Wilma prompts feds to react


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE Hurricane
Wilma's arrival was weighted in
anticipation as she lingered off of
the Yucatan Peninsula much
longer than forecasters anticipat-
ed. She was supposed to move
into South Florida on Saturday,
but took her time in arriving early
Monday morning.
Residents across the South
Lake area couldn't figure out
whether they were bracing for a
Category One hurricane or if one
was going to come at all. But


come she did, and when she did hour and she refused to relent
decide to make her appearance, any of her power as she moved


she came with a vengeance.
Blustery winds became the
first sign.of Wilma's knock on the
door around 2 a.m. and it didn't
take long for that soft knock to
become an urgent pounding.
Wilma had a little something for
the forecasters who insisted that
she would hit the coast as maybe
a category two and move inland
as a category one. .
Instead, Wilma was packing
winds well over 100 miles per


her massive eye over the south
Florida area, marking Lake Okee-
chobee like a shooting target and
peppering communities south of
the lake with thundering winds
and drenching rains.
With the worst of the storm
apparently ahead of Wilma's eye,
lake residents took a breather
when the eye moved over the
area, expecting some type of
winds, but never guessing the
incredible intensity that was trail-

INI/MarK Young
Irony was not lost on
Hurricane Wilma as she
dropped a tree on top of
the Belle Glade memorial
to the 1928 hurricane
that killed thousands of
lake area residents.


Three generations of Belle-Glade residents lost their vehi-
cles to Hurricane Wilma. A son, his father, and his grandfa-
ther all lost their vehicles when the roof of their own home
blew off and smashed their vehicles below.

Grassy Waters Festival nears


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
PAHOKEE A few days
before Hurricane Wilma land-
ed on the shores of Florida,
Alice Thompson, executive
director of the Pahokee Cham-
ber of Commerce, hoped that
the upcoming Grassy Waters
Festival would carry a unique
theme this year: That of sur-
vival.
Through reports streaming
in at every hour repositioning
the possible trajectory of the
suddenly growing, suddenly
weakening storm, at least in
Pahokee, the thought focused
firmly on organizing another
successful annual festival.
Organizers of the festival,
which is held by the Pahokee
Chamber of Commerce in
close partnership with the city
of Pahokee and Everglades
Adventures, the resort busi-
ness located on the marina,


say that this year's festival will
be no different from the fun-
filled events of years past.
With one of the historically,
wildest of the festival partici-
pants at the helm this year,
there is no telling three weeks
away what surprises are in
store. Fire Chief Gary Bur-
roughs, the Lance Armstrong
of Tricycling, is heading up this
year's planning efforts.
Slowly but surely the prepa-
rations continue for the festi-
val said Chief Burroughs.
Never a complete festival
without a gospel fest, this
year's singing event will take
place a few days before the
actual November 19 festival,
with the gospel fest held on
the 17th at the Nazarene
Church in Pahokee. A number
of great entertainers will per-
form at the event at the
church, setting the mood early
for the weekend festival,


organizers say.
If you're not able to make it
to the actual gospel fest -
though it'd be a shame if you
didn't the festival promises
its own share of gospel enter-
tainment acts performing
throughout the day.
Starting at 10 a.m., the festi-
val will feature all of the things
that the community has come
to appreciate. There will be no
shortage of fun there, Chief
Burroughs was quick to say.
Rows of vendors offering
the finest in ethnic foods will
ensure that residents are well
fed at the festival. With all of
the attractions, it will be nec-
essary. Expect delicious
morsels ready for consump-
tion.
For the children, the travel-
ing carnival will make a

ing Wilma and was soon in store
for them.
The lack of knowing what to
expect became apparent in the
daylight hours when the so-
called "second half" of the storm
move in to finish off what
Wilma's first appearance could-
n't complete. Late Monday after-
noon, the winds began to die, the
rain began to stop, and slowly,
but surely, the wide-eyed resi-
dents began to take in Wilma's
path of destruction.
And it was evident indeed.


Telephone poles snapped like
toothpicks, three-hundred-year
old trees toppled like tossed
dolls, semi-trucks rolled over as it
they were merely toys, and
homes were lost.
Wilma devastated the state
and crushed the Glades, but not
into submission. Emergency and
recovery crews have launched
into action and the federal gov-
ernment is currently assessing
the damaged areas. Governor

Town to decide



future of local



business


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
SOUTH BAY Following
an initial conversation with rep-
resentatives of the South Bay-
based Structural Systems com-
pany, the city is now faced with
deciding whether or not to
allow the company to expand
its operations onto the Park of
Commerce.
The request from the com-
pany comes at a point in the
city's decision to let out an RFP
for the park of commerce,
requesting interested parties in
submitting proposals for use of
the land. Structural Systems
has told the city that the RFP


interferes with its plans of
expansion. Without the full
support of the city, representa-
tives said, the company that
now employs 80 could be
faced with leaving the city.
Caught in a policy move, the
city last week debated whether
or not to disregard the RFP in
favor of letting the company
move in to the site.
Several weeks ago, the com-
pany approached the city after
the city had provided informa-
tion on the RFP. Company rep-
resentatives at the time voiced

for your vehicle does much
more than just paying a registra-
tion fee. 'You are helping to
restore a 156-mile-long water-
way by contributing to local
environmental protection and

The Indian River Lagoon
license plate was the 16th most
popular of the state's 91 author-
ized plates last year. Four million
dollars has been raised from the
sale of the plate since it's incep-
tion in 1996.
Fifteen dollars from the sale
of each lagoon license plate are
combined with funding from
other sources and used to
restore' and protect the lagoon,
which is considered the most
diverse estuary in North Ameri-
ca. No administrative salaries or
studies are paid from license
plate revenue. The Florida
Department of Transportation
collects the license fees then
makes it available to the South

qualified applicants.
This year, three Martin Coun-

Hospital'
CLEWISTON Furniture that
was purchased for the Hendry
County Regional Medical Center
lobby by the H.R.M.C. Auxiliary
was made possible by the hard-
working volunteers within the
hospital. The auxiliary has sup-
plied various items for H.R.M.C.
including medical and surgical
equipment. The volunteers pro-
vide their time and energy to the
hospital and perform a variety of
duties.
But their central activity
revolves around the gift shop, a
small store within the hospital
that offers several different pick-
me-up shopping opportunities for
those currently in the hospital for
various reasons. The gift shop is
run by the volunteers and the pro-
ceeds from the shop go back into
the hospital to purchase items
normally outside of the range of
the hospital's normal budget.
This includes the new lobby
furniture and other items the vol-
unteers feel the hospital needs in
terms of small updates.
The auxiliary of Hendry
Regional Medical Center consists
of approximately 10 volunteers
who provide their services as fre-
quently as their schedules will
allow. These dedicated women,
recognized primarily by their pink
smocks, work behind the scenes

