Not a Trivial PursuitBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThe world is full of fascinating facts. Did you know that your foot is the same length as your forearm and your nose is about the same length as your thumb? Kissing helps prevent tooth decay. Laughter is a proven way to lose weight, and you will weigh less if you weigh at full moon. People only use about 35 percent of their brain when thinking, but regardless of how much you use your brain, you won’t be able to fold a normal size piece of paper in half more than 7 times, nor can you hum if you plug your nose and close your mouth. However, blueberry juice will boost your memory. Trivia buffs know that when cats are happy or pleased, they squeeze their eyes shut and that the elephant is the only animal with four knees, but is also the only animal who can’t jump (which might be a good thing!) If you yelled for eight years, seven months and six days, you would have produced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. (Hardly seems worth it!) The day after Thanksgiving is the busiest day for plumbers in the US. (I don’t even want to go there!) It’s interesting to know that a sheet of Bounce in your belt loop will repel mosquitoes or that two-thirds of all people tip their heads to the right when kissing. But what does all of that mean in the long run? Maybe 15 minutes of fame on Jeopardy. Knowledge is a wonderful thing, but it’s one thing to have knowledge and another to have wisdom. Wisdom is the application of knowledge. Wisdom is knowing what to do with all of that stuff oating around in our brains. The Bible tells us, “Be careful then how you live, not as unwise people but as wise, making the most of time, because the days are evil. So do not be foolish, but understand what the will of the Lord is.” Another translation puts it, “Make the best use of your time, despite the dif culties of these days.” One of the differences between living foolishly and living wisely is what we do with the time we have. A breakdown of the average life of 75 years goes something like this: sleep 25 years; work 16.7 years; TV 9.3 years; eating seven years; travel six years; leisure 4.5 years; illness four years; dressing two years; religion half a year. So, is this how we spend our lives? Eating for seven years, spending two years getting dressed, or one-third of our lives sleeping? Someone once told me that the tragedy of life is not that it ends so soon, but that we wait so long to begin living it. We need to start living our lives wisely. If I live to be 75 years old, I have about 6,967 days left to live. That’s all, just 6967 days. So, I need to manage myself within the time I have left. But wait a minute! I may not have that many days left! We have no guarantee of even one more day to live. No one has the guarantee that tomorrow will come for him. All anyone has is right now. Consequently, our time on this earth is valuable because it’s very limited. Once a minute is gone it’s gone and gone for good. We don’t have rewind buttons. We can’t go back and replay our lives, and we aren’t guaranteed to have the same chances next year to make up for those we failed to take this year. What will make a difference is how we use the hours that we have left; to take the knowledge that each of us has and apply it with wisdom to make the most of the time we have remaining. Today is the rst day of the rest of our lives. Let us live each day to its fullest, prioritizing and remembering what is really important. If we do that our lives will not be a trivial pursuit.Defending Your FaithCLEWISTON — How can you defend your faith in a world that casts doubt? How can you answer the doubter, the skeptic and the atheist? A special Sunday night series will be presented at Community Christian Church, located on 201 N Francisco Street, Clewiston FL. The series begins January 12, at 6 p.m. with each session being about one hour in length. Subjects to be covered are:  What is Christian Apologetics?  How can we answer the doubters?  Is the text of the Bible accurate and trustworthy?  How do we know the people, places, and events of the Bible are true?  How can God be in all places at the same time?  How can God here millions of prayers at the same time?  What is the Nature and Reality of this world and universe?  Can we know for sure that Jesus did rise from the dead? Session will be led by Mr. Jon Loftis and Dr. E. Arlin Bolejack. Running a home can be a full-time job. Unfortunately, many people don’t have that kind of time. This new year, resolve to check off all the items on your to-do list without working harder. You can accomplish this by nding smarter solutions to maintain your home ef ciently. Pest Control When it comes to pest control, a false sense of security during the cooler months can get you in trouble, as all homes are susceptible to pest invasion year-round. The experts at Terminix say the best way to prevent rodents from entering your home is by sealing holes and cracks outside your home. Install a good, thick weatherstrip on the bottom of all doors. Be sure the door from the garage is sealed extra tight. If you’re using rewood indoors, never bring more inside than you need at one time. Firewood can harbor insects like beetles, spiders, ladybugs, ants, cockroaches and centipedes. It’s important to have a professional periodically inspect for signs of pests and take preventative control measures. System Maintenance Creating monthly and annual maintenance schedules for your home’s major systems and appliances can save you time and money later, according to the experts at American Home Shield. Start by adding these tasks to your monthly calendar: clean the dishwasher drains to prevent clogs and breakdowns, ush the garbage disposal with water and baking soda to prevent odor and grime, and change the lters for your air conditioner and heating system to improve air quality. Annual maintenance should include checking your washer’s hoses for leaks, cleaning the lint from your dryer ductwork, caulking leaks around windows and doors, and having your heating and cooling systems professionally serviced. Look into home warranty plans with a broad network of professional service contractors and the ability to place service requests 24/7. A home warranty provides coverage for breakdowns of home system components, such as HVAC and plumbing, and also major appliances. Deep Clean Keeping your rooms clean can make a house a livable, comfortable home. Prevent clutter with organizational tools like baskets, shoe racks and coat hangers. To avoid extra mopping, consider asking guests to remove their shoes before walking through your home. Such measures may save you from spot cleaning, but nothing can save you from the task of home cleaning in the long term. For a thorough, deep clean and to ensure small details aren’t overlooked, consider using a professional cleaning service. Tough Jobs No other item in your home can affect the appearance of your home like carpeting. Schedule a carpet cleaning for a fresh start to the year and have the carpets cleaned every six to 12 months. Likewise, a trained technician can ensure proper care of surfaces like hardwood oors, tile and grout and also upholstered furniture. Without adding too much work to your already busy schedule, you can resolve to give your home the care it deserves.

