Weathering the storm: HRMC bands together


Submitted to INI/Glenda Wilson
Joe Greno and David McClusky seemed to entertain themselves while entertaining the
children during their stay at the hospital for Tropical Storm Ernesto. The two played.
songs and sang heartily to keep the children happy.


HRMC fares well in the storm


By Nicole Curny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Even though
Tropical Storm Ernesto only
brought a few inches of rain and
the occasional wind gusts to
Clewiston, it could have been
much worse.
No matter the size of the
event, or the likelihood that a
storm will eventually die out,
the staff at Hendry Regional
Medical Center said it stands
ready to respond in all emer-
gencies.
Teams at the hospital were
established so that all the vari-
ous medical departments were
covered during the storm.
As early as that Monday, the
staff at HRMC prepared for
Ernesto. After word from
Hendry County Emergency
Operations Center came that
Florida was declared a state of
emergency, the staff at the hos-
pital began to act on their prepa-
rations.
George Johnson, Quality
Director, became the Incident
Commander. As safety officer in
the hospital, he has been trained
to prepare for emergency situa-
tions and was ready to lead the
hospital through the storm.


"Being new in town and not having witnessed
this situation before, I was very impressed at
how well Hendry Regional Medical Center
prepared for this storm."
Mr. Johnson


The physician on duty, Dr.
Walter Mitta, was appointed the
Medical Staff Officer, and Glenda
Wilson, Marketing/Foundation
Director, became the Patient
Information Officer. Other per-
sonnel members in the facility
were assigned roles within the
Emergency Incident Command
System.
Hendry Regional Medical
Center was able to care for the
special needs patients in the
hospital without having to trans-
port anyone to another hospital.
The emergency room was open
and had many admissions dur-
ing the night.
With the staff stationed at the
hospital, their families were
allowed to stay at the hospital.
For children, being in a hospital
is not something to look for-
ward to, so staff kept them
entertained until the storm had
passed.


David McClusky and other
employees kept the kids occu-
pied-they popped popcorn
and settled in to watch movies.
The kids listened to songs and
played games into the night.
Throughout the storm a
medical team was always on
hand. After preparing for
Ernesto, the team of emergency
advisors readied relief teams to
be at the hospital during the
possible aftermath of the storm,
just in case Tropical Storm
Ernesto did major damage to
the city.
"Being new in town and not
having witnessed this situation
before, I was very impressed at
how well Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center prepared for this
storm," said Mr. Johnson. "An
excellent group effort was made
by hospital staff to prepare and
maintain the hospital's normal
operations during this storm."


In the gubernatorial candi-
date races, Hendry Democrats
preferred Rod Smith while
Republicans hoped Charlie Crist
would be their candidate in the
November General Election.
According to the Florida
Supervisor of Elections Web
site, Hendry County voters break
down by race as: 10,413 white;


2,140 black;
2,999 other.
The Gener-
al Election will
be Tuesday,

election will

PORT LABELLE The
Hendry County Sheriff's
Office made a sizable bust last
week, putting a stop to two
marijuana grow houses with a
one-two punch that officials
are hoping will put a dent in
the drug activity in the area.
Though the bust happened
in LaBelle, it is possible that
the narcotics at the grow
houses may have made their
way to the Clewiston area,
according to deputies.
The sheriff's office discov-
ered a grow house on Aug. 29


at 832 Sherwood Circle in Port
LaBelle after an "intensive
investigation," according to a
press release from the law
enforcement agency.
The sheriff's office worked
closely with the Drug Enforce-
ment Agency (DEA) on the
investigation, which also took
the agencies to another grow
house, also in Port LaBelle, on
the same day.
The first house contained
an undisclosed amount of
marijuana plants that were
being carefully cultivated

Ernesto just



a distraction


By Nicole Cuny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Watching
local weather stations last
week put residents on edge as
Tropical Storm Ernesto inched
his way across the Atlantic
Ocean and moved closer to
Florida.
Meteorologists placed Lake
Okeechobee and its surround-
ing towns right in the middle of
Ernesto's projected path.
With images of the damage
from Hurricane Wilma fresh
on their minds, people were
insistent on preparing for
Ernesto.
Cars were lined up at the
pumps of gas stations; the
shelves of grocery stores
where batteries, water, and


canned food had once been
were starting to look bare.
Windows of local homes
and businesses were boarded
up and generators were
brought out of storage.
Schools closed down and
became temporary shelters.
The billboard signs running
along U.S. 27 were taken
down, and canals were
drained.
For days until the storm hit,
people seemed to be anxiously
awaiting the approaching
Ernesto.
As the news stations
tracked Ernesto's every move,
residents watched, waiting for
Ernesto to unleash his fury on
the area.

Emergency agencies


report no problems


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
.CLEWISTON- Law enforce-
ment and emergency operation
agencies prepared early to meet
Tropical Storm Ernesto. After
learning from last year's hurri-
cane plan, the agencies were
ready to deal with the storm
event.
"After last year's Hurricane
Wilma, many things were taken
into consideration and prepara-
tions were handled differently,"
Clewiston Police Chief Don Gut-
shall said, referring to last year's
response.
One of the differences from
last year, he said, was keeping a
full force on duty to avoid short-
ages in manpower.
"We put all of the officers on
Tuesday with no leave time," the
chiefsaid.


According to Gutshall, person-
nel were divided into two shifts,
one starting duty at 6 a.m., the
other at 6 p.m. to make two 12-
hour shifts. The arrangement
continued until midnight on
Wednesday, when it seemed that
the threat of a hurricane had dis-
appeared.
Unlike last year, polices offi-
cers used trucks, instead of
sedans, to maneuver through the
roads, and officers came pre-
pared to work four days of contin-
uous duty, if necessary.
"We took more precautions
this time," said Chief Gutshall.
"Everything ran smoothly."
Meanwhile, at the Hendry
County Emergency Management
Center, workers finished last-
minute preparations to help the

Thanks to the efforts of Council
Member Paul Marro, the Knights
of Columbus Palm Beach Gar-
dens Council No. 6988 has insti-
tuted a new charitable endeavor
to support the "SHARE" (Self-
Help and Resource Exchange)
Program at The Cathedral of St.
Ignatius Loyola. The Council pur-
chases "SHARE" food packages
through donations received by
the Council. The food packages
are then distributed on a monthly
basis to migrant workers in need
in coordination with Rev. John
Mericantante, Pastor of St. Mary's
Catholic Church in Pahokee.
"SHARE" is a non-profit food
program that operates much like
a cooperative buying club. There
are no income requirements.
Anyone can purchase food, on a
monthly basis, as often as they
wish, with a minimum purchase
of $18. There are no limitations
on the number of purchases.
Each food package is priced at
$18 and contains approximately
$40 worth of food. The food is the
same quality found in grocery
stores.
The common goal of the pro-
gram is to make food more
affordable to everyone and to

Answer: Hello Juan. This is a
great question considering all
the recent storms. Dogs are very
sensitive to changes in baromet-
ric pressure. Usually before we
see signs of an upcoming storm,
barometric pressure drops ...
And dogs pick up on this. Some
people with very sensitive sinus
problems can feel this change in
pressure too.
Hope that answers your ques-
tion Juan.
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Po strain on dike,
o major change
1n water level

SBy Pete Gawda
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE Just
Sas the effects of Tropical Depres-
Ssion Ernesto did not cause the
anticipated local flooding, as
expected, it did not raise lake
levels significantly or cause any
strain on the Herbert Hoover
Dike.
According to Vernon Gray,
manager of the Okeechobee
County Airport, the airport
received 1.94 inches of rain from
Ernesto. The county's drainage
system was easily able to handle
that amount of rain without the
widespread flooding that was
experienced last year.
The peak wind recorded was
a 30 mile per hour gust.
Mr. Gray stated that the cen-
ter of Ernesto passed over Okee-
chobee between 3 and 4 p.m. At
3 p.m., the winds were from the
northeast and at 4 p.m. the
winds were from the west.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE), in a press release
dated Aug. 30, stated that Lake
Okeechobee would likely rise


no more than three inches as a
result of Tropical Depression
Ernesto.
"This news is very good
because, while the central part
of Florida received much need-
ed rain, Ernesto did not cause a
significant increase in Lake
Okeechobee's water level," said
Colonel Paul L. Grosskruger,
Jacksonville district command-
er. "With about half of the 2006
hurricane season still before us,
we remain confident in the con-
tinuing protection provided by
Herbert Hoover Dike."
"We did not foresee any
problems and we found none,"
said Jim Jeffords, COE opera-
tions manager for the Jack-
sonville District said in the same
press release after the comple-
tion of a "windshield tour" of
the dike between Clewiston and
Port Mayaca on Wednesday,
Aug. 30.
According to South Florida
Water Management's figures,
the lake only rose two hun-
dredths of an inch during the 24-
hour period between midnight
Tuesday Aug. 29 and midnight
Wednesday, Aug. 30.
The current lake level is 12.16
feet, which is well below the 18-
foot danger level. It is also well
below what it was a year ago at
15.73 and two years ago at


13.51.
Benita Whalen, director of
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District's Okeechobee field
office, said it would be difficult
to predict how much rain over
the Kissimmee River basin and
Fisheating Creek would con-
tribute to the level of the lake.
She said that the soil was
extremely dry and would absorb
a lot of rain. She added that even
though areas to the west got
more rain, the central and east-
ern parts of the state actually
needed moisture.
Ms. Whalen said that before
the storm, water levels in this
area were low and Ernesto's
rains got the water levels up to
where they should be this time
of year. She said the tropical
depression provided much
needed rain for crops.
Ms. Whalen added that they
had no indication that the COE
would initiate pulse releases
into the St. Lucie Canal and the
Caloosahatchee River to lower
the lake level.

