Waste

described Wakulla Springs as "a
unique jewel" in the state's park
system..
And the problems may be
coming from the city of Tallahas-
see, which sprays up to 20 million
gallons a day of nutrient-laden
wastewater on a treatment field
about 10 miles north of the
springs.
Crist said Sunday he was con-
cerned with the pollution and
"diminishing value" of the spring,
and stressed its importance as a
natural resource and tourist

attraction.
"It's a state treasure," Crist said
by telephone, adding he'd sent a
letter to Tallahassee's mayor with
concerns about the city's water
treatment possibly fouling the
springs.
.Crist, who is also seeking the
Republican nomination for gover-
nor, said "avoiding litigation
would be great," but he would
keep that option open if a solution
isn't found.
City officials say they are work-
ing on improvements at the
wastewater plant that will reduce
the amount of nitrogen that may
be seeping into the groundwater
and, eventually, into the spring.
However, state lawmakers

have yet to take steps to protect
more than 700 springs across
Florida's landscape. Many suffer
from the same problems as
Wakulla.
Developers, farmers, business-
es and other interest groups who
fear stronger regulation of the
land around the. springs may
harm their interests, have
opposed such legislation.
This year, state Sen. Nancy
Argenziano, R-Dunnellon, and
state Rep. Dwight Stansel, D-Well-
born, have filed bills (HB 693 and
SB 2358) to create a task force to
raise the visibility of the issue
designed to win more protections
for the springs.
David Gluckman, a lobbyist for


the Florida Wildlife Federation,
said the state must get a handle
on development, septic tanks,
sewage treatment discharges and
stormwater runoff from urban
areas if it hopes to save the
springs across the state.
But Gluckman said stronger
state regulation of the activity
around the springs is unlikely to
happen in a Republican Legisla-
ture.
Argenziano is concerned the
bureaucracywill bog down.
"You know how government
is," she said. "We work in baby
steps. If we keep taking baby
steps, we may find that we don't
have those springs anymore."

Are you legally using pesticides?


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Spring begins this week, and
with it, comes warmer tempera-
tures, greener grass, beautiful flow-
ers, and... pests! And pests often
lead people to use pesticides.
These wonderful products some-
times require licenses, the subject
of this week's column.
And since I am preparing to
train some local folks this week in
the art and science of pesticide
application, it's a good time to see if
you are legally using and not abus-
ing these necessary products in and
around our Florida Yards. And if
training is needed, this week's
classes can help get you legal.
Pesticides are not the only tool
available to keep creeping, crawl-
ing, rotting, stinging and biting
plants and animals from causing
us harm. .Simple actions like not
over-fertilizing the lawn or choos-
ing the right plant for the right place
are also good ways to' reduce the
need for pesticides in Florida Yards.
Using a variety of correct practices
is the key to Integrated Pest Man-
agement-IPM!
A recent report from the
CropLife Foundation indicates that
the total amount of fungicides and
herbicides pesticides used on US
croplands over the past five years
has decreased.; However, the infor-
mation on the amount of pesticide
products used in landscapes is not
as clearly known.
. IPM does not mean don't use
any pesticides. Instead, it means
use them correctly and only when
necessary. And it also means use
them according to the label
because that's the law. Besides
federal la6\, we also have state laws
that guide us on the proper use of
these necessary tools.
Florida has three laws that gov-
ern pesticide applicators. At best
they are confusing, and at worst,
they can get those that use pesticides
improperly in trouble %\ith the lavv.
For most Florida homeowners,
if you can buy it at the garden cen-
ter, and use these products accord-
ing to the label, you are following
the law. But for those in the busi-
ness, for agricultural producers, or
for those employees that need to


*. UNIVERSITY OF
.FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
use pesticides as part of their job, a
pesticide license is usually needed.
And if you hire someone to help
you keep pests away, please be
sure that the person has the right
license to do the job legally. -
One kind of pesticide license is
actually a business license. Known
with a Pest Control Operator's
(PCO) .license, the operator-in-
charge trains and supervises his or
her employees. Their technicians
have an identification card and will
go from place to place, and use
many different tools to reduce
pests. Their license can be specific
for landscapes, buildings, termite
management and/or fumigation.
Generally the business owner has
to have a college degree or have
worked with another PCO, and
they have to renew their license
eachyear.
Commercial Landscapers have
a very specific kind of certification
that allows them to use a limited
number of pesticide products and
equipment, but only in residential
landscapes.. This is called limited
because they are not allowed to
use power equipment, they may
not use anything that has a signal
word of WARNING or DANGER,
and they may not make any appli-
cation to lawn grass areas. So if
your landscaper is putting a weed
and feed product on your lawn this
week, they better have a license or
they are breaking the law.
A third kind of license is known
as the Limited Lawn and Orna-
mental Certificate. For those that
work in the landscape for a govern-
mental organization, such as for
the county, the city or the school
district, this is the right stuff. It also
applies to persons that wish to
apply pesticides to their own busi-
ness property, and can also be used
by an employee that works exclu-
sively for the property owner. Each
applicator must have a license and
renew it every four years.
A similar kind of Limited Certifi-


