City may prohibit ATVs in BG


Ban will outlaw
ATVs on Torry
Island

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE At Monday
night's commission meeting,
the city commissioners voted to
table an item that would ban the
use of all terrain vehicles (ATV)


and off highway motorcycles
(OHM) on Torry Island.
The commission will discuss
the item Monday, April 23 at
6:30 p.m. after deciding it need-
ed more time to consider the
issue.
Some concerns from the city
regarding the ATV and OHM use
on Torry Island include soil ero-
sion, vegetation and turf dam-
age and other environmental
issues that could have an
adverse effect on the island.


If the ban passes, recreation-
al users will have to find other
ways to enjoy their ATVs and
OHMs. Traditionally, ATVs are
allowed for use on private prop-
erty, but are not allowed on
public streets.
The ban, however, would not
apply to vehicles that are used
for law enforcement, fire man-
agement or other governmental
purposes, according to informa-
tion provided by the city of Belle
Glade.


A new reign: Collier named Harvest Queen


INI/Naji Tobias
The contestants who participated in the 2007 Harvest Queen Pageant smile for the cam-
era. The girls were featured at the Harvest Queen pageant held on Saturday, April 14 at
the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center in Belle Glade.

Kayla Collier crowned Queen


Collier awarded a
scholarship to PBCC
and a gift certificate

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On Satur-
day night, Kayla Collier was
crowned this year's Harvest
Queen during a ceremony held
at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts
Center in Belle Glade.
The Harvest Queen Pageant
was sponsored by the Lion's
Club and Palm Beach Commu-
nity College.
Kayla, who was sponsored
by Pope Farms Inc., beat out 15
other contestants in the well-
attended pageant. Runners up
See Queen Page 12


Kayla Collier, the 2007 Harvest Queen Winner, is elated
after being named the Harvest Queen at an event last
weekend. Ms. Collier said the experience was a confi-
dence-booster for her.


Through the ban, officials
hope to minimize the potential
liability issues that could result
due to injuries connected with
the use of the all-terrain vehicles
on city lands. Officials said it
eliminates the possibility of law-
suits being filed against the city
by recreational users.
At the same time, banning
the motorized vehicles should
provide a better natural experi-
ence for other frequent visitors
to the island the city continues


its work in attracting eco-
tourism dollars through several
projects associated with Torry
Island and the natural scenery
that surrounds the small parcel
that sits on Lake Okeechobee.
Violators of the policy,
according to officials, would
face a second degree misde-
meanor charge, along with a
fine of up to $500. Also, viola-
tors could face imprisonment
for up to 60 days.

Bryan Mill closes


CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar
Corporation announced that its
2006-2007 sugarcane harvest sea-
son was completed Wednesday,
marking the end of operations for
the Bryant Sugar Mill.
The mill's steam whistle blew
for an extended period of time,
marking the last railroad car of
sugarcane unloaded at approxi-
mately 2:30 p.m. on April 11.
For the last time, the compa-
ny's sugarcane harvest of approx-
imately 6.3 million tons of sugar-
cane was processed at two
separate raw sugar mills located
at Bryant and at Clewiston.
The 190-day harvesting and
processing season produced
approximately 13.5 million cwt of
sugar. For comparison, the 2005-
2006 season that was directly
impacted by Hurricane Wilma,
produced 5.6 million tons of sug-
arcane and 11.7 million cwt (one
hundred pounds) of refined
sugar.
"Although we escaped hurri-
cane damage this season, this
year's crop showed impact from
the previous years' hurricanes
and an extremely dry year with
multiple freeze events. The crop is


larger than the last two seasons
but still not back to pre-hurricane
levels," said Robert Coker, senior
vice president, public affairs.
The Bryant Mill processed it
first crop of 800,000 tons of sugar-
cane in 1962, producing 165 mil-
lion pounds of sugar. Bryant
ground over three million tons of
cane this season, producing 560
million pounds of sugar.
"We acknowledge and appre-
ciate the efforts of the Bryant
Sugar Mill personnel in setting a
high standard for consistent
excellence in operations," said
Mr. Coker. "The Bryant facility
ground more than 90 million tons
of sugarcane over the past 45
years and set many production
records in the process.
"While this is the end of the
Bryant Sugar story, it marks an
exciting new beginning for U.S.
Sugar's high tech sugar manufac-
turing operations at Clewiston,"
Coker said.
The final phase of the three-
phase breakthrough project to
consolidate and automate U.S.
Sugar's sugar manufacturing

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. I
don't know if this a good, "ask the
vet question," but, here goes...
Last week I was up late after an
all night cram session for a college
test and could-
n't fall asleep.
So, I was up
watching TV I
came across a
program on
everything I
ever wanted to
know about
Cow Chip Toss-
ing! I think I
may just change
my major. Ha! Savvy
No, but think I will remain nameless
for obvious reasons. Is this for real?
Is this an actual sport?
What next? Thanks for your
time.
Answer: Ahhh? Well? Sure why
not...I'll try to answer that one!! Ok
here goes...
Dear nameless-up too late-col-
lege student. Yes, Cow Chip Toss-


ing is an actual competitive sport.
How do I know this? Well, I went
to Veterinary College at Oklahoma
State University, where Cow
Chipin', and Cow Tippin' are two
great past times!
Cow chip tossing is sort of a
Frisbee contest with a cow patty.
Fresh cow poop, hay or straw are
mixed together in top secret com-
bination. Shaped aerodynamically
and set to dry.
The winner is the one with the
farthest traveling cow chip that
doesn't disintegrate in mid-air!
Now, as for you college stu-
dents; you have way too much
time on your hands. I do hope a
summer job is in your future. Do
take care and ease off the caffeine!
DocSavvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavy@aol.com and check out
your pet answers weekly in *The
Pet Corner*. Be sure to tune into
*The Savvy Vet Show* each and
every Thursday at 10:30 am on

