closed to navigation due to low
water levels.
This South Florida Water.

water levels have returned to
safe operating levels.
Low water levels inside the

Keeping backyard

chickens isn't difficult


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
If you decide to keep backyard
chickens in Florida, you are in good
company. Chickens and. their eggs
were an important part of pioneer
family's diets. If you have a number
of hens, it is likely you will have
eggs most days. Before refrigeration
thai meant fresh food every day.
Keeping chickens isn't difficult.
When kept in dirty, crowded
conditions disease can be a
problem and that is normal with
any animal.
Most feed store carries them
from time to time. Just ask them
when their next shipment is. You
will want to buy your chickens
sexed, which will guarantee (as
nearly as possible) that you will
have hens to give eggs and not


50 percent roosters. Roosters or
a rooster can be had, if you want
to breed your own replacement
chickens, but let's say you don't.
You want "sexed" chickens. This
means the chickens have been
verified as hens. Sexed chickens
cost more, but that is the price of
not having a rooster crowing on
bright, moon lit nights or having to
keep him in a dark coop!
You can, of course eat any
"extras" and there are books and
online sources to explain how the
deed is done.
Baby chicks need to be warm
and clean, have food and above
all, water. Baby chicks will not live
long without those. Most local feed
stores will carry baby chicks, and
the starter feed they require for a
See Chickens Page 2


INI/MaryAnn Morris
These growing chicks can live outdoors in this unused garden shed with a homemade
nest box made by the young man of the family and an old milk crate lined with hay for
warmth.

very small price.
Before you bring them home,
decide where you will keep
them. It should be as predator-
proof and you can make it and
big enough to hold the growing
chicks, their food and water with
room to spare. Libraries generally
have books on raising chickens
or can get books for you.
When grown, chickens
are better than pigs for eating
anything. Get a pretty bowl or
container of some sort, set it next
to your kitchen sink and throw
all your food scraps into it. Then
feed these scraps to the chickens.
Empty the container daily so as
not to breed germs. Dump the
food scraps into an old metal
cake pan or the like that you leave
in the chicken run. This way the
scraps are kept off the ground


and droppings. You can then
easily dispose of any food that
the chickens didn't eat that was
left in the pan. You will find that
chickens hardly refuse anything.
It gives them food variety, too,
and you will feel like you are
not wasting food but recycling
it. Chickens are the ultimate
omnivores. They love fresh grass
clippings; be sure to put your
garden clippings into the chicken
pen if they don't "free range".
Some day, when they are
grown, if they free-range, you
may come across one or more
of then lying in the dirt, looking
rather dead. They are quite
alive. Chickens like to take dust
baths to lie and fluff around in
dust, which helps keep bugs out
of their feathers. It is a shock to
see them lying there dirty and
disheveled if you don't know
what they are doing!

Public comment sought on distribution of bird feathers


The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service is seeking public comment
on a proposal to develop
regulations that would allow
Native Americans to obtain parts
and feathers from migratory birds
other than eagles for religious or
spiritual use. The Notice of Intent
to prepare an Environmental
Assessment (EA) is published in
the June 15 Federal Register.
The EA would assess potential
impacts on the natural and
human environment that might
result from different alternatives
for legalizing the acquisition of
feathers and parts other than those
from eagles, including impacts
to Native American culture and
religion. Currently, no federal
regulations govern the acquisition
of migratory bird parts by Native
Americans.
Between 1990 and 1999,
the Fish and Wildlife Service's
National Eagle Repository
distributed migratory bird parts
and feathers from birds (excluding
eagles) to enrolled members
of federally recognized Native
American tribes.
In 1999, the Service suspended
distribution of non-eagle feathers
due to administrative resource
constraints. Since that time, the
Service has generally not issued
permits to enrolled tribal members
for the use of non-eagle feathers in
religious and cultural ceremonies.
The Service regularly receives
inquiries regarding the availability
of migratory bird parts and
feathers to Native Americans for
religious and cultural use. The
Service acknowledges the value of
this resource in preserving Native
American religion and culture and
seeks input on nine topics:
The sources of the parts and
feathers that would be made
available;
Criteria or conditions that
should be established for
eligibility;
How different means of legal
acquisition may affect tribes;
How Native American
tribes could be affected if such
authorization is extended to others
in addition to enrolled members
of federally recognized tribes;
The extent of Native American
demand for such feathers and
parts;
Whether the types of feathers
being requested should be limited
to those historically significant to
the tribes acquiring them;
Which species of migratory
birds are most valuable for Native
American religious/spiritual
purposes;
Potential impacts to migratory
bird populations and other
wildlife; and
Other concerns about this


initiative.


The Service does not
expect to authorize any means
of distribution of non-eagle
feathers and parts that would
affect migratory bird or wildlife
populations or impact wildlife
habitat, and does not anticipate
take from the wild of live birds
through hunting or any other


method.


