Murders in Clewiston: Three found dead

FDLE agents took evidence at the crime scene Tuesday morning.

Triple murder in Clewiston


By Ideybis Gonzalez
and Jose Zaragoza
CLEWISTON In the tradi-
tionally quiet neighborhood of
Avenida Del Rio in Clewiston, at
the Whitaker home, law enforce-
ment agents found one of the
most disturbing scenes in the
city's history Tuesday morning -
the slain bodies of the homes'
three inhabitants.
Hours later, police located a
suspect, who fled from them
when he was spotted. When cor-
nered, the man shot himself in
"-,he head w'ith a gun, a i ,om.i
with him \\a arrested rmomennt
later
The murder vicnms hawe been
identified as Joey Glenn \hitak-
er. 52. Carol\i Cox \\Whuaker 53
and My\rtle Lei Cox 80
According to Poiice Chiel Don


Richard
Harker


Gutshall, Tuesday morning's dis-
covery is the first triple murder in
the city's history. The last mur-
der in Clewiston was in 2002.
According to information pro-
vided by the police department,
the call came in to the station at
approximately 11:30 a.m. that
three bodies had been found at
the residence. Investigators, after
finding the scene, contacted the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) to take on
the investigation. The Clewiston


Police Department stood guard
at the home, and waited until
FDLE agents arrived.
For hours investigators with
the medical examiner's office
and FDLE combed through the
red brick house, with waves of
cars driving by the surrounding
streets to catch a glimpse of the
ongoing investigation. Many resi-
dents knew by word of mouth
what had happened.

Hendry County



considers plea



..from the HCSO


By Nicole Cuny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Hendry
County Sheriff Ronnie Lee
asked county officials to con-
sider allowing one of his
deputies to live at the gun
range in Pioneer free of charge
in exchange for his guarding
the property after hours.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee and
members of Hendry County
said that security is needed on
the gun range property at all
times because it is isolated. The
sheriff made his case at the
Hendry County Commission


meeting on Aug. 11 in Clewis-
ton.
For security reasons, a
deputy of the sheriff's depart-
ment volunteered to relocate
from his home to a mobile
home on the gun range.
A police car on the property
is positioned for all to see, a
deterrent to would-be tres-
passers if someone decided
to break the laws of the gun
range, the sheriff thought, see-
ing a cop car would scare them
away.

CLEWISTON Clewiston
High School just opened its doors
for a new school year and many
new students will be going to the
high school.
Along with these new students,
new teachers will be heading up
lesson plans.
Clewiston High School has
hired 18 new staff members to
teach this school year and one new
assistant principal. They have
come from everywhere, including
Missouri and Kentucky.
Linda White, a new English
teacher, has been teaching Lan-
guage Arts for six years.
"Being a reading teacher this
year, I want to instill a love of read-


ing into the students," she said.
Some teachers are new to the
aspect of teaching. Betzi Mendez,
who will be teaching a ceramics
class, will begin her teaching
career at Clewiston High School.
She said she feels that since stu-
dents were not subjected to
ceramics at a young age, she
believes she should introduce
them to clay and let them get a feel
for pottery.
These new teachers have pre-
pared for their first day of teaching
at CHS and are ready to begin a
new year.
New teachers include: Larry
Antonacci, Eureaka Baity, Donna
Baburg, Curtis Clay, Matt Csoka,

Woman takes steps toward final recovery


By Nicole Cuny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON For one of
Clewiston's own residents, it has
been a tough couple of months.
Her story in the community
has been the talk of her friends
and neighbors, and the occasional
stranger who learns the details of
her difficult ordeal.
BobiJo Clark had led a normal
life, until a fateful day in March
changed everything.
Bobi Jo was leaving the R&R in
Clewiston and a van obstructed
her view of the oncoming traffic.
She eased up further and further


until she could see the traffic.
With a car bumper-to-bumper
behind her, she had no choice but
to pull out into the traffic.
A semi truck slammed into her
car.
After BobiJo was rushed to the
hospital, doctors told her family
to just pull the plug her future
was uncertain. Bobi Jo, it seemed
then, was not going to make it.
Her family faced a decision.
They decided not to pull the plug
on her and hung on to BobiJo for
dear life.
Since then, Bobi Jo has been
from Lee Memorial Hospital in Ft.
Myers to Oakbrook Nursing


Home in LaBelle and back again.
She is currently in the nursing
home in LaBelle where she is sur-
rounded by family and friends
who can be found constantly
praying for her recovery.
With rising medical bills, Bobi
Jo's family struggles to keep up.
Knowing they had Medicaid
put them at ease until the doctor
told them he does not accept the
insurance.
Christy made phone calls to
everyone she knew to get a list of
doctors who took Medicaid. Even
after calling the governor's office
for help with the list, Christy still
had no answers.


But BobiJo's family would not
easily give up. Finally, after reach-
ing Mark Foley, Christy received
the list she wanted.
"I would like to thank each
and every person at Oakbrook of
LaBelle for everything they have
done for Bobi Jo," said Bobi Jo's
mother, Christy.
With the doctor's initial
response to let BobiJo go, no one
would believe everything she can
do now.
Just five months after her acci-
dent, BobiJo is talking. It is some-
thing no one thought she would
ever do again. Though she cannot
hold a lengthy conversation with


anyone, she is making progress.
With Bobi Jo's three school-
aged children at relatives' homes,
BobiJo's family needs all the sup-
port they can get.
BobiJo has learned to do other
things such as part the hair from
her face and walk with assistance.
With additional therapy, family
members are hoping to see even
more improvements from BobiJo.
In the meantime, the family
remains grateful to everyone who
has offered their support.
"I would also like to thank
community members for the love
and prayers they have given Bobi
Jo," said Christy.

Portrait of Micanopy debuts at museum Births


BIG CYPRESS SEMINOLE
RESERVATION An historic paint-
ing of the early Seminole leader
Micanopy by 19th Century portrait
artist Henry Inman goes on public
display for the first time Friday, Aug.
18, 2006 at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Muse-
um on the Big Cypress Seminole
Reservation. Painted in 1832, the
painting was recently acquired by
the Seminole Tribe of Florida from a
private collector. It will be on display
through November
Micanopy was chief of the Semi-
noles during the Second Seminole
War, from 1835-1842. At first friend-
ly and helpful to the encroaching set-
tlers, he later moved to aggressively
defend his territory, which had
become increasingly occupied by
farmers and settlers from the north.
After seven bloody years of war,
Micanopy and many of his fellow
Seminoles were captured and sent to


Oklahoma, where he died in Janu-
ary, 1949. The town of Micanopy in
Alachua County was founded in
1821 at the site of the former Semi-
nole camp, Cuscowilla.

About Henry Inman
Famed American portrait artist
Henry Inman was born in Utica, N.Y
in 1801. He apprenticed with noted
portraitist John Wesley Jarvis. Then,
in 1827, Inman established his own
studio in New York City, where he
worked in partnership with his stu-
dent, Thomas Cummings, to create
portraits of many of America's
wealthiest and most powerful fami-
lies. He was the first vice-president of
the National Academy of Design. In
1831, Inman was hired by newspa-
per editor and former Indian Com-
missioner Thomas L. Kenney to
paint oil copies of original portraits


by Charles Bird King of famous Indi-
ans. Almost all of the 143 King por-
traits, including the portrait of
Micanopy, were destroyed in the
1865 fire at the Smithsonian Institu-
tion in Washington, D.C.

About the Ah-Tah-Thi-
Ki Museum
The Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Museum
houses the nation's largest display of
the life and culture of the uncon-
quered Florida Seminoles. The
museum includes 5,000 square feet
of exhibits in a modem museum
adjacent to a cypress dome near the
Florida Everglades. Visitors enjoy
lifelike displays of how Seminoles
lived in the 1800s, along with rare
artifacts. Part of the Seminole collec-
tion on loan from the Smithsonian
National Museum of the American
Indian is featured at the Ah-Tah-Thi-


Ki Museum, including moccasins,
leggings, turtle shell rattles, silver-
work, beaded sashes, and medicine
baskets. The Museum also has
exhibits of its own holdings, includ-
ing southeastern beaded shoulder
bags and Seminole patchwork cloth-
ing.
The exhibit gallery includes user-
friendly computers where visitors
can find more information on the
Seminole Tribe's rich history and cul-
ture. In addition to the informative
exhibits, the Museum features a liv-
ing village with Seminole Tribal
members at work making handmade
arts and crafts.
Billie Swamp Safari and the Ah-
Tah-Thi-Ki Museum are located on
the Big Cypress Seminole Reserva-
tion, midway between Fort Laud-
erdale and Naples off 1-75 (Alligator
Alley). Take 1-75 to exit 49, then
drive north 16 miles.


'Clown' face may hide different personality


What is it about clowns that scare
some children? Yesterday I figured it
out along with a dear friend. Their
face tells a different story than what
is in their heart. To a child's instincts
they may seem to be hiding some-
thing. My dear friend suffered with
serious child abuse. The abuser was
her mother. To the world her mother
seemed to be nurturing kind person,
but behind closed doors she wore
another face. She has nightmares
about clowns and when the. own
*"face ts removed-it is her mother
SMy mother w%_i lik~Iat ro.
EEveryone loed hr Tie')- in't see
the screaming rude vicious side of
her. She put on a different face for
them. Are you wearing a lot of differ-
ent faces and your family can never
tell who you are orwho you are going
to be? It is up to us to change this
behavior and make our inside face


The

match our outside face. .
-.When.,e. Lfll Lnoihe trap of per-
fectionism and pleasing others is
'when ve feel the nee to put on
another mask. We don't have to pro-
tect ourselves any longer. A wounded
animal will pretend to be healthy so
it will not draw attention to the
wound. Aren't we all wounded in
some way or another? We don't want
anyone to see our pain or our imper-


fections. We might get in trouble. My
dear friend said something yesterday
that was so profound that I have to
share it with you. Here is what she
said to me in an instant message:
"There are wounded caregivers
that pass on those wounds to their
children; what was done to them will
in some way be used to be done to
you. The first line of their strategy is
to mold our self-concept to suit their
wounded needs, but we don't know
they are wounded. They are where
we learri everything..: we love them.
We trust them even when they hurt
us.
"As children we can't afford to
know that our very means of survival
is wounded so we internalize the
blame and incorporate it into our
self-concept. Without knowing it, we
are using a survival mechanism. It's
safer to think that there are things


wrong with us, than things wrong
with our means of survival without
realizing it. These get formed into
our self-concept.
"Our inner dialog parrots this
back to us. We take our inner dialog
as the guidance it was created to be,
but we were never taught that any of
it was corrupted! We follow it like it
is all facts and God's word. Even
when we get more worldly and learn
that all that was done to us, taught to
us isn't necessarily true. We were
never taught how to "evaluate" the
ongoing stream of inner dialog to
guide us. It never occurred to us that
part of the maturing process is learn-
ing not only how to think for our-
selves but how to edit our own think-
ing itself!"
When she wrote this my mouth
just hung open in the shock of how
simple yet how true her words were.

