Dreams of owning
home turn into
nightmare for family

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Andres
Ruiz's ultimate dream of pur-
chasing a home came down to
his life savings.
An employee of Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperative, Mr. Ruiz
saved $15,000 from his 401K


retirement savings account in
hopes of placing himself, his
wife, Orfa Ruiz, and his two sons
in a brand new home.
Months later, Mr. Ruiz claims
he still doesn't have anything
to show for his money or time,
and blames Hotsy Homes for his
Problems.
The company had promised
to build homes in Belle Glade
in 2005, but has yet to move for-
ward with actual construction.
Hotsy Homes presented their
plans to build what was then


called the Belle Glade Estates, a
parcel of property behind Glades
General Hospital in Belle Glade.
When news of the proj-
ect spread in the community,
Mr. Ruiz remembers having to
choose his top three lot choices
with Hotsy Homes and place a
deposit check payable to the de-
velopment. .
From that date, Mr. Ruiz
claims that he and his wife were
told by Hotsy Homes that they
'had less than a month to choose
a lot and make the deposit. Mr.


Swim meet: Kids enjoy competition


IN/Naji loomas
The Belle Glade swim team, with lifeguards and coaches Kavan Davis, Wanda Melton
and Tracy Posey, hosted the Lake Shore swim meet in Belle Glade on Wednesday, July
25 at the Lake Shore Pool.


Rangel Hernandez, 11, of Montura, was one of
the winners of the 100-meter freestyle event at
the Lake Shore swimming meet in Belle Glade
on Wednesday, July 25.


Sierra Bowers, 9, at right, is with Shen-
na Bowers, 5, left, and Rick Figueroa,
who is the Big Cypress Indian Reser-
vation swimming coach. Sierra placed
second in the 100-meter freestyle,
while finishing first in the 100-meter
backstroke race at the Lake Shore
swim meet in Belle Glade on Wednes-
day, July 25.


Tay Felton, 16, of the Harlem swimming team, makes a freestyle dive in the pool while
preparing for the 100-meter freestyle race.


Ruiz made the decision to buy a
home in January of last year, and
placed a $15,000 deposit toward
a $239,000 home.
The home's design featured a
three-bedroom, two-bathroom,
one-car garage home,
Mr. Ruiz said that, in some
ways, he put his 'life' on the line
with the deposit it was every-
thing that he had; but he liked
the design that the company pre-
sented him enough to commit to
buying.
Mr. Ruiz said he talked to one


of the representatives of the proj-
ect, Tarek Kirschen.
"When we talked to Tarek,
we were very interested in what
Hotsy Homes had to offer," said
Mr. Ruiz. "He had the samples
of what the actual house would
look like. This is what me and
my wife wanted and we were
sold on the home."
By Mr. Ruiz's accounts, about
two weeks after the deposit, he
was told by Mr. Kirschen that

gets an 'A'


Staff used a book
'Good to Great'
to achieve rating

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE In 1999,
Glade View Elementary was
rated an 'F' school based on
the FCAT testing.
This year, the elementary
school was deemed an A'
school for the first time.
Also, for the second time in
its history, Glade View Elemen-
tary School made adequate
yearly progress (AYP) the
school achieved AYP in 2005,
when it was rated a 'B' school.
Mary O. Evans, the princi-
pal for Glade View for the past
three school years, said that she
used the book, "Good to Great"


by Jim Collins, as a guide to'
leading the school to its first 'A'
rating.
According to a passage from
the book, the good to great
leaders began the transforma-
tion by first getting the right
people on the bus and the
wrong people off the bus and
then figuring out where to drive
it, an analogy that Ms. Evans
held close to her.
Ms. Evans followed the ex-
ample by hiring the right teach-
ers and staff.
For the 2006-2007 school
year, Ms. Evans ordered the
book for every faculty member
to read, with staff periodically
discussing portions of the book
with the principal in staff ses-
sions.
Teachers at the elementary
school were encouraged to

resigns from his post, the board

According to Mayor Sasser,
there has yet to be any discus-
sion as to how the vacant po-
sition will be filled. The mayor
said it is likely that the board

until the next election takes

Area relay radio operators attend regional forum


By Samuel S. Thomas
W3ALE PIO Big Lake
Amateur Radio Club
On Saturday, July 21, a region-
al meeting of the Amateur Radio
Emergency Service was held at
the Emergency Operations Center
in West Palm Beach. This secure
"nerve center" for Palm Beach
County hosted the radio com-
munity from Brevard to Monroe
Counties and included Hendry
and Glades County Emergency
Coordinators and staff.
Representing Hendry County
was Jim Sparks, AA4BN, the Emer-
gency Coordinator for the county;
and Sam Thomas, W3ALE, Assis-
tant Emergency Coordinator and
Public Information Officer for the


local radio group at the southern
end of Lake Okeechobee. Both of
these persons are also designated
as "Official Emergency Stations"
by the American Radio Relay
League; indicating that they have
a capacity to stay "on the air" in
the event of major disasters, hur-
ricanes, power outages, or other
situations where the usual power
and communications sources
would not be in service.
Attending from Glades County
was their Emergency Coordinator,
Thom Street, N5KFR, who over-
sees emergency communications
in the Glades County area.
The meeting included approxi-
mately 50 persons who received
updates on communications pro-


tocols and techniques, reports of
regional activities throughout the
southern Florida region, establish-
ing information-sharing networks,
and our place in the larger, state-
wide and national emergency
preparedness efforts. During the
past several years, requirements
for becoming a licensed radio
amateur operator have been sig-
nificantly relaxed.
The Federal Communications
Commission, which regulates all
radio transmissions in the U.S.
(including amateur radio licens-
ing), has eliminated Morse Code
requirements from the licensure
testing. The examination ques-
tions are now in the public do-
main and materials have been


prepared to assist persons in get-
ting ready for licensure tests with-
out the same broad-spectrum
knowledge requirements that
were needed in the past.
Additionally, the testing for li-
censure today is provided through
a national program of volunteer
examiners rather than having to
travel to a local FCC administrative
site for testing. As a result, it is now
possible to take licensing tests in
almost any area of the country.
Hendry and Glades County have
sufficient volunteer examiners
available to make it easy for per-
sons interested in preparing for
radio licenses to be tested.
Persons who are interested
in learning more or preparing to


share in this means of contribut-
ing to their county emergency
preparedness are invited to get in
touch with the local EC's or Assis-
tants. Perhaps more importantly
- entering into an exciting way of:
making friends around the world,
enjoying a new and fascinating
pastime, and learning about a


science at the roots of our society
- is also something to be gained.
For more information, contact the
Big Lake Amateur Radio Club,
through Sam Thomas at (863)
983-7960 or one of the local Emer-
gency Coordinators. They will be
happy to answer questions and
provide additional information.

Summit demonstrates challenges of water control


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida.
On Monday July 30, South
Florida ,Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) called together
representatives of stakeholders:
agriculture, representatives from
the east and west coasts of the
state, environmental interests,
recreation and government inter-
ests to engage in a Water Summit.
The 2007 Water Summit hopes to
explain the challenges faced any
given year to manage the system,
heighten stakeholders' awareness
of water management's decision-
making process and demonstrate
the tools they have available to
manage the system.
"Pre-drainage (no canals, no
dike, etc.) when the wet season
came, the lake spread out in all di-
rections and drained mainly south
then east through the Everglades
and the Florida Keys," said Carol
Wehle, executive director of SF-
WMD. "In those days, water qual-
ity was not even on the table."
"Then drainage canals were
dug and the Herbert Hoover Dike
was built," she continued. "The
dike reduced the size of the lake
by two thirds. Much of the Ev-
erglades had been drained for
farms. The Everglades that is left
was much smaller than before.
The Kissimmee River was chan-
nelized which brought more wa-
ter to Lake Okeechobee faster.
The river had been 103 miles of
twists and turns that slowed the
water which drained all the way
south from Orlando. The chan-
nel however, let the water rush
straight down .a distance of just
56 miles. The effect: more water
coming into a smaller lake and


smaller Everglades has changed
things. Who would have though
we would ever have had record
hurricanes followed by record
drought?"
But the area has had similar
periods of wet and dry seasons,
she continued.
"During the 1930s there was
a severe drought. That was fol-
lowed by the two disastrous hur-
ricanes of the 1940s," said George
Home, Deputy Executive Director
of Operations and Maintenance
for SFWMD. "After this, in 1949,
the Central Florida Flood Control
Project was authorized by the leg-
islature and it was built.. Then in
1972, the legislature authorized
the forming of five water man-
agement districts, their boundar-
ies based on the hydrology (how
the water behaved) in each area,
each district to be governed by a
nine to 11 member board."
Today, salinity in the estuaries
can be judged by where certain
aquatic grasses grow: some like
fresh water, some like salty, he
continued. Too much phospho-
rus and many native plants die
out and less desirable plants take
over.
Birds and wildlife depend on
certain plants for food and nest-
ing sites, he said.
But, water managers pointed
out, the water management sys-
tem, which was designed when
there were about 2 million people
living here, now had to operate
with over 7 million people living
in Florida.
"Florida is a climate of ex-
tremes either very wet or very
dry," said Mr. Home. "I've heard it
called a wet desert."
The water management's


regulation schedule that water
managers talk about can be com-
pared to driving a car, says Cal
Niedrauer, an engineer with SF-
WMD. The speed limit on 1-95 will
vary from 50 mph in some areas
to 70 mph in other, safer areas. In
school zones, don't be caught ex-
ceeding the 15 mph limit during
school hours!
The regulation schedule pro-
vides water managers with guide-
lines for how much water to hold
or release from Lake Okeechobee.
When water levels in the lake are
in the normal range, the lake
serves as water supply and little, if
any water will be released. When
the lake rises too much, water is
discharged for flood control.
However, said Mr. Niedrauer,
rivers and canals can be filled to
capacity by local rains without
any discharge from the lake. That
can impede releases from the
lake.
Because of the range of vari-
ables modern developments
have made, water managers have
developed a computer simula-
tor with input from scientists of
various disciplines into its devel-
opment. That way, the effect of
many variables on the system can
be tested very quickly. Mr. Nie-
drauer demonstrated the model
for the panel.
"For instance, the model
shows here, that discharge from
rains over the City of Stuart and-
the north fork of the St. Lucie Riv-
er took the model over the safety
envelope. Water managers get
penalized for'that, at least in the
press," he joked.
Ray Judah commented that
more water should go south. Mr.
Niedrauer commented that the


summit was about today's sys-
tem, not the future system.
"The purpose of today's meet-
ing is to really, really understand
the tools water management
has available, not what might be
available later on," said modera-
tor Janice Fleischer.
There are constraints to the
south. The operating guidelines
require that there be room in the
water management areas and in
the canals to the south. Earlier in
the summit, the point was made
that only 14 percent of the drain-
age capacity is to the south, while
86 percent goes east and west.
Then the panel members had
the opportunity to make decisions
in a hypothetical situation shown
on the computer model and to
actually see how decisions affect
the parts of the water manage-
ment system "I wondered where
you guys keep the dice," cracked
J.P. Sasser, mayor of Pahokee,
representing the lakeside towns.
"When the crystal ball is out
being polished, we get out the
dice," joked back Mr. Neidrauer.
It went around the table, one
member at a time, decision upon
decision. Each decision affecting
the next and compared with the
regulation schedule, right there
on an ever-changing colored
graph..
This group will continue to
meet to give a heightened aware-
ness of where the area is, how de-
cisions are being made and how
one small decision may affect a
huge portion of the region.
Each panel member gave
comments about the summit and
future meetings.

