In Pahokee’s 27-0 blowout loss to the Jupiter Christian, the Blue Devils youth and inexperience cost them in a big way throughout the course of their Aug. 26 contest at Anquan Boldin Stadium. The rst half was dominated by the Eagles, whose senior quarterback, UCF-bound Keddy Bostic (11-for-15 passing, 164 yards, 2 pass TD) connected on a touchdown pass to receiver Isaiah Nelson and ran for a score of his own. In addition, Jupiter Christian running back Jesse Stephanos, who nished the game with 16 carries for 51 yards, scored a touchdown. Pahokee went into halftime with a 20-0 de cit. The Blue Devils defense, which would wind Blue Devils Suffer Second Loss to Eagles Police believe shooter missed target, injuring a woman nearbyA woman police believe had nothing to do with an altercation received a bullet to the back. The incident happened just after midnight on Saturday, reported Eric Davis, Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Of ce Media Relations. According to the sheriff’s of ce, witnesses reported seeing two men arguing on the 600 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard in Belle Glade. The verbal argument escalated quickly, and one of the men pulled out a gun and red at the other. Investigators say the shooter missed his target when he red his gun, hitting 39year-old Afra Williams instead. Willams was transported to Delray Medical Center in stable condition, the sheriff’s of ce reported. Investigators have not said whether the shooting was gang related.

Alston was presented with a three-year contract with the city in August, and received accolades from commissioners regarding his performance so far. The contract and evaluation was approved at the August 16 regular city meeting. As part of the new agreement, the city maintains the right to terminate the contract at any time. If the city chooses at any point to terminate without cause, Mr. Alston will receive six months severance pay. During the meeting, the commissioners agreed to pay Mr. Alston a salary of $105,000 annually. The raise represents a $15,000 increase, but is still lower than managers in the neighboring cities of Belle Glade and Pahokee.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 1, 2011 Labor Day MathematicsBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchSome mathematician with too much time on his hands came up with the following interesting analogy: There are 365 days in the year, but y ou take weekends off, so you have to subtract 104 days. That leaves you with 261 working days, but you only work 8 hours a day; the other 16 y ou are either sleeping or tending to your own business, so you have to subtract 174 days. That leaves 87, but wait, we are not through subtracting yet. You eat lunch every day and although lunch hours vary, it is estimated that the average w orker consumes 45 days per year at lunch. Coffee breaks? Figure 21 days over the course of the y ear. Take those 21 days from the 42 left from the last calculation and that leaves you 21 days to get y our work done. From those 21 days you have to subtract your two weeks vacation 10 work days. Continuing the subtraction, 10 from 21 leaves only 11 actual full work days in the entire year, but of course, you do not work on Christmas, New Year’s, Independence Day or Thanksgiving. Most rms now allow 10 paid holidays per year. A fter subtracting the 10 paid holidays from the 11 days remaining you’ve got one full work day to y our credit and you want to take that day off for Labor Day? The reality is that work is a God-given gift, and most of us hard-driving Christians do our share. But God also gave us gifts like family and friends, picnics and other things that are called fun. Let us enjoy them and glorify God in the process, especially on this Labor Day Weekend, our unique A merican end-of-summer holiday that celebrates work by not working!Knowing Our CallingBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI was at an accident scene where a young boy stood and watched mother being rescued. He looked up at me and asked “Will she be all right?” My answer was that “They have brought all of the equipment available to make sure she gets all of the treatment possible.” It would have been tempting to reassure the boy that, yes, she will be all right. It would have also been possible to tell him that we just don’t know. I chose a third course; give hope but don’t deny reality. God works. Rain falls on the just and the unjust (Matthew 5:45). Bad things happen to good people. We sometimes get better than we deserve. Those who follow one series of weekly Bible readings may recall the lessons about Peter. Earlier, Peter acknowledged that Jesus was the Christ, the son of the living God (Matthew 16:16). In return, the Lord tells Peter he is blessed, his revelation comes from God, he will be instrumental in building God’s Church and he will have the power to bind and loosen (Matthew 16:17-19).” Jesus then tells his followers that He will have to suffer many things at the hands of the religious leaders of the day, and will be killed (v.21). Peter then says “This shall never happen to you!