Local concerns on safe


By Bill Fabian
. HENDRY/GLADES COUNTY
S- Horror stories of rape and
murder have become common
knowledge. after stories were
told by those housed in emer-
gency shelters in New Orleans,
during and after the devastation
of Hurricane Katrina.
News reports were especial-
ly inundated with controversy
when news cameras were able
to find ways into the crowds of
survivors, many of whom


shared stories of truly despica-
ble human behavior.
Similar controversy erupted
when a report estimated that
more than 4,500 registered sex
offenders in New Orleans and
throughout the Gulf Coast were
scattered and misplaced by the
established system for keeping
them accountable.
The mass confusion and
destruction caused by the
ruinous hurricane led to dam-
age and possibly, the complete
destruction of all records of


thousands of sex offenders and
sexual predators. Therefore, not
only is there no way to track the
offenders, but most of the crim-
inals may never be found or
identified by the authorities
again.'
Other reports generally
revealed that while displaced
hurricane evacuees were shel-
tered in the hurricane-ravaged
areas, women were. being
raped. Stories of women unable
to go into bathrooms without
bringing someone else for pro-


tection from, rapists were
among the dreadful events.
These accounts have raised
red flags about who in particu-
lar should be allowed to enter
an emergency shelter. In fact,
before Hurricane Katrina, a
Florida state policy took effect
on June 1, the beginning of hur-
ricane season, which banned
sex offenders being tracked by
the state from public emer-
gency shelters, and required
them instead to be sheltered in
prisons during an emergency.

Belle Glade veterinarian visits


By Mark Young
CLEWISTON Schools and
community organizations in
Belle Glade know that it doesn't
take much prodding io get their
hometown veterinarian to get
involved, but when Cleiston's
WVestside Elementary contacted
Doctor Noelle Savedoff, D.V.M, of
Doc Savvv's Animal Hospital in
Belle Glade, she didn't hesitate to
make the trip, or express how
excited she was at the opportuni-
ty.
"It means the world to me,
especially in this case," said Doc
Savvy. "Cynthia De Las Salas
called to invite me to speak to
her first grade class, as they were
studying about pets this month.
She also told me that she reads
my pet column to them. I was so
flattered to hear that. How could
I say no? I have a regular annual
gig at Belle Glade Elementary
Pre- K. I look forward to that
too."
Doc Savvy is the weekly
author of the Pet Corner and has
the Savvy Vet Show on 95.5 that
airs every Thursday morning at
10:30 a.m. when she shares the
air with the ever-entertaining
Mike Dee. The pair take on chal-
lenging pet questions from their
audience all the while having a

little fun along the way. Doc
Savvy puts that special touch into
her weekly column, as well and
she was very appreciative that
her weekly advice was being
used as an educational tool.,
Doc Savvy made the trek to
Clewiston Oct. 5 and was under
the impression she was speaking
to "a" first grade class. Much to
her surprise, she was going to


speak to "the" first grade class,
more than 100 children in all.
"It was wonderful, the kids
and teachers were great," she
said. "I never spoke to so many
six-year-olds at once. I soon real-
ized I was speaking to five first
grade classes combined to a
grand total of about 125 kids! We

Five Acre Field on Saturday,
Oct. 8.
The Robert Nail Fun Day
and Cow Flop was held to

In addition to the barbecue,

line, a.k.a. "the bounce
house".
The fundraising efforts
resulted in a total benefit of
more than $4,000, according
to Abby Moss and Ivette
Jimenez, who helped organize
the event.
The total amount is all prof-
it, according to Ms. Moss, and
the money will all go towards
helping fund Robert's rehabili-


station and medical support
costs for the next several
months.
The event also featured live
music by local residents. The
music was played at a tent
provided by Julia Leyva, who
also provided audio equip-
ment and a D.J. system. Ivette

ered to enjoy the music and
barbecue.

Pet of the Week winner!


You talking to me! I said, are you talking to me! Can't help
to recall Robert Deniro's character in Taxi Driver when
gazing into the knowing stare of "Boogers" or "Boo" .as
this week's Pet of the Week winner. Boo may have an
edge in a staring contest, but his owners, Robert and
Sharon Wiley, of Clewiston, refer to Boo as the comedi-
an in the family and says, "He likes to make us laugh and
smile. But at the end of a long day, Boogers likes nothing
better than to cuddle in your lap or snuggle next to you
in bed and watch TV and fall asleep. He is a happy, play-
ful, little four-year-old dog." Boogers has won a day at
the pet spa, sponsored by Belle Glade Veterinarian Doc
Savvy at Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital. She can be con-
tacted at (561) 996-5500. If you have any interesting pho-
tos of your pet, submit them to myoung@newszap.com

NEEDED MORE SECURITY: I'm calling about an article that was post-
ed in the newspaper awhile back about Brown Sugar and the incident of
the shooting that took place. I'm a senior citizen of Harlem and have
been for about 50 years. My respect goes out to the family, but I totally feel
like it was Hendry County Sheriff's Department was to blame for every-
thing that happened because whenever you have a festival that takes
place, I feel that the area should have been heavily secured, as it did for
the Sugar Festival.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. It should be noted that the shooting
incident occurred after the Brown Sugar festivities had already come to
a close. Local law enforcement agencies provided security for the festi-
val itself, which went off without a hitch.

MORE INTEGRITY THAN SOME: Thank you for trying to keep us
informed of the hospital in Clewistoh. I personally think that the board,
based on the three members I know, has as much integrity as anyone in
the south part of the state. Far more than some local large businesses.

first dog for the first time in my life!
I have no idea about shots, and
care for him. Please, help! Tell me
Doc, Where do I start? Signed,
Clueless in Clewiston.
A: Well hello there Clueless!
Ok, well let's start at the beginning.
Sounds like you need to establish
yourself with a veterinarian. A
pup's first visit for a check up and
de-wormer should start at about
six weeks of age. If you purchased
a puppy, he should be at least eight
weeks old to be sold. That's the
law! Giving away pups is a differ-
ent situation. Vaccinations, more
de-wormers, further check ups,
starting on heartworm, and flea
prevention at eight weeks. Then
another repeat of the previous at
12 weeks, and 16 weeks of age.
The only thing different is that he
will get a rabies vaccination at 16
weeks of age. All the other aspects
of care like feeding, puppy train-
ing, potty training, and any other
health questions should be
brought up with your veterinarian
at your visits. Make sure one of
those questions include, "Where
do I go if I have a pet emergency?"
It's very important to know and
trust your vet! Remember, your
veterinarian is the other family
doctor!
Take care, and hope you're not
so "Clueless" anymore! Doc Savvy.

Harry has lots of anxiety. He freaks

him something for his nerves?
Jenny, in Wellington.
A: Hey Jenny. Yes! There is
something you can give Harry, and
no it's not Prozac! As long as his
problem is situational anxiety and
not a chronic condition, then Ace-
promazine may just do the trick
(No Pun!). Mostly, I prescribe this
medication for summer storm
anxiety. As long as Harry is in good
health, and has no history of
seizures, this should be an effec-
tive choice. Call your veterinarian
to see if they would feel that Harry
is a good candidate for Acepro-
mazine, and see what a difference
it can make. Happy Halloween

Appetizers and banquets; get involved


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When we talked about
churches at one conference, four
groups of members were dis-
cerned. There
were those: '.
"Committed"
in the center of .
things, those l eftia
who could be -
counted on to
be a part but
didn't want to
get too
"involved", Rev. Samuel S.
and those who Thomas
were some-
what active but on the periphery,
and those might include on your
"F.B.O." ("for burial only!) list.
The presenter noted that the clos-
er you got to the center of activity,
the fewer people you could find.
Now, that's not unusual and it's
been going on for centuries.
There is a parable about a rich
young man (Mathewl9:16ff) and
he asks the Lord what he must do
to inherit eternal life. Jesus gives
him a recap of the command-


ments and tells him to love his
neighbors as himself. The young
man says, "All these I have keep,
what do I still lack? (verse 20)."
Jesus answers, "If you want to be
perfect, go, sell your possessions
and give to the poor, and you will
have treasure in heaven. Then
come, follow me. (verse 21)."
That sent the young man pack-
ing: It involved a commitment
that he didn't want to make. It
seems he was willing to get
involved, but when the cost of his
involvement was going to go up,
he pulled out. We say casually
that: He or she is "involved" with
someone" and we talk about a
romantic kind of attachment. The
complaint comes that "I can't get
him (or maybe, her) to commit!"
Meaning the "involvement" is just
not enough.. The appeterizer of
involvement only whets the
appetite for the banquet of com-
mitment the involvement is not
an end in itself but only a prelude
to a next step that is totally fulfill-
ing. That's why the young man in
the gospel account was reported
to have "went away sad" because
his involvement opened the door
to a vision of what might come


