Children learn native culture


By Katrina Elsken
BRIGHTON SEMINOLE
RESERVATION "Without lan-
guage and culture, you really
don't have a tribe," said Ken
Fields, Seminole Tribe executive
administrative officer.
Brighton Seminoles Reserva-
tion's "pull out" program helps
keep the Creek language and the
Seminole culture alive through
education of the tribe's youngest
members.
The program is called


"Pemayetv Cuko," which roughly
translates to "our way." One day a
week, the Tribe's elementary
school students attend class at the
reservation instead of in public
school. At the reservation instead
of speaking in English, they are
taught to speak in Creek. In addi-
tion to studying language and his-
tory, they also learn traditional
arts and crafts.
Lesson plans for the students
must meet the Sunshine State
School's criteria set by the State


Department of Education. Both
the Okeechobee County and
Glades County school systems
have endorsed the program.
Currently there are 59 students
in the program. Monday through
Thursday, they attend schools in
Okeechobee and Moore Haven.
On Friday, they go to school at
Brighton.
"This is their school," said
Louise Gopher, education direc-
tor. "They own it. They possess it.
They call it the Indian School and

She said the program has its"
own chickees and garden, which
help the students understand the
historical lifestyle of their ances-
tors.
"The kids can come out and
experience how we lived in chick-
ees and cooked over open fires,"
she said.
Glades County Superintendent
of Schools Wayne Aldrich compli-
mented the Tribe on the educa-
tional program.


"We enjoy your cultural her-
itage and want to make sure you
keep it alive," Mr. Aldrich said. "I
appreciate your allowing our kids
to learn your culture too."
The school day is broken
down into five classes,by grades.

Commission



to amend



landfill deal


By Bill Fabian
MOORE HAVEN A Glades

decision to take legal action to lift
deed restriction on a landfill left
some hope for an eventual reso-
lution to the issue, and even
more hope for a long-term pay-
off of $10 million, a staggering
amount that could solve some
problems for Glades County. The
decision to enter litigation was
made at the Glades County
board meeting Monday, May 23,
at the Glades County Court-
house.
The existing landfill space, if
utilized, could be sold under
contract to a waste company for
landfill use. However, the deed

Glades County and Lykes Broth-
ers agreed to restrict the importa-
tion of waste from outside coun-
ty lines, which has sabotaged
previous negotiations for a land-
fill use- project with companies
such as Waste Management,
Inc., which was close to sealing
a deal with Glades County. How-
ever, an impasse was declared
over the value of the restricted
landfill after two years of costly
negotiations.
The need for lifting the deed
restriction has been discussed..,
for at least a year, when Glades

EMS funding

MOORE HAVEN The
Glades County Board of Com-

funding for the Emergency Med-

would implement a Municipal

An example of a good man


By Barbara Oehlbeck
He probablywas not the most
brilliant politician south of the
Mason-Dixon line, or north of it
for that matter, but he was, and
is, a truly good man whose aim
was the same and is for his
country as for his fellow men.
Jimmy Carter.
As a columnist for a weekly
Lee County newspaper, I knew
that a story is where you find it.
Consequently, one fine day, I saw
a young boy darting off and on,
the road with a big home-made
sign with bold, crooked letters
nailed to a wooden stick reading:
BROWN EGGS FOR SALE REAL
FRESH.
Of course, I have a soft spot
for a kid with blonde hair blow-
ing in the wind, 'and a wide
friendly grin sprinkled with freck-.
les. I stopped and bought eggs -
more than we needed. He was a
bright boy, inquisitive, enthusias-
tic and determined. We talked a
bit and laughed a lot. I live down
"that-a-way" he said, pointing to


a narrow dirt lane.
"School," I asked?
"Yes mam. I like politics 'n his-
tory .the best. I get pretty good
grades -mostly."
Suddenly changing gears, he
asked, "You like Reagan or
Jimmy Carter?"
I was so taken aback I started
stumbling and stammering but
he came to my rescue. "Well," he
began., "I'm tellin' you, I like
Jimmy Carter. Now I like Mr. Rea-
gan, too, but just seems that I
keep on liking Mr. Carter better.
I've read 'bout how good he is to
people in his town in Georgia
that don't have much, and in
other countries, too know
what I mean?"
I told him I understood, trying
not to let him know I was egging
him on to keep talking telling
me what a 10 or 11-year-old
"business boy" was thinking.
The summer sun was bright
and warm and a south wind tou-
sled his blond hair there on the
side of the road. But he didn't let


the conversation deter him from
his "business". As he talked-and I
listened, he kept holding up his
sign to every passing car. Some
stopped, bought eggs and said
they'd come back again.
I stayed there listening and
taking pictures until he'd sold out
of "fresh brown eggs", then
rushed home to write about the
young man in the egg business.
Less than a week after the
story appeared the phone rang,
my husband answered it, then
quickly whispered handing it to
me, "This may be a joke but
somehow I don't think it is."
When I said hello, I heard,
"This is Jimmy Carter. I've just
received a newspaper featuring a
front page story about a young
boy and his brown egg business.
I called the paper and was given
your name and number am I
speaking to ...?" And the conver-
sation went on from there. Yes,
the call was from former Presi-

Want to survive



this hurricane



season? You can


New research shows the
human brain can have difficulty if
faced with too many new factors
at one time. That's why people
sometimes freeze and die -
when they could have escaped
danger. The theory is that it goes
back to survival. When humans
were prey, staying perfectly still
sometimes protected them from
attack by predatory animals.
Firefighters have known the
importance of preparation for a
long time. That's why they stress
the importance -of regular fire
drills.
Planning ahead means you are
ready to handle the emergency.
You don't waste time trying to fig-
ure out what to do. You follow the
plan.
Hurricane planning takes a little
more time than working out fire
escape routes. Hurricanes are
unpredictable, so if your plan is to
evacuate, you need more than one
destination in the "plan," depend-
ing on exactly where the storm's
landfall is protected.
During the last hurricane sea-
son, Floridians learned some
harsh lessons (such as when a
deputy knocks on your door and
tells you that you must evacuate,
you should take it seriously). But

Corps of
Jacksonville The U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers began another
Level 1 pulse release from Lake
Okeechobee to the St. Lucie Canal
and a Level 3 pulse to the Caloosa-
hatchee River Wednesday, May 18
at7a.m.
The Corps South Atlantic Divi-
sion recently approved a tempo-
rary deviation known as Class Lim-
its Adjustment (CLA)to to the normal
operations of Lake Okeechobee
under Water Supply/Environmen-
tal (WSE). CLA is a fine-tuning of

in one summer, they also gained
information that will help them
survive future hurricanes.
Things I learned last summer
include:
Duct tape really does have 1001
uses and in a pinch can be used
to temporarily patch a roof.
Everyone should have a phone
that will work even if the electricity
is off. The older phones (not cord-
less) that don't have answering
machines or other attachments,
may still work when the electricity
is off.
During a hurricane watch, you
should do laundry as often as you
can -you will be glad to still have
clean clothes when the water and
power is off.

