Funding for storm relief


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY At last
week's Clewiston City Commis-
sion meeting, commissioners
voted unanimously to approve an
interlocal agreement for Recovery
Initiative Funding that would ben-
efit the cities of Clewiston and
LaBelle and provide much-need-
ed monies to continue the post-
hurricane relief effort.


Working hand-in-hand, the
three entities hope that the appli-
cation will be approved and the
funding for hurricane-related costs
is made a reality.
If approved, the grant would
provide $6.7 million in grant fund-
ing from the state to the county
and cities. After last year's Hurri-
cane Wilma, elected officials
remain focused on helping the
area back to its feet.
According to information pro-


vided at the meeting, 70 percent of
the funding will be used toward
housing efforts, with the remain-
ing 30 percent to be utilized for a
new emergency operations center
to service the local cities.
According to the director of
grants and special projects for the
county, Ron Zimmerly, "This
process will require some time to
get it in full swing."
According to him, the applica-
tion must still go through the prop-


Hurricane victims: Future homeowners


er channels before the county is
notified that the funding has been
approved.
After getting the signature of
both Clewiston and LaBelle offi-
cials, the county will review the
finished application and submit it
to the state, which is providing the
funding dollars.
The county will know, 30 days
later, whether or not the applica-
tion was approved.
The money, being handled


through the county, is only avail-
able to area residents who meet
certain income guidelines. Those
receiving the money will then be
able to use the funding to help pay
for the much-needed hurricane
repairs, the sight of which can still
be seen on homes and buildings
in and around the Clewiston area.
Anticipating the approval of the
funding, the SHIP program will
handle the application process
and disbursement of funds.

Fair to come

Joaquin and Rachel Garcia are the lucky owners of a home that is being built for them
after last year's storm destroyed their home. CREW, a non-profit agency in Clewiston.
worked to get the Garcias their new home at no cost.

CREW helps in rebuilding lives


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON After watch-
ing their home destroyed in last
year's fierce storm season,
Joaquin and Rachel Garcia did-
n't know who they were going
to turn to for help.
Having lived in the residence
for about 20 years, the two saw
their lives disappear when
Wilma barreled down Clewis-
ton, leaving the powerful gusts,
heavy rains and their home,
only distant memories.
Last week, though, the Gar-
cias had something to smile
about.
CREW, a local non-profit
agency that has stepped into the
role of helping families find
relief after the busy hurricane
season last year, gathered
enough volunteers and got
started on building the Garcias
a new home from the ground
up.
CREW, based in Clewiston,


offers help to civic, social serv-
ice and faith-based groups dur-
ing times of disasters. When the
group learned about the Gar-
cias, officials at CREW knew it
was time to help.
Last week workers and
CREW staff were busy plugging
away at their first effort at build-
ing a home, securing all the
necessary permits and getting
volunteers to help.
Like others after last year, the
Garcias were victims of the hur-
ricane. The family; which has
lived in Clewiston for more than
30 years, saw the worst that a
storm has to offer.
Upset with their loss, they
turned to their insurance com-
pany to collect a meager
$25,000, not enough to replace
everything they had worked for
in the last 30 years and certainly
not enough with which to build
from scratch. ,
Mr. Garcia is a retired U.S.
Sugar employee, who finds


himself, struggling with long-
time health issues that on occa-
sion require surgery. Mr. Garcia
has had several heart surgeries
since retiring in 1990.
"It's been rough, these past
nine months," said Mr. Garcia
last week.
His wife, Rachel, meanwhile
has been the foundation that
holds the family together. Ms.
Garcia frequently is the babysit-
ter to eight grandchildren and
one great-grandchild.
The couple will be celebrat-
ing their 50th wedding anniver-
sary this September.
Without a home, though,
there didn't seem to be that
much cause for celebration.
That's when CREW stepped
in.

Local elections



coming up


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY The
Hendry County Supervisor of
Elections Office is preparing for
the upcoming elections. It
seems as though this year will
be much slower than previous
years, with the majority of the
incumbents seeking re-election
without any opposition.
The qualifying period for.the
election ended last Friday.
In the race for a seat on the
Hendry County Commission,
the terms of Darrell R. Harris
and Kevin McCarthy are ending
this year. Both Harris and
McCarthy qualified for the elec-
tions, and, without any opposi-


tion, will once again assume
their seats on the board.
For the Hendry County
School Board, seats 1, 3 and 5
were available. Rick Murphy
was unopposed so he keeps
his seat, as does Pat Langford.
They hold seats 1 and 3, respec-
tively.
Incumbent John Perry, who
holds seat 5, is being opposed
by two candidates. They are:
Cynthia Potter and Matthew
"Matt" Beatty, who have both
qualified to participate in the
election.
The primary election will be
held on Sept. 5 with the general

Christian School is getting ready
to open its doors to the commu-
nity, preparing for its first school
year.
There are still many things to
do, officials with the school said,
including finishing up the class-
rooms, with decorations yet to be
hung and desks and chairs to be
organized. The school is getting
closer every day for its grand
opening.
The school, located at 601
Caribbean Ave. in Clewiston, has
the capacity to offer grades
Kindergarten to sixth grade.
Working off an existing building,
the school will feature several
classrooms, a full science lab and
a computer room where aca-
demic programs will be adminis-


tered. A library, cafeteria and
prayer room round out the
amenities offered at the school.
Construction is almost com-
plete on the Pre-K building, Little
Lions Pre-school, where three
and four year-olds will be
enrolled.
Presently, one of the goals of
the school's administration is to
create a kitchen area, where the
school can cook meals for stu-
dents. As it stands, students will
have to take lunches to school, at
least initially.
The school has been working
since October of 2005 toward the
goal.

