Seeking a second chance


Funds raised locally
to support costs
By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Several hun-
dreds of Clewiston youth have
played Cougar football over the
decades, and all of them have
come to know Coach Aubrey
Walker for his leadership and skills
as a coach in the traveling youth
football league.


The latest battle for the venerat-
ed coach has not been on the foot-
ball field, however it has
become a battle for his life against
heart disease.
After an initial diagnosis in
June, coach Walker had open-
heart surgery. According to family
members, the coach's health has
moved downhill ever since. The
condition, according to the Walk-
er's family doctor, is hereditary
heart disease.
In a public letter by wife Mar-


garita and daughter Betsy Walker,
the family members announced
that coach Walker will need a
heart transplant. He was placed on
the National Transplant List as of
Aug. 5.
"We have several require-
ments we must meet, and raising
funds to sustain that new heart is
one of the requirements," said
Margarita Walker. "It's going to
take between $3,000-$4,000 a
month for life, so we need to raise
as much as possible," she said in


the letter. "Those funds will help
us with his medicine, transporta-
tion, lodging, homecare, and
increased medical costs," she said.
The Walker family expects to
have to wait approximately 76
days, which is the average wait
time for a potential recipient on
the National Transplant List. How-
ever, the wait time could be
longer, as it has already been more
than 50 days since Aug. 5.
Walker was a youth football
coach in the Clewiston Cougars


youth league for more than, 15
years. He has also earned a,black
belt in karate.
The hospital stay will be
lengthy. "His stay in the hospital
will be two weeks, and we will be
staying across Jackson Memorial
in Miami. for an additional two
months, until we can come home
after the transplant," said Margari-
ta.

Construction



jobs pave



way to growth


By Patty Brant'
LABELLE One aspect of
growth is the construction that
accompanies it. Growth means
building; building means jobs;
jobs mean money to regular
folks raising families and, buying
food, getting medical attention
- all the normal activity that
goes on in any community.
Before the jobs, though, must
come skills. That's where Educa-
tion Center of SouthwestFlorida,
Inc., (ECSWF) comes in. The vo'
tech is to be built south of
LaBelle and will be a vehicle for
residents to steady, good paying
jobs.
Plans have been underway
foryears.
SECSWF is waiting for USDA


approval for a $5.6 million loan
to begin construction. Originally
set to begin in 2006, the draw of
construction workers and sup-
plies to hurricane-torn areas has
pushed the projected start back
to 2007.
For a number of years,
ECSWF has provided computer
classes at its facility at 13 N. Mis-
souri Street. Recently a Quick-
book class was added. They
offer small night classes, with
individual attention to students.
They continue to work on the
curriculum, which will include.
courses covering construction
and other vocational skills.

County reps



witness



storm damage


By Patty Brant
A contingent from the Sher-
iff's Office returned last week
from Wiggins, Miss., represent-
ing the residents of Hendry
County, their good will, thoughts
and prayers. This entire commu-
nity has "adopted" the ,small
town of Wiggins in the wake of
Hurricane Katrina. The hurri-
cane devastated the small rural
town, about 35 miles north of
Biloxi. A grass, roots effort gar-
nered a small mountain of
canned goods, baby items,


water and hygiene items for the
people overwhelmed by the
hurricane's might.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee, Capt. Joe
Johnson, Lt. Andy Lewis and Sgt.
Archie Maynard delivered the
items to Wiggins, the Stone
County seat. What they.found,
Sheriff Lee said, was devastation
that rivaled a "war zone". They
found people down, but not out,
dazed and reeling from so much
loss, but determined to continue
- and very grateful for all the

Clewiston's Outstanding
Community Service volunteer
and Citizen of the Year Frank
Jones was given distinct honors
and recognition after being cho-
sen as Clewiston's finest citizen

Pittman and City Manager Wen-
dell Johnson, both of whom
began their current tenures of
service while Jones was a
Clewiston City Commissioner.

few years, so I can only imagine
how nice it was for so many oth-
ers who were privileged to know
him for as long as he served the
city of Clewiston," said Johnson.
"I felt very lucky to have known
Frank," he said.
Accepting the award on
behalf of the late Mr. Jones was

ness, highlighted just several of
the vast number of virtues Frank
Jones made a part of his daily life.
Among the many community
activities he was involved in was


trips to RAF and American air
bases located around Bedford,
including Twinwood Airfield. It
was from Twinwood that
Major Glenn Miller, the
renowned orchestra leader,
departed for France on Dec.
15, 1944, and was never seen
again, presumably the aircraft
having crashed into the Eng-
lish Channel.
While at Twinwood, visitors
toured the Glenn Miller Muse-
um, and got to dance well into
the night to the beat of a local
15-piece Big Band Orchestra.
The group also visited Duxford
Airfield and toured the aviation
heritage museums, which
included both British and
American aircraft displays and
history.


Mayor Mali Chamness
attended as Clewiston's official
representative, and made a
ceremonial presentation dur-
ing the event's formal dinner.
Also attending from Clewiston
were Ronnie Davis, whose
husband was an Instructor
Pilot for No. 5 BFTS, and Jeff
Barwick and his wife, Carlota.
Mrs. Davis was accompanied
by her daughter, Lenora Cap-
pola of Wellington.
Because of their advanced
years and health, the No. 5
BFTS held their last official
reunion in Clewiston in 2003
but still continue to visit the
area as individuals. During
World War II, the British Flying.
Training School was based in
Clewiston.

GAINESVILLE Growth man-
agement issues including con-
flict management will be
emphasized at the Florida Natural
Resources Leadership Institute,
which is now accepting applica-
tions for its new class that begins in
January 2006. Application deadline
is Nov. 1,2005.
Created for leaders in industry,
government, academia and the
environmental and natural
resource management communi-
ties, the professional program is
designed to provide practical con-
cepts, tools and skills for use in
managing conflict over natural
resource issues. The training pro-
gram, conducted by the University
of Florida, consists of eight, three-
day sessions between January and
October 2006 at different locations
around the state.
"Managing and protecting envi-
ronmental resources in Florida is,
more than just arguing about who
gets the biggest slice of a shrinking
pie," said Roy Carriker, a professor
of resource economics in IF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (UF/IFAS) and director of
the leadership institute.
He said the program is designed
to help people from different per-
spectives find common ground so
that they can collaborate more
effectively in dealing with natural
resource challenges facing Florida.
"When it comes to the environ-
ment, those participating in the
leadership institute are usually sur-
prised to discover how much they
actually agree on," Carriker said.
"As a result, people who had seen
each other as adversaries can
become partners in developing
solutions to important natural
resource problems."
In the eight training sessions,
participants study personal and
group leadership skills, communi-
cation skills, dispute management
techniques, and learn about law
and policy. Activities include tours
of natural resource sites around the
state and discussions with man-
agers, leaders and policy-makers
directly involved in growth-man-
agement issues.

about the science and policy
behind natural resource issues, and
explore alternatives for addressing
them," Carriker said. "The training
program is a 'real-world' project
through which the fellows apply
skills and concepts learned in the
program to actual conflict or lead-
ership issues in their professional
settings."
Each of the eight training ses-
sions includes a natural resource
area site tour and technical presen-
tations on a specific natural
resource-problem -or issue. Ses-
sions feature panel discussions.

Sessions also include training in
communication, leadership, group
consensus building and conflict
management.
Bruce Delaney, executive direc-
tor of the leadership institute, said
that a multidisciplinary faculty
team conducts the training, with
faculty from UF/IFAS and UF's
School of Natural Resources and
Environment covering resource
policy and interpersonal and group
communication skills. The Florida
Conflict Resolution Consortium at
Florida State University provides
trainers and practitioners in corn-
munity consensus building and
natural resources mediation. For a
second year, the institute's 2006
graduation program will be spon-
sored by Progress Energy Florida in
'St. Petersburg.
Issues to be addressed in the
2006 program include: Everglades
restoration and farming in the Ever-
glades, Clewiston, Jan. 19-21; the
impact of development on water
quality and the clam industry,
Cedar Key, Feb.16-18; the
rural/urban interface, Sarasota,
March 16-18; sustainable Treasure
Coast, Fort Pierce, April 20-22; infra-

areas, Ellenton, June 15-17; growth
management policy and issues,
Wakulla Springs, Sept. 14-16;
practicum presentations and grad-

Delaney said graduation from
the program is contingent on the
participant's involvement in all
eight sessions and successful com-
pletion of a practicum project.

