pits are totally land-

only property owner af-

Beggs offered to pur-

the property.
McClune said that he
would be more interested
in a land swap for proper-

On Repaving Of Smith Street
By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Madison City Commission heard a request from
Shannon Jacobs, of the Madison County Health Depart-
ment, to consider resurfacing Smith Street in front of
the old health department.
City Manager Harold Emrich expressed a concern
about overlaying streets and-advised that there are sev-
eral other city streets that need repairs. Jacobs said that
the Madison County Health Department might be able
to assist with the expense of the resurfacing of Smith
Street in front of the old Health Department.
The Commission agreed by consensus to allow Ja-
cobs and Emrich to work together to get more informa-
tion on the request.
Jacobs said that the Health Department is interested
in working with the City to obtain a Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program (FRDAP) grant. Ja-
cobs will work with Chuck Hitchcock and Mary Gra-
ham, from the city's Public Works department, on the
grant application.

Get A Life

"And do not be drunk
with wine, in which is dissi-
pation; but be filled with
the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18
(New King James Version) ,
Wine is a mockery; ,
strong drink is raging: and
whosoever is deceived "
thereby is not wise. :)
Proverbs 20:1 (King James
The other day someone asked me why I thought so
many people in Madison County drink so much. I
replied that I felt it is because they don't really have a
life. They may think that they do and, to the world, it
may even appear that they do, but the sad fact is, they
have no hope. Many subject themselves to hangovers be-
cause the buzz of being drunk feels so good at the time.
Their inhibitions are down and they end up doing
things that, if sober, they would not do.
Many of the same people who drink so much rage
against the drug users that they know, citing the fact
that, at least, drugs are illegal and alcohol is not.
While alcohol may be legal and beer can be pur-
chased in Madison County, there are consequences that
come with drinking. If one drinks and drives, they can
end up in jail if they are caught. Worse still is that they
or someone else can end up dead or crippled. Another
scenario is that a person whose inhibitions are down
can end up in situations with another person and the
situations, such as fights or ending up in bed with the
wrong person, can destroy not only the lives of those
who are directly involved but the lives of others who
may not have had any control at all over the situation.

When A Minority

I've been watching the
College World Series,
missing parts of Jeopardy
and NCIS to see some kid
named Boomer at bat.
This has been fine base-
ball and good entertain-
ment. I've been rooting
for the team from Irvine,
simply because they have
the Anteater as their mas-
cot. Well, that and the fact
that they are good.
Watching these teams
for hours, I've made an ob-
servation that links my
own experience and a
statement from a profes-
sional baseball player last
week. .Connect the dots
here. no'f ":

The major-leaguer (a
black player) complained
that the management was
hiring Hispanic players,
instead of blacks, because
they were "easier to con-
trol." He added that own-
ers could pay Hispanics
less, too.
Is he nuts? No one
co~6trols" a player. '6 db-

Drinkers have a tendency
to quote the Bible verse:
"Drink a little wine for the
stomach's sake." They for-
J Bmbr get the "little" part. If a lit-
Jaob Bembry tleis good, they think, a lot
0o1 ,nm i. lt is better.
- i .,,'.-^,, ,, t ,I have read the Bible
through and found that
when wine was involved, it
usually led to some kind of trouble. Noah got drunk.
One of his sons saw him naked and Noah ended up curs-
ing him. Lot's daughters got him drunk so he would
sleep with them. Lot would not have done that gross and
sinful act had he been sober. Guess what happened?
Pregnancy Time after time, you find more and more
trouble because of alcohol.
When I was going to Florida State University, I went
to see a Billy Graham crusade at the Civic Center with a
young lady named Meg Rinard. Brother Graham spoke
about an actor in Hollywood who had gone out, gotten
drunk and slept with a woman he didn't know. The next
day, he woke up with a hangover and stumbled into the
bathroom. There on the mirror, written in lipstick were
the words: "Welcome to the wonderful world of AIDS."
Wine. Beer. Whiskey Cocaine. Meth. They all are ad-
dictive and can ruin your life. Do you want to end up in
jail, kill someone or wake up to a lipstick-written note in
a mirror?
My advice for them is to get a life. How? By turning
yours over to Jesus Christ. The world may look at me
arid say that I don't have much a life, but I do have the
promise of a glorious future forever in Heaven with
Christ my King.

