Skeletal remains found in Muse


Three suspects
now accused of
first degree murder
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MUSE Investigators in
a strange disappearance case
made a gruesome discovery in
Muse last week.
FDLE received a tip. last week
about the possible homicide
that took place in Muse about


five years ago.
On Aug. 21 law enforcement
officers searched the property at
25440 Dixie Road in the Muse
community of Western Glades
County. They found a man's re-
mains buried in a grave near a
barn on the property.
The remains are believed to
be that of Davronjon Bakeev,
29, who was reported missing
to Lee County Sheriff's Office in
November 2002.
Glades County Sheriff's inves-


tigators and special FDLE agents
arrested the Mr. Bakeev's, Ha-
dassah Bakeev, 31, and her sis-
ter, Tabitha Labay, 33 on Aug.
23. They are both charged with
one count of first-degree murder,
and are being held in the Glades
County Jail.
According to information
from FDLE, the investigation led
agents to presume that Davron-
jon Bakeev went to Muse to see
his children and speak to his es-
tranged spouse.


Active lifestyles: Glades County on the move


INl/Nena Bolan
Mrs. Bryant has a green thumb that specializes in orchids. Her orchids were for sale at
the Lions Club yard sale on Aug. 18 in Moore Haven.


While at the house, Mr. Ba-
keev was allegedly attacked by
a third person and shot. Agents
believe that Hadassah Bakeev
made a contract with that person
in exchange for an automobile.
The perpetrators of the crime
are alleged to have disposed of
both the body and the victim's
vehicle.
" On Aug. 28, FDLE reported
that a third suspect was arrested
in connection with the murder
by law enforcement agencies in
Salem, Ohio.


Jessy Castelucci, 25, was
taken into custody as he was
leaving his sister's residence. He
is also charged with first-degree
murder.
"At this point we have three
people in custody and we will
continue to interview them in-
dividually. The third suspect is
waiting for extradition back to
Florida," said Larry K. Long, with
the FDLE Fort Myers office.

Muse well covered


by county services


Residents discuss
current issues
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MUSE The community of
Muse in western Glades County
covers about 100 square miles.
Many residences are situated
on an acre or more which is
attractive to people who want
a rural lifestyle where families
can raise farm animals, build
,workshops or expand land-
scaping.
"It is a quiet, rural area
where your nearest neighbor


is an acre or so away," said Jo-
seph Richter, Muse Community
Association president.
The land in Muse is a mix of
oak and palm hammocks, pine
woods, small cypress stands
and cow pasture. The main
traffic arteries are paved, but
once you leave these you will
travel mostly on dirt and shell
roads. The Babcock Ranch is
the border on the west side
of Muse, S.R. 29 is the eastern
border, C.R. 78 is the southern
border and C.R. 74 borders the
north side.
See Muse Page 12

Smokey the Bear has a permanent job in Muse. His fire danger sign will inform residents and
visitors of severity of daily fire risk. Smokey is in front of the fire lookout tower on C.R. 720.

Growing orchids in Florida is fun


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
Although this small volume is
not among the newest in the book
world, or in your home garden,
it's among the most cherished for
those who take kindly to, that is,
those who love orchids.
It was the late Albert P. Hol-
lingsworth who wrote, "Growing
Orchids Is Fun," and it was he
who proved his point for years
and years, and is still doing so
with the twenty fifth edition of his
small book on selecting, growing
and enjoying orchids.
The book was written for be-
ginners, hobbyists and everyone
who admires and takes joy in the
adventures of growing these ex-
otic flowers. The thrill of walking
into your room or yard and seeing
the beauty, brilliance and gran-
deur of orchids in full bloom can
bring great happiness and that
with minimal work and care.
This small book was written
in everyday terms of easy and
practical ways that you can use to
grow your own orchids.
One spray an arch of or-
chids, several blooming at one
time on one stem, often stays
fresh and beautiful for months.
Orchids are successfully 'grown
on windowsills, patios, in shade
under trees, and actually in trees,
and, of course, porches. They
also excel in shade houses.


iNi/Barbara uenilecK
Growing Orchids is Fun.
As to the secrets of successful
orchid growing there are none,
except perhaps for the secret of
love for the flower itself. The five
simple rules are: proper watering,
air, light, warmth, and fertilizer.
Regarding the first rule of wa-
tering, the answer is simple: Let
your orchids drink water like you
do. When they're thirsty (dry) wa-
ter them, when the growing me-
dium is wet, leave them alone.
As to the water itself, if you can
drink it, it's fine for your orchids.
However, if your water source
goes through a softener,, flush
pots thoroughly with pure water
once a week to avoid salt build-


up. This is also a good practice if
you fertilize your plants regularly.
Pure water can be rainwater, dis-
tilled water, or well water.
The question is often asked:
Can I grow orchids in my home?
The answer is yes. A house that
is healthy for you is healthy for
orchids.
Phalaenopsis is one of the
most popular "home grown"
orchids and has become a most
popular houseplant. A multitude
of flowers is a spectacle to behold
and more importantly, the flowers
last longer than any other orchid.
From five to 10 flowers open at
one time with buds that con-
tinue to bloom for three months.
When the flowers are gone and
the stem is still green, cut off the
stem above a joint usually where
the first flower bloomed. Another
branching stem will grow and
like magic, flowers will continue
to bloom some for the entire
year.
Like thoroughbred horses, in
a little over 30 years, hybridizers
are producing highly prized Pha-
laenopsis plants of startling briU-
liant blooms. Varied new hybrids
constantly thrill growers with six-
inch blooms a triangle of petals
with a spade lip. Most have long
stem spikes with multitudes of
dazzling flowers. This spectrum
of colors includes white, light and
deep pinks, yellows, newly cre-
ated reds, deep stripes, spotted,
colored lips and many autumn


color combinations.
Some orchid-lovers compare
growing Phalaenopsis to African
Violets as the care is similar. How-
ever, take care with watering to
see that the plant is not kept satu-
rated. These handsome plants are
known as "low light" orchids and
will grow in about any situation
with bright indirect sunlight. Pha-
laenopsis will tolerate heavy sun-
light but if sunlight is too intense
it will burn the leaves: So move
it. They grow well throughout
the year by bright windows, in
the basement or anywhere there
is adequate light, moisture, heat
and movement of air. Where air
is dry, plants will benefit by rub-
bing a wet cloth over the leaves
or misting frequently. This is an
ideal houseplant to grow as it will
grow and bloom in more shade
than most other orchids.
"Growing Orchids Is Fun" is
beautifully illustrated with ex-
traordinary color photos, as well
as many how-drawings. The lan-
guage is clear, to the point, and
easy to understand even for be-
ginners. A beautiful book you'll
cherish for your own, or to give
as a gift to someone who loves
the beauty of orchids.

Stormwater treatment system protection


Little more than a week before
Tropical Storm Barry dumped a
much-needed four inches of rain
on Hendry County in late May,
Bobby McDaniel and his fam-
ily completed the majority of the
work on one of the largest private
agricultural stormwater manage-
ment systems in Florida.
Under design and construc-
tion for more than a decade, the
system was determined to be
functionally complete on June
30. Since July 9, an automatic
water/quality sampling device
has been ready to test its first
sample of water leaving the sys-
tem -- once water levels rise high
enough to cascade out of the de-
tention area.
In the 1990s, Everglades For-
ever legislation and the require-
ments of the McDaniel Ranch's
southern neighbor, 'the Semi-
noles, combined to drastically
change life on the approximately
20,000-acre Hendry County ranch
where three generations of the
McDaniel family have lived and
worked since the 1930s. Brothers
Bobby, Johnr, David and Jeff were
brought up handling cattle and
managing citrus groves.
"The Seminole leadership
came to us about improving the
water quality of the run-off com-
ing onto their property," said
Bobby McDaniel, eldest brother
and president of the McDaniel
Ranch. Partnership. "Our land
drains onto Seminole lands and,
as a soCteiln nation, the Semji-,
n,:l.s ar, :-ec their own water
quality standards."
The family- hired an engi-
neer to design a master drainage
plan. They also worked with the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD), the regional
state agency that has regulatory
authority over water quality and
water supply projects.
Thus began a seven-year
building project for a system that
has just under 3,000 acres of wa-
ter pre-treatment and detention
'areas and more than 44 miles of
levees.
"These levees are not the typi-
cal agricultural earth berms often
found in Florida, the engineer-
designed and SFWMD'approved
levees are a major construction
undertaking," said Paul Whalen,
a water resources consultant and
the architect and former director
of the SFWMD's agricultural Best
Management Practices (BMP)
program. "Not only are the height
and size of the levees impressive,
in some places over 12 feet tall,
but the meticulous manner in
which the McDaniels have con-
structed these levees makes it evi-
dent that they are intended to be
a permanent, enduring fixture for
the ranch's future," he added.
"Not all landowners so aggres-
sively pursue their responsibility.
The McDaniels have embraced


the water quality goals instead
of trying to fight them. Respon-
sible environmental stewardship
is very important to the family,"'
said Mr. Whalen.
Excess phosphorus can create
harmful algae blooms and lower
the critical oxygen content in
water. "Rainfall has 30 to 50 parts
per billion (ppb) of phosphorus
and the goal is that all water leav-
ing the McDaniel's property be at
50 ppb or lower," explained Mr.
Whalen. "Because of the low
rainfall, the system hasn't been
able to be fully tested, but, look-
ing at upstream water, quality,
early indications are good," he
added.
The McDaniels approached
reducing phosphorus levels in
their stormwater run-off through
a three-step process, according
to Mr. Whalen. First, by using in-
dividual farm field best manage-
ment practices (or BMPs) which
assist in the proper, management
of nutrients on each farm field.
Second, the farm field rainfall
run-off is pumped into a series
of ten cascading flow-through
wetland water quality treatment
areas. Lastly, the water flows
through a large detention' area
where the water is further cleaned
before leaving the ranch.
To achieve these results, the
family employed a team of equip-
ment operators running, full-
time on the water management
.project. The brothers all pitched
in as well They had to rent heavy
equipment, engage consultants
and purchase materials and
equipment. The family will also
be responsible for continual, per-
petual maintenance on the sys-
tem and levees. The investment
in the system by the McDaniel
family runs into the millions of.
dollars, McDaniel said.
"McDaniel Ranch has made
significant progress over the past
year in completing construction
of its stormwater management
system," said Robert Brown,
Regulation Department Director
of the South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
Ron Bergeron, Sr., a contractor
who has constructed numerous
stormwater treatment area levees
for the SFWMD's Everglades Res-
toration Program recently toured
the McDaniel Ranch project. "I've,
toured McDaniel Ranch from one
end to the other and have ob-
served all the improvements and
reservoirs. I'm very impressed,"
said Bergeron. "I don't think
I've ever seen any ranch go to
that degree of pre-treatment for,
their water and they are doing
it themselves, and .paying for it
themselves," he added.
The family also had to make
significant changes in their core
business.
"We had to convert from an
all-cattle operation to farming be-


