Rural areas hit the hardest


By Bill Fabian
: HENDRY COUNTY Certain
areas within Hendry County
have been reported as the most
severely impacted rural areas
affected by Hurricane Wilma,
and such reports have prompted
an immediate assessment by
state and federal health officials
to determine the pressing needs
of area residents.
The report of extensive dam-
age to the rural areas was initially
declared by the Florida Depart-
ment of Health, and identified
Montura Ranch Estates and Pio-
neer Plantation as the most
severely damaged rural areas.
The Florida DOH made the


designation based on informa-
tion from local health directors,
field assessments, and power
company reports available on
Oct. 27, and requested a health
and needs assessment of the
areas by the Centers for Disease
Control.
On Nov. 1, 13 survey crews
were assigned to assess the
needs of residents in Montura
and Pioneer. The crews conduct-
ed the rapid health and needs
assessment of the areas. Each
crew was comprised of person-
nel from Florida DOH, CDC, and
North Carolina Public Health'.
According to, the draft report
released by the CDC, the rural
areas had a high demand for
relief assistance. The extent of


damages in the areas was high,
on an average comparable to
damages reported in neighbor-
ing Clewiston.
Health needs were the focus
of the assessments, reporting the
needs for medications and emer-
gency procurement of those pre-
scriptions. In terms of needs for
small children, some house-
holds were in need of diapers
and formula for children under
the age of two years.
In a summary of the immedi-
ate needs in rural areas of
Hendry County, it was reported
that nine out of ten households in
Montura Ranch Estates reported
receiving relief assistance of
some form as of Nov. 1 or 2.-Eight
out of 10 Pioneer households


The aftermath: Getting back to normal


reported receiving assistance.
One hundred and twenty-one
homes in Montura Ranch Estates,
more than 10 percent of all
homes in Montura, were consid-
ered to be uninhabitable due to
damage from Hurricane Wilma.
Another 630 homes were report-
ed to have received major or con-
siderable damage, but that were
still habitable.
In Pioneer Plantation, 18 per-
cent of households that require
daily medications reported being
without a three-day supply.
Of those households with a
child under two years of age,
three households did not have
access to a three-day supply of
diapers and/or formula, in both
Montura and Pioneer.


The extent of damages in Mon-
tura, especially in terms of homes
deemed uninhabitable, may be
accredited to the high percentage
of mobile homes in the area. Nine
hundred and ninety-four of 1,222
single-family homes in Montura
are mobile homes, with the rest
classified as single-family houses.
Utilities damages in Montura
and Pioneer were limited, with
less than 10 percent of all the sur-
veyed homes reporting a loss of
electricity, running water, working
toilet, telephone, or regular
garbage pickup services.
A little more than 36 percent of
Montura and Pioneer residents

Like the rest of Clewiston, Del Monte Avenue was littered by hundreds of pieces of
debris (above) from trees and damaged houses after Hurricane Wilma. Within days,
however, many city blocks such as this one (below) have returned to familiarity.


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Central Ele-
mentary School students and
teachers, as well as students
and teachers from Eastside and
Westside Elementary schools
.are. working hard to adapt to a
lot of changes brought about
by Hurricane .Vilma
Repairs to the Central Ele-
mentary building will take
approximately a month to a
month and a half, as teachers
and students hope to return to
a regular schedule by the
beginning of January.
In the meantime, the entire
faculty, staff and student body


from Central Elementary have
been relocated to Westside Ele-
mentary and parts of Eastside
Elementary, while repairs are
being made to the damaged
CES building.
In order' to fit the greater
number of students into one
building, all three schools will
hold shortened class days, with
WES and EES attending morn-
ing classes until lunchtime. CES
will hold classes from 1-5 p.m.
The shortened school days
will require a major adjustment
on the part of students and
teachers alike. According to

Bonita Bay's



proper plans



for Clewiston


By Alyssa Cameron
The view from U.S. Highway
27 will be dramatically different
in coming months. Strategically
placed homes, restaurants and
retail stores will soon replace
the acres of sugar cane along
the highway.
The Bonita Bay Group gen-
erated a contract with U.S.
Sugar in September to pur-
chase 502 acres of-land along
U.S. Highway 27, with the


intent of building Clewiston's
first master-planned communi-
ty.
Proper, responsible develop-
ment of areas in southern Flori-
da is vital to the environment,
said Dr. Mark Brown, University
of Florida associate professor in
environmental engineering sci-
ences.

State health services back


By Bill Fabian
HENDRY/GLADES COUNTY
- Florida's Department of
Health has resumed full opera-
tional status after Hurricane
Wilma, offering services such
as flu vaccinations, environ-
mental health services, and
resource assistance for general
Red Cross shelters, which are
expected to be open for weeks
- perhaps months after the
storm.
The State of Florida Depart-
ment of Health reported mini-
mal resource damages and
losses due to Hurricane Wilma.
According to Executive Director
of Community Nursing and
interim Administrator Pat Dob-
bins, no major wind damage
occurred at the Health Depart-


ment offices on Olympia Street,
in Clewiston.
Some flu vaccinations were
reported damaged due to refrig-
eration problems, but backup
supplies were readily available
from DOH offices in LaBelle,
according to Dobbins.
Deputy State Health Officer
Bonita J. Sorensen visited the
Clewiston offices of the Florida
Department of Health, and
found the staff and state offices
to be in good working order
after the storm.
"The most important safety
concern to be aware of during
these recovery efforts is that of
public health," said Dr.
Sorensen, who toured the
Clewiston DOH offices recently
named after Dr. Martha Valiant,
the longtime administrator who


retired this summer.
"I'm glad to see the offices
here are in good shape, and the
staff seems to have responded
very well to the hurricane," said
Dr. Sorensen.
Sorensen, the second-in-
command of the Florida DOH,
arrived in Clewiston Thursday
morning to meet with Dobbins
and the Clewiston Health
Department staff.
The DOH will continue to
provide emergency resource
assistance for shelters as long as
they are needed. The Red Cross
has maintained an emergency
shelter at the John B. Boy Audi-
torium since the destruction
caused by Hurricane Wilma.
The storm destroyed hun-

In the Military


David S. Heflin
Navy Seaman Recruit David S.
Heflin, a 2005 graduate of Moore
Haven High School, Moore Haven,
Fla., recently completed U.S. Navy
basic training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, I11.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Heflin completed a variety of
training which included classroom
study and practical instruction on
naval customs,
first aid, firefighting, water safety
and survival, and shipboard and
aircraft safety. An emphasis was
also placed on physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the skills and
confidence they need to succeed in
the fleet. "Battle Stations" is
designed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice, dedi-
cation, teamwork and endurance
in each recruit through the practi-
cal application of basic Navy skills
and the core values of Honor,
Courage and Commitment. Its dis-
tinctly "Navy" flavor was designed


to take into account what it means
to be a Sailor.
Chris A. Hogan
Navy Chief Petty Officer Chris A.
Hogan, son of Mary F. Hogan of
Moore Haven, Fla. and Johnnie W.
Hogan of Moore Haven, Fla., and
more than 470 Navy reservists

ditionary Logistics Support Force
(NAVELSF) Charlie home based in
Williamsburg, Va., and deployed to
Iraq and Kuwait in support of the
Global War on Terrorism.
During the deployment,
Hogan's unit will work directly for
the Army to provide a critical com-
bat service support mission. Sailors
are relieving Army personnel as
part of a scheduled force rotation.
NAVELSF Charlie's primary mis-
sion is cargo handling, which
includes vessel on-loading and off-
loading as well as conducting mar-
shalling yard operations.
Hogan is a 1980 graduate of
Salem High School of Salem, Va.
and joined the Navy in June 1984.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello my

