Frog Light fire burned 18,000 acres

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
Jones, public safety direc-
tor, gave a final report June
12, on the Frog Light fire
that recently consumed over
18,000 acres across the dry
lake bed of Lake Okeechobee
near Lakeport and Buckhead
Ridge. Mr. Jones spoke to the
Glades County Commission-
ers at their regular meeting in
Moore Haven.
All Glades County volunteer

fire departments responded as
well as the forestry division,
water management, neigh-
boring counties and a task
force from Lee County.
"We've got a very good fire
department and Lee County
reiterated that," said Bob
According to Mr. Jones, the
fire began early Monday, May
28 about 300 yards off the
Pearce Canal near Buckhead
Ridge. The Pearce Canal had
not burned since 1998 and
there was plenty of dry veg-

station to fuel the fire. Fire
fighters tried to stop the fire at
Dyess Ditch, but it continued
to be a threat to Robberson
Road in Lakeport.
Mr. Jones explained they
cannot drive upon the lake
bed, so the dike was used as
a buffer between neighbor-
hoods and the fire; however,
the wind-swept blaze scaled
part of the dike near Harney
Pond Canal and caused great
Volunteer fire fighters
worked 24 hours a day for

four days to preserve homes
and businesses. They were in
contact with state authorities
every two to three hours. Peo-
ple with breathing problems
were sent to Maple Grove
Baptist Church, and some
Lakeport residents were told
to be prepared to evacuate if
"They did a tremendous
job about notifying the neigh-
borhoods," said Paul Beck,
commissioner and Lakeport
resident who witnessed the
fire fighters' procedures.

A major tool in control-
ling wildfires is the practice of
backfires which was used in
this case to help contain the
Frog Light fire. The backfire
process eliminates dry vegeta-
tiori that fuels the main fire,
according to officials.
Luckily, the county's muck
removal project at Harney
Pond Canal Recreation Area
provided a buffer because
dried plant debris had been
scraped away and was not

According to Captain

pened about 7:27 p.m. and
was followed by two other
accidents involving big

second truck was blown over
about two miles south of the
city, and a third truck jack-
knifed and traveled across
the median about four miles
south of the city.
The three incidents were
unrelated and no serious in-
juries were reported.
Angie Snow, emergency
management coordinator,

ers mentioned how dark the

Road crews on S.R. 29 near Muse in west Glades County had to reduce the traffic flow

Reed Coppler was held June
6, through June 8 and ended
with a verdict of not guilty.
The incident, which brought

all three talked about Mr. Os-
ceola's depression.
Hurst and Coppler told De-
tective Michael Pepitone that
Ken Osceola went into the

edly emptied the'pellets and

Engine 72 of the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and Medical Services Unit 42 arrived on the
scene when a small, single-engine plane had to exact an emergency landing due to a blown
engine in flight, Friday, June 16. Luckily the pilot of the plane was able to make a safe but
hard landing and there were no injuries

A blown landing gear tire
was a result of an emergency
landing made by the pilot of
a small, single-engine plane.
The aircraft suffered a blown
engine mid-flight over Paho-
kee on Friday, June 16.



blows out
By Mark Carr
PAHOKEE On the morning
of June 16, Palm Beach County
Fire-Rescue's Engine 72 in Paho-
kee was dispatched to a report
of a "sick person" with someone
supposedly lying on the ground
beside an airplane at the Paho-
kee Airport. Engine 72 responded
along with AMR Ambulance's
Med-42 and found a very different
situation. Upon arrival of Engine
72, a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 182, a
small single-engine airplane, was
found situated in the grass just off
the end of the runway. Firefighters
made contact with the plane's pi-
lot and passengers who reported
that the engine had experienced a
critical engine failure during flight.
The aircraft had blown its engine
and parts and oil were spewed
from the plane forcing the pilot
to make an emergency landing.
Without power, the pilot was able
to coast the small plane into Pa-
hokee Airport with a rough land-
ing on Runway 17. The impact of
the landing blew the right tire and
the plane skidded off the runway.
Fortunately, there were no inju-
ries. When the young, shaken up
.passengers were asked how they
were going to get back home,
they replied, "We don't know, but
we are not flying!"

Military spouses

targeted by new scams

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
Military spouses are being
warned by the American Red
Cross about a new identity-theft
scam that targets family members
of deployed troops.
Devorah Goldburg of the Red
Cross said the Red Cross was alert-
ed of the scam earlier this month,
which involves a person with an
American accent calling a military
spouse and identifying herself as a
representative of the Red Cross.
The caller tells the spouse that
her husband was hurt in Iraq and
was medically evacuated to Ger-
many. The caller then says doctors
can't start treatment until paper-
work is completed and they need
Sthe spouse to verify her husband's
social security numbers and date
of birth.
Ms. Goldburg said it is hard to
determine how many spouses
have been targeted by this scam
as there are multiple ways for
spouses to report problems like
However, Ms. Goldburg said
that one confirmed report was
enough for the Red Cross to bring
about action.
"We know that if it happened
to one person, it was probably go-
ing to happen to others and we
wanted to be prudent and alert,"
she said.

Typically, American Red Cross
representatives do not contact
military members or dependents
directly and almost always go
through a commander or first ser-
geant, according to a Red Cross
news release.
Military family members are
urged not to give out any personal
information over the phone if con-
tacted by unknown individuals,
including confirmation that their
spouse is indeed deployed.
In addition, a Red Cross news
release stated that Red Cross
representatives contact military
members or dependents directly
only in response to an emergen-
cy message initiated by a family
The Red Cross does not report
any type of casualty information
to family members. The Defense
Department will contact families
directly about injuries of family
The news release also stated
that it is a federal crime, punish-
able by up to five years in pris-
on, for a person to fraudulently
pretend to be a member of, or
an agent for, the American Red
Cross for the purposes of solicit-
ing, collecting or receiving money
or material.
According to Jim Herrington,
Veterans Service Officer for
Glades County, thus far, there
have been no reports of this scam
in this area.

Guest Commentary

State is increasing reliance on natural gas

By Mike Twomey
This year, we began hurricane
season with a subtropical storm,
then Tropical Storm Barry brought
wind and heavy rains to the state
on June 1. We don't know what
to expect from here, though pre-
dictions are for an active season.
Among other things, hurricane
seasons serve as reminders that
Floridians are vulnerable to po-
tential fuel supply interruptions.
More of Florida's electricity is gen-
erated from natural gas than from
any other energy source.
This gas comes into the state
primarily through two pipelines
from other hurricane-prone states
in the Gulf of Mexico. Storms can
and do create supply interrup-
tions. Most states that are heavy
natural gas users have market-
area storage facilities located
near consumers, downstream of
potential pipeline bottlenecks.
These facilities allow gas supplies
to be stored near customers so
that stored gas can be used to in-
crease peak-day deliverability dur-
ing peak periods or held to use in
the event of a supply interruption.
Currently, the closest gas storage
for Florida is located in Mississippi
and Alabama.
Now that the Florida Public Ser-
vice Commission has declined the
application for a large coal-fired