Is In The Minority

cides whether to obey the
rules, listen to the. coach
and be a team player. It's a.
matter of self-control, not
whips and chains.
That player does have
a point, though; the per-
centage of black major-
leaguers seems to have
dwindled. However, the
reason has nothing to do

with salaries or control.
That leads to my expe-
rience. As a teacher in the
South, I have noticed the
way high school students
separate themselves from
others. Check it out for
:yourself. Here is the
breakdown: boys of all
stripes go out for football,
boys and girls of all colors
run track, black boys and
girls play basketball and
white boys :and girls play
baseball and softball. This
trend started about. 20
years ago and seems to
have laid down deep roots.
So, as I've watched
these college teams com-
pete, I'velsOen very few
black players. The an-
ndouncers have rea-dT-long
lists of these guys who
have been drafted by the
pros; the jobs are not go-
ing to black players be-
cause the black players
are not there.
It's too bad that a
professional player
would make such a
racist statement before
checking out the player
pool. And it's too bad
that we have taught our
children to choose a
sport because of the col-
or of the other players
instead of where their
greatest talents lie.
I can't do much to
change this pattern.
Maybe you can't either.
Maybe the best we can do
is cheer for the folks on
the field and enjoy the
game while we have it.
Go, Anteaters!

My View

Dear Editor...
I have been involved at some level of government in
Florida for the last thirty years, both as a local elected
official and as an appointed county administrator. I re-
tired this year after serving twenty years as the county
administrator in Jackson, Santa Rosa,. and Manatee
The Governor along with the Florida legislature are
very close to inflicting great harm on the citizens of our
wonderful state. They want to severely restrict the
amount of money that locally elected city and county
commissioners can spend on basic vital services re-
quested by local citizens. These services include, but are
not limited to law enforcement, emergency medical ser-
vices, community care for the elderly, local programs for
children and parents in need, libraries, state and local
government partnerships that thrive to attract good,
clean industry, in many counties, the ability to purchase
environmentally sensitive lands, ability to attract and
retain high caliber public employees, water and waste
water services so bask to all of us, and parks and recre-
ational programs. One can easily recognize that all of
these are quality of life issues in any Florida communi-
Shame on any elected state official who supports
these harmful restrictions on city and county govern-
ments ability to provide these quality of life services.
Local decisions should be made by the people that local
citizens elect
The Governor and Legislature need to take the time
required to address this very important issue. They are
preparing to make final decisions on an issue where it is
unclear to all of them what the resulting impacts will
be. A little' honesty on their part at this juncture would
be helpful.
I believe that some belt tightening on the local level
is justified. An approach that I think is workable .is. to
cap local property taxes at the current levels and then
cap future property tax expenditures to a small perteft-
age each year over current levels. This approach allows
local governments to plan for future tight budgets with-
out abruptly having to cut vital services to residents.
For Governor Crist to say there will be no cuts in vi-
tal. services such as law enforcement and fire rescue,
shows at best his total lack of knowledge in local gov-
ernment and at worst his political shallowness that is
designed to grossly mislead Florida residents. Every
county and city official in the state should be "ticked
off" to put it nicely, at the Governor's recent comments
reported in the Palm Beach Post. He was quoted as say-
ing "If they (local officials) let fire fighters and police of-
ficers go, I'll campaign against them so they lose at the
next ballot box........
The Governor's statement shows a total lack of sen-
sitivity to the awesome responsibility that local officials
have in finding enough money year after year to provide
needed and requested services for the citizens they rep-
Again, shame on you Governor Crist, shame on you
Rep. Rubio, and shame on any legislator who supports
'this "lack of leadership" approach.

