Training program a success


By Tracy Whirls
A farm worker job training
project, sponsored by Workforce
Florida has been successful, Bill
Caban of the Workforce Council.
of Southwest Florida told mem-
bers of the Hendry County Eco-
nomic Development Council at
their regular meeting March 9 in
LaBelle.
Mr. Caban said the
drywall/painting course enrolled
10 Spanish-speaking students,
identified through the farm work-


er program, and teamed up with
a drywall contractor, who wAs
willing to transport the men to
the Redlands Christian Mission'
Association for the class, as well
as other participating agencies.
"We held the class on Sunday,
because we didn't want them to
lose the income they were able
to generate through the rest of
the week, so essentially these
men were working seven days a
week during the five-week pro-
gram," Mr. Caban said.
Eight students fully completed


the program. The two remaining
are continuing in an English as a
Second Language (ESOL) course
to enable them to continue their
development and acclimate
themselves to a predominantly
English speaking work environ-
ment.
Mr. Caban said. the training
was done in Spanish, because
many of the participants didn't
have sufficient English skills to
participate in a course conducted
solely in English.
"A lot of these men don't have

not- received any education in
their native country, so they can't
read or write in English or Span-
ish," Mr. Caban said.
Three have already been hired
by drywall contractors at a rate of
$9 per hour, Mr. Caban said.
Already the state director of
Workforce Development is eying
the program as a prototype for
the kinds of short term training
courses best designed to help
farm workers make the transition
from manual labor to skilled


trades. In response to a question,
Mr. Caban said opportunities
exist for other training programs,
either in other construction-relat-
ed industries or perhaps the hos-
pitality industry..
"We've done a little through
the unions and they've shown
some interest," Mr. Caban said.
The biggest challenge for the
program so far, he said, has been

Franchise




fees available


By Tracy Whirls
The Glades County Board of
County Commissioners at their
regular meeting March 8
agreed to use funding from a
franchise fee on waterlines in,
Buckhead Ridge to fund build-
ing a concrete building to
house a. new generator the
Buckhead Ridge Volunteer Fire
Department is receiving from
the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA).
Commissioner Bob Giesler
noted that in 1994, when
waterlines were- installed in
Buckhead Ridge, the county
imposed a'franchise fee on the
water service. Since then, that
fee has paid for the installation
of 65-70 lights in the communi-
-ty, as well -as the $9-per month
electric bill for the service, fire
hydrants, road improvements
at the Homeowners Associa-
tion building and other proj-


ects.
"We've still got $151,000 in
the bank," Mr. Giesler said, not-
ing that the county holds the
monies collected in a fund,
which is then used to fund
services or development
needs.
BHR VFD Chief Tom Vallee
said the fire department is
receiving an 80 -kw generator
through a FEMA grant with the
assistance of Glades County
Emergency Management
Director Ken Howard.
"We need a roof over the
generator," Mr. Valley said,
explaining that the department
will construct a concrete, hurri-,
cane-proof building to house
the generator.

GCBCC expects



new contract


By Tracy Whirls
Moore Haven The Glades
County Board of County Com-
missioners expects to receive a
proposed contract from Waste
Management for operation of
the county's existing landfill
and construction of a proposed
$7 million glass recycling plant
- in time for review at their April

County Manager Jim Smith

mail discussions with Waste

Olive, the company hopes to
have the proposal back to the

initely prior to the commis-
sion's regular meeting
April 12.
Commissioner Russell
Echols, who had asked that the
contract be placed on the com-
mission agenda, said he would
like to see. something concern-
ing the proposal before the
March 28 night meeting, "or
we'll have to look at other
options."

by the timeframe that has been
involved in receiving the con-
tract back from the
landfill/recycling giant.

Pro Steadman Scholarship Fund Cake Auction


The Pro Steadman Scholarship
Fund was started as a community
project in honor of Mrs. Pro Stead-
man. "Pro" was the mother of five
4-H'ers, a leader for 10 years, and
was very active in all sectors of the
4-H program. She believed in the 4-
H organization and seeing it reach
its full potential for bringing fami-
lies together and keeping members
interested in worthwhile projects.


