City seeks rural designation


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE In an effort
aimed at reducing the overall
burden of cost of the future
Lake Region Water Treatment
Plant on its residents, the city of
Belle Glade is making its appeal
to Washington.
City officials recently visited
the capitol to make their case
on receiving the rural designa-


tion for their community. Under
the designation, the city can
apply for grant funding from the
United States Department of
Agriculture monies that offi-
cials hope may reduce its pres-
ent debt by as much as 75 per-
cent.
If accomplished, the city
looks forward to the opening of
the plant, without resorting to
shifting the cost of the construc-


tion of the plant to taxpayers,
who already pay the highest
water rates in the county.
Up to this point, the city of
Belle Glade has reached out for
help in reducing its debt.
The city of Belle Glade has
entered into an agreement for
the construction of the water
plant that sees it assuming 70
percent of the cost of the plant

Donations to Katrina: Helping the needy


INI/Jose Zaragoza
New Bethel Baptist Church in Belle Glade over the weekend gathered its members to con-
tribute to help the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Church members came early to pitch in,
helping in cooking the food it sold for donations, and packing up necessary supplies to
send over to the hurricane victims. Pictured: Elouise, Danella and Danyla pack up supplies.

meal to distribute for donations. The
church members thought it fitting to help
the victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Even the children at the church got

the other hand are responsible
for 15 percent each.
Following the county and
other organizations stepping up
their efforts to secure funding
for the plant, the cost to the
three cities has been halved.
Still, with the project cost at $44
million, the three cities continue
to face millions in debt.
One recourse for the cities of
Pahokee and South Bay is a


grant opportunity offered by the
USDA. Under that loan, the
cities, which are both eligible
because they are rural commu-
nities, look at the possibility of
significantly reducing their final
cost by millions of dollars.
The city of Belle Glade is
looking at that same grant
opportunity.

Police arrest



three suspects



for kidnapping


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE In
response to an armed kidnap-
ping that occurred in Belle
Glade recently, the Belle Glade
Police Department put two of
its finest on the job, leading to
the arrest of three individuals in
connection with the case.
Police say a man washing
his car on the night of Sept. 25,
was overtaken by four individu-
als one of them armed with
a gun forced into the trunk
of his own car and taken to the
marina, where at least one of
the suspects tried to convince
the others to kill him.
The suspects: stole the vic-
tim's car and then dumped him
at the marina before leads took
police straight to them.
Police found the car else-
where in the city, and witnesses
stepped forward to provide
information on the drivers of


the vehicle. With the leads in
place, police took at least one
of the suspects into custody for
questioning, releasing him
later as he continued to deny
involvement in the kidnapping.
According to Chief Albert
Dowdell, the police did not let
up on the suspect, bringing
him to the station once more
after he threatened a student at
Lake Shore, believing that that
student's parent had supplied
information to police regarding
his involvement in the robbery.
With police bearing down
harder on him, he talked.
The suspect, Quadale Seay,
17, then told police he had
been a part of the incident, but
said he abandoned his three
partners in crime as soon as
they talked about murdering
the victim.
He said he and three others

Glades Summit


focus on funding


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE For one
day last week, area leaders
joined for a comprehensive
discussion focusing on the
most pertinent issues facing
the Glades today at the Tri
Cities Economic Development
Summit.
The meeting at the Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Center Oct.
4 provided a forum for leaders
and representatives to prepare
a package of topics it will pres-
ent to .authorities at Palm
Beach County next month at
its economic summit.
Glades leaders said they
hope to make use of the.
results to make a greater
impact at the county's sum-
mit, to ensure that the voice of
the Glades is not lost among
so many other municipalities


scheduled to take part in that
meeting.
A host of presenters filled
the agenda for the all-day
event. County representatives,
including Economic Develop-
ment Specialist Pam Nolan
and Water Utilities Director
Bevin Beaudet were on hand
to participate in the discus-
sion. Representatives of the
local agricultural companies
made an appearance, as well
as employees of the South
Florida Water Management
District, the School District of
Palm Beach County and the
United States Department of
Agriculture, to name a few.
State Representative Priscilla
Taylor, as well as Art Kennedy
with Congressman Alcee Hast-
ings' office spoke.

Sprinkles over Belle Glade


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE To the
great surprise and pleasure
- of children throughout the
area, Sprinkles, a new business
specializing in offering the
sweetest of pleasures for sale
by the pound, has opened its
doors in Belle Glade.
Owner Anita Richardson
hopes that the business will
cater to many a sweet tooth
and, as a result bring more
than just a little joy to kids -
and adults alike.
Upon entering the business
located at 136 SE MLK Blvd.,
the customer is greeted by a
colorful design complement-
ing the catchy colors of the


candies themselves, walls
painted in bright hues to high-
light the goods.
Stacked against the walls
are shelves filled with candies
both familiar and seemingly
forgotten. Next to the Brach's
most everyone knows are
Neapolitan Coconuts, "Stuff
my mom used to eat," Ms.
Richardson said.
Pecane Pralines, and Pecan
Logs are among the handmade
items specially sent for by the
owner to provide to residents in
the Glades who otherwise will
not find the items at the check-
out aisle at the nearest grocery
store, nor will any time soon. It
is perhaps one of the things Ms.
Richardson is proudest of: The


" ." :r8' ".." '"* *:'*". f'; "7 r ;. ... .


fact that the items are top-tier
goods that she personally takes
the time to carefully select and
stock because she is confident
locals will enjoy them.
There are also gourmet jelly
jams and, of course, ice cream.
Eight flavors of ice cream, tried
and proven favorites, are avail-
able, waiting to be scooped up
by an anxious child staring in
the face of them.
The owner of the business
said the community has
received the new establish-
ment with open arms, with
many visitors coming back for
candy since she officially
opened the doors to the busi-

Pet of the Week winner!
You talking to me! I said, are you talking to me! Can't help
to recall Robert Deniro's character in Taxi Driver when
gazing into the knowing stare of "Boogers" or "Boo" as
this week's Pet of the Week winner. Boo may have an
edge in a staring contest, but his owners, Robert and
Sharon Wiley, of Clewiston, refer to Boo as the comedi-
an in the family and says, "He likes to make us laugh and
smile. But at the end of a long day, Boogers likes nothing
better than to cuddle in your lap or snuggle next to you
in bed and watch TV and fall asleep. He is a happy, play-
ful, little four-year-old dog." Boogers has won a day at
the pet spa, sponsored by Belle Glade Veterinarian Doc
Savvy at Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital. She can be con-
tacted at (561) 996-5500. If you have any interesting pho-
tos of your pet, submit them to myoung@newszap.com

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


For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 460.
Patient must pay cash, check or clhaWge at titw' i ofinum q anmmimam.

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Belle Glade/South Bay issues blog at http://newsblog.info/0901.
It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and

per as space permits.
WE DO NOT CHEAT: This is a student of Glades Day. I would like to
respond about the article on Glades Day Gators cheating. I just want to
know, if you are a fan of Glades Day, why would you say that Glades Day is
cheating? I know for a fact that Glades Day doesn't do those kinds of
things because we don't need to cheat to win. And I'm going to let you
right now that there are going to be so many people hating on Glades Day
because we win. Glades Day doesn't need to use foul plays. We do every-
thing by the book. We don't do what you're school does or what that
school does. We do what we have to do, we do what we need to do, we
go right by the book. I don't knowwho called, but they messed up by say-
ing that because if you're a fan, you aren't supposed to say that kind of
stuff. And whoever said it, they need to get their act straight and know the
facts on what they are talking about.

I AGREE WITH SASSER: Although I live in Belle Glade, I agree with
Pahokee Mayor Sasser that the last minute concerns about the water
plant site are ridiculous. If concerned citizens and Belle Glade and South
Bay City Commissioners had done their homework in a timely manner
none of these delay tactics would have come up. Let's get the water plant
built and built now at that site.

STILL NO WORD: About five months ago a lady worked for the Belle
Glade Campground Marina and stole a bunch of money. There's never
been an arrest made. The citizens of Belle Glade need to contact the FBI
and let them know that the reason there's not.been an arrest made is
because (individual'in the city) would not let the chief of police make an
arrest. That is wrong. Every citizen in Belle Glade needs to call. Let's get this
over with. Please print. We called over a week ago and the paper won't
print it for some reason. Maybe they will this time. Citizens please call.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. The reason why your call was not
published last week is because we are looking into the situation, hoping
to have some concrete answers for you. As of this week, we still do not
have an answer to your question, but pledge that we will continue our
own investigation, with our limited resources, until this matter is resolved.


Letters to the Editor


The time to act is now
Dear Mr. Tate,
It has come to my attention that
the officers at the police depart-
ment are having to work 16 (six-
teen) hour shifts. As a former com-
missioner that rode many times
with the police department, I know
how extremely dangerous this is
for these officers. As a citizen, I
have to say that it is inexcusable!
Someone is going to fall asleep at
the wheel or make a poor judg-
ment call due to sleep deprivation
that is going to seriously get some-
one hurt. As the city manager, I am
sure that you are aware of this situ-
ation and the liability that you are
putting the city in.
These men and women are
very hardworking people. They do
not deserve to be abused. Accord-
ing to some, they feel it is due to
participating in an online forum for
officers to vent and it is creating a
hostile work environment. I can
see their point. However, I am
more concerned with the lack of
regard for the safety of the officers
and those in the community. I


Support our troops

Glade will be sending packages
of much needed items to our
military men in Iraq. If you have
a friend or a loved one serving in
Iraq and would like us to send
them a package of supplies, give


implore you to address this situa-
tion and do so quickly before
someone gets hurt. If this is not in
retaliation for participating in the
online forum and is due to the lack
of officers working for our depart-
ment, then this needs to be
addressed immediately too. If we
can't get officers here, then an alter-
nate, such as requesting the assis-
tance of the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office needs to be
researched, and quickly! It is your
duty to ensure that the citizens of
Belle Glade are safe and that the
employees that work under you
have a safe working environment. I
do not see this as a safe situation for
anyone involved. I see it as a ticking
time bomb waiting to explode.
I appreciate your expedient
response to this situation. Addition-
ally, I would appreciate it if you
would respond to this letter to let
me knowthow you intend to
address this situation. Thank you in
advance for your attention to this
matter.

