Arrest in Cane Field vandalism


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON With the
occurrences of vandalism that
have been happening on Cane
Field, Clewiston High School and
Hendry County School Board are
working in tandem to come up
with a solution.
After a thorough investigation
of the crime, Investigator Max
VanD'Huynslager of the Clewiston
Police Department made an
arrest.


Slade Sloan, 18, was arrested
Aug. 3, in connection with the van-
dalism case. Sloan reportedly con-
fessed to being involved and was
forthcoming with information on
others involved.
More arrests are expected.
In the meantime, several steps
are being taken to stop vandalism
from happening at the property
again.
The school does not feel that
the property should be locked up.
Too many people use Cane Field
to work out and run the track.


These people use the facility
properly and do not wreak havoc
upon it, school officials said. So
officials decided that the field will
not be locked up simply because
of a few people.
"We are appreciative of the
people who do use the facility in
the proper manner, and we would
love to keep it open to help them,"
said Coach LarryAntonacci.
A sign has been posted already
that states a few things that are not
allowed inside Cane Field, such as
skateboarding, loitering, animals,


and playing on the field.
The Clewiston Middle School
has a deputy on campus that will
periodically check the field. Also,
the Clewiston Police Department
will have someone that will check
the field during after-school hours.
Security cameras will also be
placed in different positions
around the field. This will help
watch the field in between officer
rounds.
Clewiston High School is
doing everything in their power
to keep people from vandalizing


the facility further.
"We would also like to have
people call us if they do hear or
see anything," said Coach
Antonacci. You can call the school
at (863) 983-1520 and ask for
Larry Antonacci, athletic director,
or Robert Egley, principal.
The school members will be
repainting the stadium, and
invite the community to come
join them. Cane Field is almost
the hub of the city and is very
important to all football fans in
Clewiston.


Students go



back to school


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON It may have
seemed an endless summer to
some parents, while most kids
are just beginning to have fun in
their two-month summer vaca- -
tion period, but school has start-
ed back up.
It's been a rough school year
for students in Clewiston, who
have gone through a little bit of a
rebuilding effort in the aftermath
of Hurricane Wilma.
For some students in Central
Elementary, that meant doing
afternoon school sessions while
their school was going through/
intensive repairs.
\ This school year started Mon-
day, Aug. 7, and teachers and
administrators have a curricu-
-....lm uf or f : ",", ;,,,,-,j ,,-,,-,
materials that will help the stu-
dents achieve and score higher
in thisyear FCAT.
Based on last years FCAT
scores, reading continues to be
the major challenge for teachers
and students. Reading will be
the focus of the majority of staff


development for teachers
through out the year.
According to Superintendent
of Hendry County Schools,
Thomas Conner, "All students
will be challenged to grow."
Recently, the Federal Govern-
ment reauthorized the Elemen-
tary and Secondary Education
Act this past year. The Act has
been named the "No Child Left
behind Act."
This act represents new chal-
lenges and opportunities for
school improvement. The most
difficult task for the teachers and
administrators is to ensure that
all children receive a quality edu-
cation.
"Each and every school here
in Clewiston from elementary
through high school has been
planning for-the upcoming
year," said Mr. Conner "I'm
being optimistic that the quality
of instruction and student
achievement will continue to
move forward. The schools are
prepared to provide a quality
education for all students," he
added.


Why boil water



notices are



needed


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Recently
the City of Clewiston was under
a boil water alert, due to a loss
of power at the plant. Because
they do not understand what a
boil water alert is, and what
causes it, some residents may
disregard the notices. I
City officials, though, urge all
residents to take notices seri-
ously.
According to Utilities Direc-
tor Kevin McCarthy, the reason
for last month's boil water alert
was due to U.S. Sugar losing
power at the mill plant, which
caused critical generators to

fail.
The resulting effect saw the
water pressure drop drastically,
to below 20 pounds of pressure
per square inch (PSI). The law
requires a boil water notice to
take effect if the water pressure
at a treatment plant drops
below 20 PSI.
The process necessary to lift
the boil water notice takes a
minimum of two days while
plant supervisors work to eval-
uate the water.
The first step is to obtain ten
water samples from different
areas of the city and send them
to a lab to be tested for positive

How are gasoline prices calculated?


Gasoline is a classic supply
and demand commodity. Higher
usage normally translates into
somewhat lower supply and
higher demand ultimately lead-
ing to higher prices. This is espe-
cially true in the summer
months.
Prices vary across Florida
cities as they do nationally
across regions. Retail prices are
determined by a number of fac-
tors including transportation
costs, location (urban, rural),
average volume pumped, and
competitive mix (the concentra-
tion of major oil companies and
the presence of independent
marketers).
According to the Energy
Information Administration
(EIA), an arm of the U.S. Depart-
ment of Energy, the price paid by
consumers can be traced to four
major components. Below are
those components and their
approximate percentages in cal-
culating the cost of a gallon of
gasoline:


Crude Oil
49 percent;
FederalState/Local Taxes
26 percent;
Refining
15 percent;
Marketing/Distribution/Profits
10 percent
The price of crude oil is easily
the most significant factor in
determining gasoline prices.
Crude oil is a publicly traded
commodity that is susceptible to
market fluctuations. The U.S.
holds about two percent of the
world's proven oil reserves,
while we import 50 percent of
the oil that Americans consume.
The major U.S. ports for
crude oil imports are New York,
the Gulf Coast and the West
Coast.
.Among the reasons offered
for the crude price spike was the
uncertainty in Iraq, and an oil
workers' strike in Venezuela.
The Venezuela strike was settled
and production resumed, further


assisting the crude price drop.

Federal/State/
Local Taxes
Federal excise taxes are 18.4
cents per gallon. The State of
Florida also levies 14.1 cents per
gallon in Motor Fuel Taxes. Local
governments levy anywhere
from 9.6 cents per gallon in
Franklin and Okaloosa Counties
to 17.5 cents in several counties,
creating a range of 42.1 cents in
total fuel taxes and inspection
fees to 52.29 cents.
Find fuel taxes in your county:
http://www.fpma.org/taxes_200
2_MotorFuelTaxInfo.pdf

Refining
Crude oil is not a usable
petroleum product. Once crude
reaches the United States, or is
pumped from a domestic oil
field, it is unloaded at refineries
where it is processed into prod-
ucts such as gasoline, diesel fuel,


and heating oil. While the U.S.
has the largest refining capacity
in the world, Florida does not
have a refinery, resulting in high-
er distribution costs.
Marketing and Distribution
Costs and Profits
This component includes the
cost of transporting, storing and
distributing gasoline from
refineries to gas stations. Most of
the gasoline in the U.S. is trans-
ported from refineries to whole-
sale terminals through pipelines.
Since Florida has no significant
pipelines, most gasoline is
barged in from the Gulf Coast.
The cost of bringing fuel into
Florida is higher due to the
absence of both refineries and
pipelines.
Retailers have indicated their
profits typically range some-
where between five and 10 cents
per gallon.

Economic Development. Since
taking office in 1999, Governor
Bush has strived to put rural
Florida on a more competitive
footing with the rest of the state.
Among many rural-based initia-
tives, the Governor created the
Rural Areas of Critical Economic
Concern which provides rural
areas with greater access to the
state's economic and tourism
development incentive pro-
grams. To date, the Governor
has designated three such areas -
including the one impacted by
today's announcement.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

sored by the EDC every year.

ored during the annual meeting

Do you know where your patience is?


