Big orange balls of pulp have
arrived in Okeechobee. That
means only one thing: it must
be fall! Their arrival sparks an
annual debate and a question
asked by elementary school
teachers across the state. Is a
pumpkin a fruit or vegetable?
Pumpkins are members of
the Cucurbita family which
includes squash and cucum-
bers. According to "Webster's
New World Dictionary", a
squash is a fruit eaten as a veg-
etable. That bit of information
also tells us that a cucumber is a
fruit, not a vegetable. But, that's
another story.
Pumpkins are grown all over
the world on six of the seven
continents, with Antarctica
being the sole exception.
They are believed to have
originated in Central America.


Seeds from related plants have
been found in Mexico, dating
back over 7,000 years to 5500
B.C.
Native Americans used
pumpkin as a staple in their
diets centuries before the pil-
grims landed. When the settlers
arrived, they saw and tasted the
pumpkins grown by the Native
Americans and soon began to
use them as a regular part of
their diet too. Seeds were also
sent back to Europe, where they
quickly became popular.
Pumpkins are popular at Hal-
loween for carving Jack
O'Lanterns, but are used exten-
sively at Thanksgiving for a vari-
ety of dishes and for decorating
the home during the harvest
season.
Did you know that there
were different varieties of pump-
kins and all are edible?
Sugar pumpkin or Sugar


Pie Pumpkins are the best ones
for baking and cooking. They
have a sweeter taste than other
varieties and a smooth texture.
Jack O'Lanterns can be
carved, painted and displayed,
then used in your favorite
recipes when their use as a dec-
oration is done.
Miniatures such as Jack B.
Littles do not have a lot of meat
in them. Most are used as deco-
rations, but they are definitely
edible.
Giant Pumpkins are not as
tasty as normal-sized pumpkins.
Their meat has the ten-
dency to be coarse and stringy.
They are mainly used in cook-
ing.
Pumpkins are also very good

for you. They contain high
amounts of Vitamin and potassi-
um. They are also high in fiber.

Insects plagued Florida settlers


By Katherine Walker Worth
As told to MaryAnn Morris
I was born in Naples August 1,
1924 to Forrest Walker and Adnie
Prine. Walker. I married Fred
Arnold Worth Feb. 8, 1941. I1 sup-
pose I'm related to almost every-
.one around here one way or
another. My grandfather, James
R. Walker came down from Pine
Level in Manatee County after a
bad freeze in the 1890s to what
was then called Survey Creek,
Lee County, with his wife, Ella
and her half-brother, Jehu Whid-
den and his family. They built
their log homes there on 40 acres
of land each they bought from
the government. It took them six
years to pay for it. Now it's called
Bonita Springs. That's a whole
story of its own, but my daddy,
Forrest Walker, was born there
and after he married Mama in
Arcadia, they went to Marco to

live.
We didn't live there all the
time. Mama told me about one
time she and Daddy were living
in Bean City, down near Belle
Glade. She was only 14 years old
when they were married and this
was soon after. Papa and Grand-
daddy went away overnight and
she was all alone. Remember,
she was only 14. She got so
scared, she forgot to keep the
smudge pots lit to keep the mos-


quitoes away and in the morn-
ing, they found the horse dead,
killed by the mosquitoes. She
hated it there and they left soon
after.
My husband's family lived
here in Okeechobee for awhile.
He went to school here in 1926,
'27 and'28.
The mosquitoes were bad
when I was young, too. I remem-
ber there were kinfolks who used
a bucket.with sand in it and we'd
pick up some dry cow chips to
bum for smoke to keep the bugs
away. We had "insect powder" B
Brand it was called. It was yellow.
I don't know exactly what it was,
butwe'd sprinkle some on top of
those burning cow chips or put it
in a tin lid on the floor. It smoked
and Buddy, it worked! It would
kill everything!"

