I.C.E. facility gets official launching


By Mark Young
MOORE HAVEN It began as
a simple statement, blossomed
into a dream, and became a reality
on Jan. 23 when Glades County
Commissioner Alvin Ward official-
ly signed the construction contract
to launch the beginning of what
has been termed the new I.C.E.
correctional facility.
The late Jim Ryder, former
Glades County Sheriff, first con-
cei' ed tihe possibility, ofa multi-use
cor,rec'tional lacilir' some fie e ears
agoi and some of those in' ol\ ed


with the project would eventually
say, "'I hope he's up there smiling."
The $33 million project was
taken up by two current county
commissioners and one previous
county commissioner as a private
venture, alleviating the burden
from the county itself and the once
long ago discussion became a'
stark reality when Mr. Ward inked
his signature on the construction
contract that will set into motion a
detailed construction plan of the
new 'state-of-tie-arit" facility,
which is expected to have a long-
term positive financiall impact to:


the county.
"There are a lot of people to
thank today," said Commissioner.
Ward. "This project has died in
every way you can think of killing
it, but today it has come to life."
The project was expected to
begin this-past summer, but a rie't
round of hurricanes and the usual
government bureaucracy associat-
ed with developing land in Florida
slowed the progress down. The
Jan. 23 signing marks the first step
in what will be a ielati\ el\ short

Memories of Moore Haven, 1918


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers of
Florida was privileged to have on
staff a superb writer and historian,
Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valentine
wrote much about the history of the
people and places around Lake
Okeechobee and about the lake
itself. Together with Okeechobee's
Betty Williamson, president of the
Okeechobee Historical Society, she
co-authored a book, now in its sec-
ond printing, "Strolling down Coun-
try Roads in Okeechobee.",
Mrs. Valentine interviewed with
Mrs. Mertie Van De Velde dated
November 1988 when Mrs. Van De


Veldet was 84 years old. Excerpts
from that interview follow:
"My maiden name was Cochran.
I came with my four brothers and
sisters and my mom and dad. My
dad was a farmer. We left Arcadia
about March 7, 1918 and it took us
about five days to come to Moore
Haven. There wasn't roads of any
kind coming into here then. When
we left, we had two wagons two
horses to one and one horse to the
other. It had been a dry winter, so
we knew it was dry on the prairie so
we put a water barrel on. We head-
ed for Blue Head it was just a
cypress swamp, like, so we just cir-
cled around it. When we came to


the palmetto patches, we'd just cir-
cle around them, too. We just kept
heading southeast.
"I remember it was getting late in
the evening when we came to
Fisheating Creek. Aunt Maggie, my
Dad's sister was with us. She was a
great fisherman, so she went right
to the creek to the old muddy water
and caught quite a bit of fish. Perch,
we called them. We fried them up
brown' and we had fish for supper
that night. Then the next morning
we came on into Moore Haven.
"We had all cleaned up so nice
to come into town, but when we
drove the wagon down the street it

Lessons from the fishermen


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Named after the legendary
founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L.
Wood, FLW Outdoors administers
eight national fishing tournament
circuits. Unless you boycotted
Clewiston last weekend, you know
that the FLW was herewith 200 pro
fishing teams.
Each pro has his or her special
techniques and multiple rods for
multiple ways of fishing. Some
were more successful than others.
Mike Hawkes took the lead on day
one, but didn't make the final top
10 by day two. The pros who
caught the largest bass each day
also did not make the final top 10.
Flipping artist Tommy Biffle
jumped into the overall lead by day
two, and Mark Hardin jumped
from 102 to fourth place.
You can flip, plop, spin, or drop
to catch fish, depending on how
they are biting and what you can
entice them to take. Not all of the
fish stay caught. One of the pros
stated that you are successful if you
get 70 percent in the boat when
you are flipping the lily pads. And
then, water conditions change, as
do the areas where fish are biting.
The very first words of Jesus
when He and Peter met at the
waters were, "Follow me, and I will
make you a fisher of men." His very
last words to Peter, again down at
the waters of the Sea of Galilee, and
after His resurrection, were, "Feed
my sheep, follow me." From begin-
ning to end this is the mission of the
Church.
So, what are some of the tips we
need to remember as we fish for
disciple's arid follow Christ?
Remember five lessons from the
FLW tournament. First, you have to
go where the fish are. Be with peo-
ple on their own turf. Second, be
creative. We don't have to do things
the same old way. Be willing to try

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it.
true that burnt motor oil is a reme-
dy for mange? Joe in Canal Point.
Answer: Thanks for bringing
that up Joe! It is something I hear
every now and then, and the
answer is NO! That may have been
an old-rumored remedy, but it is
something that causes severe poi-
soning to the dog! Today, there are
wonderful and safe treatments for
all types of mange. Thank you Joe.
That was an important one to get
out there and get cleared! Take
care, Doc Savvy.
Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
What is the gestation period for a
cow? Thanks, Amanda in Clewis-
ton.
Answer. Hey Amanda! The time,
it takes for a cow's pregnancy or
gestation is about 280 days. Hope
that answers the question!


different techniques under different
conditions. Not every technique
will work every time. Third, be
patient and persistent. The overall
winner is riot necessarily the one
who is leading at the beginning or
the one who lands the biggest fish.
Fourth, enjoy the experience.
The most content are those who
believe a bad day of fishing is better
than a good day doing nothing. Cel-
ebrate with those who do well.
One day it will be your turn. Fifth,
regardless of the size of your catch,
do everything in your power to
keep them alive. Afterwards,
release them that they might con-
tinue to grow.
If you've ever seen pelicans in
action, you know they're great fish-
ermen (or fisher-birds, I suppose!) I
read about some pelicans in Cali-
fornia, which made their home
near a fleet of fishing boats. When
the boats came in, the crew would
clean their catch and throw the
heads .and scraps into the water.
The pelicans picked up on this, and
began eating the leftovers without
having to go out "fishing". For
weeks on end these pelicans
enjoyed their effortless bounty.
They just sat by the harbor and
waited for the fishing boats to
come in.
After a while, the boats found
out they could sell the fish waste, so
they stopped chucking it into the
water. The pelicans were caught
unprepared. They continued to sit
and wait for the fishing boats to
come in and throw free food in the
water, but none came. The peli-
cans grew thinner and thinner, until
worried wildlife officials came to
check out what was going on. The
officials concluded that the peli-
cans had forgotten how to fish. To
solve the problem, ffiey brought in
pelicans from another area to join
the flock and teach the starving
birds how to fish again.
Go thou and do likewise.

Historic reenactment set for Feb. 3


The Seminole Tribe of Florida
will present a reenactment of the
Second Seminole War at the
Kissimmee Slough Shootout &
Rendezvous, at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki
Museum located between Fort
Lauderdale and Naples, on the Big
Cypress Reservation just north of I-
75 (Alligator Alley) Exit 49. The
battle reenactments will honor the
Seminoles' struggle and sacrifice
to remain in their homeland and
will feature authentic weapons,
soldier and warrior attire and tac-
tics typical of the Second Seminole
War.
The three-day event will
include traditional music, South-
eastern native dancing, archery,
Seminole food and storytelling
and Seminole and pioneer artisans


"Period settlers" from around the
country will hew wood, iron and
silver and depict trading tech-
niques from the Seminole war era.
"I urge everyone who is inter-
ested in learning about Florida's
Seminole heritage to come to the
museum for the Kissimmee
Slough Shootout," said Ah-Tah-
Thi-Ki Museum Executive Director
Tina Osceola. "This event is the
ultimate opportunity to have a little
fun while gaining an education!"
The event will take place from
Friday, Feb..3 through Sunday, Feb.
5. The event is scheduled each day
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The battle
reenactments will take place at 11
a.m. on Friday and at 2 p.m. on Sat-
urday and Sunday.

Naples, on the Big Cypress Reser-
vation just north of 1-75 (Alligator
Alley) Exit 49.
In the 1830s, the United States
was attempting to enforce its poli-
cy of Indian removal. The Semi-
noles were, facing loss of their
homeland and their freedom. After
broken treaties and failed peace
parleys, the Seminoles took up
arms against removal. The U.S.
President and his generals thought
they could quickly overpower the
Seminoles. They burned settle-
ments and captured, killed and
scattered many Seminole families.
But the U.S. military could not con-
quer the Seminoles, who fought
with courage, determination and a
unique knowledge of the land. A
total of three wars were fought by
h. I I C/ Mil;1;ni nctdn-zt thU ilRih i


noles in the 1800s.
These campaigns were the
longest, costliest, and bloodiest of
all the Indian wars. Although
many Seminoles were killed or
removed to present-day Okla-
homa, they were never defeated,
and to this day, their 3,000 descen-
dants are known as "The Uncon-
quered" Seminole Tribe of Florida.
All activities are free with
admission to Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Muse-
um. Admission is free for museum
members. The price for adults is
$6, and $4 for seniors and stu-
dents. Children under six are
admitted free.

