Basin boat ramp
may damage boat
Boaters are being urged to
avoid using the boat ramp
located in the back basin at
the Okee-Tantie Marina and
Campground.
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) said
due to low lake levels, use of
the back ramp could damage
a boat. Also, it's doubtful that
the lake level is high enough
to allow a boat to leave the
basin and enter the lake.
The sheriff's office did say,
however, that airboaters can
still safely use the ramp.
Boaters are urged to either
use the main ramps at Okee-
Tantie, or the ramps at Scott
Driver Memorial Park.

Battlefield site to
be commemorated
A special event to com-
memorate the state's pur-
chase of the Okeechobee Bat-
tlefield will be held Thursday,
May 25, at the Okeechobee
Battlefield site at 3501 S.E.
38th Ave.
Also on hand will be offi-
cials from both the city and
county of Okeechobee, State
Representative Richard
Machek (D-78), dignitaries
from the Seminole Tribe and
officials from the Department
of Environmental Protection.
Representatives from the
Seminole Tribe will also pres-
ent a historical document that
was written by Colonel
Zachary Taylor and described
the battle.

Sweet industry: Sugar has long history in Fla.
F'


Special to INI/Florida Archives
Osceola Sugar Mill in Pahokee, 1986. Cuban immigrants Pepe and Alfy Fanjul moved
their sugar manufacturing operation to Florida in the 1960s, and bought 4,000 acre
:Qscaola Farms.. By4-e mid-1980s, it was earning 240 million a year with tens'of thi,
sands of acres. By the 1990s, the company became Florida Crystals, and was the
state's largest sugar company, one of the companies often nicknamed as Big Sugar. .

Sugar farming part of Fla. history


By MaiyAnn Morris
Sugarcane is a tropical grass
native to Asia where it has been
grown for over 4,000 years.
Methods for manufacturing
sugar from sugarcane were
developed in India about 400 BC.
Christopher Columbus brought
the plant to the West Indies, and
today sugarcane is cultivated in
tropical and sub-tropical regions
throughout the world. Over 75
percent of the world's sugar
comes from sugarcane.
Florida's sugar cane farms are
just one of the agriculture indus-
tries in the Everglades Agricultur-
al Area.
Sugar part of
Florida history
Long ago, sugar was grown
in many areas of Florida. It was
first commercially manufactured
in Florida near New Smyrna
from 1767 until 1776. Near the
Homosassa River, is a state park
to mark the site of the old Yulee
Sugar Mill. David Levy Yulee was

City planners



to overhaul



their agendas


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
The City of Okeechobee's
planning boards will consider
overhauling their agendas at
their meeting Tuesday, May 23,
starting at 6:30 p.m. at city hall.
Now, city planners meet in
three separate meetings on one
night: Board of Adjustment and
Appeals, which considers vari-
ances to the land use codes;
Land Planning Agency, which
considers comprehensive plan
amendments; and Planning
Board, which considers rezoW-
ing requests.
Lane Gamiotea, city clerk, is
recommending the planning
boards consolidate the Land


Planning Agency and Planning
Board agendas, since both field
land development regulation
(LDR) amendments, land use
changes, comprehensive plan
amendments, and rezoning
requests. She also recommends
consolidating the Planning
Board and Board of Adjustment
and Appeals agendas.
Under the new agenda, plan-
ners will meet under one agen-
da: "Planning Board/Board of
Adjustment and Appeals."
The purpose for the recom-
mended changes, according to
Mrs: Gamiotea, is to streamline
the process and make it more
"user-friendly."

Spanish occupation. The mill pro-
duced sugar, syrup and molasses.
(Molasses was used to make rum.)
The supplied of sugar products for
southern troops during the Civil
War, but was abandoned. Later, in
the late 1800s, Hamilton Disston,
who master-minded the drainage
of the Everglades also had a sugar
plantation in St. Cloud, but it fell to
bad management.

