Rudy Hamrick'

Inducted Into


Hall Of Fame

Rudy Hamrick was inducted into the Florida Agriculture Hall of
Fame on Tuesday evening, Feb. 9.
Rudy Hamrick was a major force in North Florida agriculture for
nearly three decades. As director of the Madison County Extension of-
fice from 1951 to 1977, his impact on the county's economy was dramat-
ic. When Hamrick first came to Madison, the tobacco industry was
declining all across Northwest Florida. Farm incomes were shrinking,
along with the population in rural areas. But Hamrick was determined
to try to reverse these trends. Under his leadership, Madison County be-
came one of Florida's leading agricultural counties, a top producer of
swine, poultry, and cattle. Hamrick was instrumental in developing the
county's thriving peach industry, and by the mid-1970s there were over
2,000 acres in production.
Hamrick was born in 1922 on a farm in Monticello, to a father who
divided his time between farming and dentistry He attended Monticel-
lo High School and the University of Florida, where he graduated with
a bachelor's degree in agriculture in 1944 and a master's degree in agri-
culture in 1950. He taught agriculture at vocational schools

The Lee Town Council held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new waste-
water system on Monday, Feb. 8, at 4 p.m. at the water tower located on Dale
Leslie Drive.
According to information provided by Mittauer & Associates, consulting
engineers, "In 2005, envisioning the need for the development of a wastewater
system for the future, the Lee Town Council applied for grand funding through
a Small Disadvantaged Communities Development Grant."

As Town

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
Sarah Anderson has joined the Town of Lee as
its new Town Manager.
The personable new manager, she was formerly
the secretary at the First Baptist Church in Lee,
where she and her husband, Jimmie, a retired elec-
trician are members.
The Andersons moved to Lee last year from
Jacksonville and immediately immersed them-
selves into the community, helping the victims of
the April flooding.
While in Jacksonville, Sarah had worked as an
associate manager with Prudential Insurance,
working with global operations on a real-time basis
for call management.
When asked if she and her husband belonged to
any local civic clubs, she replied, "Not at this time.
All of our community involve-
ment has been with the church."
When asked what the most challenging part of
her new job is, Sarah quickly
replied, "Getting quickly up to
speed on the wastewater situa-
Sarah was equally as quick

her new job: "Meeting the com-
Originally hired on
Jan. 19 and stepping into
the role on Jan. 21,
Sarah said that she
felt that her first Lee
Town Council meet-
ing as the new
manager went
very well.
"I look for-
ward to the op-
portunity to get
more involved
with the communi-
ty and the different
opportunities (the job
as town manager) af-
fords me," she said.

Abbie Gail's

Great Memory
I have read the books. I have seen the videotapes
and DVDs. I have even gone to the classes, but some-
one with an innate ability to win friends and influ-
ence people always manages to trump me.
The person I am speaking of is my sister Abbie.
Although she is mentally challenged, Abbie has a
memory like an elephant. If she has ever known
anyone she doesn't forget the person.
The other night, my family and I were eating at
a restaurant. When we got through, Abbie got up
from the table we were sitting at and walked up to
some people sitting in a booth near us. I went to get
her and Abbie had already begun visiting with long-
lost friends.
I had no idea who the people were, but Abbie
did. They told me that they recognized Abbie from
Gretchen Everhart, the school for mentally and
physically challenged children that Abbie had at-
tended in Tallahassee. Although it had been over 20
years, it was obvious that Abbie Gail recognized
them also.
As we were leaving, I asked Abbie, "Did you rec-
ognize those people?" and Abbie did a dance.
Abbie had been able to do, with her limited abil-
ities, what some people with fully functional brains
are never able to do. She has managed to be a "peo-
ple person."
Abbie has a confidence in herself that I find
lacking in myself. She enjoys being around others in
situations that I sometimes find myself uncomfort-
I believe that Abbie realizes what it means to be
a child of the King. She realizes that she can have
anything as His child. Many times, even Christians
get lost in ourselves and don't realize that Christ
wants us to be joyful.
One other thing that Abbie can trump me in and
I'm sure that it won't surprise any of you is a physi-
cal contest. As I challenged her to a footrace to the
car, she agreed and took off running. She ran past
the car. I called her back and said, "If I hadn't been
a good sport, I could have beaten you to the car." Ab-
bie raised her right arm, held her hand out and
dropped it, as if to say, "You're crazy You know you

