Hospital Status

By Jacob Bembry

After months of discussing whether to

Board of Directors voted unanimously to do
so at their regular meeting on Thursday. Jul\
Critical Access Hospitals are a ne"
class of Medicare providers, introduced
through the Medicare Rural Hospital Flexi-

Act of 1997. It was recogriiied that maiy5 of
the smallest rural hospitals were finding it

Dillon Herring is doing much better now,
and N isiting "%ith his mother up north, accord-
ing to his father, Scott. Four-\ear-old Dillon
was badlN burned when he fell into a fire
from his bicycle on Tuesday evening. May
Dillon was carried by ambulance to
Madison Count. Memorial Hospital. The lo-
cal Shnners got together and phoned the bum
center in Cincinnati, Ohio, and told them they
had a bum victim who required immediate
treatment. A jet was flown from Cincinnati to
the Valdosta, Ga. Airport, where Carlton Bur-
nette and Bob Pugh, hospital administrator,
met the jet and brought two of its crewmem-
bers to MCMH. "He has healed up remark-
ably," said Scott. Scott said that Dillon would
have to go to the Shriners Bum Center in
Tampa one more time to make sure that
everything is still going well.

Ravings Are Good Substitute

For Comic Strips
Dear Editor:
A report issued in the fall of 2004 by the United States chief
weapons searcher, Charles Duelfer, a document that President
Bush said would represent the last word on the issue, stated there
were no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq or any facilities to
build them.
Apparently Mr. Duelfer and President Bush didn't have the
special insight of the Madison County lunatic fringe who insist
they are the only ones who have it right. How do they do it?
Oh well, their ravings offer us a good substitute for the com-
ic strips other papers carry. Thanks for publishing them and of-
fering your readers a good chuckle.

Thanks For The ComplimentI
I kind of .laughed the other day when I saw the letter from
Hugh Janus. (How do you pronounce his last name, anyway?) I-
believe that he (or she, I'm not positive, but I believe the name
is fake) must have been reading the column about Wyatt Sexton
wrong. Never did I defend those who are bipolar or drug users,
nor did I condemn them. I definitely am not a liberal, as sug-
gested in Hugh Janus' letter to the editor.
In my column about Wyatt, I did say that I believe Jesus is
the Son of God, who was born of the Virgin Mary. If Hugh Janus
doesn't like that, it's just tough. It is the truth not because I be-
lieve it, but because it is so.
I have gotten a few compliments and a lot of complaints,
lately. I have been working my butt off, I've been under a lot of
stress and I know that I've made mistakes. All I can say about
my mistakes is that I'm sorry! When I am complained about be-
cause of my faith in Christ. however, I take that as a compli-
' meant! '
Thanks, Hugh. ho\ ever you pronounce your last name. I ac-
cept the compliment!

Growing A Garden
All of us have a garden growing. But you say, "I don't have
a garden growing. I haven't planted anything." When you think
.of a garden, you usually think of one that has either farm veg-
etables planted or a beautiful flower bed. But there is still,an--
other type of garden growing that will, never be harvested until
we are gone from this world. You may ask, "What kind of gar-
den is it?" "Why does it take so long to harvest?"
We have an opportunity on earth to make a' decision as to
what type garden we want to grow. The decision will determine
what the harvest of your garden will be. To make your garden
grow better one only needs the right ingredients. Then, your:
harvest will be abundant and overflowing.
Remember when .. .Door-to-door visitations and church
visitations were a natural thingto do as a child of God? Try vis-
iting a shut-in, or visit a nursing home one day. I can guarantee
there's someone there that w would really appreciate a good shoul-
,der to talk to. Then, sit and listen to them. Listen to them This
person will probably have so much to talk about.and share with
you and it will not only do them some good, but it will benefit
you too. A little kindness and a good heart go a long way.
Remember when....you couldn't travel long distances, tele-
phones were not available and .one 'had to write letters to com-
municate with each other? \\ith cell phones, and telephones \we
find ours-elves just calling those we haven't seen or visited in a
long while. Why not take an afternoon trip and spend some time
with them. Your presence and concern show your love for them.
Have you ever been over at,grandmothers and she showed
you a letter from a loved one that she has kept for many years?
With computers and e-mail todad, the fine art of writing a per-
sonal letter have almost disappeared. Take, the time to sit down,
and write someone a long letter. Talk about things you believe
they might like to know. Share; from your heart. This x ill not
only mean a lot to them but these letters if kept b i that person
could mean even more to generations to come.
If we want those who know us to want God inrtheir lives,
our actions must speak louder than our, words.V When we show
love to others and concern, the right ingredients and seeds are
being planted in our garden and it doesn't matter if our garden is
a vegetable garden or flower bed; our harn est % ill be great.
Most importantly we must persevere to keep any weeds and
o\er-grow th from coming into our garden. We must take care of
this garden that we ha\e been so blessed to have. Talkng care of
our garden takes our lifetime. We muIst caie loir this hjrest b\

