Suspects take ATM from bank


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON- Clewiston
Police Department is looking for
two suspects in connection with
the robbery of an ATM machine
at the Olde Cypress Community
Bank in Clewiston.
According to information pro-
vided by the police department,
the suspects may have used a
machine from a nearby construc-
tion site to pry the ATM from its
base and dump it in a truck
before leaving the area.
According to a police report,
the robbery occurred a little after
midnight on Oct. 27. Officers
were dispatched to an alarm alert
at Olde Cypress Bank on WC.


Owens Avenue.
While Officer Colburn was on
the way to the scene, he was
advised by the police dispatcher
that the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office was already in look out of a
white Ford pick-up truck with an
ATM on the bed of the truck.
Upon arrival to the scene, Offi-
cer Colburn noticed that the ATM
machine was missing from the
bank's drive through lane. Officer
Colburn also noticed that the
over hanging roof was damaged
and pieces of it were on the
ground.
At that same time, he saw
large a construction machine at
the parking lot in front of the bank
facing north, with its engine still
running and its bucket and boom


raised. The passenger door was
also open.
Witnesses who saw the rob-
bery identified the vehicle as a
white pick-up truck, possibly
being a Ford F-250 or Chevy truck.
Some of the witnesses said
they heard noises coming from
the direction of the bank. One
witness said he saw a white truck
parked on the dirt, across the
street of the bank with someone
inside apparently waiting while
the other suspect tore the ATM
machine from its location.
When the suspect pulled the
ATM machine out using the
machine, he allegedly waved in
the direction of the truck, calling

Sweep finds gun
and loaded

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
Two Hendry County high
school students were arrested
last week after the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office togeth-
er with the help of K-9 dogs
provided by the Collier County
Sheriff Office, performed a
routine sweep at the school.
When investigators con-


ducted the sweep, they dis-
covered a 9mm Ruger hand-
gun under the front seat and a
loaded 10 round magazine in
the center console of a vehicle
that was driven to Clewiston
High School by Sergio Garcia,
18, of Clewiston.
Sergio Garcia was arrested
and faces a charge of posses-
sion of a weapon on school

Fall Kids' Fest is


a 'scary' success


By Nicole Curry
CLEWISTON-Goblins and
ghosts and zombies were all
that were in sight last Saturday
at the Fall Kids? Festival. Every-
one was in the spirit of Hal-
loween Oct. 28 as they came to
the Festival at Woodworks Park.
The City of Clewiston's
Recreation Department and the
Chamber of Commerce, put
together a fantastic Fall Kids'
Festival that gave children a cou-
ple days of early Halloween fun.
Many organizations came
out to support the festival and
advertise their cause. American
Red Cross, Clewiston Tigerette
All-Stars, ACFC (Active Citizens
Fighting for Children) and
CREW are just a few organiza-
tions that joined in the festival.
Elizabeth McDaniel-Garcia
and Kristy McDaniel-Bristoll of


Discovery Day Academy the
future daycare facility also come
out to join in. During the festival,
they had more than ten families
sign the waiting list to enroll
their children in the academy.
The Explorers set up a Drug
Consequence haunted house
designed to show children what
would happen if they drove
under the influence of alcohol
or narcotics.
Anyone under age 14 could
compete in the costume con-
test. Eight winners were select-
ed; these children were dressed
as Frankenstein, Bam-Bam,
Pebbles, a bumble bee, a mon-
ster, Bob the Builder, and a zom-
bie.
Some knife-wielding resi-
dents entered the pumpkin-
carving contest held that night.

The winners of the costume contest received Halloween flashlights at the Fall Kids' Festi-
val on Oct. 28th. This family got into the Halloween spirit by having the whole family dress
as the Incredibles.

Pumpkins are colorful and delicious


It's Pumpkin Time!! I absolute-
ly ADORE pumpkins and this time
of year...yay! But did you know
that besides the glorious beauty of
these great big squash (yes, they
are a type of winter squash), they
are also massively nutritious? You
could ostensibly eat the big old
pumpkin you bought your kids to
use as a decoration or not. The
big guys are rather stringy, the
smaller sugar pumpkins, the kind
used to make pies, are better. But
why go to all that trouble? I say
forget it what a colossal mess!
Life is too short for that kind of
gourd surgery. Why not just get
100 percent pumpkin in a can and
call it a day? That's easy button
easy and it won't bend your budg-
et out of place either.
What to do with that canned
pumpkin, you say? Well, you can
make a delicious cream of pump-
kin soup, add some pumpkin
puree to your beef stew or chili
(really it's good, try about /2
cup just mix it right in) or try
my absolutely delicious pumpkin
bread recipe.
How ever you get your pump-
kin, just make sure you get it.
Pumpkin is chocked full of phy-

Captain Hendry Holiday Dinner upcoming


Here we go again; the Captain
Hendry Holiday Dinner sponsored
by Hendry County Economic
Development Council to benefit
the Education Center of South-
west Florida is on the radar screen
for Thursday, November 30. The
evening will begin at 5:30 p.m.
with a social time to meet and
greet friends and business associ-
ates. You'll have an opportunity to
tour the Captain Hendry House
and view the delicious desserts
(and a few other good offerings)
and silently bid on them. Bidding
will continue throughout the
evening. Then later in the evening,
a live auction will occur featuring
10 of the desserts made by those
who had the highest bids last year.
The Italian Dinner starts at 6:15
p.m. and will be prepared by Chef


Christopher. Entertainment will be
provided.
Sponsors again this year are
Bonita Bay Group and Southwest
Florida Workforce Development
Board. If you are interested in a
sponsorship for the evening con-
tact the Economic Development
Council Office at (863) 675-6007.
Rhonda Haag of South Florida
Water Management District will be
guest speaker. Her update on the
Heavy Equipment Training, spon-
sored by SFWMD and the Ed Cen-
ter, will help you understand just
how far the Ed Center has come
since last year's dinner. The train-
ing is taking place to help provide
skilled operators for the big C-43
Reservoir project (West of
LaBelle) scheduled to begin next
summer.


Engagements

Sergent -


Curtiss
Jerry and Roxanne Curtiss, of
Canal Point, are proud to
announce the engagement of
their daughter, Lindsay, to Jared
Sergent, son of Steve and Wanda
Sergent of Moore Haven.
Lindsay received a Finance
and Management Information
Systems degree in 2004 from
Florida State University. She is cur-
rently employed at Florida Power
and Light, where she is a distribu-
tion analyst. Jared received a
degree in Food Resource Eco-
nomics from the University of
Florida in 2002. He co-owns and
manages A-1 Used Parts in Moore
Haven. A January wedding is
planned.