Modern
sugar farms
Although sugarcane can be
grown anywhere in Florida, the
commercial sugarcane industry is
in south Florida around the south-
ern tip of Lake Okeechobee. This
area is so compact most Florida
visitors never see a sugarcane field.
Palm Beach County accounts for
about 70 percent of the commer-
cial sugarcane acreage. The
remainder is grown in the adjacent
counties: Martin, Glades, and
Hendry.
The fertile organic soil and the
warming influence of Lake Okee-
chobee bring the sugar industry is
here. Killing cold temperatures
don't often happen near the lake.
There is generally adequate water
and lots of sunshine.

400,000 acres
in crops
Recently, there has been a slight
decline in commercial sugarcane,
production in Florida. Sugarcane
acreage has decreased from a high
of 454,400 acres in the 2000-01
crop to about 400,000 acres in the
2004-05 crop.
The 2000-2001 crop yielded
2.02 million tons of raw sugar. The
2004-05 crop yielded 1.56 million
tons of raw sugar. In 2004-05, Flori-
da contributed an estimated 51.3
percent of the cane sugar and 21.4
percent of the total sugar produced
in the United States, including beet
sugar.
Putting Florida's cane crop into
perspective, prior to the Cuban
embargo in 1961, Florida had only
50,000 acres of sugarcane as com-
pared to 400,000 acres in 2004-05.
In 2004, Florida's raw sugar crop
was valued at roughly $550 million,
according to the United States
Department of Agriculture.
Sugarcane is Florida's most
valuable field crop, worth more
than the combined value of the
Florida-grown corn, soybean,
tobacco, and peanut crops. Sugar-
cane ranks third in Florida's agri-
cultural economy, behind the
greenhouse/nursery and citrus
industries.

Environmental
concerns
Not only does sugar support
Florida's economy, but also, most
of the fibrous portion of the cane
stalks, called "bagasse" is burned
as fuel for the mills. This saves an
estimated 113 million gallons of:
fuel oil or 2.1 billion kilowatt hours
of electricity each year. Since sugar-
cane is over half water to start with,
enough water is recovered during
processing so that sugar mills actu-
ally produce water rather than con-
sume it. Most of the "smoke" com-
ing from sugar mills is actually
steam coming from the mill boil-
ers.

Research
under way
At Canal Point, the USDA-ARS
Sugarcane Field Station works to
produce improved varieties adapt-
ed to Florida conditions. High
sugar yields, disease resistance,
rapid growth, and tolerance to high
water tables are among the traits
sought in new sugarcane varieties.
At Belle Glade, the University of
Florida Everglades Research and
Education Center cooperates in the
variety development program and
conducts research on sugarcane

ducers on the mineral soils of

sponsored by the University of
Florida Cooperative Extension Ser-
vice.
United States Sugar Corpora-
tion, Florida Crystals Corporation,
and the Sugar Cane Growers Coop-
erative of Florida, do their own
research and also support research
programs at University of Florida
and USDA facilities.

How is
cane grown?
Sugarcane is planted from late
August through January. A favor-
able sugarcane variety of sugar-
cane is planted by using parts of
the mother plant, which produces
new plants. As of 2005, hand plant-
ing is still a common practice for
planting sugarcane. Portions of
mature sugarcane fields are saved
for "seed cane" (the cane used for
the next planted crop). Instead of
being mechanically harvested,
these stalks of seed cane are hand-
cut with machetes, loaded onto
wagons, transported to the new
field, and dropped horizontally into
shallow furrows. Cane stalks have
buds ("eyes") every 2 to 6 inches
and each bud can sprout rapidly
when buried in moist soil
(http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/SC034).
Within 2 to 3 weeks shoots emerge
and, under favorable conditions,
produce secondary shoots to give a
dense stand of cane.
Sugarcane is harvested from
late-October through mid-April. If
there are no freezes, sugar yields
are typically highest after Decem-
ber.
Years ago, sugarcane was hand-
harvested using cane knives.
Improvements in mechanical har-
vesters have resulted in a total
movement away from hand har-
vesting. Machine-harvested
acreage increased from 30 percent
in 1987 to 100 percent in 1993.
Ripe cane is burned to get rid of
dead leaves and other trash that
would otherwise interfere with the
harvest, increase transportation
costs to the mill, clog milling
machinery, and absorb sugar dur-
ing the extraction process. Fields
are burned just before harvest. The
fires are rather spectacular but of
short duration (a 40-acre field
burns in 15-20 minutes). Burning is
done only in-the daytime (under a
permit from the Department of
Forestry) when dispersal of the
smoke by air currents causes mini-
mum nuisance.
After burning, mechanical har-
vesters cut and deposit the cut cane
directly into field wagons. 'Tractors
haul 16 tons of cane out of the field
with each 4-wagon load. At special
ramps near the field, the cane is
dumped from the wagon into high-
way trailers or rail cars to be taken
to the mills. Rail cars carry 25 to 30
tons each and highway trailers
carry 20 tons per load.

