release your kittens to them to
be placed for adoption.
The kittens will be fea-
tured on the shelter's web-
site for adoption as being

being released to the shelter
for adoption and being
altered, they will be reducing
the astronomical number of

New impact fees proposed


County board studies
implementation of
new charges

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY -
Hendry County officials may
implementing new fees to take
advantage of new development
countywide.
The hope is that entities


coming into the county will pay
impact fees that will take the
need for funding capital facility'
improvements into account.
The emergence of such new
developments must be
accounted for by a proportion-
ate growth in municipal servic-
es and facilities to meet the
needs of the new areas.
Following in line with
growth projections, the board
of county commissioners hired
Dr. James Nicholas to prepare a


budget analysis focused on
additional impact fees. The fees
will include charges for parks
and recreation, law enforce-
ment, public libraries, fire/res-
cue protection and public build-
ings.
Dr. Nicholas is a planning
and development director spe-
cializing in such reviews.
To put the impact fees in per-
spective, the county's consult-
ant studied impact fees
imposed in 39 other counties in


Florida, and provided an aver-
age. As an example, the average
impact fee for parks was calcu-
lated to be $904, while Hendry
County's proposed fees stand at
$590. Other fees follow in line:
the library impact fee average is
$214, the proposed county fee
is $44; law/jail impact fee aver-
ages $334, Hendry County pro-
poses $254.
The public building fee
around the state averages $447,
while Hendry County would

Cuttin' Up opens


for business


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON- When it
comes to getting a good hair-
cut, Clewiston has one more
barbershop to choose from.
Cuttin' Up is opening a new
shop at 108 Bond Street
Although the two owners are
quite young, the duo say they
believe in giving good old-fash-
ioned haircuts at a good price.
According to Jason
Williams, the barbershop has a
lot more to offer than just hair-
cuts. Mr. Williams hopes that
his customers will find a nice
place where they can actually
sit and relax before they get a
trim.
"It's going to be something
different, more family orient-
ed," said Mr. Williams. "A lot of
people have been asking for

There is a second location
already in operation in Clewis-

Summer


arrives in


Clewiston

City offers recreation
programs to children

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News .
CLEWISTON - With the end
of the school year comes the
start of the summer.
The birds - and the bugs - are
out in full force, what's green
gets greener and gas prices start
to creep back up to more than
$3 per gallon.
Some families take advantage
of the lull in their work sched-
ules and their children's off-time
to plan vacations. Others choose
to stay at home, but that doesn't
mean that kids should spend
their days lounging around the
house.
There are many ways to keep
them occupied during those
summer months right here in
Clewiston.
Every year the Clewiston
Recreation Department provides
positive outlets for area children
through its summer camp pro-
gram.. The programs offered
strive to keep the kids enter-
tained, involved and productive
throughout the summer, keep-
ing working parents and families
happy that their kids are in safe
hands.
Summer camp registration
begins June 8, at the Clewiston
Youth Center.
Kids enjoy a variety of activi-
ties, including swimming, arts
and crafts and other programs
offered by the department.
Summer day camps are divid-
ed by age groups, each with its
own activities and programs.
Both offer all-day activities and
free daily lunches.
Camp Crayon targets children
ages 5 through 7 and programs
are offered at Sikes Playground.
Camp Funarama is for children
ages 8 through 11. Both camps

be is a graduate of Lake Placid

ington College in Alabama on a

Church of Moore Haven.


By MaryAnn Morris
The slow-moving, squishey
lovebug, often attached to a mate,
is familiar to most people in the
southern United States as what is
splattered all over their cars in the
spring and early fall.
An transplanted species from
Central America, today the love-
bug - which is harmless to
humans - is found throughout
Florida. Like cute little migratory
birds, lovebugs signal changes in
the seasons from spring to sum-
mer and again from summer to
fall. Moreover, if they were larger,
people could easily see and
admire their delicate features,
particularly the big round eyes of
the males. Wilhelm Rudolph
Wiedemann named the genus
Plecia for the lovebug and its rela-
tives in 1828, so his concept for
the term may never be known.
Generally, most people react
with an "Eeewww!" or a "Yuck!"
when they come into contact
with the black clouds of lovebugs.
Lovebugs like decaying leaves,
manure and such. They will lay
their eggs there. When the eggs
hatch, "Voila!" more lovebugs,
since they don't fly very well, they
don't fly very far from where they
hatch.
Lovebugs do not bite, sting or
transmit diseases and are not poi-
sonous. They are only active in
the daylight and are much less
mobile during the early and late
daytime hours. Typically, the pairs
fly across the wind and are blown
against obstacles, especially your
car or truck as you tool down the
highway at high speeds.


A fan can be used outside near
work or recreational areas to
keep lovebugs away.
Lovebugs cannot be con-
trolled effectively with poisons or
repellents. There are simply too
many of them.
Origins
Contrary to urban myth, this
insect was not introduced to the
state by the University of Florida.
Over the course of the20th centu-
ry, lovebugs migrated from Cen-
tral America, where their habitat
was being reduced by logging.
Over a course of many years and
many generations of lovebugs,
they traveled through Texas and
Louisiana and into Florida.
Attractants
Lovebugs are attracted to
diesel and gasoline exhaust
fumes. Hot engines and the vibra-
tions of automobiles seem to
attract them to highways.
Active times
Love bugs are usually active
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., in
temperatures above 84 degrees
Farenheit.
Mating season
Each generation of lovebugs
lasts about four weeks in May and
September. Typically there are
two main generations during this
time. But the insects may be seen
throughout the summer.
Problems
Large numbers of lovebugs
can cause overheating of liquid-
cooled engines, cloud or com-


pletely block the windshield and
etch automobile paint if they are
left to bake on to the surface.
Solutions
Within about twenty minutes
after a lovebug-filled drive, wash
your car with water for about five
minutes and then scrub it to
.remove most of the lovebugs
without harm to automobile
paint. A hood air deflector or
screen will reduce the number of


spattered lovebugs on your car.
Pesticides
Chemical controls are ineffec-
tive. There are too many love-
bugs.