Special to the Okeechobee News/Florida Archives
Mosquitoes were a real problem in South Florida and people
tried desperate and creative means to overcome them. There
was even a mosquito repellant tissue marketed during the
1950s.

blood-sucking flies that plague
Florida's coastline should be less
common this fall, thanks to sum-
mer rains that flooded areas
where the pests breed, says a Uni-
versity of Florida expert.
Biting midges, also known as
no-see-ums, are a constant pres-
ence during warm weather but
appear in greater numbers during
October and November, and
again in April and May, said
Jonathan Day, an entomologist
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. The fall
population boom follows peak
high tides that flood salt marshes
and hatch dormant eggs stock-
piled throughout the summer
months.
This year, summer rainfall left
standing water in many low-lying
coastal areas, making potential
egg-laying sites inaccessible, he
said. Biting midges lay eggs in
muddy soil but cannot deposit
them on top of standing water.
"Their loss is our gain, so to
speak," Day said. "Biting midges
aren't going to disappear alto-
gether this fall, but if you're on the
coast you'll probably get fewer
bites compared with years when
we had a dry summer."
Two coastal biting midge
species are affected by the situa-
tion Culicoides furens, which is

Pecan Topped
Pumpkin Muffins:
Ingredients: 1 cup of mashed
cooked pumpkin or winter
squash, 5 tablespoons melted but-
ter, 5 tablespoons milk, 1 tea-
spoon vanilla, 2 beaten eggs, 16
chopped, pitted dates, land three-
quarter cups of flour; I teaspoon
of baking powder; one-half tea-
spoon of baking soda, 1 teaspoon
of salt, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon,
one-half teaspoon of nutmeg and
one and one-third cups of sugar.
Preparation:
1. Pre-heat oven to 350
degrees. 2. Mix together mashed
cooked pumpkin or winter
squash, melted butter, milk, vanil-
la, beaten eggs and chopped pit-
ted dates. 3. Mix with flour, baking
powder, baking soda, salt, cinna-
mon, nutmeg and sugar. 4. Grease
muffin pans, or use baking cups.
5. Pour batter into muffin pans. 6.
Top each muffin with a pecan half.
7. Bake for 20 minutes and 8.
Allow to cool before serving.
Finally, if you are really creative
and brave, try baking the pump-
kins the way the settlers did. They
hollowed out the pumpkin, mixed
milk, honey and spices inside it
and baked it until done. Good
Luck!

cousins, inland biting midges are
found near lakes, swamps, low-
land marshes and livestock pas-
tures.
Florida is home to about 50
species of biting midges, but only
a handful are significant human
pests, said Roxanne Rutledge,
another entomologist at the UF
laboratory. Rutledge recently
wrote a profile on the biting


midges of Florida, which can be
found online at
http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/aquat
ic/biting_midges.htm.
Adult females feed on blood to
obtain nutrients they need to pro-
duce eggs, and their bites cause a
sharp, burning pain, she said.
Because the midges measure less
than one-eighth of an inch long,
they are seldom seen by their
human hosts.
"The bites can be very annoy-
ing, but in the United States there
are no human diseases caused by
the biting midges," Rutledge said.
"Some people do have a mild
allergic reaction and experience
welts and itching for a couple of
days."
Despite the temporary popula-
tion decline this fall, people going
outdoors in biting midge habitat
should take basic precautions
against the pests, she said.
"Wear long-sleeved shirts and
long pants if possible, and use a
repellent containing DEET on
your exposed skin," Rutledge
said. "Try to avoid outdoor activity
at dawn and dusk, especially if the
air is still."
Biting midges are weak fliers,
so homeowners can blow the
pests away from patios and decks
with large electric fans, she said.
Screened-in pools and porches
may need to be protected with
fans as well, because biting
midges can pass through most
wire mesh.

Unfortunately, little can be
done to control the pests on a
large scale, Rutledge said. No
community in Florida, or any
other state, has a biting-midge
control program.
"The biggest problem is,
there's no option for destroying
the larvae in a way that's econom-
ical, efficient and environmentally
sound," she said.
Because biting midges lay their
eggs in muddy soil, vast areas can
be used for breeding, Rutledge
said. Locating eggs or larvae
requires close examination of soil
samples, which takes time. Even
if larvae are located, there are no
safe, approved insecticides that
can penetrate the mud to reach
them.
"For now, the biting midges
have the upper hand, and we just
have to rely on low- tech solu-
tions," she said.
The lack of large-scale control
options can be frustrating to the
public, and to public-health offi-
cials, said Jonas Stewart, director
of the Volusia County mosquito
control program in Daytona
Beach.
"We get calls from citizens
asking for help with biting
midges, and the only thing we can
do is spray for the adults, which
only works temporarily," Stewart
said. "People sometimes assume
that controlling biting midges is as
easy as controlling mosquitoes
and, unfortunately, it's not."

