MurphyOkeechobee News Sheriff Stuart Whiddon said Tuesday was a day he never really wanted to come to his community as he announced to the Glades County Board o f County Commissioners that he would close the county jail due to nancial problems caused by the federal government. For eight years, the sheriff has operated the facility and housed federal inmates. In recent years fewer and fewer inmates have been sent to Glades County which made nancial feasibility impossible. Sheriff Whiddon announced he will be moving county inmates back to the old jail. He reported they have lost $1 million in the last two months as fewer and fewer federal prisoners are being housed at the facility. "We had a meeting with ICE in Miami last Friday and had a heart-to-heart with them and they told us it probabl y won't get much better," he added. Sheriff Whiddon said he needs at least 400 inmates to pay the bills at the facility. They have averaged roughl y 200 inmates in recent months. There is a $3 million reserve fund to help keep the facility operating. This Friday, April 11, they will meet with the investors in the private facility, to iron out details. Sheriff Whiddon predicted the facility would remain open for three to ve months. Sheriff Whiddon expects to lay of f 100 employees. He will also lose some Sheriff to close jailSee JAIL — Page 18

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 10, 2014 4 The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) have released the 2014 South Florida Environmental Report detailing a year of science, engineering and environmental restoration progress to improve the Everglades, Lake Okeechobee, the Kissimmee Basin and South Florida coastal areas. The 2014 report marks the 16th year of uni ed, streamlined environmental reporting by the two agencies. "With the support of Governor Rick Scott and his landmark $880 million Everglades water quality plan, we have accelerated projects designed to improve water quality and ow to the River of Grass," said DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. "That commitment continues in 2014, with Governor Scott's $130 million recommendation to further Everglades restoration." Spanning three volumes, the 2014 South Florida Environmental Report uni es more than 75 individual documents. The volumes, plus a 27-page executive summary, provide extensive peer-reviewed research summaries, data analyses, nancial updates and a searchable database of environmental projects. "We continued to make progress during the last year to construct projects that improve Everglades water quality and increase water storage while also managing record rainfall," said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory. "The 2014 South Florida Environmental Report documents these efforts and our plans to move forward with the state's Restoration Strategies initiative to bene t the entire South Florida environment." Highlights in the 2014 report include: An expanded network of Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) is cleansing water. With 57,000 acres of treatment wetlands operating, South Florida's network of STAs treated 1.2 million acre-feet of water, achieving their best performance to date. Working together with best management and improved farming practices over nearly two decades, the treatment marshes have prevented approximately 4,270 metric tons of phosphorus from entering the Everglades. Restoration Strategies are being implemented. Work is underway on several key construction projects in the state of Florida and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's milestone agreement to achieve state water quality standards for the Everglades. This includes construction progress on two shallow reservoirs, known as ow equalization basins, that will help optimize the performance of the STAs and moving forward with science plan studies. Best Management Practices (BMPs) continue reducing nutrients. Working in conjunction with the STAs, the Everglades Agricultural Area delivered a 41-percent reduction this year when compared to the pre-BMP baseline time period. To the west, the C-139 Basin reduced phosphorus discharges to historic levels. Projects and initiatives are improving South Florida's ecosystems. A host of restoration work was completed or moved forward in the past year, including a three-year update to the Lake Okeechobee Protection Plan and the start of DEP's development of the Lake Okeechobee Basin Management Action Plan to help meet target phosphorus levels. Wading bird nesting on the lake was at its highest since 2006, while white ibis, great egrets and federally endangered wood storks led a moderate improvement in overall nesting throughout South Florida. Progress was also made on a suite of watershed construction projects to bene t the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee estuaries. Kissimmee River restoration continues to see success. The rst three phases of Kissimmee River restoration have re-established ow to 24 miles of river channel and returned ow to more than 7,700 acres of oodplain. These highlights, and numerous other efforts, featured in the 2014 South Florida Environmental Report continue to provide the scienti c foundation of agency programs and projects that, year after year, are improving the entire South Florida region. The 2014 report covers environmental information for Water Year 2013 (May 1, 2012 through April 30, 2013) and project/budgetary information for Fiscal Year 2013 (October 1, 2012 through September 30, 2013).

