FEMA aid tops
$4.8 billion
ORLANDO -Approved dis-
aster assistance for Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne has exceeded $4.82 bil-
lion in the State of Florida, and
will climb higher as recovery
efforts for the 2004 hurricanes
proceed.
Michael D. Brown, Under
Secretary of Homeland Security
and head of the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA), reaffirmed the
agency's commitment to Flori-
da during a town hall meeting
in Port Charlotte on Monday. He
stressed that FEMA will remain
in Florida for as long as it takes
to assist individuals in need.
In the seven months since
the first of four hurricanes
impacted the Sunshine State,
FEMA/ State Emergency
Response Team (SERT) Disas-
ter Recovery Centers (DRCs)
continue to serve Floridians
who have application status
and program questions. Nearly
580,000 visitors have been
helped by DRC program spe-
cialists.

Marlins still
struggle at plate
JUPITER Jack McKeon
listened to the question, took a
drag off the cigar dangling from
the side of his mouth, exhaled
and answered.
"It all starts over," the Florida
Marlins manager said. "This
doesn't count."
Good thing, or Florida's
hopes for the 2005 season
would also be going up in
smoke.
The records and stat sheets
get wiped clean on Tuesday,
when the Marlins open the reg-
ular season at home against the
Atlanta Braves. And perhaps no
team in the major leagues will
embrace opening day more
than Florida, which has
endured a mind-boggling series
of offensive struggles through-
out spring training.

New ID: Technology helps keep food supply safe


Staff photo/Katrina Elsken
Michael Bond (left), Extension Agent for the Seminole Tribe of Florida and Moses Osce-
ola (right), president of the Seminole Tribe, show how ID 'buttons' are placed in a cow's
ear. Tagging the animals this way is similar to piercing a human ear with an earring. The
tags contain a 15 digit identification code and can be read with a special scanner.

Cattle tracked 'from birth to table'


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
The Seminole Tribe of Florida is
keeping close tabs on their cattle.
Thanks to a pilot program in
cooperation with the United States
Department of Agriculture and the
Florida Department of Agriculture,
all 25,000 Seminole cattle will soon
be fitted with computer chips in
their ears. These tags, which
respond to a radio signal, will make.
it possible to track an animal from
birth to the dinner table.
The Tribe's participation in the
program has drawn interest from
other cattlemen and praise from
state officials.
State Commissioner of Agricul-
ture, Charles Bronson visited a
Brighton ranch on Thursday to pro-
mote the program.
He said the Seminoles, a tradi-
tional people, are on the cutting
edge of new technology in the cat-
tle business.
"The Seminole Tribe is taking
the lead in this program," said Mr.
Bronson. "I hope the other beef

number is placed in the right ear.


Teen charged in Basswood vandalism


By Maria Chandler
Okeechobee News
A local teen has been arrest-
ed in connection with the recent
'tagging' of the Basswood subdi-
vision that resulted in approxi-
mately $4,700 in damages.
Jesus Torres, an 18-year-old
Okeechobee High School stu-
dent, was arrested March 17 and
charged with criminal mischief.
His bond was set at $2,500. Tor-
res, who is also known as
'Palon', has since bonded out of
the Okeechobee County Jail.
Detective Brad Stark, of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO), said the alleged
tagging occurred between Feb.
9 and Feb. 10.
Detective Stark described
tagging as: "When a person
places graffiti on an object to
identify themselves such as


the gang name or symbol, or the
individual's name or initials.",
The tagging included "SS"
not "55" explained Detective-
Stark, which indicates the local
gang's name.
Not much was spared from
the tagging. Some of the things
tagged in the area include the
entrance to the Basswood sub-
division, stop signs, pavement,
crime watch signs, an Adel-
phia cable box, Sprint tele-
phone service box, an All
Clean Service port-a-let, a
Waste Management dumpster
and even a house that is under
construction.
The Okeechobee County
Road Department has been
made aware of the damage,
and it remains unknown who
will remove the graffiti or
when it will be done.
Detective Stark said the tag-


going is claiming the South 36th
Street area as their 'turf'.
Anyone with information
on who removed the graffiti
from the Basswood entrance
signs is asked to call Detective
Brad Stark at (863) 763-3117.
Detective Stark will also go
before the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Board of County Commis-
sioners in the near future and
encourage them to pass an
ordinance that gang graffiti is
to be removed within a week.
He said there are several areas
in the county that have been
painted with gang graffiti that
has not been removed. The
graffiti has been there for sev-
eral years, he added.
This summer the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office
intends to patrol gang areas in
an effort to deter tagging.

Sixty percent of people
who reach age 65 may need
long-term care at some point
in their lives.
A long -

seminar
was held
Thursday at
Hospice of
Okee-

Speaking at Karen K.

K. Roberts, of Sagemark Con-

Sean Daley and Greg


Thogersen both of Morgan

The seminar was open to
the public at no cost, and
breakfast was provided.
Long-term care kicks into
play when you are no longer
able to take care of yourself,
said Ms. Roberts.
When a person is unable to
perform the normal activities
of daily living -- such as
bathing, dressing, eating, toi-
leting, continence and trans-
ferring -- it may be time to
take advantage of long-term
care.