We have heard that patience is
a virtue. Some of us were not
born with it, just like we were not
born organized, but we can devel-
op the habits that keep us from
being impatient.
Just this morning I had to fax a
twelve page document. I have an
old fax machine and it takes a
while for the pages to send. As I
sat in the chair I thought of every-
thing that I should've, could've,
would've done if only. Well I
decided to just sit there quietly
and let the machine do its thing
while I pondered on the word
patience.
As sidetracked people; we
want, what we want, and we
want it now. We expect to be
organized by osmosis, lose
weight by eating anything we
want and get fit by sitting on our
fannys. We have lost the skill of
being patient. It is our all or noth-
ing perfectionist attitude that sab-
otages us once again. We are so
wrapped up in wanting to see the
results immediately that we burn


The

Cilley


ourselves out before we ever real-
ly get started. How sad for us. We
don't even give new habits a
chance, before we toss them out
with the bath water.
Every Tuesday night we bowl
in a league. We have been bowl-
ing for several years. As I was
bowling tonight, I realized that I
too am as impatient as all of you! I
just expected my bowling score
to get better without doing any-
thing to help myself. Robert has
been telling me to slow down for
several months. I have a tendency
to get in a hurry and fling the ball
down the alley without thinking


too much about what I am doing.
About three weeks ago I started
looking at my approach just like a
basketball player would shoot
free throws.
Have you ever watched a free
throw shooter go through his or
her routines before shooting the
ball? Every coach will tell you that
going through the rituals the
same way every time you shoot
will help you to consistently make
your free throws. I started to do
this. I would pick the ball up with
both hands and then hold it in
front of me and take three deep
breaths and then hold the forth
breath and look right where I
want the ball to go and then fol-
low through with my arm. Doing
the same thing each time I throw
the ball.
I have found that when I am
patient with myself and I relax
and breathe that I do better! Imag-
ine that. Practicing my routines
makes me feel better about what I
am doing. I am still not a great
bowler but I consistently bowl my


average. For that 1 am proud. It
doesn't have to be a perfect game
or a high scoring one to have fun
with my friends.
We have to be patient with our
new habits so that they will
become routines. Habits take
time to establish. It doesn't hap-
pen just because we want them
to or because we have them writ-
ten down; we actually have to go
through the motions of our rou-
tines to help our brains establish
the memory that will make them
automatic. Please be patient with
yourself and the whole FLYing
process. We promise that if you
will be patient then you will begin
to reap the benefits of FLYing with
routines.

your CHAOS; check out her web-
site and join her free mentoring
group at www.FlyLady.net or her

University professor receives


award for study on water flow


GAINESVILLE If water is
the land's lifeblood, you can
think of Kenneth Campbell as a
first class agricultural cardiolo-
gist.
The University of Florida pro-
fessor has been recognized by
the American Society of Agricul-
tural and Biological Engineers
(ASABE) for his creation of
sophisticated computer models
that give an unprecedented view
of the bustling dynamics under-
lying the earth's waterways. His
work reveals the ebb and flow of
essential nutrients and pollu-
tants through waterways which
often dwarf our own circulatory
systems in terms of complexity.
"These are systems so big
and complicated that trying to
figure out what's going on used
to be mostly about guesswork,"
said Greg Kiker, a UF professor
and former student of Professor
Campbell's. "Ken's work puts all
the data together, and really
gives this kind of research
teeth."
The Hancor Soil and Water
Engineering Award was present-
ed to Prof. Campbell at the
ASABE Annual International
Meeting July 12. The award, first
given in 1966, is recognized as
one of the group's most presti-
gious recognition of engineer-
ing achievement. Prof. Campbell
was among eleven nominees
from such institutions as McGill
University in Montreal, the
USDA, and Purdue University in
Lafayette, Ind.
According to the ASABE, Prof.
Campbell was chosen in large
part for his two-decade-long
endeavor to model phospho-
rous levels in South Florida. In
the early 80's it was recognized
that excess phosphorous from
runoff was a major factor
behind damaging algal blooms
that were clogging the area's
water systems. Prof. Campbell's
work provides a clear illustration
of this effect, and helped to
develop regulations to rein in the
damaging effects.
Prof. Campbell's interest was


"These are systems so big and complicated that
trying to figure out what's going on used to be
mostly about guesswork."
Greg Kiker,
UF professor and former student of Professor Campbell's


Special to INI/University of Florida
Professor Kenneth Campbell
of the University of Florida
has developed a computer
model, such as those
referred to in INI's Watershed
Series, which predicts runoff
from farms and ranches.
seeded at an early age by his
father, a farmer in Iowa. To
make ends meet, he took a side
job as a water management spe-
cialist for the Natural Resources
Conservation Service (then
called the Soil Conservation Ser-
vice) and would occasionally
bring Kenneth along on assign-
ments. From those simple agrar-
ian roots, Prof. Campbell was
further influenced by a backdrop
of evolving environmental
awareness of the 60's as he was
completing his education.
"People were just starting to
become aware that we can have
significant effects on our envi-
ronment-especially our water


systems," Prof. Campbell said.
In 2000, Prof. Campbell
began a year's sabbatical in
South Africa at the University of
Natal. There, he helped develop
a new computer model using
the object-oriented computer
language called Java to help
land managers in the near-
desert region make the best use
of their resources. The system
proved to be so adaptable that
he brought it back to UF, where
he uses it to predict runoff from
ranches and farms.
However, the model isn't the
only connection Prof. Campbell
still holds with South Africa.
Since his time there, Prof. Camp-
bell has helped four students
from the region come to UF to
pursue academic degrees.
S"His influence on others and
his willingness to help other
people learn is something that
really makes him stand out," Mr.
Kiker said. "Probably half of the
people in the state of Florida
working in this .field have been
taught by him, and I guarantee
you that they're better for the
experience."
Although recently named
interim chair of the Agricultural
and Biological Engineering
department, he is now looking
forward to retirement in the next
few years. Nonetheless, that
doesn't mean he'll lose his life-
long interest.
"We live in a fascinating time
for this type of research, both
technologically and socially," he
said. "I'll be looking forward to
watching what comes next."

The zebra longwing is Florida's state butterfly. These butterflies not only drink nectar but
also feed on pollen. They live longer than most butterflies (five to six months) because
of a specialized external digestion process.


Education Commissioner announces


results of 2006 school grades appeals


TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner John L. Winn today
announced that Florida school dis-
tricts are improving at quality data
management which is leading to a
decline in the number of school
grade appeals. Each year, school
districts may submit appeals to the
Department of Education (DOE)
for school grades under Governor
Jeb Bush's A+ Plan for Education
and Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP) designations required by the
federal No Child Left Behind
(NCLB) Act. This year, districts sub-
mitted appeals on behalf of 33
schools, including 14 school grade
appeals, 11 AYP appeals and eight
for both school grades and AYP,
down from 49 appeals last year and
68 appeals the previous year.
"I applaud the school districts


for their improved data manage-
ment," said Commissioner
Winn. "Transparency and under-
standability are critical to the suc-
cess of our accountability sys-
tem. By successfully managing
data and minimizing errors, we
can better serve the students and
families of Florida."
This year 19 appeals were
accepted, including six school
grade appeals and eight AYP
appeals. In addition, five for both
school grades and AYP appeals
were accepted. The appeals result-
ed in improving the grade for a
number of schools with two
schools now earning a "B", seven
schools now earning a "C" and two
schools earning a "D". Nine
appeals, resulted in a change to a
school's AYP designation from No


or Provisional to Yes. Under NCLB,
Florida now has 918 schools meet-
ing the 39 AYP criteria. Some
schools that received a change in
their school grade also experienced
a change in their AYP status.
In order to formally appeal a
school grade or AYP designation,
districts were required to submit an
explanation and supporting data
on behalf of the school to the DOE.
Formal appeals state the schools'
basis for appeal and must be
accompanied by appropriate docu-
mentation. School districts were
required to submit their school
grade appeals by July 13, 2006.
Palm Beach County School,
Glades Central appealed their
grade of D and were denied for any
change of the grade.


