On Saturday a wild re that burned 20 acres threatened two homes and damaged one boat and a power pole off of Ash Road. The cause was unauthorized debris pile burning. Florida Forest Service and Glades County Fire Department want to remind residents to know the law before you strike that match. “Your local Florida Forest Service in Palmdale can answer your burning setback, authorization and onsite questions,” Ms. Yunas explained. “If your re escapes then you can be held liable for any damages or injuries.” On Sunday a wild re ignited off of Altman Lane and burned three acres.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 27, 2014 2 BY MELISSA BELTZ Sta WriterAs the eastern and central United States were hit with one of the coldest winters in recent memory, South Florida saw warmer than normal temperatures for the third winter in a row, according to the 2013-2014 South Florida Winter Recap, released by the National Weather Service (NWS) Forecast Of ce. The winter season, which lasted from December 2013 to February 2014, saw average temperatures across South Florida that were anywhere from two to four degrees warmer than normal, according to the report. The main reason behind the warmer temperatures was a stronger-than-normal high pressure area that extended from the western North Atlantic to Florida; the high pressure area pushed warm winds across South Florida and blocked any arctic or polar air masses from making their way into southern Florida, the report states. These higher-than-normal temperatures meant less impact from cold winter weather, including on the agricultural elds of the Glades. According to the report, fewer than ve mornings saw temperatures near or at freezing in the areas west and south of Lake Okeechobee. The mornings that did see those colder temperatures were con ned to a period in midto late-January. Not only did the winter season see warmer than average temperatures, it also saw both above-normal and below-normal precipitation for areas in South Florida. While the eastern metropolitan areas of the east coast saw above-normal rainfall, the interior and western areas saw below-normal rainfall, according to the report. Portions of Palm Beach County were rocked with 15 to 22 inches of rain between Jan. 9 and 10, and Miami-Dade County was hit with two to ve inches of rain in a 12-hour period the day after Christmas. The southern Everglades was the driest portion of South Florida this winter, as well as coastal Collier County, where only three to four inches of rain was recorded, according to the report. LaBelle recorded 4.86 inches of rainfall this winter, which is 1.29 inches below normal; Moore Haven recorded 4.45 inches of rainfall during the 2013/14 winter season, 1.09 inches below normal. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center has also released its predictions for the upcoming spring season, which lasts from March until May. The NOAA is predicting the warmweather pattern to continue through May, though the rst half of March may see uctuations in temperature from cool to warm, according to the same report released by NWS. Because of the increasing spring temperatures, the ground dries more quickly and the threat of wild re increases during the months of March, April and May. Just as those months see an increase in the likelihood of wild res, they also see a signi cant increase in the risk of rip currents along the east coast beaches because of the winds that come in from the east. Spring is also the time for thunderstorms, which are often accompanied by strong winds, hail and even tornadoes, the report states. South Florida got their rst dose of springtime weather on March 6, when a string of severe thunderstorms rolled through the area, bringing with it violent winds and tornadoes. The NOA encourages residents and visitors of South Florida to visit the National Weather Service Miami Forecast Of ce's website (weather.gov/south orida) where they stay up-to-date on the latest watches, advisories and warnings. For information on wild re prevention, visit the Florida Forest Service website: www,freshfrom orida.com/ Divisions-Offices/Florida-Forest-Service. For information on beach safety, including up-to-date information on surf forecasts, visit the National Weather Service Rip Current Awareness page: www.ripcurrents.noaa.gov. South Florida Sees One of Warmest Winters on RecordAbove-average temperatures across Glades meant less winter impact on crops Child Care of Southwest Florida invites early childhood educators and caregivers to Circles of Care, a daylong conference designed to inform and inspire those who work with children from infancy through elementary school. The 19th annual conference is scheduled for Saturday, April 12 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. at the Fort Myers campus of Edison State College. Presentations, age-speci c workshops, hands-on experiences and exhibits will provide information and resources for teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals, family-care providers and parents. Up to .65 continuing education credits will be available. "Useful content, compelling presenters and great value have made this the conference of the year for early childhood