The bill, sponsored by Representative Clay Ingram and Senator Rob Bradley, will now head to Governor Rick Scott. The bill adds six additional substances to Schedule 1 of controlled substances and advances Attorney General Bondi’s mission to keep these drugs away from children and the community. “This legislation gives law enforcement and prosecutors the tools they need to keep dangerous synthetic drugs off of store shelves in Florida and out of the hands of our youth,” said Attorney General Pam Bondi. “I thank Representative Clay Ingram, Senator Rob Bradley and both chambers for their support of our efforts to rid the state of synthetic drugs.” The Controlled Substance Bill would also add three extremely lethal synthetic compounds, which are commonly found in the street drug “molly,” to the traf cking statute.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 4 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonChimney Swifts breed in the United States and southern Canada. Chimney Swifts are usually found in Florida from March until midOctober. They y long distances to their wintering grounds in western Brazil, eastern Peru and other locations in South America. Chimney Swift look like a " ying cigar" when soaring overhead. This small bird has a sooty gray to black elongated body with a slightly lighter or even silvery gray throat. They have large eyes. Chimney Swifts are not capable of perching on a branch or walking on the ground like other birds. They have extremely short legs, hooks on their tiny claws and stiff spiked tail feathers that are adapted for clinging to vertical surfaces. Their high-pitched rapid chirping twitters are often heard when they are in ight. These rapidly ying birds spend most of their time in the air when they aren't nesting or roosting at night. In ight they catch insects, drink, bathe and collect nesting materials. The birds nest in chimneys, rock walls and buildings. The half-cup-shaped nest is made from small sticks which are glued together, and secured to a rock wall or chimney with their saliva. Both parents help incubate the clutch of three to seven white glossy eggs for 19-21 days. Chicks are capable of ight at 28-30 days of age, but may leave the nest after three weeks and cling to the wall.Information If you would like to participate in a bird trip to STA5 e-mail Margaret England.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health will recognize the 20th anniversary of National Infant Immunization Week April 26 May 3, 2014. The Department reminds parents about the bene ts of immunizing children against vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunizations are one of the most effective ways to protect infants and children from potentially serious diseases. Parents should discuss immunization choices with their child's healthcare provider. "Ensuring that our children are vaccinated at an early age is essential to the health and wellbeing of Florida's kids," said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Of cer for Children's Medical Services. "We encourage parents to follow the recommended immunization schedule, providing immunity early in life, before infants and children may be exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases." Provisional 2013 data from CDC indicate more than 24,000 cases of whooping cough (pertussis) occurred in the US, including 9 deaths. All of the deaths were in infants younger than 3 months old. Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease. Although there has been a decrease in incidence since 2012, case numbers of pertussis in the US remain high. The provisional data for 2013 indicate Florida had 729 cases of pertussis, including one death. This represents an increase in the number of pertussis cases in Florida over 2012. Along with immunizations for infants, adults who care for infants should receive a Tdap booster to ensure that illness is not transferred from caregiver to baby. Through collaboration with health care professionals around our state, we can combat and decrease the unnecessary harm caused by this disease each year by continuing to immunize children and adults. For information about immunizations, please visit www.immunize orida.org or contact your county health department. Health care providers may also sign up to access the statewide immunization registry at http://www. shots.com/ to keep an online record of their patients' immunization records. The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts. Follow us on Twitter at @HealthyFla and on Facebook.