el together a minimum of once


Back-to-school tax holiday to begin


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Retail Federation (FRF) is predict-
ing strong sales during Florida's
eighth back-to-school sales tax
holiday from Aug. 4-13, an annual
tradition that helps save Florida
families millions of dollars a year.
State and local sales tax will not be
collected on clothing and related
items with a sales price of $50 or
less, books with a sales price of
$50 or less and school supplies


with a sales price of $10 or less.
According to the Federation of
Tax Administrators (FTA), a non-
profit organization representing
state tax agencies, Florida is one
of only 14 states and the District
of Columbia that observe a back-
to-school sales tax holiday and the
only state whose holiday spans two
weekends.
"FRF encourages all Floridians
to take advantage of the savings
available during the sales tax holi-


day. Families looking for a way
to make their dollars go further
should make the most of this op-
portunity," said Rick McAllister,
FRF president and CEO.
Nationwide, spending on elec-
tronics is expected to be one of the
fastest growing categories of back-
to-school sales. Rep. Marti Coley,
R-Marianna, a sponsor of previous
sales tax holiday bills, said she
would like to see the Legislature
consider adding some computers


and accessories to future sales tax
holidays as a way to help lower in-
come families purchase computers
for their children and bridge the
"digital divide."
If the Florida Legislature were
to expand the tax exemption dur-
ing the 2008 Legislative Session,
Florida would follow eight other
states that already exempt comput-
ers and related supplies during the
back-to-school sales tax holiday.

for input into a year-round water
conservation rule. This will be
vastly different from water restric-

Profile: Deputy 'Junior' Rivera


SOUTH BAY Juvencio 'Ju-
nior' Rivera is a South Bay resident
who is employed with the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO) as a Deputy Sheriff. Dep-
uty Sheriff Rivera, 29, was born
in Brownsville, Texas and raised
in the Glades area. He spent his
sophomore year at Glades Central
High School but moved back to
Texas and graduated from Porter
High School in Brownsville. Now,
the.deputy is living his dream to
become a law enforcement offi-
cer.

Question: Where did you get
your nickname from?
Answer: My family and friends
gave it to me. I am a junior my
dad's name is the same as mine.
The family had so much love
for me; it was special to me and
that's how the name stuck. Ev-
erybody in the community knows
me by the name 'Junior' and I am
comfortable with it.

Question: Your first name is
unique. What does it mean?
Answer: 1 don't know what it
stands for. One of my great uncles
had the name in Mexico and he
gave it my dad. Then my dad gave
it to me.

Question: What do you look
forward to each day?
Answer: Spending time with
family, my parents, my brother
and two kids; my daughter, Yu-
liana, who is 8 months old and
my 4-year-old son, whose name
is Johnathan. My mom's name
is Maria Rivera and my brother's
name is Aaron Rivera.

Question: When did you join


INI/Naji Tobias
Juvencio Rivera.
the PBSO? What steps did you
take to get there?
Answer: I joined Dec. 1,
2005. When the PBSO took over
the City of South Bay, basically
they took me and the rest of the
employees of the police depart-
ment.

Question: What did you do
prior to joining the PBSO?
Answer: I was a police officer
for the City of South Bay. I started
in 2002 as a reserve officer there
and approximately six months
later, I became a full-time law en-
forcement officer.

Question: Looking back,
how do you think being a deputy
has changed your life?
Answer: It's changed my life
a lot; everywhere I go, everybody
knows me in the whole commu-
nity. They'll be like, 'Hey, Junior.'
I was known to the Hispanic
community before I became an
officer; now, the entire Hispanic
community looks up to me when
I achieve something high and not
only that, every community looks
up to me for what I have done.

Question: What do you con-
sider the most memorable mo-


ment of your life?
Answer: The times that my
son and daughter were born.
You can't forget those mo-
ments; they're the best moments
- they're priceless.

Question: Do you have any
past regrets in your life? If so,
how has that affected you?
Answer: I don't have past
regrets. I won't change nothing
in my life; I'll keep it how it is.
If I went through the life how it
is, I won't change it because it's
meant to be the way it is and it
teaches me what I know in life.
It's true.

Question: What are some
things that irk you?
Answer: Crimes against kids.
It really bothers me that people
could hurt children who can't
defend themselves. You know, I
look at kids like they're my own;
I like to protect them like they're
my own.

Question: What do you hold
dear to your heart?
Answer: My son, Johnathan,
the things that he does, it brings
me a lot of joy. I could never
get mad at him for anything he
does. He brings my spirit up and
my daughter, when I look at her
and hold her high, her eyes and
her smile makes me stronger to
progress in the future for them.
They are my pride and joy.

Question: What are your tal-
ents and hobbies?
Answer: Well, I love the Cobra
Mustang vehicle. I love the look,
keeping up with their design and
performance. Hobbies going


to the movies with my son. He
loves movies. I love to dance to
all kinds of music. I love playing
football, basketball, baseball, es-
pecially soccer. I like to keep up
with my Mexican teams. When I
get a chance, I like to play bas-
ketball with my brother and he
beats me all the time (Laughs).
It's rare when I play football and
baseball, though. I love to cook; I
cook all types of Mexican, Italian,
Centro American and Chinese
food.

Question: Who is the great-
est inspiration in your life?
Answer: My father and es-
pecially my mother. She worked
hard in raising us but I look
back at my life and I achieved
my dreams because of her. She
was there to watch my back and
guide me through good and bad.
My mom was tough on us; she
wouldn't let us do a lot of things
but when I look back, I'm glad
she didn't. My father is a hard
working man; he worked hard
to provide for his family to have a
better future and he still does. He
taught me that you could achieve
anything you want in life if you
work hard. I love my family.

Question: What advice do
you have for today's youth?
Answer: Stay in school and
follow your dreams. Get your
high school diploma and go to
college. I tell the kids to be better
than the next person that's the
best advice I think you could give
somebody.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
- Please drive carefully espe-
cially during the week of Aug. 4
- 11. This is the week of the na-
tional "Stop Red Light Running
Week" which will prevent crashes,
reduce injuries, save lives and edu-
cate drivers on the dangers of red
light running.
In Florida, over 40 percent of
all traffic deaths and injuries oc-
curred in intersections; many were
caused by red light running, driver
distractions, and failure to yield the
right of way.
Last year, Florida's law enforce-
ment issued more than 300,000
tickets for red light running.
What is red light running?
It is a violation that occurs when a
driver enters an intersection some
time after the signal light has
turned red.
Do you know the law?
1. When you approach a red
light, stop before the stop bar or
crosswalk, which ever is closer to
you.
2. Do not "creep" into the inter-


section while waiting.
3. Where making a right turn on
red, you must first:
a. Come to a full stop.
b. Yield to all pedestrians and
traffic with a green light.
4. You must come to a full stop
and yield to any visually impaired
pedestrian with a white/red cane
or guide dog that is trying to cross
the road.
5. If the traffic signal is inop-
erative, treat the intersection like a
four-way stop.
6. 'Two (2) convictions for red
light running within 12 months
will automatically require driv-
ers to attend driver improvement
school.
Extra enforcement will be out
ard about during this time period,
so please pass the word along that
there will be zero tolerance by
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office for Red Light Running.
Help the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office keep you and your
family safe stop red light run-
ning!

Breastfeeding advocacy embraced by Wellington Regional


PALM BEACH COUNTY Im-
mediate initiation of breastfeed-
ing following delivery and exclu-
sive breastfeeding for the next six
months can save more than one
million babies annually world-
wide. This is the theme chosen by
the World Alliance for Breastfeed-
ing Action (WABA) in recognition
of 2007 World Breastfeeding Week.
The theme highlights the impor-
tance of promoting conditions
conducive to breastfeeding begin-
ning with the first hour of birth.


"In a world where more than
10 million children die before
their first birthday due to prevent-
able causes and where malnutri-
tion is still rampant and associat-
ed with over half of all childhood
deaths, there is simply no time
to waste. Let's start with the first
hour," said Dr. Margaret Chan,
Director General of World Health
Organization.
Immediate skin-to-skin con-
tact of mother and baby is an.
important factor for successful


initiation of breastfeeding, as it re-
stores their connection following
birth. This keeps the baby appro-
priately warm, induces maternal
oxytocin release and ensures that
baby receives colostrum during
the first feedings.
"We are. proud to support
World Breastfeeding Week at Wel-
lington Regional Medical Center,"
said Barbara Nash-Glassman, RN,
Director of the Centre for Fam-
ily Beginnings. We believe in the
healthy advantages that breast-


feeding offers to mothers as well
as babies. This is an opportunity
to continue educating the com-
munity and staff about the impor-
tance of breastfeeding".
Wellington Regional Medi-
cal Center will celebrate World
Breastfeeding Week with educa-
tional exhibits placed throughout
the hospital. Special gift bags will
be presented to moms delivering
this week along with the chance
to win a breast pump for one
mom each day.


The Centre for Family Begin-
nings provides encouragement
and support to help new moms
reach their breastfeeding goals.
The Lactation Center at Wel-
lington is staffed by three Inter-
national Board Certified Lacta-
tion Consultants (IBCLCs) who
visit mothers during their hospital
stay. They also provide outpatient
consultation and offer a variety
of manual and electric breast
pumps for purchase or rent and
will gladly assist in choosing a
pump suitable for your needs. In


addition, the Lactation Center of-
fers an array of information and
breastfeeding supplies.
A monthly group meeting at
the hospital, The Lactation Tea
and Support Group, provides on-
going support to breastfeeding
moms. Another support group,
La Lechie League of Palm Beach
County also meets at the facility.
For an appointment or more
information, please call (561)
798-8664 or visit our website at
www.wellingtonregional.com/

Is aging affecting


your memory?


A common problem asso-
ciated with getting older is the
memory loss most of seem to
encounter. Forget a couple
of names or misplace those
car keys again and we begin
to think it's a first sign of Al-
zheimer's and that we'll soon
be forgetting everything.
While Alzheimer's and other
types of dementia are certainly
very real problems, the reality
is that gradual, mild memory
loss is usually just a part of the
normal aging process, although
not one that we have to simply
sit back and accept. In reality,
there are many things that can
be done to maintain and im-
prove your memory: It's simply
untrue that every elderly person
is going to have a poor mem-
ory, or that it's impossible for
an older person to learn new
things.
For most of us, memory
decline is usually very gradual,
generally not even noticeable
before the age of 70. And it
doesn't occur in the same way
for everyone, since loss of
memory can be affected by our
physical health, lifestyle habits
and even level of education.
Most importantly, there are
things we can do to help over-
come the natural weakening of
memory that may occur as we
age.
One important step is to keep
an active mind. Just because
you are older does not mean
iyou.can't learn something new,
like playing chess, how to cook,
or any of dozens of other new
activities that get you actively
using your mind.
Activities that engage your
mind and make you think all


The

Counseling

Corner
From the American
Counseling Association

help improve memory. When
you read a book or go to a mov-
ie, and then discuss with friends
its details, themes and what did
or didn't work, you're keeping
your mind active and forcing
your memory to work.
If memory loss is worrying
you, check your library or book-
store for books with suggestions
for improving memory. Some
provide tips on how to organize
materials and information to
make remembering easier. Oth-
ers offer strategies, training sug-
gestions and practice sessions
to help improve memory skills.
The bottom line is a that some
memory loss as we age is per-
fectly normal, not necessarily a
sign of serious mental deterio-
ration.
But if you are worried
that your memory problems
seem more serious, talk to
a counseling professional or
your family physician. They
can offer tests to help pin-
point any possible problems.

