Session has local impact


TALLAHASEE With the 2005
Legislative Session behind him, Sen-
ator JD Alexander (R-Lake Wales)
and area lawmakers took a moment
to review some of the critical legisla-
tion that passed this Session.
"With the completion of the
2005 Session, one of the most
important things I will do in the
coming weeks is return home and
explain how the legislation we
passed over the last 60 days will
affect the communities and con-
stituents I represent," explained


Senator Alexander. "At the end of
Session, I make a point to not only
disseminate how specific legisla-
tion will affect my district, but also
how certain bills will affect the
entire state. I think it is important
for our citizens to understand the
direction in which the state as a
whole is moving."
One of the Legislature's major
accomplishments at the statewide
level is the passage of a compre-
hensive and balanced budget,
which allocates a total of $63.1 bil-


lion to fund services and programs
across the state. Reflecting fiscal
responsibility, accountability, and
efficiency, the budget includes a
historic $1.8-billion increase for
Florida's education system, which
marks an increase of 7.8 percent
over last year's funding.
The budget further appropri-
ates $387.1 million in new General
Revenue to implement the volun-
tary Pre-K program for four-year-
olds, in addition to providing $35.8
million in additional funding for

Patrick Smith's



real Florida


A sense of place
Another extraordinary
honor has been awarded the
man who is affectionately
known as Florida's Favorite
Son, Patrick D. Smith. Satur-
day, May 14, at the National
Tupelo Film Festival in Tupelo,
Mississippi, the Ron Tibbet
Award, which is the Festival's
Grand prize, went to the DVD
documentary titled Patrick
Smith's Florida, A Sense Of
Place. The entire festival was
in honor and dedicated to the
late Ron Tibbett, founder of
the festival, who passed'away
within the last year.
A Sense Of Place is notably
a family affair. The documen-
tary was produced by Patrick
Smith, Jr., whose company
Panorama Studios of Cam-
bria, California, worked for
two years to produce this
award-winning DVD that fea-


tures not only son Rick's
expertise in directing/produc-
tion/writing but also includes
original music by a grandson,
artwork by a daughter-in-law,
and photography by several
family members. Individually
.and as a group they all
worked tirelessly between
California and Florida to pro-
duce this once-in-a-lifetime
documentary.
About the Tupelo Festival
award, Rick says, "Immediate-
ly after the presentation
guests crowded around say-
ing essentially the same thing
over and over...that never
before had they been so taken
. back to their own roots, their
own sense of another time,
another place. It all became
very. emotional," Rick said. "I
just so regret that my father
could not be there."

Quilts: The ancient art


By Barbara Oehlbeck
The ancient art of quilt mak-
ing is alive and well at West
Glades Elementary School.
No doubt our ancestors
delved into this hand-made activ-
ity more than we.do in the 21st
century, however, the art has sur-
vived and now enjoys even more
patterns than it did way back
then. Yet the stitchery of quilts
made by our kinsmen a century
or more ago is considered heir-
looms and some even collector's
items. In fact, when sold at public
or private auctions, some of the'
quilts bring staggering prices.
Who knows who borned the
idea of honoring the principal of
West Glades Elementary with a
hand-made, love-made quilt. We
do know that the students want-


ed to do something special to
honor this the school's inau-
gural year, and that they did. The
important part is that it was done,
and that with painstaking care,
talent and devotion, and with all
the students in all the classes
involved. Each class named a
classmate to be the "chosen"
artist for the quilt project. Howev-
er a number of times other stu-
dents "helped" in some way, that
is, designing or painting the "pic-
ture" that would represent that
particular class.
The quilt represents the
"work art" of students in every
class at the school. And when
they were all finished, it was Bon-
nie Marchal who performed the
final task of arranging the individ-
ual squares on a background of


May-green material, and further-
more doing whatever had to be
done for it to become a finished
quilt.
The students were not told
what "picture" they were to paint
for their principal's quilt. They are
all original, no two alike. Each
one represents an activity of
some sort of each class.
Bonnie Marchal is herself an
artist. Her talents and achieve-
ments include work in fine artis-
tic stitchery, jewelry making,
teaching skills to enrich student's
reading and math, and as the
principal himself, Larry Russell
Luckey, says, "She does wonder-
ful things that enhance the
teacher's ideas. And, she also

Buckle up: Seat belts save lives


An auto accident reported on
the weekend television news
caught my attention. A teenage
driver apparently lost control of his
vehicle, resulting in a fatal crash.
"My son would probably still be
alive if he had worn his seat belt,"
said the grieving father.
The man urged all parents
watching to make sure their chil-
dren wear their seat belts.
Traveling by automobile can be
dangerous. You can't control what
the other drivers on the road will
do. If you are a passenger, you have
even less control of the situation.
But you can control one aspect of
your own safety when you decide
whether or not you put on a seat
belt.
The Florida Highway Patrol has
spent a lot of time and money try-
ing to get that message across: Seat
belts save lives.
Statistics from the Florida
Department of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles show that more
than half the drivers and occupants
in crashes suffer no injuries
because they used' seat belts,


A

airbags or both.
Nearly 60 percent of those who
die in auto accidents were not
wearing their seat belts.
Seat belts don't save people
every time sometimes the
impact is too severe. But they offer
crucial protection, first from the
aftershocks of every collision,
according to the FHP.
An object in motion tends to
stay in motion. In a car crash, the
vehicle may be stopped, but every-
thing in it that is not fastened down
keeps moving. This force can
throw the car's occupants forward
- even through or out a window.
In the case of rollover accidents,

those ejected from the vehicle can
wind up underneath it.
Airbags are an important safety
tool, but they don't take the place
of seat belts.
How can you make sure your
teenage children buckle up? Make
it a habit that becomes automatic.
Insist that every person in your car
wears a seatbelt. And since chil-
dren learn best from example -
make sure they always see their
parents buckle up as well.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult 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".

