Agencies offer relief, funds


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The ongoing
recovery efforts following Hurri-
cane Wilma have begun to shift
gears, with the immediate needs
of temporary roof repairs, emer-
gency medical supplies, and tem-
porary shelters having been largely
addressed, although there are cer-
tainly still pressing needs in some
areas.
However, now that most resi-
dents have been able to clean up


inside and outside their homes,
and water is no longer pouring
through their ceilings, a lot of folks
are turning their attention to get-
ting their homes and businesses
back into a state of permanent
restoration.
Federal and state agencies have
arrived on the scene in the Glades
area to help homeowners and
business owners with the process
of cleaning up, rebuilding, and
repairing their properties.
These agencies are offering

relief, largely in the form of mone-
tary distributions by the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA), the U.S. Small Business
Administration (SBA), and the
state of Florida's Bridge Loan Pro-
gram, among others.
The paramount delivery of
assistance to those who qualify
was a presentation of $2 million to
be used for Bridge Loans in
Clewiston and Moore Haven. The
funds were presented to represen-
tatives from the community at Big

CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Sheriff's sub-office in
Clewiston was heavily damaged
during Hurricane Wilma, caus-
ing major water intrusion and
extensive damage to equipment

have been set up at temporary
quarters in the former building

Rotary hosts Rep Grimsley


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Florida
House Representative Denise
Grimsley visited the Clewiston
Country Club on Monday, Nov.
14, where the Clewiston Rotary
Club hosted the newly elected
representative.
Rep. Grimsley, who repre-
sents the citizens of House Dis-
trict 77 in the State of Florida
House of Representatives in Tal-
lahassee, offered thanks for the
opportunity to serve the region of
and around Clewiston.
Speaking at the regular lunch-
eon meeting of the Rotary Club,
Rep. Grimsley outlined her per-
sonal series of legislative bills that
were passed byboth houses.
"As my first legislative session,
it was both a learning opportuni-
ty and the chance to get right to
work sponsoring legislation of


concern to the people of District
77," said Rep. Grimsley.
Bills that Rep. Grimsley has
sponsored include Citrus Canker
Eradication, "The Kelsey Ryan
Act", Sweepstakes promotions,
and Unlicensed Home Health-
care Agencies, all of which were
passed by both House and Sen-
ate bodies and signed into law by
Governor Jeb Bush.
The representative has visited
Clewiston at least three times
since Hurricane Wilma blew
through the city on Oct. 24.
Rep. Grimsley accompanied
U.S. Representative Mark Foley
and Florida Lt. Governor Toni
Jennings on an inspection tour of
the city on Oct. 25, and again
came to visit citizens on Oct. 31
when Governor Bush came to
Clewiston.
Rep. Grimsley has stayed busy
in her first legislative session,


dealing with hurricane recovery
efforts and establishing helpful
legislation for the region of Dis-
trict 77.
The Citrus Canker Eradication
bill authorizes the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture to continue
current procedures for citrus
canker eradication. Rep. Grims-
ley was the primary sponsor of
thatbill.
The representative also spon-
sored the Kelsey Ryan Act, which
allows students prone to severe
allergic reactions to self-adminis-
ter epinephrine by auto-injec-
tion. According to Rep. Grimsley,
the bill will ensure a better sys-
tem of safety and potentially save
lives.
Sweepstakes promotions
were the subject of a bill that
"conforms Florida's advertising

In the Military


Dora D. Mapp
Navy Seaman Apprentice Dora
D. Mapp, niece of Rebecca Mapp
of Port St. Lucie, Fla., and sister of
Mary D. Mapp of Belle Glade, Fla.,
was recently promoted to her cur-
rent rank upon graduation from
recruit training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, 11l.
Mapp received the early pro-
motion for outstanding perform-
ance during all phases of the
training cycle. Training which
included classroom study and
practical instruction on naval cus-
toms, first aid, firefighting, water
safety and survival, and shipboard
and aircraft safety. An emphasis
was also placed on physical fit-


ness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This
exercise gives recruits the skills
and confidence they need to suc-
ceed in the fleet. "Battle Stations"
is designed to galvanize the basic
warrior attributes of sacrifice,
dedication, teamwork and
endurance in each recruit
through the practical application
of basic Navy skills and the core
values of Honor, Courage and
Commitment. Its distinctly
"Navy" flavor was designed to
take into account what it means
to be a Sailor.
Mapp is a 2005 graduate of
Glades Central Community High
School of Belle Glade, Fla.

Pet of the Week winner


Stories abound about cats who have used up many of
their nine lives and after Larry's harrowing tale of sur-
vival following being trapped in a sugarcane field when it
was being burned, you have to wonder if there is a sep-
aration of myth and fact in the nine lives theory. Larry has
full recovered from his burns and additional trauma
inflicted upon him and if there was ever a pet that need-
ed a day of pampering, it is Larry. Larry is this week's Pet
of the Week winner and has earned a day at Doc Savvy's
Animal Clinic's pet spa in Belle Glade. Larry is the pet of
Wayne and Jan Boswell and Doc Savvy can be reached

your pet, submit them to myoung@newszap.com for a
chance to win your pet a day at the spa.


Attorney general joins


with state attorney


MIAMI Attorney General
Charlie Crist and Miami-Dade State
Attorney Katherine Fernandez Run-
die sued a Miami-Dade County
Sman who allegedly violated Flori-
da's price gouging law by selling
generators for grossly inflated
prices while South Floridians were
without power in the wake of Hur-
ricane Wilma.
SThe 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. Selling
Essential commodities for uncon-
'scionable prices during a hurricane
emergency is a violation of Florida
statutes.
S"Hurricane Wilma caused death
'and destruction across South Flori-
.da, the results of which are still all
too evident," said Crist. "People are
trying desperately to return their
"lives to normal. They have been vic-
.timized once, and we are deter-


mined to ensure they are not victim-
ized a second time by profiteers."
State Attorney Rundle couldn't
agree more with Attorney General
Crist.
"Price gouging is one of the
most callous acts undertaken while
a community is suffering. In the
wake of the tragedies that hurri-
canes 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 damaged communi-
ty," said Rundle.
As Wilma struck Florida, Medi-
na, of Miami Beach, traveled to
North Carolina and bought 35 gen-
erators 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.


But they're
still not yams!
With the Thanksgiving season
upon us, Sweet Potatoes are dis-
played more prominently in area
grocery stores. And I am happy to
see that most merchants correctly
label them: Sweet Potato (two
words, capital S, capital P). Alas,
some people continue to call them
"yams".
Sweet Potatoes and yams are
two completely different plants.
Yams are front the plant family
Dioscoreaceae. Sweet Potatoes are
from the plant family Convolvu-
laceae and are related to Morning
Glory plants.
Sweet Potatoes are prehistoric
plants. Yams, somewhat younger
but still quite old, are traced to
50,000 B.C.
With the Sweet Potato plant, the
edible part is the storage root. The
edible part of the yam is the tuber.
Sweet Potatoes have a smooth, thin
skin. Yams have a rough, scaly skin.
Sweet Potatoes are moist with a
sweet flavor. Yams are drier and
more starchy than sweet.
Nutritionally, starchy yams just
can't compare to Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet Potatoes are one of nature's
"super vegetables," high in Vitamin
A and Vitamin C. Sweet Potatoes
also contain calcium, iron and thi-
amine and are rich in fiber.
Sweet Potatoes, which are
native to North America, are grown
in many parts of the United States,
including California and the Caroli-
nas. Yams originated in Africa are
imported from the Caribbean.
So how did these very different
plants become confused in Ameri-
can grocery stores? There are many
varieties of Sweet Potatoes. There
are many varieties of Sweet Pota-
toes and they come in different
colors. The first Sweet Potatoes
commercially marketed in this
country did not have the bright
orange flesh we are now accus-
tomed to. To distinguish the orange
Sweet Potatoes from their paler
cousins, a marketing executive
came up with the idea to call them


A
Healthierf
Life \


with Katrina Elsken


"American Yams," and the name
stuck. The United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture specifies that
labels on any produce marketed as
"American Yams" must also con-
tain the words "Sweet Potatoes,"
on the label.
Whatever you call them, Sweet
Potatoes are a wonderful, naturally
sweet source of nutrition. A four-
ounce serving contains only about
150 calories, but is packed with
twice the recommended daily
allowance of Vitamin A. Some
nutritionists have suggested that a
meal that contains Sweet Potatoes
and Broccoli is not only colorful but
also well balanced nutritionally.
Sweet Potatoes can be eaten
baked, boiled or steamed. Some
people enjoy them plain, or with a
little cinnamon. Others want the
traditional Sweet Potato casserole,
garnished with pecans and marsh-
mallows. Sweet Potatoes can be
substituted for pumpkin Sweet
Potato pie tastes very much like
pumpkin pie.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hey! My
name is Dan and I have great pets. I
have a Golden Retriever dog
named Groucho, and three cats
named Huey, Duey and Luey. They
all get along wonderfully. They
sleep together, play together, and
even eat together. As much as it
seems that Groucho loves cats,
why does he want to chase cats
with a vengeance when we are out
for a walk? Thanks Doc, we love
your radio show! Dan and Melissa
Carter in Clewiston.
A: Well hey to you Dan! Okay,
there is nothing really too technical
about this one. It is more like an
observation, and an opinion. Dogs
that grow up with cats almost
always get along pretty well. In
your case, they are extremely well
adjusted. Good job on your part by
the way! General rule of thought for
a dog is that they consider the cats
at home to be family. Cats outside
are considered, well, food I guess?
There is a code that most dogs
adhere to, "It's okay to attack the
cat across the street but, you simply
don't eat family." Yes Dan, even
some things are strictly taboo for
man's best friend. Take care, Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Since the
Garlic Festival is coming up soon, I
thought I'd get your take on an
urban legend. Is it true that garlic
kills fleas and gets rid of worms for
dogs? Thanks Doc, Kate in Delray.
A: Ha! You know, I grew up
hearing that from my Auntie in
London. She used to give her dog

Doc Savvy


Freddie garlic pills all the time.
From what I have heard, garlic
claims to kill fleas, get rid of worms,
lower your blood pressure, and
cholesterol, as well as keep vam-
pires away. Now, what are the
facts? Garlic does in fact lower your
blood pressure and cholesterol. It
also acts as a blood cleanser, which
is how it lowers cholesterol. Being
that it is a cleanser, it also increases
they need for going, you know, pot-
tie! So, it does in fact help to elimi-
nate worms, but doesn't rid the sit-
uation. Hmmmm, garlic festival? I
hope they. have plenty of port-o-
potties out there! Yikes! Hope that
answers your question Kate. Best
wishes, Doc Savvy.