Rural development


funding proposal


TALLAHASSEE Agriculture
Secretary Mike Johanns outlined
details recently of several proposed
2007 farm bill changes that he said
will streamline USDA's Rural Devel-
opment programs and expand
funding for rural health care and
community facilities.
The proposals would increase
funding for Rural Critical Access
Hospitals and for other communi-
ty needs, ranging from water sys-
tems to distance learning capabili-
ties in schools.
The United States Department
of Agriculture is proposing funding
to support a $1.6 billion loan pro-
gram to help rehabilitate and


update facilities and equipment at
Rural Critical Access Hospitals.
To enhance basic rural infra-
structure, the administration also
proposes infusing an additional
$500 million to reduce the backlog
of applications for rural develop-
ment water and waste disposal
grants and loans, emergency com-
munity water assistance grants,
community facilities loan and grant
programs that assist rural first
responders, broadband access
loans, and distance learning and
telemedicine grants.
The administration also propos-
es consolidating several rural devel-
opment legislative authorities.

The Glades Area Branch of the
American Red Cross will start a life-
saving course in South Bay and
Clewiston in May. The Adult

In order to successfully com-

cises that are given the day of each
class. American Red Cross recog-
nizes 1-year CPR certification and 3-
year First Aid certification.
You can also take all three
courses for $45. You can pick any
two days and locations. You'll take
Adult CPR, Child/Infant CPR, and
one of the two days you will also
complete a First Aid course. Your
total cost for the two days of train-
ing is only $45, including all materi-

TALLAHASSEE Florida'
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the
arrest of a Bunnell, man for
defrauding at least 11 Florida res-
idents out of thousands of dollars
in a low income home building
assistance scam.
Todd M. Findley, 42, has been
charged with three counts of
grand theft and one count of
organized scheme to defraud, all
third degree felonies, following a
two year investigation by the
Department's Office of Agricultur-
al Law Enforcement. The investi-
gation originated with four com-
plaints received through the
Division of Consumer Services'
consumer helpline against Find-
ley's business, European Ameri-
can Heritage Foundation. As the
investigation continued, officers
uncovered seven more victims.
Investigators say Findley
offered to help low income fami-

lies get a decent home that they
would help to build. Findley took
$2,500 from families as a down
payment. He told them they
would be required to work at
least 500 hours on other founda-
tion homes to become a partner
in the program and then their
home would be built with the
help of the other families.
At least 11 families signed con-
tracts and gave Findley a total of
$27,500 but no homes have been
built. Investigators with Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement say Find-
ley made ongoing excuses as to
why the homes weren't being
built and did not give the victims
an opportunity to fulfill the agree-
ment they signed.
"It is outrageous that these
families pinned their hope of the
American dream on this suspect,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Not only did
they not get their homes built,
these families who least can
afford it were taken for thousands


of dollars. I hope this arrest sends
a message to scam artists that our
Agricultural Law Enforcement
officers will aggressively investi-
gate and take action against those
who would harm our most vul-
nerable citizens."
Findley has been booked into
the Flagler County jail. The eleven
victims are from throughout the
state, including Miami, West Palm
Beach, New Port Richey and Palm
Coast. Mr. Bronson said he
believes there may be additional
victims of the scam as the investi-
gation is continuing.
The Commissioner is urging
anyone who thinks they may have
been victimized by Findley to call
his Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement at 1-800-342-5869.
Mr. Bronson credited the Fla-
gler County Sheriff's Department
and Flagler County State Attor-
ney's Office for its assistance in
the investigation.

Earth Day celebration in the park


Event encourages
environmental
awareness

By Barbara Oehlbeck
INI
HENDRY COUNTY The
37th annual Earth Day will be cel-
ebrated Saturday, April 21 in over
180 nations. Every year more
countries are celebrating this
essential event to teach and
encourage all citizens of all coun-
tries the importance of caring
enough to take care of the earth.
Locally, the celebration is
Earth Day in the Park, at Barron
Park, which started seven years
ago under the leadership of Tina
Noel. This year the event is under
the direction of Lois James.
The mission of Earth Day is to


spread valuable social informa-
tion throughout the region and
the world and to provide free
services to other non-profit
organizations to help further
their own mission.
It is a belief that Earth Day's
grassroots efforts can ultimately
help relieve some of the world's
most egregious problems.
The combined good-faith
efforts of the masses will create
major, relevant improvements
worldwide. Common people
must act together to represent
common global problems and
interests, supporters of the
nationally recognized day argue.
This event is free for everyone
and promises to be an occasion
to teach what others are doing
for the good earth. Community
groups, schools, churches, agen-
cies, businesses, clubs and indi-


viduals are all invited to take
their displays to show what local
communities are doing.
Also, nominations are invited
from the community to name
Stewards of the Environment
and the Earth.
There will be entertainment and
good food, organizers promise.
Lori Howard will be there
with her story-telling and Kiwa-
nians will be on-hand with their
poster stories. The Hendry-
Glades Health Departments will
demonstrate a safety fair, while
members of Riverwatch will be
there to talk with visitors as well
as the Caloosahatchee River Citi-
zens Association.
There will be a live bike
rodeo, demonstrations of school
bus safety, EMS, Fire Truck,
Buckle-up Car and Epilepsy Ser-
vices of SWFL. Recycling person-


nel will answer questions about
recycling plus lots of give-away
items made of recycled material.
"We urge everyone in our two
counties, Glades and Hendry, to
come to this celebration of Earth
Day," said Lois.lames. "It's a time to
learn and to begin to do whatever
we can as individuals to keep our
earth as it is, or even improve it.
Most of all we must all learn how
we can keep from destroying the
good that is all about us. We cannot
afford to waste anything in the
sky, water, or on the earth itself."
Organizers urge participants
to bring their families, neighbors
and friends to the event.
Earth Day in the Park will
open at noon Saturday, April 21
and continue until 4 p.m. There
is no admission charge.
For more information, call
Lois James at 675-3940.