Katie Mac Gurr.
Katie Mae Gurr was bor on Aug.
4, 1922, in Ocala. She departed this
world on Aug. 5, 2006, one day after
her 84th birthday.
She was preceded in death by her
husband, Vernon H. Gurr; her par-
ents, Russell B. Amett and Bonnie
Bell Reynolds, along with her sister
Marjorie L. Hansford.
She is survived by her daughters,
MadelineJo (Gary) Baker and Melin-
da R. (late husband John) Hunter.
She had six grandchildren, Melinda
(Bradley) Dunn, Tommy (Becky)
Baker, John Hunter, Lori (Jay) Con-


gleton, Craig Hunter, and Lisa
Hunter, all from Belle Glade; her sis-

nieces, nephews, great-nieces and
nephews and great-great nieces and

Katie had been a resident of the
Glades for over 70 years. Her knowl-
edge of the Glades and 'Old Florida'
was very expansive and she loved
reading about the Glades history.
She owned and operated many
restaurants in the 50s and 60s. Her
reputation for cooking was well-
known all over Florida, and as far
away as the state of California up to
the Northeast. Her nieces and
nephews still talk about her 'Broast-
ed Chicken' and the many wonderful
desserts she used to make.
At the age of 50, Katie decided to
make a career change. She enrolled


in Cosmetology School and was
known as one of the oldest students
to have successfully passed her state
exam and obtain her license. She
worked for more than 20 years at
Margaret's Beauty Salon, owned by
Margaret Davis who was Katie's best
friend.
She was known for telling some
of the best stories and holding a
group's attention wherever she was.
Some of you reading this may
have been a recipient of a phone call
or two from Mom, as she loved her
telephone. She may have called a
didn't say anything but "How are
you doing?" and then some may
have been blessed with one of those
calls where she was like the 'Energiz-
er Bunny' where she went on and
on. Regardless, she loved people,
their stories, and will surely be
missed.
Funeral services were held Thurs-
day, Aug. 10, 2006 at the Glades
Funeral Chapel in Belle Glade.
Entombment followed at Forever
Glades Mausoleum.

Stormwater treatment area


to be open to alligator hunters


Clewiston News/Linda Gann Stiles
Clewiston resident, Linda Gann Stiles took this photo as a 9.5 foot, 300 pound alligator caught
in her backyard was being 'measured up' before being taken away by alligator trappers.

Alligator visit cut short by trappers


CLEWISTON Clewiston res-
ident, Linda Gann Stiles and her
family recently had a close call with
a very 'unwelcome guest' in her
yard. The scaly visitor from Ridgdill
Rock Pit was unaware of his
upcoming fate once the plan for his
capture was set into motion.
"I contacted the Florida Game
and Fish Commission and they put
us in contact with a gator trapper.
Trappers, Randy and Dennis
Perkins came to our home on
Ridgdill Road on Aug. 7, and put
out bait for the gator in the lake
behind our house," stated Mrs.
Stiles.
"On the evening of Aug. 8, the
gator took the bait. I called the
trappers and they came back out
and captured the gator," stated
Mrs. Stiles
After the alligator's mouth was
taped shut, Mrs. Stiles' grandson,
Chandler Gann Stiles and a neigh-
bor, Raymond Blount helped the
trappers bring the alligator to shore
and into our back yard.
"It was a very exciting evening
for all of us!" she said.
Mrs. Stiles mentioned that since
there have been several deaths in
Florida from alligator attacks, she
and her neighbors were tncerned
about such a large alligator being in
the water so close to homes.
The captured alligator was
approximately 9.5 feet long and
weighed about 300 pounds. Mrs.


Chandler Gann Stiles and his neighbor, Raymond Blount
assisted in bringing the alligator on shore. Alligator trapper,
Randy Perkins is the brave one who went down into the lake
and taped the alligator's mouth shut.


Stiles stated that the alligator had
killed several dogs in the last cou-
ple of weeks and one just the day
before his capture.


With only their dark snouts
and heads visible above the water-
line, American alligators often
manage to elude even the most
dedicated daylight observers. It's
a different story at night when the
reptiles' glowing yellow eyes easi-
ly reflect the glare of a high-pow-
ered spotlight.
Soon, that knowledge will be
put to use by hunters as they
spread out across Florida's
marshes and lakes to take thou-
sands of alligators for meat, hides
and trophies.
For the first time, 50 of those
hunters have the opportunity to
test their skills in STA-5 in
Hendry County, an 8-square-mile
stormwater treatment area creat-
ed by the South Florida Water
Management District as part of
the Everglades restoration effort.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission will let
hunters take 100 alligators out of
STA-5 over nine weekends in
August, September and October.
A small percentage of the abun-
dant aquatic-loving lizards, about
1 million can be found statewide,
are hunted annually following

regulations set and monitored by
the FWC.
The District's stormwater
treatment area is one of four new
land areas approved for alligator
hunting by the FWC this year,
said Jen Williams, public hunt
area biologist for the FWC's
south region.
The District agreed to open the
wetland area as part of its contin-
uing commitment to broaden
land access for public recreation,
said Fred Davis, Division Director
for Land Stewardship.
For the last few years, the Dis-
trict has welcomed hikers, bird
watchers and duck hunters in the
wetland southwest of Clewiston
off Blumberg Road. There are
plans to add public restrooms and
a parking area on site in 2007.
There are also boat ramps at
STA-5, an area designated by the
FWC as alligator harvest unit 406,
but hunters aren't allowed to use
motorized boats at the site to help
them capture and kill alligators.
Alligators can be hunted on foot
from the levee banks or from
boats that can be paddled or
poled.
The boating restriction is


designed to prevent motors from
stirring up phosphorus in the
stormwater treatment area.
Stormwater treatment areas are
constructed wetlands designed to
reduce levels of the growth-stimu-
lating nutrient in surface water
flowing into the Everglades. High
levels of phosphorus encourage
the overgrowth of non-native
species, altering habitat for Flori-
da's native plant and animal life.
Alligator hunting in STA-5 is
scheduled on Friday and Saturday
evenings of Aug. 18 and 19, Aug.
25 and 26, Sept. 1 and 2, Sept. 8
and 9, Sept. 15 and 16, and on
Oct. 6 and 7. Hunters with per-
mits to take alligators from STA5,
but who didn't capture their limit
of two alligators, can try again Fri-
day and Saturday evenings of Oct.
13 and 14, Oct. 20 and 21, and
Oct. 27 and 28.
Camping is not allowed in the
stormwater treatment area.
For a map and additional infor-
mation about alligator hunting in
STA-5, visit the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission

SCHOOL DRESS CODE: I'm sure that I am not the only parent of a
Middle School student that has had problems with their dress code. I
am very upset about the fact that some teachers are sending kids to the
office for a butterfly on their shirts. They are pulling these children out
of their classroom making them miss curriculum time for a tiny viola-
tion of the dress code. First of all, I was not aware that there was a for-
mal mandated dress code for the kids in this county but, if there is one
I would like to see it. I send my kids to school in uniform colors and
their only problem is with a butterfly the size of a dime that is on their
shirts. This is totally ridiculous! I think the law states that every child
is entitled to a FREE public education no matter how they come
dressed to school. However, I do try to comply with the colors as much
as I can, given it is very hard to find clothes for my children. Another
thing is the jackets. Why are our kids not allowed to wear theirjackets
in a classroom when the classroom is cold? I am an adult and I get cold
very easily. Why would they think that children wouldn't? If you are a
parent with this problem I urge you to call the school and let them
know how we all feel. Maybe all of us together can find a solution to
the problem.

WASTE: Why are we wasting money on Senior Connections Nutri-
tion Program when Hope Connection has taken the responsibility of
serving the elderly clients. The Glades and Hendry County commis-
sioners need to investigate this problem because they are wasting our
tax payers' money.

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore
Special to Clewiston News
Greetings! This week I thought I
would answer a few questions that
we are getting on a regular basis
here at the Chamber questions
that we do not mind answering by
the way, especially when they are
our own fault!
I am referring to the ballot that
we included in the newsletter ask-
ing you to vote for your new board
of directors. The biggest question
we get is, "Can we vote for more
than one person?" Yes, you may
vote for one person or cast a vote
for all five people. It all depends on
you. We have people who do not
know all of the nominees and as a
result are only voting for those that
they know. Not only do we under-
stand that, we encourage that. I
know if I am in a voting booth and
I do not know what a new referen-
dum will do, I sure don't vote on
it! Vote for the people you know,


the people you feel comfortable
with, and most importantly the
people you think would do the
best job to serve the membership
and community.
The second question or com-
ment that we are getting is: "What
are the names in the second col-
umn?" Simple, that is who the
nominees work for. This year's
nominees work for: Badcock Furni-
ture, Sugar Realty, Luna Construc-
tion, First Bank, and My Assistant.
We have had people ask if PJ.
Mahoney is "my assistant" here at
the Chamber, but she actually runs
her own business with that name. I
was given a suggestion that on next
years ballot it might be a good idea
to include a short paragraph about
each nominee so people know
more about them. I think that is a
great idea, and will include those
on next year's ballot.
If you have any additional
questions, please do not hesitate
to call us at our Chamber offices,


(863) 983-7979. Please take a
minute and fill out your ballots,
don't forget- one vote CAN make
a difference.
Also, included with our
newsletter was the nomination
form for our "Business of the Year"
award. This is the first year we have
done this award and we are hopeful
that the response is a warm one. It
never hurts to get that extra boost
of recognition from your peers and
having that plaque hanging in your
office might be a pretty good adver-
tisement for yourself. The form
allows you to nominate yourselves
or be nominated by another Cham-
ber member. Some people are hum-
ble and would never put their own
name on something like that, but
wish a customer would. Then there
are those businesses that know
how hard they work every day and
take a lot of pride in their work.
While it may go unnoticed most of
the time, they would like that
moment of recognition and will tell


us why it should be their establish-
ment that wins our award. If there
is a place that has caught your
attention, let us know about it. The
deadline for entry is Sept. 1, and
our board of directors will then dis-
cuss all the nominees and select a
winner. That shining moment of
recognition will arrive at our annu-
al Chamber Dinner on Sept. 19.
Speaking of our dinner, tickets
are now officially on sale. You can
see any Chamber Board member,
or stop by the Chamber of Com-
merce for your tickets. Your tick-
ets are the same price as last year-
$27.50. The change we have
made is the number of tickets
available. We are only seating 200
people this year. It was a tad bit
cramped last year and walking
around was not the easiest thing
in the world. We are looking to
eliminate that as an issue and
make sure you all have a great
time. We hope to see you there!

