By Tracy RoundsGlades County Democrat The Moore Haven Lady Terriers clinched the regional nals Friday night against St. Pete Christian Barron's, 18-10. The Lady Terriers will advance to play for the state championship title. This is only the second time in school history that the fast pitch girls softball team has advanced to state. The rst time was in 2009. The state championship will be played in Vero Beach. Semi nals will be on Friday, May 9, at 2:20 p.m. against Carlwood. If the Lady Terriers advance, they will play on Saturday, May 10. As the Lady Terriers took the eld for the regional nals, you could feel the excitement in the air. The bleachers were packed full of fans, and chairs were crowded along the fence. Jacqueline Phares, the starting pitcher for the Lady Terriers, didn't disappoint the fans. She started the game off with a bang by striking the rst two batters out. The top of the inning was quickly over with no score from the opposing team. The Lady Terriers too k advantage of mistakes made by St. Pete and scored six runs on three errors, two walks and two hits in the bottom of the rst. Lexi Story #27, and Kalgary #33, Johns both led the inning by hitting singles with Kalgar y also getting an RBI. The second and third innings were both a draw with neither team scoring any runs. In the top of the fourth, the Lady Terriers seemed to be falling apart with ve errors, four walks and three hits allowing the St. Pete Christian Barrons to score 10 runs. Coach Pedro Navarro realized that Jacqueline was struggling, and so he brought Olivi a Everett in to pitch. "I never lost con dence in the girls," Navarro said. "We have never trailed this earl y in the game, and it was good for the team to pull themselves out of a hole. I wish some of the fans had the same con dence in the Lady Terriers that myself and the coaching staff have in them. The con dence that we have in these girls was proven correct in the Lady Terriers head to state nalsSee TERRIERS — Page 15 Goodwill opens in Moore Haven ... Page 24

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Cattle Egret has many common names, including cow crane, cow bird or cow heron. This bird emigrated from Africa to South America, then to Florida. It was rst reported in Florida in Clewiston in 1941 or 1942 (Florida Breeding Bird Atlas). By 1960 it had been reported throughout the state and has had a spectacular range expansion. This medium-sized, stocky, white heron has a sturdy, yellow bill, swollen throat, hunched posture and thick neck. Breeding adults develop orange-buff feathers. Cattle Egrets are more at home foraging in grass than in water. They follow cattle, horses and tractors to catch the insects that are stirred up. Cattle Egret's eyes are positioned for binocular vision during feeding. While at the breeding colony, this species gives a quiet, throaty "rickrick" call, but otherwise it is largely silent. They usually nest in colonies with other wader species. Their nest, a small untidy platform of sticks in a tree or shrub, is constructed by both parents who share incubation duties for their clutch of two to ve blue-green eggs. The eggs hatch in about 23 days. The chicks are born covered with down and are fully feathered in 13-21 days. They edge at about 30 days and become independent at about the 45th day.Information If you would like to join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers on the May 10 or June 14 trip to STA-5, send an e-mail to Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com with your name and contact information, including an emergency cell number for the trip day, the date you would like to go and the number in your party.

