time in thirty years of' serving
the seniors of Hendry/Glades
Counties, Senior Connections
brought to the Hendry County
Commission the possibility of
closing its doors.
Tuesday night's county meet-

time commissioners learned
that Senior Connections is los-
ing its contract of state and fed-
eral funding through the Area
Agency on Aging (AAA)'.
Senior Connections Execu-
tive Director Christine Nolan,
and area Supervisor Cindy Gra-
ham, appeared before the com-
missioners to plead for their
help in salvaging any services
that they can.
Hope of Southwest Florida
has been unexpectedly award-


ed the contract for senior servic-
es in Hendry/Glades and
Immokalee.
In the last few weeks Senior
Connection staff has been
scrambling to rectify lapses in
paperwork that Ms. Nolan
explained was the main reason
that they were placed on proba-
tion byAAA.
Senior Connections have

The commissioners voted to
help finance three additional
months of nutritional services
for Senior Connections and
offered to support them with a
letter-writing campaign.
Commissioners also suggest-

prorate three months of the
annual $209,000 in nutritional
funding Senior Connections
spends in Hendry County. They


are to return with that figure to
the July 25 County Commis-
sioners meeting, which will be
held in Labelle.
Coincidentally, two of Flori-
da Senator Larcenia Bullard's
aides were present to give an
overview of the recent legisla-
tive session. Commissioner
Janet Taylor made the sugges-
tion that Senior Connections
should seek the senator's assis-
tance while moving forward.

Ladies Auxiliary given honorary plaque


Members of the Dept. of Florida
Veterans of Foreign Wars and
Ladies Auxiliary attended June
Convention in Daytona Beach.
Linda Meier, past District 13 presi-
dent and past auxiliary president,
represented a-uxiliary to VFW
4185, Clewiston. Fran Gault was
installed as the Dept. of Florida
President. Fran, her line officers and
chairmen will continue the work of
the ladies auxiliary and complete
the year successfully because "Vet-
erans Light Up Our Lives".
The Ladies Auxiliary to VFW
4185 received the only State of
Florida plaque for the Best Promo-
tion of the Cancer Grant Program,
third place certificate in American-
Sism, as well as numerous national
and department citations for partic-
ipation in programs and member-
ship.
The Clewiston Ladies Auxiliary
was instituted on April 2, 2005 and I
had the honor of serving as presi-
dent. During the past 14 months
members of the Ladies Auxiliary
4185 have volunteered hundreds of
hours to help veterans, their fami-


lies, people in the community in
need and have promoted patriot-
ism and encouraged students to
enter the Patriot's Pen, Voice of
,Democracy, Patriotic Art Contest
and Uncle Sam Coloring Contest.
Members have collected and dis-
tributed over $10,000 worth of
clothing, food and other basic
items to hurricane victims in the
Gulf Coast and Hendry, Glades and
Collier County, have collected,
bought and sent care packages to
troops in Iraq and Afghanistan,
donated toys to the Marine's "Toys
for Tots", donated money to the
Cancer Relay for Life, Ladies Auxil-
iary Cancer Aid & Research, VFW
National Home for Children, Oper-
ation Uplink, Criminal Justice Stu-
dents Annual Trip, donated to
schools raising money for play-
ground equipment and computers.
Members have driven veterans to
appointments, visited veterans
who were sick and bought and
used Buddy Poppies which are
assembled by veterans in Medical
Centers as a part of their therapy
and rehabilitation.


The Ladies Auxiliary had an out-
standing 2005-2006 year with the
excellent leadership of Sandy Ger-
many, past national president and
Barbara Murray, past department
president. In Florida, members vol-
unteered over 4 millions hours,
sponsored and participated in over
3,200 projects, raised and donated
over $891,000 to assist veterans,
victims of hurricanes, promoted
patriotism, raised over $6,000 for
bulletproof vests for police K9 dogs
and. distributed over 48,000 flags
and Americanism literature. Mem-
bers raised and donated over
$190,000 to cancer aid and
research, donated to Toys for Tots
and volunteered thousands of
hours visiting veterans in hospitals.
Barbara Murray's special project
was the "Make a Wish Foundation"
and six wishes were granted.
The Ladies Auxiliary was organ-
ized to 'Honor the dead by helping
the living' by assisting veterans,
their families and working with
youth and the community to make
this a better world. There are many
benefits to being a member, not


only will you be able to honor our
veterans, help those in need, help
raise money for cancer aid and
research, work with our youth, but
you will be able to learn leadership
and other self-development skills.

the organization, you will have the
opportunity to make friends, have
fun and be eligible for the Cancer
Grant Program; enroll in numerous:
insurance plans and save money
on travel services. Wives, widows,

Hospital advisory


By Sean Moore
Clewiston Chamber of Commerce
Greetings all! Sorry I missed
you last week, but we were busy
helping out with the 4th of July and
I missed my deadline to the news-
paper. For some reason they
wouldn't stop layout and printing
of the paper for little ol' me! Like
many of the places you all work,
and the town itself, things are a lit-
tle on the slow side right now here
at the Chamber. We do not have a
monthly meeting in July so I have
nothing to really report that arose
from those meetings. Our August
meeting is actually going to be
held on.the first Tuesday instead of
the customary second Tuesday, as
I will be out of the office during our
regular schedule. I do have a cou-
ple of projects that I am working
on for the near future that will ben-
efit all of our members and I will
seek support arid approval from


my Board of Directors at that time.
So if they are reading this, consider
yourselves warned!
We are continuing to accept
any contributions you may want to
make to our Chamber welcome
baskets. We have only given out
one so far, but it worked! Pam-
pered Pets was the first recipient of
our new venture and they joined
as a member the following week.
If you have not dropped off your
items, please do not hesitate to do
so. We anticipate several more of
these baskets being handed out in
the coming weeks as things begin
to pick back up in the business
community following summer.
You can contribute just about any-
thing you have from menus to
pens to notepads. I am sure this
goes without saying, but I'll say it
.anyway...this service is open to
Chamber members only. To join
as a member of the Chamber of


Commerce, please stop by our
offices at 109 Central Avenue. You
may also call and tell me to get up
off my rear end and bring you a
form, and I will be happy to do so!
If you are not sure what the Cham-
ber does for you as a business, just
consider us your PR firm. That's
the short answer anyway!
Our annual Chamber dinner
is set for September 19th, and
will once again be held at the
Clewiston Inn. They did a great
job hosting things last year and I
am a believer that you don't
mess with success. Tickets will
be on sale soon, so keep check-
ing back with us.
We are going to be adding new
board members in the coming
weeks. We have a few members
whose terms are expiring, and we
are looking to fill those spots. Plus,
their approval rating is so low due
to all the scandals...oh wait, that's


in Washington. Nevermind! Our;
search committee has been out'
recruiting potential replacements,
and they have compiled a list that;
will be appearing in your August!
newsletter. Please be sure to look;
over the list and mark your selec-<
tions. Every vote counts!
In closing, I would like to take a
second and thank all of you that
attended the 4th of July party last,
week. The crowd that we had for a'
first time event was tremendous.
All of the games were full of partic-;
ipants, the food was obviously a hit:
since most of it was gobbled up-
before the end of the day, and the,
bands sounded great. We had a:
meeting earlier this week to put a:
bow on things and turn an eye,
toward next year. If we are able to:
squeeze in all the things we dis-
cussed, the second annual 4th of
July party should be even better!:
See you next week!

