Driver makes it easy for
officer to make DUI arrest
A driver who apparently wanted to go to jail was
arrested Sunday after he pulled up next to an officer
and taunted him by holding up a glass of what ap-
peared to be a mixed drink and then dropped it.
Lt. Henry Hamlin of the Liberty County Sheriff's
Department was assisting a wrecker driver at Coun-
ty Road 12 SOulthi and Ray Kever Road in Bristol
when a white van drove past his patrol car.
The van stopped, made a five-point turnaround
in the highway, headed north and then pulled onto
Ray Kever Road next to Hamlin's patrol car.
Hamlin noted that the driver, Jeffrey A. Stone,
appeared disoriented.' While making eye contact
with Hamlin, Stone picked up a glass off the dash of
his van and then dropped it onto the floorboard.
Realizing that the glass likely held a mixed drink,
Hamlin asked Stone to step out of the van. Stone
complied and then promptly fell.
Stone stated that he had "only had two drinks"
that night. Hamlin noted a strong odor of alcohol
coming from Stone and later found a gallon jug of
vodka and some orange juice in the van.
Stone was charged with DUI and driving while
license suspended or revoked.
Eviction dispute leads to
arrest of park manager
The manager of the Shady Oaks Trailer Park in
Calhoun County was arrested for grand theft and
trespassing in a structure after a witness reported
that he went into a mobile home when the occupant
was not there on Sept. 26.
The witness said James Argyros used his man-
ager's key to enter the residence of Shannon M.
Kepper when she was out, despite the fact that his
tenant had left a note on her front door stating that a
court date was being requested for an eviction hear-
ing. A deputy had talked to Argyros the previous
night and told him not to enter the home.
Argyros was seen loading up two dirtbikes from
the property one of which was leaning beside
the trailer, the other was further out in the yard,
He and another man put the bikes, valued at $600,
in his truck.
A neighbor called Kepper, who arrived at the
scene before Argyros drove away. At her request,
he returned the dirt bikes.
Argyros was then takeninto custody and booked
into the Calhoun County Jail..

TALLAHASSEE The Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles and the
Florida Highway Patrol remind all drivers that
several new and revised traffic laws became ef-
fective Oct. 1, 2005. Among these are:
*The base fine (not including court costs,
which vary by county) for running a red light
is increased to $125 (from $60) and upon con-
viction, will result in four points added on the
dri' her's record. iCh. Law 2005-194):
*If a driver has their license- revoked for a
conviction of driving under the influence and
did not meet the financial responsibility re-
quirements at the time of the offense, the driver
must purchase and maintain a 6-month non-
cancelable liability policy. If the driver also
owns a vehicle, they must obtain a 6-month

The new laws are in addition to the primary
seat belt law for drivers under 21 that was effec-
tive July 1, 2005.
"These changes to the laws are designed to
promote highway safety. Tragically, too many
persons continue to die as a result of traffic
crashes. We encourage drivers to obey all traffic
laws, don't drink and drive and to buckle up,"
said Fred Dickinson, executive director, Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.
Colonel Chris Knight, director of the Flori-
da Highway Patrol adds, "Safety on Florida's
highways is paramount in our mission to en-
force all laws. Drivers must be aware of the
laws and abide by them for everyone's safety.
State and local law enforcement will begin en-
forcing these laws Oct. 1. We urge everyone to
drive safe, use caution and use proper safety

day of action to celebrate and
support hospice .and palliative
care'6aound tie world. This is;
an important global event with
59 countries taking part, from

providing support to people liv-
ing with a.terminal illness, and
their loved ones. It aims to en-
sure that their physical, emotion-
al, and spiritual needs are taken
care so that they can live with
their illness and face death as
comfortably as possible. Around
the \% world. one million people die
every % eek, and it is estimated
that 100 million people could
benefit from basic palliative
care. although the number of
people that have access to it falls
far below this level (re: World

