ArrestsSee Inside Arrests BY NAJI TOBIAS Special to INIGlades Day is going back to the postseason. In a four-team district with Jupiter Christian, Village Academy and Boca Raton Christian, the Gators (4-0; 2-0 in District 7-2A play) needed just two wins to punch its playoff ticket and did just that in a 30-12 come-from-behind win over the Eagles on Sept. 20. Down 12-6 in the third quarter, junior Kevon Spence made a gamechanging play on special teams, as he returned an 80-yard kickoff for a touchdown that tied things up. Alberto Garcia connected on an extra-point attempt, which gave Glades Day a 13-12 lead that it didn’t relinquish the rest of the game. “It felt great to come back,” Glades Day Head Coach Eric Pitts said. “We started off slow, but we were able to wear them down in the second half.” The Gators went into the fourth quarter with a 16-12 lead, thanks to a 36-yard eld goal made by Garcia. A close game turned into a comfortable win, courtesy of a rushing touchdown each by senior athlete Jonathan Rodriguez and senior fullback Jonathan Leon. Rodriguez punched it in the end zone off a 16-yard run that made it a 23-12 lead, and Leon accounted for the game’s nal score with a 61-yard burst into the end zone. “The Jonathan duo played like warriors,” Pitts said. “When you’re looking at Rodriguez, next thing you know, Leon hits the opponent for a long run. You have two guys who are just playing well for us right now.” Pitts spoke on his offensive line, which made it possible for BY AMANDA RAMOS-GUY Special to the SunPahokee residents urged city ofcials to act swiftly in solving an on-going crisis with the city’s marina and campground at Tuesday’s commission meeting. Tenants at the Lake Okeechobee Resort complained that their power would be shut off Wednesday. According to them, their water is currently disconnected. One meeting attendee explained to the commission that despite having paid his docking fees, which include power and water fees, to Wayne Gray, the resort’s current operator, his power will still be disconnected. He said that FPL cannot run lines to the boats the way they can to the individual campers in the campground.

at St. Mary’s Hospital in West Palm Beach. Deputies in Palm Beach say Williams was requesting the names, birthdates and social security numbers of patients for the purpose of selling them. Hammond is painted as a willing accomplice, entering the patient registries at the hospital and sending that back to Williams. During one exchange, Williams seems eager to get her hands on more names, and an ambulance full of gunshot victims seems to be the perfect place to get them: Hammond: “how many u want now friend” Williams: “I’m sayn I’m just gone do 10 now but keep the rest til later unless u have time to do whatever u can” Hammond: “ok just got a gunshot trauma in multiple victims give me about 15 minutes friend pls.” Local law enforcement of cials eventually made or attempted contact with at least 15 victims whose information had been transferred by Hammond to Williams via text messages. Most, if not all, said they had visited St. Mary’s Hospital in the last year and had given their personal information when they were admitted. Hammond eventually spoke with sheriff’s of ce detectives. Having worked at St. Mary’s since 2007, and describing Williams as a friend, Hammond said she had acquired the information from the hospital, after initially resisting the charges. It was when investigators began reading her text messages to Williams that Hammond reportedly said she didn’t have to read them, became quiet and put her head down. She explained that she supplied Williams with the personal information of patients and said she understood that it may have been wrong to do so. She said she did it because she was desperate for money, but said she never did receive any money for the information she provided. Using the information, of cials caught up with Nikki Williams on Sept. 19 and formally charged her with multiple counts of fraud.

