The Upthegroves were fishermen


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and histo-
rian, Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valen-
tine wrote much about the histo-
ry of the people and places
around Lake Okeechobee and
about the lake itself. Together
with Okeechobee's Betty
Wlliamson, president of the
Okeechobee Historical Society,
she co-authored a book, now in
its second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee. The following story is
from an interview Mrs. Valentine
conducted with Lola Upthegrove
in 1984. Mrs. Upthegrove was 94
atthetime.
Mrs. Upthegrove recalled:
"As the Raulersons came to
Okeechobee to raise cattle, oth-
ers came to fish. One early fishing
family is the Upthegroves. Broth-
ers and sons came and made a
settlement on the east shore of


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





Lake Okeechobee, just south of
Nubbin Slough along U.S. 441
South. Ed Upthegrove had
moved north along the shore of
the lake to join his brothers. His
original encampment and the
house he built were located at
Sand Cut. It was there that anoth-
er brother arrived from Mr. Myers
in 1914. This was John Upthe-
grove who came with his wife,
Emma and their eight children.
Lola Upthegrove (Williams) was
just 10 years old when they
moved to Sand Cut
"We lived at Sand Cut,


between the St. Lucie Canal and
the Palm Beach Canal. There was
a little subdivision that was there
because we had a good haul
gourd. For a long item, the boats
from Ft. Lauderdale would pick
up our fish -and bring our gro-
ceries. They would make a round
trip in about a week. Of course,
you didn't buy much.
"When we knew there was a
store in Okeechobee, we started
buying our groceries there. There
wasn't nothing but a footpath
from Taylor creek where Poppa
put his boat to the Raulerson
Store. We would walk that foot-
path to the store and that was the
town. It was a two day trip. You
could not make it in one day. We
brought the fish in time for the
train. It only ran once a day and it
would be too late to get back that
same day so we'd spend the
night.
"Every fisherman had his haul
ground. They had to work hard to

Ed and Jim Upthegrove settled along the east shore of Lake
Okeechobee to fish around the time Raulersons were making
their mark in Tantie, which soon came to be known as Okee-
chobee.

When tUpthegrove's learned that Raulerson's Store had
opened in Okeechobee, they walked to sell their fish and
pick up supplies. It took a full day each way.

clean them up and to get the rocks
and things out to the water. On the
south side of us, past the Palm
Beach Canal, there were some
sand beaches, but north of Canal
Point, itwas all rocky."
Mrs. Williams remembered the
custard apple forests which cov-
ered the eastern and southeastern
shore of the lake.
"The roots of the custard apple
\vere what the fishermen used for
floats on their trot lines. They're
light. They would cut those roots
and those trees made some big
roots! The roots would keep the
lines from laying on the.bottom and

you didn't hurt the tree to get the
roots.
Where \ e lived (Sand Cuot was
in the custard apple sxxamp. That's
.what they called it ".. a swamp.
There was lots of water. At times of
the year, the water would come up.
Our house was ip (:,ri a ridge and if
you had a garden, it would drown it
out. But, you know, okra will grow
in the water., Our okra would be
high and my brother would take his
boat and go out and cut the okra.
The water would be four foot deep
and hewould cut the okra from his
boat. We always had a bid garden.
We had to with all us kids. But most
of that garden would get drowned
out. That's mostly what we ate. We
had the fish and vegetables. The
stuff you had to, buy, sugar, flour
and such was always a problem.",

Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
FOUR WHEELERS: I have been reading the Speak Out comments
about four wheelers and three wheelers. It is against the law to operate
one of these vehicles on a street. Period. Against the law. If the cops
catch you, they can arrest you. So don't let your kids ride their ATVs on
the street. It is very dangerous for kids to ride ATVs on the street. I have
seen them run into cars and pull out onto the street right in front of
cars. If a car and an ATV collide, the kid on the ATV is going to be the
one injured. If you doubt how dangerous these machines are, trying
spending some time in the emergency room. ATVs, go carts and golf
carts are not licensed vehicles. They are not permitted on the street.
Keep them onri your own property or trailer them somewhere legal and
safe to ride.

