Buy a real Christmas tree!


Students of the Week


By Dan Culbreth
Extension Horticulture Agent
,.
The race to Christmas has
"egun. One of the favorite tasks in
Florida homes is to put up the
Christmas tree. This year growers
will donate more than 11,000
Christmas trees to U.S. troops and
.their families this holiday season.
Even the White House chooses a
Yeal tree a beautiful 18.5-foot tall
Douglas-fir tree from Pennsylvania
is the 2006 Official White House
-Christmas Tree.
Today's column will point out
some facts about fake trees, tell
'how to find a Florida-grown Christ-
mas tree, suggest ways to choose
the right real tree for your holiday,
provide information about Christ-
.mas tree "hitchhikers", and
announce a $10,000 scholarship
contest for kids.
Avoid fakes
According to Department of
Commerce, in 2005 the U.S. spent
$131 million on 9.2 million import-
ed fake trees. Did you know that
Ihe first fake trees were produced
by a company that made toilet
brushes? Today these products are
Tiade of plastic, metal, and even
'wood which in one case, was
'banned from importation into the
'U.S. Some fake trees come.from
foreign sweatshops and others
'have warning labels because they
contain lead; and, in some con-
sumer tests, they are,not as inflam-
mable as the fireproof labeling indi-
cates.
Consider Florida trees
:. An alternative to imported plas-
'tic that supports our agricultural
'economy is to choose a live tree.
Did you know that Florida has
Christmas tree farms? While most
of these cut your own Christmas
tree farms are in North Florida, the
closest are in Lake County; others
are near Daytona, Ocala, and
Gainesville.
- There are several excellent
sources of information available on
how to choose and display your
live Christmas tree. I've written a
few articles on these subjects, that
are on our website, and printed
copies can be picked up at our
office.
The Florida Department of Agri-
culture actively promotes this prod-

uct to consumers and provides

and,.if you will purchase a live tree
from an out of state supplier, look
to the National Christmas Tree
Association for lots of good infor-
mation on tree selection and care.
Unwanted hitchhikers
Sometimes consumers report
that bugs on their live Christmas
trees have invaded their house.
According to the North Carolina
Extension Service, your real Christ-
mas tree may rarely have any
unwanted hitchhikers. There are
several kinds of insects that spend
the winter in conifers such asFraser
fir. When you bring the tree into
your home, they think spring has
come and become active again. In
many ways, these hitchhikers are a
"symptom" of a fresh recently har-
vested tree.
Should the growers have treat-
ed for these pests? Unfortunately,
they didn't even know they were
there. As few as one tree per acre
might have one of these post-har-
vest pests on it. Although Christmas
trees are regularly scouted for pests
that damage the tree, these post-
harvest pests are rarely observed in
the field. No one knows they are in
the tree until they are brought into
the home.
.Pesticide treatments of every
Christmas 'tree before harvest
would be unthinkable because of
the possible pesticide residues that
would affect:not only farm workers
but consumers. Most growers use
pesticides only when they are
needed to preserve tree quality and
X hen Ihevy wouldd efteclInely con-
trol the pest. For these unwanted
critters, it would not be worth treat-
ing all harvested trees for the hand-
ful of treeswIith hitchhikers.
If you're used to seeing aphids
on your roses, you might be sur-
prised by the appearance of Cinara
aphids. They are much larger and
brown to-black and have been mis-
taken for ticks. However, ticks have
never been found on Christmas


trees at any time of year.
The spruce spider mite is a com-
mon pest of Fraser fir. Spider mites
are very small, and appear as dark-
red dots when shaken out of the
tree. With a magnifying lens, you
can see the eight legs characteristic
of mites. Spider mites can't live in
your house. Once the tree is
removed, they will die out. While
spider mites could cause small red
stains on carpets, ornaments, or
furnishings, they do not bite, nor do
they cause any diseases.
Praying mantids are a well-
known insect predator. Their egg
cases are frequently found in
Christmas trees. In the fall, female
mantids lay eggs in a frothy liquid
which hardens into an egg case
that sticks to the branch. Once
warmed inside the home, the eggs
may hatch and tiny mantids can
invade your home. Again, these
insects do not bite or carry
disease. If the egg case can be
located, remove it from the tree
and put it outside. Small mantids
that have escaped can be vacu-
umed up or caught and released
outside.