with the depth of commitment
and he .began to see what would
be lost by his not taking the next
step. In reality, I cannot think of
anything in my life that has been'
really satisfying that hasn't
required some commitment on
my part.
It means some sacrifices and
some "laying it on the line" to be
committed to a career, a mar-
riage, friendship, hobbies, com-
munities, organizations you
name it. It is universal, though,
that those who are the most com-
mitted are the first to tell you that
they get the most out of those
relationship. Whether it is a lodge
or service club, marriage, special
friendship, whatever, those who
share them will tell you of the joy
and satisfaction that comes from
the commitment.
So it is with the things of God.
If you are involved, all well and
good. Like the rich young man in
the parable, you can get a vision
of what it is to be committed. If
you're on the periphery of things,
all well and good. You can get a
vision of what it means to be
involved. If you 're on the "F.B.O.
list", you'll get the vision someday


even if it isn't here!
The wonder, beauty and
nature of faith is that it takes us
from casual acquaintance to
involvement to commitment -
each at our own pace and at the
right moment. God is patient. We
don't know what happened to the
rich young man in the parable -
whether he went home and
changed his mind later or
whether he spent his life wonder-
ing, "what if...?" Or if he worked
to try to consciously forget the
encounter one day with the Lord.
We do know, though, that
there were many like him that
asked the question he asked:
"What must I do to inherit eternal
life?" They responded differently
and they are in the majority. We're
in good company when we take
that next step toward the lifelong
commitment with God.
One person asked what the
difference really was. He was
advised, "It's like your breakfast in
the morning bacon and eggs.
The chicken is involved, but the
pig is committed."
Yes, it can come with a high
cost, but is the joy, satisfaction
and fulfillment that it brings, too.


Sour mild and the really bad attitudes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Water is refreshing. On a hot
day I enjoy a cold iced tea or an
ice cold Diet Mountain Dew.
Orange juice is
still one of my
all time
favorites. But
every now and
then there is
nothing that
beats the juice
of the cow.
There is noth-
ing much bet- PastorJohn
ter than drink- Hicks
ing a nice, ice
cold glass of milk, especially with
a warm chocolate chip cookie or
a rich piece of cake.
Some years ago, I readied
myself for a cow juice blessing. I


had just taken a batch of cookies
out of the oven and popped one
in my mouth. I reached in the
refrigerator and took out the jug
of milk and took a couple of
gulps to help wash it down.
(That freedom was curtailed
when I got married!)
What happened next, howev-
er, was not the joy that I had envi-
sioned. The cookie experience
and all the good that went along
with it was ruined as I spewed
out what I had just taken in. The
milk was sour. I learned that day
that there is a price to be paid for
leaving milk out too long. Bad
milk can ruin a good thing. Good
milk turns bad when it's not kept
cool enough.
Good dispositions can turn
bad for the same reason. If we let
aggravations or irritations sim-


mer too long without giving
them a period of time for cooling
off, we can stew ourselves into a
bad attitude. Just-like bad milk,
bad attitudes can ruin a good
thing.
In the tenth chapter of the
Gospel of Luke we find a classic
example of the sweet becoming
sour, of good becoming bad.
Martha invited Jesus and the dis-
ciples to dinner. While Martha
was busy doing all of the things
that needed to be done, her sister
was sitting down listening to
Jesus teach. This annoyed
Martha to no end. What had
started out to be an attitude of joy
and service for someone special
quickly curdled. Martha lost per-
spective and her focus turned
more towards herself and her sit-
uation. With time, she developed


an attitude, and her attitude
spoiled the gift she was offering.
A bad attitude can ruin a good
thing. Satan knows that. Satan
uses that. Notice that he didn't
take Martha out of the kitchen -
he took away her purpose in the
kitchen. The adversary won't
turn you against the church he
will turn you toward yourself in
the church. He won't take you
away from your work he'll
take away your joy in your work.
There is a life-lesson here for
us to embrace. To keep an atti-
tude from souring, treat it like
you would a jug of milk: Keep it
cool and check it regularly to
make sure it's good.
"Pleasant words (and atti-
tudes) are a honeycomb, sweet
to the soul and healing to the
bones." (Proverbs 16:24)


Breast cancer patients may be more susceptible


NEW YORK Researchers
have found a dangerous link
between breast cancer and
melanoma. In a recent study,
statistics show that women diag-
nosed with breast cancer appear
to have an increased risk of
melanoma, particularly during
the first year following diagnosis
of the breast tumor.
"A woman with breast cancer
should be considered at high
risk for melanoma, and should
be monitored very closely,"
reported Dr. Rony Weitzen, Insti-
tute of Oncology, Sheba Medical
Center, in Tel Hashomer, Israel.
Out of 51,000 female breast can-
cer patients in Israel between
1960 and 2000, 276 were report-
ed to have melanoma, most of
them within the year of their
breast cancer diagnosis.
Although the reason for this
correlation is unknown at this
time, Dr. Weitzen hypothesized
the link might reflect treatment
effects, or changes in hormone
cycles following breast cancer
therapy. Whatever the reason,
there are preventative actions
you can take to protect yourself
from melanoma.
According to the Skin Cancer
Foundation, melanoma, the
deadliest form of skin cancer,
kills more young women than
any other cancer. It is now the
most common cancer in young
women aged 25-29, second only
to breast cancer in women aged
30-34.
Similar to breast cancer, the
best way to detect melanoma is
with a monthly self-exam.
Examine your skin from head-
to-toe, and be alert to suspi-
cious-looking moles. Below, the
Skin Cancer Foundation shows
you what to look for: ,
ABCDE's of melanoma:
A Asymmetry
Most early melanomas are


asymmetrical. Common moles
are round and symmetrical.
B- Border
The borders of early
melanomas are often uneven
and may have scalloped or
notched edges. Common moles
have smoother, more even bor-
ders.
C- Color
Common moles usually are
single shades of brown. Varied
shades of brown, tan, or black
are often the first sign of
melanoma. As melanomas
progress, the colors red, white
and blue may appear.
D Diameter
Early melanomas tend to
grow larger than common
moles generally to at least the
size of a pencil eraser.
E Evolving
Look for moles that change in
size, shape or color. Moles that
change over a period of time are
a common warning sign for
melanoma.
For more information about
how to conduct a complete self-
exam, please visit www.skin-
cancer.org.
In addition to monthly self-
exams, the Foundation recom-
mends taking the following pre-
cautions to protect yourself from
skin cancer:
Have a professional skin
examination once every year.
Protect yourself from the,
sun by applying a broad spec-
trum SPF 15+ sunscreen daily.
Seek the shade, especially
during the sun's peak hours,
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Wear protective clothing,
including a wide-brimmed hat
and UV-blocking sunglasses.
The Skin Cancer Foundation is
the only national and interna-
tional organization concerned
exclusively with the world's
most common malignancy can-

this non-profit organization is to tion, detection, and treatment of
increase public and professional skin cancer.

Muzzle loading season


now open in WMAs


Conditions have improved in
Holey Land and Rotenberger
Wildlife Management Areas
(WMAs), and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) reopened these areas
as of 12 a.m. Sept. 28. These
areas are open for hunting during
muzzleloader season Oct 1-16.
. The Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMA remains closed by
executive order from Kenneth
Haddad, FWC executive director.
The order contains special regu-
lations for this WMA, which are
necessary due to inordinately
high water levels associated with
recent storms that jeopardize
wildlife, particularly deer. The
special regulations prohibit: "
Taking game other than fish
and alligators, the use of vehi-

FWC catches the crafty crocodile


MIAMI When a North Miami
Beach woman stepped outside of
her house to get her newspaper at
7:30 a.m. last Wednesday, she
found a nine-foot long, 200-pound
American crocodile in her carport
instead.
The animal, which has eluded
trappers for three years and
prompted at least 50 calls from resi-
dents, was captured by Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) contracted nui-
sance wildlife trapper Todd Hard-


wick.
FWC biologists tagged,
weighed and measured the male
crocodile before releasing it
unharmed into the. Southern
Glades Wildlife and Environmental
Area in south Miami-Dade County.
It is illegal to kill an American croc-
odile, which has been listed as an
endangered species since 1975.
But as their numbers have
increased from estimates of 300 to
1,000 in the southern tip of the
Florida Peninsula to the Keys, so


have complaint calls from resi-
dents.
Unlike alligators, crocodiles are
shy and reclusive. They can also
hold their breath for up to two
hours. Both qualities make them
difficult to catch, according to
wildlife biologist Tim Regan. This
particular crocodile has been quite
wily, staying away from trappers in
underground culverts.
To report a crocodile of con-
cern, call the Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at (866) FWC-GATOR.

