By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County Domocrat Nearly 100 more Okeechobee residents collected unemployment bene ts in May when compared to April, according to the monthly report released June 20 by the U.S Department of Labor and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The report showed 1,270 residents collected bene ts in Okeechobee, a rate of seven percent. This compared to 1,177 in April, a rate of 6.5 percent. Compared to May, 2013, 1,544 residents collected bene ts, a rate of 8.3 percent. Summertime unemployment rates have traditionally been higher than the winter months in Okeechobee. Glades County saw an increase from 6.8 percent in April to 7.7 percent in May. The report said 380 residents collected bene ts in May, which were 50 more than the previous month. Glades County had a jobless rate of 7.6 percent in May 2013, as 414 residents collected bene ts. The size of the workforce in Okeechobee was listed at 18,146 during May, with 16,876 residents gainfully employed during that period. Glades County had a work force of 4,928 in May, with 4,548 with jobs. The state average was 6.1 percent in May, up from 5.7 percent in April. The national level went from 5.9 percent in April to 6.1 percent in May. Around the region, Desoto County had six percent, Hardee County 6.6 percent, Hendry 9.4 percent, Highlands 7.1 percent, Indian River County 7.4 percent, Martin County 6.1 percent, Osceola 6.2 percent, Palm Beach County 5.9 percent and St. Lucie County 7.7 percent unemployment rates in May. By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County DemocratBear sightings are up across the state and Florida Fish and Wildlife of cers said that trend is also seen in rural areas like Glades County. Biologist Chad Allison said in a typical year, they see a rise in bear reports in late spring April and May when they come out of their winter dormancy, and also in late fall when bears are looking to stock up on calories, "For the Glades population, the trend indicates an increase in nuisance reports," he noted. Residents can be careless in areas inhabited by bears when they leave food in trash cans. There have also been reports of residents feeding bears. "It's a constant educational effort on our part to remind residents they do live in close proximity to bears and it's important to secure anything that attract the bears either by scent or literal feeding." Garbage, livestock, pet food, bird seed and other items are known to attract bears into residential neighborhoods. The bears are trying to make a living like any wild animal and if no food is around, they typically move on. The Florida black bear has been in the northern Glades county and southern Highlands county region for decades. They normally inhabit pockets of atwoods, bayheads, hammocks and swamps. The population is estimated at 175 bears in the two counties. There were 430 reported contacts with bears in this region between 1990 and 2010. Allison said many of these bears were left alone for years, but with growth and development, interaction with them has become more common. There is also a population known to inhabit the Big Cypress Reservation. Allison said statistics show a small increase in the bear population in this region.

Adult Wood Storks have a black face and a thick, downcurved, dusky, yellow bill. This long-legged, mostly white bird is the only stork that presently breeds in North America. On land, it appears all white, with blackish-gray legs and pink feet. When it ies with its outstretched neck, black can be seen on the trailing edge of the wings. Juvenile Wood Storks have duller feathers and are generally browner on the neck and have a paler bill than the adult. Wood Storks are usually silent, but make nasally, barking calls while in the nesting colony. Their diet consists of sh and occasionally cray sh, amphibians, baby alligators or snakes. Wood Storks are tactile feeders who sh by touch. They slosh their bills around in the water or startle prey into their bill by stirring up the water with their foot. When prey touches the bill, the Wood Stork snaps its mouth shut. This snap re ex is the fastest re ex measured in any vertebrate. Wood Storks nest in colonies with up to 25 large, stick nests in one tree. Eggs are incubated by both parents in 27 to 32 days. Chicks weigh about two ounces at birth and are unable to y. Week-old chicks are fed by adults about 15 times per day. A colony is considered successful if at least 1.5 young edge per nest.

SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThere are certain paradoxes for those who require simple answers to life’s questions. What happens inside of my computer to give me all of the material it can generate? How does my body heal itself when I am sick? Why should relationships range from friendship to enemies even if I am the same person to all I meet? Why do people love each other? The list can go on and on. I don’t ever expect to know all of the answers; there is no person on the face of the earth that has all of the answers to everything. In faith, there are paradoxes, too. Religion has its mysteries and has had them from the beginning. For Christians, the idea that the Lord is both God and man is a mystery. How God reveals Himself as a Trinity is another great mystery, too. I try to share it by using familiar examples: “Water, ice, steam” – three manifestations of the same matter, but basically the same stuff. Saint Patrick used the shamrock to explain to the Irish people about the threeand-one nature of God. All means to explain are useful, none are perfect. But there are others who want things simpler. One scholar felt we don’t need a “committee God.” Others still deny there is more than one nature to God; monotheism has been around for a long time. Others believe that there was a prophet that lived a long time ago and did good things, but certainly wasn’t God. I note from the earliest times our spiritual ancestors understood God as one being with more than one person. The story of Creation in Genesis (chapter 1, verse 26) tells of God saying, “Let US make man in OUR image, in our likeness…” before the creation of human beings. God speaks in plurality; and who would God be talking to? From the earliest moments, revelation begins with more than one person of one substance. From the beginning, God is a paradox, a mystery not to be understood, but to be accepted. More important for me is that I do not have to understand but accept. When I accept, I can make use of and be thankful for all of the paradoxes in my life. I can use the computer, I can be thankful I am healed when I need to be, I can be thankful for friends and come to terms with those who are not friendly, I can accept that I am loved by others and never understand why. Now, I can also accept the idea that God, too, is a mystery and I can accept it. This revelation helps me live in the world that God has created. As I read the news and see it on TV, I cannot help but wonder what goes on in the minds of those who do many of the crazy things that I see. Recently, the President was disturbed about the rash of school shootings. More recently we hear about people going berserk on an aircraft in ight and being dangerous to passengers and crew, as well as to themselves. What is it that makes such people not stand others to a degree that they will endanger them and themselves? Is it perhaps that they cannot accept some of the paradoxes of life, that others are different and not to be understood, but to be respected in their right to have life and peace too? Is it perhaps that their world is full of fear of the unknown and it manifests itself by lashing out in destructive ways? People are different, they are not understood, I don’t have all of the answers. If somehow I interpret their actions as “bullying” or hostile toward me, does that somehow give me the right to do damage? Rather, I have to come to terms with the things I don’t understand. I accept the differences, avoid them if need be, and, yes, they cause me problems, but I know there are mysteries out there and I live accordingly. Maybe God is revealing His nature to us to say we will not fully understand, but we can appreciate, enjoy, tolerate, respect. No need to lose your bearings and go off the deep end. It works for the faithful, it can work for you too. If you would like to contact Rev.

SPRING SPECIAL! Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 26, 2014 6 FLORIDA MARIJUANA INFOFlorida has become the 22nd state in the nation (23rd to legalize, including Washington, D.C.) to pass legislation supporting the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes. Governor Rick Scott signed Senate Bill 1030 -the “Charlotte’s Web” bill -on June 16, with overwhelming support from Florida citizens and the Florida legislature. The bill passed 111-7 in the House and 30-9 in the Senate. “This is de nitely a major step in furthering medical marijuana usage in our state,” said David Cohn, editor-in-chief of FloridaMarijuanaInfo.org. “But it’s important our citizens clearly understand what this bill means to people suffering from debilitating diseases, and the pros and the cons associated with it.”About SB 1030In its most simple form, SB1030 decriminalizes medical professionals’ recommendations and patients’ use of a particular strain of a lowTHC cannabis for speci c medicinal purposes. It means a doctor can ‘order’ the usage of a certain strain of cannabis for treatment of speci c ailments as outlined in the bill. These ailments include cancer, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, other physical medical conditions that chronically produce symptoms of seizures or severe and persistent muscle spasms, and its original intended purpose -pediatric epilepsy. (The strain was named ‘Charlotte’s Web’ after Charlotte Figi, a ve year old who experienced a reduction of seizures after taking the drug.) The physicians must be appropriately licensed and patients must be Florida residents. The physician must add the patient to the newly formed “compassionate use registry.” It allows for ve companies to be licensed to cultivate, process and dispense the approved strain in an oil format. These companies would be based in four corners of the state, and one in the center of the state.