As they get older, Fido or Fluffy
may need chemo.
As animals reach their twilight
years, they encounter the
inevitable health problems that
come with old age, including can-
cer. According to the American
Veterinary Medical Association
(AVMA), cancer accounts for
almost half of the deaths in pets
over 10 years of age.
"Animals are getting older
because veterinarians and veteri-
nary medicine are advancing.
Older animals are at a much high-
er risk for developing cancer," says
Zach Wright, a veterinarian at the
College of Veterinary Medicine
and Biomedical Sciences at Texas
A&M University.
Older animals are prone to sev-
eral types of cancer, the symptoms
of which may go unnoticed, but a
growth on a pet can be a tell-tale
sign of a bigger problem. If a lump
on a pet does raise concern, ani-
mal experts have both good news
and bad news for pet owners.
The good news is that many of
these tumors are benign.
Cysts, which contain benign
material, are often found on pets,
especially older animals.
"They are the dog and cat
equivalent of acne, but they don't
necessarily go away," says veteri-
narian Wright.
Dogs are particularly suscepti-
ble to fatty tumors, while cats can
get basal cell tumors of the skin,
both of which are usually harm-
less if addressed early.
Insect or snake bites can also
cause swelling that has the appear-
ance of a tumor.
For cases such as these, there is
no need to rush into the veterinary
clinic. Instead, Veteranarian
Wright recommends that pet own-
ers take note of raised areas and
see if they dramatically change in
size over the course of a few days
to weeks.
Here's the bad news: you can't
always tell a bump is harmless just
by looking.
Once the cancer reaches an
advanced stage, an animal may act
lethargic, have difficulty swallow-
ing or breathing, change its eating
habits, begin vomiting or have diar-
rhea. Until this point, the symp-
toms of a cancerous mass may be
no different from a benign mass.
Because malignant and benign
tumors can share the same symp-
toms, it takes professional help to
decide whether or not a growth is a
pet threat.
"The reality is you don't know
until a veterinarian evaluates it," he
says.
Because of this, he says that any
bumps on a pet should be treated
with respect when the animal is in
or near the geriatric stage. The
beginning of this stage depends on
breed and species, but Wright says
a good standard is age eight and
older for dogs and 10 and older for
cats.
According to the American Vet-
erinary Medical Association, most
growths require a biopsy to con-
firm if the mass is cancerous, and


for concerned owners, this is not
something to put off.
"The biggest problem we have
is that owners come to us too late,"
says Vet. Wright.
"In most instances, the treat-
ment of choice is to remove it, and
it is a lot easier to remove a grape
off of a dog than a softball."
Procrastination can be the
biggest threat to a pet with a malig-


nant mass, and he says it ties avet-
erinarian's hands when trying to
give the pet care.
"It's better to prove it's
benign than assume it's benign,"
he says, "and good news, as a
whole, is always better than bad
news."

Picayune Strand Restoration


gets federal authorization


When people first dug canals
and paved roads through
Picayune Strand to build South-
ern Golden Gates Estates, there
was little public awareness
about the national environmen-
tal importance of Florida's Ever-
glades.
More than 40 years later,
earth moving equipment is
again altering this 55,000-acre
swath of real estate in western
Collier County, but with the
intent of restoring its natural
water flows and lush native habi-
tat.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District stepped up the
Picayune Strand Restoration
project in 2004 under the state's
Acceler8 Everglades restoration
initiative. The initiative is fast
tracking the design and con-
struction of many projects criti-
cal to ecosystem recovery ahead
of guarantees of partnership fed-
eral funding. In addition, the
state and the District have also
taken the lead on acquiring the
land needed to construct these
projects.
Picayune Strand Restoration
received crucial federal endorse-


ment in July when the U.S. Sen-
ate passed the Water Resources
Development Act. The act, and
its counterpart passed by the
House in 2005, includes con-
struction authorization for the
Picayune Strand Restoration Pro-
ject. A compromise version of
the House and Senate bills will
be crafted by a joint congres-
sional committee.
"Restoring these wetlands
will reestablish historic flow
ways and reduce point source
discharges to freshwater in the
delicate coastal estuaries of
10,000 Islands," said Alice Carl-
son, District Governing Board
member and chair of the Big
Cypress Basin Governing Board.
"This will fill in the missing piece
of the puzzle in restoring ecolog-
ical connectivity between pub-
licly held lands in the region."
In Picayune Strand, water
managers will restore the natural
flow of surface water by plug-
ging four canals; the Prairie
Canal, Merritt Canal, Faka-Union
Canal and Miller Canal, said Chip
Eitel, District Picayune Strand
Project Manager. Pump stations
are also being installed on three


of the canals to keep the water
moving.
Until that part of the project
can begin, workers are making
way for the water by demolish-
ing homes, chicken coops,
sheds and other debris left
behind in old Southern Golden
Gates Estates. Plans also call for
removing 227 miles of roads.
The Picayune Strand Restora-
tion Project is part of the 50-50
federal-state Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan, or
CERP. Florida has forged ahead
to implement the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Plan
with an investment of $1.7 bil-
lion toward Acceler8 the state's
initiative to fast track eight key
Everglades restoration projects -
and a commitment for an addi-
tional $3.2 billion through the
end of the decade to clean up
and restore the famed River of
Grass.

ject and CERP, visit www.ever-

Cabinet vote brings much-needed

insurance relief to Floridians


TALLAHASSEE Tom Gal-
lagher, Florida's chief financial
officer, applauded the decision
by the Governor and Cabinet to
approve reactivating the Com-
mercial Joint Underwriting Asso-
ciation (JUA). The JUA will pro-
vide property insurance coverage
to Florida's business owners
who have been unable to secure
it from private companies. Gal-
lagher recommended the JUA as
a short-term solution last week in
a letter to Governor Bush.
"Eight storms inflicting $38
billion in insured losses have cre-
ated a crisis in Florida's property
insurance market, and our state's
homeowners and business own-
ers are being held hostage as a
result," said Mr. Gallagher. "The
solution I recommended and we
approved will help provide basic
coverage to Florida employers
who employ thousands of hard-
working citizens and serve as the
backbone of our economy.
There are some real opportuni-
ties to provide further relief for
Floridians, and fighting for
homeowners remains my num-
ber one priority."
Since the hurricanes of 2004,
Mr. Gallagher has made several


recommendations to the Cabinet
and Legislature which have pro-
vided relief to Florida's home-
owners, including the elimina-
tion of the double-deductible,
the creation of a simplified insur-
ance policy checklist, and the
approval of $715 million dollars
in insurance rate-relief to Floridi-
ans which eliminated a 20 per-
cent surcharge on homeowners
insurance bills this summer.
Mr. Gallagher, who serves on
the Cabinet, also recommended
that a working group comprised
of representatives from the Gov-
ernor's Office, Florida Senate
and House of Representatives,
Department of Financial Ser-
vices, State Board of Administra-
tion and the Office of Insurance
Regulation explore lowering the
threshold of the Florida Hurri-
cane Catastrophe (CAT) Fund
from $5.2 billion to $3 billion.
The Catastrophe Fund provides
reinsurance to insurance compa-
nies.
Mr. Gallagher said the Cata-
strophe Fund has proven to be a
critical tool to Florida's economy
and cited in the Cabinet meeting
that the fund saves homeowners
living in a $150,000 home in


Miami as much as $3,100 annual-
ly. He said that for homeowners
in Hillsborough or Escambia
County, the savings are as much
as $500 a year.
Mr. Gallagher said these sav-
ings are possible because insur-
ance companies pay 70 cents for
every $1 of reinsurance in the
worldwide market but pay less
than a dime for that same cover-
age through our Catastrophe
Fund. In addition, Mr. Gallagher
said that when Florida insurers
purchase reinsurance on the
worldwide market, the money is
gone even when no storms
come. When those same insur-
ers buy it through the Catastro-
phe Fund, that money stays in
Florida and builds to pay future
storm claims.
Mr. Gallagher said if a consen-
sus is reached by the working
group making changes to the
CAT fund, then he recommends
that the governor call for a spe-
cial session.
"The sooner we put addition-
al solutions in place, the sooner
we will be able to stabilize insur-
ance rates and provide desper-
ately needed coverage to home-
owners," Mr. Gallagher said.