Learning a new language
A number of graduates of the English as a Second Lan-
guage class participated in a completion ceremony at the
Bill Bailey Community Center Sept. 30. The group, com-
prised of 30 participants of the first part of the class
received their certificates. Classes are held at the First
Haitian Baptist Church in Belle Glade and St. Mary's
Catholic Church in Pahokee. The project is funded by J.P.
Morgan Bank, Allegany Franciscan Foundation, State of
Florida Cultural Council, Dollar General and Glades Ini-
tiative. It is made possible through the Glades Communi-
ty Development Corporation in Belle Glade.


Mark La Roe, representing J.P. Morgan Bank, presents
Islande Alouption, one of the program participants, with
her certificate of completion. According to teacher Mary
Rogers-Bell, the students have increased their English-
speaking ability from beginning to intermediate high.
Students in the program are taught "enough English to
help them survive," Ms. Rogers-Bell said.

Clean up at Torry Island: A success

other volunteers participated in

ful, Inc. All together, they picked
up over 500 pounds of garbage
they found around the picnic
area, boat docks, roadside, pavil-
ion area and around the bridge.
Some interesting garbage finds
were: Fishing lures, a light bulb,
animal skull, and the front nose of
a fiberglass boat that had been on
the shore since last year's hurri-
canes.
All supplies garbage bags,
water, gloves, pick-up tools -
were supplied by Keep Palm
Beach County Beautiful, Inc. All
participants received a T-shirt,
pen and wrist band as a "thank
you" from KPBCB and its spon-
sors and supporters.
This annual cleanup is held on


the 3rd Saturday of September.

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I just got my
first dog for the first time in my life.
I have no idea about shots, and
care for him. Please, help! Tell me
Doc, Where do I start? Signed,
Clueless in Clewiston.
A: Well hello there Clueless!
Ok, well let's start at the begin-
ning. Sounds like you need to
establish yourself with a veterinar-
ian. A pup's first visit for a check
up and de-wormer should start at
about six weeks of age. If you pur-
chased a puppy, he should be at
least eight weeks old to be sold.
That's the law! Giving away pups
is a different situation. Vaccina-
tions, more de-wormers, further
check ups, starting on heartworm,
and flea prevention at eight
weeks. Then another repeat of the
previous at 12 weeks, and 16
weeks of age. The only thing dif-
ferent is that he will get a rabies
vaccination at 16 weeks of age. All
the other aspects of care like feed-
ing, puppy training, potty training,
and any other health questions
should be brought up with your
veterinarian at your visits. Make
sure one of those questions
include, "Where do I go if I have a
pet emergency?" It's very impor-
tant to know and trust your vet!
Remember, your veterinarian is
the other family doctor!
Take care, and hope you're not
so "Clueless" anymore! Doc
Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My pug dog
Harry has lots of anxiety. He freaks
out with thunderstorms, firecrack-
ers, and trick-o-treaters! He paces,
cries, and sometimes vomits. I'm


Doc Savvy
not looking forward to all those
doorbells on Oct. 31. Can I give
him 'something for his nerves?
Jenny, in Wellington.
A: Hey Jenny. Yes! There is
something you can give Harry,
and no it's not Prozac! As long as
his problem is situational anxiety
and not a chronic condition, then
Acepromazine may just do the
trick (No Pun!). Mostly, I prescribe
this medication for summer storm
anxiety. As long as Harry is in
good health, and has no history of
seizures, this should be an effec-
tive choice. Call your veterinarian
to see if they would feel that Harry
is a good candidate for Acepro-
mazine, and see what a difference
it can make. Happy Halloween
Jenny! Take care, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com, and check
out your answers weekly in The
Pet Corner. Be sure to tune into
The Savvy Vet Show Thursdays at
10:30 a.m., on 93.5 The Big Dawg.

Muzzle loading season


now open in WMAs


Conditions have improved in
Holey Land and Rotenberger
Wildlife Management Areas
(WMAs), and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) reopened these areas
as of 12 a.m. Sept. 28. These
areas are open for hunting during
muzzleloader season Oct 1-16.
The Everglades and Francis S.
Taylor WMA remains closed by
executive order from Kenneth
Haddad, FWC executive director.
The order contains special regu-
lations for this WMA, which are
necessary due to inordinately
high water levels associated with
recent storms that jeopardize
wildlife, particularly deer. The
special regulations prohibit:
Taking game other than fish
and alligators, the use of vehi-
cles, airboats or ATVs, and all
other public access, except by


FWC catches the crafty crocodile


MIAMI When a North Miami
Beach woman stepped outside of
her house to get her newspaper at
7:30 a.m. last Wednesday, she
found a nine-foot long, 200-pound
American crocodile in her carport
instead.
The animal, which has eluded
trappers for three years. and
prompted at least 50 calls from resi-
dents, was captured by Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) contracted nui-
sance wildlife trapper Todd Hard-



wick.
FWC biologists tagged,
weighed and measured the male
crocodile before releasing it
unharmed into the Southern
Glades Wildlife and Environmental
Area in south Miami-Dade County.
It is illegal to kill an American croc-
odile, which has been listed as an
endangered species since 1975.
But as their numbers have
increased from estimates of 300 to
1,000 in the southern tip of the
Florida Peninsula to the Keys, so


have complaint calls from resi-
dents.
Unlike alligators, crocodiles are
shy and reclusive. They can also
hold their breath for up to two
hours. Both qualities make them
difficult to catch, according to
wildlife biologist Tim Regan. This
particular crocodile has been quite
wily, staying away from trappers in
underground culverts.
To report a crocodile of con-
cern, call the Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at (866) FWC-GATOR.

Millions of insects plagued Florida's earliest settlers


By Katherine Walker Worth
As told to MaryAnn Morris
I was born in Naples Aug. 1,
1924 to Forrest Walker and Adnie
Prine Walker. I married Fred
Arnold Worth Feb. 8, 1941. I sup-
pose I'm related to almost every-
one around here one way or
another. My grandfather, James R.
Walker came down from Pine
Level in Manatee County after a
bad freeze in the 1890s to what
was then called Survey Creek, Lee
County, with his wife, Ella and her
half-brother, Jehu Whidden and
his family. They built their log
homes there on 40 acres of land
each they bought from the govern-
ment. It took them six years to pay
for it. Now it's called Bonita
Springs. That's a whole story of its
own, but my daddy, Forrest Walk-
er, was born there and after he
married Mama in Arcadia, they
went to Marco to live.
We didn't live there all the time.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


Mama told me about one time she
and daddy were living in Bean City,
down near Belle Glade. She was
only 14 years old when they were
married and this was soon after.
Papa and granddaddy went away
overnight and she was all alone.
Remember, she was only 14. She
got so scared, she forgot to keep
the smudge pots lit to keep the
mosquitoes away and in the
morning they found the horse
dead, killed by the mosquitoes.
She hated it there and they left


soon after.
My husband's family lived here
in Okeechobee for awhile. He
went to school here in 1926, 27
and 28.
The mosquitoes were bad
when I was young, too. I remem-
ber there were kinfolks who used
a bucket with sand in it and we'd
pick up some dry cow chips to
burn for smoke to keep the bugs
away. We had "insect powder" -
B Brand it was called. It was yel-
low. I don't know exactly what it
was, but we'd sprinkle some on
top of those burning cow chips or
put it in a tin lid on the floor. It
smoked and buddy, it worked! It
would kill everything!
Fred did road building with the
state road department. I would go
with him and we'd live in the state
road camps in a trailer near where
they were building. One time it
was down in Homestead. There
the sand gnats (no-see-ums) were
so bad I'd put diesel fuel on the


screens about every three days to
try and keep them out. They were
just awful and the mosquitoes as
bad!
Granddaddy told that when he
was a young man they hunted cat-
tle around Lake Okeechobee for
Lykes Brothers near where Okee-
chobee is now around Basinger
and Fort Drum. He said the horses
would be knee deep to belly deep
in water. They would take their
bread and their meat that had
been cooked in bear or pork
grease in until it was dried out, but
there were always oranges and
grapefruit growing in the tree ham-
mocks they could eat. He said that
the Indians would plant the seeds
left after they had eaten a piece of
fruit. So after they ate a piece of
fruit, they'd plant the seeds, too.
When me and my husband would
go deer hunting, we'd eat them,
too. Later people would take the
old sour orange root stock and
graft the good citrus on to it.

