Family, friends honor veterans


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON All across
the country, Americans took
time off from their jobs and
everyday lives in remembrance
of the accomplishments and
sacrifices of the U.S. military
on Monday.
From memories of those
fallen in dramatic battles dur-.
ing World Wars I and II, to hon-
oring those now serving today
in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well
as throughout the rest of the
world, Memorial Day gives
time for remembering those
who fight for a greater cause
other than their own wants
and needs.
Clewiston residents share a
rich military history, including
many who gave their lives to
defend American values, soil,
and soldiers. Many of those
touched by these brave few
gathered at Ridgelawn Ceme-
tery in Clewiston to honor and


Clewiston residents share a rich military histo-
ry, including many who gave their lives to

Many of those touched by these brave few gath-
ered at Ridgelawn Cemetery in Clewiston to
honor and proudly acknowledge these brave
soldiers fallen during American conflicts.


proudly acknowledge these
brave soldiers fallen during
American conflicts.
First Sergeant James Louis
Jackson fought in World War
II, with infantry ranks that
eventually entered Germany.
WWII veterans will never for-
get the joy of declaring an end
to the European conflict,
known to most as Victory in
Europe, or "V. E." Day. The
60th anniversary of this histori-
cal date passed earlier this
month on May 8. The victory
over Japan in the Pacific Tour


of Operations (PTO) was
declared on Aug. 15, 1945,
after the atomic blasts on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki,
Japan, and is commonly called
"V. J." Day.
First Sergeant Jackson set-
tled in Clewiston years after the
war, working as a commercial
fisherman until his death in
1973. His family traveled to
Clewiston on Memorial Day
from Lake City to visit his grave
at Ridgelawn, as well as to
drop by his old house on Obis-
po.


stating storm season.
Homeowners should also pay
attention to their insurance cov-
erage before the full swing of
hurricane season. Florida's Chief
Financial Officer Tom Gallagher
urges homeowners to be better
protected.
"Last year's storms were a
powerful reminder that home-
owners need comprehensive
insurance coverage, including
flood coverage," said Gallagher.


"Review your insurance cover-
age and make sure it's adequate
so you can protect what you've
worked so hard to build," he
warned.
Tips for establishing such ade-
quate insurance include atten-
tion to timing.
"Don't wait until the last
minute to buy coverage," said
Gallagher.

When it's all



right not to know


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
We celebrated Trinity Sun-
day this past week in our
Church. Everyone knows that
the Trinity is a great mystery.
More correctly, it's a paradox
- something that is true and
yet a contradiction at the same
time. We haven't accepted
paradoxes very well in the
Western world and it causes
problems at times.
The oriental effort to under-
stand "the sound of clapping
with one hand" is outside of
our way of thinking. People
like to know and want expla-
nations. They want to be let in
on secrets and want answers
right away.
I've visited people who
worried that "the doctor isn't
telling me something" but
could not consider that maybe
the doctor didn't know either.
There are people who are sus-
pect because they belong to
secret societies and great
efforts are expended to learn
who belongs and why they are
secret. There are groups that
spend all sorts of time and
energy worrying about the
exact date of the end of time,
even when the scriptures tell
us that "no one knows about
that day or hour, not even the
angels in Heaven or the Son."
(Mathews 24:36)
That shouldn't keep us
from living a good life and
enjoying God's world. It's a
mystery and we aren't sup-
posed to know, and it's all
right!
Every now and again I get
to enjoy a sunset. It is pleasant
to watch the sun go down
over the horizon and be there
at that instant when the day
becomes evening, to watch
the warmth of the day fade
and a slight chill of the evening
come over the world.
At that moment, I just enjoy
the experience. When I'm
enjoying it, there are so many
things I don't have to think
about. I don't need to remem-
ber that the sun is 93 million
miles away and actually much
larger than the earth and me
seeing it set like a small globe
is really an optical illusion. I
don't need to remember that
there are about seven or eight
minutes difference between
when the light energy leaves
the sun and when it strikes the
earth, and that I'm looking at
light that is already seven or
eight minutes old. I don't have
to think about the other kinds
of energy that I'm observing,
that the sun is a vast quantity


There is so much I
don't need to know in
order to enjoy the sun-
set. In fact, there is so
much I don't need to
know to enjoy many
things in God's cre-
ation. I don't have to
know why someone
can care for me, and
don't really know all
of the reasons I care
for others.

of thermonuclear explosions
going on and they are emitting
other kind of radiation at the
same time I'm watching.
I don't have to think about
the reflection on the atmos-
phere that may be causing the
light of the sun to linger just a
bit even after it sinks below
the horizons and give a kind of
afterglow. I can forget about
distance between the earth
and the sun at different times
in the earth's rotation cycle,
and the angle of declination of
the axis of the earth that
affects the density of the sun's
rays hitting the earth.
There is so much I don't
need to know in order to enjoy
the sunset. In fact, there is so
much I don't need to know to
enjoy many things in God's
creation. I don't have to know
why someone can care for
me, and don't really know all
of the reasons f care for oth-
ers. I don't have to know why
it really i'lhat I e here and
others live where they live and
are happy, or why others find
their lives fulfilling and chal-
lenging even if I don't see it
myself. I don't have to know
everything there is to know
about why some like choco-
late and others like vanilla, or
why electricity flows through
wires.
When it comes to God
being a mystery and His ways
in the world being unknown,
that's all right too. That does-
n't keep me from enjoying it as
it is given to me, and that's
enough.
Human relationships give
us fulfillment because we
know they are there in our
lives, not because we know all
of the details. God is like that
too, He is there and we can't
expect to fathom all of His
being. God is there and God is
one, He will come when He
chooses. That works. I really
know all that I need to know
after all.

Letters to the Editor


Homeless in small
town of Clewiston

Dear editor:
I'm a World War II veteran
who is now homeless because I
had to give away my RV to the
junkyard because I'm not
allowed to sleep inside of it even
though my tags and insurance
were up to date.
I'm a veteran, now un-
employed with no place to sleep
because I'm not allowed to,
sleep in my RV. The reason why I
had to give my RV to the junk-
yard is because I was told I can't
sleep in it.
I used my RV for many years,
but had to park on my friend's
property. To me the city ordi-


nance is complicated and I don't
understand why I was not
allowed to sleep in it. It is private
property. I can't afford to buy a
house. I can't afford to pay rent.
I'm worried about where I am
going to sleep. I don't want to
sleep under those trees or on the
ground.
Juanito Cabebe

Editor's note: Mr. Cabebe
submitted this letter in person
and provided his military docu-
mentation, which proved he
served in the Philippines during
World War II. He is a long time
resident of Clewiston. He was
told that he could not sleep in
his RV, while it was parked on
private property and his friend
mistakenly had the RV towed to


the junkyard thinking he was
going to get into trouble. Mr.
Cabebe speaks fairly good Eng-
lish, but does not understand
the situation and unfortunately,
signed the title over to the junk-
yard not fully understanding
what was taking place. If any-
one knows an avenue of assis-
tance Mr. Cabebe can take,
please contact the Clewiston
News, at 983-9148.

Memorial fund
established
Dear editor:
We have established a benefit
funding for the children of
Joseph Battaglia, who was killed
on May 12, 2005 in a tragic car
accident on Hwy 80 (Alva).


Joseph has left behind five chil-
dren ages 10, 8, 7, 5 and 4.

Donations can be mailed t6
Joseph Battaglia Benefit Memot-
ial Fund, c/o Wells Fargo Bank
N.A., 420 Montgomery Street
San Francisco, CA 94104;
Account #5941877333, Wire
Transit #121000248.

We are currently working on
lobbying towards strengthening
our current seatbelt laws in
Florida. Joseph Battaglia would
have had a 12 percent greater
survival rate if he had been
wearing a seatbelt. The site is
under construction, but future
reference can be found at

Sincerely Maritza Perez.


CoJmmunity Profile: Noelle L. Savedoff (a.k.a. Doc Savvy)
Community Profile: Noelle L. Savedoff (a.k.a. Doc Savvy)


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What is your name?
A: Noelle Savedoff. My moth-
er's French, she was born in
Paris and I think my parents
wanted to give me a French
name because I wasn't born
anywhere around Christmas. I
love it. I think it's a great name.

Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in New York
City, in Manhattan. I didn't come
straight here. Left New York
when I was four, moved to Lon-
don, grew up in Ldodon, in Paris
and Barcelona for a while. Back
to Miami Beach, back to Eng-
land, kind of back and forth.
And, no, my parents weren't in
the military. When my parents
were divorced'; my mom didn't
know what to do because she
didn't have a family here in the
states. That's why we were back
and forth in Europe. I've pretty
much made South Florida my
home since high school. I
moved back permanently at the
age of 16.
I love Florida the most. The
United States is an amazing
place. People who don't get that
are probably people who have
not had the opportunity to live in
other countries. They just don't
understand this is the best place
in the world to live. We should
really be grateful.

Q: What do you do?
A: I'm a veterinarian. It con-
sists of doing something that I
think I was really born to do.
There is nothing else for me, no
other twist whatsoever. It was
just something that I felt was just
the way to go. Work is not work
- work is play. I get up every
day and I love what I do.

Q:Why?
A: I think they're kind of
equal: My staff and my clients. I
love being with my staff. They're
a group of girls that I've been
with for, altogether, the one
who's been with me the longest
is four years. It's like a sense of


Noelle Savedoff
family. It's really very special and
unique because I've been work-
ing with veterinarians as early as
they would let me, which is
probably around 14. One of their
biggest complaints is that there
is always a tremendous turnover
in staff. I'm very unusually
blessed that way, that I've got a
staff that sticks with me. We're
very close. About 95 percent of
the time, we get along really
well. It's really great.
And the clients the com-
munity. They're just amazing.
It's fabulous to know the people
so well and know about their
daughter getting married or their
mother celebrating their 50th
anniversary, what have you.
(Q: Can you see yourself
doing anything else?) Well I had
a brief moment where I wanted
to be a movie star when. Iwas,.
somewhere around puberty I
think something happened that
made me decide. to. be a movie
star. Very, very quickly I changed
my mind because I can't sing,
dance or act and I know I'd go
hungry and broke for sure.
There is nothing else. The
thought of it is frightening. This
is the most important thing to
me.

Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I think I'm funny. (Q:
Funny?) I think so. Not shy, I'm
very gregarious. I'm outgoing.
I'm possibly even shocking at
times. I think people look at me
and assume one thing and talk to
me and get the complete oppo-


site.

Q: What scares you?
A: Jumping out of a plane. It
would be not only dumb, but
frightening. I have a lot of clients
who are into jumping out of
planes. I had been invited on
many occasions. I have a couple
of good friends who are pilots
too. Just the thought of that.
I don't have a fear of a specif-
ic animal, but say I was on safari
in Kenya and deciding to-take
pictures and a warthog or some-
thing came, well I'm not afraid
of warthogs. If something were
running after me I thiik I'd get
my adrenaline going.

Q: What is your favorite song?
A: There is one song, I can't
say it's my favorite song, but
there's an old Bob Dylan song
that's called "Just Like a
Woman." I think that that is just
a very beautiful song.

Q: What irks you?
A: I do have a temper. Most
people think I'm very calm, cool,
collect and that I have this very
easy-going thing and I do. I try to
do a lot of things that help me
with stress, like Yoga. I paint and
I like to work with hands.
There's a real big artistic side to
me.
What sets me off, I think the
most, are people who lie.
There's nothing worse than a liar
or a thief, I think. I can't stand
liars:
I can't stand when an animal
is being mistreated. I lose it. I go
above and beyond to report, to
get the authorities involved as
best as possible. It's not once a
month, but probably some-
where between five.and eight
times a year.

Q: What memory do you
hold dear?
A: I really think it was when I
got the letter from my national
board. I had just graduated from
veterinary college and finished
up my internship at Oklahoma
State. A letter came. At the time I
had a boyfriend that I didn't get


married to. We bought a home
together, we were going to get
married and I wasn't Working yet
and he's a vet too. He came
home and I wanted to wait for
him to come home. I carried my
national board exam results in
my back pocket for 12 houri
because I was so nervous about
seeing whether or not I passed. I
hadn't opened it yet.
It was on his birthday. It was
on his 30th birthday. I opened it
and I passed. I think that was
probably one of the happiest
days of my life. It felt like every-
thing I worked hard for ... I was
in school until I was 30. And
that's consistently. That's a big
chunk of change of your young
years to invest. I knew that if
didn't pass, I could take it again
and pass, but I just wanted to get
on and get working and start
earning a living and being a vet:
It just felt like it was the key that
opened the door for everything.
Another important memory
there is a husky sled training in
Ketchikan, Alaska. I did a little
training thing and it was very
cool. I became an official mush:
er. That was really cool. The guy
who taught me was a 17-year'
old kid. His dad is a vet who lives
up by the Arctic Circle and flies
everywhere, he's a pilot, flies
everywhere to do house calls.
That was about two-and-a-half
years ago. i
Getting a letter that I passed
my boards, that husky experi-j
ence, and I think also, just!
recently,-flying with a very good
friend of mine who's a pilot. He
works for a company in Ft. Laud-i
erdale that he's a pilot for and hi4
boss wanted to test out the new
jet and take his wife and some
friends to dinner. He got to take
who ever he wanted and he
called me. I was working on a
Saturday and he said, "Can you
get over here in two hours
because we're flying to Key West
for dinner." It was my first timp
in Key West. That was really,
really gorgeous.
(Q: The thought of jumping
out the plane cross your mind?)
Never. Never. Not even once. .


The Haves and The Have Nots


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I heard a minister say one
time that in his younger days,
when his children were small, he
would have family meetings.
These meetings were to discuss
chores, and family matters, trips,
etc. Yet, he admitted, when he
would call these meetings, the
expression on his children's
faces would usually be: "What
have we done wrong, now?"
Finally, his wife pointed out to
him that the tone in his voice at
these meetings was the same,
tone that was used when he dis-
ciplined the children. Thus, they
responded with apprehension.
I wonder if that is not similar
to the response that many peo-
ple have when they have a meet-
ing with God. Despite all of the
talk that we do in the church
about how God loves us, I some-
times get the impression that
many feel that God is the big dis-
ciplinarian. Maybe for some peo-
ple their feelings go back to their
experience of their own father.
With a stern earthly father, it is
difficult for them to envision a
heavenly father that would be
anything but strict.
The Israelites dealt with this
same problem. They believed
that God would not tolerate sin.
They even developed a system
where people were judged by
the degree of their sin. The
worse the sin, the worse off you
were with God. This not only left
many with the feeling that God
totally despised them, but some,
like the tax collectors, the butch-
ers, and sometimes even the
shepherds were told they were
too unclean to even approach
God.
Spiritually speaking, there
were the haves and the have-
nots. The haves perceived them-


~/


selves as having God's love, and
the have-nots believed that they
were quite beyond it. Because of
this, many had a hard time com-
prehending why Jesus would
spend so much time with the
"have nots" those who clearly
were rejected by God. In
response to criticism for receiv-
ing and eating with these sinners
and tax collectors, Jesus told the
parable of the prodigal son.
You remember the story. The
prodigal asks for his share of the
money and then goes off into the
far country and squanders all of
it. He finally ends up doing the
most degrading thing that a Jew
could ever think of he feeds
pigs. Jesus could have said noth-
ing more horrifying about him
than that. The son finally realizes
the futility of his lifestyle and
decides to return home. This
boy's sinfulness was so great
that there was nothing left in him
that could motivate the father to
love him. And yet, the father
receives his son with open arms.
With this parable, Jesus was
trying to help us understand
something about the father and
his love. If the father loves the
son, then it is only because that
is the nature of the father. The
boy has done nothing to merit it.
And therein lies Jesus' point.
This is how our Heavenly Father
loves each of us.
First, God's love for us has no
limits He loves us no matter
what we have done. Second,
God's love is a patient love -
there is no way we can stay away
so long that God's love is no
longer offered.
God is not sitting on his
throne with a litany of sins to
read off to us. The truth is, God is
more eager to reestablish a rela-
tionship with us after we have
sinned than we are. Just like the
*7


father in the parable, he is eager-
ly waiting for us to return. In, His
heart, we are all "haves".
What we have done and how
long we have done it is no longer
the focus we are. As far as we
know, the father never even
asked the boy how he wasted all


that money. That doesn't matter"
What matters is that he is back
home. Jesus worded it very sue&
cinctly: "There is more joy in
heaven over one sinner who
repents than 99 who simply
think that they need repent
tance."