A Letter From MommaBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist Church“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones” (Proverbs 17:22). We can be blessed if we don’t take life so seriously that we miss out on laughing often. It’s good medicine for the body and the soul. In that spirit, and in honor of Mother’s Day, let me share with you this letter from someone’s mother. It’s probably not true, but I can imagine it happening! “Dear Son, The other day I went up to the Christian bookstore and found ‘Honk if you love Jesus’ bumper sticker. I had just come from an uplifting prayer meeting at the church and felt inspired to buy the sticker and put it on my bumper. Boy, I’m glad I did! You won’t believe the uplifting experience I had as a result of doing this! “I picked up Keven and several of his teenage friends after school and headed home. I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, so lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, that I hadn’t noticed the light had changed. It’s a good thing the guy behind me read my bumper sticker and loves Jesus, because if he hadn’t honked, I’d never have noticed! “He must have really loved Jesus because he kept honking like crazy and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, ‘For the love of GOD! GO!’ What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! “Soon everyone started honking, as well! I just leaned out of my window and started waving and smiling at all these loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love! There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a ‘sunny beach.’ I saw another guy with Texas license plates waving in a funny way with one nger stuck up in the air. “When I asked Kevin and the other teenagers in the back seat what that meant, one said that it was probably a Texas good luck sign or something. Wanting to be neighborly, I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign back. The boys with me in the car burst out laughing. Why, even they were enjoying this religious experience! “A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking toward me. I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but that was when I noticed the light had changed. So, I waved to all my sisters and brothers, grinning, and drove on through the intersection. I noticed I was the only car that got through before the light changed again. I felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared, so I slowed the car down, leaned out of the window and gave them all the Texas good luck sign one last time as I drove away. “Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks. Love, Mom.” Many of us have had good mothers or mothering types who have in uenced us in a positive way. Some have not. But even those whose mothers weren’t that great can still celebrate a great achievement of their mother – their birth! Furthermore, we can all learn from women, mothers, sisters, daughters and wives; even more so when these women are Christians. A godly mother is priceless. To all mothers everywhere, to future mothers and mothers past, and for those special mothers with no children of their own but are or have been mothers to the children of others: We thank God for you, for all that you do and are. We love you with all our hearts!Christian Fellowship ScholarshipCLEWISTON — Five separate $500 general scholarships will be awarded to local students.

AMERICAN SUGAR ALLIANCEAmerica’s sugar producers on March 28, asked the United States government to take corrective action against Mexico’s sugar industry for dumping subsidized sugar onto the U.S. market and in icting harm on U.S. growers and taxpayers. The antidumping and countervailing duty petitions led with the U.S. International Trade Commission and U.S. Department of Commerce allege that the Mexican industry has shipped sugar to the United States at dumping margins of 45 percent or more and has received substantial subsidies from Mexican federal and state governments. All told, these actions will cost U.S. sugar producers nearly $1 billion in net income for the 2013/2014 crop year, according to the lings. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) “gives Mexico the right to export sugar to the United States on a tariff-free and quotafree basis—but that does not give the Mexican industry the right to export its surplus to the U.S. market at dumped prices, nor does it permit the [Mexican government] to subsidize its sugar industry without regard to the impact of those subsidies on U.S. producers,” the petitions read. The Mexican sugar industry—20 percent of which is owned and operated by the Mexican government—has rapidly increased exports to the United States in recent years, rising from nine percent of the U.S. market in 2011/2012 to nearly 18 percent in 2012/2013. Over that same period, Mexico’s historic surpluses have sent U.S. sugar prices to unsustainable low levels. U.S. prices have been cut in half since late 2011 and are now trading at the same lows of the 1980s. U.S. sugar policy also incurred a taxpayer cost in 2013, after running at no cost for the past 10 years, as the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) sought to steady a market awash in subsidized and dumped Mexican imports. “Secretary Vilsack and his team at the USDA should be commended for their extraordinary actions on behalf of America’s sugar farmers,” said Phillip Hayes, a spokesperson for the American Sugar Alliance. “Unfortunately, the unrelenting ood of dumped and subsidized sugar from Mexico has overwhelmed the U.S. market and USDA’s efforts, and we’ve been left with no alternative but to le these cases.” Hayes noted that this is now a legal dispute and that the facts are straightforward. “The Mexican sugar industry exported dumped and subsidized sugar to the United States, and as a result, it caused tremendous harm to a domestic industry that supports 142,000 jobs,” he said. “U.S. trade laws are designed to stop such injury.” For approximately 100 years, the United States has maintained antidumping and countervailing duty laws to ensure predatory trade practices don’t drive domestic industries out of business. If U.S. producers are harmed, these laws permit duties to be imposed on the imported products that bene t from subsidies or are sold below fair market prices—that is, sold at a price that is lower than the foreign producer’s cost of production or the price they charge in their home market. “We are more ef cient than Mexico’s sugar industry and can compete with anyone in a free market,” Hayes added, “but it is hard for U.S. farmers to succeed when a subsidized industry that is largely government-controlled is dumping its product.” NAFTA explicitly permits the ling of antidumping and countervailing duty cases, and NAFTA countries have led 114 antidumping and countervailing duty cases against each other since the trade deal went into effect. Of these 114 cases, Mexico has led 31 cases against the United States, and the United States has led 30 cases against Mexico, not counting the pending sugar petitions. The sugar producers’ petitions were of cially led by the American Sugar Coalition, which includes: American Sugarbeet Growers Association; American Sugar Cane League; American Sugar Re ning, Inc.; Florida Sugar Cane League; Hawaiian Commercial and Sugar Company; Rio Grande Valley Sugar Growers, Inc.; Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida; and United States Beet Sugar Association. 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 8, 2014 U.S. Sugar Producers File Antidumping, Subsidy Cases Against MexicoUNFORTUNATELY, THE UNRELENTING FLOOD OF DUMPED AND SUBSIDIZED SUGAR FROM MEXICO HAS OVERWHELMED THE U.S. MARKET AND USDA’S EFFORTS, AND WE’VE BEEN LEFT WITH NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO FILE THESE CASES.PHILLIP HAYES Hendry-Glades Audubon will host a covereddish dinner and program on Monday, May 12 at the Cooperative Extension, Dallas Townsend Building, 1085 Pratt Blvd. in LaBelle.

BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthDid you know that May is recognized as Women’s Health Month? When women are fullling the role of caregiver to children, spouses and parents, they often forget to take care of themselves. Here are some key facts and information regarding women’s health. Heart DiseaseHeart disease is responsible for about 29 percent of deaths in women, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC). Many women do not realize they are suffering from heart disease, even though they may show symptoms. of the illness Some of those sypmtoms include being out of breath or not being able to walk up one ight of stairs. Although more men die of heart disease than women, females tend to be under-diagnosed, often to the point that it’s too late to help them once the condition is discovered. Women can reduce their risk of heart disease by modifying their lifestyles to include well-balanced diets and exercise. The American Heart Association lists risk factors for heart disease as:  Increasing age  Smoking  High blood cholesterol  High blood pressure  Physical inactivity  Obesity and being overweight  Diabetes Breast CancerBreast cancer is the most common cancer in women. It is second to lung cancer as the leading cause of death for women. Experts say the fear of breast cancer can sometimes be exaggerated, stopping women from going to their doctors for screening, or pushing women to make rash decisions about mastectomies, when they may not be necessary. The American Cancer Society lists the following as risk factors for breast cancer:  Increasing age  Genes. Nearly ve percent to 10 percent of breast cancer is linked to mutations in certain genes  Family history of the disease  Personal history of the disease  Race. White women have a slightly greater risk of getting breast cancer compared with African-American women. Yet African-Americans have a greater chance of dying from this disease.  Early onset of menstruation (before age 12) or menopause after age 55  Not having children  Too much alcohol  Poor diet  Obesity Stephen F. Sener, MD, president of the American Cancer Society, recommends controlling your weight, exercising, quitting smoking and talking to your doctor about your risk and appropriate screening for breast cancer. He also says to keep risk factors in perspective. “Just because your mother didn’t have breast cancer, it does not mean you are immune to this problem,” says Sener. At the same time, it’s also important to note that some women who have one or more risk factors never get breast cancer.OsteoporosisHunched backs, back pain and frailty used to be things older women had to accept before doctors knew anything more about osteoporosis. Now, there are steps women and girls can take to avoid such problems. Osteoporosis threatens 44 million Americans, of which 68 percent are women, reports the National Osteoporosis Foundation. Osteoporosis is largely preventable. The behaviors that women develop in their childhood, in their adolescence and in their early adult years really play a signi cant role in the development of the disease. That’s because bodies build up most of bone mass until age 30. Then new bone stops forming and the focus is then on maintenance of old bone. It is never too late to keep bones strong and avoid fractures. Your body will do what it can to repair bone damage, but you have to provide the tools for it, such as adequate calcium consumption and weight-bearing physical activity. Talk to your doctor about your possible risk of osteoporosis, and what you can do to prevent problems. Risk factors for osteoporosis include:  Increasing age  Small, thin-boned frame  Ethnicity. White and Asian women have the greatest risk  Family history  Sex hormones  Anorexia  Diet low in calcium and vitamin D  Sedentary lifestyle  Smoking  Excessive alcoholDepressionDepression appears to affect more women than men. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that about 12 million women are affected by a depressive disorder each year compared to about six million men. Dorree Lynn, PhD, a psychologist and author of Getting Sane Without Going Crazy, says women need a connection with others in their lives. “They need that sustenance,” says Lynn. “If they don’t have it, they tend to get depressed.” Sometimes, hormonal changes can also trigger the condition, particularly after pregnancy (postpartum) or around menopause. Other risk factors for depression include:  Family history of depression  History of heart problems  Serious chronic illness  Marital problems  Substance abuse  Use of drugs that could trigger depression, such as medicines for high blood pressure or seizures  A stressful life event, such as job loss or death  Diseases that could trigger depression, such as anemia and thyroid disease  Recent serious illness or surgery  Childhood history of physical or sexual abuse  Being a worrier or being overly anxious  Having an eating disorder or an anxiety disorder To help reduce risk of depression, nd reasons to get up in the morning. Things such as work, community, love, pets and volunteering can be good reasons.