Recently your motto has not lived up to its claim

yellow journalism as has Channel 6 I've already
told them so.
Neither one of you know the other side of the

sure that now, since both of you have revived a sev-
en year old case in such a sensational way, there will
be more to come.

years, never had his picture in the paper. He is nei-

She promptly tore it down and said since they had
no right to display it, she would tear down any more

fact, from the minister himself. I wonder what Madi-

Defy The Odds
(Part 5 in the series "Small
Steps to Health and Wealth")
Remember when you were a small child and
your parent told you not to do something? Usually
that was all it took to motivate you to do it anyway.
Acts of defiance are how children begin to assert
themselves. It is their way of rebelling against
parental restrictions. Dr. Barbara O'Neil says that
defiant children generally perceive the payoffs to
their behavior as power and control over others and
the satisfaction that comes with successfully break-
ing the rules.
Acts of defiance can, however, be used in a posi-
tive way to improve your health and or increase
your wealth. One way is to simply defy someone and
make a recommended behavior change. If others
say you'll never be able to do something, like lose
weight, exercise, repay debt or save money, defy
them and take the necessary action to prove them
wrong. For added motivation, give yourself a dead-
line with a reward for accomplishing it. You may
even choose to challenge a friend to compete with
you to see who ends up ahead by the deadline.
There are many similarities between expert rec-
ommendations to challenge a defiant child and defi-
ance to improve a healthy and/or financial behavior.
Step one is to decide which current behavior you
want to change and the preferred behavior you even-
tually want to see. Step two is to determine the
smallest sign of change. Step three is to catch some-
one doing something good and acknowledge it as an
incentive to continue making progress.
Defy the odds and don't let yourself become a
statistic with regard to issues like diabetes, obesity,
overspending or bankruptcy Not sure where to get
started? Think about these startling health and per-
sonal finance statistics that are worth defying:
Health Statistics to Defy
Almost 2/3 of Americans are overweight,
obese or extremely obese. An obsess person spend
$900 more a year in medical expenses than a person
of normal weight.
American adult calorie intake has risen from
1,854 to 2.002 calories per day over the past 20 years.
This 148 calorie per day increase equals a weight
gain of 15 pounds per year.
More than 600% of American adults do not get
the recommended 30 minutes of physical activity a
day and 25% aren't physically active at all.
Money Statistics to Defy
The average U.S. household carries about a
$9,300 credit card balance.
By one estimate, about 700% of Americans are
living paycheck to paycheck and have no money left
over after paying basic monthly expenses.
About 12 of all bankruptcies in 2001 were trig-
gered by illness or medical debts.
Motivated enough now to defy the statistics?
Start by setting one goal for health, one for wealth
and challenge yourself to defy the statistics. For
more information on money management and eat-
ing for health, contact the Madison County Exten-
sion Service.

sion Madison County is an Equal Employment Op-
portunity Affirmative Action Employer authorized to

in Lake and Wakulla counties be-
fore joining the Extension Ser-
vice as an assistant farm agent in
Lake County. In 1951, he was ap-
pointed director of the Extension
office in Madison County.
In 1964 Hamrick formulated a
10-year plan for agricultural pro-
duction in Madison County. The
goal was to double agricultural
income. Committees were estab-
lished for each major agricultural
product. Members of these com-
mittees joined state and national
associations and worked to im-
prove both production and mar-
keting. By 1974, Madison County
had become the largest swine pro-
ducer in Florida and one of the
state's largest cattle producers. A
peach industry had been estab-
lished, while the poultry industry
had quadrupled in size to become
the county's single largest in-
come agribusiness. In the end
Hamrick's 10-year plan exceeded
even the most optimistic expecta-
tions. It didn't just double agri-
cultural income; it tripled it.
Agriculture was the main in-
dustry in Madison County, but for
many years the county lacked ad-
equate facilities for agricultural
meetings and other activities.
Recognizing the need, Hamrick
successfully lobbied the Legisla-