Daisies To FCAT Takers;
Darts To Health Department
Tons of sweet-scented daisies to our high-school students, who
raised the school score from F to D. That achievement took work,.
attention, and perseverance. I, for one, appreciate your dedication to
getting the job done.
Daisies to .Madison County Correctional Institution inmates..
who keep our downtox n looking so garden-ish.
Many bright daisies to CVS for their spanking-new building.
and to Kentuck\ Fried Chicken on their newl\ reno\ ated one. Both
make attractive additions to our business community.
Tranquilizer darts to a health department official for ignoring
danger. A man on his way to work spotted a reeling raccoon in the
road at the Central School. He turned around and drove back into
to\\ n to the health department to report it. The official told him theN
wouldn'tt take an\ action unless the animal "'interacted" with hu-
mans. The man w&as astounded. The coon \\as on a road humans
use that and in front of a school Ihumans use that) Does the health

The Madison Enterprise-Recorder 3A

The Boy Scouts say "Be Prepared."
How many times, nations and individuals are
not ready for important events. There was Pearl
Harbor. The fleet and the army units and the air-
fields were not ready. At Chancellorsville in
1863, Stonewall Jackson's yelling Confederates
burst from the woods, taking a camped Union
Corps completely by surprise. They were not
ready. No one expected 9/11.
But one of the most striking examples of not
being vigilant, of thinking it can't happen here or
now, is the mostly unknown and tragic story of
Fort Mims.
It was August 30, 1813, in what is now Bald-
win County, Alabama. A fort built of wooden logs
had been established for the protection of settlers
in the area. When word came that there could be
trouble with the Creek Indians, about 550 people
moved into the fort The atmosphere at the fort
was somewhat casual. The large gates to the
stockade had been left open for quite awhile. The
large group consisted of men, women, and chil-
There was one problem... and it was a very
big one. Since no one really expected an attack
from the warriors, the atmosphere was one of re-
laxation rather than vigilance. .
The gates had stayed open too long. Piles of
dirt drifted against the doors and they could no
longer be closed quickly.
This proved to be deadly for many settlers.
Without warning, while the fort's people

sang, danced, played cards and had their noon
meal, hundreds of screaming, painted warriors
ran from the forest and through the open gates.
Accounts say between 750-1000 warriors at-
tacked. Several hundred men, women and chil-
dren died under the tomahawks of the Red Sticks.
A few escaped the wild scene of fire and
death. They brought the story to other nearby set-
Eventually, the Creeks were defeated. The fi-
nal battle came at Horseshoe Bend when Andrew
Jackson led a force of American troops into bat-
tle, trapping the Indians in. a bend of the Ten-
nessee River.
It was a tough lesson.
We often learn lessons which cost us dearly.
Sometimes we lose time, sometimes money,
sometimes our freedom, and sometimes our
health. Sometimes the lessons are never learned.
The person who knows that drunk drivers kill and
injure others, often continues to drink and drive.
Sometimes the lessons are repeated until they fi-
nally sink in.
An early American hero, Zachary Taylor, was
known as Rough and Ready. I think that could be
a pretty good nickname.
In the Book of Matthew, in the Bible, we are
told that our choices have definite consequences
(Matt. 7:13-14). We must choose to be alert, pre-
pared, but not fearful.
When the sand piles up against the gates, it is
time to wake up.