Dearest Louise,
Well, I just came from Award
Presentation and I was present-
ed my Air Medal. It is a very pret-
ty and- nice
medal. I will
send it to: you
tomorrow or
the next-day. It
should take a -r
couple. 'of --
weeks to
reach you. I
Swill insure it James
and send you Sullivanmes
the insurance
-stub- also. It- -
has a small lapel button that
YOU could wear. I intend to call
Claude when I get my pass and
see if I can't fly over or take the
train over and see him.,
Didn't yes I did! I started to
say I didn't get a letter today, but
I did. You be careful driving that
car as I sure don't want anything
to happen to you. You know
that. .: ,
a As for sweating them out" I
am already doing that' every mis-
sion and I have been n some
rough ones: Flak' and German
fighters are getting awful accu-
rate and .I'Ve seen plenty of both.
May 8th was a very long haul,
way up around North Sea by
Norway and Denmark and
down into Poland. Made me


wonder if the Russians were
doing anything on their end of
the line.
I'll have someone take a
snapshot of me wearing the
medal and will send it to you at
the first opportunity. I have your.
pictures laid out here and they
sure make me homesick for
you. Makes the end of my tour
seem like a million miles off, but
I'll stick in there pitching and it
will roll around sometime.
I was pleased to hear that
Father Wall thought of us. You
must tell me what the priest said.
.when he called. He was a very
nice fellow if I ever met one and
I wrote him a nice note before
leaving Dalhart.
Well, Little Sweetheart,' I love
you, I love you, I do, I do, and
can't wait til we're together
again. Til tomorrow, g'nite and
all my love.
Your Little Husband,

Dear Daddy,
Haven't forgotten tomorrow'
is your birthday but it looks like
all I can do is write yu. I haven't
been in town with a store open
yet, and besides, there is noth-
ing here at all.
Went on
my fourth mis-
sion. today.
Was quite a
long ., haul.
That is four in ,. .
five days now
which isn't
bad. Won't be
long at that Claude
rate until I can Hawkins
return to the
States. Smith and myself helped
set a new record over the week,
which I think will stand awhile.
Three missions in two days.
That is really work.
On my missions I have flown
over several places I have heard
you tell of being in the last war.
Today a German fighter (FW-:
190) passed so close to the nose
I could have hit him with a rock.
He ,was really in a hurry. He
passed in just a blur. Most of the
time. our fighter support you,
read about is really good. They
take the, P5t, P47 or P-38s any-.
where now. They really look
good flying around when you
are 'deep in enemy territory.
Those boys are really good too.
They .enjoy a scrap and will go
out of their way to find one.
Wish I could be with you on
your birthday tomorrow but
here I am. Maybe we can be'
together on mine. Hope to be
back by then. At the rate I am
going now,. it sure won't be
long.
Tell Mama I'll get the money
orders for the other $200.00.
tomorrow if I have time. Your
money isn't much good to you
over here. I am sending $300.00
for the ring and $1,000.00 to the
bank this 'month. I didn't get
paid for March: so had two.

anything to do it with.
I flew flares last night so I am

DearAunt Louise,
I got your letter today. Thanks.
It feels super good to get mail. I
got a letter from Mom, also she
said Mary Ann and Steve might
move south. I think it would be a
.very smart move. I think Steve
could get a steady job with
U.S.S.C. Good carpenters are
pretty hard to find down there.'
Most work for 'themselves
(whenever they want to). It really.
sounds like Uncle Jim is staying.
busy. It's good for him. Keeps.
him out of your way. Today was
payday. I've never worked so
hard for.so little in my entire life.
I'm really tired. Today was tough.
They took us 7 miles around and
around, up and down, in and out
of the mountains until we were
totally lost. Then they gave us a
compass. and told us to go for it.
.Me and my buddy made it back
in 4 hours. Was it ever hot! I've
never had to walk in mountains
before. They told us the closest .
way from point A to point B was
straight across. I never knew
straight across would be over
rocks, through river and straight
up cliffs. We made it. We were
the fourth ones to get back. Oh
well, I'd better get to bed. I've got
to do it all over again tomorrow.
Love, Joe

Dear Grandma ,
Hi. Sorry I had no time to
,Write..I don't much like to write.
I should be leaving soon to go
back to Germany. The sooner
the better. I've been over here
for three months and to my con-
plusion, they can keep the Mid-
Idle.East. The people are all dirty;
they don't. like us, even though
we won'a War for them..
By the time you get this letter,
I should be back in Germany. I
got a letter from Mom's side of
the family and they wrote that
they were going to have a 25th
surprise anniversary party -for
Mom and Dad in May. I will try
to be home for it. Well, I have to
go to sleep now.

Alligagors can be dangerous, warns FWC experts


By Loma Jablonski
It is estimated that alligators and
people in Florida are 10 times more
likely to come into contact with
each other now than they were 35
years ago. This figure is based on
population estimates that indicate
both the number of alligators and
the number of humans, which
have more than tripled since 1970.
The staff at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) states that these statistics
indicate a need for increased public
awareness about alligator safety
and behavior.
Statewide, in 2004, there were
18,048 alligator complaints
received by the FWC. Since 1948,
there have been 15 recorded fatal
attacks: on humans, including two
last year in Lee County. Of the' 15,
five took place late in the day or into
the evening; nine involved people
swimming, wading or snorkeling
and two involved children three-
years old or younger wandering
away from adult supervision. There
have been 327 non-fatal alligator
attacks documented by the FWC,
many as a result of people who
tried to capture or handle an alliga-
tor.
The FWC has launched a toll-
free telephone number to report
nuisance alligators. The number is
1-866-FWC-GATOR (1-866-392-

Rim Canal with its dinner in its mouth.


4286) and should be the primary
telephone number for alligator
complaints.
People should not report an alli-
gator that is simply sunning itself on
a bank or swimming in a lake, just
doing what alligators do. If there is
an immediate danger from an alli-
gator, the best thing to do is leave it
alone.
An important part of learning to
live with alligators is recognizing
that over time, these timid reptiles
can become a serious threat to
public safety with the wrong kind of
encouragement from its human
neighbors. Alligators are attracted
to splashing at the water's edge and
noises made by lawnmowers,
weed trimmers and airboat
engines.
Trained biologists and staff at
the FWC are experts at recognizing


the signs that indicate an alligator
has become a danger to humans,
and not just a victim of being in the
wrong place at the wrong time. Liv-
ing in close proximity to a creature
that is exhibiting signs of nuisance
behavior is not an option. The situa-
tion needs to be dealt with by pro-
fessionals from the FWC before
someone gets hurt. If you have any
questions as to whether an alliga-
tor's behavior indicates aggression,
call the experts at the FWC to have
them make a determination.
. Alligators that are actively caus-
ing problems or threatening public
safety should be reported as nui-
sances immediately. Call the
FWC's alligator hotline at 1-866-
FWC-GATOR (1-866-392-4286)
and file a nuisance complaint.
Keep in mind that this telephone
number is for alligator complaints

