Clewiston High scores


up, some take tumble


In wake of state scoring
controversy some schools
report lower grades

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
As promised, Clewiston High School ad-
ministrators are preparing to see some much-
improved scores later this year when official
letter grades are issued. The school, which
received an F-score last year, and whose stu-
dents were almost eligible for vouchers for
transfers to other schools, seemed to do a lot
of things right this time around.
Meanwhile, the school district, like many
districts around the state, are getting used to
the idea that their schools performed slightly
worse than they did last year. With contro-
versies surrounding how the state graded
FCAT exams, schools around the state
have brought into question just how tests
were measured this year, but here in Hen-
dry County, administrators prefer to forge
ahead.
According to C. Gordon Swaggerty, as-


sistant superintendent of schools for Hendry
County, the state did its research and had
two independent audit groups take a look at
the test results to determine they were ac-
curate.
"We had been concerned with the lower
quartile learning gains not being quite up to
par with what they've been in the past," he
said. "In elementary schools we were espe-
cially concerned with Grades four and five
not having the growth that we thought we
would have had -- having said that we'll take
them at their word and move on."
Test results are as follows, with last year's
grade compared to the most recent grade:

Elementary:
Central Elementary's grade improved
from a 'C' to a 'B' this year.
Country Oaks Elementary's grade
was unchanged, and was the county's only
'A' school.
Fully three other elementary schools saw
their letter grade drop from an 'A' last year

To stop or not to stop: take care when approaching buses


Sharing the road with
school buses

By Lt. Susan Harrelle
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
If you are heading to work or have an
appointment you want to be at on-time for
Monday morning, then you might want to


set your alarm clock a few minutes earlier.
Monday, Aug. 23 marks the first day of
school for Hendry County students. The big
yellow buses will be out in force transport-
ing some 4,500 students and that could slow
things down a bit. Hendry County Sheriff
Steve Whidden is asking that drivers watch
out and be patient.
"Kids are going to be out and about," said


Sheriff Steve Whidden. "Kids will be walking
to school, waiting at school bus stops, and
driving, so everybody needs to be careful."
In Clewiston drivers may experience
congestion in the area of Clewiston Middle
School on U.S. 27 and Pasadena. Remem-
ber to watch for children crossing U.S. 27 at
West Pasadena. In the area of the Eastside El-
ementary, Westside Elementary and Central


Elementary on WC. Owens, W Arroya and
Dean Duff parents may experience heavy
traffic. South Francisco and East Aztec road-
ways will be shared with both parents and
students entering Clewiston High School.
"Bus safety is a year-around concern,"
said Sheriff Whidden. "I wanted to take this
opportunity to remind drivers of the laws

Why I support Jess Santamaria
for Palm Beach County Commissioner

by Jermaine Webb
Glades Area Resident and Community Activist





All too often public officials tend to lose themselves in their titles and the perceived benefits
that accompany those titles. Not Jess Santamaria. When I first met him over a year ago,
he insisted that I call him Jess instead of Commissioner Santamaria and the more I get to
know him, the more I understand why. The term public servant is much more fitting.

Jess' refusal to accept campaign contributions from lobbyists or special interests means
Jess isn't beholden to anyone. This autonomy is another reason why I endorse him in
his re-election bid. His primary agenda is serving the people whether or not they are of
the monied class.

When I initially met Jess, I challenged him and his commitment to the Glades. Instead of
getting defensive and pulling away, he embraced me, unlike other people in positions of
authority that I've encountered in the past. Jess saw beyond my exterior and focused on the
substance of the issues that I felt needed to be addressed. He in turn challenged me to remain
solution oriented and went on to say that he was committed to helping the Glades Region
become a better place to live whether or not he was county commissioner. From that point
on, I have witnessed firsthand his "putting his money where his mouth is," by funding several
much needed projects in the Glades that benefitted both elders and young adults and with
little to no fanfare.

Jess is a true example of what it means to be leader as true leadership means "servicing"
the needs of the people. It is with great honor that I endorse Jess' bid for re-election as
Palm Beach County Commissioner.

Hendry School District takes questions


Editor's Note: District leaders will be an-
swering questions sent in to The Clewiston
News by local parents on a wide variety of
issues affecting the Hendry County school
system. Administrators have pledged to an-
swer openly and without reservation.

This week's question: "I'm concerned
with the level of exercise that children in
our area elementary schools are getting.
My child has a single 40-minute PE. class
per week. Can you explain the reason for
this?"

Jodi Bell
Hendry County School District director of
federal programs.
The physical activity of children has
risen to the forefront of national concerns.


