New Web site compares gas prices


TALLAHASSEE Escalating
fuel prices are impacting not
only the motoring public, but
the state's agriculture industry
as well, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said
today.
To help consumers gauge
gasoline prices around Florida,
Bronson unveiled a web site that
will provide weekly updates on
the average price of regular,
mid-grade and premium gaso-
line, as well as diesel fuel, in 20
Florida major metropolitan
areas. The web site is located at
www.florida-
agriculture.com/gasprices/.
"This tool will enable
motorists to see how their area
compares with others around
the state," Mr. Bronson said. "It
will also assist the public in
planning travel for.business or
pleasure.". ,
Bronson said the state's
44,000 farmers have seen fuel
prices increase by a reported 68
cents a gallon. in the past year,
adding well in excess of $100
million to their agricultural pro-
duction costs. Growers are high-
ly dependent on fuel for opera-
tions on their farms,
transporting their crops to mar-
ket, and to receive shipments of
seeds, plants, fertilizer and other
materials they need to operate
their farms and ranches. Costs
for all of those activities have
ncr-eased.
"Our growers, who feed the
world with the 280 commercial
crops they produce, are having a
tough time," Mr. Bronson said.
'We in Florida and throughout


the country have the safest and
most affordable food supply in
the world, and our producers
are doing all that they can to
absorb these increased costs."
In an effort to ease both Flori-
da and the nation's dependency
on foreign oil, Mr. Bronson is
spearheading an effort to have
Florida farmers grow fuel crops
to support this production.
Known as "Farm to Fuel," the
initiative stems from the "25 x
'25" vision, which calls for 25
percent of the nation's energy
needs to be produced by Ameri-
ca's farms, ranches and forests
by the year 2025.
"Florida is well positioned to
be a leader in this effort because
of our available farmland and
our mild climate," Mr. Bronson
said. "The goal is to reduce the
country's dependency on for-
eign oil, and at the same time to
provide alternative crops that
our farmers can grow to keep
our industry viable."
In January, Mr. Bronson held
his first "Farm to Fuel" meeting
in Tallahassee attended by
about 60 representatives of
Florida's agriculture industry,
companies interested in build-
ing processing plants to convert
crops to fuel and scientists who
have developed processes for
converting crops to ethanol or
bio-diesel. Plans are being made
for a major conference on the
subject in late summer.
Last week, Governor Jeb
Bush and the Florida Cabinet,
which includes Mr Bronson,
adopted a resolution in support
of the "25 x '25" vision, encour-
aging the production of renew-

able energy and fuels by Florida
farms and ranches to help meet
the state and nation's future
energy needs.
At Mr. Bronson's urging, the
Florida Legislature, which con-
cluded its 2006 session last
week, provided $5 million this
year for grants in support of bio-
energy research and demonstra-
tion projects in addition to $10
million slated for other renew-
able energy technologies.
"We see this initiative as
holding real promise to assist
our country in reducing its
dependence on foreign oil and
in giving our growers alternative
crops that may be the difference
in Whether or not they'keep their
land in agriculture," Mr. Bronson
said.

