UPDATE ON OUR WATER by Patricia Huff Recently a tourist commented that the water in their ren tal unit was yellow and asked if it is this way all over town. Unfortunately, it is; apparently some places worse than other s. However, according to state and local officials, the water is still safe to drink. Our City water comes from wells in Copeland and the well w ater has to be disinfected with some type of chlorination process. However, wh en water is treated with chlorine, there are by-products; two of these ar e Trihalomethanes (TTHM) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5). In January 2007 the City c hanged its potable water disinfection process from free residual chlorination to a chloramines disinfection with the hope that this would lower the TTHM and HAA5 levels. Chlorine also determines the color of the wate r: when the amount of chlorine is cut back in the system (in order to lower the by-product levels), the more discoloration of the water; hence, the yellow color. From January through November 2006 the TTHM results reported were above the Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL). A year ago at th e October 3, 2006, City Council meeting, Scott Lewis of U.S. Water Service s Corp., reported that the yellow water was due to rust that got into the syst em when a filter was bypassed. He also said that the TTHM by-product of chlorine would be reduced by the new treatments. By March 2007 the levels had dropped signi ficantly after the City switched to chloramines However, the quarter ending June 2007 saw the TTHM levels rise again. According to Mark Charneski of the Florida DEP, the ammonium pump failed and the amount of chlorine had to be cut back. This is why we are again seeing the discoloration. The color is a secondary concern; the main issue for our health lies with the reduction of TT HM and HAA5 levels. In an August 1, 2007, letter from the Florida DEP to the Mayor, the City water system generated a MCL violation for Color. This requir es the City to take necessary corrective action and submit a written plan of act ion to the DEP for approval. The plan would identify the steps to be taken to correct the color violation. Gary Heins, Regional Project Manager with U.S. Water, says that they are awaiting results from this month’s analysis and are all working on solutions to the problem. Mayor Sammy Hamilton told the Rapper that the City is continuing to work on the water system to improve its quality. If the current dis infection process does not solve the problem, it may be necessary to either dig th e wells deeper or completely clean the storage tank. This would require applying f or grants but may be the necessary course of action. We feel that this should be a top priority given the length of time it has taken to clear the water and reduce the TTHM levels.

We were just cruising around when my Mom looked up at the sky. She saw something pink, and it had a beak like a flamingo. Then my Mom looked up at the sky again and notic ed it was a flamingo! We were near Lostman’s River. She quickly said “Look up at the sky!” and we all looked up and we saw it too; it was beautiful and I heard long ago that flamingos were here on the islands in the Everglades. We were so amazed because i t was just flying slowly over the bow of our boat! We just kept on looking at it until it finally flew away to a nearby is land. We were all very amazed to see such a wonderful sight. The Sunday after that weekend we were riding on our boat again. We were out by Indian Key, and it was very peaceful. I looked to my right as the wind in my hair stroked in my fa ce. I could not see very well because of my hair so I stroked it ba ck and, as I stroked it, I saw a flipper coming out of the water I was so amazed because it looked like it was coming our way. So I jumped out of my seat and turned back and yelled “Dolphins.” My Mom and Dad looked back, and me too. We all saw the dolphins, three of them. They were going to do a show because they were riding the waves. They were so funny; they ju mped up into the air and swam on their backs. Water sprayed in my face as my Mom and I were yelling happily and my Dad was smiling. Oh, what joy they brought to us. Then when they finished the show, one of the dolphins jumped up so high and waved good-bye with its tail. So we waved back. After that we went to an island and saw different kinds of jellyfish. There were some that were shaped like donuts and more shapes and all of the col ors that there can be. It was weird but we loved looking at them anyway. Dolphins, flamingos, jellyfish – what else can you ask for on a boat ride on a sunny day in the Everglades. Yeah !!!!!!!! Savannah Oglesby is a 5 th grade student at Everglades City School and a regular contributor to this paper. Open House on Thursday, September 13, was enjoyed b y all. SCHOOL ADVISORY COUNCIL REPORT by Patricia Huff Parents, staff, teachers, and community members att ended the first meeting of the School Advisory Council on Tue sday, September 25. School Board member Richard Calabrese was also on hand to respond to any needs the school may have. In the absence of Principal Bobby Jones, the agenda it em relating to school uniforms was postponed until the next mee ting on October 23. Elections for new officers will also be held at that time. Anyone interested in serving on SAC, contact Dana Snider at 695-2561. Vice-Chair Patty Huff discussed the Perfect Attend ance Program that has been ongoing since 2003 but with v ery little increase in school attendance. Rather than awarding the students with a field trip, it was recommended that the students be rewarded on a more regular monthly basis, simila r to the Great Gators program. Pam Drake agreed to take over the after-school Kids Activity Club on Thursdays. Extra -curricula programs with the park services was discussed; i.e. Big Cypress Swamp 6 th grade program, ENP’s Junior Ranger Day and Career Day Rookery Bay. Tim England, from Museu m of the Everglades, presented programs for students and invited teachers to consider a Summer Art Exhibit with stud ents submitting essays about the history of our area, hi storical buildings, or people from the past as well as piece s of art. He also mentioned that next April there will be a cele bration of the 80 th anniversary of the opening of the Tamiami Trail an d invited the school to participate. Mrs. Snider said that Everglades City School had i ncreased to C+ based on last year’s FCAT scores. Mr. Calabre se said that 13 schools in the County had dropped down a gr ade so it was a great achievement to see that our school had increased. He also mentioned that no high school in the County had received an “A”. October is National WALK TO SCHOOL Month For more info, see www.naplespathways.org.