Lindsay Curtiss
and Jared Sergent


Sonny Hughes, Director of the
Ed Center, will give a report on all
the progress that has been made
this past year. The Ed Center is
beginning to take shape and fill
the void of vocational training that
is so necessary in Hendry County
and Southwest Florida.
There are a few changes in the
way the evening will go. As men-
tioned above, a silent auction for
some of the desserts and a few
selected offerings will take place
throughout the evening, then the
live auction (featuring auctioneer
Wayne Wilkins) for the top ten
bids from last year's sale will take
place and the energy and excite-
ment begins. Last year's auction
and dinner raised over $13,500
and over the years the Captain
Hendry Dinner event each spon-


scored by the Economic Develop-
ment Council has raised over
$50,000 for the benefit of the Ed
Center.
Please plan to attend this most
exciting and important event as
we kick-off the holiday season
with the Captain Hendry Holiday
Dinner in support of the Education
Center of Southwest Florida..
Their growth and expansion is evi-
dent with the new programs now
being provided and with their
plans for more opportunities com-
ing soon. The $25 per dinner sup-
ports and helps fund the daily
operations of the Education Cen-
ter of Southwest Florida. Tickets
may be purchased by calling the
Ed Center at (863) 675-6800 or
Economic Development Council
at (863) 675-6007.

DEAR GLADES

COUNTY VOTERS:
Many branches of government have term limits while other elected officials are con-
tinually reelected. If things are running smoothly, there's no need to change it.
However, when one compares our county with surrounding counties, it is obvious
that something is terribly wrong. While there is limited housing growth, our commis-
sioners have adopted impact fees of approximately $8,000 per new residence, while
misleading the people saying it is state mandated. Impact fees are NOT mandated by
the State of Florida. They are placed in force at the option of the County commission-
ers.
In Hillsborough County, approximately 30% is impact-free in order to encourage
growth in outlying areas and to date, Highlands County has none and has enjoyed phe-
nomenal growth, both residentially and commercially.
The electric power plant proposed in Glades County will locate here because of the
central location and NOT because of local political influence. FP&L approached Glades
County with the idea, not vice-versa.
Glades County seems to lack real vision as well as leadership. However, Mr. Alvin
Ward while being a commissioner has improved his own personal net worth to $1.9
million per his public record financial disclosure. This is many times over what it was
before holding a commission seat for ten years.
Had Glades County expeditiously tried to promote growth in housing, industry and
tourism, the county could quite possibly lead instead of follow it's neighboring coun-
ties. A regional landfill is not an economic stimulant and that is the only industry that
has received substantial consideration and support.
Friends, it's truly time for a change on the 2nd district commission seat. Donna
Storter Long has stated she will be that commissioner for a change in leadership. We
should at least allow her the chance by supporting this change, for "nothing ventured,
nothing gained," then after four years, hold her accountable for what she has prom-
ised.
But to reelect a 'good old boy' on a 'good old boy' background is just not enough.

Manatee collisions won't get you


a ticket if you're not speeding


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) and U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service (FWS) said
today, boaters who comply with
manatee speed zones won't get
citations if they strike manatees.
Officials said cooler weather
will cause manatees to begin
their annual migration from
open water to warm-water
springs and power plant dis-
charges, leaving the slow-mov-
ing sea cows vulnerable to
speeding and even slow-moving
vessels. Law-abiding boaters
who strike a manatee or observe
a manatee hit by another vessel
can call the FWC's Wildlife Alert
Hotline at 1-888-404-3922 with-
out fear of a citation. Boaters

SFW D wins
Wesi Palm Beach The Gov-
ernment Finance Officers Asso-
ciation of the United States and
Canada (GFOA) has awarded its
prestigious 'Certificate of
Achievement for Excellence in
Financial Reporting to the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) for the agency's
Comprehensive Annual Finan-
cial Report (CAFR). The Certifi-
cate of Achievement is the high-
est form of recognition in
governmental accounting, and
its attainment demonstrates
adherence to the highest legal
and ethical standards for finan-
cial reporting.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District's CAFR has
been judged by an impartial
panel to meet the GFOA's high
reporting standards, including
demonstrating a constructive
"spirit of full disclosure" to clear-
ly communicate the agency's
financial story and motivate
potential users and user groups


should be prepared to provide
the incident location, weather
conditions, boat specifications
and other relevant information.
FWC will attempt to recover, and
if possible, rehabilitate the animal.
"We want to assure boaters
who operate vessels lawfully and
responsibly they should not feel
reluctant to report accidental
collisions with manatees," FWC
executive director Ken Haddad
said. "The information we gath-
er from reported accidents can
help guide manatee conserva-
tion efforts in the future."
In addition, Mr. Haddad said,
prompt response to an accident
may increase the chance of suc-
cess in attempts to rescue and
care for the injured animal and


eventually return it to the wild.
"People who disregard the
law must be held accountable,
but we understand that people
operating their boats responsibly
and legally may accidentally hit
manatees," FWS regional direc-
tor Sam Hamilton said. "We will
treat accidents as what they are -
accidents. We hope boaters will
report them to us so we have a
chance to rescue the animal and
a chance to learn more about
protecting the species."
Collisions with boats are a
significant source of injury and
mortality in manatees.

agencies' manatee programs,

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore
Greetings! I am going to admit
something here that I am sure
many of you already knew and
might be shocked that it took me
so long to realize it myself: I am not
ever going to be accused of being
the smartest man in the world.
There are times when I am proba-
bly not even the smartest person in
my apartment and I live alone with
two cats.
Last week I went with one of
my board of directors members to
work on increasing the Spanish
business membership in the
Chamber of Commerce. I realized
that I have been pretty oblivious to
a lot of things since I moved here.
Many of the places we went to-visit
were places that I had been driving
past for almost five years, but not


once did I ever go inside. I guess I
never really thought they would
have anything I needed since the
businesses catered to the Hispanic
members of our community. The
concept that I really failed to grasp
was that just because they cater to
a population group doesn't mean
they having nothing to offer the
others. It was my own fear of not
being understood or vice versa that
really kept me from going inside
more than anything. In my
defense, it was my hard head that
decided to ask Gracie Luna (the
board member that held my hand
on the visits) to go with me so that
we could start to service that part of
our town in the manner they
deserve. So off we went and I
came away feeling smarter than I
had in a long time. I was surprised
that La Frontera Supermarket has


all the same things as a regular
supermarket and then some. The
reason that surprised me so much
was, that for a year and a half I lived
about 50 yards from the place, and
any time I needed something I
used to drive to the other end of
town to Wal-Mart or U-SAVE to get
them! I could have walked and
probably saved a little bit of money
on some of the stuff or at least
saved the gas! When you are
cheap and make no mistake, I am
cheap, that is important stuff! I said
to Gracie when we left, "I know I
am not the only one in town that
was that oblivious." Having said
that, I would like to take a minute
to welcome a few of the newest
members of the Chamber of Com-
merce: La Frontera Supermarket,
Sunrise Restaurant, Clewiston
(Vallero) Petroleum.


I sent out an email last week
talking about this briefly so it may
be old news to many of you so
please hang with me. Every year
the Clewiston Lion's Club does an
Italian Sausage fund raiser the
night of Homecoming at Clewiston
High School. The tickets are done
as a pre-sale and the sale of those
tickets actually end today. Make
sure you see a member of the
Lion's club (if you know who they
are) or stop by the Chamber of
Commerce as we have the tickets
on sale here.
That about covers it, and this
week I made no Miami Dolphin
jokes. I think they made enough of
those on their own this weekend.
Now, as far as Florida State
goes...ah, never mind it's too
easy. See you next week!

