Woodworks Park is closed


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The condition
of Woodworks Park requires
attention.
Recently the city's building offi-
cial, Travis Reese, went to the park
to survey the necessary work at
the site. He reported to commis-
sioners that the fixture is so unsta-
ble that a man can move the entire
structure three to four inches back
and forthwith one hand.
At the recommendation of the


city manager, commissioners
voted last week to place caution
tape around the park to keep peo-
ple from using it. It is officially
closed until repairs can be made to
the park.
Woodworks Park was built in
1992 as a project spearheaded
largely by the community. It was
designed to be nice outdoor cen-
ter for all ages, with a swing set,
play area and picnic tables fea-
tured at the site with the main
playing area constructed mostly


out of treatedwood.
Over the years the park has
worsened with normal wear and
tear, as well as vandalism, city offi-
cials said.
On Sunday, March 18, a young
child was injured in the play-
ground and required emergency
treatment. The incident prompted
the city manager to take a closer
look at the situation.
The city manager brought the
issue to the attention of the com-
mission the next day during the


city meeting, urging commission-
ers to close the park until repairs
are completed.
"I personally went to do an
inspection of the park and indeed
found the park to be dangerous
and it can be a city liability," Wen-
dell Johnson, the city manager,
said. "My recommendation is to
tape it off, until the park is brought
back to a safe condition."
Commissioners seemed to
agree.
"I think that is a good idea,


being Spring Break kids will con-
tinue to go," said Mayor Mali
Chamness, echoing the manag-
er's concern for the safety of the
children. "That is something we
will want to look into," she said.
While the tape around the facili-
ty warns that the structure isn't safe
to use, city officials would like to
take that one step further, perhaps
with the installation of a six-foot
chain link fence to really deter chil-

Clewiston PD



adds officers


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Two police
trainees graduated from the
Southwest Florida Public Safety
Academy in Ft. Myers on Friday,
March 23 and are gearing up to
begin patrolling the streets in
Clewiston. Chief Don Gutshall
attended the ceremony in sup-
port of the two Clewiston grad-
uating trainee officers.
The two recruits, Clifton
Green and John Herrera, began
the academy in October.
According to officials, the acad-
emy provides a structured les-
son plan that details what an
officer will encounter during
his work, as well as provide
information about how best to
handle a variety of situations,
generally touching on the
major points of law enforce-
ment.
The recruits attended the


course five days a week, from
morning until afternoon.
Before graduating, the
recruits had to demonstrate
that they met state standards
set by the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement. Tests
focused on knowledge in law,
firearms, defensive tactics, driv-
ing, public relations, and other
areas.
,The next -step for the two
recruits is to pass a state certifi-
cation examr..If they pass the
exam, the recruits will be hired
by the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment as new officers.
But it certainly won't be the
end of the road for the officers.
Even after passing their state
exam, according to Police Chief
Don Gutshall,,the new employ-
ees will go through a seven-
week field training program
before they begin answering

CLEWISTON- The 2007
Hendry County Fair has come
and gone and the attractions
have left the city, but the peo-
ple in Clewiston are still talking
about the annual event.
This year's theme was, "Let
the Good Times Roll, Mardi-
Gras."
Streaming ribbons of color,
from the green, purple and
gold beads that were passed
out during the events, to the
costumes of the people and
the floats featured, decorated
the fair.
The fair opened its doors
Friday, March 16, and contin-
ued until Saturday, March 24,
with a host of events featured
between the two dates.
Festival goers enjoyed the
activities, including the
parade, the livestock show and

CLEWISTON - Hundreds of
people were present at this
year's Hendry County Fair to see
the livestock auction.
For the children who had
spent months raising their
prized animals, Friday, March 23
was the big day - the time had
come to see how much money
buyers would pay during the
2007 Hendry County Livestock
Auction.
The kids were happy at the
end of the event, with local busi-
nesses and residents paying top
dollar for the animals,' many of
them offering to purchase sim-
ply to encourage the children.

ladies 60 and older strutting
their stuff on the stage for the
community.
The fair also featured mid-
way rides, game rooms, food
and other attractions for the
entire family.'
One of the biggest attrac-
tions was "The Wall of Death."
That show included complex
motorcycle and go-cart stunts.


Some of the children got $2 a
pound for their animals, while
other noteworthy animals
fetched prices up to $9 a pound.
The buyers themselves
seemed as happy with their pur-
chases as the kids. Some of the
buyers donated the animals
back to the sellers, or resold
them and donated the money to
various causes.
What counts in this auction
arena, organizers said, is
rewarding kids who have
worked for months to raise pigs,
cattle and bulls. Only kids who
have won prizes for their ani-
mals can sell them in the auc-
tion.

smiles of joy after selling the
product of their hard work.
The auction was held at the
Hendry County Fairgrounds.

KENNETH P. KIRCHMAN
A Kenneth P Kirchman, age 72,
died in his Winter Park home on
Tuesday, March 13, 2007.
A Florida native, Mr.
Kirchman. grew up in the Belle
Glade area and had made cen-
i o tral Florida his home for more
than 50 years.
ed . ,- He was a prominent Orlando

Kirchman Corporation, Mr.
Kirchman founded Kirchman
Corporation, a privately held
banking software innovator,
nearly 40 years ago in Altamonte Springs.
He founded Florida Software in 1968 on a shoe string but with the
big vision of providing advanced software that would automate the
millions of transactions a commercial bank handles. He was regard-
ed as a pioneer in this industry and his early efforts were instrumen-
tal in the development of the packaged banking software industry.
Though well-educated and world-traveled, Mr. Kirchman was
known by friends and employees as the quintessential "Florida
Cracker." He was an avid outdoorsman and participated regularly in
international recreational shooting sports in Argentina, Denmark,
England, Ireland, Scotland and Spain. He and wife Deanna spent
much of their leisure time at Lake X, their 10,000-acre ranch, which
is also a wildlife refuge, south of Orlando.,
Mr. Kirchman was known by many as a generous benefactor. In
1979, he contributed the Stetson University's first $1 million gift to
establish the Kirchman Chair of Humanities. His active and commit-
ted interest in the community led him to serve on Stetson
University's Board of Trustees and serve as President of the Alumni
Association. He was also former Director of Public Radio and
Television of Central Florida. He served on former Florida Governor
Bob Graham's Economic Development Task Force and was a Trustee
of Florida House in Washington, D.C.
Mr. Kirchman attended university at Stetson where he earned a
B.S. in Mathematics. He held a business degree from Harvard
Business School. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Law
(LLD) from Stetson. He served as a First Lieutenant in the Guided
Missile Branch of the U.S. Army and, prior to founding Kirchman
Corporation, held positions with Sperry Rand Corporation, The
National Cash Register Company and General Computer Services.
Mr. Kirchman is survived by his wife, Deanna Pitman Kirchman
and niece Victoria Pitman Smith. He is also survived by his three
children and a son-in-law, Kevin Kirchman, Karen Kirchman,
Kimberly (Mark) Fehl. He had two sisters and brothers-in-law,
Arlene (Jack) Griffith and Jane (Nefil) Linden and two brothers and
sisters-in-law Ronald (Linda) Kirchman and Arthur (Glenda)
Kirchman. In addition, he is survived by four grandchildren,
Chantell Calivas, Brent Calivas, Kaiya Fehi and Manin Fehl; 11 nieces
and nephews along with 16 grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
A memorial service was held on Tuesday, March 27 at the family
ranch to celebrate Mr. Kirchman's life for family and friends. The
family requests that no flowers or donations be sent. Condolence
cards can be addressed to the family and sent to P.O. Box 2519,

