Miracle 1aby: Has beaten the odds


JUNO BEACH Florida
Power & Light Co. said Friday it
will ask the state Public Service
Commission to charge cus-
tomers more in 2006 because
population growth has driven
up operating expenses and
investment costs.
The Juno Beach-based utili-
ty company said the increase,
the first since 1985, would go
into effect next Jan. 1.
Ranging from $400 million
to $450 million, it could add $3
to $4 to the monthly bills of typ-
ical 1,000 kilowatt-hour resi-
dential customers, the compa-
ny said.

Olivia Burgundy Jade Howard celebrated her third birthday on Friday, Jan. 21. She
defied all odds at birth to become a healthy, happy 3 year old.

Child celebrates special birthday


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Olivia Burgundy Jade
Howard celebrated her third
birthday Friday. Everyone cele-
brates their birthday at one
time or another,.but Olivia's is
special because by all odds,
she should not be here.
Olivia's mother Paula
Howard was on kidney dialysis
four times a week for four
hours each day when she
found that she was pregnant
with Olivia. In fact, Mrs.
Howard was scheduled for
kidney transplant surgery.
She was in her physician's
office for pre-operative tests
when the technician came into
the examination room and
asked her if she knew that she
was pregnant. Mrs. Howard
could not have been more sur-


prised.
"I had no idea that I was
pregnant. I already had a still-
born and lost another while
carrying it due to rare compli-
cations, so this was a complete
surprise to me," she said. "I
was very happy until the doc-
tors came to me and said that
they felt it would be unsafe for
me to carry this child. They
said that the child would not
make it and that because of my
health and the dialysis, it
would put my life at risk to
attempt to have this baby.
"I am a believer. I won't
take a life to save a life, but I'll
give a life to someone if it
means my life. No matter what
I was told, I stuck by my deci-
sion," she added.
Mrs. Howard spent the last
three months (November


through January) of her preg-
nancy in the hospital. She con-
tinued to have her dialysis
treatments four times a week
while confined in the hospital.
While there she woke up one
night with the name Olivia
constantly running through
her mind. She had no friends
or relatives by that name so
she decided to look it up. What
she found convinced her that
her baby girl would be named
Olivia.
"I looked the name Olivia
up in a book of names that I
had. When I saw what it
meant, I was sure that the Holy
Spirit had given me a sign that I
had done the right thing. The
book said that the name meant
'alive'. Another meaning for

Storm chasers film Charley


By MaiyAnn Morris
Special to the
Okeechobee News
Storm chasers are people
who get up and go to the storms
instead of hunkering down in
the house the way most people
do.
Okeechobee has its own
storm chaser, Jeff Gammons,
whose work on Hurricane
Charley will be viewed at the
Miami Film Festival next month.
Mr. Gammons is a professional
storm chaser. He used to visit
his great-grandmother Eva
Lang, here and now has moved
here.
"I've been chasing storms
since 1996," said Mr. Gammons
"I've always loved stormy
weather and photography, so I
decided to make a job of it."
Mr. Gammons also films
short weather films called "trail-
ers," for The Weather Channel.
"I have wireless internet in
my car, so I can film anywhere I
go. With the equipment in the


car I can upload to a TV station,
giving them pictures in 30 sec-
onds," said Mr. Gammons.
Friday, Jan. 14, he and fellow
storm chasers were aired in a
television interview. Film clips
from the two disc set "Septem-
ber's Fury 2004" showed dra-
matically just how vicious the
hurricanes were.
Weathervine is the name of
the club of storm chasers he has
started here in Okeechobee.
Weathervine's members gather
in Okeechobee to exchange sto-
ries, socialize and to meet for
their trips to the storms. The
club members always travel to
the central United States in April
and May for tornado season.
"It's relatively safe. We have
radar and other forecasting
equipment in the vehicles with
us," said Mr. Gammons. "Torna-
dos usually travel in a northeast-
erly direction, so we stay to the
south of them. That way we
have good visibility, too."
Hurricane Charley, filmed by
Weathervine members, the


only live camera crew in Punta
Gorda during the hurricane,
was a different matter.
"Charlie was the first storm
that made us fear for our lives,"
said Mr. Gammons. "We really
weren't sure we'd make it out
alive."
Hurricane Charley was sig-
nificant for both storm chasers
and filmmakers.
"It was the first category 4
hurricane to hit the United
States during daylight hours,"
said Mr. Gammons, "and we
were able to get it on film."
Weathervine is a member of
the National Storm Chasers
Convention, an international
group of about 500 members.
Weathervine has a website,
www.weathervine.com for
more information and some
outstanding weather-related
links and video.
Mr. Gammons and other
members of Weathervine will
be at the Trading Post Flea Mar-
ket on U.S. 441 South, Sunday,
Jan. 23.

