Governor inspects damage


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Governor Jeb
Bush came to South Florida on
Monday, Oct. 31 for the second
time since Hurricane Wilma
passed through the region. This
time the governor made a visit to
the city of Clewiston to visit federal
assistance registration centers and
meet with city officials with hopes
of outlining a plan for streamlining
recovery efforts in the wake of last
week's devastating hurricane.


Governor Bush met with city
and county employees and elected
officials at the Clewiston Emer-
gency Operations Center, to brief
city officials and review what prob-
lems the city is facing in the recov-
ery efforts of Hurricane Wilma.
Governor Bush arrived at the
EOC after first visiting the
FEMA/Florida Disaster Recovery
Center, located at the parking lot of
the Clewiston Wal-Mart Super-
store. Residents have been able to
register for federal disaster recov-


ery assistance at Wal-Mart since
Hurricane Wilma blasted through
the city early Monday morning.
Governor Bush conversed with
residents who were either waiting
in the FEMA line or had come out
to greet the Florida governor.
"I'm glad to see that the com-
munity has begun to heal itself so
soon after the storm," said Gover-
nor Bush.
Representative Foley presented
photographs of some of the storm
damage suffered by Clewiston res-

Florida Governor Jeb Bush arrived in Clewiston Monday to meet with city and county
officials at the Clewiston!Hendry County Emergency Operations Center.


The HCSO set up a distribution center at the "Big V" convenience store on Hooker's
Point Rd., where deputies and volunteers were helping distribute food, water, baby sup-
plies and food, and countless other supplies. "We're going to keep giving out help and
supplies as long as there are supplies to give," said Sheriff Lee.r

President George W Bush in
Miami during their first visit to
South Florida last week.
U.S. House Representative
Mark Foley, Florida House Speaker
Allan Bense, and Florida House
Representative Denise Grimsley
accompanied the governor Mon-
day.
Clewiston Mayor Mali Cham-
ness welcomed the governor to
the EOC and expressed apprecia-
tion for the adequate response by


the State Urban Search and Res-
cue response team, which kicked
into action in Clewiston within
minutes of the storm's passing.
Mayor Chamness also thanked
the governor for the immediate
verbal response by Governor
Bush, who spoke to Mayor Cham-
ness by phone before the major
winds of the storm had fully
silenced.

Citizens are




cleaning up


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The howl-
ing roar of the winds of Hurri-
cane Wilma are long gone,
having subsided after tearing
people's homes apart for
more than eight hours. How-
ever, since the afternoon of
Oct. 24, the sound of the
howling winds has been
replaced by the buzz of thou-
sands of voices in urgent need
of assistance.
The state of Florida Urban
Search and Rescue response
team initially declared 94
homes to be seriously dam-
aged: within Cleyviston city
limits. However, city officials
-have estimat-ed that, almost
five to six times as many
homes have been badly dam-
aged enough to be declared
uninhabitable.


The destruction of hun-
dreds of homes has led to a
countless array of relief initia-
tives for the area, including an
urgent need of temporary
housing and food service to
the area. The problem was
compounded by the wide-
spread power outages, which
forced some residents to
throw out unimaginable
amounts of food unable to be
preserved.
In response to the need for
food, agencies and organiza-
tions have come from other
parts of the country, as well as
from within the city of Clewis-
ton, to come to the aid of the
public within days of the pass-
ing of Hurricane Wilma.
As early as Tuesday, Oct.
25, members of the Alabama

Patients taken



from hospital


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Hendry
Regional Medical Center
received considerable dam-
age to its facilities in Clewis-
ton due to Hurricane Wilma.
'High winds and driving rain
caused disruptive amounts of
water to find ways into the
facility, and the. changing
water pressures within
plumbing and other related
factors caused an emergency
evacuation of the patients
housed in the hospital.
The destructive winds of
Hurricane Wilma blew large
ventilation structures off the


roof of HRMC, which allowed
dangerous amounts of water
to seep into the building while
the storm continued to pour
rain onto the Clewiston area.
Water intrusion was also
observed at flooded parts of
the hospital, seeping through
doors and windows.
The deteriorating condi-
tions became too unsafe for
patients, who were evacuated
from the hospital when the
maximum sustained wind lev-
els died down Monday.
Thirteen patients were
housed at HRMC during the

Senators push for relief


By Bill Fabian
BELLE GLADE United
States Senators Bill Nelson and
Mel Martinez promised to push
for a legislative action that would
allow victims of Hurricane
Wilma to qualify for aid from the
Disaster Relief Bill, which was
originally passed to provide aid
and assistance to victims of Hurri-
cane Katrina.
The United States Senate
members from Florida flew into
the Belle Glade airport on a Unit-
ed States Army Blackhawk heli-
copter to tour the hurricane-rav-
aged areas of South Florida on
Monday, Oct. 31, the same day
that Governor Jeb Bush was trav-
eling through the area to hear
from municipal government offi-
cials and outline plans for hurri-
cane recovery efforts.
City officials from Pahokee,
Belle Glade, South Bay and
Clewiston awaited the arrival of
Nelson and Martinez, who hoped
to complete a tour of Pahokee,


Belle Glade, and South Bay on
Monday.
Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser
expressed appreciation for the
senators' visit and the progress of
recovery efforts in the area.
"It's encouraging to see the
progress going on around here.
One day you look down a long
road and see a long row of utility
poles all leaning over,, and then
the next day you look down the
same road and all the poles have
been straightened and repaired,"
said Mayor Sasser.
"That's when you know
things are getting done," he said.
The United States Sugar Cor-
poration, which has suffered
heavy damage to both crop
assets and refinery facilities, has
been one of the primary voices
asking for inclusion of Hurricane
Wilma victims to the Disaster
Relief Bill.
USSC Vice President Robert
Coker traveled to Washington to
lobby for the legislative action,
and also came out to greet Nel-


son and Martinez in Belle Glade.
,Speaking to Senator. Martinez,
Coker described the state of the
sugar industry after the storm.
According to the public affairs
executive, most of the orange
groves owned by USSC and
Southern Gardens Citrus have
been heavily damaged most
of the oranges were blown off
the trees. "We are out salvaging
what we can from those groves,
and we still hope to get some-
thing out of this year's orange
crop," he said.
Seedlings of sugar cane were
wiped out during the storm, and
must be restored in order to guar-
antee a harvest for 2006.
"We're really rushing to
replant for next year, because
what we had planted before the
storm will not grow after the
amount of water deposited by
the storm," Coker said.
Still, there is very-little hope
that this year's crop will reach its

