Corps revisit dike repairs


Agency works to
keep construction
away from homes

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
PAHOKEE The U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers does not
want to tear up anyone's prop-
erty.
Responding to concerns of
property owners with homes


located along the edge of the
Herbert Hoover Dike, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers is hop-
ing to assuage residents' fears
that their property will not be
torn up to make repairs to the
aging structure.
One of the goals of the corps
at this point, according to Susan
Jackson, public affairs specialist
for the organization, is minimiz-
ing the amount of work that will
have to be carried over onto
personal property.
Work at the moment is


focused on finding ways around
"negatively impacting homes
out there," Ms. Jackson said.
The issue with the impact on
personal property has only
recently been brought to the
forefront after some in the
Pahokee community found out
about the plans which would
mean buying personal property
along the dike to allow for a
construction project to
strengthen the dike.
Last year, all eyes seemed to
focus on the condition of the

from property owners to extend
construction work relating to
the levee.
But corps officials say the


work may be necessary,
although any current plans to
move forward in that direction
are certainly not set in stone,
they said.
Currently, the first reach of
work is being broken into four
separate sub-reaches that are
being worked on simultaneous-
ly, according to Ms. Jackson. To
keep the community well
informed, the corps is planning
meetings to hear the communi-

Vehicle overturns
on a shell-rock road
near South Bay

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY A Clewiston man
died in an accident near U.S. 27
after his work.truck ended up in
a canal bank.
According to a press release
provided by the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, the
truck that Clodoardo Gomez

the morning on Tuesday, Feb.


19, in a sugarcane field approxi-
mately 16 miles south of South
Bay.
The 45-year old man, for
unknown reasons, somehow
lost control of his vehicle as it
drifted off the south side of the
roadway, the report said.
As a result, the man's vehicle
turned over on a canal bank,
causing it to rest upside down in

visible, the press release said.
The PBSO report said that
the driver was ejected and his
body was recovered by the

The incident is currently
under investigation by the
PBSO.

Expunge program helps women


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE New Destiny
Community Church has imple-
mented an expunge program
for women in the community.
Started up by Pamela Hines,
the primary focus of the pro-
gram is for young women of the
Glades area to have an opportu-
nity to have their criminal
charges expunged. It allows
them opportunities to obtain
skilled jobs to help better them-
selves and their families.
To have criminal charges
expunged means to have the
history of the charges erased
from record.
C. Robertson, 22, is the first
woman to successfully com-
plete the process through the
church.
Those interested must first
fill out an application to see
whether or not they qualify. The
application serves as an eligibil-


ity form for the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement to
determine, on a case-by-case
basis, if a record could be
expunged or sealed.
The entire process is then
certified by the local clerk of
court.
Ms. Robertson, a Georgia
native, knows the process very
well because she went through
it.
She attempted to have a
credit card fraud charge sealed
from her criminal record and
.was later successful with the
process.
Ms. Robertson, who has two
young children, had been
caught using somebody else's
credit card to buy milk and
other groceries after she
noticed another customer had
forgotten the credit card.
She was arrested and taken
to jail.
"What I did was not out of


greed, but was a choice made
to meet the needs of myself and
my two kids,".said Ms. Robert-
son.
Ms. Robertson said that the
decision was made on an
impulse.
"I regret what happened, but
I thank God for allowing me to
learn from the experience and
be a better woman for it," said
Ms. Robertson.
Prior to finding out about the
process through her church Ms.
Robertson said she didn't think
she would ever be able to find
another good job.
Now, because she went
through the process, she is get-
ting ready to start work with
one of the local city hall offices.
Ms. Robertson said that she
encourages young people to
resist the temptation to commit
a crime, but there is hope for

CITY COMMISSIONERS: In regards to city commission, there are
certain Belle Glade commissioners that are not living in the City of
Belle Glade. They spend tax dollars foolishly and have no respect for
the citizens and the employees. They are spending tax dollars foolishly.
They spent dollars on lawyers' fees. They fire employees, including Mr.
Daughtrey, and it was inexcusable and had not merit whatsoever. The
current mayor and commissioners do not want input at city commis-
sion meetings. To fire Mr. Daughtrey and to hire Mr. Finizio, it was care-
ful planning because evidently Mr. Finizio was at the city meeting.
Coincidence, I think not. The citizens will remember the pain and dis-
respect you have caused.