The Palm Beach County Planning, Zoning, and Building (PZB) Department is making it easier for construction contractors to do business throughout Palm Beach County. Currently, contractors must enroll with the county to work in unincorporated areas. They must also enroll with individual municipalities to work in incorporated areas. That’s a lot of time and paperwork and could also mean a lot of money. To speed things up, contractors who enroll with Palm Beach County will now have their information available to participating municipalities without having to re-enroll. Member cities have the option of accessing the information through the county’s website, or they can employ an automated process to obtain information. Initially, 12 municipalities are taking part in the program, and others are expected to sign on soon. For details, please call the Palm Beach County Contractors Certi cation Division at 561233-5525. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 26, 2013 SUN SPOTS FraudContinued From Page 1

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 26, 2013 Charles W. Lucas was appointed to the Board of Directors of Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative at its Sept. 19 board meeting, lling the unexpired term ending January 2015 held by the recently retired Chairman George H. Wedgworth. Lucas, of Ft. Myers, earned his Masters of Business Administration from the University of South Florida and has been active in Florida agriculture since 1981. He is currently president of King Ranch Florida Division, where he oversees the company's agricultural operations, including citrus on the east and west coasts and sugarcane, sod, rice and winter vegetable operations in the Everglades Agricultural Area. Prior to joining King Ranch as president of its Consolidated Citrus Limited Partnership in 2005, he was vice president of Southern Gardens Citrus and senior vice president of Turner Foods. Lucas sits on the Board of the Florida Fruit and Vegetable Association and the Florida Land Council. He has held several leadership positions in the citrus industry, including serving as a commissioner on the Florida Department of Citrus, president of Florida Citrus Processors Association, chairman of the National Juice Products Association and director of Florida Citrus Mutual. "Charlie's tenure in Florida agriculture and keen business acumen will make him a great asset to our board," said Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida Chairman John L. Hundley. "His leadership in the citrus industry will prove to be valuable in his new role at the Cooperative." In accepting his appointment Lucas said, "I'm honored to join the Board of the Cooperative. The Cooperative comprises some of the most forward-thinking farmers anywhere in the county." Lucas added, "To be part of the world's largest sugar re ning company is really exciting and I hope to be able to contribute to the continued success of the Cooperative." Wedgworth announced his full retirement and stepped down from the Board in August, after 52 years at the helm. The board passed a resolution honoring Wedgworth for his many contributions to the Cooperative and betterment of Glades agriculture at the September board meeting. Lucas Appointed to Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative Board BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department of Health Flu seasons can be unpredictable. Cases of seasonal u are reported every year, but the time of year, the severity and the length of the season can vary from one year to another. Flu activity most commonly peaks in the U.S. in January or February, however, seasonal u activity can begin as early as October and continue to occur into the month of May. Flu viruses are constantly changing, so it's not unusual for new u virus strains to appear each year. Yearly u vaccinations should begin in September or as soon as the vaccine is available. (Remember, it takes up to two weeks to provide protection after receiving the shot.) The u viruses are usually spread from droplets when an infected person doesn't cover their mouth when coughing or sneezing. Sometimes people get infected from touching something with u viruses on it, then, before they get a chance to wash their hands, they end up touching their nose, eyes or mouth which can transfer the u virus into their bodies. Many other viruses spread these ways, too. People infected with the u may be able to infect others beginning one day before symptoms develop and up to seven days after becoming sick. That means people may be able to spread the u to others before they even know they are sick! Here are some tips to help prevent the spread of u. Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash after you use it, or cough into your elbow (not your hand). Wash your hands often with soap and water; if soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer. Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth because germs are spread this way. Try to keep your distance from anyone who may be sick. If you're sick, keep your distance from others or stay home. Finally, get re-vaccinated every year because u viruses change. Getting a u shot not only protects you from getting the u, but you are also protecting your family, friends, co-workers, or anyone that you may come in contact with. Flu shots may prevent severe illness. Over 200,000 people are hospitalized every year from u related complications. Kids under two years of age and adults over 65 years of age are more likely to be hospitalized from the effects of the u. Flu shots may also prevent u-related deaths. Each year, thousands of people in the U.S. die because of the u. Most of these deaths are infants and people aged 65 and older. More people die from the u than from any vaccine-preventable disease. Protect yourself, your family and friends by getting vaccinated. It’s Flu Season! "The Cooperative comprises some of the most forward-thinking farmers anywhere in the county. To be part of the world's largest sugar re ning company is really exciting and I hope to be able to contribute to the continued success of the Cooperative."— Charles W. Lucas

