Renovations, transportation, workshops


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- County
commissioners covered sev-
eral brief, but important agenda
items at the county meeting, May
13.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) remind-
ed the county that the closing of
Bee Branch Bridge in the Muse
community will begin June 4 af-
ter school is out.
Replacement of the bridge
will take up most of the summer,
but will be complete right before
the opening of the new school


year. Public safety director, Bob
Jones received prior approval to
install the Muse Volunteer Fire
Department building with tem-
porary full time staff in order to
ensure that Muse residents, west
of the bridge closure, will have
adequate coverage from EMS/
rescue.
A request to increase the
speed limit on Birchwood from
35 m.p.h. to 45 m.p.h. has been
denied. The FDOT engineers
failed to recommend an increase
in speed limit, and it was noted
that the road was originally de-
signed for 35 m.p.h.
A request to repair and up-


date the vacated Chamber of
Commerce building has been
approved with an estimate of up
to $25,000.
One of the features to be in-
stalled will be handicap acces-
sibility.
After repairs are made the
economic development council
will move its office there, and
later the chamber may return to
the building when needed:
When the old county jail is
renovated there will be some of-
fice location changes.
The probation office and 911
will both be housed in the reno-
vated jail. The State Attorney's

room.
Gail Jones, county tax collec-
tor, reported to the county that
payment in lieu of taxes (PILT)
for the state prison had been dis-
tributed to the county and school
district.
However, according to coun-
ty attorney, Richard Pringle, PILT


money previously set aside for
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) is no
longer necessary, because a
Florida Statute states that PILT
money is not intended for water
management.

funds are re-directed to the:

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat'
GLADES COUNTY -- On
May 13, county commissioners
listened to a request from the
Glades County School Board,
approved two tourism ordi-
nances, and heard a request
from the Ortona community.
Wayne Aldrich, school dis-
trict superintendent; and Mike


Pressley,_ school board chair-
man, asked the board for a
resolution calling for a referen-
dum that would enact an an-
nual ad valorem tax of .75 mils
for four years beginning the fis-
cal year of 2008-2009 for opera-
tions, while reducing an equal
amount of millage from capital
projects.
"It is tough times for Glades
County School District," Wayne
Aldrich said.
He went on to explain that
the district has already made
tough decisions and made cuts,

Photographer visits local Audubon


Dan Tudor hunts
owls - with a
camera

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES/HENDRY -- The
nine inch tall burrowing owl
is an enchanting and precious
creature to watch; but if you
are a frog, or big bug your life
is in danger.
Ounce for ounce, the little
owl is as quick and deadly as
the larger birds of prey.
Wildlife photographer, Dan
Tudor, became fascinated with
the burrowing owl population


of Cape Coral.
He photographs their life
stories from dawn to dark. His
work has appeared in "Times
of the Islands," a southwest
Florida island magazine, and in
Cape'Coral Breeze magazine.
Mr. Tudor has become the
source to go to with questions
about the four-ounce owl.
That is one reason why he
was asked to be a guest speak-
er at the last meeting of the year
for Hendry/Glades Audubon
Society.
His photo presentation on
May 12 at the Clewiston Mu-
seum was enjoyed by about 30
people of all ages.
His comments included hu-
morous anecdotes about the


owl families which were so in-
tricately portrayed by his cam-
era's eye.
By closely, and safely stalk-
ing the burrowing owl, Mr. Tu-
dor has captured their way of
life for all to study and wonder.
The photo collection
showed the 22-inch wingspan
of the owl, along with a col-
lection of its family life, fuzzy
nestlings, and the near double-
jointed use of its body.
The burrowing owl of Flor-
ida lives on the ground and
nests in a burrow.
Its population is scattered
sparsely throughout Florida
and is a species of special con-

Polygamy? Is there a problem? newszap.COm


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D,
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The State of Texas recently has
been involved in breaking up a
polygamous sect and has received
a great deal of news attention.
It has caused news contro-
versy and outcries among some
of the "victims" as a result of the
large number of displacements of
the helpless, the children, in the
process,
Should people be left to go
their own way in a "modern"
world? Our Church has been in-
volved in missionary activities in
a part of the world with customs
and outlooks different than our
own, including polygamy.
SWhen encountered, the thrust
was to point it out as something
to be remedied; something "un-
christian." The newly formed
Christians countered that the West
Shas its "polygamy" too. They re-
ply that in their part of the world,
a man has four wives at one time'
in the West a man has one wife at
four different times.
The argument is that they
Shave "horizontal polygamy" and
we have "vertical polygamy," so
what's the big deal? Their point
is a compelling one from their
perspective, speaking to the con-


edition where we find ourselves
in Western society today. What,
then, is wrong with polygamy?
Certainly, it was an Old Testament
practice and many of the real he-
roes and Biblical patriarchs prac-
ticed it.
Why the problem? I saw the
answer a few weeks back when
I attended my fiftieth high school
reunion. Claude and Annette
came, having gone steady all
through high school and marry-
ing shortly after graduation. They
appeared with a certain youthful
look, a certain calm, a certain
peace it seemed, and holding
hands as they talked to their old
classmates. They obviously had
something that many are missing
in the societies of today. The Bible
has prohibitions about relations
outside of marriage and the Ten
Commandments specifically con-
demn adultery (Exodus 20:14),
and Proverbs (chapter 7) cautions
again loose relationships. Why?
I think the answer is in the
way we are made. God has cre-
ated us in such a way that we
cannot know many others in
this lifetime at any depth or with
any significance without a total
and long-term commitment and
relationship with that other. It is
impossible to know many people
with great intimacy or with a ful-


filling level of involvement with-
out a great investment of time,
concentration and commitment
of self to that relationship.
The root meaning of "adul-
tery" is to "water down" (do you
remember hearing about "adul-
terated milk" or milk that has
been watered down?).
We seemingly have a choice
between several lesser relation-
ships in this life, or a limited num-
ber (perhaps only one) relation-
ship that is in depth and fulfilling.
Polygamy, even without regard
to human jealousy or favoritism,
means the sharing of intimacy
and the limited possibility of in-
depth fulfillment that comes in
traditional relationships with one
love. It will mean that as more are
added to an "extended family,"
the time, the amount of intimacy,
the sharing, the working toward
shared goals, the building of
bonds with loved ones and ones
own children will all be dimin-
ished.
Relationships will become
more functional, each partner will
be valued for the role they fill and
not for their being as a person.
No matter how "comfortable,"
no matter how well provided-
for; Shared love in this sense is
not complete love. We condemn
slavery (it was in the Bible too!)


because it does not treat persons
as persons, but values them only
for the role they fulfill.
Their being is watered down,
they are seen as less than the per-
son God intends, or intended for
them to be. When "marriages"
treat persons as less than whole,
complete persons, and reduces
them to receiving partial fulfill-
ment of their place in a family, as
someone to have a part of a life
but not all of it, this too is a kind of
slavery. Polygamy denies partners
from whole, fulfilling, in-depth
relations, it treats persons like ob-
jects. This is the "watering down"
of personhood, treating another
human being as less than whole,
less than the creation that bears
the image of the Creator. That is
wrong.
That deserves our best efforts
to educate, to help, to assure, to
protect, to correct where it is abu-
sive. In the meantime, we need to
love, protect, and hold sacred the
great gift of personhood, made
whole, complete, and sanctified
in our homes, and marriages.
The Lord chose to share an
earthly home when He came
to live among us; Two parents,
siblings, security and great love.
Need we look further?