"World Hospice and Palliative
Care Day" provides a wonderful
opportunity to raise awareness
of available care options," com-
mented Steve Campbell, Talla-
hassee Branch Manager of Cov-
enant Hospice. "Far too many
people wait until they are facing
a health crisis to learn about care
options. The time to learn about
end-of-life care is before it be-
comes a serious issue."

they should arrest all those White House energy

Bush is now asking people to conserve gasoline.
That's gotta be tough for a former oil man like
SBush. Telling people not to use gasoline? That's
like Clinton trying to get women to just say no.
SHouse Majority Leader Tom DeLay says he is
innocent of all wrongdoing and is the victim of
a plot by the Democrats. Fox News does too:
they've been spinning this story so hard they had
to give the staff Dramamine today.
John Roberts was sworn in as chief justice of
the Supreme Court, and they said he might get a;
::license plate for a limo that, reads 'Chief Justice
1.' And it could be made by Tom DeLay.
-All in all, 16 Texas oil refineries remain shut down
after the storms. Analysts say it's the worst thing to
happen to the Texas oil industry since George W.
Bush worked in it. JON STEWART
They say President Bush has started drinking
again. Boy, he'll do anything to get Ted Kennedy's
support for that Supreme Court nominee.

A Texas grandjury indicted House Majority Leader

scheme. This is the most embarrassing thing to
happen to the Republicans since yesterday.

rule that no matter how anticipated, sequels are

I feel, was the Ghostbusters II of hurricanes.

To the editor:
I am writing in response to
a high school volleyball game
I attended this week. I have
attended other volleyball games
in support of this school and
have witnessed the number of
students attending. The student
support shown in my opinion is
outstanding. It amazes me that
varsity football players come to
the games and show their support
of fellow athletes. That attitude
was not exhibited when I was in
school. I feel this camaraderie
should be encouraged. These-
students are also in a safe, drug-
My concern is in regard to
the behavior and actions of the
school principal. I witnessed him
singling out two students in front
of fellow football players and
classmates apparently asking them
to not be boisterous. He did this
before the varsity game started.
It was a rival game and extra
expression was to be expected,
but I feel his way of addressing
the potential situation was not
appropriate. Perhaps something
should have been mentioned
over the intercom that morning at
school for the entires6hool body.
My personal opinion is that a
principal should live in the county
where they are emplo\ ed.
It doesn't bother me that for
the last 15 years he has been
employed by a county school
system in which he didn't reside.
I am somewhat amused and upset
that when the two rival teams
play against each other, he tries
to overexhibit authority in front
of his home county.
I say this because last year he
called down students in front of
everyone in the gymnasium when
they were expressing support
for their team at last year's rival
game on the rival court of the
school system where he lives.

To the editor:
In the wake of such horrible

seen so many Calhoun and Lib-

donate so much to displaced hur-
ricane victims, as well as those
victims who stayed to weather
the storms. Calhoun County

numerous hurricane supply drop-
off sights that were bombarded
with supplies from the commu-
nity, CCSO picked up a truck
load of supplies from the Health
Department that were donated
by so many people. Some of
the items donated were diapers,
non-perishable food items, femi-
nine hygiene products, clothes,
plastic utensils, school supplies,
lotions, body spray, disposable
heat pacs, and much more from
Abe Springs Baptist Church;
contact lens solution from Dr.
Edewaard, bars and bars of soap
from Blountstown Rotary Club,
toothpaste and toothbrushes from
Dr. Bontrager, sunscreen from
S.W.A.T, bug repellant from En-
vironment Services at the Health
Department, and much more.
I \n would especially like to thank
Allen and Betty Pitts for all their
help. It makes me proud to be a
part of this caring community

The punt gave the Bulldogs the
ball on the Jay 35. After one first

went to the air and the pass was
completed for a third-quarter
touchdown. The Bulldogs came
up short on the two-point conver-
sion and held a 19-7 lead.
After Liberty missed a long
field goal attempt, Jay fell victim
to another turnover. This time
a second down fumble turned
the ball over to Liberty. The
Bulldogs took advantage of the
turnover. Using a power rushing