education in southwest Florida. More than 600 people typically participate," said Beth Lobdell, executive director of Child Care of Southwest Florida. Keynote speaker Ron Mohl will share teaching methods with STEAM (science, technology, engineering, the arts and math), provide ideas and activities to arouse students' natural curiosity and engage their families. Glen "The Wild Wizard" Beitmen is returning to Circles of Care with an entertaining and enthusiastic presentation that includes a year's worth of STEM curriculum ideas. Circles of Care conference partners are Edison State College, Florida Gulf Coast University, Southwest Florida Parent and Child Magazine and Lee County Association for the Education of Young Children. Child Care of Southwest Florida's mission is to strengthen and enhance the lives of children and their families with scholarships and services to lowincome children at the agency's six accredited centers in Lee and Hendry counties. The agency provides early childhood education, as well as voluntary pre-kindergarten and Head Start programs at its centers near Page Field, on the Fort Myers campus of Edison State College, and in Dunbar, Lehigh Acres, LaBelle and Clewiston. Dedicated to the premise that kindergarten is too late, the center's professionals work to ready children for school success. Research shows that high-quality, early childhood education reduces dropout rates, teen pregnancy and arrests. Child Care of Southwest Florida Inc., a United Way agency established in 1967, also provides state-mandated training for childcare professionals and administers the federal food program for eligible centers and family childcare homes throughout southwest Florida. Visit www.ccsw .org to learn more. Early-childhood educators, administrators, paraprofessionals, familycare providers and parents who register online by March 29 will save $15 on registration for the Circles of Care conference, presented Saturday, April 12 by Child Care of Southwest Florida. The day-long training opportunity is designed to inform and inspire those who work with children from infancy through elementary school. Early registration is available online until March 29 at $40 per person. Admission after that date and at the door will be $55. To register as a participant or exhibitor, or for more information, log onto www.ccsw .org, or call 239-2781002. Circles of Care Early Childhood Education Conference BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonScissor-tailed Flycatchers breed from eastern Colorado and Nebraska and south to Texas and western Louisiana. They spend the winter south of the U.S./Mexico border and a few winters in southern Florida where reports of sighting range from October to mid-April annually. They are currently being observed at several locations in Florida, including the power lines along County Road 835 in southern Hendry County, three to six miles north of the County Road 833 intersection. When stopping to observe the birds, onlookers will need to pull their car off of this busy roadway. These birds are an elegant, slender, salmon-gray ycatcher with an extremely long, forked tail. They have a stout bill, blackish wings and a black tail with white edges. Males are more intensely colored than females. Young birds have shorter tails and are duller in color than the adult birds. The Scissor-tailed Flycatcher's calls include squeaks, chirrs and buzzy rattles. With their long tail held in a horizontal position they can maneuver and "sky-dance" gracefully. Their diet includes insects and occasionally berries. Nearly all of their food is captured on the wing or by gleaning it from vegetation. They will often swallow their prey during the ight back to the perch, but will beat large items against a perch before eating them. Occasionally, they will forage on the ground for insects or berries. On the breeding grounds, the male often escorts the female while she builds a nest on her own in an isolated tree or shrub in open area. The nest has a rough frame of plant materials and is lined with soft brous materials, including plant bers, grass, paper and other materials. The female lays three to six eggs which are incubated for 13 to 23 days. The young edge when they are 14 to 17 days old. Birdwatching TripsThe community is invited to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on the April 12 and April 26 birdwatching trips to STA5. Reservations are required for the scheduled driving trips. Walking and bicycling access is available Friday through Monday during daylight hours except for the 11 posted fall and spring duck harvesting Sundays. From Clewiston at the State Road 80/ C.R. 835 (Evercane Road) intersection, go south on C.R. 835 for 26.5 miles, then turn (on curve) east on to the wide dirt road, Deer Fence Canal Road, and continue 2.5 miles to the STA5 Deer Fence Public Access Parking Area. For a map, visit the HendryGlades Audubon website at www.hendrygladesaudubon. To sign up for the driving trips, send an email to Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com with the participants' names and contact information, including an emergency cell number for the trip day, the date participants would like to go, and the number in the party.