How to know what God expects of you


Jackie Miller
Ralph Waldo Emerson asked:
"Why should we not have a first-
hand and immediate experience
of God?"
Of course in every age, some
persons do have spiritual experi-
ences that give them a sense of
closeness with God, a feeling of
Really having made contact with
SDeity. But more people go through
life, perhaps holding some sort of
faith in a higher Being,'without
any real sense of really knowing
God as a living Presense.
At First Christian we are just
completing a video study, "Vi-
Isualized Bible Study Series", in
Which the truth is revealed that
there have been Three Ages of
STime. First the "Patriarchal Age"
Sor "Father Rule Age" in which
God spake directly with the heads
of families and gave His law This
age began with Adam and contin-
ued through Genesis to the book
of ikodus,-chapter 20.-The Bible


says "God spake in times past to
our Fathers" (Hebrews 1:1). The
Second Age was the "Mosaic
Age" which began with Moses
receiving the law on Mt. Sinai
and the nation of Israel came un-
der covenant with God. This age
continued all the way through the
Old Testament and the first four
books of the New Testament, the
Gospels. The Bible says "The law
came by Moses but grace and
truth came through Jesus Christ"
(John 1:17). It also says that Jesus
was born under the law (Gala-
tians 4:4). The Third Age is the
"Christian Age" that began after
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Great Commission was given
at the beginning of.this age, "Go
into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved, he that believeth not shall
be damned. (Mark 16:15-16). This
commission is also found in Mat-
thew 28:1812Aand hjLu� 24:46-47.


This Great Commission began to
be carried out on the first Pente-
cost after the resurrection and as-
cention of Jesus. The Gospel was
preached for the first time as a
fact.in Acts 2 and when the hear-
ers asked what they should do,
the one who had the keys of the
Kingdom, Simon Peter said, "Re-
pent and be baptized everyone of
you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy
Spirit." With this the "Chistian
Age" and "The Christian Church"
was launched. Those who gladly
received Peter's word were bap-
tized the same day and they con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
Doctrine, Fellowship, Breaking of
Bread and Prayer (Acts 2:41-42).
Unless one understands the
Three Ages he cannot "rightly
divide the word of truth" (2 Tim.
2:15). Romans 10:17 says "Faith
cometh by hearing and hearing
by The Word of God." . , ,


How can one go past the bar-
riers that seem to separate you
from the Infinite One? First, you
must have faith in God and the
Gospel (Heb. 11:6, Mark 16:15-
16). Second, because you do be-
lieve the Gospel (Christ died for
our sins, was buried and arose
from the dead the third day. I Cor.
15:1-4), you choose to Repent of
sins (Acts 17:30-31). Third, you
are willing to confess your faith
in Christ (Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-
10). Fourth, you will submit to be
immersed in water in the name of
the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20), for the
remission of sins and to receive
the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), and
thus you have obeyed the Gospel
(Romans 6:1-5, 16-18).
Yes, you can have a "born
again" experience just as Jesus
said in John 3:5 "Except a man
be born of water and the Spirit he
cannot enter into the kingdom of
God."

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Civil War ended in 1865.
But it wasn't until 1997 that the
last shot of that war was fired. In
1997, two young boys were play-
ing around with their new metal
detector when they came across
a live shell that dated back to the
Civil War. The police were came
and explode the shell, in many
ways making it the last shell fired
from the Civil War.
It's pretty amazing that years
after the end of a war, its weapons
could still be alive and capable of
destruction.
Yet that seems to be the nature
of war: its effects linger on in the
lives of people and nations for
many generations. Most of us can
recall the World War II photo of
five Marines raising an American
flag on the island of Iwo Jima.
The man in the center of the
photo was John Bradley. Al-
though Bradley won the Navy
Cross for saving a fellow soldier's
life, he preferred not to talk about
the war and refused to accept any
hero worship that others tried to
force on him.
One of the few comments
Bradley ever made about the war,
he made to his young son in re-


sponse to a remark about hero-
ism. Bradley replied, "The real
heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys
who didn't come back."
This weekend, we honor
those men and women who
didn't come back. The ones who,
in President Abraham Lincoln's
words in the Gettysburg Address,
"gave the last, full measure of de-
votion."
When we reflect on the honor
and heroism of our soldiers, we
are confronted with the sacri-
fices they made, as well as our
response to those sacrifices. The
whole concept of anyone making
sacrifices for us, much less dying
for us, sometimes makes us un-
easy. Confronting their heroism
forces us to stop and examine our
own lives.
Why did they do what they
did? What cause is worth dying
for? Would we be willing to do
the same?
Celebrities are people who
make news, heroes are people
who make history. The qualities
of heroism are eternal -- self-sacri-
fice, courage, honor, duty.
A man who served in the
Navy during World War II shared
that one night he was.running
his transport across the Atlantic


when he noticed the white trail
of a torpedo coming toward him.
His ship was filled with hundreds
of soldiers, and the potential loss
of life would have been devastat-
ing.
Nearby, a smaller ship had
also seen the torpedo coming.
The captain of the smaller vessel
maneuvered his ship between the
transport and the torpedo. The
explosion destroyed his ship, kill-
ing all those on board.
The man who told this story
ended it by saying, "The skipper
of that other ship was my best
friend."
Slowly, he remarked, "You
know, there is a verse in the Bible
which has special meaning for
me now. It is this: "Greater love
has no one than this, that a man
lay down his life for. his friends."
What kind of love would give
itself up for another? What kind
of love would be willing to die for
you and me?
It is the love that Jesus dem-
onstrated to show us how much
we mean to God. It is the love we
celebrate today in the example of
those soldiers who gave their lives
for our freedom.
In India there is a cemetery
where the bodies of American


soldiers are buried. Over the en- and is committed to
trance to the cemetery are these providing excellence in
words: "Tell Them We Gave Our a18 "' athletes and
Todays for Their Tomorrows." the I At CCS we
Let's never forget that our to- Int stude. maxi-
morrows were bought with a their ifts
.price. Someone had to pay with'^- to become
their lives, so that we might be "EmeIag n Leaden
free today.
There is no way we can suf-
ficiently say, "Thank you." In the
revised words of the hymn, The
.Battle Hymn of the:Republic, "As
He died to make meninholy, let us .
live to make men free,,God's truth
is marching on."