FWC wants boaters to think safety


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is keying in on three core
messages as its Division of Law
Enforcement gears up for a busy
summer boating season: Stay
alert, wear your life jacket and
don't drink and operate a boat.
The agency says keeping these
messages in mind can dramatical-
ly decrease your chances of get-
ting into an accident and increase
your chances of survival if you do.
"In 2003, Florida led the nation
in boating deaths with 64, and last
year we had 68. We hope to
reverse that trend by alerting
boaters to the biggest dangers,"
said Captain Richard Moore, Flori-
da's boating law administrator.
Moore said the agency honed


in on the three safety messages
after analyzing Florida's boat acci-
dent data.
Collisions with vessels or fixed
objects are the two leading types
of accidents. Last year, they
accounted for nearly half of the
mishaps on Florida's waterways.
Moore said this reflects the impor-
tance of staying alert to everything
going on around you.
"One of the biggest miscon-
ceptions about boating accidents
is that they are caused by
extremely reckless behavior, but
when you look at the numbers
you see that it comes down to
people not paying attention or
making one careless move,"
Moore said. "We want people to
go out and have fun, but also to

understand the minute they lose
focus something could happen."
Moore said alcohol and not
wearing a life jacket are the two
major contributors to fatal acci-
dents. In 2004, alcohol use was
the primary cause of 21 percent of
boating deaths. Almost one-third
of the fatal accidents were classi-
fied as "falls overboard," and
drowning was the cause of death
in 65 percent of those fatalities.
"We! don't know the exact
number of people who would
have survived these accidents had
they been wearing a life jacket,
but there is no doubt that most
might still be alive today if they
had worn a life jacket," Moore
said.
Beginning May 21, the FWC


will flood Lee County with the
three key messages to test out a
new boat safety campaign. The
$250,000 pilot program will target
boaters with television, print and
radio advertisements, billboards,
point-of-sale displays and hand-
outs from law enforcement offi-
cers, the U.S. Coast Guard Auxil-
iary and the U.S. Power
Squadrons. The agency is con-
ducting pre- and post-campaign
surveys to evaluate the cam-
paign's effectiveness. If the pilot
program is successful, the FWC
will roll out the campaign to other
target areas with high boating-
accident numbers.

water). Alligators favor this type of
habitat. Swim in designated areas
only.
Do not swim, walk dogs or
allow small children, at night or at
dusk, along the shoreline of waters
that are known to contain large alli-
gators. Large alligators feed most
actively during the evening hours. It
is illegal to water-ski after dark in
Florida.
Do not attempt to remove alliga-
tors from their natural habitat or try
to keep one as a pet. It is strictly
against the law to do so.
Do fence your waterfront prop-
erty. Appropriate fencing helps pro-
tect family and pets against incur-
sions by alligators.


Also keep in mind that if the alli-
gator is longer than four feet and
meets the FWC's criteria as a nui-
sance animal, it is harvested for its
meat and hide by a permitted FWC
trapper. Nuisance alligators larger
than six feet present the greatest
hazard to humans and pets. Small-
er gators four feet or less in
length pose little threat to peo-
ple, but they can deliver a nasty bite
that should be seen by a physician.
The bacteria in an alligator's mouth
cause bite wounds to become
infected easily..
Here are some basic guidelines
from FWC experts.
Do not feed or entice alligators.
Inform others that feeding alligators
is against state law. When alligators
lose their natural fear of people they
become dangerous.
Do not feed any wildlife in or
near the water. Dispose of fish
scraps or other potential alligator
foodstuffs properly.
Do no let pets swim or run along
the shoreline of waters known to
contain large alligators. Alligators
are attracted to dogs probably
because they are about the same
size as an alligator's natural prey.
Do not swim or allow pets to
swim in areas with emergent vege-
tation (plants growing up out of the

Alligators play a vital role in the
ecology of the state's wetlands and
are an important part of Florida's
heritage. They were, after all, here
first. It is against the law to feed,
harass, molest, and attempt to
move or kill them. Violators should
be reported by calling the FWC's
24-hour, Wildlife Alert Hotline at 1-
888404-FWCC (3922). Callers may
remain anonymous and may be eli-
gible for a reward.

gators, visit

the heritage of Clewiston, includ-
ing Sugarland Tours, which pro-
vides premier guided tours of Lake
Okeechobee and Clewiston's agri-
cultural and traditional heritage.
The building has also previously
been the location for city offices, a
city jail, and the original publishing
house of the Clewiston News. The
historic site was purchased in 2000
for future use by the Clewiston
Museum.
The services of the Clewiston
Museum and the Clewiston News
have been linked several times in
the past. In the early days of the
Clewiston News, Ms. Beryl Bow-
den was publisher emeritus of the
newspaper, writing many stories
over many years in faithful service
to the city and community of
Clewiston. In addition, MS. Bow-
den served on the original steering
committee for the birth of the
Clewiston Museum in late 1984,
which was first housed at an his-
toric site on. Sagamore Road,
where the museum was located
until moving to the present loca-
tion in 1990.
The museum currently features
a display by art students from West-
side Elementary, who submitted
colorful and interesting works
under the direction of art teacher
Mr. Juan Pena. -
The museum is open weekday
afternoons Monday through Friday
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Also, it is important to know
the difference between policies
that. cover "replacement cost"
and those that give "actual cash
value", which may greatly affect
the cost of repairing damage from
a hurricane. Many 2004 storm vic-
tims were shocked to learn that
"actual cash value" rarely paid
enough to replace a destroyed
item at today's prices, according
to Gallagher. Finally, homeown-
ers are urged to know their
deductible for hurricane cover-
age, and consider law and ordi-
nance coverage, which may call
for a 25-percent rider to help pay
for rebuilding an older home to
meet modern building codes.

One major motivating factor
that Floridians respond to is the
memory of dealing with four
major hurricanes in one season.
This memory still haunts many
storm victims throughout the
state, whom agencies like FEMA
(Federal Emergency Management
Agency) and the Red Cross have
tried-to help through programs
such as Project HOPE (Helping
Our People in Emergencies). The
project offers post-disaster crisis
counseling, community outreach,
public education, and referral
services.
.One such event, a 20-minute
puppet show called "Heroes of
the Storm," helps children trau-
matized by last year's storms,
including some children who
burst into tears every time rain
began to fall.

lowing. Maylin's progress and
watching her stay in the right
tracks in all areas of her student
life gave her great pride.

hopes to continue this commu-
nity service in years to come to

ed students to continue their

Kendra's first inprresion of
Washington D.C.? *,\\n," she
said.
While visiting grandma is an
important visit, Kendra under-
stands the importance of this next
trip to her young impressionable
mind and plans to make the most
of it.
"I'm very excited," she said-.
"This trip is going to give me 400
percent more of an opporiunitk
than my last trip. I'm going to get
see a lot of different stuff, different
monuments, and learn how to be
a better leader by learning about
other leaders."
Trips to the nation's, capital
are fairly commonplace among
today's. students. The Washing-
ton D.C. streets are often filled
with school buses and the coun-
try's youngest tourists dot the
sidewalks with open-mouthed
gasps at their first site of the
White House and other histori-


engage children than through a
puppet show," said Project HOPE
outreach specialist and performer
Jessica Smallwood. "We've had
boys age 12 or so, who come in
with their Game Boys and say
they're too old for a puppet show.
Yet afterwards, they're suddenly
vocal about their experience in
the storms," she said.
The puppets scurry about
preparing for a hurricane,, to
which students have responded
by opening up about their experi-
ences; working through their trau-
ma in a playful way.

But opportunities such as this
roner for 'jing Kendra is much dif-
fereni, as she will get a first hand
account of America's greatest
leaders during her most troubling
times. How they led this country
through that turmoil is quite sim-
ply the mother of all gut checks.
Few people can fully grasp the
character traits it takes to lead a
nation through adversity.
But for those who get to see
that leadership ability up close
and are inspired by it, already
have the makings of becoming a
leader themselves. Those who are
willing to step up to the plate and
lead by example are already on
their way. Kendra is on her way
and the great thing about this
country is that Kendra's next visit
to the capital may be in taking up
residence in the White House.
Anything is possible in America if
you have the desire to achieve
your goals.

