tion.
The kittens will be featured
on the shelter's website for

to the shelter for adoption and
being altered, they will be
reducing the astronomical

of them! All of the kittens will
be tested for Feline Leukemia

given a flea treatment and
spayed or neutered.

agement, outpatient services and
other related programs will be
discontinued.
"We won't be able to assist in
prevention care anymore," said
Mr. Hosick. "But, we will work
with our existing clients through
a participating system with other
clinics through referrals," he
added.
According to Mr. Hosick,
these funds were mistakenly
given to them by DCF, but right-
fully they belonged to the child


foster care system instead and
had to be returned.
Due to the cutback, the center
will not be able to afford full-time
staff. The remainder of the funds
($35,000) that were designated
for children's case management
and outpatient services will be
redirected to keep and fund a
part-time psychiatrist in house, in
order to keep medication servic-
es and psychiatric evaluation
services available in the local
clinic, he explained.


Due to other recent state Med-
icaid funding reductions, "the
clinic has suffered enormously,"
he said. He.explained further that
even though the DCF cut-back
only means 10 percent loss over-
all, ' the impact to the children's
mental health services is 77 per-
cent, so the program had to be
discontinued.

CLEWISTON - A local area
mental health clinic was recently
advised of a major reduction of

ilies (DCF) Area 8 Substance
Abuse and Mental Health office
has, as of June 1, cut back fund-

CLEWISTON - The Adult

library offers free, tuition to any-
one who wishes to improve
their reading and writing skills.
It also offers the teaching of
English as a foreign language
and help is given with prepara-
tion for GED courses as well.
The level in the English course
goes up to college level.
A business course is also
available as an alternative
course, according to Clewiston
Branch. Library Director Bar-
bara Oeffner.
At the open house on the
Wednesday, May 30, many
interested individuals came by
to see what the program has to


offer and to discuss the individ-
ual requirements of the pro-
gram.
Susan Turner is the literacy
program co-coordinator. She
said she was very excited about
the open house outcome.
"It is a great program," said
Ms. Turner "This is a way to be
part of the community and to.
help the community at no

The open house also was a
good opportunity to talk to the

CLEWISTON - On the very
first day of the begging of the
2007 Hurricane Season, the day
began cloudy and a lot of much
needed rain.
Just before noon on June 1,
a semi driver, Christopher R.
Jackson, 35, of Jonesboro, Ga.,
was headed northwest on US
Highway 27 near the State
Road 80 intersection, his 2006
Volvo semi truck was in a colli-
sion with a Toyota Corolla driv-
en by. Nathanial Dunnican, 23,
of Ladson, S. C.
The car collided with the
semi's rear bumper, causing
the trailer to shift, said Mr. Jack-
son.


"It hit the trailer so hard it
moved it," said Mr. Jackson.
"When I got down to check
what had happened, I was ter-
rified to see the actual impact,"
he added.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, Mr.
Dunnican was traveling with a
passenger Elizabeth McKenna,
of Sebring. They were heading
northwest on U.S. 27. Accord-
ing to the report, the semi truck
driven by Mr. Jackson was trav-
eling in front of the vehicle driv-
en by Mr. Dunnican when Mr.
Jackson made an improper
lane change into the left turn-
ing lane.

CLEWISTON - Children at
the Harlem Academy Daycare
ventured outside for a fun day
with water last week.
Sprinklers, waterslides and
kiddy pools were just a few of
the items children played with
during the special event at the
Harlem Daycare Center.
The little ones were dressed
in their tiny swimsuits and
seemed to enjoy the event smil-
ing all the while they were get-
ting pretty soaked. Teachers
joined the children and got in on
the action.
"It feels so good to know
your children's daycare center
prepares events of this kind,"
said Ana Rivera, a parent. "Our


children interact with the other
children in a fun way," she
added.
According to Linda Lawson,
the new director of the center, a
lot of things are in store for the
nextyear.
Water Day was planned by
the teachers at the center as a
reward to the children for the
end of the school year, Ms. Law-
son said.
I am very open-minded and
willing to work closely with staff,
in order to make Harlem Acade-

ronment for the children," she
said.

Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
How do you know if it is too hot
to keep your dog outside?
Thanks Doc, Danny in Belle
Glade.
Answer:
Hey Danny!
That is a very
important
question espe-
cially for this
time of the
year.
Heat stroke
is something Doc
we can see all Savvy
year round in vy
Florida, but it is much more
prevalent during the hotter
months of the year. If you keep
your dog outside in the heat, you
must always provide food,
water, shelter and shade - no
matter what the temperature is
outside. Especially when the


temps get into the 80's and
above! If a dog is kept in direct
sun without shade, they more
than likely will develop sun-
stroke. This is a deadly condition
that causes overheating of the
body and brain. Seizures are
likely to develop which can
result in permanent brain dam-
age and even death. Remember,
it is illegal to tie out your dog
during the day in Palm Beach
County. If you keep your dog
outside, it must be in a fenced in
yard or a large well ventilated
and sheltered kennel.
So when is it too hot? Now for
sure, and anytime we are
approaching mid 80's and
above. Only let your dogs for
small periods of full summer
heat at a time.
Hope that helps, Take care,
DocSavvy.

Belle Glade clinic accused of Medicaid Fraud


TALLAHASSEE - On Thurs-
day, May 31, Attorney General Bill
McCollum announced the arrest
of nine south Florida residents for
their role in a multi-county health
care fraud scheme that also
involved criminal racketeering,
money laundering and grand
theft. The arrests were the result
of a joint investigation by the
Attorney General's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit, the Office of
Statewide Prosecution and the
U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services into allegations
of fraudulent Medicaid and
Medicare billing by Belle Glade
Family Health Group, Inc., a Belle
Glade clinic located in western
Palm Beach County.
"This was a sophisticated and


WEST PALM BEACH - With
persistent dry, windy conditions
and high evaporation rates, Lake
Okeechobee water levels have
dropped down to 8.97 feet, match-
ing the historic low set in May 2001.
At the same time, the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) declared an extreme
water shortage order expanding
Phase III water restrictions toall
Lake Okeechobee Service Area
Sub-Basins. The order, signed by
SFWMD Executive Director Carol
Ann Wehle, applies- to the
Lakeshore Perimeter Water Use
Basin, the Caloosahatchee River
Water Use Basin, and portions of
the Indian Prairie and St. Lucie
River Water Use Basins. The Ever-
glades Agricultural Area Water Use
Basin remains under Phase III
restrictions, which were imposed
on April 12, 2007. These basins are
within all or parts of Okeechobee,
Glades, Palm Beach, Lee, Hendry,
Martin and St. Lucie counties.
As the primary back-up water
supply for most South Florida res-
idents, the lake is so low this year
that its waters cannot be used to
replenish the regional supply. Dis-
trict-wide rainfall since Jan. 1,
2007, is 7.46 inches or 55 percent
of average.
"In response to the rapid drop in
Lake Okeechobee's water level, we
are continuing to make the neces-
sary decisions to help stretch water
supplies," said Carol Ann Wehle,
SFWMD Executive Director.
"Tighter restrictions on the use of
lake-connected surface water is
one way to help us better manage
the regional system."
The following new restrictions
became effective at 12:01 a.m.,
Wednesday, May 30.
* Lake Okeechobee Service
Area Phase III mandatory water
use restrictions predominantly


