Questions remain in shooting


By BilFabian -
HARLEM The late-night cel-
eblration of the Brown Sugar Festi-
val on Saturday, May 7, was inter-
rupted by the shooting death of
Stanley Hughley. Despite efforts
from the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office to maintain a visible pres-
ence during the festival, Hughley,
19, was shot on the corner of Flori-
da Avenue and 9th street at
approximately 11 p.m., according
to an HCSO press release.
The all-day festival was in full


swing at the time of the shooting,
during which a "teen dance" was
being held at the Harlem Gym.
The dance, scheduled to continue
until 12:30 a.m., was within walk-
ing distance from the scene of the
shooting.
According to the HCSO report,
Hughley was gunned down after
spending the day with family
members as he was getting into
his vehicle. The crime was
believed by most to have been
committed by multiple assailants,,


who were able to flee the scene on
foot before authorities arrived on
site.
According to relatives, Hughley
was shot and then robbed by the
attackers, who stole the victim's
personal effects, including a gold
chain necklace, which some spec-
ulate to have been a motive in the
shooting.
The victim was a resident of Ft.
Lauderdale, and was visiting fami-
ly members, including two sisters
who were with Hughley at the

Clewiston High students graduate


Clewiston High School hon-
ored its graduating class of
2005 in a ceremony on Friday
night, May 20, 2005 at Cane
Field.
With a class of over 240
graduates, the ceremony
included members of the
Hendry County School Board,
including Assistant Stperinte n-
dent Mr. Gordon Swaggerty,
who handed out the diplomas.
The valedictorian and salutato-
rian were Matthew Parantha
and Michael Ashton. Weather
was cooperative, and the event
was concluded by an impres-
sive fireworks display as
friends and family greeted the
newly graduated class of 2005.
Emotions ran the gauntlet
as mild smiles wore sweetly on
the faces of the graduating sen-
iors during the commence-
ment ceremonies and those
smiles quickly grew into wide
grins and outright laughter as
the students were officially dis-
missed from their high school
responsibilities.
Some students were already
reflecting upon what lies
ahead of them, as some pre-
pare for higher education,
some prepare to enter the
workforce, others prepare to

time of the shooting, according to
April White, the victim's aunt.
There was an increased police
presence at the festival, yet the
high-numbered crowd of festival
visitors may have made complete
coverage difficult. HCSO deputies
were reportedly at the scene
immediately after the shooting,
although not soon enough to pur-
sue any suspects.
Also, the time of the shooting
was, after 11 p.m., which some
believe is too late to continue fes-


tivities, which were scheduled to
end at2 a.m.
" Regardless, Harlem residents
believed more could have been
done. White expressed frustration
concerning the circumstances of
the robbery and shooting.
"I'm very upset about the
police representation during the
festival there were very few offi-
cers present at the time, and they
know this (festival) happens every

success and members of the
Harlem Academy Alumni
Association are not only
expressing their sincere thanks

huge success, but there was
much more on the line for
some local students.

Harlem Academy offers schol-
arship opportunities to all local
students and this year was cer-
tainly no exception, as eight


lucky area students will now

tinuing their education.

Honor thy veterans Monday


CLEWISTON As America
continues her struggle against
terrorism abroad, and modern
day warriors face her enemies
on foreign soil, American sons
and daughters turn their atten-
tion to May 31 Memorial
Day.
For. some Americans,
Memorial Day simply became
a day for backyard barbeques
as they languished with the
reality of a three-day weekend,
but as wars rage abroad, with
her children in harm's way,
hopefully Memorial Day will
return its true meaning in hon-
oring America's warriors who
sacrificed all so that her citi-
zens could continue to live in
peace and freedom.
As the Memorial Day


approaches, there will be a
memorial service at 11 a.m. at
the Ridgelawn Cemetery and
is being organized by local
V.F.W. Post 4185.
Members of the V.F.W, all
veteran's of foreign wars, will
be placing American flags on
the tombstones of soldiers
who have passed. TAPS will
echo across the cemetery
lawn, sending its mournful
sound in honor of our fallen
veterans.
Following the Memorial
Day services, refreshments
will be available at the post,
and the post service refresh-
ments are open to the public.
Everyone is encouraged to
attend this special event, or
find a way to honor those vet-


erans who have given the ulti-
mate sacrifice in their own
public or private way.'
As Americans, we are all
possibly guilty of speeding
through our everyday lives,
giving little thought to the free-
doms we loye so dear, In
honor of those who fought
and died to secure those free-
doms, it's not asking much to
turn our full attention for one
day to recognize where those
freedoms came from and the
real meaning of how those
freedoms were earned at the
expense of our countrymen
who honored all of us with
their sacrifice, devotion, and
love of country. J

