Growth requires cooperation


By Patty Brant
LABELLE All the players
seem to agree: they all have to
communicate and cooperate to
manage impending growth, and
they have to start now.
The attitude was unanimous
at what had to be the first-ever
joint workshop between the
Hendry County School Board,
county commission and the
commissions of both LaBelle
and Clewiston Tuesday evening.
Representatives of all four
groups came together at the
Dallas Townsend Ag Building in
LaBelle to share publicly for the
first time a work in progress -
an interlocal agreement geared
toward making sure area
schools are prepared for the


"We should have been doing this a year ago."
Darrell Harris,
County Commissioner


expected influx of students.
School Superintendent Tom
Conner explained that represen-
tatives of all four entities have
been working on this interlocal
agreement.
Hendry County is actually
ahead of the game, using a
grant to hammer out a tentative
agreement, based on one used
by Hillsboro County.
A number of representatives
and interested parties felt that
template is not appropriate for
this small, rural county. Staff
from all four groups will meet


three times a year to hone the
agreement, with a public meet-
ing in December.
Education Consultant
Suzanne Marshall told the group
what they already knew: no
impact fees come close to build-
ing enough student stations so
this agreement must be the
basis of keeping schools viable.
Class size reduction require-
ments have caused a deficit in
Hendry County student stations,
Mr. Conner said, and develop-
ment will only exacerbate the
problem.


Reading by the pool: Montura Clubhouse teaches kids


INI/Nicole Curry
The campers of Montura Clubhouse visit the enchanting world of Japan during story
times given by the Clewiston Public Library on June 14. The children were treated to a
reading last week during one of the programs, and listened intently to the story.


These campers of Montura Clubhouse listen as the members of the Clewiston Library
tell them about the magic of Japan in one of several stories read to them last week.


Portables are not in favor
with the state, which is requir-
ing permanent buildings. Local
schools currently have a deficit
of 439 student stations, mainly
due to recent classroom reduc-.
tion laws. Classrooms built to
accommodate 24 students, may
now only accommodate 18 K-3
students or 22 4-5th grade stu-
dents, he said.
LaBelle Superintendent of
Public Works Michael Boyle
offered to provide information
on the city of LaBelle's impend-
ing permits and subdivisions to
the other groups on a monthly
basis.
The Bonita Bay Group,
which is planning develop-
ments in LaBelle, Clewiston and
the unincorporated county,


hoped it and other developers
could be a part of the process.
This interlocal agreement is
the first step in creating a school
element, which must be in each
local government's comprehen-
sive plan by 2008.
County Commissioner Dar-
rell Harris said, "We should
have been doing this a year
ago."
Clewiston Mayor Mali Cham-
ness believes in the process but
is concerned that the county not
kill the growth it needs. She also
felt the proposed agreement
was too restrictive for this area.
Both County Commissioner
Kevin McCarthy and School
Board member Rick Murphy
believed it was a step in the right
direction.


Training for



storm offered


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Florida res-
idents always love to see the
summer come, but it's a bitter
sweet love.
Even though it means
.going to the beach and no
' school for kids, the summer
brings one tremendous hor-
ror: hurricane season.
Knowing what to do when
hurricanes arrive is vital in
South Florida. However, many
of us do not know what to do
to get ourselves prepared for
upcoming storms.
Training is one way of
learning what to do. before,
during, and after a hurricane.
Many of us have lived and
breathed hurricanes since we
could remember. Sure, we
know how to buy flashlights,
canned food, and batteries,


and we know how to board
up our windows; but, do we
know how to deal with insur-
ance agencies or how to use a
generator properly?
A seminar on hurricane
training will be held at Clewis-
ton High School June 30 at
7:30 p.m. The training is being
sponsored by Grace Ewan and
Dakbrook of Labelle and is
open to all interested resi-
dents.
. Protection against -hurri-
canes is definitely something
to learn about here, since a
flurry of hurricanes has hit us
recently. The training sets out
to educate residents about
their options..
This training will teach you
how to secure your home
against flying debris, and

Community park to see

benefits in upgrades


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON .- Local" resi-
dents living near the Trinidad
Community Park may have
noticed a lot more construction
activity at the local site. With
many planned upgrades now in
progress, the city is preparing to
unveil a more attractive park in
the near future. This is the latest
in a series of projects aimed at
beautifying local parks.
"We have a lot going on for
being a small town," said Angie
Kelley, the city's recreation direc-
tor, "My goal is to make what we
already have better and I am
thrilled to be a part of it."


Some of the construction
upgrades at the park include ren-
ovations of the existing play-
ground equipment, a new picnic
pavilion with tables, a new soc-
cer field and a hiking and biking
trail.
With the project ongoing for
several weeks, the upgrades are
in their last phase of construction
according to Ms. Kelley. The last
upgrades pending are the basket-
ball court and the fencing, which
will hopefully begin at the end of
June with completion scheduled
for mid-July.

Recycling old tires
From the Editors of E/The Envi-
ronmental Magazine
Dear EarthTalk: Can old tires
be recycled? If so, where, and
what is the recycled material used
for? George, Rockville, MD
Old tires can indeed be recy-
cled, and thanks to concerted
efforts by state and provincial
governments from coast-to-
coast, as many as 80 percent of
them are these days across North
America. While some of these
old tires are remanufactured into
new tires, others are used in a
wide variety of applications
including railroad ties, rubber-
modified asphalt, athletic sur-
faces, insulation, plastic/rubber
blends used in a variety of prod-
ucts, even fuel.
The world's first tires were
made entirely out of natural rub-
ber, but the Southeast Asian
forests where the plants grew
could only produce so much. By
World War II most tires were
composed primarily of synthetic
rubber made from petroleum
products. Up until the 1960s, tires
were routinely recycled and bro-
ken down for use in making new
tires. But when imported oil got
cheaper, demand for recycled
synthetic rubber fell, and caches
of old tires with nowhere to go-
most landfills won't accept
them-began to sully landscapes
across North America. These old
tire stockpiles became havens for
pests and mosquitoes, and would
even occasionally burst into
flames and belch noxious chemi-
cals into the air.
Beginning in the mid-1990s,
state and provincial governments
in the U.S. and Canada led the
charge in mandating and funding
tire recycling efforts. In doing so

they helped spur the markets for
reprocessed synthetic rubber that
exist today. Now thousands of
companies across North America
specialize in turning recycled syn-
thetic rubbers into useful new
products.
American consumers looking
to offload old tires should take a
gander at the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA's)
"Management of Scrap Tires"
website to find tire recycling cen-
ters near them. Canadians can
turn to the website of the Canadi-
an Association of Tire Recycling
Agencies (CATRA) to find out
where to take used tires in any
province, including even the
remote Yukon Territory.
The EPA also offers free Busi-
ness Planning Guides for those
who might be looking to start a
tire recycling or re-manufacturing
business. The website Scrap Tire
News also provides a wealth of
knowledge on different ways to
get started.
Despite this encouraging
progress, NorthAmerica still faces
a backlog of hundreds of millions
of old tires, quickly piling up out-
side filling stations and in back-
yards near you. The EPA estimates
that 290 million scrap tires are
generated annually, representing
two percent of all solid waste, and
that some 265 million are sitting
in stockpiles right now. At the very
least, we could all take the advice
of Participating in Nature:
Thomas J. Elpel's Field Guide to
Primitive Living Skills and turn our
old tires into "sandals with a
50,000 mile warranty!"

