Hospital, U.S. Sugar to court


By Bill Fabian
LABELLE Legal counsel
for Hendry Regional Medical
Center and U.S. Sugar gave oral
presentations for the 20th Cir-
cuit Court judge's hearing of
U.S. Sugar's petition for a Writ
of Mandamus on Monday, June
27. The. presentations were
given at a special hearing for
the judge in LaBelle at the
LaBelle courthouse.
The writ was a request for
specific hospital records made


when U.S. 'Sugar Corporation
filed a public records lawsuit to
obtain information regarding
the hospital and Physical Thera-
py Dynamics, Inc. earlier this
year.
The judge did not grant a
Writ of Mandamus at the hear-
ing, but set a hearing for the last
part of July to consider evi-
dence regarding the request by
U.S. Sugar. Therefore, though
the judge did not rule directly
from the bench to enforce the


records request, the July hear-
ing will provide additional time
for the judge to possibly grant
the request, or to declare that
the hospital is clear of any fur-
ther obligations.
According to Rodney Larson,
Director of Marketing and
Human Resources for Hendry
Regional Medical Center, the
July hearing will be evidentiary,
and the judge will require U.S.
Sugar to provide a specific list to
Hendry Regional detailing


exactly which items they are
still seeking.
The Hendry County Hospital
Authority Board will meet
Thursday, July 7 to discuss the
results of the hearing, and to
formulate the hospital's plan for
presenting evidence at the cir-
cuit court judge hearing in July.
The arguments given by the
attorneys may cover allegations
by U.S. Sugar and other local
business leaders of misalloca-
tion of specific funds, such as


proceeds from the sale of the
property of the CVS Pharmacy
in Clewiston. Additional ques-
tions may be addressed regard-
ing the need for a 25 percent
raise in ad valorem taxes in
order to keep the hospital in full
function.
The hospital was cleared of
specific allegations of financial
impropriety during a state audit
performed earlier this year.

Principal



leaving CHS


By Bill Fabian
Students who expected
Lucinda Kelley to be their
principal next year may be
surprised to hear that the pop-
ular administrator will no
longer serve as the head of
Clewiston High School..
Instead, Mrs. Kelley will
become the principal at
Labelle Middle School in the
fall, and Dr: Robert Egley will
join the administrative staff'as
principal of CHS.
Mrs. Kelley said that it wili
be very hard to leave CHS and
the community of Clewiston,
after creating a very strong
bond with numerous students
and teachers while serving as
the school'sprincipal.
'I really enjoyed being here
very much. I've found the stu-.
dents and teachers to be very
warm and supportive, and I've


met a lot of great people,"
Mrs. Kelley said.
"It's such a wonderful
place, and it's going to be very
hard to leave," she said.
However, she also added
that she looks forward to a
trahsilion to a more local
workplace in LaBelle. She
remained a resident of Labelle
throughout her tenure at CHS,
and will probably not miss the
commute between LaBelle
and Clewiston each day.
Mrs.. Kelley began her
career in Polk County as a
teacher, the common back-
ground for most administra-
tors. In' 1997, she came to
LaBelle and served as the
head of the Labelle Youth
Development ""A'cad-erly for

CLEWISTON -A number of
options have been presented to
the Hendry County Hospital
Authority Board, which is active-
ly seeking ways to increase cash
flow within the Hendry Regional
Medical Center.
The hospital recently 'has
taken one step forward in the
search for ideas by investing in
consultation for a local fundrais-
ing program, which will be des-
ignated to help create supple-.
mental finances for specific
departments within the hospital.-
The idea search has culmi-.

fundraising consultation firm
that has, successfully started
fundraising projects for a large
number of hospitals across the
U.S., and boasts many years of
experience dealing with hospi-
tals similar to Hendry Regional
Medical Center.
The project is in its prelimi-

Children at Camp E-Tu-Makee meet at these reflection sites
several times a day to evaluate every part of their daily experi-

By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The
Clewiston Public Library has
provided an exciting program
for the youth of Clewiston dur-
ing .the long summer
months.The Summer Reading
Program is held at the library
on Tuesday, Wednesdays,
and Thursdays from 9:30 to
10:30 a.m. and is open to all
interested youth.
Similar programs such as
this have been held in sum-
mers past, and have been
associated with the summer
camp program hosted by the
Clewiston Youth Center.
This year, certain themes
were added to the program
with the help of' volunteers
from Project HOPE. The vol-
unteers assisted the program
by helping with reading proj-
ects, as well as providing
counseling for the youth. Each
project and reading theme
was focused on the goal of
providing hurricane relief.

Staff dedication i


By Mark Young
What appears to some as
something of a hardship, is to
others a unique' means to
restore a troubled child's self
esteem, which was lost
through no fault of their own,
in most cases.
Life 'at Camp E-Tu-Makee,
Eckerd Youth Alternatives
wilderness camp in Hendry
County, is not easy. Children,
ranging in ages from 10-17, are
expected to spend the bulk of
their time living in the outdoors
of Florida for an average time
span of year.
But it's hard to argue with a
77-percent success rate for a
juvenile program and the hard-
ships of Camp Wilderness are
offset by the success stories
and the dedication of staff
members who share the same
rough life as the camp resi-
dents.
According to the camp's
Public Relations Director
Lance Ramer, the staff at Camp


Wilderness don't ask their resi-
dents to do anything they
won't do. The children live,
work, sleep, and sometimes
eat in the great outdoors of
their campsites, but so do the
counselors. Mr. Ramer spent
two years of his life living in a
tent with the residents of the
camp. It is a requirement of
employment, but the coun-
selors understand the impor-
tance of leading by example.
Until recently, only male coun-
selors would live in camp,
because Camp Wilderness is
an all boys camp, but that is
changing.
"We are building tent sites
for our female counselors,
which will lay just outside the
campsites," said Mr. Ramer.
"This request was actually
made by our female coun-
selors who can't stand the
thought of their boys living
with the heat and mosquitoes
while they are in the comfort of
air conditioning."