LABELLE Child Care of
Southwest Florida, Inc.,
launched a year-long celebra-
tion of its 40th anniversary
recently by announcing that it
has served more than 100,000
children with early childhood
education since the non-profit
agency began in 1967.
Child Care of Southwest Flori-
da, Inc., operates three child
care centers in Hendry and
Glades counties, including Chil-
dren's Garden of LaBelle on
Highway 80 in LaBelle; Glades
County Child Development Cen-
ter on Hendrix Street in Moore
Haven, and Harlem Academy
Day Care Center in Clewiston.
The agency also provides servic-
es in Lee and Collier counties.
"It truly is amazing, the num-
ber of lives we've touched over
the years," said Bill Robinson,
chairman of the board of direc-
tors of Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Inc. "Parents who
received care as children in our
centers are now adults with fam-
ilies of their own."
In addition to providing child
care in its 10 directly-operated
centers, Child Care of Southwest
Florida offers referral services
for families seeking child care,
conducts and coordinates train-
ing for child care workers, and
administers the federal and state
child care subsidy program for
parents who cannot afford child
care.
"We are very fortunate to
have the Early Learning Coali-
tion of Southwest Florida as our
partner for the past three years.
By working together, we are
realizing our goal of providing
high quality early childhood
education experiences for chil-
dren throughout Southwest


Florida," Mr. Robinson said.

Refinery, 111 Ponce DeLeon Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
Facility Location: U.S. Sugar Corporation Operates an existing sugar mill and refinery, which is located in Hendry County at the intersection
ofW.C. Owens Avenue and State Road 832 in Hendry County, Florida.
Project: Boiler 8 was originally permitted as a major modification in accordance with Rule 62-212.400, EA.C. for the Prevention of Significant
Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality. Subsequent projects must be reviewed for PSD applicability. The applicant proposes the following revisions
to Permit No. PSD-FL-333 for newly constructed Boiler No. 8: clarification of boiler startup procedures; modification of the biomass in the heat
input and steaming rates. As constructed, this newly designed boiler is actually capable of generating. 15% more steam when firing approximate-
ly 15% more fuel. Although this will result in potential increases in hourly emission rates, annual potential emissions will not increase because
there will be no change in the current limitation oil the annual steam production. Initial startup of Boiler 8 was March of 2005. This unit has not
established normal operations for a two-year period, Pursuant to Rule 62-210.200(11), FA.C., there will be no increase in annual emissions and
the project is not subject to PSD preconstruction review.
Because the project results in increased potential'maximum short-term emissions, all air quality impact analysis was conducted for carbon
monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter less titan. 10 microns in diameter (PMlo), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). For these pollu-
tants, the initial air dispersion modeling analysis predicted ambient concentrations below the applicable PSD significant impact levels for the
closest PSD Class I Area, which is the Everglades National Park. The initial air dispersion modeling analysis also predicted ambient concentra-
tions below tire applicable PSD significant impact levels for the PSD Class 11 Areas in the vicinity of the plant, except for the 24-hour average
SO2 value. Therefore, a refined analysis was conducted for S02, emissions. The subsequent modeling results showed all predicted SO0 emissions
impacts well below the applicable state and federal ambient air quality standards, The following table compares the total maximum impacts pre-
dicted in the area with the corresponding maximum n allowable PSD Class II increments.