Company tactics has


government illusion


TALLAHASSEE - Attorney
General Bill McCollum recently
announced that his office has
filed a lawsuit against a South
Florida company based on alle-
gations that the company
implies an affiliation with state
government to solicit funds from
business owners. National Com-
panies Register Corp. solicits
individuals around the country
who have recently formed a cor-
poration in their state or who
have legally registered a ficti-
tious name.
Advertisements sent out by
the company soliciting payment
for access to the company's web
based directory appear to be an
invoice for approximately $600.
The advertisements are
designed such that a consumer
would believe payment of the
fee is part of the procedure of
registering a company for busi-
ness. To further give the illusion
of being an official document,
the document used to contains a
reproduction of the flag for the
state in which the addressee
lived.
Investigators with the Attor-
ney General's Economic Crimes
Division contacted several con-
sumers who had paid the fee to


the company and were unaware
that they had paid a private com-
pany for an alleged service.
Instead, they believed the pay-
ment was a requirement to reg-
ister their company. The Attor-
ney General's Office has already
filed a lawsuit against the com-.
pany's owner, Bernd Taubert,
for similar business practices
associated with Federated Insti-
tute for Patent & Trademark Reg-
istry, another company owned
by Taubert.
Mr. McCollum cautioned busi-
ness owners against paying
invoices sent out by National
Companies Register Corp. and
encouraged individuals to check
with the Florida Department of
State if they have questions
about any of the requirements
associated with forming a corpo-
ration or registering a fictitious
name. He also asked any Floridi-
ans who believe they may have
been victimized by either Nation-
al Companies Register Corp. or
Federated Institute for Patent &
Trademark Registry to contact
the Attorney General's Office by
phone at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-
866-966-7226) or online at
http://myfloridalegal.com.

Norovirus safety reminder issued


TALLAHASSEE - As part of
an ongoing effort to help Floridi-
ans stay healthy, Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) Secretary
Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H.
reminds all Floridians to take the
necessary precautions to avoid
preventable illnesses. One such
illness is norovirus, which is
commonly called the "stomach
flu." While symptoms are simi-
lar to those associated with the
flu (influenza), norovirus is not
related to the flu. Norovirus is
one of several hundred causes of
food poisoning and can easily be
transmitted person to person.
Norovirus is highly conta-
gious and may cause vomiting
and diarrhea. Most people begin
to feel better within one or two
days and have no long term
health effects.
Thorough and frequent hand-
washing is the key to preventing
the spread of gastrointestinal


infections like norovirus," Deputy
State Health Officer Bonita
Sorensen, M.D., M.B.A. said. "This
simple step can help Floridians
avoid numerous illnesses and
ward off preventable sickness."
Floridians can decrease their
chance of coming in contact
with noroviruses by following
these preventive steps:
* Wash hands frequently,
especially after going to the
bathroom, changing diapers,
before eating and prior to
preparing food
* Carefully wash fruits and
vegetables, and cook foods thor-
oughly before eating them
* Thoroughly clean and dis-
infect contaminated surfaces
immediately after an episode of
illness by using a bleach-based
household cleaner.
* Immediately remove and
wash clothing or linens that may
be contaminated with the virus


after an episode of illness (use
hot water and soap).
* Flush or discard any vomit
and/or stool in the toilet and
make sure that the surrounding
area is kept clean.
Persons infected with
norovirus should not prepare
food while they have symptoms
and for three days after they
recover from their illness. Food
that may have been contaminat-
ed by an ill person should be
thrown away.
DOH promotes and protects
the health and safety of all people
in Florida through the delivery of
quality public health services and
the promotion of health care stan-
dards. For more information
regarding disease prevention,
please visit www.doh.state.fl.us.
For additional information, visit
www.cdc.gov and select

United Way surpasses campaign goal


FORT MYERS - Larry Hart,
Chairperson of the 2006-07 Unit-
ed Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades Counties campaign, is
pleased to announce that the
2006-2007 Campaign has been a
great success. As volunteer Cam-
paign Chair, Mr. Hart has over-
seen the efforts of more than
1,200 volunteers as they worked
to exceed this year's fundraising
goal of $6.6 million. The final
amount raised is $6,903,088.
That is $629,000 more than last
year's campaign and a 10 per-
cent increase.
"I personally want to thank all
the caring individuals who made
the important decision to con-
tribute to United Way," said Mr.
Hart. "Our community continues
to amaze me with their over-
whelming generosity. As a result,
our community will be a better
place for all of us to live and work."
"We are very proud to be part

of a caring and generous com-
munity," said Cliff Smith, Presi-
dent of United Way of Lee,
Hendry and -Glades Counties.
"This is the 14th consecutive
year that our United Way has
reached goal and the ninth year
in a row that we have had a dou-
ble digit increase in giving. We
are pleased that we will not only
be able to fully fund our 67 part-
ner agencies, but we will be able
to support them with additional
funds so that they can help even
more of our friends, neighbors,
families and co-workers right
here in our community."
The funds raised during the
United Way Campaign will sup-
port the work of 67 agencies and
120 programs that help our
friends, neighbors and co-work-
ers right here in our community.
Agencies like Abuse Counseling
Treatment, Salvation Army, Chil-
dren's Home Society, Boys and


Girls Club, and LARC serve a
diverse range of needs in our
community such as nurturing
youth and children, strengthen-
ing families, improving health
and independence for the sick
and elderly, helping the disabled
reach their potential and reach-
ing people in crisis. Last year the
67 United Way Agencies helped
over 300,000 people in the com-
munity. Because of the dedicat-
ed and large number of volun-
teers, United Way, can keep
fundraising costs extremely low
and make sure that donations
are being spent effectively with
the most impact in the commu-
nity. All of the money donated to
United Way stays here in the
community and helps people
right here in our community.

Florida, Inc. (CCS), is searching for
children who were cared for by the
non-profit agency in the late 1960s
or early 1970s for a "reunion" party.
"These are the first children
who received services from the
agency and we thought it would be
great to have them reunite for an
afternoon of fun," said President &
CEO RheaB. Mike of CCS.

TALLAHASSEE - Thou-
sands of handprints created by
children in Southwest Florida
will hang from the Capitol
Rotunda in Tallahassee during
Children's Week March 25-30.
Children in local child care
centers designed brightly-col-
ored paper cut-outs of their
hands that will be displayed as
symbolic reminders to elected
officials to address legislative
issues that will enable children
to grow and develop to their
fullest potential.


The handprints were collect-
ed by Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Inc. for the Early Learn-
ing Coalition of Southwest Flori-
da, which will transport the
handprints to Tallahassee and
coordinate the local Children's
Week celebration.
Child Care of Southwest Flori-

anniversary of providing child care
services to families throughout
Southwest Florida. The agency
works in partnership with the
Early Learning Coalition of South-


week


west Florida, which coordinates
all early childhood education
efforts in the Lee, Collier, Glades,
and Hendry counties.

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and its parent company,
FPL Group, have long believed that meeting customers' needs for
reliable electricity at stable prices must go hand-in-hand with
protecting the environment now and in the future.
The FPL Glades Power Park will be an advanced clean coal
technology power plant in Glades County, Florida. As FPL moves
ahead with this project, the company will proceed with the same
smart and forward-thinking decisions that have earned respect
from a variety of key industry observers.
For example, FPL Group is ranked #1 among electric and gas
utility companies in FORTUNE magazine's '"America's Most
Admired Companies,�" receiving top marks across all categories,
including innovation and social responsibility. In addition, the
company has received, among other awards: the electric industry's
top honor, the Edison Award; a Global Energy Award as "Renewable
Company of the Year;" and the Service One" Award for top-rated
customer service.
In January 2007, FPL Group became a founding member of the
U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP). This alliance of