Grant to help build detoxification center


The Claiborne and Ned Foulds
Foundation has awarded a
$50,000 grant to Southwest Flori-
da Addiction Services (SWFAS) in
support of its capital campaign to
build a new Detoxification Center
and Outpatient Treatment Facility
that will serve Glades, Hendry,
Lee and Charlotte counties.
The grant will be used to help
equip the facility's new kitchen,
which will be named in honor of
Claiborne and Ned Foulds.
"We are very grateful to the
Advisory Board of the Foulds
Foundation for recognizing the
importance of providing treat-
ment for residents with the
chronic disease of addiction,
which impacts one in five people
in our community," said SWFAS
CEO Kevin B. Lewis.
SWFAS now has raised more
than $5.3 million toward the $9.5
million cost of the new facil-
ity. Other major gifts have been
received from the Lee County
Commission, State Housing Ini-
tiatives Program (SHIP), U.. S.
Department of Health & Human
Services, Southwest Florida Com-
munity Foundation, Lee Memo-
rial Health System, and Gannett
Foundation.
"There isn't a day that passes
that we aren't forced to turn away
people in need of immediate de-
toxification because there are no
beds available," Mr. Lewis said.
"Each day the headlines tell the
stories of tragedies associated
with untreated substance use dis-
orders, and these consequences
will continue until we can 're-
spond to this unmet need."


While the population at risk
has nearly tripled in the past 20
years, Mr. Lewis said the number
of detox beds has decreased from
28 beds in 1984 to 25 beds in
2007, due to the lack of resources
to treat this chronic disease.
"Families need a place to turn
in times of crisis," Mr. Lewis said.
"The Board of Directors is acutely
aware of this need and is commit-
ted to raising the money needed
to build a new facility."
The new 40-bed Detoxification
Center will be built on land in Fort
Myers on Evans Avenue donated
by the City of Fort Myers under
a long-term lease. The four-acre
parcel formerly was the home of
the Fort Myers Recreation Center
adjacent to Southwest Regional
Medical 'Center.
The planned 44,000 square
foot facility also will include room
for outpatient counseling and
prevention offices now located
on McGregor Boulevard as well
as administrative staff.
The SWFAS Board of Directors
and Capital Campaign Cabinet
currently are requesting funding
from local individuals, business-
es, and foundations to help with
the project.
SWFAS hopes to break ground
later this year with completion
one year later.
SWFAS is the largest and old-
est comprehensive substance
abuse treatment and prevention
program in Southwest Florida,
serving 6,000 people per year
from ages 9 to 90 in Glades, Hen-
dry, Lee and Charlotte counties.
SWFAS offers outpatient and resi-


dential programs for both adults
.and youngsters from eight loca-
tions in Southwest Florida. Fees
are charged on a sliding scale,
based on family income. In many
cases, private insurance is ac-
cepted. SWFAS is a United Way
agency.


For more information about
the SWFAS capital campaign or to
make a gift to SWFAS, call Lewis
at 278-7595, ext. 700. For more
information about the Claiborne
and Ned Foulds Foundation, call

Safe sitters
On Friday, July 13, David McClusky and Annabelle Ro-
driguez (R.N.), from Hendry Regional Medical Center,
instructed a Safe Sitter Class in the hospital conference
room. A total of 15 students, ranging in age from 11-13,
joined the class. The comprehensive, educational session
included topics such as clearing obstructed airways of
children (and other emergency situations), learning toi-
letry skills, stranger/outside intruder awareness, dealing
with unruly kids, babysitting professionalism, conducting
interviews with parents/guardians, and more. Thanks to
David and Annabelle, the students left with new perspec-
tives of babysitting.


Tomatoes inspire recipes


Once upon a time, I was quite
the gardener, living on a lovely
little farm in the foothills in North
Carolina. I started to feel sorry for
myself back in April-missing out
on all the homegrown veggies.
But rebound back with an idea
to start a little container garden
out on my deck this year. I am
,one happy camper with all my to-
matoes and basil growing in their
containers.
I am also the lucky recipient
of neighbors with gardens! Now
is the time to give away the over
abundance of what you just can't
use! We are on the receiving
end of that this year and yester-
day evening picked and snapped
two huge baskets of green beans
at my neighbor Connie's house'
Our reward? Green beans of
course, some squash and a few
tomatoes.
If there is one thing I know
about tomatoes, it is they are pro-
lific. Right after the first few get
ripe, the rest start to get ripe and
before you know it, you're trying
to survive the attack of the killer
tomatoes!
Try this one out today!

SHorse owners should update vaccinations


TALLHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging horse owners to
remember to vaccinate their ani-
mals against Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis and West Nile Virus in
the wake of Centers for Disease
Control warnings about a poten-
tial West Nile epidemic. He is also
reminding people to take precau-
tions against mosquito bites.
The Centers for Disease Con-
trol says the number of human
West Nile Virus (WNV) cases in
the United States is nearly four
times higher than what it was this
time last year. The virus, carried
by mosquitoes, can cause flu-like
symptoms in people and in hors-
es and can be fatal in the equine


population. Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis (EEE) is also often fatal
in horses.
So far, Florida has not been im-
pacted by the rise in arbovirus ac-
tivity seen elsewhere. In fact, there
have been no reported cases of
West Nile Virus in horses and only
13 Eastern Equine Encephalitis
cases in horses. No people have
been infected at all in Florida.
Commissioner Bronson wants
that trend to continue.
"I believe people are heeding
the warnings to protect them-
selves from mosquito bites and
that diligence among horse own-
ers to get their animals vaccinated
has resulted in Florida's low num-
bers," Mr. Bronson said. "Florida
also has some very effective mos-


quito control districts to keep the
mosquito populations down. But
it's important that people not get
complacent considering what we
are seeing elsewhere in the na-
tion."
Horse owners are urged to
check with their veterinarian to
make sure their animals have re-
ceived current vaccinations and
booster shots against WNV and
EEE, and that these shots are kept
up to date.
Mr. Bronson says Floridians
and visitors can protect them-
selves against mosquito-borne
disease by following a few simple
steps:
Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mosquitoes
are most active.


Wear light-colored, long-
sleeved shirts and long pants to
cover skin and reduce the chance
of being bitten when outside be-
tween dusk and dawn;
Eliminate standing water in
yards, such as in birdbaths, kid-
die pools, old tires and other re-
ceptacles, as stagnant water is
an excellent breeding ground for
mosquitoes;
Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
repellent;
Keep window screens in
good repair; and,
Clean out rain gutters and
keep them unclogged to avoid
pockets of standing water.

Straight-shooter goes


to national event


HENDRY COUNTY Hendry
County Shooting Sports 4-H Club
member, Carter Butler of Felda,
attended the National 4-H Shoot-
ing Sports Competition in Rapid
City, S.D., accompanied by his
dad, Steve Butler. He was among
many members from Florida to
attend the event. Florida had in-
dividuals/teams competing in the
disciplines of air rifle, shotgun,
archery (recurve and compound),
.22 rifle, and hunting. Carter com-
peted on Florida's 4-H Air Rifle
team consisting of four 4-H mem-
bers across the state. Each indi-
vidual had to qualify to attend the
national event at the state compe-
tition held in March and April.
The team competed in the
National Standard Three-Position
Sporter Air Rifle Division consist-
ing of the prone, standing, and
kneeling positions. Each of the
team members were given 60
pellets shooting 20 pellets in each
position in a given time allotment.
The time limit is "onen fiinute
pre record shot prone, two min-
utes per record shot standing,
and 1.5 minutes per record shot
kneeling. The team placed eighth


out of 21 states.
Furthermore, the team com-
peted in the National Sporter Air
Rifle Silhouette Division consist-
ing of shooting at a 1/10 scale,
metallic silhouette: rams, turkeys,
pigs and chickens. Each silhou-
ette was shot at a different course
of fire: 10 chickens at 20 yards,
10 pigs at 30 yards, 10 turkeys at
36 yards, 10 rams at 45 yards in
banks of 5 targets and shooting
from left to right on the bank of
targets with a 15 second ready
time and 2.5 minutes firing time
for each bank of 5 targets. The
team took 16th out of 21 states.
Congratulations Carter for
your achievement at the National
Competition. Carter made many
new friends from many states,
and was proud to represent Hen-
dry County 4-H and Florida 4-H
at this event. Carter states "that
he is grateful for all the support
received from the Hendry County
Shooting Sports 4-H Club, family
and friends." Carter has already
begun planning for next year's
state competition to win a spot at
the 2008 National Competition to
be held in Nebraska.

SOUTH FLORIDA -- During a
three-day airlift, the South Florida
Water Management District this
week began transplanting 23 tons
of water-loving plants to revitalize
Florida's stormwater treatment
areas (STAs). The constructed
treatment wetlands use 'green
technology' to absorb harmful
nutrients and improve the quality
of water flowing into America's
Everglades.
The large-scale transplant-
ing is revitalizing specific areas
within the 6,700-acre STA 1-west,
the 9,000-acre STA 2 and STA 3/4,
which at nearly 17,000 acres is the
largest constructed wetland in the
world. As part of the $30,000 op-


eration, water managers are har-
vesting healthy batches of South-
ern Naiad, commonly referred to
as pondweed, from within the
STAs and moving the plants to ar-
eas where old plant life has died,
or construction and maintenance
work was recently finished.
After the pondweed is harvest-
ed, it is loaded into a large cargo
net and carried by helicopter to
a drop sp6t targeted with global
positioning system technology.
Hovering at about 500 feet, the
helicopter pilot releases the load
into very shallow waters. Known
as submerged aquatic vegeta-
tion because it grows at or below
the water's surface, pondweed


quickly re-establishes itself and
begins removing phosphorus
from water flowing into the treat-
ment areas.
District scientists and engi-
neers work constantly to main-
tain the appropriate balance of
plant life in the STAs, so the sys-.
tems can continue removing ex-
cess nutrients from water found
in stormwater runoff. These nutri-
ents, including phosphorus, flow
from farms, lawns, roadways and
other developed areas. STAs help
remove these nutrients by chan-
neling water through a system of
treatment cells filled with wetland
vegetation.
As part of its intensive sched-


ule to improve water quality in the
Everglades, the State of Florida is
operating more than 41,000 acres
of constructed wetlands. Last
year, the STAs combined treated
nearly 1.5 million acre-feet of wa-
ter and prevented 176 metric tons
of phosphorus from reaching the
Everglades.
Stormwater treatment areas
have also become prime loca-
tions for native wildlife. Their vast,
shallow waters and rich plant life
attract a wide variety of birds and
fish, as well as alligators, wild
hogs and deer. For more informa-
tion on Everglades' restoration,

Renewable development encouraged by PSC


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
recently hosted an informational
workshop to gain more informa-
tion about establishing a renew-
able portfolio standard (RPS).
Government, utility and industry
representatives also identified
some of the likely impacts on
Florida's economy and consum-
ers from implementing an RPS.
A renewable portfolio stan-
dard is a public policy approach
aimed at encouraging renewable
development through the gen-


elation of a certain amount of
power from renewable sources.
Currently, Florida uses renewable
resources like solar, municipal
waste, biomass and landfill gas
for two to three percent of its total
energy supply.
"Increasing the use of renew-
able sources will further diversify
Florida's generation mix," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
"Establishing a renewable port-
folio standard will help advance
the development of alternative
energy sources in Florida."