Millions of insects plagued Florida's earliest settlers


By Katherine Walker Worth
As told to MaryAnn Morris
I was born in Naples Aug. 1,
1924 to Forrest Walker and Adnie
Prine Walker. I married Fred
Arnold Worth Feb. 8, 1941. I sup-
pose I'm related to almost every-
one around here one way or
another. My grandfather, James R.
Walker came down from Pine
Level in Manatee County after a
bad freeze in the 1890s to what
was then called Survey Creek, Lee
County, with his wife, Ella and her
half-brother, Jehu Whidden and
his family. They built their log
homes there on 40 acres of land
each they bought from the govern-
ment. It took them six years to pay
for it. Now it's called Bonita
Springs. That's a whole story of its
own, but my daddy, Forrest Walk-
er, was born there and after he
married Mama in Arcadia, they
went to Marco to live.
We didn't live there all the time.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history

*,a r ,-


Mama told me about one time she
and daddy were living in Bean City,
down near Belle Glade. She was
only 14 years old when they were
married and this was soon after.
Papa and granddaddy went away
overnight and she was all alone.
Remember, she was only 14. She
got so scared, she forgot to keep
the smudge pots lit to keep the
mosquitoes away and in the
morning they found the horse
dead, killed by the mosquitoes.
She hated it there and they left


soon after.
My husband's family lived here
in Okeechobee for awhile. He
went to school here in 1926, 27
and 28.
The mosquitoes were bad
when I was young, too. I remem-
ber there were kinfolks who used
a bucket with sand in it and we'd
pick up some dry cow chips to
burn for smoke to keep the bugs
away. We had "insect powder" -
B Brand it was called. It was yel-
low. I don't know exactly what it
was, but we'd sprinkle some on
top of those burning cow chips or
put it in a tin lid on the floor. It
smoked and buddy, it worked! It
would kill everything!
Fred did road building with the
state road department. I would go
with him and we'd live in the state
road camps in a trailer near where
they were building. One time it
was down in Homestead. There
the sand gnats (no-see-ums) were
so bad I'd put diesel fuel on the


Weekly road construction report


screens about every three days to
try and keep them out. They were
just awful and the mosquitoes as
bad!
Granddaddy told that when he
was a young man they hunted cat-
tle around Lake Okeechobee for
Lykes Brothers near where Okee-
chobee is now around Basinger
and Fort Drum. He said the horses
would be knee deep to belly deep
in water. They would take their
bread and their meat that had
been cooked in bear or pork
grease in until it was dried out, but
there were always oranges and
grapefruit growing in the tree ham-
mocks they could eat. He said that
the Indians would plant the seeds
left after they had eaten a piece of
fruit. So after they ate a piece of
fruit, they'd plant the seeds, too.
When me and my husband would
go deer hunting, we'd eat them,
too. Later people would take the
old sour orange root stock and
graft the good citrus on to it.

of the public wishing to camp at
the pubhlc use area adjacent to
the S65C navigation locks off of
U.S. Hwy. 98 near Lorida, will


soon be required to get a free

In the past, no permit was
required. In order to give more

By Ideybis Gonzalez
On Thursday, Sept. 22, students
from Eastside Elementary enjoyed
their Earth Balloon Day. The stu-
dents received the opportunity to
learn the many mysteries of the
earth formations such as: Why are
seashells found on Himalayan
mountaintops? Why is Earth's crust
cracked? And why can Icelanders
swim outdoors in winter?
These are just some of the ques-
tions that were explained to the
child en 'when EafthBallddn' visit-'
ed Eastside Elementary, students
and teachers found the answers to
these questions any many more.
When Earth Balloon, a 20-foot,
hand-painted, inflatable globe took
center stage at Evangelist Assembly
Annex gym for the students and
teachers of Eastside Elementary on


Sept. 22, each teacher entered .their
whole class through a zippered
doorway and looked at the world
from the inside out.
Sitting on Antarctica, "World
Explores" viewed the world's
parched desert browns, rainforest
greens, cold tundra grays, and sap-
phire oceans in continuous panora-
ma. The Earth Balloon was an awe-
inspiring visual, both inside out and
a great educational opportunity for
the students and teachers at East-
side LlcjT,'Iw :c ..ScIol who,
through the modern marvels of
visual science, received the unique
opportunity to visualize the world in
which they live, without ever having
to leave the church grounds.

|$200 million plan expected


to speed

By Pete Gawda
S LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
About 250 people, including city
and county officials, community
leaders, dairymen, ranchers and
fishermen gathered at Jaycee
Park on Lake Okeechobee's
northern shore Monday morn-
'ing to hear Governor Jeb Bush
and other state officials unveil a
Comprehensive $200 million
plan to accelerate the restora-
'tion-and recovery of-Lake-Okee-
jchobee.
"The governor was expected
:| to fly into the Okeechobee air-
port. However, he arrived early
and fog forced him to land in
Stuart and travel by car to Jaycee
:Park, arriving about 10:15 a.m.
:The event had been scheduled
to start at 10 a.m.
Carole Ann Wehle, executive
Director of South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
served as mistress of cere-
monies.
"Our goal is the protection of
SLake Okeechob.ee, the Caloosa-
hatchee River and the St. Lucie
Estuary," she said.
The first speaker she intro-
duced was State Senator Ken
1 Pruitt, a man Ms. Wehle said
possesses a "tremendous
'amount of leadership." She
called Sen. Pruitt: "A very special
t friend to water resources."
Sen. Pruitt said the lake had
reached the breaking point.
"Lake Okeechobee is being
reborn today," the senator said,
Using the comparison of the mir-
acle of childbirth.
The senator drew applause
when he referred to plans for
lowering the lake and keeping it
' 'low.
Ms. Wehle introduced the
governor as "no Johnny Come
Lately" to the environmental
Arena. Noting that Gov. Bush is
known as the education gover-
nor, she referred to him as the "E
governor" with E standing for
'environment and education.
She said there were two
facets to the recovery of Lake
Okeechobee Mother Nature
and our governor.
"Out of crisis does come
opportunity," said Governor
Bush.
The governor gave an
overview of the restoration pro-
gram noting that four years ago
the state committed to the plan
and that today the commitment
is "unwavering".
J "Lake Okeechobee is the
heart of the Florida ecosystem,"
according to the governor.
He said the quality of life and
the quality of the economy
depend on a healthy lake.
"We're here to launch an
aggressive plan to restore the
lake," he said.
He said the majority of the
program would be completed in
five years. However, the gover-
nor said it 'd probably be
done faster if permitting did not
take so long.
The governor drew applause
when he mentioned the need to
speed up the permitting process.

Governor Jeb Bush


He said temporary pumps
would be used next year to sta-
bilize the lake. -
The governor predicted that
revised lake regulations would
reduce the need to send water to
the estuaries.
He mentioned two local proj-
ects the Nubbin Slough and
.the Taylor Creek storm-water
treatment areas as among the
projects designed to. reduce
phosphorous loading to the
lake.
The governor said that by
2008 less fertilizer would be
used, reducing phosphorus
input into the lake.
"This is not just a farming
issue," the governor added. "All
of us have a role to play. This
comprehensive, common-sense
plan will reduce pollution and
better manage the flow of water
while meeting our flood control
and water supply responsibili-
ties."
The governor also predicted
the improvement of land-use
planning. He said by 2011 the
state would prohibit wastewater
residuals being used as fertilizer.
"Success is critical to the
future of our state," according to
Governor Bush.
He said we must find creative
solutions to create a "win-win
situation".
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson remarked that
Florida's population has dou-
bled since restoration efforts
began. While part of our ecology
problems are due to agriculture,
the commissioner blamed part
of it on the increase in popula-
fion.
He stated that 40 percent of
farms and ranches are using
BMPs and .predicted that the fig-
ure would soon be 100 percent.
He said that citrus was ahead of
cattle in that area.
The commissioner talked of
development of new varieties of
grass for pastures and golf
courses that will use more nutri-
ents, thus allowing for less nutri-
ent runoff.'
Representative Joe Negron
spoke of his grandparents instill-
ing in him a love of nature.
"We are stewards of the envi-
ronment," he said, and pledged
to get the funds to get the job
done.
He suggested paying to store
water on private land.
Referring to discharges into
the St. Lucie River -from Lake
Okeechobee, the representative
said the federal government
should not be allowed to pollute
the water when private citizens