complex organization that clearly
required deliberative thought and
development to carry out its crim-
inal activities, one that required
hard work and determination to
bring to an end," said Attorney
General McCollum. "Whenever
taxpayer-funded programs are
defrauded, our citizens end up
paying the price. This case is an
excellent example of how diligent
investigation and cooperative
efforts can benefit Floridians in
the long run."
Arrested last Thursday were
clinic owner, Hortensia Escoto,
her husband, Ricardo Escoto,
Blanca Marquez, Emelina Mar-
quez, Zoraida Bayon, Maria Pon-
celeon, Dinorah Mateu and Luis
Diaz of Miami-Dade County and


impact agricultural, industrial and
commercial water users in parts of
Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee, Lee,
Martin, St. Lucie and western Palm
Beach counties. They also apply to
residential users whose water
source is Lake Okeechobee - or
any of the surface water canals
recharged by the lake - and
includes utility customers in South
Bay, Belle Glade, Pahokee, Okee-
chobee and Clewiston. North Lee
County Utility service area cus-
tomers are also affected by this
order because they rely on the Olga
Treatment Plant which draws
water from Lake Okeechobee via
the Caloosahatchee River.
* Agricultural water users in
these areas are required to reduce
surface water consumption by 45
percent. Residential users must
limit lawn watering, boat and car
washing to one day per week: Sat-
urdays from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. for odd
numbered addresses; Sundays
from 4 a.m. to 8 a.m. for even-num-
bered addresses.
* Groundwater sources (wells)
are not restricted by this order. The
SFWMD is monitoring conditions
weekly to assess the need for any
further restrictions.
* The use of water for health,
fire, safety and other essential pur-
poses also is not restricted.
Water restrictions in other areas
of the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District remain unchanged at
this time. For additional informa-
tion, residents can call the

Mary Lucey from Pahokee.
The arrests were made by law
enforcement officers with the
Attorney General's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit with assis-
tance from the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office and the Miami-
Dade Police Department.
The investigation revealed that
from October 2004 to October
2005, the defendants ran a sophis-
ticated criminal organization that
fraudulently billed the Medicaid
and Medicare programs for HIV
infusion treatments and drugs.
The investigation further
revealed that the defendants laun-
dered the proceeds of their scam
through a check cashing store, a
durable medical equipment com-
pany and diagnostic center in


Miami-Dade County and a med-
ical transportation company in
Palm Beach County.
They also used these business-
es to provide cover for the organi-
zation's racketeering activities.
Investigators estimate that the
defendants fraudulently billed
more than $5 million to the Med-
icaid and Medicare programs over
a 12-month period.
Eight of the defendants are
being held at the Miami-Dade
County jail awaiting extradition to
Palm Beach County while Ms.
Lucey is being held at the Palm
Beach County jail.

Drought continues despite Barry


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE - The
weekend rainfall was a welcome
sight and every little bit helps.
However, it will take many more
such rains to bring Lake Okee-
chobee up to its average level for
this time of year.
Over the weekend Tropical
Storm Barry dropped an average
of about 2 inches on the Okee-
chobee area.
On May 1, Chip Merriam,
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) deputy execu-
tive director, said that the water
levels are so low that if the area


received 3 feet of rainfall there
would still be a drought.
On May 31 the lake level
dropped to a record low of 8.94
feet.
"There is no joy at this record
breaking event," said Carol Ann
Wehle, SFWMD executive direc-
tor. "As these extreme weather
conditions continue, we are
focused on the challenges ahead
to best protect drinking water
supplies, meet agriculture needs
and safeguard agricultural needs
and safeguard our natural
resources."
A good rain in the upper
Kissimmee Valley would do more


toward raising lake levels than
local rainfall. Only 40 inches of
rain have fallen on that region in
the past 18 months - about half
of average.
As of May 29, only 7 inches of
rain had fallen across South Flori-
da over the last five months,
which is only about one-half the
average.
The weekend rain had little
effect on SFWMD's attempt to
remove muck from the dry lake
bed that has been going on for
several days. Work on hauling the
muck from some of the six sites
around the lake continued Mon-
day, June 4. Officials with SFWMD


have stated that the lake level
would have to rise to 10.5 before
muck removal stops.
Removal of the muck will
uncover the natural sandy lake
bottom and improve water quali-
ty and wildlife habitats.
As of June 1, 15,000 truckloads
of muck had been hauled away
from the dry lake bed.
The record low lake level
caused water managers to tighten
water restrictions in the Lake
Okeechobee area. Agricultural
and residential users have been
asked to cut back on water use, to
conserve as much water as possi-
ble.


Lock schedule changed

for Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District, will begin
a new lock schedule on the W.
P. Franklin and St. Lucie Locks
on the Okeechobee Waterway,
effective Thursday, June 7th
until further notice, due to the
continued decline in water lev-
els on Lake Okeechobee. A
record drought has caused the
water level to fall to a record
low.
* The Franklin and St. Lucie
Locks will lock boats through
only at Noon, with one lockage
in each direction. The locks at
Ortona, Moore Haven and Port
Mayaca will continue to pro-
vide lockage on an unrestricted
basis, between 6 a.m. and 9:30


p.m.
** Conditions will be evalu-
ated on a weekly basis.

WEST PALM BEACH -
Unprecedented drought and
record-breaking water lows have
added up to opportunity for envi-
ronmental restoration on Lake
Okeechobee. Field crews are
working quickly to remove
exposed muck from the dry lake
bed before summer rains and the
hurricane season, which starts
today, bring a slew of storms and
lake levels start to rebound.
"We're working against
time," said Dr. Susan Gray, Direc-
tor of the District's Lake Okee-
chobee Program, "but we want
this job to be completed as
planned, and so far our progress
is steady and impressive. If we
achieve our goals before the
onset of summer rains, we
should see some desired
improvements in wildlife habitat
and water quality."
Since work began last week,
more than 15,000 truckloads of
muck, equaling about 300,000
cubic yards, have been hauled
away from the lake bed. Remov-
ing the muck, laden with nutri-
ents, will prevent 25 tons of phos-
phorus from flowing south into
the Everglades.
Even when significant rainfall
comes, muck removal could be
slowed slightly but will not be
stopped by a few inches of rain%


according to project managers,
who say that heavy, off-road
equipment can handle wet muck
without any trouble. Only if the
lake level rises significantly over
the summer, to about 10.5 feet,
will the work have to stop.
Muck removal will return the
lake bottom to a sandier base,
improving water quality and
restoring wildlife habitat after the
drought ends and lake levels
return to normal. Native plants
and desirable sport fish, such as
bass and crappie, are expected to
thrive when the shoreline habitat
improves. Apple snails, the pri-
mary food source of the federally
endangered snail kite, are also
expected to increase in number.
Phosphorus, a common fertil-
izer ingredient, is found in Lake
Okeechobee muck, and it flows
out of the lake when water levels
are higher. It also impacts the
ecology in Everglades environ-
ment, so six large treatment wet-
lands covering 40,000 acres have
been built to remove it. When the
muck removal project is com-
plete, about 280 tons of phospho-
rus will be gone, equating to
more than 1..5 year's worth of
downstream treatment.
Fires currently burning on dry
areas of the lake bed are not ham-

Dept. of Health to hold 'Bird Flu' exercise


CLEWISTON - The
Hendry/Glades County Health
Department in cooperation with
the local community partners of
these two counties is scheduled to
conduct an Avian Influenza exer-
cise with the activation of a Point
of Dispensing (POD) on June 11.
This simulated exercise will
take place in the Clewiston Coun-
ty Health Department site with the
intent to practice a timely distribu-
tion of available medications to
local residents and visitors in an
effort to prevent or lessen a poten-
tial spread of the Avian Flu H5N1
viral strain.