Chandler was a real Okeechobee 'baby boomer'


By MaryAnn Morris
OKEECHOBEE The city of
Okeechobee, on the northern
. shore of the big lake, has existed
as a settlement for over 100
years, as an incorporated town,
90 years as of this year. Time has
seen it grow in spite of the death
and destruction of hurricanes,
World War I, the desperate
poverty of the Great Depression
and World War II. After World
War II, Okeechobee's soldiers
came home to their ranches,
farms, their town and their fami-
lies.
So, now, 50 years later, mem-
bers of the Post War Baby Boom
share their memories, recalling
the past half century.
Noel Chandler, born here in
1946, grew up in Okeechobee,
'and except for a short stay in
Basinger, has always made his
home in Okeechobee. Mr. Chan-
dler serves on the Okeechobee
City Council and sees new peo-
ple come, and come and come,
"New people come, yes and

they have different views, but
then they stay and see how we

"There's not quite the same

people, but the people who
come and stay want to be a part
of us.

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true
that if you see a bird eating a cer-
tain berry, insect, or bug; that
you could consider it to be non-
toxic? Thanks Doc, Tanya in Pt.
St. Lucie.
A: Well hey there Tanya! For
the most part yes! However, not
100 percent of the time. Birds
have a learned instinct too. In
some cases they have to eat
something that makes them
sick, so to
learn not to

behavior a .
second time.
Berries proba-
bly do not fall
into this cate-
gory. So, yes!
Birds do have
a special berry
ESP so to speak. As far as insects
are concerned, some of them
mimic each other as a survival
tool. Oh boy, now were going
back to my Evolutionary Biology
Class at FIU! This mimicry is
called "Batesian Mimicry". A
classic example of this, is the
mimicry between the Vicroy
Moth, and the Monarch Butter-
fly. (My favorite college profes-
sor Dr. Susan Koptur would be
so proud I remembered!) The
Vicroy looks almost exactly like
the Monarch, but just a tad
smaller. The Monarch is very
good eating, and the Vicroy
makes a bird vomit. So, if a bird
eats a Vicroy and vomits, he
probably won't try to eat any-
thing that looks like a Vicroy or
Monarch. Unless, he needs to
make the same mistake twice in
order to learn the lesson. (Kinda
a lot like many humans. Ha!) So
Tanya, I guess the moral to this
story is don't eat berries, bugs or,
insects unless they are properly
packaged for sale at the grocery
store! Best Wishes, Doc Savvy.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. What is a


safe, inexpensive product to use
in your home to prevent flea
infestation? We love your radio
show Jessica and Eric in Lox-
ahatchee.
A: Well thank you for tuning
in guys! Ok, I have to premise
this answer by saying that flea
control is in three places. Con-
trol and treatment of the outside
environment, inside environ-
ment, and on the pet! If you
don't do all three with a safe and
effective product, you will NOT
get the fleas under control. Even
if you do all three, you will still
see an occasional flea. This is
part of being a Floridian. My
favorite choice to control the
fleas inside the home is a prod-
uct called "20 Mule Power
Borax". It's simply an old brand
of laundry detergent. It can be
safely sprinkled on carpets, pet
bedding, and area rugs, and left
for a few days before vacuum-
ing. Now, this is non-toxic to
pets, but please don't think it is
okay for your pet to sit there and
lick it off the run! It will cause
vomiting and diarrhea! Keep the
pets away from treated areas
until it is vacuumeeoffi I recom-
mend that this is repeated every
2 weeks until things are under
control. Some folks do it year
round. If you have mostly tile,
then just do pet bedding and
area rugs. Remember, use a
quality VETERINARY ONLY flea
product on your pet, and, con-
sult your local hardware store
for a safe and effective recom-
mendation for your yard. Hope
that helps Jessica and Eric! Take
care, Doc Savvy.

E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com and check
out your pet answers weekly in
the "Pet Comer". Be sure to tune
into "The Savvy Vet Show" each
and every Thursday at 10.30 am
on 93.5FM's The Big Dawgl

control systems needed to be
retrofitted and maintained," he
said.
The dike and flood control
structures around the lake were
built after the hurricanes of 1928
and 1929 resulted in the destruc-
tion of the towns around the
lake and thousands of drowning
deaths, as the lake literally
sloshed back and forth with the
changing winds. These improve-
ments were started under
Franklin D. Roosevelt's Work
Progress Administration Pro-
gram (W.P.A.), guided by the
Army Corps of Engineers. This
work during the Depression kept
Okeechobee working through
the 1940s to be completed dur-
ing Herbert Hoover's presiden-
cy. Then another hurricane in
1947 made even further
improvements necessary.
During the mid 1950s, the
dairy farms were being pushed
out of Dade County by land
developers, and began moving
to Okeechobee County for open
grazing land. Until then, Okee-
chobee County had only one
dairy.


"The old ditches had to be
cleaned out and maintained and
new ones put in. Everybody
wanted to drain their land into
Water Management's canals to
get more grazing land it was a
big issue," said Mr. Chandler.
"More and more ditches and
canals had to be built and a ter-
rific amount of work was need-
ed to upgrade existing facilities.
"Farmers wanted more and
more land for grazing cattle, and
that meant it had to drain," said
Mr. Chandler. "Now they're
working to put in the filter
marshes and ponds that were
drained before."
Generations of Mr. Chan-
dler's family have been Officers
of the Florida Audubon Society,
working to protect delicate habi-
tats of nesting birds around
Okeechobee and Central Flori-
da.
"My great-uncle Marvin
Chandler brought the Audubon
Society out here. My father and
uncle served as officers as well. I
was with Audubon for 13 years
myself," he said.

