Jail expansion is necessary


Sheriff Lee: "We are
facing a crisis."

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY Hen-
dry County Sheriff Ronnie Lee
expressed concern during the
last Hendry County Commission
meeting that the jail is beyond
capacity, with male and female
inmates forced to sleep on the
floors of the facility.
The sheriff spoke candidly
about the situation during his


comments on July 10, telling
commissioners that the 190-bed
jail currently is keeping 238 in-
mates an all-time high.
The 203 men and 38 women,
*he said, are having to squeeze in
together to make room, and his
fear is that the jail cannot con-
tain a single inmate more.
"We have no place to go any--
more," Sheriff Lee said. "We've
got people stacked up and on
the floor, and that just causes
some confrontations between
inmates."
He did not mince words.
"Thepopulation levels in the


jail just keeps going up," said the
sheriff. "We are facing a crisis."
At that time, the sheriff ex-
plained that only 43 inmates
out of the entire prison had re-
ceived their sentencing, mean-
ing that the other 195 are stillin
jail awaiting sentencing and are
adding to the burden.
To solve the problem, Sheriff
Lee contacted various surround-
ing jails and facilities regarding
sending some of the inmates to
other locations. All facilities were
facing similar issues hernsele es
Contributing to the problem
is a rapidly increasing female


population and an unusually
high number of state prisoners
being detained because of pro-
bation and parole violations, he
said.
The sheriff asked commis-
sioners to consider other mea-
sures to remedy the problem.
Among them, the sheriff pro-
posed the possibility of secur-
ing modular units, rather than
having to build a new facility
or expand the existing jail. The
modular units would contain ap-
proximately eight inmates each,
requiring several units to accom-
modate the existing number of

ers granting the request. After

Positive outcome for
local mental health
children's services

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWSITON -After the Hen-
dry-Glades Mental Health Clinic in
Clewiston found out that it would
have to eliminate child mental
health services due to a cutback
in funds and state officials got
wind of the news, the 'fcilitv v.il1

According to Joseph Hosick,
CEO/CFO of Hendry-Glades Men-
tal Health Clinic, after the story
broke in the Clewiston News,
state officials, surprised, contact-
ed the Ft. Myers office of the local
clinic.
Why was it necessary to cut
back the funding to the critical
unit, they asked?
Officials at the Ft. Myers of-
fice responded "Don't yell at me,
you told me too," Mr. Hosick
explained. The Ft. Myers office
explained to Tallahassee officials
they had previously ordered them
to withdraw the child mental
health funds totaling $425,000.
According to him, the Ft. My-
ers office said responded by say-
ing, "'Oh, yes, that's right.'"
A representative with Medic-
aid also questioned why it was
necessary to stop the funding.
"I simply responded with the,
truth," explained Mr. Hosick. "We
had insufficient dollars to provide
staff services to provide to such a
large group of clients."
The Medicaid officials re-
sponded by offering the facility
a fixed-rate contract with an in-
crease of $61,000 to the already
existing funds.
According to Mr. Hosick, his
clinic had made the request for
an increase before, but after he
received the amounts back he
sent them back, knowing that it

It pays to be ready for anything here in Florida. A Total Line of Credit gives
you total flexibility. Access is instant just write a check. So if a storm blows
in, you're ready. You're also sel if you want to move on that new car or boat
or improve your home.
Here's the neat part: with rates as low as Prime minus 0.75% and no closing
costs, you can convert whal you borrowed to a fixed rate home equity loan. As
you repay your loan, your available line of credit goes back up. Pretty smart.

Firefighters train in


tight space survival


By Lt. Mark Carr
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY During a fire, fire-
fighters are sometimes faced
with collapsing buildings or a
growing fire that impedes their
egress, causing them to have to
seek or improvise an alternate
exit pathway. In recent weeks,
Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue
workers in Belle Glade, Pahokee
and South Bay have practiced
survival techniques in prepara-
tion that life-threatening sce-
nario.
Under the direction of Glades
area District Chief Curtis Rice,
who developed the training,
two fire engine crews from the
Pahokee fire station and another
district chief, went through the
simulations on July 17. Props
were constructed out of wood
by Pahokee Firefighter C.J. Whit-
more. In the event of a collapse,
firefighters might have to breech
walls in order to escape. Each
crew member faced the chal-
lenge of fitting between simulat-
ed wall studs set 16 inches apart.
Another prop forced firefighters
to crawl through a 24 inch L-
shaped box tube about 12 feet
long.
Perhaps the most challenging
was the "entanglement prop"
which simulated a ceiling col-

lapse. Firefighters were forced to
crawl through the prop on their
backs as they worked their way
through wires and cables hang-
ing down and snagging them as
they worked their way through.
Adding to the challenge of
the training is the fact that each
member of the crew is dressed
in full firefighting gear including
pants, coats, boots, gloves, hel-
mets and Self Contained Breath-
ing Apparatus heavy air tanks
worn on their backs. In the final
scenario of the session, non-
toxic smoke was added to the
already darkened room causing
visibility to be near zero from
just above the floor all the way
up to the ceiling.
The training has been well
received by the crews. Each fire-
fighter realizes that his or her life
may depend on the ability to
perform in the most stringent of
circumstances and in the most
difficult of environments. A hasty
escape is of the essence in a col-
lapsed building or when one's
air supply is running low. Offi-
cials hope these skills will never
be brought to the test but the
families of the firefighters will
rest more easily knowing that
their loved ones have trained
and maintain a proficiency that
ensures that "Everyone Goes
Home" at the end of the shift.


Glades use
still limited

Although it appears that the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has loosened wa-
ter restrictions along the eastern
coast of the state, the Glades area
- made up of the western com-
munities of Palm Beach County,
Hendry County and Glades Coun-
ty -- remain under the same tight
restrictions.
Residents living in other com-
munities from St. Lucie to Mon-
roe counties have been given the
opportunity to wash their cars
at any time, instead of the previ-
ous once-a-week schedule, while
Glades residents are being asked
to continue limiting their use.
The Lake Okeechobee Service
Area, of which Glades, Hendry
and some areas of Palm Beach
counties are a part, remain under


Phase III water restrictions. This
means that residents living in this
area must limit outside water use
to one day per week.
Odd-numbered addresses are
allowed to water or wash their
cars or boats on Saturdays, from
4 a.m. to 8 a.m., those with even-
numbered addresses can water
during the same time on Sun-
days.
Areas on the coast follow
many of the same restrictions but
are now allowed to wash their
cars and boats at any time dur-
ing the week. Some areas in Palm
Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade
are allowed water use two days
per week under different restric-
tions.
An active rainy week recently
seemed to provide some relief to
the drought conditions, but the
lake level remains steady at 9.1
feet still a very low figure com-
pared to the normal level of the
lake.
The drought has exposed
areas of the lake bottom that re-