Governor signs bill


affecting hunters


Last week, Governor Jeb
Bush signed into law a bill affect-
ing would-be, first-time hunters
and those wanting to hunt dur-
ing Florida's newly established
crossbow season.
Effective Aug. 1, 2006, any-
one 16 years or older and born
after May 31, 1975 can hunt
under the supervision of a
licensed hunter, 21 or older,
without having to complete the
state's hunter safety certifica-
tion. The newly established
"Hunter Safety Mentoring
Exemption" enables those per-
sons to purchase a Florida hunt-
ing license and hunt during a
one-year trial basis.
The new mentoring exemp-
tion was passed by the Florida
Legislature to help persuade
more people to experience
hunting. It is designed to encour-
age experienced hunters to
teach novice hunters about safe-
ty, ethics, wildlife, hunting skills
and respect for Florida's out-
doors.
Until now, everyone 16 or
over, and born after May 31,
1975, needed to complete the
hunter safety requirement
before they were allowed to buy
a hunting license.
"This should be a great incen-
tive for getting more people to
give hunting a try, and hopefully,
we can hook some of these folks
on the hunting tradition," said
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission hunter safe-
ty coordinator Bill Cline. "If a
novice hunter enjoys the sport,
we hope they take the hunter
safety course and continue the
experience for years to come."
Individuals taking advantage
of this try-before-you-buy
approach would have to take


"This should be a great
incentive for getting
more people to give
hunting a try, and
hopefully, we can hook
some of these folks on
the hunting tradition."
Bill Cline,
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
hunter safety coordinator

and pass a hunter safety class to
be eligible to purchase a hunting
license and hunt the following
year.
Another part of the law estab-
lishes a $5 permit fee for hunters
to participate in the state's new
crossbow season. The new per-
mit is similar to the archery and
muzzleloading gun permits that
also cost $5 and are required for
those hunting during the
archery and muzzleloading gun
seasons.
The crossbow season will
run Oct. 9-13 in the South Hunt-
ing Zone, Oct. 23-27 in the Cen-
tral Zone and Nov. 27 Dec. 3 in
the Northwest Zone. Hunters
will need to purchase the $5
crossbow permit to hunt during
these periods when only cross-
bows and bows can be used.
The new crossbow season is
offered on private lands only and
not available on any of the
state's wildlife management
areas.
For more information on the
hunter safety mentoring exemp-
tion or crossbow season, call
Tony Young at (850) 488-7867.

convictions, unless otherwise
stated. Anyone who is listed here
and who is later found not guilty,

dropped, is welcome to inform
the newspaper. We will confirm

Consumer counseling meets reality television


WEST PALM BEACH As an
organization that helps shape the
financial lives of consumers, Con-
sumer Credit Counseling Service
of Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast is always looking
for new ways to reach consumers
with critical financial lessons.
Beginning this Sunday, local CCCS
counselor and financial education
specialist Richard Clements can
be seen helping consumers as he
counsels clients for "Big Spender,"
a NorthSouth production for the


A&E Television Network.
Clements will help participants
examine their current troubled
financial situations and imple-
ment strategies to improve their
changes for financial success. "In
a process very similar to a coun-
seling session, we interview the
client, gathering budget, debt,
income, and spending informa-
tion," said Clements. CCCS then
develops a plan of counseling
advice which is incorporated into
the show's script.


"We also work with each client
in an on-air session, reinforcing
the recommendations of the
action plan," Clements added.
"After taping, we continue to track
each client, providing support and
monitoring their progress."
Since 1975, families have
turned to Consumer Credit Coun-
seling Service (CCCS) of Palm
Beach County & the Treasure
Coast for help with money prob-
lems. CCCS is a nonprofit, com-
munity service agency dedicated


to empowering consumers to
achieve economic freedom. A
United Way partner, CCCS pro-
vides confidential budget counsel-
ing, money management educa-
tion, debt management programs,

ing and bankruptcy counseling
and education.

vices and is a member of the Bet-
ter Business Bureau and the

Counseling (NFCC). Governed by
a community-based board of
directors, CCCS is funded by credi-
tors, clients, contributors and
grants from foundations, business
and government agencies. Service

ish. CCCS has offices in West Palm

lite service in Stuart and Port St.
Lucie, and offers around the-clock
help by phone at 1-800-330-CCCS

Back-to-school sales tax holidays is being planned


TALLAHASSEE -Governor Jeb
Bush is encouraging Floridians
and out-of-state shoppers alike to
take advantage of the state's sales
tax holiday, which takes effect on
Saturday July 22 and runs until
midnight on July 30. The sales tax
holiday is on books, clothing,
footwear, and certain school sup-
plies and is expected to save tax-
payers more than $39 million.
"I am delighted that millions
of Floridians will again have the
opportunity to save money dur-
ing the sales tax holiday," said
Governor Bush. "I'm particularly
pleased that shoppers will again
be able to save money on books.
Reading is a critical part of life-
long learning and success, and


the sales tax holiday is a great
way for families to save money
while encouraging reading."
Under the sales-tax holiday
law, no state or local sales tax will
be charged on clothes, footwear,.
books, and certain accessories
selling for $50 or less. School sup-
plies selling for $10 or less will be
tax-exempt as well during this
sales tax holiday period.
Savings include:
Shoppers will. pay no state
or local option sales tax when
buying books with a sales price of
$50 or less.
Shoppers will pay no state or
local option sales taxes on pur-
chases of clothing, footwear, and
certain accessories with a sales


price of $50 or less per item.
Shoppers will pay no state
or local option sales tax on pur-
chases of certain school supplies
with a sales price of $10 or less
per item.
"This sales tax holiday has
always coincided with back-to-
school shopping timed to have
the maximum impact for Flori-
da's families as they purchase
clothes, shoes, books, and sup-
plies," said Senator Daniel Web-
ster. "This is an excellent tax
break that helps all Floridians."
"This legislation has become
an annual opportunity to support
Florida families with a back-to-
school shopping tax break," said
Representative Ray Sansom.