When the chips are down,


the Buffalo is empty


Thursday, October 27, 2005


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There's nothing like stepping in
a warm cow pie to realize that
some life experiences really stink.
Super-size it
and you have a
buffalo chip
experience.
There's a
story of a little
bird that got
caught in a
freeze and
couldn't fly. He
was about to
freeze to death John
on the ground Hicks
when a buffalo
came by and dropped a big pie
right on him.
I don't know about you, but I
can relate to that experience.
Things are going rough and just
when I think things can't get any
worse plop a big stinky situa-
tion is dropped on me.
I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him, but it simply is not true.
Life happens. And sometimes life
can be terribly, terribly difficult -
even for those who love Jesus.
Most of the time we take life for
granted and view it as a given. And
within life there are cow pie and
buffalo chip experiences. For many
it's not so much that we "have life
to live" as that "we have to live life."
But let's get back to the little
bird. Covered with the steaming
buffalo chip up to his neck, he
began to warm up. Feeling a lot bet-
ter, the bird began to shift around,
and then burst out in song. A pass-
ing fox happened to hear him and
plucked him out of the pile.
The moral of this little tale is that
being dumped on isn't necessarily
a bad thing, and being pulled out of

a situation isn't always the best
thing for us.
Sometimes we will go through a
difficult experience and it will make
us stronger. Often we'll have a new
appreciation for our family and
friends. More often than not, we'll
grow to rely on the promises of
God. Jesus has told us, "In this
world you will have trouble. But
take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33)
We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we can
know: Life is hard, but God is good,
because life with God is filled with
promise, and in Him we have a
Friend who is able to help us be
more than conquerors in life's situ-
ations. (Romans 8:37-38)
So, what are we to do when we
step in life's cow pies or get
dumped on? We are to go on. We
are to do what we can do. We pick
up the pieces and go forward the
best we can, trusting that God, fam-
ily, and friends will help us through
it all. We take inventory and realize
anew the really important things
and people in our life and embrace
them. We turn to God and trust in
His providence.
I can relate well to this anony-
mous quote: "I asked God for
strength that I might achieve; I was
made weak that I might learn
humbly to obey. I asked for health
that I might do great things; I was
given infirmity that I might do better
things. I asked for riches that I might
be happy; I was given poverty that I
might be wise. I asked for all things
that I might enjoy life; I was given
life that I might enjoy all things. I got
nothing that I asked for but every-
thing I had hoped for. Despite
myself, my prayers were answered.
I am, among all people, most richly
blessed."
Be most richly blessed.

Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I am a new
cat owner, and I am very surprised
to see that my cat Kujo seems to
sleep an awful lot. Does this mean
there is something wrong with
him? Do I need to take him to the
vet? James K. in Belle Glade.
A: Hello James K! That is a
great question. A domesticated,
well cared for cat with little to
worry about can sleep 15 to possi-
bly 18 hours a day. This can be
very normal indeed. However if
you think that.Kujo is not feeling
well, certainly take him to your vet-
erinarian for a check up. This way
you can be sure, and not have any
worries yourself. Take care James
K and best wishes, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello Doc,
my name is Carlos. I have a new
Pit-bull puppy, and I was told I
needed to have his ears trimmed.
Is it something [have to do?
A: Carlos, I am so happy you
asked that question! No, it is NOT
something you have to, need to, or
are supposed to do at all! Trim-
ming or cutting ears for certain
breeds is an old fashioned cosmet-
ic thing that at one time was con-
sidered the thing to do. Today it is
something that is frowned upon.
Also it is against the law to perform
this surgery in the United Kingdom


r -.
Doc Savvy
and Canada. Legislation to make
this procedure illegal in the United
States is expected sometime in
2006. So in other words, Carlos,
save your money! It is a costly and
painful experience for both dog
and owner. Use those funds to
make sure your puppy is fully vac-
cinated and protected against dis-
ease instead. Hope that helps Car-
los! 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 each Thurs-
day at 10:30 am on 93.5 FM The
Big Dawg.

Association


GAINESVILLE "Take This
Job and Shove It" is the title of a
1977 hit song about the frustra-
tions of people who lack control
over their work life. Now, for
those who dream about being
their own boss, three University
of Florida economists have come
up with a list of frequently asked
questions to help aspiring entre-
preneurs.
"No matter what kind of busi-
ness you want to start, there are
at least 10 important questions
that need to be answered right up
front," said Hank Cothran, an
associate in UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. "These
basic questions measure your
readiness to own and operate a
business."
Cothran, the lead author of
"Ten Frequently Asked Questions
for Small Business Start-Ups,"
developed the publication in
cooperation with David Mulkey, a
professor in UF's food and
resource economics department,
and Allen Wysocki, an assistant
professor in the department. The
complete document is available
at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/FE571.
"The 10 basic questions are
really just the beginning of a long
series of questions that must be
addressed by any new business
owner," Cothran said. "In addi-
tion, they will also need answers
about insurance, intellectual
property issues, employee issues
and independent contractors."
Question No. 1: Do I have
what it takes to operate a busi-
ness? To answer this, make an
honest assessment of your own
motivation, talents, skills and
experience, Cothran said. For
example, .can you work alone?
Are you willing to take risks? Can
you make good management
decisions? Do you have the physi-
cal and emotional stamina to run
a business? Do you get along well
with others?
"Because few people have all
the desirable qualities, look for
ways to compensate for your
weak areas, such as taking class-
es, finding a mentor, hiring capa-
ble people or adding a partner
with the necessary skills,"
Cothran said.
Question No. 2: What kind of
business should I start? Consult
with local experts and other busi-
ness owners of the product or
service you want to offer, and
check with potential customers
to see if they are willing to pay for
it. Find out what kind of business
is best for you.
Question No. 3: What do I do
first? Once you have decided that
starting a business is the right
step for you and you have a
doable business idea, think about
a name and location for the busi-
ness. Register your business with
the proper authorities, obtain the
necessary licenses and permits,
and develop production sched-
ules and marketing and pricing
plans.
Question No. 4: How should I
organize my business? Most
small businesses are formed as
sole proprietorships, in which