Singing for God
There will be a Gospel Festival presented by New Vision,
on Saturday, May 28 at 7:30 p.m. at Tabernacle of Wit-
ness Deliverance Church located in Harlem Academy
Avenue & 9 Street. Featuring Special guest: Gracie
Franklin Cherry, plus other gospel artists.


Engineers makes releases


some of the schedule parameters
to improve the performance of the
regulation schedule. CLA provided
lover volume releases in Zone D to
potentially avoid higher releases
required when the lake is in Zone
C. The deviation will be in effect
through March 15,2007.
Pulse releases are designed to
mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estuar-
ies via the St. Lucie Canal to the
east and the Caloosahatchee River
to the West. They attempt to strike


a balance between the lake's lit-
toral zone and the estuaries. In 10
days, a Level 1 pulse release to the
Caloosahatchee River can lower
the lake 0.07 ft. (average of 1,600
cfs/day), a Level 2 can lower it by
0.10 ft (average of 2,300 cfs/day),
and a Level 3 by 0.13 (average of
3,000 cfs/day). In 10 days, a Level 1
pulse release to the St. Lucie Canal
can lower the lake 0.03ft (average
of 730 cfs/day), a Level 2 can lower
it by 0.04 ft (average of 950

cfs/day), and a Level 3 by 0.05 ft
(average of 1,170 cfs/day).
The lake level, at time of release
was 14.37 feet, which is 0.05 below
the average for this time of year
(based on the period from 1992-
2000), In Zone D of the WSE

Graduation


- Dream big CLASS OF 2005: MOORE HAVEN HIGH


and chase your dreams


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Graduation. Big time. Congrat-
ulations on a job well done! The
emphasis for parents is on WELL,
but we know the emphasis for
graduates is on DONE. Some of
you who are graduating might
have noticed your parents acting
a little sad or a little weird.
Though they have raised you for
this moment of departure, and
are very proud of you, part of
them probably longs to hold you
once more as they did when you
were small. It probably wouldn't
hurt to indulge them a little.
Graduation is both an end and
a beginning. It's an end to one era
of life, but also a beginning to
new opportunities and new
adventures. It's an exciting time of
discovering adulthood and all of
what that means. Of course at this
time, the expectation is that we
should pass on some words of
wisdom. As the graduates begin
this next stage of life, for many
there is a question as to what lies
ahead. We who have "Been there,
Done that, Got the T-Shirt" are
expected to offer advice or
encouragement to get the gradu-
ates going.
I appreciated what Pastor Ed
Corley from the Evangel Assem-
bly of God Church shared with
the 2005 Clewiston High School
Graduates at the Baccalaureate
Service last week. It was not only
good advice for graduates, it is


good advice for each of us as we
head out into the "real" world.
For those who missed it, Pastor
Ed first shared that we need to
make sure that we carry our core
values with us
as we "contin-
ue on". Excel-
lent advice! It's j -. ,
even scriptural!
Paul stated it ;. -
this way in J
Philippians 4:8 i
- "Finally,
Beloved, what-
ever is true, Pastor
whatever is John Hicks
honorable,
whatever is
just, whatever is pure, whatever is
pleasing, whatever is commend-
able, if there is any excellence and
if there is anything worthy of
praise, think about these things."
Paul understood the influence
of one's thoughts on one's life.
What a person allows to occupy
his or her mind will sooner or
later determine his or her speech
and action. Paul's exhortation to
"think about such things" is fol-
lowed by a second exhortation,
"put it into practice". Thinking
about our core values is impor-
tant. Putting them into practice
will result in a life of moral and
spiritual excellence.
As we go forth, we also need
to remember the value of family
and friends. As challenging as
they might be at times, family and
friends are an important part of


the support system for who we
are and what we can become. It
todk me a while to realize this.
Sometimes the prodigal needs to
face the pigpens to realize the
blessing of family. Sometimes the
blessing is realized sooner. Some-
times a burned bridge needs to be
rebuilt. Sometimes the blood rela-
tionships are not there, and a sur-
rogate family needs to be found.
But away with this maudlin!
The exciting challenge for
graduates and for all of us is to
approach life with a can-do spirit.
Dream big and chase your
dreams. You will have your fail-
ures, but you will grow from
every honest effort. And even if
you don't get what you think you
want, amazing things will hap-
pen. Just remember to keep God
in the equation!
Life is filled with possibilities.
Accept the challenge to explore
these possibilities with open
hearts and strong faith, knowing
that you can do all things through
Him who gives you strength.
As you go forth to meet life's
challenges and opportunities,
may God go before you to defend
you, may He come behind you to
protect you, and may He walk
along side of you to befriend you.
May God reside underneath you
to uplift you, may He rest above
you to bless you, and may He
dwell within you to give you
peace, now and forever more!
Amen! >

Crist hails young


girl's survival


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a
statement in response to the lat-
est incidents in which three
young Florida girls were abduct-
ed and sexually abused. In two
of the cases, a convicted crimi-
nal, out on probation, allegedly
has confessed to abducting and
raping girls ages 13 and 7; in the
other case, police rescued an 8-
year-old girl who had been
abducted, raped and left for
dead under rocks and concrete
in a landfill.
"In the past 24 hours, Florida
has borne witness to the all-too-
familiar reports of abduction and
rape of young girls. Mercifully,
this time the shocking incidents
did not end in the ultimate


tragedy of murder, as did the
horrifying cases of Carlie Brucia,
Jessica Lunsford and Sarah
Lunde.
"For the past two years, the
Attorney General's Office has led
the fight for a law to keep violent
probation violators in jail. While
recent statutory changes will
help protect Florida's innocent
children and other potential vic-
tims, this weekend's reports
show that we must do more. I
will continue to fight for this
common-sense legislation.
Meanwhile, we all pray that
Florida's most innocent citizens
are spared from the monstrous
deeds that have already befallen
too many young girls," said Crist.

