FEMA provides homes for Floridians


ORLANDO The US. Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) has provided near-
ly 15,000 manufactured homes to
Floridians who needed immediate
housing and had no other options
in the wake of four hurricanes
descending upon the state last
year.
More than 13,000 travel trailers
and nearly 2,000 mobile homes
have been placed on residents' pri-
vate property, in short-term hous-
ing sites or on commercial park
space leased since Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne
damaged or destroyed many prop-
erties.
FEMA and the State of Florida
have established housing group
sites in hard-hit Charlotte, De Soto,
Escambia, Hardee, Okaloosa,
Santa Rosa, St. Lucie and Martin
counties. In communities where
commercial parks exist, FEMA has
leased/is leasing pad space on
which residents can place manu-
factured homes.
Occupants typically do not pay
rent for these temporary homes
for up to 18 months while they
repair their original dwellings or
find new, permanent housing.


They are, however, responsible for
utilities such as electricity, phone
service and cable TV.
A breakdown of the amounts
and types of disaster assistance to
Floridians for the 2004 hurricanes
is as follows:
More than 1.22 million storm
victims have applied for federal
and state assistance.
Total approved assistance for
individuals who suffered damages
has surpassed $3.96 billion.
Atotal of$ 1.12 billion in feder-
al and state disaster assistance
grants has been approved for Flori-
da residents in all 67 counties. Of
that amount, $528.6 million has
been'approved to pay for lodging
expenses, rental ,assistance and
minimal home repairs. The bal-
ance of$591 million covers other
needs, which may include such
items as repair or replacement of
personal property, funeral expens-
es, and medical and dental costs
related to a storm.
The U.S. Small Business
Administration has approved
more than $1.28 billion in low-
interest loans to repair storm-dam-
aged homes and businesses. Busi-
nesses may also be eligible for
economic injury loans, which


assist business in getting back on
their feet following a disaster.-
Public assistance (infrastruc-
ture) funds are flowing to local
governments and certain private,
nonprofit entities.
More than $412 million has
been obligated by FEMA for proj-
ect requests found eligible for
grant assistance and more than
2,630 requests for aid have been
filed.
More than $1.1 billion was
paid for emergency response and
protective measures.
National Flood Insurance
Program claims received total
26,956.
More than $13.4 million has
been disbursed in Disaster Unem-
ployment Assistance benefits.
Some 532,363 visitors have been
-to one of the 92 mobile and fixed
site Disaster Recovery Centers
(DRCs). Presently, 33 DRCs contin-
ue to assist applicants throughout
the state.
Officials urge all homeowners,
renters and business owners who
sustained hurricane damage to
apply for federal and state disaster
assistance by the Feb. 28, 2005,
deadline. Applicants can register
by phone at (800) 621-FEMA


(3362), or TTY (800) 462-7585 for
the hearing- and speech-impaired.
The registration lines will be closed
Sunday, Feb. 6 and starting Feb. 7,
both numbers will operate Mon-
day- Saturday from 8 a.m. until 6
p.m., Eastern Standard Time.
Applicants also may register for
assistance online at FEMA's web-
site, http://www.fems.gov Look for

Team (SER1) is a collaboration of
Florida's state agencies led by the
state coordinating officer, SERT's
mission is to ensure that Florida is
prepared to respond to emergen-
cies, recover from them, and miti-
gate their impact. Visit