A National Day of Prayer: Keep Praying, God AnswersBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThere is a call for a National Day for Prayer, May 1. It coincides with the publication of the news for today and is worthy of a national response. Many will not make it to the city-wide celebration but, hopefully, will take a moment out to talk with the Creator-Sustainer-Redeemer of the universe. Very simply, God answers prayers. He does not always give the answer wanted, nor does He alter the way things are meant to go just for our personal convenience. The prayer that we were given was “…thy will be done…” and not “just mine.” If they are one and the same, all well and good. If not, then I go back to what one of my mentors said about God answering prayer: “keep praying until you get it right!” Maybe we pray for the wrong things, maybe our interests get in the way of God’s purpose. Maybe we are asking for things that are sel sh or ignore that there are others involved, who also have their prayers that differ from ours. Nevertheless, when I keep at it, something will eventually come to provide the answer. Our call is to pray for “our daily bread” and not the whole grocery store! One thing at a time, enough for the present need, tomorrow will be different and with different challenges. In the meantime, keep the line open. I remember hearing years ago that God answers prayers in one of three ways: Yes, No, or Not Now. I also remember hearing “Prayer changes things, or you will change.” Many of the things I prayed for didn’t come as I wanted; they came in a different fashion. I am the better for it; God knew what He was doing and I have re ected on one of the works of a concentration camp survivor who knew of the depths of life and tragedies of human existence. This physician advised that instead of saying “It can’t happen to me,” say instead “It shall happen to me.” He brought home “….thy will be done…” and forced me to face the possibility that the future is unknown for us but that many of the things we’re afraid of are not the end. In the meantime, I work to keep in touch with the one who directs, intervenes, comforts, teaches, listens and heals. A group of farmers immigrated to a rural area to pioneer and develop the agriculture in a wild country. It was hard work. They knew it was going to be hard, but the rocky soil wasn’t really conducive to farming, and many of them decided to return home. The loss of numbers and the strangeness of the land was depressing to those who stayed. Things weren’t going well. One farmer stayed and prayed that God would show him the way. Over time, more and more moved away and conditions became more and more dif cult. Machinery would break down and parts were hard to get, rain didn’t come when needed, crops seemed to fail. Nevertheless, staying and praying were the order of the day for the one who nally remained. Now, on top of all of the other hardships, snakes started to invade the farm. The one who stayed prayed and uttered “God, you must have a purpose in all of this” and was about to throw in the towel when someone pointed out that snake venom was used in medicine. A little investigation and contacts with pharmaceutical houses brought a surprising response. Yes, they were interested; yes, the venom had medicinal uses; yes, they would pay well for the “harvest.” Now farming took a different turn, another problem became an answer and gave meaning to all of the struggles. Harvesting was to be re-learned and humanity would be served in a most unexpected way with greater bene ts to people than ever had been thought of in the past. Prayers were answered and that realization made all the difference. Keep at it, keep in touch, “…thy will… it will be done” and it will be of God, and good. 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.Gospel ConcertCLEWISTON — Jurnee Productions Presents: Le’Andria Johnson (award-winning gospel artist), Cassandra Stewart (recording artist) and Lele Patrice (recording artist) in a gospel concert known as Inspiration Celebration VIII.

Orvell Howard, Chair Hendry County Local Planning Agency Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 6 Special to the Glades County Democrat Florida Forest Service crews were busy ghting four wild res in Glades County on A pril 29. A re was reported at 2:10 p.m. near Charlotte/Glades County border off Highw ay 74. The re was apparently started by a lightning strike in an area of grass and atw oods. Approximately 300 acres burned. The w ind carried sparks, igniting leaf litter on the ground to create "spot" wild res as far as three-quarters of a mile from the main re. The Florida Forest Service Huey Helicopter dropped 27 bucket drops at 320 gallons per load to contain the re. The re was contained at 6:47 p.m. While on routine patrol, FL Forest Service xed wing pilot identi ed three more wild res that same day. The pilot radioed dispatch and re ghters from Florida Forest Service and Glades County Fire Rescue quickly responded. At 2:58 p.m., a lightning strike started a wild re on private property near Squirrel Island. According to the Forest Service, the re started on private property and then spread into Squirrel Island and areas around Fisheating Creek. The blaze consumed planted pine and eucalyptus. Grass above the waterline in Fisheating Creek also ignited. The re burned 600 acres. It was contained around midnight. The Florida Forest Service Huey Helicopter dropped 29 bucket loads at 320 gallons per load to ght the re. A re was spotted in west of US 27, just south of Venus, at 3:21 p.m. The re burned 75 acres of planted pine. The re was contained at 8:07 p.m. The source of the re is under investigation. Another wild re was spotted at 3:31 p.m., also west of US 27. This re was started by lightning, according to the report. Approximately 200 acres of planted pine burned. The re was contained at 7:10 p.m.Be re safe\Where there is re, there is ultimately smoke, and smoke does not mix well with safe driving. Unforseen changes in weather may create conditions where visibility on roadways is seriously impaired. Under these conditions drivers need to be cautious. The best decision is not to drive in fog or smoke. If you must drive under these conditions, there are actions that every driver should take to protect themselves and their passengers: Slow down! Use windshield wipers in heavy fog. Turn on your low-beam headlights. Report the hazards to 911. Residents in Glades County can protect their homes and families by Keeping their yard lean, clean, and green. Lean Trim vegetation away from home. Clean No accumulation of dead vegetation or ammable debris. Green Less ammable plants that are healthy, watered and green during dry season. If you live near nature, then you can be at risk for wild re danger. Take the time to remove anything that will burn from your roof and gutters. That includes pine needles, leaves, small twigs, and palm fronds. Be sure there is nothing ammable against the sides of your home. Be sure to use plants that are not highly ammable around your home. Keep the area within 30 feet of your home picked up, mowed, and watered within the guidelines of local water management.

