BELLE GLADE Her fortune is
in her soil. It's a statement of fact
for the agricultural communities in
the Glades, and it's a source of
pride. The Southwest part of the
country refers to "Black Gold" as
oil, but the agricultural community
in South Florida has the same
expression for its valued soil.
The rich, black soil of the
Glades is the envy of the agricultur-
al world. To be from the "muck" is
to be from the Glades and with no
pun intended, you just don't
"muck" around with folks around


here. But there is more to the story
than the eye can see and while no
one would trade this area's most
treasured belonging, there is cau-
tion in the air or in this case -
in the ground.
Most farmers will tell you that
the better the soil, the better off
you will be if there is no direct con-
tact between the soil and your skin
for prolonged periods of time. It's a
simple matter of science that not
all good things are good for you-
and the rich, organic matter that
makes up the Black Gold of the


Glades is no cili. ,,i But while
the "muck" does not represent an
immediate health hazard to
humans, who were given the gifts
of logic and reason, or at least
some humans, our four-legged
friends were not.
Our animal companions, while
sometimes smarter than some
humnans, do not possess the ability
of reason and through them, cau-
tion should be taken to maintain
the health of our furry friends, in
order to possibly maintain the
health of our two-legged loved


ones.
Is there scientific evidence that
Belle Glade's most prized posses-
sion is not necessarily a good
thing? Not to the extent that the
Center for Disease Control (CDC)
would throw up a red flag for the
Glades, but the CDC does keep a
wary eye that is forever cast this
way. But there are other lesser
known signs that should bring
about some concern and it all goes
back to those family members
who don 't possess the ability to
speak, but can tell quite a story if


Doggie duty: Our K-9 protectors


INI/Mark Young
For love of duty, Missy, a bloodhound/golden retriever, awaits a command from her handler, Officer King Bell, GEO's
K-9 trainer. Missy is one of four dogs who helps to ensure that GEO's inmates stay where they are supposed to stay.


I.




A tracking machine, this purebred bloodhound, called Rambo is a level above the rest when it comes to tracking a
potential escaped inmate through the tough terrains of the Glades. Rambo is a prison dog at GEO's South Bay facility.


Man's best friends,


man's best protectors


By Mark Young
SOUTH BAY Less promi-
nently displayed than the ominous
backdrop of Glades Correctional
Institution in Belle Glade, is South
Bay's GEO prison facility, opened
in 1997, and tucked away amidst
cane fields on Hwy. 27 heading
south towards Miami.
Within its walls are men that
are given choices and opportuni-
ties to rehabilitate or face the con-
sequences of future choices once
they are released. While walled
buildings, security locks, cameras,
chain link fencing, razor wire, and
armed, as well as unarmed guards
keep these prisoners where they
are supposed to be, the facility has
another weapon at their disposal.
To meet these protectors of the
public is to face hardy conse-
quences indeed, as they will likely
slobber all over you and try to
knock you down in an attempt to


play with them. But to the inmate
with intentions of escaping back
into the public as desperate fugi-
tives, these K-9 protectors are their
worst nightmare.
GEO's four-legged correctional
officers will display their willing-
ness to serve mankind with a level
of exuberance that will rarely be
found in their human counterparts
- they simply love to do their job.
But their "job" doesn't always
entail the atypical southern swamp
Hollywood classic like Cool Hand
Luke, starring Paul Newman,
although they face a similar task.
These GEO K-9s have multiple
responsibilities, but all are devoted
to making the Glades area safer for
the community they rarely see.
There is Rambo, the facility's star
tracker a purebred bloodhound
- a tracking machine. Rambo is
the only male in the group of K-9s,

you pay attention to the details.
One of the CDC's primary con-
cerns these days relate to diseases
that jump from animals to
humans, otherwise termed
Zoonotic diseases. A primary
example of this would be the
Avian Flu, or Bird Flu, which has
proved to be fatal. Avian Flu is just
one example of a growing list of
deadly diseases that first infect our
animals and then evolves to infect
humans and usually has a stagger-

FLW



anglers



fishing

By Mark Young
CLEWISTON.- Lake Okee-
chobee is currently being con-
verged upon by some of the best
anglers in the world, as the 2006
Wal-Mart FLW season kicks off at
its annual season opener on the
Big "0".
More than 200 professional
anglers from all over the United
States, with anglers also repre-
senting Canada and Japan have
begun the yearlong journey that
will eventually win one steadfast
angler the coveted title of FLW
Champion. The tournament, in-all;::-
NI* i\ill feature some 400 anglers with
200 pros and 200 co-anglers who
compete against one another, but
side by sidewith the pros.
Lake Okeechobee has always
been considered one of, if not the
best bass fisheries in the country.
Its abundance of large fish, chal-
lenging .conditions, and ever
changing its foundation, the lake
draws professional and amateur
tournaments from all over the
country. Professional anglers

know that each time they return to
.Lake Okeechobee, they face a
brand new lake.
Anglers have had to deal with a
variety of conditions since the
FLW tournament began in 1996,
with its initial kick off on the big
lake, although the FLW concept
began in 1979 and expanded
under various names, some of
which continue to exist. Last
year's four hurricanes impacted
the lake by dropping an almost
continuous supply of heavy rains
and winds that stirred the big lake
into a giant bowl of coffee-like
water.
Pros converged on the little
areas of clean water knowing that
is where the fish would also want
to be and areas like the Monkey
Box, which held its clarity through
the storms saw a regular fish-fest.

Jan. is cervical healtI


awareness month


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
and the American Cancer Soci-
ety team up in January to raise
awareness about cervical
health. The main goal is to reach
out to unscreened population
groups in Florida.
Unscreened women fall in
several categories: The unin-
sured, ethnic minorities and the
poor, particularly those in rural
areas. Regular check-ups may
reduce the risk of cervical can-
cer later in life. It is highly cur-
able if caught early.
"Cervical Health Awareness
Month is not simply about statis-
tics. It is about encouraging
women to be responsible for
their health and to visit their doc-
tors regularly," said DOH Secre-
tary M. Rony FranCois, M.D.,
M.S.P.H., Ph.D. "We are proud to
have programs such as the
department's Florida Breast and
Cervical Cancer Program that
helps older, uninsured, or poor
women maintain cervical
health. We offer assistance that
leads to healthier, happier lives."
The Breast and Cervical Can-
cer Program began in 1994 and
has helped over 27,000 women
receive Pap tests. The U.S. Pre-
ventive Services Task Force rec-
ommends that women begin
having regular Pap tests and
pelvic exams at age 21, or within
three years of the first time they
have sexual intercourse. Nation-
al guidelines recommend that
after, a woman should have a
Pap test each year for three years
in a row. If those test results are
negative, she then needs a Pap
test only every two-three years.
Women should discuss the

appropriate schedule with their
health care provider.
-Important facts about cervi-
cal cancer include:
Any woman who has a
cervix can get cervical cancer,
especially if she or her sexual
partner has had multiple sex
partners.
Most often, cervical cancer
develops in women age 40 or
older.
Abnormal cells in the
cervix and cervical cancer don't
always cause symptoms, espe-
cially at firsi That's \vhry getting
tested for cer\lcal cancer is
important, even if there are no
symptoms.
When it is found early and
treated, cervical cancer is highly
curable.
Most deaths from cervical
cancer could be avoided if
women had regular checkups
with the pap test.
Experts agree that infection
with certain strains .of the
human papilloma virus, which is
sexually transmitted, is one of
the strongest risk factors for cer-
vical cancer.

How does God get His kicks now?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The title is frivolous, but this
message could change some-
body's life. -low does God get
His kicks? What is it that gives
God the most pleasure? The
answer is, He gets the most
pleasure from taking something
that the world perceives as
worthless and giving it value.
There's a story about a
kindergarten teacher who wrote
a song about popcorn. She had
her class crouch down on the
floor as they sang it. At the
appropriate point in the song, all
the children would "pop up."
The teacher had them "pop-
ping" all over the classroom.
One day, during the popcorn
song, the teacher noticed that
one little boy remained
crouched down when all the
other children popped up. She
went over to him and asked if he
was okay, and why he wasn't
popping up like the other chil-
dren. The little boy replied, "I'm
burning on the bottom of the
pan."