As I was watching the news last night I was sickened to hear the
forestry lady say that it isn't "cost effective" to put out the fire. When
did we start putting the well being of-people behind the cost of put-
ting out a fire. Do they not understand that we have so many people
getting sick by constantly breathing this smoke..And to make matters
worse is the accidents that occurred today on Highway 27. A man lost
his life due to the smoke. Was his life not worth the money needed to
put out the fire? I feel as though if Glades and Hendry county were a
wealthy community such as Naples they would have made sure the
fire was put out. When will they realize that you can't put a price on
the health and well being of our residents here around the lake. A
concerned resident sick of smelling the smoke!

The history behind Memorial Day


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
Turning back to 1868 we find
the beginnings of what is now
known as Memorial Day, a time
that was set aside to honor the na-
tion's Civil War dead by decorat-
ing their graves. The day was first
widely observed on May 30,1868,
to commemorate the sacrifices of
Civil War soldiers by proclama-
tion of General John A. Logan of
the Grand Army of the Republic,
an organization of former sailors
and soldiers.
On May 5, 1868, General Lo-
gan declared in General Order
No. 11 that: The 30th of May, 1868
is designated for the purpose of
strewing with flowers, or oth-
erwise decorating the graves of
comrades who died in defense of
their country during the late rebel-
lion, and whose bodies now lie
in almost every city, village, and
hamlet churchyard in the land. In
the observance no form of cere-
mony is prescribed, but posts and
comrades will in their own way
arrange such fitting services and
estimonials of respect as circum-
stances may permit.
During the first celebration of


Decoration Day, General James
Garfield made a speech at Ar-
lington National Cemetery, after
which 5,000 participants helped
decorate the graves of the more
than 20,000 Union and Confed-
erate soldiers buried in the cem-
etery.
This 1868 celebration was in-
spired by local observances in
towns throughout America that
had taken place in the three years
since the Civil War. In 1966, the
federal government, under the
direction of President Lyndon
Johnson, declared Waterloo, N. Y.
the official birthplace of Memorial
Day. They chose Waterloo which
had first celebrated the day on
May 5, 1866 because the town
had made Memorial Day an an-
nual, community-wide event dur-
ing which businesses closed and
residents decorated the graves of
soldiers with flowers and flags.
To honor members of the
armed forces who died at sea,
some ports of the United States
also organize ceremonies where
tiny ships filled with flowers are
set afloat on the water. Easton,
Pa., holds such a ceremony an-
nually. A boat filled with flow-
ers, made by students of Easton
,High School, is set afloat on the


Delaware River. Since the end of
World War I, Memorial Day has
also been Poppy Day. Ex-service-
men sell small, red artificial pop-
pies to help disabled veterans.
In recent years the custom has
grown in most families to deco-
rate the graves of all their loved
ones on Memorial Day.
It is believed that a Virginia
woman Cassandra Oliver Mon-
cure, was largely responsible for
May 30th being chosen. Of French
origin, she may have chosen May
30th because in France this date
was "The Day Of The Ashes",
commemorating the return of
Napoleon Bonaparte's remains to
France from St. Helena. Nation-
ally, Memorial Day is celebrated
at Arlington National Cemetery
with a ceremony in which a small
American flag is placed on each
grave and it is customary for the
president or vice-president to give
a speech honoring the contribu-
tions of the dead and lay a wreath
at the Tomb of the Unknown Sol-
dier. About 5,000 people attend
the ceremony annually.
In Glades County, Memorial
Day services are held annually at
Ortona Cemetery. This year's ser-
vice will be Monday, May 26, at
11 o'clock. This will be the third


year for the observance to be held
at the Glades County Pavilion lo-
cated at the back of the cemetery,
providing shaded seating and
ample parking.
This year, the speaker will be
Retired Colonel Wendell Taylor,
U. S. Air Force, Vietnam Veteran
who flew bombing missions dur-
ing the Vietnam War. The Honor-
able Mr. Taylor is also the Glades
County Manager.
Soloist will be Larry Luckey, II,
and taps will be played by Tyler
Wilson. Opening and closing re-
marks will be by the Riv. Mr. Earl
Cline of Palmdale. Special refresh-
ments will be provided by the
American Legion. With our coun-
try embroiled in yet another war,
it behooves all of us to remember
with honor those who will not
come back and to pray for those
still on the fighting lines to keep,
our country free from harm, re-
membering that "Freedom is
Never Free".

well over a hundred residents

members.
The medical facility initially
opened its doors in October 2007.
Since that time, an average of 18

basis.
Many of the local residents,
who attended the open house on
Tuesday afternoon, gave words of
praise for the healthcare services

One person asked if the facility
offers lab work, and an employee
was happy to respond that labo-
ratory services are available, as
well as x-ray procedures.
Another gentleman, who gave
his name as Jim, said he was ex-
tremely pleased with the rehabili-

Remember Shakespeare: What fools these mortals be


"What fools these mortals be,"
wrote Shakespeare.
Have you ever met a fool? Have
you ever been a fool? Both have
proven to be a thorny encounter.
How foolish we are when
God is not center of our lives and
when men exalt themselves in-
stead of God.
This was illustrated recently
when a couple in central Penn-


sylvania named their newborn
daughter, "Atheist Evolution." Her
father said that the name was
their reaction to the popularity of
biblical names.
He said, "There's so many
people named Christian or Chris-
tina.
This is just one person named
Atheist. What the heck's the dif-
ference?" (Cited in The Pastor's


Weekly Briefing, Volume 2, Num-
ber 38).
The psalmist David describes
the foolishness of sin: The fool
says in his heart, "There is no
God."
They are corrupt, their deeds
are vile; there is no one who does
good.
The Lord looks down from
heaven on the sons of men to see

Biofuels: Local family at round level
local farmers.
Trying to keep the family in the
family farm is getting tougher be-
cause of rising costs and regula-
* ~ tions. For instance, Bryan 11 said,
the cost of fertilizer has doubled
in the past year because the US is
shipping its ingredients overseas.
Corporate procedures have the
effect of keeping locally-grown
produce out of the hometown
groceries. For instance, when lo-
cal farmers are harvesting water-
I' melons, local stores feature mel-
ons from Central America. They
, . won't buy locally because their
corporate offices already have
their supplies set up. Local farm-
ers are shipping their melons to
Canada.
Still the Beers are trying to stay
optimistic. If the jatropha experi-
ment works out, it could mean an
important success for the family
business.
The Beer family isn't just look-
ing to the future, they're laying
the groundwork now - hopefully
for a better life for themselves and
Caloosa.Belle/Patty Brant the rest of us. As Bryan senior
Bryan II, Bryan and Brent Beer are working hard to make a success of their new jatropha put it, "If you shoot at the moon
planting. The family has two fields planted in the tropical nut that they hope will be a viable enough times, you're bound to
fuel alternative. hit a star."


