Bass, bream and crappie -

year here in the state that claims
bragging rights to the title "Fish-

The Florida Legislature and


the Fish and Wildlife Conserva-

aside one weekend per year for
residents and visitors to enjoy
freshwater fishing without hav-

Bob Wattendorf, an FWC
fisheries biologist who helps
promote the annual event, said
the Free Freshwater Fishing
Weekend is an opportunity for
parents to open a whole new
world of adventure with their


children.
"When you see a child catch
his first fish and hear the
squeals and screams and you
watch the breathless excite-
ment," Wattendorf said, "you're
seeing a magical moment the
child will remember forever.
And someday, the child may
pass that moment on. to yet
another generation and carry
on the centuries-old tradition of
fishing in Florida."

The first home built by Habitat
for Humanity of East Polk County
is happily occupied by the God-
dard family, Mr. and Mrs. (Debra)
Wayne Goddard and their 10-
year-old son Tyler.
Cargill Juice came forward
with the donation of the land.
Starting with the groundbreaking
on June 12, 2004, the couple's
church, Emmanuel Baptist Fel-
lowship Church, headed by Pas-
tor John Mouery, came week
after week with volunteers to
saw, nail and plaster the house
into being.
A charming yard blooms with
flowers added by Mrs. Goddard,
whose pride in the home is still


tinged with amazement that so
'many helped so much.
"A youth group from a
Methodist Church in North Caroli-
na came and the kids, all
between 12 and 16 years old did
all the nailing of all the panels for
the outside walls," said Mr. God-
dard.
"So many people came again
and again, said Mrs. Goddard,
"Mr. Backus, frdm here in Frost-
proof, is in his 80s and he came
every week!"
"Mrs. Van Dusen from church
made us a scrapbook of pictures
taken at each step along the way,"

Samuel Bennett bio:
Mr. Bennett has 11 years
teaching experience in Polk. He
was a police officer in the 1970s
but went back to school to
become a teacher because he
felt he could influence children
in a positive way by teaching ele-
mentary students. He is a skilled
communicator, frequently call-
ing parents on the telephone and,
making home visits to parents to
discuss issues. During the recent
storms, he took it upon himself
to organize efforts to help staff
members who suffered damage
or lost their homes. When he
noticed that many of his school's
students come from single-par-
ent families, he organized:the
school's Single Parent Associa-


promotion the FWC has in
progress. The first 3,000 Florida
residents to purchase the $61.50
five-year freshwater fishing
license will receive $80 worth of
free hooks, lures, fishing line,
magazines and other goodies
like t-shirts and fishing towels.
"This is a great way to help
contribute to the future of fish
and wildlife conservation in
Florida," Wattendorf said. "Any-
body who is interested can get
more information including


and a certificate of immunization
(Florida Department of Health
Form 680) showing all shots
including 2nd MMR, hepatitis B
series and varicella.
Proofs of residency from two
different categories are also
required: Category 1 mortgage
document, property tax record,
home or apartment lease agree-
ment; Category 2 a current utility
bill (electric, gas, phone, water,
cable); Category 3 current voter
registration document; Category 4
- proof of current government ben-
efits (Medicare, disability, food
stamps, HRS correspondence).

information to families headed
by one person. The association
gives financial advice, discipline
suggestions and schedule man-
agement input. In 2003, his work
in developing the Single Parent
Association earned him a Disney
Teacherrific Award. He holds a
master's in elementary educa-
tion and is currently a doctoral
candidate in organizational lead-
ership.
"Our teacher of the year can-
didate has excellent rapport with
staff, students and parents,"
wrote Garner Elementary princi-
pal Kathy Walsh in the packet
nominating Bennett for the
award. "He is able to relate and
share instruction at the students'
level, making learning fun and
lasting. Our candidate is loved
and respected by our entire,
school family."
Kris Heam bio:
Mrs. Hearn has 12 years expe-
rience. She is currently enrolled
full-time at a local college and is
close to earning the credits for a
teaching degree. Her career is
coming full circle. She was a
stay-at-home mom, school vol-
unteer, substitute teacher and
currently is a paraeducator. If her
work as-a paraeducator is any
indication, she will also be an
outstanding teacher. Her special-
ty is math and she tutors stu-
dents after school, on weekends
and during the summer to help
them pass standardized tests.
She has stacks of thank you
cards from students for helping
them pass the FCAT. She is a stu-