There is information reported almost on a
daily basis about the childhood obesity epi-
demic.
The schools in the Hendry County
School District take these concerns very se-
riously. The number of formal P.E. classes
varies per school according to the number
of P.E. teachers at the school, the number
of students at the school, and the number
of PE. classes that need to be scheduled in
the school day.
Each student receives at least one formal
P.E. class per week, and along with formal
P.E. classes, the schools schedule super-
vised play time (recess) that is made up of
free play, along with structured activities
to get all children to move. This is an area
where parents can provide help and assis-
tance.
Students do need some quiet time after


school to complete homework assignments
and required readings, but along with this
quiet time, we encourage parents to create
time for their children to run, play, and get
exercise after the school day.
This can be accomplished by restricting
the number of minutes that children spend
in front of a television set, or playing video
games, and replacing those activities with
activities that encourage children to move.
Both communities in Hendry County
also run wonderful youth sports programs
for football, baseball, and soccer that pro-
vide children great opportunities for physi-
cal activity. If you would like more informa-
tion regarding ideas to get your child more
physically active, please do not hesitate
to contact the PE. teacher at your child's
school.

Treasured artifacts of Lake Okeechobee's past


iFnOtO/Iutin wilson


This item is a stone axe was a trade item that probably came from Georgia.


Museum encourages
residents to donate artifacts

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The Clewiston Museum is setting up a
Native-American exhibit, where it will soon
display artifacts and information on the
Mayaimis people (The Belle Glades Culture)
who once lived around the shores of Lake
Okeechobee.
In previous years, the museum has re-
ceived donated Native-American artifacts
that were initially collected from around the
lake. We are now asking for your help in
providing the museum with additional arti-
facts, so that we can add to our collection
and create an enhanced educational and en-
tertaining exhibit for our visitors.


The museum has already contacted pri-
vate and state museums with requests for
artifact loans. We are now appealing to the
residents of the Glades, who may have prized
artifacts in their procession that someone (a
family member or friend) may have found
in past years. If you have a Native-American
artifact, which was found in the Glades and
that is currently gathering dust, we ask that
you please consider providing it as a gift to
the Clewiston Museum for the greater public
good. Your generous contribution would be
greatly appreciated and well received by the
Clewiston Museum.
Should you prefer not to donate your
artifact, then we suggest that you consider
lending the artifact to the museum for a
designated period of time so that others
can enjoy it and also learn more about the
early Native-American heritage around Lake
Okeechobee. All artifacts received by the
museum will be safely displayed in secured,
glass cases that are constantly monitored by
electronic surveillance.
Museum visitors, including public and
private school tours, would benefit greatly
from your generosity and giving spirit. Your
artifacts will help make Lake Okeechobee's
early historical past come alive by transport-
ing inquisitive minds back to the time when
Mayaimis villages once stood where our
Glades communities now exist.
Butch Wilson, the Clewiston Museum di-
rector, grew up in the Glades and over the
years he has gathered a wealth of stories
and information on many artifacts that were
believed to have been discovered around
Lake Okeechobee.
"Some of these stories could indeed be
exaggerated as "Tall Tales," but many more
are true, said Mr. Wilson. "Over the years,
numerous persons have entrusted me to
see and hold some of their priceless histori-
cal treasures of Lake Okeechobee's past."
If you're willing to assist the Clewiston
Museum in this endeavor by donating or
lendinQ an artifact that will enhance the Na-


tive-American exhibit, please call Butch Wil-
son at 863-983-2870. He encourages you to
stop by for a free tour and discuss this won-
derful opportunity. You may also e-mail him
at clewistonmuseum@embarqmail.com for
additional information.