U.S.-based leading companies and environmental organizations
is calling on the federal government to approve mandatory
reductions in greenhouse gas emissions as a way to combat
global warming.
The FPL Glades Power Park will help secure Florida's energy future,
be protective of the environment and good for Glades County.
* Helping Secure Florida's Future - FPEs customers benefit from
reliability that is significantly better than the national average.
In striving for an uninterrupted power supply for its customers
now and in the future, FPL must continue to diversify the
sources of fuel to generate electricity. And the new state-of-the-
. art power plant in Glades County will help enhance fuel diversity.
* Protective of the environment - FPL Group is the world leader in
renewable power generation. And in Florida, nearly three-quarters
of the power FPL generates comes from clean-burning natural
gas and emissions-free nuclear energy. A small portion of FPIs
power is currently generated using renewable fuels, and the
company continues to encourage the development of renew-
ables. FPL Glades Power Park will be the cleanest coal power


plant in the nation and will be designed to incorporate even
more advanced emissions-reduction technologies as they
become commercially viable.
* Good for Glades County - The FPL Glades Power Park will
employ an annual average of 1,600 workers during five years of
construction, and 180 full-time permanent workers. The plant
will also contribute an average of more than $21 million annually
in property taxes to support schools and government services in
Glades County. Resolutions of support for the project have
already been issued by the Moore Haven City Council, Glades
County Commission, Glades Economic Development Council,
School Board of Glades County, Hendry County Economic
Development Council, Clewiston Chamber of Commerce and
Florida's Heartland Rural Economic Development Initiative.
FPL is working every day to ensure that it provides its customers
with reliable electric service at stable prices while being proactive
in protecting the environment and contributing to local
economies where it has facilities. For more information on FPL
and the future FPL Glades Power Park, please visit www.FPL.com.

She thought she could provide

According to Mr. Johnson, in the
past three years, only two accidents
have been reported at Woodworks

ensure all residents' safety, he said.
"This measure of closing the
park is just proactive," the manager


said. "In order to bring the park

Handle eggs with proper precautions and care


I love eggs. They are truly one
of nature's wonders. They are
inexpensive and an amazing
source of nutrition. A large egg
only has about 70 calories.
Eggs are a good source of
protein. They contain thiamin,
riboflavin, folate, Vitamin A and
Vitamin D. They also contain
choline, which is necessary for
good brain function.
Eggs come in a natural con-
tainer that is pretty effective. But
some food safety precautions are
still needed. The following infor-
mation on egg food safety came
from the Egg Nutrition Center.
What does the date on the
egg carton mean?
Egg cartons with the USDA
grademark must display a
"Julian date." the date the eggs
were packed. Although not
required, they may also carry an
expiration date beyond which
the eggs should not be sold, but
are still safe to eat. On cartons
with the USDA grademark, this
date can not exceed 30 days
after the eggs were packed in
the carton. Depending on the
retailer, the expiration date may
be less than 30 days. Eggs
packed in cartons without the
USDA grademark are governed
by the laws of their states.
How long are eggs safe to eat
after purchase?
Fresh shell eggs can be stored
in their cartons in the refrigera-
tor for four to five weeks beyond
the carton's Julian date with
minor loss of quality. Once an
egg begins to age, it loses mois-
ture through its porous shell and
begins to dry. The membranes
that hold the egg structure begin
to loosen and the yolk may not
be anchored in the center of the
white once the egg is broken. An
older egg would be most appro-
priate for a mixed dish, a batter
or a hard cooked egg which
should be easier to peel than a
freshly laid egg.
How long are eggs that have


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken


been refrigerated, safe to eat?
Raw eggs maintain their
freshness for four to five weeks
after purchase if kept refrigerat-
ed continuously.
How long are hard cooked
eggs that have been refrigerated,
safe to eat?
A hard cooked egg can safely
be refrigerated for up to one week.
How does Salmonella infect
eggs?
Salmonella bacteria are
found in the intestinal tracts of
animals, birds, reptiles, insects
and humans. Salmonella may be
found on the outside of the egg
shell before the egg is washed or
it may be found inside the egg if
the ben was infected. It is esti-
mated that one egg in 20,000
eggs may contain Salmonella
which is a 0.005 percent con-
tamination rate. Eggs contain
natural antimicrobial substances
in the egg white, and all eggs are
washed and sanitized before
they are packed. Egg recipes
properly prepared in individual
servings and promptly eaten are
rarely a problem. Inadequate
refrigeration, improper handling
and insufficient cooking are all
factors that have contributed to
disease outbreaks. Salmonella is
destroyed by heat. Eggs that
have been handled and cooked
properly should not cause
human illness.
What is pooling and why is it
not recommended?
The pooling of eggs, which is
a common practice where eggs
are broken out of their shell,


mixing egg white and yolk, then
held together in large quantities.
This practice removes the egg's
natural barriers and creates a
nutrient-rich medium that is
ideal for bacterial growth. Lack
of washing hands and cutting
boards with warm soapy water
is another contributing factor in
approximately one third of the
U.S. food borne illness out-
breaks reported by the Center
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC). .
How should eggs be refriger-
ated?
Refrigerate raw shell eggs in
their cartons on the middle or
lower inside shelf, not on the
door, and away from any meat
that might drip juices or any raw
produce that might contact
eggshells. Cover or wrap well
any egg mixtures or leftover
cooked egg dishes. For all per-
ishable foods, including eggs
and egg containing dishes, allow
no more than two hours at room
temperature for preparation and
serving, 30 minutes to one hour
when it's 85 degrees Fahrenheit
or hotter without refrigeration.
I just realized I left the egg
carton on the kitchen counter
overnight. Are the eggs safe to
use?
The general rule is that if food
items are at room temperature
for more than two hours, the
safest thing to do is to discard the
product. If you leave eggs any-
where that is not refrigerated, the

Moore Haven, Florida 334'


best thing to do is throw those
eggs away and buy a new carton.
What is an adequate temper-
ature to cook an egg?
Egg white coagulates
between 144 and 149 degrees
Fahrenheit, egg yolk coagulates
between 149 and 158 F and
whole eggs between 144 and
158 F. Plain whole eggs without
added ingredients are pasteur-
ized but not cooked by bringing
them to 140 F and maintaining
that temperature for three-and-
one-half minutes. According to
the FDA Food Code, eggs for
immediate consumption can be
cooked to 145 F for 15 seconds.
If the eggs are to be used in a
recipe with other food items,
dilute the eggs with liquid or
other ingredients, such as milk,
or sugar (at least �V cup liquid or
sugar per egg as in custard) and
cook the egg mixture to 160
degrees Fahrenheit, which will
destroy harmful bacteria in a
few seconds. Adequate cooking
brings eggs and other foods to a
temperature high enough to
destroy bacteria that might be
present.
Can shell eggs be pasteurized
or irradiated to destroy Salmo-
nella?
A processor can pasteurize
shell eggs if FDA has approved
the process. Pasteurized shell
eggs are available in some areas
in the U.S. Shell eggs have
recently been approved for irra-
diation by the U.S. Food and

Drug Administration but are not
yet available.
Are egg products pasteur-
ized?
All egg products are required
by law to . be pasteurized.
Approximately one-third of all
eggs produced in the U.S. today
are broken and further
processed to make egg products
which are sold as retail or food-
service items or ingredients for
commercial food manufactur-
ers. These may be whole liquid
egg, egg whites, or egg yolks,
and may be liquid, frozen or
dried. The safety of egg products
is regulated by the Food Safety
Inspection Service of the USDA
and is ensured by mandatory
pasteurization to destroy poten-
tially harmful pathogens. Egg
products are readily available for
food service facilities to use and
offer a convenient alternative to
using raw shell eggs when large
quantities are needed.
What should you consider
when purchasing eggs?
Always buy eggs from a
refrigerated case. Choose eggs
with clean, uncracked shells.
Don't buy out-of-date eggs. The
USDA grade shield on the carton
means that the eggs were grad-
ed for quality and checked for
weight under the supervision of
a trained USDA grader. State
agencies monitor compliance
for egg packers who do not use
the USDA grading service.