Migrant workers face health and safety hazards


WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -
Down on the farm, it can be
downright dangerous especial-
ly for thousands of Florida
migrant farm workers who may
not be familiar with rules and reg-
ulations designed to ensure their
i safety on the job. But help is on
the way, thanks to a new Universi-
ty of Florida farm safety-training
program aimed at the state's
200,000 migrant farm workers.
"What these workers don't
S know about agriculture, it seems,
can truly hurt them," said Cesar
Asuaje, an extension agent with
UF's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. "In recent years,
Hispanic workers have accounted
fqr a growing number of injuries
and fatalities in agriculture and
related industries such as land-
scaping."
He said immigrants from Mexi-
co and other countries in the trop-
ics make up the majority of Flori-
da's seasonal agricultural
workers, and some have received
little instruction in farm safety.
"As a result, injuries and fatali-
ties among Hispanic workers are
increasing, and the language bar-
rier is one reason for that," Mr.
Asuaje said. "In a lot of cases,
people are hurt because they can-
not read signs or safety instruc-
tions, and some don't want to let
on that they don't understand."
Working out of UF's extension
office in West Palm Beach, Asuaje
is offering farm safety training in
11 counties, and the training pro-
gram is being expanded to meet a
growing demand from the state's
Hispanic population. He goes to
citrus groves, sugarcane fields,
tomato farms and other agricul-
tural enterprises, throughout
South Florida, teaching a one-day,
- o .-the- job training course to
migrant workers. The training,
which is presented in Spanish,
covers topics ranging from oper-
ating tractors and other heavy
equipment to handling pesticides
and avoiding back injuries.
The program is currently being
offered in Broward, Collier,
S Hendry, Hillsborough, Manatee,
Martin, Miami-Dade, .Orange,
Palm Beach, Pinellas and St. Lucie
counties.
Mr. Asuaje said the. most
recent statistics from the U.S.
Occupational Safety and Health
Administration (OSHA) indicate
fatal injuries among Hispanic
workers on the farm rose more
than 18 percent while nonfatal
injuries rose by 33 percent
between 1999-2003.
,' ,- ;In the landscaping industrN -


Courtesy photo/IFAS/AP/T
Cesar Asuaje, an extension agent with the University of Florida's Institute of, Foo
cultural Sciences, has launched a new program to educate migrant farm work
aspects of farm safety. In recent years, these workers have accounted for a gr
ber of injuries and fatalities in agriculture and related fields.


a sector of Florida agriculture that
employs large numbers immi-
grant workers nonfatal injuries
increased by 63 percent over the
same period.
"It's a trend you see every-
where, particularly in Florida,"
said Luis Santiago, director of
OSHA in the Fort Lauderdale area.
"They're doing work that others
won't do and that usually
means dangerous work."
For example, when you can't
read instructions on heavy equip-
ment, just about any work can
become dangerous, Mr. Santiago
said. He cited recent deaths
among workers using heavy-duty
industrial lawnmowers in land-
scaping operations in South Flori-
da residential areas. Workers
unfamiliar with warnings often
use them on steep slopes near
canals and sometimes tumble
in and get pinned under the
mower.
Santiago said federal regula-
tions require safety training for
every worker. While some
employers usually show a Span-
ish- language video, that's no
guarantee that every migrant
worker will receive effective train-
ing.


"Most growers are honest, but
some don't train workers
because they want to avoid
claims against them if something
goes wrong," Mr. Santiago said.
"For example, a lot of these work-
ers have never seen a respirator
before working here. If they're
spraying pesticide, they might not
know that a respirator is required
for protection."
While video training materials
may help, Mr. Asuaje said it's bet-
ter to have someone teaching in
person. In addition to training
workers at farms around the
state, he organized the Hispanic
Health and Safety Fair in Home-
stead, Fla. on June 4, and he is
planning a similar program in
Kissimmee on August 20. More
than 1,000 migrant farm workers
are expected to attend.
The popularity of the farm
safety program has led Mr. Asuaje
to begin offering other Spanish-
language classes. His office is one
of the few places where Florida
residents can take Spanish- lan-
guage classes for a license to
apply pesticides something
that can give a new landscaping
company a kle' up ..nr competitors
who are rnot lice-rr., to apply


pest-control produ
and shrubs.

ing class is popular

The test for the license is in
English, and applicants need
some basic reading skills in Eng-
lish to pass the examination, but
instruction in Spanish can make a
difference in how well the stu-
dents understand basic concepts,
he said.
"We start with Spanish and
include more and more English
as the class goes along," he said.
"If someone has a problem
understanding something, we
can work it out in Spanish, which
is easier."
Mr. Asuaje said workers with
acceptable reading skills seem to
benefit most, while those who
have lower reading skills will
begin to learn the process for pes-
ticide certification.
With the growing number of.
Spanish- speaking people in Flori-
da, Mr. Asuaje says he has only
begun to scratch the surface in
the demand for instruction in
farm safety and farming.

Corps begins pulse releases from Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE, FLA-The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(Corps) began Level three pulse
release from Lake Okeechobee
to the St. Lucie Canal and
Caloosahatchee River on Tues-
day, June 28.
However, if heavy rains con-
tinue and Lake Okeechobee con-
tinue to rise, the Corps will possi-
bly have to initiate Zone C
regulatory release.
Pulse release are designed to
mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estu-
aries via the St. Lucie Canal to the
east and the Caloosahatchee
River to the west.
They attempt to strike a bal-
ance between the lake's liftoral
zone and the estuaries. In ten
days, a Level one pulse release
to the Caloosahatchee River can
lower the lake 0.07 ft. (average of.
1,600 cfs/day), a level two can
lower it by 0.10 ft. (average of 2,
300 cfs/day), and a level three by


0.13 ft. (average of 3,000
cfs/day). In ten days, a level one
pulse release to the St. Lucie
Canal can lower the lake 0.03 ft.
(average of 730 cfs/day), a level
two lower it by 0.04 ft. (average
of 950 cfs/day), and a level three
byO.05 ft. (average of 1,170
cfs/day)
Zone C regulatory releases are
constant each day unlike a pulse
release, which varies each day.
Zone C release may be last
longer than the ,10- day pulse
release, but for comparison, over
a 10 day period, a Zone C release
to the Caloosahatchee River can
lower the lake 0.20 ft. (average of
4,500 cfs/day), and a Zone C
release to the St.. Lucie Canal can
lower the lake 0.11 ft. (average of
2,500 cfs/day). these releases
could continue until pulse
release can be resumed provided
rainfall and inflow do not contin-
ue to cause Lake Okeechobee to
rise. Discharges are adjusted to


accommodate local, runoff and
charges in the tidal cycle.
Last Friday's lake level was
15.53 feet, which is 1.30 feet
higher then the average for this

