Bill seeks relief


Lawsuit claims boys
in Marianna and
Okeechobee juvenile
facilities were abused
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A Florida senator has intro-
duced a bill stating that the boys
who were abused and beaten at
state-run reform schools in Mari-
anna and Okeechobee should be
compensated by the state.
Senator Arthenia Joyner, a
Tampa Democrat, filed Senate
Bill 48 (SB-48) Friday, July 31, ask-


ing for relief for those who were
beaten and sexually abused at the
two schools during the 1940s, '50s
and '60s.
St. Petersburg attorney Greg
Hoag said Wednesday, Aug. 5,
that SB-48 is a claims bill and "is
separate and apart" from a class
action lawsuit that has been filed
against several state agencies. Also
named in the suit is Troy Tidwell, a
Marianna man who reportedly ad-
ministered many of the beatings at
the Florida School for Boys (FSB)
in Marianna.
Mr. Hoag said he and other law-
yers are now representing over 400
men who were sent to the schools
and, in many instances, beaten


for FSB
until their clothes became embed-
ded into their flesh. He said some
of the allegations in the complaint
were put into the bill.
"There is no actual (dollar)
amount mentioned because the
numbers (of victims) are growing
daily. So we are reluctant to in-
clude a number right off the bat,"
he said in a phone interview. "The
claims bill is another avenue by
which to approach the state."
State agencies named as defen-
dants in the suit include the Depart-
ment of Agriculture, Department
of Juvenile Justice, Department of
Children and Families and the De-
partment of Corrections. They are


victims
named because they are the suc-
cessors to the state agencies that
operated the two boys schools.
The suit was filed in Pinellas
County in January of this year.
While in these schools, boys
between the ages of 8 and 16 were
beaten, sodomized and some-
times killed.
At the Florida School for Boys
in Okeechobee, which was locate
ed on U.S. 441 N., the suit claims

City of Okeechobee plans Citizens'Day


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Who is the Mayor of Okeecho-
bee? What do city councilmen
do? Do I need a permit to build
a room on my house? These and
many other questions will be an
swered at the upcoming Citizens
Day being planned by Okeecho-
bee City Clerk, Lane Gamotea.
Mrs. Gamotea recently re-
ceived a $500 grant from the Trea-
sure Coast Regional League of
Cities to conduct a Citizens' Day
for city citizens.
Besides the City of Okeecho-
bee, the Treasure Coast Regional
League of Cities is made up of
City of Fellsmere, City of Indian
River Shores, City of Sebastian,
Town of Jupiter Island, Town of
Sewall's Point, City of Stuart, City
of Ft. Pierce, City of Port St. Lucie
and St. Lucie Village.
The grant is part of the league's
"Building Citizenship in the Com-
munity: Back to the Basics," It


was made possible by city coun-
cilman Dowling Watford who is
also treasurer of the league. He
suggested the league use avail
able funds for the grant program.
The City of Port St. Lucie received
a similar grant that was used to
print a booklet to be handed out
to Port St. Lucie citizens. The City
of Sebastian is also planning to
use a grant to fund a citizens day
there.
Mrs. Gamotea said the pur-
pose of the event was to inform
citizens of what the city can do for
them and how they can partici-
pate in city government. She said
her office gets calls that should
have been directed to a county or
state office. Some people still con-

House.
When "taken down"-a term the boys
used that referred to their being taken to The
White House-boys would be told to lay on
an iron bed covered with a 1-inch thick cot-
ton mattress. A similar bed was also used in
Okeechobee.
The boys were then told to bite into a pil-
low, hold onto an iron railing at the head of
the bed and warned not to yell or scream or
their beating with a large leather strap would
continue. In some cases, other boys were
brought in to hold down a boy who was be-
ing beaten.
Some of the boys were sent to these
schools because they had broken the law,