Avian flu is typically character-
ized by headaches, mild fever and
aching joints. Additional symp-
toms such as: eye infections,
pneumonia, acute respiratory dis-
tress, viral pneumonia and other
severe and life-threatening com-
plications have also been report-
ed. The fever may subside for a
day before it begins to spike. Diffi-
culty breathing and a cough may
occur. Avian flu does not presently
exist in the United States and up to
this point there have been no
human cases with Avian
Flu/H5N 1 in Florida or in any other
State within the United States.


Hendry County Health
Department officials encourage
the community and media to be
aware and expect limited or no
access onto South Olympia
Avenue between West Aztec
Avenue and Arroyo Avenue West
during 8:00 a.m. - noon in
Clewiston, FL due to controlled
traffic flow for the purposes of
this mock exercise. This event
will include the participation of
citizens who registered with the
Hendry/Glades County Health
Department prior to June 1.
Again, this will only be a train-
ing exercise.


For more information about
avian influenza, see the following
websites: www.doh.state.fl.us
(DOH), www.cdc.gov (CDC) or
http://www.who.int/en/rV (WHO).
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes and
protects the health and safety of
our two counties through the
delivery of quality health services
and the promotion of health care
standards. For additional informa-
tion please contact us at any of our
three sites or via our e-mail

the American Red Cross is recog-
nizing the 12 Days of Hurricane

interrupted and special watch
and warning messages are
issued.

On the third day of hurricane

recommends that you purchase a
fire extinguisher. Install A-B-C
type fire extinguishers in the
home and teach all household
members how to use them.
Fourth Day: Plastic Sheeting
On the fourth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase
plastic sheeting. Plastic sheeting is
vital part of a family disaster sup-
plies kit.
Fifth Day: Canned Food

season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
supply of canned food. Store at
least a three-day supply of non-
perishable food.

On the sixth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
generator. A generator can be a


convenient source of power after
a hurricane strikes. Generators
should be properly installed and
used safely.
Seventh Day: Flashlight
On the seventh day of hurri-
cane season the American Red
Cross recommends that you pur-
chase a flashlight. As simple as a
flashlight is, it can become a very
important tool during and after
disaster strikes.
Eighth Day: Family Disaster
Supplies Kit
On the eighth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
complete family disaster supplies
kit. A family will cope best by
preparing for a disaster before it
strikes. One way to prepare is by
assembling a family disaster sup-
plies kit.
Ninth Day: Sleeping Bag
On the ninth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
sleeping bag. If you have to evac-
uate your home, a sleeping bag
will provide you with extra com-
fort when you arrive at an Ameri-
can Red Cross shelter.
10th Day: First Aid Kit
On the 10th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
first aid kit.
11th Day: Hurricane Shutters
On the 11th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase
needed supplies to install hurri-
cane shutters on every window of
the home. Installing hurricane
shutters on all windows of a
home will help to mitigate the
damage due to a storm's severe
winds.
12th Day: Duct Tape
On the 12th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase
duct tape. Duct tape is one of the
many items that should be in a
family disaster supplies kit.

You can use powdered dish
washing soap in a plastic bag for
washing your pet's food and
water bowls. Add an extra tag
and collar in the bag. You will
need a small first aid kit with
items such as iodine, peroxide,
antiseptic wipes, cotton-tips,

* If you know that your pet
becomes overly agitated during a
storm, contact your regular vet-
erinarian to see if he or she rec-
ommends a tranquilizer or some
other way of calming the pet. A


veterinarian will not prescribe
tranquilizers for a pet he or she
has never seen.
* Have a sturdy cage or carri-
er to comfortably hold your pet,
as well as a collar and leash.
* Have all pet vaccinations
up-to-date, and keep records of
these vaccinations in a safe
place.
* Take several good pictures
of your pets in the event you
become separated from them.
You will need the pictures to
identify them later. Place identifi-
cation on the pet's collar or hal-
ter. Some local residents painted
their telephone numbers on their
horses' sides in the event the
horses got out of their pastures.
* On the subject of pastures,
it is advisable to leave your large


animals - such as horses, cows,
goats, etc. - out in their pastures
instead of locked in a barn. Many
animals have died needlessly in
past hurricane seasons because
barns collapsed and trapped
them inside. Make sure that the
fences and gates are in good
repair. Have clean water avail-
able for them. Toss them extra
hay to keep them busy. Purchase
enough feed and medication to
last for two to three weeks fol-
lowing the storm, as feed trucks
may not be able to deliver sup-
plies.
After the storm, check your
pasture. If it is flooded, move the
horses to high ground to prevent
hoof problems. If possible, walk
the pasture to check for any
debris that could injure your ani-


mals. While checking for debris,
also re-check your fences to be
sure that they are still intact.
* If you have aquariums, keep
in mind that when power goes
out the filters, pumps and aera-
tors will not work. Fish can only
go a short time without air in
their water. Make a visit to your
local bait or tackle shop and pur-
chase several fishing aerators.
They normally take two D-sized
batteries for each unit. When
your power goes out, use the aer-
ators in your aquarium. They
saved a great deal of fish over the
past two hurricane seasons.
No matter what you decide to
do with your pets, make your
plans now. Consult your veteri-
narians with any concerns or
questions you may have.

Clewiston once had a zoo I- Im


Editor's note: What did peo-
ple do for entertainment in the
early years around the lake
area? The late Beryl Bowden,
who wrote for the Clewiston
News covered that topic in this
story published December 1983.
The article comes from the
Clewiston Museum's collection
of Beryl Bowden's writings. It
was transcribed by MaryAnn
Morris.
"Near the lakeshore center of
activity in early Clewiston, resi-
dents built a small zoo in which
were several wild animals, many
of them captured nearby. Of spe-
cial interest, was a wildcat
whose cage was next to that of
two small monkeys, known as
Mike and Ike.
"The monkeys were con-
stantly fighting and feuding. One
day Mike, tired of the fight,
forced a small opening, in the
wire and slipped into the cage
with the wildcat. The cat did not
object, so the monkey remained.
"After a day or so, Mike
climbed back through the hole
into his own cage with Ike. But
Ike was not ready to bury the


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





hatchet and the fighting began
anew. However, this time it was
Ike who slipped through the
hole into the wildcat's cage.
Again, the cat did not object.
This became a pattern of life
for the animals; either monkey
could enjoy the company of the
wildcat, but if the other monkey
intruded, the first monkey would
slip back into the empty cage.
"The Moore Haven newspa-
per printed a little story about
the unusual behavior of the ani-
mals. It attracted the attention of
Harrison Fuller, editor of the Fort
Myers Press, who made the long,
rough journey to Clewiston to
see for himself.'He spent several
hours at the zoo and was con-


vinced the absurd story was
true.
"Wild animals find a way to
settle their differences. Perhaps
humans can learn a lesson from
them."
"Zoo watching provided early
residents with a mild form of
recreation, then other activities
soon followed with participants
and spectators joining to relieve
the tedium of work and idle
hours in a rather isolated com-
munity.
"The earliest sport for which
any local preparation was made
seems to be boxing, which was
popular in the South Florida area
at the time. An outdoor ring was
constructed near the lakeshore.
Boxers from other towns also
came occasionally to challenge
the local fighters and the bouts
attracted a good audience.
Young men, even high school
students, trained and practiced
on their own initiative. Some of
these were Smiley Williams,
Pete Doub, Earl Dyess, Eddie
Bronson, Hooky Avant, George
Waldron, J.E. Davidson and Bill
Snell."


