'Big Water, Big Trouble'


CLEWISTON The last few
!months have secn a 1nuLI1-ber of
public meetings held highlight-
ing the problems with the health
of the Lake Okeechobee and the
integrity of the Iloover Dike sur-
rounding the lake. All of these
public meetings have been very
well attended as the level of con-
cern remains high.
Much of the concern stems
from Ihe constant stale of cliange
of many of the submitted plans.
The confusion that resultedI from
those changes had led to mote


tension between the inland areas
and those on each coast.
Florida Gulf Coast University
in Ft. Myers took an interest in the
issue and has produced a series
of programs airing on their pub-
lic broadcasting station that
details some of the problems
with the lake, and what may or
may not have been the causes of
the current problems.
The first airing of the program
called "Big Water, Big Trouble"
had its first airing Aug. 10 12
and will be re-aired Sept. 8-10.


FGCU is working with the
Clewiston Chamber of Com-
merce and the City of Clewiston
to hold a public viewing of the
half-hour program. Following the
viewing of the program WGCU
will moderate a panel discussion
of those involved and a public
comments forum. The public air-
ing of the program is set for Sun-
day, Sept. 10 from 3 to 5 p.m. at
the John Boy Auditorium.
"There are actually a couple
of reasons for the public view-
ing" said Sean Moore, executive


director for the Clewiston Cham-
ber. "Unless you have a satellite
dish you are not able to watch
the program. The local cable sys-
tem shows the PBS station from
the east coast so a lot of people
are going to miss seeing the
show. The second reason is that
it keeps everything fresh in peo-
ple's minds as they prepare to
ask questions or make com-
ments immediately following the
viewing."
Mr. Moore said he has seen
the program and feels it gives a

"They did not place blame on

911 issue

By Nicole Cuny
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY In the
face of an emergency, most peo-
ple call 9-1-1 for help. But what if
you are in the middle of
nowhere? Who do you call for
help?
Angel Vega recalled an inci-
dent in July concerning a brush
fire on 15th Street, west of
Wheeler Road, located at the
southwestern part of the county.
After seeing the fire, Mr. Vega
called 9-1-1 to get emergency
services out to the area to put
out the fire, he told.commission-
ers at a recent Hendry County
meeting.
Mr. Vega said the person at
the other end of the line told him
that 9-1-1 was for emergencies
only and instructed him to call
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment for help.
Calling the Clewiston Police
Department was no help to him
either the dispatcher did not
know where he was located.
The police department does not
have jurisdiction over his area.
After rounds of telephone
calls to various fire departments,
the nearby fire department on
Joel Boulevard finally came to
put out the brush fire.
It underscored the impor-
tance of updating the informa-
tion on Wheeler Road on the 9-
1-1 data system used in
responding to emergencies, Mr.
Vega said.
In the wake of the incident,
the sheriff's office has met with
the Lehigh Acres Fire Rescue
department.
The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office has a mutual agreement
with Lehigh Acres Fire Rescue
for fire emergencies and EMS, an
agreement which has been in
effect since June of 2005.
After being reminded of.this
agreement, Lehigh Acres agreed

Community News in Brief

INI/Florida Archives


in a field near


Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore

Greetings! Looking back at
last week's column, I realized
that I had left out an important
fact regarding our annual dinner.
We are running out of time for
entries and suggestions in the
very first "Business of the Year"
category. We have gotten a lot of
great entries and several have
been very well thought out and
had a lot of time put into them. If
there is a business that you
would like to submit, we have
extended our entry deadline to
Sept. 5, giving you one additional
week. At our monthly chamber
meeting Sept. 12, the board of
directors will discuss and select
the "best of the best".
I can honestly say that I am
glad I do not get a vote on this
matter, because there are way
too many entries that are deserv-
ing of the inaugural award. My
job is to present the case for each
business, grab my bag of pop-
corn and watch the action! Don't
forget, Tuesday, Sept. 5, is the
deadline date so get those nomi-
nations in now.
The Chamber of Commerce
has also decided to step in and try
to save an event that was in dan-
ger of not being held this year.
The annual arts and crafts fair tra-
ditionally done by the Clewiston
BPW was cancelled last year
since we had a bit of a wind relat-
ed issue, and due to circum-
stances beyond their control was
not scheduled to make its' return
this year. We thought the event
was too important to be missed
two consecutive years and asked
the BPW if they would mind our
stepping in. They were very
understanding and have agreed to
serve as consultants on the proj-
ect should we have any ques-
tions. I have always believed that
you use all the resources at your
disposal to do the best job you


can. If you have a group that has
done an event for years and offer-
ing to answer any questions you
may have- you ask! We are await-
ing approval from the city com-
mission regarding the event and if
given the go ahead for the Oct. 28,
festival, we will certainly go
ahead! We have sent out letters to
past vendors to notify them of our
intentions and have some here at
the Chamber of Commerce for
those that might like to have a
booth but were not on the mail-
ing list. Let's keep our fingers
crossed and see if we can make
Clewiston Arts and Crafts Fall fes-
tival a huge success!
Finally, my board of directors
has approved a project that I have
been working on for a few weeks
now. The plan will hopefully allow
us to expand our membership in
the Chamber of Commerce, but
also give a bit of a break to existing
members in the process. By a "bit
of a break" I mean they could pos-
sible save some money when their
membership dues are up for
renewal. I can't give you any more
details yet sincewe are going to
unveil everything at our chamber
dinner on Sept. 19.
If you are a member of the
Clewiston Chamber of Commerce,
and you have something you think
the public should know about, let
us know first and we will include it
in this column. This space is your
space! We can include items in a
small paragraph, or if the news is
huge, I will write the whole col-
umn about only you! The sooner
we know the better, so we can be
sure and have time to get the infor-
mation in the column. I have men-
tioned previously that i have to sub-
mit this column by noon each
Monday, so keep that in mind
when submitting details to us. This
column is just another way we can
help your business prosper and let
the community know just how
great you are! See you next week!

COE inspects Herbert Hoover Dike


JACKSONVILLE In prepara-
tion for the arrival of the first major
storm of the hurricane season, the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers com-
pleted inspections of the Herbert
Hoover Dike and made gate adjust-
ments at the locks at Lake Okee-
chobee.
"The safety of lakeside commu-
nities is our highest priority," said
Col. Paul L. Grosskruger, Jack-
sonville District commander, Mon-
day. "With the lake water level at
around 12 feet, there is virtually no
risk of water going over or through
the Herbert Hoover Dike. We are
confident that the dike is secure
and ready to handle the rain and
winds of Hurricane Ernesto."
During a storm, the spillway and
locks along the Okeechobee
Waterway are staffed around the
clock to allow immediate response
with water control structure adjust-


ments as storm conditions change.
Locks will close to navigation if and
when 39 mph winds reach the
locks.
With below average rainfall this
summer throughout the Central
and South Florida Project system,
Lake Okeechobee's elevation is
currently 12.13' NGVD, more than
four feet lower than at this time last
year.
"Right now, we have a great
amount of water storage capacity
in the Kissimmee River, the Kissim-
mee River Basin and Lake Okee-
chobee," said John Zediak, chief of
the Jacksonville District's water
management section.
Mr. Zediak further explained
that, with the lake's water level at
about 12 feet, and the ground level
of Pahokee, one of the lowest lying
areas around the lake, at about 15
feet, that if the Herbert Hoover Dike


did not exist as it does today, water
would flow into the lake rather
than out of it.
Even the lowest elevations in
the South Bay area are 12 feet or
higher.
The Herbert Hoover Dike, a 140-
mile long embankment, surrounds
Lake Okeechobee. At its highest
point, the top of the dike is approxi-
mately 45 feet above sea level, and
at its lowest point, it is about 32 feet
above sea level. The top of the dike
is about 20 feet wide, and its base is
about 250 feet wide-nearly the
size of a football field. The dike was
built and has been successfully
managed by the corps for more
than 70 years.
"The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers has always taken, and will
continue to take, actions that
actions that put protection of the
public above all other considera-


tions. To that end, we work diligent-
ly to maintain the safety and stabili-
ty of Herbert Hoover Dike," Mr.
Grosskruger added. "We will con-
tinue to consult with local emer-
gency management officials to pro-
vide information for their use, in the
highly unlikely event that they must
make a decision to recommend
evacuation of the communities sur-
rounding Lake Okeechobee. With
the current status of the lake and
the dike, and the current weather
predictions, we do not believe this
will be necessary. We encourage
the lakeside communities to listen
for and follow further instructions
from their local emergency coordi-
nators."