Negron wins

special election
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Three Okeechobee County precincts
were involved in the Tuesday, Aug. 4 special
election for State Senate District 28.
Voters in the three southeastern precincts
that make up the county's portion of District
28 followed the district wide trend and over-
whelmingly voted for Republican Joe Ne-
gron over Democrat Bill Ramos. District 28
consists of all of Martin and parts of Indian
River, Okeechobee, Palm Beach and St. Luc-
ie counties. The special election was caused
by the midterm retirement of Senator Ken
Pruitt. Voter turnout in the county was only
about 11 percent of the registered voters in
the three precincts involved. Of those who
voted in those precincts, 72 percent voted
for Mr. Negron and 28 percent voted for Mr.
Ramos.
Mr. Negron had the endorsement of Sen-
ator Pruitt as well as Govern Charlie Crist.
"I'm grateful for the voter's decision to send
me to the Florida Senate," Mr. Negron said in
a press release. "I am so thankful for every-
one who took part in the campaign-from
the campaign team and volunteers to my
family and friends. I also want to thank my
friend, Ken Pruitt, for his support. Together
we were able to claim victory tonight. Now
that the election is over it's time to get to
work finding solutions for the problems fac-
ing our state."

rigible.'
Mr. Hoag said because of Sen. Joyner's
bill, a door may have been opened to help his
clients.
"I'd like to think so," he said. "We have
the backing of one and hope to have multiple
people on board."
The victims will likely have the backing of
Representative Mike Horner, a Kissimmee Re-
publican whose district includes Okeechobee.
He said in a phone interview on Aug. 5 that if
the bill makes it through legislative committee
he will back it.
"This is a tragic chapter in the state's histo-
ry and something the legislature needs to con-
sider very, very carefully," said Rep. Horner.
In her bill, Sen. Joyner asks that money be
appropriated from the state's general revenue
fund to the Department of Juvenile Justice
for the victims who were abused at the two
schools.

Teen pleads
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A local teenager could
face a maximum penalty
of life in prison after plead-
ing guilty for his part in a
2007 armed robbery of an
Okeechobee business.
Guage John Gonzalez, GuageJohn
16, entered a guilty plea to Gonzalez
Circuit Court Judge Law-
rence Mirman on Monday, Aug. 3, to charg-
es of robbery with a firearm and burglary of
a structure while armed.
No sentencing date has been set.
What remains to be seen is if Gonzalez
will be sentenced as an adult or as a juve-
nile.
"The actual decision to be treated as a
juvenile lies completely with the judge," said
Assistant State Attorney Bernard Romero,


who is prosecuting the case. "The state
treated him as an adult."
If sentenced as an adult, Mr. Romero said
Gonzalez could get anywhere from 10 years
to life.
"If he's treated as a juvenile he could be
committed to the Department of Corrections
until he's 21," Mr. Romero added.
Gonzalez would then be released after
turning 21.
Gonzalez was just 14 when he was ar-
rested for his part in the Aug. 13, 2007,

market, 3235 S.R. 70 W. Also charged in the
case were Juan Meras, now 25, Erica Marie

On June 23, 2008, Gopher entered a plea

no profit, just maintain the system.


Default 401K
I was listening to the radio, and I heard
mention that our current system of opting in
for 401 k contributions may be reconsidered.
In lieu of the old system would follow a new
concept. Default 401k plans for all eligible
workers. Workers would no longer have to
opt into the plan and made contributions,
but rather all of that would be performed by
the company as a default procedure. Now
those who do not wish for this plan could
fill some paperwork out to return to a non
default status. This seems like a wise idea.
Due to the myopic nature of humans
we really don't think in the long term. When
retirement time rolls around, it would be
nice to not have to worry about how much
we have placed into retirement accounts
over the years. No one wants to live their re-
tirement pinching pennies.

Dogs loose
The problem with dogs running loose
just keeps getting worse. The county animal
control needs to drive around the county
early in the mornings and just pick up ev-
ery dog they see loose. People just open the
door and let the dogs out to run, and they
run around tearing up people's garbage and
strewing it everywhere. It is against the law
to let your dog run loose. The law says fence
your yard or keep your dog on a leash. So
how about enforcing the law? A hefty fine
might be what it takes to remind some dog
owners that there are rules.

