Southern Gardens fights canker


SBy Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The frustration
is almost palpable: Citrus canker
and two straight years of multiple
hurricanes have wreaked havoc
on the citrus industry.in South
Florida, and yet the hits just keep
on coming.
First, Hurricane Wilma deci-
mated an estimated 50 percent of
area orange groves, and has
caused major disruptions in the
growing cycle of the fruits. And
now, citrus greening disease adds
yet another threat to Florida's cit-


rus growers.
Citrus canker has found its way
onto thousands of acres of citrus
farmland, including several thou-
sand acres of orange trees owned
and maintained by United States
Sugar Corp's Southern Gardens
Citrus growers company.
Travelers along Highway 80
and County Highway 833 may
have witnessed the consequences
of the spread of the disease, as
growers were forced to burn
infected crops to stop thespread of
the disease. Southern Gardens has
found 5,700 acres to show con-


firmed cases of the disease, and by
rule has eradicated 4,000 acres in
accordance with federal regula-
tions.
"Southern Gardens Citrus con-
tinues to be supportive of the Flori-
da Commissioner of Agriculture
and the latest official direction
issued last week in regards to the
canker eradication program and
the suspension of the 1,900' eradi-
cation rule at this time," said USSC
Director of Corporate Communi-
cations Judy Sanchez. "We have

Our Montura folks were excited this past Sunday, Jan. 22. while they enjoyed time with
their families at the Montura Annual Winterfest, which was filled with midway rides, as
well as a variety of food and fun for the whole family.

Southern Gardens have been busy destroying acre after
acre in their fight against Canker disease. Federal regula-
tions require the complete destruction of infected crops
and surrounding acreage by fire.




City throws



out lot plans


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Many
Clewiston residents breathed a
sigh of relief Monday night, but
some others were undoubtedly
frustrated when municipal offi-
cials halted the construction of
three homes, on property that
was not large enough in area to
develop.
After an urgent public outcry,
the Clewiston City Commission
voted to maintain "the integrity
of the neighborhood" surround:
ing the lot that had become a
beacon of interest to property
owners and developers through-
out the CIi 3
"That whole area has, nice
honmesoinJargel-,i i.ud I 1l!i,
not ever seen apy laso''r to
change it," said Charles Reid, a
resident of Crescent Drive. "I
don't see a need to change, just
to make them a little more


money, and I oppose this
action," he said at the Jan. 23
regular commission meeting.
On Dec. 19, the commission
had passed a variance request to
modify the minimum lot area
standards for development in an
R-1B zoning district, which
required a minimum of 14,000-
Ssquare feet. The preliminary
approval of the plans for con-
struction of three single-family
homes on lots of 7,150-square
feet quickly became an unpopu-
lar decision among residents
adjacent or near Crescent Drive.
A large turnout of those resi-
dents and concer-i ed citizens at
the meeting of the Clewiston
Planning and Zoning Board on
JaiI -I mad,. it e ide:nt J'1 hat th-
plan for tiny lots was not a popu-
lar idea. The P&Z Board unani-
mously voted against the vari-

County faces



building boom


By Patty Brant
Things are heating up in
Hendry County's planning and
zoning departments.
During, 2005, all the talk
about growth began to take on a
more tangible.form as the num-
bers showed a marked increase
over previous years. Last year
more permits were filed to build
site built homes than mobile
homes dramatically more.
Hendry County's new plan-
ner Lynnee Rodriguez, who has
only been with county since last
October, predicted 2006 will be a


busy year.. She said most
requests filed so far are to
change a land use from agricul-
ture to residential or from low
density residential to higher den-
sity.
In all of 2005, 11 Comprehen-
sive Land Use amendments and
24 rezoning applications were
filed for all of unincorporated
Hendry County. Also during
2005, there were two special
event permits, 37 vested rights
(requests to be "grandfathered"
before a zoning change), and 12

Showing off at dog show


By Ideybis Gonzalez
CLE\\iSTONr Maria Wells,
a local resident of Cle\isio-n,.
known to many by Ms- We\lls
who is partly oI the.Clt'ewisti':n Mid-
dle Scho:,l orice staff. Ms. Wells
is a .dedicated and loving
rescue ifster home provider for
Alaskan Malanmults :here in
Hendry Count. She \was part of a
yenr special show, and without .a
doubt she participated \-ith great
joy.
According to Ms. Wells, she
received a call in April of 2005
.from the lady in charge of public
Education for her particular
breed, which is the Alaskan Mala-
m ie and aas as-ked if she \\ could
be willing to be in charge of the
Meet The Breed Booth for the-
Eukanuba Dog Show.
The sho',\ 'ook place Jan, 14-
15, in Tampa, at the Tampa Con-
vention Center. The top 25 of
each breed were invited to com-
pete in this prestigious event.
There was an entry of 2,648 dogs

Dog Show in Tampa.
work and decorate their breed's
booth at the show:
The purpose of having a Meet
The Breed Booth is to educate
the public by having representa-
tives of the breed in the booth for
hands on experience. Each
booth has knowledgeable club
members to answer questions
about the breed. At the Meet The
Breed booths the public is provid-
ed answers from owners that
have worked with their breed for
many years and know about the
pros and cons of each breed.


Mrs. Wells was responsible for
the Al-iasan Malamute booth,'
which with a lot of hard work and
enthusiasm turned out to be a
great success, according to Ms.
Wells.
"I am very excited to have
won the fourth place ribbon for
working group," said Ms. Wells.
"It was a great experience for:
me," she added. The ribbon was
awarded to Ms. Wells for her
booth presentation while educat-
ing people about working dogs.
The.AKC has booth competi-
tions and awards a first through
fourth placement for each of the
groups with a final Best In Show
Booth Award. The groups are
Sporting, Hound, Working, Terri-
er, Toy, Non-sporting and Herd-
ing. Her breed was part of the
working group with 23 different
breeds represented.
And with a big smile on her
face she said, "It took months of
preparation, getting ideas of how
we were going to decorate the
booth within the size limit and
getting the materials for the deco-
rations and the educational mate-
rials it was hard work but lots
offun."

Lessons from the fishermen


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Named after the legendary
founder of Ranger Boats, Forrest L.
Wood, FLW Outdoors administers
eight national fishing tournament
circuits. Unless you boycotted
Clewiston last weekend, you know
that the FLWwas here with 200 pro
fishing teams.
Each pro has his or her special
techniques and multiple rods for
multiple ways of fishing. Some
were more successful than others.
Mike Hawkes took the lead on day
one, but didn't make the final top
10 by day two. The pros who
caught the largest bass each day
also did not make the final top 10.
Flipping artist Tommy Biffle.
jumped into the overall lead by day
two, and Mark Hardin jumped
from 102 to fourth place.
You can flip, plop, spin, or drop
to catch fish, depending on how
they are biting and what you can
entice them to take. Not all of the
fish stay caught. One of the pros
stated that you are successful if you
get 70 percent in the boat when
you are flipping the lily pads. And
then, water conditions change, as
do the areas where fish are biting.
The very first words of Jesus
when He and Peter met at the
waters were, "Follow me, and I will
make you a fisher of men." His very
last words to Peter, again down at
the waters of the Sea of Galilee, and
after His resurrection, were, "Feed
my sheep, follow me." From begin-
ning to end this is the mission of the
Church.
So, what are some of the tips we
need to remember as we fish for
disciples and follow Christ?
Remember five lessons from the
FLW tournament. First, you have to
go where the fish are. Be with peo-
ple on their own turf. Second, be
creative. We don't have to do things
the same old way. Be willing to try

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it
true that burnt motor oil is a reme-
dyfor mange? Joe in Canal Point.
Answer: Thanks for bringing
that up Joe! It is something I hear
every now and then, and the
answer is NO! That may have been
an old-rumored remedy, but it is
something that causes severe poi-
soning to the dog! Today, there are
wonderful and safe treatments for
all types of mange. Thank you Joe.
That was an important one to get
out there and get cleared! Take
care, Doc Savvy.
Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
What is the gestation period for a
cow? Thanks, Amanda in Clewis-
ton,
Answer Hey Amanda! The time
it takes for a cow's pregnancy or
gestation is about 280 days. Hope
that answers the question!


different techniques under different
conditions. Not every technique
will work every time. Third, be
patient and persistent. The overall
winner is not necessarily the one
who is leading at the beginning or
the one who lands the biggest fish.
Fourth, enjoy the experience.
The most content are those who
believe a bad day of fishing is better
than a good day doing nothing. Cel-
ebrate with those who do well.
One day it will be your turn. Fifth,
regardless of the size of your catch,
do everything in your power to
keep them alive. Afterwards,
release them that they might con-
tinue to grow.
If you've ever seen pelicans in
action, you know they're great fish-
ermen (or fisher-birds, I suppose!) I
read about some pelicans in Cali-
fornia, which made their home
near a fleet of fishing boats. When
the boats came in, the crew would
clean their catch and throw the
heads and scraps into the water.
The pelicans picked up on this, and
began eating the leftovers without
having to go out "fishing". For
weeks on end these pelicans
enjoyed their effortless bounty.
They just sat by the harbor and
waited for the fishing boats to
come in.
After a while, the boats found
out they could sell the fish waste, so
they stopped chucking it into the
water. The pelicans were caught
unprepared. They continued to sit
and wait for the fishing boats to
come in and throw free food in the
water, but none came. The peli-
cans grew thinner and thinner, until
worried wildlife officials came to
check outwhat was-going on. The
officials concluded that the'.peli-
cans had forgotten how to fish. To
solve the problem, they brought in
pelicans from another area to join
the flock and teach the starving
birds how to fish again.
Go thou and do likewise.

Wildlife experts headline festival


Big O Birding
Festival set
for Jan. 27-29

Dr. Jerome Jackson, one of the
world experts on the Ivory-billed
woodpecker, will be the keynote
speaker at the Big O Birding Festi-
val, Saturday, Jan. 28, at 7 p.m. at
the Riverview Restaurant at the
Glades Resort, formerly Hendry
Isles, on SR 80 near LaBelle. A
reception and book signing pre-
cedes the event, beginning at 6:30
p.m.
Long believed to be extinct,
the confirmed sighting of an
ivory-billed woodpecker in
Arkansas in April, the first in 60
years, is considered one of the big
orithnological discoveries of this
century, and reservations for Dr.
Jackson's address are coming in
daily, according to Glades County
Economic Development Council
Executive Director and Birding
Festival Committee Chairman
Tracy Whirls.
Dr. Jackson's keynote address
Saturday night, is but one high-
light of a festival schedule packed
with lectures, exhibits, birding
tours and demonstrations by
renowned birders and naturalists.
(Arts and Crafts show begins Fri-
day, continues through Sunday.}
The festival kicks off Friday
with the annual Arts and Crafts
Festival at the Doyle Conner Build-
ing in Moore Haven. During Friday
afternoon and throughout Satur-
day and Sunday, birding artists
and photographers will join other
artists, artisans and crafters in dis-
playing a variety of items, includ-
ing beverages and food, for sale.


Vendors will also donate door
prizes, which will be awarded
during drawings throughout the
festival.
Among the 26 vendors who
had signed up for the festival
Monday, renowned bird artist
Lydia C. Thompson will travel
from her home in St. Simons
Island, Ga. to display her wonder-
ful color etchings of birds, and
will offer prints, cards and T-shirts
with her original artwork at the
festival. Robert Kirby of Sebastian,
a regular at the Pelican Island
birding festival and similar events
will bring his pop bottle art,
including fish mobiles made from
plastic soda bottles, egrets made
from styrene and spinner bottles
to the Doyle Conner Building in
Moore Haven.
Other vendors will offer hot
roasted corn on the cob, soft pret-
zels, stuffed bratwurst, ribs and
chicken, swamp cabbage salsa
and other treats to temp the
palate and for those tired out from
a long day of birding and brows-
ing, Sharon Zack of Longwood
Florida will be on hand to per-
form seated massage.
The arts and crafts show,
which opens at 1 p.m. Friday and
continues through 3 p.m. Sunday,
is free and open to the public.