"We're helping millions of Florid-
ians save money while preparing
for the new school year."
The sales tax holiday will save
shoppers an estimated $32.1 mil-
lion in state sales tax and an addi-
tional $7.2 million in county sales
taxes. Regular sales tax holidays
also were held in 1998, 1999,
2000, 2001,2004 and 2005.
"While Florida retailers have
become adept at administering
this popular holiday, the Depart-
ment of Revenue is preparing tax
information guidelines, including
posters and easily-accessible
information on our website, to
make the implementation go
smoothly," said Dr. Jim Zingale,
executive director of the Florida

ings of $2.6 million, or $0.36 per
share, during the same period of
the prior year. For the nine
months ended May 31, 2006, net
earnings were $6.4 million, or
$0.86 per share, compared with
$3.6 million, or $0.49 per share,
for the nine months ended May
31,2005.
Operating revenues during
the third quarter totaled $34.7
million, compared with $19.3
million for the third quarter of
the prior year. This increase was
primarily due to increased rev-
enues from citrus operations
resulting from revenues earned
by the Company's newly
acquired subsidiary, Bowen
Brothers Fruit, LLC ("Bowen").
Operating revenues for the nine
months ended May 31, 2006
were $62.8 million, compared
with $46.3 million for the same
period of the prior year.
Pretax income from opera-
tions was $2.9 million for the
quarter, compared with $4.2
million for the same quarter of
2005. The decrease was primari-
ly due to reduced cattle sales
during the third quarter of fiscal
year 2006 when compared with
the third quarter of fiscal 2005.
Addressing the divisional
results, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer John R.
Alexander noted that:
The Citrus division record-
ed pretax profits of $4.4 million


months ended May 31, 2005.
Hurricanes, citrus canker finds
and increased real estate devel-
opment in the central and south-
ern portions of Florida where
the majority of citrus is pro-
duced have combined to reduce
the supply of citrus for the past
two years, resulting in price
increases for citrus products
across the industry.
e Sugarcane and sod generat-
ed a pretax profit of $0.9 million
for the three months ended May
31, 2006 compared with earn-
ings of $0.1 million for the three
months ended May 31, 2005. For
the nine months ended May 31,
2006 and 2005,; the sugarcane
and sod division generated a
pretax profit of $0.6 million and
$0.5 million, respectively. Recent
price increases in the price of
raw sugar improved sugarcane,
profitability during the quarter
ended May 31, 2006, and
returned the division to its prior
year profitability levels.
Pretax profits from the sale
of cattle were $0.1 million and
$0.7 million for the three and
nine months ended May 31,
2006, respectively, compared
with $1.1 million and $1.8 mil-
lion for the three and nine
months ended May 31, 2005.
The number of cattle sold was
less during the first nine months
of fiscal year 2006 than for the
same period in the prior fiscal


to take advantage of record high
prices for calves, the Company
sold a portion of its calf crop that
would have normally been deliv-
ered to western feedlots. Calves
delivered to western feedlots
require an additional nine
months of preparation before
they are ready for sale. Due to
the sale of the calves in the prior
fiscal year as described above,
fewer animals were available for
sale in the current fiscal year.
The Company also sells
vegetable transplants through its
subsidiary, Alico Plant World,
LLC, as well as native plants
from its ranch location, and pro-
duces and sells corn and beans.
Pretax income from these oper-
ations totaled $0.1 million and
$0.2 million for the three and
nine months ended May 31,
2006, respectively. Income from
plants, vegetables and trees was
$0.3 million and $0.5 million for
the three and nine month peri-
ods ended May 31, 2005, respec-
tively.
"After last season's devastat-
ing Hurricanes, Alico and its
subsidiaries are rebounding
through the efforts of a dedicat-
ed staff and an aggressive busi-
ness plan that is designed to cap-
italize on opportunities as they
arise in each of our corporate
divisions," stated CEO John
Alexander. "We believe that con-
tinued quarterly growth is attain-


previously disclosed ongoing tax
audits, Mr. Alexander noted: "In
June of 2006, the Company
received notices of proposed
adjustment from the IRS in con-
nection with their previously dis-
closed ongoing audits of the tax
years 2000 through 2004. These
notices propose theories upon
which the IRS believes that
adjustments to the Company's
reported taxable income for the
years in question should be
made. The principal proposed
adjustment relates to the organi-
zation of the Company's Agri
Insurance subsidiary and pro-
poses four alternative theories
upon which the IRS believes that
additional taxable income
should have been reported in
the years under audit. Under the
alternative theories the IRS
believes that the Company's tax-
able income for the years under
audit should be increased from a
minimum of $11.8 million dol-
lars to a maximum of $119.7 mil-
lion dollars." The Company does
not accept the IRS position and
intends to continue to vigorously
oppose any attempt by the IRS
to impose an assessment in con-
nection with the Agri matter. The
Company's Form 10Q contains a
more detailed discussion of this
matter.

Do I Really Need All That Lawn? Deadline for ag award


By Ed Ayen
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is another in a series of arti-
cles written about the new area
urban conservation program called
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods.
Why do you really have all that
turf grass area? Was it there when
you purchased the home? Do the
rules and regulations of your
homeowners association specify a
certain amount of lawn area? Do
you want a nice grassy area for the
kids to play on? Speculation is that
the expansive lawn areas-were
started by the European aristocracy
as an indication of theirwealth. The
lawn was a status symbol that
spread to the United States when
our population became wealthy
and had enough leisure time to
emulate their European ancestors.
By far, the most questions asked
of me and the Master Gardeners
are in regard to lawn problems and
care. Should you assess the cost of
the care of your yard the turf area
will probably be the most expen-
sive. Of course, lawns do have their
good points; they are pleasing to
the eye and they act as a buffer by
absorbing runoff and pollutants.
If you are ready to let go of some
of your turf area; you may want to
do a phased approach such as


Fruit flies aboard the Space
Shuttle Discovery will help Univer-
sity of Central Florida (UCF) and
University of California, Davis, biol-
ogists learn more about how pro-
longed time in space could affect
human immune systems.
The flies will need little care dur-
ing their 12-day stay aboard the
shuttle, which launched on Tues-
day, July 4, from Kennedy Space
Center. Astronauts will only have to
replace their food tray once.
When the flies return to earth,
Laurence "Laurie" von Kalm, an
associate professor of biology at
UCF, will work with Deborah Kim-
brell, a UC Davis associate research
geneticist, to evaluate their
responses to bacteria and fungi and
compare them to the responses of
flies that did not go into space.
"The primary question being
asked is whether the immune sys-
tem is compromised from pro-
longed space travel," Mr. von Kalm
said. "Are they more susceptible to
infection than the flies that don't
travel into space?"
NASA provided Ms. Kimbrell
with a grant to fund the research,
and Kennedy Space Center is pro-
viding a lab where Mr. von Kalm,
Ms. Kimbrell and their colleagues
will test the flies for two weeks after
the shuttle returns. Scientists from
NASA's Ames Research Center,
Rice University and the University
of Nevada, Las Vegas, are also part
of the research team:
NASA's goal is to find out how
extended stays in space, such as a
trip to Mars, could affect the health
of astronauts, Mr. von Kalm said.
Fruit flies can help NASA move
closer to that goal because certain
aspects of the genetic makeup of
their immune systems and
humans' are similar. Also, a 12-day
stay in space qualifies as prolonged
for fruit flies because they only live
for about four to six weeks.
Ms. Kimbrell sought Mr. von
Kalm's help because of his experi-
ence working with fruit flies and
because of UCF's proximity-to
Cape Canaveral. Four of Mr. von
Kalm's graduate students and a
senior research assistant will join
him at Cape Canaveral to conduct
the post-landing tests.
Mr. von Kalm, who began
teaching at UCF in 1997, focuses