$200 million plan expected



to speed up restoration


By Pete Gawda


LAKE OKEECHOBEE -
About 250 people, including city
and county officials, community
leaders, dairymen, ranchers and
fishermen gathered at Jaycee
Park on Lake Okeechobee's
northern shore Monday morn-
ing to hear Governor Jeb Bush
and other state officials unveil a
comprehensive $200 million
plan to accelerate the restora-
tion and recovery of Lake Okee-
chobee.
The governor was expected
to fly into the Okeechobee air-
port. However, he arrived early
and fog forced him to land in
Stuart and travel by car to Jaycee
Park, arriving about 10:15 a.m.
The event had been scheduled
to start at 10 a.m.
Carole Ann Wehle, executive
director of South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
served as mistress of cere-
monies.
"Our goal is the protection of
Lake Okeechobee, the Caloosa-
hatchee River and the St. Lucie
Estuary," she said.
The first speaker she intro-
duced was State Senator Ken
Pruitt, a man Ms. Wehle said
possesses a "tremendous
amount of leadership." She
called Sen. Pruitt: "A very special
friend to water resources."
Sen. Pruitt said the lake had
reached the breaking point.
"Lake Okeechobee is being
reborn today," the senator said,
using the comparison of the mir-
acle of childbirth.
The senator drew applause
when he referred to plans for
lowering the lake and keeping it
low.
Ms. Wehle introduced the
governor as "no Johnny Come
Lately" to the environmental
arena. Noting that Gov. Bush is
known as the education gover-
nor, she referred to him as the "E
governor" with E standing for
environment and education.
She said there were two
facets to the recovery of Lake
Okeechobee Mother Nature
and our governor.
"Out of crisis does come
opportunity," said Governor
Bush.
The governor gave an
overview of the restoration pro-
gram noting that four years ago
the state committed to the plan
and that today the commitment
is "unwavering".
"Lake Okeechobee is the
heart of the Florida ecosystem,"
according to the governor.
He said the quality of life and
the quality of the economy
depend on a healthy lake..
"We're here to launch an
aggressive plan to restore the
lake," he said.
He said the majority of the
program would be completed in
five years. However, the gover-
nor said it i' !)ld probably be
done faster if permitting did not
take so long.
The governor drew applause
when he mentioned the need to
speed up the permitting process.


."This is not just a farming issue.
All of us have a role to play. This
. comprehensive, common-sense
plan will reduce pollution and bet-
ter manage the flow of water while
meeting our flood control and
water supply responsibilities."
Governor Jeb Bush


He said temporary pumps
would be used next year to sta-
bilize the lake.
The governor predicted that
revised lake regulations would
reduce the need to send water to
the estuaries.
He mentioned two local proj-
ects the Nubbin Slough and
the Taylor Creek storm-water
treatment areas as among the
projects designed to reduce
phosphorous loading to the
lake.
The governor said that by
2008 less fertilizer would be
used, reducing phosphorus
input into the lake.
"This is not just a farming
issue," the governor added. "All
of us have a role to play. This
comprehensive, common-sense
plan will reduce pollution and
better manage the flow of water
while meeting our flood control
and water supply responsibili-
ties."
The governor also predicted
the improvement of land-use
planning. He said by 2011 the
state would prohibit wastewater
residuals being used as fertilizer.
"Success is critical to the
future of our state," according to
Governor Bush.
He said we must find creative
solutions to create a "win-win
situation".
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson remarked that
Florida's population has dou-
bled since restoration efforts
began. While part of our ecology
problems are due to agriculture,
the commissioner blamed part
of it on the increase in popula-
tion.
He stated that 40 percent of
farms and ranches are using
BMPs and predicted that the fig-
ure would soon be 100 percent.
He said that citrus was ahead of
cattle in that area.
The commissioner talked of
development of new varieties of
grass for pastures and golf
courses that will use more nutri-
ents, thus allowing for less nutri-
ent runoff.
Representative Joe Negron
spoke of his grandparents instill-
ing in him a love of nature.
"We are stewards of the envi-
ronment," he said, and pledged
to get the funds to get the job
done.
He suggested paying to store
water on private land.
Referring to discharges into
the St. Lucie River from Lake
Okeechobee, the representative
said the federal government
should not be allowed to pollute
the water when private citizens


aren't.
When questioned after the
program, the Audubon Society's
Dr. Paul Gray advocated bringing
the lake down to 12 feet. He
advocated keeping the lake low
with continuous low-level
releases, which would not dis-
rupt the salinity of the estuaries.
He mentioned the STAs, reser-
voirs and injection wells for
water storage, but noted that
there is still a long, long way to
go on water storage. He was
glad to see the Kissimmee valley
included in the entire restoration
process.
In remarks to reporters after
the program, Col. Robert Car-
penter from the Jacksonville Dis-
trict of the U. S. Army Corps of
Engineers, stated that a new lake
level regulation schedule would
be in place by January 2007. He
referred to all the factors
involved in lake regulation as a
"Rubic's cube". The process of
gathering public input to be
used in formulating the new
schedule will soon begin. The
colonel said the current sched-
ule is not as balanced as it could
be.
"We know we can do better,"
he added.
However, he predicted that
not everybody would be happy
with the new regulation sched-
ule. Public safety will be a major
concern in arriving at the new
schedule, he said.
The colonel said until there
are sufficient water storage
areas, excessive rains could still
cause higher-level water releas-
es to the estuaries.
As part of the multi-faceted
plan, state agencies are raising
standards and expediting envi-
ronmental requirements to
reduce nutrient loading and bet-
ter address land use.
Carrying out this comprehen-
sive program will require the
combined efforts of SFWMD, the
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP) the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (FDACS) and the
Department of Community
Affairs (DCA).
Among the goals of the pro-
gram are establishment of Total
Maximum Daily Phosphorous
Loads for Lake Okeechobee trib-
utaries by 2007 and implement-
ing mandatory fertilizer BMPs by
2008.
By 2008, BMPs and storm-
water management systems are
expected to cause a net 25 to 50
percent reduction in the current
phosphorous load discharging
from a parcel of land.


How is it possible to save
so much?
The secret behind saving 35%
to 55% on your monthly
prescription costs is that many
medications are "flat-priced."
"Flat-priced" means that all
tablet sizes of a medication cost
about the same. Because these
medications are flat-priced, an
80 mg tablet costs the same as a
40 mg tablet. Split it in half and
one 80 mg tab is equal to two
40 mg tabs.

After you consult with your MD or
Healthcare provider, and show
them your DemiDoseTM pill splitter
they should prescribe your medica-
tion at twice your current tablet
size, but indicate you take only 1/2
tablet daily. Instead of paying
for 30-tablets per month, you now
pay for 15-tablets that are twice
the size of what you now take.
When you half-split those larger
tablets, you use 'flat-pricing' to your
advantage.


DemiDoseT accurately, easily and
safely splits leading brand prescrip-
tion medications used for:

> Cholesterol
> Heart Disease
> High Blood Pressure
> Thyroid
> Erectile Dysfunction
> Allergies
> Women's Health
> Mood
> Migraines

What medications can I split
with DemlDoseTM?
DemiDoseT half-splits different


dose sizes
medications:
> Accuprile
> Fosamaxe
> Levitra
> Levaquine
> Norvasc
> Premarine
> Synthrold
> Zocor
> Zyprexa


of the following

> Cialis
> Imitrex Oral@
> Lipitor
> Lexaproe
> Pravachole
> Prempro
> Vlagrae
> Zoloft
> Zyrtece


DemiDoseTM also comes with a
generic splitting bed for accurately
splitting other medications.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, October 13, 2005


Busted
Continued From Page 1
- two more juveniles, and a sus-
pect he identified as Will Perkins,
III spotted the victim, Eric Sori-
ano, 21, of Belle Glade washing
his vehicle at the Sudsy City Car-
wash on Northwest Avenue L
shortly after 10 p.m. that night.
Seay said it was Will who told the
others, "Let's lick him," meaning
that the four would rob the man.
Seay told police it was one of
the juveniles who, wearing a
white T-shirt around his head,
walked behind the victim and
held a gun to his head. Seay told
police the gun was actually a
black BB gun that the group had
been carrying.
Seay said he entered the vic-
tim's vehicle, a 1986 Chevy
Caprice Classic, and backed up to
where the juvenile held the victim
to the ground. The victim, with a
gun pointed at him, complied,
telling his attackers to "take every-
thing, just don't kill me."
The man was put into the
truck of his car, Seay said, and
driven down Marina Road. The


Summit
Continued From Page 1
Once again the focal point of
the summit revolved around the
key issues affecting the Glades.
Participants identified the short-
falls, the strengths and other
areas still lacking that the involve-
ment of the county and other
organizations in partnership, resi-
dents said, can help to remedy.
Housing was part of the dis-
cussion, with participants dis-
cussing the viability of the Glades
as an alternative to the high-
priced property found in Palm
Beach County. With a number of
projects in the Glades addressing
affordable housing, the Glades
can become a place where more
people can come to find afford-
able homes, speakers said.
"Our biggest problem in Palm
Beach County is housing," said
Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Tony Masilotti, a partici-
pant in the economic summit
who urged the county to pay
closer attention to the develop-
ment of the Glades in the future.
"The only place where a home is
attainable is the Lake Region."
Education was a topic, and
school district representatives
were involved in the discussion.
Infrastructure figured into the
talks, with the cities in the Glades
lacking the funds to rehabilitate
the aging roads and systems. In
South Bay, potholes cover some
streets, with bumps forming
from the shifting of the muck
beneath the roads, a situation
commonly found throughout the
Glades and affecting the cities of
Pahokee and Belle Glade as well.
Following the summit, leaders


suspect said one of the other sus-
pects said, "Let's kill him." Seay,
who was driving the car, said he
slowed the vehicle down, exited
and walked away from the scene
because he did not want anything
else to do with the situation. He
said he left for his girlfriend's
house in Belle Glade.
Another suspect caught by
police said he felt he did not do
anything wrong, that he inter-
vened after seeing the three oth-
ers assaulting the victim because
he did not want anybody getting
hurt. That suspect at one point
held the gun to the victim's head
and rode with the other suspects
before being let out of the vehicle
in the area of West Avenue A and
Northwest 9th Street. He told
police he thought the suspects
had released the victim at a near-
by packinghouse, though he was

issues identified last week. A
report detailing the subjects dis-
cussed at the Glades Summit,
along with being included in the
county summit, will be present-
ed to the Palm Beach County
Commission and the Governor's
Office for consideration.
South Bay Mayor Clarence
Anthony urged his neighboring
cities to attend the county sum-
mit to show solidarity. Perhaps
one of the most important issues
to come up at the meeting was
the push toward banding the
influence of tri-cities as one
region, demonstrating a
strengthened voice, the mayor


