a way that isn’t really them. They are consistent, the same from beginning to end and comfortable with who they are. They do not live in different “compartments” in their lives and there is oneness in them. The Lord is regarded as “Jesus Christ, the same yesterday and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8)”; this is the example He gives to us all. “Simply, let your ‘yes’ be ‘yes’ and your ‘no’ ‘no;’ anything beyond this comes from the evil one (Matthew 5:37).” Years ago, of my acquaintances was the Dean of a Nursing School. She would tell about the young ladies who had images of what it was to be a nurse, all dressed in white with a white cap and pin, and maybe a doctor in the of ng. Very early in the program there were operating rooms to be prepared, babies to be changed, helpless persons in need of intimate assistance and the glamorous role that was envisioned soon wore off. One nursing student approached me one day when she was confronted with several persons on her ward that were dying. We spoke of the original call to be the healer and comforter, beyond uniforms or perceived roles, and bringing a gift of wholeness and self to someone at a crucial moment. It was about being that part of each of us that gets us involved in the rst place, “I know where I came from and I know where I am going!” I’ve watched people in all walks of life that I’ve regarded as successful, comfortable with self and not pretending to be anything else. They’re on that journey from beginning to end and they show it in relations with others and con dent within themselves. Nobody doubts and nobody questions their authenticity. Each of us has a religious vocation too, to learn who we are and from where we came. It also points to where we are going. It also is being true to oneself, and having a valid testimony by our presence. I’ll bet you’ve seen them too. Maybe that’s our true calling: be who we are, be who God made us to be. Roles are for actors, authenticity is for God’s creatures. 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. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 12, 2013 RELIGION NEWS AND INFORMATION Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.41/g Sunday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.24/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 10.6 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 23.3 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 3.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The National Weather Service says this week begins with much of California under a ‘hard freeze warning’ and separate storm systems tracking across the Great Lakes region and from the Gulf Coast to the northeast, bringing snow, sleet and freezing rain from the Lower Mississippi River Valley northeastward to New England,’ said Gregg Laskoski, senior petroleum analyst, GasBuddy. “Under conditions like that, consumer demand usually declines and that often results in a nominal decrease in retail gas prices,” Laskoski added. “That may be what lies ahead this week.” Florida Gas Price

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonBrown Pelicans generally breed on islands along the Paci c coast from central California south to Middle and Central America and the Atlantic coast from North Carolina to the West Indies, Chile, and Venezuela. During the rst Breeding Bird Atlas surveys in 1991 three nests were discovered on Lake Okeechobee near Clewiston. Nesting in South Florida begins in the fall months. These Pelicans are the smallest of the six different species found in the world. Brown Pelicans have an awkward gait on land, but are strong swimmers and iers. They have an 84-inch wingspan and can reach a length of 48 inches. Adults are grayish-brown and have a pouched bill. During breeding season the plumage on the head and neck turns bright yellow, but fades to dull yellow and brown during non-breeding. Juveniles have almost completely brown plumage with a whitish belly and breast. The oldest known Brown Pelican lived to be 43 years old. Adults are usually silent. During wing-jerking displays, they force air from their lungs and produce a low, hoarse sound. When defending the nest Brown Pelicans will snap their bills together with a loud popping sound. Nestlings make a shrill rasping squawk when they beg for food. These seabirds spend most of their lives on or near the ocean where they usually forage during the day, but will also feed at night during a full moon. They will work in ocks to corral their prey or dive head rst into the water from heights up to 65 feet in order to scoop up sh near the water's surface. Brown Pelicans scavenge dead animals; eat invertebrates including prawns, and steal food from other seabirds. Before swallowing their food they drain the water from their pouches while gulls and terns often try to take sh out of the Pelican's beak. Brown Pelicans are highly social birds who will nest in colonies of several thousand pairs. The male selects a nest site on the ground or exposed tree top where he performs a head-swaying display in order to attract a mate. The nest site can range from a depression on the ground lined with grass, sticks and seaweed to well-built platform in a tree. The female builds the nest in 7 to 10 days while the male gathers smaller sticks for her. Two to three white eggs are laid which are incubated by both parents with their feet for about 30 days. Pelicans regurgitate predigested sh for the young birds and feed them whole sh when the young are older. The edglings can y and fend from themselves when they are three months old. You are invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for free birding trips to Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA5) located 20 miles south of Clewiston on Saturday December 14 and December 28.

