In Brief

Boil water notice
The Okeechobee Utility
Authority (OUA) boil water
notice for the area north of
State Road 70 has been
extended until noon on Mon-
day, June 20. The boil water
notice was issued because of
a broken water line.
As a precaution OUA
advises that all water used
for drinking or cooking be
boiled. A rolling boil of one
minute is sufficient. As an
alternative bottled water may
be used.
The "Precautionary Boil
Water Notice" will remain in
effect until the problem has
been corrected and a bacteri-
ological survey shows that
the water is safe to drink.
OUA anticipates no adverse
effects as a result of this
problem and is working as
quickly as possible to restore
the water service.
OUA apologizes for any
inconvenience this tempo-
rary interruption may cause
customers and thanks them
for their understanding and
cooperation concerning this
matter.

City Council


may change


to Comcast


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee City Coun-
cil will consider changing cable
providers at their meeting Tues-
day night.
Council members will review
a resolution for the city to trans-
fer assignment and change con-
trol from Adelphia Communica-
tions Corporation to Comcast
Corporation as the cable televi-
sion provider for the City of
Okeechobee. Adelphia is in
Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceed-
ings.
The owners of Adelphia and
Comcast are in agreement that
Comcast will provide such serv-


ices and the city will discuss the
switch and most likely agree to
it. The switch is expected to be a
smooth transition for cable cus-
tomers.
David and Anita Nunez are in
the final stages of getting their
property finally approved and
ready to sell to prospective
home builders. The council will
discuss the final plat request for
the Airi Acres subdivision, which
has already gone through pre-
application and preliminary plat
procedures. The subdivision
comprises 24 half-acre lots that
will be sold for single-family
homes.

last year's destructive hurricane
season we find ourselves already
into the next season.
I will agree that there are people
in Okeechobee with a lot more
experience when it involves a hurri-
cane, but you can't be too prepared
for a storm of destructive power.
After losing my home last year
because of just one of the two hur-
ricanes that hit here, I know from
personal experience that surviving
the storm is just the beginning of
hardships that affect all of us in one
way or the other.
Preparing for a hurricane sea-
son should be like preparing for
earthquakes in California, a torna-
do in Oklahoma or a flood when
you live next to a river these nat-
ural events will take place sooner
or later, it is just a matter of when.
There are my things you can do
to prepare for a hurricane like: pur-
chase a generator, flashlights, ply-
wood, dried goods and coolers of
ice.
You also should take an invento-
ry of all valuables in your home,
and even take plenty of pictures.
And especially make plans to
take shelter or even evacuate if nec-


essary.
Then during and after the
storm, be prepared for no electrici-
ty, water, telephones or cell
phones.
Then once the storm passes you
still have to be cautious of downed
power lines, leaking gas lines, fall-
en trees, weakened structures and
roadways that are not accessible
for traffic.
Remember, that the only means
of communication to the outside
world might only be a battery pow-
ered radio or television and keep
in mind that it can last for days.
But more important than any-
thing else, keep in mind that you
are not alone and hurricanes affect
all of us in one way or another so
you might as well plan on being
patient when it comes to recovery.
All of us are stressed so try to be
nice and remember there could
always be someone suffering more
thanyou.
But I guess the most important
thing to remember about this hurri-
cane season is to remember what
happened last year and learn
from it.

Looking Back ...
This Brahman bull was brought in from Texas during the
1940s by Frank Williamson, Sr. The Brahman was one of
the first purebred bulls used by Okeechobee beef cattle
producers in cross breeding programs. The hardy strain
has the ability to tolerate Florida's sub-tropical climate
better than some other purebred strains. While many
Okeechobee ranchers still maintain purebred Brahman
herds, it is more common to have crossbred herds of
Braford and Brangus cattle. Do you have any old photos
of the Okeechobee area or of Okeechobee citizens? If
so, bring them by the Okeechobee News office, 107 S.W.
17th St., and we can copy them while you wait. Or, you
can e-mail the photo and information about the photo to
okeenews@okeechobee.com.

Watching doodlebugs is great summer fun for kids


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
One of the lesser known crea-
tures found in Florida Yards are ant
lions, the larva of a dragonfly rela-
tive. They dig cone shaped pits in
sandy soil and trap ants as food.
Here in the South, the critters are
known as doodlebugs. They are
beneficial insects that should be left
alone because they are a "free land-
scape pesticide" they eat many
insect pests.
One Florida entomologist
claims that a normal, healthy child-
hood in Florida requires knowl-
edge and experiences with the
doodlebug. Parents looking for
summer fun alternatives to televi-
sion and video games might find
that looking for and playing with
these unusual Florida Yard inhabi-
tants might occupy a child's atten-
tion for some time. Who knows -
they may spark an interest in the
natural world. Information for
today's column comes from Uni-
versity of Florida's Extension Ento-
mologists and a website titled "The
Ant lion Pit."
The adult ant lion looks much
like a damselfly, a dragon-fly like
insect. A big difference is that their
antennae are shorter and are bent
or clubbed. Adult insects measure
1-2 inches long and their body is
colored brown to gray. They have
four equal-sized wings, 2-3 inches
long, that may be either transparent
or irregularly spotted.
Adult doodlebugs rest in hidden
places and are hard to notice. At