ture for funds to construct a facil-
ity that would provide a central-
ized location for all
agriculture-related offices in
Madison County. Completed in
1960, the Madison County Agri-
cultural Building housed the
county Extension office, Agricul-
tural Stabilization and Conserva-
tion Service (ASCS) offices, and
farm forestry offices. It was also
the site of Farm Bureau meet-
ings, 4-H meetings, feeder pig
sales, quarter horse sales, and the
annual North Florida Livestock
Show and Sale, one of the largest
livestock sales in Florida.
Hamrick always said the key
to his success as a county agent
was "liking people" and liking to
help them. He believed in the
power of education and in help-
ing farmers help themselves. He
spent most of his time and energy
out in the fields, offering techni-
cal advice about both production
and marketing. He knew how im-
portant it was to help farmers
stay informed about the latest
agricultural research findings,
and he was known for his excel-
lent teaching skills. Hamrick was
the first Extension agent ever to
be granted the status of full pro-
fessor at the University of Flori-
da, and he was also chosen by the

university to train new agents.
It's not surprising that Madi-
son County's 4-H Club flourished
under the leadership of this gift-
ed teacher. The program's popu-
larity surged as it was expanded
to cover a new diversity of sub-
ject areas, including wildlife
management and entomology, as
well as home economics, cattle
production, and showmanship.
Hamrick lobbied tirelessly for
the improvement and enlarge-
ment of Madison's Cherry Lake
facility, an outdoor classroom
used primarily for 4-H summer
camp programs. With its rustic
cabins, open-air pavilion, and
lush natural areas, Camp Cherry
Lake continues to provide chil-
dren with an opportunity for
hands-on learning in the context
of the real world.
Hamrick was recognized as
one of the best Extension direc-
tors in the country. In 1964 he re-
ceived the Distinguished Service
Award, the highest honor given
by the National Association of
County Agricultural Agents. In
1971 he became the first recipient
of the SHARE Award for Excel-
lence in Extension presented by
the University of Florida. That
year he was also named the na-
tional winner of the Ciba-Geigy

Leadership Recognition Award.
The Florida Association of
County Agricultural Agents hon-
ored him with the Search for Ex-
cellence Farm Income Award in
1973, and in 1975 he received an
Outstanding Service Award from
the Florida Farm Bureau.
For Hamrick, being an agent
was not simply a 9-to-5 job. He
was often at his office late into
the evenings, and he attended
many meetings at night and on
the weekends. He was a member
of the National Peach Council,
the Peach Growers Association,
the Madison County Farm Bu-
reau, and the Florida Association
of Agricultural Agents. He was
an organizing member of the
Madison County Swine Produc-
ers, the Madison County Milk
Producers, the Madison County
Cattlemen's Association, the
North Florida Livestock Associa-
tion, the Georgia-Florida Breed-
ing Association, the State Feeder
Pig Sale Committee, and the State
Hog Cholera Eradication Com-

The wheels were then set in motion and by May
2009, Lee had been awarded an American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) Grant. The award
was only one of nine such grants in the state. The
town was awarded $4,249,000 in grant and loan fund-
ing to construct the project.
The project will consist of construction of near-
ly 15 miles of pipe, including approximately 28,000
linear feet of 8-inch and 10-inch gravity sewers, 100
precast manholes, two wastewater pump stations, 30
grinder pump stations, 46,000 linear feet of 3-inch, 4-
inch and 8-inch force mains and related valves, fit-
tings, sewer services, restoration work and other
associated work.
The project will be funded by money made avail-
able by the ARRA, which requires that all iron, steel
and manufactured goods used in the project are pro-
duced in the United States.
Total breakdown of the funding for the project
*DEP Small Community Wastewater Facilities
Grant, $104,000
*State Legislative Appropriation, $400,000
*ARRA Grant (75 %), $3,176,000
*ARRA Loan (250% @2.08%), $1,073,000
*Anticipated CDBG Sewer Hook-ups and

Rain Doesn' t Keep People Away

From Kelsi' s Hot Chocolate Sale

By Jacob Bembry
Greene Publishing, Inc.
A cold and rainy day did not stop
the community from going out and
supporting Kelsi's Fifth Annual Hot
Chocolate Sale on Saturday, Jan. 16, at
Scott Realty in Greenville.
Kelsi Reams initiated the idea for
the fundraiser when her youngest sis-
ter, Abby, was diagnosed with cystic fi-
brosis. All proceeds from the sale go
to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
Despite the dreary day, people
braved the rain to donate over $1,800
or the CFE
"We want to say a special thanks
to Roy and Debe Scott for the use of
their office and to Mrs. Betty Jo Bur-
nette for her delicious baked goods
that she donated," said Kathy Reams.

