Group helps with storm recovery


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Help with long-term hurri-
cane recovery efforts is on the
way for the citizens of Okee-
chobee.
This past week, because of
the efforts of a local recovery
organization, a seven-person
group representing Lutheran
Disaster Response has been in
the community helping with
tree removal on private prop-
erty.
They were here under the
sponsorship of R.O.A.D.
(Rebuilding Okeechobee After
Disaster), a long-term hurricane
recovery group composed. of
Okeechobee faith-based and
non-profit organizations.
The objectives of R.O.A.D.
are to provide coordinated
management of long-term
recovery efforts, provide assis-
tance to individuals who do not
have adequate personal
resources and to advocate for
ongoing preparedness for
future disasters.
The tree removal group is
from St. Paul Lutheran Church
in Aiken, S.C. They were staying
at St. Peter Lutheran Church in
Fort Pierce. The group is rrrade
up of retired people, some of
whom are veterans of several
disaster recovery efforts. The

he brought it to the airport.
Broward Sheriff's Office
deputies arrested Gerard Grasso,
45, of Elmira, N.Y, Thursday at the

national Airport.

bag. Deputy Steve Barreto
searched the bag and found a 25-
caliber pistol in a front zipper
compartment.
Grasso told deputies he forgot
the gun was in his bag.
FHe was arrested and charged

Police take
pilot off plane
LAS VEGAS An AirTran Air-
ways pilot was charged with oper-
ating an aircraft under the influ-
ence after a federal screener at
McCarran International Airport
smelled alcohol, authorities said
Thursday.
Las Vegas police escorted Oliv-
er Paul Reason Jr., 37, from the
cockpit of the AirTran plane short-
ly after he passed through the air-
port checkpoint late Wednesday
morning, according to the Trans-
portation Security Administration
and police.
The flight, which was bound
for Atlanta, was canceled and its
60 passengers were all helped to
make flights with other carriers or
later AirTran flights, said Tad
Hutcheson, an Atlanta-based Air-
Tran spokesman.
Officers took the pilot to anoth-
er area of the airport and adminis-
tered a Breathalyzer, which he
failed, the spokesman said.
If the Federal Aviation Adminis-
tration finds that the pilotwas
intoxicated on the job, he will be
barred from flying, FAA
spokesman Donn Walker said.
Principal convicted
of molesting student
SARASOTA The principal of
a small Christian school was con-
victed of sexually molesting a
female student.
The Rev. Jerry Lee Pitts, 38,
was found guilty Thursday of lewd
and lascivious battery and
molestation. He faces up to 15
years in prison when sentenced
later.
Pitts started.a sexual relation-
ship with a former Living Water
Academy student who was 15 at
the time. The girl is now 17.
The victim testified that she
started attending the school in
March 2002. Shortly afterward,
Pitts sexually assaulted her in his
wife's office, in a trailer parked on
school grounds and in the com-
puter lab.
Two women testified that Pitts
also raped and molested them at
about the same age as the victim,
and never reported it to the police.
Both are now 24. Because the
statute of limitations ran out on
their cases, they could only testify
to show a pattern of behavior by
Pitts.
The' Sarasota school is part of
the Living Word church.

pected in at least 79 Hillsborough

through the air conditioning vents.
In the plea agreement, Romeo
agreed to talk with authorities
about other thefts linked to him in
Hillsborough and the location of
any stolen merchandise.
Detectives broke the case using
DNA. Investigators tested cigarette
butts, a soda can and a beer bottle
left at crime scenes.

ally ignited.
Fire crews responded to the
alarm about 2 p.m. An on-scene
commander reported two hours
later that the fire had been extin-
guished.