IFAS EXTENSION

night they become active, search-
ing for a mate and attracted to
lights. Females lay eggs in warm,
dry sandy sites. When a female
finds the right spot, she taps her
abdomen and then inserts a single
egg below ground. Several eggs
may be laid in the same area, up to
20 eggs per site.
Eggs hatch into hungry ant
lions. They dig a shallow upside-
down cone-shaped pit up to an
inch deep. As they move across the
sand, they leave spiral-shaped
trails. This curious motion gives
these critters the nickname 'doo-
dlebugs.'
As the circle grows ever wider
and deeper, the doodlebug throws
out the soil with its head. A pit can
be built in 15 minutes. Finally it
buries itself so that only the head,
with large menacing looking
mandibles, is above ground at the
bottom of the pit.
They wait for an ant or other
insect to slip on the loose sand and
fall in. As they slide over the edge
and into the pit, the large jaws of
the waiting ant lion paralyze the ant
with an injection of poison. The ant
lion then sucks out the vital juices.
The juice-less skeletal remains of
the prey are thrown out of the pit.
When prey manage to stop
their slide into the crater, the ant


lion throws sand at its next meal,
causing the captive to lose its grip
and continue the inevitable fall to
its doom at the bottom.
Ant lions have forward-pointing
hairs on their body that help
anchor it in the soil. This allows
them to capture struggling prey
much larger than itself. Winged
adult ant lions that are laying eggs
may even be captured and eaten by
their younger relatives.

Observing
Doodlebugs
Ant lions pits can be found in
sheltered, sandy areas where the
soil easily shifts. Look for dry, sunny
spots sheltered from wind and rain,
particularly on south-facing slopes.
Small populations can be seen in
grass-free areas next to the air con-
ditioners. Other popular sites to
view ant lions are under buildings
built on piers, in sandy flower beds
without mulch and under hedges
or eaves of buildings. One author
reports that larger craters mean
hungrier ant lions, and that bigger
pits are built at the full moon.
Taking ant lions out of their
habitat for closer observation
is risky to the ant lion. Be prepared
to feed it with the ants you catch.
Twice-daily feedings will provide
enough food for survival. Put the
ant lion in any container filled with
a layer of at least 3 inches of sand to
allow the insect to build its pits. The
container should also be at least 5
inches wide for each ant lion to pre-
vent overcrowding.

Pesky birds
The Baker family recently awoke to a strange sight in their front yard. A flock of 48 pink
flamingos had taken up residency in front of their home. The Baker family pooch seemed.
bewildered as he ran from bird to bird and got no response to his sniffing and barking.
The flamingos are part of the new fund raiser of Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation. For a
donation the wildlife experts will come and remove the pesky birds from a person's yard.

Return ant lions to their source
before it finishes its larval stage, or if
kept longer, the container should
be covered so that the adult-won't
escape. They have a knack for
emerging from its cocoon when
you're not watching. A stick placed
upright in the sand will provide the
newly emerged adult with a place
to rest while its wings expand and
harden properly. If held captive any
longer than a day after it emerges
from its cocoon, adults will lose
energy and may die before it has a
chance to reproduce.
If you encounter doodlebugs,
don't spray pesticides in their area
unless absolutely necessary. They
are beneficial insects and keep
down pests in your Florida Yard.
Following this advice will also
allow for a safer spot for kids (of all
ages) to have some summer fun
and a place to learn about their nat-
uralworld.
For those with a computer,
there are some really neat ant lion
websites. "The Ant lion Pit" shows
videos of these fascinating ani-
mals as they feed and grow, and
how and where to find ant lions.
I've placed some of these links on
our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you need additional information

dents can stop by our office at 458

Local barrel racer wins



world championship


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Ashlee Ziglar is a 19-year old
freshman at Vernon Junior Col-
lege in Vernon, Texas. The Okee-
chobee High School graduate
won the Florida High School
Rodeo Championship in 2001
and 2002. She was reserve cham-
pion in 2003. Ashlee.received a
rodeo scholarship to attend Ver-
non Junior College where she is
currently studying nursing -while
competing in national barrel rac-
Sing competition.
Ashlee teamed up with Cash
Stasher Two in February after the
horse she was competing with
was. injured. Cash Stasher is
owned by Charlotte Cunning-
ham, an accomplished barrel
horse trainer and long time com-
petitor. The team traveled to
Texas to compete in the Josey Jr.