Protons, electrons, and neutrons, Oh my!
Protons, electrons,. and neu-
trons are topics that have been
on the minds of some of Mrs.
Peddie's seventh graders for
the past three, weeks. As a new
teacher in the field of Science
Mrs. Peddie was concerned
when she noticed some of her
students struggling to grasp the
structure of atoms. In an attempt
to reemphasize atomic structure
she came up with an efficient
and fun way for the children to-
learn. As an extra credit assign-
ment the students were to choose
an element of their choice and
construct a model of its atomic
structure. The projects ranged
from edible cookies, where can-
dy pieces represented the parts
of the atom, to elaborate models,
where styrofoam balls ranging
in color and size were connected
.Last Friday the students pre-
sented their projects in front
of the class and enjoyed eating
some of them during their edu-
cational enrichment. The stu-
dents were required to point out'
the protons, neutrons, and elec-
trons and give the number pres-
ent of each. The project was op-
tional and will count as an extra
test grade for those who chose to
build models. When asked what
she thought about the project-
Victoria Gann said, "It was a fun
way to learn about elements and
the structure of atoms." Their
enrichment also doubled as a
celebration for .Mrs. Peddie's

An incredible ingredient for cleaner water: Manure
by Sandy Miller Hays,
-Agricultural Research Service
If you've been reading this
column for any length of time, it
will come as no surprise to you
that I love to eat. And, being the
self-sufficient type, I also love
to cook-and one of the things
I love to cook is chicken.
There's so much you can do
with chicken, from homey pot
pies all the way up to Chicken
Cordon Bleu. Crispy wings,
juicy thighs, plump breasts: A
chicken's usefulness approach-
es that of the pig, of which it's
been said that you can "use ev-
erything except the squeal."
Now, thanks to scientists at
the Agricultural Research Ser-
vice, chickens are becoming
even more useful because of
a "byproduct" that once was
thought suitable only for fertil-
izer: manure. The ARS scien-
tists have found a way to turn
ordinary poultry manure into

granules and powders that can
mop up pollutants in water.
The scientists heat the chick-
en manure in an atmosphere,
that's stripped of oxygen (this
works not only for the manure
itself, but also for feathers and
bedding material). This causes
the poultry litter to take on new
qualities, such as a large surface
area and high porosity. Even
more surprising, the charred
material has what's called
"chemical magnetism," which
means it's ideal for attracting
hard-to-capture metals, such as
copper, cadmium and zinc, in
According to the scientists,
poultry char is perfectly suited
for use in wastewater treatment
systems, for scavenging metals
discharged by industrial activi-
ties, and for adsorbing excess
fertilizer nutrients from farms.
That's actually a neat twist on
an old problem. As mentioned
above, poultry manure's role in
life until no%% has been mostly
as fertilizer on farm fields; it's
typically sold for $3 to $10 per
ton as fertilizer.
But if the fields become over-
loaded with the manure, nitro-
gen and phosphorus in the waste
can run off into nearby rivers,
streams and groundwater sup-
plies. That excess phosphorus
can cause algal blooms that ul-
timately steal precious oxygen
from fish and other aquatic or-
ganisms, causing them to die.
It seems almost "poetic justice"
that now poultry litter can play a
role in helping clean up water!
TheARS scientists have been
looking at agricultural waste
materials such as soybean hulls
and nut.shells for years as a
source of activated carbons to
clean up the environment. But
poultry litter is a new area of
And it's not like we're go-
ing to run out of this particular
ingredient anytime soon. Food
animals in this country produce
about 350 billion pounds of ma-
nure each year.
In the ARS scientists' one-
step charring process, the
poultry litter is heated to about
1,300 degrees Fahrenheit. At