New research shows the
human brain can have difficulty if
faced with too many new factors
at one time. That's why people
sometimes freeze and die -
when they could have escaped
danger. The theory is that it goes
back to survival. When humans
were prey, staying perfectly still
sometimes protected them from
attack by predatory animals.
Firefighters have known the
importance of preparation for a
long time. That's why they stress
the importance of regular fire
drills.
Planning ahead means you are
ready to handle the emergency.
You don't waste time trying to fig-
ure out what to do. You follow the
plan.
Hurricane planning takes a little
more time than working out fire
escape routes. Hurricanes are
unpredictable, so if your plan is to
evacuate, you need more than one
destination in the "plan," depend-
ing on exactly where the storm's
landfall is protected.
During the last hurricane sea-
son, Floridians learned some
harsh' lessons (such as when a
deputy knocks on your door and
tells you that you must evacuate,
you should take it seriously). But
having survived four deadly storms

Corps of Engineers began another
Level 1 pulse release from Lake
Okeechobee to the St. Lucie Canal
and a Level 3 pulse to the Caloosa-

Engineers makes releases


some of the schedule parameters
to improve the performance of the
regulation schedule. CLA provided
lover volume releases in Zone D to
potentially avoid higher releases
required when the lake is in Zone
C. The deviation will be in effect
through March 15,2007.
Pulse releases are designed to
mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estuar-
ies via the St. Lucie Canal to the
east and the Caloosahatchee River
to the West. They attempt to strike


a balance between the lake's lit-
toral zone and the estuaries. In 10
days, a Level 1 pulse release to the
Caloosahatchee River can lower
the lake 0.07 ft. (average of 1,600
cfs/day), a Level 2 can lower it by
0.10 ft (average of 2,300 cfs/day),
and a Level 3 by 0.13 (average of
3,000 cfs/day). In 10 days, a Level 1
pulse release to the St. Lucie Canal
can lower the lake 0.03ft (average
of 730 cfs/day), a Level 2 can lower
it by 0.04 ft (average of 950


cfs/day), and a Level 3 by 0.05 ft
(average of 1,170 cfs/day).
The lake level, at time of release
was 14.37 feet, which is 0.05 below
the average for this time of year
(based on the period from 1992-
2000), In Zone D of the WSE
(Water Supply Environment) regu-
lation schedule.

rate Communication Office at 904-

to express your opinion or ask a question about public
issues. You are not required to give your name. While we
want you to speak freely, the newspaper reserves the right to
edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.
Less criticizing and more prayer
I'm a subscriber of the newspaper Clewiston and Belle
Glade area. And I've called in several times and nothing's ever
been printed and I was just sitting here reading Speak Out in
my last week's paper. You know, I feel like that a lot of these
people who are speaking out are cancerous people. Talking
about city workers, employees and what have you. If they
would start and stop talking about people and get on their
knees and start praying, there would be a big change. The
gossip that is being put in this paper is ridiculous. Pray for
them, don't criticize 'cause you know God loves every one of
us.
Stolen shopping carts
I wish to express my sympathies to local merchants who
must deal with stolen shopping carts, which end up all over
town. Result, of course, is that responsible shoppers have no
carts to use and everyone,eventually must share the expense
to replace those dumped in a canal or abandoned to rust.
Maybe a surcharge of $5 or so, for the use of the cart, refund-
able upon certified return, would help. I would be willing to
do this. A hex on those who steal a cart and again, my sympa-
thy to the merchants who must deal with this threat.
A dime for your thoughts?
This is ridiculous. Here it is graduation time and there's no
pull out for all our graduating seniors. It was bad enough
when there was nothing here for the Hendry County pageant,
the Miss Sugar, or anything like that. Now we're dishonoring
our seniors too? This is just totally ridiculous. You need to
lower the price of your Clewiston News to a dime instead of
50 cents because nothing is being reported about Clewiston.
It's all the other cities around the lake. Nothing about us.
Nothing about our Junior Miss Hendry County, Miss Hendry
County, nothing about Little Miss Hendry County, or Sugar
and now the graduating seniors are not being honored by the
Clewiston News. I cannot believe this. Lower the price to 10
cents. That's all that paper is worth.


