Painting to heal storm wounds


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Survivors of
hurricanes, get ready to express
your feelings through paintings.
Project HOPE has put together a
traveling art exhibit that allows
hurricane victims a chance to
express themselves.
Project HOPE is an organiza-
tion with many programs dedi-
cated to respond to disaster
recovery and survival needs
within Hendry and Glades


counties.
They provide crisis counsel-
ing during the recovery process
to help people cope with their
individual situations. They help
people return to a state of nor-
malcy after a natural disaster
has swept away their lives.
HOPE is involved with many
aspects of the community. Pro-
ject HOPE presents a puppet
show called "Heroes of the
Storm" at various organizations
in the community to help kids


understand how to cope with the
after-effects of natural disasters.
For the traveling art exhibit,.
our local Project HOPE is asking
survivors of the 1928. hurricane
and Hurricane Wilma to gather
and express their feelings
through paintings.
Even if most residents aren't
artists, everyone is encouraged
to join in the event and tell their
story. Take a trip down memory
lane and recall what it was like
to live through the hurricanes.


Watching the lake: Corps presents schedule


S .''"',. *- Ni Jose Zaragoza
The Army Corps of Engineers is presently hashing out a plan that will take into account
the condition of the lake and regulatory releases into nearby estuaries.,

Corps unveils its lake schedule


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON What is the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
(COE)doing to keep residents
safe in the event of a hurri-
cane, and the lake itself from
the schedule of water releases
that the organization has
focused on as of late?
That was the question at
hand at a meeting in Clewiston.
last week. Colonel Carpenter
of the corps presented a tenta-
tively scheduled plan (TSP) for
Lake Okeechobee and its sur-
rounding waters.
The meeting was one of
three workshops concerning
the Herberf Hoover Dike and
the Lake Okeechobee Regula-
tion Schedule Study (LORSS).
These workshops were hosted
in Clewiston, Ft. Myers, and
Stuart.
Lake Okeechobee is the


water supply for the areas
south of the big lake. With
.many more people coming
into Southwest Florida, the
hope is that the lake becomes
stronger economically to sup-
port the growing population.
Colonel Carpenter and the
COE are doing their best to
devise a plan that will take
effect beginning January 2007
that is right for the mainte-
nance of the lake, while keep-
ing a close eye on keeping res-
idents safe from the dangers of
a levee failure.
The COE considers public
safety its highest priority.,
Corps officials have said pub-
licly that they must keep a reg-
ulation schedule that does not
compromise the health and
safety of the people.
Of course Lake Okee-
chobee is not their only con-
cern when considering their
best course of action.


"Lake Okeechobee is the
heart of our body; but, our
body has arms and legs and
other parts that need to be
healthy also," Colonel Carpen-
ter said, referring to the
Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie
Estuaries. If we dump all the
bad things into the estuaries,
the lake will eventually
become weaker.
.The corps had several plan-
ning phases where they came
up with plans to control the
water level. After much debate
and decision they came to one
conclusion: a plan called
lbS2-m would be the best
route to take.
This plan was considered
the best choice to help all the
aspects of the lake. This
includes public 'safety, the
'Caloosahatchee Estuary, the
St. Lucie Estuary, Lake Okee-
See Schedule Page 12


HOPE asks what better way
to show someone what it was
like to experience a hurricane of
that magnitude? These paint-
ings can serve to provide an
insight into what helped them
cope with the loss they suffered
during the storms.
Project HOPE officials feel
that the painting activity will
help people grow and heal and
learn to live with the disasters.
The project will allow those sur-
vivors to provide invaluable


information to future genera-
tions and may someday serve to
help them cope.
The art collected in the proj-
ect will be hosted at the Clewis-
ton Museum's during the grand
opening in September. The sur-
vivor stories will take place the
following day along with other
educational disaster awareness
activities.

Montura man



arrested on



drug charges


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY-A Mon-
tura man was arrested on drug
charges lastweek in LaBelle.
Daniel Ortiz, 26, was spot-
ted July 4 by deputies on Semi-
nole Avenue, an area in
LaBelle reportedly known for
its drug activity.
A deputy approached the
man to question him about his
presence on the street when the
suspect took off on foot into a
nearby wooded area, according
to .a -press- release .from, the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office.
Deputies scoured the area in
search of Ortiz, actively
patrolling when they spotted


him again on Seminole Avenue.
When he was approached,
Ortiz told deputies he did now
Know why he had run from
them, saying, "No reason. I
don't know."
After giving his consent to a
search, Ortiz was allegedly
Found to be in possession of a
Cigar tube with 12 pieces of what
appeared to be crack cocaine
hidden, inside. A field test con-
firmed the substance.
Ortiz was placed in custody
I and taken to the Hendry
County Jail.
- -. His charges- include felony
possession of narcotics para-
phernalia and possession of
crack cocaine with intent to sell.
Bond was set at $25,000.


Volunteers



sought to help.



the elderly


By Nicole Cuny
CLEWISTON The com-
munity sometimes makes the
effort to reach out to help the
senior citizens in any way it
can. Some people volunteer to
bring them groceries or clean
their houses.
But many of the elderly peo-
ple do not have someone they
can depend on consistently to


help them.
That is where the Center for
Independent Living comes in
and more specifically that is
where you can come in.
The center helps elderly citi-
zens with disabilities more eas-
ily live their lives, without the
everyday frustrations of being
alone.

Landscaping project


gets under way


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Hendry
County and the City of Clewis-
ton have partnered in develop-
ing and implementing a land-
scaping project that should
increase the visual aesthetic to
the entrance to the city.
Perhaps the first thing most
visitors to a city notice is how
well the entrances and gate-
ways are maintained, and coun-
ty and city officials hope to
make that first impression an
excellent one with the project.
Focusing on the east and
west gateways of the city, on
U.S. 27, the project aims to pro-
vide a quick visual indicator that
officials hope will be reflective
of the type of stay they can look
forward to in Clewiston.
Decorative and eye-catching
landscaping designs will set the
areas off in a beautiful display
just off the railroad tracks on
Berner Road to the entrance to


the city in the east.
The project, several years in
development, will be funded
almost completely by a Depart-
ment of Transportation
Enhancement Grant Fund
administered through Hendry
County.
The project has experienced
some setbacks according to offi-
cials, mainly because the first
round of bids returned prices
much higher than had been ini-
tially anticipated. Officials reject-
ed the first batch of bids and
voted to re-bid the project.
When the second group of
bids came in, officials decided
to select the most competitive,
though it still came in about
$1,200 over the budget.
The county recommended
making the selection and having
the city fill in the last funding
gap so that the project could
proceed and finally get under-

NOAA reports record weather marks first


Body in park identified


The average temperature for
the continental United States from
January through June 2006 was
the warmest first half of any year
since records began in 1895,
according to scientists at the NOAA
National Climatic Data Center in
Asheville, N.C. Last month was the
second warmest June on record
and nationally averaged precipita-
tion was below average. The con-
tinuation of below normal precipi-
tation in certain regions and much
warmer-than-average tempera-
tures expanded moderate-to-
extreme drought conditions in the
contiguous U.S. However, much of
the Northeast experienced severe
flooding and record rainfall during
the last week of June. The global
surface temperature was second
warmest on record for June.
U.S. Temperature
Highlights
The average January-June tem-
perature for the contiguous United
States (based on preliminary data)
was 51.8 degrees F (11.0 degrees
C), or 3.4 degrees F (1.8 degrees C)
above the 20th century (1901-
2000) average. Five states (Texas,
Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and
Missouri) experienced record
warmth for the period. No state
was near or cooler than average.
The nation observed the sec-
ond warmest June on record this
year. In the West, 11 states were
much warmer than average. Only
five states (Kentucky, Ohio, Penn-
sylvania, West Virginia and South
Carolina) were cooler than normal
for the month.
The June statewide average
temperature for Alaska was near
average, and January-June was
0.55 degrees F (0.30 degrees C)
cooler than the 1971-2000 average.
U.S. Precipitation Highlights
The average precipitation for
June 2006 across the continental
U.S. was 0.3 in. (8 mm) below the
20th century average.
Record rainfall in parts of the
Northeast during May and June
contributed to the wetter-than-nor-
mal first half of the year for that
region. Heavy precipitation along
the East Coast from June 22-28

resulted in widespread flooding.
For example, Washington's Rea-
gan National Airport reported
11.37 inches (289 mm) during that
time and a record June total of
14.02 inches (356 mm). More than
10 inches (254 mm) of rain fell in
Federalsburg on Maryland's East-
ern Shore in a 24-hour period. In
June, 45 percent of the contiguous
U.S. was in moderate-to-extreme
drought (based on the Palmer
Drought Index), an increase of 6
percent from May, while 27 per-
cent was in severe-extreme
drought (up from 20 percent in
May). Additionally, from January
through June, warm, dry condi-
tions spawned more than 50,000
wildfires, burning more than
3,000,000 acres in the contiguous