Welcome reception
A welcome reception spon-
sored by the Clewiston Chamber
of Commerce will begin Friday at
5 p.m. Glades County Property
Appraiser and birding enthusiast
Larry Luckey will regale those
attending the reception with sto-
ries of his experiences birding in
some of Glades and Hendry


County's premier birding sites,
including those in the just
released Southern Section of the
Great Florida Birding Trail. The
reception features gator tail, frog
legs, swamp cabbage and other
southern specialties prepared by
Dean's Catering. Attendance at
the welcome reception is includ-
ed with the $25 pre-registration.
At 7 p.m., birders will load up
on vans, provided courtesy of
Sugarland Tours and Sunburst
Tours, and travel to Burnt Bridge
at Fisheating Creek, for the annual
Owl Hoot, during which Glades
County Commissioner Alvin Ward
and Mr. Luckey will call owls and
perhaps even turkeys for the
attendees viewing and photo-op
pleasure.
On Saturday, birders can tour
eagle nesting sites at Brighton
Seminole Indian Reservation, or
go on A Barn Owl Tour, spon-
sored by the Sugarland Tours. On
Sunday, a tour of Diner Island, a
former Cracker ranch, now
wildlife management area and
panther habitat is on tap. "Birding
by Canoe," on the pristine
Fisheating Creek is an option
either day.
In between tours, beginning
birders and experienced birding
enthusiasts can enjoy a wide
selection of lectures, exhibits and
demonstrations all day Saturday
at the Doyle Conner Building in
Moore Haven. Lectures include
presentations by the Audubon
Birds of Prey Center, Florida Bat
Center, Whooping Cranes and
Sandhill Cranes, Gardening for
Birds, Beginning Birding, and
Birds of the Lake Okeechobee
Region.


Kids are for the
birds Saturday
As if birding tours, lectures and
an arts and crafts festival weren't
enough, from 8 a.m. until noon,
Saturday, Jan. 28 a new children's
activity event is slated for Tom
Perry Memorial Park (City Park) in
Moore Haven.
The "Kids are for the Birds and
the bats, and the butterflies and
the bullfrogs and the bees event is
intended to promote interest in
ecology among the younger set, by
including activities ranging from
birdhouse building to gardening
demonstration projects to attract
birds and butterflies, to live native
avian and mammal exhibits.
Highlights of the "Kids are for
the Birds" event include educa-
tional exhibits by the Busch
Wildlife Sanctuary, the Audubon
Birds of Prey Center and Florida
Bat Center.
University of Florida graduate
student Jason Martin, host of Sug-
arland Tours popular barn owl
tour Saturday afternoon will give
kids (and adults who aren't
squeamish!) the opportunity to
dissect owl pellets, while talking
about Florida's native owls.
Other activities include garden-
ing to attract birds and butterflies,
birdhouse building, and presenta-
tion of awards from the Big O Bird-
ing Festival Art Contest, held this
week in Glades County's elemen-
tary schools. Prizes for the art con-
test are sponsored by Riverwatch
and Glades Area McDonalds.

Lions establish scholarship; announce Valentine's Ball


CLEWISTON The Clewis-
ton Lions Club has founded the
Dan McCarthy Memorial Schol-
arship and will host a Valentine's
Ball Saturday, Feb. 11 at John
Boy Auditorium.
The Valentine's Ball will
begin at 8 p.m. and last until
midnight with music provided
by The Jukebox Band, who will
provide a full range of music for
both dancing and listening
pleasure. The event will also fea-
ture a silent auction, hors d'oeu-
vre and a cash bar. Tickets are

$75 per couple and may be pur-
chased from any Lion.
The Valentine's Ball will be
planned as an annual event with
total proceeds going to the Dan
McCarthy Memorial Scholarship
Fund. Mr. McCarthy, who died
this past year, was a member of
the Clewiston Lions Club for
over 54 years and served as its
president in 1958, and was the
recipient of the prestigious
Melvin Jones Fellowship Award
from Lions International.
In 1925, Helen Keller
addressed the Lions internation-
al convention in Cedar Point,
Ohio. She challenged Lions to
become, "knights of the blind in
the crusade against darkness."
From that time, Lions clubs have

Scholarship fund.
been actively involved in service Dan McCarthy, during his
to the blind and visually years as a Lion, was a passionate
impaired. advocate for helping those with


eye vision problems and his
commitment resulted in the
local club creating this scholar-
ship fund in his name. The Dan
McCarthy Memorial Scholarship
will be awarded annually to a
graduate of any Hendry County
high school. Applicants must
have vision impairments as cer-
tified by the school system, must
have maintained at least a 2.0
grade point average, and be a
good citizen. Students with certi-
fied hearing impairments,
another cause of Lions, may also
apply.
The recipient will be selected
by the local Lions club and will
receive-an $8,000 scholarship,
payable in annual installments
of $2,000 based on satisfactory
progress in an accredited col-
lege. The scholarship can also
be awarded for attendance at a
trade or technical school with
the amount not to exceed $2,000
peryear.
Students interested in apply-
ing should contact their high
school guidance counselor for
additional information.
Local citizens and businesses
interested in contributing to the
fund, which is administered as a
recognized 501c(3) not for profit
entity, should contact Lions Sec-
retary Jeff Barwick at 983-7542.


The reverend Samuel S.,
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Recently there have been sev-
eral news items about identity
theft. The crime is a sophisticat-
ed one and newscasters are con-
tinually warning people about
protecting their passwords, PIN
numbers, and other numbers
used for identification.
A while ago, his bank advised
a clergy friend that someone
showed up and attempted to
open an account in his name.
One of the bank employees hap-
pened to know him and told the
others that the person was not
that minister. He went to the
bank, the impersonator left
when he realized that there was
a delay in processing the papers
he falsely submitted, and then
the problem began.
He was asked for identifica-
tion, but documents that had
been readily accepted in the past
were now scrutinized. The min-
ister was left to wonder, "How
do you really prove you are
you?"
I was once asked to prove I
was a member of the clergy. I
provided copies of my ordina-
tion certificates, my licensure to
officiate, a list of national church
offices where I was registered
and copies of authorizations to
serve on church boards, coun-
cils and offices. Apparently it
was enough the officials who
asked never bothered me again.
The question comes up every
once and awhile when someone
is defrauded or impersonated:
"How do you prove you are
you?"
The Lord faced the question
too. He began to teach and peo-
ple began to ask, "Isn't this the
carpenter, the son of Mary and
brother of James and Jose's and
Judas and Simon?" (Mark 6:3)


He asks his disciples, "Who do
men say who the son of man is?"
(Mathew 16:13) and goes on to
hear the affirmations of Peter,
"You are the Christ, the son of
the living God."
It wasn't that Jesus didn't
know who he was or that some-
one was trying to steal his identi-
ty, but it was important to others
to recognize him as the one sent
of God and the one who was to
fulfill the prophesies. Actually,
my identity isn't important to
me: I know who I am. It is
important for each of us to know
that others will recognize us for
who we are and that they see us
truly and with accuracy.
There was an apocryphal tale
that I heard about someone who
spent his life trying to be some-
one else and when he came to
the end of his life he was over-
looked by the Lord. When he
asked him about it, the Lord
answered, "I looked for you, but
you were nowhere to be found. I
thought you were somebody
else!"
It's important first and fore-
most that we are who we are;
that, after all, is who God creat-
ed. The identity that God has
given us is for each of us and
nobody can steal it from us if we
don't want to lose it.
In the final moment, that's an
identity that can't be taken and
what others will see in us in this
life and the life to come. If there
are things people are unhappy
about with who they are, they
should work to change for the
better. If there are weaknesses,
they should work to overcome
them. If there are faults, they
should work to correct them.
Never, though, should we reject
who we are, try to be someone
else, misrepresent our being to
others, deny what God has
made.
That is what God has created


and that bears his imprint and,
as one minister put it, "God
don't make no junk!" That's the
identity that will be recognized
finally when all of the docu-
ments are questioned, all of the
records are missing, all of the
human means fail. Identity?
Matthew 7:16, "You will know


them by their fruits."
We will ultimately be known
by God and others by being who
vie are intended to be by him
and working to be the best one
of us that there ever is to be. The
gift that comes with that identity
is being known for who we are.
That brings joy.

House increased as family grew


By Harry Hulsey
Introduction by MaryAnn Morris
Thanks to Katherine Worth of
Buckhead Ridge and her cousin
Wanda Worth Hall, now living in
Sarasota, we have heard from
another "Okeechobeean" from the
past. Their cousin, Harry Hulsey,
now 82 years old, remembers
growing up in East Okeechobee in
the 1920s and 1930s.
There were four siblings in our
family during growing up years in
East Okeechobee on Hancock
Street. We lived only two blocks
from Judge H.H. Hancock and his
wife. I believe all their children
were adults in 1925 when my dad
built the first portion of our house. I
was then two years old. My brother,
Bill, was born in 1925. A sister,
Vivian, was born in 1928, and Sally,
the last child, was born in 1930.
The house grew as the family
increased in size. Usually, Daddy
found a house somewhere that
was to be moved or torn down,
purchased it and took it apart as
material for the next addition. From
the time I was old enough to swing
a hammer, I remember pulling
nails from the boards and straight-
ening the nails on the top end of a
pine chopping block, to be reused.
Nothing was wasted. But indoor
plumbing, we had not. The toilet
was out behind the house. I
remember that once, Bill swal-
lowed a quarter. Back then, as the
saying goes, "money didn't grow
on trees." In fact it was downright
scarce. The county hired a man
who ran a route among all the out-
door toilets and emptied all the
"catch" buckets into a tank he car-
ried on his Model T Ford truck. My
mother was not about to let that
quarter be carried to the dump
without due effort, but she was
more concerned about having pos-
itive knowledge that the coin was
not lodged somewhere in Bill's
,g"'c tract, with possible inter-
nal damage. The search became a
family project, and indeed, the
quarter was found, readily recog-
nizable, but lacking its former shiny
surfaces.
Recently I received an Email that
I have been unable to discover an
author for. But whoever that per-
son is, he or she dated themselves
with it. No one could write with
such clarity on a subject from just
hearsay. I attach it here for your
judgment:

The House
Behind The House
One of my fondest memories
As I recall the days of yore
Was the little house, behind the
house,
With the crescent o'er the door.
'Twas a place to sit and ponder
With your head all bowed
down low;
Knowing that you wouldn't be
there,
If you didn't have to go.
Ours was a multi-holer, three,
With a size for every one.
You left there feeling better,
After.your job was done.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history



-' ....


You had to make those frequent
trips
In snow, rain, sleet, or fog -
To that little house where you
usually
Found the Sears-Roebuck cata-
log.
Oft times in dead of winter,
The seat was spread with snow.
Twas then with much reluc-
tance,
To that little house you'd go.
With a swish you'd clear that
wooden seat,
Bend low, with dreadful fear


You'd shut your eyes and grit
your teeth
As you settled on your rear.
I recall the day ol' Granddad,
Who stayed with us one sum-
mer,
Made a trip out to that little
house
Which proved to be a bummer.