aren't.
When questioned after the
program, the Audubon Society's
Dr. Paul Gray advocated bringing
the lake down to 12 feet. He
advocated keeping the lake low
with continuous low-level
releases, which would not dis-
rupt the salinity of the estuaries.
He mentioned the STAs, reser-
voirs and injection wells for
water storage, but noted that
there is still a long, long way to
go on water storage. He was
glad to see the Kissimmee valley
included in the entire restoration
process.
In remarks. to reporters after
the program, Col. Robert Car-
penter from the Jacksonville Dis-
trict of the U. S. Army Corps of
Engineers, stated that a new lake
level regulation schedule would
be in place by January 2007. He
referred to all the factors
involved in lake regulation as a
"Rubic's cube". The process of
gathering public input to be
used in formulating the new
schedule will soon begin. The
colonel said the current sched-
ule is not as balanced as it could
be.
"We know we can do better,"
he added.
However, he predicted that
not everybody would be happy
with the new regulation sched-
ule. Public safety will be a major
concern in arriving at the new
schedule, he said.
The colonel said until there
are sufficient water storage
areas, excessive rains could still
cause higher-level water releas-
es to the estuaries.
As part of the multi-faceted
plan, state agencies are raising
standards and expediting envi-
ronmental requirements to
reduce nutrient loading and bet-
ter address land use.
Carrying out this comprehen-
sive program will require the
combined efforts of SFWMD, the
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP) the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (FDACS) and the
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA).
Among the goals of the pro-
gram are establishment of Total
Maximum Daily Phosphorous
Loads for Lake Okeechobee trib-
utaries by 2007 and implement-
ing mandatory fertilizer BMPs by
2008.
By 2008, BMPs and storm-
water management systems are
expected to cause a net 25 to 50
percent reduction in the current
phosphorous load discharging
from a parcel of land.


How is it possible to save
so much?
The secret behind saving 35%
to 55% on your monthly
prescription costs is that many
medications are "flat-priced."
"Flat-priced" means that all
tablet sizes of a medication cost
about the same. Because these
medications are fiat-priced, an

Corrections.
Representative Mark Foley
was unavailable for comment
and unable to provide any back-
ground information about the
issue.
Glades County officials have
addressed the subject of shel-
tered sex offenders, and held a
hearing to consider the adoption
of "an ordinance providing for
the registration of sexual preda-
tors and sexual offenders at tem-
porary emergency shelters."
If adopted, the county ordi-
nance would establish better
means for keeping emergency
evacuees out of close proximity
to dangerous individuals. There
may be a slight redundancy of
the law, since the state of Florida
already bans such individuals
from emergency shelters. How-
ever, this was not addressed by
the commission, which voted to
approve the ordinance. The
ordinance had been passed in


Highlands County. The draft of-
the ordinance from that county
was presented to the Glades
BOCC, with just a simple name
change from Highlands to
Glades.
A similar ordinance' is in
action in other nearby commu-
nities, where concerns over sex
offenders have also become too
much to ignore. A proposed
ordinance for the city of Clewis-
ton will establish residency pro-
hibition. Hendry County Sheriff
Ronnie Lee asked the commis-
sion to consider adopting an
ordinance that would require
registered sex offenders to
reside at least 2,500 feet away
from a school or any other place
where children are to be regular-
ly present. The ordinance would
also prohibit sexual predators
from using public shelters dur-
ing hurricanes or other disasters,
providing them shelters at the
county jail instead.
There are currently eight reg-
istered sex offenders in Glades
County. These include one sexu-:
al predator, Nathaniel Kelly, who-
has been charged with lewd
assault and sexual battery to a
victim under age 16. Kelly is
being held in the Glades County
Jail in Moore Haven.

'Tigers 1

FORT MYERS The Clewis-
ion Tigers traveled to Bishop
Verot on Friday night and
Unleashed a potent running
attack, led by junior tailback
'Jamal Hubert, to defeat the
Vikings, 33-14. On the night,
Hubert had 190 yards on 16 tries,
Including touchdown runs of 52
and eight yards. "
The victory was not, however,
;an entirely joyous occasion. Tiger
,quarterback Jared Combass suf-
fered a cracked collarbone early
in the third period and will likely
i iss the rest of the regular sea-
son. Combass was running a
'sweep when he was tackled from
behind by a Viking defender and
Shit the ground on his left shoulder.
, The Tigers struck early taking
the opening kickoff and marching
:72 yards on nine snaps to score
with 8:33 left in the first quarter.
Backup tailback Richard Pope got
the last yard off tackle. He had a
previous carry for 13 yards and
,Hubert also chipped in with runs
of 20 and eight yards. Combass
tacked on the point after.
Bishop Verot's early offensive
Fortunes were not that great. After
a first down, the Tiger defense
held on and forced a punt. Return
specialist Richard Pope grabbed
the ball at the Tiger 30 and went
left for about 35 yards and then
veered back across the field dodg-
3ng and eluding defenders until he
sound the end zone for the 70-
yard touchdown. The Tiger punt
receiving team laid down several
perfect blocks to make the score
possible. The point after was low
Pnd blocked.
As the quarter was winding
lown, Verot drove to the Tiger
Spne-yard -line but were foiled
v hen Tiger safety Nate Brinkley
intercepted a pass in the end zone.


Blue Dei

By Nina G. Wills

J PAHOKEE The Pahokee Blue
Sievils made a statement with their
dominating victory over the Royal
Palm Beach Wildcats last Friday
S ight: The Blue Devils want to play
n.n their third consecutive champi-
onship game, and they want to win
it.
: This game was highly anticipat-
Ied by the Blue Devils team, espe-
ifally senior wide receiver and free
safety Tarnarcus Porter. Porter
transferred from Ro. al Palm Beach
High School during the off-season
to join forces with the Blue Devils
He has been a key player in every
game and showed his talent on the
field against former team.
: Pahokee's defense once again
set the tempo of the game holding
the Wildcats to a three-and-out on
the Wildcats' first possession. On
the Wildcats' second possession,
.Porter recovered a fumble in the
Wildcats' territory.
Running back Ricky Gary made
the Wildcats pay for the miscues
with an 11-yard touchdown run
:with 20 seconds remaining in the
first quarter. Gary ran straight up
the middle untouched by Wild-
cat defenders. The point after
attempt was good by Jose
Rodriguez to put the Blue Devils up
early.
On Pahokee's third possession
of the game, senior quarterback
Robert "Rah Rah" Love led the
team down the field, connecting
with Martavious Odoms, the first of
five catches for Odoms on the
night. The Blue Devils were on the
38-yard line of the Wildcats and
were driving for the end zone
before the game, and Pahokee's
momentum was temporarily sus-
pended for severe weather.
SThe Devils' offense seemed to
lose their rhythm coming out of the
20-minute break and was unable to
convert on fourth down, giving the
Ball back to the Wildcats. The Dev-
ils' defense answered the challenge
Sand held the Wildcats to only one
first down in the first half giving
SPahokee a 7-0 lead at the break.
S It looked as if this game would


top Verot 33-14, but lose their key starter


Score board


INI/Bill Fabian
Clewiston High School's varsity cheerleaders are ready for some Tiger Football! The varsity
squad is coached by Lyn Johnston.


The Tigers began another
drive that stretched into the sec-
ond period but turned the ball
back to the Vikings at the 37 when
fullback Carl Whitehead fumbled
the ball away. This time, the
Vikings sustained a drive and
found pay dirt on a five-yard run
by halfback Joey Harrity, followed
by kicker Butch Moore's conver-
sion. On the following series, the
Tiger offense shot itself in the foot
with two penalties and -three
incomplete passes and had to
punt from their 10, giving the
Vikings excellent field position at
the 43.
Bishop Verot drove to the Tiger