Annual 0 20 0%
SO2 24-hour 9 91 10%
3-hour 39 512 8% /
As shown by (the air quality analyses, emissions from the modified project will not significantly cause or contribute to a violation of any state or
federal ambient air quality standards or PSD) increments.
Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida
Statutes (ES.) and Chapters. 62-4, 62-2 10, air(] 62-212 of the Florida Administrative Code (FA.C.). The proposed project is not exempt from

February brings change of seasons newsza co-m
ornrnun.ity LInks. Individual Volce


By Gene McAvoy
Extension Horticulture Agent
Although February is a lot like
January to the casual observer,
mostly cool and dry, the subtle
changes marking the annual
rotation of the seasons are
becoming more apparent.
Although the mercury may
obscure the reality warmer
weather is really right around
the corner.
Mother Nature being more
attuned to seasonal change is
well aware of this fact. Flocks of
swallows which moved south
through our area in December
are now back and on their way
north. Robins are bunching up
in large flocks and feasting on
the bright red berries of Brazilian
pepper while waiting for the
weather to break up north.
Along the roadsides and
ditches, the dainty little lavender
flowers of the blue toadflax pro-
vide a brush of color to contrast
with the dry brown grasses.
Cypress, oaks, and willows are
all flowering now while the red
maple has already finished and
preparing to send its scarlet
winged seeds spiraling to earth.
The quickening rhythm of life
at this time of'year is also a clear
signal to gardeners of several
chores Which should be accom-
plished in the coming weeks.
There are several garden tasks
that should be performed in Feb-
ruary that will help set the stage
for success in the landscape over
the coming year.


Hendry
County
Garden
Just as Mother Nature is
beginning to respond to subtle
changes in temperature and day
length; so are the cultivated
plants and weeds in the land-
scape. Over the next few weeks,
many trees and shrubs will
begin to respond to these chang-
ing conditions with the first of
several flushes of growth which
we will see over the course of
the year. To help get plantings off
to a good start, it is important
that they are provided with ade-
quate nutrition to support the
new growth. February is the per-
fect time to fertilize your trees,
palms, shrubs, vining plants and
lawns.
A general fertilization pro-
gram for most perennial plant-
ings includes three applications
of fertilizer per year. These appli-
cations should normally be
done in February-March, May-
June and September-October to
coincide with and support peri-
odic flushes of new growth. Fer-
tilization is best conducted on
the basis of a soil test. In the
absence of a soil test, a com-
plete fertilizer will provide good
results in most instances. Feel
free to contact the Hendry Coun-
ty Extension office for more spe-
cific fertilizer recommendations


or assistance with soil testing.
While lawns and lawn care
may be far from many peoples
minds at this moment, a timely
application of pre emergent her-
bicide in early to mid February
will help prevent the emergence
of many annual grassy weeds,
whose seeds are anxiously
awaiting a break in the weather.
For best results, this should be
followed up with a second appli-
cation in 8 9 weeks after the
first. Be sure to choose the prop-
er herbicide for your situation.
This will be governed by the type
of turf and type of weeds to be
controlled.
February is typically quite dry
- be sure to irrigate as needed to
maintain plantings in top shape.
Judicious use of mulch can help
conserve moisture and reduce
irrigation requirements.
As we approach the middle
to the end of February, most
trees and shrubs can be safely
pruned if they require training or
reshaping to keep them in
bounds. Be sure to wait on prun-
ing spring flowering specimens
until after they bloom or you will
risk seriously reducing this sea-
son's floral display. Most peren-
nials can be safely divided and
reset in February.
This is the last month that the
planting calendar is wide open for
most vegetables and flowering
annuals in our area. Be sure to
use transplants as seeded plants
will be hampered by hot weather
before reaching maturity. Febru-
ary is a good time for planting


watermelons. Other vegetables
that can be planted this month
include beans, beets, broccoli,
cabbage, cantaloupe, collards,
cucumbers, eggplants, leaf let-
tuce, mustard, peppers, squash,
Swiss chard, and tomatoes.
Flowering annuals that can
be planted this month include
baby's breath, bachelor buttons,
balsam, calendulas, carnations,.
cosmos, cockscomb, daisies,
forget-me-nots, gaillardia, holly-
hocks, impatiens, lobelias,
marigolds, morning glories, nas-
turtiums, pansies, periwinkles,
petunias, phlox, pinks, poppies,
portulacas, salvia, statice,
stocks, strawflower, sweet peas,
sweet William, and verbena.
Bulbs to plant this month
include amaryllis, blood lily, cal-
adiums, crinum daylilies gladio-
lus, iris, and zephryanthes.
Insect and disease pressure
will increase with the return of
warmer weather so be sure to
monitor your plantings on a
weekly basis and practice an
integrated pest management
program. Good luck and good
gardening.