Some of us can relate. If not
us, then someone we know feels
like they are burning on the bot-
tom of the pan. There are burnt
kernel feelings, feelings of
worthlessness or despair.
Think on this: God sent His
Son into this world in our behalf.
Therefore, how can we be
worthless? God sees us as peo-
ple of infinite worth, and that's
the way we all need to see our-
selves. If we would place the
same value on our lives that God

places on them, our lives would
be radically changed. If we
would see our possibilities as
clearly as we see our problems,
we would turn the world upside
down.
How we view ourselves
makes all the difference in the
world. Hockey great Wayne
Gretzky was interviewed before
the second game of a playoff
series. His team had played
poorly and lost the first game.
He was asked whether his coach
had shown the players their mis-
takes on video. Gretzky said that
rather than showing them a
video of their mistakes, their


coach showed highlights of
them performing well.
Why reinforce negative
images? They needed to see
themselves as they could be, not
as they had been. The case in
point: Gretzky's team won the
second game and subsequently
took the Stanley Cup.
I believe that many of us
could benefit immensely from
standing in front of a mirror
each morning and saying to our-
selves, "I am a person of
immense value. Jesus Christ
gave His life in my behalf. I can
do all things through Jesus
Christ who strengthens me.
There is nothing that will arise
today that I cannot handle with
His help." Your life will be
changed if you can say this and
believe it.
One final thought. A number
of years ago there was a com-
mercial that showed a Mercedes
crashing into a concrete wall
during a safety test. An engineer
checks out the damage, which is
minimal. Afterwards, a reporter
asks the engineer about Mer-
cedes' energy absorbing car


body and why Mercedes doesn't
enforce their patent on the
design, which evidently had
been copied by several other
companies because of its suc-
cess.
The engineer replies matter-
of-factly, "Because some things
in life are too important not to
share."
There are some things in life
that are too important not to
share. This is one of them. If God
gets so much pleasure from
bringing value to that which is
considered worthless in our
lives, then why not share this
blessing by helping other people
turn around their lives as well.
How does God get His kicks?
It happens whenever any person
in whatever situation comes to
discover his or her true worth as
a child of God.
Why not give God a great
time today? Why don't we claim
or reclaim Jesus Christ as Lord
of our lives and make a new start
with Him? Why not look around
and find others that we can
encourage along the same path?


Eutychus and falling to sleep in church?


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone gave me a list of
things to say on the way out of
church to the preacher if he has
been long-winded. The list
included phrases such as "you
always find something to fill up
the time, don't you" or" did you
know that there are 176 window
panes in the church?" or when a
youngster told the minister "the
sermon was awful!" his mother
said, "don't listen to him, he only
says what other people say!"
Usually, the congregation is at
the mercy of the preacher and
there is an unwritten rule that he
may wax eloquent at length. He
does so, however, at his own
risk. When one visiting preacher
asked, "How long should I
preach?" he was told "you can
preach as long as you want to,
we're out of here in 15 minutes!"
The bible has something to
say about long-winded preach-
ers none other than Paul him-
self. It seems he was visiting


Troas for seven days and as they
gathered to have communion,
Paul began to preach. He intend-
ed to depart the next day and "he
prolonged his speech until mid-
night (Act 20:7)" As the account
goes, "a young man named
Euthchus was sitting in the win-
dow. He sank into a deep sleep
as Paul talked longer, and being
overcome by sleep, he fell down
from the third story and was
taken up dead (v.9)."
Paul went down and bent
over him, embraced him and
announced that there was life in
him. After the celebration of the
communion service, Acts tells
us, "And they took the lad away
alive. And were not little com-
forted."
The message is clear enough:
Sermons can kill! In reality,
we're fortunate with our church-
es on the first floor and air condi-
tioning to keep people inside
with the windows closed. There
is a warning though for the
preachers don't get carried
away.
I read a commentary on the


children's hit TV show, "Sesame
Street" and learned that the for-
mat was changed every few min-
utes to keep short attention
spans. Many times nevertheless
it must be recognized that the
preacher's not a stand-up enter-
tainer. There are times when
there is no catchy way to present
a message or a talk about some-
thing that is a topic for that Sun-
day.
One young boy assisting me
at the altar one Sunday told me,
"I don't want to be here my
mother made me come!" I
looked at him for a minute and
said, "What makes you think I
want to be here every Sunday
either? I'm here and you're here
because that's where we're sup-
posed to be, not because we feel
like it!" He looked at me for a
second, and then got back to his
appointed task with something
to think about a sermon is
one sentence that apparently
made the point.
There is a responsibility when
one has a captive audience to be
respectful of the structure. If it


can't be said succinctly and to
the point, the preacher may be
putting people to sleep! Even if
they don't fall out of windows,
they might not want to come
back, and if one is attempting to
corrvey God's message, they're
doing him a real disservice.
Anyone can string bible vers-
es together and cite platitudes,
but such a preacher runs the risk
of putting people to sleep. One
definition of a sermon that stuck
with me was that it was a bridge
between an ever-changing
world and fixed, eternal truth -
not sociology or pop science,
but what God might say about
what is going on here and now.
With the state of the world,
there is always something worth
saying. It should be said and
then serve as a springboard for
us to respond in our prayers and
actions as well as our words.
One of my colleagues asks his
listeners to give him grade, but
more importantly, feedback so
that he can be self-correcting.
He's a good preacher, too.


Letters to the Editor


Missing the point
To the editor:
There is an important point
missing from the current debate
over what to do with polluted
Lake Okeechobee water. Flood-
ing the fields in the Everglades
Agricultural Area (EAA), in addi-
tion to being nearly impossible
without also flooding towns,
highways, hospitals and other
public facilities, would destroy
the Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan (CERP) and
therefore kill the Everglades.
That is too high a price to pay for
a minor Band-Aid for the
Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie
Rivers, which can only be per-
manently restored by going for-
ward with the balance of the
CERP program.
If people want to "save" the
rivers from discharges of dirty
water from the Lake, they
should focus on saving CERP. It
is unrealistic to flood the EAA for
many reasons. One is because
the system has been changed so
much that the farm land could
hold only a fraction of the water
being released into the estuar-
ies, for one thing, and once
they're flooded the problem
would be right back where it
started. And it's unrealistic
because that farmland does not
belong to the suburban commu-
nities that filled in their own wet-
lands and now want to flood
someone else's, property in
order to enhance their own.
And it's further unrealistic
because polluted water sent
south onto farms would keep
going south and kill the Ever-
glades, which is now finally
recovering because of the years
of effort and millions of dollars
invested by the public-private
partnership of farmers, state and
federal governments working
together for restoration.
It's also true that farmer and
cattle ranching north of the Lake
is a major contributor of the
nutrients causing the problems
in the lake and estuaries. Sugar
farmers reduced the phospho-
rus load in their runoff years
ago, and most of their water
drains south. Back pumping to
the Lake is less than three per-
cent of the Lake's inflow. Most of
the phosphorus now embedded
in the Lake's dirty mud sediment
came from the north, and most
of the phosphorus still flowing
into the Lake comes from the
same direction. That's why the
state-federal plans to restore the
Everglades-Lake Okeechobee-
Kissimmee River ecosystem
include major water storage and

filtering systems north of the
Lake.
South of the lake, sugar farm-
ers have reduced the phospho-
rus content of water at their own
expense, and on their own land,
in addition to paying a special
tax to build the large Storm
water Treatment Areas that now
are filtering water from coastal
communities as well as from the
farming area. This partnership
with public agencies is what has
rescued the Everglades and
what underlies the $10 billion-
plus Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Project adopted by
Congress.