18 but the Tigers held and
Moore's 33-yard field goal attempt
sailed left of the uprights. From
their 20, the Tigers immediately
got moving when Hubert trotted
through and around defenders for
25 yards. A few plays later, Com-
bass hooked up with a streaking
John Melton on a sideline pattern
and he raced past two Viking
defenders for a 40-yard scoring
play. The Tigers went for two and
were successful when Combass
flipped a pass to tight end Delvin
Hughes. The teams went to inter-
mission with the Tigers sporting a
21-7 lead.
Combass suffered his injury on


the fifth play of the Tigers first,
third quarter drive and was
replaced by Melton. Staying on
the ground, the Tigers scored on
the sixth play with Hubert getting
the final eight yards. A. run
attempt for the conversion came
up inches short. The Vikings
returned the kickoff to their 44
and wasted no time in scoring
when Miller hit wide out Danny
Cull on a short pass with Cull
breaking loose and going a total
of 56 yards for the touchdown.
Miller converted the extra point to
make it 27-14, Tigers. Clewiston
added their last score in the final
quarter when Hubert broke loose

down the sideline and raced 52
yards. The two-point pass attempt
for the conversion failed.
Tiger coach Tommy Morrell
came away disappointed with his
players' intensity. "I didn't think we
played all that bad," Morrell said. "I
was happy for the victory. We won
the game fairly convincingly, but
there was no intensity. We didn't
seem like we got after it."
The Tiger offensive line put on
a good display of blocking, open-
ing holes for their running corps.
However on both sides of the ball,
the Tigers were plagued with 11
penalties for 85 yards while Bish-
op Verot was only flagged once
for five yards.
The loss of Combass will make
the Tiger's remaining schedule


more difficult. The Tigers travel to
Boca Raton this week to take on a.
solid Pope John Paul team in an
important district match. While
Melton can handle the quarter-
backing chores, his valuable skills
as a wide receiver and defensive
safety will be lost. The Tiger staff
will also have their hands full this
week in preparing another back
up quarterback in the event of
injury to Melton.
Defensively, the Tigers were
led by defensive end Delvin Hugh-
es with five tackles, one assist, a
quarterback sack for a nine-yard
loss, and linebacker D.J. Bartlett
who also had five tackles and an
assist. Safety Jasper Hunter had
an interception and return for 29
yards.


vils get swagger back with dominating win


be very close, but in the second half
the Blue Devils exploded with big
plays. With less than 10 minutes to
go in the third quarter, the Wildcats
mishandled a punt giving the Blue
Devils a first down from the Wild-
cats' 25-yard line. On a third and 5,
Love threw a 17-yard touchdown
pass to Odoms who was wide
open in the middle of the field.
There was not a single Wildcat
defender within five yards of
Odoms and the Blue Devils extend-
ed their advantage over the Wild-
"catsto-a 13701 lead On Pahoke6s
next possession, they started at
their O\\,n 35-lard line, but didn't
stay for long as Love opened the
series with a first down run. On the
next two plays, Love threw to
Odoms and Tanoris Jones.
Jones' catch brought the ball all
the way down to the Wildcats' 17-
yard line. With 9:58 to go in the
fourth quarter, on a quarterback
sneak, Love found his way into the
end zone for the third Blue Devils
touchdown.'
Love threw hit Porter for the
successful two-point conversion to
put the Blue Devils up by a score of
21-0, with time running out on the
Wildcats, who went nowhere on
their next possession.
The Blue Devils wasted no time
in scoring again when Love threw a
perfect spiral to Odoms who out
ran the defender and scored the
fourth touchdown of the night for
the Blue Devils.
Pass protection was the key for
the touchdown strike as the Blue
Devil offensive line allowed Love to
sit tight in the pocket while the play
fully developed, downfield. Love
threw a perfect strike to his open
receiver for the score and Pahokee
jumped out to a 27-0 lead.
In the waning minutes of the,
fourth quarter, Micanor Regis and
Rudy Robinson sacked the Wild-
cats' quarterback, as Pahokee's
defense continued their shutout bid.
Pahokee's offense got the ball one
more time and took advantage of
the opportunity. Love threw a 43-
yard pass to Nikita White who sim-
ply beat the Wildcat defender. The
Wildcats were just unable to keep


up with the speed of the Blue Devils
receivers. Love then threw a nine-
yard pass to Tamarcus Porter who
out jumped the defender for the
fifth Blue Devils touchdown.
The Devils lined up for the PAT,
but it was a fake. Love ran to his
right and zipped the ball to Porter
for the two-point conversion. The
Blue Devils won 35-0 and it was a
solid night for Pahokee on both
sides of the ball. Nikita White,
Janoris Jenkins, and Casey Hopson
knocked the ball away from
recei ers' fuifierIsb'"tiifes. Rudy
Robinson put constant pressure on


the Wildcats' quarterback and Vin-
cent Cheves had one sack and
made key tackles for losses.
"This was a pivotal win for our
team," said Pahokee head coach
Foster. "The team limited their mis-
takes and executed very well."
The passing game opened up
again this week for the Devils. The
protection up front by the offensive
linemen was outstanding. They
gave Love plenty of time to get the
ball into the hands of the talented
Blue Devils receivers. Odoms said.
'his pl.ig5ing into the game was'
simply "catch the ball and score".


Tamarcus Porter was excited to
get into the end zone at least once
against his former team. He'said,
"It feels wonderful. I just can't
explain it." He credits Defensive
Coordinator Rick Lammons for the
dominating play of the defense
everyweek.
"Coach Lammons motivates us
to be fired up. He doesn't let us
slip," said Porter. As Porter looked
around at his team celebrating on
the field, he smiled and said,
"Tonight we got our swagger
back."
The Blue Devils will be at home


this week playing John Carroll. The
game will start at 7:30 p.m.
Team Statistics:
Robert Love was 11 of 20 for
223 yards and had, three for three
touchdowns, rushed for one, and
threw one interception.
Martavious Odoms had five
receptions for 107 yards and a pair

'Gators win their fourth straight


By Mark Young


* The Glades Day Gators contin-
ued their winning ways with a 19-7
.victory over American Heritage
:(Delray) Oct. 7.
The victory was Glades Day's
fourth straight win since their 17-10
road loss to Benjamin in their sea-
'son opener that featured several
severe weather delays. Since that
time, the Gators defeated Clewis-
,ton 19-14, overcame a late deficit to
'beat Florida Christian 12-10,
:pounded district rival Evangelical
.32-12, and improved their season
:record to 4-1 with the victory over
:American Heritage.
The Gators have been relying

scoring strike from Lugo.
The Gators will face off against
the unbeaten St. John Neumann
squad in a key district showdown
at Gator field Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. St.
John Neumann is currently 5-0, but
haven't met up with an overly
strong opponent this year. St. John
Neumann narrowly squeaked by
Moore Haven Sept. 30 by a score of
15-12.
Meanwhile the Gators 'have
been on a roll, winning four
straight and geared up to move
into the top spot of the district with
a victory over St. John Neumann
on Friday night.
The Gatos have a tough game at
home the following week against
King's Academy before wrapping
up district play on the road against
Moore Haven Oct. 28. They wrap
up the regular season at home Nov.
4 against Northwest Christian.

LABELLE The Moore Haven
Terriers traveled once again, but
this time not quite so far to nearby
LaBelle for a non-district show-
down, which was predicted to be
an offensive shootout between
two rival teams.
However, such was not to be
the case, as the Terriers fell way
short to the Cowboys in a 49-6
loss that eliminated the Terriers'
chances to achieve a winning
season.
The first quarter began with a
glimmer of hope for Moore
Haven (1-5, 0-1) with a blistering
76-yard run by junior quarterback
Rod Huggins, who kept the ball
on an option that netted the
game's first touchdown, putting
the Terriers up 6-0 after the
missed PAT.


The Cowboys (4-2, 0-1) quick-
ly discontinued any expectations
of additional scoring by the Terri-
ers. LaBelle running back Matt
Davidson led a Cowboy offense
that devastated the Terriers defen-
sive front and dominated the
game in terms of time of posses-
sion. Davidson ran for two touch-
downs and threw for one more
on a halfback option pass to Chad
Lutkenhaus for a 77-yard score.
The Cowboys capitalized on
Terrier mistakes, including penal-
ties and turnovers, most notably a
fumble by the Terriers that led to
the touchdown pass by Davidson.
The Terriers willcome home
Oct. 14 for a district showdown
with Evangelical Christian (5-2, 0-
1), who were victorious against
Hollywood Christian 44-0 on Oct. 7.

Raiders defeat



Dillard


The Glades Central Raiders
continue their winning streak
in decisive style, defeating Fort
Lauderdale-Dillard last week
33-8. The Raiders kept Dillard
back throughout the game, all
the while playing an aggressive
offense to secure the win.
Quarterback Bryan Mann
set the pace early, scoring a
touchdown off a one-yard run
in the first quarter. Mann was 9-
of-15 for 133 yards before
handing off the ball to sopho-
more quarterback Deandre
Holley.
Having played as running
back before taking over as
quarterback, Holley connected
with Curtis Brown for a touch-


down later in the game. Holley
as a running back in the first
half of the game also had a
touchdown run.
Dillard was unable to stand
up .to the Raiders, and shot
back only in the third quarter
when its quarterback, Bobby
McGee hit a teammate up for a
15-yard touchdown.
The win marks the Raiders'
fifth straight victory, a feat the
team hopes to continue head-
ing into the playoffs and later
this year in its match-up against
local rival Pahokee.
The Raiders prepare for
their next game against Cardi-
nal Gibbons. The team will
play at home tomorrow night.