Osceola Avenue Clewiston, FL 33440 (863) 983-1511 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 27, 2014 4 BY DR. LEONARD CARROLLIt takes guts to face the facts about colorectal cancer and do something about it. Hendry Regional Medical Center wants you to know the facts: First, Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States — only lung cancer is more deadly, affecting about 174,000 people each year and taking 160,000 lives. This year alone, about 149,000 Americans will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer, and about 55,000 will die from it. By comparison, breast cancer will affect 213,000 women this year and claim about 41,000 lives. During that same time, roughly 234,000 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer, and 27,000 will die from it. Second, even though colon cancer and rectal cancer are often referred to together (as colorectal cancer), they describe cancers of two different areas. Rectal cancer occurs when a tumor grows in the bottom six-inches of the bowel. If a tumor grows in any area of the bowel that’s above the rectum, it is called colon cancer. Third, Colorectal cancer affects men and women in equal numbers. It is not a “man’s disease” — which is how some people think. Fourth, Colorectal cancer doesn’t discriminate; a person of any race can get this disease. However, African-American men and women are more likely to develop colorectal cancer than any other racial group, and they are also more likely to die from it. Fifth, although it is true that nine out of ten cases of colorectal cancer are diagnosed in people older than 50, the average age for diagnosis is only 62. This is why doctors recommend that everyone older than 50 should have routine screening exams for colorectal cancer. Sixth, genes can play a part in who develops colorectal cancer. As with many other diseases, a person’s risk goes up if a close family member has had it. However, the majority of people who get colorectal cancer have no family history at all. Seventh, the majority of people who develop colorectal cancer have no history of in ammatory bowel disease or other bowel conditions. Even if a person has never had digestive problems of any kind, he or she is still at risk for colorectal cancer. However, a change of bowel habits may be an early symptom. Eighth, Colorectal cancer can grow for a long time without causing any symptoms — or in some cases, it may cause vague or low-level symptoms that a person might ignore. Often, by the time it causes noticeable symptoms, the cancer has become much harder to treat. Ninth, Colorectal cancer is actually one of the most preventable cancers. Tumors in the colon or rectum begin as polyps (benign growths), and it is possible to detect and remove them before they become cancerous. This is done with a colonoscopy, a test that uses a scope to examine the entire colon and rectum. If the doctor nds any polyps, he or she can remove them during the exam. Tenth, when colorectal cancer is found early — meaning that the cancer is con ned to one location within the colon or rectum — it is very treatable and the vast majority of people survive. It becomes much more dif cult to treat when it’s discovered later and after the cancer has spread to other parts of the body. For additional information on preventing colorectal cancer, call 863-983-5026. March is Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month The Florida Department of Health recognized the start of the Capitol’s “Biggest Loser” competition. This annual event, hosted by Senate Health Policy Committee Chair Aaron Bean and House Health and Human Services Committee Chair Richard Corcoran, encourages healthy weight through the legislative session and is open to all members of the legislature, Capitol staff and agency employees. “I want to thank Chair Bean and Chair Corcoran for leading the way to healthy weight during the 2014 Legislative Session,” said State Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong. “The ‘Biggest Loser’ competition is a great way to make healthy weight a team sport.” Competitions like the Capitol’s “Biggest Loser” program are innovative by shaping environments that promote healthy choices. The Department of Health has launched Healthiest Weight Florida, a public-private collaboration bringing together state agencies, local governments, professional associations, faith-based organizations and entire communities to help Florida’s children, adults and families make more informed choices about healthy eating and active living. To learn more about Healthiest Weight Florida, please visit www.HealthiestWeightFL.org. The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts.