Letters to the Editor


Wilma
Letter to the editor:
The aftermath of a disaster like
Wilma tends to bring complaints
to the forefront.
I have no complaints only
Kudos to:
Our city officials
Our city employees, especial-
ly the Police and Utilities depart-
ments.
Whoever was responsible for'
our disaster preparedness plan.
Volunteers who manned the
shelters and other locations.
Sub-contractors who helped
to restore power and clear debris.
Gas stations that had genera-
tor power (none gouged us)
Neighbors who helped each
other.
It seemed to me that as soon as
the wind slacked off, the city elec-
tric department began to restore
power, the city water and sewer
department had generators on
most lift stations, streets were
being cleared and the police
began to patrol our streets on a
regular basis.
In a short time, traffic lights
were operational, and the city was
picking up garbage and removing
debris with the help of Ridgdill &
Sons (dump trucks), Everglades
Tree Service (equipment and
employees), and other contrac-
tors.
The city electric department
was assisted by at least six different
city electrical departments.
I am amazed by the response
and coordination of all involved in
our recovery.
Those responsible for plan-
ning, coordinating and executing
the recovery deserve a special,
"Thank You", from all of us. I relate
a typical, "Unsung Hero" story: My
wife (a public health department
nurse) was at John Boy Auditori-
um during Wilma, told me of a
police officer who had been on
duty for 72 hours and was not able
to check on his family or home or
bathe or change clothes for three
days. He is just one of the many
who served us tirelessly under try-
ing circumstances.
In the Palm Beach Post (11-2-
05) in the city by city report:
Belle Glade: 40 percent without
power.
Canal Point: 100 percent with-
out power.
Pahokee: 75 percent without
power.
South Bay: 60 percent without
power.
Clewiston: 100 percent with
power!
I believe that Clewiston is far
ahead of any city affected by
Wilma. If anyone has any com-
plaint: I quote Archie Bunker, "Sti-
fle"! Count your blessings.

place."
Last year, Hope Hospice helped
to meet the medical, emotional,
social and spiritual needs of more
than 4,000 patients and their fami-
lies in southwest Florida. Our
patients range in age from new--
born to more than 100 years old,
with any type of life-limiting illness.
As an example of our efforts to
anticipate and meet every need,
when we recently cared for a new-
born, one of our art therapists cre-
ated a beautifully designed print of
the baby's hands and feet, as a
treasured remembrance for the
parents. In another instance, a
woman in one of our Hope Hos-
pice Houses wanted to see her
daughter get married but was
unable to travel. On very short
notice, our care team arranged a
beautiful wedding in our own
chapel, led by one of our chap-
lains.
In 2004, we served well over
half of everyone who was facing
end-of-life issues. Although that
figure is much higher than the
national average, we cannot rest
until everyone becomes aware of
the help available at this critical
time.
An important part of our work
involves helping people and other
healthcare professionals to under-
stand the value of hospice care
services to patients and families.
Hope uses an interdisciplinary
team of health care professionals
and specially trained volunteers to
provide pain management, symp-
tom control, psychosocial support,
and spiritual care to patients and
their families. The earlier that a
person at the end of life is referred
to hospice, the more we can help
in relieving their pain, easing their
emotional stress, and helping the
family to cope. There are many
who are not yet aware of this, and
they wait unnecessarily before
seeking care.
Fortunately, we are seeing
more and more people in our
community looking for informa-
tion about care at the end-of-life
and advance care planning, well
before they are faced with a health
crisis. Hope is a resource for any-
one in need of information about
care options and ways to make
sure their wishes are met should
they face a serious or life-limiting
illness.
Hope is working to make
southwest Florida a better place by
offering our services to everyone
in need, and serving as a resource
for making informed decisions
about end-of-life care. Raising
everyone's awareness of how we
can help is our goal during Nation-
al Hospice Month.

President and CEO, Hope of
Southwest Florida


Awareness of end-of-life Shame on Ray Judah


care services
Dear editor:
In proclaiming November
National Hospice Month, Presi-
dent Bush said, "The compassion
reflected in hospice care is one of
the reasons America has the best
health care system in the world. By
taking the time to care for others,
they are making America a better


To the editor:
Shame on Ray Judah for trying
to take advantage of a natural dis-
aster to advance his own political
agenda. Everybody knows that he
is gearing up to run for another
office, hence the political grand-
standing. The truth is that South
and Central Florida have weath-
ered an unprecedented series of
hurricanes and heavy rains for the


past two years, and all that water
has taken its toll on Lake Okee-
chobee, the estuaries on both
coasts, the Everglades and millions
of people in South Florida. It is
unbelievable, that in the wake of
the terrible flooding and devasta-
tion from Hurricanes Katrina, Rita
and Wilma, that any public official
would be so callous as to call for
more flooding of our already flood-
ed and damaged farms and com-
munities instead of trying to fix the
system. Hundreds of our employ-
ees lost their homes, streets and
fields were flooded, and the state's
sugarcane crop has been substan-
tially damaged with early sugar
industry estimates of Wilma's
impact in the hundreds of millions
of dollars with damages to crop,
facilities and critical infrastructure.
We still have entire farms that we
can't get into because they are
underwater.
In a ten-day span, our fields
near Clewiston were inundated
with 6-12 inches of rain. This killed
thousands of acres of newly plant-
ed cane, damaged the harvest-
ready cane, and delayed harvest
and planting activities. The wet,
twisted and damaged cane stalks
will slow harvest activities and
greatly increase the cost of harvest
as well as lower the quality of the
raw sugar. It will be a long, long
time before things return to 'busi-
ness as usual' in the agricultural
area. However, it is a credit to the
hard work and dedication of our
employees that we have been able
to resume harvest and processing
activities, providing vital jobs for
our workforce. While it has its
obvious flaws, the flood control
system that we have did protect
most people and property from
the disastrous flooding that New
Orleans suffered.
However, the system is what it
is, and until the CERP projects and
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District's accelerated proj-
ects to help Lake Okeechobee and
the estuaries are built, it doesn't
make sense to try to push one
area's problems off on another. In
the midst of a crisis situation, Lee
County Commissioner Ray Judah
is trying to throw other people out
of the life raft just so he can get a
better seat for himself.
Robert Coker,
Senior Vice President, Public
Affairs.

Veterans Day Op-ed
Dear editor:
As we. pay tribute to our armed
forces past and present this Veter-
ans Day, I am reminded about the
value of freedom in this great
country. We owe a debt of grati-
tude to the brave soldiers who
have fought for our safety and
security and have given us the priv-
ilege to live in a free land. This day
takes on additional significance, as
we support and reflect on the
deployed troops in Iraq,
Afghanistan, and elsewhere
throughout the world.
Though officially recognized as
Veterans Day in 1954, November
11th was originally recognized at
the conclusion of World War I in
1918 as the day that ended "the
war of all wars." Since then,
November 11th has rightly


become a day of remembrance
and tribute to all uniformed indi-
viduals who have fought in the
name of America in the name of
life, liberty and the pursuit of hap-
piness.
After the attacks on September
11, 2001, I sat with President Bush
at the Cabinet Room table as we
discussed what was to follow. It
was that day we truly realized that
our freedom and future safety
were at stake, and direct action
was required. Our courageous
military willingly accepted the call-
to-action, and still today they con-
tinue to persevere under harsh cir-
cumstances.
In response to the needs of
these men and women that risk
their lives each day and our veter-
ans from throughout the country,
President Bush and this Congress
have supported the greatest
increases in veterans spending and
benefits in our history. Today we
are spending more money then
ever before on veterans' care,
increasing their health care bene-
fits by 47-percent over the past five
years.
Even so, there is still more to be
done. Since taking office, I have
joined my Senate colleagues on a
number of measures important to
improving services for veterans
and military retires, including
major improvements in health
care services. In the 2006'Budget
Resolution, we rightly set aside a
full $70 billion for the Department
of Veterans Affairs almost half
of this amount specifically desig-
nated for the Veterans Health
Administration.
Not only are we focused on
improving veterans' healthcare,
but I also joined my colleagues to
co-sponsor the Senate Retired Pay
Restoration Act (S. 558). This legis-
lation would allow military retirees
to receive full concurrent receipt of
both deserved-disability compen-
sation and retirement pay, regard-
less of the disability rating. In addi-
tion, individuals who have retired
or separated from military service
due to a service-connected disabil-
ity would be eligible for concur-
rent receipt of veterans' disability
compensation and either military
retired pay or combat-related spe-
cial pay. This will be effective Janu-
ary 1,2006.
Another important issue for vet-
erans and their families is survivor
benefits. By passing the Military
Survivors Benefit Equity Act (S.
185), we can repeal the reduction
of military survivor .benefit Jay,
(SBP) annuities for survivors;
.receivingdependency and indem-
nity compensation (DIC).
Teddy Roosevelt once said, "A'
man who is good enough to shed
his blood for his country, is good;
enough to be given a square deal
afterwards." In that same vein, I
too believe we must come togeth-,:
er as a nation to commemorate
and reward the sacrifice of our
men and women that have fiercely
protected our freedom. On this
Veterans Day, I commend our ded-
icated veterans for their sacrifices
to our nation, and I want to reaf-
firm my commitment to protecting
our veterans for many years to
come. God bless.
Senator Martinez