Identity theft; not a new problem and an old solution 1


The reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Recently there have been sever-
al news items about identity theft.
The crime is a sophisticated. one
and newscasters are continually
warning people about protecting
their passwords, PIN numbers, and
other numbers used for identifica-
tion.
I A while ago, his bank advised a
clergy friend that someone showed
up and attempted to open an
account in his name. One of the
bank employees happened to
know him and told the others that
the person was not that minister.
He went to the bank, the imperson-
ator left when he realized that there
was a delay in processing the
papers he falsely submitted, and
-then the problem began.
He was asked for identification,
but documents that had been read-
ily accepted in the past were now
scrutinized. The minister was left to

The class presented their work
to the city of Sanibel, had a request
from the Army Corps of Engineers
to review their presentation, and
most recently shared their facts

the Glades County Board of Com-
missioners at their regular Jan. 23

Vet Show made an impression.
y at 10:30 Commissioner Butch Jones
/vg! complimented Ms. Drake for lead-
ing her students into such an active
role on such an important issue
and said, "You are an asset to our
community and I only wish we had
more ofyou."
The students' ultimate determi-
nation is that while Lake Okee-
chobee actually plays a very minor
role in what is occurring in the
Caloosahatchee River,' it's every-
one's responsibility to step up and
papers of help find a solution and that point-
newspa- ing the finger at one another will
commu- serve no valued purpose in finding
on profit that solution. The commissioners
vested in agreed.
ideals of agreed.
leaCom- o "Agriculture is not the only prob-
lem" said Commissioner Jones.
"There are as many as seven waste-
water plants in Lee County alone
that dump pollutants into the river.
But I couldn't agree more that we
should all be working together
because we are all polluters and
we are all responsible. We are all
part of the problem and we all need
to be part of the solution."
Commissioner Paul Beck said
confirmed the students' earlier
findings that the bulk of the pollu-
tants is actually coming from mas-
sive development areas north of
the river.
"Urban runoff is creating twice
as much pollutants as the agricul-
tural areas," he said. "I have no
stats in front of me to back this up,
'"J but I believe that they have the dis-
proportionate share of the pollu-
tants and shouldn't be pointing a
finger at agriculture who has made
remarkable progress in slowing
press down the amount of phosphorous
1 that goes into the lake."


you are you?"
I was once asked to prove I was
a member of the clergy. I provided
copies of my ordination certificates,
my licensure to officiate, a list of
national church offices where I was
registered and copies of authoriza-
tions to serve on church boards,
councils and offices. Apparently it
was enough the officials who
asked never bothered me again.
The question comes up every once
and awhile when someone is
defrauded or impersonated: "How
do you prove you are you?"
The Lord faced the question
too. He began to teach and people
began to ask, "Isn't this the carpen-
ter, the son of Mary and brother of
James and Jose's and Judas and
Simon?" (Mark 6:3) He asks his dis-
ciples, '"Who do' men say w\ho the
son of man is?" I Mathew 16.13.1
and goes on to hear the affirma-
tions of Peter, "You are the Christ,
the son of the living God."
It wasn't that Jesus didn't know
who he was or that someone was
trying to steal his identity, but it was


Commissioner Russel Echols
said that the pending litigation is a
simple matter of "our money fight-
ing our money" when it comes to
government agencies suing one
another.
"South Water Florida Manage-
ment faces a large task when it
comes to the management of Lake
Okeechobee," he said. "If the lake
was just for agriculture, just used as
a water resource, or just used as a
fishery, that would be different. But
they have to manage this lake for a
multi-use purpose and try to make
everyone happy."
Commissioner Echols called for
legislative action to invest funding
into the cleanup of the lake and
Commissioner Alvin Ward echoed
that sentiment.
"There is $10.5 billion allocated
for restoration projects around
Florida, to include the Kissimmee
River Restoration Project and the
Everglades Restoration Project,"
said Commissioner Ward. "A lot of
that money is allocated for projects
all around the lake, but do you
know how much is allocated for
inside the lake boundaries? Zero.
My mission is to see that the bound-
aries inside of Lake Okeechobee
are cleaned up."
Commissioner Ward said that it
is a misconception to many people
that some $400 million has been
allocated to help clean up the lake
when in fact that funding is for proj-
ects outside of the lake boundaries
and have nothing to do with clean-
ing the lake.
"People think that money is
going for cleaning up the lake and I
say hogwash," he said. "That
money is being spent elsewhere.
We will support a millage rate
increase, but only if there is a refer-
endum passed that says it will only
be allocated to clean up inside the
lake boundaries. Why are we
cleaning up north and south of the
lake and leaving the inside of the
lake a mess?"
The commissioners all compli-
mented the students for their hard
work, professional appearance,
and for their dedication to this proj-
ect. Commissioner Ward said he
hopes that it won't end with this
senior class and that the project will
be passed onto the next class
because this problem will take a
generation to solve.
Since their first appearance in
Sanibel, the students have hosted a
Sanibel city commissioner to tour
the lake, keep detailed correspon-


important to others to recognize
him as the one sent.of God and the
one who was to fulfill the prophe-
sies. Actually, my identity isn't
important to me: I know who I am.
It is important for each of us to
kno\' that others will recognize us
for who we are and that they see us
truly and with accuracy.
There was an apocryphal tale
that I heard about someone who
spent his life trying to be someone
else and when he came to the end
of his life he was overlooked by the
Lord. When he qsked him about it,
the Lord answered, "I looked for
you, but you were nowhere to be
found. I thought you were some-
body else!"
It's important first and foremost
that we are who we are; that, after
all, is who God created. The identity
that God has gi% en us is for each of
us and nobodN can steal it from us
if we don't want to lose it.
In the final moment, that's an
identity that can't be taken and
what others will see in us in this life
and the life to come. If there are


dence with other commissioners,
and followed Sanibel's lead in writ-
ing to Governor Jeb Bush. Ms.
Drake said that the governor was
kind enough to respond to the stu-
dent letter, but would only say that
his office was, aware of the problem
and that they were "working on it."
While appears the city of Sani-
bel will continue with their litiga-
tion plans, as well as their contin-
ued efforts to recruit other cities
and counties along the west coast
to join in their litigation, Ms. Drake's
class has been able to open up dia-
logue within a situation that began
with open hostility.
Ms Drake's conclusion is that of
her students: Everyone is responsi-
ble and it doesn't matter anymore
to what degree. Everyone needs to
work together and everyone needs
to get involved and the Legislature
needs to come forward with the
funding to clean the lake.

ence, she said, "Maybe. I don't
think we, have changed anyone's
mind. (They) are still set on their
intentions. But we have opened up
some dialogue and at least people
are willing to talk about this more
than they were willing to do a few
weeks ago. I think that's a good
start."

House increased as family grew


By Harry Hulsey
Introduction by MaryAnn Morris
Thanks to Katherine Worth of
Buckhead Ridge and her cousin
Wanda Worth Hall, now living in
Sarasota, we have heard from
another "Okeechobeean" from the
past. Their cousin, Harry Hulsey,
now 82 years old, remembers
growing up in East Okeechobee in
the 1920s and 1930s.
There were four siblings in our
family during growing up years in
East Okeechobee on Hancock
Street. We lived only two blocks
from Judge H.H. Hancock and his
wife. I believe all their children
were adults in 1925 when my dad
built the first portion of our house. I
was then two years old. My brother,
Bill, was born in 1925. A sister,
Vivian, was born in 1928, and Sally,
the last child, was born in 1930.
The house grew as the family
increased in size. Usually, Daddy
found a house somewhere that
was to be moved or torn down,
purchased it and took it apart as
material for the next addition. From.
the time I was old enough to swing
a hammer, I remember pulling
nails from the boards and straight-
ening the nails on the top end of a
pine chopping block, to be reused.
Nothing was wasted. But indoor
plumbing, we had not. The toilet
was out behind the house. I
remember that once, Bill swal-.
lowed a quarter. Back then, as the
saying goes, "money didn't grow
on trees." In fact it was downright
scarce. The county hired a man
who ran a route among all the out-
door toilets and emptied all the
"catch" buckets into a tank he car-
ried on his Model T Ford truck. My
mother was not about to let that
quarter be carried to the dump
without due effort, but she was
more concerned about having pos-
itive knowledge that the coin was
not lodged somewhere in Bill's
.ge-a, tract, with possible inter-
nal damage. The search became a
family project, and indeed, the
quarter was found, readily recog-
nizable, but lacking its former shiny
surfaces.
Recently I received an Email that
I have been unable to discover an
author for. But whoever that per-
son is, he or she dated themselves
with it. No one could write with
such clarity on a subject from just
hearsay. I attach it here for your
judgment:

The House
Behind The House
One of my fondest memories
As I recall the days of yore
Was the little house, behind the
house,
With the crescent o'er the door.
'Twas a place to sil and ponder
With \oui head all bowed
down low;
Knowing that you wouldn't be
there,
If you didn't have to go.
Ours was a multi-holer, three,
With a size for every one.
You left there feeling better,
After your job was done.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history






You had to make those frequent
trips
In snow, rain, sleet, or fog.-
To that little house where you
usually
Found the Sears-Roebuck cata-
log.
Oft times in dead of winter,
The seat was spread with snow.
Twas then with much reluc-
tance,
To that little house you'd go.
With a swish you'd clear that
wooden seat,
Bend low, with dreadful fear


You'd shut your eyes and grit
your teeth
As you settled on your rear.
I recall the day ol' Granddad,
Who stayed with us one sum-
mer,
Made a trip out to that little
house
Which proved to be a bummer.