Patient medication safety important


HENDRY COUNTY Hospi-
tals today need to comply with a
long list of regulatory standards
and be in a constant state of
'readiness.' Having access to
pharmacy services on a 24/7
basis is crucial to stay in compli-
ance and meet patient needs.
Considering these standards,
Hendry Regional Medical Center
became the first hospital in Flori-
da to acquire the services of a
Remote Pharmacy, whereby it
can provide continuous phar-
macy coverage. Physician orders


are entered and reviewed during
"off" hours, medication errors
are reduced, and the morning
back-log for staff is decreased as
a result of the services provided
by PharmPro.
Market researchers estimated
that 88 percent of American hos-
pitals have gaps in their pharma-
cy coverage at some time during
nights or weekends, and tradi-
tional staffing is not a cost-effec-
tive option for many of these
facilities.
Sandy Woodall, the Pharma-


cy Director at HRMC stated,
"With the Remote Pharmacy
services, the staff can now tap
into a seamless, around-the-
clock, remote order entry and
prescription verification service
when the need arises, without a
gap in pharmacy coverage. The
hospital remains in compliance
and fills patient needs safely
and reliably." At Hendry Region-
al Medical Center, we stand
behind our motto, "It's all about
getting better."


Hendry Regional Medical
Center Director of Pharma-
cy, Sandy Woodall takes
care in meeting patient med-
ication needs.

Bids accepted by county for water line extension


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY For the
peoples who purchased a lot in
Banyan Village from the now
bankrupt General Development,
a water line extension is being
placed in the subdivision to facil-
itate placing a home on their
property.
The Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners accept-
ed bids from four companies to
start the process. The compa-
nies are: Forsberg Construction
Inc., Strickler Brothers Inc.,
Mitchell and Stark Construction


Co., and Reynolds Inc. Each of
these bids came in at more than
$8 million.
The commission simply
voted to accept the bids, not
make the final selection on
which of the four companies
will ultimately receive the
award.
According to county officials,
the bids were not awarded
because the cost of the project
has not been finalized.
The water line extension will
run through Banyan Village, a
subdivision of Port Labelle. The
extension is made up of approxi-
mately seven miles of transmis-


sion line to extend water from
the Port Labelle water plan. It
also involves distribution lines
that encompass approximately
2,400 lots in the area.
The water line extension will
service the equivalent of half of
the residents in Clewiston.
The extension is being han-
dled by Hendry County because
it agreed to serve Banyan Village
as part of the purchase between
the state of Florida and General
Development when the project
was initially proposed.
Of course, with the expan-
sion, the water plant will also
bring potentially many more


customers.
Besides providing water to
those who wish to build houses
on their lots, officials said, the
water line extension will also
provide a site between the water
plant in Port Labelle and Banyan
Village that future developers
can landscape.
Though the county is provid-
ing the extension, other funding
is anticipated to come from
sources such as the USDA Rural
Utility Service grants and loans
and from future developers who
will connect to the transmission
line.

Bush rewards high performing schools


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush and state education
leaders announced $157.6 mil-
lion in funding to 1,799 Florida
schools in recognition of aca-
demic achievement and
improvement during the 2005-
2006 school year more than
five times the number of schools
and funding first rewarded in
1999. As part of the A+ School
Recognition Program, schools
that achieve an "A" based on the
school grading criteria or
improve at least one grade from
the previous year, are awarded
$100 per student. Since 1999,.
Florida has awarded more than
$852.7 million in school recogni-
tion funding.
"Today, we reward the tire-
less efforts of students, parents,
and educators who are commit-
ted to achieving academic suc-
cess," said Governor Bush.
"When the standards for suc-
cess are set high, we begin to
fully recognize what our stu-
dents can accomplish."
Governor Bush marked the
announcement by presenting
checks to Webb Middle School
in Tampa and Sadler Elementary
in Orlando. Both schools
received recognition funds for
academic success. Education
Commissioner John L. Winn, K-


12 Public Schools Chancellor
Cheri Pierson Yecke, Ph.D., State
Board of Education Vice Chair T.
Willard Fair and State Board of
Education Members Donna Call-
away, Phoebe Raulerson and
Kathleen Shanahan also visited
schools throughout the state to
honor their achievement.
Recognition funds are allo-
cated based on a joint decision
by a school-appointed commit-
tee of teachers and administra-
tors. Funds can be used by a
school to purchase one-time fac-
ulty incentives such as educa-
tional equipment, new technol-
ogy, staff bonuses, or hiring
temporary personnel to assist in
maintaining and improving stu-
dent performance.
Florida schools earned a
record number of "A" and "B"
grades in 2006 more than any
previous year. Since 1999, when
the A+ Plan for Education was
implemented, schools have
improved from only 515 schools
earning an "A" or "B" to 2,077
schools in 2006 four times the
number of high-performing
schools seven years ago and 234
more than last year (up from
1,843). Three of every four Flori-
da schools were considered
high performing in 2006. At the
same time, the number of failing


schools is on the decline, down
to a fourth of the number of fail-
ing schools in 1999. This year,
there are 142 "D" and "F"
schools compared to 677
schools seven years ago.
A++ Plan
for Education
This year, the Florida Legisla-
ture approved Governor Bush's
A++ Plan for Education to
increase the rigor and relevance
of Florida's middle and high
schools. Middle school students
will now be required to com-
plete 12 core academic courses
(three each in English, math, sci-
ence and social studies), as well
as one course in career and edu-
cation planning, in order to be
promoted to high school. High
school students are now
required to complete an addi-
tional math credit for graduation
and choose a major area of
interest. These measures will
better prepare students for post-
secondary education and the
workforce.
Education Funding
Under the leadership of Gov-
ernor Bush, funding for educa-
tion has increased 69 percent or
$7.7 billion, providing millions
of Florida's students with a high-


quality education. Governor
Bush implemented higher stan-
dards and developed an
accountable system that has
made a positive impact on
improving student learning.
Assistance Plus
For Florida's struggling
schools, the Assistance Plus pro-
gram provides funding,
resources and support to
address areas of weakness. In
addition, failing schools receive
school improvement facilitators,
reading coaches, technical assis-
tance and assessments to moni-
tor student progress. Schools
that have repeatedly failed will
be required to take immediate
action to show improvement. In
May, the State Board of Educa-
tion approved measures that
require schools districts to take
bold action to turn failing
schools around, such as restruc-
turing the grade configuration of
the school and implementing
new research-based curriculum
programs. The Assistance Plus
program will help these schools
achieve these goals.