Refining the sugar
At the mill, the cane is crushed
between heavy rollers to squeeze
out the juice. Small amounts of hot
water are then added and the fiber
is :squeezed four more times to
remove as much juice as possible.
Then lime is then added to the
juice to help filter out cane fibers
and soil, and keep the desirable
sugar (sucrose) from going into
other sugar forms that won't crys-
tallize. The sucrose solution is con-
centrated by evaporating off the
water (which is recovered and
reused by the mill) until raw sugar
crystals form. For each pound of
sugar produced, 6.5 pounds or 3
quarts of water must be boiled off.
Raw sugar is stored in high piles
in large warehouses until it is
shipped to a refinery. Looking like
very coarse sand, it is moved by


Florida's coastal communities
have for years been too crowded
to try to get everyone out of
harm's way before a storm. That
was underscored in 1999 when
1.3 million people were told to
evacuate the state's Atlantic coast
before Hurricane Floyd and traffic
backed up 30 miles or more.
And many people who fled the
state's west coast before Hurri-
cane Charley in 2004 ended up
right in the storm's path as it tore
through Orlando.
The universal message now is
evacuate near instead of far. Resi-
dents in storm-surge evacuation
areas are advised to go to higher
ground within their counties, to a
friend or relative's home or, as a
last resort, to a shelter. Those who
aren't in storm surge zones or
mobile homes should just hunker
down, as most newer homes can
withstand hurricane-force winds.

goods.

America's
sweet tooth
On average, each person in the
United States consumes about 61.5
pounds of refined sugar per person
per year (2004); roughly 205 stalks
of sugarcane. At 30,000 stalks per
acre, one acre grows roughly
enough for 146 Americans year
If that sounds like a lot of sugar,
realize: sugar is consumed as fol-
lows: 32 percent is as packaged
sugar, 20 percent in bakery and
cereal products, 15 percent in con-
fectionery products, 6 percent in
dairy products, 5 percent in
processed foods, and 4 percent in
beverages.

Who grows the
sugar cane?
Over 70,000 acres of sugarcane
are farmed by the member-grow-
ers of Sugar Cane Growers Cooper-
ative of Florida. From this acreage,
on an annual basis, over 350,000
tons of raw sugar is produced.
Once refined, this is enough to
serve the average annual demand
of more than 9 million Americans.
The cooperative engages in the
activities necessary to be success-
ful in the complex, science-inten-
sive arena that is sugar farming. It
provides the services of harvesting,
transporting and milling of sugar-
cane and the marketing of raw
sugar and blackstrap molasses.
Today, 54 grower-members
make up the Cooperative. Always,
each member, no matter how
large or small his farm, is treated
equally with each member having
one vote. A Board of Directors
determines policy and provides
direction for the management
team. Day-to-day business opera-
tions are handled by the profes-
sionals who make up the staff.