Answer Me ThisBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist Church1) What is greater than God and more evil than the devil? The poor have it, the rich need it and if you eat it, you’ll die. 2) Who am I? God made Adam out of dust, but thought it best to make me rst: So I was made before the man, according to God’s holy plan. My whole body God made complete, without arms or hands or feet. My ways and acts did God control, but in my body He placed no soul. A living being I became, and Adam gave to me a name. Later, for a purpose God did see, He placed a living soul in me. But that soul of mine God had to claim and from me He took it back again. And when this soul from me had ed, I was the same as when rst made; Without arms, legs, feet or soul, I travel on from pole to pole. So get your Bible and read with care; you’ll nd my name recorded there. 3) If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight kids already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion? 4) It’s time to elect a new world leader, and your vote counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates: Candidate A: Associates with crooked politicians and consults with astrologists. He’s had two mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks eight to ten martinis a day. Candidate B: Was kicked out of of ce twice, sleeps until noon, used opium in college and drinks a quart of whisky every evening. Candidate C: He’s a decorated war hero, a vegetarian, doesn’t smoke, drinks an occasional beer and hasn’t had any extramarital affairs. Which of these candidates would be your choice? Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt. Candidate B is Winston Churchill. Candidate C is Adolph Hitler. And by the way: Answer to the abortion question -if you said yes, you just killed Beethoven. The answer to question two: Whale or Leviathan. Created before humans (Genesis 1:20-23), named by Adam (Genesis 2:19), Swallowed Jonah (a living soul). “Nothing” is the answer to the riddle of question one. Nothing is greater than God or more evil than the devil. Poor people have nothing and rich people need nothing. And if you eat nothing, you will die. Summing it all up: The number of chapters that exist before Psalm 118: 594. The number of chapters of the Bible after Psalm 118: 594. The two together total 1188. What’s the verse at the very center of the Bible? Psalm 118:8. “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” The very center of the Bible reminds us to trust in God over trusting in ourselves or other people. Good solution to any question!Trust QuartetCLEWISTON — The Trust Quartet, singing Gaither-style, four-part harmony, is scheduled to perform in concert on March 30 at 11 a.m. at Turning Point C.O.G., located on 207 Pine Lane, Flaghole, Clewiston.

The settlements resolve claims alleging pricexing among major manufacturers of dynamic random access memory (DRAM), a common form of memory chip found in hightechnology devices. Individuals and businesses that purchased various DRAM electronic devices from someone other than a DRAM manufacturer between Jan. 1, 1998 and Dec. 31, 2002 can le claims to recover money from the settlement fund by visiting DRAMclaims.com or by calling 1-800-589-1425. Eligible consumers must submit their claim forms by Aug. 1. “Pricexing harms the healthy competition that keeps prices fair for consumers, and I encourage anyone who may have purchased a DRAM device and be eligible for money under this settlement to le a claim,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. Florida, along with other states, led an antitrust lawsuit in federal court in 2006, alleging that Florida’s consumers overpaid for electronic devices containing DRAM for purchases made between 1998 and 2002. The settlements also require the DRAM manufacturers to train their employees regarding compliance with the antitrust laws and prohibits them from engaging in certain unlawful conduct related to the sale of DRAM. Consumers who purchased one or more of the following DRAM devices may be eligible: desktop computers, laptop computers, computer servers, computer graphics cards, printers, video game consoles, MP3 players, PDAs, DVD players and digital video recorders. Consumers Who Purchased DRAM Electronic Devices Could Get MoneyAttorney General Pam Bondi announces claims process for eligible purchasers of DRAM Memory Chips and products containing DRAM Chips from $310 million price- xing settlement