Florida's cracker horse was a key player


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Cracker horses are genuinely
almost native to Florida. Their
ancestors were brought to Florida
by the Spanish explorers in the
16th century. These Colonial
Spanish horses descended from
the horses Andalusia in southern
Spain, and possibly North Africa,
during the period of the conquest
of the New World.
Thanks to the patience and
horse savvy of the Spanish, a
horse was chosen that was small
enough to bring across the
Atlantic in a sailboat, yet tough
enough to endure the rigors and
hardships of working in an
unknown world.
The Colonial Spanish Horse
was able to survive the harshest
of weather and endure the most
sustained work, as military
mounts, work horses and herding
horses. They are the foundation
of the western mustangs and the
Florida cracker horse.
In the year 1521, Juan Ponce
De Leon brought a small herd of
Andalusian cattle and horses
with him on his second expedi-
tion to the New World. These
were the first cattle and horses to
ever set foot (or hoof) on what is
now the continental United
States. The Spanish explorers
were forced back to their ship by
the Calusa Indian warriors, and
Ponce De Leon received a mortal
wound. There is no record of
what became of the explorers
livestock, so it is thought that
these were the first cattle and
horses to ever run wild in Flori-
da. The horses brought to the
New World were the product of
selective breeding and they
played a tremendous role in
Florida History.
In 1540, Don Diego Maldona-
do brought a large herd of Span-
ish cattle and horses to the Pen-
sacola Bay area to supply the
expedition of Hernando De Soto.
Don Diego was unable to make
contact with the conquistadors
and it was reported that many of
the cattle were lost to run wild in
the timber of north Florida or left
with the Indians.
In 1565, Pedro Menendez De
Aviles founded the city of St.
Augustine and soon had cattle
and horses shipped from Spain to
begin producing beef for the gar-
rison.
Ranching was. born when
Jesuit and Franciscan Friars set up
a system of missions across north
and north-central Florida. Their
mission was to convert Indians to
Christianity but the Friars also
used Indian labor to tend live-
stock and crops. These were the
first established ranches in North
America. Note that the pilgrims
who landed at Plymouth Rock
had not yet been born.
By 1700, there were over 30
privately owned ranchos in Flori-
da. A census ordered by Spanish
tax collectors reported over
20,000 cattle on the ranchos. Mis-
sion herds were exempt from
reporting, cattle owned by indi-
vidual chiefs and those running
wild would not have been count-
ed. Persons born in Florida to
Spanish parents were known as
Criollas. Many Criolla men
worked as vaqueros on the ran-
chos of Florida. Vaqueros and
natives clashed during the Indian
revolt of 1647. These were proba-
bly the first fights between cow-
boys and Indians in North Ameri-
ca.
To protect horses being carried
in ships, slings were constructed
to allow the horses to swing with
the roll of the ship, and to take the
weight off their feet. Confinement
in damp, dark holds and lack of
exercise took its toll on equine
emigrants. Sometimes half of the
horses died on the long passage
to America.
That section of the Atlantic
Ocean known as the "Horse Lati-
tudes" gained its name from the

INI/Florida Archives
Artist Fredrick Remington immortalized the Florida Cracker cow hunter and his horse in this
drawing that first appeared in "Harpers" magazine in August, 1895.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


sad fact that innumerable dead
horses were thrown overboard
into the ocean during these early
voyages of colonization. Horse
transport between the Old and
New Worlds remained a great
hazard until only recently.
Records from the 1800s tell of the
frequent death of valuable horses,
lost to the stormy Atlantic.
When a ship anchored off the
coast of the New World, the hors-
es that survived the voyage were
brought out of their stalls in the
ship's hold. In order to prevent
the horses from panicking, they
were blindfolded and carefully
raised from below deck by hoists
attached to slings surrounding the
horses' bodies. In these early days
before wharves were built, the
horses were lowered into the
water and made to swim ashore,
led by men in row boats.
The horses that survived the
journey were the toughest of the
tough. Small, quick and tough,
with an uncanny herding instinct,
together with a running walk,
known as a "Coon gait" by South-
erners, these horses were major
contributors to Florida's cattle-
based economy.
During the "Dust Bowl" years
of 1930's, government programs
encouraged moving cattle herds
out of areas hardest hit by the
droughts into the lush grasslands
of Florida. The great influx of cat-
tle should have been a boon to
the naturally gifted cow ponies,
except for the parasitic screw-
worm that came with the cattle
and flourished in the warm,
humid climate. The entire cattle
industry changed, jeopardizing
the place of the Cracker. Where
once a small, agile horse was per-
fect for chasing, turning and stop-
ping cows, now bigger, stouter
horses were needed to rope and
hold them for treatment against
the parasite.
Florida cracker horses almost
became extinct during the Great
Depression of the 1930s, but Flori-
da ranchers who respected these
tough little horses, did not let that
happen.
In 1984, the family of John

This graphic is a portion of a painting showing Hernando de
Soto, one of Florida's Spanish explorers mounted on a horse
brought to the New World.
Law Ayers donated a small herd
of cracker horses to the Depart-

herd of pure old cracker stock and
resisted temptations to cross
them with other breeds. From this .
stock, horse herds were estab-

in Tallahassee and on the Withla-

Watch out for price gauging


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist advised
Floridians on Monday, Aug. 28, to
begin preparing early as the state
anticipates Hurricane Ernesto's
landfall later this week. In addition
to encouraging early preparation,
Crist urged residents and visitors to
use caution when purchasing
necessities prior to the storm and
when hiring workers to help clean
up from its' aftermath.
As Florida prepares for the pos-
sibility of another significant storm
threatening the state, Crist remind-
ed citizens to beware of business-
es or individuals overcharging for
food, water, ice, gas, lodging and
generators and for materials or
services needed to prepare for the
storm. This practice, known as


price gouging, is against the law in
Florida under the Florida Decep-
tive and Unfair Trade Practices Act.
When your family's safety is on
the line, it's never too early to start
preparing, said Crist. It looks like
Florida may be squarely in this
hurricane's cross-hairs, and Florid-
ians should start getting ready.
Those who suspect price goug-
ing before or after the storm
should call the Attorney General's
hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-
866-966-7226), and investigators
will look into the complaint. Flori-
da law prohibits extreme increases
in the price of such commodities
as food, water, hotels, ice, gaso-
line, lumber and equipment need-
ed as a direct result of an officially
declared emergency.


Under Florida law, a commodi-
ty's price is considered uncon-
scionable if the increase in the
price represents a "gross disparity"
from the average price of that
commodity during the 30 days
immediately prior to the declared
emergency. Violators of the price
gouging statute are subject to civil
penalties of $1,000 per violation,
up to a total of $25,000 for multiple
violations committed in a single
24-hour period.
In addition to the civil penal-
ties for price gouging, a law
enacted last year criminalizes
the sale of goods and services to
the public during a declared
state of emergency by anyone
who does not possess an occu-
pational license. Violators of the


law can be charged with a sec-
ond-degree misdemeanor.
During the previous two
record-setting hurricane seasons,
the Attorney General's Office con-
ducted thousands of preliminary
investigations into price gouging
complaints, initiated 83 formal
investigations and filed 17 price
gouging lawsuits against hotels,
generator businesses, tree
removal companies and other
businesses. To date, the Attorney
General's Office has recovered
more than $1.3 million in restitu-
tion or reimbursements for Florida
consumers from price gouging
settlements and other resolutions.
Other investigations and settle-
ment negotiations are ongoing.