related to food safety?
Variation in egg color is due
to many factors. A cloudy white
is a sign that the egg is very
fresh. A clear egg white is an
indication that the egg is aging.
Pink or iridescent egg white indi-
cates spoilage and should not be
consumed. A rupture of one or
more small blood vessels in the
yolk may cause blood spots at
the time of ovulation. It does not
indicate the egg is unsafe to eat.
The color of the yolk varies in
shades of yellow depending
upon the diet of the hen. If she
eats plenty of yellow/orange
plants the yolk with be a darker
yellow than if she eats white
cornmeal, a colorless diet. A
green ring on a hard cooked yolk
is result of overcooking and is
caused by sulfur and iron com-
pounds in the egg reacting on
the yolk's surface. The green
color can also be caused by a
high amount of iron in the cook-
ing water. Scrambled eggs held
too long on a steam table or at
too high a temperature can also
develop a green tint. The green
color is safe to eat.
How is the egg industry work-
ing to promote egg safety?
Egg industry programs start by
keeping breeder flocks Salmonel-

Big 0 Birding Festival comes to Glades County


Festival continues
through Sunday
GLADES COUNTY - Writer,
naturalist and activist Susan
Cerulean is teaming up with nature
photographer John Moran for a
special keynote presentation Satur-
day, March 31, during the sixth
annual Big 0 Birding Festival, slated
for Friday, March 30 to April 1, in
Moore Haven.
The catered keynote dinner will
follow a book-signing reception at
6 p.m. at the Clubhouse at Glades
Resort offS.R. 80 near LaBelle.
Ms. Cerulean's latest book is a
nature memoir entitled, "Tracking
Desire: A Journey After Swallow-
tailed Kites," published by the Uni-
versity of Georgia Press in March
2005. Besides offering a pilgrimage
through the much-reduced home-
land of the swallow-tailed kite, the
book weaves science, family histo-
ry and interior musings with the
fabric of the kite's life history.
Tracking Desire was named Edi-
tors' Choice by Audubon maga-
zine (March 2005).
With the decision to push the
festival back to late March, early
April, which coincides with the
return of the swallow-tailed kites
to nest at Fisheating Creek, select-
ing a keynote speaker enamored
of the bird and the area was a no-
brainer, according to Glades
County Economic Development
Council Director Tracy Whirls,
who chairs the Big 0 Birding Festi-
val committee and works with the
Hendry County Tourism Develop-
ment Council and Clewiston
Chamber of Commerce each year
to organize the joint Glades Coun-
ty/Hendry County event.
Sharing the keynote spotlight
will be renowned nature photogra-
pher, writer and editor Moran,
whose latest book, "Journal of
Light: The Visual Diary of a Florida


Submitted photo
Several popular tours, including the ever popular "Owl Hoot," and a "Regional Birds" Tour
led by Audubon's Dr. Paul Gray, as well as a tour of Diner Island Wildlife Management Area
remain on tap, for the sixth annual Big 0 Birding Festival, slated for Friday, March 30-April 1,
in Moore Haven.


Nature Photographer," a 20-year
collection of photos and essays,
was published by University Press
of Florida in 2004.
"Ms. Cerulean spent a great
deal of time working with
researchers tracking the swallow-
tail kites roosting at Fisheating
Creek back when Lykes still con-
trolled the wildlife management
area and speaks fondly of Glades
County residents she met during
her visits," Ms. Whirls said. "Simi-
larly, Mr. Moran visited Fisheating
Creek last summer to take pictures
for a calendar project. This special
collaboration is a must see for nat-
uralists, photography enthusiasts


and birders alike."
The double header keynote
address is the centerpiece of a
weekend planned to please bird-
ers, naturalists and art lovers alike.
Kicking off the lecture series to
be held at the Doyle Conner Build-
ing in Moore Haven during the Big
0 Birding Festival, Friday, March 30,
is renowned bird artist Lydia C.
Thompson. A native of Natchez,
Mississippi, Ms. Thompson began
her studies of art, birds and nature
along the banks of the
Mississippi. She earned her Bache-
lor of Arts Degree from Mississippi
State University in 1976, and after
several years of extensive traveling


and continued studies, she settled
on St. Simons Island, Ga. One of the
most recognized and loved artists in
the coastal area, Lydia is also a pop-
ular columnist for the "Jekyll Gold-
en Islander," and executive director
for the Georgia Colonial Coast Bird-
ing and Nature Festival.
Aided by a bald eagle, burrow-
ing owl, caracara and other birds of
prey native to the region, Lynda
White of the Audubon Birds of Prey
Center, will give a presentation on
the Center's Eaglewatch volunteer
citizen scientist program at noon
on Saturday, March 31. Eagle
Watch is designed to educate vol-
unteer participants in general eagle


nesting biology, applicable laws,
the identification of nest threats,
monitoring techniques and the ver-
ification of previously unrecorded
active eagle nests. This data is com-
piled and used to assist the state's
Mid-winter Annual Bald Eagle Nest-
ing Survey as well as the U.S Fish
and Wildlife Service.
Wrapping up the Big 0 Birding
Festival lecture series, Mark Kiser,
Birding Trail Coordinator for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, will give
a special "mini keynote" pres-
entation on the Great Florida Bird-
ing Trail, at noon Sunday, April 1,
before leading adventuresome
birders on a birding by canoe visit
to Fisheating Creek campground
that afternoon.
The stellar cast of speakers
will augment a series of tours
built around the real stars of the
Big 0 Birding Festival-the more
than 300 species of birds which
flock to Hendry and Glades
County each spring.
"Historically, birders had to
choose between attending lectures
and attending tours, which went on
simultaneously," Ms. Whirls said.
"This year, we will have birding
tours in the morning, followed by a
lecture with lunch, followed by an
afternoon tour, followed by dinner."
Several popular tours, including
the ever popular "Owl Hoot" and a
"Regional Birds Tour" led by
Audubon's Dr. Paul Gray, as well as
a Tour of Diner Island Wildlife Man-
agement Area remain on tap, while
a tour of the Hendry County STA-5
with Hendry-Glades Audubon has
been added this year, along with
the guided bird by canoe excur-
sion. Transportation will be provid-
ed to each of the tours, as well as
the keynote dinner on Saturday.
The annual "Arts and Crafts"
Festival at the Doyle Conner Build-
ing, which opens Friday afternoon
and continues through Sunday, will


feature nature photography by
John Moran, etchings by birding
artist Lydia Thompson, and other
birding-related items courtesy of
the gift shop concessionaire from
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.
"Ms. Thompson has graciously
agreed to donate a set of her lovely
bird cards, a $20 value, to be given
as a door prize to some lucky festi-
val goer," Ms. Whirls said, noting
that admission to the arts and crafts
show is free, and all attendees will
be issued tickets for the door prize
drawings. "Other vendors offering
a variety of craft items, products
and services to festival goers will
also donate door prizes."
Bill Johnson of Lake Placid is
returning this year as well, bringing
his painted wood and glass decora-
tive and practical items. The Glades
County Woman's Club will return
with their perennial festival favorite
barbecued wild pork dinners and
will also be offering a door prize, as
will Palmdale author Nancy Dale,
who's returning with her book,
"Where the Swallowtail Kite Soars:
The Legacies of Glades County,
Florida and the Vanishing Wilder-
ness," and her new book, "Would
Do, Could Do and Made Do: The
Florida Pioneer 'Cow Hunters'
Who Tamed the Last Frontier."
Also returning are Sherree Green-
wood, with Jewels by Jules and
Sherree, handcrafted gemstone
jewelry and nature note cards.
Admission to the arts and crafts
show is free and open to the public.
Drawings for items donated for the
festival will be held throughout the
day Saturday. Some booth space is
still available. For more informa-
tion, phone Tracy Whirls or Valerie
Jacobs at (863) 946-0300.