Man shot in bar fight


Injury was
to finger

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On the
morning of July 15, two men were
involved in a physical altercation,
leaving one shot in the finger.
According to Teri Barbera,
the spokeswoman for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies responded to
Glades General Hospital in refer-
ence to the incident.
The victim, 50-year-old Lessley
T. Lailer, was caught in the cross-
fire. Afterward, the victim was
sent to the hospital for observa-
tion.
The fight, which happened at


a bar, occurred at approximately
5:45 a.m. in the 400 Block of
Southwest Sixth Street, according
to Ms. Barbera.
During the altercation with the
victim, the suspect, whose name
had not been released at press-
time, allegedly retrieved a hand-
gun and fired at the other man,
hitting him in the hand.
Officials are not releasing fur-
ther information, as an investiga-
tion into the case continues and
detectives are still searching the
suspect.
If anyone has any information
relating to this incident, please
call the PBSO at 688-4000 or
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS
(8477).

vealed, among other items, a veri-
table treasure of hidden artifacts
dating hundreds of years back at
a site off of Torry Island in Belle
Glade.
Even while the water district
loosens restrictions, residents
across South Florida continue fac-
ing the possibility that the restric-
tions will be implemented again.
As it stands, water managers said
that the onset of the rainy season
and the storage of more than 2.2
billion gallons of water ensures
that water stages do not drop to
dangerously low levels for the du-
ration of the wet season.
"With conditions in the Lake


Okeechobee watershed so radi-
cally different from conditions
along the coast, the district is
still in a severe regional water
shortage," said district governing
board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"Even with modified water re-
strictions in some areas, we must
still practice wise water use and
conservation."
Meanwhile, residents in the
Glades continue hoping for some
relief from the stringent water re-
strictions, but any relief seems far

Remember the quote from
'The Rime of the Ancient Mari-
ner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
"Water, water everywhere, nor
any a drop to drink?" The ancient
mariner was stuck in the middle
of the ocean, so all the water
around him was salty and not fit
for consumption.
With more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs, 1,350 miles of coast-
line and 50,000 miles of rivers and
streams, water is just about ev-
erywhere in Florida. Two months
ago, however, Florida experi-
enced the worst case of wildfires
since 1998 while the period from
November 2005 to March 2007
ranked as the third driest period
in recorded history. With drought
conditions occurring throughout
much of the state, it is important
that each of us do our part to con-
serve water.
How much difference can an
individual make when it comes
to conserving water? With pre-
dictions of water use in Florida
increasing from 7,551 million gal-
lons a day (mgd) in 2005 to more
than 9,200 mgd in 2025, every lit-
tle bit saved can help, although, it
really isn't just a little bit when it's
all added up. Based on a family of
two adults and one child, practic-
ing water conservation can save:
20 gallons per day-for every
leaky faucet that is repaired.
500 to 800 gallons per
month-installing water-saving
shower heads or flow restrictors.
700 gallons per month-short-
ening shower time by just one or
two minutes.
200 to 300 gallons a month-
catching the water that runs while


heating a shower in a container
for other uses.
Three gallons a day-turn off
the water while shaving.
200 to 300 gallons a month-
keeping a bottle of drinking wa-
ter in the refrigerator instead of
letting water run cool from the
tap, and
500 to 1,500 gallons each
month-setting lawn mower
blades one notch higher to pro-
duce less evaporation.
Other simple ways to save wa-
ter around our homes include:
Landscaping with native and
drought resistant plants.
Watering lawns during early
morning or evening hours when
temperatures are lowest.
Avoiding over fertilizing
which increases the need for wa-
ter, and
Using mulch to retain mois-
ture in the soil.
By making just minor changes
in our day-to-day routines, we
can all help conserve the water
that defines our quality of life. For

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it
anytime at the Clewiston issues forum at http://www.newsza-
pforums.com/forum52. It is a hometown forum so visit the
page as often as you would like and share your comments
(but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You can also
make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour opinion
line at (863) 983-9140. Comments will be published in the
newspaper as space permits.

MORAL LAWS: Do we have any moral laws for kids walking
around with their britches hanging down, you see their underwear
and the crack of their backsides, excuse my French. Can't Hendry
County deputies or someone stop these kids? I just saw three kids
walking down with their pants hanging down. I called deputies and
they said there's nothing they can do, there's no laws in the books. I
told them if got out there and pulled my shirt off in a public place, will
they arrest me and they said yes. Has this town become like Miami?
Now come on, what's going on here? Earrings hanging out our noses,
down our ears, our belly buttons. No telling where else. I think it ap-
plies to this whole area. What kind of morals do we have anymore as
a society? We're stooping so low. I've just about given up. The world is
turned upside down, literally. The 70s I thought were bad, but the 70s
don't have nothing on what these, people are doing nowadays. Thank
you for your time and patience.

COVERAGE: The school year is over and I have to comment: What
was the deal this year with Clewiston News and a specific elementary
school? The June 14 issue had not one or two, but 11 pictures from
one school.
Editor's Note: The photos you saw were submitted by the school.
We encourage all local schools to submit news and photos for the
paper. Some schools submit more than others.. If we have had a
surplus of photos of one school, it is because that school submitted
photos and items and other schools did not. Please call the principal
of your school and encourage them to send items to clewnews@
newszap.com. Or, if you have a camera, why not volunteer to help
the school by taking photos of school activities and submitting them
to the paper?

LEASH LAW: Clewiston people should be aware that there's a
leash law and I don't care if the dog is a Chihuahua or a Great Dame,
if it's loose it's supposed to be on a leash. There's a $100 fine if your
dog is caught without a leash. All people should abide by it and they're
not.

SUPERIOR RATING: I think it's great that the Clewiston Middle
School won the superior rating. They have worked hard all year long.
We're so proud of them. We want to appreciate Mr. Hall. If it wasn't
for him teaching them, this wouldn't have been done.

ANTI-DRUG: I read how the Sheriff's Office is running the anti-
gang and anti-drug program. I think what they should do is invest the
money in after-school programs and recreation programs and things
for the kids to do, to stay active in playing sports. They can do good
things instead of bad things.

LANGUAGE BARRIER: I was in a local store a couple of week-
ends ago buying groceries. I went to talk to somebody and the first
thing they started doing was speaking Spanish to me. I have noth-
ing against Spanish, but I'm not a Spanish person. This is the United
States. If I were in Mexico, then I'd understand. The store has to get its
act together. I tried to talk to management and they kind of shrugged
me off. I don't know what country we're living in. Do I have to go back
to school and learn Spanish? I'm not going to. You're not gonna teach
an old dog new tricks.

GAS PRICES: I just returned from a trip to Okeechobee where I
purchased regular gasoline for $2.89 cents a gallon. We're paying well
higher than national average for regular gasoline. I guess they think
we're not going to buy out of town. We're paying a minimum of $3.09,
When we can get it for $2.89 in Okeechobee.