generation plant, Florida's depen-
dence on natural gas will neces-
sarily be even greater in the future.
However, the PSC will also rightly
expect Florida utilities to manage
gas price volatility. In 2005-2006,
the state's electric customers
paid an additional $2+ billion in
fuel adjustment increases result-
ing from skyrocketing natural gas
prices. It is imperative that Florida
have gas storage within the state
to reduce and manage both sup-
ply interruptions and peak-period
price spikes.
Fortunately, there is at least one
natural gas storage facility current-
ly being proposed for Florida. It is
making its way through the per-
mitting process with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission
(FERC). The Floridian Natural Gas
Storage Project (www.floridian-
gasstorage.com) is proposed to
be sited in Martin County in south-
eastern Florida, near the intersec-
tion of both the major import
pipelines. This storage facility will
be able to store enough natural
gas for power generation to sup-
ply four million homes for 10 to 20
days, if necessary.
The stored gas can also be
used to avoid price spikes during
peak-periods of higher demand.
Since fuel costs are passed along
to Florida consumers by the utili-
ties, Floridians stand to save tens

of millions of dollars a year if
utilities use market-area storage
facilities to buy gas when prices
are cheap to use when prices
temporarily spike because of high
demand or supply interruptions.
As an added benefit, using clean-
burning natural gas to supply
peak-day generation needs pro-
vides significant environmental
benefits by avoiding the burning
of fuel oil on those days.
Better yet, this storage facility
is funded through private invest-
ment which means the $500 mil-
lion development costs will not
be included in the consumer rate
base. Only those utilities contract-
ing for storage service will pay for
storage fees fees which will be
offset through use of lower-cost
natural gas prices during peak pe-
riods. Of course, this means that
only those utilities contracting for
storage will be able to offer the
supply security and price-shaving
benefits to their customer base.
According to a recent study by
Florida Atlantic University (FAU),
an added bonus of this project is
that its construction will expand
Florida's economy. "In addition to
the important economic benefits
that will flow to Florida as a result
of the backup fuel supply that will
be created by the [Martin County]
gas storage facility, the project
will generate positive economic

impacts on income and employ-
ment," said the report written by
FAU's Center for Urban and Envi-
ronmental Studies. FAU projects
an impact of more than $300 mil-
lion dollars due to construction on
just one of the two proposed stor-
age tanks. The facility is projected
to pay more than $2 million in lo-
cal taxes once it is completed.
Floridians must have more con-
trol over their energy future. The
Martin County natural gas storage
project, a well tested, proven tech-
nology used at over 100 other sites
around the country, is one impor-
tant step toward this goal.
Two things must happen to
make this project a reality. First,
the company must receive per-
mits from FERC and state and lo-
cal permitting agencies. Second,
Florida's electric providers must
add to their toolkits by contract-
ing for in-state gas storage now
so it will be available when it's
needed. Florida ratepayers have
everything to gain with the suc-
cessful completion of this project
and much to lose if it fails.
Mike Twomey is president of
Florida Utility Watch, Inc., a con-
sumer advocacy organization that
works to protect Floridians from
high utility bills and unfair busi-
ness practices.

MHHS seeks donation of school reading materials

shows that' one way to attract
more students to reading is to cre-
ate a print-rich environment in the
classroom. Students who have ac-
cess to a sufficient variety of read-
ing materials are more likely to be
motivated to read.
At Moore Haven Junior-Senior

High School, our goal is to make
every classroom a print-rich envi-
ronment. We are asking for dona-
tions of any reading material you
may be finished with and would
like to pass it on to someone who
can put it to good use. We will
accept paperback or hardbound
books, trade books, magazines,

posters, or any other reading ma-
terial. You may drop off your dona-
tions at the front office. The books
and materials will be stored in the
library until our media specialist
has an opportunity to sort them for
appropriateness. At that time, they

# ." .':

will be made available for teach-
ers to place in their classrooms
for student use. We appreciate
the support of the community and
look forward to being able to offer
many reading materials to our stu-
dents when school begins.

Florida bird populations declining

declines for some of the most
recognized and familiar birds in
Florida echo the disturbing find-
ings of a new analysis by the
National Audubon Society that
reveals how local and national
threats are combining to take a
toll on birds, habitat and the envi-
ronment across the country.
"These are not rare or exotic
birds we're talking about," said
Audubon Chairperson and for-
mer EPA Administrator, Carol
Browner, "these are the birds that
visit our feeders and congregate
at nearby lakes and seashores
and yet they are disappearing day
by day."
The national study found that
populations of some common
birds nosedived over the past for-
ty years, with several down nearly
80 percent. In Florida, as in the
rest of the country, the Northern
Bobwhite topped the list, declin-
ing here a stunning 96%. The
dramatic national declines are at-
tributed to the loss of grasslands,
healthy forests and wetlands, and
other critical habitats from mul-
tiple environmental threats such
as sprawl, energy development,
and the spread of industrialized
agriculture. The national study

notes that these threats are now
compounded by new and broad-
er problems including the escalat-
ing effects of global warming and
demand for corn-based ethanol.
"Every species is different, and
their declines are a function of
many factors. But at the most fun-
damental level, it all boils down
to the loss of suitable habitat here
in Florida." said David Anderson,
Executive Director of Audubon of
Florida "These birds need fresh
air, clean water and open spaces.
As do we all."
Species especially hard hit in
Florida include:
Northern Bobwhite, down
9 percent: Bobwhite are compet-
ing with development for upland
habitats like sandhill and pine flat-
woods, and are disappearing as
these ecosystems are turned into
roads and shopping malls.
Clapper Rail, down 81 per-
cent: Dependent on saltmarsh
habitat throughout the state,
this secretive bird's decline has
mirrored the decline in quantity
and quality of Florida's coastal
wetlands. The potential for sea
level rise associated with climate
change has particular implica-
tions for Clapper Rails and other
birds living in tidally influenced

Black Skimmer, down 73
percent: This black and white
seabird lays its eggs in shallow
scrapes on Florida's beaches.
Unfortunately, many beaches are
so heavily visited by beachgoers
that adults are repeatedly flushed
from their nests, leaving chicks
and eggs exposed to extremes of
temperature and predators.
American Kestrel, down 60
percent: This tiny bird of prey is
a.common winter sight in the in-
terior of Florida, perched on tele-
phone wires and other vantages,
scoping for prey. In the breeding
season, north Central Florida's
pineywoods host a dwindling
population, by many accounts
the result of habitat loss particu-
larly the availability of dead pines
in whose cavities the birds nest.
American Bittern, down 53
percent: A common bird of the
winter Everglades, this secretive
resident of freshwater marshes
is tied to the fate of Florida's wet-
lands. In addition to wetland loss,
the Bittern suffers from habitat
degradation due to pollutants and
invasive exotic plants.
"The good news is it's not too
late to stop the decline of these
birds, and in the process, protect

the quality of life for everyone and
everything that lives here in Flori-
da." said Mr. Anderson "We need
to save the wild places that make
Florida special, and the lands we
do develop, we need to develop
Audubon's Common Birds in
Decline list stems from the first-
ever analysis combining annual
sighting data from Audubon's
century-old Christmas Bird Count
program with results of the annu-
al Breeding Bird Survey conduct-
ed by the U.S. Geological Survey.
"This is a powerful example of
how tens of thousands of volun-
teer birders, pooling their obser-
vations, can make an enormous
difference for the creatures they
care the most about," said noted
natural history writer, Scott We-
idensaul. "Thanks to their efforts,
we have the information. Now
all of us from birders to policy
makers need to take action to
keep these species from declining
even further."

