Church celebrates 85 years


Babson Park Community
Church celebrates anniversary
Plans are in full swing for a
festive celebration in honor of
Babson Park's "little church on
the hill's" 85th anniversary. Paint-
ing, cleaning, pruning, menu
plans and general sprucing up is
being carried out by eager volun-
teers as they ready to welcome
all present and past members
and friends to their celebration
on Sunday, April 9 at 10:30 a.m. A
bountiful dinner is planned for
everyone attending immediately
following the service.
After an extended period of
time without a full time pastor,
their new dynamic pastor Mike
Willis his wife Kelli and their
three boys have brought a new
sense of vigor and vitality to the
congregation. Reverend Willis
has been instrumental in the


planning of this Sunday's home-
coming.
Returning from his retirement
of four years ago to deliver Sun-
day's message will be the much
loved Pastor Dolph Allen. All are
invited to attend this celebration.
Two things stand out as one
reads the records and correspon-
dence of the first fifty years of the
Babson Park Community
Church. First, the dedication of
all of the pastors who have minis-
tered in the community and sec-
ond, the scores of people who
have given of their time and abili-
ties.
As one reflects on the Babson
Park Community during the early
days when it was known as
"Crooked Lake" with only a few
homes connected by sandy pine
needle trails instead of roads.
Few of the present buildings


were here and tall pines grew
where orange groves now flour-
ish.
camped along the shores of the
lake came hardy settlers in the
1900's. They gathered in one
another's homes for worship.
Later on, the H.S. Thayer home
on Seminole road, built by Irwin
Yarnell and called "The Guest
House", was the meeting place
for Sunday devotions and class-
es. When the. public school was
built, Sunday School classes also.
met there.
The road from Lake Wales
was built in 1919. The early resi-
dents believed it was time the
small but growing community of
Babson Park had a church. At the
steady, gentle urging of Mrs. Lin-

University of Florida
LAKELAND, Fla. Citrus
canker and greening will reduce
the volume of fruit produced in
Florida over the next 15 years, and
the state may never return to the
level of fruit harvested in 2003
before hurricanes spread canker
around the state, according to a
new Univ'ersity of Florida report.
"In addition to these disease
problems, rising land values will
affect the willingness of investors
to commit capital to citrus pro-
duction in Florida, and we expect
that orange and grapefruit pro-
duction will decline before it
begins to rebound," said Tom
Spreen, a professor with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
"However, growing world
demand for Florida's high quality
citrus is expected to help boost
prices at all levels ranging from
growers to juice processors and
consumers. In other words, high-
er prices should offset lower pro-
duction volume," he said.
These are some of the fore-
casts in the report "An Eco-
nomic Assessment of the Future
of the Florida Citrus Industry" -
prepared by UF's food and
resource economics department.
Mr. Spreen, chairman of the
department, presented the 166-
page report to the Florida Depart-
ment of Citrus March 23.
He said canker and greening
will affect citrus producers in dif-
ferent ways so the economic
impacts of the two diseases must
be measured separately.
"Industry response to sup-
press citrus canker and greening
will increase production costs in
the near term," he said. "These
diseases will also affect revenues
through decreased fruit yields and
pack-out in fresh-fruit operations
- eroding the overall profitability

of the industry."
Because of canker, 62 percent
of the nursery trees in the state
have been destroyed, severely
limiting the acreage in groves that
can be replanted over the next
three years, Mr. Spreen said. The
presence of canker and greening
will also require new greenhouse
investments and management
systems to ensure disease-free
nursery trees.
Citrus canker attacks the fruit
and leaves of a citrus tree, result-
ing in increased premature fruit
drop. The bacterial disease affects
the external appearance of fruit
grown for the fresh market, and
the disease may open pathways
for other pest problems, resulting
in increased tree mortality. Mr.
Spreen said it is likely that citrus
canker will have more profound
effects on fresh fruit producers
compared to the processing seg-
ment of the industry.
Citrus greening, a more worri-
some threat than canker, is
already widespread in Asia,
where little citrus is now pro-
duced. Considering the fact that
the Asian citrus psllid, which
.spreads the disease, is already
present throughout Florida, it is
likely that greening will eventually
affect many commercial citrus
production areas of the state, Mr.
Spreen said.
Greening results in increased
tree mortality. It is more likely to
attack young trees than older
trees, and there are many ques-
tions regarding economically
sound management practices
with respect to greening, he said.
"It is crucial that answers be
found to these questions because
increased tree rnortalitv rates
have a detrimental effect on the,
ability of a business to survive and
compete' "n the global market,"
Mr. Spreen said. "We need to
identify practices that suppress
greening for the most economical