From the editor: May we all remember


By Mark Young
It's a common saying that dis-
asters bring out the best in peo-
ple and there is always someone
who chimes in with, "and the
worse".
Unfortu-
nately that is
true as oppor-
tunists and
thieves show
the ugly side
of humanity
during times
of crisis. But I
have always Mark
believed that Young
the majority of
people are good despite what I
have seen through my many
travels across this great country
of ours and beyond.
Unfortunately, the good in
people will slowly take a back
seat as everyday life once again
will trod our lives forward and
return us to our everyday exis-
tence of working, paying bills,
and worrying about the societal
pressures put on our children.
, It's only during times of crisis
that the good nature of human
beings gets a chance to shine.
There is an opportunity for the


average person to see their fel-
low man in need, and we react
without question. But as the cri-
sis fades and everyday life
returns, the people intent on liv-
ing their lives in a state of selfish
greed, without regards to others,
assumes the spotlight once
again, because it is these people
whose characters and personali-
ties are consistent.
That is why I do and
always will believe that most
humans are good. It is a pity that
it takes such a large-scale crisis
to bring to the forefront the true
character of the average person.
When the Twin Towers fell on
that fateful September morning,
the American spirit rose from
the ashes and shined its power-
ful light upon the nation caus-
ing strangers to smile at one
another, strangers to care for
one another, strangers consoling
one another, and strangers cast-
ing their individual realities aside
for the good of all man.
And even though I'm an opti-
mist when it comes to human
nature, I am also a realist when.
it comes to that same human
character. Pre 9-11, this country
was plagued with political cor-


rectness to the point of absurdi-
ty. I counted the days until I saw
the first signs of its return and
the negativity of some humans
begin to cloud the gallantry of
others. It took 17 days and it was
a fast trip downhill from there.
Then Florida found its way in
the path of four serious storms
and the nation's eyes turned this
way. And only a few months
ago, Hurricane Katrina brought
the powerful city of New
Orleans to its knees. We reached
out to our fellow human beings.
We chipped in our hard earned
money and cleaned out our
pantries and closets for all those
along the Gulf Coast.
And now we sit in the middle
of the devastation of Hurricane
Wilma. The nation's eyes are
upon us, but the reality of the sit-
uation is that very soon those
eyes will look away. And slowly,
but surely, our eyes will close,
our extended hands will retract
and everyday life will resume.
But knowing that the spirit of
America albeit sometimes
dormant is there, is a power-
ful comfort. My faith in humans
will' not waver and I will forever
hope that one day it will not take
a large-scale tragedy for

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my
name is Henry, and I wanted to ask
a post Wilma question. Do dogs
suffer from post traumatic stress
disorder? My dog Phil has been a
nervous mess all this week. We did
ride out he storm at home.
Although if was a loud and frighten-
ing time, we did come out okay. Do
you think Phil is still upset from all
the tensions? Thanks Doc. Henry
and Phil in Moore Haven.
A: Dear Henry and Phil, the
answer is yes! Dogs do stress out
from a traumatic event such as a
hurricane. Dogs pick up on our
emotions, and can feel insecure if
they are troubled and do not under-
stand what is going on. Make sure
to pay particular attention to Phil,
and comfort him. If needed some-
times a sedative for a few days can
be helpful. Also, even antidepres-
sants can be indicated. Make sure
to consult with your veterinarian to
see what may help Phil. Take care,
Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Since the
hurricane, we have a boil water
order in effect in our area. Does this
mean I have to do the same for my
cat? Barbara in Pahokee.
A: Hello Barbara, that is a very
important question. Yes you do! If
the water is not safe for our con-


Doc Savvy
sumption, it is the same for our
pets. It would be best to serve your
kitty bottled water. In fact, it is
much better to give our pets bottled
or filtered water all the time. Some
people will think that is an added
expense, but it's really the best
thing to do to prevent any contami-
nation. That's what I do for Sam
and Luigi, as well as all my board-
ers and hospital patients at my
practice! Hope that helps Barbara.
Best wishes, Doc Savvy.

Lake level


continues to rise


With Lake Okeechobees
water level at 15.6 going into
Hurricane Wilma, it is pre-
dictable that the lake should rise.
Heavy rains fell throughout
South Florida. Until yesterday,
the St Lucie River was having all
it could do to handle local runoff.
On Oct. 27, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers (USACE)
began releasing lake water into
the St Lucie River.
The releases are less than a
Level 3 pulse release, but desper-
ately needed with the lake's
water level at 16.5 and predicted
to rise as runoff from the Kissim-
mee River basin to the north,
where Wilma's rainfall was also
heavy, gathers and flows south
into the lake. The current water
level is at the lower end of the
range at which conditional
releases are called for under the
Lake Okeechobee operating
schedule, Water Supply and
Environment (WSE).
The lock at Moore Haven,
clogged with debris from Hurri-
cane Wilma, is now cleared and
USACE has begun Level 3 releas-
es into the Caloosahatchee River.
According to USACE engi-
neers, water levels to the south


are also above normal and the
southern outlets from the lake
are handling as mufih water as
possible.
"The outlets to the south have
about one third the capacity of
the Caloosahatcheeand St. Lucie
River outlets,". said Andrew
Geller, P.E., Water Management
Engineer for USACE.
"This has definitely been a
historic year for tropical storm
activity," said Mr. Geller.
At their October governing
board meeting South Florida
Water Management District
approved a resolution requesting
a deviation from the WSE to
allow releases of water from Lake
Okeechobee not considered in
the current schedule. The request
also contains a request for
pumps to supply water to the
coast in times of drought, accord-
ing to GarrettWallace of SFWMD:
The USACE has committed to
a revision of the WSE by Decem-
ber of 2006 to prevent the step-
wise in water levels in the
lake, which resulted in pro-
longed deep water conditions
and caused a loss of nearly 40
percent of the underwater plant
community in 2002-2003.

Letters to the Editor


Mission accomplished
Dear editor:
During the week of Oct. 23,
many in southwest Florida law
enforcement officers, firefighters,
emergency management work-
ers, utility crews and others -
worked selflessly and tirelessly
through Hurricane Wilma and its
aftermath. They made the work
easier for the staff at Hope Hos-
pice, whose mission was to pro-
vide exceptional care and support
to all people touched by end-of-
life issues no matter what
adverse circumstances might be
surrounding them.
As Wilma approached, the
Hope Hospice team helped evac-
uate patients who could not
remain in their homes. They were
brought to our three hospice
houses and were cared for
around the clock in a tranquil
environment, warmly sheltered
from nature's violence outside.
Meanwhile, others on the hospice
team had to make sure that
patients throughout Lee, Glades
and Hendry Counties would have
the medications and oxygen they
might need in the uncertain days
ahead.
It is difficult to imagine work-
ing under such conditions. Yet,
even in such tragic moments, life
goes on. Babies are born, people
must be rescued or protected,
and people pass away. Those in
life's final stages need someone to
care for them. For my hospice
heroes and all of our local emer-
gency workers, mission accom-
plished.
Thank you for a job well done.
Samira K Beckwith, President
and CEO
Hope of Southwest Florida