Choosing Wisely
Rev. Samuel Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church
/ / It is a serious matter in the
military to be caught sleeping
on guard duty! One soldier who
took a nap in his jeep denied he
was asleep; but apparently put
his head on the steering wheel and awoke
with the manufacturer's raised emblem in
the center of the wheel imprinted on his
forehead. Another
advised friends
to be sure to say .
Amen' before you .
open your eyes if
you're caught!
This dereliction
of duty goes back
at least to Biblical
times. Those who
were assigned to
guard the tomb of
the newly-crucified
Jesus of Nazareth
saw the resurrected
Lord (Matthew Rev. Thomas.
28:3) but this was
well outside of their
realm of experience. When they reported
seeing a risen Lord, the chief priests of the
day 'devised a plan (v. 12).' They gave the
soldiers a large sumn of money, telling then
to say 'His disciples came during the night
and stole Him away while we were asleep!
(v. 13)' Then, they further offered to cover
up by assuring the soldiers that they would
keep them out of trouble if their story about
dereliction of duty got to the governor! The
message? 'Lie! Make a false confession.
We'll cover for you. Here's some money to
sweeten the deal.'
Matthew reported the account had been
widely circulated. Rather than trying to ac-
count for what is extraordinary and outside
of one's comfort zone, just say 'It isn't true,'
or 'I didn't see anything.' No matter how
many witnesses, no matter how much
documentation, no matter how strong the
evidence; just deny it all. In the event that
someone is likely to get in trouble over all
of it, cover for them and downplay their
shortcomings. 'Sleeping on duty?'
Well, maybe the night was long, or may-
be they had just completed a tiring mission
before being assigned to guard the tomnb,
or maybe their relief guards didn't show up.
Anything but the truth! The upshot of it all,
of course, was that there were many wit-
nesses to the resurrection of the Risen Lord;
the truth has prevailed for centuries and
conspirators have fallen into obscurity. In
the long run, the truth will prevail. The Lord
who proclaimed 'I am the way, the truth,
and the life' knew what He was talking
about; and prevailed. Those who conspired
to squelch the story failed. Does any of this
have any modern application? As I read the
papers, listen to the news, hear what lead-
ers and potential leaders are saying about
each other, I am led to believe that the
Biblical message hasn't quite gotten out yet.
Why do people do such things when
they ought to know better? The answer is
that such tactics have been known to work,
at least in the short run. The mantra seems


to be 'Trade ethics for short-term gains
and hope for the best.' Then there is the
story of the cross and the resurrection. The
message is 'Follow the way, serve the truth,
have the life.' Choose wisely."

Belly Button Theology
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
/ / Belly buttons. Adam and Eve
' didn't have one. Barbara Eden
couldn't show hers. Belly danc-
ers adorn theirs, Bikinis expose
them, rings pierce them, and
lint collects in them. And now I'm writing
about them.
Why? Because scientists just came out
with a report that stated the position of
a person's belly button can help people
excel at certain sports. 'Given two run-
ners or swimmers of the same height,
what matters most
is the position of
the belly-button,
which is the center
of gravity.'
In researching
the research, I
discovered that the
act of contemplat-
ing one's navel b .
as a method of
achieving higher
meditation is called
Omphaloskepsis.
Who would figure? Pastor Hicks.
But there's more.
There are research-
ers in the field of belly button lint. If that
isn't strange enough, one won the Nobel
Prize for Interdisciplinary Research in 2002
thanks to his belly button lint study.
In the womb, we were connected to our
mother through this orifice which was the
source of all of our nutrients and oxygen.
The cutting of the cord at birth is more than
symbolic, for it challenges us to survive
within our own machinery. The stump that
remains withers, and is called the navel,
belly button, or umbilicus--all words de-
scribing the center of our physical bodies.
Think back for a orient. When was
the last time you really contemplated your
navel? Not just a passing thought or casual
scratch to remove some wayward lint, but
deep cogitation with the intention of finding
more meaning in the world.
In my recent contemplation, I realized
that churches and belly buttons come in
basically two styles: innies and duties. Mis-
sionally thinking, duties are preferable for
churches. The most critical factor determin-
ing a church's missional health is whether
its energy is focused outwardly in mission
or inwardly in self-preoccupation.
A growing church's energy is focused
out into the conmmrnunity. As a congrega-
tion matures, there comes a season when
increasingly more of the congregation's
energy is consumed in caring for their
members, maintaining their facilities and
continuing their beloved traditions. The
church may still grow for a time, but even-
tually the ministry becomes one of mainte-
nance more than ministry, which leads to
decline and eventual collapse. People, mon-


ey, resources and hope hemorrhage from
the congregation until finally it is empty.
When a church starts making the mis-
sional choice of giving themselves away in
service as the Lord's disciples, their energy
is refocused and the congregation's life
cycle literally can begin again.
Theologically, the church exists for oth-
ers. A recent survey of members of 1,000
churches, however, which asked the ques-
tion, 'Why does the church exist?' resulted
in 89% saying the church exists 'to meet the
needs of me and my family.'
Maybe we all need to contemplate our
navels a little more. Are you an innie or an
outie? Is your life driven by personal prefer-
ences or drawn out of itself in common
ministry to others?"