But there’s a big difference between great photos and throwaways -and a big difference between great photographers and anybody with a smartphone. But don’t despair. “Anyone can learn to take better photos,” says Lucas Gilman, a professional adventure photographer whose work for such magazines as National Geographic and Sports Illustrated has taken him all over the globe. Gilman is offering photographers of all levels tips for producing more compelling photography: Don’t Wait Shoot images in the moment. Never put anything off until tomorrow. The weather could change, the leaves on the trees could blow. Anything that can happen will. Think Narrow When photographing a scene that mixes bright and dark, the camera will lose much of the detail and one will end up with overexposed white and underexposed black. Instead, look for mid-tones with little difference between the brightest highlights and darkest shadow. Flowers and trees, for example, are often best photographed on overcast, drizzly days. Golden Hour “My favorite time to shoot is right after sunrise or just before sunset, when the sun is low in the sky. It makes for more interesting and dramatic lighting,” says Gilman. “Shoot around these hours and you’ll be amazed at the great images you make.” Working the Subject Once you’ve found your spot and the light is right: shoot, shoot, shoot. Take different shots from different angles and unusual viewpoints. “Don’t be afraid to take ten shots and edit out nine later,” says Gilman. Shooting landscapes Something dynamic in the foreground adds depth and scale. Look for a high vantage point, such as a balcony or rooftop. Study the light, especially when shooting from high angles. Shadows can be your best friend, and make for very interesting photos. Protect “Photography is about making a eeting moment permanent, whether it’s a kayaker hurtling over a waterfall or the look on your daughter’s face when she opens that gift she’s been hoping for all year,” says Gilman. “These events can’t be recreated. Reliable photo storage is critical for protecting your work.” A reliable external hard drive data back-up system allows you to seamlessly transfer and store all your digital content with one system.

By paying attention to light and being persistent, you can take a better photo. Just be sure to protect and store your work!

By Kimberly Moore Wilmoth, UFGAINESVILLE — A University of Florida researcher has mapped the DNA genome of a new strain of citrus greening that could further threaten Florida’s beleaguered $9 billion citrus industry. Knowing the genetic makeup of the various strains is critical to nding a cure. Dean Gabriel, a plant bacteriology specialist with UF/IFAS, helped sequence and map the genome of the most prevalent form of the disease in Florida, and now he and colleagues have done the same for a new strain of the disease discovered in Brazil. There is no cure for either strain, although researchers believe that knowing the genetic makeup of the disease is critical to nding one. Gabriel said by having that “roadmap” of the bacteria genome, they will be certain there are no surprises in the Brazilian species, which has now been found in Texas. In addition, the mapping should help guide them to improvements in control methods and toward more usable genes and treatments. “What the genome does, it lets you know everything that the organism has and doesn’t have in its artillery for offense and defense— and it lets you design a strategy to control it,” Gabriel said. Researchers often liken having the genetic sequence for an organism to having its list of parts. “Having all the genetic information is like having a detailed roadmap of the organism,” said Jackie Burns, director of the UF/ IFAS Citrus Research and Education Center in Lake Alfred. Citrus greening was rst discovered by farmers in China in 1911 and made its rst appearance in Florida in 2005. It is spread by a tiny insect called the Asian citrus psyllid that feeds on the trees, leaving bacteria that starve the tree of nutrients. Infected trees produce fruits that are unsuitable for sale as fresh fruit or for juice and most die within a few years. The disease has already affected millions of citrus trees in North America. Gabriel’s team’s work will be outlined in a research paper that will be published in February in the journal Molecular PlantMicrobe Interaction. The genome map is already available online, at GenBank. To map the bacteria’s DNA genome, Gabriel’s Brazilian colleagues rst diced up and crushed tissue from the veins of infected citrus trees where the organism was most highly concentrated. They used chemicals to extract DNA and puri ed it. The team had to separate the tree DNA from that of the bacterium. DNA comprises four nucleotides, which fall into an order to encode genes speci c to an organism. Gabriel likened it to examining beads on a necklace: The beads come in only four colors, and the color sequence determines each gene – in this case, the DN A greening “necklace” held 1,195,201 beads, or 1,044 genes. The research was funded by the Citrus Research and Development Foundation Inc., an af liate of UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 2, 2014 LaBelle Heritage Museum to present Patrick Smith LaBelle Heritage Museum presents a showing of “Patrick Smith’s Florida: A Sense of Place,” at its 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 2 2014 program meeting held at LaBelle City Hall, 481 West Hickpochee Ave. Museum members and guests can enjoy a trip through the Florida of the 1930s and gain a rare glimpse into the mind of the author of “A Land Remembered” who preserved a Florida that once was, but which never again will be.