Enjoy Summer Fruits And Vegetables
Whether you grow them or purchase them at the
store or road side stand, fresh fruits and vegetables are
abundant during the summer. Their wonderful color
and taste add so much to our meals, it almost make the
heat tolerable. Health experts now recommend we get
up.to nine servings of fruits and vegetables each day Al-,
ice Henneman, Extension Nutrition Specialist, suggests
the following tip can help you enjoy fruits and vegeta-
bles at their most flavorful time.
Some fruits ripen,after they are picked. Apricots. ba-
n anaas, cati-taloiipe,'kiw-i.' narigoeet.1't ta i 'e: 'pepcltys
.and peas .continue to ripei at roon u.XperaL.We, after
they are picked. To speed their ripening, put them in a
loosely closed brown paper bag. Plastic bags don't work
for ripening. Once fully ripened, store fruits in the re-
frigerator to lengthen their storage time. Although the
outside skin of a refrigerated banana will turn dark
brown, the inside will remain light in color.
Fruits that should be picked or bought ripe and
ready to eat include apples, cherries, grapefruit oranges,
pineapples, strawberries and watermelon.,
Cutting fruit ahead of time can be a problem for
some fruits;, apples, pears, bananas and peaches turn
brown quickly after being exposed to air. The solution
to this problem is the coat the fruit with acidic juice
such as lemon, orange or pineapple juice. A commercial
anti-darkening preparation will also maintain the true
color. These products can be found on the grocery shelf.
When serving fruit; try to cut as close to serving
time as possible. Cover and refrigerate cut fruit until
ready to serve. Avoid leaving cut fruit at room tempera-
ture for more than two hours.
The FDA advises that you wash fresh fruits and veg-
etables when you are ready to eat them rather than
when they're first purchased or picked. Here are guide-
lines for vegetables:
Thoroughly rinse raw fruits and vegetables under
running water before eating them. Don't use detergents,
or bleach solutions.
If necessary scrub firm produce, such as melons
and cucumbers, with a clean produce brush to remove
surface dirt.
Try to cut away damaged or bruised areas; bacteria
can thrive in these places.
Any bacteria on the outside of fruits can be trans-
ferred to the inside when the fruit is peeled open. To
prevent this, thoroughly rinse fruits that require peel-
ing or cutting such as cantaloupe and melons under
running water before eating them.

Today my best friend slapped me in the face.
They kept on walking, until they found an oasis,
where they, decided to take a bath.
The one who, had been slapped got stuck in the
mire and started drowning, but the friend saved him.
.After..he, recovered from, the.near: drowning, he'
wtota'on aestonew jq oij oj .. ; asi; no ai
T. Toda my'best friend sa4i ed-my life.
The friend who had slapped and saved his best

friend asked him, "After I hurt you, you wrote in the
sand and now, you wrote on a stone, why?"
The other friend replied, "When someone hurts us
we should write it down in sand where winds of for-
giveness can erase it away."
"But, when someone does something good for us,
we must engrave it in stone where no wind can ever
erase it."
Learn to write your hurts in the sand and to
carve your blessings in stone.
They say it takes a minute to find a special per-
"son, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them,
but then. an entire life, to forget them. .
SDo not..value the things you have in your life...
but value who you have in your life!

According to an ER headline of June 15th, the state
burn ban was finally lifted but it was too late for our
growing mountain of leaves. Just the weekend before,
family members were pruning, mowing and raking,
cooking and cleaning but the leaves remain stacked
high. We really appreciate the 'work day' though and the
visit from daughters Sharon and Mona, grandson Don TI
and great grandson Tyler but the leaf mountain is .
growing!, ':
Headlines of the June 13th Carrier were shocking -
the entire front page was about death and crime. We can't say that the death of a dog
was worse than that of the two people killed in accidents but it was such a shocking
crime. How could anyone cause such a beautiful animal such an agonizing death?
There were only three of those headlines in Friday's ER and one of them, "Man
Convicted of Assault with a Semi Truck," was actually funny (man throwing a truck!)
Congratulations to Tim Demotsis (a great guy) who not only celebrated his 50th
birthday while enjoying Father's Day with Louis but was honored at work on Satur-
day with a huge barbecue dinner (catered by Sonny's of Lake City). The dinner plus a
beautiful leather motorcycle jacket was given by his employer in appreciation of Tim's
30th year as a dedicated employee of Wes Haney Chevrolet. All this was a complete
surprise to Tim.
Ralph and Mary Hamilton's granddaughter Kristen recently graduated from

