Bridge Operations for the L.S.
Coast Guard's District 7 says he
usually sees 60 reports a week of
unnecessary bridge openings in
his 6,000 bridge jurisdiction,
which includes Florida, George
and North Carolina. Usually a
photo is taken at the time of the
offense by the bridge operator
and used as evidence if needed.
Bridge operators ate also sub-

Bridge is not to be opened during
peak traffic periods of 7 to 9 a.m.
and 4 to 6 p.m. Exceptions to this
rule are tug boats, barges and
vessels in distress. These have
top priority and the bridge will be
opened at any time for them.

Influenza provided by the Hendry
and Glades County Health Depart-
ments. The series will cover basic
information and actions to be
taken if Pandemic Flu becomes a
realistic threat to the citizens of
Hendry and Glades counties.
The most current information
on Avian Flu is available at:
What is Avian Influenza?
Bird Flu is a virus that affects
birds. Avian Influenza does not
usually infect people, but infections
with these viruses have occurred in
humans. The possibility of a
human being infected is rare and
usually involves touching a sick or
dead bird that carried the virus,
handling infected birds or touching
surfaces contaminated by sick
birds or their droppings.
Avian Flu is also referred to as
H5NI. Influenza viruses are
grouped into three types: type A,
type B, and type C. The subtypes
*are further divided into different
strains. Each specific strain can be

Bonnie June Paynter, age 82, of
LaBelle, passed away March 29,
2006, in LaBelle. She was born Apr.
29, 1923, in Correctionville, Iowa,
the daughter of the late Clarence
Henry and Pearl May (Lowrey)

years ago from Homestead, where
she lived for 25 years.

Pathogenic is defined as capa-
ble of causing disease." While
some Avian Influenza viruses are
known to cause a minor effect in
the health of poultry, some can
evolve and change into highly
pathogenic strains or those capa-
ble of producing serious health
problems. Since viruses need a liv-
ing host to survive, they mutate or
change to ensure their continued
existence. This change in the virus
make-up forms new strains that
allows easier spread and can be
harder to control.
As DOH becomes more familiar
with the concept of this emerging
event we will be more aware of
potential threats and what we can
do to prepare.
What is an epidemic?
An epidemic is a widespread
outbreak of disease.
What is a pandemic?
A pandemic is an epidemic
(widespread outbreak) that affects
the world. Pandemic flu is a global
disease outbreak that occurs when
little or no immunity to rte new
virus and it can spread easily from
person to person. Currently there is
no pandemic flu.
Pandemic Flu Planning
You can prepare for an influen-
za pandemic now. You should
know what can happen during a
pandemic outbreak and what
actions you can take to help lessen
the impact of an influenza pan-
demic on you and your family. This
checklist will help you gather the
information and resources you
may need in case of a flu pandem-
ic. According to Dr. Fernandez of
the Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments "residents
should start purchasing a few
items each week" in case of an
extended stay at home.
Store a supply of water and
food. During a pandemic, if you
cannot get to a store or if stores are
out of supplies, it will be important
for you to have extra supplies on
hand. This can be useful in other
types of emergencies, such as
n; Have any inonprescripuion
drugs and other health supplies on

ready-to-eat canned meats,
fruits, vegetables and soups.

County sets water rules
By Patty Brant
Hendry County commission-
ers passed an ordinance at their
March 27 meeting establishing a
water shortage plan for the Port
LaBelle Utilities service area.
This water shortage plan is'
similar to adjacent counties and
spells out the county's powers to
curtail water usage during times
of draught or the diminished
availability of water. PLBU board
member John Capace told the
commissioners that his board rec-
ommended adoption of the ordi-
nance. He said his board did pre-
fer to exclude private wells and
add xeroscape (landscaping for
minimal water usage) recom-
mendations instead. However,
the county commissioners opted
to include private wells in the
Commissioner Kevin McCarthy
agreed, citing his concern for ade-
quate potable water and fire con-
trol in the future.
It is expected that the county
will implement water regulations
Mr. Capece said next year is
more of a concern for him. The
current PLBU waterplant is at
capacity now, with a backlog of
150 more connections still to be
made. He said the plant needs an
additional 100 percent capacity.
With a new waterplant not
expected to come on line until
March 2007, he fears that it might
not be able to provide enough
water for customers from Decem-
ber 2006 through February 2007.
He added that the county needed
to implement the new ordinance
"stringently and effectively."
The commissioners could look
at landscaping regulations later.
The next regular meeting of
the Hendry County Board of
County commissioners will be at
5 p.m. Tuesday, April II, at the
Pioneer Plantation Community
Center off Hendry Isles Blvd.