'Twas the same day that my Dad
had -
Finished painting the kitchen
green.
He'd just cleaned up the mess
he'd made
With rags and gasoline,
He tossed the rags down in the
hole
Went on his usual way
Not knowing that by doing so
He'd eventually rue the day.
Now Granddad had an urgent
call,
I never will forget!
This trip he made to the little,
house
Stays in my memory yet.


He sat down on the wooden
seat,
With both feet on the floor.
He filled his pipe and tapped it
down
And struck a match on the out-
house door.
He lit the pipe and sure enough,
it soon began to glow.
He slowly raised his rear a bit
And tossed the flaming match
below.
The blast that followed, I am
told
Was heard for miles around;
And there %\as poor ol' Grand-
dad
Sprawled out there on the
ground.
The smoldering pipe still in. his
nmouth,
His eyes were shut real light;
The celebrated triree-holer
\\Vas blown clear oul of sight
We asked him what had hap-
pened,
What he said I'll ne'er forget.
He said he Lhought it must have
been
The pinto beans he et!
Next day we had a new one
Dad put it up1wilh ease.
But this one had a door 'igrn
thcat read. "No Smoking,
Please!"

Pet of the Week winner
Maya has come a long way from her troubled beginnings
as an abused dog to relishing corn on the cob by her
now owners Dave and Ellie Schlager of Clewiston. Maya
is estimated to be between 6-8 years oid and was adopt-
ed by the Schlagers two years ago from the Key Largo
Animal Shelter. Maya spent her first two months with the
Schlagers hiding in fear before realizing she was i.. -"v
with someone who would love her and take care of her.
From being scared of everything to lapping up golden
delicious corn, it's easy to see why her owners say,
"Today you wouldn't know she was the same dog we
adopted." Her owners report that Maya is as outgoing as
any happy-go-lucky dog and is loving life again. Well
Maya, hope you love your day of pampering at Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital because you are this week's Pet
of the Week winner and have won a day at Doc Savvy's
for a special day at the spa. If you have any interesting
photos of your pet, or a great story to tell, e-mail them to
me at myoung@newszap.com for a chance to win your
special pet a special day. Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital is
located in Belle Glade and she can be reached at (561)

Clewiston native featured in Ebony Magazine


ME
Submitted to INI
Tekoa Summers, a Clewiston native, is featured with two other
Ebony Magazine honorees in their upcoming feature, "30
Leaders Under 30" to appear in the February edition of Ebony.


CLEWISTON Tekoa Sum-
mers was recently recognized
for her leadership ability and
community service in the
upcoming February issue of
Ebony Magazine. Ms. Summers
was selected among thousands
as "One of America's 30 Young
Leaders Under 30".
A native of Clewiston,. Tekoa
attended Clewiston High School
where she served as vice presi-
dent of her class for four consec-
utive years and was voted as
runner up for Homecoming
Queen.
Upon graduation Tekoa was
voted "Most Likely Too Suc-
ceed".
That prophecy has surely
come to past, since graduation
she has obtained a Bachelor's


degree in Criminal Justice and a
minor in Legal Studies from the
University of Central Florida
(UCF). While at the university
she led the UCF Mock Trial Team
to 3rd place at nationals, as well
as established UCF's Women's
Prayer Band. Women's Prayer
Band is a Christian organization
at UCF whose mission is to
encourage students to live
moral and healthy lifestyles.
Professionally, Tekoa is the
director of operations for a
Sprint-Nextel franchise and the
CEO and Founder of H.O.P.E.
(Helping Others Pursue Excel-
lence). H.O.P.E. is a self empow-
erment and motivational speak-
ing establishment. Through this
company, she travels the world
impacting thousands of lives.


Ms. Summers' audience
includes high schools, colleges,
juvenile centers, prisons, com-
munity and social organizations.
In addition, her company has
provided professional develop-
ment workshops and seminars
for several corporations. She has
delivered speeches for FedEx
headquarters, Exit Realty Inc.,
Tech Solutions Inc. and various
Sprint-Nextel franchises.
Although ambition drives
her, it has been her past that
compels her to help others. Dur-
ing her youth she suffered great
tragedies. At the tender age of
14, her mother died unexpect-
edly, leaving five kids to mourn.
However, her misfortune didn't
end there, less than two years.
after the loss of her mother, her


father passed away. At the age of
16 years old, Tekoa had to cope
with feelings of abandonment,
depression, loneliness and low
self-esteem.
Despite the obstacles she
faced, she chose the road less
taken, she persevered. She
vowed not to give up on her
dreams, and promised that she

Local leaders vote against EAA flood plan


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
And Mark Young
Lake Okeechobee The Tri-
Cities Board, a board that con-
sists of the elected officials of the
cities of Belle Glade, South Bay
and Pahokee, on Monday reject-
ed a proposal to flood the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area. Making
the argument that the flooding
could essentially tie up hundreds
of thousands of acres at a time,
the leaders were adamant in
their opposition to the plan.
"The bottom line is that %we
are in the EAA. The proposal
made by folks in Lee County,"
South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony said, "is to flood that
area- including our cities."
The vote came moments after
a presentation by the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, who covered the positive
and negative effects of the meas-
ure. By their account, the plan is
set to create more problems
than it sets out to solve.
"No, it doesn't make the estu-
aries any better," Chip Merriam
with the SFMWD said at the
meeting. "The restudy analysis
could not justify the cost of buy-
ing land and. building a huge
reservoir. that is underutilized in
most ears." .
The plan as it calls for now
would essentially turn many


acres of land in the Everglades
Agricultural Area into storage
areas for water from Lake Okee-
chobee when it becomes neces-
sary, with the idea that the water
will not further damage local
estuaries.
The plan costs, by SFWMD's
estimation, is $4 -billion, an
amount representatives of the
district said can be used to find
other less invasive. alternatives
that may provide a permanent
solution. "There is one job lost
for every 20 acres of land," said
Mr. Merriam. "This is something
we need to be mindful of. This
creates new problems for us to
deal with."
Directly affected by the pro-
posal, residents at the meeting
expressed concern.
Mary Ross Wilkerson, a resi-
dent of Belle Glade, asked, "If it
rains, what are we going to do?
Swim? I don't think we the peo-
ple should be suffering."
Leaders said they will work,
together in fighting the proposal.
The tri-cities board voted unani-
mously to oppose any plan that
proposes to flood the EAA.
"The folks in Lee County are
saying, 'Why don't we flood this
entire area?'" Mayor Anthony
said. "Even if you do that, it does-
n't work. And you take out a big
economic area." The mayor
called his neighboring elected


officials to oppose the measure.
"We need to become as active as
other counties. The cities yelling-
the loudest will be heard."
Mayor J.P. Sasser from Paho-
kee agreed with Mayor Anthony.
"To me, we're being asked to
correct a problem we didn't cre-
ate, once again. Why don't they
put some of the water r on their.
property"'
A question even Congress-
man Mark Foley once asked offi-
cials of Lee County as well. Areas
'affected by the Lee County pro-
posal include Western Palm
Beach County, Hendry County,
and Glades County.. Every repre-
sentative in all three regions have
been adamantly opposed to the
suggestion that their very liveli-
hood be destroyed for the sake of
Lee County property prices.
Research conducted by a
group of Moore Haven High
School students show that pollu-
tants coming out of Lake Okee-,
chobee and running into the
Caloosahatchee River, is far less
than pollutants coming from
urban development in the Cape
Coral and Tampa areas.
The city of Sanibel sparked
this controversy a few weeks ago
by threatening litigation against
.the SFWMD to halt water releas-
es, alleging Lake Okeechobee
pollutants were causing algae
blooms and destroying estuaries.


Lee County Commissioner Ray
Judah then implied that the sug-
arcane fields surrounding the
lake should be flooded with the
excess water and virtual finger
pointing began with accusations
leveled at lake area communi-
ties.
Glades County has already
stated that Lee Count. needs to
do. more research as to who is
really to blame and is calling for
everyone involved to work
together to solve a common
problem. And while Glades
County clearly puts the onus on
other areas, admits that, "We are
all polluters and we are all
responsible, so we all should
work together."
It has also been reported that
Hendry County has donated
$25,000 to the Army Corps of
Engineers to help in the pending
legal battle, although the city of
Sanibel is claiming they hale
already raised $1 million towards
the upcoming litigation, without
having to pass a referendum
onto the voters.
All three regions are preparing
for a battle they did not choose
and all three regions agree. on
one common item: No one will
% in in litigation and the ultimate
loser will be the taxpayer.who
has to flip the bill for government
vs. government litigation.