4 The Frostproof News, Thursday, May 18, 2006


Medicare counseling available


GAINESVILLE, Fla. For thou-
sands of Florida's senior citizens,
understanding the new Medicare
Part D prescription-drug coverage
plan could be a little easier thanks
to counseling available through the
University of Florida's extension
service.
In 26 counties, seniors can get
free, personalized help reviewing
their Medicare Part D options from
specially trained extension agents,
said Carolyn Wilken, an associate
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"The sheer scope of the pro-
gram can be intimidating for some
people, because there are 44
providers to choose from," said
Ms.Wilken, co-leader of the proj-
ect. "We're delighted to have the
chance to help, and we want sen-
iors to know that even if they
missed the initial enrollment dead-
line of May 15, we'll continue offer-
ing counseling throughout the
year."
Medicare Part D is an insurance
program that can protect seniors
against unexpected prescription
drug expenses, according to
www.medicare.gov, the official
U.S. government Web site for
Medicare coverage. Though the ini-
tial deadline was May 15, enroll-
ment for low-income seniors will
continue; for others, the next open
enrollment period is from Nov. 15
to Dec. 31,2006.
On average, seniors could save
approximately $1,000 to $2,000 per
year on prescription costs by
enrolling in Medicare Part D, Ms.
Wilken said. The exact savings will
vary depending on the senior's sit-
uation that's where extension
agents can help assess the plan's
potential benefits.
"Our agents will consult seniors
on -their needs, help them use a
Web site called the Medicare Pre-
scription Drug Plan Finder to
match their needs with appropriate
providers, and identify the three
least-expensive plans that meet


their needs," she said. "The one
thing we can't do is make the actu-
al decision to select a plan. When
seniors finish a consultation we ask
them to go home, discuss their
options with family, then choose a
plan."
To access online information
needed to provide counseling, the
UF extension agents will use laptop
computers, printers and wireless
cellular service provided by the My
Medicare Matters campaign, a
community-based education pro-
gram sponsored by the National
Council on Aging with support
from AstraZeneca Pharmaceuti-
cals. UF counseling is available in
the following counties: Alachua,
Bay, Duval, Flagler, Franklin, Gads-
den, Gulf, Hamilton, Hillsborough,
Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Levy,
Madison, Manatee, Marion, Miami-
Dade, Nassau, Osceola, Palm
Beach, Pasco, Putnam, Santa Rosa,
Seminole, Suwannee, Washing-
ton.
Seniors in all 67 Florida counties
can seek help by contacting the
statewide program Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders, better
known as SHINE. Operated by the
state Department of Elder Affairs,
SHINE offers Medicare Part D infor-
mation and can be reached via a
toll-free telephone number, (800)
963-5337.
UF's Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice is making a special effort to
reach seniors who have low
incomes, those in rural areas and
those who speak Spanish, said
Betsy Crisp, a Pasco County family
and consumer sciences extension
agent in Dade City. To serve the
Tampa Bay area's Hispanic popu-
lation, Crisp, has hired an inter-
preter who will work with seniors
from both Pasco and Hillsborough
counties. Another interpreter is
working in Miami-Dade County.
Before providing counseling,
UF extension agents must com-
plete a six-hour training course
developed by a team led by David


Angaran, a clinical professor with
UF's College of Pharmacy. Mr.
Angaran is the college's primary
faculty member responsible for
educating other professionals
about the Medicare Part D pro-
gram.
"This is the most extensive Part
D training program I've been
involved with," Mr. Angaran said.
"The College of Pharmacy really
appreciates the opportunity to
reach out to Florida residents on a
large scale."
With input from Ms. Wilken,
Mr. Angaran designed the training
course to make it easy for exten-
sion agents to handle tasks such as
explaining how drug-benefits pro-
grams work and recognizing the
importance of an accurate medica-
tion list. UF pharmacy students
Traci Brooks and Lacey Dillard also
assisted Mr. Angaran.
Several agencies and organiza-
tions partnered with UF to make
the counseling possible, including
SHINE, AARP, the Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid Services
and the National Council on Aging.
Public support of Medicare Part
D is important, because better pre-
scription-drug coverage can bene-
fit seniors in several ways, said
Wendy Zenker, chief operating offi-
cer of the nonprofit National Coun-
cil on Aging in Washington, D.C.
"For low-income seniors in par-
ticular, Medicare Part D offers
greater opportunity to afford pre-
scription drugs, which should
translate to better health," she said.
"It could also mean some seniors
will see a doctor more often,
because they'll be confident they
can afford medication that may be
prescribed. We look forward to
working closely with the UF Coop-'
erative Extension Service and its
agents, to reach out to low-income
seniors and help them understand
and apply for the extra help that is
available from the federal govern-
ment."