Special to INI/UF/IFAS
Property owners can help keep wild turkey populations on their property with a little help
from the University of Florida.


Planting certain trees, such as cherry and black gum, can help attract deer to your land.


IFAS offers course on caring for deer, turkey


GAINESVILLE, Fla.-- Turkeys
on your property probably won't
drown by looking skyward in a
downpour, but keep an eye on
the rain gauge or you might end
up with wet hen syndrome. To get
deer to hang around, try main-
taining their favorite trees: hard-
woods like cherry and black gum.
Maintaining healthy and
ample turkey and deer popula-
tions, whether for hunting or just
wildlife appreciation, can be a
tricky business. But landowners,
ranchers and wildlife managers


can learn tips and tricks from the
experts Aug. 18 at the first Florida
Deer and Turkey Management
Shortcourse.
Organized by the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences, the course
will take place in the Turner Cen-
ter Exhibit Hall in Arcadia, Fla.,
and will present the latest in sci-
entific advice-in layman's
terms-from experts in acade-
ria, the hunting industry and nat-
ural resource agencies.-
"There are definitely a number


of steps you can take to improve
the health and number of turkey
and deer-many being just good
common sense," said Jim Selph,
the DeSoto County Livestock Agri-
cultural Extension Director and
one of the meeting's coordinators.
"But even simple steps can go a
long way towards making life bet-
ter for both you and the animals."
For example, attendees will
learn how to plant edible forage
in feed plots distributed through-
out their land. A common mis-
take, Selph said, is to plant a sin-


gle plot in the center of the land.
This forces the animals to congre-
gate in a central, often smaller
location-not only making com-
petition for that food fiercer, but
also increasing the chances of an
attack from a predator.
"One thing people usually
don't realize is that they also
need the right ratios of open
space and brush or foliage," said
Brian Zielinski, a biologist from
the National Wild Turkey Federa-
tion who will deliver a presenta-
tion dubbed "Turkey Facts." "And


it's not just having enough of one
or the other, the borders
between open and closed spaces
is crucial to a lot of animals'
activities like nesting."
Other topics will include prop-
er harvest management, how to
recognize and identify the ani-
mals, balancing the needs of cat-
tle and game animals, and many
others. The course will run from 8
a.m. until approximately 4:30
p.m. The presenters will give a
tour of a local ranch in the after-
noon to show the real-life imple-


mentation of practices discussed
in the morning. A noon meal of
smoked ribs will be provided.
Registration costs $50 and ends
Aug. 11; however, applicants may
also register late for $75. For more
information, please go to

no signs of chroniC wasting disease
(CWD) after four years of testing
for the deadly disease.
CWD is a contagious neurologi-
cal disease that has been found in
captive and wild herds of mule
deer, white-tailed deer and Rocky
Mountain elk within several mid-
western and western states. The
disease causes degeneration of the
brains of infected animals resulting
in emaciation, abnormal behavior,
loss of bodily functions and death.
No southeastern states, includ-
ing Florida,;have been hit by the
deer disease thus far.
The FWC tested 512 free-rang-
ing deer during the past year and
more than 2,300 deer during the
past four years, with no CWD-posi-

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Micro-irrigate to save water and improve landscape


By Ed Ayen,
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
Special to IN1
This is another in a series of
articles written about the new
area program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods (FYN).
A properly designed micro-
irrigation system will decrease
water loss from evaporation,
wind and runoff. It can also min-
imize disease problems by
applying water to the root zone
of plants instead of the foliage.
Micro-irrigation or low vol-
ume irrigation is recommended
for shrub and flower beds and
potted plants. Usually micro-irri-
gation emitters have a maxi-
mum flow rate of 0.5 gallons per
minute while traditional lawn
sprinkler heads put out three
gallons per minute or more.
If you have an existing irriga-
tion system you can increase
watering efficiency by retro-
fitting a micro-irrigation system;
or you can just connect the sys-
tem to your outdoor spigot. A
stand alone micro-irrigation sys-
tem can provide flexibility to
meet variable water needs of
new, maturing and established
plants.
One of the first common
components you will need if
hooking into public drinking
water system, is a backflow pre-
vention device. This device pro-
tects public health by preventing
water system contamination
and pollution. The backflow pre-
vention device should be


attached between the spigot and
other components of your sys-
tem. If hooking into an existing
irrigation system, start with an
isolation valve. The next compo-
nent needed for both systems is
a filter which removes particles
from water to minimize clogging
of the emitters. After the filter, it
is a good idea to install a pres-
sure-regulation device which
helps prevent rupturing of plas-
tic tubing and connections. A
system hooked onto your hose
spigot will probably need an irri-
gation controller to control the
duration and frequency of the
zone operation. If you are hook-
ing into an existing irrigation sys-
tem it is best to have the micro-
irrigation section as a stand
alone zone to control it separate
from your lawn system.
If you have an up to date digi-
tal controller on your irrigation
system I recommend adding a
soil moisture sensor that will
shut off the irrigation pump
when soil moisture is adequate.
Another, but less efficient, way
to shut down the system is a rain
sensor device which senses
when adequate rainfall has
occurred.
Polyethylene tubing is com-
monly used for distribution pipe.
Emitter selection depends on
plant arrangement and owner
preference. In-line drip tubing is
recommended for groups of
plants with similar water needs
in a grid pattern or rows. Drip
tubing is easy to install and
water goes into the soil with

least evaporation. Drip emitters
can be used for potted plants or
hanging baskets. Micro-sprays
emitters are used for large
groups of plants with similar
water needs and they are avail-
able in a large variety of spray
patterns. Their main disadvan-
tage is that water is sprayed into
the air and is subject to some
wind drift and evaporation.
If all of this sounds too com-
plicated come by the Highlands
County Extension Office and I


will give you a booklet on the
subject.
The Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods program is being
implemented through your local
county extension service in
Highlands, Okeechobee and
Glades County and is partially
funded from Clean Water Act
Section 319 funding from the
U.S. EPA through the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection.

Harley Holmes lived in Fort Drum Florida's candidates in
1 1. j


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 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."
We will be dipping back into
some of these stories from time to
time as we are now.
"Life in the home of Harley
Holmes of Ft. Drum was a mix-
ture of hard work shared by many
hands and participation in a large
extended family.
"Mr. Holmes was a member of
one of the pioneer families of Ft.
Drum and he operated a general
merchandise store in the commu-
nity at the turn of the century.
"His father, Henry Allen
Holmes, arrived at Ft. Drum
around 1878 along with his step-
father, Henry L. Parker. The pair,
along with Joel Swain, a primitive
Baptist preacher, were the origi-
nal settlers of the community.
"Henry Holmes and his wife,
Joanna Morgan, were the parents
of nine children. Following her
death in 1894, he married Carrie
Roberts of Orange County and
they were the parents of five more
children. His oldest son, Harley
was born in 1878 "Harley Holmes
opened and operated a general
store in Ft. Drum during the early
1900s. His daughter, Thelma, 87
years young when Twila wrote
this account in 1989, recalled her
life in Ft. Drum.
"I worked in the store. We did-
n't keep it open all the time. I'd
have to take the key and go out
there and wait on people when
they came. The Indians traded
there a whole lot. They would sell
their hides and we shipped them.
I can't remember where the com-
pany was located.'
"She said they were mainly
coon and gator hides that the Indi-
ans brought into their store. They
would also bring in huckleberries
to sell to the store. She said they
would sell clabber to the Indians.
Thelma recalled the Indians
would,camp across the Ft. Drum
Creek.
,. ,T'lThey'd have .their camp over
there. They'd have a pot of grits-
and they would all eat out of it.
They'd eat turtles and gophers,
too,' she said.
"On a tape of a talk that Thel-
ma's aunt, Addie, a noted histori-
an, gave at Indian Hammock in
1982, she too, recalled some of
those early days just after the turn
of the century and going into her
step-brother's store.
"Now, that was the most fasci-
nating place in the community -
to get to go to the store. One thing
they had that every child looked
forward to was a nice long stick of
stick candy. That old country store
was a real joy to go to. Everybody
come to the store,' she said.
"Thelma said the stick candy
was similar to a candy cane only
straight and somewhat thicker.
They came in all sorts of flavors
like peppermint, lemon and