She was diagnosed with ALS (com-
monly known as Lou Gehrig's dis-
ease) in May of 1988. Throughout
her struggle with the disease, she
maintained her interest and
involvement in youth programs as
much as she physically could. She
died in December of 1992, but still
lives on in the hearts of the many
that she influenced.
Mrs. Yvonne Swindle, current


president of the Hendry County Fair
Association, came up with the idea
of starting an annual men's cake
auction at the County Fair to raise
money for a 4-H Scholarship in
honor of Pro. The idea involved
many male "celebrities" from our
local communities and required
them to bake a cake to be auc-
tioned at the Fair. The idea really
took off and with the help of many
generous cake makers and bid-


ders, as well as volunteers and fair
directors, the auction now raises
the money to provide two college
scholarships each year to worthy 4-
H members.
The male celebrity cake auction
will take place Friday, March 18, at
the Hendry County Fairgrounds
beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the enter-
tainment pavilion. Please come out
and give your support.

Children's Week is a statewide
celebration with proclamations-
issued by the Florida Legislature
as well as local governments
throughout Florida. Thousands of
handprints created by children in.
Southwest Florida already have
been sent to Tallahassee for the
event.
"We know that the quality of
child care that children receive

Software tracks immunization records


TALLAHASSEE Florida
SHOTS, the State Health Online
Tracking System for Immuniza-
tions, in its February 21 software
release, made the new feature of
immunization ,reminder/recall
capabilities available to enrolled
private health care providers
throughout the state of Florida.,
"It is imperative that children
receive the correct vaccinations at
the appropriate time to safeguard
their health," says DOH Secretary
John 0. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
'M.P.H. "Reminder and recall mes-
sages are a powerful tool in
improving immunization cover-
,age rates and maintaining proper
vaccination schedules."
"Florida SHOTS has success-
fully piloted the reminder/recall
feature with public providers, and.


we are now making it available to
private providers," says Florida
SHOTS Director, Susan Linci-
come.
The reminder/recall functions
allow providers to select informa-
tion on variety of criteria such as
child's age, vaccine type, and due
States for next.or overdue doses.
Providers then know which chil-
dren have missed a vaccination
and which are due for vaccina-
tions, and can notify parents
accordingly. '
Florida SHOTS was developed
by the DOH Bureau of Immuniza-
tion to be used as a tool to
increase childhood immunization
levels and eliminate vaccine-pre-
ventable diseases. The Florida
Legislature authorized the free
statewide, electronic immuniza-,


tio-n registry. The registry is
accessed via the Internet through
the Florida .SHOTS Web-based
system. System software is updat-
ed regularly with new functionali-
ty to assist health care providers,
the front line of immunization
defense. The new release is the
first of several system upgrades
planned for 2005 at no cost to
providers.
Enrollment in Florida SHOTS is
free. Participating health care
providers must be licensed in the
state of Florida.

Letter to the Editor


Bus stop lighting
needs to be clarified
Dear Editor:
After reading the "Lighting
needed at bus stop article,
which ran in the March 3 issue
of the Glades County Democrat,
we- the constitutionally elected
officers and members of the
board of directors of the River
Oaks Land Owners Association
were appalled to see the article
make this important child safety
issue sound like such a dispute
between neighbors.
Honestly it is a dispute
between neighbors in the
Turkey Creek Subdivision not
the River Oaks Subdivision and
we feel the children of River
Oaks should not be made to pay
for your dispute. Mr. Miller does
live in the Turkey Creek area but
he still owns property in River
Oaks and we feel that he is still
one of our neighbors.
First and foremost let us state
that the issue of providing a light
at the bus stop on Williams
Road and Riverview Drive was
an issue that 25 voting members
of the River Oaks Land Owners
Association felt should be
brought before the Glades Coun-
ty Board of County Commission-
ers. This was not an issue that
Charlie Miller was seeking on his
own, as the article seems to
imply.
Mr. Miller had brought up the
issue of the light at our last asso-
ciation meeting and it was put to
a vote. This issue passed without
a single nay vote and we asked
Mr. Miller to 'present it to the
GCBOCC at their next scheduled
meeting. *
We were appalled to read
your article about the concerns
of two men living in the Turkey
Creek Subdivision a subdivi-
sion which is almost a half a
mile due east of the River Oaks
Subdivision and both these gen-
tlemen do live over a half mile
frorni the corner where we
would like to place the street-
light. We do not see how this
placement could in any way,
shape or form impact their "see-
ing the stars."
After speaking with the trans-
portation department of the
Glades County School Board we
were told that the bus for the
Ortona area does not make any
stops in the Turkey Creek Subdi-
vision, but it does turn around at
the entrance to the subdivision.
It does not make numerous
stops in the Turkey Creek Subdi-
vision as one gentlemen said.
The entrance to the subdivision
is well over a fourth of a mile
from Anchor Lane where the
gentlemen live and once again