Management District reported
that navigation locks on Lake

Florida's Workforce


Training programs


TALLAHASSEE Florida ranks
among the top 10 states with the
best workforce training programs,
according to a recently released
poll by Expansion Management
magazine.
"Florida's programs have been
business driven from the start,"
says Katherine Wilson, Chairman
of Workforce Florida, Inc. "That
means our training incentives con-
tinually evolve to ensure they effec-
tively address a business's need for
timely, customized training using
different, and sometimes non-tradi-
tional, methods."
In an article that appears in the
July/August issue of the national
business publication, Florida is
ranked No. 10 for the overall quality
of its workforce training incentive
programs. More than 80 corporate
site consultants were polled by the
magazine. Alabama was ranked
No. 1.
Florida's Quick Response Train-
ing (QRT) and Incumbent Worker
Training (IWT) grant programs
were major contributors to the
state's high ranking. Both pro-
grams are directed by Workforce
Florida, Inc., and aimed at improv-
ing workers' skills and the competi-
tiveness of Florida businesses.
The QRT program provides


State grant boosts three of its workforce programs


LAKE WORTH Palm Beach
Community College has received
almost half a million dollars to
address critical workforce short-
ages in the county from the state
Department of Education
through the SUCCEED, Florida!
Career Education Grants. PBCC
programs were allotted:
$226,189 for a Paramedic to
RN Transition program; $105,383
for a bilingual Child Develop-
ment Associate (CDA) program,
and $151,000 for the Teacher Cer-
tification program.
"PBCC has led the state in
Innovative programs. The Col-
lege's child care ESOL is one-of-
a-kind, and the entire teacher
education statewide community
college initiative started here,"
said C.B. Wohl, grants develop-
ment manager:


The Paramedic to RN Transi-
tion program is a new initiative
that will allow paramedics want-
ing to become registered nurses
to advance place into the third
semester of the nursing program.
PBCC nursing program person-
nel will use the fall semester to
develop a bridge program where
paramedics will gain first-year
skills and knowledge, modeled
after the successful practical
nursing to registered nursing (PN
to RN) program, and the bridge
course be offered in January
2007.
"Registered nurses who were
paramedics are in high demand
in the county," said Jacqueline
Rogers, dean of health sciences
and occupational education.
".The county fire-rescue
department requires Trauma


Hawk flight paramedics to also
be registered nurses, and hospi-
tals report that RNs with para-
medic backgrounds are ideal to
staff their emergency rooms,"
Ms. Rogers said.
The new, hybrid Child Devel-
opment Associate course child
care professors will develop with
this year's funding will pave the
way for Spanish-speaking child
care workers to continue their
education.
"In the past, the CDA creden-
tial has only been taught in Eng-
lish at PBCC, but for those who
don't speak English.well, this can
make achieving this credential
more difficult," said Sheila Scott-
Lubin, manager early childhood
education and K-12 program.
The new bilingual CDA class
will have an ESOL (English for


Speakers of Other Languages)
component, which will help those
professionals advance toward
one of PBCC's degree programs.
"CDAs are in high demand in
Florida, she said, because state
law requires lead teachers in vol-
untary pre-kindergarten to have
the CDA credential. PBCC's child
care courses for Spanish speak-
ers are always full," Scott-Lubin
said.
The new grant funding for the
teacher certification program will
allow PBCC to continue to help
professionals with bachelor's
degrees to become teachers. The
one-year academic course work
includes seven courses and two
field experiences taught by
adjunct professors with K-12
teaching experience.
"The courses help partici-


pants gain competencies in areas
such as classroom management,
instructional strategies and tech-
nology, said Susan Caldwell,
associate dean of academic
affairs. The new funding will also
help train program professors to
develop Web components for
their classes and attend profes-
sional development workshops.
Grant funds also will be used to
purchase laptops for the class-
rooms and to refine the curricu-
lum," Ms. Caldwell said.
"State funding of PBCC's SUC-
CEED projects allows the college
to address some of the most criti-
cal workforce needs in Palm
Beach County and is indicative of
the Department of Education's
confidence in our ability to carry
out these model programs," said
PBCC President Dennis Gallon.


grants for customized skills training
for new Florida businesses or exist-
ing companies that are expanding.
Since its inception in 1993, the pro-
gram has pumped more than $60
million into new skills develop-
ment targeting about 100,000
workers.
Started in 1999, the IWT pro-
gram reimburses existing Florida
businesses for costs associated
with upgrading the skills of their
full-time employees. It has directed
about $14 million to improving the
skills of more than 65,000 workers
at 593 businesses.
"Workforce training incentives
clearly have a direct impact on the
competitiveness of a state," says
Ken Krizner, Managing Editor of
Expansion Management. "Florida's
top 10 ranking is a testament to its
ability to provide companies with a
well-trained, highly skilled work-
force."
According to the magazine,
"Programs are judged not only in
terms of their financial value, but
also in terms of ease of usage and
applicability. In other words, some
programs may have a high value in
theory, but are of little practical use-
to most companies. Likewise,
some programs may be both use-
ful and valuable but are so
wrapped up in red tape require-
ments that they are extremely diffi-
cult to actually use."
This is the eighth year the maga-
zine has published the workforce
training programs ranking and the
first time Florida has made it into
the top 10. In 2000 and 2002, Flori-
da was ranked No. 15. Expansion
Management circulates to 45,000
executives, including CEOs and
economic development leaders.
In addition to the state adminis-
tered Quick Response Training and
Incumbent Worker Training pro-
grams, businesses also can access
local training programs and grants
provided by Florida's 24 regional
workforce boards. For more infor-
mation on state and local work-
force programs and services, go to

Heavy equipment



operator training


HENDRY COUNTY To
increase the availability of qual-
ified local workers needed to
build a water storage reservoir
on the Caloosahatchee River,
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District has hired a
contractor to train and certify
heavy equipment operators.
The South Florida Water
Management District signed a
two-year, $550,000 contract
with The Education Center of
Southwest Florida to develop
and coordinate a series of
classes awarding certifications
in heavy equipment safety and
operation.
The first of the five-week
class sessions began Monday,
Aug. 28 in LaBelle, near a con-
struction site for the massive C-
43 West Reservoir in Hendry
County. The second class is
scheduled to begin Oct. 2.
Qualified applicants can attend
the local courses at' no cost,
their tuition paid through the
District contract with the edu-
cation center.
This educational program
reflects the District's commit-
ment to working with local
businesses and supporting
local workforce development.
Through this program, 40 to
80 workers from the Clewiston,
LaBelle and Moore Haven
areas will receive training this


year. Contractors will have the
opportunity to hire locals
skilled in operating tractors,
backhoes, off-road dump
trucks, excavators, graders and
other heavy machinery to work
at District project sites. All are
needed to complete the reser-
voir, and graduates can earn
$12 to $15 an hour to start.
Workers are needed
through 2010, when the C-43
(Caloosahatchee River) West
Reservoir will be completed. It
will have water storage capaci-
ty of about 170,000 acre-feet
and range in depths from 12-26
feet.
The reservoir is a critical
component of Acceler8, eight
Everglades restoration projects
on the fast track for funding,
design and construction.
Announced by Governor Jeb
Bush in October 2004, the proj-
ects will restore 100,000 acres
of wetlands, expand water
treatment areas by close to
29,000 acres and provide
428,000 acre-feet of additional
water storage for Everglades'
restoration a decade ahead of
schedule.
For information about
applying for the program, call
Sonny Hughes at The Educa-
tion Center of Southwest Flori-
da, (863)675-6800.

County awards mosquito contract


LABELLE -- The Hendry
County Board of County Com-
missioners has awarded Clarke
Mosquito Control, the country's
largest mosquito control
provider, a long-term contract to
implement comprehensive sur-
veillance and mosquito control
services for the citizens of
Hendry County.
"This agreement provides a
cost savings to the County, and
allows us to expand and
improve our mosquito control
services moving forward," said
Lester Baird, County Administra-
tor. "With more than 60 years of
mosquito control experience,
Clarke has the right combination


of assets and expertise to do the
best job for Hendry County."
Clarke plans to implement an
integrated mosquito control pro-
gram that will provide surveil-
lance of the mosquito popula-
tion, larval control, adult
mosquito control utilizing aerial
spraying and increased truck
spraying. Clarke will also pro-
vide public education on mos-
quito-borne disease prevention
(such as West Nile Virus) and
information on how Hendry
County residents can help pre-
vent mosquito breeding in their
own yards.
Beginning Sept, 1, the public
is encouraged to call Clarke's


Hendry County "Mosquito Hot-
line" at (800) 203-6485 to report
heavy mosquito annoyance.
In addition to the County's
mosquito control efforts, resi-
dents can take a number of steps
to reduce mosquito populations
around their homes this sum-
mer, including:
Remove or empty water in
old tires, tin cans, buckets,
drums, bottles or other places
where mosquitoes might breed.
Empty plastic wading pools
at least once a week and store
indoors when not in use. If
unused, drain swimming pools
and keep dry.
Change water weekly in


bird baths, plant saucers a
trays.
Store boats covered ,
upside down.
Water bowls used by pet'S-'
should be emptied and relill'-.,
daily.
Fill holes around home thai
may retain water.
Keep gutters around home
in good repair to avoid water .
build-up.
Keep weeds and grass cut
short, as adult mosquitoes look
for shady places to rest during
hot daylight hours.
Be sure screens in homes
are intact and tight-fitting to pre-
vent entry of insects.