The MULLET RAPPER nrnnrnn SEPTEMBER 28, 2007 email:snookcity@hotmail.com PAGE 7 www.evergladesmulletrapper.com Fishing Report by Bill Lindsay As days get a little shorter and the water temperatures drop a little, large schools of bait fish start to migrate south. Many of these schools have birds over them and it can be productive to cast jigs or spoons around them. Mackerel, jacks and even trout can be taken this way. Keep an eye out for schools of “breeder” redfish moving up and down the coast. At this time of year, they may look like a copper patch moving just below the surface. Soon sheepshead and gag grouper will begin to move into shallow water and can be caught on oyster bars and wrecks. Snook should start to head for the backcountry where water levels start to drop as a result of northeast winds and less rain. Top water plugs are the most fun, but on bright sunny days, try going with jigs or deep running plugs. Through September snook and redfishing has been good. Captain Herb Kehoe reports catching some nice snook and tripletail. Captain Ray Culver brought in a 33” snook. If the water stays warm, we should hook plenty of tarpon early and late in the day. Capt. Bill Lindsay lives in Chokoloskee and has been fishing in the Everglades National Park for 27 years. In 1992 he was Master Angler of the MET Tournament. n Local history aficionado Alvin Lederer has sent us this rare photo of the Watson Place at Chatham Bend taken from the south bank where Hanna Smith lived and some of the cane fields grew. Alvin is looking for information about D.H. Whitton who lived at the Watson Place between 1914 and 1916. If you have any information, phone Marya at 695-2905. S WAMP T ALES by Bob N. Wallace Before coming to Florida, I used to think a hammock was a rope bed hung between two trees in which you took a nap during the summer. In the F lorida Everglades, a hammock is also a cool, shady ground higher than its surrounding are a covered with many hardwood broad-leaved evergreen trees. Some of the trees found in a Florida hammock have quite unusual names, such as gumbo-limbo ( Bursera simaruba ). This unique tree can sprout a new tree from one of its fallen branches and then create a living fence of gumbo-limbo trees. Gumbo-limbo’s have massive trunks two to three feet in diam eter which support huge, irregular branches with spreading, rounded crowns. They becomes leafless during the year but bloom in winter, producing small inconspicuous fl owers composed of three to five greenish petals arranged in elongate racemes tha t are spike-like clusters with each flower on its own stem. The first time I ever saw one of these strange, but beau tiful trees was alongside US 1 in Key Largo. They were red, barkless trees with an abunda nce of shady tree canopies. Some of my Haitian friends have told me the wood is very soft and easily carved and that they make drums from the trunk of gumbo-limbo trees. The gumbo-limbo is also a very useful tree. Resins obtained from its bark smell like turpentine often used to make varnish, water repellent coat ings, glue and incense. Several kinds of birds eat the fruits of the gumbo-limbo. The two larg est gumbo-limbos in the United States are at the St. Mary's Star of the Sea Ch urch in Key West and on Captiva Island near Fort Myers. Down here in Florida, we call the gumbo-limbo tree the “tou rist tree”. Its red bark is mindful of tourists with flaking skin as they begin to pe el from too much sunburn. Look for this unusual tree while you are here in South Flori da. It is worth a picture and serves as a reminder to be careful while you are out in the sun You may go home looking like a gumbo-limbo tree. LOCAL SCENES AT MUSEUM Meet The Artist on Saturday!