bon's Comrrfon Birds in Decline

of Florida high school students
take a proactive approach to
their education by enrolling in
the newly created Student Aca-
demic Summer Camps. These
summer camps were established
for students entering Advanced
Placement (AP) courses in the fall
and are intended to challenge stu-
dents academically and prepare
them for the advanced courses
they will be undertaking in the
new academic year.
"These numbers show us that
Florida's students are ready to
take a proactive position in their
preparation for the tough course-
work that Advanced Placement
courses require," said Commis-
sioner Blomberg. "By readying
our students with knowledge in
the summer, we help them real-

ize their full potential in the fall."
This is the first year the College
Board Florida Partnership and
Department of Education have of-
fered the Student Academic Sum-
mer Camps and, to date, 2,015
students have registered in the 60
locations across the state. Some
camps will run for one week and
others for up to four weeks. Upon
completion, students will be rec-
ognized by their schools in an as-
sembly set for the fall.
"We are delighted with the
results of the student registration
numbers," said Department of
Education Office of Equity and Ac-
cess Director Monica Hayes. "We
will continue to encourage even
more students to take advantage
of this academic rigor through the
Student Academic Summer Camp
program next year."

Teachers also have opportuni-
ties to develop their skills during
the summer months. Advanced
Placement Summer Institutes
(APSI) is an all-expense-paid pro-
gram available through the Col-
lege Board Florida Partnership
that focuses, on subject-specific
professional development op-
portunities. The institutes provide
teachers with the support and
training needed to teach AP cours-
es and to utilize Pre-AP teaching
strategies. Registration numbers
for this year have exceeded ex-
pectations with more than 1,100
teachers registered to attend.
Florida leads the nation in AP
student participation. In 2006,
more than one third of Florida's
public high school students par-
ticipated in AP well above the
national average. That same year,

nearly 20 percent of the public
high school seniors graduated

Summer food service available for lunch program kids

Department of Education (DOE)
is reminding parents that children
who are eligible to receive free or
reduced-price meals during the
school year can also receive meals
during the summer. Through the
Summer Food Service Program
(SFSP), operated by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture and ad-
ministered in Florida by the DOE,
qualified students can continue
to receive nutritious meals during
the summer months when most
schools are closed.

"Proper nourishment supplies
children with the fuel they need
to learn," said Education Com-
missioner Jeanine Blomberg.
"Programs such as the Summer
Food Service Program help to
continue the learning process
year round by providing quality,
wholesome meals when children
are out of school."
The SFSP was established to
ensure that children in needy
areas could continue to receive
nutritious meals during school

vacations that are comparable
to those served throughout the
school year. Established in 1968,
the program is operated locally by
approved public or private non-
profit sponsoring organizations
under annual program agree-
ments with the DOE. Sponsors
receive federal reimbursement
from the DOE to cover the admin-
istrative and operating costs of
preparing and,serving free meals
to children that meet the eligibil-
ity requirements of the SFSP.

Meeting regarding FCAT nets statement from

Education Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg

After the meeting of the Ex-
ternal FCAT Advisory Commit-
tee Meeting, Florida State Com-
missioner of Education, Jeanine
Blomberg issued the following
"We conducted our second
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) External Adviso-
ry Committee meeting in Tampa.
The meeting was both productive
and insightful. It provided the,De-
partment with specific direction
as we work to address issues re-
lated to the 2006 third-grade FCAT
reading results.
"Comments and discussion
from participants were both
candid and supportive, clearly
demonstrating the commitment
of the group to meeting the chal-
lenges that lay ahead. By working
collaboratively with education
stakeholders around the state, in-
cluding school district superinten-
dents, testing experts, education
association representatives and
parents, I believe we will arrive
at an approach that will be in the
best interest of all those who are a
part of Florida's public education
"Anomalies in last year's third-
grade FCAT reading results im-
pact the Department's ability to
calculate school grades, in par-
ticular the student learning gains
component. One of the primary
goals of Wednesday's meeting
was to gather recommendations
on how the Department should
proceed with the calculation of
school grades, which typically
are released during the middle of
June. Since we will not be rescor-
ing last year's third-grade read-
ing results until an independent,
expert review of our conclusions
has been performed, it was im-
portant for us to develop alterna-
tive options for calculating school
grades and present those options
to the advisory committee. The
group consensus centered on the
option of calculating 2007 school

grades excluding last year's third-
grade reading results with provi-
sions that will safeguard schools
from being disadvantaged by this
exclusion. This option will be pre-
sented to the State Board of Edu-
cation next week for their review
and approval.
"The group also supported
a recommendation to the State
Board of Education for a one-year
suspension of the school grades
component requiring at least half
of a school's lowest-performing
students those in the bottom 25
percent to make learning gains.
This proposed change would
need to be approved by the State
Board of Education next week
and would only impact the 2007
school grades calculation.
"However, this temporary
suspension, or any future, long-
term changes, should in no way
be viewed as a lowering of stan-
dards. Currently, the performance
of a school's lowest 25 percent of
students accounts for a quarter
of a school's grade. The perfor-
mance of these students is and
will continue to be a vital part of
the school grades calculation. Ul-
timately, we will bring before the
State Board of Education a recom-
mendation for a new approach to
this component of school grades
that will ensure schools focus
their efforts on their struggling
students, are recognized for out-
standing progress and held ac-
countable through a method that
is fair and reasonable.
"Further discussion revolved
around the effects last year's
third-grade FCAT reading results
would have on calculating the
Adequate Yearly Progress require-
ment of the No Child Left Behind
Act. While several options were
discussed, to which the advisory
committee responded positively,
no decisions can be made until
the Department presents these
options to the U. S. Department of
Education and receives guidance

from the federal government.
"Additionally, we discussed the
subject of teacher performance
pay and tools the Department has
pledged to provide school dis-
tricts to assist in the implementa-
tion of performance pay. Districts
have flexibility in how they have
decided to put performance pay
for teachers into practice; how-
ever, some districts requested stu-
dent learning gains data from the
Department to aide them in this
implementation. The Department
remains committed to providing
school districts with the prom-
ised technical help and assistance
they requested. We will make
data reflecting student learning
gains available to those districts
that wish to use it in their perfor-
mance pay plans.
"Finally, we asked the group
to continue discussion on the for-
mation of an independent, expert
review team to examine our find-
ings and provide their own analy-
sis of the results. We presented
a list of potential experts to the
group along with several pos-
sible scenarios on how the team
could be formed. After a detailed
discussion, it was decided that a
smaller subgroup of the commit-
tee, comprised of data and testing
experts and led by Brevard Public
Schools Superintendent Richard
DiPatri, would be formed to study
the list and make recommenda-
tions to the rest of the advisory
"The FCAT is an important
part of Florida's education system
and I remain committed to keep-
ing this review process open and
transparent. With the continued
assistance of the FCAT External
Advisory Committee and by es-
tablishing an annual, independent
review of all future FCAT results,
I believe we can only strengthen
our nationally-recognized assess-
ment system and inspire confi-
dence in a tool that ensures our
students are learning."