Florida job picture Community News in Brief


is looking DositiVe voluteers needed


TALLAHASSEE Very low
levels of unemployment, strong
job growth and high worker
confidence is the good news for
Florida this Labor Day.
A Labor Day 2006 snapshot of
the job market in Florida
released by Linda H. South,
Director of Florida's Agency for
Workforce Innovation, shows
that Florida's workforce is brim-
ming with confidence and
showing strong signs of employ-
ment growth.
Florida's employment and

unemployment report for July
2006 showed the state's unem-
ployment rate at 3.3 percent,
nearly a historical low and well
below the national unemploy-
ment rate of 4.8 percent.
At the same time, Florida
remains the job creation leader
for the nation, leading all states
in the number of jobs created
over the past year and ahead of
the 10 most populous states in
the rate of growth. Out of a civil-
ian labor force of 8.9 million,
there were only 292,000 unem-
ployed Floridians.
The Labor Day 2006 snapshot
shows that Florida has seen
steady growth not just in the
number of new jobs but also in
the quality of those jobs. Profes-
sional and business services and
construction industries account-
ed for 46 percent of the new jobs
in the state over the year. Both
sectors have above-average pay-
ing jobs.
"These findings illustrate the
resilience of Florida's economy
and also show that employment
opportunities in Florida are at an
all-time high," South said.
"Floridians continue to reap the
benefits of a productive job mar-
ket and competitive business cli-
mate."
Worker confidence
also up
The most recent monthly sur-
vey by the workforce firm Hud-
son adds to the positive outlook
Florida's Labor Day job
picture for Florida's
economy
The Hudson Employment
Index, a monthly measure of
U.S. worker confidence in the
employment market notes that
worker confidence in Florida
has improved by 4.4 points, to
122.3, the second-highest read-
ing in the nation.
The Hudson Index tracks
trends in career opportunities,
hiring intentions, job satisfaction
and retention. A drop in expect-
ed lay-offs coupled with
increased optimism about per-
sonal finances, the report notes,
spurred the rise in Florida's
worker confidence level. The
state's 122.3 confidence level
rating is well above last year's


August rating of 110.9 and signif-
icantly higher than the national
rate of 102.9.
The Hudson Employment
Index tracks worker sentiment
in eight states. Florida's Index
(122.3) came in among the
strongest, topped only by Texas
(126.5). New York fell to the low-
est with 88.8.
Among the nation's 11 largest
cities, Tampa ranked third in
worker confidence. For the sec-
ond consecutive month, confi-
dence increased in Tampa, gain-
ing 2.3 points to register 121 in
August.
Wages keeping pace
with inflation
With energy and housing
prices coming down from high
levels, concerns about inflation
have naturally surfaced. Despite
higher inflation in 2004 and
2005, average earnings of Flori-
da's workers stayed ahead of
inflation between 1999 and
2005.
Average real earnings grew
by 9.4 percent from 1999 to 2005
according to AWI's Labor Mar-
ket Statistics.
Real earnings (adjusted for
inflation) increased by slightly
over 1.5 percent each year
between 1999 and 2005. The
highest annual changes in real
earnings were in 2002 (+1.8
percent) and 2004 (+2.4 per-
cent), with the lowest annual
change in 2005 (+0.8 percent).
The continued growth of higher
income jobs in construction,
professional and business serv-
ices, and other industries helped
keep Florida's wage and salary
worker's incomes ahead of the
inflation rate from 1999-2005.
The U.S. Census Bureau also
released data this week showing
that inflation-adjusted real fami-
ly income in Florida increased
by two percent in the two-year
period between 2003 and 2005.
The Agency for Workforce
Innovation is the lead state
workforce agency and directly
administers the state's Labor
Market Statistics program,
Unemployment Compensation;
Early Learning and various
workforce development pro-
grams. The Office of Early Learn-
ing, a division within the agency,
provides oversight of Florida's
school readiness programs and
is the lead entity for implement-
ing the state's successful Volun-
tary Pre-kindergarten program.
Workforce development poli-
cy and guidance in Florida is
provided by Workforce Florida,
Inc. Workforce Florida and the
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion are partners in the Employ
Florida network which includes
24 Regional Workforce Boards
who deliver services through
nearly 100 One-Stop Career Cen-
ters around the state.

TALLAHASSEE Education
Commissioner John L. Winn has
encouraged students throughout
Florida to start their day with a
healthy breakfast. The Depart-
ment of Education's "Excellence
Begins with Breakfast" campaign
encourages schools and students
to participate in school breakfast
programs.
"The beginning of a new year is
a great opportunity for schools to
launch the school breakfast pro-
gram," said Commissioner Winn.


"Research shows that breakfast is
the most important meal of the
day. There is a clear link between
eating a healthy breakfast and
being ready to learn."
Research shows that children
who eat breakfast have improved
memory, problem-solving skills,
verbal fluency and creative abilities.
Studies also suggest that skipping
breakfast contributes to obesity,
particularly among adolescents.
Traditional meals served in the
school cafeteria are still the most


popular. However, many schools
are now reaching out to provide
meals in new ways such as offer-
ing breakfast in the classroom or
"grab-n-go" meals from moving
carts or kiosks. All are convenient,
quick ways to ensure students
enjoy a nutritious, balanced
breakfast and start their day on
the right foot.
All public elementary and
many secondary schools in Flori-
da offer a school breakfast pro-
gram with nutritious foods to all


students. Students who qualify for
free or reduced price lunches also
qualify for free or reduced price
breakfast. In Florida, approxi-
mately 500,000 school breakfast
meals are served to students as
part of the U.S. Department of
Agriculture's School Breakfast
Program.

School Breakfast Program, visit

Record number of Florida students testing


TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush and Education Commis-
sioner John L. Winn announced
record numbers of Florida stu-
dents are taking the Scholastic
Aptitude Test (SAT) and Advanced
Placement (AP) exams. More
than 94,601 of Florida's 2006 high
school graduates took the SAT,
representing 63 percent of the
total number of high school grad-
uates. This is the largest number
of Florida students to ever take the
SAT. Additionally, Florida saw the
greatest increase in public school
AP exam-takers compared to all
other states from 2005 to 2006.
"Florida's high school students
know that taking rigorous course-
work and college entrance exams
help prepare them for the chal-
lenges of college and the work-
force," said Governor Bush.
"Through our partnership with
the College Board and the new
reforms in the A+ + Plan for Edu-
cation, we are preparing students
for success during and following
high school."
The most noteworthy increase
in the number of Florida students
taking the SAT is among minority
students. Overall, minority stu-
dent participation has increased
from 39 percent in 1999 to 44 per-
cent in 2006. Nationwide, the per-
centage of minority test-takers
has increased, but at a slower
rate than in Florida. In Florida,
African-American students com-
prise 14 percent of the test takers,
compared to 11 percent nation-
wide. Hispanic students in Flori-
da comprise 21 percent of the
test-takers, compared to 11 per-
cent nationwide.
"It is gratifying that more stu-
dents are taking the SAT, as well
as other college entrance exams
and AP courses," said Commis-
sioner Winn. "That is why high
school reform is critical to


"It is gratifying that more students are taking the
SAT, as well as other college entrance exams and
AP courses. That is why high school reform is crit-
ical to keep up with student aspirations by bet-
ter preparing them to be successful in the future."
John L. Winn,
Education Commissioner


keep up with student aspirations
by better preparing them to be
successful in the future."
While Florida student partici-
pation in the SAT is climbing, the
average score is down three
points from 2005. An increase in
the number of test takers usually
results in lower scores. Scores
were down two points on the
reading portion and one point on
the math portion. Nationally,
there was a drop in the scores
from last year more so than in
Florida. This year, scores were
down five points on the reading
portion and two points on the
math portion.
On AP exams, Florida's stu-
dents continue to excel in partici-
pation and performance. Since
1999, the number of AP exam-tak-
ers in Florida's public schools has
increased 162 percent. The Sun-
shine State has the second great-
est increase in public school AP
exam-takers, compared to all
other states from 2005-06 and the
fourth largest increase among all
states in the number of students
passing (receiving grades of 3-5)
AP exams. The number of
African-American students partic-
ipating has increased 239 percent
and the number of Hispanic stu-
dents participating has increased
230 percent since 1999. Florida
leads the nation with the largest
number of African-American stu-


dents taking AP exams and pass-
ing them.
"Florida public school stu-
dents continue to excel in AP par-
ticipation and success, especially
among historically underserved
groups," said College Board Presi-
dent Gaston Caperton. "There is a
clear commitment by Governor
Bush, Commissioner Winn, and
the Florida Legislature to ensure
that all Florida students are given
the best opportunities so that they
are prepared to go to and succeed
in college."
Additionally, the number of
Florida public school tenth
graders taking the Preliminary
SAT/National Merit Scholarship
Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT),
which is offered free-of-charge to
all Florida tenth graders,
increased 4.5 percent from 2004
to 2005. Again, the most signifi-
cant increase was among Hispan-
ic students, with the number of
Hispanic tenth-grade test-takers
increasing by 19 percent. For the
time period 1999-2005, the num-
ber of Hispanic PSAT test takers
increased by 636 percent.
The SAT is a voluntary college
entrance exam. SAT scores can be
used for admission to a state uni-
versity meeting qualifications for
the Bright Futures Scholarship
Program or for placement into
regular college courses. Students
now have access to information