peanut butter. She said they cost a
penny each.
"Froml907 to 1910, Harley
Holmes was also the postmaster
in Ft. Drum with the postal facility
located in the store. Thelma
recalled sending out and collect-
ing the mail in those days before
the railroad came through the
town.
"J.M. Lee would go over in
horse and wagon to meet the
train and pick up the mail. Some-
times he had to wait a long time.
Then he met the train at night to
send the mail out," she said.
"The family had a garden and
she said when they were building
the railroad, there was a large
group of men working on the
construction crew and they used
to come to her house and buy
vegetables out of the garden.
"We had a big field of cane...
We had a came mill and we made
syrup every year. We had to strip
that cane and they called it Japan-
ese cane. It was the best syrup in
the world, I thought then. But I
don't care for it now," Thelma
said.
"In addition to the store, her
father was in the cattle business.
When the time came for a
roundup on the open prairie, all
the cattlemen would join in. Flori-
da was all open range in those
days and not a fence was in sight
on the prairies. The cattlemen
would range for miles collecting
all the cattle. Then, they would
separate them and each owner
would claim his own cattle.
"When they had a roundup,
they'd all go out together. They'd
take an ox wagon and carry their

rations in the ox wagon. They'd
be out for eight or ten days some-
times. All the men who owned
cattle would go," Thelma
recalled.
She remembered a humorous
incident about Walter Rhymes,
the camp cook who drove the ox
wagon.
"He'd sit up there on the seat
and he'd slump. Grandpa would
say, 'Sit up straight. You're not
supposed to slump on your back-
bone,' she said with a chuckle.
"They'd come in (the store)
and they'd pay me daddy a quar-
ter a dozen for biscuits. And I'd
have to make a lard can lid full of
biscuits. I wasn't very big and I'd
be standing on a little chair that I
had and make the biscuits. They
would carry them for about ten
days. Usually, they carried a cook
along to cook for them. They
would bake biscuits there in a
Dutch oven over the fire. They
also carried sweet potatoes," she
said.
"Addie Emerson recalled that
she went with her mother, Carrie,
to the woods and the camp when
the roundup was on,
"We'd go out to the cow camp
and my mother was as good at
chopping a cabbage palm as any,
man you ever knew. She could
really get one down in a hurry and
have it in the pot boiling in no
time at all. That was the way we
camped. That was camping in the
raw. Of course, we butchered
beef every time they had a
roundup. We had a nice slab of
meat hanging over the fire. They
would cut a palmetto stump and
stick it in the ground and it (the
meat) would drip its fat into those
embers and that is good eating,'
she said.
"Thelma said that she doesn't
recall just where they'd drove the
cattle to in order to sell them. She
said that she does recall that
when they drove them over to the
West Coast, they would lose a lot
of them. She said that a lot of the
time, the mosquitoes would

"Every Fourth of July, they
would have a big picnic. They
would roast a whole beef. Every-

Florida Farm Bureau helps fight hunger


(GAINESVILLE) This year
the Florida Farm Bureau and the
Young Farmers and Ranchers
Leadership Group has
embarked on a campaign to
help fight hunger in the Sun-
shine State.
Harvest For All, a campaign
linking America's Second Har-
vest with Young Farmers and
Ranchers across the country,
has been around since 2003 and
it is with much enthusiasm that
Florida Farm Bureau joins the
program this year. America's
Second Harvest, a food bank
network, is the United State's
largest charitable hunger-relief
organization.


Erin Best, president of the
Marion County Farm Bureau,
said she first heard of this pro-
gram while serving on the Amer-
ican Farm Bureau Young Farmer
and Rancher Leadership Pro-
gram.
"I knew my home state of
Florida would participate, but in
July even I was surprised at the
eagerness with which Florida
Farm Bureau members rallied to
the cause. We set an initial state
goal of two bags of food per
county for a total of 1,500 lbs of
food. But at the State YF&R Con-
ference in July, state and county
YF&R members made pledges
for their respective counties,


which totaled more than 20,000
Ibs," Best said.
So far, YF&R members in
Suwannee, Jefferson, Marion,
Levy, Columbia, Hardee, High-
lands, Hillsborough, Palm Beach
and Volusia counties have set
goals and begun the process to
achieve them.
"I am inspired by the support
the Young Farmers and Ranchers
have shown for this program,"
said Rachel Kudelko, coordina-
tor of the Young Farmer and
Rancher program. "I know they
are committed to making this
program a success for everyone
involved. This is a way for Farm
Bureaus across the state to make


a real difference."

How to help
The Florida Farm Bureau's
inaugural Harvest For All cam-
paign will conclude in October
at the 2006 State Convention
Oct. 11-13 at the Hilton Ocean
Walk Village in Daytona Beach.
Each county Farm Bureau is
being asked to participate by
bringing canned goods, making
a monetary donation or donat-
ing volunteer time at a food
bank.
County Farm Bureaus are
also encouraged to accept dona-
tions from the public at their
offices.

WWJD a question Jesus does not ask himself Church Briefs


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Somewhere, when you look
around, you find those "What
would Jesus do" (WWJD)
bracelets or neck bands. They
serve as reminders to ask the
question when a decision is
about to be made. They come
with variations; "What Would
Jesus Drive?" has set off a debate
and includes those who say He
wouldn't drive at all. The person
who doesn't have to ask that
question about WWJD is Jesus
Himself. He already knows! In
fact, He is the one that sets the
standard for the rest of those
who wear the bracelets or the
neck bands, or book marks or
tee-shirts. The reason, of course,
is that Jesus IS the one, and by
His very being, he doesn't have
to ask about how to act or think
or do. He IS, period.


Long before, God reveals
Himself to Moses on the mount
and Moses asks God, "Suppose I
go to the people of the Israelites
and say to
them 'The God
of your fathers
has sent me to
you' and they ':.
ask me 'What -"
is His name?' -
Then what /
shall I tell
them" God
said to Moses Samuel S.
"I am who I Thomas
am (Exodus
3:13 14)." God is who God is,
and that is sufficient; He doesn't
have to think about what to do,
or say, or how to act.
Later, Saint Paul tells the
Corinthians "(but) by the grace
of God, I am what I am...(1
Corinthians 15:9)" Paul no
longer has to ask what to do, or
what to say, or how to act; it has


become a part of him and he
knows what God would have
him do. The difference is
between being and acting; God
is God, or Paul is Paul, or the
doctor is the doctor, or the
teacher is the teacher, or the
expert is the expert and that's
all and that's enough. I remem-
ber asking about becoming flu-
ent in another language; I knew
words, I was able to make my
way around, I was able to debate
or explain-and win! But was I
"fluent?" One person who had
lived in another language for a
long time said "You work at it
and one day, you are!" Then, I
had to stop and remember that
there were words in my first lan-
guage that I still didn't know, and
there were mistakes in grammar
that I was likely to make, but I
was still regarded as "fluent" and
never questioned it. It was really
a state of being, and not a
process of mastery.

