Scare up support for event


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Ghosts,
witches, and candy: these are
things that are associated with
Halloween. This year, besides
trick-or-treating, children will be
able to enjoy a fall festival.
The Clewiston Recreation
Department and the Chamber
of Commerce have partnered to
create a Kids Fall Festival for the
children of Clewiston. The festi-
val will have many activities for


kids to enjoy while waiting for
Halloween night to arrive.
A pumpkin carving contest
will pit the best of Clewiston's
carvers against each other. The
pumpkin must be carved prior to
the event, which should make
for some elaborate designs.
There is no fee to enter and the
first place winner will receive
$200, with awards being given to
second and third place winners
also.
Another event being planned


Livening up the day: Fashion Show
- -J M6.


for the festival is a trick-or-treat
village. One organization can
line up "houses" made from
boxes and hand out candy to
kids.
Small games will also be set
up for kids to enjoy.
Groups and organizations
within the community are wel-
come to come set up a booth.
The only requirement is that
each organization must have a
game for kids to play.

Tigerettes eager to


represent their city


By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON While par-
ticipating in a marching auxil-
iary camp in July, seven of the
Tigerettes showed enough great
sportsmanship and twirling abil-
ity to receive All-Star ribbons.
The ribbons allow each of the
girls to participate in the half-
time show of the Capital One
Bowl in Orlando.
Four of the girls have accept-
ed the award and are getting
ready to perform at the event.
The girls are Sheri Curry, Tara
Miller, Brittany Autry and Cyn-
thia Rogers.
The game is held in Orlando
on New Year's Day, and the girls
will get to spend 10 days there
enjoying attractions that make
Florida famous. They are sched-
uled to leave Dec. 28 and return
home Jan. 2. During their stay,
the girls will enjoy a pizza party,
and visit Walt Disney World or
Universal Studios.
The cost of the trip for each
girl is approximately $1,000. To
raise the money, the girls have
had several fundraisers, includ-
ing a yard sale, a barbecue din-
ner, and they are regulars at the
concession stand, selling hot


dogs at U-Save.
Each girl plays an active part
at school and in their communi-
ties, the mark of a true Tigerette.
Sheri Curry, a senior at CHS, has
been spinning flag since 7th
grade. Before moving to Clewis-
ton in 2004, she attended Wash-
ington County High School
(WCHS) in Alabama, She was a
member of the WCHS newspa-
per staff and WCHS Marching
and Concert Bands. Ms. Curry
was also awarded the title of
captain of the WCHS Col-
orguard. She spent over 100
hours volunteering in various
places including the Washing-
ton County Nursing Home and
Hospice South. Since moving to
Clewiston, she has been actively
involved in the CHS Marching
and Concert Bands and is the
captain of the CHS Tigerettes.
She is also a member of Health
Occupations Students of Ameri-
ca (HOSA) and the National
Honor Society. Ms. Curry is a
member of Sugar Dolls, a local
auxiliary group, and serves as
the coach of the Sugar Dolls flag
team. She has volunteered for
local organizations including

something to raise money for
their organization, but they must
have a game geared toward the
children," said Angie Kelley,
Recreation Director, and one of
the coordinators of the event.
Ms. Kelley is presently occu-
pied canvassing the community
for support of the festival. If suc-
cessful, the event will truly be
something to admire and chil-
dren will have a reason to skip
the door-to-door trick-or-treating
- especially younger children.


Donations are being accept-
ed: These donations will be used
to buy prizes and other items
needed to make this festival a
joyful event for the children.
The festival is scheduled for
October 28, from 6 to 9 p.m. at
Woodworks Park.
For more information about
the event, or to make a donation,
call Angie Kelley at (863) 983-
1474 or Sean Moore at (863) 983-
7979. The deadline to be a part
of the festival is Oct. 20.

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON At its meet-
ing last week, the City Commis-
sion approved construction of a
5,003 square foot preschool
and daycare facility in Clewis-
ton. Discovery Day Academy is
planned for 180 Basilan Cres-
cent. When finished, it will be
the city's newest school.
After discussion of the final
development order, commis-


sion's approval came with a
few contingencies. For
instance, before construction
begins, -the developer will have
to provide a site plan and make
preparations for all utility con-
nections that will be necessary.
"All of the contingencies are

CLEWISTON -- After
weeks of searching for the

Woodall retires



from pharmacy


By Glenda Wilson
HENDRY COUNTY -Pharma-
cy business at Hendry Regional
Medical Center will continue as
usual, but employees say, "It will
not be the same after Sept. 27 -
not without Sandy Woodall."
After 18 years of service as the
hospital Pharmacy Director, she
has decided to retire.
Hospital employees held a sur-
prise reception on Monday, Sept
25, to honor Sandy Woodall, B.S.,
Pharm.D., who was even further
surprised when her mother
joined the reception. Her friends
and family had made arrange-
ments to have her flown in from
North Carolina.
Although Dr. Woodall has con-
tributed too many accomplish-
ments to list during her years of
dedication to the hospital, she can
be recognized for implementing
remote order entry and video veri-
fication processes to reduce med-
ication errors and the medication
reconciliation program that
retrieves retail patient prescription
information. In addition, Dr.
Woodall's publication about Tele-
pharmacy, which was published


by the Joint Commission, was a
credit to her many achievements.
Sandy said that she would like
to thank the Board of Authority
and Hospital Administration for
their support throughout her
years of employment. She also
credited the pharmacy and nurs-
ing staff for being instrumental in
her successes. One of her last
comments was, "It has been fun;
we've made a difference."

ber meeting for the ARC. Tenta-


tive plans were made to attend

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy, Are
"Greenies "really bad or unsafe for
my dog?
Thankyou, Kenny in Clewiston.
Answer: Hey there Kenny. The
short answer is Yes and No ". The
long answer is ... As long as you
give your dog the correct size gree-
nie you will be fine. First of all let's
mention what greenies are.
Greenies are a wonderful
digestible dog bone which is a
great choice for your dog's dental
care.
There has been some recent
media controversy on greenies
safety. There have been recent inci-
dences where greenies had caused
choking and intestinal obstructions
in a few dogs. As a result of this
happening, a lot of people have
been torn about greenies.
The bottom line is ... Choke
and intestinal obstruction can hap-
pen with many different treats,
toys, food etc. Not just greenies!
In general, greenies, and


nylabones have been a better and
safer alternative to raw hide bones
and real bones. However, greenies
and nylabones can get a bit expen-
sive, especially in the larger sizes.
So, what a lot of people have been
doing is buying a larger size and
cutting it to make several treats.
What big dogs do with these mini
chunks is, swallow them whole.
What has happened in a few cases
is this had caused a choking or
intestinal obstruction. Both are seri-
ous. Both can be deadly.
If you want to give your dog a
greenie or nylabone then, make
sure you buy them the correct size.
When it gets chewed down to a lit-
tle knuckle, then toss it. I guess
supervision is always helpful with
anything. Hope that explains your
question about greenies Kenny!
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Corner.