Water Quality Improvements Highlighted in Annual Report The environmental report highlights restoration progress; the state of the South Florida Ecosystem SUBMITTED PHOTOStormwater Treatment Areas: These vast, freshwater wetlands located south of Lake Okeechobee use “green” technology to reduce excess phosphorus from waters owing to the Everglades. Their expansive, shallow waters and rich plant life also make them outstanding habitat for wading birds and other wildlife.

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Purple Martin is the largest of the North American swallows. Most of the Purple Matins who breed in eastern North America probably migrate from South America across the Gulf of Mexico, where they form huge roosts from Texas to Florida, while others migrate over Mexico and through Central America. They y during the day reaching Florida as early as midJanuary and New England in mid-April. These colonial birds roost together by the thousands in late summer. At the end of breeding season, large ocks will gather and make their way back to South America. These medium-sized songbirds have a large head, thick chest and broad, pointed wings. The adult male is blue-black above and below. The adult female is bluish on the back with a dingy gray brown chest, pale, dirty gray belly and gray collar around the neck. The immature Purple Martin has markings similar to the female, but less bluish on the back and its underparts are a dirty white. Their song is a series of musical chirps interspersed with raspy twitters. These aerial insectivores catch a variety of winged insects for food, including large insects, such as dragon ies. They rarely come to the ground to eat. Purple Martins get their water by skimming the surface of the pond or other water body by scooping the water up with their lower bill. Native Americans hung up empty gourds for Purple Martins before Europeans arrived in North America. The Eastern Purple Martins now nest almost exclusively in gourds and man-made boxes. Breeding pairs of Purple Martins will line their nests with soft materials like grass, leaves, paper or mud. Between March and June, four to ve white eggs are laid, which are incubated solely by the female for 15 to 18 days. Both adults feed the young until they are ready to leave the nest when 24 to 28 days old. Purple Martins are being observed throughout inland Florida at a number of locations, including homes and the nest boxes installed by the U.S. Army Corp of Engineers at Franklin Locks, Ortona Locks and the Clewiston Headquarters. Donkey DeliberationsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThere are many stories in the Holy Bible that include donkeys. One donkey actually talked in human words (Numbers 22:21-34). But with Palm Sunday coming up, my thoughts turn to the account of Jesus entering Jerusalem that rst Palm Sunday riding on a donkey. And I wonder what the guy who gave the donkey for Jesus to ride on was thinking. We don't know his name or what he looks like. We only know that Jesus told His disciples that, "If anyone asks you why you are taking the donkeys, say that the Master has need of them, and he will send them at once."(Matthew 21:3) Did this guy just give his animals to someone in need, or did he know it was Jesus who needed the donkeys? Did he worry about getting the donkeys back? I ask these questions because these are questions that would come to my mind if the donkeys were mine. There are times I struggle with what I want or have to give. Realistically, there are times I want to keep my animals to myself for my own use or for those I know and trust. Sometimes, I rationalize not giving by wondering if my giving would really make a difference in the long run. Sometimes I don't give because I'm not sure what to give or how to give, or I get busy and put things on the back burner. And then there are the times God calls to my heart and I respond, feeling honored that a gift of mine would be used to carry Jesus forward and make a difference in the life of another. The reality is that all of us have a donkey. You and I each have something in our lives which, if given back to God, could move Jesus and His story further down the road. Maybe you could reach out and help a friend or a neighbor, or encourage a child. Maybe you can sing, or hug, or teach a class, or speak a foreign language. Maybe you can give a cold glass of water to someone who is thirsty. Maybe you can write a check. Whichever, that's your donkey. Whichever, it could be that God wants to mount your donkey and enter into another place, another situation, another heart. Corrie Ten Boom was a famous Christian whose testimony of suffering in Nazi concentration camps and God's grace through it all touched millions of lives. Following a ceremony in which Corrie was given an honorary degree, a reporter asked her if it was dif cult remaining humble while hearing so much acclaim. She replied immediately, "Young man, when Jesus Christ rode into Jerusalem on Palm Sunday on the back of a donkey, and everyone was waving palm branches and throwing garments in the road and singing praises, do you think that for one moment it ever entered the head of that donkey that any of that was for him?" She continued, "If I can be the donkey on which Jesus Christ rides in His glory, I give Him all the praise and all the honor."Trust Quartet: May 3CLEWISTON Community Christian Church welcomes the Trust Quartet on May 3 at 7 p.m. All are welcome, you are only a visitor once.