Wrongly convicted man
seeks compensation
PORT ST. JOHN A man
freed after serving 22 years behind
bars for a rape he didn't commit
plans to ask the state Legislature
for about $4.9 million in compen-
sation and is getting some high-
powered help with his request.
Wilton A. Dedge, 43, walked
out of the Brevard County Jail with
no compensation after DNA evi-
dence exonerated him Aug. 12 in
the 1981 rape of a 17-year-old girl.
He left the county jail with a
few possessions in a plastic bag,
but without a bus ticket or the
$100 the state gives to most freed
convicts.
Now, Dedge and his attorneys
are asking legislators to pass a spe-
cial claims bill worth about $4.9
million in compensation for lost
wages, wrongful imprisonment
and costs incurred by his family
and lawyers. Dedge was convicted
in 1982, and again in 1984 on a
retrial.
Dedge's lead counsel on the
bill is Talbot "Sandy" D'Alem-
berte, former president of Florida
State University.
Since there is no provision to
compensate those wrongly con-
victed, a special claims bill has to
be passed.
Panel says judge
should be removed
ORLANDO Florida Circuit
Judge Jim Henson should be
removed from office for advising a
client, while still in private prac-
tice, to flee to Colombia to avoid
charges, the Judicial Qualifica-
tions Commission said Thursday.
The JQC also found that Hen-
son represented the client when
he was still sitting as an Orange
County judge in late 2000.
The commission urged the
Florida Supreme Court to remove
Henson from the bench.
"The panel concludes that
Judge Henson's actions were
inconsistent with the responsibili-
ties of a judicial officer and that
Judge Henson is unfit to hold judi-
cial office," the panel said.
Neither Henson nor his attor-
ney, Kirk Kirkconnell, could not be
reached for comment late Thurs-
day, the Orlando Sentinel report-
ed.
Aides complained
of teacher's abuse
SANFORD Teacher's aides
at a central Florida middle school
complained several times over five
years that a special needs teacher
was abusing autistic students, an
investigator's interviews showed.
The four aides told John Byerly,
a Seminole County school district
investigator, that they saw inci-
dents of abuse and reported sever-
alto administrators at South Semi-
nole Middle School.


Garrett, 48, has pleaded not
guilty to five counts of child abuse.
She was arrested in November.
The charges against Garrett
include breaking one student's
teeth, locking another in a dark
closet, and abusing three other
by hitting them, bending back
their fingers and jabbing them
with her elbows.
Garrett. has resigned, and the
Florida Department of Education
is investigating whether to revoke
her teaching certificate.
The four aides were suspended
with pay pending an investigation,
which is ongoing.

Students participate in Future City Engineering Challenge


Saturday, Jan. 15, at a very
early 3:30 a.m., a team of three
eighth graders, three teachers and
one engineer mentor along with a
support team of six more students
headed down to Florida Interna-
tional University in Miami to par-
ticipate in the 2005 Future City
Engineering Challenge.
Earlier in the school year a


class of advanced math and sci-
ence students were involved in
the South Florida Regional Future
City competition. The purpose of
this challenge to middle school
students to encourage them to
think with originality, using their
skills in math, science and engi-
neering, to imagine the problems
and solutions of tomorrow's


cities. They had several chal-
lenges to complete. First they had
to use SimCity software to create
a city that "exists" in the year 2010
or later. Throughout this process,
the teams of three students had to
provide their Sims with all the
necessities of life. They had to
reach certain levels of population,
taxes, services and quality of life

issues. Once their city was com-
pleted, they then had to select a
portion of their city and make a to
scale model using as many recy-
cled materials as possible. Finally
they had to prepare a research
paper on the use and develop-
ment of aggregates.
In order to complete this proj-
ect, the school invited people
from the community to serve as
mentors to these students. Com-
munity members who volun-
teered to mentor a team were Alli-
son Murphy and Gary Ritter from
South Florida Water Manage-
ment; Bill Royce, Okeechobee
City Planner; Randy McCall of Pil-
grim Construction; Ed VanCamp,
architect; Engineers Chad Rucks,
Marcos MontsDeOca of LBHF;
Steve Dobbs of Rudd, Jones and
Associates, Craig Yates, teacher at
Okeechobee High School and
Larry Brown, retired engineer.
These mentors met with the stu-
dents and helped them design
their city and models. Teachers
Magi Cable, Vicki Goggans and
Theresa Forde were in charge of
the three tasks. Mrs. Goggans
handled the SimCity part; Mrs.
Cable and her endless recycling of
materials was the logical choice
for model building and Mrs. Forde
led the students through the writ-
ing and presentation process.
From the class, a final group
was selected as being the best of