What is it we bring to others?
Ourselves! I've read where the
first four minutes are the most
crucial ones in determining
what our relationships with oth-
ers will be.
Often, we will meet someone
and "really like" them or "don't
like" them in a few minutes. It
seems to have nothing to do
with what we talk about or who
else was present. Martin Buber,
a theologian from another gen-
eration, pointed out that what
transpires among us takes place
at many levels. There is a con-
scious level; related to what we
see and what we hear, perhaps
what we smell or how we may
be touched.
There are also other levels
that go on when we meet peo-
ple too. A group of us reflected
on a comment by a minister
who met someone and-Said, "I
know she is Indian!" We advised
that the simplest way would be
to ask her. He did and reported
that she said she was part Indi-

metal trophy was designed by
nationally known Richard


the three major .monotheistic
religions of our world, it's not
hard to grasp that there has been
fierce competition and even
bloody conflict over this holy
piece of real estate. Such war-
fare has broken out multiple
times, and Kingdom of Heaven
takes a look at what might have
happened between the Second
and Third Crusades, showing us
a colorful clash of personalities,
cultures, regions and religions.
Orlando Bloom plays the
heroic peasant who becomes a
knight and saves a kingdom. At
the heart of the film, though, is
the honorable code of the
knight, fairness, faith and chival-
ry, right and honorable action.
But the film once again raises
the question as to whose action
was right in the age of the Cru-
sades. Was it the- action of the
Knights Temblor, the warrior
monks who wanted Jerusalem
for the Christians? Or was it the
action of Saladin, the Turk and
Muslim paladin who conquered
Jerusalem in 1187?
These questions are coming
up again as the film appears in
theaters across the country.
According to The New York
Times, a Catholic scholar has
stamped it fair and a Muslim


McGeehee. Rick says it is so
large and heavy that he had to
take it to a specialty shipping
company to have .it shipped to
his studios in California.
The DVD film shows Patrick
Smith speaking to all of us who
love Florida, all of Florida, from
her northernmost part in the
Panhandle, down through the
lake country of central Florida,
through south Florida, the Ever-
glades and the Keys.
And about the award itself,
Patrick says, "I think it's wonder-
ful that a film of Florida could
win a top award in another state.
I know my son worked very hard -
on this project and I'm glad this
happened for him".

scholar has cried foul. A number
of British scholars have come to
the opposite conclusion, stating
that the film distorts history to
portray Arabs in a favorable'
light. Who's right?
A crusader was so-called
because he was someone who
took the sign of the cross. It was
often emblazoned across his
shield, or his garments. In a cer-
emony, he knelt, and solemnly
swore that he would say' his
vows at the Church of the Holy
Sepulcher, or die in the attempt.
Those who did make it to
Jerusalem, made their. way to
the church, and thrust their
sword into the ground, and star-
ing at its cruciform shape and
said their vows. This is also the
way many of them died on the


battlefield the last image they
saw was the image of the cross.
But the film leaves us with a
question. Where should we be
standing today, as Christians
who trace our history moves
back not only to the Crusades,
but also to the apostles? It is cer-
tainly true that your Christian
history moves from the cross to
the Crusades, but it goes far
beyond the Middle Ages as well.
We have to ask ourselves if we,
as 21st century crusaders, are
showing theworld a raised cross
or a raised sword? The bottom.
line is this, When people look at
us, they should see a Christian
code at work. Everything we do
should be marked by right
action, fairness, integrity, and
faith.

Moore Haven Elementary students are learning about the
perils of the Western Gray Whale and what they can do to
make a difference.


Moore Haven
Elementary
Moore Haven Elementary
sponsored an Earth Day Letter
Drive 2005, in what teachers hope
will become an annual event.
Earth Day was April 22, and each
class wrote letters to Credit Suisse
First Boston in efforts to save the
Western Gray Whales.
There are only about 100 of
these enormous creatures left on
earth. The bank is helping Shell
Oil Company drill for oil near
Sakhalin Island, which is home
for the whales. The project could
put the Western Gray Whale into
extinction forever. Writing letters
can be a positive and empower-
ing experience for students,
demonstrating that their actions
can make a difference. Together,
we can help save Planet Earth.

Lady Ten
By Mark Young
Following their district champi-
onship romp last week, the Moore
Haven Lady Terriers softball squad
continued to pick up momentum
by thrashing Tampa Prep in their
first ever regional championship
tournament appearance.
The clay diamond sparkled for
the Lady Terriers who started off
the action with a bang when Sierra
Dionne led off the game with a drag
bunt base hit. Two more bunt sin-
gles from Ashanti Shepherd and
Kara Anderson loaded up the bags
and Dionne would touch home
plate on a fielder's choice RBI from
Chantell Morris.
Moore Haven opened up the
game with a 1-0 lead, but blew
open the doors in the second
inning when Tampa Prep gave up a
walk and an error, putting a pair of
Lady Terriers in scoring position for
Dionne's second trip to the plate.
Dionne made Tampa Prep pay for
their mistakes with a RBI single fol-
lowed by a RBI single from Shep-
herd. Mary Randolph and Susan
Mathis were the first two on the
bags and good base running,
including a stolen bag from Mathis
allowed both runners to score.


riers topple- Tampa


In all, the Lady Terriers crossed
five runners across home plate to
open up a 6-0 advantage. Moore
Haven added another run in the
fourth inning when a pair of errors
allowed Morris to pick up a RBI sin-
gle, as the Lady Terriers jumped out
to a 7-0 lead after four innings of
play.
Tampa Prep closed the gap in
the top of the fifth, scoring a pair of
runs, but the Lady Terriers cush-
ioned their advantage in the bot-
tom of the sixth, scoring a trio of
runs off of a pair of walks, two
errors, two passed balls, a pair of
stolen bags, and a RBI single from
Morris.
Moore Haven's dream season
continued after winning their first
district championship, they con-
cluded their first regional appear-
ance with a solid 10-2 victory over
Tampa Prep, but the reward was to
face the number one team in -
McKeel Academy.
The Lakeland squad found
themselves up against a feisty Lady
Terrier squad and the result was
scoreless battle through the first
four innings of action. McKeel
eventually held a small 1-0 advan-
tage and took advantage of one big
inning to bring the Lady Terriers'


season to a conclusion.
Moore Haven head coach, Chris
Goodwin, said his squad came out
against McKeel' Academy a little
nervous and a little flat, but could-
n't be prouder of his squad's 18-10
overall record, their district champi-
onship, and the fact they advanced
in regional competition. According
to coach Goodwin, this year's per-
formance brings much excitement
for the future of this very young ball
club.
"We only lose one player on
next year's team," he said. "We will
be back with avengance. Look out
FHSAA 2006 State Finals here
we come."
The team wished to extend a
special thank you to Lisa Randolph
(scorekeeper), Kathy Mathis
(announcer), Dawn and Doug
Manke, and Mr. and Mrs. McQuern
for being so supportive to the
squad.
"Thanks to all of our sponsors
that support us each year and all of
the other parents and fans," said
coach Goodwin. "Mrs. Janice
Brown is to receive special recogni-
tion for all of her hard work that she
contributes to Moore Haven High
School's athletic programs."