The runner-up pulled 4,000 pounds. The owners of the two horses wondered how much the animals could pull if they worked together. So they hitched them up and loaded the sled. To everyone's surprise, the horses were able to pull 12,000 pounds -that's 3,500 pounds more than if they had gone alone! This is an example of synergy taking place -where combining forces produces better results than individual effort. Simply de ned, it means that the effect of the whole is greater than the sum of the effects of the individual parts. We see this in the migration of geese. By ying in a "V" formation, each goose can y longer and faster than they could if they ew alone. The updraft of the wings of the goose in front of them helps make ight easier for the goose following. When the lead goose gets tired, it drops back and another takes his or her place. The geese in the back honk encouragement to those in front. Someone estimated that the ock can travel 71 percent further by this apping, rotating, helping and honking, which enables them to accomplish what they set out to do more quickly and ef ciently. The same can apply to us. Teamwork will produce an overall better result than if each person was working toward the same goal individually. An acronym for team: T.E.A.M = Together Everyone Achieves More! In the community sense, think of what we could accomplish if everyone came together for a common purpose! Why not come out and share in this experience right now? Through this next Sunday, a call has gone out for the Clewiston community to come together to help build the "Sweetest Town Playground." You might ask, "What difference would I make?" Yet one person joined together with many others can make the difference between the project being completed or just dreamed about. Teamwork makes the dream work! In the spiritual sense, Christians sometimes think they can't change the world. We ask, "What can one person do?" Yet a timid Christian voice can become a roar when the voice joins together with the voices of others in a congregation, and the voices of the entire body of Christ. Think of the impact on the world we could have if we came together with other believers. The coordinated body of Christ could change the world on an unimaginable scale! Henry Ford said, "Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results." Vince Lombardi said, "Individual commitment to a group effort -that is what makes a team work, a company work, a society work, a civilization work." Religion ColumnTeamwork Makes the Dream Work The recreational harvest of red snapper will open Oct. 1 in state and federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico. In state waters, which are from shore to nine nautical miles in the Gulf, the season will remain open through Oct. 21, closing on Oct. 22. In federal waters, which are from nine nautical miles out to 200 nautical miles, the season will remain open through Oct. 14, closing on Oct. 15. These supplemental recreational red snapper seasons are for 2013 only. The minimum size limit in state and federal waters is 16 inches and the daily bag limit is two per harvester, per day. There is a zero daily bag and possession limit for captain and crew on for-hire vessels. Anglers are required to use circle hooks and dehooking devices when shing for any reef species, including red snapper, in Gulf of Mexico state and federal waters. The requirement to use venting tools in federal waters was removed on Sept. 3. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission will consider adopting similar changes at a future meeting. The intent of these rules is to help conserve shery resources by increasing the chances for a sh to survive after being caught and released.

Laureate Gamma Zeta met on Saturday, Aug. 24 to celebrate Beginning Day at Grassy Waters Restaurant in Pahokee. “Light Up Your Life” is the theme for the coming year. Jeannette Cearley, along with Janis Fliehs, served as hostess for the luncheon and carried out the theme by placing colorful, ashing lightbulb key chains around the napkins at everyone’s seat at the table. Everyone enjoyed being together after a long, hot summer. In the picture to the right, seated in the front row from left to right, are Mary Frances Burke, Nancy Carpenter and Jeannette Cearley. Standing from left to right are Janis Fliehs, President Jeannette Dexter, Jane Thompson, Virginia Walker, Mert Clayton, Liska Hooker and “Girl of the Year” Mary Orsenigo. In the picture to the left, Laureate Gamma Zeta members have chosen Mary Orsenigo as their “Girl of the Year.” She is being presented a gift from President Jeannette Dexter (on the right). Mary served as the Sunshine Committee chairperson. PIONEER PARK ELEMENTARYPioneer Park Elementary School’s newly appointed Professional Development Team began the 2014 Professional Development Day (PPD) sessions with an in-depth training for Pioner Park teachers on the Gradual Release Model through a scaffolded focus-lesson on a story’s setting. The Gradual Release of Responsibility Model, originally coined by Pearson and Gallagher in 1983, is a mode of teaching which presents students with a new concept by having the teacher model successful skills in action (I Do). The teacher then shares the thinking involved in the learning by inviting students into the circle (We Do); next, the teacher steps out of the circle while students problem solve and learn together (You Do Together). Finally, most students are ready to solve and learn independently (You Do). Reading Coach Ruby Ali introduced the “I Do” piece by modeling her thinking through a read-a-loud on “The Boy Who Cried Wolf.” Ms. Ali explained the importance of modeling the skills a good reader uses by speaking through the inner-thought processes in identifying setting (or any other important reading topic the lesson may be focusing on). In the “I Do” segment, the teacher is doing all of the work. Ms. Ali, with her lilting voice delighted teachers with her imitation of the boy excitedly crying out for help because a wolf was eating the sheep. Assistant Principal Denise Hall presented the “We Do” piece. She read sections of “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs.” The pictures and key vocabulary helped Ms. Hall and her teacher students examine key changes in the setting and solve questions