Discussion revolved around
defining a renewable portfo-
lio standard and the renewable
generation resources that should
qualify toward meeting a state
RPS. Several speakers also ad-
dressed possible impacts on Flor-
ida's economy and consumers
from an RPS.
In his recent executive order,
Governor Crist requested that the
PSC initiate rulemaking, by Sept.
1, to require utilities to produce at
least 20 percent of their electric-
ity from renewable sources. The


governor's order placed an em-
phasis on solar and wind energy.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable'manner. The PSC ex-
ercises regulatory authority over
utilities in the areas of rate base/
economic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability and service.

Rate century-old $20 gold coin returned


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink
announced today the return of a
1907 gold coin with an estimat-
ed value between $25,000 and
$90,000 to the daughter of the
late Tere.Claiborne. Representa-
tives of the state's Unclaimed
Property program presented the
coin Thursday to Phyllis Childers
of Palm Beach County.
"I am pleased to be able to re-
unite this family with this beauti-
ful historical heirloom," said CFO
Sink who oversees the Depart-
ment of Financial Services and
the Bureau of Unclaimed Prop-
erty (Bureau).
The early twentieth century
collectible is a 1907 Saint Gaud-
ens Double Eagle "High-Relief"
$20 gold coin. The term "High-Re-
lief" refers to the extreme height
that images are raised above the
background of the coin, and only
12,367 coins were made due to
the extreme difficulty of produc-
tion. One of the five most sought-
after coins in America, President
Theodore Roosevelt commis-
sioned sculptor Augustus Saint-
Gaudens for the design in 1906.
The gold coin belonged to
Phyllis Childers' mother, Tere Clai-
borne, who passed away in 2000.
The family searched for years,
but was unable to find the coin,
which Mrs. Claiborne had placed
in a safe deposit box on her way
to a bridge game. Phyllis Childers
called the coin the "cornerstone
of the family," as it is believed that
President Theodore Roosevelt
personally gave the coin to Phyl-
lis' great-great-grandfather, Man-
uel Amador Guerrero, who was


the first president of Panama from
February 1904 to October 1908.
The Bureau of Unclaimed Prop-
erty currently holds unclaimed
property accounts valued at more
than $1 billion, mostly from dor-
mant accounts in financial in-
stitutions, insurance and utility
companies, securities and trust
holdings. Since the program's in-
ception 46 years ago, the Bureau
has successfully reunited owners
with more than $1 billion in un-
claimed property.
Currently there are 405,415
Unclaimed Property accounts
in Palm Beach County totaling
$72,060,579.80 Unclaimed prop-
erty can be claimed for free at
any time by the rightful owners
or heirs by logging on to www.
fltreasurehunt.org or by calling
the Bureau at 1-88-VALUABLE.
Until claimed, the unclaimed
funds are transferred to the state's
School Trust Fund to benefit pub-
lic schools. Since the program's
inception in 1961, more than $1.5
billion has been transferred to the
fund.
The Bureau also receives items
that have been abandoned in safe
deposit boxes for at least three
years and spends up to two years
searching for the rightful own-
ers or heirs. The Bureau has had
tremendous success in finding
owners. In the past year alone,
the Bureau returned a record
255,000 accounts valued at more
than $171 million. But when
owners or heirs cannot be found,
the safe deposit box contents are
auctioned While the proceeds
from the auctioned items are
transferred to the state's Public


School Trust Fund, the money is
held in the original owner's name
and can be claimed for free at any
time.
CFO Sink announced that the
Bureau will hold an auction this
year in Orlando on Saturday, Au-
gust 4, in the Florida Hotel and
Conference Center at the Florida
Mall. The auction will offer more
than 40,000 items including col-
lectibles, jewelry, and historic
coins. A preview of auction items
will be held on Friday, August 3,
2007, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m.
The auction will be held on Satur-
day, August 4, from 10 a.m. until
all items are sold. Specific items
up for sale include an un-circu-
lated 1882 silver dollar, baseballs
autographed by Hank Aaron and
Don Larsen, diamond jewelry,
Spanish colonial silver coins, a
$500 bill and a platinum ring with
a 17 ct. natural sapphire.
Participation is open to all Flo-
ridians. To participate in the pre-
view and auction, potential bid-
ders will be required to register
with the auctioneer and provide a
valid ID with current address and
refundable $100 cash deposit that
can also be applied to any pur-
chases. Most bank debit cards are
permitted for payment of the $100
deposit. Payments for purchases
must be made with cash, travel-
er's check, most bank debit cards,
or cashiers check made payable
to Fisher Auction Co. For addition-
al information on terms for par-
ticipating, please visit http://www.

Orders issued to combat climate change


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS Gov.
Crist has signed three executive
orders to combat the threat of
global climate change. The or-
ders call for actions to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions within
Florida, reduce emissions within
Florida state government and to
appoint a governor's action team
on energy and climate change.
Gov. Crist signed the orders at the
conclusion of the Serve to Pre-
serve Florida Summit on Global
Climate Change held in Miami
July 12-13. The Nature Conser-
vancy helped sponsor the summit
which brought together policy
makers, scientists and business
leaders to help Florida develop
policies to reduce carbon emis-
sions. Speaker after speaker at the
summit emphasized that we have
to save nature to save ourselves.
"The emission cuts and effi-


ciency standards set forth in the
governor's executive orders are
welcome for the long term and
must be combined with the pro-
tection of natural areas we cur-
rently have, which Florida.has a
great history of doing through the
Florida Forever program." said
Jeff Danter, director of the Nature
Conservancy's Florida Chapter.
"We look forward to helping
implement the actions set forth in
the governor's executive orders
and to developing a successor
program to Florida Forever to pro-
tect natural areas, our water sup-
ply and our Florida way of life."
The Serve to Preserve Flor-
ida Summit on Global Climate
Change brought together policy
makers, academics, scientists, en-
vironmentalists and the business
community to discuss the im-
pact of climate change in Florida.


These experts will help develop
best practices related to alterna-
tive fuels and emission standards.
The group's strongest recom-
mendations will help shape pro-
cedures for state agencies and
future legislation. For more infor-
mation, visit http://www.myflori-

1U Cracker Hiory--nmore than onethird century ag


A Cracker History-more than one-third century ago


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
Lawrence Will has gone down
in Florida history for his writings
on the state's history in various
areas.
It could be up for bets as to
which book of his has garnered
the most attention and admira-
tion, The "Cracker History" of
Okeechobee or Okeechobee
"Hurricane."
For those who care about Flor-
ida, both these books are a must.
Cracker History was first pub-
lished a third of a century ago, or
in 1964, and still there are those
who are hungry for his "cracker"
style of writing and the fact that
he "lived" what he has written
about.
In his acknowledgements, Mr.
Will wrote: "Much of the infor-
mation in this book was obtained
from the people themselves who


lived around the lake.
For a considerable period of
time, the author operated freight,
passenger and tow boats, as well
as floating dredges, in all parts of
the lake and the Everglades, thus
enabling him to gain a first hand
knowledge of the people and the
development during those early
days."
His first chapter is titled "A
Heck Of A Frontier," in which
he writes, "If you can pull your-
self away from that dad blamed
television, maybe I can spin you
some yarns as good as what you
are seeing between commer-
cials, except that what I'm fixing
to tell you really happened. Folks
have said that the Everglades and
Lake Okeechobee were the last
frontier in the United States, and
I reckon that may be true, but it
was the dad blamdest. frontier
you ever heard tell of. It was a
heap different from what my old


grand daddy ran into out west.
Instead of mountains and prai-
ries it was a water frontier with
boats and dredges, gator hunting
and catfishing. Instead of prairie
schooners we had steam boats,
and in place of herds of cattle we
had schools of catfish. But we
had our share of wild Indians and
outlaws, eastern city dudes and
squatters, too. Our pony express
was a six-mile-an-hour mail boat
and our buffalo looked a heap
like scaly backed alligators. This
Glades country now is mostly
one big farm and cattle ranch and
cane field, with towns and cities
and all the discomforts of civiliza-
tion, such as traffic cops and tax
collectors and other modern in-
conveniences. But it wasn't many
years ago when it was about the
wildest and most inaccessible re-
gion in the whole United States of
America!"
If you've ever wondered where


towns or small settlements are
- or were around the lake, you
have only to turn to the inside
cover and first page of
Cracker History where there
is an excellent and easy-to-read
map. In the opening pages there
is also a full page of Cracker Dia-
lect Translations.
For instance: "heap" means a
great deal," tote" to carry, "rile"
means to anger, "ary" means
ever, "plumb" means all the way,
and "passel" means a group, or a
collection.
And so goes Lawrence Wills'
Cracker History, a book about
America's last frontier, its people,
their hopes and frustrations, carv-
ing out a civilization on the shore
of the largest lake within the bor-
ders of the United States. It's his-
tory, true and authentic, written
in Okeechobee dialect by a man
who lived through half a century
of taming the wilderness and


Enjoy 'the good ole summertime'


who at the time of the writing
could recall most of the pioneers
of that time.
Then men came in ever-in-
creasing numbers and gradually
the lake was subdued, but not
without momentous battles. Na-
ture fought back, and one
natural event cost over 2,000
lives, a stunning upset for the
forces of man, one of many vio-
lent battles. The white man won
this war eventually and set up his


cities as monuments of victory.
How all this was accomplished
is fabulous reading.
"Cracker History" is over 325
pages, "antique" pictures, soft-
back.

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
The first full month of sum-
mer is July. It is a bold and bril-
liant slice of summertime when
the sun is highest in the Northern
Hemisphere.
When Julius Caesar readjust-
ed the calendar, moving the first
of the year from March 1 to Jan.
1, he named this seventh month
(Julius) for himself and gave it 31
days.
Although July is considered
one of the hottest months in, the
year, it is also one of the most col-
orful, from extraordinary splashes
of glamorous color in saucer-size
hibiscus to the shining golden
shower trees whose graceful lac-
ey limbs shimmer all about even
without a breeze.
And crape myrtle, both va-
rieties the one that's simply
known as the old-fashioned kind
(Lagersroemia indica) and the
exotic Queen Crape Myrtle (La-
gerstroemia speciosa) whose
clusters of blooms are enormous.
While both plants belong to the
family of Lythraceae they hale
from different parts of the world.
Lagersroemia indica, in striking
shades of red, pink, purple and
__ white, is native to Southern Asia
and Australia, while Lagerstro-
emia speciosa calls India and the
East Indies home and boasts all
sorts of shades of pink to purple
and red and white.
Both varieties stay in bloom
for weeks and weeks requiring
no care whatsoever once they
become established in the land-
scape. While the Queen Myrtle
has by far the biggest clusters of
curly blossoms, it is somewhat
tender as regards cold tempera-
tures, consequently as a safety
precaution, try to find a spot
that's protected for the Queen.
Almost any location that won't be
subjected to harsh cold winds in
case of a freeze will do.
Generally the south side of
a building or the south side of
a hedge row is good. In other
words, almost anything that will
serve as a blocking agent to pre-
vent cold winds from getting to