Seminole War reenactment displays


Seminole Tribe of Florida will
present reenactments of the Sec-
ond Seminole War at the Big
Cypress Shootout at Billie
Swamp Safari located between
Fort Lauderdale and Naples, on
the Big Cypress Reservation just
north of 1-75 (Alligator Alley)
Exit 49.
The battle reenactments
honor the Seminole's struggle
and sacrifice to remain in their
homeland and will feature
authentic weapons, soldier and
warrior attire and tactics typical
of the Second Seminole War.
The three-day event will also


include time period encamp-
ments, alligator wrestling, snake
presentations, music, food, arts
and crafts, storytelling and Semi-
nole and pioneer artisans. "Peri-
od settlers" from around the
country will hew wood, iron and
silver crafts and depict trading
techniques from the Seminole
war era.
Musical guests include: Oke-
fenokee Joe, Benjamin Dehart
(The Cracker Tenor) and Cow-
bone.
The reenactments will take
place Friday, Feb. 23, through
Sunday, Feb. 25


Gates open on Friday from 11
a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Satur-
day and Sunday from 10 a.m.
until 5 p.m.
Battle reenactments will take
place at'2 p.m. on Saturday and
Sunday.
Billie Swamp Safari is located
between Fort Lauderdale and
Naples, on the Big Cypress
Reservation just north of 1-75
(Alligator Alley) Exit 49.
In the 1800s, a total of three
wars were fought by the U.S.
military against the Seminoles.
These campaigns were the
longest, costliest, and bloodiest


of all the Indian wars. Although
many Seminoles were killed or
removed to present-day Okla-
homa, they were never defeated,
and to this day, 3,000 Seminoles
are known as "The Uncon-
quered" Seminole Tribe of Flori-
da.
The cost for tickets is $7
adults and just $5 for children
(Cash only, please)
For more information on the
events or on the Seminole tribe,
please call 1-800-GO-SAFARI, or

The corps hopes a topogra-

won't know for sure until later

that work will be necessary.

Based on experiences and trials, your life story


By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church
In a way, every life is a contin-
ued story made up of separate
incidents, but with a basic plot run-
ning through the whole.
At this moment, you are some-
where in the story of your life. You
are where you are because of cer-
tain things that have happened in
the past, because of experiences
that have carried through from pre-
vious chapters, and because of the
underlying ideas that are currently
running through your mind.
Of course, the most important


parts of your life story are not those
incidents that happened to you, but
the many things that happen
through you all the time. And these
are primarily the result of your
basic plotting of your life.
Strangely enough, while most
people prefer to read stories with a
happy ending, many of them plot
their own stories with more regard
for the trials, tribulations, and indi-
cations of calamity, than for the
possibilities of good.
You are not the victim of circum-
stances! You are the writer of your
own experience in living. If you


don't like the way the script reads at
present, then it is your job (and
your responsibility) to start in right
where you are to change it, to write
it nearer to what you truly desire
and the goal you want to reach.
You will never do this by regret-
ting the past; looking back and
wishing you could relive certain
chapters. You will never move for-
ward while you complain, "If I
had just known years ago what I
know now!"
You are now, at this moment,
the product of what you have
learned and what you have experi-


enced through the years you have
lived, and this is the place to start
building your life in the direction
you want to take.
First, it is well to consider, just
what you would like to have as the
underlying truth in your life, what
you would like to choose as your
plot for living.
Choose wisely. Base your life
firmly and definitely on the right
ideas, and you will find that the
chapters have a way of writing
themselves and filling your life
experience with good.
Plot your life with faith faith in


a higher power that has created
you for good and needs you to
round out and fulfill the text of a
greater story of good. By all
means, incorporate faith in basic
goodness and faith in the future
into your plot for living.
Base your life, too, on courage,
the courage that enables you to
meet the situations that each new
chapter brings with a high heart
and a fearless spirit. Know that
each experience, tightly met, takes
you forward to something better.
Best of all, base you life on god,
and see the understanding of his