campaign underway


Starting May 23rd through
June 5th, law enforcement offi-
cers throughout the state of
Florida will be enforcing the
annual Click It or Ticket seatbelt
enforcement campaign.
The safety belt use rate in
Florida is the highest it has ever
been at 76.3 percent but that still
leaves a large portion of Florida's
motorists risking their lives by
riding unbuckled. The Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office is
joining law enforcement across
the state of Florida in an effort to
save those who don't buckle up.
Click It or Ticket, the nation-
wide safety belt, enforcement
wave, is being imAplemented
with public awareness events in
communities across the State.
During this time, state and local
law enforcement throughout
Florida will show zero tolerance
for motorists who fail to use their
safety belts.
Research from the National
Highway Traffic Safety.Adminis-
tration (NHTSA) shows that driv-
ers and passengers who do not


buckle up are approximately 14
times more likely to die in a traf-
fic crash than. those who use
their safety belt. Out of all of the
holidays last year, Memorial Day
Holiday was the deadliest, with
the highest recorded fatality rate
per hour, even surpassing New
Years and Fourth of July.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office believes the only
proven way to get significant
increases in seatbelt use are
through high visibility enforce-
ment and intense advertising in
order to alert people about the
enforcement.
,. With support from NHTSA
and the Florida Department of
Transportation, The' Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office and law
enforcement agencies across
Florida join forces with more
than 12,000 law enforcement
agencies in all 50 states, the Dis-
trict of Columbia and Puerto
Rico in conducting heightened
awareness and enforcement
activities as part of the 2005 Click
It or Ticket effort.


unty targets student drug use


prevalent than tobacco, marijua-
na and other illicit drug use.
Of the students surveyed in
Glades County in 2004, 58.3 per-
cent have used alcohol on at
least one occasion in their life-
times. Middle school students
reported a higher then average
rate of binge drinking (five or
more drinks in a row within the


past two weeks).
The Glades Drug Reduction
Coalition is taking the lead to
educate students, parents and
the community about the risks
associated with underage drink-
ing. The Coalition will be work-
ing with the schools, law
enforcement, businesses and
organizations and others to


increase critical awareness of
alcohol issues within the com-
,munity.

Farm delegation to Washington D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. Flori-
da Farm Bureau Federation
(FFBF) members traveled to
Washington, D.C. this month to
visit with Florida's congressional
delegation concerning issues
important to Florida agriculture,
allowing the Florida delegation to
make informed voting decisions
related to those issues. Nearly 80
members and staff participated in
the three-day event called "Field
to the Hill 2005."
"The investment that ,our
members have made in time and
effort on this trip will pay divi-
dends for Florida agriculture,"
said Carl Loop Jr., president of
Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
"I am pleased that our members
brought important agricultural
issues to Florida's congressional
delegation and to the appropriate
agencies."
Issues the farm group dis-
cussed with congressional mem-
bers included immigration
reform, the national animal iden-
tification program, country-of-ori-
gin labeling and trade issues.
"Building relationships with
staffs and members is essential,"
said Casey Welch, coordinator of
national affairs for Florida Farm
Bureau. "In addition, this was a
great opportunity to have Sen.
Mel Martinez and Congressman
Adam Putnam provide perspec-
tive into the 109th Congress."
FFBF members also met with


officials from the United States
Department of Agriculture Animal
and Plant Health Inspection Ser-
vice, Dr. Richard Dunkle, deputy
administrator for Plant Protection
and Quarantine (PPQ) program,
and Valerie Ragan, assistant
deputy administrator for Veteri-
nary Services. They discussed
country-of-origin labeling
(COOL), national animal identifi-
cation and issues surrounding
plant safeguarding and Quaran-
tine 37.
The USDA has made great
progress in the latest version of
the rules to implement country-
of-origin labeling and the industry
is providing additional sugges-
tions on improving the rules
before they are finally implement-
ed. Efforts now are focused on
providing input to the USDA to
make sure the law is implement-
ed in 2006 in a way that addresses
the concerns of the entire market
system.
The National Farm Animal
Identification and Records Act
requires the secretary of agricul-
ture to establish an electronic
nationwide livestock identifica-
tion system to enhance the speed
and accuracy of the USDA's
response to outbreaks of disease
in livestock. Because livestock dis-
eases are not constrained by state
boundaries, the livestock identifi-
cation system will apply to all live-
stock born in the United States or


imported, and cover the move-
ment of livestock in both inter-
state and intrastate commerce.
The livestock identification sys-
tem will be capable of tracing,
within 48 hours, livestock from
birth to slaughter.
Because of its location, climate
and status as a gateway for inter-
national trade, Florida is particu-
larly vulnerable to invasive pests
and diseases. Quarantine 37 is a
federal rule that prohibits the
importation of foreign plants with
soil attached into the United
States since it is in the soil where
pests and diseases often hide or
hitchhike. It is not an economic
tariff, but is a scientifically based
quarantine. USDA-APHIS must
ensure that Q-37's. biological
integrity is fiaintained, or the
United States will face the intro-
duction of new foreign pests and
diseases not only on nursery
plants but also other agricultural
commodities.
Agricultural trade is essential
to the success of U. S. agriculture
as a whole, and export markets
will continue to become more
and more important to Florida's
producers. The Florida Farm
Bureau Federation supports free
and fair trade, in which import-
sensitive crops are given due con-
sideration.
Florida also needs a depend-
able labor supply in order to
maintain agriculture in the state.


A pretty Lily for Florida yards


Florida Farm Bureau Federation
supports immigration reform that
would allow workers to find jobs
and employers to find workers,
quickly and simply. The program
should provide a more secure
homeland and allow for efficient
management of all people who
cross our borders. And it should
be a more compassionate system
to protect all workers in America
with labor laws, the right to
change jobs, fair wages and a
healthy work environment.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with more than 150,000 member-
families statewide. There are
Farm Bureaus representing 64
counties in Florida, where agricul-
ture comprises a stable, vital leg
of Florida's economy, rivaling the
tourism industry in economic
importance. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, non-profit agricul-
tural organization and is not asso-
ciated with any arm of the govern-
ment. More information about
Florida Farm Bureau is available
on the organization's Web site,
http://FloridaFarmBureau.org.

Love bugs are back
Once again it's love bug season in South Florida. The
insects, which mate in flight and seem to be attracted to
area highways, are a nuisance to motorists. The bugs are
native to Central American and slowly migrated to Flori-
da over the past 50 years. They have a six-month lifecy-
cle and are often seen in May and September. An adult
love bug only lives about 72 hours.