Homestead High.. Mary and granddaughter Maggie
drove down to Homestead to join in the celebration.
Shirley VonRoden, accompanied by grandson Zachary
.A..j spent a relaxing week recently with her parents who live
To.v n near Pittsburg. They flew from Jacksonville to Philadel-
o W phia and then to Pittsburg. Since she had not flown since
lelma Thorn) airport security has become such a problem, she said the
Gu ~ experience was quite a shock. Jacksonville though was
nice, she said, but not Philadelphia. We hope that doesn't
make Jacksonville slackers on security though.
Shirley said it was a great week they enjoyed some fishing until it rained but then
the family could enjoy indoor games and just being together.
Please add Carlton Bembry to your prayer list he recently underwent major
surgery at Emory hospital. They removed % of his stomach. We talked to him Monday
and he is already home and doing well says he's very gore and full of staples. Also
Ruby (Bembry) Reynolds (our sister) is scheduled for major heart surgery (which
couldn't be done 10 years ago) on the 28th so please keep her on your list.
Also, be good to your family they can be your best friends.

PS. Lee's Water'n Hole closed Saturday but someone is interested in its reopening so
remain tuned. We also arehearing rumors concerning Archic's again, and hope it's more
than rumors.

the city grows hay and
The water is first col-
lected at the plant, then
goes through an aeration
and biological process.
The water is treated in
sedimentation zones then
chlorinated. A number of
tests are done throughout
the process to make sure
that the parts per million
of biologicals in the water
meet state and federal
The plant was,complet-
ed in 2005, adding more ca-
pacity for treatment. The
plant is only currently at
35 percent of its capacity.
The wastewater plant has
a rating of 1.37 million gal-
lons a day, currently only
treating 600,000 gallons a
day. Theoretically, the
plant rating could be mod-
ified to rate four million
gallons per day.
Bigger cities, such as

How To Make

Recycled Paper
First things first gather equipment. You'11 need
a large tray or pan. a bowl of water, newspapers, a
blender, food processor or potato masher: wire net-
ting, instant starch, and a clothes iron.
Start out by ripping tup the paper into small
pieces. This can be fun or messy. even both. It does-
n't have to be perfect, or even neat, so just rip away
until your heart is content.
Then, place the paper shreds into the blender, and
add water and two tablespoons of starch. Blend the
mixture on high until it looks smooth and well blend-
ed. You've just made pulp!
Put one wire sheet on the tray or pan, with a little
bit of water in the bottom. Spread the pulp evenly
onto the wire. Once it's all spread out. lift the wire.
very carefully, out of the tray and let the water drip
off it.
Turn the mesh slowly and carefully upside down
on another piece of newspaper or blotting paper.
Very carefully remove the mesh and put a second
sheet of paper over the top. and roll it up to get out ex-
cess water.
Then, iron it dry.
Viola! Paper!
For a more fun look, try this with colored paper
and add items like flowers or leaves or pictures on top
before you iron the paper dry
These recycled pages make great stationary!

DIY Ethic: Record Bowl

How To Make A

Record Bowl
Making a record bowl is really easy and cheap, and
you won't need to buy anything you haven't already got.
It's a great way of recycling constunables. and says
something about who you are. Did you choose a record
with a kitsch forties-style label or a rare punkette 7-inch
with day-glo vinyl? The choice is yours!
What you will need:
1) A 7-inch or 12-inch record depending on how big
you want your record bowl to be
2) An oven
3) An oven-safe bowl
4).A clear acrylic sealer (optional)
How to make your- record bowl
First. preheat the oven to 225" degrees fahrenheit -
this should take about 10 minutes. Then put the bowl in
the middle of the oven upside-down, and put your record
on top of that. Bake for 5 minutes and no more.
After 5 minutes the record will be quite soft and
melty so you can start shaping your record how you
want it. The record will only be warm, and totally safe to
touch, even with bare fingers.
If your record starts to cool before you have got it
into the shape you want, don't worry You can melt it
again and again!
If you bake it a second time, you can place the record
in the bowl this will help it keep a bowl shape.
And that's it We (lid say it would be easy!
If you think you might be using the bowl for nibbles.
give it a coat of clear acrylic sealer and let it dry to make
sure the record doesn't get scratched not that you're go-
ing to be able to play it by the time you've melted it in an
Uses for your record bowl
A record bowl makes a perfect gift because it's so
cheap and easy and it's made by your own fair hands so
-it's a gift that comes from the heart. You can fill it with
knick-knacks and give it to a pal for her birthday or if
she's feeling down because she's split up with her

