FWC hunts offer
quality experiences
If you're looking for a quality
hunting experience, look no
further. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) is offering
hunters unique fall season
hunts for deer, wild hogs and
,released quail on the state's
best public hunting lands.
These special-opportunity
hunts offer hunters vast areas,
abundant game, low hunting
pressure and excellent chances
to bag quality game on select
wildlife management areas
(WMAs) throughout Florida.
The special-opportunity
deer and wild hog hunts take
place on Fort Drum (Indian
River County), Lake Panasoff-
kee (Sumter County), Triple N
Ranch (Osceola County) and
Green Swamp West Unit
(Pasco County) WMAs. The
released-quail hunts take place
on Blackwater WMA Carr Unit
-A in Santa Rosa County.

Company dropping
( damaged homes
TAMPA (AP) State insur-
ance officials confirmed that
complaints filed recently
against troubled Poe Financial
Group came from people who
said their policies were
dropped before their homes
were repaired.
A condominium associa-
tion in Boca Raton received a
letter from Poe's Southern Fam-
ily Insurance Co. saying its poli-
cy would be dropped on June
1, even though it still has at least
six months' worth of hurricane
repairs to make, said Bob
Rollins, president of The Bea-
con Group Inc., an insurance
agency in Boca Raton.
State law requires insurers to
wait 90 days after a home is
Repaired before dropping policy.

The Kissimmee River Watershed reaches from north of East Lake Tohopekaliga to Lake
Okeechobee. It is divided into the upper and lower basins and further into four Pools A
through D.

Projects restore part of river


By MaryAnn Morris
By the 1940s, Central Florida
was well-populated. The pri-
mary industry was cattle. In
1946 and 1947, hurricanes
dumped record rainfall on
South Florida. The Kissimmee
River swelled out over its flood-
plain and thousands of cattle
were drowned. South of Orlan-
do, most of the state was under-
water with flooding responsible
for extensive property damage
throughout South Florida.
A group of concerned citi-
zens met in Okeechobee,
formed the Central and South-
ern Flood Control District
(which later became South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict) and ultimately petitioned
the government to help control
the flooding.
To protect developing areas


around Kissimmee and control
flooding in the Kissimmee River
Valley, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers straightened 103
miles of the meandering
Kissimmee River and its 35,000
acre floodplain into a 56-mile-
long, 30 foot deep, 300 foot
wide channel, draining 21,000
acres of floodplain in the
process. This is the C-38 Canal.
The wading birds left. The
sandy river bottom where fish


spawned became covered with
silt brought down by rushing
water from the northern reach-
es of the watershed and the fish
left. The marshes dried up and
ducks no longer made their
nests along the Kissimmee.
The region that drains into
lakes or rivers is called a water-
shed. The Kissimmee River
watershed forms the headwa-
ters of the Kissimmee-Okee-
chobee-Everglades System. It is
all inter-related. It feeds Lake
Okeechobee and the Ever-
glades. Water matters in this
region are handled by the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD), one of a num-
ber of such state agencies- in
Florida. Flood control, water

Raulerson tells about outlaws


By Twila Valentine, edited
by MaryAnn Morris
EDITOR'S NOTE: From
1977 until her death in 2003,
Independent Newspapers of
Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and
historian, Twila Valentine.
Mrs. Valentine wrote much
about the history of the people
and places around Lake Okee-
chobee and about the lake
itself. Together with Okee-
chobee's Betty Williamson,,
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