Bush applauds new 'EXCELerator' Road Watch


JACKSONVILLE Governor
Jeb Bush applauded the College
Board's national education reform
efforts to ensure more students
graduate from high school ready
for college and the workforce. The
College Board announced today
that Duval County was selected as
one of the first school districts in the
nation to participate in the innova-
tive "EXCELerator" Schools pro-
gram. Through a $16 million invest-
ment from the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation, the College
Board will complement its promis-
ing school development efforts in
New York with the new program in
11 high schools in Chicago, Wash-
ington, D.C. and Duval County.
"The 'EXCELerator' program
will serve as a tremendous asset to
prepare high school students for
the challenges of college and the
workforce. I applaud the College
Board and the Bill and Melinda
Gates Foundation for their commit-
ment to important education
reforms," said Governor Bush.
"This pilot program builds on the
cutting-edge reforms in Florida's
A++ Plan for Education and will
help make more rigorous curricu-
lums a reality for future generations
of Florida students."
Four Duval County schools
have been selected to participate,
including Samuel Wolfson, Terry
Parker, Sandalwood and Robert
E. Lee High Schools. These
schools are granted access to a
wide range of College Board tools
as well as project management
strategies designed to raise stan-
dards and enrich students' aca-
demic experiences.
"We are extremely excited
about the launch of the 'EXCELera-
tor' program," said College Board
President, Gaston Caperton. "We


"We are extremely excited about the launch of
the 'EXCELerator' program. We anticipate
reaching thousands of students in urban dis-
tricts with a program that is designed to prepare
them for advanced courses and fortify them with
the skills they need to succeed in college."
Gaston Caperton,
College Board President


anticipate reaching thousands of
students in urban districts with a
program that is designed to pre-
pare them for advanced courses
and fortify them with the skills they
need to succeed in college."
The "EXCELerator" Schools
program provides:
Rigorous academic programs
for all students;
Professional development for
superintendents, principals, teach-
ers and counselors;
Data to inform and drive
teaching, learning and assessment;
College planning and prepa-
ration programs, and
Developmental supports for
students to create personalized
learning opportunities.
"The 'EXCELerator' Schools
project is huge for us," said Joseph
Wise, Duval County Public Schools
Superintendent. "The support and
resources this grant provides com-
plement our mission of building
and enhancing lifelong learning
opportunities for Duval County stu-
dents. It is our responsibility to pro-
vide students with meaningful
opportunities that expose them to
and prepare them for postsec-
ondary education options."
Gov. Jeb Bush recently signed
into law Florida's A++ Plan for


Education, increasing the rigor and
relevance of Florida's middle and
high schools to better prepare stu-
dents for postsecondary education
and the workforce. Additionally,
Governor Bush and Education
Commissioner John L. Winn this
week announced record numbers
of Florida students are taking the
SAT and Advanced Placement (AP)
exams. More than 94,601 of Flori-
da's 2006 high school graduates
took the SAT, representing 63 per-
cent of the total number of high
school graduates. This is the largest
number of Florida students to ever
take the SAT. Florida also saw the
greatest increase in public school
AP exam-takers compared to all
other states from 2005 to 2006.
Since 1999, Governor Bush's
A+ Plan for Education has played a
dramatic role in improving student
achievement. Today, more stu-
dents than ever are reading on their
own, participating in Advanced
Placement (AP) classes, taking col-
lege entrance exams, graduating
from high school and pursuing
higher education.

Clewiston Tigers are able to slosh past the Cowboys


By Jeff Barwick

Clewiston's power running
senior tailback Jamal Hubert led
the Tigers to a 21-7 victory over
the LaBelle Cowboys in the
Hendry County Championship
game Saturday afternoon.
Hubert gained 213 yards rushing
on 14 carries, scoring two touch-
downs on runs of 60 and 49
yards. The contest was post-
poned from Friday night due to
rain and was played on a slip-
pery Cane Field with rain before
and at the end of the game.
The Tigers took the opening
kickoff and wasted little time
with Hubert crashing off tackle
and through the Cowboy sec-
ondary and racing 60 yards to
score. Jared Combass converted
the point after kick. The Cow-
boys took the following kickoff
and marched down to the Tiger
28 but were held on downs. On
the first snap, Combass dropped
back and passed to tight end
Kale Mitchell who was clear
down the sidelines. Mitchell jug-
gled the ball on his fingertips for
5 yards before tucking it away
and completing the 72-yard
scoring.play.. Combass again
converted the extra point. .-
The scrappy Cowboys came
back with a solid drive and
moved the ball on the running of
tailback Gabriel Puente and
Andrew Tovar. Quarterback
Caleb Jordan also completed a
13 yard pass to flanker Chad
Lutkenhaus to keep the drive
moving. Facing a third and seven
from the Tiger 31, Jordan tried to
pass and Tiger defensive back
Jasper Hunter snared the ball
and returned it 15 yards. The
Tiger offense committed two
penalties and was unable to
convert for the first time in the
game as the first period was
coming to a close.
After an exchange of punts in
the second quarter, the Tigers
began a drive at the Cowboy 49
with 3:25 remaining in the half.
After an incomplete pass, Tiger
Jared Combass handed the ball
to Hubert who again smashed


his way through defenders and
broke free for the 49 yard score.
Combass added the extra point
to make it 21-0 for the Tigers.
The Tigers came out in the
second half and appeared flat
and the Cowboys served notice
that they did not intend to give
up. The Tigers were unable to
mount a drive in either of the
final two periods. The Cowboys
did put together a scoring drive
at the beginning of the fourth
period, largely on the running of
Puente. Beginning at their 30
yard line, Puente carried for 21
yards followed by Tovar gaining
another 5. Then Puente went off
his right tackle, broke to the out-
side and outraced the Tiger sec-
ondary for a 44-yard touchdown
run. Reynaldo Hernandez con-
verted the kick to narrow the
Tiger lead to 21-7. The Cowboys
then held the Tigers on down
taking over at the Tiger 40. Jor-
dan completed a pass for 9 yards
to Lutkenhaus and another 9
yard pass to Thomas Bennett to
get the ball to the Tiger 15. After
two incomplete passes, Tiger
Sim Putnam picked off Jordan to
kill the drive. The Tigers were
held on downs and punted and
the Cowboys came right back,
driving down to the Tiger 11
before running out of gas.
The Tigers made one more
offensive charge when Hubert
broke free again and ran down
the Tiger sideline for 58 yards
before being caught from
behind by Cowboy Julian Keen.
Tiger backup tailback Darris
Hughes then added a 13-yard
run as the game ended with the
Tigers at the Cowboy 18 yard
line.
Clewiston Coach Larry
Antonacci was displeased with
the Tiger effort.
"We put forth a good first half
but our second half showing
was poor. We did not finish off
the game and our squad just did-
n't play with Tiger pride." He
added, "We got by today but we
can't play like that against a
more powerful team and expect
to win."
The Tigers will host archrival
Glades Day next Friday night.

Defensively, Clewiston was
led by defensive back Jasper
Hunter who had six solo tackles,
a couple of which were bone
jarring, and a pass interception
that he returned for 15 yards.
Junior defensive end Delvin
Hughes also contributed with
three sacks and a blocked pass.
Tiger linebacker and defen-
sive captain David Pope sat out
the game because of his knee
injury against American Her-
itage. The current diagnosis is
that minor knee surgery will be
required and that he will miss

UF launches organic ag degree program


By Tom Nordlie
UF/IFAS
GAINESVILLE With rev-
enues from U.S. organic food
sales climbing by almost 20 per-
cent each year, the demand for
skilled workers in this field is
booming and a new University
of Florida academic program will
help meet producers' needs.
Fall semester marks the official
launch of a science-based organic
agriculture undergraduate degree
program at UF, making it one of
the first three U.S. institutions to
offer this major. Colorado State
University and Washington State
University debut similar programs
this fall. UF has offered a minor in
organic agriculture for the past
year. Both the major and minor
programs are administered by the
horticultural sciences depart-
ment, part of UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Florida has a growing organic
food industry, but producers must
look beyond the state to find high-
ly trained personnel to manage
their operations, said Dan
Cantliffe, chairman of the horti-
cultural sciences department.
"This (program) is something
that's been long overdue, espe-
cially for UF and the United
States," Mr. Cantliffe said.
"There's a big industry, a big
demand and a lack of people who
are qualified to do the work