Sugar prices stable despite storms


CLEWISTON Though the
deadly storm seasons of the past
two years have caused significant
losses among Florida and
Louisiana sugar producers, they
have had virtually no effect on con-
sumer sugar prices a fact directly
attributable to U.S. sugar policy,
said Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent of the Clewiston-based U.S.
Sugar.
."These natural catastrophes,
combined with increasing U.S.
sugar consumption, could have led
to a real crisis," said Coker. "Yet
sugar supplies and prices have
remained stable, because U.S.
sugar policy is flexible and effective.
If our nation's oil policy worked as
well as sugar policy does, we


wouldn't see those price spikes at
the gas pump." '
Last year, Florida suffered an
unprecedented' four hurricanes,
costing the state's sugar growers -
who produce one quarter of the
nation's sugar supply 30 percent
of their crops and some $300 mil-
lion in lost revenues. This year,
southern Louisiana's sugar cane
crop was devastated. First hurt by
Katrina, growers were hit even
harder by Rita, which brought salt
water 15 miles inland and flooded
crops under six feet of water. The
storms could cost Louisiana sugar
producers as much as three-quar-
ters of their crop, a loss that could
be felt'foryears.
Immediately following Katrina,


the U.S. Department of Agriculture
allowed the release of an industry-
funded surplus sugar reserve of
500,000 tons, then increased
imports by about 200,000 tons. As a
result, sugar prices to individual
consumers and food companies -
already nearly a third lower than
those of other developed countries
-will remain stable.
The U.S. the world's largest
consumer of sugar and natural
sweeteners -produces more than
80 percent of these supplies in a
domestic free market that operates
at no cost to taxpayers. If U.S. farm-
ers produce more sugar than they
are allowed to sell based on annual
government estimates, they store
the surplus for the government at


their own expense.
In times of unforeseen short-
ages caused by events such as hur-
ricanes, domestic surpluses and
additional imports address any
shortfalls.
"U.S. sugar policy helps level the
playing field for efficient domestic
producers," Coker said. "Without
this policy, cheap foreign sugar
imports could drive domestic pro-
ducers out of business, making the
U.S. completely dependent on
imported sugar. And if our. experi-
ence with imported oil has taught
us anything, it's the importance of
retaining as much independence
as possible over products that &re
essential to our economy and our
people."


Farm Bureau supports the honey industry


GAINESVILLE Florida ranks
number three in the nation in pro-
duction of honey, right behind Cali-
fornia and North Dakota. But Flori-
da beekeepers are struggling for
survival, beleaguered by pests, hur-
ricanes and low honey prices. They
are seeking ways to guarantee the
continued viability of their industry.
Solutions to their problems
may at least in part lie with
new marketing techniques,
including vertical integration, new
quality standards and developing
a distinctive "brand" to differenti-


ate Florida honey from run-of-the-
mill products.
"We are encouraging producers
and packers to develop a sound
marketing approach to improve
profitability," said Carolee Howe, a
Florida Farm Bureau assistant direc-
tor of agricultural policy assigned to
workwith the apiary segment of the
agricultural industry.
Florida Farm Bureau, the state's
largest general agricultural organi-
zation, brought beekeepers and
packers together with marketing
experts from the Florida Depart-


ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services. The result may be a new
marketing cooperltii e.
Floiwala Agricultue Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson has
expressed concern about setbacks
suffered by the state's honey indus-
try, including destruction of honey-
bee colonies caused by mites and
hurricanes and declining prices
due to cheap, imported honey. He
has assigned the department's Divi-
sion of Marketing and Develop-
ment.to help develop strategies to
ensure the future 1 iabilltv of the


honey industry.
"Many other segments of the
agricultural industry have a stake
in making sure beekeepers con-
tinue to operate in the state,"
Howe said. "Bees are necessary
for pollination of citrus, melons
and many other crops."
Farm Bureau has hosted several.
strategy sessions, the latest with
representatives of the FDACS Mar-
keting Division. At that meeting sev-
eral producers and packers last
week agreed to explore the cre-
ation of a cooperative.


Harris welcomes more funding for citrus canker


Says $53.75 Million
Agriculture Award
will benefit Florida
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) wel-
comed the announcement of an
additional $53.75 million in emer-
gency funding dedicated to eradi-
cate citrus canker in Florida. The
announcement was made Friday,
Sept. 30 by U.S. Department of Agri-
culture Secretary Mike Johanns.


"The decision by the Agriculture
Department to provide additional
emergency funding for citrus
canker reflects the important role
of the citrus industry to Florida's
economy. While this funding is crit-
ical to ensure the continued health
of our $9.1 billion citrus industry, it
is also vital to the financial security
of the 90,000 Floridians whose
work is related to citrus produc-
tion," said Harris.
Aggressive efforts to accelerate
eradication activities remain a pri-
ority for Florida's citrus industry,


which represents 77 percent of U.S.
citrus production, and for individ-
ual residents whose own backyard
trees have not yet been affected by
citrus canker. The active hurricane
season has placed the industry at
greater risk to infestation by the
wind-borne disease. Hurricanes in
2004 were responsible for the
spread of canker and. resulted in
$500 million in damage to the
industry.
"Our vigilance in fighting this
highly contagious bacterial disease
must not wane. I will continue, to


work with the administration to see
that necessary steps are taken to
sustain the vibrancy of the citrus
industry," added Harris.
From the first case of citrus
canker in 1995, the Agriculture
Department has worked together
in support of eradication efforts,
providing more than $378.6 million
in funding to Florida's Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices (FDACS). In addition, Presi-
dent Bush's fiscal year 2006 budget
calls for $42.6 million in citrus
canker funding.


Congressman praises canker relief for citrus growers


Foley: "The Calvary-
has started to arrive"
WASHINGTON, DC Con-
gressman Mark Foley (FL-16)
issued the following statement in


response to the United States
Department of Agriculture's deci-
sion to target $200 million for Flori-
da's commercial citrus growers for
losses suffered as a result of citrus
canker:
"The cavalry has started to


arrive. Growers -hrtouIout Florida
are in desperate neid oi relief and I
want to thank Secretary Johanns for
recognizing the dangerous situation
Florida's citrus industry finds itself
in. After years of battling canker, we
experienced the perfecI conditions


for canker to strengthen and spread
across our state after the hurricanes
of last year. Our canker eradication
program will ultimately fail without
compensating the growers who
participate and that is exactly what
this money does."

USDA issues final 2004 peanut/cotton pay out funds


GAINESVILLE Peanut and
upland cotton farmers will soon
be receiving 2004 crop counter-
cyclical payments of $81 per short
ton for peanuts and 13.73-cents-
per-pound for upland cotton,
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for USDAs Farm
Service Agency (FSA). .
Required by the 2002 Farm Bill,
final counter-cyclical program
(CCP) payments for peanuts and
upland cotton are made after the
end of the marketing year. The
2002 Farm Bill provides for two par-
tial 2004 crop CCP payments, one
in October 2004 and one in Febru-
ary 2005. The final weighted aver-
age marketing year price for 2004


crop peanuts, which was
announced on Aug. 31, 2005, is
$378 per short ton, $23 higher than
the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland
cotton is at its maximum level due
to low market prices that have aver-
aged well below the 52-cents-per-
pound loan rate during the market-
ing year. Because of these low
prices, USDA is able to determine
the final counter-cyclical rate at this
time.
Producers who accepted the first
and second partial CCP payments
for 2004 crop peanuts received
$41.30 per ton and are due an addi-
tional $39.70 per ton. Producers
who accepted the first and second


partial CCP payments for 2004 crop
upland cotton received 9.61-cents-
per-pound and are due an addition-
al 4.12-cents-per-pound..
The counter-cyclical payment
rate is the.amount b\ which the
"target price" of each commodity
exceeds its effective pl ice. The
effective price equals the direct pay-
ment rate plus the higher of: (1) the
national average market price
received by producers during the
marketing year, or (2) the national
ak er age loan rate for the commodi-
ty. The counter-cyclical payment
equals the counter-cyclical pay-
ment rate multiplied by 85 percent
of the farm's base acreage multi-
plied by the farm's counter-cyclical

payment yield for each crop. Target
prices are mandated in the 2002
Farm Bill.
The final 2004 counter-cyclical
payment rate for barley is 15-cents-
per-bushel. Those payments were
made during July. Producers will
not receive 2004 crop counter-cycli-
cal payments for wheat, oats and
other oilseeds because their 2004
effective prices equal or exceed
their respective "target prices".

