2004, another bad road year


Editor's note: The following is
an update from Glades County
Traffic Safety Team member Bob
Rader.
The Glades County Commu-
nity Traffic Safety Team'in con-
junction with the Florida High-
way Patrol, the Glades County
Sheriff's deputies, the Glades
County EMS, the 911 dispatchers,
and the 911 coordinator, collects
data on all traffic crashes
throughout the year.
This information enables the.



Fun in the


county to determine traffic dan-
ger points and to obtain funding
and help from state and national
sources to correct these prob-
lems. In fact, this month you will
see a flashing yellow warning
light installed on SR 78 opposite
the correction facility to warn
drivers of the U.S. 27 intersection
ahead. This resulted from crash
data collected by the team during
2003 and 2004.
Although we had fewer crash-
es in 2004 than in prior years we,

Just who's chasing who is the question during the March 19 segment of L Cross's Biker
Rodeo. Sure the truck has the muscle, but the four-wheeler had just a little' more dex-
terity in the deep mud.


The action wasn't just in the mud pits as trou-
ble found these folks along side of the road.
The canal was small but following the recent
rains, was more than three feet deep. -


Not exactlytea time, but anywhere's a good place for a friendly update.when you are
having a good time. See story and more photos, page 12.


Dairy Club
The Cows R Us Dairy.Club
ended this show season, with a
"bang! Club members Kelsey
Ahern, Teale Humphries, and
Amy Lundy traveled to Orlando
to participate in the State Dairy
Youth Fair. The girls competed in
the Showmanship division on Fri-
day night, each did very well in
their class, and Kelsey placed
fourth in the nine year old class.
On Saturday it was time to show
off their heifers. Amy and Teale
both exhibited their class one
Holstein heifers, Meisha and
Pansy. Amy won the class'and
was able to go back in for Junior
Champion, and won the Junior
Champion class competing
against six other great heifers!
Kelsey took third place in' the
Class two Brown Swiss class with
Petunia, Teale took fourth in the
Class 4 Brown Swiss class with
Blossom and first in the Class six
Brown Swiss Class with Dollars.
Teale also placed second in her
class with her milk cow Maple.
The. girls then competed- in the
county group competition. This


sadly, had more deaths, injuries,
and property damage. There
were 283 crashes resulting in 11
deaths, 249 injuries, and
$1,372,726 in property damage.
The injuries (where sufficient
identifying data was available)
involved 106 males with an aver-
age age of 38, the youngest was
three and the oldest 89. Females
involved 63 with an average age
of.43, the youngest 13 and the
oldest 82.
t)eaths included six males, the


youngest 13, and three females.
There were 26 traffic violation
citations issued to drivers
involved in the injury crashes.
Contributing factors were hit-
ting or swerving to miss an ani-
mal (15), and storm and fog con-
ditions (9).. However, in the
majority of cases the cause was
simply careless driving.
Crashing vehicles included 94
cars, 70 pickups, 53 trucks, 16
vans, four motorcycles, one train,
one bicycle, and one ATV. Again


most crashes occurred on U.S. 27
but the highest crash rate (num-
ber of crashes versus traffic den-
sity) happened on SR 78
between U.S. 27 and the Kissim-
mee River.
The most frightening crashes
involved children. A double-cab
pickup near Christmas day' with
an 18-year-old driver, and three
passengers, aged 14, 14, and 15,
with all four crowded together in

Glades has


garden
Anyway you look at it, the Hav
Glades County Garden Club is year
exceptional, not because it's grad
the only one in the entire coun- Moo
ty, but rather because of its schc
longevity and accomplish- them
ments. of tir
It was in 1976 that the A
organization was founded by bers
Mrs. Tina Elliot and it's been of th
growing ever since. Mrs. Elliot ate r
spoke 'briefly at the March the
meeting elaborating on the the
club's beginning with high and
praise for the loyalty of the -cate
members and their accom- O
plishments for nearly a quarter mos
century. ing t
Naturally the group has Larr
gone through some difficult shall
times but the backbone of the new
club.hasremained strong an-- chai:
steadfast in its mission, as is briel
demonstrated' by many proj- took
ects in various locations in and Judg
near Moore Haven. Some of T
these include planting memori- than
al trees throughout the county,
planting around the Moore See


club
en welcome sign and the
ly project of giving all fifth
ers in West Glades and
re Haven Elementary
ools individual plants for
i to nurture over a period
me.
t a later date club mem-
judge the care and growth
he plants making appropri-
recognition for those with
"biggest and best". Also,
students keep their plants

of participation.
)n March 11, perhaps the
t outstanding annual meet-
took place at the home of
y and Neva Luckey on Mar-
Field Road, at which time
officers and committee
rmen were announced. A

Kyle Peterson emerged
from a deep field of anglers to
win the 2005 annual Chalo
Nitka Big Bass Tournament to
win more than a $1,000 with a
total weight of 7.85 pounds.
Kyle claimed the first prize
check worth $1,000 and was
wearing a Chalo Nitka T-shirt,
which offered a $100 bonus to
the person who hauled in the
big bass for the day, which he
was able to accomplish..

members take honors
'* Ag'


is a competition where three
exhibitors, from the dame coun-
ty, show three different animals.
The group is judged on overall
conformation and how well the
animals fit together.
The Cows R US group placed
sixth among some very stiff com-
petition from across the state.
During the week of the fair the
girls competed in the small coun-
ty herdsman competition. They
were judged on the county dis-
play, and how well kept their ani-
mals and area was. On Sunday
afternoon they won third place in
the herdsman competition, a
highly coveted award. Overall it
was a very good show. Teale was
also elected as Secretary of the
Junior Brown Swiss Cattle Club.
Amy, Kelsey, and Teale would
like to thank Ms. Betty Kay for
making the adorable cows they
used for the county display. They
added a unique touch and every-
one loved them!
In January the group started
the show season off at the South
Florida Fair in West Palm Beach.