Register for summer camp



in Ocala National Forest


Do your children long to spend
their summer days in the great
outdoors? Would they love the
chance to learn about wildlife
from the experts, or swim, hike
and canoe with other children
their age?
Then it's time to sign them up
for the Ocala Outdoor Adventure
Camp at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion's (FWC) Ocala Conservation
Center in the Ocala National For-
est.
The summer camp is for boys
and girls ages 10-15 and is based
on wildlife conservation, firearm
safety and outdoor skills. This
year the camp offers five one-
week sessions with all-new pro-
grams beginning June 19.
The primary goal of the camp
program is to provide children
with the necessary skills and
knowledge to become better
sportsmen and women, while
instilling an awareness of firearm
safety, conservation and wildlife
stewardship. In addition, campers
will fish, canoe, swim, hike and
participate.in many other outdoor
activities.
Tuition is $295 per camper per
week and includes lodging, food,
program materials and instruc-
tion for each session. Each week-
long session is divided into four
groups based on their individual
focus: Wild about Wildlife, Wet
and Wildlife, Hunting and Hunter
Safety and Expedition. All pro-
grams are new or significantly
revised in format and scope from
previous years.
"Carripits: inr': ild about

Wildlife, anew program this year,
will have a chance to go wild
exploring nature," said Cardinal
Collins, director of the Ocala Con-
servation Center. "They will-learn
about wildlife management and
enjoy many camp activities
including basic wilderness sur-
vival and field first-aid training,
canoeing, fishing, hiking; shoot-
ing sports and other hands-on
outdoor programs."
For those who simply can't


resist the water, the camp offers
another new program, aptly
named Wet and Wildlife.
"This program gets into the
fun of fishing, marine ecology and
boating safety. In addition to the
traditional camp activities already
described above, Wet and
Wildlife campers will have the
opportunity to become certified
in the FWC's Boater Safety
Course," Collins said.
For the intermediate level
camper, the camp offers the
Hunting and Hunter Safety group.
"These campers will learn
about wild game and its habitats,
and apply this knowledge to
developing ethical hunting skills.
Then they will have a chance to
get their hunter safety certifica-
tion. They will receive firearm
safety as well as shotgun and rifle
shooting instruction from Nation-
al Rifle Association-(NRA) certi-
fied range safety officers. And,
they will receive archery instruc-
tion from National Archery Asso-
ciation-certified instructors, while
participating in numerous shoot-
ing range activities. They will also
have a chance to participate in
many camp activities including
.basic wilderness survival and field
first-aid training, canoeing, fish-
ing, hiking, and other hands-on
outdoor programs," Collins said.
The final program is for
advanced campers who have
already completed a hunter safety.
course.
"The Expedition group is
designed for the camper with an
avid interest in the.outdoors who
already has successfully complet-
ed the hunter safety course,"
Collins said. "Expedition is an out-
door adventure, including a trip
into the forest for two days of
primitive camping. Before leaving
base camp, campers will prepare
for this experience by learning the
fundamentals of wilderness sur-
vival, orienteering, backpacking
and campsite preparation."
The Ocala Conservation Cen-
ter is on a 57-acre peninsula, rich
in history and wildlife in Marion


County in north Central Florida.
Located just 20 miles east of
Ocala, it is beautifully situated on
Lake Eaton in the heart of the
Ocala National Forest. Facilities
are rustic, yet comfortable, with
air-conditioned cabins and dining
hall. Classrooms are fishing piers,
shooting ranges, nature trails,
Lake Eaton and the vast Ocala
National Forest.

Plants may need doctoring


CHAMPAIGN, Ill. Has your
yard had a check-up lately? If not,
better late than never, say plant
healthcare experts. Plant health-
care (PHC) is a relatively new
concept in professional lahd-
scape management. PHC can pre-
serve and protect a homeown-
er's yard and pocketbook.
Preventative care, frequent
check-ups, early detection,
informed decision-making, and
routine treatments that provide
long term, stable solutions have
become vital parts of plant health-
care programs. The approach is
multi-faceted and customer-driv-
en, focusing on the health,
growth, and beauty of a home-
owner's yard.
"It's like an HMO plan for your
yard," says Jim Skiera, Executive
Director for the International Soci-
ety of Arboriculture (ISA). "Adopt-
ing a plant healthcare program
can prevent problems or keep
them from getting serious. When
homeowners and professionals
work together, everyone benefits -
drastic, costly maintenance can
be avoided while the value of the
entire property increases."
The basic premise behind PHC
is that if a plant is tended to prop-
erly, natural defenses can be
strengthened. Energy that would
have been exerted on stressful
factors is now applied to building
up defense systems. Just like
human health, plant health
improves when hazardous factors