election of large-scale photographs
and paintings by Seminole and
non-Seminole artists, with the most
inspiring piece a two-story mural
by the late Native American self-
trained artist Fred Beaver, who
painted it on the wall of the A-
framed arts and crafts center of the
original Okalee Village hence
the painting's triangular shape.
The original Okalee Village
opened in 1960 on U.S. 441 about
where the entrance to the Semi-
nole Hard Rock is now located. For
more than 40 years, it offered South
Floridians a window to the Semi-
nole Tribe and provided a means
for Tribe members to market their
goods. Okalee Village was demol-
ished in 2002 to make way for con-
struction of the Seminole Hard
Rock complex, but the mural and
other important artifacts were pre-
served.
Part of Big
Cypress Museum
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at
Okalee Village is an offshoot and
preview center of the original Ah-
Tah-Thi-Ki Museum on the Semi-
nole Tribe's Big Cypress Reserva-
tion, north of Alligator Alley and
about midway across Florida. The
Big Cypress museum, which
opened Aug. 21, 1997, offers a
comprehensive look at the history
and culture of the Seminole Tribe
of Florida. Both museums are
under the leadership of Tina Osce-
ola, named executive director in
2004 following, the death of long-
time museum director Billy
Cypress. According to Osceola, the
Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at Okalee
Village fits the urban setting of the
Seminole Hollywood Reservation,
central to the five million residents
of South Florida.
"The new museum offers a
good introduction to the history
and culture of the Seminole Tribe,"

counties. For example, legislation
entitled the "Lake Okeechobee Pro-
tection Program" seeks to acceler-
ate the implementation of the Lake
Okeechobee Plan in order to more
quickly meet the goals and objec-
tives of the plan. The bill also estab-
lishes the Legislature's intent to pro-
vide funding on a continual basis in
order to implement the plan.
"The health of Lake Okee-
chobee is directly linked to the eco-
nomic well-being of Florida,"
noted Senator Ken Pruitt (R-Port St.
Lucie), a major architect of the bill.
Another bill affecting area coun-
ties allocates $3.5 million for a rural
hospital capital improvement grant
program. Likewise, lawmakers

knows and practices the common
sense 'art' of making her small
budget stretch to do what needs to
be done. We hardly know what title
to bestow upon Bonnie. But in all
seriousness, she is a Paraprofes-
sional at West Glades Elementary
School as well as an art and com-
petence instructor. And at present
is the Support Personnel of the
Year."
And then Larry Russell says,
"How touched can anyone be with
such a thoughtful gift? I'm not often
lost forwards, but this time I am."
Quilting is considered one of the
embroidery arts and is practiced all
over theworld, not only for the gen-
eral use of beds but during the Mid-
dle Ages soldiers wore padded quilt
coats and hoods under.their armor.


says Osceola. "Visitors can quickly
gain an understanding of the Tribe,
and see unique exhibits that reflect
various aspects of tribal life."
According to Osceola, the exhibits
will change periodically through-
out the year, so every visit will
showcase something new.
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at
Okalee Village opens with an inter-
esting combination of exhibits. The
entrance gallery includes a series of
illustrated panels to provide guests
with an overview of the history of'
the Seminole Tribe. Topics include
"Early Roots and Migration, Trou-
ble Finds Us, We Lived in Peace, A
Time of Prosperity, The World
Around Us Changes, We Face a
Turning Point and A New Indepen-
dence."
The entrance gallery also
includes information on each of
the Seminole Tribe's Florida reser-
vations. More than 3,000 members
of the Seminole Tribe of Florida live
throughout the state, including
reservations in Hollywood, Big
Cypress, Brighton, Immokalee,
Tampa and Fort Pierce.
Historic
Seminole Dolls
Two 70-year-old Seminole dolls,
both less than a foot tall and from
the 1930s era, are on display in the
entrance gallery. The body of the
male doll is made of wood and is
dressed in a big shirt with fabrics of
orange, green, black, beige and
navy blue. The doll wears a scarf
with a beaded slide and a hat of
carved wood. The body of the
female doll is made. from tightly-
woven palmetto fronds and is
dressed in a cape and skirt, with
beaded earrings and necklace.
The Treasures Room features a
1923 big shirt worn by either Jack
or Charlie Tigertail. Big shirts are
the traditional one-piece garments
worn by Seminole men in the
1800s and early 1900. A typical big
shirt extended to the knees, with a
belt to cinch it in at the waist. The
1923 shirt predates the colorful


passed transportation and economic
development measures, which seek
to assist small and rural counties.
Among these bills is the provi-
sion of $25 million for the Small
County Resurfacing Assistance Pro-
gram, and $5.4 million for the Small
County Outreach Program.
Additionally, as Chairman of the
Senate Education Appropriations
Committee, Senator Alexander
played a key role in ensuring that all
of Florida's counties receive equal
funding for education, instead of
certain counties receiving additional
funding due to cost of living factors.
"It is time to adopt a broader
vision of our education policies,
including a fair overhaul of school
funding," united Senator Alexander.
"It is critical that we work to ensure
fair and adequate funding for all
districts, instead of some districts
receiving additional money at the


In 1540, Catherine Howard, who
later became the fifth wife of Henry
VIII of England, was presented with
23 silk quilts from the royal
wardrobe as a mark of royal favor.
, Which all goes to show that the
gift of a quilt is not a minor offering.
And the Dutch and English
colonists brought along quilts to
protect them from the severe cold
of American Winters.
Quilting was one of the favorite
home arts in the colonies. Women
and girls wore quilted petticoats
with warm wool interlinings. All
sorts of colorful scraps of new or
used materials were routinely
stored in the "quilt box" for the
making of quilts especially during
the winter months when the
weather was too cold for outside
activities.
The opportunity for originality
runs the proverbial gamut. Painting
squares for a quilt, as for the West


