Harley Holmes lived in Fort Drum


By Twila Valentine
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspa-
pers 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."
We will be dipping back
into some of these stories from
time to time as we are now.

"Life in the home of Harley
Holmes of Ft. Drum was a mix-
ture of hard work shared by
many hands and participation
in a large extended family.
"Mr. Holmes was a member
of one of the pioneer families
of Ft. Drum and he operated a
general merchandise store in
the community at the turn of


the century.
"His father, Henry Allen
Holmes, arrived at Ft. Drum
around 1878 along with his
step-father, Henry L. Parker.
The pair, along with Joel
Swain, a primitive Baptist
preacher, were the original set-
tlers of the community.
"Henry Holmes and his
wife, Joanna Morgan, were the
parents of nine children. Fol-
lowing her death in 1894, he
married Carrie Roberts of
Orange County and they were
the parents of five more chil-
dren. His oldest son, Harley
was born in 1878 "Harley
Holmes opened and operated
a general store in Ft. Drum
during the early 1900s. His
See Holmes Page 2


Special to INI/www.lamartin.com
This was Main Street, Fort Drum about 1912.The building in
the center Is Harley Holmes' general store where Thelma
Holmes worked. The house on extreme right Is the residence
of Harley Holmes and the small building across the street
from the store is Minor Holmes' barber shop.

Continued From Page 1
daughter, Thelma, 87 years
young when Twila wrote this
account in 1989, recalled her life
in Ft. Drum.
"I worked in the store. We
didn't keep it open all the time.
I'd have to take the key and go
out there and wait on people
when they came. The Indians
traded there a whole lot. They
would sell their hides and we
shipped them. I can't remember
where the company was locat-
ed.'
"She said they were mainly
coon and gator hides that the
Indians brought into their store.
They would also bring in huckle-
berries to sell to the store. She
said they would sell clabber to
the Indians.
Thelma recalled the Indians
would camp across the Ft. Drum
Creek.
"They'd have their camp over
there. They'd have a pot of grits
and they would all eat out of it.
They'd eat turtles and gophers,
too,' she said.
"Thelma was quite close to
her grandfather's family. Some
of the children of Henry Holmes'
second family were close in age
to Thelma. The late Addie
Holmes Emerson, a noted histo-
rian, was Thelma's aunt, but
was only two months older than
her niece.
"On a tape of a talk that Addie
gave at Indian Hammock in
1982, she too, recalled some of
those early days just after the
turn of the century and going
into her step-brother's store.
"Now, that was the most fas-


cinating place in the community.
- to get to go to the store. One
thing they had that every child
looked forward to was a nice
long stick of stick candy and you
got that. That old country store
was a real joy to go to. Every-
body come to the store,' she
said.
"Thelma said the stick candy
was similar to a candy cane only
straight and somewhat thicker.
They came in all sorts of flavors
like peppermint, lemon and
peanut butter. She said they cost
a penny each.
"For a little more than two
years from Nov. 25, 1907 to Jan.
26, 1910, Harley Holmes was
also the postmaster in Ft. Drum
with the postal facility located in
the store. Thelma recalled send-
ing out and collecting the mail in
those days before the railroad
came through the town.
"J.M. Lee would go over in
horse and wagon to meet the
train and pick up the mail.
Sometimes he had to wait a long
time. Then he met the train at
night to send the mail out," she
said.
"The family had a garden and
she said when they were build-
ing the railroad, that there was a
large group of men working on
the construction crew and they
used to come to her house and
buy vegetables out of the gar-
den. They especially wanted to-
buy turnips and collards..
"We had a big field of cane.
We had a cane mill and we
made syrup every year. We had
to strip that cane and they called
it Japanese cane. It was the best
syrup in the world, I thought
then. But I don't care for it now,"
Thelma said.
"In addition to the store, her