the plant can save as a cold pro-
tector or at least minimize cold
damage. And, in case the limbs
do fall prey to a freeze, wait until
new growth begins to show on
lower parts, then prune back to
healthy, green wood. The older
the plant, that is, the more es-
tablished it is, the less likely it is
to freeze. Although crape myrtle
(both varieties) is not generally
listed as a Xeric plant, there are
those who believe it should be
and I agree. This high summer
bloomer is highly drought toler-
ant, it's happy in a wide variety of
soils, however its salt tolerance is
considered low, it has no environ-
mental problems, and its rate of
growth is medium thus the plants
will not outgrow their allotted
space quickly. Zones 7-10B are
recommended for Lagerstroemia
indict, while Zones 10B-11 are
recommended for Lagerstroemia
speciosa.
There's another extraordinary
beauty this time of year that just
happens to be the chosen flower
of Muse in Glades County. One
upward look along many roads in
the land of flowers, will instantly
reveal-that the loblolly bay is now
heralding this warm, sunny sev-
enth month with glistening white
blooms nestled in waxy evergreen
leaves on trees as tall as forty-five
feet. This regal, handsome mem-
ber of the Theaceae family, a na-
tive of Southeastern United States,
grows most happily in acid soils
near wet areas.
Since the loblolly's light re-
quirement is high, if planted in
shade it will bloom only spar-
ingly if at all. Because their toler-
ance to drought is low, the most
specimen loblolly bays are found
growing alongside wetlands
and swamps, almost as a frame,
where they have ample water
but do not actually grow in wa-
ter. And being on the perimeter
of these naturally wet areas they
get the bright light they must have
to thrive and bloom. Loblolly
bays are medium to slow grow-
ing, thus fully mature trees, some
35 to 45 feet in height are usually
of considerable age. Their nutri-
tional requirements are medium


or average. With no human or
environmental hazards, loblolly
bays are highly desirable for wet
areas in zones 8-10A. However, to
plant them away from wet areas
is usually an exercise in futility as
well as the waste of a prized na-
tive tree. Not only do these trees
take to wet conditions, to grow
and thrive, they must have the
nutrients, etc. from layers and lay-
ers of leaf mold and natural com-
postto sustain a desirable state of
health.
Probably the most satisfac-
tory way of acquiring a loblolly
bay for your own landscape is to
find a nursery that has small seed-
lings as these trees are difficult to
move. Even when sold as B&B
plant material or even in contain-
ers, unless they are planted in an
ideal location, they probably will
not live very long.
From the ground looking up,
the pristine white loblolly flow-
ers are a striking contrast to the
waxy, leather-like leaves that
grow so thick that sky cannot be
seen through them. The petals
are slightly fringed with broadly
rounded tips turned up; the clus-
tered stamens are golden yellow.
Seldom are loblolly bays seen
growing singly, yet again, maybe
it's the exception that makes the
rule. Only this week, alongside
a young citrus grove, which of
course is framed with a retention
ditch, which is actually too big to
rightly be called a ditch, yet too
little to be called a canal, there
is one purely lovely, lone loblolly
bay, perfectly symmetrical with
its arms reaching high above the
grove within arm's length of the
orange trees.
It seemed as though the shin-
ing star-like blossoms all opened
at one time which, of course,
is not the case. And upon lean-
ing over the fence, since I could
hardly straddle the ditch-canal, I
could see as many buds, perfectly
round like miniature golf balls, as
blossoms.
But then, as I kept looking,
there was something else or was
I seeing things. In the top two or
three feet the blossoms were as
big as saucers! They were gleam-


ing, shimmering white in the early
hours just after first light.
After several minutes of lean-
ing even farther over the fence
and straining my eyes, I "came to
the party!" Those huge blossoms
were moonflowers, the vines hav-
ing climbed and wound around
the trunk of the tree to find the
light at the top.
What a grand sight at first light!
Plus a fragrance we'd give a lot to
bottle: Moonflowers and loblolly
bay blossoms on one tree at the
same time.
Sometimes the line is fine
between various zone maps for
Florida, much more so for this
southern most state than others.
Therefore, at times there is what
seems to be conflicting informa-
tion regarding where zones begin
and end.
The most finely detailed zone
and climate map I have seen is in

Many owners of a patch of ru-
ral land or "ranchette" or acreage
are new to farming (not to men-
tion life without city amenities)
and if you want too raise crops or
a small herd of livestock for prof-
it, this probably won't help you.
Go straight to the Agricultural Ex-
tension Service and http://small-
farms.ifas.ufl.edu/. They have
what you need.
If you want to raise a few
animals as a hobby or for family
consumption, read on! The best
thing you can do is educate your-
self! Educated owners mean bet-
ter rural living, better production,
healthier animals and a cleaner
environment.
Reach out to your county Agri-
cultural Extension Service.
We have a few tips to help your
thoughts about having your own
farm animals and we reach out to
the Ag Extension folks, too.
How much space will you
need here in Florida? Florida is
different than anywhere. Heat and
sun are problems. Cold and snow
are not. All pastures/pens need a
constant, repeat constant and
adequate supply of fresh water,
not buckets.
"Plan for rotational grazing,"
says Pat Hogue, Okeechobee
County Extension Agent.
"This means cross-fencing to
allow your animals to graze sev-
eral areas in turn. Have an orga-

them up to avoid prosecution. How animals are pastured makes all the difference.

like its getting eaten down or on a
regular schedule, you must move
your animals regularly," said
Agent Hogue. "The frequency in
any case, depends on the kind of
grasses, the amount of weeds in


the grass and the general condi-
tion. Improved pasture planted in
Bahia or Bermuda grass, fertilized
on schedule, rotated on schedule
will feed more animals than a
pasture with native grasses, or a
weedy one or one that has not
had soil testing to check Ph and

fertilizer spread."
"If weeds aren't too bad, you


can weed-eat a small place. If
they are thick, you may need to
spray with a herbicide that won't
harm your animal."
That is the basis for the num-
ber of acres per animal. Remem-
ber, supplemental feeding with
purchased feed and hay will be
necessary on most small places.
More in winter when the grass
doesn't grow.

conduct weekly assessment of
their students' progress to ensure
that student achieved success in
the classroom.
As a result, the percentage of
students meeting high standards
in reading, math, writing and sci-
ence were at 66, 82, 95 and 49
percent, respectively.
The minority rate at the el-


ementary school was 99 percent,
with 97 percent eligible for free or
reduced lunch.
"When you have great leader-
ship and a great staff, all kids can
learn," said Ms. Evans. "It's been
proven under all circumstances."
Ms. Evans remained grateful to
her staff.
"I'm so proud for the teachers,
staff, parents and the entire Belle
Glade community for having an
'A' school at Glade View," said Ms.
Evans. "It goes to show that hard


work pays off."
During the 2005-2006 school
year, the leadership team at the
elementary school came up with
a belief statement which says:
'Glade View Elementary School
believes that all students can
learn ... Students work harder
to get smarter ... Smarter is not
something you are ... Smarter is
what you can become.'
"Our belief has become a real-
ity," said Ms. Evans.

The mayor wishes the depart-
ing commissioner well.
"I would like to say that I'm
proud that Mr. McEntire is a friend
of mine," said Mayor Sasser.
"During his time as a commis-
sioner, he always put the city of
Pahokee first. He and his wife will
be missed."
Mr. McEntire also retired from
the Palm Beach County School
District after 30 years of teach-
ing, with 26 of those at Pahokee
Middle-Senior High School and
four years at Lake Shore Middle
School in Belle Glade.
Mr. McEntire taught health,
history, physical education and
science.
Throughout his time working
for the district, Mr. McEntire said
that he was happy to see students
who he taught in high school go
on to graduate and become at-
torneys, doctors and directors,
including Herbert Crawford, the
city's recreational director.
Mr. Crawford is one of least
15 city employees who had Mr.
McEntire as a teacher.
"Science wasn't one of my
strong areas but Mr. McEntire
made the class exciting and I
passed," said Mr. Crawford.



Coach

Curtis Cross was a state cham-
pion in the 110 meter hurdles and
finished second in the 300 'meter
hurdles, with times of 14.3 and
37.7 seconds, respectively.
Deonte Thompson won the
state championship in the 200
meter race with a time of 21.45
seconds. Many still believe that,
had Deonte not been disquali-
fied from the 100 meter race in
- the preliminary rounds due to a
false start, the Raiders \, wouldd have
earned their 10th state title.
Travis Benjamin placed sev-
enth in the long jump at 22 feet,
three inches and placed seventh
in the 100 meter finals, with a
time of 10.97 seconds.
Both the 4x100 and 4x400 relay
teams finished third, with times of
41.9 seconds and three minutes
and 21 seconds, respectively.
Brunarious finished fourth
in the 300 meter hurdles, with a
time of 39.2 seconds.
Coach McDonalds explained
how his athletes were able to
achieve success this past season.
"The first thing I instill in the
athletes is going over the rules
and regulations of the team," said
the boy's track coach. "Our num-
ber one priority is discipline."
One way the track athletes ex-
hibited that discipline was sprint-
ing up the Herbert Hoover Dike
and then jogging back down
about eight times during the be-
ginning of the season.
Also, for the first two weeks of
the season, they spent time in the

the construction of the estates
wouldn't begin until mid-March
2006.
But Mr. Kirschen said he
learned that Dominion, Inc.,
which owned the land that the
78-unit complex was to be built
on, filed for bankruptcy on Feb.
10, 2006.
Mr. Kirschen claims that Hotsy
Homes Development lost about
$500,000 in the developmental
process when Dominion, Inc.
went bankrupt. Hotsy Homes
hasn't been able to recover the
money lost since.
Dominion, Inc. was also re-
sponsible for constructing a de-
velopment in South Bay called
the South Bay Village, which also
fell through.
Shannon. J.Sagan represented
Mr. Ruiz and attempted to help
him recover his $15,000 deposit
after the project's construction
plans changed.
Earlier this year, Hotsy Homes
went in a different direction, offer-
ing to the public an opportunity to
purchase townhouses where Mr.
Ruiz said he had been promised
a house behind the hospital in
Belle Glade.
While plans were originally to
break ground on the property July
1, Mr. Kirschen said that a variety
of factors has forced.Hotsy Homes
to push back the groundbreaking


Lory and Gary McEntire.
Mr. McEntire's brightest mo-
ment at the school was as athletic
director, overseeing the school's
program during the school's first
state championship in 1989.
Mr. and Mrs. McEntire started
a Little League baseball team
when they moved to Pahokee in
1981. Mr. McEntire was the Little
League president and umpire for
10 years, while Mrs. McEntire op-
erated the concession stand.
Mrs. McEntire is also a retired
employee of the school district,
serving almost 30 years as an adult


weight room strengthening and
conditioning their bodies.
Each day, after working out
in the weight room, they started
the season out by jogging a mile.
As the season progressed, the
jogs increased to one-and-a-half
miles.
Once on the Glades Central
field, they worked on techniques
and fundamentals, according to
the head coach.
"I stress to them that warm-
ing up and stretching muscles
are very important because you
could easily pull your muscles
and tear your ligaments," said
Coach McDonald. "Pulling a mus-
cle can cost an athlete the season
to recover and tearing a ligament
puts you out for the rest of the
season."
Throughout the season, the
team worked on special drills
such as the 'Breakdown,' which
separates the sprinters from the
distance runners. For the eight
total drills, the athletes are timed
with a stopwatch, with a certain
time that must be achieved.
The 'Breakdown' was done
once a week, usually on a Mon-
day. The coach said he wanted his
athletes to be fresh as the week
progressed in preparation for the
track meets.
"Keeping the athletes in good
condition, eating properly and get-
ting their proper rest keeps their
mind strong because if the body
is tired, it's going to weaken the
mind," Coach McDonald said.
Now, for the summer months,
Coach McDonald is translating
his recipe for success to all high
school athletes and those who


ceremony until sometime in the
fall. He did not mention when
construction would begin.
When Hotsy Homes an-
nounced the proposed town-
house development earlier this
year, Mr. Ruiz said he was offered
by Mr. Kirschen a credit toward
purchasing a townhouse in the
amount of his $15,000 deposit.
But Mr. Ruiz wasn't buying
into the offer.
"When Hotsy Homes talked to
me, there was never any mention
of them building townhousess"
said Mr. Ruiz.. 'After finding out
Tarek was going to build town-
houses through the Planning De-
partment, I was betrayed."
All he wanted was his minhevi
back.
In a letter addressed to Mr.
Kirchner, the attorney wrote,
"Mr. Ruiz attempted to amicably
resolve this with you for a long
time now. According to him, you
have made numerous promises
throughout the past 14 months
only to give him false hopes."
Mr. Ruiz's understanding was
that he would get his money back
after a court proceeding related
to the development, regardless of
the outcome.
Since then, Mr. Ruiz claims
that he has not had his phone
calls returned, even after repeated
attempts.
Mr. Sagan said that he followed
up with another phone call to Mr.
Kirschen on April 3 and was told
by the CEO that he was 'in the
middle of doing something' and

education teacher at Glades Cen-
tral High School and a computer
technology operator at Pahokee
Middle-Senior High School.
"As far as my time in Pahokee,
it was a rewarding 26 years here,"
said Mr. McEntire. "My wife and I
really enjoyed working for the stu-
dents at the high school and the
community. The City of Pahokee
will always stay in our hearts and
prayers."