Seminole patchwork clothing.
Evolution of the
patchwork artistry
The main exhibit gallery
includes a chronological display of
more than two-dozen items of
Seminole clothing, including a blue
big shirt with stripes that dates to
1916 or 1917. The colorful progres-
sion of skirts, capes and jackets
showcases the evolution of Semi-
nole creativity, from the develop-
ment of patchwork in the early 19th
century. It also shows the early use
of fabrics like silk, plus a shiny mate-
rial from the 1930s that resembles
rayon. Also on display is an intricate-
ly beaded bandolier shoulder bag
and sash dating to about 1830, mak-
ing it one of the oldest objects in the
museum's collection. Seminole
men wore bandolier bags over their
shoulders in order to carry ammu-
nition, tobacco and other valuables.
Importance
of the Canoe
The main exhibit gallery
includes a 22-foot dugout canoe
carved at Okalee Village in the early
1960s. The exhibit details the impor-
tance of the canoe in tribal life, as it
was an important tool in trading,
hunting, fishing and the ongoing
movement of Seminoles through-
out the Florida Everglades. Canoes
were loaded with pelts, plumes and
hides to be traded for provisions,
which were loaded into Seminole

cypress tree, the canoe on display
was actually used in the water at the
original Okalee Village, typically
with a tribal member standing near
the rear and using a pole in the
water to move the canoe along.

in the A-framed arts and crafts cen-
ter of the original Okalee Village.
The mural was removed and pre-
served prior to the demolition of
th&earts and crafts center in 2002 in
order to make way for the con-
struction of the Seminole Hard
Rock Hotel & Casino.
Another display in the main
gallery includes a collection of
paintings and photographs by
Seminole and non-Seminole
artists. Many of the mounted black
and white photographs are attrib-
uted to William Boehmer, who in
1938 became the first teacher at the
Seminole school built on the
Brighton Reservation and earned
the trust of tribal members. For
more than 30 years,- he used his
camera to capture everyday Semi-
nole life. Boehmer also document-
ed Fred Beaver's painting of the
two-story mural at the Okalee Vil-
lage arts and tafts center.
Fifteen giant portraits of Semi- I
noles surround the main exhibit
gallery and hang near the top of the
20-foot walls. Among the subjects
are Billy Bowlegs III, who celebrated
his 100th birthday at the old Okalee
Village. Also pictured are Joe Dan
Osceola, a former chairman of the
Tribe and the first Seminole to grad-
uate from high school, and Cory
Osceola, grandfather of museum
executive director Tina Osceola
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at
Okalee Village shares its Seminole
Paradise location with the Okalee
Village attraction, featuring exhibits
of live animals, as well as alligator
wrestling and other shows, and a
gift shop of Seminole Indian and
related merchandise.
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum at
Okalee Village is open from 9 a.m.
to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
It is located on U.S. 441 north of
Stirling Road. Admission is $6 for

Board authorizes public process


At the regularly scheduled meet-
ing of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District on May 11, the
Governing Board authorized the
publication of a Notice of Rule
Development to begin a public
process to develop rules that will
enhance water quality treatment in
much of Southwest Florida.
The Governing Board action
comes after several months of col-
laborative meetings with environ-
mental and development groups to
solicit input on water quality con-
cerns in Southwest Florida.
"The coordination and cooper-


ation from the divergent groups we
have met with has greatly con-
tributed to our ability to set criteria
that will not only enhance water
quality, but will also give clear
direction to the development com-
munity on water quality require-
ments," said Alice Carlson, District
Governing Board member. "I am
hopeful that the expanded public
process we go through in Rule
Development will allow for addi-
tional input from the public."
Currently, applications are
reviewed and evaluated on a proj-
ect-by-project basis for additional


treatment measures to provide
assurances that the project will not
cause or contribute to the contin-
ued impairment of water bodies. A
basin rule would provide clear cri-
teria regarding the reasonable
assurances necessary to demon-
strate that a project will not cause
or contribute to continued impair-
ment.
A basin rule will also minimize
potential for healthy waters to
become impaired and may reduce
the cost and difficulty of restoring
impaired waters.
"Most projects in the Southwest


Lake Okeechobee fishing s


By Loma Jablonski
OKEECHOBEE Despite dirty
water and a large algae bloom,
bass fishing continues to be good
on Lake Okeechobee according to
local anglers and fishing guides.
"Fishing is good because fish
adapt to poor lake conditions, but
you can't count on catching them
in the same spot from day to day,"
stated long-time angler and profes-
sional fishing guide Larry Wright.
"They move around in search of
clear water and you have to go out
and find them."
Thursday, May 12V, Wright pulled
in 98 bass including a lunker that
topped the 10-pound mark.
At last week's Christian Team
Trail Classic the top six finishers
brought in a combined total weight
of 85.29 lbs. of bass from safe light
to 1 p.m.
The anglers in the Headturn-
ers3.com two-day tournament in
March brought 529.64 pounds of
bass to the scale. Ninety-nine per-
cent were released back into the
lake. In April, 635.62 pounds of
bass hit the scale in the Headturn-
ers3.com two-day tourney with
another 99 percent being released
back into the dirty water of Lake
Okeechobee.
The algae bloom is large
according to Don Fox, fisheries
biologist with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC).
"We saw a large algae bloom
from Little Grassy Island to Obser-
vation Shoal," stated Mr. Fox. "If the
wind blows in the right direction, it

has not affected fishing according to local anglers and
guides. The bloom, said fisheries biologist Don Fox, stretch-
es from Little Grassy Island to Observation Shoal.


should work its way toward shore
and break up. The water is
extremely dirty; Aquatic plant life
cannot grow in these conditions.
The sunlight cannot permeate the
muddy water and reach the vegeta-
tion at the bottom of the lake."
He went on to explain that bass
are the top predators among fish in
Lake Okeechobee. They will eat
anything, so their numbers are still
good, said Mr. Fox. But, something
has to be done to clear up the water
so that the plants that help feed fish
at the lower end of the food chain
will grow and provide bait fish with
food.
The water in Lake Okeechobee
is currently at approximately 14.6
feet above sea level.