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





comes from an interview Mrs.
Valentine conducted with
Ossie Raulerson.
Ossie Raulerson remem-
bered South Florida "outlaws":
"There was a man named
Mort Manning and he was the


first to live on that ridge section
of the lake. He always cussed a
lot. He had an old parrot and
he taught that old parrot to
cuss just like he did. It would
say, "By God, honey old fella,"
He was a tough old man. The
rumor was that he got into a
fight with a man, took a pocket
knife and cut him to death. The
man had a moustache and
when the wind blew his mous-
tache the old man thought he
was still alive, so he cut him
some more and that's why he
was down here. He was an
outlaw and all the outlaws
came in to the ridge of the lake

supply, water quality and mainte-
nance of the natural areas of the
watershed are all responsibilities
of SFWMD. This includes many
different wetland and aquatic
ecosystems, more than two
dozen lakes, their tributary
streams, and the Kissimmee
River.
SThe restoration of the Kissim-
mee River is not a single project.
The Kissimmee Basin Modeling
and Operations Study, Kissim-
mee River Restoration Project
(KRRP), Kissimmee River Head-
waters Revitalization Project
(KRHRP), and Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes, (KCOL) Long-Term
Management Plan (LTMP) are
major projects in the watershed.
These projects include ecosystem
restoration, evaluation of the
work, aquatic plant manage-
ment, land management, water
quality improvement, water sup-
ply planning and how better to
balance them all, while also con-
sidering the impacts across
ecosystems including Lake Okee-
chobee and the Caloosahatchee
and St. Lucie estuaries.
The Kissimmee River Restora-
tion and the Kissimmee River
Headwaters Revitalization proj-
ects were jointly authorized in the
1992 Water Resources Develop-
ment Act. The two projects have
an estimated, combined cost of
$578 million and will be complet-
ed in several phases, with the
final phase of construction sched-
uled for completion in 2012.
The primary goal of the
Kissimmee River Restoration Pro-
ject is to re-establish the river-
floodplain system. The project
will restore over 40 square miles
of river/floodplain ecosystem
including 43 miles of meandering
river channel and 27,000 acres of
wetlands. The restoration project
is a joint partnership with the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) and US Army
Corps of Engineers (USACE).
This requires reconstruction
of the river closer to its natural
form, i.e., backfilling canals and
ditches, removing water control

because no one could get to
them.
"The only way you could get
to the lake was by the Kissim-
mee River or Taylor's Creek or if
you wanted to go on the lake,
you could come in on the
Caloosahatchee River. 'All
around the lake where people
live now, they had old houses
made of tar paper with a little
lumber. Law enforcement men
would not go there and if they
got in there, they couldn't find
anybody. You didn't even have a
wagon road, just a little path
through the elderberries.

support two hotels then. I asked
a friend who lived there why in

structures, and eliminating added
levees and roads and reestablish-
ment of historic flows. Basically,
it means un-straightening the
river. A key element of the project
is the program for tracking eco-
logical responses to restoration:
to see what doesn't work, what
works and how well it works.
This will give environmental sci-
entists the ability to judge the suc-
cess of the restoration, and, in
addition will provide scientific
information for fine-tuning future
project phases. Everything was
documented before work was
started, so that scientists can
judge the changes that take
place.
Phase I of the KRRP was com-
pleted in February 2001. Phase I
filled approximately 7.5 miles of
the C-38 canal (the straightened
Kissimmee River), re-carved
approximately 1.25 miles of river
channel, and demolished the S-
65B structure to reconnect 15
miles of continuous river chan-
nel. The most recent surveys
showed that the water quality
was improved and that popula-
tions of wading birds and ducks
had increased along with signifi-
cantly more fisl.
Much of the' water flowing to
the KCOL and Kissimmee River
originates in four headwaters
basins north of the KCOL. This
area is one of the most rapidly
urbanizing areas in Florida. The
quality and quantity of water
flowing through these basins
influence the health of all down-
stream systems. The SFWMD
works with local governments
throughout the Upper Basin to
fund water resource projects to
improve water quality, water sup-
ply, natural resources, and flood
control levels of service.
The KICCO Wildlife Manage-
ment Area is an approximate
7,400-acre property in Polk Coun-
ty, managed by the District's Land
Stewardship Division and was
purchased under the Save Our
Rivers Program in 1985 as part of
the KRRP. The area is located on
the west side of the C-38 canal in
Pool A of the Kissimmee River.
The north border is State High-
way 60, and the south border lies
south of the S-65A water control
structure.