a five-year old rottweiler named

Is cutting a rottweiler's tail some-

A: Hello. Jenny and congratula-

there were reasons to cut tails -
such as for hunting, tracking and i

Overcoming Post Hurricane Stress


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Artists, when painting, do not
always stand at an arm's length
from their canvas. The best artists
know that they
need to occa-
sionally step
back from their
work and view
it from a dis-
tance. They
need to see
how their
thousands of
small brush- PastorJohn
strokes are fit- Hicks
ting together to
produce the overall result.
Likewise, our perspective on life
is much improved if sometimes we
can step back and see the whole
picture. If we aren't careful, we can
become so occupied with daily
brush-strokes that we have no real
perception of the whole scene we
are painting on our canvas of life.
Our attentions can be so con-


sumed by the requirements of daily
living that we have little awareness
of the dimensions and directions of
life itself.
Hurricane Wilma blew in and
stripped all the leaves off of our
hibiscus bush. It blew in and
stripped a lot of the normalcy out
of our lives. Since our encounter
with "Miss Wilma", many of us
have been going full steam -
from just trying to manage, to put-
ting in a lot of hours trying to recu-
perate or helping others recuper-
ate. I realized that I have been
stressing out. I get more irritable
more quickly. I've been short tem-
pered with my wife (sorry honey!)
This morning I even broke down
and cried just to release what's
been building up inside of me. I
realized I am suffering from post-
hurricane stress syndrome. I've
been going non-stop, and it's
affecting me.
The pioneers found out that
they could travel further and faster
if they traveled six days and rested


one than if they kept going seven
days straight. This is a good lesson
for us to embrace.
There is a reason that God has
given us instructions to take time
out of our lives to "be still". There
is a reason why we are instructed
to labor six days and to rest one.
Doing this helps us keep our per-
spective. Doing this helps us main-
tain our direction. Doing this helps
us feed our inspiration. Doing this
helps keep us connected with our
Creator. Doing this also enables us
to stay with it for the long run.
This week, I encourage you to
join me in taking some time to
step back from the canvas a little.
Let us look beyond the varied
episodes of our daily doings and
to the longer and larger picture.
Let us look beyond the brush-
strokes, which make the art to see
the art which the brush-strokes
have made and are making.
We have come together as a com-
munity in the midst of devasta-
tion. We still have a long way to


go before the picture is complete.
Let us do in our hearts what we
need to do to make sure the mas-
terpiece gets completed. Let us
make sure we take a step back
and renew our perspective. Let us
make a special effort to rest our
minds, our bodies, and our souls
so we are able to complete what
we have started with good inspi-
ration and proper perspective.
And as we continue painting on
our canvas of life, remember that
the Master Painter has made Him-
self available to help us in all of our
needs. There is no errant brush
stroke that the Master Painter can't
correct. There is no canvas that is
so messed up that it can't be trans-
formed into a work of art. Remem-
ber also that the dark colors are as
needful as the bright colors to cre-
ate a masterpiece in life, and that
each one of us is a masterpiece!
Added note: My hibiscus bush
has started putting out new leaves
and will soon be back to normal. I
am determined to do the same.


Different answers to ordinary questions


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
People expect college profes-
sors to be strange seminary
professors usually can go them
one better.
They are spe-
cial people
and generally ..
revered by .
their students.
They can be .
charters too. j
One of my
classmates
complained Rev. Samuel S.
about getting a Thomas
"D" on one of
his papers, feeling that he should
have gotten a better grade. The
professor told him, "But that's
the best 'D' paper I ever read!"
Another student asked a
question in class one day and the
professor stopped a second and
looked at him, then he said, "Do
you realize what you've asked?
Your question is like 'have you
stopped beating your wife?'
You're darned if you do and
you're darned if you don't. Now


the question you really meant to
ask was,.." and then the profes-
sor made up his own question
and answered it. The years of
teaching experience gave
insights into how to deal with
students as well as how to come
up with novel approaches to
awkward situations.
One day not too long ago, I
had a telephone sales person
call me and ask if I was interest-
ed in buying something. I told
her that this was a private phone
and that I didn't transact busi-
ness on it. She said, "What do
you mean?" I told her that we
were paying for a private person-
al phone and it was not for busi-
ness purposes, so I'd be cheat-
ing the phone company if I did
business without paying for a
business line. She tried to reiter-
ate her sales pitch again and I
told her that she would have to
call me at our commercial num-
ber if she wanted to sell some-
thing. She then asked, "What's
that?" and I told her it was in the
phone book. I don't think any-
one had ever told her before the
difference between commercial
and private phone lines.


As I reflected on our conver-
sation, it occurred to.me that a
-part of what I learned in semi-
nary was how to look at things in
other ways. Sometimes the les-
sons were a bit facetious, and
sometimes they were serious.
We were there to learn how to
look at things in other ways -
God's way and the way of faith.
That wasn't always the way that
others looked at things, but that
was to be a part of our contribu-
tions to the people of God in our
ministries.
There is a parable about a
widow who was poor who
made an offering of two very
small copper coins
(Markl2:42ff) while the rich
threw in large amounts of
money. Jesus called his disciples
and said, "I tell you the truth, this
poor widow has put more into
the treasury than all the others;
they gave out of their wealth but
she gave out of her poverty put
in everything all that she had
to live on. (verse 440) The ideas
about loving your enemies or
giving in secret or worshipping
when you don't feel like it are
not the ways of the faithless.


They are from a Lord who
called His followers to be in the
world .but not of it. Jesus taught
his followers how to look at
things in entirely new ways and
that's what made all of the differ-
ence. We don't have to look at
things as others see them the
gift of faith can open our eyes to
seeing a widow make a sacrifice
and understanding that hers was
the greatest gift.
It can open our eyes to chang-
ing the world by loving our ene-
mies when force only begets
force. It can lead us to worship
when we're having a "dark night
of the soul" and to stick with it
until the light shines again. It can
help us the end of hurricane sea-
son and to rebuild or give us the
strength when a major illness
strikes. Faith can carry who were
called to be "fishers of men" and
not of fish, or shaken out of their
everyday life into whole other
world all doing and thinking
about things in a new way and
blessed by God for it. With it
comes a wonderful opening of
doors faith is rewarded and
God gives us more than he
receives.


Pioneer Happenings


By Pat Bosley

Hurricane Wilma
Thirty years ago when we
moved from Fort Lauderdale to
Hendry County, more specifically,
Pioneer Plantation, my parents
and brothers thought we were
crazy. My dad used to kid us and
call our country living "a retarded
hog farm". Where he came up
with that name, well you just had
to know my dad. This has been a
very good place to raise our chil-
dren and grandchildren.
With the resent disaster that
has' reached this county in the
form of Hurricane Wilma, I
appreciate and love this county.
even more. We spent a week in
the Pioneer Community Center, a
safe place, and a hurricane shel-
ter. There are so many to whom I
would like to say, "Thank you." To
Glades Electric for getting our
power back on as fast as they did.
My brother in Fort Lauderdale still
is without power.
To Sheriff Ronnie Lee, for all he
did to keep things running
smoothly. To all the people in
Emergency Management and
county jobs that were called to do
other jobs due to the storm. To
Sgt. Barbara Brown and Deputy
Mel Brant during the worse
part of the storm the backdoor on
the community center was
sucked open, Sgt. Brown and
Deputy Brant took no thought of
thier own safety, but went out and
used a tire iron to get the door
shut and keep everyone safe.
There isn't enough space to tell all
the things they did for Pioneer, the
hours of patrolling, checking on
people, passing out food and


other necessities.
To. the National Guard, they
were awesome. To the Red Cross
for the great hot meals. To the Pio-
neer Volunteer Fire Dept, Chief
Edith Timms, Raymond Timms
and all the others that helped pass
'out ice, water, MRE's and food.
The many hours of volunteer time
that they all spent at the fire
department.
Thank you to Penny Beigh
from Fort Myers, who came over
to check on us when the phones
weren't working and brought ice
and food. To Felix and Patricia
Oliva (Purkey's), and Yoel Esquiv-
el for the snacks and goodies they
brought to the community center
for people to share.
My brother in Fort Lauderdale
could not believe all the help that
we were receiving, it just isn't like
that in the "big city". I'll take the
country life any day.