"We are going into the normal
rainy season, with the start of the
2005 hurricane season just two
weeks away. In order for bottom
plants to grow, the lake level will
have to be dropped to 12 feet or
even lower and kept that low until
plants begin to grow and get 'a
good hold of the earth before
allowing the lake to rise again,"
said Mr. Fox.
Captain Terry Garrels, a guide at
Roland Martin's Marina in Clewis-
ton and the owner of "Big 0" Air-
boat Tours, stated, "Something
should have been done a long time
ago. Everything we gained a few
years ago is gone. Last year's hurri-
canes were only a small part of
what has happened to Lake Okee-


Florida region ultimately discharge
to water bodies designated as Out-
standing Florida Waters or identi-
fied as impaired by the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection", said Carlson. "We believe
that, if adopted, these new rules
will help us protect our sensitive
water bodies."
After publication of the Notice
of Rule Development the District
will publish a schedule of public
workshops for the purpose of solic-
iting public input in developing the
new rule.


till good
chobee. We need to clean this lake
up no matter what it takes."
The towns around Lake Okee-
chobee depend on the lake. It
brings in tourists and fishermen. It
provides water to large cities to the
south and enjoyment and income
to the thousands who live and
work on it.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) met
Wednesday, May 11, to discuss the
plight of Lake Okeechobee. After
hearing from officials such as
Susan Gray, director of the district's
Lake Okeechobee division,' the
board agreed that the district might
have to take drastic measures to
clean up the lake. The measures
include creating man-made
drought conditions by dropping the
lake level to 12 feet, and installing
temporary pumps to move water
between the lake and surrounding
farms and utilities.
If they decide to drop the lake
level, it will be sometime' next April.
The board approved $5.1 million in
contracts for a filter marsh and the
expansion of a storm-water treat-
ment area both north of Lake
Okeechobee.
"Officials have known about the
problems with the lake for
decades," stated Mr. Garrels. "Now
is the time to take action, not next
April. We're in dire trouble now.
They've been putting off dealing
with the ever-growing problems
and passing them along through
the years. Something must be done
about the lake now, while we still
can."

The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is the steward for
approximately 375,000 acres of
public land. Over the years, the
agency has taken great strides to
expand public recreational use
opportunities on land purchased
with public dollars and it keeps
getting better.
As the agency continues its
aggressive pace to acquire land for
Everglades restoration and other
ecosystem restoration and water
resource projects, it is taking proac-
tive efforts to enhance and expand
its recreational use program
throughout its 16-county jurisdic-
tion.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is hosting a series
of workshops to gather public feed-
back and comments on rules for
the agency's recreational use pro-
gram. From hiking, fishing, camp-
ing, bird-watching, horseback rid-
ing, nature study, cycling, hunting
and more, the workshops will pro-
vide citizens the opportunity to tell
the District what recreational fea-
tures they would like to see on Dis-
trict-managed public lands while
protecting natural resources and
intended land use priorities. The

Nelson requests new probe of reporter's murder *


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-FL) has
requested that Peru's President
Alejandro Toledo reopen an
investigation into the death of a
Florida newspaper reporter
murdered on the job near a
Peruvian jungle town more than
15 years ago.
The case was shrouded in
secrecy until recently when pub-
lished reports said new evidence
implicated several men linked to
the drug trade in the death of
Tampa Tribune reporter Todd
Smith. Smith, 28, was tortured
and strangled to death while
working on a story about Peru's
coca-region.
Spurred by the new revela-
tions, Nelson on Wednesday for-
mally requested another investi-
gation into Smith's murder. The
request came during an after-
noon telephone call to Peru's
ambassador to the U.S., Eduar-
do Ferrero, who told Nelson
he'd "put all (his) effort into
this."
Nelson described the ambas-
sador's response as encourag-
ing. "I'm hopeful that justice in
this case can finally be served,"
said Nelson, of Florida, who's a
member of the Senate's Foreign
Relations panel. "Todd's parents
and two sisters deserve no less."
In January, Nelson traveled to
Peru and established a relation-
ship with Toledo and Ferrero,
which he hopes will help push
through his request for opening
a new murder probe.
At the time of Smith's death
in 1989, Peruvian officials were
quick to say it was the work of
the Shining Path, a Maoist insur-


gent group linked to protecting
coca-plant. cultivators. Four
years afterward, a secret count-
er-terrorism trial resulted in a
Shining Path guerrilla receiving
30 years in prison in connection
with the murder. He was the
only person ever tried, and
received early release.
Little else was known until
records of the secret trial
emerged last December, includ-
ing an intelligence report identi-
fying a businessman who found-
ed a Peru airline as one of the
masterminds behind Smith's
killing. The court records were
obtained by a Lima-based insti-
tute for a free society.
According to an intelligence
report in those records, the guer-
rillas who tortured and strangled
Smith were working for the
Peruvian businessman identi-
fied in published accounts as
Fernando Zevallos and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade. Zevallos, labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration,
was never charged in the case.
This is not the first time Nel-
son has sought to come to the
aid of an American killed in
another country. He began
working several years ago to
resolve the fate of a Jacksonville
Navy pilot, Scott Speicher, who
was shot down in the first Gulf
War. Nelson's efforts spurred the
creation of a special military unit
to search for him in Iraq. A
report is due qut soon.
(Editor's note: The following
is Senator's Nelson transcribed
speech to the Senate floor.)
May 11, 2005, 6:30 p.m.