Builders Club helps charity
Members of the Yearling Middle School (YMS) Builders Club purchased school supplies
and toys to be distributed to needy children through Operation Christmas Child thanks to
a $200 donation from Yearling's FFA chapter. The supplies were wrapped in shoe boxes
and then taken to First Baptist Church of Okeechobee where they were added to the Oper-
ation Christmas Child fund. This charity is sponsored each year by local churches in our
area to benefit children who may be refugees of war, survivors of a natural disaster or vic-
tims of poverty.


For a good cause
Emilie Lege (left) and Taylor Fulford (right) of the Yearling Middle School Builders Club

Talent show planned at OHS


- By Victoria Hannon
:Special to Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School
:(OHS) plans to hold a mock rock
*talent show on Jan. 17, at 7 p.m.
:The show will be open to the pub-
lic and tickets are estimated to cost,
*around $6.
The mock rock talent show is a
talent show divided into two parts.
The first part will feature talents of
all kinds, from standup comedy to
dancing. The
second por- ,f -
;tion of the ,

Will ;. ^' ^ -
allow
students to
showcase their lip syncing talent.
This portion of the show will fea-
ture students singing and dancing
to the songs of their favorite artist.


. The entry fee for students wish-
ing to take part in this event is $15.
After sign ups, students are
required to perform their acts for
members of the administration to
approve. First place is estimated to
carry a prize of roughly $150.
"We are pushing students to
sign up before the Christmas
break," said Gina Davis, OHS dean
and senior sponsor. "We will still
allow students to sign up until
about a week before the show, but
that isn't that long after break."
As a senior fundraiser, this
event will put funds toward the
senior class' trip to Grad Nite. It has
recently been announced that the
senior class has decided that they
will opt to take county-provided
school buses to the Disney event.
The vote showed that the majority
of their class preferred a lower tick-


et price to being able to watch a
movie along the way with a 124-92
vote.
"We still need to raise around
$10,000 for the trip to be free," said
Ms. Davis. "Tickets are originally
$58, and there are 360 seniors right
now. Of course, some of those
seniors won't be able to go, not
having met the 2.0 GPA require-
ment of failing to be in good stand-
ing with the dean's office."
Grad Nite is the event that the
majority of the senior fundraising
goes toward. The night allows stu-
dents a final chance to unwind.
with their classmates before grad-
uation. The event is held at Dis-
ney's Magic Kingdom and is
attended by high school seniors
from all around Florida, as well as
a few schools from surrounding
Southeastern states.


Love is a word that is very
-deceptiver maybe even illusive if
we look at it as a noun.. It is not
something that we can buy and
hold in our hands, it is a word
that is filled with action. Love is a
verb. This word is not just a feel-
ing it is a doing. For years all I
ever wanted was to feel loved.
That did not happen because I
was looking for love in all the
wrong places, as the song says. I
was not going to find this love
coming at me and surrounding
me as a fog. I was not going to
feel this love from other people. I
was searching so hard for this
love that I never dreamed that it
was hiding right inside of me.
The reason we have a hard time
finding this love is that the clutter
we have in our heads is standing
in the way. When we can address
this most personal of our Body
Clutter we will begin finding
what we are looking for.
Men and women equate love
much differently. For a man to
show love he often reveals it in
actions; checking our tires,
changing the oil, he is doing
something. He may not be good
at sentimental cards and flowers,
which is how we women equate
love. This is why we need to look
at the various ways that love is
done. How do you love your chil-
dren? You feed them, dress them,
bathe them, and do things for
them. We do the same thing for
the critters in our lives. We
scratch their ears and rub their
bellies. Robert explained this to
me this morning. Last year our
hound dog Lucy died and we got
another sweet hound dog. He
said that he could sit in his chair
and think about how much he
loves this new dog or he could
get up and go over and pet her.
Then he would be loving on her
and she would feel his love for
her. It would not be a passive
experience just for him but a
shared event for both of them.
Then he turned this around.
He said when we are loving our-
selves we are the giver and the
recipient at the same time. That
is when he headed out the door'
to play in the woods. This is one
thing that he loves to do. When
you are doing things that you
love; you are loving yourself.
With our FLYing way of life we
only surround ourselves with
things we love. We turn chores
into blessings and release the
stress from our lives by using
routines to put us on autopilot.
These are all forms of love but in
our female definition of love this
is just stuff we have to do.
We have to find ways to show
ourselves love the way we under-
stand it and will recognize it as
love. But since we are doing it for


