Fate of Brown Sugar discussed


By Bill Fabian
HARLEM The conse-
quences of the shooting death
of Stanley Hughley during the
Brown Sugar Festival have
resounded within the commu-
nity of Harlem, which has been
moved to seriously consider the
possibility of making major
changes to the annual festival.
Some have even suggested that
the festival should be canceled.
A public hearing was held at
the Harlem Civic Center on


Monday, July 25 to provide a
forum for discussion among
Harlem residents about how
the traditional Brown Sugar Fes-
tival should be handled in the
future.
Approximately 60 communi-
ty residents and county employ-
ees were present. Although
there was a general agreement
among most participants that
something needed to be
changed to eliminate the appar-'
ent dangerous conditions of the
festival, there were varying


degrees as to how 'much
change was needed, and who
was responsible for effecting
the transition.
The meeting was coordinat-
ed by Hendry County Commis-
sioner Janet Taylor, who wel-
comed all present to participate
in the open microphone discus-
sion. Also in attendance were
County Commissioner Bill Mad-
dox, Hendry County Clerk of
Courts Barbara Butler, and
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
Press Secretary Nick Smith.


Summer heat: Cooling off at the pool


Independent Newspapers/ldeybis Gonzalez
Not only the children enjoy the community pool and water park but their parents do
too. "Hey mommy, look at what I can do."


Sheriff Ronnie Lee was not
present.
Commissioner Taylor
opened the discussion concern-
ing the Brown Sugar Festival,
stating "Some are against, and
some are not against." She also
extended her condolences to
members of the White family
for the loss of Stanley Hughley.
Hughley's uncle, Keith
White, was the first to partici-
pate in the discussion. "I'm not
totally against holding the
Brown Sugar Festival, as long as


it can be held in a safer way," he
said. "I remember days when it
wasn't so dangerous, and I just
wish it could get.back to the
way it was," he continued.
April White, Hughley's aunt,
presented a "community
response" poll of Harlem resi-
dents taken before the meeting,
asking whether they are in sup-
port of canceling *the Brown
Sugar Festival. The results,

still sought-


By Bill Fabian
HARLEM The investigation
of the fatal shooting of former
Clewiston resident Stanley Mau-
rice Hughley, Jr., during this
year's Brown Sugar Festival has
yet to produce any substantial
leads.
There still have been no
arrests made in connection with
the incident, although family and
friends of Hughley remain hope-
ful that the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office, in cooperation with
the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE), will find
and arrest the suspected shooter.
Family memBers have beEnr
vigilant, as law enforcement oifl.
cials have worked to find all pos-
sible angles in the investigation,
and have been mostly pleased
with the progress of the county


and state agencies.
"We feel very happy with the
investigation. They're working
hard to find out what hap-
pened," said April White, the vic-
tim's aunt. "The Hendry County
Sheriff's Office has been very
good to our family, and they have
always been willing to talk to us
and keep us updated on the
progress of the investigation,"
she said.
,As the investigation contin-
ues, the FDLE is advertising a
homicide reward notice for any
information regarding the shoot-
ing death of 19-year-old Hughley.
According to Special Agent
Matt Walsh of the FDLE, no
arrests have been made of any
suspected shooters. Additional

LABELLE The Bonita Bay
Group has stepped forward with
a $30,000 gift to the Edison Col-
lege Foundation to help the col-
lege hire a full-time professor for
its future Hendry/Glades cam-
pus and further the institution's
goal of delivering high-quality
education to Hendry and Glades
County students. The contribu-
tion will fund nearly one-third of
the cost of hiring a full-time pro-
fessor.
"This donation is a huge step
toward brighter futures anid
additional educational opportu-
nities for .students living in
LaBelle, Moore Haven and
Clewiston, and builds upon Edi-
son's more than 43-year com-,

Kenneth Walker, district presi-
dent of Edison College, "First,
the company in partnership
with Bryan Paul of the Paul Fam-

step further by giving us the lead
gift to enable us to hire our first
full-time instructor. We are very
grateful."

Biological age vs.

DENTURES
BEST PRICES SAME DAY


There's a commercial on tele-
- vision showing a bikini-clad
woman demonstrating an exer-
cise machine. She proudly pro-
claims that she is 50 years old
and is in the best shape of her
life.
Thanks to modern health
care, Americans are living longer
and have more incentive to take
better care of themselves. Exer-
cise and proper diet can help
you not only live longer, but also
to stay healthy and active as you
get older.
A few years ago, I noticed a
number of researchers use the
term "biological age" as
opposed to "chronological age".
Your "biological age" deals with
how fast your body is aging, gen-
erally based on how well you are
treating it.
There are a number of differ-
ent tests the various researchers
use to determine biological age.
SMost include height, weight,
blood pressure, health history,
ability to do exercises (such as if
you can touch your toes or how
many sit-ups you can do without
stopping) and lifestyle factors
such as whether or not you
smoke, how often you eat fried
foods, etc.
I used hypothetical profiles to
compare, what lifestyle differ-
ences can mean to a person's
lifespan.
For example, a 50-year-old
non-smoker, who is 5 feet, 5
inches tall and weighs 130
pounds, exercises for at least 30
minutes five times a week,
avoids fast food restaurants and
in general follows a healthy
lifestyle might have a "biological
age" of 41.
A 25-year-old smoker, who is
5 feet, 5 inches tall, weights 150
pounds, rarely makes time for
exercise and eats at fast food
restaurants five times a week,
might have a "biological age" of
36.
36'At this rate in a few years, the
25-year-old might have a "bio-
logical age" older than the 50-
year-old.
In reviewing the factors the
researchers use to determine
i "biological health," I found
some interesting items. Factors
that might add years to your life
Include "

weight loss and gain can be hard
on \our body. If you are over-
weight, a sensible, healthy diet
can safely help you lose up to
two pounds a week. If you are
losing weight at a faster rate, you
should be under a doctor's care.

pare yourself for the day. (This
does not mean it is all right to go
back to sleep.)
High protein snacks mid-
morning and mid-afternoon can
help keep your blood sugar con-
stant and keep you energized.
Sugary snacks can give you an
immediate burst of energy but
then your blood sugar will drop
even more, leaving you even
more tired.
A little caffeine can be good
for you, but more than two serv-
ings a day can be harmful.
Remember a soft drink may
have as much caffeine as a cup.
of coffee so read the labels.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. Thiss espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy".

RISING COSTS: I'm calling about another thing that has gone up in
Clewiston. The utilities have gone up double. People cannot afford to
pay their bills especially at this time of year when things are slow. They
have no jobs and people get laid off and get less money. How can peo-
ple pay their bills with less money? There is no health, no pay, you get
shut off. It's as simple as that. It's ridiculous. You can't live here without
electric with the heat. We have to have some kind of air conditioning.
It's not a luxury, it's a necessity. Something has to be done. There has
to be another way. It's a health hazard. People can die of a heatstroke
without having a place to cool off.