Ashlee Ziglar and team mate
Cash Stasher Two recently
won the Josey Junior World
Barrel Racing Championship
in Texas.
' ell-knou.\n, tough contestants
still to make their runs, all Ashlee


and Stash could do was wait. Ash-
lee knew that she had sewn up
third place and was already cele-
brating that- incredible accom-
plishment when the next rider
tipped over a barrel, moving Ash-
lee into the second place Reserve
Champion spot. The last com-
petitor didn't make the run she
needed pushing Ashlee and Stash
into first place.
After returning to Okeechobee
with her mother Katrina, Ashlee
was still in shock. She stated that
her goal had been to get back to
the finals in the top 20.
"When I made my last run, I
realized I had just won a saddle,"
stated Ashlee. It took a while for
her to realize that she had won
more' than just a saddle. She had
won the championship she had
been dreaming of since she was a
little, girl putting her at the top of
her chbsea.sport. .
. "My parents, Tommy'and Kat-
rina, have hauled me up arid
down the rode since I % %as 6 \ ears
old and have been so supporrt'e
of me through the \ears. Without
my family, including m\ sister Jes-
sica, I \wouldn't be where I am
now," she stated.

Jokes, tips and anecdotes


in the spirit of the Opens


By Daniel Shube
In the spirit of the U.S. Open and
the upcoming British Open, I've
decided to open this column to an
assortment of tips, anecdotes and
jokes. Here goes:
Putting tip
Aim for the back of the cup.
Don't move your legs or your head-
keep 'em steady and stroke the ball
with confidence. Contributed by
from Judy Alvarez, PGA/LPGA
Teaching Professional.
Ball above feet
The tendency of this shot will be
to pull, or curve the ball to the left *
(or right for left-handers). Allow for
this by aiming slightly to the right
(left for left-handers) of the target.
Stand farther away from the ball
than usual, withyour weight toward
the balls of your feet. Grip down on,
the club, with the ball placed in the
ce,-nter of -,.fur stini' Tip c''LuIte-\'
-,i rinisL'ro I. .,'',l-if i c
Golf definitions
'When a struck ball unintention-
Allv eets to the left it is known as a
hook When a struck ball uninten-
tionallyveers to the right it is known
as a slice When. a struck ball does
not veer but instead flies straight
forward it is known as either a lie or
a miracle.
Putting class
A little girl was at her first golf
lesson when she asked an interest-
ing question: "Is the word spelt p-u-
t or p-u-t-t?" she asked the instruc-
tor. "P-u-t-t is correct," he replied.
"Put means to place a thing where
you want'it. Putt means merely a
vain attempt to do the same thing."
The laws of golf
1. If you really want to get better
at golf, go back and take it up at a
much earlier agei
2.,The game of golf is 90 percent
mental and 10 percent mental.
3. Since bad shots come in
groups of three, a fourth bad shot is
actually the beginning of the next


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube


group of three.
4. When you look up, causing
an awful shot, you will always look
down again at e'..i.ib ii moment
when you ought to start watching
the ball if you ever want to see it
again.
.5. Any change works for a maxi-
mum of three holes or at a mini-
mum of not at all.
6. No matter how bad you are
playing, it is always possible to play
7. I let [to i.'keep more than
n00 s-,.- ;.- 1i,. .:-ii. ii i our m ind

8. When your shot has to carry
over a water hazard, you can either
hit one more club or two more
balls.
9. If you're afraid a full shot
might reach, the green while the
foursome ahead, of you is still put-
ting out, you have two options: you
can immediately shank a lay-up, or
you can wait until the green is clear
and top a ball halfway there.
10.. The less skilled the player,
the more likely he is to share his
ideas about the golf swing.
11. The inevitable result of any
golf lesson is the instant elimination
of the one critical unconscious
motion that allowed you to com-
pensate for all of your r,,aii.-' onil i,
errors.
12. If it ain't broke, try changing
your grip.
13. Golfers who claim t, e di.'tN
cheat, also lie.
14. Everyone replaces his divot
after a perfect approach shot.
15. A golf match is a test of your
skill against your opponent's luck.


16. Its surprisingly easy to hole a
50-foot putt when you lie 8.
17. Counting on your opponent
to inform you when he breaks a
rule it's like expecting him to make
fun of his own haircut.
18. Nonchalant putts count the
same as chalant putts.
19. It's not a gimme ifyou're still
away.
20. The shortest distance
between any two points on a golf
course is a straight line that passes
directly through the center of a very
large tree..
21. There are two kinds of
bounces: unfair bounces, and
bounces just the way you meant to
playit.
22. You can hit a 2-acre fairway
10% of the time, and a 2-inch
branch 90 percent of the time.
23. Every time a golfer makes a
birdie, he must subsequently make
two triple bogeys to restore the fun-
damental equilibrium of the uni-
verse.
24. If you want to hit a 7-irop as
far as Tiger Woods does, simply try
to lay up just short of a water haz-
ard.
25. To calculate the speed of a
player's downswing, multiply the
speed of his backswing by his
handicap. Example: backswing 20
mph, handicap 15, downswing
600mph.
26. There are two things you
can learn by stopping your back-
swing at the top and checking the
position of your hands: how many
hands you have, and which one is
wearing the glove.
27. Hazards attract; fairways
repel.
28. You can put "draw" on the
ball, you can put "fade" on the ball,
but no golfer can put "straight" on
the ball.
29. A ball you can see in the
rough from 50 yards away is not
yours.
" 30. If there is a ball in the fringe
and a ball in the bunker, your ball is
in the bunker.
31. If both balls are in the
bunker, yours is in the footprint.
32. Don't buy a putter until
you've had a chance to throw it.
