Stolen sheriff's car recovered
DAYTONA BEACH (AP) A marked sheriff's cruiser allegedly
stolen by a man who'd been handcuffed in the back seat was recov-
ered early Sunday, but the suspect remains at large, officials said.
Volusia County sheriff's deputies and a helicopter crew were
unable to find the car in an exhaustive search Saturday night. It was
spotted by Ormond Beach patrol officers behind a furniture store
" about 12 miles from where it was originally taken.
The incident began after an unnamed deputy was flagged down
during a parking lot fight Saturday night, sheriff's spokesman Brandon
Haught said. After breaking up the argument the deputy learned one of
the men involved, Walter J. Nutt, 29, of Lakeland, had two open war-
rants for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon and violation of
probation for retail theft.
The deputy handcuffed Nutt and placed him in the back of the
patrol car. He then stepped away, with the car door open and keys in
the ignition, to check on the serial number of a nearby vehicle.
Deputies initially believed someone else hopped in the car and
drove off, but now think Nutt, who is extremely thin, was able to kick
S out the mesh screen and wiggle into the driver's seat.
He likely unhooked the handcuffs using a key on the ring left in the
car's ignition, Haught said.

Scratch out poison ivy in your Florida Yards Education Briefs


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Last week an office visitor
asked to see a picture of poison
ivy he had been working in an
overgrown area and thought he'd
seen something familiar. Next he
rolled up his shirt sleeve and
showed me a raging rash. The
claim was, "I never got it before,
so I didn't think it was poison ivy."
Poison ivy is found in Florida
Yards, along fence lines, in natural
areas and, yes, even by the beach.
Everyone needs to know this
native plant is well established
here. And for many, touching this
plant or its relatives will result in
skin rashes.
Being able to identify this plant
is a first step in avoiding this poi-
sonous plant. It's also necessary
to scratching out this weed from
Florida Yards. I wouldn't suggest
you bring in a specimen for posi-
tive ID. Instead, take a look at the
pictures in UF Extension Agent
Pat Grace's Poison Ivy Bulletin,
available at our office, or sneak a
peek at the photos on our web-
site.
A relative problem
Many people get rashes that
look like that of poison ivy, but
swear "they were nowhere near
it". Several relatives of this itchy
invader are also found in our area.
These include edible plants such
as the mango, pistachio and
cashew, the invasive-exotic Brazil-
ian peppertree, and native
sumacs and poisonwood. There-
fore, if you get a rash from poison
ivy, be careful with mangos and
be prepared when chopping out
those problematic peppers from
your Florida Yard.
Our eastern poison ivy has the
name Toxicodendron radicans,
although some may call it rhus
radicans. Any way you call it, look
for a climbing woody vine that
can live for many years. The stem
has small aerial roots that let it
cling to upright trunks of trees or
palms and walls. This is a com-
mon plant in local woodlands.
When cabbage palms are
moved from the wild into the
landscape, .poison ivy vines can
also be transplanted with them.
Less common is the appearance
of a seedling under powerlines,
courtesy of one of our feathered
friends.
Leaves of three
The leaf of this plant, or more
correctly, the leaflet, is quite vari-
able in shape. Most have heard of
the adage: "leaves of three let
them be." Poison ivy leaves actu-
ally consist of three shiny
leaflets. Individual leaflets meas-
ure from two to four inches long
and are pointed at the tip.
Poison ivy is often confused
with other multiple leaved plants.
A common look-alike is another
native vine, Virginia creeper,
which has five dull-green leaflets.
Small yellowish-green flowers
appear in the spring and grow in
clusters right above the leaf


Special to Okeechobee News/Dan Culbert, UF/IFAS
The three shiny leaflets (inside the circle) are all one leaf.
Poison ivy foliage turns red when it is stressed by poor
growing conditions.


Special to Okeechobee News/Dan Culbert, UF/IFAS
Be careful if palms from the wild are transplanted to your
yard. They may also bring this unwanted viney visitor.


stalks. Seed-like fruits, with a soft
fleshy covering, are one-quarter
inch in size and grayish-white
when the clusters ripen in the
fall. In winter, poison ivy leaves
turn red and fall from the vine -
but be aware they still have sap
that can cause rashes.
The fruit of poison sumac,
which is not native to our area, is
also whitish in color. The sumacs
found in our area have red fruit,
and are important as a food
source for wildlife. Poison oaks
are likewise not found here in
South Central Florida.
An irritating oil
Inside these plants is a chemi-
cal called urushiol. This toxin irri-
tates skin and mucous mem-
branes. Some people are quite
sensitive to the effects while oth-
ers show no problems. Sensitivity
to the poison ivy relatives can also


come and go as we get older.
Urushiol has no effect on other
animals, but pets may get this oil
on their hair and carry it to us.
Susceptible people show
intense itching within hours, or it
may take several days after con-
tact with the poison oil. Skin
inflammation and blisters then
erupt on the skin. Itching doesn't
spread the rash., but oil-residues'
under the; fingernail ''might
"spread the red". And note that
burning poison ivy plant parts is
not a good idea: the sap in the
smoke can spread the toxin.
Preparing
to rip it out
Extremely sensitive persons
should ask for help when remov-
ing these plants. If you expect
exposure to these plants, prepare
with what you wear, and use the
new lotions that prevent