we fail to see how this would
keep them from "seeing the
stars" on their end of the subdi-
vision. We have also learned
-since talking to the transporta-
tion department that the bus no
longer goes to Turkey Creek -
now they only pick students up
at the Riverview/Williams stop.
We'd also like to point out
that Riverview Drive is not a
dead end road, but is the
entrance to the River Oaks Sub-
division with four roads turning
off it and numerous houses
along Riverview itself.
Another issue we'd like to
touch on is "Mr. Miller has been
lobbying for street lighting, most
Ortona Community Association
members oppose." So? The
Ortona Community Association
can oppose Mr. Miller all they
want, but they will not be mak-
ing the decision for the River
Oaks Land Owners Association.
As a matter of record we did vote
to seek a MSBU for streetlights in
the River Oaks Subdivision and
approached the Glades County
BOCC about it. We were told we
would have to have 75 percent
of the subdivision sign a petition
for the lights before we could get
the MSBU and we were not able
to get the required number' to
obtain the MSBU.
In the article, it states it would
only cost around $8 per month
*for the county to run the street-
light just how much would it
cost the county to pay for a law--
suit if a child is hurt at that bus
stop? School is only in session
from the last of August to the last
of May, the light would not have
to run for three months and it
honestly wouldn't have to be
turned on until late September
and could be turned off in early
April, so it would only be run-
ning roughly eight months of the
year. Is $64 really too much to
spend to ensure the safety of our
children?
We'd like to say to the two
gentlemen who were so
nnnnOoed tn the lioht we trulv


wish you'd keepkyour dispu

Oaks leave the safety of
children to us and go bac

Here's mud in your eye and God's truth


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"Here's mud in your eye!" is a
traditional toast that comes from
the sport of horse racing. Appar-
ently, the victor of a horse race
would toast the loser, saying
"Here's mud in your eye" as a
reminder that the losing horse got
mud kicked in its face. It can also
be used before the race as a little
tease: "I hope the horse you're
riding finishes behind the one I'm
riding!"
There is a Gospel lesson that
gives us a slightly different take on
"mud in your eye." Jesus and His
disciples encounter a man blind
since birth, and the disciples ask if
it was the sin of this man or of his
parents that caused him to be
born blind. Jesus told them that it
was neither, but that the man was
born blind so that the glory of
God's works could be revealed
through him. Saying this, Jesus
proceeded to show that glory by
rubbing some mud made out of
spit and dirt into the guy's eyes,
and then tells him to go wash it
out. It kind of gives a whole new


connotation to the phrase,
"Here's mud in your eyes."
Here, mud in the eye is not
about losing, but about winning.
It is not about blindness, but
about seeing the truth. And this
story is not really about a healing,
but about how
we can look
and not see,
hear and not
understand,
belong and not
believe for


The man -- the
who received Pastor
sight had no John Hicks
mud in his
eyes. He
washed it out in the pool of
Siloam. It was the Pharisees and
others who were still blinded by
the mud in their eyes the mud
of their refusal to see God at work
in a new way. They just couldn't
accept that this blind sinner
received his sight, or that Jesus
could be of God because He
healed on the Sabbath. It wasn't
the way things had always been


done.
The Pharisees are depicted in
this story like people who pray for
light, but keep the shutters closed
and the curtains drawn. The irony
here is that the ones who can't
see are not the blind, but the ones
who refuse to see the truth when
God puts it right in front of them.
I wonder if we might be more
like them than we'd like to think. I
wonder if we are not sometimes
blinded by assumptions, tradi-
tions, and biases. I wonder if we
are not afraid of the change that is
happening all around us. I won-
der if we don't want our church to
be the last bastion of comfort and
tradition. Let the world change if
it must, but we will not.
"Why was this man born
blind," they asked Jesus? "In
order that the works of God might
be revealed in him." The work of
God was not just the healing, but
also the evidence of the blindness
of those who would not accept
that God could do a new thing,
that God could welcome 'a
stranger, that God could save a
sinner, that God could love a
leper, that God could be made


known in a loaf and a cup, a cross
and a tomb, or even that a man
born blind could help the leaders
of the people see how God was
working in their midst.

