U.S. Sugar: Issues remain


By Mark Young
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is a
first in a series of an in-depth
investigation into the hospital's
financial status, why U.S. Sugar
is getting involved, and what
the fate of Clewiston could be
with an improved medical
facility, or that same fate with-
out one at all.
CLEWISTON According
to U.S. Sugar's Director of Cor-
porate Communications, Judy
Sanchez, the deep-rooted


issues between U.S. Sugar, the
Blue Ribbon Committee, and
the community are anything but
"cleared".
U.S. Sugar officials, as well
as members of the initial Blue
Ribbon Committee responsible
for opening the early investiga-
tions into Hendry County
Regional Medical Center's
(HRMC) financial instability are
countering last week's report in
the Clewiston News that report-
ed that the hospital had been


cleared of any wrongdoing in a
court of law.
The public records lawsuit,
initiated by U.S. Sugar following
the company's inability to gain
access to all of the financial
documents they were request-
ing, including a financial asset

Dynamics, a privately owned
and operated physical therapy
business, yet paid for by the
hospital, with the exception of

not resolved.
According to Ms. Sanchez,
the presiding judge could not
order the hospital to turn over
the. requested documents,
because the hospital admitted,
in open court that they did not
have the documents. Ms.
Sanchez said the judge had no
choice to relent, but admon-
ished the hospital for their
apparent lack of record keep-
ing.
"The problem we had with


the last article was it gave the
impression that the judge decid-
ed and all was well," said Ms.
Sanchez. "In essence, what
came out at the hearing was the
judge said he couldn't force
(the hospital) to turn over
records that they didn't have -
that they admitted in court that
they didn't have the records
they were supposed to have,
which is a far cry from the judge

Three qualify



for the city



commission


No need for
September elections
By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The three
qualified applicants for the
Clewiston City Commission
seats up for reelection this
year have been declared the
winners without the need for
a city election.
The commissioners to be
sworn in-will be incumbents
Jimmy Pittman and Matthew
Beatty, as well as incoming
candidate IRichard Miller, all of
whom qualified for the com-
mission seats in time for the
Aug. 2 election application


,deadline. According to the
city's deputy clerk and assis-
tant city manager, Iva Pittman,
since only three candidates
qualified for the three vacant
commission seats, and
Matthew Beatty is only seek-.
ing a two-year term, the city
will be able to circumvent an
election this year.
The city had hoped to at
least be able to install the new
commissioners without the
need for a primary, which was
originally planned for Aug. 30,
if necessary. The general elec-
tion, which is held the second
Tuesday in September of odd-

A place to call


home: Lakeport


By MaryAnn Morris
LAKEPORT When peo-
ple decided to settle some-,
where, "somewhere" is. a
place, just a place, but some-
thing makes it special enough
to call home. Lake Okee-
chobee is such a place..
Edward Kunkel came to
visit in 1914 with friends, Mr.
and Mrs. George Shrimp, who
were in the.process of building
a bungalow in Lakeport. Their
boat, also called Lakeport,
brought the party from Fort
Lauderdale. Lakeport was then
a settlement of "about 40 fami-
lies" on the shore of Lake
Okeechobee in 1914. Moore
Haven, remember, wasn't set-
tled until 1915. Also in 1915, a
band of Japanese farmers,
including Madame and Papa


Special to IBI/University of
South Florida Libraries
Early settlers in Lakeport,
in 1914, lived in tents while
they built their homes from
the lumber cut in the town's
sawmill.
Watanabe (who later ran the
Watanabe Hotel) walked up
the west shore of the lake to
grow vegetables at "Sand Cut",
which later became Clewiston.
Mr. Kunkel. said his first

Sunlight has benefits


- in moderation


Too much of a good thing can
be dangerous.
The recent controversy over
exposure to sunlight is a good
example of this. Recent studies
show regular exposure to sunlight
may reduce the risk of colon,
breast, lung and prostate cancers.
However, too much exposure to
sunlight has been linked to skin
cancer.
Exposure to sunlight causes the
skin to produce vitamin D.
While vitamin D supplements
are available, there are debates on
how much vitamin D is enough to
get the cancer fighting benefits as
well as how much vitamin D might
be detrimental. If those taking sup-
plements take too little vitamin D,
they won't get the cancer-fighting
benefits. Too much vitamin D,
taken in supplement form, can be
toxic.
Getting vitamin D the natural
way is safer, researchers explain,
because the body will not make
more vitamin D than it can use.
Complicating the debate is the
fact that using sunscreen inhibits
the body's ability to convert sun-
light to Vitamin D. So going out in
the sun slathered with sunscreen
won't help produce Vitamin D.
How much sunlight does your
body need to keep your Vitamin D
at the optimal level? It depends on
how dark your skin is. The darker
your skin, the more sun exposure it
takes for the body to produce Vita-
minD.
For a fair-skinned person in
Florida, researchers say about 15
minutes every other day of sun
exposure is probably enough.
That's long enough to get the vita-
min D benefit, but not long enough
to get a sunburn.
Darker skinned persons need
longer sun exposure to get the vita-


with Katrina Bsken


min D benefits. Those who live far-
ther away from the equator also
need more time in the sun to get
the same benefit.
One study theorizes that the rea-
son for the increase of prostate
cancer in African American men
who live in urban areas is that they
do not get enough sunlight to pro-
duce sufficient vitamin D.
The best time to sunbathe is
early morning or late afternoon, as
the midday sun (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.)
is the most dangerous for burns.
You don't have to expose a lot of
skin as long as your hands, arms
and face get sun, it should be
enough. To prevent drying your
skin, you might want to use a mois-
turizer after sun exposure.
Senior citizens at risk of osteo-
porosis may be advised to get more
sun because vitamin D is necessary
for the body to absorb calcium.
If you are on any prescription
medications, check with your doc-
tor about possible interactions with
sun exposure. Some medications
make your skin more vulnerable to.
sunburn.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise routine, con-
sultyour physician..This is especial-
ly important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
prescription drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy".