Back To School $hoppin Doesn' Have To BreakThe Bank

Tax-free week is a great opportunity to save
on purchases for the new school year. But, even
with sales and tax breaks, shopping for back-to-
school can still put a major dent in your budget.
To make your dollars go further, plan your
spending before you ever hit the stores.
Before you shop, go through each child's
closet to determine which clothes will still fit -
use these clothes to build a wardrobe. Older chil-
dren and teenagers can do this task for them-
selves. Make a list of clothing items that you
need to purchase to coordinate with items that are
still wearable. Keep in mind the weather will be
hot for several months, so summer clothing or
clothes from the end of last school year may be
suitable for starting out the new school year.,
Aimless bargain hunting and impulse buying
can waste time, money and energy, so write down
a plan before you enter the stores. Nothing is a
bargain unless you need it! Investigate all
sources of clothing department, discount, used
clothing shops and catalogs. Compare the mer-
chandise available in quality and price. Be sure
to check a company's policy for purchasing and,
returning items. Some establishments may only
allow merchandise exchanges while others may
be willing .to give a full refund you need to
'know this information is case something doesn't
fit needs to be returned.

Buy only completely labeled clothes. Fiber
content and care instructions will tell you what to
expect in terms of wear and care of the garment.
A garment may not be a bargain if it has to be
hand washed or dry cleaned, likewise, one may
not be practical if it requires ironing. Children of
all ages need clothing that is durable and easy
If you have a child experiencing a growth
spurt, buy a limited selection of clothes that nmi\
and match. Chances are, you will be replacing
them within a few months. For clothing that will
get a lot of wear, buying higher qualilR fabric
and construction; well-made clothing may cost a
bit more, but it wears better.
Used cloilung may not be cool in some kids'
eyes, but it is a great \a\i to e.Itend our cloth-
ing dollar. The reality of, clothing children is
that they often outgrow the clothes long before
they are worn out. Check with friends and rela-
tives to see if clothing can, be exchanged or
passed on. Often children are close in age, so
that one child is just a size behind the other,
It is up to you to get the best value. Care-
fully plan, make a list, decide on the amount of
money you have to spend, and comparison shop.
After you have purchased clothing, properly
care for the clothes to maximize their wearing

small, isolated hospitals could meet Medicare's conditions of participation as a hospital with
slightly less, stringent staffing and service requirements, and would receive cost-based reimburse-

for the hospital might also include helping obtain federal funding for new hospital construction.
CAHs are limited service hospitals, permitted to operate no more than 15 acute care beds, plus
an additional 10 if they are used as swing beds for long-term care.

It is critical that people

framework of history and an
atmosphere of encourage-,
ment. the YLF offers peers
with common challenges and&
experiences the opportunity to
learn from one another.

To my family and citizens of Madison County
A precious one from us is gone.
A voice love is stilled, s
A place is vacant in our heart -
Only with God's love can it be
And after a lonely heartache
And many a silent tear,
But always refresh with.
beautiful fond memories -
Of one we love so dear.

weather arrives.
The subject was discussed at the weekly club lunch

check into the details, such as -where to get the candy
and obtaining a business to sponsor the sale.
Current plans call for club members to sell candy at
various locations throughout the county. Funds will be

Archie's has Closed!
i'ail of lamentations! Toda\.
we received a call from Wanda
Henderson, who said, simple\
-"M'N bubble has burst." and we
said, "Oh. no, Archie's is clos-
ing?" "No," she replied. "I'm
already closed. I just wanted
to tell you myself."
We are so sorry Wanda
was not only a great cook, she
brightened up the place.
Archie's was a place kInow n
not only for great food but the,
atmosphere was one of con-
viviality, w ith people enjo\ ing
fellowship with food. We,
wish Wanda well at least,
she's out of a hot kitchen and
that must be a relief in this hot
\ weather.
Rumored good news,
though. is that the popular
restaurant will open again in
September under new man-
agement, -\ ith a net\ name (we
won't let that cat out of the
bag), and will specialize in,
barbeque. Ask the John
Ryan's if this is correct.
We join all those w ho .are-
so glad to see Tina DeMotsis
back in town we're sure she
will be an asset to this coun-
ty's law enforcement. Also,
we were tired of seeing 'your .
house empty so long, Tina
welcome home!
We were also happy to
hear that Frances; Mercer has
been able to return home from
the hospital and hope her full
recovery will be swift.
Besides Frances, others
who need. a prominent place
on your prayer list are Frank