Gonzalez named support personnel of the year


Named West Glades Support
Personnel of the Year, Yessica
Gonzalez is well known for her
"can do" attitude, being willing to
do whatever it takes to make the
school an "A school. Her rela-
tionship with students and par-
ents is one of "how can we help?"
At any given time, her co-workers
say you can ask Yessica about-a
student and she can tell you the
grade, classroom and usually.
how that child is doing. -
"And there's more," declares
Principal Larry Luckey II. "Yessica
has worked diligently to learn
computer programs necessary to
keep up with county and state
regulations. She updates all the
folders on each student, keeps
track of attendance, completes all


admission and withdrawal of stu-
dents, takes care of all paperwork
for discipline, answers the phone
and helps parents at the desk,
plays nurse when Nurse Mrs.
Long is not available and she does
it all efficiently and with a smile.
"Yessica's dual language skill is
one of her greatest assets. There
are times when she is the only
adult able to communicate with a
parent or child. Her ability to
translate both verbal and written
communication has proved to be
a great asset to West Glades and
Glades County. When she was
told 'no one else could be found
to do it,' she translated the county
lunch application from English to
Spanish this year without regards
to extra compensation, she sim-


ply worked it into her schedule."
She is also known to always be
pleasant and helpful in the office,
going beyond her duties, acting as
a nurse when needed, writing
notes in Spanish to help teachers,
and calling Spanish-speaking par-
ents to help teachers. And this is
not all. Yessica advises teachers of
messages from parents immedi-
ately, and, if necessary, even goes
to the playground if a class is at
recess.
"Students love her," adds Prin-
cipal Luckey. "She is very dedicat-
ed and is a definite asset to West
Glades. She faces many chal-
lenges each day and meets them
all with the sweetest spirit, includ-
ing speaking with, our parents
who speak little or no English,


always with respect, giving them
a great sense of ease. She makes it
easier for them to keep in touch
with teachers because she gives
them a sense of great understand-
ing.
"Yessica Gonzalez is always
busy taking care of students'
records and handling all of the
teacher's 'annoying' requests, no
matter how big or small. She
takes on numerous little jobs as
additional responsibilities so that
things get done without question.
She is an extremely hard worker
and really deserves this reward."
With his winning smile, Princi-
pal Larry Luckey II, concludes,
"Every school could use a Yessica
Gonzalez."

cry. for Shinichi Fukae, a native
of Japan, but a resident of Mine-
loa, Texas. Fukae, a FLW touring
pro finished last year's season
opening tournament in a disap-
pointing 140th place, but one
year later, Fukae wrapped up the
tournament title with. a $100,000
payday.
Despite sometimes strug-
gling with the English language,
Fukae's charming manner and
big smile has made him a crowd
favorite over the last few years
and with his ever present smile
beaming as wide as ever, his
wife Miyuki was happy t wins
Wal-Mart FLW Tour openerhis
year to devote his time to prac-
tice fishing Lake Okeechobee
and despite fishing a lake that
can change from day to day, his
efforts paid off in a big time
way.
The 2004 Angler of the Year
actually proved the point that
just because you see fish in one
spot, doesn't mean they will be
there the next day. While bass
can be very territorial, they also
have a challenge of a lake that
has seen some major changes
with record breaking storm sea-
sons and will move to where
they need to be..
Fukae spent much of his
practice fishing in Moonshine
Bay, an area of the lake that was
expected to pay off for many
anglers this tournament due to
its water clarity. But Fukae
moved off out of the bay after
the area was inundated with-
anglers and found his way to the
shallow waters in South Bay
where he would find the bulk of
his fish.
Fukae overcame Keith Pace
who led the field going into the'
final day of fishing and last
year's FLW Lake Okeechobee
champion Kelly Jordan who had
been hot on the heels of Pace
after trailing the leader by 1.3
pounds. Fukae was behind them
both and had the 2001 FLW


Lake Okeechobee champion
David Fritts right behind him.
Fukae's 28-plus pounds vault-
ed him over the competition to
take the first place grand prize.
Chip Harrison also had a better
final day, climbing from the bot-
tom five after day one of the
finals to claim second place and
a payday worth $36,000.
Pace would settle on third
place and a $25,000 check while
Jordan dropped to fourth to
earn $20,000. Fritts dropped to
fifth to take home $18,000.
The tournament paid out 75
places on both the professional
and co-angler sides. Clewiston's
own Scott Martin ended the
tournament in 42nd to earn
$10,000 and Florida favorite
Bobby Lane, from Lakeland, fin-
ished right behind Martin to
earn the same amount.
It would be a Georgia angler
:by the name of Tim Johnson to
take the top co-angler prize
worth $20,000 after tournament
favorite Darrel Stevens, who led
the field after the first day, strug-
gled to drop to tenth place over-
all..
Johnson earned a $20,000
victory with five bass weighing 8
pounds, 9 ounces. He caught
the bass casting a Rat-L-Trap to
an open-water ditch %while fish-
ing with Fritts. The ditch
dropped from one to five feet
and, according to Johnson,.
appeared to be a spawning area.
"This feels great," said John-
son, who has earned two top-
10s in Wal-Mart Bass Fishing
League competition since 2003.
"This is the first tournament that
I've ever fished as a co-angler. I
normally fish as a boater, and I
thought that it would be hard
fishing in the back of the boat,
but I had three terrific partners
this week."
Rounding out the top five co-
anglers were Fred Martin of
North Little Rock, Ark. (four
bass, 6 pounds, 9 ounces,
$10,000); Ron Chapman of Lake
Quivira, Kan., (three bass, 6
pounds, 8 ounces, $9,000);
Randy Clark of Mobile, Ala. (five
bass, 5. pounds, 13 ounces,
$8,000) and James Fredieu. of


Shinichi Fukae, 2006 FLW Tour Lake Okeechobee Champion,
vaulted into first place on day four after a staggering day's
catch on Lake Okeechobee. Fukae, originally from Japan,
now lives in Mineola, TX with his wife Miyuki.

Clewiston's Judy Israel gave her hometown a
great showing by placing 26th overall on the
co-angler division.


Saint Martinville, La. (three bass,
5 pounds, 3 ounces, $7,000).
Overall, 48 bass weighing 100
pounds, 8 ounces, including
eight five-bass limits, were
caught Saturday by the 10 pro
finalists.,

Clewiston gals win the '06 state soccer championship


By MarkYoung

CLEWISTON Coach Jairo
Sanchez was born in Columbia,
South America and played soc-
cer in the streets while teaching
himself all the skills necessary to
not only play the game, but
eventually to pass on his knowl-
edge to the youth of Clewiston.
Sanches arrived in Clewiston
from Canada in July of 2001 and
that's when an unexpected jour-
ney first began.
Sanchez didn't come to
Clewiston to teach soccer to this
city's young girls, but coinci-
dence and fate would prove
that to be the case when Mr. and
Mrs. Sanchez enrolled their two
young twin daughters into the
U-10 American Youth Soccer
Organization (AYSO) program.
Despite their father's back-
ground, the young girls were
equally new to the sport as most
of their teammates, but showed
their father's flair for the game.
Sanchez coached his first year
for the U-10 squad and didn't get
his squad past the semi-finals in
2003, but having received the
taste for state competition, set
out to create his version of a
"dream team."
He implemented the philoso-
phies of a championship dream,
which meant putting in the
.hours of hard work that past
state champions were notorious
for and the following year, in
2004, accomplished what no
other Clewiston squad had been
able to do making it to the
semi-finals and winning a
thrilling overtime victory against
Ocala to finish third in the state.
In 2005, he repeated his
team's semi-final appearance,
this time with the U-12Aeam and
under extreme weather condi-
tions, Clewiston once again
added a third place finish to
their city's growing list of youth
soccer accolades.
Understanding what it would
take to surpass their earlier
achievements, Sanchez upped
the anti by squeezing in grueling
practice games against proven
programs from West Palm
Beach and Miami and put more
of an emphasis on conditioning.
Equally important is the willing-
ness of his young team mem-
bers who devoted themselves to
the ideals of training hard and
sacrificing playtime for the
demands of practicing for one
single goal to bring home a
state title.
This month, in Ocala, that
dream became a stark reality as
Clewiston's U-12 squad made
their hometown proud by bring-
ing home state championship
glory, a historic sports accom-


plishment for America's Sweet-
est Town.
With the squad's spiritual
leader and calming presence by
their side in assistant coach Irma
-Sanchez, 12 Clewiston gals
competing in the UL 12 state com-
petition embarked on a champi-
onship journey that began in
November and culminated this
month-with the ultimate prize.
It was one of five Clewiston
teams who made the trip, but
only one local squad would
make the finals and win it all.
The state championship tourna-
ment kicked off Jan. 14 as
Clewiston took the field against
an unknown opponent in
Homestead. Homestead didn't
know anything about Clewiston
either, but soon would, as the
trio of Brenda Prudencio, Fanay
Sanchez-Riveros, and Ileana
Sanchez-Riveros took over the
action to spark Clewiston to a 6-
0 victory with the twins, Brooke
Flynn and Leslie Almanza
Saccounting for the bulk of the
scoring.
The victory swept Clewiston
into competition with Weston, a
team .Clewiston knew well from
several pre-season scrimmages.
While Weston always proved to
be a tough opponent, they had
not defeated Clewiston in play
and would not get the victory
this time around as well.
It was a scoreless battle
through much of the action, but
young Ileana broke the dead-
lock with two minutes left in
regulation to give Clewiston a 1-
0 victory, which would pit them
against one of the host teams
from Ocala in third round
action.
Ocala, with more experience
.iat this level, was favored to
knock off the young Clewiston
team, but with Ocala already
having suffered a 4-3 loss to Key
Largo earlier in the tournament,
Clewiston was primed to knock
the host squad out of the tourna-
r.:ment. Leslie opened up the
scoring early and Ileana sealed
the win late in the game as
Clewiston put together their
third straight shut out victory.
On a cold Monday morning,
Clewiston took the field.against
another Homestead team who
played the now tournament
favorite squad from Key Largo
to a 1-1 tie. Homestead would

score the first goal of the tourna-
ment against Clewiston to take
an early lead and held onto it
until late in the game.
t Coach Sanchez opted for a
:,quicker midfield and turned to
Leslie, the twins, Maryly Rico
and Diana Hernandez to turn up
the heat. It only took a couple of
minutes for the move to pay off

