By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County Democrat Alphonso Smith made his debut as Moore Haven High School’s new football coach on Friday, May 23, in the spring game against King’s Academy in West Palm Beach. The Pahokee graduate and Wake Forest star played parts of four seasons in the National Football League with the Denver Broncos and Detroit Lions and received many football accolades during his playing career which included being First Team All-American for the Demon Deacons in 2008 and second team All-American in 2007. He also earned First Team All Atlantic Coast Conference in 2007-08 for Wake Forest. He coached last season at Carver High School in Winston-Salem, N.C., and was offered the Moore Haven job after the termination of Mike Minikwu this spring. He said his goal is to try and bring a winning tradition he knew at Pahokee to Moore Haven High. “We have a really young team but a lot of hungry players that are eager to get better. We have the full summer ahead of us. Thank God, this game doesn’t affect us in the fall. It was a great gauge for us, but there is a lot of hard work ahead,” he said. Things looked good at the start for Moore Haven as they actually scored two touchdowns on the rst drive of the game. Bronson Bass hit D ’Angelo Ware with a 50-yard score but that was negated by an illegal block. He also threw another touchdown on a diving grab by Torrey Moore in the end zone but that too was negated by a penalty. King’s Academy responded with a 40-yard pass from quarterback Matt Tucker to tight end Sean Hart that set up Tucker’s 9-yard scoring run for the rst score of the game. The score stayed that way for most of the rst half until three minutes remained. An intersection and a 45-yard return by Jonathan Neal gave the Lions the ball inside the Terrier 40, and Tucker followed with a 38 yard New football coach to lead TerriersSee COACH — Page 14

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 4 Memorial Day: More than RememberingBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI spent time looking up my family genealogy by looking through archives and records from where my ancestors lived. I also spoke with people who hailed from those regions and got some insights into why things were done the way they were and how those things turned out. Some of my ancestors came from large farming families. After a few generations, the farms could only be subdivided so many times among the children and so the farms were left to the child who looked like he might be the best farmer. The others, well they wound up in the “new world!” Apparently, I’m here because some of my ancestors didn’t look like they would make good farmers! In my studies of family history, I learn who I am and what forces have shaped my life. In envisioning those people who were my ancestors, I came to understand myself a lot better. Our Scriptures include a great deal of genealogical information. Matthew takes time to begin his gospel with the genealogy of “Jesus Christ, the son of David, the Son of Abraham (Matthew 1:116). Mark thinks it’s important to know about Isaiah’s prediction and John’s forerunning of Jesus’ ministry (Mark 1:1-8). Luke gives the genealogy of Jesus (3:21-37) and John goes all the way back to the rst moments of creation to tell about the coming of “the word made esh” (John 1:114). In other words, knowing how we got here lets us know who we are. This Memorial Day weekend was more than just a holiday; it had to do with who we are as a people. By honoring those who went before us, and who sacri ced their lives, or parts of it, we learn more about ourselves. I had the privilege of sitting with the B-17 and B-24 yers who came through Clewiston last weekend and who fought in World War II, talking about their missions, their fears, their reactions, the events that shaped them and realizing that this was one of the most creative, most inventive, most uni ed times in our history. One of them said that was probably the greatest time in the history of the world; no doubt it was in many ways. I re ected on what I knew about my own family; their participation in this great event and their contributions to the nation. I can only stand back with the greatest of respect as I think about those persons and those moments who have made me who I am and who have been with me in my formation. This Memorial Day, I hoped to re ect once more -not only in thanksgiving for what has gone by, but in the part of those persons in making me who I am. In the same way that the great patriarchs of the Bible have shaped me, so too have those in our national past who have been responsible for providing us with a witness of courage, a testimony of belief in our values, a dedication to our society and what makes us a nation. As I see the imprints of others who have gone before in my life, I realize Memorial Day is more than remembering; it is a recollection once more of who we are as a people and who we are destined to be. That to me is far more than simply being thankful; it is an awareness of what those who have laid down their lives have imprinted on us all. Those who were inspired to write the Holy Scriptures got it right. The genealogies, the origins were to mark those who follow; and thanks be to God for their imprints left on us. We have much to be thankful for as a people, as a nation: the creativity, the genius, the inventiveness, the richness, the sacri ce of those who gave their lives in the formation of this nation, who did so so that we might be the people God intended us to be. May we be more than appreciative; may our self-understanding carry us forward as we recall their greatest of gifts to us. 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.First Methodist Time ChangeCLEWISTON — First United Methodist Church has changed their Sunday worship to one combined worship service at 10 a.m. each Sunday.