'Twas the same day that my Dad
had
Finished painting the kitchen
green.
He'd just cleaned up the mess
he'd made
With rags and gasoline,
He tossed the rags down in the
hole
Went on his usual way
Not knowing that by doing so
He'd eventually rue the day.
Now Granddad had an urgent
call,
I never will forget!
This trip he made to the little
house
Stays in my memory yet.

Pet of the Week winner
Maya has come a long way from her troubled beginnings
as an abused dog to relishing corn on the cob by her
now owners Dave and Ellie Schlager of Clewiston. Maya
is estimated to be between 6-8 years old and was adopt-
ed by the Schlagers two years ago from the Key Largo
Animal Shelter. Maya spent her first two months with the
Schlagers hiding in fear before realizing she was i,.:"v
with someone Who would' love her and take care of her.
From being scared of everything to lapping up golden
delicious corn, it's easy to see why her owners say,
"Today you wouldn't know she was the same dog we
adopted." Her owners report that Maya is as outgoing as
any happy-go-lucky dog and is loving life again. Well
Maya, hope you love your day of pampering at Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital because you are this week's Pet
of the Week winner and have won a day at Doc Savvy's
for a special day at the spa. If you have any interesting
photos of your pet, or a great story to tell, e-mail them to
me at myoung@newszap.com for a chance to win your
special pet a special day. Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital is
located in Belle Glade and she can be reached at (561)

He sat down on the wooden
seat,
With both feet on the floor.
He filled his pipe and tapped it
down
And struck a match on the out-
house door.

He lit the pipe and sure enough,
it soon began to glow.
He slowly raised his rear a bit
And tossed the flaming match
below.

The blast that followed, I am
told
Was heard for miles around;
And there was poor ol' Grand-
dad
Sprawled out there on the
ground.
The smoldering pipe still in his
mouth,
His eyes were shut real tight;
The celebrated three-holer
Was blown clear out of sight.
We asked him what had hap-
pened,
What he said I'll ne'er forget.
He said he thought it must have
been
The pinto beans he et!

Next daywe had a new one
Dad put it up with ease.
But this one had a door sign
that read: "No Smoking,
Please!"
Now that's the story's end my
friend,
Of memories long ago,
When we went to the house
behind the house,
because we had to go.
For those who never had to trot
out in the Cold.....
Just Give Thanks!

Clewiston native featured in Ebony Magazine


Submitted to INI
Tekoa Summers, a Clewiston native, is featured with two other
Ebony Magazine honorees in their upcoming feature, "30
Leaders Under 30" to appear in the February edition of Ebony.


CLEWISTON Tekoa Sum-
mers was recently recognized
for her leadership ability and
community service in the
upcoming February issue of
Ebony Magazine. Ms. Summers
was selected among thousands
as "One of America's 30 Young
Leaders Under 30".
A native of Clewiston, Tekoa
attended Clewiston High School
where she served as vice presi-
dent of her class for four consec-
utive years and was voted as
runner up for Homecoming
Queen.
Upon graduation Tekoa was
voted "Most Likely Too Suc-
ceed".
That prophecy has surely
come to past, since graduation
she has obtained a Bachelor's


degree in Criminal Justice and a
minor in Legal Studies from the
University of Central Florida
(UCF). While at the university
she led the UCF Mock Trial Team
to 3rd place at nationals, as well
as established UCF's Women's
Prayer Band. Women's Prayer
Band is a Christian organization
at UCF whose mission is to
encourage students to live
moral and healthy lifestyles.
Professionally, Tekoa is the
director of operations for a
Sprint-Nextel franchise and the
CEO and Founder of H.O.P.E.
(Helping Others Pursue Excel-
lence). H.O.P.E. is a self empow-
erment and motivational speak-
ing establishment. Through this
company, she travels the world
impacting thousands of lives.


Ms. Summers' audience
includes high schools, colleges,
juvenile centers, prisons, com-
munity and social organizations.
In addition, her company has
provided professional develop-
ment workshops and seminars
for several corporations. She has
delivered speeches for FedEx
headquarters, Exit Realty Inc.,
Tech Solutions Inc. and various
Sprint-Nextel franchises.
Although ambition drives
her, it has been her past that
compels her to help others. Dur-
ing her youth she suffered great
tragedies. At the tender age of
14, her mother died unexpect-
edly, leaving five kids to mourn.
However, her misfortune didn't
end there, less than two years
after the loss of her mother, her


father passed away. At the age of
16 years old, Tekoa had to cope
with feelings of abandonment,
depression, loneliness and low
self-esteem.
Despite the obstacles she
faced, she chose the road less
taken, she persevered. She
vowed not to give up on her
dreams, and promised that she
would strive to make her belat-
ed parents proud.
She has kept that promise by
motivating people of all ages to
persevere in the face of adversi-
ty. With her recent accomplish-
ment, Tekoa Summers is a living
testament that you can turn your
stumbling blocks into stepping
stones, your misery into motiva-
tion and your dreams into reali-
ty.


Local leaders vote against EAA flood plan


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
And Mark Young
Lake Okeechobee The Tri-
Cities Board, a board that con-
sists of the elected officials of the
cities of Belle Glade, South Bay
and Pahokee, on Monday reject-
ed a proposal to flood the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area. Making
the argument that the flooding
could essentially tie up hundreds
of thousands of acres at a time,
the leaders were adamant in
their opposition to the plan.
"The bottom line is that we
are in the EAA. The proposal
made by folks in Lee County,"
South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony said, "is to flood that
area- including our cities."
The vote came moments after
a presentation by the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, who covered the positive
and negative effects of the meas-
ure. By their account, the plan is
set to create more problems
than it sets out to solve.
"No, it doesn't make the estu-
aries any better," Chip Merriam
with the SFMWD said at the
meeting. "The restudy analysis
could not justify the cost of buy-
ing land and building a huge
reservoir that is underutilized in
most years."
The plan as it calls for now
would essentially turn many


acres of land in the Everglades
Agricultural Area into storage
areas for water from Lake Okee-
chobee when it becomes neces-
sary, with the idea that the water
will not further damage local
estuaries.
The plan costs, by SFWMD's
estimation, is $4 billion, an
amount representatives of the
district said can be used to find
other less invasive alternatives
that may provide a permanent
solution. "There is one job lost
for every 20 acres of land," said
Mr. Merriam. "This is something
we need to be mindful of. This
creates new problems for us to
deal with."
Directly affected by the pro-
posal, residents at the meeting
expressed concern.
Mary Ross Wilkerson, a resi-
dent of Belle Glade, asked, "If it
rains, what are we going to do?
Swim? I don't think we the peo-
ple should be suffering."
Leaders said they will work
together in fighting the proposal.
The tri-cities board voted unani-
mously to oppose any plan that
proposes to flood the EAA.
"The folks in Lee County are
saying, 'Why don't we flood this
entire area?'" Mayor Anthony
said. "Even if you do that, it does-
n't work. And you take out a big
economic area." The mayor
called his neighboring elected


officials to oppose the measure.
"We need to become as active as
other counties. The cities yelling
the loudest will be heard."
Mayor J.P. Sasser from Paho-
kee agreed with Mayor Anthony.
"To me, we're being asked to
correct a problem we didn't cre-
ate, once again. Why don't they
put some of the water on their
property?"
A question even Congress-
man Mark Foley once asked offi-
cials of Lee County as well. Areas
affected by the. Lee County pro-
posal include Western Palm
Beach County, Hendry County,
and Glades County. Every repre-
sentative in all three regions have
been adamantly opposed to the
suggestion that their very liveli-
hood be destroyed for the sake of
Lee County property prices.
Research conducted by a
group of Moore Haven High
School students show that pollu-
tants coming out of Lake Okee-
chobee and running into the
Caloosahatchee River, is far less
than pollutants coming from
urban development in the Cape
Coral and Tampa areas.
The city of Sanibel sparked
this controversy a few weeks ago
by threatening litigation against
the SFWMD to halt water releas-
es, alleging Lake Okeechobee
pollutants were causing algae
blooms and destroying estuaries.


Lee County Commissioner Ray
Judah then implied that the sug-
arcane fields surrounding the
lake should be flooded with the
excess water and virtual finger
pointing began with accusations
leveled at lake area communi-
ties.
Glades County has already
stated that Lee County needs to
do more research as to who is
really to blame and is calling for
everyone involved to work
together to solve a common
problem. And while Glades
County clearly puts the onus on
other areas, admits that, "We are
all polluters and we are all
responsible, so we all should
work together."
It has also been reported that
Hendry County has donated
$25,000 to the Army Corps of
Engineers to help in the pending
legal battle, although the city of
Sanibel is claiming they have
already raised $1 million towards
the upcoming litigation, without
having to pass a referendum
onto the voters.
All three regions are preparing
for a battle they did not choose
and all three regions agree on
one common item: No one will
win in litigation and the ultimate
loser will be the taxpayer who
has to flip the bill for government
vs. government litigation.

Fukae wins FLW season opener


By Mark Young
And Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON What a dif-
ference a year makes. That old
adage has now become a battle
cry for Shinichi Fukae, a native
of Japan, but a resident of Mine-
loa, Texas. Fukae, a FLW touring
pro finished last year's season
opening tournament in a disap-
pointing 140th place, but one
year later, Fukae wrapped up the
tournament title with a $100,000
payday.
Despite sometimes strug-
gling with the English language,
Fukae's charming manner and
big smile has made him a crowd
favorite over the last few years
and with his ever present smile
beaming as wide as ever, his
wife Miyuki was happy t wins
Wal-Mart FLW Tour openerhis
year to devote his time to prac-
tice fishing Lake Okeechobee
and despite fishing a lake that
can change from day to day, his
efforts paid off in a big time
way.
The 2004 Angler of the Year
actually proved the point that
just because you see fish in one
spot, doesn't mean they will be
there the next day. While bass
can be very territorial, they also
have a challenge of a lake that
has seen some major changes
with record breaking storm sea-
sons and will move to where
they need to be.
Fukae spent much of his
practice fishing in Moonshine
Bay, an area of the lake that was
expected to pay off for many
anglers this tournament due to
its water clarity. But Fukae
moved off out of the bay after
the area was inundated with
anglers and found his way to the
shallow waters in South Bay
where he would find the bulk of
his fish.
Fukae overcame Keith Pace
who led the field going into the
final day of fishing and last
year's FLW Lake Okeechobee
champion Kelly Jordan who had
been hot on the heels of Pace
after trailing the leader by 1.3
pounds. Fukae was behind them
both and had the 2001 FLW


Lake Okeechobee champion
David Fritts right behind him.
Fukae's 28-plus pounds vault-
ed him over the competition to
take the first place grand prize.
Chip Harrison also had a better
final day, climbing from the bot-
tom five after day one of the
finals to claim second place and
a payday worth $36,000.
Pace would settle on third
place and a $25,000 check while
Jordan dropped to fourth to
earn $20,000. Fritts dropped to
fifth to take home $18,000.
The tournament paid out 75
places on both the professional
and co-angler sides. Clewiston's
own Scott Martin ended the
tournament in 42nd to earn
$10,000 and Florida favorite
Bobby Lane, from Lakeland, fin-
ished right behind Martin to
earn the same amount.
It would be a Georgia angler
by the name of Tim Johnson to
take the top co-angler prize
worth $20,000 after tournament
favorite Darrel Stevens, who led
the field after the first day, strug-
gled to drop to tenth place over-
all.
Johnson earned a $20,000
victory with five bass weighing 8
pounds, 9 ounces. He caught
the bass casting a Rat-L-Trap to
an open-water ditch while fish-
ing with Fritts. The ditch
dropped from one to five feet
and, according to Johnson,
appeared to be a spawning area.
"This feels great," said John-
son, who has earned two top-
10s in Wal-Mart Bass Fishing
League competition since 2003.
"This is the first tournament that
I've ever fished as a co-angler. I
normally fish as a boater, and I
thought that it would be hard
fishing in the back of the boat,
but I had three terrific partners
this week."
Rounding out the top five co-
anglers were Fred Martin of
North Little Rock, Ark. (four
bass, 6 pounds, 9 ounces,
$10,000); Ron Chapman of Lake
Quivira, Kan. (three bass, 6
pounds, 8 ounces, $9,000);
Randy Clark of Mobile, Ala. (five
bass, 5 pounds, 13 ounces,
$8,000) and James Fredieu of


I-r.. Y I r


Shinichi Fukae, 2006 FLW Tour Lake Okeechobee Champion,
vaulted into first place on day four after a staggering day's
catch on Lake Okeechobee. Fukae, originally from Japan,
now lives in Mineola, TX with his wife Miyuki.