father was in the cattle business.
When the time came for a
roundup on the open prairie, all
the cattlemen would join in.
Florida was all open range in
those days and not a fence was
in sight on the prairies. The cat,
tlemen would range for miles
collecting all the cattle. Then,,
they would separate them and
each owner would claim his
own cattle.
"When they had a roundup,'
they'd all go out together.
They'd take an ox wagon and
carry their rations in the ox
wagon. They'd be out for eight
or ten days sometimes. All the
men who owned cattle would
go," Thelma recalled.
"The cook was the man who
drove the ox wagon. She said
the cook that worked for her
grandfather Holmes was a man
named Walter Rhymes. She
remembered a humorous inci-
dent.
"He'd sit up there on the seat
and he'd slump. Grandpa would
say, 'Sit up straight. You're not
supposed to slump on your
backbone,' she said with a
chuckle.
"They'd come in (the store)
and they'd pay me daddy a quar-
ter a dozen for biscuits. And I'd
have to make a lard can lid full of
biscuits. I wasn't very big and I'd
be standing on a little chair that 1
had and.make the biscuits. They
would carry them for about ten
days. Usually, they carried a
cook along to cook for them.
They would bake biscuits there
in a Dutch oven over the fire.
They also carried sweet pota-
toes," she said.
"Addie Emerson recalled that
she went with her mother, Car-
rie, to the woods and the camp.

when the roundup was on.
"We'd go out to the coW
camp and my mother was as
good at chopping a cabbage
palm as any man you ever knew.
She could really get one down in
a hurry and have it in the pot
boiling in no time at all. That
was the way we camped. That
was camping in the raw. Of
course, we butchered beef every
time they had a roundup. We
had a nice slab of meat hanging
over the fire. They would cut a
palmetto stump and stick it in
the ground and it (the meat)
would drip its fat into those
embers and that is good eating,'
she said.
"Thelma said that she doesn't
recall just where they'd drove
the cattle to in order to sell them.
She said that she does recall that
when they drove them over to
the West Coast, they would lose
a lot of them. She said that a lot
of ite time, the mosquitoes
wouid swarm so bad that it
would cause the cattle to stam-
pede.
"She remembered that there
were times of "frolic" as well. Ft.
Drum was well known for its
square dances in the early days.
"Every Fourth of July, they
would have a big picnic. They
would roast whole beef. Every-
body who was running for office
in Ft. Pierce would come over. It
was part of St. Lucie County
then, I guess," she said.
."In 1905, St. Lucie County
was formed from the southern
part of Brevard County. Ft.
Pierce wA established as the
county seat and Ft. Drum was a
part of this county until Okee-
chobee County was formed in
1917." .

Pro bass tour returns to Okeechobee


By Loma Jablonski
The Wave Worms HT3 Profes-
sional Bass Tour will return to
Okeechobee on Aug. 12 after a
four-month swing through Winter
Haven, Istokpoga, Kissimmee and
Lake Harris. Sixty-five anglers are
already pre-registered for the 100-
field event. Top prize will be
approximately $5,000 with a full
field. Anglers will launch from
Okee-Tantie Marina at safe light
and return there for weigh-ins.
There will also be a special grand
prize valued at $250 for some lucky
spectator.
The tour has taken a new direc-
tion this season with a one-flight
weigh-in. Anglers are allowed to

Free golf tips
By Daniel Shube
Planning the perfect golf vaca-
tion takes time, expertise and even-
tually plenty of cash. The world
beckons, however if you are not
careful, you will not have the time
of your life. There are no mulligans
in golf travel.
I recently read the book Plan-
ning the Ultimate Golf Vacation by
David M. Baum and the Editors of
Golf Odyssey. It is a concise guide
providing all you need to know
about golf travel.
Baum travels to play courses
worldwide as often as you and I
dream of doing so. He has played
almost 1,000 courses at 500 resorts
in 30 countries during the past 15
years. Baum pays his way to not
compromise his ability to rate the
course.
While the book is short (only 40
pages) it is packed with useful


bring their fish to the scale any time
from 2:30 until 4 p.m.
"We have found that the one-
flight weigh-in is better on the fish
during these hot summer months,"
stated HT3 president Pat Malone.
"By having a one-flight weigh-in,
anglers can bring their fish to the
scale anytime between 2:30 and 4
p.m. There is less time waiting to
weigh in; very little time spent
standing in line at the scale and the
choice to come in early or stay out
on the lake until the last minute."
In addition to the one-day pro
angler tournament on Aug. 12,
there will be a benefit team tourna-
ment on Aug. 13. The team tour-
ney will be held as part of Angler
Appreciation Day, hosted by HT3.