By John H. CampbellU.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District The task can seem never-ending at times, but Jacksonville District park rangers along the Okeechobee Waterway are educating boaters on navigation and anchoring policies adopted to promote safety. The anchoring policy was formalized earlier this year. It prohibits long-term anchoring in the 152-mile waterway, which connects the Atlantic Ocean at Stuart with the Gulf of Mexico at Fort Myers. Exceptions are allowed for boaters who are making progress to cross the waterway; they will be allowed to drop anchor for a period of up to 24 hours in the same location. “The basis of the policy is to provide a safe and open waterway,” said Steve Dunham, chief of the South Florida Operations Of ce in Clewiston. “It’s about navigational safety on a waterway where vessels are traveling at all hours of the day and night.” The policy has strict prohibitions against using boats on the waterway for habitation. Dunham says this is to ensure boat traf c can continue to ow smoothly. “Many recreational boaters were clogging the waterway, and navigation through some areas was becoming a serpentine event due to the zig-zagging that some boaters were doing to avoid these anchored vessels,” Dunham said. “Without this policy, it was only a matter a time before we had an accident.” Implementation of the policy has been challenging, in part, because the state of Florida has adopted navigation laws that many see as much friendlier than the anchoring policy in place on the waterway. “Boaters have to remember that state regulations don’t govern a federal waterway,” said Dunham. “Once we tell them that we’re doing this for safety reasons, they are very understanding.” A new component to the education effort has recently included citations, penalties and nes for boaters found in violation of the anchoring policy. One boater was ned $500 over the summer for his failure to comply with the policy—something Dunham says is only done as a last resort. “Over the years, it’s been dif cult for park rangers to keep boats from anchoring due to the con icting policies,” said Dunham. “Our rangers will continue to work to educate boaters using the waterway.” Hundreds of boats continue to make use of the waterway in south Florida, which has remained open for more than a year after installation of a manatee protection system at the Moore Haven Lock and unexpected repairs at the St. Lucie Lock forced those structures to close for about a month during 2012. Changes in operations at Moore Haven Lock were recently announced. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, the lock will operate on a limited schedule, with lockages at 8 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. On all other days, Moore Haven will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. The other four locks on the waterway continue with their normal hours of 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., seven days a week. “This adjustment is being made to accommodate a change in the staf ng pattern at Moore Haven Lock,” said Tim Murphy, assistant chief of the Operations Division. “Our intent is to implement this change in a manner that causes the least inconvenience to those who navigate through the Moore Haven Lock.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 B L I N D N E S S G L A U C O M A P R E V E N T A B L E FROM IS January is Glaucoma Awareness Month.