cause when you have to put in an
expensive system and pump wa-
ter rather than letting gravity take
care of drainage naturally, it's very
costly," said Mr. McDaniel. "The
pumps use diesel fuel and every-
one knows what's happened to
fuel costs. Plus we laser-leveled
the fields, added wells and rock
roads." McDaniel explained that
these best management practices
are designed to address and man-
age the nutrients that can create
water quality problems, before,
they even enter the wetland pre-
treatment and detention areas.
Sugar cane was their initial
crop (other than the family's
citrus groves), but by 2005 they
began phasing out the, sugar
cane in favor of leasing land to
farmers to' grow beans, water-
melon, peppers, tomatoes and
cantaloupe. Using the land to
grow row crops meant an in-
creased need to manage fertiliza-
tion processes to minimize phos-
phorus levels.
"The McDaniels have also
developed best management
practices for the specific crops
they are farming," explained
Whalen. "For example, they go
out and take soil samples to find.
out the phosphorus levels in each
field, then they choose the ap-
propriate fertilizer based on that
information. They also use soil
traps and plant windbreaks be-
tween the rows 'of crops to mini-
mize soil erosion."
It's a cornpreheri,.i\ e approach
that chin',anrds meticulous, re-
cord-keeping. "Since about a year-
ago, each of our leaseholder farm-
ers'gets a big notebook with best
management practices that .spe-
cifically address their fields. They
turn in soil samples and get fer-,
tilizer analysis," said McDaniel,
explaining that the books also
cover information about crops,
aerial photos, pesticide informa-
tion and more. "It cost a lot to put
this information together, but it's
been well worth it," he added.
Following heavy rains, ex-
cess stormwater is pumped off
the agricultural fields into one of
the ten pre-treatment areas on
the farm. "The wetland pre-treat-
ment and detention areas the Mc-
Daniels have designed and built
will hold back 150 percent more
water than the SFWMD rules re-
quire,'" said Mr. Whalen. "In ad-
dition, to the pre-treatment areas,
they hold back water in hundreds
of culverts and gates upstream
within individual farm fields," he
added.
The ability to retain water
is important because it allows
sediment to settle and wetlands
plants to remove phosphorus
before the water enters environ-
mentally sensitive areas such as
the Big Cypress Swamp, accodrd-
ing to Whalen.
The new cascading wetland


pre-treatment areas trace the
natural wetlands footprint on the
ranch property. While the water
remains in the staging area, sedi-
ments settle and aquatic plants
remove phosphorus and pesti-
cide residues. When the water
levels rise high enough to reach
and flow through a discharge
pipe, it cascades to the next
stage where more impurities are
removed. Water is then released
into a large detention area for final
water quality treatment, before it
is discharged off-site. When that
water rises high enough, it will
flow into the North Feeder Canal,
then into Big Cypress Swamp and,
finally, out into the Everglades.
"Even though the entire 3000-
acre water management system
has, just become functionally
complete, the pre-treatment ar-
eas have been built in pieces,"
said Mr. Whalen. 'Between the
different pieces and the use of
best management practices, the
pounds of phosphorus in the wa-
ter have already been reduced by
50 to 75 percent."
The. system will also provide
environmental benefits. "A great
thing is that the land we reconfig-
ured for the pre-treatment areas
will also serve to re-hydrate our
largestandsofcypressheads," said
McDaniel. "And, we've designed
our detention area levees to carve
out the oak hammocks. The oaks
in these hammocks would be
killed \\ith the high water levels-
'. itin the d trnitr' areas. These
hammocks maintain the natural
beauty of the land, as well as pro-
vide habitat, for wildlife."
The McDaniels regard the
land as a part of their heritage,
and that reverence drives their
proactive approach to environ-
mental stewardship practices.
"The McDaniels haven't been
sitting back just hoping their
water quality will be okay," said
Mr. Whalen. "They've done ev-
erything required by permit :and
more. Theyare doing it because
it is the right thing to do. The
-family doesn't have to do many
of the things they've implement-
ed-like self-testing and paying
consultants to come out to do
audits, but they do it so they can
monitor and improve water qual-
ity," he added.
Though the stormwater man-
agement system is now func-
tional, there is still much to be
done, said McDaniel. A number
of months will be spent putting
the final touches on the existing
wetland treatment and detention
area dikes, water control gates
and weirs. And, with the future
of McDaniel Ranch ever-evolvin'g,
plans are in place to begin design
work on an additional 300-acre
wetland detention area west of
County Road 833.

GAS PRICES: I'm calling about the gas prices in Moore Haven
- I'm really concerned. Today's gas is $2.89 a gallon. It's cheaper in
Clewiston and even cheaper in Palm Beach County. I wanted to know
if anyone can do anything about it or if there is a number you can call.
Thank you.

WHAT NOW: Now that the power plant proposal is off the table
- the Public Service Commission decided it was going to cost the
consumers too much what kind of clean industry can we attract to
Glades County and how do we do it? I think we can all agree that we
would like to have some place for the kids to work, so they don't all

Reform don't eliminate No Fault insurance


By Alex Sink
Florida Chief Financial Officer
For 36 years, Floridians have
taken for granted that if they suf-
fer from injuries in a car accident,
the first $10,000 in medical and
related benefits are automati-
cally covered by the No-Fault law,
commonly referred to by the
medical benefits portion called
PIP, Personal Injury Protection. In
a few weeks when the law is set
to expire, Florida will enter a new
world.
I support the intent of the No-
Fault law, which is to ensure that
Floridians receive medical treat-
ment for injuries they suffer in an
auto accident without delay and
without the need to file a lawsuit
to recover costs relating to these
medical benefits. However, the
law, and especially the PIP provi-
sion of the law, has major flaws.
A culture of fraud and abuse has
grown around PIP, one that my
fraud investigators fight every day.
Medical costs are not managed
well in the PIP system. Claims for
PIP medical benefits should not
be used to support unnecessary
and costly lawsuits.
But the idea behind the law -
- the protection, of Floridians and
their assets -- is the centerpiece of


my role as your Chief Financial
Officer. Although I want to make
the No-Fault law and PIP work,
there is no indication that the leg-
islature will address this issue in
the upcoming special legislative
session. Therefore, with the im-
pending sunset of the law, I have
been working to increase Florid-
ians' awareness about life after
No-Fault.
Several important aspects of
auto insurance will be different
when the law goes away. I have
established an informative Web
site as an educational resource at
www.myfloridacfo.com/nofault/.
On the Web page, you will find
answers to questions about how
drivers can protect themselves in
a fault-based system and more.
Much has been reported about
changes in auto insurance rates
when No-Fault expires. However
I encourage you to look beyond
the cost savings and consider
what you and your -family need.
In particular, you may decide to
buy medical payments coverage
or increase your existing Unin-
sured Motorist or other coverage
to better protect you, which will
add some cost to your auto insur-
ance premium, even if PIP costs
are reduced.


I understand that the Legisla-
ture has been studying this issue
for years, and well-intentioned
members in the Senate and House
of Representatives have proposed
various No-Fault reform ideas.
The issue is complicated and the
parties hospitals, doctors, attor-
neys and insurance companies
- rarely agree on reforms that
Floridians need. The reality is that
all interested parties will have to
change the way they do business
in order to fix PIP.
Whether or not we reform No-
Fault or PIP, I believe the following
components should be included
in any system of medical benefits
for Floridians:
Florida should require man-
datory medical benefits insurance
for owners and operators of mo-
tor vehicles regardless of who is at
fault in the accident. This would
particularly help the 20 percent
of Floridians that currently lack
health insurance.
Medical benefits insurance
should include mandatory cost
containment provisions. For ex-
ample, fee schedules, which set
reimbursement rates for medi-
cal services and are common in
Medicare, Medicaid and workers'
compensation, have proven suc-


cessful for containing costs.
Florida must continue to
combat all forms of insurance
fraud and any insurance program
must include aggressive anti-fraud
measures. Critics of the No-Fault
system point to fraud as a reason
to allow it to sunset. Experience
in other states has shown us that
fraud happens in any system and
we must remain vigilant against
it.
One thing is clear before
No-Fault sunsets on October 1, all
Floridians should examine their
automobile insurance policies to
ensure they have adequate cov-
erage to protect themselves and
their assets. I encourage Florid-
ians to contact their, insurance
agents or companies in the next
six weeks to discuss what chang-
es will best suit their needs.
I call on the Governor and Leg-
islature to expand the call for the
upcoming Special Legislative Ses-
sion to include No-Fault and urge
the parties to work together with
the best interests of Floridians in.
mind. PIP can work. Compromise
is needed. A reformed No-Fault
law or a suitable replacement will
benefit Floridians directly by pro-
tecting families. Who can argue
with that?