rashes. Lotions and creams con-
taining the active ingredient ben-
toquatam (e.g.: Ivy-Block) should
be used before the weed-whack-
ing begins. When properly
applied, 15 minutes before expo-
sure to the poison ivy relatives,
the symptoms may be eliminated.
Long pants and long sleeved
shirts, fully enclosed shoes, with
leather or canvas gloves are sug-
gested. If vines or branches are
growing above, protective eye
wear and a wide-brimmed hat
should also be worn. Avoid
brushing up against the plants as
much as possible during removal
operations. Protective clothing
should be removed as soon as
practical after exposure to these
plants. Don't mix these clothes
with other laundry the irritat-
ing oil could be transferred.
If accidental exposure to poi-
son ivy occurs, a ten percent
water solution of potassium per-
manganate applied 5-10 minutes
after exposure may prevent rash-
es. It should be followed by
repeated washes with soap and
cool water to remove the oily sap.
Thousands of other folk-remedies
also exist, but few work for every-
one. In case of severe reactions,
get to a hospital or consult with
qualified medical professionals.
Ivy removal
Hand cultivation and pruning
(with gloves on) may work for
small plants if the person is not
fully sensitized. This may be the
best approach if weed killers
would damage desirable plants
growing close to this vine.
In most cases, herbicides are
probably the better choice. Many
can be used directly on poison ivy
leaves growing along fences.
Some granular herbicides are
labeled for longer follow-up ivy
control. However, most of these
pesticides will also injure or kill
desirable trees that harbor these
vines.
A technique that I like to sug-
gest is to cut out a section of
actively growing vine and
promptly applying a legal herbi-
cide to the bottom half of the cut
stem to control resprouting.
Choose an herbicide only after
reading the pesticide label. At the
time of this writing, some herbi-
cides legally used on poison ivy
relatives may contain 2,4-D,
glyphosate, imazapyr, and tri-
clopyr. Some products are labeled
for specific sites,: and. pesticide,

Governor activates insurance pool


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush and the Florida Cabinet
voted unanimously to activate a
state reinsurance pool to support
private property insurance for
Florida businesses. The move is a
response to the growing commer-
cial insurance challenge in the
state. Governor Bush continues to
aggressively seek measures pro-
viding insurance relief for resi-
dents and businesses.
"The availability and afford-
ability of insurance is the biggest
threat to our incredibly robust and
growing economy," said Gover-
nor Bush. "Getting insurance,
especially at a price they can
afford, can make or break a small
business today. Small businesses
need our help."
Many businesses across Flori-
da have lost their commercial
property insurance or can no
longer afford the premiums to
retain coverage. The challenges
are the result of global reinsurers
dramatically raising rates and lim-
iting the amount of coverage they
are willing to write in Florida fol-
lowing two unprecedented hurri-
cane seasons. Insurance compa-
nies purchase reinsurance to
cover catastrophic losses in the
wake of hurricanes.
Governor Bush directed Flori-
da Insurance Commissioner
Kevin McCarty and the Office of
Insurance Regulation to examine
all avenues of providing relief to
residents and businesses. Florida
law allows for the creation of a
commercial pool to provide
insurance for those who qualify


for the coverage but cannot
access it in the voluntary market.
The draft rule approved today will
commence the hearing process.
Public input will be sought before
the rule returns to the Cabinet for
a final vote on the activation of the
state reinsurance pool.
A survey conducted by the
Office of Insurance Regulation
found that policies of 42 percent
of respondents were either can-
celled or not renewed by their
insurer in the last six months. By
paying higher rates and receiving
reduced coverage, 32 percent of
respondents were able to secure
new policies. Some of the respon-
dents said they may have to relo-
cate their businesses to other
states due to these challenges. For
more information on the survey
results, please visit
www.floir.com.
To boost the viability and
health of the marketplace, the
state is matching dollar-for-dol-
lar up to $250 million in new
capital from private insurers who
are committed to write new poli-
cies for commercial insurance.
The state will match individual
insurance companies up to $25
million. Public funding will allow
private insurers to leverage the
combined equity to assume addi-
tional risk and write new policies.
The public-private partnership
could generate as much as $1 bil-
lion in private insurance during
the next two hurricane seasons.
In June, Governor Jeb Bush
signed Senate Bill 1980, the first
step to addressing the challenges

in the insurance market caused
by two unprecedented back-to-
back hurricane seasons that gen-
erated nearly $40 billion in losses.
In addition to providing the $250
million to create the reinsurance
pool launched today, the law pro-
vided $715 million to reduce the
deficit in Citizens and $250 million
for free inspections and grants for
homeowners to harden residen-
tial property against the devastat-
ing impact of future hurricanes.
"Increasing funding to cover
more risk will bring new capital
into the marketplace, which
means private insurers can write
more policies," said Lt. Governor
Toni Jennings. "Hardening homes
and businesses against potential
damage reduces risk. Combining
these two principles expanding
the amount of risk in the market-
place, while reducing the risk on
existing policies will help stabi-
lize prices and availability."
Governor Bush recently creat-
ed the Property and Casualty
Insurance Reform Committee.
The Committee will hold an orga-
nizational meeting on August 8th

ernor Toni Jennings, the Commit-
tee will analyze a variety of pro-
posals and make

nor, President of the Senate and

sentatives to bolster the private
insurance market in Florida.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Race Car Bed
Do-it-yourselfers will have the little ones racing off
to sleep with this sleek race car bed project. Built
mostly from plywood, it's designed to be inexpen-
sive, sturdy and easy to build-in fact, it's a fun pro-
ject for parents and kids to build together.
The completed race car bed measures 86 inches
long by 48 inches wide by 20 inches tall, although
two sets of specifications allow it to be built for
either a junior or twin-size mattress.
The plan includes step-by-step instructions with
photos, full-size traceable patterns, a materials list
and more.
Race Car Bed plan (No. 502)... $9.95
Kids' Beds Package (No. C76)
Four projects incl. 502 ... $24.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)
To order, circle item(s), Please be sure to
clip & send w/ check to: include your name,
U-Bild Features address and the name of
15241 Stagg St this newspaper. Allow
