Pioneers build home in 1934
Researched by MaryAnn
Editor's note: This article is
based on an account by Ralph
Wadlow as told to CarrollWad-
low, whose journal is located
in the digital collection of
Library of the University of Flori-
Palmdale, in Glades County
was still a frontier. The Wadlow
family came from Missouri in
1934 for the sake of the health
of the mother of the family,
whose doctors had said she
needed a warmer climate.
Ralph Wadlow later told the
story of his family's early days to
his wife Carroll.
"The mill was shipping heart
pine to Spain at that time. Its
workers sawed off thin boards
until they came to the heart. We
ripped down this rough stuff
with a hand saw to about three
inches wide, to be used to
sheathe the roof.
"We cut all the cabbage fans,
about a thousand, for a mile
around. We tied them into bun-
dles of about 25, as they were
too slick to handle loose. We
placed them in a big circle on
the ground, folding the edges
under and pressing them out
flat by holding them down with
logs for five to seven days. We
put a shingle nail in the end of
each stem, and nailed them in
rows onto the sheathing, begin-
ning at the bottom. We covered
the sides with the smaller, over-
The floor was one-by-six
tongue and groove, from twen-
ty-four inches to thirty-six inch-
es long, with a joist wherever
the ends came.
"We got six windows by
hoeing sweet potatoes for the
Greens (a neighbor) two days a
week. We obtained two doors
from an abandoned house. We
lined the inside with ripped-up
cardboard boxes from the store.
We tacked up a ceiling of
cheesecloth from Sears Roe-
buck to keep the bugs and
snakes from falling down out of
"We made a table and three
chairs out of cypress poles and
scrap boards. Somebody lost a
chair in the road near us, which
gave us one for company. We
had our folding cots from our
Grandma got us a cast-iron
cook stove from a foundry in
Missouri and had it shipped.
Mother lost no time in catching
onto the tricks of cracker cook-
ing. She had to bake her biscuits
with rank, sow belly grease, but
she would put green pepper
slices between them to cover
the flavor. She tenderized tough
beef and venison by wrapping it
in papaya leaves. She canned
guava shells and juice in her
emptied jars until we could get
sugar to make jelly. When we
found turtle eggs she always
made a cake. The fish house
would give us black bass
because it was illegal to sell
them at the time. She would roll

found that the par-4 seventh hole
played much easier if you hit your
tee shot over the 16th green. The
problem was that the golfer play-
ing the 16th hole didn't like it very
much. That shortcut is now
marked "out of bounds". They
had the same situation with the
ninth fairway. Many found it an
easier tee shot oh 18 if they simply
played down the ninth fairway.
Sorry, it's now off limits.
To combat the effects of equip-
ment that propels golf balls far-
ther, Fairwinds has added yardage
to several holes. From-the back of
the tee box at the par-3 fifth hole,
you'll need a shot of, over 220
yards. The par-3 fourteenth hole is
now a monster thanks to a pair of
new tee boxes located back near
the fifth green.
One of the scariest driving
holes is the par-4 tenth. Now even
more so as a new tee box forces
better golfers to hit into a narrow-
er section of the fairway. On
twelve, you need a map to find
the newtee box for the pros and
wanna-be pros. What used to be
a mid-length hole, now checks in.
Sixteen used to be an easy
hole. Any golfer could blast a
drive over the short trees and
bunkers down the right side and
leave a short pitch to the green.
Now the tees have been moved
back and trees added, forcing you
to hit a soft fade to get around the
corner. It's a much better hole. As
if the eighteenth was difficult
enough, there is now a tee box for
the not-faint-of-heart. What may
be the areas toughest finishing
,hole is novv even harder.
. At Eagle Marsh in. J ensen
Beach things have evolved a little
differently. We played there
before the course ever opened
and it was a difficult track. Origi-
nally, Eagle Marsh featured lots of
forced carries, narrow fairways

,cal.ly, "Tiger'proofing" the courses
It seems the pros are getting

using today's technology in clubs
and balls. Many do this by adding
length, making the fairways nar-
rower, growing forests of rough
and speeding up the greens.
All of this talk has made me
think.... what 'changes I have
seen to the Courses I play? I got
together with my usual playing
partner, fellow golf writer an d
radio show host, James Stammer
to see what cha n'ges have
occurred to the courses we play.
Maybe the reason weekend
golfers cannot improve is
because the better golfers have
:'forced the courses to toughen up
so much that we simply don't
have the.talent to play them any
Since we've been writing
about golf, James and I have had
the pleasure of being among the
first to play many courses. Two of
those courses are right in our area
and since it has been years sin ce
we last played them, we thought
,it would be a good idea to sed

When visiting Fairwinds this
past week, we noticed many
changes. The hurricanes have
knocked down many of the trees

