By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE The city of
Belle Glade has granted concep-
tual approval of an interconnect
that will hook South Bay's aging
wastewater plant to the treat-
ment plant in Belle Glade. The
connection will allow the city of
South Bay and its residents to
make use of the more capable
plant in Belle Glade.
The need for the connection
comes as regulatory agencies cit-
ing South Bay for its deteriorating
plant have suggested that it con-


nect to the nearby plant in Belle
Glade to relieve it from any fur-
ther sanctions. The organizations
feel that the age of the plant and
its weathered condition simply
cannot continue to function
.much longer. To repair the plant
is also out of the question, as the
majority of its components are
antiquated.
With the information, South
Bay City Manager Tony Smith
approached Belle Glade with the
idea of the interconnect and
asked that the city provide his city


with treatment of the raw waste-
water.
Initially, Belle Glade officials
studied the feasibility of such an
arrangement and concluded that
the additional load could be suit-
ably handled by its present plant.
The question was how much it
would cost Belle Glade to pro-
vide those services to South Bay.
Those questions have
remained unanswered, but both
cities have expressed their mutu-
al desire to move forward and
reach an agreement.


Relay for Life:Dunked for charity

Belle Glade City Manager Houston Tate was a great sport at this year's Relay for Life
event, held at Pahokee Middle/Senior High over the weekend. He donated his kind serv-
ices to sitting in a dunk booth, where event participants lined up for their turn. Joshua,
much to Tate's surprise, was a razor-sharp shot.

All three Glades cities, Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee, were on-hand for Relay
May 20 and 21, with their teams competing against one another in raising funds for the
cause. Here, South Bay welcomes participants with smiles and good barbecue.





Firefighters deliver baby


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE Fire Chief Gary
Burroughs walked to the rear of
the fire station, where a scene of
firefighters, the police chief,
EMT workers and a husband
and his pregnant wife had sur-
vived five minutes of grueling
anticipation.
The focus was on an older
model car in the parking lot and
the woman sitting in the pas-
senger's side. She seemed fam-
ished, but the police chief him-
self seemed as ready for help.
Everyone else had grins as wide
as the fire chief had ever seen
them.
"What's going on," Chief
Burroughs asked?
"Hey chief," answered Fire-


fighter John Bush, "We just
delivered a baby."
"And you didn't bother
telling me? I'll just go back to
my office." .
It was just another workday
for the firefighters May 17, only
with different duties.
Two firefighters were occu-
pied installing a car seat for a
resident that morning when
Firefighter Melissa Jones came
from within the station to ask
for their help a man had
arrived who thought his wife
was near birth.
The woman was sitting in
the passenger seat of her car
and was unable to move, she
felt she was only minutes away
from having a child in the front


seat of the Ford car at the fire
station parking lot. The 21-year-
old had felt a cramp in her
stomach building since the
morning and now, at 9:30 a.m.,
she couldn't bear it any longer.
With such nice facilities at
the fire station, but with time
working against them, the fire-
fighters set up an improvised
hospital delivery room inside
the car, leaning the woman's
seat back and putting the hus-
band in the always precarious
situation of having to live
through the ordeal, only this
time behind the woman's seat
in the back of the car.

On May 16, at its regular city
meeting, the Belle Glade City
Commission voted unanimously
in favor of conceptual approval
of the idea of allowing the con-
nectiori.
Mr. Smith was present to ask
the commission to do so.
According to Mr. Smith, South
Bay looked forward to working
in partnership with Belle Glade
for the interconnect, but South
Bay would incur any and all costs
in the construction of the physi-
cal connection. The point of con-


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE A jealous
lover's spat turned deadly Sat-
urday, according to officials
with the Belle Glade Police
Department, leaving one per-
son dead from multiple gun-
shot wounds.
Now, the police depart-
ment is hot on the trail of the
responsible party, who is
nowhere to be found. They
ask for the help of the commu-
nity in finding and apprehend-
ing the murder suspect.
Police were called at
approximately 10:24 p.m. on
Saturday, May 14 to the 700
Block of Southwest Avenue C
in Belle Glade. The call placed
to-dispatch was jn reference to
shots fired in the proximity.
Officers found Junior Levi
Walters, 44 of Belle Glade,
who had been struck down,


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY After tabling
the item twice, South Bay City
Commissioners still had ques-
tions regarding allowing Gov-
ernment Services Group, a
management firm, to assume
management responsibilities
over the city's utilities systems.
With the city facing heavy
citations from regulatory agen-
cies on its failing wastewater
treatment plant, the city's man-
ager recommended hiring
GSG's consultant services to
lead South Bay toward a road
of stabilization and recovery.
Several commissioners,
though, disagreed with the con-
cept and said they prefer to
address the problem internally
and cease from spending more
money on consultants.
If it had been approved, the
contract would have cost the
city approximately $90,000
annually. The services were


nection, he said, would most
likely be in Belle Glade.
He also told commissioners
present that, while Belle Glade
had not reached any conclusion
as to the cost, South Bay has bud-
geted a cost of $2-per-thousand
gallons of raw wastewater treat-
ed as a possible price point. Mr.
Smith has publicly stated that he
expects that number to be high-
er, possibly over $3 per thousand
gallons.
See Concept Page 12


with multiple gunshot
wounds throughout his body.
Soon after the authorities
received the call for help,
emergency workers arrived at
the scene and transported
Walters to Glades General
Hospital in Belle Glade for
treatment of his injuries. It
was there that doctors pro-
nounced him dead.
Since then, detectives have
interviewed witnesses of the
incident and are hoping to
make an arrest soon in con-
nection with the murder.
According to Lieutenant
Robert Wheelihan, with the
police department, it is
believed that the homicide
was the result of a fight over a
woman.
Though it is still uncertain

meant to cover critical issues,
according to City Manager Tony
Smith, including day-to-day
oversight of both the water and
wastewater plants, with con-
sultants lending their expertise
in the field, to aid the city in
seeking grants and planning for
long-term projects.
Mr. Smith called GSG's serv-
ices "much, much needed," in
helping South Bay back to its
feet. "I just don't think we have
the expertise at the level we
need," he told commissioners
prior to the final vote.
Presently, the city finds itself
working through a number of
issues in regards to the waste-
water plant issues that have
city staff working long hours in
addressing the problem,
according to Mr. Smith. While
the water plant has improved
its function over the last num-

New research shows the
human brain can have difficulty if
faced with too many new factors
at one time. That's why people
sometimes freeze and die -
when they could have escaped
danger. Thetheory is that it goes
back to survival. When humans
were prey, staying perfectly still
sometimes protected them from
attack by predatory animals.
Firefighters have known the
importance of preparation for a
long time. That's why they stress
the importance of regular fire
drills.
Planning ahead means you are
ready to handle the emergency.
You don't waste time trying to fig-
ure out what to do. You follow the
plan.
Hurricane planning takes a little
more time than working out fire
escape routes. Hurricanes are
unpredictable, so if your plan is to
evacuate, you need more than one
destination in the "plan," depend-
ing on exactly where the storm's
landfall is protected.
During the last hurricane sea-
son, Floridians learned some
harsh lessons (such as when a
deputy knocks on your door and
tells you that you must evacuate,
you should take it seriously). But

Speak Out

Speak out is our free 24-hour opinion line. Call 996-6636 to
express your opinion or ask a question about public issues.
You are not required to give your name. While we want you to
speak freely, the newspaper reserves the right to edit calls for
clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.
Thank you
I'm a citizen of Pahokee and I want to give great thanks to
officer Maxwell for helping his community. Thank you officer
Maxwell.