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. My
dog Sadie has the most awful
nails to cut. Her nail beds are so
long, there is very little to trim.
She has claws that are nearly
three (3) inches long! Is there a
way to re-train or shorten the
nail beds so she can have short-
er more manageable nails?
Thanks Doc, Jenny in Clewis-
ton.
Answer: Hey Jenny! Yours is


not an uncom-
mon question.
How about
considering a
"Show Nail
Trim"?
Show nail
trims are
when you gen-
tly sedate you Doc
dog and use a
Dremel tool to aawy


cut the nails short below the nail
bed line. This will teach the nail
bed to start over at a shorter
level. It can stay that way as long
as you do routine nail clipping
on a monthly basis.
When you use the Dremel
properly, it very perfectly short-
ens the nails and stops any
bleeding in the process. Antibi-
otics are sometimes used to pre-
vent infection. Also this is a great

Drought equals worst on record, experts worried


Lake Okeechobee
reaches lowest
recorded water level

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers
LAKE OKEECHOBEE - Water
managers continued to express
concern as Lake Okeechobee's
water levels sank to levels equal to
4he worst drought the body of
"water has ever seen.
The uncertain part is that there
doesn'tt seem to be much relief in
sight and water management offi-
cials say Phase IV restrictions may
be around the corner.
Even as residents around the
lake and much farther, including
the coastal communities of Palm
Beach County, are forced to cut
;back their water use by severe
,measures, the signs of any relief
.'approaching quickly seem distant.
-1 Unless an extraordinary weath-
er phenomenon occurs, and if the
drought conditions persist, the lake
level is expected to continue gradu-
ally decreasing, perhaps far out-
pacing the 2001 record level.
"This is obviously putting us in
one of the most severe situations
we've been in, perhaps it will be


INi/Lorna JaoDonSKI
Due to the drought, the area
Inside the dike has dried out
to the point that In some
cases the lake bottom has
caught fire. The sky along
S.R. 78 W. was filled with
smoke Monday morning as a
wildfire of unknown origin
continued to burn along the
Rim Canal and the lake near
the Buckhead Ridge Marina.
Firefighters stated that the fire
broke out around midnight
Sunday, May 27, and burned
throughout the night in an
area that was inaccessible.
the most severe as we expect to
see the lake drop to below the
record today," said Randy Smith,
spokesman for the South Florida
Water Management District.
Earlier this year the water man-
agement district, the body that gov-


erns the area's water use especially
as it concerns Lake Okeechobee,
enforced tougher water restrictions
with the hope that an approaching
rainy season could provide some
relief to the waning lake levels.
Cities as high up along the
state as Ft. Pierce, down to the
Florida Keys, and cities from both
the eastern and western coasts
are under water shortage rules as
the state looks to recover from
what experts hope will only be a
temporary crisis.
Around the lake, fishermen and
others note the continually sinking
lake, many of the fishermen have
taken to fishing in outreaching
canals where the waters are higher,
and some boaters expected to wait
out the drought before risking tak-
ing their boats out on the lake and
running ashore on some of the
higher points throughout the lake.
Areas as far away as Eastern
Palm Beach and Broward coun-
ties faced drastic modified Phase
III water use restrictions. In sim-
ple terms, residents were restrict-
ed to watering their lawns and
washing their cars only one day
out of the week.
The rules have only slowed
down the sinking water levels.
In the meantime, water man-
agement officials have enforced


the rules by documenting more
than 200 water restriction viola-
tions by homeowners associa-
tions, golf courses and others.
"In the short term we need to
continue with the conservation
efforts, make sure we have full
compliance," said Mr. Smith.
"Longer term is to continue build-
ing large storage areas and devel-
oping alternative water supply,
recycling water."
Meanwhile, brush fires are
sprouting at the bed of the lake,
including a brush fire that erupted
in Brighton on the northern end of
the lake.
Even with an above-average
rainfall season, experts say it is
uncertain if the area will not con-
tinue to be under water restric-
tions. In any event, the water
management district isn't
expecting to see an end to the
problem soon.
"It took a solid 18 months in
the making - a wet season last
year that did not materialize - it
was a long process," said Mr.
Smith. "It will be an equally long,
arduous process to re-bounce."
Part of that "re-bounce,"
according to Mr. Smith is develop-
ing modified Phase IV restrictions
that can be implemented if the sit-
uation grows worse - an unan-

The Sun
PALM BEACH COUNTY - A
-45-year-old man was killed in a
:motorcycle accident on a dirt
p:oad near Belle Glade Monday.


According to a press release
provided by the Florida Highway
Patrol, the driver, Kumbukkage
Tissa Wimsalasekera, of Boca
Raton, was traveling south-
bound on a private property,
about a mile and a half north of
State Road 700, at about 1:45
p.m. when the accident
occurred.
The motorcyclist is believed
to have been traveling at about


45 miles per hour.
A witness attempted to warn
the driver of the cable suspend-
ed across the dirt road, but was
unsuccessful.
The motorcyclist apparently
did not observe the cable until
the last moment, when he
attempted to lay the bike on its
side to avoid hitting the line,
according to the press release.
But it was too late.


The man on the motorcycle
hit the cable with his bike and
was violently ejected from the
motorcycle.
When emergency workers
arrived, the victim was pro-
nounced dead at the scene,
according to investigators.
According to officials, the vic-
tim was wearing a helmet when
he crashed against the line.

ticipated expectation. According
to Mr. Smith, Phase IV restriction
rules were written more than 25
years ago and are not applicable
to today's conditions.
"The district staff is reworking
that to try to come up with the


most humane way of restricting
even further," said Mr. Smith,
"but to also have significant
impact on resources."

SEBRING - The Florida
-Department of Transportation
land the Florida Heartland Rural
:Economic Development Initiative
recently kicked off the Heartland
:Rural Mobility Plan. The goal of
;the Heartland Rural Mobility Plan
:is to develop and implement an
.overall mobility improvement
,process for the six counties and
*four communities of the Florida
SHeartland. This includes DeSoto,
:Glades, Hardee, Hendry, High-
-lands, and Okeechobee counties
:and the communities of Belle
:Glades, Pahokee, and South Bay
-in Palm Beach County and
Immokalee in Collier County.


