It's time for'Spring cleaning


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON This week-
end, just more than six months
after Hurricane Wilma, city resi-
dents will gather to pick up
garbage and trash that still clutter
parts of the city, whether as the
result of storm damage or other
sources of garbage.
The Spring Cleaning will be
coordinated and sponsored by
the City of Clewiston, which
wants to promote awareness and
a proactive attitude when it


comes to keeping our neighbor-
hoods clean.
According to Public Works
Director Sean Scheffler, the need
for volunteers is-not to reinforce
or replace the services provided
by the city, but to try to instill a
better level of awareness and
respect to the cleanliness of the
city.
"We want this to be a continu-
ous, annual event," said Mr.
Scheffler. "The community will
benefit from having people come
together and clean some neigh-


borhoods, which will hopefully
result in better habits by some of
our residents," he said.
The Spring Cleaning event,
scheduled to begin at 7:30 a.m. at
the Youth Center, will continue
until noon on Saturday, April 29.
Some teams have been
formed already; more teams will
be organized and assigned to spe-
cific locations in the city, where
volunteers will be asked to pick
up litter in rights-of-way, alley-
ways, parks and open areas.
Teams coming back with the


Sugar Festival: Bed race fun

Here's the winning team in full stride: CHS's Girl's Softball Team members include
Miranda Waddell, Brittany Pelham, Brooke Beatty. Bianca Sandoval and Kadie Vita. The
girls produced quite a coordinated effort! No one else came close to their 1:18 seconds
Running, hoola hooping, Bubble gum chewing-bubble blowing and water gulping -
and just for the heck of it they ran again and bettered their own time by 2 seconds.

CHS Soft Ball Team wins bed


Wearing scuba flippers in a
foot race should have slowed
them down, but not the
Clewiston High School Soft
Ball Team, instead, they made
goose steps look graceful as
they soared across the finish
line of the Hospital Foundation
Bed Race at Saturday's Sugar
Festival!
With cheerleading attire as
their costumes, Brooke Beatty,

with eight other teams, they
won the race by a landslide

hot dogs and drinks will be pro-

encouraged to be creative and
design unique T-shirts to wear as
a team; the group with the best
theme designs will be given a
prize.
City officials recommend that
teams and individuals bring work
gloves, sunglasses, sunscreen,
and water. Participants are


encouraged to wear brightly-col-

volunteers will meet for hot dogs
and drinks as a "thank you" for
participating in the first annual
fun project that helps the entire
community.

that the Spring Cleaning event

Mrs. Cathy Metz


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON At the end
of the 2005-2006 academic
year, Clewiston High School
will say goodbye to one of its
most popular and beloved
educators.
For nearly four decades,
Cathy Metz has played a vital
role in the educational activi-
ties of the city of Clewiston.
Since coming to Clewiston
High School in 1970, Mrs.
Metz has been a teacher, guid-
ance counselor, and adminis-
trator at the scri::'l
Every student that has
gone on to college from
Clewiston High School in the


last few decades is now very
likely to have Mrs. Metz to
thank for coordinating the
transition to college, as she
has become well remem-
bered as an ever helpful and
resourceful guidance coun-
selor.
However, Mrs. Metz one
of the most loved and experi-
enced educators in the area
- has chosen to retire from
CHS, bringing an end to the
career of one of the longest-
tenured educators at the
school.
Born in Morristown, Ten-
nessee, Mrs. Metz received her

By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON After sam-
pling each and every cake,

bread, pastry, and various
other sugar-based dish, judges
at. the Clewiston Sugar Festival
were pleased to announce that
the three best of the sugary
recipes were all intimately
associated with mice, mud,

effort by Sweet Taste of Sugar
Contest judges to taste every
sweet .concoction submitted
for the. contest, the sugar-
rushed judges finally picked a


winner at .the 20th Annual
Sugar Festival.
Jennifer Davidson's "Mice in
the Sugar House" was a
sweeping sensation at the con-
test, held Saturday during the
Sugar Festival at the Clewiston
Inn's Sugar and Spice Room.
Ms. Davidson's youth division
entry, which can be found in a
recipe sold by Clewiston High

Cake" by Pastor John Hicks
and "Death by Chocolate" by
Greg Glisson.
This year's Sweet Taste of
Sugar Contest was sponsored
by Bonita Bay Group and Lyons
Printing. The contest has been
featured on national television

Projects restore part of Kissimmee


By MaryAnn Morris
By the 1940s, Central Florida
was well-populated. The primary
industry was cattle. In 1946 and
1947, storms and hurricanes
dumped record rainfall on South
Florida. The Kissimmee River
swelled out over its floodplain
and thousands of cattle were
drowned. South of Orlando, most
of the state was under water with
flooding responsible for exten-
sive property damage throughout
South Florida.
A group of concerned citizens
met in Okeechobee, formed the
Central and Southern Flood Con-
trol District (which later became
South Florida Water Management
District) and ultimately petitioned
the government to help control
the flooding.
To protect developing areas
around Kissimmee and control
flooding in the Kissimmee River
Valley, the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers straightened 103 miles
of the meandering Kissimmee
River and its 35,000 acre flood-
plain into a 56-mile-long, 30 foot
deep, 300 foot wide channel,
draining 21,000 acres of flood-
plain in the process. This is the C-
38 Canal.
The wading birds left. The
sandy river bottom where fish
spawned became covered with
silt brought down by rushing
water from the northern reaches
of the watershed and the fish left.
The marshes dried up and ducks
no longer made their nests along
the Kissimmee.
The region that drains into
lakes or rivers is called a water-
shed. The Kissimmee River
watershed forms the headwa-
ters of the Kissimmee-Okee-
chobee-Everglades System. It is
all inter-related. It feeds Lake
Okeechobee and the Everglades.
Water matters in this region are
handled by the South Florida
Water Management (SFWMD),
one of a number of such state
agencies in Florida. Flood con-
trol, water supply, water quality
and maintenance of the natural
areas of the watershed are all
responsibilities of SFWMD. This
includes many different wetland
and aquatic ecosystems, more
than two dozen lakes, their trib-
utary streams, and the Kissim-
mee River.
The restoration of the Kissim-
mee River is not a single project.
The Kissimmee Basin Modeling
and Operations Study, Kissim-
mee River Restoration .Project
(KRRP), Kissimmee River Head-
talers Revitalization Project
(KRHRP), and Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes, (KCOL) Long-Term
Management Plan (LTMP) are
major projects in the watershed.
These projects include ecosystem
restoration, evaluation of the


work, aquatic plant rm
ment, land management
quality improvement, wat

The Long-Term Management
Plan for the Kissimmee Chain of
Lakes was begun by SFWMD in
April 2003. The project's purpose
is to improve and sustain the
ecosystem health of the KCOL
regulated lakes while minimizing
adverse impacts to downstream
ecosystems.
Over the last year, an annotated
bibliography of KCOL literature
has been assembled, (2) a stake-
holder value survey of users of the
KCOL was taken to see what citi-
zens feel is most important and
other scientific studies. Surveys of
people in the KCOL area were col-
lected. The responses showed
that people wanted recreation
such as fishing, swimming and
boating and quiet places where
they could enjoy nature. Project
goals will be changed to reflect
those preferences. A need for
more information was also shown
and two brochures will be
brought out to keep people updat-
ed on the progress of projects,
another will be more general, out-
lining jurisdictions and the agency

Caloosahatchee River 'endangered'


FORT MYERS The
Caloosahatchee River received a
dubious honor April 19 it was
listed as the seventh most
endangered river in the U.S. by
the American Rivers Association.
The Conservancy of South-
west Florida joined with the
Caloosahatchee River Citizens
Association/Riverwatch and
endorsed the nomination of the
river to this annual .list in the
hopes that the disturbing desig-
nation would increase aware-
ness of the dire state of the river
and accelerate restoration
efforts.
"We hope this designation
will provide a means to expedite
improved public policies and
increased funding from govern-
mental agencies to save the
Caloosahatchee from further
decline and aid in its restora-
tion," said Jennifer Hecker, Con-
servancy natural resource policy
manager, in a letter endorsing
the nomination of the river.
The Caloosahatchee River
Watershed earned a grade of C-,
for both water quality and
wildlife in the Conservancy's
landmark Estuaries Report Card
for Southwest Florida, released
in December 2005. (To view the
full report, go to www.conser-
vancy.org.) The report presents a
detailed review and grading of
10 Southwest Florida estuaries,
and offers science-based recom-
mendations for each estuary,
written in a format designed to
help policy-makers make
informed decisions concerning
Southwest Florida's environ-
ment.
According to the report, the
river suffers from a radically
altered water flow, with massive
dumps of-freshwater from Lake
Okeechobee during the wet sea-
son, and not enough water flow
during the dry season. The
resulting spikes in salinity, com-
bined with the nutrient-laden
water from Lake Okeechobee,
have severely impacted the
watershed.
Recommendations in the
report for the Caloosahatchee
include: increasing stormwater
treatment standards in the per-


mitting of new developments
and retrofitting older areas to
reduce stormwater runoff vol-
ume and pollution, reducing
dependency on septic systems,
increasing the capacity for
municipal wastewater treat-
ment, restoring natural flow-
ways for water storage, and pro-
tecting the aquifer recharge
areas.
The Conservancy is actively
involved in improving water
quality in both the Caloosa-
hatchee and throughout the
southwest Florida region, and in
2003 filed a legal challenge
against the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
calling for more stringent water
quality certification standards for
stormwater runoff systems in
new developments. The Conser-
vancy is now working with the
SFWMD and the development
community to develop new cri-