U.S. Sugar
In 1921, the Pennsuco Sugar
Company, which owned several
hundred thousand acres of land
from Miami to Lake Okeechobee,
sent Ernest Graham to Florida to
drain the swamps and plant sugar-
cane to supply its Philadelphia
refinery. Pennsuco built a mill near
what is now Hialeah in 1921. In
1926, a hurricane struck and flood-
ed the area. Pennsuco gave up
sugar farming and eventually
retreated completely. The Pennsu-
co mill became part of the South-
ern Sugar Company in 1925.
The Clewiston Sugar Mill was
opened by Southern Sugar in 1929.
It could process 1,500 tons of cane
per day. This attempt also failed.
Then in April, 1931, automotive
pioneer, industrialist and philan-
thropist Charles Stewart Mott trans-
formed the bankrupt Southern
Sugar Company into United States
Sugar Corporation. Mott revived
the company and convinced other
investors and creditors that the
dream of growing sugar in the rich
muck soils around Lake Okee-
chobee was not only possible, but
profitable. Mott eventually led U.S.
Sugar to its position as one of the
country's most successful agricul-
tural operations.
Through the 1930s, American
producers were limited by U.S. pol-
icy to supplying no more than 30
percent of the U.S. market, which
hindered the growth of the Florida
industry. Despite heavy lobbying
by domestic sugar producers, the
government quotas were not lifted
until World War II, when sugar was
needed to feed the military, and
German U-boats lurked in the
waters off the coast of Florida.
In 1959, U.S. Sugar increased its


"We have for the longest time
encouraged people not to go any

gency Management Director Gary
Vickers. "It's not the govern-
ment's responsibility to ensure
that you can drive from Pinellas
County to Orlando under a hurri-
cane warning in 2 1/2 hours or
less."
After Floyd, the state devel-
oped "contra-flow" plans for six
major state highways, which
would reverse lanes in one direc-
tion to accommodate a mass
evacuation if absolutely neces-
sary.
Emergency managers stress
planning over all else, especially
because most coastal counties
still don't have enough shelter
beds to accommodate everyone
who would need space if a major
hurricane hit. Gispert marveled

The proposed landscape ordi-
nance would state specific land-


milling operation with the con-
struction of an additional facility on
the southeastern rim of Lake Okee-
chobee. The Bryant Sugar Mill
would be the world's most mod-
ern.

Some history
Despite favorable growing con-
ditions, sugar production in Florida
struggled for many years. In the
1930s, a mill was built in Fellsmere,
near Vero Beach. It operated until
1965. During World War II another
mill was moved from Puerto Rico
to Okeelanta, near South Bay.
As others recognized the poten-
tial of the lake area, new sugar
cane operations began to arrive
with the U.S embargo of Cuba in
the 1960s. The industry began a
period of dramatic growth. Flori-
da's sugar industry expanded in
order to replace sugar once import-
ed from Cuba.
After the Cuban revolution, the
Florida sugar industry grew rapidly.

Florida Crystals
After Castro took over Cuba and
seized their property, the Fanjul
family fled to America, bringing
their generations of sugar making
expertise with them. Presently, the
four Fanjul brothers, Alfonso, Jose,
Andres and Alexander own and
manage their privately held Flo-
Sun Corporation. Flo-Sun Corpora-
tion is an umbrella for a number of
diverse businesses, including Flori-
da Crystals. The company owns
and farms 180,000 acres of sugar
fields in South Florida and owns
and operates the Okeelanta Sugar
Mill near South Bay.