Kathy and her husband, Joe, are the
parents of Kelsi, Chloe and Abby
According to the
Cystic Fibrosis Foundation:
Cystic fibrosis is an inherited
chronic disease that affects the lungs
and digestive system of about 30,000
children and adults in the United
States (70,000 worldwide). A defective
gene and its protein product cause the
body to produce unusually thick,
sticky mucus that clogs the lungs and
leads to life-threatening lung infec-
tions; and obstructs the pancreas and
stops natural enzymes from helping
the body break down and absorb food.
In the 1950s, few children with cys-
tic fibrosis lived to attend elementary
school. Today, advances in research
and medical treatments have further

enhanced and extended life for chil-
dren and adults with CE Many people
with the disease can now expect to live
into their 30s, 40s and beyond.

Symptoms of Cystic Fibrosis
People with CF can have a variety
of symptoms, including:
very salty-tasting skin;
persistent coughing, at times with
frequent lung infections;
wheezing or shortness of breath;
poor growth/weight gain in spite
of a good appetite; and
frequent greasy, bulky stools or dif-
ficulty in bowel movements.
About 1,000 new cases of cystic fi-
brosis are diagnosed each year.
More than 70% of patients are di-
agnosed by age two.
More than 45% of the CF patient
population is age 18 or older.
The predicted median age of sur-
vival for a person with CF is more
than 37 years.

The Complete Count Census Committee is made up of appointed and volun-
teer members who are dedicated to creating a comfortable and successful cen-
sus in Madison County. Pictured left to right are: Melissa Hinote, partnership
specialist for Madison County, and Deloris Jones and Pat Lightcap, executive
leadership of the Complete Count Committee.
By Michael Curtis
Greene Publishing, Inc.
The Complete Count Census Committee for Madison County met Feb. 8
to discuss and launch actions supporting National Census Day, which is
April 1. From now until then, staff and volunteers will be meeting with or-
ganizations throughout Madison County to ensure the word gets out about
the census. The role of the census is extremely important to the county and
throughout the country, as huge amounts of funding and political districts
are based on the results.
Unfortunately, not everybody likes the idea of the census, and many are
mistrusting of it. To eliminate these obstacles, the committee is launching
a variety of campaigns designed to increase understanding and decrease re-
sistance to join the effort. From T-shirts to newsletters to faith-based in-
volvement, volunteers from throughout the county are joining hundreds of
census workers to ensure participation exceeds the dismal results of Cen-
sus 2000, where participation was only 48 percent.
Fortunately, the officials, workers and community volunteers in charge
of Census 2010 understand the resistance. So, to make sure everybody has
no worries, the government has passed laws to guarantee privacy and en-
sure there are absolutely no consequences to filling out the simple, 10-ques-
tion form. In fact, the law will seal census records for 72 years, like
top-secret government documents.
Of course, many may take a little more time and effort to believe it's
safe and necessary, and that's the mission of the Complete Count Commit-
tee. Working closely with the schools, churches and other community part-
ners to get their information to all residents, their message is clear:
everybody matters. And the "Count Me In, 2010!" campaign urges all to take
On Feb. 22 at 11 a.m., the committee will be meeting again at the Court-
house Annex, in the county commission meeting room. Of course, the pub-
lic is welcome and urged to attend. The Census continues to look for
workers and volunteers, and this meeting can provide useful information on
contributing to this worthwhile cause.

Camp Meeting Tragedy

Sumpter Mitchell Kills His Wife, Josephine

Reprinted from the November 4, 1909 Enterprise-Recorder

Disproves Statement

The camp meeting
ground of the negroes,
two miles north on the
Valdosta Southern, was
the scene of a tragedy
late Sunday afternoon,
in which Josephine
Mitchell lost her life in-
stantly by reason of a
pistol ball which pene-
trated her heart, fired, it
is charged, by her hus-
band, Sumpter Mitchell,
who now lies in jail
awaiting a legal investi-
gation of the charge of
murdering his wife.
For about ten days,
the camp meeting has
been in progress and it
has been attended by
large crowds of the col-
ored people without, so
far as we have been able
to learn, the slightest
disorder or confusion.
On Sunday, Sumpter
and Josephine, with
their small son, Joe,
went out to the meeting.