School supplies
I see the schools are already posting
the supply lists. I hope the teachers remem-
ber that we are all in a tight economy and
they should keep it simple this year and as
inexpensive as possible for the parents. Kids
don't need a bunch of fancy stuff to learn.
Try to keep the required supplies as simple
as you can, please. Also, please don't start
adding items to required supply lists af-
ter school starts because by then the back
to school sales are over and the prices for
school supplies go up. We need to purchase
supplies now while things are on sale.

Law enforcement
I* s it time to eliminate law enforcement
or do we bite the bullet and increase the
millage rate? Neither is good. Which is the
most dangerous?


Sheriff May was quoted in the budget
story as saying the reason we are having so
much violence now is that criminals from
south of the lake are moving into Okeecho
bee, because Belle Glade and Pahokee have
beefed up patrols and put more officers on
the street while Okeechobee has cut back.
By eliminating overtime for the sheriff's de-
partment and not funding more officers, we
are setting ourselves up to be the dumping
ground for every criminal who is forced out
of the surrounding areas. If we don't want
this to happen to our county, we need to
support the sheriff and tell the commission-
ers they must increase funding for law en-
forcement. Better pay a little more than fight
the bad guys as they break into our homes.

Former JROTC instructor
sent to prison
I guess all you people who went on
and on about his innocence, and tarred and
feathered the poor victim, and accused the
administration of not doing their job, now
have nothing to say. Typical, typical.
The instructor should be considered
a sex offender when he gets out of jail. His
superior should have his teaching creden-
tials revoked. I would never want either in a
school ever again.

North Korea pardons
two journalists
The two American journalists jailed in
North Korea have been pardoned. The par
don came after Clinton met with leader Kim
Jong II as well as Laura Ling and Euna Lee
-- the reporters were sentenced in June to
12 years of hard labor after North Korea ac-
cused them of sneaking into the country il-
legally and engaging in "hostile acts."
Perhaps, like Jimmy Carter, Bill Clin
ton will earn a better reputation as a former
president than he did as a president.
That is actually very impressive. We
only just heard about him going over there
yesterday. Clinton really got it done, even
without it being a big media event.
His presidential accomplishments, de
spite an impeachment, left him at 68 per
cent approval at the end of his run. That is
pretty good by most standards. His personal
reputation ... well that's a different story.
Looks like the wrong Clinton was made
Secretary of State.

Letter to the Editor

Restaurant to honor
local slain woman

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A special celebrity server night will be
held Friday, Aug. 7, at the Golden Corral
Restaurant to help the husband of Roberta
'Bobbie' Elizabeth Christensen with the fu-
neral expenses.
Mrs. Christensen, 49, was murdered
Tuesday, July 29. Her body was found in her
singlewide mobile home in the Pine Ridge
Subdivision by her son, Eric Christensen Jr.
Charles Huckreide, owner of the Golden
Corral, said Mrs. Christensen's husband,
Eric, was in New Jersey looking for work
when his wife of 36 years was murdered.
Mrs. Christensen had worked at the restau-
rant as a waitress for five years.
"My girls have volunteered their time,"


Mr. Huckreide said Wednesday. "All of their
tips will go to Bobbie's husband."
Mr. Huckreide, who said hours for the
special day will be from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m.,
indicated that customers are already donat-
ing to help Mr. Christensen.
"The people in Okeechobee are very
compassionate. They're helping us right
now," he said.
Mr. and Mrs. Christensen had three
children -- Eric Jr. and his wife who live in
Okeechobee, and another son and a daugh-
ter who live in New Jersey.
Mrs. Christensen had been planning on
visiting The Garden State while on vacation
later this month.
A neighbor, Dale Glenn Middleton, 36,
has been arrested in connection with Mrs.
Christensen's murder. He is being held in the
Okeechobee County Jail without bond on
charges of first-degree murder, armed bur-
glary of an occupied dwelling, grand theft
and dealing in stolen property.