Healthy Families and Kiwanis is a natural partnership because both share a common mission to improve the lives of Florida’s most vulnerable children through parent education and support. In scal year 2012-2013, over 49,200 Florida children, almost half of them under the age of ve, were abused and neglected at the hands of their caregivers. An average 135 children are abused and neglected every day and an average of two children die every week at the hands of their abusers. These tragic statistics are heartbreaking reminders of why Kiwanis’ partnership with Healthy Families Florida is so important.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 8, 2014 10Bassmaster’s 100 Best Bass Lakes Of 2014 announcedBIRMINGHAM, Ala. — Bassmaster Magazine’s third annual ranking of America’s best bass sheries has been announced, and there is a new champion. Lake Michigan’s Sturgeon Bay beat out the hottest sheries in the U.S. to take the No. 1 spot for 2014. Texas and California tied for the states with the most entries on the list; both have eight lakes ranked in the Top 100. Some stalwart lakes fell out of the rankings completely, new lakes were added, and Lake St. Clair, last y ear’s No. 1, fell out of the Top 15. Months of research, catch-rate data and countrywide polling by the publication’s staff created the ultimate bucket list for anglers looking to sh the most productive waters in the nation. Lake Okeechobee was ranked #6, and the review praised the Big O: “The Big O is in the middle of an upswing right now, w hich puts it squarely in the race for the best bass lake on the planet. Recent tournament weights haven’t been the highest we’ve seen on this south Florida shery, but the bass are still there and still as big as ever. Thirty-pluspound limits are still being weighed in consistently, and sh more than 10 pounds are not unusual. Plus, there is something about ipping grass on this historic body of water that elevates your level of anticipation. The size of this shery hinders its production as it can take a while for an inexperienced angler to dial in the bite. But once you unravel the secrets of the Big O, you’ll think it should have been rated much higher than sixth on this list.” The ranking is a little better than last year when it was ranked #8. In 2012, BassMaster ranked Lake Okeechobee as the #2 bass shing lake in the nation. Other Florida sheries ranked in the top 100 included the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes at #21 and the St. Johns River at #48. “The Bassmaster 100 Best Bass Lakes project spawned from our desire to not only identify traditionally good bass sheries, but also to spotlight lakes that are red hot right now,” says Bassmaster Editor James Hall. “Our goal is to make the annual rankings as objective as possible by using the most current data available from state wildlife agencies, current tournament data and expansive polling of the B.A.S.S. membership.” This year, Bassmaster not only asked each state’s wildlife department to list their best lakes, but also asked the department to rank the lakes and offer reasons for each ranking. All the B.A.S.S. Nation presidents and conservation directors ranked the lakes they frequent as well. And to make sure no lakes were overlooked, the 580,000-plus Facebook fans of B.A.S.S., as well as a 3,500-member panel of avid anglers, chimed in. “Our master list included more than 180 great bass sheries. Once we had this foundation, the real work began,” Hall says. Phone calls to area guides, Internet research and angler interviews brought the cream to the top. After identifying the Top 100 sheries, the rankings were sorted by a blue-ribbon panel, including bass pros, outdoor writers and shing industry insiders. Although many rankings were debated by the panel, the top spot was not. “Sturgeon Bay is absolutely on re right now. It is beautiful. The smallmouth here are giant — nobody even blinks at 6-pounders. And it’s not unusual for an angler to catch 60 bass per day. That’s what it takes to be named America’s