This year our Girls Softball
program has changed to Dixie
Youth. This will allow our girls to
play against more local teams.
Also any girl who plays one year
of Dixie Youth Ball may be eligi-
ble for a college scholarship. We
are very excited about the change

and are planning a major facelift
to our girls program. We need the
support of the girl softball players
in our community to make this
an awesome year. Our board's
special project this year is getting
our 13-15 year old Baseball and
Softball leagues back playing.
The boys program will contin-
ue to be Babe Ruth which has a
new rule this year which will
enable our 12 year old players to
"swing up" and play with the 13-
15 year old teams once a week

while continuing to play in their
Major division.
We have formed a partnership
with our local High School to
schedule senior league games
around the JV schedules so that
the players can play both Youth
and School ball. We also are get-
ting input from High School
coaches on how to strengthen
our ball program. The more our
athletes can play the more it will
benefit our High School teams in
the future.

Webber falls to Walsh University

The #16 Webber Warriors (5-
2) were unable to overcome their
many mistakes as they fell 21-31 to
the #15 Cavaliers of Walsh Univer-
sity (6-2). This ends the Warriors
five game winning streak and is
the first road loss on the season.
The Warriors were unable to over-
come a 10 point deficit at the half.
Turnovers and possession time
proved to be the downfall for the
Warriors. The Warriors showed a
lot of heart in the second half, bat-
tling back and pulling within 10
points, but were too late in the
game to capitalize on their rally.
Walsh received the ball to open
the game and went on a 6 play 62
yard drive which resulted in a
touchdown which put the War-
riors down 7-0 early in the game.
The Warriors were held to 3-and-
out on their first drive and followed
with a costly interception on their
second drive, which led to a Walsh
field goal and a Warrior deficit of
10-0. Webber then took the ensu-

ing drive 62 yards on 11 plays to
finish the quarter with a 2-yard
pass to Justin Mitchell for a Warrior
touchdown. This put Webber
back in the game will their lowest
deficit of the game, trailing by
three points. However, a short
kick-off and good return gave
Walsh the ball on the Warrior 38
yard line and they took eight plays
to score another touchdown.
Webber was unable to answer
despite a 14 play 78 yard drive that
took 3:28 off the clock, ending the
half with a score of 17-7.
The second half started with
three straight turnovers. The War-
riors fumbled the opening kick-off,
three plays later Walsh through an
interception to Rod Roberts, and
more plays later Dedrick Sykes
threw an errant pass that was
intercepted by the Cavaliers, giving
them the ball on the WIU 27-yard
line. Five plays later, Walsh quar-
terback Sam Cerreta threw a 16

yard pass to Donel Durham for a
touchdown that put Walsh ahead
24-7. Walsh scored one last time to
start the fourth quarter with a 1-
yard run by Running Back Dustin
Stewart, making the score 31-7. The
Warriors rallied back late in the
fourth quarter to score two touch-
downs within two minutes. How-
ever, this was two little two late, as
the Warriors fell to the Cavaliers and
dropped to 5-2 on the season.
Eric Potochney led the defense
with twenty total tackles and 3 for a
loss. Sacks were recorded by Line-
backer Josh Suggs and Rondell

Feral hogs are a non-native,
nuisance species that damage
natural areas, compete with
native wildlife and destroy vege-
tation. Feral, which means "hav-
ing escaped from domestication
and become wild," is a term
applied to three types of wild
hogs found in the United States:
feral hogs, Russian wild boar
and hybrids between these two
Florida has the second largest
wild hog population in the U.S.,

next to Texas. Wild hogs occur
throughout the state in various
habitats, but prefer moist
forests, swamps and pine flat-
woods. They may cause great
damage by rooting with their
broad snouts, leaving large areas
that look like plowed fields.
The SUMICA property was
purchased by Polk County
through its Environmental Lands
Program and the South Florida
Water Management District in
1999. Primary purposes of
acquisition were to protect Lake

Walk-in-Water and the Walk-in-
Water Creek shoreline, to pro-
tect the wetlands and marsh sys-
tems on site, to protect rare
species, and to provide nature-
based recreation opportunities
for the visiting public.

mation about the Polk County
Environmental Lands Program,

'One Stroke' art students painted mailboxes to send to vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina. RoseMarie Tippins-Beringer, of
Sebring, receives painting tips from Certified Instructor, Vicki
Alley at the Frostproof Art Gallery, Saturday, Oct. 29. The
Gallery will host another mailbox painting class Saturday,
Nov. 5. For more information call 635-7271.