Please take simple precautions to protect from mosquito-borne illnesses which have received increased attention recently in Florida. “One way folks can help to prevent mosquito-borne illnesses is to follow the “Drain and Cover” method,” said Pat Dobbins, Administrator/Health Of cer for the Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties. DRAIN standing water to stop mosquitoes from multiplying. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys, ower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected. Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and pans, broken appliances and other items that aren’t being used. Empty and clean birdbaths and pets’ water bowls at least once or twice a week. Protect boats and vehicles from rain with tarps that don’t accumulate water. Maintain swimming pools in good condition and appropriately chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming pools when not in use. COVER skin with clothing or repellent. Clothing: Wear shoes, socks, and long pants and long-sleeves. This type of protection may be necessary for people who must work in areas where mosquitoes are present. Repellent: 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 old. COVER doors and windows with screens to keep mosquitoes out of your house. Repair broken screening on windows, doors, porches, and patios. ‘Drain and Cover’

American Sugar AllianceThe U.S. House Appropriations Committee reaf rmed lawmakers' support of the sugar policy included in the 2014 Farm Bill by rejecting an amendment designed to weaken that policy and leave Americans more dependent on subsidized foreign sugar. By a vote of 32 to 18, the committee defeated a proposal to subject sugar producers to an arbitrary means test before they could obtain government loans that they repay with interest. The amendment was offered by Congressmen Charlie Dent (RPA) and Jim Moran (D-VA) and was similar to an amendment offered in 2012 that was likewise rejected by the committee. "This was just another attempt by sugar opponents and the big candy companies they represent to harm U.S. sugar farmers, and the committee should be commended for overwhelmingly rejecting this scheme," said Phillip Hayes, a spokesman for the American Sugar Alliance. "It's hard to imagine any agricultural issue that has been voted on as many times as sugar policy in recent years, yet the votes continually show strong support for domestic producers." During the Farm Bill debate, which began in 2012, a total of ve anti-sugar amendments were defeated on the oors of the House and Senate. In addition, three amendments have been defeated at the committee level since 2012, including the most recent vote. "Sugar prices have been extremely depressed because of a ood of subsidized Mexican sugar that has been dumped onto the U.S. market," Hayes explained. "U.S. farmers are struggling in this low-price environment with prices hovering around 1980s levels, yet we continue to come under attack by Big Candy lobbyists who want to outsource America's production to less ef cient, subsidized foreign industries." Sugar policy operated at no-cost to taxpayers from 2003 to 2012 and it is the least costly major commodity policy in the Farm Bill. There was a cost in 2013 as a direct result of unfair trading practices by Mexico. The U.S. government is currently investigating Mexico's sugar industry 20 percent of which is owned by the Mexican government and has cited strong evidence that subsidization and dumping are injuring U.S. farmers and taxpayers.

By Barbara BrownSpecial to the Glades County Democrat Everything was organized, and going as planned for GCWC’s installation--until the caterer had a death in the family, and for the rst time ever, had to cancel. Glades County Woman’s Club was planning for their last meeting of the club year to be a catered brunch in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church for their installation of the newly elected of cers. Glades County Woman’s Club is de nitely a group of resourceful women, and immediately told retiring president, Kim Clement, not to worry, “We’ll x it!” Suggestions started ying: hunt another caterer, covered dish, eat at a restaurant. All were considered, but Aletris Farnam pulled the rabbit out of the hat when she noti ed Kim that she would x the brunch, and with only three days notice! Kelly Brantley volunteered to bring plates, cutlery and glasses, and Bobbi Brown decorated the tables Hawaiian style, complete with parrots left from Vacation Bible School. Anyone would have thought that Aletris cooked for 20 people every day of the week, as she served roast pork, lemon chicken and all the trimmings -with makeup and that beautiful red hair completely in place! Thank you, First Baptist for the use of your kitchen! Following an almost teary speech by Kim, thanking everyone for their support and outlining the Seconnd Annual HighHeel-Athon plans, she handed her gavel to Priscilla Spooner to present to the new president as she installed the following ofcers: President, Dawn Garrison; Vice President, DeeDee Beck; Treasurer, Bonita Drayton; Recording Secretary, Dianne Tillery and Corresponding Secretary, Bobbi Brown. Each of cer lit a candle from a central one, af rming that she would ful ll her duties to the best of her ability. Kim presented each of cer with a gift of appreciation, and on behalf of the club, Lorie Ward told Kim what a great job she had done as president and presented her with gifts from the club and a card signed by all those present. It should be a good year this year. Dawn has already planned a meeting of the newly installed of cers to go over her ideas for the coming year, and even with a new baby on the way, Kim has great plans for the second High-Heel-A-Thon. I can see her now pushing that baby buggy all over the ChaloNitka grounds making sure everything is in place!