Clewiston's Judy Israel gave her hometown a
great showing by placing 26th overall on the
co-angler division.


Saint Martinville, La. (three bass,
5 pounds, 3 ounces, $7,000).
Overall, 48 bass weighing 100
pounds, 8 ounces, including
eight five-bass limits, were
caught Saturday by the 10 pro
finalists.
The next FLW Tour stop will
be the $1.25 million Chevy Open
on Lake Murray in Columbia,
S.C., February 8-11 followed by
a stop presented by A&W Root
Beer on Pickwick Lake in Flo-
rence, Ala., March 1-4. The $1.25
million Wal-Mart Open powered
by Tyson will visit Beaver Lake in
Rogers, Ark., April 5-8, then it's
off to Kentucky Lake May 10-13
for a tournament presented by
Pedigree. The final regular-sea-
son stop, presented by Kel-
logg's, runs June 21-24 on Lake
Champlain in Plattsburgh, N.Y.
Each tournament takes the
world's best anglers a step clos-
er to the $1.5 million Wal-Mart
FLW Tour Championship and
Outdoor Show presented by
Castrol, which will be held Aug.
2-5 on Lpgan Martin Lake in


Birmingham, Ala. The presti-
gious championship hosted by
Birmingham, Pell City and St.
Clair County features 48 pros, 48
co-anglers and bass fishing's
largest guaranteed cash award -
a $500,000 first-place prize for
the winning pro. Held in con-
junction with the tournament is
a world-class outdoor show fea-
turing more than 140 exhibits.
Coverage of the Lake Okee-
chobee tournament will be
broadcast to 78 million FSN (Fox
Sports Net) subscribers in the
United States as part of the
"FLW Outdoors" television pro-
grams airing Feb. 19 and Feb. 26.
"FLW Outdoors" airs Sunday
mornings at 11 Eastern time.
"FLW Outdoors" is also broad-
cast internationally to more than
300 million households in such
countries as Germany, China,
South Africa, Australia,
Malaysia, Russia, Hungary and
the United Kingdom, making it
the most widely distributed
weekly outdoor-sports televi-
sion show in the world. Addi-


IINI/DIII ra- ian
Professional Angler Mike Surman, champion of the inau-
gural FLW Lake Okeechobee Tournament in 1996, hoists
one of Okeechobee's largemouth big boys. Local resi-
dents participated in the tournament, including Scott Mar-
tin, who came in 42nd in the field of 200 with winnings of
$10,000. Asa Godsey (123rd) and Mark Fann (184th) are


also Clewiston residents.
tionally, FLW Outdoors is proud
to provide tournament coverage
to more than 800,000 service
members stationed around the
world in 177 countries and
aboard naval ships through
broadcasts on the American
Forces Network.
Clewiston's Judy Israel gave
her hometown a great showing
by placing 26th overall on the
co-angler division.
You have to drop down into
the 50s before finding any other
Florida anglers that knows Lake
Okeechobee well enough to call
it a home lake. Dererk Savage,
from West Palm finished 57th,
and Wellington's Jimmey Shel-
ton ended up 59th with both
angler collecting $600 for their
efforts.


The top anglers will be look-
ing to protect the points they
gained in this year's season
opener as the tournament trail
heads to South Carolina to fish
Lake Murray in the second of
seven tournaments on Feb. 8.
Those anglers who found Okee-
chobee's version of the "The
Lady in Black" or the lake "Too
Tough to Tame" will be looking
to Lake Murray for some kind of
resurgence in keeping their
hopes alive for the grand title of
2006 FLW overall champion.
That honor will be bestowed in
early August when the trail
wraps up with the FLW champi-
onship in Birmingham, Alaba-
ma.
Castrol will be sponsoring
the end of season event.


Clewiston gals win the '06 state soccer championship


By Mark Young


CLEWISTON Coach Jairo
Sanchez was born in Columbia,
South.America and played soc-
cer in the streets while teaching
himself all the skills necessary to
not only play the game, but
eventually to pass on his knowl-
edge to the youth of Clewiston.
Sanches arrived in Clewiston
from Canada in July of 2001 and
that's when an unexpected jour-
ney first began.
Sanchez didn't come to
Clewiston to teach soccer to this
city's young girls, but coinci-
dence and fate would prove
that to be the case when Mr. and
Mrs. Sanchez enrolled their two
young twin daughters into the
U-10 American Youth Soccer
Organization (AYSO) program.
Despite their father's back-
ground, the young girls were
equally new to the sport as most
of their teammates, but showed
their father's flair for the game.
Sanchez coached his first year
for the U-10 squad and didn't get
his squad past the semi-finals in
2003, but having received the
taste for state competition, set
out to create his version of a
"dream team."
He implemented the philoso-
phies of a championship dream,
which meant putting in the
hours of hard work that past
state champions were notorious
for and the following year, in
2004, accomplished what no
other Clewiston squad had been
able to do making it to the
semi-finals and winning a
thrilling overtime victory against
Ocala to finish third in the state.
In 2005, he repeated his
team's semi-final appearance,
this time with the U-12 team and
under extreme weather condi-
tions, Clewiston once again
added a third place finish to
their city's growing list of youth
soccer accolades.
Understanding what it would
take to surpass their earlier
achievements, Sanchez upped
the anti by squeezing in grueling
practice games against proven
programs from West Palm
Beach and Miami and put more
of an emphasis on conditioning.
Equally important is the willing-
ness of his young team mem-
bers who devoted themselves to
the ideals of training hard and
sacrificing playtime for the
demands of practicing for one
single goal to bring home a
state title.
This month, in Ocala, that
dream became a stark reality as
Clewiston's U-12 squad made
their hometown proud by bring-
ing home state championship
glory, a historic sports accom-


plishment for America's Sweet-
est Town,- -
With the squad's spiritual
leader and calming presence by
their side in assistant coach Irma
Sanchez, 12 Clewiston gals
competing in the U12 state com-
petition embarked on a champi-
onship journey that began in
November and culminated this
month with the ultimate prize.
It was one of five Clewiston.
teams who made the trip, but
only one local squad would
make the finals and win it all.
The state championship tourna-
ment kicked off Jan. 14 as
Clewiston took the field against
an unknown opponent in
Homestead. Homestead didn't
know anything about Clewiston
either, but soon would, as the
trio of Brenda Prudencio, Fanay
Sanchez-Riveros, and IIeana
Sanchez-Riveros took over the
action to spark Clewiston to a 6-
0 victory with the twins, Brooke
Flynn and Leslie Almanza
accounting for the bulk of the
scoring.
The victory swept Clewiston
into competition with Weston, a
team Clewiston knew well from
several pre-season scrimmages.
While Weston always proved to
be a tough opponent, they had
not defeated Clewiston in play
and would not get the victory
this time around as well.
It was a scoreless battle
through much of the action, but
young Ileana broke the dead-
lock with two minutes left in
regulation to give Clewiston a 1-
0 victory, which would pit them
.against one of the host teams
from 'Ocala in third round
action.
Ocala, with more experience
at this level, was favored to
knock off the young Clewiston
team, but with Ocala already
having suffered a 4-3 loss to Key
Largo earlier in the tournament,
Clewiston was primed to knock
the host squad out of the tourna-
ment. Leslie opened up the
scoring early and Ileana sealed
the win late in the game as
Clewiston put together their
third straight shut out victory.
On a cold Monday morning,
Clewiston took the field against
another Homestead team who
played the now tournament
favorite squad from Key Largo
to a 1-1 tie. Homestead would
score the first goal of the tourna-
ment against Clewiston to take
an early lead and held onto it
until late in the game.
Coach Sanchez opted for a
quicker midfield and turned to
Leslie, the twins, Maryly Rico
and Diana Hernandez to turn up
the heat. It only took a couple of
minutes for the move to pay off


Submitted to INI
Clewiston's AYSO state soccer champions brought home Clewiston's first ever AYSO
state title and did it with three shutout victories, one overtime victory, and a pair of to the
end dog fights.


with the tying goal and Kelsie
Moore coming in as Clewiston's
new goaltender proved to be
valuable as Moore fended off
several tough shots to keep
Homestead out of the net to
send the game into overtime.
Clewiston's defense stepped
up their intensity behind the
play of Olivia Rivera, Brooke,
and others, as Clewiston's for-
wards wore down Homestead's
defense to score the winning
goal in the first overtime period.
Clewiston extended their advan-
tage in the second overtime
period and held on to win a 3-2
ball game.
The victory sent Clewiston
into their first ever state champi-
onship finals, already guarantee-
ing to set a new Clewiston stan-
dard in AYSO soccer. A mere
two hours after their grueling
semi-final match with Home-
stead, the girls took the field
against Boynton Beach.
After a first half battle that
ended with goose eggs on the
scoreboard for both squads, it
would be Boynton who would
take the lead early in the second
half. Coach Sanchez made some
key adjustments, which led to
Diana putting Clewiston back in
the mix with the tying goal just
minutes after Boynton's go
ahead score.
The very next trip down the
field for Clewiston saw some
great passing that found Fanya
wide open for the shot and she
made good on the opportunity


to score what would prove to be
the winning goal. The game fea-
tured national referees, one of
which would later compliment
the young Clewiston gals for
their talent and sportsmanship
on the field.
All the teams.that Clewiston
played against in these state
games have soccer year round,
whereas Clewiston does not.
Brooke Flynn was asked if the
state games were the hardest
she ever played. Her comment
that those games were nothing
compared to a regular practice
day with coached by Jairo and
Irma Sanchez.
When asked why she stated
that, "Before practice even
begins we have to run for 15
minutes. And I mean run! Not
jog! Then practice starts for two
hours and after ball handling
and skills are practiced we
scrimmage against coach Jairo
and coach Irma. The whole
team against just the two coach-
es and they always beat the
pants off of us at 10 or 12 to 0!
Now those were tough games!"
In the words of coaches Jairo
and Irma, "This was not only a
victory for the girls and the
coaches; this was not only a vic-
tory for the parents and the
small town of Clewiston, but a
lesson to all of us that hard
work, dedication and persever-
ance pay off big time. Without
the commitment made by all the
player's parents there would be
no victory. Teamwork includes