Group seeks funding for lake cleanup


By Pete Gawda
-INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE A meeting of
;a multi-county coalition met in
Okeechobee June 15 to discuss
cleaning up Lake Okeechobee and
-how to fund the work.
The "County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee Estuaries and Lake
Worth Lagoon" also heard reports
on the condition of the dike, the sta-
tus of the fish population in Lake
Okeechobee and South Florida
"Water Management District
:(SFWMD) projects. ,
The coalition is made up of
county commissioners from Okee-
'chobee, St. Lucie, Martin, Lee,
Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades, High-
iland and Osceola counties.
Glades County Commissioner
Alvin Ward presented a far-reach-
ing plan to clean up the lake.
' "Every time I go to the lake I get
more depressed than the last time,"
:he said.
Commissioner Ward suggested
the coalition lean on the U. S. Army
:Corps of Engineers (COE) to main-
tain lower lake levels in order to
'help the aquatic plant life. (Plants
filter the water and provide safe
havens for fish.) He also advocated
subsidizing commercial fisherman
to remove nonnative invasive fish.
'He proposed mechanical harvest-
'ing of unwanted vegetation in.
place of chemicals. Restoring
'native vegetation was also promot-
ed.
The plan also proposed a pilot
project at a problem basin such as
-Taylor Creek/Nubbin Slough to
reduce phosphorous concentra-
tions entering the lake. Dredging
-mud from the lake bottom was
:included and replanting native
plants.
I "Cleaning up Lake Okeechobee.
'is a priority to this board," said
Commissioner Ward.
- Although costs have not yet
been determined, general funding,
|Heas were discussed including a
increase by SFWMD of 0.1 mil.,
tunds would be earmarked solely
pr Lake Okeechobee cleanup.
jhe mil equals $1 for every $1,000


of assessed value.) The current
SFWMD tax rate, unchanged for
many years, is 0.7 mils. It was said
that an additional 0.1 mil assess-
ment would raise approximately
$65 million per year.
"We cannot support a tax
increase," said Osceola County
Commissioner Ken Smith. "I think
this is bigger than 16 counties. The
Everglades belong to everybody."
"Can we ask someone else to fix
our problem?" countered Commis-
sioner Ward.
Other commissioners were in
favor of an additional tax.
"We need to act quickly and
start with us," said Commissioner
Sarah Heard of Martin County.
Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Warren Newell suggested
forming a subcommittee to review
funding sources. He said that with
the counties helping fund the pro-
gram, more respect from state and
federal agencies was likely.
Ernie Barnett, director of
SFWMD's office of policy and legis-
lation, felt it might be difficult to get
approval for a tax increase.
After some debate, the coalition
formed a funding sub-committee
consisting of Commissioners
Ward, Heard, Newell and Commis-
sioners RayJudah, Lee Co., and Joe
Smith, St. Lucie Co. to work with
SFWMD.
Okeechobee Co. Commission-
er Clif Betts said regardless of fund-
ing source, people need to be
assured that administrative costs,
will be low.
Dennis Duke, chief of the
restoration program branch for
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) local district reported on the
Herbert Hoover Dike. He noted that
seepage had first been observed in
1986.
"We do not disagree with any
technical data," he said of the
recent independent expert report
on the condition of dike, commis-
sioned by the state. (The report
was based on COE reports.) "Our
analysis of the condition has not
changed."
He said the lake level was cur-
rently being lowered by intermit-
tent pulse releases and that COE is
working on a revised lake regula-


tion schedule called Water Supply
and Environment (WSE). Mr. Duke
detailed several alternate WSEs. All
call for maximum releases at 17.25
feet. This is lower than the current
18.5 feet. The alternate schedules
also call for a lower minimum level
for the lake. Several public meet-
ings are legally required prior to
finalization in December 2006.
Effective date for the revised WSE is
January next year.
Mr. Duke said COE has an
aggressive dike inspection program
with daily inspections when the
lake level reaches 16.5. Repair
material is ready at 20 locations
around the dike and contractors
and COE are ready to respond to
any emergency, he said. .
, Mr. Duke'emphasized that;cohf-
trary to what had recently been
reported, repair work on the dike
near Port Mayaca has not stopped.
He said there was money to com-
plete this section and start on the
next section. He predicted it would
cost between $5 billion and $10 bil-
lion to bring the dike up to current
safety standards for a dam.
Recently, controversy has raged
over the COE's refusal to release
maps to the public which show the
extent of flooding if the dike fails.
The maps were finally released to
local emergency management offi-
cials, but COE cited security rea-
sons for their own refusal to make
them public.
That policy has now changed.
Mr. Duke stated local emergency
management officials may release
the maps to the public if they so
desire. He insisted that COE would
not compromise on public safety.
Larry Carter, assistant deputy
director of operations and mainte-
nance for SFWMD, estimated 10
years for completion of necessary
dike repairs. He urged voters 'to
pressure congress to speed funding
of the work.
David Roach of the Florida
Inland Navigation District (FIND)
also spoke. FIND is a special taxing
district concerned with the naviga-
tion channel in Lake Okeechobee.
He said that FIND can assist with
funding for general muck removal
from ithe lake.
Don Fox, biologist with the


Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC), present-
ed a dismal outlook for fishing on
the lake. Because of the sediment
stirred up by two years of hurri-
canes, the number of black crappie
and largemouth bass in the lake are
at record lows, he said.
Better news was reported by
Susan Gray, Ph.D. deputy director
of SFWMD's watershed manage-
ment department, in her update on
SFWMD projects. The district is
studying the feasibility of deep well
injection to store excess water. She
reported that the Lykes Basinger
Groves water storage project is
operational. The conceptual design
for an 800-acre Seminole Brighton
reservoir/stormwater treatment
area (STA) has been completed. (A
STA is a-planted area designed to
hold water to remove phospho-
rous and pollutants before it enters -
a lake or canal.) Ribbon cutting cer-
emonies have recently been held
for the Nubbin Slough and Taylor
creek STAs. Over 35 projects relat-
ed to Lake Okeechobee and Ever-
glades improvement have been
completed and a total of $487.2
million is being spent on eight con-
struction projects now underway.
"We have a lot to do," Dr. Gray
said. "We are by no means
through, but we are working hard."
After debate, commissioners
passed resolution urging the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency to
maintain the requirements for strict
enforcement of the Federal Clean
Water Act and not exempt transfers
of water from one jurisdiction to
another from permitting require-
ments of the National Pollution Dis-
charge Elimination System. The
resolution stated that water trans-
fers without proper treatment to
meet water quality standards
would be detrimental to the Ever-
glades and the Indian River
Lagoon. Commissioners Ward,
Newell and Ken Smith voted
against the resolution.
There was some discussion as
to how this would affect emer-
gency flood discharges. However,
Dr. Paul Gray of the Audubon Soci-
ety, contacted after the meeting,
said .the resolution would not affect
emergency discharges.

Chamber Buzz


Greetings all! Welcome to
another edition of the Chamber
Buzz.
As we get closer to the July 4
party that the city is planning to
throw, and that we hope you all
plan to attend, there is one more
element that can help make it a
memorable one. Music!
I remember hearing a while
ago, maybe even one of those rare
moments I was paying attention in
college, that music is a huge factor
in the way people remember
things. I know all of us can hear
songs and tie a memory to them.
Songs that make us remember
those fun summers as a kid, songs
that make us sad and cry, or those
that make us angry. Then there are
always those that make us both sad
and mad at the same time. Most of
those songs have to do with some
of my ex- girlfriends, but that is a
whole different column!
This year, as they have for the


last few years, one of our Chamber
members is trying to aid in the
memory making process. The
Glades Media Group is working on
a music tribute that will be timed to
accompany the 4th of July fire-
works display to be held at Sugar-
land Park. Glades Media is the par-
ent company that owns 99.5 WAFC
and 590AM Radio Fiesta. Yes, the
same 99.5 that I used to work for
before my move here to the Cham-
ber of Commerce. Preparing the
music was never an easy process.
However, I suspect the process has
not gotten a lot easier.
Speaking from first hand expe-
rience, there are a lot of patriotic
songs out there, but a lot of them
tend to be a little sad, at times too
sad for a celebration. The other
side of that argument is that you
want to give people who have suf-
fered a loss the chance to grieve
through song. They have to find
just the right balance of upbeat toe


tapping sort of things, and songs
that hit the emotional parts of your
heart. The final trick involved, is
that you do not want to play the
same songs year after year. Making
all those elements blend together
is not as easy as you may think.
But, song selection is the easy part
believe it or not. While I was with
99.5 WAFC, several members of
the community had the opportuni-
ty to be in the studio and see how
the commercials are made and the
mistakes erased, edited, and finally
deemed airplay ready.
Computers have helped and
have made the process faster.
There are still several tricks to mak-
ing it all blend so you do not have a
horrible transition from song to
song. Before anyone says any-
thing, yes I do remember what it
was like before computers did it
all. I officially bid farewell to my
20's last week and I caught the tail
end of the reel to reel/record player


era. Now, back on track! Editing
and blending becomes even hard-'-
er to accomplish if you are not,
playing the entire song and only;
want to use a small portion. I have',
seen the entire process take any-
where from two hours to ""0'
weeks. I have even seen changes.
made up to a half hour before the,
fireworks were set to begin. Thet
end result was normally the per-'
fect soundtrack for what we were.
trying to accomplish.
When fireworks start to light upL
the sky this year, and you are sitting
in your front yard, the back of your-
truck, or cuddling with that specialj-
someone- don't forget to have yourL
radio dial tuned to 99.5. As long asC
you are making those new memo-*-
ries, you might as well find a song.
that will help you remember it for4l
many years to come. See you at the!,
raft race this weekend, and rights
back here next week!