Master Gardener program graduates Class of 2007


The end of summer is not the
usual time for a graduation, but
that's what's going on this week at
the Okeechobee Extension office.
Through our long hot summer,
six locals dedicated many hours
of study and practice learning the
ins and outs of Florida Friendly
gardening.
I'm pleased to announce that
we are recognizing our latest crop
of green thumbs, a half a dozen
volunteers that are beginning their
careers as Florida Master Garden-
ers (MG). An informal presenta-
tion will be made this Wednesday
with the help of our county's most
veteran Master Gardener, Judge
Bill Hendry.
Master Gardeners are volun-
teers that work with the Coop-
erative Extension Service, bring-
ing research-based information
about Florida Yards and gardens
to local residents. To become
Master Gardeners, these volun-
teers spent., more.than,60, hours, in
the classroom and then devoted
many more hours at home read-
ing and studying all about plants,,
soils, pests, and problem solving
methods.
This new class now begins to
pay-back the public for all their
new-found knowledge. They have
agreed to provide a minimum of
75 holirs of volunteer service dur-


ing the next year.
Our new graduates will start out
working along side local veterans.
Once they gain enough con-
fidence, we hope to expand our
MG clinic hours to another day of
the week. Throughout the next
year, they will also help our office
in other places as well, answering
gardening questions at commu-
nity events, taking on speaking in-
vitations and helping folks around
the Lake to get Green.
Here is our graduating class of
2007:
Kaye Cude is not your typical
Master Gardener. Kay has been.
gardening all her life. Kay had a
professional career as a teacher
/therapist, but since retiring from
the classroom, has lived the phi-
losophy that:to be happy you
must do something that you enjoy
that also helps others. She actual-
ly completed the Lee County MG
class in the early 1980's, but had
to temporarily retire from Master'
Gardening a few years back. As
our guidelines suggest when vol-
unteers wish to re-enlist, she de-
cided to retake the class to update
her skills. Kay is a recognized gar-
dening expert and is well known
in south Florida gardening circles
for her work with ECHO, the Herb
Society of America, and many dif-
ferent garden groups. She loves


teaching about herbs and spices
and how to grow and use what
you grow in the garden.
Pat Johnson has learned by
doing while helping Kaye Cude
with many of her gardening ac-
tivities. She decided to learn more
about horticulture in order to be a
better helper. She too is a retired
teacher, having traveled down the
road from Michigan many years
ago. Pat feels that sharing .new
knowledge with others will pro-
vide her with a great deal of per-
sonal satisfaction.
*'Lee Campbell is a long time
resident of Okeechobee and is a
self-professed backyard gardener.
She enjoys doing things to en-
courage wildlife and butterflies in
her Florida Yard. One of our class
exercises was to design a butterfly
garden suitable for our area; Lee
has already put much of her plan
in place. She gains a great deal
of satisfaction when .sharing her
knowledge with others.
Fran Everly moved to this
area from Lake Worth a few years
back, and now that she is retired,
has taken on her goal of complet-
ing the Master Gardener class that
she held for many years down in
Palm Beach. She. is focused on
discovering new methods of pest
management that involve least-
toxic strategies, and is working


on her perennial garden here in
Okeechobee. Learning new skills,
service and sharing are also key

Law related to accident injuries to change


Florida insurance law is chang-
ing, .and the changes will affect
everyone who drives or rides in
a car.
Under the current law, all
Florida motor vehicle owners are
required to purchase personal
injury insurance (called 'PIP),
which pays up to $10,000 for
your injuries in an auto accident.
Under the current "No Fault" law,
your insurance pays for your in-
juries, no matter who causes the
accident.
If the Legislature does not
make any changes before Oct.
1, then on Oct. 1, the "No Fault"
Law will expire .
For more information on just
how that will affect Floridians, I
went to online to the Web page
set up by Chief Financial Officer
Alex Sink at http://www.myflori-
dacfo.com/nofault/NoFault. asp.
This provided the following "fre-
quently asked questions."
Is No-Fault going away?
If the Legislature does not
make any changes, the Florida,
Motor Vehicle No-Fault Law will
expire on Oct. 1. The requirement
to, purchase PIP coverage will
also expire on Oct. 1. Beginning
Oct. 1, whether you are at fault or
not in an accident could make all
the difference as to which driver
is liable to pay for damages from
an automobile accident.
How do I protect myself as
a driver in a fault-based sys-
tem?
To make sure that you have
coverage in case you sustain any
injuries, you should consider
purchasing optional medical pay-
ments coverage from your auto
insurance company. Optional
medical payments coverage will
pay for medical bills incurred by
you, your family, and passengers

with Katrina Elsken
in your car who are injured in an
auto accident. You may also wish
to increase your bodily injury lia-
bility coverage (in case you injure
another person and are at fault)
and uninsured motorist cover-
age.
'I bought an auto insurance
policy that doesn't expire un-
til January. What happens to
my auto insurance policy on
October L.?
Regardless of when your auto
insurance policy is up for renew-
al, any accident occurring on or
after Oct. 1, will' be handled un-
der a fault-based system. Your in-
surance company may continue
to provide your PIP benefits or
may consider your PIP coverage
to be a form of optional medical
payments coverage for the re-
mainder of your 6-month policy.
It is important to note, how-
ever, that all damages from acci-
dents on or after October 1 will
be paid by the at-fault driver. If
your insurer initially pays your
damages and you are not at fault,
you may be expected to recover
these damages from the at-fault
driver.
What happens if I am at
fault in an accident, and my
medical expenses exceed the
limits of my medical pay-
ments? coverage?
Under an at-fault-based sys-
tem, the negligent party is respon-


sible for damages. Either you or
your health insurance will pay
for your medical expenses that
exceed the limits on any medical
payments coverage under your-
auto insurance policy.
What happens if I am in- .
jured by a negligent driver?
Do I have to go to court to get
my claims paid?
Possibly. Many times, auto
insurance companies will settle
based on an acknowledgement
of the at-fault driver in a particular
accident and benefits are paid ac-
cordingly. In some cases, there is
a dispute about who is at-fault or
to the extent of the damages and
court action may be necessary.
What happens if I am in-
jured by an at-fault driver
who does not have auto in-
surance?
Hopefully, you have pur-
chased optional medical pay-
ments coverage or uninsured
motorist coverage from your auto
insurance company. If you have,
your insurance company will
cover your medical expenses. If
you have not purchased any auto
insurance, however, you or your
health insurance will likely pay
for your medical bills. You may
of course sue the at-fault driver,
but uninsured motorists may not
have sufficient assets from which
to recover damages.
If I have health insurance
coverage, do I really need
auto insurance coverage as
well?
Yes. Purchasing auto insur-
ance coverage will help you pro-
tect yourself if you are at fault
and liable for an accident. Keep
in mind that your health insur-
ance may pay for your medical
treatments after an automobile

Pilot walks away from plane crash


Suffers only
lacerations after
accident

By Patty Brant
INI
Thursday, Aug. 23, was a
lucky day for 21-year-old pilot Ela
Bansal. She walked away from a
crash site, located just north of
Collins Slough, on Alico property
about a mile north of Keri Road.
Located in a rough area in the
south portion of Hendry County,
Ms. Bansal reportedly ran out of
fuel, causing the crash.
The crash ripped off the air-
plane's wheels, broke glass and
kicked up dirt into the cockpit,
but the pilot suffered only lacera-
tions to the forehead and a cut to
her nose.
She reportedly walked to an Al-
ico facility where emergency was
called in. She was initially being
taken to Hendry Regional Medical
Center, but was then diverted to
Lee Memorial Hospital, according,
to Hendry County Director of EMS
Randy Bengston.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said the pi-
lot, who is reportedly a citizen of
Afghanistan, told deputies at the
scene that she was the only oc-
cupant of the 1979 Cessna 152
airplane and flew from Kemper
Aviation, which is located in Palm

Unclaimed property auction Crime
Stoppers


raises $817,000 for schools


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink
announced earlier this month that
the state Property Bureau broke
previous unclaimed property auc-
tion records, raising more money
than previous auctions and break-
ing last year's attendance record.
"I am thankful to the Floridians
who bid on the wonderful items
up for auction and the members
of our Bureau who worked so
hard to make this event a suc-
cess," said CFO Sink, who over-
sees the Bureau. "Not only did we
raise a record-breaking $800,000
for Florida school children, we
also raised awareness about the
Bureau's mission of reuniting
SFloridians with their unclaimed
property."
During the auction, the Bu-
reau raised over $817,000 for the
State School Trust Fund from the
selling of 534 lots, or groups, of
items. The top selling item was a
3.3 ct. pear-shaped diamond that
sold for $22,000, $12,500 over the
reserve price. The highest-per-
centage performing lot contained
a Royal belt buckle and spurs be-
lieved to be from the last Empress
of France, Empress Eugenie, the
wife of Napoleon III. It sold for
$5,000, compared to the reserve
price of $400.
Among the other top selling
items at Saturday's auction were
autographed Hank Aaron and
Don Larsen baseballs that sold
for $450, an un-circulated 1896
$1 silver certificate that sold for.
$3,100, a 1934 $500 bill that sold


for $2,800, a five ct. blue-green
diamond that sold for $14,000
and a 17 ct. natural sapphire ring
that sold for $10,700. The auction
had approximately 450 registered
bidders -- a record number -- with
bidders from 15 states and one
from the United Kingdom.
The public interest in the auc-
tion also led thousands of Florid-
ians to the Unclaimed Property
Web site, www.fltreasurehunt.
org, to see if the state was hold-
ing their assets. While on a typi-
cal day, the Bureau's Web site
receives approximately 4,000 visi-
tors, more than 48,800 Floridians
visited the site the day before the
auction (Aug.3). In the first four
days of August, the Bureau re-
ceived claims from approximately
30,000 Floridians for over $13 mil-
lion in unclaimed property.
Floridians are encouraged
to search not only for their own
names, but also for the names of
their family members and ances-
tors. Many of the accounts held
by the state are in the name of
deceased relatives and it can be
difficult for the state to locate the
heirs of these accounts.
The Bureau receives items that
have been abandoned in safe
deposit boxes for at least three
years and spends up to two years
searching for the rightful owners
or heirs. The Bureau has had tre-
mendous success in finding own-
ers. In the past year alone, the
Bureau returned a record 255,000
accounts valued at more than
$171 million. But when owners or


heirs cannot be found, the items
are auctioned. While the pro-
ceeds from the auctioned items
are transferred to the state's Pub-
lic School Trust Fund, the money
is held in the original owners'
name and can be claimed for free
at any time.
Since the program's inception
46 years ago, the Bureau has suc-
cessfully reunited owners with
more than $1 billion in unclaimed
property. Over the past five years,
the program has returned more
than $546 million-- more than
half of all the money returned
since the .beginning of the pro-
gram-- due largely to aggressive
efforts b\ the program to contact
owners.
The Bureau is currently hold-
ing 7.8 million accounts, mostly
from dormant accounts in finan-
cial institutions, unclaimed utility
deposits, insurance benefits, pre-
mium refunds, un-cashed checks