DetectiveTedVan Deman, oftheOkeecho-
bee County Sheriff's Office (OCSO), said
Mrs. Christensen was found in her bedroom
by Eric Jr. and his wife.
"It appears she was attacked in the kitch-
en area then dragged into the bedroom and
killed," he said.
The detective said it is believed that Mid-
dleton used some type of a knife, although
no weapon has been recovered.
Middleton reporteldy discarded the
weapon and the clothes he was wearing in a
dumpster at a local store, said Detective Van
Deman. Unfortunately, when investigators
went to the dumpster it had already been
emptied.
The detective said Middleton apparently
walked across the street from his mobile
home to Mrs. Christensen's to ask if she
would lend him some money. When she
refused, he allegedly "lost it" and killed her,
Detective Van Deman continued.


Middleton then reportedly took a 42-inch
LCD flat screen television and later sold it for
$200, indicated an arrest report by OCSO
Detective William Maerki, who is the case
officer.
Detective Van Deman said Mrs. Christens-
en "... had told friends that she was afraid of
that guy."
According to Mr. Huckreide, his evening
shift waitress was generous to a fault. He
said she would buy meals for a homeless
couple, then deliver the food personally. She
also opened up her home to help a woman
who had just lost her home.
"She let a young lady with two kids live
with her for almost a year, until she got back
on her feet," he said, adding that she did so
at no charge to the young family.


Shooting reflects dangers of

conservation law enforcement


As I see it

By Rodney L. Barreto, Member
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
If you ask law enforcement officers with
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) about their job, in the
mix of describing what they do, they likely
will say they love the work that they do.
Their work to protect natural resources is
important and meaningful; they want to
contribute to society and make their com-
munity, state and world a better place.
Undeniably, their jobs are unique, re-
warding and adventurous, but there is
also an element of danger. We were all
reminded recently of how dangerous law
enforcement is, especially conservation
law enforcement, after FWC Officer Vann
Street was shot multiple times while in-
vestigating a suspicious situation and at-
tempting to arrest a man on a warrant for
traffic violations.
Officer Streety was on routine patrol-
which is an oxymoron, because by the
very nature of law enforcement it is never
routine. Street was doing what officers
do on patrol; searching for evidence of
crimes or criminals and working to make
the woods, waters, communities and any-
thing in between safe. Hundreds of times,
Officer Streety would have been in a simi-
lar situation-checking out something that
didn't seem quite right. This time, though,
when the gunsmoke cleared, the officer
was seriously wounded and the perpetra-
tor was on the run.
What ensued was a manhunt for the
shooter by many law enforcement agen-
cies. Fortunately, a few days after the


shooting, a Melbourne Beach police officer
caught the suspect as he was breaking into
a vehicle.
While some may imagine the work
of a conservation officer involves sunny
days among butterflies, mellow animals
and happy-to-see-you people, in reality
many days are not so sunny and neither
animals nor people are happy to see them.
Although officers may enjoy their jobs-
nonetheless, it involves risk.
The very nature of conservation law
enforcement is especially dangerous. Con-
servation officers can enforce every law of
the state-not just fish and wildlife laws.
Therefore, when they encounter some-
thing suspicious they don't call it in or walk
away; they investigate it. Conservation of-
ficers are typically by themselves; backup
may be many miles away; and they are
mostly in remote areas in the woods or on
the water. Still, they do the job, because it
needs to be done and they are the type that
gets the job done.
Officer Vann Streety survived. I, on be-
half of the FWC, would like to thank all of
the law enforcement agencies who assist-
ed Vann on the evening he was shot and
assisted in the search for the shooter. We
would also like to thank the paramedics,
the hospital and other medical person-
nel who kept Vann with us. He is a fine
man, and we would have hated to lose
him. Equally appreciated were the many
agencies, private and non-profit organiza-
tions who contributed to a reward towards
finding the perpetrator. Last, but not least,
thanks to all of you who had kind words,
thoughts and prayers for Vann.