there. In the 1880s they would
come. My daddy told me there
was a feller named Hunter and
he bought all that old prairie
land north of Basinger. There
was miles and miles of it and he
built a little old house up there
and called it Hunter's Camp
about a mile north of Zetta Dur-
rance's north line up there. But
the people from up North have
always wanted a piece of land in
Florida. They'd come by steam-
boat down the Kissimmee to
Basinger. Hunter's people had a
horse and wagon and they'd
meet them at the landing and
bring them up to the hotels at
Basinger, about two or three
miles from the river. The people
would stay in the hotel until the
next day. Then they'd carry them
out to this camp, some three,
four, five miles up, I guess on the
old Peavine Trail.
"One day this feller, Hunter,


Since the C-38 canal will not
be backfilled north of S-65A, flow
will not be restored to the rem-
nant Kissimmee River in Pool A.
Although restoration of the river
will not take place in Pool A,
there are smaller projects within
the pool that will serve to
increase water storage, improve
water quality, mitigate flooding,
and restore the wetland commu-
nity in parts of the floodplain
associated with the river's tribu-
taries. This will restore historic
(pre-C&SF Project) floodplain to
Packingham and Buttermilk
sloughs.
Increased wetland habitat for
wildlife and creation of a "wet-
land corridor" between Lake
Kissimmee and the restored por-
tion of the Kissimmee River will
result. The main features of the
restoration plan are the creation
of two containment levees, back-
filling of drainage ditches,, and
installation of gated water control
structures that will manage water
levels to mimic the historic sur-
face water levels in the basin
according to a model developed
from historic data at nearby Fort
Kissimmee.
This modeling was completed
in March 2005. Detailed design is
under way and is scheduled for
completion this fiscal year.
Rolling Meadows Ranch lies
on the south shore of Lake
Hatchineha. The 2,260-acre prop-
erty was purchased by the
SFWMD and the FDEP as part of
the KRRP. Currently, this property
is leased back to the previous
owner and operated as a sod
farm.
The restoration plan shows
the construction of a 1,670-acre
impounded wetland, possibly fed
by water from Lake Hatchineha
and from Catfish Creek. The wet-
land will be managed to mimic
the natural lake and will provide
habitat for wildlife. The area out-
side the impounded wetland may
be incorporated into the Lake
Kissimmee State Park. To assess
how water will be delivered to
the impoundment, hydrologic
modeling of Catfish Creek was
completed in March 2004. The
report outlines three options for
providing water to the impound-
ment. A final decision has not


he knew when there was a
bunch coming down and he'd
go out there and dig up that old
prairie land and plow up a bed
and' he'd bury big potatoes
there. Then he'd go out there
with the potato rake and dig
them up and show the folks
what fine big potatoes the land
would grow out there. Those
people were so vulnerable; they
didn't know there was supposed
to be a stem or a vine or anything
to go with them. He'd just dig
this potato up. He got some fruit
trees and he'd put them in and
keep them alive long enough
while the people were here. He
sold acres and acres of that old
land out in there. You couldn't
grow anything on it, but there
was lots of people who bought
five, ten and twenty acre plots.

guson out there at Seven Mile

The primary purpose of the
Kissimmee River Headwaters
Revitalization Project is to pro-
vide the water storage and regula-
tion schedule modifications
needed to restore the historical
flow characteristics of the Kissim-
mee River system. The secondary
purpose is to increase the size
and quality of lake littoral zone
habitat in lakes Kissimmee,
Hatchineha, Tiger, and Cypress to
benefit fish and wildlife.
The Long-Term Management
Plan for the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes was begun by SFWMD in
April 2003. The project's purpose
is to improve and sustain the
ecosystem health of the KCOL
regulated lakes while minimizing
adverse impacts to downstream
ecosystems.
Over the last year, an annotat-
ed bibliography of KCOL litera-
ture has been assembled, (2) a
stakeholder value survey of users
of the KCOL was taken to see
what citizens feel is most impor-
tant and other scientific studies.
Surveys of people in the KCOL
area were collected. The respons-
es showed that people wanted
recreation such as fishing, swim-
ming and boating and quiet
places where they could enjoy
nature. Project goals will be
changed to reflect those prefer-
ences. A need for more informa-
tion was also shown and two
brochures will be brought out to
keep people updated on the
progress of projects, another will
be more general, outlining juris-
dictions and the agency responsi-
ble.

while. I never did see him, but
I've been up there quail hunting
many a time and we'd sleep on
the porch of that house when it
would be raining or something.
We didn't go inside the house for
fear it would fall down.