Less criticizing and more prayer
I'm a subscriber of the newspaper Clewiston and Belle
Glade area. And I've called in several times and nothing's ever
been printed and I was just sitting here reading Speak Out in
my last week's paper. You know, I feel like that a lot of these
people who are speaking out are cancerous people. Talking
about city workers, employees and what have you. If they
would start and stop talking about people and get on their
knees and start praying, there would be a big change. The gos-
sip that is being put in this paper is ridiculous. Pray for them,
don't criticize 'cause you know God loves every one of us.

Stolen shopping carts
I wish to express my sympathies to local merchants who
must deal with stolen shopping carts, which end up all over
town. Result, of course, is that responsible shoppers have no
carts to use and everyone eventually must share the expense
to replace those dumped in a canal or abandoned to rust.
Maybe a surcharge of $5 or so, for the use of the cart, refund-
able upon, certified return, would help. I would be willing to
do this. A hex on those who steal a cart and again, my sympa-
thy to the merchants who must deal with this threat.

Homegrown, but no interview
I'm calling on behalf of my classmate, a person who's been
home grown from Belle Glade. I'm calling in referent to Mr.
Tate shut him out for even giving an interview for the city
assistant manager position, even though the person grew up
here in Belle Glade. My classmate possesses a MBA and a MPA
degree and is a veteran of the armed forces. Ask Mr. Tate if he
possesses those (qualities). It's a shame when someone from
here goes out and gets an education, comes back to his com-
munity, to help change his community, gets shut out from
someone who isn't from this community.

Conspiracy theory
Could it be that our mayor, city manager and their benefac-
tors are working on a land speculation deal? In other words,
by keeping Pahokee in the news constantly in negative terms,
land values will stay down while they secretly get their bud-
dies and friends from Miami, Dade, and Broward County to
come up and buy land. Think about it. It all comes together.

Names should be switched
I can't believe that the mayor of Pahokee and the city man-
ager tried to avert the controversy over the name of the park
by not only naming it after a series of people who have ruined
people's lives, but to rename the city library after Roy Single-
tary, I don't think that should be, simply because he wasn't an
educator. Name the water park after Roy. He took care of chil-
dren in this town.

Spring cleaning
My, my, this year has really went fast. This is already May of
2005 and coming March of 2006 will be a new spring. It's time
"for some spring cleaning in Pahokee via the city commission
and mayor and city manager. I urge the voters to get out to
vote and let's do some spring cleaning. They all have obvious-
ly proven they can't do the job. We need some competent
people running our city. Not people that get in the Palm Beach
Post and say, "This is the way we do it in Pahokee." He is an
embarrassment to us. Let's do some spring cleaning.

Good job chief
This is on the article (inaudible). I think (the) chief is doing
an excellent job. That's what a super job is to get out and meet
the community and as far as the comment last week about
he's always running the kids from the trees, what if it was in
your precious neighborhood and you want something done?
So get over it. Chief Miller is gone. This is a new day.

Where's the justice?
We out here in Belle Glade want to know how the girl was
murdered back in about February or March and the man who
caused it is in jail but they never gave him no trial. One.in jail
and one walking around here lying. The girl was found in the
car and was killed in the car, but some people say she was
killed in the house. We want to know when there is going to
be (accountability) for the murderers.

Congratulations, I think?
I would like to congratulate the chamber of commerce of
Pahokee for their recent $50,000 grant that was given to them
because of loss of tourism during the hurricanes. Wow, I did-
n't know Pahokee was a tourist destination. By the way, cham-
ber of commerce, what are you going to do with the $50,000.

Community Profile: Don Garrett


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza

Q: What is your name?
A: Donald Dee Garrett.
Q: Where were you born?
A: Madison, Tennessee. I got
out of high school and came here
45 years ago and been here ever
since. I had a friend I went to
school with, his brother works
here, and I came here with him
and stayed.
Q: What do you do?
A: I sell produce all over the
United States, by the semi-truck
loads. And city commissioner. I
feel like the job is representing the
people and looking out for the
people's interest, making sure
that their money is spent correctly
and not wasted. I go out in the
community and listen to the citi-
zens and I try to vote the way the
citizens expect me to vote. That's
the reason we were hired and a
lot of commissioners forget what
their job is supposed to be: Repre-
sent the people, not represent
themselves.
Q:Why?
A: I care about the community
and I care about the people.
When I ran for the city commis-
sioners, I said the people would
have a voice up there and I've
always tried to represent the peo-
ple. As far as the Commissioner
Don Garrett doesn't have an agen-
da. The only agenda that Don Gar-
rett's got is the people's agenda to
do what's right for them look
after their interest and to see that
their money is spent wise. I've
been a commissioner going on
five years and I've asked for an
audit for over five years to let peo-
ple know where their monies are
going. This commission that's up
there has wasted more money


Staff photo/Jose Zaragoza
than any commissions that's ever
been up there in lawsuits and
commissioners taking trips and
saying that they get educational
by taking the trips, but they
haven't brought back the first
dime from one of those trips for
the people of Belle Glade. They
tell you they bring back.a lot of
knowledge, but knowledge does
not balance a budget, knowledge
does not pay the bills for the tax-
payers.
Seeing to vote on something
that's going to cost the taxpayers
money. When you have to cast
that vote and you cast the vote to
protect the taxpayers and you
have three or four other commis-
sioners that vote opposite to you
and that's very hurtful.
Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Don Garrett is a person that
cares about Belle Glade and the
people of Belle Glade. Belle
Glade's been good to me. I've
raised a family here. I care about
the community and I care about
the people's concerns. I respect

don't let color or anything stand in

believe in everybody having the
same representation, everybody's

(Q: What about personally?)
Not dealing with politics? I try to
be kind. Like I say, a lot of people
come by and they lack five dol-
lars, don't have enough to pay
their water bill, I take it out of my
pocket and give it to them. If they
lack three dollars, don't have
enough for the electric bill, I take
it out of my pocket and give it to
them. I've had people come by
and need grocery money and I've
taken it out of my pocket and
given it to them. I know I'd never
get this money back, didn't
expect it, and I wouldn't have
. given it to get it back. I was giving
out of the kindness of my heart.
Q: What scares you?
A: To see some of the things
that this commission does to the
people of Belle Glade. If we're not
careful and .we don't look after
the interest of the people of Belle
Glade, we're going to wake up
one morning and all the people in
Belle Glade has moved out of
here, the tax base has moved out
of here and we've got nothing.
We're sitting out here with no tax
base or nothing. We've got to
think about the future of Belle
Glade and look after the people
that pay the bills.
Q: What is your favorite song?
A: When I was a kid, growing
up, there used to be a song,
"Amazing Grace". Because it's
very touching and everything.
Very, very touching.
Q: What irks you?
A: What irks me is not being

thing worthy of praise, think
about these things."
Paul understood the influ-
ence of one's thoughts on one's
life. What a person allows to
occupy his or her mind will
sooner or later determine his or
her speech and action. Paul's
exhortation to "think about such
things" is followed by a second
exhortation, "put it into prac-
tice". Thinking about our core
values is important. Putting
them into practice will result in a
life of moral and spiritual excel-
lence.
As we go forth, we also need
to remember the value of family
and friends. As challenging as
they might be at times, family
and friends are an important
part of the support system for
who we are and what we can
become. It took me a while to
realize this. Sometimes the
prodigal needs to face the pig-
pens to realize the blessing of
family. Sometimes the blessing
is realized sooner. Sometimes a
burned bridge needs to be
rebuilt. Sometimes the blood
relationships are not there, and a
surrogate family needs to be


found. But away with this
maudlin!
The exciting challenge for
graduates and for all of us is to
approach life with a can-do spir-
it. Dream big and chase your
dreams. You will have your fail-
ures, but you will grow from
every honest effort. And even if
you don't get what you think you
want, amazing things will hap-
pen. Just remember to keep God
in the equation!
Life is filled with possibilities.
Accept the challenge to explore
these possibilities with open
hearts arid sting faith, knowing
that you can 'do all things
through'^Him who gives you
strength.
As you go forth to meet life's
challenges and opportunities,
may God go before you to
defend you, may He come
behind you to protect you, and
may He walk along side of ybu
to befriend you. May God reside
underneath you to uplift you,
may He rest above you to bless
you, and may He dwell within
you to give you peace, now and
forever more! Amen!