Michelle Rayburn


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Q: What is your name?
A: My name is Michelle Ray-
burn.
Q: Where were you bom?
A: ,1 was born in Pahokee,
Florida.
Q: What do you do?
A: I am a United States Postal
Mail Carrier serving the Clewis-'
ton area for 10 years now.
Q: Why do you do what you
do?
A: I do it because it's an out-
side job, it's funi to be out, and
'not stuck behind a desk all day.
It pays well, actually, the pay and
benefits you can't beat. The
USPS always was a place of
business that everyone always,
always wanted to work for. That
was not in my plans, but it hap-
pened and am thankful for the
job I ended up getting. Also, I
love meeting new people, and I
love the people I see each day in
my route. Oh, I have my own
route now, and am very happy
about it. For the first eight years I
switched around town so, it
gave me the opportunity to meet
mostly everybody in town. Now
I have my own route ahd I love
the people, as far as business
and residences that I deliver mail
to each day.
Q: If you had an opportunity
to do something else what

A: I would have to say nurs-
ing, because I love to help peo-

Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I tend to be a little serious,
but very energetic at the same
time, am a ery devoted mother
and wife. I love my children, and
I love the communir. their 'ie in.

Independent Newspapers/Ideybis Gonzalez


Q: What scares you? ,
A: I guess the thing that
scares me the most is how the
world is turning out, for exam-
ple, how children are being
abducted from their own hous-
es, that's rmy biggest fear. I don't
want to call them bad people in
the world, but I don't know
what else to call them. I guess I'll
say crime scares me.
Q: What is your favorite
song?
A: I would have to say,
"Friends" by MichlaelW. Smith.
Q: Why is that your favorite
song? u "
A: It holds a lot of memories.
I have a lot of friends that pertain
to that song. We used it growing
up for a lot of things, they always
stuck to me. As a matter of fact I
have that song as a ring tone in
my cell phone to identify certain
girlfriends when they call me.
Q: What irks you?
A: That here in South Florida,
so many people you walk by and
don't even take the time to stop
and say hello, or at least wave at
you. If you were to travel ito say
South Georgia, everyone, stops
and says hi, hello, they are very
friendly and you don't find that
as much in South Florida.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dear to you?
A: I had a grandmother, that
was brought up here in Clewis-
ton. She went to school here,
she was actually, on onei occa-
sion, she'was in the Cleviston
News in some photos when U.S':
Sugar first started the Sugar Fes-
tival in. 1940. I actually have
those pictures. So many memo-
ries of her are very dear to me.
Her name was Edna Leiter.

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Remember the song words,
"Count your many blessings,
name them one by one. Count
your many blessings, see what
, God has done!" This last week I
. experienced something that
helped remind me of the many
blessings that I sometimes take
for granted.
My wife Kathy and I spent a
week at Camp Pioneer, a special
camp experience for mentally
challenged individuals. Set up
about 15 years ago, individuals
from around the state volunteer
to give up one week of their lives
to be a "buddy" to a mentally
challenged individual. These spe-
cial buddies spend their week
helping their campers have a
wonderful week of camp activi-
ties, crafts, Bible studies, and
family fellowship activities with
other campers.
The tragic part is that the num-
ber of campers is limited to the
number of volunteer buddies,


and there is always a waiting list.
The blessing is that most of those
who are able to come have one
of their best experiences of their
year at the camp. As a matter of
fact, several started packing in
March for the July camp. It's that
important in their lives.
It is also
important in
the lives of
their family or
caretakers.
One set of par-
ents shared
that they had
not had a
break from
care taking for Pastor
35 years before John Hicks
their "child", Jo
started coming to Camp Pioneer.
Another mother shared with tears
in her eyes; "Thank you so much
for having this camp." I was hum-
bled.
Many times we take the sim-
ple things for granted. I was with
these special people for a week,
and was well loved. But at the


end of the week I was physically
and emotionally exhausted. It
was a good exhaustion, but the
only way I could do it 24 hours a
day, seven days .a week, for every
day of the year would be by the
grace and strength of God. I
imagine that's how many of these
caretakers do it. May God contin-=
ue to bless them and all of you
who have this special ministry!
During the week, we have
Bible studies, chapel time, swim-
ming, camp games, crafts, and
lots of fun. But what is really spe-
cial is the love freely shared. It
doesn't matter whether you are
tall, short, big, small, red or yel-
low, black or white, or even
green or purple, you are freely
accepted and seen as something
special. Would that we could do
that everywhere!
Without exception, those of
us who serve as buddies receive
more that we give. God's love is a
lot like that. On a.whim, I took a
number of campers out in a field
away from trees, buildings, and


people, and let,them' drive the
camp golf cart. I didn't realize
how much that five minutes of
driving meant to some of the
campers. Several shared that that
was the high point of their week.
Again I was humbled. Many
times it is the little things we do
that make the most difference in
the lives of others things that
we take for granted!

The challenge for us is to keep
looking for ways to reach out to
others and touch them with
moments of caring and sharing.
Who.knows how much that five-
minute sacrifice out of our time
will mean to those we reach out
to? Who knows how much God
will use the little things we do to
make a big difference? Simple
things can mean much and make
a difference. In the love of God,
for the love of God, reach out and
touch a life and remember
that 'even the little things become
much'wt1bn placed in the Mas-
ter'shand::


London, Oklahoma City and Jerusalem -the new one


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Jesus spoke with great anguish
when He spoke to the crowds
about Jerusalem, "0 Jerusalem,
Jerusalem, killing the prophets
and stoning those who are sent to
you! How often would I have
gathered your children together
as hen gathers her bro6d under
her wings, and you would not."
(Matthew 23:37)
There is great disappointment
and sadness when he looks at the
place that is supposed to be a
beacon to darkened world and to
found that God was rejected
there. Those who were destined
to lead were killing the prophets
and killing their true leaders,
I tried to listen to the "message
beneath the message" these past
few weeks from London as the
British were first shocked by the


terrorist bombings, and then
shocked when they learned that
these horrors
didn't come
from foreign
agents but
from children
that were born
and grew up -
among them. *
Those that '
were nurtured
and educated
in a life of free- Rev. Samuel
dom and S.Thomas
democracy,,
neighbors and friends of those
who were, attacked, were the
ones to be accused of betraying
what was given to them.
I remember 'the shock here
when the Oklahoma City federal
building was bombed and the
first reaction was that "an enemy
has done this." Surely it must have
been foreign terrorists or enemy

saboteurs. .There was a similar
shock when it turned out to be a
homegrown young man who
was born and grew up among us
- who went to our schools and
served in our military.
Terry Nichols didn't illegally
cross our borders or take training
in a terrorist camp in the Mid-East.
I can envision people in England
now saying to the souls of those
attackers who were killed in the
four bombings in London, "How
couldyou?"
I can vision the Lord recalling
his hopes for Jerusalem that were
dashed when all of the people
thought, "We're the best" and
"We've got it right," only to ignore
the prophets or destroy them. We
are a great people, not because of
our great security networks or our
might, but because we have a bet-
ter way of life. At some level, we
can prevail because we bear
armor or better weapons.
I have noticed certain zeal
among some second-generation


immigrants, born in another
country than their parents and
with an imagined mystique about
the place that was left behind. In
the same way that orphaned chil-
dren brought up in faith, each
time we fail to share the lessons of
our heritage, we set the stage.
I believe that we have the
answers for those-who suppress
freedoms, incite terror, sow dis-
content, cause hatred. The
answers, though, come from re-
affirming what we take for grant-
ed and, more importantly, why.
The early Christians who over-
threw empires and changed the
known world did so by living their
beliefs, sharing them, demon-
strating them, welcoming those
who had doubts, giving them-
selves for their faith Jesus' disap-
pointment and despair was vindi-
cated, the new Jerusalem was
seen as it should have been and
shined as a beacon in the hopes
and hearts of those who changed
the world. That's our call too.