A drought is a period of unusu-
ally dry weather that persists long
enough to cause serious prob-
lems such as crop damage and/
or water supply shortages. About
90 percent of the state's drinking
water comes from groundwater,
bf which approximately 20 per-
rent is from private wells. Many
businesses and homeowners rely
on potable wells and may expe-
hience problems with their water
quality and/or water supply dur-
ing this drought.
What can you do if your po-


table well is affected?
Well dries up

If your well goes dry, con-
tact a local water well contractor
for assistance on how to resolve
the problem. There are several
options including: drilling a new
well, or lowering or replacing
your well pump or drop pipe.
Well water changes
You may detect changes in
the color, odor or taste of your
well water. This may be due to
increased levels of iron, sulfide
gas or salt. Higher concentrations
of these natural elements are less
desirable but these changes typi-
cally do not affect human health.

Are you certain? Do you need a doctor?

Sometimes it's obvious that
you need to call a doctor pro-
fuse bleeding, chest pains and
bther extreme symptoms make
that pretty clear. But there are oth-
er indications that people some-
limes ignore and ignoring signs
pf serious health problem can be
deadly. The Mayo Clinic recently
released a list of indications that a
person should immediately con-
sult a doctor.
S* Unexplained weight loss: A
high percentage of Americans are
overweight. So, it's not surprising
that many people don't consider
Weight loss a cause for concern.
However, losing weight when you
are not dieting or increasing your
exercise routine may indicate a
health problem such as depres-
sion or even cancer.
Persistent fever: A low grade


with Katrina Elsken

fever might not seem like a big
problem, but a fever that lasts
more than a week should be
checked out. A fever can indicate
an infection somewhere in your
Shortness of breath: Dif-
ficulty breathing can be due to
anxiety or panic attacks, or due
to asthma, heart problems or a
blood clot.
Unexplained change in

bowel movements: If you experi-
ence digestion changes, it can be
due to serious health problems
such as diabetes or colon can-
cer. If you have bloody diarrhea
or even mild diarrhea for more
than a week, consult your doctor.
Constipation can also indicate a
health problem. If constipation
lasts more than two weeks, the
Mayo Clinic recommends con-
sulting a doctor.
Mental health changes:
Changes in behavior, mood
swings or disorientation may indi-
cate infection, head injury, stroke,
low blood sugar or a medication
New or more severe head-
aches: Sudden and severe head-
aches may indicate stroke, blood

diately checked by a doctor.
Flashes of light: The sensa-
tion of flashing lights can indicate
the beginning of retinal detach-
Feeling full after eating very
little: Loss of appetite or feel-
ing full after eating just a small
amount may indicate serious gas-
trointestinal problems.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some

SFWMD Board approves

services budget

Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) approved up to
$350 million over three years
for general engineering and
professional services as part
of a comprehensive package
to advance environmental and
capital improvement works.
The action streamlines the de-
livery of engineering services by
authorizing the District to use a
pool of pre-qualified companies
for dredging and bank stabiliza-
tion; surveying and mapping;
dam design and safety; full ser-
vice engineering; environmen-
tal engineering, planning and
permitting; water supply and
water resources; electrical and
mechanical engineering; model-
ing; construction management;
communications engineering
and civil structural engineering.
The District issued a request
for proposals in the 11 primary
disciplines this past December,
receiving 367 proposals that met
its solicitation criteria. Follow-
ing an extensive evaluation, the
District recommended working
with 60 individual firms as prime
contractors for these services.
Over the next several months,
the District will enter into ne-
gotiations with the approved
companies, execute contracts
and begin issuing work orders
that will detail costs and specific
tasks for completion.
"The District is using the ex-
pertise and resources of the pri-
vate sector to improve efficiency,
streamline projects and ensure
continued momentum for proj-
ects like Everglades restoration,"
said SFWMD Procurement Di-
rector Frank Hayden. "The Dis-
trict used a fair, transparent and
consistent procedure, driven by
the law, to evaluate the expe-
rience, knowledge and man-
agement capabilities of all the

candidates. This award process
not only encourages an open
and competitive environment
among all qualified businesses,
large and small, but also ensures
that our communities and the
natural system benefit from our
investments sooner."
The District followed a solici-
tation process governed by the
State of Florida's Sunshine and
Procurement laws. Additionally,
Florida's Consultant's Competi-
tive Negotiations Act requires
that government agencies fol-
low specific procedures for an-
nouncing and procuring certain
professional services and evalu-
ating firms as qualified contrac-
tors. The Act also requires that
the agency negotiate a contract
with the most qualified firms at
fair, competitive and reasonable
In one of the first solicitations
that included the SFWMD's new
Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
program, 168, or 54 percent, of
the 309 participating prime con-
tractors and their subcontrac-
tors are certified by the District
as SBE vendors. In addition, 19,
or 32 percent, of the 60 firms
selected for the 104 prime con-
tracts are SBE-certified compa-
nies; and 81, or 26 percent, of
the participating firms are re-
ceiving work from the District
for the first time.
The District launched its SBE
program last August to allow
more small businesses to par-
ticipate in District contracting.
Firms certified with the District's
SBE program also are added to a
directory that is viewed by other
government agencies and large
contractors in the region.
"The South Florida Water
Management District has taken
deliberate steps to ensure that
the contracts it awards reflect
the diversity of the communities
it serves," added Hayden.

Following certain extreme situa-

has been amended to 90 percent
federal funding with a 10 percent
state and local match. This recent
provision requires the federal
government to cover 100 percent
for all eligible projects under the
Public Assistance Program for the
designated disasters.
FEMA is in the process of co-
ordinating the adjustment to each
project for all eligible disasters.

This will be a seamless process
for the impacted states, requiring
no additional work on their part.
For FEMA's Other Needs Assis-
tance program, under which ad-
ditional aid is provided to individ-
uals and households impacted by
disasters, the state is required, by
law, to provide 25 percent of the
costs. The recent legislation also
requires the federal government
to pay 100 percent of those costs
for these specific disasters. FEMA
will be reimbursing eligible states
for the cost share of the program
already paid to FEMA and any
outstanding bills related to these
events will be canceled.