Wilma was an ordeal
Dear editor:
What an ordeal. I feel very
lucky! It will take forever it seems
to recover from this however. I
have spent the last few days when
I was not at work helping clients,


standing in lines to get ice and
apply for FEMA blue roofs and
disaster assistance and sitting on
hold on the phone trying to file
insurance claims on the house
and car.
The electricity came on and
Dave and I relished in taking a hot
shower for the first time yester-
day! I went shopping today and
was able to put perishables in the
refrigerator again! We still can't
live in the back of the house but
things are getting better. I have
been doing laundry nonstop
since the power came on.
The Eckerd Camp E Tu Makee
sustained serious damage and the
kids are still not able to return.
The Indian reservation where I
now work was also hard hit and is
without power indefinitely.
The reservation and other
parts of the county near us will
likely be without power for sever-
al more weeks. Earlier I had
thought to tell you about how
wonderful the Southern Baptist
Association from Alabam'a has
been in handing out food, and
they have been, however when
Budweiser donated canned water
with their logo on it, they refused
to pass it out! So, what I say now
is buy Budweiser products and
avoid the Alabama Baptists.
Schools are opening for half
days next Wednesday, .not sure
how long before they are back to
normal. One elementary school
and the high school were serious-
ly damaged.
If nothing else, this storm has
helped us remember what is truly
important. Our family is all safe.
We have great family members
like my Mom who took a week off
after driving up here to pick up
the kids and take them back with
her, so that the kids could have
electric and live in a safe house
and we could concentrate on
cleaning up the house doing
some repairs, installing a tempo-
rary roof, through no help from
FEMA, and throwing away ruined
furniture and things. Other family


have called and sent messages
offering help as well. My neigh-
bors helped neighbors by lending
a helping hand, sharing food,
sharing tools like latter's and
chainsaws. My Church checked
on its members and those who
suffered major damage and did
not have the means to help them-
selves, the members put hours of
volunteer work in their homes
helping out. Friends called and
stopped by to check on us,- and
we did the same for them. Clewis-
ton is truly a blessed town, espe-
cially as we see the big cities in
the news and the problems they
are having as people fend for
themselves at the expense of oth-
ers.
The car insurance agent has
called us, but we have yet to hear
from the house insurance. We
sure would hear from them if our
premium was late though. And
they told us we can't make repairs
till the guy comes out!
God Bless
Trish Adams, LCSW

Commendations
for all
Dear Editor:
I would like to personally com-
mend the efforts of our local gov-
ernment officials and our public
works operations for their excel-
lent response in the aftermath of
Hurricane Wilma.
With the leadership of Mayor
Mali Chamness, Utilities Director
Kevin McCarthy, Public Works
Director Sean Scheffler, County
Commissioners Janet Taylor and
Bo Pelham along with the entire
city staff, the Hendry County
Emergency Operations Center
(EOC) was well prepared for the
hurricane and got to work imme-
diately after it passed to secure,
serve and protect our community.
With the assistance of Florida
Power & Light and numerous
Florida municipal power associa-
tion members, power and water
were quickly restored to most of


the residential areas of town, pro-
viding the basics of electricity and
clean hot water to its citizens.
Shortly thereafter, electricity was
restored to our offices and sugar
operations so that we could get
back up and running, providing
employment for our 1,800 work-
ers. Our major highways and
roads were quickly cleared of
power lines and debris so that
necessary travel could resume.
Chief Gutshall and Sheriff Ron-
nie Lee and their officers kept
crime and looting to a minimum
in our area. After the much publi-
cized crime in New Orleans, it
was great to see how well our
community was prepared to han-
dle a crisis.
In addition to the exceptional
local response, Mayor Chamness
and our local elected officials
quickly communicated Clewis-
ton's needs to state and federal
agencies. Water, ice and basic
food supplies were located and
delivered to those in need..
As many of you know, U.S.
Sugar suffered significant damage
to our sugarcane and citrus crops,
and we will be hurting economi-
cally for several years. Fortunately,
through the hard work of our peo-
ple, our harvesting and process-
ing efforts have resumed, the
Clewiston Refinery and the
Bryant and Clewiston raw mills
are all fully operational and we
are looking forward to slowly but
surely getting back on track.
Our community will have to
continue to pull together in work-
ing to get our homes, lives and
businesses back in order, but it is
good to know that we have pro-
fessional and highly competent
people to lead the way. While this
was a tough situation, we recov-
ered far more quickly and thor-
oughly than many others in the
last two years. To all our public
leadership: Thank you.
Sincerely,
Robert H. Buker, Jr.
President and CEO, U.S. Sugar


Noah and the pilgrims and now Wilma


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My thoughts this past week ran
to Noah. You recall his place in
history as the person who built
the ark and took his family along
with two of every species for a 40-
day non-pleasure cruise (Genesis
6:6ff) The earth flooded; it has
been compared by some to be
the baptism of the earth.
Through the trial by water,
Noah held on and then sent out
doves; the second dove bringing
back an olive leaf to show Noah
that the water had receded. When
Noah left the ark, he did some-
thing that we should do today
when the waters recede he
built an altar (Genesis 8:20). Per-
haps it is not necessary to build an
altar, but to find one and thank
God for being with us during the
storm.
Our Pilgrim ancestors made a
rough crossing across the Atlantic
Ocean on boats that none of us
would use to cross Lake Okee-
chobee these days. They did it
because they believed and when


they arrived in a new land, they
too built an altar. They gave
thanks to God for their safe deliv-
erance and travel, and shared
with the people they found
around them (you've heard of
"Thanksgiving" and maybe
you've wondered to whom they
gave thanks ... well!) God was
with them and they made it;
instead of grumbling about the
length of the trip or the rough
waters or the lack of proper facili-
ties, or the poor diet, or the rough
land when they arrived, they saw
the big picture and thanked God.
I was working on my own
family genealogy and read of my
distant relatives who arrived here
on a sailing ship. She had written
a letter home and told about the
crossing, saying it was a good
crossing "only seven people
died." She also told about the ship
captain not landing at the docks
because there were many who
would become indentured ser-
vants to pay off their passage and
he was afraid they would run
away. She gave thanks for her safe
arrival too. Now, as I listened to
the call-in shows while we were


without electricity and heard peo-
ple complain or want special
favors, I couldn't help but wonder
if they got the big picture they
had been spared during one of
the worst storms known to the
area and yet worried about if they
might be the last person to get
electricity.
I suspect that person had no
altar. They missed something and
that's too bad. We will rebuild, we
will all have our power back we
will all be fed, very few have died
across the nation, we certainly
have so much to be thankful for.
This past Sunday, we gave
thanks to God at our church for
the presence he showed and the
blessings we received when it
could have been ever so much
worse. We also resolved to help
those who suffered more than we
did and show our thanksgiving in
our acts and deeds as we, as our
words and prayers.
I am grateful to God personally
for all that could have happened
and didn't happen and so are oth-
ers who the world would judge as
less fortunate than I was. Surpris-
ingly, many of them are thankful


to God too and that's what it is all
about. In spite of the problems, in
spite of the disasters, in spite of
the ways things turn out, we
came through.
When I lived and ministered in
the North, people would ask me
"How could you stand those hur-
ricanes" and when I returned /
south, people would ask me,
"How could you stand those win-
ters?" The answer was that God
had sent me somewhere and it
went with the territory; but God
wouldn't send any of us any-
where without being there too,
and that's how I "stood" it. Like
God's family ordeals have a way
of binding us closer together -
the richest periods in church his-
tory were the periods when the
persecutions were the worst. The
adversity that some complain
about drives the faithful into a
sense of fellowship and oneness
tat heals and restores. We made
it, it came with a cost, but we can
be richer for it by giving thanks to
God for seeing us through. Like
Noah or the Pilgrims, we can
build an altar, or find one.