Hello again, I know all you read-
ers have heard of the Florida artists
"The Highwaymen". They've been
a hot item over the past years with
the value of their Florida landscape
paintings going up, up, up. I'm sure
they never dreamed that. their
$39.99 paintings of the lush Indian
River landscape would someday
be selling for thousands of dollars.
It's not because these artists cre-
ated beautiful Florida landscape
paintings that they are so famous
today. Actually, their works are con-
sidered more of a folk art. They
thought nothing of using Upsom
board, Masonite, house paint or
whatever might be handy if money
wasn't available for canvas and
artist paints.
Even petty thieves, that know
absolutely nothing about art, are
tuned into how collectable these
extraordinary African American
painters' works are oftentimes
stealing "The Highwaymen" paint-
ings right off the walls of businesses
and homes.
This group of black artists work-
ing on the East coast would load
their cars down with their paint-
ings. Paintings that were some-
times mass-produced with each
artist having a specialty, and
adorned with the cheapest frames
they could find. Then they would
hit the road using every byway and
highway to reach every town and


city.
The Highwaymen had no idea
they were creating Florida art histo-
ry. Never considering they were
earning their way into the Florida
Artist Hall of Fame with their life
story.
The Highwaymens' story began
with one man, the master of Flori-
da landscape painting, artist A. E.
"Beany" Backus. Beany's studio
was located in Fort Pierce where
the young men rallied around the
magnificent Florida artist. He
became their mentor encouraging
them to paint and sell theirwork.
Backus, who died in 1990 at the
age of 84, found in the young black
artists what he loved: Art, good
conversation, good friends and a
quantity of good rumi. He inspired
them to paint the beautiful Indian
River landscape of inlets, dramatic
Florida sunsets, moonlit rivers, and
Royal poinciana trees. That cama-
raderie between Beany and the
Highwaymen evolved into an art
movement that is known today as
the Indian River School of Painting.
A. E. "Beany" Buckus was
inducted into the Florida Artist Hall
of Fame many years ago. I know
Beany would have been very
pleased to know that his "Highway-
men" have been honored 'there
also for their contribution to our
state's cultural art heritage.

There are heroes among us -
everyday people who make our
lives better just by doing their jobs,

na and Rita.
On Sunday, Oct. 9, there will be
an event, which will take time to
honor those people and say "thank
you" for their efforts an sacrifice, as
well as raise money to help the
helpers minister to the needs of
many people struggling from the
effects of Hurricane Katrina and
Rita. Please feel free to bring your
personal heroes along to join us!
Churches and individuals from
across the community are coming
together for a benefit concert of
patriotism and praise starting at 7


p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the John

Managing manure takes 'horse sense'


As the South Florida area
changes with more development,
some areas are also seeing an
increase in the horse population.
Folks fleeing the cities for rural
communities often want' to buy a
horse or two as part of their new
lifestyle. The South Florida Water
Management District recently pub-
lished a guide to help horse owners
control the runoff from manure to
help ensure it will not adversely
affect water quality. Water quality is
important not only for healthy
ecosystems, but to ensure a safe
water supply for humans.
Horse manure is rich in nutri-
ents. That's why it is prized as a fer-
tilizer for roses. But those nutrients
can damage other ecosystems if
they get into the runoff from rain-
fall.
Equine BMPs (best manage-
ment practices) have been devel-
oped to limit or eliminate excess
phosphorus and other nutrients in
runoff from pastures. The BMPs
were developed with the coopera-
tion of horse owners, equestrian
facility managers, the South Florida
Trail Riders Association, IFAS and
the Florida Farm Bureau. BMPs
include tips on fencing, preventing
erosion, pasture management,
weed control and storm-water


with Katrina Elsken


management.

Appropriate
fencing
To reduce erosion and avoid
water quality degradation, strategic
location otyour fences needs to be
considered before installation.
Install fencing to allow rota-
tion and resting of pastures.
Fence off areas that receive
periodic standing water where pos-
sible.
Fence to prevent access of'
horses to canals or bodies of water
connected to canals. Provide alter-
nate water sources such as a water
trough.
Fence along a canal so that a
buffer strip of vegetation will be
created naturally to filter runoff and
prevent soil erosion.

esting" photos of your pet, submit them to
myoung@newszap.com for a chance to win your pet a
day of pampering with Doc Savvy's very attentive staff.


Preventing
soil erosion
*Exposed soil areas without
vegetative cover is susceptible to
soil erosion. Besides being detri-
mental to property values, soil ero-
sion allows soil sediments to drain
into nearby canals. Eroded sedi-
ment can have high levels of phos-
phorus. Erosion and sediment con-
trol practices will prevent surface
water quality problems and retain
the property's topsoil.
Maintain a vegetative buffer
strip between paddocks or pas-
tures and canals and roadways.
Construct berms where
appropriate.

Pasture
Management
Consider sub-dividing large
pastures into smaller ones and
develop a rotational grazing sys-
tem. Maintain grass on pastures by
rotating grazing areas and make
sure there is a drinking water
source for each pasture.
Overgrazing occurs when 50
percent or more of the plant has
been removed all at once. This
causes a stoppage of root growth
and reduces grass production.
Confine animals for a portion
of the day to prevent overgrazing.
Allow rest periods and use a
high-intensity, short duration graz-
ing technique to rejuvenate poor
pasture.
Mow regularly to encourage
grass and reduce weeds.
Allow pasture grass to reach
six inches in height before grazing
and remove animals when three
inches height remains.
Mow pastures to a uniform
height after grazing to stimulate
equal growth of all plants.
Fertilize pastures. If you are
not an experienced landscape pro-
fessional, use a "slow release" form
of fertilizer.
Before using a fertilizer, do a
soil test to see if it is needed. (If you
don't know how to do a soil test,
contact your local extension office
and ask how to contact a master
gardener.)
Read fertilizer labels com-
pletely and carefully. Do not over
apply.
Watch weather reports before
using fertilizer. Postpone fertilizing
if more. than one inch of rain is
expected. Heavy rainfall can wash

the fertilizer into canals or other
waterways.
Weed management
Search for individual weeds
and promptly remove, especially
near water bodies or wetlands.
Avoid moving livestock from a
weedy area to a weed-free area for
at least 24 hours.
Mow weeds regularly before
they go to seed.
Manure management
Remove manure from stalls
daily. Do not allow excess manure
to accumulate in paddocks, corrals
or pens.
Drag pastures as needed to
break up manure and to aerate the
manure with soil to encourage pas-
ture growth.
Maintain a good de-worming
program to prevent parasites and
worm eggs in manure.
Compost manure to create
topsoil fertilizer.
Create two manure piles -
one active and one dormant.
Position manure piles away
from canals, roads and neighbor-
ing plot lines.
Use composted manure on
lawns, gardens or pastures as fertil-
izer.
If your horses produce more
manure than you need for your
pasture and garden, arrange times
for neighbors, gardeners or nurs-
eries to pick up composted
manure.
Mud control
Install gutters and down-
spouts on buildings to divert rainfall
away from confinement areas.
Maintain a grass strip around
corrals, stalls and other confine-
ment areas to serve as a filter for
mud runoff.
Storm-water
management
Where feasible, construct
berms on your property to retain
storm-water and prevent runoff.
Create buffer strips of vegeta-
tion along canals and roadways.
Maintain water retention
areas on your property.
Leave a "ring of responsibili-
ty" around pasture ponds by not
fertilizing close to the water.

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues blog at http//newsblog.info/0902. It is a home-
town forum so visit the page as often as you would like and share your
comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You can
also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 983-9140. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.
LOW COST AND HIGH SUSPICION: I've got two things I want to
discuss. One is the surprisingly low gas prices in Clewiston. We're
lower than the coast, for once. I've been here 30 years and this is the
first time I've ever seen this happen. Now, keep up the good work.
Don't raise them up just because you get the opportunity. You always
hear bad news and never hear good news, so thank you very much for
having the lowest gas price in the area. Second thing, does the term
absentee voter ring a bell? That's what's happened with U.S. Sugar. Mr.
Coker doesn't live in Clewiston anymore. He lives in Wellington. Mr.
Buker lives almost to LaBelle, so I'm not sure they've got the best inter-
est of Hendry Regional to heart. Try to do your best and take every-
thing with a grain of salt would be my advice and talk to the workers.

STUCK IN CLEWISTON: I used to be a U.S. Sugar employee and
took a great deal of pride in telling everybody that I worked for U.S.
Sugar. But now, honestly, I can't do that. The people from Africa, Ger-
many, Switzerland, Louisiana, and everywhere else, they're here
because the company, U.S. Sugar, requested them. Think about it,
people of Clewiston and I see the ads io the paper for refinery and it's
full time, year round jobs and it won't be affected by the layoff of the
Bryant Mill and the reduction in manpower next year? That don't
sound just right. But I'm here and I'll try and to make the best of it.
Maybe in a few more years, I can retire or the good Lord call me home,
whichever, but I'm stuck in Clewiston.