How is God working in our
midst? I've asked myself that
question a lot since I came here
almost three years ago. I believe
. that God is calling us into a time of
change as we embrace a God
who is bigger and more diverse
than we can imagine. In order for
that to happen, we need to see
with new eyes. We need to wel-
come the stranger in our midst.
We need to not just tell people
how God has worked in our life,
but also ask them how God has
worked in theirs. And we can't
just be about our church or our
fellowship, but we need to join
together as God's church in the
fellowship of the entire family of
God. And maybe, just maybe, the
accumulated mud that obscures
God's truth will be washed away,
and a little more light will stream
through the windows of our
souls. '


The thin line between being zealous and being a fanatic


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas Ph.D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I served a church next to a
Jewish synagogue. One evening,
one of their members came to my
office and said, "I know this may
sound strange, but would you
come in and turn on a light for
us?" I replied that I understood
the request and would be happy
to oblige.
This was a "Sabbath" (Friday)
evening, and turning on a light
would be work. Work was inter-
preted to be against the com-
mandment: "Remember the Sab-
bath and keep it holy." No work
was to be done, even turning on a
light.
As I was leaving, I was asked
how I' could ignore the com-
mandments, what about eating
pork when it was, so plain that it
was forbidden? I answered that
there are many interpretations,
even among the Jews. Hillel, a lib-
eral rabbi, saw things much differ-
ently than his conservative coun-
terpart Shmmai.
In fact people seem to follow
what makes sense to them. Sim-


ply, before refrigeration and
knowledge about what it was in
meat that could make you sick,
people sobn found that pork was
likely to cause problems. That
was certainly taken as a sign from
God who was saying "No pork!"
Polygamy and
slavery were
okay, but no
pork! .
Later, a new - a;
interpretation .. .
came into
being, but
there were
those who held
vigorously to
what once Reverend
was, as was Samuel S.
their privilege. Thomas
The New Testa-
ment speaks on eating what is
"unclean," Jesus pointing out that
that it is what comes out of peo-'
ple that makes them "unclean"
and not what goes. into them
(Mark 7:20).
Peter becomes hungry in his
travels and there were all kinds of
"reptiles and birds." Peter, as hun-
gry as he may be, refuses to eat,
saying, "No, Lord, for I have never


eaten anything that is comic
unclean." The voice come
"What God has cleanse
must not call unclean."
10:9ff). How does.one in
the commandments? Keep
Sabbath holy may mea
work" or "keeping it h(
another sense.
I had someone point o
we shouldn't work on th
bath and I asked if they t
what I did was working

consider Sunday as the Sa
respecting it as Saturday al
some reason. We celebra
day as a Resurrection Day,
Easter" and take "Sabbath
sense of "seventh" and per
another origin rooted in tI
of "desisting (from work)."
The Lord, who asked

s, ayin What about eating and work-
do, ing? Paul puts it eloquently when

FWC releases best lakes for crappies fishing in Florida


te in Three things you should know
River about black crappie fishing before
our you go: How to pronounce their
k to name; why some people call them
"papermouths;" and where you
find the best places to catch them.
rely, First of all, crappie rhymes with
ison choppy. It ,does not rhyme with
dent snappy.
iyers Secondly, try to set the hook like
surer you would with a bass when you
diller have a crappie on the line, and
f the you'll find out all about that "paper-
ctors mouth" appellation.
Finally, the Florida Fish and
bom Wildlife Conservation Commis-
f the sion's (FWC's) freshwater fisheries
actors biologists have done all the work to
gton find Florida's 10 best crappie fish-
if the ing holes for 2005. Dedicated pro-
ctors fessionals that they are, FWC biolo-
gists also have gone to the trouble
of actually fishing for black crappie
in these fishing holes, so they could
develop the most effective tech-
niques and share them with the
rest of us here in the Fishing Capital
ition. of the World.
part- Incidentally, if you live in south
Chief Florida, change "black crappie" to
s not "speckled perch" throughout this
manuscript, and you'll understand
a little better. It's the same fish dif-
ferent name.
One thing freshwater fisheries
biologists (the FWC just calls them
"fish heads" for short) have figured
out about black crappie is that just
about any advice you can come up
with about catching them can be
absolutely right or absolutely wrong.
It just depends on where you are
and what the fish feel like doing.
For instance, some experts will
,' o tell you that in warmer months,
*pa- crappie gather around deep under-
'mu- water structures that will show on
ofit electronic fish finders, which is true
d in sometimes. It's also true that you
Is.of can catch them by slow trolling or
ma" drifting.
"Use live bait," some experts
insist.
"Nah, use small jigs," others say.
"Use one hook per line....No;
use tandem hooks....No, don't lis-
ten to them....Fish for crappie at
night with lanterns and Hydro
Glow, 12-volt light fixtures," and on
and on goes the advice from the
scientific experts and others that
know such things. They are all cor-
rect sometimes and wrong some-
times depending on what day it is.
In no particular order, the best
crappie-fishing holes in Florida this
year are:
Lake Okeechobee -A lake
this big can't help but produce slab-
sized crappie and plenty of them.
People who know this lake suggest
crappie anglers fish in the Kissim-
mee River/Fisheating Bay/Taylor
Creek areas on the north end of the
lake. Also, jigging along the grass
lines and dropping minnows into
S holes in the vegetation work well. If
you're more in the mood for a laid-


