Page 4 By Patty BrantSpecial to the Glades County Democrat For years there has been a widely held belief that education training is the way this longtime agricultural area will survive and thrive in the future. Although it is a standing goal to bring vocational training to Hendry and Glades counties on a large scale, the reality has been extremely difcult to accomplish. For several years, both Hendry and Glades have been systematically working toward that goal. The Glades County Regional Training Center (GCRTC) is at the core of the plan, the place where they hope to provide the Progress on training center picks up Special to the Glades County DemocratGlades and Hendry county ofcials are working with various agencies to try to institute more educational programs at the Glades County Regional Training Fa cility. By Chris FelkerGlades County Democrat Paul Carlisle, who has been a workhorse as head of the Glades County administrative staff for the past four-plus years, may be leaving his post as county manager to take the reins as city manager in Sebastian. Glades County commissioners scheduled a discussion on the matter for Tuesday after learning a few days previous that he was being offered that position. They ended up recessing, so they could continue their talks, until 1 p.m. Friday, April 13. Board Chairman John Ahern said he wanted to hear the views of his fellow commis sioners. Last week, we were made aware that Mr. Carlisle had interviewed on a posi tion with the City of Sebastian and was select ed. He has not accepted the position yet, so were kind of in a state of limbo depending Carlisle may be leaving manager post Special to the Glades County Democrat/Courtesy photoStudents participate in School Library WeekWest Glades School students in Mrs. Huysmans kindergarten through fourth-grade classes participated in School Library Week by decorating grocery bags with information and illustrations about their favorite books.

April 12, 2018 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 3 Special to the Glades County Democrat According to a Glades County Sheriffs Ofce report, at some point during the evening hours of April 4 to the early morning hours of April 5, Graham Dairy in Moore Haven had several hundred pounds of insulated copper wire stolen from two of their barns. Deputy Hernandez discovered tire im pressions left by the suspect at the scene and, with the assistance of detectives, tracked the impressions for over 6 miles through neigh boring cane elds to a residence off of Wag on Trail where Daiton Johnson resides. Corroborating surveillance footage, sal vage receipts, the golf cart used and the stripped wire insulation were uncovered in the days following the theft. On April 9, the investigation culminated in the arrest of the 45-year-old on charges of burglary, grand theft and criminal mischief. Johnson is being held at the Glades County Jail on a $47,500 bond. Additional charges may be levied against Johnson in connection with a similar theft pending the outcome of an ongoing inves tigation by Detective Sergeant Joe Sapuppo. Daiton Johnson MH man charged with burglary and grand theft Barbara BrownGlades County Womans Club Even though the Glades County Womans Club is a service club, its not all work and no play for this group of dedicated women. At their regular monthly meeting, President Jenny Allen presented several options for the clubs consideration, for fun get-togethers. The one chosen was a trip to Northport to enjoy a day of relaxation at the Warm Mineral Springs Park. The natural spring maintains a temperature of 85 degrees yearround, and contains an estimated 51 minerals, one of the highest mineral contents of any natural spring in the United States. Admission to the springs is $20. Members will assemble at the First Baptist Church at 9:30 a.m. on April 28 for the trip to Northport. Even though the park furnishes chairs, Mrs. Allen encouraged members to bring folding ones, as there might not be one available if there is a large crowd. Chairwomen for each committee assigned by Mrs. Allen to serve during the club year are: Ways and Means, Priscilla Spooner; Sunshine, Kelly Brantley; Scholarship, Tina Hein; Membership, Shirley Nugent; Publicity, Barbara Brown; Entertainment, Ruby Branch; Legislative, Marina Langdale; Nominating, Kelly Brantley; and Chaplain, Margaret Brown. A special committee for Cancer Funding was appointed by the president. This committee consists of Priscilla Spooner, Dianne Tillery and Beth Grifn. A discussion followed regarding the number of applicants for free breast cancer screening, and the committee will decide eligibility for applicants, as there have been several from counties other than Glades. Monies from the clubs fundraisers are designated for mammograms for men and women (yes, men get breast cancer, too) and scholarships for graduating seniors. The club voted to award two scholarships in the amount of $1000 each, with one to be awarded at Class Night and one at the Scholarship Dinner. Ofcers for the new club year will be elected at the April meeting and installed May 21. The installation will follow a dinner furnished by members of the club in the Fellowship Hall of the First Baptist Church at 6 p.m. GCWC chooses springs Benet serves BBQA benet BBQ for the Patterson Family will take place Friday, April 13, from 11 a.m. 2 p.m. at the Doyle Conner Building, U.S. 27 in Moore Haven.