Modest Apparel
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
/ / There are some religious people
who are reluctant to take the
Bible seriously when it speaks
about 'Modest Apparel' (I Timo-
thy 2:8-9). Modest means not to
be extravagant, or flamboyant, and to have
your body decently covered. And if you sug-
gest that the Christian's body be discreetly
covered, they tend to look upon you as a
prude. They disregard the fact that immod-
est dress is a contributing factor in produc-
ing immodest and improper thoughts (and
behavior).
Jesus warned, 'But I say unto you, That
whosoever looketh on a woman to lust
after her hath committed adultery with her
already in his heart' (Matthew 5:27-30).
Even in times more ancient, Job mused the
same question, 'I made a covenant with
mine eyes, why then should I think upon
a maid?' (Job 31:1). King David was less
fortunate. The lust of the eyes led him into
the overt act of adultery (2 Samuel 11:2-4).
His story is tragic history.
It seems at times some people of the
world are wiser than the supposed chil-
dren of light. The following comes form a
handbook for visitors to the prison system
of the state of Florida. Read it and realize
the truthfulness of this article. God will hold
you accountable if you are a stumbling
block to others (I Cor. 8:12).
Now from the prison handbook: 'What
To Wear When You Visit': 'It is not our
purpose to pass judgment of any kind in
limiting the kinds of clothing that may be al-
lowed in the visitation area. These limits are
designed to prevent harassment, discomfort
and embarrassing incidents that may spoil
your visit. Some examples of clothing that
are not appropriate for the visitation area
are: 1 .Mini or micro skirts. 2.Shorts or cut-
offs. 3.Halter tops and tank tops. 4.'Fishnet
jerseys. 5.Excessively tight fitting pants
and jeans. 6.Any clothing with suggestive
slogans or illustrations.
We also ask that men wear shirts at all
times and the ladies wear bras or other suit-
able garments. If for comforts sake you find
it necessary to travel to the center in cloth-
ing mentioned above as not appropriate,
we invite you to bring a change of clothing
and use the rest room in the waiting area to
change before entering visitation.'"

'Southern Gardens growers, vendors and friends'


Company responds to state
purchase of citrus land

By Rick Kress
Southern Gardens Citrus
The on-going transaction, whereby the
South Florida Water Management District
has been negotiating a land sale with U.S.
Sugar for the purpose of Everglades restora-
tion, is approaching a conclusion. U.S. Sug-
ar's Board of Directors and the Governing
Board of the SFWMD last week approved
revised contracts for the purchase of 27,000
acres of US Sugar and Southern Gardens Cit-
rus land; closing is scheduled by October 11,
2010.
From the Southern Gardens perspective,
this deal affects only the land associated with
citrus production from the Southern Grove
unit. This transaction today does not affect
the grove operations at the Devil's Garden
or the Dunwody/Alcoma units. Under the
terms of the revised agreement, Southern
Gardens will continue to lease and operate
the Southern Grove until such time that the
SFWMD provides a one (1) year notice for
initiation of restoration project construc-
tion. In the meantime, Southern Gardens
will continue to grow and harvest oranges
on this property (as well as the Devil's Gar-
den and Dunwody/Alcoma units which we
retain).
Upon completion of this initial acquisi-
tion, should the economy and tax revenues
improve, the SFWMD retains the option in
the future to purchase additional land from
U.S. Sugar/Southern Gardens.
As we have stated previously and want to
convey again, the Southern Gardens Citrus
Processing facility is not affected as a result
of this initial land purchase agreement or as
a result of this transaction at any time in the
future.
We have and will continue to produce
and ship high quality NFC, concentrated
orange juice and by-products. Southern
Gardens Citrus Processing remains the only
production facility in close proximity to the
high volume of citrus trees and fruit in this
region.
During the lengthy period since the initial
proposed transaction with SFWMD was an-
nounced, Southern Gardens has continued
to operate its entire citrus business with an
eye to the future. Specific areas of focus to
date and going forward are as follows:
Southern Gardens is a leader in research-
ing, educating and dealing with the current
citrus disease; HLB/greening. Our com-
pany has been invested significant funds in
several internal disease research projects.
These projects have progressed to the point
that citrus trees that have proven in the lab
to be resistant to canker and greening were
planted by us in a USDA approved site for
field testing.
These projects plus several others con-
tinue and we believe that in the near future,
Southern Gardens will find a viable solution
to the greening and canker disease.
Our nursery operation in northern Flori-
da is producing high quality citrus trees for
supply to our own groves as well as on a
commercial basis to growers. We have been


rnoio/www.siwma.gov
Southern Gardens Citrus plans to continue operating it's processing plant and
facilities.