Frostproof News/Cindy Monk
Lorri Jaques of Frostproof attended the 'One Stroke' art class
held Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Frostproof Art Gallery. Lorri has
enjoyed painting as a hobby since her high school years.

Mailboxes to benefit victims of hurricanes

After the hurricanes that blew
through Florida last year, many
people were blessed with beauti-
ful, hand painted mailboxes that
helped add some beauty back into
their lives.
This was made possible
through the generosity of many
decorative painters all over the
country. Donna Dewberry, a well-
known decorative artist is famous
for developing the 'One Stroke'
painting technique. Donna has cer-
tified instructors all over the county
who, with the help of their stu-
dents, painted hundreds of mail-
boxes for Floridians affected by last
year's hurricanes. They were sent
to Red Cross facilities in the affect-
ed areas that handed them out to

people whose mailboxes were
destroyed in the hurricanes. Now
it's time for us to return the favor.
Vicki Alley, a One Stroke Certi-
fied Instructor has made arrange-
ments with the Frostproof Art
League to hold painting sessions
at the Frostproof Art Gallery, locat-
ed at 12 Wall Strqet in Frostproof
or Saturday, Nov. 5 from 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m.
There will be a morning paint-
ing session and an afternoon
painting session on Saturday.
Everyone is invited and
encouraged to come by and paint
a mailbox. Please bring a new,
standard, post style mailbox and
paint brushes if you have them.
The paints and extra brushes will

be furnished.
SAll painters and non-painters
are welcome. If you have always
wanted to learn One Stroke, this
will be a good opportunity for you
to try it out.
Vicki Alley of Frostproof, Judy
Nicewicz of Avon Park and Dawn
Kelly of Lake Wales are all certified
One Stroke instructors and will be
on hand to help anyone who
needs it.
For more information or if you

would like to make a contribution
for the cause, please contact the
Frostproof Art Gallery at 635-7271,
or Vicki Alley at 632-1472.
If you want to help, but don't
want to paint, you can buy a mail-
box and drop it off at the Art
Please call the Art Gallery and
reserve your date and time, and
bring your friends, they want to
send 100 decorated mailboxes to
residents of the affected areas.

are noon to sunset, and for the
second and third phases, shoot-

before sunrise to sunset. The daily
bag limit is 12, but only four may
be white-winged doves.

Crows are legal game
statewide on Saturdays and Sun-

days only through Oct. 30, then
everyday Nov. 11 Feb. 18. There
are no bag or possession limits,
and shooting hours are one-half
hour before sunrise to sunset.
In addition to having a hunting
license, a migratory bird permit is
also required to take migratory
game birds in Florida. In order to
receive this permit, hunters have
to fill out a short questionnaire
when they purchase their hunting
license. The information they pro-
vide helps the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service get a better
assessment on how many birds

are harvested each year.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) suggest hunters peruse
the "2005-06 Migratory Bird Regu-
lations" brochures and the "2005-
06 Florida Hunting Regulations"
handbook at MyFWC.com/hunt-
ing. These publications also are
available from county tax collec-

What's ch

By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture Agent
As if Florida oak trees have
not had enough damage from
last year's storms, several resi-
dents have recently asked for
help in getting rid of a critter that
seems to be eating up many oak
trees. While the Pinkstriped
Oakworm is not a new pest to
the area, it seems to have cap-
tured the attention of several
homeowners, and is a good sub-
ject for this week's lawn and gar-
den article.
According to UF Entomolo-
gist John Foltz, there are several
caterpillars that can chew off the
leaves on local oak trees. When
caterpillars are numerous, they
can quickly strip trees of their
foliage. Most serious outbreaks
occur in late summer to fall.
While oak trees in forests gener-
ally survive these invasions,
greater damage is noted in
urban areas, where leaves
become ragged or disappear,
and the bugs and their waste
material is a nuisance.
The Pinkstriped Oakworm
(Anisota virginiensis) can be
found throughout the eastern
US and up into Canada. In Flori-
da, there are two other related
species of these oak-eating silk
moth caterpillars that differ in
color. The caterpillars now seen
in local areas are greenish
brown with four pink stripes
running the length of the body.
Their heads are fairly large and
green in color. These oakworms
can grow to about 2 inches long,
and have a pair of long, curved
black "horns".
During cooler months, the
oakworms rest in the soil as dark
brown pupa. The adult moths
emerge in late spring. They
appear brownish red with a pur-
plish tint on the front wings with
a small white dot. Moths meas-
ure 2-3 inches from head to the
tip, and the wings are usually
folded back over the body. Once
they mate, the female lays egg
clusters under the leaves, and
the little critters chew up leaves
for 5 to 6 weeks.
Oakworm populations can
become large enough to com-
pletely strip trees. Most oaks can