Be earth-friendly: conserve electricity on Earth Day


N. FT. -MYERS Join thou-
sands of citizens throughout the
nation who will celebrate Earth
Day on April 22 by making a com-
mitment to energy conservation.
There are many easy steps you
can take in your home to make a
difference for the environment,
and many of them will make a dif-
ference for your pocketbook too!
Follow these energy-efficient tips
from LCEC to conserve electricity
AND reduce your electric bill:
Set your thermostat at 78
degrees Fahrenheit. Every degree


cooler costs eight percent more.
Replace filters in your air
conditioner once a month, and
have your unit serviced every
year.
Use ceiling fans to assist in
keeping cool, but use them wise-
ly. Don't leave ceiling fans running
in empty rooms.
Your water heater is the sec-
ond largest expense on your elec-
tric bill. To save money, set its
temperature to between 120 and
140 degrees.
Turn the lights off when you

To maintain a reliable supply of electricity for the growing
population of Florida, fuel diversity is a must.

Florida Power & Light Company has announced plans to build
an advanced clean coal technology power plant in Glades
County. There are several reasons why coal is the right choice
for the FPL Glades Power Park, and fuel diversity is No. 1.

Available and Affordable

Coal supplies are abundant in this country..The U.S.
Department of Energy estimates there is enough coal in this
country to meet the nation's energy needs for the next
200 to 300 years. Greater use of coal could help increase
Florida's energy independence and lessen reliance on natural
gas and foreign oil.

In recent years, the volatility of oil and natural gas prices has
become apparent. Meanwhile, the price of coal has remained


relatively stable. An investment in greater fuel diversity will
protect the energy supply from the effects of price spikes
for any one fuel and helps to stabilize electricity rates for
consumers.
In addition, Florida's natural gas supplies come from two
pipelines both originating in the Gulf of Mexico which
are highly vulnerable to hurricanes and other major storms. At
the FPL Glades Power Park, a 60-day supply of coal could be
stored onsite to ensure a reliable and steady supply of fuel is
available even if new shipments are delayed due to a hurricane
or other event.

Meeting the Demand
State officials have been urging power companies to further
diversify their fuel portfolios to ensure a reliable supply of
power while maintaining stable electricity rates. A diverse mix
of energy sources, each with its own advantages, will help


companies meet the growing demands of American consumers.
Coal is a crucial component of America's energy future.
Today's modern coal plants produce electricity while being
good environmental stewards. New technologies allow power
companies to use coal more efficiently and with fewer
emissions than ever before. The FPL Glades Power Park
will operate well within the strict state and federal emission
requirements and be protective of the environment.
Equally important, the FPL Glades Power Park is designed to
be readily adaptable to new technologies as they are developed.
These advancements, coupled with the availability and afford-
ability of coal, are ensuring coal has a place in America's energy
future.
For these reasons, coal is the right choice for the FPL Glades
Power Park. To learn more about the project, please visit

Big Lake Track Club begins first year


Coaches prepare for
busy year

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Big
Lake Track Club is looking to
make strides in its first season,
with an emphasis on building up
the program for years to come.
The track club, coached by
Roosevelt Blackmon, is an ama-
teur athletic union (AAU) team
that will have about 70 athletes,
with most of them at the ele-
mentary school level. The ages
of the track athletes range from
6 to 17 years old.
Coach Blackmon is also cur-
rently in his fifth year as an assis-
tant track coach for the Glades
Central Raiders boy's team, who
are gearing up for the champi-
onship meets. He stays busy
whenever he can.
The coach, a former NFL
player and Glades Central alum-
ni, said he would like to see his
athletes have a successful sea-
son.
According to him, there are at
least seven track athletes on the
team to really watch out for dur-
ing the upcoming season:
Daniel Phurmandor, a Sixth
grader, will be participating in
the 100 and 400 meter races.
Daniel ran with another track
club for three years.
Carvel Lawrence, a Fifth
grader, will be participating in
the same events as Daniel this
season.
Lloyd Howard, a Sixth grad-
er, will be running in the 100 and
200 meter races.
Karamee Williams, a
Fourth grader, will be in the 400


meter races.
Tamul Kyles, a Fourth grad-
er, will be in the same events as
Lloyd.
Fabiana Nation, a fifth grad-
er, will be in the 100 meter races.
Stephanie St. Louis, a
fourth grader, will run in the 100
and 400 meter races this season.
While the athletes are some
of the more prominent mem-
bers of the team, the coach
promises that others will get a
chance to shine as the season
continues with seven meets
this season, there will be plenty
of chances.
The season is already in
progress with an April 14 meet at
Trinity Catholic High School in
Ocala.
The remaining six meets are
as follows:
April 28 at Flanagan High
School in Pembroke Pines
May 12 at National Training
Center in Clermont
May 19 at Sarasota Booker


High School in Sarasota
June 2 at the regional meet
at Dwyer High School in Jupiter
June 21 to 24 at the state
meet in Orlando.
July 28 to Aug. 6 at the
nationals at the University of
Tennessee in Knoxville, Tenn.
Coach Blackmon said that his
assistant coaches, Phyllis Brooks
and Farrah Morris, will be on
hand to help the athletes achieve
success this season.
The team's practices are held
from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Monday to
Friday, at Pioneer Park.
The coach is adamant about
the future success of the pro-
gram. He hopes this year will be
the foundation that helps
cement the team's chances of
winning.
"I'm really just building for
the future," said Coach Black-
mon.