New beginnings and new choices to come


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's
Church, Clewiston
Sometimes the root of a word
helps us know about something
beyond just the meaning. I
remember "graduation" mean-
ing the same thing as "com-
mencement".
It's when
school came ',-
to an end and :. .
you .graduat-
ed. The serv- -'
ice, though,,
was called
"commence-
ment". That
word by itself Rev.Samuel
has nothing to ev.Samuel
do with some- S.Thomas
thing coming
to an end, but about something
that is to begin! In fact, that's
what "commencement" is
about.
This is a season of the year
when people graduate from
schools around the world -
ready to begin the next steps in
their lives. Commencement will
mean making new choices. I
remember directing an under-
graduate program at the Univer-
sity of Miami when I was in grad-
uate school.
A young lady just out of high
school told me that she needed
to be away from the class one
day because of something
important. I told her that she
was making a choice. She told
me again that it was important
to her, and I told her again that it
would be her choice. I thought
that she wanted me to say that it
would be OK for her to be away,
but I felt that a part of her experi-
ence was to be accountable in
her choosing where she would
spend her time.
She added that she was par-
ticipating in a tennis tournament


and that is was a very important
event in her life. I told her that
each choice had its plus. sides
and minus sides that left her
very unhappy. She was mad at
me because I wouldn't say it
was OK. That wasn't my place
and that wouldn't help her face
growing up. I felt that maybe her
prior experiences didn't require
her to choose between her vari-
ous felt obligations and things
she wanted to do. Now it was
time to share in a part of a more
grownup world when she would
be accountable.
I recall while working my way
through undergraduate courses.
I had to choose one term
between taking time off from
work and writing papers or doing
less in a course where I wanted
off and lose the income, thinking
that what I did in school would
make a greater difference in my
life than the extra dollars that I
would have saved.
The choices I made in high
school weren't as important,
wouldn't make a lasting differ-
ence, didn't have the same
impact on my life as they were to
come to have as I grew beyond
school. There is an admonition
in the Old Testament from
Deuteronomy (30:19) when God
speaks to His people about
choices; "This is day I call Heav-
en and Earth as witnesses
against you, that I have set
before you life and death, bless-
ings and curses. Now choose
life, so that you and your chil-
dren may live and that you may
love the Lord your God..." I did-
n't have every new choice I con-
fronted to be a life-or-death deci-
sion, nor did graduation bring
drastic consequences for whatI
chose. I was confronted each
day with many more choices
than ever before, though, and
the end of the structured world


of high school and the sheltered
world of living at home brought
new opportunities and new
potential pitfalls.

The admonition from God
was that I was to choose rightly
and choose well when I had a
thousand-and-one opportunities
.set before me. Commencement
will mean new choices opening
and choices now that will have


more lasting implications than
ever before. May each choice be
a time of choosing life, and each
opportunity bring fulfillment of
the person God intends us to be.
May the many doors that open
and many new things in life that
begin, that "commence" now,
show us new and wonderful
faces of God's world and His
place for us in it.

need help. When we have the
ability to help and we don't help,
that irks me more than anything.
(Q: When did this philanthropic
spirit come out?) I came from a
small community in Tennessee,
from a poor family, a family of 12.
My family was very, very poor, but
I was proud of it, I loved my moth-
er and father and I loved my
brothers and sisters. I saw other
people have the things that we
couldn't have, but that didn't
change my feelings toward my
parents and my family. That right
there, I guess, is what made me a
caring person because I wanted
to other people, especially my
kids, have the things that I could-
n't have when I was a child grow-
ing up. I understand people's
needs and I feel for people. It's a
hurting situation.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dear?
A: The birth of my two sons.
Don and Larry. Only two children
I have, I have also a stepdaughter.
(Q: Did you want sons?) Yes. I got
my wish.
(Q: Have they made you
proud?) Yes they have. They've
never been in trouble. They've
always respected me. In anything
they've ever done, they've always
called me or asked me for my
opinion. I felt like they always
cherished my opinion. One of
them has graduated from college,
which makes me proud. The
other one will graduate in Decem-
ber, which makes me proud.
I gave them advice: "Son if you
tell somebody something, always
do it, if you tell somebody you're
going to do something, honor it.
Never go back on what you say."
They honor that.

Crist hails young


girl's survival


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued a
statement in response to the lat-
est incidents in which three
young Florida girls were abduct-
ed and sexually abused. In two
of the cases, a convicted crimi-
nal, out on probation, allegedly
has confessed to abducting and
raping girls ages 13 and 7; in the
other case, police rescued an 8-
year-old girl who had been
abducted, raped and left for
dead under rocks and concrete
in a landfill.
"In the past 24 hours, Florida
has borne witness to the all-too-
familiar reports of abduction and
rape of young girls. Mercifully,
this time the shocking incidents
did not end in the ultimate


tragedy of murder, as did the
horrifying cases of Carlie Brucia,
Jessica Lunsford and Sarah
Lunde.
"For the past two years, the
Attorney General's Office has led
the fight for a law to keep violent
probation violators in jail. While
recent statutory changes will
help protect Florida's innocent
children and other potential vic-
tims, this weekend's reports
show that we must do more. I
will continue to fight for this
common-sense legislation.
Meanwhile, we all pray that
Florida's most innocent citizens
are spared from the monstrous
deeds that have already befallen
too many young girls," said Crist.

'Click it or ticket'


campaign
Starting May 23rd through
June 5th, law enforcement offi-
cers throughout the state of
Florida will be enforcing the
annual Click It or Ticket seatbelt
enforcement campaign.
The safety belt use rate in
Florida is the highest it has ever
been at 76.3 percent but that still
leaves a large portion of Florida's
motorists risking their lives by
riding unbuckled. The Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office is
joining law enforcement across
the state of Florida in an effort to
save those who don't buckle up.
Click It or Ticket, the nation-
wide safety belt enforcement
wave, is being imAplemented
with public awareness events in
communities across the State.
During this time, state and local
law enforcement throughout
Florida will show zero tolerance
for motorists who fail to use their
safety belts.
Research from the National
Highway Traffic Safety Adminis-
tration (NHTSA) shows that driv-
ers and passengers who do not

times more likely to die in a traf-
fic crash than those who use' --.,
their safety belt. Out of all of the L*
holidays last year, Memorial Day
Holiday was the deadliest, with
the highest recorded fatality rate
per hour, even surpassing New
Years and Fourth of July.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office believes the only
proven way to get significant
increases in seatbelt use are
through high visibility enforce-
ment and intense advertising in
order to alert people about the
enforcement.
With support from NHTSA
and the Florida Department of
Transportation, The Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office and law
enforcement agencies across Dial
Florida join forces with more D iI
than 12,000 law enforcement
agencies in all 50 states, the Dis-
trict of Columbia and Puerto
Rico in conducting heightened
awareness and enforcement FRE
activities as part of the 2005 Click
It or Ticket effort.