Foley resigns: Republican Party selects new candidate


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
Fallout from the scandal involv-
ing inappropriate emails and
instant messages from Congress-
man Mark Foley to teenage Con-
gressional pages continues this
week with questions about how
much Republican Party leaders
knew and when they knew it.
On Sept. 29, Congressman
Foley resigned
his seat in Con-
gress, following
reports in the
media that he ,
had engaged in .
sexually explicit
communica-
tions with these
teenage boys
over the Inter- Mark
net.
"Today I Foley
have delivered a letter to the Speak-
er of the House informing him of
my decision to resign from the U.S.
House of Representatives, effective
today," stated Mr. Foley on Friday. "I
thank the people of Florida's 16th
Congressional District for giving me
the opportunity to serve them for
the last 12 years; it has been an
honor.
"I am deeply sorry and I apolo-
gize for letting down my family and
the people of Florida I have had the
privilege to represent," he said.
Constituents in Foley's 16th
Congressional District expressed
shock at the news.
"It was a shocker," said Mel
Karau, Hendry County GOP Execu-
tive Committee Chairman. "We vis-
ited Mark Foley in Washington. I
think he's done a lot of good work
for District 16. It's a shame if the
allegations are true."
"He represented us well. The
last thing we expected was for
something like this to happen,"
said Glades County Republican
Executive Committee Chairman
Doug Korinke.
Mr. Korinke said he was sur-
prised at the news, which also may
put the Republican party's election
chances in Florida at risk.
"You can only judge a book by
its cover until you read it," he said.
"When this happens, it's a big
black eye and it has a trickle-down
effect on the whole party.
"I don't want to cut Mr. Foley
down because he has done a lot of
great things, but this blemish is
unforgivable," he said.

Tim Mahoney is Democratic
Candidate for the 16th Congres-
sional district. He announced his
candidacy in
mid October.
"The sup-
port I have
received from *
people since I
announced my
decision to run .
for 'Congress
has been over-
whelming," Tim
Mr. Mahoney Mahoney
said. "The
people of the 16th congressional
district want to see a change in
Washington; they want a con-
gressman who they can trust to
reflect their values. Our ability to
put together a top tier campaign
staff and exceed fundraising
goals through a hurricane and
the holidays demonstrates the
viability of our campaign."
Tim Mahoney is an entrepre-
neur and rancher from Venus
and is running for the 16th con-
gressional district seat that
includes the counties of Palm
Beach, Martin, St. Lucie, Okee-
chobee, Highlands, Glades,
Charlotte and Hendry.

some Republican Party members
knew of potential problems with
Foley's interaction with Congres-
sional Pages year ago.
"If you are privy to information
like that, you better let somebody
know," he said.
In Pahokee, Mayor J.P. Sasser
said Foley was a constant source of
support for the Glades initiatives in
Washington, D.C.
"Even though we're not in his
district, he always had strong feel-
ings for the Glades. He was a sup-
porter of our regional water plant,"
said Mr. Sasser. He said news of the
scandal took local residents by sur-
prise.
"Like everyone else, I'm com-
pletely shocked," said Mr. Sasser. "I
just did not know that side of Mark,
which is a private side. My prayers
go to everyone involved."
On Monday, Foley's attorney,
David Roth, told the Associated
Press that Foley checked into an
alcoholism rehabilitation facility
over the weekend. He refused to
identify the facility.
Florida Democratic Party offi-
cials are calling for an investigation
of Mark Foley and of others who
may have known about allegations
against him.
"These Republicans failed to
safeguard vulnerable youths for
whom they were directly responsi-
ble. That's the bottom line. The
Foley Five must be fully investigated
and held accountable for their neg-
ligence," Florida Democratic Party
Chair Karen Thurman said. "The
Foley Five should suspend all cam-
paign activities until the investiga-
tion is complete, and all recipients

'love of family' extended beyond
the home to community and
nation. It was an America that
gave every child the opportunity,
through education and hard
work, to live the 'American
Dream'.
"I am a candidate for Con-

American ideal still lives ... in my
heart and in yours," stated Mr.
Mahoney. "I am a candidate

of Foley-tainted money ought to
donate those funds to the National
Center for Missing and Exploited
Children immediately or they risk
implicitly supporting the actions of
those who protected Mark Foley."
The "Foley Five" as designated
by the Democratic leadership,
include: U.S. House Speaker Den-
nis Hastert, R-Ill., U.S. Rep. Tom
Reynolds, R-N.Y., U.S. Rep. John
Shimkus, R-lll., U.S. House Majority
Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, and
U.S. Rep. RodneyAlexander, R-La.
According to reports in the
Associated Press, the FBI is investi-
gating the case. Ironically, Foley
could end up being prosecuted
under child protection laws he
helped enact.
Foley, a Republican from Fort
Pierce, was elected to Congress in
1994. Prior to his election to Con-
gress, he served in the Florida Leg-
islature.
Under Florida law, Foley's name
will remain on the ballot. The bal-
lots have already been printed and
some absentee ballots have
already been sent out.
The Florida Statutes provide that
"for any reason, an event occurs
which causes a party to have a
vacancy in nomination, not to have
a candidate for an office from that
party, that party can consider desig-
nation of a nominee to fill the
vacancy."
On Monday afternoon, the Flori-
da Republication Committee
named Joe Negron as the new can-
didate for the District 16 Congres-
sional Seat. Votes cast for Foley will
go to Mr. Negron.

Negron runs for Fla. District 16 seat


By Pete Gawda
INI FLORIDA
"I'm now the Republican
nominee," announced State Rep-
resentative Joe Negron in a tele-
phone press conference late Mon-
day afternoon.
He will be running for the 16th
District congressional seat of
Mark Foley who recently resigned
in the light of allegations of
improper conduct concerning
male pages.
Mr. Foley is now receiving
treatment for "alcoholism and
related behavioral problems,"
according to the Associated Press.
He could also face criminal
charges.
Rep. Negron reminded voters
that Mr. Foley's name would still
be on the ballot because it is too


late to reprint ballots.
"The name of Foley is a place
holder," he asserted. "If you want
a conservative congressman who
supports the
president, vote
the Republican
ticket."
He said he 4
will still hold
his seat as state
representative
as he runs for
Congress.
Rep. Joe
Negron Negron
claimed that
his views and his track record
were closer to. those of the voters
than those of his opponent,
Democrat Tim Mahoney, and that
he has the endorsement of U. S.
Senator Mel Martinez.


Mr. Mahoney was quoted by
the Associated Press earlier in the
day as saying that his campaign
will largely remain the same;
speaking about problems in
Washington and letting voters
know who he is.
Rep. Negron said his cam-
paign ads would be running in a
few days. He was especially con-
cerned about getting the word of
his candidacy out to absentee vot-
ers.
Rep. Negron supports the
president's policy on Iraq, while
he said Mr. Mahoney has been
attacking Secretary of Defense
Donald Rumsfeld instead of the
terrorists.
He also claimed to take a
strong stand on environmental
issues.
He said the voters will have to


decide between a conservative
Republican and a liberal Democ-
rat.
Rep. Negron said he was "very
shocked and angry" over allega-
tions of Mr. Foley's misconduct.
He said he had a son the same
age as the congressional pages to
whom Mr. Foley allegedly made
inappropriate and sexually explic-
it comments.
When asked how he would
run a five-week campaign, Rep.
Negron said "With a lot of energy,
a lot of compassion and a lot of
excitement."
Republican leaders around the
state are expected to help in Rep.
Negron's fundraising. He said the
party leadership doesn't want to
lose a Republican seat because of
Mr. Foley's misconduct.