A woman's work is

(and was) never done!


Recollections of
Harley Arnold as told
to MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
We have been trying to learn
how housekeeping went in the
early days in Florida. The meat and
bones of it, so to speak. An unex-
pected resource has turned up -
Okeechobee County's Harley
Arnold. Mr. Arnold is the youngest
of six children born to William
Eston and Mittie Raulerson Arnold.
"My dad was always out work-
ing, so I ended up spending a lot of
time with my mom," he said.
"When I'd get home from
school, of course, first of all I'd
change my clothes. Then, of course
I was starving, so I'd get a cooked
sweet potato and a piece of
cooked, smoked bacon out of the
safe to eat. (A "safe" is a cupboard
with screen or pierced tin sides for
air circulation where food was
kept.) My next chore was to milk
the cow, and then I'd go out to the
kitchen building behind the main
house. Behind it was a big wooden
box where wood for the stove was
kept. It had a sloped tin roof to keep
the rain out so you would always
have drywood to cook with.
I'd split logs that were cut to fit
inside the fire box of the stove, not
too big. We lit the wood with splin-
ters cut from the tap root of a pine
tree, called lighter wood. It was
called lighter wood since it had so
much turpentine; it would catch
fire and burn really fast.
She cooked on a wood stove.
Some of them had a water tank
that kept some water hot, but she
didn't care for that. She said it
would get all nasty sitting there and
she'd rather heat it as it was need-
ed. She wanted one with six "burn-
ers" on top. Below them on the left
there was a box for the fire with a
grate on the bottom where the
ashes fell. Now the closer things
were to the side with the fire, the
hotter it was and the faster they
cooked. The oven was below the
cook top and the closer to the fire it
was, the hotter it was. It was hot
enough to back any time she was
cooking, I remember biscuits she'd
put on the far side, then open the
oven and turn the pan so they
would cook evenly. There were
two little warming ovens over the
top where you could put some-
thing to keep it warm.
Now my mom told me that
there were still plenty of panthers


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





around when she and my dad
bought this land on Potter Road. So
when she washed, she put the
baby in a wash tub so roaming
panthers would not get them.
See, she was alone a lot of the
time. My dad would leave for
Bluefield Sunday to go haul
oranges to Fort Pierce and not
return until Saturday.
Now, a lot of people say a pan-
ther will come to a pregnant
woman. My mom told me one
time that when she was pregnant
with my brother Robert, a panther
came one night.
The house had wooden shutters
on it. One night after the shutters were
dosed, she could hear a panther
walking around outside the house,
and then scratching on the door.
You know, people call those 'the
good old days." In some ways they
were good, but we don't respect
what these pioneers went through
nearly enough and we should.
I know, because when my dad
was away and my mom and I were
alone, she would tell me the stories.
We didn't have electric for a long
time up here. Our bath tub was a
number three wash tub out in the
yard or in the kitchen if it was cold.
We'd heat water in a bucket to
wash with and not just once week.
We could set a bucket of water out
in the sun in the morning to warm. If
you'd been working in the fields and
were dusty there was no way you
could go without a bath!
When you forgot to set out your
water, it was a cold, cold bath. All
you'd hear was a splash and a gasp
as someone hit that cold water!
Every Mondaywas wash day for
my mom. We got out the tubs,
pumped the water by hand and
heated it up. That was the start of a
long, hard day. The wash was
scrubbed by hand on a wash
board, wrung out by hand, rinsed,
wrung out by hand again and hung
up on the line to dry.
I remember one Monday, it was
wet out and I had me a little red
wagon and I played with it right out
there in the mud and got my
clothes some muddier than I

should have. My mom was preg-
nant at the time and had just fin-
ished up and laid down to rest. Boy,
did I ever hear about it when she
saw me. She had just finished a full
day's washing.
The first washing machine I
remember had a big tub with an
agitator and it would wring the
clothes out for you. It had a gaso-
line motor. It was a big improve-
ment over doing it by hand!
The first refrigerator my wife,
Ruth .and I had was powered by
kerosene. It had a wick and a lamp
at the bottom of it. That wick had to
be kept clean and trimmed just right
and itwould burn with a blue flame.
One time I heard about two fel-
las who were talking. One said he
had just been out on the lake and
had caught him a 20 pound bass.
He just went on about this fish.
When he stopped, the other fella
said that he too had been out on the
lake and had hooked something he
almost couldn't pull up. When he
finally did get it up, he said, it was an
old kerosene lantern still burning.
Well, the first fella said he didn't
believe that for a minute. The sec-
ond fella said, Tell you what, you
take ten pounds off that bass and I'll
blowout the lamp!"
So it goes here in Okeechobee!

Electric Cooperative, Inc.


"Neighbors Working for Neighbors"

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convinced that we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.
Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.
FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.
For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...