During the day, Sumpter
indulged rather freely in
liquor and, by nightfall,
was considerably under
the influence of drink.
Sober, Sumpter is a
pretty good negro, hard-
working and a reliable,
but drunk, he is alto-
gether a different per-
Calling to his wife
and son, they walked off
from the crowd and
started north on the rail-
road track. When they
had gone but a short dis-
tance, a single pistol
shot was heard, followed
by a woman's scream
and bystanders went to-
ward the sounds, finding
Sumpter across the body
of his dead wife.
He claimed the shot
which caused her death
was from a raining
standing nearby or from
someone in the dark-
ness, but the boy who is

only 9 or 10 years old,
stepped to the railroad
embankment and picked
up the pistol from where
Sumpter had placed or
thrown it, immediately
after the shooting, and
handed it to Deputy
Hunter Horton, who was
quickly on the scene,
telling him it was his fa-
ther's pistol.
Upon searching the
clothing of Sumpter, a
number of rifle car-
tridges were found and it
is thought by the officers
that it was intention, af-
ter killing his wife, to
make his escape and use,
if necessary, these car-
tridges to prevent his

The Bowling Family will appear
on Friday, Feb. 19, at Yogi Bear Camp-
ground in Madison. Doors open at 6
p.m. The concert begins at 7 p.m.
There will be a $10 donation at the
door. The concert is sponsored by
WGSG Radio in Mayo.
The Bowling Family combines tal-
ent, sincerity and experience to create
a memorable concert experience.
Their goal for the evening is to
usher in the presence of God and cele-
brate the Christian message. They feel
privileged and honored to enjoy the
freedom to honor Christ with any and
all of their abilities.
The trio consists of Mike Bowling
and his wife, Kelly and alto Terah
Crabb Penhollow. They bring you their
stories and songs in a way that is rem-
iniscent of days gone by To watch
them perform reminds us of a time
when "all night singing" were the
norm, and folks lined up early to visit
with the singers and musicians. As in
most things, musical styles come full
circle. What is old is new, and what is
new is old!! Musically, Mike, Kelly and
Terah make us realize this. Somehow
they have created a sound that is as re-
freshing as the trio sounds of the ear-
ly 70s. Mike has often been referred to
as the vocal stylist of the day; however,
the completion is so obvious with Kel-
ly and Terah by his side. History will
note that they have been true to the ex-
cellence of their ability without di-
minishing or distancing the listener.
The Bowling Family are no
strangers to the Christian music
world, having a long list of accom-
plishments during their vocal careers.
While Mike began singing and playing
piano at a very young age, he had a
very impressive musical beginning at
only 16 years old; a two-year span with
the legendary LeFevres. Mike then
went on to earn a degree in Respirato-
ry Therapy before returning to the
music world. In 1995, he joined the
New Hinsons, a perfect blend consid-
ering Mike's vocals are very distinc-
tively similar to those of the late
Kenny Hinson. After lending his vocal
abilities to several of their high-chart-
ing songs, Mike went on to join anoth-
er successful family group, the Perrys.
While with the Perrys, Mike was
featured on songs such as "God Sent
Angels," "By Faith I Can Touch Him
Now," "Not Even A Stone," "Re-
deemed," "When He Spoke," and many
After Mike's marriage to Kelly,
Kelly sang with her family.. .the Crabb
Family, Mike spent the next six years
traveling as a soloist garnering a
tremendous amount of success. In
fact, he has been noted as the first
Southern Gospel soloist to achieve
back-to-back number one positions on
the Singing News Top 80 charts. Kelly
spent more than 15 years with her fam-
ily, The Crabb Family. During that
time they were the recipients of three
GRAMMY nominations, 11 Dove
Awards, 16 number one songs and nu-
merous other accomplishments. Kel-

ly's unmistakable voice could be heard
on the family's hits "Don't You Wanna
Go," "Good Day," "Jesus Will Do What
You Can't," "Trail Of Tears," as well
as singing harmonies on all the oth-
ers. After the birth of the Bowling's
third child, Kelly realized it was time
to join her husband on stage as Mike &
Kelly Bowling.
In August 2009, Terah Crabb Pen-
hollow officially joined Mike and Kelly
on stage full-time and the group
changed their name to the Bowling
Family. Terah previously traveled
with her sister, Kelly, and her three
brothers as the Crabb Family Terah is
known for being soft spoken off stage,
but an amazing talent onstage. She is
most known for her lead vocals on
"He'll Make A Way," "Traveling On,"
"Jesus In A Song" and "I've Come to
Take You Home." Terah sings with an
instantly recognizable sweet anoint-
ing. Terah and her husband Jonathon