business income is treated the
same as personal income for tax
purposes. A significant disadvan-
tage is that you, the owner,
assume personal liability for the
actions of the business.
Other types of business organ-
izations in Florida include general
and limited partnerships, corpo-
rations, and limited-liability com-
panies. For information on ways
to organize a business, visit the
Florida Department of State's
Web site at
http://www.dos.state.fl.us/start-
bus/index.html. Other important
information is available at the
main DOR Web site at
http://myflorida.com/dor/busi-
nesses.
Question No. 5: What permits
or licenses do I need? Licensing
and permitting regulations vary
with the type of business and the
city, county and state where the
business is located. Some busi-
nesses face minimal licensing
requirements while others are
tightly controlled. In some cases,
you as an individual and the busi-
ness itself must have separate
licenses.
Sources of information
include UF county extension
offices, the city or county clerk's
office, small business develop-
ment centers and the local cham-
ber of commerce. Also, check
with the Service Corps of Retired
Executives, the Small Business
Administration and Enterprise
Florida.
Obtain the proper zoning per-
mit before opening your busi-
ness. If businesses are prohibited
in the area where you'd like to
locate your business, learn if
there is a waiver provision or if
the ordinance can be changed.
Without the necessary permit or
waiver, local authorities can close
your business immediately. As
the owner, you may face civil
and/or criminal penalties.
"Even with proper permits,
maintaining good relations with
neighbors is good business,"
Cothran said. "City and county
authorities are cautious about
allowing a business to operate in
residential areas. They want to
avoid problems with traffic,
noise, fumes, signs, or parking."
Most Florida businesses need
sales and use tax permits, which
are available from the Florida
Department of Revenue's Web
site at
http://www.myflorida.com/dor/t
axes.
In addition to the sales and
use tax permit, there is an
Employer Identification Number
(EIN) issued by the Internal Rev-
enue Service. Sole proprietors
who have no employees can use
their personal Social Security
number. All other businesses
must obtain an EIN.
Question No. 6: How do I get
people to buy my product or
service? Sales happen because of
marketing, which identifies cus-
tomers and what they want to
buy. Marketing involves six
issues, ranging from the product
and how it is produced to pricing,

promotion, distribution and cus-
tomer perception of the product
or service.
Question No. 7: Why do I
need a business plan? Develop a
plan for yourself as well as your
partners, investors and bankers.
The plan should identify the
product or service, the market,
the management team, where
the business will operate and
your business experience.
The plan should include a
market study, promotional strate-
gies, current and projected bal-
ance sheets, income statements
and cash flow analyses. It out-
lines how, when and where
financial support will be obtained
and how loans made to the busi-
ness will be repaid. The plan pro-
vides general operating informa-
tion, along with information
about Where the'business i f how,
where it has been and where it is
going.
Question No. 8: What are the
alternatives to help me finance
my business? Commitment of
personal funds is often the first
financing step. It is an indicator of
how serious you are about the
business and conveys your confi-
dence to investors. Personal
investment sources of capital
include savings, current cash
flow, second job income, home
equity or equity from other prop-
erty or assets, retirement
accounts, personal lines of credit
and personal credit cards. All of
these options have risks.
"In addition to personal funds,
family members and friends may
be a source of financial help,"
Cothran said. "Remember that
successful loans from friends or
relatives begin with a contract
that clearly defines the amount of
the loan, interest rates, and pay-
ment dates and amounts. You
may want to seek professional
help in drawing up a contract."
Other, more complex financ-
ing options are also available.

must be established in writing
and appropriate forms must be
filed with the clerk of the court.
Business loans can be obtained
from several sources, such as
commercial banks and credit
unions, commercial finance
companies, local development
companies, venture capital firms,
and insurance companies. How-
ever, venture capital firms and
insurance companies typically
are not useful for owners of small
businesses.
Question No. 9: What records
do I need to keep? The records
needed to manage your business
and the records needed by the
IRS may differ. While the busi-
ness owner is interested in where
and how income is generated
and where,.._,.expenses are
incurred; the IRS requires records
that \ ill allo\\ Ioi the preparation
and doc6'rnentalton ol a complet-
ed tax return.
However, all businesses must
keep basic financial records: jour-
nals and ledgers, such as a check-
book register, accounts receiv-
able, records of sales, inventory,
cash receipts and cash disburse-
ments. Records must also docu-
ment mileage, mean expenses
and entertainment.
If your business hires employ-
ees, additional records are
required. Remember that all
financial records are historical
documents. This includes tax
returns and the documentation
for those returns. Business docu-
ments such as filing of the busi-
ness name, incorporation/part-
nership papers, sales tax permits,
Federal Employee Identification
numbers and insurance records
must be retained indefinitely.
For yearly tax returns, keep the
records for three years after the
filing of that year's taxes. Records
involving property must be kept
for the entire time the property is
owned, plus an additional three
years minimum.

Nelson urges defense to stop hounding troops


WASHINGTON, D.C. The
Pentagon is using collection
agencies to hound combat-
wounded soldiers, sailors, air-
men and Marines to pay for their
helmets and other equipment
lost inif' battle. And some of these
service members have had their
finances blackened by negative
reports to credit bureaus.
Still other wounded troops
have found themselves in debt
to Uncle Sam and besieged
by bill collectors, as. well -
because the Pentagon's com-
puterized pay system routinely
makes mistakes in figuring pay-
checks.
But the controversial practice
of sending private collection
agencies after the combat
wounded could' end soon if
Defense Secretary Donald
Rumsfeld heeds the request of at
least one U.S. senator on the
Armed Services Committee.
"I urge you to immediately
suspend all collection efforts
directed at wounded service
members whether still on active
duty or released to the care of
the .veterans' health system,"
Senator Bill Nelson (D-FL )
wrote in a letter to Rumsfeld this
week. "Until we achieve an
acceptable standard of accuracy
and reliability in the systems for
administering service members'
debts, the (defense) Depart-
ment cannot justify using collec-
tion agencies or filing negative
credit reports against our
wounded soldiers, sailors, air-


men or Marines."
Because of the wars in
Afghanistan and Iraq, there are
more wounded troops coming
home than at any time since the
Vietnam War in the late 1960s
and early 1970s. Although the
Pentagon can't pinpoint the full
number of wounded active-duty
troops with debts, an Army offi-
cial recently told the Washing-
ton Post it had identified 331 sol-
diers who have been hit with
military debt after being wound-
ed at war.
In a detailed report on the
problem last week, the Post
cited the case of one soldier
whose hand had been blown off
in Iraq and his body pierced by
shrapnel. He flew home for a
long and intensely painful recov-
ery at Walter Reed Army Medical
Center.
But nine months after he was
wounded, the Army garnished
his wages because it said he
owed them $6,200; and, a col-
lection agency went after him
for another $646 for military
housing, the Post said.
Last Spring, such pay-and-
debt problems across the mili-
tary branches came under
scrutiny from a U.S. House com-
mittee, which asked the Govern-
ment Accountability Office -
the investigative arm of Con-
gress to conduct a thorough
review.
In July of 2004, the GAO
reported that 95 percent of Army
Reserve soldiers experienced