Brandy is a 5-year old dark brown
thoroughbred mare, with her
mane shaved in typical polo pony
style. The top of her tail has also
been shaved in polo pony style.
The identification tattoo inside
her upper lip is D22556; (2)
Honky Tonk is a 6-year old thor-
oughbred mare and chestnut
(red) in color. She also has her
mane and upper tale shaved. The
tattoo number inside her upper
lip is C35738.
Both horses have been
described as highly trained, in
excellent physical condition and
very friendly.
"These girls are like my family.
They are both tattooed and
should be easy to spot. Their
manes are reached (shaved) and
should have grown in about an
inch by now," said Mr. Lyn-Kee-
Chow. "There have been possible
sightings of the rig on the' Friday
and Saturday following the theft.
But, nothing is definite. I will con-
tinue to look for my girls. I just
want them back."
Anyone with information per-
taining to the whereabouts of
these horses, truck and trailer are
asked to contact the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office at (561)

George Long reminded the com-
missioners that this tax incentive
does not convey any special priv-
ileges. The manufacturer would
still have to comply with the
county's existing regulations.
In another matter, George
Dukes of Okeechobee Citizens'
Recreation Association (OCRA)
appeared before the board to
request expansion of the con-
cession stands at the sports com-
plex. He noted that 750 to 800
players a year use the facilities
plus 1,500 parents. He also
noted that OCRA hosts two state
girls softball tournaments and
they are bidding on two boys
baseball tournaments.
Mr. Dukes claimed these tour-
naments would bring in close to
2,000 people, who would spend
$7,500.
In light of those facts, he
requested the concession stands
be expanded 6 feet on each side.

Commissioners looked at
drawings of the proposed
changes and county staff was
instructed to provide cost esti-

stormwater project in the
southerwestern part of the coun-
ty that would interconnect with a

It is anticipated that 75 per-
cent of the funding could come

state.
"We don't know for certain if
we will get funds or if the project
will be doable," said Mr. Long.

ment. Mr. Terry Turbeville has

halftime. The second half wasn't
quite as productive, but their

itate chooses DCF workers' savings plan


TALLAHASSEE State work-
ers will continue to handle applica-
tions from people seeking food
stamps, Medicaid, welfare and
other benefits, but about 4,400
state jobs will be cut from the pro-
gram by 2007, Gov. Jeb Bush said
Thursday.
Workers in the Department of
Children & Families created the
plan to streamline the work that
decides who among millions of
poor Floridians is eligible for the
Economic Self-Sufficiency pro-
gram.
The department had also con-
sidered giving the work to a private
company.
But Bush said Thursday that
agency Secretary Lucy Hadi told
him Wednesday that she had
decided to accept the state work-
ers' plan and he agreed. It should
save taxpayers $69.2 million a year,
money that will be reinvested to
make it easier for poor families to
apply for help, according to a draft
of the plan.
"I feel like this is the best
approach and that the state
employees have reformed their
systems," Bush said.
The agency has already begun
some of the savings.
Before they were started, the
self-sufficiency program had about
6,800 workers handling applica-
tions. When the plans are fully in
place in 2007, it will have about


2,200 workers. Front-line workers
who deal with applicants will be
replaced by private companies.
Officials with the American Fed-
eration of State, County and Munic-
ipal Employees did not return
phone messages after hours seek-
ing comment.
More jobs could have been lost
if the state decided to turn over the
work to a private company, DCF
spokesman Bill Spann said.
"This is a win-win solution for
both the employees and the cus-
tomers. Floridians will benefit
through improved access and
much faster customer service,"
Spann said.
Applicants for benefits will be
able to get help in more places,
using more modern technology,
Spann said.
The plans were presented to the
Center for Efficient Government,


the group Bush asked last year to
review whether privatization saved
the state money.
"We essentially put it to the.
employees and said, 'Hey, how can
we do this better?'" Spann said.
Last month, a key DCF adminis-
trator in charge of contracts
resigned and warned that many of
the agency's major contracts were
being rushed through too fast. The
Bush administration has been
plagued by problems trying to pri-
vatize state contracts, most recently
at DCF.
Jerry Regier resigned after a
rocky two year tenure as the
department's secretary after admit-
ting ethical lapses after reports that
he and top aides socialized with
several of the vendors doing busi-
ness with his agency.