All proceeds will go towards

programs, children's

teria that would provide incen-
tives for stormwater runoff pre-
vention, and incorporate more
effective treatment approaches
in the design and construction of
new developments in southwest
Florida.
"The South Florida Water
Management District acknowl-
edges that over-half of the nutri-
ent pollution in the Caloosa-
hatchee comes from stormwater
runoff from the watershed itself,
rather than from Lake Okee-
chobee. To address this issue,
the District needs to impose
standards in their permitting of
new development that requires
them to take care of their own
pollution on-site, and not con-
tribute to the cumulative degra-
dation of our water resources,"
said Ms. Hecker.
The Conservancy and other
environmental groups also
recently intervened on behalf of


the State of Florida to uphold the
Water Resource Implementation
Rule, which allows for water to
be reserved for fish and wildlife
protection and Everglades
restoration, instead of being
siphoned off for human use, to
the detriment of environment.
The rule would give rivers such
as the Caloosah4tchee a legal
source of water to maintain its
ecological health.
"Water is clearly the lifeblood
of our region," said Andrew
McElwaine, president and CEO
of the Conservancy of Southwest
Florida. "The health of our rivers
and bays directly impacts both
our tourism-based economy and
our quality of life. That's why the
Caloosahatchee's designation as
one of the top 10 most endan-
gered rivers is so important. It's a
wake up call for our region. The
time to act is now."

A house or a home?


The crucial difference


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas
Saint Martin's Church Clewiston
I received an advertisement
about church buildings for sale
from a real estate company in
the southeast. The brochure fea-
tured churches of many denomi-
nations, as well as other fraternal
organizations and commercial
properties where assemblies
were once held. As I reflected on
the ad, I envisioned each one to
represent the hopes of a group
of well-intentioned people gath-
ering, struggling, building a
building, watching things
change over time and then one
day realizing that the building no
longer fit the dream.
There were two possibilities
that occurred to me; perhaps the
congregation outgrew the build-
ing and had to move to larger
quarters, or perhaps the congre-
gation dwindled and no longer
could support the physical plant
that once represented dreams
and aspirations.
The news the other morning
brought a vignette on one of the
larger fraternal organizations
whose representative told the
commentator that he found
membership is down in all fra-
ternal organizations these days
but he couldn't explain why.
People live today under more
pressures than in the past, we
work longer hours, we have
more and more people working
two jobs, we have less and less
income to devote to causes than
before, and there are a host of
factors that keep people from
being involved in something that
is not seen as "absolutely essen-
tial" to their lives. Some of the
Churches in the ad were very
large church buildings.
One wonders if they had out-
grown their building, why they
might not have started a second,
or third congregation. More like-
ly, the buildings represented a
failure to keep up with the
dream that was once held, and
perhaps people finding their way
to another Church when there
were fewer and fewer to do
more and more. The Bible does-
n't speak much about building
buildings; but there is one pas-
sage that came to mind when I
saw the flyer with all of the
Church buildings for sale. It was


important enough to get the
attention of three of the four
gospel writers and tells about
the Lord at His transfiguration.
He takes a small group of dis-
ciples up to a mountain to pray
and while praying, they notice
Jesus' appearance is changed;
His clothes become "as bright as
a flash of lightning (Luke 9:29)"
This wakes up Jesus' sleepy
companions and as they were
leaving, Peter says to Jesus "Mas-
ter, it is good for us to be here,
Let us put up three shelters-one
for you, one for Moses and one
for Elijah... (v. 33) and then Luke
adds in parentheses ("He didn't
know what he was saying.") It
seems that's been the tendency
ever since: share a great experi-
ence with people in common,
then build a monument to com-
memorate it.
The trouble comes when
keeping up the edifice that was
for commemoration becomes
more to the fore than the event
commemorated. Our house is a
home, not because we maintain
the building but because the
building serves the family that
lives there. We speak of "homes
that break up" but never "houses
that break up" because there is
that realization that it is the
intangible family that is key; the
"house" is a shell, a means of
having a place for the family. The
"home" is really where it is at
and the house is a symbol,
adorned, cared-for, decorated,
furnished, but in the end only
the symbol of the home. Why do
I believe thaeChurches continue
in the long run? Because they are
to be "homes". In fact, John
(14:23) speaks about the home;
"If anyone loves me, he will obey
my teaching.
My father will love him and
we will come to him and make
our home with him." Now, that's
a home! That is more than a
shelter, and that's where Peter,
got it wrong that day. That's
where the real Church lives;
that's the message to be con-
veyed and talked about. That's
what we're all about and when
we keep our eye on the "home"
and not the "house" our place is
assured. After all, that's the
home that the Lord talked about
and what it's all about anyway.

We'll say, I'm going to be with Jesus


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Stephen was one of those spe-
cial youths who touched my life.
He was energetic. He was a
leader. He had an open heart for
the Lord, and he loved helping
make things happen in the youth
group. And if that wasn't enough,
he had a cute older sister. I could-
n't have asked for much more as
a single young minister.
Then, Stephen came out of
remission. In six weeks, I saw a
healthy, energetic young man
become a puffy, lethargic mass.
Although the cancer affected
Stephen's body, it did not affect
his spirit. Stephen still wanted to
participate in church programs.
Around Easter, God blessed
me with a program that Stephen
really took to heart. I gave every-
one an empty Leggs container
(the ones shaped like eggs), and
challenged them to go find some-
thing that symbolized new life


and place it in their "egg". We
ended up with flowers and insects
and all kinds of offerings. I then
showed them an empty egg, and
shared with them the story about
the tomb being empty and how
that meant new life for us all.
Stephen liked the illustration so
much that he started handing out
empty eggs at school, sharing
with the recipients about the
empty tomb and its meaning. He
called his eggs "resurrection
eggs".
Stephen eventually slipped
into a coma and was admitted to
the hospital. One day as I was
heading to the church, I got the
inkling to stop at the hospital to
see him. As I went up to the floor,
I met Stephen's dad, who, with
tears in his eyes shared, "John, my
son is dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position mak-
ing whimpering sounds like a lit-
tle puppy. Not knowing what else


Sugar Festival: Rocking On


INI/Bill Fabian
2006 Miss Sugar winner Brittani McNeal says hello to Blake
Shelton before going onstage for the afternoon show at
Saturday's Sugar Festival, where a record crowd gathered
to hear country favorites Shelton and Miranda Lambert.


Country music sensation Miranda Lambert, stole the
show Saturday with an energizing and lively performance
of her country music hits, including "Kerosene" and "Me
and Charlie Talkin'."
12


to do, I held Stephen's hand and
started to pray. I don't know the
time frame, but I suddenly
noticed that the whimpering had
stopped. I looked up and saw
Stephen looking at me. I will
never forget his look or what he
told me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later, Stephen did
go to be with Jesus. But his words
of assurance stayed in my heart.
The church was filled to overflow-
ing with students and young peo-
ple giving testimony after testimo-
ny about how Stephen's faith had
touched their lives. Many came
with the resurrection eggs that
Stephen had given them. One of
the resurrection eggs was even
placed in his coffin. Stephen's
body we placed in the earth, but
Stephen's spirit had already been
claimed he had gone to be with
Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in


Sandy Springs, Ga,, stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life
during the Easter Season. At its
base is a plaque remembering
Stephen Haight. It's a tribute to a
young man who touched many
lives not only with his resurrec-
tion eggs, but with his resurrec-
tion faith.
Because the tomb is empty,
we can have new life. Because
the tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you.
And remember, when the day
comes, as people with resurrec-
tion faith, we can claim and pro-
claim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus."