Sincerely,



L.T. Todd
General Manager and CEO

Drought hits area farmers hard


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
This year's dry season is the
third driest season recordable in
South Florida history. The United
States Drought Monitor, which
identifies general drought areas
by intensity, has recently classi-
fies all areas of the 16-county
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District as either moderate
or severe drought zones with a
prediction of possible drought
intensification.
A sudden, sharp drop in
water levels across the district
the past week, made worse by
higher temperatures and wind,
have led water managers to
tighten water restrictions already
in place for the Okeechobee Ser-
vice Area, the Lower East Coast
and Upper East Coast Areas.
However, water managers, in
a telephone press conference
held Tuesday, April 3, said that
agricultural users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area will be
required to reduce their water
consumption by 45 percent.
Grazing livestock, cattle and
horses are suffering the lack of
forage. The grass is not growing.
"We are very concerned
about the reduction of water,"
said Ed Hamilton, Vice President
of Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Inc.
"With so little water, without
good rain, there is not enough
water to grow our crops. Now if
there was periodic rain like
we've had the last six days we
would most likely be okay, but, if
we have another dry spell we
would be in trouble."
"The recent rains will keep us
going for two weeks. We have
six weeks left in our growing
season. If we were not this close
to the end, it would be a real
problem. The lettuce, celery,
radishes and sweet corn we
grow need water," he continued.
"In talking with the consult-
ants with the Corps of Engineers,
we realize that the regulation
schedules being proposed will
not give us enough water to

in real trouble now," said Mr.
Hamilton.
We are starting to see the
effects of the drought," said Judy
Sanchez, Director of Corporate
Communications for U.S. Sugar
Co.
"With the water level so low,
we can't get water to some of
the farms. We have actually
been under water restrictions
since November of last year. The
capacity of the pumps will be in
control of the amount of water
we get and they will not give 45
percent. This could be a very
serious economic impact to all
the farms. The drought of 2001
made an impact of $100 million
and this one will be worse the
lake level is lower than it was in
2001. Back then just this region
was declared a drought area.
This time the whole of South
Florida is affected."
"This is what I call a "second
winter," because the grass is
brown, just as if it had been
frozen. When the cows are
down grazing and you see the
areas they've grazed, you won-
der what they are finding to eat,"
said Sonny Williamson of
Williamson Cattle Company.
With horses, this means they
will eat more sand, increasing
the risk of colic.
"More people are buying hay
than ever before," said Pat
Hogue, Extension Agent at the
Agricultural Extension Service in
Okeechobee. Hay buyers have
noticed that feed dealers run out
of hay that is being brought in

from out of state to supply Flori-
da's livestock needs.
"The old farmers around tell
me that drought is Mother
Nature telling you what your
stocking rate should be," said
Mr. Hogue. "Right now most cat-
tle don't look good at all. Some
farmers who have low-lying
areas still have some grass, but
the others don't."
"We bought enough forage
last year to last in fact, we
thought we had over-bought,"
said Ben Butler of Butler Oaks
Farm, Inc. Ben Butler and his
father Bob Butler both have both
a dairy and beef cattle.
"It's not just the grazing.
When you talk about grass, it's
the grass you crop for hay. All the
water we normally use is from a
reclaimed water pond but its
low. We are having to re-dig old
water holes in the pastures for
ground water for the cattle to
drink, he said.
"We have to watch the water
holes carefully," said Mr.
Williamson. "When the cattle
have to walk so far down to get
water, it stirs up mud. That gives
a huge potential for degradation
of the water. Then, of course,
they like to stand in the water to
cool off, too."
S"There have been more ani-
mals die from eating poison
plants this year than we've seen
before," said Mr. Hogue. "When
the grass and forage thin out and
don't grow, the weeds keep
growing. Grazing livestock, that
won't touch these plants when
there is grass to eat, will eat


these plants when there is noth-
ing else to graze on."
"Wildfires are a worry, too,"
said Ben Butler. "There's about
1,300 acres next to us that has
been vacant for two years. It
would be a major fuel source for
a fire. We make sure our heavy
equipment is ready to go and
either my dad is here or I am all
the time."
"I've been in fires like that,"
said Mr. Williamson, "pulling a
water wagon, trying to put out
one of those fires. You almost
can't do it."
"Now that corn is being used
for ethanol, we have seen feed
costs rise 30 percent since last
September, commented Mr. But-
ler. "We have local growers
grow corn for our silage, but it
takes water to grow corn. If we
lose that corn, we are that much
closer to importing silage from
out of state."
"It's going to mean lighter
weight calves going to sale this
fall. That's going to hurt the
economy," said Mr. Williamson.
Gulf Coast Citrus Growers
Association has member grow-
ers in Charlotte Collier, Glades
Lee and Hendry Counties. Ron
Hamel, executive Director of the
group had this to say:
"We have 140,000 acres of
citrus under cultivation in five
counties and about a third of
that depends on the Caloosa-
hatchee River and Lake Okee-
chobee for its water. The rest is
irrigated with ground water. This
is a critical time for our citrus
which is blooming now. Lack of
water could have a serious
impact for setting fruit for net
year. There was $35 million in
damage done to citrus in the
drought of 2001 and the value of
the fruit is double now."
The question is what will be
the cost? What will that do to the
price of our food?"

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) joins
agencies and organizations around
the state in recognizing April as
Child Abuse Prevention Month.
"Research shows that a child
who has been abused or maltreat-
ed is likely to have major health
effects throughout adulthood,"
Deputy Secretary of Health for
Children's Medical Services
(CMS), Joseph J. Chiaro, M.D.
said. "As members of the medical
community, doctors, nurses,
social workers and other health
care providers have an obligation
to watch for signs of abuse and
report them early to ensure the
development of healthy adults."
The Florida Department of
Health recognizes that child


abuse and maltreatment can
have serious long term health
implications and that prevention
plays a key role in ensuring a
healthy future for Florida's chil-
dren. Data from the Adverse
Childhood Experiences (ACE)
Study conducted by the Center
for Disease Control and Kaiser
Permanente's Health Appraisal
Clinic in San Diego, shows that
children who have been abused
or neglected are more likely to
have long term health problems,
including a higher tendency to
smoke, develop a drug addic-
tion, become suicidal, or be
diagnosed diabetes or heart dis-
ease. Medical professionals and
all Floridians should help create
a statewide community where


children are supported, protect-
ed and can grow up healthy.
CMS Child Protection Teams
are committed to the prevention
of child abuse, abandonment,
and neglect and provide multidis-
ciplinary assessment services to
children and families involved in
child abuse and neglect investiga-
tions. Located around the state,
these teams conduct medical
evaluations, provide diagnosis,
medical consultations, nursing
assessments, forensic and spe-
cialized interviews, family psy-
chosocial assessments, psycho-
logical evaluations, and provide a
variety of child abuse and neglect
training for family members and
professionals.
Child Abuse Prevention


