According to the detective,
every room of the three-bedroom
home was being used to grow
marijuana. Sgt. Harris said they
seized plants ranging in size from
starter plants to over 8 feet tall.
"The whole living room,

were also being used to grow
Sgt. Harris went on to say that
blower units were set up to blow

marijuana plants, under the home
through holes cut in the floor.
"Generally it (the odor) will
seep out the soffit of the home,
or anywhere air can escape,
due to the heat generated by the
lights," explained Sgt. Harris. "In
this case, it was pushed out of the

Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon stands among suspected marijuana plants as they
were found Wednesday night in a suspected grow house in Muse. A GCSO detective said a
Miami man was arrested and charged in connection with the case and is being held in the
Glades County Jaiil under a bond of $900,000.

And since the home sits on 5
acres, the odor had ample time to
dissipate. '
He also said the floor in a
bathroom closet had been cut
out and a 55-gallon plastic barrel
was placed in the hole. The barrel
contained water and was being
used as the hydroponic system for
the alleged growing operation.
Sgt. Harris said the investigation
into this suspected growing
operation actually started about
six to seven months ago.
"But it went stale:, and started
back up a couple of weeks ago,

Pruning Pros
Some of the most serious
pruning problems seem to occur
with trees. Beautiful shade treeS
are often attacked with chainsaWS
with unsatisfactory results. The
pruner may be trying to shape a
tall spreading oak tree into a small
round poof ball, something that
Mother Nature never intended.
Besides looking unsightly,
topping will produce a hazardouS
tree. The many suckers that come
from the ends of the cut limbs
are weakly attached and break in
windstorms. The cut ends rarely
heal properly, inviting rot to enter
into the tree limb or trunk'
Many of these large jobs are
too big for a weekend warrior
to tackle. Some do it yourselferS
may attempt to thin a tall tree
canopy without the proper
equipment and training. This iS
a recipe for disaster. The cost of
a hospital visit or disability will

then be added to the bill from the
tree care professional that will be
called in afterwards.
Again, quality costs. There
are local tree service companies
that can do removals or some
basic pruning jobs, but if you
need a certified professional
arborist, look for a member
of the International Society of
Arboriculture (ISA). These are
trained tree-pros that can safely
do the large jobs. Unfortunately,
their member list shows that the
closest Certified Arborist will be
from Fort Pierce or Vero Beach.

At this time of year, many of
our Florida Yards look like they
belong up North. While we enjoy
a subtropical climate, many
local trees have dropped their
leaves and have exposed their
frameworks. And in many cases,
the rush of spring has come and
gone with tree blooms and new
While deciduous trees are
bare, it is a good time to take a
careful look at how the limbs on
these trees are arranged. You may
notice some problems that need
to be fixed. Today's column will
discus some pruning objectives
that Florida property owners
may have in mind. Our office
will hold a free public workshop
this Tuesday afternoon that show
how you can Prune like a Pro!
Prune with a Purpose
Pruning can help treat and
avoid some certain problems in
your Florida Yard. But before any
blade touches a branch, be sure
to understand WHY pruning is
needed. Dr. Ed Gilman, UF/1FAS
Extension Horticulture Specialist
suggests there are seven main
objectives to have. in mind when
deciding to prune like a pro:

tree t hae a kostaon sre cts
will keep a tree from breaking
apart in storms and resisting pests
and diseases. Because the quality
of a tree may last for 50-100 years
or more, it will take a pruning
plan that begins at planting and
carries on for as long as 25 years.
Provide clearance: Growth can
be directed away from buildings,
security lights, or power lines
by reducing or removing limbs
on that side of the tree. Regular
pruning will be needed to
maintain this artificial clearance.
Reduce shade and wind
resistance: Florida Yards that
want to encourage lawns, ground
covers or shrubs can receive
more sunlight when live foliage
is removed from the crown of a
Maintain health: By cleaning
the crown, especially in medium-
aged and mature trees, dead,
diseased, and rubbing branches in
the crown will result in improved
tree health.