Fewer biting midges are


expected for this fall


VERO BEACH Tiny, blood-
sucking flies that plague Florida's
coastline should be less common
this fall, thanks to summer rains
that flooded areas where the
pests breed, says a University of
Florida expert.
Biting midges, also known as
no-see-ums, are a constant pres-
ence during warm weather, but
appear in greater numbers during
October and November, and
again in April and May, said
Jonathan Day, an entomologist
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. The fall,
population boom follows peak'
high tides that flood salt marshes
and hatch dormant eggs stock-
piled throughout the summer
months.
This year, summer rainfall left
standing water in many low-lying
coastal areas, making potential
egg-laying sites inaccessible, he
said. Biting midges lay eggs in
muddy soil but cannot deposit
them on top of standing water.
"Their loss is our gain, so to
speak," Day said. "Biting midges
aren't going to disappear alto-
gether this fall, but if you're on the
coast you'll probably get fewer
bites compared with years when
we had a dry summer."
Two coastal biting midge
species are affected by the situa-
tion Culicoides furens, which is
found along the coast throughout
the state, and Culicoides barbo-
sai, found in coastal marshes pri-
marily in South Florida, said Day,
who studies biting insects at UF's
Florida Medical Entomology Lab-
oratory in Vero Beach.
Populations of inland biting
midge species will probably be


reduced as well, he said. Though
less prominent than their coastal
cousins, inland biting midges are
found near lakes, swamps, low-
land marshes and livestock pas-
tures.
Florida is home to about 50
species of biting midges, but
only a handful are significant
human pests, said Roxanne Rut-
ledge, another entomologist at
the UF laboratory. Rutledge
recently wrote a profile on the
biting midges of Florida, which
can be found online at
http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/aqu
atic/biting_midges.htm.
Adult females feed on blood to
obtain nutrients they need to pro-
duce eggs, and their bites cause a
sharp, burning pain, she said.
Because the midges measure less
than one-eighth of an inch long,
they are seldom seen by their
human hosts.
"The bites can be very annoy-
ing, but in the United States there
are no human diseases caused by
the biting midges," Rutledge said.
"Some people do have a mild
allergic reaction and experience
welts and itching for a couple of
days.",
Despite the temporary popula-
tion decline this fall, people going
outdoors in biting midge habitat
should take basic precautions
against the pests, she said.
"Wear long-sleeved shirts and
long pants if possible, and use a
repellent containing DEET on
your exposed skin," Rutledge
said. "Try to avoid outdoor activity
at dawn and dusk, especially if the
air is still."
Biting midges are weak fliers,
so homeowners can blow the


pests away from patios and decks
with large electric fans, she said.
Screened-in pools and porches
may need to be protected with
fans as well, because biting
midges can pass through most
wire mesh.
Unfortunately, little can be
done to control the pests on a
large scale, Rutledge said. No
community in Florida, or any
other state, has a biting-midge
control program.
"The biggest problem is,
there's no option for destroying
the larvae in away that's econom-
ical, efficient and environmentally
sound," she said.
Because biting midges lay their
eggs in muddy soil, vast areas can
be used for breeding, Rutledge
said. Locating eggs or larvae
requires close examination of soil
samples, which takes time. Even
if larvae are located, there are no
safe, approved insecticides that
can penetrate the mud to reach
them.
"For now, the biting midges
have the upper hand, and we just
have to rely on low-tech solu-
tions," she said.
The lack of large-scale control
options can be frustrating to the
public, and to public-health offi-
cials, said Jonas Stewart, director of
the Volusia County mosquito con-
trol program in Daytona Beach.
"We get calls from citizens
asking for help with biting
midges, and the only thing we can
do is spray for the adults, which
only works temporarily," Stewart
said. "People sometimes assume
that controlling biting midges is as
easy as controlling mosquitoes
and, unfortunately, it's not."


The weed with two leaves


Rvice last week some office
visitors brought in samples from
an unknown plant for our Master
Gardeners to identify. Besides
having distinctive yellow berries,
it had a curious arrangement of
having two unequal sized leaves
that grew from each bud.
According to UF Extension
Weed Specialist Dr. Ken Lange-
land, Twin-leaved Solanum. is
one of the new "featured fiends"
that will be included in his new
second book of Florida's inva-
sive plants.
This plant is cropping up in
more and more in Florida Yards
all over the southern part of the
peninsula, and is worth remov-
ing from your landscape as soon
as it is noticed. If it is allowed to
drop its berries, expect to be
picking the seedlings from
around your landscape shrubs
and trees for years to come.
While it is not as invasive as
the infamous Brazilian Pepper
tree, it has the potential to invade
natural areas as well as become
a persistent landscape weed.
The UF/IFAS Task Force on Inva-
sive species cautions its use as
an ornamental because of its
ability to spread, and the Florida
Exotic Plant Pest Council has
added it to its Group II list -
those plants that have the ability
to spread into natural areas if
conditions are favorable.
Twin-leaved Solanum or Two-
leaved Solanum (Solanum
diphyllum) is a native of Mexico
and Central America. Another
name sometimes given to this
plant is Amatillo, which is the
name of places in El Salvador,
Guatemala and Honduras.
(There is also a town of Amatillo
in Texas, where this weed has
also escaped cultivation.)
Leaves of this plant are gener-


ally a deep green color and
smooth, and can measure one
to three inches long. The pairs of
leaves grow with one big and
one small leaf. The plant itself
forms an upright woody stem
that can grow up to six feet in
height, but they more typically
top out at three to four feet.
During warmer months it will'
produce clusters of small white
five-petaled flowers that give rise
to the round yellow berries. The
fruit can be one-half inch in
diameter, and are filled with
many black seed. They remind
me of small cherry tomatoes
with hardened skin. No doubt
that many others see this as well,
as they are very closely related to
tomatoes, peppers, and other
members of the nightshade fam-
ily.
According to Dr. Langeland,
the plants may freeze back in
winter, but will re-sprout from
their roots. Research shows that
75-85 percent of the seed will
sprout, and the seed can stay
alive even when buried an inch
in the soil for up to two years.
Birds and bats will also help
spread this plant by eating the
fruit and depositing them else-
where.
Last year, I was walking
through the Mexico pavilion at
EPCOT, in the Disney property,
and saw this upright woody
bush growing in the landscape
between the tropical Hibiscus
and Philodendrons. I also saw
one growing next to .a neigh-
bor's bougainvillea vine, and the
resulting fruit easily spread many
seedlings into my yard. Have you
seen them in your neighbor-
hood?
Records are unclear as to
when it came to our area, but it'
was grown as an ornamental


plant in the 1960's. At one time, it
was available for sale in Florida
nurseries. Because it is so easily
grown from seed, and escapes
into the landscape, there is no
commercial market for this plant
as an ornamental. In 2001, the
Florida Nursery Growers and
Landscapers Association recom-
mended that this species no
longer be propagated, sold or
used in Florida.
One office visitor wanted to
know if this plant was poison-
ous. I was not able to find any
information about poisonous
qualities occurring with twin-
leaf solanum, but since many of
this plant's relatives contain
highly toxic constituents, I'd not
recommend it as an edible plant.
The best way to keep this
invader from your Florida Yard is
to become familiar with what it
looks like, and pull the small
plants out before the berries are
formed. We don't have any spe-
cific recommendations for
chemicals that will selectively
remove Amatillo from your land-
scapes, but if herbicides are
desired, a carefully directed
application of a nonselective
weed killer like glyphosate will
discourage the seedlings.
Remember to read and follow all
label directions on any pesticide.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee Web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you need additional information

Beware of shooting walking sticks


Guess I'm lucky. A few years
ago I was training some Master
Gardeners and encountered a
Wheel-bug on a flowering shrub.
The pretty colors and unusual
shape were intriguing. I allowed it
to walk on my fingers and
showed the volunteers up close
what they looked like, and then
retuned it to the shrub. Later on, I
discovered that this predator
insect can pack a very painful
sting. I found that to be a close
call.
This past week I uncovered
another insect a walking stick
-hanging out in my Florida Yard.
I carefully picked them up (there
were two), and moved them off
the branch I was trimming. I've
now found out that this Florida
critter also has some hidden dan-
ger it can forcefully shoot a
caustic juice at attacking crea-
tures that can result in very
painful eye stings. So maybe it's
time to review what we know
about walking sticks another
interesting creature in our Florida
Yard.
Walking sticks are close rela-
tives to grasshoppers, crickets,
palmetto bugs and preying man-
tids. In Florida, the local kind of
walking stick is known as the
two-striped walking stick, Aniso-
morpha buprestoides. This fea-
tured insect has been reported
throughout Florida and around
the Gulf Coastal Plain west to