Following the tournament a barbe-
cue cooked by Bob Stafford and
friends will be held for anglers and
their families.
"This will not be an official tour
stop and no points will be award-
ed," said Mr. Malone. "Several
anglers suggested that we have a
fun/buddy tournament during
Angler Appreciation Day."
"For all the tour does for us
anglers, we want to give some-
thing back. So we wanted to hold a
tournament where we can fish for
a few hours, eat some good food,
enjoy the fellowship and benefit
the Tour", stated Harlin Griggs, one
of the anglers who suggested that a
team tournament be held in con-
junction with the barbecue.


"Mr. Griggs suggested that we
donate some of the proceeds from
the tournament to the Community
Rebuilding Ecumenical Workforce
(C.R.E.W.)," stated Mr. Malone.
"These anglers never cease to
amaze me," said Mr. Malone.
"They are a great bunch of guys."
C.R.E.W. is an organization of
volunteers who have been work-
ing together to build new homes
for needy families in Hendry and
Glades Counties.
The Wave Worms HT3 Profes-
sional Bass Tour has already
awarded over $120,000 in pay-
backs to the anglers participating in
their tournaments for the 2006 sea-
son.

information about where to play.
More importantly, how to get there
in one piece (that includes your
clubs). Advice on using shipping
services and packing for play will
come in handy so you are not
caught off guard when you arrive at
your destination.


Simple things like tipping are
explained in detail. Another excel-
lent bit of advice is offered on the
best time of day to play.
Baum is the Editor of Golf
Odyssey, a newsletter that provides
insight about where in the world to
play. He has been reviewing cours-
es for 15 years, advising readers on
where to (and not to) play.
When you think about how
much a high-end golf trip costs, it is
worth spending a little time and
money to educate yourself first.
This book sells for $27.95 (soft
cover) and is available at
Amazon.com.

ately from Baum's expertise and
start saving money fast, here's a tip
for you. Go to Baum's website at

Baum is providing this free
opportunity as away of introducing
you to his site and newsletter, but
there is no obligation. According to
Baum, "We like to think of Golf
Odyssey as the traveling golfer's
best friend." Baum continues, "Our
Editors give insider advice on
where and when to go. We do our
job with passion and pragmatism,
not to mention integrity."
Baum's top five picks for golf
destinations with your buddies are

mend taking Baum's advice prior

USDA MAL and LDP program


GAINESVILLE, The U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
(USDA) Commodity Credit Corpo-
ration (CCC) has changed the mar-
keting assistance loan (MAL) and
loan deficiency payment (LDP)
program, announced Kevin L. Kel-
ley, State Executive Director of the
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA).
The amended policies and proce-
dures affect the 2006 and subse-
quent crop years.
CCC made the changes in
Chapter 7 of the Code of Federal
Regulations, Part 1421 (7 CFR Part
1421) through a final rule issued
June 6, 2006.The rule is posted
online at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/dafp/psd/
7cfrl421.pdf. On July 7, 2006, CCC
clarified some of the changes to
open storage, contract policy and
other issues through, Notice LP-
2035. The notice is posted online
at:
ftp://l65.221.16.16/public/notic
es/lp_2035.pdf.
Some of the regulatory changes
to the MAL and LDP program
include:

Citrus can continue to be exported


LAKELAND- An interim rule
amending requirements for the
movement of fresh fruit from Flori-
da was announced by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
(USDA) Animal Plant Health
Inspection Service. The need for
the interim rule arose after the Jan.
10, 2006 announcement that the
eradication of citrus canker was no
longer possible in Florida, leading
to a new science-based approach
for managing the disease.
"I commend the USDA for pro-
viding an avenue for Florida citrus
to continue to be exported to the 45
non-citrus-producing U.S. states as
well as internationally," said Mike
Sparks, executive vice
president/CEO of Florida Citrus
Mutual.
This interim rule provides the
greatest level of certainty to safe-
guard other citrus-producing states
from the introduction of citrus
canker, while also allowing the
continued utilization of Florida's
export markets.
If citrus canker were detected in
another citrus-producing state,.
according to the USDA, this interim
rule pr:, ides a frarnme ork to eslab-
lish an appropriate regulatory
response based on the nature of
the outbreak. In addition, the inter-
im rule allows fresh fruit that would
not otherwise be eligible for inter-
state movement to be delivered to a
port for immediate export if the
shipment meets the entry condi-
tions of the importing country.