boyfriend again.
A record bowl
makes a great plant pot.
Drill some more holes
in the bottom for
drainage, though...
A record bowl also
doubles up as a great
picture fame. If you su-
perglue something in-
teresting to the inside
bottom of the bowl like
a troll doll or a windup
toy you now have a 3-D
picture and vinyl frame.
Just attach to your wall
so it hangs like a gor-
geous vinyl flower!

Five Steps

To Garden

Worthy Compost

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing. Inc.
Compost is a neat subject, because it exemplifies
the renewal process in an easy to observe way Conm-
posting is the natural process carried out by microor-
ganisms, insects, anti worms that break down com-
mon waste into nutrient rich soil.
Only certain waste items can go in a compost bin.
Fruit and veggie peels
Tea leaves, coffee grounds, and egg shells
Prunings and trimmings
Grass cuttings
Hair ,
Evergreen clippings
Old plants and flowers
Plant stems
Straw and hay
Meat or fish
Cooked food
Animal waste
Man made material
Diseased or fertilized plants

A compost bin should be wire mesh, and should
be placed on bare soil or grass, so that worms and
bugs can get in while moisture drains out. Do' not
place the compost bin on concrete or paved areas.
Now that the compost bin has been selected, there
are very specific steps that have to be taken to make
great. rich compost.
Step 1 Layer the bin with green waste and
brown waste. One layer of vegetable peels, one layer
of sawdust, one layer of grass cuttings, one layer of
dead leaves, and so on.
Step 2 Keep the layers damp! Don't soak the
compost bin, but just enough to moisten the layers.
Step 3 Turn the heap to make sure that enough
air gets to the material to break it down.
Step 4 When the compost has cooled down and
turned dark brown (it will get hot, a sure sign of de-
composition), it is ready to use.
Step 5 The compost can be added to a garden to
help it grow. Compost is an effective, and very envi-
ronmentally friendly version of fertilizer:

Proud To Support All

Efforts Made To Keep

All Of Madison County

So, What

Happens When

It Gets

By Jessica Higginbotham
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Everybody says to recycle. Recycling is good for
the environment. Okay, recycling is a plus.. But seri-
ously, where does it go and what happens to all the
stuff chucked in the blue recycling bin?
All of those recyclable materials have to be sorted
first. Glass is sorted by color (clear, green, or brown)
and plastic by type (HDPE, PET, PVC), while paper
and aluminum don't need too much of the sorting.
Then, once the materials are sorted, they're
shipped off to a factory to be cleaned. Glass is
washed and crushed into callet, plastic is washed and
baled, paper gets a bath to remove inks and glues, and
aluminum is baled, crushed, shredded and cleaned.
Whew! What a work out!
Now that everything is nice and shiny, the real
process begins. Glass cullet is melted down and made
into new glass bottles or asphalt tarmac. Most of the
glass recycled goes to road crews. People drive across
it every day.
Plastics get chopped into chips, reprocessed, and
melted intd bottles, anoraks, sweaters. carpets, popes,
and garden furniture. It takes 23 plastic bottles to
make one fleece sweater.
Paper gets .injected between mesh sheets and
dried, making brand new recycled paper. Big rolls of
paper are cut down into smaller rolls and then sheets.
This newspaper is printed on recycled paper.
Aluminum is melted into big blocks, rolled into
sheets, and made into new cans. all in about six
weeks. In a matter of just a few weeks, the same can
is back on the shelf, ready to be recycled again.
Is it worth it? Of course! The energy saved by re-
cycling one glass bottle will power a 100-watt bulb for
an hour, power a computer for 25 minutes, or power a
color TV for 20 minutes.
Glass is 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled
with no loss of property
One ton of paper made from recycled pulp saves
17 trees.
Recycling a single plastic bottle can conserve
enough energy to light a 60-watt bulb for six hours. It
takes 450 years for one plastic bottle to biodegrade.
A recycled aluminum can saves enough energy to
power a TV for three hours. Aluminum, like glass.
can be recycled over and over without any loss of

