A third horse, in less than a
month, has died after contracting
a Inosquito-borne illness, Eastern
Equine Encephalitis virus (EEE) in
Collier County.
"We are concerned about the
presence of this virus in our con-
Inunity. It has had a tragic outcome
for the owners of these horses and
we sympathize with their loss. Of
further concern is these deaths
alert us to the fact that our resi-
dents are also at risk of acquiring
EEE" informs Collier County Health
Department Director, Joan Colfer,
M.D., M.P.H.. The Centers for Dis-
ease Control & Prevention reports
all residents of and visitors to areas
where EEE activity has been identi-
fied are at ri k of nfe nion.ridb-
cause there had not been a horse
or human case of EEE in Collier


County for at least 24 years, ac-
cording to Dr. Frank Van Essen, Ex-
ecutive Director, Collier Mosquito
Control District.The disease has a
fatality rate of 75 to 95 percent in
horses.
With three horse deaths so early
in our mosquito season, it is irnper-
ative horse owners vaccine their
horses against EEE and because
there is no vaccine for humans, in-
dividuals need to be vigilant about
protecting themselves from being
bitten by a mosquito.
EEE causes severe illness in
humans and horses. Syrnptorns
in humans develop 3-10 days after
the bite of an infected mosquito
and begin with a sudden onset of
fever, general muscle pains, and
a headache of increasing severity.

INI Florida/Katrina Eleken
The Florida Department of Agriculture is encouraging all horse
owners to make sure their horses are vaccinated against EEE.

SDusk and Dawn -- Avoid being outdoors
when mosquitoes are seeking blood. For
many species, this is during the dusk and
dawn hours.
SDress -- Wear clothing that covers most
of your skin.
DEET -- When the potential exists for
exposure to mosquitoes, repellents contain-
ing DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide, or
N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide) are recom-
mended. Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus,
and IR3535 are other repellent options. Al-
ways read label directions carefully for the

SDrainage -- Check around your home
to rid the area of standing water, which is
where mosquitoes can lay their eggs.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito Breeding
Sites
Clean out eaves, troughs and gutters.
Remove old tires or drill holes in those
used in playgrounds to drain.
Turn over or remove empty plastic pots.
Pick up all beverage containers and


cups.
SCheck tarps on boats or other equip-
ment that may collect water.
Pump out bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths and pet or
Other animal feeding dishes at least once a
week.
.Change water in plant trays, including
hanging plants, at least once a week.
.Remove vegetation or obstructions in
drainage ditches that prevent the flow of wa-
ter.
'There are vaccines available for use in
horses in protecting them against EEE, WEE,
and WNV. Horse owners should contact
their veterinarian about the appropriate use
of these vaccines.

What is an arbovirus?

Arboviruses are viruses spread to people by insect or
tick bites. In Florida, we find West Nile virus (WNV),
Eastern Equine Encephalitis virus (EEEV), and St. Louis
Encephalitis virus (SLEV). These viruses are spread by
mosquitoes and can cause serious illnesses in people.



How do people become infected
with arboviruses?

An infected mosquito spreads virus through its bite. The
virus mainly passes back and forth between birds and
mosquitoes. Sometimes an infected mosquito will bite a
person or a horse instead of a bird. People cannot catch
an arbovirus from casual contact with an infected

Foundation and the last from I HOPE. All of
them are men of God whose hearts are al-
ways aimed for the welfare of the people of
Immokalee. Mr. Heers, who also needs no
introduction, fits the Catholic definition of a
"saint." Cynthia Garcia of Children's Medi-
cal Services is also saintly. Kathy Romero,
my CFC Youth leader, is an inspiration for
her peers to follow Christ. Soyla Reyna over-
came incredible odds and did not look back
but forward and serve God. The priests of
Our Lady of Guadalupe Church, who have
studied a different language in order to serve
God away from their comfort zones. My two
employees, Lisa Gomez and Christie Garcia,
who despite so many difficulties, do their
best to instill values to their families. Hats off
to Steve Price and to Manny Touron.
Parents come to my office in disbelief,
many of them shocked that I would be leav-
ing Immokalee. I have considered most of
them to be a part of my extended family;
and in doing so, they have responded the
same to me. Honestly, giving up Immokalee
was not an easy task. For years, I have told