ourselves Wejusst dorol accept it
inrthe same way ve would d if it
came from someorie .else. This is
why we have a new Pampering
habit for December. These are lit-
tle things that we can do each
day to pamper ourselves. They
can be anything, that you can
think of to do something nice for
you. You can snuggle with a cup
of warmth or curl up with a
favorite book or magazine. Settle
into a tub of bubbles or put on
some of your favorite music. Pick
up a flower at the grocery store
so that every time you look at it
you will smile. Light candles in
your home or put crystals in the
window so that rainbows dance
across your room. These always
make me smile.
I was taught many years ago
by Rita Davenport "to fake it till
you make it." I didn't really know
what that meant till recently; I
just did like she said. Fake it till
you make it, is nothing but prac-
ticing till a habit becomes auto-
matic. Imagine that, practicing
loving ourselves with little habits
that tell us we are loved by the
person who does those little
things that make us feel the love
we so deserve. The martyr goes
away and you are surrounded by
the loving feeling that you have
been searching for.
So practice loving yourself
first by simple actions and even-
tually you will not do things that
you don't love and you will not
have items in your home that do
not put a smile on your face. This
act of love is as contagious as
your shining sink. You are just
shining your heart.

Since the beginning of time this old
world of ours has been experiencing
disasters and tragic events. Many are
unbelievable! The Black Death in the
14th century took the lives of 75 mil-
lion people. In a period of just six
months in 1918, more than 26 million
people died from Influenza.
Yet, the most tragic, and most touch-
ing of all disasters is that almost 10 mil-
lion people died in Northern China in
1877 from starvation.
Somehow, we can accept disease and
illness, but when we hear of millions
of people perishing just because they
had nothing to eat, it does something
to us.
Today there are nations in the world
where two out of every three of the
people go to sleep at night hungry,
they awaken hungry in the moving
and it lasts all day.
Looking at it in this light it is no won-
der millions of people have time to
bow their heads and give "Thanks"
before each meal they eat.

Guest Commentary


ts DOT putting the


part before

y Victoria Tschinkel
tate Director
the Nature Conservancy


As we entertain visions of
sugarplums dancing in our
ieads, Florida's Department of
transportation (DOT) is working
on what could be one of the sin-
gle most important planning
efforts ever for our state Flori-
da's Future Corridors Action
Plan.
SDOT is only trying to do what
it should do -- plan ahead for
bur transportation needs. Unfor-
unately, their effort would iden-
ify permanent transportation
corridorss for the next 50 years, a
planning horizon putting DOT
well ahead of the timeline of
most state, regional and local
planning processes. The draft
EOT plan identifies nine initial
tudy areas for major new poten-
tial transportation corridors,
vhich if approved, would drive
lew roads into largely rural
ireas of our state.
' Certainly everyone in Florida
has experienced issues with
loads in some areas, growth
iias been allowed to get ahead of
adequate road capacity leading
o traffic jams. In other areas,
new road capacity has been the
catalystt for gro\\th and develop-
nent which, in turn, fills those
oads to capacity.
There is a significant danger,
however, that if the state com-
hits to new road corridors
Before important regional deci-
$ions are made regarding critical
infrastructure such as land
tises, water supplies, natural sys-
tems, agriculture, schools and
housing the road corridor
planningg process could prede-
termine the outcome of those
local planning decisions in the
future.
i By identifying potential corri-
ors that would provide high-
Mpeed transportation access to
tural areas of the state. DOT's
plan could facilitate the conver-
sion of many important agricul-
tural, recreational or natural
lands to urban or suburban use.
DOT recognizes this fact and
one of the documents produced
I connection with the planning
Effort states: "the transportation
investments that Florida makes
6ver the next 25 and 50 years -
If coordinated with regional and
community visions and related
land use, economic develop-
ir


the horse?

