rotation of all others present who
had questions.
Maryann Moore from Saddle
Bag Lake Resort, who has been
staying in a mobile home behind
her church for the last three
months, was the first citizen to
ask Jeff Spence "when was the
County going to start pumping
the water out of Saddlebag?"
She added that she was thank-
ful that the church has let her stay
there, but would like to know
what is going to happen to her
home in Saddlebag. Mr. Spence
said the county is scheduled to
begin pumping the water by the
weekend. He added that there
had been some issues with pri-
vate property owners and resi-
dents of Lake Rosalie who are
worried about the contaminated
water coming down their way.
"Why people weren't warned
that this could happen and why
were they allowed build in these
areas?" Mrs. Moore asked. Mr.
Spence replied that when these
areas began building the state and
county did not have National
Standards in place.

Mrs. Moore then asked what
are the people to do when their
homes are destroyed, who can
they look to for help? Mr. Spence
replied that the county can not
spend money on private proper-
ties. He advised folks to be careful
spending money on repairs until
the long term reports are conclud-
ed which are expected in four to
six months. Mrs. Moore said she
wasn't mad, just heartbroken,
and felt this isn't the way to do
Sally Rouwhorst a resident of
Sugar Sands Mobile Home Park
located on the southeast end of
Lake Clinch asked when would
the residents there be seeing help
from the city, county, state or fed-
eral officials. She said only eight of
42 lots can be rented due to flood-
ed roads and yards covered with
green slime, foul odors and mold
as well as an abundance of
snakes inhabiting the mobile
home park. She went on to say
the owner is still having to pay the
taxes on a park that can only rent
less than a quarters of its rental
potential. She wanted to know
why the area from Crooked Lake
that originally was the cause for
Clinch Lake's rising water level
could not be shut down until

Clinch Lake could have a chance
to recede.
This was not an option accord-
ing to Mr. Spence and Mr.
Cyphers. Mrs. Rouwhorst, extend-
ed an invitation to the city, county
and SWFWM officials to stay for a
week free in a mobile home on a
lot at Sugar Sands to get a true
feeling of what it is like to live in
these conditions. No one voiced
an interest in the invitation.
Frostproof property owner
Vernon Lambeth said his 17-acre
property on Clinch has been dev-
astated. He said several other peo-
ple living on Clinch Lake have
been hurt due to the county's
decision to clean out the ditch
that led from Crooked Lake to
Clinch Lake instead of working
from the lower levels of the clean-
ing project and moving upward.
He's concerned if the value of his
property will ever revert back to a
gainful price.
Several residents attending
Thursday's meeting vocalized
that they feel the county as well as
the state should step up and take
responsibility for their action to all
the individuals who have lost and
continue to loose property and/or
revenue due to an action made in
haste by the county and SWFWM

to relieve the Crooked Lake rising
water issue.
Mr. Spence and Mr. Cyphers
said that the citizens coming
together forming a committee
and holding meetings was a good
thing. Both said they would be
available to attend future meet-
ings in hopes to help implement a
long term plan to see that this
does not repeat in years to come.

The SPCFLM committee is plan-
ning to write a letter to Governor
Bush as well as sending a signed
petition asking for help for this

Webber defeats
Campbellsville in OT
The Webber International War-
riors (1-1) traveled to Camp-
bellsville, Kentucky to take on the
Tigers of Campbellsville University
(0-1). The Warriors started off slow
against the Tigers as they fumbled
the kick-off on the 18 yard line,
where Corri Irving recovered the
ball. This opened up the opened
up the opportunity for Camp-
bellsville to score, which they took
advantage of with 14:07 left in the
first quarter, Stephen Hatchell hit
Bryan Short for a 13 yard touch-
down pass. This wrapped up the
scoring for the first quarter.
The Warriors came back in the
second quarter, shutting out the
Tigers and taking over the lead. KC
Tolson ran the ball to score with
4:39 left. Ojeda came in and made
the field goal to tie the game. The
Warriors were able to get the ball
back with less than a minute to go
in the half off a blocked punt by
JaMarcus Watkins. This gave