parent's dedication and support,
players' hard work and willing-
ness to go the extra mile and the
coaches' determination. This is
what defines a victory. This
teams hard work and dedication
is an honorable example to the
city of Clewiston. It is with great
pride and joy that we dedicate
this state championship to our
12 special girls. I would like to
share with you what makes
each player special to us and a
valuable member of this cham-
pionship team.
"Jersey #2 Brooke Flynn:
At only 49" tall she is a pack of
dynamite. Great at defense, she
is not afraid of other players
who are three times her size.
Brooke is an indispensable
strong defender. She has the
heart of a lion. And since she
always smiles her pretty smile,
even while playing her hardest,
makes her a joy to have on any
team.
Jersey #3 Kelsie Moore:
One or our goalkeepers who is
only a couple of inches taller
than Brooke. No ball can pass
our very skilled Kelsie. With her
pretty Barbie doll face who
would think that she was as
tough as a linebacker.
Jersey #4 Olivia Rivera:
Another fighter who is very
strong and quick on defense.
Who would think that this quiet
shy little girl can put on such a
fight on the field?
Jersey #5 Ileana Sanchez-
Riveros: She knows how to


organize the team- and where to
put the ball. Her mind, game
and skills are amazing. Her pret-
ty face and her timidity give her
a special charm.
Jersey #6 Fanya Sanchez-
Riveros: Her quick thinking and
strong skills make her a good
player in every single position.
Her slim body and pretty face
make her a little Mia Hamm
look-a-like.
Jersey #7 Angela Foun-
tain: Amazing! This is Angela's
first year playing soccer and she
is an awesome goalkeeper and
very strong as a defensive play-
er. Angela's good sense of
humor was a definite bonus to
our team.
Jersey #8 Elizabeth
Minero: A very strong defender
and one of the best fighters. Eliz-
abeth couldn't make it to state
due to an injury but remained a
part of the team until the end.
Jersey #9 Brenda Pruden-
cio: Couldn't practice with the
team during pre-season due to a
broken wrist, but was ready for
the state tournament as a very
strong forward with a never-
ending smile.
Jersey #10 Leslie Alman-
za: Leslie is a synonym for
speed, with her long legs she
makes any opponent tremble in
their shin guards: Any opposing
coach is sure to worry when
Leslie takes off down the field.
Jersey #11 Diana Hernan-
dez: One of the strongest and
fastest defenders Diana's confi-
dence and skills make her a very
good forward and the team's
hidden weapon.
Jersey #12 Cassandra
Paniagua: With her height and
her enthusiasm she gave every-
thing she had. She is a joy to
have on the team with her smile
and her good attitude.
Jersey #13 Maryly Rico:
What a fighter! She has come a
long way and has become an
indispensable, strong mid-field-
er. With her calm and quiet per-
sonality she is also a joy to have
on our team.
Parents and players wanted
to thank coaches Jairo and Irma
Sanchez and Team Manager
Arnold Moore for all the hard
work and encouragement
through the past few months.
And a very special thank you to
the outstanding and very special
12 little girls from Clewiston
who brought home a state
championship and will live for-
ever in this small city's hearts
and minds.
Editor's note: Congratula-
tions to the Clewiston gals. You
have made all of us very proud!

Tiger grapplers are wrestling well
-A


SUWANEE This weekend
at the Suwannee Invitational the
Tigers faced off against some of
the best wrestlers, from not only
Florida, but also from Georgia,
Tennessee, Alabama, and
Texas.
Both of the top two teams in
Florida 1A attended, which are
Suwannee and Clay, but the
tournament also saw Bradley
Central, from Tennessee, return
as a three-time state champion.
Also wrestling was a third-
ranked team from Texas,
Copell, and lastly Valdosta High
School from Georgia, which
boasts several state champs.
"This is by far a tougher tour-
nament than the state tourna-
ment and is a good chance to
see where we are at. If we can
place here we can place at
state," said Tiger head coach
Jess Alford.
Clewiston ended the tourna-
ment with two fourth place fin-
ishers in Byron Holmes
wrestling at 112 pounds and Kris
Smith who takes the mat at 140.

match decisively with a 15-3 wrestler in a close match in the
decision. second round. In the consola-


tion rounds, Byron had his most
credentialed wrestler of a trans-
fer in from Clay who won sever-
al matches at state last year and
was seeded third at this tourna-
ment. Byron won 8-3 to move
on to the consolation finals
where he lost to the same Lin-
coln wrestler, which he had lost
to earlier that day.
Kris Smith had a weekend
full of serious matches. Win-
ning in the first round against
Lincoln and moving on to the
semi finals against a two-time
placer from Clay. Kris wrestled a
great match and ended the third
period with the Clay wrestler on
his back, but still lost a thriller
by a final score of 11-13.
Kris battled back through the
consolation rounds defeating a
University Christian wrestler 7-
6. In the consolation finals Kris
also faced a wrestler that he had
previously won against from
Lincoln. This match was much
closer with Smith on top at the
end by one point, 6-5.
Several other Tiger competi-
tors put out solid efforts within
a very tough tournament and
walked away with a positive
showing for Clewiston's young


mat squad. They include:
112-byron holmes 2-2
119-jared bacollao 1-2
125-Brandon Caulkins 1-2
135-Joey Cordova 0-1
140-Kris Smith 2-2
160-Alton Edmond 1-2


189-Jamar Boykin 0-2
"We got what we came for,
competition and the best in the
state. This is a reality check for
some of us and a realization of
talent for others," said coach
Alford.


Ichi the deer is environmental mascot


The South Florida Water
Management District named
Ichi the Deer as official mascot
of Environmental Education
and Wildlife Conservation
Awareness at the Jan, 11, 2006
Governing Board meeting in
West Palm Beach.
"As a board member, and
also as a parent., I believe that it
*is imperative that we make a
special effort to promote
awareness, appreciation,
knowledge and stewardship of
our natural resources, especial-
ly with our youngest residents,"
said Governing Board Vice-
Chair Irela Bagua. "Ichi the
deer is a delightful character
that children of all ages can
relate to and learn from."
Ichi's story is told in a book.
about the rescue and adven-
tures of this lone baby deer
from the Big Cypress Swamp.
Ichi \as raised and cared for
until old enough to be released
back into the wild. The book
teaches that -all of nature's
t'reaturies' are'speci'I altd 'per-
.sonify the importance of life
"EE-Chee" is the Seminole
word for deer. The spelling in
Japanese "Ichi" means number
one. So Ichi became the num-
ber one baby deer.

ance request, and recommended
that the city commission deny the
request as well.
As a result of the P&Z Board's
denial, Rawls Real Estate Represen-
tative Cheryl Eby offered a propos-
al, on behalf of lot owners Thomas
and Diane Carithers, to build two
houses instead of three.
"When we originally put the
matter forward to the Planning and
Zoning Board, they did deny the
request for the three units," said
Ms. Eby. "Since then, because of all
the opposition we received, as well
as the denial, the owners want to
propose building two homes,
instead of three," she said at Mon-
day's commission meeting.
However, those who had
opposed the original three-home
proposal did not favor the two-
home deal, and emphasized that
the concept of changing lot area
standards for such purposes could
lead to dramatic changes in how
other developers and landowners
handled their properties.
"I think if you start changing it
now you're going to open up a can

special exception applications.
Four variances and two administra-
tive waivers were handled.
According to Ms. Rodriguez,
rezoning requests are the most fre-
quent actions filed, especially in
Hendry's LeHigh area where
recent county commission action
finally rendered many lots build-
able. There will be no industrial
zoning in that area, she said,
because the road is not being built
to commercial specifications.
The county is currently address-
ing the Department of Community
Affairs (DCA) concerns on the
Comprehensive Land Use Plan
amendment filed for the 18,000-
acre West LaBelle area north of the
river mainly the County Road 78
area. At present, this is the county's.
hot spot for impending growth.
The plan calls for a density of one
unit per 2 acres, one unit per one
acre or two units per acre, she said.
It will also change the land use on
both sides of State Road 80 in that
area to commercial. Bonita Bay
and several other large developers
are actively planning developments
for that area. Bonita Bay is also
busy planning a community for the
Paul property annexed by the City
of LaBelle along State Road 29S. A
Development of Regional Impact
(DRI) is being considered for that
property.
It's apparent that 2006 will be a
busy time for Ms. Rodriguez and
her staff.
"The area is busting out," she
said. "It's boom time."
Mrs. Rodriguez was with the
Regional Planning Council in Bar-
tow for 13 years before moving to
Hendry County. She said the coun-
ty needs time to actively plan for the
long range. Currently, it's all "devel-
oper driven," she said, adding that
she's working on getting a sense of
the area so she can have better
input into how the county should
grow. With so many .large land

4,000 acres already destroyed per
the 1900 ft. rule," she said.
According to Ms. Sanchez, no.
new cases of canker have been
found since the October landfall of
Hurricane \Vilma. Southern Gar-
Sdens considers it unlikely that the
winds caused any spread of the dis-
ease, but said that it may be too
early to tell for sure.
"There have been no new finds
of canker in our groves as a result
of Hurricane Wilma, but it is too
early to know whether or not
Wilma spread canker to additional
areas," said Ms. Sanchez.
The growing and harvest opera-
tions have been drastically under-
mined, primarily by the effects of


of worms, and create more prob-
lems down the road," said area res-
ident Eddie Reid. "I'd like to see
everything stay like it is, with one
home on the property, because if
you change it now, somebody else
is going to come along and want
their parcels changed and it's just
going to cause more problems in
the future," he said.
If the city approved a change in
minimum lot sizes, there would be
an influx of other developers wish-
ing to develop on smaller lots in a
city characterized by larger, spa-
cious lots with big yards. The
change in lot sizes would also
prove to cause a lot of potentially
Unfavorable circumstances in the
residential housing areas of the city,
advised Clewiston resident Carl
Berner.
"The first comment I made to
somebody about this variance right
here, he goes, 'Carl, let's start buy-
ing some houses, and if they
change it, we'll start tearing them
down and we'll put two on a lot!'"
said Mr. Berner. "You're going to
chip away and chip away and chip
away you don't see it today, and
you don't see it tomorrow, but six,
eight, to ten years from now, you
are going to create something that
will get away from you," said Mr.


owners particularly farmers -
deciding to sell off their property,
large land developers are currently
priming the development well, but
it's Ms. Rodriguez's goal to jump
ahead of the developers and proj-
ect the county's future needs for
schools and transportation. She
will then take her information to
the county administrator and ulti-
mately to the county commission
.for action.
On the eastern side of the coun-
ty, national companies are showing
an interest in large tracts of land on
State Road 80 and south of Clewis-
ton. A deal for a truck stop, restau-
rant and hotel for Airglades Airport
is also in the works.
The county is in the midst of
planning water and sewer infra-
structure for the West LaBelle area,
as well as throughout the county.
No development can take place
until that infrastructure is in place.
Input is being gathered from all
interested parties county offices,
cities, developers and current resi-
dents.
Planning works
Growth is in the air, you can
almost smell it as you drive from
one end of the county to the other.
The evidence is in the pouring of
concrete and the banging of ham-
mers as new homes and business-
es seem to rise from the ground
overnight. .' .
Director of Building, Licensing
and Code Enforcement Ken Ben-
nett and his department take a
more hands-on approach to.
growth than the planning depart-
ment. Building, Licensing and
Code Enforcement has a staff of 18:
five inspectors, six code enforce-
ment officers and seven office staff.
The numbers are even more
startling than .the construction that
seems to be:going up on every cor-
ner.
Topping the list is new residen-
tial'units with 317 permits issued
for unincorporated Hendry County.
The total value of the homes is
:$45,855,977 and the county-


Hurricane Wilma. The earliest esti-
males of storm damage were that
as much as 50 percent of oranges
were predicted to be lost, and
those original estimates of loss to
the Southern Gardens groves
appear to be accurate to date on
the early varieties, according to
USSC.
"The early varieties continue to
be below average in size," said Ms.
Sanchez. "Growers are hopeful
that additional growing time on the
late season varieties will allow the
fruit to improve in size," she said..