are at least 18 years old.
He is working at the Lake
Shore Recreational Center and
the Boys and Girls Club Gymna-
sium in Belle Glade as its coordi-
nator.
-This summer, athletes from
high schools throughout the
Glades area, college athletes and
some professional athletes, in-
cluding NFL star and Glades Cen-
tral alum Santonio Thomas, have
been coming to Mr. McDonald's
workout sessions.
The summer workouts began
on June 11 and will end on Aug.
18, according to J.D. Patrick, the
city's recreational director.
At the recreational center,
those who come out can enjoy
the weight room facility. Thread
walking machines and bicycles
are also readily available to pa-
trons, in addition to yoga, which
is available for the women.
The recreational center is open
Monday to Fridays from 12 to 8
p.m.
Also, at the Boys and Girls
Club gymnasium, basketball is
available for 16 to 45 year olds.
The gymnasium is opened during
the week from 6 to 8 p.m.
"Mainly, I like to run the sum-
mer recreational program be-
cause it keeps our kids off the
streets," said Coach McDonald.
"When they are finished in the
weight room and the gym, they
are so tired that all they want to
do is eat, shower and then go to
bed later on and get ready for the
next day."

would call back later on.
Mr. Sagan said that Mr.
Kirschen did not return his phone
calls again and hasn't heard, from
him since, either.
"I feel bad for Mr. Ruiz," said
Mr. Sagan. "We've been given the
runaround by Tarek. Tarek prom-
ised to pay Mr. Ruiz back and has
not come through with his word
over the last few months."
Mr. Kirschen, meanwhile, said
he has plans to write a $15,000
check to Mr. RUiz but not before
the ground is broken at the pro-
posed Hillsboro estates property.
Mr. Kirschen said that Mr. Ruiz
will either get the $15,000 or a lot
of his choosing.
"I told Mr. Ruiz that if he lost
money from Dominion, then he
would be credited with the mon-
ey for Hillsboro Estates," said Mr.
Kirschen. "I feel bad for him and I
personally want to help him out."
Still, Mr. Ruiz and his family
said they have been greatly affect-
ed by the experience.
"I made the mistake by not do-
ing research on this guy," said Mr.
Ruiz,
Mr. Ruiz offers some encour-
agement for those seeking to buy
a home in the future.
"Investigate everything, from
the courthouse and the Better
Business Bureau and pray that
you don't get screwed over," said
Mr. Ruiz. "This has been a night-
mare for me and my family. It has
taken its toll on us."

Those crazy ants are in our plants


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
Okeechobee County Extension
Director Pat Miller recently called
me while 1 was on vacation. He's
good about helping folks practice
a balance between work and fam-
ily, so I was a bit concerned when
he reported that a lady had called
desperate for help and he wasn't
sure what was going on.
The caller claimed that her en-
tire yard was crawling with ants --
millions of them. They had invad-
ed her place about a year ago and
had driven off all the imported fire
ants and "bull ants". And nothing
that she had tried seemed to be
working. (I said to myself, no way
those numbers are right and to
drive off fire ants? Right....)
Mr. Miller drove Livestock
Agent, Pat Hogue, our FYN Pro-
gram Assistant Angela and I to
the home near the Okeechobee
Civic Center. And sure enough,
the homeowner was right here
were ants EVERYWHERE!
The Earth was moving
I had never seen a massive in-
festation of ants like this in the US,
although I saw something close to
it in Costa Rica last spring. There
were trails leading everywhere:
across the lawn, under potted
plants, up into laurel oaks, along
side the house foundation, under
building slabs and even up into
the rafters of the pole barns.
Ants were moving very quickly
along trails. Standing still in any
spot on the property, if you looked
carefully, you would soon see the


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
ants moving along the ground. In
some cases the workers were car-
rying the whitish pupa from one
place to another. Their movement
was not the random motion that
is seen with typical crazy ants.
These creatures are golden to
reddish brown in color and are
about the size of the typical fire
ant. If they are disturbed, they
may bite, but it's a pinch they
do not sting. After feeding on
sweet sugar water, the ant's rear
portion of the abdomen will ap-
pear to be striped because it is
stretched out and full of food. (I
didn't know that ants could have
beer bellies!)
The homeowner had estab-
lished a daily routine of ants
spraying around porches and the
perimeter of the house every day.
The result was massive piles of
dead ants along the nooks and
crannies outside her home. These
piles would need sweeping from
sidewalks and patios. Calking
and replacing the weather-strip-
ping around doors and windows
seemed to help keep them out of
the house.
We asked the homeowner
when this problem seemed to
have started. She recalled that it
had been about a year. This was
about the same time that a nearby
construction project was started.
She reported thatthe neighboring


yard was also seriously infested.
After we left her property, we
drove down the street to the old
Okeechobee Civic Center, and
inspected that building and its
grounds. It was also crawling
with similar huge numbers of
ants in the same kinds of places
that were infested in our caller's
property. The day camp program
there was also under attack by
these creatures
Identification
key to management
We scooped up several sam-
ples of this mystery menace. They
were put into alcohol for delivery
to the UF/IFAS Insect Identifica-
tion Lab in Gainesville the follow-
ing day. I showed the sample to
Dr. Phil Koehler and his associ-
ates and described its behaviors
and history. A peek at the ant's,
anatomy and a comparison with
some of the colonies they main-
tain there at the Department of
Entomology, and we had our an-
swer.
The Caribbean Crazy Ant is
the proposed common name for
Paratrechina pubens, a non-na-
tive ant that has been seen in the
Miami area for 50 years. Recent
colonies in the port of Palm Beach
have appeared to have spread
into Martin and St. Lucie counties.
A question that we can not an-
swer is if construction equipment
from the coast brought some soil
residues with some of these ants
to Okeechobee.
What makes this ant so prolific
is that their colonies have several
hundred thousand individuals.


They appear to nest in several lo-
cations (called polydomous) and
have multiple queens (called po-
lygamous). These ants create one
big ant society, and drive off any
and all others. So that explains
why the homeowner has not seen
fire or bull ants for the past year -
but it's still not a desirable way to
get rid of those pesky fire ants!
Management options
We do not have any magic
silver bullets to use against the
Caribbean Crazy Ant. Until more
research is done we recommend
the use of contact residual insec-
ticides sprayed along active trails
and nest sites to reduce ant popu-
lations, followed a few days later
by sweet ant baits placed at nu-
merous locations along trails and
frequently replaced with fresh
bait. Dr. Koehler suggests the use
of granular insecticide baits la-
beled for general landscape use
with the active ingredient fipronil
[e.g. Over 'n Out Fire Ant Killer
Granules] or cyfluthrin [many
products have this ingredient].
Up near but still outside the
house, products with cyfluthrin,
bifenthrin, or permethrin may
give you relief from invasions of
these Crazies. Be careful not to
use products designed for out-
door use in indoor locations it's
just not safe to do so. And as with
the use of any pesticide, read and
follow all label directions first. So
remember, even when you are
desperately seeking relief from
such pesky critters, the label is
the law.


Ag commissioner praises farm bill


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson
and state agriculture, industry
leaders are praising Florida's con-
gressional delegation for their
hard work on the 2007 Farm Bill,
which they say will benefit Flori-
da's agriculture industry and con-
sumers alike.
The U.S. House of Represen-
tatives passed the Farm, Nutri-
tion and Bioenergy Act of 2007,
referred to as the Farm Bill after
several days of debate. Commis-
sioner Bronson says the bill in-
cludes provisions that will help
ensure Florida agriculture has the
tools it needs to remain a vibrant
contributor to the state's economy
and provides school children with
healthy, nutritious fruits and veg-
etables. The bill will be taken up
by the U.S. Senate in September.
"Congress has recognized the
importance to our economy of
specialty crops which make up 50
percent of all cash receipts," Mr.
Bronson said. "Given that Florida
is the second largest producer of
specialty crops in the country,
clearly we are extremely pleased
with the results."
Representatives of Florida's
agriculture industry joined Bron-
son in expressing support for the
bill.
"We're very pleased that the
House of Representative has rec-
ognized the importance of spe-
cialty crops and have designated
$1.7 billion in mandatory fund-
ing for important nutrition and
other programs that will benefit
not only our producers, but the
health and well-being of Ameri-
cans," said Mike Stuart, President
of the Florida Fruit and Vegetable
Association.
Michael W Sparks, Executive
Vice President/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual said, "Florida citrus
growers salute the U.S. House
of Representatives for passing
the 2007 Farm Bill. The funding
boost this Farm Bill will give cit-
rus greening research programs


"This is a great day for Florida agriculture. Never
before has a farm bill been as beneficial to our
state. Not only does the House passed farm bill
maintain a safety net for program crops but
includes an unprecedented amount of support for
fruit, vegetable and specialty crop production. I am
pleased the bill also strengthens our commitment to
conservation programs and encourages renewable
energy initiatives."
-John Hoblick,
President of the Florida Farm Bureau


offers hope that we can unearth
a scientific solution to the insidi-
ous disease which is threatening
the very foundation of our $9 bil-
lion industry. Research is already
in the pipeline and it is essential
that it continues unabated. We
will continue to work hard in the
coming months to ensure the
U.S. Senate passes a similar ver-
sion of this bill."
"This is a great day for Florida
agriculture. Never before has a
farm bill been as beneficial to our
state. Not only does the House
passed farm bill maintain a safety

cludes an unprecedented amount
of support for fruit, vegetable and
specialty crop production. I am
pleased the bill also strengthens
our commitment to conservation
programs and encourages renew-
able energy initiatives," said John
Hoblick, President of the Florida
Farm Bureau.
Executive Vice President of
The Florida Nursery, Growers and
Landscape Association (FNGLA),
Ben Bolusky, also praised the bill
saying, "We applaud the U.S.
House of Representatives for its
passage of the Farm Bill. It gives
long overdue recognition to the
major economic role played by
nursery and other leading spe-
cialty crops in American agricul-
ture. What is most meaningful to
Florida's nursery industry is the
Farm Bill's landmark and wel-