Friday night Teale competed in
the Fitting & Grooming competi-
tion and placed third in the junior
division, and placedfifth in the
showmanship competition. On
Saturday the girls competed in
the youth show. Teale placed first
with her Holstein Pansy, Amy
placed second with her Holstein
Meisha. In the Brown Swiss
show Kelsey placed fourth with
Petunia in Class 2, Teale placed
eighth, in Class 4 with Blossom,
1st in Class 6 with Dollars, and
third in Class 12 with Maple.
On Sunday was the open
show. Again Teale and Amy were
on top of their Holstein class,
Kelsey moved to third with Petu-
nia, Blossom took 7th, Dollars
first and Maple 2nd. Teale took
Dollars back in for the Junior
Champion class and won
Reserve Junior Champion.
After West Palm Beach it was
on to the state fair in Tampa. This
is a qualifying show so the com-
petition in really stiff. Only Teale

with the network, we'll leave at it Christina for now. But
this local gal could use more support, so tune into UPN

The Conserve Wildlife License
Plate is the product of a partner-
ship between the FWC, the WFF,
Defenders of Wildlife and the
Florida Chapter of the Sierra Club.
The license plate cost $17 more
than a regular plate. Of that addi-
tional cost, the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehi-
cles receives $2. The WFF receives
the remaining $15 to support
activities of the FWC. The $15 is
tax-deductible.
In the past five years, the WFF
has provided funding for more
than $1.3 million of Conserve
Wildlife License Plate revenues for
FWC projects.
The Florida Legislature estab-
lished the WFF in 1994 to provide
assistance, funding and promo-
tional support for the FWC.

the WFF is available at Wildlife-

Trip to Bahamas with Latin beauties


Taking a trip across the bluest
waters of the Atlantic Ocean is a
perk all of it's own, but throw in
the company of Latin beauty
queens, and it may be too much
to ignore.
The winners of the Miss Latina
of the Glades beauty contest are
preparing to head to the Bahamas
this summer to compete at the


famed Crystal Palace to vie for the
title of Miss Latina Florida.
Milagros Navarro, who helped
coordinate the local pageant, said
she has received several inquiries
about when and where the next
pageant is going to take place.
"I've had dozen of calls," she
said. "People are curious about
what the next step is, so I just


want to get the word out to those
who are interested."
While the competitors'
expenses are already taken care
of, several people want to join
them in the-Bahamas to cheer
them on to possible state royalty.
Packages are now being
offered for anyone interested in
joining the local Latin beauties or


for anyone who is just looking to
get away. The pageant is sched-
uled for June 18, and the girls will
leave in preparation for the com-
petition June 14.
For more information about
the upcoming pageant, the local
competitors, or for anyone look-
ing for a quick "getaway", call
(863) 983-2368.

Enjoy eggs but don't hide the hardboiled ones!


Eggs are one of nature's won-
ders.,
A whole egg has about 75 calo-
ries. Most of the calories as well as
most of the nutrition is in the yolk.
An egg yolk only has about 17 calo-
ries.
Eggs contain Vitamins A, D, E,
B12 as well as choline and folic
acid. Choline is a nutrient the body
used to make the brain chemical
that is necessary for memory func-
tion.
Eggs are a good source of nutri-
tion with about 6 grams of protein
in one egg.
Colored eggs are often used as a
symbol of Easter. If you plan to
color hard boiled eggs this year, just
don't hide them.
Cooking eggs damages the shell
- it creates tiny holes in the shell
that can let in bacteria. Once an egg
is hardboiled, it should be kept
cold. Hiding hardboiled eggs out-
side is potentially dangerous in
Florida, because the eggs will
warm' quickly and may become

contaminated with bacteria.
I always advise using plastic
eggs for Easter egg hunts. You can
put pennies or small toys inside the
eggs. Be careful about putting
candy in the plastic eggs the Flori-
da heat can easily turn candy into a
melted mess.
Hardboiled eggs can be safely
kept in the refrigerator for about a
week, so don't cook more than you
plan to use in a week.
The United States Department
of Agriculture offers the following
tips on handling eggs safely:
. Keep eggs in the refrigerator


until ready to cook.
Take out only the number of
eggs you need to use.
When ready to use eggs,
remember they roll, so first find a
place to secure them outside the
'refrigerator.
Throw out any dirty or
cracked eggs.
Always wash hands with
warm, soapy water before and
after preparing eggs.
. Crack eggs into a clean bowl.
If some shell gets into the bowl, use
a clean spoon to get it out.
Throw broken eggshells
directly into trashcan.
Use an egg separator if recipe
calls for separation 'of egg whites
from yolks into different bowls.
Wash hands with warm
soapy water before adding other,
ingredients.
After adding other ingredi-
ents, do not taste raw batter or
dough until it has been cooked.
When cooking eggs, make
sure the egg whites have turned to


a white color and are solid not
runny. The yolk should be begin-
ning to thicken. Scrambled eggs
should not have any liquid.
e Dishes made with eggs
should be cooked thoroughly, and
baked goods should be solid in the
center when tested with a tooth-
pick.
Measure the temperature at
the center of the cooked egg dish
with a thermometer. Cook until the
temperature in the center of the
dish reads 160 degrees when test-
ed.
Wash all dishes, pots and
pans, cooking utensils and food
preparation areas with warm
soapy water as soon as possible'
after use.
Before making any change in.
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."

realize Barbara is out of town.
3. Seriously considering moving
to Montana or faking epileptic
seizures to avoid baking cake.
4. Realize it's cold in Montana
and everyone that knows me
would think seizures were my nor-
mal behavior.

sugar in mixer.

God's light shines in our darkness


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I am not an early morning
person. For many years I threw a
newspaper route. There were
many mornings I got up early to
go duck hunting. There were
times I arose in the wee hours of
the morning to drive to family
gatherings. In my older age, I've
figured that I have paid my dues
and now enjoy sleeping in a little
bit.