What happened to Christ's Disciples? Tips help avoid shark attacks


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The lives, ministries, and deaths
of Christ's disciples are generally of
interest to those of us who share
the Christian faith, After all, these
are the individuals who knew Jesus
first hand and dedicated their lives
to sharing that relationship so that
all might share in the abundant
wealth of great things we have in
ChristJesus.
The four Gospels and Paul's
Epistles reveal a lot about the early
ministries of these special people,
but we have a challenge before us
when we tryto find out about them
after the launch of the early church
and how they met their maker.
What we do have are traditions,
and although the details of tradi-
tions are often somewhat exagger-
ated, most contain an element of
truth.
Matthew wrote his Gospel in
Hebrew to try to remain authora-
tive in his accounts of the miracles
and teachings of Christ, Later, the
gospel of Matthew was translated
into Greek so Gentiles could read it.
From reports, Matthew was mar-
tyred by the sword, which generally
means beheading.
Mark carried the word down to
Egypt and then to Alexandria,
where he died after being dragged
through the streets by horses, Luke,


the physician, author of the Gospel
of Luke and the book of Acts, was
hanged in Greece as a result of
pagan opposition.
The Apostle John traveled to the
Roman province of Asia (Western
Turkey) where he became Bishop,
specifically over the seven church-
es named in the book of Revela-
tions. He was boiled in a large
basin of oil during the first wave of
Roman persecution under the
Emperor Nero. Miraculously, he
survived Decades later John was
sentenced to serve in the mines on
the prison island of Patmos. Finally
reed when the emperor died, John
returned and served again as the
Bishop of Edessa. John was the
only disciple to die of old age in
bed. The Emperor Nero also mar-
tyred Peter. Peter, feeling unworthy
to die in the same position as
Christ, asked to be crucified upside
down. James, the brother of Jesus,
refused to deny his faith in Christ
and was thrown from the pinnacle
of the temple-the same where
Satan took Jesus. Miraculously, he
survived the fall, so they beat him to
death with clubs. James the
greater, son of Zebedee, was ulti-
mately beheaded in Jerusalem.
(Acts 12:2) Andrew brother of
Simon Peter, was crucified on an X
shaped cross at his request after
being severely whipped by seven


soldiers. Tradition has it that he
continued to preach to his tormen-
tors for two days until he died.
Thomas was stabbed to death
with spears by pagans while on a
missionary trip to India.
Bartholomew also met his death in
India, being flayed to death with a
whip. Philip was martyred in Syria.
Jude, brother of Jesus, was killed
with arrows when he refused to
den his faith. Simon the Zealot and
Thaddeus were martyred but
there are not many details as to
how. Matthias, chosen b lot to
replace Judas, was stoned to death.
The Apostle Paul was beheaded by
Nero.
Although not every detail can be
verified historically, the universal
belief of the early Christian writers
was that each faced martyrdom
faithfully without denying their
belief in the resurrection of Christ.
The fact that we are here today
gives evidence to the fruits of their
efforts and scarifies.
Let us give thanks for their faith-
ful witness, and in the words of the
song by Jon Mohr, "May all who
come behind us find us faithful.
May the fire of our devotion light
their way. May the footprints that
we leave lead them to believe, and
the lives we live inspire them to
obey. May all who come behind us
find us faithful."


Fourth of July is a time to give thanks


By Samuel S. Thomas,
%Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church
We just celebrated the Fourth
of July weekend. A national holi-
day is celebrated in our Churches
in spite of beliefs about "separa-
tion of church and state." That is
rightfully so. The political system
where people live are affected by
their religious beliefs and
enshrined in their laws are the
customs and mores of the people.
In this country, the founding
fathers reflected their beliefs in
our founding documents; as all
people do today.
This country was founded by
many who sought religious free-
dom and it was their wish to wor-
ship as they chose. In turn the
country made an impact on their
way of life, language customs
and practices. The people of the
New Testament lived in a world of
political oversight by foreign
despots and alien powers. The
talk of the establishments of a
New Jerusalem (Revelation 3:12,
21:2) was about a "theocracy"
but it will nevertheless be a gov-
ernment too. The lesson about
the Pharisees attempting to trap
Jesus that deals with paying taxes
is well-known: "Give to Caesar's
and to God what is God's
(Matthew 22:21)" It is clear that
all have a responsibility to the
land and cannot ignore its place
in our lives. It is appropriate there-
fore for our Churches to recog-


nize, give thanks, honor and work
to complement the good works of
our country, as the country
should work to complement the
contributions of faith communi-
ties too. I believe that we have a
responsibility to make the coun-
try the best we can; bringing to
bear the gifts that the faith com-
munity has to offer in its policies
and practices. We thank God this
Fourth of July for the freedoms we
have, including the freedom to
worship, and we should make
every effort to see that we are
"one nation under God".
I lived in another country for
twelve years, working in a mis-
sionary area and serving the faith-
ful of different cultures and back-
grounds than I had known.
Canada enjoys the freedom and
opportunities that people from all
over the world seek, as we enjoy
them too.
One day on television, there
was a news report on immigrants.
One couple who had come from
the then Soviet-Union had moved
to Canada but a few years later,
chose to return to their former
country.
- This caught my interest
because I wondered why they
would have chosen to return to a
country that did not offer the free-
doms or opportunities enjoyed by
North Americans. In the inter'
view, they said that they felt less
secure in the West, less likely to
know what was expected of
them, less familiar, less comfort-


able.
I had two thoughts about'what
they said; they were giving up a
"pearl of great price" and yet I, liv-
ing as an immigrant, knew their
feelings about the comfort, the
security, the special place that a
homeland gives.
The Germans have a special
word for "homeland"-"heimat"
which is more than just the place
we come from. It has to do with
our belonging, having that coun-
try be a part of us, finding a spe-
cial place in our hearts for the
land where we are born and grew
up. That is what we celebrate on
the Fourth of July; this homeland
and our place in it.
The Lord who called on us to
"Render unto Caesar" knew of
the importance of the land where
we live in our lives and how it
affects us in our very being In a
land of exceptional opportunity
and great freedoms; I am happy
to be able to celebrate this Fourth
of July at our altar.
IN the midst of all the prob-
lems we face and the difficulties
that are a part of our national life;
it is easy to lose perspective on the
blessings and benefits, and our
corporate life that makes it all
possible. May we always make
our best "renderings" to our
country; support it, reform it
when needed, respect it, and
encourage it to be all that God
intends for us.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. About six
months ago I spent a lot of money
purchasing a teacup poodle. I was
told that the most he will max out
at would be five pounds. Well he is
about eight months old now and is
nine pounds, and I have been told
he can still grow until one year of
age. Am I going to end up with a
regular poodle that I spent $800
on? Was I lied to and ripped off?
Bottom line is I love my dog regard-
less, and wouldn't trade him for the.
world. I do'feel like I got the shaft
though.
What do you think?
Thanks Doc, Janis in Loxa-