Glade Police Department urges all
local business owners- and resi-
dents alike to take a closer look at
their money. If citizens are not
careful, officers say, they may find
themselves the victims of a coun-
terfeit scheme.
A recent rash of counterfeit
$20 bills has begun popping up
throughout the city and the crimi-
nals behind the act have so far
gone without being caught.
While the police department
continues its investigation in an
effort to solve the crimes, they
hope that citizens will use caution
when receiving currency and they
recommend a few simple steps to
avoid becoming one of the crimi-
nals' latest victims.

means that the criminals have
gotten away with approximately
$500 in free merchandise from
local business owners.
Lieutenant Robert Wheelihan
with the police department is
hoping that the criminals will stop
doing what they are doing, but it
does not seem likely. There are
currently no hard leads for the
police to follow, only the trail of
counterfeit bills cashed at conven-
ience stores and grocery stores
throughout the city.

The July 19, arrest was the
result of an investigation conduct-

pie icoior copies t at closely

er inspection reveals the truth.
"We encourage everyone to
pay closer attention to their cur-
rency, especially $20 bills," said
Lieutenant Wheelihan.
The fake bills seem to come
from the same source, with three
unique serial numbers common
among the bills. The paper the
fake bills are printed is not of
good quality, according to Lieu-
tenant Wheelihan, and whoever
is making them seems to be
crumpling the bills to make them
look more worn than if they had
just been printed from a copier.
Taking the time to search for

According to Lieutenant
Wheelihan, it is not the first time
the police department has had to
break up a counterfeit scheme. A
few years ago, the police arrested
individuals from out of town who
were found to have a similar oper-
ation out of their home. As soon
as the suspects were'arrested, the
counterfeit bills stopped as well.
At this point it is not certain
whether those individuals are
involved in this case.
Mr. Wheelihan asks residents
with knowledge of the crime to
contact the Belle Glade Police
Department at 996-7271 with
more information. You may

and seizure follows closely on the
heels of a $63 million drug bust in'
January of 2005, which is one of
the biggest marijuana busts on
record in the state of Florida in the
same area of the county and is a
further statement of Sheriff Lee's
goal to drive illegal drugs from
Hendry County.


Man sentenced for using Internet to prey upon children


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that an Orange County man was
sentenced today to 20 years in state
prison and was designated as a sex
offender after traveling to Polk
County to meet a young boy for a
pre-arranged liaison.
Walter Hammel, who was con-
victed last month of 15 cgunts of
using a computer to prei upon,a
child over the Internet, was
unaware that the person with
whom he communicated over the
Internet was actually an undercov-


er law enforcement officer.
In addition to the prison term,
Hammel, 52, was also sentenced
to 10 years probation. The case
was prosecuted by the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide Pros-
ecution, which has specific juris-
diction to prosecute cases involv-
ing section 847.0135(3), Use of a
Computer to Seduce a Child over
[he Inierrert The case x\as tried in
PolkCount '
"Prison is where these preda-
tors belong," said Crist. "I com-
mend Circuit Judge Harvey Korn-


stein for taking this crime seriously
and protecting Florida's children
from this sex offender's potential
future acts."
The case began in October
2003 when an officer, working with
a Central Florida task force on
Internet crimes against children,
monitored an Internet chatroom.
Harnrrel struck up an online con-
er.-r-;.iior i\'itri the agent, who he
believed was a 13-year-old boy
named "Larry". Over a period of
time, Hammel attempted to lure
"Larry" to his home in Orange


County, ,and at one point sent
pornographic images of young
boys. After a month of online con-
versations, Hammel traveled to a
Wal-Mart in Haines City intending
to pick up "Larry" and take him to
his home in Winter Garden.
Hammel was arrested when. he
approached a decoy arranged by
agents.
Among the agencies involved in
the joint investigation were the
Polk County Sheriff's Department
and the Eagle Lake Police Depart-
ment.

Thursday, July 28, 2005Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 7


By Jack Wolff
As told to MaryAnn Morris
OKEECHOBEE "My dad,
Jessie 0. Wolff came to Okee-
chobee in 1920 from Laurens,
South Carolina. He was a licensed
pharmacist and during World War
1I, he served as an army medic in
France. When he came back, he
got talking to a friend of his who
lived in the Florida Panhandle, Tom
Conley. They got to talking about
the Okeechobee area and decided
to come down here and look
things over. He must have liked
what he saw because he soon had
a drugstore at the corner of S.W.
Fourth Avenue and Park Street
Called Park Drugs.
"They called druggists 'pill-
rollers' back in the 1920s, but the
town doctors weren't always avail-
able and when there was no doctor
around, people would come and
ask my dad to help.
"My dad went to Emory Univer-
sity before the war, and finished
when he came back, while my
mother went to Florida State Col-
lege for Women in Tallahassee. I
think they must have met while
they were in school.
"My mother's family was from
Quincy, Florida up in the Panhan-
dle. That's where they were mar-
ried. I remember we used to drive
Peavine Trail going back and forth
to visit when I was little and my
mother's folks would drive ddwn
to visit us.
"My parents were welcomed as
newly-weds in Okeechobee and
built their house on the west side of
South Parrott Avenue. My brother
and I were born in that house. He
was born in 1924. I was born in
1926. Our parents used to hunt the
property between the railroad and
where the courthouse was built in
the 1920s. We kept milk cows in a
pasture near the house, where
Captain D's is now and my brother
and I would have to milk them
before we went to.school.
'After school, I'd have to go the
Post Office for my dad to pick up
our mail. The Post Office was in the
north end of the Southland Hotel
on the northeast corner of Park and
Parrott then. It was never locked -
the doors always stood open. I
remember kicking cow patties out
the door after free-rafiging cows,
had wandered inside.
"Back then, Okeechobee .was
promoted to, be theChicago of the.
South. There were grand, plans
made. There are still remains of
concrete sidewalks out along State
Road 70 west of town. But the rail-
road went a different way, and those
plans never did come to anything.
"I came across a letterwritten to
my dad asking how things were in
Okeechobee. His answer was that
they needed more roads, better
housing and more tourist camps.
Seems like things still haven't
changed that much.
"During the Depression, things
were bad here as they were every-
where. I found a stack of letters
from my mother to her uncle in
Princeton, New Jersey saying how
bad things were. I remember my
dad going by Lewis Scharfschw-
erdt's hardware store on his bicycle
one day, and Lewis was out front
and they got to talking about how
bad things were.
"Lewis had a lot of china dishes
stacked out front he was trying to
sell and no one was buying. No one
had any money. I remember Lewis
and my dad taking those dishes,

The pharmacist and his new wife were welcomed by this
unique prescription written by Doc Anner in 1922.