that point, some of the inorgan-
ic molecules originally found
in the litter can permanently at-
tach themselves to the carbon's
In poultry char, these mol-
ecules give the .material a nega-
tive charge, making it an ideal
magnet for attracting positively
charged ions from metals like
copper, zinc and cadmium.
Next the scientists want to find
out whether the char can "grab"
other positively charged mole-
cules, such as lead and mercury,
which are considered priority
This '"magnetism" surprised
the scientists, because typical
steam-activated plant-based car-
bons don't have the kind of sur-
face chemistry that lends itself to
interactions between oppositely
charged molecules-- which
means they adsorb few, if any,
metals from water. The scientists
think the secret is phosphorus,
which shows up in the manure
because it's fed to chickens and
turkey\ s as a dietaN. supplement.
So far, the scientists .have
turned poultry litter into pow-
'ders. granules arid pellets to suit
different filtering needs. Waste-
water treatment plants might
use a variety of methods to treat
waste water. For example, pow-
ders from poultry char might be
used in large volumes of metal-
laden water to cling to dissolved
metallic ions, while e columns
containing larger pellets. might
be used where water flow and
drainage are important.
There's good news for farm-
ers,. too: The scientists .say
pii1iltr. char's ability to adsorb
those hard-to-grab metals could.
translate to $1 to $2 per pound
of manure for farmers-a defi-
nite improvement over $3 to
$10 per ton for the manure as
I'd call this a classic case of
"taking the lemons life gives

Mufflers and more to be considered for airboats
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) directed staff to draft -a
new policy that would require
airboats to be equipped with
mufflers. According to FWC's
Maj. Jim Brown, flex pipe alone
no longer is acceptable to help'
reduce sound levels. The final
hearing on the policy will be
at the Commission's Nov. 30
Dec. 2 meeting in Key Largo.
Commissioners also want
staff to hold an additional work-
shop with stakeholders to dis-
cuss implementing a muffler
policy, written' code of ethics'
and guidelines for 'courteous
airboat operation. The FWC al-
ready has installed mufflers on-
all of its airboats and established
guidelines for courteous airboat
The decision to require muf-.
flers on airboats came, after a
presentation today b. Dr. Stew-
art Glegg, a researcher at Florida
Atlantic Unilersity Engineer-
'ing Department, whose group
researched airboat sound and
produced a report on its find-
ings for the FWC. Other experts
have reviewed the report, titled.
S "Measurement and Character-
ization of Sound Generated by
Airboats," to ensure the study
can stand up to public scrutiny
. : aJand provide fully credible. pb-
jective and science-based solu-
tions aimed at reducing airboat
Currently, under Florida Stat-
ute 327.65, all vessels must be
muffled effectively in a reason-
able manner. The law also pro-
vides additional language that
allows individual counties to re-
strict vessel sound to 90 decibels
at 50 feet, but that is not a state-
Both the propeller and the
engine contribute to the sound
airboats produce. At low revolu-
tions per minute (rpmi the engine
produces the most sound, but at
higher rpms the loudest sounds
from the propeller.
This reportsuggests that muf-
flers do reduce airboat sound
levels at moderate' operating
speeds, but even muffled boats
exceed 90 decibels at maximum
throttle. Ho\\ e\er. airboat opera-
tors generally don't run at maxi-
mum throttle for long periods.
Researchers examined sound
levels, produced from differ-
ent styles of mufflers, including
both e\haust and intake manifold
mufflers, and differing propeller
designs, operating speeds, and
distances from an observer. They
believe that each of these com-
ponents, used together, could
provide the needed "incremental

Squirrels not going nuts;
parasite causes irritation
E% en year about this time people call the Florida Fish and Wild-
Slife Conservation Commission (FWVC), alarmed about squirrels that
seem to be going crazy. They report that the\ '\e seen squirrels roll-
ing on the ground. jumping in the air and generally acting as if some-
thing was disturbing them.
But don't \orrm. the 're not crazy. They're likelN hosting a para-
site that causes them some temporary discomfort but generally is
-not fatal. .