44, is an attorney from Stuart. He
was elected to the Florida House of
Representatives in 2000 and was
subsequently re-elected. As a state
representative he served on the Fis-
cal Council, the Legislative Budget
Commission, the Select Committee
on Medicaid Reform and the Rules
and Calendar Council. He began a
campaign for Florida Attorney Gen-
eral this year but dropped out
when former U.S. Rep. Bill McCol-
lum decided to run.
The 16th Congressional District
includes Glades, Highlands, Okee-
chobee counties, as well as parts of
Hendry, Charlotte, St. Lucie, Martin
and Palm Beach counties.
Until the election, the Washing-
ton, D.C. office and the district
offices of the former Congressman
Foley will continue to serve the
people of the 16th Congressional
District of Florida under the super-
vision of the Clerk of the House of

in handling business with the
departments of the executive
branch of the government, to pro-
vide general status information on
pending legislation and to offer
other general constituent services
provided by House offices.
The Washington, D.C. office and
the Florida district offices are open
on a daily basis to accommodate
congressional business. Under
House rules, the Clerk manages the
offices when a Member dies,
resigns, or is expelled. This authori-
ty, which does not include voting
representation, continues until a
successor is elected to fill the
vacant seat.
This is the seventh vacancy to
occur during the 109th Congress.
Eight vacancies occurred in the
108th Congress due to resignation
or death.

Clewiston Police to



purchase Tasers


Submitted photo/Clewiston Museum
Recognize anyone?
Do you know any of these pictured on the 1938 Clewis-
ton basketball team? If so, please contact the Clewiston
Museum at (863) 983-2870 or by email at clewistonmu-
seum@earthlink.net.


CLEWISTON The City of
CleWiston grants manager D.
McNeil has received notification
from the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement that the
department has been awarded
grant funds for the purchase of
Tasers.
Tasers are a less lethal option
for officers in situations where
lethal force may not be appro-
priate but a suspect has to be
subdued, or for the situation
where lethal force is justified
and available for backup but
lesser force may subdue the
aggressor.
The grant funds awarded will
be utilized for officer training
and purchase of the Tasers and


the holsters for carrying. These
funds augment the police
department budget and provide
a very valuable tool for the offi-
cers and avoid the expense for
the city.
Overall, the benefits to the
officers of having another effec-
tive tool such as the Taser, in
addition to the other less-lethal
weapons already deployed by
the department are great. An
officer will have the quickest
most effective way available to
control and gain custody of
aggressive offenders who pose a
threat to the safety and well
being of our citizens and offi-
cers.

Spinach recall frightening for consumers


A recent health scare involv-
ing e coli bacteria found in bags
of fresh spinach have many con-
sumers wondering just what is
safe to eat.
Unless you have the time,
space and inclination to grow
your own fruits and vegetables,
there is always going to be some
level of risk with fresh produce.
You don't know who handled it
before it was in the store, or
who might have touched it
while it was on display in the
store.
No food supply is ever com-
pletely safe, but the United
States does a good job at main-
taining a safe and adequate
food supply.
There is only so much gov-
ernment monitoring can do.
Consumers have to take care to
protect themselves and their
families.


A
Healthi-
er Life


with Katrina Elsken

For example:
Wash your hands before
handling any food items.
Always wash fruits and
vegetables before using them.
Even if you are going to peel an
apple, wash it first. If there is
bacteria on the peel, when you
cut into the fruit, you may trans-
fer some of the bacteria to the
fruit.
Don't assume fruits and
vegetables that come sealed in
plastic bags are "clean." Wash


before using.
If you are concerned about
pesticide use, watch the origin
labels and find out the pesticide
rules for the countries from
which the foods are imported.
With the exception of bananas,
I do not buy produce that was
not grown in the United States
(and I wash the bananas before
peeling). Some other countries
still use pesticides that are not
allowed in this country. Rather
than try to memorize which
countries allow which pesti-
cides, I just stick to what was
grown in this country.
Pay attention to food warn-
ings on the news, such as the
recent recall of fresh spinach.
Read labels and pay atten-
tion to expiration dates. This is
especially important when gro-
ceries put items on sale or "buy
one, get one free." Sometimes

Tiger golfers win some more


CLEWISTON The Fighting
Tigers added 6 more victories into
their win column while suffering
one defeat since our last report.
This brings the season record to an
impressive 11-3 for the Clewiston
golfers. The Tigers have double
digit victories for the first time since
the golf team was reinstated in the
early 90s at the high school. The
Tigers have worked together this
year as a team to accomplish this
feat by key players stepping up to
help each other out at the right
time. All eleven team members
have contributed to this year's
record number of wins thus far
this season.
After a strong finish and return
from the Crutchfield/Hawkins
tournament in Sebring, the Fight-
ing Tigers dropped a match to the
Riverdale Raiders on September
20 at Pelican Preserve Country
Club in Ft. Myers. The Tigers were
handed their 3rd loss of the season
by a score of 159 for the Raiders
and 179 for the Tigers. Brandon
Pena shot a low score of 39 for
Clewiston on the front nine holes;
however, Nick Longo won medal-
ist honors for the day with a nice
round of 2-under par 34 for
Riverdale.
On Thursday, September 21 the
Tigers hosted Immokalee, Labelle


and Moore Haven at the Clewiston
Golf Club. The Tigers roared loudly
with 3 victories in the quad match.
Clewiston's low score of the day
with a 185 was tallied by Josh
Adams, Jared Bacallao, Steven
Westberry, and Tim Burke. Josh
Adams led the team on the day
with fine score of 41 to win medal-
ist of the day at the event. Labelle
shot 217, Immokalee had a 230
and Moore Haven finished with
272.
The Tigers traveled to "The
Glades" golf course to play a single
match hosted by the Labelle Cow-
boys. The Tigers defeated the
Cowboys for the third time this
season, making it 11 in a row
against the Cowboys over the last
five years. The cats clawed their
win out with leader of the day
James Miracle scratching out a
score of 41 for his 1st medalist
award. Teammates Jared Bacallao
[43], Kyle Jones [52] and Steven
Westberry [55] finished up the
Tiger trouncing of the Cowboys
who had a team score of 222 to the
Tigers 191.
On Wednesday, September 27,
Glades Day and Moore Haven visit-
ed Clewiston to make up a can-
celled match from earlier this year.
The Tigers had split matches to the
Gators the previous 2 seasons los-


ing by a single shot in those two
losses. The 2006 Tigers were too
much for the Gators this year with
a sweep of this season matches
against the Glades Day team. The
Moore Haven Terriers also fell to
the Fighting Tigers as Clewiston
shot their best score of 164.
"The team is peaking at the
right time of year," according to
Coach Kemp. "The district is less
than two weeks out." Brandon
Pena, the team's ace, had a season
best score of 34 for a 2-under par,
followed by James Miracle, Jared
Bacallao and Steven Westberry to
finish out the team effort. The
Gators shot a 201 and the Terriers
finished with a 260 at the match.
The Tigers will finish up the
year with a couple of tough match-
es against four of the top district
teams. On Thursday, September
28, the Tigers will host Riverdale
and Dunbar. The squad looks to
get a little revenge from a loss earli-
er this season against the Raiders.
The last match of the season will
take the Tigers to Fort Myers to face
off with Canturbury and Evangeli-
cal Christian, the preseason picks
for the district.
The Clewiston Fighting Tigers
are looking to upset the district
front runners for the first time with
a very competitive 2006 squad.

Reading


counts at


Clewiston
CLEWISTON A tremen-
dous opportunity for learning
gains in reading has recently
been added to the daily activities
at Clewiston Christian School.
The Scholastic 'Reading
Counts!' computerized program
allows students to select books
at their ability level, read the
books at their own pace, and
take short quizzes on the com-
puter to verify comprehension of
each book read.
Teachers, librarians, and the
administrator can access student
records to make recommenda-
tions or intervene when neces-
sary. The school librarian has
selected books that have appro-
priate content at each level.
CCS students, teachers, and
patents are excited about this
research-based supplement to
our reading curriculum!