On Nov. 14, the trustees and staff members of the Southwest Florida Community Foundation hosted an “Evening of Gratitude” event at the Hilliard Ranch and Cottage in Clewiston.

He has played at Carnegie Hall and the Lincoln Center in New York, as well as many other venues throughout the United States. “The entertainment was absolutely phenomenal,” said Arlene Bettencourt, president of the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle and the manager of the United Way of ce in Hendry and Glades counties.The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has been supporting the communities of Lee, Charlotte, Collier, Glades and Hendry counties through endowed funds since 1976. Most recently, they awarded $50,000 to the Hendry County Library System. With the help of generous Southwest Floridians, they assist with needs in the community through grants made to other local nonpro t organizations. The Southwest Florida Community Foundation has provided more than $56 million in grants and scholarships to the communities it serves. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Fish Busters’ BulletinBy Bob WattendorfFWC Saturday, Dec. 28, is designated as a license-free freshwater shing day. In 2013, the legislature authorized the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to offer four additional license-free shing days annually. FWC Commissioners subsequently implemented a long-term strategy to encourage introducing new anglers to recreational shing, and to give those who haven't been shing recently another incentive to enjoy time on the water. Since the dates for some of these long-term options had already passed in 2013, they also picked the one-time-only dates to make sure anglers got all the free-days the legislature authorized. For 2014 and beyond, the eight days will fall on the same weekend days from year to y ear, allowing anglers to plan in advance and businesses and nonpro t groups to schedule events around these shing license holidays. Recurring days for freshwater will be the rst Saturday and Sunday in April and the second Saturday and Sunday in June. For saltwater, the dates will be the rst Saturday and Sunday in June, the rst Saturday in September, and the Saturday following Thanksgiving. These dates were planned around holiday weekends and events, such as National Fishing and Boating Week (www.TakeMeFishing.org/NFBW), which gets signi cant media coverage by promoting boating and shing nationwide. The website is available to cross-promote local shing or boating events as well. In addition, VISIT FLORIDA, which promotes Florida as the "Fishing Capital of the W orld" (www.FishingCapital.org), designates June as Fishing Month. April is among the best freshwater shing months and the weather tends to be comfortable. It is a great time to host educational and outreach events that promote recreational shing and conservation stewardship. Florida's license-free shing days are the perfect opportunity for people to try, or introduce a friend to, some of the nest shing in the world. Florida's recreational freshwater and saltwater shing industry has an $8.9 billion economic impact and supports nearly 80,000 jobs. Events like these help grow the industry even more. Businesses with shing ties such as outdoor retailers, shing guides, marinas and out tters; nonpro ts that work with youth and conservation groups; and local governments promoting shing in local waters will all bene t. The FWC encourages them to sponsor events on these free days. To learn more about promoting your freshwater shing events, contact Bob Wattendorf (Bob. Wattendorf@MyFWC.com). A great way to cross-promote is to encourage anglers to participate in angler recognition programs. For freshwater programs, go to TrophyCatchFlorida.com and register. Registering enters the angler into an October 2014 drawing for a Phoenix bass boat powered by Mercury. Anglers may submit photos of their catches for recognition. Big Catch certi cates are available to those who post a photo of any of 33 different freshwater shes that simply exceed a speci ed quality length or weight standard (see website for details). There are special certi cates for youth who catch slightly smaller sh to encourage them. For a cionados, there are Master, Elite and Specialist certi cates, or Slams for catching a variety of sh within a speci ed time frame. However, the big prizes are reserved for anglers who catch, document and release largemouth bass over 8 pounds. To join the TrophyCatch clubs and claim prizes, anglers should photograph the entire sh (head to tail) on a scale with the weight legible, then release the bass and post the photo and information on the website. Not only do anglers acquire bragging rights and prizes, but they help conserve the resource by recycling these older trophy bass. Documenting these catches helps the FWC re ne management strategies for trophy bass and provides support for promoting Florida as the premier bass- shing destination. Prizes start with a $50 Bass Pro Shops gift card and Bass King custom T-shirt, and go up from there. For bass over 13 pounds that are properly documented and released, the prize package is worth over $1,000. Registration is free, and claiming your bragging rights is fun with either of these great programs. Plan your shing experience today, but don't forget to check the rules at MyFWC. com/Fishing. Regulations such as seasons, size limits and bag