SFWMD web site
offers water info
Due to the extreme water
shortage situation in South
Florida, water restrictions have
been placed throughout the
region based on impact to the
resource and they vary from
% one area to the next.
The South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) recently implement-
ed an interactive option on
their web site at
www sfwmd.gov that allows
residents to enter their zip code
to find the water restrictions for
their area.
As the web site was initially
being developed, some of the
links to the zip codes in the
Okeechobee area incorrectly
indicated that groundwater
wells in the--area were also
under mandatory restrictions.
Although everyone is strongly
encouraged to conserve water,
the use of groundwater wells is
not restricted at this time.
For information, contact the
SFWMD Okeechobee Service
Center at (863) 462-5260 or
(800) 250-4200.
Locks closing
due to low water
Beginning Friday. April 27,
the navigation locks at J&S,
Henry Creek, Lakeport and
Buckhead Ridge will be dosed
due to low water levels.
Thelocks will remain closed
until the water levels come
back up.

Henry Ford gave us advice


By Beryl Bowden, 1984
Transcribed and edited, by
MaryAnn Morris
Thanks to the generosity of
the Clewiston Museum, we
have copies of the wonderful
history articles Ms. Beryl Bow-
den wrote while she was
employed by the Clewiston
News. She, like iWila Valentine
of Okeechobee, is an inspira-
tion and we are grateful to be
able to re-run her writings.
"It was November, 1931, the
nation was still struggling to rise
out of the great depression
when Henry Ford was inter-
viewed by the Clewiston News
while on a visit here to see the
sugar mill in operation. Among
other things, Mr. Ford said, "I
would not insure unemploy-
ment; to me that looks like the

surest way of establishing
unemployment as a permanent
evil. What we should do is abol-
ish it and that can be done. The
world is full of work that ought
to be done. But very little effort
is being made toward it. All the
effort has gone toward 'insuring
unemployment'... I am afraid
of any kind of artificial interfer-
ence with natural production."


He was referring, I believe to
Federal Unemployment Insur-
ance, which would have been
an issue two years after the
Stock Market crash in 1929,
which lead to the depression.
"Henry Ford and Thomas A.
Edison, both of whom had win-
ter homes in Fort Myers, were
among the nationally known
visitors to the Glades area in the
1920s and 30s. Mr. Ford became
a frequent visitor after he
acquired, in 1924, a large
acreage at Fort Thompson, the
present site of Port LaBelle.
"E.E. Goodno had mortgaged
the property to Mr. Ford for
$178,000; when he was unable
to pay off the mortgage, he sold
to Ford, who paid him an addi-
tional $172,000 for his remain-

remained as manager there fc
several years, but Mr. Ford took
keen interest and became a figure
to local residents and especially t
the late E. Cornett of Clewisto
who with Blitz Wegan at that tim
was in the Ford dealership a
LaBelle. He recalled Ford's direct
manner and called him an "eas
customer to sell." Mr. Ford knev
exactly what he wanted, ordered
it, paid cash in full for it and never
asked for a discount or any spE
cial treatment. He was treated
exactly like any other customer
and that's the way he wanted it.
"Mr. Ford was a friendly, casuz
person and strangers responded
quickly to his easy approach. Eli2
abeth Bailey, daughter of the mil
ister of Community Churcl
recalled her first meeting with M
Ford. She was seated in the bac
yard of the manse with her hai

when a stranger wandered int
the yard, inspecting shrubs an
grasses. They had a pleasant cor

they were invited for dinner an
learned that she had already mi

"Mr. Ford made friends easi
and seemed to have a special raj
port with children, who respond
ed immediately to his appearance
at their games or small gathering
along the streets or vacant lots i

Early residents recall man
instances of Ford's concern fo
children and his enjoyment c
them.
"Don Bush remembers whe
a group of boys were roller ska

too uncommon in LaBelle at thE
time. Mr. Ford came along an
watched the sport and began
conversation. He admired th
boys' skating skills, said he ha
skated as a youngster and wishe
he could skate again. One la
promptly removed his own skate
and offered them to Mr. For<
With a little adjustment, the

Ford took the hand of the near
boy Bush himself and wit
him, skated the full length of th
sidewalk and back.
"Another resident recalls M