Sheriff reports


another drug bust


CLEWISTON- On August
25, 2006, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office Criminal Inves-
tigations Division executed a
search warrant at 1872 Hook-
ers Point Road in Clewiston.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said
investigators located what
appeared to be crack cocaine,
marijuana, prescription nar-
cotics, and several items of
drug paraphernalia within the
residence.
Demaster Auther, 25, was
arrested and faces charges of
possession of cocaine, posses-


sion of cocaine with intent to
sell, possession of marijuana,
possession of drug parapherna-
lia, and operating a drug house.
Kenneth Wagoner, 48, was
arrested and faces charges of
possession of cocaine, posses-
sion of marijuana, possession
of drug paraphernalia, posses-
sion of a controlled substance
without a prescription, and
operating a drug house.
Auther's bond was set at
$41,000. Wagoner's bond was
set at $61,000.

The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-

reads, in part, "Border Security
and Enforcement is vital to our
national security. A safe, afford-
able and abundant domestic food

The message then points to the

Most parents want to protect
their children not only from physi-
cal danger, but also from the emo-
tional pain that life can bring. While
we accept that small hurts will hap-
pen a disagreement with a sib-
ling or friend, the loss of a toy we
usually believe we're helping our
children by sheltering them from
the bigger problems.
Unfortunately, being overly pro-
tective can do harm. Kids are usual-
ly more aware of bad news than
we suspect, but often get the details
wrong and may even feel responsi-
ble for what's gone wrong.
Most children know when a
family is having problems, even if
nobody has said anything directly
to them. But; kids frequently get the
news in bits and pieces that add up
to an incomplete, confusing and
often frightening picture.
The solution is to share informa-

The Blue Card has no GPA or FCAT,

tion with your children. No child
needs all the gory details of a job
loss or a troubled marriage, but
should have enough age-appropri-
ate information to feel included
and part of something important to
the family.
Start by reassuring your children
that what is happening is not their
fault. Kids iare used to being
blamed for messing up, and they
often assume that when trouble
happens, whether it's economic
woes or marital strife, it's usually


role model students that meet high
standard criteria."
In return, the students will have
certain benefits and privileges,
including reduced admission at
home games and dances and pizza
parties. Students with Gold Cards
will have permission to leave for
lunch and the bus three minutes
earlier than the rest of the class. Sil-
ver and Blue Card holders will be
able to leave earlier a few days out
of the week. Card holders will also
enjoy the best parking spaces.
These incentives, school offi-
cials hope, will encourage the stu-
dents to continue their good work
and promote other students to
improve their academic standards.
"It is more usual to see stu-
dents being called out of their
classrooms for a referral or a neg-
ative circumstance, that's why we
created this program," said Brian
Pollitt, chairman of the card pro-
gram. "We want to see more pos-
itive attitudes."


tural policy division. "We believe
that immigration reform must be
done in a comprehensive manner
that includes border security,
enforcement and a viable legal
guest worker program."
Florida Farm Bureau members
are concerned that any immigra-
tion reform proposal that does not
include a viable guest worker pro-
gram would cause significant loss-
es to state agriculture.
"We support homeland security
and an end to illegal immigration,
but not at the expense of crippling
agriculture and driving production


because of something they did.
Reassure your children that
you, their parents, are on top of
things and are working to fix the
problem. Let the kids know that
it is okay to ask about what's
going on, especially if they see
you upset, worried, angry or cry-
ing. Children feel reassured
when they know they can ask
questions, get information and
feel included.
Of course, how much informa-
tion you share depends on your
children's ages. A young child
doesn't understand economic
issues associated with a job loss,
but will know that you're upset,
worried, and acting differently.
Older children may need more

American Red Cross reacts to rise in home fires


WEST PALM BEACH With
the high number of home fires over
the last week, the American Red
Cross, Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter, reminds people to take
fires seriously and secure their
homes and families against this
possible danger with fire safety
tips.
Last week alone the Greater
Palm Beach Area Chapter respond-
ed to four fires that displaced 41
people providing needed food,
clothing and shelter to each victim.
In addition, chapter caseworkers
continue working with each indi-
vidual as they get their lives back
together. On average, the Greater
Palm Beach Area Chapter
responds to a fire once every 48
hours. Last year, it responded to
more than 200 fires.
"Hurricanes are not the only
disaster that affects our communi-
ty," said Mary Blakeney, chapter


emergency services director.
"Although not as dramatic as a hur-
ricane, fires represent a huge disas-
ter occurring in our community on
a daily basis. Each one is a total dis-
aster to the victims. Families and
individuals loose their homes,
clothing and irreplaceable person-
al items."
The Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter encourages residents to
consider the following safety tips to
mitigate the possibilities of loss to
fires:
Make Your Home Fire Safe
Smoke alarms save lives.
Install a smoke alarm outside each
sleeping area and on each addi-
tional level ofyour home.
If people sleep with doors
closed, install smoke alarms inside
sleeping areas, too.
Use the test button to check
each smoke alarm once a month.
When necessary, replace batteries


immediately. Replace all batteries
at least once a.year.
Vacuum away cobwebs and
dust from your smoke alarms
monthly.
Smoke alarms become less
sensitive over time. Replace your
smoke alarms every ten years.
Consider having one or more
working fire extinguishers in your
home. Get training from the fire
department in how to use them.
Consider installing an auto-
matic fire sprinkler system in your
home.
Plan Your Escape Routes
Determine at least two ways
to escape from every room of your
home.
Consider escape ladders for
sleeping areas on the second or
third floor. Learn how to use them
and store them near the window.
Select a location outside your
home where everyone would


meet after escaping.
Practice your escape plan at
least twice a year.
Escape Safely
Once you are out, stay out!
Call the fire department from a
neighbor's home.
If you see smoke or fire in
your first escape route, use your
second way out. If you must exit
through smoke, crawl low under
the smoke to your exit.
If you are escaping through a
closed door, feel the door before
opening it. If it is warm, use your
second way out.
If smoke, heat, or flames
block your exit routes, stay in the
room with the door closed. Signal
for help using a bright-colored
cloth at the window. If there is a
telephone in the room, call the fire
department and tell them where
you are.

Remember


'Them bones gonna rise again!'


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Years ago at summer camp we
sang a song about the Garden of
Eden called, "Them Bones". Sev-
eral of the verses in the song are
">out the serpent, Eve, and the for-
bitrien fruit. "Apples, peaches,
pears and such. Them bones
gonna rise again! (TBGRA!) But
one fruit you must not touch.

We see something we desire and
then we try to rationalize our need
for it. Before we know it, tempta-
tion draws us and lures us into
doing something we might not
normally do. Again, we rationalize:
"It's really not that bad." "Others do
it." "The Lord won't mind."
And the hard thing in all of this is
that our temptation can be for any-
thing. It can involve money or
worldly goods, but doesn't have to.
The temptation can be for affec-

we can control alcohol, food,
drugs, sex, the compulsion to
make money, or any other addic-
tion. We are in control and nothing
can control us. Wrong!
I once heard a TV evangelist
share, "Temptation is seductive
and beautiful. Temptation lures
us in and gives us a false sense of
security and makes everything
seem right for awhile." There
was truth in what he said. Sin is
spdurctive Rut what came next I


hand, pray for you by name, and
that temptation will leave you
never to return again." It kind of
makes you wonder who was
praying for his temptations.
Temptations hit all of us at some
time, and one thing is for sure,
"Them bones of temptation are
gonna rise again!" No one is
exempt. Not even Jesus. Jesus was
led into the wilderness, and He
was tempted. He was tempted to
change stones into bread. He was
temnted with individual need. He


world. He was finally tempted to
challenge God.
Jesus used Scripture, prayer,
and faith to overcome the tempta-
tions that came His way. After
Jesus overcame the temptations,
He called the disciples together,
and built a community that can
uplift and uphold one another. In
doing all of this, Jesus becomes
our hope. Jesus gives us the exam-
ple of how to deal with our own
temptations. We have Scripture,
nraver. faith. and the power and


solving the other problems. Jesus
is our example to follow.
The world will continue to
tempt us. There are many apples
out there that we could pick.
Through the love and grace of
God in Christ, we have help not
only to resist the temptations, but
saving help when we do slip and
yield to them.