Month was initially proclaimed in
1982 by President Ronald Rea-
gan. The symbol of child abuse
awareness is the blue ribbon.
Originating in Virginia in 1989, a
grandmother of a three-year-old
boy who died from his mother's
boyfriend's abuse tied a blue rib-
bon to her van as a symbol of her
personal commitment to the pre-
vention of child abuse.
Throughout the month, child
abuse prevention materials will
be available at Child Protection
Team offices and County Health
Departments across the state. For
more information, visit the DOH
web site at www.doh.state.fl.us
and select Children's Medical Ser-
vices from the drop down menu
or visit www.cms-kids.com.

Florida's mottled duck is a species on the brink Mill


Well, I hope all you turkey
hunters in the South Hunting
Zone took a nice bird or two this
year, as your season's coming to
a close. For those of us in the rest
of the state, we still have until
April 22 to bag us a good long-
beard. But after spring gobbler
season, there's really not much
hunting to talk about, so I'd like
to tell you about another bird -
one that really needs our help -
the Florida mottled duck.
Many parents buy mallard
ducklings for their children.
We've done that for generations,
but consequences have caught
up with us.
These ducks can live 10 years.
They might make nice pets while
they're still small enough to fit in
your hand, but when they
become full-grown and the nov-
elty wears off, people often grow
tired of caring for them and
decide to turn them loose. Most
don't realize that is against the
law, and these mallards pose a
serious threat to Florida's native
wildlife.
Besides making it illegal to
release mallards, Florida law
also requires anyone possessing,
buying or selling mallards to
have a permit from the FWC,
and the birds must be kept in a
cage as long as they live.
One reason for this rule is that

Award went to Megan Lyles.
Kayla was awarded a scholar-
ship to Palm Beach Community
College, as well as a gift certificate
from Gilbert's Jewelry.

position classes.

domesticated ducks can trans-
mit diseases and compete with
native wildlife for food and habi-
tat. It's actually illegal to release
any animal into the wild if it
poses a disease hazard. But the
most important reason is releas-
ing domesticated mallards into
the wild threatens the existence
of the Florida mottled duck.
The Florida mottled duck,
also called the Florida duck, is a
unique subspecies found only in
peninsular Florida. It keeps to a
small home range in inland and
coastal wetland ecosystems.
To hunters, the mottled duck
is a highly prized game bird
found in many ponds, lakes,
rivers, marshes and canals in
Central and South Florida. They
are large ducks, brownish in
color, with both sexes being
darker than a mallard but slightly
lighter than a black duck.
This species is one of only a


National Honor Society, the Fel-
lowship of Christian Athletes, the
Prom Committee and the First
United Methodist Church/Youth
Group. She also teaches baton to
elementary age girls at Glades
Day School and is a twirler at
Glades Day football games.
Claire Collier, Kayla's mother,
said that her daughter participat-
ed in a week of rehearsals prior to
Saturday night's pageant, which
included learning a group dance
entitled the Bombshell Stomp.
The contestants performed the
dance routine at the pageant with
2006 Harvest Queen winner Can-
dace Pavey, which was choreo-
graphed by Deena Lee-Stamm.
On Saturday, Kayla and the
other contestants took part in
one-on-one interviews with the
judges, as well as questioning by


few non-migratory ducks in
North America. The mottled
duck spends its entire life within
Florida.
In the spring, wild mallards
fly north to breed and are not
present when the mottled duck
mating season begins. On the
other hand, store-bought mal-
lards don't migrate and instead
become established, year-round
residents of Florida. These
domesticated mallards cross-
breed with mottled ducks and
produce hybrid offspring. The
offspring are fertile, which fur-
ther compounds the problem.
Each year, there are fewer pure-
bred mottled ducks left, and the
trend is driving the Florida mot-
tled duck toward extinction.
Communities around the
globe have seen similar prob-
lems. In New Zealand, domesti-
cated mallards, released to pro-
vide hunting stock, have
devastated the local grey duck
populations. Now, 95 percent of
the grey ducks in New Zealand
are crossbreeds.
The Hawaiian duck is another
example. This endangered bird
has been all but completely
hybridized and may be geneti-
cally intact only on the island of
Kauai.
Meller's duck in Madagascar
is yet another example.