It is perfectly okay with me if
the early bird gets his slimy little
$6.25 worm I never much cared for
worms anyway! For me, the
$4.25 crack of dawn now comes at
$4.00 seven or eight in the morning,
$3.75 give or take, and while I enjoy a
$6.25 good sunset, I also enjoy a com-
$4.00 fortable bed, thank you very
much.
But there is one sunrise that I
$5.50 make a point to see every year if
$5.75 possible Easter Sunrise. I
remember Easter Sunrise in the


Keys when I was about eight. I
remember Easter Sunrises while
at the University of Florida. I
remember Easter Sunrises since
I've been here in Clewiston.
What is it about Easter sunrises
that leave childhood memories,
gets a college student out of bed,
and causes a man to leave his
comfortable bed?
"While it was still dark, Mary
came to the tomb." Mary went
expecting to find a heavy stone
sealing the grave. She went
expecting to find death. She went
expecting to mourn. She went to
the tomb while it was still dark.
That's how Mary experienced
Easter. She went to the tomb
while it was still dark but in
that darkness she found a light -
a light that has shown brightly
throughout generations.
The reason I get up early on
Easter morning is to celebrate
that light. The sun has risen on
our Easter. In the hours and days,
weeks and months that have

b The tomb, where Lazarus was
believed to have been buried is
several steps below street level. It
is reached by descending a nar-
row stone stairway with marrow
steps and not much width. When
you reach the bottom of these
uneven steps on the side of a
bleak wall, you are in a small
room with another room at the
end, separated by a partial wall.
Behind this wall is where Lazarus
was supposed to have been laid.
When I visited Bethany in
Israel and the tomb, I couldn't
help but note how deep under-
ground was the tomb in compari-
son to other burial places. You
had to really descend. You had .to
cross behind a wall. There would
have been no electric light or iron
railing in those days, two addi-
tions that made my descent easi-
er. John's gospel account tells us
that Jesus called "Lazarus, come
out!" (Chapter 11, verse 43) and
he did. A person dead four days,
wrapped with strips of linen,


Living


hears the voice of the Lord and
leaves the tomb.
The story of Easter is .about
Jesus Himself leaving the tomb
and rising from the dead. With
His rising and His message, we
too are called by Him to, "come
out"! The story of Easter is about
our free from God of eternal life
- the tangible sign of the one
who promised to go before us
and then come back to take us
with Him.
The story of Lazarus is a prel-
ude to the promise and a witness
to those who we are around that
even death, even being buried
deeply underground, even being
entombed for four days, even
considered dead and wrapped in
burial dressing, would not over-
come the gift of life.
The message of Easter I fore-
shadowed in this miracle and
restoration of one from the dead.
It is a message to us that even
when we think we are dead, the
Lord calls us.to life.
Earlier in my life, I worked in a
plant with long assembly lines
and watched the people do the
same thing over day after day,


passed since that day, stories of
resurrection have emerged from
the darkness. Heroes, hope, and
help emerge still to light the way
out of the darkness that descend-
ed on that morning.
We don't come expecting to
find that huge stone in the way,
for we know it has been rolled
away. We don't come expecting
to find death. We expect life. We
don't come to mourn,, but to cel-
ebrate. No dirges for us this
morning! We want trumpets and
shouts of "Alleluia!" We want to
hear the strains of "Christ the
Lord is Risen Today!"
This year, the Clewiston Minis-
terial Association is hosting a 6
a.m. community Easter Sunrise
service at the levee near the boat
launching area. I invite you to
join me and others like me who
will get up early to watch the sun
come up over the lake, and to
celebrate God's Son rising in our
lives.
From where does our hope


ig: Having
year after year. I listened to them
talk about the TV shows the night
before, their same old weekend
activities and routines. There
were a' few though, that had
another life beyond their daily
routines. They were building
houses, taking courses, develop-
ing new relationships, traveling,
learning about new things. There
was something much more
"alive" about those persons and
they were happier, more fulfilled
than some that seemed nearly
"dead" in their routines that
seemed like ruts.
I decided that I wanted to be
with the living and worked to
keep my life full.
After gathering up some
money, I returned to school and
explored whole new worlds and
built on the foundation of the liv-
ing that God was leading me
toward finding. Since then, I've.
found that there are those who
are alive but only nearly alive;
trapped in routines and ruts often
of their own making and at least
of their own participation.'There
are others who are nearly dead
physically, but ever so alive by


come? It comes from God, who
put it in our hearts, who put it in
creation! Our hope comes from
the promise that the light of
God's love dispels darkness. It is
because we believe that promise
that we gather on Easter Sunday
in such numbers, with such fan-
fare! It is because we believe that
God can shine the light of love
into every dark corner of our
lives that we celebrate this day of
resurrection. For the rising of
Jesus from the tomb is a prequel
to our own rising from our own
tombs, whatever they may be, no
matter how'large the stone that
traps us inside!
Know this and know it well: In
our times of darkness, God's light.
will shine! Never give up hope!
For dawn will come, goodness
will triumph, every tear shall be
wiped dry, and God will reign in
heaven and on earth! Let
alleluias ring! Let the stones roll
away! For Christ-is risen! Christ is
risen, indeed!


A Full Life
their spiritual conquests, by their
capacity to love and be loved, by
their always growing and learning
More about God's worlds. Their
lives are full and they savor every
moment.
The message of Easter is to
have a new life; Jesus was raised
from the dead and promised that
we would share life with Him
when this life is over.
In the meantime, the gift is His
call for us to "come out!" of the
tomb that keeps us from having
less than all God intends and live
life as fully as we can.
Easter symbols eggs and
rabbits speak-to us about the
life that is waiting to happen and
waiting to be born; the creatures
known for their spreading life and
giving life abundantly. The story
of the Resurrection is .that we are
to have a full life too so full that
it can't even end and will spill over
into eternity. "I have come that
they my have life, and have it to
the full" promises of the 'Lord
(John 10;10). May we come out
and have it to the full. Happy East-
er!

FHP launches "Operation Safe Break"


Tallahassee Colonel Chris
knight, director of the Florida
Highway Patrol (FHP),
announced plans for "Operation
Safe Break", scheduled for
March 18 through April 28. The
operation is to coincide with
spring break activities through-
out Florida.
"We have noticed throughout
the years that during spring
break, many students attempt to.
drive long distances at high
speed, in many cases, without
resting in order to reach their
spring break destination," said
Colonel Knight. "These factors
sometimes result in drivers
falling asleep at the wheel and
ending up crashing, sometimes
with unfortunate results," he
added.
Historically, March and April
have been the peak months each