limits still apply, even on license-free days or if you are exempt from a license. Meanwhile, if you can't wait for a license-free day or decide shing is for you, licenses are affordable. An annual resident license is just $17 for either freshwater or saltwater shing, and a combination to do both is $32.50. Since a typical angler shes an average of 17 days per year and more than four hours per trip, that comes out to about a quarter per hour for healthy fun and doesn't even include the value of any sh you take home, or rewards you earn. By John Crabtree, johnc@cfra. org, Center for Rural AffairsSpecial to the Glades County Democrat The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) has opened the Conserv ation Stewardship Program (CSP) for new enrollments in 2014. From Dec. 2 through J an. 17, 2014, farmers, ranchers and foresters interested in participating in the program can submit applications to NRCS. The CSP rewards farmers, ranchers, and foresters for maintaining existing conservation practices and adopting additional practices on cropland, grassland, non-industrial private forestland and tribal lands. The program helps producers foster clean water, better soil management, improved habitat, energy ef ciency, and provide other natural resource bene ts. The CSP is a continuous sign-up program that has periodic cut-off dates for ranking applications. Jan. 17, 2014 is the deadline for the coming year. Applications can be led at your local NRCS of ce. The Center for Rural Affairs also encourages potential applicants to call the Center's Farm Bill Helpline to learn more about the application process and help uncover and overcome barriers encountered during the sign-up by calling 402-687-2100 or emailing Traci Bruckner at tracib@cfra.org. By 2013 CSP reached over 60 million acres enrolled nationally. CSP is one of the most popular and effective conservation programs, and many will apply, which is why the Center for Rural Affairs has fought so hard to protect threats to this funding in the current farm bill and appropriations debates in Congress. Producers interested in applying should contact the Center for Rural Affairs helpline and their local NRCS of ce as soon as possible to meet the deadline.

1 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions December 2013 South Florida has its own special Christmas traditionsChristmas in the Sunshine State includes some warm weather takes on traditional holiday fun. Instead of building snowmen, we build sand castles. While Santa Claus may arrive by sleigh up north, in Florida he is more likely to travel by boat, motorcycle or perhaps on a re truck. If holiday events include snow, it is trucked in for the occasion — a special treat for those born in Florida who think “cold” means the temperature dropped below 70 degrees. Some events use fake snow, others bring in the cold stu .Holiday parades on the waterChristmas parades are popular in South Florida and some of the favorites are the lighted holiday boat parades. The Okeechobee Yachette Club will hold its 30th annual Christmas Boat Parade on Saturday, Dec. 14 on the Taylor Creek w aterway in Okeechobee.

PUBLIC HEARINGS 2. Public Hearing on Non-Ad Valorem Assessments for Fire Protection Services – (County Attorney) Board adopted a Resolution that will allow the assessment of a Municipal Services Bene t Unit [MSBU] to fund the county’s re protection serv ices. A study is underway to consider the costs of providing services with determination to be made of the fair share cost per unit. The Board will not decide whether or not to impose the MSBU until all the costs are known as well as the determination of anticipated ad valorem tax revenue at budget workshop sessions in July. Commissioner Grif n had requested the Board to amend the agenda to consider having the study include costs for providing law enforcement services, but the motion died. BUSINESS AGENDA 4.

Road Sup’t Brown said he is already working with District 1 FDOT staff to include the sidew alks in their work plan. 8. Enterprise Zone Boundary Amendment – (Tracy Whirls) Board adopted the boundary amendment resolution and approved the map depicting the addition of three more square miles of Enterprise Zone in Glades County, making a total of 23 square miles now in the EZ. Commissioner Grif n inquired about including the areas adjacent to the railroad and was told that the map was advertised as recommended by the Enterprise Zone Development Agency and since the amendment must be adopted before December 31, there is not time to make any other changes which would have to be advertised. Commissioner Stanley suggested the EZDA should have made the Board aware of proposed amendments before advertising and should do so when amendments are planned again. 9. Professional Services Agreement – (Chairman Storter) Chairman Storter explained that after the Board selected three engineering rms by RFQ [Request for Quali cations) process to provide continuing professional services to the county, she requested the principals of the three rms to collaborate and prepare an agreement all would be amenable to executing.

Smith & Associates, and Johnson Engineering participated with the coordination efforts of Missie Barletto of Aim and Chairman Storter explained she had submitted the proposed agreement to the county’s insurance provider World Risk Management for review and to Attorney Pringle to consider legal suf ciency.

