Webber President to retire


One of the nation's longest
serving university presidents,
Rex R. Yentes, announced Mon-
day, his intention to retire. In his
seventeen year tenure, Yentes
changed the face of the quiet
lakeside campus, offering its
first MBA degree and more than
doubling the size of its student
body. Celebrating its 80th year
of operation,. the University was
the first private college char-
tered as a not-for-profit school
under Florida's then new edu-
cational and charitable laws. A
women's college until 1971, the
University now boasts men and
women from some 37 different
countries.
aid Yentes, "Webber has
been my life for nearly the last
two decades, and I am honored
to have been able to serve it.


Over the years it has been my
pleasure to work with as fine a
faculty and staff as exists any-
where. The University is blessed
to have them. They're consum-
mate professionals, and they
will continue to do an extraor-
dinary job. As for the students
and our alumni, the number of
lives we've touched, and how
deeply we've touched them, it's
just overwhelming. But it's time;
Webber needs new ideas and
new leadership. It's the right time
for me personally as well; I have
a wide array of civic activities, a
number of wonderful hobbies, a
wonderful family which includes
a wonderful new granddaugh-
ter, and I have reached the age
where I need to devote my time
to enjoying the blessings which
have been bestowed upon me."


When Yentes took over the
University in 1990, it had only
219 students and was struggling.
Yentes added men's and wom-
en's soccer, men's and women's
golf, men's and women's ten-
nis, men's and women's track
and field, baseball, softball, and
football to recruit students and
enhance student activities and
development. He also added an
MBA program, added three ma-
jor scholarship programs, and
built most of the campus' major
buildings. The University's most
ambitious building project in its
history, two new state-of-the-
art student housing buildings,
which Yentes notes can still be
named for relatively modest do-
nations, will be .ready for occu-
pancy by January. Yentes leaves
the University thriving, though


still purposefully small. "It has
its challenges," says Yentes, "but
we think our students benefit
immensely from our being one
of the nation's smallest fully ac-
credited universities. They get at-
tention and experiences they just
could not get elsewhere. Many,
many years ago our Board made
a strategic decision to keep us
small, and it's proven to be the
right one."
Yentes will remain the Uni-
versity's President through Oct.
31, 2008. This will allow him to
oversee the completion of the
University's two new student
housing buildings as well as to
launch the largest capital cam-
paign in the University's history.
Both in honor of his contribu-
tions to the University and their
desire for a smooth transition,


the Board of Trustees has asked
Yentes, and hd has consented, to
assume the position of President
Emeritus after his retirement.
While a largely ceremonial post,
Yentes will assist his succes-
sor with the transition, as well
as remain involved in many of
the institution's fundraising ef-
forts and formal ceremonies. "I
think I might like to teach a bit
more," said Yentes. "In addition
to the classes we currently have
in our general education core,
we have a Business Communi-
cations degree rolling out, and
there are a number of courses in
it which I think would be fun to
teach." Yentes, who joined what
was then Webber College as an
adjunct professor, still teaches

Holiday



safety



advice
Halloween is a holiday that,-at
its best, is carefree, fun and ap-
peals to the child in all off us.
Frostproof's annual 'Trick or
Treat' night is scheduled this year
on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007 from 6
p.m. to 8 p.m.
Please contact your local City j
Hall to \eFr\ 'hat niLtu your
town will observe the Halloween
holiday.
The Polk County Sheriffs Office
asks you to remember these safe-
ty precautions before you light the
Jack O' Lanterns and send your
little goblins, witches and prin-
cesses trick-or-treating:
Homeowners should make
sure their yard, porch and walk-
ways are safe for youngsters.
Allow children to trick or
treat only at the homes of friends,
relatives or neighbors you know
personally.
.* An adult should accompany
children under 14. Older children
should have an ironclad curfew.
A cell phone is a good safety
item for groups of trick-or-treat-
ers.
When choosing a costume
remember to check costumes for
hazards: make sure masks or cos-
tumes do not obstruct vision, gar-
ments should be short enough to
prevent tripping as well as light in
color, avoid hard plastic or wood-
en props such as swords, add re-
flective tape to the costume and
make sure it is fire-resistant.
Stay on sidewalks and cross
only at corners. Caution children
to watch for traffic and don't run.
Don't cross the street from be-
tween parked cars.
Carry a flashlight. Chemical
light sticks are fun for kids and
provide additional warning to mo-
torists.
Motorists should drive care-
fully watching for all pedestrians.