Thinking about Mom


By Daniel Shube
It's Mother's Day. My mom
doesn't play golf. She doesn't live
in Florida. I just read a new book,
"Chicken Soup for the Women's
Golfer's Soul" authored/compiled
by Jack Canfield, Mark Victor
Hansen, Patty Aubery and
Matthew E Adams.
You might think I'm getting in
touch with my feminine side.
Truth be told, it has been a long
time since I've failed to get off the
tee past the red markers. I sup-
posed I've been called "Alice" a
few times for leaving putts short!
Actually, this book is very
inspiring, even if you are not a
woman, or for that matter, a golfer.
In the tradition of this success-
ful series, you will find essays writ-
ten by recognizable names as well
as quite possible someone who
played in a recent foursome at
your local club.
Some of the famous golfers
who contributed include. Patty
Sheehan, Jane Blalock and my
favorite, Natalie Gulbis.
Some of the topics (which: are

used as chapters) include: "Golf is
a Beautiful Walk," "Unforgettable
Moments, Joy and Sorrow" (no, I
didn't cry reading this chapter)
and "More Than a Game."
So, if you haven't already pur-
chased a Mother's Day gift for your
mom or wife, this would make an
excellent last minute choice. You
guys might like reading it too, just
don't tell the guys in your four-
some. If you are like me, they
already tease you enough! Also,

Plan for animals evacuation Livestock


TALLAHASSEE -Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson is
encouraging people to plan ahead
for their animals in the event of an
evacuation. Numerous communi-
ties have had to evacuate and
Bronson says citizens should not
wait until the order to evacuate
comes to think about how they
are/going to deal with pets and
other animals.
Bronson's Division of Animal
Industry website
httpV//www.doacs.state.fl.us/ai (cli
ck on "Emergency Management")
provides extensive information for
owners of large and small animals
who may be in harms way. The
website has information on disas-
ter preparedness for animals,
emergency animal sheltering,
emergency housing for horses, a
list of hotels that accept pets and a
link to websites that list pet friend-
ly motels.
"Wildfires erupt very quickly
and often without warning and
people who wait until too late to


prepare may end up leaving their
animals unattended or refuse to
heed evacuation orders," Bronson
said. "With just a little planning,
people can ensure their animals,
large and small do not become
victims of these fires." "People
need to understand that many
emergency shelters are not able to
accept pets so advance planning is
imperative."
Pets and small animal safety
Keep ID tags and vaccina-
tions up to date. ,
When evacuating, bring
proper identification and health
papers with you. "
Prepare a pe survival kit,
including food for tvo weeks, a
manual can opener, medications,
a pet carrier, and bedding. If evac-
uated, properly secure your ani-
mals..
If you plan to board a pet,
make written arrangements in
advance.
Contact hotels and motels
along your evacuation route to
check policies on accepting pets


and keep the list handy.
Horses and Livestock
Keep vaccinations and other
health requirements up to date.
If possible, make arrange-
ments in advance for evacuation
of horses. Know where you can
take your horses for shelter along
your evacuation route.
Make sure your horse trailer
is "ready to go" or other transport
arrangements are prepared well
in advance.
Carry your vaccination
record and health papers with you
as well as handling equipment.
Please have a point of destina-
tion before departure and be sure
to evacuate as soon as possible to
avoid traffic delays.
."It is better for everyone if ani-
mal owners know where they can
take their pets before they need to
evacuate," Bronson said. "We
have many animals still separated
from their owners as a result of
disasters and we need to take
steps to prevent this'from happen-
ing."


Lawmakers pass new farm bills


Tallahassee The 2007 ses-
sion of the Florida Legislature
resulted in passage of much-
needed legislation that will help
the state's farmers and ranchers
continue to operate, according to
Florida Farm Bureau, the state's
largest general interest agricultur-
al organization.
"We appreciate the. support
agriculture received from our leg-
islators," said FFBF President
John Hoblick. "I also appreciate
the support we received from
hundreds of Farm Bureau mem-
bers who kept in touch with their
senators and representatives
throughout the session."
Bills sent to the governor's
desk will lower sales taxes for
agricultural producers, protect
rural landowners from trespass
liability and destruction of fences,
and support development of agri-
tourism and fund research ito
alternative energy sources.
Lawmakers broadened the
sales tax exemption for electricity
used on farms to encompass all
aspects, direct and indirect, of
production and processing of
agricultural products on farms.
The exemption now also applies
to other agriculture-related activi-
ties performed on farm, including
in offices and barns. Primary
sponsors of the legislation were
Rep. Bryan Nelson, R-Apopka
and Sen. Jeff Atwater, R-North
Palm Beach.
Agritourism stands to get a
boost from a measure that per-
mits the Department of Agricul-