WHAT IF IT WAS YOUR CHILD: I'm calling in reference to, "some-
thing needs to be done" at Clewiston Middle School. I am also a con-
cerned parent. My child was beat last year a couple of times and noth-
ing was done and I think that these principals and these teachers need
to get their act together. When people come up and tell them that
there is a problem, they need to address it instead of waiting until an
event actually happens. They send them to what is supposedly called
the dome, but is nothing but a big waiting area for these kids who
enjoy going to the dome because it's more one-on-one attention. I
think something needs to be done. I think that it's ridiculous, I think
the principals and everybody else at the Clewiston Middle School need
awake up lesson, because if it was their child in that predicament, they
would certainly do something about it.

PARENTING STARTS AT HOME: I am responding to the parent who
called to complain about Clewiston Middle School. My son just fin-
ished his three middle school years and my daughter is in the eighth
grade at CMS. Not once, has either of my children been threatened. or
injured by another student. This is because my children, they're not
perfect, do not go to school looking for trouble. Those children who
attend Clewiston Middle School for the purpose of learning, do indeed
learn. Those who go to school looking for a fight at such a pivotal age,
will find it. As far as educational concerns, parents can be involved in
the school advisory board, parent-teacher conferences and providing
input into a child's academic improvement class. This school also
offers an after-school program. Our school system is not Utopian, but
it is effective. The school bears a lot of local, state, and federal account-
ability, but the parent and child have a responsibility too. This caller
needs to grow up and stop whining and be a real parent to your child
before it is too late.'

YOUR TURN FOR AN APOLOGY: I'm calling regarding the Clewis-
ton-Glades Central football game. The two teams played one heck of a
football game. It was a well played game was ruined at the end by
Glades Central. You were winning 13-7, you know you were going to
win the game, why not take a knee and show respect. No, you go for
another touchdown and get it. Fine, you won 19-7 Youpshowed a total
lack of class. The principal at Glades Central and especially the coach
es owes the coaches of the Clewiston players, the pllayers in Clewiston
and the fans in Clewiston ah apology. No reason for being so classless.
It was a good game, played hard, why not show some respect. No,
Glades Central shows a total lack of class.

Meet Your Neighbor: Abby Moss


By Ideybis Gonzalez

Q: What is your name?
A: Abby Moss
Q: Where were you born?
A: I was born in Belle Glade,
however, I have lived in Clewiston
all of my life.
Q: What do you do?
A: I'm a registered nurse current-
ly employed as a clinical care
coordinator at Pharmacy Solu-
tions, a local home health agency.
Q: Why do you do what you
do?
A: I began working in he medical
field nine years ago and I loved the
feeling I got when I truly know I
have helped someone. Nurses not
only care for the physical aspect of
a patient's health, we also deal
tremendously with the psychologi-
cal issues they are experiencing.
Working in the home health indus-
try allows me to assess a patient in
their environment and help them
to adopt to their particular situa-
tion.


Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: I'm definitely a people person.
I love to meet new people and I
cannot think of anything better
than spending time with family and
friends.
Q: What scares you? \
A: What scares me? Change can
be quite scary.


Q: What is your favorite song?
A: I really don't have a favorite
song. I love all types of music. I
guess it depends on my mood.
Q: What Irks you?
A: Closed-minded people irk me,
because they can't see outside the
box. I feel people should always
be open to other suggestions and
opinions you can't always be
right.
Q: If you had an opportunity to,
do something else, what would
it be?
A: Although nursing can be quite
challenging at times, I can't think
of anything else I'd rather be
doing. Nursing is rewarding -
you learn something new every-
day. Being a nurse is never boring.
Q: What is the favorite part of
your job?
A: The best part of my job is help-
ing patients and their families.
They place a great deal of trust in
me and just like if they were my
good friend or a family member. I
feel compelled to help them in
anyway possible. I form a bond


with all my patients, some touch
my heart more than others, but all
of them impact my life in some
way.
Q: Can you tell me about the
upcoming benefit you are coor-
dinating?
A: Well, right now I am coordinat-
ing an upcoming benefit for a won-
derful 20-year-old young man
named. Robert Nail. Robert was
paralyzed after a horrible motorcy-
cle accident he was involved in on
Father's Day this year. Robert
attained serious injuries and will
require total assistance while.
recovering. So, with the help of the
Elks Lodge, and many local resi-
dents a benefit barbeque, cow flop
and softball tournament Was coor-
dinated to take place Oct. 8 at the
Elks' five-acre field on San Francis-
co in Clewiston. This is a very
good way to help raise money for
this family in a time of need.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dear to you?
A: Memories of loved ones I've
lost are the closest to my heart.


Hurricanes and volcanoes: a message


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I attended a conference at the
University of Florida on "Crust
over the Volcano." The theme
had to do with our getting things
into normal, routine patterns and
then having our patterns dis-
turbed. The disturbances blow
the "crust off of the Volcano" and
force people to reorganize. The
presenters at the conference
maintained that we grow when
we reorganize and re-think our
lives; and get shaken out of our
"comfortable ruts." Many
well0known people are famous
for re-inventing themselves in life
and starting over on a second
career or new vocation. A good
friend of mine was a mechanic
for on of the major equipment
manufacturers for most of his life
until he was struck with cancer.
He was no longer able to work
but started to volunteer at a zoo
where he moved. He'd talk to me
about all that he learned about
animals he had just taken for


granted for years and you could
hear the excitement in his voice
as he described his new-found
avocation. Many clergy are sec-
ond-avocation persons; finding a
special calling after years in
another profession.
Many items I have heard
about persons who have
returned to school or gone into
another way of life after serving
for months or years in a "com-
fortable rut" but not really feeling
fulfilled or satisfied. Reorganiza-
tion of ones life after a change in
domestic relationships is often
regarded as a negative factor
when it can also be a positive fac-
tor. It doesn't mean ending a
relationship always, but some-
times reorganizing, rethinking,
redirecting the domestic scene.
Sometimes the process is painful
and we have no choice. We hear
about thousands of people who
are having to reorganize their
lives after a hurricane of mon-
strous proportions and unimag-
inable damage. I am sure that
they will not be quick to look at
the blessings that come in reor-


ganization but also know that the
changes forced upon them will
cause them to reflect and rethink
about what is important in life,
what values are dear to them,
what is to be learned by all that
has happened. The Christian reli-
gion is about people that were
continually reorganizing their
lives; fishermen who gave up the
sea, a tax collector who had to
give up a lucrative lifestyle and
income, a well-trained Pharisee
who had to give up his traditions.
Each of them, though, found
something new and the doors
that opened were well worth the
suffering it took to get out of the
"comfortable rut." In an
encounter with the Lord, many
are led to change their lives and
begin life over in a whole new
direction. Sometimes- it happens
when a person realizes "this isn't
working" and the earnest search
begins for a better life; at other
times something dramatic hap-
pens and forces change that is
unwelcome and unwanted. In
either case, the crust is blown off
of the old, comfortable volcano


and the process of reorganiza-
tion and rethinking begins again.
We don't have any Volcanoes
here in South Florida, but we
have hurricanes to shake us up
every so often. I will be the first
not to downplay the seriousness
of the damage, destruction, loss
of life and tragedy that they
being. In spite of everything,
though, there is a forced re-think-
ing, reorganization that comes; a
promise to be better prepared, a
vow to help those who suffer
from disasters in their own areas,
a dedication to cherish more
dearly those we love, an appreci-
ation of the gift of life and bless-
ings of friends and family.
The Lord who came and
brought us to rethink and reor-
ganize our lives did not stop by
giving one new pattern, but the
way to continued newness and
opening to the gifts of this life. He
concludes in Revelation by say-
ing "I am making everything
new" (Revelation 21:5) The
process has not ended and will
continue, and God is there aside
us each time we share it in life.

Community Brief


Letter to the Editor


Spin doctors at work
Dear editor:
Regarding the problems with
our local hospital: My views on this
controversy are that there are three
sides:
1) U.S. Sugar/Blue Ribbon
Panel.
2) Quorum Health
Resources/Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center.


3) The citizens of
Clewiston/Hendry County.
U.S. Sugar and their Blue Rib-
bon Panel have an "axe to grind",
they question tax increases, which
affects their bottom line and not the
welfare of Clewiston.
U.S. Sugar and their Blue Rib-
bon Panel have deep pockets and
they have sent out mailers and pur-
chased full-page ads in the local
newspaper to support their posi-


tion.
Spin doctors at work!
Quorum Health Resources
counters with their own "Spin".
Both sides publish conflicting
accounting numbers so who
should we believe?
I don't think we can believe
either party what we need is an
outside impartial panel to help us
determine the financial future of
our hospital and our health care.
Who and how an impartial panel
might work or who should be .a
member? I don't have a clue.
Our future health care is in
question, not a, "tax break" for U.S.