operations were in full swing, but

Pastor John Hicks lives on the prop-
erty located directly adjacent to the
vacant property, and brought up
the issue of conformity with the rest
of the block that the vacant lot is a
part of.
"In that one block, all of those
lots that the houses are on are larg-
er," said Pastor Hicks. "I agree that
because there are some smaller
lots to the south, that it's important
to consider affordable housing, but
you also have to look at the integrity
of the neighborhood," he said.
A petition was signed by 15
neighbors in opposition to the vari-
ance, and the denial by the P&Z
Board was an additional blow
towards the variance request as the
city commission weighed the
issues on Monday night's meeting.
"I know that housing- is very
necessary to the city, and especially
affordable housing,. but I cannot
take lightly the comments that are
made by the neighborhood,
because there's so many neighbors
that are voicing their concerns,"
said Mayor Mali Chamness.
"Although I do want to see new
homes, solid homes that are being
built here in Clewiston because
this is an old, established neighbor-


received $426,686.08 in fees. Along.
with other permits (including reno-
vations, demolitions, electrical,
plumbing, pool installations, struc-
tural inspections, fences, etc.) the
county issued a total of 2,044 build-
ing permits last year for structures
valued at $76,400,319.56 and real-
ized $763,628.14 in fees.
Some 183 mobile homes, val-
ued at $9,571,392.80, were permit-
ted. The county received
$125,406.65 in fees.
In the new commercial catego-
ry: 21 new permits, valued at
$6,961,178.00. The county received
$45,461.41 in fees.
By contrast, during calendar
year 2004, a total of 1,192 building
permits (all categories) were
issued by the county, with a valua-
tion of $30,179,463.70; the county
received $268,364.22 in fees. That
means 852 more permits (total of
all categories) were issued in 2005
than 2004; in that year valuation
increased by $46,220,855.86 and
the county's fees increased by
$495,263.92. There were 199
mobile home permits in 2004; 79
new residential; and 14 new com-
mercial.
For the period from October
2000 through September 2001, 216
mobile homes and two site built
homes were permitted in unincor-
porated Hendry County; for Octo-
ber 2001-September 2002, there
were 169 mobile homes and 7 site
built homes; and, October 2002-
September 2003, there were 197
mobile homes and eight site built:
homes.
The following year began a sig-
nificant trend to site built homes as
opposed to mobile home set ups.
From October 2003- September
2004, there were 186 mobile
homes and 45 site built homes;
October 2004- September 2005, it
was 123 mobile homes and 46 site
built homes.
(The numbers for 2000- 2005
reflect actual construction. The
numbers for calendar year 2005 are
for permit applications.)

from 162 million boxes to 15 mil-
lion boxes, primarily on the late
season' fruit. Southern Gardens
feels that this estimate is still over-
stated, and that this year's crop will
be comparable to last year's crop at
approximately 150-million boxes.
According to Ms. Sanchez, the

hood, I would like to see the integri-
ty of the neighborhood kept," said
the mayor.
With the high expectations of
new development in the city limits,
Commissioner Rick Miller said he
was in favor of any new develop-
ment, in both residential and com-
mercial sectors. However, just as
Mayor Chamness said, the com-
ments made at Monday's meeting
were too essential for him to
ignore.
"I grew up on that street, two
houses down from this particular
property, and it's always kind of
bothered me that that lot sat there
empty for all those years," said
Commissioner Miller. "I'm not
going to go against the neighbor-
hood, and the people that have
been established there but at the
same time, that lot has sat empty
for a very long time, and it's going
to continue to be a code enforce-
ment issue as far as being mowed
and kept up for the future," he con-
tinued. "I think it's something that
should be considered by the com-
mission in a few years, a little bit
later on," he said.
Commissioner Julio Rodriguez
stressed the importance of afford-
able housing, and also argued that
the commission had a very estab-


zoning will be slowing dowfi any
time soon. Five home permit appli-
cations were already submitted
during the first week of 2006; per-
mits, including impact fees, aver-
age at $7,600 per house. Mr. Ben-
nett is expecting to collect $2-3
million in impact fees for 2006.
Over the past few months many
people were also rushing to beat
the new impact fees..Some 300
house permits were submitted
before impact fees went into effect.
Mr. Bennett also oversees licens-
ing. In 2004, the Board of County
Commissioners tightened restric-
tions on licensing of contractors
and other construction specialists,
such as carpenters, plumbers, etc.

City of Clewiston
The Clewiston Building Depart-
ment is busier than ever. Building
applications, which used to averag-
ing about 60 per month, are now
exceeding 200 per month.
City permitting figures are avail-
able from Sept. 31, 2004 through
Oct. 1,2005, and include many cat-
egories, as does the county. The city
processed a total of 844 permit
applications during that time. New
residential construction permits
over that time period numbered
108 in the city; just one mobile
home; 25 commercial; and 360
reroofs due to storm damage..
Through Jan. 19, the building
department had processed a total
of 474 building permits: 22 new
residential; 67 mobile homes (all
FEMA); and 3 commercial.
There were also 239 reroofing
permits.
City of LaBelle
For 2005, the City of LaBelle per-
mitted 17 new single family homes,
four mobile homes and 8 commer-
cial buildings. In 2004, those figures
were 13 residential, no mobile
homes and 10 commercial build-
ings. Thus far in 2006, three single
family residential and one mobile
home have been permitted within
the city limits.

lished voting record on very similar
issues in the past.
"We've approved three vari-
ances of the same sort in the last
year, putting two homes on a simi-
lar lot," said Commissioner
Rodriguez. "To stay consistent, you
know, we did it in those situations,
so we have to be fair in this situa-
tion," he said.
Mayor Chamness acknowl-
edged that very similar variances
had been passed by the commis-
sion in quite similar cases, but
without the significant public
response that the Crescent Drive
lot initiated.
"I think it would be an
improvement to the neighbor-
hood," said Commissioner
Jimmy Pittman. "With our new
landscaping codes, we could
make it look however we wanted
to. I think it would be a hundred
times better than what's there


now, if you put two houses I'm
definitely against three. These
lots divided into two would actu-
ally probably be bigger than
what's being built on now," said
Commissioner Pittman.
"1 don't think those houses, if
they were built, would devalue
your homes, I think they would
bring your prices up," he contin-
ued. "If you built those two hous-
es, they would probably be in the
$250,000 range, probably high-
er," he said. "But, having said
that, the commission is here to
hear the voice of the public, and I
am in favor of the integrity of the
neighborhood," he said.
A motion by Commissioner
Matthew Beatty, seconded by
Mayor Chamness, to deny the
variance request for the develop-
ment of two houses was passed
by a 4-1 vote with a dissent by
Commissioner Rodriguez.

Alico, Inc. reports first quarter earnings


LABELLE Alico, Inc., (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO) one of the south's
best known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, announced net
earnings for the first quarter of fis-
cal year 2006 of $1.2 million, or
$0.16 per share, compared with
net earnings of $1.0 million, or
$0.13 per share, during the first
quarter of fiscal year 2005.
Operating revenues during the
first quarter of fiscal year 2006
totaled $6.7 million, compared
with $7.6 million for the first quar-
ter of fiscal year 2005. The
decrease in operating revenues
was primarily due to decreased
revenues from the sale of rock and
sand products.
John R. Alexander, chairman
andcChief executive officer, noted,
"Hurricane Wilma, a category
three hurricane, swept through
southwest Florida on Oct. 24,
2005, causing extensive damage to
the company's crops and infra-
structure in Collier and Hendry
Counties. The company recorded


a casualty loss of $5.7 million of
damages to crop inventories and
infrastructure from the hurricane.
However, increased income from
bulk real estate sales ($4.4 million
compared with $0.0 million for the
three months ended Nov. 30, 2005
and Nov. 30, 2004, respectively)
and interest and investment
income ($5.0 million for the three
months ended Nov. 30, 2005 com-
pared with $1.3 million for the
three months ended Nov. 30,
2004) offset the casualty loss and
loss from operations ($1.0 million
loss compared with $1.1 million
income for the three months
ended Nov. 30, 2005 and 2004,
respectively)."
Addressing the divisional
results, Mr. Alexander noted that:
The Citrus Division reported
operating profits of $0.6 million
during the first quarter of fiscal
2006, compared with $0.8 million
for the first quarter of fiscal year
2005. Hurricanes, citrus canker
finds and increased real estate
development in the central and


southern portions of Florida where
the majority of citrus is produced
within the state have combined to
reduce the supply of citrus for the
past two years, resulting in price
increases for citrus products
across the industry. However, crop
losses in the current fiscal year due
to hurricane Wilma are expected
to continue to offset the increased
prices for citrus products.
Sugarcane and sod generated
a loss of $0.6 million for the three
months ended Nov. 30, 2005 com-
pared with earnings of $0.4 million
for the three months ended Nov.
30, 2004. Fertilizer is the largest
component of production costs
for the Company's sugarcane
crop. Due to price increases in the
cost of fuel used to produce fertiliz-
er, fertilizer prices increased 23
percent over their prior year levels.
The increased price of fertilizer
caused the Company's production
costs per ton to rise above the
expected net realizable value. As a
result, the Company, adjusted its
inventoried sugarcane crop by


$834 thousand in the first quarter
of fiscal 2005, charging it to cost of
sales. This adjustment, caused by
the price increase in fertilizer
described above, was the primary
cause of the loss.
Ranch earnings increased
during the three months ended
Nov. 30, 2005 when compared to
the same period a year ago ($0.5
million compared to $0.2 million
for the quarters ended Nov. 30,
2005 and 2004, respectively).
Prices for Alico's beef products
have improved during the current
year compared to the prior year
($0.82 per pound average for the
first quarter months of fiscal year
2006, compared to $0.76 per
pound for the first quarter of fiscal
2005). The price increase is the pri-
mary cause for the increased prof-
its in the current year.
Management expects contin-
ued profitability from the compa-
ny's agricultural operations in fis-
cal year 2006, but at reduced levels
from fiscal year 2005 due to the
hurricane.