cate also applies to public and pri-
vate employees that need to apply
pesticide products inside buildings.
The Limited Structural Certificate is
also a four year license, and does
not allow for any supervision of
other applicators.
Agricultural producers have
another whole law that deals with
the application of pesticide in Flori-
da's croplands and natural areas.
Those with these Restricted-use
Pesticide licenses are not permitted
to use these products in Florida
Yards or around buildings. Contact
me if you need help getting one of
these kinds of licenses.
For those that need a public/pri-
vate limited certificate, call our
Extension office immediately. I will
be holding a training class for those
wishing to take the exam for the
Limited Lawn & Ornamental
license this Tuesday morning,
March 21, here at, the Extension
office. These needing the Limited
Structural certificate may want to
attend a similar training on
Wednesday morning. Seating is,
well, limited, so call.
If you need a pesticide license in
another category, our office can set
up training classes for other kinds
of applicators if there is enough
interest. The University of Florida is
also the official Florida source for
most applicator training manuals,
and we are responsible for giving
most of the tests to applicators.
:Are you confused yet' For most
folks that wish to manage their
own pests, remember the most
important rule of pesticide use:
THE LABEL IS THE LAW. For all
other questions bout pest manage
ment, feel free to contact our office
for more information.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu If
you need additional information
on Pest management or licensing,
please email us at
okeechobee@ifag.ufl.edu or call
us at 863-763-6469. Local residents
can stop by our office at 458 Hwy
98 North in Okeechobee, and %isit

Tuesday afternoons. Happy Ag
Awareness Week!

Developer to build waterfront resort


Successful businessman and
developer Timothy James of Bre-
vard County has cleared the hur-
dles in Glades County to build an
all inclusive sportsman's water-
front resort known as Adventure
Lodge Lakeport with direct access
to Lake Okeechobee.
With the unanimous approval
by the county commission on
Tuesday, March 14, for the rezon-
ing of two prime waterfront acres
in Lakeport, from mixed residential
to commercial, James plans to
bring to this remote area of the
state an initial $3 million invest-
ment to establish an exclusive eco-
tourism operation the likes of
which are almost unknown in rural
South Florida.
"In a region where RV parks
and fish camps are the norm, the
Lodge concept differs dramatical-
ly," said Manager df Operations,
Don Coughlin. "Guests can be
flown in from Europe or Asia with-
out .their fishing poles and be
whisked off to the Florida wilder-
ness. All theyvill need is their cam-
eras and a sense ofadventure."


While pampered guests, mostly
tenderfoots, will enjoy upscale
lodging, quality cuisine, wildlife
seminars and unique entertain-
ment, the main draw will be their
guided wilderness experiences
such as thrilling gator hunts, wild
turkey and wild boar hunting, bass
and crappie fishing, kayaking, air
boating and bird watching in the
Everglades.
Float planes and tour boats will
transport the international guests
to see the most fascinating flora
and fauna around the lake and
throughout SouthfFlorida.
"It will be an eco tourist's
dream vacation. An unforgettable
odyssey," said Coughlin.
The Lakeport location is one of
four planned Adventure Lodges
which will house Adventure Tours
of South Florida. The tours will fea-
ture three, 10-day travel packages
full of daily outdoor adventures you
can only experience in the Florida
wilderness.
James plans to build 10 to 12
one-bedroom upscale cabins and
a rustic recreation pavilion with an


outdoor cooking facility at his
beautifully landscaped Lakeport
facility. Similar Adventure Lodges
are planned for his properties on
the Kissimmee River, Cedar Key
and Everglades City.
James, an avid sportsman who
has traveled the globe, wants to
share his love for the Florida out-
doors with tourists from all over the
world, said Coughlin.
Getting into the tourism busi-
ness is the latest of James' many
other highly successful enterprises.
He is the owner of Landscape
Depot, one of the largest landscape
supply companies in Brevard
County, grossing over $2,000,000 a
year. He is a developer who buys,
sells, leases and develops prime
commercial real estate, and
owner/investor in an exclusive dis-,
tribhutorship for an Italian Light
Sport Aircraft called Jetflox.
For more information about
Adventure Lodges and Adventure
Tours of South Florida call Opera-
tions Manager Don Coughlin at 1-