Copies of the Notice of Intent
may be found on the Service's
Web site at http://www.fws.
gov/midwest/MidwestBird, or
obtained by writing: Andrea Kirk,
Permits Administrator, USFWS
Migratory Bird Permits, 1 Federal
Drive, Fort Snelling, MN 55111, or

Snow Job
Citizens of the county, despite
the pleas of little old ladies
on fixed incomes and elderly
gentlemen of quiet desperation,
the county commissioners
unanimously voted to raise the
county gas tax a whopping 86
percent (from 7 cents to 12 cents)
as of Jan. 1,2008.
After all the protest and
subsequent bantering, we have


our tax.
I could not find one person
at the meeting in favor of this tax
increase and especially the timing
of it, when gasoline prices are at
an all-time high. That did not stop
our intrepid elected officials from
approving the measure.
If you had attended the
meeting, you could have seen
the new trend in representative
government -- government of the
government, by the government

and for the government. Forget of
the people, by the people and for
the people. Elected officials follow
their own agenda despite the will
of the people.
If only one commissioner had
voted no or abstained, I would
have said, "Hallelujah, there is
hope!" Itwas not to be.
Our commissioners were
going to have that tax no matter
who it hurts. The county attorney
was so smooth they would have


voted to give us typhoid fever if he
asked them.
Just in case you want to know
where the tax money will be used,
try going to Helen Waite.
The strange part of it is I walked
away laughing at the irony. We
just got a snow job of the first
magnitude and we don't have any
snow removal equipment -- until
the next election that is.

Who should win the US Open? s

By Daniel Shube | a different game than the one it looks for the pros on television,
played during a non-major week. onlyto find out how it really is not Community Links Individual Voices.
As I write this column, the US I Does that make it bad? that easy to la.


Open has just concluded round
one. Many players have walked
off the course shaking their heads.
Nick Dougherty shot a two under
par 68 to hold a one-shot lead,
but a mere four players stood at
par or better.
With scores like these, Oak-
mont was considered to not be
playing very tough! A little rain
fell early, softening the course up.
Just wait until the weekend when
Oakmont is at its best!
Some questions you might
want to consider are: Does the
USGA need to make our national
title such a difficult test? Is it a fair
competition when conditions are

so difficult? Should the winner of
the US Open finish at over par?
Let's face it, when the greens
are lightning fast, the rough is
gnarly and the fairways are thin-
ner than Nicole Ritchie, this is


Personally, I would not want to
play on a set-up like the one's the
USGA provide for Open play. As
a matter of fact, I've played some
of the layouts set-up for regular
Tour events and the rough is a bit
more than I care to deal with. Of
course, I don't drive the ball 350
yards and spin my shots back on
the greens.
I do not consider myself a
masochist, yet there is something
about watching the best players
in the world miss a few shots
that makes me feel a little better
about my game. I really believe
that many golf beginners quit the
game due to watching how easy


So, this Father's Day, instead
of struggling to par a few holes
and perhaps grab a birdie, I'll be
glued to my television and cheer-
ing for the golfer who is the last
man standing; the player who
isn't whining that the greens are
too hard, the rough too tall.
Ultimately, I hope that the
course wins and the low score is
over par. One player will still walk
away with the trophy and the
winner's share of the purse. Our
national championship should be
the toughest test. Every player will
play the same course. May the
best of the best win!

Bronson urges people to prepare Livestock Market Report


for potential mosquito explosion


TALLAHASSEE The drought
plaguing Florida has had one
benefit: a significant drop in
the mosquito population that is
usually seen this time of year. But
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson is urging residents to
prepare for that to change. As
soon as the normal rain patterns
return, Florida is likely to see a
mosquito population explosion.
The lack of water has
prevented eggs from hatching,
but mosquito eggs from certain
species can be very resilient, lying
in wait for the next heavy rain for
up to several years. When the wet
weather arrives, all the eggs hatch
at once, creating a huge increase
in the number of pesky pests.
Bronson says people need
to keep that in mind and be
ready for a possible onslaught of
mosquitoes and with them the
potential for mosquito-borne
illnesses.
The Commissioner is urging
horse owners to make sure that
their animals are vaccinated
against two of the diseases -- West
Nile Virus (WNV) and Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
"So far there this year there
have been no reports of human
cases of mosquito-borne illnesses


in Florida and we've had five
EEE cases in horses compared
with a high of 207 cases in 2003,"
Bronson said. "We haven't seen
any West Nile cases either and I
hope with proper protections we
can continue this trend."
In addition to WNV and EEE,
mosquitoes can transmit St. Louis
Encephalitis and malaria.
Floridians and visitors can
protect themselves against
mosquito borne disease by taking
common-sense steps, including:
Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mosquitoes
are most active.
Wear long-sleeved shirts
and pants to cover skin and reduce
the chance of being bitten.
Eliminate standing water
in yards, such as in birdbaths,
kiddie pools, old tires and other
receptacles. Stagnant water is an
excellent breeding ground for
mosquitoes.
Use insect repellent that
contains DEET, which is an
effective repellent.
Horse owners are also urged
to check with their veterinarian to
make sure that their animals have
received current vaccinations
against WNV and EEE, and that
these shots are kept up to date.
"Florida's mosquito control