Fire department
Chief Edith Timms would like
for everyone to know that there
are still a few tarps at the fire
department, if anyone in the Pio-
neer area still needs them. You
can call her at 983-9533 or 673-
2947 and make arrangements to'
pick them up.
Forestry is allowing the burn-
ing of hurricane debris but does
request that you call for a burn
permit. The number to call is
(239) 690-3502. You will need
your strap number, section,
range, and township.
Rabies shots
Pioneer 4-H clubs will be
sponsoring the 9th annual Pro-
tect-a Pet rabies shots for dogs
and cats. The cost is $7 per ani-

Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoih
Phase
November 27 2005

The South Florida Water Management District will hold a WRAC
Issues Workshop meeting on Monday, November 21, 2005. The
purpose of this meeting will be to discuss the concepts
presented in the Everglades Agricultural Area Reservoir Phase
1 (a component of the Acceler8 Program) Basis of Design Report
(BODR) and encourage and provide an opportunity for public
participation. The BODR is available for review on the Acceler8
w e b site ('--- : .-.,- .-- .. i -"... .. .. ).


When: Monday, November 21, 2005
S Open House: 5:00-6:00 PM
m Meeting: 6:00-8:00 PM
8 Where: The South Florida Water Management District
B-1 Auditorium
3301 Gun Club Road
West Palm Beach, Florida 33406


The Phase I project is an above ground reservoir for water storage,
with a capacity of 190,000 acre-feet parcel at a maximum depth of
12 feet. The purpose is to capture, move and store regulatory
releases from Lake Okeechobee, reducing the number/volume of
harmful discharges to coastal estuaries; capture, move and store
agricultural stormwater runoff, reducing the need for emergency
flood control backpumping into Lake Okeechobee; improve
operational flexibility to move water within the EAA, including'flow
equalization and optimization of Stormwater Treatment Area
performance to further reduce phosphorus inflows to the Everglades;
improve flood protection for lands adjacent to Bolles and Cross
canals.

For additional information regarding this meeting, please contact
Renee DeSantis (561) 682-6844 or ', .i .,f.' u ..-.

Rural Health Network donates $12,000 Winter sports schedule. See sports, Page 13


The money will help
nursing students in
Belle Glade
Belle Glade The Lake
Okeechobee Rural Health Net-
work has donated $12,000 to
Palm Beach Community College
to provide stipends for the 12
students currently enrolled in
the Practical Nursing program in
Belle Glade.
The stipends will allow the
students to pay for anything
from books and tuition to trans-
portation and childcare.
"PBCC is excited to have
community partners to help fill
nursing vacancies in the Glades
area. The unrestricted stipend
awards to students can provide
resources for items such as
transportation and child care
that will help sustain them
through their program," said
Jacqueline Rogers, dean of
health sciences and occupation-
al education. "The burden of
paying these expenses often
requires students to work more
hours when they need to con-
centrate on their practical nurs-
ing training."
The Lake Okeechobee Rural
Health Network, Inc. (LORHN)
was established in 1994 as a
nonprofit corporation designed
to provide for the special and
specific needs of the residents,

It has been two weeks since
Hurricane Wilma tore through
South Florida. But hurricane-
related dangers are still a threat. A
Statistically, more people are Healthier
killed after a storm than during a
hurricane. Life \
Some of the things to watch
out for include: .
Debris: All sorts of hurri-
cane debris still litters the road- with Katrina Elsken

marked increase in tire repairs snakes may be on the move and
as tires pick up nails, bits of might be found in some unusual

Snakes: After a storm, spiders may also be a problem if


they have been displaced.
Fire danger: Use flashlights
instead of candles to reduce the
chance of accidental fire.
Carbon monoxide poison-
ing: Those using generators
must take care to make sure
they are properly ventilated.
Never use a generator in an
enclosed area, such as a garage.
Chainsaw injuries: With
downed trees everywhere, it
may be tempting to use a chain-
saw. However, if you have never
used a chainsaw before, you
could wind up in the emergency
room. Ask someone who is
experienced in using a chainsaw
to show you how. Always wear
safety goggles when using a
chainsaw.
Mold: Water damaged
buildings may have mold
growth. You may not be able to
see it, as the mold may be inside
the walls, ceilings or crawl
spaces. Some molds can make


humans sick. If your home is
water damaged, have it checked
for mold. Some molds can be
cleaned with a bleach solution.
For some toxic molds, you may
need professional help.
^Dehydration: Since some
water supplies were contami-
nated by hurricane damage, nor-
mal sources of drinking water
may be restricted. However, bot-
tled water is available. Make
sure you drink enough water to.
prevent dehydration. Generally,
a human needs about eight
glasses of water a day. If you are
working outdoors clearing hurri-
cane debris, you might need to
drink more.
. Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you are
on any prescription drugs. Some
prescription drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy".

corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

the seven days following the hurri-

of 10 homes were not warned
about post-storm safety issues,
such as carbon monoxide poison-


Students
Continued From Page 1
Central Elementary Principal
Anna Jo Springfield, the period of
adjustment has been progressing
as smoothly as anyone could
have expected.
"The first few days back were
a little hectic, and it took a lot of
adjustment, especially with every-
one having to move into a new
building and get used to a much
later school day," said Mrs.
Springfield. "We're finally getting
into a more comfortable groove
now that everyone has had time
to settle into the routine," she
said.
Students will only be in class
for four hours, requiring a tempo-
rary scaled-down curriculum
focused on reading and math.
Other areas, including art, music,
physical education, and media
center activities, will be temporar-
ily suspended. Faculty members
in those areas will assist with the
primary math and reading les-
sons and tutoring, according to
Mrs. Springfield.
"Everything has generally
gone well, with no major prob-


ing, and other issues including
chainsaw, roof, or ladder safety.
Recommendations by the CDC
from the report were given to the
Hendry County Emergency Opera-
tions Center, the Hendry County
Health Department, and the Flori-
da DOH for immediate use in
deploying resources for response
to Hurricane Wilma and in plan-
ning responses for future disasters.


lems with the modified curricu-
lum," said Mrs. Springfield, who
will share administrative offices
with members of the staff of
Westside Elementary.
"The biggest problem we've
had has been with getting lunch
served within schedule," said Mrs.
Springfield. "It's been hard to stay
on track when more than 1,800
students are eating in one cafete-
ria, with a limited time to get all
three schools through," she said.
Despite the dramatically differ-
ent landscape of each of the ele-
mentary schools, students appear
to have reacted well to the
changes. No major disciplinary
problems have occurred.
Instead, students have shown
remarkable poise and patience
with the new system, according
to guidance counselor Paul
Samerdyke.
"These students have shown
themselves to be amazingly
resilient," said Samerdyke. "Their
overall behavior has been man-
ageable since the storm they
almost seem sort of subdued after
the storm, and yet happy to be
back at school," he said.
The return to a regular sched-
ule may have a positive effect on
both the students and staff of

ative effects," Brown said. "But if
done right and the people who are
doing it have an understanding of
how to do it correctly, they can
minimize those negative effects
and may even enhance the envi-
ronment."
The privately owned Bonita
Bay Group has developed six mas-
ter-planned communities in South
Florida over the past 20 years.
"We have slightly different con-
cerns regarding the environment
than public companies," said
Mitch Hutchcraft, Bonita Bay
Group regional vice president.
"We have an ethic to look for
ways to respect and enhance the
environment."
Being conscious of environ-
mental elements is especially
important in South Florida, Brown
said. New studies have shown
that standard development proce-
dures to create a drier landscape
may create a colder climate,
which could be detrimental to
agricultural communities like
Clewiston.
The Bonita Bay Group's efforts
to reestablish natural water flow,
increase natural habitat, and land-
scape with native plants have
earned the company environmen-
tal awards, including more
Audubon International seals of
approval than any other developer
in the world.
The Bonita Bay Group plans to
conserve land on the southern
side of the highway and "restore a
nature-oriented plant palate" on
the northern side where sugar
cane now grows.