The Bowling Family is excited to
be in ministry together. They know
that all roads have led to this time and

they are aware that much work must
be done. The world is in need of the

to reach the masses, once again is wit-
nessed. The careers and ministries

Sometimes Wildlife Needs A Little Help

By Chairman Rodney Barreto
Sometimes wildlife needs a little
help, and sometimes it needs a lot.
Things that affect wildlife can be man-
made or natural or a combination of
both. Sometimes it's best to let nature
run its course; other times the situa-
tion requires human intervention.
An example of the latter is the
cold snap last month that took a toll on
several imperiled species the Ameri-
can crocodile, Florida manatee and
sea turtles. Obviously, this was a nat-
ural, yet uncommon occurrence. Cold
snaps that packed this kind of punch
most recently occurred in 1989 and
1977. The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) and
its state and federal partners were
working feverishly to save as many an-
imals as they could. Authorized non-
profit and volunteer groups worked
equally hard. Other people, too, when
asked by the FWC, jumped in, eagerly
doing what they could to help.
It was something to see this cal-
iber of compassion and enthusiasm.
Countless business, agencies and vol-
unteers braved the harsh conditions to
rescue these rare and beloved animals.
Helping wildlife doesn't end once
a situation such as this occurs. A help-
ing hand can be in the form of just be-
ing alert and slowing down for
manatees, sea turtles and other
species, and not just because law en-
forcement officers may issue a citation
for speeding in slow-speed zones. We

do it because we Floridians tradition-
ally love the natural treasures that en-
rich our lifestyle.
Slowing down and being alert in
Florida panther territory could pre-
vent an accident that could cost one of
the endangered cats its life. This past
year, 14 Florida panthers died on the
state's roadways. Panthers are most
active between dusk and dawn.
Though the number of these animals
has increased to approximately 100,
the species remains in danger of van-
ishing forever, and the untimely death
of a single one of them, nudges the
species closer to the gaping jaws of ex-
Other critters on the roadways
could use a break as well.
Florida black bears are attracted
to garbage, barbecue grills, bird feed-
ers and pet food left outside. Once
bears discover a recurring source of
food other than what nature provides
them in their natural environment,
they often return to the source repeat-
edly and become a nuisance. Unfortu-
nately, when a bear becomes a
nuisance, it poses a threat to people,
and, too often, the FWC must eutha-
nize it. Fifteen or 20 minutes and a lit-
tle bit of effort to put away attractants
is the helping hand that that ensures
survival of Florida's black bears.
We all know that littering is ille-
gal. Lots of bad things can happen to
wildlife because of it. A bag of fast-
food leftovers thrown on the side of

the road brings wildlife close to the
road and in danger of being hit by a
vehicle. Discarded monofilament fish-
ing line has injured and killed mana-
tees, sea turtles, birds, fish and
numerous other species. It happens
every day
Did you know the release of heli-
um balloons (nine or more) is illegal?
What goes up, must come down, and
very often, lighter-than-air balloons
come down in the water, where birds
and aquatic and marine species, such
as sea turtles, eat them and get entan-
gled in the strings attached to them.
Some help we all can offer wildlife
is amazingly easy Turn off a light.
During turtle nesting season (which,
for most of the state, is between May 1
and Oct. 31, and in Brevard and
Broward counties, between March 1
and Oct. 31), sea turtles build nests
and lay their eggs. Hatchling sea tur-
tles emerge from the nest a couple of
months later, and instinct drives them
to the moonlit horizon over the water.
The water, on a natural beach, would
be the lightest horizon, and that is how
they know which direction to go. Arti-
ficial light disorients sea turtles, and
they crawl toward the brighter artifi-
cial light, rather than the water. This
is a dangerous path, leading them to
predation, dehydration or being run
over by cars. Turning off a bedroom
light, porch light or an outside lamp-
post could make the difference be-
tween a nest full of hatchlings

successfully making it to the water or
the complete loss of a turtle nest.
Of course, there are many more
overt things that we can do to give a
little boost to wildlife and give animals
a shot at survival. Purchasing an FWC
specialty license tag would help. A
portion of the money from these li-
cense tags goes directly to research.
Volunteering is another great way
to help wildlife.
Really, it usually doesn't take
much to help wildlife a little time, to
slow down for manatees and panthers;
a little effort, to put away a barbecue
grill or turn off a light; a little thought
to giving a helping hand to the crea-
tures and habitats that make up the
real essence of Florida.