Letters to the Editor


Vote Wisely
The Veterans of Foreign Wars
and its Ladies and Men's Auxil-
iaries are committed to the orga-
nization's goals of promoting
true patriotism and allegiance to
our country, ensuring that free-
dom, equal rights and just prevail
for all men, women and children.
And, especially giving'assistance
to all veterans and their families;
it is importarit' tat all'veterans
and citizens are aware of issues
that affect our lives, issues that
can do a disservice to all veterans
who sacrificed so we could enjoy
the benefits of our great country
and communities.
These issues and candidates
who support and sponsor
amendments that will benefit our
veterans, and their families are
more important now because on
Nov. 7, we will be.asked to cast
our votes. Candidates have been
campaigning, stating views and
making promises that will impact
our future. Please consider all the
facts before you vote.
On Nov. 7, one issue on the
ballot is Amendment #7 'Per-
manently Disabled Veterans' Dis-
count on Homestead Ad Valorem
Tax. The amendment is spon-
sored by State Senator Mike
Fasanio and State Representative
Ray Sansom. The amendment,
when passed, will give veterans,
age 65 or older, who were Flori-
da residents during their military
service and who are combat-
related disabled, additional dis-
counts on property taxes. The
percentage of discount will be
equal to the percentage of the


veteran's permanent service-
connected disability. Amend-
ment 7 will not remove any exist-
ing benefits Florida's veterans
have earned by virtue of their
military service.
All veterans deserve to benefit
from this amendment, especially
today, when the cost of housing,
food and gas are rising and many
veterans are on limited incomes.
The combat veteran in particular
has sacrificed to grant all citizens
the right to live in a free country
where each person of voting age
has the right to vote for candi-
dates and issues that are impor-
tant to us all. We have been grant-
ed the freedom to make choices
and we have an obligation to vote
-but to VOTE WISELY.
Your vote for amendments and
candidates who support our mili-
tary personnel and veterans will
guarantee benefits our brave men
and women have earned by their
service in prior wars and by their
service today in fighting terrorism.
These issues and candidates will
greatly affect the quality of life we
enjoy and the well being of all vet-
erans and future veterans.
Every citizen of this great
nation and this great state should
carefully weigh each candidate's
statements, promises and voting
record. Please be sure to vote on
Nov. 7 but please vote wisely for
the candidates who will guaran-
tee our future and the future of
our veterans.

OPINION








Thursday, November 2, 2006 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Captain Clay Johnson was an Okeechobee boatman


By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee history has many
legends: Sheriff Pogy Bill Collins,
the Ashley Gang, and Dan
McCarthy and too long neglected,
Captain Clay Johnson.
Before Henry Flagler brought
his Florida East coast Railroad
down to Okeechobee in 1915, the
only way to bring supplies or ship
peppers, beans and tomatoes to
market was by boat, which usual-
ly meant steamboat. Smoke boats
or wood boats they were called
according to historian Lawrence
E. Will.
These boats chugged up and
down Florida's rivers and lakes,
carrying building supplies; pro-
duce and passengers to and from
the towns on the shores of Lake
Okeechobee. Their boilers made
steam that powered the big pad-
dle wheels on their sterns. Early-
on, the boilers were fired with
wood brought down to the river
or lake shore. "Wood landing"
was the name for these fuel stops
along the ways of these boats.
Back then, there was no other
good way to get from here from
there.
There were no roads, just
tracks in the sand and those
weren't much good for traveling,
much less hauling freight. Ossie
Raulerson, born in Ft. Drum in
1906, remembered it all so well
when he was interviewed by
Okeechobee News' Twila Valen-
tine (for a history series published
in the Okeechobee News in the
1980s).
"We moved here (to Okee-
chobee in 1910) on a steamboat
and Taylor Creek over here was
just as crooked as could be. The
captains on those steamboats had
to be pretty careful going in there
that they didn't his boat on any of
those snags or something. Cap-
tain Johnson had three steam-
boats, two on the Kissimmee
River and one on the Caloosa-
hatchee that went to Fort Myers to
serve the people over there."
Mr. Raulerson also remem-
bered that it took three full, long
days to travel by land with an ox
cart to Ft. Pierce and back to
Okeechobee to pick up merchan-
dise for his Uncle Lewis Rauler-
son's store. (Imagine what the
rainy season meant!)
According to Mr. Will, Captain
Clay Johnson had come from
Louisiana to Florida to help
Hamilton Disston with his St.
Cloud sugar plantation.
The '35-foot side-wheeler,
Mamie Lown was Capt. John-
son's first boat. Then the Cincin-
nati (re-named Rose Ada). After
the Rose Ada was re-hulled, he
shortened her name to Roseada.

Captain Clay Johnson and his family are aboard his first steamboat "Mamie Lown" with the
sailboat "Black Witch" in the foreground sometime in the late 1800s

~~:.*


Capt. Johnson standing far left. Seated far left are Grandfather Runels, next to Mr. Runels is
Roberta Johnson around 1900(?).


The Roseada was the last boat to
make the run down the old
Kissimmee River to Basinger after
the railroad had come. Before
that, Basinger was the center of
things in Okeechobee County.
There was a landing on the
river at Basinger, but the town
itself was up on high ground a lit-
tle way back. There were stores, a
hotel, a post office and a church
in Basinger back then.
Captain Johnson's next boat
was said to be his favorite: the
Lillie, named for his wife. It was-
n't a big boat, but it was a fancy
passenger boat with a good


cook. Last, but not least, was the
big Osceola.
Capt. Johnson and his boats
moved all the materials for Dis-
ston's sugar mill in St. Cloud, for
Bryant's sugar company in Canal
Point and the machinery for the
Pennsylvania Company mill up
the canal from Miami.
Even after railroads came and
could haul cheaper and faster
than the steamboats, king-sized
building materials like girders for
the bridges being built were still
hauled by Capt. Johnson's
boats.
Bit by bit gasoline and diesel


engines replaced the wood-fired
boats, but Capt. Johnson's Osce-
ola was still his pride and joy. He
bragged that "she could float in a
heavy dew and out-pull anything
on the lake." But when the diesel
tugboat C.J. Morrow pulled her
backwards, he just gave up.
When she later sank, he quit.
He was the last of the steam
boat skippers on Lake Okee-
chobee.