This unique joint transporta-
tion planning effort represents a
partnership between the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) District One and the Flori-
da Heartland Rural Economic
Development Initiative, Inc.
(FHREDI). This comprehensive
planning effort will:
* Outline a strategic approach
to address the region's mobility
needs
*Provide a sound business
foundation for public transporta-
tion services
* Address the mobility needs
of the Heartland
* Recommend a governing


structure, as well as financial and
operational plans
* Satisfy the FDOT transporta-
tion planning requirements that
will enable access to potential
funding from federal, state and
local sources
Assisting FDOT and FHREDI in
the Heartland Rural Mobility Plan
will be the Center for Urban
Transportation Research (CUTR)
from the University of South Flori-
da in Tampa and Tindale-Oliver &
Associates, Inc., a transportation
planning consultant firm with
offices in Tampa, Bartow and
Orlando.
The Heartland Rural Mobility


Plan will feature an extensive
public involvement effort with
numerous opportunities for pub-
lic and stakeholder feedback and
input. This eighteen (18) month
effort was officially kicked off at
the FHREDI Board Meeting held
on April 16 in Sebring and will
conclude in the summer of 2008.
For more information about
the Heartland Rural Mobility Plan
and how individuals and groups
can be involved can be obtained

-Forestry says wildfire season 'not typical'


FT. MYERS - This year has
not been typical - for wildfires
that is and year to date there
have been 188 wildfires - 167 of
those have been in the last three
months burning more than
35,104 acres, the most in 26
years.
Typically, wildfires average
about 333 every year with acres
lost averaging 15,000.
Historically, April, May and
June are the busiest months.
June is the month we typically
run the most fires - most light-
ning caused - and we expect this
year will be no different given
the lack of district wide rainfall.
* Lack of rain has been the
'biggest factor - fuels (dry grass,
weeds and trees) have been
-extremely dry. These dry fuels
combined with high winds and
low humidity have created per-
fect conditions for wildfires to
ignite easily, become intense
quickly, and spread rapidly.
* Even when we have
received rain, it has not been
.widespread. Some areas have
-received rainfall measuring in


the inches while other areas
barely received a trace. Both Col-
lier and Lee Counties still have a
significant rainfall deficit accord-
ing to South Florida Water Man-
agement rainfall records.
* Lee and Collier Counties
remain under an emergency
FEMA declaration because of
extreme wildfire conditions. Lee
County still has a county wide
burn ban. The Commissioner of
Agriculture has initiated a
statewide ban on backyard
burning.
* It takes time for our vegeta-
tion to dry out to current levels. It
will take just as long for it to
become re-hydrated less likely to
ignite easily. Consequently we
expect that local conditions will
only improve gradually over a
period of time.
* Typically, this time of year
has irregular rainfall followed by
strong winds and low humidity
which dries the moisture brought
by the rain.
* Lightning associated with
the early storms starts many wild-
fires because there has not been


enough rainfall to extinguish the
fire before it becomes intense.
* Two (2) main causes:
human or natural:
Until May, only three percent
of our fires have been caused by
lightning - the rest are caused by
humans, either accidentally or on
purpose (28 percent are arson).
*Lightning has accounted for
33 percent of the wildfires we
responded to so far this month.
* When a cause is not evident,
Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement will investigate as
they do any other crime to deter-
mine a cause.
Anyone found guilty of setting
a fire intentionally may receive a
fine and time in jail according to
appropriate statutes. Those
responsible for the start of a wild-
fire will be billed for the cost of
suppression (putting it out)
which can quickly become thou-
sands of dollars.
* We need all residents to
continue to be careful any time
they use fire or anything that can
cause a spark or high heat to
start a dry area ablaze. This can


be anything from matches to an
off road vehicle.
Until regular summer rain pat-
terns arrive, everyone needs to
continue to be vigilant for the start
of wildfires and report them as
soon as possible.
* Don't invite wildfire home!
If residents haven't followed
the Firewise guidelines we have
given so often, they need to pre-
pare their homes to survive a
wildfire. They need to clean up
their yards and their roofs and
trim excessive vegetation within
30 feet of their homes. They can
get more detailed information
from either the Florida Division of
Forestry website or at
Firewise.org.We expect to see
many fires between now and the
end of June. We don't need to
have fires started carelessly
adding to that total. It may be old,
but Smokey Bear's message is still
important today:
"Only you can prevent wild-
fires!"
We'll do our part; we need you
to do yours.

Scam targets



military spouses


WASHINGTON, D.C. - The
American Red Cross has learned
about a new scam targeting mili-
tary families. This scam takes the
form of false information to mili-
tary families as described below:
The caller (young-sounding,
American accent) calls a military
spouse and identifies herself as a
representative from the Red Cross.
The caller states that the spouse's
husband (not identified by name)
was hurt while on duty in Iraq and
was med-evacuated to a hospital in
Germany. The caller stated they
couldn't start treatment until paper-
work was accomplished, and that
in order to start the paperwork they
needed the spouse to verify her
husband's social security number
and date of birth. In this case, the
spouse was quick to catch on and
she did not provide any informa-
tion to the caller.
The American Red Cross repre-
sentatives typically do not contact
military members/dependents
directly and almost always go
through a commander or first ser-
geant channels. Military family
members are urged not to give out
any personal information over the
phone if contacted by
unknown/unverified individuals, to
include confirmation that your
spouse is deployed.
It is a federal crime, punishable
by up to 5 years in prison, for a per-
son to falsely or fraudulently pre-
tend to be a member of, or an
agent for, the American National


Red Cross for the purpose of solicit-
ing, collecting, or receiving money
or material.
In addition, American Red Cross
representatives will contact military
members/dependents directly only
in response to an emergency mes-
sage initiated by your family. The
Red Cross does not report any type
of casualty information to family
members. The Department of
Defense will contact families direct-
ly if their military member has been
injured. Should any military family
member receive such a call, they
are urged to report it to their local
Family Readiness Group or Military
Personnel Flight.
The American Red Cross
ensures that the American people
are in touch with their family mem-
bers serving in the United States
military by operating a communi-
cations network that is open 24-
hours, 7 days-a-week, 365 days-a-
year. Through a network of
employees and volunteers at Red
Cross national that link families
during emergencies, access to
emergency financial assistance,
confidential counseling, communi-
ty support headquarters, local
chapters, on military installations,
and deployed with troops, the Red
Cross offers a broad range of servic-
es. Among these services, the Red
Cross 'provides communications
for families left behind, assistance
to veterans, and preparedness
courses for military personnel and
their families.