Letter to the Editor


Understand what's
really happening
Dear Editor:
An issue of utmost importance
in America today is that of the pro-
posed Free Trade Area of the
Americas (FTAA). Its passage by
Congress has been given high pri-
ority by the Bush administration.
Yet many Americans may know
little about its' content.
FTAA follows on the heels of
the 1993 North American Free
Trade Agreement (NAFTA) with
Canada and Mexico, which was
to bring about prosperity to the
L.United States. Instead, NAFTA has
resulted in the loss of innumer-
able industries and jobs, especial-
ly in the manufacturing sector.
Furthermore, the United States
also entered into membership in
the World Trade Organization
(WTO), dominating trade deci-
sions, which constitutionally
were to be under the control of
our Congress. Under all of these
agreements, the sovereignty of
the United States of America
stands in jeopardy.
Thus the urgency of the
National Committee of the Consti-
tution Party, assembled on April
29, 2005, to unanimously pass a
resolution opposing the United
States "Entering into a new 34-
member nation Free Trade Area
of the Americas (FTAA) in 2005."
The resolution further declares


the "entering into FTAA would
make our riation subservient to
the governance of this proposed
multi-national government, all in
the misleading guise of economic
prosperity based on "free trade."
Congressman Ron Paul has stat-
ed, "We should never deliver to
any international governing body
the authority to dictate what our
laws should be. And this is pre-
cisely the kind of power that has
been given to the WTO."
From past experience with
these agreements, frowned upon
by our Founders, it is very likely
that our manufacturing base in
America would be further eroded
and innumerable jobs lost. The
proposal allows for open borders
with all these 34 nations and is a
forerunner of the same multi-
national government involved in
the European Union.
The National Committee of the
Constitution Party strongly urges
all American citizens join in
demanding Congress vote "NO"
on Free Trade Area of the Americ-
as as well as on any other pro-
posed measure leading to FTAA>
Entrance in unconstitutional, and
a supporting vote would consti-
tute a clear violation of the Oath
of Office for Congressmen.

Dream b

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Graduation. Big time. Con-
gratulations on a job well done!
The emphasis for parents is on
WELL, but we know the empha-
sis for graduates is on DONE.
Some of you who are graduating
might have noticed your parents
acting a little sad or a little weird.
Though they have raised you for
this moment of departure, and
are very proud of you, part of
them probably longs to hold you
once more as they did when you
were small. It probably wouldn't
hurt to indulge them a little.
Graduation is both an end
and a beginning. It's an end to
one era of life, but also a begin-
ning to new opportunities and
new adventures. It's an exciting
time of discovering adulthood
and all of what that means. Of
course at this time, the expecta-
tion is that we-should pass on
some words of wisdom. As the
graduates begin this next stage
of life, for many there is a ques-
tion as to what lies ahead. We
who have "Been there, Done
that, Got the T-Shirt" are expect-


ig and el
ed to offer advice or encourage-
ment to get the graduates going.
I appreciated what Pastor Ed
Corley from the Evangel Assem-
bly of God
Church shared
with the 2005
Clewiston
High School
Graduates at
the Baccalau-
reate Service
last week. It.
was not only
good ,advice Pastor
for graduates, John Hicks
it is good ,
advice for
each of us as we head out into
the "real" world.
For those who missed it, Pas-
tor Ed first shared that we need
to make sure that we carry our
core values with us as we "con-
tinue on". Excellent advice! It's
even scriptural! Paul stated it this
way in Philippians 4:58- "Final-
ly, Beloved, whatever is true,
whatever is honorable, whatev-
er is just, whatever is pure, what-
ever is pleasing, whatever is
commendable, if there is any
excellence and if there is any-