Glades County targets student drug use


The Office of Drug Control
recently awarded the Glades
Drug Reduction Coalition a grant
to take the lead role in reducing
the availability and consumption
'of alcoholic beverages by per-
sons under 21 years of age. Alco-
,hol is the most commonly used
,drug among Glades County stu-
dents with binge drinking more


prevalent than tobacco, marijua-
na and other illicit drug use.
Of the students surveyed in
Glades County in 2004, 58.3 per-
cent have used alcohol on at
least one occasion in their life-
times. Middle school students
reported a higher then average
rate of binge drinking (five or
more drinks in a row within the


past two weeks).
The Glades Drug Reduction
Coalition is taking the lead to
educate students, parents and
the community about the risks
associated with underage drink-
ing. The Coalition .will be work-
ing with the schools, law
enforcement, businesses and
organizations and others to


increase critical awareness of
alcohol issues within the com-
munity.
If you would like to become a
member of the Glades Drug
Reduction Coalition or would
like further information, please

Farm delegation to Washington D.C.


WASHINGTON, D.C. Flori-
da Farm Bureau Federation
(FFBF) members traveled to
Washington, D.C. this month to
visit with Florida's congressional
delegation concerning issues
important to Florida agriculture,
allowing the Florida delegation to
make informed voting decisions
related to those issues. Nearly 80
members and staff participated in
the three-day event called "Field
to the Hill 2005."
"The investment that our
members have made in time and
effort on this trip will pay divi-
dends for Florida agriculture,"
said Carl Loop Jr., president of
Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
"I am pleased that our members
brought important agricultural
issues to Florida's congressional
delegation and to the appropriate
agencies."
Issues the farm group dis-
cussed with congressional mem-
bers included immigration
reform, the national animal iden-
tification program, country-of-ori-
gin labeling and trade issues.
"Building relationships with
staffs and members is essential,"
said Casey Welch, coordinator of
national affairs for Florida Farm
Bureau. "In addition, this was a
great opportunity to have Sen.
Mel Martinez and Congressman
Adam Putnam provide perspec-
tive into the 109th Congress."
FFBF members also met with


officials from the United States
Department of Agriculture Animal
and Plant Health Inspection Ser-
vice, Dr. Richard Dunkle, deputy
administrator for Plant Protection
and Quarantine (PPQ) program,
and Valerie Ragan, assistant
deputy administrator for Veteri-
nary Services. They discussed
country-of-origin labeling
(COOL), national animal identifi-
cation and issues surrounding
plant safeguarding and Quaran-
tine 37.
The USDA has made great
progress in the latest version of
the rules to implement country-
of-origin labeling and the industry
is providing additional sugges-
tions on improving the rules
before they are finally implement-
ed. Efforts now are focused on
providing input to the USDA to
make sure the law is implement-
ed in 2006 in a way that addresses
the concerns of the entire market
system.
The National Farm Animal
Identification and Records Act
requires the secretary of agricul-
ture to establish an electronic
nationwide livestock identifica-
tion system to enhance the speed
and accuracy of the USDA's
response to outbreaks of disease
in livestock. Because livestock dis-
eases are not constrained by state
boundaries, the livestock identifi-
cation system will apply to all live-
stock born in the United States or


imported, and cover the move-
ment of livestock in both inter-
state and intrastate commerce.
The livestock identification sys-
tem will be capable of tracing,
within 48 hours, livestock from
birth to slaughter.
Because of its location, climate
and status as a gateway for inter-
national trade, Florida is particu-
larly vulnerable to invasive pests
and diseases. Quarantine 37 is a
federal rule that prohibits the
importation of foreign plants with
soil attached into the United
States since it is in the soil where
pests and diseases often hide or
hitchhike. It is not an economic
tariff, but is a scientifically based
quarantine. USDA-APHIS must
ensure that Q-37's biological
integrity is maintained, or the
United States will face the intro-
duction of new foreign pests and
diseases not only on nursery
plants but also other agricultural
commodities.
Agricultural trade is essential
to the success of U. S. agriculture
as a whole, and export markets
will continue to become more
and more important to Florida's
producers. The Florida Farm
Bureau Federation supports free
and fair trade, in which import-
sensitive crops are given due con-
sideration.
Florida also needs a depend-
able labor supply in order to
maintain agriculture in the state.


Florida Farm Bureau Federation
supports immigration reform that
would allow workers to find jobs
and employers to find workers,
quickly and simply. The program
should provide a more secure
homeland and allow for efficient
management of all people who
cross our borders. And it should
be a more compassionate system
to protect all workers in America
with labor laws, the right to
change jobs, fair wages and a
healthy work environment.

The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with more than 150,000 member-
families statewide. There are
Farm Bureaus representing 64
counties in Florida, where agricul-
ture comprises a stable, vital leg
of Florida's economy, rivaling the
tourism industry in economic
importance. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, non-profit agricul-
tural organization and is not asso-
ciated with any arm of the govern-
ment. More information about
Florida Farm Bureau is available
on the organization's Web site,
http://FloridaFarmBureau.org.

Love bugs are back
Once again it's love bug season in South Florida. The
insects, which mate in flight and seem to be attracted to
area highways, are a nuisance to motorists. The bugs are
native to Central American and slowly migrated to Flori-
da over the past 50 years. They have a six-month lifecy-
cle and are often seen in May and September. An adult
love bug only lives about 72 hours.


A pretty Lily for Florida yards


Last week I was brought a
plant to identify by an Okee-
chobee resident. To me, it's an
old time friend. Over the years I
enjoyed watching it grow up
fences and trellises in South
Florida. Then I found out that it
was poisonous, so I backed off
my enthusiastic green thumb.
Our local visitor renewed my
interest in the Gloriosa Lily. I've
also discovered there are a
small, but growing number of
enthusiastic plant lovers who are
looking for this unusual tropical
lily,, and limited number of nurs-
eries that are making it available
for gardeners and commercial
florists. This week's column will
highlight what we know about
growing and using this exotic
climbing beauty.
Gloriosa Lilies may have sev-
eral different common names in
the nursery trade, including
Flame Lily, Glory Lily or Climb-
ing Lily. Those found in the land-
scape are usually a cultivated
variety of Gloriosa superba. The
named species and varieties of
this plant differ in the plant size,
waviness of the petals, and the
different amounts of red and yel-
low flower colors. For example,
there is a variety called Lutea,
which has pure yellow flowers
with slender petals.
Gloriosa Lilies grow from a
fleshy underground tuber. As the
plant grows through warm sea-
son, this storage structure pro-
duces two forks that are shaped
like miniature sweet potatoes.
This shape may account for
some of the cases of poisoning.
In some area of its native
range of Africa and Asia, this
plant has been over-collected.
The wide spread use of its tubers
for medicinal purposes has led
to its disappearance from some
areas. The Gloriosa Lily has been
named the National Flower of
Zimbabwe. This flower, know as
"Karthigaipoo" to the Tamil
Tiger rebels of Sri Lanka, is also
their "national" symbol because
of its dangerous qualities and
brilliant coloring.