expanding the existing planting
beds outward, adding shrubs and
groundcover plants. If you have a
sunny area you may want to put in
a butterfly garden using native
Florida plants that attract them
such as Firebush and Passion
Flower (Maypop). Another idea is
to put in a "pine flatwoods" area
emulating the natural Florida
pinelands or a "hammock" area
with oaks and saw palmettos.
Low growing native plants are
often suggested as alternatives to
turfgrass. For more trafficked areas
try Creeping Charlie and Sunshine
Mimosa. Other groundcovers are
Blue-eyed Grass, Coontie, Loveg-
rass, Beach Sunflower and Railroad
Vine.
One of the better ways to get rid
of turf areas without doing the hot,
dirty work of digging out sod is to
cover the area with a good, heavy
duty ground cloth which will
smother the grass. This method
turns the grass into decaying organ-
ic matter. Put mulch on top to hold
the cloth down; then, when the turf
is dead, plant your trees and shrubs
through the ground cloth. For
mulching use pine straw, pine
bark, Melaleuca or eucalyptus
mulch, if possible; try not to use
cypress as that encourages the
deforestation and destruction of


most of his research on the effects
of steroid hormones on the devel-
opment of fruit flies. Because of
their genetic similarities to humans,
the flies provide a good model for
understanding how steroids can
affect the development of humans,
he said.
The flies on the shuttle will trav-
el in 10 small containers, each of
which is about the size of a com-
puter zip disk. Two separate groups
of flies will be kept in a Kennedy
Space Center research lab during
the mission.
To help researchers rule out
variables aside from gravity that
could affect the flies, one group will
be subjected to the same tempera-
tures and vibrations experienced
during space flight. The other
group will be kept in normal room
conditions.
The shuttle also will carry a
small amount of a fungus known
as "Beauveria bassiana," an
approved organic pesticide that is
not harmful to humans. Ms. Kim-
ball, Mr. von Kalm and their col-
leagues will examine whether the
reduced gravity makes the fungus
more potent.
Flies will be exposed to fungi
from the shuttle and fungi kept in a
lab, a move that will help deter-
mine if various effects are results of
the flies' weakened immune sys-
tems or the fungi becoming more
virulent in space.
The future direction of this
research will depend on the results
of the upcoming experiment and
the level of cutbacks in funding for
NASA's life sciences research.
The shuttle launch will be the
second NASA mission in the last
two months with ties to UCF
research.
UCF optics professor James
Harvey and two graduate students
designed the Solar X-ray Imager on
board the GOES-N satellite that was
launched in May. The new X-ray tel-
escope will help to improve the
monitoring of weather activity such
as hurricanes. It also will aid in
monitoring and predicting space
weather, which can disrupt cell
phones, cause blackouts, interrupt
airline traffic and damage or
destroy instruments on multimil-
lion-dollar satellites.


Florida changes to pest


control rules just in time


Florida's few remaining cypress
wetlands.
If you are putting in some new
turfgrass use Bahiagrass as it is
more drought tolerant and pest
resistant than St. Augustine and
therefore you will use less water
and pesticides.
The Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods program is being imple-
mented through your local County
Extension Service in Highlands,
Okeechobee and Glades County
and is partially funded from Clean
Water Act Section 319 funding from
the U. S. EPA through the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection.

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
is announcing that a set of new
rules has gone into effect that pro-
vide improved protection for con-
sumers Who contract with pest
control companies for termite
service.
All contracts issued by pest
control companies for termite
control must now clearly tell con-
sumers if the contracts cover sub-
terranean termites, drywood ter-
mites, or both. If they don't cover
Formosan termites, a particularly
aggressive form of subterranean
termite, the company has to clear-
ly state that.
"The average homeowner may
not understand that there are dif-
ferences in the types of termites
that can invade their homes as
well as differences in the kinds of
protections that address .each
insect," Mr. Bronson said. "We
have found that many people do
not realize they are not protected
against one or the other until their
home is damaged and it is too
late." Another important change
that goes into effect immediately is
that companies that perform only
"spot" treatments post that infor-


nation on treatment stickers in the
structure. Existing homes may be
treated prior to being sold, espe-
cially when pre-sale inspections
show some termite activity. Sellers
may opt for a less expensive spot
treatment rather than a full treat-
ment. Until now the treatment
sticker did not have to specify that
itwasa "spot" treatment.
"This is especially important for
home buyers," Mr. Bronson said.
"Buyers of existing homes may be
told that a house has been treated
before they buy it, but'not
informed the treatment was only
to a limited part of the building.
Now they will know if the treat-
Sment was full or partial."
Other changes in the contract
rule require that pest control com-
panies re-treat infestations covered
by a contract within ninety days
(180 days for multiunit structures).
Previously there was no time limit
on when the service had to be pro-
vided. Companies are now also
prohibited from denying re-treat-
ment or repairs if they were aware
of a construction defect or other
condition conducive to termite
infestation, such as a water leak
and did not inform the property
owner and allow them to repair it.

Planning ahead: Pre-approved or pre-qualified mortgages?


By Charles J. Kovaleski
President, Florida-based attor-
neys Title Insurance Fund
In today's home-buying world,
working backwards has become
commonplace when it comes to
mortgages. No longer are poten-
tial homebuyers only, searching
around for the right house before
they head to the bank for financ-
ing.
In today's real estate environ-
ment, it's become much more
advantageous for homebuyers in
the market to start the loan-
approval process long before
they've found a house. But should
you become pre-approved or pre-
qualified? And what's the differ-
ence between the two?
The question of which direc-
tion is best for you depends in
part on how much time you want
to invest in the process before
finding your home. Here is a look
at your options:
Pre-approved
mortgages
Pre-approval means the
lender has agreed to provide a
mortgage up to a certain amount,