Chairman Storter abstained from voting on the agreement with Johnson Engineering. 10. Extension of Suspension of Collection of Impact Fees (Chairman Storter) Chairman Storter stated that the suspension of collecting impact fees would expire in February 2-14 and she said the Board needs to consider if they want to allow the suspension to consider. She said that anticipated growth from industrial development will create impacts on county infrastructure and with tax abatement options now in place, growth would produce limited revenue increases. Attorney Pringle stated that if the suspension did not continue, the collection of impact fees would resume and a new study may be required to determine appropriate fees. Board moved to advertise notice to hold four public hearings to adopt ordinances to continue suspension of the impact fees. Chairman Storter dissented. 11. Agreement with Ajax Building Corporation-Construction of Emergency Operations Center (EOC) – (County Attorney) Board moved to continue this agenda item until 1PM. 12.December 2013 Board of County Commissioners Night Meeting (Chairman) At Chairman’s request, Board moved to hold the December night meeting on December 23rd at 6PM and to authorize the chairman to cancel the meeting if business agenda items were not required to be considered before the end of the year. Board also authorized Chairman to sign county documents requiring execution before year end. COUNTY ATTORNEY Attorney Richard Pringle informed/updated the Board on several items: 1. The Local Planning Agency has two planning/zoning cases coming up on its January agenda and Pringle is working with Community Development Of ce Manager Jenny Allen and certi ed planner Alexis Crespo on the applications and staff reports. 2. Research on the alleged encroachment of Riverside Drive pavement on private property owned by Kathy Warr has continued with review of deeds of easement and also consideration was given to FS 95.361 concerning roads constructed by the county are presumed to be dedicated if such road has been continuously maintained for four years by the county even if no conveyance of right-of-way has been granted by owner. If the road was constructed by a non-governmental agency, then the four years requirement would be seven years. Pringle is working with Road Sup’t Brown to determine which entity constructed the road and when and how long the county has maintained the right of way. The item will be on a future agenda. 3. Pringle stated that at 3PM he would be attending court representing the county in foreclosure action sought against SHIP funding recipient Mary Nason. 4. Pringle noted that concerning other special assessment subjects re Agenda Item 1 above, if the resolution is not adopted, special consideration may be granted by the Tax Collector and Property Appraiser upon request. Board directed staff to determine cost of study now being performed by Governmental Services Group [GSG] to include MSBU assessment for law enforcement while GSG is doing the MSBU study for re protection services.5. Pringle will be meeting today with Commissioner Grif n concerning a noise control ordinance. 6. Pringle has reviewed and provided draft revisions to the contract with DEP to lease the Cypress Knee Museum and will confer with Chairman Storter after reviewing her response and comments. 7. Pringle will also discuss with Commissioner Grif n the steps to assess and collect business taxes, formerly known as “occupational licenses”. 8. Pringle has informed American Earth Movers [AEM] that the request for nal payment on the Harney Pond Canal dredging project must include documents certifying completion. Pringle stated costs incurred by the county to enforce the contract will be deducted from nal payment, as will liquidated damages in the amount of $500 per day imposed when the contract was not completed on time. Avant Brown had inquired if there any more unpaid sub-contractors and Pringle will require all documentation of waiver of liens when AEM les billing documentation. Chairman Storter reminded Mr. Pringle that four weeks ago when he met with her, Bob Jones and Avant Brown, he had agreed to provide a list of the services he provides covered by his annual retainer fee of $62,340 stating that payments in the amount (total) of $154,277 had been paid to Mr. Pringle this past scal year and the budgeted amount was only $132,326. Storter stated it was agreed that last ( scal) year was unusual in the number and scope of items requiring legal services, and that Mr. Pringle was not contracted with the county but was charging a discounted rate of $205 per hour for items he considered to not be included in the retainer. Mr. Pringle stated he had worked on the retainer list but was not complete, and reiterated that when he took the job, he agreed to provide the same services provided by his predecessor Mike Rider, who worked strictly on retainer but provided no litigation services nor legal consulting for the Local Planning Agency and did no legal work on Land Development Regulations. He stated he did provide those services and billed accordingly. Chairman Storter told the Board it had been several years since the Board had gone out for RFP for professional legal services and the Board may want to consider that after reviewing Mr. Pringle’s list of services covered by the retainer fee. The 2013-2014 budget for county attorney services was reduced to $82,326. COUNTY MANAGER Interim County Manager Bob Jones brought several items to the attention of the Board: 1. Annual employees’ luncheon would be held today at 11:30. 