8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 12, 2018 upon that. Hes still working with the City of Sebastian on the contract, so nothings nal ized, he said. Mr. Ahern added that he was still under contract with Glades County. The chairman also said hed checked with County Attorney Richard Pringle about procedure and that he said commissioners could just recess their regular meeting until later when more information was available so they could take ofcial action if needed without having to advertise and call a special meeting, since the matter already had been put on the regular meeting agenda. Mr. Ahern opened the oor for comments and questions from other commissioners. Donna Storter Long spoke rst, relating that rst of all, I was pretty mad at Mr. Carlisle and I told him that, but I understand. She asked him, If you do accept it, is there a time certain that you already know that would help us decide if we want to wait and talk about it ... ? They want me there May 1, if we can come to terms, he answered. I havent seen the nal draft yet. This is a tough decision, because I love Glades County and I love working with all of you. Its weighing heavy, but I have discussed with them to allow me, if the board wants, to do a consulting agreement where I can come and consult, if they would allow me to come back to the county ... one day a week at least for a month after that to try to keep things moving. He said he could do necessary tasks via internet and phone, if necessary. Mr. Carlisle said he expected to receive a nal proposal on Tuesday afternoon and that the Sebastian City Council would be considering it on Wednesday. Mr. Ahern polled commissioners on when they could meet next and learned only Ms. Long would not be able attend a Friday meeting in person. She said shed call in but pointed out she would not be able to vote by phone if one was taken. None of the other commissioners had much to say, although Tim Stanley threw in, Hopefully, this contract fails tomorrow... which caused everyone to laugh. Ms. Long interjected that she didnt think it would be fair to ask or expect a new employer to let Mr. Carlisle divide his duties, even for one day a week, although Mr. Stanley said, We havent got anybody, so I would be more than glad to have him one day a week ... as long as weve got his advice because theres a whole bunch of stuff on the re that we havent nished yet. Chairman Ahern noted hed already made a list of things in the works that the board would need to keep an eye on or study so that were all on the same page, and Ms. Long said, Mr. Chairman, that was a great thought; perhaps we need Mr. Carlisle to do that whether he comes or goes. The county manager said, Ive already worked on that, tried to remember everything and put it on paper because a lot of stuff is just routine. Ms. Long said she had one other concern, saying she thought the board should rescind Mr. Carlisles authority to hire and re staff until he decided whether he was leaving, putting it into a motion that the board then passed on a 4-1 vote, with Mr. Stanley voting no. training that will spark this areas economic rebirth by providing trained employees for manufacturing and logistics jobs. Interest has waxed and waned over the years as a number of large companies have shown strong interest in the center, then backed away as the recession took its toll. Now the counties are again ready to pool their efforts to make that center, which is located at the junction of U.S. 27 and State Road 78 near the Glades County Sheriffs Ofce and health department, a focal point for growth. Several years ago, the State of Florida provided $3.5 million for the centers rst year and Glades kicked in $500,000 for the building and parking lot, along with another $1 million for infrastructure, including roads, power and water. The facility is currently offering GED and citizenship classes, provided by the Glades County School Board, and commercial driver license classes, run by Suncoast Trucking. At a joint meeting on Thursday, April 5, commissioners, administrators and educators from both counties continued brainstorming about the future of GCRTC and its potential impact on the area. A successful training program like the one envisioned for the center could provide residents with good, solid employment and the county with economic stability. Planners know that goal is not yet in reach, and they know they will need support from outside the immediate area to make it so. One of the topics of discussion was lining up just that kind of support. In previous conversations, the commissioners had discussed hiring a director for the facility. At this joint meeting, however, they were more inclined toward hiring a single administrative person to coordinate the center. The planners had a consensus that the GCRTC should be run through the Local Educational Agency (LEA), keeping control of the project local. The hope, though, is that an experienced educational entity can be found to underwrite and run the project. Planners are looking forward to providing a center like the Immokalee Technical College (known as iTech), on a smaller scale. Collier County Public Schools, with its highly successful iTech facility, is willing to work on the project. In fact, CCPS Superintendent Dr. Kamela Patton is scheduled to visit here in the next few weeks. Assistance is also being sought from Florida Gulf Coast University, Hodges University, Florida Southwestern College, Fort Myers Technical College and other institutions. An experienced educational entity would be able to run the facility and expand into appropriate courses for incoming businesses. Perhaps, a local volunteer from the VISTA program (Volunteers In Service To America), which would not require any local funding, would be useful as well. Planners are seriously considering using money from Hendry, Glades and the Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board (each has pledged $20,000) for three years to cover salary and benets for an adminis trator to coordinate the facility. State Sen. Denise Grimsley is looking at possible funding that might be available from Senate Bill 10, which expedites con struction of a water storage reservoir in the Everglades Agricultural Area. Tuition may also provide some funding. Planners agreed that they need to mar ket the center to area high school students, including Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee and other surrounding counties, to make the project viable. There are many variables to consider, but the commissioners would like to see some additional progress for the fall term. They realize local students are at an econom ic disadvantage and that this center could ultimately provide them with a way of life through a good living in a trade. The two county commissions will meet again on June 12 at 11:30 a.m. in Glades County to continue sharing information and discussion points.