Perched on a levee with an injured wing and alligators watching it from a canal below, the osprey could y no more than two feet at a time. South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) wildlife coordinator Brian Garrett had to act quickly to capture the injured raptor before the avian predator became reptile prey last Thursday morning in Western Palm Beach County. With a well-timed grab at the edge of the canal, Garrett secured the adult bird. The large raptor, which appeared to be otherwise healthy, was transported from Stormwater Treatment Area 2 to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter. The bird was being treated there Friday for a broken left wing. “It’s a good day when you can go out and rescue one,” said Garrett. As a biologist for 17 years at SFWMD, Garrett’s wildlife surveys and knowledge assist water and land managers in protecting and restoring wildlife species, such as the endangered Everglade snail kite, gopher tortoises and manatees. The injured osprey will be rehabilitated, although it is too early to tell whether it will y again, according to the sanctuary’s executive director, David Hitzig. It was also unknown what caused the wing fracture, but it could have been anything from a collision with a tree to a hard water landing, he said. “It’s got a lot of spunk,” Hitzig said. “Hopefully, the bird can be released back into the wild when it’s healed.” Sanctuary of cials said the type of fracture the osprey suffered typically takes six to eight weeks to heal. The bird, whose gender has not yet been determined, would then be transferred to a ight enclosure to evaluate its potential to be released back into the wild. Raptor rescues are uncommon by District staff on SFWMD-managed lands. “It’s the rst time I’ve ever had to rescue a raptor in the eld,” Garrett said. While the rescue was rare, ospreys are the most common raptors on District public lands because the species are piscivores, meaning they almost exclusively hunt and consume sh. Thus, the birds require nearby bodies of water that contain plenty of sh on which to forage. SFWMD manages nearly 1.5 million acres of public land, including 57,000 acres of Stormwater Treatment Areas. The primary job of these wetlands is to improve Everglades water quality, but they have also become a haven for wildlife, especially birds, because of their prime habitat and availability of food. Populations of ospreys in North America have experienced a dramatic comeback since the use of the pesticide DDT was banned in the United States in 1972. There were fewer than 8,000 breeding pairs of ospreys in 1981. By 1994, the number of osprey had risen to 14,246 pairs. For more information, visit Busch Wildlife Sanctuary at www.buschwildlife.org.