are removed from the environ-
ment and check-ups are per-
formed regularly.
In years past, expensive reme-
dies were employed after a yard
had been badly damaged. These
practices were often unsuccessful
and cost homeowners significant
amounts of money in planting
and maintenance. Plant health-
care programs, however, can help
ensure the health and beauty of
plants and landscapes, lowering
maintenance costs and increasing
property values.
"The long-term savings is virtu-
ally guaranteed," Skiera says.
"Not only will a plant healthcare
program enhance the well-being
of plants, but it also will improve
the mood and bank account of
the homeowner."
What to expect from a PHC
program
Professional support Plant
healthcare experts should ask
questions, explore priorities, and
determine a homeowner's expec-
tations. Look for ISA Certified
Arborists or certified landscape
professionals who are well-
trained, educated, and experi-
enced professionals who are
familiar with landscape plants,
their needs, and the pests and dis-
eases most likely to attack.
Individual care Every yard is
different. A homeowner's desires
and expectations should drive the
program while enabling profes-
sionals to care for the yard.


Frequent monitoring Early
problem detection is key to long-
term success. Professionals
should inspect a yard every 3 to 6
weeks during growing seasons. A
scouting report should be given
to the homeowner after every
visit, alerting them to any existing
or anticipated problems.
Treatment options and alterna-
tives If unhealthy environmen-
tal facto sare present, the profes-
sional should provide the
homeowner with information
about the problem and all possi-
ble treatment options just like a
doctor would a patient. The best
choices usually involve natural
processes, those that are least
intrusive. Chemical treatments
should be used as a last resort.
Homeowners and professionals
should work together to decide
what is best for the yard.
Environmental sensitivity -
Healthy plants naturally enhance
their environment,
strengthening natural defense
systems and suppressing pests.
Professionals should help elimi-
nate pests in environmentally
friendly ways, taking care to elimi-
nate only those that are harmful.
While spot spraying is one possi-
bility, PHC professionals should
avoid blanket chemical sprays.
Cost effectiveness PHC pro-
grams maintain the vigor of the
landscape. Proactive PHC pro-
grams cost considerably less than
reactive interventions.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog."
Most citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe
their public officials at work, or to determine how well public insti-
tutions are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs"
than "watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog"
role as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a
courteous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your

By MaryAnn Morris
The March 12th performance
by Davis Gaines to benefit the
restoration of the old Frostproof

rousing success.
Mr. Gaines performed Broad-
way hits to a nearly sellout crowd.
Restoration of the school is a
special concern to Mr. Gaines
because his parents met at the old
Frostproof High School.
The Historical Preservation


Society can be justly proud to
bring such talent to Frostproof for
a cause that will benefit this town.
Mayor Larry Hadden present-
ed Mr. Gaines with a plaque
inscribed, "Presented for your
performance March 12, 2005 at
Frostproof High School and a
Concert to Benefit the restoration
efforts of the Auditorium" and key

"We are truly grateful to have earned the support of
the Saterbo Family and Mountain Lake. In their
respective fields of endeavor, these two
organizations represent the very highest standards
of excellence and it is an honor for the Foundation
to be associated with them."

Lance Anastasio, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Winter Haven Hospital, said: "It is
extraordinarily appropriate to hold a golf
tournament in memory of Dick Saterbo. He was so
committed to Polk County and he was equally
committed to the Winter Haven Hospital's mission
of providing quality health care throughout the
Ridge communities. This tournament connects the
past, present and future of east Polk County in a
unique and special way. Clearly, this tournament is
becoming one of Polk County's signature annual
events."


William G. Burns, Foundation Trustee and current
President of the Mountain Lake Corporation, said,
"We're pleased to welcome the Mid-Florida
Medical Services Foundation tournament to
Mountain Lake. The members of the Mountain
Lake community, whether they are full-time
residents or seasonal residents, are keenly aware
that the-pursuit of high-quality healthcare is a
shared mission. It takes support from all area
communities served by the Mid-Florida Medical
Services Foundation to help the organization
achieve its goals."