CLEWISTON The halls of
Westside Elementary School
were howling as the fifth grade
students were treated to a spe- .
cial surprise. On Oct. 27, these --
students were given the chance s i
to see real Alaskan Malamute .-
sled dogs, ..
The students in each class -
have been reading a book a il
about sled dogs. So as a treat
for working hard and learning
about the dogs, Maria Wells
came to show her Alaskan .
Malamutes to the students.
Mrs. Wells raises and trains ,'--.
these dogs to show in competi- .

because they need to check to
see if frozen lakes can stand up

through," says Mrs. Wells as
she shows the kids how soft the
dogs' feet are.
Maria Wells showed the
audience the differences
between harnesses used to pull
light weight and heavy weight.
Everyone loved to pet the
dogs' soft fur, teachers and stu-
dents alike. The teachers were
just as intrigued with the dogs .
as the students were. This was

Tiny wasps help control pink hibiscus


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
today that biological control pro-
gram efforts underway in more
than 30 Florida counties are
proving successful in controlling
the destructive pink hibiscus
mealybug (PHM). PHM was first
discovered in the U.S. in Broward
County four years ago.
"Florida was ready for the dis-
covery of PHM, recognizing that
because of its prevalence in the
Caribbean, it was only a matter
of time before it arrived in the
U.S.," Mr. Bronson said. "Florida
is besieged with invasive plant
pests and diseases because of
our climate and location and
finding natural solutions to these
problems is a key component of
the Department's mission," he
added.
Luckily, PHM has some natu-
ral enemies two are parasitic,
gnat-sized wasps (Anagyrus
kamali and Gyranusoidea indi-
ca), that attack PHM but cause
no harm to other insects, plants
or animals. Another enemy that
is helping to control PHM num-
bers is a lady beetle, Cryptolae-
mus that is a predator of PHM
and already well established in
Florida.
PHM has spread to 34 Florida
counties, including Manatee, Sara-


sota, Pinellas and Hillsborough.
Most of the infestations have been
found on hibiscus plants. Biologi-
cal control parasites are being
released in all counties with cur-
rent infestations. In the last four
years, more than 2 million have
been released.
In addition to PHM parasite
rearing facilities in California and
Puerto Rico, the parasites are
now being reared at the Depart-
ment's Division of Plant Industry
in Gainesville at a rate of 16,000
per week. Currently, two thirds
of these are being released in the
Sarasota/Manatee county area
where some of the state's
newest infestations have been
identified.
Even though the biological
control program is helping to
suppress the population of PHM,
eradication is not feasible and
pest management is a more real-
istic approach. After the biologi-
cal control parasites are released
in an area, in time, usually two or
three months, they will repro-
duce and spread out miles from
the initial release site.
Biological control programs
conducted in the Caribbean
have reported 60%-80% reduc-
tion of PHM within six months of
parasite releases at test sites, and
95%-98% after one year. The
southeast Florida PHM biologi-
cal control program has been


ongoing since the initial out-
break in June of 2002 and results
have been promising. In
Broward and Miami-Dade coun-
ties, plant recovery is excellent.
Average decline in the PHM
adult female population at study
sites was 97.2%.
PHM occurs in most tropical
areas of the world and attacks
more than 200 plant species,
including many found in Florida,
such as hibiscus, citrus, mango,
avocado, tomato, cucumbers
and others. It is a tiny (3mm)
sap-sucking insect that forms
colonies on host plants, which if
left undisturbed, can grow into
large cotton-like masses of white
waxy deposits on branches and
leaves. PHM feeds on the sap of
the plant and releases toxic sub-
stances causing injury and
sometimes death to the plant.
PHM infestations are spread by
wind, infected plant material
and also by ants or other small
insects.
Although PHM is potentially a
very serious threat, homeowners
should not become overly con-
cerned because Florida is home
to more than 200 species of rela-
tively harmless mealybugs, all of
which share a similar appear-
ance once they infest a host
plant. Only an entomologist can
determine if a plant has PHM.
PHM can be distinguished from


other mealybug species by its
reddish-brown, smooth body
and pink-to-red body fluid.
If homeowners think their
plants may have PHM, they can
call the state helpline at (888)
397-1517. State plant inspectors
will check properties in new
areas suspected of having PHM.
If PHM has already been detect-
ed in an area, and the beneficial
parasites have been released, it
may not be necessary to check
individual yards. The Depart-
ment is asking that homeowners
and lawn maintenance compa-
nies control PHM damage to
plants by cutting away damaged
areas, double bagging plant
debris and disposing of it with
their household garbage, not
their yard trash. Yard trash is
often composted and spread
back into the environment. The
state is also asking homeowners
in areas where the PHM para-
sites are being released to avoid
using pesticides on their land-
scape plants because the insecti-
cides will kill the beneficial para-
sites that are being released to
control PHM.
More information about the
pink hibiscus mealybug is avail-
able on the Department=s web-
site at www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi
or call 888-397-1517.


Everything rests squarely on your attitude


Our attitudes are everything!
Yes I know that you don't believe
me, but what we think about we
bring about! We have to look at
what we are doing to ourselves
and our families with our atti-
tudes!
When we whine and say no
one ever helps around here, then
that is just what you are asking
for and guess what, you will get
it!
When we feel pitiful, with
that "don't care" or "I can't" atti-
tude then we reflect that in our
appearance.
Now here is the big one!
When we act poor we will be
poor! I am not saying to go out
and spend thousands of dollars,
it is an "Ole poor me" attitude
that makes us save things and
hoard stuff.
There is another attitude that
hits us all hard. You can make
yourself sick with your attitude.
The mind is a strange machine! If
you think it is so, your wish will be
granted. Whether you are actually
sick or not! The good part about
this is that we can refuse to be
sick and it will help us get better
too!
What about the anorexic
woman who weighs 85 pounds.
When she sees herself in the mir-


The
Flylady

Cilley


ror, she sees fat. She can't help it.
Then there are the people that
will never have a clean home
because one thing is out of place
means the whole house is dirty.
Then there are those of us that
don't think we have time to clean
it like our mothers did, so we do
nothing!
How about the "I don't have
enough time" attitude? Guess
what you won't, if you don't stop
thinking this way! ..
Then there is the "I'm so stu-
pid" attitude; you are not, but you
say this to yourself more times
than I want to know about. Hey it
has even come out of your
mouths in front of your babies.
What does that tell them about
how you love yourself?
Our attitudes are everything.
We have been making ourselves
sick! The guilt, stress, self-defeat-


ing attitudes, negativity, perfec-
tionism, martyrdom, and anger
are helping to create illness and
discomfort in our lives.
I know we are all going to die
one day. Death is part of living!
But why can't we live our lives to
the fullest by letting go of this
stress, guilt, anger, perfectionism,
martyrdom and those other nega-
tive behaviors. We deserve to be
happy and when you get rid of
this negativity, guess what is left:
Joy and contentment.
We all know how to clean, we
just don't know when to get up
and move! That is what I do; moti-
vate you to get off your fanny and
do something. I fill your head with
an attitude adjusting essay so you
will see how your negative atti-
tudes are keeping you from FLY-
ing! If I can do this one thing, your
home will come together and
before you know it you will be
loving yourself more than you
ever thought possible. If the truth
be known, you never knew there
was a lack of love that caused all
this CHAOS. You just thought you
were lazy! Well you are not!
When you hear those self-
deprecating words come out of
your mouth and even in your
head; stop right then and there
and turn them into positive affir-


nations. First delete the ugly
words by saying Delete, I didn't
mean that, I take that back. I
refuse to let you beat me up!
Then say the positive phrase
seven times out loud: "I can do, I
am strong."
It took me a long time to really
start believing myself when I said
to me, "I love myself!" Slowly it
will start to become part of you if
you will continue to say the words
to yourself. What we think about
we bring about! It takes time. I'd
say about nine months of giving
birth to a new you! It is just like
with your routines; they didn't
happen over night! Slowing and
one babystep at a time you began
replacing your ineffective habits
with new efficient ways of living
and loving!
It all starts with knowing what
we are doing to ourselves. When
we know we can change!
Are you ready to FLY with a
new loving attitude?
For more help getting rid of
your CHAOS; check out her Web
site and join her free mentoring
group at www.FlyLady.net or her
book, "Sink Reflections," pub-
lished by Bantam and her new
book," Body Clutter." Copyright

