By Melissa YunasWild re Mitigation Specialist Florida Forest Service Forest Ranger Tom Hopkins recently returned home to Glades County after suppressing wild res in the state of Oregon. Tom spent 18 days ghting multiple wild res across the state, including the Pumice Complex (Crater Lake National Park), running initial attack in the Chiloquin National Forest, and ending on the Murderers Creek Fire (John Day). As Assistant Crew Boss of a 20-person wildland re ghting hand-crew, his days were full of eating smoke and battling ames, while at night he served as his crew liaison. The Florida Forest Service established a hand-crew consisting of 20 nationally quali ed wildland re ghters who served on the front lines of wildland re. Working side by side, the crew's main responsibility was to construct a " reline" a strip of land cleared of ammable materials and dug down to mineral soil around the wild res to control it and to mop up after the re. "The sense of adventure and brotherhood is what drives me to this occupation," Forest Ranger Tom expounds. "The cohesiveness and dependability that is developed between 20 strangers is amazing. Two weeks in a high-stress atmosphere will let you know just how much you need those guys." The wildland re ghters come together from the tip of the Panhandle, all the way to south Everglades, and everything in between.

By Melissa BeltzGlades County Democrat “They were farm kids from way down in Dixie,” began the iconic, chart-topping single “John Deere Green” from country music artist Joe Dif e. It seems like only yesterday when Billy Bob wrote he loved Charlene in John Deere green, but more than 20 years after the single’s release, Joe Dif e is bringing back that and other musical memories from the 20th century’s nal decade when he takes the stage at Seminole Casino Brighton in Okeechobee on Sept. 12. Dif e’s career took off in the early 1990s with hits like “Pickup Man” and “Third Rock From the Sun,” and the country music artist has been performing in concerts across the country ever since. Dif e’s favorite part about performing is “seeing people enjoying the show and singing along” and “just having a good time.” He has been touring for years and has been performing in roughly 100 shows per year. He will be coming to sunny South Florida after a stint in the Mid-West, and will perform shows in Ocala and Port St. Joe, as well as his show at Brighton Casino. Dif e has had many hits throughout his career, but his favorite is a song which he calls “poignant.” “My favorite song is called, ‘Ships That Don’t Come In.’ It seems to mean different things to different people.” It is also his favorite song to perform live, he said. Dif e continues to write music and will perform songs both old and new at his Sept. 12 concert. Dif e said he pulls inspiration from country greats like Merle Haggard, George Jones and Johnny Cash, all of whom he has performed with at some point during his career. “I performed with all of them, I’ve been very lucky,” said Dif e. “It’s been a few years, but I got the chance to meet them and perform with them. They’re all my heroes.” Dif e will take the Brighton Casino stage at 7 p.m. on Sept. 12, with special guests Williams and Ree. Doors open at 6 p.m. For tickets or more information, please visit www.seminolebrightoncasino.com or call 800-360-9875. 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 4, 2014 Crossword Puzzle Dif e To Take Stage at Brighton CasinoCountry music star Joe Dif e to bring back hits from early career in Sept. 12 concert "IT'S BEEN A FEW YEARS, BUT I GOT THE CHANCE TO MEET THEM AND PERFORM WITH THEM.

BY MICHELLE MAR Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Crisis CounselorOn Aug. 28, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodwell announced harsher penalties for NFL players who violate the Personal Conduct Policy regarding assault, battery, domestic violence, or sexual assault. First time offenders will receive a six-game suspension and second time offenders will receive a lifetime ban. The NFL’s decision to increase sanctions for domestic violence offenses came as a response to the two-game suspension of Baltimore Raven’s Ray Rice. Last month Rice was indicted for aggravated assault after a video surfaced of Rice dragging his anc’s unconscious body out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. Commissioner Goodwell made this announcement in a letter sent to team owners. In his letter, Goodwell admitted to mishandling the Ray Rice case. “My disciplinary decision led the public to question our sincerity, our commitment and whether we understood the toll that domestic violence in icts on so many families,” wrote Goodwell, “I take responsibility both for the decision and for ensuring that our actions in the future properly re ect our values. I didn’t get it right. Simply put, we have to do better. And we will.” Goodwell provided a list of actions that would reinforce and enhance their policies against domestic violence. This included providing education and training for NFL players and personnel to help them better understand the risk factors and impacts of domestic violence. Con dential resources and support will also be available for NFL members and their family members whether they are victims or potential perpetrators of sexual assault or domestic violence. Goodwell acknowledged the NFL’s responsibility to be a role model and to set the example on how to prevent and handle domestic violence cases in the future. “Much of the criticism stemmed from a fundamental recognition that the NFL is a leader, that we do stand for important values, and that we can project those values in ways that have a positive impact beyond professional football,” wrote Goodwell. This change in perspective re ects the NFL’s progress towards taking domestic violence more seriously. According to “The NFL and Domestic Violence” by Jeremy Bamidele, Goodwell was initially criticized for handing down a lenient penalty for Rice’s behavior. Now the NFL is sending a very different message loud and clear. “Domestic violence and sexual assault are wrong,” wrote Goodwell. “They are illegal. They are never acceptable and have no place in the NFL under any circumstances.” Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

