Hes joined us, and on board today, just started. I dont know if hes just gotten his feet wet; hes probably wet up to his knees already, I believe.

Ordinance Title: AN ORDINANCE OF THE BOARD OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA, AMENDING THE HENDRY COUNTY CODE OF ORDINANCES, MORE SPECIFICALLY, SECTION 1-50-10, NOTICE, AND SECTION 1-51-1, LOCAL PLANNING AGENCY; PROVIDING FOR SEVERABILITY; PROVIDING FOR CONFLICTS OF LAW; PROVIDING FOR CODIFICATION, INCLUSION IN CODE, AND SCRIVENERS ERRORS; AND PROVIDING FOR AN EFFECTIVE DATE. Python hunters eliminate 1,000th snake since March Special to INI Florida On May 22, hunters participating in the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Boards Python Elimi nation Program achieved an important mile stone for this highly successful initiative by eliminating the 1,000th snake. An average of three pythons have been extricated per day from SFWMD lands since the program began in March 2017. Eliminating invasive species such as Burmese pythons is critical to pre serving the rare Everglades ecosystem. Flori da taxpayers have invested billions of dollars to restore the water quality and hydrology of the Everglades. Combating invasive plants and animals is necessary to ensure that this investment results in our shared goals of the overall restoration plan. The success of this program was made possible through a dedicated team ap proach, said SFWMD scientist Mike Kirkland, project manager for the Python Elimination Program. Staff implemented, hunters exe cuted and our state leadership, particularly Gov. Rick Scott, supported a program that ghts for the Everglades every day. Hunter Brian Hargrove dispatched the 1,000th python, an 11-foot-2-inch-long snake. The weigh-in of the milestone snake was broadcast live on SFWMDs Facebook page. Mr. Hargrove, a Miami native who grew up visiting the Everglades as a child, talked about how he used to see the Everglades full of na tive species and how the python has decimat ed the native wildlife. When we would come out here as kids, rabbits would be everywhere, he said. Ive been out here hunting for months and Ive seen one rabbit and 120 pythons. Several hunters turned out at the 1,000th snake weigh-in event to congratulate Mr. Hargrove and bring their own eliminated pythons. In all, seven hunters weighed in a combined total of almost 98 feet worth of eliminated invasive Burmese python. All the pythons eliminated by the program would stretch approximately 7,300 feet or about 1.4 miles and weigh more than 16,500 pounds, or the equivalent of more than 8 tons. To date, all of this has been ac complished with less than $250,000 spent on wages and bounties for the hunters, an aver age expenditure of less than $250 per snake. Congratulations to the South Florida Wa ter Management District, and the many hunt ers that have taken part in this program, on the elimination of their 1,000th invasive Bur mese Python, said U.S. Rep. Francis Rooney, R-Naples. The 12-foot-long python that is hanging in my ofce is a daily reminder of the need to eradicate this species and protect the unique ecosystem of our Everglades. I am currently working with the U.S. Department of Interior and the House Natural Resources Committee to allow for hunting of Burmese pythons within Everglades National Park, as well as to allow the male python tracking program organized by the Conservancy of Southwest Florida. This will speed up the process of eliminating these snakes, which are not native to our area and have no natural predators. In addition to the innovative program ghting the spread of Burmese pythons, the SFWMD Governing Board for years has bud geted millions of dollars in cooperation with other state and federal partners to eradicate and control invasive species such as mela leuca, Brazilian pepper trees and the invasive fern, lygodium. Elected ofcials and celebrities ranging from Rep. Rooney to superstar chef Gordon Ramsey have taken part in the hunt, bring ing international awareness to the issue of this invasive species and the districts efforts to eradicate them. Python hunters were also featured in a Discovery Channel television special highlighting the program. SFWMDs Python Elimination Program fa cilitates the elimination of the invasive snakes on district-owned land. A similar successful program is managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission the Py thon Removal Contractor Program. This pro gram pays qualied individuals to survey oth er specic areas of state-owned land for the pythons, humanely euthanize each python they catch in the eld (according to American Veterinary Medical Association guidelines) and then deposit them at designated drop-off locations. Special to INI Florida/ SFWMD The weigh-in of the 1,000th python captured as part of the SFWMD Python Elim ination Program.