Heavy equipment training event in Pahokee


PAHOKEE Acceler8 is the
name of the everglades restora-
tion projects undertaken by the
South Florida Water Management
District. As the name implies, the
myriad projects around the
Glades have been given the green
light from state and federal regu-
latory agencies and are slated for
fast track construction. As part of
this process there will be a great
demand for heavy equipment
operators as these projects gear
up and reach full momentum.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District, Workforce
Alliance, Palm Beach Community
College and National Equipment
Training School have teamed up
to provide a Heavy Equipment


Training Program designed to get
Glades residents the training nec-
essary to fill the well paying, high
demand positions.
Upon completion of the train-
ing graduates are eligible for posi-
tions as heavy equipment opera-
tors that pay from $12-$20 per
hour. Graduates will be eligible
for positions with many of the
contractors that will be working
on South Florida Water Manage-
ment District projects in the
Glades area. Job placement assis-
tance from National Equipment
Training is also available for grad-
uates.
On Thursday, July 20, many
members of the Pahokee com-
munity came together to present
an outreach event that attracted


100 community residents. Food
and refreshments were provided
to all attendees as they received
valuable career information.
The event was hosted by the
Reverend Willie Hickman and the
Pahokee Deliverance Christian
Center. Pastor Danny Moore of
the Pahokee Church of the
Nazarene supplied, set up and
took down the revival style tent
that shielded the participants
from the elements. The Commu-
nity Partnership Group's Pahokee
Beacon and the Pahokee Com-
munity Relations Board, and the
Glades Community Development
Corporation were the co-spon-
sors of the event.
Interested residents can speak
with Acceler8 representatives on


July 28 at 3 p.m. at the Pahokee
Beacon Center, Portable 3. Repre-
sentatives will be available the last
Friday of each month at the Bea-
con Center to meet with interest-
ed participants.
The Community Partnership
Group's Pahokee Beacon Center
will partner with Palm Beach
Community College to provide
tutoring and mentoring for Paho-
kee residents entering the train-
ing.

HENDRY COUNTY After the
past few hurricane seasons, every-
one has become aware, and in
some cases painfully aware, that
the best way to protect your family
from the effects of a disaster is to
have a disaster plan. If you are an
animal or pet owner, that plan
should include your animals as
well.
Before a hurricane or other
emergency, ask friends, relatives,
or others outside your area
whether they could shelter your
animals. If you have more than
one pet, they may be more com-
fortable together; but be prepared
to house them separately.


Contact hotels and motels out-
side your immediate area to check
policies on accepting pets and
restrictions on number, size and
species. Ask if "no pet" policies
could be waived in an emergency.
Keep a list of "pet friendly" places,
including phone numbers, with
other disaster information and
supplies. Lists of animal friendly
establishments can be found on
the web. Create a disaster supply
kit for your pet. In the event of an
emergency you may have to leave
your home quickly. Your pet relies
upon you to take care of him or
her. Your pet's disaster kit should
include:


Medications and medical
records in a waterproof container
Sturdy leashes and/or carriers
A 3 day supply of food and
potable water with bowls
Litter and litter box for cats
A picture of your pet(s) in
case they get lost.
Before leaving home, make
sure all dogs and cats are wearing
collars that are securely fastened
and have ID tags containing up-to-
date information. If your pet
becomes lost or is separated from
you this will help ensure their safe
return.
As you make your plans this
season, be aware that Hendry


County currently does not have
provisions for animal shelters in
case of a hurricane and space with
local veterinarians and other shel-
ters is extremely limited. The only
exception to this policy is service
animals that assist people with dis-
abilities.
Make your plans and make
them now.

you by the Hendry County Emer-
gency Support Function 17, Ani-
mal Control Unit based at the
Hendry County Extension Office.

Area located northwest of Lake

land acquisition, the land,


Special to INI/South Florida Water Management District

4 OPINION


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, July 27, 2006


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.con/forum52. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as
you would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or
profanities, please). Comments will be published in the newspaper as
space permits.

SEX OFFENDERS: Instead of the sheriff worrying about where he
doesn't want offenders to live he should be worrying about where
they are going to have to live. He says he cares about all the people
of this county but he wants to push these offenders out on people
who don't quite have a say in these restrictions. We will be the peo-
ple who encounter those who the sheriff doesn't want to deal with
and it isn't quite fair to the county taxpayers. Offenders are every-
where and are even employed in very public places and
agencies, walking around demanding respect that they shouldn't
have simply because backs are turned. (Editor's note: The proposed
restrictions on where registered sex offenders may live were being
considered by the City of Clewiston, not the county sheriff. The sher-
iff's department has jurisdiction throughout Hendry County.)

COMMENT ONLINE: Can you post Speak Out comments online?
Editor's notes: Yes! Go online at http://www.newszapforums.
com/forum52/ and post your comments. You may reply to an exist-
ing topic of discussion or add a new topic.

DANGEROUS ATVS: I can't believe how many parents just let
their kids run wild on the ATVs. There are constantly accidents and
serious injuries. Just ask anyone who works in an emergency room.
I believe Florida statutes say that anyone under the age of 16 must
wear a helmet while riding an ATV the same as for bicycles. And
that anyone underage must be under supervision of a parent. ATVs
cannot be ridden on public roads paved or unpaved that are
open to regular traffic. If a road is a public road for licensed motor
vehicles then it is NOT open to unlicensed motor vehicles. It's dan-
gerous to have these ATVs on the road with cars. As for private
property, that is up to the property owner. It is trespassing if you are
on someone else's land without permission.

ENFORCE THE LAW: I think that it is more correct to say that ille-
gal immigration hurts Americans rather than American workers.
We can put the blame anywhere we want, but I don't blame the ille-
gal immigrants. I don't blame the employers either. They certainly
are not document experts. The whole blame 100 percent of it -
goes to the American government for not enforcing its laws. Our
borders must be protected and our government is not protecting
the borders. If 12 million Mexicans can walk over then anybody can
walk over. Maybe the safest place for Osama to hide would along
the Rio Grande. Maybe he's there already. If we can't keep illegal
aliens from walking across our border it's no wonder we can't keep
ATVs off our public streets. The greatest danger we face is not peo-
ple breaking the law. It's our public officials' failure to enforce the
laws we already have.

HENDRY COUNTY Hendry
County's unemployment rate,
currently the highest in the state,
increased in June to 7.5 percent,
up from May's rate of 5.0 per-
cent. However, the county's
unemployment rate is still lower
than last year's at this time. The
unemployment rate for June
2005 was 8.9 percent.
According to the State of
Florida Department of Labor,
Hendry County has a labor force
of 16,389 persons with 1,261
persons currently unemployed.
Florida's unemployment rate
in June 2006 was 3.0 percent,
down from May's 3.2 percent
and down 0.8 percentage points
from 3.8 percent a year ago. Job
growth in June continued to be
robust, as the state added
270,900 jobs over the year,
growing at 3.5 percent, more
than twice the national rate. The
national rate of growth was 1.4
percent for the same period.
Based on the latest available
data, Florida continues to lead
other states in the nation in the
number of new jobs created and
has the fastest rate of job growth
and the lowest unemployment
rate among the ten most popu-
lous states.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for June