the group. Mat Stevens, Laura
Torres and Vick Patel were then
chosen to represent Osceola
Middle School at the Regional
competition in Miami. Steve
Dobbs served as their engineer
mentor. This was to be our inau-
gural appearance.
The competition pitted seven
private schools against four pub-
lic middle schools. Several of the
schools had participated before
and experience did help. While
the team did not place in the top


three, invaluable information
was gathered for future competi-
tions.
The school's participation
would not have been possible
without the support of Jeff Sabin
of Waste Management, Inc. He
provided a grant that allowed the
purchase of materials needed for
the project. He would also be
extremely proud of the amount of
recycled materials that were used
in the models and did not enter
the waste stream.

4 OPINION


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.

War
"I understand that this action we have in Iraq is called a war.
Well, I'm a veteran of WW II and I can just imagine the uproar it
would create if a Marine went through a court martial and was
given an eight-year jail sentence for shooting the enemy on Iwo
Jima because some news hungry reporter sent this to the news
rag he worked for. Those insurgents have been taught from the
time they could walk that it is glorious to give their life to kill
someone who doesn't believe the way they do. Now the media is
trying to tell our soldiers not to shoot anyone unless they shoot at
you first, or you will go through court marital proceedings. Just
who is running the war over there, the generals or the newspa-
pers?"
Social Security
"The very people who are making decisions about Social
Security do not contribute or participate in Social Security. The
president and congress have their own pension plan, so do they
really care about all the rest of us?"
Thanks
"Many thanks to the gentleman who helped my husband up
after his scooter had turned over with him down here on the
street. Many, many thanks."
FPL Rates
"This is about FPL; I think it is outrageous that they were
granted that price increase due to the storms. That is a natural
disaster that no one is responsible for, yet the consumers of FPL
are being forced to pay for it. They said if they find out they don't
need the money it will be returned to them; well, the thing is,
they get to use that money all the way between now and then to
make interest to do whatever it just isn't fair. It's not our fault
we got hit by the hurricanes, and we should not have to pay for it.
That is the cost of doing business."
Pot Hole
"I am calling in about the bad pot holes on Wolff Road, S.W.
28th Street. There's has been a bad place in the road since the
hurricanes. I have seen them working on it, can they not get this
repaired? Do we need to call somebody else outside of this coun-
ty to fix a small place in the road that has bad pot holes? Can the
Okeechobee News find out when this might be repaired before
the cars are ruined on this road?" (EDITOR'S NOTE: Thanks for
calling. The last time we spoke with the county about this we
were told that there are several paving jobs to be done in the
county, and when a paving company is hired they will do them
all at the same time. No specific date was given as to when the
projects would be started or completed.)
Inauguration
"I was watching the inauguration on television and I noticed
the procession after the luncheon that they were heading down
the street and just like the country he had them heading the
wrong direction, they were going the wrong way down a one
way street."
Needs Lights
"I saw on the news where we will be using touch'kreen vot-
ing machines. I wish they would put some lights in Teen Town. It
is so dark in there you can hardly read the ballots. No one says or
does anything about it."

' WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:






SLenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
SHymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by. calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITI." Monthly homeowners' association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent, range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
a 4 Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. /

Roadster lovers caught in the Crossfire


By Greg Hendriks
Chrysler broke new ground
When it introduced its Crossfire
sports coupe last year, and keeps
momentum for 2005 with signifi-
cant additions to the line.
Or maybe that should read "sig-
nificant reductions" as the most
immediately noticeable addition is
the removal of the top, to form the
Crossfire Roadster.
The roadster was planned from
the inception of the Crossfire pro-
gram, and was developed in tan-
dem with the coupe. As with the
coupe, the roadster is a product of
both sides of the DaimlerChrysler
combine, styled in the U.S. by
Chrysler, based on the first-genera-
tion Mercedes-Benz SLK and
assembled by Karmann in
Osnabrueck, Germany.
The SLK platform is eminently
suitable for drop-top use the
original SLK was the first modern
convertible with a folding metal
top, after all. The Crossfire Road-
ster's power folding cloth top fits
neatly into the space as the SLK's
. metal top disappeared into.
The Crossfire line has grown in
other ways, too. The regular mod-
els are now offered in two trim lev-
els, base and Limited.
Base models have a six-speed
manual transmission, cloth uphol-
stery and low-back bucket seats.
Limited's get standard leather and
high-back buckets, an available
five-speed automatic transmission
and more luxury features. All have
a moveable spoiler that deploys
above 60 mph, and both convert-
ible models feature a power-oper-
ated top that disappears complete-
ly beneath a stylish metal tonneau.
Also new in the Crossfire lineup
are the SRT-6 models coupe and
convertible. Like Chrysler's other
SRT cars, they are best thought of
as factory tuner cars.
Performance is the name of the
game, and while SRT-6s have a 3.2-
liter V6 like other Crossfires, it's
supercharged and makes 330
horsepower, somewhat more than
the regular engine's 215.
There are suspension upgrades
Sand both exterior and interior mod-