Athletic programs tackle steroids bill


Local coaches and
players unaffected
by the new bill

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
A new bill is aimed squarely at
finding high school football play-
ers who may be using steroids to
enhance their on-the-field perfor-
mance. The legislation will affect
high schools during the upcom-
ing season.
Not only do the football teams
have to worry about the impend-
ing matter, the baseball and
weightlifting teams must do the
same, effective next season.
Signed by Florida Governor
Charlie Crist on June 19, athletes
from all three sports will face ran-
dom steroid testing, with up to
one percent of the approximately
60,000 students in Florida being
tested. The random testing went
into effect on July 1.
. According to a bill HB 461, The
Florida High School Athletic Asso-
ciation (FHSAA) will be adminis-
tering the steroid testing program
- a one-year program for the 2007-
2008 academic year. Students
from grades nine through 12 will
be randomly screened for the per-
formance-enhancing drug.
Students will face a 90-day sus-
pension from interscholastic ath-
letic practice and competition if
the tests are found to be positive,
according to language in the, bill.
Locally, coaches and players
don't seem to be worried by the
effect of the bill.
Pahokee Blue Devils head foot-
ball coach Blaze Thompson said
that he supports the rules and reg-


INI/Naji Tobias
At a practice held on Tuesday, July 10 at the Pahokee Recre-
ational Center field, Pahokee Blue Devils senior quarterback
Anthony Sheppard, who stands at 6 feet, 2 inches and weighs
160 pounds, takes a water break. A bill on steroids, which
went into effect on July 1, won't affect him, he said. "All you
have to do is look at me and know I don't take steroids. I don't
want to be an embarrassment to the school team."


ulations, but added that the state
needs to be more explicit on what
players will be tested for.
"The state needs to give a list
of everything that's banned so the
players and coaches know what's
legal and illegal to take," said
Coach Thompson.
Moore Haven Terriers head
football coach Jason Bond said he
doesn't think the bill will be an ef-
fective deterrent to catching play-
ers using the illegal substance.
"As far as the bill goes, I think
it's a waste of the taxpayers' mon-
ey. The state is testing one percent
to catch one percent who are ac-
tually using steroids," said Coach
Bond. "I don't think the program
will be effective at all."


Coach Bond believes that the
state needs to refocus its efforts
on a bigger drug problem.
"Drugs and alcohol are a big-
ger issue than steroids because
every year in the lake area, there's
at least one person dying due to
alcohol-related accidents," the
coach said. "The state's focus is a
little off, I think."
Others say it's a step in the
right direction, but agree that one
percent is a negligible number.
Clewiston Tigers head football
coach and athletic director Larry
Antonacci supports the idea, even
though he wishes that it was well
over one percent of the athletes
who will be randomly tested.
The coach said that talking to


the players about steroids will be
one way to ensure that the ath-
letes will comply with the law.
"What I will do is monitor
both their weight gains and their
max gains on their weightlifting
sessions," Coach Antonacci said.
"We will be checking out the play-
ers' personalities to see if there
any changes. If we see any dras-
tic changes, then that player and I
will sit down, have a talk and find
out what the problem is."
Football players from across
the Lake Okeechobee region,
including Glades Day offensive
tackle Jimbo Arnold, said they are
not worried about the law. The
Glades Day offensive tackle add-
ed that if any players get caught,
scholarships could get cut as a
result something that nobody
wants.
"It will be an even-playing field
for all teams," said Jimbo.
Coach Bond believes in reach-
ing out to players before they have
the chance to reach out to drugs.
"The best thing for the coach-
es to do is to teach kids about the
negative side effects of what ste-
roids could do to you physically,
naturally and emotionally," said
Coach Bond. "It's more beneficial
for the players .to work out with
the coaches in weight training
programs, have better eating hab-
its and do it all naturally in a year-
round, supervised setting."
Glades Day Gators head foot-
ball coach Pete Walker delivers a
similar message.
"Drugs hurt your body," the
head coach said. "All we talk
about is getting high on God, foot-
ball and family."

The Dixie All-Stars give their all


By Brenda Whidden
Clewiston Dixie Youth All-Stars
took time out to cool off in the
Florida Caverns State Park dur-
ing their Softball competition in
Sneads, Fla. from July 7-10. The
team did as well as any Clewiston
team has ever done at the State
level with one win and two losses
in the double elimination series.
The first game against Wild-
wood was a disappointment to
parents and coaches, as the girls
were unable to gain their focus
in stifling heat. However, the girls
surprised their coaches by plan-
ning their own practice at 9 a.m.
the next morning and running it
themselves.
They showed high energy and
spirit and attacked Port St. Joe
with one triple by Christina San-
doval, 6 doubles and 7 base hits.
Katie Whidden pitched 7 innings
and contributed 9 strikeouts to the
win. Laura Romero played short
stop and Whitney Irey played sec-
ond base and were responsible for
6 assists for outs during the game
and had successful "at-bats".
Janeria Hatcher made a throw
from right field to the catcher for
an exciting out at home and also
batted extremely well.
In the third game against
Hardee County, Clewiston took
an early 2-0 lead against the best
pitcher they had seen 'so far in the
tournament. Zoe Perry contrib-
uted 8 strikeouts, only allowed
3 hits and only gave up 2 walks.
Unfortunately, Hardee County
was successful at beating us with
a couple of stolen bases, and 2 er-
rors on our part, with a final score

Throughout the tournament,
DeeAndra Trottie did a great job
catching and made three amaz-
ing catches in center field. Lucy
Cortez batted 2 for 3 in our game
against Port St Joe. Amiee Young
made a great catch in left field and
Bonnie Cortez pitched extremely
well in our first game but did not
get much action on third base for
the rest of the tournament. She
played error free ball on the few
balls that did come her way.
The coaches and parents were
proud of the effort and determina-
tion the girls showed during the
tournament. The girls all got along.
well with one another, and could


be found together after games
in the vending area of the hotel.
They exemplified sportsmanship
and leadership throughout their.
stay in Sneads. They were com-
plimented by the hotel staff, host
team coaches and staff and mem-
bers of other teams staying at the
same hotel.
The team would like to say
thank you to the Clewiston Di-
xie League volunteers and board
members for assisting them with
this experience. The High School
team will be obtaining some
good players from this program
in the next couple of years! Look

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

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

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

How are we doing?

Beedie Mae Thomas remembers progress


As told to
MaryAnn Morris
Mrs. Beedie Mae Thomas of
Basinger was kind enough to
share some of her recollections
of the mid-1900s. Mrs. Thomas
was born a Kilpatrick up in Kilpat-
rick Hammock, now a part of the
Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State
Park. She married Edgar Thomas
in 1935.
"We didn't get electric up here
until 1949 -- that was the Rural
Electrification (a Federal pro-
gram), but I never thought about
not having it. It was just the way it
was and there's no sense fussing
about that.
"Before electric, we had a hand
pump for water, so there was an
outside toilet, a wood stove and
you used a flat iron to iron with.
You had to have at least two of
those. One to heat up on the stove
while you ironed with the other.
"Then in '45,1 I got a gas stove
(propane) and then, like I said,
electric in '49.
"Telephone we got in 1958 and
the way we did that is about eight
or ten of us got together and paid
so much each for one. That was a
party line. (A party line meant that
all ten or so families were on one
line and each family had its own
ring: one long ring or two longs
and a short, three shorts and so
forth and so on). It wasn't until
later you had private lines here.
"Back then, you had your gar-
den, so you had fresh vegetables
all year you did two plantings,
one in spring and another in fall.
It seems like you could tell when
the seasons would come, not like
it is now.