(v.22)” Jesus turns and says to Peter, “Get behind me Satan!” That’s quite a turn-around; from the foundation of the Church, being blessed, being able to bind things with eternal implications to…Satan! When you think about it; going from blessing Peter, to calling him “Satan”; something drastic must have happened. The intervening verses tell us that Peter said nothing bad was going to happen to Jesus. Whether out of good intentions, being well-meaning, being sentimental or for whatever reason, the Lord had other insights and another destiny than what Peter would have liked. He overstepped his role in God’s scheme of things that day, promising more than he could, or should deliver. That’s something that is always tempting; to say things are going to be all right when we really don’t know, giving assurances when we may only give hope, speaking in God’s name without knowing the mind of God, ignoring that God may be at work in other ways than we know. I remember reports about a minister who felt he could heal. A young boy was on crutches. He invited the boy on the stage and then told him “throw away them crutches, boy” and the boy did. He took a few steps, fell, and had to be helped off of the stage. His doctor told him that many months of work had been undone and they would have to start over. The work of the faithful is not to give false hope, not to be offering a selfish assurance that nothing “bad” will happen, not to betray the work we are called to do in God’s name. Peter really had no right to do so. Neither do we.Two Pieces of WoodBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchOnly two pieces of wood, but it pulls people! There is a power force that compels men to believe the message of the Bible about the cross on which Jesus Christ was cruci ed. Jesus, Himself said long before His death in John 12:32 “I shall draw all men to myself, when I am lifted up from the earth.” You may think that Christians are those rather ignorant or dependent people who choose this “crutch” to help them get through life. But Jesus said in John 6:44 “No man can come to me except the Father which hath sent me, dra w him.” People are pulled to the cross by the Triune God -Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit daily opens the eyes of countless people to see that their only hope is in the work of Jesus on the cross. It was there that Jesus paid for the sins o f the entire world. Two pieces of wood: The absurdity of it all to think that everything is dependent on a man put to death on a cross! Everything? Yes, Everything! Two pieces of wood: The vulgarity of it has always been a source of offense to the sophisticated -only to have the Spirit show them their sin and their need for forgiveness and reconciliation. Two pieces of wood: And now millions proudly wear this despised symbol to show their joy that God did not leave them in their stubbornness, but caused them to see the glory of His Cruci ed Son. Because true Christians are those who have been pulled by the power of Almighty God, His Church will never fail. One institutionalized church after another has degenerated, and man y denominations today do not tell the message that they promised to tell, but new churches rise to tell the truth. Two pieces of wood: Everywhere men are drawn to the cross. No racial barriers can withstand the power of the cross. No national boundaries can contain it. What a glorious communit y of people! It is the only international, inter-racial group in the world! RELIGION COLUMNS

Catch-andrelease has caught on, especially among bass anglers. However, sometimes the release isn’t immediate or the angler wants to relocate it in a different lake or river. Catch-photograph-release is a great way to collect memories. The big thing to remember is this: Proper handling means keeping the sh out of the water for as short a time as possible. Consider holding your own breath while the sh is out of the water as a gauge. If the sh is going in a livewell, remember to exchange the water frequently and keep it cool. When and where should you release your catch? First, if the law requires a freshwater sh to be released in Florida, do so as quickly and effectively as possible, but taking the necessary measurements or a photo is permitted. Release it where you caught it. When a native sh is legal to take, it is your decision whether you harvest it or release it. Generally speaking, size and creel limits have been established so that harvesting these sh will still allow sustaining the sh population. In certain circumstances, such as where slot limits are speci ed, it is especially helpful to remove the smaller sh (below the slot). In theory, reducing the numbers of small sh reduces competition, which allows the protected sh in the slot (for instance 15 inches to 24 inches) to grow more quickly. Nonnative shes (other than peacock bass and triploid grass carp) should be harvested. Most make good eating, and the best way to transport them is on ice. They should not be released and de nitely should not be relocated. Rules for relocating largemouth bass went into effect in July 2010. They affect anglers relocating bass and purchasing and stocking bass in private ponds. The reason for Rule 68-5.002 (see FLrules. org) is to protect genetically pure Florida-strain largemouth bass, also called Florida largemouth bass. Under this rule, only aquaculturists, or sh farmers, whose sh have been genetically tested and authenticated as pure Florida largemouth bass by the FWC are allowed to possess or sell bass to customers for stocking south and east of the Suwannee River. Two farms (Florida Fish Farms Inc., 352-7934224; and Shongaloo Fisheries, 352-468-1251) are registered with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and