Don’t forget to look out for these slow-moving reptiles with their bony-plated shells and elephantine legs. They leave their burrows in search of green plants to eat and a tortoise to become their mate. From now through May, females will be laying eggs the size of ping-pong balls in the sandy apron outside their burrows. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect the state’s gopher tortoises. If a gopher tortoise is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety – but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading and do not put this terrestrial animal into the water. People also can help by downloading and using a new smartphone app to report to the FWC when and where they spot gopher tortoises. The free “Florida gopher tortoise” app recently became available on iPhone and Android. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its burrow, the photo and its GPS coordinates will be sent automatically to the FWC. App-generated data collected by citizen scientists will help guide conservation of this threatened species. Biological information and a quiz testing the user’s knowledge of the only tortoise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWC’s Gopher Tortoise Management Plan spells out goals and actions to protect the tortoises, their burrows sheltering hundreds of other species and their habitat. Prescribed burning is critical to maintaining the sandy, open elds and forests, and the growth of softstemmed plants that tortoises need to survive. To access the management plan, go to MyFWC. com/Wildlife and select “Managed Species.” People can report injured or dead gopher tortoises to the FWC by calling 850-921-1030 during weekdays or by contacting the Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-3922. Harming a gopher tortoise, its burrows or eggs is against the law. Look for Gopher Tortoises Out on a Spring Stroll

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 10, 2014 The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has begun preliminary work to repair dams along portions of the federally designated “Wild and Scenic” Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River. The dams help hold water at levels that bene t the diverse ecology of the river’s ecosystem. “The District continues working to protect and restore the Loxahatchee River,” said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory. “Last year’s purchase of the Mecca property for water storage, plus upgrades to these dams, will provide bene ts to the river for many years to come.” The Masten and Lainhart dams are small but essential features along the Wild and Scenic River. By holding back water and maintaining levels that bene t native plants and wildlife, the scenic river’s ecosystem can thrive. Along its oodplain are vegetation such as bald cypress and mangroves and wildlife such as alligators, turtles and otters. Work will include resetting cypress logs that give the dams a natural look and repairs to the embankments to prevent water from owing around the structures. Surveyors have already begun marking trees with ags to identify their locations. This helps engineers plan and carry out the improvements in a way that protects the surrounding ecosystem. Along with the repair work, the District will improve recreational access and safety at the canoe and kayak dockage at the dams. Historically, canoeing has been the main recreational use of the Northwest Fork and its surrounding area. Other popular activities include kayaking, shing, nature study, wildlife observation and photography.Loxahatchee HistoryOn May 17, 1985, 7.6 miles of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River were designated as a national Wild and Scenic River. Under the National Wild and Scenic River Act of 1968, freeowing rivers with outstanding scenic, recreational, sh and wildlife, historic and cultural values are designated for preservation for the enjoyment and bene t of present and future generations. The Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River — from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Martin County — was the rst Florida river to receive this designation. Since 1985, the SFWMD has acquired more than 20,000 acres of land in the Loxahatchee River’s corridor and tributary watersheds for preservation and restoration. Through the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative, numerous agencies and local governments have worked together on 65 habitat and water quality restoration projects, most of which have been completed. Nearly $18 million in legislative appropriations have been matched by more than $23 million in local funds to accomplish this work. In October 2013, the SFWMD Governing Board approved a $26 million investment to acquire the 1,800-acre Mecca property from Palm Beach County. Located west of the Beeline Highway, the parcel will become a shallow-water storage area capable of sending water east through the C-18 canal and into the Northwest Fork of the river. Key objectives are to supplement ows during the dry season and help prevent saltwater intrusion into the lower reaches of the river. Repairing Dams Along ‘Wild and Scenic’ Loxahatchee RiverWork will bene t the ecology of the river and improve recreational access SUBMITTED PHOTO Local birders will be presenting the April Hendry-Glades Audubon program.

1 Going Out: A guide to area entertainment and attractions April 2014 South Florida makes photography easySouth Florida is a great place to be a photographer. Whether you enjoy photographing wildlife, people or sports, you don’t h ave to travel far to nd a great place to take photos. W e asked readers to share some of their photos and their favorite local spots for photo shoots. Photographer Waddy Thompson seems to nd beauty everywhere. He captured magic in a rainbow over cow pens in Felda. (His photo is used for the banner at the top this page.) Tina Shepherd said she loves working with children and animals. “LaBelle is perfect to photograph gorgeous horses,” she said. She often uses LaBelle’s Barron Park and the Caloosahatchee River for See PHOTOGRAPHY — Page 2photo shoots. “You can’t buy a backdrop like the ones we h ave here in L aBelle, the green grass looking over the water with a picture perfect bridge in background. I h ave people travel from all over to get those photos,” Tina said. Photographer Kurt Anderson enjoys taking photos in the Taylor Creek Stormwater Treatment Area just north of the City of Okeechobee. He said he nds photo opportunities all around him. He has even stopped on the tree-lined Martin County Road 714 (also known as Martin Grade). “I travel this road often to go to Stuart and I risked my life to stop and take a shot from the middle of the road!” he recalled. P h o t o g r a p h e r S t e v e n B a l l w o n r s t Photographer Steven Ball won rst p l a c e i n t h e c o n t e s t T h e T a y l o r C r e e k place in the contest.