Grace, who sat at her hus-

slowly slipping away, lived his
last days as she had done all her

understood how she felt.
"What could you have done?"
I asked but my question did not
bring an answer.
In reality, she had done all she
could have done; more than
might be expected. She would
use those words that I had heard
before, "If only..."
Somehow she seemed to feel
guilty about something beyond
her human control. Everyone
knew of her sacrifices and giving
of herself that she did not war-
rant.
Throughout my ministry, I see
people who feel that somehow
they have a part to play in the
unfolding of events when they
do not; that somehow they can
change things when they can-


not being able to go to the hospi-
tal one evening and her hus-
band's inevitable death that
should not have made her feel
guilty about anything.
I do not believe that her hus-
band 'chose' to die that evening,
or would have wanted her to feel
guilty about being there if we
could have asked him.
They were a good couple and
loved each other. He didn't strike
me as the kind of person that
would consciously inflict such
pain on a loving wife.
The classic story of guilt is
found in the account of one,
Judas Iscariot. He was the one
who betrayed the Lord. Because
he was weak, "Judas went to the
chief priests and the officers of


Later, when he realized what he
had done, "He was seized with
remorse and tried to return the
thirty silver coins that chief priests
and the elders had given him.
"I have sinned," he said. "For I
have betrayed innocent blood."
"What is that to us," they
replied. "That is your responsibili-
ty" (Matthew 27:3-4)."
He threw the money down
and they picked it up after he left.
Those who paid for the evil deed
do not accept their part in the
complicity; and they won't lift a
finger to help a guilty person by
acknowledging their hand in
what he had done. Curiously,
Jesus' advice to Judas, when He
know of the betrayal that was
about to come was, "What you


within. Those who should have
shared them refused to acknowl-
edge for their part; those who set
the stage for him to feel guilty and
had some power to release him
from some of his suffering turned
their back on him. Guilt is among
the greatest causes of human suf-
fering and tragedy.
'We need to make sure that
when we feel guilty, we have a
real reason to do so; that we
don't make others feel guilty to
manipulate them or to make us
feel better when we shouldn't.
We need to help others ease
guilty feelings when we can. That
would make for a much, much
better world and lots of happier
people. That's what God intends.


Jews for Jesus to present 'Christ in the feast of Tabernacles'


Is Pahokee First United
Methodist Church undergoing a
building renovation by Jews for
Jesus? Not exactly, but the church
will allow Jews for Jesus to come
and construct a temporary booth
or sukkah on Sunday, Sept. 10, at
11 a.m., to explain the signifi-
cance of the Feast of Booths or
Tabernacles.
Why come to church to hear
about ancient Jewish rituals?
"Maybe," says Greg Savitt,
"because those rituals served as a
backdrop for the gospel accounts
of the life story of Jesus, and
.because this holiday points to
Jesus as the Messiah for Israel
:and for everyone else. That's why
we call the presentation Christ in
the Feast of Tabernacles."
SGreg Savitt of Jews for Jesus
,will explain how the Feast of
Tabernacles, or Sukkot, is a
vibrant part of Jewish life today
and how the holiday offers a
wealth of meaning for Christians
who value their Old Testament
heritage. He will also demon-
strate how Sukkot plays into
God's worldwide plans for
tomorrow.
This sermonic demonstration
uses a variety of visual aids to


show the rich history of the feast
and its attendant traditions. Mr.
Savitt sets up an actual sukkah or
ceremonial booth, inviting con-
gregants to help adorn the booth
with harvest fruits and foliage as
part of the demonstration. He
transports you to Jerusalem in
Jesus' day and sets the stage for
his claims to be the Light of the
World and the Living Water. "This
presentation is a glimpse into the
Jewish life that Jesus lived on this
earth," Mr. Savitt says. "Anyone
who loves Jesus will feel they
know Him even more intimately
as they learn more about the ritu-
als he and his disciples observed.
Seekers or skeptics who wonder
about the Jewishness of Jesus are
also very welcome."
Those who attend will see cer-
emonies such as the ancient
water pouring ceremony, the
waving of the lulav and the hang-
ing of fruit in the temporary shel-
ter. Adults are encouraged to
bring their children ages seven
and older.
David Brickner, executive
director of Jews for Jesus, and
author of Future Hope a Jewish
Christian look at the end of the
world, believes that this holiday


points to prophetic events.
"While the Feast of Tabernacles is
a Jewish holiday, the Scripture
tells us that one day people from
all the nations of the world will
celebrate it together. I believe that
will come about when the Messi-
ah returns."
He went on to say that
"...regardless of one's view on
that point, Christians should not
miss out on this dramatic experi-
ence. Jesus not only celebrated
the Feast of Tabernacles, He
used it as the occasion to reveal
something about His nature and
His mission."
Mr. Brickner, who has served
with Jews for Jesus since 1980,
was elected executive director in
1996, when he was 38. He sees
Jews for Jesus as a nineties min-
istry that is 2,000 years old. "We
began in 32 AD, give or take a
year. Jesus' first followers were
Jewish men and women and
since then, there have been some
of us in every generation." Jews
for Jesus is an evangelistic agency
best known for creative methods
and materials. Their literature
deals with contemporary themes
including anything from current
films to the new millennium.


Their "broadsides" (gospel tracts)
use humor and clever illustrations
yet have a serious message: that
Jesus is the promised Messiah for
Jews and Gentiles.
Jews for Jesus also communi-
cates through original Jewish
gospel music and drama, which
they present through mobile
teams such as The Liberated
Wailing Wall. Their comprehen-
sive web site can be found at
www.jewsforjesus.org. They
, have regular branches through-
,out North America (San Francis-
co, Los Angeles, Chicago, Toron-
to, New York City, Washington,
D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as
well as over 70 volunteer chap-
ters spanning some 30 states.


The group's international
branches are headquartered in
Johannesburg, London, Paris,
Odessa, Moscow, Berlin, Sydney
and Tel Aviv.
You won't have to travel that
far to see the Gospel in the Feast
of Tabernacles, as it will be com-
ing to First United Methodist
Church in Pahokee, on Sunday,
Sept. 10, at 11 a.m. There is no
admission charge. Greg Savitt will
be available after the presenta-
tion to answer questions. Paho-
kee FUMC 'Pastor, Rev. David
Reeves, invites everyone to
attend this exciting and informa-
tive presentation. For more infor-
mation, contact the church at
(561) 924-7241.