2006 of 3.0 percent was 1.6 per-
centage points lower than the
national rate of 4.6 percent.
Job growth by sector was led
by Professional and Business
Services (+66,000 jobs), Con-
struction (+43,500 jobs), Trade,
Transportation and Utilities
(+40,700 jobs), and Leisure and
Hospitality (+30,200 jobs). The
construction industry had the
fastest rate of growth of all sec-
tors, growing by 7.5 percent
over the year.
The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-
Miami Beach MSA led the state
in employment growth
(+60,500 jobs, +2.6 percent),
followed by the Orlando-Kissim-
mee and Tampa-St. Petersburg-
Clearwater MSAs with over-the-
year job growth in June 2006 of
+41,400 jobs and +33,000 jobs,
respectively.
In June 2006, Walton County
had the lowest unemployment
rate at 2.1 percent.

other Lake Okeechobee area
counties in June included: Palm

Before the season starts take a course


By Tony Young
Tony.Young@MyFWC.com
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission
With the dog-days of summer
.upon us, it's hard to think about
'hunting. But if you're between
the age of 16 and 30, and haven't
yet taken the state's hunter safe-
ty class now's just the time to
think about it. Many of these
classes, offered statewide, fill up
fast during hunting season while
people scramble to get certified.
Summer months offer smaller
class sizes and make for a better
opportunity for students to take
a class, while they have more
free time.
Everyone 16 years old or older
and born after May 31, 1975,
must complete the FWC's hunter
safety requirement before they
can buy a Florida hunting license.
This year, there's an excep-
tion: A new law approved by the
Florida Legislature and signed by
the governor allows individuals
to hunt under the supervision of a
licensed hunter, 21 years old or
older, without having to com-
plete the state's hunter safety cer-
tification.
It's called the "Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption," and
enables those persons to pur-
chase a Florida hunting license
and hunt for a one-year trial
basis. It's designed to encourage
experienced hunters to teach


byTonyYoung

novice hunters about our sport
and a great incentive for getting
more people to give hunting a try.
Individuals taking advantage of
this "try-before-you-buy"
approach would have to pass a
hunter safety class to be eligible
to hunt the following year.
If you're a youngster and
already hunt, I suggest you go
ahead and take a hunter safety
class before you turn 16. Of
course until then, you may hunt
under adult supervision.
You can register for a hunter
safety class by going to
MyFWC.com/huntersafety or by
contacting your nearest FWC
regional office. Also, there are
two versions for your conven-
ience.
There's the traditional course,
which is 12 hours of classroom
instruction plus a four-hour "field
day," or you can opt for taking the
online or CD-ROM version at
home. But, you'll still have to sign
up for the "skills day" part.
The traditional course is


offered during four weekdays or
on a Saturday/Sunday. If you take
it during the week, each session is
three hours and offered after nor-
mal working hours. On the week-
end, you'll spend eight hours Sat-
urday and four hours Sunday
morning in the classroom. The
remainder of Sunday you'll move
over to the shooting range to
complete your certification.
The first thing you'll learn
about taking the traditional class
is Florida's many hunting laws.
An FWC law enforcement officer
gives this introduction. Volunteer
hunter safety instructors teach
the remaining curriculum.
You'll be taught ethics, hunter
responsibility, parts of firearms
(including a muzzleloader), vari-
ous hunting lingo and the proper
way to shoot. You'll discover the
differences between various bul-
lets, calibers and gauges; how to
identify game animals; and learn
wildlife conservation and best
management practices for native
species. In addition, you'll find
out about outdoor survival tech-
niques and learn how to adminis-
ter first aid in the field. Archery
and fundamentals of bowhunting
also are taught.
In your last hour in the class-
room, you'll be given a standard-
ized test of true and false and
multiple choice questions. All
you need to do is score 80 per-
cent or better and then you get to
move outside to the shooting
range for the field day portion.


This part takes about four
hours. During that time you'll get
to shoot clay pigeons with a
shotgun, practice your archery
skills and target practice with a
.22-caliber rifle. You'll also
receive a muzzleloader demon-
stration, where you'll have the
chance to shoot one if you'd like.
All guns, bows, targets and
ammo are provided all you
have to do is take aim.
After you complete the field
day, you'll be given your hunter
safety card. At that point you can
purchase your very first Florida
hunting license and get ready for
opening day.
If you choose to take the
hunter safety class online or by
CD-ROM, you'll learn all of the
above-mentioned material and
be given a practice test to prepare
you for the last segment the
skills day.
Saturday skill days take about
five hours to complete. You'll
learn much of what is taught dur-
ing the traditional course includ-
ing hunting laws and ethics, how
to safely handle firearms, when
to take a shot and where to take
aim. Then you'll get to shoot on
the range and be given the same
standardized test. A score of 80 or
better gets you your card.
Register today to take a hunter
safety class 'cause the 2006-2007
hunting season is just around the
corner. Remember safe hunting
is NO accident!

Tax exemption helps


agricultural producers


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced on Wednes-
day, July 19, that a new state law
that takes effect this month
exempts electricity used for agri-
cultural production from the
state's sales tax.
"We are grateful that the Legis-
lature enacted this meaningful
relief measure, which will assist
our agricultural producers in help-
ing them hold down their produc-
tion costs," Mr. Bronson said.
Under terms of the law, which
took effect July 1, the exemption
requires that those requesting it
separately meter electricity used
in production activities from the
electricity used for other purpos-
es. If the electricity is centrally
metered and is used for both tax-
exempt and taxable purposes,
the purchase of the electricity is
subject to tax.


The exemption covers virtual-
ly all aspects of a farmer or
rancher's business operation,
including the preparation, plant-
ing, cultivating, harvesting and
processing of agricultural prod-
ucts. It includes aquaculture,
horticulture, floriculture, viticul-
ture, forestry, dairy, livestock,
poultry, bees and any or all forms
of farm products.
To qualify for the exemption,
agricultural producers must fur-
nish their utility provider with an
exemption certificate stating that
the electricity will be used direct-
ly and exclusively fof the produc-
tion or processing of agricultural
products. Producers can contact
the Florida Department of Rev-
enue for forms and other infor-
mation about the exemption at
www.myflorida.com/dor or
they can call the agency's taxpay-
er services section at 1 800 352-
3671 or 850 488-6800.

. School News in Brief


Submitted to Clewiston News
Youngsters from the voluntary pre-k program at Eastside Elementary School welcomed vis-
itor, Adrian Damms of the Clewiston Fire Department. Fireman Damms gave the children
important advice for staying safe and away from fires.