Coalition commends SFWMD executive director


By Pete Gawda
Regulation of lake levels was
one of the topics of discussion at
Thursday's meeting of the County
Coalition for Responsible Manage-
ment of Lake Okeechobee and St.
Lucie and Caloosahatchee Estuar-
ies and Lake Worth Lagoon.
Outgoing executive director of
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) Henry Dean,
and Colonel Bob Carpenter of the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE), Jacksonville District, were
featured speakers at the meeting,
which was held at the Okeechobee
County Civic Center.
The coalition is made up of
county commissioners represent-
Sing Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin,
Lee, Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades,.
Highlands, and Osceola Counties.
Colonel. Carpenter gave an
overview of COE's operations, he
said his organization has three
objectives: Supporting the econo-
my, helping fight the war on terror
and environmental involvement.
He said COE also provides engi-
neering support to other govern-
ment agencies.
During last year's hurricanes,
the colonel said COE provided
water, power to hospitals, tempo-
rary roofing and temporary hous-,
ing.
The colonel said that COE is
dedicated to south Floridia i,..sys-
tem restoration. He said that seven
-miles of the Kissimmee River
restoration have been done and,
.that the entire project ,vould be
completed by 2011.
He discussed other COE proj-
ects such as aquifer storage and
recovery, surface water storage
and storm water treatment areas.
The colonel said COE's work is
done in sequence of five-year plans
and that the Indian River Lagoon
was one of their priority projects.,
He discussed the Lake Okee-
chobee lake level regulation sched-
ule. The colonel said that in the
spring of 2004 there was tempo-
rary deviation of the lake level regu-
lation schedule to allow for 'nore
flexibility. By May 1. the lake was
downto.14 feet.
As it turned out, he said that was
good since the state was hit with,
four hurricanes.
By May 1 of this year, .he
pledged to have the lake level as
close to 14 feet "as God will allow
us."
One of COE's priorities s main-
laining the integrity of the Hebert
Hoover Dike.
He said the Comprehensive
EveTglades Restoration' Pomrri
ponents are the real drivers to help
us manage \\ after.
Retising the lake level regula-
tion schedule to make it more flexi-
ble and fndre responsive to weath-
er conditions will require public
review, expense and it will be a
'long haul, the colonel predicted.
Mr. Dean; who is retiring after
30 years of government service,
noted there has been limited suc-
cess in the last five years on water
quality because of the condition of
the lake. However, he said progress
was being made with storm water
treatment areas (STAs).
.'"We need to redouble bur
efforts to put more funding, toward
SLake Okeechobee restoration," he
asserted.
The executive director said the
SFWMD needed to do better on
removing pollutants from water on
site before it reaches the lake.
He said SFWMD is dedicated to
design and construction of reser-
voirs to store .ater to keep it from
having to i1o0v into the estuaries
and upset their salinity
"There is no good solution
immediately. We need to move for-
ward with water treatment and
storage," he said
He noted that Wednesday's
lake:level was lower than the level
on thai date year ago.
1 am committed to staying on a
temporary deviation schedule and
making pulse releases," he added.
He said that on Wednesday
SFWMD instituted a 10-day pulse
release.
He, too, pledged to have the
lake at 14 feet by June 1.
SHe said SFWMD wants to pro-
vide the most reasonable lake level
regulation schedules while at the

Retiring South Florida Water Management District Executive Director Henry Dean was pre-
sented a plaque for his "wise management of Lake Okeechobee and its concerned estuar-
ies" by members of the County Coalition for Responsible Management of Lake Okeechobee
and St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee Estuaries and Lake Worth Lagoon. Members of the coali-
tion.standing behind Mr. Dean are: (left to right) Glades County Commissioner Alvin Ward,
Okeechobee County Commissioner Clif Betts, Osceola County Commissioner Ken Smith, St.
Lucie County Commissioner Joe Smith, Highlands County Commissioner Edgar Stokes,

tion was made Thursday morning at the Okeechobee County Civic Center.


same time working on STA and
' ater biage '
"We are fully committed to con-
tinuing land acquisition to the max-
imum," he said. However, he
noted that skyrocketing land prices
were a factor.
Mr. Dean discussed various
SFWMD projects.
He said that the best news of
last year's Lake Tohopekaliga draw
down was that SFWMD was able
to work with landowners to store
water. He said the lake was dowu
to 12.2 feet in August after the draw
down because of.water storage.
Mr. 'Dean suggested, possibly
storing more water on private
lands in order to bring the lake level
down without discharging water
into the estuaries.
Ken Lindahl, a member of
SFWMD's governing board,
pledged to keep up the momen-
tum started by Mr. Dean, after Mr.
Dean's retirement. He commend-
ed Mr. Dean for his leadership of
SFWMD, saying Mr. Dean was the
kind of man who will "lead follow
or get out of the way."
Former Okeechobee County
Commissioner David Hazellief was
presented a plaque in recognition
of his service as chairman of the
.coalition during his tenure as com-
missioner. *
Dr Rainmond Jones,; retired
botanist, urged lower lake levels.
He said that lowered and fluxuat-
ing lake levels are best for the envi-
ronment and for the economy.
Dr. Paul Gray of the Audubon
Society spoke in favor of legislative
appropriations for lake projections.
He said many submerged
plants were .lost recently. because
of the turbidity of the water. He
urged continued releases to bring
the lake down to 13.5 feet. He said
greater releases might be neces-
sary in May.
The coalition also passed a res-
olution in support of adding a
water quality component to the
C43 project in Hendry County..
A planned field trip to the Taylor
Creek STA on Grassy Island Ranch
and the McArthur Dairy was can-
celled because of the weather. The
purpose of the Taylor Creek STA is
to treat 10 percent of the water
from Taylor creek by diverting it
into a 1.6-mile. STA that parallels
:the creek before returning the
Niater back to the creek. The
objective is to rerno\e phospho-
rous.
The treatment system at the
Macarthur Dairy is one of 13 state-
funded. projects under the Phos-
phorous Source Control Grant Pro-
gram. The. system diverts
wastewater from the barn through
a grit screen and a sand separator
to remove solids and then a chem-
ical process provides after r treat-
ment,. The treated water is recycled
back. to the dairy operation, while
the sludge generated, in the
process is collected for future off-
.site use.