U.S. and Alaska, according to the
National Interagency Fire Center.
Global Highlights
It was the second warmest June

SOUTH BAY Ilvestigators
now know the name of a per-
son found lifeless in a car at a
local park last week.
According to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office,
the man's name is James E.
Thornton, 61, of Delray Beach,
who may have died from
health complications.
Deputies with the sheriff's
office responded to the scene
last week.
Officials were called in to
investigate the incident on
June 11, at approximately
10:30 a.m. that day, finding the
man slumped over the front

AND MORE ;!h;.i!:l


passenger seat of his vehicle at
John Stretch Park. The park is
located just outside South Bay,
on U.S. 27.
Though investigators are
still piecing together the
details of the man's death, offi-
cials with the sheriff's office
said the man appeared to have
pulled over to the park after
experiencing health problems.
After searching the area for
clues, and finding that there
was no evidence to support
the presence of foul play in his
death, investigators said the
man seemed to have died
from a heart attack.
A medical examiner's
report should reveal the true
cause of the man's death.

surveys under way Chamber buzz


HENDRY COUNTY Hendry
County Economic Development
Council, Florida's Heartland
REDI, and Southwest Florida
Workforce Development board
are currently conducting busi-
ness Surveys for Hendry County.
The survey project started in
Clewiston on July 6, and will
continue throughout the county
until the middle of August. If you
haven't already been contacted
you can expect to be soon. The
surveys are "one on one" and
should take about 20 minutes to
complete.
The surveys are multi-func-
tional and were designed to
address some of the issues that
resulted from the countywide
visioning process that took place
earlier this year; to identify work-


force and skills needs for the
county employers; and will
include questions pertaining to
the employment needs of the
construction and trade business-
es aS requested by the High
Skills/High Wage committee dur-
ing a recent workforce develop-
ment retreat.
The information gathered
from the surveys will be used to
help determine what' skills are
needed for future employment,
help identify sources for funding
of new projects, and help pre-
pare emergency business plans.
The sponsoring organizations
ask for your cooperation when a
surveyor contacts you and
thanks you in advance for your
participation.

By Sean Moore

Greetings all!
A friend of mine was telling me
that they are getting ready to build
a home as part of Habitat for
Humanity. Shortly after that con-
versation I received an email from
the CREW group here in town that
is also getting ready to build a
home for a family.
I came away thinking, "I try to
help every chance I can, so I am
O.K." I do the Relay for Life each
year with American Cancer Soci-
ety, and food and toy drives each
year to help needy families. It's
easy to help. When kids are doing
car washes on the weekends, give
them money even if you do not


have them wash a car. (I can
remember those days trying to
raise money for basketball camp
at the University of Tampa!)
Help out as often as possible,
even if it is just the extra change in
the ashtray.
As I came in to the Chamber
office on Monday, I pulled out the
membership list of our non-profit
groups and charities. I have
already mentioned Relay for Life
with the American Cancer Society.
They are always looking for help
for events. American Lung Associ-
ation, the Leukemia and Lym-
phoma Society, and the Red Cross
will always be great places to look
to offer help.
If you are interested in donat-


ing time to a more local group,
there are plenty that can use your
help. The Lions Club accepts
donations. Their main focus is to
provide scholarships to vision
impaired children or providing eye
glasses to underprivileged kids.
The Rotary Club, Elks Club and
the Clewiston BPW are also local
community service groups.
If you want to help, stop in to
the Agape House Thrift Store
(located next to Royals Furniture).
It's a great store with all proceeds
from the store going to the Agape
Home for Abused Women.
Stop by the local VFW at the
corner of Francisco and Alverdez
Avenue. They are also another
community service group. Local


churches, schools and Humane
Societies are all non-profit groups
looking for help.
The word, "help" does not
always mean money. A lot of
places would love the help of two
hands instead of two bucks. These
are only a few groups in our area.
.The Clewiston Chamber of
Commerce has a complete list of
the great groups here. Please feel
free to stop by and ask about any
of the local community groups. If
you are a high school student and
would like to volunteer time
before school goes back in ses-
sion, stop by and find out how you
can help! Have a great weekend
and we'll see you back here next
week!

Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranches not "boot camps"


The Sheriff's Association has
received a number of inquiries
asking if the Youth Ranches are
in any way connected with the
'Boot Camps.' The Boot Camps
and the Florida Sheriff's Youth
Ranches are very different organ-
izations. The Boot Camps are
government run correctional
facilities that handle juvenile
delinquents, and the Florida
Sheriff's Youth Ranches (FSYR)
are a statewide charity that pre-


vents delinquency by providing a
home and family for abused,
neglected and troubled children.
For nearly 50 years, the FSYR
have been caring for children in
need and will continue to do so.
FSYR WAS Founded in 1957
by the Florida Sheriff's Associa-
tion and is a 501 (c)3 corpora-
tion. Its residential child care and
family service organization
dependent on the gifts and sup-
port of our ddnor family. It is a


nationally recognized, accredited
agency with sites throughout the
state of Florida. Our staff includes
social workers, counselors, ther-
apists and cottage parents who
serve over thousands of youth
and their families each year.
Programs include residential
group child care, family services,
and camping services aimed at
meeting the diverse needs of
Florida's youth and families.
If assistance is needed per-


training to any of the programs
and services, please contact the
appropriate family social worker
for the correct county of resi-
dence. Florida residency is
required for services.

Please be assured
As always, the public is wel-
come to visit any of the Youth
Ranches at any time and meet
the children in the care of ranch
staff members.

By Chuck Woods
LAKE ALFRED At a time
when Florida's citrus industry is
threatened by two devastating
diseases, canker and greening,
University of Florida (UF) exten-
sion agents are getting the word
out to citrus growers, nursery-
men, landscapers, home own-
ers and others about controlling
the spread of the bacterial dis-
eases before they do irreparable
harm to the $9.3 billion industry.
"Eradicating canker may no
longer be possible so we are
focusing on post-eradication
management strategies," said
Holly Chamberlain, coordinator
of the citrus canker education
program at UF's Citrus Research
and Education Center in Lake
Alfred. "At the same time, we are
also educating these groups
about citrus greening, which
was detected in Aug. 2005 and
can kill citrus trees."
She said Florida sacrificed
more than 11 million citrus trees
over the last 10 years in a strug-
gle to keep citrus canker from
spreading, but all of that effort
was wiped out in just a few
short hours in Oct. 2005 when
Hurricane Wilma rampaged
through the heart of the state's
groves, spreading the bacterium
far and wide.
To make matters even worse,
we're now faced with citrus
greening, a disease that is-poten-
tially even more destructive than
canker," Chamberlain said.
"Infected trees need to be
removed to slow the spread of
greening, which is spread by the
Asian citrus psyllid."
Chamberlain said the exten-
sion education effort has been
effective in reducing the negli-
gent spread of citrus canker by
educating citrus industry
employees about decontamina-
tion practices and avoiding the
movement of infected plant
material, especially during rainy
or wet conditions.

Canker education
program
"Since its inception, the
canker education program has
kept pace with the changes and
impacts on the industry, includ-
ing hurricanes and adjustments
in prices and acreage, all of
which are related," Chamber-


lain said. "We cover all aspects
of the disease, including citrus
canker biology, epidemiology,
history and regulations.
"However, in the industry's
current battle against canker
post-eradication, we are
focused on helping growers find
solutions," she said. "This
entails establishing an integrat-
ed grove management plan,
including early detection
through regular inspection cou-
pled with use of windbreaks,
copper sprays, decontamination
and other exclusion or suppres-
sion strategies."
She said the goal is to edu-
cate all client groups to adopt
the same programs that will
help make citrus canker a man-
ageable disease. Education
efforts have focused on the resi-
dential citrus plantings which
can spread infection. The other
significant part of the program is
geared toward the commercial
citrus industry, which is highly
aware of the risks and impact of
canker spreading to new areas.
"We provide training to both
groups on how to prevent or
slow that potential spread," she
said. "Statewide citrus canker
education activities have also
focused on the national and
international aspects of the dis-
ease. We are sharing our experi-
ences here in Florida to other
citrus producing states as well
as learning from countries that
have endemic 'canker and how
they.struggle to manage the dis-
ease."
Chamberlain said education-
al materials ranging from fact
sheets and PowerPoint presen-.
tations to videos and training
modules for extension Master
Gardeners have been pro-
duced and presented to these
and other groups. Most recently,
DVDs have been distributed
statewide to the citrus industry
on grove inspection, decontami-
nation, and management. A cit-
rus canker education display is
being used at county fairs, meet-
ings, seminars, workshops and
other events. All of the informa-
tion is available on extension's
citrus canker Web site:
http://canker.ifas.ufl.edu.
When the canker education
program started, extension's
Master Gardener groups
became a key part of the effort.
"Master Gardeners are active .


in county extension offices and
plant disease diagnostic clinics,
and they handle phone calls
regarding pest and disease man-
agement. For these reasons, the
program is an essential part of
our canker education program,"
he said.
Twenty counties have been


impacted by citrus canker dur-
ing the past 10 years: Brevard,
Broward, Charlotte, Collier, DeS-
oto, Hendry, Highlands, Hills-
borough, Indian River, Lee,
Manatee, Martin, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, Okeechobee, Orange,
Osceola, Palm Beach, Sarasota
and St. Lucie counties.