Why do you need disability insurance?
Suppose I was willing to make
a deal with you! See if you would
accept it. Here is the deal. You
give me 5 percent of your annual
salary, and make do on 95 per-
cent of your income. You can
probably do that. Here is my part
of the deal. In the event you ever
have an accident or sickness that
keeps you out of work for three
months (you should have at least
three months savings in the bank
for emergencies), I will then start
paying you 60 percent of your
income, tax-free, until you are 65
years of age or older, maybe even
the rest of your life, or until you
get well enough to go back to
work. Assuming you are disabled
and eliminate all unnecessary
expenses, you can probably
maintain your current standard of
living on that 60 percent tax-free
income. That will give you a lot of
financial security! Do you want
the deal? If you are in reasonably
good health, that is what you get
when you buy Disability Income
Insurance from an insurance
by Wayne C. Switzer
How important is Disability
Insurance? Here are some perti-
nent facts. Home foreclosures
due to death of the owner are 3
percent, but due to disability are
48 percent. One out of every four
bankruptcies is due to disability.
At age 30, there is over a 50 per-
cent chance of having at least one
long-term disability before age 65.
At age 40, odds are about 45 per-
cent. At age 50, odds are about 33
percent, and at age 60, odds are
about 15 percent.
Here is what you should know.
The more income you make, the
more important it is that you buy
that type of insurance. If you have
a highly professional education, it
becomes even more important,
because you are insuring the
financial reward gained by all
your education. Additionally,
certain occupations receive an
extra discount because they typi-
cally have a low frequency of
claims, combined with a natural
incentive to return to work.
Those occupations include
Physicians, Attorneys, Pharma-
cists, Architects, Engineers,
Accountants, and Psychologists.
Business owners, including con-
tractors who make a good living,
can also obtain a very good con-
Something I have mentioned
before in this weekly column,
when looking at insurance poli-
cies, always check on the Exclu-
sions and Limitations in the poli-

is just as important as knowing

Hope Hospice will host the
Fifth Annual Southwest Florida
Conference on Aging, to be held
1 in Fort Myers on Friday, April 21.
The Conference is sponsored by
Osterhout & McKinney, PA.,
Elder Law Attorneys.
The conference will provide

wide range of issues related to
aging. Sessions will offer: educa-

Hope, Hospice President and

"As we continue to determine
what more can be done in sup-
port of our aging population, this
event will help to stimulate the
necessary thought and discus-
sion. We're proud to host the
conference as another way of
serving our community."
Lance McKinney of Osterhout
& McKinney added, "There is no
group more deserving or in need
than the elders of our communi-
ty. Those who serve this popula-
tion are among the most dedi-
cated and caring in our
community. It is with pride and
pleasure that we participate in

the elderly's issues
premiums vary from one com-

With Disability Income Insur-
ance there are some provision's
that are very important. Those
include: What is the definition of
total disability? Residual disabili-
ty? How long is the waiting peri-
od? How long is the benefit peri-
od? Is it Guaranteed Renewable?
Is it Non-Cancelable? Does it
have a cost-of-living increase
rider to keep up with inflation, if
you become disabled?
If all of this has peaked your
interest and you like the idea of
having this protection, but not
the 50o premium factor, here is a
little more good news. By accept-
ing less than lifetime or age 65
coverage, you can still get a lot oi
coverage for 1 percent to 3 per-
cent of your salary. Don't put it off
until you have bad' health and
insurability problems. Your local
insurance agent can give you
more information. Wayne C.