The North Florida
Workforce Development
Board, in conjunction
with Employment Con-
nections, wrapped up the
2007 Job Shadowing Pro-
ject on June 7 with a cele-
bration banquet. The
event was held at Divine
Events in Madison.
This Project was
based- on the National
Groundhog Job Shadow-
ing Project, where count-
less working profession-
als see their "student
shadows." This year the
10th Annual National Job
Shadow Day kicked off
year-round job shadowing

activities around the U.S.
and even the world!
This year, the local
project was open to 11th
grade students. The
students were required to
write an essay describing
what profession they
wanted to shadow and
why. All of the students
who wrote an essay were
chosen and were able to
go to a place of business
and shadow a profession-
alfor a day. The students
had a great time and
learned a lot about their
chosen fields. It helped
the students determine
whether or not the profes-

sion that they chose is
right for them.
The students who par-
ticipated are:

means that classes have
one teacher who teaches
all subjects and students
remain in one classroom.
In the past, third through
fifth grades were depart-
mentalized classrooms,
meaning they had a differ-
ent teacher for each sub-
ject and moved from class-
room to classroom to study
those subjects. While be-
ing departmentalized,
third through fifth graders
were losing approximately
30 minutes of learning
time a day, due to switch-
ing from classroom to
Now, third through
fifth grades will be self-
contained once again, al-
lowing students to focus
on their studies instead of
being distracted by switch-
ing classrooms so often..
The average school day
will begin with a reading
class the first 90 minutes
of the school day. This will
be followed by one or two
other subjects (no specific
one); teachers will have ap-

At the banquet, the

Everyone is cautioned
to vaccinate their pets -
but some people don't
heed the warnings. Com-
mon excuses are that in-

don't really, need a cer-

All pets, unless kept
in a sterile bubble for
their entire lives, are sus-
ceptible to disease. '
Puppies should re-

at six to eight weeks of
age, and then boosters
yearly afterwards. Cats

Florida's Drought Affects Fish, Wildlife Too

Florida is experiencing
one of its driest years on
The U.S. Drought Moni-
tor has the entire area rated
from "moderate drought" to
"extreme" in South Florida.
Water restrictions are in
place for many parts of the
state. In South Florida, a
very dry 2006 (third driest
on record for the state as a
whole) and a dry beginning
to 2007 had Lake Okee-
chobee at a record low of
8.89 feet on May 31. It should
be at 13.23 feet.
It's not just the state's
human residents who are
affected. The fish and
wildlife are feeling the ef-
fects of low water levels
According to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) of-
ficials, there are both posi-
tive and negative effects for
the state's wildlife during
'this time.
The cycle of floods and
droughts that Florida expe-
riences is natural, normal
and recurring. Florida's
ecosystems are dependent
on this cycle to maintain
healthy fish and wildlife
populations. The long-term
benefits of droughts and
floods often exceed the
short-term negative effects.
"Short-term droughts
probably are more benefi-
cial to freshwater fish and
their habitat than they are
harmful," said Fred Cross,
regional freshwater fish-
eries biologist in the FWC's
regional office in Panama
The drought exposes
lake bottoms and dries up
the muck that has accumu-
lated. Desirable vegetation
expands into -deepwater
portions of lakes and rivers,
and seeds germinate on ex-
posed lake bottoms. Howev-
-er, during a drought, inva-
sive and exotic plants such
as hy1drilla can become
more of a problem. It also
provides the opportunity to
use prescribed burning to
reduce vegetation in the
wetlands. This creates open