as well as large lumps that appear to be cancerous tumors on the
Squirrels' bodies," said Mark Asleson, an FWC wildlife biologist.
"The lumps are. in fact, subcutaneous warbles caused by the larvae
of flies commonly known as bot flies."
In the southeast United States, gray squirrels and other rodents.
and rabbits, are common hosts to these larvae. What happens is that
-the adult female flies deposit eggs in the immediate vicinity of the
hosts'nests or dens where the host comes into contact with the eggs.
The eggs hatch when exposed to sudden increases in temperature or
moisture, such as what occurs when the animal grooms itself.
The larvae then enter the mouth, nose or other body opening and
migrate to a location just beneath the skin where they cut a little
hole so they can breathe and continue to develop. This development
takes from three to seven weeks, depending upon the species of fly
and host, and causes itchy swellings that range from half an inch to
one inch in diameter.
After the larvae emerge from the skin, the lesions: may become
infected, but they normally heal w\ without complication..
"In gray squirrels. lar\ae are most abundant in late summer and
fall, which is why people are seeing the lumps right now.'" Asleson
said. "Most of the squirrels will suffer no permanent effects from
the parasite, how ever a few may occasionally become debilitated by
Therr'is no threat to the safety of pets or humans from the hosts or'
their lar\ ae. The presence of the larvae. ho\w e\ er. often causes hunt-
ers to discard squirrels w ith warbles. This is an unfortunate \aste of
the resource since the edibility of the squirrel meat general is unaf-
fected because the lesions are restricted to the skin. In most areas.

"The best thing to do if you see squirrels exhibiting these charac-
teristics is simply fo lea\e them alone and let nature take its course.
Eventually the.larvae' w ill emerge and the squirrels w ill continue to
.go about the business of being squirrels." Asleson said.

Expiring Conservation Reserve Program contracts can
extend, re-enroll to improve water quality, wildlife habitat
and ranchers can now re-enroll
or extend their Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring in 2007 through
2010, announced Kevin Kelley,
State Executive Director for
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). This effort fulfills the
commitment President Bush
made last year to underscore the
to improving the environment
and protecting the nation's wild-
life habitat, water and natural
"We're offering farmers and
ranchers re-enrollments and con-
tract extensions so they can take
full advantage of the environ-
mental benefits of this program,"
said Kelley. "Re-enrolling and
extending these contracts is part
of the President's plan to fully
use the nearly 40 million acres
of CRP to improve water quality
as well as wildlife habitat."
In order to determine who
might be able to re-enroll or
extend their CRP contract,
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) will use the Environmen-
tal Benefits Index (EBI) that was
in place when the contracts were
first written. The EBI is a mea-
suring system that assigns point
scores to the contracts and then
nationally ranks all CRP land
Several environmental out-
comes factor into EBI point
scores such as improving wild-
life habitat, water quality, and
air quality and. reducing soil
The EBI scores are based
upon a 100 percentile that is
divided into five ranking tiers.
In the first tier, CRP producers
ranking in the top 20 percent of
the EBI can re-enroll their land
in new contracts and farmers
and ranchers with wetlands in
this ranking can receive contract
terms of 10- to 15- years.
CRP producers ranking with-
in the second tier, between the
61-80 percent, can extend their
contracts for five years. Farm-
ers and ranchers ranking within
the third tier, 41-60 percent,
can extend their CRP contracts
by four years. Those ranking in
the fourth tier, between 21-40
percent, can receive 3-year ex-
tensions. And those contracts
ranking in the fifth tier of the 20
percent of CRP producers can
extend their contracts by two