production of citrus in Florida."
Because of Florida's impor-
tance as a citrus. producer, dis-
eases that adversely affect pro-
duction of various citrus varieties
in the state will also affect prices.
With the strong competition
between Brazil and Florida in the
world orange juice market, it is
important to assess the supply
response in both regions as they
begin the process of managing
citrus canker and citrus greening,
Mr. Spreen said.
Analyses of the world market
for orange juice and fresh and
processed grapefruit were con-
ducted to quantify the price
effects of these diseases. This
work was combined with grove-
level analyses to assess the future
profitability of citrus production in
the state.
According to a separate agri-
cultural land values report
released in January by John
Reynolds, a professor emeritus in
the UF food and resource eco-
nomics department, the price of
Florida farmland increased by
more than 80 percent between
2004 and 2005.
Mr. Spreen said increasing land
prices have implications for all
commodities grown in Florida,
particularly citrus. Higher land
prices mean higher investment
costs for new grove development,
he said.
"This factor combined with
increased costs of grove mainte-
nance, lower yields and higher
tree mortality associated with cit-
rus canker and greening will
likely significantly increase the
fruit price required to justify new
grove development," Mr. Spreen
said.
"With the large number ol
bearing acres affected by the hur-
ricanes in 2004 and 2005, along
with groves that have been eradi-
cated because of citrus canker,

is down, pointing the way to
smaller citrus crops in the future,"
he said.
The new economic study also
incorporated the effects of green-
ing in Brazil, Florida's main com-
petitor in the world orange juice
market. Citrus greening has been
present in the state of Sao Paulo
for two years and has spread to
most of its commercial citrus pro-
duction area.
Mr. Spreen said citrus produc-
tion continues to be an important
part of Florida agriculture and the
state's overall economy. A study
based upon the 1999-2000 season
provided an estimate that the total
economic impact of citrus in
Florida was nearly $9.3 billion,
and this study was updated to
reflect the 2003-04 season. The
study also includes detailed pro-
jections on the future economic
outlook for the industry as it
begins an aggressive program to
manage canker and greening.

worked with Mr. Spreen on the
project are Alan Hodges, an
extension associate in the depart-
ment; David Mulkey, a professor
in the department; Ron Muraro, a

Conservancy buys land for



Everglades Restoration


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS, Fla. -
The Nature Conservancy
announced March 22, 2006 that it
has purchased 1,646 acres of land
along the old Kissimmee River,
including a prime section of Par-
adise Run, to advance important
goals of the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan (CERP).
Paradise Run is prime habitat and
a top priority for protection under
the Lake Okeechobee Watershed
Project of the CERP. The site is
part of the original Kissimmee
River floodplain and presents a
unique opportunity for habitat
restoration. The Conservancy
bought the land on behalf of the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) for transfer at a
later date.
The property is located across
Route78hnorth', est of Lake O kee-
chobee, the' largest' f'eh\\ateie
lake in the southeastern United
States and a central component of
the vast interconnected aquatic
ecosystem in south Florida. The


Nature Conservancy will eventu-
ally sell the land to the SFWMD
when funds become available.
"This land came on the market
at an unplanned moment, but
one very timely for restoration of
these important Everglades 'sys-
tems. We appreciate The Nature
Conservancy providing assistance
in acquiring this priority tract at
this critical time," said Ruth
Clements, director of the SFWMD
Land Acquisition Department.
"The conservation value of
this acquisition is not only the
protection of top priority habitat
for the CERP but the enormous
contribution to restoration of
related aquatic sites and abating
threats to them," said Victoria
Tschinkel, Florida director of The
Nature Conservancy.
"The site supports several fed-
frall listed thireatened or eridirn-
gered species, such as bald eagle,
snail kite, crested caracara and
wood stork, and-supports 20 state
listed species, including many


wading birds. This is a golden
opportunity for ecosystem
restoration," said Steve Schubert
of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice.
"Paradise Run appears to have
earned its name through abun-
dant wildlife resources," said Paul
Gray, Audubon's Lake Okee-
chobee Watershed Program coor-
dinator. "A number of significant
wading birds and ducks have
been found there, as well as vigor-
ous fish populations."
The Nature Conservancy is a
leading international, nonprofit
organization that preserves
plants, animals and natural com-
munities representing the diversi-
ty of life on Earth by protecting the
lands and waters they need to sur-
vive. With funding Ironr, :'obter
approved' Florida Forever pro-
gram and our generous donors
the Conservancy has helped pro-
tect more than 1.1 million acres in
Florida since 1961.
