MOSSY POND FIRE,


Family of

three spots

blaze, then

saves home
BY KELLI PEACOCK
News Editor
A Mossy Pond family
saved a neighbor's home
from destruction Friday
afternoon after a trash fire
got out of control and began
spreading.
According to Rolf
Myrhammar, Chief of the
Mossy Pond, Volunteer Fire
Department, Rene and Mary
Solano, along with their son,.
Alex, were driving down
Hwy. 274 when they spotted
a grass fire spreading fast
and furiously toward a
mobile home. "They called
911, then went onto the
property and they flat saved
those people's trailer,"
Myrhammar tells The County
Record.
Utilizing a garden hose,
the Solanos managed to
steer the blaze around the
mobile home. 'The flames
went 15 to 20 feet into the
pine trees," says
Myrhammar. "It went around
the trailer and burnt the
trees and property all the
way to 274. It probably
burned about two acres."
Fortunately. no one was
inside the home at the time,
but M\Thammar iss certain
there wouldn't be a home
any longer had the Solanos
Snot stepped in when they
did. "By the time [the fire
department] would have got-
ten there, the trailer would
have been gone. The Solanos
did an excellent job stopping
that fire I was impressed."
M\Thammar says the res-
idents had apparently been
burning trash and believed it
had extinguished. However,
the fire picked back up and
spread. "It. was extra dry
conditions that day and the
wind just caught it," he
points out."

42-pound striped bass from
the Apalachicola River. His
fish, however, was 1/4-

Alphonso Barnes in
December 1993 in the same
section of the Apalachicola.
Sanford's fish measured
39-7/8 inches in length and

Monday night and lost 6-0.


Kirkpatrick was 1 for 3.
S"We had three errors in the

better than us," Coach
Faurot points out. "Their
overall record is 15-2."
The tournament continued
Friday night with Altha facing
the number six ranked
Aucilla 'Christian Warriors
and defeating them, 8-3.
"It was a great game and
\we played good." says an
ecstatic Coach Faurot. "We
made one error in the game
and had 12 hits to Aucilla's
two."


"But we played a great game." Kirkpatrick was the win-

Ducks More Than
They're Quacked Up To
Be
Well, I hope all you
turkey hunters in th'e
South Hunting Zone took a
nice bird or two this year
as your season is coming
to a close. For those of us
in the rest of the state, we
'sul hav\' until April 23 to
$IPf a good long-beard.
tiat,.er,- spring,,gobbler
season, there's really not
much hunting to talk
about, so I'd like to tell you
about another bird one
that needs our help.
As Easter approaches,
many parents buy. mallard
ducklings for their chil-
dren. We've done that for
generations, but conse-
quences have caught up
with us.
These ducks can live 10
years. They might make
nice pets while .they are
still small enough to fit in
your hand. but when they
become full-grown and the
novelty wears off, people
often grow tired of caring
for them and decide to
turn them loose. Most
don't realize that is against
the law, and these mal-
lards pose a serious threat
to Florida's native wildlife.
Besides making it illegal
to release mallards,
Florida law also requires
anyone possessing, buying
or selling mallards to have
a permit from the FWC.
and the birds must be kept
in a cage as long as they
live.
One reason for this rule
is that domesticated ducks
can transmit diseases and
compete with native
wildlife for food and habi-
tat. It's actually illegal to
release any animal into the
wild if it poses a disease
hazard. But the most
important reason is releas-
ing domesticated mallards
into the wild, threatens the
existence of the Florida
mottled duck.
The Florida mottled
duck. also called the
Florida duck, is a unique
subspecies found only in
peninsular Florida. It
keeps to a small home
,range in inland and
coastal wetland ecosys-
tems.
To hunters, the mottled
duck is'a highly prized
:'ganie bird found in many
.ponds. lakes, rivers,
marshes and canals in
central and .south Florida.
They are large ducks,
brownish in color, with
,both sexes being, darker
than a mallard but slightlyy
lighter than a black duck.
This species is one of
.only a few nonmigratory
"ducks in North America.
"The mottled duck spends
-its" entire life within