Restaurant to honor



local slain woman


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A special celebrity server night will be held
Friday, Aug. 7, at the Golden Corral Restaurant
to help the husband of Roberta 'Bobbie' Eliza-
beth Christensen with the funeral expenses.

"It could have been ugly."
That's the opinion of City Assistant
Fire Chief Bill Douglas after his crews
put out an attic fire at 1020 S.W. Sev-
enth Avenue Monday night.
A fire apparently had started due to
some faulty wiring in the attic of the
home, and might have smoldered for
at least two days, Chief Douglas not-
ed.
He said firemen found two burned
wires in the attic of the home.
Some $50,000 in property damage
was estimated, Chief Douglas said.
He said firemen had to pull down
the ceiling and some insulation. He
noted there was other damage as well
to the structure. A 20 by 15 foot area of


insulation was removed.
"There was a lot of smoke in the
entire house," Chief Douglas added.
No one was injured in the blaze re-
ported just after 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 3.
City firemen spent five hours on the
scene. They sent two units and six fire-
men and volunteers.
County Fire Rescue provided mu-
tual aid with five units and 12 firemen
working on the scene for about 90
minutes.
The fire report said smoke was
coming from the eaves of the structure
as firemen arrived. Two firefighters en-
tered the attic, and used extinguishers
to put out the hot spots.

City council reluctantly


agrees to EMS assessment


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
After spending almost an hour Tuesday
evening Aug. 4 discussing what they didn't
like about the county's proposed EMS as-
sessment, the Okeechobee City Council vot-
ed to participate in the assessment because
they had no other choice.
"This is probably one of the toughest de-
cisions we've had to make," stated Council-
man Dowling Watford. He said that EMS is
an "absolutely essential" service a govern-
ment should provide for its citizens.
Councilman Watford expressed concern
about the short time frame and the fact that
the city wasn't included sooner so they could
have looked at other options.
"I do not agree with the methodology,"
Mr. Watford asserted. "I still believe this is a
people, not a property issue. I do not believe
the current assessment is fair."
He also expressed the opinion that
churches should be exempt. The council-
man said he was against the assessment but
the city has to have ambulance service.
"Sometimes we have to vote for things
we don't like," Mr. Watford said. "The fact is
we have no say."
Mr. Watford asked city administrator
Brian Whitehall if other options have been
considered. Mr. Whitehall replied that there
has not been enough time.
Consultant Lee Evett, who devised the
assessment methodology and set the rate
schedule, has spoken at various meetings
about the necessity that an assessment
methodology be able to withstand a court
challenge.
Mr. Watford asked him if this particular
system had been challenged.
Mr. Evett replied that it has not be chal-
lenged in court.
"I would encourage the business section
and the churches to challenge it," Mr. Wat-
ford replied.
Councilman Clayton Williams expressed
concern that in five years the $74 assess-
ment for residential property owners could
go up to $99, an increase of one third. He


suggested putting a cap on increases similar
to the cap on homestead exemptions.
Councilman Lowery Markham noted that
nothing has been factored in for new houses
being built. He said that if there were a 5 per-
cent increase in housing, it would bring in
$60,000 more in assessments.
Mr. Evett noted that a 5 percent increase
of the county's 12,000 houses would be 600
in a year.
"We're nowhere near putting 600 houses
a year in the county," stated county adminis-
trator Lyndon Bonner.
Mr. Bonner said the county was trying
to find a way to fund an acceptable level of
service. He said if the EMS service was not
funded adequately the level of service would
have to go down. He said that if excess re-
serves were collected from the assessment,
the rate could be reduced in future years.
Mr. Evett stated that the assessment pays
for the availability of EMS service and the
fee charged to ambulance users pays for the
transport.
Mr. Markham was also against assessing
churches.
"I felt like some of our discussions were
not considered enough," said Mr. Markham.
He added that if there were any other option
he would not agree to the assessment.
Mayor Jim Kirk also expressed his dis-
pleasure of assessing churches.
"The only option I see is that we partici-
pate," the mayor said.
The motion to participate in the assess-
ment process passed unanimously.
The next step in the process will be a
public meeting at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept.
3 at the Health Department Auditorium,
1728 N.W Ninth Ave.