Last week' I was brought a
plant to identify by an Okee-
chobee resident. To me, it's an
old time friend. Over the years I
enjoyed watching it grow up
fences and trellises in South
Florida. Then I found out that it
was poisonous, so I backed off
my enthusiastic'greer thumb.
Our local visitor renewed my
interest in the Gloriosa Lily. I've
also discovered there are a
small, but growing number of
enthusiastic plant lovers who are
looking for this unusual tropical
lily, and limited number of nurs-
eries that are making it available
for gardeners and commercial
florists. This week's column will
highlight what we know about
growing and using this exotic
climbing beauty.
Gloriosa Lilies may have sev-
eral different common names in
the nursery trade, including
Flame Lily, Glory Lily or Climb-
ing Lily. Those found in the land-
scape are usually a cultivated
variety of Gloriosa superba. The
named species and varieties of
this plant differ in the plant size,
waviness of the petals, and the
different amounts of red and yel-
low flower colors. For example,
there is a variety called Lutea,
which has pure yellow flowers
with slender petals.
Gloriosa Lilies grow from a
fleshy underground tuber. As the
plant grows through warm sea-
son, this storage structure pro-
duces two forks that are shaped
like miniature sweet, potatoes.
This shape may account for
some of the cases of poisoning.
In some area of its native
range of Africa and Asia, this
plant has been over-collected.
The wide spread use of its tubers
for medicinal purposes has led
to its disappearance from some
areas. The Gloriosa Lily has been
named the National Flower of
Zimbabwe. This flower, know as
"Karthigaipoo" to the Tamil
Tiger rebels of Sri Lanka, is also
their "national" symbol because
of its dangerous qualities and
brilliant coloring.

heights of success and
happiness. We're behind

All parts of the plant contain a
chemical called colchicine. Plant
scientists may recognize this
chemical as the one, which will
double up the chromosomes in
a plant's DNA, and it is used in
hybridizing plants. This poison is
a problem if any part of the plant
is. swallowed, especially the
tubers. Initial poisoning symp-
toms of colchicine develop in 2-6
hours. Contact our office or our
Web page if you need to know
more about symptoms or first
aid for poisoning.
The plants are well adapted
to growing on trellises, and can
be placed in containers indoors
as houseplants. They do well in
most of Florida in the landscape.
Their thin stems are covered
with pairs of 3-4 inch long glossy
leaves, tipped at the ends with
curly tendrils that help them
climb fences or walls. Glory lily
plants can stretch up to heights
from three to eight feet tall.
As with many knock-your-
socks-off tropical plants, brilliant
flower colors are the reason for
adding this plant to your Florida
Yard. Flower buds appear
between the leaf and the stem,
and when the greenish capsules
open, a 4- to 5-inch lily explodes
way back on itself with six wavy-
edged yellow, range or red
petals.
. Choose sunny locations for
the Gloriosa Lily for good
growth, although partially shady
spots may. be enough. Well-
drained rich soils will support
better growth, but avoid planting
this flowering tropical perennial
in areas with high salts.
If you find nursery grown
plants, they can be planted in
your Florida yard like any other
container plant. Often this plant
is only available as a tuber. If this
is yuqr source of planting stock,
place the L- or V-shaped "root"
in a two-inch deep hole. Better
results have been seen when this
tuber is laid flat in the planting
hole.
Once growing, provide suffi-
cient water to prevent wilting,


and add fertilizers as needed to
promote maximum plant height,
ensuring a maximum number of
blooms. Because they have
weak stems, carefully tying up
the stems on supporting fences
or trellises may help extend the
blooming period.
Blooms from this plant can
be used as cut flowers. Flowers
cut just before the petals bend
back may last up to eight days in
an arrangement splitting the
stem end before placing it in the
vase will improve water uptake.
Some florists are growing the
Gloriosa as a floral crop to make
bloom available for floral bou-
quets.
Unless the seed are desired to
grow more plants, remove the
capsules to promote continued
growth of this plant. On the
other hand, manually self polli-
nating the plant will increase the
number of seed produced. The
pods will contain round reddish
seeds, which can be replanted
into containers to produce new
plants.
Seeds sprout slowly and
make take at much as four
months to get started. Seedlings
will form tubers within a year,
but should be given three grow-
ing seasons before placing them
in the landscape.
There are few pests that both-
er this plant. Aphids may be con-
trolled with soap sprays if need-
ed, and large chewing insects
can be picked off by hand. Other
insect pests should be identified
before an insecticide is applied.
After blooming, gradually
reduce watering and protect the
ground from cool, damp condi-
tions. Gloriosa should survive
our Florida winter temperatures
in the ground. If desired, the
tubers can be carefully dug and
divided in two after the vine dies
back. Be sure to include a grow-
ing point on each division. In
colder areas, dormant tubers
can be carefully dug, placed in
moist peat moss and brought
inside to protect them from tem-
peratures below 20 degrees.

'Thursday, May 26, 2005 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


History:

By MaiyAnn Morris
Editor's note: Daniel M.
McCarthy, son of Okeechobee pio-
neer, Daniel B. McCarthy, passed
away Feb. 24, 2005 at the age of
82.
In recognition of his contribu-
tions to the Lake Okeechobee
area, we will feature some of the
family's history and stories for our
readers. Some information for this
Article was previously published in
the Okeechobee News in 1986 in
the history series by Twila Valen-
tine. Mr. McCarthy's daughter,
Monica McCarthy Clark shared
family photos and some of her
memories with us. We begin with
the coming of the first McCarthy,
DanielB. McCarthy to Florida.
"My great-grandfather, Daniel
McCarthy (no middle initial) lived
in Nebraska. In 1905 he bought
26,000 acres in Florida sight
i unseen," said Mrs. Clark. "Six years
later, in 1911, he asked my grandfa-
I their, Daniel B. McCarthy, the oldest
of his 15 living children and a recent
engineering school graduate, to go
to Okeechobee, then called Tantie,
and survey the land he had pur-
chased." He must have liked what
he saw, because he decided to stay
and worked on dredge boats oper-
ating on Lake Okeechobee.
"He borrowed $1,000 from my
great-grandfather and built a build-
ing on the northwest corner of Park
Street and Fifth Avenue, where he
'.opened the D. B. McCarthy General
Store in 1915, the year the name of
the town Tantie changed to Okee-
chobee. His store had three stores
in one: A grocery store, a clothing
store and a combination hardware
and feed store," she continued,
"The building where Lawn Tamer
is nowwas part of his store.
: "When World War I broke out
in 1917, he enlisted, leaving the
store in the hands of his older
brother, J. David McCarthy and his
wife Celia, who had.come from
Omaha to work the store while he
was at war. Dave was connected to
the store until his retirement and
death.
"After the war, Dave and Celia
had decided to stay in Okee-
chobee. Dan divided the store with
Dave, keeping the hardware por-
\ tion for himself. He had fallen in
6 love with Marie Futrell, a local
schoolteacher before the war, so
when he came back to Okee-
'i chobee, he married her in 1919. His
engineering background led him
into the plumbing and building
business.
" "The brothers built their houses
v in 1921 from lumber cut from their
grandfather's original land pur-
chase: Dave and Celia at the corner
1, of N.W Second Street and Fourth
^ Avenue, across the street from
where the Okeechobee County
Courthouse would later be. The
house still stands, painted blue
with white trim, and now houses
the law office of John Cassels. My
grandfather and grandmother built
their house at 111 N.W 2nd Street,
where Inkwell Printing is now,"
said Mrs. Clark.
Twila Valentine of the Okee-
chobee News interviewed Mr.
Daniel M. McCarthy March 11,
1986. He shared these colorful
memories of his pioneer father,
Dan McCarthy, Sr.
There was no paved road
between Okeechobee and the trip
to Fort Pierce took several days for
more than a decade. Everything
was ordered and came by rail. Even
with the train, there was nothing
until you got to St. Augustine.
The fishing industry was going
full blast on Lake Okeechobee and
there was a tremendous amount of
trot fishing. So, feeling he would
have no trouble selling them, his
father ordered an entire boxcar
load of fishhooks. The company
From which he purchased the fish-
hooks sent a salesman to find out
why anyone would want an entire
carload of hooks. He told the sales-
man, 'I'm going to sell them, but if
they (the company) are concerned,
I'll pay for them now.'
His credit had been well estab-
Slished, so the salesman was flab-
bergasted when he next discov-
ered that Daniel B. wanted to pay
him in cash. His son recalled that
his father always sent cash in the
Smail to pay for the inventory he
purchased for the store.
Daniel B. was a very large man
and it was quite difficult to find
clothes to fit him. Mr. Anthony had
a department store that would
measure and fit the man who wore
Sa size 54 jacket, had a 19-inch neck
S and 37-inch long arms. His hands
were so large, his son said, he
could hide a baseball in this hand.