PSC grants Crist


petition for services


TALLAHASSEE attorney
General Charlie Crist's petition to
intervene on behalf of Florida
telephone customers was for-
mally granted yesterday, allowing
him to join a previously filed peti-
tion from Florida's Public Coun-
sel and AARP that asks the Public
Service Commission to order
Florida phone companies to
automatically enroll eligible low-
income residents in the Lifeline
telephone service. The PSC noti-
fied the Attorney General
(A.G.)that his petition to join the
case had been granted.
The Lifeline program pro-
vides low-priced telephone serv-
ices designed to ensure that
basic telephone service remains
affordable to all residents of
Florida. The services are intend-
ed to provide consumers who
otherwise might not be able to
afford telephone service with
life-saving communication
opportunities. A.G. Crist filed the
petition with the 'PSC last week
to support the request of Public
Counsel Harold McLean and
AARP, whose petition noted that
fewer than 13 percent of qualify-
ing Florida residents participate
in the program, meaning more
than one million eligible house-
holds do not take advantage of
the available benefits.
"I am pleased to join the fight
for this life-saving program on
behalf of Floridians," said A.G.
Crist. "Citizens deserve fair rates
without having to jump through
hoops or over obstacles."
Floridians and the State of
Florida are not receiving the


financial benefits that are
deserved from contributions they
make to fund universal support
services, including Lifeline. In
2003, Florida contributed more
than $44 million into the federal
fund that pays for Lifeline, but
only received $15.5 million in
return, losing more than $29 mil-
lion. In 2004, Floridians paid
more than $385 million to the
universal service fund, but
received little more than $137
million in support for Lifeline and
other support services, resulting
in a loss of almost a quarter of a
billion dollars. Increasing partici-
pation in Lifeline will help to
reduce that deficit and increase
the benefits to eligible Floridians.
Additionally, Lifeline Assistance
can save eligible consumers as
much as $160 per year on tele-
phone services.
Under the proposal by Mr.
McLean, AARP and A.G. Crist,
telephone companies would be
required to work with the Depart-
ment of Children and Families to
enroll all Floridians who would
qualify for the assistance. Exam-
ples of those who qualify include
Floridians who are on food
stamps or who request federal
public housing assistance and
other assistance programs. More
information on eligibility is avail-
able at: http://www.floridapsc.
com/utilities/telecomm/lifeline/
engbrochure.aspx.

FWC reopens Wildlife

Management Area locally


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has reopened the Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor
Wildlife Management Area,
which was closed in late Septem-
ber because of high water levels.
High water levels, which have
now receded, were jeopardizing
wildlife, particularly deer, in the
area, which includes parts of


Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-
Dade counties.
FWC Assistant Executive
Director Vic Heller signed an
executive order Thursday to
reopen the area to public access.

Farm-city Week emphasizes urban-rural partnership


TALLAHASSEE Autumn is a
time of optimism for Florida farm-
ers as they prepare to harvest their
winter crops tofeed the nation. Fall
also brings the annual Farm-City
Week, which will be observed
November 17-23, and Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is urging Floridians to
take the opportunity to reflect on
the interdependence of farmers,
consumers and all those whose
efforts make Florida's agricultural
system work.
"Every year, Farm-City Week
reminds us all rural and urban
residents alike that we live and
work together in the same environ-
ment and depend on each other,"
Bronson said.
Farm-City Week started by
the National Farm-City Council and
promoted nationally by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau is observed
the seven days leading up to and
including Thanksgiving. Under the
theme "Partners in Progress,"
Farm-City Week salutes all those
who work as part of the complex
network that brings food from the
field to the table. These "Partners in
Progress" include farmers and
ranchers, researchers, processors,
brokers, truckers and shippers,
advertisers, wholesalers and retail-
ers. This network results in numer-
ous benefits to society by providing
an abundance and variety of food
as well as products used to make

who produce the products, those who consume

clothing, housing, medicines, and
countless other items used daily.
"The key is the interdepend-
ence among those who produce
the products, those who consume
the products, and all those in the
production and marketing chain
between the producer and con-
sumer," said Bronson. "These vital
farm-city partnerships -with rural
and urban communities working
together have made the most of
our rich agricultural resources, and
they continue to contribute to our
health and well being and to the
strength of our economy."
Bronson also urged Floridians
to visit their local community farm-
ers' markets during the fall and
winter to enjoy fresh Florida fruits
and vegetables at the peak of fresh-
ness and wholesomeness.
Shopping at farmers' markets
is a growing trend in Florida, and
the number of farmers' markets
in the state has doubled in the last


10 years. More than 70 communi-
ty farmers' markets are listed with
the Florida Department ofAgricul-
ture and Consumer Services. Half
of Florida's 67 counties have
farmers' markets.
"The increasing popularity of
farmers' markets is due to a couple
of factors," Bronson said. "As peo-
ple have become more health-con-
scious, there's a growing demand
for fresh, high-quality produce.
And what could be more healthful
than produce that's grown locally,
often just minutes away from your
home?"

People who shop at farmers'
markets enjoy fresh, wholesome
produce throughout the growing
season, while helping to keep
small farms viable. There are also
less obvious benefits: buying local-
ly grown food conserves energy
and other natural resources,
reduces air and water pollution,
preserves green space, and helps
build a stronger, more close-knit
community.
"There tends to be a social
aspect to the markets," Bronson
said. "The historic ties between
farmer- and consumer are
restored."
Florida's 44,000 commercial
farmers grow more than 280 differ-
ent crops. Year round, Florida
ranks No. 2 nationally in the U.S.
production of fresh vegetables.
Florida provides 80 percent of the
fresh vegetables grown in the Unit-
ed States during January, February
and March of each year. Florida
agriculture has an estimated over-
all economic impact of more than
$87 billion annually.

It is illegal to bring into Florida
carcasses of any species of the fam-
ily Cervidae (e.g. deer, elk and
moose) from 10 states and one
Canadian province where chronic
wasting disease (CWD) has been
found, according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC).
The deadly disease has turned
up in: New Mexico, Utah, Col-
orado, Wyoming, South Dakota,
Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New
York, West Virginia and Alberta,
Canada.
Visit the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Web site at
www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahps/cw
d/ for the most up-to-date CWD
coverage.
"To date, no cases of CWD have
been found in Florida," said Deer
Program coordinator Robert Van-
derhoof of the FWC's Division of
Hunting and Game Management.
"Hunters can help prevent the
spread of CWD into Florida by
observing the restrictions placed
on bringing carcasses in from other
areas where the disease has been
detected."
CWD, first identified in Col-
orado in 1967, is a disease that
affects the central nervous system
and is related to "mad cow" dis-
ease in cattle and scrapie in sheep.
The disease always proves fatal to
the infected animal,.but there are
no known cases of it being trans-
mitted to people, domestic animals
or livestock
Hunters still can bring back de-


boned meat from any CWD-affect-
ed region, as well as finished taxi-
dermy mounts, hides, skulls,
antlers and teeth as long as all soft
tissue has been removed.
Whole, bone-in carcasses and
parts are permitted to be brought


back to Florida if they were harvest-
ed from non-affected CWD areas.
To report sick or dead deer sus-
pected of having CWD, call the
CWD hotline (866) 293-9282. For
more information about CWD, visit
MyFWC.com/cwd.