Caloosa Belle, Thursday, April 6, 2006
By MaryAnn Morris
South Florida's watershed is in
crisis. While some communities
are struggling with drought, other
:areas face flooding. Environmen-
tal concerns are raised through-
out the area, with lakes, rivers and
coastal estuaries all suffering.
State officials say solving South
Florida's water woes requires
understanding how the system
works, and why it is in its current
Florida became a state in 1845.
To develop a tax base and bring
People to the state, the legislature
passed the Internal Improvement
'Act in 1855. This piece of legisla-
..tion gave or sold land at low
'prices to those who would drain it
or build roads and railroads to
:bring in goods, tourists and set-
As white settlers migrated into
* Florida after the Civil War in the
:late 1800's, timber was cut to
build homes and towns. Lumber
-became big business. Wes
-Raulerson and the Sherman fami-
ly had saw mills in Okeechobee.
:Throughout Florida, saw mills
:sprang up, feeding the building of
towns, homes and farms through-
out the state and the nation.
According to Lynda Rider of
LaBelle, Sears Roebuck had a mill
-located. south of present-day
LaBelle. Sears shipped lumber
north to provide lumber for their
precut homes, sold through their
catalogue and shipped, down to
the last nail, by railroad to buyers
around the country.
Newspapers across the coun-
try carried reports of the lush veg-
etation, rich soil and year-around
warm climate of Florida.
These reports caught the eyes
:of northern and Midwestern
industrialists like Henry Flagler,
Barron Collier and Richard Bolles,
who bought huge tracts of land
.from the state to drain and sell.
Railroads, built by Henry Fla.
gler and HenryB. Plant connected
new towns and brought tourists
and settlers alike. They built huge
luxury hotels for tourists near
their railroads. The rush for land
'began. Tampa was the site of a
growing cigar industry, citrus
:groves sprang up and sugar cane
and rice were grown experimen-
The prairie land north of
Basinger (in Okeechobee Coun-
ty) attracted land developers dur-
ing the lirst two decades of the
20th century even as other specu-
lators followed the railroads to the
east and west. Prior to 1910, the
Southern Colonization Company,
organized by mid-western busi-
nessmen, purchased large tract of
land, 36 square miles, in the belief
that the prairie lands would be
perfect for farming.
A hotel and demonstration
farm was built at Hunter's Camp,
about seven miles north of
.Basinger. Prospective buyers
came down the Kissimmee River
on Captain Johnson's steamer,
were picked up in wagons to go
look over the land. The standard
tract sold was ten acres as the
project was planned for small
farmers. The buyers were prom-
ised that a railroad would soon be
built into the area.
In 1916 the South Florida and
'Gulf Railroad reached Prairie
Ridge, a point about 12 miles
north of Basinger, according to
Kyle Van Landingham's "History
of Okeechobee," just above the
area now known as the Viking, a
further subdivision of The South-
ern Colonization Company's orig-
inal 1912 plat. Of course, the land
wasn't really good for farming.
Nathan Hazeleiff of Okeechobee
remembers his grandfather's sell-
ing orange trees to those develop-
ers. They would plant them, then
drive the city folk around and
around, passing the same group
of trees from different angles.
Following World War I, large
* numbers of Americans finally had
the time and money to travel to
Florida to vacation and to invest in
real estate. Educated and skilled
workers were receiving paid vaca-
tions, pensions, and fringe bene-
fits, which made it easier for them
to travel and to purchase real