Lakeport man accused of child pornography PBSO observes National


By Eric Kopp

MOORE HAVEN A Lakeport
man has been booked into the
Glades County Jail under a bond of
$915,000 after being arrested on
numerous child pornography
charges.
Michael James Tyler, 34, was
arrested and charged with: 157
counts of possession of photo-
graphs of the sexual performance
of a child, six counts of transmis-
sion of child pornography; two
counts of distributing obscene
material; and, one count of
obscene communication via the
computer.
The investigation began April 16
when the Glades County Sheriff's
Office (GCSO) received a com-
plaint from a concerned parent in
the Lakeport area. The parent said


that children had viewed sexually
explicit material at Tyler's home.
Shortly after this, GCSO detec-
tives Mike Pepitone and Steve Har-
ris arrested
Tyler on the dis-
tribution and
obscene com-
munications
charges,
"Detective
Pepitone
worked nearly
24 hours a day
on this," said Michael
GCSO Captain James Tyler
Daryl Lewis.
Then, as more victims were
identified and hidden computers
files were retrieved by the United
States Secret Service and the Feder-
al Bureau of Investigation, Tyler
was charged with the 157 counts of
possession of photographs and the


transmission of child pornography.
The captain said one picture equals
one count.
According to Capt. Lewis, the
Secret Service retrieved photos
reportedly taken by Tyler with the
children from the hard drive of his
computer. He went on to say that
the Secret Service is currently trying
to ascertain where the photos were
sent.
Capt. Lewis said the apparent
victims were all from the Lakeport
area and were boys between the
ages of 14 and 17. The alleged
crimes were all committed in
Tyler's home, the captain added.
None of the victims were physi-
cally injured, said Capt. Lewis.
Tyler, said Capt. Lewis, had only
lived in Lakeport for a little over a
year and he's had no prior arrests.
"He's clean," said Capt. Lewis.
"He bounces around, that's why


he's stayed under the radar. He's
lived in Broward and Dade coun-
ties, as well as in Melbourne."
Glades County Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon said the investigation is
continuing at both the state and
federal levels. He said the FBI is cur-
rently seeking federal indictments
against Tyler.
At the federal level, Capt. Lewis
said if convicted of one count of
production of child pornography
Tyler could be sentenced to life in
prison.
He went on to state that the
investigation will be continuing
because "we're sure there are
more victims out there."
Sheriff Whiddon said anyone
having additional information
regarding this case should contact
Detective Pepitone at (863) 946-
1600.


Trigger man sought in Belle Glade shooting


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

BELLE GLADE Detectives
with the Belle Glade Police
Department are looking for the
suspect behind a shooting that
happened in Belle Glade early
Sunday. The shooting was direct-
ed at two people, one of whom
is now suffering from life-threat-
ening injuries he received in the
attack.
According to detectives han-
dling. the case, the shooting hap-
pened April 23 at approximately


4a.m.
The two victims were walking
along the 900 Block of Avenue A,
walking in front of a residence,
when shots were fired in their
direction.
At this point, police believe
the shooting may have been the
result of a drive-by attack.
When they heard the shoot-
ing, the two victims tried to run
away from the source of the
attack, but one was hit by the
gunfire.
The victim, whose name is


being withheld by police, suf-
fered a serious gunshot wound
to his back. He was transported
to St. Mary's Hospital for further
treatment, but on Monday was
listed in critical condition.
Discussing the condition of
the victim, Detective A. Willis
said, "We're hoping he'll make it
through."
In the meantime, police have
identified a "person of interest"
in the case and will be following
up the investigation of the case.
According to police, the


attack may have been the culmi-
nation of a feud between the vic-
tim and the suspect.
"The suspect definitely knew
who he was shooting at," said
Sgt. Calipto Gonzalez, who said
that witnesses have suggested
the shooting was over a girl.
Police officials said they
would like to make arrest by the
end of 'the week and urge the
public to contact them if they
have any information on the
case. Detectives can be reached
at 996-7251.

New law require airboats to have mufflers


Florida airboat owners have a
few more months to ensure their
crafts have automotive-style muf-
flers installed on the boats' engine
exhausts.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
approved the enforcement proto-
col last year, effective June 30,
2006.
An education campaign for air-
boat owners will continue through
June 30. After that date, FWC offi-
cers have the option to issue writ-
ten warnings or citations for failure
to use the appropriate muffling
devices.
Registered airboat owners in


Florida should have received a let-
ter and brochure explaining in
detail the law enforcement proto-
col airboats must have automo-
tive-style mufflers or a muffling sys-
tem designed and installed to abate
exhaust sounds and gases emitted
from an internal combustion
engine. Anyone who has yet to
receive a letter and brochure, or
who needs additional copies,
should call Brian Rehwinkel at
(850) 488-5600 or e-mail him at
brian.rehwinkel@MyFWC.com.
State law requires vessels'
engine exhaust to be muffled effec-
tively in a reasonable manner. Indi-
vidual counties may enact addi-


tional ordinances to restrict vessel
sound to 90 decibels at 50 feet.
Researchers examined sound
levels from different styles of muf-
flers including exhaust and
intake manifold mufflers and differ-
ing propeller designs at various
operating speeds and distances
from an observer. They deter-
mined that several components,
when used together, could provide
the needed incremental improve-
ments to reduce airboat sound lev-
els significantly. They include muf-
flers, wide-blade propellers and
prop-speed reduction.
Historically, "flex-pipe" (flexible
tubing that diverts engine 'exhaust


behind the boat) has been widely
accepted as a reasonable device
for muffling sound. Newly released
scientific research reveals flex-pipe
does not meet Florida's muffling
requirements.
"Your Guide to Safe and Courte-
ous Airboat Operation," a
brochure, included with the letter,
discusses additional methods to
further reduce sound levels and
includes the Airboater Code of
Ethics, tips on courtesy and proper
outdoor stewardship.

boat muffling requirements, go to

Glades gets peek at area economic entity


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE History will
show that the best-laid plans of
mice and men often go awry.
The statement can be evi-
denced in the myriad projects in
the area that, due to a lack of
financial or professional follow-
through, often did not make it
past the conceptual stage.
Looking to provide an avenue
through which the plans of local
cities and residents may actually
have a chance, officials in Palm
Beach County are hoping that
the Glades will embrace a
regional economic development
entity.
Though the idea is still at a
very early stage, and the board
does not yet exist, the plans have
already caught the attention of
local leaders some of whom
are excited with the plans, oth-
ers who feel that they should
tread more carefully, worried
that they may be losing the
power to shape the future of
their own communities.
"I think it will be a benefit to
the Glades if it can be an entity
that doesn't dictate to the cities,


but will partner with the cities,"
said Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser.
The idea behind the concept
resulted from a study in 2002,
completed by Dr. Herb Marlowe
of Arrington-Marlowe, called the
Business Plan for the Glades.
This study looked at many eco-
nomic efforts currently under-
way in the Glades, and asked
residents and business leaders in
the area to identify how best to
put the plans into place. The
consensus was the suggestion to
establish a "regional economic
development entity governed by
the economic interests of the
region."
Now, the Palm Beach County
Office of Economic Develop-
ment, along with Dr. Marlowe, is
introducing the concept to the
local cities. A presentation of the
concept was provided at the
Monday Tri-Cities Meeting in
Belle Glade.
The role of the regional eco-
nomic development entity has
been the topic of much debate
in recent weeks, with one of the
comments being that the new
agency would usurp powers that
each municipality now has in


the development of their cities
and towns.
Dr. Marlowe said that the plan
for the economic development
entity was never based on taking
powers away from municipali-
ties, but had been planned from
the start as playing more of a
complementary role, aiding the
cities in some of their more
ambitious projects.
"If you guys say we don't
want to do it [a project], then we
don't want to do it," explained
Dr. Marlowe. "It's not trying to
make policy, that's your job," he
told commissioners. "This is not
a governmental bureaucracy."
The idea is in shaping rough
concepts to the point where
cities then have the ability to
look at them from a more pre-
cise and more logically thought-
out perspective. The profession-
al expertise would fill in those
gaps such as design and plan-
ning that the local cities with
their budgetary constraints
sometimes cannot afford to pay.
The entity would take referrals
from the cities, or the unincor-
porated areas, and, depending
on staff, could concentrate on

about a handful of projects from
year to year.
The entity would be funded
by a combination of public
funds, grants, foundations and
university support.
"If there is a project that you
can't put your arms around, this
team can do it," said Pam Nolan
with the county's office of eco-
nomic development. According
to Ms. Nolan, the entity would
also relieve her staff from having
to concentrate simply on the
most important projects going
on in the Glades at any given
time. "In my office we're
swamped with projects from the
Glades."
The actual entity may have
approximately three people on
staff, including an executive
director, an architect and a per-
son with project development
experience, or perhaps a slight
variation, depending on the
focus of the entity.
South Bay Commissioner
Shirley Walker-Turner expressed
concern at the "regionalization"
of the area. With more and more
services being turned over to the
county including fire, police
and the regional water plant that
is now under construction -
she asked when the regionaliza-
tion would end, or if the county
had eventual plans to create a
single, large area made up of the
three cities in the Glades.
While local cities have a limit-
ed say on whether or not the
board is created, the request
from the group for the appoint-
ment of members to the board
may just be the trigger to get the
agency up and running.
At the moment, the board is
to be made up of over 21 mem-
bers, which will be appointed by
each of the cities and the unin-
corporated lands, the area
chambers of commerce, the
local college, and representa-
tives from the agricultural com-
munity, as well as the Workforce
Alliance and other associations.
The make-up of the board
also represents the desire to add
more political weight to the enti-
ty. "I stress that it needs to be
regional," Dr. Marlowe said.
"Out here, everyone wins
together or everyone fails
together."