So, once a year he would make
the journey to West Palm Beach to
get his clothing, and to go to con-
fession, since there was no Catholic
priest coming to Okeechobee at
that time. The trip would start with
a boat trip part way down the east
side of the lake. From there, he
would walk the rest of the way.
Daniel M. said the trip took three
days eachway.
Daniel B. would love to tell the
story that one time when he went
to confession at a church in West
Palm Beach the priest began to
chastise him because it had been a
year since he had last went to con-
6 session. He laughed as he related
L the story, but never told the priest

The two Irish brothers and
Daniel M. related a story to illustrate
the sense of humor that existed
between them. "Dave was five
years older than Daddy," he said.
"People would ask if Daddy was
any kin to Uncle Dave. Daddy
would say, 'I understand we are dis-
tant relatives. He is the oldest and I
am the youngest of 17 children.' It
wasn't true of course, but it made a
story because they were teasing all
the time. Dave was red-headed and
almost baldheaded. Daddy has a
mass of coal black hair. If you saw
them together, the facial features
were alike, but if you saw them
apart, you would wonder if they
were related or just both had the

same last name.
"My grandparents had three
children," continued Mrs. Clark,
"my dad, Daniel Marion McCarthy,
and his sisters, Kathleen and Lee."
So, Daniel B. grew up in Okee-
chobee. "He wasn't known as
"Dan" growing up," Mrs. Clark
explained. "Everyone in town
knew him as Marion to avoid the
confusion of having 'two Dan
McCarthys in town.
"In 1929, when my father was 7
-years -old, my grandfather started
a side business. This was at the


height of the Depression. No one
had money for new building, so my
grandfather arranged to bring
propane gas to Okeechobee by rail
from Tampa, offering refrigeration
to Okeechobee residents for the
first time. At that time there were
gas refrigerators and not everyone
around had electricity."
"My father went to school here
and played football on the high
school team, the Okeechobee Cat-
fish. After school he worked in the
store for my grandfather, learning
the business from him," she said.

Tigers wallop Lake Wor th aughn, PA.31-0
Tigers wallop Lake WVorth, 31-0 L OffiEErtSL3VaghnP.A


Local fans got a sneak preview
at Cane Field on Thursday night of
what will be in store for the upcom-
ing football season as they watched
the Clewiston Tigers manhandle
the Class 6A Lake Worth Trojans,
31-0.
Clewiston scored early and
often, racking up a 21-0 first quarter
lead and adding 10 more points to
close out the half. Sophomore
Quarterback Jared Combass and
an impressive stable of running
backs, featuring speed from the tail-
back spot and hard running from
the fullback position, led the Tigers
offensively.
Combass completed five of
seven passes for 81 yards, kicked
four extra points and added a 25-
yard field goal.
After the intermission, Coach
Tommy Morrell used extensive sub-
stitution, as his staff evaluated the
depth of the Tiger squad in prepara-
tion for the coming year, which will
be his third as Tiger head coach.
Clewiston kicked off to begin
the game and the Combass kick
went through the end zone. From
their 20, the Trojans marched back-
wards as a swarming Tiger defense
pinned them for three straight loss-
es. A short Trojan punt put the Tiger
offense in business at the Lake
Worth 42 and it wasn't long before
the Tigers were in scoring position.
Tailbacks Jamal Hubert and
Richard Pope moved the ball on the
ground and Combass hit Fullback
Carl Whitehead in the flats and he
turned it up field for a 12-yard gain
setting up the Tigers' first score.
Richard Pope got the final three
yards off tackle and Combass con-
verted the extra point. Late in the
quarter, Combass threw a pass
downfield that slipped through the
up stretched hands of the intended
receiver only to find Lamarcus
McGriff waiting in the end zone for
a 15-yard touchdown reception.
Combass again converted the
extra point.
The score came with 57 sec-
onds left in the quarter. The Tigers
quickly took the ball back from the
Trojans and Jamal Hubert broke
free and trotted untouched for a 21-
yard score, as the quarter came to a
close.
In the second period, Tailback
Randi Scott found pay-dirt on ayard
dive. Combass completed his per-
fect night of extra points and then


The varsity Tiger cheerleaders kept the fans alive with flawless technique and dazzling execution.

he later added a 25-yard field goal
with 3:10 left in the half.
The Trojans, who barely made it
to the game on time due to a trans-
portation mix-up, might have
wished they hadn't made it at all.
They were clearly outmatched by
the Tigers on both sides of the ball.
Their only bright spot on the
evening was the running of Tail-
back Winston Thompson who did
get outside for long runs of 39 and
20 yards.
However, there was no sus-
tained offense and the Trojans bare-
ly penetrated Tiger territory during
the entire game.
The Tiger defense was led by
solid line play by Jamal Hubert,
Pedro Diaz and William Bigham,
backed up by Linebacker Carl
Whitehead. The Tiger running
offense was impressive with both
its speed and depth. Hubert, White-
head, Richard Pope, and White
were joined by D.J. Bartlett and
Collin Ricketts in piling up 155 yards
rushing in the first half on 23

Brinkley also had a nice catch on a
25-yard play.
Coach Tommy Morrell is cau-
tiously optimistic about the 2006
squad. He said, "We've got a lot of


work to do on our offensive line, as
they are unseasoned and we lack
depth at those positions. But, our
starters do have good size and have
been rriaking progress in practice.
One of our keys to success will be
continuing to progress and avoid-
ing injuries."