Overcoming what is the First Law of Wing-Walking


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There's a story of a man who
had a garage sale. One of the
items in the sale was a hot air
popcorn pop-
per. It was still
in the original
box and still
had the war-
ranty. A
woman
bought it for
$3. The day
after the sale,
the. woman John
was at the
door demand-
ing a refund because, "The pop-
per didn't work". She had tried
it, and the popcorn had taken 30


minutes to pop. The man was a
nice guy and gave the woman
her three bucks back. After she
left, the man plugged in the pop-
per and tested it. It worked fine.
He looked at the instructions
and in small print were these
words:
Please note: If the popcorn
you use is old and dry, it will take
an excessive amount of time to
pop. For best results, use only
fresh popcorn.
In some ways, this is kind of a
parable for us. Old kernels work,
but sometimes the best results
come from using fresh kernels
and fresh ideas in the popper we
call life.
Too often we live according
to what is sometimes called
"The First Law of Wing-walk-
ing." Wing-walking was a dare-


devil practice in the early days of
aviation in which aviators
walked the wings of biplanes as
they buzzed over airfields, and
the first law of wing-walking is
this: never let go of what you are
holding on to until you are hold-
ing on to something else.,
It is a wise approach to dare-
devil stunts, but as a strategy for
the life of faith in general, it is
less than helpful. One of the
secrets to successfully starting
something new is the ability to
let go of what came before.
To be fit and free for a new
calling, a new ministry, a new
way of life, or even for retire-
ment, we need to prayerfully
release our grip on what has
gone before, whether it has been
a blessing or a curse.
We are not free to receive if


our hands are tightly clinging to
what has been, but only if we
open ourselves to the newness
that awaits in the future. Releas-
ing that which formerly claimed
so much of our energy and devo-
tion is essential to receiving this
freedom.
Life as well as ministry always
involves change. We often fail to


truly embrace the new blessings
God has in store for us when we
cling too tightly to the past.
As the Apostle Paul stated,
"Forgetting what is behind and
straining toward what is ahead, I
press on toward the goal to win
the prize for which God has
called me heavenward in Christ
Jesus." Philippians 3


nature, his love, his wisdom, to
increase your own ability to cope
with the things that arise in your
daily living.
Let god furnish the plot; base
your life on the use of spiritual prin-
ciples according to your own best
understanding; and you will find
each day brings many blessings,
and each chapter leads your nearer
to the happy culmination of your
experience of living.

When the tables were turned on the king


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Sometimes people will tell a
story to another to teach a lesson in
a very special way. There is a
famous Biblical account of King
David, who "stole" Bathsheeba
from her husband. This powerful
king was able to abuse his office
and lure the wife of another away
and much suffering followed.
Nobody would dare tell the king
that he was wrong by what he had
done, but there was Nathan the
prophet. He went to David and told
him about a very rich man in his
kingdom who had all sorts of flocks
and herds and a very poor man
who had only one little lamb that
he dearly loved. In spite of having
everything, the rich man wanted
the poor man's only lamb and took
it. King David got angry when he


heard the story and said that the
rich man deserved to die and
should have no pity. When David
paused, Nathan turned the tables
on David and said "That man is
you!" Then King David realized
what he had .~g .
done and said .
"I have sinned
against the ..- -
Lord." You can
read this pow-
erful story and
its' outcome for -
yourself in the
second book of
Samuel, chap- SamuelS.
ter. 12. Later in Thomas
the Bible, there
is a parable about a mote and a
beam (Luke 6:41-42) that tells us
also about it being easier to see
something in others than our-
selves. A few Saturdays ago, I was
invited to attend a class reunion of

ship of the late pastor and founder, Dr. Zola Mae Reed.