The question that is repre-
sented by those initials, WWJD,
is a recognition that we haven't
yet arrived, we still need to stop
and ask. That's all right, but by
asking and asking, little by little,
one day it can become second
nature, and then acting, or say-
ing or believing becomes being.
That's when we know within
ourselves and others recognize
in us what we are; and it's a
moment of fulfillment, peace,
and calm.
I know people who are ful-
filled by their vocations; you
would mention their name and
someone would say "She's a
teacher" or "He's a mechanic"
or "They're good parents" or
"They're really in love." It is not
having to stop and make a
choice with everything that
comes up, it's having done it
enough that it becomes a part of
our being; questions about what
to do have long since been

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Crikey! That's was a close
'un!" Steve Irwin, the Aussie
known as the Crocodile Hunter,
loves to stare into the yawning
jaws of a large
snake, jump-
ing back out of
harm's way
just as the
creature takes
a snap at him.
such aspira-
tions. I learned
early to keep John
an eye out for Hicks
snakes, espe-
cially hiking around the woods
of Florida. I learned that there
are good snakes and not-so-
good snakes. I try to avoid
snakes, but there are times when
I found that I had to deal with
them. The good snakes I try to
shoo away. The not-so-good
snakes that pose a health hazard
I try to send to eternal glory. I
always try to be careful, and
have never been snake bitten
until this summer.
I couldn't believe it. I was
snake bit! Me! With blood drip-
ping down my leg, I hiked up to
the cabin and shared the news.
As you might imagine, they got
all excited until I assured them
that it was a non-poisonous
snake and proved it by showing
that what had drawn blood was
not fangs but a row of small
teeth.
My experience started when I
went to the ATV to go look for
the girls. Lying across the path
was a four foot black snake. I
found a long stick and moved
her out of the way. She hissed at
me, but I thought little of it. It
was then I made my mistake.
I assumed that she would just
slither off away from me, and I
turned my back to her. I got to
the ATV, and took a step back
when whapP!" I looked down
to see her slither,off and blood
trickle down my ankle. "Stupid
snake!"
It was a lesson learned. You
can't just turn your back on
snakes or ignore them, thinking
that they are of little conse-
quence. They'll slither up behind
you and bite you when you
aren't looking or aren't paying
attention. It's part of their nature,
especially if you are heading
somewhere the\ don't want you
to go.
Let me share with you anoth-
er lesson learned: Satan's a
snake. Take my word for it. Be
on your guard. He's craft and
cunning. He lurks in every dark
corner. He prowls in the dark-
ness. He worms his way into


answered. The years of working
at it are rewarded and we're "flu-
ent" in being ourselves, com-
plete in being what God calls us
to be. By knowing who we are,
what we're called to be, what we
are supposed to be doing in life,
we can count on all of the ques-
tions and decisions falling into
place. It took Paul awhile to get
to the point of being able to say
"I am who I am" and give God
the credit for it; he was a long
way that day from his past or his
road to Damascus experience.
A young medical student told
me once "When I'm in the
emergency room, I don't want to
have to stop and think about
what to do; I just want to act and
do it." He was on the way to
becoming ("becoming" in a true
sense) a doctor. When we be
what we are, we don't need to
stop and ask; that's a great
moment and I believe God bless-
es us in them.


Whenever you can, do avoid getting a snake bite


every life and he strikes without
abandon. No one is immune.
Young, old, rich, poor, it doesn't
matter. You turn your back on
him or ignore him and,
whapP!" You're snake bit.
Be alert. Be very alert. We
never know when he will creep
up and strike next. You can see
where he has slithered causing
unrest in the world, egotism in
our government, and question-
able moral ethics within the
leadership of some of our
schools and churches. Perhaps
the most deadly snake-sign how-
ever, shows itself in the poison of
complacency that has manifest-
ed itself in many Christians.
In many ways, we have
become complacent and have
reached a point where we either
don't see the need to go into
action or can't see what good it
would do if we did. We are living
and doing the best we can in our
own lives, and the Lord knows
we have problems enough of
our own. We may not be happy
with what we see, but for the

WHY RENT WITH

LISTINGS LIKE THESE?


most part we remain calm in the
midst of the violence, sexual
exploits, and questionable
morals and ethics that surround
us.
The truth is that if something
tragic happens, most of us


respond. Look at what hap-
pened immediately after Sep-
tember 11th, or after Hurricane
Wilma visited us last October.
But also look at what's happen-
ing now.
When we become compla-


cent, when we focus on our own
worries, when we turn our
backs on the snake or when we
don't take the snake seriously
enough is when the snake is
most likely to strike. Watch your
step!

Governor Bush breaks ground for EAA reservoir


PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Governor Jeb Bush joined local,
state and federal leaders to break
ground on one of the most
expansive reservoirs in the
world as part of the massive
effort to restore America's Ever-
glades. The EAA Reservoir will
be constructed south of Lake
Okeechobee on a 16,700-acre
parcel in western Palm Beach
County, just west of U.S. 27.
When complete, the above
ground structure will store up to
190,000 acre-feet of water, or 62
billion gallons of water. This is
equivalent to 100,000 Olympic-
sized swimming pools.
When complete, the first com-
ponent of the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area Reservoir will cover 25
square miles and provide 190,000
acre-feet of water storage to bet-
ter manage water released from


Lake Okeechobee and to improve
the timing and quality of water
delivered to the famed River of
Grass. The $400 million reservoir
is the flagship project of the
State's Acceler8 initiative to com-
plete eight critical Everglades
restoration projects ahead of
schedule.
"Florida is keeping its promise
to restore the River of Grass and
protect this national treasure,"
said Governor Bush. "By con-
structing this massive water stor-
age system, we can better control
water releases, restore wildlife
habitat and protect the state's
estuaries."
Engineers will move close to
18 million cubic yards of earth to
construct the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area Reservoir on 16,700
acres of former farmland. Along
with capturing runoff from agri-


cultural areas, the reservoir will
store freshwater releases from
Lake Okeechobee to reduce
harmful discharges to the St.
Lucie and Caloosahatchee estu-
aries. The reservoir will also pro-
vide additional water to hydrate
the Everglades, increase flood
protection and allow water man-
agers to capture and direct phos-
phorus-laden water to construct-
ed wetlands for treatment.
"The magnitude of this project
is awe-inspiring," said South Flori-
da Water Management District
Governing Board Chairman Kevin
McCarty, "yet our commitment to
Everglades restoration is just as
big. The EAA Reservoir is one of
many outstanding projects, and
they are all aimed at bringing
environmental benefits to the
Everglades ecosystem as soon as
possible."


To guide the EAA Reservoir,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District initially construct-
ed two storage areas that togeth-
er held 24 million gallons of
water. These test reservoirs,
called test cells, provided engi-
neers with critical information to
design and build the Everglades
Agricultural Area Reservoir.
Scheduled for completion in
2010, the reservoir will store
approximately 62 billion gallons
of water the equivalent of
more than five million residen-
tial swimming pools.
"Today's groundbreaking of
the Everglades Agricultural Area
Reservoir is the strongest exam-
ple yet of how far and fast we
have traveled from planning to
concrete action in the shared fed-
eral/state Everglades restoration
effort," said White House Council
on Environmental Quality Chair-
man James L. Connaughton.
"This Acceler8 project is an essen-
tial component of the infrastruc-
ture needed to fulfill the commit-


ment by President Bush and Gov-
ernor Bush to provide the water
needed to revive this important
ecosystem."
The EAA Reservoir is the
largest of three major reservoirs
under construction as part of the
State's Acceler8 effort. This proj-
ect is the first phase of a reservoir
system that will store approxi-
mately 360,000 acre-feet of water
on 30,000 acres of State-owned
land between the North New
River Canal and the Miami Canal.
Announced by Governor Jeb
Bush in October 2004, Acceler8 is
stepping up the pace of funding,
design and construction to com-
plete eight Everglades restoration
projects over seven years. At sub-
stantial savings to taxpayers, the
projects will restore 100,000 acres
of wetlands, expand water treat-
ment areas by close to 29,000
acres and provide 428,000 acre-
feet of additional water storage
for Everglades restoration a
decade ahead of schedule. Five of
the eight Acceler8 projects are


already underway. Since February
2006, the State has expanded
three Everglades Agricultural Area
treatment wetlands and launched
construction on the C-43 Caloosa-
hatchee West Storage Reservoir,
the C-44 St. Lucie Canal Reser-
voir/Stormwater Treatment Area
and the Acme Basin B Discharge
Project.
Under the leadership of Gover-
nor Bush, Florida has forged
ahead to implement the $10.5 bil-
lion, State-federal Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan.
Since 2000, Florida has invested
more than $2 billion and commit-
ted an additional $3.2 billion
through the end of the decade to
clean up and restore the famed
River of Grass.