Anchor deep and pray now and again


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Hurricane David approached
Florida in 1979. A college friend
had a boat that he was worried
about, so a number of us descend-
ed south from Gainesville to help
him secure his boat for the com-
ing storm.
Being a former Boy Scout, I
was proud of the job we did in
tying down that boat. We lashed it
tightly to the dock, trees, and even
to itself. It wasn't going anywhere.
We were patting ourselves on the
back when a sea captain informed
us that the best way to secure a
boat safely during a hurricane was
to anchor it away from the trees
and things which would "get
eaten up in the 'cane". It was bet-
ter to anchor, it deep with four
ropes going out in different direc-
tions and pray. It was good advice
then and was good advice when
Wilma visited our community. We
are to anchor deep and then we
are to pray. We are to do what we
can do and then turn to our Lord.
Like many others, the ferocity
of Wilma surprised me. Having
grown up in Florida, hurricanes
are not new to me. I wasn't really
worried. We were supposed to be
on the "less severe" side. I pre-
pared. I stored up ice and water in
case they were needed. I made
sure that my generator was work-
ing. I purchased chocolate for my
wife. I boarded up the windows. I
was ready or so I thought.
I ran a little short on large
boards, so on the last window I
pieced together several smaller
boards. There was a little space
between them. No problem it
was behind one of the porch
columns and a bush.


Wilma struck. My sugarcane
bit the dust. The hibiscus bush
was stripped of leaves. But we
were managing okay. Power was
out, but I would start the genera-
tor when the winds died down.
Then the wind shifted, and
started coming in from the north. I
was watching the shift and was
amazed at what I saw. It was com-
ing right at me. Then I noticed that
one of the columns supporting
our porch toppled. The window
started flexing a little bit. The next
thing I knew, the window next to
me shattered. The curtain started
billowing and the rain started to
come in. My first reaction was to
put something over it, but my wife
would have none of that. I sent
them to our safe room, and I went
to the end of the house to retrieve
the phone that worked without
electricity. I was very wary of
standing in front of the window
while retrieving the phone. Soon,
my wife, myself, our dog and two
cats were in the safe room. And
we started to "anchor deep" in
prayer.
All four columns of our porch
were blown down, a window was
broken, we lost some shingles
and soffit, but we were safe. Praise
be to God!
Upon reflection, I realized that
my hurricane experience is much
like my spiritual experience. I can
prepare. I can board up to protect
against hurricane forces, but all it
takes is one little opening one
little place where I didn't cover up
as much as I should have, and the
enemy has an opening to invade
my home. Let me tell you that it
was very un-nerving to have the
storm on the inside of my house.
We can have most of our per-
sonal home protected, but all the


enemy needs is that one little
opening to invade. Fortunately,
when the enemy invades, when
the storm breaks in, we have an
anchor we can tie into. When we


do what we can and anchor deep
in prayer, and when we hold onto
that anchor line to the Lord with
all of our heart, we can weather
any storm!

it or Ticket campaign brings atten-
tion to the needless deaths that
occur on our roadways each year
during the Thanksgiving Holiday
because motorist fail to use their
safety belts. Glades County Sheriff's
Office joined law enforcement
across the state in an effort to save
lives this holiday season by remind-
ing everyone to buckle up. This
traffic initiative will run from Nov.

giving holiday travel period.
Traditionally, the Thanksgiving
holiday period is on of the heaviest
traveled times across the U.S. The
result is a significant increase in traf-


fic crashes. Last year in Florida
alone, during the same time period
as this years campaign, 77 people
died in motor vehicle related crash-
es over half of those fatalities were
not using their safety belts.
Thanksgiving is a joyous holi-
day, but it is also one of the dead-
liest on our roadways, says Sheriff
Stuart Whiddon, Glades County
Sheriff and former Florida Highway
Patrol Officer. "Too many people
are being killed in traffic crashes
because they just didn't take a few
seconds to put on their safety belt.
Children and young adults learn
best by example, and we all need
to make sure they see the right


example.
During the most recent Click it
or Ticket Florida mobilization, held
earlier this year over the Memorial
Day Holiday period, state and local
law enforcement agencies issued
almost 37,000 safety belt citations.
Although law enforcement agen-
cies across the state participate n
the Click it or' Ticket Florida mobi-
lizations because the inattentive
heightens safety belt use aware-
ness surrounding times of the year
with high traffic related death rates,
these agencies enforce the safety
belt law every da, because they
know it is a matter of life or death.
* "The Click it or Ticket Florida


enforcement and education cam-
paign sends a clear message that
safety belts and child safety seas
when used properly saves lives,"
says Sheriff Whiddon of Glades
County Sheriff's Office. "We know
this is true because unfortunately
we must respond to fatal crashes.
This is why we enforce the law and
issue citations to unbuckled
motorist."
Glades County Sheriff's Office
and law enforcement agencies
across the state, with support from
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion, are joining together to remind
everyone this holiday season to
click it or you will receive a ticket.