Mosquito population explosion predicted

plaguing Florida has had one
benefit: a significant drop in the
mosquito population that is usu-
ally seen this time of year. But
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson is urging residents to pre-
pare for that to change. As soon
as the normal rain patterns return,
Florida is likely to see a mosquito
population explosion.
The lack of water has prevented
eggs from hatching. But mosquito
eggs from certain species can be
yery resilient, lying in wait for the
next heavy rain for up to several
years. When the wet weather ar-
tives, all the eggs hatch at once,
creating a huge increase in the
number of pesky pests.
' Mr. Bronson said people need
to keep that in mind and be ready
for a possible onslaught of mos-
quitoes and with them the poten-
tial for mosquito-borne illnesses.
The Commissioner is urg-
ing horse owners to make sure
that their animals are vaccinated
against two of the diseases -
West Nile Virus (WNV) and East-
ern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
"So far there this year there
have been no reports of human
cases of mosquito-borne illnesses
in Florida and we've had five EEE
cases in horses compared with
a high of 207 cases in 2003," Mr.
Bronson said. "We haven't seen
4ny West Nile cases either and I
hope with proper protections we
can continue this trend."
In addition to WNV and EEE,
mosquitoes can transmit St. Louis
Encephalitis and malaria.
Floridians and visitors can pro-
tect themselves against mosquito
borne disease by taking common-
sense steps, including:

Wear long-sleeved shirts and
pants to cover skin and reduce the

Eliminate standing water in
yards, such as in birdbaths, kiddie
pools, old tires and other recepta-
cles. Stagnant water is an excellent
breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
Horse owners are also urged
to check with their veterinarian to
make sure that their animals have
received current vaccinations
against WNV and EEE, and that

these shots are kept up to date.
"Florida's mosquito control
districts have done a tremendous
job with ongoing monitoring of
mosquito populations and taking
action when necessary," Bron-
son said. "But ultimately, it is up
to people to take steps to protect
themselves and their animals from
mosquito-borne diseases."
Across Florida, there are 56
mosquito control districts that
routinely conduct proactive mos-
quito surveillance with specific
and effective research. They have
improved methods of controlling
mosquitoes, improved identifi-
cation of mosquito species that

transmit disease, established pro-
cedures for the early detection of
new mosquitoes, and researched
environmental factors that make
mosquito disease outbreaks more

Swallow-tailed kites arrive to Glades County Fire

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
A true symbol of the deep
South, one of the most stunning
sights in a Florida sky is the Swal-
low-tailed kite in flight. With a
wingspan of up to four feet, the
swallow-tailed is easily identified
with its sharply contrasting colors
and deeply forked tail. Its head
is white as well as its chest and
belly, while the back, wings and
tail are jet black.
This is the time of year when
the swallowed-tails come back,
not to Capistrano, but to Florida,
Glades County in particular where
more of them congregate in the
area of Fisheating Creek than any-
where else in the world.
So far this year many have
been spotted dipping, diving and
dancing over Hardee and DeSoto
Counties as well as Lee, Hendry,
Highlands, Glades and others.
They prefer pine scrubs, mesic
hammocks, mixed forests of
pines and hardwoods, sand hills
and agricultural environments.
Their numbers increase daily for a
period of time and they'll be with
us well into September.
Their antics in air are purely
stunning, especially against a
backdrop of Florida's cobalt sky.
By watching closely and often,
swallow-tails can be seen feeding
in flight and drinking on the wing,
skimming across the surface of
ponds and streams and rivers like
a swallow. Its favorite foods are
various insects, including grass-
hoppers, snakes, frogs, lizards,
and mammals.
With its wings in a flat posi-
tion, kites soar to astounding
heights, then as if poised in flight
trying to decide what to do next,
they often dive rapidly straight
down, then pull out of the dive in
horseshoe fashion, only to repeat
the scenario time and again. No
ballet could be more artistically
choreographed than that of the
swallow-tailed kites. Their ex-
traordinary acrobatic flights set
this bird apart from all others.

The Swallow-tailed kite is a regular visitor to Glades County.

Kites are the most graceful of all
North American hawks.
An extremely agile flyer, kites
often collect sticks with their feet
as they fly, not unlike Ospreys.
They are semi-social birds, at
times sharing the same territory
with their kin.
Both the male and female
kite build the nest, preferably on
a platform of some sort in very
tall pines and cypress trees. They
produce only one brood a year;
both male and female feed their
young. Their nesting season is
from March through June.
Its beauty and
economical benefits
The swallow-tailed kite is ex-
tremely important to Florida,
and again in particular to Glades

County, not only for its inherent
beauty but also for its econom-
ic value. The roosting of.astro-
nomical numbers of kites on
Fisheating Creek every Spring
is a world-class phenomena
that could attract bird watchers
from all over the world to come
and observe these beautiful
birds in their natural habitat.
Bird watching is an activity
on which more money is spent
than on most major sports in-
cluding football and baseball.
The amount of money spent
on bird watching is huge which
could be an economic boon
to Glades County. As we look
for clean ways to preserve the
natural beauty and wonders
of Glades County, we need to
consider the priceless value of

the swallow-tailed kite. And to
think these birds give all and
costs Floridians nothing. This is
part of our natural heritage that
comes to us without cost.
If we want the swallow-tails
to continue coming here we
must- protect hardwood bot-
tomlands from development,
and we must replant and re-
store cut-over acres back to
pinelands. To sustain healthy
populations of this elegant rap-
tor it is absolutely essential that
we maintain these habitats for
After all, where else can we

The Deterioration of the American principle

By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we draw near the 231st
Birthday of our Nation we need
to take a long, hard look at our-
Our nation is being enveloped
by a cancer which is slowly but
surely ravaging its ideals and eat-
ing at its very vitals.
Today in America we have:
1. Policy without principle:
Because it has become neces-
sary for us to deal with godless
countries that have no scruples
concerning right and righteous-
ness, we often find ourselves dip-
ping our banners. We are guilty of

stooping to the level of some of
their infamous tactics in order to
accomplish our aims.
2. Wealth without work: We
are being enveloped by the false
philosophy that we can get some-
thing for nothing. The Bible says,
"The soul of the sluggard desireth
and hath nothing; but the soul
of the diligent shall be made fat
(Proverbs 13:4)".
3. Industry without influence:
America has been attempting to
buy her way and in many instanc-
es the countries she has helped
have turned against her and now
hold her in utter contempt.
4. Comfort without con-
science: Great multitudes, includ-

ing many so-called Christians, are
quick to enjoy their comforts at
the expense of others. They are
not willing to pay their way (taxes
to sustain) to the government,
nor are they willing to share the
burdens of carrying the Gospel of
Christ to the world.
5. Comprehension without
character: Men have grown in
knowledge with each succeed-
ing generation. Knowledge has
increased many-fold; but indiffer-
ence and immorality abound on
every hand.
6. Science without sagac-
ity: Science has advanced almost
beyond our understanding; yet

some of the greatest scientists
have missed the most important
thing of all God and the wis-
dom only He can give.
7. Service without sacrifice:
Such service is half-hearted and is
of little effect.
Take a look at the ten things
that make a pagan nation includ-
1. Death of religious fervor. 2.
The decay of family ties. 3. Inor-
dinate desire for luxury. 4. Cheap-
ness of human life. 5. Practice of
sex deviation and perversion. 6.
Development of pornography. 7.
Increase of drunken reveling. 8.

When the chips are down, the buffalo is empty

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There's nothing like stepping
in a warm cow pie to realize that
some life expe-
riences really
stink. Super-size
it and you have
a buffalo chip
There's a sto-
ry of a little bird
that got caught
in a freeze and Pastor
couldn't fly. He John Hicks
was about .to
freeze to death on the ground
when a buffalo came by and
dropped a big pie right on him.
I don't know about you, but
I can relate to that experience.
Things are going rough and just
when I think things can't get any
worse plop! a big stinky one is
dropped on me.