To the good people
of Pahokee
To the editor:
Ever since your city manager
of more than 10 years left the
city under the weight of written
criticisms about his job perform-
ance as issued by Mayor JP Sass-
er, your city has been in a nose-
dive financially, environmentally,
internally and politically. Let us
review the following facts. The
longtime city manager is ousted
out of office, the police scandal
happens, a tenured police chief
resigns, newly hired City Manag-
er Jim Smith is hired and abrupt-
ly quits after completing nearly
60 days on the job, I was hired as
your city manager and fired after
almost 90 days under a hail of
public criticism, Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office Deputies
leave Pahokee and a new police
chief is hired. Now he is gone
too and the city continues to get
bad press, which bring, in my
view, discredit upon all of you.
So I ask you. Is Pahokee des-
tined to eventual and complete
ruin, or is there something else
at play here?
Now that a few years have
past since I last stepped foot in
Pahokee, I'd like you all to know
that when I was your city man-
ager I was given direct orders by
each of the commission mem-
bers, specifically Sasser, Biggs,


Crawford and Branch (not
McEntyre), to "do whatever it
takes" to clean up the city of
crime, blight and to collect past
due utility bills or pull the water
meters on those who don't pay.
My actions back then seemed
confrontational, insensitive and
racially motivated to all of you,
but now that you know the
"back-story" perhaps you'll
think of me in a different light.
For example, the removal of the
basketball backboards was
approved right then and there at
the MLK Memorial Park by each
of the four commissioners who
appeared at the park the morn-
| -y-E_, _1 --_ U j .J B ..p


ing after the park w trished:
The commission, .facing an
upcoming election, never fessed
up and admitted to you their
involvement in the decision to
remove the backboards. They let
me take the fall for it and that is
why I never did apologize. Then
Mayor Sasser stood silent for too
many days before finally admit-
ting it was he who had made a
harsh statement to the press that
was attributed to me. These are
the true and only facts behind
my actions and the past actions
of the commission as well. In my
opinion, we were all duped and
you lost me, a good city manag-
er that truly cared about every-
one in the city regardless of their
color, age, financial status or
religious background. It is my'
fondest hope however, that P'O-
keeans rise to the upcoming
challenges to do whatever is
necessary in order to restore
Pahokee's long legacy as a vital
part of Palm Beach County.

2005 fatality count stands at 27


Hendry County sustained its
26th fatality for 2005 Wednesday,
Dec. 28. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol, 54-year-old Debo-
rah Davis Haywood of Clewiston
died after a two-car crash at Birch-
wood Parkway and E. Cowboy
Way. The crash occurred at 7:25
a.m. in heavy fog conditions.
FHP reports that Ms. Haywood
was southbound on Birchwood
Parkway and failed to stop for the
posted stop sign at the intersection.
Her 2005 Dodge Stratos entered the
intersection where it was struck on


the left side by a 1998 Toyota 4-Run-
ner driven by Reina DelCarmen
Castellon, 32, of LaBelle. Both vehi-
cles rotated counterclockwise,
then traveled onto the southwest
corner of the intersection. Ms. Hay-
wood's vehicle then struck a tele-
phone junction box and the Castel-
lon vehicle overturned onto its right
side before up-righting itself. Both
vehicles came to a final rest on the
south shoulder of E. Cowboy Way.
Ms. Castellon, 32, and a passen-
ger, 20-year-old Teresa Lemus of
the same address, both suffered


minor injuries and were transport-
ed to LeHigh Regional Hospital.
As of Dec. 28, Hendry experi-
enced 22 fatal crashes, resulting in
27 fatalities.
As throughout the state, Hendry
County has experienced a signifi-
cant increase in traffic fatalities in
the last couple years. In 2000,
Hendry had 11 road fatalities (four
of them alcohol related); in 2001
that number jumped to 19 (11 alco-
hol related); in 2002 it was 16 (nine
alcohol related); in 2003 it was 13
(five alcohol related); and in 2004,


26 people lost their lives on
Hendry's roads (eight alcohol relat-
ed), according to Florida Depart-
ment of Highway Safety and Motor
Vehicle statistics.
Statistics also show that,
statewide, careless driving is, over-
all, the biggest factor in crashes on
Florida roads, at just over 25 per-
cent. Other top causes include fail-
ure to yield right-of-way (over 13
percent) and driving under the
influence alcohol (over 10 per-
cent).

according to officials from the
Department of Homeland Securi-
ty's Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) and Florida's
State Emergency Response Team
(SERT).
Common reasons for denial
include adequate insurance .cover-
age; damage to a secondary home,
not a primary residence; duplicate
applications made from the same
address; and, inability to prove
occupancy or ownership.
Sometimes a denial simply
means that more information is
needed before the analysis can be
completed. Applicants who are
denied housing and other needs
assistance under FEMA's Individu-
als and Households Program (IHP)
have 60 days from the date of their
determination letter to appeal the
decision. All appeals must be sub-


mitted in writing.
In their appeal letters, applicants
should explain in writing why they
think the decision about the
amount or type of assistance they
received is not correct. They should
provide specific examples, such as
areas electrical, plumbing,
floors, walls, ceilings, etc. they
feel were not addressed in the
inspection process. The applicant,
or someone who represents them
or their household, should sign the
letter. If the person writing the letter
is not a member of the household,
there must be a signed statement
saying that the writer may act on
the applicant's behalf.
Appeal letters should include
the applicant's FEMA registration
number and the disaster number
(shown at the top of the decision
letter Wilma's disaster number
is 1609). It is important to have
appeal letters postmarked within
60 days of the date on the decision
letter. It is also important to date the
appeal letter, which should be


mailed to the following address:
FEMA Individuals & House-
holds Program
National Processing Service
Center
P.O. Box 10055
Hyattsville, MD 20782-7055
Letters can also be faxed to 800-
827-8112 (Attention: FEMA Indi-
viduals & Households Program).
To register for or ask questions
about FEMA assistance, residents
should call FEMA at 1-800-621-
FEMA (3362) or TTY 1-800-462-
7585 for the speech- and hearing-
impaired. The deadline to apply for
disaster assistance is Jan. 19, 2006.
Appealing
insurance-related
denials
While the law forbids federal
payment for losses covered by
insurance, financial aid may be
provided for losses not covered,
and information in the settlement


letter from the insurance company
can help obtain this aid from
FEMA, if the individual is eligible.
If an applicant is still waiting for
an insurance settlement-- but has
received a letter from FEMA stating
that a claim for federal assistance
has been denied because of insur-
ance coverage he or she should
contact FEMA and request a "delay
of settlement" letter. A completed
copy of the letter should be mailed
back to FEMA at the above address
so the agency is aware that the
claims process is still ongoing.
If an applicant does receive an
insurance settlement and also
receives a letter from FEMA stating
that a claim for federal assistance
has been denied because of insur-
ance coverage but feels the insur-
ance settlement was not sufficient
- the applicant can re-contact
FEMA and let them know of the sit-
uation. Insurance cases can be
appealed to FEMA up to 12 months
from an applicant's registration
date.

Burson gift puts United Way


LABELLE The United Way of
Hendry and Glades Counties has
gotten a big boost this year through
a new donor. Fred Burson has per-
sonally donated $10,000 to the
2005-2006 campaign. There is still a
lot of work to do though, to achieve
the community goal of$162,000.
"Everyone in our area is posi-
tively affected by United Way, and
there is still a shortfall of approxi-
mately $30,000 to get to the goal of
$162,000," said Mr. Burson. More
than 21,000 local residents were
helped by United Way agencies last
year in Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties.
Paul Martin, regional general
manager for the Bonita Bay Group,
is serving his fourth year as the vol-
unteer campaign chair for the Unit-
ed Way of Hendry and Glades
Counties.
"There's such a need in the
community and as leaders here
locally, we want to give back to
help make the community a better
place to live for all," he said.
The employees of Hendry
County School District have helped
the United Way campaign get off to
a great start by contributing over
$21,000. Other campaigns that are
under way include Hilliard Broth-
ers, Childcare of SouthWest Flori-
da, Family Eye Care, Johnson Engi-

2006 United Way Hendry/Glades
fundraising campaign. These agen-
cies serve a diverse range of need in
the community, including nurtur-
ing youth and children, strengthen-
ing families, improving health and
independence for the sick and eld-
erly, providing a safety net for peo-
ple in crisis, and helping the dis-
abled reach their potential.
Extensive volunteer involve-
ment allows the United Way to
keep fundraising costs extremely
low, and community volunteers
evaluate agency performance and
thoroughly study agency budgets
and programs to make sure United
Way dollars are spent efficiently
and with impact. All the money
raised through the United Way of
Hendry and Glades County Cam-

What's your favorite Girl Scout cookie?