Bums noted that the Mountain Lake golf course
has been ranked by Golfweek magazine as one of
the Top 100 residential courses in the country. "For
golfers, playing at Mountain Lake is a unique and
memorable experience. We're confident that this
tournament will live up to each player's
expectations," Bums said.

Colorado Boxed Beef Senior Vice President Steve
Saterbo, a member of the Mid-Florida Medical
Services Foundation, said: "For my brothers, my
mother and I, this event honors the memory of our
father, R.D. Saterbo, who was so much a part of the
Polk County community. Through his service with
Winter Haven Hospital, he made a tremendous
impression upon us on how important quality
health care is to the vitality of a community and the
businesses that operate here. We're convinced this
event will contribute to the long-term welfare of
our community."

Colorado Boxed Beef, based in Aubumdale, is a
family-owned company that purchases,
warehouses, and distributes beef, pork, lamb,
poultry, fish, and selected dairy products in markets

HUS outbreak is reason for concern


A frightening outbreak of
Hemolytic Uremic Syndrome
(HUS) in Central Florida has par-
ents and health provides under-
standablyworried.
Department of Health Secretary
Dr. John Agwunobi said that as of
March 25 there were 11 confirmed
cases of HUS in children under the
age of 10, and four cases in adults.
The disease has been con-
firmed in Orange, Seminole, Col-
lier, Volusia and Pasco Counties.
According to the DOH, HUS
begins with ingestion of a form of
E. coli bacteria. This can happen if a
child pets an infected animal and
then fails to wash his or her hands
before eating something, transfer-
ring the bacteria from the hands to
the food and into the mouth. The
bacteria may also be in raw milk or
contaminated water. Pasturization
of milk heats it sufficiently to kill
bacteria, so commercially
processed milk is not a problem.
The concern is about consumption
of milk that has not been
processed.
After moving into the colon, the
bacterium begins to grow. Approx-


A
Healthier
Life f j


with Katrina Elsken


imately 3-10 days later, symptoms
may develop including mild to
severe diarrhea, bloody diarrhea,
and/or diarrhea with a fever.
For most people, the infection
ends with diarrhea. However in 2
to 8 percent of cases, the infection
continues and develops into HUS..
HUS may develop two to three
weeks after the onset of diarrhea,
according to the DOH.
Those most at risk are young
children and those whose immune
systems may already be compro-
mised by another health ailment.
Symptoms on HUS include
diarrhea, which may become
severe and bloody and fever. Left
untreated, the disease can cause


kidney damage and may even be
fatal. Treatment of the disease may
require blood transfusions and kid-
ney dialysis.
So far, all confirmed cases in the
recent outbreak have had contact
with events at the Strawberry Festi-
val in Plant City or the Central Flori-
da Fair in Orlando. Investigators
believe the outbreak may be con-
nected to animal exhibits or petting
zoos at these fairs.
Contact with infected animals is
just one way this disease may be
spread. Infection may also occur
from drinking unpasturized milk or
juice, drinking contaminated water
or swimming in contaminated
water. A lake or pond may become
contaminated if an infected animal
goes into the water, or if rain wash-
es the manure or an infected ani-
mal into the water.
If you or your children attended
a recent fair or festival with animal,
exhibits, and have diarrhea, the
Department of Health encourages
you to contact your.doctor. As with
most diseases, early diagnosis can
be important to successful treat-
ment.


To avoid HUS infection, DOH
offers the following safety tips:
Wash hands often, and
immediately after contact with
domestic or farm animals.
Do not eat undercooked
meat.
If you suspect your child may
have symptoms of infection, con-
tact your health care provider.
For more information, contact
your doctor or local county health
department.
For more information and facts
on HUS, visit the DOH website at
www.doh.state.fl.us or Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention at
www.cdc.gov. For veterinary or
animal-related inquiries, contact
the Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services at
www.doacs.state.fl.us.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription drugs. Some drugs inter-
act.badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered "healthy."