mated application and perform-
ance management system. She

per as space permits.
IN RESPONSE: I am responding to last week's speak out, A Cele-
bration of Blackness. First I would like to say thank you to Bill Fabian
for such a fine article you edited exactly what you heard. By the
way, the meeting was open to the community and there was an
open forum to anyone who desired to voice their concerns, even
you former president. As far as your apology to the family for their
loss, KEEP IT, it was contradictory anyway. Obviously you do not get
out in the community much because you would have heard that not
only did a good young man lose his life for nonsense, but there were
many other tragedies which happened during the day. For your
information and others in the community who are unaware, a
shooting took place during the day and the shooters were running
through residences, thank GOD only one person was shot in this
particular incident. There were several people robbed that day,
some at gunpoint and their possessions were taken. A young man
was stabbed from West Palm Beach, can you imagine how many of
his boys will. come back at next year's Brown Sugar Festival for
revenge? A young man who lived in Clewiston practically all his life
came home for the festivities and someone hit him in the head with.
a bottle (14 stitches) while trying to get to his home in the backed
up traffic we have in our community on that day, as well as fights.
None of these tragedies should happen whether it's during the
hours of the festival's field events or five hours later, after the festi-
val's "Car Show". I am sorry former president but we cannot blame
Sheriff Lee for everything. Our community has just conveyed the
message that we close our eyes whenever a crime happens. Come
on people, this person should have been arrested months ago for
the death of this young man. But we blame the sheriff and every-
body else and not ourselves. As far as the pastor, please be careful
when you speak on the man of GOD. I can assure you the RAP &
R&B, tight mini skirts, low cleavage shirts are not accepted at True
Vine Church. Integration is not an issue this time, so let's not go
there. The Brown Sugar committee is responsible for paying for
police protection on the day of the festival. Two years ago, we had
more than enough police protection -who made that happen? I do
not want to imagine the young men who will come next year from
surrounding areas just for revenge. They will use this day, you call a
"Celebrationof Blackness" to kill or hurt someone. My prayers are
with you Mrs. Martha.

my deans at
seminary, and
were going to
have to ampu-
tate. Do you Pastor
know what he John Hicks
did? He held a
going away party for his leg, say-
ing that it had served him well!
A year later, when the cancer
came back and was close to over-
coming him, he shared with the
campus: "I know many of you
prayed for my healing. Following
the prescription of James 5:13-16,
some of you anointed me with oil
and laid hands on me with other
elders. We shared the sacrament


my family for many years. He
used my illness to heal my family.
I'm so thankful. Besides, I'm
going to heaven. That's the ulti-
mate healing."
As the old poker player used to
say, "It's not the hand you're dealt
that matters, it's how you play
with the hand you're dealt." This
is winning in the game of life. It's
not to discount the tragedies that
come into our lives. It is to
acknowledge that faith gives us a
choice. We can put our tragedies
into God's hands and watch God
perform a miracle of grace in our
lives.
Someone once shared that
people could be separated into
two groups: Transmitters or trans-


Each person has a choice as to
his or her attitude in facing life dif-
ficulties. We can sit around and
moan and ask, "Why, oh why, did
this happen to me?" and it won't
do us a bit of good. All we'll do is
make ourselves and everyone
around us miserable.
On the other hand we can look
up.and say, "Father, I put my life in
your hands," and let God help us
change from transmitters to trans-
formers, from people who are
weak to people with tremendous
inner strength; from people who
are miserable to people who radi-
ate with the joy of Christ; from
people who are over come, to
people who are over-comers.


When things don't seem to go well; do we change the rules?


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I've been asked to bless a
number of weddings over the
years some with unexpected
or interesting things taking place.
I've had people that were really,
really late (one bride seemed to
be near-killing-the groom on the
Church doorsteps when he
showed up late and slightly
"incapacitated"), a groom that
refused to kiss the bride (after
several tries to get him to give her
a kiss, and the congregation
laughing, I asked if he was afraid'
of her. When he shouted back
"No, I'm not afraid of her," he
finally bent over and kissed her)
and people that like to write their
own vows.
One couple wanted, to add
something to the vows that had
the groom promise to keep the
bride's feet warm. I wondered if
she might really be in need of an
electric blanket instead of a hus-
band. I did not accede to her pro-
posed vows (other parts of it
were just as' unusual, too).
There was something about
the wedding vows on the news
one morning someone pro-
posed leaving out "until death do
us part." I've also had a couple
that wanted me to perform a
"pretend marriage" for the bene-
fit of a sick mother of the bride. I
told them that I do not perform

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my
name is Vinny, and I live in Del Ray
Beach. I have 'two labs and they
both love to go in and out of my
pool. They don't have any prob-
lems other than being really goofy,
but I was wondering: Is it okay for
them to be swimming in a chlori-
nated pool all the time? Thanks.
A: Hi Vinny. Most of the time
swimming can cause problems
such as ear infections and skin
problems for dogs, especially flop-.
py-ear dogs like labs. As long as
they don't seem to be having any of
those problems, all is okay. Make
sure they are not drinking from the
pool because chlorinated pool
water can cause an upset stomach.
Even though they are not having
problems with ears and skin, I still
recommend having them rinsed
off with fresh water and clean their
ears routinely. Take care Vinny, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My cat Stan-
ley has been drinking a lot of water
and urinating frequently for the last
month or so. Is this a sign of a kid-
ney problem? Stan the Man in Lox-

A: Oh how cliche Stan not

result, can be a sign of a kidney

other concerns. For cats, especially

I gathered that people some-
times feel that what they see or
hear about should be the bases
of our practices, laws or policies.
With all of.the divorces, it seems
that- marriages may look 'like
"temporary" affairs to many peo-
ple. They ignore the very nature
of marriage a permanent rela-
tionship even if many break
down. With the rampant spread
of drug abuse or problems with
immigration, the majority of peo-
ple feel we need all of the laws
and enforcement that we have,
even more. We don't change
them simply because there
seems to be tendencies to break
them. In the same way, it is the
nature of marriage to commit to

wise the marriage wouldn't be a


Seven years plus), another con-
cern could be diabetes. Cats, and
dogs can get diabetes mellitus,
more commonly known as sugar
diabetes. The best way to find out
what is wrong with Stanley is to
take him to your veterinarian for a
few tests. In particular, a urine test
and blood test to diagnose the
problem correctly. A kidney prob-
lem will show elevated kidney
enzymes called blood urea nitro-
gen, and creatinine. For diagnosing
diabetes, an elevated blood glu-
cose will usually pin-point the
problem. In most cases, both can
be treated. Good luck Stan the
Man, and make haste. Waiting
longer can be a problem for either
disease!

marriage.
There is an interesting parable
about a woman who is married
seven times to seven brothers
(Mathew 22:23ff). In Biblical
times, a man married his sister-
in-law if she became a widow.
Apparently this is what hap-
pened '- she was married to a
man who passed away and her
brother-in-law married her. In
the parable, it happened seven
times; there were seven brothers
in the hypothetical example that
the Sadducees presented to
Jesus and each one of them died.
Finally the woman died (she has
my sympathy, being married
seven times to'men who appar-
ently didn't last very long!) and
the Sadducees asked Jesus
"Who gets her in Heaven?" Jesus
replied that, "at the resurrection
people will neither marry or be
given in marriage (verse30)."
Nevertheless, marriage had
enough permanence to provide
for the wives who found them-


selves suddenly unmarried while
they.lived here.

The parable speaks of a per-
manence and respect for the life-
long nature of the relationship
very eloquently stay the
course and if you can't, make
pro\ visions for those who were
loved to continue. The message
to those who want to regard it as
a temporary affair is: Wait until
you get to heaven. In the mean-
time, if it is to be contemplated,
know that it is lifelong, perma-
nent, and blessed as such. Any-
thing "temporary" would fall
into the same category as a
."square circle," it misses the
point and ignores the very nature
of a sacred relationship. Trying to
change its nature because of
problems reminded me of the
guy whose brakes failed on his
car, so he broke the glass on his
speedometer and pulled the nee-
dle back to zero. It just doesn't
work that way!