best bass shery,” Hall says. Lake Amistad, once ranked in the Top 10 on this list, no longer makes the cut. “We aren’t sure what’s to blame for Amistad’s poor production lately, but this typically awesome shery is struggling right now,” Hall explains. Although several new lakes are no w ranked in the Top 100, California’s New Melones Lake made the biggest splash among the newcomers, earning an inaugural ranking of 51. “This lake has become a world-class spotted bass shery, and the current pending world record spotted bass caught there in March (10.48 pounds) puts an exclamation mark on that statement,” Hall says.Big O still among top 10 rankings by BassmasterThe Lake Okeechobee Airboat Association (LOAA), area 4H members and Waste Management partnered to clean up the lake on Sunday, April 27, in honor of Earth Day. Okeechobee 4-H Sharp Shooters Club A dvisors and Lake Okeechobee Airboat Association President Jeff Brockway helped coordinate the project. LOAA provided airboats and transported 4Hers, ages 8 to 18 out on the lake to collect garbage. Members set out at 8:30 a.m. and returned at noon. A contest was held to see w hich team collected the most garbage. The group lead by Jeff Sumner won rst place. “Learning about earth day with our club members and helping our environment at the same time is a very rewarding experience for all,” said Carrie Muldoon. After the clean up the members enjoyed a lunch provided by the 4-H club and took home a Waste Management goody bag with information on “Recycle Often, Recycle Right” tips, a souvenir and treats for their efforts.

About.com offers the following descriptions of different massage styles.  Swedish massage is the most common type of massage therapy in the United States. Massage therapists use long smooth strokes, kneading, and circular movements on super cial layers of muscle using massage lotion or oil. Swedish massage therapy can be very gentle and relaxing. If you’ve never had massage before, this could be a good one to try rst.  Aromatherapy massage is massage therapy with the addition of one or more scented plant oils called essential oils to address speci c needs. The massage therapist can select oils that are relaxing, energizing, stress-reducing, balancing, etc. One of the most common essential oils used in aromatherapy massage is lavender. Aromatherapy massage is particularly suited to stress-related conditions or conditions with an emotional component.  Hot stone massage involves heated, smooth stones placed on certain points on the body to warm and loosen tight muscles and balance energy centers in the body. The massage therapist may also hold stones and apply gentle pressure with them. The warmth is comforting. Hot stone massage is good for people who have muscle tension but prefer lighter massage.  Deep tissue massage targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. The massage therapist uses slower strokes or friction techniques across the grain of the muscle. Deep tissue massage is used for chronically tight or painful muscles, repetitive strain, postural problems, or recovery from injury.  Shiatsu is a form of Japanese bodywork that uses localized nger pressure in a rhythmic sequence on acupuncture meridians. Each point is held for two to eight seconds to improve the ow of energy and help the body regain balance.  Thai Massage aligns the energies of the body using gentle pressure on speci c points. Thai massage also includes compressions and stretches. The therapist moves and stretches you into a sequence of postures. Thai massage is more energizing than other forms of massage. It is also reduces stress and improves exibility and range of motion.  Re exology is sometimes called foot massage, but it involves more than the feet. Re exology involves applying pressure to certain points on the foot that correspond to organs and systems in the body. Re exology can be very relaxing, especially for people who stand on their feet all day or just have tired, achy feet. The scenic photo at top is courtesy of Waddie Thompson.