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. I
tuned in to your radio show last
week and heard you talk about a
new flea product for dogs. You said
that this product will repel mosqui-
toes. Does that mean I don't have
to do use heartworm prevention?
Thanks Doc, Clay in Clewiston.
answer: Hey Clay! Thanks for
tuning in to my show, I'm so glad
to be back on the air! To answer
your question, No! Mosquito repel-
lent does NOT take the place of tra-
ditional heartworm prevention.It
only gives that little extra boost to
repel mosquitoes. Please keep up
with your monthly heartworm pre-
vention it is very important!
Great question Clay. Take care
Doc Savvy.

Doc Savvy

tions to DocSavvy@aol.com and

Solunar Theory: the moon can make the fish bite


By Bob Wattendorf
Biologist, Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission
The best time to go freshwater
fishing, for me, is whenever I get a
chance.
However, if your schedule is
flexible and you want to be a bit
more scientific about it, pay atten-
tion to the moon. Many fish and
game activity calendars you see in
news media and elsewhere are
based on the Solunar Theory,
developed byJohn Alden Knight.
In 1926, Knight considered
some folklore he picked up while
fishing in Florida and decided to
evaluate 33 factors that might influ-
ence fresh or saltwater fishes to be
more active periodically. Three of
them seemed to merit further
examination sunrises/sunsets,
moon phases and tides. From that,
the avid fly fisherman created the
Solunar Theory, which he named
for Sol (the Roman sun god), and
Luna (the Roman goddess who
personified the moon).
Anglers already knew tides
were an important factor in saltwa-
ter fishing success, and recognized
the connection between tides and
moon phases. Meanwhile, Ameri-


Fish Busters

Bulletin

can Indians, and other groups that
depended on hunting and fishing
for survival, realized animals were
more active during full and new
moons. Knight speculated the rela-
tionship between the sun and
moon, rather than tidal stages,
might provide a way to predict fish-
ing success. Knight determined
that midway between when the
moon rose and set, and vice-versa,
fishing activity peaked. He coined
the phrases "major Solunar peri-
ods" and "minor Solunar periods"
to describe them. These periods of
greatest animal activity (not only
fish) last 90 minutes to three hours,
depending on the moon's relation-
ship to the sun, its distance from
Earth and the sun's angle from the
equator.
In 1936, Knight published the
first Solunar Tables based on this
information. However, we now
know that, to be accurate, the pre-
cise times from each table must
consider the geographic location
and be adjusted for daylight saving


time, when appropriate. You can
approximate these times by adding
six hours to the rise and set times
for the moon (see
MyFWC.com/Fishing/Schedule/Lu
narCalculator.html for an online
calculator for any date and loca-
tion).
The intensity of Solunar peri-
ods' impact varies according to the
position of the moon, its distance
from Earth and the angle of the
moon above or below the equator.
New moons provide maximum
impact when the sun and moon
are traveling in rhythm with their
forces combined. During a full
moon, they are opposite one
another, with one or the other
nearly always above the horizon,
and they provide a strong second-
ary peak. Then the intensity tapers
off to a minimum during the
moon's third quarter. June has the
greatest combined Solunar influ-
ence. You should also consider
local weather patterns. Fish and
wildlife have an innate ability to
predict weather and react accord-
ingly. Barometric changes, espe-
cially a downward trend, often can
turn fishing off. Conversely, some-
times an approaching cold front
seems to make fish go into a feed-


ing frenzy to beat the bad weather.
Typically, if the barometer is steady
or rising and the air temperature is
significantly higher than the water
temperature, a stronger response
to the Solunar periods is likely, but
immediately following a cold front,
some fish are rather lethargic. Tem-
perature is also associated with
spawning times and can be a key
factor in the seasonal patterns of
fish behavior. You can find more
about that at MyFWC.com/fish-
ing/schedule/seasonal-
calendar.html.
A natural day for fish, and many
other animal species, revolves
around a twice-daily "biological
clock" that appears to coincide
with lunar time. It is based on the
time it takes the moon to complete
one rotation of the earth (an aver-
age of 24 hours and 53 minutes).
This explains why ocean tides are
about an hour later each day and
why most fish, freshwater species
included, will feed up to an hour
later each day. Regardless of
whether species are most active in
daytime or night, sunrise and sun-
set are important to in their move-
ments and feeding.
So when you put it all together,
the odds are if you go fishing six


Bear cubs taken to a sanctuary


Two female Florida black bear
cubs have arrived at Busch
Wildlife Sanctuary, where they
will live the remainder of their
lives.
The cubs were captured Sun-
day near Baker County Hospital in
Macclenny. The sow with them
has been euthanized because of
her aggressiveness toward
humans, entering residential
neighborhoods, being fed by peo-
ple and eating from garbage con-
tainers, according to Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) officials.
Only one other facility -
Lions, Tigers & Bears of Arcadia,
besides Busch Wildlife Sanctuary,
which is a nonprofit facility in
Vero Beach that receives no gov-
ernmental funding said it could
take one or both of the cubs, if
necessary. Both facilities have
FWC permits to take in certain
wildlife.
However, FWC officials said
while finding a permitted facility
for the cubs resulted in a positive
outcome for them, usuaRt-that is
not the case.
"These cubs are fortunate,"
said Kipp Frohlich, section leader
of Imperiled Species for FWC.
"There are not many facilities will-
ing to take bears, and we usually
have to euthanize nuisance bears
when they lose their fear of
humans.
"That is why we cannot stress
enough never feed a bear, and
make sure to keep pet food, bird
feeders and seed, garbage and
other food items where bears
cannot get into them.
"Bears are attracted to
garbage. They like to dig in
Dumpsters and garbage cans. But
there are ways commercial
Dumpsters and residential
garbage cans can be tightly
secured," Frohlich said. "We need
the cooperation of waste-man-
agement companies and local
communities if we are to solve
this problem."
The sow was sighted several
times at an Orange County
Dumpster that did not have a
secured lid. Eventually, after own-
ers secured the lid, the female and
her cubs left the immediate vicini-
ty and did not return.
"We can't stress enough the
illegality of feeding bears," said
Matthew Pollock, FWC's North
Central Regional wildlife manage-
ment biologist.
In most cases, it results in
them being accustomed to

humans and conditions them to
associate humans with food.
"That creates a public safety
issue," Pollock said. "Because
they become conditioned to
human food sources, they will tol-
erate the presence of people to
gain access to food provided by
humans."
Information about how to
avoid negative encounters with
bears is found at
MyFWC.com/bear/brochures/
flyerfoodattractants.pdf;
MyFWC.com/bear/con-
flicts.htm or
MyFWC.com/whatsnew/
05/statewide/bears.html.
The cubs will remain in captiv-
ity for the remainder of their lives,
because they learned to associate
humans with food from unse-
cured garbage containers and
from people feeding them. Cubs
usually remain with their mother
for their first two years.
The bears' plight began a year
ago when, on Aug. 18, 2005, the
sow, exhibiting stressed behavior,
was found in a residential subdivi-
sion in Apopka. FWC officials
relocated her to an adjacent
wooded area for her safety. They
did not deem her a nuisance bear
at that time.
Then, on July 7, 2006, she was
captured again in Apopka this
time near a garbage source and
deemed a nuisance. FWC officials
relocated the sow and three cubs
to the Apalachicola National For-
est.


On Aug. 1, people in the vicini-
ty of Gulf View Campground in
Eastpoint reported seeing a
tagged female bear with two cubs.
(FWC officials do not know what
happened to the third cub). On
Aug. 3, a woman reported a
female bear with two ear tags and
two cubs at a residence in East-
point. The woman admitted to
investigators she intentionally fed
the sow and cubs by leaving a pile
of dog food out for them but said
she would remove the items. She
also told investigators she noted
aggressive behavior by the mother
bear, according to FWC officials.
That same day, investigators
and officials set a trap and cap-
tured the trio the next day.
The woman received a written
warning for feeding the bears, but
said she did not know she was
doing anything wrong.
She also told the investigator
she "was afraid (FWC) would
euthanize the bears."
The officer told her feeding
bears could cause them to
become familiar with humans
and possibly cause the bears to
become aggressive, which would
require FWC to destroy them.
In an attempt to provide the
bears one last opportunity to sur-
vive in the wild, FWC officials
released the trio in a remote area
of Osceola National Forest on the
Columbia-Baker county line.
Theri, on Sunday, less than two
weeks after their release, the
female and two cubs showed up


Mrs. Krista Mills
Mis Susan Garbow
SM l. Lori Gibson
Mrs. Robin McDonald
Mrs. Dawn Miller
Mrs. Denise Thompson


in a resident's garage in Macclen-
ny, across from the Baker County
Hospital emergency room.
FWC officials captured the
bears and took them to an FWC
facility pending final disposition.
"While to date no attacks by a
Florida black bear on a human
have been documented, people
should give bears ample space
and never attempt to disturb, pet
or feed them," said Stephanie
Simek, FWC's bear management
program coordinator. "Bears are
shy, intelligent and highly adapt-
able animals and typically avoid
confrontations with people. Once
they become accustomed to peo-
ple as part of their surroundings,
they no longer consider humans a
threat."


hours after the moon rises or sets,
and that time coincides with sun-
rise during a new moon, while the
barometer is rising, the water levels
are adequate, water quality is
good, there are plenty of big hun-
gry fish looking for food, and not
too many big hungry mosquitoes,
you've got the optimum fishing
time. Or if all this confuses you as
much as it does me, remember -
the BEST time to go fishing' is
whenever you can go safely.

