Inside
Freezing rain
closes highways
Freezing rain and sleet
spread sheets of ice across
parts of the Southeast on Sat-
urday, shutting down sections
of every interstate highway in
the metro Atlanta area and
canceling hundreds of airline
flights.
Two traffic deaths
appeared to be linked to the
slippery pavement, said
Trooper First Class Larry
Schnall of the Georgia State
Patrol.
Ice was a quarter-inch
thick on downtown Atlanta
streets as a storm system
spread snow, freezing rain
and sleet from the Midwest
into Georgia and the Caroli-
nas. South Carolina police
warned of ice forming on
bridges and North Carolina's
Highway Patrol reported
numerous accidents.

Serena Williams
overcomes injury
Serena Williams was los-
ing and in pain, wincing on
almost every swing. Her shots
lacked their usual zing. Her
hopes for a seventh Grand
Slam appeared doomed.
Then, with a little help
from the trainer, the woman
who calls herself the toughest
fighter in tennis started getting
her power back. And it was
top-ranked Lindsay Davenport
who was in trouble.

Tanti Quilters: Homemade quilts on display

BOCC meets


with planners


at workshop


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In their ongoing effort to fos-
ter better communications and
working relationships with the
various county boards, Okee-
chobee County Commissioners
held a joint workshop with the
Planning Board/Board of
Adjustments and Appeals on
Thursday evening.
A number of topics were
discussed informally but since
it was a workshop, no formal
actions could be taken:
One of the topics discussed
was the use of a developer's
agreement and how this could
help ensure new subdivisions
are built according to county


standards.
County Attorney John Cas-
sels suggested that a develop-
er's agreement be in place
before a requested change in
zoning is granted, and that a
developer's agreement could
be required when a develop-
ment reaches a certain number
of units.
It was suggested that at
some point the county might
want to impliment a require-
ment for Planned Unit Develop-
ment (PUD) with develop-
ments of a certain size. By
approving a large tract of land
as a PUD, developer's may vary
the units per acre within that

these subdivisions, the county's
position has been to refuse to


grant a building permit if there is
no road.
The owners can either pave.
the road themselves or request a
special assessment.
Planning Board Member Joey
Hoover suggested using a con-
sultant to look at these old plats.
Mr. Cassels replied that .once
the consultant is gone, the county
would have to deal with the prop-
erty owners.
County Commissioner Gene
Woods noted a need to tighten
down on landscaping require-
ments.

Mr. Royce noted that signs and
landscaping define a community.
He added that those are the first
things a visitor sees and can cre-
ate a positive impression.
Other topics mentioned for
possible discussions and prioriti-
zation included foundation
requirements for single-family
residences; dumpsters in residen-
tial zoning districts; land applica-
tion of residuals; zoning districts;
mining regulations; and, adminis-
trative rezoning.
"This will be the critical year in
Okeechobee's history," Mr. Royce
noted because of all the expected
new developments.
Mr. Hoover said that there are a
tremendous number of issues to
be discussed.
Because of those facts, it was
suggested that the two boards
hold joint workshops more fre-
quently.

The Okeechobee News, Sunday, January 30, 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.

ATVs
"I have heard rumors of an ATV accident on the,Prairie
which resulted in the use of the Trauma Hawk. The word
around town here in West Palm Beach is a ban on riding unless
you own property in the area. I was just wondering if this has
any truth to it? If it does not, I apologize for the inconvenience. I
am an avid ATV and dirt bike rider, and all I like to do is find new
areas and trails to ride. My friends and I like to ride and relax on
the Prairie on the weekends, but we are thinking we are loosing
another riding area. It is getting to the point that unless you own
land you have no place to ride, unless you want to go to a
motocross style track." (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. ATVs
or dirt bikes can be ridden on private property, but only with
the property owner's permission. Without that permission you
are trespassing.)

Medical Treatment
"My father is in the county jail and has been having a prob-
lem with ring worm for the last four weeks. He has been putting
in request after request to talk to the nurse. He finally got in last
Tuesday and they told him it was definitely ring worm and he
needed to get $10 in his account in order to get the cream that is
required to make the ring worm go away. So, I put the $10 in his
account. I want something to be done. They won't do anything
when there is something is wrong with one of their inmates."
(Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. We spoke with the adminis-
trator at the county jail and were told that inmates there are
provided appropriate medical treatment. The inmate in ques-
tion has had an opportunity to be seen by medical staff and is
being treated accordingly. Florida statutes allow for the charg-
ing of inmates for medical treatments.)