A message from
Senator Alexander
Last week, the Florida Senate
passed legislation to place a con-
stitutional amendment before the
voters that would change how
property taxes are calculated
across the state. Along with many
of my fellow Senators from both
parties, I voted against this legis-
lation, which was only a part of
the necessary legislative policy
changes that needed to be passed
by the full Legislature to impact
Florida's current property tax is-
sue.
Simply put, this proposed
constitutional change did not do
enough to protect the rural coun-
ties and cities that I represent and
would have saddled them with
a financial burden too heavy to
carry.
Make no mistake, I support
property tax reductions and agree
that many local governments'
spending habits need to be reined
in so government growth and
revenue shouldn't continue to
outpace that of family incomes.
However, small counties and cities
also have the continued respon-
sibility to maintain public safety
measures, ensure fair elections
and continue the basic functions
of their governments delegated
by the state and the constitution.
For many of the small communi-
ties in my home district, balanc-


ing these two would be virtually
impossible under the legislation
just passed by the Senate.
Cities such as Frostproof,
Okeechobee and Avon Park to
name a few all have a small tax
base and if we eliminate taxable
property off their rolls, we leave
them with an even more limited
revenue stream to carry out the
basic functions their communi-
ties rely on.
Knowing that I could not sup-
port this policy change and that
the measure was going to pass
out of the Senate, I asked the
Senate to provide in statute for
financially disadvantaged coun-
ties and appropriate funds suffi-
cient enough to make up for the
revenue deficit that would result
from this change. It is vital that we
consider all of Florida's 67 coun-
ties when addressing the property
tax "remedy," especially our rural
and small counties that count on
their limited revenue streams to
provide for their residents.
When we return to Tallahas-
see next week, I will continue
to balance my support for real
property tax relief with the needs
of our small communities, and I
will make sure that the needs of
all our counties'are also consid-
ered when we decide on a final
measure to address the state's
property tax crisis.
Senator JD Alexander,
Senate District 17

lows Congress' decision to pro-

must reach the Division of Aqua-
culture by 5 p.m. Tuesday, No-
vember 6.
The federal assistance is lim-
ited to feed losses during the
period in question, and covers
actual damage to the feed, losses
sustained by producers as a result
of interruptions in feeding sched-
ules or feed cost increases caused
by damages to or shortages of
crops that are used to produce
the catfish feed.
Producers with questions
about eligibility for the aid are
encouraged to call the Division of
Aquaculture at (850) 488-4033.

Hickory Hammock Equestrian Center to open


Trail rides, hikes and
swamp buggy rides
set for Oct. 27 event

FLORIDA The South Florida
Water Management District will
hold a grand opening celebration
for the Hickory Hammock Eques-
trian Center on Saturday, October
27 beginning at 9 a.m. The public
is cordially invited to attend and
celebrate completion of the new
equestrian center, as well enjoy a
variety of recreational activities on
the property.
The equestrian center has been
developed in partnership with
the Florida Cracker Trail Associa-
tion, an equestrian group whose
members have spent many hours
marking trails and improving
the area for public use. Hickory
Hammock Equestrian Center has
stalls, picnic shelters, fire rings
and grills, a non-potable water
well with hand pump, two com-
posting toilets and night lighting,
along with primitive campsites for
horseback riders and others who
have horse rigs or camp trailers.
Tent campers are also welcome.
Marked equestrian trails, interior
dirt roads and fire breaks provide
riders with access to more than
10 miles of riding trails.


The Hickory
Hammock Site
This 4,470-acre property is
not just for horse enthusiasts.
The Florida Trail Assqciation, a
statewide group of avid hikers,
has spent many volunteer hours
marking hiking trails through the
area. A section of the Florida Na-
tional Scenic Trail -winds for 11
miles through Hickory Hammock
and through two adjacent public
use areas to the north, Bluff Ham-
mock and Boney Marsh.
Several primitive campsites
along the trail beckon hikers for an
overnight stay. Three miles north
of Hickory Hammock, a 25-foot-
high bridge rewards visitors with
a grand view of the gentle mean-
ders and marshes of the restored
Kissimmee River. Winding north
through Boney Marsh, the trail is
fringed with live oaks, palms, bay
and holly trees on the edge of the'
Kissimmee floodplain. At certain
times, hikers can continue north
through the Avon Park Air Force
Range.


Bicycling enthusiasts can en-
joy riding on a two-mile section
of the old Sebring Grade on the
south half of Hickory Hammock.
Now grassed and canopied by
overhanging tree limbs, the grade
once connected Sebring and Bas-
inger before U.S. Hwy. 98 was
built in 1949. You can also enjoy
bike riding on the interior "woods
road," an old ranch trail along the
hammocks.
Grand opening
The public, is encouraged
to attend the October 27 grand
opening to become familiar with
Hickory Hammock's many recre-
ational opportunities. Those with
horses are welcome to join the
morning trail ride guided by ex-
perienced riders from the Florida
Cracker Trail Association. A guid-
ed hike will be led in the morning
by members of the Florida Trail
Association.
Following the trail events, there
will be a short ceremony with
South Florida Governing Board
Chair Eric Buermann and rep-


resentatives from the volunteer
organizations. Pat's Barbecue,
of Lake Placid, will be providing
lunch for purchase during the
day, including hamburgers, hot
dogs, barbecue, water and soft
drinks. Following lunch, swamp
buggy rides will be available for
those who would like to see the
equestrian trail.
Location
The Hickory Hammock Eques-
trian Center is located at the end of
McArthur Road, four miles north
of the main Hickory Hammock
trailhead. The main trailhead at
Hickory Hammock is eight miles
southeast of Lorida, and about
one-half mile northwest of the
Istokpoga Canal (18 miles south
of Sebring and 33 miles north of
Okeechobee on U.S. Hwy. 8.)

project, please phone the SFW-
MD Okeechobee Service Center