Florida Ag in the classroom celebrates 20 years


GAINESVILLE Florida agricul-
ture industry leaders made educat-
ing non-agriculture teachers and
students about the importance of
Florida agriculture their mission in
the 1980s when talk of starting
Florida Agriculture in the Class-
room, Inc. began.
"Florida Ag in the Classroom
has been around a long, long
time," said Polly Golden of the Flori-
da Beef Council and one of Florida
Ag in the Classroom's founding
board members whose signature
appears on the non-profit organiza-
tion's articles of incorporation in
August 1986.
In the nearly 10 years since the
creation of the agriculture specialty
license plate or the Ag Tag the
organization's sole source of fund-
ing Florida Ag in the Classroom
estimates it has reached more than
1 million students and more than
15,000 teachers.
Florida Ag in the Classroom has
grown into a multi-faceted, non-
profit educational program based
in Gainesville that offers teachers in
kindergarten through 12th grade
curricula, materials, workshops,
grant money and other programs
to help them incorporate agricul-
tural concepts in their language
arts, math, science and social stud-
ies lessons.
It is able to offer these items to
Florida teachers free of charge or
for a nominal fee because of the
funding it receives from sales of the
Ag Tag to industry supporters
around the state.


"Florida Ag in the Classroom
has become an educational pro-
gram valued by teachers because
most of its curricula and materials
are free, correlated to Sunshine
State standards and provide stu-
dents with real-life applications for
their classroom lessons," said
Heather Nedley, chairman of Flori-
da Ag in the Classroom and execu-
tive director of Polk County Farm
Bureau. Florida Ag in the Class-
room is governed by a Florida agri-
culture industry board of directors.
"As students use these applica-
tions, they're learning how impor-
tant the citrus, vegetable, horticul-
ture, beef, dairy and other
industries are to this state," Ms.
Nedley said.
But a lot of time and hard work
went into the creation of the organ-
ization and the Ag Tag, and repre-
sentatives from nearly every major
commodity, agriculture associa-
tion, company and governmental
entity in Florida pitched in to help.
"After a lot of thought, and col-
lecting ideas from other state Ag in
the Classrooms, we got started,"
Florida Beef Council's Ms. Golden
said, adding that they began in the
late 1980s by offering teachers
workshops and science-based cur-
riculum.
The Florida'Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
and then Commissioner Bob
Crawford and current Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson have sup-
ported the organization over the
years. Early on, the Department


provided office space to house it
and staff members to coordinate its
efforts in Jodi Chase, John
McNeely, Kelvin Robinson and
DotyWenzel.
The program's popularity grew
as it developed its own curriculum,
held teacher training workshops at
the local and state level, among
other activities. But membership
dues it received from industry
organizations and individuals
weren't enough to expand Florida
Ag in the Classroom's programs.
In the mid 1990s, industry repre-
sentatives began to think about
starting the Ag Tag.
"After the (legislative) session, a
group of us would meet to talk
about potential legislation for the
next year," said Butch Calhoun of
Florida Fruit and Vegetable Associa-
tion (FFVA). "Charlie Mathews (of
FFVA) asked, "Why don't you do
anAgTag?"
FDACS attorneys helped draft
language, and FDACS and FFVA
graphic artists helped develop a
design. "We developed the slogan
"Agriculture Keeps Florida Green"
with crops and money," Calhoun
recalled.
In the meantime, Mr. Calhoun
and Joan Kyle of Florida Fertilizer
and Agrichemical Association and
others solicited financial support
from the industry. In the end, con-
tributions from a cross section of
the industry and a loan from Flori-
da Farm Bureau helped make the
Ag Tag a reality.
"In support of our program, I


received donations from many
chemical companies and fertilizer
members in FFAA as well as indi-
vidual citrus growers to repay our
debt," Ms. Kyle said. "It would have
been inappropriate to use Ag Tag
money to reimburse Farm
Bureau."
Other agriculture industry asso-
ciations that helped out by provid-
ing financial contributions or solic-
iting signatures included: Dairy
Farmers, Inc., Florida Fruit and Veg-
etable Association, Florida Beef
Council, Florida Citrus Mutual,
Florida Phosphate Council, then
Florida Nurserymen and Growers
Association, Florida Strawberry
Growers Association, University of
Florida/IFAS, several farming oper-
ations and agrichemical compa-
nies and Florida FFA Association,
among others.
In the end, the industry pulled
together and created the Ag Tag,
solidifying Florida Ag in the Class-
room's source of funding.
After that, then Florida Ag in the
Classroom Chairman Scott Christ-
mas and board members hired the
organization's first full-time execu-
tive director, Deena Stokes, who
helped improve and add to Florida
Ag in the Classroom curricula and
materials and other programs.
"I look at where we are today,
and I'm so proud," said Florida
Farm Bureau's Kevin Morgan, who
served as chairman and director in
the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Other past chairmen and chair-
women included: Elin Oak of Flori-


Commissioner Winn announces new grants


TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner John L. Winn
announced that Florida students
who qualify for Pell Grants may
be able to take advantage of a
new grant program to help make
college more affordable..During
the 2006-07 school year, the state
aims to award more than 30,000
full-time eligible students approxi-
mately $47 million in new Acade-
mic Competitiveness (AC) and
National Science and Mathemat-
ics Access to Retain Talent
(SMART) grants worth between
$750 and $4,000 per student.
"Florida will now be able to
provide even more opportunity
for students to achieve their goals
of attending and completing col-
lege," said Gov. Jeb Bush. "These.
grants comrpilemeni the A++
Plan for Education which is com-
mitted to increasing the rigor of


high school for students and
ensuring they are ready for the
challenges of the real world."
The Higher Education Recon-
ciliation Act (HERA) of 2005 creat-
ed the two new federally funded
financial aid campus-based pro-.
grams. States were asked by the
U.S. Department of Education to
submit proposals identifying
alternative rigorous high school
programs. Thirty-six states' pro-
posals were approved including
Florida. Bright Futures course-
work, courses similar to the State
Scholars Initiative, and Advanced
Placement (AP) or International
Baccalaureate (IB) courses
(including passing the exam for
these classes) all met the AC grant
program requirements for rigor-
ous high school curriculum.
"These grants create an
incentive for students to take


more challenging courses during
high school which will better
prepare them for success in col-
lege," said Commissioner Winn.
"Now these hard-working stu-
dents will have more resources
to attend college."
The AC grants provide college
students who completed a rigor-
ous course of study in high school
with additional funds of up to
$750 during, their freshman year
and up to $1,300 during their
sophomore year. This is in addi-
tion to Pell Grant funds students
already are receiving. College jun-
iors and seniors who are eligible
for SMART grants automatically
will receive up to $4,000 in addi-
tional aid next year.

tion about available financial aid,

Florida Ag in the Classroom
continues to strive to make its pro-
grams relevant and interesting to
educators and industry volunteers.
It has developed pre- and post-
tests that are tailored to the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
so teachers can help their students
practice for the FCAT. In addition, it
hopes to add online teacher work-
shops to its web site in the next two
years to capture younger teachers


who utilize distance education.
It has developed fun programs
to involve the Florida agriculture
industry more in its efforts. For
example, it launched Florida Agri-
culture Literacy Day three years
ago, and has more than doubled
the number of industry volunteers
who go into elementary school
classrooms around the state to
read a designated children's book
about agriculture as part of the
event.
"Florida Ag in the Classroom
directors and staff always want to
make sure its programs help edu-
cators teach students about the
importance of Florida agriculture
so Ag Tag buyers feel their money is
being spent wisely and well,"
Chairwoman Nedley said.