Special to Independent
Newspapers/Jack Wolff
"My dad, Jessie Wolff, would
ride his bike around town.
This is probably from the
1940s or 50s with the Waffel
House in the background. It
was next door to his drug
store, just down from Scharf-
schwerdt's Hardware Store."
one by one, taking turns, smashing
those dishes on the ground and
laughing. It was bad!
"Later on I worked in my dad's
drugstore on Saturdays soda-jerk-
ing. You had to draw the seltzer,
then the syrup by hand. The soda
fountain was a kind of hangout on
Saturday. In the evening the Indi-
ans could come in from Brighton. I
remember they loved strawberry
sodas! Strawberry sodas were their
favorite and mine, too! It was the
saddest day of my life when that
drugstore was sold in 1950.
"During the 1940s my dad start-
ed buying property 10 and 20 acres
at a time, finally accumulating 400
acres, at the end of what is now
Wolff Road. First we ran beef cattle
out there, later on we went to dairy
because it was more profitable. We
had bought i,-il themit,. W rd were
working on building the barn
when those darn heifers started
coming fresh. We hadn't planned
on that so soon, so for about two
weeks, until the barn was built, we
had to put those heifers in a loading
chute to milk them. We were real
glad to see that barn finished!
"Now you might wofider how
to get a public road named after
you. Well, you buy property at the
end of a dirt track and then you do a
public service. Kids used to go back
there to park and they'd get stuck.
So we pulled them out, Never said
a word about it, but the road got
named after us somehow!
S"Edith Joiner had a clothing.
store in the 1980s. I needed a suit
for something, but I didn't have any
money. She fitted the suit and said,
'That's okay, I'll send you a bill.' I
never got a bill for the suit until a
year later. It had been so long, I had
forgotten all about it. But that's
what people are like here. There's
still trust and neighborliness. You
don't find that many places any-
more." .*

Outdoors women workshops planned


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has two workshops
planned for women who want to
spend a weekend learning a vari-
ety of outdoor skills.
The FWC has a Sept. 9-11
"Becoming anr Outdoors-
iWoman" workshop scheduled
for Ocala and a Nov. 18-20 work-
shop for West Palm Beach.
The FWC invites women, 18
and older, to attend the work-
shops to learn or improve their
outdoors skills and enjoy a few
recreational activities. In four,
three-and-a-half-hour sessions,
workshops teach skills associated
with hunting/shooting, fishing
and non-consumptive (canoeing,
camping, etc.) activities at all lev-
els of physical activity.
The Becoming an Outdoors
Woman program offers a fun and
supportive atmosphere to experi-


ment and enjoy the camaraderie
of others who want to learn about
Florida's great outdoors.
Although it is designed with
women in mind, the camp is
open to anyone who wants to
learn in a comfortable, non-
threatening, non-competitive,
hands-on atmosphere. The
camp's instructors strive to make
participants feel at ease.
"Patience is the secret to the
success of our Becoming an Out-
- doors Woman program," said
Lynne Hawk, director of the pro-
gram. "Oir instructors are here to
guide people through the activi-
ties. There is no intimidation."
The workshops will take place
at the Ocala Conservation Center
in the Ocala National Forest and at
Pine Jog's Everglades Youth Con-
servation Camp in the J.W Cor-
bett Wildlife Management Area
(northwest Palm Beach County).


They are rustic summer camp
facilities with basic, modern
amenities. Lodging is dormitory
style, with meals served in the
cafeterias. Sessions will begin Fri-
day afternoon and end Sunday
with lunch.
The cost is $150.. However,
partial scholarships are available
for low-income participants.
Workshops are limited to 100 par-
ticipants on a first-come, first-
served basis.
Information about the work-
shop and registration is at

areas.
S The study, released July 20,
examined six bear populations
(Apalachicola, Ocala, Osceola,
Big Cypress, Eglin, and St. Johns
River) from February 2001 to June
2005. Scientists set up 7,000 snare
sites made of barbed wire strands
encircling a lure. Barbs snared
clumps of hair from bears as they
climbed through the wires' to get
to the lure.
Biologists then sent the hair
samples to an outside lab where
state-of-the-art genetic tech-
niques were used to determine
the sex of the bear and a DNA pro-
file. They used these data in popu-
lation models to generate popula-
tion estimates and to calculate
impact of road kills on bear popu-
lations.
The Wildlife Foundation of
Florida provided funding for the
genetic analysis component of
the study.
Tim Breault, director of the
FWC's Division of Habitat- and
Species Conservation, said, "The
study showed that, on average,
road-kill mortality rates for Florida


UVv-II L 1 jvt.^CZii-H1jm 1 tUjr j U ljt-uiiiiy 1ii^tV"_
similar impacts on bear popula-
tions, however.
Mr. Breault said the study
enabled FWC scientists to use
cutting-edge technology to gener-
ate the best population assess-
ment to date for bears in these
areas.
"It will be useful in assessing
the magnitude of the threat to
populations posed by motor vehi-
cles," he said. "The study shows
that, on average, 'road kills do not
pose a threat to Florida's. bear
populations, based on current
population estimates. However, if
habitat decreases and new roads
lead to increases in mortality
rates, we would need to re-evalu-
ate these conclusions."
The Florida black bear is on
the state's list of imperiled species
as "threatened". It is not listed on
the federal endangered or threat-
ened species lists.
"The Florida black bear, a
unique sub-species that occurs
primarily in Florida, once was
widely distributed throughout
Florida. Bears require large home
ranges and need ample habitat to


resumption.
This study focused on road
kills and did not directly address
issues such as nuisance bears and
bear hunting, Mr. Breault said.
"There is a wide range of opin-
ions regarding bear conservation.
To gain a better understanding of
public attitudes, opinions, and
perceptions regarding bears and
bear management, the FWC will
begin a survey in Florida later this
year."

offered at night, which is ideal for
the majority of students who work,
however, students pursuing associ-

math or science classes, needed
for technology-related careers,
must travel an hour to the Fort
Myers campus, about 40 miles
away.-
The new campus will be locat-

comments by the FDLE include the
promise that the investigation is
being "vigorously progressed".
According to Walsh, a suspect
has been identified, but HCSO and
FDLE are still in the process of track-
ing down the suspect, and addition-
al information was unavailable in
order to protect the investigation.
The attack occurred May 7 in the
evening-hours following the Brown
Sugar Festival.
According to a report by the
HCSO, Hughley was gunned down
after spending the day with family
members at the Brown Sugar Festi-
val. The crime was believed by
some to have been committed by
multiple assailants, who were able
to flee the scene on foot before
authorities arrived on site, accord-
ing to the initial reports from the
crime scene.
According to witnesses, multi-
ple assailants robbed and shot
Hughley as he was either exiting or
entering a vehicle parked at a house
S on Florida Avenue and Ninth Street
in Harlem.
The initial investigation was
headed by Marci Martinez of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office,
who was unavailable for comment

which were basically in the form
of a public petition, included 53
signatures from community
members who agreed that the
festival should be stopped,
including 36 who were Harlem
residents. Residents not in favor
of canceling the festival num-
bered 28, of which 20 were
Harlem residents.
The issue of canceling the
festival was clearly raised by the
poll, as well as by the White
family, but there was little more
discussion either for or against
the idea during the remainder of
the meeting. Instead, some
raised the idea of changing the
festival's venue.
Pastor Fred Gamble was
among those to suggest moving
the festival.,
"The area where the event is
being held is too small, there are
too many people in the area -
the event has reached the point
that people are relieving them-
selves in sight of children, in
people's front yards," he said.
'!The music at the festival is
getting worse and worse, with
absolutely despicable lyrics that
depict a destructive culture that
is being .acted out by the youth,
of this community," said Pastor
Gamble.
"The atmosphere is destruc-
tive; it causes men to act abu-
sively to -females. We must do
something to fix the festival, or I
,agree that we will have to even-
tually shut it down. For now, I.1