authorized to sell authenticated pure Florida largemouth bass. Largemouth bass produced out of state must be tested using procedures approved by the FWC before they can be brought into peninsular Florida. Intergrade or hybrid largemouth bass may only be transported into the Florida Panhandle for stocking in private waters west and north of the Suwannee River. These rules were implemented following extensive genetic research that identi ed even more re ned differences with largemouth bass stocks in Florida, which could relate to localized adaptations that allow the sh to thrive in particular habitats and climates. State-run hatcheries now actually use four speci c genetic conservation units to ensure that our hatcheries protect these resources. But in an age of commercial hatcheries and anglers transporting sh around the state in livewells, regulations were necessary. Release of impure Florida largemouth bass (with northern largemouth bass genes) mainly occurs through stocking private ponds and lakes, but they can end up in our rivers and lakes. This was veri ed during the genetic analyses of bass populations in South Florida that should have been “pure Florida” but were not. The problem is that the two subspecies, northern largemouth bass and Florida largemouth bass, readily interbreed, and stocking northern largemouth is a real threat to pure Florida largemouth. “Florida largemouth bass are adapted to Florida’s subtropical climate and typically spawn earlier in the year than northern largemouth bass. If the northern subspecies or intergrade (i.e., hybrid) bass spawn with Florida largemouth, their offspring may inherit genes that may reduce growth or survival, and other, less obvious genetic traits,” said Brandon Barthel, Ph.D., an FWC black bass geneticist. Anglers come to the Sunshine State from all over the world to catch trophy Florida largemouth bass. The FWC is doing everything possible to protect the genetic purity of this ecologically and economically important subspecies of sh and to promote their wise use and release. Anglers and concerned citizens can help. Beware When Moving Fish Even Native Bass PHOTO / FWCRichard Moore properly releases a nice largemouth bass. Florida, Aug. 29Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have not moved in the past week, averaging $3.54/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has increased 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.61/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 96.4 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 15.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 9.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 91.6 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “Retail gasoline prices nished last week quite strong in some areas on concern surrounding Hurricane Irene,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “The concern surrounding re nery production on the East Coast helped boost gasoline prices outside that area as well. The good news for motorists is that damage to re neries was likely minimal and gasoline production will resume soon. However, with Labor Day weekend fast approaching and these re neries taking days to resume production we still may see retail prices gradually climb during this week,” DeHaan adds.

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 1, 2011 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Florida Fall North American Migration Count (NAMC) will be held September 17. Volunteers are needed for all teams in Hendry and Glades County including Lake Okeechobee, STA5, Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest and LaBelle. More than 110 bird species were reported by teams and individuals last fall. Fifty-three Chimney Swifts were observed in Clewiston during last year’s NAMC. Currently Chimney Swifts are being seen ying above the trees in Clewiston and LaBelle. They are protected by the “Migratory Bird Treaty.” Chimney Swifts look like a “ ying cigar” when soaring overhead. This small bird has a sooty gray to black elongated body with a slightly lighter or even silvery gray throat. They have large eyes. Chimney Swifts are not capable of perching on a branch or walking on the ground like other birds. They have extremely short legs, hooks on their tiny claws and stiff-spiked tail feathers that are adapted for clinging to vertical surfaces. Their high-pitched rapid chirping twitters are often heard when they are in ight. These rapidly ying birds spend most of their time in the air when they aren’t nesting or roosting at night. In ight, they catch insects, drink, bathe and collect nesting materials. They nest in chimneys, rock walls and buildings. The half-cup-shaped nest is made from small sticks which are glued together, and secured to a rock wall or chimney with their saliva. Both parents help incubate the clutch of three to seven white glossy eggs for 19-21 days. Chicks are capable of ight at 28-30 days of age, but may leave the nest after three weeks and cling to the wall. Chimney Swifts are usually found in Florida from March until mid-October. They y long distances to their wintering grounds in western Brazil, eastern Peru and other locations in South America. You are invited to join a team or volunteer to count at your home during the Sept. 17 NAMC. Send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5birding@embarqmail.com to request information.