Ojeda the chance to kick a 46 yard
field goal to theWarriors on top 10-
7 at the end of the half.
Campbellsville came back out
strong in the second half, scoring
off a pass from Hatchell to Josh
Dye for a 45 yard touchdown only
3 minutes into the third quarter.
Webber answered the score with a
touchdown to KC Tolson to start
the fourth quarter. Campbellsville
got the ball back after Webber
went for and didn't make, a fourth
down conversion on the Tiger 31
yard line. The Tigers drove down
the field with the help of Josh Dye
who made a great one handed
snag for 26 yards. Campbellsville
scored just three plays later with
2:55 left in the game. They could
not make the extra point as
Spenser Stockbarger was able to
block the kick.
On the ensuing kick-off, Jere-
miah Chambliss returned the ball
to the Webber 41 yard line.
Dedrick Sykes drove the Warriors
down 47 yards to the Camp-
bellsville 12 yard line. Carlos Ojeda

was able to convert the field goal,
tying the game and sending the
game into overtime.
The Warriors had the ball to
begin the overtime period. Jordan
Green dropped a pass from Sykes
that would have been a touch-
down, however a roughing the
passer call gave the Warriors a first
down on the seven yard line. Tail-
back Vernon Reed took the hand
off for a touchdown on the next
play. The Warrior defense held
strong, putting Campbellsville into
a fourth and one situation on the
two yard line. Campbellsville quar-
terback, Steven Hatchell, made an
impossible pitch with three
defenders on him to tailback Eric
Moore for a touchdown. However,
a second overtime was not to be,
as kicker Sheldon Estes could not
make the extra point, giving the
Warriors a one point victory 26-27
over the Campbellsville Tigers.
Tailback Vernon Reed had 125
yards on 21 carries with one touch-
down and KC Tolson also had a
good game, contributing 100 yards

on 14 carries and a touchdown.
Dedrick Sykes led the Warriors,
passing for 107 yards, completing
11 of 21 passes. Sykes' favorite tar-
get was receiver Chad Pearce who
had 52 yards on 4 passes. Eric
Potochney led the team with 17
total tackles and Rod Roberts had
seven tackles, two for a loss and a
forced fumble.
The Warriors, now 2-1 on the
season, travel to Selma, Alabama
next Saturday to take on Concor-
dia College.

Webber Volleyball lose
The Webber International Uni-
versity volleyball team lost in three
straight games (30-25, 30-23, 30-
26) to Savannah College of Art and
Design on Saturday, Sept. 17 in a
12:00pm game.
The Warriors (8-2) were led by

merchants and from the Universi-
ty of South Florida Lakeland's Stu-
dent Government Association,

Here's the schedule:
KICKOFF- Sept. 21, 11 am to 1 pm

to balls stuffed with meat and
Cubanitos (Cuban sandwiches).
BREAKFAST- Sept. 28, 7:30 to 9:30

ings on shaped pieces of wood
that recalls her childhood in Cuba
yet is full of warmth and hope.
"This is the first year we have
planned for a Hispanic Heritage
Month and we are excited with
the events that will be taking
place," explained Sheila Rios.
"We are even more excited about
the possibilities to expand the list
of activities and events for our sec-
ond year. The committee hopes
that this expansion includes the
ability to offer a scholarship.

Hurricane reminds Floridians of historic storms

By MaiyAnn Morris
The tragic results of Hurricane
Katrina on the Gulf Coast:
destruction, flooded possessions,
loved ones .torn from safety's
grasp and no end in sight to
exhausting heat and humidity,
scarce food and medical treat-
ment are a reminder of the past to
the dwellers of the Lake Okee-
chobee area.
Felix Oliver Wilder was born in
Florida a month after his family
moved here in January of 1918.
Mr. Wilder was eight years old
when the1926 Hurricane hit Lake
Okeechobee. In a 1983 interview,
he told this account to Ruth S.
Irwin, who recorded the history
for the University of South Florida:
"Very few people remember
the first storm in 1926 but I
remember it hit us in a hard way
because of the location of our
house. It must have struck in July,
and itwas a hurricane to us.
"The day this hurricane blew

Floyd Oliver Wilder left a
detailed account of his expe-
rience in South Bay during
the Hurricane of 1926.

in, my father and Mr. Nimmie (a
neighbor) had gone to South Bay.