Keynote speaker will


provide wake-up call


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Rufus E. Rose was the original
owner of what later became the
Disston St. Cloud Sugar Planta-
tion. In 1887, Hamilton Disston
bought one half interest in the
project that also included a large
peach orchard.
Later Mr. Rose worked with
was involved with the develop-
ment of Florida from the very be-
ginning, 1850, when the federal
government granted the fledgling
State of Florida title to 15 million
acres of "swamp and overflowed
lands "for drainage and reclama-
tion."
In 1881, a few days after Wil-
liam Bloxham's inauguration as
governor, Hamilton Disston (son
of the Philadelphia saw maker)
purchased four million acres
from the State for $1 million, 24
cents an acre.
It was described as "everything
south of Township 28 South and
east of Pease Creek" -- roughly ev-
erything south of Orlando!
Mr. Rose wrote a short his-
tory of that development, not on
a whim, but by request. He was
there and he knew.
The document, written in 1916,
was titled, The Swamp and Over-
flow Lands of Florida, the Disston
Drainage Company and the Diss-
ton Purchase, a Reminiscence by
R.E. Rose, State Chemist.
Mr. Rose wrote about: four
governors who piloted ,Florida
through this monumental project:
William D. Bloxham (two terms:
1881-1885 and 1897-1901), Wil-
liam S. Jennings (1901-1905), Na-
poleon B. Broward (1905-1909),
and Albert W Gilchrist (1909-
1913).
"Having often been asked to
prepare a short history of, and
the reasons for, the organization
:if ihe Dission Dr.,ir:ge Company
on January 25, 1881, to drain and
reclaim some 15 million acres of
'Swamp and Overflowed Lands'
in Florida and the subsequent pur-
chase by Hamilton Disston and
his associates of Philadelphia, of
four million acres of 'Swamp and
Overflowed Lands' for $1 million
on June.l, 1881,. the conditions
existing at the time and the rea-
sons for undertaking these great
projects ... 'having been closely
allied with various Disston enter-
prises, particularly the Drainage
Company, from their incipiency,"
wrote Mr. Rose in 1913.
.. there were few railroads"
and roadways except the old
Fernandina to Cedar Key road, no
railroad to Ocala, none to Tampa;
the mail went to Tamps by stage,
no railroads south of Jackson-,
ville," wrote Mr. Rose.
Mr. Rose wrote that Gov. Blox-
ham interested Hamilton Disston,
son of the saw maker in purchas-
ing four million acres. for $1 mil-
lion, or 25 cents an acre. That
money pulled the state back from
insolvency. Immediately, railroad
construction began and "extrava-
gant legislative grants were made
to .various proposed railroads
.., far in excess of that provided
by General Law ... 3,849 acres
for each mile of railroad built."
Subsequent legislatures granted
so much land to the proposed
railroads it was "far in excess of
the acreage owned by the State,"
wrote Mr. Rose: The State was,
naturally sued by the angry claim-
ants. The effect? The Internal Im-

provement Fund was bankrupt
again.
Gov. Bloxham again tried to
contract to have the reclamation
and drainage work completed,
but because of all the claims
against the land, no contractor
would start the work.
Governor Bloxham's succes-
sor, W.S. Jennings, took office in
1901 and he found, "the fund still
intact, though involved in litiga-
tion and hampered by injunctions
tying up all of their resources,
both land and money," wrote Mr.
Rose. Gov. Jennings continued
the legal battles successfully and
largely prevented the fund's col-
lapse.
Napoleon B. Broward (for
whom Broward County is
named) succeeded Jennings in
1905 with a strong "drainage of
the Everglades" and "release to
the people... of Lands covered by
various claims... generally legisla-
tive grants to railroads," Mr. Rose
wrote.
Gov Broward created the
"Board of Drainage Commission-
ers," comprised of the same state
officers composing the "Trust-
ees of the Internal Improvement
Fund" these were the members
of the new Drainage Commis-
sion, the document explains.
Two huge dredges were built;
the Okeechobee and the Ever-
glades, powerful enough to cut
through the rocky barrier that
"was an insurmountable ob-
struction to the drainage of the
Everglades," Mr. Rose wrote. The
rock formed a "lip" that kept wa-
ter from completely draining out
into the ocean and the Gulf of
Mexico. Their logs prove that at
no time has such work been ac-
complished so economically or
so fast.
The land that was being
drained had no value at all at the
time. But the experts of that time
estimated that the warm weath-
er, rainfall and fertile soil the
land would be worth $4 an acre
when the work was complete. As
the dredges worked deeper and
deeper into the Everglades, "the
lands behind the dredges were
freed of accumulated water, and
thus fitted for habitation and cul-
tivation," Mr. Rose wrote.
The large land owners fought
the drainage tax levied by the state
"and refused to pay their just pro-
portion of reclaiming their own
and other lands of the district.
By every known means the work
was delayed and hampered, the
surveys, levels and estimates of
the cost of the work exaggerated
and the worthlessness of the soil
argued by powerful interests, as-
sisted by the press," Mr; Rose ex-
plained.
But Gov. Broward persisted
and, aided by ex- governor Jen-
nings and attorney general W.H.
Ellis, reached settlement of the
law suits, which relieved the fund
of that burden.

ry, see next week's Recollections
column in this newspaper.

Suncoast For Kids presents awards


TAMPA Suncoast for Kids
Foundation, the Foundation fund-
ed by Suncoast Schools Federal
Credit Union, awarded 17 high
school seniors, one from each
public school in Glades, Hendry
and Lee Counties, scholarships of
$1,000 each.
I The student receiving this hon-
or from Glades County is Jalessa
Johnson (Moore Haven High
School). From Hendry County
are Robert Pass (Clewiston High
'School) and Shayla Wilson (La-
Belle High School). From Lee
County are Christopher Huff-
man (Cape Coral High School),
Luisa Buitrago (Cypress Lake
High School), Kyle Aryn Black
(Dunbar High School), Nicole
Reyes (Estero High School), Na-
thaniel Modglin (Fort Myers High
.School), Robert Edward Ebbert
(Ida Baker High School), Brittany
Guilford (LAMP), Whitney Stew-
art (Lehigh High School), Mon-
tanna Lynn Honc (Mariner High
School), Emily Teachout (North
Fort Myers High School), Hannah
Paladini (Riverdale High School),
Zachary Brindise (South Ft. Myers
High School), David Pearce (High
Tech Central), and Chrysan Lap-


pano (High Tech North).
"We are proud of the achieve-
ments of the students in our lo-
cal communities. They are being
rewarded for their commitment
and hard work in the classroom
and now have the opportunity to
pursue higher education through
our Suncoast for Kids Foundation
scholarship. program," said Greg
Pasanan, regional vice president
of Lee County.
The Suncoast for Kids Schol-
arship program awards a $1,000
scholarship annually to one stu-
dent in each public high school
in the 15 counties served. Since
2006, the Foundation has pro-
vided $220,000 to this program
to assist 220 students pursuing a
higher education.
"The Suncoast for Kids Foun-
dation is dedicated to helping
students in our community," said
Tom Dorety, president and CEO of
Suncoast Schools FCU. "Our mis-
sion is to promote the education,
health and emotional well being
of children in our communities
through scholarships and con-,
tributions to public schools, and
this is just one way we do that,'?
he adds.


Scholarship funds come from
Suncoast for Kids Foundation.
Monies for the Foundation are se-
cured in two ways; anytime a non-
member uses a Suncoast ATM
and five cents is donated from the
merchant's fees when members
use the Suncoast check card in
a signature transaction. Suncoast
for Kids is sponsored entirely by
the credit union, and 100 percent
of funds are contributed to orga-
nizations and initiatives that assist
children in the communities Sun-
coast Schools FCU serves.
Suncoast began providing an-
nual scholarships in 1990 and in
2005 selected the Consortium of
Education Foundations to admin-
ister the scholarship program. The
scholarship criteria established
,by Suncoast for Kids are based
on scholastic achievement, extra
curricular activities, and financial
need. A strong emphasis is placed
on financial need so that an op-
portunity can be given deserving
students who may not otherwise
be able to attend college. The
selection is based on the recom-
mendations of school guidance
counselors and other education
administrators.


