Virus sickens
116 passengers
FORT LAUDERDALE A total
of 108 passengers and eight crew
members became sick with a
stomach virus on a five-day
Caribbean cruise that returned
home on schedule Saturday, Royal
Caribbean International said.
The mass outbreak of a Nor-
walk-type virus aboard the
Enchantment -of the Seas was
traced to a man who had symp-
toms two days before boarding the
ship Monday, said company
spokesman Michael Sheehan. A
special cleaning of the 1,950-pas-
senger ship was expected to delay
Saturday's scheduled departure no
longer than a few hours.
Passengers preparing to board
were given letters explaining the
cleaning delay and were cautioned
about the need for proper hand-
washing during the cold and flu
season.
The cleaning process involves
use of disinfectants, especially in
"high-touch" areas such as coun-
tertops, railings, exercise equip-
ment, remote controls, light
switches, elevator buttons and
computer keyboards.
Norwalk-like viruses, which
affect 23 million Americans a year,
were blamed for a rash of cruise
ship illnesses more than year ago,
prompting the U.S. Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Prevention to
investigate several lines.
Symptoms, which include nau-
sea, vomiting and diarrhea, last up
to 48 hours and require no special
medical treatment. Sick Enchant-
ment passengers were given over-
the-counter medications.

Authorities seize
marijuana plants
CLEWISTON Authorities on
Friday seized more than 30,000
marijuana plants in one of the
state's largest drug busts of its kind.
Eleven men were arrested on
charges of conspiracy to possess
and possession with the intent to
distribute 1,000 or more marijuana
plants, according to the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office.
The arrests were made on
Wednesday by the U.S. Drug
Enforcement Administration,
which executed a search warrant
at six grow houses in a subdivision
about 10 miles southwest of
Clewiston, Fla., The News-Press
reported.
It took dozens of law enforce-
ment officials from southwest.
Florida until Friday to collect all the
evidence. Officials had to use a
semitrailer and two large moving
trucks just to transport all the mari-
juana plants, said Hendry County
Sheriff Ronald Lee.
"They had them growing in
kitchens, bedrooms and bath-
rooms," Lee said. 'Anywhere there
was a room, they had those incu-
bators growing."
The 'estimated value of the
plants was $60 million, according
to the U.S. Attorney's Office.
Agents found thousands of
marijuana plants in plastic contain-
ers inside and outside the houses.
Each house had between one to
two acres covered with the plants,
Lee said.
"They determined this organi-
zation was using indoor grow
methods and transferring them to
outdoor grows that were more
camoflauged," said Joe Kilmer,
spokesman for the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration's Miami field
division.
The men arrested were: Alexis
Miguel Gonzalez, Jorge Luis Gutier-
rez, Pedro Garcia Guiterrez,
Ermurjdo Hernandez, Luis Hatuey.
Penalver, Jose Rigoberto Perez,
Panfilo Chaves Perez, Juan Roche,
Yoagdy Rojas Guevara, Noslen
Hernandez Romero and Arman-
dou Vidal, the U.S. Attorney's
Office said.

Debris
"I'm affiliated with one of those mobile home parks, and after
several unsuccessful attempts to get an answer from Waste Man-
agement. The editor calls and gets what they consider a reason-
able answer. Fortunately, the list does exist. However, the contract
that lists those parks has been sitting in the lap of Waste Manage-
ment for over a month now. I've contacted a few public officials
and have been told that Waste Management hasn't signed the
contract yet and it will be at least three to four weeks until that is
done. Meanwhile, our pile sits; making a cozy home to whatever
critter decides to move in. It looks like the ball has been dropped
several times." (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. We contacted
the county and were told the contract with Waste Management
has been signed.)

Texas Tea
"I want to thank J.K. Murray III for his letter to the editor about
Texas Tea. It is the funniest thing and it is so truthful. I am framing
mine. Thankyou Mr. Murray."

Waiting
"I am sitting on Dean Road trying to take my daughter to Year-
ling Middle School. We have been sitting here for 22 minutes
because you can't get around the train it is just sitting there. I
realize that these people have to work and I am completely sym-
pathetic to that, but between 8 and 9 a.m. while we are trying to
get our children to school? By the way, I'm sitting with about six
school buses. Traffic is backed up from the train tracks all the way
to S.R. 70, and the train tracks all the way to the school."

"Maybe the newspaper can help me, why are the Home
Depot, Lowe's or chain restaurants being kept out of Okee-
chobee? We need some more restaurants and we need a Home
Depot or a Lowe's and I just wondered why. Is it the county com-
missioners or city commissioners keeping them from coming in?"
(Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. The decision for such franchis-
es to enter a market is normally based on whether there is enough
population there to make the store profitable. In the past we've
spoken. with different franchises about coming to Okeechobee
and the answer has always been the same: they don't feel they
can make enough profit here. However, as Okeechobee contin-
ues to grow such franchises may well decide to come here.)

Young Teacher
"In your want ads today you have immediate opening experi-
enced full time two year old teacher., I don't understand that, I
wonder what a two year old teacher could teach?" (Editor's Note:
Thanks for calling. How about sandbox? Or, finger painting? Seri-
ously, we regret the typographical error.)