Fungicide
Coverage Key To
Vegetable & Fruit
Disease Control
Diseases in vegetable fields and
citrus groves can produce crops
with imperfections, which can
impact yield, quality and storage,
and your bottom line.
The keys to disease prevention
are proper fungicide timing and
coverage. But dithe best-timed
application becomes useless if it's
washed offby rain or irrigation.
The most effective fungicides are
those with the adhesion to stay on
the leaves and manage diseases,
regardless of field and weather
conditions.
Dithane DF Rainmhield
fungicide has earned its place in
growers' programs because of its
effective performance and its rainfast
abilities. Dithane fungicide has been
shown to be more resistant to wash
off by rain or irrigation than any
other EBDC fungicide. And, its
small, consistent particle size
contributes to greater adhesion,
better nozzle flow, and quick
dispersion in the spray tank.That
means fewer problems and more
value for you when it's time to
treat your fields.
Studies by Dow AgroSciences
have shown that Dithane DF with
Rainshield technology protects 13
times the surface it actually covers.
The surfactants and wetting agents
in Dithane allow dew cycles or
rainfall to redistribute the active
ingredient on the plant to trouble
spots where spores can be active.
That's especially helpful on lower
areas of leaves where fungi spores
tend to congregate.
Dithane controls fungal
infections through six sites of
action, making it so diverse that no
resistance problems have been
documented, even after 40 years of
use.This makes Dithane the
preferred partner in resistance
management programs and the
most economical fhngicide for
protection against diseases.
It's also easy to mix.The product
goes on the
plants instead of
setting at the
bottom of the
tank.
Forn more
information
about using
Dithanet
fungicide for
disease control
or about its
rainfast abilities,

In Loving & Precious Memory Of

ST.J. ernigan

August 6, 1983 ~ May 18, 2001
It has been five long & painful years since
you left us our cherished T.J.
It feels like an eternity since we've seen
your smile and heard you laugh.
You were so young, only 17,
you were only beginning to live when God decided to take you.
And even though you're in paradise,
we can't help but cry tears of heartache.
The pain of your death still pierces our hearts so sharply,
and can only be eased with the wonderful memories of you.
You will never be forgotten because of the amazing person you were.
Yoti touched the souls of those that ever knew you,
and through us all, you will continue to live.
Everything around is a constant reminder of you and every time we
look at your little brother Tom, we see your face.
And now, your bet friend Da% id. is with you in Heaven.:
You two were brothers in life and will be forever in ourhearts...
We miss you so much and, we will love and hold you close in our
hearts always.
Mom, Dad, Suzie & Little Tom

Don't restrict all biosolids says UF expert


GAINESVILLE, Fla. In an
effort to protect Florida's water
quality, state regulations govern-
ing the application of biosolids
to fields, forests and other areas
may be changed.- but the
move could unnecessarily
restrict beneficial uses of the
material, cautions.a IUniversity of
Florida expert.
Derived from sewage sludge,
biosolids can be used to fertilize'
plants and enrich soil,' said
George O'Connor, a professor
with University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences. The state recycles about
80 percent of its sludge this way,
but critics say biosolids release.
too much phosphorus, a nutri-
ent considered the state's No. 1
water-quality concern.
Mr. O'Connor. recently com-
pleted a four-year study showing
there's actually wide variation in
the amount of soluble phospho-
rus biosolids contain, depending
on the processing methods
involved, he said. Also, some
biosolids release more of their
phosphorus than others.
"We've identified a method
that can be used in the laborato-
ry to predict how much phos-
phorus biosolids will release,"
Mr. Connor, a soil chemistry


"The biggest challenge for Florida and the
nation is to develop consistent, scientifically
sound regulatory strategies for dealing with
biosolids. We need to take advantage of the ben-
efits biosolids offer, but use them in ways that
help us manage the overall amount of phospho-
rus in the environment."