tions did not state that a producer
loses beneficial interest in a loan
eligible commodity when the com-
modity is delivered to a dairy, feed-
lot, ethanol plant, feed mill, wool
pool or other end-use facility. The
regulations were amended to state
that beneficial interest is lost when
a loan eligible commodity is deliv-
ered to one of the previously men-
tioned facilities.
Announcement of the adjusted
world price (AWP) for rice CCC
changed the announcement time
and day from Tuesdays at 3 p.m.
Eastern time (ET) to Wednesdays
at 7a.m. ET.
Lien searches and financing
statements After reviewing the
costs incurred by CCC and the ben-
efits to CCC, CCC will limit its use of
lien searches for MALs greater than
$25,000 and file financing state-
ments only for farm-stored MAL
disbursements of $25,000 or more.
In the past, CCC conducted lien
searches on all loans regardless of
the loan amount. CCC may, how-
ever, conduct lien searches and file
financing statements for loan dis-
bursements of $25,000 or less
when there is reason to believe that


ea.
Use of form CCC-633 EZ In an
effort to simplify the LDP request
process, CCC recently issued a new
LDP form, CCC-633 EZ. The CCC-
633 EZ is a two-part form consist-
ing of an agreement, which is page
1 of the CCC-633 EZ, and a request
for benefits, which is either pages
2, 3 or 4, depending on the com-
modity.
The 2002 Farm Bill provides for
MALs and LDPs for the 2002-2007
crops of wheat, corn, grain
sorghum, barley, oats, soybeans,
other oilseeds (including sun-
flower seed, canola, safflower,
flaxseed, rapeseed, mustard seed,
crambe, and sesame seed), rice,
upland cotton, peanuts, honey,
wool, mohair, dry peas, lentils and
small chickpeas.
MALs provide producers inter-
im financing at harvest time to
meet cash flow needs without hav-
ing to sell their commodities when
market prices, are typically at har-
vest-time lows. Allowing producers
to store production at harvest facili-
tates more orderly marketing of
commodities throughout the year,

Gov. Bush breaks ground on massive reservoir npinty n ni
*OW8Za co9 a..Eml


PALM BEACH COUNTY- Gover-
nor Jeb Bush joined local, state and
federal leaders to break ground on
one of the most expansive reser-
voirs in the world as part of the
massive effort to restore America's
Everglades. When complete, the
first component of the Everglades
Agricultural Area Reservoir will
cover 25 square miles and provide
190,000 acre-feet of water storage
to better manage water released
from Lake Okeechobee and to
improve the timing and quality of
water delivered to the famed River
of Grass. The $400 million reservoir
is the flagship project of the State's
Acceler8 initiative to complete
eight critical Everglades restoration
projects ahead of schedule.
"Florida is keeping its promise
to restore the River of Grass and
protect this national treasure," said
Governor Bush. "By constructing
this massive water storage system,
we can better control water releas-
es, restore wildlife habitat and pro-
tect the state's estuaries."
Engineers will move close to 18
million cubic yards of earth to con-
struct the Everglades Agricultural
Area Reservoir on 16,700 acres of
former farmland. Along with cap-
turing runoff from agricultural
areas, the reservoir will store fresh-
water releases from Lake Okee-
chobee to reduce harmful dis-


Indian River Lagoon

South Restoration gets

federal authorization


When people began draining
the wetlands in St. Lucie and
Martin counties 100 years ago,
few people even suspected that
the long term effects would
include damaging one of the
most productive estuaries in the
United States.
But the natural habitat need-
ed by thousands of plant and
animal species has been altered
by decades of discharging fresh
water from canals into the St.
Lucie River and southern Indian
River Lagoon.
In recent years, the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection and
the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers began work to reverse the
trend through the Indian River
Lagoon South'Restorationi Pro-
ject. It is a massive undertaking
that includes building 130,000
acre-feet of water storage reser-
voirs, 35,000 acre-feet of
stormwater treatment areas, and
restoring 92,000 acres of natural
lands. The District and state have
already acquired most of the
land needed for these projects.
Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration received crucial fed-
eral endorsement when the U.S.
Senate passed the Water
Resources Development Act in
July. The act, and its counterpart
passed by the House in 2005,
includes construction authoriza-
tion for the project. A compro-
mise version of the House and
Senate bills will be crafted by a
joint congressional committee.
The next step is to seek feder-
al funding for the project $1.2
billion split between the state
and U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers.
"Reducing the amount of
freshwater flushed into the river
and lagoon will help maintain
the delicate salinity levels need-
ed for plants, fish and birds to
thrive here," said Lennart Lin-
dahl, South Florida Water Man-
agement District Governing
Board member. "Congressional
funding is critical for the success