Jatropha nut
may be promising
investment
By Patty Brant
Independent Newspapers
Everyone is affected -by rising
oil costs - and in ways that may
not be obvious.
In recent years the push to
come up with appropriate alter-
natives to petroleum oil has be-
come a surge.
Unfortunately, many of the
biofuels that have been touted as
alternatives have been based on
food sources.
For instance, ethanol made
from corn was to make a big dif-
ference in this- country's depen-
dence on oil.
A quick check of the prices of
grain products shows what hap-
pens when large amounts of food
are diverted to other uses.
Food prices have gone up as
supplies have gone down. Clear-
ly, there needs to be another solu-
tion.
Another plant, called the jatro-
pha curcas, is coming into focus
in the hunt for a. ,heap, sustain-
Sable source of fuel. .
In Hendry County, the Beer
family has already incorporated
20 acres of jatropha into their cit-
rus and vegetable operation.
Bryan Beer and his sons,
Bryan II and Brent, are taking
the initiative - hoping they're on
the ground floor of a real biofuel
break-through:
Even so, the Beers are the first
to admit they're just feeling their
way through this new territory.
"We're looking to diversify,"
said Bryan.
He said he saw an advertise-
ment for the plant about a year
ago and decided to look into it.
With somt tractors using as
much as 120 gallons of diesel per
day, the reasons are obvious.
At this time, jatropha oil can
be added to diesel in a 20-80 mix.
If the Beers' experiment works
well, it will mean a 20 percent
savings on their fuel bill.
They're hoping that in time the
process will be improved for even
better savings.
This tropical plant has been
used in places like Mexico, Cen-
tral America and India for some
time.
Jatropha seeds contain about
31-37 percent oil, which can be
used as an additive to diesel fuel.
The seeds, although toxic, also
have some medicinal purposes
and the "cake," or portion of the


seed left over after the oil is ex-
tracted, is high in nitrogen fixing
compounds and can be used as
organic fertilizer, according to ja-
tropha supplier My Dream Fuel,
LLC.
Extension Agent for Hendry
County Gene McAvoy said this ja-
tropha is new to him, too. He is
aware of the Beers' experimenta-
tion with it and is taking a wait-
and-see attitude about just how
important the plant will be as a
biofuel source.
He said it is an "industrial"
plant that requires permitting,
especially for the disposal of by-
products. The plant is somewhat
toxic, so.it cannot be used to feed
cattle like orange rind or some
other by-products.
"I'd like to see a little more
evidence, more information,".Mr.
McAvoy said, "A lot of ideas come
and go." He cites the craze to raise
emus and llamas in recent years.
The Lee County Extension Of-
fice is also experimenting with ja-
tropha. Recently, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kot-
tcamp attended the ceremonial
planting of about 100 seedlings
in Lee County, Many others were
planted on a one-acre demonstra-
tion farm at Orange River Parkn
the Buckingham. , roj
Jatropha is an industrial proji
uct that, to become a real factor
in the fuel industry, would require
a large amount of acreage as
well as an infrastructure to sup-
port production and distribution.
That's a large piece of the picture
that just isn't there yet. The overall
costs are also unknown as yet, he
added.
Mr. McAvoy feels there may be
"something there" with the jatro-
pha plant, but gaining accurate
information and taking it to the
final stages is a process that must
be taken a step at a time.
The plant has attracted the at-
tention of some very heavy hitters.
Archer Daniels Midland Company
(ADM), Bayer CropScience AG
and Daimler AG are interested in
the potential of the jatropha. Ac-
cording to the Bayer CropScience
Web site, in addition to its pos-
sible fuel advantages, jatropha
also has a positive carbon dioxide
balance, which can contribute to
protecting the climate.
On the downside, the jatropha
plant and seeds are toxic and re-
quire careful handling. Harvest-
ing is labor intensive because the
nuts ripen at different times and
have to be picked by hand. Ex-
perts say it will take years of re-
search before the plant could be
a viable fuel source.
The State of Florida is also


investigating biofuel production
and the Florida Biofuels Associa-
tion is a partnership between ag-
riculture and waste management
to explore market opportunities
for biofuels derived from waste
products.
Meanwhile, the Beer family
is betting that jatropha will be a
part of the future fuel market. The
family has roots in Hendry Coun-
ty agriculture that go back to 1965
when Bryan's father, Victor Beer,
got started in the citrus business.
At one time, the family owned
6,300 acres, all in citrus. Now they
have sold off some property and
have about 1,500 acres in both
citrus and vegetables.
Farming is a way of life. Farm-
ers, they say, are the best stew-
ards of the land, providing habitat
for wild animals and taking care
of the water supply.
Brent mainly handles the
family's leveling and land devel-
opment division while Bryan II
handles the groves and farms.
Dad has graduated to mostly pro-
viding guidance, he said.
Bryan II has more or less taken
the lead in jatropha production.
He has learned a lot but admits
there are a lot of unknowns. The
Plant will grow, in poor soil, but
'he said they're experimenting
with the best way to cultivate it.
They have planted some from
seed purchased from My Dream
Fuel, a company owned by a
Washington, D.C. attorney named
Paul Dalton.
At this point they're treating
the crop like groves, using the
same fertilizers and weeding the
jatropha fields as they would for
citrus and it seems to be thriving.
However, the plant is not "main-
tenance free," they point out. The
plants are hardy, but do not like
the cold.
They put their plants in the
ground last October, starting
them from seed about two years
ago. They're not sure, but expect
a first crop in about 2009 or 2010.
Although everything is very "iffy"
right now, they believe the yield
should be about 1,000 gallons of
oil per acre. As they learn more
about the plant and the process,
they hope to increase that yield.
Inside the nuts are pods with
the precious oil. At this time, the
nuts must be picked by hand but
eventually the Beers expect a me-
chanical harvester of some type
will be available.
The family is looking at buy-
ing its own press so they can have
the entire operation on-site. They
think they can serve both their
own diesel needs as well as other

Getting tough and physical
The Glades Day Gators had a very solid spring football
practice recently in preparation for their spring football
game at home against American Heritage-Plantation,
which is tomorrow night. One highlight of the action came
from a lineman drill overseen by defensive coordinator and
lineman coach Eric Pitts, who was teaching Chris Franco,
Josh Cuthbert and Tyler LeCroy, all linemen, a 'trap' play
that's designed for the linemen to squeeze and close the
hole from the opposition.