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My dog has
one eye, which is part blue and
brown the other is all brown.
I've heard that situation referred to
as "Moon-Eyed". Is there another,
or proper medical name for it?
Does it cause a problem for vision?
Thanks Doc, Don in Clewiston.
A: Hey Don, what an uncom-
mon question.Yes! There is a name
for it. It is called "Heterochromia".
When the eyes are all the same
color it is called "Homochromia".
And no, it does not affect vision at
all. It is only a reflection of various
degrees of pigment in the colored
part of the eye. Hope that answer
does it for you Don. Take care, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My neighbor
has large dogs in the backyard, and
he doesn't clean up after them. The
odor is so bad sometimes that it is
unbearable. Is there any kind of
product we can use to control the
odor on our side of the fence?
Thanks Doc, Georgie in Belle
Glade.
A: Hey Georgie. I wish I had an
easy solution for you. I do not know
of any products that will really help.
In this case I think getting to the
root of the problem is the best cure.


Sugar or an "open pocket book"
for Quorum.
Quorum has many questions to
answer like what happened to
the money from the sale of hospital
property to Eckerd/CVS?
The best interest of the folks
from Clewiston and Hendry Coun-
ty lies not with U.S. Sugar or Quo-
rum, but what we need to ensure
our future health care!
Do we have the resources
and/or the resolve to make our hos-
pital functional or will we accept an
emergency room operation in
place of a hospital in the future?

Doc Savvy


First try to remedy the situation
with your neighbor by talking a bit.
If that doesn't work, then I would
call Animal Care and Control. Not
only is there possible a health code
violation, but also an animal cruelty
concern. Locally the phone num-
ber is (561) 924-5656. Good luck,
Doc Savvy.

CPD busts dealers


Editor's note: The following
individuals listed in the arrest
activity report are not an indica-
tion of guilt. Any one interested
in doing so, may contact the
newspaper upon final disposi-
tion of their case for publication.
CLEWISTON The Clewis-
ton Police Department reports
that on Sept. 21 the Clewiston
Police Department's Narcotic's
Unit conducted a controlled
delivery of crack cocaine that
resulted in the arrest of two
males, Ryan Otguest Willis, DOB
12/21/76, and Kevin Rolle, DOB
03/24/75, both of Belle Glade.
The undercover officers
ordered a large delivery of crack
cocaine, representing a street
value of approxirpately $7,500
from an out-of-county supplier
known to law enforcement to be
a major provider of cocaine to
our local area. The, supplier
agreed to meet at an undisclosed
area within the city of Clewiston.
Once the supplier arrived at the
location, ,the Narcotics Team
secured the two individuals and
performed a search of the vehi-
cle.


The search resulted in the dis-
covery of 130 grams of crack
cocaine. The cocaine was locat-
ed between the two front seats
where Willis and Rolle were sit-
ti'ng at the time of the arrest. Both
suspects were arrested and
booked into the Hendry County
Jail where they were charged for
Delivery of Crack Cocaine within
1,000 feet of school, and traffick-
ing of Crack Cocaine within
1,000 feet of school. Both sus-
pects are presently housed in the
Hendry County Jail with bonds
set at $350,000 each awaiting
possible Federal Indictments on
these charges.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment has changed their focus of
attention to target the out-of-
county suppliers who are known
to bring narcotics into our juris-
diction. The Clewiston Police
Department would like to again
thank the concerned citizens
who have voiced their disap-
proval of the drug activities in our
community by providing assis-
tance and information to the
police department in the appre-
hension of narcotics violators.

School Happenings


Eastside
Elementary School
Eastside students and parents
enter the kingdom of reading:
Sept. 15 was not just an ordi-
nary evening for the students and
parents of Eastside Elementary
School. Many students, parents,
and teachers attended a function
sponsored by Scholastic Book Fair
entitled "Entering The Kingdom of
Reading." What started out to be
just an ordinary book fair turned
into a huge success when the stu-
dents observed the activities
planned for that evening. The
response was overwhelming!
There was no cost to attend
this event, with the exception of
purchasing books at the Scholas-
tic Book Fair. Many parents pur-
chased books for their children
and their child's classroom. The
proceeds from this fair will be
used to purchase more books for
the school library and provide
Materials for other events such as
this one. Students could sign up
for door prizes by guessing how
many "Smarties" a Dragon eats.
They could enter the castle door to
the media center where they were
honored by the queen (Mrs. Duke,
the principal) and the big castle
mouse (Ray Tash and Dillon Irey).
Students and parents participated
in a variety of crafts such as mak-
ing your own crown, decorating'
the "Frog Prince", or designing
their own castle. Refreshments
were served to all who attended.
"I contribute the success of this
Scholastic Book' Fair to all the
wonderful parents, teachers, and
students who took the time to par-
ticipate in this event. It takes team-
work from Mrs. Duke, teachers,
and staff to carry out these activi-
ties. It takes enthusiastic students,
faithful volunteers, and the sup-
port from parents to make this all
worthwhile and fun," said Mrs.
Dierks.
Mrs. Dierks would like to thank
all of the volunteers, parents, stu-
dents, and teachers for taking an
Active part in making Eastside Ele-
mentary School a fun place to
learn.
Accelerated reader
The students at Eastside Ele-
mentary participated in the annu-
al AR Walk-A-Thon Friday, Sept.
16. Grades K-2 walked around the
school one time, and grades 3-5
walked around the school twice.


Submitted to INI/KrIsti Durance
Walk-A-Thon was held Friday, Sept. 16, at Eastside Elemen-
tary School. 1st place: Anabelle Williams, 2nd place: Chari-
ty Patrick and 3rd place: Jazmine Thompson.


All proceeds from the Walk-A-
Thon are used for the Accelerated
Reader program: Purchasing new
books, purchasing incentives for
the students, etc. Mrs. Perry would
like to thank all of parents who
came out to help with the Walk-A-
Thon.
Eastside. will have its first AR
Rally this Friday, Sept. 30. We
would like to invite all parents to
come out and enjoy the rally with
their child. The rally will be held in
the cafeteria and will begin at
approximately 9 a.m.
Special Speaker at Eastside
The students at Eastside had a
special surprise on Tuesday, Sept.
20. We had a special speaker from
FPL (Florida Power and Light). He
put on a great show about elec-
tricity for the students. He had vol-
unteers from the audience (stu-
dents) come on stage to assist him
with his production. All of the stu-
dents had a great time learning
about electricity.
Picture re-Takes at Eastside
Picture re-takes will be Thurs-
day, Oct. 6. Students who pur-

Report details progress in protecting ecosystems


By MaryAnn Morris
The South Florida Environmen-
tal Report, prepared by South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD), provides data .sum-
maries for all major ecosystems in
South Florida during "water year"
2005 (May 1,2004 through April 30,
2005). Public comment can be
made via a Web blog on the
SFWMD Web site
:! www.sfwmd.gov.
The South Florida environment
is large, complex and diverse. Many
areas are of concern when consid-
ering the health of the Everglades
and the health of residents of this
ecologically rich and diverse
region.
Kissimmee Watershed: The
Kissimmee Watershed is the head-
waters of the greater Kissimmee-
Okeechobee-Everglades ecosys-
tem and 'encompasses about
6,200-square miles of southern
Central Florida. The Upper Basin is
an important regional water
source. This diverse natural
resource forms an ecological tran-
sition between the temperate cli-
mate to the north and the sub-trop-
Sic areas to the south. The
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes is 28
interconnected lakes that work
hydrologically and ecologically.as a
resource of a regional size. Water
levels in the lakes are controlled
through a series of canals and con-
trol structures.
Historically the Kissimmee River
meandered about 103 miles
through an area one to two miles
wide called a floodplain. As part of
early flood-control efforts, the river
was channelized and two-thirds of
the floodplain was drained
between 1962 and 1971. Unfortu-
nately, this resulted in drastic
declines in wintering waterfowl,
wading bird and game fish popula-
tions. /
Restoration of the river was
authorized by the U.S. Congress of
1992, With the goal to restore 40-
square miles of river, floodplain
ecosystem and 43 miles of mean-
dering river channel and 27,000
acres of wetlands. Part of this pro-
gram will evaluate benefits to more
than 320 fish and wildlife species
including the endangered Wood
Stork, Snail Kite and Bald Eagle.
Land acquisition, advanced
research and on-going monitoring
efforts are important to the restora-
tion of the Kissimmee River ecosys-
tem.
C-139 Basin: Southwest of
SClewiston, is -the C-139 Basin