outlived their usefulness. John the
Baptist foreshadows Jesus' teach-
ing when he tells the crowds "Do
not presume to say to yourselves
'We have Abraham as our father'
(Matthew 3:9) because God will
raise up children to Abraham." Je-
sus picks Samaritans and Centuri-
ons to be witnesses to the faith He
teaches. He cautions people about
the "Scribes and Pharisees who sit
on Moses' seat (Matthew 23:2)"
that go through the motions of
faith expecting their same old pat-
terns will bring them salvation and
rewards, but miss the point. One
of the lessons to be learned is that
we can't keep doing the same old
things again and again, and expect
something different to come from

our actions. It has taken somec ob-
servation to understand what our
dog was telling us at mealtime; we
cannot participate in the trauma of
the past and expect it to lead to a
wn nour al para mof r ie wt
us. I met and got to know a wood-
worker who was proud of his shop
and shared it with me one day. Ev-
eryone knew that his wife "went
off" every now and then, and had
to be hospitalized on several occa-
sions. After seeing his shop one af-
ternoon, he said he'd invite me in,
but co Idn't prmnise what Idtfind

been cautioned. I made it a point to
do the best I could. My innocuous
social question might have set off a
chain of past memories of doctor's
inquiries under bad circumstances
or people perceived as prying, or
staff reactions that didn't help. We
spent the next several minutes qui-
etly; I was thankful to God that I did
something different. The message
of the Gospel is that "if the old way
isn't working, do something new "
The God that said, "Behold, I make
all things new (Revelation 21:5)"
helps us make changed when we
realized old ways aren't working
and set about to change things.
He'll be in there; guiding, leading,
pointing the way when we decide
to do something new.

belong s t
feel like chucking it all and delv-
ing into a hulge bowl of ice cream.
But fourth quarter thinking keeps
surfacing. With that, I am encour-
aged to fight thle good fight and
finishl thle course.
H-ow?! By realizing in mny life
what the Ap~ostle Paul realized
in Phlilipplianls 4:12-13j: "I have
learnledl thle secret of beingb conl-
tent in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry'
whether living in plenty or in
want. I can do everything through
Him who gives me strength,
"I can do all things through
Him who gives me strength" has
become my mantra.
Maybe you're in one of those
"fourth quarter" situations right
now. Maybe you have many rea-
sons to slack off or to quit. Maybe
your game has been long and
hard and your strength is giv-
ing out. In such times as these,
remember the Scriptures tell us
"God gives His strength to the
weary and He increases the pow-

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I found it amazing that many
of the college football games
were won in the fourth quarter
this last year. So was the Super
Bowl. Now l'm noticing a num-
ber of the basketball games go
down to the last minute. Many
times victories come from those
who can dig down deep and find
extra energy to put forth in the
closing minutes.
My football coach of former
years called it fourth quarter
toughness building the endur-
ance to finish strong when the
opponents were fading. We had
some grueling practices, and non
school days sometimes had two-
a-day practices. It built stamina,
with the result that many times
our team dominated the final
quarter of the game. Our players
would pump each other up by
crying "Fourth Quarter!" It was a

call to dig down deep and give it
your all in the final quarter of the
The "Fourth
Quarter" wat cry
has been somne-
thing I've carried 'i
with me into -
life. There have
been a number RG. ~
of times I have
felt like stop-
ping but found John
myself thinking, Hicks
"Fourth Quar- -
ter", and dug deep to keep going.
Responsibilities and challenges
often require a lot of persever-
ance, and victory many times re-
quires giving more when you feel
like giving up.
1 find myself in a fourth quarter
situation right now. This has been
a rough year health wise.. Next
month I go in for a right hip re-
placement. I've lost a lot of weight,
but still have a lot of weight yet to
lose. There are times when I just

Read the whole chapter). The
Ethiopian, when he came up out
of the waters of baptism in Acts
8, "went on his way rejoicing"
(8:39). Truly this is an occasion
of great joy for all concerned-
Peter, admonished, "As new-
born babes, desire the 'sincere
milk of the word, that ye may
grow thereby" (I Peter 2:3).
There must be a birth before
there is life, and because they are
alive, little babies come into the
world hungry. We cannot force
them to eat, only supply their
needs and encourage them. It
is a sign of a healthy birth when
that spiritual appetite is there.
Jesus said that we must become
as little children in our attitudes,
our humility, and our openness

wh h nge an hilrs at3er rig'

tew 5 s). Trebwilfl desp( at -
al growth and maturity. But the
birth is only the beginning.
There are other parallels that
could be brought out. However.
this is enough to stir our minds
about these great spiritual
truths. This is not only a figure,
but a great spiritual reality. The
new birth and the new life must
be experienced in becoming,
being, and remaining children
of God. We are no child of God
without this.