"Of all the land sold out there,
there was only two houses ever
built there. Those people would
pay the taxes on that land for
awhile, and then they would just
give it up. There was a lot of
hunters here at that time, and
they'd pay the taxes on it ten
acres here and ten acres there to
come to hunt. But there was a
woman named Bass who lived
in Avon Park who tried to keep
them from hunting in there, but I
used to hunt quail all over that
place out there on that prairie

experiences
If you're looking for a quality
hunting experience, look no fur-
ther. The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is offering hunters
unique fall season hunts for
deer, wild hogs and released
quail on the state's best public
hunting lands,
These special-opportunity
hunts offer hunters vast .areas,
abundant game, low hunting
pressure and excellent chances
to bag quality game on select
wildlife management areas
(WMAs) throughout Florida.
The special-opportunity deer
and wild hog hunts take place on
Fort Drum (Indian River County),
Lake Panasoffkee (Sumter Coun-
ty), Triple N Ranch (Osceola
County) and Green Swamp West
Unit (Pasco County) WMAs. The
released-quail hunts take place
on Blackwaler WMA Carr Unit
in Santa Rosa County.
All deer hunts allow you to
take only mature bucks with one
antler at least four points. Does

for and draw an antlerless deer
permit. During hog hunts, there
are no size or bag limits., For the
released-quail hunts, you must
bring and release your own pen-
raised quail.

opportunity hunts appealing,

of these fall hunts beginning May

cial-opportunity hunts through

able from any FWC regional

USDA extends deadline for program Livestock


Gainesville Agricultural pro-
ducers and landowners who
thought they might miss the dead-
line to enroll highly erodible and
other fragile cropland into the cur-
rent Conservation Reserve Program
(CRP) general sign-up have a little
more time to get their applications
in, according to Kevin Kelley, State
Executive Director of USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) for Florida.
The enrollment periods for the CRP
general sign-up and the special CRP
re-enrollment and extension sign-
up have been extended until April
28, 2006. Both were originally
scheduled to end on April 14.
"I encourage all eligible farmers
and ranchers to take advantage of
the enrollment options available
through Conservation Reserve Pro-
gram and the special CRP re-enroll-
ment and extension," said Kelley
"The extended deadline of April
28th will help those who may not
have yet had an opportunity to


enroll in this beneficial program
which helps improve soil, water,
air, and wildlife habitat resources."
Those who participate voluntar-
ily enroll highly erodible and other
fragile cropland in CRP through
long-term contracts of 10 to 15
years. Grasses, trees and other veg-
etation are planted on the enrolled
land. In exchange, participants
receive annual rental payments
and a payment of up to 50 percent
of the cost of establishing conser-
vation covers.
After the CRP general sign-up
ends on April 28, USDAs Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA) will evaluate
offers based on cost and the Envi-
ronmental Benefits Index (EBI) fac-
tors of wildlife, water, soil, air and
enduring benefits. Accepted offers
will become effective Oct. 1,2006.
In addition, subject to a compli-
ance review, CRP participants with
contracts expiring on Sept. 30,
2007, now have until April 28 to


apply for special re-enrollment or
extension opportunities offered by
FSA. Participants ranking in the
EBI's top one-fifth can re-enroll
their land in a new 10-year con-
tract. For lands with restored wet-
lands, FSA offered the opportunity
for a new 15-year contract. FSA
offered the second one-fifth group
the opportunity for a 5-year exten-
sion; the third one-fifth a 4-year
extension; the fourth one-fifth a 3-
year extension; and the remaining
participants a 2-year extension.