ifications as well. Think of SRT as
the Chrysler side of Daimler-
Chrysler's equivalent to Mercedes-
Benz's AMG.
But I'll leave a test of an SRT-6
for another day, as I want to focus
on Chyrsler's Limited model Cross-
fire Roadster with an automatic
transmission.
Top-down, the Roadster Limit-
ed is wonderful; top-up its snug
and pleasant.
The chassis rigidity was exem-
plary, contributing to quick, nimble
handling, and 215 automatic hors-
es were plenty for 'a fast-but-
relaxed touring pace on all kinds of
roads. Convertibles are important
in the segment in which the Cross-
fire competes, and the Crossfire
Roadster is one of the best in its
class.
Sometimes removing the top
from a car originally developed as a
coupe can produce ungainly
results, especially with the top up.
And sometimes the resulting con-
vertible not only retains its good
looks, but improves upon those of
its fixed-roof sibling. Such is the
case with the Crossfire Roadster,
and the Crossfire Coupe is a very
handsome car.
Top-up, the convertible top
blends well with the body shape,
and the top's small size visually
decreases the car's apparent size.
With the top down, this is even
more pronounced, and the car
looks even lower and smaller. And
the Crossfire Coupe is not exactly a
large car.
From the windshield forward,
the coupe and roadster are identi-
cal, with the new Chrysler eggcrate
grille and 30s Art Deco-inspired
styling details. The namesake
"cross-over" concave-to-convex
side styling is retained, and con-
tributes to the roadster's dynamic
wedge-shaped side view as do
the large 18-inch front and 19-inch
rear wheels. L
The rear is similar to the
coupe's, minus the boat-tail roof,
of course. It's rounded in a 1930s
fashion, with a small spoiler that
lifts above 60 mph integrated into
the trunk lid.
With the top down, the twin

SLK-style "sport bars" and fairings
in the metal tonneau are visible,
and add a classic touch.
The twin centrally-located rec-
tangular exhausts in a faux venturi
panel are totally contemporary.
Interestingly, with the top up, from
a three-quarter rear, slightly-elevat-
ed angle I find an interesting
resemblance to the late
Chrysler/Plymouth Prowler.
If the Crossfire Roadster looks
smaller than the coupe on the out-
side, it also feels smaller inside. It's
very comfortable, but cozy -
especially with the top up. The
design is basically the same as the
coupe's, a stylish and symmetrical
twin-cockpit look, meant to be
functional with either a left- or
right-hand driving position.
The instrument pod on the dri-
ver's side is balanced by a similarly-
shaped cutline on the passenger's
side. High-quality soft-touch mate-
rials are found on the dash, while
the console and center stack are
covered with bright silvery plastic.
The Limited's supportive
power-adjustable, leather-faced,
heated high-back sports seats are
appropriate to a car of the Cross-
fire's stature. Control placement is
good. A moderately-sized console
box and mesh door pockets com-
plement the locking glove box, but
pack light.
Trunk space depends on top


position, but golf clubs are out no
matter what. Sensors in the trunk
allow the top to be lowered only if
the trunk's internal divider panels
are correctly installed and nothing
will block the area into which the
top goes.
Top operation is simple and fast
- unlatch the large latch at the
front center of the top and manual-
ly push the top up a few inches.
Then hold down the switch and let
the servo motors do the rest of the
work.
Putting it back up is the oppo-
site hold the button down, and
when the motors stop, grab the
latch, pull the top down the last
few inches and latch it. With the
top down, there is enough room in
the trunk for a small duffle bag and
,a couple of briefcases. Sport tour-
ing is not the same as sport-utility
touring.
The Chrysler Crossfire's safety
equipment includes dual front and
side airbags, four-wheel antilock
disc brakes, all-speed traction con-
trol, electronic stability assistance,
latch child seat anchors and a pas-
senger airbag off switch.
Some convertibles in the Cross-
fire Roadster's class exhibit notice-
able cowl shake and chassis flex.
The Crossfire does not it feels