water habitat, which helps
water quality and reduces
the potential for wildfires,
according to Cross.
"Droughts can increase
the effectiveness of planned
habitat enhancement pro-
jects," said Dale Jones, sec-
tion leader for the FWC's Di-
vision of Freshwater Fish-
eries Management.
While water levels are
low, boat ramps, docks, sea-
walls and other structures
can be repaired. Marine
species are able to go much
farther upstream in some
river systems, providing ad-
ditional fishing opportuni-
ties to freshwater anglers.
Droughts can reduce
the aquifer level, allowing
sink holes to form and drain
lakes. Salinity increases in
tidal creeks may stress fish,
and low water levels can
trap fish, resulting in fish
kills from low dissolved
oxygen, according to biolo-
During these times of
low water levels, boaters
need to exercise extreme
caution to prevent striking
an underwater object or the
bottom. At the same, .time,
no matter how shallow the
water, there always is a
drowning hazard. FWC offi-
cials strongly encourage
boaters always to wear their
life jackets while on the wa-
There also may be ac-
cess problems due to boat.
ramps being out of water,
and steep drop-offs at pow-
er-loading holes at end of
boat ramps that are usable
at current water levels.
According to Allan
Woodward, research admin-
istrator at the FWC's
Gainesville Wildlife Re-
search .Lab, "Droughts can
be stressful on most aquatic
wildlife, including alliga-
As water levels drop, al-
ligators fare reasonably
well because of the tempo-
rary concentration of prey
items (fish, turtles and
birds) into remaining water,
although there may be in-
creased cannibalism.

"Under prolonged
droughts, such as the one
we are now experiencing,
alligators may be forced to
move in search of water.
Traveling over dry land can
cause increased mortality
from motor vehicles as well
as dehydration. Smaller al-
ligators may fall prey to
predators during these
searches for water," Wood-
ward said.
Movements across land
usually will result in more
frequent interactions with
humans, and alligators may
get trapped in areas from
which they cannot readily
escape. This results in an
increase in nuisance alliga-
tor complaints.
"We have found that
there is no increase in the
number of attacks on hu-
mans during droughts.
When moving over dry
land, alligators are awk-
ward and out of their ele-
ment. They merely want to
find water, which provides
them with security and
food," Woodward said.
Native reptiles and am-
phibians are adapted to pe-
riddic droughts and occa-
sional wildfires. Droughts
and fires can cause elevated
mortality of reptiles and
amphibians, but most popu-
lations recover quickly
when rainfall returns to
normal levels.
"In fact, some reptiles
and amphibians depend on
fires to maintain their de-
sired habitats," Woodward
said. "Snakes normally are
not as much of a problem
during droughts as during
rapid water level increases
after droughts."
For marine species,;
there is good and bad news
during a drought.
For oysters, the in-
creased salinity in bays and
estuaries means an in-
creased risk of parasite in-
fection, according to Bill
Arnold, research scientist,
at the FWC's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
in St. Petersburg.
Since most of the suc-
cessful populations of bay
scallops occur offshore,
they, aren't as strongly in-
fluenced by'freshwater in-
puts. Florida droughts usu-
ally occur in spring, and the
scallops spawn in fall or
For the upland species,
there are also pros and cons
to the drought. According to
Scott Johns, district biolo-
gist from the FWC's Olustee
Field Office, hunters may
observe smaller and fewer
yearling deer this fall as the,
drought in North Florida
occurred during the time
when the fawns are born.
"This made life more
difficult on these fawns and
their mothers that need ex-
tra water in their diets
while nursing," Johns said.
The tips and shoots of
growing plants is a large
part of deer diets during the
spring and summer.
"This is a favorite deer
food, and without the pro-
tein from these plants, fawn
growth will be delayed and
even antler development in