Portions of U.S. 27 are hot spots for the sightings of bears in the past and the FWC gets many reports from Clewiston north to Poinciana. “The majority of our calls come from the populated areas of U.S. 27 from Lake Placid to Frostproof, but we’ve had them farther south than Venus in the past,” he added. If you do see a bear, it often will be a male because they are considered the more active of the two sexes, as they have to ght for territory and mates and also like to eat more. “For those of us who appreciate the natural history of Florida and conservation and wildlife management, it is testament to a success story. At the same time, it is a large wild animal and when it comes to interaction, you can’t stress enough the need to be proactive, safe and mindful of the animals around you,” he concluded. BearContinued From Page 1 By Tracy WhirlsGlades County EDC John Huysman, a teacher at Moore Haven Junior-Senior High School, is the South Central Florida RA0/Florida Heartland Regional Economic Development Initiative Volunteer of the Year. For the last three years, Dr. Huysman has spearheaded the effort to develop the Gateway Logistics and Manufacturing Training Center (GLMTC) in Moore Haven. He has attended trade show events annually, often on his own dime, as well as using vacation days to do it. He’s established relationships with professional organizations, ranging from the American Society of Transportation and Logistics, MHI and the National Center for Supply Chain Technology, garnering support for the logistics and advanced manufacturing training center, which culminated in the Glades County Economic Development Council (EDC) securing a $3.5 million appropriation to build the Gateway Logistics and Manufacturing Training Center. The GLMTC is a unique project, wherein Edison State College, Suncoast Trucking Academy and Career Source Southwest Florida will all be housed under one roof. The training center, the Glades County EDC and incubator businesses will enable high school students and adults to have their skills assessed and receive training and job placement services in a one-stop facility, allowing them to step on and off the career pathway, while receiving stackable certi cations until they reach their career goals. When GLMTC opens and begins providing training for secondary and postsecondary students from around the Heartland, companies ranging from Wal-Mart to Mosaic, Target to Winn Dixie, will be able to hire GLA-certi ed students, and the Glades County EDC will potentially be able to attract companies -like ICS Logistics and PenserSC, among others, who require the certi cation for new hires -to the region. When Dr. Huysman isn’t teaching or volunteering for the EDC, he chairs the Moore Haven Scholarship Foundation and serves on a host of civic boards and committees. He and his wife, Sheryl, have two children, Brynn and Tanner.

JEFF ALLBRITTEN President, Florida SouthWestern State CollegeFor more than 50 years, Edison State College has been an integral part of the Southwest Florida community. Beginning July 1, we are Florida SouthWestern State College (FSW). While our name is new, it’s important for you to know that our mission, our vision and our dedication to the students, businesses and communities we serve remains the same. Simply stated, this is a name change, not a mission change. In the past few years, we have been undergoing an evolution. In order to continue serving our students, we need to be sure that our academic offerings, and the manner in which we deliver them, are designed to meet the demands of today and tomorrow. We now have ve schools that help us do that: the School of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; the School of Business and Technology; the School of Education; the School of Health Professions; and the School of Pure and Applied Sciences. We have impressive facilities to help our students prepare for their careers, including state-of-the-art nursing simulation labs, a dental hygiene clinic and crime scene investigation software and equipment, for starters. Did you know that we are home to world-class arts icons: the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, the Bob Rauschenberg Gallery and the Rush Gallery? Many people may not recall that we were the rst college to have athletics in this area. Starting in the fall 2015, the Buccaneers will return to competition with our softball and baseball teams. We just signed a 10-year lease with Lee County for the City of Palms Park in downtown Fort Myers. When you look back on your college days, you’re going to remember the friends you’ve made both in and out of the classroom. We continue to have strong academic offerings. Now, by having student clubs, intramural sports and now intercollegiate competition, this college offers the complete college experience. Looking ahead, we will continue to evolve as FSW. We are working on offering international studies and experiences, and continuing to build key partnerships with area businesses and our sister institutions. This truly is an exciting time for everyone. Join us as FSW, and Go Bucs!