Land sales brought buyers by train to Florida. Land salesmen in Winter Haven in 1924 wait-
ed for their buyers, spread along the tracks. Each had been assigned to several buyers. They
were told which buyer was riding in which car, so they knew where to stand along the tracks.
estate. ne automooDle was also
becoming, an indispensable way
for families to travel, and Florida
was the perfect destination. Many
of the people who migrated: into
Florida were middle class Ameri-
cans with families.
By 1920, Florida had a popula-.
tion of 968,470 people. Just five
years later, the population had
grown to 1,263,540. The State
was so eager to drain the land that,
they awarded thousands of acres.
per mile of channel dug. As the
land dried, crops were planted,
livestock grazed and people
mo\ed in. Florida was billed as a
land of plenty, where crops
sprung out of the ground almost
as soon as they were planted.
Towns were built in just a few
\ears: Moore Haten, Clewiston,
tkeechobee. -akeport -Pat(oee,
Belle Glade and LaBelle were all
founded between 1915 and 1925.
Barton Collier was building to the
west and Okeechobee was adver-
tised as the "Chicago of the
Small farmers, forced from the
Midwest by drought, heard of
Florida riches and came south to
the rich muck lands of south Flori-
Roads and railroads were built
to bring in potential. buyers.
Wealthy capitalists like Barron
Collier, Henry Flagler, Richard
"Dickey" Bolles and many others
purchased thousands of acres for
development. A.L. Matthews'
Gladeview Farms was started in
the everglades east of Belle Glade.
William J. Conners, bought
17,000 acres to develop as farm-
land along the newly completed
Palm Beach Canal (1917) and
built a toll road (the present-day
State Road 70) to access it. He
named his development the
"Everglades Agricultural Area."
A book titled, "Florida in the
Making," published in 1926 said,
"... men of vision and resources
are creating wealth for them-
selves, for the State of Florida, for
the United States of America, and
for the settlers who are pouring in
to till the soil which they are
preparing for tillage, reaping the
rewards of creative vision and
Most people who bought and
sold land in Florida at that time
had never even set foot in the
state. They hired young, ambi-
tious men and women to stand in
the hot sun, show the land to
prospective buyers and accept a
"binder" on the sale. A binder
was a non-refundable down pay-
ment that required the rest of the
money to be paid in 30 days.
Many people got rich quick from
the commission they made from
these sales. With land prices con-
tinuing to rise rapidly, many buy-
ers planned to sell the land at a
profit before any real payment
was due. Sometimes land buyers
didn't even have enough money
to pay for the land; instead they
had just enough money for the
binder. They were depending on
the prices to keep going up.
To help spur growth, the Flori-
da Legislature passed laws that
prohibited state income and
inheritance taxes. During this
time, horse and dog racing also
grew in Florida as a way to attract
rich gamblers. The railroads con-
tinued to grow. Land was sold
and resold, inflating prices and
eventually leading to bankfailures
in Florida and Georgia even
before the stock market crash of
1929. The boom went bust.
The development of air condi-
tioning would help draw new res-
idents to Florida. In 1902, young
engineer named Willis Carrier
was asked to resolve a humidity
problem lor a publishing compa-
ny in Brooklyn, N.Y. Their paper
would expand or shrink with tem-
perature and humidity and it was
impossible to line up their type.
Mr. Carrier developed a'
method to chill, clean and de-
humidify air in a building. Soon.
other office buildings were air-
conditioned. After WWI, movie
theaters were. air conditioned,
then government buildings and,
in 1938, Philco marketed the first
window air-conditioning unit.
World War II sidelined private air
conditioning in support ofthe war
effort, but in 1955, Levitt Homes
in New Jersey sold the first air-
Florida had always been a
tourist Mecca,. but with air condi-
tioning, three of Florida's most
objectionable features were over-
come: heat, humidity and mos-
quitoes. The U.S. space program
came to Cape Canaveral, now
Cape Kennedy, bringing thou-
sands of workers and their fami-
lies to Florida.
The Mackle Brothers, under
various corporations bought hun-,
dreds of thousands of acres of
land in the late 1940s into the
1980s, developing Biscayne Bay,
Marco Island, Deltona, Port Char-
lotte, Port St. Lucie, Palm Bay and
Port LaBelle; hundreds of thou-
sands of acres, selling lots for $10.-
down, $10 a month for 10 'years,
advertising nationwide to buyers
who. again, often had never set
foot in Florida.
Little thought was given to any-
thing but selling, selling, selling
and platting more and more lots,
building more and more houses.
Little thought was given to the
result. The size of these lots was
sometimes too small for septic