True Christian
"I am a true Christian and I support President Bush. And the
statement that a true Christian wouldn't support Bush because
he broke two of the commandments gave me a good laugh. I
suppose you believe that Kerry hasn't broken any command-
ments either. Keep on throwing stones wildly and it won't be
long before you get hit by one."

Appalled
"I am appalled. I am a single parent of a young boy and I
went down to try and get child support for my young son's
mother, and I had to watch a tape and everything on the tape
was deadbeat fathers, deadbeat fathers. There are a lot of dead-
beat mothers out there. There are a lot of good fathers out
there, like me. I can't understand why I had to watch a film that
repeatedly said deadbeat dads, deadbeat dads."

Looking Back ...
This culvert was built under the levee in 1935. These culverts carry water draining from the surrounding country through
the levee to Lake Okeechobee. The pipes are 10-inches in diameter and have automatic gates. Do you have any old pho-
tos of the Okeechobee area or of Okeechobee citizens to share with our readers? Bring them by the Okeechobee News

Letter to the Editor


Planning benefits
the entire family
Throughout southwest Florida
and around the country, more
and more families are beginning
to talk about the importance of
end-of-life care and the need to
plan for it. Pastors, counselors,
lawyers, physicians and others all
report that these conversations
can prove to be crucial to the well
being of the entire family.
Not too far from us, in Pinellas
County, is a situation that has
become the national symbol of
this issue. The highly publicized
Terri Schiavo case has resulted in
years of legal battles among fami-
ly members.


The patient's husband,
Michael, has maintained that the
feeding tube sustaining his wife
should be removed so that she
can be allowed to die after years
in a persistent vegetative state fol-
lowing a heart attack.
Meanwhile, Terri's parents
continue to hold hope that she
will recover.
Michael claims that Terri
would not want to be kept alive in
this circumstance, although there
is no confirming documentation.
It has become a battleground
that involves the courts and the
Legislature. No matter what your
position is on this, you must ask
yourself: would you want the
courts deciding your fate, or the
fate of someone you love?

Crime Prevention Tip

Beware of someone selling health care plans to elder and sen-
ior citizens, they may be a fraud.


At Hope Hospice, we often
encounter the beginnings of these
situations. Our role is not to make
decisions for patients or families,
nor sit in judgment of their choic-
es. Our desire is to inform and
encourage everyone to take time
to think seriously about his or her
values, choices and goals regard-
ing the end of life. It's not difficult.
It begins by having conversations
with people you care about.
"Advance Directives" are sim-
ple forms legal documents -
that are a record of your choices
and goals and instructions for
your future medical care in the
event you become unable to
speak for yourself.
Advance Directives may have
several components:


A health care power of attor-
ney or surrogate that allows you
to name a person you trust to
make your health care decisions if
you cannot make them yourself.
A living will a statement
about your desires to have or not
to have your life prolonged by
extraordinary measures if you
have a terminal or incurable ill-
ness or if you are in a vegetative
state.
. A declaration of an anatomi-
cal gift, allowing you to make a
gift by will, organ donor card or
other document.

Florida on rebound


SARASOTA (AP) On the
heels of its worst hurricane sea-
son in modern history, Florida is
on a quick economic rebound,
Tom Gallagher, the state's chief
financial officer, said Friday.
Gallagher told business lead-
ers that with a strong economy,
Florida can overcome future
crises like a repeat of the 2004
hurricane season.
The state took a more than
$20 billion dollar economic hit
from hurricanes Charley,
Frances, Ivan, and Jeanne, Gal-
lagher said. He said that loss was
being made up in federal dol-
lars, along with money being
spent by residents rebuilding
their damaged homes.
"All of that, especially the
rebuilding, will be a boom for
Florida and really help our econ-
omy," he said as part of a forum
hosted by the Sarasota County
Economic Development Corpo-
ration.
The past hurricane season is
still negative having an effect on
Florida's top industry, which
stands to lose $2.7 billion tourist
dollars in the coming months,
said James McManemon Jr.,
general manager of Ritz-Carlton
Sarasota.
While cancellations during
the hurricane season were often
replaced by fleeing residents
looking for temporary shelter,