back-style of fishing, try drift-fishing
around Little Grassy, Eagle Bay
Island and Kings Bar.
Lake Istokpoga (hear
Sebring) Winter is the best time
to catch crappie in this 28,000-acre
wonder. From November through
April, anglers troll open water with
Hal-Flies, doll flies, spinner jigs and
Napier jigs to locate schools of
crappie and then pounce on them
like ugly on a baby 'possum. When
the water temperature stabilizes
around 65 degrees, crappie move
into bulrush and spatterdock along
the shoreline to spawn. There's a
trick to catching them when that
happens. Move slowly through the
vegetation in three to six feet of
water and fish with a crappie jig
around the vegetation.
Lake Kissimmee (south of the
city of the same name) A few
years ago, you wouldn't have seen
35,000-acre Lake Kissimmee on.
this list, but ...boom...things
changed about three, years ago,
and crappie fishing here has been
excellent ever since. Anglers are
catching big ones too. Some of
them throw the 10-inchers back,
and say things like "That one was
tiny." To catch your share of crappie
in this lake, fish with minnows and
jigs along the grass line and off-
shore. The deeper holes off the
grass lines are good spots too.
Lake Marian (east of Lake
Kissimmee) -This is the lake to fish
when you want to catch lots of
crappie, and you don't care if
they're not the biggest fish you've
ever seen. They're big enough at 9
inches or more, and they're packed
into this 5,739-acre lake, so it's not
hard to find them with minnows,
small jigs and such. Troll, drift
fish.. .whatever works for you, and
go home and have fresh fish for
dinner. Then, just for fun, call
somebody up north, who is in the
middle of a blizzard, and tell him
about your fishing trip.
Tenoroc Fish Management
Area (near Lakeland) This 14-
lake complex is one of the best
crappie fishing holes in the country,
and that's a fact. It's open to the
public four days a week. If you
want to fish in this angler paradise,
it's besLt to call ahead and make a
reservation. The number is (941)
499-2421. There is a 10-inch mini-
mum size limit and a 10-fish bag
limit in this fish management area.
Fish with Missouri minnows,
Beetlespins, tiny curly-tail and tube
jigs or Hal-Flies when you want to
have the fishing experience of a life-
time at Tenoroc.
Orange Lake (between
Gainesville and Ocala) The
water level on this lake is back up
after being down for years. As a
result, crappie fishing is back up.
Crappie were biting in open water
through October and November,
and they'll start again when the


weather warms up this spring.
Crappie in this lake like to hit jigs
and minnows.
Lochloosa Lake (northeast of,
and connected to, Orange Lake) -
FWC biologists poured some inten-
sive lake management talent into
this 5,500-acre body as Mother
Nature raised the water level back
to what it needs to be, and crappie
-have responded. Fish around the
lily pads in the southeast and north-
west parts of the lake and in the
narrow connection to Little Lake
Lochloosa when you're after crap-
pie. Also, the maiden cane patches
are good spots when crappie get
ready to spawn.
Lake Monroe (near Sanford)
The FWC's habitat-restoration
wizards have been tuning up this
9,400-acre sweetie-pie. since the
late 1980s, and they've got her real-
ly purring. Until July 1, this lake's
black crappie have to be at least 12
inches long before anglers can.
keep them, but there's plenty of the
qualifiers to go around. The mini-
mum size limit will go away July 1.
Big crappie go for small jigs,
Bream Killers, Hal-Flies or Beetle-
spins. Missouri minnows and grass