Approve Payment of County Warrants 2. Records DispositionBUSINESS AGENDA3. Rehabilitation Center in the Port LaBelle Inn – (Chairman Storter) At the request of Glades County and Hendry County citizens who reside in Port LaBelle, Board unanimously adopted a resolution opposing the change in zoning uses to allow industrial and religious use of the Port LaBelle Inn. St. Mathews House of Naples had applied for the change to be able to provide a rehab facility and the described uses are not compatible with Hendry’s Comprehensive Land Use plan and Future Land Use Map. Glades County owners of property in Port LaBelle addressed the board including Han Mouthaan, Dwayne House, Walt Ferguson and Hendry County resident Jack Zorn, who lives 50 ft. from the Hendry Glades county line. Chairman Storter read the resolution into the record, Commissioner Echols moved to approve and Commissioner Beck seconded the motion. Commissioner Beck commented at length about the inappropriateness of the Port LaBelle Inn location for such a facility. The inn is sited right near the Hendry-Glades County line with its parking lot in Glades County, across the street from Port LaBelle Marina. Chairman Storter requested the motion to include instructions to submit the resolution to the Chairman of the Hendry County Local Planning Agency which will be considering the application at its Jan. 15 meeting, and to the Chairman of the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners who will make the nal decision on the application Jan. 28.COUNTY MANAGERInterim County Manager Bob Jones reported that Road Superintendent Interim County Manager Avant Brown had returned home following emergency appendectom y surgery. Mr. Jones told the board that he had been informed by Government Services Group that an MSBU (Municipal Services Bene t Unit) for law enforcement probably would not stand the test in court. The board had requested information before considering going forward with the option of changing the current MSTU (Municipal Services Taxing Unit) revenue source from an ad valorem basis, to a bene t service basis. Jones informed the board that he will have two EMS openings Jan. 2 and will be advertising the positions. Public input on non-agenda items Commissioners items and comments Commissioners wished all a Merry Christmas. ADJOURN These notes are prepared by Donna Storter Long who is solely responsible for their content. Glades County Commission Meeting Notes The new year is right around the corner and now is the time to make a plan to turn a resolution to quit tobacco into reality. The Florida Department of Health’s Tobacco Free Florida program is encouraging tobacco users across the state to create a personalized quit plan with help from the state’s free and easy resources. Using one of Tobacco Free Florida’s 3 Ways to Quit, which include the Florida Quitline, Web Coach, and in-person classes through the Florida Area Health Education Center (AHEC) network, may double your chances of success. Since 2007, more than 93,400 Floridians have successfully quit using one of these free services. Studies show nearly two out of three adult smokers would like to take steps toward being tobacco free. “If you live in Florida, free evidencebased programs to help you quit tobacco are right at your ngertips,” said Tobacco Free Florida Bureau Chief Shannon Hughes. “Cutting tobacco out of your life not only vastly improves your health, but also saves money.” Tobacco Free Florida’s resources include consultation from a certi ed and trained Quit Coach, as well as free FDA-approved Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT) like the patch and gum, when medically appropriate. This combined approach of counseling and NRT may double or triple a tobacco user’s chance of quitting. While quitting tobacco is dif cult, it is not impossible.

GAINESVILLE — University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences faculty work on just about any food-related topic imaginable. As 2014 approaches, here are just a few of their food-related predictions — everything from better fruit packaging to a new focus on reducing food waste — that may soon be on the public’s radar. Good taste, less waste: Food researchers say roughly one-third of food produced for humans around the globe is lost or wasted each year — 1.3 billion tons of it. Discussion of this problem is expected to make its way from food industry and academic circles and into American homes, with home food preparers becoming more sensitive to reducing food waste. Fresher fruit: Jeff Brecht works on ways to improve fruit avor and consumer experience. To that end, he’s worked with UF and University of California, Davis researchers on “modi ed atmosphere packaging” for a range of fruits, including berries and tomatoes. In that packaging, special polymers interact with fruit respiration so that oxygen is decreased while carbon dioxide is increased. The result? Handlers can wait longer to pick fruit; it takes longer to go bad. And tropical and subtropical fruits can be held at higher temperatures to avoid avor-robbing chilling injury. Better-tasting, home-grown tomatoes: Harry Klee, UF’s tomato-taste tinkerer, has worked for years to target the most universally consumer-pleasing tomato avors. He and colleagues are poised this year to release two hybrid tomatoes, suitable for noncommercial growers, and both are said to knock it out of the park in taste tests. Garlic: Sue Percival, chairman of IFAS’ Food Science and Human Nutrition department, and colleagues found modest changes in the immune responses of human subjects who consumed an aged garlic extract every day, as part of a six-month research study. A control group took placebos. Both groups kept health diaries and gave blood samples. The garlic didn’t prevent colds or u, she said, but researchers did nd that cold and u symptoms were reduced between 30 and 50 percent. Eat your broccoli: Consumers will begin to focus more on vegetable consumption, both for better health and to lessen their environmental footprint. Demand may outpace supply, and while Food Safety Modernization Act requirements will help ensure safer produce, it will undoubtedly boost costs for growers, packers and grocers — and consumers. And eat your mushrooms: In a more recent study, Percival’s team tested shiitake mushrooms’ effect on human health outcomes. One group ate a daily serving o f chopped, dried mushrooms; a second group ate two servings. Blood was taken from both groups at the start and end of the study. Both groups’ test results revealed “remarkable” bene cial changes in their immune-system regulating cytokines and immune function, she said. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee January 2, 2014 Experts see food trends that may end up on your plate in 2014 Special to the Glades County Democrat/ Laura MathisHoliday lightsThe Garcias’ home on Baker’s Highway had an amazing Christmas display.