pay problems. Some pay issues
took as long as a year to com-
pletely resolve. Of the 348 sol-
diers participating in the study,
256 received overpayments -
and thus were in debt, another
294 received underpayments,
and 285 received late payments
of active duty pay and
allowances. In February of 2005,
the GAO found that 63 percent
of soldiers participating in a case
study experienced problems
with the active duty medical
extensions process, causing
them to lose their active duty
pay without cause.
As a result of Pentagon
errors, military service mem-
bers are being forced into debt
through no fault of their own,
Nelson said, citing an illustrative
complaint his own office
received. One particular con-
stituent from Ocala, Florida has
experienced pay problems asso-
ciated with two deployments in
Iraq as a military police officer,
and still is struggling to sort out
a mess that originally began in
early 2003.
Although payment mistakes
were made by the Pentagon, the
man was expected to repay the
military for a $2,249.51 overpay-
ment including $562.12 he
never received because it was
withheld for federal taxes.
The outdated military-pay
system has deeply affected this
soldier's ability to provide
necessities for his wife and chil-
dren, Nelson said; and, adding

insult to injury the defense
department last month denied
an appeal on the man's behalf
by Nelson's office.
Nelson said the Pentagon
using collection agencies poses
a particular hardship for combat
wounded troops and their fami-
lies. Calling the dogs off these
troops is a starting point, he
said, adding that the Pentagon
also needs to understand the
hardships its flawed pay system
causes other service members
and to explore appropriate
relief.

Lions break winless streak on Gator Field


By Mark Young
BELLE GLADE Last year, the
King's Academy Lions broke a 25-
year winless streak with a victory
over the Gators at home, but
Glades Day would exact their
revenge with a 21-19 victory over
the Lions in the playoffs.
History won't be repeating
itself this year after the Lions
moved up to 2B this season,
meaning these two squads won't
be seeing one another in the play-
offs, leaving the Gators with hav-
ing to wait another year before
looking to payback their rivals.
The Lions also broke another
winless streak, this one ending a
historic drought by beating the
Gators at Gator Field, something
the Lions have never done before.
The Lions' 23-7 win over the


Gators were certainly helped by
four Gator turnovers three
picks and one fumble.
But the game began as antici-
pated between these two rivals,
with both clubs scoring on their
first drives of the ball game. The
Lions marched 76 yards on the
game's opening possession and
ended with a short touchdown
pass. The Gators responded with
a 70-yard touchdown pass from
Josh McGregor to Andrew Joseph
to knot the game up at 7-7, which
is where it would stand through
the first quarter.
Turnovers in the second quar-
ter killed the Gator attack and kept
the Lion offense on the field and
they would capitalize on the
opportunity with 10 unanswered
points to take a 17-7 lead into the


break.
King's Academy added a third
quarter touchdown to assume a
23-7 lead, which is where the final
score would end. The Gator
defense was its usual stubborn
self and kept the Lion ground
game to under 100 yards. But the
Lions had an answer for that
problem in their passing game
and gathered in 164 yards of pass-
ing and two Lion touchdowns
came from the air.
The Gators showed promise in
their offense, with McGregor
throwing for 194 yards and a
touchdown and the Gators col-
lected 113 yards on the ground
with Lugo rushing for 88 of those
yards on 14 carries. But the three
picks and the fumble would be
the deciding factor in this ball


game as drives were stopped cold
and scoring opportunities created
for the Lions.
The Gators had a five-game
win streak come to an end with
the loss to the Lions, but claim a
solid 5-2 record and have already
secured a playoff spot. On Oct. 28,
the Gators will travel to play a
struggling Moore Haven squad for
district supremacy. Should the
Gators win, they will claim the dis-
trict championship and host a first
round playoff game.
The Terriers are coming off a
bye and have nothing to lose in
this district showdown, making
them a dangerous contender to
play the spoiler for a possible
Gator home playoff game. Kick
off is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. at
Terrier Stadium, in Moore Haven.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month
















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 charge at the time of mammogram.

Water pollution program starts locally


Edward L. Ayen has been
appointed to introduce the Flori-
da Yards & Neighborhoods
(FY&N) program in the Okee-
chobee region, which includes
Highlands, Okeechobee and
Glades counties.
The Okeechobee region is
faced with a growing number of
problems with regard to lake and
ground water quality and natural
resource degradation. The FY&N
program will initiate programs


that will educate participants as
to the importance of natural
resource protection through
responsible lawn management.
The core FY&N programs will
target homeowners, garden cen-
ter personnel and landscape pro-
fessionals, with recruitment of
neighborhoods, yards and busi-
nesses. This will be accom-
plished by distribution of infor-
mation, training and utilization of
volunteer groups and a yard cer-


tification program.
Organizations cooperating
with the FY&N program are: Uni-
versity of Florida (UF) Depart-
ment of Environmental Horticul-
ture, UF Cooperative Extension
Service, county and municipal
governments, Florida Lake-
watch, Water Management Dis-
tricts, UF multi-county Sea Grant
Program, and public utility com-
panies within the three county
area.


Manatees may be removed from ES Act


As if the passage of Congress-
man Richard Pombo's bill virtual-
ly gutting the federal Endangered
Species Act (ESA) wasn't bad
enough, it also included a poorly
drafted, and hastily written
amendment spearheaded by
Florida's Congressional member
Adam Putnam to exclude the
endangered manatee from pro-
tections under the Marine Mam-
mal Protection Act (MMPA).
Conservationists are alarmed,
as the last minute amendment
provided no opportunity for pub-
lic testimony. They say the
amendment was evidently
designed to strip manatees of crit-
ical protections that were vital to
the recent adoption of federal
sanctuaries and refuges in areas
of historically high manatee mor-
tality and injury.
Under Putnam's amendment,
if the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service
(Service) performs an ESA con-
sultation with a federal permit-
ting agency on dock building
projects that could affect mana-
tees, the consultation will be con-
sidered the equivalent of an
MMPA incidental take authoriza-
tion and will allow projects that
would likely hurt or kill manatees
to move forward.
The MMPA extends additional
protections beyond the ESA to
endangered marine mammals to
assist in their recovery to sustain-
able populations. Specifically,
Putnam's amendment means
that any individual dock permit
can only be denied if that particu-
lar dock would jeopardize the
entire population of manatees,