Crist: Principals



of insurance



scam sentenced


Victims to
receive $3 million

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that two individuals have received
prison sentences for their roles in
an insurance scam. William Paul
Crouse and Carmelo Zanfei the
principals of TRG Marketing, LLC
- were sentenced for selling
unauthorized, health plans to
more than 7,000 Floridians, result-
ing in millions of dollars of unpaid
claims..
Crouse and Zanfei marketed a
self-insured health plan to citizens
of Florida and 43 other states
without seeking a certificate of
authority to sell the plan. They
claimed that the plan was exempt
from the licensing and, certifica-
tion requirements of state law.
Investigators determined the
health. plan was insufficiently
funded and the company failed to
pay millions of dollars, in claims.
The affected Floridians could
receive more than $3 million in
restitution, ranging from $200 to
$200,000 per victim.
"This scam preyed on unsus-
pecting people who were simply
looking for a way to protect them-
selves with a health plan.," said
Crist. "These crooks not only
robbed their victims of that securi-
ty, but also 'their hard earned
money. This sentence sends the


clear message that we will contin-
ue to work to put an end to these
fraudulent practices, and to get
the victims their money back."
Crouse pled guilty to racketeer-
ing and four counts of unlawful
transaction of insurance on June
10, and was sentenced to four
years in prison. Zanfei pled guilty
to conspiracy to commit racket-
eering and four counts of unlaw-
ful transaction of insurance on
June 10, and was sentenced to
two years in prison.
Both defendants were also
sentenced to 20 years of super-
vised probation with special con-
ditions that they make restitution
to more than 7,000 Floridians,
after they are released from
prison. The restitution is expected
to be more than $3 million and
could increase if more victims
come forward, however the full
amount will not be known .until
the restitution hearing takes place
on December 9,2005.
: The Attorney General's Office
of Statewide Prosecution received
the case in April 2003 from investi-
gators with the Department of
Financial Services. Although the
health plan was illegally marketed
in 43 other states, Florida was the
only state to pursue criminal
charges.
Any citizen who believes he or
she has been a victim should call
the Attorney'General's Fraud Hot-
line toll free at (866) 9-NO-SCAM
(866-966-7226).

'sign that local schools are now
Back in session. Parents will soon
get detailed lists of "essential
-school supplies" from their chil-
l dren's teachers, and kids will be
looking at their classmates for the
latest fashions for the new school
year.
Many families will feel their
family budget is stretched real thin
this year, especially with all of the
storm-related expenses from this
-past year. What can be done to
help our students get started off on
, the right foot without breaking the
-bank?
"Back-to-school time is one of
:the major spending promotion
times by retailers and credit card
issuers alike," warns Paul Richard
of the San Diego based, award win-
ning, nonprofit Institute of Con-
sumer Financial Education (ICFE).
The ICFE is concerned with adver-
tising aimed at consumers that pro-
motes indiscriminate credit-based
spending for back-to-school sup-
plies. The ICFE is dedicated to help-
ing consumers improve their
spending, increase their savings
and use credit more wisely.


Because credit cards have the
basic message of: SPEND, credit
card use in this country continues
to increase. So also has the amount
of debt carried by cardholders -
and the various hidden fees are
also rising.
. Try these 10 spending tips from
the ICFE for getting better value
when doing your back-to school
shopping.
Make a list of what is needed
by category; i.e. clothing, books,
sports equipment, or music etc.
Plan ahead. Start watching for
store sale flyers, flea markets,
garage sales, clearance sales, etc.
Establish a spending-plan and
make a timetable to purchase the
essentials over several weeks or
months.
Comparison shop with at
least five different sources for the
bestvalues.
Consider not buying all the
needed clothing initially If it all
gets worn at once, it may all need
replacing at the same time. Spread
out these purchases over many
weeks. Allow some flexibility so as
to take advantage of sales and true
bargains.
Avoid using credit cards to
spend income iot yet earned. They
are too expensive (users either pay
interest or an annual fee, or both,
for the convenience). Some credit
card issuers routinely promote


- not back in debt


indiscriminate spending, which so
often can result in overspending.
Try using a bank debit card that
uses money you actually have, and
avoid those fees and interest pay-
ments.
When it comes to trendy
items for school clothes or school
supplies, encourage children to
become independent and not "go-
with-the-flow" demanding all of
the latest product tie-ins, from the
summer's hottest movies, for
example. Fads often lose their
steam after school starts, often
because nearly every other child
has them.
If there are several children in
your home with back to school
needs, you may want to consider
setting aside money each month of
the year for this expense to avoid
having to divert money away from
other expenses.
Use layaway plans for cloth-
ing, supplies, etc. whenever possi-
ble and practical.
Purchase "pre-owned"
(used) text books, lab tools and
supplies, etc. when possible.
Most consumers who do credit-
based spending have become vic-
tims to the forces in our society,
getting people to spend beyond
their incomes. Credit based spend-
ing decisions have .a far greater
negative impact on one's financial
future than any investment deci-


sion one might ever make. These
decisions include how often to eat
out (or entertain someone) this
week, how much to spend on
back-to-school needs, or redeco-
rating a room, updating your
wardrobe and especially those
unplanned spending trips to the
grocery store.

ing Spending," monthly budgeting
guidelines, and to receive warning
labels and sleeves for debit and
charge cards, visit the ICFE's Web

increasing savings, using credit
wisely, plus ideas on how to set up'
and implement a spending-plan

finances.

for learning success
Mara Duke-Principal Dress Code.
Eastside Elementary The dress code will remain the
0a0. a. l0a0 tI7) ta.r


As principal of Eastside Ele-
mentary School, I am proud of
the academic growth our children
achieve throughout the school
year. Our faculty and staff are
committed to high expectations,
a focused environment, best prac-
tices, and the joy of learning. In
partnership with parents and
community members, we strive
to make a difference in the life of
every child. I am looking forward
to an OUTSTANDING year.
Each year a theme is picked for
our school. This year it is "East-
side's Passport. to the World".
Children will receive a fake pass-
port and travel throughout the
school learning about other coun-
tries' language, customs, geogra-
phy, history, animals, and foods.
The awards for academic excel-
lence, mastery of math facts,
meeting Accelerated Reader
goals, completing FCAT Explorer,
and reaching the top levels in the
Waterford Kindergarten Program
are built around the theme. Our
newly adopted social studies
books will also be used to enrich
the children's knowledge of their
world.
The administrators, teachers,
and parents worked to develop
the 2005-2006 School Improve-
ment Plan. This plan includes our
academic, parent involvement,
and technology goals for the year.
It is based on past performance,
surveys, and other data. Even
though we have been able to
maintain an "A" or "B" grade for
the past five years there are areas
in need of improvement. The
School Improvement Plan will
assists us in maintaining our focus
on the important goals of reading,
math, writing, science, technolo-
gy, and parental involvement as
well as define ways to monitor
our progress. Also within the
plan, more inclusion opportuni-
ties and teacher support have
been added for students with spe-
cific learning needs.
Eastside's open house was on
Thursday, August 4, from 6 p.m.
to 7:45 p.m. Parents and students
were very excited meeting the
teachers and staff.
I would like to extend an invi-
'tatfint6 an\ one interested in vol-:
unteering his. her time to our
school. Come by our office or call
983-1560. Becoming a part of
Eastside's "Positive Atmosphere
for Learning Success" is a great
opportunity to make a difference.