"But we planted green beans,
turnips, mustard, collards, Irish
potatoes and then sweet potatoes
and cabbage. The potatoes would
keep pretty well back ten, not like
now. I don't know what the differ-
ence is.
"Later on in the spring you
could plant your corn and black-
eyed peas. We'd can everything
we didn't need just then so we
always had vegetables.
"There was no refrigerator, so
you'd cook what you would eat
for that meal and if there was any-


thing left, it went to the hogs or
the dogs. When things were tight
you planned pretty close. But we
had chickens, so we had eggs ev-
ery day and you milked your cow
twice a day, so you always had
milk and cream. Meat, you salted
and smoked and it would keep a
good long time that way.
"I rendered my own lard and
it would keep three months or
so without turning. Now it won't
keep like that.
Then'you had guavas they
grew wild and we picked them


and made jelly and canned them
and the wild huckleberries, too
and canned those for pie.
"What I wouldn't give for a
good huckleberry pie with that
good cow cream right now!
"I went to the Basinger School
they're talking about how to re-
store. We had three or four to a
class. I was in the same class with
Edgar Thomas, Christine Camp-
bell and Amy Sloan, she's a Davis
now. My first teacher was Miss
Lottie Raulerson, you've heard of
her and a Mrs. Pridgen and then
there was Rodney Durrance and
another man. They'd teach two
or three years and then go some-
where else. When I went there
were just two rooms. They added
a third room later.
"Our cars started with a Model
A Ford, we had them arid then so
on... They got around, even in the
wet."
Mrs. Beedie Mae pointed out a
lemon tree there in the yard.
"That's a native lemon. They
call it a "rough lemon" because
the .skin's so bumpy. The root-
stock of that tree is over 100 years
old.
"There was an old woman
who lived nearby. She just died a
couple years ago, and she said that
tree was here when she was a girl.
It'll freeze out and I'll be afraid it's
gone, but it always comes back.
That big oak tree keeps it shel-
tered, so I don't have the oak tree
trimmed back.
"In years when there're a lot of
lemons, I juice them and freeze
the juice in ice cube trays. Then
when I want a lemon pie, I can
make one anytime."


When Summertime comes sauntering in


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
The end of one brings on the
beginning of another. Spring bows
out around June 20 at which time
summer officially marches to
front and center -- as do more
brides than in any other month of
the year.
According to the early Roman
calendar, June was the fourth
month with 29 days. But then
came Julius Caesar's reformation
of the calendar and suddenly June
is pushed down the road to the
sixth spot and she's given an extra
pearl another day.
As to her name, there are
two groups of authorities. One
believes the month was named
for Juno, the patron goddess of
marriage. The other group be-
lieves the name was taken from
juniores, the Latin word for young
men, particularly since the month
of June was dedicated to young
men in Rome.
Regardless of one's choice
of camps as to the name, to the
world in general, at least in tem-
perate zones, June is thirty days
of sweet scents and lovely sights,
star-studded nights and warm
sparkling days. One of the largest


of these lovely sights, at least in
the eyes of some, is Loblolly Bay,
Fordonia lasianthus, Family Thea-
ceae.
Interestingly enough, this is the
"tea" family, one and the same
as the tea we drink. Loblolly Bay
is native to the Land of Flowers.
Slightly cupped, pure white petals
of her showy fragrant flowers are
in a single row around a golden
cluster of stamens.
It hasn't happened this year,
but Loblolly Bay often bursts into
bloom seemingly overnight in the
waning days of May, then contin-
ues her show through summer
into autumn. At heights of up to
40 feet, Loblolly Bays of South
Florida are purely spectacular as
they grow close enough to in-
tertwine in wet areas, creating a
stunning star-like effect against
their evergreen background of
deep, waxy green.
Hear-say vows albeit incor-
rectly -- that the beauteous native
Loblolly is in the family Magnolia-
ceae. Although there is a foliage
and on a smaller scale, a flower'
resemblance, the two are no kin.
But to take the family tree a little
further, Stewartia verginica is kin
to Loblolly in the family Thea-.
ceae.
And if there be those who say


this is more than one needs to
know about Loblolly Bay trees,
there are others who yearn for
one or more. After all, this Flori-
da native has no ugly season, no
human nor environmental prob-
lems, and once planted in a wet
area, will require only one thing:
admiration.
"It's one of my favorites, I love
it," says Ruth Danforth, Dan's
Nursery, Alva. "Although no
'blood' kin, it's often called the
wild magnolia, and it does remind
me of real magnolias. Even if you
have only one, it's well worth
planting -- a splendid shade tree."
Eddie Scrivner, Scrivner's
Garden Center, Fort Myers, says
although Loblollys are not com-
monly available, they're reason-
ablyeasy to find. "If we don't hap-
pen to have them at a particular
time, we can get them quite eas-
ily."
Loblollys are also available at
most native nurseries, one be-
ing Dan's Nursery at Alva in Lee
County. In LaBelle in Hendry
County, Ace Garden Center also
stocks Loblolly Bay trees.
One of Glades County's elected
officials, Joe Flint, Clerk of Court,
says the
Loblolly Bay is very special to
him. "I love it -- it's majestic, se-


rene ... a tidy tree with no ugly
season. I cherish every Loblolly
that's on my land."
This sixth month is special for
other reasons, too. The United
'States celebrates
Flag Day on June 14, honoring
the day in 1777 when the Conti-
nental Congress adopted the Stars
and Stripes as the flag of these
United States.
To some, no day dawns in
June that is not special, it's some-
thing like:
You could not come an hour
too soon...
Oh joy of joys! One more
June.
And besides, the wrens are
courting again!

Blackwell breaks pitching record


Local posts
impressive stats
in minor leagues

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
For Chad Blackwell this year,
baseball is king.
The outstanding pitcher is
making a name for himself on the
mound, having broken one long-
time record already this season,
with an eye toward helping his
team to a winning record.
Chad, whose family lives in
Clewiston, pitches for the South-
Shore RailCats, an independent
minor league baseball team in
the Northern League.
The team plays out of Gary,
Ind.
The RailCats last won a cham-
pionship in 2005 and fans are
hoping for a repeat.
It isn't as though Chad isn't


helping matters any.
Chad has started impressively
this year, with a 4-0 record to his
name.
More surprisingly, he's earned
a low 0.94 ERA in just over 38 in-
nings pitched.
Earlier this month, he was
three innings away from qualify-
ing for the league lead in ERA.
His work from now on is in
keeping that stat low and if his
first few games are any indica-
tion, sorfiewhere in Boston, Cy
Young can be heard shaking in
his cleats.
He's racked up 36 strike outs
from four games and his parents
say he seems genuinely excited
about helping his team secure
more wins.
When we last caught up with
him, 24-year-old Chad had just
finished breaking his club's re-
cord for consecutive scoreless in-
nings. His streak last week stood
at 22 innings.


Backed by a supportive team,
Chad broke the record on the
road, during the team's game
against Illinois' Joliet JackHam-
mers in late June.
His pitching hasn't gone un-
noticed.
According to northernleague.
com, Chad received pitcher of
the month honors for allowing
only a single run during the entire
month of June.
The veteran player has made
the most of his time after gradu-
ating from college years ago,
and has played for Major League
Baseball's Pittsburg Pirates, hon-
ing his playing style while pitch-
ing for the University of South
Carolina, which, according to
northernleague.com helped
the team make it to the College
World Series and earned him All-
American honors.