Clewiston's AYSO state soccer champions brought home Clewiston's first ever AYSO
state title and did it with three shutout victories, one overtime victory, and a pair of to the
end dog fights.


with the tying goal and Kelsie
Moore coming in as Clewiston's
new goaltender proved to be
valuable as Moore fended off
several tough shots to keep
Homestead out of the net to
send the game into overtime.
Clewiston's defense stepped
up. their intensity behind the
play of Olivia Rivera, Brooke,
and others, as Clewiston's for-
wards wore down Homestead's
defense to score the winning
goal in the first overtime period.
Clewiston extended their advan-
tage in the second overtime
period and held on to win a 3-2
ball game.
The victory sent Clewiston
into their first ever state champi-
onship finals, already guarantee-
ing to set a new Clewiston stan-
dard in AYSO soccer. A mere
two hours after their grueling
semi-final match with Home-
stead, the girls took the field
against Boynton Beach.
After a first half battle that
ended with goose eggs on the
scoreboard for both squads, it
would be Boynton who would
take the lead early in the second
half. Coach Sanchez made some
key adjustments, which led to
Diana putting Clewiston back in
the mix with the tying goal just
minutes, after Boynton's go.
ahead score.
The very next trip down the
field for Clewiston saw some
great passing that found Fanya
wide open for the shot and she
made good on the opportunity


to score what would prove to be
the winning goal. The game fea-
tured national referees, one of
which would later compliment
the young Clewiston gals for
their talent and sportsmanship
on the field.
All the teams.that Clewiston
played against in these state
games have soccer year round,
whereas Clewiston does not.
Brooke Flynn was asked if the
state games were the hardest
she ever played. Her comment
that those games were nothing
compared to a regular practice
day with coached by Jairo and
Irma Sanchez.
When asked why she stated
that, "Before practice even
begins we have to run for 15
minutes. And I mean run! Not
jog! Then practice starts for two
hours and after ball handling
and skills are practiced we
scrimmage against coach Jairo
and coach Irma. The whole
team against just the two coach-
es and they always beat the
pants off of us at 10 or 12 to 0!
Now those were tough games!"
In the words of coaches Jairo
and Irma, "This was not only a
victory for the girls and the
coaches; this was not only a vic-
tory for the parents and the
small town of Clewiston, but a
lesson to all of us that hard
work, dedication and persever-
ance pay off big time. Without
the commitment made by all the
player's parents there would be
no victory. Teamwork includes


parent's dedication and support,
players' hard work and willing-
ness to go the extra mile and the
coaches' determination. This is
what defines a victory. This
teams hard work and dedication
is an honorable example to the
city of Clewiston. It is with great
pride and joy that we dedicate
this state championship to our
12 special girls. I would like to
share with you what makes
each player special to us and a
valuable member of this cham-
pionship team.
"Jersey #2 Brooke Flynn:
At only 49" tall she is a pack.of
dynamite. Great at defense, she
is not afraid' of other players
who are three times her size.
Brooke. is an indispensable
strong defender. She has the
heart of a lion. And since she
always smiles her pretty smile,
even while playing her hardest,
makes her a joy to have on any
team.
Jersey #3 Kelsie Moore:
One or our goalkeepers who is
only a couple of inches taller
than Brooke. No ball can pass
our very skilled Kelsie. With her
pretty Barbie doll face who
would think that she was as
tough as a linebacker.
Jersey #4 Olivia Rivera:
Another fighter who is very,
strong and quick on defense.
Who would think that this quiet
shy little girl can put on such a
fight on the field?
Jersey #5 Ileana Sanchez-
Riveros: She knows how to


'orgnize. the team and where to
put tne ball. Her tnind, game
'and skills are amazing. Her pret-
-ty face and her timidity give her
a special charm.
Jersey #6 Fanva Sanchez-
Riveros: Her quick thinking and
strong skills make her a good
player in every single position.
Her slim body and pretty face
make her a little Mia Hamm
look-a-like.
Jersey #7 Angela Foun-
tain: Amazing! This is Angela's
first %ear playing soccer and she
is an awesome goalkeeper and
very strong as a defensive play-
er. Angela's good sense of
hurnor was a definite bonus to
our team.
Jersey #8 Elizabeth
Minero: A very strong defender
and one of the best fighters. Eliz-
abeth couldn't make it to state
due to an injury but remained a
part of the Team until the end. I
Jersey #9 Brenda Pruden-
cio: Couldn't practice with the
team during pre-season due to a
broken wrist, but was ready for
the state tournament as a very
strong forward with a never-
ending smile.
Jersey #10 Leslie Alman-
za: Leslie is a synonym for
speed, with her long legs she
makes any opponent tremble in
their shin guards. Any opposing
coach is sure to worry when
Leslie takes off down the field.
Jersey #11 Diana Hernan-
dez: One of the. strongest and
fastest defenders Diana's confi-
dence and skills make her a very
good forward and the team's
hidden weapon.
Jersey #12 Cassandra
Paniagua: With her height and
her enthusiasm she gave every-
thing she had. She is a joy to
have on the team with her smile
and her. good attitude.
Jersey #13 Maryly Rico:
What a fighter! She has come a
long way and has become an
indispensable, strong mid-field-
er. With her calm and quiet per-
sonality she is also a joy to have
on our team.
Parents and players wanted
to thank coaches Jairo and Irma
Sanchez and Team Manager
Arnold Moore for all the hard
work and encouragement
through the past few months.
And a very special thank you to
the outstanding and very special
12 little girls from Clewiston
who brought home a state
championship and will live for-
ever in this small city's hearts
and minds.
Editor's note: Congratula-
tions to the Clewiston gals. You
have made all of us very proud!

SUWANEE This weekend
at the Suwannee Invitational the
Tigers faced off against some of
the best wrestlers, from not only
Florida, but also from Georgia,
Tennessee, Alabama, and
Texas.
Both of the top two teams in
Florida IA attended, which are
Suwannee and Clay, but the
tournament also saw Bradley
Central, from Tennessee, return
as a three-time state champion.
Also wrestling was a third-

Copell, and lastly Valdosta High
School from Georgia, which
boasts several state champs.
"This is by far a tougher tour-
nament than the state tourna-
ment and is a good chance to
see where we are at. If we can
place here we can place at
state," said Tiger head coach
Jess Alford.,
Clewiston ended the tourna-

Ichi the deer is environmental mascot


The South Florida Water
Management District named
Ichi the Deer as official mascot
of Environmental 'Education
and Wildlife Conservation
Awareness at the Jan, 11, 2006
Governing Board meeting in
West Palm Beach. ,
"As a board member, and
also as a parent, I believe that it
is imperative that we make a
special effort to promote
awareness, appreciation,
knowledge and stewardship of
our .natural resources, especial-
ly with our youngest residents,"'
said Governing Board Vice-
Chair Irela Bagua. "Ichi the
deer is a-delightful character
that children of all ages can
relate to and learn from."
Ichi's story is told in a book
about the rescue and adven-
tures of this lone baby deer
from the -Big Cypress Swamp.
Ichi was raised and cared for
-until old enough to be released
back into the w\\ild. The book
leaches that .all of nature's
creatures are special and per-
sonify the importance of life.
"EE-Chee" is the Seminole
word for deer. The spelling in
Japanese "Ichi" means number
one. So Ichi became the num-
ber one baby deer.
Ichi's tale was written by
Robert Edward Wallace and is
based on a true story. The ani-
mal was first cared for by a
local zoo in Hollywood, Fla.
and then by Mr. Wallace and his
wife until its release. In August'
2005 the author received the
Best Florida Book Award from

cate residents about how the

solved, what governments and
businesses are already doing,

progression before the facility is
expected to .open its doors some-
time in August of 2007.
According to Mr. Ward, the next
step is to sign a letter of intent on or
about March 15, which will then
give the contractor 19 months to
have the facility ready to receive
inmates.
"It will have a staggering impli-
cation for Glades County," said Mr.
Ward. "It will create new jobs and
will create a new tax base, which
the county will then see a lot more
new tax dollars, as much as
$300,000 to $400,000 yearr"
The Glades County Sheriff's
Department currently employs
approximately 64 people, from
deputies to administration person-
nel. Upon the opening of the new
correctional facility, Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon is expecting to double
the size of his overall staff, with an
expected 80 new jobs for the sher-
iff's office, which will include cor-
rectional officers and administra-
tive staff.
While the facility will technically
be owned by the private corpora-
tion, it will be a county-run opera-
.tion through and through with the
ultimate goal to turn the facility
back over to the county upon com-
pletion of paying off the financial
burden, which the corporation has
levied upon themselves. Mr. \\ rd