Ask FlorenceBy the Visiting Nurses Association“I deserve good things. I am entitled to my share of happiness. I refuse to beat myself up. I am an attractive person. I am fun to be with.”—Stuart Smalley, Saturday Night Live character played by Al Franken. The “Daily Af rmations” of Smalley—a Saturday Night Live character in the 1990s played by Al Franken—made for great laughs satirizing the self-help industry. But it turns out that Smalley, and his real-life predecessor, “The Power of Positive Thinking” author Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, had a good point. New research from Concordia University in Montreal reveals that maintaining or improving self-esteem may help prevent health problems typically associated with aging. Nearly 150 people ages 60 and older participated in the study. Researchers monitored the group for four years, checking their cortisol levels while watching for symptoms of depression and measuring degrees of selfesteem every two years. Other factors such as mortality risk and marital and economic status were also considered. The study found that when people reported a greater degree of self-esteem, their cortisol (a stress hormone) levels decreased. Conclusions indicated a direct relationship between self-esteem and health. Similarly, when participants’ self-esteem decreased, they experienced a surge in the hormone, which proved insightful for people with family histories of stress or depression. Currently, depression plagues the lives of nearly 7 million Americans aged 65 and older. Prolonged periods of increased stress (among other psychological, biological, environmental and genetic factors) can contribute to your risk for developing depression, which can lead to an increased risk for medical illness and cognitive decline. Overexposure to high levels of cortisol can also weaken the immune system and damage muscle tissues—even bones. In the study, the participants’ degree of self-esteem was measured by their level of self-worth. So, how do you increase feelings of self-worth? When we check off the importance of following a proper diet, getting exercise, volunteering, socializing and remaining active, we nd ourselves back to positive thinking. In fact, no less a source than the Mayo Clinic credits an optimistic outlook with the potential to help, among others:  Lower rates of depression;  Create greater resistance to colds;  Develop better coping skills during stressful situations. Positive thinking, Mayo Clinic materials advise, “starts with self talk … the endless stream of unspoken thoughts that run through your head.” It’s pretty important to keep you self-tal k positive. Perhaps even say it aloud. While facing a mirror. Why not? After all, yesterday’s Stuart Smalley is today’s U.S. Sen. Al Franken. Most medical inquiries are best serve d by consulting your physician or a quali e d specialist and this "Ask Florence" is no substitute for professional exams and insights. To reach Ask Florence, please email Nicolette.Christie@vna orida.org.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee March 27, 2014 By the Glades County Tobacco-Free Partnership Tobacco use is the leading cause of prev entable death in the United States, taking over 430,000 lives each year. The majority of adult smokers (90 percent) began before the age of 18. Each day more than 4,000 y outh try smoking for the rst time, and an additional 1,000 youth become regular daily smokers. Studies have found that people who don't start smoking before the age of 18 are unlikely to start. Reasons that young people begin using tobacco products vary. Research shows that y outh are more likely to be in uenced by parents, teachers, coaches and other adults; as well as peers, mass media, and product availability. Because there are so many in uences, efforts to reduce tobacco use must include various strategies. Schools play an important role in shaping student tobacco use behaviors and since almost all tobacco users begin use as teens, school years are a critical time for prevention. For schools to be effective in preventing and reducing tobacco use among young people, they must create an environment that encourages and reinforces a tobaccofree lifestyle. In June 2011, Governor Rick Scott signed a law amending the Florida Clean Indoor A ir Act to give school boards the authority to designate all district property as tobaccofree. While smoking is banned inside school buildings, not all school districts in Florida restrict smoking and tobacco use on all of their properties or during events. A 100 percent comprehensive, tobacco-free school policy prohibits smoking or any tobacco use on school grounds and at all school functions, thus delivering a wide range of signi cant bene ts, from its impact on the prevalence of smoking among students, to promoting a healthy lifestyle and a safe learning environment for students, staff, and visitors by reducing exposure to secondhand smoke. Smoking outside near building entrances or fresh air intakes often results in migration of smoke indoors. A comprehensive tobacco-free school policy protects students, faculty, staff, and visitors from health risks associated with tobacco use and involuntary exposure to secondhand smoke. There is no risk-free level of secondhand smoke exposure; breathing even small amounts can be dangerous. Secondhand smoke is among the leading causes of preventable death in the United States, and more than 49,000 people die each year from secondhand smoke exposure related diseases. Secondhand smoke exposure causes disease and premature death in children and adults who do not smoke; students exposed to secondhand smoke are at an increased risk for acute respiratory infections, ear problems, and severe asthma. The