New city building being planned


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Much like any
other resident in the area still cop-
ing with the effects of Hurricane
Wilma, the city of Clewiston is
now working to address one of
the facilities that was hardest hit
during that storm.
After 2005, the public works
and utilities department buildings
were practically destroyed, with
the strong winds causing thou-


sands of dollars in damage.
Due to the severity of the
damages, city leaders decided
that instead of trying to patch up
what was left of the facilities,
they would instead move for-
ward with constructing all-new
replacement buildings.
Recently, in May, the city com-
mission voted to authorize staff
to begin the process of the
replacement.
The city will contract the
architectural services, as well as


identify and budget the funding
necessary to carry out the con-
struction project.
The board is tentatively esti-
mating it will cost approximately
$1.3 million to build the facilities
that will house both the public
works department, which main-
tains the city's streets, sidewalks
and sewer system, and the utili-
ties department, which provides
the city's water, sewer and elec-
tric services.
According to plans, the build-


ing will be approximately 15,000.
square feet.
The commission had tasked
the directors of both depart-
ments to come up with a plan
for action, and agreed with the
plan to rebuild. Staff is expected
to address the issue at a future
meeting after more progress is
made in the search for the archi-
tectural firm.

Five sites selected for Heartland catalyst project


Palmdale ranks third
in regional vote

Special to the
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY - Glades
County joined the five other coun-
'ties in the Heartland Region, as
'well as the cities of Pahokee, Belle
' Glade, South Bay and Immokalee
,in selecting the top five of 13 sites
submitted from throughout the
region for a regional economic
development "catalyst project."
According to Econonomic
'Development Council (EDC)
!executive director Tracy Whirls,
'her office is working with Florida
Heartland Rural Economic Devel-
opment Initiative (FHREDI), the
;Governor's Office of Tourism,
;Trade and Economic Develop-
�ment and Enterprise Florida, as
well as other communities in the
south central Rural Area of Critical
'Economic Concern, on the proj-
ect; which is expected to bring
new healthcare-related industries
to the region.
During a daylong catalyst site
;selection meeting held at the
Sebring Civic Center, April 27, Ms.
"Whirls, joined by EDC director
" Kevin Thomas, EDC secretary
- Mark Morton and Glades County
Deputy County Manager for Com-
I, munity Development Larry Hilton
worked with other EDC directors
`,and county staff from Hendry,
'Highlands, DeSoto, and Hardee
- Counties as well as the communi-
.'ty of Immokalee to choose the top
five sites which will be visited by
. consultants representing health-
care manufacturing and service
,companies looking to locate in
south central Florida.
The top five sites were:
1) Sebring Regional Airport in
Highlands County: located at U.S.
- 98 and U.S. 27. Property has water
, and wastewater systems in place,
'fiber optic and high-broadband
-isystem. Natural gas service will
4be completed within 12 months.
" Rail service is on site and High-
.lands County offers a comprehen-
-sive incentives package. The
property is also in the path of both
,ithe East/West and North/South
iFDOT Corridor concept screening
:plans.
| 2) Hendry Airglades Industrial
^ Park in Hendry County: located at


U.S. 27 and S.R. 80, with an addi-
tional access available via a divid-
ed highway (Flaghole Road). The
county controls the acreage,
water and wastewater infrastruc-
ture is in close proximity to the
site and there are no wetlands on
the site. Land is leasable.
3) Lykes-Palmdale site, Glades
County: Property is divided along
U.S. 27 with rail access paralleling
U.S. 27. This is the largest of the
submitted sites, at 1,000 acres. It
is 41 miles southeast of Sebring,
five miles north of Moore Haven
and close to IFAS agricultural, bio-
logical and plant pathology
research and MacArthur Agro
ecology Research.
4) Wal-Mart Distribution Area,
DeSoto County: Property is adja-
cent to existing Wal-Mart Distribu-
tion Center, within seven miles of
1-75 and adjacent to U.S. 17. Cur-
rently zoned light industrial.
Water main to site along U.S. 17.
Rail within a mile, less than 50
miles to an international airport
and proximate to Florida Gulf
Coast University at Fort Myers and
South Florida Community College
at Arcadia.
5) Florida Tradeport at
Immokalee, Collier County: The
site is 20 miles from 1-75 (Ever-
glades Parkway East/West and
within the FDOT Future Corridor
Plan (north/south). Property is
leasable.
Ms. Whirls said the consulting
company hired by FHREDI and
Enterprise Florida to steer the cat-
alyst project rated the 13 pro-
posed sites based on their prox-
imity to Interstate highway
systems or multilane state high-
ways, proximity to rail, proximity
to major population centers for
reasonable commuting times,
expandable in size in stages as
growth and development occur.
"It was interesting in that the
consultants had short listed four
sites and the Glades Palmdale site
was not on the original short list,"
Ms. Whirls said. "We were given
the option of adding a fifth site
and as the Palmdale site was the
next highest ranked in the short
listing and has the most potential
to impact a regional area, given its
proximity to Hendry and High-
lands Counties as well as Glades
County, we succeeded having it
added to the list," Ms. Whirls said.
"We were surprised and delight-


ed when it came in third during
the prioritization of the sites."
Now that the top five sites have
been identified, the consultants
will begin contacting companies
in the healthcare industry, which
may include companies ranging
from manufacturers of pharma-
ceuticals, nuitraceuticals or pros-
thetics, to research and develop-
ment corporations like Scripps.
They'll provide all of the informa-
tion that has been gathered
regarding the proposed sites,
including workforce demograph-
ics, average area wage scales and
particulars on the properties
themselves.
As interested companies are
identified, the consultants will
work with the regional EDCs to
schedule site visits and meetings,
beginning with the top sites -
those considered "shovel ready"
and then working their way down
the list.
In addition to the benefit of
having the Glades Palmdale site
marketed as part of the catalyst
package, Ms. Whirls said that par-
ticipating in the process has given
each EDC a wealth of information
which they would not have been
privy to otherwise. That informa-
tion has been provided to each
EDC on disc, and plans call for the
information to be added to EDC
and FHREDI websites.
"Studies have shown that
employees will travel from a 75-
mile radius to work for compa-
nies offering high wage/high
skilled jobs," the EDC director
said. "Now we not only have
detailed information on the
Glades Palmdale site, but also we
have demographic information
on potential employees from
throughout the region. We can
compare incentives offered by
neighboring counties with what
we have to offer, compare real
estate prices and other data
which we can use strategically to
level the pla ing field."
Glades County property owner
and EDC partner, Lykes Brothers
also benefits from the "pre-clear-
ance" review of the submitted
properties prepared by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, Florida Department of
Transportation and other state
agencies as part of the site selec-
tion process.