People come in all different
shapes and sizes. No two are
exactly alike. Which is why when
you ask a person, "What is your
favorite Girl Scout cookie?"
chances are you will discover
their tastes are just as unique as
the individual. And this year, a
new cookie will be introduced,
making the decision even harder.
Cartwheels, reduced fat, bite-
sized cinnamon oatmeal cook-
ies, are making their debut with
the rest of the old favorites: Thin
Mints, Peanut Butter Sandwich,


Shortbread, Caramel deLites,
Peanut Butter Patties, Reduced
Fat Lemon Pastry Cremes, and
Thank A-Lot (formerly known as
Animal Treasures).
The Girl Scout rookiee Sale is
the most anticipated and popular
activity within tlie Girl Scout fam-
ily and the community that sup-
ports them. However, the cookie
sale does more that just satisfy a
sweet tooth. It provides incredi-
ble opportunities for Girl Scouts
to acquire real-life business and
financial skills. Their creativity


and imaginations are tapped as
they explore and learn more
about marketing and advertising,
and realize the satisfaction that
comes when a shared goal is
reached.
"Girl Scouts in our area are
even more excited about the
cookie sale this year," said
Denise Valz, chief executive offi-
cer for Girl Scouts of Palm Glades
Council. "By introducing the new
cookie, people will be curious
and may buy a box, just to try it,
along with their standard


favorite." And quite possibly, a
new favorite cookie will be born.
Girl Scouts builds girls of
courage, confidence and charac-
ter who make the world a better
place. Girl Scouts of Palm Glades
Council, Inc., a United Way
agency, serves almost 9,000 Girl
Scouts in Palm Beach, Martin, St.
Lucie, Indian River, Okeechobee,
Glades and Hendry Counties.
Look for your local Girl Scouts
to begin their cookie campaign
soon.

Cyber Crime unit arrests man on child pornography charges


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
the arrest of a Clay County man on
child pornography charges. Investi-
gators from the Attorney General's
Cyber Crime Unit arrested Kyle
Wade Rose, 21, after executing a
search warrant on his apartment
and seizing multiple images of
child pornography from his home
computer. The Special Victims Unit
of the Clay County Sheriff's Office
assisted with the execution of the
Search warrant and the arrest.
The search warrant and arrest
comprised the final stage of a six-
week undercover online investiga-
tion conducted by the Cyber Crime
Unit. During the execution of the
search warrant, two computers
were seized and will be submitted
to the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement for forensic examina-
tion. Investigators believe Rose
Used his home computer to trans-
mit numerous images of child
pornography over the Internet.
' "Acivilized society is repulsed by
the exploitation of a child," said
Crist. "The Cyber Crime Unit was
established to help law enforce-
ment use the latest resources and
techniques to identify, arrest, and
prosecute those who would victim-
ize our vulnerable citizens."
SThe Cyber Crime Unit was
established recently by the attorney
general in order to focus on the
growing problem of crimes com-
mitted via the Internet, particularly
against children. Cyber Crime
investigators conduct covert inves-
tigations online and target individu-
als who prey on children as well as
those who pollute the Internet with
images of child pornography. This
unit allows law enforcement and
prosecutors to focus on an area
that poses a grave danger to chil-
dren, but can be too technically
Complex and ever changing for
some local law enforcement agen-
cies to emphasize. The unit is sup-
ported in part by the federally fund-
ed Internet Crimes Against
Children task force and is a mem-


ber of the North Florida Internet
Crimes Against Children (ICAC)
Task Force.
The case against Rose will be
prosecuted jointly by the Fourth Cir-
cuit State Attorney's Office and the
Attorney General's Office. Rose is
officially charged with one count of
promoting the sexual performance
of a child, although more charges
may be added at a later time. Rose
faces a maximum prison sentence
of 15 years for each image that was
transmitted. He is currently being
held. in the Clay County Jail.
A study by the Crimes Against
Children Research Center several
years ago indicated that at least 24
million children between the ages

of 10 and 17 use the Internet regu-
larly. One out of every five of these
children received a sexual solicita-
tion, one in every four received
unwanted pictures of naked peo-
ple or people having sex, one in
every 17 was threatened or
harassed and one in every 33
received an aggressive sexual solic-
itation asking the recipient to meet,
phone or accept gifts.
The Cyber Crime Unit's mission'
statement directs it to protect chil-
dren from computer-facilitated sex-
ual exploitation by working coop-
eratively on a statewide basis with
law enforcement and prosecution
agencies to provide resources and
expertise, while preventing the


I


spread of these crimes through
education and community aware-
ness.
In addition to the Cyber Crime
Unit, the attorney general has taken
several steps to protect Florida's
children during the past year.
1 In May, Crist and Florida
Department of Law Enforcement
Commissioner Guy Tunnell, in con-
junction with Pitney-Bowes,
announced an enhanced state
Web site that makes it easier to
keep track of sexual offenders and
predators in Florida.
1 A new publication titled "Safe
Steps" was produced for the pur-
pose of educating parents on ways
to protect their young children and


alert them to issues involving
teenagers. The publication was
produced in conjunction with the
National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children.
1 A series of one-hour courses
called "Escape School," covering
child safety for both children and
parents, was presented at 25 loca-
tions around the state.
The attorney general also suc-


cessfully fought for the constitu-
tionality of the Florida Sexual
Predators Act Florida's ver-
sion of "Megan's Law," -which
is the act that requires sexual
predators to register once they
are released from prison. The
Florida Supreme Court agreed
with the arguments put forth by
the Attorney General's Office of
the Solicitor General.

Great Florida Birding Trail opens for the birders


After years of anticipation, the
Great Florida Birding Trail is
complete.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) unveiled the final seg-
ment of the trail Jan. 14 at


Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary in
Naples.
*Both novice and expert bird
watchers will enjoy the 116
prime birding sites in the South
Section, which includes
Broward, Charlotte, Collier, De


Soto, Glades, Hendry, Lee, Mar-
tin, Miami-Dade, Monroe, Palm
Beach and Sarasota Counties.
The 2,000-mile trail is a collec-
tion of 446 of Florida's premier
bird-watching sites. The South
Section, which spans 12 counties


and .promises remarkable
glimpses of Florida's wildlife, is
the fourth and final leg of the trail.
Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary
was selected as one of nine
"gateway sites" statewide
because of its extensive services


for visitors, which include a 2.25-
mile boardwalk through the
largest remaining virgin cypress
forest in North America, the
state-of-the-art Blair Audubon
Center, a variety of educational
activities, and more than 200


species of birds. The Arthur R.
Marshall Loxahatchee National
Wildlife Refuge in Palm Beach
County is also a gateway site for
the South Section.

