At The Glades County Commission

New Board Members and Complaints About Airfield Noise

MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- (Jan. 10, 2005) The Glades County Commissioners
appointed two new members to the Glades County Building Planning Zoning
Board of Adjustments this week. District 5 commissioner Giesler nominated Ed
Ewers, retired east coast contractor living in Buckhead Ridge, and
District 3 commissioner Beck nominated Sam Griffin, former county

The Commissioners heard Sara (Sally) Johnson Dellar, resident of Fernwood
Lane, voice her complaints concerning noise and invasion of privacy she
suffered because of the business activity at Ken Albee's private landing
strip, which he uses for skydiving club activities just due north of her
homestead property. BCC assigned County Manager Smith, Planning Director
Shatto, County Attorney Pringle, and Chairman Jones to research the
facts on the activities relative to Ms. Dellar's claims. A report is to be
given at January 24 meeting. Concern was expressed that the "club"
privileges may be a front for commercial activity, considering the
advertisements printed about the skydiving. Albee's airstrip is Glades
County's only publicly used airport in the county with ultralight aircraft,
skydiving, and private aircraft uses.