shrimp also work.
Lake Jessup (south of San-
ford) You can wear yourself out,
catching crappie on this 10,000-
acre honeyhole. They run a little
smaller than the crappie you find in
other lakes in this part of central
Florida, but there are zillions of
them looking to get caught on min-
nows by anglers who drift-fish in
the middle of the lake and near Bird
Island. Lots of crappie also hang
out in the Soldier Creek area and
the north end of the lake, where it
connects to the St. Johns River.
Lake Talquin (west of Talla-
hassee) Think about it. This
8,800-acre reservoir is just outside
Tallahassee: It's where the FWC's
top brass goes fishing, so you know
they're going to make sure this
baby doll gets all the attention it can
use. Is it any surprise the state
record 3-pound, 13 /4-ounce black
crappie came out of Lake Talquin?
This lake has lots of submerged
stumps and whatnot, so you don't
want to go hot-rodding around it in
a boat, but if you want to catch
some nice crappie, and you're will-
ing to abide by the 10-inch mini-
mum size limit, you'll love it here.

Loans available to local businesses


ORLANDO The U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA)
reminds businesses owners
throughout Florida that Economic
Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) are
still available to small businesses
that were economically impacted
from Hurricanes Charley, Francis,
Ivan and Jeanne.
"Small businesses that want to
apply for economic injury losses
still have time to apply for assis-
tafice even though the physical
damage deadline has passed,"
said SBA Disaster Area Director,
Michael C. Allen. "Small business-
es do not need to have physical
damage to be eligible to apply for
these loans."
Small businesses may apply
for a loan of up to $1.5 million if


they have suffered substantial
economic injury in the aftermath
of last year's historic hurricane
season. These working capital
loans may be used to pay fixed
debts, payroll, accounts payable,
and other bills that could have
been paid had the disaster not
occurred. These loans are not
intended to replace. lost sales or
profits. The interest rate on these
loans is 2.9 percent, with a maxi-
mum term of 30 years. The SBA
determines the amount of eco-
nomic injury, the term of each
loan and the payment amount,
based on the financial circum-
stances of each borrower.
The deadline to apply for these
loans varies by declaration. For
Hurricane Charley the deadline is

Florida unemployment estimates revised


The state's January 2005
unemployment rate of 4.3 per-
cent is down from the revised rate
of 4.6 percent in December 2004
-and down 0.6 percentage point
from 4.9 percent a year ago. The
state's rate of job growth in Janu-
ary (3.5 percent) was double the
national rate (1.7 percent). Addi-
tionally, the revised estimates for
2004 that resulted from annual
benchmarking of data show a job
market in Florida that was notably
stronger than previously estimat-
ed.


In January 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural employ-
ment grew by 261,300 jobs over
the year, growing at a rate of 3.5
percent.
With newly revised data avail-
able, it is evident that Florida's
manufacturing sector turned the
corner into positive growth in
April 2004 and has remained posi-
tive since then. The sector as a
whole added 4,000 jobs over the
year while the higher-paying
Durable Goods Manufacturing
sector added 6,500 jobs over the

CHS Tigers split clay diamond action


By Mark Young
An explosive third inning
- allowed the Clewiston High School
'Tigers all the runs they would need
to topple Ft. Myers Dunbar March
4, by score of 4-3.
Brent Johnston slapped a two-
run hit, with Jarred Combass and
Stephon Duploy each knocking in a
run to account for all four runs.
Kale Mitchell had Clewiston's other
key hit to get himself into scoring
position..,
Clewiston had Bear Adams on


the mound and the young hurler
went the distance in picking up
seven strikeouts and only allowed
two hits.
"This was a big district win for'
the team," said Tiger head coach
Vance Johnston. "We had good
pitching by Bear Adams and good
defense throughout the game. We
got key hits at the right time."
The Tigers clawed out a 4-3 vic-
tory over Dunbar, but didn't have
the claws to get past Avon Park, as
the Red Devils held off the Tigers
for a close 3-2 victory March 7.


The two squads traded runs in
the first inning, Avon Park clicked
off one run in each of the fourth
and fifth innings, and the Tigers
would add a run in the bottom of
the seventh, but came up just short
of pulling off the come from behind
victory.
Johnston went I-for-3, as did
Kyle Kerstein to lead the Tiger
offensive efforts, with both sluggers
picking up doubles on the night.
Nick Raiola worked four innings,
picked up five Ks and allowed, two
runs on his watch. Mitchell came in


to work the final three innings in
relief, allowing one run while pick-
ing up a trio of Ks.
"Both pitchers did a good job in
this game," said Johnston. "We
had our chances to win the ball
game. We. just did not hit the ball
real well. When we did have a
good hit, it was at someone."
The Tigers have since played
Moore Haven, Bishop Verot, and.
LaBelle and are back in action
March 18 against North Port on the
road at 4 p.m.