EDUCATION 9


C.M.S. launches 'Stand Up' campaign endry county School
Lunch Menu


CLEWISTON Clewiston Mid-
dle School has a new campaign to
enhance academics and behavior as
well as pride for the campus environ-
ment. Our campaign slogan is "Stand
Up! If you can't stand up for some-
thing, you'll fall for anything...so
STAND UP!"
Thanks to the donation of shrubs
from Wal-Mart and the effort of some
dedicated teachers, we have begun


the task of beautifying our campus.
Aside from the planting of the
donated shrubbery there has also
been some painting of our Stand Up
signs in the cafeteria area. We hope to
instill in our students the pride in our
campus to keep it clean and neat.
In an effort to promote strong aca-
demics and positive behavior, we will
be having monthly recognition cere-
monies. Students who meet the aca-


demic or behavioral goals will partici-
pate in such things as ice cream
socials, movies, and barbeques. We
would love to have 100 percent par-
ticipation so we will be doing our best
to help our students achieve both aca-
demically and behaviorally.
We welcome community support
to our campaign. If you are a parent of
a Clewiston Middle School student
and wish to volunteer your time to


assist please contact one of your
child's teachers so that we can con-
tact you. If you don't have a child at
CMS but would still like to volunteer
or make a donation please contact Mr.
Roquette, Mrs. Leyva, or Mrs. Paran-
tha at (863) 983-1530. The students
are our future. Let's encourage them
to stand up for themselves and their
community.

to get some good exercise and
burn off some competitive energy.
The coaches did a great job of
keeping us moving and learning."

Murder

Continued From Page 1
FDLE agent had not released
Information bn d,. .-\Jit c.auiie C-1
death at press Ume on \\VdnAesdaN
There was no visiblee trauma on
the bodies when officials first
arrived at the residence, according
to the FDLE report.
On Tuesday, Wayne Whitaker,
Joey's brother, sat inside his pick-
up truck at the comer of the street,
waiting for news about his family.
In the afternoon, agents had not
yet filled him in any details.
"All I know now is that there are
three dead people in that house,"
said Mr. Whitaker, who met with
family members as they arrived to
the scene. "Everything is just spec-
ulative now."
According to Mr. Whitaker, his
brother lived at the home for many
years with his wife, Carolyn, 53,
'and her mother, Myrtle Lee Cox,
80. Joey suffered from heart trou-
bles, Mr. Whitaker said.
He said his brother's black
truck was missing and said agents
were working on a court order to
request its location from OnStar,
the GPS system installed in the
,truck.
S At shortly after 5:15 p.m., FDLE
'agents and Seminole Police located
the missing vehicle on Big Cypress
Indian Reservation.
The driver led officers in a low-
speed pursuit, before ramming into
two police cruisers. According to
,the FDLE report, as police
demanded the suspect exit the
vehicle, he shot himself in the
head. Authorities retrieved the gun
and arrested the female passenger.
According to the Hendry Coun-
ty Jail, the female suspect, Ruby
Yolande Parker, 31, is charged with
,three counts of felony capital mur-
der.
According to the FDLE report,
the murders were apparently con-
nected to a robbery.


Earlier on Tuesday, at Plattner's
Chevrolet in Belle Glade, Carolyn
Whitaker's co-workers grew con-
cerned when she didn't show up
for work in the morning. Thinking
th ii bT: ', .,iiv, Ii e gro" n ill, they
ted t1o conrtac Carohln b', Nextel'
the hrs- ltev. attempts going unan-
swered, the last attempts going
dead as though the phone was
shut off or the battery died.
Apparently, according to co-
workers, the last contact Joey's
daughters had with him was the
previous night, when they called
and talked to a man who they did
not know. He identified himself as
a former EMS worker and said he
was a friend of the family.
According to Chief Gutshall,
one of the suspects had had a casu-
al relationship with the victims. He
declined to release any more infor-
mation.
According to the Pearl River
County Sheriff, Parker is also regis-
tered as a missing person from
Poplarville, Miss.
Sources say Parker was last seen
with Richard Harker. Harker, 35,
according to Detective Christa Ben-
nett from Mississippi, has a crimi-
nal record, including arrests in
Orange County and Lake County.
He was arrested in 1991 on charges
of second degree murder and was
released in 2002.
Parker's criminal record reveals
only a speeding ticket.
Harker has an address in
Clewiston.
Detective Bennett confirmed
that Parker was the same person
arrested in Florida.
"We're aware she's been
found," Detective Bennett said.
Joy Cardenas, Joey and Car-
olyn's daughter, said her father
knew Harker. They worked togeth-
er hauling trash built up from Hur-
ricane Katrina in Mississippi and
worked together as recently as last
December, she said this week.
She said the family didn't know
much about Harker, and worried
whenJoey called them from Missis-

IdauLK,


sippi in December to say that he
and Harker had had a serious argu-
ment.
"He (Harker) threatened to
shoot everybody," said Ms. Carde-
nas. "He went crazy that night."
That's when Carolyn, Joey's
wife, searched for information
about Harker on the Internet, com-
ing up with a story about Harker
involved in a December 1990 mur-
der case. She said the argument
apparently happened on the
anniversary of the 1990 murder
that Harker was charged with.
She remembers her mother
telling her father, "You better come
home now."
Ms. Cardenas said they went to
Mississippi to bring her father
back, and while the father prepared
to leave the work site, her father
handed her a gun and told her to
shoot Harker if he came close to
them. The man never got close.
"Daddy was scared," said Ms.
Cardenas. "He left the dump trailer
out there."
Ms. Cardenas never met Harker,
and knows only what her father
told her about him.
"My father said he (Harker)
would be calm, collective and
never miss a beat, but then he
would go bonkers for no reason,"
Ms. Cardenas said.
According to Ms. Cardenas,
Harker owed her father money -
thousands of dollars.
Ms. Cardenas said she spoke to
a man at the house the night before
the murders were discovered. She
said her grandmother answered
and gave the phone to him. The
grandmother told Joy that her
father and mother were in the bed-
room withJoey sick.
The man who answered the
phone was well-spoken, and
sounded knowledgeable enough to
make her believe that he was taking
care of her father. He said the fami-
ly was preparing to go out to dinner
as soon asJoey's blood sugar levels
were back to normal.
He told her, "You're the daugh-


Since 1929

ter from Naples, right? You had a
baby six months ago." Information,
she believed, only a close friend of
the family would have.
When Joy told the man she was
coming over to Clewiston to check
on her father, the man said, "No,
he's fine. We're going out to din-
ner."
On Wednesday, Ms. Cardenas
said the family was coping with the
death.
"My father knew a little about
everything," said Ms. Cardenas.
"He did do a little wheeling and
dealing. He could do more with a
pile of s- than with a million dol-
lars," she said, remembering her
father with affection.
Joey needed a heart transplant,
but his diabetic condition present-
ed complications, so the family was
focused on his health.
Ms. Cardenas said her father
had also been in a slightly bad
mood in recent weeks. She doesn't
know now whether that was
because of his poor health.
The man Joy spoke with on
Monday told her that her father
was choked up and emotional.
Ms. Cardenas said she and her
sister and brother stayed in con-
stant communication with their
parents with Ms. Cardenas her-
self sometimes calling five or six
times a day. That's why, Tuesday
morning when they didn't answer
phone calls, the family worried.
"Me and my brother and sister
are the ones left, we're kind of in
bad shape," Ms. Cardenas said.
"They handled everything for us.
They were good people."
Ms. Cardenas had one regret.
She called her mother when
nobody could reach them, leaving
a message with her when Carolyn
didn't answer the phone. "I can't
believe you haven't called us to say
you're okay," she said in the mes-
sage.
"Now I kind of hate that I did
that," she said.

State of the art equipment in the OR


By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center
CLEWISTON With video
technology being the trend in
today's environment, Hendry
Regional Medical Center has pur-
chased several new pieces of equip-
ment to perform upper and lower
endoscopic procedures. One com-
ponent of the new equipment has
video capacities, providing clearer
and more detailed images, which
allow the doctor and the OR staff to
look for abnormalities and also to
take pictures simultaneously.
The two tests, upper and lower
endoscopies, are significantly dif-
ferent, but there has been much
improvement, especially in the
patient's comfort. Depending on
your doctor and on your capability
of being sedated, today these pro-
cedures are as easy as getting a
haircut (well, not quite).
The upper endoscopy consists
of the doctor inserting a tube down
your throat and snaking it through
your upper digestive system;
esophagus, stomach and jejunum.
The procedure might be used to
discover the reason for swallowing
difficulties, nausea, vomiting,
reflux, bleeding, indigestion,
abdominal pain or chest pain.
The lower endoscopy
(colonoscopy) requires that a tube
be placed into the rectum to pro-
duce images of the colon (large

Start school day off right with good breakfast


As South Florida students head
back to school, parents have spent a
lot of time and money getting them
ready, with school clothes and
school supplies.
But some may forget an impor-
tant part of school preparation starts
with nutrition.
Many studies over the years have
shown that children who eat break-
fast do better in school.
Eating a good breakfast gives a
child the fuel his or her body needs
to stay alert and learn.
The link between eating breakfast
and being ready to learn is so docu-
mented that Florida schools offer a
free breakfast program for children of
low income families. According to a
study sponsored by the American
Dairy Council, poverty is only one
reason children may skip breakfast.
According to the study, children of
all socioeconomic levels are at risk
for poor nutrition.
"M \ly cihid,:r,-n I.:cInLiume enough
calories, but have diets high in fat,
sugar and sodium, which put them
at risk for becoming overweight and
for developing chronic diseases as
adults," the report states. "In addi-


A .

with Katrina Elsken

tion, as parents are entering the
workforce in increasing numbers in
the 1990's, many children are on
their own for meals and snacks,
Some children may as a result skip
meals altogether. Others choose their
own meals from only one or two
food groups, which might temporari-
ly appease their hunger but does not
meet their overall nutritional needs.
"Because learning-related effects
of poor nutrition occur before any
visible signs of weight loss or growth
retardation, we cannot assume that a
child of normal weight, or one that is
'chunky,' is well-nourished," the
report continues.
A study conducted in 1991
found that up to 50 percent of chil-


dren from all socioeconomic
groups were affected by hunger-
related problems during any given
school day.
A hungry child may suffer from
stomach pain, headache, muscle
fatigue, nervousness, confusion and
sleepiness.
Children who skip breakfast have
trouble concentrating and staying on
task.
A balanced breakfast will help
keep a child's blood sugar levels
constant until lunchtime. Avoid
cereals that have "sugar" as the first
ingredient listed. This indicates
sugar is the primary ingredient in
the cereal. Sweet rolls or donuts are
all right for an occasional treat, but
should not be the only "breakfast"
the child eats.
Some good choices for breakfast
may include:
Whole grain cereal with fruit
and milk; .
Eggs, toast, juice and milk;
Bagel with cream cheese, fruit
and milk;
Homemade pancakes, bacon,
juice and milk.
Teenagers who are weight con-


scious should be reminded that eat-
ing a healthy breakfast helps you lose
weight, by helping to maintain a con-
stant blood sugar level. Those who
wish to lose weight might consider a
breakfast of yogurt and fruit or a
whole grain muffin with fruit and
milk. It's important for all young
people to include foods from several
of the food groups (dairy, whole
grains, protein, fruits and vegetables)
in their first meal of the day.
Some children have specific
nutritional needs or allergies. Con-
sult with your child's pediatrician
about the best breakfast for you
child.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise routine, consult
your doctor. This is especially impor-
tant if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would other-
wise be considered "healthy."