Moderation: Even with Girl Scout cookies is recommended


What's in a name? People who
love Girl Scout cookies don't seem
to mind what they call them as
long as they taste the same. But I
don't think they're fooled by name
changes that attempt to make the
cookies sound less fattening.
The most popular Girl Scout
cookies, Thin Mints, were originally
marketed as "Chocolate Mint"
cookies.
Caramel deLites, a sweet mix of
caramel, chocolate and coconut,
were originally known as
"Samoas."
Shortbread cookies were origi-
nally known as "Butter Shorties,"
and spent a few years as "Trefoils."
These new names may be an
attempt to make the cookies sound
less fattening, so read the labels
and remember the importance of
moderation.
One change includes an educa-


A
Healthier
Life

with Katrina Elsken
tional bonus. "Thanks-A-Lot"
cookies are last year's "Animal
Treasures" with a new round
shape. Each cookie has the word
"thank you" in different languages.
So you can learn how to say "thank
you" in French, Italian or Spanish
while enjoying a chocolate-coated
shortbread cookie.
Every few years, the Scouts add
a new cookie to the mix. This
year's new cookies, "Cartwheels,"


are crunchy, bite-sized, reduced-fat
oatmeal cookies.
The Scouts also sometimes
"retire" cookies that have not been
selling well.
Sold only once a year, Girl Scout
Cookies are considered by many
people to be a special treat to be
savored. They are both a comfort
food and a tradition.
Before ripping open a box, take
a few minutes to consider the nutri-
tional facts. And be sure to note the
"suggested serving size," because
once the box is open, it may be
hard to keep track of how many
Thin Mint cookies you consume.
One nice addition to the nutritional
information this year is the transfat
content. 'ransfats are fats such as
vegetable oil that have been chemi-
cally changed so that they have a
longer shelf life. Consuming too
many of these fats may increase the


chance of clogged arteries. Some
varieties of this year's Girl Scout
cookies have no transfat.
Thin Mints: Suggested serving
size is four cookies, with 160 calo-
ries, 22 g carbohydrate, 8g fat with
no transfat.
Shortbread: Suggested serving
size is four cookies, with 130 calo-
ries, 18g carbohydrate and 6g fat
with 1.5g transfat.
Caramel deLites: Suggested
serving size is two cookies, with
140 calories, 19g carbohydrate and
7g fate with no transfats.
Peanut Butter Patties: Suggest-
ed serving size is two cookies, with
150 calories, 16g carbohydrate and
8g fat with no transfat.
Reduced Fat Lemon Pastry
Cremes: Suggested serving size is
three cookies, with 130 calories,
22g carbohydrate, 4.5g fat with I g
transfat.


Thanks-A-Lot

Fishing
Continued From Page 1
Kelly Jordan ended up winning
the opening event and George
Cochran would go on to win the
2005 champion when the tourna-
ment wrapped up on Lake Hamil-
ton in Hot Springs, Arkansas.
This year's challenge will be
much of the same after Hurricane
Wilma took all of the water from
the north end of the lake and
shoved it south to create a massive
storm surge, shaking the lake
water up even more than last
year's storms combined. But
according to local FLW profes-
sional angler Scott Martin, it's not
as bad as last year.


"There are plenty of fish, but
there's so much new water that
weights may be down somewhat
this year," admitted Martin in an
interview with FLW.com. But Mar-
tin also said there are larger areas
of clear water this year, like Moon-
shine Bay, which Martin said has
38,000 square acres of clear water.
"There's no shortage of fish,"
he said, "but anglers will have to
plan their strategies ahead of
time." Martin, who has been test-
ing the waters by shiner fishing,
said he's been catching 25-30 fish
a day and predicts some crowding
during the tournament, but also
said the canal systems, which
offer better sight fishing opportu-
nities, will ease some of the pres-
sure off of the main lake for the
tournament.


Anglers are currently in the
second day of competition, as of
today. Competitors are fishing
out of Roland and MaryAnn Mar-
tin's Marina where the first two
days of weigh-ins will be held,
before operations move to the
Wal-Mart parking lot. Co-anglers
will conclude their tournament
on Friday and the top 10 anglers
from the professional division
will earn their way into a final day
of fishing on Saturday to deter-
mine this year's opening tourna-
ment champion.
As always, the weekend events
at Wal-Mart are packed with fami-
ly fun, with the annual Fun Zone
being set up for everyone to enjoy.
The FLW 2006 season will be
boasting a $7.6 million total pay-
out and is the richest tournament


in the sport of fishing. Anglers
who finish as low as 50th in any
given tournament will still see a
large payout. Total payouts per
tournament range from $900,000
to $1.25 million for the tourna-
ment's two open events and of
course, $500,000 for winning the
championship will be determined
this year on Logan Martin Lake in
Birmingham, Alabama.
Following this year's opening
tournament, the FLW series will
next fish on Lake Murray in
Columbus, South Carolina. The
series will also be featured on Fox
Sports Net. Snickers is this year's
sponsor of the Big "0" tourna-
ment. For more information on
this year's series, tournament
results, and angler profiles, visit

Dogs

but earns his "king of the castle"
honors by being the best tracker of
the four dogs.
According to C/O King Bell,
GEO's K-9 handler and trainer for
the past six years of his nine-year
career, Rambo is unmatched when
it comes to "nose to the ground"
work.
But far from being overlooked
are Rambo's three female counter-
parts who have specific jobs of
their own. There is Missy, a half
bloodhound, half golden retriever.
Missy had a very important job
when the GEO facility in South Bay
held several sexual predators with-
in its gates. Missy was directly
Strained to track these specific indi-
viduals, but fortunately was never
needed. Sexual offenders, for the
most part, are isolated in their own
-facility in Desoto County, but Missy
is still a first rate tracker.
Jenny, a brown Labrador, has a
nose for narcotics, as does Satin, a
shadowy mixed breed black
Labrador with a flair for the dra-
matics. Jenny and Satin regularly
work inside and outside of the
prison looking for drug drops and
searching cellblocks and visitor


Muck

ing implication.
There are the obvious cases
that have impacted the nation as a
whole, such as lime disease from
ticks, and the West Nile Virus from
mosquitoes, both of which are
considered to be Zoonotic due to
the fact that in the case of West
Nile Virus, it is actually the bird
that carries the disease and the
mosquito is just the messenger,
which in this case makes it okay to
kill to messenger.
There is also Parvo, an intestinal
bacteria, which proves to be fatal to
dogs if. not treated immediately.
There is also a human strain of
Parvo, but the disease can be trans-
mitted to humans, and while the
animal strain will not directly affect
human health, it can cause miscar-
riages in pregnant women.
While there is no such thing as
"Parvo season" there are yearly
trends. Especially in the Glades,
where the disease becomes more
prevalent and there are theories
that the animals in the Glades are
more susceptible to Parvo because
it is a disease that lies dormant in
soil. Until, that is, activated by sud-
den weather changes, or perhaps
heating of the soil during cane-
burning season, although that has
not been proven.
However, local veterinarian
Doctor Noelle Savedoff, of Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital in Belle
Glade, has seen a common thread
during this time ofyear.
"One of the first lessons I was
taught: Everything grows better in
the muck," she explained. "I think
that may also mean even some of
the things you don't want.
Although Parvo Virus can be seen
anytime of the year, in the last six
years, I have seen a trend with
Parvo. When there is a fast incom-
ing cold spell, followed by an
immediate warm up, I see Parvo
cases coming out of the wood-
work. This usually happens any-
time from January to April. It's real-
ly important to vaccinate your dogs
every six months against parvo."
Belle Glade small animal Veteri-
narian Peggy Lindros agrees that
the Glades area seems to get pore
than its fair share of Parvo, among
her other concerns.
"I think we see more Canine
Parvo Virus than most places do
and I also think we see more
Canine Distemper than other parts
of the area," said Dr. Lindros. "We
seem to have plenty of all kinds of
worms, have to watch for Tetanus
more so than other places, and
have to deal with organophos-
phate poisoning from dogs swim-
ming in the canals."
Both Dr. Savedoff and Dr. Lin-
dros said that these were just their
opinions and had no knowledge of
any scientific data, but numbers are
numbers and facts are facts.
"Parvo isn't rare, but I think the
virus can survive a long time in the
muck," said Dr. Lindros. "Muck is
full of dead plants that make great
food for germs and worms. Also
disinfectants can't work well in the
presence of organic debris (former-
ly living things). It is also very itchy