Edison College uses results to improve


FORT MYERS August 27
- Edison. College's results from
the spring 2007 Community
College Survey of Student En-
gagement (CCSSE) indicate that
Edison College students exceed
both the Florida community col-
lege and national samples in
their engagement with academic
courses, programs, and services.
Since 2004, students report that
they have greatly increased, their
investment in time spent study-
ing, communicating and work-
ing with faculty and using college
support services.
"We participate in CCSSE to
continually improve the qual-
ity of education we offer our stu-
dents. Understanding where we
are now is critical to determining
where we should go and how we
can get there," says Dr. Kenneth
Walker, district president of Edi-
son College. "Quality education
shouldn't be only about inputs
and resources, such as how much
students already know when they
arrive or how 'selective' a college
is in admitting students. Quality
should be about the student ex-
perience -- about what we do to
engage our students, help them
achieve their educational goals,
and ultimately improve the qual-
ity of their lives through educa-
tion."
Research shows that the more
actively engaged students are --
with college faculty and staff, with
other students, and with the sub-


ject matter -- the more likely they
are to learn and to achieve their
academic goals. CCSSE's national
benchmarks of effective educa-
tiorial practice in community and
technical colleges address these
five indicators of student success:
1) Active and collaborative
learning (problem-solving and
team learning).
2) Student effort (spending
time studying).
3) Academic challenge (rising
to high expectations for learning
outcomes).
4) Student-faculty interaction
(communicating and working
with faculty).
5) Support for learners (taking
advantage of services such as skill
labs, advising, and mentoring).
Edison College is a baccalau-
reate degree-granting commu-
nity college with campuses' and
service centers in five counties,
the largest geographical commu-
nity college district in the state of
Florida. More than 15,000 credit-
seeking students attend Edison
College each year to earn two-
year degrees, four-year degrees,
or certifications. Founded in 1962,
Edison is the oldest institution
of higher learning in southwest
Florida.
The measured improvements
in student engagement follow the
completion of a series of college
initiatives aimed at improving
student success. For example, in
2005, the college implemented


the MyEdison portal, a technology
feature intended to improve com-
munication between faculty and
students. Also, that year, the col-
lege embarked upon a plan to de-
fine and assess general education
outcomes for students. In 2006
and 2007, the college continued
to build organizational structures
and processes to address improve-
ments to educational programs
and services systematically.
Also distinguishing *Edison
College, the institution received
baccalaureate degree granting
authority from the State of Florida
in 2004 and from the Southern As-
sociation of Colleges and Schools
(SACS) in 2005. In Summer 2006,
Edison College began to offer up-
per division classes. Designed for
working professionals, the Bach-
elor of Applied Science in Public
Safety Mandageren-ri is designed
as a path to advancement in the
public safety profession, both for
individuals and for the agencies
they serve. In 2007, the College
received permission from the
State of Florida to expand its bac-
calaureate program into Second-
ary Education (Math and Biolo-
gy), disciplines that need teachers
in regional K-12 systems. Thus,
Edison College has successfully
extended its mission of providing
high quality educational programs
and services to the next level.


Edison College professors receive award


FORT MYERS Edison Col-
lege Professors Dr. Williain Wil-
cox, professor of biology at the
Edison College Charlotte campus,
and Dr. Joan Van Glabek, profes-
sor of mathematics at the Edison
College Collier campus were re-
cently awarded the National In-
stitute of Staff and Organizational
Development (NISOD) Excellence
Awards for faculty.
NISOD is dedicated to the pro-
fessional development of faculty,
administrators, and staff; and to
the continued improvement of
teaching and learning, with the
ultimate goal of student success.
The first NISOD National Excel-
lence Awards were presented in
1989 to honor outstanding fac-
ulty.
"It is our collective belief that
both Bill and Joan represent the
high ideals of this prestigious
award. They have exemplified
their individual gifts and graces
as well as and a deep and abid-
ing commitment to excellence in
their service to the students of Edi-
son College and the community it
serves," said Dr. Robert Beeson,
district dean of instruction for the


Division of Arts and Sciences.
A professor with Edison for
more than 10 years, Dr. Wilcox
was chosen for this prestigious
award based on his scholarly ac-
tivities that have influenced and
enhanced learning and teaching,
according to his nomination. He
has a lengthy history of commu-
nity and public service, having
served ,on the boards of numer-
ous community organizations
and projects. In addition, Gover-
nor Bush appointed Dr., Wilcox to
the Babcock Ranch, Inc. Board of

ing commitment to environmen-
tal education.
As an Edison College faculty
member, Dr. Wilcox served on
the SACS Steering Committee,
the Technology Strategic Planning
Team, the Distance Learning Advi-
sory Committee, and the Curricu-
lum Committee.
Dr. Van Glabek was nominated
and selected for the NISOD award
based on her approaches to
teaching that influence, motivate
and inspire students to learn, ac-
cording to her nomination.
Dr. Van Glabek was voted the


Outstanding Collier Campus Fac-
ulty Member by the student body
in 2005-2006. She is a member of
the Student Learning Outcomes
Committee and was President of
the Collier Campus Faculty Senate
for the past five years.
"Dr. Van Glabek is a student
centered, learning centered pro-
fessor who consistently motivates
student to do their best, whether
teaching in the classroom or on-
line," said Dr. Henry Linck, Edison
College's Collier County campus
dean of arts and sciences. "She is
also a student advocate in that she
expects the College to provide stu-
dents with the support they need
outside the classroom, especially
in the tutoring arena."

than 700 community colleges
around the world that are NISOD

Citizens who own property will
be influenced by the rate given to
the fire department. According to
Bob Jones, the ISO was impressed
with the community's efforts and
gave them a rating of five. This
is an improvement since the last
survey in 1994. Most insurers use
this PPC rating to calculate insur-
ance premiums.


Moore Haven's home owners
insurance should be lower due
to the PPC rating of five. Citizens
need to call their insurance com-
panies and have the ISO rating
verified.
In other business, FEMA has
proposed a Hazard Mitigation
Grant program that will improve
the drainage system of the Ranch
Lake Estates subdivision. City
council members and the city
attorney discussed the scope of
work and approved the FEMA
project.


The Florida Department of En-
vironmental Protection has pro-
posed a legislative project grant
for the city's stormtiwater improve-
ment project. The grant proposal
will be-considered and further dis-
cussed by the city council.
The city of Moore Haven con-
tinues its progress with notifying
property owners of local ordi-
nance violations in its effort to
maintain safety for its residents
and improve the community's
appearance.

Supplemental Educational Services provides tutors to eligible students at Moore Haven El-
ementary School. A school must be in the Title I program to qualify for SES. This photo was
taken on Aug. 23 during a meeting among school district personnel, providers of tutors, and
parents.


Tutors

als. All have had required finger-
printing and background checks.
Sometimes local school district
employees become tutors.
School. district personnel will
assist parents with choosing from
a list of seven providers. Some of-


fer in-home tutoring, but only if
a parent or guardian is present.
Other providers 'will be on-site
after school; however, transpor-
tation issues will need to be re-
solved. On-line computer tutoring
can be available if the home has
a. phone connected to a land line.
All lessons will adhere to Sun-
shine State Standards.
Once eligibility and provider
selection has been determined,


a student learning plan will be
formed by the parent, student,
and teachers. Goals and assess-
ment will be written, tutor ses-
sions will be scheduled and prog-
ress reports will follow a time
line.
Please contact Kristi Hingson,
SES site director and MHES teach-
er at (863) 946-0737.

Muse
Continued From Page 1
Muse is well covered by
county services, according to Mr.
Richter. The fire department and
its equipment are good, the sher-
iff's patrol cars cruise through
the area, the ambulance station
is reassuring and a great school
named West Glades was built a
few years ago..
One issue that worries some
residents is the possibility of
county mandated garbage re-
moval. This could be a hardship
for older community members
since they may live on several
acres and have to haul or carry
heavy garbage to the end of their
driveway, or an area collection
site. Many residents haye long
narrow driveways that lead up
to their home sites and the large


garbage trucks would have trou-
ble turning around and may even
have to back up some distance.
The Muse Community Associa-
tion is not in favor of mandatory
garbage removal.
Another issue involves the
Last Chance Mine which is a
sand pit business that will op-
erate in neighboring Charlotte
County. The only roads going
in and out will be along west-
ern Glades County; specifically,
Kirby Thompson Road. If Hen-
dry County chooses to penalize
dump trucks for using its portion
of this road, then drivers may
choose to detour through Muse
by using C.R. 720, locally known
as Loblolly Bay Road.
The Muse Community Asso-
ciation is worried about wide,
heavy trucks on narrow roadways
that could damage the pavement,
cause sand and pebbles to strike


vehicles and increase accidents.
Mr. Richter mentioned that it
would be beneficial if the county
could have an agreement with
Last Chance Mine for the better-
ment of Glades County and the
Muse community.
Recently, Muse became a
Florida Fire Wise Community.
A Smokey the Bear fire danger
sign was constructed and erected
by the fire lookout tower in east
Muse. On any day a visitor or resi-
dent can see what the current fire
hazard is for the area. It was built
by Danny Callahan, Jimmy Cian-
frani and Joseph Richter.
The community association
welcomes new faces. They hold
farmers market days, chili nights,
breakfasts and yard sales. The
yearly membership fee is $5.

Scott A. Edmonds, President
and CEO of Chico's FAS, Inc, was
announced as Chairperson of the.
2007-08 United Way of Lee, Hen-
dry and Glades
campaign. As
volunteer Cam-
paign Chair, Ed- -
monds will over-
see the efforts
of more than
1,500'volunteers
as they work to
meet this year's Scott A.
fundraising goal Edwards
of $7.2 million.
"I am honored to be.the 2007-
2008 Campaign Chair for United
Way ofLee, Hendry, and Glades,"
said Mr. Edwards. "My wife and I
have lived in Lee County 'for over
22 years, and are proud to call
this wonderful community our
- home."


Mr. Edmond's affiliation with
United Way of Lee, Hendry and.
Glades goes back eight years
when he first ran the first United
Way workplace campaign at Chi-
co's. Each year he's gotten a little
more involved with United Way
until this year when he agreed to
take on the lead role for the 2007
campaign.
"It's a big job and a huge re-
sponsibility," he says, "but I'm
very proud to have been given
the opportunity. United Way is the
collective-power of people work-
ing toward 'long-term solutions
affecting our community. Just as
we focus on results in our work
here at Chico's, United Way is fo-
cusing on achieving measurable,
long-lasting results here in our
community."
Mr. Edmonds began with
Chico's in 1993 as the Operations


manager, moved to Chief Operat-
ing Officer in 1999, President in
2001 and in 2003 became Presi-
dent and CEO. When asked what
x-as t[he most imriportaint message
he could send to the communitnl
Edmonds replied. "Marn people
within our community have Lbeen
adversely affected by the slow-
down in the economy. This slow-
down has caused a dramatic in-
crease in the number of families
seeking assistance from United
Way supported programs and ini-
tiatives. For those companiesand
individuals who have generously
contributed to United Way in the
past, we need your help now
more than ever. For those who
have not contributed in the past,
you could be an integral part of
this very important endeavor. By
supporting United Way in help-
ing our neighbors receive the


assistance they. need; together,
we can make a difference in our
community."
All money raised in the United
Way campaign stays in the local
community to help support the
local human service network of
partner" agencies. In addition to
raising funds, United Way pro-
motes partnerships and collabo-
rations among agencies, helping
them to work together focusing
on issues and solutions that con-
tinue to improt e lives.
This year is the organization's
50th anniversary. The United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades has
been "the way the community
cares" since it was established in
1957.
For more information please
call United Way of Lee, Hendry
and Glades at (239) 433-2000 or

S i rS _. ports News in Brief


Submitted photo


The Moore Haven High School Terriers football team are off to a good start.