Former contractor faces fine


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
As painting contractor Clint Ledford
learned, it doesn't always pay to do a fa-
vor for a friend. Sometimes it comes back
to bite you. As a result of a favor he did
for a friend, he ended up being fined $100
by the Okeechobee County Construction
Industry Licensing Board for working
without a license and not displaying his li-
cense number on paperwork as required
by law. The action came at the Aug. 4
board meting.
Mr. Ledford admitted to the board
that his license had expired. He said he


was doing a flooring job to help a friend.
There was no written proposal or con-
tract. After payment was made, the friend
requested a receipt to turn in to the insur-
ance company. The friend than took the
receipt to the licensing board and com-
plained about the quality of Mr. Ledford's
work.
Because of his honesty with the board
and the fact that it was his first offense,
the board fined Mr. Ledford $100.

Pop Warner program to field four teams


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Pop Warner program
has roughly the same amount of kids this
year but league officials have decided to cut
the number of tackle football teams from
five to four so that each team will have more
depth.
League President James Shockley noted
in the past Okeechobee has fielded about 20
players per team, while their opponents on
the coast often have 30 or more. He stated
that put Okeechobee at a competitive disad-
vantage. "We would start the year with 25
players and by the end of the year we'd have
15-20. Hopefully, now we can hold on to the
kids to the end."
To that end, Shockley has employed tu-
tors to help the players maintain their grades
and eligibility to play all season long.
Conditioning for the teams began Mon-
day, and will last for 10 hours or about five
practices. The teams go into pads next week
in anticipation of a huge jamboree here in
Okeechobee at the end of the month, Aug.
29-30.
"It's Ionkin- rnnd this year We have


good numbers, and there are a lot of return-
ing players and a lot of new kids this year,"
he said.
Shockley said hundreds of players and
cheerleaders from Indian River to Palm
Beach County will converge on Okeechobee
for two days of football at the Soccer com
plex across from North Elementary School.
League officials predict the event will pump
thousands into the local economy in terms
of motel and hotel stays, gasoline sales, and
restaurant patrons.
The Tiny Mites will field boys and girls
from five to seven years old. The coaches
this year are Aaron Boone with assistant
coaches Johnny Henry, Lucio Garcia and
Ryan Gabor.
The Mighty Mites will field boys and girls
from seven to nine years old. The head
coach is Corry Rochelle, with assistants Jeff
Whitlock, Heath Everhart and Patrick King.
The Midget team will field boys and girls
from 13-15 years old. The team is coached
by Terrance Pryor. His assistants are Adrian
Minondo, Eric Williams and Jeff Davis.
"I'm very impressed with the kids so far,"
Pryor said. "We've had a good turnout of
kids."


The Pee Wee team will consist of boys
and girls ages 10-12. The Head Coach is
James Shockley with assistants Ernie Coff-
man, Bruce Snell, Lamar Williams, Ed Mun-
do, and Marvin Newkirk.
Pop Warner does have weight and age
limits for each of their divisions to ensure
that each kid matches up with kids their
own size and ability.
Shockley said he encouraged his coaches
to adopt some of the schemes and forma-
tions being used by Myron Jackson and his
staff at OHS so that the kids will become
more familiar with those plays before they
get to high school. Shockley is also one of
Jackson's assistants this season.
The Pop Warner teams will play a nine
game regular season. They will likely have
five home games in addition to the jambo-
ree.
The teams from certain divisions have
also accepted an invitation to play in the
Jacksonville Jaguar bowl in December. The
teams will get to play in an NFL stadium.
Pop Warner will also meet NFL players in
Miami before this year's Super Bowl.