Special programs help pre-k


students have fun while learning


CLEWISTON The Voluntary
Pre-Kindergarten Program housed
at Eastside Elementary School has
proven to be successful for 40-50
five-year-old children who are get-
ting ready for Kindergarten. This
program has provided opportuni-
ties for them to learn the basic skills
by learning the letters of the alpha-
bet, colors, numbers, and how to
write their name through selected
curriculum, books, games, music,
and art.
Special activities were provided
when the pre- kindergarten teach-
ers partnered with members of the
community to enhance specific
themes such as "All About Me",
"Families", "Animals", "Weather",
"Plants" and "Seasons".
Special thanks to Adriana Soto
for letting us use her patriotic outfits
for our Fourth of July parade;
Danielle Domrase for donating her
clown costume to Eastside's Media
Center and Adrian Damms for
bringing the Clewiston Fire Engine
and demonstrating his job as a fire
fighter in this community. He
instilled the importance of fire safe-
ty by giving each student fire safety


Voluntary Pre-k students enjoyed a visit from Clewiston Fire
Department Fireman, Adrian Damms. The fireman is showing
children how protective fire equipment works.


coloring books and badges. Project
H.O.P.E. presented a puppet show
about animals surviving through a
hurricane. The students related to
animal safety in relationship to their
own safety and fears during a hurri-
cane.


These opportunities have
helped to prepare the students for
the upcoming school year in hope
that the school setting will be more
familiar to them and that students
will have developed more social
skills to enhance learning.


CHS Tigerettes attend MA camp


By Nicole Curny
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
High School Tigerettes attended a
marching auxiliary camp at Nova
Southeastern University in Ft.
Lauderdale on July 1. This was a
three-day camp that helped the
girls learn techniques of flag,
dance, and baton.
At camp, each girl chose rou-
tines that they wanted to perform.
At the end of the night, the girls
performed one routine in front of
judges. The judges rated each girl
on their performance and told
them what they needed to work
on and what they did well.
A blue ribbon was rewarded to
the girls who did a superior job on
the routine; a red ribbon was
given to the girls that did an excel-
lent job on the routine. Other rib-
bons were given accordingly to
the other girls who performed.
But all the girls in the CHS
Tigerette group received red and
blue ribbons.
At the marching camp, the
trainers and counselors chose
girls who they thought went
above and beyond the call of duty.
These girls had to show good
sportsmanship and good atti-
tudes. The girls who showed
those qualities were chosen to be
All-Stars. Seven girls from the CHS
Tigerettes were chosen as All-

Stars.
The eight girls have the chance
to join other All-Stars and perform
at the Capital One Bowl in Orlan-
do in December. They will spend
six days in Orlando preparing for
the performance.
Tickets to Universal Studios,
Islands of Adventure, and Disney
World are included in this trip.
According to the coaches, it
was a great experience for the


girls who were chosen. It gives
them the chance to show off their
skills before a large audience and
also gives them a chance to inter-
act with other people that share
the same interests.
Learning more skills from oth-
ers is another benefit to this trip..
Congratulations to all of these
girls for putting in the hard work
at camp, and especially to the All-
Stars girls.

Incredible edible native plants of central Florida


By Ed Ayen, Florida Yards &
Neighborhood
Special to INI
You may not realize it, but
some of those carefree native
Florida plants and trees are edi-
ble; at least parts of them are. So
if you are thinking of replacing
some of your lawn with plant-
ings of native plants, shrubs and
trees why not put in something
you can eat.
The Red Mulberry (Morus
rubra) has edible berries that
may be eaten fresh from the tree
or you can make mulberry pie,
sauce, jam or jelly. The Mulberry
tree is deciduous so it will lose it
leaves during the winter
months. It is a medium size
shade or background tree with
large, rough textured, showy
leaves and it fruits in the spring.
The delicious fruit also attracts
birds and other wildlife.
We usually think of Purslane
(Portulaca oleracea) as a weed,
but remember a "weed" is only
a plant out of place. Purslane or
fatweed makes a wonderful
ground cover and its' succulent
leaves and stems may be eaten
raw in salads or steamed. The
flavor is said to be similar to
green beans, watercress or

followed by equally attractive,
bright red berries in the fall.
The fruit is well liked by many
birds and animals.

Garcias build the new home.
Surveying the site of their new
house, Mr. Garcia was happy.
"My wife and I are truly grate-
ful to all those who have helped
us," he said. "We want to also
thank all of the community for
their donations and volunteer
labor."
At least now, he said, he had
something to look forward to.


Principal Marjorie Burlison
looks forward to the grand open-
ing.
"The biggest thing we can do
for this community, the students
and their families, is to provide an
excellent education, and support
the parents in raising their children
with a strong foundation."

height and can be used as a
screening or background plant.
The showy black fruit provide
food for birds in the wintertime.
To prepare the leaves for tea, dry
them and then roast in an oven
until golden brown. Steep them
in boiling water for two minutes
and enjoy!
The Flowering Dogwood
(Cornus florida) is a small tree,
growing from 15 to 25 feet tall.
The tree was not used for food,
however, the Indians stripped
the young branches and chewed
them to clean their teeth. The
juice of the twigs is useful in pre-
serving gums.
The American Persimmon
(Diospyros virginiana) is a slow
growing deciduous tree with
delicious two inch orange fruit
when fully ripe. The tree can
grow up to fifty feet in height
when fully mature. Two or more
trees are necessary for pollina-
tion purposes. Ripe persim-
mons are delicious eaten from
the tree and can be made into
puddings and cakes, while dried
persimmons are like dates.

We hear a good deal about
leadership these days. People pay
attention to ratings of leaders and
some systems of accountability
now have students rating teach-
ers or employees rating their
bosses. Leadership in our society
is designed to be by elected offi-
cials; those who are given posi-
tions of leading by assuring those
who elect them that they will be
heard when decisions are made.
Leaders in voluntary organiza-
tions rely on the appeal of their
office to motivate people to
respond to the purposes or ideals
of the organization.
Church leaders rely on the
cooperation of those with whom
they share their responsibilities.
We hear of "approval ratings" and
of concerns about being re-elected
when the leaders find themselves
differing from those they have led.
It has occurred to me that leader-
ship is not always having the best
idea or being ahead, but of under-


Ul r tcLUi/ aUIL in IIIL aiu/ t rpi C eIU I /11m
inister/superior/commander/what-
ever. Leadership means that some-
one is to be led;
and that can
happen willing-
ly or unwilling-
ly.
The real
leader, though,
understands
why he or she
is in that posi-
tion and can Samuel S.
move others to Thomas
follow because
he or she knows something about
the people who give the power.
There is a Biblical account, well-
known, about a woman caught in
a compromising situation and the
penalty for her transgression is to
be stoned to death (John 8:3ff).
She is brought before the group
that is to stone her to death and
the Lord is there.
The leaders tell him "She was
caught in the act" and what do