land use. The remaining land is
wetland and forested upland;
some is in the Big Cypress National
Preserve. The Big Cypress National
Preserve was established in 1974 to
protect the natural and recreational
value of the Big Cypress Watershed
while continuing hunting, fishing
and oil and gas production, Exces-
sive drainage and the introduction
of poor quality water into the pre-
serve via the existing canals are
problems. Since 2002, C-139 is sub-
ject by law to a Best Management
Practices (BMP) Regulatory Pro-
gram.
Coastal Ecosystems: Coastal
Ecosystems are the near ocean
shelf, coastal lagoons estuaries,
marshes, sloughs, tidal creeks and
freshwater rivers and canals that
come from the watershed. These
are mostly tropical and subtropical
ecosystems known for their diversi-
ty of. species and wide variety of
aquatic and upland habitats.
Spiney lobster, penaeid shrimp,
blue crab, oyster, spotted sea trout,
stone crab are some of the marine
and freshwater species of commer-
cial and recreational interest.
Coastal areas attract intense
human development making these
areas especially threatened by


the late 1800s. The lagoon and
estuary are threatened by increas-
ing residential and commercial
development, industry and agricul-
ture. Man-made changes have
caused significant changes in the
timing and amount of freshwater
coming into the estuary. Extreme
variations in fresh vs. salt water and
pollution from human develop-
ment and agriculture is killing the
estuary's seagrass and oysters.
Caloosahatchee River arid
Estuairy The connection between
Lake Okeechobee and the
Caloosahatchee Estuary dates back
to 1881, when it was dug to lower
the water level in the lake and start
draining the Everglades to allow
development. Now there is a fresh-
water canal connected to a shallow
bay with extensive seagrass beds,
mangrove forests and sand flats.
The estuaries in southwest Florida
are habitat to more than 40 percent
of Florida's rare, threatened and
endangered species. Available
water supply, variations in salinity
and levels of nutrients from runoff
are major issues. Overall, urban
growth, input of floodwater and
nutrients from agricultural activities
are the major issues. The goal for

ally imperiled". Other habitats in
this area include: Hardwood ham-
mocks, pinelands, freshwater
marsh, wet prairie, cypress
swamps, mangrove swamps, sea-
grass beds, tidal flats, oyster beds
and coastal dunes. These areas
support diverse biological commu-
nities including many endangered
species.
The Lake Worth Lagoon, Bis-

tem, Florida Bay and the Florida

other areas covered by the report.

periods and the reporting of the
results to the people is mandated
by law. The report lists all applica-
ble legislation. Independent peer,
review is also required by law. .
The Everglades Forever Act, for
one, requires a peer review regard-
ing the research and monitoring
program that summarizes all data
and findings. This external review
of this report, the peer review, will
be performed by eight recognized
experts from the United States and
the Netherlands. These experts will
participate in the public work-
shops. The peer panel will then
develop a report with conclusions


and recommendations. This will be
delivered to SFWMD on Oct. 21
and will be provided in appendix of
the final version of this report.
Editor's note: Articles in upcom-
ing editions will further explain the
details of the report. Public work-
shops on the draft 2006 report are
set for Tuesday, Sept. 27 through
Thursday, Sept. 29. Workshops
will be from 8:30 a.m. to 5p.m. the
first two days and from 8:30 a.m.
to noon on the third day. All work-
shops will be held at the South

trict Headquarters on Gun Club
Road in West Palm Beach.

Early visitors to Florida found a
pristine environment rich in
wildlife and foliage.
"Just south of Palmdale, we
crossed Fisheating Creek, a pictur-
esque stream, meandering
through the almost uninhabited
prairie, between banks either
exposed to the sun or clothed in
shrubs and bright colored asters or
hammocks of oaks, ash and
maple, which in some places give
way to groves of palmettos that
often lean far over the water's
edge," wrote John Kunkle Small in
his account of a trip he made in
1917 to visit the Big Cypress.
"After leaving the hammocks,
which border the creek we drove
out on the prairie again and few
trees came into view for a distance
of about eighteen miles, until the
hammocks bordering the Caloosa-
hatchee appeared," he continued.
Mr. Small was head curator of the
Museums and Herbariums of the
NY Botanical Garden at that time.
Mrs. George, whose husband,
M.F. George built many early build-
ings in the area, including the first
Moore Haven Hotel and the Uni-
versity of Florida's Agricultural
Extension Station building in Belle
Glade, left an account of condi-
tions during, the building of the
town of Moore Haven in 1915:
"The first weeks after we came

were to live or starve. No arrange-
ments had been made for sup-
plies. Provisions began to get low.
A small launch was started for
Miami, but there was no knowing
when it would return. At this point
Mr. Moore came to the rescue and
established a boat line from
LaBelle. We had fair service when
the water did not happen to be too
low."
Floyd Wilder came as a boy
from Knobel, Ark. to South Florida
in 1918. His father made a life for
the family in South Bay. "My father
started farming with machete, axe,
and hand plow," he wrote. "The
custard apple trees were covered
with moonvines that would die
when the frost got to them in the
winter. The custard apple was dor-
mant in the winter, would get new
leaves in the spring and the
mooonvines would sprout out
again. My father cleared virgin land
and farmed it for the first time.

Glades Central's Anthony Norton breaks free for a 60-yard
touchdown against Clewiston on a pass from quarterback
Bryan Mann.


Clewiston's Jamal Hubert had a breakout game against the The Glades Central Raiders improved to 4-0 on the year after
Raiders, rushing for a 108 yards on 19 touches for the Tigers. Friday's win. They will travel to Pope John Paul this week.


Late scores lift Raiders over Tigers by score of 19-7


By Bill Fabian

BELLE GLADE The Clewis-
ton Tigers traveled to Glades
Central High School to line up
against the perennial power-
house and rival Raiders, but lost
ithe game 19-7 as the Raiders
scored two touchdowns in the
final minutes of the contest.
The Class 4A Raiders (4-0)
!showcased not only a speedy,


reactive defense, but a consis-
tent short-yardage passing game
mixed with big plays. The
Raiders were successful in hold-
ing the visitors to just a single
touchdown.
The game was slow develop-
ing, which has come to charac-
terize many of the two teams'
meetings in the last several
years. The game began with a
scoreless first quarter, and
remained a scoreless tie until the


Raiders struck first with a big
play.
Quarterback Bryan Mann
connected to Anthony Norton,
who broke a tackle in the back-
field and charged downfield for a
60-yard score. The score
remained 7-0 through halftime
and well into the second half.
The Tigers (1-3) evened the
score at 7-7 when junior quarter-
back Jared Combass threw a 30-
yard strike to junior flanker John


Melton with 10 minutes left in
the fourth.
The Tiger defense- held the
Raiders on the next set and put
the offense in good position near
midfield. Following an exchange
of fumble recoveries, the Clewis-
ton offensive drive was stopped
when Raider defender Rashard
Adderly intercepted a Combass
pass and returned it 25 yards,
Glades Central scored five plays
later when quarterback Bryan


Blue Devils continue the win streak.


By: Nina G. Wills

There is an old saying in foot-
ball: "Offenses win games, but
defenses win championships."
Someone must have reminded
the Pahokee Blue. Devils defense
of this fact. Last Friday night, the
Pahokee defense once again
played championship caliber
football against the Atlantic
Eagles and helped secure Paho-
kee's third consecutive victory.
This game was a tale of two
halves. Pahokee dominated the
first half of play offensively and
defensively. On the Eagles open-
ing drive, senior defensive end
Un'Tavious Scott forced a fum-
ble and recovered the ball in the
Eagles' territory. Pahokee's
offense moved the ball down to
the five-yard line. Pahokee faced
a fourth and goal but could not
convert. The Devils defense held
the Eagles in check, though.
On Pahokee's next' posses-
sion, senior quarterback Robert
"Rah. Rah" Love threw a perfect
42-yard pass to Martavious
,,QOdoms for a touchdown and
Pahokee was on the scoreboard.
The PAT was good by kicker Jose
Rodriguez. On Atlantic's next
possession, Free Safety Tamar-
cus Porter recovered an Atlantic
fumble and raced 37 yards for
another Blue Devils touchdown.
Pahokee set up for a fake kick,
but Robert Love was unable to
make the two-point conversion.
In less than a minute Pahokee
was up 13 to 0 on Atlantic. The
Devils' defense had Atlantic's
offense confused and bewil-
dered for the entire first half.
Pahokee put together a nice
drive early in the second quarter.
The offense mixed it up with