Preparing for Naples
The Clewiston Tigers football team ran a set of 'gassers' recently as a conditioning drill, which will help them be prepared
for their spring football game against the Naples Golden Eagles, who are the defending Class 3A state champions. A mes-
sage to all Clewiston Tigers football fans: The Tigers will play their spring game on May 24 at 7 p.m. in Naples.


Hendry County Speedway Race Report


. Hendry County Speedway
- hosbed a ladies night out on Sat-
urday evening.
Wives, daughters and friends
were given the chance to test
their skills on the race track.
One of the stand outs was
number 32 Katie Campbell. She
drove very well and added that
she would be. joining the Mini
Stock class in the future.
Another driver who earned the
respect of the fans was April Mos-
ley. No surprise that she can drive
she is the daughter of track veter-
an Sabrina Mosley of Pahokee.
I think after this event we may
see her in her own car in the fu-
ture. Dorothy Jackson also re-
ceived honors for driving Adam
Powell's car flawless through the
run.
Limited Late Model action is
always a blast. Split heat races
saw number 44 Tim Powers of
Okeechobee draw the number 1
pill and run away with the heat
race.
In the 2nd heat there was a
lot more action. number 96 Bob
Steinmetz of Naples and number
15 Bob Ragula of Dania got to-
gether on the back stretch send-
ing Steinmetz right into the path.
of number 35 Calvin Fillingame of
Labelle. Fillingame's car flew into
the air and then slammed the wall
ending his evening.
Steinmetz would replace a
front tire during the clean up and
race back to 3rd in the heat won
by number 61 Thomas Scott of
Okeechobee.
Tim Powers continued his
win streak on his birthday. Eas-
ily drove away from the field on
every restart to capture the check-
ered flag.
Thomas Scott had run 2nd
most of the race but ended the
night with a DNF. Steinmetz who
had been running 3rd was sent to
the back for losing the nose of his
car and causing a caution.
On the restart Steinmetz was
up against the wall trying to put
the pass on number 3 Joe Henke
when Henke shot up the track to
miss a spinning number 17 David
Morr.
Steinmetz and Henke bounced


off each other and the wall all the
Way down the straight into turn
one where they collected Morr in
the pile up.
Greg Morrison number 12 was
able to escape all harm and finish
2nd. Tommy Hill number 88 of
Clewiston was given credit for the
3rd spot after being spun out on
the final lap.
Street Stock Division is always
great racing. Bobby Vaughn of Le-
high Acres won heat number 1.
Bob Cook of Palm City drove to
victory in heat number 2.
When the 13 car field took to
the track for the feature, number
29 Jesse Brown was at the rear of
the pack..
In just one lap with some good
use of the top side of the track
he was in 6th position. Nothing
could stop him from getting to the
front in a big hurry. Jesse Brown
of Clewiston got the win from the
last starting spot.
Jerry Ferrell number. 98 of
Okeechobee had a spin early in
the race was able to drive back
to 2nd. Tommy Hill number 1H of
Clewiston grabbed the 3rd posi-
tion.
Steve Mosley number 1 of Pa-
hokee grabbed the win in heat
1 of the Pure Stocks. Then it
was number 9 Brian Morgan of
Okeechobee in the 2nd heat.
Morgan who has had his share
of bad luck over the last couple
of weeks was able to stay out in
front and lead the whole feature.
Steve Mosley put on a good run
but had to settle for 2nd.
Johnny Mosley number 68 of
Belle Glade grabbed himself a top
three spot.
Bomber Division hit the track
with 9 cars. J.R. Fitch of Vero
Beach took the heat and feature
wins.
After the race the driver of the
big Chevy Caprice said work is
under way for a Street Stock ride
in his near future, Camaro style
my favorite.
Vincent Taylor number 48 of
Port St. Lucie had a 5th place fin-
ish in the heat but was able to
score the 2nd spot in the feature.
Melissa Agent number 007 of La-
belle drove to the 3rd position.

Mini Mods showed a stronger
8 car turnout. Glenri Bidwell of
Loxahatchee took the win in the
caution free heat race.
The feature was "follow the
leader" with the leader being
number 10 Wayne Hildebrand
of Okeechobee. He got into the
groove and on to victory. S.C.
Klinger number 28 of Pembroke
Pines was trying all he could do to
catch Hildebrand but had to settle
for 2nd.
Ron Dubeau number 11 of
Royal Palm Beach grabbed the
3rd position.
Mini Stocks were shown the
way through the heat race by
number 00 Christian Augsperger
of Palm Beach Gardens who is
only 13 years of age.
The feature event was led
mostly by number 32 Eddie
Campbell of Stuart. All drivers
nose to tail most of the race. On
the last lap last corner Augsperger
got into the back corner of Camp-
bell and brought him around.
The flagmen wanted to rerun
the last lap but all the cars had
already left the track so scoring
went back to the last completed
lap.
The win was awarded to
Campbell. Augsperger would still
get 2nd. Devlin DelleChiaie num-
ber 3d of Jensep Beach would get
3rd.

Gardening Tips to help prevent "blossom end rot"


Dan Culbert - Extension
Horticulture Agent
Many home gardeners are try-
ing to keep down grocery bills by
growing their own vegetables. But
if produce is consumed by pests
before it reaches the table, there
will be no relief from high food
prices and a lot of frustration.
Several vegetable gardeners
have recently contacted our office
with a tomato problem. They re-
port that their plants are growing
well, with healthy green leaves.
But the fruit seem to ripen early,
and when picked, the bottoms
of the fruit have a large brown to
black rotten spot.
Welcome to the wonderful
world of "blossom end rot", the
subject of this week's horticulture
column. It will cover what we
know about why this occurs and
what does and doesn't work to
avoid this issue of several fruiting
vegetables found in your Florida
Yard.
- A Deficiency - Not a Dis-
ease
It turns out that Blossom-end
rot (BER) is not caused by a dis-
ease organism, but is actually
caused by a localized calcium de-
ficiency and water stress in the
developing fruit. So fungicides
will not help with this "rot." But


please read on - it's not cured by
just simply adding more water or
calcium to the soil.
Blossom end rot occurs on
many different vegetables that
produce edible fruits. Tomatoes
are the most common victims of
this disorder, as are the related
peppers and eggplant. Other fruit-
ing vegetables are the cucurbits,
so it's possible to see this same
affliction on watermelons and oc-
casionally summer squash.
Symptoms appear first as light
tan, water-soaked areas. As the
fruit ripen these damaged areas
enlarge and turn black.and leath-
ery in appearance. Most often this
problem occurs at the blossom
end of the fruit, but can some-
times be seen on the side of the
fruit. It may also occur inside the
vegetable so it may not be seen
outside the fruit.
The browning and shriveling at
the blossom end can be followed
by a secondary decay from dark-
colored fungi. Remember these
are not the cause of blossom end
rot, but these decay organisms
merely colonize damaged fruit
tissue.
Water without Calcium =
BER
Calcium and all other plant
nutrients must be dissolved in