even though the dock's construc-
tion and subsequent use by boats
would likely lead to more mana-
tees being killed or injured by
boat collisions.
Conservationists say the intro-
duction and passage of Repre-
sentative Putnam's amendment
is a blatant attack on manatees -
especially since boat strikes con-
tinue to be the largest known
cause of manatee deaths in Flori-
da.
"More docks are being built in
Florida than at any time I can
remember and very few dock
permits have been denied. Even
so, Putnam has been working
with the Florida Marine Contrac-
tor's Association (FMCA) to elim-
inate protections for manatees
afforded them under the existing
MMPA," said Patrick Rose, mana-
tee expert and director of Govern-
ment Relations for Save the Man-
atee Club. "FMCA filed a lawsuit
last year against the Service alleg-
ing that the MMPA did not apply
to Florida's inland waters. They
wanted to get their permits to
build docks and marinas without
having to worry about how many
manatees their boating activities
would kill, so long as each indi-
vidual dock would not cause the
manatee to go extinct."
Earlier this year, the judge in
FMCA's case ruled that the MMPA
did, indeed, apply to the inland
waters of Florida. The conserva-
tion community expressed aston-
ishment that President Bush's
Department of the Interior
argued the MMPA should protect
manatees in Florida waters dur-


ing the court case, but then did a
complete about face and sup-
ported Putnam's legislative
amendment.
With development profits sky-
rocketing from waterfront prop-
erty sales in recent years, the bat-
tle to protect the manatee versus
developing what's left of Florida's
coastline has heated up. In some
cases, individual docks built over
public lands have been sold/con-
veyed for over $1 million. Devel-
opers and the marine industries
are anxious to ensure manatees
don't get in the way of their mod-
ern-day gold rush.-
According to environmental
attorney, Eric Glitzenstein, of
Meyer Glitzenstein and Crystal in
Washington D.C., "Presently
under MMPA regulations, the Ser-
vice cannot authorize the 'taking'
of manatees from dock building
and boating activities and there-
fore proposed projects must
either be modified to include
conservation measures or in
extreme cases even denied, if
there is a reasonable assurance
that manatees will be killed or
injured. The practical effect of the
Putnam amendment is a legal
sanction to actually injure or kill a
manatee during dock building or
associated boating activities."
With the House of Represen-
tatives' passage of the Pombo bill
that repeals protections for
endangered species criti-
cal habitat, and the removal of
manatees from the protections of
the MMPA, the future prospects
for recovery of the manatee look
grim.


Harris urges mortgage deduction limit


WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voiced her opposition to a
proposed recommendation to
limit mortgage interest tax deduc-
tions. According to recent press
accounts, the President's Adviso-
ry Panel on Federal Tax Reform is
considering a recommendation
to cap the mortgage interest tax
deduction at $300,000.
Harris and Representative
Steve Israel (D-N.Y.) are leading a
bipartisan effort to urge the Presi-
dent's Tax Reform Panel to recon-
sider a proposed recommenda-
tion to limit mortgage deductions.
Harris and Israel are working to
garner support among members
of Congress and plan to send a let-
ter to the Advisory Panel. .
"While I commend the Presi-
dent's bold effort to examine
avenues for tax reform, I oppose
efforts that would discourage
homeownership and stifle eco-
nomic growth. Therefore, I urge
the panel to reconsider proposed
recommendations to limit the
mortgage interest deduction,"
said Harris.
Currently 37 million taxpayers
benefit from the mortgage inter-


est deduction, saving families $70
billion annually. Additionally, the
President's projections to create
5.5 million new homeowners by
the end of the decade would
inject $256 billion into our econo-
my. The creation of new home-
owners magnifies housing con-
struction and helps many small
businesses grow.
"Savings from mortgage
deductions are essential to many
families especially those in the
first years of a hew mortgage,"
Harris stated.
According to the Florida Asso-
ciation of Realtors, the median
home price for the Sarasota-
Bradenton area, which Congress-
woman Harris represents, has
increased 34 percent in one year
to $347,400.
The letter, which will be sent to
the President's Advisory Panel on
Federal Tax Reform, states:
"Since the enactment of the
federal tax code in 1913, one of
the most powerful incentives for
expansion and preservation of
homeownership has been the
deductibility of mortgage interest.
"We encourage you to consid-
er other options that do not ham-


per the ability of our constituents
to achieve the American dream,
which would bring about numer-
ous negative social and economic
ramifications."
--Congresswoman Harris- has -.
worked tirelessly to make the
American dream a reality for all
Americans, according to the Con-
gresswoman's press agent. Harris
authored the American Dream
Down payment Act, which was
signed into law in 2003. The
American Dream Down payment
Act helps approximately 40,000
families each year make home-
ownership a reality by assisting
with down payment and closing
costs while educating buyers
through the purchasing process.
Earlier this year Harris spon-
sored an amendment that suc-
cessfully restored $60 million in
funding to the HOPE VI grant pro-
gram. Additionally, Harris has
sponsored the Housing Afford-
ability for Teachers and Public
Officers Act of 2005 which would
provide a one percent down pay-
ment on mortgage loans so that
teachers and public officers can
afford to purchase homes within
the communities they serve.


SAVE UP TO 55%

ON LEADING PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS
Introducing the DemiDoseTM Pill Splitter





DE.MtIDOSEh
I I 1 L L L S L I T T EE
> SAFE > ACCURATE > EASY-TO-USE


DemiDoseTM half-splits many high-priced brand name prescription
medications, and does so with 92% to 100% accuracy.
DemiDoseTm features different pill beds for different pill sizes within
particular families of medication. It is more accurate for more
medications than any other splitter on the market today. The
Doctor who designed DemiDoseTM made it safe and easy to use
even for individuals with tremor disorders or visual impairments.

DemiDoseTM can save you between 35% and 55% on the cost of
many brand name prescription medications.


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 yotf
advantage,


DemiDoseTM 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 OermiDose"?
DemiDoseTM half-splits different


dose sizes
medications:
> Accupril
> Fosamaxs
> Levitra
> Levaquin
> Norvasc
> Premarine
> Synthroide
> Zocori
> Zyprexa


of the following

> Cialss
> Imitrex Oral
> Lipitore
> Lexapro
> Pravachole
> Prempro
> Viagrae
> Zoloft
> Zyrtece