Under Edison College's time-
line, the first dean of Hendry
Glades Services will be appointed
in fall 2005, with the first full-time
faculty member coming on board
within the year with a salary fund-
ed through annual gifts and/or
endowments. On-site classes are
expected to begin in a temporary
facility in fall 2008 within the new
Hendry County community. The
first phase of the new campus is
expected to open in spring 2014,
and will be part of The Bonita Bay
Group community's Education Vil-
lage, a "main street" concept of
mixed residential and commercial
development, featuring public
lakes, walking trails and parks.
Walker said the 100,000-square-
foot facility project, expected to
cost $24 million to build, will be
funded through a capital campaign


on the progress of the investigation.
The investigation has since been
backed by the FDLE in order to

Patriotic quilters
A 4-H quilting camp was held at the youth center in Clewiston last week. Ten students
completed making very patriotic quilts. Pictured: Kelsie Hansen, Ashley White, Monica

agree that the festival should be
held in a different, bigger area,"
he said.
Reverend Gwen Patrick
agreed with the change of
venue. "In the last 20 years or so,
(the festival) has worked. It's
just not working anymore -
and it is not worth the life of one
person to keep going on like this
- this situation has to change.
Maybe moving the festival
would be a. good idea," she said.
Commissioner Maddox
expressed the need for security
at any event as something that
"has to, and should be paid for."
He added that it is too difficult
for an outside entity to move in,
on a certain area and be able to
completely control every indi-
vidual, equating the situation to
that experienced by U.S. troops
in Iraq.
Commissioner Taylor
informed those present that the
Hendry BOCC would appoint an
advisory panel of community
members who would deliberate
upon future plans for the Brown
Sugar Festival, and asked for vol-
unteers who wished to serve on
the committee to. come forward.'
Among those present Mon-
day, Reverend Patrick and Daniel
Paige volunteered to join the
committee.
"I want to be 70-something
and come back here and see the
festival going on like it always
has, with the same people I've
always seen here," said Paige..
' After a committee is formed,
the county will seek a recom-
mendation in order to decide
how to go about handling the
future plans for the Brown Sugar


Festival. According to Commis-
sioner Taylor, the committee will
be steered by County Attorney
Kate English.


The, committee will be
approved and put into action at
an upcoming meeting of the
Hendry County BOCC. .,

ciated with activity on or near
railroad crossings.
The video pointed out that
600 people die every year due to
trespassing on railroad tracks
and crossings. Graphic scenes of
kids with bikes nearly getting
killed by a train, teenagers drink-
ing and dying on the tracks in
the dark and shattered vehicles
that tried to race the train were
narrated by actual train engi-
neers who emotionally
described the tragedies associat-
ed with playing in the path of a
12 million-pound train.
"People think that the train
will stop or swerve out of the
way," but as Eaves pointed out,
"There is no steering wheel on a
train's locomotive."
"The train cannot get out of
your way; you have to get out of
its way. And fast," Eaves said..
The safety program stressed
Operation Lifesaver's motto -
Look, Listen and Live. A railroad
crossing sign, even those with-
out. active lights and gates,
means STOP. Drivers and pedes-
trians are supposed to stop, look
for trains and listen for warning
bells and horns.
According to Watson, "We
have a problem in our area with
young kids walking or playing
on the railroad tracks. Not only
is this against the law, it is tres-
passing, and it 'is extremely dan-
gerous. People do not realize
that it takes a loaded freight train
5,280 feet, a mile, to stop once
the emergency brakes are


engaged."
Both Eaves and Watson
pointed out that it is against the
law to trespass. onto railroad
tracks and crossings. It is against
the law to walk on or along rail-
road tracks and it is also illegal to
drive through or around the
cross buck gates -even if the
gate is malfunctioning. Drivers
are urged to report malfunction-
ing gates (there is a crossing ID
number and contact informa-
tion on the gate) and find an
alternative route until the gate is
fixed.
"Stay off, stay away, and stay
alive," Eaves said.
At the conclusion of the pro-
gram, Watson said that the
Operation Lifesaver program
was available for any interested
groups from two to 200. SCFE
intends to provide the educa-
tional program throughout the
area from Sebring in Highlands
County to Ft. Pierce in Martin
County. Volunteers interested in
being trained in the safety pro-
gram were encouraged to call
the SCFE office at (863) 983-
3163 for details.
The Lions were the second
community group to hear the
presentation. Last week, a more
graphic version was presented
to Clewiston's firefighters and
policemen. Presentations are
being scheduled for the Hendry
County Sheriff's Department
and EMS.
Additional information on
Operation Lifesaver, including
activity pages for kids and lesson
plans and resources for teach-
ers, is available on its Web site,

Over watering makes

landscape care a washout


Flourishing blankets of emer-
ald grass, trees soaring to spec-
tacular heights, and lush orna-
mental plants are the roots of
homeowners' dreams. Pursuing
landscape perfection, however,
is grounds for landscape woes
when over watering is sprinkled -
in the care plan.
Over watering "too much or
too often" is most common dur-
ing rainy season, when irrigation
systems should be adjusted to
match nature's natural rainfall.
More is not better, and keeping
landscapes over saturated can
damage plant materials, making
them susceptible to root and leaf
infestations. The problem packs
a double whammy when the
landscape fails to thrive and
weeds flourish. The homeowner
often thinks more fertilizer will
help, more pesticides too, and a
double dose of herbicide is added
for good measure. More water,
more runoff, more leaching,
more landscape failures, more
fertilizer.
"In fact, landscapes need less
of everything, especially water,"
said Bruce Adams, water conser-
vation officer with the South Flori-
da Water Management District.
"Too much water washes away
fertilizers and other treatments,
the landscapes still look sick, and
the cycle of more water, more
treatments, more runoff starts all
over again."
Southwest Florida entered the
first weeks of this year's rainy
season which runs from June
through October with over a
foot of rain.
Rain and runoff
"Runoff, is a silent but serious
problem," noted Adams. "After
all the recent rains, our ground is
so saturated that watering is a
waste of our valuable resource,
harmful to landscapes and pol-
lutes ourwaterways."
Watering now will run off
land, lawns and hard surfaces
like parking lots, winding up in
Southwest Florida's natural
waterways rivers, creeks and
bays as well as our lakes and
canals. During the journey to the
waterways, runoff takes with-it
pollutants such as fertilizers, pes-
ticides and herbicides used on
landscapes.
The district advises to turn off