Donaldson, seriously ill with
throat cancer: Jack Berghuis,
also seriouslI ill in a Lake
Cit) hospital. We believe both
%\ill be or have been placed in
hospice. Please pray both for
them and their families.
Ronnie Payne is home
from the hospital. %e're happ\
to report. He joined the Lee
Seniors for lunch last Wednes-
day and. except for some lost
weight and looking rather
pale, he w as the same old Ron-
nie and %with the same good
appetite! We were glad he
could join us.
Linda Swan is another on
our good news .list she is now,
able to \\ork again and is back
at the library we're glad to
have you back Linda.
We were sad to find
James McNichol's home emp-
t\ recently seems it sold. they
moved, and it's already\ being
landscaped and repainted. We
don't kno\ ho\\ soon it \\ill
be home to a new\ tenant but
ne\\ ones couldn't be nicer
than James. Melissa and little
Trey we \\ill really miss
We had the pleasure of a,
visit from daughter Mona and
husband Charlie. over the
weekend. Ssh, don't tell her
we said so but she really came
to see the puppy! At least, she
gave him a bath.
We have a new fence -
Frank Ellis did a great job -
and Big Ben the new puppy is
happily romping in the yard
without a leash. He is already
about twice the size he was on
arrival. Our "hole in the wall"
has been repaired thanks to ,
Leonard Miller'and son. Jere-
my, and we are grateful to the
quick response to our problem
from Terry's insurance agent, i
Keith Hargrove he was great.
As we move slowly
through these days of summer
,body and brain become num- '
ber and number. ,
But, keep our cool, folks,
this too shall pass
Late Bulletin We were 4
just informed of Jack i
Berghuis' passing Lorraine
really needs your prayers now.

Power Plant

they had some ideas, but that they didn't want to go into detail,
because they are still in negotiation with Taylor County.
"We wouldn't want to quote one thing to you, and then have
Taylor County ask why they didn't get the same quote," said
Mike Lawson, with JEA.
The proposed power plant will create 1,500 construction
jobs. When' the plant is completed, it will generate 150 perma-
nent jobs in the area. Many of these jobs are technical positions,
which pay from $25-$40 per hour,
A question was raised about the availability of employees
from Madison, due to the technical aspect of the training. One
suggestion was that the NFPP look into starting a technical pro-
gram in conjunction with North Florida Community College.
The proposed plant is one unit, which is capable for gener-
ating 800 megawatts of power, with a 750 megawatt net output,
which will provided power for approximately 400,000 people in
the Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Orange and Osceola County areas
and other parts of Florida. The plant will not serve Madison
County, because Progress Energy and Tri-County Electric cur-
rently serve the county. The Public Service Commission deter-
mines the utility companies, which service each area.
The plant will also house a super critical boiler, which is
more efficient than most boilers. A bag house in the plant will
control solids and emission controls.
All of the power will be generated from coal and pet (pe-
troleum) coke.
Pet coke is a fuel produced using the byproducts of the pe-
troleum refining process. Crude oil must be refined to produce
gasoline and other products..A residue is left over from this
process that can be further refined by cokingg" it at high tem-
peratures and under great pressure. The resulting product is pet
coke, a hard substance that is similar to coal. Pet coke, like coal,
is used by electric utilities such as JEA. And pet 'coke has a
much higher heating value than coal, at around 14,000 British