water to get into the plant. They
move from the roots to the leaves.
Leaves are'the primary spot
where water is used before it is
lost through transpiration. Under
high moisture stress, water con-
taining calcium and other miner-
als moves rapidly to the leaves.
However, fruit do not tran-
spire as much as leaves. Nutrients
can bypass the fruit resulting in
a localized deficiency. So BER is
a calcium deficiency in an area
of rapid growth - the end of the
fruit. This lack of nutrients causes
cells to collapse and produce the
sunken-lesion symptom of blos-
som end rot.
Good Gardening Reduces
Fruit Loss
Experts have identified a num-
ber of the factors that contribute
to this problem. Included below
are suggestions that will reduce
blossom end rot (BER) in your
garden. *Improper soil prepara-
tion and planting: Transplants that
are grown too quickly or too old
can experience root damage that
limits nutrient uptake. Include a
lot of organic in your soil to help
absorb and hold water.
*Poorly drained soil: this will
encourage root rot, and damaged
roots won't work correctly to ab-
sorb nutrients.


*Inadequate or excessive soil
moisture: Tomatoes, need one
inch of water per week, and more
when the fruit are developing. If
rainfall is not enough, thoroughly
water plants once a week. Heavy
soakings are better than light
sprinklings. More frequent water-
ing may be needed in sandy soils
and during the first week after
transplanting.
*Low soil pH levels (below
5.5): Ideal calcium solubility oc-
curs when soils have a pH 6.5 to
6.7. If you have not tested your
soil pH in the past 2 to 3 years,
bring in a sample to our office to
see if any adjustment is needed.
*Inadequate calcium in the
soil: In Florida, adequate soil cal-
cium is considered to be 300 ppm
or higher. Low calcium levels
rarely happen here, so if you sus-
pect this is a problem, have a soil
test done. If the test results show
a soil calcium deficiency, add cal-
cium sulfate (gypsum) to the soil
during garden soil preparation.
*Applying the wrong form of
calcium: Foliar applications of
calcium chloride sprays are often
suggested. Some garden centers
sell these products as the "cure"
for BER, but these products has
not proven to reduce BER. Calci-
um that is taken up by the leaves


can not be moved into to the
fruit.
*Applying too much nitrogen
or using the wrong form of nitro-
gen: using ammoniacal sources
of N will often increase BER
symptoms as excess ammonium
ions reduce calcium uptake. Use
nitrate nitrogen as the fertilizer ni-
trogen source.
*High salinity or excess levels
of soluble potassium and magne-
sium: A low calcium level in the
plant may be a result of competi-
tion from high levels of ions such
as magnesium.
*Excessive pruning or other
mechanical damage: Hoeing
weeds closer than one foot from
the plants may cause root dam-
age.
*Using plastic mulch instead
of organic mulch may increase
BER if plants are not watered. Use
organic mulches like compos-
ted yard waste, grass clippings
or wood chips which conserve
moisture and reduce BER.
*High soil temperatures con-
tribute' greater needs of water
and can add to BER problems.
The calls about this problem cam
when it is hot and dry, not when
the weather is coo and moist.
*Nematode damage to root
system reduces the ability of roots


to work. Consider nematode re-
sistant varieties, practice crop ro-
tation and have plenty of soil or-
ganic matter to discourage these
microscopic soil worms.
* Certain plant diseases such
as curly-top virus are said to in-
crease blossorr-end rot prob-
lems. Whiteflies can transmit this
disease - use control measures
for these insects.
*Cultivars can differ in their
susceptibility to the problem: Cor-

ca and Walter seem to have some
tolerance to BER.

Farm Bureau members march on Capitol


WASHINGTON , D.C.-More
than 80 Florida Farm Bureau (FFB)
members on May 13 marched up
Capitol Hill and laid their farm la-
bor woes at Congress' steps.
Carrying a' sign that said,
"Don't Tie Our Hands," and with
hands bound with green yarn to
symbolize how current immigra-
tion law and temporary worker
programs hinder agricultural
production, the Florida farmers
said comprehensive immigration
reform is the only real solution to
their labor problems.
Comprehensive reform usual-
ly refers to legislation that creates
legal avenues for people to enter
the United States , enables those
who are already here to earn legal
status and improves security at
the U.S. borders. For agriculture,
it also includes an improved agri-
cultural guest worker program.


Congress has not acted on im-'
migration reform in more than
two decades, and reform is long
overdue, the FFB members said.
They called for Congress to pass
comprehensive reform this year.
After the demonstration, they
fanned out for meetings with
members of Congress on immi-
gration and other issues. Farm
Bureau members had made ap-
pointments to meet with Florida
members of Congress or their
staff liaisons as part of the group's
annual "Field to the Hill" visit.
"We are here in the nation's
capital to say that Congress must
take action or else our hands as
the nation's food producers are
tied," said John L. Hoblick, FFB
president. "If farmers don't have
a system for hiring the labor we
need, when we need it, at- a fair
market wage for the type of work


that these workers do, then we
may lose fruit and vegetable pro-
duction in Florida and the U.S."
Many of Florida 's most prof-
itable' crops include fresh fruits,
vegetables, flowers and nursery
products, products that need to
be hand harvested. But finding
U.S. workers who are willing to
do the work is harder than ever,
and many farmers turn to work-
ers from across the border to
meet their labor needs.
That has presented several
problems, from not being able to
verify the workers' legal immigra-
tion status, to not getting tempo-
rary workers when they are need-
ed, to federal wage requirements
that are out of whack with typical
agricultural wages.
SThe American Farm Bureau
Federation says billions of dollars
worth of U.S. agricultural produc-


tion, mostly in fresh fruits and veg-
etables, are at stake if Congress
does not pass comprehensive im-
migration reform and provide an
effective agricultural guest worker
program.
"That means job losses, not
only in agriculture but also in oth-
er industries that are connected
with agriculture," said Hoblick.
"Congress must address this eco-
nomic issue."
The Florida Farm.Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville , the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization. More informa-
tion about Florida Farm Bureau
is available on the organization's
web'site, http://FloridaFarmBu-
reau.org.