Florida Ducks Are Just Ducky

Ducks may not be waddling
around in your backyard, but
you can usually find many
swimming and quacking in local
What makes a duck so like-
able? Maybe it's their waddle or
quack. Whatever makes them
so likable, people young and old
enjoy watching them.
Ducks are a type of bird
called waterfowl. That's because
they live on lakes, marshes, riv-
ers, streams and other watery
areas. They are closely related
to geese and swans. There are
many kinds of ducks in Florida.
A unique species found in the
Florida peninsula is the mottled
duck, often called the Florida
duck. It spends its entire life
in Florida. Male and female
mottled ducks are very similar
in color. They are brown all
over, but their head is a lighter
color than their body. They also
have an orange bill and feet.
Ducks eat by dabbling or
diving. Mottled ducks and
other dabbling ducks use their
bills to skim the surface of the
water or just below it looking
for food. When you see a duck
with its tail feathers sticking
out of the water, it is trying to
reach something tasty in deeper
water, like insects or aquatic
Other ducks dive for their
food. Many of these divers are

sea ducks and live at the ocean.
Diving ducks like to eat plants,
small fish, insects, snails, clams
and small crayfish.
Webbed feet help ducks swim,
but on land their wide feet and
position of their legs make them
waddle from side to side.
Did you know ducks have
waterproof feathers? A gland pro-
duces oil, which they spread by
preening themselves with their
bill. When you see them turning
their neck around to "scratch,"
they may actually be spreading
the oils.
Newborn ducks ducklings -
look like yellow and black balls of
fuzz. They learn to fly when they
are only 8 weeks old! Dabblers
can shoot straight up off the water
into the sky, but divers must run
on top of the water's surface to
gain enough speed to take flight -
just like an airplane.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission dis-
courages people from feeding
ducks because feeding can lead
to overcrowding, disease and nui-
sance problems in urban areas.
Activity: Ask your mom or
dad to take you to a local pond and
identify the types of ducks you see.
That's a good way to take part in
the Get Outdoors Florida! move-
ment www.GetOutdoorsFlorida.
com. See if you can find a Florida
mottled duck, and be sure to mark
it in your Wings Over Florida
checklist available at MyFWC.

Annual StuJent Archery Tournament Going Live In Newberry

The 2010 Florida Na-
tional Archery in the
Schools Program
(NASP) State Tourna-
ment will be held in
Newberry on Feb. 27.
The tournament will
be conducted in two for-
mats: a live tournament
competition that will
take place at the Easton-
Newberry Sports Com-
plex and a virtual
tournament for schools
that cannot afford to
travel, according to
Steve Robbins of the
Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC),
Florida's National
Archery in the Schools
Program coordinator.
"The virtual tourna-
ment will allow schools to
shoot for score in their
own gymnasium and
have their results com-
piled in a database of live
and virtual tournament
participants," Robbins
said. Schools started
shooting Feb. 8 and will
continue through Feb. 19,
and then they'll mail in
their results.
Scores from the live
tournament will be com-
pared to the results of the
virtual tournament, and
winners will be selected
and announced in three
divisions: elementary,
middle and high school.
"Trophies will be
awarded to the top three
schools in each division,
with each team member
receiving a medal. Tro-
phies will also be awarded
to the top boy and girl
shooter in each division,
with a Genesis bow pre-
sented to the top overall
boy and girl shooter," Rob-
bins said.
Every participant,

whether shooting in the
live or the virtual tourna-
ment, will receive a T-
shirt and a certificate.
'Archery is a great
sport," Robbins said. "It
helps build muscle en-
durance and flexibility,
develop hand-eye coordi-
nation, and grip and body
strength. You don't have
to be 6-foot-2 and able to
dunk a basketball to par-
ticipate. Girls can com-
pete with boys, and
youngsters with physical
disabilities can also par-
This is the third year
of the Florida NASP State
Tournament. The first
two tournaments were
conducted entirely in a
virtual format, with 592
kids shooting in 2008, and

751 in 2009.
NASP is a coopera-
tive effort between the
FWC and the Florida De-
partment of Education.
Before presenting the two-
week archery course,
teachers undergo an
eight-hour NASP Basic
Archery Instructor Train-
ing Program. The FWC
has certified teachers
from 230 Florida schools
to be basic archery in-

grand opening in October