count from. page.A

Thermal Units (Btu) per pound, compared with 12,500 Btu per
pound for coal. That means, compared with coal, less pet coke
needs to be burned to create the same amount of heat.
According to the NFPP officials, modem technology means
cleaner plants. A chart was shown which showed emissions
from four different power plants. The Crystal River coal plant
emits 1.2 lbs/mmBTU of SO02 (sulfur dioxide), 0.5 lbs/mmBTU
of NOX (nitrogen oxide) and 0.1 lbs/mmBTU of PM (particu-
late matter). In comparison, the proposed NFPP is estimated to
emit only 0.12 lbs/mmBTU of SO2, only .07 -lbs/mmBTU of
NOX and 0.015 of PM.
The initial site selected for the NFPP was in Gainesville.
Gainesville Regional Utilities (GRU) elected to build for only
their load and dropped out of the project. Seminole Electric Co-
operative, Inc., which had been part of the project, elected to
drop out when they decided to build to capacity at the Palatka
site. '
The proposed date to begin construction, if Greenville is
chosen for a, location will be in 2007. Local contractors will be
hired when it is possible. The project management staff: of the,
NFPP will move to the area.
An average of about 100 car trains per day will deliver fuel
to the plant. In addition to the plant site (up to 2500 acres), the
NFPP will also utilize rail and transmission corridors. An aver-
age of 10 trucks a day will deliver limestone for the scrubber.
The NFPP said that they would assist in addressing the in-
creased traffic during construction.
The four companies working with the NFPP are still.work-
ing, with the Foley area. Although packages and feelers have
been sent out to different counties, Madison and Taylor are the
primary counties not\ being targeted. The NFPP has dismissed
Hamilton County as a place to put the plant.,
The NFPP estimates that there will be a low to moderate im-
pact to the wetlands and there is ground water available.

School Board
cont from page 1A

sessing drugs, arson, battery, bomb threats, or serious campus
disruption results in expulsion and referral to the on-campus law
The grid applies to all students in grades six-12, excluding
the Madison County Excel School, which.has its own grid. The
Madison County School Dress Code also applies to all the coun-
ty's students PreK-12 except those who attend the Excel School.
The section of the code, which sets out the attendance poli-
cy responds to a new state law. Hubbard said, "The new statute
gives more teeth" to ihe attendance policy. Habitual truancy car-
ries a consequence of being placed in the ISAAC program and
referral to the law officer for the first offense. The second of-
fense means being expelled.
One change in the grid calls for the school board to hold a
hearing if a parent and student do not agree with the staffing
committee about an alternative placement. For instance, if the
committee recommends that the student go to the Excel Alterna-
tive School, the parent may request an expulsion hearing before
the board.
Tim Sanders, reporting for the Back-to-School Committee,
said that a special day is planned for S:aturda'. August 6, at Four
Freedoms Park from 10 a.m. until one p.m. Bookbags and other
school supplies \\ ill be distributed, as well as prizes and school
information for students and parents who gather throughout the

How has the recent rough weather affected farmers in
Madison County? Several crops are planted in this area and
of course each is touched in a different way by the weather.
Dan Buchanan of Flori-
da Farm Bureau pointed out
that perennial peanut hay can
be harmed with too much
rain. He said that to get the
hay cut, dried, baled, and
brought into storage, farmers
need about a week of dry
Buchanan said that
SMadison County had missed
a v much of the wind damage
which other parts of the state
Dwayne Leslie farms in
Dan Buchanan the Hanson area of the coun-
ty. He lost some of his peanut crop to the water. His squash
was hurt, but not wiped out. His corn is doing well and his
hay is also in good shape. He said that some pine trees may
be lost due to standing water. The trees do not do well when
water remains around them for a long period of time.
Richard and Lindy Cone have 850 acres of hay. They
have been growing this crop since 1995 and have found a
good market at the horse farms in the Ocala area in Central
Florida. The Cones also have some cows on their property.