JoMeph AiteJCleL Pozette
4/1/o06

Joseph Michael was born November 25, 1951 at
Hendry General Hospital in Clewiston, Florida to
Dorothy and Fred Postell. "Joe" was the youngest sibling.
-- His older brothers were Wilbur Postell of Clewiston,
Dennis Postell of Punta Gorda, Florida and one sister,
Anna Postell Clinard of Clewiston. He was preceded in
death by a brother, Melvin, a-niece, Connie Clinard and his
Dad, Fred Postell. Joey died April 11, 2006 at Lee
Memorial Hospital.
Joe was born healthy but with a defect in his bladder
that was difficult to diagnose. Before his first birthday he had suffered permanent dam-
age due to high fevers resulting in his mental retardation.
Even though Joe was deficient in his mental abilities, he was a most unique and
special creation of God. His life was colorful with his own exceptional personality and
his love for people was unsurpassed. Joe's love and respect for God was commendable
and genuine.
Our Dad became very ill. Due to the intense care of Daddy we had to make a
decision in Joe's behalf and admit him to Gulf Coast Facility in East Ft. Myers, Florida.
Joe spent 13 years at the facility but frequented his home town with visits until his
health no longer permitted home visits.
Joe will long be remembered as the self employed, self appointed "inspector" of
all building sites, including City Hall, Post Office, Banks, Department Stores, Grocery
Stores, Churches or whatever may be under construction including sidewalks,
Sugarland Highway, W.C. Owen, Aztec, drainage canals/ditches. Joe never missed a
happening when it involved his sweet home town of Clewiston. His enthusiasm to
"assist" often turned into havoc, but none the less he could be counted on to "be on the
job."
Joe had an admiration for the Fire Department that ran a close first to his job
as Inspector. He never missed a meeting and he would be available to direct the trucks
to and from the calls whenever the sun was up or had not set beyond dusk. Our home
was across the street from the Fire Station. Our parents owned and operated Clewiston
Seafood and Poultry Market for many years. It was located across the street from the
Fire Department also. Availability to the entire community was convenient whether he
was on his bicycle or walking.
Our family was comforted, at the service for Joe, when various friends would
share about their good times with him down through the years. Michael Baldree was in
the states for a few days (he's a Missionary overseas) and spoke of his families times
growing up around Joe. Bo Pelham, Fire Marshall, gave accurate data pertaining to
Joe's activity around the Fire Department. The united messages by Pastor Corley and
his son, Gary, gave a fresh insight on God having a purpose for each of His creations -
fulfilling purpose is not always the picture perfect definition we may be prone to place
on God's plan. So it was with our son and brother, Joe.
It would not be complete if Joe's love and care for all fellowmen were not
included. Many will remember Dqc's Taxi Service from Harlem. You may also remem-
ber Doc had a most individualized method of conducting his business of transporting his
passengers in and out of the various streets, alleys and roads of our area. Basically, you
rode at your own risk. Although, Joe would hitch a (free) ride with Doc on any given
day and never think twice about Doc's driving skills. In fact, more often than not, he
drummed up ample business for Doc from his reserved front passenger seat.
Having the biggest and newest fire truck leading the procession for Joe as he
was being taken to his burial at Ridgelawn Cemetery was a tribute, in his behalf, we
will always remember. As Joe's family, we will hold Joe's friends in our community close
to our hearts. Thank you for loving him and caring for him through the years. God bless
each one of you.
".......the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with
the glory which shall be revealed in us." Romans 7:18

Avian influenza: Bird flu scare


This information is part of a
series on Pandemic Influenza
provided by The Hendry and
Glades County Health Depart-
ments. The series will cover basic
information and actions to be
taken if Pandemic Flu becomes a
realistic threat to the citizens of
Hendry and Glades County. This
is the fourth article in the series.
For the past few weeks we
have been discussing Avian Flu
and steps that can be to taken to
prepare in the event of a pandem-
ic flu. Dr. Fernandez, Director for
Hendry and Glades Health
Department, has encouraged citi-
zens of Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties to prepare a disaster kit. The
supplies can also be used to be
prepared for hurricane season.
Dr. Fernandez has recommended
stocking up on prescription med-
icines, preparing a family emer-
gency plan, and purchasing sev-
eral non perishable food items
each week.
What is Avian Influenza?
Bird Flu is a virus that affects
birds. Avian Influenza does not
usually infect people, but infec-
tions with these viruses -have


occurred in humans. The possi-
bility of a human being infected is
rare and usually involves touch-
ing a sick or dead bird that carried
the virus, handling infected birds,
or touching surfaces contaminat-
ed by sick birds or their drop-
pings.
What is an epidemic?
An epidemic is a widespread
outbreak of disease.
What is a pandemic?
A pandemic is an epidemic
(widespread outbreak) that
affects the world. Pandemic flu is
a global disease outbreak that
occurs when a new influenza
virus appears that causes serious.
illness. People have little or no
immunity to the new virus and it
can spread easily from person to
person. Currently there is no pan-
demic flu.
What causes a pandemic?
A pandemic starts when three
things happen:
*A new influenza virus sub-
type emerges
*It infects humans, causing
them to be seriously ill
*It spreads easily and rapidly
from human to human.


Experts are concerned
because the first two conditions
have already been met. The
H5N1 is a new virus for which
humans have no immunity. It has
infected over 194 people in which
half died, which means it is a par-
ticularly virulent (potent) disease.
As the disease spreads, there are
more opportunities for the virus
to mutate (change) into a strain
that is easily transmissible
between people.
What happens in a pandemic?
What could I expect to see?
There would be warning
signs. Possible signs might
include:
* eClusters of patients with
avian flu symptoms in different
parts of the country.
*Health workers caring for
these patients would start to
show the same symptoms, indi-
cating that the third criteria for a
pandemic had been met: person
to person transmission was tak-
ing place.
*Because the flu can be trans-
mitted by coughing or sneezing
even before a person knows they
are sick, avian influenza would


spread rapidly because of travel
and transmission due to close
proximity.
eHospitals could be over-
whelmed by the number of peo-
ple seeking care, and there may
be high rates of worker absen-
teeism which could interrupt the
flow of services such as police,
fire, and rescue.
*Transportation and commu-
nications could suffer if there was
a quarantine order; and leisure
activities would be discouraged
thereby affecting the economy.
*Medicine and medical equip-
ment might be in short supply.
*Pandemics can last 6-24
months.

More information will be pro-
vided next week, but remember
that the best defense against any
infection is proper hand-washing.
Dr. Fernandez states, "Our com-
munity should use this time to
prepare, not panic, and remem-
ber that the goal of the Hendry
and Glades County Health
Departments is to keep our com-
munity well informed".

Sports in Brief


Wanted: High School
Football Officials
CLEWISTON Have you
ever thought about becoming
a football official? Well, accord-
ing to Nick Smith, Game Assign-
er for the South Gulf Football
Officials Association (SGFOA),
there has never been a better
time. According to Mr. Smith
who is a LaBelle resident and
veteran high school official, a
very severe shortage of officials
for all sports at all levels exists
nationwide. The demand for
officials in Florida has outgrown
the growth of the officiating
ranks. Mr. Smith said the SGFOA
will train, assign games and pay
you for officiating high school
games. Youth (Pop Warner) offi-
ciating can also be scheduled
through SGFOA membership.
The spring recruiting meeting of
the SGFOA will be held Monday
May 8, beginning at 7 p.m. in the


cafeteria at Fort Myers Senior
High School. All persons inter-
ested are invited to attend the
meeting and/or call Nick Smith
at (863)675-3502 for more infor-
mation.