Rudd reunion brings family together


GLADES COUNTY - The
Rudd family held a reunion on
May 26, at the Indian Mound Park
in Ortona.
Approximately 100 people
attended as well as several million
love bugs! People traveled from
Orlando, Bokeelia, Winter Gar-
den, Okeechobee, St. Petersburg,
Clewiston, Moore Haven and as
far away as Delaware.
The Rudd family lived on Lake
Okeechobee in the late 1800s.
They survived the 1928 hurricane
even though the family home at
Utopia was destroyed. They were
among some of the first commer-
cial fishermen on Lake Okee-
chobee. Theirs is a story of perse-
verance and survival.
The family enjoyed lots of
good food and sharing of news.
They are currently compiling a
family history book.
The oldest Rudd at the reunion
was William T. "Dick" Rudd who
will turn 90 this year and is the last
survivor of a family of 12 children.

Wildfire

smoke may be

harmful
Due to the recent wildfires
affecting the state, the Florida
Department of Health is providing
health recommendations to citi-
zens impacted by wildfire smoke.
Smoke is a respiratory irritant, and
can cause a scratchy throat, and/or
irritated eyes and nose. Smoke may
also worsen conditions such as
asthma and other chronic respira-
tory or lung conditions.
Some steps you can take to pro-
tect yourself and your family from
the health effects of smoke include:
* Be your own health judge. If
you can see smoke outside or you
feel the effects of the smoke,
avoid prolonged outdoor activi-
ties. It is especially important to
limit time spent outdoors for chil-
dren and persons with existing
medical conditions.
* Stay indoors whenever possi-
ble. Run your air conditioner with a
clean filter and the fresh air intake
closed, to prevent additional
smoke from entering your home. If
you don't have an air conditioner
and are a comfortable temperature
inside with the windows closed,
stay inside. If your home is too
warm, seek alternative shelter.
* Keep particle levels inside
your house lower by not smoking
tobacco or using anything that
burns, such as wood fireplaces, gas
logs, gas stoves and candles.

By Loma Jablonski.
INI FLORIDA
Since the hurricanes of 2004
and 2005, we have learned how
much we depend on electricity in
our daily lives. Without electricity
we quickly learned first hand what
it was like to live in Florida prior to
Edison inventing the light bulb. Oil
lamps, candles and flashlights were
worth their weight in gold.
Unless you were lucky enough
to have a gas stove, cooking had to
be done on a grill. It's amazing
what can be cooked on a gas or
charcoal grill.
Those of us living in the country
were quickly reminded that with-
out power our well pumps were
worthless. So we bathed in our
swimming pools, ponds and even
ditches. There were people clean-
ing up in the flooded parking lot of
North Lake Plaza.
In true pioneer fashion, we
lugged 5-gallon buckets of water
into our bathrooms to flush the
toilets.
We became experts on how
long a bag of ice could keep food
cold. Even more importantly, we
became our grandparents - wait-
ing in long lines for food, water and
ice like they did during the Great
Depression.
Having been through all of this,
many residents of Okeechobee
decided that "enough is enough."
What we endured in the past has
educated us as to what we need to
have to be truly prepared for the
upcoming hurricane season.
Other than packing up and get-
ting out of the path of an upcom-
ing hurricane, the consensus of
opinion in Okeechobee is that
one of the most important items
on a hurricane preparedness list is
a generator.
With generators so high on
everyone's list, now is, the time to
purchase one if you haven't already
done so. The supply of generators
for sale in Okeechobee is currently
high. They are for sale in most local
stores. If you do purchase a new
unit, do not leave it in its box until
needed. Take it out of its box and
familiarize yourself with the unit.
Test it to make sure it works.
Follow the instructions in the
manual that came with the unit. If
you cannot get the generator to
operate properly, now is the time to
have it serviced. You will not be
able to have it worked on right
before an impending storm.
Local stores are already stocked
with hurricane supplies.
With all the generators being
purchased, it is extremely impor-
tant to use caution when operating
them. Generators can create haz-
ards for homeowners and electric
utility workers. Make sure to always
read and follow the manufacturer's
safety and operating instructions.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless,
odorless and tasteless poison gas. It
is a component of the exhaust from
a generator's engine. This gas is
deadly. Never run your generator
inside your home or garage. Only
run the generator outdoors in a
well-ventilated, dry area away from
the air intakes to your home.
Plug your individual appliances
into the generator using a heavy.
duty, outdoor rated extension cord
with a wire gauge adequate for the
appliance load. Do not operate
more appliances and equipment
than the output rating of the gener-
ator; to do so will overload and
damage the generator and could
cause a fire.
If your generator is connected to
the house wiring, the home must
have a transfer switch installed by a
licensed electrician. A transfer
switch connects your house to the
generator and disconnects it from
the utility power. This will prevent
backfeeding, which energizes the
electrical circuits outside your
home.


Backfeeding usually occurs
when a generator is connected
directly to the electric panel or cir-
cuit in the home. Feeding power
back into the utility system during
an outage will energize the trans-
former serving the house and
could pose a serious problem to
crews working to restore power in
the area.
Use the following guide as a
rule of thumb when purchasing a
generator.
* A 1,000 watt recreational gen-
erator is for boating, camping and
limited outdoor use.
* A 5,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump and
microwave up to the capacity of
the unit.
* A 7,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump,
microwave and other various low
watt electrical devices up to the
capacity of the unit.
* A 12,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump,
microwave and other various low
watt electrical devices up to the
capacity of the unit.
In case you are not sure how
much wattage you use, the fol-
lowing guide has some of the
more common household electri-
cal appliances and their wattage.
The RW is the running wattage or
amount of wattage required to
run the appliance, and the SW is
the starting wattage, or the
amount of wattage required to
start the appliance.

6,500;-Air conditioners - 40,000 btu
(RW) 6,000, (SW) 7,800.
Always check the amount of
wattage the appliance requires
before plugging it into a generator.
If the box of paperwork of the
appliance does not list the wattage,
the formula to figure wattage is:
amps x volts = watts.
As you can see, it is important to
choose the size of generator that is
right for you. It is also important to
only use those appliances that are
absolutely necessary for your basic
needs.
Generators are not meant to
totally take the place of the electric
company. They are meant to pro-
vide temporary basic electricity to
your home until power can be
restored.
Finally, don't forget that genera-
tors run on gasoline. Make sure that
you have enough gasoline to keep
the generator running for an
extended period of time. The
largest generator you can purchase
will do you no good without fuel to
run it. Read the instructions for
your generator to ascertain how
long the generator will run on a 5-
gallon can of gas.
Keep in mind, that if the power
is out in town, the gas stations can-
not pump gasoline. So, have
enough on hand to last several
days.