I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him. But it simply is not true.
Life happens. And sometimes life
can be terribly, terribly difficult,
even for those who love Jesus.
Most of the time we take life
for granted and view it as a given.
And within life there are cow pie
and buffalo chip experiences. For
many it's not so much that we
"have life to live" as that "we have
to live life."
But let's get back to the little
bird. Covered with the steam-
ing buffalo chip up to his neck,
he began to warm up. Feeling a
lot better, the bird began to shift
around, and then burst out ir
song. A passing fox happened to
hear him and plucked him out of
the pile.
The moral of this little tale is
that being dumped on isn't neces-
sarily a bad thing and being pulled
out of a situation isn't always the

best thing for us.
Sometimes we will go through
a difficult experience and it will
make us stronger. Often we'll have
a new appreciation for our family
and friends. More often than not,
we'll grow to rely on the promises
of God. Jesus has told us, "In this
world you will have trouble. But
take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33)
We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we
can know: Life is hard, but God
is good, because life with God is
filled'with promise, and in him
we have a friend who is able to
help us be more than conquerors
in life's situations. (Romans 8:37-
So, what are we to do when
we step in life's cow pies or get
dumped on? We are to go on.
We are to do what we can do.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting

that God, family and friends will
help us. We take inventory and
realize anew the really important
things and people in our life and
embrace them. We turn to God
and trust in His providence.
I can relate well to this anony-
mous quote: "I asked God for
strength that I might achieve; I
was made weak that I might learn
humbly to obey. I asked for health
that I might do great things; I was
given infirmity that I might do bet-
ter things. I asked for riches that
I might be happy; I was given
poverty that I might be wise. I
asked for all things that I might
enjoy life; I was given life that I
might enjoy all things. I got noth-
ing that I asked for but everything
I had hoped for. Despite myself,
my prayers were answered. I am,
among all people, most richly
Be most richly blessed.

Keenagers host dinner and a movie for area churches

By Bobbi Brown

A poster on the door of the
fellowship hall of First Baptist
Church in Moore Haven read:
"Welcome! Since we're planning
to spend eternity together any-
way, shouldn't we get acquaint-
ed?" This was the beginning of a
really fun get-together for senior
groups from area churches. Dan
Currie asked the blessing, and
the evening began with a covered
dish dinner, at which guests were
instructed to sit at any table-ex-
cept one bearing the name of
the church that they attended, in
order to meet seniors from other
churches. Tables were decorated
with a "movie theme" featuring
popcorn in red and white con-
tainers, and a spring bouquet
containing the names of local
churches printed on movie film.
Each person was instructed to
learn two things about someone
at their table whom they did not
know and, as they won a door
prize, they were to reveal what
they had learned about their

Protecting our children, other varieties of inoculation

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
It doesn't take much convinc-
ing to get parents to inoculate
their children .-
against many
of the diseases
that can now ,...
be prevented.
One of the or-
ganizations to
which I belong
has undertaken
a world-wide ef- Rev.
fort to eliminate Samuel S.
a childhood Thomas
disease, polio, that used to strike
fear into the hearts of parents and
children whenever it was men-
tioned. Today, nobody remem-
bers an "iron lung" or fears polio
quite like before.. There are other
diseases that used to strike fear
in our hearts and are no longer a
threat and we have learned how
to provide ourselves with some-
thing within us to protect us from
the plagues that used to ruin lives
or kill not too long ago.
At first, people used common-
sense means for dealing with sick-
nesses not understood; stay away

from crowds or avoid mosquitoes
or wash up. Later, vaccines pro-
vided the means for carrying the
protection within us. The vaccine
goes with us wherever we go, we
are much safer and better pro-
There have been other efforts
to treat problems in communi-
ties by other kinds of "inocula-
tions" and programs to help our
younger citizens in dealing with
other kinds of "sicknesses" that
may assault them. We have be-
come more aware of the effects
of bullying and how it is related to
many of the tragedies that happen
in our schools and communities.
There is no injection to protect
our children against the cruelty of
others but there are other kinds
of "inoculations" available. One
is to teach children that they are
of special worth to their parents,
to their true friends and, finally,
to God. Another is to look at why
people do the things they do; in-
cluding those who do things that
are destructive or mean-spirited.
Many times, such acts reflect the
inadequacies and insecurities
of the aggressor; reflect some-
one who cannot compete on a
level playing field and must pick

someone more defenseless; re-
flect someone who is reacting to
poor circumstances in their own
lives and lashes out against forces
beyond their own control. When
a victim does not have the spiri-
tual or mental resources to cope;
when there is no inoculation
against unwarranted and unde-
served attacks, the damage to the
person accumulates.
I remember telling someone
who was being abused that it was
wrong to tolerate abuse, that they
did not have to tolerate it and that
they were a child of God with all
that it meant. As I made this last
point, I was asked if we could
spend more time talking about
just what it means to be a child of
God and I obliged. I recalled the
Lord telling the crowds when He
gave the Sermon on the Mount
that we are not to be anxious for
our lives and that God takes care
of the birds of the air and feeds
them, then asks "Are you not of
more value than they? (Matthew
6:26)." We considered that He
made us "a little lower than the
angels (Psalm 8:5)" and that we
have a place in God's plan.
When someone says destruc-
tive things or attempts to bully us,

Serin th omnte ot fLk kehbeTusaJn2,20


By MaryAnn Morris

Chickens and their eggs were an
important part of pioneer family's
diets. Hens lay most days, so eggs
were a readily available source of
protein needing no refrigeration.
If you want to keep a few hens in
your backyard, you will have eggs
most days.
Keeping chickens isn't difficult.
When kept in dirty, crowded con-
ditions disease can be a problem
and that is normal with any animal
and people, too.
Most feed stores have chicks for
sale from time to time when cer-
tain breeds are laying, according
to local chicken hobbyist, Richard
"Different breeds lay at differ-
ent times and then they'll stop
for awhile, like during the winter
when there isn't much light or
when the weather gets real warm
and they molt," he said. "Molting
means they lose their feathers and
grow new ones back."
So, just ask a local feed store
when their next shipment is.
Or, you may want to buy your
chickens "sexed," which will guar-
antee (as nearly as possible) that
you will have hens to give eggs
and not half roosters. Roosters are
male chickens and do not lay.
Online sources will sell you
baby chicks or fertile eggs for
hatching, if you have the equip-
Roosters or a rooster can be
kept, if you want to breed your
own replacement chickens, but
let's say you don't. Then you want
to buy "sexed" chickens. This
means the chickens you buy have
been verified as hens. Sexed chick-
ens cost more, but that is the price
of not having a rooster crowing on
bright, moon lit nights or slaugh-
tering unnecessary roosters! But
roosters can be beautiful and you
might want one for his decorative
You can, of course eat any
"extras" and there are books and
online sources to explain how the
deed is done or you can ask some-
one with experience.
Baby chicks need to be warm
and clean, have food and above
all, water. Baby chicks will not
live long without those. Local feed
stores carry "starter" feed they
need for a very small price.
Before you bring them home,
decide where you will keep them.
It should be as predator-proof and
you can make it and big enough to
old the growing chicks, their food
and water with room to spare. Li-
braries generally have books on
raising chickens or can get books
for you. One local backyard chick-
en gentleman who has a number
of small pens and coops, installed
electrified tape about six inches
off the ground around his chicken
"yard" and that keeps the bad guys
away from his flock. (Some people
will keep the tiny, baby chicks in-
doors if they arrive in chilly weath-
er in a large dog crate or even in
a stall shower lined with newspa-
per until they lose their down and
grow out feathers to keep warm.)
What do you feed them?
When grown, chickens are bet-
ter than pigs for eating anything.
Get a pretty bowl or container
of some sort, set it next to your
kitchen sink and throw all your
food scraps into it. Then feed these
scraps to the chickens. Empty the
container daily so as not to breed
germs. Dump the food scraps into
an old metal cake pan or the like
that you leave in the chicken run.
This way the scraps are kept off the
ground and droppings. You can
then easily dispose of any food that
the chickens didn't eat that was
left in the pan. You will find that
chickens hardly refuse anything.
It gives them food variety, too, and
you will feel like you are not wast-
ing food but recycling it. Chickens
are the ultimate omnivores. They
love fresh grass clippings; be sure
to put your garden clippings into
the chicken pen if they don't run
loose during the day, called "free
At about six months, you can
feed them laying pellets. By feed-
ing pellets it's simple to keep track
of how much they are eating with-
out waste.
"A six or seven pound full-
grown hen will only eat a four
ounce can (like a little Vienna sau-
sage can, of pellets a day. If they
don't eat all of that in a day, I'll skip
feed for a day and feed them again
the day after," said Mr. Spivey.
Some day, when they are
grown, if they free-range, you may
come across one or more of your
chickens lying in the dirt, looking