New rules to reduce power plant emissions Project


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) received approval
from the Environmental Regula-
tion Commission to implement
more stringent air emission stan-
dards that will improve Florida's
air quality. The new standards will
help the state meet the require-
ments of the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean
Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and
Clean Air Mercury Rule (CAMR).
"These regulations will ensure
that Florida continues to meet all
national air quality standards by
reducing harmful emissions," said
DEP Deputy Secretary for Regula-
tory Programs and Energy Mike
Sole. "By continuing to update
technology at power plants and
investing in alternative energy, we
can ensure that future generations


of Floridians enjoy cleaner air and
an improved quality of life."
CAIR addresses pollution that
crosses state lines and according
to the EPA will achieve the largest
reduction in air pollution in more
than a decade.
Florida is one of 28 states intro-
ducing the new federal emission
standard, which must be submit-
ted to the EPA this fall. CAMR is the
first-ever federal rule to perma-
nently reduce mercury emissions
from coal-fired power plants
nationwide.
As part of CAIR, Florida's
power plants will be required to
reduce emissions of nitrogen
oxides and sulfur dioxide, which
contribute to the formation of fine.
particles and ground-level ozone.
CAMR will build on CAIR regula-
tions to significantly reduce mer-


cury emissions from coal-fired
power plants.
Going beyond federal require-
ments, Florida's plan for imple-
menting CAMR will result in
greater mercury reductions than
those required by the EPA.
In the initial phase of the CAIR
program, sulfur dioxide emissions
will be reduced by approximately
55 percent, an estimated 218,000
tons per year, and nitrogen oxides
emissions will be reduced by
approximately 75 percent, an esti-
mated 69,000 tons per year. Mer-
cury emissions from coal-fired
power plants will be reduced by
approximately 45 percent, an esti-
mated 1,030 pounds per year.
If approved by EPA, the new
regulations will go into effect by
2010.
Florida was one of the first


states to achieve major emission
reductions from power plants
through the federal Clean Air Act.
More than 20,000 megawatts of
clean electrical power generating
capacity has been added or
approved since 1998.
Enough to continually power
more than four million homes.
Under the leadership of Governor
Jeb Bush, the State has worked
with utilities to reduce emissions
from all Florida power plants,
including those that burn coal.
From 1999 through 2004, sulfur
dioxide emissions were reduced
by approximately 350,000 tons
and nitrogen oxides emissions
were reduced by 40,000 tons.

da's CAIR and CAMR rules, visit

Multi-million dollar price fixing case goes to court


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist announced that
he will sue seven foreign and
domestic firms that manufacture
computer memory chips and their
U.S. subsidiaries, alleging the firms
conspired to fix the prices of
dynamic random access memory
(DRAM) chips. Mr. Crist and 33
other state attorneys general will
file the case, claiming multi-million
dollar damages to private citizens
and governmental agencies that
purchased DRAM chips and equip-
ment that contained the chips over
a four-year period.
Companies named as defen-
dants include Micron Technology,'
Inc.; Infineon Technologies AG;
Hynix Semiconductor, Inc.; Elpida
Memory, Inc.; Mosel Vitelic Corp.;

chobee, water supply, naviga-
tion, and the Greater Everglades.
All of these things make up the
body.
Of course, this plan was not
the best solution for each
aspect, but it was the best over-
all. The plan was created to keep
the whole body healthy. It also
provides an environmental bal-
ance that's meets the LORSS
objectives for lower lake man-
agement.
So what does all this mean?
A portion of the plan calls for
the corps to pay attention when
the lake reaches a certain level,


Nanya Technology Corp. and NEC
Electronics America, Inc. The
largest four of the DRAM manufac-
turers and their U.S. subsidiaries
control roughly 70 percent of the
U.S. market, which in 2003 was
approximately $5 billion of the $17
billion in worldwide sales.
The main allegations in the
complaint focus on the defendants'
conspiracy to fix DRAM chip prices
from 1998 through 2002. The price
fixing allowed them to artificially
restrain supply, allocate the produc-
tion and markets for DRAM chips
among themselves and rig bids for
DRAM chip contracts. DRAM chips
are semiconductors that hold tem-
porary instructions and data, mak-
ing the data available for quick
access when computers and other
electronic devices are in use.


in this case 12.75 feet. The corps
will release small amounts of
water into the estuaries to keep
the lake from building too high.
The estuaries would not be
hammered by water from the
lake, and the lake could main-
tain a safe water level.
After the presentation, those
in attendance were asked to give
comments about the tentatively
selected plan. Most were in
agreement with Colonel Carpen-
ter and thought the plan would
work.
As one gentlemen said, "This
is the best plan that has been
thought of since 1960."
Many thanks were given to
Colonel Carpenter and his team
for their hard work and dedica-
tion to Southwest Florida.

"These companies conspired to
rig the market, working together to
keep prices artificially high," said
Mr. Crist. "In the process, they hurt
individual consumers, government
agencies and taxpayers."
According to the states' com-
plaint, the firms began to coordi-
nate prices as early as 1998, when
there was an excess of DRAM chips
in the market. As a result, computer
manufacturers paid more for
DRAM than they would have paid
"in a free and competitive market."
The affected computer manufac-
turers included Apple Computer,
Inc., Compaq Computer Corp.,
Dell, Inc., Gateway, Inc., Hewlett-
Packard Co., and IBM. The com-
puter manufacturers passed along
these overcharges to Florida con-
sumers and Florida public entity


Others, on the other hand,
were not as impressed by the
new plan.
Questions were raised about
water supply and whether com-
munities would have enough
water after all the water releases
from Lake Okeechobee. Others
brought to Colonel Carpenter's
attention the vegetation in the
lake. They questioned why the
lake's vegetation was being
killed by pesticides being
sprayed.
Colonel Carpenter had no
response for this.
"You have to trust that the
corps is going to do everything
possible to keep citizens from
evacuating if another storm
comes through and pounds us
with water," Colonel Carpenter


computer purchasers.
The case follows a federal
antitrust investigation by the US
Department of Justice (DOJ). After
the DOJ launched its investigation
in June 2002, Micron agreed to
cooperate with investigators in
exchange for amnesty from federal
criminal charges. Four firms, as
well as 12 corporate individuals,
pled guilty to criminal price-fixing
and paid more than $730 million in
fines.
The complaint, to be filed in
U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of California, asks the court
to order the defendants to pay three
times the amount of damages for
which the court finds them liable.
Florida is one of the lead states in
the case.


said.
If another hurricane like
Wilma comes through Clewis-
ton, the lake will rise even more,
and the chances of a flood are
extreme. With these small
releases of water, the corps will
keep the lake at a.safe level so
that when another storm does
pound us with water, the water
level will still be low enough that
we will not have to evacuate
because of flood.
The point that the U.S. Corps
of Engineers wanted to make in
the meeting is that they are
doing their best to provide the
surrounding communities with
a safe lake.
This will not happen
overnight, they said, but they are
making it work.

Laws change regarding landscape pesticide applications


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
They said it couldn't be done,
but it's actually happened. It is now
actually easier for landscape main-
tenance professionals to be a
bona-fide, legal applicator of pesti-
cides. And for the consumer, some
changes in Florida Statues improve
your protection from shady termite
pest control companies.
Today's column will update an
article on this subject that was
printed this past spring. It will give
homeowners some ideas on
what's new in Florida termite con-
tract terminology. And with easier
requirements for certification, it's
now a bit easier for the "mow,
blow, and go" folks to get legal.
Three laws
Florida has a confusing system
of making sure consumers and the
environment, are protected from
the misuse of pesticides. The first
state pesticide law concerns itself
with the use of pesticides in agricul-
tural settings, but it covers a lot
more than farming.
The obvious use of pesticides in
citrus groves, vegetable fields, and
nurseries is covered by the Agricul-
tural Pest Control Law [F.S. 487].
But beyond producers, this law
also insures that persons using
these toxic products in natural
areas, roadsides, or aquatic sites
are properly trained and super-
vised. It applies Federal guidelines
under Florida conditions when
using restricted use herbicides,
insecticides, or fungicides. It even


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
nominations are being accepted
for the 2006 "Woman of the Year in
Agriculture" award. The award,
now in its 22nd year, recognizes
women who have made outstand-
ing contributions to Florida agricul-
ture.
"This award spotlights the vital
role of women in Florida agricul-
ture and serves to encourage other
women to get involved in the busi-
ness," Bronson said. "Many
women have made significant con-
tributions over the years in develop-
ing and sustaining this important
industry, which has an overall eco-
nomic impact estimated at more
than $87 billion annually."
Those nominated for the award


Termite Contracts Relaxed


includes a few unusual situations
like the use of these pesticides on
golf courses and parks or for spe-
cialized uses such as aerial applica-
tions or protective boat paints.
A second pesticide law in Flori-
da is concerned with the use of
these products for the control of
pests as mosquitoes or other pub-
lic pests. There are a few locals that
hold Public Pest Control Licenses
in our area, but since we don't
have any organized Mosquito con-
trol here, there is not too much
activitywith this law [ES. 388].
Notice we have not talked
about termites or landscape pesti-
cides use. The way it was
explained to me was that the use
of pesticides "inside, outside,
under, or through" buildings is
governed by the Structural Pest
Control Act [a.k.a. F.S. 482]. This
law is the one that the Florida Leg-
islature recently changed, and the
focus of this article.
While homeowners can use
"off the shelf" products to do-it-
themselves, there are some situa-
tions where professional help is
needed. Many well-known pest
control companies often apply
pesticides to keep buildings safe
and landscapes in top-notch
shape. Some of these "Pest Control
Operators" are locally-based busi-
ness owners that can spray your
lawn for insects or diseases, pro-
vide indoor protection from roach-
es, fleas and rodents, can eliminate
or protect buildings from termites,
and if necessary fumigate these
structures to kill every other kind of
pest found inside a structure.