Sydnee Cypress #32, got up to bat again, and y et again crushed the ball to right center eld for a double, bringing Osceola and Devine in to score for two additional RBI's. Kalgary J ohns #33, ripped it down the left eld line for a double, getting an RBI with Sydnee Cypress scoring. Alaina Lee #00, made a base hit, but took advantage of St. Pete's error and ran to second. The inning nally ended with #3, Savannah Devine, hitting a pop y out to right eld. Volunteer coach Brad Phares said that the coaching staff challenged the girls in the bottom of the fth inning, just like they always do when they make a change in innings. "Basically, whenever we get into a situation where the other team is punching us, w e punch right back. Every time we challenge our girls, they come through and meet the challenge," said Brad Phares. Story said, "The turning point in this game, was de nitely when Sydnee Cypress hit the triple to start the bottom of the fth." The Lady Terriers banded together in the sixth inning by getting three up three down. Lexi Story, the rst batter in the bottom of the sixth crushed the ball out to left center for a double. Jacqueline Phares followed w ith a base hit, and then Jessi Osceola and Savannah Devine both got RBIs scoring Lexi and Jacqueline, which brought the score to 18-10. BradPhares said that he didn't have any doubts in the girls when they got behind in the game. He said, "All year long, the girls have proven that they could pull themselves together and do what had to be done to get back in the game. They have just been really scrappy all year." The Lady Terriers closed the deal in the top of the seventh by making a tailor-made double play 5 to 4 to 3. This is the second time since Navarro has been a part of a softball program that this play has ever been done. Navarro said, "We practice and practice and practice double plays every day, but I have never seen it done until this year. This shows that the hard work and dedication of these girls has paid off." The team was asked what going to state means to them. Senior Alaina Lee #00, the team's center elder, said, "I feel like we are making Moore Haven High School proud. I remember when I watched the 2009 team play, and I knew that I wanted to be there one day. This team has made that dream a reality." Alaina said that she is thinking about trying out for the softball team in college. She is planning on attending the University of Florida. Senior Skyler Burke #10, the team's shortstop said, "I feel like we are leaving a legacy. I hope that the coach next year talks about us like Pedro has talked about the 2009 team that went to state. I hope that the seniors that are here now have set a good example for the younger players." Skyler said she is thinking about trying out for the softball team at Troy State University in Alabama, where she is planning on attending college. Freshman Alexis Story #27, the team's catcher said, "It means the world to me, because this is the rst experience I've had going to state. Especially because I am in the ninth grade." When asked if it is harder for her being so young and starting on a varsity team, Lexi replied, "I feel like I have to work twice as hard as anyone else because I am so young. I have to prove my love for the game so that I can take that next step and play in college." Junior Sydney Garrett #2, the team's second baseman said, "Going to state is a huge opportunity for me because it is my number one dream. We have worked so hard to get where we are and my team deserves it. To achieve this goal means everything to me." Freshman Sydnee Cypress #32, the team's utility player said, "It means a lot to me because this is my rst year in high school and we are going to state." Sophomore Kalgary Johns #33, the team's out elder said, "Going to state means so much to me, because I feel like everyone doubted our team and we are just proving them wrong." Senior Destiny Everett #12, the team's third baseman said, "Being a senior and knowing that you've worked for something your whole high school career and succeeding is like walking on the moon." Destiny is not planning on playing softball in college. She said, "I am going to nursing school, and it will take a lot of focus and determination." Senior Samantha Shearer #7, the team's out elder, said, "Since I was young, going to state seemed like an impossible feat, and now that we have gotten here, it feels like we have completed an almost impossible goal." She said, "I am not going to play softball in college. I am going to Tallahassee Community College to get my Associate's Degree and then transferring to the University of Florida to get my degree in Speech Pathology." Junior Savanna Schlueter #8, the team's out elder said, "Going to state this season is a great accomplishment knowing we were doubted from the beginning. I have played with this year's seniors as long as I can remember, so it means a great deal to go as far as we have with them." Freshman Jessie Espinosa #21, the team's out elder said, "Going to state is de nitely a goal that every athlete dreams of, and achieving that goal is an awesome feeling." Junior Darla Cypress #11, the team's third baseman said "It feels amazing. There is a rst for everything and to be able to go to state with this group of girls is a very memorable experience." Sophomore Savannah Devine #3, the team's utility player said, "It feels amazing to be going to state as a sophomore in high school. When we quali ed for state, it really hadn't sunk in my head yet, and I don't think it will until we actually get there." Freshman Olivia Everett #1, the team's utility player said, "It is an outcome that we achieved because of our dedication and hard work that we put into it this season to get where we are going. Ever since I went to the state game in 2009, I have been dreaming