dealing with how realistic the setting and its features were and how the setting changed during events in the story. Ms. Hall explained the setting is identi ed in three distinct categories: place, time and environment. As she read, teachers wrote on sticky notes, much as their students would, and shared with each other during a turnand-talk. Then, later with Ms. Hall, the teachers shared setting words and picture details they noticed during her read-a-loud and discussed which category these story highlights fell under. Ms. Ali returned to present on the collaborative “You Do Together” piece. Ms. Ali explained the importance of establishing routines to maximize on-task learning during this section. Teachers shared books on their tables, choosing one to explore while discussing illustrative vocabulary and text features denoting setting. Finally, ESOL Teacher Ms. Lee presented the “You Do” piece. Ms. Lee explained she would review the key features presented earlier in the lesson, as so eloquently modeled and presented by Ms. Ali and Ms. Hall. She further explained with her English Language Learners that she would often end the collaborative piece with volunteer students acting out the word “setting” in a series of brief skits to extend setting de nition and Ms. Hall’s key features, for example, setting a table to establish place, setting a clock to determine time, setting one’s mind to establish mood, setting the music volume as a backdrop to environment. Ms. Lee then introduced a followup piece popular with her students illustrating “my favorite setting.” Ms. Lee invited teachers to do as her students do with her, “Touch your mind, close your eyes and picture yourself in your favorite setting. ... This is a place where you are extremely happy. Maybe it’s Grandma’s house at Thanksgiving or maybe a eld trip to an amusement park. It could be right now or a long time ago. Now, I want you to open your eyes and draw that picture, adding as much detail as you possibly can.” Ms. Lee described her roving conferences and pre-selected questions on setting. She then called on Ms. Wanda Richardson to share her illustration with her peer teachers. Holding her picture, Ms. Richardson explained, “This is me. I’m on a bench. I’m relaxing, I’m by some water. This place is so special to me because there is no stress or worries. The wind is blowing and I’m unwinding and just watching the gators, the turtles or maybe the sh jumping in the water.” Ms. Lorene Woodfolk presented her favorite setting next. Walking among the tables to share her picture, she said, “You see a brick building that looks small, but it’s big in my heart! This is my church, ICOG, Inspirational Church of God in South Bay and Kelvin Johnson is in there directing the music.” Just then, Parent Liaison Mr. Kelvin Johnson asked, “Say what?” Ms. Woodfolk continued, “And this is my bible beside me and these are my hands, praying. I’m releasing all of my worries and stress to the One who takes care of and truly loves me! The setting of my church is special to me because it’s where I go to feel peace and love and joy.” While Ms. Richardson and Ms. Woodfolk spoke, a hush fell over the teachers as they transported us to two tranquil, special scenes.

Affordable Care Act Resources and AssistanceCFO Jeff Atwater and Department of Financial Services offer Affordable Care Act resources and assistance BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonCaspian Terns are the largest terns in the world. These birds are found on all continents except Antarctica. The largest breeding colony in North America is off the coast of Oregon. They regularly breed along the coastal areas across the United States and inland in the western United States, central Canada and the Great Lakes; however, they are considered a rare breeding bird in Florida. These birds nest in close association with Laughing Gulls and can be overlooked in large colonies of other terns, Laughing Gulls or Black Skimmers. During migration they winter along coastlines, large rivers and lakes. This large gull-like tern weighs about 1.4 pounds and measures about 21 inches in length with a wingspan of 50 inches. In ight their body is similar to a mid-sized gull. A similar species, the Royal Tern, has a more slender body and black shaggy crest. Adult Caspian Terns have a black cap, white body and large thick, brilliant red bill with a black tip. Juveniles have a blackish crown. The oldest know wild Caspian Tern lived to be 26 years old. Their call is a raspy heronlike "kowk." The juvenile's begging call is a high pitched whistling "sweeeea" that is heard frequently during migration and in the winter. Caspian Terns favor protected areas in fresh or saltwater habitats near island, beaches or other sparsely vegetated areas with open ground. They scout for sh while ying about 10 yards above the water. Upon spotting a sh, the tern will plunge in the water, usually submerging completely in order to capture their prey. These terns live almost entirely on sh, but will steal food from other birds and occasionally eat the eggs and young of other birds. When they are three to ve years of age, Caspian Terns begin to nest and breed in scattered colonies. They perform courtship feeding on the ground and aggressively defend their breeding territories. Their nest is a shallow scrape in bare sand or gravel lined with shells or vegetation where the female lays one to three pale buff eggs marked with dark blotches. The nesting pair incubates the eggs and cares for the young. The eggs hatch in 20 to 22 days with the downy chicks soon being able to walk with their eyes open. If undisturbed, the young will remain near or in the nest until they are capable of ight when they are 30 to 40 days old; however, the parents will feed them until ve to seven months after edging. Young Caspian Terns appear to have a dif cult time learning to catch sh ef ciently. Many of the young terns do not return to the nesting grounds for several years, preferring to remain on their wintering areas. To discover the best places for birding in inland Florida or around the world, visit the new link to Hotspot Explorer at: http:// ebird.org/ebird/hotspots. Caspian Terns are reported year round in inland Florida.