Obituaries 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health advises residents and visitors to be aware of chikungunya fever, a viral mosquito-borne disease that has made its way to the Caribbean countries from Africa, Asia and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Paci c. Travelers to these countries could carry the virus back to the United States and infect local mosquito populations. “With a large number of people traveling to and from the Caribbean in Florida, we have been monitoring for possible imported cases,” said Dr. Carina Blackmore, state public health veterinarian and deputy state epidemiologist. “We encourage all Floridians to practice the drain and cover method to minimize mosquito exposure.” Mosquitoes can transmit different viruses, including chikungunya, West Nile and Eastern equine encephalomyelitis. Chikungunya, like dengue, can be transmitted from an infected human to an Aedes mosquito, which in turn can bite another human and pass along the disease. Aedes mosquitoes are day biters which can lay eggs in very small water containers. Early detection of the symptoms and preventing mosquitoes from biting will help prevent the disease from spreading in the United States. During times of increased mosquito activity, local mosquito control districts will treat accordingly to ensure the safety of communities. The Florida Department of Health has received three reports of imported cases of chikungunya fever to Florida from travelers who recently traveled to the Caribbean. One case is a 30-year-old woman in Miami-Dade County, the second case is a 29-year-old woman from Broward County, and the third case is a 44-year-old woman in Hillsborough County. Symptoms of chikungunya usually begin three to seven days after being bitten by an infected mosquito and can include fever and severe joint pains, often in hands and feet. Other symptoms can include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling or rash. Chikungunya fever does not often result in death, but some individuals may experience persistent joint pain. There is currently no vaccine or medication to prevent chikungunya fever. If you feel that you may have contracted chikungunya, see your health care provider. People at increased risk for severe disease include newborns exposed during delivery, older adults (over 65 years) and people with medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease. A person infected with chikungunya should stay indoors as much as possible until symptoms subside to prevent further transmission. To minimize exposure to mosquitoes, practice the drain and cover method. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, pool covers, coolers, toys, ower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected, and discard any items that may collect water. Clean bird baths and pet water bowls twice a week. If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. You may also apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than two months. To learn more about the chikungunya virus, please visit www. oridahealth.gov/diseases-andconditions/mosquito-borne-diseases/chikungunya.html. Florida Department of Health Raises Awareness of Chikungunya Fever WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE CARIBBEAN IN FLORIDA, WE HAVE BEEN MONITORING FOR POSSIBLE IMPORTED CASES... WE ENCOURAGE ALL FLORIDIANS TO PRACTICE THE DRAIN AND COVER METHOD TO MINIMIZE MOSQUITO EXPOSURE.DR. CARINA BLACKMORE Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 0.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.61/g Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 1 cent per gallon in the last week to $3.63/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 15.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 2.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 2.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The start to the summer driving season came with little fanfare,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The national average has remained virtually unchanged for four days straight, and prices over Memorial Day weekend nationally ended up slightly under 2013’s levels. Between now and mid-June we should see additional relief at the pump, and by the end of June, the national average could decline another 10 cents per gallon from where it currently stands. We’re hopeful that hurricane season will make little impact, as several key organizations have said their forecasts call for fewer than average storms, which would certainly help motorists avoid seeing late summer price spikes,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update WE’RE HOPEFUL THAT HURRICANE SEASON WILL MAKE LITTLE IMPACT, AS SEVERAL KEY ORGANIZATIONS HAVE SAID THEIR FORECASTS CALL FOR FEWER THAN AVERAGE STORMS...ANALYST PATRICK DEHAAN I HOPE YOU HAVE LOST YOUR GOOD LOOKS, FOR WHILE THEY LAST ANY FOOL CAN ADORE YOU, AND THE ADORATION OF FOOLS IS BAD FOR THE SOUL. NO, GIVE ME A RUINED COMPLEXION AND A LOST FIGURE AND SIXTEEN CHINS ON A FARMYARD OF CROW’S FEET AND AN OBVIOUS WIG. THEN YOU SHALL SEE ME COMING OUT STRONG. GEORGE BERNARD SHAW, TO MRS.