importance of de-normalizing tobacco use through positive role modeling by adult employees and visitors cannot be overlooked. It is important that those investing many hours educating youth lead by example and set high standards for them to follow. Implementation of a comprehensive tobacco-free school policy sets a positive example for students through healthy role modeling, while eliminating modeling of dangerous and self-destructive behavior. When students do not see their teachers, coaches, school faculty, parents, and visitors using tobacco, they will be less likely to think it is acceptable to start using. In a time of increased knowledge about the risks of tobacco use and the need to protect our health, it is important that Glades public Schools join other public institutions that have established no smoking regulations in order to safeguard our students and school community. W hy have tobacco-free schools? By Barbara BrownSpecial to the Glades County Democrat Every chef has to start somewhere, and Garrett Swaford started at the picnic for Keenagers this month. He insisted that he could cook, and would love to grill the hamburgers and hot dogs. No, Garrett is not the 50 YOA requirement to join this group, but this 12 year-old Emeril Lagassee wannabe, donned his chef's apron, and spatula in hand, proceeded to satisfy the appetite of 17 hungry Keenagers. Under the watchful eye of Margaret Brown, and his grandma, Kandi Snow, we have it under good authority that only one hamburger fell through the cracks! Following dessert, each guest was asked to tell how they wound up in Florida, and especially in Moore Haven. Four were Florida Crackers, but Sharon McCormick was the only one who was born and raised here in Moore Haven. It was interesting to hear how God leads, as Terry and Trinket Feitknecht, volunteers with Wycliffe Bible Translators, and guests of Tom and Barbara Shanahan, told of their decision to purchase a motorhome. However, unless they sold their home in Maryland, they couldn't do this, so they said they turned the decision over to the Lord, and the rest was historysold their home, met the Shanahan's (who are also from Maryland), bought their motorhome, and are thanking Him for being here in this warm weather. Oleta Richardson, seems to have received the honor of leading the Keenagers every month in praying for any requests, and has graciously accepted this unof cial of ce. We all enjoyed Tom Shanahan's guitar playing, and leading everyone in singing gospel songs. We only have two more get togethers before the summer. Next month will be covered dish at First Baptist Church, and we will watch a DVD about the gator attacking Fred Langdale. No, you don't have to belong to First Baptistjust be 50 years old or older. Invite a friend and join us at noon. In May, we are planning a party, and each Keenager is to bring their favorite " nger food," along with the recipe for making it. So, this "heads up" gives everyone plenty of time to decide and print the recipe. Keenagers enjoy picnic grilled by young chef Special to the Glades County DemocratMargaret Brown is enjoying her meal. Special to the Glades County DemocratChef Garrett Swaford, is grilling the hamburgers and hot dogs for the Keenagers get together this month.

Florida Forest Service investigated the cause and found it was ignited by equipment. Florida Forest Service and Glades County Fire Department want to remind residents to not pull off of roadways into tall, dry grass. Hot exhaust pipes and muf ers can easily start wild res that you may not see until it's too late. State Wildland Fire ghters encourage homeowners who live near nature to build a wild re emergency kit, and make a wild re plan with your family. Design your home and landscaping with safety in mind, and use materials and plants that might contain a re, instead of fueling it. Regularly cleaning gutters is a must, and move ammable objects like patio furniture away from the house. Protect vinyl and wood construction materials; they are more vulnerable to re. And if there is a wild re nearby, evacuate early! Take your emergency kit and follo w your family wild re plan. Learn how to be a good neighbor with nature at www.FloridaForestService.com/Wild res.

They bring joy to the lives of their friends and families. They also improve their communities through service to public and private employers, their churches and other nonpro t organizations,” said Attorney General Bondi. “It’s important to recognize the obstacles they overcome on a daily basis and to provide every opportunity possible to help people with disabilities succeed in Florida.” The rst state-funded program for Floridians with developmental disabilities opened in 1921. Today, services are offered to individuals with all types of disabilities through a number of state agencies, including Agency for Persons with Disabilities, Department of Children and Families, Agency for Health Care Administration, Department of Elder Affairs, Department of Health and the Department of Education’s Division of Blind Services and Division of Vocational Rehabilitation.