Rodriguez and Leon to get those fourth-quarter scores. “They are playing hard as a group,” he said. “Most of those guys are going one way, which allows them to be fresh. We rotate William Mercer on defense at times because he gets off the ball so quick. We need to continue getting better as a unit and see where it takes us.” Rodriguez racked up 15 carries for 72 yards and a touchdown, while Leon added 11 carries for 93 yards and a score. Garcia was three-for-three on eld goals, which included the rst two that gave Glades Day a 6-0 lead early in the rst half. He was also three-for-three on extra-point attempts. “It always feels good to get a win over Jupiter Christian,” Pitts said. “That’s for darn sure.” Glades Day, which posted a 36-14 win over Village Academy in Week 2, will play its nal district game at home on Oct. 18 against Boca Raton Christian. If the Gators win that game, they will have won the District 7-2A title for the third consecutive season.

Tenants asked the commission to either pay the marina’s $400 power bill or to contact FPL for alternative solutions. Tenants also complained that the marina has been without water for some time and that the water’s disconnection is a frequent occurrence. Derrek Moore, the city’s manager, explained to the commission and residents that Mr. Gray wants to revisit the terms of his lease of the city’s property. “Mr. Gray approached the mayor with some concerns about the marina,” he said. “He would like to sub-lease the restaurant and bait shop, turn the marina back over to the city, and operate the campground.” According to the city manager, Mr. Gray is three months behind on the rent, but when he contacted Mr. Gray about the rent, he was given an invoice for the upkeep on the bathrooms. Mike Brandt explained to the commission and residents that he has worked at Grassy Waters for the last three weeks and has had an opportunity to review the menu, inventory and other items. He asked the commission for an opportunity to sub-lease the restaurant and get it open as soon as possible before the season begins in November. “I have run various specials since I have been here and feel I have a good idea of what the people want,” he said. “I can use our local resources like hunters and farmers to help keep the costs down, which will keep the prices down. I can hire local help and put paychecks back into the local economy.” Not all residents agreed with the idea of subleasing the restaurant -“But he hasn’t been through the process!” called Captain Tadpole from the audience. The city’s attorney will review the lease to determine if it makes provisions for Mr. Gray to sub-lease portions of the marina with the commission’s approval. Maria Mills addressed the commission asking them to consider giving Mr. Brandt a chance. Mr. Brandt also spoke about sub-leasing the property to other business owners. “It takes 80 to 100 hours a week to run a business properly,” he said. “For one person to run all three is ludicrous because they are stretched so thin.” Sandra Suggs pointed out to the commission that a decision needs to be made as soon as possible because of multiple events coming to the area—events that will bring extra dollars to Pahokee’s economy. In November, approximately 150 former Pahokee High classmates will come to the area for a large reunion. The event has been in planning for months and many attendees have already booked reservations with the campground. Mr. Moore and Gary Brandenburg, the city’s attorney, explained that Mr. Gray is still in a binding lease, so the city’s options are limited. They do plan, however, to research the options that are available to rectify the problem as quickly as possible. Mr. Gray was unavailable for comment.