UF researchers say citrus greening can be managed


GAINESVILLE Canker
topped the list of worries for the
Florida citrus industry until citrus
greening described as the
world's most serious citrus dis-
ease was found in groves last
year.
"In the long term, the industry
can live with and manage the
canker problem, but citrus
greening is a fatal disease that's
an even larger threat to the
state's signature crop," said
Harold Browning, director of the
University of Florida's Citrus
Research and Education Center
in Lake Alfred. "In other areas of
the world where greening is a
problem, it has never been suc-
cessfully eradicated."
The disease, which slowly
weakens and kills all types of cit-
rus trees, causes fruit to become
lopsided and taste bitter, making
it unusable. Fruit does not devel-
op the desired color, hence the
greening name. There is no
known cure for the disease,
which is on the U.S. Department
of Agriculture's select list of
threats to plants and wildlife reg-
ulated by the Agricultural Bioter-
rorism Protection Act. Greening
does not harm people
Browning said the fatal bacte-
rial disease is transmitted by the
Asian citrus psyllid (Diaphorina
citri), a tiny insect that is now
widely distributed throughout
Florida,'and the disease has been
found in'more than 440 different
locations in 11 counties. He said
it's not practical to eradicate cit-
rus greening, but the spread of
the disease can be slowed with
an effective integrated pest man-
agement program (IPM) that
includes limited use of systemic
insecticides and beneficial
insects that attack the psyllid.
The introduction of a benefi-
cial wasp was the first step in an
expanded research program by
UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences to develop a
wide range of best management
practices to prevent greening
from destroying the state's $9.1
billion citrus industry, Browning
said. UF researchers are also
developing management pro-
grams to combat canker.
Marjorie Hoy, a UF professor
of entomology and biological


control expert, said the psyllid
was first detected in two South
Florida counties in June 1998. At
the time, the psyllid was consid-
ered to be a significant pest, and
although it did not appear to
carry the deadly bacterial disease
that causes citrus greening, it
made establishment of greening
more likely if the disease were
introduced. Damage caused by
the psyllid included stunting of
new growth and sooty mold for-
mation on the honeydew pro-
duced by the psyllids.
"When citrus greening started
showing up in citrus trees across
the state in September 2005, we
knew that that we had a potential
disaster on our hands, and that
the psyllid was carrying and
transmitting the deadly disease,"
she said. In an attempt to reduce
populations of the Asian citrus
psyllid, Hoy and Ru Nguyen, an
entomologist with the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, imported
two natural enemies of the psyl-
lid from Taiwan and Thailand.
After evaluating the parasitic
wasps under quarantine condi-
tions to make sure they would be
effective against the psyllid and
not harm the environment, they
began releasing the biological
controls about six years ago.
"One of the beneficial wasps
(Tamarixia radiata) is now wide-
ly established throughout Flori-
da, feeding on the psyllids and
reducing their population by as
much as 80 percent in some
locations between August and
November," Hoy said. "We're
also relying on naturally occur-
ring predacious insects such lady
beetles, lacewings and spiders
that consume more than 90 per-
cent of psyllid eggs and
nymphs."
Unfortunately, even one psyl-
lid can transmit the deadly green-
ing disease, so biological control
cannot be the only tool in man-
aging greening. Any control will
require 'a holistic approach, Hoy
said.
"Management tools that are
developed should be compatible
with these and other natural ene-
mies that suppress citrus pests
such as mites, whiteflies, scale
insects, leafminers and mealy-


bugs," Hoy said. "Indiscriminate
killing of their natural enemies
could produce serious pest out-
breaks."
What complicates control of
citrus greening is the fact that
symptoms begin to show up in
trees several years after the trees
are infected by the psyllid insects,
said Ron Brlansky, a professor of
plant pathology at UF's Lake
Alfred center.
"Lack of early detection of the
systemic bacterial disease is a
major problem for the citrus
industry," he said. "Once the
symptoms show up, it's tod late
to save the tree."
Brlansky said early symptoms
such as leaf mottling and yellow
discoloration may be mistaken
for other problems such as nutri-
tional deficiencies, and laborato-
ry tests are needed to determine
if greening is the problem. The
disease can also be identified by
cutting open small and poorly
colored fruit and looking for
aborted seeds.
He said the UF research pro-
gram will attack the citrus green-
ing problem in three ways by
developing best management
practices for the bacterial dis-
ease, improving diagnostic meth-
ods and testing the effectiveness
of systemic insecticides to stop
transmission of the disease by the
psyllids.
Brlansky is working with
Michael Rogers, an assistant pro-
fessor of entomology at the Lake
Alfred center, and Vern
Damsteegt, an entomologist at
USDA's Foreign Disease and
Weed Science Research Unit in
Fort Detrick, Md., to evaluate the
ability of systemic insecticides to
reduce transmission of the dis-
ease by psyllids. The Maryland
quarantine facility was selected
because it is far from commercial
citrus in Florida.
SUnlike broad-spectrum insec-
ticides that are applied to the
foliage of citrus trees, soil-applied
systemic insecticides may not dis-
rupt the effectiveness of other
beneficial insects that control cit-
rus pests in existing biological
control programs, Rogers said.
"Recent results in our field tri-
als have demonstrated that soil-
applied systemic insecticides


such as Aldicarb can reduce psyl-
lid populations on mature citrus
trees and provide a significantly
longer period of control than
foliar applications," he said.
"These research projects will
allow us to manage psyllids with
fewer pesticide applications than
growers use in other regions of
the world where greening is a
problem."
Rogers said they are looking at
the ability of psyllids to transmit
the bacterium between diseased
and healthy plants that have been
treated with systemic insecti-
cides. "We know the psyllids are
killed when they feed on trees
treated with systemic insecti-
cides, but we do not know if
acquisition and transmission of
the disease will occur," he said.
The effectiveness of the bene-
ficial wasp in controlling the
Asian citrus psyllid is being evalu-
ated by Rogers in cooperation
with Phil Stansly, a professor of
entomology at UF's Southwest
Florida Research and Education
Center in Immokalee, and David
Hall, an entomologist at USDA's
Horticultural Research Laborato-
ry in Fort Pierce.
With the help of participating
growers, the study will identify
citrus production areas where the
beneficial wasp is established
and determine when it is provid-
ing effective biological control of
the psyllid and when broad-spec-
trum foliar insecticide sprays
should not be used. The wasp
will be released in groves where
the biological control is not yet
established.
"Until we can develop citrus
cultivars that are resistant to
greening, the disease will have to
be actively managed," Brlansky
said. "These management strate-
gies include the use of certified
disease-free nursery trees, fre-
quent inspections for the disease
and removal of infected trees that
serve as a source for new infec-
tions."
He said the management pro-
gram also includes educating
growers about identifying symp-
toms that are difficult to diagnose
because they often occur in con-
junction with mineral deficiency
symptoms.
To improve diagnostic meth-


ods, Brlansky is working with
Michael Davis, a professor of
plant pathology at UF's Tropical
Research and Education Center
in Homestead, and John Har-
tung, a plant pathologist at
USDA's Fruit Laboratory in
Beltsville, Maryland.
"If we can culture the citrus
greening bacterium in the labora-

tory, then we.would have another
valuable tool for diagnosing the
disease," Brlansky said. "Having
the bacterium in a culture would
enable other diagnostics such as
antibodies for serological detec-
tion to be developed. We are also
looking at the presence of the
bacterium in non-symptomatic
tissues."

Florida employment rate dropped for December 2005


Florida's unemployment rate
once again hit'a record low 'in
December 2005 dropping to 3.3
percent. The number of unem-
ployed Floridians is down nearly
26 percent from a year ago.
Strong job growth continues
as the state added 248,100 jobs
over the year in December,
growing at 3.3 percent, more
than twice the national rate. The
national rate of growth was 1.5
percent for the same period.
Based on the latest available
data, Florida leads the nation in
the number of new jobs created
and has the fastest .rate of job
growth among the ten most pop-
ulous states.
The state's seasonally adjust-
ed December 2005 unemploy-


ment rate was 3.3 percent, down
from the revised rate of 3.6 per-
cent in November and down by
1.3 percentage points from 4.6
(percent a year ago.
Florida's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for Decem-
ber 2005 of 3.3 percent was 1.6
percentage points lower than
the national rate of 4.9 percent.
Florida continues to see the
rate of job growth exceed other
comparable states. Based on
data from November 2005, the
latest month for which compara-
ble data are available from other
states, Florida led all states in the
number of new jobs created and
had the fastest rate of annual job
growth among the 10 most pop-
Sulous states.


Solid growth continued in
manufacturing which gained
5,100 jobs (+1.3 percent) over
the year. Durable goods manu-
facturing gained 4,300 jobs,
mainly in transportation equip-
ment manufacturing (+3,400
jobs, +8.1 percent). Durable
Goods employment, which
makes up about two-thirds of
the manufacturing industry, has
seen positive growth since April
2004.
The Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-
Miami Beach MSA led the state in
employment growth (+55,500
jobs, +2.4 percent), followed by
the Orlando and Tampa-St.
Petersburg-Clearwater MSAs
with over-the-year job growth in
December 2005 of +42,100 jobs

Crist endorsed by


Florida Nurses Assoc.


TALLAHASSEE Charlie
Crist, attorney general and
candidate for governor,
announced that the Florida
Nurses Association, the largest
statewide organization of reg-
istered nurses representing
more than 11,000 nurses
across Florida, endorsed his
candidacy to become Flori-
da's next governor. The
announcement was made at a
news conference at the Flori-
da Nurses Association, where
a number of nurses gathered
with Crist.
"Nurses are critical in deliv-
ering essential services and
caring for those in need, "said
Crist. "I am pleased that Flori-
da's nurses are endorsing my
campaign to become Florida's
next governor. No group of
professionals knows more
about the healthcare chal-
lenges facing our citizens than
Florida's nurses."


The National Center for
Healthcare Workforce Analy-
sis projects that by 2020, Flori-
da will need 61,000 more
nurses than' are currently pro-
jected to be available. Crist
met with a group of nurses to
discuss the critical shortage
facing the nursing field and
learn more about the chal-
lenges they face on a daily
basis.
"The Florida Nurses Asso-
ciation endorses Charlie Crist
for 'governor because he
understands nurses and our
passionate commitment to
health care and the important
role we play inN126at increas-
ing the number of nurses and
allied health professionals in
the state will help promote a
healthy future for all Floridi-
ans. The Florida Nurses Asso-
ciation will do everything we
can to elect Charlie Crist the
next governor of Florida."


Citizen soldier grant funds available


TALLAHASSEE Susan
Pareigis, director of the Florida
Agency for Workforce Innovation,
emphasized continued availability
of the Citizen Soldier Program that
allows private employers to apply
for grants to help them supplement
pay for their employees who are
called to active duty.
Federal law requires that
employers retain the same or simi-
lar jobs, pay and benefits waiting
for employees who are away on
military duty. The Citizen Soldier
Program provides matching grants
to Florida employers who pay
wages to employees while they are
serving in the United States Armed
Forces Reserves or the Florida
National Guard on federal active
duty.
The Citizen Soldier Program
reimburses private employers up to
one-half of the difference between
the amount of monthly wages paid
before the employee was called to
federal active duty and the amount
of the employee's active duty com-
pensation.
"Florida's citizen soldiers and
their families live and work in a
condition of constant readiness to


serve the state and our nation,"
said Susan Pareigis, Director of the
Agency for Workforce Innovation.
"It is important that we recognize
their contributions and sacrifices
and offer assistance to those
employers across the state who
value and support their sacrifices."
The program is available on a
first-come, first-served basis. Flori-
da employers are encouraged to
learn more about the Citizen Sol-
dier Program by calling (800) 342-

Check out tax credits


TALLAHASSEE Florida's
Agency for Workforce Innovation
and Workforce Florida, Inc. in
partnership with .the Human
Resources (HR) Florida State
Council, has urged Florida
employers to help their employ-
ees take advantage of the Federal
Earned Income Tax Credit
(EITC). The EITC is a refundable
federal income tax credit for low
to moderate income working
individuals and families. Taxpay-
ers who qualify and claim the
credit can pay less federal tax,
pay no tax or even get a tax
refund of up to $4,400.
Based on information from
the IRS it is projected that as
much as $635 million goes
unclaimed by the estimated
350,000+ working families/indi-
viduals in Florida who are not tak-
ing advantage of the EITC. Local
workforce and HR professionals,
in partnership with other key
community organizations around
the state will work together to
help working Floridians apply for
available tax credits. Employers
can learn how the EITC can help
their employees boost their
wages at no additional cost to the
business. With the tax refund, an
individual with a $7 hourly wage
can realize the equivalenti of
about $9 an hour. The impact
goes beyond the individual and
their family as local communities
benefit from additional consumer
activity.
"The Earned Income Tax
Credit not only increases net pay
to qualified Florida workers, it
also positively impacts the com-
munities where they spend their
extra take-home pay," said Susan
Pareigis, Director of the Agency
for Workforce Innovation. "We
want to assist businesses in help-
ing their employees to learn more
about and benefit from the
EITC."
Congress originally approved
the tax credit legislation in 1975.
The maximum benefit at that
time was $400 per year and'has
grown to $4,400 for tax year 2005.
Income and family size deter-
mine the amount of the EITC.
Allowable earnings cap also
varies with family size, but can be
as high as $37 K. When the EITC
exceeds the amount of taxes
owed, it results in a tax refund to
those who claim and qualify for