The Brighton Seminole Reservation Education Program
Open House began with the Seminole pledge. Representa-
tives from each class helped lead the pledge called "Es-te
Se-mv-nol-vl-ke Em-mvn-te-lv" in the Creek language. Trans-
lated, the pledge means: "I pledge allegiance to the flag of
the Seminole Tribe of Florida. And to the sovereign nation for
heritage it stands. With the help of the Great Spirit, I prom-
ise to walk tall, strong and straight, and honest under the
banner. May I always defend her honor with courage and dis-
play her colors with great pride." The Seminole Tribe is a
sovereign nation with its own government. Tribal members
.have "dual citizenship" as members of the tribe as well as
citizens of the United States of America.

However, no decision by the board
was ever made to have the deed
restriction lifted. Lykes Brothers,
who continue to uphold the origi-
nal restriction, are steadfast against
eliminating the restriction, which
prevents the full utilization of the
airspace that would be provided by
such an agreement. The company
maintains the position that lifting
the restriction'is not in their best
interest, and they must not "relin-

ing the board every month, Mon-
day's meeting agenda included dis-
cussion of the deed restriction,
which followed extended discus-
sion of the county's potential adop-
tion of a Municipal Services Taxing
Unit.
The discussion was prefaced by
Commissioner Butch Davis's great
emphasis of the county's current
fiscal matters and the need for
added revenue.
"In the 13 years I've served this.

millage rates will ultimately be
determined by a complete budget
picture, and will provide compre-
hensive tax assessment ability for
the county," he said.
Commissioner Butch Davis,
concerned about the county's lia-
bility, asked Mr. McDonald whether
the taxing unit has been challenged
before. Mr. McDonald gave a gener-
al assurance that the taxing unit
would escape crippling litigation if
implemented.


the President he's the real
Jimmy Carter." And the words
came tumbling out in a happy
stream like a marching band.
.David stopped, catching his
breath. After all, not many his age
("I'll be 11 come September")
have had such an experience. Aug.
5 was a big day in the young life of
blue-eyed David. Truth is, it was an
extraordinarily big day, the one that
did indeed, bring a personal letter
from former President Jimmy
Carter and a BIG autographed pho-
tograph- in color.
David and I didn't talk about the
brown egg business that day, or
summer camp, or his horse or any-
thing except the letter with the gold
United States seal, "Like I mean
REAL GOLD!"
And the quick, wide grin lit up
the summer-brown face and more
pictures were taken. It was not only


Glades County continues to die
internally due to lack of funds,"
Commissioner Davis said. "Our
budget hearings last year were
faced with a $980,000 deficit, and
this year is only going to be worse,"
he said.
With a general board consen-
sus that the deed restriction
amendment must be pursued, a
-motion to initiate legal action to do
so was offered by Commissioner
Russell Echols, and seconded by
Commissioner Alvin Ward. Speak-
ing on behalf of the public, former
commissioner Donna Storter asked
if the board will borrow the funds
to be used for legal fees incurred by
pursuing the deed restriction, to


The possibilities of which
departments to fund via MSTU
were varied, including a proposal
to have EMS covered by MSTU and
fire services under MSBU. Howev-
er, the final resolution to imple-
ment MSTU was to cover both EMS
and fire services under one MSTU.
Commissioner Alvin Ward char-
acterized the consequences of
such a motion. "I believe a home-
owner must pay. Just because a
homeowner does not pay, does not

the sometimes difficult business of
growing up.
David walked with me to rhy
truck saying, "I sure would like to
show my teacher this letter and
Jimmy Carter's 'pitcher'. I b'lieve-
he might like it. I believe he might..."
Yes, David, I'm sure your
teacher will like your special letter
from President Jimmy Carter.
And I'm sure, too, that Aug. 5,
1982, if it had been graded, would
have earned an A-plus.

mankind in the universe is more
than a little unusual. He doesn't just
see needs, at home or abroad, he
feels these needs and they hurt
him. So he tirelessly uses his
uncommon energies working to
alleviate at least some of the needs
wherever he finds them.
And the world is a better place,,
for the likes of Jimmy Carter, who
could and would take time to

brown eggs on the side of Bucking-

Time following storm is the


More hurricanes predicted


most erit
With the approach of hurri-
cane season on June 1, the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute (EPEI) has found
that a majority of citizens living
in the affected areas, not only
lack a plan to prepare for a hurri-
cane, but also lack a plan to deal
with the aftermath of the storms.
EPEI found that only 11 per-
cent of residents and businesses
have even the most basic plans
to deal with the aftermath of a
storm. Based upon research
conducted following Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Jeanne, and
Ivan, the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute found
that for a majority of individuals
it was the lack of preparation for
the aftermath of the hurricane
that was the most devastating.
Based upon its findings and
weather predictions of another
heavy hurricane season, EPEI is
strongly urging individuals and
businesses to put into effect a
plan to be prepared following
hurricanes hitting the shore.
"We have found that only 25
percent of individuals and busi-
nesses have, begun the most
basic plans to be prepared for a
hurricane hitting their area," said
Norris L. Beren, executive direc-
tor of the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute and
author of When Disaster Strikes
Home! "While that number is
woefully inadequate, the num-
ber falls even lower when you
ask if they have a basic plan to
put into action following a
storm.
"Based upon our research
findings last year, we found that
it is after the hurricane hits rather
then before the storm that peo-
ple must be most prepared to


ical, says
cope with," continued Beren.
"Many things that would appear
common sense are overlooked
in the aftermath of these storms.
This lack. of planning can be
fatal."
Among the most important
things that EPEI recommends for
both businesses and individuals
is the need to have an effective
communications plan in place.
Among the steps that EPEI found
were overlooked and is urging
that citizens be prepared for are:
Bring a three-day supply of
clothes, supplies, and food and
water, batteries, cleaning sup-
plies, medicine, cash, portable
radio.
Make sure your gasoline
tank is as full as possible when
you return.
Have alternate shelter plans
if you cannot remain home
because of flooding, damage,
etc.
Plan ahead what type of
meals you can serve if you have
no power and purchase food
supplies appropriately.
Buy an inexpensive power
Inverter that you can plug into
your car cigarette lighter to cre-
ate enough house electricity to
power, light duty appliances such
as a fan or battery charger.
Make sure you have a cur-
rent picture I.D. to gain access to
your home or business loca-
tions.
Notify family members out-
side of area when you have
arrived.
Check outside of home,
roof, walls, chimney etc. and see
if it all appears safe before enter-
ing.
Open closets and cup-
boards carefully and watch for


EPEI
falling objects.
Check operation of septic
system if you have one.
When resetting circuit
breakers, wear dry, rubber-soled
shoes and stand on something
dry such as a wood board.
Use 'only one hand when
touching circuit breaker.
After the storm be careful of
poisonous snakes, insects, and
other wildlife that may be dislo-
cated by the storm.
Assume all stairs, floors,
and roofs are unsafe until
inspected.
e Avoid turning on power if
there is floodwater present.
Always ask for identifica-
tion before allowing anyone to
enter your residence.
Prevent mold by sanitizing
personal property, clothes, furni-
ture, shelves that hold food and
clothes, including areas where
children play.
e Steam clean carpeting and
upholstered furniture.
Use bleach with water (one
cup of bleach to five gallons of
water) and other disinfectants to
neutralize bacteria.
"Last year following the dev-
astating hurricane season over
63 percent of those affected did
not have a plan in place that cov-
ered these items resulting in a
delay in recovery efforts," said
Beren. "It cannot be emphasized
enough that preparation for after
one of these deadly storms is just
as critical as preparing for the
storm."
Additional information on the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute and preparation
steps may be obtained at
www.getprepared.org.