This photo was t a k e n o n L a k e O k e e c h o b e e n e a r taken on Lake Okeechobee, near C l e w i s t o n Clewiston. Other photographers agreed the Taylor Creek STA is lled with “photo ops.” “I always nd something to photograph when I visit Taylor Creek STA,” said Steve Ball. Ginger Peacock also frequents the Taylor Creek STA. “I love taking pictures here, because of all the wildlife and jus t the sheer beauty of the place. Every time I go there is always something di eren t to see,” she commented. Kelly Erskin loves taking photos on and of the Caloosahatchee River. “It’s the most serene and calming place to be after a long day at school,” she said. T i n a S h e p h a r d w a s t a k i n g Tina Shephard was taking p h o t o s i n a p a s t u r e n e a r photos in a pasture near L a B e l l e a n d c o u l d n t r e s i s t LaBelle and couldn't resist t h i s c o w w h o s e e m e d t o this cow who seemed to l o v e t h e c a m e r a love the camera.

Lake Okeechobee is also popular with photographers. Mina Coleman said she nds plenty of photo subjects on the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail. “I enjoy taking pictures there because the scenery changes every day,” she said. Steve Hayes takes photos from his airboat, which allows him to reach parts of the lake many people never see. Jesse G. Norman likes taking photos at the Okee-Tantie Recreation Area, also on the Big O. “I love this area because it has become my adoptive home for more than ve years now, and I plan on staying until my last,” he said. Ginnie Fountain said she loves sitting at the dike and taking pictures. The Florida light, wildlife and scenery means some photographers don’t even h ave to leave their own homes to get great photos. Michael Muros won the Best of Show award for photography at the 2014 Okeechobee County Fair with a photo of starlings taken in his own front yard. Joe Allen said he enjoys photographing the sandhill cranes and wildlife near his home at Seminole Cove. Sporting events are great opportunities for action shots. For action shots that also showcase South Florida history, check out local rodeos which can be found in Clewiston, LaBelle, Moore Haven, Okeechobee and Brighton Seminole Reservation.

By Melissa BeltzSpecial to the Glades County Democrat CLEWISTON — A young mother of two w as killed and two others were seriously injured after a two-vehicle accident occurred last year on April 3, 2013. The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the driver who allegedly caused the accident was arrested on charges of vehicular homicide on April 3, 2014. In the initial report released by FHP last year, of cers responded to an accident at the intersection of U.S. 27 and County Road 720 at around 12:13 p.m. According to the report, a 2009 Nissan Murano was traveling eastbound on U.S. 27 near County Road 720 when it failed to see the 2004 Ford Explorer traveling in front of it. The Murano, driven by Berta Alicia Villafuerte, 27, of Moore Haven, reportedly tried to swerve out of the way to avoid hitting the SUV, which caused the front left side of the Murano to hit the right rear side of the Explorer. As a result, it was reported that the Explorer began rotating counter clockwise ahead of the Murano, whose driver lost control of her vehicle, causing it to hit the right rear side of the Explorer a second time. The Explorer overturned as it hit the grassy median separating the east and westbound lanes of U.S. 27, and came to a nal rest on its roof, according to the report. The Murano reportedly overturned on the grass y median, as well, and came to nal rest facing upright.