dreds of homes already in need of
repairs and reinforcements after
last year's storms, and hundreds
of residents have been displaced.
Those displaced residents shel-
tered at the Red Cross shelter
numbered 155 two weeks after
the storm, and that number has
continued to grow since the end
of the storm, according to Red
Cross volunteers. The greatest
influx of displaced residents
occurred after the first rainstorm
fell on Tuesday night.
Special needs shelters were
administered by the Florida DOH,
which provided emergency hel-
ter for individuals with medical
needs relating to oxygen tanks,
home health and medical super-
vision, and medical equipment
dependent on electricity.
These shelters were held at
Central Elementary School, and
the special needs individuals had
to be moved after the storm due
to extensive damage to the CES
building. The special needs
patients were taken to Lee Memo-


each of the schools.
"Most of the students
appeared to be relieved to return
to a sense of structure, the chance
to see a friendly face, and a gener-
al atmosphere of positivity," said
Samerdyke. "As a result, there has
been a noticeable decrease in
behavior problems," he said.
The fury of Hurricane Wilma
has not been forgotten, and some
students may have trouble coping
with the trauma of witnessing
major destruction. A lot of stu-
dents' families have lost their
homes due to the storm, and
some are staying in the Red Cross
emergency shelter at John B. Boy
Auditorium.
Of the 620 students enrolled at
CES, 87 percent (approximately
540) have returned to classes.
According to Mrs. Springfield, the
remaining 13 percent have been
withdrawn to be home-schooled,
or have moved to other areas with
their families where safe housing
could be found.
Students and faculty have
made good progress through the
process of coping with the stress
of the disaster. Dr. Paul Hofacre
led the students through activities
designed to help them be able to
talk openly about their experi-


"I'm confident in them
because of work they have already
done," said Clewiston Mayor Mali
Chamness. "They always incorpo-
rate preserving the environment
into their developments."
Clewiston was created in the
early 1920s as a planned city for an
agricultural-related industrial area,
and Hutchcraft used these early
plans for inspiration.
"Clewiston is a special place,"
Hutchcraft said. "We want to
build on the quality that is already
there."
"I've been very impressed with
the quality of development,"
Chamness said. "The residential
developments I've seen have a
small-town feel that will only
enhance Clewiston."
The Bonita Bay Group will
market the development to area
working families, retirees in
search of a second home, and
families who now live on Florida's
more populated coasts that are in
search of a slower-paced lifestyle.
As more people move to this
area, the economy will improve
because of to an increased
demand for the goods and servic-
es provided by local businesses,
Chamness said.
"Most people of Clewiston will
see the development as a positive
thing," she said.
The Bonita Bay Group doubts
that the project will be delayed
because of Hurricane Wilma, but
is concerned with Clewiston's
recovery. They donated $25,000 to
the city and the United Way in
addition to transporting water,
canned food and baby supplies to
the area.


rial to continue being supervised.
Dobbins, along with Disaster
Preparedness Director David
Quinn, reported that DOH disas-
ter recovery efforts will continue
as long as health concerns remain
an issue.
"We will have to be focused,
on rural health, in addition to
compassion fatigue," said Dob-
bins. "There are so many people
out there helping out, cleaning
up, and providing assistance, that
there is bound to be a point at
which some folks reach a
burnout we have to make sure
that our staff does not suffer that
consequence," said Dobbins.
State officials are prepared to
provide professional assistance in
such events, for which a psychol-
ogist and medical physician are
available to anyone in need of
counseling in the aftermath of the
storm.,
"We're seeing some call-ins
reporting post traumatic stress
cases, and a lot of burnout cases,"
said Quinn. "We want to provide
the opportunity for folks to help
manage stress and get through
this crisis, and eventually get back
to some sense of normalcy," he
said.


ences and be able to deal with the
trauma of the storm.
"The students created a series
of drawings to deal with their
experiences. First, everyone drew
a picture of the hurricane, of
whatever they remember from
the storm, and hung the pictures
up on a wall. Second, they all
drew pictures of the recovery
stage everyone was going
through, and when completed,
they put those pictures over the
first pictures. Finally, they all drew
pictures of what things look like
now, and what they want things
to look like. They put those pic-
tures on the wall,. and that
seemed to help a lot of the stu-
dents through the coping
process," said Mrs. Springfield.
The ability to return to classes
has proven to be a welcome
opportunity for students and
teachers. Despite the extensive
destruction caused by Hurricane
Wilma, the response from within
the community and the Hendry
County School Board allowed
schools to return to regular class-
es nine days after the storm,
showing that the community is
well on its way to recovery.

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 is 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
appointment.

TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush activated Florida's Small
Business Emergency 'Bridge Loan'
Program to provide emergency,
short-term loans to businesses in
counties severely impacted by Hur-
ricane Wilma. Applications will be
available by Friday in Broward, Col-
lier, Glades, Hendry, Lee, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee, Palm
Beach counties and the Glades
communities of Belle Glade, Paho-
kee, and South Bay. The Governor
has allocated $20 million from Gen-
eral Revenue to fund the Bridge
Loan Program.
The, appropriation is made
through a budget amendment pur-
suant to the Governor's emergency
declaration.
"Hurricane Wilma impacted
millions of Floridians, including
hundreds of small businesses and
the employees who work in them,"
said Governor Bush.
"The quick revitalization of our
small businesses is a vital part of
the State's recovery from the devas-
tation of Hurricane Wilma. Offer-
ing an immediate source of cash
flow for businesses in need allows
impacted businesses to quickly re-
open their doors in the wake of the
storm. I thank the Florida Legisla-
ture for their expedient and
thoughtful response to Hurricane


Wilma recovery efforts, in part
through requesting the reactivation
of the bridge loan program."
The state's emergency bridge
loan program is designed to pro-
vide a source of expedient cash
flow to businesses physically dam-
aged during a major catastrophe,
enabling them to quickly begin
repairs and replace destroyed
inventory. These short-term loans
are intended to "bridge the gap"
between the time a major catastro-
phe hits and when a business has
secured other resources, such as
profits from revived a business,
payment of insurance claims or
secured longer-term loans.
The Florida Small Business
Emergency Bridge Loan Program
was first activated in the aftermath
of Hurricane Andrew in an effort to
provide short-term emergency
funds to businesses in need of
immediate cash flow. The bridge
loan program has subsequently
been used to minimize economic
impacts of the Winter Storm of
1993, the Northwest Florida Floods
of 1994, Hurricane Opal, Hurricane
Georges, Hurricane Charley, Hurri-
cane Frances, Hurricane Ivan, Hur-
ricane Jeanne, and Hurricane Den--
nis.
Short-term loans of up to
$25,000 will be available to owners


of small businesses (less than 100
employees) in those counties most
impacted by Hurricane Wilma. The
interest-free loans come in terms of
90-day or 180-day maturities. To be
eligible, a business owner must
have been operational for one full
year prior to Hurricane Wilma
(Oct. 24) and have verifiable, physi-
cal damage to their business.
A five-member committee com-
prised of three local bankers, one
community representative and one
representative from Enterprise
Florida, Inc. or the Governor's
Office of Tourism, Trade, and Eco-
nomic Development reviews appli-
cations for approval. The time from
application through closing of
loans is as little as 72 hours.

