Teens To Be Home By 11
MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- This week, Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon gained the County Board of Commissioners' consensus to proceed with an ordinance to impose a county-wide 11 p.m. curfew on juveniles.
County Manager Wendell Taylor was directed to work with County Attorney on preparation of an ordinance. Taylor reminded the board this new ordinance would have to be approved and adopted by the City of Moore Haven to be in effect. Commissioner Russell Echols objected to the 11 p.m. time. Lakeport resident James Brendel commended Sheriff Whiddon on his effort in "protecting the youth."
Muse Community Objects To Proposed Truck Route
In other items on the meeting agenda, Muse Community Association President Joseph Richter presented the Chairman with the original documentation of the State Division of Forestry "Fire Wise Community" designation for the community of Muse.
Richter also informed the commissioners he had recently traveled the 4.1 miles of Kirby Thompson Road in Glades County and counted 28 potholes, 25 side breaks and 23 cracks. Last Chance Pit, Inc. has asked the county to use the road for dump truck travel to a Charlotte county mine. Richter said that adding 100 trucks a day traveling this road, would be extremely detrimental. He stated the Muse Community Association�s unanimous position was in opposition to the Last Chance mining proposal to get permission from Glades county for road use, unless it was beneficial to Glades County and to Muse.
Last Chance Pit is a newly organized company by two Hendry county residents. The two men have a history of starting companies and going out of business 13 months later. See Last Chance Pit story.