Baseball, softball to have Sports News in Brief


new district opponents


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee will see some familiar
teams but also some strangers when they
take to the baseball and softball diamonds
next spring.
The Florida High School Athletic Asso-
ciation released the realignment of teams in
Class 4A last week.
Okeechobee baseball will be in District


14-4A. The defending champions will still
have to defeat perennial rivals like West-
wood, Jensen Beach, Lincoln Park, and Sun-
coast. However, Glades Central and Forest
Hill is gone replaced by Boynton Beach, and
Fort Pierce Central.
The girls softball will play the same
teams and will be in District 14-4A as well.
Suncoast, and Jensen Beach will be the
top competition. Suncoast won the district
championship in 2009.

How does your garden grow?


Buddha Belly, Cow Killers
and Leafy Cigars

By Dan Culbert, Extension Horti-
culture Agent
UF/IFAS Okeechobee Extension Office
Bush with a Belly
I love the garden section of the newspa-
per... great stuff for me, the Florida garden-
er who is from the north, who plants native
plants. It is a learning process but I enjoy
every minute of it! Here's my question: I
planted this as a baby and it has blooms
like papaya but the leaf is different. It fruits
like the male papaya ... it is a great little
tree, only about 1.5years old. How talldoes
it get and can you eat the fruit? Do I need
a mate to make it fruit like the papaya?
Thanks, Sandy D.
Sandy: Your plant is called a Buddha Belly
Plant, a species of
Jatropha which
has been in the
news recently. Jat-
ropha podagrica is
also called Goutys-
talk Nettlespurge.
With small pretty
clusters of orange-red flowers, it is good for
year round eye-candy and will attract but-
terflies and hum- ,
mingbirds. The
seeds are explo-
sively expelled,
and seedlings
might be found
some distance
from the parent
plant. For this reason, we do not recom-
mend growing it anywhere near a natural
area, so as not
to introduce this
plant.
This plant t
has an interest-
ing growth habit,
slowly growing
to 4 feet tall and
forms a swollen trunk (the Buddha Belly or
"gouty stalk"). In Central America it occurs
naturally in arid environments. This makes it
quite adapted to our climate and sandy soils,
not needing any supplemental watering. We
have found this plant at home in both full
sun and full shade situations.
Like the other Jatrophas it is a mem-
ber of the Euphorbia plant family. Many of
these are poisonous, which is why they are
treated with caution around curious grazing
kids and critters. This plant family includes
poinsettia, and castor bean; both of whose
toxicity is well-known. Therefore it is safe
to assume the characteristic white latex sap
should best be avoided.
Other introduced Jatrophas found in our
area include the Coral Plant, Peregrina, and
Psychic Nut (J. cucuras), which is being
looked as a commercial biodesiel seed oil
crop. Knowing this is a Jatropha will elimi-
nate the confusion between it and "Buddha
Belly Bamboo," which is not related to your
plant.


Big Hairy Red Ant
I found a big red hairy ant crawl
around my Florida Yard. It is bigger tha
bull ant, and I'm afraid it will have a
worse than fire ants! An old-timer called
cow-killer. What should I do?
From your description I believe you h
uncovered a Velvet Ant. To add to the coi
sion, they are not ants at all they are
tually wasps. There are more than 50 s
cies of these insects found in Florida; all
referred to as "velvet ants" because fen
members of the family lack wings and h
coarse hairs that cover most of their bh
giving them a velvety look.
And they are actually "good bugs,"
they parasitize the larvae or pupae of ot
bees, flies, beetles, moths and other inse
Unlike many other kinds of wasps, they h
solitary habits rather than making sha
nests like other wasps and bees. Males
females look different, but as with other
lated insects, it is only the females that
lay eggs or can sting.
The name "cow-killer" comes from
intense burning that can happen if you do
stung by one of these red and black adi
However, they are not very aggressive, n
their venom very toxic. Honey bee stings
about three times more potent than ave
ant's sting. Most female velvet ants are pr
hard to get excited, and they produce an
dible noise when provoked to warn poi
tial victims of her sting. No control meast
are necessary.