POMPANO The 1A regional
volleyball tournament saw teams
from around South Florida deal
with much adversity following
the aftermath of Hurricane
Wilma.
After securing second place to
King's Academy for the district
runner up title, the Lady Gators
found themselves in the midst of
a lengthy delay before gefting


back on the court to prepare
themselves for regional action
against Pompano Highlands
Christian Nov. 1.
The Lady Gators were glad to
get back on the court, but the
going was rough.
"After a week without practice
because of Wilma, our first prac-
tice was without electricity," said
head coach Kathy MacReynolds.
"We had light by opening the
doors to the gym. The girls were


ready to get back on the court
and it was a great reunion after
the disaster. But we just didn't
have enough 'wind' behind us to
pull out an upset."
The Lady Gators fell to Pom-
pano in three straight sets with
losses of 25-16, 25-21, and 25-13.
Senior Ashley Baughman led the
team in service points with eight
and led the team with 10 kills and
two blocks. Sophomore Natalie
Harville contributed with five


kills as did Danielle Sly.
The young Lady Gators con-
cluded their season with an 11-
17 record and a district runner up
title, as well as a regional appear-
ance, all good signs for this
young squad in the coming year.
. "We ended our season with
an 11-17 record and hope that
with this year's experience that
we can get back to our playoff
status next year," said coach
MacReynolds.


Gators wrap up championship with a victory


By Mark Young
MOORE HAVEN The
Glades Day Gators claimed full
rights to the District 6-1A cham-
pionship with a 54-30 victory
over their district and lake-area
rivals from Moore Haven High
School.
Glades Day was originally
scheduled to close out their sea-
son at home against Northwest
Christian in a non-district match
up, but thanks to the disruptions
of Hurricane Wilma, the Gators
were required to finish their dis-
trict schedule, which pitted
them against a scrappy, albeit
struggling, Terrier squad on Nov.
4.
The Terriers have posted
some solid performances this'
year, dropping three of their
games by seven points or less
this season. The Moore Haven
defeat will end their season with
a 1-7 record, which is not an
indication of their performance
this year.


The Gators on the other
hand, won five straight games,
including two district games,
after dropping their season,
opener' King's Academy
stunned the Gators on their
home field the first ever victo-
ry for the Lions on Gator Field -
before Glades Day concluded
their district championship sea-
son over the Terriers.
The Gators posted a pair of
touchdowns in the first quarter
with Frank Lugo crossing the
goal line both times, one from
14 yards out and the second
from 13 yards out. It would be
the third time this season Lugo
rushed for over 200 -yards
against an opponent. Lugo con-
cluded the game with an impres-
sive 285 yards on 19 carries and
scored four times, including a
51-yard scamper in the fourth
quarter.
The two Lugo scores in the
first quarter put the Gators up
14-0 after the first quarter whis-


tle blew. Lugo and Lloyd Monds
added scores in the second
quarter before Moore Haven
found their way onto the score-
board with a 15-yard. hook up
from McCloud to Platt. Josh
McGregor returned the favor for
Glades Day after finding Fernan-
dez from 19 yards out to give the
Gators a 34-6 lead at the break.
Glades Day. came out the
locker room the same way they
entered it with McGregor finding
Hendry for a 35-yard strike to
open up the third quarter scor-
ing and Smith would pick off a
Rod Huggins pass and return it
85 yards for another Gator score.
Moore Haven settled down to
score two times in the third
quarter with Huggins running
one in from two yards out and
hooking up with his wide out
Smith from 20 yards out.
Moore Haven was successful
on each of their two-point con-
versions to leave the score
standing at 47-22 with one quar-


CA. NOW


ter left to play.
Both teams would find the
endzone once in the final quar-
ter, with Lugo getting his 51-yard
scamper and Kelly scoring from
one yard out for the Terriers to
leave the final score standing at
54-30.
The Terriers moved the ball
well against a very stingy Gator
defense picking up 274 yards on
the ground and an additional
133 yards in the air. Huggins was
10-of-18, but had three picks and
one TD strike.
It was one of the better per-
formances against the Gator
defense this year, but the Gator
offense came to play too.
McGregor was 5-of-6 for 105
yards and a pair of TDs and
Lugo's 285 yards and four touch-
downs says it all.
As district champs, the Gators
will host the Nov. 11 playoff
game against District 5 runner
up Shorecrest Prep out of St.
Petersburg.

SOUTH LAKE There is noth-
ing quite like the sights and smells
of playoff football and Nov. 11 will
signal the beginning of the chase
for state championship glory for
four of the five lake-area schools.
Only one school in the South
Lake coverage area did not make
this year's playoff run and that
would be the Moore Haven Terriers,
who finished the season with a 1-7
record despite some good efforts
on the gridiron.
The Gators of Glades Day High
School finished the year with a 6-2
season record and were perfect in
their district with a 3-0 record. The
Gators captured the 6-1A district
title with a 32-12 over Evangelical
who earned a playoff berth with a
second place finish, an 18-0
shutout over St. John Neumann
and a 54-30 victory over Moore
Haven in the regular season finale.
Glades Day will host Shorecrest
Prep Nov. 11 in the first round of the
playoffs. Shorecrest wrapped their
regular season with a 6-4 record
and went 3-1 in district play to finish
second in District 5. After three
straight losses, including two
shutouts, Shorecrest rallied to win
six of their last seven games, includ-
ing one forfeit and picked up a pair
of shutout victories.
The Clewiston Tigers also cap-
tured their championship within
the 6-2A battle with a perfect 4-0
district record, to include a forfeit
victory over St. Andrews. But the
Tigers walloped Inlet Grove 54-6,
and won a pair of squeakers over


I


Pope John Paul II (12-10) and Car-
dinal Newman (37-34).
The Tigers went on a rampage
to end their season with a 5-3
record, losing only to quality teams
like Glades Central and Glades Day.
The Tigers will host District 8 run-
ner up Coral Shores High School
who finished the season with a 6-2
record.
The defending state champs
from Pahokee High School finished
the season with a second place fin-
ish in 7-2B play. The Blue Devils had
a 3-1 record, but lost to King's
Academy 16-6 who also finished
with a 3-1 record, giving the Lions
the edge for the championship title.
For the Blue Devils, it was their
only loss of the season finishing the
year with a 7-1 overall record and
dispatched the rest of their district
opponents with relative ease.
The Blue Devils will have to take
to the road in their quest for the
coveted three-peat and will face an
undefeated Parkway squad in Mira-
mar Nov. 11. Parkway concluded
their season with an 8-0 record put
up some impressive offensive
numbers during the year.
Glades Central's exact align-
ment was unclear as of press time.
The Raiders had a perfect season
with eight straight wins and despite
being ranked second on thefSHAA
Web site behind Cardinal Gibbons,
who the Raiders defeated easily in
the regular season, should have the
championship spot and a home
game against Monsignor Pace Nov.
11. However, we were not able to
confirm that as of press time.