Mr. President, just today I ini-
tiated an effort to push Peruvian
President Alejandro Toledo to
reopen an investigation into the
brutal torture-murder of a young
journalist from my state.
The 28-year-old reporter,
Todd Smith, was found dead 15
years ago, his body discovered
in Peru's violent coca-producing
region. This son of a Florida
appellate judge worked for The
Tampa Tribune, and was investi-
gating the drug traffic in the
northern Peruvian jungle.
Officials in Peru were quick
to say the murder was the work
of the Shining Path a Maoist
insurgent group said to be
involved in protecting cultivators
of the coca plant. Specifically,
Peru's Interior Ministry said
Todd had been captured by
Maoist rebels and possibly sold
to drug traffickers for $30,000.
Four years later, a secret
counter-terrorism trial in Peru
resulted in a Shining Path guer-
rilla being sentenced to 30 years
in prison for taking part in the
murder. He was the only person
ever tried for the crime and
even he reportedly has received
an early release.
Little else was known. Now,
however, the transcript of that
secret 1993 trial has emerged,
including an intelligence report
that identifies a businessman
who founded a Peru airline as
one of the masterminds behind
Todd's killing. The complete
court file was obtained by a
Lima-based institute for a free
press and society.
According to one of several
detailed intelligence reports in

Land acquisition approved for Everglades restoration


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues its
aggressive land acquisition pace
for Everglades restoration. The
agency's Governing Board
unanimously authorized the
acquisition of approximately
12,000 acres in Martin County at
its appraised value of $168 mil-
lion ($14,000 per acre). In sup-
port of shared ecosystem
restoration goals, Martin County
Commissioners presented the
Governing Board with a check
for $26.8 million toward the pur-
chase price.
Recreational uses and a park
are being considered by the Dis-
trict and county on open areas of
the property.
"Our shared commitment
with our local partners to restore
and revitalize the greater Ever-
glades ecosystem, which
includes the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon, is
demonstrated with this, gener-
ous check from Martin County,"
said Governing Board Member
Lennart E. Lindahl. "I commend
and thank Martin County for
contributing toward this signifi-
cant acquisition."
The C-44 (St. Lucie Canal)


Reservoir/Storm-water Treat-
ment Area land acquisition -
estimated for completion by the
end of 2009 is one of eight
major restoration projects to be
completed more than a decade
ahead of schedule under the
Acceler8 initiative.
"As a component of the $8
billion federal-state Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration
Plan's Indian River Lagoon
South Restoration Project, the C-
44 (St. Lucie Canal)
Reservoir/STA project will
improve water quality and
reduce storm-water flow to the
St. Lucie Estuary and Indian
River Lagoon, revitalizing fish
and oyster habitats by maintain-
ing desirable salinity levels," said
Ken Ammon, South Florida
Water Management District
executive in charge of the Accel-
er8 program.
An 11-to-12-foot-deep above-
ground reservoir will be con-
structed that will provide addi-
tional water storage for the C-44
basin. The project also includes
storm-water treatment areas to
capture and clean excess-
stormwater runoff before it
enters the St. Lucie Canal and,


ultimately, the St. Lucie Estuary
and Indian River Lagoon,
improving the overall health of
the ecosystem. The project
includes an option for expan-
sion of an additional reservoir
that would be capable 'of-re~uc-
ing the impact-0of-Lake Okee-
chobereglatory. releases to
the estuary..
The 12,000-acre property has
these advantages for the project:
- Ability to increase water
quality treatment flexibility.
Ability to design the storm-
water treatment areas to South
Florida Water Management Dis-.
trict standards using the pre-
ferred emergent vegetation tech-
nology.
Increased design flexibility
in mitigating off-site seepage
impacts.


Increased operational flexi-
bility.
The project allows for a
conservative design with 3,500
to 4,000 acres of reservoir and
7,000 to 8,000 acres of storm-
water treatment areas.
The project is located with-
in 1,000 feet of the main water
source the C-44 Canal (St.
Lucie Canal).
Provided for a recreational
component to be managed by
Martin County.
Funding for the land will be
shared by the state, local govern-
ments and South Florida Water
Management District funds.
The project allows all
storm-water treatment areas to
be situated on the same proper-
ty, increasing operational effi-
ciency.

the trial transcript, the guerrillas
who tortured and strangled Todd
were working for Peru business-
man Fernando Zevallos, and two
others allegedly involved in the
drug trade.
But Zevallos labeled a
Peruvian cocaine kingpin last
year by the Bush Administration
- was never charged in the case.
The New York Times quotes
American and Peruvian authori-
ties as saying he has evaded jus-
tice for so long by bribing court
officials and killing witnesses.
Mr. President, it's been over
15 years since a son of Florida
and a member of the Fourth
Estate was tortured and stran-
gled to death in the jungles of
Peru and clearly, justice has yet
to be served.
In January, I went to Peru.
And there, I established a work-
ing relationship with President
Toledo and was joined by
Ambassador Ferrero, Peru's
ambassador to the United
States.
Today through proper diplo-
matic channels I made a for-
mal request that President Tole-
do immediately reopen the
investigation into Todd Smith's
death; and, that his government
cooperate fully with our State
Department and FBI.
And Ambassador Ferrero told
me he "would put all his effort
into this."
Mr. President, I hope my Sen-
ate colleagues will join me in
demanding that justice finally be
*served in this case. Todd's family
deserves no less.

Indonesian import ias recently
been found in nearly half of Flori-
da's counties. The good news is
that recent UF research has devel-
oped a new liquid bait that will
soon be available, just in time to
battle an expected increase in activ-
ity of this challenging insect pest.
This small black ant received
much attention a couple of years
ago. A native of Southeast Asia, the
White-Footed Ant (WFA) was
found in a Homestead plant nurs-
ery in 1986. Local pest control
companies in our area have seen
them in Okeechobee. This year,
there are now reports of Florida
infestations in the Jacksonville
area. These pests have also spread
from Florida to Columbia, SC,
Baton Rouge, LA, Savannah, GA,


nowhere in large numbers in
kitchens and bathrooms causing
alarm to homeowners. They are
strongly attracted to sugary food
sources, and will often protect sap-
sucking insects like aphids and
scales that secrete honeydew.
University of Florida student
John Warner has conducted
research on the bait preferences of
these insects. Warner also operates
Shalom Pest Control in Boca Raton,
and reports he has received more
calls from new customers about
WFA problems this year than in the
past few years.
Homeowners who see trails of
small black ants often coming from
trees and shrubs and trailing up
and down the sides of their homes
should not wait to take action.