United States government helps many local farms


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Florida's sugarcane production
has expanded significantly since
the United States ceased importing
sugar from Cuba in 1961. The com-
munist-backed takeover of Cuba
by Fidel Castro .caused the U.S. to
embargo trade with that country.
Florida is now the largest cane-pro-
ducing region in the United States.
To put it into perspective, before
the Cuban embargo in 1961 Florida
had only 50,000 acres of sugarcane
as compared to 400,000 acres in
2004-05. In 2004, Florida's raw
sugar crop was worth roughly $550
million.
Sugarcane is Florida's most
valuable field crop. It ranks third in
Florida's agricultural economy,
behind the greenhouse/nursery
and citrus industries.
Recently there have been criti-
cisms of the government price sup-
ports of the sugar industry. "Big
sugar." But government assistance
to agriculture as a whole is nothing
new.
In order to settle the western
frontier, the U.S. government gave
title to 160 acres of land to any man
or woman who would settle the
land for five years. In 1862 Abra-
ham Lincoln signed into law the
creation of the Department of Agri-
culture, which among other things
gave the states land for agricultural
colleges.
During World War 1, the govern-
ment guaranteed a minimum price
for wheat and hogs. After the war,
large amounts of food purchased
by the federal government went

overseas to our allies and to relieve
hunger in Europe after the war. All
of this kept farm prices up. When
this demand dropped, so did the
incomes of the U.S. farmers and
ranchers. Farm prices went down
and stayed low. Many experts feel
this was one of the main causes of
the Great Depression of 1929.
Beginning with major proposals
of the 1920s for handling and mar-
keting farm surpluses, the United
States has a long history of price-
support and adjustment programs
starting with the Federal Farm


Board in 1929, the Agricultural
Adjustment Acts of 1933 and 1938,
and their evolution into the farm
legislation of today. Better than a
half-century of history of develop-
ments in price-support legislation
leads up to the systems in place
today.
Then the Federal Farm Act of
1933, the Emergency Farm Mort-
gage Act, the Farm Credit Act both
also in 1933, then the Rural Electrifi-
cation Act and the Soil Conserva-
tion Act of 1935 followed.
However, surpluses, began to


""""~


accumulate and new legislation
was passed. The Agricultural
Adjustment Act of 1938 stressed an
"ever-normal granary" plan of bal-
anced abundance, with non-
recourse loans for cooperators
(farm cooperatives), acreage allot-
ments, marketing quotas for
"basic" crops, and a goal of "pari-
ty" prices and incomes for farmers.
This act, with many modifications,
remains the basis of agricultural
price support and adjustment law
today.
The school lunch program and
free milk programs helped distrib-
ute surplus food to those in need.
Even before World War II, the U.S.
supplied food to Great Britain and
the Soviet Union and the Steagall
Amendment provided price sup-
ports for those commodities.
As the decades rolled on, the
federal Agricultural Adjustment Act
has changed in response to fluctu-
ating domestic and word markets
to help American agriculture real-
ize stable prices using various
methods: price supports, acreage
reduction, government or farmer-
owned reserves, and import and
export quotas and tariffs, among
others.
Today, risk-management (crop
insurance and disaster relief) is
practiced by farmers as any sensi-
ble businessman would. Congress
first authorized federal crop insur-
ance in the 1930s along with other
initiatives to help farmers and
ranchers recover from the com-
bined effects of. the Great Depres-
sion and the Dust Bowl. The Feder-
al Crop Insurance Corporation



(FCIC) was created in 1938 to carry
out the program. Initially, the pro-
gram was started as an experi-
ment, and crop insurance activities
were mostly limited to major crops
in the main producing areas. Crop
insurance remained an experiment
until passage of the Federal Crop
Insurance Act of 1980.
The 1980 Act expanded the
crop insurance program to more
crops and regions of the country.
It encouraged expansion to
replace the free disaster cover-
age (compensation to farmers
for prevented planting losses
and yield losses) offered under
Farm Bills created in the 1960s
and 1970s, because the free cov-
erage competed with the experi-
mental crop insurance program.
To encourage participation in
the expanded crop insurance
program, the 1980 Act author-
ized a subsidy equal to 30 per-
cent of the crop insurance pre-
mium limited to the dollar
amount at 65 percent coverage.

Today, farmers must either pur-
chase crop insurance or waive their
right to any other relief that may
pertain to that crop year. Crop
insurance is made available by gov-
ernment and private agencies.
In 1996 the U.S.D.A. Risk Man-
agement Agency was created to
administer these programs.
By 1998 two-thirds of the total
field crops planted in the United
States (except for hay) was insured
according to the U.S.D.A National
Agricultural Statistics Service. The
value of this insurance was $28 bil-
lion.

Florida crossbow hunting seasons opens


Football season's in full swing,
and the 2006-07 hunting season's
starting to crank up. Archery sea-
son's been going on in most of
the state and in this issue, I want
to talk about three other seasons
about to come in muzzle-load-
ing gun, the first phase of dove
and the brand new crossbow sea-
son.
A crossbow season has been
established for private lands -
created for any hunter who'd like
to use a crossbow or continue
using a bow. This is not just for
disabled hunters.
The new season's been insert-
ed between archery and muzzle-
loading gun in the Central and
South hunting zones, lasting five
days Oct. 23-27 and Oct. 9-13,
respectively. In the Northwest
Zone, it comes in later on the
Monday after Thanksgiving (Nov.
27) and lasts one week through
Dec. 3.
Crossbow season doesn't
apply to wildlife management
areas (WMAs).
The most common game to
take during crossbow season will
be deer and wild hog. Only bucks
may be taken, and one antler
must be at least five inches long
above the hairline. The daily bag
limit on antlered deer is two. Wild
hogs, considered livestock on pri-
vate lands may, with landowner
permission, be hunted year-
round with no bag or size limits.


Outta'
the
Woods


byTonyYoung

It's also legal to shoot gobblers
or bearded turkeys during cross-
bow season. Only one may be
taken per day, and there's a two-
bird fall-season limit. But, you
can't hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must
have a minimum draw weight of
35 pounds and hand-held releas-
es on bows are permitted. For
hunting deer, hog and turkey,
broadheads must have at least
two sharpened edges with a mini-
mum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. Except for
turkeys, hunters may take resi-
dent game over bait.
Some things you can't do dur-
ing crossbow season include:
hunt deer, hog or turkey with
dogs; use explosive or drug-
injecting arrows and possess
firearms.
Immediately following the


close of crossbow season in the
Central and South hunting zones
is the beginning of muzzle-load-
ing gun season. Season dates run
Oct. 28 Nov. 5 and Oct. 14 22,
respectively. Muzzle-loading sea-
son comes in later in the North-
west Zone and runs Nov. 17-19.
The only change to the muz-
zle-loading gun season this year is
that bows and crossbows are
now legal methods of taking
game on private lands, along with
muzzleloaders. On WMAs noth-
ing has changed and only muzzle-
loaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the
same for muzzle-loading gun sea-
son as crossbow season. And,
legal game, including bag limits
and prohibited methods for tak-
ing game, also are the same as
crossbow season. Bag limits and
antler/size restrictions for game
on WMAs can differ, so check the
specifics of the area before you
hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleload-
ers firing single bullets must be at
least .40-caliber. Guns firing two
or more balls must be 20-gauge
or larger. You may not use muz-
zleloaders with self-contained
cartridge ammunition capabilities
or possess modern firearms dur-
ing muzzle-loading gun season.
It's against the law to use bait
on WMAs at any time.
The first phase of the mourn-
ing and white-winged dove sea-