about our team going back to state with a good group of girls going." Senior Jessi Osceola #18, the team's rst baseman said, "It's good because it is my senior year and it is my rst year going to state. I am really excited!" Jessi plans on attending college and playing softball. Sophomore Jacqueline Phares #13, the team's pitcher and rst baseman said, "I have been dreaming about going to state since I was really little, and to me that is one step closer to going to college and making it to the women's college series." Story said, "Going to state means a whole lot to me. I have been watching these girls work hard and improve for the last three years. I watched my daughter Lexi as a seventh grader catching and could see the talent there." Lexi Story #27, the team's catcher said, "Having my dad as a coach has been a blessing. I work harder because he is there. He taught me everything on the eld while I was growing up, and I would not be here today if it weren't for my dad. I work harder because I want my dad to be proud of me when I am out there on the eld." Brad Phares said, "More than anything, I am just proud of the girls and the fact that they have fought hard all year. When the y found themselves backed into a corner, the y looked for ways and found a way to turn the situation around, and win the game. I am glad to see that the hard work has paid off for them and they are getting a chance to play in the state championship." Jacqueline Phares #13, the team's pitcher and rst baseman said, "Having my dad as a coach has been great. He used to coach me when I was little, but when I started playing on a traveling team he didn't coach as much. It is nice having him out there with me because he knows all of my pitching issues and can help me correct them and talk to me between innings." When asked what going to state means to Navarro said, "It feels wonderful. This is my second time going to state since coaching girls fast pitch softball, and only the second time in school history. It is an amazing accomplishment. It looks like I am going out with a bang. "When I moved the eighth graders up in 2010, I told everyone that this would be the next group of girls that would go to state," he added. Navarro said that his game plan for state was to make sure that the team has fun and that they treasure the moments. Since Navarro has been with the Lady Terriers, he has been part of ve district titles, four regional quarter- nal championships, three regional semi- nal championships, two regional nal championships, and one state semi nal runner up. He hopes to add state champions to the list this weekend. "All I ask from all of the fans is to keep faith in the Lady Terriers and me and m y coaching staff. Everyone needs to support them and stay positive whether they are up by ten or down by 10," said Navarro. "Win or lose, everyone should be proud of the Lady Terriers and their accomplishments." There will be a fan bus going to the game on Friday. For more information, please call the Moore Haven Junior/Senior High School at 863-946-0811. Navarro asks that everyone come out and support the Lady Terriers. It means a lot to them.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 28.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 3.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 9.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.4 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “Finally, the news motorists have been waiting forit appears that at least for now, the national average has peaked,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Since February 7, gasoline prices have been on an upward trajectory in a majority of the U.S., and at least for now, prices have broken that upward trend and have stabilized. This is great news, as it likely means in the next couple weeks that gasoline prices will begin seeing more downward momentum. By Memorial Day, if there aren’t major re nery kinks that develop, we could see the national average dropping into the $3.50s, or perhaps even lower,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

The Florida Department of Health’s Environmental Division monitors and regulates activities that may contribute to the occurrence or transmission of disease. It strives to ensure a safe water supply, sanitary disposal of sewage and elimination of vectors for disease transmittal. Some of the local services provided by the Environmental Division of the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties include:  Food and waterborne disease investigations  Inspection of public pools, mobile home and recreational vehicle parks, food establishments and group care facilities  Inspection of tanning facilities  Monitoring of drinking water systems  Investigations of groundwater contamination  Institutional inspections  Septic tank inspections  Monitoring medical waste  Rabid animal investigations  Regulation of migrant labor housing  Drinking water lab Environmental Health regulates private and small public water supplies by collecting and analyzing water samples for bacterial contamination, and permitting and inspecting well installations. It checks for setback compliance, possible contaminant sources and proper well installation to prevent contamination. Any onsite wastewater treatment and disposal (septic) system installed or repaired in any county is required to have a permit. Environmental Health will help to design the new system based on anticipated water use, type of soil at the site, proximity to surface water and separation from the wet season groundwater elevation. Due to the high water tables in southwest Florida, drain elds are elevated in a mound to prevent groundwater contamination. Food programs in “not for pro t” agencies, or adult care facilities are licensed by Environmental Health. Food safety inspections