The Ministerial Medical Aid Fund, or simply, “The Dr. Luke Fund,” helps cover the cost of prescription medication and small medical devices, such as blood pressure monitors, scales and breathing machines, for patients of Hendry Regional Medical Center (HRMC) who do not qualify for assistance from other organizations. “The Ministerial Association was told by staff at the hospital that some people, when they are released, don’t have a way to save on medication,” said Pastor Alan Koch, of Faith Lutheran Church in Clewiston.

But when the bell rings and the class lls up, those students get to work checking water temperature, cleaning tanks and caring for the numerous tilapia fry swimming in the many tanks in the back of the classroom. The 2013/14 school year marked the rst-ever aquaculture class offered by Mr. Mike Kemp and Clewiston High School (CHS). Kemp has been a marine biology teacher for 14 years at CHS, and drew from his previous experience owning pet stores and selling aquariums when he propositioned CHS Principal George Duckstein about starting an aquaculture class for the rst time. Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms, such as sh, crustaceans, mollusks and aquatic plants. It is also a fast-growing industry in the United States and around the world, and offers CHS students a valuable lesson that can translate easily into the real world. “Almost 50 percent of the world relies on sh for their main source of 36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $0 security deposit.

COMMUNITY NEWS AND INFORMATION CLEWISTON HIGH SCHOOLFutureMakers is the Southwest Florida Community Foundation’s (SWFLCF) rst regional call to action, evolving from its 3D Initiative -Data, Dialogue and Decisions -which began last year. The collective force of the ve-county 3D Initiative team is aimed at igniting action and results, engaging local donors and creating funding opportunities from outside the Southwest Florida area. The 3D Initiative team determined that the widening educational gap – the difference between the number of students going on to college or other post-secondary programs and the number of educated workers needed – is a critically important issue that could be addressed and impacted through a regional strategy. A team of more than a dozen stakeholders from SWFLCF, the Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, the Education Foundation of Collier County Champions For Learning, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sun Coast make up the FutureMakers coalition, focusing on strengthening Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Glades and Hendry counties. In addition to launching GradApp (a mobile app helping students explore careers, schools and nancial aid), FutureMakers is taking an active role in aiding high school seniors through one-on-one and group mentoring, FAFSA workshops, nancial aid application support and career coaching. As seniors in participating area high schools completed the process, they were entered in a drawing to win an iPad at each school. Andrea Scott won the iPad at Clewiston High School; she plans to attend Santa Fe State College in the fall, where she then plans to apply for medical school at the University of Florida to study radiology or speech therapy.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 4 Memorial Day: More than RememberingBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI spent time looking up my family genealogy by looking through archives and records from where my ancestors lived. I also spoke with people who hailed from those regions and got some insights into why things were done the way they were and how those things turned out. Some of my ancestors came from large farming families. After a few generations, the farms could only be subdivided so many times among the children and so the farms were left to the child who looked like he might be the best farmer. The others, well they wound up in the “new world!” Apparently, I’m here because some of my ancestors didn’t look like they would make good farmers! In my studies of family history, I learn who I am and what forces have shaped my life. In envisioning those people who were my ancestors, I came to understand myself a lot better. Our Scriptures include a great deal of genealogical information. Matthew takes time to begin his gospel with the genealogy of “Jesus Christ, the son of David, the Son of Abraham (Matthew 1:116). Mark thinks it’s important to know about Isaiah’s prediction and John’s forerunning of Jesus’ ministry (Mark 1:1-8). Luke gives the genealogy of Jesus (3:21-37) and John goes all the way back to the rst moments of creation to tell about the coming of “the word made esh” (John 1:114). In other words, knowing how we got here lets us know who we are. This Memorial Day weekend was more than just a holiday; it had to do with who we are as a people. By honoring those who went before us, and who sacri ced their lives, or parts of it, we learn more about ourselves. I had the privilege of sitting with the B-17 and B-24 yers who came through Clewiston last weekend and who fought in World War II, talking about their missions, their fears, their reactions, the events that shaped them and realizing that this was one of the most creative, most inventive, most uni ed times in our history. One of them said that was probably the greatest time in the history of the world; no doubt it was in many ways. I re ected on what I knew about my own family; their participation in this great event and their contributions to the nation. I can only stand back with the greatest of respect as I think about those persons and those moments who have made me who I am and who have been with me in my formation. This Memorial Day, I hoped to re ect once more -not only in thanksgiving for what has gone by, but in the part of those persons in making me who I am. In the same way that the great patriarchs of the Bible have shaped me, so too have those in our national past who have been responsible for providing us with a witness of courage, a testimony of belief in our values, a dedication to our society and what makes us a nation. As I see the imprints of others who have gone before in my life, I realize Memorial Day is more than remembering; it is a recollection once more of who we are as a people and who we are destined to be. That to me is far more than simply being thankful; it is an awareness of what those who have laid down their lives have imprinted on us all. Those who were inspired to write the Holy Scriptures got it right. The genealogies, the origins were to mark those who follow; and thanks be to God for their imprints left on us. We have much to be thankful for as a people, as a nation: the creativity, the genius, the inventiveness, the richness, the sacri ce of those who gave their lives in the formation of this nation, who did so so that we might be the people God intended us to be. May we be more than appreciative; may our self-understanding carry us forward as we recall their greatest of gifts to us. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@ saintmartins-clewiston.org.First Methodist Time ChangeCLEWISTON — First United Methodist Church has changed their Sunday worship to one combined worship service at 10 a.m. each Sunday.