They had walked across the road-
way, crossed the canal in a row
boat, and walked down the south
side of the canal into South Bay.
They left the boat tied up on the
south side of the canal. My two
brothers, one sister and I were
home alone when the rain began
to fall and the wind off the lake
began to blow.
"The dike holding back the
waters of Lake Okeechobee was
breached and the water began to
flow in all around us. The diked-
up roadway that was being built
held back the water like the rim of
a bowl. We were soon trapped in
ten or twelve feet of water. I
noticed that Nellie, the horse, was
swimming in the water. The
house filled rapidly and we were
forced to leave. We swam
through the wind and the rain to
the diked-up roadway and
climbed on top of it.
"We huddled on the road beat-
en by wind and rain. Mr. and Mrs.
Hudson and their children, who

lived on toward Bean City from
us, made it to the road and all of
us huddled there together. I heard
Mrs. Hudson cry out over the
sound of the wind, "Oh Lord!
Why do you do this to me?"
"A piece of tin flew by at this
instant, hit her on the head, and
knocked her out. About this time
my father and Mr. Nimmie
appeared on the other side of the
canal a welcome sight to all of
"They immediately brought
the boat over and began to ferry
us to the south side of the canal,
two at a time. Mrs. Hudson came
to and she was not hurt too bad.
Soon, we were All on the other
"We went south out into a
field about a mile from the canal
and all of us crawled into a corn
crib half filled with shucked corn
and pumpkins. We chewed dry
corn and raw pumpkin when we
got hungry, as there was nothing
else to eat. We stayed there until

the next afternoon.
"The water began to drain
back in the lake when the storm
died down and the wind abated.
"We made our way home to
find that the house had been
flooded and all of our food was
ruined. Black, soupy mud had
soaked our mattresses and bed-
ding and lay four to six inches
deep on everything. My father
went to South Bay and got food
from V. C. Denton's grocery store
and brought it back to us that
same afternoon. "The Fordson
tractor had been completely sub-
merged. They had to replace a
coil in each of its four cylinders.
They drained and dried it out and
finally got it running again.
"Lots of fish had blown out of

the lake, and water lay in pools all
around. Melvin (Mr. Wilder's
brother) was trying to kick a cat-
fish out of the water and the fish
finned him through his boot. It
did not hurt him very much, but it
wouldn't have mattered if it had
for there was not a doctor any-
where around.
"I heard, a long time later, that
the wind blowing from north to
south in this July hurricane or big
storm, pushed the water from the
north side of the lake. The people
in Okeechobee walked out on the
dry lake bed and gathered up fish
quite a way out before the water
came back again."

A new slimy invader takes over Florida

By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
One of the visitors to our
recent Pond Appeal program
came as a special invited guest.
She didn't walk in, but came
along in the bottom of a bucket:
At one point, this fist-sized snail
slimed her way off the observa-
tion plate and was headed for
the floor. Now this wasn't a plate
of escargot, but a new slimy
invader in Florida. Hopefully, this
will be the first and last time our
county has a visit from the Chan-
neled Apple Snail, a new inva-
sive pest in Florida.
One kind of applesnail is a
native of Florida freshwater
areas. It is the primary food
source of an endangered bird,
the Everglades Kite. Unfortu-
nately, two other kinds of snails
found in Florida are invaders.
Our visitor, named "Tiny" by
local Extension Agents Janet
Bargar and Ken Gioeli, was
found recently in a Vero Beach
canal. If she wasn't executed
after our class, she and her off-
spring would have gotten bigger
and eaten up all kinds of plants
in and around ponds and lakes.
The native Florida applesnail
(Pomacea paludosa) can be
found anywhere in the Florida
peninsula. It should be consid-
ered a good guy, as it is the prin-
cipal food of the Everglades Kite
(Rostrhamus sociabilis
plumbeus). The native
applesnail has been here since
the end of the Ice Age. It cannot
survive low winter tempera-
tures, so it is not found in north-
ern Florida unless the water is
artificially heated. At full size, it's
slightly bigger than a quarter.
The shape of the spiraling shell
includes a low rounded shell
A slightly bigger spiketopped
applesnail (P. bridges) was
introduced into South Florida
from Brazil in the 1950s. They
feed mostly on decaying vegeta-
tion. It doesn't like the cold, so
escaped "spikers" are only
known in Broward, Miami-Dade,
Monroe and Palm Beach coun-
ties. Unfortunately, commercial-
ly bred aquarium varieties, like
the "albino mystery snail", are
sometimes dumped into ponds
and have been recovered as far
north as Gainesville.
However, it is the third
species, the Channeled
applesnail (P. canaliculata) that