JEFF ALLBRITTEN The 2014 Hurricane Season began on June 1, and Attorney General Pam Bondi wants Floridians to be prepared for the storms and any scams associated with hurricane preparedness or property repair or clean-up in the aftermath of a disaster. To help Floridians protect themselves, Attorney General Bondi has released a hurricane preparedness guide. The guide includes useful tips on what to do to prepare for a storm and information to help consumers spot stormrelated scams in order to avoid becoming victims. “Unfortunately, unscrupulous individuals will use the threat of a hurricane and the devastation it can cause to scam Floridians,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “By providing this hurricane guide, we intend to help Floridians prepare now so they can avoid being scammed.” Some of the most common storm-related scams include: tree service scams, charity scams, disaster-relief scams, and water testing and treatment scams. To avoid being scammed when preparing for a storm or dealing with its aftermath, follow these tips: Ask to see Florida Building Commission product approval numbers on storm-proof products for your home and visit www. oridabuilding.com to verify products, check permits for installation of products, report any fraudulent claims on unapproved products, and follow-up with your insurance provider on discounts for hurricane or wind mitigation. Watch-out for price gouging. It is unlawful to raise hotel rental rates or housing leasing rates during a state of emergency. Essential commodities such as lumber, ice, water, generators, and shelter are also protected under the Price Gouging Law. If you suspect price gouging, save receipts and call 1-866-9-NO-SCAM. Never pay for services up front. After the storm, beware of unsolicited workers, have evaluations of damages prepared by your insurance company, obtain multiple estimates and bids on repairs, research companies, check for proof of insurance and verify bonding agencies, and read entire contracts. Ask for references and verify business licenses for anyone who may be performing storm-related work on your property.

FWCThe Florida Guides Association on June 18 honored Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) staff member Jim Estes for his conservation efforts. Capt. Pat Kelly, Florida Guides Association president, presented Estes, who is an FWC Division of Marine Fisheries Management employee, with the Capt. Phil Chapman Conservation Award at a Commission meeting in Fort Myers. Estes has been a leader in conservation with the FWC for more than 28 years, working in freshwater sheries for 26 and recently seeking new challenges and opportunities with saltwater sheries, where he has already made a signi cant impact. An avid angler, he is dedicated to managing Florida's resources for the bene t of anglers and helping the people who care about sh, including co-workers, said Jessica McCawley, director of the FWC's Division of Marine Fisheries Management. "Jim is a prime example of leadership at its best," McCawley said. "He not only inspires staff at all levels to be stewards of conservation, he also motivates them to exceed their goals." Estes' many accomplishments include research and management of Florida bass as well as research and management of hydrilla and its effect on sport sh populations, and the creation and development of the FWC's statewide Long Term Monitoring program for lakes and rivers. He has provided invaluable leadership in freshwater sheries research, leading a statewide effort to improve the agency's sampling design. Forward-thinking, he has also acted as a mentor to graduate students and young FWC biologists. Since his move to Marine Fisheries Management, Estes has taken the lead on critical management issues dealing with Apalachicola Bay oysters and lion sh. "Jim's efforts and leadership in the recent Apalachicola Bay oyster disaster have been invaluable," McCawley said. "He excels at working with stakeholders and nding solutions that bene t both the resource and the shermen who depend upon that resource. We are lucky to have him." By Charles M. MurphySpecial to the Glades County Democrat A 27-year-old Moore Haven man was released on bond June 6 after he was charged with ring an assault weapon at the home of his estranged wife. Nathaniel Kelly Jr., of Hendrix Street, faces charges of aggravated assault with a weapon and discharging a rearm in public. Glades County Sheriff Deputies responded on June 6 to a residence in Moore Haven and learned that Mr. Kelly red multiple rounds toward the home. The incident allegedly started as a verbal disagreement, which involved domestic issues. The victim said the disagreement turned physical but that bystanders, which included her boyfriend, broke up the ght in the yard. She went on to say that she went to get a drink of water when she heard shots."When asked if Mr. Kelly was ring at her, she stated he was ring it in her general location but was not sure exactly where he was aiming the weapon." Deputies said 16 shell casings were collected from the crime scene. Mr. Kelly was arrested without further incident at a Moore Haven residence. Deputies also secured a century arms model AKMS 7.62 mm caliber rearm. Detective Ronnie Baker said Kelly said he got into an argument with the victim and things got out of hand. He admitted to ring 10 to 15 rounds from the rearm into the ground, according to the report. 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 26, 2014 Deputies Say Assault Ri e Fired at House Honoring FWC Marine Fisheries Employee