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

H.O.RE Meetings
Citizens of the city of South
Bay have recently formed a
group called H.O.P.E. "Helping
Others Pursue Equality." This is
due to the monthly increase in
our water and sewer bills and


working diligently to restore
power to the Glades. But accord-
ing to FP&L spokesperson, power
may not be restored to the Glades
until sometime next week due to
the main transfer station being
destroyed on Hwy. 80, however
some emergency responders are
suggesting residents acquire gen-
erators, suggesting it may be
much longer than that.
However, Congressman Foley
fully expects that the Glades and
other communities will recover,
but said there is work to be done.
"I toured Belle Glade (Tues-
day) morning and I'm really con-
cerned about it," said Congress-
man Foley. "I could see that
people were frightened and
relieved while they waited in the
distribution lines. You could see
that they had been through quite
an ordeal."
Congressman Foley said he is
worried about the economic
impact this storm is going to have


be less than what the cities now
tax residents for, with the guaran-
tee of services that the Glades
simply could not afford to pro-
vide. Training and the upkeep of
the vehicle, for example, would
be covered by the county, as well
as the possibility of the construc-
tion of new stations to house the
services.
The county's presence in the
area under the proposed five-year
agreement to each of the cities
will ensure that the minimum
level of standard that the cities
face will be met.
In essence, the three fire
departments will be absorbed
into the county's department.
Recently, Pahokee was the first
of the municipalities to agree to
the terms, going ahead with
approving the contract with the

location that the company
expanded from its initial parcel of
land leased in 1998. The new area
would allow the company to con-
struct new fabrication facilities,
including the construction of a
ready-mix concrete facility.
Since then, the city has denied
the existence of such documents.
According to staff at city hall, no
document in its archives support
the claim that both the city and
the company had agreed to the
sale of the land at a future date.
City hall said that, in fact, the only
lease on hand has since expired,
though South Bay officials contin-
ue to make an effort to keep the
company by not making an issue
of not having a lease in place.

on the lake area, which is primari-
ly agriculture. He said the sight of
all those sugarcane fields flat-
tened just before harvest is cause
for concern.
"It's sad," he said. "It's going to
have an economic impact on the
communities to include jobs.
There is so much dependency on
agriculture in the area, from cit-
rus, to sugar, to cattle. The next
few weeks are going to be
telling."
Congressman Foley also noted
the widespread structural dam-
age to businesses, government
facilities, and private homes. He
toured the area with Governor
Bush and Lieutenant Governor
Jennings throughout the day on
Tuesday and is determined to
include Hendry, Glades, and Palm
Beach Counties in the individual
assistance program, where pri-
vate individuals can approach the
federal government for financial
assistance for rebuilding.


county for the services.
Pahokee has historically had a
good working relationship with
the county, with the county pro-
viding the vast majority of funding
to cover the expenses of the city's
fire department. City officials said
the new partnership is a natural
extension to the relationship.
What Pahokee's decision has
done is in effect rule out the possi-
bility that the remaining munici-
palities, Belle Glade and South
Bay, would join departments,
without Pahokee. There simply
would not be the resources or the
manpower to accomplish that,
officials with South Bay's fire
department said.
At its meeting last week, South
Bay commissioners approved the
first reading of an ordinance to
enter into the county's MSTU.

Counties have already approved
as of press time. Following Tues-
day's tour of the area, Congress-
man Foley is confident that he,
along with Governor Bush will
give the appropriate nod to the
White House in order to ensure
that the program is offered locally.
Public assistance is also
expected to be approved in order
to allow cities to apply for federal
funds to help pay for recovery
efforts, which are expected to be
ongoing for weeks to come.
If there is one positive issue to
this storm, it has been FEMA's
reaction to Hurricane Wilma.
"FEMA has been great," said
Congressman Foley. "I was one of
their most outspoken critics fol-
lowing Hurricane Katrina, but
everywhere I've been today,
(FEMA) has been on the job. I
think a lesson was learned on Kat-
rina and (FEMA) was better pre-
pared for this one."


One exception that South Bay is
looking at is not repealing its cur-
rent ordinance. The city is saying
that its ordinance simply would
not be applied while it contracts
with the county, and at a later date
can return to if it decides in the
future to cancel its partnership
with the county.
The city of Belle Glade is also
considering the same option and
commissioners will be voting on
the issue at a future meeting of
the city commission.
The county will continue to
monitor the situation as it pro-
gresses, though county officials
have urged the local municipali-
ties to act quickly in approving the
contract, in order that the amend-
ment to the county's MSTU can
be submitted to the Property
Appraiser's office by year's end.


at an earlier meeting in which the
subject was discussed limited his
comments for fear of legal action
on the part of the company, said
he agreed that South Bay should
work in keeping an established
business. His only problem
results from the amount of land
that the company is asking for.
"We've just continued to work
with Structural Systems to keep
them here. I desire to keep them
here," said Mayor Anthony. "I
have a concern with 40 acres of
property."
Mr. Ambrose told the commis-
sion that the lowest number of
acres it could hope to expand on
is 30 acres.
The topic is expected to be dis-
cussed again at a future meeting
of the city commission.


Alice Thompson, Executive
Director of the Chamber of
Commerce of Pahokee, is also
looking forward to the festival
this year.
She was sure the hurricane's
impact in Florida would not
eliminate Grassy Waters Festival

that the residents at the festival
will come together "to hopefully
celebrate surviving the hurri-

Lady Gators



head to regions


By Mark Young

WEST PALM BEACH The
Lady Gators will take their region-
al championship aspirations on
the road to Pompano Beach to
take on Highlands Christian fol-
lowing their second place finish at
districts Oct. 20, in West Palm
Beach.
As of press time, the Lady
Gators are already in tournament
competition, but were forced on
the road after succumbing to
King's Academy who swept
Glades Day on the Lady Lion
home court in three straight.
But not before the Lady Gators
blistered a trail through the district
tournament by overpowering
Summit Christian by scores of 25-
8, 27-25, and 25-9 to open the dis-
trict tournament Oct. 24. The vic-
tory pitted Glades Day against St.
Edwards Oct. 25 for the opportu-
nity to secure a place in regionals
as either the district champion or
the runner-up.
Glades Day had little trouble in
dispatching St. Edwards to guar-
antee a regional appearance, as
the Lady Gators gobbled up the
victory with a three-game sweep.
Glades Day took the victory with
scores of 27-25, 25-21, and 25-18.
Senior Ashley Baughman led
the Lady Gators to victory with 13
kills, but had plenty of help from
Glades Day's sophomore sensa-
tion Danielle Sly who tallied 11
kills and 22 service points, and the
Lady Gator on court leader, junior
Alleigh Schlechter who posted 11
kills of her own for the match.
The two victories saw the Lady
Gators take the court against the.
host team from King's Academy
who entered the tournament as
the number one seed and the
favorite to win the championship.
The Lady Lions had defeated the
Lady Gators twice during the reg-
ular season and despite Glades
Day sailing through the tourna-
ment to pick up their 11th victory
of the season, were tentative
against the Lady Lions to open the
championship match.
Glades Day entered the final
match a little on edge and the jit-
ters were somewhat apparent in a
match that exposed some confi-
dence issues. Those early jitters
would cost the Lady Gators as
King's Academy broke open a
quick 5-0 lead as Glades Day
struggled to get their offense in
sync.
The Lady Lions opened up an
11-4 lead before Sly gave the Lady
Gators an emotional lift with a