The 2004 hurricane season
was a learning experience for
n iany Floridians.
According to the Florida
Department of Financial Services'
study publication, "The Differ-
ence a Decade Makes". In 1992
Hurricane Andrew caused $20.5
billion in today's dollars in a small
area of the state. In 2004, four
hurricanes caused about the
same dollar amount of damage,
but across the entire state.
From 1970 to. 2000 Florida's
population increased 150 per-
cent, according to the Office of


Economic and Demographic
Research of the Florida Legisla-
ture. It is estimated to increase
another 46 percent in the next 25
years. The majority of Florida's
population arrived during years
when there was relatively little
hurricane activity. Today, most of
the scientific analysis of tropical
storm patterns suggests long-.
term there will be a much higher
incidence of hurricane activity.
"We foresee an above-aver-
age hurricane season for the
Atlantic basin in 2005," said the


Fort Pierce
464-6464
1801 South 23rd St., #5


April 1, 2005 report by William M.
Gray and Paul J. Klotzbach,
researchers with the University of
Colorado. "We have adjusted our
forecast upward from our early
December forecast and may fur-
ther raise our prediction in our
later updates if we can be sure El
Ni-o conditions will not develop.
The probability of one major (cat-
egory 3-4-5) hurricane landfall for
the east coast including the Flori-
da peninsula is 53 percent as
compared to 31 percent average
for the last century.'.'

[Disaster
The American Red Cross advis-
es hurricane disaster kits should
include the following items:
First aid kit and essential med-
ications.
Canned food and can opener.
At least three gallons of water
per person (that is just minimal
drinking water for drinking for
three days you will need more
water (cooking or washing).
Protective clothing, rainwear.
Bedding or sleeping bags.
Battery-powered radio, flash-
light, and extra batteries.
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members.

`Be prepare
It's crucial and possibly life sav-
ing to follow some basic guidelines
when preparing for hurricane sea-
son.
Keep your car's gas tank full.
Don't let it get below half a tank
without refilling. When a hurricane
watch is declared, there may be a
gas shortage. If you plan to evacu-
ate, you will need enough gasoline
to get you out of the hurricane area.
elf you live in a low-lying area or
a home that was damaged by the
2004 storms' and has not been'
repaired, you should make plans to
stay elsewhere during a storm.
i Depending on the severity of the
storm, mobile home dwellers may
be asked to evacuate. Make plans
now to stay with friends, relatives
or a hotel. Use the county's hurri-
cane shelters as a last resort. Shel-

DCF says m
TALLAHASSEE As. May
marks both Mental Health Aware-
ness Month and the eve of the 2005
t hurricane season, the Department
of Children & Families is urging
Floridians to mentally prepare
themselves for what is expected to
be a stressful period.
"The psychological effects of
? last year's storms are still being felt
by many Florida residents," DCF
Secretary Lucy D. Hadi said. "Once
I again, DCF is prepared to offer dis-
| aster mental health services if the
i need arises again this hurricane
| season. We advise Floridians to do
all they can this year to reduce
stress both before and after storms
f hit our state this year."
The Department's Mental
S Health Program Office has the fol-
r lowing self-help tips for residents to


kits advised by Red Cross


Written instructions on how
to turn off electricity, gas and water
if authorities advise you to do so.
(Remember, you'll need a profes-
sional to turn them back on.)
Change of clothes for all fami-
ly members.
Other helpful items to have on
hand during hurricane season:
Cash (ATMs may run out of
money or be inoperable)
Coolers and ice
Paper plates, paper cups,
paper napkins (you may not have
running water to wash dishes).
Chainsaw (to cut up fallen
tree limbs to make them easier to


move).
Battery operated camp fan.
Gas grill with extra supply of
propane gas (to cook food from
the freezer before it spoils).
Extra cans of gasoline for your
vehicle (if electricity is out, gas
pumps will not work).
Plastic garbage bags (these
can be used to protect books,
photo albums and other items
from water damage).
Rubber storage bins (these
can be used to protect items from
water damage).
Duct tape (Can be used to
securely close storage bins, secure


plastic on top of furniture to protect
it from leaks, tape up broken win-
dows after a storm, etc. In the sum-
mer of 2004, some homeowners
used Duct tape as a temporary fix
to repair a roof, and keep the rain
out until roofers could be found.)
Insect repellent standing
water after a hurricane breeds
mosquitoes.
Camera, film (if not digital)
and batteries you will want to
take pictures of damages to docu-
ment it for insurance claims before
making emergency repairs.

ed throughout hurricane season


. ters provide protection to save your
life, but are usually crowded and
uncomfortable. If you do go to a
shelter, you will need to take your
own bedding, as you will have to
sleep on the floor.
*Keep cash on hand. If you
have to evacuate, you will need
cash. If the power is out, the ATM
machines will not work and banks
will be closed. Don't wait until the
last minute to get cash, as the ATM
machines may run out.
*Buy extra batteries for all bat-
tery operated items you will want
to use if power is out. This includes
flashlights, radios, televisions and
battery-operated toys. Make sure
you have the right size batteries for
each item. If you haven't put batter-
ies in the radio in more than a year,
you may forget if it takes "C" or "D"


cell batteries. Make a list before you
shop.
*Put all important documents
(insurance documents, birth certifi-
cates, marriage license, auto titles,
etc.) in a waterproof bag or box
and place it where you can easily
find it so you can take it with you if
you have to evacuate.
*Document your possessions,
with a list and with photos or video-
tape. Take photos of home -
inside and out and any other
buildings on your property. Should
your home be destroyed, you will
need proof of what was lost to
show to the insurance company.
Put the list and photos with your
other important documents.
\ *Decide in advance what you
will do with animals if a hurricane
is headed your way. If you plan to


evacuate and take pets with you,
make sure you have a place for
them. Pets are not allowed at hurri-
cane shelters, but some hotels do
allow guests to bring pets. Live-
stock (horses and cattle) are gener-
ally safer out in an open field than
in a barn. If animals are in a barn
and the barn collapses, they can be
trapped or crushed. Left in an open
field, horses and cattle will use their
own instincts to survive most
just put their backs to the wind and
keep eating. If possible, mark live-
stock (for example, with a water-
proof tag attached to a halter) and
photograph animals to help identi-
fy lost animals should fences be
destroyed by falling trees.