tanks; drainage was often poor;
some lots were underwater;
andm some were a problem
because no physical improve-
ments were made by the promot-
er and were just "paper subdivi-
"Widespread growth contin-
ued until the 1973, when the
industry encountered several
problems: an economic reces-
sion, increased development
costs, more rigorous consumer
and environmental regulations,
an oversaturated market, negative
publicity and an energy crisis,"
said Hubert B. Stroud and-
William M. Spikowski in "Plan-
ning in the Wake of Florida Land
Scams. The subdivision of wet-
lands often caused the greatest.
conflict between private rights
and public needs. The continued.
subdivision of fragile ecosystems,
the scale of development and the
in ability or unwillingness of local
governments to control large
developments resulted in state
action to protect Florida's land
and water. Florida has enacted
some of the most stringent land
development regulations in the
Beginning in 1970, local com-
prehensive plans became manda-
tory and in 1985 this system was
overhauled according to Stroud
and Spikowski. "Believing that
many growth issues are too com-
plex to be managed at the local
level, the legislature created a top-
down system of growth manage-
ment. It added the concept that
became know as "concurrency."
A requirement that infrastructure
such as roads, sewer, and water
must be available before develop-
ers can obtain the necessary per-
mits to continue development."
The platted lots left behind by
eagerness for settlement and zeal
for quick money created a legacy
of problems like leaky septic
tanks, drainage problems, traffic
gridlock; overcrowded schools
and the need for increased taxes

Florida is one of the top pro-
ducers of watermelon in the Unit-
ed States, along with California,
Texas and Georgia. -Watermelon is
grown throughout the state. In
2004, Florida's cash receipts for
watermelon totaled over $67 mil-

same botanical family as squash
and cucumbers. Ancestors of the
modern watermelon grew wild in.
the Kalahari Desert and were val-
ued by the local people as an
important source of food and.
water. Archeological evidence sug-
gests that watermelon was culti-
vated in ancient Egypt more than
5,000 years ago, but it is not
believed to have reached Europe
until the Moors conquered Spain.
By the late 1500's the Spanish were
growing watermelons in Florida.
In 2004, Florida farmers plant-
ed 27,000 acres of watermelon.
Large "picnic" are still the most
common type grown, but increas-
ingly producers are switching to
the smaller "icebox" varieties their
name refers to the fact watermel-
on varieties are also gaining
ground because they are easy to
eat and even sweeter than tradi-
tional types; they also have a
longer shelf life. The latest trend at
gourmet markets is the softball-
sized, seedless "personal", water-
melon, which can, be eaten in a
Coleman offers this advice to
shoppers: "Look the watermelon
over carefully before buying it" she
said. "Choose a firm, symmetrical
watermelon that is free of bruises,
cuts, and dents."
Choosing a ripe watermelon is
very important, since melons
won't continue to ripen much
after they've been picked. Select-
ing a ripe watermelon is easy if you
know what to look for. Before buy-
ing, lift the melon. If it's ripe, it
should feel heavy for its size. Next,
turn it over. On the underbelly you
should see a creamy yellow
splotch. If the splotch is white or
green, the watermelon was har-
vested too soon.