Reections from the Pulpit The trinity: A great mystery and puzzle (and we dont like puzzles!) By The Reverend Samuel S. Thomas, Ph. D.+ Saint Martins Church, Clewiston In one of my residences, I had a coffee table with several small puzzles on it. One of the puzzles was a series of wooden cutouts that made up a block; and the block t inside of a plastic transparent box. People would come and pick up the box, dump out the pieces and then be come frustrated when they could not reas semble the block to t inside of the box. Sometimes, they would play with it all evening, other times they would ask to take it home (permission not given; as sembly by the owner followed!). I was asked to evaluate a young man who was supposed to have attention de cit/hyperactivity disorder. He had been a problem in school; not sitting still, not pay ing attention, wandering around the room, always in motion. I met him with his mother in the room where several puzzles were on the table to be solved. I began by getting some background information from his mother, and then we discussed her sons birth situation, early experiences, childhood illnesses, any pos sible injuries, language development and the like. All the while, he sat there fascinated by the puzzles in front of them, and he pro ceeded to give them his sustained, uninter rupted attention for the 20-or-so minutes that he sat there while his mother and I conferred. He was sitting still for that whole time, and his fascination kept his rapt attention focused on solving tasks involving his co ordination and undivided attention. When we got to testing, he showed the signs of boredom and restlessness that must have been apparent in his classroom settings. My report did not conrm an ADHD or attention decit disorder problem. I, too, am curious about solving puzzles, nding answers, searching for new knowledge. I also have had to come to recognize that there are things I may never know, but I can exist quite well with the knowledge that is available to us. My praise goes out to those who work in the sciences to see that we have a bet ter life, can overcome debilitating diseases, work to make the world a better place. Those are the ones who share with me that there must be an answer to our prob lems and puzzles somewhere and work to solve them; but they also recognize that knowledge can be limited and the quest must always be an ongoing one. Every now and again, we have to revise what we thought we knew and come up with a better way. Im not always sure whether chocolate is good for me or if even a small amount of alcohol is harmful or what the best tech niques are for administering rst aid. My car has become more complicated, and I really dont understand all that makes it go. My last truck had four cylinders and two computers to make it run; I was grate ful that problems were usually minor ones. There was a time that I understood more about how my car ran; but I have kept driving even as their level of compli cation surpasses my ability to understand everything. There is something about mysteries that people just do not like; they must be solved. (Ive never read a mystery novel that didnt have a case solved ending; I cant imagine people buying them!) When it comes to matters of faith; thats an area where belief is essential. This season highlights the Trinity: God is three and God is one. How can that be? Ultimately and nal ly, it is a mystery; it is just something that were not going to solve. The earliest centuries of church history were times of persecution and existence underground. When the Roman emperor Constantine made it legal to be a Christian in 312 A.D., suddenly all of the disconnected groups of faithful found they had grown up with dif ferent beliefs about essential things. It was in 314 A.D. that a rst synod was held and not until 325 A.D. that the Coun cil of Nicea met to try to resolve some of the questions that had arisen over the rst centuries. From this council came the Nicene Creed; it exists as an early statement of what was known. Instead of trying to resolve all of the questions; the creed is an afrmation of this much we know. It has stood ever since and has been the origin of many of the credal statements of churches ever since. The Epistle to the Ephesians (Chapter 4, vss 4-6) is believed to be a credal state ment: One body and one Spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of us all... It is reected in what resulted from Nicea and what has followed. The faithful accepted the mystery of the Trinity; afrming what was evident, not speculating or trying to out-guess what was to be a true mystery. The Lord Himself recognizes that He does not know everything. When asked about the end times, He replied, But of that day and hour, no one knows; not even the angels in Heaven nor the Son, but the Father only (Matthew 24:36). His message was to Be ready (v. 44) and that should be sufcient. We have enough to know what God expects of us; the great mysteries will remain mysterious, but that will not ultimately matter. The Trinity? God is three and God is one. Thats what we know: and its enough! It is how God has been revealed and that has sufced; giving humanity access to His nature and being to know our Cre ator Redeemer Sustainer ever since. Enough said! Obituaries

Tropical storm rainfall results in rapid lake rise By Katrina Elsken INI Florida Heavy rains related to Tropical Storm Alberto sent billions of gallons of water through the St. Lucie lock on the C-44 Canal to the east coast and through the Franklin Lock on the Caloosahatchbee River on the west coast of Florida over the weekend. None of the water sent to the coastal es tuaries came from Lake Okeechobee. Over the weekend, local basin runoff ac counted for about 1.6 billion gallons a day to the St. Lucie and about 1.8 billion gallons per day to the Caloosahatchee River. Meanwhile, heavy rains directly into Lake Okeechobee and runoff from north of Lake Okeechobee have pushed the lake level past 14 feet. One inch on Lake Okeechobee equals approximately 12 billion gallons of water.