irrigation systems when ade-
quate rainfall has occurred, and
irrigate only when landscapes
truly need to be watered.
Raindrops keep
falling on my lawn
"This annual rain pattern is
Southwest Florida's natural cycle
that replenishes the water supply
stored in underground aquifers,"
Adams said. "We rely on the
summer rains to meet water
demands year-round. But
because rain in the summer is.
usually so plentiful, it's easy to
slip into the mindset that careful
use is awinter-only concern."
Watching rain pelt the pave-
ment day after day can mislead
people into believing the district
is off the mark in its message
about the area's ongoing water
shortages. Over time, population
growth, dramatic increases in the
number of winter residents and
visitors, and years of rainfall that
fell short of the average 53 to 56
inches a year resulted in precari-
ously low underground water lev-
els in Southwest Florida.
The rainfall is not evenly dis-
tributed from year to year. So
while the first half of June 2005,
overflowed with more than
three-and-one-half times the nor-
mal annual amount, it's helping
to compensate for June 2004,
when rainfall was just 69 percent
of the normal average for the
month. ,
The good news is that a few
simple changes in landscape
maintenance practices have
huge benefits: Help protect the
area's waterways and save
water, while nurturing healthier
landscapes.
Use the district's "Water on
Wilt" (WOW) method to recog-
nize % hen the lawn shows signs
of needing water:
o Footprints are left in the
grass;
Blades of grass are curled;
and
A blue-gray tinge begins to
show on a normally green lawn.

Farmers turn waste into a valuable resource


LIVE OAK, Fla. According
to the "Poop Scoop" newslet-
ter published by the Univer-
sity of Florida to help farpers
manage waste from thourinds
of dairy cows and millions of
chickens manure can be a
good thing.
"We try to take a light-heart-
ed rear view of the problem,
but managing all that waste to
protect the environment is no
easy task," says Cliff Starling,
coordinator of nutrient man-
agement programs at UF's
Suwannee Valley Livestock
Waste Testing Laboratory in
Live Oak.
The lab, which is the first of
its kind in the nation, serves
livestock producers through-,
out the state. In the environ-'
mentally sensitive Suwannee
River basin of North Florida,
there are about 25,000 dairy
cows and 38 million chickens.
Statewide, there are about
142,000 dairy cows.
"After all the jokes about it,
manure actually has a lot of
good things in it," Starling said.
"These include valuable organ-
ic matter and nutrients that can
be applied to crops to reduce
fertilizer costs and, protect
water resources."
The price of fertilizer is
increasing rapidly, and the goal
of the lab is fo help change ani-
mal-waite into a valuable
resource-by analyzing it for dif-
ferent nutrients, he said.
The cow manure and chick-
en litter which contain valu-
able plant nutrients such as
nitrogen, phosphorus and
potassium can help farmers
save money by reusing and
recycling nutrients. Use of ani-
mal waste may also lower pro-
duction costs by reducing the


need for commercial fertilizer,'
he said.
In North Florida, careful
application of manure to crops
also helps reduce the move-
ment of nutrients into ground
and surface waters in the 13
counties that comprise the
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District. Because of
the region's porous soils and
active hydrology, every effort
must be taken to protect water
resources from pollution by
animal wastes as well as
human wastes-and fertilizers,
Starling said.
"In order to apply manure
to crops at the proper rate,
farmers need to know what
levels of nutrients are present
in the waste, and our lab can
provide them with that infor-
mation," he said. "The actual
nutrient concentration in
manures may vary from one
livestock operation to another,
depending on the animal feed,
season of the year and design
of the waste collection sys-
tem."
John and Doug Carter,
father and son owners of C&C
Farms in McAlpin, Fla., said
they rely on the lab to test
chicken litter for various nutri-
ents.
"By having the lab test our
poultry waste for nutrients, we
know what rates and amounts
to apply to crops such as corn,
hay, oats and sorghum," John
Carter said. "As a result, we
have been able to reduce our
fertilizer costs by about 90 per-
cent."'
Starling said manure should
be sampled at the lab before
each field application is made,
or at least twice a year, prefer-


ably in winter and late summer
to measure seasonal nutrient
variations in the waste. The
free lab service is provided by
UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences.
"Our lab report, which
takes about two or three
weeks to prepare, provides
detailed information that can
be used in the overall nutrient
management program of any
farm operation," Starling said.
"In,addition to providing the
analytical results and nutrient
availability estimates, the
report includes fertilizer rec-
ommendations for the selected
crop as well as supplemental
nutrients that are needed and
the economic value of the
waste being utilized."
To use the lab's services,
farmers can contact their local
county extension agent to dis-
cuss their manure manage-
ment system and arrange for
waste samples to be analyzed.
At the request of local county
extension agents, Starling also
educates individual farmers
about their waste manage-
ment programs..
In addition to coordinating
the lab's nutrient management
programs, Starling conducts
education programs, work-
shops and tours for farmers
and other residents who want
to utilize organic wastes on
crops, pastures and pine trees.
He said many conditions
affect the use of wastes on
crops. Nitrogen, for example,
is the most abundant nutrient
in waste, and the nutrient must
be broken down by microor-
ganisms in the soil before it
can be used by plants. This
process called mineraliza-


tion is affected by the type
of soil, as well as soil moisture,
soil temperature and microbial
populations. As the tempera-
ture increases during the sum-
mer, microbial activity increas-
es.
All of these environmental
factors are considered by the
livestock waste-testing lab,
which is located at UF's North
Florida Research and Educa-
tion Center. The center also
works closely with the Suwan-
nee River Partnership, which
includes local, state and feder-
al government agencies that
are helping farmers develop
strategies for monitoring and
managing waste and fertilizer
in the basin.
Nitrogen, phosphorus and
other nutrients in waste can
degrade water quality in rivers
and springs, causing algae
blooms that consume oxygen
needed by fish and other
aquatic animals. High nitrogen
levels can also affect human
health.
George Hochmuth, director
of the UF research and educa-
tion center in Live Oak, said
the partnership is being coor-
dinated by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services and the
Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District in coopera-
tion with UF, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture Natural
Resources Conservation Ser-
vice, the Florida Department of
Environmental .Protection, the
Florida Farm Bureau and other
agencies, agricultural produc-
ers and related associations.

Unusual "Tater"

discovery helps manatees


A French fry that looks like
Abraham Lincoln, a chip that
looks like Elvis, and now a potato
that looks like a manatee! Huh?
This normally humble vegetable
in its other popular forms has cer-
tainly made some curious head-
lines iri the past!
Recently an Idaho "baker"
caught the eye of Kimberly
Matthiensen and her husband.
One night while they were prepar-
ing dinner in their Virginia home,
Kimberly pulled a potato out of a
bag and was instantly amazed at
how much it looked like a mana-
tee.
"It was the most hilarious thing
I had ever seen," said Kimberly. "I
had heard of people finding silly
things, but this one was too cute."
Florida-reared, Kimberly is a
huge manatee fan and has adopt-
ed Betsy from Save the Manatee
Club's Adopt-A-Manatee program
at Homosassa Springs. She had
heard about people auctioning all
kinds of things on eBay, and she
thought it might be a good oppor-
tunity to feature her manatee-
shaped potato, that she nick-
named "Spud," on the online
auction site, and donate the net
proceeds to Save the Manatee
Club for manatee protection
efforts. Kimberly contacted the
club and made her proposal.
"We're very happy Kimberly is
doing this," said Judith Vallee,
executive director of the nonprofit
organization. "We all got a great
laugh out of the photos she sent
and thought why not? It's a cre-
ative way to help spread the word
about endangered manatees."
Kimberly explained how Spud
has very faint ripples on its body,
similar to a real manatee.
"There are little dimples for
eyes, it looks like there's a hint of a
smile, and there are even these lit-