Farm animals checked for E. coli


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced Monday
that he is sending department
veterinarians and inspectors to
inspect and conduct testing on
farm animals linked to a series of
illnesses of children who recently
attended agricultural fairs.
Although the Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) is investi-
gating several possible sources
that may be responsible for the
outbreak, including food and
water the children may have con-
sumed, Bronson said he is taking
the proactive step of dispatching
veterinarians to check on ani-


mals in an effort to enhance and
expedite the DOH inquiry.
"We want to do all that we
can to support health officials to
get to the bottom of this case,"
Mr. Bronson said. "We will pro-
vide all of our data to our col-
leagues at the Department of
Health and stand ready to assist
them in any way we can."
State veterinarians are track-
ing the animals that were present
at the recent Central Florida Fair
in Orlando and at the Strawberry
Festival in Plant City-- as a num-
ber of the illnesses were report-
edly among children who attend-
ed one or the other of the
festivals. They will then.conduct


various tests on the animals
traced to those fairs to determine
what, if any infections, could
have been transferred from the
animals.
In the meantime, officials
stress that it is critically important
that anyone who comes in con-
tact with animals takes sanitary
precautions, including thorough-
ly washing one's hands after con-
tact with the animals. Some bac-
teria, such as E. coli, can reside in
animals without causing them
any disease but can make
humans sick if the bacteria
lingers on the hands and is
ingested along with food.


Robo-turkey helps snare poachers

Some high-tech recruits are e"
joining the Florida Fish and Wildlife .
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) law enforcement team. The

al Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF)
today gave the FWC five robotic
turkeys. These so called robo-
turkeys are lifelike figures that

Uu "Ouffficers use the robo- .

attempt to shoot the decoys," said
Col. Julie Jones, FWCls-law
enforcement director. "Having five
more of these in the field will great-

assistance.

Researchers rescue panther kittens


State wildlife researchers res-
cued two newborn Florida pan-
ther kittens from the wild Sunday
after the kittens' mother aban-
doned them.
Dr. Mark Cunningham, wildlife
veterinarian for the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC), transported the
3-week-old kittens to the Jack-
sonville Zoo and Gardens. The kit-
tens, both females, are receiving
round-the-clock care by zoo vet-
erinarians and staff.
FWC biologist Darrell Land,.
who heads the agency's south
Florida panther research, said sci-
entists are puzzled by the moth-
er's abandonment of the kittens,
especially since it occurred so
soon after giving birth to them.
"We have monitored more
than 180 kittens ard have. never
seen any kind of abandonment,"
Land said. "The field sign sug-
gests the mother went back into
estrous (the condition of being
receptive to mating) three weeks
after giving birth."
Usually, the mother would not
go back into estrous until.the kit-
tens are a couple of years old or
something happens to them.
"The hormone changes that
initiate estrous stop milk produc-
tion and prevent the mother from
being able to care for the kittens,"
Land said. "What triggered these


changes is unknown."
Karl Kranz, director of biologi-
cal programs at the zoo, said the
kittens probably will not return to
the wild.
"But they could very likely res-
urrect the Florida panther captive-
breeding program at some point
if state wildlife officials decide to
undertake such a programm"
Kranz said.
Land said the kittens lived in
the northern part of the Florida
Panther National Wildlife Refuge.
Their mother, a 5-year-old, full-
blooded Florida panther known
to researchers as FP107., was
unsuccessful in raising two previ-
ous litters. Male panthers FP119
and FP131 are possible sires of
the two newborns. FP107 was in
the company of FP131 when she
abandoned the kittens last week.
When researchers first sus-
pected FP107 had abandoned the
kittens, they placed monitoring
equipment at their den site to
confirm whether the mother
returned to tend the kittens.
FP107 did not return to the den,
between March 14 and March 20,
and the kittens lost 20 percent of
their weight during that period. At
that point FWC biologists rescued
the kittens and placed them in the
care of the Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens, which has the required
permits and expertise to care for


Florida panthers.
"For more than 90 years, the
Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens has
been dedicated to inspiring the
discovery and appreciation of
wildlife through innovative expe-
riences in a caring environment,"
said zoo spokeswoman Jennifer
Vrban. "The Jacksonville Zoo and
Gardens offers over 2,000 rare
and exotic animals and over 1,000
unique plant species. The zoo is a
non-profit organization' and is an


accredited member of the Ameri-
can Zoo and Aquarium Associa-
tion (AZA)."
More information about the
zoo is available at www.jack-
sonvillezoo.org.
More information about Flori-
da panthers is available at the
FWC's Web site, MyFWC.com.
The Florida panther is the offi-
cial state animal. Scientists
believe fewer than 100 of them
still exist in the wild.

Both panter kittens recently rescued by State wildlife
researchers are females. Hand fed by humans, the kittens
will never be able to return to the wild. However, they may
someday be used in a Florida panther breeding program.