Fishfinder helps make roadmap to an underwater world


By Ken Cook
My goal as a professional angler
has always been helping others
enjoy the sport of fishing so that we
can be stronger in our efforts to pre-
serve the fishing environment.
Throughout my 20-plus years of
professional fishing I have discov-
ered one sure way to accomplish
this goal.


Any guesses? The one constant
answer is to ,help others become
more productive anglers.. In return
they are more compelled to do
what they can to protect the
longevity of the sport.
One of the best ways to teach
people to become more produc-
tive on the water is to make sure
they are familiar, with their equip-
ment.

Familiarization with equipment
can save time. Instead of spending
all your time looking for fish you'll
spend more time catching them. A
fish finder is the perfect example.
. When most people take to the
water their fish finders' sole func- -
tion is to reveal the location of fish.
But in reality a fish finder is so much
more. A fish finder when prop-
erly used acts as a roadmap to a
fish's environment.
Fish are affected by underwater
structure such as trees, weeds,
rocks, and drop-offs, current, sun-
light and wind. The ability to view
these structures can make a big dif-
ference in your anchoring deci-
sions and techniques along with
your bait selection. Mud and vege-
tation on the bottom absorb and
scatter the sonar signal, which
reduces the strength of the return
echo. Harder bottoms of shale,,
rock or coral easily reflect the sonar
signal. The difference is easily iden-


tifiable on your screen. A soft bot-
tom shows as a thin line across the
screen while a hard bottom shows
as a wide line on the sonar's
screen.
The absence of fish in an area
does not mean anglers should dis-
miss the types of underwater struc-
tures that are visible on the screen.
During competition I always
make sure to note where I have
found structures that would make
good fish habitats. As the course of
the tournament roles on I will often
revisit these spots when on the pre-
vious day no fish were visible.
Changes in water temperature,
times of the year and a fish's life
cycle all play an important role in
identifying the best underwater
locations.
The next time you are on the
water take time to identify under-
water structures. If you do you'll be
one cast closer to landing the big
one you've seen in your dreams.

SIMPLESECRETS TO LOWER YOUR UTILITY COSTS su o Lkseeechobee ThaMursd Mh0




SIMPLE -SECRETS To LOWER YOUR UTILITY COSTS rjw~m-0:


If you are like many home-
owners, you likely dread 'the
arrival of bills. Especially the
water, gas and electric bills it .
feels like you have no control
over them, so you just sigh and
write the check. It's time to
take charge of your bills. By,
just paying a little more atten-
tion to your household habits,
you can cut your utility costs.
Sure, you'll never .eagerly
anticipate seeing utility bills
in the mailbox. But you just
might be smiling at your sav-
ings.

WATER
Turn off the water in the
sink or shower while you're
brushing your teeth or shav-
ing.
Wait for a full load before
running the dishwashing
machine or washer.
Take showers instead of
baths to cut down on the use
of hot water. "


Take a 10-minute shower
instead of a 20-minute one.
In the yard, put sprinklers
on a timer and water in the
morning to minimize evapora-
tion.
Fix leaky faucets or run-
ning toilets.

ELECTRICITY
Turn off appliances and
lights that aren't in use.
Replace bulbs with lower-
wattage ones if possible.
Install ceiling fans. Then
you can decrease air condi-
tioning use in the summer and
circulate heat in the winter.
See if appliances like air
conditioners and furnaces are
energy efficient.
Remove the lint from the
dryer filter after every load..
That will let in more heat and
dry clothes faster.
Plant tall shrubs and bush-
es. You'll get shade in the sum-
mer and won't have to blast

Insulate places where out-
side air comes in, like win-
dows or doors.