Black Gold is the Glades' most valuable resource, but while
it helps our crops grow, it can grow a few other things along
the way.


to sensitive skin."
Dr. Savedoff said that she does
not know of any scientific evidence
that the muck is a direct cause for
any disease, but said it's certainly a
viable theory.
"Why do I think this happens? I
only have the speculation that the
beautiful black rich soil, which nur-
tures our crops, can also nurture
the growth of some things we don't
want either. Parvo can live in the
soil for quite some time. Is it tem-
perature sensitive? That's a ques-
tion for virologistt" she said.
Dr. Savedoff said it's not so
much the coincidence of Parvo's
annual arrival, but that, in her per-
sonal experience, the Glades area
does see a higher rate of incidence
in animal problems than other
areas of the state and county -
even a couple of dozen miles up
Hwy. 80. She has worked in differ-
ent areas of Palm Beach County,


including five previous years in the
Glades area before opening her
own hospital a year and a half ago,
three years in Royal Palm and a
year in Miami.
She explained that upon arriv-
ing to the Glades area, everything
she had learned about in vet school
began surfacing with much more
regularity.
"Once in the Glades, I immedi-
ately noticed -two very important
things," she said. "The people in
the Glades are the best in the world,
and so is the muck! Shortly after
that, I soon realized everything I-
learned about in vet school was
just so much more prevalent here!"
Doc Savvy explained that Flori-
da, as a whole, has more problems
than other parts of the country due
to its tropical environment, which
of course provides a better breed-
ing ground for disease.

It's all in the nose for Missy, a
mixed bloodhound and gold-
en retriever. Missy's tracking
skills are second only to
Rambo.
The Glades area offers a virtual
treasure chest of hiding spots for an
escaped inmate. The dogs continu-
ally train within the cane fields sur-
rounding the prison.
"Tracking is 75-percent dog,
and 25-percent handler," said Offi-
cer Bell. "The dogs do the work,
but the handler has to recognize
when the dog is having trouble
picking up on the scent."
Officer Bell said this is particu-
larly true when it comes to tracking
wily escapees who pack pepper on
their escape to throw off the dog's
scent.
"The dog is definitely going to


worm disease, but I never saw as
many heartworm positives as my
first year in the Glades," she said. "I
estimated diagnosing a minimum
of 40 cases my first year out here.
Heartworms are transmitted by
mosquitoes, and I soon found out
the mosquitoes are certainly tough
in the Glades."
Big enough to carry a small
child away, locals will often boast,
but she also said that other "bigger
and badder" problems began to
surface, which include Parvo,
Hookworms, Roundworms, Tape-
worms, fleas and ticks.
"I also saw trickier bacterial,
and fungal infections of the ears,
skin, urinary and respiratory sys-
tems. Atopy, or skin allergies in
my patients due to things like
grasses, trees, pollens, bugs etc.
are part of just about every area,
but this too was just so much
more prevalent here and remains
a constant," she said.
Doc Savvy also cited two cases of
Tetanus that she saw in the Glades
and had not seen anywhere else.
While Heartworms are common in
the state of Florida, the largest in the
country, with one exception being a
county in Louisiana, Western Palm
Beach County has double the rate of
Heartworm cases than a few miles
up the highway. But she is quick to
point out that is because of mosqui-
toes and not the area's Black Gold.
Asked if this area needs a closer
look by the CDC, she said, "No, not
at all. I think client education and
client compliance is making a big
difference."
Doc Savvy strongly recom-
mends to her clients that their pets
be kept current on their vaccina-
tions and heartworm treatments,
because quite frankly, it can mean
life or death for our pets and will
help in preventing the possible out-
break of a new strain of bacteria or
disease that could eventually
become Zoonotic in nature.


hit that pepper and sneeze," he
said. "But that's when the handler
has to step up and recognize a
problem. I have to pull the dog up
and inspect the area myself to see
what happened."
But unlike Hollywood's version,
the dog will regain its senses fairly
quickly and be back on-the trail
soon. But Officer Bell also pointed
out that he always has more than
one dog on a track, allowing for
those possibilities, as well as giving
his primary a tracker a break dur-
ing long hunts.
"I train them a lot in the cane,"
he said. "Those are the obvious
hiding places. But I also train them
a lot on hard surfaces like asphalt.
It's a little harder to pick up the
scent on hard surfaces, but we
train for that too. We also do water
training where we have an officer
pretend to.be an escapee. The offi-
cer, in this example, crossed a
canal. The dogs had the scent,
came to the canal, and swam right
over to the other side where they
picked up the scent and eventually
tracked down the officer."


Officer Bell readily admits that
he probably has the best job in cor-
rections.
"I have a real love for these
dogs," he said. "You have to have a
love of dogs to do this job. You
can't be bothered by getting slob-
bered on. If you don't have a love
for dogs, you can't do this job."
Rambo, Missy, Jenny, and Satin
were victims of Hurricane Wilma
as well. Their kennel area was par-
tially destroyed by the storm and
are awaiting a new home in their
temporary kennels. For these
unsung community heroes, fund-
ing issues are holding up their new
home. Officer Bell, as well as the
GEO administration, who are very
supportive of the K-9 program, are
hoping that the funding will come
soon.
While they have not asked, it is
possible for the community they
help to protect to offer some servic-
es, to include installation or offer-
ing discounted materials to help
these four public protectors get
into a home worthy of their duties.

UF survey shows Florida farmland values increased


GAINESVILLE Demand for
land by developers, investors and
speculators pushed the value of
agricultural land to record levels in
all regions of the state during the
past year, according to a new Uni-
versity of Florida survey.
Prices of agricultural land
increased by 50 percent to 88 per-
cent across the state, and most of
the farmland is not being pur-
chased for agricultural purposes,
said John Reynolds, a professor
with UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences, who conducts
the annual Florida Agricultural
Land Value Survey.
"We've seen a sharp run-up in
farmland prices over the past few
years, and now we're beginning to
see an increase in land speculation
by out-of-town buyers, developers
and foreign investors. And there's
also a strong demand for rural
homesites," he said. "When you
consider the volatility of the stock
market, coupled with rising interest
rates, land is a very attractive invest-


ment some people buy and flip
property for quick gain."
Reynolds' 2005 survey, which
measures changes over the past
year, divides the state into five
regions: south, southeast, central,
northeast and northwest. Because
of the impact urbanization has on
agricultural land values, the data for
the southeast region, including
Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm
Beach counties are confined to
transition land values.
He said the survey indicates that
the average value of agricultural
land ranges from about $2,700 per
acre for unimproved pasture and
farm woods in Northwest Florida
to almost $10,000 per acre for
orange groves in Central and South
Florida.
The value of grapefruit groves
increased 88 percent in the south
region of the state and 81 percent in
the central region, largely because
of crop loss from hurricanes, he
said. The value of orange groves
increased 52 percent to 53 percent


in the central and south regions.
The average value of orange
groves was $9,956 per acre in the
south region about $150 per acre
higher than in the central region.
The estimated value of grapefruit
groves was $9,897 per acre in the
south region about $1,705 per
acre higher than in the central
region. The value of land with 5-7-
year-old citrus plantings was
$8,944 per acre in the south region
- $83 per acre higher'than in the
central region.
In all regions of the state, the
value of other types of cropland
also increased by as much as 85
percent, and the value of pasture-
land increased by as much as 87
percent.
In the south region, the value for
cropland and pastureland
increased from 66 percent to 81
percent, respectively, Reynolds
said. The largest increases were in
the Indian River area, Okeechobee
County and the Gulf Coast coun-
ties. Cropland and pastureland in