Tiger football set for Pahokee exhibition Law Offices of Robert L. Vaughn, P.A.


1: By Bill Fabian
: CLEWISTON HIGH SCHOOL
The Clewiston High Schoo
', Fighting Tigers have begun presea-
son workouts and regular practices
1 in full pads in preparation for the
1-: upcoming fall 2005 football sea-
Sson.
:1 Having minimal losses in key
positions from last year's senior
; class, Head Coach Tommy Morrell
J expects a strong effort from his sea-
soned varsity squad as the team
takes on the 2004 state champion
". Pahokee Blue Devils in a Kickoff
Classic exhibition game at Cane
5 Field on Friday, Aug. 19. The game
will be an opportunity for area fans
to see what used to be one of the
most intense rivalries in the state
when the Blue Devils come to
Cane Field.
A preseason Blue and Gold
game will be held Friday, Aug. 12.
Tiger football practices began
Monday, Aug. 1 for the junior varsi-
ty and varsity squads. Despite auto-
matic afternoon thunderstorms,
which cut some practices short, as
: well as having to deal with brutally
hot conditions when the rain
: stopped, the practices have gone
smoothly, according to Coach Mor-
rell, and the team is poised to take
on a heavy schedule packed with
away games at some tough high
school venues.
: Following the preseason classic
: against Pahokee, the Tigers will
take on American Heritage at Cane
* Field on Aug. 26. The Tigers are 5-3
: against the American Heritage
4 team, which barely squeaked by in
l a two-point victory over the Tiger
squad lastyear.
s The Tigers will then take on
three of their biggest rivals in a
month-long string of away games
against LaBelle High School,
SGlades Day School, and Glades
SCentral High School.
The LaBelle Cowboys will no
doubt give their best effort, having
beaten the Tigers last year for just
the third time since the two first
^ played in 1972, in another frustrat-
ing, one-point margin of victory.
: The Tigers are 5-1 against the
Glades Day Gators since the teams
began playing again in 1999, and
hope to continue to keep the
Gators at bay as they head into
Belle Glade for the Sept. 9 game.
t And of course, the Glades Cen-
4 trial Raiders will be a big test at one
of the toughest high school road-
venues in the state. Although the
Raiders have kept the upper hand
over the Tigers in years past, the
l once-matchless Raiders have
become far less a dominant than
the team used to be, and the Sept.
23 meeting could prove to become
a decisive game for the Tigers on
I their quest for another title run.
Other notable stops on the 2005
: Tiger football schedule include an
Oct. 7 match-up at Bishop Verot
High School, and home games
against St. Andrews and Okee-
: chobee to wrap up the regular sea-
son.
Coach Morrell is still searching
for his first winning season, after a
2004 season plagued by injury and
Y close games. In fact, four of the

liNI/Bill Fabian
Tiger football head coach Tommy Morrell ran the offensive
and defensive lines through drills as the players practiced
on their first day in full pads on Aug. 4.


Tigers' five losses in 2004 were lost
by a total margin of 12 points, or
less than two touchdowns. Coach
Morrell is counting on a few more
things going their way this year.
"We've had a great returning
class this year. We've got several
players returning at key skilled
positions, and,I feel very good
, about those.guys with some expe-
rience and familiarity with what
needs to be done around here,"
said Coach Morrell.
The team also hopes to bring its
line and running game back to the
dominant, consistent nature
shown by teams in years past.
"In fact, our offensive and
defensive lines may just be the
biggest we've ever had, when
they're all healthy. It's just inexperi-
ence that's holding them back, but
if we can keep them healthy, I feel
like that can really help us turn
things around," he said.
A major part of that line, senior
lineman Vince Vaughn, will be
needed when the Tigers take on
the Blue Devils on Aug. 19. Vaughn,
who. broke a finger during the
Spring Blue and Gold exhibition
game several months ago, has yet
to be cleared for full contact partici-


confidential boat inspection. A
vessel safety check decal will be
placed on boats that meet all the
requirements. Call 467-3085 to
arrange a boat check.

saying everything's fine."
U.S. Sugar initially filed the
public records request through
S the court in January of this year
regarding gross and net revenue
listings, specifically related to all
costs associated with the hospi-
tal providing physical therapy to
it's inpatients and outpatients.
The requested information
would have included cost relat-
ed divisions, space, equipment,
personnel services, including
billing and other benefits,
according to the court tran-
scripts.
The transcripts indicate that
HRMC's lack of specific records
is caused by keeping records on
a facility basis and not on a
departmental basis. Within the
transcripts, the judge appeared
to take notice that the outlined
requests had not been adhered
to -during the public records
request.
He further questioned
HRMC's attorney in what was
provided to U.S. Sugar regarding
the sale of land, currently the
location of CVS Pharmacy, and
asked, "Did they ask for, any
contract addendums too or
addenda to the contract
appraisals?"

numbered election years, was
slated to fall on Sept. 13 of this
year, before the declaration that
the election was canceled.
According to Ms. Pittman, the
decision will save the city
approximately $5,000 in costs
related to holding primary and
general elections. Since there
was a perfect number of appli-
cants, with no challenges to the
incumbents wishing to retain
their seats, the city will be
allowed to forego the electoral
process.
This is believed to be the first
event of its kind in the city's his-

Leading the effort for the sev-
enth year is DUDA, based in
Oviedo, with help from the Flori-
da Farm Bureau, Florida Citrus
Mutual, the Florida Fruit & Veg-
etable Association, the Florida
Department of Agriculture's Divi-
sion of Plant Industry, Florida
Grower Magazine, Florida Toma-
to Committee and retired FFVA
executive George Sorn of Orlan-
do, former president and long-
time member of the RCMA Board
of Directors.
"The annual RCMA Christmas
card project is one of many ways
Florida agriculture supports sea-
sonal farm workers and their fam-
ilies," Sorn said. "Knowing that
migrant children composed the
artwork makes sending holiday
greetings all the more special."
Several organizations have
also contributed $500 each to
underwrite printing costs, Sorn
added. The "Print Angels", for
2005 include DUDA, Florida Cit-
rus Mutual, Florida Farm Bureau,
Pacific Tomato Growers, Six U's
Packing Co., The Packer, Toma-
toes of Ruskin and Wishnatzki
Farms. Contributing time and
services are Activities Press, Cre-
ative Printing & Graphic Design
and Meister Publishing Co.
This year's selections, going
out in brochures to Florida
agribusiness and affiliated organi-
zations, include a general selec-
tion of 10 colorful designs; 10
additional unique drawings have
been set aside for exclusive
orders. Several growers have
already ordered from the exclu-.
sive list, Sorn said.
The general-selection cards
come in packets of 10 for $15 -
exclusive cards require a mini-
mum order of 100 cards. Note
cards for year-round use are avail-
able, too.
Proceeds from this year's card
sales will be matched 100 percent
by the Naples Children. and Edu-
cation Foundation to complete
the third floor of RCMA's charter
school in Immokalee. RCMA is
under a March 2006 deadline to
raise $500,000 in order to receive
the $500,000 "challenge grant"