TALLAHASSEE Tom Gal-
lagher, Florida's chief financial
officer, announced today that a
judge has ordered Florida Select
Insurance Company into rehabili-
tation. Under the order, the com-
pany's 70,000 homeowners poli-
cies are not cancelled at this time
and the company may continue
to write new and renewal busi-
ness while the department
reviews its financial situation.
Leon County Circuit Court
Judge Thomas Bateman ordered
Florida Select Insurance Compa-
ny into rehabilitation as a result
of the expiration of its reinsur-
.ance on June 30, 2006.'Reinsur-
ance is insurance for insurance
companies.
The judge also appointed the
Department of Financial Services
as receiver for the company. As
receiver for a company in rehabil-
itation, the department steps in to
administer the insurer's opera-
tions and assets, and to help the
insurer gain financial strength to
continue to doing business.
"Our first priority is to the poli-


even before a house has been
selected.
Pre-approval usually involves
completing a formal application,
providing all the necessary docu-
mentation related to employ-
ment, credit standing and finan-
cial disposition and, in some
cases, paying a fee.
Despite the time-consuming
process, the effort usually pays off:
A lender's pre-approval letter car-
ries more weight with a seller than
a pre-qualification letter. It's proof
of your buying power on paper,
which can give you an advantage
when you're among several buy-
ers pursuing a property.
Once you've been pre-
approved, you'll know exactly
how much you can afford to pay,
for a home before you enter into
a purchase agreement, and
you're usually in a better position
to negotiate with a home seller.
.In some cases, pre-approval
will allow you to lock in an inter-
est rate, which means your
lender will guarantee the rate on
your loan even if market rates
change before closing. Most
lenders will allow you to lock
your rate for 30 to 60 days, with
the option to extend the rate-lock


cy holders, and making sure they
have coverage during the hurri-
cane season," said Gallagher,
who oversees the department.
"This action will protect home-
owners while conserving the
company's assets, with the goal
of helping it regain enough finan-
cial strength to actively compete
for business."
Gallagher said that Florida
Select policyholders should con-
tinue to pay premiums in order
to maintain their insurance cov-
erage.
Policyholders who need to
report a new claim can contact 1-
888-700-0101. Policyholders who
would like to check on the status
of an existing claim should con-
tact 1-888-617-1145. For all other
inquiries, consumers may visit
the company's website at
www.floridaselect.com or call
Florida Select's helpline at 1-888-
.700-0101. Additional information
is available through the Depart-
ment of Financial Services at

g or 1-800-882-3054.


period for a fee.
A few things to remember
about pre-approval:
The approval is usually good
for a specified period of time.
Approval is usually subject
only to the borrower finding an
acceptable property
Pre-approval does not mean
you have a firm commitment; the
loan is still subject to a sales con-
tract and an acceptable appraisal
Make sure a lender's pre-
qualification program is under-
written
Pre-qualified mortgages
Being pre-qualified means
that a lender has determined the
maximum home price for which
it will approve a loan for you, but
does not specifically give you
approval for a loan.
The. pre-qualifying process
usually entails a 15-minute phone
call with a lender, who, based on
asking you some questions about
your finances, offers an opinion
about the loan amount you
would be eligible to borrow. The
lender doesn't ask for any sup-
porting paperwork to confirm
what you say, and the resulting
opinion is non-binding.
Still, pre-qualification has


some advantages: You'll come
away with an estimated monthly
payment and a price range to
shop based on the loan size. This
information can be used as a
guide as you begin the home buy-
ing process.
A pre-qualification letter does-
n't hold the weight that a pre-
approval letter does, but it does
indicate to a seller that a lender is
likely to give you a loan of a cer-
tain amount if your financial data
is verified.
A few things to remember
about pre-qualification:
The lender doesn't have to
give you a loan if your financial
and credit documentation does-
n't pass the scrutiny of the
lender's underwriter.
If a lender hasn't asked you
for any financial documentation,
it's a good bet that you have been
pre-qualified, not pre-approved.
With either mortgage, remem-
ber not to divulge to a seller how
much you have been pre-
approved or pre-qualified for.
Also, be sure to contact the lender
if your financial circumstances
change prior to closing, as it could
have a bearing on your pre-quali-
fied or pre-approved status.


Portobello Mushrooms make comeback


The once gourmet, elusive
Pdrtobello mushroom has
become a lot more common-
place in grocery stores in recent
years. An excellent source of
niacin, potassium and selenium,
portobellos are delicious served
in a variety of ways including the
all important stir fry. The taste of
portobellos is more pronounced
and much more "meaty" than
ordinary white mushrooms.
Preparing portobellos is sim-
ple. Wash carefully in cool water
and dry with a paper towel, but
only just before preparing, other-
wise, portobellos should be
stored in brown paper bags in the
fridge for optimum freshness.
They should last about a week to
10 days when stored this way.
You can get these fabulous
fungi in all sizes, small, medium
or large. The big ones are great
stand-ins for hamburger patties
and are amazing grilled on the
barby. Portobellos, like all mush-
rooms, have "gills" on the under-
side of their enormous cap.
Those black gills can get nasty
when you're cooking and put
black shmootz on everything
they touch. To alleviate this prob-
lem, eliminate the gills. Take a
small spoon and scoop 'em out.
It's easy to do and makes your
portobellos picture perfect!
Here are a couple of recipes to
get you started with portobel-
los-

New Hope Baptist Church welcomes new pastor


The New Hope Independent
Baptist Church, 638 Yaun Road,
Moore Haven, is happy to
announce that they have a new
pastor as of January 2005.
Pastor Darrel Branham and his
wife Joyce now live in Lehigh
Acres. They came to Florida from
Sandusky Ohio, where he pas-
tored the Welcome Home Church


of the United Baptist for 31 years.
Pastor Branham was born and
raised in Wouisa and Inez, Ken-
tucky. He is the fourth child from a
family of eleven children. His dad,
Samuel Branham, now deceased,
was the moderator of the Old
Zion Association of the United
Baptist, which consists of 31
churches. Pastor Branham got his


training here.
Pastor Branham was also
chaplain for General Motors for
six years and local 913 of the
U.A.W. Pastor Branham and his
wife Joyce just celebrated their
44th wedding anniversary.
The pastor and his wife have
two sons, Christopher, now a
retired veteran of 25 years, who


makes his home in Jacksonville,
N.C., and Mark, the youngest son,
who lives in Norwalk, Ohio, is a
metallargust and a welder with
the American Baler Co. in Belle-
vue, Ohio.
The pastor and his wife are
also the proud grandparents of
two grandsons, one great-grand-
daughter, two step-grandchildren,


and three step-great-grandchil-
dren.
If you are looking for a home
church that has old fashion val-
ues, but new ideas, old time spiri-
tual singing, and the word of God
straight from the King James
Bible, come and visit us. Our arms
are open to the broken hearted.

Chippie doesn't sing much anymore


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Chippie is one of my favorite
all time stories I like to share. Per-
haps the reason I like this story so
well is that there have been times
that I felt very much like Chippie. I
think we all have.
In the account I heard, it all
began when Mary decided to
clean Chippie's cage with the vac-
uum cleaner. Mary removed the
attachment from the end of the
hose and stuck it in the cage. The
phone rang, and she turned to
pick it up. Mary had barely said
hello when a-wumpa! Chippie
got sucked in.
Mary screamed, dropped the
phone, turned off the vacuum,
and opened up the bag. There
was Chippie sitting up and some-
what dazed, but still alive and


completely covered with dust.
Mary quickly grabbed the poor
bird, ran to the bathroom, turned
on the faucet, and held him under
the running water. Then, realizing
Chippie was wet and starting to
shiver, she did
what any con-
cerned bird
owner would
do she
reached for the
hair dryer and
gave him a
blast of hot air.
Poor Chip-
pie never knew John
what hit him. Hicks
A few days
later, a reporter who had initially
written about Chippie's encounter
called to see how Chippie was
doing. Mary told him that Chippie
was doing okay, but Chippie does-


n't sing much anymore. He just
sits and stares.
It's not hard to see why. Being
sucked up, dunked down, and
blown over would steal the song
from the best of us. One moment
every thing is calm and going well,
and we have a song on our lips,
then, a-wumpa! Something hap-
pens and we are sucked into a
dark abyss, dunked into the cold
water of reality, and then we are
blown away with the hot blast that
ruffles our feathers in all sorts of
odd ways. The life that had been
calm is now blowing gale forces.
Chances are if you are not in a
life storm today, you know some-
one who is. And somewhere in
the midst of these storms that
come into our lives, joy vanishes
and our song is lost. Chippie
doesn't sing much anymore. Nei-
ther do we.