Day would succumb in a bid
for the district title.
strong kill, followed by a kill from
sophomore Natalie Harville. The
back to back kills pulled the Lady
Gators within five, but the Lady
Lions would hold that advantage
until late in the match when they
broke it open with a four-point
run and eventually closed put a
25-16 victory in game one.
Game two saw a repeat per-
formance as the Lady Lions
jumped out to a quick 7-1 advan-
tage. The Lady Gators composed
themselves and mounted a brief
comeback behind the net play of
Sly and junior Candace Pavey. Sly
mounted a solid defensive per-
formance, denying two Lady Lion
kill attempts to help pull the Lady
Gators within a four-point deficit.
King's Academy held a 13-9
advantage, but launched a six-
point run in collecting triple aces
to open up a 19-9 lead. The Lady
Lions would hold on to a 25-12
victory in game two.
Fighting for the championship,
the Lady Gators claimed their first
lead of the match in game three
with Baughman leading the way
with a kill and block to give her
squad a 4-2 advantage, but the
lead would' be fleeting after a 5-5
deadlock was shattered by a Lady
Lion six-point run. King's Acade-
my would duplicate that effort to
take a 20-7 lead later in the match

and went on to claim the district
championship with a 25-13 victo-
ry over the Lady Gators.
Glades Day is currently in


regional action as of press.time,
barring the outcome of Hurricane
Wilma, which may delay regional
action across the state.

Local businesses sought for Acceler8 projects


By Cindy Bailey
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District hosted an Accel-
er8 Construction and Business Out-
reach Symposium at LaBelle Civic
Center, on Wednesday Oct. 19, to
introduce the Acceler8 and
SFWMD construction projects, to
local businesses in LaBelle.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District, as stated on its
website, is a regional, agency that
oversees the water resources in the
southern half of the state. It is the
oldest and largest of the state's five
water management districts.
The eight Acceler8 projects are:
C-43 (Caloosahatchee River) West
Reservoir, Everglades Agricultural
Area Reservoir Phases I with
Bolles and Cross canals improve-
ments, Everglades Agricultural Area
Stormwater Treatment Area Expan-
sion, Picayune Strand (Southern
Golden Gate Estates) Restoration,
C-44 (St. Lucie Canal),
Reservoir/Stormwater Treatment
Area, Water Preserve Areas, Bis-
cayne Bay Coastal Wetlands -
Phase I.and C- 111 Spreader Canal.
The symposium addressed all
eight projects, with reference to Job
Training and Business Develop-
ment, Small Business Develop-
ment, Enterprise Zone Benefits and
the SFWMD Construction Projects
overview.
In the next three months more
than $70 million in contract servic-
es will be solicited by the SFWMD
under the Acceler8 program. Sever-
al solicitations will be issued for
smaller projects in order to involve
small companies in the area.
SFWMD allows companies to
bid on contacts up to $50,000 with-
out being registered. Pre-registra-
tion is required for construction
work above $50,000.
"The whole intention of Accel-
er8 is to spread the work around,"
said Frank Hayden, Procurement
Development Director.
Stated on an information leaflet
given out on Wednesday evening,
an expanded business outreach ini-
tiative by the SFWMD is helping
smaller, local firms be part of the
action. Rio-Bak Corporation, a gen-
eral contractor with an office in
Belle Glade, was awarded two con-
tracts in September for the Acceler8

time, although work can be divided
between several contractors if a
project was too big for a company
to complete alone.
Ferrano said, "You have the
opportunity to work on three differ-
ent smaller projects, rather than
one big project or just work on one
big project. That is what is so great
about our program-the choice is
yours."
Qualification training is available
through SFWMD. Pre-employment
to a company that will support the
Acceler8 program will be paid in
full by SFWMD. For post employ-
ment training SFWMD will con-
tribute 50 percent toward the cost.
For more information contact Jim
Reynolds, Procurement, at (561)
682-2397 or at
jreynolds@sfwmd.gov.
"You can determine what area
you want to work in. What would
be best for you, for your company?
Look at the website, you can deter-
mine wherever you want to work,"
said Ferrano.
There is another opportunity to
attend the Construction Sympo-
sium, in Okeechobee on Thursday,
Oct. 27, between 3.-7. p.m., the
location is to be determined. All
information can be found on the
website.

Alico-Agri announces 291 acre land purchase


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, announced
that Alico-Agri, Ltd., a wholly
owned subsidiary of Agri-Insur-
ance Co., Ltd. and Alico, Inc.,
purchased approximately -291
acres in Polk County, Florida on
Oct. 11, 2005 for $9.2 million.


The property contains 2,100
feet of road frontage on U.S. 27
and 2,600 feet of road frontage
on County road 640. The proper-
ty also includes approximately
2,640 feet of lakefront along
Crooked Laly, a 6,000-acre lake.
The company identified the
property as an exchange proper-
ty under section 1031 of the Inter-
nal Revenue Code and intends to


defer tax on $9.2 million of pro-
ceeds from the recently
announced Ginn sale in connec-
tion with the acquisition.
John R. Alexander, chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "We
are excited about the Crooked
Lake acquisition. The property
currently contains citrus grove,
woodlands and pasture. We will
be exploring alternative uses for


the property, including commer-
cial and residential development.
The property met with our goal
of acquiring undeveloped prop-
erty with development potential
in the path of progress. We
believe the returns from this
investment over the next five
years will prove rewarding to our
shareholders."

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

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

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

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.'

Unusual climate pattern affects lake


By MaryAnn Morris
The current weather pattern
has not taken place for the past
50 or 100 years, say scientists.
"We are experiencing an
uncommon event. South Florida
climate varies in cycles, some
that form patterns with long
return frequencies. This certain-
ly is an event of a magnitude that
normally occurs once every 50
to 100 years. That these weath-
er/climate factors are happening
at the same time, is a rarity," said
Dr. Jayantha Obeyserkera,
Director of the Hydrologic and
Environmental Systems Model-
ing Department at the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict. Educated in India and the
U.S., Dr. Obeyserkera has prac-
ticed water resource engineer-
ing for over 20 years and taught
in five countries: Dominican
Republic, Columbia, Spain, Sire
Lanka and the U.S.
Working with Paul Trimble, a
lead engineer working with
SFWMD for 28 years whose
work in hydrologic and climate
has been verified statistically by
scientists at NOAA's national
research lab in Miami, Dr. Obey-
sekera and his colleagues have
studied past weather patterns
and have closely followed them
since last year's unusual hurri-
cane activity. They now believe
that Florida is seeing a tempera-
ture and rainfall pattern not seen
in many decades.
Statistics from the National,
Climate Data Center show that
the Atlantic Ocean has warm
and cold temperature cycles that
typically last several decades.
The last previous warm phase
occurred from the middle 1920s
through the 1960s, when South
Florida also experienced very