SUCCEED grants support career education programs


TALLAHASSEE Lt. Governor
Toni Jennings and Education Com-
missioner John L. Winn
announced on Aug. 22, the recipi-
ents of $33.4 million in 2006-2007
SUCCEED, Florida! Career Educa-
tion Grants. Through this funding
provided by the Florida Legislature,
the Florida Department of Educa-
tion (DOE) will award 87 new
competitive grants to support new
and expanding programs in nurs-
ing/allied health, manufacturing,
automotive technology and
teacher certification in public and
private career centers, community
colleges and universities all
areas designated by Enterprise
Florida and Workforce Florida as
targeted sectors for statewide eco-
nomic development. The funding
will also support the addition of 102
career academies with $5.3 million
from 'SUCCEED, Florida!' Nearly
$2.1 million from funding the Flori-
da Legislature will be appropriated


to implement Governor Bush's
A+ + Plan for Education.
"The 'SUCCEED, Florida!' Grant
Program will ensure our state has a
well-educated and strong work-
force in the health, education,
manufacturing and automotive
technology sectors," said Lt. Gover-
nor Jennings. "This investment in
Florida's workforce will help main-
tain our competitive edge in retain-
ing and attracting new businesses
to our state."
Established in 2005, the 'SUC-
CEED, Florida!' Grant Program is
designed to build capacity for edu-
cation programs to meet the state's
most critical workforce needs. This
year, the allied health, manufactur-
ing and automotive industries
added their support to 'SUCCEED,
Florida!' funding to address work-
force shortages in these sectors.
During 2006-2007, 24 new allied
health grants, five new manufac-
turing grants and seven new auto-


motive technology grants will be
funded. Additionally, two critical
workforce shortage areas funded
last year teaching and nursing
- remain a priority. Additionally,
33 teaching grants and 18 nursing
grants are being awarded today.
"The 'SUCCEED, Florida!' Grant
program enables us to better meet
our state's critical need for teach-
ers," said Commissioner Winn.
"The funding of 102 career orient-
ed academies represents the state's
first down payment on new educa-
tional experiences and opportuni-
ties for our high school students."
The 'SUCCEED, Florida!' Grant
Program is aligned with Commis-
sioner Winn's four-point plan to
better prepare today's students for
tomorrow's workforce. Last year
Commissioner Winn identified
measures the DOE would take to
expand career academies in high
schools, align career education
with industry standards and work-


force demands and expand
options for students to continue
their education and enter the work-
place. Since the creation of the pro-
gram, 141 new career academies
have been funded.
"Career education, in high
school and beyond, gives students
a passport to the American Dream
with training and education for an
incredible career," said Communi-
ty College and Workforce Educa-
tion Chancellor David Armstrong.
"'SUCCEED, Florida!' funding
helps us create a pipeline begin-
ning in high school to meet our
state's workforce needs, and create
opportunities for students to begin
climbing their career ladder in high
schools, technical centers, com-
munity colleges and universities."
In its' second year, the 'SUC-
CEED, Florida!' Grant Program is
already making a significant differ-
ence in the number and type of
career education programs offered


throughout the state. Also part of
the $33.4 million Lt. Governor Jen-
nings and Commissioner Winn
awarded are continuation funds
from the 2005-06 'SUCCEED, Flori-
da!' Grants, which include 15 nurs-
ing grants, 26 teaching grants and
36 career academy grants.
More than 1,000 students are
enrolled in career academies fund-
ed in during 2005-2006. Last year,
17 nursing grants, 27 teaching
grants and 39 career academies
grants were awarded to schools
and colleges throughout the state.
These grants enabled more than
2100 new students to pursue a
career in teaching. The nursing
grants attracted 328 new nursing
students and produced nearly 200
faculty to alleviate the backlog in
community college nursing pro-
grams.
"Improving Florida's business
climate is directly linked to
improvements in our education


system at all levels," said President
of Gulf Power and Vice Chairman i
of Enterprise Florida Susan Story.
"'SUCCEED, Florida!' helps )
strengthen the connection ,
between education and economic ,
development because without a ,
highly skilled workforce, there is,,
no economic development."

Teachers can apply for Ag in the Classroom grants


GAINESVILLE The Florida
Farm Bureau Federation
reminds teachers that Oct. 1 is
the deadline to apply for its' Ag
in the Classroom Mini-Grants.
These grants are designed to
assist educators with projects
that integrate agriculture with
other classroom curricula.
"Helping students under-
stand agriculture's role in society
is important," said Rachel
Kudelko, coordinator of Florida
Farm Bureau's Young Farmers
and Ranchers program. "We see


this program as a win-win for
Florida teachers and Florida
agriculture."
All kindergarten through
eighth grade teachers are wel-
come to apply. The grants are
$250 each and can be used for a
variety of educational projects
pertaining to agriculture.
The Florida Farm Bureau-
Agriculture in the Classroom
grant is a public/private partner-
ship serving kindergarten
through eighth grade education
with a goal of helping to


increase the understanding of
agriculture among students and
educators. The program is
administered through Florida
Farm Bureau, Florida's oldest
and largest general farm organi-
zation. Up to $7,500 may be
awarded in mini-grants through-
out the state by Florida Farm
Bureau during the year.
Agriculture has no subject
area boundaries, and entries are
encouraged in: social studies,
math, language arts, science,
environmental education or any


other subject area or combina-
tion of areas that effectively inte-
grate key agricultural principles
i.e., production, promotion, etc.
The application to apply for
the grant can download from
the Florida Farm Bureau Web
site at http://floridafarmbu-
reau.org/programs_teach-
ersMiniGrants.aspx.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gen-
eral-interest agricultural associa-
tion with about 140,000
member-families statewide.


Headquartered in Gainesville,
the Federation is an independ-
ent, non-profit agricultural
organization. More information


about Florida Farm Bureau is
available on the organization's ,
Web site, http://FloridaFarmBu-i;

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee












Save our beautiful shade trees


AP/UF/IFAS/Thomas Wright
E.T. York, chancellor emeritus of the state's public university
system, is one of two former University of Florida adminis-
trators who'll have new peanut varieties named for them at
the Peanut Field Day in Marianna Thursday. (Photo from
8/16/2006). UF is releasing three peanut varieties: the York,
McCloud and Florida-07.



UF introduces new



varieties of peanuts


'By Mickie Anderson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- University
of Florida researchers are releas-
ing three new peanut varieties -
two of them named for former
'university administrators that
.they hope will give a market-
dominant Georgia peanut some
,hearty competition.
"It's the first peanut ever pro-
iduced by Florida that made
7,000 pounds an acre in tests in
both Marianna and Gainesville,"
the said. "We've never had the
same peanut make 7,000
,pounds an acre we've had it
;happen here and there, but
'never twice in same season in
|tw o sites." '- -' :. .
SThe York variety, n iied for
former State University System
Chancellor E.T. York, also has
strong resistance to the disease,
is high in healthy oils and has a
long shelf life, Dan Gorbet said.
And McCloud, a variety named
for the late UF agronomy depart-
ment chairman Darell McCloud,
shares similar traits.
The three new varieties were
unveiled Aug. 24, at UF's Peanut
Field Day in Marianna. They have
{enough differences in traits that
matter to farmers, such as when
they mature, that it made sense
jto release three varieties at once,
Mr. Gorbet said.
UF breeders released high
oleic acid peanuts the healthy
kind that lower cholesterol in
1995 and 1997, Mr. Gorbet said.
But those varieties couldn't
stand up to tomato spotted wilt
virus like the new ones.
"We're just now getting mate-
rial put out that has good resist-
ance to that virus," he said.
The new varieties, created
through traditional breeding,
have been in the works about a
decade, said Mr. Gorbet, a
peanut breeder since 1970.
Compared with the many
peanut varieties UF has issued
rover the years, these "stack up
really well," he said.
The Florunner, introduced in
1969, dominated the market for
:two decades before it grew sus-
Iceptible to tomato spotted wilt


virus, he said.
The breeders hope the new
varieties will give the market-
dominant "Georgia Green"
peanut a run for its money
because the new ones are higher
in heart-healthy oils, he said.
The peanut breeders named
the two varieties for the former
UF administrators because of
their work to advance agricul-
ture, Mr. Gorbet said, and
because they'd both focused on
improving peanut production.
Mr. York, chancellor emeritus
of Florida's public university sys-
tem, was UF's provost for agri-
culture, vice president for agri-
cultural affairs, executive vice
president and interim president.
In 1964, he organized UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences, bringing the College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences,
the Florida Agricultural Experi-
ment Station and Florida Coop-
erative Extension Service all
under one umbrella.
He's been an adviser to six
U.S. presidents and traveled the
globe to lend agricultural assis-
tance in Latin America, Asia and
Africa.
But lesser known is that Mr.
York began his career as a North
Carolina State University agrono-
mist, and his first assignment:
figuring out how to boost what
were then stagnant peanut-crop
yields.
He did so, and eventually
penned a chapter for the text-
book "The Peanut: The Unpre-
dictable Legume." And while the
title seemed apt at the time, after
exhaustive research on peanut
production, he realized that
farmers who followed a com-
plete package of recommended
techniques enjoyed much higher
crop yields than those who did-
n't.
York said having a peanut
named for him is "quite an
honor," though he said it's sure
to earn him some ribbing.
"I'll be kidded a lot about it,
but that's all right," he said,
before grinning and making a
joke of his own. "It makes sense,
since I've been working for
peanuts for all these years."

Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is another in a series of
articles written about the new
area program called Florida
Yards & Neighborhoods.
Recently I heard a chain saw
roaring just down the block from
where I live. Upon further inspec-
tion I found a neighbor was hav-
ing his beautiful shade trees
topped; not a leaf was left on
them and each tree had only a
few short branches left. Appar-
ently the threat of hurricane dam-
age from falling trees has created
a demand for topping of shade
trees. According to Dr. Ed
Gilman, our tree guru and a pro-
fessor in the environmental horti-
culture department of the Univer-
sity of Florida, "allowing urban
trees to be topped is misguided
and would set back arboriculture
in Florida 30 years."
If you are considering topping
your trees to prevent storm dam-
age please consider that these
trees, especially if they are
natives, have evolved to survive
hurricanes. Topped trees provide
no shade until they fill out again,
therefore creating a hotter urban
environment, thus increased
energy cost for air conditioning,
more stormwater runoff, more

are weakened, becoming more
susceptible to disease and insect
damage that can cause death.
Many environmentally friend-
ly practices are available to
reduce tree damage starting with
proper selection of trees. Some
of the trees that are native and
better able to withstand wind
damage are Cabbage Palms
(Sabal palmetto), Live Oak
(Quercus laurifolia), East Palatka
Holly (Ilex attenuate), Southern
Magnolia (Magnolia grandiflora)
and Flowering Dogwood (Cor-
nus florida).
Proper tree placement is
another factor; placing taller
trees away from the home and
power lines to prevent structural
damage should one blow over in
high winds.
Some reduction of tree
canopies can be done using
proper pruning techniques. Stop
in at your local extension office
for information on pruning land-
scape trees and shrubs. They
also have a new brochure from
the University of Florida titled
"Assessing Damage and Restor-
ing Trees After a Hurricane"
which has excellent information
on tree recovery should they be
damaged by high winds. You
may also obtain excellent infor-
mation on urban tree care at the
University of Florida web site:

Be careful with mushrooms, toadstools and fairy rings


By Dan Culbert
IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
A recent phone call to our office
suggested that I write a column
about collecting wild edible mush-
rooms. Our drier than normal sum-
mer weather has recently turned
wet. Now is the time to see these
amazing organisms to pop up in
Florida Yards. However, please
DON'T pick the mushrooms, or
consider adding them to your din-
ner plate, as many are poisonous.
Master Gardeners and Horticul-
ture Agents have a few rules that
should never be broken, such as
read the label, use research-based
recommendations, and one more
that relates to today's topic: NEVER
tell anyone that a mushroom is edi-
ble. It's not that there are delicious
wild mushrooms out there. There
are just too many that can make
you sick or even kill you. Mush-
room identification must be done
by experts with lots of experience.
One such expert is Wakulla
County Master Gardener Bill Petty.
Today's column is adapted from an
article written by Bill. He's an
expert, has published articles in the
Mushroom Journal and maintains
a website, Florida Fungi. I have


adapted his article for local use.
First and foremost, DO NOT
EAT WILD MUSHROOMS unless
you are ABSOLUTELY sure you
have identified the mushroom cor-
rectly and KNOW that it is edible.
Many common mushrooms are
poisonous, and a brief newspaper
article cannot give enough infor-
mation to allow you to identify edi-
bles with certainty.
Mushroom identification is not
a casual affair: you must acquire
several good field guides, and regu-
larly go out to collect and identify
them. Then, maybe in a few years,
you will have enough confidence
to know that fungi.
The beautiful white Destroying
Angel mushroom (Amanita virosa)
is deadly poisonous, but it is related
to an edible species. Since the
deadly one is common in our area,
leave any suspect mushroom in
the ground. Study the genus
Amanita well, and do not eat any
from that group until you have
studied it for several years.
Better yet, consult an expert to
confirm your identification of this
mushroom. If you do decide to try
eating wild mushrooms, only try
one species at a time. And be sure
to save a whole mushroom of any
that you eat in case the poison con-


trol center needs an example to
identify. Our Extension office can
also send photos or actual speci-
mens to UF/IFAS Mycologist Dr.
James Kimbrough, who can identi-
fy them.
As to lawn damage by mush-
rooms, they rarely cause landscape
problems. Most lawn mushrooms
are fungi that feed on decompos-
ing grass clippings. Sometimes
mulch that is kept too wet can also
host a crop of these decomposers.
Rather than trying to kill mush-
rooms by using expensive fungi-
cides, enjoy their beauty and toss
them in the compost pile once they
are past their prime. If you don't
like their looks, you can always
mow them down, but they will
keep coming back. Another trick is
to reduce the amount of water
added to the landscape, which will
discourage their growth.
The most common lawn mush-
room is the green-gilled Lepiota.
Also known as the Parasol or Fairy
ring mushroom, the scientific
name was changed to Chlorophyl-
lum molybdites about thirty years
ago. (The name Lepiota morgani
appears in old books or posters).
These are large whitish mush-
rooms (four or five inches across
the cap) with reddish-tan scales on


the cap. The center of the cap will
have dense scales, which become
sparser toward the edge. The stem
is three to five inches long, with a
ring annuluss) around it near the
top. The ring is easy to move up
and down the stalk, and the cap
breaks easily from the stem.
To be certain of mushroom
identification, scientists make
spore prints. Place the cap on a
piece of white paper and cover it
with an up-side down bowl for a
few hours. Dust-like spores will fall
from the gills onto the paper, leav-
ing a print that looks like the under-
side of the mushroom's gills. Wash
your hands well after handling.
After the print is thoroughly dry, it
can be sprayed with a clear lacquer
and framed.
If the color of the spore print is a
light grayish-green, chances are
good those local lawn mushrooms
are the poisonous fairy ring mush-
room. Do not eat even one bite or
you will be sick (at both ends) for
three days. I know of no deaths as a
result of eating this mushroom, but
it does cause severe gastrointesti-
nal upset. (Note from Dan: fatal
reports of pets eating these mush-
rooms do exist!)
The term toadstool is thought to
indicate that mushrooms are poi-


sonous, but there are instances of
certain edible mushrooms are
called toadstools. And besides, few
toadstools could hold a hefty Buffo
toad.
Fairy Rings are another term
associated with mushrooms. Often
lawn fungi erupt in a circular pat-
tern as a result of an ever widening
ring of these soil-based fungi.
There is folklore associated with
Fairy rings, with predictions of
either dire consequences or good
luck.
Golf course attendants don't
like Fairy rings. Not only do the
mushrooms present an obstacle to
the rolling golf ball, but the ring can
also show either a circular pattern
of dark green very thick growth or
a circle of dead grass. There are
fungicides (e.g. HeritageTM) that
can suppress fairy rings, but they
are expensive.
The common edible mush-
room does not grow in the wild; it
comes only from special controlled
environment grow houses. There
are a number of other specialty
mushrooms that are found in the
produce section of the supermar-
ket. For example, the Shitake
mushroom is cultivated in areas of
Florida that have the right kind of
hardwood logs to support its pro-


duction.
There are some edible wild
mushrooms out there, but unless
you take the time to study them
carefully, that special meal may be
followed to a trip to the hospital if
the wrong ones are consumed. I
recommend Bill Petty's Web site,
Florida Fungi, or Dr. Kimbrough's
book, Common Florida Mush-
rooms, if you want to learn more
about these natural treasures from
your Florida Yard.

