Montura reviews law plans


District to vote
whether or not to pay
for extra deputies

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office proposed a
contract to the Montura governing
board to provide more law
enforcement officers to service the
Montura Ranch Estates area, but


neither side has yet reached a final
determination on the issue.
While it seems that some of the
elected officials on the Central
County Water District Board are in
agreement with the concept, oth-
ers are not taking such a favorable
a view of the contract and have
questioned why the board should
be the one to provide funding for
the services.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee, a propo-
nent of assigning more deputies to
patrol the area, spoke at the
board's last meeting in September.


With Montura a rural area com-
prised of approximately 8,500
acres, the need for increased law
enforcement there is growing, the
sheriff explained.
"Montura needs additional
deputies, it is growing and crime is
too," Sheriff Lee said at the meet-
ing. According to him, sheriff's
office funds currently only allow
for a single deputy to ride out to
the area from time to time, with no
deputies assigned full-time to
Montura.
Board members, however,

According to the Clewiston Police Department, a robbery suspect wearing a shirt tied
around his head held two clerks at gunpoint while he demanded money from the regis-
ters. Police made two arrests in the case recently.

PD arrest two robbery suspects


Police say victims
held at gunpoint

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Two sus-
pects were arrested last week
in connection with a robbery at
the Git-n-Split convenience
store in Clewiston.
Officers with the Clewiston
Police Department apprehend-
ed Wayne Alvin, 20, and Jacob
Starling, 28, both from Harlem,
in connection with the rob-
bery.
The incident happened
Sept. 29.
According to witnesses, an
armed male entered the store
.that day wearing a black shirt
and camouflage pants. The
suspect reportedly had a black
shirt tied around his head.
Employees said the suspect
entered the building and point-
ed the gun at them while


Wayne
Alvin


Jacob
Starling


demanding them to hand over
the money in the store's cash
registers.
When the employees hand-
ed him the bag of money, the
suspect took off on foot.
Detectives secured the area
and searched for the suspects,
but were unable to locate them
immediately after the incident.
What they did find, howev-
er, was a bank bag with $650 in
cash and several checks made
out to the store, apparently left
behind by the robber. The.bag
was found in a nearby alley-
way.


Detectives would get their
biggest break after reviewing
the store's surveillance video.
The individual frames of video
gave detectives a clear look at
their suspect and seemed to
corroborate the witness
accounts.
Working from the video, the
police department obtained
warrants for arrest.
Alvin was arrested and
charged with robbery with a
firearm and grand theft. Star-
ling was arrested and charged
with association with the fact
and possession of firearm by a
convicted felon. Both were
arrested Oct. 5.
Alvin and Starling were
transported to the Hendry
County Jail.
"What truly helped us to the
capture the suspects a good
video surveillance and positive
leads that were also given,"
said Detective Chad Pelham of
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment, who handled the case.


were not in total agreement with
the sheriff. While they don't dis-
agree that the area is in need of
more deputies, the method of
reaching that goal remains a more
problematic proposition.
Sheriff Lee proposed a contract
that would provide more deputies,
but that solution requires Montura
land owners to pay for the increase
in patrol. With no formal govern-
ment established in the area, that
burden would have to be absorbed
by the water district board.
Several members said at the


meeting that funds paid to the
district are only used to pay for
roads, water drainage and the
maintenance of the clubhouse
facility where meetings are
held.
Some of the commissioners
said the district should not have to
bear the burden of taxing its resi-
dents more or of using current
funds, to pay for a service that is
so sorely needed in Montura.

Look at area



hospital and



past decades


By Nicole Cuny
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Hendry
Regional Medical Center has
been serving the Clewiston
public for over 50 years.
HRMC has made much
progress since their doors first
opened.
Starting out was not as
hard as the staff thought
because everyone welcomed
them into the community.
It all started in the 1970s.
The biggest event of the
70s, unfortunately, didn't
come until September of
1979. After being born on a
Saturday afternoon at HRMC,


Patricia Tapia, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Pedro Tapia, was
found to have incompatible
blood and needed a complete
exchange of blood. Her criti-
cal situation required the Air
Force to fly the infant to
Tampa. Nurse Ellie Hough,
supervisor of obstetrics and
nursery accompanied the
infant Patricia on the helicop-
ter ride to Tampa General Hos-
pital.
The 1990s came in with a
bang. From the very beginning
of the decade, HRMC was stir-
ring. The center planted four
Palatka hollies, four small live

Montura hopes

popular vote

CLEWISTON Montura
residents, hoping to have
more say in the processes of
the Central County Water Con-
trol District (CCWCD) had, by
an overwhelming 3 to 1 refer-
endum vote, said they wanted
to depart from the one vote
per acre or fraction of an acre,
method set down by Florida
Statute 189.4051, the law that
governs special districts like


the CCWCD.
By law, this could only be
done if Montura has sufficient
population to reclassify it as
an "urban area" as defined by
law. The areas classified as
"urban" can have a board
member elected by popular
vote.
The feeling among resi-
dents was that the current
method favored those who

HRMC votes to


lower its millage


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
Regional Medical Center
(HRMC) board of authority
held its final public meeting'
Thursday evening Sept. 28 to
discuss lowering the hospital's
tax rate.
The millage rate was low-
ered from 3.1 mills to 3.0,
which represents approxi-
mately $270,000.
Considering the concerns of
the community and hearing
residents voice their concerns
on the proposed tax mill, the
board decided rather than
entertaining the possibility of
keeping the rate the same or
implementing an increase it
would lower the millage rate.
Hospital officials say the
decreases could potentially


continue in the future.
"The hospital taxes were
already planned by the board
to be lowered, since the board
had proposed to have the rate
remain the same as last years,
which was 3.1," said hospital
marketing director Glenda Wil-
son.
The board reviewed the
numbers and made the final
determination based on the
improvement of the facility's
financial performance, accord-
ing to Ms. Wilson.
"It will continue to be low-
ered every year," Ms. Wilson,
noting the hospital's perform-
ance this year, said.
Every year, the hospital
board looks at current funding
sourcess and decides whether
o? not an increase is warrant-

He was born in Holley, and
had lived all of his adult life in
Pahokee where he met and mar-
ried his wife, Carolyn Hickerson.
Sunday, Oct. 8, would have
marked their 51st anniversary.
An avid outdoorsman, his
love of nature and wildlife con-
tinued throughout his lifetime.
He shared this passion with
many as well as being a char-
tered leader of the Pahokee
Wildlife Boys and assisting with
scouting. As a longtime volun-
teer fireman of 22 years for the
city of Pahokee, he will be
remembered by many and
missed dearly by his church fam-
ily of the First United Methodist
Church.