of this vital restoration project."
One major component of the
Indian River South Restoration
Project already under way is at
the C-44 (St. Lucie Canal) Reser-
voir and Stormwater Treatment
Area in rural Martin County. At
the testing site, engineers will
use results from a year's worth
of observation to determine the
best construction materials and
designs for an above-ground
reservoir covering 3,400 acres,
and a 6,200-acre stormwater
treatment area. Martin County is
a partner in this project, con-
tributing $27 million toward land-
for the stormwater treatment
area.
The C-44 project is also part
of the state's Acceler8 Ever-
glades restoration initiative, a
group of $1.7 billion in ecosys-
tem recovery projects jump-
started ahead of federal funding
guarantees.
As Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration progresses, reser-
voirs and stormwater treatment
areas will be built along the C-23
and C-24 canals, providing stor-
age and treatment for freshwater
that otherwise would damage
the St. Lucie River.
Land managers are also
restoring the native vegetation
and removing constructed
drainage on about 20,000 acres
in the Allapattah Ranch area,
said Dave Unsell, regional proj-
ect manager for Indian River
Lagoon South Restoration. Pine
seedlings were recently planted
to begin re-creating the area's
historic pinewoods habitat.
Overall, the Indian River
Lagoon South Restoration Pro-
ject is part of the 50-50 federal-
state Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan. Florida is com-
mitted to investing $3.2 billion
through 2010 to restore the Ever-
glades.

Restoration Project and the

charges to the St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee estuaries. The
reservoir will also provide addition-
al water to hydrate the Everglades,
increase flood protection and
allow water managers to capture
and direct phosphorus-laden water
to constructed wetlands for treat-
ment.
"The magnitude of this project
is awe-inspiring," said South Flori-
da Water Management District
Governing Board Chairman Kevin
McCarty, "yet our commitment to
Everglades restoration is just as big.
The EAA Reservoir is one of many
outstanding projects, and they are
all aimed at bringing environmen-
tal benefits to the Everglades
ecosystem as soon as possible."
To guide the EAA Reservoir, the
South Florida Water Management
District initially constructed two
storage areas that together held 24
million gallons of water. These test
reservoirs, called test cells, provid-
ed engineers with critical informa-
tion to design and build the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area Reservoir.
Scheduled for completion in 2010,
the reservoir will store approxi-
mately 62 billion gallons of water
- the equivalent of more than 5
million residential swimming
pools.

voir is the strongest example yet of
how far and fast we have traveled
from planning to concrete action in
the shared federal/state Everglades
restoration effort," said White
House Council on Environmental
Quality Chairman James L. Con-
naughton. "This Acceler8 project is
an essential component of the
infrastructure needed to fulfill the
commitment by President Bush
and Governor Bush to provide the
water needed to revive this impor-
tant ecosystem."
The EAA Reservoir is the largest
of three major reservoirs under
construction as part of the State's
Acceler8 effort. This project is the
first phase of a reservoir system
that will store approximately
360,000 acre-feet of water on
30,000 acres of State-owned land
between the North New River
Canal and the Miami Canal.
Announced by Governor Jeb
Bush in October 2004, Acceler8 is
stepping up the pace of funding,
design and construction to com-
plete eight Everglades restoration
projects over seven years. At sub-


stantial savings to taxpayers, the
projects will restore 100,000 acres
of wetlands, expand water treat-
ment areas by close to 29,000 acres
and provide 428,000 acre-feet of
additional water storage for Ever-
glades restoration a decade ahead
of schedule. Five of the eight Accel-
er8 projects are already underway.
Since February 2006, the State has
expanded three Everglades Agri-
cultural Area treatment wetlands
and launched construction on the
C-43 Caloosahatchee West Storage
Reservoir, the C-44 St. Lucie Canal
Reservoir/Stormwater Treatment
Area and the Acme Basin B Dis-
charge Project.
Under the leadership of Gover-
nor Bush, Florida has forged ahead
to implement the $10.5 billion,
State-federal Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan. Since
2000, Florida has invested more
than $2 billion and committed an
additional $3.2 billion through the
end of the decade to clean up and
restore the famed River of Grass.

er8, visit www.evergladesnow.org.