Peter 1:23).The Word of God
is the sperm implanted in our
hearts that produces faith, obe-
dience, and the new birth (Ro-
mans 10:17; 10:8-10; 6:17; I Pe-
ter 1:22-23). The new birth has
been accomplished when we
have repented, been baptized
(John 3:5; Acts 2:38, 41; I Peter
1:22-23), and raised to"walk in
newness of life" (Romans 6).
There is travail and pain as-
sociated with birth (1 Thessalo-
nians 5:3). It is no easy ~experi-
ence. This is likewise true with
spiritual birth. All have sinned
and come short of the: glory
of God (Romans 3:23). Facing
up to our sins, acknowledging
them, and genuinely repenting
of them is a painful process. But
hsallepart ofbein wor ra a

sek to "o pehdal"mhee af
ness of sin).
Jesus said, "A woman when
she is in travail hath sorrow,
because her hour is come: but
as soon as she is delivered of
the child, she remembereth no
more the anguish, for joy that
a man is born into the world"
(John 16:21). This is also true
with the spiritual birth. Jesus
said, ."Likewise, I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence of
the angels of God over one sin-
ner that repenteth" (Luke 15:10;

By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
There is an interesting paral-
lel between spiritual and physi-
cal birth. This parallel and com-
parison can be further seen in
life and growing. The New Tes-
tament points out some of these
parallels but not all of them.
Jesus taught that before
we can be children of God we
must be "born again" (John
3:3-5). Not only is this a figure
of speech, it is a spiritual reality.
John uses this mode of expres-
sion in talking about those who
are Christians (1 John 2:29; 3:9;
4:7; 5:1, 4,18, etc.). Also it is
used by Peter (I Peter 1:22-23).
Al houg sPaul on ion ohi I gn

mayrelfer to a birth (1 Cor. 4:1h
figure of Christians being chil-
dren of God by adoption. (Ro-
mans 8:14-17; Gal. 4; 5-7).
There must be conception
before there is a birth. James
wrote, "Of his own will begat
he us with the word of truth,
that we should be a kind of first
fruits of his creatures." (James
1:18). Peter speaks of Christians
"being born again, not of cor-
$-ruptible seed, but of incorrupt-
Sible, by the word of God which
"liveth and abideth for ever" (1

Breaking out in a cold sweat
For both men and women, the
most common sign of a heart attack
is chest pain. However, according
to the AHA, women are more likely
to experience shortness of breath,
nausea and back or jaw pain.
The AH-A advises that even if
you aren't sure~it's a heart attack,
have it checked out. Fast action can
sae ore making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "Lhealthy."

The American Heart Asso-
diation (AHA) wants American
women to "go red" this month,
It's part of a campaign to fo-
cus on the importance of heart
health. According to the AHA, the
focus on women's health is im-
portant because of an incorrect
stereotype that heart disease is a
"men's" disease.
Men and women need to know
the signs of heart attack and the
importance of calling 9-1-1 imme-
diately at the onset of heart attack
symptoms. Every minute counts.
The sooner a heart attack victim
receives treatment, the greater the
chance of survival. Modern rtedi-
cine has a number of treatments
that can be very effective if given
at the first sign of a problem.
Not all of the common symp-
toms of a heart attack occur with
every attack. Sometimes signs go
away and return.

Heart attack '
warning signs
According to the AH-A, "some
heart attacks are sudden and in-
tense--the movie heart attack --
where no one doubts what's hap-
pening. But most heart attacks start
slowly, with mild pain or discom-
fort. Often people affected aren't
sure what's wrong and wait too
long before getting help."
According to the AHA, common
signs of a heart attack include:
Chest discomfort: Most heart
attacks involve discomfort in the
center of the chest that lasts more
than a few minutes,bor kthatt goes
feel like uncomfortable pressure,
squeezing, fullness or pain.
Discomfort in other areas of
the upper body: Symptoms can in-
clude pain or discomfort mn one or

Hendry- Glades Health Fair saves lives

By Glendla Wilson
The Hendry-Glades Com-
munity Health Fair took place at
Hendry Regional Medical Center
on Sunday, Feb. 17 from 10 a.m.
until 4 p.m. Each year, over five
hundred individuals attend the
fair, and the majority receives
free healthcare screenings. Kids
enjoy the bounce house, clown,
snow cones and other free
goodies. Adults take advantage
of the educational exhibits, free.