"The Moore Haven Hotel was
there and where the Chalo Nitka
grounds are now, there was just
one building there: A small build-
ing that they had used for a school-
house. Right near there we built a
small fire and we cooked our din-

in 1918.
"To cross the Caloosahatchee
River we had to cross over on two

expects it to take as much as 20
years to repay the $33 million in
bonds it took to secure the facility
and, "at the end of those 20 years, it
will be returned to the county," he
said.
The facility is expected to have a
440-bed capacity, of which Sheriff
Whiddon said only 40-50 beds will
be needed by the county. The
remainder of the cell space will be
rented out to Immigration and the
U.S. Marshall Service to house their
additional inmates.
It is not a new concept and is a
common practice, especially with
state-run facilities like The GEO
Group, who privately operates cor-
rectional institutions, under state
guidelines, and contracts with the
state to house their inmates.
GEO currently operates two
major facilities around the lake
area, with one in Moore Haven and
one in South Bay. The new I.C.E.
facility will be located across the
road from. the Moore Haven GEO
institution, on land donated by the
county. Glades County purchased
75 acres across from the GEO
prison and is donating the use of 25
acres to build the new facility..
"This is the .biggest project
Glades County has ever taken,"
said Mr. Ward. "Everyone knows
that smaller counties can't com-
pete with bigger counties for
wages. For too long we have been

Alico, Inc. reports first quarter earnings


* 'a. ,t .~'r~,.rWn "'6Ufl~,~ESUfl&. 4 'S
~- -'~


LABELLE Alico, Inc., (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO) one of the south's
best known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, announced net
earnings for the first quarter of fis-
cal year 2006 of $1.2 million, or
$0.16- per share, compared with
net earnings of $1.0 million, or
$0.13 per share, during the first
quarter of fiscal year 2005.
Operating revenues during the
first quarter of fiscal year 2006
totaled $6.7 million, compared
with $7.6 million for the first quar-
ter of fiscal year 2005. The
decrease in operating .revenues
was primarily due to decreased
revenues from the sale of rock and
sand products.
John R. Alexander, chairman
andcChief executive officer, noted,
"Hurricane Wilma, a category
three hurricane, swept through
southwest Florida on Oct. 24,
2005, causing extensive damage to
the company's crops and infra-
structure in Collier and Hendry
Counties. The company recorded


a casualty loss of $5.7 million of
damages to crop inventories and
infrastructure from the hurricane.
However, increased income from
bulk real estate sales ($4.4 million
compared with $0.0 million for the
three months ended Nov. 30, 2005
and Nov. 30, 2004, respectively)
and interest and investment
income ($5.0 million for the. three
months ended Nov. 30, 2005 com-
pared with $1.3 million for the
three months ended Nov, 30,
2004) offset the casualty loss and
loss from operations ($1.0 million
loss compared with $1.1 million
income for the three months
ended Nov. 30, 2005 and 2004,
respectively)."
Addressing the divisional
results, Mr. Alexander noted that:
The Citirus Division reported
operating profits of $0.6 million
during the first quarter of fiscal
2006, compared with $0.8 million
for the first quarter, of fiscal year
2005. Hurricanes, citrus canker
finds and increased real estate
development in the central and


southern portions of Florida where
the majority of citrus is produced
within the state have combined to
reduce the supply of citrus for the
past two years; resulting in price
increases for citrus products
across the industry. However, crop
losses in the current fiscal year due
to hurricane Wilma are expected
to continue to offset the increased
prices for citrus products.'
Sugarcane and sod generated
a loss of $0.6 million for the three
months ended Nov. 30,2005 com-
pared with earnings of $0.4 million
for the three months ended Nov.
30, 2004. Fertilizer is the largest
component of production costs
for the Company's sugarcane
crop. Due to price increases in the
cost of fuel used to produce fertiliz-
er, fertilizer prices increased 23
percent over their prior year levels.
The increased price of fertilizer
caused the Company's production
costs per ton to rise above the
'expected net realizable value. As a
result, the Company adjusted its
inventoried sugarcane crop by


$834 thousand in the first quarter
of fiscal 2005, charging it to cost of
sales. This adjustment, caused by
the price increase in fertilizer
described above, was the primary
cause of the loss.
Ranch earnings increased
during the three months ended
Not. 30, 2005 when compared to
the same period a year ago ($0.5
million compared to $0.2 million
for the quarters ended Nov. 30,
2005 and 2004, respectively).
Prices for Alico's beef products
have improved during the current
year compared to the prior year
($0.82 per pound average for the
first quarter months of fiscal year
2006, compared to $0.76 per
pound for the first quarter of fiscal
2005). The price increase is the pri-
mary cause for the increased prof-
its in the current year.
Management expects contin-
ued profitability from the compa-
ny's agricultural operations in fis-
cal year 2006, but at reduced levels
from fiscal year 2005 due to the
hurricane.

UF researchers say citrus greening can be managed


GAINESVILLE Canker
topped the list of worries for the
Florida citrus industry until citrus
greening .- described as the
world's most serious citrus dis-
ease was found in groves last
year.
"In the long term, the industry
can live with and manage the
canker problem, but citrus
greening is a fatal disease that's
an even larger threat to the
state's signature crop," said
Harold Browning, director of the
University of Florida's Citrus
Research and Education Center
in Lake Alfred. "In other areas of
the world where greening is a
problem, it has never been suc-
cessfully eradicated."
The disease, which slowly
weakens and kills all types of cit-
rus trees, causes fruit to become
lopsided and taste bitter, making
it unusable: Fruit does not devel-
op the desired color, hence the
greening name. There is no
known cure for the disease,
which is on the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's select list of
threats to plants and wildlife.reg-
ulated by the Agricultural Bioter--
rorism Protection Act. Greening
does not harm people
Browning said the fatal bacte-
rial disease is transmitted by the
Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina
citri), a tiny insect that is now
widely distributed throughout
Florida, and the disease has been
found in more than 440 different
locations in 11 counties. He said
it's not practical to eradicate cit-
rus greening, but the spread of
the disease can be slowed with
an effective integrated pest man-
agement program (IPM) that
includes limited use of systemic
insecticides and beneficial
insects that attack the psyllid.
The introduction of a benefi-
cial wasp was the first step in an
expanded research program by
UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences to develop a
wide range of best management
practices to prevent greening
from destroying the state's $9.1
billion citrus industry, Browning
said. UF researchers are also.
developing management pro-
grams to combat canker.
Marjorie Hoy, a UF professor
of entomology and biological


control expert, said the psyllid
was first detected in two South
Florida counties in June 1998. At
the time, the psyllid was consid-
ered to be a significant pest, and
although it did not appear to
carry the deadly bacterial disease
that causes citrus greening,, it
made establishment of greening
more likely if the disease were
introduced. Damage caused by
the psyllid included stunting of
new growth and sooty mold for-
mation on the honeydew pro-
duced by the psyllids.
"When citrus greening started
showing up in citrus trees across
the state in September 2005, we
knew that that we had a potential
disaster on our hands, and that
the psyllid was carrying and
transmitting the deadly disease,"'
she said. In an attempt to reduce
populations of the Asian citrus
psyllid, Hoy and Ru Nguyen, an
entomologist with the Florida.
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, imported
two natural enemies of the psyl-
lid from Taiwan and Thailand.
After evaluating the parasitic
wasps under quarantine condi-
tions to make sure they would be
effective against the psyllid and
not harm the environment, they
began releasing the biological
controls about six years ago.
"One of the beneficial wasps
(Tamarixia radiata) is now wide-
ly established throughout Flori-
da, feeding on the psyllids and
reducing their population by as
much as 80 percent in some
locations between August and
November," Hoy said. "We're
also relying on naturally occur-
ring predacious insects such lady
beetles, lacewings and spiders
that consume more than 90 per-
cent of psyllid eggs and
n. mphs." -
. Unfortunately, even one psyl-
lid can transmit the deadly green-
ing disease, so biological control
cannot be the only tool in man-
aging greening. Any control will
require a holistic approach, Hoy.
said. .
"Management tools that are
developed should be compatible
with these and other natural ene-
mies that suppress citrus pests
such as mites, whiteflies, scale
insects, leafminrers and mealy-


bugs," Hoy said. "Indiscriminate such as Aldicarb can reduce psyl-

Crist endorsed by


Florida Nurses Assoc.