Noxious weed spreading in Florida


GAINESVILLE-Aweed called
cogongrass is rapidly spreading
across the Southeast, and a Uni-
versity of Florida researcher says
it's already overtaken kudzu as
Florida's most obnoxious weed.
"Kudzu's no longer the poster
child. Cogongrass is a big deal,"
said forestry researcher Shibu
Jose. "It's becoming a major, ma-
jor problem." Cogongrass (CO-
gun-grass) has yellowish-green
foliage and can reach 4 feet tall,
said Mr. Jose, of UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Introduced into Alabama from
Japan as a packing material in
1912, cogongrass was tested as
a forage crop in the 1920s, which
allowed it to gain a toehold. It be-
gan making its presence known
in the 1970s and 1980s, Mr. Jose
said and is now causing prob-
lems in Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
A 2003 survey showed 1.5 mil-
lion acres of cogongrass across


the Southeast, compared to I mil-
lion acres of kudzu, Mr. Jose said:
Florida has about a half-million
acres of cogongrass. Cogongrass
is well-suited to its role as an ag-
gressive weed. It's a perennial that
can spread quickly underground,
its roots easily besting other plants
for water, nutrients and space. Co-
gongrass also thrives where fire is
a regular occurrence. Mr. Jose be-
lieves recent wildfires may make
the problem worse, because fires
kill smaller trees and plants, leav- ,
ing lots of room for cogongrass
to move in and take over. \\ ien ,
cogongrass squeezes out native
plants, it can hurt animals that
depend on those plants for food
or shelter.
Mr. Jose, who published a
paper on cogongrass in the June
issue of the journal Biological
Invasions, has been studying
the grass for about nine years.
Some Florida counties, such as
Alachua and Marion, are making


a concerted effort to bring every-
one from government officials
to landowners to researchers to-
gether to eradicate cogongrass.
But the entire state must be on
board, Mr. Jose said.
"It doesn't do any good if
everyone's not doing the treat-
ments. Private landowners,
agencies, everyone has to work
together," Mr. Jose said. "If we
don't do this, we will see cogon-
grass everywhere." Cogongrass
can be controlled, but it takes a
specific regimen of mowing and
controlled burns, coupled with
repeated, well-timed herbicide
treatments, Mr. Jose said.
UF researchers are looking for
a biological control solution for
cogongrass, but so far, that's been
elusive, said UF plant pathology
professor Raghavan Charudattan.
Graduate research assistant Ala-
na Den Breeyen has been work-
ing with Charudattan to pinpoint
fungi from cogongrass that can


suppress it, but not eradicate it.
Den Breeyen said cogongrass
is terrible for African subsistence
farmers, who can only hack away
at the grass with hoes, in hopes
of keeping it at bay."These farm-
ers have to fight this beast all the
time," Mr. Charudattan said.
In Jose's recent study, he
and graduate student Alexandra
Collins wanted to test ecologist
Charles Elton's hypothesis that
the more species-rich a forest is,
the less vulnerable it is to invasive
species. They conducted studies
at two Santa Rosa County sites,
one that recently been cleared of
17-year-old loblolly pines and the
other, a longleaf pine forest. "Our
prediction was that with an ag-
gressive invader like cogongrass,
perhaps it didn't matter the num-
ber of species that were there.
And that's what we found," he
said."The moral of this story was
that it doesn't have a chance to
resist. And that is bad news."


Cypress is ideal choice for wet sites


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
Rains and summer tempera-
tures in Florida bring visions of
'\,mp".s and gators. A lasting
symbol of our freshwater areas is
the Cypress Tree. But as Hendry
County Extension Director Gene
McAvoy reminds us in this week's
column, the Cypress can also do
well out of water as well.
Cypress trees have ruled their
watery domain as the lords of
southern swamps, sloughs and
other wetland areas for millions
of years. Cypress is a conifer and
is related to its long-lived rela-
'tives, the famed redwoods and
sequoias of California. Unlike
other conifers, cypress trees are
deciduous: that means they shed
their needles (leaves) in the fall.
Two kinds of cypress trees are
recognized in Florida, the bald-
cypress (Taxodium distichum
var. distichum) and the pond-cy-
press (T. distichum var. nutans).
Both species share a number of
characteristics which sometimes
make identification tricky.
The bald-cypress is generally
much larger and is more widely
distributed than the pond-cy-
press. Pond-cypress needles tend
to be held more closely to the
t\~ig than bald-cypress, whose
needles stand at nearly right
angles to the twig. In addition,
pond-cypress thrives in charac-
teristic stands called domes or
strands. These areas are poorly
drained and have nutrient-poor
soils around ponds or natural
depressions. The bald-cypress is
typically found on nutrient rich
seasonally flooded sites.

or buttress, which can range in
form from conical to bell-bot-
tomed or bottle-shaped. The
most distinctive characteristic of
cypress tress is their unique root
system. On wetter sites, the shal-
low and widespread root systems
give rise to the peculiar aboveg-
round conical structures known
as "knees." These "knees" can
take on an astonishing variety of
forms and even form the basis
for many well known local attrac-
tions like Tom Gaskin's Cypress
Museum in nearby Palmdale.
The size of cypress knees and
the width of the buttress on an
individual tree is directly related
to water level. The function of
cypress knees is some what mys-
terious. They were thought to aid
the roots in gas exchange under
flooded conditions but removal
of the knees seems to have no ill
effect on the tree.
Feathery light 'green needles
which turn an attractive red
brown before they drop in the
late fall. In winter, the bare trees
reveal their many colorful air
plants. The coarse grey bark con-
tributes to making the cypress an
appealing tree for landscape use.
Bald-cypress is also a favored
nesting place for many of our
larger wading birds and raptors.
Florida-friendly choice
While cypress trees are an ob-
vious choice for wetter sites and
aquascaping around water fea-
tures, bald-cypress is tolerant of
drier upland sites and is frequent-


ly used in parks and as a residen-
tial shade tree. As an ornamental
specimen, the bald-cypress offers
a unique appearance, symmetri-
cal shape, fairly rapid growth rate
and excellent disease resistance.
Bald-cypress matures at 100-
120 feet or more in height and
may have a trunk of 3-5 feet in
diameter. Site selection is impor-
tant to assure that the seedling
planted today has plenty of room
to reach its full potential. Both
species tolerate a wide range of
soil types and require little fertil-
ity, making them ideal for low
maintenance Florida Yards.
These trees should be planted
in full sunlight for best growth al-
though they will perform well un-
der high drifting shade. Contain-
erized plants of several different
sizes and prices are widely avail-
able in our area nurseries. Ma-
ture seeds gathered from under
cypress trees can be germinated
fairly easily by the enterprising
gardener and will produce a nice
size tree for planting into the
landscape in a few years.
Cypress pests
C\ press suffers from few pest
and disease problems. The only
disease of any consequence is
a fungal pathogen that causes a
condition known as pecky heart-
wood rot. Wood infected by this
fungus looks like it has been at-
tacked by wood boring insects
but it retains its strength and
durability. The effect on cypress
lumber is considered rustic when
used as interior paneling and is
referred to as pecky cypress.
Bald-cypress, in particular,
may be defoliated by a leaf roll-
er, which can reduce tree vigor
and growth rate. Control may be
warranted on smaller landscape