Hurricane season starts June 1


- A hurricane is a tropical storm
with winds that have reached a
constant speed of 74 miles per
hour or more. Hurricane winds
blow in a large spiral around a rel-
ative calm center known as the
"eye". The "eye" is generally 20 to
30 miles wide, and the storm may
extend outward 400 miles.
As a hurricane approaches,
the skies will begin to darken and
winds will grow in strength. As a
hurricane nears land, it can bring
torrential rains, high winds, and
storm surges. A single hurricane
can last for more than two weeks
over open waters and can run a
path across the entire length of
the eastern seaboard. August and
September are peak months dur-
ing the hurricane season that lasts
from June'1 through Nov. 30.
The center, or eye, of a hurri-

the western Pacific, hurricanes
can occur year-round. Areas in
the United States vulnerable to
hurricanes include the Atlantic
and Gulf coasts from Texas to
Maine, the territories in the
Caribbean, and tropical areas of'
the western Pacific, including
Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa,
and Saipan.

Hurricanes names in alphabetical order
Each year since 1953, the National Hurricane Center approves a list of names
for tropical storms and hurricanes. Before 1953, storms were labeled accord-
ing to where they made landfall, since as the Greater Miami Hurricane of 1926.
From 1953 to 1978, only female names were used. Since 1979, the list has
alternated between male and female names.
Hurricanes are named alphabetically in chronological order. The first tropical
storm or hurricane of the year has a name that begins with the letter A.A
The list contains names from A to W, but skips the letters Q and U.
Six lists of names are rotated. On occasion, a name will be retired, usually out
of respect for thefamilies of those killed by a major hurricane. When a hurri-
cane name is retired, it will not be used again for a minimum of 13 years.

cane is relatively calm. The most
violent activity takes place in the
area immediately around the eye,
called the eyewall. At the top of
the eyewall (about 50,000 feet),
most of the air is propelled out-
ward, increasing the air's upward
motion. Some of the air, however,
moves inward and sinks into the
eye, creating a cloud-free area.
Tropical cyclones are classified
as follows:
Tropical Depression An
organized system of clouds and
thunderstorms with a defined cir-
culation and maximum sustained
winds of 38 mph (33 knots) or
less.
Tropical Storm An organ-
ized system of strong thunder-
storms with a defined circulation
and maximum sustained winds of
39 to 73 mph (34-63 knots).

Hairballs can be prevented


The technical term is trichobe-
zoars, but cat owners know them
by a more common name: Hair-
balls.
Most of the time, hairballs are
not a life-threatening problem,
but they can develop into a nag-
ging ailment and they may hide a
much more serious medical con-
dition, said Dr. John August, a
feline specialist at Texas A&M Uni-
versity's College of Veterinary
Medicine and Biomedical Sci-
ences.
Hairballs occur frequently in
cats because of the way the ani-
mals groom themselves, August
said. And with more than 60 mil-
lion cats out there, there is the
potential for a lot of hairballs.
Cats have. been grooming
themselves for, thousands of
years. But a cat that has a thick
coat, such as Persians and other
breeds may collect a lot of matted
hair on its tongue, and when that
.hair is swallowed, it can clog up
the digestive tract.
That's when trouble can start.
"These balls of hair can irritate
the stomach lining and can inter-
fere with digestive functions, and
the most common response of
the animal is to vomit up the hair-,
ball," Dr. August explains.
"If the condition continues, an
obstruction can form in the diges-
tive tract and the cat will either
show a significant weight loss .or
at the least, a loss of appetite."
Dr. August said there are signs
to watch for if your cat suddenly
develops an unusual amount of
hairballs.
First, if the cat is grooming


itself excessively, it may because
of allergies or skin parasites. Also,
behavioral problems can cause a
cat to groom itself constantly,
August adds.
The best prevention? "A good
brushing at least once.a day will
usually do the trick," Dr. August
believes. "You will see a lot of
excessive hair when you brush
the cat thoroughly, and that hair
on your brush is hair that the cat
probably would have swal-
lowed."
Special diets usually ones
that contain extra fiber can be
obtained from -a veterinarian or
from pet stores and these diets
will often greatly reduce the sever-
ity of hairballs, Dr. August said.
Laxatives can be prescribed,
but "most of us think there are
better ways to deal with hairballs
than laxatives," Dr. August said.
You should never give your cat a
laxative intended for human' use,
he stresses.
The calendar can also play a
big role with hairballs.
During spring and summer,
cats tend to shed their hair more
often. In addition, fleas become a
problem and allergic reactions to
them can mean more excessive
grooming.
Bathing your cat frequently to
prevent hairballs is not recom-
mended.
"Only if the animal has a skin
condition is bathing recommend-
ed," Dr. August said. "Usually, a
good brushing daily will help
reduce or eliminate hairballs.
Your cat will certainly appreciate
it."

Hurricane An intense tropi-
cal weather system with a well-
defined circulation and maxi-
mum sustained winds of 74 mph
(64 knots) or higher. Hurricanes
are called "typhoons" in the west-
ern Pacific, while similar storms
in the Indian Ocean are called
"cyclones".
Hurricanes form in the Atlantic
Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, Indian
Ocean, Caribbean Sea and Pacific
Ocean. Hurricane winds in the
Northern Hemisphere circulate in
a counterclockwise motion
around the hurricane's center or
"eye",. while hurricane winds in
the Southern Hemisphere circu-
late clockwise. Natural phenome-
na, which affect a storm, include
temperature of the water, the Gulf
Stream, and steering wind cur-
rents.
Powered by heat from the sea,
they are steered by the easterly
trade winds and the temperate
westerlies as well as by their own
ferocious energy. Around their
core, winds grow with great
velocity, generating violent seas.
Moving ashore, they sweep the
ocean inward while spawning
tornadoes and producing torren-
tial rains and floods.
In the eastern Pacific, hurri-
canes begin forming by mid-May,
while in the Atlantic, Caribbean,
and Gulf of Mexico, hurricane,
development starts in June. For
the United States, the peak hurri-
can'e threat exists from mid-
August to late October although
the official hurricane season
extends through November. Over
other parts of the world, such as

Florida has a long history with hurricanes


The 2004 Florida hurricane
season was one Floridians will
never forget. It produced 16
named storms, including six
major hurricanes. Four major hur-
ricanes Charley, Francis, Ivan
and Jeanne tore through the
state in less than two months,
leaving 116 Floridians dead and
thousands homeless. Property
damage was in the billions.
Hurricanes have been a part of
Florida history from the first
records kept by the state's pio-
neers. The following information
about some of the major hurri-
canes to hit South Florida was
provided by the National Hurri-
cane Center.


ward.
The hurricane continued
northwestward across the Gulf of
Mexico and approached Pensaco-
la on Sept. 20. The storm nearly
stalled to the south of Pensacola
later that day and buffeted the
central Gulf Coast with 24 hours
of heavy rainfall, hurricane force
winds, and storm surge. The hur-
ricane weakened as it moved
inland over Louisiana later on the
21st. Nearly every pier, ware-
house, and vessel on Pensacola
Bay was destroyed.
The great hurricane of 1926
ended the economic boom in
South Florida and would be a $90
billion disaster had it occurred in
recent times. With a highly tran-
sient population across south-
eastern Florida during the 1,920s,
the death toll is uncertain since
more than 800 people were miss-
ing in the aftermath of the
cyclone. A Red Cross report lists
373 deaths and 6,381 injuries as a
result of the hurricane.

was first spotted as a tropical
wave located 1,000 miles'east of
the Lesser Antilles on Sept. 11.
The system moved quickly west-
ward and intensified to hurricane
strength as it moved to the north
of Puerto Rico on Sept. 15. Winds
were reported to be nearly 150
mph as the hurricane passed over
the Turks Islands on the 16th and
through the Bahamas on Sept. 17.
Little in the way of meteorological
information on the approaching
hurricane was available to the
Weather Bureau in Miami. As a
result, hurricane warnings were
not issued until midnight on Sept.
18, which gave the booming pop-
ulation of South Florida little
notice of the impending disaster.
The Category 4 hurricane's eye
moved directly over Miami Beach
and downtown Miami during the
morning hours of Sept. 18. This
cyclone produced the highest sus-
tained winds ever recorded in the
United States at the time, and the
barometric pressure fell to 27.61
inches as the eye passed over
Miami. A storm surge of nearly 15
feet was reported in Coconut
Grove. Many casualties resulted
as people ventured outdoors dur-
ing the half-hour lull in the storm
as the eye passed overhead. Most
residents, having not experienced
a hurricane, believed that the
storm had passed during the lull.
They were suddenly trapped and
exposed to the eastern half of the
hurricane shortly thereafter. Every
building in the downtown district
of Miami was damaged or
destroyed.
The town of Moore Haven on
the south side of Lake Okee-
chobee was completely flooded
by lake surge from the hurricane.
Hundreds of people in Moore
Haven alone were killed by this
surge, which left behind floodwa-
ters in the town for weeks after-