4 OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Saturday, January 15, 2005


Speak Out
Exercise your right to free speech. Speak out is a free 24-hour
opinion line. Call and express your opinion or ask question
about public issues. You are not required to leave your name.
While we want you to speak out freely, the newspaper reserves
the right to edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness.
To speak out call (863)467-2033, fax (863)763-5901 or e-mail:
okeenews@okeechobee.com. You can also mail submissions
to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.

No Help
"I agree with the Speak Out caller that asked 'are we the keep-
ers of the world?' What happened when our hurricanes hit Flori-
da? I wonder if Kuwait one of the richest countries in the
world and who we saved if they sent any money over here to
help us? All these rich countries we've helped, did they ever help
us? I think the answer is no. But, we're always there to help
them."
Abstinence
"It's been brought to my attention that a lot of young people
in this town have HIV, and a lot of them are in school. I just want
to warn the parents out there to teach your children your chil-
dren abstinence, because the schools aren't doing it, and stop
the spread of this deadly disease. This needs to be brought out
and nobody is doing it."

Insulting
"Unbelievably the White House is still trying to make a con-
nection between 9-1-1, Saddam Hussein and bogus weapons of
mass destruction how insulting."

Studebaker
"In regard to the picture that was in Sunday's paper, it said it
was taken in the 1900s of the fish camp. It had to have been
taken after 1950 because, in the left hand corner, the automobile
with the door open is a Studebaker Champ. It was manufactured
in South Bend, Ind. I just thought somebody would like to
know."

Wondering Why
"I agree with the keepers of the world. How can we spend
hundreds of billions of dollars on aid in war when our own coun-
try can't even save our Social Security or education and health
programs? I do think we should help, but doesn't charity begin at
home? But what difference will this statement make? So many'
like me will sit at home and wonder why."
Considerate Bus Drivers
"I would like to say thank you to the school bus drivers that
actually pull off the road to allow cars to go by rather than letting
miles of cars line up behind them and risking the children when
they try to pass. Thank you to the considerate bus drivers who,
every mile or two, will pull over to let the line of cars pass them.
We appreciate your consideration to the cars behind you and the
safety of the kids on your bus."
Thank You
"I am calling to say thank you to out-of-state roofers and those
companies that have come in to Okeechobee to help. There effi-
ciency is just so appreciated."

Inauguration
"If George has a long walk in to his inaugural like other presi-
dents did, I hope he hasn't been drinking."

TAMPA New York Yankees
owner George Steinbrenner gave
a Tampa high school marching
band the financial boost it needed
to get to the presidential inaugural
parade next week, donating
$37,000 to help with travel
expenses.
Steinbrenner, who lives in
Tampa, on Thursday offered the
Gaither High School band the dif-
.ference between what students
and parents had raised and the
estimated $90,000 they needed for
the trip to Washington.
"Oh my gosh, oh my gosh,"
excited band booster vice presi-
dent Becky Myers said after hear-


ing the news.
Students have struggled to
raise the money since learning last
month they will be the lone Flori-
da representatives in Thursday's
parade. Families were going to
have to pitch in more to make up
the rest without the contribution,
Myers said.
The band has five charter
buses taking 165 student perform-
ers and instruments, as well as 70
chaperons.
"Mr. Steinbrenner just wanted
to make sure these kids had an
opportunity of a lifetime," said
Howard Grosswirth, vice presi-
dent of marketing for the Yankees.