lands and offshore." But this "Ener-
gy Act" is no real energy policy -
something our country sorely con-
tinues to lack.
Instead of giving billions of dol-
lars to the oil companies to
increase our dependency on oil,
we should instead invest in renew-
able fuels such as wind, solar, and
fuel from oilseed crops. We can't
fix our problem of oil dependency
by continued oil drilling. And we
shouldn't allow the current oil cri-
sis to develop into an environmen-
tal one by opening up drilling to
our coastal waters and pristine
landsthat deserve to be protected.
Rather than going down the
same worn-out road that enriches
the oil companies and jacks up the
cost of gasoline for consumers and
business, why not embrace a new

handle one such defoliation
with little impact on their health.
However, repeated defoliations
will weaken the trees and lead to
infestation by secondary pests
and diseases. Trees that have
been stressed by flooding or
wind are more likely to suffer
from oakworm feeding.
Here are some steps for pro-
moting tree vigor and reducing
oakworm insect populations:
*Provide appropriate water
and nutrients to the tree
throughout the growing season.
Avoid over or under applica-
tions of both irrigation and fertil-
izers which may stress the tree
and make it more attractive to
*Watch for the moths and
look for clusters of small yellow
bumps under the leaves.
Remove these eggs and the
young colonies bf worms from
the lower branches. Trim them
off, smash them, or bag them
with household waste disposal -
not yard trash.
*If large numbers of caterpil-
lars are too high for hand
removal, contact a pest control
operator for application of an
appropriate insecticide.
Use of insecticides containing
Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) can
reduce caterpillar populations
with little impact to other benefi-
cial insects. Other chemical
insecticides can also be used,
but many of these homeowner
products can kill the good with
the bad, so careful application is

approach? Why not put Florida at
the forefront of blazing a new ener-
gy path the rest of the country can
We can start by enlisting the aid
of non-profit groups and universi-
ties that have been on the cutting
edge of promoting and developing
fuel efficient technology. Much of
the research has already been
done; our job should be delivering
the energy savings from the draw-
ing board and laboratory to the

imperative. Be sure to always
read and follow all label direc-
tions when using any pesticide.
The timing of sprays is also
important. Smaller caterpillars
are easier to manage than larger
caterpillars, so quick action after
initial identification will reduce
leaf loss. And, a second applica-
tion of insecticide within a
month of the first outbreak may
help reduce the second genera-
tion of these hungry worms.
Larger trees can probably
cope with some leaf loss; how-
ever, trees that are stressed and
smaller, younger trees are better
candidates for insecticidal treat-
ments. If larger trees are to be
sprayed, consider that a licensed
pest control operator has the
power equipment needed to
reach to tops of tall trees.
As with any pest control pro-
gram, identification of the pest is
the first step. If you suspect that
oakworms are taking your oaks
out to lunch (and dinner) place
a few live, unsmashed worms
into a bag or other container and
bring them to your local exten-
sion office for positive ID. Don't
leave them sitting on your dash-
board in the sun, as cooked
caterpillars are a bit more diffi-
cult to identify than fresh ones. If
we can't identify the bugs, we
can send them on to other Uni-
versity of Florida faculty that will
be able to tell us what's bugging
your oak trees.