TALLAHASSEE Charlie
Crist, attorney general and
candidate for governor,
announced that the Florida
Nurses Association, the largest
statewide organization of reg-
istered nurses. representing
more than 11,000 nurses
across Florida, endorsed his
candidacy to become Flori-
da's next governor. The
announcement was made at a
news conference at the Flori-
da Nurses Association, where
a number of nurses gathered
with Crist.
"Nurses are critical in deliv-
ering essential services and
caring for those in need, "said
Crist. "I am pleased that Flori-
da's nurses are endorsing my
canipaign to become Florida's
next governor. No group of
professionals knows more
about the healthcare chal-
lenges facing our citizens than
Florida's nurses,"


The National Center for
Healthcare Workforce Analy-
sis projects that by 2020, Flori-
da will need 61,000 more
nurses than are currently pro-
jected to be available. Crist
met with a group of nurses to
discuss the critical shortage
facing the nursing field and
learn more about the chal-
lenges they face on a, daily
basis.
"The Florida Nurses Asso-
ciation endorses Charlie Crist
for governor because he
understands nurses and our
passionate commitment to
health care and the important
role we play inN126at increas-
ing the number of nurses and
allied health professionals in
the state will help promote a
healthy future for all Floridi-
ans. The Florida Nurses Asso-
ciation will do everything we
can to elect Charlie Crist the
next governor of Florida."

Pareigis, director of the Florida
Agency for Workforce Innovation,
emphasized continued availability
of the Citizen Soldier Program that
allows private employers to apply
for grants to help them supplement
pay for their employees who are
called to active duty.
. Federal law requires that
employers retain the same or simi-

Check out tax credits I


TALLAHASSEE Florida's
Agency for Workforce Innovation
and Workforce Florida, Inc. in
partnership with the Human
Resources' (HR) Florida State
Council, has urged Florida
employers to help ;their employ-
ees take advantage of the Federal
Earned Income Tax Credit
(EITC). The EITC is a refundable
federal income tax credit for low
to moderate income working
individuals and families. Taxpay-
ers who qualify and claim the
credit can pay less federal tax,
pay no tax or even get a tax
refund of up to $4,400.
Based on information from
the IRS it is projected that as
much as $635 million goes
unclaimed by the estimated
350,000+ working families/indi-
viduals in Florida who are not tak-
ing advantage of the EITC. Local
workforce and HR professionals,
in partnership with other key
community organizations around
the state will work together to
help working Floridians apply for
available tax credits. Employers
can learn how the EITC can help
their employees boost their
wages at no additional cost to the
business. With the tax refund, an
individual with a $7 hourly wage
can realize the equivalent of
about $9 an hour. The impact
goes beyond the individual and
.their, family as local communities
benefit from additional consumer
activity.
"The Earned Income Tax
Credit not only increases net pay
to qualified Florida workers, it
'also positively impacts the com-
munities where they spend their
extra take-home pay," said Susan
Pareigis, Director of the Agency
for Workforce Innovation. "We
want to assist businesses in help-
ing their employees to learn more
about and benefit from the
EITC."
Congress originally approved
the tax credit legislation in 1975.
The maximum benefit at that
time was $400 per year and has
grown to $4,400 for tax year 2005.,
Income arid family size deter-
mine the amount of the EITC.
Allowable earnings cap also
varies with family size, but can be
as high as $37 K. When the EITC
exceeds the amount of taxes
owed, it results in a tax refund to
those who claim and qualify for


"The Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child
Tax Credit provide a substantial incentive for
low to moderate income families to participate
in the workforce. At the same time it gives
these families the dignity of work and self-suf-
ficiency."
Curtis Austin, President of Workforce Florida


the credit.
To qualify, taxpayers must
meet certain requirements and
file a tax return. According to the
Center on Budget and Policy Pri-
orities 1.4 million Florida workers
received the EITC in 2003 (the
most recent year with complete
data) bringing into the state econ-
omy an additional $2.7 billion.
Many working families will quali-
fy.for both the EITC and the Child
Tax Credit (CTC). The EITC will
be larger, but the.CTC can also
provide a significant income
boost. .
"This is a program that literally
makes work pay," said Curtis
Austin, President of Workforce
Florida. "The Earned Income Tax
Credit and the Child Tax Credit
provide a substantial incentive for
low to moderate income families
to participate in the workforce. At
the same time it gives these fami-
lies the dignity of work and self-
sufficiency."
In addition to an end-of-year
lump sum refund, most individu-
als who qualify for the EITC can
also get:a weekly/periodic pay
supplement at no.cost to their
employers by, filing a W-5 "EIC
Advance Payment Certificate"
with HRpavroll, thereby increas-.
ing net pay and usually job reten-,
tionisatisfaction.
"Imagine the impact on your
employees' morale and loyalty
when you help them increase
their net income," said Sherell
Hendrickson, PHR, President of
HR Florida State Council, Inc.,
"It's a win-win situation, all the
way around for the individual,
the employer and the community
w\ho benefits from additional dol-
lars circulating in the economy. "
Some Florida employers pro-
vide a W-5-to all their new hires
enabling those who qualify to
take home a bigger paycheck
right from the start, of their


* employment. Other employers
go one step further and, during
tax season, bring in tax prepara-
tion volunteers during the work-
day, at lunchtime, during shift
changes, or after work to help.
their employees fill out their
taxes.

Florida Beef Cattle

Short Course May3-5


GAINESVILLE The 55th
Annual Florida Beef Cattle Short
Course at the University of Florida
will be held on May 3-5, 2006, at
the Hilton University of Florida
Conference Center in Gainesville,
Florida. Beef cattle production in
Florida is a dynamic and chal-
lenging industry. Every producer
faces challenges regarding eco-
nomics and marketing, resource
utilization, and management
decisions. These challenges are
on-going processes that necessi-
tate current information for deci-
sion making. The 55th Annual
Florida Beef Cattle Short Course
addresses these challenges that
the beef cattle producers face on
an everyday basis.
*On Wednesday, the after-
noon program will begin at I
p.m. with the focus on marketing
and land resource utilization
challenges. As the cattle cycle
evolves, knowing where we are
and where the market may be
headed is always pertinent. In
addition, this session will focus
on a timely and important topic
for the sustainability of the beef
cattle industry. The beef cattle
enterprise's land resources and
the continuing issue of land use
and value in Florida will be
approached on a number of dif-
ferent fronts. The day will con-
clude with a reception and Allied,
Industry Trade Show, a great
chance for cattlemen and allied'
industry representatives to inter-
act and share information.
*On Thursday the course will.
addresses some of the manage-'
ment issues of beef cattle produc-
tion. Nutrition, cow herd man-
agement, beef products, and beef
product procurement systems
will all be addressed. These basic
issues of beef production will be
approached with improved pro-


duction efficiency in mind. Lunch
will be generously sponsored by
Farm Credit of North Florida. The
afternoon program moves out-
side to utilize the UF/IFAS, Beef
Teaching Unit to demonstrate calf
processing, cattle evaluation, and
hay production techniques.
Thursday evening is capped by
the annual Cattlemen's Steak-
Out, an opportunity to enjoy a
prime rib dinner and time for
conversation.
*Friday morning the .program
highlights the University of Flori-
da's ongoing dedication to. beef
cattle production. Two concur-,
rent sessions will showcase some
of the current research efforts in
the Animal Sciences and Agrono-
my departments that relate
directly to the Florida beef cattle
producer. Alternatively, that
morning will be an opportunity
for interested producers to attend
a Florida Beef Quality Producer
training session. Securing the
ability and the resources to main-
tain the bdef industry in Florida
will continue to be a challenge.
.Utilizing new and innovative pro-
duction practices to profitably
produce quality beef cattle and
beef products will be an impor-
tant key to maintaining the
opportunity we have to enjoy a
profession and lifestyle in the
beef industry.
Registration cost is $90 per
participant before April 21, and
includes a copy of the Beef Cattle
Short Course proceedings, trade
show, refreshments, and Steak-
Out ticket. Complete informa-
tion, schedules, and registration-
can be found online at
http://.,wvw.animal.ullt.edu. exten
sion/beef/bcsclndex.shtml, or

Effort launched to outlaw misuse of cell phone records


WASHINGTON, D.C. A
bipartisan group of U.S. senators
led by Florida's Bill Nelson moved
outlaw the sale of. telephone
records without consumers'
knowledge, a practice that worries
privacy experts and law enforce
ment agencies.
New legislation; introduced by
Nelson ,and two other senators,
would make it a crime to steal and
sell records for cell phones, tradi-
tional landlines and Internet-based
telephones.
The bill would criminalize the
act of making false statements to
obtain a customer's.phone record
or access records on the Internet
without permission. It also would
become a crime for a phone com-
pany employee to sell customer
data without permission.
Among those sponsoring the
-bill with Nelson are Senate Judicia-
ry Chairman Arlen Specter, a Penn-
sylvania Republican, and Charles
Schumer of New York. The bill
would have to go through
Specter's committee as well as the
commerce panel on which Nelson
serves. Nelson, an outspoken pri-
vacy advocate who is leading the
charge in the Senate to regulate
information brokers after huge
security breaches last year, said:
"This is a simple matter of con-
sumer privacy. I feel strongly that.
sensitive personal information.
including our cell phone records.
should be protected from the eyes
of strangers."
Reps. Marsha Blackburn, a Ten-
nessee Republican, and Ja\ Inslee,
a Washington Democrat, plan to,
offer similar legislation in the U.S.
House of Representatives \\hen it
returns later this month.
There are more than 200 million
cell phone subscribers who could
be.potential victims, according to a
wireless industry organization.
Associated Press.
Phone companies and federal
lawmakers are demanding it be
halted. The Federal Communica-
tions Commission is launching an
-investigation. The business ot buy-.
ing and selling private phione-call-
ing records is suddenly under
scrutiny. ,
The Internet has taken some-
thing old a tool for monitoring
cheating spouses or conniving
business associates and made it
newagain.
Last week, at least -0 Web sites
were offering cell-phone numbers,
unlisted numbers and calling
records For $110 or so, they would
sell you a month's worth of cell-
phone calling records for any hum-'
ber, no questions asked.
Such records ha\e been bought
and sold for decades, prized by pri-
vate investigators and people in less
legitimate professions, using a
.technique known as "pretexting."
Pretexters call phone companies
and records holders pretending to
be regulators, customers or
employees and get them to divulge
account information.
Pretexting is in the spotlight.