many tourists will be shying
away from the state this sum-
mer, wary of a repeat hurricane
season, he said.
McManemon said the indus-
try hoped to lure tourists back
with a big marketing push.
Michael Saunders, president
of real estate brokerage Michael
Saunders & Company, said
tougher building codes put in
place after Hurricane Andrew
slammed South Florida in 1992
passed the test during the sum-
mer of storms, and real estate in
Florida is still booming.
Residents are not only build-
ing new homes, current home-
owners are upgrading to add
shutters and taking other pre-
cautionary measures and con-
dominium owners are adding
so-called safe rooms, so they
won't have to evacuate.
"I've never seen a stronger
real estate market," she said.
Gallagher said the 2004 hurri-
cane season was a learning
experience for Florida.
He said eliminating the multi-
ple-deductible for people hit by
two or more storms the same
season was an important step
taken by the Legislature during
the recent special session.
Lawmakers should continue
to look at insurance reform, he
said.

Double-digit growth for Florida Ag in the Classroom in 2004


Gainesville Introducing inno-
vative programs and tapping grass-
roots networks helped Florida Agri-
culture in the Classroom, Inc.
increase the number of teachers
and students reached last year.
Florida Ag in the Classroom grew
by 71 percent the number of teach-
ers reached, and by 26 percent the
number of students affected in
2004.
"When we called on our dedi-
cated industry volunteers, they
came through in a big way," said
Scott Emerson, chairman of Florida
Ag in the Classroom. "They under-
stand the importance of the pro-
gram and are eager to help educate
and expose teachers and students
to Florida agriculture. We appreci-
ate very much all they do for us."
Florida Ag in the Classroom's
mission: Expand youth awareness
and understanding of Florida agri-
culture and natural resources by
integrating agricultural concepts
into core educational disciplines
and Florida Ag in the Classroom's
supporting programs.
It's top priorities: To develop,
promote and disseminate current
curricula, materials and programs
to increase agricultural literacy
among educators and youth; to
cultivate and maintain partnerships
between Florida Ag in the Class-
room and Florida's. agricultural
community, educators and the
National Ag in the Classroom pro-
gram; to build financial strength for
Florida Ag in the Classroom pro-
grams; and to be accountable for
the educational and financial effica-
cy of Florida Ag in the Classroom
programs.
Gainesville-based Florida Ag in
the Classroom is funded by the
agriculture specialty tag the Ag Tag
- and takes seriously its responsibili-
ty to educate students and teachers

who are unfamiliar with agricul-
ture. It offers curricula and materi-
als that help teachers incorporate
agricultural concepts in their lan-
guage arts, math, science and
social studies classes in kinder-
garten through 12th grade.
To support teachers and grass-
roots efforts, Florida Ag in the Class-
room introduced three new pro-
grams and e-ents: AgriSmarts, Ag
Learning Barns and Agriculture Lit-
eracy Day. These programs helped
raise awareness of Florida agricul-
ture to more than 5,800 teachers
and more than 229,000 students in
2004, up from 3,391 teachers and
181,758 students in 2003.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson congratu-
lated Florida Ag in the Classroom
for its successful industry partner-
ships and its growing number of
student and teacher constituents.
"Reaching Florida's students
and teachers with the message of
the importance of agriculture is a
key part of preserving Florida's
farming heritage," Commissioner
Bronson said. "It's clear Florida Ag
in the Classroom is working hard to
reach out to as many students and
teachers as possible with the help
of its partners, and we wish them
continued success as they try to
reach out to even more."'
To continue to grow the num-
ber of students and teachers it
reaches in 2005, Florida Ag in the
Classroom is redesigning and relo-
cating its web site to make ordering
materials and participating in work-
shops and other programs easier.
In addition, it is improving its exist-
ing programs and introducing new
ones with the help of its board of
directors of industry representa-
tives and its new Educator and Vol-
unteer advisory panels.