runs by Ricky Gary and throws
from Love to Odoms. With 7:43
left to go in the half, Janoris
Jenkins had a 15-yard touch-
down run, putting the Devils up
18 to 0. Late in the second quar-
ter, Atlantic did get the screen
play going. This would hurt
Pahokee's defense more than
once. It took the Devils' too long
to react to this kind of play.
Atlantic faced a first and goal,
and the Devils' defense held the
Eagles to a field goal. The 34-
yard kick was booted through
the uprights by Eagles' kicker
John Stec. On Pahokee's next
possession, the offense was able
'to answer the Eagles by driving
down, the field. Freshman run-
ning back Vincent Smith scored
on a five-yard touchdown run
and the Blue Devils went up 25-3
to end the first half of the play.
To start the second half, the
Atlantic Eagles tried an on-side
kick. Pahokee recovered the
kick, but was not able to put any-
thing together on their drive.
Stalled by costly penalties and a
fired up Atlantic defense, Paho-
kee was forced to punt. Punter
Jose Rodriguez mishandled the.
snap and fumbled the ball. Ira
Lee Mosley picked up the ball
and ran 25 yards into the end
zone.
The Pahokee team was
shocked at the turn-around of
events,.After playing with a com-
.fortable lead, the Blue Devils
were forced to play harder.
Atlantic tried another on-side
kick. Again, recovered by Paho-
kee on the Blue Devils 46-yard
line. With 6:34 left in the third
quarter, the Blue Devils fumbled
the ball. The Eagles recovered..
Atlantic moved 86 yards in 11


plays down the field. With 2:08 to
go in the third quarter, Pahokee
had a scare. Star cornerback and
team leader Ricky Gary was hurt
on a play. He was obviously in a
tremendous amount of pain and
had to be helped to the sidelines.
On Atlantic's next play, Cleveland
Hankerson ran four yards. into
the end zone. This was the first
touchdown given up by Paho-
kee's defense in 11 quarters of
play. Atlantic was attempting a
comeback and cut Pahokee's
lead to just eight points.
On the first play of the Blue
Devils next possession, Jenkins
ran 69 yards virtually untouched
for Pahokee's fifth touchdown of
the game. Even Gary got up from
the bench and joined in the cele-
bration. This one play turned the
game around. It revitalized a
very tired and frustrated Paho-
kee team. When Pahokee need-
ed big plays in this game, some-
one stepped up to the plate. This
play ended the third quarter.
Ricky Gary did re-enter the
game, but pla' ed at the safety
- position. It was., obvious. Gary
was hurting, but he refused to sit
out of the game. Gary bruised
his right hip making it difficult to
bend over. Love stepped in as
cornerback .and knocked the
ball away from an Atlantic
receiver on a key third down.
Pahokee had to punt on its next
possession. With less than five
minutes to go in the game,
Atlantic was able to get on the
board one more time with a
quick screen pass to Preston
Parker. It was a 92-yard play. The
PAT kick failed. With 1.15 to go
in the final quarter, Pahokee was
able to run the clock out and
hold on to their win.


Pahokee's team has matured
considerably in the last three
games. They are playing as a team
unit and are more focused enter-
ing each game. This Blue Devils
team has re-established its cham-
pionship title hopes with strong
performances the last three
weeks. The defense did give away
a few big plays in the second half,
but never allowed the Eagles to
take the lead in the game. Paho-
kee will be facing Melbourne Cen-
tral Catholic at home this Friday
night. It will be a key district game
for the Blue Devils.

Robert Love was 10 of 18 for
142 yards with one TD and no

les.

Regis made several key tackles.
Defensive End Un'Tavious
Scott forced a fumble and recov-
ered it.
Tamarcus Porter recovered a

fumble for a touchdown.


Mann connected for 17 yards
with flanker Deonte Thompson
with 2:22 left on.the clock.
Clewiston had one last
attempt to take control of the
game but their hopes ended
when Glades Central held. them
on downs.
With less than a minute left to
play, the Glades Central offense
began to run a series of reverse
plays to continue moving the
ball downfield, running out of
bounds to stop the clock. The
Raiders final score came on a
six-yard run by tailback Aston
Samuels as the game ended.
Tiger Head Coach Tommy
Morrell was disappointed in the
outcome, but acknowledged the
team's determination. "Our kids
played their hearts out against a
talented opponent tonight. I'm
proud of the determination they
displayed, but we still came up
short. Against Glades Central,
you pay for mistakes. Fortunate-
ly, we've now gotten our non-
district rivalries out of the way
and must now begin focusing on
our upcoming district contests."
Clewiston's running offense
and the tenacious defense kept
them in the contest most of the
way. Junior tailback Jamal
Hubert gained 108 yards on 19
attempts. Linebacker D.J.
Bartlett led the Tiger, defense
with eight solo tackles, a fumble
recovery and a running sack.
The Raiders showed domi-
nance in the final numbers, with
running back Samuels stacking

Moore Haven


travels to Benjamin


PALM BEACH The Terriers
traveled to North Palm Beach
Benjamin to battle the Bucca-
neers and vie for its second win
of the season. However, the
Bucs were too much for the Ter-
riers, who fell to Benjamin 33-20
in a heartbreaker Friday night.
The Terriers .(1-3) showed a
strong offensive effort, putting
up 20 points against the home-.
town Bucs, but could not hold
off the Benjamin offensive front,
which dominated until late in
the game. ,
Benjamin (4-1) rebounded


from its only loss a 68-0
trouncing of Coral Springs Chris-
tian last week. The Bucs, who
are ranked number five in the
Class IA state poll, have a strong
running game behind T.J.
Strunk.
Moore Haven, which defeat-
ed Hollywood Christian 33-18
last week on the road, has lost
both of its home games by a
touchdown.
The Terriers will once again
be traveling this week to St. John
Neumann this Friday for an after-
noon game at 4 p.m.

Tiger linksters tee off on



Brahmans and Dragons


By Mark Young
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Tiger golfers wrapped up back-to-
back victories last week after top-
pling Okeechobee 167-185 and
then hosted Lake Placid to down
the Dragons 172-193 in impres-

Tiger number one seed Bran-
don Pena, a sophomore, posted a

than Okeechobee's Corey White
to put the Tigers in a great posi-
tion. Senior number two man,
Brett Cameron scored a 44, five
strokes better than his Brahman

U.S. Sugar farmers 'Facing death by a thousand cuts'


WASHINGTON America's
sugar farmers are at a cross-
roads, a sugar industry official
said in a speech at the Center for
Strategic and International Stud-
ies. And if America's trade policy
doesn't evolve, he warned, "U.S.
sugar farmers could be facing
death by a thousand cuts."
"The Central America Free
Trade Agreement will hurt us.
But the combined effect of pend-
ing trade deals with Colombia,
Thailand, South Africa, Panama,


and Brazil could kill us," said
Jack Roney, director of econom-
ic and policy analysis with the
American Sugar Alliance. "If
sugar continues to be used as a
bargaining, chip by our trade
negotiators, we'll be hard
pressed to survive."
The United States is the only
major sugar producing country-
that has traded away huge
chunks of its domestic sugar
market to subsidized "foreign
competitors. In fact, NAFTA and


CAFTA are the only trade deals
between sugar producing coun-
tries to ever include significant
sugar market-access mandates.
Past trade deals force Ameri-
ca to import sugar from 41 coun-
tries every year whether the mar-
ket needs the sugar or not. And
with 21 sugar-producing coun-
tries lined up for new trade
deals, Roney warned that there
may soon be little market left for
efficient U.S. farmers, who do
not receive government checks.,


"The worst part about piece-
meal trade agreements is that by
design they don't address the
foreign subsidies and trade prac-
tices that so greatly distort the
world's sugar market," he said.
The world sugar market is lit-
tle more than a price-volatile
dump market where less than 25
percent of the world's sugar is
sold below world production
costs with the aid of subsidies.
Reform of the distorted dump
sugar market can only be


accomplished at the multilateral
World Trade Organization,
Roney told the group. And that,
he said, is where the Administra-
tion should be focusing all of its
efforts, not on new trade deals.
"We are not against free
trade. Like this Administration,
We are for free trade trade

Martinez announces AG bill passage


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
announced Senate passage of
over $52 million in agricultural
project funding specifically for
Florida. Included in the Senate
Agriculture Appropriations bill is
$40 million for Citrus Canker
Eradication. The bill passed the
Senate (97-2) .today. Differences
with the U.S. House of Repre-
sentatives must be reconciled
before the measure can proceed
to the White House.
"The biggest chunk of this
funding is the most critical to


Florida agriculture," said Senator
Martinez. "Citrus Canker is liter-
ally destroying one of Florida's
most important crops. I'm glad
my colleagues recognize that fact
but there's more that needs to be
done, especially in the area of
compensation. I would especial-
ly like to thanik Senator Bob Ben-
nett for agreeing to bring up the
canker compensation matter in
conference."
In addition to securing funds
for citrus canker eradication,
Senator Martinez requested of
Senate leadership that compen-


station funds be added during
negotiations with the House of
Representatives.
"Agriculture is a huge part of
Florida's economy," said Sen.
Martinez. "We must continue to
study and research ways to
improve that industry."
The majority of the remaining
funds targeted for Florida
address agricultural research. For
instance, Senator Martinez was
able to secure $3.6 million for
Florida State University to study
risk reduction for agricultural
crops; $6 million for Floriculture
& Nursery Research Initiative to


address critical issues related to
pests and diseases and environ-
mental management; $700,000
for the University of Central Flori-
da to study Citrus Chloroplast
Genomics and Genetic Engineer-
ing; $494,000 for Florida Citrus
Mutual Citrus Canker Research;
$446,000 for Florida Citrus Mutu-
al Diaprepes Research; $350,000
for the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Lake Okeechobee Water-
shed Planning; and $50,000 for
the Broward County Rabies Vac-
cine Program.


that's free of all subsidies and all
market distortions," Roney con-
cluded. "That's why we remain
perplexed by sugar's inclusion in
,bilateral trade deals. Let's go to
the WTO and deal with this glob-
al issue once and for all so we
can compete like businessmen
on a level playing field."