try and keep them out. They were
just awful and the mosquitoes as
bad!
Granddaddy told that when he
was a young man they hunted cat-
tle around Lake Okeechobee for
Lykes Brothers near where Okee-
chobee is now around Basinger
and Fort Drum. He said the horses
would be knee deep to belly deep
in water. They would take their
bread and their meat that had been
cooked in bear or pork grease in


until it was dried out, but there
were always oranges and grape-
fruit growing in the tree hammocks
they could eat. He said that the Indi-
ans would plant the seeds left after
they had eaten a piece of fruit. So
after they ate a piece of fruit, they'd
plant the seeds, too. When me and
my husband would go deer hunt-
ing, we'd eat them, too. Later peo-
ple would take the old sour orange
root stock and graft the good citrus
on to it.

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.

COP CARS: I don't know who is complaining about the cop cars
dropping off kids at school. Maybe someone is unhappy because
they got a ticket. Maybe they don't like to obey the speed limits and
don't like it when cop cars are around. As a parent, I would be glad if
there cop cars seen at the schools more often because it would help
keep the kids safe. If someone knows there are often cops there
before and after school, then there is going to be less of a chance of
anyone causing any trouble at the school. The kids are most vulner-
able to the bad guys drug dealers, gangs, sex offenders, etc. -
when they are on their way to school or leaving school to go home.
If there are cop cars around, the bad guys are not going to be want-
ing to hang around near a school. Think about it from the viewpoint
of a parent.

NEW ORLEANS: I agree with the caller who said we should help
the people who were left homeless by the hurricanes, but we
should not use tax money to rebuild the parts of New Orleans that
are below sea level. If you are going to build new housing, build the
housing on higher ground. The old part of the city, which is on high-
er ground, did not flood. It was the newer developments that were
built on the old marshland that are now flooded. Frankly, they never
should have built houses on that land to begin with. It was only a
matter of time before it was flooded. It would be foolish to build
there again. Because of its geographic location, New Orleans should
not be as big as it was. They crowded in housing in areas that were
not safe. Now we are all paying the price.

CORRUPTION: I wonder if the people who were so fast to blame
the president for the fact that they levies failed in New Orleans are
reading the papers now and watching the news. The problem was
not that Louisiana was not given enough funding to make the levies
safe. It now appears that the levies may not have been built to code
to begin with, and that someone probably took a payoff to sign off
on the work. New Orleans is famous for its corrupt politicians. I sus-
pect the corruption within the local government there was the root
of all of the problems.

AGRI-CIVIC CENTER: I am glad that the county commissioners
are finally considering the possibility that they need to give people a
break with the prices on the aggravation center. The place is empty
most days because people cannot afford to use it. Our tax dollars
paid for the thing, even if it is not what we thought we were going to
get. Our tax dollars pay the upkeep. They could at least let us use it
at a reasonable fee. It is not really suitable for many things. Who
wants to have a concert in a place that isn't air conditioned? Having
graduation there was a disaster when they tried. it. What we really
needed was a big hall like the Doyle Conner building in Moore
Haven or the John Boy Auditorium in Clewiston. What we got was a
fancy rodeo arena, which is not as big as .the rodeo arena already in
town. But for those who can use it, they could at least make it more
affordable. What good does it do anyone just sitting empty?