Nase your dreams


thing worthy of praise, think
about these things."
Paul understood the influ-
ence of one's thoughts on one's
life. What a. person allows to
occupy his or her mind will
sooner or later determine his or
her speech and action. Paul's
exhortation to "think about such
things" is followed by a second
exhortation, "put it into prac-
tice". Thinking about our core
values is important. Putting
them into practice will result in a
life of moral and spiritual excel-
lence.
As we go forth, we also need
to remember the value of family
and friends. As challenging as
they might be at times, family
and friends are an important
part of the support system for
who we are and what we can
become. It took me a while to
realize this. Sometimes the
prodigal needs to face the pig-
pens to realize the blessing of
family. Sometimes the blessing
is realized sooner. Sometimes a
burned bridge needs to be
rebuilt. Sometimes the blood
relationships are not there, and a
surrogate family needs to be


found. But away with this
maudlin!
The exciting challenge for
graduates and for all of us is to
approach life with a can-do spir-
it. Dream big and chase your
dreams. You will have your fail-
ures, but you will grow from
every honest effort. And even if
you don't get what you think you
want, amazing things will hap-
pen. Just remember to keep God
in the equation!
Life is filled with possibilities.
Accept the challenge to explore
these possibilities with open
hearts and strong faith, knowing
that you can do all things
through Him who gives you
strength.
As you go forth to meet life's
challenges and opportunities,
may God go before you to
defend you, may He come
behind you to protect you, and
may He walk along side of you
to befriend you. May God reside
underneath you to uplift you,
may He rest above you to bless
you, and may He dwell within
you to give you peace, now and
forever more! Amen!


New beginnings and new choices to come


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewis-
ton
Sometimes the root of a word
helps us know about something
beyond just the meaning. I
remember "graduation" mean-
ing the same thing as "com-
mencement". It's when school
came to an end and you graduat-
ed. The service, though, was
called "commencement". That
word by itself has nothing to do
with something coming to an
end, but about something that is
to begin! In fact, that's what
"commencement" is about.
This is a season of the year
when people graduate from
schools around the world -
ready to begin the next steps in
their lives. Commencement will
mean making new choices. I
remember directing an under-
graduate program at the Univer-
sity of Miami when I was in grad-
uate school;
A young lady just out of high
school told me that she needed
to be away from the class one


day because of something
important. I told her that she
was making a choice. She told
me again that it was important
to her, and I 6|
told her again '
that it would
be her choice.
I thought that
she wanted
me to say that ,
it would be OK
for her to be
away, but I felt
that a part of Rev. Samuel
her experi- S.Thomas
ence was to be
accountable in her choosing
where she would spend her
time.
She added that she was par-
ticipating in a tennis tournament
and that is was a very important
event in her life. I told her that
each choice had its plus sides
and minus sides that left her
very unhappy. She was mad at
me because I wouldn't say it
was OK. That wasn't my place
and that wouldn't help her face
growing up. I felt that maybe her
prior experiences didn't require
her to choose between her vari-


ous felt obligations and things
she wanted to do. Now it was
time to share in a part of a more
grownup world when she would
be accountable.
I recall while working my
way through undergraduate
courses. I had to choose one
term between taking time off
from work and writing papers or
doing less in a course where I
wanted to do well. I chose to
take time off and lose the
income, thinking that what I did
in school would make a greater
difference in my life than the
extra dollars that I would have
saved.
The choices I made in high
school weren't. as important,
wouldn't make a lasting differ-
ence, didn't have the same
impact on my life as they were to
come to have as I grew beyond
school. There is an admonition
in the Old Testament from
Deuteronomy (30:19) when God
speaks to His people about
choices; "This is day I call Heav-
en and Earth as witnesses
against you, that I have set
before you life and death, bless-
ings and curses. Now choose


life, so that you and your chil-
dren may live and that you may
love the Lord your God..." I did-
n't have every new choice I con-
fronted to be a life-or-death deci-
sion, nor did graduation bring
drastic consequences for what I
chose. I was confronted each
day with many more choices
than ever before, though, and
the end of the structured world
of high school and the sheltered
world of living at home brought
new opportunities and new
potential pitfalls.
The admonition from God
was that I was to choose rightly
and choose well when I had a
thousand-and-one opportunities
set before me. Commencement
will mean new choices opening
and choices now that will have
more lasting implications than
ever before. May each choice be
a time of choosing life, and each
opportunity bring fulfillment of
the person God intends us to be.
May the many doors that open
and many new things in life that
begin, that "commence" now,
show us new and wonderful
faces of God's world and His
place for us in it.