hatchee.
A: Well hey
Janis. I have
heard this story
before, and I
am sorry about
your disap-
thing to under- .
stand about
teacups is that
here is no guarantee they will be
tea-cups. Even if both parents are
teacups, there is always the possi-
bility that there will be a regular one
born to them. Ok, let's define what
a teacup is. A teacup is a very petit

genetic variation of small breeds of
dogs. They always go for big bucks.
Teacups can be Poodles, Chi-
huahuas, Yorkies...etc. There must
be a genetic line in the breeding to
produce them. Think of it as a sort
of dwarfism. Also think of it as a
genetic roll of the dice. I am sure if
you contacted your breeder they
would have offered you something
like a small cash refund or maybe
another dog. Problem is, I think
you have waited too long to say
something. Best thing to realize is
you love your dog. My best opinion
is to write it off as a learning experi-
ence, and just go forward. Hope
that helps. Best Wishes, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my
name is Jeremy. A few weeks back
I heard you make mention of, "Vac-
cines that can cause cancers in
cats" on your radio show. Are there
special ways to avoid this? And,
how common is this? Thanks Doc.
A: Well hey there Jeremy!,Yes
there are ways to prevent this, but
first let me give youth a little back-
ground on these cancers. These
cancers are called vaccine-induced
sarcomas, and they are very aggres-
sive. They are said to be caused by
the adjuvant or mixed bi-products
that are added to the vaccine. So
let's be clear it is not the vaccine
itself, but it is the mixture that
comes with it. The frequency of this
happening is not common, howev-
er it can be so devastating that even
one case is too much. Many of these
cases are said to be caused by
rabies vaccination. Leukemia vacci-
nations have also had negative
press to associate it with cancer as
well. The best way to prevent this is
to make sure your veterinarian uses
a vaccination program called "Pure-
vax" by a company called Merial.
Purevax is the only known line of
total protection for both cats and
dogs that do not have these bi-prod-
ucts mixed in with them. I hope that
answers your question Jeremy, and
thanks for listening to the show!
Take good care, Doc Savvy.

Every year, millions of tourists
and residents visit Florida's beach-
es and waterways, and these
beaches and waterways will more
than likely contain sharks. Accord-
ing to experts, while there are no
guaranteed ways to avoid shark
attacks, understanding shark
behavior could help you make bet-
ter decisions on when and where
to swim.
"It's very important for people
who visit Florida waters to be
aware of their surroundings, under-
stand the relative risks, and be edu-
cated on various shark issues such
as behavior, biology and fisheries,"
says Brent Winner, scientist for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission's (FWC) Fish and
Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI).
In the over 400 million years that
sharks and their ancestors have
roamed Florida waters, their role in
their environment has changed
very little. As the top predator in
most marine ecosystems, sharks
continue to help maintain balance
within each ecosystem they inhab-
it.
Florida's diverse shark popula-
tion includes species that range in
size from only a few feet to more
than 40 feet in total length. Most of
these species feed on fishes or
marine invertebrates. Some even
feed on plankton, but none see
humans as a food source. Experts
believe that most shark attacks are
cases of mistaken identity, which
explains why nearly all shark
attacks that occur in Florida waters
are of a bite-and-release nature.
The percentage of fatal shark
attacks has dramatically decreased
worldwide: in Florida, shark
attacks are fatal only 1% of the time,
10 times less than the current
worldwide average.
Many shark species are com-
mon in Florida's near shore waters
and bays. More than 13 species of
shark use these areas as nursery
grounds for their pups. Scientific
data show that many shark species
migrate in and out of Florida's
waters each year. These migrations
are
often linked to temperature and
the presence of prey such as mul-
let, sardines, menhaden, and other
species of baitfish. Migrating sharks
will either move in an inshore-off-
shore manner or along latitudinal
gradients (e.g., north-south).
In Florida, sharks typically move
inshore and north in the spring and
summer, and offshore and south in
fall and winter months. This pat-
tern explains why shark activity is at
its peak in Florida waters during
Aprilthrough October,.which coin-
cidentally, is also the time period
that humans are more likely to be
in the water. Yet shark attacks still
remain very rare. Humans are 30
times more likely to be struck by
lightning in Florida than to be bitten
by a shark. Experts agree that the
increase in the number of shark
attacks in recent years is more relat-
ed to an increase in human visitors
than to an increase in shark popu-
lations or activity.
Humans are much more of a
danger to sharks than vice versa.
On average worldwide, fewer than
10 people die from shark attacks
each year; however, the world's
fisheries kill an estimated 100 mil-
lion sharks annually. The general
biology and life history of most
shark species make them extreme-
ly vulnerable to overfishing, which
is why federal and state regulations
protect,these valuable resources.
Some data show that shark popula-
tions are at 20%0/o-30% of the level
they were just 25 years ago. To
ensure our own safety and the con-
tinued existence of these fascinat-
ing fishes, people need to become
more aware of sharks and more
educated about sharks and related
issues.

Reducing the odds
of a shark attack
There are precautions you
should take to avoid shark attacks.
It is extremely unlikely for a per-
son to be bitten. or attacked by a
shark in Florida waters, and attacks
are rarely life threatening. However,
if you are thinking of going swim-
ming on an ocean beach, and if
you are concerned about sharks,
there are a number of steps you
can take to reduce your chances of
eing bitten:
Always stay in groups since
sharks are more likely to attack a
solitary individual.
Do not wander too far from
shore-this isolates an individual
and places him or her far away
from assistance.
Avoid being in the water dur-
ng darkness or twilight hours
when sharks are most active and


have a competitive sensory advan-
tage.
Do not enter the water if
bleeding from an open wound or if
menstruating a shark's ability to
smell blood is acute.
Wearing shiny jewelry is dis-
couraged. When light reflects off
shiny jewelry, it resembles the
sheen of fish scales.
Avoid waters with known dis-
:harges or sewage and waters used
for any type of fishing--especially if
here are signs of bait fishes or feed-
ng activity. Diving seabirds, which
frequently feed on bait fishes, are


good indicators of such activity.
While there are myths and
anecdotes about dolphins saving
humans from shark attacks, sight-
ing dolphins does not indicate the
absence of sharks both often eat
the same foods.
Use extra caution when
waters are murky.
Remember that sharks see
contrast particularly well. Uneven-
tans and bright colored clothing
may draw a shark's attention.
Refrain from excess splash-
ing, as this may draw a shark's
attention.
Do not allow pets in the
water: their erratic movements can
cause sharks to mistake them for
baitfish.
Be careful when occupying
the area between sandbars or near
steep drop-offs-these are favorite
hangouts for sharks.
Swim only in areas tended by
lifeguards.
Do not enter the water if
sharks are known to be present,
and get out of the water if sharks
are sighted.
Never harass a shark!