Govenor Bush declares: Hire a veteran


TALLAHASSEE Recogniz-
ing the value of those who have
served our country, Governor
Bush today declared November
2005 "Hire a Veteran Month" in
Florida. The Governor's declara-
tion is part of a nationwide cam-
paign to reaffirm commitment
to those who have served our
nation in times of peace and
war. Coordinated by the U.S.
Department of Labor's Veterans'
Employment and Training Ser-
vice, "Hire a Vet" is designed to
remind employers of the
unmatched economic resource
that veterans offer.
"Florida veterans have con-
sistently and selflessly defended
our nation's security and in the
process have gained valuable
skills, leadership and maturity.
They represent a versatile and
well-trained workforce," said
Governor Bush. "I encourage
Florida businesses to take
advantage of this unmatched
employment resource."
The governor's proclamation
was presented in Jacksonville
today at the Jacksonville Naval
Air Station by Warren R.


"Rocky" McPherson, executive
director of the Florida Depart-
ment of Veterans' Affairs. The
presentation was part of the
Transition Assistance Program
(TAP), a federally administered
reemployment program for sep-
arating ser\ ice members...
"The Transaion Assistance
Program (JAP) provides
employabilty skills training and
other benefits information to
military members and their
spouses in their transition from
military to civilian society," said
Florida Department of Veterans'
Affairs Director, Col. Rocky
McPherson. "Participation in the
program maximizes employ-
ment opportunities for Florida's
veterans, and provides unique
awareness for transitioning mili-
tary personnel regarding the
employment market in our State
and benefits available from
other federal programs."
"Florida's veterans are com-
fortable with new technology
and are skilled and trained in a
variety of areas," said AWI Direc-
tor Susan Pareigis. "We are com-
mitted to bringing employers


and veterans together using our
full network of Employ Florida
partnerships across the state."
On Nov. 7, 2002, President
Bush signed public law to
amend title 38 United States
Code, Jobs for Veterans Act,
with the directive to revise and
improve employment, training
and placement services fur-
nished to veterans.
Florida is home to 1.9 million
veterans and has the fastest
growing veterans population in
the nation.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation is the lead state work-
force agency and directly admin-
isters the state's Labor Market Sta-
tistics program, Unemployment
Compensation, Early Learning
and various workforce develop-
ment programs. The Office of
Early Learning, a division within
the agency, provides oversight of
Florida's school readiness pro-
grams and is the lead entity for
implementing the state's Volun-
tary Prekindergarten program.
Created in 1989, the Florida
Department of Veterans' Affairs
provides advocacy and repre-


sentation for Florida's veterans
in all state and federal veterans
matters, and operates the state
veterans' nursing home pro-
gram providing assisted living
and long term healthcare with
750 beds in six locations around
the state.

Seminole Tribe hosts rodeo

Thank God that's over!
Gas lines like the ones that followed Hurricane Wilma were reminiscent of the 1970s, with
the exception that this area was not under a gas shortage more so than a power shortage.


Martinez to congressional leaders


WASHINGTON, DC U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL) called
on congressional leaders to sub-
stantially include Florida in the hur-
ricane-related tax relief and hurri-
cane supplemental bills currently
being drafted in Congress. Senator
Martinez also called on House
leaders to quickly approve his Sen-
ate-passed disaster relief measure,
S.939 The Debris Removal Act of
2005.
"Florida was hit; we were hit
hard. We need relief," said Senator
Martinez. "Parts of Florida are in
need of temporary housing, other
parts are in need of help in clearing
the enormous amounts of debris.
Just because CNN isn't covering us
anymore doesn't mean the dam-
age is repaired."
The Senate Finance Committee
is currently considering.a multi-bil-
lion dollar tax relief plan for Katri-
na and Rita. In a letter to the chair-
man and ranking member of the


Senate Finance Committee, sena-
tors Martinez and Bill Nelson
urged Florida's inclusion in hous-
ing-related tax relief:
"Specifically, your legislation
creates new exemptions and limits
for mortgage revenue bonds,
which are used by local govern-
ments to provide low interest
mortgages to low- and middle-
income homebuyers. We would
ask that you extend this aid to
Floridians."
In addition, Senator Martinez
and U.S. Representative Mark
Foley (R-16) are circulating a letter
to House Leadership urging swift
passage of S.939 The Debris
Removal Act of 2005, before the
end of the Congressional session
this year. S. 939, sponsored by
Senator Martinez in the Senate and
Congressman Foley in the House,
passed the Senate last week and is
awaiting action in the House. The
measure requires the Secretary of


Homeland Security, acting through
FEMA, to pay an eligible disaster
relief applicant at least 50 percent
of the federal share of assistance
for which the applicant is eligible
within 60 days after the applicant
files a claim for such assistance.
After several tours of hurricane-
damaged areas of Florida this
week, Senator Martinez also noted
that the agricultural sector alone is
going to need several years to
return to normal production yields
and will need considerable help
from the federal government. Mar-
tinez is working on a comprehen-
sive agricultural relief bill to help
the recovery of Florida's citrus,
sugar and nursery industries.
"The financial impact of eight
named storms in fourteen months
on agriculture is astonishing. Fair-
ness and necessity dictates that
Florida must be substantially
included in the next relief pack-
age," Martinez said.


BRIGHTON If you love
rodeo this is the annual event
you really don't want to miss.
There's a lot at stake for cow-
boys and cowgirls competing in
the South East Circuit Finals
'Showdown of Champions'
Rodeo at Brighton Seminole
Reservation Nov. 11-13. Only the
top 12 cowboys and cowgirls in
each standing are qualified to
enter the circuit finals.
The best riders in the Profes-
sional Rodeo Cowboy Associa-
tion (PRCA) circuit from nine
southeastern states challenge
broncs, bulls and the stopwatch
for the circuit championship, a
purse of over $50,000 dollars.
They also challenge each other
for the ultimate right to repre-
sent the circuit at the $100,000
dollar Dodge National Circuit
Finals. Only two winners cap-
ture this honor and grab the
horns of rodeo fame.
The rodeo competitors come
from Alabama, Arkansas, Flori-
da, Georgia, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Missouri, Missis-
sippi and Tennessee.
For the rodeo fan, the Show-
down is one of the most exciting
and toughest competitions of
the year, the action is fast and
furious, and male adrenalin is at
its peak among these highly
skilled circuit cowboys.
The finals also showcase the
most focused women riders in
the circuit as they compete in
barrel riding with unparalleled
speed, precision and control.
In addition, the South East
Circuit Finals features the top
rodeo clowns, bullfighters, and
announcers in their circuit, chbo-
sen by the cowboys themselves,
all of who compete in their spe-
cial class at Nationals.


The three-day rodeo at
Brighton Seminole Reservation
features bronc riding, bulldog-
ging, team roping, calf roping,
barrel racing and bull riding. It
starts at 7.p.m. on Friday, Nov.
11, Saturday at 3 p.m. and 2 p.m.
on Sunday.
As a bonus, the Seminole
Tribe of Florida is presenting spe-
cial pre-rodeo entertainment at

Indian dancing. Food and bever-

Storm-water treatment area open


CLEWISTON Through a
partnership with Hendry-Glades
Audubon, the South Florida Water
Management District will offer to
the public escorted birding tours at
Storm-water Treatment Area 5
(STA-5) south of Clewiston in east-
ern Hendry County. The first trip is
scheduled Saturday, Nov. 12 at STA-
5 from 8:30 a.m. to noon and sub-
sequent tours are scheduled regu-
larly through April 2006.
The storm-water treatment
areas, owned and operated by the
South Florida Water Management
District, are vast, constructed wet-


lands that use vegetation to natu-
rally cleanse excess nutrients from
water before it enters the Ever-
glades. These remote, shallow-
water marshes attract many
species of nesting wading birds,
migratory and other waterfowl
such as great blue herons, wood
storks, snowy egrets, great egrets
and roseate spoonbills.
Tours are open to anyone, but
participants must register to
reserve a space on the trips..
To sign up for the STA-5 Birding
Tour: Send an e-mail to Margaret
England, at sta5birding@earth-


link.net with your name and con-
tact information, the date you want
to go, and the number in your
party. You may also leave a mes-
sage at (863) 674-0695 or (863)
517-0202.
Directions: Go east of the city of
Clewiston on Highway 27. Look for
Evercane Road (CR 835) and the J
& J Ag. Products sign. Continue
south on CR'835 for about 91U2
miles to Blumberg Rd (at the sec-
ond bend in the road). Turn left
onto Blumberg and continue
another nine miles to the STA-5
turnoff (dirt road). Go south for 2