VFW Post 4185 hosts Flag Day ceremony


CLEWISTON Flag Day is
June 14. It is the day set aside to
commemorate the adoption of
the flag of the United States of
America, which happened that
day by resolution of the Second
Continental Congress in 1777. In
1916, Woodrow Wilson issued a
proclamation that officially estab-
lished June 14 as Flag Day, but it
wasn't until August of 1949 that
National Flag Day was estab-
lished by an Act of Congress, and
President Harry Truman signed
legislation making Flag Day a day
of national observance.
The U.S. Flag should not be
simply thrown into the trash. By
long standing tradition there is a
simple and dignified procedure
to dispose of the U.S. Flag. The
Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW)
and other veteran organizations
provide instructions on the dis-
posal of old, worn and damaged
U.S. Flags along with guidance
on flag disposal.
The VFW Post 4185 of Clewis-
ton, Florida held a Flag Day Cere-
mony on June 14 and disposed
several U.S. Flag with the proper
respect do the Flag of our nation.
As long as there remains two
veterans to come together there
will be a Veterans of Foreign Wars.
This evening we come together to
retire the emblem of our great
nation, Our Flag Old Glory the

we call it, it still stands for freedom

it and many still pay the ultimate
price to keep its meaning strong in
the hearts of men.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
(Service) are looking to the public
for help in conserving the Florida
manatee population. The agen-
cies are encouraging boaters to
report accidental watercraft colli-
sions with Florida manatees
through a new joint effort.
Agency officials want people
to understand that conserving
manatees is the goal and boaters
can help by voluntarily reporting
incidents involving these animals.
Anyone who strikes a manatee or
observes a manatee being hit by
a boat should call the Commis-
sion's Wildlife Alert hotline at 1-
888-404-3922. Boaters should be
prepared to provide the incident
location, weather conditions,
boat specifications, and other rel-
evant information.
"We want everyone to know
that people who are operating


their boat lawfully and responsibly
should not be afraid to report acci-
dental collisions with manatees,"
said Ken Haddad, Executive Direc-
tor of the Commission.
While the agencies continue
to try to minimize the number of
manatee deaths and injuries, the
goal and hope of this effort is that
the self-reporting of
manatee/boat collisions will
actually increase, with two signif-
icant benefits. Ongoing local,
state, and federal law enforce-
ment activities will continue
through the joint task forces.
The goals of this self-reporting
are two fold.
First, a quick response may
increase the chance of an injured
animal being rescued, treated suc-
cessfully, and ultimately returned
to their natural habitat.
Second, scientists can gain an
improved understanding of other
boat strikes. If scientists can


match the marks on the animal
with the type of boat or propeller
causing the wound, it will pro-
vide a better understanding of
what kinds of boats, motors, or
other circumstances cause the
most problems for manatees. In
turn, this may allow adjustments
in management practices to pre-
vent such strikes from occurring
or even lead to future design
changes in boats. Presently, there
are only a handful of cases where
the vessel that struck a manatee
is actually known.

CHS Spanish teacher bids farewell


After more than a quarter of a
century of teaching Spanish at
Clewislon High School, Mr. Lil-
lard has decided to accept a
position outside of the county.
The 25-ye -veteran teacher stat-
ed that he has enjoyed an
immensely rewarding career at
Clewiston High School which
was his first permanent job after
leaving Purdue University back
in 1981. Senor Lillard joined the
CHS staff after receiving a letter
from then middle school Princi-
pal Edward Upthegrove that
invited Lillard to become a
member of the Hendry County
teaching staff. Senor Lillard also
received a letter from the princi-
pal of the high school (Richard
Prowant), the level for which Lil-
lard was in training. After an
interview with both, he was
hired by both, but Lillard accept-
ed the high school position
because it was his training to
teach high school. After several
additional years, Lillard initiated
a Spanish Speakers program in
1985 for Hispanic students so as
to ease the burden on himself
and others that were to follow.
"The nature of instruction and
dilemmas of a Spanish class can
be concretely differentiated
between the cultural needs of
those of Hispanic origin versus
the educational requirements of
beginning a language in the high
school setting," stated the 2004
CHS Golden Apple winner. Lil-
lard soon became a resource
teacher for other high schools
far before the term resource.
teacher was popular. He taught
teachers how to incorporate a
Spanish speaker program in
their high school programs
while expanding student partici-
pation in the foreign language
program.
In addition, the resourceful
educator began teaching
Advanced Placement Spanish
courses in 1986 to upper level
students in an attempt to raise
the standards in his area. With
the help of Principal Kurt Squiti-
er, Lillard was able to plan and
implement a dynamic program
for many students. "I was always
taught that to be a foreign lan-
guage teacher included being an
advocate for learning languages,
throughout life. The earlier the
exposure to another language
the better," quipped Senor Lil-


Mr. Lillara
lard. "I have always enjoyed see-
ing students improve in learning
a language and their own self-
satisfaction in making the lan-
guage fit their need in life for
Spanish; particularly in light of
Florida's growing Hispanic pres-
ence." The Advanced Placement
courses were of particular inter-
est to many college bound stu-
dents that were able to master
the level of proficiency in Span-
ish necessary for the tests.
The growing Hispanic popu-
lation at CHS took advantage of
the classes and maintained an
80 percent passing rate which is
high despite students being of
Hispanic origin. Lillard
explained that the national pass-
ing rate for Hispanic students
hovered around 70 percent
whereas Clewiston's rate was
always 80 percent or above. The
reason for their success was the
persistence of presenting the
fact that it was only an exam and
that students need only convince
themselves of dominating the
material for the four hour exam.
This sort of mentality seemed to
eliminate the conflict of "my lan-
guage versus the standard lan-
guage". Interestingly enough,
Lillard always encouraged his
students to strive not only to
pass the test but to excel on the
test. "Passing was always a


given. How well they passed the
test was always our goal to
achieve," explained the 1990 UF
grad. I think that if an instructor
expects students to pass, then
the instructor's actions both in
delivery of material as well as
the depth of material delivered
will enable the student to excel.
In addition, students have to
have a lot of confidence in them-
selves. Half of the battle is moti-
vation. Confidence is a great
motivator! Too often we put
emphasis on the reduction of
failure as opposed to how well
one will succeed. It is a matter of
reversing the direction of think-
ing about success."
2004 was a great year for the
Spanish teacher. He was the
(Southern Conference of Lan-
guage Teachers) SCOLT Out-
standing K-12, Foreign Language
teacher, the American Associa-
tion of Teachers of Spanish and
Portuguese -Florida Chapter
(AATSP) Spanish Teacher of the
Year, the Florida Foreign Lan-
guage Association (FFLA) presi-
dent and Clewiston High
School's Golden Apple Teacher
of the Year. In addition, he has
been a member of several
national and state organizations.
He served as board member and
held offices on committees dur-
ing development times of impor-


tant issues. He remembers two
more importantly. He sat on
Florida's Board of Commission-
ers' committee that developed
the state benchmarks for foreign
languages (Goals 2000). Lillard
elaborated, "The very bench-
marks that teachers across the
state have to place in their plan-
ning of daily lessons were what
we put together back in 1995
through 1998. I was very sur-
prised to learn later that this
would launch an entire mission
of learning objectives across the
state and nation. We simply
were trying to put Florida in
compliance with upcoming
national legislation of standards.
Additionally, I remember serving
on the National Board for
benchmarking foreign lan-
guage's national teacher certifi-
cation. We had to determine the
classifications for grading the
entries submitted by candidates
for National Board Certification
in Spanish, French, German and
Japanese. I was involved in the
selection of the Spanish exam-
ples to fit the rubrics established
by the Educational Testing Ser-
vice. As I look back on it now, I
really did not know where I was
going next. I only know that I
enjoyed my travels and certainly
would do it all over again."
This Spanish Teacher feels
that his efforts to contribute to
foreign languages have been a
positive impact upon his stu-
dents and CHS. "Not only have I
been able to teach one genera-
tion of learners but I have had
the honor to teach some of the
second generation; the children
of my first students. I remain in
awe of the responsibility of
teaching and hope to make con-
tinued contributions to educa-
tion although in another educa-
tional setting. However, I will
never forget my experiences
here in Clewiston. I guess I kind
of grew up here after all," stated
Lillard thinking contemplatively.
He wishes Clewiston High
School faculty and staff innu-
merable successes in their
strides toward excellence. Senor
Lillard will never forget the 25
years he spent in Clewiston. He
arrived as a young inexperi-
enced teacher and leaves as a
confident veteran professional
educator.
Thank you, Clewiston! And
God bless

other essential information that
everyone should know.
Many people do not know
what rights they have when deal-
ing with insurance companies.
This training will teach you what
rights you have.
When the power goes out, as
it most certainly will, we will rely
on generators to keep us in con-
tact with the rest of the world.
This training will help you learn
how to set up a generator prop-
erly and to use it without over-
heating it.
Dealing with hurricanes is not
something we can put off until
the last minute. Hurricane train-
ing will prepare you to know
what to do before, during, and
after the storm.
For more information contact
Grace Ewan at (863) 675-1440.