Alico shareholder provides assurances


LABELLE Alico, Inc., (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO) one of the South's
best known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, and with
approximately 141,000 acres in
real estate holdings, announced
today that it has received a letter
outlining certain governance stan-
dards, practices and procedures
which Atlantic Blue Trust, Inc.
("ABT"), a 48 percent shareholder
in Alico's common stock, has
notified Alico that it intends to fol-
low.
The letter, filed with the SEC
on March 22, 2005,- advised
Alico's Board of Directors that in
the interest of providing assur-
ance of its continuing commit-
ment to reasonable and appropri-
ate corporate governance
standards .ABT is committing
through Alico's 2007 annual
meeting:
To vote its shares of com-
mon stock at Alico's annual
shareholder meeting to elect
director nominees such that a
majority of Alico's Board of Direc-
tors is comprised of directors who


are "independent" as defined in
Nasdaq Rule 4200 and also who
are not directors, officers,
employees or stockholders of
ABT or family members of a direc-
tor, officer, employee or stock-
holder of ABT.
Not to acquire, through
open market- or private purchas-
es, more than 55% of Alico's out-
standing common stock on a fully
diluted basis.
Not to engage in any related
party transaction with Alico or any
of its: subsidiaries unless such
transaction is approved by a
majority of the independent direc-
tors on Alico's Board of Directors
(or a committee of Alico's Board
-of Directors comprised entirely df
independent directors).
To separate the person serv-
ing as the Chairman and CEO of
Alico and the person serving as
the Chairman and CEO of ABT so
that the top executiv-e officer at
each Company is a different indi-
vidual.
To separate the Directors of
Alico and ABT such that no Direc-
tor serving on the ABT Board will


also serve on the Alico Board and
that no Director serving on the
Alico Board will also serve on the
ABT Board.
J. D. Alexander, on behalf of
ABT, informed Alico, "ABT
remains committed to its invest-
ment in Alico, Inc. Moreover ABT
has at all times insisted on and
supported reasonable and appro-
priate governance standards, pro-
cedures and practices. Given the
recent confusion caused as a
result of the resignation of certain
Directors, ABT thought it advis-
able to re-confirm formally these
good governance commitments
to Alico."
Greg Mutz, Chairman of
Alico's Nominating Committee,
stated, "I am pleased by ABT's
voluntary assurances of good cor-
porate governance and I believe
that this will facilitate the Nomi-
nating Committee's search for
prospective nominees to the Alico
Board of Directors."
In accordance with their com-
mitment to the corporate gover-
nance standards, ABT held a
meeting of their Board of Direc-

Baxter G. Troutman resigned
from the Board, both effective
immediately. In addition, J. D.

because Amy was competing in'
the Jr. Miss Chalo Nitka Pageant.
Both girls did well in the showman-
ship competition. Teale took fourth
in her age group and Kelsey took
third in hers. In the youth show
Teale won her class with her Hol-
stein, and her Brown Swiss Dollars.
She placed 5th with Blossom, 2nd
with Maple, and Kelsey placed
third with Petunia. Teale also won
Honorable Mention Junior Cham-
pion with her Holstein Pansy. In the
open show Kelsey took third again
with Petunia, and Teale placed 5th
with Blossom, 1st with Dollars, and
2nd with Maple. Overall the girls
did a great job!
In November Teale had the
opportunity to attend the North

others: Two teenage girls and

cruel act of fate, a freak tragedy

deaths on the USA's roadways:
Put a 16-year old boy at the wheel

Those common factors

examined all the deadly crashes
involving 16-to-19 -year-old driv-
ers in 2003. About 3,500
teenagers died in teen-driven
vehicles that year a death toll
that tops that of any disease or
injury for teens. The South proved
to be the deadliest region. More
than two-thirds of fatal single-
vehicle teen crashes involved-
nighttime driving or at least one
passenger age 16 to 19. Nearly
three-fourths of the drivers in
those crashes were male. And 16-
year old drivers were the riskiest

of all. Their rate of involvement in
fatal crashes was nearly five times

according to the Insurance Insti-

.Teen brains are not developed.
New medical research helps
explain why. The' part of the brain
that weighs risks and controls

Some state legislators and safety

:Benefits of Canker eradication outweigh costs


" LAKE ALFRED While the
:state's citrus canker eradication
-program has been mired in con-
itroversy and legal action resulting
:in a' stop-and-go approach to
-removing infected trees a new
*University of Florida study indi-
*cates the benefits of the eradica-
-tion program outweigh the costs
:eight to one.
" "Without the eradication pro-
:gram, citrus canker will become
.widely established in Florida, with
:serious long-term consequences
for the state's $9.1 billion citrus
:industry," said Ron Muraro, a pro-
:fessor with UF's Institute of Food
Sand Agricultural Sciences. "It
'-would jeopardize our position in
:the world market."
* If citrus canker were to become
'endemic in Florida, exports of
- fresh fruit to Europe would likely
:cease, he said. Over the long run,
:the economic loss due to an
*endemic canker problem would
:be nearly $2.5 billion.
1 The bacterial disease, which
;causes lesions on the leaves, stems
*and fruit of citrus trees, weakens
:citrus trees, causing a loss in yields
:and higher production costs.
'Removal and burning of infected
;:or exposed trees is the only way to
\;stop the disease.
According to the study, the
,canker eradication program saves
producers $169.2 million annually
in production costs for items such
-as extra bactericide sprays in
:groves, and processing steps at
Spackinghouses to grade out blem-
ished fruit and disinfect clean fruit
-for foreign and domestic markets.
'The eradication program also
'helps the citrus industry avoid
$84.9 million per year in lost rev-
enues that would be caused by
'lower fruit yields and unmar-
rketable fruit. By contrast, the annu-
. al cost of the eradication program


in 2005 is estimated to be $44 mil-
lion.
"When the annual impacts are
extrapolated over time, the cost to
the industrywould exceed $2.5 bil-
lion, and the disease would be
well on its way to destroying the
Florida citrus industry," Muraro
said.
Total cost of the current eradi-
cation program, which began in
1995, is estimated to be $477 mil-
lion, which includes the destruc-
tion of infected or exposed trees
and compensation to homeown-
ers for lost trees. In 2004, produc-
ers received approximately $28.4
million in compensation from
state and federal agencies for pro-
duction lost to canker or exposure.
The eradication program is admin-
istered by the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices and the U.S. Department of
Agriculture.
Muraro, based at the UF/IFAS
Citrus Research and Education
Center in Lake Alfred, said special-
ty fruit would be the only segment,
of the citrus industry that might
experience a net gain in revenue
associated with endemic citrus
canker. The disease would reduce
shipments of certain fresh fruit
varieties, thereby boosting the
market price of fruit harvested
from canker-free groves. The net
gain in prices for specialty fruit
would reduce the benefits associ-
ated with the canker eradication
prograni by $44.5 million. Never-
theless, he said, an endemic citrus
canker situation would still have
an overall negative impact on rev-
enue for the industry.
. The two-year study, funded by
USDA, was conducted by Muraro
and Tom Spreen, professor and
chairman of the UF/IFAS food and
resource economics department
in Gainesville. Marisa Zansler, an