Mike Miller, the master of cere-
monies. Kayla said that the
process helped her gain a little
more self-confidence.
Kayla, who was the first run-
ner up in the 2006 Junior Harvest
Queen Pageant, said she enjoyed
the Harvest Queen experience.
"I'm glad that I won, but even
if I didn't, I had fun going through
the practices and getting to know
all of the girls," she said. "It was
great to know them outside a
school setting."
Ms. Collier said that she is
proud of her daughter.
"I'm extremely excited for
Kayla, as she did a wonderful job
and was beautiful beyond
words," said Ms. Collier. "She has
a true spirit and is beautiful inside
and. out."
Ms. Collier said that the pri-


The fate of the Florida mot-
tled duck could be similar, as its
population is relatively small,
estimated at only 30,000-40,000
breeding birds. FWC biologists
say between seven and 12 per-
cent of the state's mottled ducks
are showing genetic evidence of
hybridization.
Floridians purchase more
than 12,000 mallards a year, and
many of them make their way
into nearby waters. Given these
alarming figures, plus the fact
the population of mottled ducks
is small, it wouldn't take long for
the Florida mottled duck to dis-
appear.
Don't feed or shelter domesti-
cated mallards, help spread the
word and consider requesting
permits to remove any that may
live on your property.

tecting Florida's mottled duck or

domesticated mallards, contact

mary purpose of the pageant is to
teach the contestants responsibili-
ty, discipline and commitment.
Ms. Stamm, the co-coordina-
tor for the Harvest Queen
Pageant, echoed that sentiment
by adding that the pageant is
much more than just a beauty
pageant and that the lessons the
girls learn prepares them for the
future.
Cathy Lee, also a co-coordina-
tor, said that she had a great expe-
rience working with the contest-
ants.
"I think the participants in the
pageant will be better able to han-
dle interviews and other pressure
situations," said Ms. Lee. "I had
had a great time contributing to
the pageant and I had fun."

will be completed during the sum-

Beginning in early October
2007, U.S. Sugar's entire sugarcane
crop will be processed at the newly
consolidated and automated sugar
manufacturing facility in Clewiston.
According to Coker, recent free
trade agreements and ongoing
negotiations with additional sugar-
producing foreign countries mean
more foreign sugar entering the
U.S. market.

Rehearsals are expected to
continue throughout the week,
with students from Kindergarten
to Grade Twelfth encouraged to
participate in the production.
The Missoula Theatre will be
returning to the Dolly Hand Center
for its 13th consecutive season,
according to officials.
Ms. Woodham said the chil-
dren who have been part of the
production in the past have come
back year after year, with some
going on to become professional
actors and actresses. According to
her, the play has been a very good
way of searching out the hidden
talent in the Glades area.

for the shooting was robbery.


The increased efficiency of the
new sugar manufacturing opera-
tions is aimed at ensuring that U.S.
Sugar is competitive into the future.
The 42,000 tons per day opera-
tion will be one of the world's
largest and will make U.S. Sugar
the lowest-cost sugar producer in
the United States and Mexico.
"Unfortunately, trade agree-
ments and foreign sugar have
required automation, and that
means the elimination of jobs," Mr.
Coker said. "The employees of the
Bryant Mill have been an integral
part of our family for more than
four decades and have done
extraordinarywork."

"It is a special opportunity for
the children of the Glades area,
as it is amazing to see how fast
they could learn the whole play
in less than a week," said Ms.
Woodham.
Ms. Woodham said that
among the roles to be cast for the
production are the Pied Piper,
Sara, the mayor's son and
daughter, the mayor's council,
cooks, town kids and the trouble-
some rats.
The final presentations are
scheduled for 11 a.m. and 7 p.m.
April 28 at the Dolly Hand Cultural
Arts Center, according to execu-
tive director Leigh Woodham.
According to Ms. Woodham,
the play should be a great way to
close out the 25th Anniversary of
the Dolly Hand Center and the
2006-2007 performing season.
"Our 25th season has been our
most successful ever;" said Ms.
Woodham. "We couldn't have
done it without our patrons, sup-
porters and community partners."

Detectives are currently work-
ing on the homicide case, and the
investigation is ongoing.

Being right or wrong; when belief wins the day


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone told me that the best
words to hear are "You're right!"
and the worst words to hear are
"You're -,
wrong!" I'm
sure there are
others but
these words V.
can be very
very discon-
certing. To be
told we're
wrong means SamuelS.
that there may Thomas
be a struggle
ahead, things will have to be reor-
ganized, we may have to discard
something we hold dearly; friends
and other like-minded people
may not be that friendly after all.
It's not so good to be told
"You're wrong!" Wrong answers
mean trouble.


We're a "have-it-your-way"
people when we can be; wrong
says we may not be having it our
way after all. One of the commen-
tators on TV was talking about tax
audits and advising that simple
things may trigger an audit; like
not stapling forms to the returns
in the right place. One little error
and be ready to dig out records
and try to remember where all of
those numbers came from.
Someone once sent hundreds of
invitations to their wedding to all
of their friends, but put my home
address on them instead of the
Church address. I had visions of
hundreds of people showing up
in my front yard asking "Where's
the wedding?" and put a sign on
my front door before leaving for
the Church. The couple was visi-
bly upset by this error; somebody
was wrong about a very impor-
tant detail on a very important day
for them and it made a mark. I
have often thought about the
well-known "Doubting Thomas"


as someone who had it wrong
and was a "have-it-your-way" per-
son in his own generation. When
we're right, we have an inside
track on the way things really are;
when we're wrong, we miss part
of reality and are out of touch.
That can be very disagreeable
indeed! For Thomas, there were
his friends the other disciples -
who told him about seeing the
risen Lord when he was not with
them (John 20:19ff). I can appre-
ciate Thomas' difficulty in believ-
ing that someone had risen from
the dead; that kind of thing does-
n't happen. The other disciples
affirmed that it was really so; that
they were sure in what they had
seen. Thomas was not so sure.
This did not conform to what peo-
ple knew or what took place
every day, or how the world
seemed to work. Thomas, under-
standably, has his doubts, but he
is willing to be proven wrong. He
sets the conditions for revising his
world-view and says "Unless I see


the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger in the mark of
the nails, and put my hand in His
side, I will not believe." Thomas
has been asked to admit that he
was wrong; but he also recog-
nizes that maybe, just maybe, his
view needs to be changed. As the
story concludes, Jesus visits again
when he is present and invites
him to "Reach out your hand and
put it in my side. Do not doubt,
but believe."
Thomas then affirms "My Lord
and my God!" and he is told


"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." That has been the rest of
us ever since. The story of some-
one rising from the dead is hard
for some to believe; that He
should want us to rise with Him
may be even harder. It is easier for
the indifferent or the non-believer
to say "You're wrong" and to on
their way. Then, there are those
millions whose lives have been
changed by believing, by being
among those who have seen
beyond the "reality" of what


seemed to be in the past, and
who live among those who the
Lord included when He said
"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." Their reality has
changed the world and they're
affirmed in it. They keep working
to see things improved and are
optimistic, hopeful, joyous. They
know how the story ends; they
got it right after all and the words
spoken are music to their ears.
They have come to believe, even
if they didn't see-and it's for real.