FREE GIVEAWAYS!!! The Florida Department of Health in Glades CountyThe Glades District School Board works to provide the optimal learning and social environment for students and a healthy working environment for staff. If tobacco is used on campus, schools are fostering an environment that is inconsistent with tobacco-use-prevention messages taught in the classroom. Tobacco use on school campus also exposes students and other staff members to secondhand smoke. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one of the ways to prevent asthma in children is to make certain schools are tobacco-free. A tobacco-free school policy means no tobacco use or advertising is allowed on school property by anyone, at any time, to include off-campus school events. While smoking is banned inside school buildings, not all school districts in Florida restrict smoking and tobacco use on all of their properties or at their events. The Glades District School Board – Tobacco Control Policy prohibits the use of any and all tobacco products at all facilities and in all vehicles owned or operated by the Board. The Glades District School Board – Tobacco Control Policy applies 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The Glades County Chapter of Students Working Against Tobacco (SWAT) and Glades Tobacco-Free Partnership is aware of the importance of tobacco free schools and continues to work to increase the scope of support for Tobacco Control Model Policies in Glades District Schools. Optimal Learning Takes Place in Tobacco Free Schools By Tony YoungFWC How many of us hunters are on Facebook? Well, did you know that the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) now has its own “HuntFlorida” Facebook page? Next time you log in, go to Facebook.com/HGM.FWC and give us a “like,” so you can stay abreast of the many advertised hunting opportunities and hear about any upcoming regulation or quota application changes. And please “share” the page with your hunting buddies, too! Speaking of quotas, every hunter knows you have a better chance of catching a monster buck off guard during the rst part of hunting season. That’s why many of us enjoy hunting the archery and muzzleloading gun seasons — and why we can’t miss opening weekend of the general gun season. After that, multitudinous gunshots often break out, and those mature bucks start feeding mostly at night, making hunting ’em a lot more dif cult. If you hunt public land, you should know that many of Florida’s wildlife management areas (WMAs) require a quota permit to hunt during archery, muzzleloading gun and all or part of the general gun season. A quota is the maximum number of hunters allowed on a particular WMA. The FWC’s Quota Hunt Program prevents overcrowding on such areas and provides quality hunts. Quotas also help control game harvests. The FWC sets quotas based on an area’s size, habitat, game populations and regulations. There are several types of quota permits, and most are issued by random drawing. This year, however, there’s been a change: The wild hog application periods will now be grouped with the other fall quota hunts. The rst-phase application period for archery, muzzleloading gun, general gun, wild hog, youth, family, track vehicle (a swamp buggy with tank treads), airboat and mobility-impaired quota hunt permits runs from now to June 30. You may submit one application for each of the hunt types, and there is no fee to apply. One thing to remember though: Unless exempt, you must have an up-to-date management area permit (or a license that includes one) when applying for a quota permit, or the system won’t accept your application. Two of these quota hunts are unique to South Florida. An airboat quota permit is required for anyone wishing to hunt out of an airboat on Everglades and Francis S. Taylor WMA in Broward and Miami-Dade counties. But, if you’d rather hunt off a track vehicle there, or on Rotenberger or Holey Land WMAs in Palm Beach County, you’ll need a track vehicle quota permit. The FWC offers youth deer hunts on Camp Blanding WMA in Clay County and on Andrews WMA in Levy County. If you have children between the ages of eight and 15, and you want them to have a chance to experience one of these great hunts, apply for a youth quota hunt permit, because only 160 kids will get to participate. During these hunts, only the youngsters may hunt, and they and their adult supervisors are the only people allowed on the area. This coming season, there will be family quota hunts on 25 WMAs scattered throughout the state. You must have a family quota hunt permit to hunt these areas during speci c time periods. If you are drawn, the permit requires one adult to take one or two youths hunting. The adult may not hunt without taking along a child. Hunters certi ed by the FWC as mobilityimpaired may apply for mobility-impaired quota permits. These permits allow exclusive access to general-gun hunts on nine of the state’s better public hunting areas. If you want to get the jump on one of these hunts, make sure you have the correct quota hunt application worksheet so you can apply for one or more of these great opportunities. All application worksheets can be found at MyFWC.com/License by clicking on “Limited Entry/Quota Hunts” and then looking under “Quota Hunts.” Once you’ve completed the application worksheet, you may use it to apply at License.MyFWC.com or submit it to any license agent or tax collector’s of ce. To