tie crevices on the back. which
remind me of propeller scars," she
said.
Many of these large gentle her-
bivores, found year round in Flori-
da's waterways, bear real scars
from propeller blades, and sadly,
collisions with boats are the
largest known cause of manatee
deaths. Through the club's
numerous conservation and edu-
cation programs, people around
the world are eager to help. the
harmless marine mammals,
whose main agenda is eating and
sleeping very much like some
of the human "couch potatoes"
we all fondly know!
"I really don't understand how
anyone couldn't love manatees,"
said Kimberly. "I feel passionate
about them, and I'm glad Save the
Manatee Club keeps us posted on
everything that's going on, and-
how we can help."
She'd like to add Spud to her
own personal collection of mana-
tee items, but feels the eBay sale
will be a special way for her to
help manatees.
"I'd like to move back to Flori-
da some day. I want my three kids
to be able to enjoy the manatees,
just like I did when I was little,"
Kimberly said. "I really feel seeing
a manatee in the wild should be at r
the top of everybody's list of
things they should do in their
lives."

Soil moisture monitors help sprinkler system save water and money


GAINESVILLE The cost of
keeping a lawn green could get
lower, thanks to soil moisture
monitors that make automatic,
sprinkler systems more efficient,
says a University of Florida
researcher.
The devices can cut sprinkler
system water usage by more than
half, according to a recent UF
study. The findings were present-
ed at the annual meeting of the
American Society of Agricultural
Engineers July 17-20 in Tampa.
Soil moisture monitors contin-
uously check soil moisture levels
and prevent sprinklers from oper-
ating when watering is not need-
ed, said Michael Dukes, an assis-
tant professor of agricultural
engineering with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The monitors are not widely used
despite being available for more


than a decade.
On average, U.S. homeowners
use almost 50 percent more water
outdoors than indoors, according
to a 2000 report by the American
Water Works Association.
Because lawn care accounts for
most outdoor water use, home-
owners who .reduce unnecessary
irrigation can save big on water
bills, he said.
Sometimes, reduced watering
can even improve a lawn's health
- over watering encourages
shallow root growth, which
makes turf-grass less resistant to
stress and more susceptible to
some diseases, he said.
The soil moisture monitors
Dukes tested are marketed as
accessories for automatic sprin-
kler systems that use timers to
schedule irrigation. These sys-
tems are convenient to use but


often wasteful, he said.
"We conducted a survey of
Florida homeowners from 2002
to 2004 that showed mostly-grass
landscapes are typically given
two-and-a-half times the water
they need," he said. "The moni-
tors we studied, priced from $75
to $350, could pay for themselves
within one year in areas where
the cost of water is high."
Dukes' six-month study evalu-
ated four commercially available
soil moisture monitors, using
them with timer-based sprinkler
systems on UF turf-grass research
plots. For comparison, he also
tested timer-based systems with
no water-saving devices, as well
as systems equipped with shutoff
devices called rain sensors.
Rain sensors are popular,
water-saving options for automat-
ic sprinkler systems, but because


they measure rainfall rather than
soil moisture, they may not deter-
mine a lawn's water needs accu-
rately, Dukes said.
The UF study showed systems
equipped with soil moisture mon-
itors used 56 percent less water
on average than systems with rain
sensors when the timers were set
to water twice a week. Systems
with the monitors used 70 per-
cent less water on average than
systems without water-saving
devices on a twice-weekly water-
ing schedule.
Use of the soil moisture moni-
tors did not produce visible differ-
ences in turf quality, Dukes said.
The monitors are particularly
suitable for residential landscape
irrigation because they require lit-
tle effort from homeowners, he
said.
"For a timer-based system to


be water-efficient in a climate like
Florida's, it has to be adjusted sea-
sonally to account for heavy rains
in the summer and reduced water
requirements in the winter,"
Dukes said. "Homeowners can
avoid that inconvenience if the
sprinkler system adjusts to soil
conditions on its own."
Soil moisture monitors are
composed of two elements: Sen-
sors that track the soil's water
content and an electronic con-
troller that can.override the sprin-
kler system's watering schedule, if
the sensors indicate the soil is suf-
ficiently damp. The sensors,
which detect moisture by meas-
uring how well the soil conducts
electricity, are buried three or four
inches underground to monitor
the region where turf-grass roots
are densest, he said.
Dukes plans to continue test-


ing the monitors, and is currently
recruiting homeowners in Pinel-
las County to participate in a study
investigating how much water the
devices save when used on actual
residential landscapes, he said.
The devices will have to over-
come some skepticism to gain a
foothold in the residential market,
Mecham said. Some users have
had bad experiences with soil
moisture monitors, but he
believes problems are often relat-
ed to poorly planned or improper-
ly maintained sprinkler systems.
"People who install one of
these devices should understand
it will take some time to fine-tune
its performance," he said. "But
we need to learn to trust this tech-
nology we need better residen-
tial water management, and soil
moisture monitors are a viable
way to achieve that."


Florida receives $2.4 million for Medicaid


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that the taxpayer-supported
Medicaid program will receive
more than $2.4 million for Flori-
da as part of a nationwide settle-
ment with a healthcare corpora-
tion and a supply company it
owns.
A federal investigation
revealed that Gambro Health-
care and its supply company,
Gambro Supply Corp., improp-
erly billed both the federal
Medicare program and the indi-
vidual Medicaid programs in


.each state. Gambro operated a
chain of clinics that provided
care for end-stage kidney dis-
ease, a terminal condition that
requires regular dialysis treat-
ment.
Gambro Supply was operated
as a shell company, which
allowed the parent company to
bill Medicaid for dialysis supplies
at a much higher rate than other-
wise would have been allowed.
"Defrauding Medicaid not
only steals from the needy, but
places an undue burden of
responsibility on the shoulders


of Florida taxpayers," said Crist.
"This settlement will ease some
of that burden and will help
ensure that medical attention is
available to those who need it
most."
The settlement resolves alle-
gations surrounding Gambro's
bogus Medicaid billings for renal
dialysis, unnecessary diagnostic
tests and associated medica-
tions, as well as allegations of
kickback payments to physi-
cians who refer patients. The full
amount of the nationwide settle-
ment is $308.4 million, most of
which will go to the federal


Medicare program to provide
healthcare for elderly patients.
A total of $36 million of the
nationwide settlement has been
set aside for federal and state
Medicaid programs, with Flori-
da's federal and state share set at
$2.4 million.
The lawsuit against Gambro
Healthcare and Gambro Supply
Corp. was initiated by a whistle-
blower in 2001. The settlement
was negotiated by the Justice
Department and the National
Association of Medicaid Fraud
Control Units.