So, what do we do to reclaim
our songs and our sanity? Let me
suggest two things:
First, let us remember that the
same voice that stilled the rage on
the Sea of Galilee can still the
storm in our world, and the same
voice that gave the birds their
song can give us our song again.
Second, let us anchor in God's
Word and promise for us. The
Psalmist claimed, "He lifted me
out of the slimy pit, out of the
mud and mire; He set my feet on
a rock and gave me a firm place to
stand. He put a new song in my
mouth, a hymn of praise to our
God. (Psalm 40:1-3) What God
did for him, He will do for us.
Claim God's promise to put a
new song in your mouth and in
your heart, and go forth and make
a joyful noise for our Lord, a
hymn of praise to our God.

On taking time to get there;


Paul's wisdom to Timothy


ALL STEEL BUILDINGS
ej "
V "" 1--


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Over the years, several persons
have come to me to express an
interest in entering the ministry. I
take it as a com- m
pliment that
they will share
this life-chang-
ing desire with ;
me and want to
explore the
steps to a spe-
cial life. This
past week, I cel-
ebrated forty SamuelS.
years of ordina- Thomas
tion as a Dea-
con, and will celebrate forty years
of priestly ministry in January. I've
found myself in many places I
never dreamed about being, doing
things that none of the preparation
trained me to do and serving many
peoples over time. I also shared as
Examining Chaplain and had a
"gatekeeper" function in one min-
istry of twelve years; something
that drew on all of my creative
energies and was a bit fearful at the
same time. It was an opportunity to
,say "Yes" but also to say "No" and
wonder always if God approved of
how things were being handled in
His name. Usually, churches have a
prescribed route of entry into the
ministry. When someone doesn't
want to enter by the usual route, it
raises red flags. When one person
told me that they could be'


ordained on the spot because they
knew God called them, and they
didn't need to go to seminary, we
disagreed. When another wanted
to read at hoie instead of taking
the prescribed courses in school,
we felt they would miss out on
much of the training that goes with
the fellowship of others in training
and the chance to share firsthand
with the leaders of the Church.
When one person refused to go to
school because they didn't like the
dean, and told us that nobody
could get along with him, we
agreed. We also pointed out that
ministry may be full of disagree-
able people but we are called to
learn to get along with them and
therefore a good place to start is in
training. The excuse was not
accepted and we didn't drop the
requirement to go and learn to get
along. When one person said they
could not take the regional exams
at the completion of studies, I
offered more time. There were
excuses; "My computer broke
down," and "I broke my leg and
am in a cast and can't sit down to
do them," and "people in other
parts of the Church don't have to
take them, why should I?" and
"We didn't cover that in school"
and on and on. Each time, my reply
was the same: "I'll give you more
time." Each time ordination was
delayed. Finally one day the person
told me that they were raised in an
orphanage and people used to
come and make decisions about
what was going to happen and


there was a great sense of loss of
control over life, and it all resulted
in blocking mentally when dead-
lines were set or things seemed out
of control. I explained the reasons
for the testing and commended the
person for having gained insights
into what kept the exam from
being completed, and recom-
mended taking some time off to
devote to doing it at a relaxed pace,
and then planning for ordination
when it was all done. Finally, after
trying to get.others o tell me I was
doing wrong, or having others try
to intercede, the person realized
that it needed to be done and the
work was completed. I attended
the ordination and attested to all of
the requirements being met. Paul
writes to Timothy "Do not be hasty
in the' laying on of hands (1 Timo-
thy 5:22)" It is good advice. The so-
called "hurdles" along the way that
seem frustrating to many teach us
about ourselves and prepare for
the challenges ahead. I think some
people confuse a call to be a more
committed Christian.with a call to
the ministry;' taking ones' time
about entering the ministry helps
clarify the difference. That's the
way it seems to be with many
vocations, too. I've read that satis-
faction comes from doing things
meaningful to others and things
meaningful to ourselves. It may
take a long time to get there, but it's
worth it; if it's a vocation in a
Church or a vocation in another
part of God's world.

Federal law needed for CERP projects


By MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida
The Everglades, Kissimmee
River, Lake Okeechobee and
associated rivers' restorations
which are part of the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP) cost money. The federal
government, through the Water
Resources Development Act,
appropriates federal funds annu-
ally to provide its 50 percent of the
money needed to complete these
projects. The remaining 50 per-
cent comes from local sources.
Lake Okeechobee and the sur-
rounding areas are all part of this
effort. To clean up the lake and
the rivers, provide flood control
and water supply are what this is
all about. The following South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (another key player) press
release, outlines part of this year's
funding and the need for it. The
remaining parts that pertain to
Florida are the Caloosahatchee
River (C-43) Basin Aquifer Storage
and Recovery project, Picayune
Strand Restoration, Water Conser-
vation Area 3A 3B Leevee Seep-
age Management Project and
Wastewater Re-use Technology.
But Congress must act. The
House of Representatives has
approved the 2006 WRDA. It must
now be approved by the U.S. Sen-
ate.
So you say you're not a water
manager, construction engineer,
environmental scientist or deci-
sion-making government official
and can do little to help our treas-
ured waterways that have lost
their luster? Not so. You can help
get much-needed restoration
projects in the ground faster by
supporting and standing behind
your local, city, county, state and
federal agencies responsible for
turning our liquid gems back into
healthy sparkle.
Florida's "Treasure Coast"
encompasses some of the state's
and nation's most productive and
most threatened estuarine treas-
ures the Indian River Lagoon
and St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Home to more than 4,300 species
of plants and animals, the Indian
River Lagoon is nationally signifi-
cant and unique in North America
- included in the U.S Environ-
mental Protection Agency's
National Estuary Program and a
portion of the lagoon is an Out-
standing Florida Water. The Indi-
an River Lagoon is recognized as
the most bio-diverse estuarine
system in North America.
However, the lagoon and estu-
ary have suffered from altered
water flow patterns and degraded
water quality. In the past few
years, hurricanes and excessive
rains required additional flood-