ance review is obvious," Ms.
Whirls said. " even if a particular
site is not selected for the 'cata-
lyst' project, that site is well ahead
of the game when it comes to
development for other commer-
cial or industrial uses, having
cleared many of the permitting
hurdles associated with the
process."
The EDC and Lykes now have
much of the information needed,
not only for the Glades Palmdale
site, but the property adjacent to
the proposed FPL Power Park off
S.R. 78 in Moore Haven. This
information will be helpful to
market those properties to other
prospective new businesses and
industries.
The EDC director would
encourage other landowners to
use the site description process
outlined by the catalyst project
consultants to provide informa-
tion to the economic develop-
ment council to assist in market-
ing those properties.
"While some of the other
counties have other advantages
- more existing medical facili-
ties, satellite community college
and university classes, more exist-
ing housing and commercial
establishments - we have more
land with more rail in Glades
County," Ms. Whirls said. "We
also have and intend to preserve
more green space and natural
areas, all of which speak to the
kind of 'quality of life' attributes
companies are looking for when
relocating or expanding. We think
Glades County is the land of
opportunity for new businesses
and the catalyst project is going to
help us convey that to new
prospects."
Ms. Whirls is quick to point out
that whichever county ultimately
"wins" the catalyst project, it will
create opportunities throughout
the Heartland region.
"The Scripps project in Palm
SBeach County was a-~'catalyst' for
Ihe Torey Pines project in St. Lucie
County. Just as the FPL project in
Glades will create job opportuni-
ties in Hendry and Highlands
County, if a large research and
development park were created
in Highlands County as part of the
catalyst project, for example, a
great many future Glades County
college graduates could expect to
get jobs there," Ms. Whirls said.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news - the kind .u and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. ThIi
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Wood paths lead to special things


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Independent Newspapers
As the sun moves slowly north-
Wvard reflections and shadows take
on new dimensions. And little
."windows" through low-hanging
limbs are alight with new scenes -
especially those with silvered Span-
ish moss waving back and forth
across them.
There are a few paths that we
have carved through the vines and
saplings that we walk and explore
often, but ours pale in comparison
to those little trails and avenues of
those who naturally call the woods
home. We have to cut and chop
'our way while they make their way
bending and brushing against
whatever is in their way. Those of
the deer are marked here and there
with small trees which they have
rubbed free of bark as they stroke
their horns back and forth. One
morning not long ago, one of our
Christmas trees, a tall, shapely Vir-
ginia cedar along the pasture road
was bare of bark completely
,around the small trunk for at least
ten inches. The reddish strips of
bark hung like ribbons blowing in
the wind. There was no way it
could survive - and it didn't. And,
close by, there was another cedar,
considerably larger, that was
rubbed bare on one side. We split a
two-foot piece of six-inch accor-
dion plastic pipe, fitted it around
the wounded trunk, then taped it
back together. So far, so good,
there's been no more damage that
we can see to that tree. It's a differ-
ent story with a tall eucalyptus on

the west barn road, which was
planted as a sapling about ten years
ago and now stands twenty feet tall
or more. It seems doomed, just like
the little cedar, for there is so much
bark missing there's no way we
can un-do or repair the damage.
However some eucalyptus trees
are amazingly determined to over-
come all obstacles and live in spite
of afflictions. It's been said that
these Australian natives have sever-
al layers of bark which gives them
more of a fighting chance against
animals and fire.
A deer path can be easily fol-
lowed even though when it's in
the woods on a forest carpet, there
are no visible signs of hoof prints.
Nevertheless the signs are there,
especially when their napping
places are found. Amongst woods-
men it's said that deer never sleep,
they just nap and that with one eye
at least partially open. These nap-
ping areas are amazingly round
and often the needles and leaves
seem to have been meticulously
arranged for comfort. And always
there is an escape route, that is, the
path that leads in is just that. It's an
entrance but on one side or end or
somewhere there will be another,
albeit a smaller path, that will
allow the animal to escape if nec-
essary. When the fawns are yet
with their mother, the napping
place is often egg-shaped.
When following some of the
pathways of the woodland crea-
tures, it seems a wonder that they
can get from one point to another
so quickly because often the little
avenues bend and turn so often
and sharply that it seems as


though they could get dizzy in a
hurry. Rabbits and squirrels and
raccoons race like the wind, and
often it looks as though the little
brown soldiers, the quail, prefer
running to flying.
When following these little
trails, it's not unusual to see an
indentation on the forest floor
that's no bigger than a quart bas-
ket. The creature that makes his
bed here does so as artistically as a
wren - thin, thread-like "hairs"
from the fronds of Sabal palms are
usually on the outside, while the
inside is lined with the soft down-
like fiber that grows behind the
bootjacks and lichens from any
trees that offer it. And almost
always, there's considerable Span-
ish moss tucked in and around the
homey little "bedroom." Just
maybe one day I'll be there when
"he" or "she" comes wandering in!
Islands of saw palmettos are
wondrous shelters for wild crea-
tures. Beneath the low, many-
trunked palms, heavily laden with
fronds, wind and rain rarely find
their way in. Thus, the winding tun-
nels with little "rooms" here and
there, mostly stay dry and warm.
And the natural mulching of the
dried, sloughed fronds around the
outer rim of these islands, act
somewhat as an alarm system for
those inside. When a predator
steps on dried fronds, the ensuing
crackling noise alerts the inside
inhabitants to possible danger.
Some palmetto tunnels are not
more than eight to ten inches in
diameter, while others can be three
times that size. In a big island, it's
impossible to see the end of any of

them as they go branching off in
various directions all along. After
trying to crawl on all fours into one
of the larger tunnels to take a look
around, it soon became absolutely
clear that it could not be done with-
out destroying the intricate mak-
ings of those little roads that highly
resemble long, winding covered
bridges. So there was one thing to
do: back out. There wasn't space
enough to turn around! It's always
a help to be able to see where one
is going, especially backwards! The
"roofs" of these islands, being on
many levels and made up of hun-
dreds of fronds, doesn't let a lot of
light through, which naturally
makes the crawling-in or crawling-
out even more difficult. Even at
high noon, the light that does make
its way inside these wild sanctuar-
ies is like a soft, still twilight.
On one early morning explo-
ration when first light was just
spilling over the pond, the path was
followed into the hammock.. .cen-
turies-old oaks and cabbage palms
and one enormous wild orange
tree. With such a heavy limb cover
it was still dark. Not a sound of
morning could be heard, not even
the first songbird or cooing of a love
dove. But suddenly, there was a
faint brief snuffing sound near my
feet. As my eyes became more
accustomed to the darkness and
pale streaks of light began filtering
through the upper story of leaves, a
shell-like image could barely be
seen. Standing statue-still, watch-
ing intently, there was a subtle
awareness of other little scurrying
movements nearby. By this time
there was a bit more light - enough
to begin to see what was going on.
There on the floor of the ancient
hammock, a mother armadillo
was frantically directing her six off-
spring back into a hollow, moss-
covered palm log, her snout rapidly
and cleverly maneuvering her egg-
size babies back into their log
home. In seconds, they were totally
out of sight and there was not a
sound, nor a movement from that
little, family of wild creatures.
Silence reined supreme in the ham-
mock until the birds began singing
their morning songs.
Carefully retracing my steps to
the edge of the aisle leading into
that hammock, which we had
come to think of as "the cathe-
dral," the ringing of the old ship's
bell on the porch and the inviting
fragrance of fresh-perked coffee
met me head on. The morning's
adventure was over. It was time to
go home - again.