son begins Oct. 7 and ends Oct.
30 statewide. Shooting hours dur-
ing this first phase are noon to
sunset, and there's a 12-bird daily
bag limit.
The only firearm you're
allowed to hunt doves with is a
shotgun, but you can't use one
larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns
must be plugged to a three-shell
capacity (magazine and chamber
combined).
You may hunt doves over an
agricultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted as part of reg-
ular agricultural practices. How-
ever, it's against the law to scatter
agricultural products over an area
for the purpose of baiting.
Some things you can't do
while dove hunting are: using
rifles, pistols or crossbows; shoot-
ing from a moving vehicle; or
herding or driving doves with a
vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunting
license, you'll need a $5 crossbow
permit to hunt during crossbow
season. A $5 muzzle-loading gun
permit is needed to hunt during
muzzleloader season, and you'll
need a no-cost migratory bird
permit if you're going to hunt
doves. If you hunt on aWMA, you
must have a management area
permit that costs $26.50.

Tigers romp over Cardinal Newman in district win


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers got
their district competition off to a
grand start on Friday night as
they traveled to Cardinal New-
man and came back with an
impressive 49-3 victory. Fresh off
their big upset of nationally
ranked Glades Central last week,
the Tigers rolled behind the
powerhouse running of tailback
Jamal Hubert and the passing
combo of speedy wideout John
Melton and quarterback Jared
Combass.
The game did not start too
positively for the Tigers. They
took the opening kickoff and
Combass immediately hit
Hubert in the flats and he turned
the ball up field and ripped off
39 yards. After two short gains
on running plays, Combass
threw what appeared to be
another flats pass but it wasn't
caught and was ruled a lateral.
Crusader Conlan Kennedy
scooped up the loose ball and
ran it 43 yards to the Tiger 22.
With their backs against the wall
early, the Tiger defense held the
Crusaders on downs and Bren-
don Gibbons nailed a 40-yard
field goal to put the Tigers in a 3-
0 hole. Following a touchback
on the kickoff, Jamal Hubert
rushed for 5 and 23 yards. On
the third play of the drive, Com-
bass dropped back and hooked
up with Melton for a 52 yard
score. Kicker Will Davis convert-
ed his first of seven conversions
on the night.
The game then entered into a
pattern that would prevail
throughout the contest. The Car-
dinal Newman offense simply
could not muster an attack
against the tough Tiger defense.
They were not able to muster
only a couple of threatening
drives the balance of the game.
In the second period, the Tigers
second touchdown came on a 9
play, 78-yard drive with Hubert
racing for the final 40. A few
minutes later, Clewiston was
back on the scoreboard when
on a third and long Combass
found Melton on a deep post
pattern. Melton raced right
between two Crusader defend-
ers and caught the perfect spiral
from Combass for a 58 yard
score. The Tigers carried a 21-3
lead into the.intermission.
On their first second half pos-
session, the Tigers quickly cov-
ered 84 yards in five snaps with
Combass getting the final yard
on a quarterback sneak. Key
plays in the drive were impres-
sive 34 and 33-yard runs by
Hubert and backup tailback
Collin Ricketts, respectively. The
defense then held Cardinal New-
man and forced a punt from the
Crusader 25. Return specialist
John Melton pulled in the punt,
raced to the Tiger sideline and


Jamal Hubert skips over a
sail for a 34 yard gain.

then turned straight up the field
and raced untouched for the 59
yard score.
The last period was all Tigers
but many new faces in the game
as Coach Larry Antonacci was
freely substituting and giving the
starters a break. The Tigers
picked up their sixth touchdown
on a short 38 yard drive after a
poor Crusader punt. Backup tail-
back Darris Hughes got the final
10 yards as he was dragging half
of the Crusader defense along
with him. The final score of the
evening was scored by Alton
Edmond, another backup tail-
back, who scored on a one-yard
smash. The 20-yard series was
setup when Tiger Carl White-
head scooped another short
Crusader puni Faind returned it 16
yards. Yet another backup tail-
back, Senior Reggie Gray, had
three rushes totaling 19 yards on
the drive.
On the night, Jamal Hubert
piled up 158 yards rushing on 15
attempts to remain one of the
top rushing backs in South Flori-
da. Hubert's 39-yard pass recep-
tion and an 18-yard kickoff
return yardage brought him up
to 215 yards in total offense for
the game. On the night, Jared


Combass completed 4 of 8 pass-
es for 167 yards, all in the first
half.
The Tigers improved to 5-0, 1-
0 in the district, while the Cru-
saders dropped to 3-2. Tiger
Coach Larry Antonacci was
pleased with the team's intense
effort on the heels of the big win
over Glades Central. He said,
"We've been telling the guys all
week to keep looking forward
and stay focused and they really
did. Our defense was all over the
ball tonight and pretty much
shut them down."
The Tiger defense allowed a
total of 119 yards offense on 47
snaps. Defensive end Johnny
Jones led the charge with 8 tack-
les, including three running
sacks totaling 11 yards in losses.
The entire Tiger defense was
relentless in pursuit and gang
tackling, punishing Crusader
runners and receivers.
Going into this game, Clewis-
ton was ranked 17th nationally
by the Max Preps Sports website
and were ranked third in State
Class 2A, behind Chaminade
and Jacksonville Bolles. The
Tigers will host Bishop Verot at
Cane Field next Friday night in a
non-district contest.

Department of Energy grant promotes conservation


TALLAHASSEE The Depart-
ment's Florida Energy Office
(FEO) has been awarded more
than $220,000 from the U.S.
Department of Energy (DOE). The
grant, provided by DOE's Building
Technologies Program within the
Office of Energy Efficiency and
Renewable Energy, will be used
to further energy conservation
measures throughout Florida.
"The Florida Energy Office
continues to implement innova-
tive projects to promote energy


conservation throughout the
state," said Secretary Castille.
"By securing federal funding,
Florida can further its energy ini-
tiatives to use less energy and
fuel economic growth," said
Secretary Castille.
With the grant, the FEO will
develop the Automated Energy
Code Compliance System, a pro-
gram proposed by the University
of Central Florida's Florida Solar
Energy Center. The system is a
building standards database that


will allow designers and builders
to access energy-saving building
requirements and submit applica-
tions for approval. The system
streamlines the authorization
process and allows continuous
updates to enforcement.
"The Automated Energy Code
Compliance System will allow
Florida to become a leader in the
industry, providing a working
example of how modern technol-
ogy can complement and
improve energy conservation,"


said FEO Director Allan Guyet.
"By providing instant access to
information and compliance
resources, Florida's building
industry can more efficiently
implement energy conservation
efficiency measures."
The DOE is providing $6 mil-
lion to expand 22 federal-state
partnerships to increase energy
conservation in residential and
commercial buildings. The funds
assist in the implementation of
training programs, provide tech-


nical assistance, further education
efforts and promote construction
of energy-efficient buildings.
Spearheaded by Governor Jeb
Bush and passed by the Florida
Legislature, the 2006 Florida Ener-
gy Act takes the first comprehen-
sive step toward a diverse, reliable
and secure energy future by
reducing regulatory barriers to
expedite electric generation
capacity and providing rebates,
grants and tax incentives to drive
the development of alternative


fuel technologies.
The FEO is the state's primary
center for energy policy under

Homemade first aid remedies can be 'earth friendly'


Pollution Prevention Week may
be over, but that's no reason not to
take advantage of these ideas.
Some are commercially available,
but many cleaners, polishes, insec-
ticides and the like can be made at
home from readily available and
often very inexpensive ingredients.
Some allergies that can be
traced to chemicals in common
household products can be helped
with homemade green household
products. If you or a member of
your household have such aller-
gies, check with your health care
professional before relying on any
information.
Although it is not included in
MSU's list, it has been said that
ammonia (think glass cleaner) will
almost stop the pain and itch of fire
ant bites. Judge that for yourself. It
is unresearched.
The following partial list comes
from the Michigan State University
(MSU) Student Union. Some of
them sound really interesting.
Insect Bites

Bees
The pain can be soothed by
a thick paste of baking soda and
water.