Water management
Sugar farms require water to
grow sugarcane. A relatively high
water table (deeper than 24 inches
below ground) is desirable, so
when heavy rains come during the
growing season, water must be
pumped off the fields to avoid
damaging the crop. When there is
no rain, water must be pumped
back in to keep the cane growing.
In the off season, fields are
sometimes deliberately flooded for
weeks at a time. This helps control
weeds, disease and insects and
slows subsidence of the peat soil.
Some farmers grow rice in the
fields during the otherwise fallow
time.
After being used as a cover crop
for many years, rice was first har-
vested as a grain in 1977. Experi-
ments have show that planting rice
means increased sugar the next
year. Growing rice in rotation with
sugarcane is a "best management
practice"(BMP).
Researchers at University of
Florida developed the standards for
the BMPs for South Florida Water
Management District and the Flori-
da Department of Environmental
Regulation monitors pesticide
residue in runoff from the farms.
BMPs became mandatory in Janu-
ary, 1995 with the main objective to
reduce phosphorous from fertilizer
in the runoff from the farms. As of
2004, phosphorous has been
reduced 44 percent overall for the
Everglades Agricultural Area, much
more that was anticipated.

Planners

Continued From Page 1
Planners will consider another
change in their process: they may
vote to move their meeting day
from the fourth Tuesday of the
month to the third Thursday of the
month. This is to accommodate
requests from several citizens who
need to attend both the city's plan-
ning meetings and the county's,
which also meets on Tuesday
nights.
The first item of business for
both the Board of Adjustment and
the Planning Board Tuesday will be
the election of a chairperson and
vice-chairperson for a two-year
term.
The Board of Adjustment will
consider a variance request from
Janet and Rohit Dave for property
at 1020 N.W. Park St. They wish to
erect an off-premise sign within
300 feet from a residential district to
exceed the maximum 442.5 square
feet of signage and to allow a sec-
ond ground sign to be permitted in
the front yard with the height
exceeding the 30 foot maximum
height requirement.
The Land Planning Agency will
consider amending Section 90,
Division 6, Commercial Profession-
al and Office (CPO) district regard-
ing Section 90-222 on permitted
uses to broaden the truck weight
limitation. The agency will also
consider any amendments to the
city's LDRs.
The agency will hold a public
hearing to consider recommend-
ing two small scale future land use
map amendments to the city coun-
cil.
Jeff Sumner and Ken Treadwell
are requesting an amendment on
behalf of property owner Frank
Altobello for property located
between Southwest Second and
Sixth Streets. They want to change
the land use designation for an
unplatted parcel of land shown as
the Railroad Grounds from single
family (SF) to multifamily (MF).


Steve Dobbs submitted an
application on behalf of property
owner InSite Development Group

Letter to the Editor


Immigration rally
What teed me off most was
that our county officials allowed
the illegal immigrants to have a
rally in Veteran's Park a memo-
rial that was set up to honor our
brave country, and the men and
women from Okeechobee who
had the honor and courage to
fight and defend this country and
the freedom that all Americans
enjoy.
They were sitting on the
memorials of these brave Ameri-
cans, spitting on the ground and
waving flags that resemble the
Iraq flag although, it was a flag


from a country that wouldn't sup-
port the U.S.A in war. That was
very disrespectful. There should
be only one flag flown in the
U.S.A., and that is Old Glory.
These illegals should never be
allowed to walk in any veteran's
park. I have never heard of one
Mexican national ever losing his
life defending this country. Don't
get me wrong, I have served with
some brave Mexican-Americans
that defended this country. But if
you want to wave other flags, and
think the country they represent
are so great, then go there, live
there and work there.
When you enter our country

illegally, or any country illegally, it
is a criminal act. And, any
employer that hires you and
knows you are an illegal is com-
mitting a criminal act.
If you, as an employer, like ille-
gal immigrants so much why you
don't exercise your American
right to freedom of travel and go
to their country and see just how
welcome you are. Only the rich
and greedy want illegals here so
they can get richer at your
expense.
True red-blooded Americans
don't want you. They need to
bring our people (Americans)
home from Iraq and Afghanistan


and give them a job with border
patrol, homeland security and
immigration.
The only right any illegal has,
or should have, is to go back
where they came from or prison.
As for as the walkout, there are
plenty of legal immigrants to fill
the jobs you are on. There always
was plenty of work for Americans
- black, white, Mexican-Ameri-
cans and everyone before the
invasion of illegal immigrants
started about 20 years ago.
There is no job Americans will
not do, or are capable of doing.