rather, well dead. They are quite
alive. They are bathing, chicken
style. Chickens love to take dust
baths to lie and fluff around in
dust, which helps keep bugs out
of their feathers. It is a shock to
see them lying there dirty and di-
sheveled if you don't know what
they are doing! Chickens can be let
loose in the vegetable garden for
an hour or so where they will hap-
pily eat any bugs. Theywill scratch,
so keep them out of newly seeded
and planted gardens!

Community Profile: Cleveland E. Robinson, II

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Cleveland Rob-
inson, who is currently the Eco-
nomic and Community Develop-
ment coordinator for the City of
Pahokee, has lived in the city for
about a year.
Mr. Robinson is a 2005 gradu-
ate from Fisk University, where he
received his bachelor's degree in
religion and philosophy who re-
located from Miami last year. He
said his work experience and ed-
ucation has helped him succeed
in the Glades area.
Question: Aside from work-
ing with the City of Pahokee,

PB notes



National Clean Beaches Week
(NCBW), which will be held on
June 29-July 5, is a national cel-
ebration focusing public attention
on the role of sustainable beach-
es in American life. Promoted by
the Clean Beaches Council, four
themes of importance to beach-
goers are highlighted during the
week: a healthy environment,
sustainable travel, clean recre-
ation and fitness, and healthy
food choices. In an effort to call
attention to the importance of
healthy beaches in Palm Beach
County, Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful, Inc. (KPBCB) encour-
ages volunteers to go out to their
local beaches after the July 4th
holiday to help clean up after a
busy holiday.
"Many families will be at their
local beach celebrating through-
out the day during the July 4,
holiday," says Lourdes Ferris,
Executive Director of KPBCB.
"Although we highly encourage
individual responsibility and we
ask that people leave the beach
cleaner than when they came,
the reality is that the majority of
litter on our beaches and water-
ways comes from human activity.
Because citizens are attracted to
the beaches for their celebrations,
the litter problem is compounded
during holidays like July Fourth.
We would welcome people who
want to take a little time after the
holiday to bring a trash bag to the
beach to pick up litter, or if you're
a boater to do the same while
you're out on the water."

Does your

A/C need a


With summertime around the
corner, your A/C system will likely
need to work overtime to cool
your home. And because the en-
ergy to run your A/C accounts for
more than 50 percent of an elec-
tric bill the hot summer months,
it's important to make sure your
system is running as efficiently as
possible-before the season hits.
According to FPL, the most
basic and necessary step for any
homeowner is to clean or replace
the air conditioner's filter every
month, which will increase the
system's efficiency and trim cool-
ing costs. If your air conditioning
system is 10 years or older, howev-
er, chances are it is inefficient and
nearing the end of its useful life.
FPL recommends using the fol-
lowing checklist to assess the con-
dition of your existing system and
decide whether it is time to repair
or replace your unit:
Does your system undergo
frequent repairs?
Has your system experienced
a major component failure?
Are you continually receiving
higher than anticipated electric
Is your air conditioning unit
not cooling like it used to?
If you answered yes to any of
these questions and your system
is 10 years old or older, it might
be time for replacement. In fact, in
most cases, it is more cost-effec-

tive in the long run to replace the
entire system than just one part.
Additional benefits of replace-
ment include increased efficiency
and improved indoor air quality.
FPL will help pay for a new,
more efficient unit through its
A/C incentive program, for quali-
fying customers who purchase
a high efficiency cooling system
through an FPL approved inde-
pendent contractor. To determine
if it's time to repair or replace your
system, find a list of approved FPL
independent contractors and cal-
culate potential savings visit www.

are there other activities that
you are involved in?
Mr. Robinson: I do work for
Brother James Group, Inc. What
the group does is hold workshops
and consulting sessions in teach-
ing people self-empowerment
and community relations. I like
to talk to people about what I'm
good at, which is helping to see
people and communities grow.
Question: What is your
greatest accomplishment to
date in Pahokee?
Mr. Robinson: I would like to
say it has to be assisting with the
improvement of the city's im-
age as far as quality assurance,
outreach, community trust and

community-to-government rela-
tions. My favorite hosting activity
was the Hispanic business social
because it acknowledged diver-
sity in Pahokee. I was happy that
15 to 20 business owners and
civic leaders came out and sup-
ported the event, which was the
third Thursday in May. The social
is scheduled to take place every
third Thursday of the month.
Question: Where do you
see Pahokee five years from
Mr. Robinson: No doubt in my
mind, I see Pahokee as a stand-
out community because we have
a lot of potential for growth and
we are growing.

Question: How has your
job helped you character-
Mr. Robinson: It has made me
become as disciplined as pos-
sible. It made me understand the
meaning of perseverance in all
aspects of life.
Question: What are your
summer plans?
Mr. Robinson: I don't know
yet. I'm just here, day-to-day, fo-
cusing on my work. This isn't col-
lege anymore, so no more sum-
mer break.
Question: What do you like
to do for fun?
Mr. Robinson: I like to travel
to places such as Nashville, Tenn.

Summer fun: Keeping cool at t he pool

Lakeport Water Association
2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
We're pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report Is designed to inform you about the quality water and services
we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts
we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our
water source is the Brighton Seminole Tribe, who gets its water form the surficial aquifer. The water is then chlorinated for disinfection.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the office at 863 946 1300. Lakeport Water Association
routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where Indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2006.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible
using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant In drinking water below which there Is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs
allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed In drinking water. There Is convincing evidence that addition of a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there Is no known or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/) one part by weight of analyze to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (ug/i) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCVL) measure of the radioactivity in water.
In 2004, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found no potential sources of contamination near the
wells. Source water assessments are posted at http//www.dep.statefl.us/swapp/.