Grads, may \ou reach great
heights of success and
happiness. We're behind
you eery step of the %way.
Hendry County Supervisor of Elections

All parts of the plant contain a
chemical called colchicine. Plant
scientists may recognize this
chemical as the one, which will
double up the chromosomes in
a plant's DNA, and it is used in
hybridizing plants. This poison is
a problem if any part of the plant
is swallowed, especially the
tubers. Initial poisoning symp-
toms of colchicine develop in 2-6
hours. Contact our office or our
Web page if you need to know
more about symptoms or first
aid for poisoning.
The plants are well adapted
to growing on trellises, and can
be placed in containers indoors
as houseplants. They do well in
most of Florida in the landscape.
Their thin stems are covered
with pairs of 3-4 inch long glossy
leaves, tipped at-the ends with
curly tendrils that. help them
climb fences or walls. Glory lily
plants can stretch up to heights
from three to eight feet tall.
As with many knock-your-
socks-off tropical plants, brilliant
flower colors are the reason for
adding this plant to your Florida
Yard. Flower buds appear
between the leaf and the stem,
and when the greenish capsules
.open, a 4- to 5-inch lily explodes
way back on itself with six wavy-
edged yellow, orange or red
petals.
Choose sunny locations for
the Gloriosa Lily for good
growth, although partially shady
spots may be enough. Well-
drained rich soils will support
better growth, but avoid planting
this flowering tropical perennial
in areas with high salts.
If you find nursery grown
plants, they can be planted in
your Florida yard like any other
container plant. Often this plant
is only available as a tuber. If this
is your source of planting stock,
place the L- or V-shaped "root"
in a two-inch deep hole. Better
results have been seen when this
tuber is laid flat in the planting
hole.
Once growing, provide suffi-
cient water to prevent wilting,


and add fertilizers as needed to
promote maximum plant height,
ensuring a maximum number of
blooms. Because they have
weak stems, carefully tying up
the stems on supporting fences
or trellises may help extend the
blooming period.
Blooms from this plant can
be used as cut flowers. Flowers
cut just before the petals bend
back may last up to eight days in
an arrangement splitting the
stem end before placing it in the
vase will improve water uptake.
Some florists are growing the
Gloriosa as a floral crop to make
bloom available for floral bou-
quets.
Unless the seed are desired to
grow, more plants, remove the
capsules to promote continued
growth of this plant. On the
other hand, manually self polli-
nating the plant will increase the
number of seed produced. The
pods will contain round reddish
seeds, which can be replanted
into containers to produce new
plants.
Seeds sprout slowly and
make take at much as four
months to get started. Seedlings
will form tubers within a year,
but should be given three grow-
ing seasons before placing them
in the landscape.
There are few pests that both-'
er this plant. Aphids may be con-
trolled with soap sprays if need-
ed, and large chewing insects
can be picked off by hand. Other
insect pests should be identified
before an insecticide is applied.
After blooming, gradually
reduce watering and protect the
ground from cool, damp condi-
tions. Gloriosa should survive
our Florida winter temperatures
in the ground. If desired, the
,tubers can be carefully dug and
divided in two after the vine dies
back. Be sure to include a grow-
ing point on each division. In
colder areas, dormant tubers
can be carefully dug, placed in
moist peat moss and brought
inside to protect them from tem-
peratures below 20 degrees.


Today is the first day of the rest of

of it but celebrate safely!

History: Grandfather and father


By MaryAnn Morris
Editor's note: Daniel M.
McCarthy, son of Okeechobee pio-
neer, Daniel B. McCarthy, passed
away Feb. 24, 2005 at the age of
82.
In recognition of his contribu-
tions to the Lake Okeechobee
area, we will feature some of the
family's history and stories for our
readers. Some information for this
article was previously published in
the Okeechobee News in 1986 in
the history series by 7vila Valen-
tine. Mr. McCarthy's daughter,
Monica McCarthy Clark shared
family photos and some of her
memories with us. We begin with
the coming of the first McCarthy,
DanielB. McCarthy toFlorida.
"My great-grandfather, Daniel
McCarthy (no middle initial) lived
in Nebraska. In 1905 he bought
26,000 acres in Florida sight
unseen," said Mrs. Clark. "Six years
later, in 1911, he asked my grandfa-
ther, Daniel B. McCarthy, the oldest
of his 15 living children and a recent
engineering school graduate, to go
to Okeechobee, then called Tantie,
and survey the land he had pur-
chased." He must have liked what
he saw, because he decided to stay
and worked on dredge boats oper-
ating on Lake Okeechobee.
"He borrowed $1,000 from my
great-grandfather and built a build-
ing on the northwest corner of Park
Street and Fifth Avenue, where he
opened the D. B. McCarthy General
Store in 1915, the year the name of
the town Tantie changed to Okee-
chobee. His store had three stores
in one: A grocery store, a clothing
store and a combination hardware
and feed store," she continued,
"The building where Lawn Tamer
is nowwas part of his store.
"When World War I broke out
in 1917, he enlisted, leaving the
store in the hands of his older
brother, J. David McCarthy and his
wife Celia, who had come from
Omaha to work the store while he
was at war. Dave was connected to
the store until his retirement and
death.
"After the war, Dave and Celia
had decided to stay in Okee-
chobee. Dan divided the store with
Dave, keeping the hardware por-
tion for himself. He had fallen in
love with Marie Futrell, a local
schoolteacher before the war, so
when he came back to Okee-
chobee, he married her in 1919. His
engineering background led him
into the plumbing and building
business.
"The brothers built their houses
in 1921 from lumber cut from their
grandfather's original land pur-
chase: Dave and Celia at the corner
of N.W. Second Street and Fourth
Avenue, across the street from
where the Okeechobee County
Courthouse would later be. The
house still stands, painted blue
with white trim, and now houses
the law office of John Cassels. My
grandfather and grandmother built
their house at 111 N.W. 2nd Street,
where Inkwell Printing is now,"
said Mrs. Clark.
Twila Valentine of the Okee-
chobee News interviewed Mr.
Daniel M. McCarthy March 11,
1986. He shared these colorful
memories of his pioneer father,
Dan McCarthy, Sr.
There was no paved road
between Okeechobee and the trip
to Fort Pierce took several days for
more than a decade. Everything
was ordered and came by rail. Even
with the train, there was nothing
until you got to St. Augustine.
The fishing industry was going
full blast on Lake Okeechobee and
there was a tremendous amount of
trot fishing. So, feeling he would
have no trouble selling them, his
father ordered an entire boxcar
load of fishhooks. The company
from which he purchased the fish-
hooks sent a salesman to find out
why anyone would want an entire
carload of hooks. He told the sales-
man, 'I'm going to sell them, but if
they (the company) are concerned,
I'll pay for them now.'
His credit had been well estab-
lished, so the salesman was flab-
bergasted when he next discov-
ered that Daniel B. wanted to pay
him in cash. His son recalled that
his father always sent cash in the
mail to pay for the inventory he
purchased for the store.
Daniel B. was a very large man
and it was quite difficult to find
clothes to fit him. Mr. Anthony had
a department store that would
measure and fit the man who wore
a size 54 jacket, had a 19-inch neck
and 37-inch long arms. His hands
were so large, his son said, he
could hide a baseball in this hand.
So, once a year he would make
the journey to West Palm Beach to
get his clothing, and to go to con-
fession, since there was no Catholic
priest coming to Okeechobee at
that time. The trip would start with


a boat trip part way down the east
side of the lake. From there, he
would walk the rest of the way.
Daniel M. said the trip took three
days each way.
Daniel B. would love to tell the
story that one time when he went
to confession at a church in West
Palm Beach the priest began to
chastise him because it had been a
year since he had last went to con-
fession. He laughed as he related
the story, but never told the priest

he had walked three days to make
it once year.
The two Irish brothers and
Daniel M. related a story to illustrate
the sense of humor that existed
between them. "Dave was five
years older than Daddy," he said.
"People would ask if Daddy was
any kin to Uncle Dave. Daddy
would say, 'I understand we are dis-
tant relatives. He is the oldest and I
am the youngest of 17 children.' It
wasn't true of course, but it made a
story because they were teasing all
the time. Dave was red-headed and
almost baldheaded. Daddy has a
mass of coal black hair. If you saw
them together, the facial features
were alike, but if you saw them
apart, you would wonder if they
were related or just both had the

same last name.
"My grandparents had three
children," continued Mrs. Clark,
"my dad, Daniel Marion McCarthy,
and his sisters, Kathleen and Lee."
So, Daniel B. grew up in Okee-
chobee. "He wasn't known as
"Dan" growing up," Mrs. Clark
explained. "Everyone in town
knew him as Marion to avoid the
confusion of having two Dan
McCarthys in town.
"In 1929, when my father was 7
-years -old, my grandfather started
a side business. This was at the


height of the Depression. No one
had money for new building, so my
grandfather arranged to bring
propane gas to Okeechobee by rail
from Tampa, offering refrigeration
to Okeechobee residents for the
first time. At that time there were
gas refrigerators and not everyone
around had electricity."
"My father went to school here
and played football on the high
school team, the Okeechobee Cat-
fish. After school he worked in the
store for my grandfather, learning
the business from him," she said,