bucks could be stunted this
year," Johns said. "Plant
production is very limited
during droughts, especially
those favored by wildlife
such as blackberry, palmet-
to berry, mushrooms and
low bush blueberries.
Plants shut down new
growth during periods of
drought and conserve any
water available for sur-
New growth is put off
until favorable conditions
return. Oaks produce fewer
acorns or may not produce
acorns at all during periods
of drought.
Birds aregenerally un-
affected by local drought as
they can move easily to find
water. However, since this
drought has occurred dur-
ing nesting time, many
nests could have been aban-
doned, and are at a greater
risk of predation. Bird
nests are especially at risk
during droughts mainly due
to the increased risk of
wildfire. This would impact
birds that nest on the
ground, such as turkey and
quail, the most, according
to Johns.
Research has shown
bobwhite quail reproduc-
.tion to be negatively affect-
ed by hot, dry periods. Al-
though the drought in
North Florida has been
very dry, it was relatively
cool, so quail reproduction
may have not been severely
"Catastrophic events
are also more likely during
drought years. Large-scale,
fast moving wildfires can
kill and displace many
species, especially, those
that are unable to move
quickly. Because birds are
very. sensitive to air quality,
they can be killed by smoke
inhalation, even when they.
are, many miles from the
fire," he said.
However, even fires can
produce benefits. Wildfires,
which occur more frequent-
ly during drought periods,-
can open up dense, tangled
areas that have become
overgrown and useless to
many species.
Gopher tortoises are
somewhat adapted to life in
a dry environment. These
animals are able to con-
serve water in several ways.
"But the prolonged
drought we have seen in
North Florida this spring
could have significant im-
pacts on the hatchlings and
juvenile tortoises," Johns
Survival during a
drought is easier on larger
animals than smaller ones.
For example, white-tailed
deer and bears are able' to
cover large amounts of ter-
ritory in search of water.
"And as" cruel as it may
sound, the drought is one of
nature's ways of eliminat-
ing the weaker, less vigor-
ous individuals of a species.
Nature is continually elimi-
nating such animals from
the population. The spread
of disease and parasites
can decrease when these
animals are gone," Johns

FWC Moving Ahead With

Species Reclassifications
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) voted Wednesday to move ahead with
reclassification of four imperiled species.
Concerning the peregrine falcon, Commissioners
agreed to a staff proposal to assemble a biological re-
view panel to evaluate whether the bird warrants re-
classification from its endangered species status.
The review is the first phase .in the reclassification
process. The scientists who will conduct the review
include James A. Rodgers of the FWC, Brian A. Mill-
sap ,of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and Ken
Meyer of Avian Research and Conservation Institute
in Gainesville.
Commissioners also voted to proceed with the fi-
nal phase of the process to reclassify manatees from
endangered to threatened, gopher tortoises from
species of special concern to threatened, and Panama
City crayfish from species of special concern to
threatened. The final action will be adoption of a
management plan for each species, and that will take
place at a future FWC meeting, possibly in September
except for the crayfish, which may happen early next

FWC Searches For Cause Of

East Coast Seabird Die-Off

The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has re-
ceived reports of more
than 200 dead or sick
greater shearwaters, a
gull-like bird, since Satur-
day along Florida's east
coast. The birds have been
found from Hobe Sound in
Martin' County to South
Ponte Vedra Beach in St.
Johns County.
Local wildlife rehabili-
tators report re-
ceiving numerous
emaciated and de-
hydrated birds as
well. FWC biolo-
gists are examin-
ing the dead birds
to investigate the
cause of this die- .
with FWC's Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute
are calling the die-off of
birds significant and have
collected some of the birds
for testing. Initial necrop-
sy results are not defini-
tive; however, preliminary
findings indicate starva-
tion during the migration
process played a role. Ad-
ditional test results are
'"As only one species
appears to be affected and
the sick and dead birds
have similar symptoms,
we believe the seabirds are

suffering from the same
ailment," said Dan Wolf,
research biologist. "In
2005, a similar, but. less se-
vere shearwater die-off oc-
According the Peter-
son Field Guide for East-
ern .Birds, shearwaters
spend their' lives at sea,
well offshore in the open
ocean except for when
they breed, nest and rear
young. Greater shearwa-
ters breed pri-
marily on Tristan
da Cunha Island
in the South At-
lantic and wan-
der the sea north
to Greenland and
Iceland, and back.
Storms at sea can
weaken the birds
and cause them to
become sick, dehydrated
and die. .
The public can assist
the investigation by re-
porting 'sick, injured or
dead birds online at
MyFWC.com/bird." The
public is asked not to han-
dle birds and to contact a
,local wildlife rehabilita-
tive facility for assistance
with sick or injured birds.
The online wild bird mor-
tality database is a cooper-
ative' program between
FWC and the Florida De-
partment of Health to
. monitor bird health.