Fishin' Line


By Lorna Jablonski
According to local bait shops
and bass guides, fishing has
been good the last several
weeks even though the water is
very dirty.
But, they are pulling specks
in at Cody's Cove, King's Bar
and in the Kissimmee River.
Most speck anglers are having
success using live minnows.
With the Headturners3.com
two-day pro bass tournament
taking place this weekend, fish-
ermen and guides are hesitant
to disclose where the large-
mouths are hitting. They did hint
that bass are being caught with
big bladed, brightly colored
(white or bright chartreuse)
spinnerbaits around King's Bar
and Tin House Cove. They also
stated that fishermen should not
be afraid to fish the dirty water.
These are not ideal conditions,
but fish do adapt to their sur-
roundings.
Even though the water is
dirty, bass are still being caught.
When fishing dirty water, the
angler that thinks big will have
the most success. Big baits
should be the angler's choice
because the bigger baits will dis-
place more water and the fish
can 'find' them easier.
Another thing, big blades


BNEY&

ABNEY
CONSTRUClON, BC


allow the spinnerbait to be
fished a little more slowly and at
a constant depth.
Although they will have some
success, willowleaf blades
aren't normally the top choice
for fishing dirty water. Although
willowleaf blades are great
when fishing grass and vegeta-
tion, they don't create a lot of
flash or vibration.
The best choice in dirty water
would be a Colorado blade
because it creates more vibra-
tion. A willowleaf blade would
be the second choice.
Finally, big noisy baits such
as rattling crankbaits can be
very effective in dirty water.
Again, the size plus the sound
makes the bait easier for the fish
to find.
The Big "0" Teen Anglers are
having their first fishing tourna-
ment Saturday. They will take to
the water at 7 a.m. from Scott
Driver Ramp and return there for
their weigh-in at noon. The pub-
lic is invited to attend and cheer
on these up-and-coming junior
anglers.
The Headturners3.com two-
day bass tournament takes
place this weekend. Weigh-ins
for that tournament will be at
Okee-Tantie Marina beginning at
3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

28th Street, Wolff Road, one block
behind Pizza Hut, in five dramatic
presentations starting Sunday, Jan.

Dramatic Christian Ministries is
a mission of Bible Demonstration

tions are interacted with those in
the audience.
Like Scripture itself, the presen-
tations are very personal. The mes-
sage points to the nature of Jesus'
person and His written Word as
one and the same and this under-
standing brings light to the Bible.
Dennis Cole is the founder,
director and producer of Dramatic
Christian Ministries. Mr. Cole has
answered the Lord's call to min-
istry by using his experience and
gifts in acting. As a full time minis-
ter, he travels all over the United
States and the world doing these
Biblical presentations.
The following is a schedule of
the presentations: Sunday, 10:30
a.m., Sermon on the Mount and 6
p.m., The Book of James; Monday,
7 p.m., Romans 9 11; Tuesday, 7
p.m., Acting ONE John 15;
Wednesday, 7 p.m., Temple and
Olivet Discourse.
Plan to be present for each of
these dramatic presentations.
Nursery will be provided for chil-
dren, from three months to three
years.

Couple dies

when winds

hit trailer
ARLINGTON, Ga. A couple
was killed when heavy winds tore
through their southwest Georgia
neighborhood, destroying their
mobile home and two others.
Five people were injured.
Authorities found the bodies of
John and Dorris White thrown 20
yards from their home in Arling-
ton, 35 miles southwest of Albany.
The winds swept the trailer's
frame from its cinder blocks and
into a tree.
, The National Weather Service
reported a possible FO tornado,
the weakest possible tornado
with winds of 40 to 72 mph, hit
two miles south of Arlington at
about 6 p.m. Thursday.
"Mobile homes are extremely
susceptible to any kind of elevat-
ed wind gust," said Weather Ser-
vice meteorologist Mark Wool.
"So it could easily have been a
severe thunderstorm gust that
flipped this mobile home over."

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Play Structure
Here's an outdoor play structure with something for
everyone. For kids, it's a tree house, fort and jungle
gym all rolled into one. For parents, it's a sturdy
playhouse with a safety-conscious design and a
clean, unobtrusive look. It features a smooth hard-
board slide, two sandboxes and a gable roof with a
canvas top.
The structure stands a little more than 10 feet tall
and is 6 feet square (not including the ladder or
slide). The floor is about 5 feet off the ground.