1 U2 miles on the dirt road to the
STA 5 entrance gate. Park before
the gate in the area to the right.
STA5 Birding Tour Schedule
(subject to change):
2005: Nov. 12, Nov. 26, Dec. 10,
Dec. 24
2006: Jan. 7, Jan. 21, Feb. 4, Feb.
18, March 4, March 18, April 8, April
22
Reminders: Take sunscreen,
water, snacks, hats and wear
closed-toe shoes. Tour-participants
must stay on the levee. There is no
age minimum for the trips.


Wilma whacks those Washingtonias


Gardeners are amazed at the
power of the storms that keep
affecting our Florida Yards. In my
travels over the past week, I've
noticed that broadleaf trees and
pines continue to show catastroph-
ic effects from extreme winds,
while palm trees are surprisingly
resilient when it comes to devastat-
ing hurricane winds.
However, I do have a palm can-
didate to add to the "do not plant"
list for our area. And it was brought
to my attention by two other pro-
fessionals, our own Livestock
Agent Pat Hogue and former Mar-
tin County Agent Carol Bailey. Pat
mentioned the he saw quite a
number of palms that were broken
off by the winds south of Lake
Okeechobee. And, Carol asked me
if I was seeing as many broken
windblown palms in our area as
she was seeing in Stuart.
After taking a critical look
around the area, I'd offer an esti-
mate that at least ten percent of the
taller Mexican Washington Palms
found in our area snapped off in
the storms.
Now before I completely anger
those nurseries that are growing
these palms and frustrate home-
owners that still have them planted


in their yard, let me introduce this
palm, its attributes and its culture.
While two different Washing-
ton Palms are natives of Mexico
and southern California, only one
is grown here in Florida. The Mexi-
can Washington Palm (Washingto-
nia robusta) is sometimes called
the Hat Palm or Mexican Fan Palm.
Since their fan shaped leaves grow
on leaf stalks that are armed with
fairly large spikes, this palm is
called an "armored" palm.
Washingtonias are among the
most popular plants used in new
landscapes. The reason why they,
are often used in Florida Yards is
because they are inexpensive, easy
to grow, will increase in height rap-
idly, and are easy to transplant.
They have good salt resistance and
drought tolerance; in fact, growing
them on the dry side after getting
them established is a good thing.
Washington palms are hardy down
to about 20/4F, but the foliage will
be damaged at that temperature.
For best looks, this palm should
be grown in groups. Commercial
and industrial sites can-provide the
right proportions for this dryland
tropical specimen. However, even
though local nurseries often have
Washingtonias available for home-


owners, this is NOT a good palm
for residential landscapes and
small yards.
The idea of having a towering
giant of a plant with a brown, dead
skirt in the landscape is a bit daunt-
ing. The old leaves do hang on and
are a fire hazard. In California
towns, local laws may require that
the dead brown fronds be
removed to reduce nesting places
for unwanted wildlife and as a fire
protection method. For property
owners, it will be hard to remove
old leaves on trees over 30 feet tall.
One source calls this palm the
Skyduster Palm for good reason: it
is the tallest palm that can be found
growing in our area this Washing-
tonia can stretch upwards to 70 or
100 feet in height. Their height also
makes Washingtonias natural light-
ing rods: lighting will often blast
these palms long before they reach
mature size. So, the tall mature
height is another reason to avoid
this palm.
The best reason not to plant this
palm is because it has a brittle
trunk that is now apparent by the
number of broken stems from
'recent high winds. Take a drive
around the area and count the
number of Washingtonias broken


by Wilma. In many cases, these
broken palms were. planted in
areas where winds could push on
them from several different direc-
tions; in other cases, winds pushed
them over and banged them
against buildings or other land-
scape features. I've taken quite a
few photos that show what has
happened to this palm after recent
hurricanes.
And if the costs of removal and
roof repair don't scare you away
from this palm, consider this: there
have been a few reports of the
Washingtonia reseeding itself in
natural areas, making this an exotic
invasive plant. While it will never
outrun the notorious Brazilian Pep-.
per tree or Tropical Soda Apple for
weediness, this is another reason
why Wilma may be doing us a
favor by breaking the back of these
southern California skyscrapers.
So as you plan how to make use
of the new open spaces in your
Florida Yard, remember to include
palms to give you that much need-
ed taste of the tropics. Consider
going native, as Mother Nature has
produced many beautiful plants
that have adapted themselves to
the dynamic climatic conditions of
the Sunshine state.

Everglades Federal

Credit Union pitching in


CLEWISTON In the
wake of Hurricane Wilma,
more and more of our resi-
dents are being forced from
the remains of their homes
due to the extreme damage
done by this powerful storm.
John Boy Auditorium is still
being used as temporary shel-
ter for some of these families.
Some lost everything in the
storm.
Everglades Federal Credit
Union has donated a tremen-
dous amount of money to buy
clothing to ensure that the
children in the shelter are
being provided with what they
need in order to attend school
and for the infants, who are as
young as two weeks old, to
have new clothes and sup-


plies. They have made two
donations that have provided
new clothes for around 60
children, and are continuing
their efforts to provide for the
children at the shelter.
Everglades' Federal Credit
Union would like 'to thank
Wal-Mart for their cooperation
in this effort and the Excep-
tional Student Education
department of the Hendry
County Schools for their assis-
tance in making this effort so
successful.
Shown in the picture are
several employees of Ever-
glades Federal Credit Union
and two of the children that
have received new clothes as
part of this clothes drive.

yard

Edward L. Ayen has been
appointed to introduce the
Florida Yards & Neighbor-
hoods (FY&N) program in the
Okeechobee region, which
includes Highlands, Okee-
chobee and Glades Counties.
The Okeechobee region is

of problems with regard to
lake and ground water quality
and natural resource degrada-
tion. The FY&N program will
initiate programs that will
educate participants as to the
importance of natural
resource protection through.
responsible lawn manage-
ment.
The core FY&N programs
will target homeowners, gar-
den center personnel and
landscape professionals, with
recruitment of neighbor-
hoods, yards and businesses.
This will be accomplished
by distribution of information,
training and utilization of vol-
unteer groups and a yard cer-
tification program.
Organizations cooperating
with the FY&N program are:
University of Florida (UF)
Department of Environmental
Horticulture, UF Cooperative
Extension Service, county and
municipal governments,
Florida Lakewatch, Water
Management Districts, UF
multi-county Sea Grant Pro-
gram, and public utility com-
panies within the three coun-
ty area.
Mr. Ayen is available to
address interested groups
such as homeowners associa-
tions, voluntary organizations
and clubs. For further infor-
mation he can be reached by
calling the Highlands County
Extension Service office.