other regions also posted big
increases: 78 percent to 82 percent
in the central region; 69 percent to
85 percent in the northwest region,
and 69 percent to 87 percent in the
northeast region."
The value of irrigated cropland
increased by 67 percent in the
south region,. 85 percent in the
northeast region of the state and 83
percent in the northwest region.
The value of irrigated cropland was
$6,509 per acre in the south region,
$6,356 per acre in the northeast
region and $4,012 per acre in the
northwest region.
The value of non-irrigated crop-
land increased 69 percent in the
northeast and northwest regions.
The value of non-irrigated cropland
was $4,490 per acre in the north-
east region and $3,332 in the north-
west region.
The value of pastureland
increased about 81 percent in the
south region and 78 percent to 82
percent in the central region. The
value of improved pasture


increased 85 percent to 87 percent
in the northern regions. The value
of unimproved pasture increased
76 percent in the northeast and 82
percent in the northwest.
The value of improved pasture
ranged from $3,337 per acre in the
northwest region to $6,426 per acre
in the central region. The value

unimproved pasture ranged from
$2,645 per acre in the northwest
region to $4,715 per acre in the
south region.
The value of farm woods
increased 81 percent in the north-
east region and 84 percent in the
northwest region. The lowest agri-
cultural land values were in the
northwest region, ranging from
$2,645 per acre for unimproved
pasture to $4,012 per acre for irri-
gated cropland.
The survey also measures the
value of transition land acreage
being converted or likely to be con-
verted to nonagricultural sites for
homes, subdivisions and commer-
cial uses. Counties were divided


into metropolitan and non-metro-
politan counties, and transition
land values were estimated for
each region.
The value of transition land
within five miles of a major town in
metropolitan counties increased
from 31 percent to 120 percent
from 2004 to 2005, Reynolds said.
Within five miles of a major
town in metro counties, the value
of transition land ranged from
$18,423 per acre to $46,481 per
acre. The value of transition land
more than five miles from a major
town in metro counties ranged
from $10,758 per acre to $23,575
per acre, except in the southeast
region where transition land values
were $66,667 per acre.
In non-metropolitan counties,
the value of transition land within
five miles of a major town ranged
from $6,167 per acre to $17,143 per
acre. Transition land values more
than five miles from a major town
in non-metro counties ranged from
$5,333 to $10,600 per acre.

Water management employees


are set to run for a remedy


WEST PALM BEACH Run-
ning can be painful and exhaust-
ing. However, exhaustion is sure to
be replaced with exhilaration as
198 South Florida Water Manage-
ment District team members run
the race to find a remedy for breast
cancer in the South Florida Komen
Race for the Cure(r).
"District employees have always
supported this particular cause, but
response for the Jan. 21 West Palm
Beach race this year has been over-
whelming," said District employee
Kathie Morris, a breast cancer sur-
vivor and co-coordinator of
employee fund-raising efforts for.
the race. "Our 198-member team
includes 46 competitive runners -
28 women and 18 men," she
added.
The District has won the desig-


nation as largest governmental
team for the past two years and
hopes to achieve this honor for the
third year in a row. The event is the
culmination of months of fund-rais-
ing activities, which have included
sales of baked goods, breast cancer
awareness-themed merchandise,
and other donated items.
Governing Board member and
breast cancer survivor, Alice J.
Carlson, serves as Honorary Co-
Chair for District events alongside
Governing Board Vice-Chair, Irela
Bagu. Carlson knows firsthand
the great work that gets accom-
plished by events like Race for the
Cure. "District employees, as
always, can be counted on for
their generosity of both time and
money in support of charitable
organizations such as the Susan


G. Komen Breast Cancer Founda-
tion," she said.
Last year more than 130 District
employees registered for the race
and $8,225 was raised from all
events to contribute to the cancer
foundation. This year's total
amount won't be tallied until after
the race on Jan. 21. While topping
last year's number would sugar
coat this year's effort, the real
delight comes from joining with
breast cancer survivors to provide
support and resources for others
traveling the breast cancer journey.
Seventy-five percent of the money
raised from the race stays right here
in our community and 25% is
donated to the national Komen
Foundation exclusively for national
research grants and awards.

USDA says citrus canker won't be eliminated


TALAHASSEE Florida Com-
missioner of Agriculture and Con--
sumner Services Charles H. Bronson
has received word from top U.S.
Department of Agriculture officials
that they no longer believe that it is
possible to eradicate citrus canker.
USDA's position was formally com-
Inunicated in a letter from Deputy
Secretary Chuck Conner. Officials
said Jan. 11, based on USDAs sci-
entific analysis of the potential
spread of the disease from the
unprecedented 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane seasons, a new manage-
ment plan must be devised.
The USDA officials said the pro-
gram needs to undertake a new
approach that focuses on maintain-
ing bacteria levels low enough to


sustain citrus production and pro-
tect citrus groves that have not been
infested with canker. In the mean-
time, USDA states that it will no
longer fund tree removal that is
done with eradication as the goal.
The federal agency, in conjunction
with the Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services,
intends to develop a response plan
with scientific, industry and public
input that will limit further tree
removal and implement manage-
ment practices that will accomplish
the goals of controlling and sup-
pressing canker infestations.
"I am committed to working
with our federal partner, the scientif-
ic community and growers on steps
to ensure the continued sustainabil-


ity of this industry, so critical to the
economic well being of our state, as
well as protecting the thousands of
residential trees that have not yet
been impacted by citrus canker,"
Mr. Bronson said. "I will make all
resources available to determine
where we go to secure the future of
the citrus industry." The change
comes after a review of scientific
research that indicates Hurricane
Wilma may have spread the disease
to the point where an estimated
168,000 to 220,000 aces of commer-
cial citrus could be infected and
exposed to canker. This is in addi-
tion to the more than 80,000 acres
of commercial citrus that was
affected by the 2004 hurricanes.
The USDA also indicates that


Brazilian orange juice is


now dumped in U.S. market


LAKELAND The U.S.
Department of Commerce
released their final decision on
Jan. 9, in the investigation of a
petition filed by a coalition con-
sisting of Florida Citrus Mutual
and a group of Florida-based
orange juice processors, includ-
ing A. Duda & Sons, Inc., Citrus
World, Inc. and Southern Gar-
dens Citrus, requesting that
antidumping duties be levied to
offset the unfair prices offered
by Brazilian processors on
orange juice.
The Department ruled that
Brazilian processors were
dumping frozen concentrated
orange juice (FCOJ) and not-
from-concentrate (NFC) orange
juice, by the price margins of 10
to 60 percent of the export
value of the juice. Imports of


NFC and FCOJ will continue to
be assessed an antidumping
deposit upon entry into the U.S.
"We are gratified by the
Department's confirmation of
our assumptions that Brazilian
orange juice has been dumped
into the U.S. market for years,"
said Andy LaVigne, Florida Cit-
rus Mutual's executive vice
president/CEO. "Although hurri-
canes and canker have caused
recent problems for the indus-
try, if dumping were to persist,
Florida growers would experi-
ence severe long-term, negative
price impacts that could jeop-
ardize their very livelihood."
The International Trade
Commission (ITC), which is
jointly reviewing the petition
with the Commerce Depart-
ment, will hold their final hear-


ing tomorrow, and make their
final decision by February, on
whether imports have caused
material injury to the industry.
The petition was filed on
Dec. 27, 2004 and cites unfair
trade practices, which have
caused material injury to Flori-
da citrus growers and proces-
sors during the past three years.
Florida Citrus Mutual, found-
ed in 1948, is the state's largest
citrus grower organization with
more than 10,000 members.
The Florida citrus industry pro-
vides a $9.1 billion annual eco-
nomic impact to the state,
employs nearly 90,000 people
and provides 650,000 acres of
green space. For more informa-
tion, please visit
www.flcitrusmutual.com.