HRMC attorney William Rut-
ter told the court that there were
no appraisals conducted.
"There were no appraisals,"
the judged asked?
"There were no bids," said
Mr. Rutter and continued to state
that there were no documents
and could not swear whether an
appraisal was ever ordered.
The court was curious in
knowing how the hospital knew
what to sell the land for, in
which Mr. Rutter stated, "I don't
know what source of informa-
tion they utilized to determine a
sales price," and admitted that
he was not sure if the sale was
ever recorded in the hospital
board minutes.
U.S. Sugar attorney Tom
Sadaka stated that the minutes
were never turned over to U.S.
Sugar for review. The presiding
judge fired several questions -at
Mr. Rutter in regards to the sale
of the property and the lack of
information regarding Physical
Therapy Dynamics.
Neither he nor U.S. Sugar
received any solid answers,
according to the transcripts;
however the judge said, "We are
not here today to determine
whether or not the hospital did
not maintain records that it
should have and this court is not
in a position to tell the hospital
how to maintain their account-


tory, Ms. Pittman said.
The current commissioner
not keeping a seat is Melanie
McGahee, who was appointed
to the position last year after the.
early retirement of Commission-
er John McCallum. The. Clewis-
ton City Commission will wel-
come newcomer .Richard Miller
as the incoming commissioner.
Richard Miller is a third-gen-
eration native of Clewiston,
where he now lives and works
as the co-owner of Sunshine
Family Medicine, Inc. of Clewis-

Clewiston High School in 1986,
Richard received a bachelor's

sight of Lakeport was a "nice
sandy beach, about 40 miles in
length." They docked, and after
driving by car about three-
fourths of a mile back from the
shore saw the beginnings of the
town.
"When I came to the town I
found out why they went back
so far. I am not exaggerating
when I say that it is one of the
most beautiful places in the
state. One of the most beautiful
attractions of the place are the
palms. They make a good shade
and yet are tall enough to allow
the air to circulate freely. Lumber
is on the ground for a ,church.
and a school," his description
takes you right back there in
1914, three'years before Okee-
chobee became a town.
Meanwhile the settlers lived
in tents and made do. Many
were college graduates and all
Worked hard. They had a
sawmill running and built
homes as fast as the lumber
could be cut.

ing records or their functional
records, that's an executive deci-
sion, not a judicial function."
The court ultimately ruled on
the hospital's behalf but also
said that another hearing may be
called for to determine whether
or not the hospital has violated
any state statutes. The court
said, "The court can't order ,the
hospital to produce documents
that don't exist, even if they
should have existed."
U.S. Sugar is currently
reviewing their legal actions in-
their quest for the truth: Their
primary goal as of right now is to,
ensure that the Hendry County
community remains informed
while also ensuring the residents
understand that it is not the goal
of U.S. Sugar to close down the
hospital, but to help the hospital
become more efficient outside
of its current operating prac-
tices.
There is very little debate as
to the, fact that HRMC boasts
some fine doctors and nurses,
committed to quality health
care. The debate will continue to
rage as to whether or not
HRMC's management company,
Quorum, as well as the sitting
hospital board, are capable of
leading HRMC into the future, or
drag it into the ground to be
buried forever.
Many questions still remain.


from Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity, before returning to Clewis-
ton to work at Hendry Regional
Medical Center.
He considers it a great oppor-
tunity to serve a community he
loves.
"I take this as an honor to be
able to serve on the city com--
mission, and serve the commu-
nity. Because I was born and
raised here, and I have chosen to
raise my children here, I certain-
ly have a vested interest in the
city's progress," he said. "I think
we have an excellent commis-
sion, and I want to help continue
that trend of quality, high char-
acter and integrity," he added.
The commission is retaining
two of its veteran members,


Physical Therapy Dynamics
claims protection against the
public records request as a pri-
vate business, but most of its
bills are being .paid for by the
hospital. HRMC Chairman of the
Board, Miller Couse has a direct
connection to Toni Couse, oper-
ator of Physical Therapy Dynam-
ics. Mr. Couse also owns the
building in which the company
operates.
Quorum receives a salary of
more than a half million dollars
a year for having two individuals
on staff as consultants to the
hospital, but rarely, attend the
board meetings and when they
do, don't utter a sound, accord-
ing to Blue Ribbon Committee
member Darren Smith.
There are tax-base issues at
stake with growth in LaBelle
outpacing the Clewiston area.
LaBelle residents are organizing
and realize they are now paying
the lion's share of supporting a
hospital very few people in
LaBelle utilize. And according to
a Web site survey, to be
explored later, HRMC only
attracts 16 percent of Hendry
County residents looking for
medical assistance, while 84
percent leave the county for
their medical needs.
What are the solutions?

Commissioners Pittman and
Beatty, who have certainly
helped to establish the city's rep-
utation for integrity.
The commission will enter
budget workshops in the com-
ing months, which will deter-
mine the city's financial sources
and expenditures in light of
expectations for unprecedented
growth in the area. "This city is
poised to enter a state of growth;
it is on the verge of opportunity,
and I am excited to be a part of
it," said Miller.

Special to INIlUniversity of South Florida Libraries
In 1914, Edward Hetzel Kunkel visited Lakeport with his
friends Mr. and Mrs. George Shrimp, who were building a
bungalow there. This group of settlers posed with their car
on the shore of the lake.


Mrs. King, the first womah in
Moore Haven, came by steam-
boat up Lake Okeechobee, as
did Mr. and Mrs. M.F. George.
Mrs. George wrote the story of
her trip and the 18 months that
followed. It was published in
Tropic Magazine in 1915. Much
is found in these, which,
appeared in publications of the
time, many of these are on the
Internet.


(Information for this article
came from "Notes of a Trip
Through the Everglades,"
Edward Heltzel Kunkel, Tropic
Magazine, October 1914; "Eigh-
teen Months in the Everglades"
by Mrs. M.F. George, Tropic Mag-
azine, 1915: and the Florida

Florida circa 1900. Complete

FFA: Out and about at annual convention !