GAS
Turn off the stove or oven
a few minutes before food is
done. Residual heat will finish
the cooking.
'* The oven door should be
closed tightly. If you can't shut
it, get it fixed.
Cook several dishes in the
oven at once to save heat.
Reduce the temperature
on your gas heater.
Don't heat closets, and

lengthening days to bring on
-new growth. What greens up
and what stays brown may be a
result of delayed damage from
last year's hurricanes. Horticul-
turalists all over Florida are wait-
ing to really see what happens as
a result of last year's unprece-
dented hurricane season.
SIf you are tired of the
bombed-out, blown-away look,
and need some suggestions on
what to plant that will make it
through the next one, consider
searching out one of the hottest
-home gardening books in the
Sunshine state. Pam Crawford, a
landscape -designer from Lake
Worth, has recently produced a
;new book entitled StormScap-
-ing, and she is making the
Sounds talking about what land-
scapers have found out about'
planting for hurricane survival.
Ms. Crawford is' trying to
make two key points to con-
sumers with this book:
Remove any dangerous
trees that might threaten your
home during a hurricane.
Plant strong trees in clumps
so that they can protect your
home and garden in.high winds.


"I am hearing about tons of mis-
takes made by homeowners and
communities in replacing trees
that fell in the hurricanes. Many
south Floridians are replacing
Ficus with laurel oaks, which are
just about as bad. One lady I
know replaced her Tabebuias
with queen palms, which fall.
just about as easily."
Her book is based largely on
anecdotal reports of what land-
scape plants were damaged by
the storms. Her new book is a
first effort in Florida to put
-together a colorful, readable
summary of what didn't work. In
some cases, there is not a lot of
information on certain kinds of
plants, and the effects of the
storms on these plants may not
be as clear. And if a plant tended
to survive Charley, Ivan, Frances
or Jeanne, this book offers a ten-
tative suggestion of what may
work in future storms.
Here are some of the conclu-
sions highlighted in this new
book:
On the whole, palms toler-.
ated winds better than shade
trees. However, not all were


erally did well (Bald Cypress,
Live Oak), others did poorly
,(Laurel Oaks). Likewise some
exotics like Crepe Myrtle and
date palms were survivors, while
other like Ficus were generally
damaged.
The three worst trees were
Australian Pines, Weeping Figs,
and Laurel Oaks. If they were left
standing in your landscape, care-
fully evaluate if they will be a
hazard in future storms.
StormScaping is full of color-
ful photos showing the good and
the bad, and has capsule sum-
maries on how suitable land-
scape plants are for our Florida
Yards. Sixteen UF Extension
Agents contributed their obser-
vations and knowledge about
the storms of 2004, and nearly 50
other botanical gardens, horti-
cultural groups, and emergency.
managers contributed their
knowledge and experiences to'
this book, including yours truly.
While in some cases there is
insufficient information to make
a. definite, recommendation con-
cerning particular plants, pro or
con, this book is a wonderful

Project helps shape future of forests


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that his
department is launching a major
planning project to help shape the
future of forests in Florida. /
"How are our forests going to
continue to provide the wood,
clean water, recreation and diver-
sity of wildlife 25 years from
now?" Mr. Bronson is asking.
"And what do we want them to
look like 25 years from now?"
I As a result of development,
hurricanes, wildfires, insect and
disease outbreaks and the
.demand for forestry products;


Florida's forests today comprise
only 14 million acres down from
more than 20 million acres in the
1930's. Officials estimate that the
figure will decline to 12 million
acres by the year 2030.
The planning effort that is get-
ting underway will focus on how
the state manages what are
inevitable changes rather than
merely reacting to those changes.
Division of Forestry (DOF) offi-
cials have already taken the first
step, assessing the present condi-
tions of forests in Florida, and the
public can review that assess-
ment by visiting DOF's website at
www.fl-dof.com.


The public is encouraged to
participate by 'attending one of a
series of six workshops that will'
be held around the state later this
month to solicit opinions on the
futirure of forests in Florida The
dates, cities and locations are as
follows:
March 22 Milton Pen-
sacola Junior College, University
of Florida Bldg, Room 4.902.
March 23 Tallahassee -
Eyster Auditorium, Conner Bldg.,
3125 Conner Blvd.
March 24 Lake City -
Columbia County Extension Ser-
vice, 164 SW Mary Ethel Lane.
March 29 Tavares Lake


County*Ag/Horticulture Ext. Ser-
vice, 30205 State Road 19.
March 30 Palmetto- Mana-
tee County Ag Center/Fair-
grounds, Kendrick Auditorium,
1303 17th St. West. ,
March 31 Lantana Lan-
tana Recreation Center, 418 South
Dixie Highway
The regional workshops will
be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and
will be lead by a professional facil-
itator.
A draft plan on the future of
forests in Florida is expected to be.
posted on the DOF website next
fall, and the public will be asked
to comment on it.