daughters, Lisa (Terry) Adams of
Pahokee, Jennifer (John)

nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Finally, he leaves his constant
companion, his beloved dog
Shiloh.
The memory of his final years
would not be complete without
mentioning third floor west at
Palm Beach Gardens Hospital.
The nurses and staff made all of
his stats over the years more
bearable. With each arrival he
was warmly greeted with "Hey,
look who's here, it's Charles."
Most special to him was his car-
diologist, Dr. Predrag Knez. He
saw him through so many med-
ical miracles over the years and
was always there day and night,
just a phone call away with help.
He was truly blessed by this
extraordinary physician; and his
family will always remember his
kindness.
Also, the dedicated nurses
and doctors of the ICU trauma
unit at St. Mary's and Hospice of
Palm Beach County who cared
for him during his final days and
treated his family with such
compassion and kindness.
Visitation was held on Mon-
day, Oct. 9, from 6 until 8 p.m. at

If the Shoe Fits to play


this month in LaBelle


"If the Shoe Fits" a madcap
comedy will play at the Fire-
house Cultural Center in LaBelle
in October. The play was written
by Matt Chiorini, Matt Thomp-
son and Dana Vermette and is
directed by Mike Shough.
It all starts when Delores
(Brittany Marie) an unhappy
housewife, and George (Axl
Jones), a shoe salesman, meet at
Shoe Fantasy, love at first shoe-
fitting. The only thing standing in
the way is Delores' doting but
half-witted husband, Marvin
(Michael Gatch), who would
never agree to a divorce. There is
only one thing to do kill Marvin
so they can run off together and
live a carefree life of passion and
romance in a tropical paradise.
The lovers come up with a
crazy plan over dinner to poison
Marvin. This simple, foolproof


murder turns into a hilarious
fiasco when Esperanza (Mer-
cedes Mitchell), the Spanish-
speaking maid, arrives on the
wrong day and she, too, falls for
George.
Delores and
George's attempts get funnier
and funnier as the lovers try
again and again to finish the job
only to have Esperanza and Mar-
vin unknowingly foil their plans
each time resulting in this
wacky tale of love, murder, and
....SHOES!!
On Friday and Saturdays,
October 20, 21 and then October
27, 28 at 7 p.m.
And on Sundays, October 22
and 29 @ 2 p.m.
Firehouse Cultural Center,

CREW awarded grant for Safe Home project


HENDRY AND GLADES
COUNTIES -"CREW, Inc. has
been awarded a $208,000 grant
by the State of Florida's Depart-
ment of Financial Services to
administer the My Safe Florida
Home hurricane mitigation pro-
gram designed to help fortify
low-income Hendry and Glades
County homes.
The Volunteer Florida Foun-
dation, which manages the
Florida Hurricane Relief Fund
and the My Safe Florida Home
program for low-income home-
owners, chose CREW, Inc. to
provide hurricane mitigation
grants to homeowners who earn
no more than 80 percent of the
Annual Median Income (AMI).
In (Hendry and Glades coun-
ties), 80 percent of the AMI for a
family of four is $31,000. Homes
to receive mitigation services
must be site-built, single-family
homes with insurance coverage
under $500,000 and have a
homestead exemption.


CREW, Inc. seeks to serve 100
homeowners, who will receive
free home inspections to deter-
mine what improvements can
be made to strengthen their
homes against hurricanes. Fol-
lowing the inspections, home-
owners will receive assistance to
make recommended improve-
ments. As part of this non-profit
initiative, C.R.E.W., Inc. will
leverage donations of labor
through volunteers, contractor
services, and cash and building
materials.
Trish Adams, LCSW, CREW
Executive Director and Long
Term Recovery Coordinator for
United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades County stated that; "We
are pleased to be able to help
people prepare and fortify their
homes against future damage,
while still trying to help resi-
dents recover from Wilma. Our
hope is that by helping people
harden their homes that if
another storm like Wilma affects


our area, there will not be as
much damage."
Homeowners who qualify
can receive funds to complete
mitigation upgrades such as:
improving the strength of roof
deck attachments, creating a
secondary water barrier to pre-
vent water intrusion, improving
the survivability of roof cover-
ing, bracing gable-ended roof
framing, reinforcing roof-to-
wall connections, upgrading
exterior wall openings, such as
hurricane shutters, and upgrad-
ing exterior doors, such as
garage doors.
"Our partnership with CREW,
Inc. will enable us to leverage
resources to better protect
another 100 homeowners from
hurricanes and the catastrophic
losses they inflict," said Tom Gal-
lagher, Chief Financial Officer of
the State of Florida. Gallagher
oversees the My Safe Florida
Home program.
On a statewide basis, 12 non-


profit organizations have part-
nered with My Safe Florida
Home and Volunteer Florida
Foundation to serve more than
4,000 low-income Floridians liv-
ing in Broward, Escambia,
Glades, Hendry, Miami-Dade,
Osceola, Palm Beach, Pinellas,
Polk and St. Lucie counties. My
Safe Florida Home is matching
$8.1 million with the resources
of these 12 organizations.
"We applaud the volunteers
and community organizations,
which will join us in our impor-
tant work to help low-income
residents strengthen their
homes," said Liza McFadden,
president of the Volunteer Flori-
da Foundation, which manages
the Florida Hurricane Relief
Fund. "We are honored to
expand our role to include miti-
gation work with the Depart-
ment of Financial Services and
our non-profit partners in target-
ed communities."