LInaL. JJesus is cau.l;tJ U /11 t l ll ulpo up
but He "bent down and started to
write on the ground with His fin-
ger (v. 6)" They kept on question-
ing Him, He straightened up and
said to them "If any one of you is
without sin, let him be the first to
throw a stone at her" and then
stooped down and wrote some
more on the ground. The crowd
began to go away one at a time
until there was nobody left but
Jesus and the accused. It struck
me that the leadership exercised
here was by asking everyone
present to "put yourself in this
predicament" and to identify with
the accused. Jesus led by under-
standing the hearts of the people
involved and then seeing them-
selves in a similar situation.
He did not debate, nor did he
contradict those who were
around Him; He didn't argue or
make pronouncements. He called
for understanding by pointing out
"there but for the Grace of God go
all of you." This was understood


appeal mauci uy ie LorIv VVawO LUo
something they all could see and
understand, and He brought out
of that crowd something deep
within-a capacity to see them-
selves in others. I've heard that
persons who say "We have all of
the answers" usually don't like for
anyone to ask questions.
I like it the other way; ask
questions and you'll make it pos-
sible for us to understand each
other. Let those called to lead do
so by their having something to
offer and by listening to those
who entrust them with that posi-
tion. One commentator said "If
you get too far ahead of your own
troops, you can be shot in the
back" and he had a point.
The motto on our currency, "E
pluribus unum" or "out of many,
one" speaks of the bond between
those who lead and those who
follow: You come from us, be one
of us and inspire by sharing what
we're all about."


Youth mission program celebrating Eliza's gift


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every now and then you run
across a special person that does
great things in a quiet way to help
promote great things in God's
kingdom. Let
me share with
you one such
angel that
blessed my life.
It started
when a lady by
the name of
Hurricane
Wilma visited
us last October. John
The youth at Hicks
first United
Methodist Church were hosting a
pumpkin patch at the time to help
raise money for summer missions.
Wilma messed that up, and our
youth ended up giving away what
pumpkins weren't destroyed by
the storm.
Our community was in the
process of trying to get back on its'
feet when I received an email from
the mother of a nine-year old girl by
the name of Eliza O'Neal. Their
church in Indiana, Pa., had given


I .

First United Methodist youth ended up giving away what

what they called a Kingdom Chal-
lenge to some of the members of
its church family. Eliza was one of
the children members who
received $10 to use and multiply
with her gifts and talents for bless-
ings in God's kingdom.
Eliza had heard about the
youth group losing out on their
mission fundraising because of
the hurricane, and as a youth
wanted to use whatever she was


able to raise to help other youth
help others in missions. I told Eliza
and her mother that whatever
they were able to share would be
gratefully accepted. Involved in
hurricane recovery, I really didn't
give it much more thought. I was
blessed with the thought of a nine-
year old girl from Pennsylvania
wanted to help hurricane stricken
strangers in south Florida.
Eliza, however, was giving it a


lot of thought. Inspired to help our
youth help others, Eliza designed
and created Christmas ornaments.
These were sold to raise money
which was donated to help make
our summer youth mission possi-
ble. Eliza raised $200 which was
matched dollar for dollar by some-
one who wanted to support Eliza's
efforts and heart. In January, I was
blessed to receive one of Eliza's
ornaments and $400 for youth
mission work.
On July 16, sixteen youth from
First United Methodist Church left
Clewiston for a week of mission
work. Without Eliza's heart and
efforts, that number would have
been less. Eliza's gift was used to
enable great ministry to happen.
But more than the gift was the sup-
port and prayers and the resulting
encouragement given by someone
I had never met-by a nine year old
who wanted to make a difference
and give encouragement to other
youth to let them know that they
were not alone in their struggles.
I can imagine our Lord saying to
her, "Well done, good and faithful
servant."
I can imagine our Lord saying to
me, "Go thou and do likewise."

Kissimmee River Restoration Construction interrupts navigation


KISSIMMEE RIVER Building
on the successes of the first phase
of the Kissimmee River Restora-
tion, heavy equipment has
returned to the Kissimmee Valley to
return another four miles of the
Kissimmee River to its historic,
meandering, habitat-rich route.
Beginning on Monday, July 31,
2006, construction for this project
will interrupt navigation on the
Kissimmee River between the
Avon Park Air Force Range and two
miles south of Weir #1 for a period
of 18 months.
Construction began at the
northern end of the first phase of
restoration and is marching north-
ward, eventually backfilling about


1.5 miles of the channelized
Kissimmee River. The construction
is reconnecting historic oxbows
and recarving sections of the his-
toric river that were lost during the
1960s channelization project.
Three weirs, which were part of the
original demonstration project for
the restoration, have caused navi-


gation hazards during high flow
periods and will be removed dur-
ing the current construction phase.
This project is expected to last until
October 31,2007.
While the Kissimmee River
Restoration project seeks to restore
an ecosystem and greatly enhance
the outdoor experience of anglers
and boaters, current construction
activities will temporarily block
navigation between Lake Okee-
chobee and Lake Kissimmee. The
channel construction destroyed
nine miles of the historic river chan-
nel, so dredges are recarving the
channel to reconnect historic
oxbows. In some cases, earthen
bridges will be built across the C-38


to move fill material to construction
sites. Boaters will still be able to
enjoy all areas of the river not with-
in the boundary of the current con-
struction, including the portion
restored during the first phase of
river restoration.
Quinn Contracting, Inc., of
Falkner, Mississippi, was selected
by the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (Corps) to complete the cur-
rent $27.6 million construction
project. The work is the second of
four construction phases. Ultimate-
ly, a 22-mile stretch of the channel's
midsection in Highlands and Okee-
chobee counties will be backfilled.
The total Kissimmee River
Restoration project is scheduled to
be complete by 2012 at an estimat-
ed investment of $578 million. The
Kissimmee River Restoration proj-
ect will return flow to 43 miles of


the river's historic channel and
restore about 40 square miles of
river/floodplain ecosystem. The
project is a partnership between
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District and the Corps, with
each partner providing 50 percent
of the cost.
Instead of the straight, deep and
wide channel dug 40 years ago, the
restored section of the Kissimmee
River will again meander through
its historic and wetland-rich flood-
plain. This restoration will create
opportunities for improved fishing,
wildlife viewing and nature study.
More than 300 species of fish and
wildlife are expected to benefit
from the restoration.
In response to periodic flood-
ing, the 1960s channelization proj-
ect transformed the 103-mile
Kissimmee River into the 56-mile C-


38. The 300-foot-wide and 30-foot
deep channel achieved its flood
protection goal, but virtually elimi-
nated fish and wildlife habitat.
About 90 percent of the wintering
waterfowl population no longer
used the system and wading birds
largely disappeared. The fish com-
munity shifted to favor rough fish,
such as bowfin and gar, rather than
largemouth bass and sunfish. The
vast and diverse wetland plant
communities of the Kissimmee
River floodplain were transformed
into primarily cattle pasture.
The first phase of construction
started in June 1999 and was com-
pleted in February 2001. About
seven miles of the C-38 was back-
filled, using the spoil dredged in
1960. That effort recreated about 15
miles of the meandering Kissim-
mee River.