resetting trees in our groves for the last two
(2) years and will continue to do so in the
future. We are in the process of doubling our
budwood supply at the nursery in advance
of a further expansion to the facility. These
investments will position us as a supplier
of disease-free trees, with the end result of
being able to supply juice to our customers
long into the future.
At our processing facility, we are working
on the expansion plans that will double our
production capacity for frozen pulp cells.
We are evaluating alternative transportation
modes for juices and by-products as well as
alternative energy sources to run the plant in


order to reduce our carbon footprint.
With the detection of the black spot dis-
ease in Florida at the end of the 2009/2010
harvest, USSC/SGC is setting up our PCR
lab to provide analytical capabilities for the
Florida citrus industry on this disease for this
next harvest year. Consistent with the testing
for HLB/greening, these tests will be done at
no charge to the grower.
Contrary to the false rumors and specula-
tion involving Southern Gardens Citrus Pro-
cessing over the last three years, our busi-
ness remains a vibrant part of this industry
and as illustrated above, is positioned well
for the future.

SFWMD Governing Board approves key agreement


Indian River Lagoon
restoration good for
Everglades

Nanciann Regalado
Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Jack-
sonville District applauds today's approval of
the Indian River Lagoon South (IRL-S) Phase
I Project Partnership Agreement by the South
Florida Water Management District Govern-
ing Board.
"This agreement marks another huge
gain for Everglades restoration," said Stu Ap-
pelbaum, Corps' Jacksonville District deputy
for restoration. "This project will help get the
water right in the Indian River Lagoon via a
series of reservoirs and water treatment ar-
eas that will improve the quality, timing, vol-
ume and rate of flow from local basins."
Board approval of partnership agree-
ments for Comprehensive Everglades Resto-
ration Plan (CERP) projects included in the
Water Resources Development Act of 2007
(WRDA 2007) are vital to maintaining mo-
mentum in Everglades restoration. WRDA


"The Indian River Lagoon South project is another building block in
Everglades restoration we've recently set into place. The likelihood
of restoration becomes stronger every day as we move forward
with these projects."
Julie Hill-Gabriel


2007 included authorization for the IRL-S,
Picayune Strand Restoration and Site 1 Res-
ervoir projects.
Another key to progress was the CERP
Master Agreement adoption a year ago by
the South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict and the Army Corps of Engineers. That
precedent-setting agreement enabled agen-
cy staff to develop Project Partnership Agree-
ments (PPAs).
To date, the SFWMD and the Corps have
approved five PPAs for CERP projects: IRL-S
Phase I; Melaleuca Quarantine Facility; L-31 N
Seepage Management Pilot Project; Site 1
Reservoir, Phase I; and Picayune Strand Res-
toration project (listed from most recently
approved to earliest approved).


"The Indian River Lagoon South project
is another building block in Everglades res-
toration we've recently set into place," said
Julie Hill-Gabriel, Audubon of Florida senior
Everglades policy associate. "The likelihood
of restoration becomes stronger every day
as we move forward with these projects."
The project, located on 12,000 acres in
Martin County, is divided into two phases,
and includes 13 components. The first phase
of the IRL-S project has an estimated cost of
$1.1 billion, and contains eight components
that will provide water storage and storm-
water treatment areas in the C-23, C-24 and
C-44 basins. Pending agency staff clarifica-
tion of issues related to treatment of soils
containing agrichemicals and mitigation for


wetland impacts, the IRL-S Phase I PPA will
be executed in early September. The Corps
anticipate awarding a construction contract
in January 2011. Phase 1 construction will
take about eight years.
"We're delighted that today the Corps of
Engineers and the Governing Board of the
South Florida Water Management District
approved entering into the Indian River La-
goon South Phase I Project Participation
Agreement," said Doug Smith, chairman of
the Martin County Board of County Commis-
sioners. "This is the final hurdle to allow the
Corps to move forward on the construction
of 12,000 acres of reservoir and stormwater
treatment areas in the St. Lucie Watershed.
This project will be built on lands purchased,
in part, by a $27 million contribution by the
citizens of Martin County."
"The CERP Indian River Lagoon South
project is designed to hold and treat excess
stormwater, reduce pollution of the St. Lu-
cie, provide essential jobs to the community
and result in a great addition to Martin Coun-
ty's legacy of environmental enhancement,
water quality protection and recreational
opportunities for our citizens," Smith said.

road are always required to stop.
Vehicles traveling on a divided, or sepa-

UNITED STATES SENATOR GOVERNOR ATTORNEY GENERAL
William Excoffery III Mike McCalister Holly Benson
William Billy Kogut Bill McCollum Pam Bondi