Terriers defeated Miami NW Christian


The Moore Haven Terriers de-
feated Miami Northwest Christian
40-6 last Friday in the Kickoff Clas-
sic in Miami.
Running back Jerrell Smith
rushed five times for 131 yards
and scored three rushing touch-
downs. Smith also scored a
touchdown on a kickoff return.
Terriers' senior quarterback
Antwonne McCloud rushed for 58


yards and a touchdown and com-
pleted three passes for 30 yards.
Junior Dalton Britt, who plays
several positions for Moore Ha-
ven, also scored a touchdown
and contributed several tackles
on defense.
Offensively, Moore Haven
scored on every drive but one and
never punted in the game. The
defense held Miami Northwest


Christian to under 100 yards.
"I was very pleased with the
way our kids competed on Fri-
day," said Head Coach Jason
Bond. "Northwest Christian had
some good athletes but the dif-
ference in the game was our con-
ditioning. We were able to play
hard for 48 minutes and never let
up."
Moore Haven's next game will


be on Sept. 7 at Ft. Myers Gateway
Charter. Last May, the Terriers lost
to Gateway Charter in the spring
game, but Coach Bond thinks the
rematch will be different. "I think
our kids are in better shape than
they were in the spring and hope-
fully we can show that we are a
much improved team," Coach
Bond said.


Lightning short circuits Clewiston's Kickoff Classic


The Tigers' Kickoff Classic
against the reigning Class 2B
state champions, the Pahokee
Blue Devils was knocked out by
a lightning storm Friday night
at Cane Field The contest was
halted with 1:39 remaining in the
first quarter with the Blue Devils
on top 6-0. The field had been
soaked by a 2 inch downpour
just before kickoff, followed by a
steady drizzle.
Pahokee appears to be fully
prepared to compete for what
would be their fourth consecu-
tive state title. On their first pos-


session, the Blue Devils scored on
a 21-yard post pattern with quar-
terback Anthony Sheppard con-
necting with flanker Antavious
Wilson. Sheppard completed 3
passes on 5 attempts for a total
of 70 yards. The Blue Devils had
driven deep into Clewiston terri-
tory on their next offensive series,
when officials sent, the squads
to the locker rooms due to the
weather. The contest was called
after a one-hour delay.
Tiger Head Coach Larry An-
tonacci was optimistic about
what he saw during the short-


ened event.
"We're young and we've got
some work to do. Our kids made
some mental mistake and we
expected that. We've got a lot of
work ahead of us with our defen-
sive secondary," Coach Antonac-
ci said. "We just didn't want to
take a chance tonight on getting
any of the kids hurt on a wet and
slippery field."
Clewiston, Class 2Arunner-ups
last season with a 13-1 record, is
in a rebuilding year having lost 19
seniors. This year, the 28 player


squad has 16 seniors. However,
five of the seniors are playing their
first season of varsity ball.
The Tigers open their regular
season this Friday at Cane Field
as they host the Plantation Ameri-
can Heritage Patriots. Coach By-
ron Walker always fields a well-
coached squad in this non-district
rivalry.
The Blue Devils will get a huge
early season test as they host
Class 6A Palm Beach Gardens at
Lair Field. Game time for both
contests is 7:30 p.m.

Ranger Boats honors Northlake marine


FLIPPIN, Ark. Northlake Ma-
rine in Moore Haven., along with
owner Ellis Cole, was recognized
for being part of an elite group of
Ranger Boats' dealers to receive
the coveted 5-Star Service Award
in each of the first five years of the
award's existence. To mark the oc-
casion, Cole accepted the award
on Northlake Marine's behalf from
Ranger Boats founder Forrest
Wood, Ranger President Randy
Hopper and Vice President Keith
Daffron during the recent dealer
conference in Branson, Mo.


The 5-Star Award, awarded to
select dealerships throughout the
nation each year, is the highest
ranking bestowed on any Ranger
dealership. The award, which
strives to recognize dealers who
provide outstanding customer
service, takes many factors into
consideration. Among those are
Customer Satisfaction Index (CSI)
scores of over 90 percent, as well
as a minimum 30 percent market
share within their trade area.
"When a dealership is award-


ed the 5-Star Service Award, it's
more than just a way for us to pat
them on the back," said Ranger
Boats President Randy Hopper.
"The 5-Star Service Award is
something that customers can
look to, knowing that the dealer-
ship has been recognized for its
strong commitment to Ranger,
owners. It's a symbol of excel-
lence and we're proud of the way
Northlake Marine continues to
represent themselves, their cus-
tomers and Ranger Boats."

Farm Bill Sodsaver provision needed now


BISMARCK, N.D. News
in the Dakotas is mixed for wa-
terfowl hunters. Late-summer
habitat conditions look good in
Many breeding areas in the Dako-
tas The bad news is many areas
face imminent destruction. Ducks
Unlimited is asking duck hunters
across the country for help.
"We've seen good brood num-
bers throughout the Missouri Co-
teau in North Dakota, but we also
see native grasslands converted
to cropland. This is bad news for
future duck production," said Dr.
Scott Stephens, director of con-
servation planning for Ducks Un-
limited's (DU) Great Plains. Office.
Increased crop .prices driven
by demand for corn for ethanol
production put even greater pres-
sure on native grasslands, which
produce millions of the conti-
nent's ducks.
"We have a chance to protect
these native grasslands through
the farm bill," said Scott McLeod,
DU's farm bill lead for the Great
Plains Regional Office. "The Sen-
ate will draft its version of the
farm bill in September.
Mr. McLeod says DU and many


other conservation groups want a
strong Sodsaver provision in the
farm bill to prevent further loss of
native grasslands."
Sodsaver would eliminate all
federal payments for crops plant-
ed on land with no previous crop-
ping hiskt'.r\ Landowners could
still farm native grasslands, but at
their own risk with no federal as-
sistance.
Sodsaver would also level the
economic playing field between
ranchers and crop producers and
provide substantial savings to U.S.
taxpayers by reducing subsidy
and disaster payments. '
"Given the strong waterfowl-
ing tradition in the South, it's
important that all southern duck
hunters understand what's at
stake with Sodsaver. Now is the
time to be heard loud and clear,"
Mr. McLeod said.
During August, senators are
back in their respective states,
giving constituents a great oppor-
tunity to voice their support for,
Sodsaver.
The Prairie Pothole Region an-
nually produces nearly three out
of every four ducks harvested


in the South. If Sodsaver is not
included in the. 2007 farm bill,
it could have dire effects on the
continent's duck populations and
hunting in the South.
"We are very concerned that
without a Sodsaver provision,.
30-day seasons may become the
norm and closed seasons a real
possibility over the next decade,
which is something none of us
are interested in seeing," Mr. Ste-
phens said.
To find your Senator's state
offices go to: huip. \'%N sseriate

Sodsaver go to: www.ducks.org/

With more than a million sup-
porters, Ducks Unlimited is the
world's largest and most effective
wetland and waterfowl conser-
vation organization with almost
12 million acres conserved. The
United States alone has lost more
than half of its original wetlands
nature's most productive eco-
system and continues to lose
more than 80,000 wetland acres
each year.

The word 'Homophobia'


- What is in a name?


By Jackie Miller
Minister, First Christian Church
When logical thinking breaks
down or is non-existent many
will resort to "name-calling." Our
society has coined a word that it
uses to describe those who be-
lieve homosexuality to be wrong
and sinful. The word is "ho-
mophobia."
The word "homophobia"
does not appear in most standard
English dictionaries. However,
"hom" means "alike or the same"
and "phobia" is an "exaggerated
illogical fear." Taking those word
parts to form a definition, those


who suffer from "homophobia"
must have an exaggerated, illogi-
cal, or irrational fear of those who
practice homosexuality...that is
those who engage in sexual prac-
tices with members of the same
sex.
"Homophobia" is a ."buzz
word"... a "label" attached to
members of our society who be-
lieve homosexual practices to be
sinful. Hence, the very word "ho-
mophobia" declares that those
who oppose this sinful practice
have a "mental disorder"... a
phobia ... an irrational fear ... a
problem!
Actually, Christians oppose


homosexual practices because
they are sinful. "If a man also lie
with mankind, as he lieth with a
woman, both of them have com-
mitted an abomination..." (Leviti-
cus 20:13). "For this cause God
gave them up unto vile affections:
for even their women did change
the natural use into that which
is against nature: and likewise
also the men leaving the natural
use of the woman, burned in
their lust one toward another ..."
(Romans 1:26-27). "They which
commit such things are worthy of
death..." (Romans 1:32).
The Christian does not oppose
sin because he is irrational in his


thinking. The truth is that thinking
based on scripture is the most ra-
tional kind!
Those who oppose sin are not
manifesting some kind of "pho-
bia." Those who oppose drinking
are not suffering from "bar-pho-
bia!" Those who oppose illicit
sexual activity are not victims
of "massage parlor phobia".. .or
"x-rated movie phobia." Society
is wrong on this matter...it is not
some kind of "phobia" when
people choose to stay away from
sin ... or to not practice sin...to not
get involved in it...to want no part
of it!
People are not "homopho-


bic" when they oppose our pub-
lic schools adopting the new
"multi-cultural curriculum," a
curriculum that teaches first grad-
ers to view perverted lifestyles as
normal. A Newsweek article dis-
closes book titles being used now
in first grade classrooms in New
York City. "Daddy's Roommate,"
'Heather Has Two Mommies,"
and "Gloria Goes to Gay Pride."
The last one is about a little girl
named Gloria who faces bigotry
for marching in a parade with her
lesbian mothers!
Larry Kramer (a strong gay ac-
tivist) has said, "I don't care what
someone's version of the Bible


says. You can't say we're against
God's will. There are too many of
us ... 25 million!"
Despite voices to the con-
trary, ridicule and name calling
... homosexual practices are con-
demned under both the old and
new laws. The Bible is too clear
on this matter for any one to be
mistaken.
It is not now or never has been
"homophobic" (or irrational fear)
to present the Bible's teaching
that homosexual practices are
sinful. Nor is it "homophobia"
to encourage those engaging in
such practices to repent!