High tech acoustic equipment usedBY MICKIE ANDERSON Univ. of FloridaUniversity of Florida researchers are nding new ways to thwart crop-devouring pests by being good listeners. High-tech acoustic equipment makes it possible for them to listen in as insects gnaw on grapevine roots, making it much easier for viney ard owners to know where to focus their efforts against the pest called the grape root borer. Will Sanders, a former UF entomology graduate student, conducted much of the research and outlines the project in the current issue of Florida Entomologist. Using sound to target the pest could one day save vineyard owners money and pay off for consumers in lower costs for grapes and wine, he said. Grapes are a $20 million annual industry for Florida. The grape root borer, a moth that looks similar to a wasp, is a major pest in grapes in the Southeast. In its caterpillar stage, it feeds inside the grape plant's roots and damages the plant. There is a pesticide called chlorpyrifos that works w ell against the insect, but it is toxic to birds, sh and bees, making many vineyard owners reluctant to use it. There is another relatively effective control that does not involve pesticide that growers can use, however, called "mounding." Before grape root borer caterpillars become moths, they must burrow up to the soil surface. They form their cocoon while still submerged. W hen grape root borers become adults, they break free from the cocoon and emerge from the soil. Placing a mound of soil around the base of the grapevine means the insects must travel farther as fragile adults before they reach the surface, and generally kills them. But piling up mounds of dirt throughout a v ineyard is time consuming, labor intensive and expensive, said Sanders, a former graduate student advised by Oscar Liburd, a professor in pest management with UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. Sanders said long before he began working on grape pests, he remembered seeing a presentation by Richard Mankin, an insect physiologist with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service, on how scientists were using a machine called an accelerometer to convert vibration to an electrical signal, then another to convert that signal into sound. Mankin had used the setup to detect underground sugarcane pests as well as pests munching away in grain silos. As he began his graduate work, Sanders said he was trying to think of ways to attack the underground borers before they emerged from the soil, when he remembered Mankin's presentation. "It seemed like a great idea if they can nd dinosaur bones with sound, and they can nd beetles with sound, maybe I'll be able to nd my caterpillars with sound," he said.Mankin, a member of UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, helped Sanders with the research project. Sanders, Mankin, Liburd and Lukasz Stelinski, an assistant professor in entomology, wrote the journal article. Sanders said it wasn't hard to tell the difference between underground insects and other noises, but it was dif cult to distinguish grape root borer sounds from other insects. After listening in on over 30 root systems in commercial vineyards in Florahome and Lithia, Fla., they only captured one live grape root borer, as well as many other insects. But the acoustic testing works, he said, because if growers were to count even ambiguous insect sounds as a positive, they could reduce the number of sites that require mounding by as much as 75 percent. Mankin said he believes the grape root borer study will eventually prove useful to the state's 22 wineries and that he hopes Sanders can secure funding to devote more time to the research. "I think it's potentially very useful," Mankin said. "This is the main pest of concern to grape growers in this part of the country." 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 NOTICE OF OFFICE MOVEThe Health Care District of Palm Beach CountysWestern County Eligibility Oce has moved to: 1201 NW Avenue L, Belle Glade FL 33430 (across the street from the Post Oce)Hours: Monday-Friday, 8:00 am-5:00 pm.

The meeting will be held in the South Florida Operations Of ce conference room, 525 Ridgelawn Rd., Clewiston, at 6 p.m. The formal portion of the meeting begins at 7 p.m. Technical experts will be available prior to, and after, the formal presentation to provide information and answer questions about the Manatee Pass Gates project. The MPS detects the West Indian Manatee and prevents the gates from closing and harming the protected animal. The system uses an acoustic array that sends signals between sensors. If the signals of the sensors are interrupted by a manatee, the lock gates automatically stop. After a program delay to allow the obstruction to clear, the gates attempt to close again. If the obstruction is clear, the gate fully closes, if not, the gate will stop again. Both the Marine Mammal Protection and the Endangered Species Acts require the Corps of Engineers to provide protection for these endangered animals. These laws make it illegal to harass, hunt, capture or kill any marine animal. The Moore Haven Lock located on the west side of Lake Okeechobee at the junction with the Caloosahatchee River, will be closed Sept. 18 through Nov. 14. The contractor, Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, will work as rapidly as possible and hopes to complete the project ahead of schedule to minimize adverse impacts to those who use the lock. Navigation interests are urged to take the closure into consideration when planning their travel and operations. Additional information regarding this issue and others may be obtained by accessing the Jacksonville District's website at www.saj.usace. army.mil and choosing Operations Division' tab and selecting Notices to Navigation' from the pull down menu.