Letter to the Editor


Trust the voters
As Floridians, our lives have
been profoundly influenced by citi-
zens taking initiative to amend
Florida's Constitution. Citizens
have limited political terms, man-
dated smaller
classrooms,
banned smok-
ing in public
places, required
universal pre-K,
limited property
tax increases,
required gov-
ernment in the
sunshine, and Bill
capped state Sublette
taxes. All were
issues that Tallahassee politicians
refused to address.
Those same lobbyists and spe-
cial interests which block popular
measures in Tallahassee now want
to make it harder for the people to
petition for changes in the law.
They want to require a super-
majority vote of 60 percent for the
people to amend the Constitution.
Their effort, Amendment 3 on this
year's ballot, is nothing more than
a naked power grab by the special
interests which dominate Tallahas-
see's legislative halls.
The citizen's initiative process is
already extremely difficult, but it is
fair and the only recourse the peo-
ple have when Tallahassee's spe-
cial interests block popular issues. I
know this from personal experi-
ence. I served in the Legislature for
eight years. I watched tobacco
companies bury bills banning
smoking in restaurants and work-
places. I saw legislation for smaller
classrooms get killed in backroom
deals. I know the hostility of most
legislators to term limits. I've wit-
nessed big business crush efforts to
raise the minimum wage. I've seen
how many elected representatives
dislike having to govern in the sun-
shine. I've heard the government


arguments against capping home-
owner's property taxes. None of
these popular initiatives would
have become law if left to the Flori-
da Legislature. Each took an impas-
sioned group of citizens petitioning
their cause onto the ballot to get
their issue decided by the voters.
Amendment 3's supporters
argue that they are simply raising
the bar without taking away the
people's right to decide. Under
their logic, Save Our Homes, Uni-
versal Pre-K, and caps on the
amount of taxes the Legislature can
raise would have never become
law, because each passed by a sim-
ple majority vote of the people, not
by a super-majority vote Amend-
ment 3 requires. The very Constitu-
tion we live under today passed in
1968 by 55 percent. If the special
interests behind Amendment 3
succeed, Florida will behe only
state to require a super-majority
vote for citizen initiatives.
Amendment 3 is nothing more
than a thinly veiled insult to the vot-
ers of Florida. It sends the message
that the majority of Floridians don't
know what is best for their state,
and that a minority of voters should
be allowed to block what the
majoritywants as law.
Floridians have a simple
choice on Nov. 7. They can either
vote to trust the politicians, lob-
byists, and special interests by
voting for Amendment 3, or they
can vote to trust the people by
voting against Amendment 3. I
say trust the people.
Bill Sublette is a former Republi-
can member of the Florida House
of Representatives. He is Chairman
of No Casinos, Inc. He is co-chair of
Trust the Voters (www.trustthevot-
ers.org), with former Democratic
U.S. Senator Bob Graham, and L.

ney who is chairman of the James

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore
Greetings! We have a lot to
cover this week so we might as
well get started. We have decided
to not hold the Arts and Crafts festi-
val this year due to lack of time and
participation. We knew this was a
possibility when we took over the
project but thought we would take
a shot anyway. We had less than a
month to make contact with every-
one and put the plan together. We
had interest from a few people but
when you are looking to re-launch
a festival that has been gone a few
years, I think you have to do it with
all your time, effort, and commit-
ment. We did not want to just
throw something together for the
sake of having a festival. I am
always reminded of a line from the
movie, "A League of Their Own,"
starring Tom Hanks, "Anything
worth doing is worth doing right."
We did not feel that we would
be doing right by the crafters, the


committee, or the town if we had
attempted to hold the festival this
year, so we have put it on hold. We
fully intend to start a full blitz after
the first of the year to promote a
festival NEXT October and we
hope to see many of you there.
Canceling the arts and crafts fes-
tival has allowed us to partner up
with the City of Clewiston and the
Clewiston Police Department to
work on the Halloween festival for
kids. We are hoping for a big suc-
cess like we saw with the 4th of
July activities but once again we
need your help to make that hap-
pen. You can contact us here at the
Chamber of Commerce or Angie
Kelley at the youth center if you are
interested in taking part in any of
the games or activities. If you want
to host your own game or have
your own booth that would be
even better. If a business or organi-
zation is interested in sponsoring a
portion of the Halloween event,
you can contact the same people


mentioned above. One thing I
would like to point out, the Pump-
kin Carving Contest is open to both
kids and adults. I will probably
write more about this next week,
but there are cash prizes to be
awarded that could by an awful lot
of extra Halloween candy!
We got a new phone system
installed at our offices last week. It
is a pretty hi-tech system complete
with voicemail, intercom, and a
book of instructions that is thicker
than the one that came with my
car. We want to thank Collier Busi-
ness Systems for donating the sys-
tem to us. That's right; they gave us
the system for free, installed it, and
trained us on it. We are very appre-
ciative to them for bringing us into
the 21st century. If you happen to
call and we hang up on you acci-
dentally, we do apologize, but like I
said- that book is very long!
Finally today, I wanted to call
attention to a business publicly if
you will allow me. The staff and


owners of the Hungry Howie's
restaurant have really made an
impression on our community.
They are one of the nicest, most
giving groups of people that I have
ever come across. Since they
opened, they have given so many
free pizza gift certificates to differ-
ent events and activities that I have
since lost count. They sell pizza
very reasonably priced to the ath-
letic programs at Clewiston High
School which allows them to sell it
at games and use it at a fund raiser
for the program. They have been
active participants in all city events
including the 4th of July decorating
contest, a contest that they won. I
hope that as a community others
are taking notice of this and will
stop in to say thank you from time
to time to everyone there. I
thanked Cliff (the guy in the black
cowboy hat) last week and the
next time I am in there getting
pizza, I will do so again...between
bites of course! See you next week!

izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Introducting our

Wednesday Night


Steak Night

Come In & Bring

A Hearty Appetite!


It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt.This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.

For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 460.
Patient must pay cash, check or charge at the time of mammogram.


Take a closer look at Glades General Hospital...
you'll be impressed by what you see.

Lolly Bleu was a squatter near Venus


Edited by MaryAnn
Morris/INI
People who remember the
Great Depression may recall that to
help get the country back to work,
the federal government adopted an
"activist posture" and sponsored
work projects from dam building
to tree planting to help provide
employment to all manner of
workers in the floundering U.S.
economy of the 1930s.
The Civilian Conservation
Corps planted trees where over
logging had stripped the forests
and built structures and roads in
public parks, like Highlands Ham-
mock State Park up in Sebring.
Another government sponsored
work project was the Federal
Writer's Project.
The Federal Writer's Project
employed over 10,000 people in
the course of its existence, among
them two writers that we know of
in the lake area, Mrs. Robert Eures
and Mrs. Texas Morgan. Both
wrote from the Venus area of
Glades County. Mrs. Morgan inter-
viewed a woman named Lolly
Bleu on Nov. 28, 1938. Many of the
people interviewed for our "Recol-
lections" series had hard times,
too. But Lolly Bleu is identified as a
Florida "squatter." A squatter is so
called because they neither own
nor rent the land upon which they
live. The interview begins:
"Lolly did not meet me at the
door when I knocked, but in
response to a low, gentle, 'Come in
please,' I entered the large front
room of the dwelling. She was sit-
ting in a log rocking chair of the
porch typed, holding upon her lap
a child whom she was carefully
feeding. She was neat and clean
and her hair was smoothly
brushed. Her dress was old and
faded, but clean.
"Lolly said that her family
came from Texas to Florida about
18 years ago. Both she and her
husband 'Pa' as she called him,