USDA to extend conservation reserve program contracts


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers with certain Conserva-
tion Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring this year may
extend their contracts for one
year, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
"Extending certain existing
contracts will ensure that CRP's
environmental benefits are pre-
served," said Kelley.
The extension option applies
to CRP participants with contracts
scheduled to expire Sept. 30, and
whose original contract with the
extension will not exceed 15


years. Farm Service Agency USDA is not planning to offer a

Young farmers and ranchers

take leadership to next level


ORLANDO Young farmers
and ranchers from across the
state gathered at Walt Disney
World to share ideas on taking
leadership in the agricultural
industry to the next level at the
2005 Florida Farm Bureau Federa-
tion State Young Farmer and
Rancher Conference.
The event opened with an
address by Mason Smoak, presi-
dent of the Young Farmers and
Ranchers leadership group.
Smoak stated that in its beginning
stages, Farm Bureau leaders rec-
ognized the need to provide
opportunities for educational and
leadership development for
younger members. The YF&R
program gives Farm Bureau a
continuous source of strong lead-
ership for the agricultural industry
- an industry, which is the back-
bone of the nation.
"As agriculturalists," Smoak
said, "we understand above all
the value of the American farmer
and the role of agriculture as it
relates to our nation's national
security, health, environment and
economy. American agriculture
provides U.S. consumers with the
safest, most affordable and abun-
dant food supply in the world. We
do have a great story to tell."
Speakers emphasized the


need to help the world recognize
the value of agriculture from the
farm gate. to the consumer plate.,
Workshops included "Advocating
Agriculture" and "Better Profit
Through Better Management."
As a grassroots organization,
Farm Bureau has been highly suc-
cessful with a long list of accom-
plishments. In fact, Fortune mag-
azine continues to rank Farm
Bureau in the Top 20 of America's
most effective lobbying organiza-
tions.
Shawn Crocker, a member of
the leadership group, said Farm
Bureau's success can be traced to
the exceptional leadership found
among its members. In order for
the organization to maintain this
heritage, Crocker said it is vital for
new leaders to be developed to
guide the organization in the future.
The event was held at the
Coronado Springs Resort at Walt
Disney World. Participants
enjoyed an evening at Pleasure
Island, billed by Disney as an
island of entertainment in an
oasis of fun. Before venturing out
on their own, the group had din-
ner at the Adventurer's Club, an
audience-participation comedy
club set in 1937 filled with tall
tales of adventures by a cast of
explorers.

WASHINGTON D.C. A
bipartisan coalition of Senate
Commerce Committee leaders
introduced comprehensive legis-
lation that protects consumers
from identity theft.
The bill sets national stan-
dards for notifying consumers of
data breaches, requires busi-
nesses to improve their safe-
guards for sensitive consumer
information, gives consumers
the right to freeze their credit
reports to thwart identity theft,
and limits the solicitation of
Social Security numbers.
The legislative effort is led by
Senators Gordon Smith (R-Ore.)
and Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) and is
co-sponsored by Commerce'
Committee Chairman Ted
Stevens (R-Alaska), Co-Chair-
man Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii),
' Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), and
Sen. Mark Pryor (D-Ark.).
The Commerce Committee
has primary jurisdiction over the
Federal Trade Commission,
which enforces identity theft and
fraud laws.
"The Internet and new busi-
ness technologies have added a
lot to daily life, but they've also
made us more vulnerable," Sen.
Smith said. "We need this bill
because having the world at
your fingertips shouldn't get you
into a financial world of hurt."
"The bill's.bipartisan support
signals that Congress is poised to
act on first-ever regulations for
data brokers and other compa-
nies that handle consumers'
most private information," said
Sen. Nelson. "If we don't do
something, and d6 it now, none
of us will have any privacy left."
"I am particularly proud that
the members of our committee
were able to work in a bipartisan
fashion to write this important
piece of legislation," said Chair-
man Stevens. "With the problem
of identity theft reaching epi-
demic proportions, a bill
designed to protect Americans is
absolutely essential. I look for-
ward to continuing to work with
my colleagues on legislation that
will mitigate to the greatest
extent possible the occurrence
of identity theft in this country,
but without inhibiting an infor-
mation sharing system that
yields extraordinary benefits to
every American."
S The bill addresses-twocore
problems: (1) recent data
breaches of sensitive personal
identification and (2) the current
lack of tools for consumers to

theft. Included below are some
of the key aspects of the legisla-
tion:

Information

collectors
The bill covers any business,
school, or other entity that col-
lects sensitive personal informa-
tion, including Social Security
numbers, financial account
information, driver's license
information, and other informa-
tion that the Federal Trade Com-
mission determines can be used
for identity theft. The bill also
covers any third party that pur-
chases or otherwise acquires
this information.

Safeguards
Businesses, schools and
other organizations that hold
sensitive personal information
will be required to secure it with
physical and technological safe-
guards that will be specified by
the Federal Trade Commission.

Consumer notice
If any of the sensitive person-
al identification is lost or other-
wise breached, and there is a
reasonable risk that the irforma-
tion could be used for identity
theft, the holder of that informa-
tion is required to notify the con-
sumers affected. The informa-
tion holder also must report data
breaches affecting more than
1,000 individuals to the Federal
Trade Commission or the hold-
er's primary regulator. If a busi-
ness, school or other informa-
tion holder fails to notify
consumers or the FTC -of a
breach, the FTC or state attor-
neys general may pursue a fine
in federal court of up to $11,000
per individual consumer
(capped at $11 million per
breach) .affected by the security
breach.

Credit freeze
The bill will allow consumers
the choice of placing a "credit
freeze" on their consumer credit.
report. That means an identity
thief would be prevented from
taking out credit in the name of
any person who placed such a
freeze on their-consutmer report.
Consumers' would have ithe
option of tilting the freeze in
advance of applying for new
credit. The decision whether, or

own credit report is the choice of
each individual consumer.
Social Security numbers:
Businesses, schools and
other information holders would
be prohibited from requesting a
person's social security number
unless no other type of identifier
can be used in its place. Those
holding sensitive personal infor-
mation also would be prohibited
from using social security num-
bers on identification cards and
other forms of identification.
Companies would be prohibited
from allowing prison-work pro-
grams to handle information
containing social security num-
bers.

State pre-emption
The bill would pre-empt state
law on all these issues to create
more uniform and efficient com-
pliance by businesses, schools,
and information holders. \
"Our identity theft bill gives
consumers the information and
tools they need to better protect
their identity from thieves
around the world," said Co-
Chairman Inouye. "Identity theft
is a new threat to our personal
security that must be met with
new tactics and new laws in the
information age."
"The recent wave of data
security breaches throughout
our nation highlights once again
the tremendous threat of identity
theft that Americans face today,"
said Sen. McCain. "Every day,
more and more of our sensitive
personal information is made
vulnerable to identity thieves
because some companies aren't
doing enough to protect our
information. As a result, our
social security numbers and
other sensitive information are
being used against us 10 mil-
lion of us per year, according to
government statistics. It's time
for a balanced solution to this
problem that both protects con-
sumers and maintains the viabil-
ity of our information economy.
This bill strikes that balance."
"Identity theft is devastating
to individuals, both financially
and emotionally,, and it's occur-
ring at exponential rates. It's
time to start placing privacy
rights first, and this bill is a step
forward.in addressing that goal,"
Sen. Pryor said. "I am pleased
that part of this bill is devoted to,-
giving consumers control over
their personal financial informa-
tion. It's good for business, com-
merce and consumers."