Are pets safe
from West Nile?
The number of reported
cases of the West Nile virus has
decreased, but are our pets real-
h safe from the disease?
According to Michael Ward,
a professor of epidemiology at
the College of Veterinary Medi-
cine and Biomedical Sciences at
Texas A&M University, the West
Nile virus still poses a threat,
especially to horses.
"The virus was first identified
in 1937 in the West Nile district
of Uganda, Africa, said Mr.
Ward. "The virus then contin-
ued to spread across the
world," he said. "The first case
identified in the United States
was in 1999 in New York,.but
the virus didn't appear in Texas
The virus is considered an
arbovirus because mosquitoes,
which are arthropods, spread it.
"In most cases, mosquitoes bite
infected birds and transmit it to
other animals," said Ward.
"There have been experi-
ments where one infected bird
spreads the disease to, another
bird, but that usually doesn't
The virus affects mammals
and even reptiles, said Ward,
but only some of the species
show signs of the disease. "The
virus can cause encephalitis,
which is the inflammation of
the brain," he said. "The
encephalitis can cause weak-
ness, wobbling, dragging of the
feet and paralysis.
"Horses are probably the
most susceptible mammals to
the West Nile virus. "There have
been cases of humans becom-
ing infected, but horses usually
showings signs of the disease
more often than humans do,"
said Ward. "There have been
cases of the disease in dogs
"The most important thing
horse owners can do to prevent
their animal from contracting
this virus is to vaccinate," he
said. "Horses need to be vacci-
nated about two months before
the start of the mosquito season
for maximum protection."
There are two licensed vac-
cines currently available for
"These vaccines usually
require a series of two to three
shots and are 90-95 percent
effective," said Mr. Ward. "Both
vaccines are usually adminis-
tered by a veterinarian."
Other methods of preven-
tion include removing mosqui-
to- breeding sites such as stand-
ing water and litter from places
where animals are housed, said
Ward. "I suggest owners use
water troughs that can be
drained about every week to
prevent mosquito breeding."
There.is currently no cure for
West Nile virus, said Mr. Ward.
"Generally veterinarians use
supportive treatment to make
the animal feel better," he said.
"They give the animal antibi-
otics or anti-inflammatory med-
icine to help treat the symptoms
of the virus."
There has been evidence
that the vaccines help reduce
some of the symptoms if the
animal is vaccinated early, 'he
The West Nile virus caused a
scare with its outbreak in 1999,
but the presence of vaccina-
tions has caused the number of
reported cases to decrease.
However, Mr. Ward suggests
not to be fooled by the lack of
"The risk now is that people
will think the virus has disap-
peared and stop vaccinating
their horses, which could cause
another outbreak," he said.

Florida urges early vaccinations for horses
Charles H. Bronson is urging
horse owners to vaccinate their
horses against Eastern Equine
Encephalitis (EEE) and West
Nile Virus as mosquito season
gets under way. Four cases of
EEE have already been con-
firmed in Florida since January,
one as recently as this week,
even though the first cases are
not usually seen until May.
Mr. Bronson says the majority
of cases can be prevented
through proper vaccinations and
booster shots against mosquito
borne illnesses and he is remind-
ing horse owners that now is the
time to take action.
"Last year there were 150
reported cases of EEE across.43
counties, triple the number from
the year before when 48 cases of
the disease reported impacting
27 counties," Mr. Bronson said.
"Now that mosquito season is
upon us, it is critical that horse
owners take steps to protect
their animals. We have already
seen some EEE cases due to the
relatively warm winter and we
need to ensure that cases are
kept to a minimum."
EEE is a viral disease that
affects the central nervous sys-
tem and is transmitted to horses
by infected mosquitoes. Signs of
the virus include fever, listless-
ness, stumbling, circling, coma
and usually death. The disease is
fatal in horses in 90 percent of
Mr. Bronson says he is
pleased that no cases of West
Nile Virus have been reported so
far this year, and WNV cases
have continued to drop over the
years since a vaccination against
the disease became available in
"There was a lot of attention
paid to West Nile Virus when it
was first discovered in Florida in
2000. Horse owners did a very
good job in protecting their ani-
mals from this disease. We want
to be sure they are just as aggres-
sive in protecting horses against
EEE," Mr. Bronson said.
The Department and the
state's numerous mosquito con-
trol districts have strengthened
their surveillance, control and
prevention measures in order to
be better prepared for mosquito-
borne illnesses. There are ongo-
ing efforts to keep the mosquito
populations down, but because
there is no fool proof method to :
prevent the diseases, vaccina-
tions are critical.
So far this year EEE has been
confirmed in horses in Colum-
bia, Duval, Marion and Levy
counties, all of which were fatal.