FSA county offices are now begin-
ning to notify CRP participants with
contracts expiring in 2008-2010 of their
re-erirollment and extension opportu-
nities. The deadline for participants to
respond is June 30, 2006. For more
information on CRP, contactyour local
FSA office or visit the FSA Web site at:

Citrus conference to begin June 7


LAKELAND Florida Citrus
Mutual is hosting the second Flori-
da Citrus Industry Annual Confer-
ence June 7-10, which will be held
at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point
Resort & Spa in Bonita Springs
(www.coconutpoint.hyatt.com).
Once again, this event will bring
the entire industry together to
address industry-wide concerns.
The conference, which is spear-
headed by Florida Citrus Mutual's
Allied Committee, begins on June
7 with the 2006 Florida Citrus
Mutual Annual Board of Directors
Business Meeting, Past Presidents
Reception and Legislative Forum.
On June 8, educational oppor-
tunities for growers regarding inva-


sive pests and diseases, insurance
and water issues will be held. That
evening, an Industry Banquet will
feature the industry's political
allies, a Silent and Live Auction and
recognition of active leaders in the
citrus community.
Fishing and golf tournaments
and a family Luau Dinner will con-
clude the conference on June 9.
Additional conference activities
include other citrus association
meetings, spouse and family activi-
ties and opportunities to interact
with fellow industry members and
elected officials.
"Last year's conference was a
huge success and we are already
looking forward to this industry-wide


event," said Jay Clark, Florida Citrus
Mutual's interim executive vice presi-
dent/CEO. "Space is limited, so we
encourage growers and industry rep-
resentatives to register soon."
For more information regarding
registration or sponsorship oppor-
tunities, please visit Mutual's web-
site at www.flcitrusmutual.com or
contact Heather Russo, Florida Cit-
rus Mutual's membership coordi-
nator, at (863) 682-1111 ext. 212 or
heatherr@flcitrusmutual.com.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948, is the state's largest citrus
grower's organization with
approximately 10,000 members.


Growers urge congressional action


LAKELAND Florida Citrus
growers today applauded the
efforts of U.S. Senator Mel Mar-
tinez (R-FL) in working to bring
about comprehensive immigra-
tion reform. Florida citrus grow-
ers are encouraging congression-
al leaders to take action on the
Hagel/Martinez bill when Con-
gress returns to Washington next
week.
"The Hagel/Martinez bill
shows a clear understanding of
the special needs of Florida's cit-
rus growers," said Florida Citrus
Mutual Interim Executive Vice
President/CEO Jay Clark. "We
applaud Senator Martinez for
ensuring that the bill recognizes
and meets the unique challenges
faced by citrus growers and other
labor intensive agriculture indus-
tries."


Ag labor has always been
viewed as a special case and the
Martinez/Hagel
Compromise continues to rec-
ognize the differences and chal-
lenges that labor-intensive agricul-
ture industries face. The
compromise includes the reforms
of the 50 year old H2-A agriculture
worker program to make it more
user friendly and affordable for all
growers.
The current H2-A program is
badly outdated and only encom-
passes about two to three per-
cent of the entire agriculture
labor force.
Further,,the Hagel/Martinez bill
includes a one-time opportunity
for trained and experienced agri-
culture workers who lack proper
immigration status to undergo a
background check, pay a substan-

tial fine, a required commitment
to stay in the agriculture work-
force for at least 3 years to eventu-
ally earn the right to apply for
legalized status. In addition, the
prevailing wage employers must
pay agriculture workers will be
frozen for the next three years to
allow employers to adjust to the
new program. These are all sub-
stantial improvements over the
current out-dated and badly bro-
ken agricultural worker program.
"Comprehensive immigration
reform is vital to Florida's citrus
industry. As a group, we are
proud that Senator Martinez has
taken the lead on this issue,"
Clark concluded. "