Chamber gets $50,000 tourism grant


PAHOKEE VISIT FLORIDA,
the state's official source for
travel planning, has allocated a
Hurricane Impact Marketing
Grant to the Pahokee Chamber
of Commerce to aid tourism-
marketing efforts.
VISIT FLORIDA allocated
$50,000 to support the Pahokee
Chamber of Commerce. Grant
'applications were scored by an
independent committee com-
prised of tourism industry repre-
sentatives. The Pahokee Cham-
ber of Commerce was one of 10
organizations from across the
state receiving a portion of mar-
keting funds totaling $475,000.
"The Hurricane Impact Grant
Program provides Florida's com-
munities a valuable tool to mar-
ket their region in .a positi~,
light, as well as addrei&ny lin-
gering misperceptions stem-
ming from the 2004 storm sea-
son," said Governor Bush. "The
marketing grants will be geared
to encourage visitation through
instilling the message that Flori-
da is wide open for business,
and that the Sunshine State is a
safe, sensible, and preferred
travel destination choice any
time of the year."
"We were pleased to be
selected from more than 20
applicants," said Alice Thomp-
son, executive secretary for the
Pahokee Chamber of Com-
merce. "These funds will be
used for a new visitor's guide;
the distribution of the new guide
in more than 33 targeted loca-
tions in the Northern and Mid-
Western states, the Welcome


Centers throughout the state of
Florida; and a new and
improved Web site with many
additional links and pages. All of
these new tools will help us bet-
ter position Pahokee as a desir-
able destination."
Eligibility to receive an award
under the grants program
required applicants to demon-
strate adverse economic impact,
such as decline in sales tax, or
tourist development tax result-
ing from a named hurricane
occurring in 2004. Other criteria
included demonstrated lodging
loss resulting from hurricanes,
detailed program concepts,
samples of negative publicity
from the weather and projec-
tions on their area's recovery of
tourism infrastructure.
In order for applicants to
receive a grant allocation, they
also must be a destination mar-
keting organization such as a
convention and visitor bureau, a
tourist development council or a
chamber of commerce.

TigersLaw Offices of Robert L. Vaughn, PA.


Local fans got a sneak preview
at Cane Field on Thursday night of
what will be in store for the upcom-
ing football season as they watched
the Clewiston Tigers manhandle
the Class 6A Lake Worth Trojans,
31-0.
Clewiston scored early and
often, racking up a 21-0 first quarter
lead and adding 10 more points to
close out the half. Sophomore
Quarterback Jared Combass and
an impressive stable of running
backs, featuring speed from the tail-
back spot and hard running from
the fullback position, led the Tigers
offensively.
Combass completed five of
seven passes for 81 yards, kicked
four extra points and added a 25-
yard field goal.
After the intermission, Coach
Tommy Morrell used extensive sub-
stitution, as his staff evaluated the
depth of the Tiger squad in prepara-
tion for the coming year, which will
be his third as Tiger head coach.
Clewiston kicked off to begin
the game and the Combass kick
went through the end zone. From
their 20, the Trojans marched back-
wards as a swarming Tiger defense
pinned them for three straight loss-
es. A short Trojan punt put the Tiger
offense in business at the Lake
Worth 42 and it wasn't long before
the Tigers were in scoring position.
Tailbacks Jamal Hubert and
Richard Pope moved the ball on the
ground and Combass hit Fullback
Carl Whitehead in the flats and he
turned it up field for a 12-yard gain
setting up the Tigers' first score.
Richard Pope got the final three
yards off tackle and Combass con-
verted the extra point. Late in the
quarter, Combass threw a pass
downfield that slipped through the
up stretched hands of the intended
receiver only to find Lamarcus
McGriff waiting in the end zone for
a 15-yard touchdown reception.
Combass again converted the
extra point.
The score came with 57 sec-
onds left in the quarter. The Tigers
quickly took the ball back from the
Trojans and Jamal Hubert broke
free and trotted untouched for a 21-
yard score, as the quarter came to a
close.
In the second period, Tailback
Randi Scott found pay-dirt on ayard
dive. Combass completed his per-
fect night of extra points and then


The varsity Tiger cheerleaders kept the fans alive with flawless technique and dazzling execution.

he later added a 25-yard field goal
with 3:10 left in the half.
The Trojans, who barely made it
to the game on time due to a trans-
portation mix-up, might have
wished they hadn't made it at all.
They were clearly outmatched by
the Tigers on both sides of the ball.
Their only bright spot on the
evening was the running of Tail-
back Winston Thompson who did
get outside for long runs of 39 and
20yards.
However, there was no sus-
tained offense and the Trojans bare-
ly penetrated Tiger territory during
the entire game.
The Tiger defense was led by
solid line play by Jamal Hubert,
Pedro Diaz and William Bigham,
backed up by Linebacker Carl
Whitehead. The Tiger running
offense was impressive with both
its speed and depth. Hubert, White-
head, Richard Pope, and White
were joined by D.J. Bartlett and
Collin Ricketts in piling up 155 yards
rushing in the first half on 23
attempts.
Receiver Lamarcus McGriff also

pulled in a 33 yard pass with a daz-
zling display of good hands on a
sideline pattern and wide out Nate
Brinkley also had a nice catch on a
25-yard play.
Coach Tommy Morrell is cau-
tiously optimistic about the 2006
squad. He said, "We've got a lot of


work to do on our offensive line, as
they are unseasoned and we lack
depth at those positions. But, our
starters do have good size and have
been making progress in practice.
One of our keys to success will be
continuing to progress and avoid-
ing injuries."

Baby
Continued From Page 1
Cris Bottari, and Firefighters Bush
and Jones got to work.
And then the shouting began
... the police chief's. We'll get to
the woman later.
Police Chief Calipto Gonzalez,
who was standing outside of the
police department building when
he heard a shout crying for help,
was a perfectly arranged figure of
disorder. Even a few days after the
incident, he continued getting
heckled for the calm he exhibited
in the face of the delivery. Usually
cool when confronted with bust-
ing narcotic traffickers or arrest-


ing the ardent criminal for his mis-
deed, Calipto was a ball of nerv-
ous energy wrapped inside of a
man.
"I felt like I was the expecting
father," said Chief Gonzalez, who
radioed for help without remem-
bering exact details. "I need help,
I need AMR, I need fire rescue,"
the chief was overheard on the
radio, though he was standing
outside the fire rescue building at
the time of the call. "Where am I,"
he asked himself? He couldn't
quite get any clear'sentences out.
Still, everything worked out for
the best, and the baby was deliv-
ered fine. The inevitable hap-
pened and the woman's water
broke. Told not to push by Lt. Bot-
tari so emergency workers could


respond, the woman couldn't
help it and pulled her pants below
her knees and the baby came out,
caught by Bottari.
The child, a baby boy, had his
mouth cleaned before para-
medics arrived and let out a cry
that sounded healthy enough for
a baby born three months prema-
ture. He weighed three pounds,
one ounce. According to the para-
medics, the child was doing fine
in a hospital in Miami, taken there
by precaution, and was expected
to do well.
According to the firefighters,
the husband decided to take his
wife to the fire station out of fear
that his car might not make it to
Glades General Hospital in Belle
Glade. He made a wise decision.