Nit-pickers, wound lickers, or grace sticklers


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Out of the same situation,
there can be entirely different
reactions among people. Some-
one once classified the reactions
of people in these situations as
being nit-pickers, wound-lickers,
or grace-sticklers.
Anyone who has ever had to
deal with a child coming home
with a note proclaiming the pres-
ence of head lice knows the
phrase "nit-picking". The head
must be combed through and
meticulously combed, searched
for nits or tiny eggs of the louse.
When found, each nit must be
individually picked or pulled from
the hair it is attached to.
Unfortunately, many people
have perfected the art of nit-pick-


ing so competently that they feel
compelled to demonstrate their
skill in every situation they can.
Nit-pickers are
always noting
what is wrong
with some-
thing and
someone
rather than
what is right.
They have a
hard time
enjoying any- John
thing, especial- Hicks
ly anything that
isn't as perfect as they think it
should be.
An accomplished nit-picker
can burst any bubble or rain on
any parade. "Congratulations on
your graduation, such a shame
you couldn't have lost a few
pounds for the occasion."


"Thanks for preparing breakfast -
I guess this is coffee I'm pouring -
when I make coffee you can taste
it." Deflating joy, tarnishing tri-
umphs - that's what nit-pickers do
best.
And then there are the wound-
lickers: In dogs and cats, repetitive
wound-licking can undo in a mat-
ter of minutes all the work a vet
has put in on a patient for days.
But wound-licking is not just limit-
ed to animals. There is something
self-destructively fascinating
about an open wound. We are
drawn to it, we want to mess with
it, re-examine it, then pull off the
scab a little at a time to see how it
is healing. Wound-lickers cannot
leave the situation alone, but
return to it again and again, often
reopening the wound.
In the midst of nit-pickers and
wound-lickers, there are also the


grace-sticklers. These are the peo-
ple that celebrate victories and
lend support in times of defeat.
You will notice that they hoot and
holler when their child's T-ball
team plays the big game and
don't worry when the other team
scores 10 runs in a row. They tend
to give out hugs of joy in celebra-
tion and hugs of comfort in hard
times. It's not that they don't see
all of the imperfections in life; it's
just that grace sticks out in their
lives and enables them to focus
on the positives around them and
not the negatives.
In our lives as Christians we
have a choice on how we act and
react. Someone once shared that
life is, "Ten percent of what hap-
pens to us and 90 percent of how
we react to it." How we act and
react can also change how others
act and react.


Gifts and staying in our fields; religious and otherwise


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
One person whom I met dur-
ing a phase of her illness called
me one day when she had got-
ten out of the hospital. She
shared with me that "My doctor
thinks I'm an alcoholic, but you
don't think I'm ,
an alcoholic,
do you?" The
way she asked
the question
told me the
answer she
wanted. I had
only recently
met her; her
doctor had SamuelS.
been treating Thomas
her for years.
I happened to know the doc-
tor also; a man with a good rep-
utation in the community and
with great skills. I felt myself
being pulled in a direction that I
did not want to go. More than
that, I felt there was a person
who wanted to use religion for
her own selfish ends; use reli-
gion to avoid facing up to reality;
use religion to retreat from
health into sickness, going back-
ward instead of forward. When
this happens, religion becomes
a crutch, an excuse, destructive.
The inspiration for an answer


came and I countered, "Now
why would he ever think a thing
like that?" and began to think
about a long list of occasions
over the years that the doctor
would have known, times when
he might have been called out
during an episode of one sort or
another, the symptoms, the con-
cerns of family and loved ones.
The attempt seemed to be to be
able to say, "You may think I'm
an alcoholic but Reverend
Thomas doesn't think so."
Too many times people speak
in the name of religion, those
identified as religious leaders
included, who are out of their
field. They can do a lot of dam-
age when their words are justi-
fied by obscure quotations or
attempts to "do good" that are
misguided.
I listen to many today who
speak outside of their fields of
expertise and wonder what
movie stars know about politics,
or athletes know about nutri-
tion, or clergy know about sick-
ness and health, or about
experts in "rehab" know about
social responsibility.
Scriptures speak of "gifts"
that come from God: apostles-
prophets-teachers but also those
who have gifts of healing, those
who have gifts of being able to
help others, those with gifts of
administration (1 Corinthians


12:28). They are all regarded as
being in the Church; but their
expertise is a gift from God and
to be used to help others.
Problems arise when the less-
gifted speak in areas where they
are really not experts but claim
their authority because they
somehow feel called and thus
"gifted."
One day when I attended a
conference on healing, the pre-
senter told us about her praying;
laying hands on people and see-
ing them healed. Then she
added, "God can heal teeth too."
I wondered if she would want to
put her hands in a mouth, lay
her fingers on teeth or if she
washed her hands first, if she
really tried it. Then I thought
about the one who lays hands
on my teeth, whose father was a
minister, who grew up in a
household of faithful people,
who attends church and attend-
ed dental school. He has a gift. It
is from God He uses his gifts to.
do God's work and helps where
he is trained and prepared to
help, but knows his limits. Thus,
he can contribute to the greatest
good; doing his part and letting
others do their parts. His gift is in
healing, as the accountant is gift-
ed in helping businesses stay in
business and honestly reflecting
a state of affairs, as a judge
works to protect society and be
fair to those who come before

him, as a conservationist is in
making sure we have the
resources necessary for survival.
They are called to speak and act
where they know; this is a gift
from God even if it is not always
acknowledged.
The people of God are also
called to speak and act; making
use of all of the gifts God makes
available to us whether in the
Church or without. When we
get it straight, we move forward
and are blessed; when we get it
wrong, we sure can cause a ter-
rible mess.

We have a chance to help peo-
ple focus on the blessings of grace
even in the hardships of life. Our
lives need to be tunnels and not
caves. A cave is an underground
area where one goes in and
comes out at the same place. A
tunnel, on the other hand, is
where one goes in and comes out
in a different place. If those we
come into contact with always
leave from their meeting with us
at the same place they went in,
then something is wrong.


Our actions and reactions in
the life we live need to help lead
people in the direction of the light
- knowing that the light at the
end of every tunnel is the light of
Christ. In the light of Christ, the
nit-pickers can be silenced and
satisfied. The wounds that the
wound-lickers tend to focus on
can be healed and made whole.
And all of us can come to more
fully realize the abundant wealth
of great things we share in the
grace of Christ Jesus our Lord.

1ow when you teach a child? Area Church News in Brief


"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for
this is right. Honor thy father and mother; which
is the first commandment with promise; that it
may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long
on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your
children to wrath; but bring them up in the nur-
ture and admonition of the Lord."
- Ephesians 6:1-4


would rather have weeds in it."
Friends, the weeds will grow in
your child's heart unbidden.
"Foolishness is bound up in the


heart of a child," says Solomon. It
is never too soon to root them out
and plant good seeds instead and
to cultivate the good growth.