In the early hours of Monday,
Oct. 24, law enforcement from
across the state were positioned
and ready to help in the recovery of
the destruction that would be left
from. Hurricane Wilma.
Southwest Florida .took a direct
hit from the Category 3 hurricane
and law enforcement agencies in
the impacted areas needed help.
Way before the storm hit the Flori-
da Department. of Law Enforce-
ment began to coordinate the
influx of state and local law


enforcement that would be
responding to the region. A Multi-
Agency coordination command
post was established at the Fort
Myers Regional Operations Center.
Four hundred and twenty-one
members of law enforcement
agencies have responded and lent
assistance to local agencies in the
impacted counties of Collier,
Glades, Hendry, Lee, and Okee-
chobee. The main goals of the law
enforcement duties is to assist local
law enforcement with search and


rescue, security, looting and curfew
violations, and traffic control. To
date, a total of 191 hurricane relat-
ed arrests have been made in the
region.
With power being restored to
most of the region the statewide
response will start to decrease as
the communities began to get back
to some sense of normalcy. FDLE
would like to thank all of the law
enforcement agencies listed below
for their tireless efforts assisting
local law enforcement in protect-


ing the citizens and visitors of
Southwest Florida:

Disaster unemployment assistance


Thursday, November 3, 2005


For more news visit www.newszap.com


TALLAHASSEE Susan
Pareigis, director of Florida's
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion, announced that individuals
who have lost jobs or businesses
as a result of Hurricane Wilma
may be entitled to Disaster
Unemployment Assistance ben-
efits.
On Oct. 24, President George
W. Bush, in response to a
request from Governor Jeb
Bush, declared a major disaster
for Broward, Collier, Glades,
Hendry, Lee, Martin, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Palm Beach, and
St. Lucie Counties, clearing the
way for use of federal funds to
provide assistance to individuals
affected by the disaster.
Although many workers will
be covered by the state's regular
unemployment compensation
program, those not covered may
apply for Disaster Unemploy-
ment Assistance (DUA). This is a
federally funded program,
which assists individuals who
become unemployed as a direct
result of a declared disaster and
who do not qualify for regular
unemployment benefits. The
program also covers self-
employed individuals, owners of
farms and ranches, farm and
ranch workers, as well as fishers
and others who are not normally
covered by state unemployment
compensation.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation administers the DUA
program in Florida in partner-
ship with the U.S. Department of
Labor and state and regional
workforce boards. Funding for
the program is provided by the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency.
Applicants must file for disas-
ter benefits within 30 days of the
date of public notification.
Therefore, DUA applications
must be filed no later than Nov.
28. To be eligible for either the
regular state unemployment
compensation program or DUA,
the applicant must be a legal res-


ident. To be eligible for DUA
benefits, an individual must
have exhausted all entitlement
to any regular state unemploy-
ment benefits and must have
been working in or residing in a
county for which the disaster
has been officially declared.
DUA benefits are available to
unemployed individuals for up
to 26 weeks from the date of the
disaster declaration. The 26-
weeks assistance period for Hur-
ricane Wilma ends April 29,
2006.
Federal regulations provide
that the unemployment of an
individual is caused by a disaster
if the individual: (1) becomes
unemployed as a direct result of
the disaster; or (2) is unable to
reach the place of employment
as a direct result of the disaster;
or (3) was scheduled to begin
work and does not have a job or


is unable to reach the job as a
direct result of the disaster; or
(4) has become the major sup-
port for a household because
the head of the household has
died as a direct result of the dis-
aster; or (5) cannot work
because of an injury caused
directly by the disaster.
Individuals applying for disas-
ter related unemployment assis-
tance will need to have the fol-
lowing information available:
Social Security number
Alien registration number
and expiration date (if a non-
U.S. citizen)
Name and address of most
recent employers)
If self-employed have proof
of self-employment for the past
two years
(State or Federal tax returns,
financial statements, bank
records of accounts, or 1099


Forms. Documentation neces-
sary to support a claim may be
faxed to 850-921-3938. Appli-
cant's Social Security number
should appear on all documents
submitted)
If scheduled to begin work
but could not work due to the
disaster, have name and address
of employer and the date work
was scheduled to begin
Beginning Monday, Oct. 31,
applications for DUA may be
filed by Internet at the following
web site address: www.fluid-
now.com now.com/> (indicate on the
application that it is a disaster
related unemployment claim).
Telephone applications may be
filed by calling (800) 204-2418.
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to
6 p.m. EST, Monday through Fri-
day.

Everyone should be aware of carbon monoxide


This week as residents of
South Florida who lost power
after Hurricane Wilma hooked
up generators, there were many
warnings about the dangers of
carbon monoxide. Generators
were linked to carbon monoxide
deaths after Hurricane Charley
last year and after Hurricane
Katrina this year. As we hooked
up a generator at my house, we
were well aware of the potential
dangers.
On Tuesday evening, I
received a phone call from my
hometown. My parents were
both in the hospital with carbon
monoxide poisoning. They hadn
t been using a generator. They
had, however, turned on their
gas furnace for the first time this
fall.
The following information
came from the Florida Depart-
ment of Health.
Question: What is Carbon
Monoxide?
Answer: Carbon monoxide
(CO) is an odorless, colorless,
tasteless gas that interferes with
the delivery of oxygen in the
blood to the rest of the body and
is highly poisonous.
Question: What are the major
sources of CO?
Answer: Carbon monoxide is
produced as a result of incom-
plete burning of fuels including
coal, wood, charcoal, natural
gas, gasoline, diesel, kerosene,
and heating oil. It can be pro-
duced by portable generators,
small gasoline engines, charcoal
grills, gas stoves, automobile
exhaust from attached garages,
and smoking tobacco. Problems
can arise as a result of improper
placement, installation, opera-
tion, maintenance of CO gener-


with Katrina Elsken


ating devices or appliances.
Improperly designed or mal-
functioning exhaust systems for
permanently installed home
combustion appliances may
also contribute to elevated CO
levels. Portable generators and
charcoal grills are major sources
of CO and should never be oper-
ated inside enclosed or partially
enclosed building or near doors,
windows and openings to the
house.
QUESTION: What are the
symptoms of Carbon Monoxide
Poisoning?
ANSWER: Depending on the
level of exposure, CO may cause
fatigue, weakness, chest pains
for those with heart disease,
shortness of breath upon exer-
tion, nausea, vomiting,
headaches, confusion, lack of
coordination, impaired vision,
loss of consciousness, and in
severe cases, death.
QUESTION: What should you
do if you think you have CO poi-
soning?
ANSWER: If you think you are
suffering from carbon monoxide
(CO) poisoning, you should get
fresh air immediately. Turn off all
combustion appliances and
leave the house. Go to an emer-
gency room. Be sure to tell the
physician that you suspect CO
poisoning. Don t ignore symp-

November is National Diabetes Month sponsored by the
American Diabetes Association.
Drs. Parrish and Youmans at Family Eye Care would like the
citizens of the LaBelle area to know that people who have had
diabetes for several years are at risk to develop a potentially
blinding condition called diabetic retinopathy and need to take
steps to protect their vision.
The cause of diabetic retinopathy it that, over time, diabetes
can weaken and cause changes in the small blood vessels that
nourish the retina, the delicate lining at the back of the eye con-
taining light-sensitive nerve cells needed for seeing. Looking
inside the eye with an instrument that allows direct viewing of
the blood vessels, the eye doctor can diagnose diabetic retinopa-
thy in its earliest stages when treatment is most effective.
At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of
ocular and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our.
office at 863-675-0761 for more information or to'set-up an