Firefighters played with the
thought that the child would be
born inside of a moving car that
wouldn't have made it as far as
Rardin Park.
"We were definitely on a
high," Mr. Bush later remem-
bered. "They came in at nine-thir-
ty and we delivered at nine-thirty-
five, it was that quick. We were on
Cloud Nine."
And the chief? He was okay. It
was all just a moment's affair, one
of things that catch you off-guard
he said. Still, hadn't he, the father
of several children, had to endure
childbirth before?
"Yeah," he said excitedly, "but
in a hospital. Not in a car."

Time following storm is the


most critical, says EPEI


With the approach of hurri-
cane season on June 1, the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute (EPEI) has found
that a majority of citizens living
in the affected areas, not only
lack a plan to prepare for a hurri-
cane, but also lack a plan to deal
with the aftermath of the storms.
EPEI found that only 11 per-
cent of residents and businesses
have even the most basic plans
to deal with the aftermath of a
storm. Based upon research
conducted following Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Jeanne, and
Ivan, the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute found
that for a majority of individuals
it was the lack of preparation for
the aftermath of the hurricane
that was the most devastating.
Based upon its findings and
weather predictions of another
heavy hurricane season, EPEI is
strongly urging individuals and
businesses to put into effect a
plan to be prepared following
hurricanes hitting the shore.
"We have found that only 25
percent of individuals and busi-
nesses have begun the most
basic plans to be prepared for a
hurricane hitting their area," said
Norris L. Beren, executive direc-
tor of the Emergency Prepared-
ness Educational Institute and
author of When Disaster Strikes
Home! "While that number is
woefully inadequate, the num-
ber falls even lower when you
ask if they have a basic plan to
put into action following a
storm.
"Based upon our research
findings last year, we found that
it is after the hurricane hits rather
then before the storm that peo-
ple must be most prepared to


cope with," continued Beren.
"Many things that would appear
common sense are overlooked
in the aftermath of these storms.
This lack of planning can be
fatal."
Among the most important
things that EPEI recommends for
both businesses and individuals
is the need to have an effective
communications plan in place.
Among the steps that EPEI found
were overlooked and is urging
that citizens be prepared for are:
Bring a three-day supply of
clothes, supplies, and food and
water, batteries, cleaning sup-
plies, medicine, cash, portable
radio.
Make sure your gasoline
tank is as full as possible when
you return.
Have alternate shelter plans
if you cannot remain home
because of flooding, damage,
etc.
Plan ahead what type of
meals you can serve if you have
no power and purchase food
supplies appropriately.
Buy an inexpensive power
Inverter that you can plug into
your car cigarette lighter to cre-
ate enough house electricity to
power light duty appliances such
as a fan or battery charger.
.* Make sure you have a cur-
rent picture I.D. to gain access to
your home or business loca-
tions.
Notify family members out-
side of area when you have
arrived.
Check outside of home,
roof, walls, chimney etc. and see
if it all appears safe before enter-
ing.
Open closets and cup-
boards carefully and watch for


falling objects.
Check operation of septic
system if you have one.
When resetting circuit
breakers, wear dry, rubber-soled
shoes and stand on something
dry such as a wood board.
Use only one hand when
touching circuit breaker.
After the storm be careful of
poisonous snakes, insects, and
other wildlife that may be dislo-
cated by the storm.
Assume all stairs, floors,
and roofs are unsafe until
inspected.
Avoid turning on power if
there is floodwater present.
Always ask for identifica-
tion before allowing anyone to
enter your residence.
Prevent mold by sanitizing
personal property, clothes, furni-
ture, shelves that hold food and
clothes, including areas where
children play.
Steam clean carpeting and
upholstered furniture.
Use bleach with water (one
cup of bleach to five gallons of
water) and other disinfectants to
neutralize bacteria.
"Last year following the dev-
astating hurricane season over
63 percent of those affected did
not have a plan in place that cov-
ered these items resulting in a
delay in recovery efforts," said
Beren. "It cannot be emphasized
enough that preparation for after
one of these deadly storms is just
as critical as preparing for the
storm."
Additional information on the
Emergency Preparedness Educa-
tional Institute and preparation
steps may, be obtained at
www.getprepared.org.


More hurricanes predicted


The 2004 hurricane season
wvas a learning experience for
many Floiidians.
According to the Florida
Department of Financial Services'
study publication, "The Differ-
ence a Decade Makes". In 1992
Hurricane Andrew caused $20.5
billion in today's dollars in a small
area of the state. In 2004, four
hurricanes caused about the
same dollar amount of damage,
but across the entire state.
From 1970 to 2000 Florida's
population increased 150 per-
cent, according to the Office of


Economic and Demographic
Research of the Florida Legisla-
ture. It is estimated to increase
another 46 percent in the next 25
years. The majority of Florida's
population arrived during years
when there was relatively little
hurricane activity. Today, most of
the scientific analysis of tropical
storm patterns suggests long-
term there will be a much higher
incidence of hurricane activity.
"We foresee an above-aver-
age hurricane season for the
Atlantic basin in 2005," said the


April 1,2005 report by William M.
Gray and Paul J. Klotzbach,
researchers with the University of
Colorado. "We have adjusted our
forecast upward from our early
December forecast and may fur-
ther raise our prediction in our
later updates if we can be sure El
Ni-o conditions will not develop.
The probability of one major (cat-
egory 3-4-5) hurricane landfall for
the east coast including the Flori-
da peninsula is 53 percent as
compared to 31 percent average
for the last century."

es hurricane disaster kits should
include the following items:
First aid kit and essential med-
ications.

per person (that is just minimal
drinking water for drinking for
three days you will need more
water (cooking or washing).
Protective clothing, rainwear.
Bedding or sleeping bags.
Battery-powered radio, flash-
light, and extra batteries.
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members.


Written instructions on how
to turn off electricity, gas and water
if authorities advise you to do so.
(Remember, you'll need a profes-
sional to turn them back on.)
Change of clothes for all fami-
ly members.
Other helpful items to have on
hand during hurricane season:
Cash (ATMs may run out of
money or be inoperable)
Coolers and ice
Paper plates, paper cups,
paper napkins (you may hot have
running water to wash dishes).
Chainsaw (to cut up fallen
tree limbs to make them easier to


move).
Battery operated camp fan.
Gas grill with extra supply of
propane gas (to cook food from

photo albums and other items
from water damage).
Rubber storage bins (these
can be used to protect items from
water damage).
Duct tape (Can be used to
securely close storage bins, secure


plastic on top of furniture to protect
it from leaks, tape up broken win-
dows after a storm, etc. In the sum-
mer of 2004, some homeowners
used Duct tape as a temporary fix
to repair a roof, and keep the rain
out until roofers could be found.)