I was provided the transcript of
an interview by Kelly Tilghman of
The Golf Channel and Tiger Woods
that was conducted in'Las Vegas. It
provides some insight into Tiger's
year, his equipment and his
thoughts on his game. It is rather
lengthy, so I have edited it down for
your reading enjoyment.
Kelly Tilghman: Tiger, I'll begin
with your two Major championship
wins, three other wins this year
including the dramatic theater at
Doral against Phil Mickelson. That
was something to watch right
there. Your No. 1 world ranking is
fully intact. Once again early in the
spring you regained that. Incredible
season. Share some of your
thoughts on 2005 what it means to
you.
Tiger Woods: The season has
been absolutely incredible. I won S[
two tournaments prior to Augusta,
so I had a bunch of confidence The SaQ
going in and I have played not so tures a
well starting out. Put a ball in the with less

onship to go ahead and make the
switch. I went to graphite, went to Nan

it, I thought it was BS. I went on the and/or c

I said, "Hey, this is pretty sweet."

quite got the numbers,
ere I'd like to have them


so far. But as everyone knows, I am
kind of the last one to switch. I am a
little slow on the draw, so until
something I see is better than what
I am using right now, I won't make
the switch. It's really close, just a
matter of time before they hit it
right on the number and off I go
and probably pick up a little bit
more distance as well, and also
shapeability.
K.T.: In your opinion, how will
the SasQuatch (Nike's,new driver)
fare with the consumers out there?
T.W: Well, I tell you what, I
think they hit the ball higher. Geom-
etry certainly helps them. I was test-
ing with John Cook. Cookie was
hitting the SasQuatch and he actu-
ally hit mine with the wrong shaft
in it. But he was hitting it with a little
heavier shaft than he's accustomed
to and he was hitting it further. It
helped him because he has a ten-
dency to cut the ball a little bit. It
cured that. He hit the ball off
straighter, turned the ball over, hit
the ball flatter, higher but flatter and
he was pretty excited about it.
So it certainly can help Tour
players and it certainly can help
amateurs. Amateurs slice the ball
more than we do, unfortunately. I
think it certainly will help them a
lot.
K.T.: What about the
SasQuatch Fairway woods, are you
testing those as well? '*
T.W: I have tested it. It's pretty
cool. I can actually hit a 3-4ood up
in the air. My 3-wood right now, the
T60, l am hitting it further and flatter
but I would like to hit the ball a little
bit higher because I have found
that I am driving the ball so much
better that I don't really hit a
3-wood off the tee as much. My
3-wood was basically put in play to
hit the ball further than my previous
3-wood, Titleist 3-wood, so I can hit
the ball off the tee, not into the par
5s. Well now, I am not afraid to.pull

Farm Bureau backs


Fla.'s honey industry


GAINESVILLE- Florida
ranks number three in the
nation in production of honey,
right behind California and
North Dakota. But Florida bee-
keepers are struggling for sur-
vival, beleaguered by pests, hur-
ricanes and low honey prices.
They are seeking ways to guar-
antee the continued viability of
their industry.
Solutions to their problems
may at least in part lie with
new marketing techniques,
including vertical integration,
new quality standards and devel-
oping a distinctive "brand" to
differentiate Florida honey from
run-of-the-mill product.
"We are encouraging produc-
ers and packers to develop a
sound marketing approach to
improve profitability," said Car-
olee Howe, a Florida Farm
Bureau assistant. director of agri-
cultural policy assigned to work
with the apiary segment of the
agricultural industry.
Florida Farm, Bureau, the
state's largest general agricultur-
al organization, brought bee-
keepers and packers together
with marketing experts from the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services.
The result may be a new market-
ing cooperative.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson has
expressed concern about set-
backs suffered by the state's
honey industry, including
destruction of honeybee
colonies caused by mites and


"We are encouraging
producers and packers
to develop a. sound
marketing approach to
improve profitability."
Carolee Howe,
Florida Farm Bureau
assistant director of
agricultural policy
hurricanes and declining prices
due to cheap, imported honey.
He has assigned the Depart-
ment's Division of Marketing
and Development to help devel-
op strategies to ensure the future
viability of the honey industry.
"Many other segments of the,
agricultural industry have a
stake in making sure beekeepers
continue to operate in the state,"
Howe said. "Bees are necessary
for pollination of citrus, melons
and many other crops."
Farm Bureau has hosted sev-
eral strategy sessions, the latest
with representatives of the
FDACS Marketing Division. At,
that meeting several producers
and packers last week agreed to
explore the creation of a cooper-
ative.
Florida honey producers and,
packers who want information
about the formation of the mar-
keting cooperative can contact
Jerry Latner, president of the
industry steering committee, at
(877) 832-3268 or email to: bee-
maniq@aol,com.