districts have done a tremendous
job with ongoing monitoring of
mosquito populations and taking
action when necessary," Bronson
said. "But ultimately, it is up to
people to take steps to protect
themselves and their animals from
mosquito-borne diseases."
Across Florida, there are 56
mosquito control districts that
routinely conduct proactive
mosquito surveillance with
specific and effective research.
They have improved methods of
controlling mosquitoes, improved
identification of mosquito species
that transmit disease, established
procedures for the early detection
of new mosquitoes, and
researched environmental factors
that make mosquito disease
outbreaks more likely.
For more information on
mosquito-borne diseases and
prevention, consumers can call the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services at 1-
800-HELP-FLA (435-7352), or
visit the department's web site
at http://www.doacs.state.fl.us.
Information on the subject also is
available at the Florida Department
of Health's web site at http://www.

Summer can mean pests on pets


Summertime means heat,
and with it comes the deluge of
insects that thrive in warmer
weather. A fly swatter and insect
repellant may be the weapons of
choice for humans, but animals
need something more to keep the
threat of insects at bay.
"Fleas, ticks and mosquitoes
are the three most threatening
insects to all pets in Texas,
whether the pets are strictly
indoor, outdoor or both," says
Patty Hug, a registered veterinary
technician at the College of
Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences at Texas A&M University.
Fire ants and bees also
endanger pets, Ms. Hug says, but
when it comes to deciphering
which insect transmits which
disease and how it can be
prevented, a pet owner can get
lost. A list of summer pests:
Mosquitoes transmit
heartworms. When a female
mosquito bites an animal, it
injects larvae that potentially
develop into worms
that live inside the heart.
Fleas cause tapeworms.
When a pet uses its. teeth to
relieve the itch from fleas, the
animal ingests the fleas. When
the fleas are digested, they cause
tapeworms that feed on the
intestinal walls of the animal,
causing anemia. These long,
flat parasites exit through the
feces, looking like moving rice
grains. Fleas are not normally life-
threatening, but they can be if left
untreated, especially with young
animals.
Ticks transmit Lyme disease.
Ticks are common in heavily
wooded areas and can easily
hitch a ride on an animal's coat.
Ms. Hug says that most pets in
these areas are at risk of getting
deer ticks. These insects cause
Lyme disease, and the side effects
in pets are similar to those in


humans, Hug says.
Bees, wasps and fire ants
just plain hurt. Pets can be stung
just like humans, and they have
similar reactions.
"A dog can have anything from
a very mild, localized reaction,
like most people get, all the way
to an anaphylactic reaction-it
is relatively rare, but it's there,"
says Lori Atkins, also a registered
veterinary technician at the
College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences at Texas
A&M University.
Older or debilitated pets are
also at risk because they cannot
move quickly when insects pose
a threat.
"They lay down in an anthill,
then they start getting bit and can't
get away in time," Ms. Atkins says.


To prevent insects from
causing harm to an animal
companion, Ms. Hug advises
taking several steps.
"The number one thing a pet
owner can do for a pet is to take
it to the veterinarian every year,"
says Ms. Hug, "and the second
best thing is to test canine pets for
heartworms."
Asking the veterinarian to
place the pet on heartworm, flea
and tick preventatives is another
important step, Ms. Hug adds.
Several products are available,
such as the tablet, topical
treatment or chewable beef cube
for heartworm prevention. For
fleas, treatment comes in the
topical and tablet form, and for
ticks, topical prevention is most
common.


"The veterinarian is
knowledgeable about which
preventative works in a specific
area, which preventative is more
accepted by pets, and which
preventative owners are most
likely to be compliant with," Hug
says.
"Switching from one
preventative to another is not
recommended at all. In this
process, a missed dose or
application can potentially put the
pet at risk. Ms. Hug adds that it is
also important to treat the house
and yard with child- and pet-safe
insecticides year round.
"Insects proliferate at
an alarming rate, and if left

But with a Total Line of Credit, you're always prepared.

It pays to be ready for anything here in Florida. A Total Line of Credit gives
you total flexibility. Access is instant just write a check. So if a storm blows
in, you're ready. You're also set if you want to move on that new car or boat
or improve your home.
Here's the neat part: with rates as low as Prime minus 0.75% and no closing
costs, you can convert what you borrowed to a fixed rate home'equity loan. As
you repay your loan, your available line of credit goes back up. Pretty smart.


Feelgood about your bank


Unes of Credit subject to credit approval. Annual Percentage Rate is variable and subject to change. MaxImum APR is 18% Actual rate Is dependent upon borrowers credit history To oblian a rate as low as Prime minus