growers have said they cannot sur-
vive the loss of more than 25 per-
cent of the state's citrus acreage
and that federal costs to implement
the 1,900-foot tree removal would
cost significantly more than the
annual $36 million federal appro-
priation as well as hundreds of mil-
lions of dollars more in compensa-
tion payments to growers. The
USDA has provided a significant
portion of the funding for the Citrus
Canker Eradication Program and
all of the grower compensation
since its inception in 1995.
"Unfortunately, everything the
scientists predicted has come true,"
Mr. Bronson said. "The legal delays
and unprecedented hurricanes
enabled the bacteria to leapfrog


TALLAHASSEE Grocery'
shoppers in the United Kingdom
are seeing their winter days bright-
ened by a ray of Florida sunshine.
Waitrose a prominent retail
chain with 180 stores throughout
the U.K. is featuring fresh Flori-
da grapefruit, sweet corn and
blueberries as part of a marketing
campaign developed by the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services that runs
through May.
"The United Kingdom market-
ing promotion is the latest in our
series of campaigns to increase
sales of Florida-grown agricultur-
al products both domestically
and abroad," Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son said. "In the past five years,
these marketing efforts have
helped boost retail sales by more
than $1 billion. That's good news
for Florida's growers and our
state's economy."


significantly beyond the 1,900-foot
cutting zone that science showed
was necessary to prevent spread
under normal weather conditions."
In addition, Mr. Bronson
pledged to continue his efforts to
convince the Legislature and USDA
to provide compensation for
homeowners and growers who
have already had trees removed.
He will be requesting additional
funding for homeowners during
the 2006 legislative session and will
be working with USDA to secure
money for growers who are cur-
rently on a waiting list for federal
compensation dollars.
As a result of the USDA decision,
the Florida Legislature will have to
revisit the laws that guide the Citrus


Each Florida product will be
featured for two or more weeks
during the campaign. Promotions
will include in-store samplings,
recipe cards, and feature articles in
Waitrose's magazine which
reaches hundreds of thousands of
British consumers. In addition, the
department's executive chef will
conduct demonstrations in Wait-
rose's flagship outlets that have
kitchen and audience facilities.
The events are designed to draw
shoppers, media representatives,
chefs and restaurant owners.
This year's expanded Waitrose
campaign follows 2005's pilot
program that featured Florida
sweet corn exclusively. As a result
of in-store samplings and demon-
strations, Waitrose reported a 125
percent increase in sales of Flori-
da sweet corn versus the same
period in 2004. The pilot program
cost $26,100 with Waitrose and
the department each paying half.

Acai berries may fight cancer; say UF researchers

Special to INI/AP photo/University of Florida/IFAS/Thomas Wright
Stephen Talcott, an assistant professor with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences in
Gainesville, holds a South American acai berry. Mr. Talcott is
studying the potential health benefits of antioxidants found in
acai berries, a popular ingredient in beverages and dietary
supplements.


factors such as nutrient absorption,
metabolism and the influence of
other biochemical processes may
influence the antioxidants' chemi-
cal activity.
Another UF study, slated to con-
clude in 2006, will investigate the
effects of acai's antioxidants on
healthy human subjects, Mr. Tal-
cott said.
The study will determine how
well the compounds are absorbed
into the blood, and how they may
affect blood pressure, cholesterol
levels and related health indica-
tors. So far, only fundamental
research has been done on acai
berries, which contain at least 50
to 75 as-yet unidentified com-
pounds.
"One reason so little is known
about acai berries is that they're
perishable and are traditionally


used immediately after picking,"
he said. "Products made with
processed acai berries have only
been available for about five years,
so researchers in many parts of the
world have had little or no oppor-
tunity to study them."
Mr. Talcott said UF is one of the
first institutions outside Brazil with
personnel studying acai berries.
Besides Mr. Talcott, UF's acai
research team includes Susan Per-
cival, a professor with the food sci-
ence and human nutrition depart-
ment, David Del Pozo-Insfran, a
doctoral student with the depart-
ment and Susanne Mertens-Tal-
cott, a postdoctoral associate with
the pharmaceutics department of
UF's College of Pharmacy.
Acai berries are produced by a
palm tree known scientifically as
Euterpe


oleracea, common in flood-
plain areas of the Amazon River,
Mr. Talcott said.
When ripe, the berries are dark
purple and about the size of a
blueberry. They contain a thin
layer of edible pulp surrounding a
large seed.
Historically, Brazilians have
used acai berries to treat digestive
disorders and skin conditions, he
said. Current marketing efforts by
retail merchants and Internet busi-
nesses suggest acai products can
help consumers lose weight,
lower cholesterol and gain energy.
"A lot of claims are being made,
but most of them haven't been
tested scientifically," said Mr. Tal-
cott, "We are just beginning to
understand the complexity of the
acai berry and its health-promot-
ing effects."


GAINESVII.LF A Brazilian
berry popular in health food con-
tains antioxidants that destroyed
cultured human cancer cells in a
recent University of Florida (UF)
study, one of the first to investi-
gate the fruit's purported benefits.
Published last week in the
Journal of Agricultural and Food
Chemistry, the study showed
extracts from acai (ah-SAH'-ee)
berries triggered a self-destruct
response in up to 86 percent of
leukemia cells tested, said
Stephen Talcott, an assistant pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
"Acai berries are already consid-
ered one of the richest fruit sources
of antioxidants," Mr. Talcott said.
"This study was an important step
toward learning what people may
gain from using beverages, dietary
supplements or other products
made with the berries."
He cautioned that the study,
funded by UF sources, was not
intended to show whether com-
pounds found in acai berries could
prevent leukemia in people.
"This was only a cell-culture
model and we don't want to give
anyone false hope," Mr. Talcott
said. "We are encouraged by the
findings, however.
Compounds that show good
activity against cancer cells in a
model system are most likely to
have beneficial effects in our bod-
ies."
Other fruits, including grapes,
guavas and mangoes, contain
antioxidants shown to kill cancer
cells in similar studies, he said.
Experts are uncertain how much
effect antioxidants have on cancer
cells in the human body, because


S-~


UF shows soil fumigant


can be reduced 50 percent


WIMAUMA, Fla. With this
month's federal ban on most
uses of methyl bromide, Univer-
sity of Florida (UF)scientists are
searching for alternatives to the
widely used soil fumigant that is
essential for the production of
fruits, vegetables and ornamen-
tals in Florida and the nation. The
fumigant, methyl bromide,
which controls soil pests and
weeds, was banned by the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agendy in
response to the Montreal Proto-
col international treaty because
the chemical harms the Earth's
ozone layer, reducing its ability to
protect the planet from radiation.
Only a few emergency uses of
the fumigant are still permitted.
"Finding a replacement that
will be as cost-effective as
methyl bromide is proving to be
difficult, but we do have some
promising new materials and


approaches to help growers pro-
tect their crops and the environ-
ment," said Jim Gilreath, a pro-
fessor of horticultural sciences at
UF's Institute of Food and Agri-
cultural Sciences.
"As we continue to look for
alternatives for methyl bromide,
we have found that the use of
new virtually impermeable film
and metalized film covers on
plant beds allow growers to
reduce their use of the fumigant
by as much as 50 percent," he
said. "When it comes to holding
or keeping fumigants in the soil,
these high-barrier mulch films
are far superior to conventional
polyethylene mulch films that
have been used by growers for
the past 30 years."
Mr. Gilreath, who leads the
soil fumigation research pro-
gram at UF's Gulf Coast Research
and Education Center in Wimau-


ma, said his research findings
were quickly adopted by growers
this year. Almost every tomato
farm in Florida is now using met-
alized film on some part of its
acreage along with the one-half
rate of methyl bromide.
"In fact, several of the larger
tomato producers shifted all of
their acreage to metalized film in
the Southeast from Florida to
the Delmarva peninsula in Vir-
ginia based on reat,.- 'am our
research," Mr. Gilreath sul
"Growers have been very satis-
fied with the results and plan to
continue using the highly reten-
tive films."
He said the savings in the cost
of methyl bromide along with
more equitable distribution of
limited supplies of the fumigant
and reduced impact on the
ozone layer have made this
approach very successful.