Burning yard debris can be hazardous


After a hurricane, many peo-
ple are busy cutting, sawing, rak-
ing and picking up yard debris.
Burning of collected yard debris
is discouraged.
The smoke from burning yard
debris can be dangerous to your
health due to the release of tox-
ins. Some trees and shrubs such
as the oleander are poisonous.
Other trees, such as mango and
citrus trees may cause severe
reactions to those with allergies.
Poison ivy is extremely irritating
to the skin and can be life threat-
ening when inhaled from the
fumes of burning yard trash.
The smoke of burning poison
ivy is as potent as the plant itself.
Inhaling the smoke can produce
a whole body reaction. This


could include serious, even fatal,
lung inflammation. Poison ivy
should never be burned. Anyone
who inhales the fumes from
burning poison ivy should quick-
ly seek medical care. Also, poison
ivy toxins can vaporize in smoke
and return to the ground when
cooled. This could result in a sur-
prise case of poison ivy.
Poison ivy is identified by its
leaf; consisting of three, pointed
leaflets, usually shiny in appear-
ance. Leaves are green in spring
and summer. The leaves may
turn yellow, and then red, in fall
and winter. They have light col-
ored berries. Poison ivy can be
found as an erect shrub; a trailing
shrub along the ground; or a
vine, usually seen growing on


trees.
There are three methods of
getting rid of poison ivy. One:
pulling by hand. Two: cutting the
vine and then treating the new
growth with a weed killer. Three:
applying a weed killer to all the
leaves.
The blisters and rash caused
by poison ivy is the direct result of
contact with the oily toxicant
called "urushiol". It is found
throughout all the parts of the
poison ivy plant. Once urushiol is
released and finds its way onto
skin, it can be spread by touching
other parts of the body. This
sticky, oily substance can be indi-
rectly spread from pet fur, garden
gloves, tools, clothing and other
objects. It is not spread from con-


tact with the blisters on the skin.
If-a person is known to have
touched poison ivy, take these
steps. This will reduce the severi-
ty of the symptoms. Wash the
area as soon as possible with
soap and cold water. Warm water
may cause the toxin to soak into
the skin faster. Most people devel-
op symptoms within 24-48 hours.
The first symptom is severe
itching. Later,. red swelling and
blistering occurs. In severe cases,
oozing sores develop. Some-
times, infection occurs when blis-
ters pop and germs enter. Relief
may be found in over the counter
drugs such as Caladryl, Cortaid,
Benadryl and Aveeno Oatmeal
Bath. One home remedy is to
apply whole milk to the affected


areas. If an infection is suspected,
medical help should be sought.
While cleaning your yards of
plant debris, remember to wear
protective clothing. Wear closed-
toed shoes, long sleeves, gloves
and eye protection, to prevent skin
contact or injury. Yard debris
should be placed at roadside for
pickup, separate from regular
trash. Do not mix with other dam-
aged home items such as alu-
minum, shingles, screening, insula-
tion, etc.
Clothing and tools used for
cleanup should be washed to pre-
vent poison ivy exposure. Pets
should remain away from yard
debris to prevent poison ivy from
getting on their fur.


Harris supports federal housing reform act


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) announced her support
for the Federal Housing Finance
Reform Act of 2005 (H.R. 1461).
The legislation responds to recent
corporate mismanagement of
Government Sponsored Enterpris-
es (GSE) by creating a world-class
regulator and establishing strong
safety and soundness require-
ments to prevent future problems.
The legislation also creates an
affordable housing fund and offers
opportunities for those displaced
by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
"The Federal Housing Finance
Reform Act is a key step to ensure
the dream of homeownership is
available to all Americans," said
Congresswoman Harris. "This leg-
islation takes necessary steps to


restore accountability by creating
the powers to strengthen oversight
while allowing GSEs to continue
their positive work of building
homeownership."
"Additionally, I am pleased to
support opportunities to provide
affordable housing not only to
low-income families and first-time
homebuyers, but also to the vic-
tims left homeless in the wake of
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita," Har-
ris concluded.
The Federal Housing Finance
Reform Act consolidates Govern-
ment Sponsored Enterprises
(GSE) regulations and provides the
tools needed to oversee large
financial institutions like Fannie
Mae, Freddie Mac, and Federal
Home Loan Banks. The legislation
allows the GSE regulator to estab-


lish prudential standards on man-
agement, interest rate risk expo-
sure, and other operational issues.
The Federal Housing Finance
Reform Act of 2005 will:
Create a world-class regula-
tor with strong safety and sound-
ness, and control to oversee hous-
ing GSEs;
Merge the regulator of Fannie
Mae and Freddie Mac the Office
of Federal Housing Enterprise
Oversight (OFHEO) and the regu-
lator of the Federal Home Loan
Banks the Federal Housing
Finance Board (FHFB) into a new
independent agency, funded by
assessments on the GSEs;
Organize the Federal Housing
Finance Agency (FHFA), headed
by a director who will be appoint-
ed by the President and confirmed


by the Senate with an advisory
board including the DOT, HUD,
and two nongovernmental mem-
bers;
Give the FHFA director bank
regulator-like powers.
The Federal Housing Reform
Act also establishes an affordable
housing fund, which will finance
housing construction for qualify-
ing low-income families and first-
time homebuyers. Additionally,
the legislation aims to provide
relief for those in need. For the first
two years, the fund will offer assis-
tance to victims left homeless by
Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Safe-
guards will prohibit recipients
from using available funds for pur-
poses other than home construc-
tion.
Congresswoman Harris has a


long history of creating affordable
housing opportunities. Harris
authored the American Dream
Downpayment Act, which was
signed into law in 2003. Earlier this
year Harris sponsored an amend-
ment that successfully restored
$60 million in funding to the HOPE
VI grant program. Additionally,
Harris introduced the Housing
Affordability for Teachers and Pub-
lic Officers Act of 2005 which
would provide a one percent
down payment for teachers and
public officers.
Harris is a member of the Com-
mittee on Financial Services and
serves on the Capital Markets,
Insurance, and Government Spon-
sored Enterprises Subcommittee
and the Housing and Community
Opportunity Subcommittee.


Attorney general, state attorney file Wilma price gouging case


MIAMI Attorney General
Charlie Crist and Miami-Dade
State Attorney Katherine Fernan-
dez Rundle has sued a Miami-
Dade County man who allegedly
'violated Florida's price gouging
law by selling generators for
grossly inflated prices while South
Floridians were without power in
the wake of Hurricane Wilma.
The lawsuit alleges that David
Medina sold generators off the
back of a truck on a south Miami-


Dade street corner for prices
unconscionably higher than what
the generators usually cost. Sell-
ing essential commodities for
unconscionable prices during a
hurricane emergency is a viola-
tion of Florida statutes.
"Hurricane Wilma caused
death and destruction across
South Florida, the results of
which are still all too evident,"
said Crist. "People are trying des-
perately to return their lives to
f-


normal. They have been victim-
ized once, and we are deter-
mined to ensure they are not vic-
timized a second time by
profiteers."
"Price gouging is one of the
most callous acts undertaken
while a community is suffering. In
the wake of the tragedies that hur-
ricanes always bring, no one
should have the opportunity to so
coldly exploit their neighbors.
This court action is meant to take


the profit out of price gouging
while restoring civility to our dam-
aged community," said Rundle.
As Wilma struck Florida, Med-
ina, of Miami Beach, traveled to
North Carolina and bought 35
generators at a Costco store 11
larger models costing $529.99
each and 24 smaller ones costing
$279.99 each. He returned to
Florida and started selling the
generators at the corner of Coral
Way and S.W. 87th Avenue,


advertising with a homemade
sign placed on the truck.
Medina did not have an occu-
pational license to sell the genera-
tors.
Medina allegedly sold the larg-
er generators for $900 each, a 70
percent markup, and the smaller
ones for $600, a 114 percent
markup. Most of the generators
had been sold before investiga-
tors with the Attorney General's
Office spotted the operation.