economist at USDAs Animal Plant
Health Inspection Services in
Washington, D.C., contributed to
the study.
The economic analysis of the
citrus canker eradication program
was developed using the predicted
values of the benefits and the costs
associated with the program. The
summary reports, FE 531 and FE
532, are available on the UF/IFAS
Electronic Document Information
Source Web site:
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/.
Spreen said the study did not
measure changes in consumer
demand that might occur if the cit-
rus disease is not eradicated.
"Although citrus canker will not
adversely affect human health, the
mere image of consuming a prod-
uct that is visually unappealing
may have a negative impact on the
demand, for Florida citrus," he
said.
"Opponents say Florida should
abandon the current eradication
program and learn to live with the
citrus canker problem," Muraro
said. "They contend that the citrus
industry will not incur losses that
are big enough to outweigh the
cost of the eradication program,
but our research clearly indicates
that this would not be the case."
The study also shows that the
current, expanded-phase eradica-
tion program, which -ramped up
with renewed state and federal
funding in 2000, could have
removed all trees infected or
exposed to the disease by the end
of this year. However, because of
legal challenges that halted tree
removal in Miami-Dade and
Broward counties, the eradication
program will have to continue
until January 2008, the report says.
Spreen said the 2004 hurricane'
season "throws another unknown
into the equation" because the dis-


ease is spread by rain-driven wind.
"Our cost estimates for con-
cluding the eradication program in
2008 were developed in June 2004
before the storms passed through
the state," Spreen said. "Now we
are beginning to see new out-
breaks of citrus canker in South-
west Florida and the Indian River
area, which means the program
may have to continue beyond
2008."
Jim Graham, a professor of soil
microbiology at the Lake Alfred
center who is studying the patholo-
gy of the disease and evaluating
various control methods, said deci-
sive action is the best policy when
canker threatens the Florida citrus
industry. Outbreaks of the disease
have plagued the industry since the
early 1900s, but have been throt-
tled by eradication efforts in earlier
campaigns. Previous programs
eradicated canker from the state in
1933 and 1994.
"If another outbreak should
occur after Florida has been certi-
fied canker-free, a policy will prob-
ably remain in place for immediate
eradication," Graham said. "Stop-
ping the disease as quickly as pos-
sible minimizes the considerable
costs of residential and grove sur-
veillance' for canker and the
removal infected and exposed
trees to Floridians, the federal gov-
ernment and the citrus industry."
Tim Schubert, a plant patholo-
gist with the state agriculture
department's Division of Plant
Industry in Gainesville,-said the
expansion of international travel
and trade increases the risk of inva-
sive pests and disease such as cit-
rus canker. Additional resources
are needed to detect and guard
against these exotic- pests and
pathogens that threaten agricul-
ture natural resources in Florida
and the United States, he said.

SIMPLE SECRETS TO LOWER YOUR UTILITYh COSTS hakE s.uaa M 2

SIMPLE SECRETS TO LOWER YOUR UTILITY COSTS tI ,,


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.


I


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

the air conditioning. In the
winter, they can block harsh
winds.
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
heat guest rooms only when
they are occupied.
If bedrooms are empty
during the day, turn on the
heat an hour before bedtime.
Remove the lint and dust
from ventilation ducts to give
heat and air conditioning clear
paths.

By MaiyAnn Morris
Avaline Walker Lantz is an
Okeechobee native. Bobs Lantz's
family came to Okeechobee from
Indiana where they had moved
from Lancaster, Pa.
"Bob's dad was pastor of the.
Taylor Creek Church of the
Brethren. It was back behind
where Sue Arnold's place is.
(Arnold's Wildlife Refuge.) They
came when I was in fifth grade,
around 1935, said Mrs. Lantz. "His
sister, Martha, became my best
friend and that's when I became
friends with Bob."
Pastor Lantz was a builder,
according to his son. He was pas-,
tor of the Basinger Church, and
then he got the Taylor Creek
Church of the Brethren started and
later became the second pastor of
the Abundant Blessings Church,
located on Route 441 North.
"I 'worked cows for Sonny
Williamson's father. When Alva-
-line and I were courting, I would be
out at a cow camp, like Pop Ash
Slough, that's out Route 70 West
and I'd ride my horse three hours
home Saturday afternoon to go to
church in Basinger on Sunday,
then ride three hours back to camp
Sunday afternoon.
"We made $1 a day if we rode a
company horse, $1.50 if you rode
your own horse and they'd feed
you and your horse for that," said
Mr. Lantz.
"You'd milk those old Cracker
cows too. Use about a one pound
coffee can. They didn't give much
milk," said Mrs. Lantz.
"It was something to milk awild
cow," said Mr. Lantz. "Someone
would hold tight to what we called
a drafty pole. It had two holes in the
end and you'd rope the cow's
horns real tight, then twist, sort of
like using a twitch on a horse, to
take their minds off what you were
.doing to them. Then, you'd get
what milk you could between
kicks.
"And those Cracker cows could
kick, too," Mrs. Lantz laughingly
remembered.
"We'd go out hunting up the
cows and sometimes we'd find
wild hogs or they'd come around
our camp, smelling the feed we
carried for the horses. Well, we'd
rope them and tie them up, then
pick them up on the way back. You
could pen them up *and fatten
them. When they were fat, they'd
make good eating or you could sell
them for the meat and make a few
dollars. We'd come across Semi-
noles out there. They fattened
hogs, too. When you caught a hog,
you'd cut its ear to make just such a
mark so you could tell whose was
whose. You can't brand a hog
because the brand would grow
out, so you'd cut an, ear to mark
them."
Then World War II came and on
the morning of Dec.. 7, 1941, Pearl
Harbor was bombed by the Japan-
ese. "I'll never forget that day, Mr.
Lantz says shaking his head.
"I was working for Sonny
Williamson's father then out
working the cows. We were up at a
.cow camp, back in the north part
of the county out west of where the
state park is now. We had stopped
to rest the horses. The Durrance
boys had a pickup pulled up under
the camp shelter with the radio on
and Sonny heard the news that
Pearl Harbor'had been bombed
and came and told us.' I'll never for-
get that."
Mr. Lantz was called up to fight
in World War II, just a couple
weeks after Pearl Harbor, before
Christmas in 1941. "I served in a
remount unit. That's why I wore
tall boots in uniform. We were a
mounted unit."
"We got married during the war
in August 1943 and settled up in
Basinger. We lived there in the
1940s," said Mrs. Lantz, "Our
house was just where the Basinger
Civic Center is now. It was a story
and a half. There wasn't any elec-
tric there until just before the hurri-