New small game spots open thanks to FWC


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC), in cooperation with the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, is opening new
small-game areas for hunters
this year, providing increased
opportunities for migratory bird
hunting.
The Rocky Glades public
small game hunting area in
Miami-Dade County and the C-
23/24 Reservoir small game
hunting area in St.. Lucie County
are-open.
"The FWC is.dedicated to pro-
viding opportunities to hunters
on public lands whenever it
can," said Dr. Jen Williams, pub-
lic hunt.areas biologist for the.
FWC. "These are prime sites for
doves, bItathei small.game also
may be available for hunters."
Both areas follow the
statewide migratory bird season.
That means hunters can take


migratory birds during the entire
duration of each phase of dove
season and during each of the
waterfowl seasons.
The C-23/24 Reservoir area is
a 1,139-acre site made up of
abandoned orange groves and a
reservoir. Rocky Glades is a 158-
acre site abutting Everglades
National Park. Both were open
for special duck season at the
end of September and are open
for the first phase of dove season,
which just began. They will be
open Nov. 11 through Jan. 7 for
taking hogs and small game such
as rabbits, quail and squirrel.
A third area, Allapatah Flats, a
20,945-acre small game hunting
area in Martin County, is expect-
ed to open by the start of small-
game season. It does not follow
the statewide migrator. bird
season Hunters ma\ take migra-
tory birds there only \when that
season coincides with the small


game season established for that
area. Though the area is dry and
not ideal for waterfowl this year,
there are plenty of hogs and a
special-opportunity: a dove
hunting field west of Fox Brown
Road that should keep hunters
happy. Hunters must have a per-
mit to hunt on the special-
opportunity dove field, but no
permits are required to hunt on
the rest of the area.
"The dove field is in a higher,
drier location than it has been in
past years, so it should attract
more doves," Williams said. "It
was moved specifically for that
reason."
Allapatah Flats likely will
become a wildlife management
area in 2007. Fishing, public
access and tent camping are per-
mitted throughout the year on
the site, which is mostly
improved pasture. There are
also pine flatwoods, oak ham-


mocks, bay heads and an 85-
acre lake. The Rocky Glades and
the C-23 24 Reservoir sites will
be used for future water man-
agement projects, so hunting
opportunities may change.

hunting or to see brochures on

I Tigers stay perfect, whip St. Andrews 49-6


Submitted photos/Jeff Barwick
Tiger cheerleaders give a yell for their team at Friday night's
game against St. Andrews.


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers contin-
ued their unbeaten season on Fri-
day night when they traveled to
Boca Raton and whipped St.
Andrews in a their final district
game of the year.
The Tigers now head to home-
coming this Friday for a match up
with Okeechobee as the Tigers
shoot for their first undefeated sea-
son since 1990. Okeechobee will
enter the contest with a 3-6 record.
The Tigers dominated the
weaker Scots after the opening
quarter but the first 10 minutes of
the contest had the Tiger faithful
sitting on the edge of their seats.
Clewiston took the opening kick-
off after the Scots deferred. On
the first snap from a spread for-
mation, a high snap broke the
rhythm of a running play and
quarterback Jared Combass
missed the handoff to Jamal
Hubert and the Scots recovered
deep in Tiger territory at the 17.
The tough Tiger defense stopped
them at the 14, forcing a field goal
attempt. Tiger defensive tackle
Johnny Jones broke through the
line to block a 30 yard field goal
attempt. Taking over at the 20, the


Jamal Hubert steps into end zone for a touchdown on a 6 yard run.


Jasper Hunter pulls in a Combass pass and then headed up field for a 45 yard gain.


Tigers turned the ball right back
over to St. Andrews on the sec-
ond play when a snap exchange
between Tiger center Ryan Gut-
shall and Combass wound up on
the turf. This time, the Scots capi-
talized on the Tiger error and
quarterback Joey Lancos scored
on a 1 yard sneak with a little over
2 minutes left in the quarter. Tiger
nose tackle Edwin Alverez
blocked the point after attempt.
Finally, the Tigers managed to
hold on to the ball and scored on
a four play drive covering 80
yards that took only 50 seconds
off the game clock. Combass
linked up on a 12 yard pass to
John Melton and then a text book
45 yard hitch and go pattern to
wideout Jasper Hunter.
Tiger tailback Jamal Hubert
then smashed the final 20 yards
and kicker Will Davis converted to
put the Tigers on top, 7-6.
The Tigers took an early sec-
ond period short punt and began
a drive from the Scots' 40 yard
line. Four plays later Hubert
scored again a 5 yard run and
Davis converted. The Tigers
scored their final first half points
with only 26 seconds remaining
after a 76 yard, 8 play drive that
was highlighted by Combass' pre-
cision passing. He connected
with Melton and Hunter again for
plays of 13 and 22 yards. A few
plays later, Combass lobbed a
screen pass to Hubert who raced
up the field for 39 yards to the
Scots' one yard line. On the next
snap, Hubert danced into the end
zone and Davis tacked on the
extra point and the Tigers went to
intermission sporting a 21-6
advantage.
The third period found Clewis-
ton adding another score when
Hubert raced for a 35 yard score to
cap off a 4 play drive covering 78
yards. Hubert had a 30 yard run on
the drive and tailback Darris Hugh-
es had a 13 yard run, too. Davis
nailed the extra point.
The final period, most of which
was played under a running clock
as the Tiger's advantage exceeded
35 points, saw Clewiston scoring
three times.
Hubert scored on a six yard
run, Darris Hughes on a 13 yard
dash and then Collin Ricketts
punched in the final score on a 24
yard run. Davis added all three
extra points as he extended his
perfect streak to 39.
The Tiger offense was cooking
after.the early mistakes. Jared
Combass was at his passing best
for the entire season. Of the ten
incomplete passes thrown, virtual-
ly everyone of them hit the receiver
and most could have been caught.
In scoring seven rushing touch-
downs, the Tigers moved the ball
pretty much at will.
Defensively, the Tigers were the
same old tough group that has
been showing up all season. The
touchdown given up in the first
quarter was the first yielded in five
games. On the night, linebacker
David Pope had 4 tackles and an
assist. Defensive end Delvin Hugh-
es was in the Scots' backfield most
of the night and had 4 tackles, an
assist, two running sacks, and
recovered a fumble. Defensive
backs John Melton and Sim Put-
nam each had an interception.
Holding the Scots to a total of 86
yards of total offense, the defense
seems to just get tougher each
week and plays with very few
penalties assessed despite their
hard hitting.
The Tigers will host Mulberry in
round one of the Class 2A State
Playoffs on November 10. Mulber-
ry actually finished in third place in
District 2A-5 but runner-up St.
Petersburg Catholic is ineligible for
post-season play this year and
next. They received these sanc-
tions for recruiting violations and
for improper filming of an oppo-
nent. Mulberry enters the final
week of the regular season with a
2-7 record and Bishop Verot was


the only common opponent for
this season. Both the Tigers and
Mulberry handily beat the Vikings.