Do not just give any of your Medicare numbers or other per-

Letter to the Editor


Prayer in schools
Today I want to talk to each of
you about something that is and
has always been very important,
but it seems that less and less are
seeing it the way they should
until, if they are lucky enough,
they live to an age in their life
where they feel it's time to read it
and believe in it.
As you walk up the steps to the
capitol building which houses the
Supreme Court, you can see near
the top of the building a row of
the world's law givers and each
one is facing forward with a full
frontal view it is Moses and The
Ten Commandments. There are
Bible verses etched in stone all
over the federal buildings and
monuments in Washington, D.C.
James Madison, the fourth
president, who was known as the
father of our Constitution made
the following statement: "We
have staked the whole of all our
political institutions upon the
capacity of mankind for self-gov-


ernment, upon the capacity of
each and all of us to govern our-
selves, to control ourselves, to
sustain ourselves according to the
Ten Commandments of God."
Patrick Henry, that patriot and
founding father of our country,
said: "It cannot be emphasized
too strongly or too often that this
great nation was founded not by
religionists but by Christians, not
on religions but on the gospel of
Jesus Christ."
Every session of Congress
begins with a prayer by a preacher
whose salary has been paid by the
taxpayer since 1777. Fifty-two of
the 55 founders of the Constitu-
tion were members of the estab-
lished orthodox Churches in the
Colonies.
Thomas Jefferson worried
about the fact that the courts
would overstep their authority and
instead of interpreting the law
would begin making the law. The
very First Supreme Court Justice
John Jay said: "Americans should
select and prefer Christians as

their rulers."
It used to be that we always
had prayer at all schools, at all ball
games, and about everywhere
people gathered for a benefit.
In 1962 Madalyn Murray O'Hair
got enough atheists signature so
that our 35th president, John
Fitzgerald Kennedy, signed into
law that there would no longer be
prayer in our schools. And in time,
it came to be that no more prayers
were given at any sporting event.
Tell me Christians, what has
happen to our beliefs? Why can't
there be prayer in schools? Why
can't there be prayers at every
sporting event? Why can't we, as
Christians, turn back the clock to
what our forefathers believed in?
Does all our money still say "IN
God We Trust", or is that going to
change also?
We still have prayer at a lot of
different events, which we should,
but my main concern is: Why not
back in schools and why not back
at all our sporting events?
In 1962 this atheist proved that


it could be taken away. Now, by
the new election of a president in
2008, all we have to do is get the
signatures that we need to have it
put on the ballot, So all registered
voters can vote yes to having
prayers back the way it should be.
I'm not saying President
George W Bush is not more than
willing to sign it back into law;
what I am saying is it takes the
people to make sure it is done. I
would love to see a special ballot
in the next two years where we
had the chance to vote on it, but it
will take a lot of people who really
are Christians to get this done.
I'm leaving this whole service
of mine in your mind, or in your
garbage. Believe me, true Chris-
tians can make a difference for
today and the future of tomorrow.
I thank you all for your support,
love and kindness and by the
grace of Christ, I will return next
week.
Still and always
Your brother in Christ
Rev. Paul E. Jackson, Sr.

The greens at Tesoro are impeccable, and so are the views.


Palmer course to be completed soon


By Daniel Shube
When developer Bobby Ginn
announced plans to build a high-
end golf course community in
Port St. Lucie, he raised many
eyebrows. After all just a few
years ago, you could purchase a
building lot for just a few thou-
sand dollars. This developer has
long-term vision though. Now
the Tesoro Club has crowds
fighting over lots that go for hun-
dreds of thousands.
Now what could distinguish
this property and make it worth-
while to build homes that are
valued so high? If you are a
golfer, you can start with the
King. The first course to open at
Tesoro will be the Palmer
course. I recently visited to find
all but a couple of holes com-
plete. The course was in pristine
condition, with only a handful of
rounds played daily so far. It is
scheduled to be completed with-
in the next few weeks. If you
aren't one of their few members,
you mighf have to shop for a
home to get an invite. Be careful
though, if you take a tour of the
property, you may end up buy-
ing! That may not be a bad thing
though! ...
In addition to the Palmer
course, there are another 27
holes planned which have been
designed by Tom Watson. Con-
struction has not commenced
yet due to delays caused by an

is devoted to conservation and
has been working closely with
the International Audubon Soci-
ety to keep peace with nature.
After playing the Palmer course,
I have no doubt that the Watson
course will also be spectacular
and worth the wait.
Even the amenities are on a
grand scale. The driving range
was conditioned better than
most fairways you'll see. My
foursome was given a forecad-
die, who attended to our every
need. When I saw the pro shop
building, I just assumed it was
the clubhouse- wrong! It was
just the pro shop an even
grander 60,000 sq. ft. clubhouse
was being build next to it. When
complete, it will include a spa,
fitness center, ballroom and
more.


This Palmer course features many caries over wetlands as
well as unique doglegs requiring use of more than just driv-
er off the tee.


When you become a mem-
ber, you'll also have member-
ship in an exclusive Hutchinson
Island beach club, complete
with cabanas, an elevated pool,
exercise room, surf shop and
restaurant and grille.
The homeowner/club mem-
bers, who got in early, were the
smart ones. Initial offerings sold-
out immediately. I'm sure that
their investments have already
increased in value. There will be
additional opportunities in the
spring. If you are interested in
learning more about this incredi-
ble community and golf club, go

Prices were good and we're off to a
good start in '05'. Winter storms and
Canadian border openings may
effect prices, and keep your eye on
Japanese trade. These will be the
major market factors in the near
future. But for now everything looks
good.
Joe Hogan, Palmdale sold the top
calf price this week with a high of
$2.20. Ashley Vickers, Fort Pierce
sold the high cow this week with a
high of $64.
Join us Friday, Jan. 28, at 5:30 p.m.