is a concern. It grows to be near-
ly twice the size (up to 4 inches)
as the other two species and has
become a serious rice pest in
many countries. Introduced into
South Florida from Paraguay in
1978, it was also released into
Hawaii and Asian countries. It
also can host a human parasite,
the rat lung worm, making it a
problem for human consump-
tion as Escargot.
The Channeled applesnail
can survive out of water for up to
5 months, and can hibernate in
the mud during cold weather. It
can live for more than two years,
making it desirable as an aquari-
um pet. In Florida, the species
has been found in warmer
coastal areas like Collier, Hills-
borough, Palm Beach counties.
Recent reports have it in Semi-
nole County and even in Jack-
sonville. It is now found in Texas
and California and has caused
alarm there because of their rice
The problem with this critter
is that it feeds aggressively on
many types of aquatic and ter-
restrial plants, such as taro and
rice. But, before the idea of it
being used to control aquatic
weeds is brought up, it does not
eat Brazilian Pepper, cattails or

Besides size, this snail can be
distinguished by the deep groove
or channel between the whorls
of the shell. Another item to, look
for is the grape-like clusters of
pink to red eggs. The females
crawl out of the water and
deposit what looks like pink
caviar on walls or grasses above
the water. Sighting clusters of up
to 1000 pink eggs is the fastest
way to determine if applesnails
are present.
Compared to the eggs of
native apple snails, those of
"Tiny's". relatives are smaller,
pinker, and more numerous.
Eggs darken and hatch in one to
two weeks, releasing hundreds
of juveniles into the lake. Physi-
cal removal of eggs and adult
snails would help in reducing
the numbers of these invasive
Although there might be
some local wildlife that will eat
these snails, our predators have
not shown much interest in or
ability to eat them. They threaten
native plants and, wildlife by
feeding on the aquatic plants
needed by invertebrates that are
fed on by small fish, which are
themselves eaten by larger fish
like largemouth bass and crap-

which are larger lighter in color
and are fewer in number than
the eggs of the invader. Any pink
egg masses or adults found in
the wild can be easily removed
from hard surfaces near the

and frozen.

Stucco may not be to blame for storm leakage

By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Stucco, a
cement-based product used to
coat buildings, may have been
wrongly blamed for causing at
least some of the leaks that struck
thousands of Central Florida
homes during the 2064"'hiffitane
season, says a University of Florida
expert investigating stucco's water
"The intensity of those storms
raised some new questions about
home construction in Florida," said
Wendell Porter, an assistant
research scientist with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences. "We are looking at one of
them how is stucco affected by
prolonged exposure to horizontal
rainfall? I think it's too early for any-
body to have a definitive answer."
Mr. Porter's initial findings
showed that a water spray simulat-
ing ordinary rainfall did not soak
through stucco-coated panels even
after 10 hours of continuous expo-
sure, he said. But the next phase of
the UF study, expected to begin in
early 2006, will blast the panels
with hurricane- force rain and
"It sounds odd, but we want to
stress the stucco to the point of fail-
ure," Porter said. "Then we can
duplicate the conditions in a con-
trolled environment and learn how
the failures happen."
The study will help determine
whether current construction prac-
tices could be improved, he said.
But it could also resolve a yearlong
controversy over storm damage.
During Hurricanes Charley,
Frances and Jeanne, thousands of
homes in the Orlando area suf-
fered serious leaks that ruined car-
pet, drywall and other materials,
he said. Some builders made
repairs free of charge but others
refused, saying hurricanes were

AP/University of Florida/
IFAS/Josh Wickham
Wendell Porter, a researcher
with the University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences in
Gainesville, checks stucco-
coated panels for water dam-
age Thursday, Sept. 15,
2005. Porter is investigating
how .rain and wind affect
stucco, a cemerit-based
building material blamed for
causing leaks in thousands
of Central Florida homes dur-
ing last year's hurricanes. He
says in-depth studies are
needed to show how the
problems occurred.
"acts of God" not covered by
"Homeowners asked what
went wrong, and some people
were quick to blame stucco, saying
it's porous and therefore leaks
were unavoidable," Porter said.