are conducted on a regular basis in these facilities. The Dept. of Business and Professional Regulation inspects restaurants, however, outbreaks of food illness (regardless of the source) are investigated by Environmental Health. Environmental Health regulates the housing for migrant farmworkers and inspect for compliance with minimum housing standards, sanitary site conditions, overcrowding, safe water supply and sanitary wastewater disposal. No one is allowed to house more than four unrelated migrant farmworkers without rst obtaining a permit. Housing units are inspected a minimum of eight times per year. Investigations are conducted routinely for unpermitted migrant housing. Environmental Health regulates and inspects mobile home parks and recreational vehicle parks to ensure a safe and healthy environment for the residents by checking for insect and rodent harborages, safe water supply and sanitary sewage disposal. Public swimming pools and spas are licensed and monitored semi-annually for compliance with disinfection and safety regulations. If a pool is considered as “non-compliant,” the pool is closed. Due to the risks associated with ultraviolet light, tanning salons are regulated and inspected. Environmental Health checks the facilities for safe operations and sanitary operations of the tanning beds and eye-protection equipment. When biomedical waste is improperly disposed of, it can create a signi cant health hazard for sanitation workers and the general public. Environmental Health enforces rules for health practitioners who generate bio-hazardous waste and provide education and supplies for “in-home” generated sharps (needle) disposal. Because of the endemic nature of rabies in Florida, Environmental Health investigates all animal bite reports. A suspected animal will either be quarantined for 10 days or euthanized and the brain sent to a lab to be analyzed for rabies infection. Rabies is considered a fatal disease when contracted by humans. Environmental Health also investigates and enforces abatement of sanitary nuisances which are considered a public health hazard (this is a requirement by Florida Statute). This may include sewage on the ground, harborages for ies or rats, dead animals and/or decomposing garbage. The Environmental Health Division staff members are trained and knowledgeable about the communities they serve.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 8, 2014 22 A sk FlorenceSo “look who’s talking now” for Jenny Craig. Remember Kirstie Alley, the TV and lm actress best known for her roles in the late 1980s, early ’90s movies about the talking babies? Having publicly endured countless battles w ith her weight, the actress frequently captured in un attering photos on tabloid covers will once again serve as spokeswoman for the popular w eight loss company. She’s again challenged herself to lose 30 pounds. Alley blames emotional distress and overindulging around the holidays for packing on the pounds—something most everyone can relate to. Excessive weight carries several health consequences, including heart disease, which often turns fatal. Statistics show one in four women will die from heart disease. And women aren’t the only ones. In fact, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), coronary heart disease—the most common type of heart disease— remains the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States. According to the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, vascular risk factors associated with heart disease – like arterial stiffness – are now emerging as possible risk factors for VCI. However, researchers suggest a simple change in lifestyle could help lower one’s risk of developing cardiovascular disease – and possibly VCI – simply by following these healthy habits:  eating a balanced diet;  exercising;  maintaining normal weight;  minimizing stress; and,  not smoking. Additionally, in a study published by the NIH, drugs used to treat hyperinsulinemia and onset diabetes could actually decrease a patient’s risk o f cognitive impairment. This as we wait for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s stamp of approval on a drug speci cally designed to treat VCI. Most medical inquiries are best served b y consulting your physician or a quali ed specialist and this “Ask Florence” is no substitute for professional exams and insights.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 8, 2014 24 MOORE HAVEN — Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. cut the ribbon on its new Goodwill Retail & Donation Center in Moore Haven on April 29. The store, which is located at 1150 U.S. Highway 27, in Moore Haven, opened its door to a waiting crowd, including Moore Haven mayor Bret Whiddon and stayed busy throughout the day. “We had a great turnout this morning,” says Goodwill spokesperson Madison Mitchell. “The Moore Haven community has been very welcoming.” The store offers over 6,500 square feet of retail space. The Goodwill Retail & Donation Center also features a drive-up donation drop-off, making donating to the organization more convenient. The store also has a Job-Link Center, which opened the same day, and assists people with everything from resume creation to job placement. The Retail & Donation Center is open Monday-Saturday 9 a.m.-7 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Goodwill Industries of Southwest Florida, Inc. provides life-changing opportunities to people with disabilities and disadvantages. Revenue generated at Goodwill’s Retail & Donation Centers supports Job-Link centers, income-sensitive housing for senior citizens and people with disabilities, the SWFL MicroEnterprise project, the L.I.F.E. Academy charter school, and other programs. Last year, through the organization’s programs and services, Goodwill assisted over 37,000 people.