employers need."
Organic agriculture is an
approach to food production that
involves little or no synthetic
chemical fertilizer and pesticide.
The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture has established strict guide-
lines for certifying organic farm-
ers.
In 2005, organic foods
accounted for $13.8 billion in U.S.
consumer sales, about 2.5 per-
cent of total U.S. food sales,
according to a manufacturers'
survey commissioned by the
Organic Trade Association, a lead-
ing industry organization. Since
1998, revenues from U.S. con-
sumer sales of organic foods have
risen by an average of more than
18 percent per year.
And, it's not just consumers
who are interested in organic
food, Mr. Cantliffe said. The UF
major and minor programs were
developed partly in response to
ongoing student demand.
"Another big factor was that
we have faculty and facilities that
are suitable for teaching this
material," he said. "As the
demand and the curriculum
develop, we may expand the pro-
gram."
Three students have enrolled
in the undergraduate degree pro-
gram, and many others have
expressed interest, said Melissa
Webb, academic support services


coordinator for the horticultural
sciences department. "We think a
lot more (students) will come out
of the woodwork," Ms. Webb
said. "There's no set cap on
enrollment, so the more, the mer-
rier."
About one dozen students are
enrolled in the minor program,
she said. The undergraduate
degree program will focus on
training students to manage an
organic farming unit, said Mickie
Swisher, director of UF's Center
for Organic Agriculture.
"This gives you the skills and
technical knowledge where if you
needed to put 2,000 acres of
organic crops into production,
you could do it," said Ms. Swisher,
a UF associate professor of family,
youth and community sciences.
The program requires 120
credit hours, most of them in sci-
ence courses including chemistry,
botany, genetics, entomology and
soil science, capped off by several
production-agriculture classes.
One required class, Principles
of Organic and Sustainable Pro-
duction, was devised specifically
for the program; another, Alterna-
tive Cropping Systems, was modi-
fied to put greater emphasis on
organic agriculture. The minor
program requires the sustainable
production and alternative crop-
ping classes, plus at least three
credits of electives on each of


three subjects crop production,
pest management and resource
management.
Ms. Swisher helped organize a
committee that developed the
minor program over a six-month
period in 2004. Launched in fall
2005, the minor is considered
interdisciplinary and is also head-
quartered in the horticultural sci-
ences department.
While the minor program was
being proposed, a committee in
the horticultural sciences depart-
ment developed the proposal for
the organic agriculture major.
Webb and Rebecca Darnell, a
professor of horticultural sciences
and undergraduate coordinator
for the department, chaired the
committee. Darnell also helped
secure approval from the College
of Agricultural and Life Sciences
and the UF Curriculum Commit-
tee for both the minor and major.
The new undergraduate
degree program will enhance the
prestige of both UF and the
department, Darnell said.
"The development of this pro-
gram is addressing a critical need
in educating students in science-
based information required for
successful organic production,"
she said. "These students would
then be in an excellent position to
aid in the success of the organic
industry in Florida and else-
where."


Your edible landscape


- Containerized


By Dee Dee Dilger
Jacobson
Horticulture Extension Agent
Just between you, me, and
"The Garden Post" I would like to
suggest growing an edible land-
scape in containers. Now I am
not crazy, here me out. What bet-
ter way to grow edible herbs, and
vegetables than in pots. It would
be low maintenance, wouldn't
take up much space, and who
needs volumes of vegetables any-
way. The whole idea of gardening
is for it to be a labor of love, not
more labor then love. Such small
scale editable landscapes can be
practical as well as ornamental if
properly and imaginatively done.
Containers for your edible gar-
den can be anything you have on
hand. Just keep in mind that the
container needs to be sufficiently
durable and large enough to hold
the fully grown plant or plants,
has adequate drainage and is aes-
thetically pleasing to the eye. This
is done by having different con-
tainer heights and utilizing hang-
ing baskets. Don't forget, you can
also use different plant forms
such as upright, sprawling, and
mounding plants to help create
depth and height. Leaf texture


and color will also add depth and
interest. Another idea for your edi-
ble landscape is utilizing themes.
This would include herbs, scent
or texture, or your favorite vegeta-
bles. There is nothing more satis-
fying then having fresh vegetables
and herbs from your own garden.
What kind of vegetables and
herbs to grow would depend on
the time of the year and your per-
sonal taste.
Before you start planting, fill
your containers with soil media
but leave enough room at the top
for watering. Use any of the pre-
pared mixes found at your local
garden center or mix your own.
Incorporate a slow release fertiliz-
er of 20-20-20 or you can use a
soluble fertilizer when you water
your plants. Since container
depth and amount of light will
dictate the frequency of watering,
here is a sure method for know-
ing when to water. Stick your fin-
ger in the soil to the first knuckle.
If it is moist, then you don't need
to water. If it isn't, then you do.
You are now ready to enjoy the
edible landscape you have
designed with the vegetables or
herbs of your choice. Bon
appetite.

Ernesto
Continued From Page 1
Watching as Ernesto crept
closer to Florida, people scurried
to finish last minute preparations.
Finally, Tropical Storm Ernesto
arrived in Clewiston on Wednes-
day. Though people had pre-
pared to face another disaster like
Wilma, Ernesto fortunately had
not gathered much strength in
the Atlantic.
Unlike Wilma, Ernesto hardly
affected Clewiston. The only
major effect of the storm in
Clewiston was the rain which
began coming down on Tuesday
night and did not stop until late
Wednesday night.


After the wind and rain abated
slightly, residents of Clewiston
combed the streets in search of
any damage.
Fortunately, Clewiston did not
see many flooded roads or a
break or rupture in the Herbert
Hoover Dike around Lake Okee-
chobee, which has been a major
concern in recent months.
Tropical Storm Ernesto proved
to be nothing more than slight
winds and rain.
After witnessing Hurricane
Wilma's destruction less than a
year ago and facing Ernesto last
week, Clewiston residents are
more confident that they can sur-
vive another storm though not
all of them are willing to take that
challenge just yet.

Officials with the Hendry County Sheriff's Office and the DEA
found two homes in Port LaBelle where suspects were grow-
ing marijuana.

indoors. The row of plants in the
home looked like an indoor gar-
den.
Officials took several suspects
into custody after the discovery
of the grow houses. Jorge Luis
Prieto, 40, of LaBelle, and
Maikyel Coronado, 23, of
Hialeah, are both facing charges
of possession of marijuana over
20 grams, possession of narcotic
paraphernalia and operating a
drug house in connection with
the incident.
The second house, located at
8008 Royal Circle, also con-
tained a seemingly sophisticated
grower operation, with rooms


dedicated solely to harvesting
the illegal crop.
As of last week, Prieto and
Coronado were still in the
Hendry County Jail with bond
set at $18,000 each.
Though it seems as though
the two discoveries might be
connected, with both houses
located near one another both
being discovered on the same
day it is unclear at this point
whether such a connection
exists.
The case is still under investi-
gation while officials look for the
owner of the property at 8008
Royal Circle. Officials are not
releasing any further informa-
tion, but more arrests are
expected, said Sheriff Ronnie
Lee.

Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son says the huge attendance at
the Farm to Fuel Summit in Orlan-
do is indicative of the great inter-
est in agriculture's leading role in
the development of alternative
fuels. More than 300 people from
10 states and Brazil were in Orlan-
do to participate in the summit,
which is fostering a dialogue on
how to achieve the goal of reduc-
ing the United States' dependence
on foreign oil and expand the
market for Florida's crops.

local agencies through the storm.
According to Ivon Cayce,
Administrative Tech for Hendry
County Emergency Management,
two shelters, Clewiston Middle
School and LaBelle Middle School
were opened in Hendry County for
voluntary evacuees.
Many of the residents at the shel-
ter lived in low-lying areas, mobile
homes. Some were still dealing with
lastyear's hurricane damage.
The shelters were opened Tues-
day, with 60 residents taking refuge
in Clewiston, another 20 in LaBelle.
Residents with special needs
were taken to a shelter in Muse.
"We did everything we would
regularly do in the event of a storm,"
said Ms. Cayce, who added that the
emergency management response
center was operated from the
Clewiston Utilities Department.
W. C. "Bo" Pelham, who served
as the director of the Emergency
Operations Center, said no reports
of major damages or floods were
received from the Clewiston area.
"We didn't receive any emer-
gency calls during the storm," Mr.
Pelham said.

A broad coalition of industry,
academic and government lead-
ers, including federal, state and
local representatives are examin-
ing the opportunities for Florida to
become a leading alternative fuel
producer. Currently, most ethanol
production in the United States is
made from corn. However, new
and emerging technologies -
some of which are being devel-
oped by Florida universities -
will enable production of ethanol
and other alternative fuels from
many of the crops grown in Flori-
da. These technologies will also
facilitate the use of hurricane
debris as a fuel source.
"I have long believed that
Florida agriculture could play a
major part in meeting our
nation's fuel supply," Commis-
sioner Bronson said. "Clearly, the
overwhelming number of people
have come to this summit
because they believe it as well
and want to do what is necessary
to achieve these goals."