"The Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child
Tax Credit provide a substantial incentive for
low to moderate income families to participate
in the workforce. At the same time it gives
these families the dignity of work and self-suf-
ficiency."
Curtis Austin, President of Workforce Florida


the credit.
To qualify, 'taxpayers must
meet certain requirements and
file a tax return. According to the
Center on Budget and Policy Pri-
orities 1.4 million Florida workers
received the EITC in 2003 (the
most recent year with complete
data) bringing into the state econ-
omy an additional $2.7 billion.
Many working families will quali-
fy for both the EITC and the Child
Tax Credit (CTC). The EITC will
be larger, but the CTC can also
provide a significant income
boost.
"This is a program that literally
makes work pay," said Curtis
Austin, President of Workforce
Florida. "The Earned Income Tax
Credit and the Child Tax Credit
provide a substantial incentive for
low to moderate income families
to participate in the workforce. At
the same time it gives these fami-
lies the dignity of work and self-
sufficiency."
In addition to an end-of-year
lump sum refund, most individu-
als who qualify for the EITC can
also get a weekly/periodic pay
supplement at no.cost to their
employers by filing a W-5 "EIC
Advance Payment Certificate"
With HR/payroll, thereby increas-
ing net pay and usually job reten-
tion/satisfaction.
"Imagine the impact on your
'employees' morale and loyalty
when you help them increase
their net income," said Sherell
Hendrickson, PHR, President of
HR Florida State Council, Inc.,
"It's a win-win situation all the
way around for the individual,
the employer and the community
who benefits from.additional dol-
lars circulating in the economy."
Some Florida employers pro-
vide a W-5 to all their new hires
enabling those who qualify to
take home a bigger paycheck
right from the start of their
i ,


employment. Other employers
go one step further and, during
tax season, bring in tax prepara-
tion volunteers during the work-
day, at lunchtime, during shift
changes, or after work to help
their employees fill out their
taxes.

employees take advantage of it,-

Florida Beef Cattle

Short Course May3-5


GAINESVILLE The 55th
Annual Florida Beef Cattle Short
Course at the University of Florida
will be held on May 3-5, 2006, at
the Hilton University of Florida
Conference Center in Gainesville,
Florida. Beef cattle production in
Florida is a dynamic and chal-
lenging industry. Every producer
faces challenges regarding eco-
nomics and marketing, resource
utilization, and management
decisions. These challenges are
on-going processes that necessi-
tate current information for deci-
sion making. The 55th Annual
Florida Beef Cattle Short Course
addresses these challenges that
the beef cattle producers face on
an everyday basis.
*On Wednesday, the after-
noon program will begin at 1
p.m. with the focus on marketing
and land resource utilization
challenges. As the cattle cycle
evolves, knowing where we are
and where the market may be
headed is always pertinent. In
addition, this session will focus
on a timely and important topic
for the sustainability of the beef
cattle industry. The beef cattle
enterprise's land resources and
the continuing issue of land use
Sand value in Florida will be
approached on a number of dif-
ferent fronts. The day will con-
dude with a reception and Allied
Industry Trade Show, a great
chance for cattlemen and allied
industry representatives to inter-
act and share information;
*On Thursday the course will
addresses some of the manage-
ment issues of beef cattle produc-
tion. Nutrition, cow herd man-
agement, beef products, and beef
product; procurement systems
will all be addressed. These basic
issues of beef production will be
approached with improved pro-


duction efficiency in mind. Lunch
will be generously sponsored by
Farm Credit of North Florida. The
afternoon program moves out-
side to utilize the UF/IFAS, Beef
Teaching Unit to demonstrate calf
processing, cattle evaluation, and
hay production techniques.
Thursday evening is capped by
the annual Cattlemen's Steak-
Out, an opportunity to enjoy a
prime rib dinner and time for
conversation.
*Friday morning the program
highlights the University of Flori-
da's ongoing dedication to beef
cattle production. Two concur-
rent sessions will showcase some
of the current research efforts in
the Animal Sciences and Agrono-
my departments that relate
directly to the Florida beef cattle
producer. Alternatively, that
morning will be an opportunity
for interested producers to attend
a Florida Beef Quality Producer
training session. Securing the
ability and the resources to main-
tain the beef industry in Florida
will continue to be a challenge.
Utilizing new and innovative pro-
duction practices to profitably
produce quality beef cattle and
beef products will. be an impor-
tant key to maintaining the
opportunity we have to enjoy a
profession and lifestyle in the
beef industry.
Registration cost is $90 per
participant before April 21, and
includes a copy of the Beef Cattle
Short Course proceedings, trade
show, refreshments, and Steak-
Out ticket. Complete informa-
tion, schedules, and registration
can be found online at
http://www.animal.ufl.edu/exten
sion/beef/bcsclndex.shtml, or
contact the University of Florida,
Department of Animal Sciences
at (352)392-1916.


News Briefs


Crist to post financial
information
TALLAHASSEE Charlie Crist,
attorney general and candidate for
governor, released his tax returns for
the past five years, from the time he
served as Commissioner of Educa-
tion to the present. Crist posted the
tax returns on his campaign Web
site, www.CharlieCrist.com/trans-
parency.asp
http://e2ma.net/go/185674113/1541
28/4301968/goto:http://www.Char-
lieCrist.com/transparency.asp.
"I am happy to post these forms
on myWeb site in response to a call
for all candidates for governor to do
so," said Crist. "The public has a
right to know about the financial
dealings of the candidates seeking
Florida's highest office."
While serving in public office,

for public review his tax returns and
financial disclosure forms as
required by the Florida law.

FEMA help deadline
extended to Jan. 31
ORLANDO The deadline for
Florida residents affected by Hurri-
cane Wilma to apply for
federal/state disaster assistance has
been extended to Tlesday, Jan. 31,
say officials from the Department of
Homeland Security's Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) and Florida's State Emer-
gency Response Team (SERT).
The first step in applying for aid
is to register with FEMA. There are
two ways to register: Log on to
www.fema.gov
http://www.fema.gov/, or call 1-
800-621-FEMA (3362) orTIY 1-800-
462-7585 for those with speech or


hearing impairments. Both lines
are available 24/7. Residents are
urged to register for assistance only
once. Registering multiple times
may cause delays in the assistance
process.
Those who suffered losses from
the hurricane have variety of assis-
tance programs available to them
as they seek to recover in the
storm's aftermath. Individual assis-
tance can include grants to help
pay for temporary housing, home
repairs and other disaster-related
expenses not covered by insurance
or other aid programs. Low-interest
disaster loans from the U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA) are
also available to cover losses sus-
tained by renters, homeowners
and businesses.
To be considered for such aid,
individuals must have sustained
losses or damage from Hurricane
Wilma and reside in a county that
has been designated eligible for
individual assistance programs.
The following counties have been
designated: Brevard, Broward, Col-
lier, Glades, Hendry, Indian River,
Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe,
Okeechobee, Palm Beach, and St.
Lucie.

extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you

NEW YEAR'S PARTY w/ all your
friends can be in this 3/2 DWMH on
a quiet street in Country Side
Meadows, Moore Haven. Decorator
perfect all it needs is a moving van.
Start celebrating because the price is
only $119,900.00
MOO! There's room for a contented
cow, pigs, goats, and horses on this
1.25 acres in Montura Ranch Estates.
3/2 DWMH is included. It's not a
showplace but a place for living.
Available for only $105,000.00
Lots of Lots I have various lots avail-
able in MRE. Some are partially
cleared, some are wooded. Prices
start at $40K
Definitely Not Nice, In fact it's a 2
Bd disaster! Fix It Up and it may just
be livable. Anyway, you can buy this
doublewide mobile home in
Seminole Manor for not much more
than the lot value at $39.91<

Do you hate the chaos that your mornings bring?


Do you hate your mornings?
Do you wake up in a bad mood?
Do you feel like you got up on the
wrong side. of the bed? Your
mornings do not have to be like
this. All it takes is a little thought
to change the CHAOS you have
been living in.
That little thought is as simple
as knowing what clothes you are
wearing when you get up. If you
will think about your morning
before you actually have to face
it; your mornings will run
smoother. It all starts with a little
before bed routine.
Half the battle with your
morning has to do with you not
being prepared to start your day.
You run around in a tizzy trying to
do all those last minute things
you procrastinated about the
night before. Here is what hap-
pens when we put something off.
Let's start with our before bed
routines.
1. We go to bed at 1 or 2 a.m.


and have to get up at 7 a.m. We
procrastinated' by not going to
bed at a decent hour. Then we
can't get up on time
: 2. After you hit the snooze but-
ton a few times and it is 7:30 a.m.
and to get to work on time we
have to leave at 7:45 a.m. Now
you have 15 minutes to get
dressed and out the door and you
have no clean clothes.
3. Not only did you go to bed
late, but you did not lay out your
clothes for tomorrow. So there
again you have procrastinated


and you are rushing around.
4. Now you are feeling the
time crunch and the pressure of
being late to work or an appoint-
ment again. Then the guilt starts
to pile on.
5. With the guilt comes blam-
ing others and not looking at
what our role was in our perpetu-
al tardiness. Then we have mar-
tyrdom and the loud yelling voic-
es that just add to the stress along
with the guilt.
6. Now we are half dressed,
jumping in a car trying to put on
makeup while driving and not
paying attention to what we are
doing. Not to mention that you
have skipped breakfast and there
is not even time for a quick drive
through the golden arches. Well
that could be the only positive
thing about rushing; not time for
negative nutrition with fast food.
7. Next thing we know the
blue lights are flashing in our
rearview mirror and we have yet


another speeding ticket to have to
explain and pay for.
8. That is, if we are lucky and
we haven't had a car accident
with our babies in the car.
9. More money wasted all
because we procrastinated and
didn't go to bed in a decent hour
to get up and start our day on the
right foot instead of behind the
eight ball.
Just writing this makes me
nauseated. I could not live this
way anymore. The constant
surge of adrenalin is hard on our
bodies. We have to find a way to
relieve the stress that our procras-
tination causes in our lives. Are
you listening to me! Procrastina-
tion can kill us and maim our
children. It can be a slow painful
death of our bodies turning on us
because of the constant surge of
adrenalin with immune dysfunc-
tion or it can be a quick one with
a car accident. You have a choice
to stop this right now!


If I can ever get you to make
peace with your mornings by
establishing a few simple habits
in your life; you will never go
back to living this way. The calm-
ness of the mornings will start
you out on a firm and steady pace
for your whole day.
Before you go to bed:
1. Gather up the items you will
need for tomorrow and put them
by your front door.
2. Check your calendar for
tomorrow's appointments
3. Lay out your clothes for
tomorrow
4. Brush and floss your teeth
and wash your face.
5. Go to bed at a decent hour,
this way you will feel like getting
up!
When you get up in the morn-
ing:
1. Get dressed as soon as your
feet hit the floor
2. Swish and Swipe the bath-
room while you are getting


dressed.
3. Eat Breakfast, drink water
and. take your supplements and
medications
4. Gather up the items to take
with you.
5. Do not wait till the last
moment to leave your home. It is
OK to be early.
These simple habits will
change your life. The main thing
you have to do is go to bed at a
decent hour so you will have the
energy to get started on your day.
You can do this.
Are you ready to FLY though
your day with a simple Before
Bed Routine and Morning routine
starting you off on a calm note?

your CHAOS; check out her web-
site and join her free mentoring