patrol deputies. In the jail, guards will be reduced from 80 to 14. It is expected that only minor things need to be done at the old jail to get it ready to house local inmates. The repair of dispatch and 911 systems, some wiring improvements, some general cleaning, and minor repairs are needed. He will also evacuate the administrative of ces at the sheriffs of ce that house records and nance, the investigative division and other of ces. "This isn't because of how we ran the facility. This is about Democrats in Washington not wanting to arrest people who are here illegally," he said. Sheriff Whiddon said the ICE of cial statement was there are no criminal aliens in the United States. We know that is a lie, but that is what they are saying, the sheriff continued. The sheriff said they will scale back and cut costs without compromising employee safety at the facility. He suggested the administrative of ce could relocate to the health department nearby to save the county money. County Commissioner Russell Echols said there are no alternatives because there are fewer inmates and there is no other source of inmates that could be housed at the facility. Sheriff Whiddon said he expects to get some federal inmates, from those arrested by U.S. Marshals, at the old jail to help pay the bills. He said he was also forced to layoff employees in 2013 due to budget problems. Commissioner Echols said it was prudent by the county to keep the old jail after the privatized detention center was built because it now can be used. He defended the management of the current jail. "Quite frankly if you want to be a criminal in the United States, there is a better chance of not being prosecuted if you are not a citizen of the country and that is a sad situation," he said. The old jail is currently being used for county storage. Sheriff Whiddon said he could provide labor to help clean up the building. Mr. Echols said the county has money in their 1-cent sales tax fund that is available to pay for any improvements or repairs needed. Sheriff Whiddon said he will sell off a lot of equipment to help generate revenue if it was purchased with forfeiture dollars. The U.S. Marshals pay $55 per day for incarceration. Sheriff Whiddon said he could average up to 25 inmates that would generate about $500,000 per year. Commissioner Echols said the decision had to be made by ICE. They mulled over ideas in the past few weeks in anticipation of the decision by ICE. "They knew they either had to send us inmates or we would close down," he added. The Glades facility received the over ow from the Krome Facility in Miami and that facility is about 150 inmates below capacity right now. "It's an election year, and they (the Feds) don't want to make anybody mad, and they're not doing a whole lot. I just can't last until after the election, the bills would just be too high," Sheriff Whiddon added. Commissioner Echols said there was never a contract that included X amount of dollars and in his view the county shouldn't have gotten involved in the ICE facility. He said it should have been a private venture. He said the county should x the old jail so it is adequate. Commissioner Echols said the county has the money available to do the project due to years of prudent, conservative spending policies. In other business at the BOCC meeting, the board honored graduating seniors in the class of 2014 at Moore Haven Junior Senior High School and Glades County teacher of the year Nicole Davis. Chairman Donna Storter Long handed out certi cates to the students. A public hearing was held to hear comment on a $1.15 million dollar grant application to provide water, sewer, and street improvements for the proposed automotive travel center and logistics training center to be developed along U.S. 27. There were no comments at the hearing. The grant could be funded by the Florida Small Cities Community Development Block grant program. The commission also proclaimed May 18-24, 2014 as National Public Works week. The proclamation is to honor the hard work of employees who maintain facilities and public roads. County Manager Paul Carlisle saluted the work the County Road Department accomplishes each work day. Chairman Long said if public works didn't do a good job, county commissioners would be bombarded with complaints. She saluted longtime public works Director Avant Brown for the work he and his staff accomplish. The donation of a 1990 Ford re truck from Cape Coral was accepted and was assigned to the Muse Volunteer Fire Company. The commission approved an extension of time to apply for a CDBG to provide handicapped ramps for various county facilities including the library in Moore Haven. The courthouse phone system was recently out for two days due to a power surge. The county has negotiated with CenturyLink to provide high speed internet and other services. The county would save dollars in the long run according to Mr. Carlisle. "Our system is internet based so when it's down the county government is shut down," he told commissioners. The county attorney was assigned to negotiate a nal contract with CenturyLink. A pedestrian cross over on the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail over Harney Pond canal is being developed. It is the one location in Glades County where pedestrians must leave the trail to continue their journey. The Florida Department of Transportation has expressed support to the county to build a pedestrian bridge cross over in Lakeport for the trail. Mr. Carlisle said he intends to get endorsement from the Florida Heartland Rural Economic Development Initiative on this project. Commissioner Tim Stanley raised a concern about the county owning this pedestrian walkway and the related insurance liability. He wanted to know the county's liability should a boat strike the walkway. Mr. Stanley said the original plan had the FDOT building the pedestrian walkway. The county will have to pay for maintenance. He predicted a pedestrian walkway would also be needed at Indian Prairie Canal. Mrs. Storter said she recalled the count y devoted impact fees to build a pedestrian bridge on the dike in Lakeport. She wanted to make sure they followed through with their legal obligations to spend the impact fees within the ve years. The commission voted to seek matching dollars to build the walkway without opposition. The commission voted March 24 to end the probation period for Mr. Carlisle. Commissioners approved an amendment to his employment contract Tuesday to of ciall y end his probation and also approved some insurance changes. His life insurance coverage limit is equal to one year's salary. He also has the option of not participating in the county health insurance program and be paid 50 percent of that cost on a monthl y basis. Mr. Carlisle said a recent trip to lobby in Tallahassee for funding for a job training center went well. He said they might not get funds this year but have a better chance o f funding next year. County Commissioner Paul Beck was absent due to illness and was hospitalized on Tuesday, according to his colleagues. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 10, 2014 18 Answers to the March 27 Crossword. JAILContinued From Page 1 The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jacksonville District will reduce the amount of w ater currently owing from Lake Okeechobee to the Caloosahatchee River. Beginning Wednesday (April 9), the new target ow from the lake to the Caloosahatchee is a 10-day average of 650 cubic feet per second (cfs) as measured at W.P. Franklin Lock (S-79) near Fort Myers. Local runoff outside the lake into the Caloosahatchee River could cause ows to exceed this target. The target ow for the St. Lucie Lock and Dam (S-80) is unchanged at 0 cfs, although local basin runoff from the St. Lucie Canal will continue to be allowed to pass through the St. Lucie Lock as necessary. "The lake level dropped into the Base Flow Sub-Band of the 2008 LORS (Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule) over the weekend," said Jorge Tous, chief of the Water Management Section for Jacksonville District. "The change in ows mirrors the 2008 LORS guidance for the lake level at this point in the dry season." On Tuesday, the lake stage was 13.45 feet and has been on a slow downward trend over the past month. The Corps will closely monitor conditions and adjust ows as necessary to balance the competing needs and purposes of Lake Okeechobee. For more information on water level and ow data for Lake Okeechobee, visit the Corps' water management page at the Jacksonville District website: http://w3.saj.usace.army.mil/h2o/reports. htm Corps to reduce ows from Lake Okeechobee into river A gopher tortoise strolling across a road or through a backyard or eld is a common sight during spring in Florida. Yet as tortoises become increasingly active this time of year, they are vulnerable to being struck by vehicles and injured or killed. Don't forget to look out for these slowmoving reptiles with their bony-plated shells and elephantine legs. They leave their burrows in search of green plants to eat and a tortoise to become their mate. From now through May, females will be laying eggs the size of ping-pong balls in the sandy apron outside their burrows. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages drivers to slow down on highways to help protect the state's gopher tortoises. If a gopher tortoise is crossing the road, it is OK to pick it up and move it to safety but keep it pointed in the direction it was heading and do not put this terrestrial animal into the water. People also can help by downloading and using a new smartphone app to report to the FWC when and where they spot gopher tortoises. The free "Florida gopher tortoise" app recently became available on iPhone and Android. When users of the app take a photograph of a tortoise or its burrow, the photo and its GPS coordinates will be sent automatically to the FWC. App-generated data collected by citizen scientists will help guide conservation of this threatened species. Biological information and a quiz testing the user's knowledge of the only tortoise east of the Mississippi River also are included in the app. The FWC's Gopher Tortoise Management Plan spells out goals and actions to protect the tortoises, their burrows sheltering hundreds of other species and their habitat.