What's bugging my pine tree?


By Dan Culbert
Special to INI Extension Service
Horticulture Agent
Our office has received many
requests for help recently with
pine trees that suddenly die.
Many callers report piles of saw-
dust on the ground and holes in
the bark. Residents are desper-
ately seeking that magical "silver
bullet" that can bring these
anchors in their Florida Yards
back to life.
Our office is good, but we are
not divine. Many of these trees
have been dead for some time,
they just didn't know it. Today's
column will talk about how sum-
mer heat, storm damage, insects
and construction issues that can
spell doom for local pine trees.

Assessing and
restoring pines
A new Extension bulletin has
just arrived at our office, authored
by several UF professors includ-
ing Dr. Ed Gilman. It deals with
many issues on how hurricanes
have affected our urban forests.
One specific section talks about
pine trees.
What causes yellowing of the
needles and pine death? The
causes are not completely under-
stood, but it is likely due to hid-
den damage produced by bend-
ing and twisting during hurricane
force winds. Prolonged winds
may also rip smaller roots with-
out breaking the larger support
roots.
The injured stems and roots
are unable to supply the water
and nutrients needed in the


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

crown, resulting in yellow nee-
dles and pine decline. And recent
hot summer temperatures have
caused the trees to use up the last
of their reserves. They've run out
of steam.
Pines are very sensitive to
wind damage. They can snap,
uproot or lean during storms. A
pine still standing after a hurri-
cane may have internal damage
that is not visible. Before making
a decision to remove these trees,
wait and see if the tree lives.
Pines may die slowly over a
period of six months to two years
after wind storms.
Some may remain green for
a year or more, then suddenly
turn yellow and quickly progress
to brown needles.
Pines with all brown nee-
dles are dead and should be
removed.
Monitor pines carefully for
insects. Weakened pines may be
more susceptible to beetles and
diseases.
If your pines are not entirely
dead, but still showing signs of
damage, here are the steps to
take in cleaning them up after a
storm:
Step 1: Remove hazards,
such as dead, broken and hang-
ing branches.
Step 2: Remove branches
with no needles or brown nee-
dles.
Step 3: Leave branches with


yellow needles for now.
Step 4: Wait and see how
pines do the following year.

What about those
beetles?
Pine Forests in northern Flori-
da have been hammered by a
beetle known as the Southern
Pine Bark Beetle. These insects
lay eggs in the bark, hatch into
grubs, and burrow into the trunk.
These grubs can quickly attack
the pines and rapidly spread from
tree to tree. In the case of this
insect, removing infested trees is
good way to halt the spread of
this problem, BUT its' not what's
going on in our Florida Yards.
The Southern Pine Bark Beetle
(SPB) attacks only certain kinds
of pine tress, and we are fortu-
nate that this insect has not devel-
oped a taste for the kinds of Pines
found growing in our area. To the
best of our knowledge, SPB does
not eat Slash Pine or Sand Pines,
and there are very few Longleaf
Pines left growing in this area.
SPB is not causing the local piles
of sawdust.
There are several other
species of Pine Bark beetles
found on local pines, but they are
generally "decomposers". Ips
engraver beetles and the black
turpentine beetles usually attack
pines that are already dying or
dead. Spraying insecticides on
these critters will NOT be very
helpful in bring the dead tree
back to life. And using these
products will probably cause a lot
of damage to other desirable and
non-target organisms in your
Yard.


Buried alive and
run over
Pines are often found growing in
vacant land that is being developed
into sites for homes and other build-
ings. The roots extend wider that
most people are aware of and are
sensitive to long term changes in
moisture and growing conditions.

over roots will kill the pines. Adding
fill over roots will smother them.
Trees that grew up with Mother
Nature alone don't do well once
excessive irrigation, fertilizer or pesti-
cides are added to keep the new
green grass growing underneath the
branches. If any of these activities
have been around your pines, you
can often bank on spending money
to remove them before too long.
If you have enough room so
they will not fall on buildings, do
consider replanting small pines in
your Florida Yard. Plant them well
enough away so that when they
reach maturity the will not be a risk
to your roof. Groups of pines hold
up to the wind better that single
trees, so plant them in clumps.
They can add lots of diversity for
wildlife and be an important part of
our urban tree canopy. Don't give
up on them.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you need additional information on
pine trees, please email us at okee-

Government agencies working on watershed problems


By MayAnn Morris

From west of Orlando to Key
West, from Fort Myers to Stuart,
West Palm Beach, Okeechobee,
Moore Haven. Clewiston, Paho-
kee, Belle Glade and South Bay
are all in the same watershed.
South Florida does seem flat,
but in reality, it is geographically
and topographically divided into
five major "bowls" -watersheds,
water managements districts and
ours, the South Florida Water
Management District is the
largest and the southernmost.
The local area watershed has
the Kissimmee River, Lake Okee-
chobee And the Everglades,
some of the most prime farm
land in the United States (year-
around) and some of the most
prime real estate also. Land spec-
ulation has been the rule in Flori-
da since Hamilton Disston,
James Moore, Alonzo Clewis and
Henry Flagler. None of that has
changed, just different faces in a
different time.
Water is the key: fishing, boat-
ing, beaches, homes, crops,
groves, herds, enough water or
too much water.
In the early days of the state's
development, the problem was
too much water and cattle and
people drowned. In response,
government agencies diked big
Lake Okeechobee and straight-
ened the Kissimmee River. The
water drained down the Kissim-
mee faster. It was drier, but water
carried silt downriver, too, and
into the lake, where it now sits.
Population grew: more roads,
buildings and water ran fast off
them, too. But diking and drain-
ing brought new problems:
water rationing, too much fresh
water into the ocean and gulf
estuaries, muck in Lake Okee-
chobee. With the dike in place
the silt from the lake can not
spread out over the rich fields at
the south end of the lake.
In some areas of the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area, the
ground level is six feet lower than
it was a generation or so ago.
The dike holds the silt back from
the fields.