San Felipe-
Okeechobee
Hurricane 1928
This classic Cape Verde hurri-
cane was first detected over the
tropical Atlantic on Sept. 10,
although it likely formed several
days earlier. It moved westward
through the Leeward Islands on
Sept. 12. It then turned west-
northwestward, scoring a direct
hit on Puerto Rico on the 13th
(the feast of San Felipe) as a Cate-
gory 4 hurricane. The hurricane
continued west-northwestward
through the Bahamas and made
landfall near Palm Beach, Florida
on Sept. 16. It turned north-north-
eastward over the Florida Penin-
sula on Sept. 17, a motion which
brought the remains of the storm
to eastern North Carolina on the
19th. It then turned northward
and merged with a non-tropical
low over the eastern Great Lakes
on Sept. 20. :-
No reliable wind readings are
available 'from near the landfall
area in Florida. However, Palm
Beach reported a minimum pres-
sure of 27.43 in, making this the
fourth strongest hurricane of
record to hit the United States. In
Puerto Rico, San Juan reported
144 mph sustained winds, while
Guayama reported a pressure of
27.65 inches. Additionally, a ship
just south of St. Croix, United
States Virgin: Islands (USVI)
reported a pressure of 27.50 inch-
es, while Guadeloupe in the Lee-
ward Islands reported a pressure
of 27.76 inches.
This hurricane caused heavy
casualties and extensive destruc-


tion along its path from the Lee-
ward Islands to Florida. The worst
tragedy occurred at inland Lake
Okeechobee in Florida, where the
hurricane caused a lake surge of 6
to 9 ft that inundated the sur-
rounding area. 1,836 people died
in Florida, mainly due to the lake
surge. An additional 312 people
died in Puerto Rico, and 18 more
were reported dead in the
Bahamas. Damage to property
was estimated at $50 million in
Puerto Rico and $25 million in
Florida.

Donna 1960

Hurricane
Donna 1960
One of the all-time great hurri-
canes, Donna was first detected'
as a tropical wave moving off the
African coast on Aug. 29. It
became a tropical storm over the
tropical Atlantic the next day and
a hurricane on Sept. 1. Donna fol-
lowed a general west-northwest-
ward track for the following five
days, passing over the northern
Leeward Islands on the 4th and
5th as a Category 4 hurricane and
then to the north of Puerto Rico
later on the 5th. Donna turned
westward on Sept. 7 and passed
through the southeastern
Bahamas. A'northwestward turn
on the 9th brought the hurricane
to the middle Florida Keys the
next day at Category 4 intensity.
Donna then curved northeast-
ward, crossing the Florida Penin-
sula on Sept. 11, followed by east-
ern North Carolina (Category 3)
on Sept. 12, and the New England
states (Category 3 on Long Island
and Categories 1 to 2 elsewhere)
on Sept. 12 and 13. The storm
became extratropical over east-
ern Canada on Sept. 13.
Donna is the only hurricane of
record to produce hurricane-
force winds in Florida, the Mid-
Atlantic states, and New England.
Sombrero Key, Florida reported
128 mph sustained winds with.
gusts to 150 mph., In the Mid-
Atlantic states, Elizabeth Cii\,
North Carolina reported 83 mph
sustained winds, while Manteo,
North Carolina reported a 120
mph gust. In New England, Block
Island, Rhode Island reported 95
mph sustained winds with gusts
to 130 mph.
Donna caused storm surges of
up to 13 ft in the Florida Keys and
11-ft surges along the southwest
coast of Florida. Four- to eight-ft
surges were reported along por-
tions of the North Carolina coast,
with 5- to 10-ft surges along por-
tions of the New England coast.
Heavy rainfalls of 10'to 15 inches
occurred in Puerto Rico, 6 to 12
inches in Florida, and 4 to 8 inch-
es elsewhere along the path of the


hurricane.
The landfall pressure of 27.46
inches makes Donna the fifth
strongest hurricane of record to
hit the United States. It was
responsible for 50 deaths in the
United States. One hundred and
fourteen deaths were reported
from the Leeward Islands to the
Bahamas, including 107 in Puerto
Rico caused by flooding from the
heavy rains. The hurricane caused
$387 million in damage in the
United States and $13 million
elsewhere along its path.

SAndrew 1992
Hurricane
Andrew 1992
The most destructive United
States hurricane of record start-
ed modestly as a tropical wave
.that emerged from the west
coast of Africa on Aug. 14. The
wave spawned a tropical depres-
sion on August 16, which
became Tropical Storm Andrew
the next day. Further develop-
ment was slow, as the west-
northwestward moving Andrew
encountered an unfavorable
upper-level trough. Indeed, the
storm almost dissipated on
August 20 due to vertical wind
shear. .By Aug. 21, Andrew was
midway between Bermuda and
Puerto Rico and turning west-
ward into a more favorable envi-
ronment. Rapid strengthening
occurred, with Andrew reaching
hurricane strength on Aug. 22
and Category 4 status on Aug.
.23. After briefly weakening over
the Bahamas, Andrew regained
Category 4 status as it blasted its
way across south Florida on
Aug. 24. The hurricane contin-
ued westward into the Gulf of
Mexico where it gradually turned
northward. This motion brought
Andrew to the central Louisiana
coast on Aug. 26 as a Category 3
hurricane. Andrew then turned
northeastward, eventually merg-
ing with a frontal system over the
Mid-Atlantic states on Aug. 28.
Reports from private barome-
ters helped establish that
Andrew's central pressure at
landfall in Homestead, Florida
was 27.23 inches, which makes
it the third most intense hurri-
cane of record to hit the United
States. Andrew's peak winds in
south Florida were not directly
measured due to destruction of
the measuring instruments. An
automated station at Fowey
Rocks reported 142 mph sus-
tained winds with gusts to 169
mph (measured 144 ft above the
ground), and higher values may
have occurred after the station
was damaged and stopped
reporting. The National Hurri-
-cane Center had a peak gust of

164 mph (measured 130 ft above
the ground), while a 177 mph
gust was measured at a private
home. Additionally, Berwick, LA
reported 96 mph sustained
winds with gusts to 120 mph.
Andrew produced a .17-ft
storm surge near the landfall
point in Florida, while storm
tides of at least 8 ft inundated
portions of the Louisiana coast.
Andrew also produced a killer
tornado in southeastern
Louisiana.
Andrew is responsible for 23
deaths in the United States and
three more in the Bahamas. The
hurricane caused $26.5 billion in
damage in the United States, of
which $1 billion occurred in
Louisiana and the rest in south
Florida. The vast majority of the
damage in Florida was due to
the winds. Damage in the
Bahamas was estimated at $250
million.

is available at the National Hurri-
cane Center Web site.