Clewiston Recreation Depart-
ment is hiring Red Cross Certi-
fied lifeguards for the 2006 sum-
mer term. Starting pay is $9 per

ments are coming
CLEWISTON Fishing tour-
naments will be held May 6-7,
and June 10-11. The Big Bucks
Tournaments allow for larger
paybacks and more prizes.

total two-day weight winning
the tournaments. Multiple

number of participants. Entries
may be picked up at local bait
and tackle shops, on the Bass
Busters Web site at www.bass-
bustersflorida.com or by calling

The Team entry is $200 and
includes the Big Bass Jackpot.
All tournaments run from Safe-
light to 3 p.m. Sign-ups are
accepted up until tournament
start time at the city ramp in
Clewiston.


Coast Guard makes
house calls
LAKE OKEECHOBEE Did
you know the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary makes house calls?
They will come to your home to
discuss the required safety
equipment needed on your


boat. This service is free. You

tive and confidential boat

place April 13 at the LaBelle Civic
Center with residents trying to fill in
any blanks left from the previous
meetings.
Residents offered their input
into the most important needs in
each category. The first, meetings
were held in February, one in
Clewiston and one in LaBelle. The
third meeting was in Clewiston last
month with the wrap up last week
in LaBelle to add last minute
details. The resulting "vision" is to
be used as a guide for decision
makers as developments takes
hold in this rural community. The
final document will be available
online at consensus.fsu.edu/heart-
land in about a month.
The document was broken
down into the following cate-
gories.
Development
With regard to development,
residents want to make sure
impact fees are sufficient to pro-
vide education, fire protection,
roads, law enforcement and recre-
ation. The next most important
issue was making sure green space
is incorporated and then that the
cities and county coordinate plan-
ning. People also hope to preserve
agriculture in Hendry County.
They want better regulation and
enforcement of building and zon-
ing laws and codes and a cleanup
or removal of substandard trailer
parks.
Infrastructure needs were
topped by water and sewer,
stormwater management and put-
ting utilities underground. People
also want more retail businesses
(restaurants, grocery stores, and so
on) with larger retail stores kept on
the" outskirts, not in residential
areas.
Other important points in this
categorywere: downtown redevel-
opment for local communities,
landscaping for downtown areas
and preservation of public spaces
and visual anchors.
In residential development, resi-
dents want to promote quality
mixed use developments and clus-
ter developments with preserva-
tion areas. The feel large develop-
ments should provide parallel
roads to preserve level of service
on main roads.

Public Library by calling (863)
983-1493.


Housing
Affordable housing was an
important issue for residents to
supply single and multi-family
housing for the workforce, low
income families and seniors. There
is also a need for good rental prop-
erty and housing within close prox-
imity to jobs, people feel.
In general there should be a
variety of housing and affordable
options to mobile homes no trail-
er parks in the cities
Transportation
Expanding SR 80 to four lanes
should continue and a truck route
should be built around Clewiston
and LaBelle. They also want bike
paths and sidewalks.
People also expressed a need to
identify future high traffic corridors
and acquire the right-of-way now
to minimize future costs. SR 29 will
be huge clog after the Town of Ave
Maria and university area built, so
people feel it's important to four
lane SR 29 to 1-75 and also the one-
mile stretch of SR 82 in Hendry.
Public transportation needs to
be addressed. People learned that
a bus line is opening a route from
West Palm Beach to Fort Myers
with stops in Clewiston and
LaBelle.
Economy


Residents want to diversify the
local economy by attracting indus-
try and new business; preserve his-
toric'downtowns; offer incentive
plans to attract business and help
existing businesses; and develop
ecotourism. Although one element
on the list is to preserve agriculture,
it was noted that international pres-
sures depressing agriculture are
out of loci control. However, locals
should make use of avenues to
influence national leaders wherev-
er possible.
Development of the new
Clewiston Commerce Park and
promotion of Airglades Industrial
Park are cited as important. The
need to provide utilities, roads and
other infrastructure in order to
attract business was also noted.
Natural
environment
Main topics here include clean-
ing up Lake Okeechobee, preserv-
ing open space, getting federal and
state assistance for water storage
and quality improvement, as well
as the creation of greater access to

college education from Belmont
University in Nashville, which
she attended from 1964 to 1968.
After working for a year in
Kentucky, Mrs. Met moved to
Clewiston to work at CHS,
where she remembers being
almost immediately as one with
the students there.
"I wasn't much older than my
students," said Mrs. Metz,
recounting memories of her first
year at CHS.
In that first year, Mrs. Metz
worked with "memorable col-
leagues" Kathy Pittman, Gladys
Beatty, and Isabelle Belton, who
Mrs. Metz considers her mentors
during her beginning years at
Clewiston High School.
One of her students from that
first year was Robert Egley, who
is just finishing his first year as
the principal at CHS.


natural areas. People also wanted
to see the development of Best
Management Practices (BMPs) for
development with federal/state
matches. It was also felt that land
purchased by the state for panther
habitat should be made available
for economic use.
Health care
Although the Clewiston area felt
it is well covered in health care, the
western side of the county resi-
dents feel the need to attract doc-
tors; possible an area health educa-
tion center. A new regional hospital
and more use of telemedicine are
also important goals.
Education
This much work to be done in
this category, too, including recruit-
ing qualified teachers and offering
good salaries. People want' to
enhance the arts and culture local-
ly, offer computer training, environ-
mental and health education and
identify sites for future schools.
There is also a need for apprentice-
ships and mentorships to help
youth develop a better vision of the
world, some felt.
Culture, recreation
This category could be
improved with downtown walking
areas with theaters, better use of
the Nature Park and museums.
People also want to preserve the
Indian, cattle and sugar heritage of
the county.
Recreation
This should focus on the river,
lakes and park activities, as well as
creating facilities for young adults
and teens, a family rec center and
expansion of the Nature Park.
Public safety
In this category, the county will
soon need to'move the jail and pro-
vide space for a new judge as well
as bring salaries up commensurate
with surrounding areas.


"Coming back to Clewiston
High School has been a very
pleasant experience, especially
seeing a lot of familiar faces,"
said Dr. Egley. "Mrs. Metz was
one of my teachers, and it is
great to work with her again," he
said.
Mrs. Metz participated in
numerous activities as an educa-
tor; she was a 9th, 10th, 11th
and 12th grade sponsor, Student
Council advisor, Yearbook advi-
sor, Tigerette sponsor, and ten-
nis coach.
Mrs. Metz has always helped
preserve and maintain the quali-
ty of education that has endured
at Clewiston High School, and
the school will have to make
major adjustments to accommo-
date for her absence after this
year. However, current and for-
mer teachers, students, and
members of the community will
always remember the dedicated
service and pleasing smile of
Cathy Metz.

Area alligator farmers cashing in on fashion trends


GAINESVILLE, Fla. While
some agricultural producers are
facing tough times, Florida alli-
gator farmers are cashing in on
reptile chic the growing
worldwide demand for alligator
skins on everything from belts
and boots to $10,000 designer
handbags.
"The market for high-end alli-
gator leather products is very
strong right now, and farmers
are getting top dollar for their
gator skins," said Perran Ross, a
wildlife ecologist with the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
"Florida alligator farming has
had its ups and downs in recent
years, but it's definitely a good
time for those who are already
established in the business."
He said Louisiana is the
nation's leading producer, har-
vesting about 300,000 alligators
every year compared to 60,000
in Florida, but Hurricanes Katri-
na and Rita damaged alligator
egg production in Louisiana. As
a result, luxury-goods manufac-
turers in the United States and
Europe need to secure future
supplies of alligator skins, which
is helping Florida farmers who
can provide high quality prod-
ucts.
He said the value of finished
alligator skin products may be
anywhere from five to ten times
the raw-product value.
Allen Register, owner of
Gatorama in Palmdale, Fla., one
of 60 licensed alligator farms in
the state, said prices for alligator
bellies range from $40 to $50 per
foot, which is up by almost 50
percent from a few years ago.
He said that belly skins are more
valuable because they are soft