Requirements for
Landscapers
The Structural Pest Control
Law also permits the LIMITED
use of pesticides near structures
by persons that work for the gov-
ernment, or who are treating pri-
vately owned buildings. Those
businesses that take care of pri-
vate RESIDENTAL landscapes can
also obtain a "Limited Certificate
- Commercial Landscape Mainte-
nance" that makes it legal for
them to apply certain kinds pesti-
cides when taking care of our
Florida Yards.
Many landscapers ask about the
Landscape Maintenance certificate,
but back away when they find out
some of the requirements. Here's


"This award spotlights the vital role of women in
Florida agriculture and serves to encourage
other women to get involved in the business."
Charles H. Bronson,
Florida Agriculture Commissioner


will be judged by a panel familiar
with Florida agriculture. The award
will be presented in February at the
opening-day luncheon of the 2007
Florida State Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer eServices,
which sponsors the event has sent
nomination forms to agricultural
organizations around the state. The
deadline for submitting nomina-
tions to the Department is Nov. 1,
2006. Nominations remain active


for two years; after that time they
must be resubmitted in order to be
considered.

the "Woman of the Year in Agri-
culture" award, including screen-,
ing criteria and biographies of
previous winners, or to obtain
nomination forms, call Richard
Gunnels at (850) 488-3022 or visit

agwoman/index.htm.


what will make it easier for persons
to get this certification:
When a person wanted to get
this Landscape Maintenance certifi-
cate, before they even could take
the test, they had to attend an eight-
hour long training class. The
revised law reduces this training
class to a six-hour class.
Another stumbling block was
that applicants had to prove they
had been in the business for three
years before applying to take the
test. This experience requirement
has been removed.
Again before the test, the
applicant had to prove they had lia-
bility insurance before taking the
test. Now they can pass the test
first, and then demonstrate insur-
ance coverage so buying insur-
ance can happen after they know
they have passed.


Clarified
No one likes to even think about
termites getting into their build-
ings, but when they do, a profes-
sional Pest Control Operator ought
to be consulted. Unfortunately
there have been a few "bugs" in
the law that regulates these busi-
nesses. A few changes that help
protect consumers have been
made in FS. 482 and they became
effective July first:
Termite control contracts
must clearly state if the work is for
drywood or subterranean termites.
(This is important because the
methods used to treat these critters
are very different.)
If a "spot-treatment" is used,
companies must post a notice
that this was the case. (A treat-
ment sticker could give the false
impression that a complete treat-
ment was done.)
Re-treatments must be done
in 90 days (180 days for multi-unit
structures).
Companies can't refuse to
re-treat because they knew about
a construction defect or other
condition that would contribute
to termites.
Consumers can get more infor-
mation on termite protection, the
difference between subterranean
or drywood termites or file a com-
plaint against a pest control com-
pany by calling 1-800-HELP-FLA or

HENDRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Announces its policy for Free and Reduced Price Meals for students under the
NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH AND BREAKFAST PROGRAMS.
Any interested person may review a copy of the policy by contacting
CHARLES D. DAVIS Post Office Box 1980 LaBelle, Florida 33975
Household size and income criteria will be used to determine eligibility. These criteria can be found listed below. Children from families whose income is at or below
the levels shown may be eligible for Free or Reduced Price Meals. An application can not be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once
approved, meal benefits are good for an entire year. You need not notify the organization of changes in income and household size.
Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for Free or Reduced Price Meals, households must complete the applica-
tion and return it to school. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application will be used for the
purpose of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.
Households that receive Food Stamps or TANF (Temporary Assistance to Needy Families) are required to list on the application only the child's name, Food
Stamp/rANF case number, and signature of adult household member.
Foster children may receive benefits based on the child's personal income regardless of the income of the household.
Household with children who are considered migrants, homeless or runaway should contact the district liaison, Jodi Bell at 863-674-4108.
For the purpose of determining household size, deployed service members are considered a part of the household. Families should include the names of the deployed
service members on their application. Report only the portion of the deployed service member's income made available to them or on their behalf to the family.
Additionally, a housing allowance that is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative is not to be included as income.
All other households must provide the following information listed on the application:
Total household income listed by amount received and type of income and how often the income is received (wages, child support, etc.) received by each house-
hold member;
Names of all household members;
Signature of an adult household member certifying the information provided is correct; and
Social security number of the adult signing the application or the word "NONE" for this household member if he or she does not have a social security number.
If a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes, the school should be contacted. Children of parents or guardians who become unem-
ployed should also contact the school.
Such changes may make the student eligible for reduced price or free meals if the household income falls at or below the levels show below.
Under the provisions of the Free and Reduced Price meal policy, Charles D. Davis, will review applications and determine eligibility If a parent or guardian is dis-
satisfied with the ruling of the official, he or she may wish to discuss the decision with the determining official on an informal basis. If the parent wishes to make a for-
mal appeal, he or she may make a request either orally or in writing to:
SCOTT COOPER
Post Office Box 1980 LaBelle, Florida 33975 863-674-4113
Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the Free and Reduced Price Meal application may be used by the school system in determining eli-
gibility for other educational programs.

Yogurt is ancient way to promote good digestion


Everything old is new again.
Health-conscious Americans
are rediscovering an ancient
food yogurt. Yogurt is a natural
food that helps promote good
digestion.
Years of eating wrong has left
digestive systems so out of
whack they have trouble proper-
ly processing any food. The
health food solution is yogurt
with active culture.
A trip to the grocery store
reveals many choices of yogurts.
'You can have yogurt whipped or
Scream, with fruit mixed in or on
Sthe bottom. You can find exotic
flavors like. chocolate covered
cherry and Key Lime. You can
even find yogurt that is liquid
enough to drink (for those too
busy to use a spoon).
Here's a hint: Read the labels.


A
Healthier
Life e J

with Katrina Elsken
Many of these "yogurt" products
are full of sugar and high in fat,
and also contain artificial flavor-
ings and colorings. And most of
them don't even contain active
culture.
Active culture is the bacteria
added during yogurt production,
Lactobacillus bulgaricus and
Streptococcus thermophilus.
According to a 1992 article pub-


lished by the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), this same
fermenting process has been
used since 2,000 B.C.
Researchers believe Middle
Eastern civilizations used this
process to preserve milk, and
since then yogurt has been a sta-
ple in European and Mediter-
ranean diets.
Yogurt, a dairy product, is nat-
urally a good source of calcium.
If you have trouble digesting
other dairy products, you might
have better luck with yogurt.
Those who are "lactose intoler-
ant" have trouble digesting lac-
tose (milk sugar). Symptoms of
lactose intolerance include diar-
rhea, abdominal cramps and
nausea. Yogurt is easier to digest
because the enzymes in the
active culture help break down


the lactose before you eat it.
Yogurt is also commonly used
*as a home remedy for a variety of
ailments. Some people say if you
should eat yogurt after taking
antibiotics, since the antibiotics
might disrupt your digestion by
killing off some of the "good"
bacteria in your digestive sys-
tem.
Some people believe that eat-
ing yogurt can help ward off
yeast infections by helping the
body fight harmful bacteria.
Yogurt is made following a
very old recipe. Milk is pasteur-
ized to kill harmful bacteria, then
cooled to about 113 degrees
Fahrenheit, and the yogurt bacte-
ria added. The milk and bacteria
mixture is allowed to ferment
and then chilled.
In the United States, yogurt is


commonly made with cow's
milk. But in other parts of the
world, it is common to make
yogurt with goat's milk.
Not all yogurt contains live
culture. Some yogurt manufac-
turers heat the yogurt after fer-
mentation. This does not affect
the nutritional content of the
yogurt, but it does kill the live
culture. If you're eating yogurt
because it's high in calcium, you
might not care whether or not it
has live culture. But if you're eat-
ing yogurt in an effort to improve
your digestion, the live culture is
the key ingredient.
Read the label. According to
the FDA, if the e manufacturer
heat-treats the yogurt after fer-
mentation, the label must say
"heat-treated after culturing."
The FDA also warns con-


sumers not to be confused by a
label that says "made with active
cultures." All yogurt is made
with active cultures. Brands that
are heat treated after fermenta-
tion no longer contain the active
culture.
The longer yogurt sits in the
refrigerator, the fewer active cul-
ture bacteria the yogurt contains.
So check the date label for the
freshest yogurt you can find, and
don't buy more than you will
consume in one week.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is especial-
ly important if you are on any
prescription drugs. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."