come emphasis on specialty crop
research, pests and diseases, risk
management and conservation.
FNGLA looks forward to working
with the U.S. Senate to ensure the
very best Farm Bill for Florida's
specialty crop industries."
Executive Vice President of
the Florida Sugar Cane League,
Dalton Yancey remarked, "Flori-
da's citizens will benefit from the
passage of this Farm Bill which
creates billions of dollars of eco-
nomic impact to the State from
the sale of agricultural products.
Agriculture is an important con-
tributor to Florida's economy.
Now, onto the Senate for the
completion of a good bill."
Unlike the 2002 Farm Bill, this
bill for the first time provides sub-
stantial funding for the fruit and
vegetable industry. These spe-
cialty crops make up a significant
portion of Florida's agriculture
industry. The bill provides $1.6
billion for specialty crops com-
pared with $200 million dollars
allocated in the 2002 Farm bill,
not in the form of subsidies but
for research, marketing and pest
management. This includes fund-
ing for research to develop more
resilient crops and combat pests
and diseases which constantly
threaten Florida farmers. The bill
also helps U.S. farmers compete
more effectively in the global
marketplace.
"Florida knows all too well the


costs associated with a devastat-
ing agricultural pest or disease,"
Mr. Bronson said, "From MedFly
to Citrus Canker, our experience
showed us that there were statu-
tory roadblocks that prevented
federal and state agencies from
effectively reducing pest and dis-
ease threats. That includes sur-
veying for pests and diseases to
catch outbreaks early and quickly
accessing federal funds to deal
with outbreaks when they do
occur. This bill removes those
roadblocks and creates a system
to more efficiently protect agri-
culture."
The Farm Bill also expands the
Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Snack
Program which provides a variety
of fresh produce for schools and
increases purchasing of fruits and
vegetables for all federal nutrition
programs. It expands popular
conservation and environmental
protection programs including
the nation's forest resources. The
bill also makes new investments
in renewable energy research,
development and production in
rural America.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
THE LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM HAS A
LEVEL OF TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES WHICH EXCEEDS STANDARDS

heDparent of Environmental Protection requires disinfecton f .o ..n i,, i
,,r ... r, ,i. ,, ..... .. ,, ,,, ii i ..,I nt of drinking water, some
,,,,, ,,,i .,,,, ,,,,,,,, ,, ,,,,,, ,,,,,,,,, ,ter present in Ie water to
,,, r, ,,,n. pI 1,., ,1,.,,,,.. ,,, I,,i,,,.,,,, |I i. A num ber of DBP's such
i,, i, i ir,.,., i,,,, i arl .I 1 Hi.. .,i Acids (HAA5's) may be a
health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected in January 2007,
April 2007, July 2007, and November 2006, now indicate a running annual aver-
age TTHM concentration of 89.3 micrograms per liter (ugL). Therefore, The De-
partment has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550,
Forida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), identifies the MCL for TTHM's as 80 (ug/L).
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased chance
of getting cancer,
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem is corrected, any custom-
ers who are conceded about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to us alternative
sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treat-
ed by an appropriate home water treatment device. Appropriate home water treat-
ment devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for
reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treat-
ment plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be completed
in late 2007.
For more information, please contact Jeff Ussery at (863) 946-1300, or write to:
Lakeport Water Association, Inc., 10055 Red Barn Road, Moore Haven, FL
33471. You may also contact the Dept. of Environmental Protection Potable Water
Compliance/Enforcement Section at (239) 332-6975. Please share this informa-
tion with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (for example those in apartments, nursing home,
school and businesses.

Some may know of Thomas
Will, father of Lawrence Will.
Lawrence Will wrote such
books as "A Cracker History of
Okeechobee," "Okeechobee
Boats and Skippers" and others
on the history of the lake area.
Today the Lawrence Will
Museum is housed in the Belle
Glade Public Library..
Thomas Will was one of the
first settlers in the Everglades:
quite involved with seeing civi-
lization grow and prosper for
residents of the Glades. The
Belle Glade county branch li-
brary bears his name.
Here are sooome exerpts
from Mr. Will's pamphlet, "Ev-
erglades Settlement and Devel-
opment, Its Present Status and
Why":
"Over 20 years ago, a vast
Everglades selling campaign
was launched over much of
the United States. It sprang
from the effort of Governor
Broward to reclaim that region,
as agreed by Florida in accept-
ing the land from the U.S.
Government. To relaim, funds
were essential. These were
sought by Glades land sales.
Buyers were assured the land
was rich and would be speed-
ily reclaimed by the State and
that they might soon occupy
and use their lands.
"In the Nation's capital, the
interest ran high. In this, the
writer led. He was especially
active in organizing the buyers
and decisions plans to make
speedy, successful settlement

Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history







and development possible.
"In this effort, he came to
Florida in 1910, to inspect; and,
in 1914, to stay and work. He
has lived here continuously
since. "He helped start the first
settlement, namely at Davie,
in the Lower Glades in 1911;
and at Okeelanta, in the Upper
Glades, in 1913. But Everglades
settlement and development
do not go forward. Barring re-
sults from a few millionaires,
they go backward. The ques-


tion is WHY?
"I have said that, 'Everglades
settlements were compelled to
fail.' Why say this? Because I
can prove it and court opportu-
nity to do so.
"The first Everglades settle-
ment was at Zona (Davie). In
1911, I organized the first Ev-
erglades Farming, Association
and sent its representatives
from Washington, D.C. and
New Jersey there. I know the
tragic history of early Davie.
"On October 24, 1913, I
founded the first planned set-
tlement in the Upper Glades at
Okeelanta. Its history I certain-
ly know. The other sawgrass
settlements suggesting the
wrecked French villages in No
Man's Land -1 have watched
with eagle eye and I challenge
the enemies of Everglades set-
tlement and development to
permit me to get before a court


or a competent Investigating
committee with my facts and
show how these settlement
were killed.
"In 1913, for use in connec-
tion with Okeelenta, I devised
the first planned, organized,
supervised settlement in the
U.S. of which I ever heard.
However, it did not include
Government aid.
"In 1917, California adopted
the Mead plan, which included
State aid. I championed it for
use in the Everglades. In 1918,
when the soldiers were about
to return (from World War I),
Secretary Franklin K. Land,
of the U.S. Department of the
Interior, sought to induce Con-
gress to provide such a plan for
their use. But the bill was killed
and soldiers given, instead the
wretched 'bonus'."

Where did the arsenic in the lake come from?


Reports of high concen-
trations of arsenic in the
muck removed from Lake
Okeechobee's shores have
some area residents con-
cerned. Arsenic consumption
or exposure can be dangerous
- even fatal.
Where did the arsenic in
Lake Okeechobee come from?
There were probably a lot of
sources. Arsenic is occurs nat-
urally in the soil and in some
kinds of rock. When rock ores
are put in a smelter, the arsenic
can be released and go up the
smokestack and is spread by
the wind. Arsenic has been
used in fertilizers and' pesti-
cides. It is pumped into the
air by volcanoes and by coal-
burning power plants. Arsenic
is also released if you sand or
burn wood that was treated
with arsenic as a preservative.
According to a University of
Florida study, arsenic-treated
lumber debris in landfills could
also leach arsenic into the
groundwater.
Arsenic has been used in rat
poisons and in some kinds of
medicines.
In the early 1900s, Florida
ranchers used dipping vats to
control cattle disease spread
by ticks. The pesticide in those
dipping vats was arsenic. When
they were no longer needed,
the vats were buried along with
their toxic residue. Rain fall in
the areas of these vats the lo-
cations of most are unknown
-- can spread the arsenic into
the soil.
Until just a few years ago, a
popular brand of lawn fertilizer
sold in Florida contained high
levels of arsenic. Well-mean-
ing gardeners had no idea their
lush, green lawns were sources
of arsenic, which washed into
sales and drainage ditches
with each rain.
Should Floridians be con-
cerned that the soil and water
near their homes might also be


with Katrina Elsken

contaminated?
I found the following Fre-
quently Asked Questions (FAQ)
about arsenic on the Center for
Disease Control's Web site.
What is arsenic?
Arsenic is a naturally occur-
ring element widely distributed
in the earth's crust. In the envi-
ronment, arsenic is combined
with oxygen, chlorine, and
sulfur to form inorganic arse-
nic compounds. Arsenic in ani-
mals and plants combines with
carbon and hydrogen to form
organic arsenic compounds.
Inorganic arsenic com-
pounds are mainly used to
preserve wood. Copper chro-
mated arsenic (CCA) is used to
make "pressure-treated" lum-
ber. CCA is no longer used in
the U.S. for residential uses; it
is still used in industrial appli-
cations. Organic arsenic com-
pounds are used as pesticides,
primarily on cotton plants.
What happens to arsenic
when it enters the environ-
ment?
Arsenic occurs naturally in
soil and minerals and it there-
fore may enter the air, water,
and land from wind-blown
dust and may get into water
from runoff and leaching.
Arsenic cannot be destroyed
in the environment. It can only
change its form.
Rain and snow remove arse-
nic dust particles from the air.
Many common arsenic
compounds can dissolve in
water. Most of the arsenic in
water will ultimately end up in


soil or sediment.
Fish and shellfish can ac-
cumulate arsenic; most of this
arsenic is in an organic form
called arsenobetaine that is
much less harmful.
How might I be exposed
to arsenic?
Ingesting small amounts
present in your food and wa-
ter or breathing air containing
arsenic.
Breathing sawdust or
burning smoke from wood
treated with arsenic.
Living in areas with un-
usually high natural levels of
arsenic in rock.
Working in a job that in-
volves arsenic production or
use, such as copper or lead
smelting, wood treating, or
pesticide application.
How can arsenic affect
my health?
Breathing high levels of in-
organic arsenic can give you a
sore throat or irritated lungs.
Ingesting very high levels
of arsenic can result in death.
Exposure to lower levels can
cause nausea and vomiting,
decreased production of red
and white blood cells, abnor-
mal heart rhythm, damage to
blood vessels, and a sensation
of "pins and needles" in hands
and feet.
Ingesting or breathing low
levels of inorganic arsenic for
a long time can cause a dark-
ening of the skin and the ap-
pearance of small "corns" or
"warts" on the palms, soles,
and torso.
Skin contact with inorganic
arsenic may cause redness and
swelling.
Organic arsenic compounds
are less toxic than inorganic ar-
senic compounds. Exposure
to high levels of some organic
arsenic compounds may cause
similar effects as inorganic ar-
senic.
How likely is arsenic to
cause cancer?


Several studies have shown
that ingestion of inorganic arse-
nic can increase the risk of skin
cancer and cancer in the lungs,
bladder, liver, kidney and pros-
tate. Inhalation of inorganic ar-
senic can cause increase risk of
lung cancer. The Department
of Health and Human Services
(DHHS) has determined that
inorganic arsenic is a known
carcinogen. The International
Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC), and the EPA have de-
termined that inorganic arsenic
is carcinogenic to humans.
How does arsenic affect
children?
There is also some evidence
that suggests that long-term
exposure to arsenic in children
may result in lower IQ scores.
There is some information
suggesting that children may
be less efficient at converting
inorganic arsenic to the less
harmful organic forms. For this
reason, children may be more
susceptible to health effects
from inorganic arsenic than
adults.
There is some evidence that
inhaled or ingested arsenic can
injure pregnant women or their
unborn babies, although the
studies are not definitive. Stud-
ies in animals show that large
doses of arsenic that cause ill-
ness, pregnant females can
also cause low birth weight, fe-
tal malformations, and even fe-
tal death. Arsenic can cross the
placenta and has been found in '
fetal tissues. Arsenic is found at
low levels in breast milk.
How can families reduce
their risk for exposure to
arsenic?
If you use arsenic-treat-
ed wood in home projects,
you should wear dust masks,
gloves, and protective clothing
to decrease exposure to saw-
dust.
If you live in an area with
high levels of arsenic in water
or soil, you should use cleaner


Paper clutter continues to be a major


If we didn't have paper clut-
ter our homes would be clean!
Oh yes I know you will all agree
with me on this one! Paper has
multiplied like rabbits and is
hopping from one.flat surface
to the next. How can we stop
this invasion from taking over
our homes?
Have you ever gotten the
call that your mother was com-
ing to visit and you catch your-
self raking all the piles of paper
into bags and stuffing them
into the bottom of your clos-
ets? Out of sight out of mind;
we don't remember they are
hiding in the closet till we have
searched all over the house for
the phone bill to pay because
you just picked up your phone
to make a call and your phone
has been disconnected. We all
hate that feeling.
I have known people who
have moved across country
and put those garbage bags of
paper in the moving van be-
cause they didn't have time to
sort through four huge bags of
paper clutter. Those bags alone

are enough to overwhelm us at
the thought of opening up the
guilt and fear that is associated
with that paper clutter!
Let's look at what happens
when we get that call from
our mother. Our brains shut
down and we can't think! All
we know is that we have to
stash and dash! We don't think
about what is going to happen
when we hide things from our-
selves. We just know that it has
to be done and we will deal
with the consequences later.
What problems could stuffing
all those piles into a bag cause
us anyway? We know that
answer too; lost utility bills,
checks and other important
things we might need.