Cleaning up the muck
On Wednesday, May 30, Lake Okeechobee tied the record low of 8.97 feet. It has been
dropping since, setting new record lows. The low lake level has exposed many areas of
,the lake bottom; allowing water managers to scrape muck from the dry lake bottom and
haul it off. The dried muck is being spreading on public and privately owned properties.


When weeds get a start, it is often
too late to do anything.
Jesus in the parable of the
sower said the good seed is the
Word of God. He said the seed
sown by the wayside is snatched
away by Satan before it has time to
bear fruit. The seed sown on soil
that has no depth will not bear fruit
for during times of trial it has no
roots to supply it with enough
strength to live and bear fruit.
"The seed sown among the
weeds is the seed sown into a heart
that is full of this world's cares and
riches and the seed is choked to
death by these cares and riches and
does not bear any fruit." The good
soil that receives the good seed is
the heart that understands the
Word of God and acts upon it and
bears much fruit. As you can see
there are plenty of distractions in
this world to keep the good seed
from getting into young hearts and
causing youth to realize their true
purpose is to glorify God.
For this reason our Heavenly
Father holds fathers and mothers
responsible for the upbringing of
their children. Ephesians 6:1-4
says, "Children, obey your parents
in the Lord, for this is right. Honor
thy father and mother; which is
the first commandment with
promise; that it may be well with
thee, and thou mayest live long on
the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke
not your children to wrath; but
bring them up in the nurture and
admonition of the Lord."
Parents need to sow and nur-
ture early the good seed, the
Word of God. Remember, the
Bible says that what you sow is
what you reap.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
With the start of the 2007 hurri-
cane season, the Palm Beach
County Consumer Affairs Divi-
sion is rushing to complete its
annual survey of the costs for
the "most used" commodities
should a storm threaten.
To assist in the enforcement
of the County's "Price Gouging"
Ordinance, the Consumer
Affairs Division conducts price
checks at local retailers to estab-
lish benchmark costs for numer-
ous items and services most
likely to be in high demand in
the event of a hurricane. With an
emergency declaration, the Con-
sumer Affairs Division is respon-
sible for enforcing the local ordi-
nance preventing excessive or
exorbitant charges for consumer
goods and services.
With the recent visits of
Frances, Jeanne and Wilma,
more attention was given to the
prices of generators, tarps, chain
saws, plywood and roof felt. The


division also is gathering the cur-
rent prices for services by stor-
age rentals, hotels and marinas
providing boat dry storage. The
surveys are conducted just prior
to the hurricane season.
The division surveys chain
stores, independent retailers and
both large and small businesses.
The stores surveyed represent
all regions of the county includ-
ing the Glades area.
Palm Beach County Con-
sumer Affairs cooperates with
both Broward and Miami-Dade
Counties in tracking the same
commodities for all of south
Florida. Should a state of emer-
gency be declared and price
gouging is suspected, residents
should -contact -PBC Consumer-
Affairs at (561) 712-6600. More
information about price gouging
and essential hurricane links is
available at the division's Web
site: www.pbcgov.com/con-
sumer.


Economic development gets boost from grants


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Community Affairs
today announced that it has award-
ed $1.4 million to two local govern-
ments in Hendry County to bring
new employers and jobs to area
residents. The grants, awarded by
the state through a competitive
process, will enable the communi-
ties to attract a mattress manufac-
turing facility and a medical profes-
sional complex that combined will
create an estimated 100 new jobs.
The funds, provided through the
Small Cities Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG) pro-
gram, will be used for infrastruc-
ture and more than half the newly
created jobs must go to workers
from low or moderate income
households. For the mattress man-
ufacturing facility, a $700,000 grant
to the City of Clewiston will provide


infrastructure in the form of street
improvements and associated
flood and drainage improvements.
Meanwhile, a $700,000 grant to the
City of LaBelle will provide neces-
sary water, sewer and street
improvements for a medical pro-
fessional complex that will house
an expanding dental practice.
"These facilities will be a
tremendous benefit to the people
of Hendry County and the sur-
rounding areas, producing jobs
while at the same time helping to
keep our communities safe and
our environment clean," said Com-
munity Affairs Secretary Tom Pel-
ham. "I am pleased that the CDBG
program can make such an impor-
tant difference in the lives of resi-
dents of these two communities."
The grant to the City of Clewis-
ton will fund a portion of the infra-


structure supporting the construc-
tion of an $8.5-million mattress
'manufacturing facility within the
city's new industrial park. The
62,500-square foot facility is being
built by PranaSleep LLC, a sub-
sidiary of City Mattress, which has
eleven retail locations in the south-
ern part of the state. The manufac-
turing facility will employ an esti-
mated 80 people. Clewiston Mayor
Mali Chamness expressed the
city's appreciation for the grant,
saying, "This is a great success and
we are excited about the econom-
ic impact Pranasleep brings to our
community. Their presence will
have a positive effect on our ability
to create many good paying jobs
within our new Clewiston Com-
merce Park and ultimately
improve the local economy in this
region for years to come."


The grant to the City of LaBelle
will be used to extend water and
sewer lines to the site of the
LaBelle Professional Center. The
$2.6-million facility will employ
an estimated 21 individuals pro-
viding medical services for
LaBelle and Hendry County. In a
recent letter to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA), Mayor Randal A. Bengston
said, "I would like to thank you in
advance for your continuous
efforts to provide funds to erect
the LaBelle Professional Center...
.Your program will provide need-
ed employment for our residents,
as well as (meet) the great need
for additional health care for our
citizens and visitors to the City of
LaBelle and Hendry County."

Hurricane Names


Since 1953, the National Hur-
ricane Center has designated
major storms by giving them
names. Prior to that time, storms
were referred to by date. Until
1979, only female names were
used. Since then, the Center
alternates male and female
names. The first storm of the
season starts with the letter A,
the second storm the letter B and
so on. The list skips the letters Q,
U, X,Y and Z.
Six lists of names are used to
rotate. Sometimes if a storm is
devastating, names are retired
from the list, out of considera-
tion for families of those killed in
a storm.

Supplies are tax free until June 12


TALLAHASSEE - Floridians
can buy hurricane supplies tax-
free now through June 12, 2007.
"I urge all Floridians to take
advantage of the Hurricane Pre-
paredness Sales Tax Holiday so
that every person is prepared for
the possibility of a storm," said
Governor Charlie Crist. "We have
learned from experience that pre-
pared residents and communities
are key to surviving and recover-
ing from hurricanes or other natu-
ral disasters."
"As public awareness of this
tax holiday continues to grow, we
are encouraging Florida retailers
to prepare for even greater
demand than last year," said Gov-
ernor Crist. "While we hope for a
quiet hurricane season, the tax


holiday will help give Floridians
the opportunity to be prepared for
any possibility."
Governor Crist encouraged all
Floridians to update their disaster
plans and to use the tax holiday
during the first days of June as an
opportunity to restock their disas-
ter supply kits. Chris Floyd of the
American Red Cross attended the
bill signing and displayed exam-
ples of tax exempt items. Below
are a few examples of items that
will be exempt during the sales
tax holiday:
* Flashlights and other
portable, self-powered light
sources- $20 or less;
* Portable radios, two-way
radios and weather-band radios -
$75 or less;