Based on the evidence collect-
ed, and the information provided
by the suspects, the police depart-
ment searched for and arrested
three of the suspects on the
charges of kidnapping, car jack-
ing and robbery. The department
continues to search for the fourth
suspect.
Meanwhile, the chief of police
said he is happy at how well his
officers handled the case and
apprehended the suspects
involved.
"I'm very pleased the officers
took this very serious case and
showed the public they are con-
cerned with their public safety.
The officers should and will be
commended." To the residents,
the chief said, "This police depart-
ment is there for them, to give
them a sense of safety, to give
them the feeling they can walk
the streets at night."
He gives a warning to others
contemplating breaking the law.
"The city of Belle Glade will not
tolerate your behavior. We're
going to hunt you down and put
you away if that's where you need
to be," he said. "It may take time,
but we have patience."


said. There is still more to do,
Mayor Anthony said. "When it
comes to improving the lives of
our children and families, we all
say we're from the Glades. As we
look at today and where we go
from here, it's not enough to
have spoken." He hoped last
week's meeting would not be the
last time the Glades meets to
chart out a course of action for
the good of the area.
The summit was presented by
Fidelity Federal Bank and Trust,
with participating sponsors
including the Belle Glade and
Pahokee Chambers of Com-

Growers Cooperative of Florida,
as well as a number of other
organizations and agencies.

Since then, the positive com-
ments by the community have
kept the people working there in
good spirits, hopeful that the
business will continue to grow as
locals become more familiar
with it. Already, Ms. Richardson
has heard good things. "They
say, 'Now, I don't have to go to
Wellington anymore,'" Ms.
Richardson said one of her cus-
tomers told her.
The former teacher, Ms.
Richardson said she wanted a
business that would, like her old
job, keep her close to children.
After months of planning, she
opened the business with the
inspiration of creating a "happy
place". She believes she's met
her goal.
To promote the company, Ms.
Richardson is busy planning two
events for later this year, includ-
ing offering candies to children at
Halloween as a safe alternative to
trick-or-treating and organizing a
Christmas Jazz concert. She said
that word-of-mouth is spreading
quickly and more and more cus-
tomers visit the shop each week.

USDA
Continued From Page 1
When the grant funding was
presented earlier this year at a tri-
cities meeting, officials with the
city of Belle Glade said the city
did not qualify for the funding as
its population prevented it from
receiving a rural designation that
would be required in order for
the USDA to make its funding
available.
After visiting representatives
in Washington, the city is hope-
ful that it will qualify for the
monies.
Staff in Belle Glade
researched the issue and found
that another cityin Florida, Plan-
tation, with a larger population
than Belle Glade, had been offi-
cially designated as rural just
the precedent Belle Glade need-
ed to approach legislators.
In September, Belle Glade
City Manager Houston Tate
wrote to Representative Alcee
Hastings on the issue. "I feel that
my community is unfairly
impacted by the population
threshold applied by the USDA in
awarding USDA grants and low
interest project loans that could
be applied for the new Lake
Region Water Treatment Plant,"
Mr. Tate said in the letter. "I am
seeking the assistance of both
state and federal legislators to
assist in changing our designa-
tion to rural so that Belle Glade
meets the requirements for this
program."
The manager met with Mark
Foley's office, as well as with the
director of the USDA recently, the
result being a proposed appro-
priation bill in 2006 that may
change the city's designation in
Washington. All indications at
the moment, according to Mr.
Tate, point to likely possibility
that the designation will be
approved.
What that means for the city
is that it will now be eligible for
the low interest loan provided
through the USDA. Under that
program, the city receives 75
percent in grant funding, with
the rest of the funding being pro-
vided through a loan. The loan
would help the city meet its goal
of reducing as much of its debt
relating to the plant as possible.
If all goes well, the city would
have two years until the comple-
tion of the plant to secure fund-
ing for the remaining debt. City
leaders and officials have made
public their intent to see the proj-
ect completely funded before the
plant opens.
If the city is able to obtain the
rural designation and the grant
funding is provided, Mr. Tate
said, it will be "a historical
accomplishment. We're certain-
ly happy to find ways of remov-
ing the burden," he said.

Tigers top Verot 33-14, but lose their key starter


FORT MYERS The Clewis-
ton Tigers traveled to Bishop
Verot on Friday night and
unleashed a potent running
attack, led by junior tailback
Jamal Hubert, to defeat the
Vikings, 33-14. On the night,
Hubert had 190 yards on 16 tries,
including touchdown runs of 52
and eight yards.
The victory was not, however,
an entirely joyous occasion. Tiger
quarterback Jared Combass suf-
fered a cracked collarbone early
in the third period and will likely
miss the rest of the regular sea-
son. Combass was running a
sweep when he was tackled from
behind by a Viking defender and
hit the ground on his left shoulder.
The Tigers struck early taking
the opening kickoff and marching
72 yards on nine snaps to score
with 8:33 left in the first quarter.
Backup tailback Richard Pope got
the last yard off tackle. He had a
previous carry for 13 yards and
Hubert also chipped in with runs
of 20 and eight yards. Combass
tacked on the point after.
Bishop Verot's early offensive
fortunes were not that great. After
a first down, the Tiger defense
held on and forced a punt. Return
specialist Richard Pope grabbed
the ball at the Tiger 30 and went
,left for about 35 yards and then
,veered back across the field dodg-
:ing and eluding defenders until he
'found the end zone for the 70-
,yard touchdown. The Tiger punt
'receiving team laid down several
,perfect blocks to make the score
:possible. The point after was low
,and blocked.
As the quarter was winding
',down, Verot drove to the Tiger
'one-yard line but were foiled
;when Tiger safety Nate Brinkley
,intercepted a pass in the end zone.

squad is coached by Lyn Johnston.


The Tigers began another
drive that stretched into the sec-
ond period but turned the ball
back to the Vikings at the 37 when
fullback Carl Whitehead fumbled
the ball away. This time, the
Vikings sustained a drive and
found pay dirt on a five-yard run
by halfback Joey Harrity, followed
by kicker Butch Moore's conver-
sion. On the following series, the
Tiger offense shot itself in the foot
with two penalties and three
incomplete passes and had to
punt from their 10, giving the
Vikings excellent field position at
the 43.
Bishop Verot drove to the Tiger


18 but the Tigers held and
Moore's 33-yard field goal attempt
sailed left of the uprights. From
their 20, the Tigers immediately
got moving when Hubert trotted
through and around defenders for
25 yards. A few plays later, Com-
bass hooked up with a streaking
John Melton on a sideline pattern
and he raced past two Viking
defenders for a 40-yard scoring
play. The Tigers went for two and
were successful when Combass
flipped a pass to tight end Delvin
Hughes. The teams went to inter-
mission with the Tigers sporting a
21-7 lead.
Combass suffered his injury on


the fifth play of the Tigers first,
third quarter drive and was
replaced by Meltor. Staying on
the ground, the Tigers scored on
the sixth play with Hubert getting
the final eight yards. A run
attempt for the conversion came
up inches short. The Vikings
returned the kickoff to their 44
and wasted no time in scoring
when Miller hit wide out Danny
Cull on a short pass with Cull
breaking loose and going a total
of 56 yards for the touchdown.,
Miller converted the extra point to
make it 27-14, Tigers. Clewiston
added their last score in the final
quarter when Hubert broke loose


down the sideline and raced 52
yards. The two-point pass attempt
for the conversion failed.
Tiger coach Tommy Morrell
came away disappointed with his
players' intensity. "I didn't think we
played all that bad," Morrell said. "I
was happy for the victory. We won
the game fairly convincingly, but
there was no intensity. We didn't
seem like we got after it."
The Tiger offensive line put on
a good display of blocking, open-
ing holes for their running corps.
However on both sides of the ball,
the Tigers were plagued with 11
penalties for 85 yards while Bish-
op Verot was only flagged once
for five yards.
The loss of Combass will make
the Tiger's remaining schedule


more difficult. The Tigers travel to
Boca Raton this week to take on a
solid Pope John Paul team in an
important district match. While
.Melton can handle the quarter-
backing chores, his valuable skills
as a wide receiver and defensive
safety will be lost. The Tiger staff
will also have their hands full this
week in preparing another back
up quarterback in the event of
injury to Melton.
Defensively, the Tigers were
led by defensive end Delvin Hugh-
es with five tackles, one assist, a
quarterback sack for a nine-yard
loss, and linebacker D.J. Bartlett
who also had five tackles and an
assist. Safety Jasper Hunter had
an interception and return for 29
yards.