Pet Talk


Pet owners urged to
prepare for disasters
The old saying goes some-
thing like this: An ounce of pre-
vention is worth a pound of cure.
It couldn't be more true when it
comes to preparing for a disaster,
and for pet owners, this includes
Fido and Fluffy.
"Because of the sad animal
episodes related to hurricane
Katrina, it is important that
responsible animal owners
develop an emergency plan for
their pets," says Dr. Murl Bailey, a
veterinarian at the College of Vet-
erinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences at Texas A&M University
and a member of the Texas State
Animal Response Team.
"Countless times people have
been told to leave their homes for
a short time, only to find that they
cannot return for days or weeks.


Even disasters like gas leaks and
minor flooding can keep you
from tending to your.animals for
extended periods of time."
Bailey recommends the Amer-
ican Veterinary Medical Associa-
tion's brochure on disaster pre-
paredness. The free brochure,
which can be accessed through
the AVMA's Web site, lists several
steps in developing a disaster
plan for pets:
Develop an evacuation plan
and practice it.
If you live in an apartment,
make sure your animals are on
record with management. Dogs
should be taught to use the stairs
to better assist rescue personnel.
Keep written directions to
your home near your telephone.
This will help you and others
explain to emergency responders
exactly how to get to your home.
Identify alternate sources of


food and water. Some local food
and water sources may be dis-
rupted or contaminated for
extended periods of time.
Keep all vehicles well main-
tained and full of gas.
Keep emergency cash on
hand.
These steps also include
assembling both an animal evac-
uation and first aid kit.
"The contents of the first aid
and evacuation kits will vary
according to the species of ani-
mal owned," Bailey says.
Besides the items that would
normally appear in a human
emergency preparation kit, such
as flashlights and batteries, sever-
al things should be included in
an evacuation kit for small ani-
mals:
A two-week supply of food
and water with non-spill bowls.
A carrier for each animal


labeled with contact information
A leash, collar, harness and
muzzle for each animal
Important paperwork (an
emergency contact list, copies of
veterinary records, proof of own-
ership and instructions on the
animal's diet and medication).
Toys, treats and other famil-
iar items to make pets feel com-
fortable.
The first aid kit,also contains
several items that are typical for
humans, but in addition, the kit
should include:
Antidiarrheal liquid or
tablets
Flea, tick and heartworm
prevention and treatment
Ice cream sticks (which
may be used as splints)
Liquid dish detergent (mild
wound and body cleanser)
Non-adherent bandage

The 1926 hurricane hit Moore Haven


By Twila Valentine
Edited by Maryann Morris
From 1977 uhtil her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and histo-
rian, Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valen-
tine wrote much about the history
of the people and places around
Lake Okeechobee and about the
lake itself. Together with Okee-
chobee's Betty Williamson, Presi-
dent of the Okeechobee Histori-
cal Society, she co-authored a
book, now in its second printing,
"Strolling down Country Roads in
Okeechobee."
The following article is based
on her research of the 1926 hurri-
cane: the first of two catastrophic
events that led to the building of
the dike around Lake Okee-
chobee. This account was written
Sept. 18,1988.
The month of September has
traditionally been one of the most
active months for hurricanes to
slam into Florida. Sept. 18 marks
the anniversary (this year will be
the 78th) of the then Big Lake's
first and largest town, Moore
Haven faced destruction.
This was the same storm on
the same day which literally lev-
eled the booming town of Miami
and its suburb, Coral Gables.
Moore Haven, founded in
1915, had been the victim of
flooding in 1922, 1923, and 1924.
(If you go there, you can tell
which the really old houses are -
they are built several feet off the
ground!) To protect the farms, an
earthen dike had been construct-
ed along the south shore of Lake
Okeechobee.
Roaring in from the Caribbean,
the storm struck before daylight
on the eighteenth in Miami and
surrounding areas, claiming over
200 lives and injuring about 6.000
along the Gold Coast. Damage in
Miami alone was estimated to be
$27 million in 1926 dollars.
Some 130 miles to the north-


I.- o w~c


Special to INI/Florida Archives
Joe's Fish Camp was owned and operated by the van de Veldes after the 1926 hurricane. The
car seen on the left side of the photo would place the photo sometime in the 1950s. If anyone
has any more information about Joe and Mertie van de Velde or the fish camp, let us know.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


^n i

west, the town of Moore Haven
had received above normal rain-
fall for the year and the seven-
teenth was dark and blustery. The
lake was full and the earthen dike
was being tested to its limits.
There were some weak spots
between Liberty Point and Clewis-
ton and also at the pumping sta-
tions. The Caloosahatchee River
was straining at its banks with the
heavy discharge from ditches and
sloughs.
On Friday, the seventeenth a
telegram was received in Moore
Haven stating that a hurricane
was expected to hit the east coast
in the vicinity of Miami. That was
the total warning that Moore
Haven received about the storm.
From midnight on, every able-
bodied man in the Moore Haven
area worked filling several thou-


sand sand bags to reinforce the
weakening dike. By daybreak, it
became obvious their efforts
were in vain and the citizens of
Moore Haven resigned them-
selves to yet another flood.
Hurricane winds then hit in full
force and the first break in the
dike occurred about a mile east of
town. It was soon-followed by
other breaks. Water began to flow
through the main streets of the
town in huge waves, rising above
the streets to inundate homes
which had not been built to with-
stand the combined onslaught of
winds and tidal waves. Soon,
many of these houses were
washed from their foundations
and began to float, breaking up as
they drifted.
Fred Flanders, an engineer
who lived on a canal bank near
the locks, made his way to his
home when the waters began to
rise. Jim Lee, a state employee,
Newman Etherton and Flanders
caught a boat drifting in the canal.
The trio made it to Flander's
home and rescued Mrs. Flanders,
the two children and the family
dog sought shelter and safety.
They remained on the tug until
the water receded and a rescue
party reached them.
Joe van de Veldt, who worked


at the pumping station at that
time, arrived home in time to let
the water flood into his newly-
built home when he opened the
door. He took his family to the
Mayflower Hotel which he con-
sidered to be safer for his family.
About 8:30 a.m. the hotel began
to float, then turned and settled,
blocking the street.
They remained in the hotel
until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday when
they were taken by boat to
Newhall, an abandoned settle-
ment two and a half miles west of
Moore Haven.
The home that Hoe van de
Velde built in Moore Haven sur-
vived the storm and several years
ago, it was moved to Lakeport
where it still stands and was the
home for Joe's widow, Mertie and
his daughter Margaret.
The final death toll was about
150, most of them in or near
Moore Haven. There were about
50 people injured and an untold
number of homes damaged or
destroyed."The wind velocity was
not measured during this storm,
but the winds are estimated to
have been in excess of 100 miles
per hour."

Agencies work for the South Florida way of life


By MaryAnn Morris

Perhaps the single most
important thing in the Kissim-
mee/Lake Okeechobee/Ever-
glades watershed now is the
ongoing work in the Compre-
hensive Everglades Restoration
Plan (CERP).. CERP and the eight
CERP projects being fast-tracked
(Acceler8) by the State of Florida
to help the critical water-related
issues we are facing are
designed by, constructed by, and
managed by many, many agen-
cies; state, federal and private
interests all have a stake in the
good of this unique area.
South Florida has the second
largest lake in the United States,
the Everglades, an ecosystem of
global interest, incredibly rich
year-around farming, and a
booming tourist industry, not to
mention, (apart from hurri-
canes) a pretty nice lifestyle.

The problem
Drainage and development
of south Florida has had major
environmental consequences in
the Everglades. Saltwater intru-
sion into freshwater aquifers has
extended as far as 6 miles inland
from the coast in some areas.
The land surface has sub-
sided as much as 6 feet in some
agricultural areas because of
lowered water tables, oxidation
of drained peat, and subsequent
peat fires.
Mercury contamination of
fish has resulted in a ban on the
consumption of fish from the
central part of the Everglades


A




National Park and is implicated
in the deaths of endangered
Florida panthers.
Populations of wading
birds have decreased by almost
95 percent from 1870 to 1973. In
high-nutrient areas, cattails are
replacing native sawgrass. Plant
and animal communities in the
Everglades have been altered by
changes in timing and duration
of inundation; invasion of exotic
plants as a result of drainage and
land clearing, nutrient, and (or)
contaminant-enrichment of
water that flows into Everglades
from agricultural and urban
areas; and loss of habitat.