Tigers wallop Lake Worth, 31-0 LawOffices of Robert L Vaughn, P.A.
;J|~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ OfXt TdI-~JU UAIv FLiJ-f ^J BB~J


Local fans got a sneak preview
at Cane Field on Thursday night of
what will be in store for the upcom-
ing football season as they watched
the Clewiston Tigers manhandle
the Class 6A Lake Worth Trojans,
31-0.
Clewiston scored early and
often, racking up a 21-0 first quarter
lead and adding 10 more points to
close out the half. Sophomore
Quarterback Jared Combass and
an impressive stable of running
backs, featuring speed from the tail-
back spot and hard running from
the fullback position, led the Tigers
offensively.
Combass completed five of
seven passes for 81 yards, kicked
four extra points and added a 25-
yard field goal.
After the intermission, Coach
Tommy Morrell used extensive sub-
Stitution, as his staff evaluated the
depth of the Tiger squad in prepara-
tion for the coming year, which will
be his third as Tiger head coach.
Clewiston kicked off to begin
the game and the Combass kick
Went through the end zone. From
their 20, the Trojans marched back-
wards as a swarming Tiger defense
pinned them for three straight loss-
es. A short Trojan punt put the Tiger
offense in business at the Lake
Worth 42 and it wasn't long before
the Tigers were in scoring position.
Tailbacks Jamal Hubert and
Richard Pope moved the ball on the
ground and Combass hit Fullback
Carl Whitehead in the flats and he
turned it up.field for a 12-yard gain
setting up the Tigers' first score.
Richard Pope got the final three
yards off tackle and Combass con-
verted the extra point. Late in the
quarter, Combass threw a pass
downfield that slipped through the
up stretched hands of the intended
receiver only to find Lamarcus
McGriff waiting in the end zone for
a 15-yard touchdown reception.
* Combass again converted the
extra point.
The score came with 57 sec-
Onds left in the quarter. The Tigers
quickly took the ball back from the
Trojans and Jamal Hubert broke
free and trotted untouched for a 21-
yard score, as the quarter came to a
close.
In the second period, Tailback
Randi Scott found pay-dirt on ayard
dive. Combass completed his per-
fect night of extra points and then

he later added a 25-yard field goal
with 3:10 left in the half.
The Trojans, who barely made it
to the game on time due to a trans-
portation mix-up, might have
wished they hadn't made it at all.
They were clearly outmatched by
the Tigers on both sides of the ball.
Their only bright spot on the
evening was the running of Tail-
back Winston Thompson who did
get outside for long runs of 39 and
20yards.
However, there was no sus-
tained offense and the Trojans bare-
ly penetrated Tiger territory during
the entire game., -
The Tiger defense was led by
solid line play by Jamal Hubert,
Pedro Diaz and William Bigham,
backed up by Linebacker Carl
Whitehead. The Tiger running
offense was impressive with both
its speed and depth. Hubert, White-
head, Richard Pope, and White
were joined by D.J. Bartlett and
Collin Ricketts in piling up 155 yards
rushing in the first half on 23
attempts.
Receiver Lamarcus McGriff also

pulled in a 33 yard pass with a daz-
zling display of good hands on a
sideline pattern and wide out Nate
Brinkley also had a nice catch on a
25-yard play.
Coach Tommy Morrell is cau-
tiously optimistic about the 2006
squad. He said, "We've got a lot of


work to do on our offensive line, as
they are unseasoned and we lack
depth at those positions. But, our
starters do have good size and have
been making progress in practice.
One of our keys to success will be
continuing to progress and avoid-
ing injuries."

book scholarship. This year's
Miss Brown Sugar, Miss Vantoria
Jones, collected an additional
$250 book scholarship to add to
her current $500 scholarship for
winning the 2005 Miss Brown
Sugar crown.
This year's festival drew thou-
sands of visitors into the area and
the overall success of the event
led to $7,500 in total scholarship
opportunities for area students.
"This could not have been
possible without the different
acts of kindness, cooperation,
and willingness to help that was
shown from each of you in the
Clewiston community and sur-
rounding areas," said one of the
festival's primary coordinators,
Jackie Young. "Through your
support, hard work and the dedi-
cation of the Alumni members,
we are honored to announce
that $7,500 was awarded schol-
arships to eligible high school
seniors."
Ms. Young said that the schol-
arships were awarded based on
the student's grade point aver-
age, time volunteered during the
Brown Sugar Festival, and by
written essay.
The Harlem Academy Alumni
Association is a community-
based organization and plans are
already in the works for next
year's Brown Sugar Festival. Any-
one wanting to help prepare to
try and top this year's festivities
are encouraged to be a part of
this community organization.
The stakes are high, as next year
will celebrate the 30th year of the