GLADES COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 2
Noah F. Sodrel: Our community is very important to me and I would like the oppor
tunity to serve you as your county commissioner. I look forward to a positive growth
in our county that will create jobs and not destroy our environment. I believe that
with the way our economy is, that we should not raise taxes but look for alternatives
within the agencies that can help us through our local and state government. We
should not increase the financial burden on our neighbors and friends by increasing
property taxes or with special taxing districts. I believe my experience from being a
business man will help me serve as your commissioner. If elected, I can not prom-
ise that the solutions to the problems facing the county will be easy to find, but I can promise that
every citizen of Glades County will have a voice in their local government. I have the experience
and determination necessary to do the job and if you elect me, it will be my privilege to serve each
and every one of you.
Donna Storter Long: You are the reason I seek RE-election to continue as YOUR advo-
cate in county government. I diligently protect your right to information concerning
actions considered and taken by the Commission and resulting effects on property
rights and taxes. My mamzelle@strato.net email "agenda notes" sent after BoCC
meetings provide instant transparency and promote accountability. Honesty, dedica-
lion and accountability are ethical principles I bring to Glades County government.
Having developed good relationships within county departments, I welcome your
inquiries for assistance in county-related issues. We cannot resolve all problems, but
be sure, I listen courteously and patiently to your concerns and always research the
matter and promptly respond. As the economic downturn has changed your income/outgo, Glades
County faces greater challenges for fiscal stewardship. We balanced our budget with fewer funds,
minimizing service reductions by maximizing frugal efficiency. We have not raised the millage rate,
and with lower assessments this year, your taxes should be lower. We, like you, will "tighten our
belts" and weather the economic storm. Please vote for me to continue serving you. YOUR money,
environment and children's future are at stake.

Heading back to school: health, safety and wellbeing


Pat Dobbins
Hendry/Glades County Health Department
Success in school starts with keeping stu-
dents healthy and safe. Parents should take
their children to their healthcare provider for
their annual well-child check-up and to make
sure all vaccinations and medical records are
in order. Healthy eating, adequate physical
activity and good sleep patterns are also in-
strumental to success in school.


Parents should speak with their children
about safely traveling to and from school.
This includes planning safe routes, remind-
ing them to stay on the sidewalk, crossing
the street only at designated crosswalks, and
showing them how to properly wear a bicy-
cle helmet if they are biking to school.
Parents should put sunscreen on their chil-
dren in the morning, or send it to the school
office so they can apply it before playing out-
doors to be protected from sun exposure.


It is recommended to use a sunscreen
that protects against both UVA and UVB rays
and has a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or
higher. Insurance improves children's access
to the medications and treatment they need
to control childhood illnesses and decrease
absences from school. The state of Florida of-
fers KidCare, a health insurance program for
children from birth through age 18. Children
can be eligible even if one or both parents are
working. Children covered by Florida Kid-


Care are eligible for comprehensive health
care, including sports physical, doctor visits,
check-ups, immunizations, surgery, prescrip-
tions, vision and hearing screenings, mental
health care, dental check-ups and hospital
stays.
Students with access to these and other
preventative health care services are likely to
be healthier and perform better in school. For
more information about KidCare, visit www.
FloridaKidCare.org or call 1-888-540-5437.

SFWMD approves 'River of Grass' deal


Amended land purchase
addresses changing
economic conditions

By Kayla Bergeron
SFWMD
The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) Governing Board today
approved unanimously with one abstention
a revised strategy to acquire land from the
United States Sugar Corporation for Ever-
glades restoration. The amended agreement
provides for the initial purchase of approxi-
mately 26,800 acres of strategically located
land south of Lake Okeechobee, with op-
tions to purchase another 153,000 acres
should economic conditions allow in the
future.
"The new terms allow the District to move
forward with this opportunity to restore the
River of Grass in a way that both better fits
Florida's current economic climate and also
addresses important federal mandates re-
lated to the Everglades," said SFWMD Gov-
erning Board Chairman Eric Buermann. "By
utilizing available cash on-hand and a fis-
cally prudent pay-as-you-go-approach, the
District will avoid new debt while ensuring
the continued delivery of mission-critical
services. The agency now also has immedi-
ate access to thousands of acres of property
with high restoration potential while pre-
serving the option to acquire additional land
to benefit the Everglades in the future."
Under the amended terms, the District
would initially invest approximately $197
million in cash to immediately acquire
26,800 acres, or 42 square miles, of land
in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA)
and C-139 basin for water quality and envi-
ronmental restoration projects. The District
would have options to purchase the remain-
ing 153,000 acres of land from U.S. Sugar for
up to 10 years.
Highlights of the amended acquisition
include:


*Acquisition of 17,900 citrus acres in
Hendry County to improve water quality in
the C-139 basin, where phosphorus loads
have been historically high. This parcel, just
west of thousands of acres of existing con-
structed wetlands, can be used for water
storage and treatment facilities that would
improve the quality of water flowing into the
Everglades.
Purchase of 8,900 acres of sugarcane
land in Palm Beach County to benefit the
Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge by
expanding existing Stormwater Treatment
Areas (STAs) and increasing water qual-
ity treatment for the S-5A basin, just east of
Lake Okeechobee.
*An exclusive 3-year option to purchase
either a specifically identified 46,800 acres or
the entire 153,000 acres at a fixed price of
$7,400 per acre. U.S. Sugar could sell the op-
tion property to a third party but must retain
the District's option.
*After the exclusive option period, a sub-
sequent 2-year, non-exclusive option to pur-
chase the approximately 46,800 acres at Fair
Market Value. U.S. Sugar could sell all or a
part of the option property, but subject to a
Right of First Refusal by the District.
*A subsequent 7-year, non-exclusive op-
tion to purchase the remaining acres at Fair
Market Value. U.S. Sugar could sell all or a
part of the option property, but subject to a
Right of First Refusal by the District.
Under the revised contracts, closing on
the 26,800 acres would take place in Octo-
ber 2010.
In identifying the 26,800 acres for this ac-
quisition, the District evaluated science and
engineering factors as well as its existing re-
quirements and mandates, all of which drive
the agency's restoration and water quality
improvement efforts. This acquisition, to-
gether with the Talisman lands, would give
the District access to more than 50,000 acres
of land south of Lake Okeechobee needed
for project construction that will bring
meaningful water quality and environmen-
tal improvements to the Everglades.
Today's action by the SFWMD Govern-


ing Board is the culmination of more than
two years of work since Governor Charlie
Crist first announced on June 24, 2008, that
the District would begin negotiations with
the U.S. Sugar Corporation to acquire land
south of Lake Okeechobee for Everglades
restoration.
The downsized, more affordable acqui-
sition recognizes that economic conditions
have changed dramatically since the original
announcement and a subsequent revised
agreement approved by the Governing
Board in May 2009. The District's property
tax revenues have declined by nearly $150
million, or 30 percent, since 2008.

Bug Nursery controls invasive plants


Agency makes use of
biological controls to
manage invasive plants

By Randy Smith
South Florida Water Management District
Babies in this nursery may not be cute
and cuddly, but they will grow up to be
among South Florida 's important environ-
mental defenders.
The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) and the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers recently signed a Project Part-
nership Agreement to build a science facility
to raise insects for use as biological controls.
These insects and other biological controls
are used to manage the spread of invasive
exotic plant species such as melaleuca,
Lygodium and Brazilian pepper.
"While invasive snakes may receive head-
line attention, exotic plant species are also
extremely damaging and continue to invade
South Florida 's ecosystems," said Ken Am-
mon, P.E., SFWMD Deputy Executive Direc-
tor Everglades Restoration and Capital Proj-
ects. "Developing and deploying thoroughly
researched biological controls are among
our best and most environmentally friendly
defenses. The work conducted at this facility
will significantly help in our efforts to protect
and restore the Everglades ."
A Bugged Nursery
The project consists of a 2,700-square-
foot annex to the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Agricultural Research Service (USDA-
ARS) Invasive Plant Research Laboratory in
Davie Insects and other biological controls
raised there will already have completed an
exhaustive quarantine testing program
administered by the ARS to demonstrate
they only target specific exotic plants.
For at least the next 24 years, the annex
is expected to raise colonies of these bio-
logical controls that can help protect South
Florida's ecosystems and the Everglades .
The Florida Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP), in cooperation with the
District, USDA and the University of Florida
, has facilitated the agreements necessary to
ensure that the project on state-owned land
can proceed as scheduled.
Construction of the facility is scheduled
to be completed by the U.S. Army Corps in
early 2012 using an investment of $1.75 mil-
lion in federal stimulus funding under the
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act
of 2009. The SFWMD and the Corps will pro-
vide operations and maintenance funding.
Researchers at the USDA will strategically
release and monitor the biological controls
where they will be most effective as part of
an integrated pest management strategy.
Background: The Invaders
Non-native plants stress the natural envi-
ronment by crowding out native vegetation,
which a diverse array of wildlife depend on
for food and habitat. Invasive plants can also
clog flood control canals and structures,
impede waterway navigation and impact
recreation and other facets of the Florida
economy.
Since first making its way to Florida in the