Unless garbage is in a secure trash can with a locking lid, it may prove all too tempting for wild animals such as raccoons, coyotes, opossums, skunks, foxes and wild hogs. Some wild animals, such as raccoons, have even been known to open a can with a locking lid. Coyotes and raccoons have proven to have little fear of humans and it is not uncommon to nd them in residential areas in South Florida. When wild animals knock over trash cans and spread the garbage around the neighborhood, it is more than just an eyesore. It could also be a health hazard for humans and their pets. Wild animals can carry diseases such as rabies. Pets that encounter these animals could become infected, and could in turn pass that disease to their owners. Spilled garbage may also attract rodents, which may harbor disease-carrying eas. To avoid attracting wild animals, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission advises residents to use precautions to avoid attracting these nuisance animals. Don't allow your dogs to roam freely, especially at night. Most interactions between dogs and coyotes occur between dusk and dawn. A well-maintained dog fence may help keep wildlife out of your yard as well as keep your dogs at home. Check the bottom of the fence regularly to make sure there are no holes that would allow a coyote or other wild animal to get underneath. Do not leave pet food outside at night as this can attract wild animals. Feed pets indoors or bring in pet bowls after feeding. Secure household garbage in a shed, garage or wildlife-resistant container. Putting garbage is plastic bags in an open garbage can is like ringing the dinner bell for raccoons, coyotes and other wildlife in the area, as well as feral cats and dogs. Clean grills and store them in a locked, secure place. Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground. Rotting fruit may attract raccoons, hogs and bears, and when they run out of fruit, they will continue to forage for food in the area. Garbage may attract wild animals Legion building available for rentThe American Legion Building in Moore Haven is available for rent.

Schools win grants from CenturyLink Foundation WINTER HAVEN — The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., today announced that it has acquired a majority interest in Blue Lake Citrus Products of Winter Haven, Fla. The deal positions Blue Lake Citrus for signi cant growth, increased reach, and an expansion to their brand portfolio. The investment also increases the Tribe’s citrus industry investments and growing citrus holdings, which have grown steadily over the past few years. The acquisition further strengthens the Tribe’s business partnership with Noble Produce Holdings, Inc. of Winter Haven, Fla. The Tribe’s business development arm, the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., now owns 60 percent of Blue Lake Citrus Products. Tony Sanchez, President of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., said the expanded partnership positions the Tribe for signi cant growth within the food service and retail channels with pure products that bring awareness to Florida’s agriculture. The Seminole Pride portfolio consists of Noble 100% pure juice, Noble organic juice, Healthy OnThe-Go fruit snacks, OWV natural spring water, and beef. “The Tribe is growing and diversifying its business interests by partnering with local Florida, family companies to strengthen the people and agriculture of Florida,” said Mr. Sanchez. In April of 2013, the Seminole Tribe acquired from Noble Produce Holdings, Inc. a majority interest in Noble Food Service, the sales and marketing division of Blue Lake Citrus Products. That partnership signi cantly expanded the growth of the Seminole Pride and Noble brand of citrus juices throughout the United States and Canada to more conventional and natural grocery stores, restaurants, schools, hotels, hospitals, and catering businesses. Blue Lake Citrus Products also markets bulk juice, citrus oils and other citrus products. “We see our partnership with the Seminole Tribe as the launch platform to signi cantly grow the entire line of Blue Lake products, from bulk to branded. The opportunities are tremendous for Blue Lake,” said Quentin Roe, President of Noble Produce Holdings. “The partnership and capital invested by the Tribe, coupled with their contacts and minority status, create the possibilities for growth and expansion.” When combined with the branded business, the combination of products provides great vertical integration for the Tribe’s citrus grove holdings. Day-to-day operations of the plant will continue to be managed by Morgan Roe, President of Blue Lake Citrus Products. As one measure of the current scope of the operation, the Blue Lake Citrus Products Plant produces about seven million gallons of juice products per year from 1.2 million boxes of citrus fruit, averaging 90 pounds per box. The Seminole Pride and Noble brands are known for their pure tangerine juice but also offer a full beverage portfolio that includes orange, organic orange, tangerine clementine, tangerine guava mango, organic orange tangerine, blood orange, super red grapefruit, organic grapefruit, lemonade, lemon, lime, organic lemonade, organic apple, spring water, and seasonal juices like Pummelo Paradise. The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., the business development arm of the Seminole Tribe, offers premium, Florida products under the Seminole Pride brand, including citrus juices, beef and bottled water. Citrus fruit for the Seminole Pride brand of juices are grown on the Brighton Seminole Reservation, which is northwest of Lake Okeechobee, and at approved groves throughout Florida. The Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., also manufactures and distributes energ y drinks under the Hard Rock Energy brand.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 16 Photo courtesy SFWMDRare whooping crane sightedA rare, endangered whooping crane was recently spotted in Glades County. According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the bird is one of the few surviving cranes from a failed attempt to establish a ock of the endangered birds in Florida. Between 1999 and 2008, 289 captive-bred whooping cranes were released in Florida. Fewer than a dozen birds from that ock are believed to have survived.