Season
Continued From Page 1
The camp teaches different
.techniques of flag and dance
along with baton and pom-pom.
New routines for their half-time
show are included.
To get ready for camp, the
girls have been practicing the
fundamentals of spinning flags.
As any one of them can tell you,
this is a very difficult task; much
different that a baton!
The squad is working on
numerous fundraisers fund their
camp expenses. They sold
candy at the end of the school
year, sloshed through car wash-
ing June 17 in the McDonald's
parking lot and an have a bake
sale coming up on June 24 at U-
Save.
The girls are excited about
going to this particular camp
since it is their first professional
camp. Their sponsor, Barbara
Langford, feels that the girls will
have a great time at camp and
an even better time during the
year.

The upgrades to the park are at
no cost to the city, according to Ms.
Kelley. The project is being funded
primarily through a $150,000 Flori-
da Recreation Development Assis-
tance Program (FRDAP) grant.
Two other city projects, renova-
tions and upgrades at Sugarland
Park and the city's water park,
were also funded through a FRDAP
grant, said Ms. Kelley. Each of the
three projects received $150,000
for the upgrades.
A grand opening ceremony will
be held when the three projects are
complete; sometime in the end of
July of this year.

Seacoast National Bank has new Web site


New name, new image, new
website, Seacoast National Bank
has redesigned its Web site for a
refreshed brand identity.
"Giving the website an updat-
ed look is part of an extensive
process that comes with the ter-
ritory when a $2,5 billion pub-
licly traded regional bank with
41 branches changes its name,"
said Susan Bergstrom, senior
vice president of marketing.
The site, located at www.sea-
coastnational.com, receives on
average 3,500 hits a day. When


the bank completed its merger
with Big Lake National Bank on
June 5, the number of visitors to
the site nearly doubled to just
over 6,000 for the first two weeks
in June, creating another oppor-
tunity to create brand awareness
in the newly gained South/Cen-
tral Florida market.
The new website connects
Seacoast National Bank cus-
tomers to a wealth of personal
and business banking services.
The Bank's free online banking
service, available 24/7, provides


customers with balance
inquiries, wire transfers, cash
management, online bill pay,
online applications, calculators,
an online mortgage application
and the most recent addition,
online check images.
Over 20 percent of Seacoast
National Bank personal banking
clients and 15 percent of its busi-
ness clients bank online. Of
online users, 16 percent take
advantage of the free online bill
pay service.
"As online services such as


banking and bill pay continue
rise in popularity, marketing our
website and the online banking
tools are critical components to
providing value to our cus-
tomers' banking experience,"
said Ms. Bergstrom.
The operating arm of Sea-
coast Banking Corporation of
Florida (NASDAQ: SBCF) Sea-
coast National Bank has 41
branches in Florida and $2.5 bil-
lion in assets, and is one of the
largest independent banks head-
quartered in Florida.


CCCS has online Spanish bankruptcy services


Submitted to INI
Michael O'Keefe (Lab Director) and Pat Mason (Auxiliary
President) check out the digital scale which was purchased
with the help of money raised by the Ladies Auxiliary at
Hendry Regional Medical Center.


Hospital auxiliary donates

funds for lab equipment


WEST PALM BEACH Con-
sumer Credit Counseling Service
(CCCS) of Palm Beach County
and the Treasure Coast, a branch
of CCCS of Atlanta, Ga., and the
CredAbility Network, is now offer-
ing online bankruptcy counseling
and education in Spanish. This.
unique, completely interactive
service is available through the
agency's Web sites: www.ccc-
sinc.org- and at www.cccsenes-
panol.org.
The CredAbility Network of
CCCS agencies in North Georgia,
South Florida, East Tennessee and
central Mississippi is committed
to helping bankruptcy clients and
their attorneys meet the credit
counseling and education
requirements by the Bankruptcy


Abuse Prevention and Consumer
Protection Act, which took effect
Oct. 17,2005.
"We are happy to be able tb fill
the requests for Spanish service
we have been receiving since last
fall when we were approved to
provide bankruptcy counseling,"
said Jessica Cecere, president of
CCCS of Palm Beach County.
"Helping bilingual consumers
with critical financial issues in
their first language is an important
part of serving our service deliv-
ery model," Ms. Cecere said.
Increased service to bilingual
consumers is a logical progres-
sion for CCCS; the agency began
counseling in Spanish in 1996 and
has maintained one of the few
financial education Web sites in


Spanish since 2003, providing
helpful tips to more than 2,000
Spanish-speakers each month.
"We are also pleased to be
able to provide the required edu-
cation course online in Spanish,"
said Christie Hardcastle, Hispanic
outreach coordinator for CCCS
Palm Beach County. Credit coun-
seling within 180 days of filing for
bankruptcy protection and pre-
discharge education are both
required by new law.
Bankruptcy pre-filing counsel-
ing costs $50 per household and
is available online, via telephone
or in-person in 17 offices in Cred-
Ability service areas of north
Georgia, south Florida, east Ten-
nessee and central Mississippi.
The pre-discharge education


course also costs $50 per house-
hold and is available online or in
classroom settings in CredAbility
service areas.
As a leading national provider
of bankruptcy counseling and
education, CCCS is setting the
standard for bilingual service
online, over the telephone and
through its branch office network
and community education sites.
For the past ten years, CCCS Palm
Beach County has been providing
Hispanic outreach services, with
support from community and
financial organizations. The Cred-
Ability Network served more than
132,000 people in 2005; about 10
percent of this education and
counseling was in Spanish.


CLEWISTON Thanks to
the Ladies Auxiliary at Hendry
Regional Medical Center, the lab
now has some additional state-
of-the-art equipment. The Auxil-
iary has raised more than $6,000
towards the purchase of:
e. Phlebotomy Drawing
Chair: The new phlebotomy
chair enables patients to sit
more comfortably in a sturdy,
larger chair as their blood is
drawn;
Electronic Cell Counter:
The replacement cell counter is
being used to manually identify
and count white blood cells;
High/low thermometers:
Two thermometers were placed
in the different locations of the
laboratory to monitor the range
of the room temperature; and
*. Digital scales: This new.
scale is being used to weigh
specimens, chemicals, and
blood products.
The Auxiliary uses proceeds
from the gift shop to make pur-
chases for the hospital. In prior
years, purchases have included
surgical blood pressure moni-
tors and bed-chairs for family
members. If you visit the hospi-


tal lobby, you can admire their.
purchase from last year the
beautiful new furniture, lamps
and other amenities.
Consisting of approximately
ten volunteers who provide their
services as frequently as their
schedules will allow, these
women are recognized primarily
by their pink smocks. They work
behind the scenes and are not
often in the limelight. During
National Volunteer Week, the
hospital hosts an Auxiliary Tea,
and employees rotate through to
thank the volunteers for their
hard work'and contributions.
Although.-they are located
most often in the gift shop, the
Auxiliary has offered their assis-
tance in other departments as
well. They may be seen folding
towels, providing directions, or
making copies. These volun-
teers represent our hospital in
the most cheerful, helpful and
friendly manner. Patients, visi-
tors, hospital personnel, and
other volunteers are treated with
courtesy and respect all
times. The Auxiliary is truly an
asset to Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center.