Special to Independent Newspapers of Florida/
South Florida Water Management District
This graph shows that the number of hurricanes, category
3, 4, and 5 has increased when the water in the tropical
Atlantic Ocean is warmer. We are currently in a warm
phase, but the water in the tropical Atlantic is even warmer
than expected.


wet conditions. This is verified
in the ring patterns in the cut
cross-sections of old trees also.
By studying the tree-ring pat-
terns and information about the
climate in the past, scientists
know that the warm and cold
cycles are a regular part of the
global climate. At this time,
however, the tropical Atlantic
Ocean is even warmer than
would be expected in this cycle.
According to the scientists, it is
not known if this is due to global
warming or another natural vari-
able.
The effect of the warm/cold
cycles on Lake Okeechobee is
also shown by history. Histori-
cally, during warm phases,
inflow into the lake can be dou-
ble the inflow of cold periods.
The National Climate Data


Center's 111-year period of
record that begins in 1895
shows that the Florida statewide
wet season rainfall from 2001 to
2004 was the largest rainfall of
any other similar four-year peri-
od. Only during the middle of
the 20th century did any other
four-year period. August 2004 to
July 2005 was the wettest period
on record. Scientists at SFWMD
will be monitoring both the cli-
matic and conditions of the
watershed on a weekly basis to
be aware of the current outlook.
"Though seasonal climatic
forecasts may have significant
uncertainties, the water man-
agers need to take actions in
advance when climatic outlooks
indicate a risk of extremely wet
conditions," said Dr. Obeysek-
era.


Prepping for the storm: Taking no chances

Residents in Clewiston weren't going to risk the unpredictability of Hurricane Wilma and
started boarding up days before the storm's arrival.


Hendry Regional Medical Center began making emergency preparations days before
Hurricane Wilma was scheduled to arrive.

Federal aid available for Florida hurricane victims


WASHINGTON The head of
the U.S. Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA)
announced Monday that federal
disaster aid has been made avail-
able for Florida to help people
and community's recovery efforts
in the area struck by Hurricane
Wilma beginning on Oct. 23,
2005, and continuing.
i Acting Director of FEMA R.
David Paulison, said the assis-
tance was authorized under a
major disaster declaration issued
for the state by President Bush,
and designated the following
counties eligible for aid to stricken
residents and business owners:
Collier, Lee and Monroe Counties.
The assistance, to be coordi-
nated by FEMA, can include
grants to help pay for temporary
housing, home repairs and other
serious disaster-related expenses.
Low-interest loans from the U.S.
Small Business Administration
also will be available to cover resi-
dential and business losses not
fully compensated by insurance.
Additionally, Mr. Paulison said
federal funds will be provided for
the state and affected local gov-
ernments and certain private non-
profit communities to pay 75 per-
cent of the eligible costs for
restoring damaged facilities in the
counties of Brevard, Broward,
Charlotte, Collier, DeSoto, Glades,
Hardee, Hendry, Highlands, Indi-
an River, Lee, Martin, Miami-
Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee,
Osceola, Palm Beach, Polk,, St.


Lucie, and Sarasota.
For a period of up to 72 hours,
assistance for debris removal and
emergency protective measures,
including direct Federal assis-
tance, will be provided at 100 per-
cent of the total eligible costs.
Federal funding is also available
on a cost-sharing basis for hazard
mitigation measures statewide.
Mr. Paulison indicated that
more counties and additional
forms of assistance may be desig-
nated after assessments are fully
completed in the affected areas.
He named Justin DeMello as the
Federal Coordinating Officer for
Federal recovery operations in the
affected areas.
Mr. DeMello said those who
sustained losses in the counties
designated for aid to affected resi-
dents and business owners can
begin the disaster application
process tomorrow by registering
online at http://www.fema.gov or
by calling 1-800-621-FEMA

for the hearing and speech
impaired. The toll-free telephone
numbers will operate 24 hours a
day, seven days a week until fur-
ther notice.
FEMA prepares the nation for
all hazards and manages federal
response and recovery efforts fol-
lowing any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitigation
activities, trains first responders,
works with state and local emer-
gency managers, and manages
the National Flood Insurance Pro-
gram and the U.S. Fire Adminis-


tration. FEMA became part of the
U.S. Department of Homeland

Use care when trimming damaged trees


By MaiyAnn Morris

If the storm has left broken trees
or large branches in your yard,
other than dragging the pieces to
the roadside for pickup, here's the
best way to deal with the mess.
Broken trees can be sawed into
pieces and stacked for firewood or
placed at the roadside edge of the
property for pick up. Broken or
hanging branches can be pruned
off. Like anything else, there is a
right way to do this.
Cut as illustrated, close to the
trunk, on a slant and leave the "col-
lar" as shown. If it's a long, heavy
branch, cut it off in pieces, starting
at the small end. Before you cut,
look to see where the tree or


branch will fall. Oak wood, for
instance is very heavy, and even
small pieces can cause injury, dam-
age or death.
Hatchets, machetes or other
hacking tools leave an ugly, dis-
ease-prone stub. Use a chain saw,
if you know how to use one. If you
have purchased a new chain saw,
practice on something on the
ground before trying to use one up
over your head. Read the direc-
tions. Think before you cut. You
don't want to become a post-hurri-
cane injury statistic. You can also
use a hand saw. It takes longer, but
it will do the job.
Dan Culbert, Extension Agent,
Horticulture, for Okeechobee
County, advises "Stand away off


with a pencil or other such object.
in your hand. Hold the pencil (or
whatever you have chosen)
upright at arms length and sight
along its length the height of the
overhanging tree or branch. Move
the top of the pencil right and left to
see where the tree (or branch)
might possibly fall to minimize the
chances of damage."
Don't pile branches in ditches
or on the road pavement. Branches
will slow the drainage of storm
water and collect trash that can
block the ditch completely.
Branches on road pavement can
cause an accident and slow the
progress of fire trucks, ambulances
and other emergency vehicles.
Remember, when working in


the heat, pace yourself, take your
time and drink 2 to 4 glasses of
water every HOUR. If you wait until
you're thirsty, you are already dehy-
drated. Being dehydrated puts you
at risk for heat stroke, heat exhaus-
tion and other heat-related illness-
es. Take frequent "cool-off" breaks
while you work. Do not work in the
mid-day heat. Work early, work late
and use mid-day for a siesta!
Use insect repellent contain-
ing DEET. Apply lightly to both
clothing and exposed skin.

was provided by the Okee-
chobee County Extension Office
and Okeechobee County and
University of Florida IFAS.


Special to INI/ Edward F. Gilman/IFAS
Remove all dead or damaged wood without cutting into the
"collar" of the branch, close to the trunk of the tree. Cutting
into the collar amounts to cutting into the trunk.