improve on what we're doing is to
ask the advice of the teachers and
industry volunteers who are using
our materials and programs,"
Emerson said.
As part of its grassroots net-
work, Florida Ag in the Classroom
has partnered with students who
are already familiar with Florida
agriculture FFA members. To
help spread the word about the
importance of Florida agriculture,
Florida Ag in the Classroom and
Florida FFA developed AgriSmarts,
an educational program used by
FFA chapters to teach school chil-
dren and civic organizations about
Florida Ag in the Classroom and
Florida agriculture.
Florida Ag in the Classroom has
spent $13,000 on AgriSmarts since
its inception in 2002. It reached 15
schools and nearly 1,200 students
during the 2003-04 school year,
Florida Ag in the Classroom esti-
mates. It's being offered again this
schoolyear.
In addition, Florida Ag in the
Classroom has awarded agri-
science teachers $20,000 in grant
money for outreach programs
since the 2001-02 school year, and
$100,000 for the initial funding of
the Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services' Agri-
Science Leadership Program.
Another new program, Ag
Learning Barn, has taken off since
its inception in mid 2003. Thirty-five
counties have signed up for barns,
about half of which have built their
barns and are moving them to
schools. Two more counties are
waiting for approval.
Ag Learning Barns are mobile
units built to look like red barns and
outfitted with shelves that hold
books, videos, games and toys that
teachers can borrow to teach their
students the importance of agricul-

ture. Florida Ag in the Classroom
reimburses each county represen-
tative's organization up to $1,000 to
build and stock the barn, and offers
$350 after the first school year to
restock it.
County Farm Bureau members,
University of Florida/IFAS extension
agents, Florida Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
representatives and industry asso-
ciation representatives have taken
the lead on building Ag Learning
Barns in their counties. In addition
to building and stocking the barns,
these industry partners move the
barns to five schools during the
school year.
These industry partners, togeth-


er with FFA students and teachers,
are the key participants involved in
another new Florida Ag in the
Classroom initiative, Agriculture Lit-
eracy Day.
Florida's first Ag Literacy Day
held March 16, 2004 generated
interest from 282 industry volun-
teers, more than Florida Ag in the
Classroom expected. It's set for
March 17, this year.
In honor of that day, industry
volunteers read a designated book
about agriculture and distribute
book marks listing Florida farmers'
contributions to the state's econo-
my and environment to elementary
school students around the state.
Industry participants visited


more than 2,000 classrooms and
41,000 students in honor of Ag Lit-
eracy Day in 2004. Florida Ag in the
Classroom spent about $10,000 on
the event, much of it on buying the
books that were donated to school
libraries.
Florida Ag in the Classroom
reached even more teachers and
students through other special
efforts.
"We are proud of the strong
growth we experienced in 2004,
and we will work hard to do the
same in 2005, "Emerson said.

As I prepare for my annual trek
to the PGA Merchandise Show in
Orlando, I began to think about the
thousands of new products I'll see.
How each one will add length to
your drive. Or, perhaps allow you to
finally lose that slice. And, sink
more putts. All that remains to be.
seen. I do promise to fill you in on
all that during the next several
weeks. However, before I do, I
thought I'd leave you with another
installment of lessons from the
LPGA T&CP Membership. This
kind of information I am certain
will help your game!
The LPGA T&CP Membership
founded in 1959, has enjoyed an
unprecedented rate of growth in
recent years and boasts the largest
membership of women golf pro-
fessionals in the world.
The following tip is courtesy of
Deb Vangellow, Sweetwater Coun-
try Club in Houston, Texas:
Left is right!
How you line up a golf shot.
pretty much determines where it
will go. Aim and alignment are fac-
tors you can control before you
swing. Because we rarely hit it
"pure" every time, a good pre-shot
routine that gets you properly
aligned to the target may help you
have "superior miss-hits."
Begin your pre-shot routine
from behind the ball. This is the
only way that you can clearly estab-
lish the target line using both eyes
(binocular vision). Once your brain
has the intended message about
alignment, you can begin your
approach to the golf ball with confi-
dence because this information is
now stored in short-term memory.
From this point, the procedure
is straightforward and can become
automatic with repetition. First,
place your hands on the handle,
keeping the clubface square. Then,
aim the square clubface to the tar-
get on the line you established from
behind the ball. Next, align your
body (checking feet, thighs, hips
and shoulders) parallel and left of
the target line, addressing the golf
ball. Last, with confidence, trust
your aim and alignment and make
your best effort to create the shot.
Even if you do not hit it perfectly, it
will likely be on line, heading
towards the intended target a
great miss at the very least!
With experience and repetition,
this pre-shot routine will become
automatic. So remember, left is in
fact right! Take time to work on a
quality pre-shot routine because if