Special to the Glades County Democrat Special to the Glades County DemocratAs you and your dog head outside to enjoy the warmer weather, it’s important to remember pet safety. Heat can be dangerous for pets, increasing the chances of heat-related stress or illness, including sun burns, skin cancers and heat stroke. The American Veterinarian Medical Association (AVMA) wants to help you keep your pups safe this summer with tips to protect dogs from the heat. Remember, dogs can’t expel heat as well as humans can, so be sure to follow these tips to make sure your dog stays cool this summer!  Never leave your dog in the car. Ever. Temperatures can rise as much as twenty degrees inside a vehicle in ten minutes, and can reach up to 115 degrees when the outside temperature is only 70! Leave your dog at home instead, your pup will thank you!  .Make sure your dog has access to water at all times. As temperatures get hotter, it’s important for your dog to have water available. If your dog’s water bowl is left in the sun for a while, replace it with fresh, cold water that will cool your dog down.  Make sure your dog has access to shade. This is especially important i f your dog is going to be outside for an extended period of time. Remember, dogs can get sunburned too!  Walk your pet during the cooler hours of the day. “Pets shouldn’t be exercised during the peak hours when the sun is hottest,” says Dr. Mitsie Vargas, Veterinarian. “Dogs can’t dissipate heat as well as we can.” When walking, try to avoid hot surfaces such as paved roads.

In South America, this bird occurs wildly east of the Andes and west of the Equator. It is named for its limping-like ight, characterized by its dangling legs and jerky wing beats. A group of limpkins is known as a "hobbling" of Limpkins. The Limpkin is a large, dark brown bird, whose feathers on the head, neck, wings and much of the back and underparts are marked with white, making its body look streaked; its head and neck are light gray. The Limpkin has long, dark-gray legs and a long neck. It has a long, heavy down-curved, yellowish bill with a dark tip. The closed bill has a gap just before the tip that makes it work like tweezers, which the limpkin uses to extract snails out of their shells. Limpkin, locally known as the "wailing bird" or crying bird," are easier to hear than to see. Their most common call is a loud, wild wail or scream which is most often heard at night, dawn or dusk. It has been used for jungle sound effects in Tarzan lms and for the hippogriff in the lm "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." Other calls include wooden clicking, clucks or a piercing "bihk, bihk." Limpkin can often be seen sitting on snags or foraging near the water's edge. They are being reported in wetland areas, ditches and ponds in inland Florida. They almost exclusively eat apple snails, but will eat other aquatic snails and bivalves that they nd by sight or touch. Other less important prey include insects, frogs, lizards, crustaceans and worms. In southern Florida, most nesting occurs from early February through May in central and northern Florida from late February through June. They often raise two broods of young during the breeding season. Nests may be built on the ground, on dense oating vegetation, in bushes or at any height in trees. A clutch will have three to eight eggs which can be gray-white to deep olive. Both parents incubate the eggs during the day, but only the female remains with the eggs at night. The young, who hatch at about 27 days, are covered with down and are capable of walking, running and swimming. Both parents feed the chicks who leave their parents at about 16 weeks.InformationReports of breeding birds in inland Florida are needed for the Breeding Bird Atlas II surveys. This survey is conducted every 25 years and ends in 2016. Please send or phone your reports or photos of breeding birds, including Limpkins, to Margaret England.

Special to the Glades County Democrat Glades Electric Educational Foundation held their annual Scholarship Banquet on May 20th at the Lake Placid Camp and Conference Center. The event was to present two high school seniors from each of the four counties served by the cooperative with a $4000 college scholarship. This year’s recipients were (in alphabetical order): Mattie Bass Moore Haven High School Victoria Burnett Lake Placid High School Melanie De Las Salas Clewiston High School Gary Demarest, Jr. Sebring High School Nicholas Kielbasa Okeechobee High School Jenny Lopez Clewiston High School Kayla Orr Okeechobee High School Thomas Perry Moore Haven High School To set the stage; prior to 1996, Florida mandated that a cooperative’s unclaimed capital credits had to be surrendered for use in the State’s General Fund. In an effort to preserve these funds for the bene t of their members, electric cooperatives throughout the state successfully convinced the legislature to allow them to retain the unclaimed credits and invest them as they saw t. The Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative chose to invest these funds in the future of the communities they represent. The Board determined that rewarding the efforts of our area’s hard-working, achievement oriented young people via college scholarships w as a great way to foster bright, innovative future leadership in our communities. It was out of the Trustee’s forward thinking that the Glades Electric Educational Foundation w as established. To date, the Foundation has awarded $288,000 toward the education of our communities’ young people. It is important to note that the scholarships administered by the foundation are funded solely from these unclaimed capital credits and do not cost the membership a penny! The banquet also provided recognition to a deserving high school junior, who was awarded a week-long, all expenses paid trip to Washington, D.C. Representing Glades Electric in our nation’s capital this year is Sarah Hurst from Okeechobee High School The trip is available to high school juniors who are served by Glades Electric. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour, sponsored by the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, is a week-long tour of Washington D.C. where students from all over the country are brought together to visit national monuments, meet with legislators, and learn the history of rural electri cation. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C. every June since the late 1950s. Over 40,000 students from rural areas and small towns across America have participated in this unique program. You might ask, “Why do electric cooperatives bring high school students to Washington?” The NRECA believes it is important for students to learn about the political process so they can better interact with their government. Students should walk away from the Youth Tour as better leaders and have a sense that they can make a difference in their communities. The Youth Tour students have the opportunity to explore the beauty and history of our nation’s capital, stand upon some of the greatest monuments, and have sit-down conversations with Florida legislators. On National Youth Day, speakers provide insight into the important roles electric cooperatives play in their communities. Glades Electric Cooperative could not be prouder to play a part in the future of our area’s young people! We congratulate the winning students, as well as their parents and teachers.