. Thanks to James Stammer for
collaborating on this story.
They realized the need for a more
playable course that would attract
the average recreational golfer. Yet
they wanted to keep it challenging
enough for the better players. A
good compromise was found.
Fairways have been widened
where the average player hits a tee
shot, 'tees have been added to
allow the shorter players the abili-
ty to reach the fairways, and the
rough is kept so that it's playable,
but still stops many errant shots
from going into hazards. '
. You will find the biggest
change at.Eagle Marsh at the par-
4 eighteenth. What was once a
nearly impossible hole for high
handicaps has'been modified. To
help the majority of golfers, but
keep a tough finishing hole for, the
better players, a new green was
added. Yes, you have two greens
to choose from. Playing the hole
to original green requires a long,
accurate tee shot that favors the
right side. From there you have a
long shot over a huge wetland to a
large green. If you prefer the easier
route, you can. play to the new
green built straight out-with no
required carry over the hazard.
, .. So as you can see, not all cours-
es evolve or must be made
tougher. This is an example of two
that went in opposite directions to
attract players of all calibers. ;

County Farm Bureaus
will present their ideas
GAINSVILLE Florida Farm
Bureau Federation is on the look-
out for inventive and successful
ideas and activities developed by
farmers and county Farm
Bureaus. Applications are now
being accepted through Sept. 1
for the 2005 Florida Farm Bureau
County Idea Exchange.
"These programs recognize
the unique and resourceful ways
Farm Bureau members and coun-
ty Farms Bureaus address the
numerous challenges faced on
farms and ranches and through-
out the agriculture sector as a
whole", said MaryAnn Kwader,
Florida Farm Bureau Federation
public relations program manag-
Ten county Farm Bureaus will
present their innovative, action-
oriented activities during the Flori-
da Farm Bureau Annual meeting
at Disney's Coronado Springs
Resort in Orlando on Oct. 12-14.
The five program categories are:
Education and Ag Promotion,
Leadership Promotion, Member
Services, Policy Implementation
and Public Relations and informa-
tion. The selected counties will
receive $250 from the Florida
Farm Bureau and winning entries
will be submitted for the 2006
American Farm Bureau Federa-
tion County Activities of Excel-

USDA urged to help
farmers in the panhandle
GAINESVIIhE Florida Farm
Bureau is.urging the U/S/ Depart-
ment of Agriculture to help resi-
dents of the Florida panhandle
who are still suffering from dam-
age to crops and infrastructure
resulting from Hurricane Dennis,
which made early season landfall
Farmsteads in Santa Rosa,
Okaloosa, Escambia and Franklin
counties bore the brunt of the storm
and farmers there are struggling to
repair and rebuild structures as the
harvest season draws near.
"Emergency funding from
USDA is critical," said Florida Farm
Bureau President Carl B. Loop, Jr. in
a letter to USDA secretary Mike
Johanns. "It is my understanding
that over $40 million of the previ-
ously allocated Section 32 hurricane
disaster funds for Florida remains
after all other hurricane damage
claims have been settled from 2004.
I am hopeful that you will consider
using a portion of this remaining
allocation to fund this request"
Loop said Florida Farm Bureau,
the state's largest general interest
agricultural organization, is
emphasizing the plight of West
Florida farmers. Santa Rosa County
was the hardest hit in Florida with
farmers losing about half of the cot-
ton crop and virtually all of the
bean, corn and pea crops. Santa
Rosa also lost an estimated 40 per-
cent of pine trees planted under the
USDA's Conservation Reserve Pro-
gram. Okaloosa and Escambia
counties lost 25-40 percent of the
cotton crop. Other crops were also
damages, as was the oyster indus-
try in coastal communities, particu-
larly in Franklin County.
On July 25, 2005 those counties
were declared federal. disaster
areas, along with Bay, Calhoun,
Gadsden, Gulf, Hernando, Holmes,
Jefferson, Lafayette, Leo, Liberty,
Madison, Taylor, Wakulla and
"Florida Farm Bureau wants
USDA and other government agen-
cies to keep focused on the fact
that the effects of Hurricane Dennis
are still being felt," said Loop. "I
appreciate any assistance you can
provide to further alleviate the pain
being felt by the farm families
impacted by Hurricane Dennis," he
Loop praised USDA's immedi-
ate response in the wake of Den-
nis. The USDA's Food and Nutrition
Service procured USDA food com-
modities for mass feeding in shel-
ters and worked in partnership
with nonprofit agencies including
the Red Cross and Salvation Army.
Local USDA offices also obtained
formula, food and water specifical-
ly for feeding infants in the Florida

These eight adorable lawn ornaments are sure to sur-

den, on the lawn, in a flower bed or even in a child's
room. Ideal for beginning do-it-yourselfers, all that's
required is some scrap lumber, a saw, sandpaper and
paint and sealer (if they're going to be displayed out-
doors). Simply trace the patterns onto wood, cut out,
sand, paint and seal.
The completed lawn ornaments range in size from
12 to 16 inches tall.
The plan includes complete step-by-step instruc-
tions, full-size traceable patterns, materials lists and
painting guides for eight lawn ornaments.