The new pavilion at the Ortona Cemetery provided shade for the Memorial Day Ceremo-
ny. It was a day for military veterans to reflect on their service to their country, and for
Americans to honor those who died serving their country.

There is no 'magic' diet or food


Week after week, month after
month, the magazines proclaim
in bold print that they can help
you lose up to (fill in the blank)
pounds per week - just buy the
magazine and follow their
"breakthrough" plan. You see
this stuff when you check out;
we all scoff at it, but someone is
keeping those magazines in
print! People BUY them. They
buy them thinking "maybe this
will be The One". And do you
know what? You might see a
good hint or idea, or a new idea
or two, but that's it. Know why?
Because there is no magic food!
It's like anything you want to
do, whether it's get your house
in order or lose a little body clut-
ter, there is no magic cleaning
potion, no magic food and no
magic pill to make this all hap-
pen. It comes with consistent
babysteps done daily, period. It's
so simple, yet we spend so much
time looking for that magic
something.
FlyLady says that all you need
to clean is a little soap (any kind
of soap) and some elbow grease
to clean. It's the same thing with
food and losing that body clut-

overeat and that puts your body
working -overtime to digest
everything. Not only that, but by
NOT eating at regular intervals
during the day, you put your
metabolism in PARK. There is no
need for your body to work at
optimum capacity; it thinks a
famine is approaching and it


needs to hold on to the very
thing you're trying to deal with:
body clutter!
We need to move ourselves
toward good, wholesome, easily
identifiable food eaten at regular
intervals. This was a big lesson
for me - and resulted in 50
pounds less body clutter. Why so
effective? Because your metabo-
lism kicks in when its given fuel
(food) and burns more efficient-
ly. If you starve it, it won't do
what you want it to do! Your car
will not go anywhere without
gas, your body is no different.
Breakfast is the most impor-
tant meal of the day as it gets you
started off right AND it gets your
metabolism going. Here are 8
ideas for good, easy breakfasts
from the Body Clutter Menu-
Mailer that we offer on Sav-
ingDinner.com ... enjoy:

'Too pretty to use' items turn into clutter


Our homes are filled with all
manner of stuff! This clutter
takes on a life of its own and it is
all because we are in'fear! You
can turn the most useful thing in
the world into clutter if you don't
use it! The other day I received a
complaint about our 100 percent
cotton dishtowels. She said,
"They are too pretty to mess up,
can I just hang them up and look
at them?'
This is all something we have
done and continue to do uncon-
sciously. We are in fear that we
will not be able to get whatever it
is again so we save it. Or we buy
something and we are afraid we
will never be able to afford it
again. It is fine and good to take
care of your possessions but to
not use it because you might
mess it up is a negative way of
living our lives.
They are dishtowels and not
framed quotes to be displayed on
a wall! Dishtowels have a pur-
pose! They dry dishes, clean off
your hands, wipe the faces of
your babies and clean up spills!
They are to be used and in the
process of using them, they are
loved! They bless you with their
usefulness and with the words
that are stitched on them. Yes you
may love them and don't want to
mess them up! This line of think-
ing is what I am working so hard
to declutter from your head.
Let me tell you a story. Many
years ago we bought a brand
new car. I was not allowed to
drive the car because I might
mess it up! The first time I drove
it, a rock popped up and cracked
the windshield. I guess I have a
rebellious nature because after
that I made sure that I drove it
whenever I wanted. I eventually
drove the wheels off of that car
and it blessed me for many
years. I finally released it after
Robert and I married. I was very
sad to let that car go because it
had been a tool to help me sur-
vive a bad marriage. It gave;me
courage to drive away because it

was my car and one summer I
practically lived in that car when
I was working many long hours
at the Brevard Music Center. It
had sheltered me from the
storms of life and I was thankful
for it. I had not saved it for
"GOOD" I used it and I was
blessed by the car.
Using something means you
love it! Holding on to things and
not using them is fear. Fear is the
opposite of love. It is hoarding.

A calendar is to be used! So
what, if you have to mark some-
thing out! That is what calendars
are for. Schedules change and
we make mistakes. The dishtow-
els are to be used too.
What have you been saving
out of fear? Use it or release it to
someone who will! This change
in attitude is going to help you
declutter your home! Isn't it fun
to get rid of the negativity too! I
love the song "Please Release
Me, Let me Go"! Sing it from
your clutter's point of view. I
sang it loud when I released
much of my clutter. Somehow
music makes it easier.
If you are not going to use it
then give it away to someone
who will!

County is not suggesting locally.
Dr. Nicholas also provided
commissioners with a review of
what neighboring counties
charge and Hendry County's
proposed impact fees ranked
among the lowest, approximate-

Charlotte counties, but far
below Lee, DeSoto and Collier

Dr. Nicholas himself said the

Florida. Dr. Nicholas worked
with department heads and

The report was initially sub-

'Belles' of the ball field are going places

CLEWISTONr- The Belles Divi-
sion, ages 13-15, held their final
game of the season in Clewiston
on Tuesday, May 22. Both teams,
Howell Oil & Hungry Howies,
went undefeated against two
LaBelle teams and one Belle Glade
team. They have been practicing
and/or playing games since March.
All of the coaches are volunteers
that try to help the girls to improve
their softball skills (batting, fielding
and base running), promote
sportsmanship and encourage the
girls to have fun through activity.
The teams mingled together for
the final picture of the season,
some of them having played on
each others teams since T-ball.
Hopefully an All-Star Team will be'.
formed from the group. If our :
"Belles" win at districts, they will .
travel to Sneeds, in early July for the
State play-off games. Submitted photo/Brenda Whidden