In recognition of Recreational Water Illness and Injury Prevention Week, May 19–25, the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties encourages everyone to take precautions to stay healthy and safe during recreational water activities. With Memorial Day and summer just around the corner, the potential for illnesses and injuries in water-related activities increases as residents and visitors enjoy w ater activities. Recreational Water Illness and Injury Prevention Week focuses on simple steps swimmers and pool operators can take to help ensure a healthy and safe swimming experience for everyone. Each year, mishandling pool chemicals leads to over 3,000 visits to emergency rooms across the nation. Every day, two children under 14 years of age die from drowning, making drowning the leading cause of injury death for children 1 to 4 years old. “You and your family can have a healthier and safer summer by taking some simple precautions” said Pat Dobbins, Administrator & Health Of cer for the FL Dept of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties. Tips for water safety include:  Use life jackets appropriately;  Provide continuous, attentive supervision for swimmers;  Know CPR;  Shower with soap before you swim to reduce the amount of bacteria in the water;  Prevent access to water when pool is not in use;  Follow directions on product labels and wear appropriate safety equipment when handling pool chemicals; and,  Check the chlorine and pH level before entering the pool, and don’t swallow the water. 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014I know that many of you use the website and are particularly fond of the aerial maps. I recently was asked when the aerial imagery will be updated. Due to the recently adopted legislation for the 2014-2015 scal years, Glades County is scheduled to receive aerials from the Department of Revenue at no cost. Their ights will take place this fall and winter and we hope to have the delivery of the new aerials in the spring or summer of 2015. Even though the actual images are only updated once every three years, we are constantly updating ownership information as well as property combinations and splits. A Special Note to Senior Citizens: For the Senior Citizens who have applied for the additional $10,000 Homestead Exemption, please remember that if you have not already submitted your proof of income, the deadline this year is June 2, 2014.

SUMMARY: The District is re-initiating rule development to amend its consumptive use permitting and water supply related program rules as part of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s statewide effort (referred to as CUPcon) to improve consistency in the consumptive use permitting programs implemented by the water management districts (WMDs). The CUPcon goals include: 1) making the consumptive use permitting program less confusing for applicants; 2) treating applicants equitably statewide; 3) providing consistent protection of the environment; 4) streamlining the process; and 5) incentivizing behavior that protects water resources. This re-initiation will cure discrepancies between the versions of rules that were published on December 10, 2013, and acted on by the Governing Board on February 13, 2014, as well as correct some inadvertent text inaccuracies. There are no substantive changes as adopted by the Governing Board in February 2014. The South Florida Water Management District (District) Governing Board has authorized publication of a Notice of Proposed Rule to amend Chapters 40E-1, 40E-2, and the incorporated “Basis of Review for Water Use Permit Applications within the South Florida Water Management District”, which will be reorganized and renamed “Applicant’s Handbook for Water Use Permit Applications within the South Florida Water Management District.” The relevant portions of Chapter 40E-20, F.A.C., which govern general water use permits will be transferred to Chapter 40E-2, F.A.C., and Chapter 40E-20, F.A.C., will be repealed. Non-substantive amendments to Chapters 40E-3, 40E-5, 40E-8, 40E-10, and 40E-24, F.A.C., are also proposed to be consistent with this statewide effort.

Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the Permitting Authority for notice of agency action may le a petition within 14 days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of ling. A petition for administrative hearing must contain the information set forth below and must be led (received) with the Agency Clerk in the Of ce of General Counsel, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, MS 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000, Agency.Clerk@dep.state. .us, before the deadline. The failure of any person to le a petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person’s right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the approval of the presiding of cer upon the ling of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, F.A.C. A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Permitting Authority’s action is based must contain the following information: (a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency’s le or identi cation number, if known; (b) The name, address, any email address, telephone number and any facsimile number of the petitioner; the name, address, any email address, telephone number, and any facsimile number of the petitioner’s representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how the petitioner’s substantial interests will be affected by the agency determination; (c) A statement of when and how each petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed decision; (d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact.

A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Permitting Authority’s action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C. Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate nal agency action, the ling of a petition means that the Permitting Authority’s nal action may be different from the position taken by it in this written notice of Intent to Issue Air Permit. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such nal decision of the Permitting Authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above. Mediation: Mediation is not available for this proceeding. EPA Review: EPA has agreed to treat the draft/proposed Title V air operation permit as a proposed Title V air operation permit and to perform its 45-day review provided by the law and regulations concurrently with the public comment period, provided that the applicant also transmits an electr onic copy of the required proof of publication directly to EPA at the following email address: hazziez.natasha@epa.gov. Although EPA’s 45-day review period will be performed concurrently with the public comment period, the deadline for submitting a citizen petition to object to the EPA Administrator will be determined as if EPA’s 45-day review period is performed after the public comment period has ended. The nal Title V air operation permit will be issued after the conclusion of the 45-day EPA review period so long as no adverse comments are r eceived that result in a different decision or signi cant change of terms or conditions. The status regarding EPA’s 45-day review of this project and the deadline for submitting a citizen petition can be found at the following website address: http://www.epa.gov/region4/air/permits/ orida.htm. Objections : Finally, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 days of the expiration of the Administrator’s 45-day review period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

touchdown run on an option play to give King’s Academy a 14-0 halftime lead. Smith said mistakes were the main problem in the rst half but told his team that w hen adversity strikes, they should smile, because it’s an opportunity to do something outstanding and memorable. “The boys played hard, and honestly we just have to execute. If we execute we’ll be ne,” he noted. Marquis Hallback, who carried 19 times for 136 yards, broke loose for a 62-yard run in the third quarter to impress scouts from Duke University and Florida Atlantic University, who were on hand. Bronson Bass followed with a quarterback sneak for a touchdown to make the score 14-7 midway through the third quarter. From there it was all King’s Academy. Tucker hit Jake Calabrese for a 49-yard touchdown reception to make it 21-7. Calabrese added a 28-yard touchdown reception early in the fourth quarter to make it 28-7. The Lions wrapped up the score with a 9-yard touchdown run by Roger Peavey, and a 14-yard touchdown run by Justin Champion late in the game. Tucker said his team learned a new offense this spring and were kind of anxious to see how they would perform since they lost their back eld to graduation. “I think we did pretty well and pulled together toward the end,” he said. “I just tried to do my job, run the right plays, make the right reads and put our team in a good position.” Tucker said the game plan was to run a high tempo offense and tire out the Terriers and the strategy appeared to work in the fourth quarter. Bass threw for 77 yards for the Terriers. Ware grabbed a 32-yard pass late in the game. Jose Garcia had a big game on defense for the Terriers with two sacks. John Cox added an interception. The Lions picked off ve passes in the game, three by Grayson Smith, and one each from Chris Catoe and Jonathan Neal. Smith said he has enjoyed the job so far and is glad to invest time in kids who remind him of himself when he played high school ball. He said the team spent a lot of time this spring learning the play book and didn’t get to have as much contact and hitting as he would have liked. “In the summer and fall we will hit each other more. They physically beat us up tonight. We brought 25 guys and 14 played. We hope to have more kids come out this summer and have more players,” he noted. Smith said he has some ideologies and philosophies to change but he expects to be a success as a high school football coach. “We have to work and have to grind and that is the great thing about this game. Da y by day you get better and better,” he said.