By Daniel Shube
This year's annual trek to the
PGA Merdi,,iridi-r Shb. in Orlan-
do ricliidj-d a rriL'. ot new adven-
tures and visits to favorites that I
have seen in the past. In future
columns I'll fill you in on the latest
innovations in golf equipment,
accessories, teaching aides and
apparel. However, today's column
will provide some tips on where to
stay and play on your next trip to
Orlando.
My first stop was the world-class
Orlando World Center Marriott
Resort. Located about a 3-wood
away from Disney, Sea World and
Universal, this award-winning
resort makes you want to stay on
property, since there is so much to
do!
I'll begin where I usually do, the
golf course! The Hawks Landing
Golf Course is located just a few
steps from the hotel lobby very
convenient! The Joe Lee course
was recently re-designed by Robert
Cupp. The 6,810-yard par-72 layout
features plenty of sand' and water.
The fairways (if you are lucky
enough to land in them) were well
manicured. The greens were fast
and true. This resort course is chal-
lenging for low-handicappers and
fun for the less accomplished golfer
(from the forward tees). Water
comes into play on 15 holes, so
bring a few extra balls with you. If
you need some help, check out the
Marriott's golf school, where you'll
find Golf Magazine Top 100 Instruc-
tor Bill Madonna. Daily clinics, as
well as one, two and three-day


schools are available. If you need
extra help, try an individual lesson.
After golf, soothe your muscles
with a massage at the spa. The spa
is full-service with a large menu of
treatments to select from. You can
also enjoy a workout in the 4,000
square foot Fitness Center. Or, take
a dip in one of six pools and five hot
tubs. The 600,000-gallon lagoon-
shaped oasis, complete with water-
falls and slides will keep the kiddies
occupied for hours.
This Marriott has 2,000 rooms,
making it the busiest property in
their chain. They will be adding
more rooms in the next few years.
The property had a $130 million
renovation recently, and it was evi-
dent. My guestroom was beautiful
and comfortable. When in town to
golf, hit the parks or a tradeshow, a
good night's sleep is dependent
upon a comfortable room. You
won't go wrong here. There are
also 10 dining options available.
The food I sampled was all excel-

lent. Since traffic in Orlando is often
a problem, dining,at the Marriott is
an easy and delicious option.
One night I did venture out for
dinner and a show. Looking for
something different, I decided to try
a new show in town called Fiascos
Circus and Magic Dinner Show.
This British import had a long run
across the pond and set-up shop in
Orlando several months ago. As a
Britcom fan, I felt like I landed in
John Cleese's Fawlty Towers inn. If
you are searching for the finest din-
ing and a Broadway show, skip
Fiasco's. However, if you don't
mind just a few things that might
go terribly wrong, then you'll find
this show a hoot! I enjoyed it all,
including the magic, high wire, dog
act and even the goldfish races.
They have a large menu to select
from but you will not go wrong


with the fish and chips (stay away
from the mushy peas though!). The
$45 price of admission represents a
good value for dinner and a show
in this town. Kids under 11 are
charged only $25. Several
Owner, Joe Weston-Webb is a
showman who has toured the
world with his human cannon act,
his all girl car and motorcycle stunt
show, his exploding coffin and his
human catapult. Joe designed and
constructed all the equipment by
himself. He serves as master of cer-
emonies for this bizarre, yet fun
evening.

mation about the Orlando World
Center Marriott, go. to mar-
riottworldcenter.com or call (407)

Magic Dinner Show visit fiascos.us

Play Structure
Here's an outdoor play structure with something for
everyone. For kids, it's a tree house, fort and jungle
gym all rolled into one. For parents, it's a sturdy
playhouse with a safety-conscious design and a
clean, unobtrusive look. It features a smooth hard-
board slide, two sandboxes and a gable roof with a
canvas top.
The structure stands a little more than 10 feet tall
and is 6 feet square (not including the ladder or
slide). The floor is about 5 feet off the ground.

Seven Lawn Ornaments
These seven little "cut-ups" won't nibble your lawn,
dig up your flowers or put a bite in your budget
(they're made from scrap plywood). They will add a
touch of whimsy, anywhere, they're displayed, and
they're so easy to make that the whole family can
join the fun.
Simply trace the full-size patterns onto plywood,
cut them out and decorate following detailed painting
instructions. Apply a sealer and enjoy them for years
in the yard or garden; as a weather vane or even on
the nursery wall.
The plan includes full-size traceable patterns and
painting guides for a calf, a duck, a pig, two puppies,
a rooster and a squirrel and range in size from 12
inches to 16 inches tall.