Harbor Federal helps families keep in touch


FORT PIERCE Keeping with
its strong commitment of service
to each of the communities it
serves, Harbor Federal's 40 branch
locations are helping local families
stay in touch with loved ones serv-
ing in the Armed Forces overseas.
Mary Rose Cuoco, Assistant
Vice President and Branch Man-
ager of Harbor Federal's Virginia
Avenue office in Fort Pierce
worked with Garry Schwartz, a
local veteran, and the Fort Pierce
Police Athletic League (PAL) to
bring the program into South
Florida.
"If they [soldiers and their fami-
lies] can't be giving each other a
hug at night," said Ms. Cuoco, "at
least they can call each other."
In late March 2006, Ms. Cuoco
arranged for 14 Harbor Federal
branch locations in Martin and St.
Lucie Counties to become drop off
points for donated cell phones.
The program has been received so
well that Ms. Cuoco and Harbor
Federal extended the program to
all 40 Harbor Federal locations in
eight contiguous counties in East
Central Florida last week.
The collection drive is part of a
nationwide program started by


two Massachusetts children, 13-
year-old Brittany Bergquist and her
12-year-old brother Robbie. After
hearing a news report about a
local soldier who ran up a massive
phone bill calling home from Iraq,
the children decided they wanted
to help. They used $21.00 of piggy
bank money and collected snack
money from school friends to
open a bank account. The South
Shore Savings Bank, Hanover, MA
donated another $500.00 to help
them get started.
The cell phones and beepers
are collected weekly at Harbor


Federal offices. Schwartz picks
them up from the Virginia Avenue
location, packages them, and then
sends them to a recycling compa-
ny. The money made from selling
the phones and parts buys 60-
minute prepaid phone cards. After
all the minutes are used up, the
cards can be refilled online at the
program's web site at www.cell-
phonesforsoldiers.com. "To date
over 637 phones and 600 chargers
have been collected which
equates to more than 200 phone
cards," said Schwarti.


About
Harbor Federal

doors in 1934 and continues to
offer excellent financial security
with $3.2 billion in assets bank-
wide. One of the largest inde-
pendent banks in Florida, Har-

Parables show the call to all of us Doc Savvy's Pet Corner


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is a Biblical example
about two sons; one who tells
his father he will do some work
in the family vineyard but does-
n't do it, and the other who tells
his father he won't do what is
asked but then goes ahead and
does it. Matthew 21:28ff). After-
ward, the question was asked
was "Which of the two did what
his father wanted? (v.31)" and
everyone affirms "The first!"
Actions speak louder than
words!
It is curious that the Lord
Himself was asked to help out at
a wedding but refused to give a
hand. He attended a wedding
with his mother and disciples at
Cana (John 2:lff) and his moth-
er tells Jesus "They have no
more wine." This is a simple
statement of fact as it is written;
no call to do anything, just
telling about something that has
occurred. Jesus, however, takes
it to mean that He should do
something, and He tells His
mother "Dear woman, why do


you involve me? ... My time has
not yet come (v.4)." It seems
that what was expressed as a
simple state- S
ment has been .
heard as a
request to do
something. v j|
The request
brings a ques- /
tion with a
meaning of its'
own don't
want to partic- SamuelS.
ipate." Thomas
Now, the following verse tells
about Jesus' mother once more,
simply ignoring the rebuff and
telling the servants "Do Whatev-
er He tells you." .
It seems that the lady has a
son who has a need pointed out
to Him but He says He won't do
anything. Then, Jesus says, "Fill
the jars with water" with each of
them holding 20 to 30 gallons of
water. Soon, there is enough
wine to quench the thirst of quite
a crowd, and good stuff too!
In spite of the rebuff and
unwillingness, the miracle occurs;
the Son does the will of the moth-
er in this lesson and helps.


I suspect the father in the first
story from Matthew would have
known his sons well enough to
know which one would help out
and which one would not; and it
was evident in the story of
Mary's son that He would help
out too. She is a mother
endowed with some- wisdom;
she ignores the protests and the
complaints because she knows
how things will come out.
All of us listen to people com-
plain about taxes, or about the
high price of gas, or about not
wanting to do something and all
the while knowing the taxes will
be paid, or the gas will be
bought, or the job will get done
around the house.
There is another parable
when Jesus tells Peter to put
down his fishing nets for a catch.
Peter says "Master, we've
worked hard all night and
haven't caught anything."(Luke
5:5) but then adds "But because
you say so, I will let down the
nets." The catch was over-
whelming and they had to call
others to help them bring it in.
There is something about
human nature here; we com-


There's no use in reinventing the wheel


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"There's no use reinventing
the wheel." Literally, it implies
that the wheel works so well that
there is no need to look for
something new to replace it. Fig-
uratively, we know it means that
for whatever situation we are
facing, there is no need to spend
time and effort redoing some-
thing that has already been
done, and done successfully.
Even though there's no point
in reinventing the wheel, it's not
to say that people don't keep try-
ing. The Patent and Trademark
Office in Alexandria, Virginia has
received thousands of applica-
tions for wheel patents over the
years. These applications
include pages and pages of
descriptions, detailed drawings,
etc. and often involve designs
that call for the production of a
lighter, stronger, and better han-
dling wheel. None of the appli-
cations received, however, are
for replacing the wheel. They
suggest making it from different
materials, connecting it differ-
ently, or even adding a
whatchamaycallit, but all of the
applications include a circular
apparatus that moves itself and
whatever might be connected to
.it by rolling.
Some 2000 years ago, the
Apostle Paul shared with us
what keeps community moving
itself and rolling. It's found in
Ephesians 4:25-5:2, and like the
saying goes, "there's no point in
reinventing the wheel."
Yes, there are things we might
say differently today, but Paul's
prescription to, "be truthful, not


let the sun go down on our anger
and let the anger turn sinful, not
steal, work honestly, share with
the needy, not talk trash, deal
with others with kindness and
forgiveness, live a godly life, etc."
is the right
counsel for life
together in
community -
then and now.
Truth be
told, there are
a lot of people
who don't live
that way. We
only have to John
look at the Hicks
news stands or
watch the television to realize
that some people, politicians,
publications, and shows have
made trash-talk their currency.
Some have suggested that we
live in a society where the
wheels have come off and our
vehicle of life is up on blocks. If
that's so, maybe we need to put
the wheels back on. On the
other hand, maybe our tires are
okay, bt we havq, the wrong set
of tires fdr.the vehicle we are try-
ing to drive. We're a small
church tryid to b a'big church.
We're a pews-and-hymnal
church trying to be a keyboard-
and-tambourine church. Maybe
we need mud tires to help get us
out of the rut we've dug our-
selves into and move forward.
Or, maybe we just need fresh
wheels. In NASCAR, one of the
significant moments in every
race is the timing of when the
driver heads into the pits to get
gassed up and their wheels
changed. If the race is going to
be finished, the tires have to be

changed.
Then again, perhaps all we
need to do is check the air. I
know that our faith, like other
tires on our vehicle of life, needs
to be re-inflated from time to
time. It needs the renewal of
fresh prayer, the revitalization
that comes from delving anew
into the Scriptures, and the
restoration that comes from
being in worship and fellowship.
Other parts of our lives may need
re-inflating as well.
It isn't that we need to rein-
vent the wheels of community.
Paul described them 2,000 years
ago, and nobody has been able
to improve upon them since.
Perhaps we just need to focus
on putting them into action and
making sure they don't go flat.

plain, we bemoan, we belly-
ache, we show our frustration,
and then we act. The action
comes because we are asked to
do something by someone who
cares, or perhaps, because we
see a greater need than our own,
or perhaps because it is a calling
and what we are really about.
The call comes and it appeals
to the .Godly part in us; and we
are moved to overcome the less-
er, maybe more selfish part of
us. An urgent phone call that
comes in the early hours of the
morning or a call to provide
more than was budgeted for an
desperate need or rearranging a
schedule to accommodate
someone who is hurting; com-
mon to all of us and a testimony
to God being in us.
The passage about the wed-
ding in Canna has been a wit-
ness to me that even the Lord
Himself was not without His
moments of not wanting to
help; and someone at His side
who seemed to know Him bet-
ter than He knew Himself at that
moment. He saved the day; she
knew He would. How many
times I've been rewarded by the
"Thanks" or the grateful smile of
the person who took me a bit
out of my way. So have you, too!