control water releases to the estu-
ary from Lake Okeechobee.
Freshwater lake releases,
which are regulated and author-
ized by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers, combined with excess
storm water runoff arriving in the
estuary through the drainage
basin canals, altered salinity bal-
ance, stressing the estuary's
unique brackish (slightly salty)
ecosystem. In addition, the lake
releases and runoff from fertilized
farm and neighborhoods around
the estuary's 827-square mile
watershed caused both an
increase in the volume of fresh
water and pollution levels enter-
ing the estuary and lagoon. Too
much phosphorus, a common
ingredient often found in fertilizer,
can promote the uncontrolled
growth of algae and vegetation,
damaging the ecology of the
lagoon and estuary.
Multi-agency
actions fixing the
problem
"While the releases to our
estuaries on both coasts are part
of the regional flood control sys-
tem that's made it possible for
most of us to live and work com-
fortably and safely in this region,
the system has severe limitations
and must be changed to end the
unintended environmental conse-
quences," said Karen Smith,
South Florida Water Management
District's Martin-St. Lucie Service
Center in Stuart. "The good news
is that a number of aggressive
actions are well under way by
many agencies at all levels, work-
ing together to make these need-
ed changes to get the water right."
A' huge 50-50 state-federal
restoration effort, called the Indi-
an River Lagoon South Restora-
tion Project, is being implement-
ed by the-South Florida Water
Management District and the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers to
reverse, the damaging effects of
pollution and unnaturally large
freshwater discharges, into these
ecologically vital water bodies.
The delicate balance of fresh and
salt water in the lagoon and estu-
ary will be restored, polluted
water will be treated and depleted
habitats will be revitalized.
The Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration Project will restore


Special to INI/South Florida Water Management District
The Comprehensive Everglades Restoration Projects require
funding by both local interests and the federal government.


the southern Indian River Lagoon
and St. Lucie Estuary and its asso-
ciated watershed. This will be
accomplished by reducing canal
freshwater discharge, storing
more water on land, returning a
more natural water flow to the
lagoon and estuary, removing 7.9
million cubic yards of muck, and
restoring upland wetlands. Major
construction features include
130,000 acre-feet of above-
ground storage reservoirs; 35,000
acre-feet of storage in storm
water treatment areas; 92,000
acres of restored natural areas
storage; diversion of watershed
flows; and sediment/muck
removal. Water quality, plant and
animal habitat, and estuary nurs-
ery conditions all will improve.
The Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration Project is part of an
even bigger, system-wide 50-50
federal-state plan to restore, pro-
tect, and preserve the water
resources of central and southern
Florida. This plan is known as the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan or CERP -
which includes several projects
throughout the vast Kissimmee-
Lake Okeechobee-Everglades
connected watershed, including
the Indian River Lagoon and St.
Lucie Estuary. When all of these
projects are in place, the natural
environment will be dramatically.

What is WRDA?
However, large-scale improve-
ment projects do not go far without
funding, and the passage of the
2006 Water Resources Develop-
ment Act is vital to continued
progress. WRDA provides federal
authorization for construction of
facilities and systems used to man-
age water resources, including the
Indian River Lagoon and St. Lucie
Estuary. This bill, which was
approved by the House last year,
would authorize construction of
the Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration Project and other fed-
eral water resource projects.
Once WRDA authorization is
secured, separate Congressional
.funding will still have to be sought
for the project's engineering and
construction activities. Approxi-
mately $1.2 billion split equally
between the state and federal gov-
ernment- is needed to implement
the Indian River Lagoon South
Restoration Project.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District can't wait and has
been moving forward to get these
much-needed projects into the
ground sooner while anticipating
WRDA authorization and credit,"
Ms. Smith said. "Just a few weeks
ago, the District, with support from


S..- .1


Martin County that generously
helped to acquire land, has already
started construction on the $330
million C-44 (St. Lucie Canal)
Reservoir and Stormwater Treat-
ment Area project, just one of 13
components of the CERP Indian
River Lagoon South Restoration
Project."
The new reservoir and treat-
ment area will provide relief to the
health of the estuary and lagoon
more than a decade ahead of
schedule under the state's Acceler8
Everglades restoration initiative. To
date, under the leadership of Gov.
Jeb Bush, Florida has invested $1.3
billion and committed an addition-
al $3.2 billion through the end of
the decade to clean up and restore
America's Everglades.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District along with our
federal, regional, county, city and
local partners need your support
to move WRDA 2006 through Con-
gress so that we can protect the
health and future of our treasured
water bodies of national signifi-
cance," Ms. Smith said.

Butterfly Basics


- Part Two: Luscious leave-


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Last week this column high-
lighted the kinds of flowers
needed by Okeechobee area
butterflies. This week our atten-
tion turns to the kinds of plants
needed to feed "baby butter-
flies" the food plants for cater-
pillars.
Butterfly Haven will open to
the public on Saturday, July 22.
Located at Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center north of
Okeechobee, many volunteers
have put in countless hours of
work at this unique community
garden. While few people will
be able to install a project like
this one a half-acre free-range
butterfly garden that is shaped
like a Zebra Longwing almost
anyone can encourage year-
round visits by planting some of
their favorite larval food
sources.
Caterpillar Habitat
-The basics of wildlife habitat
are the same: food, water, and
shelter. What makes butterfly
habitat more complicated is the
way these insects develop. The
pretty flowers produce sweet liq-
uid nectar that is used by many
adult butterflies as a source of
moisture and energy. But baby
butterflies we know them as
caterpillars are different.
Designed by nature to be eating
machines, they consume many
times their weight in foliage. If
the right kinds of leaves are not
present, the caterpillar can not
grow, and there will be no but-
terflies.
There is one curious excep-
tion to the plant-eating diets of
caterpillars: Harvester Butterfly
caterpillars are the only known
predatory butterflies in North


UNIVERSITY OF
FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
America. Larval Harvesters eat
woolly aphids, scale insects or
treehoppers that are found on
certain trees. The trees that host
this special food source include
only one locally adapted plant -
the Carolina or Pop-Ash. So
planting this tree to grow these
sucking insects for caterpillar
food may be essential to see
Harvesters in our area of the
state.
Florida Yard owners that wish
to have colorful butterflies know
that if they want more of these
flying jewels, certain plants
around their landscape will look
ragged. And if the desire is to see
certain kinds of butterflies, spe-
cific kinds of plants must be in
the area for egg laying and cater-
pillar chewing.
Butterfly groups
have similar needs
Butterfly relatives are
grouped on similar physical
characteristics. Often these
groups have similar larval plant
food needs. This will make it
easier for enthusiastic butterfly
gardeners to plan for the kinds
of creatures they wish to see in
their Florida Yard.
Some caterpillars prefer