Hurricane
Mitch 1998
This powerful hurricane
began developing over the south-
western Caribbean Sea on Oct.
22. It drifted westward and
became a tropical storm later that


day, then turned northward and
became a hurricane by Oct. 24.
Mitch then turned westward
again and rapidly strengthened,
becoming a Category 5 hurricane
with a central pressure of 905 mb
on the 26th. After passing over
Swan Island on the 27th, a weak-
ening Mitch moved slowly south-
ward near the coastal Islands of
Honduras. It made landfall over
northern Honduras on Oct. 29 as
a Category 1 hurricane. Mitch
gradually turned westward after
landfall, and the surface center
dissipated near the Guatemala-
Honduras border on Nov. 1.
The remnant circulation aloft
reached the Bay of Campeche on
Nov. 2 and began developing
again. The re-born Mitch became
a tropical storm on Nov. 3, then
moved northeastward across the
Yucatan Peninsula on Nov. 4.
Mitch crossed south Florida as a
tropical storm on the 5th and
then became extratropical later
that day. The extratropical
cyclone remained strong as it
crossed the Atlantic, eventually
affecting the British Isles and Ice-
land on Nov. 9 and 10.
Mitch ravaged the offshore
islands of Honduras with high
winds, seas, and storm surge.
However the greatest impact was
widespread heavy rains and
severe floods in Honduras,
Nicaragua, Guatemala, and El
Salvador. Mitch caused an esti-
mated 9,000 deaths in Central
America with another 9,000 miss-
ing. Thirty-one people died when
the schooner Fantome sank as it
encountered the high winds and
seas associated with the hurri-
cane. Two people died in the
Florida Keys when a fishing boat
capsized. Mitch caused tremen-
dous property, infrastructure, and
crop damage in Central America,
and an additional $40 million in
damage in Florida.

Daniel M. McCarthy: A true gentleman


By MaryAnn Morris .
Daniel Marion McCarthy, born
and raised in Okeechobee and
long-time resident of Clewiston
died Feb. 24,2005 at the age of 82.
He was born in the house his
father, the pioneer merchant,
Daniel B. McCarthy built in Okee-
chobee on N.W. Second Street
with lumber cut from his grandfa-
ther's land. He was known as
"Marion" growing up, to avoid the
confusion of having two Daniels
in the family.
He played high school football
for the Okeechobee Catfish, but
when he went away to college at
the University of Florida, he asked
to be called Daniel, like his father
and grandfather before. He gradu-
ated in 1943 with a degree in
Chemical Engineering.
"One time Dad was really
crazy about a girl who lived in
Canal Point. He decided to take
her out to a really special reAsu-
rant in West Palm Beach,"
remembers his daughter, Monica
Clark. "This was during the war
and gasoline, like so many things,
was rationed. Well, on the way
back, they ran out of gas and had
to wait until the bread truck came
by in the morning and give them a
ride home. I guess Dad thought
he'd get shot for keeping the girl
out all night!"
He served in the armed forces
in World War II. While he was
overseas, his mother, who had
never been well, passed away. He
was 19 years old. After returning
from World War II, he met Ruth
Otten from St Louis, Missouri on a
blind date in New York City. He
married her in 1946 and came
back to Okeechobee to work in
his father's gas business in Okee-
chobee with Southeastern Natur-
al Gas Corporation. All through
school he had worked with his
father, who brought gas refrigera-


tion to Okeechobee in 1929 dur-
ing the Depression.
In 1947, he and Ruth moved to
Clewiston to establish the Glades
Gas Company, expanding to Belle
Glade and Okeechobee.
"The filling plant here means
that customers may obtain much
better service for an adequate
supply of gas is kept on hand here
at all times to keep the smaller
tanks filled and available for use
for stoves, water heaters, space
heaters, refrigerators and other
uses," said a Clewiston News arti-
cle from June 18, 1948.
"He was so proud of those
children," remembered Francis
Nall, longtime Clewiston resident
and former next-door neighbor of
the McCarthys in Clewiston. The
McCarthys had nine children.
"Mom and dad never missed a
school function," said their
daughter, Monica in a 1976 Flori-
da L.P.G.A. News article, "and one
year dad even took charge of the
band's flag program for Clewis-
ton."
His involvement with the
advancement of the city of
Clewiston is legendary.
In 1948,. one year after moving
to Clewiston, he joined the cham-
ber of commerce and helped
draw up its Charter. He was a
director for over 12 years. He also
served on the city commission for
32 years and was mayor for two
years. Early on, he recognized the

chobee High School in the 1930s.


need for self-regulation by the gas
industry. He was a founding and
lifetime member of Florida
Propane Gas Association.
There was no hospital nearby.
His background in engineering
served him well. He became
heavily involved in the construc-
tion of what was to be Hendry
General Hospital and served on
its Board of Directors for 25 years.


The accomplishments contin-
ue. A founding member of
American Legion Post in Clewis-
ton, Honorary Lifetime Member
Clewiston Lions Club, Lifetime
Member Clewiston Chamber of
Commerce, and a 25-gallon
donor to the Palm Beach County
Blood Bank and a Founding
Director of Clewiston National
Bank, now Big Lake National


Glades Gas, the company started by Dan McCarthy in 1946,
used this modern tank truck to deliver gas to homes in 1969.


Bank. All while being a devoted
husband to Ruth and father to
his nine children. Three of those
children, are involved with the
running of Glades Gas, the com-
pany he founded.
Dan McCarthy joined the.
Clewiston Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment in 1949 and remained an
active member. During Hurri-
cane Jeanne, he suffered a


stroke. The storm was so fierce,
emergency vehicles could riot be
dispatched to his home to take
him to the hospital. But the vol-
unteer firemen heard the call
come, over the radio, and.came
in a fire truck to take him to the
hospital during the hurricane. It
was a fitting tribute to a, great
man.
Dan McCarthy will be missed.

. Test could help third world farmers improve soil


Last week I walked into a wasp
nest both figuratively and literal-
ly. A local .pest control business
brought in several dead wasps that
were collected from the courtyard
of Raulerson Hospital. The report
was that these critters were big,
and they were flying around and
scaring the hospital staff, guests
iand patients.
When I went on-site to investi-
gate, I arrived to a beehive of activi-
ty. The hospital staff was involved
in a mock-disaster drill, and yours
truly was declared "contaminat-
ir ed". While I was inadvertently vol-
' unteering to be a victim, I had a
E chance to get reacquainted with
' Gina Ward, one of our local master
" gardeners and member of the'hos-
'- pital staff. After being officially
' cleared, Gina directed me to one of
their courtyards.
I discovered what the buzz was
v- all about: I counted at least 30 hills

Many yellow and black wasps fly-

Sshrdbs. These were big bugs -

iw ies as wide as a bumble bee. But it
was not scary at all I felt com-
fortable that I was not going to get
stung, as this was a colony of the

GAINESVILLE A process
developed at the University of
Florida will help Third World
farmers keep nutrients in their soil
and could eventually allow them
to join the fight against global
warming.
The process provides a cost-
effective way to measure carbon
in large plots of land, said James
W. Jones, a distinguished profes-
sor of agricultural and biological
Engineering with UF's Institute of
Food And Agricultural Sciences.
Crop soils in poor countries are
4 often carbon-depleted due to
farmers' reliance on primitive agri-
i. cultural practices that remove car-
bon a crucial nutrient that
helps soil resist erosion and pro-
motes plant growth but never
replace it, Jones said.
Carbon left in soil could one
I day be.used as part of an emis-
SiT :


the United Nations.
"It's going to be a long time
before anyone will pay to store car-
bon in farmlands in poor countries
in a significant way," Brown said.
"I agree with Dr. Brown that
this isn't going to happen
overnight," Jones said. "However,
research like ours is necessary to
advance the field such that soil car-
bon credits will become a reality."
Jones and other researchers
involved in a U.S. Agency for Inter-
national Development soil man-
agement program are already
Working with farmers in develop-
ing nations to determine which
carbon-saving agricultural prac-
tices work best under specific cli-
mate and soil conditions. Jones
said methods under investigation
include no-till farming, in which
un-harvested plant material is
plowed back into the soil, and


ridge tilling, where farmers dis-
courage erosion by digging fur-
rows into crop fields.
"We're doing all we can to
bring the benefits of emissions
trading to farmers who need it,"
Jones said. "We believe our
approach has great potential, and
we will continue to move for-
ward."
Field tests in the African nations
of Ghana and Mali indicate the
new process, which combines
computer models and soil meas-
urements, out-performed existing
methods that rely exclusively on
one or the other, he said.
"The computer models can
account for a wide range of crops,
climates and land management
practices, and improve on the
accuracy of previous models. In
addition, our process requires
fewer costly soil measurements


Iler Wasp: A Wasp on Steroids?