Submitted photo/Library of Congress/Marion
This was a hotel, general merchandise and gas
ness in the town of Venus, perhaps the very store
Bleu sold her canned goods. Mrs. Bleu was inte
November, 1938. The photo was taken some t\
later in January, 1939.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


were born in Texas down on the
Gulf coast. (It says she is 50 years
old and her husband 67.)," Mrs.
Morgan wrote.
"I know I look older for I'm so
thin and my hair is grey," Lolly said.
"But I've had a hard life and had so
many children. I am not yet quite
fifty but will be soon. I have two
grown sons married and livin'
away from home besides these 11
children here. One of my girls, Dee
is down on the Lake working' in a
caf6. I never thought of trying' to
limit my family.
"But I started to tell you about
our farmin' in Texas. Both me and
Pa were raised on farms, though
his Pa had a larger one and a citrus
and ornamental nursery. Pa


learned the nursery b

Crist announces lawsuit against Alltel


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist has sued
one of the nation's largest wire-
less companies, alleging that All-
tel Communications, Inc., auto-
matically enrolled thousands of
customers for a free trial of a
roadside assistance program
without disclosing terms of the
program at the time of activation
and billing customers without
their specific consent.
Mr. Crist alleges that Alltel also
billed some customers for the
Mr. Rescue program during All-
tel's advertised free trial period.
An investigation that began
with consumer complaints in
April 2003 revealed that the com-
pany pushed its roadside assis-
tance program by automatically
enrolling every consumer who
purchased a cell phone and serv-
ice plan. The program was added
to service plans by default unless
a sales representative removed it
at the customers request. Alltel's
sales representatives were under
pressure to sell additional fea-
tures of calling plans in order to
meet monthly quotas and gener-
ate commissions, so little care


was taken to adequately inform
customers about what they were
purchasing.
Many consumers who were
automatically enrolled in the free
trial found three dollar charges
added to their monthly state-
ments from that period. Others
were not told they had to cancel
the program prior to the free trial
running out and were billed for
months after the trial period
ended. More than 520,000 Flori-
da consumers were enrolled in
Mr. Rescue, over the past five
years and investigators estimate
that Alltel made more than $20
million from the program during
that time period. It has not yet
been determined what portion
of those consumers were signed
up improperly.
This case is a classic example
of stealth charges intended to
claim every possible dollar from
their customers, said Mr. Crist.
This is wrong and will not be tol-
erated.
The lawsuit alleges that Alltel
not only failed to disclose the
terms and conditions of the Mr.
Rescue program, it also failed to


obtain authorization from con-
sumers when enrolling them in
the program.
Mr. Crist encouraged Alltel
customers to examine their bills
carefully to see if they have been
or are now being billed for the
service without their knowledge.
Consumers who may have been
signed up for Mr. Rescue without
knowing or authorizing it, who
received the feature after reject-
ing it or who were charged for
Mr. Rescue during the free trial
period should contact the Attor-
ney General's Office by calling
the fraud hotline at 1-888-9-NO-
SCAM (1-866-966-7226).
The Plantation-based compa-
ny is being sued under the Flori-
da Deceptive and Unfair Trade
Practices Act. Penalties for viola-
tions of the act include fines of
$10,000 per violation or $15,000
if the victim is a senior citizen or
is disabled.

Are bees near you 'buzzing' you? nwiai nJcm

Collier County's Commercial
Landscape Horticulture Agent
really bugs me and a lot of
other folks across Southern
Florida. Doug Caldwell is an
expert on urban entomology
and asked me if I have been
dive-bombed by large bees
recently.
I suggested that an article
about the large carpenter bees
would be in order. Because
these featured creatures can be
found throughout Florida, it may
be useful to get to know how
they are different from their
Northern cousins, which are
much more of a problem. Hope
you enjoy reading Doug's col-
umn.
As I was walking past my out-
of-control, ten-foot tall Alaman-
da 'Cherries Jubilee' shrub, a
bumble bee-like creature got my
attention. Flying a few feet
above my head, he zoomed and
darted, intimidated. The carpen-
ter bee males buzzed with flying
skills that reminded me of one of
those X-wing fighter planes,
piloted by a Star Wars Jedi pilot.
Will it fire miniature, long-range
laser cannons or use its proton
torpedo launchers to zap me?
Will other "fighter planes" join
in to investigate the intruders?
But, in fact, if one watches close-
ly, these yellow-fuzzed face
insects are also chasing one
another. It turns out that they are
territorial and protecting their
particular section of the hedge
from competing males.
According to the University of
Florida featured creatures article,
large carpenter bees resemble
bumble bees in shape and size
and somewhat in color, being
black, metallic bluish or green-
ish-black, or purplish blue. Males
have yellowish areas on the face.
Both sexes may have pale or yel-
lowish fuzz on the thorax, legs,
or abdomen, but these hairs are
not as abundant, nor as intensely
colored as with bumble bees.
Large carpenter bees are readily

An example is the amount of
money that is spent to provide
healthcare to indigents and

oaks, and one pygmy palm in the
garden.
The Elks Lodge raised money
for the hospital to purchase a
Module I Pulse Oximeter to be
used in the Critical Care Unit.
The center also acquired a new
All-Purpose Chair that converted
to a stretcherwhen necessary.
The 1993 Sugar Festival was
dedicated to Dr. Forbes for his
service and devotion to HRMC.
The hospital installed a "TTY"
phone for hearing impaired peo-
ple in 1995. This year was very
exciting for a HRMC Registered
Nurse. Garry Orrock was vaca-
tioning and met a very interest-
ing person: Mother Teresa!
One very lucky girl, Laura
Beth Davies, received a scholar-
ship from HRMC that allowed
her to attend the University of
Florida Medical School.
In "Letter to the Editor" in the
Clewiston News, the hospital
was praised by Earlene Payne.
Ms. Payne wrote, "I would like to
say we do need our hospital. If it
hadn't been there for the emer-
gency surgery I needed, I don't

distinguished from bumble bees
primarily by the absence of fuzz
on the topside of the abdomen,
which makes it appear some-