USDA issues final 2004 crop peanut,
upland cotton counter-cyclical payments
GAINESVILLE Peanut and upland cotton farmers will soon
be receiving 2004-crop counter-cyclical payments of $81 per short
ton for peanuts and 13.73-cents-per-pound for upland cotton, an-
nounced Kevin Kelley, State Executive Director for USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA)..
Required by the 2002 Farm Bill, final counter-cyclical program
(CCP) payments for peanuts and upland cotton are made after the
end of the marketing year. The 2002 Farm Bill provides for two
partial 2004-crop CCP payments, one in October 2004 and one in
February 2005. The final weighted average marketing year price for
2004-crop peanuts, which was announced on Aug. 31, 2005, is $378
per short ton, $23 higher than the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland cotton is at its maximum level due to
low market prices that have averaged well below the 52-cents-per-
pound loan rate during the marketing year. Because of these low
prices, USDA is able to determine the final counter-cyclical rate at
Producers who accepted the first and second partial CCP payments
for 2004-crop peanuts received $41.30 per ton and are due an addi-
tional $39.70 per ton. Producers who accepted the first and second
partial CCP payments for 2004-crop upland cotton received 9.61-
cents-per-pound and are due an additional 4.12-cents-per-pound.
The counter-cyclical payment rate is the amount by which the
"target price" of each commodity exceeds its effective price. The ef-
fective price equals the direct payment rate plus the higher of: (1) the
national average market price received by producers during the mar-
keting year, or (2) the national average loan rate for the commodity.
The counter-cyclical payment equals the counter-cyclical payment
rate multiplied by.85 percent of the farm's base acreage multiplied
by the farm's counter-cyclical payment yield for each crop. Target
prices are mandated in the 2002 Farm Bill.
The final 2004 counter-cyclical payment rate for barley is 15-
cents-per-bushel. Those payments were made during July. Produc-
ers will not receive 2004-crop counter-cyclical payments for wheat,
oats and other oilseeds because their 2004 effective prices equal or
exceed their respective "target prices."

You might be able to slide by Santa

You can accept Christ as your
Lord and Savior. Confess your sins to
Christ, trust Him to forgive you, and
obey Him. The Holy Spirit will come

Then you have to learn how to live
a holy life. God will begin to conform

October tips for the Northwest
Florida garden and landscape
October marks the start. of
Florida's dry season. The big
tropical storms are less of a
threat and the afternoon rains
begin to lessen. Autumn is on its
way and cooler, dryer weather is
just around the corner. Because
of the nice weather, October
is a great time to work in your.
landscape and garden.
October is a good time to
prepare beds for the cool season
flowers. As temperatures drop,
plant calendulas, dianthus,
flowering cabbage and kale,
mums, pansies, petunias, Shasta
daisies and snapdragons.
Planting pansies will ensure
a colorful fall garden; however,
avoid planting them while the
weathers warm. Also, be careful
when fertilizing flowering kale
and cabbage. Excess nitrogen
can make them more susceptible
by Theresa Friday,
Agent, Santa Rosa County
to cold damage.
Just about all of the cool
season vegetables can be
successfully started in the garden
during October. Most grow and
produce better when planted now,
rather than planted in the spring.

You can plant seeds of beets,
carrots, kale, kohlrabi, leek,
mustard, parsley, radish, spinach
and turnips. You can also obtain
young plants and establish
broccoli, cabbage, collards,
onions and strawberries.
The recommended planting
time for strawberries might seem
odd to gardeners who are from
other regions. In Florida, we
must use-day-neutral or short-
day varieties and plant them
from early October through the
middle of November. They
grow vegetatively during the
winter and produce berries from
early March until early June.
Varieties of strawberries
that produce well under our
conditions include Camarosa,
Sweet Charlie, Oso Grande and
Chandler. Set plants twelve
inches apart in prepared beds or
plant them in planters, barrels or
in "strawberry jars."
Strawberry plants should
be destroyed after harvest and
replaced with new plants each
fall. They are not grown as
perennials here in Northwest
Florida because of disease issues.
Anthracnose fungus builds
up under our environmental
conditions, and will eventually
cause the plant to decline and