specimens but is generally not
practical on larger trees.
Cypress mulch
A larger threat to Cypress trees
is the practice of harvesting natu-
ral stands of these trees to pro-
duce mulch for our landscapes.
Originally Cypress mulch was a
by-product of lumber products,
but as the popularity of ground
wood mulch increased, the de-
mand for clear-cutting cypress
domes increased. And along with
the trees goes the airplanes' and
habitat for wildlife.
A fallacy is that cypress mulch
is resistant to rotting when used
for mulch. This idea comes about
since dense heartwood from
cypress trees does resist decay.
However, much of the mulch
comes from the outer younger
sapwood that is not nearly as re-
sistant to decay. The average bag
of cypress mulch is not likely to
lat much longer than any other
kind of ground wood mulch.
Cypress trees are becoming
more popular as folks discover
there versatility as a landscape
tree. In addition to their multi-fac-
eted appeal and contribution to
the Florida-look in the landscape,
cypresses provide important
habitats .for many other species.
A number of colorful epiphytes
(air plants) such as bromeli-
ads, orchids and ferns grow on
their trunks and branches. The
air plants and orchids cause no
harm to cypress or other trees
where they grow they only take
up space.
A recent news release from
the University of Florida talks an-
nounced that a biological control
measure (an insect) is combating
an "evil weevil". This beetle and
its larva eat up many of these na-
tive bromeliads.


Everglades construction blasting to begin


Travelers are reminded that
weekday delays along U.S. 27
began July 16, as construction on
the Everglades Agricultural Area
(EAA) Reservoir continues.
Weekday road closures av-
eraging one- to two-hours are
required while technicians and
engineers blast through rock 150
feet from the western edge of
U.S. 27, creating a seepage canal
for the massive reservoir. This
will bring northbound and south-


bound traffic to a rolling stop
between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. In
unforeseen circumstances blasts
could occur as early as 8 a.m. or
as late as 5 p.m, Construction will
continue for at least six months.
To avoid delays, drivers are en-
couraged to use alternate routes
including 1-595, 1-95, the Florida
Turnpike, S.R. 80 and 1-75.

wasn't enough to cover his pa-
tients.
"I have fought and of course
they were very angry with me,
but I knew it wasn't enough
funds to cover for all the eligible
clientele and the state backed me
up," he said.
The money is earmarked for
Medicaid patients. Mr. Hosick
continues working to acquire
funding to help the population
that does not have access to Med-
icaid.
"We wanted to keep our chil-
dren mental health services, so
we went ahead and accepted it,
not as the ultimate answer," said
Mr. Hosick, "We want to re-nego-


tiate with Medicaid but this deci-
sion will buy us some time for the
Department of Children and Fam-
ilies (DCF) to consider funding us
with additional funds for the non-
Medicaid general population."
The new contract will begin in
September and will continue to
service school, foster and other
eligible Medicaid children.
But Mr. Hosick will continue
fighting.
"This is a positive beginning,"
said Mr. Hosick "I have high
hopes that DCF will provide fund-
ing in the near future. It just takes
time. We just want to offer the
services to the non-Medicaid ----
-eligible general population, too,"
added Mr. Hosick.

Obese Americans 'dying' to be thin


In the news this week were
more stories of Americans "dying
to be thin."
Apparently thousands of U.S.
citizens travel to Mexico each
year for cut-rate cosmetic surgery
and other elective medical proce-
dures. Many of these are people
who have no insurance, or whose
insurance does not cover gastric
bypass surgery.
There are horror stories of in-
adequately-equipped medical fa-
cilities, lack of testing before sur-
gery, inadequate follow-up care
which resulted in complications
and even deaths.
Surgery is just not some-
thing it's advisable to do "on the
cheap." ,
Even in this country, anyone
considering weight-loss surgery
should be aware of the risks.
There can be complications from
the surgery. Even if the surgery
procedure is successful, some
people just can't handle the life-
style changes required.
In "Through the Physician's
Eye; Gastric Bypass Surgery," Dr.
David Provost writes: "While the
overwhelming majority of mor-
bidly obese patients could benefit
from weight loss surgery, not all
are appropriate candidates. A pa-
tient's mental approach to gastric
bypass is the key to optimal suc-

cess as well as satisfaction. They
must understand that they will
never eat 'normally' again. Pa-
tients must learn to eat small por-
tions, chew well, eat slowly, and
stop when they are full. Overeat-
ing will result in discomfort and
vomiting. Some foods may not be
tolerated.
"Eating, for many patients with
morbid obesity, has served as a
coping mechanism or crutch in
times of stress. The weight loss
surgery candidate must be willing
to make this break with food and
if they do not, they are likely to
be unhappy despite weight loss,
which will often be less than av-
erage.
"Unfortunately, preoperative
psychological, testing has been
unable to accurately select, with a
few exceptions, who will fail and
who will succeed following a bar-
iatric surgical procedure. Psycho-
logical counseling is, however, a


very important part of the post-
operative adaptation phase for
many patients. I have found that
personalized preoperative coun-
seling with a patient, discussing
the changes that can be expected
following surgery, is the best way
to determine who is an appropri-
ate candidate for a gastric bypass.
I may meet with a patient on three
occasions to discuss risks, ben-
efits, and lifestyle changes prior to
surgery."
For anyone considering weight
loss surgery, many online re-
sources are available to help
the prospective patient make an
informed decision. Searchers
should be aware of the source.
Some Web sites are more biased
than others. Three health Web
sites I have found useful in re-
searching health issues are The
Journal of the American Medical
Association Web site http://jama.
ama-assn.org; Harvard Medical
School's Web site. http://www.
health.harvard.edu; and the Mayo
Clinic, www.mayoclinic.com.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially im-
portant if you are on any prescrip-
tion medications. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy."

ing. The meeting will begin at 4
p.m., a slight time change from
the regular schedule to allow the
company to present the units.
Sheriff Lee had initially brought
attention to the issue in May of


this year, after the release of a
report showed that the county's
jail population continues to in-
crease. During that presentation,
the jail had a total of 212 inmates
- which shows an increase of 26
inmates from then until now.

but we all love her so much, and
we wish to have her here with us

What moves us forward or keeps us in chains is inside


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
"I can't!"
How many times have I heard
that! I taught an introductory
psychology course one year. My
students com- -- -
plained that my
tests were "too
hard" and they
couldn't do
them. Actually,
the tests came
from standard-
ized questions -.
provided by the Samuel S.
publisher of the Thomas
textbook I used;
each question with its own diffi-
culty index. I picked medium lev-
els, but the students complained
anyway. I'd ask "How come,
then, that some students got A's
if it was too hard? Why wasn't it
too hard for everybody?
Why can one person do it and
another can't?" I never really got


an answer. It was obvious that
the "can't" part was something
within each student; but so was
the "can" part for those who did
well.
It wasn't just in class that I've
heard it. People would tell me
about their dreams but then say
I can't do that."
"Why not?" I'd ask, but never
got much in the way of concrete
answers other than "just can't."
One man told me he wanted
to become a radio operator and
his friends said "That's for smart
people, you can't do anything like
that." It was enough to make him
decide to do whatever it took and
he went on to be very successful
at it.
Another person told me about
a dream to travel and see part
of the world, but came up with
reasons why it couldn't be done.
Family chipped in when they real-
ized the dream. She had a won-
derful time and went a second
time, once she realized it was
possible after all.