Pahokee Track Program looks for big season Sports in Brief


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - For Pahokee
Girls Track Coach Cathy Sieder
and Boys Track Coach John
Ford, this season is to them
about the girls and boys teams
reaching their maximum poten-
tial.
Both coaches said that the
teams will be working together
this season, something that not
all programs are able to do.
Coach Seider said that her
goal for the girls' team is to be
competitive throughout the sea-
son.
Her team is small this season,
with only nine girls in competi-
tion. However, Coach Seider
said that the girls are young and
will hold their own.
A track coach since 1993,
Coach Seider expects her girls to
come to practice everyday and
work hard so it will pay off dur-
ing their track meets.
The coach also said that their
hard work translates off the field
as well.
"Our girls are role models in
school and on the field," said the
girl's coach.
Monshakeria Young, one of
the nine athletes that are in com-
petition, echoed the sentiments
of her fellow teammates.
"Our goal is to go to the state
meet and do our best in each
event that we qualify in," said
Ms. Young.
Here are three athletes to
look forward to this season:
* Hentoya Parker, a fresh-
man, will be competing in the
4x400 and 4x800 relay teams, as
well as the 800 meter races


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee Boy's Track Coach John Ford said that he predicts
Chiquita Smith, an eighth grade track athlete, will be the
track athlete of the year by 2010.


* Sophomore Adrianisha
Seurry will be participating in
the 4x100 and 4x400 relay
teams, as well as the 400 meter
races.
* Rickura Lendale, who is a
sophomore, will focus on
throwing the shot-put in her
meets.
All three girls said that they


want to make to the state finals
in all of their events.
Coach Ford said that he
expects his boys to reach their
individual levels of success. The
boys' coach said that he wants
the athletes to beat their person-
al best times, meet by meet.
"As a former professional ath-
lete, I know that success doesn't


come in one day," said Coach Ford.
The Pahokee boy's track
coach, who has been coaching
for 11 .years, said that being
mentally tough will enable the
boys to be focused throughout
the season.
"One thing that works for me
is that the mind will last a lot
longer than the body in battle,"
said Coach Ford.
Here's a look at three athletes
in competition:
* Senior Dwight Bentley said
that he aims to get better in his
speed and conditioning as the
season goes along. He will be
participating in the 400 meter
races, as well as being part of
the 4x100 and 4x400 relay
teams.
9 Martavious Odoms, a jun-
ior, said that he hopes to
improve in all facets of track this
season. He will be competing in
the 100 meter races, as well as
joining Mr. Bentley in the 4x100
and 4x400 relay teams.
* Dmitri Benoit, who is a sen-
ior, saio that he hopes to focus
on mastering his throwing tech-
niques and staying conditioned
to make great throws in compe-
tition. He will be throwing in the
shot-put and discus events
throughout the season.
Coach Ford said that he
wants the boys to exhibit dedi-
cation, determination and disci-
pline. He said that it will go a
long way toward winning and
achieving success in the sport.
"A collective of small victories
equals success," said Coach
Ford.

New weight record in
fishing tourney
A new Bass Busters Tourna-
ment record was set by Jimmie and
Jared McMillian of Belle Glade,
with a one-day total of 39.61
pounds on the second day of the
tournament as well with 64.93
pounds with 10 fish caught for the
two-day total.
The McMillians weighed in their
largest bass caught during the two-
day tournament held on March 24
and 25, at 9.48 pounds. Others in
the remaining fish catch weighed
8.15 lbs., 8.9 lbs., 8 7 lbs., 7.59 lbs
and 6.83 lbs. Congratulations for an
outstanding job and for winning
the $5,100 prize.
The next Bass Busters Super
Buck Tournament will be held on
April 21 and 22 in Clewiston.
Why wait, join the
adventure race
Some people have remarked
that they would like to join the
Adventure Race at the Black Gold
Jubilee, but they are not in shape.
However, if you can ride a bike, run
3-5 miles at any speed and canoe if
the lake is high enough, you qualify.
Remember the raft races? They
weren't about athleticism. People
got stuck in the middle of the canal
and some rafts actually sunk, but
those were the good times. They
were about fun and that's exactly
what the adventure race is all about.
So, find a team of two - father
and son, mother and daughter or
three, or even go it alone on the
morning of April 21. Try some-
thing new at the Black Gold
Jubilee. To enter, register at
www.torryisland.com or call


Kenny Luta at (561) 992-5813.

NFL star Anquan Boldin's Q-Fest to impact Glades youth next week


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - On Thursday,
April 5 and Friday, April 6, Paho-
kee will be welcoming NFL super-
star and native Anquan Boldin,
along with other NFL stars.
The Q-Fest, in its third year of
operation, promises to bring in
many people from the Glades
area and beyond, according to the
organizers of the Anquan Boldin
Q81 Foundation.
Mr. Boldin, a graduate of Paho-
kee High School, started the foun-


dation in 2004. The foundation's
primary goal is to expand educa-
tional and life opportunities for
underprivileged youth.
The Anquan Boldin Q81 Foun-
dation -carries the mission
through scholarship funds,
awarded yearly to help graduating
students attend college and create
a brighter future for themselves
and their families, according to
the foundation organizers.
Andre Russell, the marketing
director for the Anquan Boldin
Foundation, said that Mr. Boldin


annually donates $10,000 to his
alma mater, Pahokee High
School. According to Mr. Russell,
Mr. Boldin also makes donations
to Glades Central High School.
During the autograph session,
scheduled to be held April 5, from
5 to 6 p.m. at Pahokee High
School, fans will get a chance to
see the football players, including
Mr. Boldin and other players
attending.
A celebrity basketball game
will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the
high school gymnasium, with


NFL stars Larry Fitzgerald, Byron
Leftwich, Eric Green, Edgerrin
James, Devin Hester and many
others to participate in the event.
"For every parent/guardian in
the Glades area, they should take
the opportunity to attend the Q-
Fest with their children," said Mr.
Russell. "I want the youth to get
the full benefit of the true mean-
ing of stewardship."
The next day, on Friday, April 6,
beginning at noon, there will be
an event entitled "Fun-Day-In-
The-Park," to be held at the Martin


Luther King Jr. Park in Pahokee.
The gala will include some of
the NFL stars, as well as live enter-
tainment, food and drinks, con-
test giveaways, face paintings and
more, according to the organizers
of the Anquan Boldin Foundation.
Some of the event sponsors
include Coca-Cola and Schu-
macher Automotive.
There is limited seating and
gates will be closed after the
capacity of the gym is filled. For
the autograph signing and the
celebrity basketball game, visitors


should plan to arrive before 5
p.m.
"Last year, it was good," said
Tammy Jackson, with the Anquan
Boldin Foundation. "This year, it
will be better."
For more information about
the Q-Fest or the Anquan Boldin
Q81 Foundation, contact Tammy
Jackson at either (561) 755-3560
or (561) 371-1430. Information is

Palm Sunday, also April Fool's Day Area Church News in Brief


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Palm Sunday is the beginning
of a very special week in the
Church calendar: Easter Week.
For Christians it - 11
is a time to / .
recount the
great events . ,
that 'have . =1
changed the
world.
It is a time - /
of triumphal
entry into
Jerusalem for Samuel S.
Jesus, then a Thomas
last supper
with His disciples, an arrest and
trial, then being crucified and
buried, but that isn't the end. That
Sunday, He appears and suddenly
the triumphal entry that led to a
tragedy and death is a triumph
after all.
Sometime back, I heard of a
janitor in a restaurant who every-
one regarded as being "slow."
Every now and again, a well-to-do
businessman would come to
have lunch with his friends. He'd


call the janitor over and hold out
his hands with two coins; a nickel
and a dime. He'd say "Look, you
can pick one and have it." The
janitor would look and pause,
and then pick up the nickel.
The businessman would laugh
with his friends and explain "He
thinks because the nickel is bigger
it's worth more!"
One customer got the janitor
aside and said "Look, they're
laughing at you because you take
the nickel and it's worth less. Why
don't you surprise them one day
and take the dime?" The janitor
replied "Because the first time I
take the dime, he'll never let me
take one any more."
The janitor saw beyond the
businessman all of the time; the
story of the week coming is see-
ing beyond the tragedy, the injus-
tice, the sinful nature of people,
the cruelty of the world and see-
ing what God saw. The triumphal
entry into Jerusalem by the Lord
and His disciples was a triumph
after all. Just when those who
would have gotten rid of Jesus
were about to celebrate, the Lord
appeared and it was their "tri-
umph" that was a defeat.