UoU o U UnIU s a iCUn UUUo ea oT, 1 Ioose
mulch, under debris such as news-
paper, fallen coconuts, scrap
wood, etc. in leaf-litter on the
ground and in rain gutters.
Actions that homeowners can
take include cutting trees and
shrubs away from their homes,
and using lots of liquid ant bait
(always maintain a sufficient, fresh
supply).
- Warner determined their
favorite foods sources and
matched them with various insecti-
cides. His work has resulted in a
new liquid bait for WFA called
NecDewtm, which has been
patented by the University of Flori-
da, and will soon be released.
Insecticidal sprays directed
against other sap-sucking insects


INDOOR use. Always be sure to fol-
low the label directions when using
insecticides.
Homeowners might not wish to
tackle the difficult task of dealing
with WFA. Instead, consider con-
tacting local pest control compa-
nies. Consumers with WFA prob-
lems should ask around for a pest
control company with a proven
track record in controlling'this ant.
Warner reports that many of his
new customers had used other
companies that were not able to
control the WFA infestation. He
suggests that homeowners
become more informed about this
ant before calling a pest control
company.

Two small Florida military installations set to close


MIAMI Two small military
installations that employ just
over 200 people are the only
ones in Florida on the Pentagon's
list released Friday of domestic
bases scheduled for closure,
according to a copy of the list
provided to members of Con-
gress.
All of the major military bases
in Florida will remain open,
although some would undergo
realignment that would produce
a net loss of military and civilian
jobs at some bases. In total, how-
ever, the state will gain more
than 2,700 personnel at the 13
bases affected.
The Pentagon list, provided by


Florida congressional officials to
The Associated Press, shows that
two installations are proposed
for closure: the Defense Finance
and Accounting Services in
Orlando, employing 209 people,
and the 12-employee Naval
Reserve Center in St. Petersburg.
U.S. Rep. Tom Feeney, R-
Oviedo, said he was working
with Rep. Ric Keller, the Orlando
Republican whose district
includes the accounting center,
to minimize any negative effects
if it is eventually closed. The
accounting center employs nine
military personnel and 200 civil-
ians.
"He said that it was not a huge


shock. It was something we were
worried about," Feeney said.
The biggest Florida losses in
terms of jobs would occur in a
realignment of the Naval Air Sta-
tion in Pensacola, which would
see a net reduction of 1,579 mili-
tary, civilian and contractor per-
sonnel. Patrick Air Force near
Cape Canaveral would lose 195
personnel under the realignment
and Tyndall Air Force Base in
Panama City would lose 56,
according to the Pentagon pro-
posal.
The biggest gains would be at
Eglin Air Force Base in Florida's
Panhandle, where 2,218 new
personnel would be added, and


at the Naval Air Station in Jack-
sonville, with 2,025 new person-
nel. The Naval Station at Mayport
would gain 410 military and cili-
vian personnel.
Precise details of the gains
and realignments affecting Flori-
da were not immediately avail-
able.
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld is expected to formally
release the list later Friday. The
2005 BRAC Commission will
then have nearly four months to
present a final version to Presi-
dent Bush and Congress, which
must approve or reject it in its
entirety.

WEST PALM BEACH On
May 11, the Health Care District
Board nominated David Goodlett
as Board Chairman. David
.Goodlett is Vice President of Gov-
ernment and Community Rela-
tions for the Sugar Cane Growers
Cooperative of Florida.
"I appreciate the confidence
the District Board expressed by
selecting me as Chairman," says
David Goodlett. "I look forward to
working with the Health Care Dis-
trict as it focuses on expanding
coverage for the uninsured,
enhancing access to health care in
western Palm Beach County, and
ensuring availability of health care
services throughout the county."
Mr. Goodlett was appointed by
Governor Bush in 2000 to serve on
the Health Care District's Govern-
ing Board. Since that time, he has
worked with the Board to advance
countless solutions to meet the


health care needs of Palm Beach
County's residents. In addition to
assisting Health Care District staff
in negotiations with Province
Healthcare Corporation to repur-
chase Glades
General Hospi-
tal in 2003, Mr.
Goodlett estab-
lished a health
care grant pro-
gram for organ-
izations serving
the Glades
community.
Now in its sec- David
ond year, the Goodlett
grant program,
under the leadership of the West-
ern County Health Advisory Com-'
mittee, awarded 12 grants in 2004
totaling $176,000. The Committee
is currently reviewing proposals
for 2005 grant awards.
Mr. Goodlett replaces Randee


S. Schatz who has chaired the Dis-
trict Board since 2002. Other
board officers include Dr. Stanley
Pierce, Vice-Chairman, and Rep-
resentative Irving Slosberg, Secre-
tary.
About the Health Care District:
The Health Care District has
broad health care experience in
Palm Beach County. Funded by ad
valorem taxes, the Health Care
District is responsible for the care
of trauma patients from the point
of injury to rehabilitation. The Dis-
trict funds two Level II trauma
centers and operates Trauma
Hawk for aetomedical transports
in cooperation with 18 other
emergency response organiza-
tions.
As a leader in children's health,
the District operates 160 school
health clinics and employs 200
school nurses who help to ensure
that 165,000 students are healthy


and ready to learn. Additionally,
our children's health program
includes 48 behavioral health pro-
fessionals who work in elemen-
tary schools to address behavioral
and emotional issues for students.
The District is also responsible for
a 198-bed nursing home for resi-
dents who require long-term
skilled nursing care that they can-
not receive at other nursing home
facilities.
A core responsibility for the
Health Care District is to advance
access to health coverage for low-
income residents of Palm Beach
County. This is accomplished
through a network of physicians,
hospitals, pharmacies, and ancil-
lary health care providers. The
Health Care District currently
operates an HMO licensed in the
state of Florida and administers
benefits under the Medicaid pro-
gram.