'Water what you want to grow'


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I may be slow at times but
sometimes I get an amazing grasp
of the obvious. I went into the
bathroom and there hanging on
the wall was a
little plaque
that my wife
had just put up.
It simply stat-
ed, "If we can
put men on the
moon, why ;
can't we teach ., "
them to pick .'
up their John
socks?" Hicks
I started
laughing. Point made.
So ladies, how do you improve
your man? Let me share with you
a few perspectives from this
man's point of view.
Think about animal acts. Have
you ever watched them? It's


amazing what they can get ani-
mals to do! If you watch closely,
however, you will come to under-
stand why they do all the neat
stuff they do. After each trick, they
look up to the trainer. In the train-
ers' pocket or small pouch there
is a treat. If you want to get a dog
or a dolphin or a bird to do some-
thing, give them a treat.
I enjoy watching animals, I
also enjoy watching people. One
thing I've noticed in the man-
woman relationship in all my
watching is that men are a lot like
the animals. If you want a dolphin
to do something, you give him a
fish. If you want to get the dog to
jump through the hoop, give him
a treat. In a like manner, if you
give us a fish when we do some-
thing good, then we'll do it again.
Give us a treat, and we'll also
jump through that hoop.
Some women seem to believe
that the best way to get their man
to improve is to nag him into it.


Some have a tongue sharper than
any harpies'.
The Scriptures tell us that "The
wise woman builds her house,
but with her own hands the fool-
ish one tears hers down." There
are some things that a woman
does that build the people she
cares about, and there are others
that tear them down.
Most women agree that every
man needs work done on him.
However, if you approach your
husband like a personal home
improvement project, you'll prob-
ably run into complications. If you
say, "I've got to fix this guy!"
chances are the fix will come
hard. Is it stubbornness or ego or
just selective hearing? I'm not
sure, probably some of all of
these. One thing I do know, how-
ever. When a man is pushed, he
tends to go the other way not
come your direction. For me, the
stronger the wind blows, the
stronger I resist it. (Yes, even pas-


tors can be obtuse!)
If you want to improve your
man, lift him up. Honor him.
Value him. Tell him what's good
about him. Praise him when he
does something right, even if it's
just a small improvement. Give
him a fish if you want him to do it
some more. Or, like one lady of
wisdom shared, "Water what you
want to grow."
When you consistently have a
ministry of encouragement and
affirmation in your man's life,
you'll notice that when he feels
safe and valued by you, he's a lot
more likely to listen when you
need to tell him something that's
hard to hear. He'll know you love
him and that you want him to be
the best he can be.
Ruth Graham, wife of Evange-
list Billy Graham, states it better
than I ever could. Ruth made the
comment, "It is my job to love
Billy. It's God's job to change
him!" Amen.


Your vote is a legacy reflecting your values


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
One member of a Church I
served was not too active in his
later years. When I went by to visit,
he asked me about what he should
do with his estate.
It would have been easy to say
"leave it to the Church," but that
was not what I felt would be the
most ethical answer. Instead, I
asked him about his values. I asked
him "What do you believe in?" and
he thought.
I suggested that if he believed in
education, he might wish to set up
a scholarship to support someone
who needed help to become an
engineer (he had worked as an
engineer for many years.) I sug-
gested that if he liked animals, he
might support the work of animal
rescue leagues in the region. I sug-
gested that if his faith was impor-
tant to him and served to sustain
him during his life, he might wish
to support his church and see that
it was sustained and that the good
works done might continue.
I asked him about his hobbies
and past times or the things that
might have refreshed him and
that he enjoyed; he had none
other than his work. We talked
about special people in his life
-and that he didn't have to leave


everything to just one cause but
could support many of the things
that made up his life.
1 hope I caused him to reflect on
a larger question; "Who are you?"
and use his tan-
gible blessings
of support to
see what he
believed would '
continue.
We "vote"
with how we g
use our God-
given
resources all of Samuel S.
our lives as Thomas
well as when
we come to our earthly ends, too.
I think it is our best expression of
our true values and who we are;
not what we say or have written
on our bumper stickers, or where
we go to listen, but how we use
what is entrusted to us.
Biblically, James (Chapter, verse
22) admonishes us that we are to
be "doers of the word, and not
hearers only."
What we have come to believe
is to reflect a legacy to be handed
over and forwarded, as well as rep-
resenting what we believe our
directions are to take now, too.
Perhaps voting is really a way
of saying "What are we about?"
and not just choosing someone


who had the best ad campaign
or who could direct my under-
standing of what they are about
by talking (usually badly) about
an opponent.
It has occurred to me that my
voting is also my will and testa-
ment, but it has a here-and-now
part as well as a future part. The
questions that help me make a
decision is to know "Who are
you?" and "What are you about?"
The more I hear about persons
and who they are; the better I will
understand if they are "doers of the
word" and not see a disconnect
between words and actions.
I remember learning in school
about "padding." That was when
students who didn't know the
answer to a question used to write
around it, or spend all of their time
writing on a small point because
they didn't know the major point to
be covered, or when they really
didn't answer the questions being
asked and instead wrote their own


answer to try to make it look as if it
was related to the question asked.
Good teachers would penalize
them; it really meant they hadn't
studied and hadn't done their
homework.
Every now and then, "padding"
comes to mind when I listen to
people searching for my support.
The question that helps me decide
who to support deals with issues
but it also deals with "Who are
you?" When I hear what sounds
like "padded answers", I wonder
about the legacy for the future that
will be left and if this is the legacy I
want to have for the next few years
and beyond, too.
My old church member left a
good legacy. It was because it was
a living witness to who he was and
what he believed. That's the kind of
legacy I'd like to leave too; at each
decision, in each vote, and finally to
continue in God's world as a
"doer" every day, and at the last
day, too.