Many years ago I listened
to a story by Rita Davenport.
She had been on vacation for
a couple of weeks. While she
was gone all the mail was just
piled on her desk. When she
got back to work; could not
function for the piles on her
desk. She took a garbage bag
and raked all the mail into it
and place it on the credenza
across the room. All day she
was busy returning phone
calls and forgot about the bag
of mail. That night the cleaning
service came in and disposed
of the bag. The next morning
she went into a panic. What
was she going to do! What
had she missed? Over the next
few weeks and months she
realized that there were only
three items of importance in
that bag of mail: One check
that needed to be replaced, an
invitation that needed an RSVP
and they called her to ask why
she had not responded and a
letter that needed a reply.
So I dare you to throw those
bags away or just happily shred


them! I also know that you will
not take my dare! The fear still
has you held hostage! I am go-
ing to set you free once and for
all time!
I want you to think about
how long those bags have
been hiding while you gather
up what you need to only han-
dle these bags one last time!
Do you want to know how to
keep this from ever happen-
ing again? Develop the simple
habit of dealing with the mail
when it comes in the door.
Open up your bills and throw
away the advertising; only
keep the bill and the envelope.
Put the magazines where you
will read them; by your chair
or in the bathroom. If you put
one in a magazine rack; get
rid of one that is there. Put it
in your recycle bin. This paper
clutter has to earn the right to
come into your home. DON'T
PILE IT ON A TABLE TO DEAL
WITH LATER! That is why you
have that big bag now! This
will save you a lot of heartache
later.


sources of water and limit con-
tact with soil.
Is there a medical test to
show whether I've been ex-
posed to arsenic?
There are tests available to
measure arsenic in your blood,
urine, hair, and fingernails. The
urine test is the most reliable
test for arsenic exposure within
the last few days. Tests on hair
and fingernails can measure
exposure to high levels of arse-
nic over the past 6-12 months.
These tests can determine if
you have been exposed to
above-average levels of arse-
nic. They cannot predict how
the arsenic levels in your body
will affect your health.
Has.the federal govern-
ment made recommenda-
tions to protect human
health?
The EPA has set limits on the
amount of arsenic that indus-
trial sources can release to the
environment and has restricted
or cancelled many of the uses
of arsenic in pesticides. EPA
has set a limit of 0.01 parts per
million (ppm) for arsenic in
drinking water.
The OccupationafSafety and
Health Administration (OSHA)
has set a permissible exposure
limit (PEL) of 10 micrograms
of arsenic per cubic meter of
workplace air (10 g/mS) for
8 hour shifts and 40 hour work
weeks.
For more information, call
the ATSDR Information Center
at 1-888-422-8737.

Before making any
change in your diet or exer-
cise program, consult your
doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any
prescription medications.
Some drugs interact bad-
ly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."

Action figure Jesus now available


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I was in the office of my as-
sistant, when all of the sudden
my eyes focused on something
that caused me
to do a double-
take. There on
the shelf was
a Jesus action
figure. It was a
freebie that she
received from
some promo-
tion. I found out John
that there are a Hicks
series of Bible action figures that
are now available in stores.
Just think, we can hold our
Noah action figure and ride the
waves in an ark. We can lift the
hands of our Moses action figure
and divide the waters. But the.
cr~me de la crime is the Jesus
action figure.
With the Jesus action figure,


we can act as if the Spirit of the
Lord is upon us, and pretend to
be anointed and sent to proclaim
freedom for the prisoners and
release for the oppressed and to
proclaim the year of the Lord's
favor.
With the Jesus action fig-
ure, we can work to set things
straight. Imagine the joy of turn-
ing over the tables of the money
changers who were more con-
cerned with making a buck than
sharing a blessing. Imagine the
gratification that comes when we
can help the blind receive sight,
the lame walk, cure those who
have leprosy, enable the deaf to
hear, raise the dead, and preach
the good news to the poor even
if we do it through the imaginary
action of our Jesus action figure.
Who would you have Jesus heal
or help?
Whether we actually have a
Jesus action figure in hand or not,
there is a tendency for many of us


to live our spiritual lives as if we
are directing a Jesus action fig-
ure. We know that Jesus healed
the sick and helped the blind to
see, and we can imagine and di-
rect our action figure Jesus to do
these things, but we sometimes
miss the realization that we can
do these things ourselves. In John
14:12, Jesus states, "I tell you the
truth, anyone who has faith in me
will do what I have been doing.
He will do even greater things
than these, because I am going to
the Father."
Do you realize what this
means for us? Jesus' promise and
challenge for us is not only to do
the things He did, but to do even
greater things. Does this mean
I will be able to walk on water
or raise the dead? I don't know
about you, but the last time this
big boy tried to walk on water, he
sank. I can, however, walk across
seemingly impossible places to
minister to those in need because


my God is with me. And I know
that there are many spiritually
dead around me that I can help
raise up with God's help.
If we think about it, we realize
that the heart of Christ was and
is to bring people into a deeper
relationship with God. Today
more than ever, there are people
that need to have this relationship
- even more than there was at the
time of Jesus. The field is ripe for
harvest, but the harvesters are
few.
We don't need an action figure.
We need to be the action figure.
We can't be His salt in the world
if we don't get out of the shaker.
We can't be His light in the dark-
ness if we don't shine for people
who are walking or struggling in
the darkness. Our call is to action,
remembering that it's not about
us and just what we can do, but
about God and all that God in us
can do for we are the temple of
the living God!

Finding happiness is around the corner


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Following a hurricane, some-
one told me about a woman in
the street holding her family al-
bum and a Bible. She was smiling
and saying "I have all that I need!"
After all of the loss, that's quite an
outlook. Others who have lost
homes or properties didn't look
at it in quite the same way.
I remember a woman who
was robbed and who told me
that was the worst thing that
could happen to someone. I
didn't agree with her; she had
her health, friends; her home
was relatively intact and she had
enough insurance to cover her
losses. When we talked further
about her "tragedy" it seems she
was upset because someone had
invaded her private world. No,
nobody likes losing a home' or
being robbed, but sometimes we
need to see what happens from
another view.
I have had occasions to meet
those who have lost worldly pos-
sessions or had them taken away
from them and they were any-
thing but unhappy. People have


had to restart their lives after fi-
nancial disasters or fires; people
have had their freedom taken
away from them, others have
devoted their entire life to a reli-
gious cause; all finding happiness
without tangible
things or mate-
rial goods. I cam
remember times
when I look
back and say,.
"Those were
happy times."
These were dif-
ferent than the Samuel S.
moments of ela- Thomas
.tion like getting a driver's license,
getting out of school, or finding
someone special. The elation of
the moment fades and a more
mature, deeper, longer-lasting
happiness is different from the
emotional "high" of the mo-
ment.
Likewise, some of the disap-
pointments or "downers" were
short-lived and the sadness of
the moment was overcome by
what was gained in the long run.
I remember losing a scholarship
as a real "downer" and wonder-
ing what would happen in my
life afterward. I went to work for


13 months, went to night school
while working, saved some mon-
ey and went back to resume my
studies. Things improved when I
returned to school.
I now knew that: (1) Losing a
scholarship wasn't the end of the
world; (2) dropping out didn't
have to be forever; (3) 1 had to
really work at school if I wanted
to stay there; (4) I was the one
who had some say in whether
or not I would finish. Looking
back, these were times that were
happy times. They were times of
accomplishment, learning about
myself, having a goal and work-
ing toward it.
Some of those around us who
are regarded as "successes" are
also happy; they have goals and
work towards them. They are in-
wardly fulfilled and have values
other than gathering up or wor-
rying about material things, they
devote themselves to something
beyond themselves. Their lives
are filled with an all-consuming
direction that gets them up each
morning ready to go. They do
not worry about whether or not
they are "happy" and usually are
involved in some way to make
life better for others. I see these


people as happy and doing some-
thing with a religious dimension
at the same time. They share
the learning of the Psalmist who
wrote, "1I will thank you because
I am marvelously made, your
works are wonderful and I know
it well (Psalm 139, v13)."
The purposes, the reasons for
our existence and our happiness
come ultimately from the Lord.
They have to do with our being
fulfilled and our instinctive know-
ing we are fulfilled when we find
them. They have to do with real-
izing the powers within us that
are put there by God and they
are formidable when we tap into
them. They have to do with tak-
ing what is set before us as seri-
ous, but never letting them over-
come us. The woman who lost
her house did not lose her home.
Those who love worldly posses-
sions and who are lost when
something happens to them are
missing something in life more
than the things that surround
them. The Lord who told us that,
"the Kingdom of God is within us
(Luke 17:21)," also placed our
happiness there, too. Seeking
happiness within is the route to
finding the Kingdom of God.

Are you one among the wise?


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
This study of wisdom is re-
vealed in the book of Proverbs.
However, Scriptures found else-
where in the Bible are used also.
As, an introduction to the subject
of wisdom; please read Proverbs
3:13, 26, 35; 4:5-13, 1 Corinthians
3:19-20; James 3:15; II Corinthi-
ans 1:12.
Marks of wisdom will be point-
ed out in this study. The questions
of who is wise, according to Solo-
mon are:
1. The lowly are wise. "When
pride cometh, then cometh
shame, but with the lowly is wis-
dom." Prov. 11:2
2. He that winneth souls is
wise. "The fruit of the righteous
is a tree of life; and he that win-
neth souls is wise." Prov. 11:30
3. A son who hears his father's
instruction is wise. "A wise son
heareth his father's instruciton.
Prov. 13:1
4. He at that hearkeneth unto
counsel is wise." The way of a
fool is right in his own eyes: but
he that hearkeneth.unto a coun-


sel is wise" Prov. 12:15. "...with
the well advised is wisdom."
Prov. 13:10
5. "He that walketh with wise
men shall be wise: but a compan-
ion of fools shall be destroyed."
Prov. 13:20. "Be not deceived: evil
companionships corrupt good
morals." I Cor. 15:33
6. "He that feareth and depar-
teth from evil is wise: but the fool
rageth and is confident." Prov.
14:16
7. "He that is slow to wrath is
wise: but he that is hasty of spirit
exalteth folly." Prov. 14:29; James
1:10
8. He that speaks knowledge
is wise: but the mouth of fools
poureth our foolishness;" Prov.
15:2 "The lips of the wise disperse
knowledge, but the heart of the
foolish doeth not so." Prov. 15;7
9. "He that fears the lord is
wise..." Prov. 15:33 "The fear of
the Lord is the beginning of wis-
dom: and the knowledge of the