Time following storm is the


most critical, says EPEI


With the approach of hurri-
cane season on June 1, the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute (EPEI) has found
that a majority of citizens living
in the affected areas, not only
lack a plan to prepare for a hurri-
cane, but also lack a plan to deal
with the aftermath of the storms.
EPEI found that only 11 per-
cent of residents and businesses
have even the most basic plans
to deal with the aftermath of a
storm. Based upon research
conducted following Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Jeanne, and
Ivan, the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute found
that for a majority of individuals
it was the lack of preparation for
the aftermath of the hurricane
that was the most devastating.
Based upon its findings and
weather predictions of another
heavy hurricane season, EPEI is
strongly urging individuals and
businesses to put into effect a
plan to be prepared following
hurricanes hitting the shore.
"We have found that only. 25
percent of individuals and busi-
nesses have begun the most
basic plans to be prepared for a
hurricane hitting their area," said
Norris L. Beren, executive direc-
tor of the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute and
author of When Disaster Strikes
Home! "While that number is
woefully inadequate, the num-
ber falls even lower when you
ask if they have a basic plan to
put into action following a
storm.
"Based upon our research
findings last year, we found that
it is after the hurricane hits rather
then before the storm that peo-
ple must be most prepared to


cope with," continued Beren.
"Many things that would appear
common sense are overlooked
in the aftermath of these storms.
This lack of planning can be
fatal."
Among the most important
things that EPEI recommends for
both businesses and individuals
is the need to have an effective
communications plan in place.
Among the steps that EPEI found
were overlooked and is urging
that citizens be prepared for are:
Bring a three-day supply of
clothes, supplies, and food and
water, batteries, cleaning sup-
plies, medicine, cash, portable
radio.
Make sure your gasoline
tank is as full as possible when
you return.
Have alternate shelter plans
if. you, cannot remain home
because of flooding, damage,
etc.
Plan ahead what type of
meals you can serve if you have
no power and purchase food
supplies appropriately.
Buy an inexpensive power
Inverter that you can plug into
your car cigarette lighter to cre-
ate enough house electricity to
power light duty appliances such
as a fan or battery charger.
Make sure you have a cur-
rent picture I.D. to gain access to
your home or business loca-
tions.
Notify family members out-
side of area when you have
arrived..
Check outside of home,
roof, walls, chimney etc. and see
if it all appears safe before enter-
ing.
6 Open closets and cup-
boards carefully and watch for


falling objects.
Check operation of septic
system if you have one.
When resetting circuit
breakers, wear dry, rubber-soled
shoes and stand on something
dry such as a wood board.
Use only one hand when
touching circuit breaker.
After the storm be careful of
poisonous snakes, insects, and
other wildlife that may be dislo-
cated by the storm.
Assume all stairs, floors,
and roofs are unsafe until
inspected.'
Avoid turning on power if
there is floodwater present.
Always ask for identifica-
tion before allowing anyone to
enter your residence.
Prevent mold by sanitizing
personal property, clothes, furni-
ture, shelves that hold food and
clothes, including areas where
children play.
Steam clean carpeting and
upholstered furniture.
Use bleach with water (one
cup of bleach to five gallons of
water) and other disinfectants to
neutralize bacteria.
"Last year following the dev-
astating hurricane season over
63 percent of those affected did
not have a plan in place that cov-
ered these items resulting in a
delay in recovery efforts," said
Beren. "It cannot beemphasized
enough that preparation for after
one of these deadly storms is just
as critical as preparing for the
storm."
Additional information on the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute and preparation
steps may be obtained at

More hurricanes predicted


The 2004 hurricane season
was a learning experience for
many Floridians.
According to the Florida
Department of Financial Services'
study publication, "The Differ-
ence a Decade Makes". In 1992
Hurricane Andrew caused $20.5
billion in today's dollars in a small
area of the state. In 2004, four
hurricanes caused about the
same dollar amount of damage,
but across the entire state.
From 1970 to 2000 Florida's
population increased 150 per-
cent, according to the Office of