Texas. Other names applied to
these stick insects in general
include devil's riding horse,
prairie alligator, stick bug, witch's
horse, devil's darning needle,
scorpion, and the musk mare.
Walking sticks are among the
longest insects in the world -
one exotic species has been
measured at 22 inches! However,
the local two-striped females
average only two inches in length,
while the males are smaller and
more slender, averaging one'inch.
Generally these insects are dark
brown with two long yellowish
stripes running down the length
of their back. However, there is a
strikingly distinct black and white
color form that is found only in
the area of the Ocala National For-
est. Check the color quickly if you
are collecting them, as they dis-
color upon death.
A second species of walking
sticks occur in the southeastern
U.S., but has not been seen in
Florida. It is smaller in size and
lighter in color, and lacks the
stripes. Other species of walking
sticks occur in the U.S. and across
the globe. Some are even used as
pets!
Some years the number of
these insects is greater than in
others. Duval County Horticulture
Agent Terry DelValle reported that
in the fall of 2003, the populations
of this insect were higher than
normal in Jacksonville. An ento-


mologist also reported a large
local population of these insects
north of Ocala just a few hours
before Hurricane Charley
stormed through last summer.
Typically, they do not eat so
many leaves with their chewing
mouthparts that they need to be
controlled pesticide use against
these insects is not suggested.
These insects feed on leaves of
trees and shrubs with some of
their favorites listed as crape myr-
tles, roses, oaks, rosemary, lyonia
and Ligustrum shrubs.
Since these insects show grad-
ual or incomplete metamorpho-
sis, they slowly get larger through
the growing season, and are most
likely to be seen in the late sum-
mer and fall. Often the larger
female can be seen with a smaller
one attached (male). The male
will mate and hold on to the
female for long periods of time -
it is thought that this is a way for
the male to be certain that other
males will not mate with that
female. Eggs are usually laid in
the fall on the ground in a pit and
covered with sand.
Our local walking stick has a
couple of defensive mechanisms
that Floridians should know
about. Their first line of defense is
to look like a dead stick, and so,
are often overlooked. In some
cases they vibrate, as if the wind
was blowing.
But, if they are physically dis-


turbed, they secrete a foul
smelling milky fluid from two
pores of the thorax. They also
have the ability to force a stream
from their body as far as a foot in
distance. Researchers have found
that this secretion contains sub-
stances that can produce a pow-
erful burning sensation if it gets
into the eyes.
For those that have had such
an encounter, the recommended
treatment is to wash the eye with
large amounts of water and take
over-the-counter analgesics for
pain. For severe symptoms, a trip
to the eye doctor may be neces-
sary. An individual in Texas was
reported to have vision problems
for up to five days. A report from
Brevard County last month says
that another person was sprayed
in the eyes by this insect.
An urban legend has, been cir-
culating that an exotic walking
stick from Belize (or sometimes
Brazil) that was found in Texas
and is spreading east. According
to UF Entomologist Tom Fasulo,
while there are plenty of Central
and South American walking
sticks, they are not in Texas at
least not yet. This story is a hoax,
however, it is based upon some
truth. While there is no known
invasion of alien poison-spitting
walking sticks, our local native
two-striped walking stick can
spray a secretion that can cause
pain and impair vision.


Manatee is rescued


from Dry Tortugas


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
biologists are calling their latest
manatee rescue an unusual one.
With the help of National Park
Service rangers, employees of
Sunny Days Catamaran and
some other good Samaritans,
the FWC captured an emaciated
manatee this weekend from a
Fort Jefferson moat in the Dry
Tortugas, which is approximate-
ly 70 miles west of Key West.
"We were extremely sur-
prised to find a manatee that far
away from the Florida coast,"
said FWC biologist Christy
Hudak, who helped coordinate
the rescue. "Manatees are
coastal animals that need
access to freshwater for hydra-
tion. The Dry Tortugas doesn't
have a freshwater source,
which is why we believe this
manatee was so emaciated."
In fact, Hudak said, this is only
the second manatee rescued
that far away from the coast
since the Manatee Rescue Pro-
gram began during the mid-80s.
The manatee, nicknamed
"Jefferson", is being fed through
a tube at the Miami Seaquarium.
While "Jefferson" is not eating
on its own, the manatee is inter-
acting with others, which staff


"We were extremely
surprised to find a
manatee that far
away from the Flori-
da coast."
Christy Hudak,
FWC biologist


said was a good sign. The mana-
tee will remain at the Seaquari-
um until it is fully recovered, at
which point the FWC will assist
with releasing "Jefferson" back
into the wild.
Fort Jefferson park rangers
reported the misguided manatee
to the FWC in early September,
but storm activity postponed
recovery attempts. On Saturday,
Sunny Days Catamaran offered
the FWC use of an 86-foot cata-
maran to assist in transporting
equipment and, ultimately, the
manatee. Hudak said it took
about four hours to find, capture
and .load the manatee onto the
boat. They kept the animal cool
and safe from sunburn by cover-
ing it with damp towels for the
2.5-hour boat ride to Key West,
where they transferred him to a
truck and moved him to Miami.


UN sea turtle recommendation under fire; experts say, not enough


FOREST KNOLLS, CA The
UN General Assembly will begin
considering a recommendation
to prevent the further decline of
endangered sea turtles. The rec-
ommendation, which some envi-
ronmentalists say will not do
enough to prevent the imminent
extinction of the leatherback sea
turtle in the Pacific, will be includ-
ed in resolution up for a General
Assembly vote Nov. 28. Environ-
mentalists are instead calling on
the UN to strengthen the recom-
mendation by implementing
urgently needed conservation
measures.
Recommended by a meeting
of the UN Convention on the Law
of the Sea this past June, the rec-
ommendation merely ,calls for
implementing a voluntary set of


guidelines by the UN Food and
Agriculture Organization.
"Although the FAO Guidelines
have some good parts to it, unfor-
tunately it is voluntary and cannot
be enforced. Every single FAO
plan has failed miserably. That is
why we need a moratorium until
sufficient measures can. be put
into place," Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator with the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project.
To date, 1,007 scientists from
97 nations, 231 non-governmen-
tal organizations from 62 nations
and thousands of other citizens
from many countries that have
called on the United Nations urg-
ing it to implement a moratorium
on high seas pelagic long-line
fishing in the Pacific. The letter


has been signed by eminent sci-
entists including biologist Dr. E. 0.
Wilson, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
and Dr. Sylvia Earle..
"While we praise the UN for
finally calling for action to reduce
the threats to sea turtles from
deadly long-line fishing, we need
more than talk. We need scientifi-
cally proven measures that can
save the leatherback from extinc-
tion," Ovetz added.
The range of measures advo-
cated by environmentalists and
some countries include time and
area closures in key nesting and
migratory areas, reduction in
overcapacity of fishing effort, hard
caps on the by-catch of threat-
ened and endangered species,
best practices in by-catch mitiga-
tion, training for fishers, 100 per-


cent observer coverage, satellite
tracking of vessels and public
reporting of catch and by-catch
data. A recent study by NOAA
Fisheries has identified two spe-
cific routes used by sea turtles to
migrate across the Pacific.
Recent reports in the scientific
journals Nature and in the journal
Ecology have warned that billfish
and shark populations have
declined by about 90 percent in
the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and,
the Pacific since the 1950s.
Billfish and sharks as well as
sea turtles, seabirds, marine
mammals and even tuna and
swordfish are caught and killed by
long-lines as so called by-catch. A
recent study by the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project found that
4.4-million of these species are


caught and killed in the Pacific
each year.
"Some countries were calling
for closed areas on the high seas
to protect the many species being
wiped out by long-lines but the
Japanese delegation blocked
everyone of them from being
included in the recommenda-
tion," Ovetz recounted. "Howev-
er, the General Assembly has the
opportunity to put real teeth back
into the recommendation by
implementing recommended
conservation measures."
The female nesting population
of the 100-million-year-old Pacific
leatherback sea turtle has col-
lapsed by 95 percent since 1980.
The leatherback is listed as criti-
cally endangered by the World
Conservation Union and scien-


tists warn that it could become
extinct in the next 5-30 years
unless immediate action to
remove threats to its survival,
such as long-line fishing. The
Pacific loggerhead sea turtle and
the black-footed albatross are
also caught primarily by long-
lines and considered on the
precipice of extinction. Long-line
fishing is the main threat to alba-
tross seabirds 19 of the 21 of
the species of which are consid-
ered threatened or endangered.
The General Assembly has
also been asked by two countries
to put the problem of the by-catch
of marine species by industrial
fishing on the agenda of the next
meeting of the UN Convention on
the Law of the Sea, which will
take place in June 2006.