ental preparation is most important


alleviate hurricane-related stress:
Have a hurricane prepared-
ness plan foryou and your family.
Be aware of public emer-
gency resources available in your
community.
Draw on the support of ybur
family, friends, neighbors and cler-
gy.
For parents, know that chil-
dren are affected more by your
reactions, and that of other adults,
to an emergency than the emer-
gency itself. Be mindful of your
behavior during that time.
Optimal physical and psycho-
logical health before and during
hurricane season are important.
Rest, exercise and maintain a
.healthy diet. Strive to find a balance
between quiet time and activity.
Try to maintain personal and


family routines as much as possi-
ble.
Some residents of hurricane-
impacted areas will require help in
coping with storm-related stress.
Ready to follow up on its work last
year, department staff is prepared
to provide them crisis counseling.
Disaster mental health services
last year were funded upon DCF's
request by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. Services this
year would again be contingent on
FEMA funding that DCF would
seek in the event of a major storm
causing widespread damage.
Last year, department crisis
counselors quickly moved out to
areas impacted by hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.
Crisis counseling is short-term help
for individuals trying to recover


from traumatic events. The depart-
ment last year provided crisis coun-
seling to an estimated 153,000
stormvictims.
While working in storm-dam-
aged areas last year, counselors
found many hurricane victims suf-
fering from increased stress levels,
anxiety, depression and other con-
ditions requiring more in-depth
help. DCF responded with Project
Recovery, a program to prevent or
treat situational stress, and mal-
adaptive and addictive behaviors.
Funded by an $11 million federal
grant, 14 multi-disciplinary teams
currently are serving 27 hurricane-
damaged counties. The teams pro-
vide assessments, referrals, service
planning and direct services.

Carbon Dioxide mosquito traps are no magic bullet, say UF experts


VERO BEACH With spring
rains promising a bumper crop of
mosquitoes, some Floridians may
consider buying expensive high-
tech traps that use carbon dioxide
to lure the bloodsuckers. But Uni-
versity of Florida experts warn that
buyers who don't do their home-
work could still get bitten in the
pocketbook.
Priced from $300 to $1,500, the
traps do capture mosquitoes and
other biting insects, said Jonathan
Day, an entomologist with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The real question is
whether they will protect a yard
from the pests, he said. .
The state is home to 74 species
of mosquitoes, of which about half
prey on people, he said. Only a few
species are likely to be controlled
with a C02 trap because variables
such as flight range, habitat prefer-
Sence and feeding behavior deter-
r mine whether the trap will capture
mosquitoes in large enoughraum-
b1ers to reduce biting around the
home.
"Before you buy a trap, it's cru-


cial that you know what mosquito
species is causing your problem,"
Day said. "The traps can be very
effective if the target insect is one
that doesn't fly very far or has its
breeding site near your home. But
most of the mosquitoes people
complain about in Florida have
flown -a considerable distance
before they end up in someone's
back yard and using a trap to con-
trol them is like trying to capture all
the grains of sand on the beach."
Consumers can get help identi-
fying mosquitoes by contacting
UF/IFAS county extension agents,
he said. To assess whether a C02
trap could help, an agent will need
to know about vegetation and sur-
face water in and around the prop-
erty.
The traps lure mosquitoes by
emitting carbon dioxide, a gas peo-
ple and animals produce when
they breathe, Day said. Some traps
use additional chemicals to mimic
other scents. When mosquitoes
reach the trap they are captured by
vacuum or adhesive.
Day, who has used C02 traps as


a research tool for 10 years at the
Florida Medical Entomology Labo-
ratory in Vero Beach, said despite
the traps' efforts to fool mosquitoes
with C02 and other attractants, the
insects prefer people and animals.
He is concluding a study that
showed CO02 traps were signifi-
cantly outperformed by traps that
used live hosts as bait.
Because C02 traps have only
been available to consumers since
the late 1990s, manufacturers are
still refining the technology, said
Joe Conlon, a staff entomologist
and spokesman with the American
Mosquito Control Association, a
nonprofit organization in New Jer-
sey.
"The attractants don't seem to
be working as well as theoretically
possible, and we need a whole lot
more research into the physiology
of attractiveness of humans to
mosquitoes," Conlon said.
Species-specific attractants
could help consumers solve pest
problems more reliably, said Ray-
mond lannetta, chairman and
chief executive officer of American


Biophysics Corporation, the first
company to produce a C02 mos-
quito trap for the consumer mar-
ket, the Mosquito Magnet trap. The
Rhode Island company is also the
first to develop attractants based on
human skin scents, and recently
introduced an attractant designed
for the Asian tiger mosquito, he
said.
lannetta said consumers and
scientists may view C02 traps with
skepticism because other mosqui-
to control devices such as electric
"bug zappers" are not based on
valid science. He asserts that his
company's products are effective,
and are based on 14 years of rigor-
ous scientific research and testing.
.'"A significant hurdle was getting
over the industry's gadget or gim-
mick syndrome," he said. "We're
constantly working with the scien-
tific community and the public to
change that perception."
The company maintains an
extensive Web site to educate con-
sumers about the traps, how they
work and how consumers can best
use them, lannetta said.


Experts agree that operator
error can impair a C02 trap's per-
formance, said Dan Kline, a
research entomologist with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Center for Medical, Agricultural
and Veterinary Entomology in
Gainesville.
"It's important that people read
and follow the owner's manual,"
said Kline, who regularly tests C02
traps for manufacturers and is con-
ducting a study to determine if mul-
tiple C02 traps can protect a neigh-
borhood. "Placement is a big issue
-you need to keep the trap out of
the immediate area where people
gather, and try to put it between the
people and the source of the mos-
quitoes."
Another common problem is
that consumers sometimes use the
traps only during outdoor activities,
rather than running them continu-
ously during warm weather, as
manufacturers recommend, he
said. Round the clock operation of
one trap can cost $20 to $25 per
month.
No one should rely exclusively


on a C02 trap for mosquito con-
trol, said Roxanne Rutledge, an
entomologist at the UF laboratory
in Vero Beach. Consumers should
also follow traditional precautions
such as using repellent, eliminating
sources of standing water and
patching holes in screens.
"Try to keep a balance," she
said. "Do things around your home
to reduce the number of mosqui-
toes that breed or get inside, but
understand there are factors
beyond your control."
Ultimately, a consumer's toler-
ance for mosquito bites may be the
only way to measure success with
a C02 trap, Rutledge said.
"It comes down to a matter of
perception," she said. "You can
have one of these in your yard, and
if you feel like you're not being bit-
ten by mosquitoes anymore and
you're happy with it, then for you it
works."