"That's an oversimplification.
There are many variables that
could cause a home to leak during
a hurricane. As far as stucco goes,
the composition, use, application
and maintenance could all affect its
water resistance."
SA mixture of portland cement
and other materials such as sand or
lime, stucco is considered a tough,
durable coating for the exterior
walls of buildings, he said. Stucco
is commonly associated with
Spanish-style architecture typical of
the U.S. Southwest but is also pop-
ular in Central and South Florida.
"Once you get south of Ocala,
the majority of Florida homes have
a stucco exterior," Porter said. "So
we need to understand how to use
this material properly in hurricane-
prone areas, and the way to find
that out is to look at one variable at
a time."
Porter's initial goal is to deter-
mine how much rain and wind it
takes to cause significant cracking
and leaking in large, stucco-coated
panels that simulate exterior wall
sections of typical Florida homes,
he said.
The study involves 20 panels, all
measuring 4 feet by 8 feet and built
according to Florida building code
requirements, he said. Each panel
is slightly different from the others,
to make it easier for the
researchers to assess which con-
struction formats are more water
In the first phase, which has
been completed, researchers were
able to confirm that water did not
penetrate the stucco by examining
the interior of each panel through a
built-in opening, Mr. Porter said.
To prepare for the second
phase, students in a UF agricultural
engineering class are developing a
fan-like device to generate winds
mixed with water droplets, he said.
When the device is built, Mr. Porter
will cut small sections from the

Flu season overlaps hurricanes

TALLAHASSEE In preparation
of the 2005 flu season, Florida
Department of Health (DOH) offi-
cials urge Floridians, especially
those 65 years of age and older, to
make an appointment with their
primary health care provider to
receive a flu vaccine. Since flu sea-
son can begin as early as October,
it is best to schedule an appoint-
ment now to ensure you are vacci-
nated before it starts.
"The best protection against flu
is to get vaccinated every year. I
strongly encourage Florida resi-
dents to call their doctors now to
schedule a flu shot for October or
November," said DOH Secretary
John O. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.P.H. "Getting vaccinated not only
helps protect you from getting sick
with the flu but it also helps protect
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) in Washington D.C., influen-
za-related deaths average 36,000
per year, mostly among the elderly.
Influenza results in about 200,000
hospitalizations per year.

Steps have been taken to
ensure that enough vaccine is avail-
able for those at the highest risk for
complications from influenza. CDC
recommends that the following
priority groups receive trivalent
inactivated influenza vaccine (TIV)
prior to the end of October when-
ever possible:
persons aged 65 years and
older with chronic medical condi-
residents of long-term care
persons aged two-64 years
with chronic medical conditions
children aged six-23 months
pregnant women
health care personnel who
provide direct patient care
household contacts and out-
of-home caregivers of persons in
high risk population
The majority of flu vaccine was
administered through private
physicians, clinics, hospitals, long-
term care facilities, community-
based clinics and other public ven-
ues. DOH estimates that it
facilitated the distribution of almost

2.67 million doses of flu vaccine in
Florida over the 2004-2005 flu sea-
Since prevention is the key to
reduce the probability of contract-
ing flu, here are practical steps to
stop the spread of flu:
Clean hands often with soap
and water or an alcohol-based
hand cleanser.
Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth.
Stay home when you are sick
and keep sick children home.
Avoid close contact with peo-
ple who are ill, if possible.
Do not share eating utensils,
drinking glasses, towels or other
personal items.
Cover your nose and mouth
with a tissue when you cough or

your private physician or personal
health care provider. For more

panels and subject them to simu-
lated hurricane conditions, with
winds of up to 110 mph.
Once the researchers under-
stand how the panels perform,
they will begin a third phase of the
study, changing different aspects of
the panel construction to try to pro-
duce better water resistance, Mr.
Porter said.
"Eventually, we may be able to
recommend some changes to the
Florida statewide building code,"

he said. "I'm sure we'll learn things
bit by bit as we move along."
UF researchers may want to pay
special attention to the composi-
tion of the stucco they use, espe-
cially if it includes sand, said
Michael Roberts, a stucco expert in
Orange, Calif. In the mid-1990s,
Roberts ancjpolleagues conducted
a study that showed sand quality
had a significant effect on stucco's
water resistance.
Sand containing substantial

amounts of clay encourages leaks,
he said, because clay particles
expand dramatically when wet
and then shrink as the stucco dries,
leaving empty spaces where water
can enter.
"We tried out many different
combinations of materials, and we
found pretty much what we
expected," Mr. Roberts said. "The
poor qualty mixtures leaked, and
the high quality mixtures did not."