This year Palm Sunday comes
on April 1 - April Fool's Day!
There is something appropriate
about that! The "joke" is on those
who thought they knew how to
get rid of their problem, on those
who would mock and scorn,
those who were so sure they were
"right" and those who would try
to do away with the Lord who
loved them in spite of it all. The tri-
umph-tragedy-triumph-after-all.
So many of the great things in
our lives are like that too. The "tri-
umph" of a marriage, and then
one day the honeymoon is over,
and then working through really
getting married, and then the tri-
umph of a true love far beyond
the early infatuation - there's a
Holy Week and Resurrection
story too.
Many who begin careers with
idealized views of being great suc-
cesses in their fields, and then
learning to cope with all of the
things that come up, and then
dealing with all of the distractions
and detours that go with it, and
being the professional in spite of
all of the things that would side-
track along the way. Many begin
their journey in faith with great


ideals, only to have a "dark night
of the soul" and then keep at it in
spite of questions and doubts,
and find God in their lives in a
new and more wonderful way.
The Lord spoke of it all as He
was sharing with His disciples;
"But a time is coming, and has
come when you will be scat-
tered...you will leave me all
alone. Yet I am not alone, for my
Father is with Me. I have told you
these things so that in me you
may have peace. In this world you
will have trouble. But take heart! I
have overcome the world (John
16:32-33)." Faith teaches us to
look beyond; looking beyond the
moments of initial excitement
and joy, looking beyond the
tragedies that happen to us, and
looking for the final triumph. The
Holy Week is looking to the final
victory of Resurrection and our
celebration with God.
Our gift of faith helps us see
beyond and have a new life: The
Lord's message of "Take heart, I
have overcome the world" is for
all of the faithful who still seek
Him.


Resurrection Faith, an Easter Story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Every year around this time,
my thoughts turn towards
Stephen. Stephen was one of
those special youths who touched
my life. He was energetic. He was
a leader. He had an open heart for
the Lord, and he loved helping
make things happen in the youth
group. And if that wasn't enough,
he had a cute older sister. I could-
n't have asked for much more as a
single young minister.
Around Easter, God blessed me
with a program that Stephen really
took to heart. I gave everyone an
empty Leggs container (the ones
shaped like eggs), and challenged
them to go find something that
symbolized new life and place it in
their "egg". We ended up with
flowers and insects and all kinds
of offerings. I then showed them
an empty egg and shared with
them about the tomb being empty
and how that meant new life for
us all. Stephen liked the illustra-


tion so much that he started hand-
ing out empty eggs at school, shar-
ing with the recipients about the
empty tomb
and its' mean-
ing. He called
his eggs "resur- r
reaction eggs".
Then,
Stephen came
out of remis-
sion. In six .
weeks, I saw a .. -
healthy, ener- John
getic young Hicks
man become a Hicks
puffy, lethargic mass. Although
the cancer affected Stephen's
body, it did not affect his spirit. He
still had a positive outlook and still
loved to share resurrection eggs
with those around him.
Stephen eventually slipped into
a coma and was admitted to the
hospital. One day as I was heading
to the church, I got the inkling to
stop at the hospital to see him. As I
went up to the floor, I met
Stephens' dad, who with tears in
his eyes shared, "John, my son is


dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position making
whimpering sounds like a little
puppy. Not knowing what else to
do, I held Stephens' hand and
started to pray. I don't know the
time frame, but I suddenly noticed
that the whimpering had stopped.
I looked up and saw Stephen
looking at me. I will never forget
his look or what he told me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later Stephen did
go to be with Jesus. But his words
of assurance stayed in my heart.
The church was filled to overflow-
ing with students and young peo-
ple giving testimony after testimo-
ny about how Stephen's faith had
touched their lives. Many came
with the resurrection eggs that
Stephen had given them. One of
the resurrection eggs was even
placed in his coffin. Stephen's
body we placed in the earth, but
Stephen's spirit had already been


claimed - he had gone to be with
Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Ga., stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life dur-
ing the Easter Season. At its base is
a plaque remembering Stephen
Haight. It's a tribute to a young
man who touched many lives not
only with his resurrection eggs,
but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life. Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you. And remember, when the
day comes, as people with resur-
rection faith, we can claim and
proclaim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus." Alleluia
and Amen!

Steward your influence


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Years ago a church song
truthfully noted, "Someone is
watching your light." What we
do affects others. The same with
what we believe. Our attitudes
and dispositions rub off on oth-
ers. This is true whether our
influence is good or bad.
In the Old Testament the
righteous priest Jehoida
removed the wicked usurper
(Athaliah) and put the rightful
heir (eight-year-old Joash) on
the throne. As long as Jehoida
lived, Joash was good, but after
the priest died, others influenced
him the wrong way.
At Antioch, Peter was influ-
enced (pressured) by Jews not
to eat with Gentile Christians and
Peter's actions affected others
(even Barnabas).
Judas Iscariot, who carried
the group money-bag and took
from it, covetously criticized the
women for pouring such expen-
sive ointment on Jesus, calling it
a waste. His words sounded so
sensible that the other apostles
added their criticism.
In the midst of idolatrous
times, Joshua said he and his
family were going to serve Jeho-
vah and many others followed
his good example.
Though Solomon had long
been good, in time he became
idolatrous through the influence of


the foreign wives he had married.
Influence was a powerful fac-
tor in Bible days and it still is. If
you become a Christian, it will
result in others being Christians.
If as a Christian you set a good
example, there will be others
who will follow; it will have an
effect on others. If you preach
the Word faithfully, it will lead
others. If you start missing
church services, so will others.
So we must steward the mat-
ter of our influence. It is part of
life, a part of our potential, and
something for which we will
give account. It's time for you to
look at who and what are influ-
encing you and how, and at the
same time what kind of example
you have been setting for others
to follow. Paul's example was
such that he could write to the
Philippian Christians and say,
"Those things, which ye have
both learned and received and
heard and seen in me, do: and
the God of peace shall be with
you" (Phil. 4:9). Can you say to
others as he said to the Corinthi-
ans, "Be ye followers of me,
even as I also am of Christ" (I
Cor. 11:1)?
The.truth is Satan has influ-
enced more people than any-
body else. The Apostle Paul
speaks for us when he said, "We
ourselves also were sometimes
foolish, disobedient, deceived"
(Titus 3:3).

Drought leads to local area water restrictions


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
All water users, residential,
commercial and agricultural, are
going to have to pull together to
conserve water. Record low
rainfall resulting in record low
lake levels has prompted South
Florida Water management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) officials to issue
water restrictions.
The area around Lake Okee-
chobee is in a Phase II (severe)
water shortage while the lower
east' coast of Florida is suffering
from a Phase I (moderate) water
shortage. Therefore, restrictions
are more sever for the area
around Lake Okeechobee than
for the east coast.
Phase III restrictions are
issued when the situation is con-
sidered extreme and Phase IV
restrictions are considered to be
critical.
The area affected by Phase II
continues south around both
sides of the lake and includes
the Everglades Agricultural Area.
While water restrictions do
not yet include residential wells,
Gary Ritter of SFWMD's Okee-
chobee Service Center urges
well users to voluntarily con-
serve water.
Agriculture interests around
the lake are required to reduce
their use of water by 30 percent
of their permitted capacity. They
are not allowed- to draw water
irrigation water from canals on
Saturday and Sunday.
Water management officials
have been working with agricul-
tural interest to come up with
the best ways to conserve water
under their individual permits.
The odd - even lawn watering
restrictions apply to municipali-
ties around the lake who draw
their drinking water from the lake.
Mr. Ritter predicts that the
lake level will drop even lower
with no relief in the immediate
future. In mid May or June the
rainfall should pick up.
However he said where the
rain would do the most good in
raising the lake level would be
rain falling on the upper Kissim-
mee Chain of Lakes.
When the lake level gets
down to about 10.5 feet, gravity
can no longer be relied upon to
provide irrigation water from the
lake. At that time SFWMD, will

put in place in many parts of the South Florida Water Management District.


provide forward pumps. Mr. Rit-
ter said these pumps would
serve two functions. They would
provide water for irrigation.
They would also keep salt water
from intruding into coastal
wells, as happened during the
drought of 2000.