"EsseiScarlett~ "


my high school class and my
schedule permitted me to go. As I
walked into the meeting room, my
first reaction was that "these are all
old people!" and then came a
thought that hit me squarely
between the eyes; "I am part of this
group, too!" Then as I heard about
others; about one waiting for a
transplant, about another who
could not come because he was
wheelchair-bound, or about others
who had passed away, I also real-
ized something else. I stopped and
thought for a second about how
blessed, or how fortunate and rich I
was. I listened to what happened
over the years to many.of those
who finished high school with me
and realized how many things I
have done and about the wonder-
ful experiences I have had. It is
wrong to compare; I didn't think of
myself as being better or worse off,
more blessed or luckier, but rather
how special for me were the per-
sons and experiences that have
come into my life. The shock and
confrontation became a round-
about way of being thankful and
grateful. I was happy for those who
had made it to this special reunion
forty-nine years later, after we all sat
on that graduation stage and then
went our separate ways. Many of
those things that are special to us
are special because they are ours;
the people in our lives, the places
where God has sent us, the things
that have happened to us, those we
love and who love us in return, and
those who challenge us and vex us.
Others share in all of these things in
their own ways as we share ours;
the Lord reminds us that "In my
father's house there are many
mansions." God shows Himself in
so many ways in so many, many
lives. I didn't have a chance to share
with everyone that afternoon
before having to return home; but I
was there long enough to see that
God had led each one on a special
path and each has a special place in
His Plan. Then I remembered "I am
part of this group too!" and what
was first a shocking revelation
became a moment of thanksgiving
and praise for the blessings given to
me. One of my teachers said "We
pray more often to Santa Claus
than to God" meaning that we are
more ready to ask God for things
than to give thanks. That time, that
moment, I stopped to give thanks
and will continue to say "Thank
you, Lord" for what I learned when
the tables were turned on me one
day and I saw something in a very
unexpected way.

plaque and a $100 honorarium.
Key Private Bank is the sponsor

Lottie Lowe Sills was an Okeechobee pioneer


By MaiyAnn Morris
Lottie Lowe Sills now 89 years
old was born in Okeechobee
County in 1920, just after Okee-
chobee County officially created
from a portion of Osceola County
in 1917. Her father was Sidney
Lowe. She went to school in the
Basinger Schoolhouse that now
houses the Okeechobee Histori-
cal Museum out on S.R. 98.
"They had two rooms and
two teachers then" she remem-
bered. "Pearl Pearce was one of
the teachers. I went to school
through eighth grade and that
was about all there was out in
the country back then. Of course
in the cities they had high
schools, but not in the country.
She married Harris Sills and
they had ten children: Henry,
Shirley, Wilma Lamar were born
in Highlands County at what is
now called the Edna Pearce
Lockett Estate on the west bank.
of the Kissimmee River. Sidney
worked in the citrus groves (part
of these groves can still be seen
on the property) Lottie kept
house for the family in the small-
er house to the west of the Lock-
ett home.
"We moved back to Okee-
chobee to a house near what is
now Treasure Island," said Mrs.
Sills. Keep in mind, Taylor Creek
was a meandering stream,
which flowed freely into Lake
Okeechobee.
"You remember Aunt Merida
Raulerson? She delivered my
children. She was so wonderful,
she was the best!" she recalled.
Merida (Drawdy) Raulerson
had moved to Tantie with her
husband, William, son of Noel
Rabun Raulerson, Jr. in 1903.
Merida was born in Georgia in
1880 and moved with her par-
ents, George and Emily Drawdy,
to Fort Drum during the 1890's.
She soon became an indis-
pensable member of the Tantie
settlement as a midwife. Merida
had no formal medical educa-
tion; years of experience in prim-
itive conditions gave her sound
medical training with just a third
grade education. She used nei-
ther rubber gloves nor forceps,
but reported that she "never lost
a single baby."