Shark attacks
Worldwide there are probably
70-100 shark attacks annually
resulting in about 5-15 deaths. We
say "probably" because not all
shark attacks are reported; our
information from Third World
countries is especially poor, and in
other areas efforts are sometimes
made to keep attack quiet for fear
of bad publicity. Historically the
death rate was much higher than
today, but the advent of readily
available emergency services and
improved medical treatment has
greatly reduced the chances of
mortality. Actual numbers of shark
attacks certainly are going up each
decade because of increasing num-
bers of bathers in the water, but
there is no indication that there is
any change in the per capital rate of
attack.
Most attacks occdr in near shore
waters, typically inshore of a sand-
bar or between sandbars where
sharks feed and can become
trapped at low tide. Areas with
steep dropoffs are also likely attack
sites. Sharks congregate there
because their natural food items
also congregate in these areas.
There are three major kinds of
unprovoked shark attacks. By far
the most common are "hit and
run" attacks. These typically occur
in the surf zone with swimmers
and surfers the normal targets. The
victim seldom sees its attacker and
the shark does not return after
inflicting a single bite or slash
wound. In most instances, these
probably are cases of mistaken
identity that occur under conditions
of poor water visibility and a harsh
physical environment (breaking
surf and strong wash/current con-
ditions). A feeding shark in this
habitat must make quick decisions
and rapid movements to capture its
traditional food items. When these
difficult physical conditions are
considered in conjunction with
provocative human appearance
and activities associated with
aquatic recreation (splashing,
shiny jewelry, contrasting colored
swimsuits, contrasting tanning,
especially involving the soles of the


feet), it is not surprising that sharks
might occasionally misinterpret a
human for its normal prey. We sus-
pect that, upon biting, the shark
quickly realizes that the human is a
foreign object, or that it is too large,
and immediately releases the vic-
tim and does not return. Some of
these attacks could also be related
to social behaviors unrelated to
feeding, such as dominance behav-
iors seen in many land animals.
Injuries to "hit and run" victims are
usually confined to relatively small
lacerations, often on the leg below
the knee, and are seldom life-
threatening.
"Bump and bite" attacks and
"sneak" attacks, while less com-
mon, result in greater injuries and
most fatalities. These types of
attack usually involve divers or
swimmers in somewhat deeper
waters, but occur in near shore
shallows in some areas of the
world. "Bump and bite" attacks are
characterized by the shark initially
circling and often bumping the vic-
tim prior to the actual attack.
"Sneak" attacks differ in having the
strike occur without warning. In
both cases, unlike the pattern for
"hit and run" attacks, repeat attacks
are not uncommon and multiple or
sustained bites are the norm.
Injuries incurred during this type of
attack are usually quite, severe, fre-
quently resulting in death. We
believe, these types of attack are the
result of feeding or antagonistic
behaviors rather than being cases
of mistaken identity. Most shark
attacks involving sea disasters, e.g.
plane and ship accidents, probably
involve "bump and bite" and
"sneak" attacks.
Almost any large shark, roughly
two meters or longer, in total
length, is a potential' threat to
humans. Three species, however,
have been repetitively implicated
as the primary attackers of man:
the white shark (Carcharodon car-
charias), tiger shark (Galeocerdo
cuvier) and bull shark (Carcharhi-
flus leucas). All are cosmopolitan
in distribution, reach large sizes,
and consume large prey items such
as marine mammals, sea turtles,
and fishes as normal elements of
their diets. These species probably
are responsible for a large portion
of "bump and bite" and "sneak"
attacks. The bull shark is unusual
because it can survive in fresh
water and may be found in estuar-
ies and rivers. Some fishermen
even report seeing bull sharks in
Lake Okeechobee.
Other species, including the
,great hammerhead iSphyrna
mokarran), shlonfin rmako ilsurus
oxyrhynchusj, oceanic w\hiletip
(Carcharhinus longimanus), Gala-
pagos (Carcharhinus galapagen-
sis), and certain reef sharks (such
as the Caribbean reef shark, (Car-
charhinus perezi) have been impli-
cated in these style of attacks. We
know less about the offending par-
ties in "hit and run" cases since the
shark is seldom observed, but it is
safe to assume that a large suite of
species might be involved. Evi-
dence from Florida, which has 20-
30 of these type attacks per year,
suggests that the blacktip (Car-
charhinus limbatus) [possibly spin-
ner (Carcharhinus brevipinna) and
blacknose (Carcharhinus acrono-
tus)] sharks are the major culprits
in this region.

Did hurricanes leave


a storm of babies?


By MaryAnn Morris
In light of the "baby booms"
that came after soldiers from
World War II and the Korean War

dered if the prolonged time spent
home, without lights or television
would result in a similar "boom"
for South Florida. For two months

although some new moms said
they had conceived during the
storms, mostly it was business as


usual. But,. there is a second
thought.
"One couple who delivered

during the storms. He is a fire-
fighter, and like other emergency
personnel, was on duty, but then
he came home!" said Melinda
Glasco of Martin Memorial Hospi-

been increasing with the popula-

172 babies, the second highest
ever," she continued.
"Our nurses said there have
been 3 deliveries so far and they
expect six to eight more today. It's
only the first of July, we'll see if it
keeps up," Ms. Glasco said,
"Maybe relief that the air condi-
tioning came back on was the
inspiration!"
It's really too early to be sure.

CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar Cor-
poration's Molasses & Liquid Feed
Department recently completed
certification in the American Feed
Industry Ass ocialion's, (AFIA) new
Sale Feed Sale Food Leadership
Program. The national initiative is
intended to demonstrate and
ensure continuous improvement
in the delivery of a safe and whole-
some feed supply for the growth
and care of animals.
"U.S. Sugar Corporation is one
of the first companies in the United
States to successfully complete the
program, "said AFIA President Joel
Newman. "The company has
demonstrated a strong commit-
ment to food safety provided con-
sumers with additional reason for
confidence in the products they
provide."
AFIA's Safe Feed/Safe Food certi-
fication signifies that U.S. Sugar's
Suga-Lik, Feed Department has
embraced the feed industry's
proactive role in creating feed
based safety programs and that
they are dong their part fo reduce
food safety risks by raising the
industry's "own bar" when it
comes to this important obligation.
IN order to receive the certification,
the feed manufacturer must be
able to identify the source from
which the ,ingredients that are
incorporated into a feed or feed
ingredient have been supplied. The
trace ability of the food chain must
be established for all stages of pro-
duction, processing and distribu-
tion.
"Food safety is our number one
priority," said Patrick Whidden,

Local radio amateurs participate in national field day


As-a part of national emer-
gency preparation, radio ama-
teurs across the nation operate
radio stations under emergency
conditions for a 24 hour period.
They work in emergency loca-
tions with emergency power
sources and attempt to contact as
many stations across the country
to simulate conditions that occur
during disasters. The annual
event s known as "Field Day" and
is sponsored by the American
Radio Relay League. Hendry
County participated in this event
on Saturday, June 26 by making
use of the emergency station at
John Boy Auditorium in Clewis-
ton.
The Auditorium is a designat-
ed emergency shelter for the area
and has emergency electrical gen-
erator capacities. There is a radio
station in the building with anten-
nas on the roof to make certain
communication to the outside

stations in different parts of the
country by both voice and code.
They were from areas around
Lake Okeechobee and included
Jim Sparks, AA4BN and Sam
Thomas, W3ALE from Clewiston
. Also participating was Tom
Street, N5KFR from Moore Haven
and Johnny Blakeney, WB4MED
and Carl "Doug" Cardin, KG4NNN
from Belle Glade.
This year, the American Radio
Relay League sent 'an assistant
regional director to share with the
local group of five radio amateurs
who had the local emergency sta-
tion on the air during the drill.
Briefly visiting the station was Jeff
Beale, WA4AW from Loxahatch-
ee who toured several emergency
Field Day sites in South Florida
and coordinated with other local
centers.

Court


Continued From Page 1
According to HRMC Chief
Executive Officer Craig Cud-
worth, U.S. Sugar informed the
hospital that it will not be asked
to pay attorney's fees for the cur-
rent matter, for which the hospi-
tal has mounted a $6,600 total in
legal fees for its own defense.
The hospital board will also
discuss ideas and plans to sup-
plement purchases of new
equipment with consultant
Gregg Watters, who will assist
the hospital with finding solu-
tions for improving the current
facilities.


Principal
Continued From Page 1
She later became assistant
principal of Labelle High School
prior to coming to CHS. Mrs. Kel-
ley began to serve as principal of
CHS in the fall of 2000, after the
retirement of Eleanor Franks.
Mrs. Kelley reflected on the
changes she has seen during her
years at CHS. "I think the admin-
istrative staff has made a lot of
headway in the last few years, as
far as academics. We've' also
seen a great improvement in the
overall climate of the school,
and have made a lot of positive
strides," she said, in reference to
-the behavior of the students and ,
the quality of their educations.
"It has always been a great
boost to see students become
more accepting of one another,
and to see more and more stu-
dents going off to college," Mrs.
Kelley said.
According to Hendry County
Schools Assistant Superinten-
dent Gordon Swaggerty, Mrs.
Kelley's final day at CHS will be
Thursday, June 30. Incoming
principal Dr. Egley will begin
work on Friday, July 1.
Dr. Egley is a CHS graduate
and hometown native of Clewis-
ton. He currently is a professor
of Educational Leadership at the
University of South Florida in St.
Petersburg, where he has taught
graduate courses at USF's Col-
lege of Education since 2001.
Prior to joining the university
faculty, Dr. Egley was an admin-
istrator at the elementary, mid-
dle, and high school levels.
Therefore, the adjustment from
life at the university-level, to the
day-to-day environment of the
high school level should be a
smooth one.
Mrs. Kelley said that familiar
environment is one of many the
elements of CHS that she will
miss.
More news on the incoming
principal will be available as the
summer progresses' and Dr.
Egley settles into his new job.

Hurricane season is under way 2005 hurricane names
Y m_


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 hurri-
cane nears land, it can bring tor-
rential rains, high ,winds, and
storm surges. A single hurricane
can last for more than 2 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 November
30.
The center, or eye, of a hurri-
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).
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 easter-
ly 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-
cane threat exists from mid-
August to late October although
the official hurricane season
extends through November. Over
other parts of the world, such as
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:


Hurricane
Categories
Hurricanes are rated from 1 to
5 according to what is known as
the Saffir-Simpson Scale.
Category 1: Hurricane has a
central barometric pressure of
28.94 inches or more and winds
of 74 to 95 mph. The storm is
accompanied by a 4 to 5 foot
storm surge and causes minimal
damage
Category2: Pressure 28.5 inch-
es to 28.93 inches, winds from 96
mph to 110 mph, storm surge 6to
8 feet, damage moderate.
Category 3: Pressure 27.91
inches to 28.49 inches, winds
from 111 mnph to 130 mph, storm
surge 9 to 12 feet, damage exten-
sive.
Category 4: Pressure 27.17
inches to 27.90 inches, winds
from 131 mph to 155 mph, storm
surge 13 feet to 18 feet, damage
extreme.
Category 5: Pressure less than
27.17 inches, winds greater than
155 mph, storm surge higher than
18 feet. Damage Catastrophic.

Are you prepared for a hurricane?


As Floridians watch weather
reports about approaching tropi-
cal storms, the reality of hurricane
season is once more upon us. Are
you ready for a hurricane?
Keep your car's gas tank full.
Don't let it get below half a tank
without refilling. When a hurri-
cane watch is declared, there may
be a gas shortage. If you plan to
evacuate, you will need enough
gasoline to get you out of the hur-
ricane area.
If you live in a low-lying area
or a home that was damaged' by
the 2004 storms and has not been
repaired, you should make plans
to stay elsewhere during a storm.
Depending on the severity of the
storm, mobile home dwellers
may be asked to evacuate. Make
plans now to stay with friends, rel-
atives or a hotel. Use the county


s hurricane shelters as a last
resort. Shelters provide protection
to save your life, but are usually
crowded and uncomfortable. If
you do go to a shelter, you will
need to take your own bedding as
you will have to sleep on the floor.
Keep cash on hand. If you
have to evacuate, you will need
cash. If the power is out, the ATM
machines will not work and
banks will be closed. Don t wait
until the last minute to get cash,
as the ATM machines may run
out.
Buy extra batteries for all
battery operated items you will
want to use if power is out. This
includes flashlights, radios, televi-
sions and battery-operated toys.
Make sure you have the right size
batteries for each item. If you
haven t put batteries in .the