Half an onion applied to a bee
sting helps stop the pain and
swelling.
Chiggers
To ease the pain and itching of
chigger bites, rub with a moist
aspirin tablet.
General
To treat insect bites, rub on
apple cider vinegar to relieve the
itching. A paste made of baking
soda also helps.
To prevent insect bites, avoid
wearing perfume, bright colors
and flowery print clothes or bright
jewelry.
Mosquitoes
Soak bites in salt water or
apply a paste of salt mixed into lard
or cold cream.
Ants
Trace a line of ants to find out
where they are entering the house
and then seal it off. You can also try
pouring a barrier of any of the fol-
lowing at the place where ants
enter the house: cinnamon, cream
of tartar, red chili pepper, salt, dried
mint or sage, or cucumber peel-


ings. Also try that old gift perfume
you don't like. Some perfumes may
kill or repel ants.
For heavy ant infestations, mix
a tablespoon of sugar and a table-
spoon of borax with 2 tablespoons
of water to make a thick syrup.
Soak cotton balls in mixture and
place the cotton balls on some-
thing flat so that ants can get to it.
Place it in the middle of the ant
infestation. Ants will eat it and take
it back to the nest. Slowly but sure-
ly, the numbers will diminish. Have
patience. Keep well out of reach of
children and pets.
Attach bands of sticky, adhe-
sive materials around base of
plants and trees to deter ants,
which can carry and colonize
aphids. Ants like the sweet secre-
tion of aphids and protect them
from natural enemies.
Border gardens with bone
meal.
Mix 2 tablespoons boric acid,
2 tablespoons sugar and a cup of
water. Soak paper towels, place on
dishes, and set out for ants. Keep
away from children and pets.
Mix 4 ounces of mint jelly with
2 level tablespoons of powdered
boric acid. Cut small squares of
masking tape and dab mixture on


tape. Stick on floors behind cabi-
nets and appliances. Take precau-
tions for children and pets.
Aphids
Some soap sprays are effec-
tive insecticides. They must be
sprayed directly on the insect in
order to penetrate its body. Mix a
teaspoon of liquid soap in a gallon
of water. Try different soaps; some
may be more effective than others.
Use aphids, mealybugs, whiteflies,
earwigs and scales.
Crush colonies on plant tips,
or prune them off.
Introduce ladybugs or
lacewings, natural enemies of
aphids.
Plant garlic, chives, petunias
and nasturtiums to repel aphids,
but be aware that some plants (gar-
lic, for instance) may inhibit the
growth of certain vegetable plants.
Fleas
As a first step, vacuum!
Remove the vacuum bag and seal
the "catch" in a tightly closed bag.
Dispose of it.
Flea preparations come in dif-
ferent formulas for use on your
pet, in the house, or in the yard.
Select products that contain two


types of ingredients: low toxic
adult flea killers such as pyrethrins
plus insect growth regulators
(IGRs) to kill the flea eggs, larvae
and pupae. Pyrethrins have a
boosted effect in combination
with a chemical enhancer such as
piperonyl butoxide. Read the label
for directions on use.
Consult your veterinarian
before choosing products, since
pet tolerance for insecticides varies
according to the species, age and
skin condition of the pet.
Select insecticides for the yard
that are time-released for longer
effect.
To find out how toxic a specif-
ic insecticide is call 1-800-858-7378
(National Pesticide Network) or 1-
800-TDA-REGS (TX Dept. of Agri-
culture).
Flies
Prevent their development in
organic wastes by keeping
kitchen garbage in tightly closed
containers. In warm weather, the
average garbage pail can attract
and allow reproduction of 1,000+
flies a week.
Sprinkle dry soap into
garbage cans after they have been
washed and allowed to dry; it acts


as a repellent.
Use fly swatters, flypaper
strips or fly traps.
Place screened enclosures
over cabbage plants to protect
against the fly that breeds the cab-
bage maggot.
Plant tansy near your kitchen
door or where flies tend to cluster.
Other fly repellents include oil of
clove and mint sprigs.
Set a sponge in a saucer and
soak it with oil of lavender to repel
flies.
Shape a piece of paper into a
cone and insert it into the neck of
a baited jar. Flies can get in but
not out.
SA pot of basil set on a window
sill or table will help reduce the
number of flies in a room.
Mosquitoes
Rub citronella oil on exposed
areas or burn citronella candles.
Do not eliminate such natural
predators as dragonflies' or the
praying mantis.
Other natural repellents are
pennyroyal, mint rubbed on the
skin or tansy planted near a door.
Basil plants also repel mosquitoes.
Eliminate pools of stagnant
water.

Water managers adopt new budget


At a public hearing held on
Wednesday, Sept. 27 at its' head-
quarters in West Palm Beach, the
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) adopted the agency's
$1.3 billion budget for fiscal year
2007 (Oct. 1, 2006 Sept. 30,
2007). For the 10th year in a row,
the Board also voted to hold mill-
age rates (about 70 cents per
$1,000 in assessed property value)
steady for the 16 counties within
the regional agency's boundaries.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District's decision to con-
tinue its existing millage rates is in
support of significant regional
water resource responsibilities
with lasting benefits," said Govern-


ing Board Chairman Kevin McCar-
ty. "From making sure the regional
flood control system is in peak
operating condition to accelerating
the construction of Everglades and
Lake Okeechobee restoration proj-
ects, to stretching limited water
supplies, funding is needed to
carry out these and many other -
major initiatives that are critically
important for Florida's future."
The $1.3 billion budget includes
more than $400 million in bor-
rowed funds that are needed to
meet the aggressive schedules of
the Acceler8 Everglades restoration
construction program. That fast-
tracked pace is already paying off
as numerous projects are already
under way significantly ahead of


initial schedules. That means the
Everglades ecosystem will start
reaping the benefits of restoration
projects much sooner than antici-
pated.
"The District's management of
one of the nation's largest public
works operations has been a
model for all to follow," said Gov.
Jeb Bush in a letter to SFWMD's
board. "I appreciate your commit-
ment, working on behalf of the citi-
zens of this state and ensuring ade-
quate natural resources for our
future. The District plays an integral
part in the development of our
state's environmental policy and
should continue to be engaged in
the conservation and restoration of
our natural resources."