Acceler8, visit www.ever-
gladesnow.org.

Be wary and scratch out poison ivy


By Dan Culbert
Special to INI
Last week an office visitor
asked to see a picture of Poison
Ivy he had been working in
an overgrown area and
thought he'd seen something
familiar. Next he rolled up his
shirt sleeve and showed me a
raging rash. The claim was, "I
never got it before, so I didn't
think it was poison ivy."
Poison Ivy is found in Flori-
da Yards, along fence lines, in
natural areas and, yes, even by
the beach. Everyone needs to
know this native plant is well
established here. And for
many, touching this plant or its
relatives will result in skin rash-
es.
Being able to identify this
poisonous plant is a first step in
avoiding it. It's also necessary
to scratch out this weed from
Florida Yards. I wouldn't sug-
gest you bring in a specimen
for positive ID. Instead, take a
look at the pictures in UF
Extension Agent Pat Grace's

Poison Ivy bulletin, available at
our office, or sneak a peek at
the photos on our Web site.

A relative
problem
Many people get rashes that
look like that of poison ivy, but
swear "they were nowhere
near it". Several relatives of this
itchy invader are also found in
our area. These include edible
plants such as the mango, pis-
tachio and cashew, the inva-
sive-exotic Brazilian Pep-
pertree, and native sumacs and
Poisonwood. Therefore, if you
get a rash from poison ivy, be
careful with mangos and be


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

prepared when chopping out
those problematic Peppers
from your Florida Yard.
Our Eastern Poison Ivy has
the name Toxicodendron radi-
cans, although some may call
it Rhus radicans. Any way you
call it, look for a climbing
woody vine that can live for
many years. The stem has
small aerial roots that let it
cling to upright trunks of trees
or palms and walls. This is a
common plant in local wood-
lands.
When cabbage palms are
moved from the wild into the
landscape, poison ivy vines can
also be transplanted with
them. Less common is the
appearance of a seedling
under power lines, courtesy of
one of our feathered friends.
Leaves of three let them be.
The leaf of this plant, or
more correctly, the leaflet, is
quite variable in shape. Most
have heard of the adage:
"leaves of three let them be."
Poison ivy leaves actually con-
sist of three shiny leaflets. Indi-
vidual leaflets measure from
two to four inches long and are
pointed at the tip.
Poison Ivy is often confused
with other multiple leaved
plants. A common look-alike is
another native vine, Virginia
Creeper, which has five dull-
green leaflets.
Small yellowish-green flow-
ers appear in the spring and
grow in clusters right above the
leaf stalks. Seed-like fruits, with


a soft fleshy covering, are one-
quarter inch in size and gray-
ish-white when the clusters
ripen in the fall. In winter, Poi-
son Ivy leaves turn red and fall
from the vine but be aware
they still have sap that can
cause rashes.
The fruit of Poison Sumac,
which is not native to our area,
is also whitish in color. The
Sumacs found in our area have
red fruit, and are important as a
food source for wildlife. Poison
Oaks are likewise not found
here in South Central Florida.

An irritating oil
Inside these plants is a
chemical called urushiol. This
toxin irritates skin and mucous
membranes. Some people are
quite sensitive to the effects
while others show no prob-
lems. Sensitivity to the poison
ivy relatives can also come and
go as we get older. Urushiol
has no effect on other animals,
but pets may get this oil on
their hair and carry it to us.
Susceptible people show
intense itching within hours, or
it may take several days after
contact with the poison oil.
Skin inflammation and blisters
then erupt on the skin. Itching
doesn't spread the rash, but oil
residues under the fingernail
might "spread the red". And
note that burning poison ivy
plant parts is not a good idea:
the sap in the smoke can
spread the toxin.

Preparing
to rip it out
Extremely sensitive persons
should ask for help when
removing these plants. If you


expect exposure to these
plants, prepare with what you
wear, and use the new lotions
that prevent rashes. Lotions
and creams containing the
active ingredient bentoquatam
(e.g.: Ivy-Block) should be
used before the weed-whack-
ing begins. When properly
applied, 15 minutes before
exposure to the poison ivy rela-
tives, the symptoms may be
eliminated.
Long pants and long
sleeved shirts, fully enclosed
shoes, with leather or canvas
gloves are suggested. If vines or
branches are growing above,
protective eye wear and a
wide-brimmed hat should also
be worn. Avoid brushing up
against the plants as much as
possible during removal opera-
tions. Protective clothing
should be carefully removed as
soon as practical after expo-
sure to these plants. Don't mix
these clothes with other laun-
dry the irritating oil could be
transferred.
If accidental exposure to
poison ivy occurs, a ten per-
cent water solution of potassi-
um permanganate applied 5-
10-minutes after exposure may
prevent rashes. It should be fol-
lowed by repeated washes
with soap and cool water to
remove the oily sap. Thou-
sands of other folk-remedies
also exist, but few work for
everyone. In case of severe
reactions, get to a hospital or
consult with qualified medical
professionals.

Ivy removal
Hand cultivation and prun-
ing (with gloves on) may work
for small plants if the person is


not fully sensitized. This may
be the best approach if weed
killers would damage desirable
plants growing close to this
vine.
In most cases, herbicides
are probably the better choice.
Many can be used directly on
poison ivy leaves growing
along fences. Some granular
herbicides are labeled for
longer follow-up ivy control.
However, most of these pesti-
cides will also injure or kill
desirable trees that harbor
these vines.
A technique that I like to
suggest is to cut out a section
of actively growing vine and
promptly applying a legal her-
bicide to the bottom half of the
cut stem to control re-sprout-
ing.
Choose an herbicide only
after reading the pesticide
label. At the time of this writ-
ing, some herbicides legally
used on poison ivy relatives
may contain 2, 4-D,
glyphosate, imazapyr, and tri-
clopyr. Some products are
labeled for specific sites, and
pesticide registrations change
over time. Check with your UF
Extension service for current
recommendations.

tion on our Okeechobee web

Florida marks Everglades restoration progress


LA BELLE Less than three
months after breaking
ground, South Florida water
managers celebrated the
completion of two 28-acre
test cell reservoirs as part of
Florida's Acceler8 Everglades
restoration initiative. The C-43
(Caloosahatchee River) West
Storage Reservoir test cells
will provide engineers with
valuable data that will guide
design and construction of
the $338 million C-43 West
Storage Reservoir. When
complete, the reservoir will
protect the Caloosahatchee
River and Estuary by captur-
ing and storing local
stormwater runoff and fresh-
water releases from Lake
Okeechobee. '
The South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) project managers
and engineers provided a
series of 40-minute guided
tours of the test cells allowing
community members to wit-
ness the reservoir's progress.
The two test cells hold
approximately 69 acre-feet
each of water from the