one that may seem intimidating
because of its size. Experiences
with the Cicada Killer Wasp have
shown it to be generally harmless,
unless you happen to be a cicada.
These wasps make solitary nests in
the ground that look like oversized
anthills. The adult wasps then fly
out to find cicadas, which are para-
lyzed by a sting and then brought
back to the hole in the ground. In
the underground nest, the cicada
serves as food for the developing
wasps.
* There have been two different
species of cicada killer wasps
found in Florida, and the most
common one is mostly black in
color. It has three pale yellow
bands that only go partially around
the fat abdomen. The legs and eyes
are a rust color, and there is a simi-
lar colored spot on the back
between the four, amber-colored
wings. Males are a bit smaller than
females, but are more commonly
seen flying around the colony.
While this insect may be some-
times called a Ground Hornet,
according to Purdue Extension
Educator Steve Mayer some people
refer to this large docile wasp with
a less fearful name of Cicada
Hawk.
Cicadas are fairly large insects in
their own right. They, measure
about two inches long and a half-
inch in diafneter. In the heat of


spring and summer days, you may
hear a slowly accelerating song of
repeated "che-che-che" noises
made by the male cicadas. The
adult cicadas emerge from the
ground after several years of feed-
ing on the roots of trees to mate,
and their size makes them a sub-
stantial meal for the cicada killer
larva.
Cicada killers over-winter as lar-
vae in the soil. 'Warmer spring tem-
peratures bring on the pupation of
the wasps in the ground, and
emergence of cicada as food.
Florida sees both wasps and
cicadas emerge earlier than in
other parts of the country.
In public places, this wasp can
be viewed as a nuisance. Those,
people known to have severe reac-
tions to other kinds of bee and
wasp stings will not want them
around. However, the severity of
their sting is reported, to be very
mild when compared to the sting
of other bees and wasps. And,
while the slightly smaller male
wasps are more likely to be flying
abound a person, they do not
sting. The female has the stinger,
and the reports are that they will
only use their stinger if trapped in
clothing or captured in a fist.
Cicada killer wasp colonies,
called lekss" by Professor Chuck
Holliday of Lafayette College, are
often found in disturbed areas (i.e.


near buildings and structures) that
are neglected (i.e. with minimal
landscape maintenance). Other
characteristics of nests are that they
face south, have well drained soil,
and are nearby trees (which will
support the cicada populations).
Knowing what conditions cre-
ate a wasp colony will give some
clues to non-chemical manage-
ment of unwanted cicada killer
wasps: Provide regular irrigation
and maintenance to encourage
vegetation to cover the soil. Flood-
ing the wasps out with a hose or
with a drench of soapy water is
another idea this will discour-
age wasp nesting. The suggestion
that mulching will discourage
nesting has been made, however,
the colony I observed was thinly
mulched, and offered little discour-
agement.
University of Florida entomolo-
gists have some chemical pesti-
cides recommendations for out-
door wasp control, but be stre
that you are using a properly
labeled product and are indeed-
dealing with a cicada killer wasp.
Other more dangerous ground-
dwelling yellow jackets and hor-
nets can be much more danger-
ous for homeowners to.attempt
control. Contact our office for spe-
cific pesticide recommendations
or assistance with identifying this
insect.


than earlier methods based on soil
sampling," Jones said.
Jones' research can help farm-
ers in poor countries improve
their soils, increase crop yields
and extend the useful life of farm-
land, particularly if they adopt car-
bon-saving agricultural practices,
he said.
Foreign investments could pro-
vide much-needed funds to pay
for improvements, said John
Antle, a professor of economics
and agricultural economics at
Montana State University who is
working with Jones on the USAID-
sponsored program. Currently,
investors have few reasons to sup-
port Third World agriculture but
that might change eventually if the
Kyoto Protocol recognizes agricul-
tural land as a subject for its emis-
sions trading program, Antle said.
The Kyoto treaty, which took


.TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist com-
mended Governor Jeb Bush for
signing the Freedom to Wor-
ship Safely Act into law. The
bill, which was among Crist's
legislative priorities this year, is
intended to protect individuals
from violent crimes in places of
worship by increasing the
penalties for such offenses.
"This new law will give
Floridians an extra measure of
security while they are engaged
in the deeply personal expres-
sion of their religious faith,"
said Crist. "Places of worship
must be sanctuaries from crim-
inal acts, and this measure will
help make sure houses of wor-
ship remain safe and secure."
The attorney general
worked with members of the
House and Senate to draft the
legislation in response to a
shocking crime last November
22, when two masked gunmen


effect in February, has already
spurred investments in forestry,
Antle said. In Europe, brokers help
industrial firms purchase the right
to emit specific amounts of car-
bon dioxide above their govern-
ment-mandated limits, in
exchange for making investments
in projects that plant or protect
trees. Like all green plants, trees
absorb carbon dioxide from the
atmosphere and store it in their
cells..
In mid-April, a company seek-
ing to exceed its allotment of car-
bon dioxide emissions paid about
$20 in forestry investment per ton
of emissions, according to Point
Carbon, a European emissions
broker in London. Analysts at the
firm expect $3.2 billion in world-
wide carbon dioxide emissions
trading this year, and predict more
than $40 billion per year by 2010.


burst into a sunrise Mass at St.
Anthony's Catholic Church in
Fort Lauderdale. The robbers
demanded wallets and purses
from the stunned parishioners,
shoving some of the elderly
faithful to the floor and threat-
ening one of the parishioners
by putting a gun to her head.
The Freedom to Worship
Safely Act, sponsored by Sena-
tors Rod Smith and Jeff Atwater
and Representatives Ryan and
Jack Seiler, increases the crimi-
nal penalties for an offense that
involves the threat or use of vio-
lence against any person, if the
crime is committed at a reli-
gious institution while the vic-
tim is on the property for the
purpose of participating in or
attending a religious activity. A
crime that might be a third-
degree felony, for example, will
now become a second-degree
felony if committed against a
worshiper on church grounds.

Brighton Seminole Reservation residents speak Creek, so that is the language taught at
the "pull out" program at Brighton. The Creek alphabet only has 19 letters. Some Semi-
noles on other reservations speak Miccosukee.

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
is urging consumers to take advan-
tage of a law that requires major
credit reporting services to provide
free credit reports.
The amendment to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act was designed
to provide consumers who cannot
or will not pay a fee for the reports
to access them for free once a year.
The law has been phased-in across
the United States, and Florida resi-
dents will be eligible for the docu-
ments on June 1.
"Reviewing your credit history
is one of the most important steps
people can take to avoid identity
theft," Bronson said. "If consumers
find out that someone is using their
identity or credit cards without
their knowledge, the credit reports
may be the first hint they have that
there is a problem."
A credit report contains infor-
mation about a consumer's credit
history, including a listing of all
credit cards, whether bills have
been paid on time, and whether
the consumer has been sued,
arrested or filed for bankruptcy.
National consumer reporting agen-
cies sell the information to credit
card companies and other credi-
tors, insurers, employers and other
businesses that use it to determine
whether to approve an application
for credit, insurance, loans, and
employment. A poor credit history
can result in rejection of credit or
higher interest rates on a loan.
"Consumers should regularly
review these reports for any mis-
takes," Bronson said. "Identity theft
is not the only concern. False infor-
mation that hurts someone's credit
rating can mean the difference of
whether they can buy a home or
not. It is important to ensure the
information is accurate and up to
date, especially before making a
major purchase."
Consumers can challenge and
change incorrect information on
the reports. The three major credit
reporting agencies are Equifax,
Experian and TransUnion. To
obtain a free copy ,of reports from
these agencies, log onto
http://www.AnnualCreditReport.c
om. People should be wary of any
other sites, which claim to offer
free reports but steer consumers to
sites that offer services by subscrip-
tion for a fee.

said Mary Barnes, Alzheimer's
Community Care president and
CEO. "Quantum has empow-
ered us and on behalf of the
hundreds of families that will
benefit from this facility, we are
sincerely grateful."

Pahokee Comprehensive
Alzheimer's Care Center. To

ices and resources include nine