Drug price Web



site expands


TALLAHASSEE Attorney Gen-
eral Charlie Crist has announced
that even more Floridians will now
be able to take advantage of a Web
site that helps consumers to com-
parison shop and save money on
their prescription drugs.
Mr. Crist said his office has dou-
bled the types of prescription med-
ications listed at the www.MyFlori-
daRx.com website, enabling
consumers to find the best prices
on the 100 most commonly pre-
scribed medications and their
generic equivalents.
The searchable database is
updated monthly to help Floridi-
ans find the most current prices on
the top 100 prescription drugs.
With generic equivalents and dif-
ferent dosage amounts included in
the database, the website now
allows consumers to price some
600 different prescription options.
A few clicks at the website makes it
easy for consumers to determine
which pharmacies close to their
homes offer the best prices on the
medications they need.
Since it was launched in June
2005, the website has attracted an
average of more than 4,100 visitors
per week for a total of 254,203
internet users as of midnight Mon-
day.


"We are pleased to offer even
more help to Floridians to stretch
their health care dollars," said
Attorney General Crist. "More
products mean more savings for
those trying to hold down bills for
prescription drugs."
The website allows consumers
to compare prices for prescription
drugs charged by pharmacies in
their city, and even within their
individual zip code. Helpful infor-
mation is available in both English
and Spanish, and the search results
can be easily viewed and even
downloaded to a spreadsheet so
consumers can review all prices at
their convenience.
MyFloridaRx.com is designed to
assist consumers of all age groups.
Prices on MyFloridaRx.com
reflect what an uninsured con-
sumer, with no discount or supple-
mental plan, would normally pay.
Because the information on the
website is based on data provided
to the state by the pharmacies
themselves, prices shown on the
website are not guaranteed and are
subject to change. The website was
launched in June 2005 with the
assistance of the Agency for Health
Care Administration.

Alzheimer's Disease


mars storm measures


While Floridians stash away
bottled water, canned food and bat-
teries in preparation for the next big
one, there's one thing they may be
forgetting preparing to care for
the elderly and victims of
Alzheimer's disease.
Florida has the largest per capital
elderly population in the country,
with 17.5 percent of Floridians 65
or older in 2005. Additionally,
almost 450,000 Floridians are liv-
ing with Alzheimer's. That
amounts to one out of every 10
Alzheimer's sufferers in the U.S.
Many people with the disease live
at home with loved ones. Care-
givers must take extra precautions
to care for their loved ones in a hur-
ricane.


Hurricane
preparedness tips for
Alzheimer's caregivers
* Store or pack the following:
* Bottled water
* 30-day supply of medications
* Important documents
* Special nutritional items
* Adult diapers
* Flashlights, radio, extra batteries
* ID bracelet
Know where you and your
loved one will stay in advance.
Many shelters cannot adequately
care for people with special needs.
Make sure your temporary accom-
modations can handle any supplies
or equipmentyou must bring.

The experience of being exposed
to people of different cultures is
education in itself. The samee fac-

If elected, what would be your

school system to the best of my
ability: I will make appointments
with administrators and principals
and visit each and every school to
become familiar with the personnel
and physical plant. I will listen to
teachers and support personnel to
see if they can suggest "a better
way". I have come to realize the
importance of listening. I plan to
study the budget and become
familiar with the school finance.

The attorney told the board
that the deputy had relocated to

Previous Political Experience:
Concerned citizen, registered voter.
What motivated you to run for
office: What motivates me is that I
am a mother of three children: Jor-
dan, who is a first grader at East-
side Elementary; Ryan, who is 33
months old; and Jade, who is 12
months old. I have a significant
stake in the elementary, middle,
and high schools of Hendry Coun-
ty since my children will be attend-
ing these schools for the next 18
years. Like the rest of the commu-
nity, my husband and I care very
much about what is happening in
our school system and the direc-
tion in which our children's educa-
ton is headed.
Why do you feel you are the
best candidate: I feel I am the best
candidate for many reasons. Being
a product of this school district, a
former teacher, and a parent, I rec-
ognize the challenges that our
school district faces. In addition, I
have years of business and manage-
rial experience including fiscal and
personnel supervision. I am com-
mitted to working cooperatively
with the school district to ensure
that all children and parents have a
voice in the educational process,
and are treated fairly and equitably.
My time will be centered on serving
all children in our community and
ensuring that no one child is more
important than another. The expe-
rience I have will be of importance
when priorities need to be estab-
lished. If elected I will work as a
dedicated full time school board
member.
If elected, what would be your
first act in office: If elected I would
thank the registered voters and res-
idents of Hendry County for giving
me the opportunity to serve. The
first three issues that I would
review are the budget, the availabil-

while trying to protect the proper-
ty against loiterers, vandalisms, or
people who tried to use the gun
range during closing hours. The
sheriff's department currently
deducts the cost of the mobile
home from the deputy's paycheck.
In response, county officials,
including the county attorney,
Kate English, were concerned
with the proposal though not
completely against the concept -
and whether or not it was okay to


in a small town in Cuba. He then
moved to New Jersey where he
lived in a small town. He said, "I
think you form your character
best in small communities." He
has been in private practice for
seven years. He said there are four
reasons people take this position:
for a pay increase, because there
is power in the position, for
retirement and for public service.
He said, "Taking this position will
actually be a pay decrease for me
so I'm not in it for the money, I
would be lying if I said there was
no power in the position, I am too
young to retire, but the main rea-
son I want the position is to be a
public servant." He said he is not
afraid to say he is a Christian and
feels that everyone has a purpose
and his is to be the next circuit
judge.
*Bob Geltner has 30 years of
practicing law. He started out as a

sent the voters to the best of my
ability. My financial and business
background are a plus and have
helped in making decisions for our
county's second largest business
and employer, the Hendry County
School Board.
Why do you feel you are the
best candidate: I am a third genera-
tion Hendry County citizen and
own property and pay taxes in
Hendry County. I am self-
employed and have operated my
own business for 15 years. The
School Board is big business and I
make decisions on the board like it
was my business. The total budget
for the coming year is over 85 mil-
lions dollars. Since I am self-
employed, I am able to put in the
time it takes to be an effective
board member. I have served the
past 16 years on the Hendry Coun-
ty School Board and during that
time have gained invaluable experi-
ence. I have served three years as
Vice Chairman, three years as
Chairman and currently am nomi-
nated to serve on the Hendry
County Value Adjustment Board
and also be the board representa-
tive on the committee that was
responsible for selecting the archi-
tect for the Clewiston and Labelle
Middle Schools. I have experience
in employee union negotiations
with our teachers and non-instruc-
tional labor unions. I feel that
when the voters have trust in you
and elect you to office, you should
represent them to the best of your
ability. I am active on the board and
do not hesitate to let my opinions
be known. I listen to the concerns
of my constituents and respond to
their inquiries promptly and accu-
rately. I have the experience,
knowledge and time it takes to be
an effective board member. With
my business and financial back-
ground, coupled with my 16 years
school board experience, I feel I
can best represent the children and
taxpayers of Hendry County.
If elected, what would be your

Landscaping can attract birds


By Ed Ayen,
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is another in a series of arti-
cles written about the new area pro-
gram called Florida Yards & Neigh-
borhoods.
Are you spending a lot of money
on birdseed? Are the squirrels eating
more than the birds? Maybe it is time
to think about replacing some of that
hard to care for lawn with native
plants that provide food and shelter
for birds year after year. Like all
wildlife, birds need food, cover and
water. Food should consist of fruits,
seeds and insects. Birds need access
to cover for nesting and shelter from
weather and predators. They also
need a source of water for drinking
and bathing; moving water is very
attractive to birds.
Keep in mind that some of the
south Florida songbirds are migrato-
ry and require food and cover only
during the fall, winter and spring
months. You may want to select
plants that flower during the spring
migrations and attract insects for the
insect eating birds; or select a variety
of plants which offer a consistent
supply of food over an extended peri-
od of time. Try placing plants in
groupings to imitate natural habitats
and provide a variety of plant heights
and densities within these group-
ings.
Fruit eating birds such as the
Cedar Waxwing and the Gray Cat-
bird are attracted to the Marlberry
(Ardisia escoalloniodes); a Florida
native shrub that grows to a height of
15 feet and has fragrant white flow-
ers all year with round purple fruit in
fall and winter. Beautyberry (Calli-
carpa americana) is another shrub
well liked by fruit eater such as Car-
dinals, Mockingbirds, Catbirds and
Thrashers. Beautyberry can grow to
six feet and has light purple flowers
from spring to fall and small purplish
fruit consumed by birds in late win-
ter. Another native fruit tree is the
Red Mulberry (Morus rubra). These


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced that he is
taking steps to pave the way for
alternative fuel production and
use in Florida. He is hosting the
first ever Florida Farm to Fuel
Summit to be held Aug. 30 to
Sept. 1, at the Omni Orlando at
Champions Gate.
The summit will cover current
research initiatives, future produc-
tion and distribution of ethanol
and bio-diesel in Florida, and
incentives/financing opportunities
for the alternative or renewable
fuels industry.
It is attracting high-level par-
ticipants from the federal and
state government, as well as rep-
resentatives of private industry
who will be a driving force in
achieving a major alternative fuels
program. Keynote speakers
include Assistant Secretary for
Energy Efficiency and Renewable
Energy, Alexander Karsner; USDA
Under Secretary for Research -
Education and Economics, Gale
Buchanan; State Senator Lee Con-
stantine and State Representative


Adam Hasner. The program will
also feature a special presentation
on Brazil's effort at achieving
petroleum independence.
The summit is a component of
Bronson's ambitious "Farm to
Fuel" initiative a comprehensive
effort to promote alternative ener-
gy and help position Florida as a
leader in the production of bio-
fuels.
"Since the passage of the Energy
Policy Act of 2005, announcement
of the President's Advanced Energy
Initiative and passage of Florida's
Energy Act, the interest in renew-
able energy has never been
greater," Bronson said.
"Our Farm to Fuel Summit is
just one of many ways that we are
trying to bring the necessary par-


ties and stakeholders together to
discuss using the state's renewable
resources to reduce our dependen-
cy on foreign oil and other non-
renewable sources of energy. Our
ultimate goal is to enhance the'
market for, and promote the pro-
duction and distribution of renew-
able energy from Florida-grown
crops, agricultural wastes and
residues, and other biomass, stated
Commissioner Bronson.
Commissioner Bronson stated
that as fuel prices continue to sky-
rocket, all Florida citizens should be
taking an interest in and supporting
alternative fuels development.