CLEWISTON-- The summer
of 2005 has been very adventur-
ous for the Clewiston FFA chapter.
In the beginning of June, several
members went to the Annual
State Convention held at the Wyn-
dham Palace Resort in Orlando
Fla. The members attending from
Clewiston were Victor Berrips,
Rita Thomson, Kim Fielder, and
Lauren Hall as well as their advi-
sor Mr. Swindle and a few chaper-
ones.
Victor and Rita were competi-
tors in state competitions. Victor
participated in the Creed speaking
contest and Rita participated in
the prepared speaking contest.
Her topic was "FFA Curbs Child
Obesity." Though neither of them
placed high enough to make it to.
Nationals they did excellent jobs
in their parts. Lauren was accept-
ed in the Curticy Corps. This is
where people help behind the
scenes and wherever they are
needed.
There were many sessions that'
were dedicated to each retiring
officer. There were workshops in
between each session. In the


-workshops, you learned things
about working together and lead-
ership.- There was a lot that was
learned on this trip and many are
looking forward to next year's
event.
Also in June, on the 23-26, was
FLA, which is Florida Leadership
Adventures. To this event, only the
officers attended. This was locat-
ed in Hains City at a FFA Facility.
The theme was "Accept the Risk
of Leadership." They stayed in lit-
tle cabins and met in a bigger
cabin across the facility.
There were a couple sessions
a day with reflections at night.
They had hands on experiences
on how to lead, follow, and figure
things out by thinking out side the
comfort zone. They learned what
leaders need to be leaders and
what they should possess to be
good influences. Everything they
did, they did with teamwork. We
were all split up into groups
where they didn't know anyone
and were expected to cooperate
with one another. This was an
excellent experience and will not
be forgotten.

For the love of tropical treats


Surinam Cherries
delicious
Florida cherries
Its names are as many as its
delights, the Surinam cherry
(Eugenia Uniflora L. -Myrtle
family).
c To some, it's the pumpkin
cherry, so called because of
shape, to others it's the Chinese
cherry due to striking resem-
blance to tiny. Chinese lanterns
and to still others it's simply
known as the Florida cherry. In
India, it's cultivated under the
names of West Indian cherry,
Brazil cherry and cherry of
Cayenne. The Florida cherry,
Surinam, is readily available at
almost all plant nurseries all over
the state.
Regardless of name, the pitan-
ga or Surinam cherry, a bush-like
tree, is unusually desirable from
several standpoints.
Highly versatile in growing
habits, the Surinam cherry -
boasting fragrant blossoms and
foliage is rapidly gaining favor
in Florida landscaping. The fruit
is not only delicious raw or
; cooked, it's extremely high-in
vitamin C and the bright red cher-
ries act as food magnets for
some of Florida's most colorful
birds, cardinals in particular.
Surinam cherry preserves are
considered a delicacy.
In most of Florida, except in
northern regions, the main crop
is from mid-April to mid-May,
with lesser crops in July-August.
However, the Surinam fruits and
flowers throughout most of the
year and it's not unusual for a.
large crop to appear in mid to
late Autumn.
It readily grows from seed and
will flower and fruit the second.
year. Almost without exception
seedlings can be found beneath
the bushes, which are easily
transplanted and never admit to
having been moved.
Not unlike most other plants,
Surinam cherries appreciate
modest applications of a general
fertilizer and water in dry sea-
sons. And they lend themselves
to modest traditional pruning as
-well as to exotic shapes and
forms. This versatile plant is ideal,
used as a hedge plant.


It's well behaved and graceful
in natural-growth habits, or it can
be severely pruned in straight up-
and-down fashion, which makes
it ideal for a no see-through sight
screen. When left to its own
devices, a Surinam cherry plant
will easily, and rather quickly,
grow into a large, beautifully
shaped many-trunked tree, big
enough to sit under and have a
picnic with cherries for dessert.
A dramatic example of a Suri-
nam tree a big one that is is
in the yard of the Hendry House
at the end of Frazier Avenue in
LaBelle. It's not only big enough
to sit under it's big enough to
climb. Another large example of
a Hendry County Surinam tree is
next to the. office complex of
Hilliard Brothers. of Florida on
Flaghole Road.
And a fine example of a
screening hedge planting is at the
corner of Route 29 and Whidden
Road/County Line Road, the
entrance side of Maple Corner.
This one is kept clipped/pruned
to a fine degree, consequently its
cherries are few and far
between. However, its year-
round beauty is a joy to all who
think highly of a plant that boasts
fragrant foliage, is evergreen and
carefree.
If the Surinam cherry has any
bad habits, they're the best kept
secrets around.

The Surinam Cherry has many names, but its ultimate design
in nature is its great taste.


Are your kids



too busy?


Whether it's after-school
activities, soccer practice, music
lessons, karate lessons, or a part-
time job, chances are your kids
are running to keep up with
loads of activities. But how
much is too much?
Even summer, a time once
sacred for lazy days and unstruc-,
tured activity, has become just
another three months on the cal-
endar for those super kids and
their parents who would be
remiss without a day planner or
PDA in their reach. We're left
wondering, "Whatever hap-
pened to free time?"
There are many advantages
to keeping your kids involved in
activities, particularly those that
provide regular physical exer-
cise. The childhood obesity rate
in the U.S. is of serious concern,
so getting your son or daughter
off the couch and in motion has
many health related advantages.
Then there are the developmen-
tal aspects. of participating in
organized activities, such as
sports, dance, or music-social
skills are developed as well as
physical coordination.
Research indicates that kids
who are involved in sports or
other activities are more likelyito
stay in school males are less
likely to get in trouble with the
law- and females are less likely
to have teen pregnancy. These
are all positives and great moti-
vation to keep your kids moving
from one activity to another.
What's too much or not
enough is unique to each child
- the key is finding balance and
setting realistic expectations. Dr.
Steve Lerch, a professor of soci-
ology with expertise in sports
sociology at Radford University,
says a good way to evaluate
whether your kids are involved
in too much or in the wrong
activities is to listen to what they
talk about.
He asks, "Do your kids ever
talk to you about things outside
the activities they are involved
in?" If not, it's possible their inter-
ests are limited and aren't pro-
viding the interactions they need
for proper balance in their lives.


If kids have many diverse inter-
ests and enjoy what they do,
then as long as they're not over-
whelmed, staying busy can be
good.
The results of an annual study
performed by the Cooperative
Institutional Research Project
reports that more than 25 per-
cent of entering college fresh-
men said they felt overwhelmed
as seniors in high school. Lerch
says we should think about
where this begins. For some, it
may begin as early as that first lit-
tle league season that was cou-
pled with piano lessons and Tai
Kwan Do twice a week. Add to
that a regular school day with
homework, and you have a child
who's on the clock and trying to
keep up with a schedule that
would be considered hectic
even for an adult.
"The real danger is if the
child's relationship with the par-
ents becomes defendant on her
performance in whatever activi-
ty she is involved," adds Lerch,
"Parents' expectations can be so
high that anything other than
performance at the highest level
is considered a failure to them.
What's the motivation? Is it the
child's happiness or the idea that
whatever activity the child does
will pay off later on?"
; Lerch says playing a sport or
spending a lot of time in any one
activity with the purpose of get-
ting a college scholarship or pro-
fessional contract can be very
disappointing. If the child does-
n't receive the rewards that he or
his parents were expecting,
there could be a negative effect
on him and his self-worth.
So, what's the key to finding
the right balance? These three
things can help:
Make sure your kids are
involved in activities that they
like and enjoy.
Listen to what they say and
what they don't say. You can
learn a lot by "reading between
the lines" and body language.
Schedule "free time". They
need time for play, to be creative,
hang out with friends and family
or just do nothing.

Lawn Ornaments
These eight adorable lawn ornaments are sure to sur-
prise and delight everyone. Imagine them in the gar-
den, on the lawn, in a flower bed or even in a child's
room. Ideal for beginning do-it-yourselfers, all that's
required is some scrap lumber, a saw, sandpaper and
paint and sealer (if they're going to be displayed out-
doors). Simply trace the patterns onto wood, cut out,
sand, paint and seal.
The completed lawn ornaments range in size from
12 to 16 inches tall.
The plan includes complete step-by-step instruc-
tions, full-size traceable patterns, materials lists and
painting guides for eight lawn ornaments.

The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to Issue a per-
mit (File No. 50-0129049-010) to Pahokee Marina, to construct a breakwater
and reconstruct a previously existing fishing pier.
The project purposes to a) construct a 537' x 10' (5.370 sq ft) permeable rock,
breakwater to provide protection fro the existing marina, and b) rebuild a portion
of the previously existing fishing pier, which will consist of a 160' by 10' (1,600
sq. ft) access pier over the proposed breakwater, an a 106.3' x 10' (1,063 sq. ft.)
terminal platform (2,663 sq. ft total). The breakwater will be constructed with
three 10 ft gaps to supplement water flow through the system. There shall be no
mooring authorized along the proposed breakwater or fishing pier. "No Mooring"
signs shall be placed along the breakwater and on the terminal platform of the
fishing pier to prevent mooring.
The project is located in Lake Okeechobee, Class I Waters, adjacentto 90 Lower
Lake Drive, Pahokee (Section 18,. Township 42 South, Range 37 East) in Palm
Beach County (N 26 49' 32"/W 800 40'3").
The activity includes consideration of an application to modify an existing 5 year
sovereignty submerged land lease (430373818) by increasing the preempted
area from 401,362 square feet to 539,300 square feet, more oriess, to be used
in conjunction with an upland public recreationaldevelopment including a camp-
ground, restaurant, and boat repair facilities.
The application is available for public inspection during normal business hours 8:00
a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Fdday, except legal holidays, at the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, Southeast District Office, 400 N. Con-
gross Avenue, Suite 200, West Palm Beach, Florida 33401.

The Department will issue the permit with the attached conditions unless a timely
petition for an administrative hearing is filed under sections 120.569 and 120.57
of the Florida Statutes, before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures
fro petitioning for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Departments proposed
permitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the
Office of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,

however, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency may
file a petition within 14 days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the date of
publication. I
The petitioner shall mall a copy of the petition to the applicant atthe address indi-
cated above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or re-
quest for mediation with the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of
the person's rightto request an administrative determination (hearing) under sec-,
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention(
in a proceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the
presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205
of the Foida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Departments action is
based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or
identification number, If known;
(b) The name, address an telephone number of the petitioner, the name, ad-
dress and telephone number of the petitioners representative, if any, which shall
be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an
explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interest will be affected by the
agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the agency
decision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact If there are none, the pe-
tition must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules or
statutes which entitle the petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief.
A petition that does not dispute[ute the material fact on which the Departments ac-
tion Is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall
contain the same Information as set forth above, as required by rule
28-106-301.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Departments final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by it in this notice. Person whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the proceeding; in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above
Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
Any party to this order has the right to seek judicial review of it under section
120.68 of the Florida Statutes by fling a notice of appeal under rule 9.110 of the
Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the clerk of the Department in the Of-
fice of General Counsel. Mail State 35, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Talla-
hassee, Florida 32399-3000, and by filing a copy of the notice of appeal .

Endangered turtles may lose protections on west coast


On August 3-5, two sub-
groups of the Pacific Fisheries
'Management Council, which is
Responsible for managing fish-
,eries off the coasts of California,
1Oregon, and Washington, will
ibe considering controversial
'proposals to gut rules to protect
!endangered species. Most at risk
lis the Pacific leatherback sea tur-
tie, the largest turtle in the
!world.
.Environmentalists are rallying
to the defense of. the existing
,rules, which have been seen as
:an international model for pro-
'tecting marine ecosystems.
In response to lawsuits by
:environmentalists, the National
Oceanic and.. Atmospheric
Agency Fisheries agency banned
long-line fishing on the West
;Coast and restricted gillnets, also
'known as "curtains of death," to
protect endangered sea turtles
,and other marine species. ,
On August 3-5, the Pacific
Fishery Manage'ment ouncil'st
Highly Migratory Species Man-
agement Team and Highly
'Migratory Species Advisory Sub-


panel will be considering pro-
posals to reverse or weaken
these rules putting these
species, some of which teeter on
the brink of extinction, at greater
risk of being injured or killed.
Most at risk is the critically
endangered leatherback sea tur-
tle. Estimated to be 100-million
years old, scientists now warn
that it could go extinct in the
Pacific in the next 5-30 years
unless efforts are made to
reduce the threat of being
injured or killed by long-lines
and gillnets. The number of
female nesting Pacific
leatherbacks has declined by 95
percent since 1984. The U.S.
Pacific Coast is an important
migratory route and foraging
area for leatherback sea turtles.
"These rules are crucial for
protecting the leatherback and
other marine species from being
injured or killed by gillnets and
long-lines. Eliminating rather'
than strengthening protections
for these critically endangered
turtles would be a huge and pos-
sibly irreversible mistake," said


Todd Steiner, executive director
of Sea Turtle Restoration Project.
After the Hawaiian long-line
fishery was shut down by a fed-
eral district court in 1999 for
catching too many sea turtles,
about three dozen Hawaiian
long-line vessels flouted a gap in
federal regulations by moving
their swordfish operations to
California. Last March, NOAA
Fisheries banned California
long-lining. The closure was in
response to a decision by the 9th
Circuit Federal Court of Appeals
that the council had violated the
Endangered Species Act by fail-
ing to properly evaluate the
impact of long-lining on these
species.
According to the Pacific Fish-
eries Management Council's
Web site, allowing long-line ves-
sels fishing for swordfish to use
"circle hook" fishing gear would
be enough to restart the fishery.
The "circle hook" has been
widely criticized because it is,
being used although the
research has never been inde-
pendently peer reviewed to


prove that it effectively protects
sea turtles and other marine
species.
"Allowing long-line fishing in
California again would reward
renegades who mocked the
authority of a federal court,"
lamented Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator with the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project.
In 2001, NOAA Fisheries also
closed waters off Monterey Bay,
California, and in the vicinity
north to the 45i N latitude inter-
sect with the Oregon Coast from
Aug. 15 through Nov. 15 in
response to the threat of a law-
suit.
The region north of Point
Conception had recently was
during El Nino years as the result
of another lawsuit in 2002 to
protect loggerhead turtles,
another species facing threat of
extinction due to mortality
caused by industrial fishing.
Known as "curtains of death"
because they catch and kill
everything in their path, large
gillnets (also known as driftnets)


were banned by. the United
Nations on the high seas in 1991.
Along with sea turtles, gillnets
also injure or kill sperm whales,
humpback whales, fin whales,
Steller sea lions and other threat-
ened and endangered species.
This year, 1,007 scientists
form 97, countries and 281 non-
governmental organizations
from 62 countries delivered a let-
ter to the United. Nations urging
it to implement a moratorium
on industrial long-line and gill-
net fishing in the Pacific.
"There is no excuse for taking
a step back on restricting the use
of gillnets or long-lines. The first
ones to.pay the price for allow-


ing more of these curtains of
death will be sea turtles and
other endangered marine
wildlife," added Ovetz.