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello
my name is Sara, and I'm thinking
about getting a little dog from the
pound. I am a professional and am
very dedicated to my field. My hus-
band is a professional too, and
works out of the home. He takes
care of so many of the every day
things in order to make my life easi-
er. He said he'd like a little dog too.
However, how do you know when
you are really ready for the respon-
sibilities of a little dog? We don't
want to make a rash choice.
Thanks for your time. Sara and
Josh.
Answer: Well hey! First of all I
want to say ... Your husband
sounds like a wonderful man!
Things sound like the two of you
really compliment each other.
Does Josh have a brother?
Ok now to answer your ques-
tion, taking on the responsibility of
a little dog is a lot more than just
kibble, walks and water. You have
to want to make the time for the
extra stuff. Stuff like time, attention
and love. All dogs need that to
enable them to grow. Just like kids!
The more you are able to give of
yourself, the more character, and
personality a dog will have.So, can
you do it? Yes! Do you have the
time? Yes! As long as you don't live
your life by excuses of why you
can't. Hmmm. Maybe were getting
a bit past the point of Veterinary

Citrus growers receive

canker compensation


U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) announced earlier this
nonth it would release $100 mil-
lion in citrus canker compensation
to growers. The announcement
came the same week it issued an
interim rule prohibiting Florida cit-
rus shipments to the citrus produc-
ing states of Alabama, Arizona, Cal-
ifornia, Hawaii, Louisiana and
Texas. Florida citrus will also be
banned from some citrus-produc-
ing territories including American
Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana
Islands, Puerto Rico and the U.S.
Virgin Islands.
, An Alabama official told
reporters, however, that his state
jvill not go along with the ban.
The ban affects fresh oranges,


tangerines, grapefruits and tange-
los, and is expected to begin with
the August harvest season.
USDA said it will seek public
comments before a final rule is set
in place.
Florida Governor Jeb Bush
called the ban "overkill" that does-
n't make scientific sense. He said
he would send state officials to
Washington, D.C. to try and per-
suade USDA to modify the rule to
allow shipments to at least those
parts of the states where citrus is
not produced.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson told
reporters he was worried that the
ban might lead to loss of export
markets, particularly Europe.


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is taking
steps to promote alternative ener-
gy and help position Florida as a
leader in the field of biofuels. Mr.
Bronson will host a conference to
bring together the various ele-
ments critical to successful alterna-
tive energy programs to be held
Aug. 31 through Sept. 1 in Orlan-
do. The event will serve as a forum
for researchers, industry represen-
tatives and policymakers to dis-
cuss the production, distribution
and use of biofuels, particularly
ethanol, in Florida.


"With gas prices near record
levels and demand for cheaper
and cleaner fuels growing, we
hope to bring together the neces-
sary parties to make production
and distribution of ethanol and
biodiesel a reality in Florida," Mr.
Bronson said. "The time for dis-
cussing the need for alternative
energies is over, now we must take
steps to bring the ideas to fruition."
Several companies have
already announced plans to build
ethanol plants in Florida and a
number of others have expressed
interest. Mr. Bronson hosted a con-
ference in January in Tallahassee
where he discussed his depart-


ment's "Farm to Fuel" program, as
well as the national "25 by '25"
program which seeks to have the
agriculture producing 25 percent
of the energy consumed in the
United States by the year 2025. Me.
Bronson's Farm to Fuel Program is
designed to assist Florida farmers
and ranchers in producing bio-fuel
crops to reduce the nation's
dependency on foreign oil.
"Locating ethanol production
facilities here will reduce our
dependency on petroleum, offer
a more economical alternative,
and create jobs and economic
development," Mr. Bronson said.
"In addition, this will expand


markets for our agriculture
industry in the form of energy
crops and productive use of agri-
cultural waste products."
The conference comes on the
heels of the Florida Legislature
passing comprehensive energy
legislation, much of which is
directed toward promoting
renewable energy and providing
a number of grants and incen-
tives programs.

Florida's climate leads to summer rains


By Dr. James O'Brien
Florida State University
TALLAHASSEE The drought
conditions that have plagued our
state for the last several weeks have
affected our homes, businesses and
daily lives in many ways, the most
notable being increased wildfire
activity, particularly along the 1-95
corridor in East Central Florida. This
dry weather is ultimately rooted in
the climate patterns that develop
over several months and stretch
from the Pacific Ocean to the Sun-
shine State. Climatologists ,by mon-
.itoring weather trends and the state
of the Pacific Ocean are able to pre-
dict seasonal climate patterns up to
several months in advance.
While it is impossible to predict
exactly when the summer rains will
come, climatologists examine his-
torical patterns and current weath-
er conditions to project the proba-
bility that those weather changes
may occur. Climatological studies
are not taken lightly, and many in
the field spend considerable time
providing forecast information


resources to our local officials, fire
personnel, farmers, and citizens.
Our data is drawn from weather
monitoring facilities located
throughout our state, reported in
real-time to climate and weather
analysts who can make changes
and updates to their analysis.
Historically, Florida has always
been noted for warm, dry winters
that lead to wet summers. As resi-
dents of this beautiful state, we are
well aware that our warm winters
provide incredible weather condi-
tions while our neighbors to the
north freeze, and our summers
produce rains that generate lush
plant life for our homes and farms.
Examining our seasons from a
multitude of factors is paramount
to climatologists. Among these fac-
tors, the surface temperature of the
tropical Pacific Ocean has the
strongest and most identifiable
influence on Florida's seasonal cli-
mate patterns. El Nifio refers to
warmer than normal Pacific Ocean
temperatures and is well-known
for bringing copious rainfall and
cooler temperatures to the state in


the winter and spring seasons. La
Nifia refers to colder than normal
sea surface temperatures in the
same region and corresponds to
warmer and relatively dry winter
and spring seasons. Neutral refers
to the ocean state when sea surface
temperatures are close to normal.
We have recently transitioned from
a period of La Nifia, which was pri-
marily responsible for the dry con-
ditions the state experienced the
last few months, to Neutral, which
normalizes weather in the summer
with warm temperatures and
increased moisture. As we move
towards the summer months, we
can all expect the weather to reflect
the hot and humid conditions we
have grown to love.
A closer examination of Flori-
da's current climate reveals that the
Neutral phase we are currently
under also corresponds to variable
temperatures and rainfall patterns
that average out closer to normal
over the course of the summer sea-
son. The afternoon rains we are so
accustomed to sometimes take the
form of frequent thundershowers,


which typically begin later this
month or early June and increase
in frequency as the summer pro-
gresses.
The current analysis indicates
that there is nothing preventing
seasonal thundershowers from
arriving on time and in adequate
.amounts. For example, over the
'last 10 years, Florida's precipitation
from May to June has increased
every year, almost seven inches last
year alone.
It should be reiterated that the
timing of exact weather changes is
difficult to ascertain, but what
should bring comfort to us as
Floridians is that our climate, our
long term weather history, is
steeped in a pattern of dry winters
and rain filled summers. Those pro-
jected rains will bring relief to Flori-
da's citizens.
Dr. James O'Brien is the Robert
0. Lawton Distinguished Professor
of Meteorology & Oceanography at
Florida State University. He also
serves as Director for the Center for
Ocean-Atmospheric Prediction
Studies.

Reno addresses Democrats


Former United State Attorney
General Janet Reno, was the
keynote speaker at the joint
Hendry County and Glades
County Democratic Executive
Committees' Jefferson Jackson
Dinner held at the John Boy
Auditorium June 9.
Ms. Reno, appointed by Presi-
dent Bill Clinton as the first
women to serve as Attorney Gen-
eral, spoke about her fond mem-
ories of Clewiston when she was
here many years ago, arriving by
boat. She and her family mem-
bers stayed at the Clewiston Inn
and she would always remember
the kindness of the people of this
city. She spoke of the exquisite-
ness of Lake Okeechobee and
surrounding areas, and the
importance of restoring its beau-
ty, while delivering a strong mes-
sage about education, and fact
that today's Baby Boomers rep-
resent the growing senior citizen
population and that we need to
recognize -the importance of car-
ing for our seniors. The over 130
people who attended gave her a
standing ovation.
Democratic hopefuls for gov-
ernor, State Senator Rod Smith,
and Peggy Davis, wife of U.S. Con-


Submitted to INI
Janet Reno (center) spoke at the Hendry County and Glades
County Jefferson Jackson Dinner. Also pictured are Ellen
Hawk Geake, Glades County DEC chair, and Grenville
Williams, Hendry County DEC chair.


gressman Jim Davis spoke to the
crowd. State Senator Skip Camp-
bell, the only democrat running
for Attorney General of Florida,
also addressed the crowd. Master
of Ceremonies, State Senator
Dave Aronberg, conveyed a posi-
tive message of a united demo-
cratic party. Mr. Aronberg, chair-
man of the Florida Mainstream


Democrats, urged a coming
together of Democrats of various
beliefs to strengthen the party.
Hendry County party chair-
man, Grenville Williams, and
Glades County chairwoman,
Ellen Hawk Geake, were very
pleased with the success of the
first joint venture of their organi-
zations.