Homeowners should stay prepared for hurricanes


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
Last week's little tropical visitor
did little serious damage to our
area's health and welfare and the
rainfall has certainly ended this
summer's spotty dry weather.
Tropical storm Ernesto may have
done us another favor it gave us a
chance to review our personal
plans for preparing for these regu-
lar summer events.
Today's column will review a
University of Florida Hurricane
preparation checklist, and I'll offer
a few of my personal observations
that may remind local residents to
take a peek and update storm
preparation plans. Why not take a
few minutes this Labor Day to be
prepared, just in case.
How much time do you need to
prepare for a storm? When the hur-
ricane watch is announced, have a
very clear idea of how much time
you need to shop, secure your
property, prepare and pack if evac-


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

uating. Coordinate your personal
needs with those of your family,
neighbors and employer.
With fuel prices going up and
up, be sure you have enough time
to fuel your vehicles. Make sure the
battery is in good condition, and all
other systems are ready for the long
haul if you plan to evacuate. Do you
have a current map, and have you
looked it over before you start to
drive away?
Check your other battery-pow-
ered equipment. A friend of mine
keeps a secret stash of extra batter-
ies put away and never touches it
until the storm season is over. Take
an inventory of how many C's, D's,
9-volts, etc. that you have on hand.
A radio could be your only link with


the outside world, and a flashlight
can be a lifesaver when there is no
power.
Did you lower or secure TV and
radio antennas before Ernesto
arrived? This can prevent antennas
from flying into electrical wires, and
make communication possible as
soon as the storm passes. Check
that generator, run it, and remem-
ber to have some oil on hand too.
Many homeowners, me includ-
ed, have too much stuff around in
the yard. It all needs to be removed
from the yard and open patios. Do
you have a place to put it inside a
garage or in the house?
Protect your windows. Wedge
sliding glass doors to prevent them
from being lifted from their tracks.
Forget about taping windows it's
not an effective task. Board up with
heavy duty shutter materials that
can withstand impacts from flying
debris. Have extra hardware and
tools on hand to do the job. If you
use battery operated tools, have


extra chargeable batteries ready to
go.
Close up awnings, windows
and drapes. And put the tools in a
place that you can get to after the
storm is over. Brace your garage
door. Remember that power may
fail, and know how to safely open
the garage door manually.
How's your supply of emer-
gency food and water? Expiration
dates on stored food supplies
should be checked. Remember to
plan on time to shop for missing
items. Realize that other last
minute shoppers will make lines
longer and supplies limited. Pur-
chase containers that serve the size
of your family without leftovers.
Fill clean containers with drink-
ing water. Don't store drinking
water in used milk containers -
instead, save empty water jugs.
Other containers or clean bathtubs
can also be filled with drinking
water. If you have special medical
needs fill prescription drugs and
have an extra supply of special
medication.
Waterproof your valuables
including important papers and
those irreplaceable photos. Pack or
secure jewelry, or put them in a
bank safety deposit box. Other-
wise, if you will be evacuating,
keep your valuables and important
papers with you at all times.


Disconnect and put electronic
equipment in plastic. Make backup
copies of important computer data
and take discs or portable hard
drives with you. Protect appliances
and furniture if your prep time is
limited make choices on which to
protect based on replacement
costs. Elevate items above floor
level and cover them with plastic.
Do you have the materials on hand
to do this?
Turn your refrigerator and freez-
er to the coldest setting. This keeps
food as long as possible in case of a
power failure. If leaving, shut off
gas and electricity at the main
power source. Shut off water lines
to your home and this may
require a special tool. Lock all win-
dows and doors before leaving. If
staying, avoid using electric appli-
ances. Have a safe room designat-
ed in a small, interior area such as a
hallway, closet or bathroom.
Don't drain your swimming
pool or spa. Keep water levels
about 12 inches below the edge to
handle expected rainfall. Spa cov-
ers need to be secured from winds
or stored inside. Add extra sanita-
tion chemicals to the water. And
make arrangements for the safety
of your boats remember during
evacuations drawbridges will be
closed to boat traffic.
Make arrangements for the safe-


ty of your house pets. Pets are not
allowed in most public shelters or
hotels. If evacuating, make reserva-
tions with pet-friendly homes of
friends or hotels well in advance of
your departure.
Share your cell phone numbers
with relatives and friends, and tell
them if you are staying or where
you are going. Make lists of neigh-
bors, friends and co-workers and
take them with you. If evacuating,
take the phone numbers of local
officials as well.
Remember seeing the long
evacuation lines on the highways?
If your home is well-constructed
and is not in a flood zone, plan to
stay. Don't stay if you live in a
mobile home officials recom-
mend evacuation.

Shoreline plants can help reduce pollu3rats in.-toe ground water flowing to a stream or Jake.

Stormwater kidneys filter and clean water,


By Ed Ayen
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
A stormwater retention pond
is supposed to provide a filter for
potential waterway pollutants. A
well-built and maintained pond
that supports plant life can sigriifi-
cantly improve the quality of
water draining into Florida's
waterways Think of shoreline
vegetation along any water body
as the "kidneys" of the watershed.
Desirable shoreline vegetation
can stabilize the soil, protecting it
from waves and erosion and
uptake nutrients from runoff pre-
venting them from entering the
waterbody. These same shoreline,
plants can help reduce pollutants
in the ground water flowing to a
stream or lake. A vegetated, tree
lined shoreline also provides
shade that helps to keep water
temperatures lower. Many fish
and other desirable aquatic
organisms prefer cooler tempera-
tures. As water temperature rises,
its capacity to hold oxygen
decreases. Unfortunately many
waterfront owners keep their
shorelines bare or have grass
down to the shoreline. This lack
of a natural buffer may contribute
to shock loads of nutrients and
other pollutants affecting the
water body and everything down-
stream.
You can help restore the kid-


neys of your water body by aquas-
caping your shoreline. Desirable
shoreline vegetation should be
planted close to the shore in the
wide shallow area called the lit-
toral zone. Allow for water level
fluctuations and plant depth-toler-
ant species further out. The Bald
Cypress tree (Taxodium dis-
tichum) does well on the shore or
in up to six foot of water. A shrub
that does well along the shore-
line, but not in the water, is the
Hibiscus (any variety). Plants that
do well in moist soil or shallow
water are the Golden Canna
(Canna flaccida), Alligator Flag
(Thalia geniculata) and Southern
Blueflag (Iris virginica). A plant
that does well in shallow water,
up to three feet, is the Swamp Lily
(Crinum americanum). Duck
Potato (Sagittaria latifolia) can be
planted from the shore edge to six
feet of water. Items for deep water
are Arrowhead (Sagittaria lancifo-
lia) and pickerelweed (Pontederia
cordata).
Grasses recommended for the
shoreline plantings are Sand Cord
Grass (Spartina bakeri) and Soft
Rush (Juncus effuses). Deep
water grasses, six to 12 feet, are
Spikerush (Eleocharis cellulose
and interstincta) and Paspalidium
Grass (Paspalidium geminatum).
Floating leaved plants recom-
mended are Yellow Water Lily


(Nymphaea Mexicana) and Fra-
grant Water Lily (Nymphaea oder-
ata).
Please contact your county
Soil and Water Conservation Dis-
trict office prior to doing any re-
vegetation of shorelines to make
sure you are complying with rec-
ommended procedures and regu-
lations. Remember the future of
Florida's treasured water
resources begins in your yard.
The decisions you make from
developing a home site, to land-
scaping your yard, to fertilizing
your lawn actually influences the
health of Florida's natural water-
ways; especially if you live on one
of Florida's "kidneys".
The Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods program is being

Ranchers help feed the hungry


GAINESVILLE The Florida
Farm Bureau Young Farmers and
Ranchers (YF&R) Leadership
Group is leading a campaign to
feed the hungry through the
American Farm Bureau's "Har-
vest for All" program. The cam-
paign will conclude at the 2006
State Convention at Daytona
Beach. The YF&Rs are asking


county Farm Bureaus to supply
canned goods, make a monetary
donation or a donation of time at
a local food bank. Erin Best,
president of the Marion County
Farm Bureau, first heard of this
program while serving on the
American Farm Bureau Young
Farmer and Rancher Committee
and encouraged the Florida


YF&Rs to participate.
"We set an initial state goal of
two bags of food per county for a
total of 1,500 lbs of food. But at
the State YF&R Conference in
July, state and county YF&R
members made pledges for their
respective counties, which
totaled more than 20,000 Ibs,"
Ms. Best said.

Ernesto Certainties missing but good signs save the day


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
With the passing of Ernesto for
more northerly regions, we gave a
collective sigh of relief. Predictions
were a little more horrendous than
reality, but nobody is complaining.
There were some comments I
heard about how the Weather
Bureau might have gotten it
wrong. From the beginning of
time, people have been interested
in predicting weather. Almanacs
were among our earliest publica-
tions in the U. S. and attempted to
give farmers a "heads up" on what
to expect. In Biblical times, storms
were of concern too. Jesus was


approached by Pharisees and Sad-
ducees, who "tested Him by asking
him to show a sign from heaven
(Matthew 16:lff)." He told them
"When evening J ,. -
comes, you say
'It will be fair
weather for the 9
sky is red', and .,-'
in the morning
'Today will be
stormy for the
sky is red and
overcast'. You
know how to Samuel S.
interpret the Thomas
appearance of
the sky, but you cannot interpret
the signs of the times (verse 2-3)."
In fact, what had happened this
past week was a state-of-the-art


prediction; and a reminder that we
are finally left with probabilities,
not certainties when it comes to
the weather. It was the Pharisees
and Sadducees who were also say-
ing to Jesus "We want a certainty,
not a probability, show us a sign!
(Now!)" Jesus told them that they
already had a sign and apparently
didn't read it; the sign He cited was
the "sign of Jonah." The probabili-
ties will become certainties when
we read the signs correctly, but we
are left not knowing enough to be
one hundred percent accurate.
The macabre "Silence of the
Lambs" has the neophyte Agent
Starling taunted by the insane Han-
nibal Lector who tells her "The
signs are there" and leaves her to
decipher what should be before