For grain loving birds such as Cardinals you will still want a bird feeder.


same fruit eating birds are attracted
to the Laurel Oak (Quercus laurifo-
lia) and Live Oak (Quercus virgini-
ana) trees. The Cabbage Palm (Sabel
palmetto), the Florida state tree, has
a fruit that is well liked by Black-
birds, Blue Jays, Mockingbirds and
Robins. Hummingbirds, a nectar
bird, like Firebush (Hamelia patens)
shrubs which has orange/red flowers
year around. Another good shrub for
Hummingbirds, Orioles and
Buntings is the Shrimp Plant (Justi-
cia brandegeana); it grows to about
five feet and has white flowers in the
summer.


For the grain loving birds such as
Cardinals, Indigo Buntings and
House Finches you will still want a
bird feeder. We have a platform feed-
er and a regular hanging type feeder
in our yard and stock them with
hulled sunflower seeds to minimize
the mess on the ground. The majori-
ty of birds feeding now are Cardinals,
Red-bellied Woodpeckers, ScrubJays
and White-winged Doves.
For more information on land-
scaping to attract birds stop by the
extension service office in your coun-
ty.
The Florida Yards and Neighbor-


hoods program is being implement-
ed through your local county exten-
sion service in Highlands, Okee-
chobee and Glades County and is
partially funded from Clean Water
Act Section 319 funding from the U.
S. EPA through the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection.
Ed Ayen is available to address
interested groups such as homeown-
ers associations, voluntary organiza-
tions and clubs. For further informa-
tion he can be reached by calling the

office. Phone: (863)402-6540 or

Master Gardeners help homeowners


By Dan Culbert

Master Gardeners are Exten-
sion-trained volunteers who can
answer many questions about
your home and garden. They are
our office's "life-lines", and allow
agents to answer harder horticul-
tural questions, pres.e other
programs and help solve many
other issues.
Our trained volunteers are well
equipped to handle most of the
requests that come to our office.
They have received initial training
in more than 55 hours of classroom
instruction in horticulture. Each
year they take additional training to
keep them current. Sometimes they
bring a lifetime of their own gar-
dening knowledge and experiences
to their job. As volunteers, they can
spend as much time as is necessary
to give homeowners information to
solve their problem.
And we desperately need a few
more in the next year.
Got a gardening
question?
People contacting our office can
interact with Master Gardeners.
We currently offer free assistance
at our county Extension office.
These special volunteers work in
our office on Tuesday afternoons
during a two-three hour period.
Master Gardeners handle the calls
by telephone, or sometimes by e-
mail, and meet office visitors that
arrive with soil samples or pest-
infested samples from their
homes. After questioning, a diag-
nosis is made, and management


suggestions are offered.
Extension is a source of
research-based fact sheets and
bulletins that backup the Master
Gardener advice. Thousands of
different bulletins are available
free from our office. Since our
space for storing these documents
is limited; ...1Llrn"r-., often con-
sult our Extension website,
http://SolutionsForYourLife.com.
They print a copy for the visitor or
mail it out to the caller.
Master Gardeners may suggest
that a soil pH test would help solve
the visitor's problem. They are
trained on how to operate a soil pH
meter and decide if the results con-
tribute to the problem. And with a
camera, a photo can be sent on our
Digital Diagnostic Information Sys-
tem (DDIS) to University special-
ists for rapid response. Thanks to
our County Commission, these
services are currently offered free of
charge to county residents.
If more extensive diagnosis is
needed, we can refer the problem
to several UF/IFAS laboratories that
can identify the actual pests. Sub-
mission forms, bags and boxes to
send soil or water samples for more
in-depth analysis are available free
at our office. However, the lab serv-
ices require a fee, which is sent
with the sample to the UF labs.
As the community grows, the
number of questions will rise.
Extension's ability to reach more of
these needs will depend on increas-
ing the number of hours our volun-
teers are in the office. To expand
these clinic hours, we need more
volunteers to step up and help.


Friendly
Fair exh
for kids


landscapes,
ibits and fun


Master Gardeners can also help
present seminars on Florida
Friendly landscaping. As part of the
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
program, volunteers carry the des-
ignation of Florida Yard Advisor.
Some of our volunteers are ready to
help evaluate yards that practice
these best management tech-
niques. They can designate your
yard as Florida-friendly. Other vol-
unteers may appear at community
events to answer gardening ques-
tions and let the public know
about other Extension services.
This winter and spring our
office has been asked to assist the
Board of Directors of the Okee-
chobee County Fair. It is our hope
to see a large number of home gar-
deners bring in samples of their
own home-grown vegetables at the
county's first ever County Fair.
Master Gardeners will be needed to
answer lots of public questions
before the Fair. They will also be
on-hand to help organize and set
up several hundred plates of pro-
duce that will be judged and dis-
played to the general public. The
Fair is tentatively scheduled for
March 9-18, 2007.
Master Gardeners are also need-
ed to start Junior Master Gardener
groups. This is the name for 4-H
Clubs that help our youth learn how
to grow vegetables, fruits or orna-
mentals. A core of adult Master Gar-
deners will work with kids that will
become 4-H'ers. They will learn
about the joys of plants and garden-


ing. We'd like to show youth how to
make the best better by building
beautiful landscapes and learning
about plants.
An important part of the JMG
program is encouraging young peo-
ple to share their knowledge with the
community. With a little help, expect
to grow some new helpers and put
some unique projects on display at
places like nursing homes, science
fairs and community festivals.
Wanted: green thumbs!
Through this Extension training
program, current Master Gardeners
have begun to share their love of
horticulture with others. Our pro-
gram is relatively new, but our cur-
rent corps of seven volunteers have
provided over 1,000 hours of assis-
tance to our county. This year we
looked back and noticed that one
county Master Gardener has even
been at it for 10 years.
If any of the above activities
sound interesting to you, consider
becoming a Florida Master Gardener
yourself. A person's desire to learn
and share is more important among
potential Master Gardeners than cur-
rent knowledge and experience. Give
it some thought or maybe you can
nominate someone else if you aren't
able to volunteer.

Fisheating Creek has long history


By MaiyAnn Morris
The name, "Fisheating Creek"
itself is a wonder. It comes from the
Creek native American language.
The word, "Thlothlopopka-hatch-
ce" means "the creek where fish are
eaten.
The first known settlement
along the banks of Fisheating
Creek is dated between 1000 and
500 BC. The early inhabitants,
known as the Belle Glade people,
began building mounds and other
earthworks and lived by netting
fish and harvesting turtles, snakes,
and alligators. According to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, University of Florida
archeologist Jerald Milanich, who
worked on the area as a student in
the 1960s, perforations found on
turtle shells indicate turtles were
tethered to be eaten as needed.
But the creek was more than a
source of food and water. It was
also a canoe highway leading to
Lake Okeechobee and its resources
to the east and other settlements to
the west.
Historic accounts include story
that during the Second Seminole
War (1835-1842), a cabbage palm
fortification named Fort Center
for Lt. J.P Center was located on
Fisheating Creek. Oscen
Tustenuggee, who had organized
many war parties, and his two
bothers, Micco Tustenuggee and
Old Tustenuggee, and their wives
lived in villages along the creek.
In 1842, George Henry Preble
of the U.S. Navy described the diffi-
culties of a trip up Fisheating Creek
in a 30-foot cypress dugout canoe
named "Susan" after his sweet-
heart: "This stream is very tortu-
ous, and sometimes swells into a
river, and then dwindles into a
brook," he wrote.
According to "William B. Hook-
er, Cattle King," by Kyle Van Land-
ingham,"By the mid-1850s
(William B.) Hooker's cows ranged
over present-day Hillsborough,
Manatee, Polk, Highlands, Glades,
Hendry and Charlotte counties.
Hooker's Prairie, located south of
present day Mulberry, appeared in
records as early as 1849. Highlands
Hammock, now a state park, was
originally known as Hooker Ham-
mock and he had cattle pens at a
crossing on Fisheating Creek near
present-day Venus. Cattle were
shipped from Hooker's Pens at a
point on the north side of the lower
Manatee River known today as
Hooker's Point. The other, more
famous Hooker's Podikt-, which
projects into Tampa Bay was also a
shipping point for his cattle, as well
as one of his properties."
"Pioneers in Palmdale," the
story of the Wadlow family settling
in Palmdale in the 1930s states:
"Each Sunday everybody got
together in a couple of skeeter
trucks and went to some pretty
place on Fisheating Creek to fish.
We took such food as cabbages,
potatoes, biscuits and syrup.
"The fellows would kill rabbits,
turkeys, ducks, squirrels, quail,
and fish until we had enough for
the crowd. One man who worked
at the coaling station on the rail-
road always brought the coffee and
hauled some of the people in his
little truck. After we finished eat-
ing, we always divided up every-
thing that was left. That was the
only good meal for some of the
folks until the next Sunday."
Eventually the land came to be
owned by the Lykes family, a pow-
erful ranching group. For genera-

tions, local people had used the
creek as their own; picnicking,
swimming, fishing along its beauti-
ful, 40 miles length. But this was
not to be. The Lykes family, who
owned the land toppled ancient
cypress trees across the water and
gates "clanged shut" blocking the
creek from the people of Glades
county.
"There's no doubt that Fisheat-
ing Creek is the center of the collec-
tive psyche of the people in the
county as far back as anybody can
remember," said Assistant Attorney


General David Guest, quoted in a
1990 article in the Miami Herald.
"Losing the creek case," said
Attorney General Bob Butterworth,
"would cripple the state's ability to
defend its other waterways from
other corporate claimants. Fisheat-
ing Creek is no more a local prob-
lem," he says, "than Ted Bundywas
a local problem."
The law that applied was an
ancient rule. Water bodies capable
of being used for a useful public
purpose were recognized and pro-
tected as public property by the
laws of Spain, England and even
ancient Rome. But that didn't
apply to the land under the water.
Hence, you can boat on a water
way, but not get out onto the bank
if the bank is private property,
according to the Florida Bar Associ-
ation.
The state of Florida, the Federal
government, and others waged a
10-year battle with the Lykes family
to keep the creek open for the peo-
ple.