Perran Ross, a wildlife ecolo-
gist with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences,
holds an alligator being
raised for its meat and skin -
Monday, March 27, 2006. He
said that demand is high and
prices are good for Florida
alligator skins, particularly
smaller skins of high quality
used in fashion accessories.
In Louisiana, the nation's
largest producer, the 2005
hurricanes reduced the har-
vest of wild alligators and

ing demand for Florida alli-
gator products.
and flat, compared to horn-back
skins that have bumpy ridges
and are often used in western-
wear market."
Like other Florida alligator
farmers, Register harvests gators
when they reach four or five feet
in length, which requires about


two years of growth. He said
Louisiana farmers typically har-
vest three- or four-foot long alli-
gators after one year to save on
the space needed to raise such
large numbers.
"In the past, buyers have
been a lot more fussy about
scars and scratches on hides,
but we are seeing less emphasis
on those imperfections, proba-
bly because of the increased
demand from U.S. and foreign
luxury-goods manufacturers,"
he said. "After some slow times
during the past eight or nine
years, the market is definitely on
the upswing."
In addition to the strong inter-
national demand for alligator
hides, the domestic appetite for
alligator meat is growing, com-
manding prices of $4.50 to $4.75
per pound at the wholesale level
and $7.50 to $10 per pound at
retail, Register said.
Christy Plott Redd, marketing
director for American Tanning
and Leather Company in Griffin,
Ga., buys skins from producers
all over the world but prefers
American alligator skins
because of their high quality.
"Florida is key to our busi-
ness because we need .those
grade-one skins to sell to hand-
bag manufacturers and fashion
designers," she said. "As the
demand for better quality, faster
delivery and larger sizes contin-
ues to grow, the farmers in Flori-
da will play a bigger role in the
luxury market."
She said some skins are com-
mercially harvested, while oth-
ers are taken in cooperation
with a state's nuisance alligator
program. "From our experience,
the percentage of grade-one

skins or handbag-quality skins
- is about 8 percent from those
taken from the wild. That num-
ber jumps to 90 percent or more
when we buy farm-raised
skins."
Ms. Redd said there will
always be a demand for good
quality skins, and farmers who
are good can stay in business
during difficult times. "We have
all seen the hard times in this
business, and it's not pretty," she
said. "It's sad to see people
who've been around for years
and years suddenly go out of
business, but it happens in every
industry."
She said farmers should
focus on growing the best alliga-
tors they can rather than grow-
ing the most alligators they can.
"When demand slacks off,
that's when we start getting
more picky," Redd said. "We
can always sell good skins, but
we can hardly give the poor
ones away. In this industry, we
need more research on how to
grow the best quality skins."
Ross, an alligator and croco-
dile expert in UF's wildlife ecolo-
gy and conservation depart-
ment, said alligator farming has
about a $25 million impact on
Florida's economy. He said it is


not a "get rich quick scheme"
but one that requires large capi-
tal investments over a three- or
four-year period when little or
no income is being generated.
To protect this renewable
resource in Florida, alligator
farms are licensed and regulated
by the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
He said the vast majority of
alligator skins are produced
from eggs purchased and col-
lected from wild alligators in the
state.
"These eggs are hatched and
raised in farms to produce a fast
growing and better quality prod-
uct," he said. "Therefore, there
is a direct link between these
valuable reptiles and maintain-
ing wetland habitats for them."
Ross said the commercial
harvest of alligators actually
helps conserve the species and
their habitats because the eco-
nomic incentives from egg pro-
duction and legal harvesting
encourage landowners to main-
tain wetlands. In addition,
license fees from the program
help support research, monitor-
ing and wildlife management
programs that conserve alliga-
tors.
"In other words, alligators


pay their own way for their con-
servation," he said. "Florida has
a model program that is emulat-
ed all over the world for manag-
ing alligators and their habitat
for sustainable economic gain."
Another advantage of alliga-
tor farming is that farmers can
produce high-value products
year-round for national and
international markets, he said.
"Alligator farms do not require
large tracts of land or water, and
farm operations do not have
adverse effects on the environ-
ment. Land that may have been
a nonproductive or marginal
wetland can be used for alligator
farming," he said.
Alligator farming is also an
efficient way to utilize meat and
meat products that are not suit-
able for human consumption.
Aged or freezer-burned meat,
unused fish from commercial
trawlers and offal from poultry
processing plants are good
sources of food for farms, Ross
said.
He said American crocodiles,
whose hides are similar to alliga-
tor skins, are making a come-
back in South Florida, but these
endangered reptiles cannot be
harvested or raised commercial-
ly in the United States.

Hendry Glades counties combine shelters


By Patty Brant
LABELLE The 2005 hurri-
cane season made believers out of
a lot of Hendry and Glades County
residents. Many are still trying to
piece their lives back together after
Wilma's catastrophic strike last
October. With the start of the 2006
hurricane season only about six
weeks away, preparations are in
full swing for what is being fore-
casted as another year of numer-
ous and potentially deadly storms.
This year Hendry and Glades
are trying something new to serve
some of its "most fragile residents."
Persons with Special Needs (PSNs)
those with chronic medical con-
ditions requiring special accom-
modations are provided with a
special shelter during times of
extreme emergency. Special Needs
Shelters offer basic life preserving
accommodations only. There is a
public health nurse on site, but
Director of Nursing -for the
Hendry/Glades Health Department
Pat Dobbins warns their function is
to "get you through the crisis" only.
As with all shelters, people must
bring their own necessities includ-
ing food, bedding, toiletries, water
and other comforts as well as their
medications and other health care
needs, including oxygen and dia-
betic paraphernalia. In addition,
those at PSN shelters must have a
caregiver stay with them.
During Wilma, local PSNs were
open for 96 hours. Keep in min mind
that shelters are not comfortable
places. They are simply large struc-
tures built to withstand high winds,
intended to keep people safe
through the storm. So, any com-
forts you may have, you will have to
bring with you.
In the past few years, there have
been a total of three PSN shelters in
Hendry/Glades. This year the two
Emergency Management offices
and the Hendry-Glades Health
Department have partnered to con-
solidate them into just one the
Muse Community Center. Built to
withstand a Category Four storm,
the Muse center is a compromise.
Hendry's Emergency Management
Director Tom Kochheiser said the
state wanted local PSNs to be shel-
tered at Sarasota. After Wilma last
year, .the state recommended the
area regionalize Emergency Man-
agement functions. The joint PSN is
one way the two counties are
cooperating through team work to
achieve a "high level of service and
safety efficiency," Glades EM Direc-
tor Angela Osceola agrees.
PSN procedures remain the
same. You must register in advance
with your Emergency Management


INI/Patty Brant
A joint Hendry/Glades pilot project has consolidated the area's shelters for Persons with Spe-
cial needs. Members of the bi-county team are, pictured from left: Hendry/Glades Health Depart-

Department Director of Nursing Pat Dobbins and Glades County EM Director Angela Osceola.


office as a PSN. Currently, there are
some 35 people on the PSN registry
in LaBelle, 12 in Clewiston and ten in
Moore Haven. As a storm approach-
es and the shelter opens, emergency
management personnel will still call
those on the register to coordinate
their plan. As previously, Good
Wheels will still pick up people reg-
istered for the PSN shelter or they
may be transported there by family
or friends. Remember, you must be
ready to go when the Good Wheels
bus arrives it will not wait and it
will not return foryou.
Health department nurse Susan
Holland said staff stationed at the
PSN will check patients in, along
with their caregiver and supplies.
They will go over their registration
form and verify their information.
Health department staff is there to
support caregivers, not take their
place in any way, and to provide a
calming effect with a little extra TLC.
The Glades County EMS will
also be using the Muse Community
Center as a staging area, so during
the storm there will be the added
advantage of having EMT/para-
medics on hand if needed. Howev-
er, once the storm passes and
ambulances can again be on the
road, they will be responding to the
many emergency calls that will
inevitably be coming in.
Residents should remember that
all public shelters are "refuges of last
resort" only. No comforts and no
pets (so make sure to have a plan
for your animals before the'storm
hits). Public shelters are crowded
and noisy, with none of the relative
comforts you would have at home,
even with a-loss of power Emer-
'gency personnel advise that, if you


have anywhere else to go during the
storm, that's your best bet. Stay
home, if possible, shelter with fami-
ly or friends in a substantial struc-
ture or leave the area.
Ms. Osceola and Mr. Kochheiser
remind all residents to start putting
their hurricane supplies together
now. Include necessary medica-
tions (or at least a list of them),
nonperishable foods, water, flash-
lights, radios, batteries, extra


clothes and things to keep you

Doc Savvy's Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. My
name is Ivan and so is my cat's!
Although we have similar names,
we do not have similar problems.
Ivan is an indoor/outdoor cat with
usually very little wrong going on.
However just yesterday I noticed
he had little white worms crawling
out of his butt! It was very disgust-
ing to say the least. I bought him a
de-wormer at the feed store but
those darn things won't go away.
What do I do, and where did he get
those things from anyway?
Ivan in Canal Point.
Answer: Hey Ivan and Ivan!
Sounds like Ivan the cat has tape-
worms. Tapeworms are a type of
intestinal parasite which are trans-
mitted by fleas! Not by a flea bite,
but by eating a flea. More than like-
ly Ivan the cat accidentally ate a flea
while grooming himself. Tape-
worms are gotten rid of by a veteri-
nary cesticidal de-wormer. In other
words you have to go to the vet for
help. This de-wormer comes in
both pill and injection form, and
has to be repeated two weeks later.