Be prepared throughout hurricane season


It's crucial and possibly life sav-
ing to follow some basic guidelines
when preparing for hurricane sea-
son.
Keep your car's gas tank full.
Don't let it get below half a tank
without refilling. When a hurricane
watch is declared, there may be a
gas shortage. If you plan to evacu-
ate, you will need enough gasoline
to get you out of the hurricane area.
elf you live in a low-lying area or
a home that was damaged by the
2004 storms and has not been
repaired, you should make plans to
stay elsewhere during a storm.
Depending on the severity of the
storm, mobile home dwellers may
be asked to evacuate. Make plans
now to stay with friends, relatives
or a hotel. Use the county's hurri-
cane shelters as aS last resort. Shel-


ters provide protection to save your
life, but are usually crowded and
uncomfortable. If you do go to a
shelter, you will need to take your
own bedding, as you will have to
sleep on the floor.
*Keep cash on hand. If you
have to evacuate, you will need
cash. If the power is out, the ATM
machines will not work and banks
will be closed. Don't wait until the
last minute to get cash, as the ATM
machines may run out.
*Buy extra batteries for all bat-
lery operated items you will want
to use if power is out. This includes
flashlights, radios, televisions and
battery-operated toys. Make sure
you have the right size batteries for
each item. If you haven't put batter-
ies in the radio in more than a year,
you may forget if it takes "C" or "D"


cell batteries. Make a list before you
shop.
*Put all important documents
(insurance documents, birth certifi-
cates, marriage license, auto titles,
etc.) in a waterproof bag or box
and place it where you can easily
find it so you can take it with you if
you have to evacuate.
*Document your possessions,
with a list and with photos or video-
tape. Take photos of home -
inside and out and any other
buildings on your property. Should
your home be destroyed, you will
need proof of what was lost to
show to the insurance company.
Put the list and photos with your
other important documents.
*Decide in advance what you
will do with animals if a hurricane
is headed your way. If you plan to


evacuate and take pets with you,
make sure you have a place for
them. Pets are not allowed at hurri-
cane shelters, but some hotels do
allow guests to bring pets. Live-
stock (horses and cattle) are gener-
ally safer out in an open field than
in a barn. If animals are in a barn
and the barn collapses, they can be
trapped or crushed. Left in an open
field, horses and cattle will use their
own instincts to survive most
just put their backs to the wind and
keep eating. If possible, mark live-
stock (for example, with a water-
proof tag attached to a halter) and
photograph animals to help identi-
fy lost animals should fences be
destroyed by falling trees.


DCF says mental preparation is most important


TALLAHASSEE As May
marks both Mental Health Aware-
ness Month and the eve of the 2005
hurricane season, the Department
of Children & Families is urging
Floridians to mentally prepare
themselves for what is expected to
be a stressful period.
"The psychological effects of
last year's storms are still being felt
by many Florida residents," DCF
Secretary Lucy D. Hadi said. "Once
again, DCF is prepared to offer dis-
aster mental health services if the
need arises again this hurricane
season. We advise Floridians to do
all they can this year to reduce
stress both before and after storms
hit our state this year."
The Department's Mental
Health Program Office has the fol-
lowing self-help tips for residents to


alleviate hurricane-related stress:
Have a hurricane prepared-
ness plan for you and your family.
Be aware of public emer-
gency resources available in your
community.
Draw on the support of your
family, friends, neighbors and cler-
gy.
For parents, know that chil-
dren are affected more by your
reactions, and that of other adults,
to an emergency than the emer-
gency itself. Be mindful of your
behavior during that time.
Optimal physical and psycho-
logical health before and during
hurricane season are important.
Rest, exercise and maintain a
healthy diet. Strive to find a balance
between quiet time and activity.
Try to maintain personal and


family routines as much as possi-
ble.
Some residents of hurricane-
impacted areas will require help in
coping with storm-related stress.
Ready to follow up on its work last
year, department staff is prepared
to provide them crisis counseling.
Disaster mental health services
last year were funded upon DCF's
request by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency. Services this
year would again be contingent on
FEMA funding that DCF would
seek in the event of a major storm
causing widespread damage.
Last year, department crisis
counselors quickly moved out to
areas impacted by hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and Jeanne.
Crisis counseling is short-term help
for individuals trying to recover


from traumatic events. The depart-
ment last year provided crisis coun-
seling to an estimated 153,000
storm victims.
While working in storm-dam-
aged areas last year, counselors
found many hurricane victims suf-
fering from increased stress levels,
anxiety, depression and other con-
ditions requiring more in-depth
help. DCF responded with Project
Recovery, a program to prevent or
treat situational stress, and mal-
adaptive and addictive behaviors.
Funded by an $11 million federal
grant, 14 multi-disciplinary teams
currently are serving 27 hurricane-
damaged counties. The teams pro-
vide assessments, referrals, service
planning and direct services.

a research tool for 10 years at the
Florida Medical Entomology Labo-
ratory in Vero Beach, said despite
the traps' efforts to fool mosquitoes
with C02 and other attractants, the
insects prefer people and animals.
He is concluding a study that
showed C02 traps were signifi-
cantly outperformed by traps that
used live hosts as bait.
Because CO2 traps have only
been available to consumers since
the late 1990s, manufacturers are
still refining the technology, said
Joe Conlon, a staff entomologist
and spokesman with the American
Mosquito Control Association, a
nonprofit organization in New Jer-
sey.
"The attractants don't seem to
be working as well as theoretically
possible, and we need a whole lot
more research into the physiology
of attractiveness of humans to
mosquitoes," Conlon said.
Species-specific attractants
could help consumers solve pest
problems more reliably, said Ray-
mond lannetta, chairman and
chief executive officer of American


Biophysics Corporation, the first
company to produce a C02 mos-
quito trap for the consumer mar-
ket, the Mosquito Magnet trap. The
Rhode Island company is also the
first to develop attractants based on
human skin scents, and recently
introduced an attractant designed
for the Asian tiger mosquito, he
said.
lannetta said consumers and
scientists may view C02 traps with
skepticism because other mosqui-
to control devices such as electric
"bug zappers" are not based on
valid science. He asserts that his
company's products are effective,
and are based on 14 years of rigor-
ous scientific research and testing.
"A significant hurdle was getting
over the industry's gadget or gim-
mick syndrome," he said. "We're
constantly working with the scien-
tific community and the public to
change that perception."
The company maintains an
extensive Web site to educate con-
sumers about the traps, how they
work and how consumers can best
use them, lannetta said.


Experts agree that operator
error can impair a C02 trap's per-
formance, said Dan Kline, a
research entomologist with the
U.S. Department of Agriculture's
Center for Medical, Agricultural
and Veterinary Entomology in
Gainesville.
"It's important that people read
and follow the owner's manual,"
said Kline, who regularly tests C02
traps for manufacturers and is con-
ducting a study to determine if mul-
tiple C02 traps can protect a neigh-
borhood. "Placement is a big issue
-you need to keep the trap out of
the immediate area where people
gather, and try to put it between the
people and the source of the mos-
quitoes."
Another common problem is
that consumers sometimes use the
traps only during outdoor activities,
rather than running then continu-
ously during warm weather, as
manufacturers recommend, he
said. Round the clock operation of
one trap can c.st $20 to $25 per
month.
No one should rely exclusively


on a C02 trap for mosquito con-
trol, said Roxanne Rutledge, an
entomologist at the UF laboratory
in Vero Beach. Consumers should
also follow traditional precautions
such as using repellent, eliminating
sources of standing water and
patching holes in screens.
"Try to keep a balance," she
said. "Do things around your home
to reduce the number of mosqui-
toes that breed or get inside, but
understand there are factors
beyond your control."
Ultimately, a consumer's toler-
ance for mosquito bites may be the
only way to measure success with
a C02 trap, Rutledge said.
"It comes down to a matter of
perception," she said. "You can
have one of these in your yard, and
if you feel like you're not being bit-
ten by mosquitoes anymore and
you're happy with it, then for you it
works."
For more information about C02
mosquito traps, see Rutledge's fact
sheet "Mosquito Control Devices and
Services for Florida Homeowners" at