By Chris Felker Glades County Democrat CLEWISTON The Glades/Hendry County UF/IFAS Extension Service and the City of Clewiston are conducting a sur vey and in the process of trying to line up growers in preparation for possibly start ing a farmers market offering fresh fruits and vegetables in the area, Agent Gene McAvoy said. Word went out a few weeks ago about the survey, which is aimed to gauge inter est in a farmers market serving the Glades and Hendry county areas around Clew iston and Moore Haven. Its being done through the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Exten sion Service, whose news release about it stated: Your response is important to us and will help determine the feasibility and in terest in participating in a farmers market in Clewiston next fall. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your responses will be anonymous. Taking the survey is easy and smartphone-friend ly please ... copy and paste the web ad dress in your browser. The survey, which is online at https:// ufl.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_7QjmlrveD dwYa57, is being financed by the South west Florida Economic Development Council, to which Mr. McAvoy has already sent a preliminary report. But, he said, The survey is still up. Its kind of interesting because the City of Clewiston was offered a develop ment grant by the State of Florida to ex plore a farmers market, because Clewis ton and Moore Haven are considered to be in a food desert even though were in the midst of some of the biggest vegetable production. But the quandary we face is that our growers are so big that they have to be moving seven to 10 semis of prod uct a day just to keep up with what their production is. Although hes still hoping for further responses from farmers, Mr. McAvoy con ceded: The amount they would sell in Clewiston at a farmers market is really, you know, to put it quite bluntly, is (the amount) that falls off the back of their truck while theyre going from the field to the market. So we didnt have a great response from the growers. The publics response has shown the opposite. I mean, people are hungry for it; they really want it. But, I did have one big grower Magnolia Packing, thats the Hilliard family they expressed inter est in doing it. And they have about 4,000 acres of a variety of vegetables. So that would make a good anchor. And then if we could get some other people to come in behind them, it might could work, still, Mr. McAvoy said. He was reluctant to share his prelim inary report now because although hes submitted it to the Southwest Florida Eco nomic Development Council, I havent gotten any official response back from them. So Id prefer to let them at least comment on it, and accept it, reject it, whatever theyre going to do. Mr. McAvoy encouraged local farmers and residents to go online and take the survey. Extension Service gauging interest in farm market Special to the Glades County Democrat LABELLE The LaBelle location of Florida SouthWestern State College is offering a new program this summer called Curtis Pathway Prep. It is entirely free to students who are ac cepted, and there are 60 seats available. This is a six-week program offered over the summer from June 21 through Aug. 2. It is a non-credit-bearing offering focusing on math and English academic instruction from current college faculty to help prepare students for col lege success. The program will also feature soft skills workshops from the Academic Success Center, library, nancial aid and advising team as well as some social activities. There are three evenings with presentations for parents, which will be available in both English and Spanish. The program meets Mondays and Wednes days 1:30-4:30 p.m. and Tuesdays and Thurs days 1-5:15 p.m. The program is open to rst-time-in-college students (who have been admitted to FSW for a fall semester following their high school graduation) to help ensure that they are col lege-ready and successful in their rst semester. Also, any students who will be enrolled in any Hendry or Glades County high school next year may also apply if they have not yet been able to pass a portion or portions of the PERT test, which allows them access to dual-enrollment classes. This is a tremendous opportunity for any graduating seniors who would benet from additional academic preparation for college. For incoming rst-time college students, the goal will be to enter their freshman semester fully prepared to meet the rigor of college with high success and possibly test into higher-lev el entrance classes by the end of the summer program. For high school students, the goal will be to obtain passing scores on the college entrance test, PERT, allowing them to register for dual-enrollment courses for the fall 2018 semester. FSW offers summer program to rst-time college students