Wrath of Wilma hits power very hard


Monday morning found Hurri-
cane Wilma whipping through
South Florida leaving destruction
and devastation to areas served
by Glades Electric Cooperative.
Each day additional members
services are being restored as
quickly as possible.
While all of our service territo-
ries took a hit, our hardest hit
areas were in Glades and Hendry
Counties. At initial assessment of
the damages on Monday there
were over 130 poles down,
including several transmission
lines. In Hendry County, the
storm caused 41 transmission
structures feeding South Hwy.
835 to Big Cypress to fail. A large
portion of this line was laid
across Hwy. 835 causing exten-
sive damage to power equip-
ment. Some of the challenges the
cooperative is facing include
locating the replacement poles,
acquiring hardware, resetting the
poles, picking up the conductor
and performing all of this work in

Helping your child in the wake of Wilma


By Cheryl Abney
My granddaughter McKenzie's
attitude and comment still cause
me to smile at her version of "If
life gives you lemons, make
lemonade." McKenzie loves crit-
ters -any size, shape, or color.
This wanna-be-veterinarian
looked at the falfn tree and said
with anticipation, "When the tree
comes out, I"hn going to hunt
worms!" Out of the hurricane's
damage and inconvenience of no
electric or hot meals, she saw the
advantage of seeming disaster-
collecting worms from the
exposed earth. Good things, aside
from worms, can come out of dis-
aster-such as increased commu-
nication and appreciation for the
bonds of family, friends and
neighbors.
As your child returns to school,
they'll have the same demands of

study, homework, tests and per-
sonalities; but they'll also have
the additional stress of their Hurri-
cane Wilma experience. Your
child's behavior may change
immediately, nextweek, or even
next month as a result of the trau-
ma they've experienced. Each
child is unique though, and some
may never get upset enough to
show distress signals. The follow-
ing are a examples of stress symp-
toms you may encounter:
Behavior changes not usually
observed. A shy child may
become loud and aggressive,
while an outgoing child may
become quiet and fearful.
Your child may express fear of
recurring storms.
Your child may revert to bed-
wetting and thumb sucking.
Your child may become very
clingy and not want to be away
from your side.
A child may act afraid of loud


noises, particularly wind and rain.
The child may fear sleeping
alone at night, being alone in their
own room, or sleeping without a
night light.
One of the best ways parents
can help their children cope with
stress is to invite them to tell you
how they feel and actively listen
and respond. Take some time
apart with your child to prompt
their sharing. A trip to the park is
an ideal opportunity to talk and
listen 'to your child. Getting in
touch with nature, whether hunt-
ing worms or tossing a ball
together, helps parents and chil-
dren alike lessen the effects of
stress. If distance and circum-
stances prevent a day apart, con-
sider taking your boxed lunch to
the backyard for a picnic; or lying
on a blanket beneath the stars.
Your openness to their questions
and brief one-on-one time can
prepare them to transition back to


school and normalcy. Continue to
reassure them, often, that you are
there to take care of them. As
much as possible, maintain a reg-
ular schedule. You can assist your
child in creating and giving pic-
tures or stories about the recent
events. Spend extra time with
them at bedtime, using the oppor-
tunity to talk, and.comfort them.
As you establish order out of dis-
order in the days ahead, may you
find your upturned lives rich in
what is sometimes taken for
granted-each other; family,
friends and neighbors.

Water managers respond and assess


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues to
assess damage in response to the
onslaught of Hurricane Wilma and
continues to optimize operation of
the 1,700-mile regional water man-
agement canal system during the
aftermath of the storm. District
assessment teams found minimal
damage to water control struc-
tures, such as pumping stations,
and report that the system is
impaired but functional.
"While damage was minimal to
the structures," said Bob Howard,
the District's director of operations,
"telemetry and other communica-
tion with the structures are signifi-
cantly impaired because of damag-
ing high winds. Restoration of
communication and data teleme-
try is a top priority."
Significant wind damage was,
reported at the District's field sta-'
tion buildings in Clewiston, West
Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale,
Miami and Okeechobee Counties,
and minimal damage to buildings
in the Florida Keys and Collier
County.
"Generator fuel for the pump-
ing stations without power is also a


concern," Howard said, "but we
are working to secure more fuel."
Other assessment and response
activities include:
Field crews are removing
, canal debris and making minor
repairs to water control structures.
Contractors are being procured to
assist with large tree removal in the
southern areas of the District.
Lake Okeechobee is estimat-
ed at 16.34 feet. Uprooted vegeta-
tion and high turbidity are reported
in the lake.
Water levels in the Upper
Kissimmee, Kissimmee River and
Lake Istokpoga are responding to
rainfall (estimated at 4-6 inches) in
that area. Lake Kissimmee has
reached its regulation level. Lake
Tohopekaliga and East Lake
Tohopekaliga are rising as inflow to
those lakes increased. Water con-
trol structure adjustments are
planned for field crews again today.
Storm-water flowing into
Lake Okeechobee from Fisheating
Creek, Nubbin Slough, Taylor
Creek and Lake Istokpoga outlets is
high. Inflow estimates at this time
are 22,000 cubic feet per second,
meaning the lake is expected to


rise.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers is considering initiation of
Lake Okeechobee flood-control
releases to the Caloosahatchee
River at outflow structure S-77.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers is not considering initiation
of Lake Okeechobee releases to
the St. Lucie River at this time
because the volume of storm-
water basin flow into the St. Lucie
River (C-44 Canal) is too large for
the Corps to begin discharges to
the east.
The District continues to opti-
mize operation of the regional
water management system during
the aftermath of the storm.
Rainfall south of Lake Okee-
chobee has been moderate, with
estimates of 2-4 inches at this time.
Water Conservation Area 2A
and 3A remain above schedule.
Flood-control water releases con-
tinue at the outflow structures (S-
11 and S-12, water control struc-
tures).
In the coastal canal systems,
the water control system is func-
tioning well. Power outages have
occurred at water control struc-


tures throughout the southern end
of the District, from Homestead,
Miami to Broward County. Gener-
ators are functioning to provide
backup power to those sites affect-
ed.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement continues to coordinate
with local governments and other
entities responsible for water con-
trol systems.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement Emergency Operations
Center remains activated.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional, gov-
ernmental 'agency that oversees
the water resources in the south-
ern half of the state 16 counties
from Orlando to the Keys. It is the
oldest and largest of the state's five
water management districts. The
agency mission is to manage and
protect water resources of the
region by balancing and improving
water quality, flood control, natural
systems and water supply. A key
initiative is cleanup and restoration
of the Everglades.