almost like it is machined from a
solid piece of metal. It's one of the
stiffest cars in its class, and that
benefits both ride quality and han-
dling.
You may notice cowl shake on a
very poorly-paved road, but at the
most it be very minimal. Even with
a firmly-tuned fully-independent
suspension featuring double A-
arms in front and a multilink sys-
tem in the rear and exceptionally
large, low-profile tires 225/40
ZR18 in front, 255/35 ZR19 at the
rear- the ride is not harsh at.all.
There is a tiny bit of body roll,
and the huge contact patch
ensures great grip. It's great fun at a
quick pace on a twisting road, but
is also comfortable on our high-
ways. As with the coupe, there is
no spare tire, only a can of sealant,
so watch for road debris.
The 3.2-liter single overhead


cam, 18-valve alloy V6 found under
the Crossfire's long, ribbed hood is
the familiar Mercedes-Benz power-
plant, but with different intake and
exhaust manifolds to enable it to

No complaints here, it's smooth
and powerful at nearly all engine
and road speeds. The '04 coupe
has the same standard six-speed
manual gearbox, while this year's
roadster has a five-speed automat-
ic. The performance reduction that
I expected because of the automat-
ic was not really noticeable, as the
engine's torque characteristics and
the transmission's adaptive shift
logic work together very well.
If you desire manual shifting,
simply select "AutoStick" mode
and shift, but that is rarely neces-
sary. Because of the Crossfire Lim-
ited's relaxed sport-touring nature,
the automatic is a fine choice for all

The Backyard Mechanic (


New transmission may .



be your only way out


By Ian McDougal

Question: The four speed auto-
matic transmission in my '84
Chevrolet half ton truck suddenly
stopped working at highway
speed. The engine will suddenly
rev up and the truck will slow
down if I try to accelerate hard or
drive over 50 mph (80 kph). After
coming to a stop the truck moves
again. The oil level was correct
and looked to be in good shape,
but I changed the filter and oil any-
way. The transmission pan had no
burnt material in it. Changing the
oil didn't help. Do I need a new
transmission or am I overlooking
something?
Answer: It would appear
another transmission is in order.
The transmission problem is likely
caused by a worn sprag clutch in
the center of the transmission. A
sprag clutch has an inner and
outer bearing surface separated
by several figure-8 shaped'metal
wedges or sprags. When the outer
bearing race turns one way, the
sprags wedge and lock the two
bearing surfaces together. This is
what drives the truck in forward
gears but a worn sprag clutch slips
and cannot hold the engine


torque.
Replacing the sprag clutch
would likely fix your problem but
deciding on a repair depends on
when your transmission was built.
This four-speed automatic was
first used in 1982 and continued
until mid-1984 as a first design. An
improved sprag clutch was intro-
duced in mid-1984 but it doesn't fit
in the earlier transmission. This
model is much more durable.
If you don't feel confident tak-
ing the transmission apart, repair-
ing it and resealing it, then replac-
ing it with a used one is relatively
simple. This transmission was
used for 1982 -1990 and was used
in most GM rear-wheel drive vehi-
cles. Some models require the
transmission tail housing to be
switched however. Truck trans-
missions up to and including 1987
are a direct bolt in. .
Question: My 1990 Ford Van
has a 5.0 liter V8 engine with
47,000 miles (75,000 km) on it. It
started to lose power and when I
checked the air filter it was soaked
with oil. The air cleaner also had
lots of oil in the bottom of it. I put a
new filter in and everything ran
fine for a while but now this filter
is also getting soaked. Why is


there oil getting into my air filter?
Answer: The oil is coming from
the crankcase ventilation system
vent pipe. This vent pipe runs
from the air cleaner to one of the
valve covers and lets clean air into
the engine crankcase. Your van's
engine has too much crankcase
pressure and is forcing oil back
out the vent.
Excessive crankcase pressure
can be caused by a faulty or incor-
rect PCV valve or collapsed hose
leading to the PCV valve. A blocked
valve or hose stops the flow of
crankcase gases into the intake
manifold. The valve is cheap so
replace it and inspect the hose.
Retarded ignition timing can
also cause the problem. Stepping
hard on the gas pedal to acceler-
ate a retarded engine causes more
pressure in the cylinders and
excessive leakage past the piston
rings. Crankcase pressure is then
higher than the PCV valve can
handle. Have the ignition timing
checked and reset if necessary.
Finally, excessive wear of the
piston rings, cylinder walls and
valve guides can allow pressures
to build in the crankcase. The only
cure for this is to overhaul the
engine. ,