The Terriers fall 40-6 to Gateway Charter


MOORE HAVEN - The
Moore Haven Terriers fell 40-6 to
Gateway Charter High School on
Friday, May 18 at Terrier Field.
Gateway jumped out to a 20-0
lead but the Terriers rallied with
a 70 yard scoring drive, capped
by a 22 yard touchdown run by
Sophomore Fred Hall.
The Terriers however, were
unable to slow down Gateway's
talented offense and keep the
game close. Gateway dressed
out 40 players for the game and


was able to wear down the
smaller home squad.
Antwonne McCloud and Dal-
ton Britt alternated at quarter-
back for Moore Haven and each
player showed promise for the
upcoming season.
"Antwonne is a great athlete
and may play several positions
for us this year. We want to get
the ball in his hands so he can
make plays," said Coach Bond.
"Dalton is a smart quarter-
back and picked up our offense


rather quickly.
He showed poise tonight and
made some good throws."
Richard Anderson led the Ter-
riers with 50 yards receiving and
six tackles on defense. Xavier
Fagan also had six tackles for the
Terriers.
Despite the score, Coach
Bond was pleased with the over-
all performance of the spring
season. "This spring we were
able to install about 50 percent
of our offense. We will improve

Like a Mighty Army - Church of God


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A minister asked a returned GI
to speak one Sunday. He consent-
ed reluctantly to do so, but on
condition that just before he was
to speak the congregation sing,
"Like A Mighty Army Moves The
Church Of God" (Onward Christ-
ian Soldiers). Here is what the
young man said:
"Like a mighty army moves the
church of God? That might have
been all right once, but the trou-
ble now is that about ten million


men know exactly how an army
moves and it doesn't move the
way a lot of you folks do in the
church - or do not."
"Suppose the army accepted
the lame excuses that many of
you think are good enough to
serve as an alibi for not attending
the church services."
"Imagine this if you can -
Reveille at 7 a.m. - squads on
parade ground. The sergeant
barks out, 'Count fours.' One.
Two Three.... Number four is
missing. "Where's Private
Smith?"


"Oh," says a chap by the
vacant place, "Mr. Smith was too
sleepy to get up this morning; he
was out late last night and needed
the sleep. He said to tell you he
would be with you in spirit.
Remember me to him."
"Where's Brown?' asks the
sergeant.
"Oh, puts in another chap,
"He's playing golf. He gets only
one day a week for recreation and
you know how important that is."
"Where's Robinson?"
"Robinson, explains a buddy,
is sorry not to greet you in person,


but he is entertaining guests today
and of course, couldn't come.
Besides, he was at drill last week."
Honest, not, did any conversa-
tion like that ever happen in any
army? Don't make me laugh! If
any GI tried to pull that stuff, he
would get twenty days in the brig!
Yet, you hear stuff like that every
week in the church and it is said
with a straight face, too!
"Like a mighty army? Why, if
this church really moved like a
mighty army, a lot of you folks
would be court-martialed within
the hour."

Memorial Day comes once a year and once a week


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Today is the actual "Memorial
Day" - we've changed some cel-
ebrations to coincide with week-
ends, giving people times for
"mini-vaca- W ,-
tions" or,
longer times
off in
sequence. I try h
to use such -'
holidays to
catch up on . -
projects taking
more than one
or two days; SamuelS.
usually Thomas
accomplishing
something not otherwise likely
to get done. The difficulty is,
though, that the long holiday
weekend becomes an end in
itself and it is all too tempting to
forget to celebrate or remember
the reason for it.
I've heard that people in Amer-
ica spend more time working
each week than most of the other
nations in the world; time off
becomes all too precious and
there had better be a very good
reason for someone to want to


demand any of it, no matter how
good the cause.
The traditions that spring up
around some holidays (like the
Indianapolis 500 race) have come
into being and may not have any-
thing to do whatsoever with the
holiday or reason it is celebrated
in the first place.
This edition of the news
comes on the actual Memorial
Day. Maybe it's not a "holiday"
but it might be worthwhile to take
a moment out to remember. We
are called to remember those
who have made a sacrifice; to
memorialize them and to recall
what they offered. The offering
that was made was for us.
The wry truism that, "Old sol-
diers never die...young ones do"
caused me to reflect on so many
of those who would have been in
the prime of their lives to give up
their lives for people they would
have never met, for a world that
would never be shared, for condi-
tions they never dreamed about.
There is a park in Palmyra, N.J.
named after Fredrick M. Rodgers.
He was 27 years old when he was
killed. He was shot by a sniper in
the Argonne Forest during the
First World War. I never met him
but I know his family because it is


my family. My great-grandmother
never really believed he died no
matter how many others told her
it was really so. Like so many oth-
ers, he lives on; not in the sense
my great-grandmother might
have liked, but in the sense that
he is remembered, memorialized
by those who followed; continue
their lives because of his sacrifice
and who honor his memory.
Memorial Day is the time I
reflect on this distant relative;
dead over twenty years before I
was born. I try to honor him and
all of the others; in all of the wars,
people known and unknown, all
worthy of our memorial. Our tra-
dition has a prayer to bless the
things we offer to God that thanks
God for the gifts of memory, rea-
son and skill. It is our capacity to
remember that is a big part of our
being distinctly human. Our
memories give us perspective and
teach us, give us reverence and
respect, let us learn from what
happens to us and keeps alive all
that we should have as a part of
our very being. They give us a
foundation on which growing
takes place, where progress is
founded, where life advances.
On this Memorial Day, I'll take
a moment out to remember all


those who gave; those I've met
and those I wish I could have met
and those I haven't met. What we
have, what I have is built on what
they gave us and they're worth
remembering.
Each Sunday I celebrate
another who gave His life. Each
time we celebrate communion,
we are called by those words He
spoke to, "Do this in remem-
brance of me," that we don't for-
get and that, somehow, He
comes.among us once more. For
some, it is even hard to get out
on the weekends for an hour or
so: after all, we work more than
the rest of the world.
My own feeling is though, we
have something worth the sacri-
fice to remember and memorial-
ize. It is to honor and to recall
another who made a sacrifice,
who laid down His life, who asks
that we remember Him and our
worship is to be a fitting memori-
al. Each Sunday is a Memorial Day
too. We who "eat this bread and
drink this cup...Proclaim the
Lord's death until He comes." (1
Corinthians 11:26).
Thank God for all of our
memorials: the 31st of May and
the ones we are called to cele-
brate each week, too.