Dated this 11th day of September, 2013. Barbara S. Butler Clerk of Circuit Court Hendry County, Florida 452442 CN 9/19,26;10/3,10/2013 15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 26, 2013 BY PATTY BRANT Independent News MediaLocal agriculture representatives are raising some concerns about the recent decision by University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) to “repurpose” the IFAS Research Center in Immokalee as a demonstration center. Located on 320 acres on S.R. 29 outside of Immokalee, the IFAS Center in Immokalee opened in 1986 to provide research for agriculturalists in a ve-county area, including Collier, Charlotte, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties. A demonstration center uses applied research and works with the ag community. The Immokalee site will still do “active, relevant work,” Ruth Borger, assistant vice president for IFAS Communications, said. An advisory committee will be named to formulate the center’s new focus. Made up of local ag interests, the board will offer an opportunity for local leaders to carve out a de nitive role for the center. Faculty will be transferred to other research and education centers. Staff at the Immokalee facility will be allotted time to complete current projects, ending operation as a Research and Education Center on Sept. 1, 2014. This will also allow staff and faculty time to nd other employment and relocate if necessary. County Agent Gene McAvoy noted that, over the years, the extension of ce and growers have conducted many activities there. He pointed out that an advisory committee will be appointed to meet with administration and mold the center’s new role, but he did say he felt the extension service may need to take on some managerial responsibility for demonstration trials. He said he is familiar with several of the IFAS extension and demonstration centers and has some concerns about future funding. McAvoy said the IFAS Center in Immokalee has always been important to the area’s $2 billion agriculture industry. Citrus is huge. Vegetables are huge. Livestock is huge,” he commented, adding that “research is essential to keeping our competitive edge.” He voiced concerns over the change to the program, noting that research is the only thing that sets American agriculture apart anymore. “We don’t have cheap labor anymore. We don’t have cheap land anymore. Research is all we have left to keep that edge,” said McAvoy. The model has always been that IFAS research comes up with the information on local ag issues, which it then passed on by way of the extension to the growers. McAvoy is keeping an open mind, but said it’s hard to see how another model could be as effective. The Gulf Citrus Growers Association President Wayne Simmons has similar concerns. The announcement came as a surprise to area growers, catching them off guard. “I thought we would have been involved more” in such a decision, Simmons said. He noted that, recently, the center’s research staff has dwindled to six of its original 12 or so. Still, he recognizes that “we all must be ef cient.” He said the outcome remains “up in the air,” but agricultural folks are open to seeing what happens. Simmons pointed out that the IFAS center has always provided important local research geared to local southwest Florida growing conditions. “I hope we don’t lose the interaction with research,” he said. He also said they’ve been assured the relationship between research and growers will continue. He hopes representatives of all major local commodities from the area will be included in planning the future of the center. The change may save some costs, but is mainly an effort to consolidate duplicated programs, according to Borger. She said it’s an attempt to become more effective with money, personnel and equipment. The IFAS Center in Immokalee has approximately 70 employees on site: seven are faculty members, the rest are graduate students and staff. It’s focus has been on citrus, vegetable, horticulture, entomology, soil and water science and plant pathology research, as well as extension programs. Duplication of services with Lake Alfred, Gulf Coast and Indian River Research and Education Centers is cited as the reason for the change. The UF/IFAS aim is to evaluate programming to “best serve southwest Florida interests.” The ultimate role the Immokalee center will play has yet to be determined. Borger explained that details still need to be worked out. Borger called the move a reclassifying of the site as a demonstration center. A research and education center has faculty in residence, as well as county agents. In the end, she said, the change will probably not even be noticed by the public. “We understand the huge impact on the community.” Borger said. “The goal is to minimize that impact.” The institute hopes to enhance its service to the agriculture community. “We exist to help agriculture growers,” Borger commented and promised, “we will not abandon that.” The advisory committee is to be co-chaired by the UF/ IFAS District Extension Director Charles Vavina and Director of Operations UF/IFAS Hastings Partnership Scott Taylor. Agricultural and community stakeholders will be appointed to create a new vision for the site. This advisory committee is to be chosen this fall, with its recommendations due in the early spring of 2014. John Arthington, director of the Range Cattle and Research Center in Ona, will preside over the center during the transition. In a letter from UF/IFAS, of cials stated, “At a demonstration site, we utilize multiple means to engage clientele in ways that help them learn about the latest varieties, methods, strategies and technologies that positively affect pro tability and sustainability. It is clear from our existing demonstration sites -Hastings and Live Oak -that what makes this process effective is the collaborative spirit and approach that is adopted. ...