Submitted photos/Lisa Sills
The house where Lottie and Harris Sills lived and Henry, Shirley and Wilma, three of their ten
children were born still stands on the Lockett estate on the west bank of the Kissimmee
River. Lottie and her former daughter-in-law, Jane went back to visit recently.

pioneers and history -

"I had the rest of my children
right here and Aunt Merida deliv-
ered them all: Mabel, Jack, Bar-
bara, Leon, Hugh," she said with
a faraway look.
No wonder. Look at all the
changes she can remember.
My thanks to Mrs. Sills for
sharing these bits of her past
with us. Much history of the Lake
area would be lost were it not for
the generosity of folks with their
time and their stories.

WEST PALM BEACH Diver
technicians who work for South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) face unusual
risks to complete repairs.
Descending into the tea dark
waters of a shallow marsh,
maintenance divers with the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District are never quite cer-
tain what they'll find.
American alligators are a fre-
quently foul tempered obstacle
to repairs on culverts, spillways,
gates and the like, but occasion-
ally there are other nasty surpris-
es. Each of the divers has stories
to tell.
Doug Updike remembers
moving ropes, one of which
turned out to be a water snake.
James Binns was asked to help
recover a drowning victim near
a boat lock. Then there was the
time an alligator attacked the
team's remotely operated
underwater camera. Those haz-
ards are in addition to the nor-
mal risks posed by rocks, metal
parts and equipment designed
to be part of a functioning water
structure.
"Sometimes you'll be on the
job and big things will bump
into you," said Mr. Binns. "You
don't know if it's a gator or
what. It can get scary."
It was just another day on the
job for the tight-knit crew when
they set up recently at one of the
District's created wetlands to
install water flow monitors.
Trappers had to remove two alli-
gators, each about 6 feet long,
before the divers could begin
work.
Normal for these men means
handling power tools in water
where visibility is 4 inches to 6
inches on a good day, great
camouflage for more unseen
alligators. Moving carefully
through culverts and cold canals
dressed in a cumbersome,
orange dry suit and full-face
mask isn't a glamorous job. Yet
work the team does is a critical
part of the District's Everglades
restoration and flood control
efforts.
"At one time or another, I
guess we've been all over the
district," said Updike, a structure
maintenance technician who
has been diving on the job for 30
years.
The crew is doing more dives
these days, as often as three
days a week, with work often
done in the District's created
wetlands like Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 1-W, said Duane
Smith, the team's professional
supervisor.
Throughout the District there
are 10 structure maintenance
technicians qualified to dive in
and around spillways, gates, cul-
verts, canals, stormwater treat-
ment areas and other water
structures. Each is certified to
dive in open water, dark water,
with limited visibility and using a
surface air supply. On days they
aren't diving, they do surface
related repairs to the same
structures.
The flow meters installed on


"We've all been to some

that you can get in
Florida. We're pretty
secure that when we're
diving the people up
top are looking out for
our interest."
Doug Updike,
structure maintenance
technician

their recent dive will help Dis-
trict scientists determine how
effectively the created wetland,
or stormwater treatment area, is
working to remove phosphorus
from water headed to the South-
ern Everglades.
The Florida Everglades was
once a vibrant, free-flowing river
of grass that provided clean
water from Lake Okeechobee to
Florida Bay. The Florida legisla-
ture, Florida Governor Charlie
Crist and the District have com-
mitted $3.3 billion toward the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan.
Stormwater treatment areas,
or created wetlands, are an
important part of that plan.
Overall, 40,000 acres of
stormwater treatment areas in
South Florida are dedicated to
phosphorus removal. The nutri-
ent is found in stormwater
runoff from urban lawns, pas-
tures and fields. Too much can
harm the Everglades, promoting
over-growth of invasive and
non-native plant species.
Stormwater Treatment Area
1-W covers 6,670 acres. From
May 2005 to April 2006, it
removed 18.2 metric tons of
phosphorus from 137,890 acre
feet of water. One acre-foot of
water could fill about 22 above-
ground swimming pools.
It takes about two weeks for
one drop of water to flow
through the stormwater treat-
ment area, and it leaves carrying
significantly less phosphorus.
Installing the flow meters,
shoebox sized black boxes, is a
labor intensive process for the
divers. The culverts, each six feet
wide, must be checked for alliga-
tors by a remote camera before
divers enter the water. Line ten-
ders must guide the divers' air
and communications lifelines
over rocks as they enter the
water, and everyone is on stand-
by in case of an emergency.
Chris Holling, another main-
tenance diver, was operating the
intercom from the equipment
trailer as divers installed the
monitors.
"Doug? You got it all lined up
and good to go?" Mr. Holling
leaned into the intercom to ask,
keeping constant track of his
team's progress and safety as
they worked.
Knowing that someone is
always on deck listening for
everything from equipment
troubles to changes in a diver's
breathing adds to the confi-