Brief

Cracker barbecue
and dance planned
HIGHLANDS COUNTY -- There
will be a Cracker barbecue at the
historic Pearce homestead, locat-
ed in eastern Highlands County at
the corner of U.S. 98 and C.R. 721,
on Saturday, May 19, from 3 until
7 p.m.
Storyteller Judge Nelson E.
Bailey will perform from 3:30
until 4:30 p.m. He will be fol-
lowed by the barbecue dinner
and The Jerry Mincey Band.
Admission is $25 per person,,
or $50 per couple. Reservations
are required.
To register, contact Loisa Ker-
win by phone at (863) 462-0025;
or, by e-mail at

ture and Consumer Services to
provide marketing advice, expert-
ise, support and product develop-
ment. Under that measure the
department would also assist
local governments, economic
development organizations, the
Florida Commission on Tourism
and like organizations with pro-
moting agritourism. It also directs
local governments and agricultur-
al representatives to meet regard-
ing regulatory streamlining,
incentives and the benefits of agri-
tourism to local economies.
Trespassing, a perennial thorn
in the side for rural landowners
was also addressed in the agri-
tourism bill. Under the measure
sent to the governor, a trespasser
cannot sue an agricultural
landowner for damages related to
the trespasser's unlawful con-
duct. Landowners can now post
property by painting "No Tres-
passing" in letters two inches high
and one inch wide in an interna-
tional orange color on posts or
trees no more than 500 feet apart.


(Entrances and exits must still be
marked with conventional signs.)
The criminal penalty for intention-
ally damaging or removing "no
trespassing" signs is increased to
a first degree misdemeanor and
the penalty for second or subse-
quent occurrences of breaking or
injuring fences is boosted to a
third degree felony.
The University of Florida/IFAS
will receive $20 million for an
alternative energy research facility
and the Florida Department of
Agriculture was budgeted $26
million for Farm to Fuel grants
program.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 144,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, it is an independent,
non-profit agricultural organiza-
tion. More information about
Florida Farm Bureau is available
on the organization's Web site,

UF Researchers test natural predators


By: Chuck Woods
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- In a prime
example of how an exotic insect-
can wreak havoc on landscape
plants and cause millions of dol-
lars in damage, the Asian cycad
scale has invaded South Florida
and quickly spread throughout
the state.
The tiny pest's only host is the
cycad also called a sago palm
- and experts say the scale is
probably the single most impor-
tant threat to wild cycad popula-
tions around the world.
Its rapid spread in Florida sug-
gests that the insect has few effec-
tive natural enemies in the state,
said Catharine Mannion, an assis-
tant professor of ornamental
entomology at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"The insect began attacking
the plants in South Florida in the
mid-1990s, when the pest was
accidentally introduced to the
Miami area from Southeast Asia,"
she said. "Within a few years, 80
percent of the king and queen
sago palms in South Florida were
killed, and the pest has killed
almost half of the king and queen
sago palms in Central Florida. The
cycad nursery industry has been
devastated, with economic losses
in the millions."
She said two commonly
grown cycads king and queen
sagos are susceptible to attack
by the Asian cycad scale. An infes-
tation can coat a medium-sized
sago within months and kill it
within a year.
"In areas with high infesta-
tions, management of the pest

entomology, examines the
severity of an Asian cycad
scale infestation on a sago
palm at UF's Tropical
Research and Education
Center in Homestead on Jan.
17.
will be a continuous and long-
term effort," Ms. Mannion said. "If
infested cycads go unmanaged,
the scale will not only kill the
cycad but can be spread to other
cycads."
Researchers at UF's Tropical
Research and Education Center in
Homestead have introduced two
natural enemies to help combat
this pest, but they are not com-
pletely effective. The insects were
imported from Thailand and


released in South Florida in 1997
and 1998.,
The natural enemies are a
predaceous beetle and a parasitic
, wasp. The adult beetle feeds pri-
marily on adult female scale. The
beetle lays her eggs among the
scale eggs underneath the scale
armor covering. After hatching,
the beetle larva feeds on all stages
of the scale. The wasp attacks and
kills female scale by laying its egg
inside the female scale where the
developing wasp larva feeds and
grows.
"Both of these natural enemies
have become established in many
areas of South Florida and con-
tribute to the control of the scale,"
said Ms. Mannion, who is based at
UF's Homestead center. "Howev-
er, because of the explosive
nature of the scale insect, neither
one of these natural enemies can
provide complete control."
Ronald Cave, an assistant pro-
fessor of entomology at UF's Indi-
an River Research and Education
Center in Fort Pierce, recently
went to China and Vietnam to
identify parasitoids that could be
imported and released in Florida.
'lo types of parasitic wasps were
taken to quarantine facilities in
Gainesville and Fort Pierce, where
methods are being developed to
rear the wasps for research pur-
poses.
Ms. Mannion is also evaluating
another potential predatory bee-
tle that was introduced into
Hawaii many years ago for con-
trol of other armored-scale
insects and reportedly provides
some control of the Asian cycad
scale. Small, isolated populations
have been found in Florida, but


early indications are that it may -
not be contributing much to the t
control of this pest, she said.
Horticultural oils and/or insec-
ttfcies can- be used to manage
Asian cycad scale, she said. Thor-
ough coverage of the plant is
extremely important when apply-
ing a spray and repeat applica- A l
tions may be necessary, Ms. Man- .,,
nion said.