Old World climbing fern.

late 1960s, Old World climbing fern (Lygo-
dium microphyllum) and Japanese climb-
ing fern (L. japonicum) have become two of
the most invasive exotic plants in the state.
These climbing ferns grow quickly in South
Florida without the natural pests and regu-
latory factors that keep the ferns in check
in their native areas of Australia and Asia .
The ferns cover and shade out native plants,
eventually killing them.
Brazilian pepper (Schinus terebinthifo-
lius) is a South American shrub first intro-
duced into Florida as an ornamental plant
in the 19th century. Today, it is considered
one of the most noxious, widespread weeds
in the state, infesting almost 1 million acres
in South Florida alone. The peppers readily
invade everything from fallow farmland to
hardwood hammocks and mangrove for-
ests.
SFWMD Invests in Biocontrols
and Science
The new rearing facility is the latest in-
vestment in biological controls by the SFW-
MD. The District has devoted approximately
$20 million in each of the past five years to
remove the most threatening invasive spe-
cies, such as melaleuca, Old World climbing
fern, Brazilian pepper and water hyacinth.
In Fiscal Year 2009 alone, the District treated
approximately 94,000 acres to combat mela-
leuca, torpedo grass, the climbing fern and
other offenders.
Melaleuca remains an example of the
District's success in managing exotics.
Once covering hundreds of thousands of
acres, this species now is only occasionally
spotted on District-managed lands. What
seemed to be an insurmountable invasive
species now is being successfully managed
through sustained interagency commitment.
Biological controls are an important part of
this success. The combined effect of three
established insect species is putting signifi-
cant pressure on melaleuca's ability to dom-
inate Florida's native plant communities.
The District-led melaleuca management
program is nearly two decades old, and re-
source management agencies estimate this
program has cost approximately $40 million
to date. Florida's melaleuca management
program is a model for invasive species
management nationally.

Continued From Page 1
to a 'B' this year. These were: Eastside El-
ementary, Edward A. Upthegrove El-
ementary and LaBelle Elementary.

Middle:
Clewiston Middle School's grade has
not been released and is listed as pending
because, according to Jodi Bell, Hendry
County Schools' director of federal pro-
grams, the school had been "improperly
coded by the Department of Education as
a high school." An appeal has been made
for a quicker review of the grade. Last year
Clewiston Middle was a 'C' school, and ac-
cording to Ms. Bell it is on track to remain a
'C' school this year again. "Their point total
is only eight points from the total number of
points needed for a grade of 'B,'" said Ms.
Bell.
LaBelle Middle School saw a slight
drop from its 'B' grade last year to its 'C'
grade this year.

High School:
All high school results are being held un-
til November, when it is expected they will
be released. Last year, LaBelle High was a
'D' school.
Rather than dwell on the subject of
whether or not the tests were graded fairly
or accurately, Mr. Gordon prefers to use the
results to help the schools improve further.
"We want to take that information and


definitely continue to work on our reading,
the lower quartile, and across the board."
One area where the district is very happy
to see an upward trend is at Clewiston High --
a school which during the 2008-2009 school
year received an 'F' grade. Early information
points to the likelihood that the school's let-
ter grade will certainly improve.
Mr. Swaggerty recognizes the work of
Janice Lee, principal, her staff, and the team
of specialists that provided state oversight of
the turnaround at the school.
The teams provided professional devel-
opment help, and performed evaluative
walk-throughs with teachers and staff. At
times only a couple of specialists were on-
site at the high school. Sometimes the en-
tire team would come to Clewiston to work
with staff.
Of particular note is the tremendous jump
the school made in its percentage of criteria
satisfied under the Federal No Child Left Be-
hind Act. Last year's percentage was 69 in
the areas of writing, math and reading, with
the district and the school team working
to achieve at least an 80 percentage score.
Results released this year show the school
achieving 92 percent of the criteria.
Last year 61 percent of students met state
standards in writing, with the school not
meeting criteria in this area, compared to
this year's 77 percent.
"We're extremely happy with that," the
assistant superintendent said. "It just goes to
show you the work that was done."
Specialists are expected to continue
working at the school, but they will assume
a diminished role in light of the results. Giv-
en the gains made, officials are hoping for
a better score when high school results are
released in November.