Blue Devils get swagger back with dominating win


;By Nina G. Wills

PAHOKEE The Pahokee Blue
'Devils made a statement with their
,dominating victory over the Royal
-Palm Beach Wildcats last Friday
'night: The Blue Devils want to play
in their third consecutive champi-
,onship game, and they want to win
'it.
' This game was highly anticipat-
:ed by the Blue Devils team, espe-
Icially senior wide receiver and free
safety Tamarcus Porter. Porter
transferred from Royal Palm Beach
High School during the off-season
to join forces with the Blue Devils.
He has been a key player in every
game and showed his talent on the
field against former team.
Pahokee's defense once again
set the tempo of the game holding
the Wildcats to a three-and-out on
the Wildcats' first possession. On
the Wildcats' second possession,
Porter recovered a fumble in the
Wildcats' territory.
Running back Ricky Gary made
the Wildcats pay for the miscues
with an 11-yard touchdown run
with 20 seconds remaining in the
first quarter. Gary ran straight up
the middle untouched by Wild-
cat defenders. The point after
attempt was good by Jose
Rodriguez to put the Blue Devils up
early.
On Pahokee's third possession
of the game, senior quarterback
Robert "Rah Rah" Love led the
team down the field, connecting
with Martavious Odoms, the first of
five catches for Odoms on the
night. The Blue Devils were on the
38-yard line of the Wildcats and
were driving for the end zone
before the game, and Pahokee's
momentum was temporarily sus-
pended for severe weather.
The Devils' offense seemed to
lose their rhythm coming out of the
20-minute break and was unable to
convert on fourth down, giving the
ball back to the Wildcats. The Dev-
ils' defense answered the challenge
and held the Wildcats to only one
first down in the first half giving
Pahokee a 7-0 lead at the break.
It looked as if this game would


be very close, but in the second half
the Blue Devils exploded with big
plays. With less than 10 minutes to
go in the third quarter, the Wildcats
mishandled a punt giving the Blue
Devils a first down from the Wild-
cats' 25-yard line. On a third and 5,
Love threw a 17-yard touchdown
pass to Odoms who was wide
open in the middle of the field.
There was not a single Wildcat
defender within five yards of
Odoms and the Blue Devils extend-
ed their advantage over the Wild-
cats to a 13-0 lead. On Pahokee's
next possession, they started at
their own 35-yard line, but didn't
stay for long as Love opened the
series with a first down run. On the
next two plays, Love threw to
Odoms and Tanoris Jones.
Jones' catch brought'the ball all
the way down to the Wildcats' 17-
yard line. With 9:58 to go in the
fourth quarter, on a quarterback
sneak, Love found his way into the
end zone for the third Blue Devils
touchdown.
Love threw hit Porter for the
successful two-point conversion to
put the Blue Devils up by a score of
21-0, with time running out on the
Wildcats, who went nowhere on
their next possession.
The Blue Devils wasted no time
in scoring again when Love threw a
perfect spiral to Odoms who out
ran the defender and scored the
fourth touchdown of the night for
the Blue Devils.
Pass protection was the key for
the touchdown strike as the Blue
Devil offensive line allowed Love to
sit tight in the pocket while the play
fully developed downfield. Love
threw a perfect strike to his open
receiver for the score and Pahokee
jumped out to a 27-0 lead.
In the waning minutes of the
fourth quarter, Micanor Regis and
Rudy Robinson sacked the Wild-
cats' quarterback, as Pahokee's
defense continued their shutout bid.
Pahokee's offense got the ball one
more time and took advantage of
the opportunity. Love threw a 43-
yard pass to Nikita White who sim-
ply beat the Wildcat defender. The
Wildcats were just unable to keep

up with the speed of the Blue Devils
receivers. Love then threw a nine-
yard pass to Tamarcus Porter who
out jumped the defender for the
fifth Blue Devils touchdown.
The Devils lined up for the PAT,
but it was a fake. Love ran to his
right and zipped the ball to Porter
for the two-point conversion. The
Blue Devils won 35-0 and it was a
solid night for Pahokee on both
sides of the ball. Nikita White,
Janoris Jenkins, and Casey Hopson
knocked the ball away from
receivers numerous times. Rudy
Robinson put constant pressure on


the Wildcats' quarterback and Vin-
cent Cheves had one sack and
made key tackles for losses.
"This was a pivotal win for our
team," said Pahokee head coach
Foster: "The team limited their mis-
takes and executed very well."
The passing game opened up
again this week for the Devils. The
protection up front by the offensive
linemen was outstanding. They
gave Love plenty of time to get the
ball into the hands of the talented
Blue Devils receivers. Odoms said
his plan going into the game was
simply "catch the ball and score".


Tamarcus Porter was excited to
get into the end zone at least once
against his former team. He said,
"It feels wonderful. I just can't
explain it." He credits Defensive
Coordinator Rick Lammons for the
dominating play of the defense
every week.
"Coach Lammons motivates us
to be fired up. He doesn't let us
slip," said Porter. As Porter looked
around at his team celebrating on
the field, he smiled and said,
"Tonight we got our swagger
back."
The Blue Devils will be at home


this week playing John Carroll. The
game will start at 7:30 p.m.
Team Statistics:
Robert Love was 11 of 20 for
223 yards and had three for three
touchdowns, rushed for one, and
threw one interception.
Martavious Odoms had five
receptions for 107 yards and a pair
of touchdowns.
Tamarcus Porter had four
receptions for 48 yards, with one
touchdown and a pair of two-point
conversions.
Tanoris Jones had two recep-
tions for 31 yards.

Gators win their fourth straight


By Mark Young
The Glades Day Gators contin-
ued their winning ways with a 19-7
victory over American Heritage
tDelray) Oct. 7.
The victory was Glades Day's
fourth straight win since their 17-10
road loss to Benjamin in their sea-
son opener that featured several
severe weather delays. Since that
time, the Gators defeated Clewis-
ton 19-14, overcame a late deficit to
beat Florida Christian 12-10,
pounded district rival Evangelical
:32-12, and improved their season
record to 4-1 with the victory over
American Heritage.
The Gators have been relying
heavily on their run attack since
their starting quarterback went
down in the season opener. Every-
one knows the Gators have to run


the ball, but nobody has been able
to stop them. The Stallions knew
the Gators wanted to run the ball
and stacked the box in hopes of
stopping their potent running
game.
The result of that effort left the
door wide open for a halfback
option. Quarterback Brandon
Smith tucked the ball away to his
running back Frank Lugo on a fake
sweep and the Stallion defenders
bit on the run, leaving Andrew
Joseph open for a 50-yard touch-
down strike.
Lugo had a big game for the
Gators, throwing the only complet-
ed pass of the day for a touchdown
and running for 205 yards on 35
carries, including a 52-yard scoring
run in the third quarter. Lugo
would end the day with another
touchdown, the first of two coming
in the second quarter from nine


yards out.
Lugo would play a part on all
three of Glades Day's scores and
the Gator defense continues to
dominate the field, as well. The
Gator defense would give up a
fourth quarter score but only
allowed 72 yards of rushing for the
game and 74 yards of passing
yardage.
The Gators were plus four on
turnovers for the game with the
Gator defense recovering a pair of
fumbles and picking off two Ameri-
can Heritage passes. The Stallion
quarterback went to the air 15
times against the Gator secondary
and was successful four times.
Also running the ball for the
Gators were Joseph who gained 35
yards on six carries, and Smith who
rushed for 14 yards on six carries.
Joseph had the only reception of
the day, which was the 50-yard


scoring strike from Lugo.
The Gators will face off against
the unbeaten St. John Neumann
squad in a key district showdown
at Gator field Oct. 14 at 7:30 p.m. St.
John Neumann is currently 5-0, but
haven't met up with an overly
strong opponent this year. St. John
Neumann narrowly squeaked by
Moore Haven Sept. 30 by a score of
15-12.
Meanwhile the Gators have
been on a roll, winning four
straight and geared up to move
into the top spot of the district with
a victory over St. John Neumann
on Friday night.
The Gatos have a tough game at
home the following week against
King's Academy before wrapping
up district play on the road against
Moore Haven Oct. 28. They wrap
up the regular season at home Nov.
4 against Northwest Christian.


Terriers corraled

Submitted to INI
Winners Juan Sandoval and Isabella Allen were participants
at the Clewiston Elks' Soccer Shoot on Oct. 8.


Soccer shoot


results are tallied


CLEWISTON The Elks South-
east District Soccer Shoot took
place at Sugarland Park in Clewis-
ton on Saturday, Oct. 8.
The Under 8 winners were
Isabella Allen and Rey Paniagua.
Isabelle, a student at Westside Ele-
mentary, scored six points. Rey, who
is notyet in school, kicked for 13.
The Under 10 winners were
Vianca Gallegos and Juan San-
doval, WES students. Vianca
scored 10 points, while Juan kicked
for 24 points.
The Under 12 and Under 14
contestants kicked from 36 feet
away from the goal. Cassandra
Paniagua, a sixth grader at Clewis-
ton Middle School, scored 24
points to win the gold.
Casey Crawford, a student at


WES, scored 25 points to edge out
Victor Paniagua of Pahokee and
win the Under 12 Boys division.
Victor scored 22 points.
Martin Crawford scored 34
points, including six four point
goals to win the boys under 14 title
over Jose Paniagua of Pahokee,
who had 25 points, including a five
point goal.
Brittany Bacallao won the under
14 girls title with 41 points. The
CMS seventh grader had seven four
point kicks and one five pointer to
earn the highest total of the day.
The South Regional Soccer
Shoot will be on Saturday, Oct. 22
in Clewiston. Winners there will
advance to the Elks State Soccer
Shoot in Umatilla on Saturday,
Nov. 19.