How to make prayer effective


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we attempt to develop
effective prayer lives, there are
certain things to keep in mind to
make our prayer effective.
First, we must pray without
calling undue attention to our-
selves. One of Jesus' criticisms of
the Pharisees was that "they love
to pray standing in the syna-
gogues and on the corners of the
streets, that they may be seen of
men" (Matthew 6:5). Our prayers
should never become a matter of
display.
Second, we must not allow
our prayers to degenerate into
mere formality. Jesus warned
against using "vain repetitions" in
prayers (Matthew 6:7). For exam-
ple, think of the way we some-


times pray at mealtime or bed-
time. If prayer becomes a series of
set words and cliches that have
no real meaning to the person
saying them, then we should re-
think what we are saying.
Third, we must pray with the
full confidence of faith in God.
How do we know that He will
answer us according to His wis-
dom? God is a liberal giver and
we must take our request to Him
"in faith, nothing doubting"
(James 1:5-6).
Fourth, we must always pray
according to the will of God.
"Now, this is the confidence that
we have in Him, that if we ask
anything according to His will, He
hears us. And if we know that He
hears us, whatever we ask, we
know that we have the petitions


that we have asked of Him" (I
John 5:14-15).
Fifth, we must be living lives of
submission to God in order for
our prayers to be effective with
Him. "For the eyes of the Lord are
on the righteous and His ears are
open to their prayers; but the face
of the Lord is against those who
do evil" (I Peter 3:12).
Sixth, we must be willing to do
whatever is necessary on our part
to have our prayers answered. For
example, it is foolish to pray for
health and not take care of one-
self; it is foolish to pray for the
church and not support her every
good work; it is foolish to pray for
the-lost and not try to reach your
friends who are lost.
Let us be encouraged to think
on these things.

will be an open-house format so the public may arrive at any time between 5:00 pm and 7:00
pm. Aerial photographs, conceptual plans, and other project-related information will be on
display. County staff will be available to answer questions and discuss the project. Please
note that this is not a public hearing. A formal public hearing will be held later in the study
process, in keeping with state and federal requirements.

It's Friday, but Sunday's coming


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
How could so much have
happened in such a short time?
What did it all mean? It was only
mid-afternoon, but it had
seemed like a week had passed
since last evening. There were
wars and rumors of wars. Every-
one was running scared of what
might happen next. Some
believed the world was going to
hell in a hand basket. Others did
not know what to believe. Many
just could not believe it had hap-
pened. It just could not be true.
But it did happen, and it was
true. Jesus was crucified -
dead. They didn't know what
was going to happen next. Hope
was shattered. Despair reigned.
Nerves were on edge. Fear was
in the air. It was a dark Friday.
Centuries later, we have the
advantage. We know that Jesus
was crucified, dead and buried.
We also know that on the third
day He arose again from the
dead. Our Lord overcame the


grave. This gives us a hope.
Though it might be Friday in our
life right now, we have the assur-
ance that Sunday is coming with
its' resurrec-
tion promises.
We all
experience ..
dark Fridays.
There are
those days
when we feel
like the whole
world is com-
ing down John
upon us. There Hicks
are those
times when things just don't go
well and sometimes those times
seem like they have been going
on forever. And then there are
those "grain of sand down the
pants" type frustrations. You
know the type: small, irritating
and often times, chaffing. It is
during all of these dark Friday
times that we need to remember
the promise of Sunday.
The promise of Sunday
means that we don't have to let
the dark Fridays of life keep us

down. No matter how bad a sit-
uation might be; the end of it
will come. We know that even
though things might be really
dark now, there is a light at the
end of the tunnel. Sunday is
coming. We know that Jesus is
alive and because He lives, we
can live and live abundantly.
That's the word that the world
is waiting to hear. That's what we
need to go out and tell the world.
When they get depressed, we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they are hurting,
when they feel that they can
never know love again we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they have lost
their belief in the miraculous so
that they no longer expect great
things from God, we must tell
them that Sunday's coming.
Even though it's Friday right
now, with all of the despair, hard-
ships, and uncertainties that come
with it, Christ is going to rise again.
There is no power on earth, above
the earth, or below the earth that
can keep Him down.
Martin Luther once spent


three clays in a black depression
over something that had gone
wrong. On the third clay his wife
came downstairs dressed in
mourning clothes. "Who's
dead?" he asked her. "God," she
replied. Luther rebuked her, say-
ing, "What do you mean, God is
dead? God cannot die." "Well,"
she replied, "the way you've
been acting I was sure He had!"
Let us not get caught in that
trap. We serve a risen Savior -
He's in the world today. Because
He lives, we can live, too. Easter
lets us know that no situation is
beyond God's redeeming power.
Another Easter has come and
gone, but the Easter message
and promise lives on. Sunday is
coming. Let us name, claim, and
proclaim the resurrection life!