The quest for the putting stroke To read more news, visitwww.newszap. com


By Daniel Shube

It has been well documented
that my putting stroke leaves
something to be desired. I've tried
almost everything to cure the
dreaded yips. I've gone left-hand-
low, belly putter, had a litany of
lessons and have experienced just
a little improvement. The overrid-
ing factor that has diminished the
odds of success is the lack of prac-
tice.
I work long hours and have a
mega commute. After a very long
day there usually is no daylight to
get to the practice green. And I
have plenty to do at home. On the
weekend, if I do have some time, I
prefer to play 18, which is fun, but
not the place to be practicing.
I had a dream of installing a
synthetic putting green in my
backyard. The installation is a bit
more than I wanted to do myself
and the cost of professional instal-
lation was prohibitive. So I just
keep yipping along. However, I
have new hope.
At this year's PGA Merchan-


dise Show I discovered a compa-
ny called Tour Links. They offer a
variety of putting greens with a
difference... they snap together
like a puzzle. A full size backyard
green may take an hour or so to
install. A nine-foot teaching aid
model took me 15-minutes
before I was ready to work on my
game.
Had my stroke been in better
condition, a typical backyard
green would have been a fun
option. My putting stroke requires
some work so the Nine-Foot
Training Aid was a better fit for
me. It includes a string that goes
from the hole to where you place
your ball. All I do is line up the
markings on my putter-face and
practice taking it straight to the
hole. You can also make the hole
smaller, although I'm not quite
ready for that option. When I can
hit the smaller hole, getting the
ball in the center of the cup on the
course will seem easy. When you
are ready, inserts are provided to
work on breaking putts.
The model I'm working with


retails for only $349. much less
than investing thousands in my
backyard. For convenience, I set-
up the unit on my balcony, so all I
have to do is step out my bed-
room door and get some quality
practice time in.
The Training Aid model is also
available in seven and thirteen
foot lengths. The Dogbone shape
has a hole on either end. Standard
backyard versions begin with a 4
x 10 and go to 14 x 20. However,
any layout you desire can be
achieved.
So, nowyou'll find me outside,
with my dog Corona, working on

Burns aid


wildlife


habitat
Courtesy of the National Wild
Turkey Federation
During the past few weeks,
US Forest Service employees,
state wildlife agency workers
rand private landowners have lit
their oil-filled drip torches and
commenced prescribed burning
practices in the forests and fields
of the Southeast.
Prescribed burning is most
effective during late March and
early April when shrubs and
saplings start to bloom. These
months are also' prime for
spring turkey hunting and
when turkeys are starting to
nest.
A common fear among
turkey hunters is that prescribed
burns are detrimental to wild
turkey populations because
they destroy many wild turkey
nests.
However, wildlife biologists
know that the improved nesting
and brood habitat provided by
prescribed burning is far more
important than the loss of a few
nests. Research in northcentral
Louisiana shows that most
hens nest somewhere less
brushy than areas selected for
burning
Since 2002, state and local
National Wild Turkey Federation
chapters have spent more than
$228,000 in 23 states to help
fund prescribed fire projects.
Through NWTF's Hunting Her-
itage Super Fund, volunteers
donate money to further the
work that government agencies
do on the ground.
For more information about
prescribed burning, contact
Dennis Daniel, USFS/NWTF liai-
son at (800) THE-NWTF.

Tampa TribuneT Lee C6unty is
considering an iguana.removal
tax, allowing conltol efforts to
begin as early as this summer, the
Tribune said.


SBill to.


help curb


invasions
ALTAMONTE SPRINGS A
proposed bill to regulate reptiles is
a giant step toward protecting
Florida's citizens and natural land-
scapes from the dangers of inva-
sive, non-native animals.
Rep. Ralph Poppell (R-Vero
Beach) proposes to expand a cur-
rent law regulating poisonous
snakes to regulating other poten-
tially invasive reptiles. The change
will help Florida battle the invasion
of species, such as pythons, moni-
tor lizards and iguanas, that is over-
taking many neighborhoods and
natural areas as a result of acciden-
tal and intentional releases.
Rep. Poppell's bill would allow
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
e servation Commission to establish
a list of reptiles that would require
a permit before they could be
bought,, displayed, housed or
transported, including in the pet
Pete Gawda trade.
"We are supportive of this
effort," said Doria Gordon, The
gratulated Nature Conservancy's associate
ght, Ricky director of conservation science.
grader at "The Conservancy is concerned
bee High about the impacts these. non-
native species are having on Flori-
da's plants, animals and habitats.
We support approaches that pre-
Svent non-native, invasive animals
B from being released into the wild,
thus avoiding unwanted impacts.
and costly and cumbersome con-
trol programs.".
Gordon said the regulations
should also help land managers
meet their conservation goals and
S" save taxpayers money. "This is a
great step in the larger challenge of
providing agencies with improved
invasive species management
tools. I:hope future legislation
addresses similar issues we have
with other non-native, invasive
species," she said.
-. When released, non-native
species often take over a habitat.
From a few released pets in Boca
Grande in the 1970s, Mexican
ers" spin-lail iguanas have increased
I V in the last hix\ e years from 2,000 to
10,000 on Gasparilla Island, more
hMan double the island's in-season
human population, according to

Many newspaper owners have a hidden "agenda" whether
it is political, economic or to promote the publisher's cronies.

Not us. We're owned by a unique non-profit journalistic trust.

Our ONLY mission is to provide the information and under-
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-
sion.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling
your editor.