agement District.


dence level of these experienced
maintenance divers. Everyone
on the team takes turns doing
the work underwater.
"We've all been to some of


the best training that you can get
in Florida," said Mr. Updike.
"We're pretty secure that when
we're diving the people up top
are looking out for our interest."

January 2007 was the warmest on record


ASHVILLE, N.C. The com-
bined global land and ocean sur-
face temperature was the highest
for any January on record, accord-
ing to scientists at the Nation
Oceanagraphic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) National
Climatic Data Center in Asheville,
N.C. The most unusually warm
conditions were in the mid- and
high-latitude land areas of the
Northern Hemisphere. In the con-
tiguous United States, the monthly
mean temperature was near aver-
age in January.
Global Temperatures
The combined global land and
ocean surface temperature was
1.53 degrees F warmer than the
20th century average of 53.6
degrees F for January based on pre-
liminary data, surpassing the previ-
ous record set in 2002 at 1.28
degrees F above the average. Last
month's record was greatly influ-
enced by a record high land-surface
temperature, which was 3.40
degrees F warmer than average.
Separately, the global ocean-surface
temperature was fourth warmest in
the 128-year series, approximately
0.1 degrees F cooler than the record
established during the very strong El
Nifio episode in 1998.
A moderate El Nifio episode that
began in September 2006 contin-
ued into January but weakened
during the month. The presence of
El Nifio, along with the continuing
global warming trend, contributed
to the record warm January. Month-
ly mean temperatures more than 8
degrees F above average covered
large parts of Eastern Europe and
much of Russia, and temperatures
more than 5 degrees F above aver-
age were widespread in Canada.
The unusually warm conditions
contributed to the 2nd lowest Janu-
ary snow cover extent on record for
the Eurasian continent.
During the past century, global
surface temperatures have
increased at a rate near 0.11
degrees F per decade, but the rate
of increase has been three times
larger since 1976, or 0.32 degrees F
per decade, with some of the
largest temperature increases
occurring in the high latitudes of
the Northern Hemisphere.
U.S. Temperatures
The average January tempera-
ture for the contiguous U.S. was
31.8 degrees F or 0.9 degrees F
above the 20th century average of
30.9 degrees F based on prelimi-
nary data. In the central and east-
ern U.S., the pattern of spring-like
temperatures that began late
December, continued during the
first two weeks of the year. For the
month, 29 states were warmer
than average east of the Mississippi
River and in the northern High
Plains. Alaska also was warmer
than average at 0.9 degrees F above
the 1971-2000 mean.
The same upper-level wind pat-
tern responsible for the warmer-
than-average temperatures in the
east, brought colder-than-average
temperatures to the southern
Plains and much of the West in Jan-
uary. Hundreds of daily low tem-
perature records were either tied or


broken during a mid-January cold
outbreak that extended snowfall as
far south as Arizona and southern
California. Below-average temper-
atures had spread across much of
the country by the end of the
month.
The warmer-than-average tem-
peratures in the eastern half of the
nation helped reduce residential
energy needs for the nation as a
whole. Using the Residential Ener-
gy Demand Temperature Index


(REDTI-an index developed at
NOAA to relate energy usage to cli-
mate), NOAA scientists determined
that the nation's residential energy
demand was approximately 3 per-
cent lower than what would have
occurred under average climate
conditions for the month. This was
much less than the estimated 20
percent temperature-related reduc-
tion in residential energy demand
that occurred during the record
warm January last year.