"We made a lot of mental mistakes," said Pahokee senior wide receiver Shaquille White, who had four catches for 35 yards. "We got to work on that. Next we go out to play, we'll compete harder." The Blue Devils committed 12 penalties for 85 yards in the game, mostly on a series of false starts on offense and a few encroachment calls on the defensive side. There were a few positives that did come from this game, however. Pahokee may have just found a star running back in sophomore Jonathan Jordan, who led the Blue Devils rushing attack with nine carries for 110 yards. In addition, sophomore quarterback Rashaun Croney added six carries for 57 yards on the ground all in the rst half. Prior to being taken out of the game with what was believed to be a leg injury, Croney did make a nice 37-yard run on one play, as he juked his way past a few Jupiter Christian defenders. Eighth-grader Josh Carr, who lled in for Croney, went 10-for-21 passing with 138 yards in the second half. Pahokee's Clint Everett had eight tackles and a sack on Bostic one of the highlights on defense for the Blue Devils. Blue Devils head coach Blaze Thompson tried his best to put a positive spin on the end result. "There's not much positive you can get out of this game, other than the fact we have another week to prepare for the season," Thompson said. "We're going to improve, but there's so much improvement that needs to be done. I hope the boys are ready to spend some time out on the eld in our practices." Nelson, who also caught two interceptions in the game for Jupiter Christian, offered his take on how this preseason game turned out. "Pahokee seems like a young team and gave us a run for our money," Nelson said. "I'm proud of the fact we got to play them and get a win out of it." Jupiter Christian head coach Bill Powers expounded even further on this matchup. "I think we played pretty well against them," Powers said. "They're young and they're going to get better." This is Pahokee's second straight blowout loss at home to Jupiter Christian in the Kickoff Classic, including a 35-14 defeat at the hands of the Eagles last season. Glades Central 39, Boyd Anderson 0: Raiders junior running back Aaron Baker led the team with 151 rushing yards on 24 carries for a touchdown, while Jatavis Brown and John Brockman each caught interceptions for Glades Central during their team's preseason game in Lauderdale Lakes.

Whether it’s a laptop, tablet or smartphone you’re looking for, it’s best not to take a one-size ts all approach. What works for you may not be right for your teen or spouse. Before making a selection, there are a few factors to take into consideration, including size, operating system, design, intended use and feature set. “Mobile technology devices are pervasive in our lives. They’re our digital companions,” says Li Jun, Senior Vice President, Product Group at Lenovo. “Whether your priority is entertainment, business, security or productivity, a little research can help you nd the device that best suits your needs.” The Student Since students are very active, size matters. But with note-taking and reading a top priority, you don’t want to select a mobile device that’s too small. Since the device will need to go to class, study sessions and even parties, a tablet is an ideal compromise. New tablet devices weigh less than two pounds, in many cases, and come preloaded with student-friendly apps like Amazon’s Kindle eBook reader. The Online Socialite Are you always updating your status message? Can’t enter a restaurant without “checking in?” If your mobile device is your BFF, a device with a one-stop social connection and multi-tasking interface will save on battery life and leave more time for keeping up with friends and family. The Lenovo IdeaPad Tablet K1, for example, offers a “Social Touch” app that aggregates your favorite networking sites like Twitter and Facebook with your calendar and e-mail. It also offers a front and rear camera for face-toface networking. The Professional Do you frequently travel or meet with clients? If so, you should consider things like aesthetics, speed and functionality when choosing a device. Business-focused devices should offer features like a full-sized USB drive and SD card reader for easily transferring les between meetings, or the ability to connect presentations to an external monitor, conduct video conferences and keep your business chugging. Of course your business wouldn’t buy le cabinets with broken locks. You’ll need the same security for your digital data. Make sure your device comes with anti-theft software, which disables it if it is lost or stolen. For more on nding the right combination of function and security, and to browse different mobile devices, visit www.shop.lenovo.com. In today’s connected world, a mobile device suited to your needs is essential no matter what you do for fun or money. How to Choose Mobile Devices For Your Family The rst of a ve-part seriesBY DOTTIE COOK Empowerment Alliance of SW Florida Editor’s Note The Empowerment All iance of SW Florida is a 501(c)(3) not f or pro t corporation and primarily cove rs Eastern Collier, Hendry and Glades Counties with a main mission of building a ffordable housing for low income famil ies. The organization also is a HUD-app roved agency for counselling on credit rst time home buyers and foreclosure m atters.Do you sometimes run out of money before y our next paycheck and feel like you don’t know w here it all went? Are your credit card bills higher than you would like? A budget is a simple tool that can help. A budget helps us plan and track where we spend our money. The idea of creating a budget sounds dif cult and time-consuming, but you can complete one in about 20-30 minutes. And tracking what we spend takes just a few minutes each night. What takes a little more time is thinking about y our money goals. What are you trying to accomplish? Is it buying a house or a car, paying off your credit