The species buzzing me goes
by the name Xylocopa micans.
Little is known about its biology.
Fortunately, it does not attack
soffit areas or untreated cedar or
pine boards on homes. A north-
ern species has this reputation
of causing structural damage to
homes. The females of this pest

A Choose-to-Loose 10-week
diet and exercise program was
eventually established. In 1999,
hypnosis was added to the pro-
gram. Hypnosis, approved by
the American Medical Associa-
tion in 1951, helped to change
the eating habits of people in the
program.
Hypnosis was also used dur-
ing sessions called "Nicotine
.Anonymous" that helped people
stop smoking.
The American Cancer Associ-
ation held a walk/run benefit,
"Making Strides against Cancer."
The benefit was in memory of
Warren Howell, Carmela Griffen,
Johnathon Chue, David Ander-
son, and Adalberto Diaz. The
benefit raised over $8,000 for
HRMC andACA.
As the new century came in,
the hospital was facing a blood
shortage. Blood drives were
established and people came
forth to donate.
The past few decades have
proved to be very eventful at the
hospital. HRMC has improved its
status within the community and
has made many technological
advancements.

entrances were about three feet
above the ground, but entrances
in other twigs were as low as six
inches. The precisely drilled
entrance hole is about one-third
inch in diameter.
So why are these buzzers
around my Alamanda? They are
most likely using dead canes or
branches of the Alamanda or the
nearby Viburnum as a home for
the next generation of "X-wing
fighter" carpenter bees.
If annoyance problems arise
from the activity of these pollen

insecticide can be used. Be sure
that is labeled for bees and
wasps: this can be a dust, wet-

Based on that information, there
was not enough population den-

However, since 50 percent of
the area was urban, one board

We've all been shocked by the
events several weeks ago in which
a school girl was killed in Colorado,
a principal was

My first reaction

seems that we John

On Wednesday, Sept. 27, Duane
Morrison, 53, walked into Platte
Canyon High School in Bailey, Col-

a classroom, some of whom he
assaulted sexually. He eventually
released four of them, but when
police stormed the room in a res-
cue attempt, Morrison shot 16-


year-old Emily Keyes to death and
then killed himself. Morrison had
no known connection with any of
the hostages or the victim.

Weston High School in Cazenovia,
Wis., was arrested after shooting to
death the school's principal, John
Klang. Eric Hainstock had pried
open his family's gun cabinet to
obtain two guns which he then
took to the school. Adults in the
building managed to wrestle the
shotgun away from him, but he
broke free and killed Principal
Klang with a handgun. Investiga-
tors said Hainstock told them he
just wanted someone to listen to
his complaints about being tor-
mented by classmates. But accord-
ing to his special education teacher,
Eric Hainstock was the one who
picked on others. He has been
charged as an adult with murder.
On Monday, Oct. 2, Charles Carl
Roberts, 32, walked heavily armed
into an Amish schoolhouse in Nick-
el Mines, Pa., sent the adults and
boys out, and then tied up 10 young


girls. When police arrived, he sys-
tematically executed five of them
and badly injured five others before
killing himself. The gunman was a
father of three who called his wife to
say he was exacting revenge for
something that happened 20 years
ago, but his motivation is not fully
understood. He had no known
problem with the Amish and appar-
ently selected the school because it
was an unguarded target.
Since the beginning of the cur-
rent school year, there have been
25 shootings at or near schools
nationwide, with seven of them
resulting in fatalities.
In the midst of these messes
and the messes we face each day, I
would like to suggest some things
we might do, well to forget and
some things we would do well to
remember.
First, forget thinking that hold-
ing on to a grudge has any redeem-
ing value. It doesn't. Grudges are
destructive. Revenge is not sweet;
it's sour. Most of the time grudges
and revenge detrimentally affect
the holder. God said, "Vengeance is


mine, I will repay." Imagine the
peace we can have in our lives if we
can place and leave our situations
in God's hands!
Second, remember that forgive-
ness works and goodness
abounds. Forgiving someone
might not change their lives, but it
will certainly make our days
brighter, and we need brighter
days. We are surrounded and
sometimes overwhelmed by
unpleasant news. Listening to
some of the headline news stories
and some of the political commer-
cials, you would have the impres-
sion that evil is on the rampage and
is about to take over the world.
We need to keep being remind-
ed that there is a great deal of good
happening in the world. Look
around! And when troubles do
come our way, and they will,
remember what Jesus said in John
16:33: "I have told you these things,
so that in me you may have peace.
In this world you will have trouble.
But take heart! I have overcome the
world." In Christ, we too, can over-
come and not just have life, but life
abundantly!


Visitors bring a chance to reflect on scriptures


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
It was Benjamin Franklin who
said, "Fish and visitors both stink
after three days." He was known
for his wisdom and inventions;
bifocals and toves, and other practi-
cal things for the household. He
could have gotten himself killed
with his kite-in-the-lightning experi-
ment, but apparently God had
other things in store for him to do.
His reflections on visitors, though,
didn't reflect on his having good
friends. He was a better judge of
fish than of visitors. I suspect he
was often in his own orbit; invent-
ing and discovering, printing, trav-
eling, working out problems that
could be solved. Like many great
people, when it came to dealing
with others, he could have had a
difficult time. That's a great contrast
to visitors in the Bible.
It seems that Mary visited with
Elizabeth for three months before
the birth of Jesus (Luke 1:56), Paul
and Barnabas spent a year visiting
Antioch (Acts 11:26), Paul also
spent a year and a half at Corinth


(Acts 18:11) and James suggests to
go somewhere for a year to try and
see how business will be-give it a
year (James ww ., i\
4:13). In those .-/ ,
days, they did-
n't seem as
concerned .I .
about time or
their hosts.
Apparently,
they didn't give
any thought to SamuelS.
being inconsid- Thomas
rate guests.
We don't hear about Jesus hurry-
ing from place to place. He comes,
He visits. He accomplishes what is
needed then, He moves on. We
who live in a world of time shares,
nanoseconds and when dial-up is
regarded as being slow might won-
der about what it must have been
like. Perhaps we've lost the gift of
hospitality; perhaps we've lost the
gift of sharing who we are and
learning about others.
I think children are masters at
"visiting" with us. They come from
God, then spend a few years as
"guests" in our lives and they have
an uncanny way of captivating us as