DocSavvy
Also Ivan, consider buying some
advantage for your cat for monthly
flea control?
Hope that helps Ivan the person!
Take care,
Doc Savvy.

Papaya are packed with nutrition ITrdmrenews, stwwwnewsz po I


I noticed at the grocery store this
week that papaya is in season.
Papaya is one of Nature's
"superfoods." Papayas are good
sources of carotenes, vitamin C and
flavonoids; the B vitamins, folate
and pantothenic acid; and the min-
erals, potassium and magnesium.
The fruit is also a good source of
dietary fiber. A ripe papaya will be
mostly yellow to yellow-orange
and will give slightly between your
palms, but not be mushy.
Papaya is also good for your
digestion. It has long been used as
the "health food" remedy for
ulcers. Papaya enzyme helps break
down foods. For this reason,
papaya enzyme is often an ingredi-
ent in meat tenderizers.
Papayas are a tropical fruit. In
the United States, they are grown in
Hawaii, California and Florida.
The following information
about papayas came from the Uni-
versity of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Services.
The papaya was first described
by the Spanish chronicler Oviedo in
1526 from the Caribbean coast of
Panama and Colombia. It was
soon grown throughout the trop-
ics, its distribution undoubtedly
being aided by an abundance of
seed of relatively long viability (up
to 3 years under cool, dry condi-
tions). It has become naturalized in
many tropical regions, particularly
in areas with fertile soils and abun-
dant rainfall.
Papayas are giant herbaceous,
dicotyledonous plants which may
produce fruit for more than 20
years. When cultivated, plants usu-
ally have a single trunk, but several


A

Life


with Katrina Elsken

branches may develop as the plants
become older. Trees growing in fer-
tile, well drained soils with sufficient
moisture may reach a height of 30
feet or more. The grayish trunk is
marked by characteristic large leaf
scars and has soft, pulpy wood. The
large, deeply lobed leaves, some-
times reaching 3 feet across, have
hollow, soft petioles 2 feet or more
in length. The melon-like fruit varies
considerably in size and shape, and
hangs from short, thick peduncles
at the leaf axils.
The papaya thrives best under
warm conditions with abundant
rainfall or irrigation. It cannot toler-
ate strong winds, flooding, or
frosts, and it recuperates very slow-
ly if it has sustained considerable
leaf or root injury. Temperatures of
30F or lower usually cause severe
damage or death.
Seeds are produced abundantly
and germinate readily (in 10 to 15
days) and uniformly. Under suitable
growing conditions fruit can be har-
vested in 8 to 10 months. Seeds
should be obtained from ripe fruit,
washed to remove the gelatinous
aril, planted in small pots, and ger-
minated under full sunlight. Peat


pots are ideally suited for this, since
they can be set directly in the field
without removing the plants from
individual containers. Two to three
seeds are sown per pot to compen-
sate for low germinations, damage
by insects, and removal of male
plants. Planting distance depends
on soil fertility, irrigation facilities,
and location. The home owner
should space his plants 8 to 10 feet
apart. The use of machinery in com-
mercial operations requires rows to
be 12 to 15 feet apart, but plants
should be 6 to 8 feet apart in the
row. Seedlings are set in the field
when 6 to 8 inches tall. They begin
flowering after 5 months, and only
one vigorous bisexual or female
plant is allowed to grow, in each site
all others being removed.
In south Florida, if plants are set
in the field in February or March, it
is possible, with good care, to har-
vest fruit in October or November.
This requires starting seedlings in a
greenhouse or under plastic, and
protecting them against frosts by
heating or sprinkler irrigation. In
cooler areas of the state, May and
June are better months for field
planting, and good yields cannot
be expected before the following
April or May.
The soil should have good
drainage. Papayas are very sensi-
tive to even short periods of flood-
ing. If not killed, they lose their vigor
and regain it very slowly.
Irrigation should be provided
during dry spells because a fluctu-
ating water supply may cause
growth retardation, flower, abor-
tion, and dropping of young fruits.
Papayas are fast growing plants

which require an abundant supply
of nutrients if they are to be highly
productive. Supplemental fertiliza-
tion is particularly important in infer-
tile soils. Nitrogen and phosphorus
are especially important. In Florida,
young plants should be started with
t/2 lb of a 10-10-10-5 mixture (with
30 percent of the nitrogen from nat-
ural organic sources) at planting
time or shortly after. This amount of
fertilizer is applied every 2 weeks
and should be increased gradually
to 1 /2 lb until the plants are 7 to 8
months old. Thereafter, monthly
applications should be sufficient,
unless unusually hard rains occur.
Fertilizer should be reapplied under
these conditions.
Green papaya ripens at room
temperature in about three to five
days. Ripe papaya can be refrigerat-
ed for week.
DOCi
A food safety note: If you still
have colored hard-boiled eggs in
your refrigerator from Easter, it is
time to throw them away. Accord-
ing to the USDA food safety guide-
lines, refrigerated hard boiled eggs
may not be safe to eat if kept longer
than a week. Hard boiled eggs left
out of the refrigerator for more than
30 minutes should also be discard-
ed. Boiling creates tiny holes in the
egg shell. These holes are too tiny
to see, but large enough to allow
bacteria to get into the egg.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any prescrip-
tion medications. Some drugs inter-
act badlywith foods that would oth-
erwise be considered "healthy."

TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist commended the
Florida Legislature for final pas-
sage of the "False Witness" bill,
which will make it a criminal
offense for anyone to knowingly
provide false or misleading infor-
mation to law enforcement offi-
cers as they conduct felony or
missing person investigations.
The Senate today voted unani-
mously to send the measure to
Governor Bush, just one day after


the House approved it unani-
mously.
The legislation, sponsored by
Senator Jeff Atwater and Repre-
sentatives Michael Grant and
Charlie Dean, was prompted by
the investigation into the disap-
pearance of Jessica Lunsford,
whose body was found not far
from her home. As law enforce-
ment officers investigated, rela-
tives of the man eventually
charged with the brutal murder


were not forthcoming with
authorities regarding his where-
abouts. Prosecutors concluded
they had no avenue to charge the
relatives under existing Florida
law. The bill would change that
and subject violators to up to a
year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
"In the last 24 hours, the Flori-
da Senate and House have taken a
major step to ensure that investi-
gations are not foiled by some-
one's misguided attempt to pro-


tect a suspect, said Mr. Crist. "Pub-
lic safety depends on law enforce-
ment receiving accurate informa-
tion quickly, and the False
Witness bill will help make sure
this happens. I commend the
sponsors for guiding the bill to
speedy approval and look for-
ward to Governor Bush signing it
into law.
The bill was approved 36-0 by
the Senate, less than 24 hours
after the House approved it 116-0.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Ossie Raulerson recalled'


outlaws and shysters IWSaZd.1IIm


By Twila Valentine,
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
EDITOR'S NOTE: From 1977
until her death in 2003, Indepen-
dent Newspapers of Florida was
privileged to have on staff a
superb writer and historian, Twila
Valentine: Mrs. Valentine wrote
much about the history of the peo-
ple and places around Lake Okee-
chobee and about the lake itself.
Together with Okeechobee's Betty
Williamson, President of the Okee-
chobee Historical Society, she co-
authored a book, now in its sec-
ond printing, "Strolling down
Country Roads in Okeechobee."
The following story comes from an
interview Mrs. Valentine conduct-
ed with Ossie Raulerson.
Ossie Raulerson remembered
South Florida "outlaws":
"There was a man named Mort
Manning and he was the first to live
on that ridge section of the lake. He
always cussed a lot. He had an old
parrot and he taught that old parrot
to cuss just like he did. It would say,
"By God, honey old fella," He was a
tough old man. The rumor was
that he got into a fight with a man,
took a pocket knife and cut him to
death. The man had a moustache
and when the wind blew his mous-
tache the old man thought he was
still alive, so he cut him some more
and that's why he was down here.
He was an outlaw and all the out-
laws came in to the ridge of the lake
because no one could get to them.
"The only way you could get to
the lake was by the Kissimmee
River or Taylor's Creek or if you
wanted to go on the lake, you
could co me in on the Caloosa-
hatchee River. All around the lake
where people live now, they had
old houses made of tar paper with
a little lumber. Law enforcement
men would not go there and if they
got in there, they couldn't find any-
body. You didn't even have a
wagon road, just a little path
though the elderberries.
"Basinger was big enough to
support two hotels then. I asked a
friend who lived there why in the
world they would come there. In
the 1880s they would come. My
daddy told me there was a feller
named Hunter and he bought all
that old prairie land north of
Basinger. There was miles and
miles of it and he built a little old
house up there andn' called it
Hunter's Camp about a mile north
of Zetta Durrance's north line up
there. But the people from up
North have always wanted a piece
of land in Florida. They'd come by
steamboat down the Kissimmee to
Basinger. Hunter's people had a
horse and wagon and they'd meet
them at the landing and bring them
up to the hotels at Basinger, about
two or three miles from the river.
The people would stay in the hotel


Special to INI/www.lamartin.com
William Hardy Walker's store in Basinger was there when lots
up on the prairie were being sold to people brought in by
steamboat by the Southern Colonization Company in the
early 1900s.