Filling of swimming pools is
still allowed. If a pool is emptied,
it must drain unto a non-paved
surface. There are also restric-
tions on landscape irrigation sys-
tems, fertilizer application and
nurseries.
For specific questions on


water restrictions, residents are
asked to call the water conserva-
tion hotline at 800-662-8876.

April to be celebrated as Water Conservation Month


TALLAHASSEE - Gov. Charlie
Crist and the Florida Cabinet on
Friday, March 23, recognized April
as Water Conservation Month.
The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP),
together with the Florida Section
of American Wafer Works Associ-
ation, endorsed the proclamation,
reaffirming the state's commit-
ment to protecting and preserving
Florida's water supply and quality.
"Recognizing April as Water
Conservation Month helps pro-
mote the importance of water
conservation, encouraging Florid-
ians to become environmental
stewards at home and in their
community," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "By pursuing
state and local partnerships,
adopting growth management


practices and implementing con-
servation strategies, we can pro-
tect our water quality, as well as
ensure a reliable supply of water
for the state's natural resources
and water needs for our growing
economy."
With more than 7,700 lakes,
4,500 square miles of estuaries
and bays, more than 50,000 miles
of rivers and streams and count-
less wetlands throughout the
state, protecting water quality is
vital to maintaining our quality of
life. In 2005, DEP's Clean Water
State Revolving Fund was recog-
nized by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency for the State's
efforts to promote water conser-
vation and reuse. Since its incep-
tion in 1988, Florida's State
Revolving Fund program has


awarded more than $2.7 billion in
loans for water quality protection
projects, including funding 106
water reuse projects totaling
more than $384 million.
Along with public water quali-
ty, restoration and conservation
programs, Floridians can adopt
simple habits to help protect and
conserve water:
* Fix water leaks. Homeown-
ers lose an average of 25 gallons
of water a day through leaky
water devices.
* Take shorter showers and
install a low-flow showerhead.
For an investment of $10 or less
you can save $50 to $75 per year
on water bills and $20 to $50 or
more per year on energy bills.
* Run your washing machine
and dishwasher only when they


are full and you could save 1,000
gallons a month. If you wash dish-
es by hand don't leave the water
running for rinsing and you can
save 200 to 500 gallons a month.
* Repair dripping faucets. If
your faucet is dripping at a rate of
one drop per second, you can
waste 2,700 gallons per year.
* Do not leave sprinklers or
hoses unattended. A garden hose
can pour out 600 gallons or more
in only a few hours.
* Reuse household water for
irrigation.
* Replace conventional toilets
that use up to five gallons of water
per flush with water-efficient,
low-flow toilets.

Florida's water, visit www.dep.state.

Area Phase II water restrictions continue in effect


WEST'PALM BEACH - With
below-average rainfall and drought
conditions continuing throughout
the region, mandatory water use
restrictions go into effect through-
out South Florida starting today.
The restrictions are the result of
three water shortage orders passed
last week by the South Florida
Water Management District Gov-
erning Board and signed by Execu-
tive Director Carol Ann Wehle.
"Because rainfall is the region's
primary source for freshwater sup-
ply, substantial cutbacks in water
use through the water restrictions
and voluntary conservation prac-
tices will help stretch dwindling
water supplies," Ms. Wehle said.
"We've asked the media to help
communicate this important mes-
sage to our residents so we can all
weather the water shortage with as
little impact as possible."
Lake Okeechobee
Service Area -
Phase II Restrictions
Phase II mandatory water use
restrictions in areas surrounding
Lake Okeechobee predominantly
impact agricultural, industrial, and
commercial water users in the
Everglades Agricultural Area, and
parts of Hendry, Glades, Okee-
chobee, Palm Beach, Lee and Mar-


tin counties. Also affected are a rel-
atively small number of residential
users whose water source is Lake
Okeechobee or any of the surface
water canals recharged by the lake,
as well as utility customers in South
Bay, Belle Glade, Pahokee and
Clewiston.
Agricultural water users in these
areas are required to reduce their
consumption of surface water by
30 percent. These users have been
notified personally of the specific
nature of restrictions pertaining to
this order and are encouraged to
voluntarily exercise additional
water conservation measures as
practicable.
Residential users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area who irri-
gate from surface water canals will
be required to limit outdoor irriga-
tion times to two days per week.
Residents with odd home address-
es will be allowed to water
between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Wednesday and Saturdays, While
residents with even home address-
es will be allowed to water
between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Thursday and Sundays. Car and
boat washing are allowed only dur-
ing the designated watering days
and times.
The Phase II restrictions in the
Lake Okeechobee Service Area
apply to users who get their water


from Lake Okeechobee, public util-
ities, canals, ponds and lakes.
Groundwater sources (wells) are
not restricted in the Lake Okee-
chobee Service Area because Lake
Okeechobee and is not threatened
by the water shortage in this area.
The use of water for firefighting,
safety, sanitation, health, medical
and other essential purposes is not
restricted.
Turn off sprinklers for a few days
after it rains.
The restrictions prohibit home-
owners from operating their sprin-
kler systems on non-watering days.
Irrigating three days a week or less
is enough to keep everything green
and saves thousands of gallons of
water. In addition, the Phase I and
Phase II restrictions allow low-vol-
ume, spot-watering using a hose
with an automatic shut-off nozzle
from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the land-
scape watering days.
"We're hoping to bring water
conservation practices into every-
one's daily lifestyle, and the restric-
tions do just that," Ms. Wehle said.
"Homeowners can conserve even
more water by not watering for sev-
eral days after a significant rainfall.
If roughly 500,000 home-sprinkler
systems were turned off each time
it rains, we could keep over 1 bil-
lion gallons of water in the aquifer,
reducing the need to recharge our


aquifers from the Everglades and
further reducing the advance of
saltwater intrusion, which threat-
ens our natural resources and
coastal wellfields."
Specific rules also apply to con-
sumptive use permit holders such
as agriculture, nurseries, golf cours-
es and other commercial and
recreational users of water.
Residential and commercial
water use restrictions are mandato-
ry and will be enforced by local
government through its law
enforcement or zoning and code
enforcement agencies. The South
Florida Water Management District
enforces the restrictions for con-
sumptive water use permit holders.
In addition to the mandatory
water use restrictions where appli-
cable, residents in all areas of the
District are encouraged to voluntar-
ily save water both inside and out-
side the home. For additional infor-
mation, residents can call the
District's toll-free Water Conserva-
tion Hotline at (800) 662-8876 or
contact their regional South Florida
Water Management District Service
Center.

mation and other helpful water
conservation tips are available at

Marshall Foundation


seeks planting help


WEST PALM BEACH - The
non-profit Arthur R. Marshall
Foundation is seeking volun-
teers to help plant wetland
trees on Torry Island near Belle
Glade, on Saturday, April 7.
The West Palm Beach-based
Marshall Foundation is dedicat-
ed to restoring the Everglades
through education and com-
munity outreach. Torry Island,
at the southern end of Lake
Okeechobee, was once a
forested wetland and a vital
part of the Florida Everglades.
The 700-acre island was
cleared for farmland decades
ago. It became uninhabitable
in the 1970's after a series of
hurricanes and is today over-
grown with weeds and non-
native plant species. In 2003,
the Marshall Foundation part-
nered with the City of Belle
Glade to replant wetland trees
on the island and turn the area
into an ecotourism destination.
The effort has resulted in about
33,000 native pond apple and
cypress trees being planted so
far.
On April 7, Marshall Founda-
tion volunteers will continue
the planting effort on the
island. Volunteers of all ages
are expected to be on hand.
"Each month, we hold a vol-
unteer tree-planting on Torry
Island in order to get the com-
munity involved in the restora-
tion effort," said Robby
Astrove, Environmental Educa-
tion Specialist for the Marshall


"Each month, we hold
a volunteer tree-plant-
ing on Torry Island in
order to get the com-
munity involved in the

With enough help from
community groups,
families and individu-
als, I know we can get

and improve the Ever-
glades ecosystem."