South Florida’s water levels are at seasonally normal levels heading into the 2014 wet season that is forecasted to produce near to slightly below-average precipitation, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the National Weather Service reported at a joint brie ng earlier this month. “A combination of timely rainfall and proactive water management during the dry season allowed current water levels to be at a bene cial level for 7.9 million residents and the environment,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Nevertheless, we continually evaluate conditions because Florida has unexpected weather extremes that can quickly change water conditions across large areas.” Released on May 20, the National Weather Service’s 2014 wet season forecast calls for:  A late start to the rainy season (median start is May 20 on the southeast coast and May 27 in the interior and west coast.)  Near to slightly below-average precipitation, with June potentially being the wettest month relative to normal  Above-normal temperatures -one to two degrees Fahrenheit -more noticeable in the overnight/early morning  El Nio to develop during the summer, which typically places South Florida in a transition zone between Caribbean dryness and slightly more precipitation across the southeast U.S. — this was a factor in developing the near to slightly below-average wet season forecast Current Conditions South Florida has seen 15.30 inches of rain to date this dry season, which is 94 percent of average, or a de cit of 1.05 inches. Well-timed rainfall events in key locations during this time period stabilized regional water supplies during the driest portions of the dry season. In recent weeks, dry days have helped to position water levels at their regulation schedules for adequate water supply while making room in storage areas, such as the water conservation areas and lakes for summer rains as South Florida enters the hurricane season on June 1. The regulation schedules are federally authorized operating plans designed to set water levels, based on a host of factors, to help balance competing demands on a resource, such as a lake or reservoir. One of the goals is to achieve the lowest desirable water levels going into the hurricane/wet season. The hurricane season of cially ends on Nov. 30. Lake Okeechobee stood at 12.79 feet NGVD on May 20, which is 0.45 feet below its historic average for this time of year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is responsible for managing the lake’s levels, has been making regulatory releases to the Caloosahatchee River to help meet the lake’s established regulation schedule. It is too early to predict how the wet season will impact lake management during the coming months. During the past 16 years, the dry period of November through April produced above-average rainfall twice and near normal rainfall ve times, with the rest being below average. South Florida Wet Season Facts  On average, South Florida’s wet season begins around May 20 and ends around October 13, lasting for about 21 weeks.  Typically, about two-thirds of annual rains fall during the wet season, or approximately 35 inches out of 52 inches.  Since 1932, virtually all wet seasons have produced two to four feet of rainfall.  June is usually South Florida’s wettest month.  The wet season has three general phases: Memorial Day weekend through July 4 weekend, which are typically the wettest six weeks of the year; early July through mid-August, which are hotter and often drier; and late August through October, which are characterized by highly variable rainfall mainly due to tropical activity and cold fronts. Wet Season Preparation SFWMD maintenance and infrastructure upgrades are critical to the optimal operation of the regional ood control system of nearly 2,100 miles of canals and 2,000 miles of levees and berms. During the past six years, the District has invested $276 million in essential maintenance work, including: Hardening pump stations Overhauling gated spillways Replacing project culverts Dredging canals Stabilizing canal banks Enhancing treatment wetlands The District also conducted its annual “Hurricane Freddy” exercise on May 22 as part of the agency’s emergency operations readiness for hurricane season.

The legacy of Bud Jones, a veteran Clewiston English teacher and theatre devotee, is again being honored by his family, John and Betty Jones, of LaBelle. FCT is honored to be chosen to facilitate this project, designed to celebrate and showcase theatrical arts in southwest Florida. The competition welcomes full-length, previously unpublished plays, written by authors with a southwest Florida connection. A fee of $25 must accompany the manuscript, which may be submitted electronically or by mail and received prior to Aug. 1. The blinded scripts will then be reviewed by a panel of judges, including community members from education, library, publishing and theatrical backgrounds. Cash awards for authors of rst, second and third place winners are $500, $200 and $100, respectively. Additionally, FCT will produce a scripted reading of the rst place entrant during its 2014/15 season.

From 1985 to 1992, Bud owned and operated the Flower Express ower shop in Clewiston and was well known in the community. Bud always liked the theatre! He acted, directed and was involved in all facets of drama while at Eastern Kentucky University. Upon his arrival to Clewiston, he worked with the students at Clewiston High School on several spring performances. He also worked with students and rst responders in Clewiston during disaster training exercises called, “disaster drills,” and assisted with the stage lighting design when the John B. Boy auditorium was built. Bud’s last production was with the Actors Community Theatre of Clewiston in 1989, when he directed “Annie Get Your Gun,” as well as acting the roll of Buffalo Bill Cody in the play. Bud passed away in 1994 and is buried in Clewiston. He left behind his love of the theatre with his family, most importantly his brother, John Jones. John and his wife Betty wished to honor Bud’s memory by creating this competition in his name.