Other key budget highlights
include an emphasis on alternative
water supply development and
implementation; funding to cover
35 percent increases in pump sta-
tion fuel costs, repairs and
upgrades to critical flood control
structures and support for Herbert
Hoover Dike repairs funding for
Lake Okeechobee and Estuary
Recovery (LOER) initiatives,
including construction of the Fast-
Track Projects north of the lake; the
establishment of capital construc-
tion and hurricane cleanup
reserves; the construction of addi-
tional water quality improvement
projects; and an expansion of
water resource partnerships with
local governments.


El Nino effect may affect your garden


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
A peek at the calendar will tell
that summer left the calendar near-
ly two weeks ago, and at the last
Sunday of this month, we lose that
hour of daylight that was "saved"
last spring. It all means that fall is
here, and for the gardeners among
us, it means that time's a-wastin' to
get your garden growing.
First the good news: this year
our first-ever County Fair will be a
place to show what's growing in
Okeechobee's gardens. Our office
will be working with the Fair to add
a large display of your own home-
grown produce at this March 9-18,
2007 event.
And now the bad news: Clima-
tologists from the Southeast Cli-
mate Consortium tell us that El
Nifio has returned to the Pacific
Ocean. This means we could be in
for a cool, wet winter here in Flori-
da. Today's column will highlight a
few of the weather effects that may
impact fall and winter vegetable
gardens.
El Nino/Southern
Oscillation (ENSO)
According to the National
Weather Service, El Nifio has
returned. The years 2002-03 saw a
weak ENSO event, and the forecast
now calls for a weak event this year.
However, it's too early to tell if the
effects of this weather pattern


could be a normal or a strong El
Nifio event, such as the ones of
1982-83 and 1997-98.
While scientists are not sure
why these events occur, El Nifio
events are a warming of large areas
of the Pacific Ocean. This hot spot
changes wind patterns and causes
the jet stream to move weather pat-
terns across the globe in extraordi-
nary ways. The result of ENSO is
changes in normal temperature
and moisture patterns.
The bright side of El Nifio is that
it is associated with a less active
tropical hurricane season. But this
is not all a good thing because the
decrease in tropical weather may
bring 20 30 percent less rainfall
than normal to Florida in the fall. So
it's great for Gator and Brahman
football, but not for crops and gar-
dens.
A cool wet winter
However, once colder months
arrive (Nov. March), the weather
patterns change. El Nifio may bring
more frequent storms, excessive
rainfall, and cooler temperatures.
Florida can expect 40 60 percent
more rainfall than normal in the
winter months. And, the increased
clouds associated with El Niflo
mean cooler than normal tempera-
tures during the winter months.
While average temperatures are
often cooler, El Nifio actually
reduces the risk of severe cold out-
breaks in Florida and the South-


east. The strong subtropical jet
stream that is typical of El Nifo acts
to "block" cold arctic air masses
from our area. So, expect to be
chilled to the bone, but not frozen
solid when El Nifio comes into
play.
Planning for wet,
cool gardens
Cooler winter temperatures
mean those with temperate fruit
plants like apples, peaches, and
blueberries may see their plants
bloom earlier. Because these
plants flower when they get
enough chilling hours, fruit will set
sooner. With El Niflo, moist cool
conditions bring a greater danger
that young fruit may be damaged
by fungal diseases.
For our vegetable gardeners
hoping to exhibit at the Fair, here
are some things to think about
when planning your plantings:
Be sure you have prepared
your plant beds for good drainage.
Raised beds would be a good idea,
so that vegetable roots will be
above any water left standing in the
row middles.
Choose varieties that are
resistant to well known root dis-
eases. If you see a cultivar that is
resistant or tolerant to soil-born
pathogens such as Phytophthora,
Pythium or bacterial wilt, that's the
one you want.
Plant or transplant a bit earlier
than is suggested in our Florida


Vegetable Gardening Guide, as a
lack of warmth and cloudy days
mean that vegetables will take a lit-
tle longer to reach maturity. This is
especially important for the warm-
season crops like tomatoes, beans,
and sweet potatoes.
Vegetable gardening
publications available
Commercial vegetable growers
are advised that Vegetable Produc-
tion Handbooks for Florida 2006-
2007 have finally arrived in our
office come by for a copy of call to
make other arrangements. These
are free, thanks to the support of
Bayer CropScience and Vance Pub-
lishing. We ask growers to please
dispose of previous year's guides,
as they contain recommendations
that are not longer valid.
Home vegetable gardeners,
especially those new to growing
vegetables in Florida, are urged to
get a copy of our UF Florida Veg-
etable Gardening Guide. It is also
available free at our office, or can
be downloaded from personal
computers.
As we progress through the veg-
etable gardening season, I'll update
you with other gardening tips to
help you conquer El Nifio. If you
would be interested in attending a
vegetable gardening class here at
the Extension office, give me a call
or send me an email, and we will
let you know when these programs
are being held.


Nutrient loading analysis reviewed


FORT MYERS,..-. The South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) nutrient loading analysis
public workshop originally sched-
uled on Thursday, Sept. 28, will
now be held on Thursday, Oct. 19.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District will present the
results from the Caloosahatchee
River Estero Watershed nutrient
loading analysis at the public work-


shop.

Management Model (WMM) uses
a database platform to estimate
annual or wet vs. dry seasonal pol-
lutant loads.
The purpose of the meeting will
be to present the WMM develop-
ment and calibration, to describe
the analysis of current baseline
conditions and selected future land


use sIcenarios. Also SFWMD will ,
demonstrate the potential effective-
ness of Best Management Practices
implementation, permit modifica-
tions and other potential hydrolog-
ic alterations.
The meeting will take place at
the SFWMD office located at 2301
McGregor Blvd. in Ft. Myers from
10a.m. until noon.
For additional information


regarding this public workshop,
contact the District's Stormwater

tors are asked to give
best to God without


excuse, without complaint,
and without compromise.
What can we do to help our
shepherds in their ministry?
What can we do to help
them? What can we do to
honor them for their heart
and commitment? Why not
ask God to shower them with
an abundance of they need in
their personal and profession-
al life? (You can begin with
love, hope, joy, faith, peace,
power, wisdom, vision, and
courage!)
October is pastor appreci-
ation month, and there is no
better time to lift our pastors
up in prayer. As spiritual lead-
ers of God's people, pastors
should always be high on our
prayer list. Satan knows that if
he can strike a shepherd, the
sheep will scatter, and Satan
loves nothing more than to
see an effective spiritual
leader get distracted or over-


whelmed or thwarted in
some way.
As a result, pastors need to
be prayed for not just in times
of crisis or church difficulties
- but every day. Pray for
God's special anointing and
the bold proclamation of the
Gospel message in your shep-
herd's preaching and teach-
ing. Pray also for God's bless-
ing in your pastor's personal
and spiritual life. Pray for rest
and renewal and revival. Pray
for effective study and growth
in God's word. Pray for your
shepherd's protection from
dark and worldly forces. Pray
for the effective ministry of
God's grace. Pray constantly.
Pray intentionally. Pray faith-
fully.
By choosing to pray for our
pastors, we are not only
choosing to uplift, support,
and protect our shepherds, we
are empowering them in their


calling and in their ministry.
You might have a great
pastor who is powerful, mov-
ing, and inspired. You might
have a minister who is gifted
in other areas. It doesn't mat-
ter. If you combine their cur-
rent ministry and preaching
with a support group of peo-
ple praying for eyes to be
opened, hearts to be recep-
tive, and lives to be changed,
great things will happen in
your church and in your wor-
ship service! Imagine how
much more powerful and
inspiring your pastor's min-
istry and preaching might be
if combined with prayer sup-
port like that!
God works through the
prayers of His people. Put
prayer to work for your pas-
tor! Put it to work today! You
and your church will reap the
benefits.