Volunteers are asked to
wear closed-toed shoes, hats,
sunscreen and sun glasses.
Snacks, bottled water, garden-
ing gloves and tools will be pro-
vided. Please RSVP by Wednes-
day, April 4, to (561) 805-8733

Cane harvest season


reveals road to recovery


WEST PALM BEACH -
Florida Crystals' 2006-2007
sugar cane harvest season
came to an end with promising
signs the industry is on the road
to recovery after two years of'
devastating storms.
Florida Crystals' sugar mills
ground a volume of 5,780,949
gross tons of sugar cane, yield-
ing 654,812 tons of sugar. Sugar
production increased from last
season's 485,482 tons.
"After two challenging years,
Florida Crystals bounced back
with an impressive crop sea-
son," saia Alfy Fanjul, Chair-
man and CEO of Florida Crys-
tals. "We maintained that we
would recover from the storms
and through the hard work and
effort of our team, we are now
seeing positive results."
Okeelanta Corporation,
located in South Bay, finished
its season with a record volume
of sugar cane ground in the
least amount of days, which
amounted to the most grinding
per day in the history of the
Okeelanta Sugar Mill.
Osceola Farms Co., located


"We are pleased to see
our sugar mills and
our lands producing
yields close to what
they were before the
hurricanes. We look
forward to another
great crop next year."
- J. Pepe Ranjul,
Vice Chairman,
COO and President
of Florida Crystal

in Pahokee, ended its 46th sea-
son with the third best total vol-
ume of sugar cane ground.
"We are pleased to see our
sugar mills and our lands pro-
ducing yields close to what they
were before the hurricanes,"
said J. Pepe Fanjul, Vice Chair-
man, COO and President of
Florida Crystals. "We look for-
ward to another great crop next


TALLAHASSEE - April 8-14
is Wildfire Awareness Week in
Florida. In order to promote
Wildfire Awareness Week this
year, we are once again holding
a contest in which television
(radio station & newspapers
who have a webpage) viewers
will be able to answer trivia
questions about fire weather
and fire danger and win "Fire
Danger Weather Kits". Weather
is often overlooked when we
speak about wildfires and fire
danger. Although lightning
starts a large number of wild-
fires in Florida, the main cause
remains human-based. While it
is difficult to change the num-
ber of arson-initiated wildfires,
fires that begin due to careless-
ness may be reduced through
education. Debris burning,
where allowed, is often done
on days where the weather
conditions are likely to cause
fires to escape if not properly
conducted or attended. Windy
conditions, low humidity, and
dry fuels can all contribute to
the escape and spread of a sim-
ple backyard fire into a large
wildfire.
The "Fire Danger Weather
Kits" contain materials that can
help teach Florida residents
about the wildfire threat that
exists in the state all year round
and conditions that are likely to
contribute to initiation of wild-


fires. The thermometer and
rain gauge can be used to mon-
itor local conditions and raise
awareness of the lack of rainfall
and warm temperatures that
may'indicate unfavorable burn-
ing conditions. Rainfall in Flori-
da is typically sporadic in
nature and locations several
miles apart may report signifi-
cantly different rainfall
amounts from the same storm
system. This kit can help peo-
ple increase their weather
awareness as well as their local
threat from wildfires.
The response for the first
contest last spring for Wildfire
Awareness Week was very pos-
itive. The contest was promot-
ed at the wildfire briefing with
the governor last March and we
will continue to promote it this
year. Severe burning conditions
are already impacting the state
and wildfire occurrence contin-
ues to increase. The outlook for
a La Nifia this spring also
increases the likelihood of
Florida experiencing another
active fire season.
This is a ground-breaking
fire prevention campaign and
we look forward to even larger
numbers in participation for
this year. For any questions
regarding the program, please
feel free to call at (850) 413-
7172 or email at
hanleyd@doacs.state.fl.us.

The day the trains came to the city of Clewiston


By MaryAnn Morris
Editor's note: this was taken
from a copy of the original
newspaper, Miami Herald, pro-
vided by the Clewiston Histori-
cal Museum. Some detail has
been lost over the years. Such
detail is noted.
On Labor Day, September 7,
1921 a grand celebration bar-
beque was held in Clewiston. It
attracted politicians, dignitaries
and crowds of local people for at
last, it would be possible to ship
produce and other goods direct-
ly into Clewiston.
"Railroad celebration at
Clewiston emphasizes need of
transportation to develop Ever-
glades." This was the headline
on page six of the Miami Herald
on Sunday, September 11, 1921.
The year new-born Okeechobee
City turned four years old and
booming Moore Haven was a
ripe old seven.
The Florida East Coast Rail-
road had come to Okeechobee
in 1914, but few roads existed in
the 'Glades. Steamboats running
up the New River Canal from
Fort Lauderdale or across the
Caloosahatchee from Fort Myers
were still a main source of com-
merce and transportation. The
opening of this waterway across
Florida in April of 1912, was the
cause for much celebration as
well.
The fertile Everglades were
the farmer's new paradise.
"Local and state interest in
the Lake Okeechobee and upper
Everglades section has been sig-
nificantly accentuated in the
past week by the splendid cele-
bration at Clewiston of Labor
Day of the completion of the
Moore Haven and Clewiston
Railway, a strip of 14 miles of
railroad recently built from

Moore haven to Clewiston, a
point formerly known as Sand
Point, on the south shore of Lake
Okeechobee and affording
exceptional advantages for
dockage and a lake terminal.
This new railroad was built by
Captain J.J. O'Brien and Mrs.
O'Brien of Moore Haven and Mr.
A.C. Clewis, president of the
Exchange National Bank of
Tampa. Through this small strip
of railroad, it itself of compara-
tively little consequence at the
present time, its ultimate exten-
sion east to some point of the
Atlantic coast is of the greatest
importance to both the Ever-
glade section and the state as an
internal development feature.
Apparently the most feasible
and logical route of extension
would be down the canal to
Miami. However, the route and
coast terminal are matters yet
undetermined and the construc-
tion yet unprovided for.
"But despite the short length
of the Moore Haven and Clewis-
ton extension and the present
limited scope of service, the cel-
ebration of its completion on
Labor Day has served a great
purpose in that it has riveted
public attention to the para-
mount need in the future devel-
opment of the Everglades and
Lake region - transportation -


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


And so it was, and so it has
been. An account of the boat trip
made by those dignitaries
attending the Labor Day celebra-
tion in Clewiston in September
of 1921 is also included in this
article. A transcription of that
from the copy of the original
newspaper will follow.

tember 11, 1921.

a railroad outlet to the Atlantic
seaboard and a comprehensive
system of highways through the
drained sections of the 'glades.
The present limitations afforded
by the shallow drainage canals
are almost negligible when com-
pared to the actual needs for
farm development. And until a
railroad outlet from Lake Okee-
chobee to some point on the
east coast is made available, the
incalculable agricultural wealth
of this vast area within less than
100 miles of Miami must remain
practically dormant and non-
productive, except for the limit-
ed operation of the Pioneers
who have gone in and cleared
and put under cultivation small
tracts while waiting for the com-
ing of the railroad and the high-
way to furnish an outlet for their
crops and live stock. Therefore,
if the completion of the short
strip of road from Moore Haven
to Clewiston shall have suffi-
ciently impressed the public
mind of the state with the imper-
ative transportation needs of the
Everglade section that construc-
tion of adequate transportation
lines will be begun at an early
date the Moore Haven and
Clewiston railroad will have ren-
dered a great service to the state
and constitute a monument to
the sagacity and genius of the
builders."