they take our time. They can (and
usually do) talk about anything and
aren't particularly uncomfortable
when there are things they don't
understand. I like to think of those
children (pets included) who have
come into my life as "visitors from
God." We certainly don't own them.
I do my best to be a good influence,
try to understand, to give them
space to grow and to set limits
when needed, make arrangements
for their "stay" with me and consid-
er that they will be with me for
some time to come. They have an
uncanny way of adjusting, fitting
into schedules, making their pres-
ence known and understanding
me-at least well enough to "push
my buttons" some of the time.
Every now and again, I get a
glimpse of something God-like,
something holy in my "visitors."
The fleeting sight of God comes
when there is that mutual invest-
ment in each other of our time,
attention, sharing, telling, listening,
being with each other. It is the child
who teaches the parent how to be
a parent and the parent that opens
up whole new worlds to the child.
Some of the best times I have spent
with people have been when there


is no agenda or no set reason for
being with them. We find ourselves
sharing hour after hour about our-
selves and what's really on our
minds and hearts.
That can go on for hours and
hours; days and days when there is
nothing to interfere and the visits
are good ones. I guess that is what
went on with Mary and Elizabeth
for three months, and with Paul for
year.
People opened up to each other
and with it all came the image of
God. Time no longer ruled things,
nobody was in a hurry. It was all in
seeing and sharing, being oneself
and listening to others be them-
selves, then seeing the image of
God in His creations. To think
about it, I communicate with God
in that way too. That's why He visit-
ed and visits, and why He's wel-
come. I try to make those visits
two-way exchanges too, in depth
and from the heart. Time goes on,
and when I work at it; I see that
image of God too. "Whenever two
or three are gathered...." and I wel-
come others so that He is there
every time we gather.

Beetle used to combat invasive Tropical Soda Apple plants


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the suc-
cessful results of an ongoing bio-
logical control program for Tropi-
cal Soda Apple (TSA), an invasive
plant that has overtaken much of
Florida's natural areas and pas-
turelands. This program is a coop-
erative effort between the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services (FDACS), the
United States Department of Agri-
culture (USDA), and the Universi-
ty of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (UF-
IFAS), and involves rearing and
releasing a leaf-eating beetle, as
well as evaluating other methods
for controlling TSA.
Tropical soda apple (TSA), an
exotic noxious weed native to
Brazil and Argentina, has already
caused great economic damage to


"I am very encouraged by the success of this bio-
control program. TSA has been a serious pest to
the cattle industry and Florida's land managers
for many years. Finding solutions to pest prob-
lems that are environmentally friendly is an
important part of the Department's mission."
Charles H. Bronson,
Florida Agriculture Commissioner


Florida where it has spread to over
a million acres, and the majority of
Florida counties. TSA is a tall, prick-
ly plant with white flowers and golf
ball size fruit whose mottled skin
resembles a watermelon. It dis-
places native plants and is found in
hammocks, ditches, groves and
vegetable fields. It is a serious prob-
lem for ranchers because it quickly


covers entire pastures, and cows
will eat the TSA fruit, but not the
plant. Cattle, one of the main vec-
tors of TSA, spread the seeds from
the fruit through their digestive sys-
tems to new areas.
"I am very encouraged by the
success of this bio-control pro-
gram," said Commissioner Bron-
son. "TSA has been a serious pest


to the cattle industry and Florida's
land managers for many years.
Finding solutions to pest problems
that are environmentally friendly is
an important part of the Depart-
ment's mission," Bronson added.
Since the initial release in 2003
of the South American leaf-feeding
beetle, Gratiana boliviana, UF-IFAS
and the USDA have maintained
facilities in Florida to rear and
release the beetle. In September
2005, FDACS, funded by a grant
from the USDA, added to the pro-
duction effort by establishing two
screen houses at the Ft. Pierce
Farmer's Market in southeast Flori-
da for rearing and distribution of
Gratiana boliviana.
The first release from this facility
was conducted in May 2006. Since
then, over 16,400 beetles have
been released in four counties -
Hillsborough, Okeechobee, St.


Lucie and Martin. These releases
were conducted on a variety of
TSA-affected properties including
ranches, conservation lands and
residential areas. Eight weeks after
release, many areas have active
beetle populations that have
moved beyond the initial release
sites. The Ft. Pierce operation
increases the number of beetles
available for release throughout
Florida, including the possibility of
fulfilling requests from interested
individuals to release the insects on
their TSA-infected properties.
The leaf-feeding beetle, which is
host specific to TSA, damages the
plant extensively, stops fruit/seed
production, and weakens the plant
so other diseases can easily infect
tropical soda apple. Biological con-
trol is a cost effective way to man-
age TSA in natural habitats that are
not easily accessible by other man-


agement methods. The beetle will
spread from its original release site,
allowing for large coverage areas.
Beetles have been found up to 10
miles from their release site.
The bio-control program is one
tool used in an effort to control
TSA. The current primary treat-
ment options for controlling TSA
include herbicide application and
mowing the plants before they
produce fruit. Other ongoing
research activities include studying
additional leaf-eating beetle
species, plant viruses that attack
TSA, and a bio-herbicide that kills
the invasive plant.
Ifyou would like additional infor-
mation about tropical soda apple,
the leaf-eating beetle, or if you are
interested in participating in the
release program, please contact the
DPI helpline at (888)397-1517 or

Tiger Darris Hughes breaks loose on a sweep. Sim Putnam catches a pass enroute to 23 yard touchdown.


Clewston Tigers wallop the Bishop Verot Vikings


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers rolled
past a rebuilding Bishop Verot
team 42-3 in a non-district match
up at Clewiston's Cane Field last
Friday night. The outcome of the
game was never in doubt as the
Tigers sported a 28-0 halftime
lead. However, the Tigers were
clearly not focused on offense
and committed too many
unforced errors against a weak
opponent. Quarterback Jared
Combass saw at least four per-
fectly thrown passes dropped by
open receivers and incurred inter-
ceptions when Tiger receivers did
not react to the ball.
The Tigers took the opening
kickoff and marched 80 yards on
10 plays, scoring midway in the
period on tailback Darris Hughes'
3-yard run. Kicker Will Davis
nailed the point after, his first of
six on the night. Early in the sec-
ond period, Combass hooked for
a 52-yard completion with wide-
out Omar Smith at the Viking 2
and Hughes scored from there on
a smash into the line. The Vikings
attempted a pass on a fake punt
and turned the ball over to the
Tigers at their own 40. After a 14
yard run by tailback Collin Rick-
etts, Combass then rifled a 28-
yard pass to wideout Jasper


Omar Smith pulls in a 52 yard pass from Jared Combass.