her.
The lesson for us is always to
"read the signs" as best we can but
also to deal with the uncertainties
and probabilities that surround
them.
The probability with Ernesto
was that there was a storm coming
and we should prepare for it. The
probability with the Pharisees and
Sadducees was to see the likeli-
hood of Jesus as the Messiah
despite their biases against Him.
The sign of Jonah was of one who
was "buried" (in the belly of a fish)
for three days and rose again. I find
people usually not very comfort-
able with probabilities when mat-
ters personally affect them.
Doctors are supposed to give
certainties about cures and meteo-


rologists are supposed to give exact
details about hurricanes. There are
"religious" people who give cer-
tainties when it comes to the end of
the world and they have missed the
mark since predictions have been
made. The signs are not entirely
there; we are not to know and the
message is "deal with it." Rather,
like the hurricanes, prepare know-
ing what the probabilities give us.
We should read the signs as best
we can, acknowledge the uncer-
tainties and then get to work with
what we have. The weather fore-
caster or the faith you have is there
to guide you and help you.
The experts in the human disci-
plines are there to read the signs
too; their probabilities are closer
than those of laypersons but there


is always that inexact moment.
One of the groups I help suggested
that we regard "Ernesto" as a drill
for preparedness. I think that is a
good thought; all of the challenges
and sources of anxiety are drills for
preparedness. If I don't know the
exact path of the storm, I still pre-
pare if it is in my region. If I don't
know the exact nature of the dan-
ger, still prepare for it as best I can.
If I don't have all of the answers, I
will prepare with what seems to be
the likelihood of something hap-
pening that will affect me. Reading
the signs, being prophetic, is really
about keeping us from getting it
wrong even if it is not all one hun-
dred percent right. That's why faith
grows and works!


Heigh Ho! Heigh Ho! It's off to work we go! Area Church News in Brief


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
They are miners. They work in
their mine, all day long, finding jew-
els of great beauty. And they sing a
song, "We dig,
dig, dig, dig, dig,
dig, dig, in our
mine the whole
day through, to
dig, dig, dig, dig,
dig, dig, dig is
what we like to
do!" When they
start each day,
they sing, John
"Heigh ho! Hicks
Heigh ho! It's
off to work we go!" and while they
work they sing, "Just whistle while
you work!" They are the seven
dwarfs: Sleepy, Doc, Dopey, Happy,
Grumpy, Sneezy and Bashful.
Even though they are car-
toons, these little guys seem to
have it all together when it comes
to work! They are doing some-


thing they enjoy, something they
believe is important, and they get
pleasure out of work, not just a
paycheck. "We dig, dig, dig, dig,
dig, in our mine the whole day
through!" Would that we could
all derive as much pleasure and
satisfaction from our work as do
the seven dwarfs. Would that we
all could share their attitude
about our labors!
We all know some people who
say, "I go to work every morning
and I endure it. I am just there for
the paycheck." Perhaps you are
one of them. When I hear things
like that, I think about how fortu-
nate that I am. I feel called to my
work. If truth be known, I would
probably do it even if I were not
being paid. But even still, there are
days when I don't want to come to
work. There are days when I'd
rather be anywhere else.
Some days, even the pastor
doesn't want to get up and go to
work because work can be hard,


and work can be frustrating, and
working can be tiring. One of the
real issues we face in the church is
believer's burn-out, also known as
compassion fatigue.
Sometimes, especially when we
are tired and frustrated, we let the
values of the world dilute our Chris-
tian values. It almost seems like
Jesus was about to let that happen
in the way he treated the woman in
Matthew 15:26. Jesus told her, "It is
not right to take the children's
bread and toss it to their dogs."
But then Jesus looked into her
eyes, and He listened to her words
with His heart, and even though He
was tired and wanted desperately
to rest, He reached out with His
love and touched her, and her life
was changed. That's what our
Christian work is about, "Touching
one another with God's love and
changing lives in the process."
Look around and think of those
who surround you. We are farmers
and school teachers, sales people


and mechanics, doctors and police
officers, retired people and stu-
dents; and we come with differing
levels of satisfaction in what we do
for a living. I think our faith tells us
that although no job is perfect, there
are ways to get more meaning and
joy out of our work. Probably the
most obvious way is to realize that
our work, no matter what it is we
do, touches someone somewhere.
In one of its best understandings,
work is about relationships. Work
can also be about making life better
for someone beside us. This aspect
of work may be hard to see in some
jobs, but I believe it is there
nonetheless. Our work takes on
new meaning when we see it as
touching others. And if as Christians
we add a little bit of faith to what we
do for a living, we may discover our
work bringing us more joy and less
stress, more satisfaction and less
fatigue. We may even find ourselves
singing, "Heigh ho! Heigh Ho! It's
offtoworkwego!"

Watch expiration dates on foods


While arranging my pantry
recently, I was surprised to find
two jars of mayonnaise had
passed their expiration dates.
The only reason I had two jars of
mayo in the pantry is that I took
advantage of a "buy one, get one
free offer."
Luckily for me, I checked the
,expiration dates before using the
mayo. Next time I will check the
dates before purchasing mayo.
Checking expiration dates on
any perishable food is a good
idea. It takes a few more minutes
in the grocery store, but can save
money and help keep your
family safe.
Since stores are trying to sell
food before the expiration dates,
items that are nearing their expi-
.ration dates may be put on "spe-
-cial" for a quick sale. These
foods are safe at the time of sale,
- but if you aren't planning to use
Them for several weeks, the item
might "expire" before you use it.


A
Healthier :
Life


with Katrina Elsken
Be careful with anything that
is on sale, especially (as I found
out) items such as mayonnaise
and salad dressings.
I found the following mayon-
naise safety tips on the Hell-
mann's Mayonnaise Web site.
How long can I keep my
unopened jars and containers of
Mayonnaise?
Your mayonnaise has a date
stamped on the label that says
"Best When Used By." For opti-
mum quality and freshness, use
it by this date.


Is the date on the label an
actual expiration date? The date
stamped on the label is the date
that assures the product's opti-
mum and consistent quality. It
will generally maintain good
quality for two to three months
after that date.
What's the best way to store
my mayonnaise? Can I freeze it?
Your mayonnaise should be
refrigerated after opening. Stor-
age conditions (temperature)
will affect product quality. High
temperatures will accelerate the
loss of fresh flavor and exposure
to cold (near freezing tempera-
tures) can change the consisten-
cy, texture, and thickness and
may cause separation. There-
fore, we do not recommend
freezing.
Is it safe to take foods pre-
pared with mayonnaise on pic-
nics? Mayonnaise alone is not
usually a food safety problem.
Many of the foods that are typi-


cally used with mayonnaise,
such as chicken, ham, eggs, or
potatoes, are much more sus-
ceptible to bacterial growth than
mayonnaise itself. The ingredi-
ents in mayonnaise such as vine-
gar, lemon juice and salt create
an unfavorable environment for
bacteria that will slow or prevent
its growth.
To keep picnic foods safe:
Chill well before packing
Carry to the picnic in an
insulated container
Keep out of direct sunlight
Discard leftover picnic food
immediately rather than carrying
home to serve later.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is very
important if you are on any pre-
scription drugs. Some drugs may
interact badly with foods that
might otherwise be considered
"healthy."


Harness the power by focusing on the task


Have you ever felt like the
inside of your head was a bag full
of ping pong balls bouncing
around in several or maybe hun-
'dreds of directions at one time? I
have called this running around
like a chicken with its' head cut
off. In the past, I have made refer-
.:ence to my hound dog chasing
ten rabbits at once and how she
would not be able to even catch
-:one unless she focused on just a
Single rabbit.
We are just like this. Our minds
- start racing and we start on one
_thing and then another and
.before we know it, we are trying
' to do ten things at once and the
.-house gets pulled apart before
our very eyes. When we wake up
from our tizzy and this is exactly
what is happening; we find that
we have accomplished absolutely
nothing even though we have
-worked ourselves into a frenzy.
We were just spinning our wheels
.and getting no place fast.
When our actions have us
moving fast but not getting any
place, then we need to harness
'this energy. This energy is going to
come out of us one way or anoth-
er. We can practice using this
energy for good or we can let it
play havoc with your lives. You

have a choice.
Your first choice is to step out-
side of yourself and see it happen-
ing when you start to feel like you
are in a tizzy. Recognize your own
signs. Get a friend to help you see
this expending of energy. Some of
us use the telephone and talking
to defuse the clutter that is
screaming in our heads to get out.
Just last night I had this discussion
with a dear, dear friend.
For several years now I have
thought that she had a lot to great
ideas to help people with their
parenting skills. She would call
me on the phone and do a verbal
brain dump, and then call another
person to explain her idea. Once
she had processed the idea ver-
bally she had nothing left to write.
The energy was gone. It had been
unfocused, unharnessed and was


like the air in a balloon that slips
through your hands and buzzes
all around the room. We have to
figure out a way to capture this
energy to help people; we dis-
cussed this for a little while.
Last night we came up with a
plan. It was another one of our
acronyms; write. This is what I
wanted her to do anyway. Many
times in conversation and on
instant message when she would
have an idea; I would say write to
her in big letters. I told her when
you have all these thoughts racing
around your head you have to
wait about calling someone. Sit
down and reason through your
idea on paper or computer. Use
your intellect to teach and
expound upon your idea.
When you feel yourself head-
ed for this tizzy uneasy spinning
around like an unharnessed bal-
loon: I want you to stop and focus
this energy to come out of your
fingers too. A simple notepad that
you keep in your special place will
help you to jot down your ideas
so you will not forget them. I even
keep a pad in the bathroom for
my midnight ideas.
The reason we get in such a
tizzy about something is that we
need instant gratification. You


know this feeling. We need some-
one to say, "Good Idea!" But an
idea is not good unless an action
comes from it. It becomes that
balloon buzzing around a room.
Harness that balloon and fill it
with your ideas and set it free to
FLY and bless the world.
Use our little acronym write to
help you harness the power that
is in you. Your home is holding
you back. Your power may not be
writing but you do have a power
that is begging to be set free. This
is our passion. You may not even
know what that passion is yet
because your home and the
chaos/tizzy in your head is hold-
ing you back. Focus those ener-
gies on building a simple Control
Journal to be your guild to getting
the rid of that clutter and CHAOS
in your life. This will free you to
take your ideas from your head
and set them free too.
For more help getting rid of
your CHAOS; check out her Web
site and join her free mentoring
group at www.FlyLady.net or her
book, "Sink Reflections" pub-
lished by Bantam and her new
book, Body Clutter. Copyright

HENRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Pun l Prareulon Promotion/Retention
No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute social promotion.
Florida Statute 1008.25 requires that any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading, based upon locally
determined or statewide assessments conducted in kindergarten, grade 1, grade 2, or grade 3 must be given
Intensive reading Instruction Immediately following the identification of the reading deficiency. The student's reading
proffieency must be reassessed by locally determined assessments, orthrough teacher observations at the beginning
of the grade flowing the intensive reading instruction. The student must continue to be provided with intensive
reading instruction until the reading deficiency is remedied.
ff a student's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated by scoring at Level 2 or
higher on the statewide assessment test in reading for grade 3, the student must be retained.
The parent of any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading must be notified in writing of the following:
1. That his/her child has been identified as having a substantial deficiency in reading.
2. A description of the current services that are provided to the child.
3. A description of the proposed supplemental instructional services and supports that will be provided to
the child that are designed to remediate the identified area of reading deficiency.
4. That f the child's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, the child must be retained
unless he/she is exempt from mandatory retention for good cause.
5. Strategies for parents to use in helping their child succeed in reading proficiency.
6. That the Rorida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is not the sole determiner of promotion and that
additional evaluations, portfolio reviews, and assessments are available to the child to assist parents and
the school district in knowing when a child is reading at or above grade level and ready for grade
promotion.
7. The districts criteria and policies for mid-year promotion.
8. Each school district shall provide written notification to the parent of any student, who is retained because
his/her reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of third grade, that his/her child has not met the
proficiency level required for promotion, and the reasons the child is not eligible for a good cause
exemption as provided by Florida law. The notification must include a description of proposed
interventions and support that will be provided to the child to remediate the identified areas of reading
deficiency.
Successful Progression for Retained Readers
The 2004 Legislature amended section 1008.25, Florida Statutes, to create a new paragraph (7) that provides that
all students who are retained in third grade must be provided intensive interventions in reading to ameliorate the
students' reading deficiency, as identified by a valid and reliable diagnostic assessment. This intensive intervention
must Include effective Instructional strategies, participation in the school district's summer reading camp, and
appropriate teaching methodologies necessary to assist those students in becoming successful readers, able to read
at or above grade level, and ready for promotion to the next grade.
This section also requires each school district to establish at each school, where applicable, an Intensive
Acceleration Class for retained third grade students who subsequently score at Level 1 on the reading portion of the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The focus of this class shall be to increase a child's reading level
at least two grade levels in one year. The school is required to report the following:
Mid-Year Promotion
According to provisions in the Hendry County School District Pupil Progression Plan, students who were retained
the previous year may be considered for mid-year promotion provided the student has demonstrated the ability to
read at grade level and shows mastery of the state standards for the grade level in which he/she was retained. The
student must have the skills necessary to successfully function at the grade level to which he/she is being promoted
mid-year.
Good Cause Exemption from Mandatory Retention
The Hendry County School Board may only exempt students from mandatory retention for good cause as stated in
Florida Statute 1008.25. According to this statute, good cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
1. Limited English proficient students who have had less than two years of Instruction in an English for
Speakers of Other Languages Program.
2. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates that participation in the statewide
assessment program is not appropriate, consistent with the requirements of State Board of Education
rule.
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on all altemative standardized reading
assessment approved by the State Board of Education.
4. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that he/she is reading on grade level as evidenced
by demonstration of mastery of the Sunshine State Standards in reading equal to at least a Level 2
performance on the FCAT.
5. Students with disabilities who participate in the FCAT, and who have an individual education plan or a
Section 504 plan that reflects that the student has received the intensive remediation in reading for more
than two years but still demonstrates a deficiency in reading, and was previously retained in kindergarten,
grade 1, or grade 2.
6. Students who have received the Intensive remediation In reading for two or more years, but still
demonstrate a deficiency in reading, and who were previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade
2 for a total of two years.
The district school board must annually report to the parent of each student the progress of the student toward
achieving state and district expectations for proficiency in reading, writing, science, and mathematics. Student results
on each statewide assessment must be reported to the parent The evaluation of each student's progress must be
based upon the student's classroom work, observations, tests, district and state assessments, and other relevant
information.

Grad your bow -hunting season is here


Summer's officially over even
though you can't tell 'cause it's
still so hot and sticky outside.
We've finished our preseason
scouting and hung our tree
stands along well-traveled deer
trails, hopefully next to a mature
white oak that'll begin dropping
acorns soon. Finally the time of
year we've been waiting for is
here the beginning of football
season, and better yet, opening
day of hunting season, specifical-
ly archery.
Archery season provides a
great opportunity to take a trophy
whitetail and is arguably one of
the best times to do so, along
with hunting the rut. If you're
stealthy enough and have done
your homework, you've got a
good chance of having a nice one
walk out in front of you.
Florida's divided into three
hunting zones, and you'll need to
know which zone you'll be hunt-
ing in because season dates vary.
Hunting season comes in first
in the South Hunting Zone where
archery season begins Sept. 9
and ends Oct. 8. Next up is the
Central Zone which runs Sept. 23
- Oct. 22. In the Northwest Hunt-
ing Zone, archery season begins
Oct. 14 and ends Nov. 12.
To hunt during archery sea-
son, you'll need a Florida hunting
license and an archery permit.


by Tony Young

If you're a Florida resident, a
hunting license costs $12.50.
Nonresidents may pay $46.50 for
a 10-day license or $151.50 for 12
months. The archery permit
costs $5 for in-state and out-of-
staters.
Anyone planning to hunt one
of Florida's many wildlife man-
agement areas (WMAs) must
purchase a management area
permit for $26.50.
All of these are available at
county tax collectors' offices,
retail outlets that sell hunting and
fishing supplies, or by calling toll-
free 1-888-HUNT-FLORIDA or
clicking MyFWC.com/license.
The most common game to
take during archery season are
deer and wild hog. During this
period, deer of either sex are legal
game, regardless of antler size
(except for spotted fawns). The
daily bag limit on deer is two. Bag


limits on WMAs can differ, so
consult the area brochure.
Wild hogs are considered live-
stock on private lands and with
landowner permission can be
hunted year-round with no bag
or size limits. On most WMAs,
there's no bag or size limits, and
hogs are legal to take during any
hunting season except spring
turkey. On a few WMAs, limits do
apply so check the area
brochure.
In addition to hunting big
game, it's also legal to shoot gob-
blers or bearded turkeys during
archery season. Only one can be
taken per day and there's a two-
bird fall-season limit. It's against
the law to hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during this period, and
you can't shoot turkeys while
they're on the roost, over bait,
when you're within 100 yards of a
game-feeding station or with the
aid of recorded turkey calls.
If you're quite the marksman,
gray squirrel, quail and rabbit are
three other species legal to take
during archery season, and
there's a daily bag limit of 12 for
each.
Only bows may be used dur-
ing archery season no cross-
bows allowed, except for hunters
with a disabled crossbow permit.
Bows must have a minimum
draw weight of 35 pounds, and


hand-held releases are permitted.
For hunting deer, hog and turkey,
broadheads must have at least
two sharpened edges with a min-
imum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. Except for
turkeys, you're permitted to take
resident game over corn or soy-
beans, as long as the game-feed-
ing station's been established for
at least six months and main-
tained year-round. It's against the
law to use such bait on WMAs.
Some things you can't do dur-
ing archery season include pos-
sessing firearms, using explosive
or drug-injecting arrows, using
bows equipped with electronic
computational or laser sights and
possessing a bow on an airboat
in Miami-Dade County.
You can't use dogs to hunt
deer, hogs or turkeys, but you can
use bird-dogs if quail hunting.
Otherwise, the only time you can
have a dog in the woods while
hunting is on a leash, and you're
using it to trail wounded game.
Here's hoping all your prepa-
ration and persistence pays off
and wishing you luck on taking
that monster buck. As always,
have fun, hunt safely and ethical-
ly, and we'll see you in the
woods!


Summit ensures brighter hunting future


TALAHASSEE Florida
hunters are actively working to
preserve their hunting heritage,

favoring this group are showing