Economic and Demographic
Research of the Florida Legisla-
ture. It is estimated to increase
another 46 percent in the next 25
years. The majority of Florida's
population arrived during years
when there was relatively little
hurricane activity. Today, most of
the scientific analysis of tropical
storm patterns suggests long-
term there will be a much higher
incidence of hurricane activity.
"We foresee an above-aver-
age hurricane season for the
Atlantic basin in 2005," said the


April 1,2005 report by William M.
Gray and Paul J. Klotzbach,
researchers with the University of
Colorado. "We have adjusted our
forecast upward from our early
December forecast and may fur-
ther raise our prediction in our
later updates if we can be sure El
Ni-o conditions will not develop.
The probability of one major (cat-
egory 3-4-5) hurricane landfall for
the east coast including the Flori-
da peninsula is 53 percent as
compared to 31 percent average
for the last century."

The American Red Cross advis-
es hurricane disaster kits should
include the following items:
First aid kit and essential med-
ications.
Canned food and can opener.
At least three gallons of water
per person (that is just minimal

Protective clothing, rainwear.
Bedding or sleeping bags.
Battery-powered radio, flash-
light, and extra batteries.
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members.


Written instructions on how

if authorities advise you to do so.
(Remember, you'll need a profes-
sional to turn them back on.)
Change of clothes for all fami-
ly members.
Other helpful items to have on
hand during hurricane season:
Cash (ATMs may run out of
money or be inoperable)
Coolers and ice
Paper plates, paper cups,
paper napkins (you may not have

from water damage).
Rubber storage bins (these
can be used to protect items from
water damage).
Duct tape (Can be used to
securely close storage bins, secure


plastic on top of furniture to protect
it from leaks, tape up broken win-
dows after a storm, etc. In the sum-
mer of 2004, some homeowners

hurricane season, the Department
of Children & Families is urging
Floridians to mentally prepare
themselves for what is expected to
be astressful period. .
"The psychological effects of
last year's storms are still being felt
by many Florida residents," DCF
Secretary Lucy D. Hadi said. "Once
again, DCF is prepared to offer dis-
aster mental health services if the
need arises again this hurricane
season. We advise Floridians to do
all they can this year to reduce
stress both before and after storms
hit our state this year."
The Department's Mental
2 Health Program Office has the fol-
lowing self-help tips for residents to

nessc pian or you an yourauum icuy.
Be aware of public emer-
gency resources available in your
community.
Draw on the support of your
family, friends, neighbors and cler-
gy.
For parents, know that chil-
dren are affected more by your
reactions, and that of other adults,
to an emergency than.the emer-
gency itself. Be mindful of your
behavior during that time.
Optimal physical and psycho-
logical health before and during
hurricane season are important.
Rest, exercise and maintain a
healthy diet. Strive to find a balance
between quiet time and activity.
Try to maintain personal and


impacted areas will require help in
coping with storm-telated stress.
Ready to follow up on its work last
year, department staff is prepared
to provide them crisis counseling.
Disaster mental health services
last year were funded upon DCF's
request by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. Services this
year would again be contingent on
FEMA funding that DCF would
seek in the event of a major storm
causing widespread damage.
Last year, department crisis
counselors quickly moved out to
areas impacted by hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.
Crisis counseling is short-term help
for individuals trying to recover


niesng to an estcatea imate ,uuu
storm victims.
While working in storm-dam-
aged areas last year, counselors
found many hurricane victims suf-
'fering from increased stress levels,
anxiety, depression and other con-
ditions requiring more in-depth
help. DCF responded with Project
Recovery, a program to prevent or
treat situational stress, and mal-
adaptive and addictive behaviors.
Funded by an $11 million federal
grant, 14 multi-disciplinary teams
currently are serving 27 hurricane-
damaged counties. The teams pro-
vide assessments, referrals, service
planning and direct services.

Carbon Dioxide mosquito traps are no magic bullet,say UF experts


VERO. BEACH With spring
rains promising a bumper crop of.
mosquitoes, some Floridians may
consider buying expensive high-
tech traps that use carbon dioxide
to lure the bloodsuckers. But Uni-
versity of Florida experts warn that
buyers who don't do their home-
work could still get bitten in the
pocketbook.
Priced from $300 to $1,500, the
traps do capture mosquitoes and
other biting insects, said Jonathan
Day, an entomologist with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. The real question is
whether they will protect a yard
from the pests, he said.
The state is home to 74 species
of mosquitoes, of which about half
prey on people, he said. Only afew
species are likely to be controlled
with a C02 trap because variables
such as flight range, habitat prefer-
ence and feeding behavior deter-
mine whether the trap will capture
1 mosquitoes in large enough num-
bers to reduce biting around the
home.
"Before you buy a trap, it's cru-