Governor visits
Governor Bush stopped at the FEMA federal disaster relief
registration center at the Wal-Mart Superstore parking lot.
U.S. House Representative Mark Foley, Florida House
Speaker Allan Bense, and Florida House Representative
Denise Grimsley accompanied the governor Monday.


ilar reasons.
Since the evacuation, there
have been no patients housed at
HRMC. According to Larson, the
facility must await a State of
Florida inspection before the
health services can treat patients
on a regular basis.
"Most of our functions have
been restored since the storm,
but there are still problems that
are preventing us from being
able to offer certain services,"
Larson said.
The unavailable services
include elective surgery and
inpatient services. Residents
may still receive emergency
servicesand outpatient services
(excluding surgery).,
Because of the suspension of
surgical procedures, some elec-
tive surgery appointments had
to be canceled due to the storm.
The emergency, laboratory,
pharmacy, radiation, rehabilita-


tion and administrative depart-
ments have all been in full oper-
ation since Monday.
The State of Florida damage
inspections are expected to last
at least until Friday, Nov. 4, when
the hospital will hear reports
from the state inspectors. Pend-
ing those reports, the hospital
will not be able to house
patients.
"The major problems with
the building that needed imme-
diate attention have been taken
care of. All exterior damage and
broken windows have been
repaired, and the interior 'water
damage has been almost entire-
ly cleaned up," said Larson.
Power has been restored at
the HRMC facilities. The hospital
staff does not anticipate any
major interior structural repairs,
and expects to be fully opera-
tional as early as the state
inspectors will allow.


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 flat-priced, an
80 mg tablet costs the same as a
40 mg tablet. Split it in half and
one 80 mg tab is equal to two
40 mg tabs.

After you consult with your MD or
Healthcare provider, and show
them your DemiDoseTM pill splitter
they should prescribe your medica-
tion at twice your current tablet.
size, but indicate you take only 1/2
tablet daily. Instead of paying
for 30-tablets per month, you now
pay for 15-tablets that are twice
the size of what you now take.
When you half-split those larger
tablets, you use 'flat-pricing' to your
advantage.


DemiDose'" accurately, easily, and
safely splits leading brand prescrip-
tion medications used for:

> Cholesterol
> Heart Disease
> High Blood Pressure
> Thyroid
> Erectile Dysfunction
> Allergies
> Women's Health
> Mood
> Migraines
What medications can I split
with DemiDoseTM?
DemiDoseTI half-splits different
dose sizes of the following
medications:
> Accupril >Cialis
> Fosamax > Imitrex Oral@
> Levitra >' Lipitor
> Levaquin > Lexapro@
> Norvasc > Pravachoi
>Premarin > Prempro
> Synthrold > Viagra
> Zocor > Zoloft
> Zyprexa > Zyrtec
DemiDoseT1 also comes with a
generic splitting bed for accurately
splitting other medications.

in Clewiston, and began prepa-
rations for serving free hot meals
to all who were in need at lunch
and dinner at the parking lot of
the old K-Mart plaza and new

The disaster relief organiza-
tion was deployed by the South-
ern Baptist Convention, which
provided meals to thousands of
hurricane victims for eight days.
Food was also served by
nearly every church organiza-
tion and affiliate with the Clewis-
ton Ministerial Association.
According to city officials,
some of the churches and
organizations giving out food
and relief supplies included First

"We're in trouble," said Coker.
The United States Senate
approved a $51.8 billion disaster
bill for hurricane relief efforts on
Sept.' 8 in the wake of the devastat-
ing landfall of Hurricane Katrina on
the Gulf Coast.

state of Florida, which has a lot of
responsibility to the damaged areas
throughout the state," Mayor
Chamness said to the Governor.
"We are a small town, and you
have far exceeded our expecta-
tions," she said Monday at the
Clewiston EOC.
Governor Bush addressed ques-
tions at the EOC, which were pri-
marily requests for state assistance


zations.
The Salvation Army began
serving meals at the New Har-
vest Church on Saturday, Oct.
29.
The restoration of power to
more than 95 percent of the city
of Clewiston by Sunday, Oct. 30
,effectively lowered the need for
as many meals, and some of the
major concentrations of volun-
teers stopped serving open
meals and scaled down to more
localized distributions.
The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office has been serving a dual
role, primarily as the county's
law enforcement entity, but also
as a source.of relief and recovery
supply distribution. Days after
the storm, the HCSO began
transporting supplies to isolated
areas, provided by corporate
donors such as Beasley Broad-
casting out of Ft. Myers.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee headed
the distribution points, which
were set up in neighborhoods
that were far from other points
that were too far for residents
without reliable transportation.

or the Red Cross at emergency
shelters and distribution centers
throughout the region..
In addition to concerns over the
federal relief bill, local officials also
expressed an urgent need for feder-
al assistance with housing for thou-
sands of displaced families and res-
idents.
County and municipal officials
also expressed to Senators Nelson
and Martinez the pressing needs in
the area.
"We have had a devastating
blow to our area, and there are a lot
of folks in need of help with finding
a home," said Hendry County


for housing in the heavily damaged
area of Clewiston. Scenes of homes
completely demolished by the
winds of Wilma have become a
very painfully familiar sight to all
residents of Clewiston.
"I have certainly been con-
vinced that this community is in
need, especially in terms of hous-
ing," said Governor Bush. "The
state of things here definitely
appears positive, now that most of
the city has power restored," he
said.
The governor still acknowl-
edged the grave impact of the


The HCSO set up a distribution
center at the "Big V" conven-
ience store on Hooker's Point
Rd., where deputies and volun-
teers were helping distribute
food, water, baby supplies and
food, and countless other sup-
plies.
"We're going to keep giving
out help and supplies as long as
there are supplies to give," said
Sheriff Lee.
Federal assistance resources
arrived in Clewiston a few days
later than originally expected.
Officials were initially told to
expect FEMA to arrive Monday
night, but residents were not
able to receive FEMA relief sup-
plies at John Boy Auditorium
until midday Wednesday.
Since getting set up at John
Boy and Wal-Mart, FEMA has
been taking in requests for fed-
eral assistance, blue roofs, and

trations centers will remain
open at Wal-Mart and John Boy

are still hundreds of residents in
need of shelter, and they need
some means of temporary hous-
ing," said Commissioner Taylor.
According to Senator Nelson,
the process of legislative action
would take several days before the
Senate votes on an amendment to
the disaster relief bill, but the plan
has been initiated, and should be
successful.
"We have already begun to ask
fellow legislators to consider Hurri-
cane Wilma victims, and the
process of getting that done is
already in the works," said Senator
Nelson.