Adults need immunizations too


In the news recently, the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) has added a
new immunization to its recommend-
ed list. A new vaccine is now available
to help prevent contracting Human
Papillomavirus or HPV HPV has been
labeled as the cause of cervical cancer
in women, and the CDC recommends
the vaccine for girls ages 11-12. The
CDC also recommends "catch-up" vac-
cinations for females ages 13-26. Vacci-
nations have not been recommended
for the female population over the age
of 26, as statistics indicate they proba-
bly have already been exposed to HPV,
which is very common.
The new HPV vaccine is just one of
the vaccines adults should be aware of.
Talk to your doctor about which immu-
nizations you should have. Some
immunizations given in childhood
require periodic "boosters" to remain
effective. Other immunizations such
as chickenpox vaccine may not
have been available when you were a
child.
The CDC recommends the follow-
ing vaccines for all adults:
HepatitisAvaccine Hepatitis A is a
serious liver disease. It is spread
through contact and sometimes
through contaminated food or water.
Adults considered most at risk include
persons who use illegal drugs, persons
with chronic liver disease, health care
workers who treat at-risk persons and
those who work in research facilities.
Hepatitis B vaccine Hepatitis B is
caused by a virus that attacks the liver. It
can lead to liver failure and death. It is
spread through sex with an unprotect-
ed person, sharing injection needles or
from an infected mother to her unborn
child. Adults most at risk include health
care workers, those with a job that
involves contact with human blood,
drug users and persons who have sex
with an infected person.
Measles-Mumps-Rubella
vaccine Adults most at risk are those
who were not vaccinated as children
and who never contracted Measles,
Mumps or Rubella.
Meningococcal vaccine Meningo-
coccal disease is an infection of fluid
surrounding the brain and spinal cord.

Adults at risk include college students
living in dormitories, microbiologists,
military recruits, anyone who travels
abroad to a country where the disease
is common, anyone who has a dam-
aged spleen, anyone with an immune
system disorder and those exposed to a
meningitis outbreak.
Tetanus-Diphtheria vaccine The
CDC recommends booster shots at
least every ten years. Tetanus is cased
by a germ that enters the body through
a cut or a wound. Tetanus can lead to
locking of the jaw (Tetanus is also
called "lockjaw"), muscle spasms and
inability to swallow. Diphtheria is
spread from an infected person to the
nose or throat of others. Diphtheria can
lead to breathing problems, heart fail-
ure, paralysis and death. Since the bac-
teria that cause these diseases are
widespread, the CDC recommends all
adults be immunized. If you have not
been immunized for tetanus in the past
five years, consult your doctor to find
out if you should have a booster shot.
Varicella (chickenpox) vaccine
Chickenpox vaccine has been available
since 1995. Vaccinations are recom-
mended for anyone who has not
already had chickenpox. While chick-
enpox is considered a "childhood" dis-
ease, it can be contracted by adults,
and the symptoms can be much more
serious in adults. Those most at risk are
health care workers and childcare
workers.
Additional recommendations:
Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
vaccine The CDC now recommends
this vaccination for girls ages 9-26. The
Advisory Committee on Immunization
Practices (ACIP) recommends that a
newly licensed vaccine designed to


protect against human papillomavirus
virus (HPV) be routinely given to girls
when they are 11-12 years old. The
ACIP recommendation also allows for
vaccination of girls beginning at nine
years old as well as vaccination of girls
and women 13-26 years old. HPV is the
leading cause of cervical cancer in
women. According to the ACIP's rec-
ommendation, three doses of the new
vaccine should be routinely given to
girls when they are 11 or 12 years old.
The advisory committee, however,
noted that the vaccination series can be
started as early as nine years old at the
discretion of the physician or health
care provider. The recommendation
also includes girls and women 13-26
years old because they will benefit
from getting the vaccine. The vaccine
should be administered before onset of
sexual activity (before women are
exposed to the viruses), but females
who are sexually active should still be
vaccinated.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Health, this vaccine is not
presently available through the Florida
Vaccines for Children (VFC) program.
The VFC program will notify providers
when the vaccine is available for order.
There are no plans at this time to add
HPV to the Florida school entry require-
ment, according to the Department of
Health Web site.
For adults over the age of 50, the
CDC also recommends:
Influenzavaccine The flu is a con-
tagious respiratory illness. The CDC
recommends that those over age 50 get
flu shots every fall, before the start of
"flu season."
For adults over the age of 65, the
CDC also recommends:
Pneumococcal vaccine Pneumo-
coccal disease can lead to pneumonia.
Talk to your doctor about your vac-
cinations and immunizations. If you
aren't sure which diseases you had as a
child, in some cases there are blood
tests that can determine if you should
have a vaccination. Remember, the
time to ask about vaccinations is before
you get sick!


SFWMD's AAA-Rated bonds invested


West Palm Beach The South
Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD), the oldest and largest water
resource management agency in the
State of Florida, announced today that
its inaugural Acceler8 financing con-
sisting of $546 million, Series 2006 Cer-
tificates of Participation (COPs) was
successfully offered in the primary
market through Citigroup Global Mar-
kets in NewYork City on October 25.
According to Citigroup, the SFWMD
COPs are the first to be issued for a nat-
ural resources project in the United
States and most of the more than $500
million of capital was raised during a
two-hour order period. Strong early
sales resulted in an additional $26 mil-
lion raised for Everglades restoration,
above and beyond the COPs' total par
value of $546 million.
COPs will be used to fund eight
accelerated Everglades restoration
projects, dubbed Acceler8 and consid-
ered critical to the overall revitalization


of this fragile ecosystem. Borrowing
the money today will help avoid
inevitable increases in construction
materials and labor costs over the life
of these key projects.
The financing program is rated
Aa/AA+/AA- by Moody's, Standard &
Poor's and Fitch rating agencies,
respectively. A bond insurance wrap
from Ambac raised the COPs rating to
Aaa/AAA/AAA.
"The planning for financing these
projects was started more than two
years ago," said Paul Dumars, Chief
Financial Officer at the South Florida
Water Management District. "The Dis-
trict leadership wanted a funding solu-
tion for early construction of these
eight very critical projects with their
sub components, and we felt that the
responsible thing to do was to have
these critical projects completed soon-
er rather than later. Our focus was to
deliver the benefits of these projects
more rapidly to the ecosystem, start


construction to help the communities
where projects were to be constructed
and avoid the rising cost of construc-
tion and other associated elements."
By fast-tracking the funding, design
and construction of Acceler8 projects,
the Everglades will experience positive
benefits much sooner and in a more
cost-effective manner. As opposed to
the "pay as you go" approach, taxpay-
er dollars needed for construction will
be significantly leveraged and the expe-
dited course of action reaffirms the
commitment of the federal, state and
local partnership to revitalize the Ever-
glades ecosystem.
In addition to the environmental
improvements, Acceler8 projects also
will provide additional flood control
and water supply options, along with
faster access to state and federal lands
for recreational opportunities. For

cific Acceler8 projects, please visit

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello! I
have a 6 month old American Bull dog
named Vagas. She is healthy, happy
and playful. She however has a terrible
problem which I am having trouble
breaking. Although I provide her a fresh
bowl of water daily, she insists on
drinking out of the toilet!
Help! Especially since I don't always
flush.
Thanks Doc, Kevin in Belle Glade.
Answer: Dear Kevin. Well, dogs
seem to love that big old water bowl-
toilet bowl don't they?
I have a hospital cat named Barney
who insists on drinking out of the toilet
too. Since my staff and myself are all
girls...Well, we all do seem to remem-
ber to flush! Flushing of course will
make the whole thing a bit more sani-
tary, but even easier will be to put the
lid down.
I know this may sound like a very
simple solution, but as women around
the world will agree...Getting their guy
to put the seat down is challenge
enough!
All I can say is, "You can do it!"
Take care Kevin, and just remember
up, then down...
Doc Savvy.