ORLANDO After the 2005
record-setting hurricane season,
many Florida homeowners are still
working on getting life back to nor-
mal. With forecasters predicting
nine hurricanes of which five are
in categories three or higher, now
is the time to start making prepara-
tions. While residents have
learned to stock up on plenty of
fresh water and food, another
important element to consider is
who to call if your home is dam-
aged. This is where Florida certi-
fied contractors come in.
When it comes to selecting
someone for home repairs it's
important to realize there is a
world of difference between a
"handy man" and a certified con-
tractor. A certified contractor is
any contractor who possesses a
certificate of competency issued
by the Florida Department of Busi-
ness and Professional Regulation
and who is allowed to engage in
business as a contractor in any
jurisdiction in the State.
"A qualified workforce is criti-
cal to Florida's future," said G. W
Harrell, Executive Director Con-
struction Industry Licensing
Board, DBPR. "In times of crisis,
people tend to look to anyone for
help. For that reason, it is especial-
ly important for us to strongly
encourage Florida residents to
always seek out licensed contrac-
tors for home repairs."
To find out if a contractor is


Some say the answer is to
flood the sugar cane fields but
the economic impact of sugar
farming on the state is $560 mil-
lion a year.
Surprisingly, citrus is the
thirstiest crop.
Flood all the farms? Agricul-
ture makes a $6.2 billion impact
on Florida's economy.
South Florida water ebbed
and flowed with the seasons for
eons, building the rich muck soil
that so readily feeds so many. Not
just with beans, peppers, toma-
toes, radishes and sugar, but with
paychecks. A total of 648,000 mil-
lion jobs depend on Florida agri-
culture.
Thirty percent of all the land
in the state is farmed.
Water and land area also
required for recreation fish-
ing, boating, hiking, hunting and
birding. A lot of other people
want this. That makes Florida a
popular place to be.
The development industry
keeps building new communi-
ties and houses. Now with the
Rural Land Stewardship designa-
tion a state-sanctioned develop-
ment concept, Adams Ranch in
St. Lucie County will remain
mostly as it is.
Why? Because many owners
of large rural tracts of land love
and respect its yields and its
beauty. Florida almost lost the
Everglades and these hardy
ranchers, sons of pioneer settlers
aren't going to let "progress"
take away the beauty of the land.
Millions who a generation ago
might have flocked to sales tents
of new developments now want
to see distance uncluttered by
poles, wires and rooflines.
People want to watch a red-
tailed hawk fly. Besides, the
developers have been building
golf courses for generations now,

ly realize that not all change is
progress. Sometimes real
progress means a step to the side
or, even two steps back, not
rushing pell-mell forward.
There's a very practical reason
too, that this is happening. For all
the summer rain and all its
humidity, Florida's water supply
is limited. The underground
aquifers are fed by rain. Granted,
over 50 inches of rain falls on


South Florida each year, but
much of that evaporates in the
heat and is drawn into the intakes
of hundreds of utility companies.
Whether the water is held in a
lake or underground, it is all rain.
No spring-fed underground rivers
feed waterways here.
Computer technology has
made it possible for huge mass-'
es of date to be gathered an ana-
lyzed in ways the Florida pio-
neers and those who came after
could not conceive. As a result,

Thursday, July 27, 2006 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


25 by '25: Building renewable energy resources


All it takes is one stop at the fuel
pump to realize that Americans are
confronting one of their biggest
challenges in decades. Soaring
energy prices are impacting all sec-
tors of our economy, whether you
are a farmer trying to fuel up for
field work, a trucker hauling goods
across the country or an office
worker who commutes to work
everyday.
That's why leaders like Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson are joining forces with
others across the country to
endorse a bold new initiative:
25x'25. The goal: America's farms,
ranches and forests will provide
25% of America's energy needs
from renewable sources by 2025. A
bi-partisan group of Senators and
Representatives in Washington,
D.C. recently introduced 25x'25 as
a national goal for the country and
more and more people are endors-
ing this vision every day.
"We believe the time has come
for concerned citizens to work col-
lectively and bring this vision to
life," explains Bronson. "We are
convinced that America's farms,
ranches and forests can become
suppliers for a new generation of
fuels and energy feedstocks. At the


same time, we'll contribute to a
cleaner environment and enhance
rural economic development."
Diverse sources
available
Although widespread public
awareness of the 25x'25 initiative
is relatively recent, it's been gain-
ing momentum over the last two
years. In the fall of 2004, a group of
agricultural leaders joined forces
to discuss how they could proac-
tively address the growing chal-
lenges associated with energy
prices. "We anticipated that this
was going to continue to be a huge
issue," said 25x'25 co-chair J. Read
Smith. "But at that time, none of us
would have predicted the hurri-
canes in 2005, the supply disrup-
tions, and some of the dramatic
price swings and economic
impacts we are seeing now."
After extensive dialogue with a
wide range of stakeholders and
energy advocates this steering com-
mittee became convinced that agri-
culture and forestry can play a key
role in helping the nation move
toward energy independence. "We
looked at the energy potential from
a wide range of sources: wind,
solar, methane, ethanol, biodiesel,"


added Bill Richards, who also
serves as co-chair.
Since the adoption of a resolu-
tion by the National Association of
State Departments of Agriculture
endorsing the 25x'25 goal a year
ago, Bronson has been one of the
nation's most ardent supporters of
the concept.
New technologies emerging
"The technologies that could
turn this vision to reality are rapidly
emerging and providing new,
more efficient solutions," added
Mr. Bronson. "In the past decade,
there have been great strides in bio-
fuel technology and manufacturing
facilities, substantially improving
the efficiency of this fuel source.
Florida will be the site of great
advances in the development of
fuel and energy alternatives, which
is why we are pushing our 'Farm to
Fuel' initiative so aggressively."
"Imagine the impact that could
be made if every farm, ranch and
forestry operation in our vast
nation were contributing energy in
one form or another," suggested
Mr. Bronson. "And imagine the
economic impact that could result.
Landowners who produce crops,
livestock or forestry products,
would have a second crop to sell -
energy. Jobs would be created in


rural America through the process-
ing of agricultural products and the
maintenance of equipment for
producing electric power. These
increased domestic energy sup-
plies would help reduce the price
Americans pay to drive their cars
and cool their homes."
Momentum grows
The 25x'25 Work Group has
dramatically expanded in scope
and size since its inception and
momentum continues to build for
making this a national goal and
create alliances in at least 20 states.
As we went to press, the goal has
been endorsed by Florida Gov. Jeb
Bush, along with the governors of
Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota,
Montana, Nebraska, New York,
Pennsylvania and Wisconsin; state
legislatures in Colorado, Nebraska,
and Vermont; and over 200 organi-
zations and businesses from
around the country.
"We hope other individuals and
organizations will join us in crafting
this new energy paradigm," added
Bronson. "Strong partnerships will
drive the 25x'25 vision, and the
work has just begun on that front."