tact our office at (863) 763-6469 if

Animal imports restricted due to concerns about disease


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son announced on Aug. 22, the
placement of restrictions on the
importation of animals from
states affected with Vesicular
Stomatitis following a confirmed
case in Wyoming, the first such
case reported in the United
States this year.
Vesicular Stomatitis is a highly


contagious, viral disease that
affects horses, cattle, swine and
occasionally sheep, goats and
deer. The virus can also cause
flu-like symptoms in people
working with infected animals.
Signs of Vesicular Stomatitis
include blister-like lesions in the
mouth, on the tongue, lips, nos-
trils, hooves and teats. While the
virus is rarely fatal, it does result
in significant weight loss and


milk production loss. It is also dif-
ficult to distinguish between this
virus and foot and mouth dis-
ease, a devastating livestock dis-
ease found outside the United
States. States and other countries
often impose movement restric-
tions on animals from Vesicular
Stomatitis affected areas.
The USDA National Veterinary
Services Laboratories has con-
firmed the finding of a positive


horse, with clinical signs on a
ranch in Natrona County, Wy.
"I'm pleased to see that
Wyoming has taken immediate
action to hold animals on the
affected premises," Commission-
er Bronson said, but the possi-
bility that this disease could be in
other areas makes it imperative
that we have rules in place to
prevent the disease from being
imported into Florida."


Florida requires veterinary
inspection of susceptible animals
coming from states affected with
Vesicular Stomatitis. Hoofed ani-
mals entering Florida from
Wyoming will require prior per-
mission for entry and must be
accompanied by an official cer-
tificate of veterinary inspection.
The certificate of veterinary
inspection must state that the
animals are free of clinical signs


of Vesicular Stomatitis and have
not been exposed nor located
within 10 miles of a positive
premises, within the previous 30
days. In addition, any hoofed
livestock from states that are
affected with Vesicular Stomatitis
are required to have documenta-
tion to show they have been test-
ed and found negative within 10
days of movement to Florida.

Tigers roar past American Heritage


The Clewiston Tigers got
their season and new Coach
Larry Antonacci's tenure off to
rousing starts on Saturday night
as they traveled to Plantation
and impressively defeated the
American Heritage Patriots by a
score of 31-14. The Tigers
unleashed a solid rushing and
passing offense and got a stellar
performance from their defen-
sive team.
From the outset, the Tigers
moved the ball at will on the
ground with senior tailback
Jamal Hubert leading the way
behind his offensive line. But,
their two offensive drives ate up
most of the first period ended on
downs and an interception in
the end zone. The Patriot
offense was stifled by the Tiger
defense and only managed five
snaps and 10 yards rushing for
the period.
Early in the second period,
the Tiger defense forced a Patri-
ot punt.
Jasper Hunter snatched up
the ball and turned up field for
29 yards putting the Tiger
offense in business at the Patriot
38. Hubert carried the load with
three carries on the drive for 24
yards, getting the touchdown on
an 11-yard blast up the middle.
Tight end Kale Mitchell also
pulled in a 20 yard pass from
Jared Combass to keep the drive
alive.
The score came with 6:39 left
in the half and Combass' extra
point attempt was off the mark.
The Tiger defense wasted no
time in getting the ball back for
the offense when cornerback
Omar Smith snared a Patriot
pass and streaked 37 yards
down the sideline before being
forced out at the nine yard line.
Hubert then carried twice to the
six but lost the ball on his third
attempt with the Patriots' recov-
ering at their two. On the second
snap, Patriot running back Tay-


lor Atwood went off his left tack-
le and three Tiger defenders
stymied him. But Atwood
regained his balance using his
hand on the turf, righted himself
and streaked 96 yards to score.
The point after kick was perfect
to put American Heritage on top,
7-6. The Tigers started another
drive but quickly lost the ball
when Combass' screen pass
bounced off Hubert's fingertips
into the hands of Patriot defend-
er Brandon Hando. From the
Tiger 31, the Pats could not
move the ball and Tyler Mosko's
37-yard field goal attempt never
had a chance.
Clewiston kicked off to begin
the second half and held the
Patriots and forcing a punt.
The Tigers unveiled their
spread formation and Hubert
knocked off 7 and 13 yards in
consecutive runs. Then Com-
bass dropped back and hooked
up with flanker Sim Putnam on a
post pattern. Putnam hauled in
the ball about 20 yards down-
field and raced for a 40-yard
touchdown. The Tigers attempt-
ed a pass for the conversion and
Combass hit Delvin Hughes in
the flats but he was tackled
before reaching the goal. After
shutting down the Patriots'
offense again, the Tiger offense
began at midfield. On the first
play, Combass again found Put-
nam on the same pattern and
threaded the needle for a 52-
yard score. The point after kick
was wide left. Another tough
series for the Tiger defense and a
short Patriot punt put the ball
back in the hands of the offense
at the American Heritage 38.
Again, Combass called the
same post pattern pass play and
connected with Jasper Hunter
for the score. It was an impres-
sive quarter for the Tigers who
scored three touchdowns on
only six offensive snaps and salt-
ed the game away, leading 24-7


as they entered the final period.
The Patriots scored on the
first play of the fourth period
when quarterback Nick Hicks
sneaked in from a yard out.
Hicks had connected on two
long passes of 41 and 33 yards to
set up the score. Mosko's point
after split the uprights closing
the gap to 24-14. The Tigers
added their final score on an 8-
play drive covering 60 yards.
Backup tailback Collin Rick-
ets had runs of 11 and 19 yards
before getting the final 4 for the
score. Jared Combass then con-
verted the extra point to close
out the scoring.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
was pleased with his squad's
focus and attitude. After the
game, he said "We made some
first half mistakes and we made
adjustments at half time.
We came out with a more
open offense, going to the
spread formation.
Our 0-line did a good job all
night opening holes for Jamal
Hubert. With Jamal, you just
give him the ball and watch."
Antonacci was also complimen-
tary of the defensive perform-
ance saying, "They pretty much
stuffed the opponents all night
and they were aggressive and
moved to the ball as a unit." The
defense was hard hitting and not
flagged during the entire game.
Hubert led Tiger runners with
136 yards in 22 attempts and he
added 38 yards on two punt
returns along with a 15 yard pass
reception. The Tiger defense
was tenacious and hard hitting,
led by defensive end Delvin
Hughes and linebacker David
Pope. Absent the Patriot's 96
yard score on a strange play, the
defense held them to only 57
yards in 34 tries.
Pope suffered a knee injury
late in the game and might be
out for a game or two if it is a
deep bruise.


If tests reveal ligament dam-
age, he could be lost for the sea-
son. The Tiger point after kick-
ing game did not get off to a
good start, converting only one
of four attempts. However, Con-
bass only missed six extra points
in the entire last season so that
facet of the Tiger game should
come around. In 2005, Combass
converted 16 of 22 point after
attempts.
On Friday night, the Tigers
will entertain the LaBelle Cow-
boys in the tussle for the Hendry
County Championship.