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


cane in 1949. Florida Power and
Light wouldn't run power out
there, but Glades Electric came and
they did. Our house in Basinger
had carbon lights. (Carbon fila-
ment came before the tungsten fil-
ament used now.)
"The 1949 storm washed out
the bridge on Basinger Road (now
S.R. 98) across Chandler's Slough.
Rather than drive around, I drove
my Model A Ford Roadster right
through it," chuckled Mrs. Lantz.
"You'd put an old raincoat over
the engine to keep it dry," agreed
Mr. Lantz with a grin. "Drive on in
and come up the other side drip-
ping Hyacinth and green stuff. It
was kind of fun.
"I had a lot of horses over the
years," Mr. Lantz recalled. "One I
remember was named Cricket. He
was a real character. No one could
ride him but me. He just didn't like
anyone else. He wouldn't even pay
any attention if someone came to
the fence if he was turned out. He
didn't like just fooling around. He
knew his work and he liked to
work. He's just work for me. When
I decided it was time to quit, I sold
my saddle and all, so I wouldn't be
tempted to start back again. It was
dangerous work and after awhile
you know it's time to quit."
"We farmed, too. I had a Ford-
son tractor, not a Ford tractor, a
Fordson tractor," remembered Mr..
Lantz.
"We called them lightning
rods," commented Mrs. Lantz with
a glance at her husband, "that trac-
tor was all metal, wheels and all,
and I really worried when he was
out in the fields and a storm would
come up."
Livestock wasn't fenced then.
Cattle roamed free and grazed
wherever the grass was good.
"After all the problems with the
ticks on the deer and the cattle,
they came up with what they called
the 'No Fence Law.' Everyone
thought it meant there wouldn't be
any need for fences, but it was a
sneaky thing, because what it
meant was that if you had no fence
you had no livestock. After that you
had to keep your livestock in or
they weren't yours 'any more,"
remembered Mr. Lantz.
The 1940s brought changes to
Okeechobee. The Okeechobee
News, on August of 1942 was able
to report that the county and city
debts brought on by the hard times
of the Depression in the 1930s
were being settled,. "The Federal
court entered a final decree con-.
firming a debt settlement proposed
by Okeechobee County."
Glades Electric Cooperative was
formed in 1947 to bring power to
the more rural areas, like Basinger
where he Lantzes lived then.
Because of the spread of disease
carried by ticks that infected cattle,
the open range was no more and
each rancher by law had to keep
his livestock fenced in. The storms
in the late 1940s caused the Kissim-
mee River to flood, drowning cattle
in the fields. In October of 1947, a
group of 300 citizens met in Okee-
chobee as the Flood Control Com-
mittee. This group began the work,
which would lead to the formation
of the Central and Southern Flood
Control District and the channeling
of the Kissimmee River. There was
only one dairy, the H,L.. Chandler
Dairy.
According to U.S. Census data,
the population of Okeechobee
County dropped from 4,129 in,
1930 to 3,000 in 1940, but-
improved pasture grasses were
being introduced, and Brahma cat-


tie were, being crossed with the
native cracker cows. Land in Dade
and Broward Counties was being
snapped up by developers and
there was change coming to Okee-
chobee.

Six tips to slashing your cooling bills


With the hot summer weath-
er just around the corner, now is
the time to give your home a
"checkup". Here are six tips
from the Comfort Institute, to
make sure your air conditioner
bills don't blow your cool.
Have your duct system tested
for air leaks. Many assume that
windows and doors are the
major cause of a home's energy-
wasting air leaks. But according
to research by the Department
of Energy (DOE), gaps, joints,
and disconnections in the typi-
cal home's duct system are
much more significant.
The DOE states that the typi-
cal duct system loses 25-40 per-
cent of the energy put out by the
central heat pump or air condi-
tioner. Authorities recommend
having an AC contractor test for
leaks and then seal them with a
brushed on fiber-reinforced
elastomeric sealant. Duct tape
usually dries out and fails. It
turns out duct tape is great for
many things, but sealing ducts
isn't one of them, according to
the Institute.
Ask your AC contractor to
perform an Infiltrometer "blow-
er door" test. The blower door is
a computerized instrument orig-'


finally invented by DOE. It pin-
points where your home's worst
air leaks are, such as duct leaks,
and also measures how leaky
the overall house is.
Many homes have significant
air leaks into the attic: Hot, dusty
air often gets drawn in through
recessed can lights and. pull
down stairs. New sealing prod-
ucts offer an infiltrometer test as
part of a whole house health
and comfort checkup that also
checks insulation levels and
overall duct performance. *
Close your fireplace dumper.
Did you remember to close after
the last time it was used? Shut it
now or waste precious cool air
all summer long.
Replace your air conditioner
.or heat pump filter. Most sys-
tems need this done every
month to ensure safe and effi-
cient operation. Keep forgetting
to do it? Ask your AC contractor
for information on an extended
surface area whole house filter
that only needs to be replaced
once a year. It also does a far
better job of keeping your
equipment and the air in your
home clean.
Have your air conditioner
cleaned and tuned. A pre-season


tune up is a great investment. It
reduces the chances of break-
downs in the middle of summer
and more than pays for itself
through more energy efficient
operations. Make sure the AC
contractor cleans both the
indoor and outdoor heat trans-
fer coils, and checks refrigerant
gas charge by measuring super-
heat of sub-cooling.
Consider replacing your old
air conditioner or heat pump.
Just like a car, central cooling
equipment doesn't last forever.
Is your system more than 12
years old? Planning to stay in
your home more than a few
years? Many authorities recom-
mend replacing it before it fails
permanently.
A new system improves com-
fort, is more dependable, and
creates less air pollution. New
units are up to twice as energy
efficient, which saves money on
your monthly electric bill.
However, government and
utility research has found that
over 90 percent of. newly
installed high-efficiency systems
have energy-wasting mistakes.
Do some homework before talk-
ing to contractors.