"There is a lot of work left to do,

Bush told reporters at the Clewis-

Governor Bush, along with rep-

U.S. Sugar assesses Hurricane Wilma damage


Losses could
be significant
CLEWISTON "Our local
communities have been severely
damaged. We are working with
local officials and FP&L to try to
restore power to critical communi-
ty services. At this time, Clewiston
and Belle Glade are virtually with-
out power and running water.
Many area houses have been
destroyed and most of our employ-
ees are without basic services,"
said Robert Coker, senior vice pres-
ident, Public Affairs.
Coker said that the company is
preparing land near the Clewiston
Airport for FEMA housing and are
working to provide land for hurri-
cane and agricultural debris.
"We are trying to restore critical


administrative functions at U.S.
Sugar, and we have begun the
process of assessing damage
throughout our operations," Coker
said.
Sugar Operations
Harvest and processing opera-
tions on the eastern side (Bryant
Mill) were suspended late last
week as the hurricane moved
toward Florida.
Due to the approaching storm,
we did not begin our scheduled
harvest on the western side serving
the Clewiston Mill. The Clewiston
Refinery closed during the week-
end prior to the storm and is
expected to be back up and run-
ning in the next five days.
Sugar farming and processing
operations throughout the Glades
suffered substantial damage as a


result of Wilma's 100-plus mph
wind and rain.. The sugarcane crop
has substantial damage across the
entire growing area.
The extent of the damage is not
known at this time, as we are in the
process of looking at each field,
many of.which remain flooded. It
will be some time before we have
initial damage estimates.
Our sugar mills also suffered
structural damage, in particular the
cooling towers and sugar storage
warehouses. In fact, all of the sugar
mills and warehouses in the Glades
area have been hit hard. Storage
warehouses are a critical part of the
sugar processing, as raw sugar is
stored to be sold and refined
throughout the year. Equipment
shops have been damaged and our
entire operations are without
power.


U.S. Sugar's internal railroad
suffered significant damage as
locomotives and railcars were
blown over, around and off the
tracks due to hurricane and torna-
do forces. Railroad tracks also sus-
tained significant damage and
crossing guards have been blown
down. We are working closely with
DOT to deal with these issues.
At this time, we do not know
when sugarcane harvesting and
processing will resume.
Citrus Operations
Although Florida Citrus Mutual
released an original estimate of 10-
15-percent citrus crop loss, our
early assessment reveals that num-
ber seriously underestimates the
loss. From what we have-seen in
our own and other area citrus
groves, approximately 40-50 per-


cent of the fruit is on the ground.
Further fruit loss most probably
will occur from these hurricane-
damaged trees.
Our Southern Gardens Citrus
Processing facility suffered signifi-
cant structural damage, but it does
have the ability to operate. We plan


to begin salvage harvesting and
processing fruit immediately. We
intend to get as much of the
dropped fruit into the plant as pos-
sible to limit crop losses.
We will have more information
as our ongoing field-by-field dam-
age assessments are completed.

st.ucie Cou.tn,


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, reported dam-
ages were incurred from hurricane
Wilma, a category three hurricane
that swept through southwest
Florida on Monday, Oct. 24.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "We
have sustained damages to a num-
ber of structures and crops in
Hendry and Collier Counties
including sugarcane, citrus and
vegetables due to hurricane
Wilma. We are currently in the
process of assessing the extent of
the damage. We should have a rea-
sonable estimate within the next
several weeks. The sugarcane and
citrus crops were insured under the
Federal Crop insurance program.
There were no major damages to
our Polk County operations."


About Alico
Alico, Inc., an agribusiness com-
pany operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, owns approxi-
mately 136,500 acres of land located

Emergency Response teams react


ORLANDO Benefiting from
a partnership built on the lessons
of Hurricane Andrew and
strengthened through eight major
hurricanes in Florida over the
course of 14 months the State
Emergency Response Team
(SERT) and FEMA officials' joint
Wilma Command at the State
Emergency Operations Center in
Tallahassee immediately put
response measures into place to
support the efforts of local emer-
gency responders following the
landfall of Hurricane Wilma.
"Communication is key in the
immediate aftermath of a hurri-
cane," said State Coordinating
Officer Craig Fugate. "Our joint
command enables us to leverage
state and federal resources to
respond swiftly to the -needs of
affected Floridians."
With the disaster declaration
announced Monday by President
Bush, federal disaster assistance
for eligible individuals may include
grants for renting another place to
live if the home is uninhabitable,
minor repairs to make the home
safe and sanitary, and other imme-
diate needs, as well as low-interest
loans for uninsured losses.
"Before Wilma reached Flori-
da's West Coast, we had teams in
place close to the projected path
so that we could move in as quick-
ly as possible once the storm
passed," Federal Coordinating
Officer Justin DeMello said.
"We've equipped our teams with
satellite phones so that as they
assess the situation, they can
report the needs of the communi-
ty to the command center and we
can immediately help our local


partners meet residents' needs."
The president's declaration
makes federal funding available to
affected individuals in Collier, Lee
and Monroe Counties. In addition,
federal funding is available to the
state and eligible local govern-
ments for debris removal and
emergency protective measures in
the counties of Brevard, Broward,
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Indi-
an River, Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, Okeechobee, Osceola,
Palm Beach, Polk, St. Lucie and
Sarasota.
More counties and additional
forms of assistance may be desig-
nated as assessments are com-
pleted in the affected areas. SERT
and FEMA are working together in
support of local emergency
responders in a number of ways,
including:
Commodities to Meet Imme-
diate Needs (Water, Ice, Meals) -
State commbdities have arrived at
local staging areas in affected
counties, with FEMA supplies fol-
Idwing closely behind to backfill
and ensure adequate supply to
meet immediate needs. State and
local officials have set up points of
distribution -in areas without
power staffed by local, state and
FEMA personnel to provide ice,
water and meals to those in need.
Check with county or local emer-
gency managers for distribution
locations, which are expected to
open today.
DMAT (Disaster Medical
Assistance Teams) and National
Disaster Medical System Four
SERT and FEMA teams are pro-
viding support in hard-hit Monroe


County, with additional teams
ready to move into other affected
areas, if needed. The Coast Guard
and Florida National Guard are
assisting in transporting medical
personnel into affected counties
by helicopter. In addition,
approximately 160 personnel
from the federal National Disaster
Medical System teams are
engaged and assisting the state
with medical needs.
USAR (Urban Search and
Rescue) Four USAR task forces
are already conducting reconnais-
sance in the hard-hit areas of Mon-
roe, Glades, and Hendry counties.
USAR is led by the Unified Team,
comprised of Florida Urban
Search & Rescue, FEMA, Florida
Fish & Wildlife and Florida Depart-
ment of Forestry components.
Four additional teams stand ready
to be deployed in other affected
areas, including Southeast Florida,
if necessary.
PDA (Preliminary Damage


Assessment) Teams Preliminary
damage assessments are conduct-
ed by joint local, state, and federal
teams. SERT and FEMA officials
are in South Florida to begin
assessments for Public Assistance.
The joint teams led by local offi-
cials will begin in the four south-
ernmost counties and work their
way north over then next three
days. Teams will also begin con-
ducting Individual Assistance
assessments in Southeast Florida
(Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm
Beach, Hendry, and Glades coun-
ties) as soon as local officials give
the go-ahead and direction.
To apply for disaster assistance,
those who sustained damages or
loss from Hurricane Wilma
should log on to www.fema.gov
or call (800) 621-FEMA (3362).
The TTY number for those with
speech or hearing impairment is
(800) 462-7585. Both numbers are
available 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