Folk Festival Features Ranching Traditions


TALLAHASSEE-Cowboy po-
etry, saddle making, cow whip
plaiting, roping, branding, saddle
bronc riding, country music and
swamp cabbage are among the
Florida cattle ranching traditions
that will be featured at the Folklife
Area of the Florida Folk Festival
on Saturday, May 24 and Sunday,
May 25, in White Springs.
i The Folklife Area is organized
and implemented by the Florida
Folklife Program, .Florida Divi-
sion of Historical Resources,
Department of State, in Tallahas-
see . Folklorists from the Florida
Folklife Program conduct annual
surveys to identify and document
folklife..
With the assistance of a grant
from the National Endowment for
the Arts, staff have documented
cattle ranching traditions through-
out Florida over the past year.
Cattle ranching began in Flor-
ida when Ponce de Leon, Pedro
Menendez de Aviles, and other
Spaniards introduced Andalusian
criolla cattle in the 16th century.


Today more than one million
cattle graze on five million acres
of Florida pasture and woodland.
For years, Florida was the leading
beef producing state east of the
Mississippi River and today re-
mains in the top five.
On Saturday and Sunday, May
24 and 25, in the Folklife Area,
dozens of tradition bearers from
the statewide cattle ranching
community will present a rich
and diverse array of occupational
arts, foodways, verbal arts, and-
music.
Festival goers will see Cracker
cows and horses descended from
the 16th livestock introduced by
the Spanish, as well as feisty Flor-
ida cow-dogs.
Cowboy artisans will demon-
strate spur making, saddle mak-
ing, whip making, and a variety of
leather creations.
Cowboy poets will delight and
amuse their audience with home-
spun-and often hilarious-verse
drawn from experience working
on the swampy range.


Toes will be tapping to the
country and western and Colom-
bian vallenato bands.
Chad Mills will prepare swamp
cabbage using his adaptation of
the recipe learned from his father,
Buddy Mills, in Okeechobee.
Folklorists will host narrative
stages where veteran cowmen
and women will recall adventures
on the swampy range.
Seminole cowboy Paul Bow-
ers will present the history of
Seminole cattle ranching, the sys-
tem of earmarks and brands used
by the Seminole Tribe, and the
cattle drive that he organizes as a
public celebration of their ranch-
ing heritage.
Cuban American cowboy Jos6
Carlos Martinez will demonstrate
roping, and invite the public to
participate in roping contests.
The Florida Folk Festival takes
place on May 23-25 at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park in historic White Springs.
The Festival is sponsored by
the Florida Department of Envi-


ronmental Protection's Division
of Recreation and Parks as a cel-
ebration of Florida 's people and
heritage.
It features music performanc-
es, arts and crafts, a Festival Mar-
ket Place, a wide array of foods,
folklife demonstrations, storytell-
ing and living history.
The Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park is located
on the banks of the beautiful Su-
wannee River.
Gates open daily at 8 a.m. at
the -Stephen Foster Folk Culture
Center State Park on US 41, three
miles from 1-75 and nine miles
from 1-10, in White Springs.

Festival.com.


Citrus Mutual urges President to sign Farm Bill


LAKELAND-Florida Citrus Mu-
tual Executive VP/CEO Michael
W. Sparks Thursday urged. Presi-
dent Bush to sign the Farm Bill
into law after both the U.S. House
and Senate passed the measure
- byveto-proof majorities.
. "President Bush should sign
this bill which for the first time
ever recognizes the importance
of fruit and vegetables," Sparks
said. "This historic bill is good for
Florida citrus growers."
The bill, which passed in the
House by a 318-106 vote and the
Senate by an 81-15 vote, authoriz-


es almost $1.5 billion in manda-
tory spending for programs that
benefit fruit arid vegetable grow-
, ers. Florida is the second largest
producer of fruits and vegetables
in the U.S. and by far the largest
producer of citrus, a $9.3 billion
industry that creates 76,000 jobs...
"Citrus greening, a new dis-
ease that kills citrus trees, is
spreading throughout our indus-
try," Mr. Sparks said. "As a result,
the number one funding priority
for Florida citrus is pest and dis-
ease research. The current Farm
Bill addresses the need for invest-


ment in research.
"On behalf of the 8,000 grower
members of Florida Citrus Mutu-
al, I would like to thank Congress-
men Tim Mahoney, Adam Put-
nam and Allen Boyd in the House
and Senators Mel Martinez-and-
Bill Nelson in the Senate for their
hard work on this bill and their
support of Florida citrus."
Founded in 1948 and currently
representing nearly 8,000 grower
members, Florida Citrus Mutual is
the state's largest citrus growers
organization. For more informa-
tion, please visit www.flcitrusmu-

"You should respect, protect
and enjoy these birds," said Dan
Tudor.
The Florida Ornithology So-
ciety documents that Glades
County is a breeding site for the


Aug. 26 for a vote.
It is a special school district
election for reduction of a portion
of existing capital ad valorem tax,
and to make available an equal
amount for operations.
Mike Pressley commented that
school district personnel would
go to community associations,
clubs and organizations in order
to speak to residents, and answer
questions about the referendum.
County commissioners ap-
proved the resolution in favor of
putting the referendum on the
ballot for Aug. 26.


There is also a need for a new
bridge, or placement of a new
bridge in another location.
The FDOT learned from Glades
County officials that there are seri-
ous concerns for the use of S.R.
29 as a major corridor for truck-


little owls.
They are usually spotted while
feeding right before daybreak
until late morning, then they are
active again in the late afternoon
until twilight.
Wildlife watchers can find
them raising their young on prai-
ries, scrubland, vacant lots, school


An ordinance was approved
to establish the Tourism Develop-
ment Council which will advise
the board on tourists and tourism
businesses in Glades County.
A council of nine members
was designated by the board to
include Paul Beck, Harry Ogle-
tree, Rhonda Planty, Bill Redmon,
Nita Shirley, Janet Cavin, Patti
Pearce, Patty Register and David
Ferguson.
A second tourism ordinance
was also approved to set a county
referendum on the ballot for Nov.

ing, and the preferred location of
a new bridge should be east of
LaBelle.
A public workshop will be held
by FDOT in LaBelle on June 17 at
the LaBelle Civic Center.
They need public input from


yards, ball fields, cemeteries and
the fringes of airports.
They excavate their own four
to eight foot burrows, or use ones
left by tortoises and armadillos.
Your family can invite this tiny
hunter onto your property by in-
stalling an artificial or starter bur-
row.