What we learn shows up in the most unexpected of places


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I walk our dog in the
morning, the yellow school bus-
es have returned to the roads that


used to be less
traveled. There
are also cars


with students ,.,
now on the
way to school,
and one of my
neighbors and I
pass as she ac- muel S.
companies her SamuelS.
youngster to Thomas
school as'the year has begun.
Some of the students I've en-
countered are happy to return
to school, others would like to
continue with their summer va-
cations, all are back in the school
routines. The school year is under
way and it is time once more to


learn "all of that stuff" that is re-
quired even if the need isn't obvi-
ous at the moment. Lots of learn-
ing takes place when there is no
test or grade; sportsmanship, or
social skills, or getting along with
difficult people.
When I hear students asking
"Why do we have to learn that?"
my answer is that "You -never
know when you're going to need
it!" Aside from the things that I
have learned to apply directly,
there is also transfer of learning
that happens along the way. We
put to work what we learn in
one setting and make it serve us
somewhere else.
One summer I had a job in a
piano store. I learned that a piano
is really a system of 88 levers,
learned to take them apart in se-
quence, learned to lay the pieces
in the order in which they came
off so that I would know how to
re-assemble them, learned about


observing what the pedals did to
change the sound. Later I found
that my knowledge about pianos
helped me when I was working
on a motor, or putting together
a church service, or listening to
someone who really didn't know
what was bothering them in a
chaotic life; and trying to see or-
der and sequences.
I learned from a sea captain
that when the boat was in port,
you did maintenance and repairs
that seemed small, so that when
you were at sea and depended
on machinery and equipment, it
didn't break down. It was a lesson
in self-discipline and "redeeming
the time" that transferred into
making use of spare moments to
plan for a sermon, or scan a mag-
azine when there was no time to
read all of it, or to bring some-
thing to work on while waiting
for an appointment. In fact, I'm
sure that anything learned can be


put to use in some way, at some
time and for some purpose.
Jesus took what people knew
about the weather; seeing clouds
and knowing it is going to rain or
feeling the south wind and know-
ing it is going to be hot(Luke
12:54ff) and then told them to read
the signs of their current time and
getting their life in order. Parables
were used to teach about new
things by things already known;
Jesus talked about farmers and
bushes growing, about sheep
and watching to protect one's
house, and then applying what
was known to greater truths.
I remember one visit to a fam-
ily, walking in as their washing
machine was in pieces on the
floor. The father, a lawyer, and I


spent part of the afternoon reas-
sembling it and getting it to work
once more. A year went by, and I
returned to the office late one af-
ternoon to find an "urgent" mes-
sage to contact that family. I knew
they had a daughter living out of
town; perhaps something had
happened. There was a middle
child who was always in trouble
-- perhaps he had done some-
thing serious this time. The par-
ents used to have their moments;
could it be that something major
had come between them?
Instead of calling, I drove over,
knocked on the door, and asked
"What is it, Marge?" when the
mother of the family answered.
She answered simply "The wash-
ing machine broke again!"


Relief came.
Of all of the emergencies that
might have come, something I
had learned at another time and
in another place was what had
been called for. I learned about at-
tacking problems systematically:,
about putting things in a right or-
der, about being disciplined in my
approach to seeing why things
didn't work, about helping peo-
ple in unexpected ways. I "min-
istered" by helping with an unex-
pected crisis that came by using
something learned in other ways,
in other places, at other times, for
other reasons. Nothing is wasted
in God's plans for us'; He was do-
ing ecology in all sorts of ways
long before we ever noticed!

Are Mondays



always a drag?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Monday: The word itself
evokes feelings of trepidation
within the hearts of many, and
for good reason.
Monday is the
first day of the
work week for
most of us -- the
day we go back
on the clock -
- the day when ..
the project we .,
so joyfully left on John
Friday is waiting Hicks
for us -- along
with other things that have seem
to mysteriously appeared while
we were away. With Monday,
reality hits us and the weekend
memory fades quickly away.
Do a web search on Mondays
and you'll get everything from
Black Monday to things like,
"Monday, The Day That Sunday
Threw Up." It's not just that Mon-
days can be depressing, although
there's certainly evidence for that.
Monday can be deadly. A study
showed that more strokes take
place on Monday than on any
'other day of the week it's a high
stress day. Add to this Monday
madness that chirpy person in
your office that greets you with
that annoyingly chipper *voice.
No one should be that happy on
Monday morning.
Monday can be a drag, but not
if we try something so simple, it's
brilliant. In the midst of the deep
dark abyss of Mondays, comes
a crusade to reclaim Mondays.
Check out "DoOneNiceThing.
Com." It is a website that was
founded in 2005 by Debbie Tenzer
who started looking for nice things
to do every Monday to counter
the "Monday Blues", and became
hooked. DoOneNiceThing.com
began sending out e-mails twice
a month to subscribers detailing
opportunities for them to make.
nice. In just a couple of years, the
response has been overwhelming
with subscribers residing in 43 dif-
ferent countries. According to the
site, some of the results of D.O.N.T
include donations of school sup-


plies for children in Afghanistan,
care packages sent to U.S. sol-
diers, subscribers registering as
organ donors, donations made to
homeless shelters and letters of
encouragement sent to hospital-
ized children around the world.
Here is how they introduce
themselves: "Are Mondays tough?
Sure. Feel better by doing at least
one nice thing for someone to
start the new week right. One nice
thing every Monday. Join us. Be-
come a Nice-oholic: We'll tell you
how, and who else is doing nice
things. Helping feels good. You
could get hooked! A uniter, not
a divider, we embrace everyone.
Working together, it's amazing
what we can achieve!"
"Do One Nice Thing" (or
D.O.N.T for short) was designed
to help people feel better by en-
couraging them to do at least one
nice thing for someone to start
the week out right. It's really a'
simple concept if you think about
it. Replace the Monday doldrums
with a Monday mission to do
something completely selfless for,
someone else.
People who embrace' the
concept become "Nice-oholics"
- people for whom doing nice
things becomes a weekly habit.
Some even D.O.N.T more than
once a week. Like their web 'site
states: "warning: doing one nice
thing can be habit-forming. Pro-
ceed at your own risk!"
Of course, D.O.N.T isn't a new
concept. It has been around for
thousands of year. We've always
been called to look out for others,
even on Mondays when our en-
ergy and outlook can be at a low
ebb. Check the Scriptures. "Do to
others as you would have them
do to you." (Matt. 7:12) "Look not
only to your own interests, but
also the interests of others" (Phil.
2:3-4) The writer of Hebrews lays
it out like this: "Do 'not neglect to
do good and to share what you
have, for such sacrifices are pleas-
ing to God" (Hebrews 13:16).
I invite you to join me next
Monday in D.O.N.T for someone.
Who knows, it might be habit
forming! It certainly is scriptural!

Miniature horses on the road to gaining popularity


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
"I have 20 miniature horses
here. How did it start? I have. al-
ways ridden and loved horses.
Ten or 12 years ago, I broke my
leg in a fall off the back porch step
and one year later, almost to the
day, I broke same leg again! I de-
cided then that the kind of riding
I was used to doing wasn't such
a good idea any more, yet I didn't
want to give up horses. My hus-
band, Durwin gave me my first
mini as a birthday present. That
was ten or twelve years ago. I've
had miniature horses ever since,"
said Pat Tyner, owner of Twelve
Oaks Minis in Basinger.
There, tucked in among huge
oak trees is a full-scale horse
farm, complete with a hot walker


Backyard

Barnyard

- all in scale to the 20 little horses
who live there -- right down to a
horse trailer built to hold five min-
iature horses. Signs on the yard
fence tell you to "Look out for the
dog that patrols three days a week
-- guess which days", "Mini cross-
ing", "Grandchildren crossing"
and others along the same vein.
Miniature horses have in-
creased in popularity and now
the American Miniature Horse
Association,(AMHA), founded in
1978, has registered 114,000 min-
iature horses.
"Colorful myths abound about
the origin of the miniature horse.
Contemporary historians tend to


support the breed as a derivative
of many sources. In pre-historic
times, small horse breeds were
likely the products of surviving
harsh natural climates and lim-
ited feed. In addition to the pre-
historic evidence of small equids,
it is speculated that the miniature
horse is a result of nearly 400
years of selective breeding of
many extracts.
"The first mention of a small
horse being imported to the
United States was in 1888; and
it appears, there was little public
awareness of true miniatures dur-
ing the year preceding 1960. It is
believed that the American Min-
iature horse utilized the blood of
the English and Dutch mine hors-
es brought to this country in the
19th century and used in some
Appalachian coal mines as late


Heritage Trail guidebook published


TALLAHASSEE Secretary
of State Kurt S. Browning an-
nounced last week the release of
the Florida Native American Heri-
tage Trail guidebook. The 36 page
booklet is the newest addition to
the Florida Heritage Trail series,
which includes the Florida World
War II Heritage Trail, the Florida
Cuban Heritage Trail and the Flor-
ida Black Heritage Trail, the Flori-
da Jewish Heritage Trail, and the
Florida Women's Heritage Trail.
"We are pleased and proud to
present the Florida Native Ameri-
can Heritage Trail, a booklet that
highlights the heritage and culture
of Florida's Native Americans,"
said Secretary Browning. "The
information contained in this
booklet is a valuable educational
resource that will enhance our
knowledge and understanding of


Florida's earliest people and their
legacy."
The Florida Native American
Heritage Trail booklet honors
Florida's Native American cul-
tures, both past and present,
by providing in-depth informa-
tion for residents and visitors. In
text and photos, the booklet de-
scribes over 100 sites throughout
the state where ancient Florida
Native Americans left evidence
of their cultures and where con-
temporary Native Americans
thrive and exhibit their cultures.
The booklet includes a synopsis
of the more than 10,000, years of
Native American presence and
significance in Florida. Sidebars'
of special interest topics and bi-
ographies of individuals impor-
tant to Florida's Native American
heritage are included.