radio in more than a year, you
may forget if it takes "C" or "D"
cell batteries. Make' a list before
you shop.
Put all important documents
(insurance documents, birth cer-
tificates, marriage license, auto
titles, etc.) in a waterproof bag or
box and place it where you can'
easily find it so you can take it
with you if you have to evacuate.
Document your possessions,
with a list and with photos or
videotape. Take photos of home 6
inside and out and any other
buildings on your property.
Should your home be destroyed,
you will need proof of what was
lost to show to the insurance
company. Put the list and photos
with your other important dbcu-
ments.
Decide in advance what you


will do with animals if a hurricane
is headed your way. If you plan to
evacuate and take pets with you,
make sure you have a place for
them. Pets are not allowed at hur-
'ricane shelters, but some hotels
do allow guests to bring pets.
Livestock (horses and cattle) are
generally safer out in an open
field than in a barn. If animals are
in a barn and the barn collapses,
they can be trapped or crushed.
Left in an open field, horses and
cattle with use their own instincts
to survive 6 most just put their
backs to the wind and keep eat-
ing. If possible, mark livestock
(for example, with a waterproof
tag attached to a halter) and pho-
tograph animals to help identify
lost animals should fences be
destroyed by falling trees.

Preparation is



key to surviving



storm season


The American Red Cross advis-
es hurricane disaster kits should
include the following items:
First aid kit and essential
medications.
Canned food and can open-
er.
At least three gallons of
water per person (that is just min-
imal drinking water for drinking
for three days 6 you will need
more water cooking or washing)
Protective clothing, rainwear
Bedding or sleeping bags.
Battery-powered radio,
flashlight, and extra batteries.
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members.
Written instructions on how
to turn off electricity, gas and
water if authorities advise you to
do so. (Remember, you'll need a
professional to turn them back
on.)
Change of clothes for all
family 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
running water to wash dishes)
Chainsaw (to cut up fallen
tree limbs to make them easier to


move)
Battery operated
campai fan
Gas grill with extra supply of
propane gas (to cook food from
the freezer before it spoils)
Extra cans of gasoline for
your vehicle (if electricity is out,
gas pumps will not work)
Plastic garbage bags (these
can be used to protect books,
photo albums and other items
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 windows after a storm,
etc. In the summer of 2004, some
homeowners used Duct tape as a
temporary fix to repair a roof, and
keep the rain out until roofers
could be found.)
Insect repellent 6 standing
water after a hurricane breeds
mosquitoes
Camera, film. (if not digital)
and batteries 6 you will want to
take pictures of damages to docu-
ment it for insurance claims
before making emergency repairs

each resident. Goals are estab-
lished on a daily basis and new
goals are consistently set in place
as certain goals are accom-
plished.
It is a non-stop cycle of goal
setting, encapsulated by educa-
tional tools. From keeping their
"sample" checkbooks balanced
at the general store, to checking
grammar on their menus and
requisition forms, to being pro-
vided with a dedicated education
system, which has proven to
raise their reading levels by more
-than one grade from their time of
arrival, education and self
esteem activities are everywhere.
The children go home every
six weeks and experience "day
trips" often. Except for twice a
week, they receive their meals
indoors, have an indoor day-
room, and are educated indoors.
The overall environment is
geared towards social settings,
which most of these children
have had trouble adapting to
within their personal social set-
tings at home. They learn that
their behaviors not only have
consequences for themselves,
but for their community, as well.

services; including emergency
crisis counseling and resource
referral, among several others.
According to Miss Betanzos,
the Project involves door-to-
door service focused on making
hurricane relief and secure com-
munications available. One of
the primary goals during these
visits is to spread word about
the "Senior Connection," which
allows hurricane victims to stay
well-informed about hurricane
preparedness.
"The Senior .Connection
helps a lot as a resource for sen-
iors to be able to call, and to
know who to call, while prepar-
ing for hurricane season, and in
cases of emergency," said Miss
Betanzos. "It is so helpful and
important for these people to
know who to call," added Miss
Duarte.

tal Health Clinic, Inc., by dis-

non-profit organization that will
seek to establish a private founda-
tion for creating the supplemental
income through various communi-
ty events, which may include golf
tournaments or similar projects
that have seen local success.
The firm's traditional approach
starts by acting as an "extension of
management" by conducting a
preliminary survey of community
members to assess the resources
available to a potential fundraising
foundation. The survey is current
being conducted by Mr. Watters,
who has invited community mem-
bers to provide insight into the hos-
pital's image and to suggest ideas
for fundraising. The resulting infor-
mation will be used to determine
the goals of a private foundation,
specifically in terms of the.hospi-
tal's image and its financial needs
and goals.
According to Mr. Watters, the
foundation will also consider meth-
ods such as planned giving, which
could involve donors that can "add
significance to their lives and enjoy
the tax advantages of planned
gifts."
Marketing this option to the
community is a vital method of
encouraging donations to the hos-
pital, in the form of remembrances,
donations in lieu of flowers, and
various other mean of fundraising,
according to the Watters and Asso-
ciates website (http://www.watter-
sandassociates.com).


,A presentation by Watters and
Associates is expected to take place
at the Hendry County Hospital
Authority Board meeting on Thurs-
day, July 7th at the HRMC confer-
ence room in Clewiston.
As the consulting process devel-
ops and community volunteers are
gathered, the hospital remains
wary of its internal financial situa-
tion. At the upcoming July 7th
meeting of Hospital Board, it will
expect to approve a report from
HRMC Chief Financial Officer Nick
Braccino, who reports that for the
month of May the hospital record-
ed an operating gain of $132,000,
compared to a budgeted loss of
$7,000. In addition, overall rev-
enues were reported over budget
$23,000, and overall expenses were
under budget $116,000.
Other programs on the hospital
board's agenda include a swing
bed project, which will involve new
equipment, as well as an early-out
program, which will reduce
expenses from self-pay follow-ups.