2. Restoration of the 1920’s map of Glades County is 65% complete. 3. Carpet in the courtroom and BoCC chambers was professionally cleaned. 4. Air-conditioning work, part of the courthouse restoration project, is still under way. 5. The Courthouse lawn has been aerated, but seemingly with no noticeable improvement. Replacement of sod may be needed. 6. A replacement desk was ordered for the County Manager’s of ce with a savings of $1,502 with government-purchase and other discounts. 7. Hazardous Waste Collection day will be January 25, 2014 from 8-12 at the Doyle Conner Building provided by contract with Hardee County; advertising and other notices will be posted. 8. Insulation of the courthouse attic, another part of the courthouse restoration project is being scheduled. Concerning Jones’ item 5 above, Interim County Manager Avant Brown commented that his parks/mowing crew is doing everything the lawn maintenance contractor is proposing, but has seen almost no improvement or change; he stated fungicide and herbicides are being applied as directed. Mr. Brown informed the Board that the restroom facilities at Harney Pond Canal Park have been painted. He said the Board will need to address the matter of the pavement deterioration at the last boat ramp. Commissioner Stanley inquired of the computer upgrades and Bob Jones informed him/the Board that Jesse Wallace is preparing each computer for connection to the new server. Jones said there are several items connected to the County’s existing website that link county building permit applications, zoning and other maps, and when all the computers are connected to the new server and all email accounts are operating optimally, Jesse will check the website. COMMISSIONERS ITEMS AND COMMENTS Commissioner Stanley thanked the Board for the of cial action on requesting sidewalks in Buckhead Ridge. ADJOURN Chairman Storter continued the meeting until 1 PM. Meeting reconvened at 1:15 to consider Ajax Building Corp’s proposed Guaranteed Maximum Price [GMP] for construction of the Emergenc y Operations Center. After almost 3 hours of discussing options to reduce the cost by downgrading components or pulling items from contract for the County to provide at its cost, the GMP could not be reduced to be within the budget of $4million. Board moved to declare impasse. Ajax will be paid $40,000 in accordance with the contract for soliciting bids for the job. Board then moved to offer the second ranked contractor (selected by RFQ-request for quali cationslast year) Wright Construction the same contract agreed upon by Ajax but removing the pre-construction termination fee of $40,000.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 18 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 12, 2013 busy handling calls, and doing routine maintenance at the various departments. Commissioners approved the resolution for the assessment, 3-1. Commissioner Grif n dissented. Commissioner Russell Echols w as not in attendance. James Brickel, Principal at Moore Haven Elementary School said they have started to become more visible in the community. The Christmas on the Caloosahatchee celebration will be held Thursday, Dec.12. The school would like to expand the celebration. The school celebrates their 45th anniversary this year. They requested and received approval to have a presentation on the school after the Christmas celebration. He presented a short video about the history of the school to the commissioners. The video showed old photos of past employees of the school to the song from Louis Armstrong, What a w onderful world." A reworks display will follow the celebration on the Moore Haven City pier Thursday. The commission approved a donation of $350 to help pay with the reworks display. Commissioner Paul Beck said he supports education, the community and the public school system. Mr. Brickel said the video brought out a lot of memories for those in attendance at the meeting. He said it is a good idea to celebrate what the school has meant to the community. The commission also discussed a requestt to have sidewalks and street lights installed from the Buckhead Ridge Volunteer Fire Department to Linda Road at the Moose Lodge. They sent the request to the Florida Department of Transportation. Commissioners approved changes to their enterprise zone boundary. Glades County Economic Council Executive Director Tracy Whirls said the changes include some property in Lakeport that is being considered for a motel project. Commissioner Grif n said the Air Glades proposal at the Clewiston Airport should have an impact on Glades County. He suggested the enterprise zone should include the railroad near route 720 to take advantage of that project. A marine industry project wants to dev elop in Port LaBelle and that property is included. A manufacturing plant is under construction in Ortona. A 30,000 square foot industrial building owned by Sugar Hill is also available for occupancy in the county. Ms. Whirls said there are ve unincorporated communities in Glades County but only three sections of enterprise zones are allowed. They continue to lobby the state legislature for changes that allow more exibility with the zones which provide tax and other incentives for growth. Glades County is part of an area of critical economic concern