Jessica Concha, accomplished author and graduate of Moore Haven, came back to visit her alma mater and share her latest work. Jessica’s new book, titled “A Place in Time,” is a pop ction book written for the young reader. “We are excited to see our graduates come back and share their accomplishments!” exclaimed George Coates, principal of Moore Haven Jr.-Sr. High School. “We are extremely proud of Jessica. It’s students like her that help us bolster the rich academic history we’ve had and aspire to continue.” Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have risen 3.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.35/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 0.7 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. “With the summer driving season behind us, motorists can look forward to a national average for gasoline that soon resumes its decline,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “Falling demand and an impending change back to cheaper winter will begin to weigh on current gasoline prices in the next few weeks and by mid-September, much of the nation should see gasoline prices falling once again. Of course, we continue to monitor ever changing geopolitical tensions and hurricane season, but any impact from either should be limited thanks to the drop in demand and shift away from expensive summer blends of gasoline. By October, the national average will likely have declined another 5-10 cents per gallon, and by Halloween, we could see a national average lower than the $3.31/gal we saw to start 2014, DeHaan said.

People can receive a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) manatee or sea turtle decal, and show their support for saving these iconic Florida species, with a donation of $5. Rescues of manatees and sea turtles that are injured, ill or otherwise in distress are one of the many FWC conservation activities supported by decal donations. The new editions of the decals are originally designed works of art, and available now at local tax collectors’ of ces across the state and at MyFWC.com. “People who voluntarily donate $5 for a manatee or sea turtle decal increase the chances that these species will remain in Florida for many years,” said Carol Knox, the FWC’s imperiled species section leader. “You can be a hero and show support for manatees and sea turtles by placing decals on your car, boat or truck, and on things your kids use a lot -like their computers, backpacks or bikes.” This year’s edition of the manatee decal provides information on the back side of the decal about how and where to report injured or distressed manatees. Besides calling the FWC’s Wildlife Alert Hotline, 888404-3922 (FWCC), people can dial #FWC or *FWC on a cell phone or text Tip@MyFWC.com and report the location of the animal, its signs of injury or distress, the nearest boat ramp and contact information. Often an ordinary citizen reporting an injured or ill manatee or sea turtle leads to the FWC being able to rescue the animal. The new sea turtle decal features a leatherback sea turtle hatchling and the jelly sh it likes to eat. Leatherbacks, which average six feet in length and 500 to 1,500 pounds, dive deeper, travel farther and tolerate colder waters more than other sea turtles. The decal serves as a reminder of important tips on how people can help sea turtles survive, which are on the decal backing: Keep nesting beaches dark and free of unnecessary arti cial light by turning off lights or keeping them low or shielded. Remove chairs, boats, canopies and other objects from beaches at night, because they can become obstacles for nesting sea turtles and their hatchlings. Fill in deep holes on the beach each day, as these can trap nesting females and hatchlings. Anchor boats in appropriate locations, avoiding reef and seagrass habitat. Properly discard shing line that can entangle sea turtles and other wildlife. Floridians can donate the $5 to receive a decal when registering a vehicle or vessel, or when renewing a registration through the mail, online or in person at county tax collectors’ of ces across the state. Visitors or individuals from out of state interested in the manatee decal and sea turtle decal can order them online by going to MyFWC.com/Manatee or MyFWC.com/ SeaTurtle and clicking on “Decals.” Purchasing the “Save the Manatee” and “Helping Sea Turtles Survive” Florida license plates at BuyaPlate.com also helps protect these species.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation CommissionThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages families and young anglers to try a diversity of freshwater shing locations and techniques to catch a variety of sh. The "Big Catch" program is Florida's family friendly, freshwater angler-recognition program, with 33 different freshwater sh to target. Simply catch a sh that exceeds the qualifying length or weight, take a photo and submit it to BigCatchFlorida.com. Special youth sizes encourage their participation, and quali ers earn a customized colorcerti cate, decal and discount for a photo mount. Big Catch's origins go back to 1953, but the concept was revamped in 1996 with creation of categories for Specialists ( ve qualifying sh of the same species), Masters ( ve qualifying sh of different species) and Elite anglers (10 qualifying sh of different