Lakeport Water Association failed to collect a second round of Lead and Copper samples in 2006, resulting in a monitoring violation. The monitor-
ing violation was resolved through a Consent Order with the Department of Environmental Protection. Lead and Copper results for 2007 have been sat-
isfactory and will be reported on next years CCR.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) Include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As watertravels over
the surface of the land or through the ground, It dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, In some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or.from human activity. Contaminants that may be present In source water Include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock opera-
tions, and wildlife. ....
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff,' Industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum pro-
duction, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by pub-
lic water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants In bottled water, which must provide the same pro-
tection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contami-
nants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by
calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with
cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some eldedy,
and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guide-
lines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Clewiston had a golf course

In the pioneer days, there
was plenty to do around Lake
Okeechobee. The Clewis-
ton Museum has a collec-
tion of the writings of Beryl
Mrs. Bowden wrote for
Clewiston News for many
years. The following story,
transcribed by MaryAnn Mor-
ris, was written about social
activities in Clewiston.
"As the town first devel-
oped and Civic Center Park
was planted in grass, two
practice holes for golfers were
built. Later, three more were
provided, permitting a little
playing while the real course
was being constructed. The
golf course was part of archi-
tect John Nolen's plans for
"An 18-hole course was
designed by Stiles and Van
Kleeck, a St. Petersburg firm
and nine, holes were con-
structed at one time. Many
golfers were attracted to the
town by the excellent, if small,
course. The course opened
for play on Sunday, Febru-
ary 23, 1929, for a fifty-cent
daily fee, or for two dollars
per month, the whole family
could play.
"Gene Sarazen played it a
number of times. His score
of 32 for the nine holes was
a course record, for many
years, though Gene Goghill,
the local pro, equaled the

score later.
"When the Clewiston
News building was con-
structed, the south wall of the
building was used for hand-
ball, since a concrete court
was built adjoining at the
same time.
"An outdoor basketball
court was constructed for the
local school. For a time there
were a few town basketball
teams in the area also. Lo-
cal folks and the P.T.A. raised
money to support them.
"Football appeared in the
1930's when Clwiston High
School Principal Richard W,
Turk introduced six-man foot-
ball and served as coach.
"An outdoor bowling alley
on Central Avenue was popu-
lar for a few years. Later, in-
door alleys were provided in
the building which later be-
came Jaycee Hall and is now
shared by the Senior Citizen
"Clewiston's first skat-
ing rink was built and oper-

ated by the Bembry brothers,
Leon and Gordon, agile and
graceful skaters themselves.
The building has a fine maple
floor and the sport was very
popular. The building has
undergone transformations
as a grocery, then a furniture
store. Its final renovation? A
police and fire station for the
The present rink at the
eastern edge of the city was
built later and is still an enjoy-
able and popular spot.
"Tennis was the earliest
sport for which any facili-
ties were provided. The first
court was constructed on the
lakeside grounds of the old
Clewiston Inn. Later, through
the leadership of the Kiwanis
Club, A community effort
provided two paved concrete
courts in the park immediately
north of the Present Clewiston
Inn. They are there, repaired,
rebuilt and lighted, are still in
use, as are a number of new
concrete courts in Civic Cen-
ter Park. Tennis has remained
a very popular sport.
"In recent years, rodeos
have become popular, but in
the early days local riders on
local horses provided plenty
of excitement with Sunday
afternoon horse races at the
Fort Thompson track attract-
ed huge crowds."

History and heritage
Forty Florida school teachers, shown here during a visit to the Clewiston Mu-
seum, were headquartered at The Clewiston Inn the past week as they studied
the history and heritage of the Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes. Annually the
Florida Center for Teachers, part of the Florida Humanities Council, conducts
an event to increase awareness of our state's culture and heritage.

Lewis and Clark exhibit visits

Clewiston library in mid June

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
iston Library was recently
learned that they have been
selected to receive a very spe-
cial exhibit.
The exhibit is the "Lewis
and Clark and the Indian
Country'.traveling exhibit by
the National Endowment for
the Humanities.
According to Barbara Oef-
fner, Director of the Clewiston
Library, the Clewiston library
was one of twenty-three pub-
lic, academic, and tribal li-
braries in the country chosen

to host this important exhibit.
"I was delighted to learn
about it" said Mrs. Oeffner
"We very interested in the
Lewis and Clark journey" she
explained because the water
played such a major role in
their exploration.
"We believe that this ex-
hibition will showcase the
meaningful interrelationship
that 'the Native Americans
and, Corps of Discovery en-
joyed in 1804," Mrs. Oeffner,
The library will be notified
in mid-June when they will
get the exhibit she said.

The showcase, which will
be at the library for six weeks,
be also shipped to the library,
free of charge. The library will
receive a $1,000 grant, 2,000
brochures, 25 posters and
two banners to publicize the
six programs that will be pre-
sented on various aspects of
the exploration.
"As part of being the Proj-
ect Coordinator, I will be at-
tending the planning work-
shop at the Newberry Library
in Chicago on Sept. 7," added
Mrs. Oeffner.

Tennis stars take top spots at tourney

By Tim Allen
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Community Tennis Association
hosted a USTA-sanctioned tennis
tournament for girls ages 8-12 in
Clewiston the weekend of June
9 and 10. Although the competi-
tion was open to players from
throughout the state, the top tro-
phies stayed in Clewiston. Anessa
Leyva won first place and Issa-
bella Allen (both from Clewiston)
took second place in the Girls-10
Finals. Melanie Allen fClewiston)
won first place in the Girls 12
event and Melissa Libby (Fort My-
ers) taking second place. Macie
Tendrich, of Boynton Beach, was
the third place winner.
Tim Allen, a volunteer with
the CCTA, says that the tennis
program in Clewiston is growing
every week.

"I've been involved with a lot
of organizations over the years,
but the United States Tennis Asso-
ciation has to be one of the most
organized and efficient groups I
have encountered," he said add-
ing, "Every penny of money raised
by this group goes back into pro-
moting and developing tennis in
local communities. I hope that
everyone who has an interest in
tennis or in promoting healthy ac-
tivities for kids and adults in our
community will get involved with
our programs."
To get involved, drop in to the
CCTA's "open" tennis clinic each
Monday evening from 6-8 p.m.
this summer at the tennis courts
on Royal Palm Avenue.
The fun, game-based clinic
is open to all kids and adults. A
similar program is being planned
for the Harlem community if the

interest level is high enough. Call
Tim Allen at (863) 599-2595 for
registration information.
Formal tennis instruction is
also available from Kathy Irey,
a local certified USPTA teaching
professional. She is organizing an
adult women's group for July and
August. Contact her at (863) 233-
9098 for more information.
In other news, four youths
from Clewiston are participating
in the University of Florida Gator
Tennis Camp this summer: Taylor
Beatty, Sarah Espinoza, Anessa
Leyva, and Melanie Allen. These
girls received scholarships from
the United States Tennis Associa-
tion (USTA)-Florida to help young
players in our community im-
prove their game for competitive
high school play in future years.
Also, the CCTA and the City of
Clewiston has received a match-

ing grant from the USTA-Florida
to improve the grounds around
the tennis courts on Royal Palm
Avenue with additional seating for
spectators. The plans have been
approved and groundbreaking
should begin soon.
The Clewiston Community
Tennis Association is a non-profit,
charitable organization (I.R.S.
501(c) 3) with a mission of pro-
moting tennis as a recreational
sport in our community. The
CCTA is supported by generous