Plan ahead for hurricane watches


A hurricane WATCH is issued
when hurricane conditions are
possible within the next 24 to 36
hours.
A hurricane WARNING is
issued when hurricane conditions
will occur within 24 hours.
When a hurricane
watch is issued:
* Listen to local radio and tele-
vision stations for possible evacu-
ations and hurricane information
from the National Weather Ser-
vice.
* Gather and check your
emergency supplies.
* Check medical supplies, first
aid kits and refill prescriptions.
* Place commonly used tools
in a safe, easily accessible place.
* Freeze as much water as you
can. This will help keep your
refrigerator cold if the power is


out for several days.
* Have two weeks of pet sup-
plies on hand.
* Make sure your vehicles are
full of gasoline.
* Bring in loose outdoor
objects such as lawn furniture,
toys and tools. Anchor objects
that cannot be brought indoors.
* Turn your refrigerator and
freezer to the coldest settings.
* Clean your bathtub, seal the
drain with silicone caulk and fill it
with water.
* Store valuables, a list of your
possessions and insurance
papers in awaterproof container.
* Protect your home by board-
ing up the windows.
* Remove any outside anten-
nas.
* Moor your boat or move it to
a designated safe place.
* Review your evacuation
plans and be ready to evacuate as


soon as possible.

warning is issued:
* Listen to local radio and tele-
vision stations for evacuation
information and hurricane state-
ments from the National Weather
Service.
* If you live in a mobile home
or flood prone area evacuate
immediately.
* Unplug all major appliances
and turn off the electricity, water
and gas before leaving.
* Tell someone outside of the
storm area where you are going.
* Lock your home.
If you do not
evacuate:
* Stay inside your home away
from windows and doors.


* Keep flashlights and extra
batteries with you at all times.
* If the power goes out, turn
off major appliances.
* Listen to local radio for hur-
ricane information from the
National Weather Service.
* Do not go outside if the eye
of the storm passes over you.
* Stay indoors until the storm
has passed.
* Once you do venture out-
doors, beware of fallen electrical
wires, hurricane debris and high
water. Stay off the roads. Many
will not be safe. Roads should be
kept clear of traffic so that emer-
gency vehicles can get through.
* Continue to listen to your
battery-powered radio or televi-
sion for advice from your local
emergency management offi-
cials.


* Tarps- $50 or less;
* Gas or diesel fuel containers

Make plans to prepare boat in event of storm


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
With the start of the 2007 hur-
ricane season upon us, now is
the time to start making plans to
safeguard your boat. A few min-
utes of preparation now could
save you thousands of dollars
and prevent a great deal of stress
in the event that we are hit with
a hurricane this season.
The following instructions
are only guidelines and may not
apply to every individual situa-
tion. The important thing to
remember is to keep calm and
use good judgment.
* Gather all documents per-
taining to your boat including
insurance policies, a recent pic-
ture of your boat, the boat regis-
tration, an inventory of equip-
ment and a copy of the lease
agreement if the boat is stored at


a marina or storage facility. Keep
these documents in a safe place.
Have telephone numbers of the
marina, storage facility and
insurance agent readily avail-
able.
* Keep a list of all items you
remove from the boat prior to
the storm. Include, if possible,
the make, model and original
cost of the equipment. Make
note of where you are storing
this equipment. Keep another
list of items that will remain on
the boat.
* If you plan to move your
boat to safer ground, be sure to
check the tires, bearings and
axle on your trailer now. Have
everything in working order.
* Know approximately how
long it will take to move the boat
and secure it. Remember, traffic
will be heavy and supplies will

chobee was destroyed by Hurricane Frances shortly after
the storm made landfall on Sept. 4, 2004.


be at a premium prior to a hurri-
cane. If you are planning to
move the boat, give yourself
ample time to do so. If you-are
keeping it at home, you will
need time to prepare it while
also preparing your home for
the storm. Do not cut yourself
short on time. Have the materi-
als to secure the boat on hand.
You may not be able to purchase
them if a storm is coming.
Once you move the boat to
safe ground or if you are keeping
it at home on its trailer, you
should:
* Lash your boat to the trailer
and place blocks between the
frame members and the axle
inside each wheel. Owners of
lightweight boats might want to
consider letting about half the
air out of the tires, then filling
the boat one-third full of water
to help hold it down. The blocks
between the frame and axle will
prevent damage to the springs
from the additional weight of the
water.
* Tie your boat with heavy
lines to fixed objects, Pick a
location that allows you to tie it
from all four directions, because
hurricane winds rotate and
change direction. It can be tied
down to screw anchors secured
into the ground. Do not tie it to a
tree. As we found out last sum-
mer, even the sturdiest looking
trees can be blown down during
a hurricane.
If you intend to keep your
boat in the water, the following
should be adhered to:
* If your boat is kept at a


marina berth or behind your
home in the water and you
intend to leave it there, double
all lines and rig crossing spring
lines fore and aft. Attach lines
high on pilings to allow for tidal
rise or surge. Make sure lines
will not slip off pilings. Inspect
pilings and choose those that
seem strongest and tallest and
are properly installed. The
longer the dock lines, the better
a boat will be a coping with high
tides. It is important to double
up on all lines and use chafe pro-
tectors at any potential chafe
points.
* Cover all lines at rough
points to prevent chafing. Wrap
with tape, rags and rubber
hoses. Install fenders to protect
the boat from rubbing against
the pier, pilings and other boats.
* Remove all moveable
equipment such as canvas, sails,
dinghies, radios, cushions,
biminis and roller furling sails.
Lash down everything you can-
not remove such as tillers,
wheels, booms, etc.
* Assess the attachment of
cleats, winches and chocks.
These should have substantial
back plates and adequate stain-
less steel bolt sizes.
* Batteries should be fully.
charged and checked to ensure
their capability to run automatic
bilge pumps for the duration of
the storm. Consider backup bat-
teries. Cut off all devices using
electricity except bilge pumps.
* Never leave a boat on davits
or on a hydro-lift.

Prepare for hurricanes by stocking up on supplies


With the start of hurricane sea-
son, people are starting to think
seriously about stocking up on sup-
plies and which supplies are neces-
sary.
Below is a list of must haves,
along with tips on storage.
Prepare a hurricane supply kit in
plastic containers with lids so they
will be portable yet easy to store.
Make a checklist of necessary items
and keep it handy with the contain-
ers. Recommended items to have
ready, according to the Southern
Region Headquarters of National
Oceanic & Atmospheric Adminis-
tration, (NOAA) include:
* cash or travelers checks;
* lantern with extra fuel;
* first aid kit with bandages,
scissors, petroleum jelly, antiseptic
spray, hydrogen peroxide, antacids,
aspirin, thermometer, rubbing
alcohol and anti-diarrhea medica-
tion;
* matches;
* mosquito repellent;
* food and supplies (at least a
three-day supply): drinking water
(1 gal/person/day), food (canned
or dried requiring no cooking or
refrigeration), manual can opener,
disposable eating utensils and
plates;