in the state that brings along other incentives for business and growth. President of the Ortona Community Association Hugo Geistman presented an award to the commission for their support of the new Ortona Community Building. A formal dedication is planned on Tuesday, Jan. 14 at noon. In other business, the commission discussed an extension on their suspension on impact fees on new construction for one year. The county, many years ago, approved an ordinance to collect fees for schools, parks, roads and recreation facilities. They have been suspended for several years. The original ordinance ends in February, 2014. Mr. Pringle said if the board does not continue the suspension, the county will likely have to do a new study on fees to stay in compliance with state law. "We should have the study done, if at all possible, by Feb. 13, 2014," he stated. Commissioner Beck and Commissioner Tim Stanley suggested the suspension be extended for another year. Chairman Donna Storter Long said the county must consider that growth has impacts on the county and services. She voted against setting this item on the February agenda to allow the continued suspension. The commission will vote in February on a suspension of the impact fees on new growth. The commission will meet as part of the solid waste authority on Monday, Dec. 23 at 5 pm and decided to hold a regular commission meeting at 6 pm. The chairman can decide to cancel this meeting should it not be required to pay county warrants or take other actions. Mr. Pringle said two land use cases will come before the planning board in January. The county does not have a certi ed planner on staff. They have selected a certi ed planner to review these projects. He reported that the county can ask for a two month extension with the property appraiser and tax collector to impose other special assessments for 2014. Commissioner Grif n said he didn't think there was any interest from the board to impose a law enforcement assessment, "If I don't have support, then why go there." Mr. Grif n said he would support changing the millage for law enforcement and instead make it a special assessment in an effort to bring the millage rate down. Chairman Long said everyone pays for these special assessments if they receive a bene t and millage rates involve many exemptions for tax payers. She said this item could be placed on the Dec. 23 agenda to consider the possibility. A study that is being conducted for re protection services could be altered to include law enforcement without a great deal of dif culty, she predicted. Commissioner Beck said he would want time to study and consider other information before he approved anything that affects a resident's tax bill. "You get around that rst corner and you're liable to head down a deep hole." Commissioner Stanley said he wouldn't mind putting this on the study but he did not support additional taxes for residents. "I would like to have more information on this." Mr. Grif n also would like to consider changes to the noise control ordinance. The County also continues to work on the Cypress Knee Museum lease. Mrs. Storter said the county went over budget on legal fees last year. She requested an explanation of the County Attorney retainer on what services that covers. $132,000 was budgeted for legal fees. $154,277 was spent in 2013. She said the board might want to consider a request for quali cations for county attorney services or perhaps a contract with Mr. Pringle. "We have never had the magnitude of this work, even so, we want to know where were at," she added. Mr. Pringle said he has done land planning work, litigation work, and day to day services for the county. Signi cant special projects have come along, like the health department building which were considered additional services, and were paid out of grant proceeds. Mr. Pringle said he has enjoyed providing the service to Glades County. He said he likes to give back to the community and discounts his regular rate in his work for the county. "I'm signi cantly below what an attorney with 26 years of experience would charge you." He also noted he provides a scholarship for Moore Haven High School graduates. "This current arrangement is acceptable to me. This last year has been signi cantly extra activity. I'm ready for us to get back to something that is a little more normal, and I'm starting to clean up some things that have sat idle while we dealt with some large projects," he added. Those major projects include contracts on the proposed Emergency Operations Center, and the County Business Park leases. Moore Haven City will have to change zoning on a parcel being used for a records building for the county clerk of the courts of ce. A hazardous waste collection day is scheduled for January 25 from 8 am until noon at the Doyle Conner Building. Bathroom renovations and improvements at Harney Pond have been completed. Road Superintendent Avant Brown said the coun-ty needs to resurface and improve the road at Harney Pond Canal. Chairman Long was re-elected as chairman for another year and Mr. Grif n was named Vice Chairman. TAXContinued From Page 1 CLEWISTON--The Hendry County Motorsports Park, in response to feedback from fans in the stands and Race Teams in the pits this weekend, has decided to combine the Saturday/Sunday Everglades Winter Nationals event into one extended day of racing, basically getting two days of racing into one Saturday event.