Special to INI/www.lamartin.com
This picnic in Basinger is dated 1906- 1910 around the time
when potential land buyers were being brought by steamboat
to Basinger by the Southern Colonization Company.

until the nest day. Then they'd carry
them out to this camp, some three,
four, five miles up, I guess on the
old Peavine Trail.
"One day this feller, Hunter, he
knew when there was a bunch
.coming down and he'd go out
there and dig up that old prairie
land and plow up a bed and he'd
bury big potatoesthere. Then he'd
go out there with the potato rake
and dig them up and show the
folks what fine big potatoes the
land would grow out there. Those
people were so vulnerable; they
didn't know there was supposed to
be a stem or a vine or anything to
go with them. He'd just dig this
potato up. He got some fruit trees
and he'd put them in and keep


them alive long enough while the
people were here. He sold acres
and acres of that old land out in
there. You couldn't grow anything
on it, but there was lots of people
who bought five, ten and twenty
acre plots.
"There was a fella named Fergu-
son out there at Seven Mile Gully.
He built himself a two-story house
along old Peavine out there and
stayed there for awhile. I never did
see him, but I've been up there
quail hunting many a time and
:we'd sleep on the porch of that
house when it would be raining or
something. We didn't go inside the
house for fear it would fall down.
"Of all the land sold out there,
there was only two houses ever
uilt there Those people would
pay the taxes on that land for
awhile, and then they would just
give it up.There was a lot of hunters
here at that time, and they'd pay
the taxes on it ten acres here and
ten acres there to come to hunt.
But there was a woman named
Bass who lived in Avon Park who
tried to keep them from hunting in
there, but I used to hunt quail all
over that place out there on that
prairie land."

Agriculture leaders read to children


GAINESVILLE The number
of Florida agriculture industry
partners who read in honor of
Agriculture Literacy Day this year
grew 18 percent to nearly 1,300,
Ag Literacy Day sponsor Florida
Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc.
estimates.
About 40 percent of this year's
Ag Literacy Day readers were FFA
students; 23 percent were Univer-
sity of Florida/IFAS Extension and
4-H agents, master gardeners and
students; 13 percent were Florida
Farm Bureau and county Farm
Bureau members; and 4 percent
were Florida Cattlemen and Cat-
tlewomen. The remaining num-
ber of readers identified them-
selves simply as educators or
volunteers without an industry
affiliation.
They read to more than 75,000
Florida school children as part of
Florida's third annual Agriculture
Literacy Day, Thursday, March 16,
which Florida Ag in the Class-
room and the Florida Department


of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices organize.
"Agriculture Literacy Day
wouldn't have been nearly as suc-
cessful without the help of our
industry volunteers," said Heather
Nedley, chairman of Florida Ag in
the Classroom and executive
director of Polk County Farm
Bureau. "We depend on our
grass-roots network of volunteers,
and appreciate everything they do
for us."
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson
applauded industry's participa-
tion.
"The best ambassadors of
Florida agriculture are the folks
who earn their living from it,"
Bronson said. "They can give stu-
dents-' first-hand knowledge of
their agricultural operations and
help explain to these students
where food, clothing and land-
scape materials come from."
Florida Ag in the Classroom
received a grant from Monsanto


for Florida Agriculture Literacy
Day this year. The grant money
allowed it to buy more books, and
develop lessons for each book.
Volunteers either read "Til the
Cows Come Home," a story
about a cowboy who uses and
reuses a beautiful piece of leather
and sees it as a sign of unending
possibilities, or "Pig and Crow," a
story about how a lonely pig who
loves to bake learns the value of
hard work and patience in a mod-
ern day fable. A panel of 12 Flori-
da teachers selected the books,
which they said would reach pre-
kindergarten through fifth grade.
Florida Ag in the Classroom -
a Gainesville-based, non-profit
organization funded by the agri-
culture specialty license tag or the
"Ag Tag" provided the books
free to volunteers who donated
them to the school library after-
ward. Each teacher received a les-
son developed for the book. Each
elementary school, student
received a bookmark summing


up the economic and environ-
mental contributions Florida
farmers make to the state.
Commissioner Bronson host-
ed a press conference in Tallahas-
see to kick off Ag Literacy Day and
sponsored a resolution that Gov.
Jeb Bush and other Florida Cabi-
net members adopted declaring
March 16 as Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day. National Agriculture
Week was March 19-25 this year.
Florida Ag in the Classroom is
charged with educating students
and teachers unfamiliar with agri-
culture about the industry's
importance' It provides curricula,
materials, grant money and pro-
grams I that help kindergarten
through 12th grade teachers
incorporate agricultural concepts
in their language arts, math, sci-
ence and social studies classes,
among other activities. Its
resource materials are correlated
to Sunshine State standards.

New Web site has



energy savings tips


TALLAHASSEE Saving
money on utility bills is as easy as
a trip to the Internet.
The Florida Public Service
Commission has unveiled the PSC
Conservation House Web page,
an interactive tool for helping to
educate consumers about ways
to reduce monthly utility charges.
Recent utility bill increases,
caused by the escalating cost of
fossil fuels used to produce elec-
tricity, have customers seeking
ways to conserve energy and save
on their natural gas and electric
bills. The Conservation House, is
accessible through the Commis-
sion's website.
Visitors to the Conservation
House website can pick up


money saving tips such as
improving insulation, using com-
pact fluorescent light bulbs, and
installing a programmable ther-
mostat.
"It has never been more
important for Florida utility cus-
tomers to take control of their
energy use," Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar said. "The Conservation
House gives customers informa-
tion they can use to make the
most of every dollar they spend
on utility service."
For additional information on
the PSC Conservation House,
contact Bev DeMello or Dick
Durbin at 850/413-6480 or go to:

Mumps: are your family's


vaccinations up to date?


TALLAHASSEE -Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
advises all Floridians to be sure
family vaccinations are up to
date for the measles, mumps,
rubella (MMR) vaccine in light of
the recent mumps outbreak in
the Midwest.
"We encourage everyone to
know the status of their vacci-
nations in order to ensure safe-
ty and resistance against many
diseases, including mumps,"
said DOH Secretary M. Rony
Frangois, M.D., M.S.P.H., Ph.D.
"Proper routine vaccinations
help protect individuals and
raise their levels of immunity.
While vaccines are not 100 per-
cent effective, they do offer the
highest form of protection
against harmful infections and
diseases."
Mumps is a contagious dis-
ease spread by mucus or
droplets from the nose or throat
of an infected person, usually
when such a person coughs or
sneezes. Transmission can also
occur if an infected individual
touches an object with unclean
hands and someone else touch-
es the same surface and then


rubs their eyes, mouth or nose.
Transmission of this type rein-
forces the importance of healthy
habits, including proper hand
washing, keeping fingers away
from one's eyes, nose or mouth,
and sneezing and coughing into
a tissue or one's sleeve.
Anyone who experiences
the following symptoms: fever,
headache, muscle aches, tired-
ness and loss of appetite fol-
lowed by the onset of parotitis
swollen and tender salivary
glands under the ears, on one
or both sides), should immedi-
ately contact their primary
health care physician by phone
and explain their symptoms in
order to receive proper instruc-
tions. Those individuals should
also avoid contact with others
until the cause of their symp-
toms is certain.
For additional information,
visit DOH's Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us, click on the
diseases and conditions tab on
the left-hand side and select
mumps from the list. To check
on a vaccination status, contact
your primary health care physi-
cian or your local CHD.