Young Farmers And Ranchers

Take Leadership Tb The Next Level

Young farmers and ranchers from across the state gath-
ered at Walt Disney World to share ideas on taking leader-
ship in the agricultural industry to the next level at the 2005
Florida Farm Bureau Federation State Young Farmer and
Rancher Conference.
The event opened with an address by Mason S moak,
president of the Young Farmers and Ranchers Leadership
Group. Smoak stated that in its beginning stages Farm Bu-
reau leaders recognized the need to provide opportunities
for educational and leadership development for younger
members. The YF&R program gives Farm Bureau a contin-
uous source of strong leadership for the agricultural indus-
try, an industry which is the backbone of the nation.
"As agriculturalists," Smoak said, "we understand
above all the value of the American farmer and the role of
agriculture as it relates to,.our nation's national security,
health, environment and economy. American agriculture
provides consumers with the safest, most affordable and
abundant food supply in the world. We do have a great sto-
ry to tell
As a grassroots organization, Farm Bureau has been
highly successful with a long list of accomplishments. In
fact, "Fortune" magazine continues to rank Farm Bureau in
the Top 20 of America's most effective lobbying organiza-
Shawn Crocker, a member of the leadership group, said
Farm Bureau's success can be traced to the exceptional
leadership found among its members. In order for the orga-
nization to maintain this heritage, Crocker said it is\ ital for
new leaders to be developed to guide the organization in the
The event was held at the Coronado Springs Resort at
Walt Disney World. Participants enjoyed an evening at Is-
land, billed by Disney as an island of entertainmentin an oa-
sis of fun. Before venturing on their own, the group had din-
ner at the Adventurer's Club, an audience-participation
comedy club set in 1937 filled with tall tales of ad\ ventures
by a cast of explorers.
The Young Farmer and Rancher program pi-omotes
three contests which are designed to recognize leadership
and involvement. They are the Outstanding YF&R Contest,
the Excellence in Agriculture Award and the Discussion
Meet. Winners are announced at the FFBF annual meeting
in October.
The Florida Farm Bureau, YF&R Leadership Group in-
cludes men and women between the ages of 18-35. This is a
dedicated group of individuals who have committed to a
two-year program which offers educational, professional
and leadership development. The primary objective of the
program is to build a more effective organization, which
will help to preserve this nation's heritage of freedom and
expand opportunities in agriculture.
The Farm Bureau Federation is the. state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association with more than 150,000
member-families statewide. There are Farm Bureaus repre-
senting 64 counties in Florida, where agriculture comprises
a stable, vital leg of Florida's economy, rivaling the tourism
industry in economic importance. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an independent, non-profit
agricultural organization and is not associated with any arm
of the government. More information about Florida Farm

In the aftermath of the closure of Everglades Water Conser-
Vations Areas by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) at 12:00 a.m. on July 18, water managers are
exploring every possibility of moving water out of the system to
alleviate the problem. However, recurring rain events and physi-
cal limitations of drainage structures from the Water Conserva-
tion Areas have prevented the movement of water quickly.
The extremely high water levels in most of the Everglades
liave prompted the immediate closing of public access to
'730,000 acres, including Water Conservation Areas 2B and 3
(WCA) by FWC, which provides law enforcement to state lands.
The immediate goal of the closure is to protect wildlife in those
greas. With near record water levels in these areas continuing to
rise, deer and other animals are forced to move onto levees and
free islands for food and shelter. In an additional measure, the
South Florida Water Management District has suspended all lev-
ee mowing activities in the WCAs.
In some cases water levels are five feet higher this year than
in July 2004. All appropriate water release structures and flood
control structures available to lower water levels in the WCAs
and the entire system are running non-stop to control the large
build-up of water. In addition to direct rainfall, the WCAs receive
inflows from the north in the form of partially treated stormwater

from the Everglades Agricultural Area. Sometimes excess water
from Lake Okeechobee is released to the WCAs when the water
is desirable or has minimum impacts. Releases from Lake Okee-
chobee to the WCAs have not been made during the past few
months due to high WCA water levels.
The entire 16-county South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict's system is currently saturated, and each rainfall event in-
creases the need to move more water out of the system., Because
this is a rain-driven system, inflows into the WCAs will continue.
The outlets from WCA-3A to Everglades National Park are fully
Lake Okeechobee, at the center of the South Florida Water
Management District, reached its highest level for July in 70
years at 16.69 feet earlier this month.. This has prompted larg-
er releases to protect the health and safety of the public and pre-.
vent possible flooding. Currently, releases of excess water are
not being sent to the WCAs since the operating criteria prevents
these releases when the WCA water levels are high. The excess
water in the lake.is being released to tide via the lake's primary
outlets: the St. Lucie Canal and the Caloosahatchee River..
"The Water Conservauon A.reas i WCAs) reflect what is hap-
pening throughout the South Florida Water Management District
system", said Carol Wehle, District Executive Director. Water

FWC Uses Cutting-Edge Technology To Complete

Road-Kill Impact Study Of Florida Black Bear

When you think of DNA analysis, solving crimes proba-
bly comes to mind. The state's wildlife agency is proving that
same technology can also give us a better picture of how our
state's natural resources are faring,
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) today will release the results of a study examining the
impacts of roads on six black bear populations in the state. As
part of the study, FWC biologists collected thousands of bear
hair samples for genetic analysis to determine the sex of the
bear and generate a