LABELLE The Moore Haven
Terriers traveled once again, but
this time not quite so far to nearby
LaBelle for a non-district show-
down, which was predicted to be
an offensive shootout between
two rival teams.
However, such was not to be
the case, as the Terriers fell way
short to the Cowboys in a 49-6
loss that eliminated the Terriers'
chances to achieve a winning
season.
The first quarter began with a
glimmer of hope for Moore
Haven (1-5, 0-1) with a blistering
76-yard run by junior quarterback
Rod Huggins, who kept the ball
on an option that netted the
game's first touchdown, putting
the Terriers up 6-0 after the
missed PAT.


The Cowboys (4-2, 0-1) quick-
ly discontinued any expectations
of additional scoring by the Terri-
ers. LaBelle running back Matt
Davidson led a Cowboy offense
that devastated the Terriers defen-
sive front and dominated the
game in terms of time of posses-
sion. Davidson ran for two touch-
downs and threw for one more
on a halfback option pass to Chad
Lutkenhaus for a 77-yard score.
The Cowboys capitalized on
Terrier mistakes, including penal-
ties and turnovers, most notably a
fumble by the Terriers that led to
the touchdown pass by Davidson.
The Terriers will come home
Oct. 14 for a district showdown
with Evangelical Christian (5-2, 0-
1), who were victorious against
Hollywood Christian 44-0 on Oct. 7.

Raiders defeat



Dillard


The Glades Central Raiders
continue their winning streak
in decisive style, defeating Fort
Lauderdale-Dillard last week
33-8. The Raiders kept Dillard
back throughout the game, all
the while playing an aggressive
offense to secure the win.
Quarterback Bryan Mann
set the pace early, scoring a
touchdown off a one-yard run
in the first quarter. Mann was 9-
of-15 for 133 yards before
handing off the ball to sopho-
more quarterback Deandre
Holley.
Having played as running
back before taking over as
quarterback, Holley connected
with Curtis Brown for a touch-


down later in the game. Holley
as a running back in the first
half of the game also had a
touchdown run.
Dillard was unable to stand
up to the Raiders, and shot
back only in the third quarter
when its quarterback, Bobby
McGee hit a teammate up for a
15-yard touchdown.
The win marks the Raiders'
fifth straight victory, a feat the
team hopes to continue head-
ing into the playoffs and later
this year in its match-up against
local rival Pahokee.
The Raiders prepare for
their next game against Cardi-
nal Gibbons. The team will
play at home tomorrow night.

Sugar prices stable despite storms


CLEWISTON Though the
deadly storm seasons of the past
two years have caused significant
losses among Florida and
Louisiana sugar producers, they
have had virtually no effect on con-
sumer sugar prices a fact directly
attributable to U.S. sugar policy,
said Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent of the Clewiston-based U.S.
Sugar.
"These natural catastrophes,
combined with increasing U.S.
sugar consumption, could have led
to a real crisis," said Coker. "Yet
sugar supplies and prices have
remained stable, because U.S.
sugar policy is flexible and effective.
If our nation's oil policy worked as
well as sugar policy does, we


wouldn't see those price spikes at
the gas pump."
Last year, Florida suffered an
unprecedented four hurricanes,
costing the state's sugar growers -
who produce one quarter of the
nation's sugar supply 30 percent
of their crops and some $300 mil-
lion in lost revenues. This year,'
southern Louisiana's sugar cane
crop was devastated. First hurt by
Katrina, growers were hit even
harder by Rita, which brought salt
water 15 miles inland and flooded
crops under six feet of water. The
storms could cost Louisiana sugar
producers as much as three-quar-
ters of their crop, a loss that could
be felt for years.
Immediately following Katrina,


the U.S. Department of Agriculture
allowed the release of an industry-
funded surplus sugar reserve of
500,000 tons, then increased
imports by about 200,000 tons. As a
result, sugar prices to individual
consumers and food companies -
already nearly a third lower than
those of other developed countries
-will remain stable.
The U.S. the world's largest
consumer of sugar and natural
sweeteners -produces more than
80 percent of these supplies in a
domestic free market that operates
at no cost to taxpayers. If U.S. farm-
ers produce more sugar than they
are allowed to sell based on annual
government estimates, they store
the surplus for the government at


their own expense.
In times of unforeseen short-
ages caused by events such as hur-
ricanes, domestic surpluses and
additional imports address any
shortfalls.
"U.S. sugar policy helps level the
playing field for efficient domestic
producers," Coker said. "Without
this policy, cheap foreign sugar
imports could drive domestic pro-
ducers out of business, making the
U.S. completely dependent on
imported sugar. And if our experi-
ence with imported oil has taught
us anything, it's the importance of
retaining as much independence
as possible over products that are
essential to our economy and our
people."


Farm Bureau supports the honey industry


GAINESVILLE Florida ranks
number three in the nation in pro-
duction of honey, right behind Cali-
fornia and North Dakota. But Flori-
da beekeepers are struggling for
survival, beleaguered by pests, hur-
ricanes and low honey prices. They
are seeking ways to guarantee the
continued viability of their industry.
Solutions to their problems
may at least in part lie with
new marketing techniques,
including vertical integration, new
quality standards and developing
a distinctive "brand" to differenti-


ate Florida honey from run-of-the-
mill products.
"We are encouraging producers
and packers to develop a sound
marketing approach to improve
profitability," said Carolee Howe, a
Florida Farm Bureau assistant direc-
tor of agricultural policy assigned to
work with the apiary segment of the
agricultural industry.
Florida Farm Bureau, the state's
largest general agricultural organi-
zation, brought beekeepers and
packers together with marketing
experts from the Florida Depart-


ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services. The result may be a new
marketing cooperative.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson has
expressed concern about setbacks
suffered by the state's honey indus-
try, including destruction of honey-
bee colonies caused by mites and
hurricanes and declining prices
due to cheap, imported honey. He
has assigned the department's Divi-
sion of Marketing and Develop-
ment to help develop strategies to
ensure the future viability of the


honey industry.
"Many other segments of the
agricultural industry have a stake
in making sure beekeepers con-
tinue to operate in the state,"
Howe said. "Bees are necessary
for pollination of citrus, melons
and many other crops."
Farm Bureau has hosted several
strategy sessions, the latest with
representatives of the FDACS Mar-
keting Division. At that meeting sev-
eral producers and packers last
week agreed to explore the cre-
ation of a cooperative.


Harris welcomes more funding for citrus canker


Says $53.75 Million
Agriculture Award
will benefit Florida
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Rep. Katherine Harris (R-Fla.) wel-
comed the announcement of an
additional $53.75 million in emer-
gency funding dedicated to eradi-
cate citrus canker in Florida. The
announcement was made Friday,
Sept. 30 by U.S. Department of Agri-
culture Secretary Mike Johanns.


"The decision by the Agriculture
Department to provide additional
emergency funding for citrus
canker reflects the important role
of the citrus industry to Florida's
economy. While this funding is crit-
ical to ensure the continued health
of our $9.1 billion citrus industry, it
is also vital to the financial security
of the 90,000 Floridians whose
work is related to citrus produc-
tion," said Harris.
Aggressive efforts to accelerate
eradication activities remain a pri-
ority for Florida's citrus industry,


which represents 77 percent of U.S.
citrus production, and for individ-
ual residents whose own backyard
trees have not yet been affected by
citrus canker. The active hurricane
season has placed the industry at
greater risk to infestation by the
wind-borne disease. Hurricanes in
2004 were responsible for the
spread of canker and resulted in
$500 million in damage to the
industry.
"Our vigilance in fighting this
highly contagious bacterial disease
must not wane. I will continue to


work with the administration to see
that necessary steps are taken to
sustain the vibrancy of the citrus
industry," added Harris.
From the first case of citrus
canker in 1995, the Agriculture
Department has worked together
in support of eradication efforts,
providing more than $378.6 million
in funding to Florida's Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices (FDACS). In addition, Presi-
dent Bush's fiscal year 2006 budget
calls for $42.6 million in citrus
canker funding.


Congressman praises canker relief for citrus growers


Foley: "The Calvary
has started to arrive"
WASHINGTON, DC Con-
gressman Mark Foley (FL-16)
issued the following statement in


response to the United States
Department of Agriculture's deci-
sion to target $200 million for Flori-
da's commercial citrus growers for
losses suffered as a result of citrus
canker:
"The cavalry has started to


arrive. Growers throughout Florida
are in desperate need of relief and I
want to thank Secretary Johanns for
recognizing the dangerous situation
Florida's citrus industry finds itself
in. After years of battling canker, we
experienced the perfect conditions


for canker to strengthen and spread
across our state after the hurricanes
of last year. Our canker eradication
program will ultimately fail without
compensating the growers who
participate and that is exactly what
this money does."