Florida.
In the spring, wild mal-
lards fly north to breed
and are not present when
the mottled duck mating
season begins. On the
other hand, store-bought
mallards don't migrate and
instead become estab-
lished, year-round resi-
dents of Florida. These
domesticated mallards
crossbreed with mottled
ducks and produce hybrid
offspring. The offspring
are fertile, which com-
pounds the situation.
Each year, there are fewer
purebred mottled ducks
left, and the trend is driv-
ing the Florida mottled
duck toward extinction.
Communities around
the globe have seen similar
problems. In New
Zealand. domesticated
mallards, released to pro-
vide hunting stock, have
devastated the local grey
duck populations. Now,
95 percent of the grey
ducks in New Zealand are
hybrids.
The Hawaiian duck is
another example. This
endangered bird has been
all but completely
hybridized and may be
genetically intact only on
the island of Kaual.
Meller's duck in
Madagascar is yet another
example.
The fate of the Florida
mottled duck could be
similar as: its population is
relatively small, estimated
at only. 30,000-40.000
breeding birds. FWC biol-
ogists say between 7 and
12 percent of the state's
mottled ducks are showing
genetic evidence of
hybridization.
Floridians purchase
more than 12.000 mal-
lards a year. and many of
them make their way into
nearby waters. Given
these alarming figures,
plus the fact the -popula-
tion of mottled ducks is
small, it wouldn't take long
for the Florida mottled
duck to disappear.
The solution starts with
not buying your child a
mallard duck for Easter.
To go a step further,
don't feed or shelter
domesticated mallards;
help spread the word: and
consider requesting per-
mits to remove any that
may live on your property.
For more information
on protecting Florida's
mottled duck or to obtain
permits for removing
domesticated mallards,
contact one of the FWC's
waterfowl offices at (850)
488-5878 or (321) 726-
2862. or visit the mottled
duck. Web site at

get first at one, but they
might only be fourth at
another...it goes by their
totals."
The state meet has been
changed from Apr. 22 to Apr.
21 at Sante Fe Community
College in Gainesville.

Jury duty scam-


claiming to be a jury coordi-
nator who informs the person
being called that a warrant
has been issued for his or her
arrest as a result of the per-
son's failure to appear for
jury duty. When the intend-
ed victim protests and
reports that they've never
received a summons to report
for jury duty, they are asked
for a Social Security number,
a date of birth and sometimes
even a bank account number.
Providing that information
enables the scam artist to
clean out the consumer's
bank account and open up
other accounts, obtain credit


cards and establish other
lines of credit in the victim's
name, Bronson warned.
"This is a particularly
insidious fraud because most
people take jury duty seri-
ously and naturally would
want to clear up any misun-
derstanding about whether
they failed to show up for it
as quickly as possible," the
Commissioner said.
"People need to always
remember to avoid giving any
personal or financial infor-
mation over the telephone to
anyone whose identity they
have not verified," Bronson
said.

Submitting CRP Offers
Land that is not currently
enrolled in CRP may be
offered for enrollment during
CRP sign-up 33. In addition,
CRP participants with con-
tracts expiring on September
30, 2006, may submit offers.
Eligible Producers
To be eligible for CRP
enrollment, a producer must
have owned or operated the
land for at least 12 months
prior to the end of the CRP
sign-up period, unless:
The new owner acquired
the land due to the previous
owner's death;
The ownership change
occurred due to foreclosure
where the owner exercised a
timely right or redemption in
accordance with state law; or
The circumstances of the
acquisition present adequate
assurance to FSA that the
new owner did not acquire
the land for the purpose of
placing it in CRP.
Eligible Land
To be eligible for place-
ment in CRP, land must be
either:
Cropland (including field
margins) that is planted or
considered planted to an
agricultural commodity four


of the previous six crop years
from 1996 to 2001, and
which is physically and legal-
ly capable of being planted in
a normal manner to an agri-
cultural commodity.
Additional Requirements
Cropland must meet one
of the following criteria:
Have a weighted average
erosion index of 8 or higher;
Be expiring CRP acreage;
Be located in a national
or state CRP conservation
priority area.
Ranking CRP Offers
FSA will rank offers for
CRP sign-up 33 according to
the Environmental Benefits
Index (EBI).
FSA ranks each eligible
offer in comparison to all
other offers and selects from
that ranking. After the sign-
up ends, FSA will decide
where to make the EBI cutoff.
Those who have met previous
sign-up EBI thresholds are
not guaranteed a contract
under this sign-up.
Offers accepted under this
sign-up will become effective
Oct. 1, 2006. For more infor-
mation, contact the USDA-
FSA office at 674-8388 Ext. 2
or visit the USDA Web sites at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov.