Pogy Bill was colorful part of


Lake Okeechobee are history


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and his-
torian, Twila Valentine. Mrs.
Valentine wrote much about the
history of the people and places
around Lake Okeechobee and
about the lake itself. Together
with Okeechobee's Betty
Williamson, President of the
Okeechobee Historical Society,
she co-authored a book, now in
its second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
The following article came
from several articles and Mrs.
Valentine's notes about Pogy Bill
Collins and Albert Berka.
Albert Berka was a Vienesse
baker who came down to Okee-
chobee by way of Titusville
s'ometin'e in the latter part of
1-914 or ithe beginning of 1915
(l.o -- ears before John Kunkel
Srniill the Ni-U York Botanical
Garden and around the same
time as Ellis Meserve, who
opened a dry goods store and
married Faith, one of the Rauler-
son daughters). Albert opened
his bakery next door to Uncle
Charlie's barbershop on Seventh
Street (nowW. Second Street).
He did a good business and


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





even had a boat delivering his
baked goods to the fishing
camps along the lake and all the
way to Moore Haven. When
Conner's Highway (SR 70)
opened on July 5, 1924, Albert
Berka baked the cakes and pies
and breads for the barbeque
held at Mr. Conner's place. He
also supplied the bread and pies
to Mr. Bryant's "Rough House"
on Taylor Creek, just outside
town.,,, ", .-" .. "
Mr. Brvahll's Rough House
was a fa'osite hau.n of Pogy Bill
and his pals.
Pogy Bill Collins was a young,
head-drinking hard-fighting
roughneck who grew up hard
on the wrong side of the tracks
and usually, the wrong side of
the law. He came to Okee-
chobee probably around 1910
and found that the free-wheeling
life of commercial fishing on the


-~.77


lake offered the ready cash and
the weekend freedom to enjoy
his favorite pastimes: drinking
and fist-fighting.
Albert supplied the bread the
bread and pies which strong
liquors washed down the gullets
of fishermen as they gambled.
One time, Mr. Bryant failed to
receive the orders Albert sent
out in large baskets by his
helper. A group of drunken fish-
ermen set upon the poor errand
boy before he reached the
Rough House. The boy escaped
through the scrub, but the bread
and pies met anr untimely end in
the dirt of the road. Albert was
enraged.
He rushed to Taylor's Creek
to be welcomed by Pogy Bill's
remark to the boys, 'Here comes
Albert; now you're going to
catch hell!' Damages were slow
in being collected until Pogy Bill
assumed command of the situa-
tion, 'Anyone leaving' this place
admits he done it,' he asserted,
thereby gluing every foot to the
spot. 'Now,' continued the self-
proclaimed judge, jury and exe-
cutioner, 'every fella give Albert
$5 for his pies!' Hands dove
down into pockets and $75
came down on the table. The
baker was content.


Prepare for hurricanes now


By Audrey Blackwell
INI FLORIDA
With the start of hurricane
season, people are starting to
think seriously about stocking
up on supplies and which sup-
plies are necessary.
Below is a list of must haves,
along with tips on storage.
Prepare a hurricane supply
kit in plastic containers with lids
so they will be portable, yet
easy to store. Make a checklist
of necessary items and keep it
handy with the containers. Rec-
ommended items to have ready,
according to the Southern
Region Headquarters of Nation-
al Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration, (NOAA)
include:
cash or travelers checks;
lantern with extra fuel;
first aid kit with bandages,
scissors, petroleum jelly, anti-
septic spray, hydrogen perox-
ide, antacids, aspirin, ther-
mometer, rubbing alcohol and
anti-diarrhea medication;
matches;
mosquito repellent;
food and supplies (at least
a three-day supply): drinking
water (1 gal/person/day), food
(canned or dried requiring no
cooking or refrigeration), man-
ual can opener, disposable eat-
ing utensils and plates;
hygiene items: soap (hand
sanitizer), personal hygiene
items, towelettes or paper tow-
els, plastic trash bags;
documents: important
telephone numbers, bank.
books or account numbers,
legal documents (family
records of birth, marriage,
death, will, insurance, con-
tracts, deeds, etc.), credit card
numbers and companies, pass-
port, social security cards,.
immunization records, comput-
er information, family pictures,
household goods inventory;
flashlight for each person
with extra batteries;
tarp (for temporary roof
repair);
tools and repair supplies:
hammer, nails, ax, knife, pliers,
handsaw, screwdrivers, heavy
gloves;
sunglasses and sunscreen;
baby supplies: formula,
bottles, powdered milk, dia-
pers, medication;
e pet supplies: food, leash
and carrier, vaccination records,
food and water containers.


For more information about
hurricane preparedness from
NOAA, visit 'the web at
www.srh.noaa.gov.
The Red Cross website rec-
ommends folding beach chairs
for sleeping in case you need to
go to a shelter. For more, visit
their Web site at www.red-
cross.org.
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's Web site hosts a con-
sumer alert for keeping food
safe during and after a weather
emergency that was posted
ahead of the 2004 hurricane
season. The information was
made available to help reduce
the potential of food-borne ill-
ness due to food spoilage from
power outages and other prob-
lems associated with severe
weather events.
Steps they recommend for
food safety include the follow-
ing:
Keep an appliance ther-
mometer in the refrigerator and
freezer to help determine the
safety of food.
Make sure the freezer is at
or below 0 degrees F and refrig-
erator.is at or below 40 degrees
F.
Freeze containers of water
to help keep food cold in the
freezer, refrigerator or coolers if
the power goes out.
Freeze refrigerated items
such as leftovers, milk and fresh
meat and. poultry that are not
needed immediately to keep
them at a safe temperature
longer.
Plan ahead and know
where dry ice and block ice can
be purchased.
Store food on shelves safe-
ly out of the way of contaminat-
ed water in case of flooding.
Have coolers -on hand to
keep refrigerated food cold if
power is out more than four
hours. Make/get ice cubes and
gel packs ahead of time for use
in coolers.
Group food together in the
freezer. This helps the food stay
cold longer.
After the weather emer-
gency:
Keep refrigerator and
.freezer doors closed as much as
possible to maintain the cold
temperature.
The refrigerator will keep
unopened food safely cold for
about four hours. A full freezer
will hold the temperature for
about 48 hours 24 hours if it


is half-full and door stays
closed.
Food may be safely
refrozen if it still contains ice

Study to determine ideal amounts of lawn fertilizer


By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE Florida's 5
million acres of home and com-
mercial la ns may need fertilizer,
but its water resources don't so
University of Florida researchers
have embarked on a landmark
study to verify the effectiveness of
current state lawn-care recom-
mendations.
Funded by the state Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, the five-year, $3.5 million
study is UF's largest turf grass
research project ever, said Laurie
Trenholm, an associate professor
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences and one of
the study's principal investigators.
The research focuses on nitrogen
and phosphorus, essential plant
nutrients that pose significant
threats to Florida's water quality.
"We've known for years how
to produce beautiful turf, but now
we're determining how to do it
with the smallest amount of fertil-
izer," said Trenholm, who is also
head of the Florida Urban Turf
grass Program. "When we're
done, we'll have proven recom-
mendations that are right for
almost any landscape situation."
The study is based at three UF
research facilities in
Gainesville, Fort Lauderdale and
near Pensacola and addresses a
variety of grass species, soil types
and growing conditions, she said.
Current state recommendations
are found in numerous publica-
tions, including the just-released


third edition of "A Guide to Florida-
Friendly Landscaping," a hand-
book for homeowners published
by UF's Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods program; a manual for
lawn-care professionals, "Florida
Green Industries Best Management
Practices for Protection of Water
Resources in Florida;" and the lat-
est edition of "The Florida Lawn
Handbook," edited by Trenholm
and J. Bryan Unruh. Recommen-
dations are also available at
http://YourFloridaLawn.ifas.ufl.edu
and www.solutionsforyourlife.
com.
The current recommendations
have been used since about 2000
and were developed via collabo-
ration between UF, DEP and
industry representatives, Tren-
holm said.
"The recommendations,
which are known as best man-
agement practices, give individual
homeowners and professionals a
chance to prevent nutrient pollu-
tion," she said.
When fertilizer is properly
applied to lawns, very little nitro-
gen and phosphorus is wasted,
because turf grass serves as a fil-
ter to absorb the nutrients, Tren-
holm said. But if fertilizer is
applied at excessive rates or
heavy rainfall occurs shortly after
fertilizing, the nutrients often
leach through the soil into ground
water or run off into surface
waters.
Excess nutrients in ground and
surface waters represent Florida's
biggest water-quality problem,
said Eric Livingston, chief of