The Trail of Florida's Indian
Heritage, Inc. (formerly Trail of
the Lost Tribes), a non-profit or-
ganization promoting awareness
and preservation of Florida's an-
cient cultures, produced the Flori-
da Native American Heritage Trail
booklet with a grant from the Divi-
sion of Historical Resources. The
Florida Department of State will
make copies of the booklet avail-
able to public libraries through-
out the state and regional offices
of the Florida Public Archaeology
Network. Additional funding from
the Frank E. Duckwall Founda-
tion will allow each of Florida's
approximately 3,500 public and
private elementary schools to re-
ceive a copy of the publication.
Copies of the publication may be
purchased online at www.flori-
dashistoryshop.com.


Grazing management school scheduled


Grazing management is the
manipulation of livestock grazing
to obtain defined outputs of live-
stock products. It involves careful
management of both pasture and
livestock resources to meet de-
sired objectives. The South Flor-
ida Beef-Forage Program will be
holding the Second Annual Graz-
ing Management School Sept. 5
and 6, beginning with classroom
work in Arcadia the first day. This
course is offered in two day ses-
,sions. The theories ,of grazing
management concepts and meth-
ods are discussed in a classroom
setting during the first day, and
concepts taught are supported by


Ma


practical applications in the field
during the second day tour to se-
lected ranches in the area and the
Ona Range Cattle Research and
Education Center.
This course is sponsored
by The South Florida Beef-For-
age Program of the University
of Florida, Cooperative Exten-
sion Service. It is conducted with
the volunteer assistance of area
livestock pi.toduces and r llied
Industries. It represents separa-
tion -if the original, Forage a;nd
Pasture Management School into
subject components that can be
taught in a couple of days, and is
a more advanced course than the


recently offered Grazing Manage-
ment 101. It is part of a continu-
ing multi-County education effort
to help South-Central Florida pro-
ducers raise and market higher
quality beef cattle, per cow, per
acre, profitably. .
This is the second annual
"Grazing Management School,"
Registration fee for this school is
$80. Registration forms and pro-
gram brochures can be obtained
at the ,UF/IFAS/Hendry County
Extension Service by contacting
Sonja Crawford or Glenn Schaibly
at (863) 674-4092 or (863) 983-

Wooden Toys

Wooden toys are timeless classics, probably because
they're as much fun to make and give as they are to
play with. This trio of wooden toys-an old-fash-
ioned car, a biplane and a steamboat-will become
the pride of any child.
Made primarily of scrap lumber, do-it-yourselfers
simply trace the pattern onto wood, cut out and
assemble. The largest of the toys, the steamboat, is
12 inches long. The plan includes complete step-by-
step instructions with photos, full-size traceable pat-
terns and more.

Wooden Toys plan (No. 632)... $8.95

Wooden Toys Package (No. C125)
Three projects incl. 632 ... $19.95

Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)


To order, circle item(s),

clip & send w/ check to:


Please be sure to

include your name,


U-Bild Features address and the name of
3800 Oceanic Dr., Ste. 107 this newspaper. Allow
Oceanside, CA 92056 1-2 weeks for delivery.

Trees suffer during prolonged drought


Drought continues to straddle
much of the nation, especially in
the Southeast. The U.S. Seasonal
Drought Outlook calls for some
improvement to the severe to ex-
treme drought affecting the Gulf
Coast and parts of the Southeast,
though drought conditions may
expand into the lower Midwest.
What can homeowners do to
keep their trees healthy during
hotter, drier summer months?
"While it's impossible to keep
every tree in good health in times
of severe drought, taking a proac-
tive approach for a prized or sen-
timental tree can support its good
health," recommended Tchukki
Andersen, staff arborist with the
Tree Care Industry Association. "A
plan that is supported with good
cultural practices, proactive moni-
toring for pests and disease, and
response to warning signs is more
likely to survive," she said.
Silent Suffering
A tree's first damage from
drought occurs beneath the soil.
line in the form of root damage,
long before any outward signs of
trouble. After a tree's unsuccess-
ful attempts to conserve water by
closing stomates, feeder roots die
back, sometimes so drastically
that the tree is unable to take up
enough water to support itself. In
the worst case, a healthy looking
tree collapses without much warn-
ing. More often, though, the signs
of stress are much less dramatic.
"Radial growth slows," ex-





Public Issues
Forum

of the day are debated some-
times vigorously.


plained Mr. Andersen. "Leaves
are undersized and wilt, yellow,
curl, or crinkle, will be marginally
scorched, or even turn brown and
fall. Emergent shoots are short. In
an effort to right the imbalance
caused by root-loss, crown die-
back or a general thinning of the
canopy occurs."
Opportunistic pests
and diseases
That's when "opportunistic"
pests make their move. Boring in-
sects are thought to be drawn by
the odors and acoustic signals of
stressed trees. The sound of water
columns breaking cues the borer
to invade the tree and lay eggs.
Andersen recommends taking
preventative action by applying
treatment by spray or injection to
protect prized or important trees
from borers because, "by the time
we realize the tree is stressed, it's
been heavily riddled and girdled."
Another danger to stressed
trees is fungus, which makes ini-
tial contact with surface roots.
Andersen notes that when a
chemical change in the tree sig-
nals a weakened state, the fungus
penetrates the bark, wood, and
cambial zone with fan-like, leath-
ery clumps, cutting off the water
supply to the tree.
While all trees are at risk dur-
ing long period of drought, some
are more prone to its effects. New
transplants are highly vulnerable
to drought stress, and supplemen-


tal watering for the first few years
of establishment is necessary, to
the extent that it's allowed. But
even mature trees are suffering.
Watering trees deeply with
soaker hoses or irrigation systems
-- as opposed to brief, surface wa-
tering helps sustain trees. But
it's very difficult to do much for
a large tree because of the mas-
sive amounts of water it needs.
With so many trees affected, Mr.
Andersen recommends water-
ing only those trees that you can
help. How much water a home
landscape needs depends upon
its soil, sun and shade exposure,
plant types, irrigation system and
local climate. How much water
trees require depends, upon the
type of tree. Applying the right
amount of water, based on the lo-
cal weather and, the tree's actual
need, is the key to using water ef-
ficiently. But homeowners often
over-water their lawns, which in
turn surpasses a tree's real needs.
Drought exacerbates matters
for trees already under stress, like
those on dry slopes, surrounded
by pavement, or improperly plant-
ed. In landscape situations, con-
sider taking action, like moving
smaller trees to a better location,
alleviating compaction, or replac-
ing moisture-draining lawn with a
layer of mulch. Pine needles or a
two- to three- inch layer of com-
post will help trees in maintaining
moisture.
The aftereffects of the current
drought will likely ripple for the


next three to five years, with the
strongest trees surviving. Trees
have developed their own mecha-
nisms for coping with these cycles,
but some trees are on the brink of
survival and could go either way.
If it means the difference between
keeping a tree around for your
lifetime or losing it in the next five
years," Mr. Andersen said, "it's
worth doing something about."
What can you do?
If you would like some pro-
fessional help in creating a safer,
more fire-resistant landscape,
consult a professional arborist.
Contact the Tree Care Industry
Association (TCIA), a 69-year-old
public and professional resource

panies who recognize stringent
safety and performance standards

New rules for


waterfowl season


Waterfowl hunters in South
Florida's storm water treatment
areas will encounter new rules
for the 2007-08 hunting season,
according to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). Area 2, a 9,195-acre
tract in Palm Beach County, will
open for the first time this year.
Only a morning hunt will be al-
lowed there, for which the FWC
will issue 25 permits. The FWC.
will use a random-selection pro-
cess to distribute un-issued and
forfeited permits. Walk-ins will
not be allowed to replace hunt-
ers as they leave.
As usual, areas 1, 3/4 and
5 will be open for the special
September duck season, both
phases of the waterfowl and
coot seasons, and the youth wa-
terfowl hunt.
Area 1W is a 6,670-acre con-
structed wetland in Western
Palm Beach County. Area 3/4
is a 16,772-acre constructed
wetland at the Palm Beach/Bro-
ward County line and Area 5 is a
5,120-acre constructed wetland
in eastern Hendry County
The number of permits per
hunt increased this year from 25
to 40 on Area 5 and from 50 to


60 on Area 3/4.
Last year, more than 4,500
hunters participated in water-
fowl season on those areas.
Check-in and check-out
times and shooting hours are
different this year, as are check
station procedures.In addition,
only one vehicle per permit is al-
lowed, except during the youth
hunt, when two vehicles per
permit are allowed.
There will be a morning hunt
and an afternoon hunt on all ar-
eas except Area 2.
Permits will become avail-
able at 10 a.m. Aug. 28. Prospec-
tive hunters, who must com-
plete the storm water treatment
area worksheets prior to the
application, can apply at any tax
collector's office, call (888) 247-
4356 toll-free, or apply online
at www.wildlifelicense.com/fl.
Worksheets are available at this
link: MyFWC.com/hunting/wa-
terfowlWrkshts.html.
The rules are explained in
brochures about each area,
which are available online un-
der the individual WMA regula-
tions and maps link at MyFWC.