Unclaimed property auction helps Florida schools


TALLAHASSEE Nearly 300
people attended the state's
unclaimed property auction Satur-
day, July 15, in Jacksonville and
raised more than $616,000 for Flori-
da's public school children. Tom
Gallagher, Florida's chief financial
officer, said he was especially
pleased that most of those who
attended were "first timers."
"That means more people are
learning about the unclaimed
property program," Gallagher said.
"We set a new record last fiscal


year by returning more than $100
million worth of cash and property
to owners and heirs from nearly
227,000 accounts, and we intend to
build on that success."
More than 488 lots some
32,000 items -were sold at the day-
long auction, held at the Embassy
Suites Hotel. A men's 2.35-carat
diamond ring drew the highest bid
at $14,000. A signed Babe Ruth
photograph went for $3,000.
The auction items were turned
over to the state from abandoned


safe deposit boxes. The Depart-
ment of Financial Services, which
Mr. Gallagher oversees, currently
holds unclaimed property
accounts valued at more than $1
billion and has transferred more
than $1.5 billion to the state's
school trust fund.
In addition to money and securi-
ties, unclaimed property includes
tangible property such as watches,
jewelry, coins, currency, stamps,
historical items and other miscella-
neous articles.


Another auction will be held
Aug. 25-26 in Tampa.
Claiming money or property
turned over to the state is free, and
at any time owners or their heirs
can claim the money the items
earn at auction. The department
also has a website, www.FLtrea-
surehunt.org, where owners or
heirs can regularly check to see if
the state is holding unclaimed
property for them. They can also
check by calling 1-88-VALUABLE.

The Ashley gang was linked to the lake area


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 story comes
from an interview with Lola
Upthegrove Williams, younger
sister of Laura Upthegrove.
Laura Upthegrove was outlaw
John Ashley's "sweetheart."
The Ashley Gang was a group
of outlaws who rampaged over
South Florida in the years before
and after World War I, robbing
banks and killing those who got
in their way.
According to accounts from
the time, John Ashley shot a
Seminole Indian, DeSoto Tiger,
in order to steal furs. He was
tried and sentenced to death,
but escaped (with the help of
the local sheriff, who always had
a soft spot for him). After that, a
wanted man, he teamed up with
his nephew, Hanford Mobley,
and two other men and robbed
and killed up and down the
lower east coast of Florida.
In 1924, Ashley and his gang
were shot and killed at a road-
block set up by Sheriff Meritt of
St. Lucie County) while trying to
escape the state.
John Ashley was from the
Lake Okeechobee area original-
ly, but he had a little known tie to
Okeechobee.
Lola Upthegrove Williams, in
an interview with Twila Valen-
tine on August 21, 1988, told the
story of her sister, Laura and
John Ashley.
And she told a different story:
"My older sister, Laura, she's
the one that went down in histo-
ry with John Ashley. You know
the story they published about
that and it was all wrong. She
was a good woman and he was


special to INI/www.geocities.women Denina the men
John Ashley and Laura Upthegrove were sweethearts all the
while the gang was robbing banks.

ous Ashley Gang shows the

Queen of the Everglades."
a good man.
"He and my sister never got
married. That was because she
was already married. Her hus-
band left her but she was still
married to him, so she and John
were just sweethearts. Now, that
was something you just didn't
do much of back then. Nowa-
days, they live together and not


be married and no one thinks
anything of it.
"He killed the first time in self
defense. He would come to our
house in the night time and no
dog would ever bark at him.
When he came, every kid would
be up in his lap before he was
there for 30 minutes. Poppa
always said if a dog liked a man
and a kid liked him, he would be
all right and that's the kind of
man John Ashley was. He was a
good man.
"As it really went, John Ashley
was a young man and he was
with his Indian (the son of a
chief). They was his friends and
they were in this boat and it was
full of hides, some kind of hides.
He was in the back and he saw
in the water the shadow of this
Indian and he was coming up
with a knife from the back. John
turned with his gun and shot
him. John was just a kid and he
got scared. (This was in 1911
and John was 18 years old.) He
parked the boat somewhere that
the other Indians had parked
their boats and he ran.
"They went to hunting him.
That man killed that Indian in
self defense. There's a lot of men
in Rairford Prison who are there
and didn't do what the law
decided they did and there's a lot

of people walking around on the
street who's done a lot worse.
"Laura was good to every-
body. She had lots of friends.
She always had money. She had
a nice home in Palm Beach. She
was just good-hearted. She
always had a house full of peo-
ple. Anybody could go there and
stay.
"She wasn't beautiful, but her
actions and her personality was
real good. That's what she got
by with. She loved people. Now,
she was a good dresser. She kept
her hair fixed good and herself
fixed good and she always
helped people. She never run
anybody off.
"She killed herself in 1927.
She was born around 1900, so
she weren't very old. That was
the fourth time. She tried to kill
herself three times. She was in
Jail in Okeechobee when they
didn't have a jail and she was
shut up in that room. (According
to Tommy Markham she was
arrested by Pogy Bill Collins.) I
think her driving and drinking
was the problem. She'd drink
bad and she'd drive when she
was drinking. She loved her
liquor. One time she tried to kill
herself by drinking iodine. It
made her sick, but it didn't kill
her. It did leave a mark on the
outside of her neck that you
could see where she had drank
it.
"The paper said she drank
Lysol when she finally did kill
herself, but I'm not sure of that.
It might have been mosquito
dope or both. She died in Canal
Point where we had lived and
she's buried with the family at
Port Mayaca. That's our grave-
yard."
(According to an account
written by Betsy Perdichizzi that
appeared in the Marco Island


Times in 2005, Laura was
depressed because she was
mourning John's death. Accord-
ing to another account, she was
angry that John Ashley was leav-
ing her in Florida and she had
turned him in to Sheriff Meritt,
then regretted it.)
Mrs. Valentine's notes indi-
cate that she looked through the
cemetery at Port Mayaca for sev-
eral hours looking for Laura's
grave without finding it. She
offers two possibilities. The
graveyard at Port Mayaca did not
exist before the mass burial fol-
lowing the 1928 hurricane,
which would mean that Laura is
buried somewhere else. Another

possibility is that she had been so
notorious during her lifetime and
then compounded that by taking
her own life, and was denied a
"Christian" burial. If so, there's a
possibility she is buried in an
unmarked grave somewhere in
the comer of the cemetery. Mrs.
Valentine notes that there are
several such graves there scat-
tered in the corners with just
small stones marking them.
There is nothing written on the
markers to give nay inkling of just
who is buried there.