USDA issues final 2004 peanut/cotton pay out funds


GAINESVILLE Peanut and
upland cotton farmers will soon
be receiving 2004 crop counter-
cyclical payments of $81 per short
ton for peanuts and 13.73-cents-
per-pound for upland cotton,
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA).
Required by the 2002 Farm Bill,
final counter-cyclical program
(CCP) payments for peanuts and
upland cotton are made after the
end of the marketing year. The
2002 Farm Bill provides for two par-
tial 2004 crop CCP payments, one
in October 2004 and one in Febru-
ary 2005. The final weighted aver-
age marketing year price for 2004


crop peanuts, which was
announced on Aug. 31, 2005, is
$378 per short ton, $23 higher than
the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland
cotton is at its maximum level due
to low market prices that have aver-
aged well below the 52-cents-per-
pound loan rate during the market-
ing year. Because of these low
prices, USDA is able to determine
the final counter-cyclical rate at this
time.
Producers who accepted the first
and second partial CCP payments
for 2004 crop peanuts received
$41.30 per ton and are due an addi-
tional $39.70 per ton. Producers
who accepted the first and second


partial CCP payments for 2004 crop
upland cotton received 9.61-cents-
per-pound and are due an addition-
al 4.12-cents-per-pound.
The counter-cyclical payment
rate is the amount by which the
"target price" of each commodity
exceeds its effective price. The
effective price equals the direct pay-
ment rate plus the higher of: (1) the
national average market price
received by producers during the
marketing year, or (2) the national
average loan rate for the commodi-
ty. The counter-cyclical payment
equals the counter-cyclical pay-
ment rate multiplied by 85 percent
of the farm's base acreage multi-
plied by the farm's counter-cyclical

Fewer biting midges are


expected for this fall


VERO BEACH Tiny, blood-
sucking flies that plague Florida's
coastline should be less common
this fall, thanks to summer rains
that flooded areas where the
pests breed, says a University of
Florida expert.
Biting midges, also known as
no-see-ums, are a constant pres-
ence during warm weather, but
appear in greater numbers during
October and November, and
again in April and May, said
Jonathan Day, an entomologist
with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences. The fall
population boom follows peak
high tides that flood salt marshes
and hatch dormant eggs stock-
piled throughout the summer
months.
This year, summer rainfall left
standing water in many low-lying
coastal areas, making potential
egg-laying sites inaccessible, he
said. Biting midges lay eggs in
muddy soil but cannot deposit
them on top of standing water.
"Their loss is our gain, so to
speak," Day said. "Biting midges
aren't going to disappear alto-
gether this fall, but if you're on the
coast you'll probably get fewer
bites compared with years when
we had a dry summer."
Two coastal biting midge
species are affected by the situa-
tion Culicoides furens, which is
found along the coast throughout
the state, and Culicoides barbo-
sai, found in coastal marshes pri-
marily in South Florida, said Day,
who studies biting insects at UF's
Florida Medical Entomology Lab-
oratory in Vero Beach.
Populations of inland biting
midge species will probably be


reduced as well, he said. Though
less prominent than their coastal
cousins, inland biting midges are
found near lakes, swamps, low-
land marshes and livestock pas-
tures.
Florida is home to about 50
species of biting midges, but
only a handful are significant
human pests, said Roxanne Rut-
ledge, another entomologist at
the UF laboratory. Rutledge
recently wrote a profile on the
biting midges of Florida, which
can be found online at
http://creatures.ifas.ufl.edu/aqu
atic/biting_midges.htm.
Adult females feed on bloodto
obtain nutrients they need to pro-
duce eggs, and their bites cause a
sharp, burning pain, she said.
Because the midges measure less
than one-eighth of an inch long,
they are seldom seen by their
human hosts.
"The bites can be very annoy-
ing, but in the United States there
are no human diseases caused by
the biting midges," Rutledge said.
"Some people do have a mild
allergic reaction and experience
welts and itching for a couple of
days."
Despite the temporary popula-
tion decline this fall, people going
outdoors in biting midge habitat
should take basic precautions
against the pests, she said.
"Wear long-sleeved shirts and
long pants if possible, and use a
repellent containing DEET on
your exposed skin," Rutledge
said. "Try to avoid outdoor activity
at dawn and dusk, especially if the
air is still."
Biting midges are weak fliers,
so homeowners can blow the


pests away from patios and decks
with large electric fans, she said.
Screened-in pools and porches
may need to be protected with
fans as well, because biting
midges can pass through most
wire mesh.
Unfortunately, little can be
done to control the pests on a
large scale, Rutledge said. No
community in Florida, or any
other state, has a biting-midge
control program.
"The biggest problem is,
there's no option for destroying
the larvae in a way that's econom-
ical, efficient and environmentally
sound," she said.
Because biting midges lay their
eggs in muddy soil, vast areas can
be used for breeding, Rutledge
said. Locating eggs or larvae
requires close examination of soil
samples, which takes time. Even
if larvae are located, there are no
safe, approved insecticides that
can penetrate the mud to reach
them.
"For now, the biting midges
have the upper hand, and we just
have to rely on low-tech solu-
tions," she said.
The lack of large-scale control
options can be frustrating to the
public, and to public-health offi-
cials, said Jonas Stewart, director of
the Volusia County mosquito con-
trol program in Daytona Beach.
"We get calls from citizens
asking for help with biting
midges, and the only thing we can
do is spray for the adults, which
only works temporarily," Stewart
said. "People sometimes assume
that controlling biting midges is as
easy as controlling mosquitoes
and, unfortunately, it's not."


The weed with two leaves


Twice last week some office
visitors brought in samples from
an unknown plant for our Master
Gardeners to identify. Besides
having distinctive yellow berries,
it had a curious arrangement of
having two unequal sized leaves
that grew from each bud.
According to UF Extension
Weed Specialist Dr. Ken Lange-
land, Twin-leaved Solanum is
one of the new "featured fiends"
that will be included in his new
second book of Florida's inva-
sive plants.
This plant is cropping up in
more and more in Florida Yards
all over the southern part of the
peninsula, and is worth remov-
ing from your landscape as soon
as it is noticed. If it is allowed to
drop its berries, expect to be
picking the seedlings from
around your landscape shrubs
and trees for years to come.
While it is not as invasive as
the infamous Brazilian Pepper
tree, it has the potential to invade
natural areas as well as become
a persistent landscape weed.
The UF/IFAS Task Force on Inva-
sive species cautions its use as
an ornamental because of its
ability to spread, and the Florida
Exotic Plant Pest Council has
added it to its Group II list -
those plants that have the ability
to spread into natural areas if
conditions are favorable.
Twin-leaved Solanum or Two-
leaved Solanum (Solanum
diphyllum) is a native of Mexico
and Central America. Another
name sometimes given to this
plant is Amatillo, which is the
name of places in El Salvador,
Guatemala and Honduras.
(There is also a town of Amatillo
in Texas, where this weed has
also escaped cultivation.)
Leaves of this plant are gener-


ally a deep green color and
smooth, and can measure one
to three inches long. The pairs of
leaves grow with one big and
one small leaf. The plant itself
forms an upright woody stem
that can grow up to six feet in
height, but they more typically
top out at three to four feet.
During warmer months it will
produce clusters of small white
five-petaled flowers that give rise
to the round yellow berries. The
fruit can be one-half inch in
diameter, and are filled with
many black seed. They remind
me of small cherry tomatoes
with hardened skin. No doubt
that many others see this as well,
as they are very closely related to
tomatoes, peppers, and other
members of the nightshade fam-
ily.
According to Dr. Langeland,
the plants may freeze back in
winter, but will re-sprout from
their roots. Research shows that
75-85 percent of the seed will
sprout, and the seed can stay
alive even when buried an inch
in the soil for up to two years.
Birds and bats will also help
spread this plant by eating the
fruit and depositing them else-
where.
Last year, I was walking
through the Mexico pavilion at
EPCOT, in the Disney property,
and saw this upright woody
bush growing in the landscape
between the tropical Hibiscus
and Philodendrons. I also saw
one growing next to a neigh-
bor's bougainvillea vine, and the
resulting fruit easily spread many
seedlings into my yard. Have you
seen them in your neighbor-
hood?
Records are unclear as to
when it came to our area, but it
was grown as an ornamental


plant in the 1960's. At one time, it
was available for sale in Florida
nurseries. Because it is so easily
grown from seed, and escapes
into the landscape, there is no
commercial market for this plant
as an ornamental. In 2001, the
Florida Nursery Growers and
Landscapers Association recom-
mended that this species no
longer be propagated, sold or
used in Florida.
One office visitor wanted to
know if this plant was poison-
ous. I was not able to find any
information about poisonous
qualities occurring with twin-
leaf solanum, but since many of
this plant's relatives contain
highly toxic constituents, I'd not
recommend it as an edible plant.
The best way to keep this
invader from your Florida Yard is
to become familiar with what it
looks like, and pull the small
plants out before the berries are
formed. We don't have any spe-
cific recommendations for
chemicals that will selectively
remove Amatillo from your land-
scapes, but if herbicides are
desired, a carefully directed
application of a nonselective
weed killer like glyphosate will
discourage the seedlings.
Remember to read and follow all
label directions on any pesticide.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee Web page,