Hunter on a post pattern for a
touchdown with 5:44 left on the
halftime clock. The Tigers got the
ball back on a fumble recovery
near midfield with less than a
minute left in the half. Linebacker
Lance Newton caused the fumble
with a bone jarring tackle and
defensive end Johnny Jones fell
on the ball. Five snaps later, Com-
bass fired a bullet to wideout Sim
Putnamnoye the middle and he
I .,..


raced into the end zone for a 23-
yard score. Putnam had caught an
18-yard pass to set up the score.
The Tigers mostly went
through the motions for the rest
of the game, freely substituting.
They scored with 1:49 left in the
third period on a 5 yard run by
tailback Reggie Gray. Ricketts had
moved the ball into scoring posi-
tion with a nifty 33-yard dash.
Their final touchdown game


with 8:13 left in the game on a 3-
yard sweep by Ricketts.
The Vikings, who were out-
matched but played hard all night,
scored midway in the third period
when kicker Butch Moore nailed
a 34-yard field goal. The Tigers
countered with another touch-
down when reserve tailback Reg-
gie Gray skirted the right end for 5
yards. Clewiston's last score came
in the final period on a 3-yard
sweep by tailback Collin Ricketts.
The Tigers played without sen-
ior tailback Jamal Hubert who did
not dress due to disciplinary rea-
sons. Hubert, who prior to this
game was on a glide path to
eclipse Clewiston's all-time sea-
son rushing record, was not really
missed as the Tigers amassed 326
yards from the tailback position.
Ricketts delivered 142
yards rushing and Hughes
added 141 on 14 carries each.
Reggie Gray also rushed for 43
yards on five attempts from the
tailback position.
The Tigers advanced to 6-0 (1-
0 in district play) but Coach Larry
Antonacci was clearly displeased
with the effort. He said, "We
played a very sloppy game and
had way too many penalties.
We've got guys who played as
individuals tonight and that's not
acceptable. We can't play football


like that against a better team and
win. We are going to have a busy
week in the coming week's prac-
tice."
The Tiger defense held Vikings
quarterback Butch Moore to 98
yards passing, which was consid-
erably below his season average
of 215 yards per game entering
the contest. Moore only complet-
ed 8 of 33 passes and was inter-
cepted twice, with picks by Sim
Putnam and John Melton. Also,
Viking runners were stopped with
only 52 yards rushing on 22 tries
for the night. Defensive end John-
ny Jones had another good night
with 4 solo tackles, a fumble
recovery, two blocked passes,
and quarterback sack. Defensive
end Delvin Hughes and line-
backer David Pope also had 4
tackles each and along with Jones
were in the Viking quarterback's
face all evening.
The Tigers will host Pope John
Paul this Friday night in a district
contest.

Voters consider constitutional Amendments


Part 1 in series
Editor's note: Florida voters
will be asked to decide on six
proposed amendments to the
Florida Constitution in Novem-
ber. Originally eight amend-
ments were proposed. Amend-
ment #2 (which dealt with term
limits) was withdrawn and
Amendment 5 (which proposed
a nonpartisan board to deter-
mine voting districts) was taken
off the ballot by the Florida
Supreme Court. This series of
articles on the proposed amend-
ments is designed to help our
readers better understand them
before going to the polls.
The following information
was provided by VoteSmart Flori-
da. VoteSmartFlorida.org is a
non-profit, non-partisan organi-
zation composed of more than 60
diverse groups including commu-
nity organizations, trade associa-
tions, chambers of commerce
and others. VoteSmartFlorida.org
is an affiliate of the Florida Cham-
ber of Commerce and is firmly
committed to providing Florida
voters unbiased, non-partisan
factual information on proposed
constitutional amendments and
the process by which they get on
the ballot.

PROPOSED
AMENDMENT 1:
Official Title: State Planning
and Budget Process
Official Ballot Summary:
Proposing amendments to the
State Constitution to limit the
amount of nonrecurring general
revenue which may be appropri-
ated for recurring purposes in any
fiscal year to 3 percent of the total
general revenue funds estimated
to be available, unless otherwise
approved by a three-fifths vote of
the Legislature; to establish a
Joint Legislative Budget Commis-
sion, which shall issue long-range
financial outlooks; to provide for
limited adjustments in the state
budget without the concurrence
of the full Legislature, as provided


by general law; to reduce the
number of times trust funds are
automatically terminated; to
require the preparation and bien-
nial revision of a long-range state
planning document; and to estab-
lish a Government Efficiency Task
Force and specify its duties.
Amendment Type: Legisla-
tive/Joint Resolution, this amend-
ment was placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature during the
2004 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate
and House by a 60% vote to be eli-
gible for the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature,
(2004 Session) This Amendment
was placed on the ballot via the
Legislature. It was required to
pass both the Senate and House
by a 60 percent vote.
Arguments
FOR: Today, the Legislative
Budget Commission has a variety
of functions regarding appropria-
tions. This amendment, would
establish a Joint Budget Commis-
sion and would do what has not
been done before put both the
budget and revenue estimates
together in one document. In
addition to the annual budget, it
will also require the Commission
to create a long-term financial
outlook.
AGAINST: Current general
law, which prescribes require-
ments for each department and
agency of state government to
submit a planning document and
supporting budget request, is
adequate and an additional task
force is not needed.
WhatYour Vote Means:
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #1 would establish
a long-range budget-planning
process, putting both budget and
revenue estimates together in one
document. It would create a Gov-
ernment Efficiency Task Force
(appointed every four years by
the Governor, Senate President
and Speaker of the House) to
seek input from the public, exec-
utive and judicial branches and
create a long-range financial plan.


NO If Amendment #1 is not
approved by voters, the current
laws as set by Section 19 of Article
III of the State Constitution will
remain in place as originally pro-
posed by the Taxation and Bud-
get Reform Commission and
approved by the voters in 1992.
Financial Impact: There is not
a direct financial impact on state
or local government.
Note: The Financial Impact
Estimating Conference is not
required to adopt and prepare
official financial impact state-
ments to accompany proposed
constitutional amendments
which are placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature.

AMENDMENT 3
Official Title: Requiring Broad-
er Public Support for Constitu-
tional Amendments or Revisions
Official Ballot Summary: Pro-
poses an amendment to Section 5
of Article XI of the State Constitu-
tion to require that any proposed
amendment to or revision of the
State Constitution, whether pro-
posed by the Legislature, by ini-
tiative, or by any other method,
must be approved by at least 60
percent of the voters of the state
voting on the measure, rather
than by a simple majority. This
proposed amendment would not
change the current requirement
that a proposed constitutional
amendment imposing a new
state tax or fee be approved by at
least 2/3 of the voters of the state
voting in the election in which
such. an amendment is consid-
ered.
Amendment Type: Legisla-
tive/Joint Resolution, this amend-
ment was placed on the ballot by
the Florida Legislature during the
2005 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate
and House by a 60% vote to be eli-
gible for the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
(2005 Session), Judiciary Com-
mittee
Known Proponents:
Florida Association of Realtors


Florida Chamber of Com-
merce
Florida Farm Bureau
Florida Institute of CPAs
Floridians for Better Trans-
portation
ProtectOurConstitution.org
Known Opponents:
ACORN
AFL-CIO
Common Cause
SaveVotersVoice.org
TrusttheVoters.org
This Amendment was placed
on the ballot via the Legislature. It
was required to pass both the
Senate and House by a 60 percent
vote.
Arguments
FOR: Florida's Constitution is
the easiest to amend in our
nation. In recent years, ballot ini-
tiatives have become a vehicle for
well-financed special interest
groups to protect their interests
via the state's most sacred docu-
ment. By implementing a higher
threshold for approval of consti-
tutional amendments, it broad-
ens consensus because a higher
percentage of Florida's electorate
will be required to pass the initia-
tive.
AGAINST: When issues are
not passed through the Legisla-
ture, the ballot initiative process is
critical to ensuring the peoples'
voices are still heard. The citizen
initiative process remains a vital
check on government when, for
whatever reasons, the govern-
ment refuses to act. Requiring a
higher percentage of the elec-
torate could diminish an initia-
tive's chances of being approved.
What Your Vote Means
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #3 would increase
the number of votes needed to
approve ballot initiatives from 50
percent +1 to 60 percent +1 of
those voting on the measure.
NO If Amendment #3 is not
approved by voters, the current
requirement of 50 percent +1
approval would remain in place.


VoteSmart Florida has online information


TALLAHASSEE Imagine
voters standing in line at the
polls asking each other if they
know anything about the pro-
posed constitutional amend-
ments they are about to vote on.
It happened right here in Florida
in 2004, and this year VoteSmart-
Florida.org is dedicated to get-
ting factual information to voters
before they head to the polls.
Unfortunately, the State of
Florida has not provided Flori-
da's 10.5 million registered vot-


ers with an official, state-spon-
sored voter guide to proposed
constitutional amendments. Vot-
ers now have a place to go to get
the facts before they vote.
"VoteSmartFlorida.org's 2006
Voter Guide to Proposed Consti-
tutional Amendments cuts
through the confusion and clut-
ter of proposed constitutional
amendments without recom-
mending to voters how they
should vote," said Sheri Vicari,
director of VoteSmartFlorida.org.


VoteSmartFlorida.org's non-
partisan 2006 Voter Guide to
Proposed Constitutional
-Amendments provides voters
with an easy-to-read overview to
what will be-.-o'*n the ballot,
including the ballot litle, ballot
summary, amendment type,
financial impacts, arguments -
who is for, against and more.
The 12-page Voter Guide is free
and available to download and
print at www.VoteSmartFlori-
da.org.


"Voters are smart and it is
important to provide Floridians
with the facts so they can decide
for themselves if these amend-
ments should or should not have
a permanent place in our state's
Constitution," Ms. Vicari said.
VoleSmartFlorida org's Voter
Guide is a comprehensive infor-
mational resource for the six
proposed constitutional amend-
ments voters will see on the Nov.
7 General Election ballot.

GAINESVILLE Enrollment
for the 2007 Direct and Counter-
cyclical Payment Program (DCP)
began this week and continues
through June 1, 2007,
announced Kevin L. Kelley, State
FSA Executive Director in Florida.
Farmers are encouraged to
sign up for the program through
the online DCP sign-up service
where they can choose payment
options, assign crop shares and
sign and submit their contracts
from any computer with Inter-
net access. DCP participants can
also view and print out submit-
ted contract options at any time
through the online process.
"Producers will find the Inter-
net-based DCP sign-up service
convenient and very user friend-
ly," said Mr. Kelley.
Agricultural producers can
also visit any USDA Service Cen-
ter or their administratively
assigned center, to complete
their 2007 DCP contract. Follow-
ing the June 1, 2007, deadline,

USDA will accept late applica-
tions through Sept. 30, 2007,
with a $100 late fee. While DCP
participants must sign DCP con-
tracts annually, producers can
choose not to participate in the
program in any given year.
The electronic DCP (or
eDCP) service saves producers
time, reduces paperwork and'
speeds up contract processing
at USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) offices. It is available to all
producers who are eligible to
participate in DCP and who
obtain eAuthentication
accounts. The service has strict
security measures to protect
participants' private informa-
tion. Only authorized federal
employees have access to infor-
mation producers submit elec-
tronically.
The electronic service is avail-
able by going to:
http://www.fsa.usda.gov/FSA/we
bapp?area= online&subject= lan
ding&topic=dcp on the Internet


and clicking on "Access eDCP
Service." To access the service,
producers must have an active
USDA eAuthentication Level 2
account, which requires filling
out an online registration form at
http://www.eauth.egov.usda.gov
followed by a visit to the local
USDA Service Center for identity
verification.
USDA computes DCP pay-
ments using base acres and pay-
ment yields established for each
farm. Direct payments provide
no incentive to increase produc-
tion of any certain crop, because
the payments are not based on
producers' current production
choices. Producers receive
direct. payments at rates estab-
lished by statute regardless of
market prices.
For 2007, eligible producers
may request to receive direct
advance payments based on 22
percent of the direct payment
rate for each commodity associ-
ated with the farm. USDA will


issue DCP direct advance pay-
ments beginning Dec. 1, 2006.
Counter-cyclical payments
provide support counter to the
cycle of market prices as part of
a "safety net" in the event of low
crop prices.
SThese payments are only
issued if the effective price for a
commodity (which takes into
account the direct payment rate,
market price and loan rate) is
below the target price for the
commodity. Counter-cyclical
payment rates vary depending on
market prices. In more than four
years since the 2002 Farm Bill
authorized DCP, the USDA has
issued approximately $30 billion
in DCP payments to America's
agricultural producers.
For more information on
DCP, a fact sheet may be viewed