nd out if you’ve been selected, you can simply log into your customer account at License.MyFWC.com. Drawing results will be posted after 10 a.m. on July 8. If you don’t get drawn for a particular hunt type, you’ll get a preference point for next year’s drawing, which will improve your chances of being selected. If you’re unable to use your quota permit and you return it in time, you’ll get your preference point restored. You can only return your unwanted quota permit online, and you can’t do so until Phase III begins on July 30 and up until 10 days prior to your hunt date. To do this, log in to your customer account at License.MyFWC.com, and click the “Return” link next to the hunt you wish to turn in. Returns will be accepted online only and will be reissued every Tuesday throughout the season during the Phase III application period. If you return a permit that was awarded to you in Phase I, you will receive a preference point, as well as the restoration of your preference points used to obtain the permit. Here’s wishing you luck in drawing one of these great permits! ‘Outta the Woods’Apply for fall quota permits in June

19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 26, 2014 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthSnoring may be more than just an annoying habit – you may have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a sleep disorder that, left untreated, can take its toll on the body and mind. With sleep apnea, your breathing pauses multiple times during sleep. The pauses can last from a few seconds to minutes and can occur more than ve times per hour, to as high as 100 times per hour. (Fewer than ve times per hour is normal). Sometimes, when you start breathing again, you make a loud snort or choking sound. Sleep is momentarily interrupted when this occurs. Untreated OSA has been linked to high blood pressure, heart attacks, strokes, car accidents, work-related accidents and depression. According to the American Sleep Association, OSA affects more than 12 million Americans. Sleep apnea is almost twice as common in men as it is in women. Other risk factors include: being overweight, as extra fat tissue around the neck makes it harder to keep the airway open; being over age 40; smoking; having a family history of sleep apnea; and having a nasal obstruction due to a deviated septum, allergies or sinus problem. Children also get sleep apnea, most commonly between ages three and six. The most common cause is enlarged tonsils and adenoids in the upper airway. There are no drugs that are approved by the FDA to treat sleep apnea and there are a number of drugs that can actually make sleep apnea worse, including many for insomnia, anxiety or severe pain. Chronic Disease Insuf cient sleep has been linked to the development and management of a number of chronic diseases and conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obesity and depression. Diabetes Research has found that insufcient sleep is linked to an increased risk for the development of Type 2 diabetes. Recent research suggests that optimizing sleep duration and quality may be an important means of improving blood sugar control in persons with Type 2 diabetes. Cardiovascular Disease Persons with sleep apnea have been found to be at an increased risk for a number of cardiovascular diseases. Notably, hypertension, stroke, coronary heart disease and irregular heartbeats (cardiac arrhythmias) have been found to be more common among those with disordered sleep than their peers without sleep abnormalities. Likewise, sleep apnea and hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis) appear to share some common physiological characteristics, further suggesting that sleep apnea may be an important predictor of cardiovascular disease. Obesity Laboratory research has found that short sleep duration results in metabolic changes that may be linked to obesity. Epidemiologic studies conducted in the community have also revealed an association between short sleep duration and excess body weight. This association has been reported in all age groups, but has been particularly pronounced in children. It is believed that sleep in childhood and adolescence is particularly important for brain development and that insuf cient sleep in youngsters may adversely affect the function of a region of the brain known as the hypothalamus, which regulates appetite and the expenditure of energy. Depression The relationship between sleep and depression is complex. While sleep disturbance has long been held to be an important symptom of depression, recent research has indicated that depressive symptoms may decrease once sleep apnea has been effectively treated and suf cient sleep is restored. The interrelatedness of sleep and depression suggests it is important that the sleep suf ciency of persons with depression be assessed and that symptoms of depression be monitored among persons with a sleep disorder. As interruption of regular breathing or obstruction of the airway during sleep can pose serious health complications, symptoms of sleep apnea should be taken seriously. Treatment should be sought from a health care provider. Always Tired? You May Have Sleep Apnea COURTESY PHOTO UNTREATED OSA HAS BEEN LINKED TO HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, HEART ATTACKS, STROKES, CAR ACCIDENTS, WORK-RELATED ACCIDENTS AND DEPRESSION. ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN SLEEP ASSOCIATION, OSA AFFECTS MORE THAN 12 MILLION AMERICANS.PAT DOBBINS