so many people that I love this community
so much that I would love to serve them till
the day I die. But governmental regulations
and rules have put a shot to my wishes.
To me, being a physician is a privilege
that was given to me by God, So, I cannot be
haughty nor proud and say that I am better
than you for I am not. In God's eyes, we are
all His children, and I should see in each one
of you a reflection of my Savior Jesus Christ
I struggled each day to do that. Some days,
it was easy, some days it was not. I prayed
each day that my patients and their families
will feel the presence of God in my office.
Please do not consider me a saint; I am
not. I just enjoy what I do. I grew to love and
respect the people of Immokalee. You guys
are awesome! Life is short. I don't know
how much time the Lord will give me and
I want to make sure I do good as much as
I can while I am alive. I hope I brought a
piece of heaven to earth through Immokalee

this year, the State of Florida designated $130
million of state funds to be spent in Collier
County, along with a match of $130 million
in local funds if approved by the County
Commission, in the hopes of specifically ex-
panding the nonprofit research institute The
Jackson Laboratory to Collier County.
As the COO of The Jackson Laboratory,
I can tell you that we have been searching
for the right location to grow our research
efforts and Collier County is the ideal candi-
date. Founded in 1929 in Bar Harbor, Maine,
The Jackson Laboratory is a nonprofit re'
search institute that employs nearly 1400
people and is at the forefront of personalized
medicine. Simply put, we find a better, more
efficient way of treating diseases based upon
an individual's genetics. Some of the diseas-
es we are currently working on to develop
cures are cancer, Alzheimer's, diabetes, Par-
kinson's, and cystic fibrosis.
While we have been courted by other cit-


ies to grow our research in their neighbor-
hoods, we believe that eastern Collier Coun-
ty provides huge potential for biomedical
research and related businesses. The land is
plentiful and immediately ready for construc-
tion. The state has designated biomedical
research as the focus of its innovative incen-
tive program and is committed to bringing
the best and brightest to Florida. State and
local educational institutions are eager to
partner with us on a variety programs. Ad-
ditional nonprofits and businesses are look-
ing to us to for collaborative relationships, in
turn, furthering the positive outcome of our
work and theirs.
The opportunity for growth economic
development in the County is exponential.
Construction, retail, education, medical, real
estate are all industries that will benefit. We
are excited at the opportunity and encour-
age you to learn more about our organiza-
tion by visiting www.jax.org.

Dear Editor:
Thank you, Dr. Jerry Williamson, for your
warm letter. Indeed, Immokalee is blessed
with a fine medical institution, Collier Health
Services, Inc., and I know that most of my
patients will gravitate to them when I leave.
I would like to pause for a moment and
acknowledge the following people, who
Consider, as giants. Not because of their
enormous stature, which they are not, but
because they have been a great blessing to
the community of Immokalee and they are
some of the reasons why Immokalee will
continue to blossom and not falter. There
is always a danger that I would exclude so
many in my list that deserve recognition but
please forgive me if your name is not in my
list. I made a quick one and so it is not in-
clusive.
Let me start with Fred Thomas, who
definitely needs no introduction. What will
Immokalee be without him? Then there is
Reid Carpenter, John Lawson, Sinclair Wil-
liams, Dick Hailer and Rick Heers. The first
four are from the One by One Leadership

Over a three day period recently, the
South Florida Water Management District
(SFWMD) airlifted 60 tons of aquatic plants
to two constructed treatment wetlands to
help improve the quality of water flowing
into America's Everglades.
SFWMD staff harvested three native
species of submerged aquatic plants -
Southern naiad, chara and Illinois pond-
weed -already growing within sections of
the District's Stormwater Treatment Areas
(STAs). The plants were loaded into a large
cargo net and flown by helicopter to STA-1
East and Cell 2 of STA-2, where they were
released at low altitude into shallow waters.
Approximately 80 flights each carried be-
tween 1,400 and 1,500 pounds of plants.
Known as submerged aquatic vegetation
because it grows beneath the surface of the
water, the airlifted plants should quickly re-
establish themselves in their new habitats
and increase phosphorus removal from
water moving through the STAs. In STA-1
East, District scientists are trying to encour-
age growth of native Southern naiad over
exotic vegetation that has been growing in
the transplant area. Meanwhile, the District
is converting Cell 2 of STA-2 from emergent
cattails to the three submerged aquatic spe-
cies.
Stormwater Treatment Areas are the
water-cleaning workhorses of Everglades
restoration, using plants to naturally re-


move phosphorus from water flowing into
the fabled River of Grass. The District op-
erates a network of six STAs south of Lake
Okeechobee with a combined area of more
than 52,000 acres. Since 1994, the treatment
areas have retained more than 1,200 metric
tons of total phosphorus that would have
otherwise entered the Everglades.

More than 1,000 pounds of native
plant species were dropped by heli-
copter into the Everglades in hopes
of increasing the phosphorus removal
from the water moving through STAs.