Introducing the DemiDoseTM Pill Splitter

Radishes are ravishing

The Florida radish is one of
America's most popular garnish-
es. Radish roses, swans, tulips,
curls, and fans lend a decorative
touch to tables from Tacoma to
Tallahassee. But do these cheery,
cherry-red vegetables taste as
good as they look? The answer is,
emphatically, yes!
To kick up the flavor of your
favorite dish, look no further than
the radish.
Available fresh from October
through June, Florida radishes
have a juicy, crisp texture and an
earthy, spicy, peppery taste. One
hot bite of the snow-white flesh
can really wake up your tongue.
The bright green tops are edible,
Stood, and have a similar peppery
zing. Saute the tops in olive oil or
serve them in salads-their pun-
gent flavor probably will remind
you of arugula.
Most likely native to China but
domesticated in the Mediter-
ranean, radishes make appear-
ances in Egyptian tomb paintings
and ancient Greek texts. The
Greeks were apparently so fond
of this fast-growing crop that they
offered radishes on golden plat-
ters to Apollo. The Romans liked
radishes, too, and carried the
seeds to northern Europe. By the
early 1600s, they were being
grown in Massachusetts. The
colonists at Plymouth used
radishes as a digestive aid and
spring tonic; they ate the roots
with salt and bread and pickled
the seedpods.
Today, Florida is the leading
producer of radishes in the United
States and harvests over 30 per-
cent of the country's radish
acreage, wish most of Florida's
radish farms found in Orange and
Palm Beach counties, where the
warm, sunny climate is ideal. The
value of the state's radish crop is
estimated at $30 million year.
"Florida growers produce
radishes primarily for the fresh
market," Florida Agriculture Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson
said. "Radishes are most com-
monly used as a garnish or minor

salad ingredient, but these versa-
tile vegetables can and should be
prepared in many other exciting
ways. Radishes are inexpensive,
delicious, and nutritious, and they
are worthy of a more prominent
place on our menus."
Radishes are diet-friendly, free
of fat and cholesterol, and half a
cup has only nine calories. That
same serving size contains 135
milligrams of potassium, which
helps maintain proper blood
pressure, and 14 percent of the
recommended daily allowance of
vitamin C.
Fresh Florida radishes are
available in grocery store produce
sections across the nation and at
community farmers' markets
around the state. When shop-
ping, look for firm radishes with
smooth, bright, unblemished
skin. If the leaves are still
attached, they should be short,
fresh, and green. Avoid radishes
that are soft, spongy, or cracked.
Large radishes can be. pithy and
woody tasting, so choose smaller
ones instead; about the size of a
To get the longest shelf life, cut
off the tops and store separately
from the roots. Keep the roots in
a plastic bag in the refrigerator
crisper and they'll last up to two
weeks. Before using, scrub well
and trim off the ends. Don't peel.
Radishes can be eaten raw,
pickled, roasted, baked, sim-
mered, steamed, boiled, fried, or
microwaved. Grate them into egg
or potato salad to add some extra
zip, or enjoy them just as they are,
right out of the bag-they make a
convenient, bite-sized snack.
Radishes also taste great in hot
dishes. You can drizzle them in
olive oil and roast in the oven just
like potatoes. Add to stir fries and
pilafs for crunch and tangy flavor.
For a little taste of France, saut6
them in butter with wine and
herbs and top them with dollops
of sour cream. A dainty tea sand-
wich with minced radishes and
plenty of cream cheese will trans-

port you instantly to England.
The Florida radish has a lot of
possibilities, as these recipes will
show you. It's a fun, zesty, useful
vegetable and you don't need to
carve it into a rose. For more

DemiDoseTM half-splits many high-priced brand name prescription
medications, and does so with 92% to 100% accuracy.
DemiDoseTM features different pill beds for different pill sizes within
particular families of medication. It is more accurate for more
medications than any other splitter on the market today. The
Doctor who designed DemiDoseM made it safe and easy to use
even for individuals with tremor disorders or visual impairments.

DemiDoseTM can save you between 35% and 55% on the cost of
many brand name prescription medications.

How is it possible to save
so much?
The secret behind saving 35%
to 55% on your monthly
prescription costs is that many
medications are "flat-priced."
"Flat-priced" means that all
tablet sizes of a medication cost
about the same. Because these
medications are flat-priced, an
80 mg tablet costs the same as a
40 mg tablet. Split it in half and
one 80 mg tab is equal to two
40 mg tabs,

After you consult with your MD or
Healthcare provider, and show
them your DemiDoseTM pill splitter
they should prescribe your medica-
tion at twice your current tablet
size, but indicate you take only 1/2
tablet daily. Instead of paying
for 30-tablets per month, you now
pay for 15-tablets that are twice
the size of what you now take.
When you half-split those larger
tablets, you use'flat-pricing' to your