The CERP solution
The goal of Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP) is to capture fresh water
that now flows unused to the
ocean and the gulf and redirect it
to areas that need it most. The
majority of the water will be
devoted to environmental
restoration, reviving a dying
ecosystem. The remaining water
will benefit cities and farmers by
enhancing water supplies for the
south Florida economy. CERP
covers 16 counties over an
18,000-square-mile area and
centers on an update of the Cen-


Location
of Study
Area

Special to INI/United States Geological Survey
If this graphic looks familiar, it should. It is the same basic
diagram used by all CERP partners. This one is from USGS.


tral & Southern Florida (C&SF)
Project which dates back to the
1940s.
CERP was approved in the
Water Resources Development
Act (WRDA) of 2000. It includes
more than 60 elements, will take
more than 30 years to construct
and will cost an estimated $7.8
billion. It was the WRDA that
gave the COE authority to re-
evaluate the C&SF Project (Cen-
tral and South Florida Flood
Control) and recommend
improvements and changes in
order to restore the ecosystem.


The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE) is the lead agency.
Without their expertise in con-
struction methods and program
management, coordination of
the many agencies and many
ongoing projects in CERP would
be very difficult indeed. The COE
alone has over 100 years experi-
ence with. mammoth construc-
tion projects and receives con-
gressional approval to build
them.
Many other agencies work
with the COE. The most involved
.are South Florida Water Manage-


ment District (SFWMD) and the
United States Geological Survey
(USGS).
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD)
"manages" the water in the
watershed and issues permits
for water use for utility compa-
nies and farms. By coordinating
the total amount of water that
can be pulled from lakes, canals
and underground water,
SFWMD protects the water sup-
ply. By allowing a measured
amount of water to flow into
and out of lakes, canals, etc.,
flood control is coordinated.
SFWMD manages canals and
water control structures and the
construction contracts that are
building the reservoirs, water
management areas, filling in
canals and the like that are locat-
ed on SFWMD property.
The United States Geological
Survey (USGS) is heavily
involved with CERP, SFWMD
and the COE. It is rather the
"glue" that keeps the very tech-
nical issues and makes sure the
other agencies have the benefit
of the best science the U.S. has
to offer. USGS brings such tech-
nological tools as geospatial
satellite imagery.
Not only does,USGS provide
the research, their scientists join
in the meetings with other CERP
partners to be certain the scien-
tific information is understood
by all and is part of the decision
making. USGS, SFWMD and
COE are truly partners in the
restoration of a healthy South
Florida ecosystem.

How CERP
will work
By storing water someplace
except in Lake Okeechobee, the
water level in the lake will be low-
ered. An independent panel of sci-
entists found the Herbert Hoover
Dike is threatened by high lake lev-
els. In case there is any confusion,
an "independent" report is just that.
If a study is commissioned to be
independent, that is what the scien-
tists are paid for; their best profes-
sional judgment.
With a lower water level, light
will reach the bottom of the lake
and the vegetation will re-grow, fish
will spawn and mature. With water
storage other than the lake, less
water will be released into the
coastal estuaries and the water that
is released will be cleaner. It will be
an ecosystem that can provide
dean safe drinking water, water to
support agriculture and storage
areas that will allow pollutants to
settle out and stop fouling the rivers.
Parts of the Kissimmee River will be
slowed by restoring the oxbows
and adding basins along the way
again to store water. Water conser-
vation areas and reservoirs become
areas for recreation and habitat for
endangered species. More storage
will help restore the flow of clean
water to the Everglades.

Let the chips fly


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Urban legend shares the story
of a time when Michelangelo was
preparing to start work on a big
slab of marble. A crowd formed as
people gath-
ered around to
watch the mas-
ter in his work.
One little girl in
particular was
fascinated by
the sight of
chips flying and
the sound of
mallet on chis- John
el. Unable to Hicks
contain her
curiosity, the little girl inquired,
"What are you making?" Michelan-
gelo replied, "There is an angel in
there and I must set it free."
When we made the decision to
become Christians, we were pre-
sented a large cold white marble
block called religion at our confir-
mation or conversion. Religion is
not our goal but it is the place we
must first start. Religion is a marble
slab and we have to find, like
Michelangelo, the angel inside.
This angel of our religion is faith,
and our task is to take the mallet in
hand and set to work to form it and
set it free for all to see.
We say we are the Church,
Christians, or Disciples. There are
many names with varying degrees
of meaning but in the end they all
describe the same thing. We are
not just a business or institution.
We are a people of Faith. We are
born through faith, live by faith,
and die in faith. faith in Jesus
Christ. Faith can set us free if we
know how to live it. The first small
step we take in doing this is learn-
ing to believe just a little. Jesus does
not ask us to have a mountains'
worth of faith, just a seeds' worth.
A young boy by the name of
James had dreams of becoming
rich and famous by making and
selling cheese. After making his
cheese, he would load his horse
drawn wagon and drive down the


streets of Chicago to sell the
cheese. As the months passed, the
young boy began to despair. In
spite of his long hours and hard
work, things were not working out
well and he was not making any
money.
One day James pulled his horse
to a stop and began to talk to him.
He said, "Paddy, there is something
wrong. We are not doing it right. I
am afraid we have things turned
around and our priorities are not
where they ought to be. Maybe we
ought to serve God and place him
first in our lives." The boy drove
home and made a covenant that
for the rest of his life he would first
serve God and then would work as
God directed.
Many years after this, the young
boy, now a man, stood as Sunday
School Superintendent at North
Shore Baptist Church in Chicago
and said, "I would rather be a lay-
man in the North Shore Baptist
Church than to head the greatest
corporation in America. My first job
is serving Jesus."
So, every time you take a take a
bite of Philadelphia Cream cheese,
sip a cup of Maxwell House, mix a
quart of Kool-Aid, slice up a
DiGiorno Pizza, cook a pot of Mac-
aroni & Cheese, spread some Grey
Poupon, stir a bowl of Cream of
Wheat, slurp down some Jell-O,
eat the cream out of the middle of
an Oreo cookie, or serve some
Stove Top Stuffing, remember a
boy, his horse named Paddy, and
the promise little James L. Kraft
made to serve God and work as He
directed.
In my chiseling, I have learned
this simple truth: Jesus isn't inter-
ested in the quantity of our faith
just the quality of it. A little boy's
faith is more than enough. More
significantly, Scriptures tell us that it
only takes a mustard seeds' worth
if it's genuine. So, chisel with me
and let the chips fly, and let us find
the faith that lives inside, and let us
create the masterpiece that God
intends us to be.

When I want a simple answer and it doesn't come


By The Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Accounting was never one of
my stronger abilities. My father
was an accountant and his advice
was "Pretend it's your money then
you'll be careful about handling
it." I used to get the bottom lines to
balance, but usually got the totals
wrong. So much for my experi-
ences with accounting! What I
learned, though, that it wasn't just
moving numbers from one col-
umn to another. It was more
involved than that. There were
decisions to be made about how
to charge items off, what was
added or deducted as deprecia-
tion, how to account for items in
storage and their cost; last-in-first-
out, or last-in-last-out. It turned out
to be very, very involved and
something that required a great
deal of application.
When it comes to religion, it
gets involved, too. There was a
man who told a minister that all
he needed to know about reli-
gion was summed up in the
Lord's Prayer and the Ten Com-
mandments. The minister


replied "and all I need to know
about astronomy is summed up
in 'Twinkle, Twinkle, Little
Star'." There is an acquaintance
with faith I
that leads to
appreciation
of it, but it
may not be
as simple as
it first
seems. I
remember
learning
"Now I lay SamuelS.
me down to Thomas
sleep, the
Lord I pray my soul to keep, If I
should die before I wake, the
Lord I pray my soul to take,
Amen" and it filled the bill as a
bedtime prayer when I was very
young. Later, bedtime prayers
included people and problems,
asking God to get involved in
my life or someone else's, trying
to remember to be thankful
once and awhile, and being per-
plexed about why things hap-
pened to people, including me.
The questions brought the real-
ization that my relation with God
was more involved than "Now 1


lay me down to sleep..." and that
some searching was needed if I
was ever going to get an answer.
What looked simple was simple,
but it was complicated too. I've
learned that when we want an
easy answer, the answer may not
be quick or easy after all. I'd like to
know about an easy answer to
questions about "Why war?" or
"Why people can't get along?" or
"Why does God let such things
happen?" It takes some work to
see God's hand in such things; but
the effort is well worth it.
There are many things I have
come to believe that are not easy
to believe. Some are distinctly reli-
gious; the notion of a "trinity", that
prayer works, that in spite of
everything God wants us to be
with Him, that evil will not ulti-
mately triumph, and on and on. I
know that God is three and God is
one; simple to say and not to be
understood easily. I also know that
it works in my life along with the
other paradoxes that come my
way. I have been told "No" when
I've prayed when I've wanted to
hear "Yes" but it hasn't kept me
from praying. There seem to be
times when I get the hoped-for


answers to my prayers and other
times that things only seem to get
worse; and I know there is no sim-
ple explanation for when there are
"yes's" and when there are "no's."
I believe that if I-keep at it, and
work toward getting it right one
day, there will be more "yes's"
than "no's" because I'll get a step
closer of how to do it right and
what God wants to see happen.
I have also found that with the
willingness to allow for the diffi-
cult answer, there comes a certain
peace. The recognition that "this
isn't going to be as simple as I
wanted it to be" brings with it a
knowledge that I'm going to have
to get busy if I am to understand
where God is in all that is going
on; with the faith that "Surely, God
is in here somewhere" and it's
time to start looking even if He
isn't in the obvious places. I know
if I had stuck with accounting that
one day I'd figure out what it was
all about and how to get it right. I
picked another path instead and
am still on it; and I've learned to be
thankful when things are simple
or easy; and to search diligently
when they're not. God is in there;
that will see me through.