blood pressure checks, glucose,
cholesterol, and bone density
screenings, and many other free
healthcare services. Many peo-
ple go home with new aware-
ness's of health issues that need
physician referral followr-ups.
What the community may
not realize is that is every year,
someone's life is saved during
this event. On Sunday, two in-
dividuals had to be taken to the
hospital emergency room, as re-
sults of their tests proved ~to be
life-threatenmng.Mrs. Geake, wife

of Dr. John Geake, who practic-
es at River Side Glades Medical
Center in Moore Haven, said, "If
we can save just one life, all the
hard work and preparation is
worth it." In reality, more than
two lives may have been saved
on Sunday because of potential
medical problems that were
identified on that day. The hope
of the Health Fair committee is
that this annual fair will con-
tinue to grow, with increased
attendance :so tiat :more and
more liveswill~be saved.

resentatives to attend the monthly meetings held on the first
Thursday. They meet at the Glades County public library.

the idea that a building has to be
restored exactly as it was when it
was constructed; it only has to be
replicated to the original intent.
If the Cypress Knee Museum
receives the designation as an
historic site, chances for demoli-
tion are less likely. Presently, the
museum is threatened by demo-
lition, as well as the 1923 bistori-
cal downtown buildings on Main
Street Moore Haven, a once thriv-
ing center of commerce where
locals got their haircuts, banked,
and went to the movies. The
board moved to further the efforts
to attain'a place for the Cypress
Knee Museum on the National
Registry of Historic Sites.
In other actions, President Pe-

in fVnsin domoito th pr
posed ethanol plant in Highlands
County, and the Central Florida
20-60 planning commission that
is proposing a large scale land de-
velopment in both Highlands and
Glades County.
The Ewings were also asked
to monitor water levels in one of
the most pristine waterways in

The Board also voted unani-
mously for a resolution, with the
assistance of attorney David Guest

A landmark for more than 60
years in Glades County, the Cy-
press Knee Museum was built by
Tom Gaskins Sr. who lived and
worked on the site across Fish-
eating Creek campground, mak-
ing the famous "turkey-callers"
and unique cypress knee lamps,
clocks, and statutes. Many of the
statues were displayed in the mu-
seum across U.S. 27, on the west

swamp behind the workshop.
Two wooden planks with only
a cable handle led visitors into
a world of natural fragrances,
bird songs and alligator hunting
grounds several feet below. It pro-
vided a close connection with the
natural Everglades and view of
the many statues Gaskins named
for their odd natural shapes.
When the state purchased the
property from Lykes Brothers in
1999, the Gaskins family, who had
lived on the property for more
than sixty years, were evicted
based upon a handshake agree-
ment between Tom Gaskins Sr.
and Charlie Lykes Sr. that was not
acknowledged as a legal agree-
ment. All of the hand-built palm
houses and/workshop were re-
moved to Tasmanian grade near
Venus and are no longer open to
the public. What remains of the
workshop and hand-built struc-
ture is the large "X" on the east
side of U.S. 27.

Harris Friedman has been work-
ing to obtain funds to restore the
museum that is gradually dete-
riorating. However, over the past
two years, funds from the Flor-
ida Historical Society have been
awarded to other state projects.
At the January Board Meet-
ing, SOC voted to pursue funding
again and also to work towards
establishing the museum on the
National *Historic Registry. Ac-
cording to Dearborn, historic
buildings, events, cultural land-
scapes, and people are eligible for
consideration to be placed on the
national registry. A building, not
just because it is old, must meet

speeders. FDOT will be address
ing the issue.
Valerie James, Glades Health
Department, reported that she
had visited child care facilities
to educate parents about unre-
strained child passengers in their
vehicles. She and others had
witnessed that there had been
little improvement over the last
few weeks. Angelica Pena, CTST
chairman, is also a health depart-
mentt official. She asked GCSO

GCSO Sergeant Kim Hill, safe-

Mel Martinez said. "This is only

Senator Martinez's effort
would increase the maximum
criminal sentence for Medicare

years; it would double all civil

fines to $20,000 per claim; and
it would quadruple the criminal
fine to $100,000.
"From $5 million dollar

provider kickbacks, Medicare

tor Mel Martinez (R-FL) success-
fully passed throu h the Senate a
measure aimed at curbing Medi-

to change existing law to double

The senator calls it a "first step"
toward ensuring taxpayer dol-