Caloosahatchee River the
equivalent of approximately
45 Olympic-sized pools and
provide engineers with critical
water quality, embankment
and seepage information to
design and build the C-43
Reservoir, which will be locat-
ed on more than 11,000 acres
of former agricultural land
known as Berry Groves.
"Completing the important
test cell phase is a landmark
achievement in Everglades
restoration," said Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) Secretary
Colleen M. Castille. "With
more than half ofthe Acceler8
projects already under way,
Florida will realize both the
environmental and social
benefits of this monumental
plan years ahead of sched-
ule."
Located in Hendry County
south of the Caloosahatchee
River and west of the Ortona
lock, the C-43 Reservoir will
hold approximately 170,000
acre-feet of water or approx-
imately 79,000 Olympic-sized
swimming pools averaging


20 feet deep. Scheduled to be
operational by 2011, the
above-ground reservoir will
comprise a significant portion
of the total water storage
requirement for the entire C-
43 basin. The reservoir will
capture and store local
stormwater runoff and fresh-
water releases from Lake
Okeechobee, reducing dis-
charges to the coastal estuar-
ies, improving the health of
the ecosystem and revitalizing
fish and oyster habitats by
maintaining salinity levels.
The project will also provide
public access and recreation
opportunities for outdoor
enthusiasts.
"The great turnout today
for the tours is an indication of
the public's high level of inter-
est in the restoration," said
SFWMD Governing Board
Member Alice J: Carlson.
"The tours also help the pub-
lic gain a better understanding
of how water storage is criti-
cal to getting the water right
to improve the health of our
interconnected Everglades
water bodies, including the


Caloosahatchee River and
Estuary."
The C-43 (Caloosahatchee
River) West Reservoir Project
is one of four Acceler8 proj-
ects launched this year. The
State started construction on
three treatment wetland
expansions in February, the C-
44 (St. Lucie River) Reser-
voir/Stormwater Treatment
Area in March and the Water
Preserve Area/Acme Basin B
Discharge Project construc-
tion in June
On Aug. 2, the State will
begin construction on the
Everglades Agricultural Area
Reservoir, the largest of the
three Acceler8 reservoirs,
which will have the capacity
to store approximately 62 bil-
lion gallons of water when
complete. The reservoir will
improve the timing and quali-
ty of water delivered to Ameri-
ca's Everglades.
Announced by Governor
Jeb Bush in October 2004,
Acceler8 is stepping up the
pace of 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
418,000 acre-feet of additional
water storage for Everglades
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.

Bronson reminds college-bound students to learn


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
students, their parents and
others who may be renting
apartments or houses at the
end of the summer to review
their rights and responsibili-
ties as tenants. College bound
students will be renting for
the first time this fall and
Bronson says they can avoid
the pitfalls if they do some
research in advance.
"Many college students
and their parents are focusing
on getting settled and may not
pay enough attention to the


details of the lease," Mr. Bron-
son said. "But that may end
up costing them and creating
headaches down the road. It
is much better to know exact-
ly what you are getting into
before signing a lease."
First and foremost, people
need to know there is no
grace period for canceling a
lease so they need to under-
stand all the terms of the con-
tract BEFORE they sign. A
prospective renter should
walk through the premises to
identify any preexisting dam-
age or problems that should
be fixed, taking pictures and
notes of any questionable


conditions. They should be
sure an agreement to fix any
problems is spelled out in the
lease. State law requires that
the landlord comply with
housing and health codes,
keep the unit in good repair
and keep the plumbing in
good working order.
However, tenants have
responsibilities as well. The
law says they must also com-
ply with housing and health
codes, keep the unit clean and
sanitary, not destroy or dam-
age any part of the premises,
not act in a manner which dis-
turbs the tenant's neighbors
and remove garbage from the


dwelling.
Bronson says one of the
biggest problems involves
multiple names on a lease, a
common practice with col-
lege students. If any of the ten-
ants leave, the others will be
held liable for his or her por-
tion of the rent. In addition, if
a renter has roommates who
are not on the lease, the
renter is held liable for the
entire amount.
Chapter 83 of the Florida
Statutes tellsexactly what can
be done if either party does
not comply with the require-
ments. The law spells out
when rent can be withheld,


under what conditions a ten-
ant can be evicted and
requires that notices to and
from a landlord must be in
writing. There are also specif-
ic time periods established to
resolve complaints.
The Department has a
detailed brochure on the land-
lord/tenant law on its Division
of Consumer Services website
at www.800helpfla.com
under Publications or con-
sumers can request a
brochure by calling the
Department's Consumer Hot-
line at 1-800-HELP FLA (1-

GAINESVILLE The U.S.
Department of Agriculture's
(USDA) Commodity Credit
Corporation (CCC) has
changed the marketing assis-
tance loan (MAL) and loan
deficiency payment (LDP)
program, announced Kevin L.
Kelley, State Executive Direc-
tor of the USDA Farm Service
Agency (FSA). The amended
policies and procedures affect
the 2006 and subsequent
crop years.
CCC made the changes in
Chapter 7 of the Code of Fed-
eral Regulations, Part 1421 (7
CFR Part 1421) through a final
rule issued on June 6. The
rule is posted online at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/dafp
/psd/7cfrl421.pdf. On July 7,
CCC clarified some of the
changes to open storage, con-
tract policy and other issues
through Notice LP-2035. The
notice is posted online at:
ftp://165.221.16.16/public/not
ices/lp_2035.pdf.


Some of the regulatory
changes to the MAL and LDP
program include:
Beneficial interest provi-
sions In the past, loan pro-
gram regulations did not state
that a producer loses benefi-
cial interest in a loan eligible
commodity when the com-.
modity is delivered to a dairy,
feedlot, ethanol plant, feed
mill, wool pool or other end-
use facility. The regulations
were amended to state that
beneficial interest is lost
when a loan eligible com-
modity is delivered to one of
the previously mentioned
facilities.
Announcement of the
adjusted world price (AWP)
for rice CCC changed the
announcement time and day
from Tuesdays at 3 p.m. East-
ern Time (ET) to Wednesdays
at 7 a.m. ET.
Lien searches and
financing statements After
reviewing the costs incurred


by CCC and the benefits to
CCC, CCC will limit its use of
lien searches for MALs greater
than $25,000 and file financ-
ing statements only for farm-
stored MAL disbursements of
$25,000 or more. In the past,
CCC conducted lien searches
on all loans regardless of the
loan amount. CCC may, how-
ever, conduct lien searches
and file financing statements
for loan disbursements of
$25,000 or less when there is
reason to believe that CCC's
interests will not be protect-
ed.
Use of form CCC-633 EZ
- In an effort to simplify the
LDP request process, CCC
recently issued a new LDP
form, CCC-633 EZ. The CCC-
633 EZ is a two-part form con-
sisting of an agreement,
which is page 1 of the CCC-
633 EZ, and a request for ben-
efits, which is either pages 2,
3 or 4, depending on the com-
modity.


The 2002 Farm Bill pro-
vides for MALs and LDPs for
the 2002-2007 crops of wheat,
corn, grain sorghum, barley,
oats, soybeans, other oilseeds
(including sunflower seed,
canola, safflower, flaxseed,
rapeseed, mustard seed,
crambe, and sesame seed),
rice, upland cotton, peanuts,
honey, wool, mohair, dry
peas, lentils and small chick-
peas.
MALs provide producers
interim financing at harvest
time to meet cash flow needs
without having to sell their
commodities when market
prices are typically at harvest-
time lows. Allowing produc-
ers to store production at har-
vest facilitates more orderly
marketing of commodities
throughout the year. A pro-
ducer who is eligible to
obtain a loan, but who agrees
to forgo the loan, may obtain
an LDP. USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) administers the


MAL and LDP program on
behalf of CCC.
An FSA fact sheet pro-
vides more information about
the MAL and LDP program.
The fact sheet is found online
at
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/pas/
publications/facts/htmlnon-
rec03.htm.
FSA news releases and
media advisories are available
on FSA's Web site at:
