From Okeechobee with love: Relief supplies on their way

Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
The community of Okeechobee came together this past week to collect supplies for hurricane stricken Franklinton,
La. The Chamber of Commerce, assisted by the Okeechobee News, spearheaded the adoption of this small town
north of New Orleans that took a hard hit by Hurricane Katrina. Volunteers gathered Saturday morning to pack the
truck and send it on its way to Franklinton.

The past week has been a
busy one at the VFW Post on
U.S. Highway 441. S.E. The
VFW donated the use of their
main hall as a "depot" and
packing station for relief sup-
plies for the victims of Hurri-
cane Katrina. The Okee-
chobee community "adopted"
the tiny rural town of Franklin-
ton, La., and volunteers were
busy collecting and packing
supplies.
Okeechobee residents
opened their hearts to the peo-
ple of Franklinton, feeling an
empathy with another small
town hit by a hurricane. The
VFW hall soon filled with
donations of canned food,
baby supplies, health supplies,
blankets, sleeping bags, insect


repellant and other supplies.
Debbie Clemmons at the
Okeechobee Livestock Market
organized a drive to collect
"Ziploves," and soon, hun-
dreds of the gift packages filled
boxes at the VFW. Ziploves are
two gallon size Ziploc bags
containing an outfit along with
small gifts. Each Ziplove was
marked with the clothing type
and size to make distribution
easier.
Volunteers worked in two
shifts Wednesday, Thursday
and Friday. The "night.shift"
sorted supplies and clothing
and boxed up items ready to
go. The "day" shift made up.

report is


reviewed
By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
Years of public outcry have
led to the funding of scientific
study and legislative action to
halt or reverse the damage to the
ecosystems of South Florida.
The South Florida Environmen-
tal Report, prepared by South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) and mandated by
law, is this effort's report card for
the year.
The draft of Volume I of the
2006 report, "The South Florida
Environment" provides data
summaries for all majdr ecosys-
tems in South Florida during
S"water year" 2005 (May 1, 2004
through April 30, 2005). Public
comment can be made via a
web blog on the SFWMD web-
site www.sfwmd.gov.
The South Florida environ-
ment is large, complex and
diverse. Behind this report is a
governmental, scientific and a
legal context. The Everglades is
an internationally recognized
ecosystem that covers about
3,474 square miles. It is the
largest subtropical wetland in
the United States. Originally the
Everglades extended from the
south shore of Lake Okee-
chobee to the mangrove estuar-
ies of Florida Bay. More than half
of that has been lost to man-
made drainage and develop-
ment, including the Everglades
Agricultural Area located south
of Lake Okeechobee. Today's
remaining Everglades are the
Water Conservation Areas
(WCAs) and Everglades Nation-
al Park.
Many areas are of concern
when considering the health of
the Everglades and the health of
residents of this ecologically rich
and diverse region.
The Everglades Agricultural
Area (EAA): Miles of highly pro-
ductive agricultural land con-
tains rich, organic peat or muck
soils. About 77 percent is in agri-

Early visitors to Florida
found a pristine environment
rich in wildlife and foliage.
"Just south of Palmdale, we
crossed Fisheating Creek, a pic-
turesque stream, meandering
through the almost uninhabit-
ed prairie, between banks
either exposed to the sun or
clothed in shrubs and bright
colored asters or hammocks of
oaks, ash and maple which in
some places give way to groves
of palmettos that often lean far
over the water's edge," wrote
John Kunkle Small in his
account of a trip he made in
1917 to visit the Big Cypress.
"After leaving the hammocks

Floyd Wilder came as a boy

trees were covered with moon-
vines that would die when the
frost got to them in the winter.
The custard apple was dormant
in the winter, would get new
leaves in the spring and the
mooonvines would sprout out
again. My father cleared virgin
land and farmed it for the first
time. Custard apple trees were
no great problem to clear, but
there were small elderberry
trees that were hard to get up.

Access to SAT prep program available


BREVARD COUNTY Start-
ing immediately, every public
high school in Florida is going to
have free access to testGEAR for
SAT an online test preparation
program from Bridges Transi-
tions. The Florida Department of
Education and Wachovia Educa-
tion Finance recently signed an
agreement with Bridges to bring
this product to the schools.
"We're excited to have the
opportunity to use this online
tool to help students be success-
ful on college bound tests," said
David Goodman, Student Ser-
vices Resource Teacher for Bre-
vard County School District.
"Our students will appreciate
testGEAR's versatility. It will be a
big motivator in preparing for
the rigors of college admis-
sions."
Bridges' testGEAR products
assist students in improving test
scores on U.S. college entrance
exams such as the SAT, PSAT,
ACT and High School State Exit
Exams. TestGEAR test prep pro-
vides every student the same.
advantage to be extremely
prepared and demonstrate their
true potential as they ready
themselves for their post sec-
ondary educational experience.
TestGEAR online test prep
courses offer students a person-


alized study plan (based on a
brief diagnostic test) that
strengthens content skills, intro-
duces test-taking strategies and
builds confidence with many
short practice tests and full-
length exams.
The online test prep program
gives a student over 60 hours of
coursework.
The student can choose to do
the entire 60-hour program, or
can also choose to complete
parts of the program...depend-
ing on their time and motivation.
Many schools use testGEAR right'
in their curriculum, giving'stu-
dents testGEAR homework and
assignments for classroom
grades. Other schools choose to
give testGEAR to their students
as a standalone product allow-
ing students to work at their own
pace, on their own time.
"Through a combination of
public and private funding of
testGEAR for SAT, we are able to
provide tremendous value to col-
lege-bound high school students
in Florida and the educators
serving them," said John Sim-
mons, Chief Executive Officer at
Bridges. "We are delighted to
have been chosen by the Florida
Department of Education as the
provider of this key component
for SAT test preparation success.


At the same time, we are excited
about partnering with Wachovia
- one of the most respected
names in the financial services
industry to deliver this serv-
ice."
"Wachovia's involvement in
this program illustrates our com-
mitment to higher education in
Florida," said Doris Grose, Presi-
dent of Wachovia Education

preparation initiative in Florida,
we will provide teachers, coun-
selors, students and parents with
excellent tools to prepare stu-
dents to enter college."
Zelda Rogers, of the Florida
Department of Education, said:
"We've been using Choices in
Florida for the last 26 years. The
college and career planning
resources provided by Bridges
are critical to helping students
prepare adequately for their
future beyond high school. With
the addition of testGEAR for SAT
we now have a complete, first
class suite of college and career
preparation products available
to all students.
Nearly 600 public high
schools and combined schools
throughout Florida will have
access to testGEAR for SAT. Stu-
dents can also access testGEAR

er 24/7. We are excited about
this launch and look forward to
seeing a positive impact on SAT
test results."

Farm Bureau launches hurricane relief efforts


WASHINGTON, D.C., Septem-
ber 1, 2005 The American Farm
Bureau Federation said today that
contributions to established chari-
ties are the best way to supply
immediate aid to hurricane vic-
tims, but to provide longer-term
assistance to affected farm and
ranch families and rural commu-
nities has initiated a nationwide
effort to raise money and collect
food donations.
"We encourage all Americans
to donate to their local charitable
organizations, including church-
es, the American Red Cross, and
America's Second Harvest, who
are all doing their best to provide
direct and immediate relief to dis-
placed and homeless people in
the areas hit hard by Hurricane
Katrina," said AFBF President Bob
Stallman. "AFBF will make a
donation to our long-time part-


ners at America's Second Harvest
to provide immediate food relief."
"By establishing the Farm
Bureau Hurricane Ag Fund we
hope to provide a donation
option for people wishing to
assist the farm families and rural.
residents who were left in the
wake of hurricane destruction,
Stallman said, "Every dollar we
collect will be earmarked for
helping farm and ranch families
or their rural communities get
back on their feet and back to the
business of producing our
nation's food and fiber."
Stallman said contributions
will be dispersed to agricultural or
rural-related charities selected by
state Farm Bureaus in Florida,
Louisiana and Mississippi, and the
Alabama Farmers Federation.
The American Farm Bureau
also will contribute to the Hurri-


cane Ag Fund, and Stallman said
that county Farm Bureaus, state
Farm Bureaus and individual
members may mail checks direct-'
ly to the AFB Foundation. Dona-
tions are tax deductible when
made out to AFBFA/Hurricane Ag
Fund. Checks should be mailed
to: AFBFA/Hurricane Ag Fund, 600
Maryland Avenue, S.W, Suite 800,
Washington, D.C. 20024.
In addition to the Hurricane Ag
Fund, the American Farm Bureau
Women's Committee and Young
Farmers & Ranchers Committee
also are reaching out to America's
Second Harvest in an effort to
ensure that people in the hurri-
cane zone are fed.
"We encourage Farm Bureau
members to donate appropriate
food items to the America's Sec-
ond Harvest network of food
banks," said Terry Gilbert, chair of


the American Farm Bureau
Women's Committee. "Those of
us blessed with so much have the
opportunity to help those in des-
perate need, simply by opening
our own pantries," she said.
"I am confident that America's
young farmers and ranchers will
rise to the challenge of supplying
hurricane victims with one of the
most basic things we all take for
granted safe, nutritious food,"
said Ben Boyd, chair of the nation-
al American Farm Bureau Young
Farmer & Rancher Committee.