The Sea Turtle Restoration
Project is ,a California-based
international marine conserva-
tion organization that works to
protect sea turtles and other
marine species in the United
States and in countries around
the world. For more information

USDA Florida Hurricane Disaster


Assistance programs' sign-up ends soon


GAINESVILLE The sign-up
,period for current Florida Hurri-
cane Disaster Assistance Programs
offered by the U.S. Department of
Agriculture will end Sept. 9, said
Farm Service Agency State Execu-
tive Director Kevin Kelley.
Three USDA programs adminis-
tered by the Farm Service Agency
(FSA) were initiated last year to
provide special disaster relief to
producers who suffered agricultur-
al losses and damage as a result of
'Hurricanes Charley, Frances and/or
Jeanne during August and Septem-
ber of 2004. These three programs
are the Florida Citrus Disaster Pro-
gram; the Florida Nursery Crop
Disaster Program; and the Florida
Vegetable, Fruit and Tropical Fruit
Disaster Program, consisting of
plasticulture, other vegetables and
tropical fruit.
"What we want to make sure
producers understand is that the
sign-up end date applies only to
taking initial applications for the
programs. Supporting documenta-
tion may be submitted at a later
date, but farmers wanting assis-
tance under these programs must
submit their application to FSA
offices no later than Sept. 9," said
Kelley.
Payments for this assistance are
authorized under Section 32 of the
Agricultural Adjustment Act of
August 24, 1935, which allows the
Secretary of Agriculture to imple-
ment programs to help restore pro-
ducers' purchasing power.
The Florida Citrus Disaster Pro-
gram sign-up began Oct. 5, 2004.
Sign-up for the Florida Nursery
Crop Disaster Program and the
Florida Vegetable, Fruit and Tropi-
cal Fruit Disaster Program began
Oct. 20,2004.
Producers in the following 56
S Presidential disaster-declared
counties may be eligible for pay-
ments depending on the type of
losses due to Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and/or Jeanne (if other
counties receive the same declara-
tion for these storms, they will also
become eligible): Alachua, Baker,
Bradford, Brevard, Broward, Char-
lotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier, Colum-
bia, DeSoto, Dixie, Duval, Flagler,
Gadsden, Gilchrist, Glades, Hamil-
ton, Hardee, Hendry, Hernando,
Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian
River, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake,
Lee, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Madison,
Manatee, Marion, Martin, Miami-


Dade, Monroe, Nassau, Okee-
chobee, Orange, Osceola, Palm
Beach, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk, Put-
nam, Sarasota, Seminole, St.
Johns, St. Lucie, Sumter, Suwan-
nee, Taylor, Union, Volusia, Wakul-
la. ,
"We are doing everything we
can to help farmers who were
affected by the hurricanes," said
Kelley. "FSA employees are visiting
farms, meeting with producers and
teaming up with local officials to
ensure that we address the needs
of the agricultural community.
Farmers need our immediate assis-
tance, and we want to be sure pro-
ducers are informed of the types of
emergency benefits available and
how to apply for our programs."
Details on the 2004 Florida Hur-
ricane Disaster Assistance Pro-
grams follow:
Florida Citrus Disaster Program
As part of the Florida Citrus Dis-
aster Program, citrus producers
will be reimbursed on a per-acre
basis, for, each eligible grove. Pay-
ments will be based on the severity
of destruction in four tiers as deter-
mined by the path of the storms
and damage estimates. Each band
was established at the national
level and is being provided to each
FSA county office.
The formula will take into
account various levels of losses
generally correlating to the dis-
tance from the eyes of the hurri-
canes, the average production loss,
tree loss, and rehabilitation and
cleanup costs. Fruit from the
groves must have been marketed
in both 2003 and 2004.
Florida Nursery Crop Disaster
Program
Applicants for the Florida Nurs-
ery Crop Disaster Program must
certify the number of nursery or
fernery acres eligible for cleanup
assistance. Cleanup consists of
debris removal and associated
activity. Eligible acres are those in
which a minimum of $250 per acre
in expenses are needed to restore
the area. The payment rate for pro-
ducers covered by insurance or
Noninsured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program (NAP) on any nurs-
ery or ferns in the county is 25 per-.
cent of the actual dollar value of
inventory loss and a flat rate of
$250 per eligible acre for cleanup.
The program also includes plasti-
culture, which refers to production
practices for fruit or vegetables


where the soil has been bedded,.
fumigated, fertilized, drip tape or
other irrigation systems installed,
and covered with plastic mulch.
Producers must have suffered a
minimum of 50 percent loss to be
eligible for payments.
Florida Vegetable, Fruit and
Tropical Fruit Disaster Program
The Florida Vegetable, Fruit and
Tropical Fruit Disaster Program
provide assistance for vegetable,
fruit and tropical fruit producers..A
producer must certify to a mini-
mum of 50 percent loss in produc-
tion or plant population, as appli-
cable, to be eligible for payments.
Eligible disaster losses under this
program are:
plasticulture (fruit and veg-'
etable)
*. tropical fruit (carambola, lon-
gan, lychee, and mangos)
vegetables (other than plasti-
culture).
Payments for plasticulture loss-
es will be made in three categories
based on the amount of invest-
ment and require a minimum of a
50 percent loss in plastic plant pop-
ulation.
Payment limitation
Each producer's payment is
limited to one $80,000 limitation
for payments subject to limitation
under these programs; Payment
rates will be five percent less for
producers who did not obtain Fed-
eral Crop Insurance, which is avail-
able from the.Risk Management
Agency, or on coverage under NAP,
which is available from the Farm
Service Agency. Similar to a num-
ber of other USDA programs, pay-
ments will not be available for pro-
ducers whose adjusted gross
income is $2.5 million or higher,
unless 75 percent or more is
derived from farming and forestry.
In addition, producers will be
required to agree to purchase crop
insurance or NAP coverage for next
available coverage period for the
crop. Other conditions will apply.
FSA also has the following pro-
grams to assist producers in the
hurricane-ravaged areas of Florida:
Noninsured Crop Disaster.