Water managers approve



limited duck hunting on STA's


Stormwater treatment
areas (STA) STA 1 West, STA
3/4 and STA 5 will be open
for a special September
duck season, both phases of
the Waterfowl and Coot sea-
sons, and the Youth Water-
fowl Hunt.
The Governing Board of
the South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) approved yester-
day a resolution that will
allow the extremely popular
duck hunting seasons to
continue at stormwater
treatment areas STA 1 West
in central Palm Beach Coun-
ty, STA 3/4 in western Palm
Beach County and STA 5 in
Hendry County. The resolu-
tion also increases the num-
ber of hunting permits avail-
able in the massive,
16,554-acre STA 3/4 north of
the Palm Beach/Broward
County line for the 2006-
2007 seasonal hunts. These
areas are also open to other
passive recreational uses
such as bird watching.
The STA managers and
Land Stewardship Division
of the SFWMD reviewed the
impacts of the waterfowl
hunts held in the STAs since
2004 and found no interfer-
ence with the STA water
cleansing operations. STAs
are large, constructed wet-
lands that contain aquatic
plants that take up phospho-
rus from the water before it
enters the Everglades. Too
much phosphorus causes
undesirable effects such as
the uncontrolled growth of
algae and invasive vegeta-
tion, which can be detri-
mental to the Everglades
ecosystem. Over the last
decade, 36,000 acres of
treatment areas and


"By establishingthese areas as public small
game hunting areas helps meet SFWMD's
mission to make all public lands available
for the appropriate recreational uses with-
out compromising legislative and District
mandates to protect the resources."
Michael Collins,
District Governing Board member and chairman
of the Water Resources Advisory Commission


improved farming practices
combined have prevented
2,200 tons of phosphorus
from entering the Ever-
glades. Input from the STA
managers, Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and hunter
user groups supported the
idea of the limited hunts.
Duck hunting in the STAs,
generally considered some
of the finest in the nation, is
managed by the FWC,
which issues free permits on
a first-come first-served
basis. As in the previous four
years, restrictions and pro-
cedures will be in place to
protect the District's facili-
ties and ensure the contin-
ued operation of the STAs.
"By establishing these
areas as public small game
hunting areas helps meet
SFWMD's mission to make
all public lands available for
the appropriate recreational
uses without compromising
legislative and District man-
dates to protect the
resources," said Michael
Collins, District Governing
Board member and chair-
man of the Water Resources
Advisory Commission,
which made the hunting
recommendation to the


board.
It is estimated that almost
4,000 people will be able to
hunt in the STAs this year,
representing 20 percent of
the 20,000 licensed duck
hunters in Florida.
The season opens in late
September and runs
through January. The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission will
begin issuing STA waterfowl
hunting permits at 10 a.m.
on Aug. 29. Worksheets will
be available approximately
two weeks before this time.
To apply for a permit,
hunters must first obtain an
application worksheet at
any FWC Regional Office, or
from the web at
MyFWC.com/hunting
uotahunt to select desir-
able dates and time periods.
The hunter then applies at
any tax collector's office, or
for a small convenience fee,
via the internet at
MyFWC.com/license, or by
phone at 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA (486-8356). Per-
mits are not available from
license agents, such as
sporting goods stores or
tackle shops. Applications
are not accepted through
the mail.


Florida's EAA reservoir project


receives federal approval


MIAMI In another impor-
tant milestone for Everglades
restoration, on July 12, Flori-
da received federal approval
to begin construction of a
massive reservoir in the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area
(EAA). The flagship project of
the state's Acceler8 initiative
to fast-track eight key restora-
tion projects, the reservoir
will provide a new option for
redirecting and storing Lake
Okeechobee water releasesn
thus reducing harmful, dis-
charges to coastal estuaries.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers presented the federal
permit, which authorizes the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District(SFWMD)to
build the EAA Reservoir
south of Lake Okeechobee,
at today's Governing Board
meeting in Miami.
"By acquiring this permit
and beginning construction,
Florida is keeping its promise
to restore the famed River of
Grass and protect Florida's
estuaries," Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Pro-
tection Secretary Colleen
Castille said. "Water storage
is a key element to the
restoration process, not only
for controlling water releases '
but also for flood protection
and wildlife habitat restora-
tion."
The EAA Reservoir will be
constructed on a 16,700-acre
parcel in western Palm Beach
County, just west of US 27.
When complete, the above-
ground structure will store up
to 190,000 acre-feet of water,
or 62 billion gallons of water.
The reservoir will also
improve operational flexibili-
ty for moving water within
the EAA, optimizing water
flows into stormwater treat-
ment areas. Other project
benefits include storage of
stormwater runoff in the
EAA, additional water to
meet Everglades water needs
and improved regional flood
protection.

Question: Dear Doc
Savvy. I have always thought
a dog should be fed only
once a day. Recently I read
that it is better to feed a dog
twice daily. What is your
opinion? And, how many
times a day do you feed a
puppy?
Thanks, Georgia, Visiting
Belle Glade, but from New
York City!
Answer: Welcome Geor-
gia! Ok, here's the poop
scoop on feeding. For pup-
pies, at least three to four
times a day, then gradually
to 2 times daily. My opinion

on feeding adult dogs is two


"By acquiring this permit and beginning
construction, Florida is keeping its prom-
ise to restore the famed River of Grass
and protect Florida's estuaries. Water
storage is'a key element to the restoration
process, not only for controlling water
releases but also for flood protection and
wildlife habitat restoration."
Colleen Castille,
Florida Department of
Environmental Protection Secretary


Kevin McCarty, Chairman
of the SFWMD Governing
Board, received the required
construction permit from the
U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers.
"This permit is vital to our
environmental restoration
progress," McCarty said. "The
planning, engineering design
and agency coordination
needed has been enormous,
and I'm extremely pleased
with the results. We are ready
to start building."
State legislators, county
commissioners, representa-
tives of federal/state/local
agencies and other organiza-
tions were also on hand to
witness the presentation.
"Granting this permit is a
vital step forward for restor-
ing and protecting our estuar-
ies," said Michael DiTerlizzi,
Vice Chairman of the Martin
County Board of Commis-
sioners. "These waterways
are the lifeblood of our com-
munities."
Tammy Hall, Chair-
woman of the Lee County
Board of Commissioners,
agreed. "We strongly support
-any project that will provide
additional storage opportuni-
ties for Lake Okeechobee
water," she said. "We depend
on the estuaries for our envi-
ronmental and economic
health."
Construction will be man-


aged by a joint venture of
Barnard Construction Com-
pany, Inc., and Parsons Water
& Infrastructure, Inc. The
$400 million contract was
awarded to Barnard-Parsons
earlier this summer. Ground-
breaking is scheduled for
next month.
Announced by Governor
Jeb Bush in October 2004,
Acceler8 is stepping up the
pace for funding, design and
construction to complete
eight critical Everglades
restoration projects over
seven years. At substantial
savings to taxpayers, the proj-
ects will restore 100,000 acres
of wetlands, expand water
treatment areas by close to
29,000 acres and provide
428,000 acre-feet of addition-
al water storage for Ever-
glades restoration a decade
ahead of schedule.
Under the leadership of
Governor Bush, Florida. has
forged ahead to implement
the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan with
an investment of $1.3 billion
and a commitment for an
additional $3.2 billion
through the end of the
decade to clean up and
restore the famed River of
Grass.

times a day as well. This is
much, more healthy for the
metabolism and digestive
tract. Feeding dogs once a


day will cause them to over
eat simply because they are
so hungry. Sometimes dogs
will inhale there food
because they are so fam-
ished and they end up regur-
gitating their meal. Deep-
chested dogs have a much
higher incidence of bloating
if fed only once a day. Bloat
is many times a very serious
medical and surgical emer-
gency, and can be avoided
with several smaller meals
during the day.
Hope that answers the
question Georgia. Best
Wishes, Doc Savvy.