DNA profile. They used this information to create population
estimates, which they then compared to the number of road
kills to calculate the road-kill impact.
"This is cutting-edge technology, and we are one of the
first states to use it," Kim Jamerson, FWC spokesperson,
said. "The result is we have the best population estimates to
date for these areas."
The Florida Department. of Transportation commissioned
the study, which ran from 2001 through this year, because ve-
hicle collisions with bears appeared to be increasing. The
FWC examined six bear populations in Apalachicola, Ocala,
Osceola. Big Cypress, Eglin and St. Johns Ri\er.,
"The tud 1howv. -, on aS ie,i'. 're not seeing mortal-
ity rates that are \ay out of line with other states," Jamer-,
son said. "Based on the current level of road kills, these
populations of Florida. black bears should be sustain-
able in the near future. However, if habitat de-
creases and new roads are constructed through
bear habitat their sustainability would be ques-
The Florida black bear is on the state's list of
Imperiled species as "threatened." In Florida,
the last bear hunt was conducted in 1993. The
harvest season wvas closed in 1994, and FWC
staff is not recommending resumption.
"This study focused on road .kills and
provides an excellent starting point for
monitoring bear populations," Jamerson
said. "It did not address issues such as
nuisance bears and bear hunting.
There is a wide range of opinions
regarding bear conservation. We
will be 'conducting a survey later
this year to gain a better understanding of public attitudes and
perceptions regarding bears and bear management," Jamer-
son said.
The estimated populations for each studied area are:
Apalachicola: 438 695 bears
Big Cypress: 516 878 bears
*Eglin: 63-101 bears
Ocala: 729 1,056 bears
Osceola: 201 315 bears
St. Johns: 100 179 bears

With more than three months left in the wet season, the pos-

its staff toda) to ad ertise a rule change I
and solicit public comment on the use '.,
of measurable biological goals that
define manatee recovery. The
Commission adopted the measur--'-=
able biological goals in January 2003. The proposed
rule change would define how the Commission uses
these goals when evaluating existing or proposed
manatee-protection zones.
In other manatee-related action. Commissioners
voted to re-establish state manatee protection zones in
Lee County's southern Matlacha Pass, completing a
rule-making action from the April Commission meet-
ing. At that meeting, the Commission re-established
zones in other areas of the county including Estero
Bay, northern Matlacha Pass, Pine Island Sound, San
Carlos Bay and the Caloosahatchee River.
The zones passed in southern Matlacha Pass are
identical to existing federal manatee protection rule
(25 mph in the channel, slow-speed outside the chan-
nel). Having state rules in this area will enable both
state and federal law 'enforcement officers to issue
state citations and use the state court system. This re-
sults in a more-modest fine than federal citations and
is, generally seen as more boater friendly.
State zones will enable the FWC's local partners,
such as"the Lee County Sheriffs Office and municipal
authorities, to enforce the zones. Local governments
are not authorized to enforce federal manatee zones
but can enforce state speed zones.
The administrative, process will take several
months before, these state, zones become effective.
However, an FWC spokesman said federal rules are in
effect and are being enforced by both state and feder-
al officers in these areas.

In 1910, Victor L. Berger became the first Socialist
elected to the U.S. Congress. He was reelected
twice before being convicted of sedition for
opposing U.S. involvement in World War I. The
U.S. Supreme Court reversed the conviction in
1921, and Berger's Wisconsin constituents
reelected him three more times.

In 1919, Kentuckian General John Thompson o
invented what became known as the
"Tommy Gun."

In 1938, Reader's Digest determined thatsmoking
was addictive. "Sooner or later, nearly every
cigarette smoker discovers that he is not smoking
by choice but by habit. He tries to break free of
it, but finds that he doesn't know how."

Get some rest. If at all possible, sleep in shifts so everyone is rested'
if the time comes to evacuate.
If you are in the middle of a hurricane, STAY PUT until the storm
passes. If you must leave your house for an emergency, use a large,
heavy vehicle, drive slowly, be alert and don't go very far. H