leaves from certain trees and
shrubs common in our area.
Enthusiastic butterfly gardeners
don't need to add these to the
local landscape. For example,
larval Viceroys need Willow
trees, while Emperor Caterpil-
lars consume leaves of hackber-
ry trees.
Swallowtails need different
kinds of woody plants for their
habitat. Palamedes Swallowtail
eat any of the several Bay trees
.found in our wetland areas,
Tiger Swallowtails consume the
Bay leaves, but can get by with
Tuliptrees, Black Cherry or Ash -
which are not well adapted to
local areas. The Giant Swallow-
tail will eat any of the citrus rela-
tives such as the native Wild
Lime or Hercules Club, but to
the detriment of citrus growers,
they can also eat foliage from
Orange or Grapefruit Trees.
Among the Brush-foot butter-
flies, some larvae have specific
dietary needs, while others have
broad food plant choices. Amer-
ican Lady Caterpillars need sun-
flower relatives like Ironweed
(Vernonia) or Rabbit Tobacco
(Gnaphalium obtusifolium).
Red Admirals need various net-
tles to feed on and thank good-
ness that the locally found False
Nettle (Boehmeria cylindrica) is
not the stinging kind. Ever won-
der why the Painted Lady is so
common? Part of it is that there
are hundreds of larval host
plants for their caterpillars,
including many thistles, mal-


ing on the Internet a chart listing
local butterflies and their
favored nectar and larval plants.
Please let me know if you see
any additions or corrections to
this listing we want it to work
for our community.
Chew on this event
The public grand opening of
"Butterfly Haven" takes place
Saturday, July 22 from 10 a.m.
until 3 p.m. Admission for
adults, with no charge for chil-
dren 12 and under, will include a
snack and a beverage. In addi-
tion to a butterfly garden tour,
visitors also will be able to see
the other beautiful and exotic
creatures (panthers, bobcats,
gators and many others) found
at Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-


tion Center. Come enjoy gul'e.
tours of the hiking trail and srll
guided tours of the natur.- Iral,

race, Okeechobee, FL 34972. For
more information about the

tion on butterfly gardening,

lows, and various legumes.
Favored foods of many of the
small Grass Skippers are lawn
grasses, sedges, and native grass-
es. Others have very specific diet
needs such as saw palmettos or
cannas. Another group the
Spread-wing Skippers prefer to
eat legumes including weedy
beggar's ticks, clover found in
pastures, or even the beans in
our vegetable gardens.
A final group of local butter-
flies worth noting are the various
Sulphurs and Whites. Among
the three kinds of local sulphurs,
legumes are their favored diet,
so plants as the Cassias and joint
vetches (Aeschynomene sp.)
can be used to encourage these
yellow beauties. The White but-
terflies, such as the Cabbage
Butterfly, rarely need encourage-
ment. As their name implies,
they are fond of plants from the
mustard family, including culti-
vated cabbage, wetland water
cress, and the comm. Weedy
Shepard's Purse.
Butterflies can be encour-
aged by making some changes
in the way you care for your
Florida Yard. These "flying flow-
ers" can be more common if
some host plants can be spared
from mowing or herbicides.
Adding critical plants to your
Florida Yard can also be done,
but remember the basics of
growing plants still apply: don't
.put plants where they are not
adapted. After the Indepen-
dence Day holiday, I'll be post-

Lake Okeechobee was mystery to explorers


By Twila Valentine
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 was
taken from Mrs. Valentine's
"Lake Okeechobee's History."
For many years during the
early history of Florida, Lake
Okeechobee was hidden in myth
and legend. According to
Lawrence Will in his "Cracker
History of Okeechobee" (pub-
lished in 1964), the lake 'was
lonely, silent and mysterious, as
well. It was beautiful and sort of
inspiring, too.'
The first mention of the lake
was during the mid-1500s by
Escalonte de Fortaneda, a
Spaniard captured by the Calusa
Indians and held as a slave for 17
years. He claimed the natives
told him our towns containing 30
or 40 people on the shores of a
great lake called Mayaimi.
In 1564, two Spaniards who
had been shipwrecked on the
Gulf Coast made their way across
the wilderness to St. Augustine.
They reported that during their
trip, they saw "a great lake of
fresh water named Sarrope."
During later years, the mysteri-
ous undiscovered body of water
was referred to as Lake Mayacco,
Lake Macoco and Laguna del
Esperitu Santo (Lagoon of the
Holy Spirit).
Charles Vignoles, and English
engineer explored the interior of
Florida during 1823, and
although he did not find the lake,
he alluded to its existence in his
report of the St. Lucie River.
The St. Lucie River "... gives
the idea of having traveled al long
region from the west, perhaps in
the much-talked-of-Lake-Maya-
co, which like the fountain of
youth, has never been found," he
wrote.
The "Big Water" remained a


Recolections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





legend until the 1830s when the
U.S. Army pursued Indians to its
shores. In 1856, following the
Indian Wars, a Lieutenant Ives
drew a military map which con-
tained relatively accurate draw-
ings of Lake Okeechobee, the
Everglades and Big Cypress in
detail.
Lake Okeechobee, 730 square
miles, is the second largest fresh
water lake within the boundaries
of the United States. Only Lake
Michigan is larger. The lake cov-
ers a half million acres and offers
135 miles of shoreline.
Before being discovered by
man, the lake stood high and
clear, its waters broken only by
Kreamer, Torrey, Ritta and Obser-
vations Islands. It is a shallow
lake, the deepest portions near
the center of the lake, are no
lower than sea level. Before the
invasion of man, it was never
more than 20 feet at its deepest
part. The bottom of the lake was
hard muck, sand and shell.
There was an invisible divid-
ing line marking the differences
in the growth of plant life on the
shores of the lake. From the
south shore and half-way along
the eastern shoreline running
north, there were a solid belt of
tropical trees called Custard
Apple trees. These were. blanket-
ed with a Moonvine cover. The
stand of trees covered 32,000
acres, some two miles in width,
with a break or opening. The
woods ran from near Clewis-
ton's Sand Point to Port Mayaca.
While the shores, for the most
part, were black muck, the

shoreline did boast of some
sandy beaches.
On the eastern shore of the
lake, East Beach stretched north-
ward for some 18 miles. Across
the lake, Bid Bare Beach has a
wide sandy strand.
The lake's main outlet along
its southern and eastern shores,
was the overflow, trickling and
spilling over its entire south side,
across the custard apple ridge
and into the dead rivers there.
Water stood all over the land
from knee deep to waist deep
year 'round, except in the driest
years.
As the water continued its
flow southward, it entered saw-
grass standing in continuous
water and this "sea of grass"
reached unbroken to nearly the
state's southern tip.
At the southwestern arc of the
lake shore, the vegetation was
sparser, consisting of great
stretches of willows and elder
bushes. In this part of the lake,


the bottom was flat and grown
over with Flags, Bonnets and
high grass. When the lake rose
during heavy periods of rain, the
shoreline could expand as much
as six miles or so.
The northern shoreline of the
lake offered dense, crowded
stands of Water Oak, Cypress,
Pop ash, Rubber and Palmetto
trees. For a distance of some 30
miles north of the lake were
prairie lands and pine forests.
This prairie land was unbroken
except for some patches of
pitchy pines some 15 inches in
diameter, stretching their
branches up to 100 feet skyward.
Dotting the prairie were
numerous small pools which
achieved their names by the
types of growth found in them,
i.e. sawgrass ponds, flag ponds
and maiden cane.
Meandering over this prairie
scene for a distance of more than
100 miles was the Kissimmee
River.