On February 19, 1998, Circuit
Court Judge Charles Carlton ruled
that Fisheating Creek belonged to
the people of Florida, although the
ordinary high water line, which is
used to determine the boundary
between public lands and private
lands, had not been determined.
Lykes Brothers appealed the deci-
sion. To put an end to litigation,
the parties agreed to a settlement
calling for the state of Florida to
purchase a corridor along the creek
under the auspices of the Conser-
vation and Recreation Lands
(CARL) Program using funds
appropriated by the Florida Forever
Act. This land (18,272 acres)
became Fisheating Creek Water
Management Area. Today, Fisheat-
ing Creek is one of the prime recre-
ation spots in all of Florida.
Some information for this arti-
cle came from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion.

WASHINGTON The Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA) has awarded six
new Individual Assistance Techni-
cal Assistance Contracts (IA-TAC)
for program and Disaster Recovery
Center support, temporary hous-
ing group site design and construc-
tion, and for the hauling and
installing of temporary housing
units for future disasters.
The (six) contracts awarded are
for a two year period with a con-
tract ceiling of $250 million each.
Task orders issued (in response to a
disaster) under contracts will
require the contractors to utilize
local firms to the maximum extent
practical for additional subcon-
tracting opportunities. The prime
contractors receiving awards are
(details for each contract is avail-
able at www.fedbizops.com: Shaw
Environmental & Infrastructure,
Fluor Enterprises, Inc., Partnership
for Temporary Housing, Disaster
Solution Alliance, Bechtel National
and CH2M Hill.
"The awarding of these con-
tracts has been accomplished
through a full and open process,
and the awards have been based on


the best value for the American tax-
payer," said FEMA Director David
Paulison. "The awarding of these
contracts will go a long way toward
ensuring the federal government is
prepared and can act quickly in
responding to the temporary hous-
ing needs of disaster victims any-
where across the country."
The proposals were evaluated to
determine the level of understand-
ing of the work to be performed,
technical approach, potential for
completing the work as specified in
the solicitation, and price/cost rea-
sonableness. The Request for Pro-
posal was posted on the Federal
Business Opportunities Web page,
and specific details on the Request
for Proposal can be found at
www.fedbizops.com.
Some of the work to be tasked
out to the contractors includes:
Site assessment for potential
group sites related to placement of
temporary housing;
Site inspections for potential
placement of temporary housing
on personal property;
Installation of temporary
housing units and staging area sup-
port; Group site design for building
and placement of temporary hous-


ing units; General construction
services; and Facility management.
During the 2005 hurricane sea-
son, the current IA-TAC contrac-
tors played an important role in
supporting delivery of the Individ-
ual Assistance Program aid to dis-
aster victims. When the current
contracts are complete, the con-
tractors will have installed nearly
153,000 temporary housing units.
The firms continue to support the
Gulf Coast Housing mission to
complete the installation of tempo-
rary housing and the transition of
the maintenance and deactivation
of units and group sites to mostly
local firms. Once this work is
accomplished, the current IA-TAC
contracts will be closed out, with
future disasters being supported by
the new IA-TACs.
FEMA manages federal
response and recovery efforts fol-
lowing any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitigation
activities, works with state and
local emergency managers, and
manages the National Flood Insur-
ance Program. FEMA became part
of the U.S. Department of Home-
land Security on March 1, 2003.

Self sacrifice can



bring blessings


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
One day while 7-year-old Mark
was sitting at his desk in the class-
room, he felt something warm and
looked down to
see the front of
his pants wet,
and a puddle at
his feet on the
floor. He could
not believe it
was happening
to him. Immedi-




classmates.
He immediately buriedhis head
in his hands and prayed, "God I
need help now!" He heard someone
approaching him and looked up to
see Susie coming in his direction
with a big gold fish bowl in her
hands. It was Susie's day to clean the
fish bowl. "Oh no, not Susie!" She
would see and he would never be
able to speak to her again.
But then it happened! Just as she
got to-his desk Susie dumped the
entire bowl of water, fish and all into
Mark's lap.
The teacher jumped to Mark's
rescue. Scurried him away to the
boiler room, gave him a pair of gym
shorts to wear, hung his trousers on
the boiler to dry, and put her arm
around him lavishing him with sym-
pathy and understanding. When
they returned to the class room all
the children were busy with paper
towels drying up the floor and
Mark's books and scolding little
Susie for her clumsiness. When
Susie tried to help, the teacher said,
"Susie, I think you have done
enough for one day."
The acceptance and sympathy
felt so good to Mark that he failed to
realize how rejected Susie felt by the
condemnation of his classmates.
This lasted the rest of the day, until
they were all out front waiting for
rides home.
It was then Mark saw the pain in
Susie's eyes as she stood all alone,


while students from other classes
heard about the incident for the first
time and crowded around Mark lav-
ishing more understanding.
Mark went over to Susie, and
whispered, "Susie, you saw, you
knew didn't you? You dumped that
water on me on purpose didn'tyou?"
Susie replied, "Mark, I saw you lay
your head on your desk. I wet my
pants once too."
"Greater love has no one than
this, that he lay down his life for his
friends." (John 15:13) I have experi-
enced this first hand. One of my
most memorable experiences came
in my younger informative years. I
couldn't tell you how embarrassing it
was when one of my friend's moth-
ers called me a bull in a china shop
when I accidentally broke a piece off
of a model airplane that my friend
and I were putting together. A short
time later, I accidentally dropped a
large bowl of popcorn trying to catch
a glass of water I had tipped over. I
was embarrassed beyond belief.
Then came the question I knew
would bring me more embarrass-
ment, "What happened in here?
Who made this mess?"
Before I could answer, my friend
spoke up, "You know me!" He was
the Susie to my Mark. He took the
shame so I would not have to. There
were not words adequate enough to
express my gratitude and relief.
Over the years, I have pledged
that I would try my best to do the
same for those around me when
opportunity presented itself. I have
learned that the best way to be of
service is often very simple it's
those little, quiet, often unnoticed.
acts of kindness that we choose to do
on a daily basis that really make a dif-
ference.
Something else I've learned:
"Giving is its own reward." When we
give, we also receive. In fact, what we
receive is directly proportional to
what we give. As we give more freely
of ourselves in our own unique ways,
we will experience more blessings
than we ever thought possible.
Everyone wins, especially us.

this?" and explain that they had

To the child Jesus, it wasn't as big

hear much
about Jesus'
adventures for
another 15
years, but I'd
suspect they Samuel S.
kept a better Thomas
eye on Him.


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are Biblical stories about
things that are lost: lost sheep, or
lost coins or a lost son (Luke 15).
The parables all tell us that great
joy comes when what was lost is
[bund again; more joy about find-
ing what was lost than being thank-
ful that the other sheep or coins, or
children are still around and were
never lost.
It is a feeling which we all know.
I've helped people many times who
have come to me and said "I've lost
my..." and then we'd begin to
search. I remember when I was
growing up and our dog ran away.
We searched and searched; wor-
ried, thought about what we were
going to do when we got our hands
on him once again, and then decid-
ed that we'd be thankful that
was all. We were blessed; the dog
came home and we watched him a
whole lot better alter that.
Coins or sheep don't seem to
get upset when they wander off;
children don't always get upset,
but parents do. We hear about
Jesus being lost from His family
when He was 12 and had gone up
with His parents to the temple
(Luke 2:41 f) His parents find him
after three days (!) and ask Him
"Son, why have you treated us like


"Lost stories" seem to capture
our attention because they shake
up some of the things we take for
granted. I take for granted that my
glasses will be where I thought I
left them the night before as I get
up in the morning. I take for grant-
ed that our dog will be there to
greet me when I get home. I take
for granted that the money I bud-
geted for the week will still be in
my wallet to take me through.

Every once and awhile, I will mis-
lay my keys or a paper I needed
with some notes for an upcoming
presentation; then the search
begins and the anxieties go up.
Sometimes there is a message to
myself in what is going on when I
lose something. It may be some-
thing like "Pay better attention" or
"You're not getting enough sleep"
or "Realize how sacred other
beings are to you when they're in
your life and you've taken them for
granted." In fact, it may not be just
about things being "lost" but per-
haps a lost connection when I've
tried to call someone and couldn't
get through when I worried about
them. It may be about a person
who was once close in my life and
time has made the contacts fewer
and fewer over the years. It may be
about a promise I made to myself
to "keep in touch" and that I let
slip because of other, more imme-
diate priorities.
I can empathize with all of those
people in the Bible who have lost
their coins or sheep or children. I


have also shared their joy when
something or someone is found
once more. I've learned from it to
make a mental note to myself now
and again to really go and visit the
person that I told "I'll stop by
sometime" or to call on the individ-
ual that told me to "drop by some-
time" even if it was said more in the
sense of being polite than really
serious about it. It has taught me
that things or people don't really
have to be lost to be sacred; and
that joy I know when I've found the
lost keys or glasses or the dog
returns home can still be mine
when I appreciate the everyday
things by remembering how special
they really are in my life. I really
don't need to lose them. I only
have to take time to stop and savor
that special relationship we have,
then say "Thank you, Lord" for
putting them into my life, entrust-
ing them to my care, giving or even
loaning them to me for a time while
we're here together.

Help available for aquaculture industries


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
Monday announced that the state is
receiving nearly $3.7 million in fed-
eral funds to assist aquaculture
operations that sustained damages
from the 2005 hurricanes.
The money, which is Florida's
share of a larger allocation provided
earlier this year by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture for a number of
Gulf states, will be available to aqua-
culture businesses in 36 counties
that were impacted by the storms.


"I'm encouraged by the rebuild-
ing process that already is under
way in the industry, and this assis-
tance will provide additional
momentum for that effort," Mr.
Bronson said.
Florida's nearly $100 million
aquaculture industry includes tropi-
cal fish, clams, shrimp, food fish,
alligators, aquatic plants, live rock,
bait fish and other items. The hurri-
canes' storm surge damaged clam
and live rock operations while
inland growers sustained damages
to greenhouses, fish tanks and other


infrastructure, as well as products,
as a result of high winds and loss of
electricity.
To qualify for assistance under
the program, affected parties must
meet the following requirements:
Be an aquaculture facility in an
eligible county.