cial that you know what mosquito
species is causing your problem,"
Day said. "The traps can be very
effective if the target insect is one
that doesn't fly very far or has its
breeding site near your home. But
most of the mosquitoes people
complain about in Florida have
flown a considerable distance
before they end up in someone's
.back yard and using a trap to con-
trol them is like trying to capture all
the grains of sand on the beach."
Consumers can get help identi-
fying mosquitoes by contacting
. UF/IFAS county extension agents,
he said. To assess whether a C02
trap could help, an agent will need
to know about vegetation and sur-
face water in and around the prop-.
erty.
. The traps lure mosquitoes by
emitting carbon dioxide, a gas peo-
ple and animals produce when
they breathe, Day said. Some traps
use additional chemicals to mimic
other scents. When mosquitoes
reach the trap they are captured by
avacuum or adhesive.
Day, who has used C02 traps as


a research tool for 10 years at the
Florida Medical Entomology Labo-
ratory in Vero Beach, said despite
the traps' efforts to fool mosquitoes
with C02 and other attractants, the
insects prefer people and animals.
He is concluding a study that
showed CO2 traps were signifi-
cantly outperformed by traps that
used live hosts as bait.
Because CO2 traps have only
been available to consumers since
the late 1990s, manufacturers are
still refining the technology, said
Joe Conlon, a staff entomologist
and spokesman with the American
Mosquito Control Association, a
nonprofit organization in New Jer-
sey.
"The attractants don't seem to
be working as well as theoretically
possible, and we need a whole lot
more research into the physiology
of attractiveness of humans to
mosquitoes," Conlonsaid.
Species-specific attractants,
could help consumers solve pest
problems more reliably, said Ray-
mond lannetta, chairman and
chief executive officer of American


Biophysics Corporation, the first
company to produce a C02 mos-
quito trap for the consumer mar-
ket, the Mosquito Magnet trap. The
Rhode Island company is also the
first to develop attractants based on
human skin scents, and recently
introduced an attractant designed
for the Asian tiger mosquito, he
said.
lannetta said consumers and
scientists may view C02 traps with
skepticism because other mosqui-
to control devices such as electric
"bug zappers" are not based on
valid science. He asserts that' his
company's products are effective,
and are based on 14 years of rigor-
ous scientific research and testing.
"A significant hurdle was getting
over the industry's gadget or gim-
mick syndrome," he said. "We're
constantly working with the scien-
tific community and the public to
change that perception."
The "company maintains an
extensive Web site to educate con-
sumers about the traps, how they
work and how consumers can best
use them, lannetta said.


Experts agree that operator
error can impair a C02 trap's per-
formance, said Dan Kline, a
research entomologist with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Center for Medical, Agricultural
and Veterinary Entomology in.
Gainesville.
"It's important that people read
and follow the owner's manual,"
said Kline, who regularly tests C02
traps for manufacturers and is con-
ducting a study to determine if mul-
tiple C02 traps can protect a neigh-
borhood. "Placement is a big issue
-you need to keep the trap out of
the immediate area where people
gather, and try to put it between the
people and the source of the mos-
quitoes."
Another common problem is
that consumers sometimes use the
traps only during outdoor activities,
rather than running them continu-
ously during warm weather, as
manufacturers recommend, he
said. Round lhe clock operation of
one trap can cost $20 to $25 per
month.
No one should rely exclusively


on a C02 trap for mosquito con-
trol, said Roxanne Rutledge, an
entomologist at the UF laboratory
.in Vero Beach. Consumers should
also follow traditional precautions
such as using repellent, eliminating
sources of standing water and
patching holes in screens.
"Try to keep a balance," she
said. "Do things around your home
to reduce the number of mosqui-
toes that breed or get inside, but
understand there are factors
beyond your control."
Ultimately, a consumer's toler-
ance for mosquito bites may be the
only way to measure success with
a C02 trap, Rutledge said.
"It comes down to a matter of
perception," she said. "You can
have one of these in your yard, and
if you feel like you're not being bit-
ten by mosquitoes anymore and
you're happy with it, then for you it
works."
For more information about C02
mosquito traps, see Rutledge's fact