ment and environmental man-
agement strategies can help
determine where growth will
occur."
The issue is whether suffi-
cient "regional and community
visions and related land use, eco-
nomic development and' envi-
ronmental management strate-
gies" are available to :be truly
integrated into that process if the
long-range planning does not
exist with regard to local, region-
al or state land-use or environ-
mental management strategies
projecting 25-50 years out, how
can the DOT planning process
adequately take those issues into
account?
So, even though a process
resulting in a plan is a good
thing, DOT's vision may be so far
ahead of other planning that it
ultimately causes growth and
development. Fortunately, at the
recent public meeting in Orlan-
do, Denver Stutler, secretary of
the department, agreed that the
original Dec. 31, 2006, comple-
tion date could be moved to
improve the result and that it
would be better to focus on get-
ting it right, rather than getting it
right now.
That's a laudable objective.-
But even wjf that, ifhe process
ultimately uses a timeline that
projects decades further into the
future than other state, local and
regional planning, the process
will be fundamentally flawed.
A better solution, it seems to
me, would be to have the other
planning efforts in place or
developed together with the
DOT planning process. That
would produce a region-wide
plan for areas where a new road
corridor is a possibility, while .
ensuring that all of the relevant
information-is available and inte-
grated into the process land
use planning, agriculture, water
planning, preservation of natural
resources and habitats, recre-
ation and other elements critical
to maintaining our Florida way
of life.
If we aren't careful, local and
regional planning will reach
decisions determined by the
state transportation planning
process, and not the other way
around.
With good planning, we can
grow and protect our environ-
ment and, yes, get through traffic
to grandmother's house in time
for the holidays.

The annual pre-holiday survey,

Check out gyms before signing contract


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is reminding Florida res-
idents to check out health clubs
before signing any contracts or
all they might end up losing is
money.,
Getting in shape is one of the
top New Year's resolutions and
many people may be considering
buying a gym membership for a
loved one over the holidays.
However, Bronson urges con-
sumers to do their homework
and not assume they can cancel
a contract if they simply change
their minds about attending a
club.
"A gym membership is a great
gift, but it is an. investment and
buyers should be sure that it is a
gift the recipient will use before
They invest the money," Bronson
said. "Health club contracts are
legally binding like any other


contract and require some
thought and investigation."
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices administers the Health Stu-
dio Law, which provides con-
sumers with some rights but also
spells out their responsibilities.
Health clubs are required to reg-
ister with the Department's Divi-
sion of Consumer Services and
many must post a bond that can
be used to repay members if the
facility goes out of business. The
refunds are provided in cases
where members pay prepaid
memberships.
In fiscal year 2005-06, the
Department registered 1,948
health clubs, of which 422 were
new applications. Halfway
through fiscal year 2006-07, 752
health clubs have registered, 184
of which are new applications.
"UnfortunatelI, many people
are so focused on getting in,

Thank you
The Okeechobee Elementary Schools would like to thank
"Surfin the Net" and Eddie Walker, for providing pizza to
the 100-member All County Chorus. The Chorus sang at
the Christmas Tree Lighting in the City Hall Park on Nov.
28. Enjoying the pizza are four members of the Chorus
(left to right): Monica Reyes, Karyna Villalpardo, Lea
Hunter and Destinee Villareal.


shape, they sign up for a mem-
bership without bothering to
read the fine print of a contract,"
Bronson said. "But there are,
issues that are covered that con-
sumers really need to know
about from the onset, such as
under what conditions they can
cancel, what activities are cov-
ered in the membership and
other aspects that may be impor-
tant to the consumer's needs."
The law provides consumers
with the right to cancel a contract
for certain reasons including:
cancellation within three days of
signing a contract, exclusive of
holidays and weekends, but it
must be done in writing; if the
facility moves more than five
miles away from the original
location and fails to provide,
within 30 days, a facility of equal
quality located within five miles;
if a person becomes physically
unable to use most of the servic-
es for which they contracted,
until the disability ends.
Bronson also recommends
consumers follow these tips
before signing a contract:
Call the Department's
helpline at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-
800-435-7352) to make sure the :
health studio is registered and toin
check its complaint history.
Find out if the studio has post-
ed a bond with the Department,
as most that collect fees in
advance are required to do.
Prior to joining, ask about the
club's cancellation policy should
you move or become physically
unable to use the facility.
Before signing up, visit the
club during the hours you intend
to use it to determine whether it
is overcrowded and the equip-
ment you plan to use is available.
Find out if any of the services
offered require an additional fee.

Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be

extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