cards, building a savings account, or something else? Your money goals can be short-term such as buying a new dress, or long-term, like buying a house. Most have several money goals at any time, but if we don’t think about our goals and make a plan for how to accomplish them, we probably won’t be successful in achieving them. For purposes of a budget, you’ll want to think about those goals not only in terms of initial cost, but also in terms of what they will cost on a monthly basis if it’s more than a one-time expense. For example, think about buying a car. The costs involved will not only be the monthly car payment, but also the monthly costs of car insurance, gas, and regular maintenance. All of these costs must be included in our monthly budget as expenses of owning and operating a car. Many of our goals have costs we may not initially think of, but when we look at the whole picture, we have a better understanding of how much these goals cost. In the case of our car example, these other costs may determine if you buy a new or used car and how long you nance it. Better to think of these things now than purchase something and nd out later that it’s more than you can afford. Think about your goals and identify which ones are most important to you and the true costs of them. Also determine which goals can wait if you don’t have enough income for everything right now. Next week we’ll help you build your own budget so you can start tracking where you spend your money and working toward your goals. Introduction to Budgeting PHOTO / GOOGLE.COM

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 1, 2011 BY ROBERT H. WELLS UFMosquitoes aren’t just a nuisance, they’re also an economic and health concern, say University of Florida researchers. July, August, and September are peak months for mosquito activity in Florida, and the state spends about $151 million each year trying to control the biting insects. Controlling mosquitoes is important for economic development and tourism, said Jonathan Day, a University of Florida medical entomology professor at UF’s Florida Medical Entomology Lab in Vero Beach. “Looking at Florida’s history, there are large tracts of land that simply would not have been developed had it not been for mosquito control,” Day said. And if there are mosquito-borne disease outbreaks one year, there can be severe nancial impact on the state’s tourism industry the next, Day said. “We actually saw that in 1991,” he said. “The y ear following the St. Louis encephalitis epidemic in 1990, we saw a real downswing in tourism.” The medical entomology lab, part of UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, is tracking mosquito-borne diseases in the state including eastern equine encephalitis, West Nile virus, St. Louis encephalitis, and dengue virus. The spring drought reduced mosquito-borne diseases so far this year, Day said, but residents and visitors should still be cautious. He noted that mosquito numbers are high this y ear because many mosquitoes have drought-resistant eggs that stayed dormant until the summer rainy season triggered them to hatch. Mosquito landing rates, which are the number of mosquitoes that land on a person in a given time, have ranged from 10 to 50 per minute this summer at the Vero Beach lab. And although mosquito-borne diseases often cause mild symptoms such as fever and muscle pain, they can be fatal for some. Roxanne Connelly, a medical entomologist at the Vero Beach lab, said people die from mosquito-borne diseases every year. “It seems that Eastern equine encephalitis is the deadliest,” Connelly said. “That is one that kind of affects all age ranges of people. Whether y ou’re young or old, if you get it, it seems to be one that is very dif cult to recover from.” Eastern equine encephalitis has been detected in three Florida horses this year – two in Holmes County and one in Marion County, and there are currently no human cases. Mosquitoes become infected with the disease by feeding on infected birds and then transmit the disease to humans and horses. Eleven human cases of West Nile virus have been con rmed this year in Duval County, with one suspected death. One sentinel chicken in Indian River County has tested positive for St. Louis encephalitis, but there have been no human cases so far. Lab of cials are closely watching the Key West area to see if dengue virus emerges there this year as it has the past two years. Two locally acquired cases of dengue have been con rmed in the state in 2011 — one in Martin County and one in Miami-Dade County. The virus is transmitted from person to person via mosquito. To protect themselves, residents are encouraged to remove standing water from their property, avoid outside activity during early morning and late evening hours, wear protective clothing, and use insect repellent. Mosquito Threat Emerges as Season Peaks PHOTO / U F Some mosquito species play a major role in the transmission of disease-causing viruses. A new surface at the Henry Creek Boat Ramp allows for a smooth launchThe South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) opened the refurbished Henry Creek Boat Ramp today, improving access to Lake Okeechobee on public land. Once just a slope of sand and shells, the 30year-old boat ramp now has a surface of interlocking concrete blocks, 72 feet long by 10 feet wide. The new ramp is designed to allow for an easier and safer launch for the boating public. New parking spaces were also added at the ramp, located in the Lake Okeechobee Rim Canal (L-47) in Okeechobee County. The District is steadily increasing recreational access to public lands while continuing to manage them to support environmental restoration, water supply, water quality and ood control missions. At present, the District has opened 621,000 acres of land to the public. Many of these properties are in their natural state or have enhancements such as picnic tables, informational kiosks, campsites and hiking trails.