George O'Connor


expert in UF's soil and water sci-
ence department. "This is a big
step toward understanding the
true environmental impact of
biosolids and using them more
efficiently."
A mineral essential for plant
growth, phosphorus can harm
lakes and streams by causing
algae blooms that block sunlight
and consume oxygen needed by
other organisms. Phosphorus
typically reaches watersheds
when rain and irrigation leach it
from fertilizer and animal
manure.
The UF study confirms earlier
findings showing conventionally
prepared biosolids release about
half as much phosphorus to
plants as chemical fertilizers.
Biosolids prepared using


BIOSOLIDS-2 methods that
result in higher phosphorus con-
tent release about the same
amount of the nutrient as fertiliz-
er, whereas heat-treated varieties
release only about one-tenth as
much.
Mr. O'Connor and colleague
Herschel Elliott of Penn State
University conducted the study
with a grant from the Water Envi-
ronment Research Foundation,
which funds research related to
wastewater treatment issues.
The study will be published later
this year.
Florida's Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection is prepar-
ing to revise its regulations gov-
erning the use of biosolids in
so-called land applications,
which include farming, forestry,


construction and highway beau-
tification, O'Connor said. There
are no restrictions on the phos-
phorus content of biosolids, but
the revisions may limit the total
amount of phosphorus applied
to land via biosolids.
"It's possible Florida will
adopt across-the-board restric-
tions on biosolids without
regard to the amount of phos-
phorus they actually release, and
that would be a mistake," said
Mr. O'Connor, who serves on the
department's technical advisory
committee on biosolids regula-
tion. "Such a move would
unnecessarily restrict the use of
biosolids that release phospho-
rus in small amounts, raising
costs for agricultural producers
and municipal utilities."
The technical advisory com-
mittee will meet May 9-10 in Tal-
lahassee to discuss proposed
changes to the current biosolids
land-application regulations,
said Maurice Barker, residuals
coordinator for DEP's domestic
wastewater section. The meet-
ing is open to the public.
"While we will be proposing
requirements, such as nutrient
management plans, that are
related to nutrients including
phosphorus, I really can't say for


sure what requirements will ulti-
mately be adopted in the final
revised regulations," Mr. Barker
said. "We do expect the revision
to be finalized by the end of the
year."
- Biosolids are produced by
breaking down solids in sewage
sludge using naturally occurring
bacteria, then sanitizing and
dewatering the material. The
result is a black, soil-like material
that contains important plant
nutrients including phosphorus,
nitrogen, calcium, magnesium
and sulfur; biosolids also help
soil retain water.
All 50 U.S. states dispose of
sewage by producing biosolids,
using some of the material for
land application, said O'Connor,
who recently received the Amer-
ican Society of Agronomy's 2005
Environmental Quality Research
Award to honor his decades of
biosolids research.
Florida produces 300,000 dry
tons of biosolids each year and
imports another 100,000 dry
tons; 66 percent of the total is
used in land application, 17 per-
cent is placed in landfills and 17
percent the highest-quality
material is sold to consumers
for use in home gardening, he
said. If restrictions curtailed land


application of biosolids, a
greater portion would probably.
go into landfills.
"The biggest challenge for
Florida and the nation is to
develop consistent, scientifically
sound regulatory strategies for
dealing with biosolids," Mr.
O'Connor said. "We need to take
advantage of the benefits
biosolids offer, but use them in'
ways that help us manage the.
overall amount of phosphorus in
the environment."
One way to reduce the possi-
bility of phosphorus runoff
would be to match specific types.
of biosolids to specific applica-
tion sites, based on the soil's
properties and its need for phos-
phorus, he said.
Mr. O'Connor's current
research, funded by the Florida
Water Environment Association,
is investigating biosolids pro-
duced and used in Florida to
determine their environmental
impact.
"Right now, Florida is using
multiple types of biosolids for
land application," he said.
"Building on our previous
research, we want to identify any
products that could constitute a
problem and determine how we
could better manage them."