The ordinance would call for
a two percent tourism develop-
ment tax only on motels, hotels,
and other short term rental lodg-
ing.
This type of tax is already in
use in most Florida counties and
the proceeds are used to en-
hance, promote and advertise
Glades County.
It is estimated to bring in
$36,000 the first year, according
to the department of revenue.
Both tourism ordinances were
studied and requested by Tracy

Living in harmony without a fear of nature


By Nancy Dale

Palmdale, on the shoulder of
Lake Okeechobee, is one-of the
last pristine wilderness areas in
Florida surrounded by large oaks,
S stately cabbage palms, and gentle
meandering Fisheating Creek that
echoes with a cacophony of crick-
ets into the night sky.
But, amidst the serenity of this
quiet environment, nature's crea-
tures still rule, sometimes shrivel-
ing man's self-importance, when
paths cross unexpectedly.
On Dec. 1st, as the blazoned
orange and lavender sky was
shading into dusk, it was the close


of another day as I prepared to
depart from the peaceful refuge
of my 1952 Spartan trailer. Reach-
ing, as I have done thousands of
times before, into the dArkness of
a musty cabinet near the floor, I
felt a quick prick on the thumb
and briskly withdrew my arm into
the light.
As I examined the ruffled skin
on my thumb, I began to observe
in less than three seconds, motley
circles of blue and black swirling
quickly around my rapidly swell-
ing finger.
Apparently, hibernating in this
cozy dark spot was a -small pyg-
my rattler that was surprised and
disturbed as I reached into "its"


space.
Perhaps, we were both aston-
ished, as I brushed my append-
age over its cold body and instinc-
tively, the little creature reacted
out of self-preservation, just as I
did when I quickly withdrew my
arm from the cabinet.
Just a naturally as if the little
snake was hiding underneath a
log and felt threatened, it issued
a bite that was either "dry" (not
fully releasing a full fang of ven-
om) or a what could have been a
deadly warning.
Not knowing for sure, or want-
ing to believe I had been bitten by
a venous snake, I hesitated to re-
act too seriously as there was no


blood or severe pain.
However, there was no deny-
ing, I knew from research that a
finger turning black was a venous
snakebite moniker.
After all of these years, "fate"
had called my card. It wasn't the
near brushes with charging bum-
ble bees, arched-tailed stingers of
scorpions, or the visiting family of
hogs, it was a snake in the trailer
that made Nature's presence felt.
But, this time I was lucky, I lost
no finger digits and other than
some lingering muscle tension in
the arm after a month or so, I had
no other affects.
Luckily, Jeff Harrod of Vanish-
ing Species down the road got me


into an ambulance and I was at
Lake Placid hospital within half
an hour should I have needed
anti-venom which they have.
Six months have passed, and I
have pondered, researched, talk-
ed with ranchers, exterminators,
and others about how to return to
the trailer and slide my feet under
the covers in my bed and sleep
soundly without the vision of gi-
ant fangs and a wet cold body
slipping underneath the sheets
to nuzzle down beside me into a
warm cozy space.
Finally, I got the courage to go
back to the trailer with Jeff who
came inside, shook all the sheets
out, opened the closets and the


cabinet.
No sign of any creatures. Jeff
recommended that I stay the
night, but I couldn't quite bring
myself to be that brave, yet.
.But I did sit inside for a long
time, uncorked a bottle of wine,
turned on some calming music,
and picked-up where I left off.
I climbed up on my sawhorse
bed, opened wide the curtains
and watched the blazoned sun
sink into a lavender sky as the af-
ternoon faded into dusk.
On this day, I felt safe.


A free online tutoring program


The Department of Education

Northern Everglades farmers receive accolades for environmental stewardship


S OKEECHOBE E-Twenty-
nine farmers were honored for
their environmental stewardship
Thursday at the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center.
The owners of the agricultural
operations were recognized by
Florida Farm Bureau's County
Alliance for Responsible Envi-
ronmental Stewardship (CARES)
program for their outstanding ef-
forts in implementing Best Man-
agement Practices (BMPs).
Rep. Denise Grimsley hosted
the event along with Florida Ag-
riculture Commissioner Charles
Bronson, Florida Farm Bureau
President John L. Hoblick and
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection Secretary Mike
Sole attending to help recognize
the farmers.
The farms recognized were


Tree Locators Garden Center
Plants and More, The Graham
Farms Sugarcane, Eagle Island
Farms, Inc., Milking R, Inc.; Lar-
son Dairy, Inc. Barn # 5; Butler
Oaks Farm, Inc.; B-4, Inc.; South-
ern Accent Farms: Allen and Nicki
Smith; Dog Creek Ranch; B & C
Management: Bruce Carter; Lake
Cattle Company: Buck Daniel;
Florida Commission Company;
Dees Cattle Company; Coffee
Cup Ranch; Seminole Land and
Cattle; Daniel and Marcia Can-
dler; Amistad Ranch: Jose P.
Fanjul; Montsdeoca Ranch; The
Dixie Ranch; Dixie West; W Bar E
Ranch; The Lockett Place; Syfrett
Ranch; Street's Ranch; 4A Her-
eford Polled Hereford and Cross-
bred Cattle; Hamrick and Sons,
Inc.; Newcomer Ranch; Triple A
Ranch and M Cross Ranch.


CARES began in 1999 with
the formation of the Suwannee
River Partnership in North Florida.
CARES and the Partnership were
formed to address environmental
concerns, and promote economi-
cally viable BMPs and conserva-
tion planning while recognizing
farmers as stewards. The North-
ern Everglades CARES program
works in conjunction with the
University of Florida IFAS, the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, USDA-
Natural Resources Conservation
Service, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
South Florida Water Management
District. This program also sup-
ports incentive based, voluntary
programs instead of command
and control regulation.
"We feel that it is important


to recognize these 29 farmers
for taking the time and effort to
implement practices that are
environmentally friendly," said
Hoblick. "I am pleased that we
have been able to expand the
CARES program into the North-
ern Everglades area. We see these
operations as examples of the
steps that Florida's farmers and
ranchers are taking to produce
safe, affordable and abundant
.food while being good stewards
of the environment."
The CARES recipients were
recognized in front of their peers
at the Okeechobee County Agri-
Civic Center on Thursday eve-
ning. Each received a plaque and
a farm sign identifying them as a
farmer who cares.
In addition to recognizing the
farmers for being environmental-


ly conscious, the CARES banquet
itself was a 'green' event. Farm
Credit of South Florida provided
unique plates,.drinking cups, nap-
kins and eating utensils that were
designed to quickly decompose.
The 1,000 plates and beverage
cups used at the event were 100
percent biodegradable and made
of an agricultural, compostable
product called bagasse; a by-
product of the sugar refining pro-
cess. The 1,000 forks and knives
were made from potato-starch,
a byproduct of the frozen potato
product industry, and are also
biodegradable and compostable.
Representatives of Farm Credit
of South Florida said that the com-
pany strives to be environmentally
friendly and support both agricul-
ture and the environment through
the use of sustainable products.


The event would ,not have
been possible without the dedi-
cated assistance of the Okeecho-
bee Agri-Council. This group of
local farmers and ranchers pre-
pared the meal and helped with
event logistics.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gen-
eral agricultural association with
about 140,000 member-families
statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an in-
dependent, non-profit agricultural
organization and is not associated
with any arm of the government.