also credited Project HOPE for

mitment of the Eckerd staff. It's a

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
announced last week that he has
taken legal action against a Palm
Beach County telemarketer for vio-
lating Florida's "Do Not Call" law.
A lawsuit filed in Pam Beach
County Circuit Court alleges that
Majestic Mortgage LLC made at
least eight telephone calls to Florida
residents on the state's "Do Not
Call" list during the past four
months. Moreover, the company is
accused of playing recorded mes-
sages when residents answered the
phone, which is a separate viola-
tion of Florida law.
"Consumers who join the pro-
gram are entitled to be spared the
intrusion of commercial telemar-
keting calls, and we are committed
to seeing that their privacy is pro-
tected," Bronson said.
The legal action seeks an injunc-


tion prohibiting Majestic Mortgage
from any future calls to residents on
the "Do Not Call" list and fines of up
to $10,000 for each violation involv-
ing the calls it made to prohibited
telephone numbers.
Bronson's department has col-
lected or obtained judgments for
more than $1 million against com-
panies that have called residents on
the list, and several such legal
actions are pending in courts
throughout the state.
The Commissioner encourages
Floridians to join the program,
which prohibits most commercial
telemarketers from calling num-
bers on the list. For more informa-
tion about the program, con-
sumers can call the department's
toll-free hotline 1 800 HELP FLA
(435-7352) or visit the Division of
Consumer Services' website at

Citrus canker found near Fort Pierce


UF scientist detect


FORT PIERCE, Fla. Citrus
canker, one of the most destructive
diseases affecting Florida's $9 bil-
lion citrus industry, has been found
in a University of Florida citrus
research grove at UF's Indian River
Research and Education Center, or
IRREC, near Fort Pierce.
The discovery, confirmed
Thursday by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Plant Industry,
will likely require officials to destroy
all of the citrus trees in .IRREC's
groves, halting all citrus research
projects there, said Brian Scully,
director of the center and a profes-
sor of horticulture with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, or UF/IFAS.
"This canker infection, though
contained in the early stages, will
temporarily halt all of our citrus
research projects at the center,"
Scully said. "It will take us a num-
ber of years to recover, but ulti-
mately this setback will offer us a
fresh start and improved groves in
which to conduct research. How-
ever, we will continue to conduct
our collaborative research in com-
mercial groves with the coopera-
tion of private industry."
The disease, caused by bacteria
in the genus Xanthomonas, can
affect all citrus varieties, including
grapefruit, oranges and tangerines,
which are grown at IRREC, Scully
said. Trees affected by the disease
develop small brown lesions on
leaves, stems and fruit. Citrus
canker eventually reduces tree pro-
ductivity if left unchecked.
IRREC employees discovered
the outbreak Monday during a vol-
untary grove inspection, he said.
UF/IFAS officials immediately
reported the discovery to the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry, which is
responsible for the state's Citrus
Canker Eradication Program.
UF/IFAS will cooperate fully
with DPI to address the situation,
said Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice

Hector Solis, a groundskeeper with the University of Flori-
da's Indian River Research and Education Center in Fort
Pierce, burns grapefruit trees infected with citrus canker in a
research grove at the center Friday, July 1, 2005. Workers
discovered the outbreak Monday, and officials will likely
have to destroy all citrus trees at the center, temporarily halt-
ing more than two dozen experiments. Caused by bacteria,

ing Florida's $9 billion citrus industry.


president for agriculture and natu-
ral resources. Mapping efforts by
the Citrus Canker Eradication Pro-
gram will establish the extent of the.
infection and determine which
groves will be affected.
"Our personnel will assist DPI in
identifying all infected trees,"
Cheek said. "After that, we'll cope
with the loss of any trees that may
occur. We now understand a little
better what citrus growers go
through when they face a canker
outbreak."
State citrus canker eradication
procedures require the destruction
of all infected citrus trees that are
found, as well as any citrus trees
located within 1,900 feet of infected
citrus trees, Scully said. These
measures minimize the chances
the highly contagious disease will


spread to other sites.
Currently, six IRREC faculty and
their collaborators from other
UF/IFAS facilities are conducting
more than two dozen experiments
in the research groves, some using
trees planted 30 to 50 years ago, he
said.
Citrus research efforts at IRREC
emphasize plant breeding, ento-
mology, pathology and virology,
soil and water science, plant nutri-
tion and irrigation and post-harvest
physiology, Scully said.
"It is difficult to quantify the loss
in terms of time, monetary value
and the potential impact that our
research findings have on the
statewide citrus industry," Scully
said.
In addition, citrus research pro-
grams at the U.S. Department of


Agriculture Horticultural Research
Laboratory adjacent to IRREC are
vulnerable to the effects of the
canker infection in the IRREC
groves, said Harold Browning,
statewide coordinator for UF citrus
programs in teaching, research and
extension.
Scully said he believes the dis-
ease did not reach IRREC via
human activity. "Our facility has
been strictly following the precau-
tions recommended by the Divi-
sion of Plant Industry and used by
growers," he said.
The bacteria that cause citrus
canker can spread on air currents,
in rainwater,; and on people, ani-
mals, plants and farm equipment,
Scully said.
Ongoing canker sanitation and
decontamination efforts will be
stepped up. at UF's other citrus
research units, including the Citrus
Research and Education Center in
Lake Alfred and the Southwest
Florida Research and Education
Center in Immokalee, said Brown-
ing, who directs the Lake Alfred
center.
"There is no reason to suspect
that citrus canker would have
reached other IFAS facilities by way
of the Indian River Research and
Education Center, thanks to the
many safeguards we have in
place," Browning said. "But with
canker in many areas of the state,
ongoing vigilance is necessary."
UF/IFAS citrus researchers
statewide have been developing
plans to react to a.canker find that
involved UF/IFAS research plant-
ings, Browning said.
"Florida citrus growers rely on
our expertise to deliver improved
citrus varieties, to address emerg-
ing citrus challenges, and to help
growers implement better man-
agement practices year after year,"
he said. "This setback will not affect
our commitment to work with the
industry to help solve their prob-
lems."

Celebrate July with the thrill of the summer grill


The arrival of summer brings
with it reasons to celebrate; and
many people honor the warm-
season tradition by firing up the
grill and hosting festive gather-
ings with family and friends. And
with many Americans wanting
to maintain healthier, slimmer
figures during the summer sea-
son, grilled foods can offer
healthy eating alternatives to
high-calorie, high-fat choices
that sabotage weight-loss plans.
But grillers beware: Grilled
doesn't always equal low calo-
rie. Just because it's made on
the grill and not fried in a pan
doesn't mean it constitutes a
healthy meal. While grilling is a
healthier way to prepare meals,
don't get tricked into thinking
that it's always the best option.
The key to delicious, healthy
grilling is smart substitutions.
For example, swap burgers
made from extra lean ground
beef or turkey, or even veggie
burgers, for the classic versions,
And turkey franks are a great
alternative to beef franks.
The same goes for traditional
sides, such as chips: choose
baked over regular.
Oftentimes, plain produce,
such as corn, squash or zucchi-
ni, can be turned into a fabulous
treat by adding a few calorie-free.
spices or nonfat cooking spray