A man who had always
dreamed about taking a trip
around the world never did. He
had the time and resources, con-
nections in the travel industry,
but passed away without fulfilling
that long-time dream.
I learned earlier in life that
some of the handicaps I suffered
were things I did to myself.
A student of human charac-
ter told about overcoming some
of the things that bother us by
putting it this way: "If you have
someone following you, it is dif-
ficult to get rid of them; but if you
imagine they are following you, it
is impossible to get rid of them!"
Some of the greatest road-
blocks I've encountered have
come from within. People say
"I'm trapped" or "I can't change"
or "I can't do it." When we'd ex-
plore what was the blockage, it
wasn't where they found them-
selves or what others were doing
or what was going on outside
that suppressed them. Some of
the people that began seminary


studies with me dropped out be-
cause they found the seminary
wasn't "heaven on earth" or that
they would have to go to chapel
twice daily every day. (It was dif-
ficult to imagine someone who
felt called to a vocation requiring
them to be always at the altar and
having difficulty attending chapel,
but it happened.)
There is a Biblical story about
a young man who asked Jesus
"What must I do to inherit eternal
life?(Mark 10:17)" and is told to
live a good life; to keep the com-
mandments. He told Jesus that
he had been doing those things
since he was a boy, and then is
told "One thing you lack (v.23)."
When it came to selling what
he has and giving to the poor, he
went away sad. It wasn't that he
was rejected or what was asked
was impossible, or that following
up on what he wanted was be-
yond his reach; it was just more
than he was willing to do and re-
ally didn't want eternal life that
badly.


'The American family of yesterday'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
I believe in America! I believe it
became great because of its faith
in God, its hope for independence,
and it love for freedom! I am awed
by its unbelievable present; I am
confident of its limitless future! I
am not ashamed to take my hat
off and to stand at attention when
Old Glory passes by. I do not apol-
ogize for the lump in my throat
when I repeat the Pledge of Alle-
giance! I am not embarrassed by


the tears in my eyes when I hear
"The Star Spangled Banner."
Like millions of Americans,
I want a free choice, not a free
handout. I prefer an. opportunity
to prove my abilities on the job
rather than a license to demon-
strate my frustrations in the street.
I am an old-fashioned American
with a new-found determination
to do my part to make democracy
work!
In the America of yesterday
you paid your debts as quickly as


possible, and went without things
to do so. You disciplined your chil-
dren, but disciplined yourself first.
You spent less than you earned,
and demanded your government
maintain the same standard. You
went to church, and took your
children to Sunday School; you
held daily prayers and no court
would have dared interpose any
law into your private religion. You
would have been horrified at (and
quick to change) men in high
places who made "deals." You ex-


pected to prosper only by doing a
better and better job. You not only
obeyed the law, but took an ac-
tive part in government to see the
laws were just. You "walked soft-
ly, but carried a big stick." That
was the character which brought
this great country victory in three
wars in the past century, built it
back from a shattering depression
and fed and saved the civilized
world (materially). I believe there
are enough righteous standards
to do it again!


The idea of "I can't" came
from within, as it most often
does. When someone says "I'd
like to, but ..." I suggest that per-
haps the better question is "How
do I get from here to there?" and
then set out to make the journey.
People build great prisons for
themselves; stronger than any of
the "Greybar Hotels" that dot the
landscape.
There was a youngster who
came home from school one day
and complained about having to
do long division problems. His
mother commiserated with him
and said "I know. It's so hard.
You just can't do it, you can't pass
this year. You won't be able to get


V '~~71~


into high school and then you
won't be able to go to college or
get a good job. You'll have to find
a bad job and nobody will want
to be around you. You'll have to
hang out with criminals and trou-
blemakers, and nobody will want
to marry you one day. You'll lead
a bad life and won't be able to get
into Heaven, it's really bad."
The kid said "Wait a min-
ute, Ma, it isn't that bad!" and it
wasn't. A lot of "I cant's" aren't
that bad either once the possi-
bilities are considered and faced
with optimism and faith in our-
selves. Dreams can and do come
true and we have a part in mak-
ing it happen.

Last night my wife asked me if

ing if I was sexy
or stating that ..

to turn down
the air. When
asked about it,
she said it was a --
guy thing to be .
so obtuse. I fig-
ure it's a women John
thing not to ask Hicks
something di-
rectly, but to challenge those of
us with male minds to hear what
they say and try to figure out what
they mean.
You've probably heard the
joke about the man who asked
his wife what she'd like for her
birthday. "I'd love to be six again,"
she replied. So, on the morning of
her birthday, he got her up bright
and early and off they went to a
local theme park. What a day! He
put her on every ride in the park.
Hours later, she staggered out of
the theme park, and he took her
right to a McDonald's for a Big
Kids Meal with extra fries and. a
refreshing chocolate shake. Then
it was off to the movies, complete
with hot dogs and popcorn. What
a fabulous adventure. Finally she
wobbled home with her husband
and collapsed into bed. He leaned
over and lovingly asked, "Well,
dear, what was it like being six
again?" One eye opened, she said,
"I meant a dress size 6."
I can relate to that poor man.
Effective communication is im-
portant. Our United Method-
ist Campus Ministry at Stetson
University was right next to the
Baptist Student Union. Parking
was at a premium, and when a
survey revealed that there was a
large space between the campus
ministry units that belonged to no
one, both of our ministries were
interested in claiming that space
for parking.
It was decided that the Bap-
tist Campus minister (Bob) and
I would meet for a debate, with
the winner receiving the coveted
parking spaces. Because both of
us were very vocal, it was also


straws ror wno would go nrst.
Bob won.
Round one: Bob extended his
arms in a wide circle and brought
his hands together. I pointed
downward with my right finger.
Round two: Bob held up three
fingers, then one. I held up one
finger. Round three: Bob reached
under the counter and brought
out a loaf of bread and a cup of
juice. I scratched my head for a
moment or two, then reached
into my pocket and pulled out an
apple. At that, Bob announced
that the Methodists had won.
Back at .the Baptist Student
Union, Bob explained what had
happened: "I circled my arms to.


I hneld up three fingers then one
to share that the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit are one. He said, "God
is one." He was right. In round
three, I took out the elements of
Holy Communion to share that
grace is offered to us. He took out
an apple to state that sin is still
here. He was right, and so they
win the debate.
Back at the Methodist Cam-
pus Ministry, I was explaining
my version of the debate. Bob
spread his arms saying, "All you
Methodists need to clear out of
the parking area." I pointed down
saying, "We're staying right here!"
In round two, Bob held up three
fingers then one, saying, "In three


one is leaving. VVatl iappenea
in round three? "He took out his
lunch and I took out mine."
This event was totally made
up, and the Baptist Campus min-
ister and I always got along and
worked together; but this story
does illustrate a point. Is what we
understand we are saying getting
through to the ones we are trying
to communicate with? We may
know what we are saying, but
do they? Do they understand the
words we say or the terms we
use? Are our actions communi-
cating our words?
What we say and how we say it
is important in our lives as people.
It is vital in our lives as Christians.