According to reports this month,
Chicago's Police Department
warned officers that their cell-
phone records were available
online. Illinois' attorney general
subsequently subpoenaed Locate-
cell.com, which sells such records.
Locatecell.com, which is run by
a company called 1st Source Infor-
mation Specialist, was not reach-
able by phone to explain its meth-
ods and did not respond.to e-mail
seeking comment. But according
to industry insiders, companies like
it get information from a relatively
small group of professional "pre-
texters."
The pretexters buttress their
believability by buying such -per-
sonal data as Social Security num-
bers from online database compa-
nies. Often a name, address and
the last four digits of a person's
SocialSecurity number are the only
information needed to get calling
records. Another route is to buy the
information- from insiders, like
phone company employees.
The Web sites that sell phone
records these days say they are not
doing anything illegal in obtaining
them. They say no specific prohibi-
tion exists against posing as some-
one else to obtain pri ate informa-
tioh as long as the data are not
financial. '
In the absence of criminal pros-
ecution, cell-phone carriers have
turned to civil litigation, with some'
success.
The carriers, however, say they
cannot do it alone.
"We need the assistance of the
law-enforcement community'
here," said Joe Farren, spokesman
for CTIA, which represents the
wireless phone industry.
That help may finally be arriv-
ing. Sens Charles E. Schumer (D.,
N.Y), Arlen Specter (R., Pa.) and
Bill Nelson (D., Fla.) introduced a
bill yesterday that would make it
illegal to pose as someone else
when calling a phone company, or
for an employee to- sell. customer
data.
In the meantime, customers
can put up a minor roadblock for
pretexlers themselves by asking,
their phone company to set a PIN
code for their account instead of
using their Social Security number.
Robert Douglas of Steamboat
Springs, Colo., a former private
investigator who has testified on
Capitol Hill about pretexting, notes
that this is not a good defense cus-
tomer service representatives can
often be browbeaten into giving
personal information even if it is
protected by aPIN and password.
Neither will it help, of course, if
an employee is on the take. 109th
Congress :
2nd Session
S.2178
To make the stealing and selling
of telephone records a criminal
offense in the senate of the United
States
Jan. 18; 2006
Mr. Schumer (for himself, Mr.
Specter, Mr. Nelson of Florida, Mr.


Burns, Mr. Cornyn, and Mr. Reid)
introduced the following bill;
which was read twice and referred
. to the Committee on the Judiciary
ABillI
To make the stealing and selling
of telephone records a criminal
offense.
Be it enacted by the Senate and
House of Representatives of the
United States of America in Con-
gress assembled,
Section 1. short title.
This Act may be cited as the
'Consumer Telephone Records
Protection Act of 2006'.
Sec. 2. findings.
Congress finds that -
(1) Telephone records can be of
great use to criminals because the
information contained in call logs
listed in such records includes a
wealth of personal data;
(2) Many call logs reveal the
names of telephone users' doctors,
public and, private relationships,
business associates, and more;
(3) Although other personal
information such as social security
numbers may appear on public
documents, which can be
accessed by data brokers, the only
warehouse of telephone records is
located at the phone companies
themselves;
(4- Telephone records may be
accessed without authorization, of
the customer by -
(A) An employee of the tele-
phone company selling the data;
(BI 'Pietexting,' \\hereby a data
broker or other person pretends to
be the owner of the phone and
convinces the telephone compa-
ny's employees to release the data
to them; or
(C) Unauthorized access of
accounts via the Internet; and
(5) Because telephone compa-
nies encourage customers to man-
age their accounts online, many set,
up the online capability in advance.
Many customers never access their
Internet accounts, however. If
someone seeking the information
activates-the account before the
customer, he or she can gain unfet-
tered access to the telephone
records and call logs of that cus-
tomer.
Sec. 3. Fraud and related actiity,
in connection with obtaining confi-
dential phone records information
from a covered Entity.,
Chapter 47 of title 18, United
States Code, is amended by insert-
ing after section 1038 the following:

READING A
NEWSPAPER MAKES
YOU A MORE INFORMED
AND INTERESTING
PERSON.


Do you hate the chaos that your mornings bring?


Do you hate your mornings?
Do you wake up in a bad mood?
Do you feel like you got up on the
wrong side of the bed? Your
mornings do not have to be like
this. All it takes is a little thought
to change the CHAOS you have
been living in.
That little thought is as simple
as knowing what clothes you are
wearing when you get up. If you
will think about your morning
before you actually have to face
it; ,your mornings will run
smoother. It all starts with a little
before bed routine.
Half the battle with your
morning has to do with you not
being prepared to start your day.
You run around in a tizzy trying to
do all those last minute things
you procrastinated about the
night before. Here is what hap-
pens when we put something off.
Let's start with our before bed
routines.
1. We go to bed at I or 2 a.m.


r-,


The ,;:.

Flylady '


by Maria ,,.
Cilley



and have to get up at 7 a.m. We
procrastinated by not going to
bed at a decent hour. Then we
can't get up on time.
2. After you hit the snooze but-
ton a few times and it is 7:30 a.m.
and to get to work on time we
have to leave at 7:45 a.m. Now
you have 15 minutes to get
dressed and out the door and you
have no clean clothes.
3. Not only did you go to bed
late, but you did not lay out your
clothes for tomorrow. So there
again you have procrastinated


and you are rushing around.
4. Now you are feeling the
time crunch and the pressure of
being late to work or an appoint-
ment again. Then the guilt starts
to pile on.
5. With the guilt comes blam-
ing others and not looking at
what our role was in our perpetu-
al tardiness. Then we have mar-
tyrdom and the loud yelling voic-
es that just add to the stress along
with the guilt.
6. Now we are half dressed,
jumping in a car trying to put on
makeup while driving and not
paying attention to what we are
doing. Not to mention that you
have skipped breakfast and there
is not even time for a quick drive
through the golden arches. Well
that could be the only positive
thing about rushing; not time for
negative nutrition with fast food.
7. Next thing we know the
blue lights are flashing in our
rearview mirror and we have yet


another speeding ticket to have to
explain and pay for.
8. That is, if we are lucky and
we haven't had a car accident
with our babies in the car.
9. More money wasted all
because we procrastinated and
didn't go to bed in a decent hour
to get up and start our day on the
right foot instead of behind the
eight ball.
Just writing this makes me
nauseated. I could not live this
- way anymore. The constant
surge of adrenalin is hard on our
bodies. We have to find a way to
relieve the stress that our procras-
tination causes in our lives. Are

you listening to me! Procrastina-
tion can kill us and maim our
children. It can be a slow painful
death of our bodies turning on us
because of the constant surge of
adrenalin with immune dysfunc-
tion or it can be a quick one with
a car accident. You have a choice
to stop this right now!


If I can ever get you to make
peace with your mornings by
establishing a few simple habits
in your life; you will never go
back to living this way. The calm-
ness of the mornings will start
you out on a firm and steady pace
for your whole day.
Before you go to bed:
1. Gather up the items you will
need for tomorrow and put them
by your front door.
2. Check your calendar for
tomorrow's appointments
3. Lay out your clothes for
tomorrow
4. Brush and floss your teeth
and wash your face.
5. Go to bed at a decent hour,
this way you will feel like getting
up!
When you get up in the morn-
ing:
1. Get dressed as soon as your
feet hit the floor
2. Swish and Swipe the bath-
room while you are getting


dressed.
3. Eat Breakfast, drink water
and. take your supplements and
medications
4. Gather up the items to take
with you.
5. Do not wait till the last
moment to leave your home. It is
OK to be early.
These simple habits will
change your life. The main thing
you have to do is go to bed at a
decent hour so you will have the
energy to get started on your day.
You can do this.
Are you ready to FLY though
your day with a simple Before
Bed Routine and Morning routine
starting you off on a calm note?

your CHAOS; check out her web-
site and join her free mentoring
group at www.FlyLady.net or