Beware of shooting walking sticks


Guess I'm lucky. A few years
ago I was training some Master
Gardeners and encountered a
Wheel-bug on a flowering shrub.
The pretty colors and unusual
shape were intriguing. I allowed it
to walk on my fingers and
showed the volunteers up close
what they looked like, and then
retuned it to the shrub. Later on, I
discovered that this predator
insect can pack a very painful
sting. I found that to be a close
call.
This past week I uncovered
another insect a walking stick
- hanging out in my Florida Yard.
I carefully picked them up (there
were two), and moved them off
the branch I was trimming. I've
now found out that this Florida
critter also has some hidden dan-
ger it can forcefully shoot a
caustic juice at attacking crea-
tures that can result in very
painful eye stings. So maybe it's
time to review what we know
about walking sticks another
interesting creature in our Florida
Yard.
Walking sticks are close rela-
tives to grasshoppers, crickets,
palmetto bugs and preying man-
tids. In Florida, the local kind of
walking stick is known as the
two-striped walking stick, Aniso-
morpha buprestoides. This fea-
tured insect has been reported
throughout Florida and around
the Gulf Coastal Plain west to


Texas. Other names applied to
these stick insects in general
include devil's riding horse,
prairie alligator, stick bug, witch's
horse, devil's darning needle,
scorpion, and the musk mare.
Walking sticks are among the
longest insects in the world -
one exotic species has been
measured at 22 inches! However,
the local two-striped females
average only two inches in length,
while the males are smaller and
more slender, averaging one inch.
Generally these insects are dark
brown with two long yellowish
stripes running down the length
of their back. However, there is a
strikingly distinct black and white
color form that is found only in
the area of the Ocala National For-
est. Check the color quickly if you
are collecting them, as they dis-
color upon death.
A second species of walking
sticks occur in the southeastern
U.S., but has not been seen in
Florida. It is smaller in size and
lighter in color, and lacks the
stripes. Other species of walking
sticks occur in the U.S. and across
the globe. Some are even used as
pets!
Some years the number of
these insects is greater than in
others. Duval County Horticulture
Agent Terry DelValle reported that
in the fall of 2003, the populations
of this insect were higher than
normal in Jacksonville. An ento-


mologist also reported a large
local population of these insects
north of Ocala just a few hours
before Hurricane Charley
stormed through last summer.
Typically, they do not eat so
many leaves with their chewing
mouthparts that they need to be
controlled pesticide use against
these insects is not suggested.
These insects feed on leaves of
trees and shrubs with some of
their favorites listed as crape myr-
tles, roses, oaks, rosemary, lyonia
and Ligustrum shrubs.
Since these insects show grad-
ual or incomplete metamorpho-
sis, they slowly get larger through
the growing season, and are most
likely to be seen in the late sum-
mer and fall. Often the larger
female can be seen with a smaller
one attached (male). The male
will mate and hold on to the
female for long periods of time -
it is thought that this is a way for
the male to be certain that other
males will not mate with that
female. Eggs are usually laid in
the fall on the ground in a pit and
covered with sand.
Our local walking stick has a
couple of defensive mechanisms
that Floridians should know
about. Their first line of defense is
to look like a dead stick, and so,
are often overlooked. In some
cases they vibrate, as if the wind
was blowing.
But, if they are physically dis-


turbed, they secrete a foul
smelling milky fluid from two
pores of the thorax. They also
have the ability to force a stream
from their body as far as a foot in
distance. Researchers have found
that this secretion contains sub-
stances that can produce a pow-
erful burning sensation if it gets
into the eyes.
For those that have had such
an encounter, the recommended
treatment is to wash the eye with
large amounts of water and take
over-the-counter analgesics for
pain. For severe symptoms, a trip
to the eye doctor may be neces-
sary. An individual in Texas was
reported to have vision problems
for up to five days. A report from
Brevard County last month says
that another person was sprayed
in the eyes by this insect.
An urban legend has been cir-
culating that an exotic walking
stick from Belize (or sometimes
Brazil) that was found in Texas
and is spreading east. According
to UF Entomologist Tom Fasulo,
while there are plenty of Central
and South American walking
sticks, they are not in Texas at
least not yet. This story is a hoax,
however, it is based upon some
truth. While there is no known
invasion of alien poison-spitting
walking sticks, our local native
two-striped walking stick can
spray a secretion that can cause
pain and impair vision..


Manatee is rescued


from Dry Tortugas


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
biologists are calling their latest
manatee rescue an unusual one.
With the help of National Park
Service rangers, employees of
Sunny Days Catamaran and
some other good Samaritans,
the FWC captured an emaciated
manatee this weekend from a
Fort Jefferson moat in the Dry
Tortugas, which is approximate-
ly 70 miles west of Key West.
"We were extremely sur-
prised to find a manatee that far
away from the Florida coast,"
said FWC biologist Christy
Hudak, who helped coordinate
the rescue. "Manatees are
coastal animals that need
access to freshwater for hydra-
tion. The Dry Tortugas doesn't
have a freshwater source,
which is why we believe this
manatee was so emaciated."
In fact, Hudak said, this is only
the second manatee rescued
that far away from the coast
since the Manatee Rescue Pro-
gram began during the mid-80s.
The manatee, nicknamed
"Jefferson", is being fed through
a tube at the Miami Seaquarium.
While "Jefferson" is not eating
on its own, the manatee is inter-
acting with others, which staff


"We were extremely
surprised to find a
manatee that far
away from the Flori-
da coast."
Christy Hudak,
FWC biologist

said was a good sign. The mana-
tee will remain at the Seaquari-
um until it is fully recovered, at
which point the FWC will assist
with releasing "Jefferson" back
into the wild.
Fort Jefferson park rangers
reported the misguided manatee
to the FWC in early September,
but storm activity postponed
recovery attempts. On Saturday,
Sunny Days Catamaran offered
the FWC use of an 86-foot cata-
maran to assist in transporting
equipment and, ultimately, the
manatee. Hudak said it took
about four hours to find, capture
and load the manatee onto the
boat. They kept the animal cool
and safe from sunburn by cover-
ing it with damp towels for the
2.5-hour boat ride to Key West,
where they transferred him to a
truck and moved him to Miami.


UN sea turtle recommendation under fire; experts say, not enough


FOREST KNOLLS, CA The
UN General Assembly will begin
considering a recommendation
to prevent the further decline of
endangered sea turtles. The rec-
ommendation, which some envi-
ronmentalists say will not do
enough to prevent the imminent
extinction of the leatherback sea
turtle in the Pacific, will be includ-
ed in resolution up for a General
Assembly vote Nov. 28. Environ-
mentalists are instead calling on
the UN to strengthen the recom-
mendation by implementing
urgently needed conservation
measures.
Recommended by a meeting
of the UN Convention on the Law
of the Sea this past June, the rec-
ommendation merely calls for
implementing a voluntary set of


guidelines by the UN Food and
Agriculture Organization.
"Although the FAO Guidelines
have some good parts to it, unfor-
tunately it is voluntary and cannot
be enforced. Every single FAO
plan has failed miserably. That is
why we need a moratorium until
sufficient measures can be put
into place," Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator with the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project.
To date, 1,007 scientists from
97 nations, 231 non-governmen-
tal organizations from 62 nations
and thousands of other citizens
from many countries that have
called on the United Nations urg-
ing it to implement a moratorium
on high seas pelagic long-line
fishing in the Pacific. The letter


has been signed by eminent sci-
entists including biologist Dr. E. 0.
Wilson, Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE
and Dr. Sylvia Earle.
"While we praise the UN for
finally calling for action to reduce
the threats to sea turtles from
deadly long-line fishing, we need
more than talk. We need scientifi-
cally proven measures that can
save the leatherback from extinc-
tion," Ovetz added.
The range of measures advo-
cated by environmentalists and
some countries include time and
area closures in key nesting and
migratory areas, reduction in
overcapacity of fishing effort, hard
caps on the by-catch of threat-
ened and endangered species,
best practices in by-catch mitiga-
tion, training for fishers, 100 per-


cent observer coverage, satellite
tracking of vessels and public
reporting of catch and by-catch
data. A recent study by NOAA
Fisheries has identified two spe-
cific routes used by sea turtles to
migrate across the Pacific.
Recent reports in the scientific
journals Nature and in the journal
Ecology have warned that billfish
and shark populations have
declined by about 90 percent in
the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico and
the Pacific since the 1950s.
Billfish and sharks as well as
sea turtles,- seabirds, marine
mammals and even tuna and
swordfish are caught and killed by
long-lines as so called by-catch. A
recent study by the Sea Turtle
Restoration Project found that
4.4-million of these species are


caught and killed in the Pacific
each year.
"Some countries were calling
for closed areas on the high seas
to protect the many species being
wiped out by long-lines but the
Japanese delegation blocked
everyone of them from being
included in the recommenda-
tion," Ovetz recounted. "Howev-
er, the General Assembly has the
opportunity to put real teeth back
into the recommendation by
implementing recommended
conservation measures."
The female nesting population
of the 100-million-year-old Pacific
leatherback sea turtle has col-
lapsed by 95 percent since 1980.
The leatherback is listed as criti-
cally endangered by the World
Conservation Union and scien-


tists warn that it could become
extinct in the next 5-30 years
unless immediate action to
remove threats to its survival,
such as long-line fishing. The
Pacific loggerhead sea turtle and
the black-footed albatross are
also caught primarily by long-
lines and considered on the
precipice of extinction. Long-line
fishing is the main threat to alba-
tross seabirds 19 of the 21 of
the species of which are consid-
ered threatened or endangered.
The General Assembly has
also been asked by two countries
to put the problem of the by-catch
of marine species by industrial
fishing on the agenda of the next
meeting of the UN Convention on
the Law of the Sea, which will
take place in June 2006.