species), as well as a youth category representing a size roughly 25-percent smaller than the adult quali cation size. Rules were relaxed to allow either a length or weight measurement to qualify. Ivan Salis of Callahan was an early participant following the program's rebirth and quickly quali ed as a Channel Cat sh Specialist, which remains his passion. Salis came from Ohio after a stint in the Merchant Marine. Now he is sharing his love of shing with the next generation. About 10 months ago, Salis met Ishmael Lacoste, a 12-year-old whose mother knew Lacoste's wife. Lacoste saw Salis' Specialist Certi cate and became intrigued. Salis has since mentored Lacoste in his quest to become a successful angler. We are talking commitment, passion and love for shing. In 10 months, Lacoste has submitted nearly 40 qualifying Big Catches culminating in earning his Elite Angler Certi cate on June 4. His rst Big Catch was a longnose gar on Nov. 23, 2013. It was followed by bass, bluegill, brown bullhead and redear sun sh, earning him his Master Angler Certi cate in January. To attain his elite status he added spotted sun sh, Florida gar, warmouth, bow n and yellow bullhead. Along the way, he has been recognized as a specialist for six different species and documented a Bream Slam (catching four different pan sh species on the same day). "I'd like to make shing a career someday," said Lacoste, who is home-schooled. He is very appreciative of Salis' mentoring him and being so inspirational. Together they have persevered through wind, rain and yellow ies in their ongoing quest. Salis says he has enjoyed watching Lacoste learn and take on new challenges. Another thing that makes their productivity so impressive is that all of their catches have been from shore or shing piers. Thanks to the FWC's Fish Management Area (FMA) lakes in Duval County, they have had plenty of quality opportunities, including at Oceanway and Bethesda. FWC sheries technician Willie Prevatt has spent over 20 years ensuring anglers have great shing opportunities at those and other regional FMAs and helping teach youth and adults to sh. Prevatt is a favorite resource for Salis and Lacoste. "I was very happy Ishmael made Elite Angler, not because he caught most of his sh in the FMAs I work in, but simply because he is a really good person and student," Prevatt said. "I think I am most proud of Ishmael and Mr. Salis because they proved by example that you can compete with anglers shing big lakes in expensive bass boats and with fancy equipment, in a small FMA on the shore or dock, even in an urban area." Fishing is fun, challenging and a great way to spend quality time with family and friends, but there is more to it. A "Special Report on Fishing and Boating 2013," makes the case succinctly: "Fishing on lakes, streams, rivers and seas is one of the most popular outdoor activities. As a gateway activity,' it not only connects Americans with the outdoors and a healthy lifestyle, but also introduces them to other outdoor activities. As active outdoor participants, Americans learn the value of environmental stewardship and a healthy connection to nature, while also supporting public lands and community programs nationwide through license fees and federal aid." The FWC is creating the next generation that cares by reaching out to all youth via a variety of outreach programs, including the Florida Youth Conservation Centers Network (www. FYCCN.org). Through an effective statewide network of diverse partners, youngsters are provided education and guidance to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities and to accept stewardship of our precious outdoor heritage. In addition to Big Catch, which inspired Salis and Lacoste to get outdoors and go shing, the FWC has a TrophyCatch citizenscience program that rewards anglers for catching, documenting and releasing bass heavier than eight pounds (TrophyCatchFlorida.com). You can register for TrophyCatch and Big Catch at the same time, which makes you eligible for a drawing for a Phoenix bass boat, powered by Mercury Marine and equipped with a Power-Pole.

tional brie ng. "Extended work hours and sleeping on the ground is the only down side. The sense of pride, knowing we are battling nature one-on-one is ful lling." Tom states. "Our gear weighs roughly 35 to 40 pounds and climbing straight up a ridgeline is physically challenging, but adrenaline, team work and humor get you through the day." "Being the assistant crew boss on the crew is a rewarding job," says Tom. Depending on their quali cations and skill levels, a 20-person handcrew may be divided into squads ( ve re ghters each). "The responsibility of the assistant crew boss is to make sure the crew maintains a steady work pace and to provide direction. Once the outline is there, the crew's strength as a team really dictates the pace. This crew could take on any task." Wild re handcrews exemplify the American spirit: they are self suf cient and are expected to work hard. They often eat and sleep where they work, without luxury. They face danger daily and are the backbone in the ght against wild res. Tom says, "I am ready should there be another assignment, today or next year. There are beautiful landscapes that are at risk of unmanaged re and I am honored to be a part of team that prevents them from burning."