Juice 'jumping' hurts American farmers


LAKELAND The U.S.
International Trade Commis-
sion (ITC) ruled last week that
the revocation of an antidump-
ing order issued in 1987,
against imports of frozen con-
centrated orange juice from
Brazil, was not likely to cause
material injury to a domestic
industry. The Commission's
findings and opinion will be
reported to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce (DOC) by
March 28, and that agency will
then revoke the old order.
The ITC is required to con-
duct a "sunset review" of all
antidumping orders every five
years to determine whether
they should remain in effect by
projecting if revocation would
result in material injury to the
relevant domestic industry.
Florida-Citrus Mutual and a


group of domestic orange
juice processors stated that the
old order was no longer having
a beneficial impact on the U.S..
market because most of the
relevant producers had been
revoked or excluded from the
order over the years.
"We expected this result in
the sunset review when we
decided to file the new
antidumping petition in 2004,"
said Andy LaVigne, executive
vice president/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual. "Supporting rev-
ocation of the old order was
the only way to move the new
investigation forward and
address the real injury caused
by recent dumping that
escaped the purview bf the
1987 order."
The domestic producers
filed a new antidumping peti-


tion in December 2004 cover-
ing both frozen concentrate
orange juice (FCOJ) and not-
from-concentrate (NFC)
orange juice imported from
Brazil. The ITC ruled prelimi-
narily on March 3 that there
was a reasonable indication of
material injury because of
those imports, and the investi-
gation is continuing in front of
the DOC.
Florida Citrus Mutual,
founded in 1948, is the, state's
largest citrus grower organiza-
.tion with more than 11,000
members. The Florida citrus
industry provides a $9.1 billion
annual economic impact to
the state and employs 90,000
people, For more information,

Remeron users file claims


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist today
announced
procedures that Floridians
may use to file claims for cash
reimbursement for amounts they
overpaid for the prescription
antidepressant drug Remeron
and its generic equivalent mir-
tazapine. The relief is part of a
$36 million settlement between
the drug's manufacturer and the
50 states.
The nationwide settlement,
reached last October,, followed a
ten-month investigation spear-
headed by Texas, Florida and
Oregon. The states alleged that
Organon USA, Inc., and its parent
company, Akzo Nobel N.V.,
unlawfully extended a monopoly
on Remeron by improperly
delaying the availability of lower-
cost generic substitutes, which
resulted in higher prices for those
who paid.for the drug. Individual
Floridians who overpaid for the
medication may now begin the
claim process by calling a toll-
free claims line at 1-866-401-6807
or visiting the settlement website
at


www.RemeronSettlement.com.
"The high costs of prescrip-
tion drugs is already a heavy bur-
den for Florida citizens," said Mr.
Crist. "Obtaining this settlement
will provide some welcome relief
to eligible consumers."
The states today launched a
campaign to notify consumers of
the settlement and claims
process, including advertise-
ments in publications such as
Readers Digest, Parade and USA
Today. Pharmacists have also
agreed to help spread the word
to consumers, which Mr. Crist
said will provide an effective
resource for ensuring that citi-
zens learn of the reimbursement
program.
The amount received by indi-
vidual Florida consumers will
depend on the number of claims
actually filed. In addition to those
refunds, the settlement will pro-
duce reimbursement to govern-
mental agencies that paid for
Remeron or its generic equiva-
lent. In settling the case, the
states agreed to reserve a portion
of the settlement fund for public


entities across the nation, to be
divided based on population.
The individual public entities that
will receive funds, and the
amount of their recovery, will be
determined at a later date.
Recovery is also available for
third-party payors such as health
insurance plans.
The settlement, if ultimately
approved by the court, will
resolve
claims brought by state attor-
neys general as well as a private
class action brought on behalf of
a class of end payors. A Florida
company, Complete Claim Solu-
tions, Inc., of West Palm Beach,
is serving as the states' claims
administrator for the settlement.
Eligible consumers must file
claim forms postmarked no later
than
Jdne 13, 2005, in order to be
eligible for a refund. The address
is Remeron Antitrust Settlement,
c/o Complete Claim Solutions,
Inc., P.O. Box 24769, West Palm
Beach, FL 33416. The same dead-
line applies to consumers com-
pleting the form online.


Easter bunnies may not be a good idea


If you're tempted to surprise
your child with a bunny or chick
on Easter morning, Dr. Bonnie
Beaver, an animal behavior
expert at Texas A&M University's
College -of Veterinary Medicine
and Biomedical Sciences, sug-
gests you think over the idea
carefully you may end up with
more eggs in your basket than
you can handle.
Dr. Beaver says it's usually not
a good idea to give someone a
surprise pet.
A child getting a pet as a gift
should know about it before-
hand so he or she can be
involved in the decision-making
process. The.child should have a
say in the selection of an animal
he or she will have for the next
several years," Dr/ Beaver says.
Many times, after the novelty
of a new bunny or chick wears
off, the child loses interest. "If
this happens," says Beaver, "the
responsibility for the animal's
care may fall to a parent, which
is often not what the- parent


wants. This can result in pet bun-
nies and chicks being taken to
shelters or abandoned."
Another important considera-
tion when giving a bunny or
chick as an Easter gift is the
expense of maintaining these
animals. There are ongoing feed-
ing expenses as well as the cost
to spay or neuter rabbits (the
cost is much greater if you don't)
and regular veterinary check-ups
to keep your pet healthy.
Apart from the financial
expenses though, bunnies and
chicks require a time expense
because you must feed and
clean their living areas daily as
well as spend time with them
frequently. When they grow up,
these animals will need more
space than they did as babies.
You will need to create an
area for chickens to roost or buy
bunnies a larger cage because
they are active and need exer-
cise. Also, in some regions,
keeping chickens outdoors is
against zoning-regulations, so


the giver -of a bunny or chick
should look into the restrictions
around the recipient's home.
If you've been successfully
dissuaded from buying your
favorite child an Easter bunny or
chick, don't despair. There are
many other. ways to surprise
your child on Easter. Chocolate
bunnies can often have the same
pleasing affects on children as
the real thing.
Dr. Bd~ver says, "If you are
considering giving a child a pet
for Easter, show the recipient a
picture of, a pet or give him or
her some information about the
animal and let him or her go
later to select one. This way, you
and your child can learn more
about the pet together and
decide whether getting one is a
good idea or not.
"Also, sometimes giving a
stuffed toy to a youngster lets the
child know a pet is coming and
he or she can be part of the deci-
sion on which one to select," Dr.
Beaveradds.


"When you need a service, call a professional!"