For when there is no such thing as independence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
In Israel, they say that when it
rains, God is blessing the earth. I
would love for God to rain down
His blessings on us! Our drought
and dryness, however, doesn't
really compare to the desert
wilderness that God's people
went through as they left Egypt
and headed towards the Holy
Land.
Some time ago, a man decided
to try to retrace the Sinai desert
experience where God's .people
wandered for forty years. He
spent time with the nomadic
Bedouins who make that wilder-
ness their home. He walked the
hot sands and the rugged wilder-
ness mountains. In the process,
he found himself on an unantici-
pated journey of spiritual discov-
ery. He learned something about
why God led His children through
the desert - and why God still
leads. This man's conclusion was


this: "In the desert, there's no
such thing as independence - only
dependence."
We were raised to be inde-
pendent. It probably started when
we were raised with thoughts and
encourage-
ment that we
could do it by'
ourselves. And
we've been try-
ing to do it by
ourselves ever
since. This
independence
flows over into
our walk of John
faith - even Hicks
when it comes
to totally trusting God.
Yes, we believe in God. Yes, we
go church. Yes, we try to live by
God's commandments. But we
want to drive. We like to be in
control (evidenced in our desire
to be the one in control of the TV
remote!) In life, we believe that
we can make it happen. We can
make it work or we can fix it.


Then comes the time of
drought; a season in our life when
the bottom drops out and things
go dry. We find ourselves
parched. The heat is intense.
Before we know it, we are worn
out physically, emotionally and
spiritually. Welcome to the wilder-
ness.
In the midst of our wilderness
experience, it's important for us
to remember that the desert is
part of the plan and to not give up
or give in. It was part of the plan
for the Israelites. It was part of the
plan for John the Baptist as it was
for Paul and as it was for the Son
of God and it is for you and me.
Remember the Word of God
for the people of God in
Deuteronomy 8:2-4: "Remember
how the Lord your God led you all
the way in the desert... to humble
you and to test you in order to
know what was in your heart, -
to teach you that man does not
live on bread alone but on every
word that comes from the mouth
of the Lord."


God says He leads us into the
desert to humble us; to bring us to
a place where the Lord is all we
have. It is at such times we learn
that the Lord is all we need. In the
desert, there's no such thing as
independence - only dependence.
When we come to our Lord run-
ning on empty and in total need,
we open ourselves up to an expe-
rience of God's power and God's
grace we can't get any other way.
The desert may not be pleas-
ant. It may stress us out. It may
strip us down. But in the midst of
it, remember that God does not
abandon us. God led His people
through the wilderness then and
still leads today. God is there with
us, and His promise is that in our
times of need, He will carry us as
a father carries his child
(Deuteronomy 1:31). It's a "foot-
prints in the sand" type of experi-
ence. In our hardest times of life,
God is there to carry us so that we
can complete the journey and go
farther than we would ever be
able to go on our own.

Construction school grad, Faustin Franconi receives his "tools of the trade" as he gradu-
ates from Palm Beach County Community College's Introduction to Construction program
on May 10.


Proudly displaying his certificate, Wilner Fertil graduated from the Introduction to Construc-
tion courses and plans to make a living in the construction field.


Construction graduates ready to make their dreams come true


BELLE GLADE - Tool belts
overflowing with tools, hard hats,
work clothes vouchers, OSHA
cards and certificates are the mate-
rial items given to Palm Beach
Community College's Introduction
to Construction graduates during a
celebration in their honor at the


Belle Glade Elk's Club on May 10.
While their training and these
items gave the students all that
they need to find entry-level
employment in the construction
field, it is those things that cannot
be seen or touched that will have
the biggest impact on the 30


graduates' lives.
Through classroom lectures
and hands-on projects, the stu-
dents became proficient in the
essentials of the labor construction
field. During the 168-hour course,
they developed skills in safety,
hand tools, power tools, construc-


tion math, blueprints, basic rig-
ging, masonry, carpentry and plas-
tic pipe fitting.
These newly gained skills both
increase the graduates' earning
power and their confidence.
Many of the students, either
unemployed or underemployed,

Pioneer Park Elementary hosts Reading event


Pioneer Park Elementary
School had their Annual Reading
Carnival on May 24, 2007. The stu-
dents from Pre-K through 5th

of their hard work throughout the
" year ,and. getting excited, about

attended the first show and 3rd
through 5th attended afterwards.
The students joined in several Car-
nival Activities including a ring
toss, duck pond, bean bag throws,
tattoo booth, Bounce House and
the HUGH inflated Obstacle
Course.
They also got to enjoy dunking
their favorite teacher in the dunk
tank. They were treated to the
popcorn and sno-cone booths
where they really enjoyed the deli-
cious treats. Cupcakes were avail-
able for each of the students, who


then frosted and decorated their
own cupcake.
Ms. Kelly Sullivan and Chris
Boldin, Reading Coaches, were the
coordinators of this event. They dis-
tributed bags of books and suggest-
ed a summer reading list specific to
each child's grade level and gave a
reading log to the children to keep
track of all the books they will read
during the summer months. The
day ended with the DEAR activity
where all the children "Dropped
Everything and Read." A HUGH
thank you goes to B/E Aerospace,

ing this day possible.

Former Miami Dolphin tackles



conservation issues


Dwight Stephenson, 49-year-old
NFL hall-of-famer for the Miami Dol-
phins, has joined the lineup on the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission.
Stephenson, who lives with his
wife, Dinah, in Delray Beach, received
word last week that Gov. Charlie Crist
had appointed him to replace Sandra
Kaupe on the seven-member Com-
mission. The couple has three grown
children - Marshea, Dwight Jr. and
Dwayne.
The new Commissioner played
center for the Miami Dolphins from


1980 to 1987. Before then, he played
center for the University of Alabama,
where he studied social work. His
compassion for children and people
in need of social services led him to
serve on the boards of directors for
United Cerebral Palsy and the Boys
and Girls Clubs of Broward County.
Stephenson recently collected and
donated 25 personal computers to at-
risk kids in Miami Beach.
He also serves on the Orange
Bowl Committee.
Stephenson is president of D.
Stephenson Construction, Inc. - a


general contractor.
In his spare time, Stephenson said,
he enjoys lake-fishing for bream and
bass and does a little deep-sea fishing.
He also enjoys turkey hunting and
playing golf.
Stephenson was born in Murfrees-
boro, N.C. and grew up in Hampton,
Va., where he lived until he attended
college.
"We all have to protect what's
important," Stephenson said. "That's
why I want to serve on the Commis-
sion. Fish and wildlife are an impor-
tant part of life in Florida."