DEP's Watershed Management
Program. Nutrients reach Florida
watersheds primarily from so-
called nonpoint sources, which
carry water combined from multi-
ple locations. One example of a
nonpoint source is stormwater
runoff in a city's drainage system.
"Nonpoint source pollution is
hard to deal with because the
nutrients may originate from so
many places," Livingston said.
Fortunately, funding to combat
nonpoint source pollution is also
arriving from multiple sources,
both state and federal. DEP now
has about $28 million per year
available for research and imple-
mentation, he said. The UF study
is one of the first long-term
research projects established by
the agency.
"It's exciting to have substan-
tial funds available for research,
because there are so many
unknowns concerning nonpoint
source pollution," Livingston
said.
The UF fertilizer study began in
April 2004 and the first data were
collected about a year later, said
Michael Thomas, an agricultural
engineer with DEP's Nonpoint
Source Management Section'who
manages the research contract
between UF and DEP. Initial
results from the study are expect-
ed later this year.
"We will communicate find-
ings to the public as things move
along," Thomas said. "Eventually,
the findings will be incorporated
into publications such as the
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods


manual, DEP best management
practices manuals and model
ordinances."
Barbra Larson, statewide coor-
dinator of the Florida Yards and.
Neighborhoods program, said
homeowners can help fight nutri-
ent loss by selecting products
containing a high percentage of
slow-release nitrogen, using the
recommended amount of fertiliz-
er, and briefly irrigating turf after
fertilizing to ensure good uptake
by the roots.
Those guidelines are found in
"A Guide to Florida-Friendly Land-
scaping," Larson said. The hand-
book also explains how to calcu-
late fertilizer application rates and
gives specific recommendations
based on the turf grass species
and location in the state.
Florida's soils and climatic
conditions vary enough from one
part of the state to another that
multiple recommendations are a
necessity, said John Cisar, a pro-
fessor with UF's Fort Lauderdale
Research and Education Center,
who is leading the effort to verify
fertilizer recommendations for
South Florida.
"Generally, Florida has sand
soils that are very prone to the
movement of water," Cisar said.
"Here in the southern part of the
state we have a year-round grow-
ing season and shallow sand
soils."
In the central part of the state
there is some heavier sand soil
and turf is dormant or semi-dor-'
mant during the winter, said J.
Bryan Unruh, an associate profes-


sor with UF's West Florida
Research and Education Center in
Jay, a community northeast of
Pensacola. Soils in the Panhandle
contain sand and some clay, and
colder winters keep grass dor-
mant up to five months per year.
At the Fort Lauderdale center,
researchers are evaluating the fer-
tilizer needs of St. Augustine grass
and Bahia grass; in Gainesville, St.
Augustine grass and Zoysiagrass
are being evaluated; and at UF's
West Florida Research and Edu-
cation Center facilities near Pen-
sacola, Centipede grass and St.
Augustine grass are used.
Each location is hosting stud-
ies of both well-established turf
and new turf grass produced with
sod or seed, important because
the extent of the root system has
implications .for potential nutrient
leaching, Unruh said. Established
turf grass has an extensive root
system that can mine nutrients
from the soil, whereas sod has a
thin layer of roots and grass
seedlings have few roots at all.
"One question we'll be able to
address is whether it's wise to fer-
tilize before planting grass seed,"
Unruh said. "It's a common prac-
tice, but some fertilizer may leach
through the soil."
Researchers will also deter-
mine the best timetable for fertil-
izing newly established turf grass,
an important issue for builders
and homeowners in new devel-
opments, he said.
To help researchers collect
water samples to evaluate nutri-
ent loss, all turf used in the project


is being grown on carefully con-
structed plots with large, funnel-
like devices called lysimeters,
Unruh said. Water seeping
through the soil in the lysimeter is
channeled through plastic tubing
to a collection point where
researchers can take samples.
The nitrogen and phosphorus
content of the samples will be eval-
uated at UF's Analytical Research
Laboratory in Gainesville.
The UF study is a welcome
development for commercial
lawn-care providers, who want to
follow best-management prac-
tices but also need assurance that
the guidelines they're asked to fol-
low are based on the best avail-
able science, said Erica Santella,
region technical manager of the
commercial lawn-care providers
TruGreen-ChemLawn and Tru-
Green-LandCare in Orlando.
"I'm excited that there will be
some good, solid work to verify
the BMPs," Santella said. "As Flori-
da grows, water quality is going to
be a big issue, and it's in every-
body's interest that professionals,
as well as homeowners, take an
active role in reducing nutrient
runoff."

Pet owners must plan ahead


By Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
According to the American Pet
Products Manufacturers Associa-
tion 2003-2004 National Pet Own-
ers Survey, 39 percent, or 40.6 mil-
lion households in the U.S., own at
least one dog. Thirty-four percent
- or 35.4 million households -
own at least one cat.
The Lake Okeechobee area has
more than its share of pets.
With the official start of the 2006
hurricane season here, pet owners
need to begin making plans on
what to do with their pets in the
event storm heads this way.
Unfortunately, there are very
few motels that will accept pets ifa
homeowner is forced to evacuate
his/her home.
. Begin checking with motels out
of the area now, in case you must
evacuate. Some in the Orlando and
Kissimmee area will take pets.
Know where they are and how to
get to them if a hurricane is headed
this direction.
, Keep in mind, if power is lost to
most of the town, veterinary facili-
ties may also be without water and
power.
If you do not want to be separat-
edl from your pet, there are plans
you should make well in advance
ofanystorm.
- When preparing a hurricane
supply kit for your family, prepare
one for your pet as well.
. Make sure to include enough
rqon-perishable food, water and
whatever medication your pet may
be on for a month.
If you know that your pet
becomes overly agitated during a
storm, contact your regular veteri-
rqarian to see if he or she recom-
mends a tranquilizer or some other
way of calming the pet. A veterinar-
ian will not prescribe tranquilizers

for a pet he or she has never seen.
Have a sturdy cage or carrier
to comfortably hold your pet, as
well as a collar and leash.
Have all pet vaccinations up-
to-date, and keep records of these.
vaccinations in a safe place.
Take several good pictures of
your pets in the event you become
separated from them. You will need
the pictures to identify them later.
Place identification on the pet's col-
lar or halter. Some local residents
painted their telephone numbers
on their horses' sides in the event
the horses got out of their pastures.
On the subject of pastures, it is
advisable to leave your large ani-
mals such as horses, cows,
goats, etc. out in their pastures
instead of locked in a barn. Many
animals died needlessly during.the.-
last two hurricane seasons because
barns collapsed and trapped them
inside. Make sure that the fences'
and gates are in good repair. Have
clean water available for them.
Toss them extra hay to keep them
busy. Purchase enough feed and
medication to last for two to three
weeks following the storm, as feed
trucks may not be able to deliver
supplies. After the storm, check


/


your pasture. If it is flooded, move
the horses to high ground to pre-
vent hoof problems. If possible,
walk the pasture to check for any
debris that could injure your ani-
mals. While checking for debris,
also re-checkyour fences to be sure
that they are still intact.
If you have aquariums, keep
in mind that when power goes out
the filters, pumps and aerators will
not work. Fish can only go a short
time without air in their water.
Make a visit to your' local bait or
tackle shop and purchase several
fishing aerators. They normally
take two D-sized batteries for each
unit. When your power goes out,
use the aerators in your aquarium.
They saved a great deal of fish over
the past two hurricane seasons.
.....One. local aquarium owner
explained that he used two aera-
tors for his 55-gallon aquarium. He
changed the batteries three times
and kept all of his fish alive until the
power was restored at his home
eight days later.
No matter what you decide to
do with your pets, make your plans
now. Consult your veterinarians
with any concerns or questions
you may have.