This hurricane season has many
homeowners scrambling to gather
supplies and prepare their house
for strong winds and pelting rains.
But even if the house appears
untouched, the rain and moisture
could have left a prime environ-
ment for mold. "Good House"
expert Matt Shipley provides tips
and advice on how to increase
awareness of the mold-vulnerable
areas on a roof and how to prevent
these areas from allowing excess
moisture into a home.
Orlando - Last year's hurri-
cane season left many houses
and buildings in rubble and
caused many more to be shut
down from increased levels of
mold growing inside. Unfortu-
nately, even after extensive
repairs, many of these buildings
will face the same moisture and
mold problems again this year.
Most of the water-vulnerable
areas on a house or building are
located on its roof. Taking a proac-
tive approach to guard against
wind-driven rain in the seven areas
on a roof and exterior of a house
will help reduce the amount of


Why Horse Owners
Need to Be Prepared

Disaster preparedness is impor-
tant for all animals, but it takes
extra consideration for horses
because of their size and their
transportation needs. It is impera-
tive that you are prepared to move
your horses to a safe area.
During an emergency, the time
you have to evacuate your horses
will be limited. With an effective
emergency plan, you may have
enough time to move your horses
to safety. If you are unprepared or
wait until the last minute to evacu-
ate, you could be. told by emer-
gency management officials that
you must leave your horses behind.
Once you leave your property, you
have no way of knowing how long
you will be kept out of the area. If
left behind, your horses could be
unattended for days without care,
food, or water.
Horse Evacuation Tips
* Make arrangements in
advance to have your horse trail-
ered in case of an emergency. If you
do not have your own trailer or do
not have enough trailer space for all
of your horses, be sure you have
several people on standby to help
evacuate your horses.
* Know where you can take
your horses in an emergency evac-
uation. Make arrangements with a
friend or another horse owner to
stable your horses if needed.
* Contact your local animal
care and control agency, agricul-
tural extension agent, or local
emergency management authori-
ties for information about shelters
in your area.
* Inform friends and neighbors
of your evacuation plans.
* Post detailed instructions in
several places-including the barn
office or tack room, the horse trail-
er, and barn entrances-to ensure
they are accessible to emergency
workers in case you are not able to
evacuate your horses yourself.
* Place your horses' Coggins
tests, veterinary papers, identifica-
tion photographs, and vital informa-
tion-such as medical history, aller-
gies, and emergency telephone
numbers (veterinarian, family
members, etc.) in a watertight enve-
lope. Store the envelope with your
other important papers in a safe
place that can be quickly reached.


* hygiene items: soap (hand
sanitizer), personal hygiene items,
towelettes or paper towels, plastic
trash bags;
* documents: important tele-
phone numbers, bank books or
account numbers, legal docu-
ments (family records of birth, mar-
riage, death, will, insurance, con-
tracts, deeds, etc.), credit card
numbers and companies, pass-
port, social security cards, immu-
nization records, computer infor-
mation, family pictures, household
goods inventory;
* flashlight for each person with
extra batteries;
* tarp (for temporary roof
repair);
* tools and repair supplies:
hammer, nails, ax, knife, pliers,
handsaw, screwdrivers, heavy
gloves;
* sunglasses and sunscreen;
* baby supplies: formula, bot-
tles, powdered milk, diapers, med-
ication;
* pet supplies: food, leash and
carrier, vaccination records, food
and water containers.

excess water and moisture allowed
in during the upcoming hurricane
and rainy season.
"Good House" expert Matt
Shipley suggests leak guarding all
areas on the exterior of your house.
By reducing the number of areas
that water has to gain access to a
house, the chances of creating an
environment friendly to mold sig-
nificantly decreases.
"Although every house has
mold spores, they need the right
conditions in order to thrive," said
Mr. Shipley. "Mold requires a food
source, the right temperature and
moisture in order to grow into cata-
strophic proportions that put insur-
ance and homebuilding compa-
nies out of business and drive
homeowners from their homes."
The seven most vulnerable
areas on the exterior include:
* Roof crickets
* Roof valleys
* Ridge vents
* Roof rakes to sidewalls
* Roofs to walls
* Housewraps or drainage planes
* Window flashings


* Keep halters ready for your
horses. Each halter should include
the following information: the
horse's name, your name, your
telephone number, and another
emergency telephone number
where someone can be reached.
* Prepare a basic first aid kit
that is portable and easily acces-
sible.
There may be times when tak-
ing your horses with you is impos-
sible during an emergency. So you
must consider different types of dis-
asters and whether your horses
would be better off in a barn or
loose in a field. Your local humane
organization, agricultural exten-
sion agent, or local emergency
management agency may be able
to provide you with information
about your community's disaster
response plans.


The Red Cross website recom-
mends folding beach chairs for
sleeping in case you need to go to a
shelter. For more, visit their website
at www.redcross.org.
The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's website hosts a consumer
alert for keeping food safe during
and after a weather emergency that
was posted ahead of the 2004 hur-
ricane -season. The information
was made available to help reduce
the potential of foodborne illness
due to food spoilage from power
outages and other problems asso-
ciated with severe weather events.
Steps they recommend for food
safety include the following:
* Keep an appliance ther-
mometer in the refrigerator and
freezer to help determine the safety
of food.
* Make sure the freezer is at or
below 0 degrees F and refrigerator
is at or below 40 degrees F.
* Freeze containers of water to
help keep food cold in the freezer,
refrigerator or coolers if the power
goes out.
* Freeze refrigerated items such


as leftovers, milk and fresh meat
and poultry that are not needed
immediately to keep them at a safe
temperature longer.
* Plan ahead and know where
dry ice and block ice can be pur-
chased.
* Store food on shelves safely
out of the way of contaminated
water in case of flooding.
* Have coolers on hand to keep
refrigerated food cold if power is
out more than four hours.
Make/get ice cubes and gel packs
ahead of time for use in coolers.
* Group food together in the
freezer. This helps the food stay
cold longer.
After the weather emergency:
* Keep refrigerator and freezer
doors closed as much as possible
to maintain the cold temperature.
* The refrigerator will keep
unopened food safely cold for
about four hours. A full freezer will
hold the temperature for about 48
hours - 24 hours if it is half-full
and door stays closed.
* Food may be safely refrozen if
it still contains ice crystals or is at 40


degrees F or below.
* Never taste food to determine
its safety!
* Obtain dry or block ice to
keep refrigerator and freezer as
cold as possible if the power is
going to be out for a prolonged
period of time. Fifty pounds of dry
ice should hold an 18-cubic-foot
full freezer for two days.
* If the power has been out for
several days, check the tempera-
ture of the freezer with an appli-
ance or food thermometer. If the
food still contains ice crystals or is
at 40 degrees F or below, the food
should be safe.
* If a thermometer has not
been kept in the freezer, check
each package of food to determine
its safety. If the food still contains ice
crystals, the food should be safe.
* Discard refrigerated perish-
able food such as meat, poultry,
fish, soft cheese, milk, eggs, left-
overs and deli items after four
hours without power.
* Drink only bottled water if
flooding has occurred.
* Discard all food that came in


Firic c�,t rycwc-


contact with flood water, including
canned goods.
* Discard wooden cutting
boards, plastic utensils, baby bottle
nipples, and pacifiers.
* Thoroughly wash all metal
pans, ceramic dishes and utensils
that came in contact with flood
water with hot soapy water and
sanitize by boiling them in clean
water or by immersing them for 15
minutes in a solution of chlorine
bleach per quart of water.
* WHEN IN DOUBT, THROW
ITOUT!