Emergency program sign-up resumes


INI/Katrina Elsken
On large ranches, cows have plenty of room to graze, as well
as sources of water. Backyard farmers should consider the
amount of space needed for each animal before they buy any
livestock.


Can small properties


house large animals?


By MaryAnn Morris
INI/Florida
Having a farm in your own
backyard may be a lifelong dream
or be based on remembrances of
vacations to a relative's farm as
children. And it can be so if you
plan. Uncle Al and Aunt Susie may
have had a far different scenario
in Idaho than backyard farmers in
Florida will encounter.
But if you want animals on
relatively little land as opposed to
many hundreds of acres, space is
a consideration. And the smaller
the plot the bigger the consid-
eration. Local laws often govern
the number and breed of animal
you may keep on your land and
private deed restrictions can also
be a consideration.
Also, to some extent the
bigger the animal, the bigger the
consideration.
For instance, can you keep
a horse, or a cow on an acre or
twq? But where will you store
feed? How much feed will you
need to store? How much room
does it take up? What kind or
storage considerations? 'Closed
containers? Inside storage? Do
you own a vehicle you can use to
pick up feed and hay or will that
have to be purchased or will you
have to arrange for feed to be de-
livered?
That raises -- or drops -- the
next consideration. Manure.
The average horse produces


Backyard

Barnyard

10 tons of manure a year. Will you
haul it off? Compost it and put it
on the garden?
With enough acreage to pas-
ture your animals, some of those
questions are answered. Horse
manure will dry out then a lawn
mower set high-will spread it to
provide organic fertilizer back
on the pasture. The price is right,
too!
Do the area veterinarians
make "house calls?" What do
they charge? Can you go together
with neighbors who also own
large animals and split the cost?
If you have a horse or two same
questions about the farrier.
If you have an acre or two or
three, will barnyard activities be
welcome in the neighborhood?
Are there deed restrictions that
prohibit some types of animals?
What about any odors? Check it
out.
But most of all, talk to your Ag-
ricultural Extension Agent. That
is the person and the organiza-
tion all farmers rely on for up to
the best, up to date information
about raising animals or crops on
the large or small place.
In Okeechobee County call
(863) 763-6469 to speak to an
agent.


GAINESEVILLE Sign-up for
the Emergency Forestry Conser-
vation Reserve Program (EFCRP)
resumes Aug. 6 announced Kevin
L. Kelley, State Executive Director,
of the USDA's Farm Service Agen-
cy (FSA) in Florida. The EFCRP
program helps landowners and
operators restore and enhance
the approximate 5.6 million acres
of forestland damaged by the
hurricanes of 2005. Local Farm
Service Agency (FSA) offices will
accept offers for enrollment in the
program beginning Aug. 6 and
ending Dec. 31.
In Florida, 36 counties re-
ceived disaster designations as a
result of damage caused by Hurri-
canes Dennis, Katrina and Wilma.
Those counties are: Bay, Brevard,
Broward, Calhoun, Charlotte,
Collier, Dixie, Escambia, Franklin,
Gadsden, Glades, Gulf, Hardee,
Hendry, Highlands, Holmes, In-
dian River, Jackson, Jefferson,
Lee, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Martin,
Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okaloosa,
Okeechobee, Palm Beach, St.
Lucie, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, Tay-
lor, Wakulla, Walton and Wash-

the devastating 2005 hurricane
season, some forests are still in
need of restoration," said Mr. Kel-

date near


for crops

VALDOSTA, Ga. United
States Department of Agricul-
ture (USDA) Risk Management
Agency (RMA) reminds farmers
of the July 31, sales closing date
for crop insurance. This sales
closing date is applicable for the
following crops: fresh market
tomatoes (Dollar plan), peppers
and fresh market sweet corn. The
sales closing date is the last date
to purchase a new policy or to
change the level of coverage for
an existing policy.
Crop insurance is sold and
delivered solely through private
crop insurance agents. A list of
crop insurance agents is available
at all USDA Service Centers or on
the RMA website at http://www.
rma.usda.gov/tools/agents/.


riod for the Emergency Forestry
Conservation Reserve Program
will help landowners re-establish
stands of trees to prevent further
damage and to help improve the
land's wildlife habitat, water and
air quality," said Mr. Kelley.
Trees planted under an EFCRP-
partnership help reduce flood ef-
fects, protect water sources, de-
crease soil erosion and improve
wildlife habitat. To be eligible, in
general, a producer must have
experienced at least a 35 percent
loss to merchantable timber on
private non-industrial forestland.
The loss must relate directly to
one of the calendar year 2005 hur-
ricanes.
EFCRP participants can receive
up to 50 percent cost-share assis-
tance to prepare sites and replant
or restore tree stands and they
can also receive either 10 years of
annual rental payments or a lump
sum rental payment. Tree loss
must have occurred in one of 261
counties receiving presidential or
secretarial primary disaster des-
ignations attributed to 2005 hur-
ricanes Dennis, Katrina, Ophelia,
Rita or Wilma in Alabama, Flori-
da, Louisiana, Mississippi, North
Carolina and Texas. Loss assis-
tance is unavailable in contiguous
counties that have not themselves


been designated as disaster coun-
ties.
A list of eligible counties is
also available in the "Counties Eli-
gible for 2005 Crop and Livestock
Hurricane Assistance Programs"
fact sheet found online at: http://
www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_
File/hurrcounties06.pdf.
This is the second time USDA
has conducted a signup for this
program, with its first signup held
last year following the enactment
of the Emergency Supplemental
Appropriations Act for Defense,
the Global War on Terror and Hur-
ricane Recovery 2006, Public Law
(P.L.) 109-234. Congress originally
authorized the EFCRP, under P.L.
109-148, as a pilot program to be
operated during calendar year
2006. The U.S. Troop Readiness,
Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery
and Iraq Accountability Appro-
priations Act, 2007, P.L. 110-28,
signed by President Bush on May
25, removed the calendar year
restriction paving the way for this
latest signup.
FSA will rank offers based on
the potential to, prevent soil ero-
sion, improve water quality, re-
store wildlife habitat and mitigate
economic loss caused by hurri-
canes, and other factors. Those
rankings will be based on evalua-


tions performed by foresters. The
ranking of offers are scheduled to
occur quarterly. Eligible offers not
selected during a ranking period
will rollover to subsequent rank-
ing periodss.
After offer evaluation and ac-
ceptance, a forester will work
with the landowner to develop a
conservation plan. Enrolled land
will remain under contract with
USDA's Commodity Credit Cor-
poration (CCC) for 10 years. Par-
ticipants will receive 50 percent
cost-share assistance and may
select either a lump sum rental
payment or 10 annual rental pay-
ments. However, they may not
harvest standing timber from
enrolled land during the term of
the contract period, except when
CCC permits it as part of normal
forestland maintenance.
Acreage enrolled in Emergen-
cy Forestry Conservation Reserve
Program does not count toward
the per-county number of acres
eligible for the Conservation Re-
serve Program (CRP) or CRP's
maximum acreage enrollment
authority. A fact sheet with ad-
ditional program information is