Looters seek treasure in prehistoric sites


By Kevin Lollar
The News-Press
PLACIDA (AP) Dust and
sweat flew amid the click and
chink of rakes, shovels and pick-
axes on shell as Florida park
rangers filled a hole south of
here.
Not just any hole, though:
This was an ugly gouge in an
Indian mound. The gouge had
been created more than 20 years
ago by looters looking for pirate
treasure.
Under the supervision of cul-
tural resource specialist Chuck
Blanchard, five rangers spent a
day restoring the mound, on
which natives lived from about
500 B.C. until contact with Euro-
peans in the early 16th century.
"Though I've been shouting
about it for years, the nature of
these sites as actual monuments
to our past is beginning to catch
on," Blanchard said. "If we treat
our national monuments like
national monuments, we're less
likely to get this type of vandal-
ism.
"There's some personal satis-
faction for me here: This is the
very, very first looter hole I saw
in Charlotte Harbor, in 1983."
People were drawn to this
site, officially designated CH-9
and once popularly called the
Hippie Commune Mound, by
stories of pirate Jose Gaspar, for
whom, supposedly, the island of
Gasparillawas named.
According to legend, Gaspar
buried much of his ill-gotten
gains in Indian mounds in Char-
lotte Harbor.
So, find an Indian mound,
and you might find gold dou-
bloons and pieces of eight.
Only one problem: Jose Gas-
par never existed.:
Unfortunately, some people
bc'!!eed the tales and sought
their fortune by ripping up many
of the area's cultural monu-
ments.
"It's amazing what the whis-
per of gold will do," Blanchard
said.
Looters have ravaged South-
west Florida's prehistoric sites
for other reasons, including
lightning whelks, which are sold
on the Asian market and turned
into devotional candles.
"There are so many holes in
the harbor," Blanchard said.
"There's not a site that's not


badly injured."
Restoration of CH-9 started in
April when Mary Glowacki and
Kevin Porter of the state's Public
Lands Archaeology Program vis-
ited the site.
"We're doing salvage archae-
ology,"' program supervisor
Glowacki said. "When the loot-
ers help out, we collect as much
information as we can. The site
had been dug into, and we want-
ed to get information from the
site without digging more."
Among other things, Glowac-
ki and Porter documented the
layers within the looter pit, shell
mounds were constructed in
individual building events over
hundreds of years, each event
marked by a visible layer of con-
struction.
They also collected artifacts,
and took samples for radio car-
bon dating.
Another important part of this
stage was collection of pottery:
Different kinds of pottery were
developed at different times over
the centuries.
If a lot of a particular kind of
pottery is found in a layer of a
mound, that mound probably
dates to the period when the
pottery was common.
Sand-tempered plain pottery,
for example, was the dominant
pottery form starting in about
500 B.C., and pottery at the bot-
tom of the looter pit was sand-
tempered plain, so the mound
might date back about 1,500
years.
Restoring a shell mound is
hard, hot work.
First, the bottom of the pit
was packed with two tons,of
sand, 80 50-pound sandbags that
the rangers tossed around like
volleyballs.
The sand was put in the pit
while still in plastic bags.
"When we restore a site, we
usually put something in the bot-
tom so, if there's a formal exca-
vation in the future, they'll know
where the looters stopped,"
Glowacki said. /
Then came the backbreaking
work of filling the rest of the loot-
er pit with shell.
While they were digging up
the mound, looters piled shell
around the pit; over the years,
the piles packed together and
became almost rock-hard.
"This is not the fun part,"
Blanrchaird said of breaking up

an effort to restore an indian mound that was looted.


the piles with pickaxes,and then
shoveling the shells into the pit.
Finally, the shell was in place,
and the mound looked almost
whole.
Watching the work, Florida
Park Service specialist Andy
Goodwyne shook his head at the
looters' destruction.
"It's- horrible that .people
think there's gold in these Indian
mounds," Goodwyne said.
"Digging these mounds is a
desecration, something you just
don't do. But people get gold
fever, some people will do any-
thingfor.a dollar." ..

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.


We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot and
a return of the values of the American Revolution.


How are we doing?


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