e ad noted on a billboard


that their clients were people
"that bought tools they would
never use." Maybe not, but
should the occasion arise, they
would be ready.
There have been many
times in my ministry where
something will come up and I
will remember having learned a
little about it somewhere along
the way. It is what separates the
true doctor from the run-of-the-
mill one; the real pilot from the
guy who flies the plane, the
mechanic from the parts-
changer.
The New Testament speaks
of "going the second mile
(Matthew 5:41)" and doing
more than is required as a wit-
ness to our profession of faith.
Do more than is required to
help the needy; give more than
others expect of us, love even
those you find unlovable (v.45)
and then, we will have an
answer to, "What would hap-
pen if...?" in our spiritual lives.
Ninety-nine percent of the


time, we are ready to help or
ready to share; it's that one
percent of the time that we
see what will be needed and
give it before it is even asked
for, or we do something
before the needy even know
they will need our help these
are the times that make the
difference between the athlete
and the champion. We get
"busy" and do what we must
each day; our labors carry us
through the daily routines.
Ninety-nine percent of the
time it is enough; but then
there is that one percent every
now and again in our lives or
the lives of those we care
about. That's the time when
the hours spent with scriptur-
al reading or, having attended
a group to learn more about
our faith, or having volun-
teered to help out with some-
one who needs extra care;
that gives us the resources to
be where we're really needed
and to bring something of


eternal value.
Some of the greatest spiritu-
al leaders in history have been
people who dared to ask,
"What would happen if...?" and
lay the foundations for the
ongoing reformation of faith
that is our heritage. They did
not stop by doing only what
they had to do, but went
beyond and asked the hard
questions.
In the search they laid the
foundations for the Reforma-
tion, or issues of justice, or new
ways of bringing a better life to
people. Peter, the fisherman,
cried "Master, we have worked
hard all night and haven't
caught anything. But because
you say so, I will let down the
nets (Luke 5:5)" The catch was
more than could be hauled in
and Peter was changed by
going beyond what was expect-
ed. He was a true professional;
fishing-wise, and spiritually too.
He dared to think about, "What
wbuld happen if...?"

Cooling of oceans may be just a 'speed bump'


The average temperature of
the water near the top of the
Earth's oceans has cooled sig-
nificantly since 2003. The new
research suggests that global
warming trends are not always
steady in their effects on ocean
temperatures. Although the
average temperature of the
upper oceans has cooled sig-
nificantly since 2003, the
decline is a fraction of the total
ocean warming seen over the
previous 48 years.
"This research suggests
global warming isn't always
steady but happens with occa-
sional 'speed bumps'," said
Josh Willis, a co-author of the
study at NASA's Jet Propulsion
Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.
"This cooling is probably natu-
ral climate variability. The
oceans today are still warmer
than they were during the
1980s, and most scientists
expect the oceans will eventu-
ally continue to warm in
response to human-induced
climate change."
For the study, John Lyman,
at the NOAA Pacific Marine
Environmental Laboratory in
Seattle, Wash. and his co-
authors estimated the heat
content of the upper 2,500 feet
of Earth's oceans from 1993 to
2005. This represents about 20
percent of the global ocean's
average depth.
Researchers found that the
average temperature of the
upper ocean rose by 0.16
degrees Fahrenheit from 1993
to 2003, and then fell 0.055
degrees Fahrenheit from 2003


"This research suggests global warming isn't
always steady but happens with occasional
'speed bumps'. This cooling is probably natu-
ral climate variability. The oceans today are
still warmer than they were during the 1980s,
and most scientists expect the oceans will
eventually continue to warm in response to
human-induced climate change."
Josh Willis,
co-author of the study at NASA's Jet
Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif.


to 2005. The recent decrease is
a dip equal to about one-fifth
of the heat gained by the
ocean between 1955 and
2003. They analyzed data from
a broad array.of ocean moor-
ings, floats and shipboard sen-
sors, and supported their
results with data from NASA's
Jason and Topex/Poseidon
satellites. Mr. Lyman said the
recent cooling is not unprece-
dented. "While global ocean
temperatures have generally
increased over the past 50
years, there have also been
substantial decadal decreas-
es," he said. "Other studies
have shown that a similar
rapid cooling took place from
1980 to 1983. But overall, the
long-term trend is warming."
Monitoring the heat con-
tent of the oceans is vital to
understanding how Earth's
energy balance is changing.
"The capacity of Earth's
oceans to store the sun's ener-


gy is more than 1,000 times
that of Earth's atmosphere,"
Lyman said. "It's important to
measure upper ocean temper-
ature, since 84 percent of the
heat absorbed by Earth since
the mid-1950s has gone
toward warming the ocean.
Measuring ocean temperature
is really measuring the
progress of global warming."
The NOAA Pacific Marine Envi-
ronmental Laboratory is cur-
rently developing an ocean
observing system to better
quantify changes in the ocean
to include heat content.
The recent changes in
ocean temperature run deep.
A small amount of cooling was
detected at the ocean's sur-
face, consistent with global
measurements of sea-surface
temperature. The maximum
amount of cooling was seen at
a depth of about 1,300 feet,
but substantial cooling was
still observed at 2,500 feet and


the cooling appears to extend
deeper.
Mr. Lyman said the cause of
the recent cooling is not yet
clear. Research suggests it may
be due to a net loss of heat
from the Earth. "Further work
will be necessary to solve this
cooling mystery," he said.
Another implication of the
study is greater uncertainty in
estimates of long-term ocean
warming rates.
"Understanding decadal
rises and dips in Earth's ocean
temperature is important in
predicting Earth's climate," Mr.
Lyman said. "Hopefully, the
results of our study will help
refine the ability of computer
models to make these predic-
tions."
Mr. Willis said the findings
have significant implications
for global sea-level rise. "Aver-
age sea level goes up partly
due to warming and thermal
expansion of the oceans and
partly due to runoff from melt-
ing glaciers and ice sheets,"
Mr. Willis said. "The recent
cooling episode suggests that
sea level should have actually
decreased in the past two
years. Despite this, sea level
has continued to rise. This
may mean that sea level rise
has recently shifted from
being mostly caused by
warming to being dominated
by melting. This idea is consis-
tent with recent estimates of
ice-mass loss in Antarctica
and accelerating ice-mass loss
on Greenland."
The study included


researchers from NASA,
NOAA and the Joint Institute
for Marine and Atmospheric
Research of the University of
Hawaii, Manoa. Results are
published in the journal Geo-
physical Research Letters.
In 2007 NOAA, an agency
of the U.S. Commerce Depart-
ment, celebrates 200 years of
science and service to the
nation. Starting with the estab-
lishment of the U.S. Coast and
Geodetic Survey in 1807 by
Thomas Jefferson much of
America's scientific heritage is
rooted in NOAA. The agency is
dedicated to enhancing eco-
nomic security and national
safety through the prediction
and research of weather and
climate-related events and
information service delivery
for transportation, and by pro-
viding environmental steward-
ship of the nation's coastal
and marine resources.
Through the emerging Global
Earth Observation System of
Systems (GEOSS), NOAA is
working with its federal part-
ners, more than 60 countries
and the European Commis-
sion to develop a global moni-
toring network that is as inte-
grated as the planet it
observes, predicts and pro-
tects.