Third fair linked to petting zoo E. coli outbreak


TALLAHASSEE Officials
have linked a potentially deadly
E. coli outbreak to a third central
Florida fair, saying Thursday that
DNA tests have shown the same
organism also may have infected
people who attended the Florida
State Fair in Tampa in February.
Officials say 22 people -
mostly children in central Florida
- are confirmed to have been


infected by a particular strain of
the E. coli bacteria and some of
them have developed a poten-
tially fatal follow-up disease that
affects the kidneys.
Most attended the Central
Florida Fair in Orlando, or the
Strawberry Festival in Plant City
in March. But Health Secretary
John Agwunobi said Thursday
that at least one person is


believed to have contracted the
infection at the fair in Tampa in
mid-February.
Agwunobi also said officials
are becoming convinced that the
outbreak probably resulted from
contact with animals at petting
zoos at the fairs, because it's the
only common element between
all three festivals.
While he said other causes


haven't been definitively ruled
out, one company, Ag-Venture
Farm Shows of Plant City, provid-
ed the animals for the petting
zoos at all three, Agwunobi said.
"It's increasingly clear to us
that one of the few, if not the
only, bridging event appears to
be a very specific petting zoo -
Ag-Venture," Agwunobi said.
"We have a very strong suspi-


cion that there is an association
with this petting zoo."
, : The company hasn't returned
calls from The Associated Press.
Health officials say the company
is cooperating with the Depart-
.nment of Agriculture in the inves-
t-igation and the animals that
were at the three fairs have been
voluntarily quarantined.

producers will get on board."
Mr. Bronson said the Tribe's
pilot program proves the tagging
system can be managed on a large
or small scale. He said point-of-ori-
gin identification will help keep
America's food supply safe
because it will be much easier to
track from where the animals
came.
"Other than the Spanish Con-
quistadors, the ones who have the
oldest experience with raising cat-
tle in Florida are the Seminoles,"
said Mr. Bronson.
"The talk around the country is
how big can you be to do this and
how efficient will it be?" he said.
"The Seminole Tribe is proving that
even large herds can be managed
this way."

about $2.09 each. The equipment

Mr. Bronson said this will be a
big issue in dealing with all for-
eign trade partners in the future.
He said that in addition to pro-
tecting the consumer, the tagging
system will also help the rancher.
"One thing most feedlots want
to know is where the cattle came
from and which ones had the
highest percentage of lean
meat," he explained.
If a feed lot operator finds that
cattle from a certain ranch pro-
duce a high percentage of lean
meat, he will want to buy more
cattle from that particular ranch.
Mike Milicevic, of the Florida
Cattlemen's Association, said
Lykes Brothers is currently tag-
ging calves that will be sold this
year. He said an incentive is that
some buyers will now pay $10
per head more for cattle with
point-of-source tags. The McDon-
ald's restaurant chain is responsi-
ble for the premium price, he
said, because, for public safety,
they want to purchase beef that
can be traced to point of origin.
Ranchers who want more


information about the tagging
program may contact Michael
Bond at (863) 763-5020, ext. 120;
or e-mail
michaelbond@semtribe.com.
Don Robertson, natural
resources director for the Semi-
nole Tribe, said the tribe has cat-
tle in five locations including
Brighton Seminole Reservation,
Big Cypress Seminole Reserva-
tion and three leased pastures.
The cattle operation is a cow-calf
operation, with "feeder" calves
raised to be shipped to the feed
lots in the Midwest.
The tribe currently has about
14,000 "mama cows" and sells
7,000 to 8,000 feeder calves a
year, primarily through video auc-
tions. About 1,500 replacement
heifers are kept each year.
Cows retired from calf pro-
duction are usually sold at the
Okeechobee Livestock Market.
Culls, noF suitable for the video
auction, are also usually taken to
the Okeechobee Livestock Mar-
ket.

FEMA aid commitment to state exceeds $4.8 billion


ORLANDO Approved disas-
ter assistance for Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne
has exceeded $4.82 billion in the
State of Florida, and will climb
higher as recovery efforts for the
2004 hurricanes proceed.
Michael D. Brown, Under Sec-
retary of Homeland Security and
head of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA),
reaffirmed the agency's commit-
ment to Florida during a town hall


meeting in Port Charlotte on Mon-
day. He stressed that FEMA will
remain in Florida for as long as it
takes to assist individuals in need.
In the seven months since the
first of four hurricanes impacted
the Sunshine State, FEMA/ State
Emergency Response Team
(SERT) Disaster Recovery Centers
(DRCs) continue to serve Floridi-
ans who have application status
and program questions. Nearly
580,000 visitors have been helped


by DRC program specialists.
FEMA housing inspectors are
examining damaged properties
daily, having visited nearly
882,500 dwellings to verify losses.
For individuals with no hous-
ing alternatives, FEMA and the
State of Florida have provided
more than 15,800 manufactured
housing units mobile homes and
travel trailers so displaced resi-
dents can have a safe, sanitary
place to live.


To date, more than 1.247 mil-
lion Floridians applied for federal
and state assistance, receiving
more than $1.168 billion in Indi-
viduals and Households Program
assistance funds. Of that amount,
$615.8 million cover assistance
for other needs, which include
repair or replacement of personal
property, funeral expenses, and
medical and dental costs related
to the hurricanes. Another $551.8
million cover grants to pay for
lodging expenses, rental assis-


tance and minimal home repairs.
Nearly $1.17 billion have been
approved for emergency
response and protective meas-
ures including disbursing ice,
water, ready-to-eat meals and dis-
aster medical assistance immedi-
ately after the hurricanes hit.
More than $869 million have
been obligated in Public Assis-
tance (infrastructure) funds to
reimburse local governments and
certain private, non-profit entities
for recovery efforts they have


undertaken to remove debris, and
repair or rebuild damaged build-
ings and infrastructure.
Applicants with questions
about their application status or
general disaster inquiries may call
the FEMA Helpline at (1) (800)
621-FEMA (3362), or TTY (1)
(800) 462-7585 for the hearing-
and speech-impaired. The lines
operate Monday-Saturday from 8
a.m. until 6 p.m., Eastern Stan-
dard Time.

standing citizens need to make intelligent decisions about pub-
lic issues. In doing so, we strive to report the news with hon-
esty, accuracy, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compas-