rapid growth, lawn grasses are

lawn with annual ryegrass can

fertilizer will be required during
the winter in order to keep the

the month that most pine trees

make excellent mulch for flower,

needles can be used alone as a

Boyd speaks out against offshore drilling
Allen Boyd (D-Nortli Florida) joined his
colleagues in the Florida delegation to ex-
press their outrage and concern over the
Peterson/Abercrombie amendment that
would lift the presidential and congres-
sional moratoria on natural gas produc-
tion along Florida's Outer Continental
Shelf (OCS). The Peterson/Abercrombie
amendment was included in the National
Energy Supply Diversification and Disrup-
tion Prevention Act, which was passed by
the House Resources Committee.
"Drilling off our coasts would have very
damaging consequences for our beaches,
our marine life and its habitat, and the
broader environment," said Congressman
Boyd. "Additionally, offshore drilling in
the Gulf of Mexico poses a risk to our na-
tion's military readiness by placing severe
restrictions on the ability of the Air Force
and the Navy to train in airspace zones
and naval zones in the gulf. Most Florid-
ians understand that drilling in spectacular
natural places is a dangerous and unwise
practice, and I stand by this belief."
The Peterson/Abercrombie amend-
ment would immediately end the 25-year
bipartisan congressional OCS moratorium
nationwide and open waters off Florida's
coast to natural gas production. Con-
gressman Boyd joins other members of
the Florida delegation in sending a letter
to the Chairman of the House Resources
Committee, Congressman Richard Pombo
(R-CA), expressing their grave concerns
with the Peterson/Abercrombie amend-
"Floridians should feel confident that
no oil rig or gas pipeline is sited off our
shores without our consent," Boyd stated.
"The people of Florida are steadfast in
their desire to maintain the offshore drill-
ing moratorium. The Peterson/Abercrom-
bie amendment directly contradicts with
the widespread belief thaL drilling off our
coastlines would be devastating for Flor-
ida, -and I will work .with my colleagues
in Congress to make sure that this amend-
ment is not included in the energy bill."
Florida Congressional Members come together to uphold offshore

DOH encourages Floridians to make an appointment to get their Flu vaccine today
TALLAHASSEE In prepa-
ration of the 2005 flu season,
Florida Department of Health
(DOH) officials urge Floridians,
especially those 65 years of age
and older, to make an appoint-
ment with their primary health
care provider to receive a flu
vaccine. Since flu season can be-
gin as early as October, it is best
to schedule an appointment now
to ensure you are vaccinated lat-
er in the year.
"The best protection against
flu is to get vaccinated every
year. I strongly encourage Flor-
ida residents to call their doc-
tors now to schedule a flu shot
for October and November,"
DOH Secretary John 0. Agwu-
nobi, M.D., M.B.A., M.P.H.,
said. "Getting vaccinated not
only helps protect you from,get-
ting sick with the flu but it also
helps protect others."
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC), influenza-related deaths
average 36,000 per year, mostly
among the elderly. Influenza re-
sults in about 200,000 hospital-
izations per year.
Prioritization of influenza
vaccine has been implemented
to ensure that enough vaccine is
available for those at the highest
risk for complications from in-
fluenza. CDC recommends that
the following priority groups re-
ceive trivalent inactivated influ-
enza vaccine (TIV) prior to the
end of October whenever pos-
*Persons aged 65 years and
older with chronic medical con-
*Residents of long-term care
*Persons aged two-64 years
\ ith chronic medical conditions
*Children aged six-23 months
*Health care personnel who
provide direct patient care
*Household contacts and out-
of-home caregivers of persons in
high risk population
The majority of flu vaccine
was administered through pri-
vate physicians, clinics, hospi-
tals, long-term care facilities,
community-based clinics and
other public venues. DOH esti-
mates that it facilitated the dis-
tribution of almost 2.67 million
doses of flu vaccine in Florida
over the 2004-2005 flu season.