EAA farmers reducing phosphorus in runoff


For the eleventh consecutive
year, water flowing out of the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area (EAA)
showed significant improvement
in phosphorus reductions, thanks
to a highly successful program of
Best Management Practices.
Results for the 2006 monitor-
ing period show that phosphorus
reductions in the 500,000-acre
farming region, south of Lake
Okeechobee were again better
than the amount required by law.
Phosphorus can harm the Ever-
glades ecosystem when stormwa-
ter runoff carries excess amounts
into the protected wetlands. To


meet the requirements of Florida's
Everglades Forever Act, the
amount of phosphorus leaving the
EAA must be 25 percent less than
before phosphorus-reduction
efforts started. This has been
achieved-and surpassed-every
year since the law took effect more
than a decade ago. Data for the
2006 annual monitoring period
show that a 44-percent phospho-
rus reduction was achieved this
year. Annual reductions for the
previous ten years have ranged
from 34 to 73 percent.
"This track record is impres-
sive, especially considering the


increased phosphorus coming
from Lake Okeechobee in irriga-
tion water," said Kevin McCarty,
chairman of the South Florida
Water Management District Gov-
erning Board. "Florida's growers
continue to prove that agriculture
and the environment can thrive
side-by-side. Their achievements
are setting an example throughout
the state."
Phosphorus reductions are
largely achieved through Best
Management Practices, or BMPs.
BMPs are improved ways of farm-
ing, ranching, landscaping, irrigat-
ing and managing animal waste -


all with the goal of reducing envi-
ronmental harm. In the EAA, the
most commonly used BMPs are
improved fertilizer application,
improved stormwater pumping
practices and erosion controls to
prevent runoff of phosphorus-
laden soils.
When measured in actual
mass, 118 tons of phosphorus
were prevented this year from
entering the regional canal system,
which sends water into the Ever-
glades.
Water leaving the EAA receives
additional treatment in one of sev-
eral Stormwater Treatment Areas


(STAs) before entering the Ever-
glades. These constructed wet-
lands are filled with native plants
and use "green" technology to fur-
ther reduce phosphorus levels.
More than 41,000 acres of land
south of Lake Okeechobee have
been converted to STAs, and an
additional 18,000 acres will be
added by 2010. Expansion of the
STAs is part of the state's Acceler8
initiative to expedite critical
restoration projects, providing for
environmental benefits as soon as
possible. Project details are avail-
able at www.evergladesnow.org.


County Farm Bureaus invited to share successful programs


GAINESVILLE Florida Farm
Bureau Federation is on the look-
out for inventive and successful
ideas and activities developed by
county Farm Bureaus. Applica-
tions will be accepted through
Sept. 1, for the 2006 Florida Farm
Bureau County Idea Exchange.
The programs recognize unique
and resourceful ways county Farm


Bureaus address the challenges the
face on their farms and ranches
and in their communities.
Ten county Farm Bureaus will
present their innovative, action-ori-
ented activities during the Florida
Farm Bureau Annual Meeting Oct.
11-13, 2006 at the Hilton Ocean-
front Resort in Daytona Beach. The
five program categories are: Educa-


& ilk


tion and Ag Promotion, Leadership
Promotion, Member Services, Poli-
cy Implementation and Public Rela-
tions and information.
Winning counties will receive
$250 from the Florida Farm Bureau
and Florida Farm Bureau will sub-
mit their entries in the 2006 Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Federation Coun-
ty Activities of Excellence program.


Programs selected by AFBF will
receive up to $2,000 to put toward
the cost of exhibiting their winning
activities at the AFBF annual meet-
ing Jan. 7-10, 2007 at Salt Lake
City, Utah.
There are Farm Bureaus repre-
senting 64 counties in Florida,
where agriculture comprises a sta-
ble, vital leg of Florida's economy,


rivaling the tourism industry in eco-
nomic importance. Headquartered
in Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, non-profit agricultur-
al organization and is not associat-
ed with any arm of the government.
More information about Florida
Farm Bureau is available on the
organization's website,

SFWMD

receives

recognition
The Government Finance
Officers Association of the Unit-
ed States and Canada (GFOA)
has awarded the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) with its Distinguished
Budget Presentation Award for
fiscal year 2006. GFOA reviewers
rated the District as outstanding
in financial policies, long-term
goals and objectives, and impact
on capital improvements related
to the agency's $1.1 billion oper-
ating budget.
"As long-time stewards of
public funds, we are committed
to the highest standards in our
budgeting process," said Kevin
McCarty, chairman of the
SFWMD Governing Board.
"Recognition by this organiza-
tion acknowledges our responsi-
ble budgeting and accounting
practices."
To receive the award, the th
SFWMD met nationally recog-
nized guidelines for effective
budget presentation, assessing
how well the budget serves as a
policy document, a financial
plan, an operations guide and a
communications tool.
This is the 14th time the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has received the
award, serving as an example for
other governments throughout
the country for improving the
quality of budgeting.
The Government Finance
Officers Association is a national,
nonprofit professional associa-
tion based in Washington, D.C.,
serving 16,000 government
finance professionals throughout
North America. It creates guide-
lines for best practices in govern-
ment budgeting and accounting,

Florida takes top honors at seafood cook-off contest


TALLAHASSEE A recipe fea-
turing some of Florida's all-time
favorites- snapper, shrimp, tropical
fruit and citrus won out over sub-
missions by 20 other premier chefs
from around the country to capture
top honors at the Great American
Seafood Cook-Off held Aug. 6, in
New Orleans.
Justin Timineri, executive chef for
the Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services, pre-
pared the winning entree during the
competition with assistance from
Joshua Butler, executive chef to Gov-
ernorJeb Bush.
Florida Agriculture Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson said winning
this prestigious national competition
is a reflection on the freshness and
quality of Florida ingredients, as well
as the creativity of the department's
executive chef
"Delicious fresh Florida seafood
is a superb start to any dish," Bron-
son said. "Add in our chef's innova-
tive culinary approach, and you've
got a winning combination. We're
extremely pleased that the judges
selected Florida's entry over such
tough competition from around the
country."
All the participating chefs were
given two hours from preparation to
the presentation of the final dish.
Chef Justin Timineri's "Crispy Pan
Seared Florida Snapper with Passion
Fruit Cream and Florida Citrus Salad
with Florida Gulf Shrimp and Spicy


Submitted photo/Florida Agriculture
Chef Justin Timineri teamed with Chef Josh Butler took the top award in the Great American
Seafood Cook-off with their 'Florida Fresh' Crispy Pan Seared Florida Snapper with Passion
Fruit Cream and Florida Citrus Salad with Florida Gulf Shrimp and Spicy Green Mango Jam."
Gov. Jeb Bush and Agriculture Commissioner, Charles H. Bronson presented the award.


Green Mango Jam" was chosen by a
panel of six judges as the best new
domestic seafood dish that reflected
the chef's home state.


The panel of judges included two
James Beard Award-winning chefs,
Susan Spicer of Bayona Restaurant in
New Orleans, and Shawn McClain of


Spring Restaurant in Chicago.
Rounding out the panel were Donna
Florio, senior food writer, Southern
Living Magazine; Julia Rutland, sen-


ior editor, Coastal Living Magazine;
Bill Hogarth, director, National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Adminis-
tration; and John Connelly, presi-
dent, National Fisheries Institute.
Chef Justin Timineri was spon-
sored by the Gulf and South Atlantic
Fisheries Foundation and the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services through its Bureau of
Seafood and Aquaculture Marketing.
"Winning this cook-off is
extremely exciting," said Chef
Timineri. "It was a team effort and I
could not have done withoutJosh."
As executive chef, Timineri devel-
ops new ways to prepare meals using
Florida ingredients. As part of the
"Fresh from Florida" marketing cam-
paign, Timineri conducts cooking
demonstrations and other promo-
tions to help increase consumer
awareness of the variety and whole-
someness of Florida agricultural
products.
In addition to Florida, the follow-
ing states were represented at the
Great American Seafood Cook-Off:
Alabama, Alaska, California, Col-
orado, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Maryland, Massachu-
setts, Michigan, Mississippi, Mis-
souri, New York, North Carolina,
Oregon, Texas and Washington.
The event, held at the Ernest N.
Morial Convention Center, was
sponsored by the National Oceanic
and Atmospheric Administration
(NOAA) Fisheries, the Louisiana


Kids belong in the kitchen, learning to cook


The kitchen is the perfect place
to be together with your children.
This is where the meals are made
and, if your dining table is in the
same room, it's where they're
eaten too. Giving children the
opportunity to learn how to cook
and prepare meals has amazing
side effects. Believe it or not, you'll
even find your picky kids are more
willing to try something they've
made themselves.
When my son was 7 years old,
he still wouldn't eat salad. I had
my children rotating through the
kitchen every other day as my
kitchen helpers, and when it
became his day again, I decided it
was time for him .to make the
salad. I showed him how to wash
the lettuce and spin it (we have a
salad spinner), I showed him how
to cut veggies (yes, they can do it


-_ The Dinner
Diva

S-Ely


with close supervision) and I
showed him how to toss the salad
with the dressing once it was time
to serve it.
Sitting down at the table that
night, my very proud son asked
everyone if they liked HIS salad
about 10 times. He ate two servings
himself and from that day forward,
he's never been picky when it
comes to salads. I call it "hands on


nutrition". This type of involve-
ment helps to mold good habits
and gives children an opportunity
to exercise some personal responsi-
bility over the food they consume -
a big boon to their own personal
nutrition when they go off to
school and need to make decisions
for themselves.
As many of you know, I have a
website called Saving Dinner where
I provide weekly menus, recipes
and shopping lists for my sub-
scribers. I can't tell you how many
times I've received emails from
subscribers needing assistance
with some very basic cooking skills
because they've never been taught
how to cook. Or other ones email-
ing me and telling me how good
they feel about themselves because
they're starting to get how to put a
meal together. It is so important


that we equip our children with the
skills they'll need for life. Mother-
hood is the only job I know of that
you work hard to work yourself out
of a job. We want to see our chil-
dren succeed and knowing how to
cook is a basic life skill-it's essen-
tial.
So bring the kids into the
kitchen this week-even the littlest
ones can be good helpers. Make
being together in the kitchen a part
of your life together as a family.
Think of the memories you'll make.
And to get you started, here is a
great family recipe that kids will
love helping you to make:
Crunchy Honey Mustard Chick-
en Fingers
Serves 4 hungry kids double
up for the rest of the family.
4 small, boneless skinless
chicken breast halves


1/4 cup honey, warmed
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 cup corn flakes, crushed
Preheat oven to 425. Lightly
grease a cookie sheet
In a small bowl, mix Dijon and
warmed honey together till well
mixed. Put crushed corn flakes in a
separate bowl.
Slice chicken into 3/4 inch
strips. Dip in honey mustard mix.
Then roll in crushed corn flakes
and put on cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or
until done.