Obituaries 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health advises residents and visitors to be aware of chikungunya fever, a viral mosquito-borne disease that has made its way to the Caribbean countries from Africa, Asia and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Paci c. Travelers to these countries could carry the virus back to the United States and infect local mosquito populations. “With a large number of people traveling to and from the Caribbean in Florida, we have been monitoring for possible imported cases,” said Dr. Carina Blackmore, state public health veterinarian and deputy state epidemiologist. “We encourage all Floridians to practice the drain and cover method to minimize mosquito exposure.” Mosquitoes can transmit different viruses, including chikungunya, West Nile and Eastern equine encephalomyelitis. Chikungunya, like dengue, can be transmitted from an infected human to an Aedes mosquito, which in turn can bite another human and pass along the disease. Aedes mosquitoes are day biters which can lay eggs in very small water containers. Early detection of the symptoms and preventing mosquitoes from biting will help prevent the disease from spreading in the United States. During times of increased mosquito activity, local mosquito control districts will treat accordingly to ensure the safety of communities. The Florida Department of Health has received three reports of imported cases of chikungunya fever to Florida from travelers who recently traveled to the Caribbean. One case is a 30-year-old woman in Miami-Dade County, the second case is a 29-year-old woman from Broward County, and the third case is a 44-year-old woman in Hillsborough County. Symptoms of chikungunya usually begin three to seven days after being bitten by an infected mosquito and can include fever and severe joint pains, often in hands and feet. Other symptoms can include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling or rash. Chikungunya fever does not often result in death, but some individuals may experience persistent joint pain. There is currently no vaccine or medication to prevent chikungunya fever. If you feel that you may have contracted chikungunya, see your health care provider. People at increased risk for severe disease include newborns exposed during delivery, older adults (over 65 years) and people with medical conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes or heart disease. A person infected with chikungunya should stay indoors as much as possible until symptoms subside to prevent further transmission. To minimize exposure to mosquitoes, practice the drain and cover method. Drain water from garbage cans, house gutters, pool covers, coolers, toys, ower pots or any other containers where sprinkler or rain water has collected, and discard any items that may collect water. Clean bird baths and pet water bowls twice a week. If you must be outside when mosquitoes are active, cover up. Wear shoes, socks, long pants and long sleeves. You may also apply mosquito repellent to bare skin and clothing. Always use repellents according to the label. Repellents with DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535 are effective. Use mosquito netting to protect children younger than two months. To learn more about the chikungunya virus, please visit www. oridahealth.gov/diseases-andconditions/mosquito-borne-diseases/chikungunya.html. Florida Department of Health Raises Awareness of Chikungunya Fever WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE TRAVELING TO AND FROM THE CARIBBEAN IN FLORIDA, WE HAVE BEEN MONITORING FOR POSSIBLE IMPORTED CASES... WE ENCOURAGE ALL FLORIDIANS TO PRACTICE THE DRAIN AND COVER METHOD TO MINIMIZE MOSQUITO EXPOSURE.DR. CARINA BLACKMORE Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 0.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.61/g Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has increased 1 cent per gallon in the last week to $3.63/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 15.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 11.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 2.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 2.1 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “The start to the summer driving season came with little fanfare,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The national average has remained virtually unchanged for four days straight, and prices over Memorial Day weekend nationally ended up slightly under 2013’s levels. Between now and mid-June we should see additional relief at the pump, and by the end of June, the national average could decline another 10 cents per gallon from where it currently stands. We’re hopeful that hurricane season will make little impact, as several key organizations have said their forecasts call for fewer than average storms, which would certainly help motorists avoid seeing late summer price spikes,” DeHaan said. Gas Price Update WE’RE HOPEFUL THAT HURRICANE SEASON WILL MAKE LITTLE IMPACT, AS SEVERAL KEY ORGANIZATIONS HAVE SAID THEIR FORECASTS CALL FOR FEWER THAN AVERAGE STORMS...ANALYST PATRICK DEHAAN I HOPE YOU HAVE LOST YOUR GOOD LOOKS, FOR WHILE THEY LAST ANY FOOL CAN ADORE YOU, AND THE ADORATION OF FOOLS IS BAD FOR THE SOUL.

On Sunday, May 11, a group of fraternity men arrived in Clewiston as a stop on the journey of their lives. The team arrived at Clewiston High School, which has sponsored the Gear Up Florida team for 15 years, at 3:30 p.m. This group of 28 cyclists and nine crew members were participating in Push America’s Gear Up Florida, an 800-mile cycling event across the state of Florida. From Miami to Tallahassee, these men were cycling to raise funds and awareness for people with disabilities. The Gear Up Florida team consisted of men from across the country who are members of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. The team cycled an average of 75 miles per day ending at the State Capitol on May 24. Every cyclist commits to raising a minimum of $2,500 on behalf of people with disabilities in hopes to enhance their quality of life. Push America’s mission is to build leaders of tomorrow by serving people with disabilities today. Push America organizes Gear Up Florida each May, along with other summer events, in order to promote and raise funds. It is the national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity who founded the organization in 1977 to commit themselves to enhancing the lives of people with disabilities. Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 6 Fraternity Men Cycle Across State to Help People with DisabilitiesPush America’s mission is to build leaders of tomorrow by serving people with disabilities today BY AMANDA M. PACHECO, RN HRMCSummer has arrived! Summer is a time when children, on vacation from school, wear their swimsuits all day and enjoy lots of water play. Many fond memories are made on those hot summer days, but for some parents, those hot summer days can turn into nightmares. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), about ten people die from an unintentional drowning each day. The CDC also states that children ages one to four have the highest rates of drowning. Often, when people envision someone drowning, you picture what they have seen on TV: a victim screaming and thrashing around while waving their arms. But the truth is, when someone is drowning they are normally quiet and silently sink below the water. The reason for this is due to how the human body works. When the body is in distress, it is wired to utilize priority functions, such as breathing. Speech is considered a secondary function and is not a priority. And while drowning, the victim usually doesn’t have enough time above water to inhale oxygen and call out for help. The victim is also unable to wave their arms for help because the body is unable to perform voluntary movements while drowning. There is nothing more painful for a parent than to hold her child’s lifeless body in her arms, knowing there is nothing she can do to save them. Prevention is the only way to rid disability and death due to drowning. When swimming, always closely supervise children. This means putting the cell phones down, especially with smaller children. Empty all buckets, containers and small pools inside and outside of the home. Have the child participate in swimming lessons to strengthen their swimming abilities. If there is a pool at home, make sure it is secure with a fence and a lock even if no children live at the home. The CDC also states that parents should not allow children to hyperventilate themselves before going underwater to hold their breath for long periods of time, due to the possibility of the child having a “shallow water blackout” and then drowning. Drowning can be prevented with these interventions. Make an effort to use them and incorporate them to continue to make fun summer memories. Summer Memories THERE IS NOTHING MORE PAINFUL FOR A PARENT THAN TO HOLD HER CHILD’S LIFELESS BODY IN HER ARMS, KNOWING THERE IS NOTHING SHE CAN DO TO SAVE THEM. PREVENTION IS THE ONLY WAY TO RID DISABILITY AND DEATH DUE TO DROWNING.AMANDA M. PACHECO

In South America, this bird occurs wildly east of the Andes and west of the Equator. It is named for its limping-like ight, characterized by its dangling legs and jerky wing beats. A group of limpkins is known as a "hobbling" of Limpkins. The Limpkin is a large, dark brown bird, whose feathers on the head, neck, wings and much of the back and underparts are marked with white, making its body look streaked; its head and neck are light gray. The Limpkin has long, dark-gray legs and a long neck. It has a long, heavy down-curved, yellowish bill with a dark tip. The closed bill has a gap just before the tip that makes it work like tweezers, which the limpkin uses to extract snails out of their shells. Limpkin, locally known as the "wailing bird" or crying bird," are easier to hear than to see. Their most common call is a loud, wild wail or scream which is most often heard at night, dawn or dusk. It has been used for jungle sound effects in Tarzan lms and for the hippogriff in the lm "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban." Other calls include wooden clicking, clucks or a piercing "bihk, bihk." Limpkin can often be seen sitting on snags or foraging near the water's edge. They are being reported in wetland areas, ditches and ponds in inland Florida. They almost exclusively eat apple snails, but will eat other aquatic snails and bivalves that they nd by sight or touch. Other less important prey include insects, frogs, lizards, crustaceans and worms. In southern Florida, most nesting occurs from early February through May in central and northern Florida from late February through June. They often raise two broods of young during the breeding season. Nests may be built on the ground, on dense oating vegetation, in bushes or at any height in trees. A clutch will have three to eight eggs which can be gray-white to deep olive. Both parents incubate the eggs during the day, but only the female remains with the eggs at night. The young, who hatch at about 27 days, are covered with down and are capable of walking, running and swimming. Both parents feed the chicks who leave their parents at about 16 weeks.InformationReports of breeding birds in inland Florida are needed for the Breeding Bird Atlas II surveys. This survey is conducted every 25 years and ends in 2016. Please send or phone your reports or photos of breeding birds, including Limpkins, to Margaret England.

Mr. Sergo’s physics class recorded time trials for a pedal car equipped with a radar detector. The class, consisting of seniors Justin Anderson, Naslie Goette, Jessica Hightower, Eric Munoz, Stephania Reid and junior Jacob Rudd, set up a 20-meter course and created a “speed trap ” for the pedal car. The students measured time in order to calculate top velocity, acceleration and force. Deputy A.J. Maynard, of the Hendry County Sheriff’s Department, operated the radar located inside his squad car to register top velocities. The top honors for the fastest velocities went to Jose Rivera and Justin Anderson, who reached a top velocity of 13 miles per hour or, for those science students out there, 5.8 meters per second.

Though only four weeks old, the fund has already helped one patient from HRMC receive his prescription medication. “We’re hoping to build it up,” said Pastor Koch, who will be giving a presentation at the Clewiston Rotary Club on June 16 to raise awareness of the fund, and to get area businesses interested in the cause. Residents can contribute to the fund, as well, by mailing checks made payable to the Ministerial Medical Aid Fund to Faith Lutheran Church, 810 Cedar Street, Clewiston.

The Foundation’s donation of $20,000 will pay for the cost of the Academy, with enough left over to help bring services to outlying areas of the county, including Montura and Pioneer. “I wrote to [the Foundation] for a grant to help with the Academy and they gave almost twice as much as I asked for, with the intention of bringing this and other programs to outlying areas, like Montura,” said Barrett. The Microsoft IT Academy will allow residents to become certi ed in the Microsoft Of ce Suite, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Publisher, giving them a competitive edge on their resumes and making them more marketable to employers. “The certi cation will provide the skills necessary to be pro cient in Microsoft’s offerings,” said Barrett. “Then people can proudly put on their resumes that they are Microsoft certi ed. It makes them more marketable.” Barrett said the program targets unemployed and underemployed residents of Hendry County, but anyone can participate in the class. There may be a small fee associated with the class, however, Barrett said the cost will be based on participants’ incomes. Though all three Hendry County libraries, including Clewiston, Harlem and LaBelle, will be equipped with the Microsoft Academy training programs, which residents can use to practice for their certi cation exam, only the Clewiston library will conduct the actual certi cation class. The certi cation class will be taught by certi ed instructors in the Clewiston library’s new computer lab. Barrett said she hopes the classes will begin in August, but residents can start signing up today by calling the Clewiston library. As for those residents in the outlying areas, Barrett said she is currently working on making programs more accessible, despite the geographical distance. For the Microsoft IT Academy, Barrett is hoping to set up a bus system between Montura and Clewiston to transport participants back and forth, free of charge. In the future, Barrett said she has big plans that she hopes will come to fruition for those distant residents. “I would love to get a Book Mobile!” said Barrett, whose eyes lit at the thought of a portable library. The Book Mobile, she said, would not just deliver books on four wheels. Barrett envisions a mobile classroom, equipped with computers and Internet, so she can bring the classes and programs that available at the three libraries to other areas of the county. Though Barrett’s Book Mobile is, as of now, a dream far off in the distance, the things she has already accomplished at the library are truly amazing, including one of her most recent accomplishments: Clewiston library’s new computer lab. “It is a dream come true. I want that lab to be lled constantly. Whatever level, be it children or adults, I don’t want to have an idle lab. It’s here for the people,” said Barrett. “I believe the Lord smiled on us to allow us to provide this to the people of Hendry County.” For more information about the Microsoft IT Academy, or to sign up for the certi cation class, please contact the Clewiston library at 863-9831493. ACADEMYContinued From Page 1 Clewiston mother and special needs activist, Stephanie Schneider Busin, spoke at the May 13 Hendry County School Board meeting about the challenges students and families affected by autism face in Hendry County. Mrs. Busin cited the new autism prevalence rate released in March by the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) Autism and Developmental Monitoring Program, as one child in 68 are being identi ed as having an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In an effort to illustrate that the needs in Hendry County are likely to be greater than what’s on paper, Mrs. Busin stated, “In a district of 7,000 students, like Hendry County, if we’re on par with this statistic, we should statistically have close to 103 students identi ed. We currently have 40, up from 27 at this time last year.” “While it is solely up to a parent or guardian to seek a referral for diagnosis for a child, not so coincidentally, CDC statistics indicate children who are impoverished, are females, or are minorities are less likely to receive a diagnosis and intervention services. Considering an approximate annual median household income of $36,000 and our diverse socio-economic demographics, these are strong factors behind our numbers in Hendry County,” she continued. “The lack of medical and therapeutic resources are also a major concern. There is currently no doctor in Hendry County who diagnoses or treats autism spectrum disorders and there are no certi ed private providers of speech, occupational or behavioral therapy services for children with ASD. The treatments and services available on the coast are often out of reach, both nancially and geographically, for the majority of our families,” said Busin. Mrs. Busin expressed to the school board that the speech and occupational therapy services the school district provides are, in many circumstances, the only help and intervention many of these students will ever receive and urged the school board to support enhanced services, like social skills lessons provided under speech and language services. She spoke of the need for cost effective programs, like peer-to-peer mentoring in the middle and high schools. These programs pair autism spectrum disorder students with nonASD peers who accompany them to class and provide additional academic and social support, improving their academic performance and decreasing instances of bullying due to social and behavioral challenges inherent to autism spectrum disorder. “I stand before you today asking for your support in getting these children the help they need and to offer support to you. I’ve been fortunate over the past three years to have had overwhelming support from the community in my quest to bring autism awareness and resources to Hendry County through autism awareness t-shirt sales. Funds raised in the past have purchased books for families and schools, provided trainings and training resources to Hendry County teachers,” said Busin. This year, Busin wanted to put funds directly into teachers’ hands, giving them the ability to provide classroom resources for their students with autism, ass trainings can only go so far without tangible resources to work with. It is with great love and gratitude to the folks who purchased autism awareness shirts this year that Busin was able to present a $3,000 check to the Hendry County Public School Foundation in memory of one of Hendry County’s great champions of children, Ray Clinard, to be used for classroom mini-grants for teachers with autistic students.

SCHOOL BRIEFS protein," said Kemp. "Aquaculture is a way to provide protein to a growing population. Economically, it's cheaper to raise sh than to catch them." Kemp is right. According to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), approximately three billion people in the world rely on both wild-caught and farmed seafood as their primary source of protein. With the world's oceans being dramatically over shed -85 percent of marine sh stocks are either fully exploited or over shed, according to WWF -aquaculture has become an increasingly popular method of raising those same sh species in a controlled environment that is economically cheaper and environmentally more sustainable than catching sh in the wild. It is the various elements of aquaculture that make it so appealing to teach in the classroom, especially to older students who will be moving on to either higher education or the work force upon graduation. "The big thing this year was to generate interest," said Kemp. A few of his seniors have already told him that the class sparked an interest, and in a couple years, students will be able to get certi ed in aquaculture before leaving high school. "The program will give students a vocational certi cate specializing in aquaculture and agriculture," said Kemp, which will open access to certain jobs in the aquaculture eld for those students upon graduation. The certi cation aspect will be available for students in the 2016/17 school year, said Kemp. Even for those students who are not interested in a career in the aquaculture eld, the class provides a hands-on learning experience that covers everything from science and math to business and economics. "The kids like it because it's a lot of hands-on activity. I think kids learn better when you allow them to do that sort of thing," said Kemp. The course also applies the Common Core Standards and teaches across the curriculum, as students use mathematics to calculate, for example, how much food to feed the sh each day, by nding the average weight of a sample of sh, and Language Arts in their research process. Business and economics are also taught during the course, as students must propose a business plan to take the sh from tank to market. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the course are the tanks themselves. Kemp said they began with a few small aquariums, which house the juvenile sh, and began acquiring larger tanks when the sh grew too big for the aquariums. Those bigger tanks are housed in the high school's green house and most of the tanks can hold up to 400 gallons of water each. The tanks are hooked up to makeshift lters, which Kemp and the students built themselves. All of the tanks were donated to the school, and three of them are actually concrete caskets painted to retain water. Kemp also has plans to incorporate hydroponics with the aquaculture -a development called aquaponics -and has started collecting 150-gallon drums to convert into aquaponic tanks. The sh are raised on the bottom in a tank, and the water is circulated to the top where hydroponic plants, such as tomatoes, strawberries and leaf lettuces, are grown, creating a selfsuf cient system. "I never expected to have all of this," said Kemp. Looking around at the number of sh swimming in the gigantic tanks and seeing the parts lying in the corner, waiting for its future intended use, it's a wonder how Kemp and the students were able to accomplish so much in only one school year. And the program will only continue to grow, with approximately 50 students signed up to take the class -which will be taught as a separate course, instead of intertwined with the Marine Biology II class. Kemp also has visions for the future, including consolidating all the sh into two giant poollike tanks, and raising the sh's food to minimize overhead and teach students about the complete life cycle. The aquaculture course's future depends not only on student participation, but also on donations to make it possible to purchase the necessary equipment. Anyone interested in donating to Clewiston High School's aquaculture endeavors should contact Mike Kemp at 863-983-1520.

SUMMARY: The District is re-initiating rule development to amend its consumptive use permitting and water supply related program rules as part of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection’s statewide effort (referred to as CUPcon) to improve consistency in the consumptive use permitting programs implemented by the water management districts (WMDs). The CUPcon goals include: 1) making the consumptive use permitting program less confusing for applicants; 2) treating applicants equitably statewide; 3) providing consistent protection of the environment; 4) streamlining the process; and 5) incentivizing behavior that protects water resources. This re-initiation will cure discrepancies between the versions of rules that were published on December 10, 2013, and acted on by the Governing Board on February 13, 2014, as well as correct some inadvertent text inaccuracies. There are no substantive changes as adopted by the Governing Board in February 2014. The South Florida Water Management District (District) Governing Board has authorized publication of a Notice of Proposed Rule to amend Chapters 40E-1, 40E-2, and the incorporated “Basis of Review for Water Use Permit Applications within the South Florida Water Management District”, which will be reorganized and renamed “Applicant’s Handbook for Water Use Permit Applications within the South Florida Water Management District.” The relevant portions of Chapter 40E-20, F.A.C., which govern general water use permits will be transferred to Chapter 40E-2, F.A.C., and Chapter 40E-20, F.A.C., will be repealed. Non-substantive amendments to Chapters 40E-3, 40E-5, 40E-8, 40E-10, and 40E-24, F.A.C., are also proposed to be consistent with this statewide effort.

Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to the issuance of any Title V air operation permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the permit that were raised with reasonable speci city during the 30day public comment period provided in the Public Notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions led with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be led with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington, D.C. 20460.

UF/IFAS HENDRY COUNTY EXTENSIONThis year, America celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Extension Service and recognizes that the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners passed a resolution acknowledging the 100 Year Anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914 and UF/IFAS Extension. This resolution is similar to one adopted by Governor Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet in February. With a 100-year history, it is easy to forget how the U.S. Extension Service got to where it is today. On July 2, 1862, President Abraham Lincoln signed the Morrill Act into law, creating a national network of colleges and universities that were meant to serve the higher education needs of farmers and laborers across the nation. The uniquely American aspect of the Morrill Act was the direct investment of resources into the creation of agricultural colleges and universities by grants from the U.S. government. These grants came in the form of 10,000 acres of publicly owned federal land that was turned over to the state government, which the state in turn could use to house the university, to sell for capital to use in building the university, or both. From that unique concept came the common name for this act and the institutions it helped to support: the Land Grant Act and land-grant colleges and universities. In most states, the land-grant college or agricultural college is the university of that state, for example, the University of Florida. A second law, the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, established the Cooperative Extension Service, a state-by-state national network of land-grant, public universities, whose educators extend research-based knowledge to the people. The brain child of Senator Hoke Smith, of Georgia, and Congressman Asbury Francis Lever, the Smith-Lever Act was signed by President Woodrow Wilson on May 8, 1914, enacting legislation that extended the land-grant university concept beyond university campuses to reach into communities across the United States. That legislation created the Cooperative Extension System (CES) as a partnership between the federal, state and county governments. That legislation continues today as the key authorization legislation for the work of the Cooperative Extension System. The act’s stated purpose was “to aid in diffusing among the people of the United States useful and practical information on subjects relating to agriculture, home economics, and rural energy, and to encourage the application of the same, there may be continued or inaugurated in connection with the college or colleges in each State, Territory, or possession.” The Morrill and Smith-Lever Acts was also meant to foster economic development by stimulating the transfer of knowledge from research into practice on farms, in factories and in families (agriculture, 4-H and youth, family, food and health, business, community, lawn and garden, natural resources, coastal issues and many other related subjects). The Smith-Lever Act created a nation-wide extension system and directed the nation’s landgrant universities to oversee its work. This law resulted in an extension of ce in virtually every county in the United States. In the age before the Internet, this was a means of disseminating information from universities to workshops, classes and even homes and businesses. So the Cooperative Extension System opened of ces in local communities with employees who would gather information from university professors, and then disseminate that information to local communities. A hundred years ago, when extension was founded, one-third of the nation’s population was involved in agriculture. Today, about onepercent of the population feeds the entire nation. In fact, each American farmer now produces enough food to feeds 155 other people. Some people believe that extension is not as important as it once was, given that the population has moved out of rural areas and into cities. Although only one percent of the population are farmers and ranchers, agricultural-related industries involved in manufacture, distribution, trucking, wholesale and retail employ over 20 percent of all Americans. America needs extension today more than ever, because its society is growing not only in size, but also in the nature and complexity of its problems. The recent and painful lessons of natural disasters, the threats of man-made catastrophes, of exotic diseases, population growth and the fragility of the technological systems on which society relies leaves reason for concern. Extension continues to have a role in supporting agriculture, even as that agriculture moves into new techniques and new landscapes. Extension’s new role in supporting local food and bio-fuels is a good example. Extension programs also play an increasing role helping farmers and ranchers negotiate the plethora of new regulations impacting their businesses, and they have offered education programs in nutrition and health among urban communities. Extension is adapting and will have to adapt to a world that has different cultural demographics, different agricultural structures and more ubiquitous technology, compared to when cooperative extension was founded in 1914. For 100 years, the Smith-Lever Act has stimulated innovative research and vital educational programs for adults and youth through progressive information delivery systems that have improved lives and shaped a nation. The Cooperative Extension Service allows all citizens to bene t from the knowledge of the nation’s landgrant universities. Local extension of ces remain the front door to the nation’s land-grant universities located in virtually every county in the nation. UF/IFAS Extension has helped millions of Floridians by tapping the latest information from the research engines of both the University of Florida and Florida A&M University. For anyone who has learned how to produce crops or raise livestock more ef ciently, learned how to choose healthier foods, conserve and protect drinking water and natural resources, save money, grow his own vegetables, been to a 4-H camp or received help on a home landscaping problem, there is a good chance are he was helped by extension! The extension agents, staff and volunteers of the UF/IFAS Hendry County Extension Of ce are proud of our accomplishments as we re ect on this 100th anniversary. We are proud of our agricultural roots and we look to the future. This year we celebrate the past, present and future of extending knowledge and changing lives for the citizens of Hendry County and the state of Florida. We remain dedicated to nding solutions to the challenges we will face over the next 100 years and look forward to sharing them to make life healthier, happier and more prosperous for all. Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 29, 2014 14 100th Anniversary of the U.S. Extension ServiceA HUNDRED YEARS AGO, WHEN EXTENSION WAS FOUNDED, ONE-THIRD OF THE NATION’S POPULATION WAS INVOLVED IN AGRICULTURE. TODAY, ABOUT ONE-PERCENT OF THE POPULATION FEEDS THE ENTIRE NATION. IN FACT, EACH AMERICAN FARMER NOW PRODUCES ENOUGH FOOD TO FEEDS 155 OTHER PEOPLE.

South Florida’s water levels are at seasonally normal levels heading into the 2014 wet season that is forecasted to produce near to slightly below-average precipitation, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the National Weather Service reported at a joint brie ng earlier this month. “A combination of timely rainfall and proactive water management during the dry season allowed current water levels to be at a bene cial level for 7.9 million residents and the environment,” said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Nevertheless, we continually evaluate conditions because Florida has unexpected weather extremes that can quickly change water conditions across large areas.” Released on May 20, the National Weather Service’s 2014 wet season forecast calls for:  A late start to the rainy season (median start is May 20 on the southeast coast and May 27 in the interior and west coast.)  Near to slightly below-average precipitation, with June potentially being the wettest month relative to normal  Above-normal temperatures -one to two degrees Fahrenheit -more noticeable in the overnight/early morning  El Nio to develop during the summer, which typically places South Florida in a transition zone between Caribbean dryness and slightly more precipitation across the southeast U.S. — this was a factor in developing the near to slightly below-average wet season forecast Current Conditions South Florida has seen 15.30 inches of rain to date this dry season, which is 94 percent of average, or a de cit of 1.05 inches. Well-timed rainfall events in key locations during this time period stabilized regional water supplies during the driest portions of the dry season. In recent weeks, dry days have helped to position water levels at their regulation schedules for adequate water supply while making room in storage areas, such as the water conservation areas and lakes for summer rains as South Florida enters the hurricane season on June 1. The regulation schedules are federally authorized operating plans designed to set water levels, based on a host of factors, to help balance competing demands on a resource, such as a lake or reservoir. One of the goals is to achieve the lowest desirable water levels going into the hurricane/wet season. The hurricane season of cially ends on Nov. 30. Lake Okeechobee stood at 12.79 feet NGVD on May 20, which is 0.45 feet below its historic average for this time of year. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which is responsible for managing the lake’s levels, has been making regulatory releases to the Caloosahatchee River to help meet the lake’s established regulation schedule. It is too early to predict how the wet season will impact lake management during the coming months. During the past 16 years, the dry period of November through April produced above-average rainfall twice and near normal rainfall ve times, with the rest being below average. South Florida Wet Season Facts  On average, South Florida’s wet season begins around May 20 and ends around October 13, lasting for about 21 weeks.  Typically, about two-thirds of annual rains fall during the wet season, or approximately 35 inches out of 52 inches.  Since 1932, virtually all wet seasons have produced two to four feet of rainfall.  June is usually South Florida’s wettest month.  The wet season has three general phases: Memorial Day weekend through July 4 weekend, which are typically the wettest six weeks of the year; early July through mid-August, which are hotter and often drier; and late August through October, which are characterized by highly variable rainfall mainly due to tropical activity and cold fronts. Wet Season Preparation SFWMD maintenance and infrastructure upgrades are critical to the optimal operation of the regional ood control system of nearly 2,100 miles of canals and 2,000 miles of levees and berms. During the past six years, the District has invested $276 million in essential maintenance work, including: Hardening pump stations Overhauling gated spillways Replacing project culverts Dredging canals Stabilizing canal banks Enhancing treatment wetlands The District also conducted its annual “Hurricane Freddy” exercise on May 22 as part of the agency’s emergency operations readiness for hurricane season.

The legacy of Bud Jones, a veteran Clewiston English teacher and theatre devotee, is again being honored by his family, John and Betty Jones, of LaBelle. FCT is honored to be chosen to facilitate this project, designed to celebrate and showcase theatrical arts in southwest Florida. The competition welcomes full-length, previously unpublished plays, written by authors with a southwest Florida connection. A fee of $25 must accompany the manuscript, which may be submitted electronically or by mail and received prior to Aug. 1. The blinded scripts will then be reviewed by a panel of judges, including community members from education, library, publishing and theatrical backgrounds. Cash awards for authors of rst, second and third place winners are $500, $200 and $100, respectively. Additionally, FCT will produce a scripted reading of the rst place entrant during its 2014/15 season. The 2013 Clarence “Bud” Jones Competition was won by Chuck Wood, of Lehigh Acres, Fla., for his play, “Up Close at a Distance,” which will be presented on the FCT stage in February 2015. Extensive competition information and forms are found online at www. rehousecommunitytheatre.com or by phone, 863-675-3066.About Clarence JonesClarence Jones, or Bud, as he was known to his friends and family, moved to Clewiston from Ohio in 1973 and taught at Clewiston High School. From 1985 to 1992, Bud owned and operated the Flower Express ower shop in Clewiston and was well known in the community. Bud always liked the theatre! He acted, directed and was involved in all facets of drama while at Eastern Kentucky University. Upon his arrival to Clewiston, he worked with the students at Clewiston High School on several spring performances. He also worked with students and rst responders in Clewiston during disaster training exercises called, “disaster drills,” and assisted with the stage lighting design when the John B. Boy auditorium was built. Bud’s last production was with the Actors Community Theatre of Clewiston in 1989, when he directed “Annie Get Your Gun,” as well as acting the roll of Buffalo Bill Cody in the play. Bud passed away in 1994 and is buried in Clewiston. He left behind his love of the theatre with his family, most importantly his brother, John Jones. John and his wife Betty wished to honor Bud’s memory by creating this competition in his name.