New Orleans boys' school to


reopen at UF 4-H youth camp


NEW ORLEANS, La. Desire
Street Academy, a private school
in New Orleans for underprivi-
leged boys, will reopen Oct. 3 at
a 4-H youth camp in Niceville,
Fla., thanks to the University of
Florida extension service and the
school's development director,
Florida Gator football star Danny
Wuerffel.
The school, which closed
after Hurricane Katrina battered
New Orleans, will lease the Tim-
poochee 4-H Center, better
known as Camp Timpoochee.
About 100 boys in grades 7-12
will live and study at the camp-
until May 20, 2006. The students
are scattered across the United
States, living in shelters or the
homes of friends and relatives.
Larry Arrington, dean for
extension at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
in Gainesville, said the UF exten-
sion service is committed to
assisting in recovery efforts for
victims of the Gulf Coast storm.
"When we learned there was
a possibility of housing these
boys at the camp, we moved
quickly to make it happen, and
we're very pleased that every-
thing worked out so well,"
Arrington said.
Camp Timpoochee is operat-
ed by 4-H, the youth develop-
ment program of UF's extension
service that has offices in every
Florida county, he said. Arrange-
ments to lease the camp to
Desire Street Academy began
about one week ago when
Lamar Christenberry, UF Escam-
bia County extension director,
learned that representatives of
the school were seeking a facili-


ty in Pensacola.
"Camp Timpoochee seemed
like a good fit for everyone con-
cerned," Christenberry said.
"Most of the camp's 4-H activi-
ties take place during the sum-
mer, so it's available for other
uses during the rest of the year."
Arrington said Wuerffel met
with UF extension administra-
tors, and a contract is being
finalized.
Numerous other users had
already booked the camp,
Arrington said, but under the cir-
cumstances they were willing to
make new plans, and UF per-
sonnel are working with them to
find suitable alternate facilities.
The UF extension service is
working with Desire Street Acad-
emy to ensure the camp's facili-
ties meet the school's needs.
Located on about 35 acres,
the camp can house 140 people
and includes cabins, conference
rooms, a dining hall and an audi-
torium, Arrington said. Some
additional features already locat-
ed at Camp Timpoochee will
provide new opportunities for
the students, including a beach,
outdoor team-building course
and a marine laboratory.
Desire Street Academy teach-
ers and administrators will
resume their duties when the
school reopens and are current-
ly assisting with preparations at
Camp Timpoochee, he said. The
school will also provide person-
nel to supervise the students and
handle their day-to-day needs.
Marilyn Norman, UF assistant
dean for 4-H youth development
programs, said UF extension
agents will help the students


from the New Orleans academy
launch their own 4-H clubs.
"With its emphasis on leader-
ship, citizenship and life skills, 4-
H can add a new dimension to
the lives of these young men,"
she said. "The 4-H activities will
enhance the learning environ-
ment for these youth, and we
can't wait to get started."
Mo Leverett, executive direc-
tor of the school's parent organi-
zation, Desire Street Ministries,
co-founded the New Orleans
academy in 2002. He said the
boys are looking forward to
reuniting with their classmates,
and that will be an important
step for them in recovering from
Hurricane Katrina. About 60 per-
cent of Desire Street Academy's
190 students have been located
since the hurricane struck New
Orleans, Leverett said. Depend-
ing on their circumstances, par-
ents of the students going to
Camp Timpoochee may relocate
to Niceville or remain in other
areas.
Desire Street Academy will
eventually return to New
Orleans, but specific plans have
not been made, said Wuerffel, a
former UF football quarterback
who led the Gators to a national
championship in 1996.
"We will overcome the chal-
lenges we face, and it will make
our future accomplishments
that much sweeter," he said.
"Our top priority right now is
getting things back on track for
our students. We are deeply
thankful to UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences for
offering us a place to make that
happen."


What's chewing my oak tree?


As if our local trees have not
had enough damage from last
year's storms, several office vis-
itors have recently asked for
help in getting rid of a critter
that seems to be eating .up
many oak trees. While the
Pinkstriped Oakworm is not a
new pest to our area, it seems
to have captured the attention
of several homeowners, and is
a good subject for this week's
lawn and garden article.
According to UF Entomolo-
gist John Foltz, there are sever-
al caterpillars that can chew off
the leaves on local oak trees.
When caterpillars are numer-
ous, they can quickly strip trees
of their foliage. Most serious
outbreaks occur in late sum-
mer to fall. While oak trees in
forests generally survive these
invasions, greater damage is
noted in urban areas, where
leaves become ragged or dis-
appear, and the bugs and their
waste material is a nuisance.
The Pinkstriped Oakworm
(Anisota virginiensis) can be
found throughout the eastern
U.S. and up into Canada. In
Florida, there are two other
related species of these oak-
eating silk moth caterpillars
that differ in color, The caterpil-
lars now seen in local areas are
greenish brown with four pink
stripes running the length of
the body. Their heads are fairly
large and green in color. These
oakworms can grow to about
two inches long, and have a
pair of long, curved black
"horns".
During cooler months, the
oakworms rest in the soil as
dark brown pupa. The adult
moths emerge in late spring.
They appear brownish red with
a purplish tint on the front
wings with a small white dot.


Moths measure 2-3 inches
from head to the tip, and the
wings are usually folded back
over the body. Once they mate,
the female lays egg clusters
under the leaves, and the little
critters begin to chew up leaves
for 5-6 weeks.
, Oakworm populations can
become large enough to com-
pletely strip trees. Most oaks
can handle one such defolia-
tion with little impact' on their
health. However, repeated
defoliations will weaken the
trees and lead to infestation by
secondary pests and diseases.
Trees that have been stressed
by flooding or wind are more
likely to suffer from oakworm
feeding.
Here are some steps for pro-
moting tree vigor and reducing
oakworm insect populations:
Provide appropriate water
and nutrients to the tree
throughout the growing sea-
son. Avoid over or under appli-
cations of both irrigation and
fertilizers, which may stress the
tree and make it more attrac-
tive to caterpillars.
Watch for the moths and
look for clusters of small yel-
low bumps under the leaves.
Remove these eggs and the
young colonies of worms from
the lower branches. Trim them
off, smash them, or bag them
with household waste disposal
- not yard trash.
If large numbers of cater-
pillars are too high for hand
removal, contact a pest control
operator for application of an
appropriate insecticide.
Use of insecticides contain-
ing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt)
can reduce caterpillar popula-
tions with little impact to other
beneficial insects. Other chem-
ical insecticides can also be


used, but many of these home-
owner products can kill the
good with the bad, so careful
application is imperative. Be
sure to always read and follow
all label directions when using
any pesticide.
The timing of sprays is also
important. Smaller caterpillars
are easier to manage than larg-
er caterpillars,'so quick action
after initial identification will
reduce leaf loss. And, a second
application of insecticide with-
in a month of the first outbreak
may help reduce the second
generation of these hungry
worms.
Larger trees can probably
cope with some leaf loss, how-
ever, trees that are stressed and
smaller, younger trees are better
candidates for insecticidal treat-
ments. If larger trees are to be
sprayed, consider that a
licensed pest control operator
has the power equipment need-
ed to reach to tops of tall trees.
As with any pest control
program, identification of the
pest is the first step. If you sus-
pect that oakworms are taking
your oaks out to lunch (and
dinner) place a few live, un-
smashed worms into a bag or
other container and bring them
to our office for positive ID.
Don't leave them sitting on
your dashboard in the sun, as
cooked caterpillars are a bit
more difficult to identify than
fresh ones.
Those with digital cameras
that can get up close and per-
sonal can send us a photo of
your offending bug. We will be
happy to identify them for you
- and if we can't, we can send
them on to other University of
Florida faculty that will be able
to tell us what's bugging your
oak trees.