Fishes and snakes; bread and stones; and now Wilma


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
People asked us what we want-
ed when I was first married. We
needed awasher and dryer to com-
plete the things.needed to get our
household
underway, but
we got a silver
tea set instead.
The church
decided to give
us a gift a tea
set with. a silver
tray and silver
creamer and
sugar bowl, Rev. Samuel S.
and two hurri- Thomas
cane lamps,
and a silver coffee pot. It didn't
help. Then someone found out that
my mother had a store and they
asked for all the gifts back so that
they could get them engraved.
Nothing went back, and everything
went to the store two churches
later. We got our washer and dyer
and it was something that was
wanted and useful. For all of the
time we kept it, I don't ever recall
using the silver set.
I remember hearing comments
about eternal polishing it would
take and how quickly it seemed to
tarnish. We kept it out of sight -
polishing all of those was a long
operation. Lately, I've been seeing
trucks loaded and people standing
in line for whatever came out of
them. I've seen lots of bottles of
water, but we haven't been under a
"boil water" warning for some
time. I've seen lots of canned
goods. Someone asked if I could
use some canned goods for our
food pantry and I said yes.
Their homes were severely
damaged and they need clothes
and funds to help with what insur-
ance doesn't cover, but they've got
lots of canned goods instead.


Recently, as I was helping a
donor unload a trailer, our needy
received cases of aspirins. I
thought that this was a bit ironic -
the headaches people have are not
likely to be relieved by aspirins. We
also got lots of beans on that ship-
ment nothing.to go with them,
but lots of beans. As I watch what
is given, I often wonder just what
goes through the minds of some
givers. I credit many of them with
meaning well, but wonder just
what they have thought about the
needy they're intending to help.
The question was raised in the
Bible, too. The Lord puts forth a
question to teach those who listen
to him, "Which of you, if his son
asks for bread, will give him a
stone? Or if he asked for a fish will
give him a snake?" (Matthew 7:10)
Jesus goes on to say that even
weak or "evil" people know how
to give good gifts to their children,
and how much more will God
reward us when we ask for His
good gifts. In the meantime, I have
been grateful for those who ask,
"What do you need?" and then
seeing that what we need is what
is given. That's a special kind of
charity it bears something of
the real caring of the giver and is
something that is not wasted or
not really wanted anyway.
I have found that question,
"What do you need?" also helps
the receiver of gifts it causes
them to reflect on what it is that is
really needed and not something
that is just wanted for the moment.
Sometimes what is needed is
beyond the capacity of the giver to
give that's all right. Sometimes
surplus or unwanted items will be
gratefully received and used by
others, but other times not. Some-
times the receiver ministers to the
giver by graciously accepting
something that is totally useless to
them or something not really
wanted in the first place.


, That's one of those cases when
there is truly more joy in the heart
of the giver than the receive -
and not in the Biblical sense!
Every now and then, it comes
out right. I don't think that is an
accident, it is due to the care and
concern, true care and concern of
those who want to help, and the
S V AN


honesty and humility of those
who are willing to receive. There:
is that reminder that we know
how to really give and really
receive and God bless it. It is a
foreshadowing of what God does
for us too giving what is needed
and offering with a grateful, cheer-
ful heart.

Important FEMA


update: Take care


We encourage all of those
affected by Hurricane Wilma to
beware of scam artists the last
thing anyone wants is for disaster
victims to become fraud victims.
That said, contrary to what
some media outlets have report-
ed, not all inspectors will be wear-
ing blue FEMA shirts this is a
team effort and there are inspec-
tors from other Federal Agencies
(such as the Small Business
Administration) as well as private


contractors who work for FEMA.
The best way to ensure that an
inspector is legit is not to judge by
appearances whether they are
wearing blue shirts but rather
to ask for identification.
All contractors, FEMA inspec-
tors, and inspectors from other
government agencies who are
going into impacted communities
to help will have a photo ID and
an ID number. Before letting
inspectors in, ask for ID.

Governor Bush unveils $3.1 billion


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush unveiled more than $3
billion in transportation improve-
ments as part of Florida's sweeping
growth management reforms
signed into law last June. The "pay-
as-you-grow" proposal overhauled
the state's growth management
laws for the first time in two
decades to ensure roads, schools
and water are available to meet the
needs of Florida's growing com-
munities. The transportation fund-
ing will be used to relieve a backlog
of road projects and improve major
transportation corridors across the
state.
"Investing in our transportation
system is vital to Florida's econom-
ic prosperity and our high quality of
life," said Governor Bush. "These
crucial transportation projects will
benefit Florida's citizens, visitors?
and businesses by moving people
and goods more efficiently."
The $3.1 billion in transporta-
tion improvements includes $2.8
billion in state money and $351 mil-
lion in public and private partner
funding to enhance the Strategic
Intermodal System (SIS). A
statewide network of high-priority
transportation facilities, the SIS
makes up the core of Florida's
transportation system and includes
the state's largest and most signifi-
cant commercial service airports,
spaceport, deepwater seaports,
freight rail terminals, passenger rail
and intercity bus terminals, rail cor-
ridors, waterways and highways.
"The department's three top pri-
orities are safety, maintenance and
mobility," said Florida Department
of Transportation Secretary Denver
Stutler. 'Accelerating our invest-
ment in road and transportation
projects will improve the quality of
life of millions of Floridians while
strengthening our growing econo-
my."
Projects planned for the next
five budget cycles will be presented
during public hearings on the
Department of Transportation's
proposed work program this fall.
SIS projects selected for funding
must be consistent with adopted
local government comprehensive
plans and link to growth manage-
ment objectives in the new law.
Projects must also relieve a backlog
of transportation needs, provide
improved alternatives for moving
goods or support mobility within
designated multimodal districts
and urban infill, redevelopment.
and revitalization areas.
.In addition, $52 million of Coun-
ty Incentive Grant Program and
Small County Outreach Program
projects were placed in the depart-
ment's work program in partner-
ship with counties this year to
improve roadways, safety and
transportation facilities.

ee Bridge to SR 20: Advance acqui-
sition of right of way for future con-
struction of a four-lane facility.
With hundreds of new residents
moving to Florida daily, the state's
population is projected to top more
than 20 million by 2025. The "pay-
as-you-grow" system bases deci-
sions about new development on
the ability of Florida's communities
to provide adequate infrastructure.
Under the plan, comprehensive
plans now require a budget and
timeline to address the backlog of
infrastructure along with the
increased demands of new devel-
opment. Florida's,strong economy
has generated funds to help
address the state's future trans-
portation needs along with the
backlog of infrastructure. The new
law will generate $7.5 billion to
address transportation backlogs
and future needs over the next
decade.

Hello again! After thankfully sur-
viving terrible hurricane Wilma, I
think maybe I can start to get back
to some kind of normalcy, and I
sure hope you can too. I'm going to
start by saying let's talk art!
There's a hot new French word,
giclee, being used in the art world
today. It's not really a new word,
but it is hot! Giclee, giclee, giclee,
pronounced "zhee-clay". So, what
is giclee? A giclee is just about as
close as you can get to an original
piece of artwork.
When this printing process is
done with handmade collabora-
tions between the artist and a quali-
fied printer, these image reproduc-
tions become a unique work of art
in their own right.
One reason for this great new
fascination with the giclees is
because only recently the ink
industry has 'developed lightfast
inks making the giclees more
viable as permanent pieces of art,
and they can be printed on canvas.
An artist today can make a giclee
that is very difficult to discern from
the original painting.


I fiiiiU]T


Producers who used Monsanto
ROUNDUP-READYT seeds
may have a claim for losses,
Farmers allege decreased
production even when used as
instructed. Promises made
should be promises kept!
Call us for info and insight.


I started using giclee a few years
ago. It really wasn't everywhere at
that time. The popular artist
Thomas Kincaid was really among
the first to jump on that bandwag-
on. He, would hand paint on the
giclees giving them texture and
additional enhancement of color.
Then he would add an original sig-
nature to boot, making them even
more valuable.
Like'Kincaid's giclees and other
high quality giclees, my giclees are
hand painted for enhancement and
have my original signature. Amaz-
ingly, a giclee can be made in most
any size that a patron desires, and
the price of a small one usually
starts around $300.
Giclees are a great way for an art
lover to have some beautiful art-
work, even if their budget can't
stand the price of thousands for an
original piece of fine art.
I don't have my giclee or
mural work up on my Web site
at this time, but I would like to
take this opportunity to invite
you to visit my site at (mem-
bers.aol.com/atyler38/home.html).

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

Senate to boost Florida sex-offender laws


WASHINGTON, D.C. A key
House-Senate budget panel set
aside $2 million to help pay for
Florida's new program to moni-
tor convicted child sex predators
after they get out of prison.
The Florida Department of
Corrections would be able to
use the money to help imple-
ment the state's Jessica
Lunsford Act, a new law requir-
ing closer monitoring of convict-
ed sex-offenders. The money
would pay for GPS satellite
tracking devices, helping the
state keep an eye on these crimi-
nals after they are released from
prison.
Florida's senior U.S. Sen. Bill
Nelson included the money in
an appropriations bill that, in
part, funds the federal Depart-
ment of Justice. Nelson's provi-
sion was approved by House
and Senate budget negotiators
late Monday. The full House and
Senate are expected to approve
the broader spending bill within
a week.
"I'm glad we can help Florida
better protect children from con-
victed sex-offenders," Nelson
said, after passage of his provi-
sion. "And I believe there's more
we can do and that's to pass
federal legislation providing
grants to states that pass laws to
track these dangerous offend-
ers."
Just such a plan giving the
states a shot at grants for sex-
offender monitoring is pending
in the full Senate. Last month,
the Senate Judiciary Committee
approved an anti-crime bill by


Sens. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and 'And I believe there's more we can do and
Joe Biden (D-DE) that strength-
ens federal laws governing the that's to pass federal legislation providing grants

Alico initiates new internal accounting controls


Submitted to INI/Sofia Kirstein
Westside Elementary 5th grade students with the sled dogs.


LABELLE The Manage-
ment of Alico, Inc. has conclud-
ed that a material weakness
existed in the Company's inter-
nal control over financial report-
ing as of August 31, 2005. This
material weakness resulted from
a shortage of qualified financial
reporting personnel with suffi-
cient depth, skills, and experi-
ence to manage the increased
responsibilities required under
the Sarbanes Oxley Act of 2002
and continue to maintain
records in accordance with gen-
erally accepted accounting prin-
ciples ("GAAP") in the United
States of America. Specifically,
monitoring controls to ensure
journal entries are posted accu-
rately and in a timely fashion
were ineffective during the
fourth quarter of fiscal 2005 clos-
ing process. This resulted in a
missed elimination entry to


The company concludes that there existed a
material weakness in internal control over
reporting which it does not believe has impacted
any previously filed financial statements and
which it intends to correct.


intercompany accounts and an
incorrect entry to deferred
income taxes and other compre-
hensive income. Although the
missed or incorrect entries were
not prevented or detected by the
Company's existing system of
internal controls, the entries
were corrected and will be prop-
erly reflected in the fiscal 2005
year end financial statements.
Although the Company does
not believe that the material
weakness identified impacted
any previously filed financial
statements, the existence of a


material weakness or weakness-
es is an indication that there is
more than a remote likelihood
that a material misstatement of
the Company's financial state-
ments will not be prevented or
detected in a future period.
Subsequent to the year ended
August 31, 2005, the Company
added a qualified and experi-
enced financial reporting man-
ager in the Accounting Depart-
ment to ensure that it has
sufficient depth, skills, and expe-
rience within the department to
prepare its financial statements


and disclosures in accordance
with GAAP. Management will
continue to evaluate the
progress and abilities of
accounting personnel in order to
assess whether the weakness
has been effectively remediated.
The Company also plans to
enhance and strengthen its writ-
ten accounting and reporting
policies pertaining to the elimi-
nation of inter-company bal-
ances and will train employees
with respect to the new policies.
While the remediation measures
are expected to improve the
design and effectiveness of the
Company's internal control over
financial reporting, the controls
have not yet operated effectively
for a sufficient period of time to
demonstrate operating effective-
ness. Management is committed
to correcting this material weak-
ness.


SThere was lot of howling
going on at Westside Elementary
;this last week, as the Fifth grade
students got a chance to come
face to face with an animal not
often seen here in sunny Florida!
The classes of Mrs. Chamblee,
.Mrs. Kirstein, Mrs. Johnson and
Mrs. Larrimore had read litera-
ture in their classes about the
famous Alaskan dogsled race,
The Iditarod. To conclude the
reading, Clewiston residents,
Bruce and Maria Wells brought
their Alaskan Malamutes and
racing/pulling equipment to
SWestside. The children marveled
as they learned that a malamute
can pull up to 3,000 pounds and
has endless endurance. Mrs.
Wells, dressed in traditional
dogsled "musher" attire, had her
dogs.model the harnesses, and
equipment' used in races and
work assignments. Maverick and
SHunter sat still as each student
delighted in their soft fur and the
even temperament of the 100-
plus pound dogs. All of the stu-
dents agreed that this experience
really made literature come
alive!

Lake Okeechobee area hurt by hurricane


By MaryAnn Morris
WEST PALM BEACH The
Lake Okeechobee area is still reel-
ing from the effects of Hurricane
Wilma.
Susan Gray, Executive Direc-
tor, Okeechobee Division of
SFWMD reported on conditions
in the Lake Okeechobee Division
of the District to the Water
Resources Advisory Commission
(WRAC) at their meeting held
Thursday, Nov.3 at the South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD) headquarters in West
Palm Beach.
Along with Ms. Gray's report
on Thursday, other commission
members had information to
share. A subsequent telephone
press conference Friday, Nov. 4
added more details.
"There is extensive damage to
farm worker's housing and our
buildings, particularly for sugar
storage are badly damaged,"
reported Judy Sanchez of U.S.
Sugar in Clewiston.
"We will begin the sugar cane
harvest next week," said Barbara
Miedema of the Sugar Cane
Grower's Association. "It will be a
reduced harvest, but the cane has
dried out and is starting to stand
back up."
"We are working to repair the
areas of the Herbert Hoover Dike
eroded by the sieches during the
hurricane," reported Dennis Duke
of the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (Corps). (Seiches are long
period, shallow waves, which typ-
ically develop in bays, coves,
lakes or harbors. They can be ini-
tiated by sudden pressure
changes, or the arrival of a storm
surge.)
"The contract for the first
phase of the dike rehabilitation
project has been awarded," he
said. At the request of commis-
sion chairman Mike Collins, Mr.
Duke will have a full report on the
Herbert Hoover Dike for next
month's WRAC meeting.
"When you see close up pic-
tures of the erosion, particularly
with a person in the photo for
scale, it looks pretty dramatic,"
said Dean Powell, Deputy Director
of Watershed Management for
SFWMD on Friday. "From the air,


you see there is a lot of dike left."
Corps representative Cindy
Foley pointed out Friday that the
dike is about 300 feet wide at the
base, and the erosion that took
place was not a threat to the over-
all integrity of the dike.
"There was never any threat to
life or property by the erosion that
occurred," said Steve Duba, PE.,
Chief of the Engineering Division
for the Jacksonville District of the
Crops.
Issues of water supply were
discussed in light of pending large
land developments in the Kissim-
mee Basin, particularly the Bab-
cock Ranch project.
"There is no science that we
have seen that tells us how much
water will or will not be available
on the Babcock property," said
WRAC Chairman Mike Collins.
The potential increase in surface
water runoff and phosphorus
loading due to increased fertilizer
tse associated with land develop-
ment was discussed.
"We hope to see a revision in
environmental resource permit
requirements to require a reduc-
tion of 25 percent to 50 percent in
phosphorus runoff rather than
the no increase that exists under
current requirements," said
Chairman Collins.
Ms. Gray's report, Executive
Director of the Okeechobee Divi-
sion echoed like matters. "The
Governing Board is looking at the
installation and funding of for-
ward pumps in tandem with a
recession in the Water Supply and
Environment (WSE)", she report-
ed. "We are also looking at mov-
ing water north to the Indian
Prairie Basin, a traditionally
water-poor area.
"As a result of over 10 inches of
rain dumped by Hurricane
Wilma, the Kissimmee chain of
lakes rose to 16.94. That is above
where it should be. The rise in
those lakes has stopped now, but
it has not yet begun to drop," said
Ms. Gray. "We are discharging,
water from Lake Okeechobee: At
Structure S-80 into the St. Lucie
River, 3,500 cfs, S-77 at the
Caloosahatchee River, 6,500 cfs
and at S-79, 10,319 cfs. Rain fell
on the lake, around the lake and
north of the lake. We have had a


tropical weather system affect the
area every month of the wet sea-
son this year. At S-65, the gates on
the Kissimmee River at Lake
Okeechobee, 8,000 cfs is coming
into the lake. Before the storm is
was 600 cfs," she continued.
"Hurricane Wilma stirred up sedi-
ment in the lake, enough to clog
intake screens of city utilities.
Water analysis tests are done,
SFWMD is waiting for the results."
At the Special Governing
Board meeting Wednesday, Nov
2, board member Irela Bague,
after a flight over Lake Okee-
chobee commented, "I saw the
lake after last year's hurricanes
and it looked like chocolate milk,
this year it looks like black cof-
fee."
Monitoring of water quality in
the lake has been increased with
runoff continuing to pour in. The
lake water is cloudy and the level
is high. This will slow the recov-
ery of the plants, which help
clean the water. When light does
not penetrate down through the
water, the submerged plants do
not grow.
"We had 12 inches of the wet
season total of 41.9 inches of rain-
fall with Hurricane Wilma, said
Ms. Gray. "The sieches were not
as bad with Wilma as they were
last year with Hurricanes Frances
and Jeanne, but the water level in
the lake was higher to begin with.
We had hoped to be able to have
a recession, a lowering of the lake
water level to 12 feet, but that was
when the lake level was around
15 feet. Now it is two feet higher,
over 17 feet and we're looking at
having to wait a year to begin the
recession."
"There is much damage to the
Storm Water Treatment Areas
STAs. Because of area damage,
like downed power lines some
areas are inaccessible. It will be a
month before we get the full pic-
ture," reported Tracey Piccone,
P.E. Lead Environmental engineer
for SFWMD. "But it appears that
the STAs planted with a mixture
of different plants, much like
nature faired better than those
with only submerged vegetation.
Since the total phosphorus to be
removed was based on sub-
merged vegetation, the matter


Wilma victims eligible for disaster


will have to be reviewed."
The storm water treatment
areas are areas built to store
excess water and have been
planted with vegetation to take up
excess phosphorus before drain-
ing the water into the Everglades
to the south. Since the storm
dumped so much water, all STAs
are in flow-through; opera-
tion, meaning water is not being
held, but is allowed to run
through as a flood control meas-
ure. These areas are also for recre-
ation such as duck hunting and
provide habitat for wildlife. High
water in the storm-water treat-
ment areas jeopardizes not only
their ability to reduce phospho-
rus, but habitat and recreation
activities as well.
"From the air, you see the
extent of the destruction: Trailers
and RVs blown up onto the levee
and into the control structures,
the line of vegetation up on the
side of the levee; cloudy brown
water in shallow areas where you
can usually see the bottom," said
Mr. Powell. "We are pushing
debris out onto the levee to dry
with tow boats. Those are boats
with a sort of front-end loader on
the front of them. When it's dry
we'll haul it out."
"Since the hurricane and
through the months of recovery,
SFWMD staff is working alternat-
ing 12-hour shifts to deal with all
the problems associated with the
widespread damage,", said Chip
Merriman, Deputy Executive
Director of SFWMD. "Understand,
that is regardless of people's own
home situation."

"With its severely limited tax
base, the county sheriff's office has
been forced to provide dispatch
services to all police, fire and EMS
with equipment that is both outdat-
ed and constantly in need of.repair
and replacement. The county cur-
rently has numerous 'dead spots'
where police, fire and EMS radios
cannot send or receive messages.
This was an extremely difficult
problem to have during the hurri-

continue the event in the coming

make the trip this year, some prob-

left by Hurricane Wilma. The Oct.

seven days, and many students
have lost their homes and have
been forced to live at shelters while
they attend school.

planned to take place in January.
"We've been very much
blessed to be able to change our
airfare and hotel reservations, with
no fees," said Capt. Petersen.
Fundraisers held by the Criminal
Justice students include a pet-
grooming event called "Spruce

urday on Bond Street from 9 a.m. to
2p.m.
Other fundraisers include a
chicken barbecue, originally sched-
uled for Oct. 28. Tickets for that
event will be redeemable at Spruce

Rep. Grimsley said that the
upcoming issues to.be addressed
at legislative sessions will include
an array of issues, including major
concerns to District 77 such as
growth issues, tort reform, citizen's
insurance, and the Jessica Lunds-

"There is an approaching
growth explosion that will very like-
ly involve this district," said Rep.

that will come up as a result will be

up 25 percent of a budget, and

Gators power down Chargers 66-7 in playoff action


By Mark Young

BELLE GLADE If the nick-
name Chargers represent a
power source, the Glades Day
Gators did to the Shorecrest
Chargers what Hurricane Wilma
did to the Glades in creating a
massive power outage.
And it only took four and a half
minutes for the Gators to begin
unplugging the Chargers who up
to this point of the season had
posted some fairly impressive
offensive numbers, but had not
faced a quality team like the
Gators throughout the course of
their regular season.
The Gator defense has.played
some impressive football this
year and the Nov. 11 first round
playoff game against the Charg-
ers \was -no exception as the
Gators.putthe Chargers three and
out on their first possession after
Shorecrest began on their eight-
yard line with a failed reverse on
the kick off.
The Gators made them pay
and aftei-ashort punt, Glade Day
took the field on the Charger 34-
yard line-and nine second later
look the earl\ lead when Frank
Lugo broke il open for 34 yard of
pai dirt on the opening offensive
pla\ for the Gators. Freshman
kicker Dustin Anaya, who was
perfect on the night with nine
extra points and a 26-yard field
-goal, drilled the point after for a
Gator 7-0 lead with 9:54 left in the
first quarter.
The Gators would score a cou-
ple of minutes later when the
Chargers took the field on their
own 11-yard line and were driven
back to the one-yard line by an
aggressive Gator defense. The
Gators penetrated on the punt
attempt to get a hand on the ball
and Karl Charles picked up the'


"The defense dominated and the offense was a
machine. Everybody played and everybody con-
tributed."
Craig Dobson,
Glades Day head football coach


INI/MarK Young
Gator supporters were decked out in the green and gold of their playoff football team and
had plenty to cheer and dance about as the Gators ticked off a 66-7 victory over the
Shorecrest Prep Chargers Nov. 11 at Gator field.


loose ball and trotted into the end-
zone from nine yard out. Anaya
extended the Gator advantage to
14-0 with the extra point with 7:32
still left in the first quarter.
The Chargers managed a cou-
ple of first downs on their next
possession, including converting
on fake punt, but coughed the
ball up to Glades Day's Travis
Auwaerter two plays later on the
fumble and the Gators resumed
their offense from the Charger 48-
yard line. A 22-yard completion
from Josh McGregor to Andrew
Boccanfuso highlighted the six-
play drive, which was capped off
by a four-yard run from Lugo.
The Gators jumped out to a 21-0
lead with 2:14 left in the first
quarter.
The Charger offense was dis-
patched fairly quickly on their
next possession, turning the ball


over to the Gators on their own
45-yard line. Lugo gobbled up 33
yards on the first play and a
Charger personal foul set the ball
up on the Charger seven-yard
line. McGregor found Boccanfuso
for six of the yards and Lugo
scored his third touchdown of the
game in giving the Gators a 28-0
lead with 11:49 left in the second
quarter.
The Chargers were on the field
for one play before Ismael
Ceniceros fell on a Charger fum-
ble on the Charger 38-yard line
and one play later, McGregor
threw a perfect strike to Boccan-
fuso for the score. Anaya contin-
ued his perfect streak for the
point after and the Gators had a
quick 35-0 lead with 8:58 left in
the half.
The Chargers crossed into
Gator territory for the first time in


the ball game on their next pos-
session and threatened to find the
endzone, but Danny Burack
picked off the Charger pass and
returned it 95 yards for the score,
but it would be called back on a
penalty. The pick stood, however,
and the Gators began another
offensive trek to the endzone
from their own 35-yard line.
A combination of pass and
run plays, with some penalty help
thrown into the mix saw Lugo
score for the fourth time, this one
from 12 yards out to put the
Gators up 42-0 with 2:01 left in
the half.
The Chargers wanted to put
something on the scoreboard
before the first half closed, but
Kyle Williams picked off a Charg-
er pass and returned it 35 yards
for the score, but this one too


would be called back on a penal-
ty. The Gators took over on their
own 20-yard line and looked to
run the clock out with a run up
the middle, but Lugo found 80
yards of open real estate and
scampered his way down the
field for the score.
The Gators opened up a 49-0
lead at the break.
Glades Day received the sec-
ond half kick and less than two
minutes later found the endzone
once again when McGregor hit
Andrew Joseph for a 35-yard
touchdown. Joseph hauled in
about a 10-yard pass and found
the endzone with some excep-
tional open field running as the
Gators took a 56-0 lead with
10:18 left in the third quarter.
The Chargers faced a younger
set of Gator defensive players
when they took the field for their
next possession and put together
a sustained drive to the Gator
one-yard line, but it would stop
there. Stacy Workman picked up
a Charger fumble on the one-yard
line and raced down the sidelines
for a 99-yard score to give the
Gators 63-0 lead.
Anaya would add his 26-yard
field goal late in the third quarter
to round out the Gator scoring at
66 points. With a running clock,
the Chargers managed to avoid
the shutout with seconds remain-
ing in the game despite a valiant
goal line stand attempt by the
Gators who were looking to pre-


serve the shutout. But the Charg-
ers did score, much to the delight
of their loyal fans who made the
long trip from St. Petersburg to
support their squad and the game
ended with a 66-7 Gator victory.
"We rolled boys," said Gator
head coach Craig Dobson. "The
defense dominated and the
offense was like a machine.
Everybody played and everybody
.contributed. We had great prac-
tices last week and it transitioned
over to game time."
The Gators put together an all
around team performance with
their usual stubborn defense
forcing five turnovers and offense
who 237 yards on the ground and
130 yards in the air. The Gators'
one concern' coming into this
game was special teams, but
those issues have turned to dust
with a stellar performance with
great coverage on kick offs and
had one punt blocked with a
return for a touchdown and the
kicking game for the Gators was
perfect.
The Gators will now face the
task of heading to Ft. Meade to
play a team that they have never
beaten. Ft. Meade defeated Evan-
gelical 21-14 despite a bold pre-
diction from Evangelical's head
coach that they would, "crush Ft.
Meade."
That didn't happen, so the
Gators will take their show on the
road and Ft. Meade may not
know what's coming for them.


Gary and Jenkins carry Devils to Regional Semi-Final Win


Blue Devils defeat
Miramar-Parkway
Academy 35 to 14
By Nina G. Wils

The Pahokee Blue Devils are
on the road to a third consecutive
-class 2B State title after playing
Miramar-Parkway Academy on
'Nov. 11 in Broward County for'
the Regional Semi-Final. It was
the first game for the Devils in
two weeks due to Hurricane
Wilma. The team was rusty and
had some kinks to work out, but
over all the Devils' defense and
super star players Ricky Gary and
Janoris Jenkins carried the team
to victory.
On Pahokee's opening drive,
Ricky Gary scampered 15 yards
on a loss-si~ ep play. Quarter-
back Robert Lo'. e hit Martavious
dorns for a -41--yard gain and
vith the ball on the Panthers 24-
'yard line, Love threw to tight end
Un'lavious.Scott who made a
di' ng, catch at the five-yard line.
iGar s coied the Blue Devils' fitst
touchdown with a filie-\aid un
to the left, but the point after was
blocked.
The Parkway Panthers were
forced to punt on their first pos-
session o1 tihe gare giving Paho-
kee the ball at their own 25-yard
line. Running back Janoris Jenk-
ins had a 2'0-ard run compli-
nmented \\ilh a personal foul
called on the Panthers that added
15 more yards to the play. Full
back Anthony Atwell ran straight
up the middle to the five-yard line
giving the Devils another first and
goal. Pahokee was called for a
false start a penalty that would
occur several more times in the
game Following a sack by the
Panthers, the De)tls faced a
seemingly impossible third and
goal from the 2Ii-\lard line. On a

The Devils made several mistakes that could
have been costly, but their speed and strenght
were too much for the Panthers.


and a quick grab by Odoms, the
Devils had a first and goal at the
one-yard line. Love scored on a
quarterback keeper. Jenkins
scored the two-point conversion.
To end the first half, Pahokee lead
21-8 and forced three turnovers
(Gary returned to the game and
had two interceptions). But the
Devils had three turnovers of their
own and several costly penalties.
The Panthers went to a no-
huddle offense to the start the
second half and worked their
way to mid-field. Cheves put a
hard hit on Spell and forced a
fumble. Cornerback Nikita White
scooped up the free ball and
raced 52 yards for a Devils touch-
down. The Devils now led 27-8.
The Devils defense continued to
pressure Jennings. He was
sacked by Jenkins and defensive
end Scott. Facing a fourth and
seven and down by 19 points, the
Panthers opted to go for it, but
were stopped short by the
defense. Pahokee punted on their
next possession. Love overthrew
his receivers several times in the
game, but the receivers also
dropped some passes.
With nine minutes to go in the
fourth quarter, Love handed the
ball to Jenkins who gained 40
yards on the play. His quick feet


and swift moves eluded several
Panther defenders. Gary also had
strong runs and gained 35 yards
on a fourth and one play. Gary
walked into the end zone for a
touchdown on the next play from
scrimmage.
On a fake extra point attempt,
Love rolled to his right and hit
Un'Tavious Scott for the two-
point conversion, and Pahokee
extended their lead over Parkway
35-8 with six minutes to go in the
game.
Jenkins intercepted his third
ball of the night. The coaches
sent the second string team into
the ball game to get some snaps.
In the final minute of the game,
Panthers running back Jason


Porter on a 10-yard gain. Jenkins
powered his way down to the
three-yard line. With a first and
goal, the Blue Devils looked to
extend their lead. Love, though,
fumbled the ball on a disastrous
exchange to his running back. The
Panthers recovered the fumble at
their own 10-yard line. Gary was
hurt on this Pahokee drive and sat
out for several minutes.
Panthers running back Spell
had two huge runs that took the
Panthers to mid-field. Although
Jennings was pressured by the
linebackers, he was able to con-
nect with wide out Devin Parrish
on a 35-yard catch. Parrish caught
the ball in double coverage and
fought to keep his feet in bounds.
Jennings' next pass was tipped
by Tamarcus Porter and landed
into the hands of a Panthers
receiver and McKinney scored a
15-yard -touchdown. The two-
point conversion was good. In
the middle of the second quarter,
the game was tight as Pahokee's
lead was cut 13-8.
Pahokee's next two offensive
possessions resulted in a fumble
and an interception. The Devils
were rusty on the offensive front,
but were able to put together a
third scoring drive before half-
time. With power runs by Jenkins

The Glades Central Raiders did
well in their regional quarterfinal
game against Miami Pace last
week, keeping that winning streak
alive well into the postseason. The
Raiders sought revenge during the
game, playing against the team it
lost to last year in the playoffs -
and securing a decisive victory this
year to even the score.
The Raiders capped the game
with a 26-17 win against Pace.
The Raiders have so far
amassed an impressive season this
year, going undefeated and with an
eye on clenching the champi-
onship title before the year is out.
First-year Coach Willie Snead,
responding to expectations of the
community for the team, early on
forecasted sharpening the overall
ability of the team by concentrating
on the basics a tactic that has

paid off well.
In each game, it is the show-
stopping offense that has been just
too much for competing teams to
overcome, made up of Raider sen-
ior running back Aston Samuels,
whose running game is a perfect
match for quarterback Bryan
Mann's pinpoint precision.
Against Miami Pace, the duo led
the team to the win, and catapulted
the Raiders closer to that coveted
championship title. Aston Samuel's
159 yards off of 22 carries cou-
pled with touchdowns early in the
game and in the third quarter -
and Mann's 16 passes for 103 yards
.and one touchdown, helped the
team rally from a nine-point deficit.
Mann also carried the ball into the
end zone in the fourth quarter, on
top of a touchdown by Tarus
McKinley.

Growers face bleak future after Wilma's devastation


By Patty Brant
It didn't take long after Hurri-
cane Wilma's departure for County
Extension Agent Gene McAvoy to
start sloshing through Hendry
County's devastated agricultural
areas, assessing crop damage.
Within days, he'd been through
Hendry County, Immokalee and
Big Cypress checking damages.
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson also took
an aerial tour of Hendry County's
farming community on Wednes-
day, Oct. 26.
What makes Wilma particularly
ruinous is her timing, Mr. McAvoy
commented. Farmers were just a
couple weeks from harvesting
when she hit leaving growers no
time to replant. Last year, hurricane
damage occurred early in the sea-
son, allowing ample time to
"repair" the damage. The local
extension service now is the cen-
tral agricultural center for Hendry,
Glades, Collier, Lee and Charlotte
Counties.
Mr. McAvoy said that 80-90 per-
cent of the area's citrus fruit is on


the ground some 70 percent of
early oranges and about 60 percent
of the later fruit. In addition to the
loss of this harvest, he pointed to
fears that Wilma's high winds
could have spread the blight of cit-
rus canker as it is suspected last
year's hurricanes did.
The immediate losses are phe-
nomenal. One vegetable farmer's
loss is estimated at $2 million his
whole crop. Total losses could run
some $600 million, Mr. McAvoy
stated.
South of Clewiston was the
worst hit area of the county. "It's
unbelievable," he said lines of
power poles snapped off along CR
835, homes and farm buildings flat-
tened; a "beautiful" watermelon
crop twisted into a pile.
He did say the cool weather that
followed the storm was a blessing
because it should help deter dis-
eases from attacking any salvage-
able plants and help the healing
process.
In Immokalee farmers are try-
ing to salvage whatever peppers
and squash they can. Immokalee
suffered some damage to build-
ings, produce loading docks. The


state farmers market is in "bad
shape". Crop damages are similar
to Hendry County, he said.
Hendry's
estimated losses
Sugarcane: no estimate avail-
able
Green beans: 5,000 acres
Tomatoes: 7,000 acres
Peppers: 2,000 acres
Citrus: 400,000 acres of sugar-
cane down


the crop although mills and storage
areas also sustained damage.
Vegetable farmers will also
have a hard time replanting due to
the damages sustained by area
transplant houses. Replanting is a
critical issue, Mr. McAvoy said, that
will impact farmers
recovery. Availability of labor will is
another big issue for growers,
since rebuilding efforts after the
storm siphons them off as tempo-
rary labor.


Bronson tours
Southwest Floridas Alinn In.se
Alcn iA os loses


estimated losses
Tomatoes: 10,000 acres (mainly
in Hendry and Collier with smaller
amounts in Glades, Charlotte and
Lee)
Peppers 5,000 acres
Green beans: 12,000 acres
Cukes and squash: 1,500-2,000
acres
Miscellaneous crops: 3,000-
4,000 acres (42 types of vegetables
are raised locally)
Although sugarcane fields have
been flattened, growers may' be
able to save a substantial portion of


Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles Bronson toured
with Alico CEO John R. Alexander,
Florida District 77 Rep. Denise
Grimsley and Hendry County Com-
missioner Darrell Harris. When
their Department of Forestry heli-
copter touched down at LaBelle
Airport after the tour, Sec. Bron-
son's outlook was grim.
He estimated that 40-80 percent
of the orange crop was on the
ground. He said much of the sugar-
cane harvest was bent over to the


ground. Some may be harvested
immediately, but much will not be
saved. The bush bean crop is virtu-
ally gone, along with sweet corn.
Commissioner Bronson said
U.S. Agriculture Secretary Mike
Johanns has promised to look at
local losses and is considering how
the department can help.
Commissioner Bronson had
toured Homestead's ornamental
harvest earlier where orchids and
bromeliads were devastated. He
had also toured Immokalee, which
shared the same devastation,
though farms there perhaps had
more water. "Its pretty rough out
there," he commented. He saw no
bright spot on the horizon, but
hoped the situation will prove to be
better than it appears.
Rep. Grimsley said that cane is
being harvested immediately.
Since it is normally a six-month
harvest period, very little will be
salvaged. She had previously
toured Clewiston and Glades
County agricultural areas and com-
pared agricultural losses identical
to what DeSoto and Hardee suf-
fered in 2004 after Hurricane Char-
lie swept through. She pointed out


that the area took a double hit eco-
nomically tourism and agricul-
ture. She also expressed a concern
that Wilma could spread citrus
canker, as other hurricanes may
have done. The area had just about
come to grips with canker and is
now facing a new threat called cit-
rus greening, which is.caused by
bacteria Liberibacter asiaticus. It is
carried by a Citrus psyllid (an insect
vector) and attacks the vascular
system of the tree. There are three
forms, Asian, African and Brazilian.
The Florida strain appears to be
Asian.
According to John R. Alexander
CEO Alico lost 250 acres bush
beans, 200 acres of sweet corn and
8,000 acres citrus between Hendry
and Collier counties. He said 80
percent of their early orange crop is
on the ground as well as 25 percent
of their Valencias (harvested in
March). Alico will also have to
rebuild a number of barns blown
apartbyWilma.
Hendry County Commissioner
Darrell Harris was impressed by all
the damage he witnessed. Another
major concern for him was the loss
of jobs in the farming industry.


Hurricane Wilma


ravages sugar


WEST PALM BEACH Hur-
ricane Wilma will cost Florida's
sugar farmers hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars. The full extent of
the damage is still being
assessed.
According to Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles
Bronson, the sugar growing area
was one of the hardest hit by
HurricaneWilma.
After touring the sugar
region, Commissioner Bronson
said that he expected Wilma's
impact to exceed that of the
2004 hurricanes.
Damages to sugar farming
from the 2004 hurricanes
exceeded $370 million. Early


estimates of Wilma's impact on
Florida sugar farmers exceed
$400 million.
Because sugar cane is har-
vested several times from the
same planting, Wilma's damage
will impact next year's crop as
well.
Wilma's winds exceeded 100
mph and twisted and flattened
sugar cane and caused major
structural damage to warehous-
es, refineries, and equipment.
Damaged cane will slow the har-
vest activities and increase costs.
On a positive note, harvesting
has resumed and mills are
beginning to process the dam-
aged sugar cane.


Farm Service agency's county elections begin


GAINESVILLE The election
period for USDA Farm Service
Agency (FSA) county committees
began Nov. 4 and is open through
Dec. 5, 2005, announced Kevin Kel-
ley, Florida FSA State Executive
Director. Ballots to eligible produc-
ers have been mailed.
"It is important that County
Committees represent a cross-sec-
tion of their community, because
they help administer federal farm
programs at the local level," said
Kelley "I encourage all eligible pro-
ducers, especially minorities and
women, to make a difference in
their community by voting in this
year's FSA county committee elec-
tions."
Eligible voters must complete
their ballots and return them to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
FSA county office by the close of
business on Dec. 5. If mailed, bal-
lots must be postmarked by mid-


night Dec. 5. Eligible producers
should contact their local FSA
offices if they do not receive a bal-
lot.
FSA county committees help
ensure FSA agricultural programs
serve the needs of local producers.
County committees provide input
on commodity price support loans
and payments, conservation pro-
grams and disaster assistance.
FSA county committees operate
within official regulations designed
to carry out federal laws. Most
committees consist of three to five


members and nray have one or
more appointed advisors to further
represent the interests of minority
and women farmers and ranchers.
The candidate receiving the
most votes serves a three- year
term as the elected county com-
mittee member. The person receiv-
ing the second most votes serves a
three-year term as the first alter-
nate. The candidate receiving the
third most votes serves as second
alternate for three years.
Approximately one-third of the
nearly 8,000 committee seats


nationwide are up for election
annually. Newly elected committee
members and alternates take office
Jan. 1,2006.
Agricultural producers, who
participate or cooperate in any FSA
program and are of legal voting
age, can vote. A person supervising
and conducting the farming opera-
tions on an entire farm, but not of
legal voting age, can also vote.
Producers can learn more about
FSA county committees by contact-
ing a local FSA office or online at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/pas/.


In the wake of Wilma's destruction


Farm-City Week has
special meaning
TALLAHASSEE The
destruction caused by Hurricane
Wilma has brought into sharp
focus the interdependence of
farmers, consumers and all those
whose efforts make Florida's
agricultural system work. In light
of this, Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson
says this year's observance of
Farm-City Week, November 18-
24, will be especially meaningful.
Every year, Farm-City Week
reminds us all rural and urban
residents alike that we live and
work together in the same envi-
ronment and depend on each
other, Bronson said. In good
times, that interdependence goes
almost unnoticed by many. But,
following a disaster when normal
daily life is drastically disrupted,
we're each reminded just how
much we truly value the contri-
butions of others.
Fall is normally a time of opti-
mism for Florida farmers as they
prepare to harvest their winter
crops to feed the nation. Florida
provides 80 percent of the fresh
vegetables grown in the United
States during January, February
and March of each year.
Hurricane Wilma destroyed
many of Florida's premier winter
crops in the fields and damaged
much of South Florida's agricul-
tural infrastructure, Bronson said.
As a result, many Florida farmers
will miss out on this crucial win-
ter market and some may not
survive this economic blow. In
addition, consumers may find
some Florida fruits and vegeta-
bles in limited supply.
Bronson said Florida's farmers
are once again demonstrating
their resiliency in the wake of dis-
aster as they proceed with
rebuilding and replanting.
"Our state's farmers are work-
ing hard to get back on their feet
after this devastating blow,"
Bronson said.
Soon, grocery shelves will


once again feature the many
Florida products in which con-
sumers depend. Farm-City Week
- started by the National Farm-
City Council and promoted
nationally by the American Farm
Bureau is observed the seven
days leading up to and including
Thanksgiving. Under the theme
Partners in Progress, Farm-City
Week salutes all those who work.
as part of the complex network
that brings food from the field to
the table. These Partners in
Progress include farmers and
ranchers, researchers, proces-
sors, brokers, truckers and ship-
pers, advertisers, wholesalers
and retailers. This network results
in numerous benefits to society
by providing an abundance and
variety of food as well as products
used to make clothing, housing,,
medicines, and countless other
items used daily.


The key is the interdepend-
ence among those who produce
the products, those who con-
sume the products, and all those
in the production and marketing
chain between the producer and
consumer, said Carl Loop, presi-
dent of the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation. These vital farm-city
partnerships with rural and
urban communities working
together have made the most
of our rich agricultural resources,
and they continue to contribute
to our health and well being and
to the strength of our economy.
Florida's 44,000 commercial
farmers grow more than 280 Dif-
ferent crops. Year's ground, Flori-
da ranks No. 2 nationally in the
U.S. production of fresh vegeta-
bles. Florida agriculture has an
estimated overall economic
impact of more than $62 billion
annually.

Tiger win boosts morale, busts Crusaders 33-28


By Bill Fabian and
Jeff Barwick
Since taking a bone-jarring hit
from Hurricane Wilma, the stu-
dents of Clewiston High School
and many Tiger fans in Clewiston
have been in desperate need of
something to lift their spirits since
the hard-hitting storm.
Tiger fans packed the stadium
at Cane Field for the first Clewiston
Tiger football game since Oct. 20.
The game was a nail-biting, action-
packed classic battle against a dis-
ciplined, talented Tampa Catholic
Crusaders squad. The Tigers
fought hard for a victory, and in the
process provided a huge morale
boost for their loyal fan base.
Tiger junior tailback Jamal
Hubert scored three times and
chipped in a key defensive sack at a
critical moment in the final period
to' lead Clewiston to a 33-28
thrilling win over Tampa Catholic
in their Regional Semifinal game
last Friday night at Cane Field.
Hubert scored on runs of three, 19
and 10 yards and led the Tigers on
the night with 162 yards on 24 car-
ries.
His final score came with only
1:11 remaining in the game and
brought the Tigers back from their
first deficit of the night. On the fol-
lowing Crusader series, Hubert
rushed from his defensive end
position and sacked Tampa
Catholic quarterback Dickie Dela-
ma for 13 yards and preserved the
victory.
Clewiston moved the ball on
the ground virtually at will all night
long, racking up 337 yards rushing
on 47 attempts. Backup tailback
Richard Pope contributed 82 rush-
ing yards on eight carries. The
Tigers' two other touchdowns
came on a two-yard smash by full-
back Richard Pope in the first quar-
ter and a two-yard run by quarter-
back John Melton in the second.

Iciara Lyman was crowned the Homecoming Queen of
Clewiston High School at the Tiger football game on Friday,
Nov. 11. First runner up was Alexis Rodriguez, and second
runner up was Christina Morton.


From there on, the scoring was all
Jamal Hubert. But, the Tiger pass-
ing game was ineffective with
Melton getting poor ball catching
support from his receiving corps.
Melton completed only 2-of-7
attempts for a total of only nine
yards but his receivers dropped
several passes that were catchable.
Tampa Catholic played oppor-
tunistic football and took advan-
tage of every Tiger mistake. They
had two long kickoff returns. The
first was by Randy Mosely for 49
yards and the other was 55 yards by
Joey Hernandez. They also were
given solid field position when line-
backer Zack Clifford recovered a
Melton handoff exchange fumble
at the Tiger 28 in the second peri-
od. The Crusaders capitalized on
all three opportunities, scoring a
field goal and two touchdowns.
The Tiger defense was inconsistent
against the run and porous against
the Tampa Catholic's passing


attack. Crusader quarterback Dick-
ie Delama passed at will most of
the night and flanker Joey Lauterie,
who had eight catches for 100
yards, was their leading receiver.
The Crusaders pulled ahead for
the first time midway through the
final quarter when running back
Clarence Gulnyard took an option
pitch from Delama and scooted
nine yards. Kicker Matt Kelly, who
had field goals of 20 and 39 yards
earlier, added the extra point to put
the Crusaders on top, 28-27.
Clewiston could not move the
ball on their next series and was
forced to punt when Melton's punt
went into the end zone for a touch-
back. The Crusaders could not
move the ball as the Tiger pass
defense finally stiffened. Then, the
Tigers got a huge break when the
punt snap sailed over Kelly's head.
Kelly scooped the ball up around
his 10-yard line and managed to get
off a kick but it slipped out of

new life with only two minutes
remaining. Hubert covered the 20
yards with two carries of 10 yards

After the game, a tired but elated
Hubert expressed satisfaction from
the Tiger victory. "We moved the
ball great in the first half and our
line was opening holes. We slowed
down some in the second half but
we got it back together when it
counted." He added, "It feels great
to win our first playoff game but we
got to get more aggressive and play
more as a team."

Louis "Red"


Larson Honored


GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
Louis E. "Red" Larson's long-
time leadership in Florida's
dairy industry is being recog-
nized by his four children who
are establishing three endow-
ments at the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
The $1.5-million gift,
announced Nov. 5 at the Col-
lege of Agricultural and Life
Sciences' annual "Tail Gator"
rally prior to the Florida-Van-
derbilt football game in
Gainesville, has prompted UF
officials to name a building in
Larson's honor. UF's dairy sci-
ence building will now be
known as the L.E. "Red" Lar-
son Dairy Science Building.
In announcing the endow-
ments and building dedication,
Jimmy Cheek, UF senior vice
president for agriculture and
natural resources, thanked the
Larson family for the generous
gift and said it will enhance
teaching, research and exten-
sion programs in dairy science
and the 4-H Youth Develop-
ment Program.
"The Larson children, with
deep roots in Florida agricul-
ture and strong family ties,
have chosen to honor their
dad in a very special way,"
Cheek said. "Red Larson and
his wife, Reda, are the proud
parents of four children -
Woody, Barbara, Kathy and
John who have chosen to
make a significant gift in their
father's honor. Thanks to their
generosity, three separate
endowments are being estab-
lished in UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences."
The sons, John Larson and
Woody Larson, operate their
own dairy farm businesses in
Okeechobee. The daughters,
Kathy Cooley and Barbara Stu-
art, reside in Ocala and Orlan-
do, respectively.
A $300,000 gift will create
an endowment to support
teaching, research and exten-
sion programs, and a
$200,000 gift will create an
endowment to support UF's


"The Larson chil-
dren, with deep roots
in Florida agriculture
and strong family
ties, have chosen to
honor their dad in a
very special way."
Jimmy Cheek,
UF senior vice president


statewide 4-H Youth Develop-
ment Program.
A $1 million gift will create
an endowment to provide
support for the Faculty Chal-
lenge Initiative, which will
provide support for faculty
and students in the animal sci-
ences department.
The initiative, which was
announced last year by UF
President Bernie Machen,
aims to raise $150 million to
meet the demands of educat-
ing Florida's growing popula-
tion and make UF one of the
nation's premier research uni-
versities.
Red Larson, owner and
president of Larson Dairy Inc.
in Okeechobee, Fla., has been
a dairy farmer for more than
57 years. His farm covers
10,000 acres and includes
more than 6,000 cows that
produce 45,000 gallons of
milk daily.
In October, Larson
received the Southeast Farmer
of the Year Award at the annu-
al Lancaster-Sunbelt Expo in
Moultrie, Ga. The southeast
region includes farmers in
Alabama, Florida, Georgia,
Mississippi, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Tennessee
and Virginia. His other honors
include being elected to the
Florida Agricultural Hall of
Fame, Dairy Hall of Fame and
Alumni of Distinction in UF's
College of Agricultural and
Life Sciences, and being
named Dairyman of the Cen-
tury.


Manatee awareness month is important


Manatees are often called one
of the most treasured marine mam-
mals on earth and are considered
by many to be a vital part of Ameri-
ca's natural heritage. For the last
several years, Florida Governor Jeb
Bush has signed a proclamation
naming November as "Manatee
Awareness Month," the time of
year when manatees usually start
returning to Florida's warm water
winter refuges.
"The manatee is Florida's official
marine mammal, a distinctive and
valuable natural resource," reads
the proclamation recently signed by
the governor. Many Floridians enjoy
living in a state where manatees live,
and there are plenty of tourists
around the world who look for-
ward to visiting The Sunshine State
to see these unique creatures.
"Manatee Awareness Month is a
great tradition Florida's governors
have supported year after year,"
says Patrick Rose, Save the Manatee
Club's Director of Government


Relations. "Each year as Florida's
human population grows, it is an
important reminder that we must
watch out for these gentle creatures.
This year, it seems more important
than ever as the U.S. House of Rep-
resentatives recently passed a bill
that will, if passed by the Senate,
greatly weaken regulations mandat-
ed by the Endangered Species Act,
which has protected America's
imperiled species for decades."
Club representatives also point
out that increasing demand for
habitat development in Florida and
other states has fueled such efforts
to weaken underlying protections
for all imperiled species as well as
efforts to downgrade their listing sta-
tus under these weakened laws. For
example, Florida has already down-
graded the federally endangered
red-cockaded woodpecker and is
likely to downgrade the endangered
manatee despite evidence that most
of the manatee population in Flori-
da has likely declined in recent years


as a result of rising threats to their
future survival.
Watercraft collisions are the
number one known cause of man-
atee mortality. Since record keep-
ing began in 1974 through October
31, 2005, 1,369 manatees have
been killed by boats. Additionally,
manatees become entangled in
crab trap and monofilament fishing
lines; they ingest debris; and they
drown or get crushed in floodgates
and canal locks. Places where
manatees feed, rest, breed and
birth their young are shrinking
under the pressures of a rapidly
developing state.
Rose, an avid boater and fisher-
man himself, explains that Save the
Manatee Club is asking the boating
public to make it their goal to slow
down and give manatees a much-
needed break.
To help spread the word about
manatees, the Club is giving away
free manatee adoptions to the first
150 high school science classes


that apply. Each class will receive a
one-year membership in Save the
Manatee Club that includes a photo
of the manatee they select for
adoption, the manatee's biogra-
phy, adoption certificate, a 38-page
educator's guide and four-color
poster, and four newsletters with
updated reports. To sign up, go to
http://www.savethemanatee.org/a
dopt_teacherform.cfm.
"There are many ways we can
all work together now to make a
difference in the lives of Florida's
manatees today and for the future,"
says Rose.

and how your actions can make
a difference, or to sign up for
Save the Manatee Club's new
free E-Newsletter, visit the Web

Tips toward a good relationship with your contractor


DES PLANES, ILL During a
typical remodel, a homeowner's
temper can flare, with the addition
of the dust, noise and of having a
crew working in the home for
most of the day.
The National Association of the
Remodeling Industry (NARI) offers
homeowners some pointers on
how maintain a good relationship
with their remodeling contractors
during a home remodel. A first-rate
remodeling contractor will often
anticipate many of these points
and prepare a homeowner for
what's ahead.
NARI President Paul Winans,
CR, says "The key to a good home-
owner-contractor relationship is
open communication," he contin-
ues, "start a dialogue over issues
you have, no matter how small you


think they are. Chances are the
problem can be overcome."
NARI says, follow these tips and
make life during a home remodel a
little easier:
Before work begins, sit down
with your contractor and discuss
details that will affect your daily
routine. For example, ask that the
workers do not block the driveway
without checking whether the
homeowner's car is out of the
garage. Also, find out what their
schedule will be so you know what
to expect, and if the schedule falls
behind, be sure to ask why to keep
that line of communication open.
From day one, be honest with
your contractor about your expec-
tations. Open communication
establishes trust and is the basis of
a good working relationship. Dis-


cuss problems or irritations as they
occur so you and your contractor
can devise alternative solutions.
Be sure to let your contractor
know if you are planning a vaca-
tion or business trip so they can
make their own schedule. If you
decide to let them work while you
are away, give them a phone num-
ber so they can reach you in case
there is a question.
Allow plenty of time for your
project, keeping in mind that
delays due to weather, material
shortage or other problems cannot
be predicted ahead of time.
Remove your personal property
from the construction areas, and
declare all work zones off limits to
children and pets.
Always put changes in writing,
especially if the plans are modified


while the work is being done. Have
both parties agree on the changes
and sign a written copy of them
before the work begins. And
remember, changes will often
cause delays, so if you decide a
change is in order, be patient with
the extended timeline.
Keep all paperwork related to
the job in one place so thatif there
are any questions on the plans, you
have an easy reference for clarifica-
tion.
And remember, be patient and
keep your mind on the end result.
In due time you'll be cooking your
first meal in your new kitchen or
soaking in your new bath, and you
will have forgotten the noise and
dust, and you can relax in your
newly remodeled home.


Senator Geller request public hearing about FP&L


HALLANDALE BEACH State
Senator Steven A. Geller (D-Hallan-
dale Beach) on Tuesday called on
the Chair of the Senate Communi-
cations and Public Utilities Com-
mittee to hold public hearings
regarding FPLs maintenance of
utility poles after reports that poles
were never properly repaired after
previous hurricanes.


Hurricane Wilma caused exten-
sive power outages in South Flori-
da, and many people are still with-
out power. Wilma, with reported
sustained winds in the 80 mph
range, downed 10,000 poles
despite the fact that the poles are
rated to withstand 119 mph winds.
Recent press reports suggest that
some outages may have been pre-


vented if poles were properly main-
tained and repaired after previous
hurricanes. Specific allegations are
that poles were braced by two-by-
fours screwed into their base and
new poles were tied to broken
poles that still carried the live wires.
"We should not draw conclu-
sions or make preliminary judg-
ments based on these press.


reports," Geller wrote. "FPL claims
that much of the power pole dam-
age may have been caused by
microbursts and wind gusts beyond
the tolerance level of many poles.
Because of this uncertainty, we
need public hearings to clarify the
facts so that we can prevent these
outages and determine if there is a
legislative or regulatory solution.

FINAL PUBLIC NOTICE

Final notice under Executive Order 11988, Floodplain Manage-
ment, is hereby given by the Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency's (FEMA) intent to provide Public Assistance
funding to the Northwest Florida, Southwest Florida, Suwan-
nee River, St. John's River, and South Florida Water Manage-
ment Districts for the repair and restoration of water control
facilities. Funds will be provided in accordance with the Rob-
ert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act,
Public Law 93-288, as amended.

Program: Public Assistance, FEMA Disasters DR-1539-FL,
DR-1545-FL, DR-1551-FL, DR-1561-FL, DR-1595-FL,
DR-1602-FL, and any other as yet undeclared Presidential
disaster declaration that may occur during the 2005 hurri-
cane season.

Statement of Why Action is Located in Floodplain: These pro-
jects involve the repair and restoration of water control fa-
cilities damaged during the 2004 and 2005 hurricane season
and includes, but is not limited to the dredging of sediment
from the canals; repair, restoration, and stabilization of -canal
banks; and the seeding of the restored area. The water con-
trol facilities are functionally dependent on their location, and
therefore located within mapped 1 00-yearfloodplains.

Alternatives Considered: In all cases, the alternatives to be
considered have been and will be: 1) Repair to pre-disaster
conditions. 2) Repair to pre-disaster conditions with mitiga-
tion to minimize impacts during future events. 3) No action
alternative,

Applicability of State/Local Floodplain Standards: Funding will
be conditional upon the projects' conformity with all appli-
cable state and local floodplain standards, the project's ob-
taining any necessary U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits,
and the project complying with any terms and conditions
placed by U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Affects to the Floodplain and Mitigation: The proposed actions
may have short-term impacts to the floodplain during con-
struction. These impacts would consist of short-term water
quality impacts. In some cases, mitigation against damage
during future events will be provided by repairing or replacing
structures with materials that give additional protection.
Long term direct and indirect impacts are expected to be
beneficial because the facilities help manage stormwater and
provide additional floodplain storage.