Back-to-school tip for parents: Get involved now


BURBANK, Calif. Parents,
fall means getting your children
committed to their studies, but it's
also the ideal time for you to
make commitments to your
child's school.
Studies show that parental
involvement in a child's school
and learning is key to a child's
success, and contributes to fewer
behavioral problems, better per-
formance in school and a greater
chance of high school graduation.
"Education is like a puzzle,
and the parents are such an
important piece of that puzzle,"
said Dianna Bartles, a fifth-grade
teacher in Ohio and a Disney
Teacher Award Honoree. "You
can always tell when a parent is
taking an interest in a child's
assignments and talking to the
child about what is going'on at
school. Even very shy students
like to say, 'My mom said' or 'My
dad told me.' Students carry
words from their parents as pre-
cious gems to be used in class dis-
cussion and conversations."
Parents who are involved with
their schools can better monitor


classroom activities and coordi-
nate their efforts with teachers.
And research suggests that the
teachers of students with highly
involved parents tend to give
greater attention to those stu-
dents, and to identify learning
problems at an earlier age.
"Lack of parent involvement in
reading or helping with home-
work puts children at a disadvan-
tage," said Dara Feldman, a
kindergarten teacher in Maryland
named the Outstanding Elemen-
tary School Teacher of the Year by
the Disney Teacher Awards.
"Often parents of young children
don't know how important it is to
read and talk to their children. It's
not that they are bad parents, they
just:don't know how important
that is to their child's language
development. Those kids come to
school less prepared."
Here are a number of sugges-
tions from top educators for ways
parents can get involved in their
children's learning:
Volunteer-teachers are always
in need of chaperones, field trip
drivers, guest speakers and even


classroom assistants. Every par-
ent has a talent they can use to
help the class learn.
"I deliberately poll the parents
to see what level of involvement
they can provide," said David
Vixie, a middle school teacher in
California and the 2005 Disney
Teacher of the Year. "Can they
drive, build, make phone calls,
provide supplies for simulations
or field trips, be presenters on top-
ics of curriculum? I invite them to
participate."
Keep in contact with the
teacher-parents who stay
informed by talking regularly with
teachers who have children who
excel in class and have fewer dis-
cipline problems, says Disney
Honoree Roberta Patterson of
California. Parent-teacher confer-
ences and PTA meetings are the
traditional ways to keep in con-
tact, but regular e-mail conversa-
tion is a convenient and effective
way to keep in touch.
Do homework together -
working together is a great way to
make sure a child is learning and
a chance to spend some time


together. Parents shouldn't be
intimidated if an older child is
learning something they don't
understand they can have the
child teach it to them. Several Dis-
ney Honorees say that having stu-
dents teach a difficult concept is
one of the best ways for them to
learn it themselves.
Model behaviors if parents
want children to value reading
and studying, they should not
only read to their young children,
but let their older children see
them reading and learning about
new things.
"You don't have to be a perfect
parent, but children are like clay,
molded by the people around
them," said Bartles. '"A child who
sees a parent reading a book and
laughing aloud will learn that
reading can be entertaining. A
child who sees a parent reading
the newspaper and commenting
on articles will see that reading
can be informative. Give me a
parent who keeps a journal, and
I'll show you a student with a
built-in desire to write."
Attend meetings and events-In


addition to regular parent-teacher
and PTA meetings, many schools
offer special nights for parents
and their children. Events
planned in Feldman's school this
year include math and reading
nights, computer family nights,.
study circles and even parenting
seminars focusing on important
topics like Internet safety, and
stress management.
Teachers and families recog-
nize that time is often a challenge
for everyone. "Our greatest obsta-
cle to successful parental involve-
ment is not getting people inter-
ested, it's finding time for all of us
to coordinate and plan events and
time for the parents to attend,"
added Feldman, who also serves
as the family outreach coordina-
tor for her diverse school. "'Some
of the families in my school are
working two or three jobs, so they
are exhausted."
Teachers agree with the
research on the importance of
having parents involved with their
schools. In a recent online survey
of Disney Teacher Award winners
from the past 15 years, more than


40 percent of those who respond-
ed indicated that more parental
involvement is one of the top two
things that will most improve edu-
cation in the United States. In
explaining their preference for
more parental involvement, the
survey respondents suggested
that greater support from parents
and the community would make
education a high priority.
One respondent said, "If every
family valued education and let
their children know that, there
would be a completely different
attitude towards education."
"Parents are their child's first
teachers and should never stop
playing that role," said Terry
Wick, vice president, Disney
Worldwide Outreach. "As an
organization, we make sure to
honor teachers every year, but we
want to make sure that parents
also understand the indispensa-
ble role they play in their child's
education. The classroom is just
one learning environment -
young people are learning all day,
everyday."


Foley encouraged by disaster


recovery act passage in senate


Foley: This is a
good start but
problems exist
WASHINGTON D.C. Con-
gressman Mark Foley (FL-16) said
he was encouraged by the Senate
Committee passage of a modified
version of the Disaster Recovery
Act of 2005 which he introduced
with Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
in April. The legislation will make
changes to the disaster recovery
efforts of the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA).
The bill was a direct result of the
experiences of millions of Floridi-
ans as they rebuilt in the wake of
the nation's most costly series of
storms that hit the state last sum-
mer.
"The victims of Katrina arid
possibly Rita can be encouraged
by the progress of this bill. We


learned many lessons after four
hurricanes in Florida. We also
overcame many obstacles fed-
eral bureaucracy shouldn't have
been one of them," said Foley,
whose district suffered direct hits
from three hurricanes in 2004.
"This legislation reflects many of
the lessons we learned last sum-
mer and will offer solutions for
the headaches we hope to pre-
vent for the victims of Katrina.
"This is a good start, but these
problems are not confined to
only the storms of 2005. 1 hope
we can make these changes per-
manent to prevent the inevitable
headaches from the inevitable
hurricanes to come. We have to
stop taking one-year approaches
to structural problems.
"Too many of Florida's resi-
dents and communities are still
waiting .eight months later to
receive reimbursement from
FEMA for debris clean up and


expenses," said Sen. Martinez.
"And we have too many Florida
residents that are living in tempo-
rary shelters and communities on
the verge of bankruptcy because
of debt incurred in order to
remove tons of debris from their
streets and homes. We must do
better than this."
Foley's Disaster Recovery Act
has three major components:
Requires FEMA to pay locali-
ties up to 50 percent of eligible
Public Assistance (PA) monies no
later than 60 days after an eligible
claim is filed.
I* Requires FEMA to reim-
burse localities for the clearing
and removal of debris on all
emergency access roads (those
that require access by emergency
personnel during natural disas-
ters);
Makes debris removal from
private lands an eligible claim for
federal assistance.


Visit Florida achieves travel first

with innovative down towns


TALLAHASSEE VISIT
FLORIDA, the state's official
source for travel planning, in part-
nership with the Florida Depart-
ment of State and the Florida
Redevelopment Association, is
hosting the inaugural Down-
towns & Small Towns Forum,
Oct. 13-15. The two and half day
program will be based in Delray
Beach, and will have additional
sessions in Fort Lauderdale and
West Palm Beach.
This innovative gathering of
Florida tourism industry leaders
and other non-traditional tourism
partners such as arts and cultural
organizations, downtown devel-
opment authorities, community
redevelopment agencies, Main
Street programs, city/county
planners, etc. is designed to pro-
vide actionable, tangible tools to
effectively promote Florida's
downtown and small towns
through the use of models and


success stories from around the
Sunshine State.
"By providing this innovative
and educational Forum, we are
leveraging the great appeal of our
cultural heritage assets, which
are concentrated in the state's
downtown and small towns,
while supporting the economic
development of these areas." said
Bud Nocera, president and chief
executive officer of VISIT FLORI-
DA.
Forum speakers include Flori-
da Secretary of State, Glenda E.
Hood and many Florida Mayors.
Session topics include design,
planning and transportation;
leadership; arts and cultural
assets; tourism marketing; enter-
tainment and events; multi-cul-
tural diversity; preservation and
conservation; cleanliness and
safety, and provide hands-on
knowledge and interaction with
local experts.


The forum is an extension of
last year's successful Downtowns
& Small Towns multi-year adver-
tising program, which addressed
the demand for cultural heritage
travel by focusing on the charm,
vibrancy and revitalization of the
Sunshine State's cities and towns.
The year-old Downtowns &
Small Towns program marks the
first time a state organization has
bundled its downtown and small
town tourism experiences under
one development and marketing
umbrella for theentire state.
"VISIT Florida's Downtowns
& Small Towns program is in
response to consumer travel pref-
erences for authenticity, regional
culture and mingling with the
locals," said Kerri Post, vice presi-
dent of new product develop-
mehnt for VISIT FLORIDA, who
helped craft the program.
"Downtowns are the heart and
soul of cities."
