Bioterrorism

-.. .. Continued From Page 1
and Bill Casian, the health depart-
ment's bioterrorism prepared-
ness planner, for providing this
exercise. -
Jeff Goldberg of General
Physics then set up the scenario.
The health department had con-
tracted with General Physics to
S, provide the training.
The training scenario centered
around the discovery of a white
powder on the floor of a large
department store.
S- A terrorist group claimed that
S they had put weaponized
anthrax, a spore, into the store's
air conditioning system. The store
was evacuated. To complicate
matters, some store patrons were
suspected of shoplifting during
o the evacuation process.
Once everyone had been evac-
SOMI& uated, the mother of a small child
reported that her daughter was
SW missing.
Emergency response person-
.. -.. .. nel from the various agencies
involved discussed how their indi-
vidual agencies would respond to
the situation, and how they would
help Okeechobee get back to nor-
mal.
In light of the possible public
health crisis, it was the consensus


of law enforcement officials the
shoplifting situation was second-
ary and would be dealt with at a
later time.
They felt the most important
thing to do would be to isolate the
area and detain everyone who
had been in the store to prevent
possible spread of infection.
Fire officials had to seek advice
as to the safest way to get the little
girl out of the building. They had
to secure the area, isolate the peo-
ple who might possibly be con-
taminated and have a HAZMAT
team come in to collect samples
of the material that would then be
taken to a lab for analysis.
Because of the potential for
undue panic and spread of
rumors, getting correct informa-
tion to the media was considered
important.
Hospital officials noted that
under such a scenario, they
would have to request extra secu-
rity from law enforcement per-
sonnel.
In such a situation, there are
various organizations that the
health department would have to
notify.
It was discussed when to call
in federal officials and who would
call them.
Fire/Rescue Chief Nick Hop-
kins, who stood in for Emergency
Operations Director Gene O'Neill,


said the exercise created aware-
ness that all the agencies involved
have to work together.
Sheriff Paul May said that such
exercises keep law enforcement
agencies aware of what can hap-
pen. He added that there is always
the need for such training exercis-
es.
Mr. Casian planned the exer-
cise along with the help of the
emergency room staff of Rauler-
son Hospital He said he handed it
off to the facilitators of General
Physics, who polished it up and
presented it.
"I think they learned quite a
bit," Mr. Casian said of the partici-
pants in the exercise. He said they
came up some very good ques-
tions.
He said the facilitators were
very pleased with the outcome,
and felt that the county seems to
be fairly well prepared, compared
to some other counties, because
local personnel communicate
with each other. He said because
the county is so small, various
agencies have no trouble com-
municating.
Mr. Casian said that within 30
days there would be a "functional
exercise" with buildings, vehicles
and real simulated victims that
will further test the capabilities of
the participating agencies.

Rotary members learn of sea cadets program Law Enforcement Activity Log


By Bennett Yeilding
Special to the Okeechobee News
Rotarian Colin Cameron had as
his guest and speaker for the March
22, meeting M.W Muros, the liai-
son officer for the Navel Special
Warfare -Trident Team. This team
is administered locally by the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office and
is directly sponsored by the UDT -
SEAL Museum Association, the
UDT -SEAL Association and Navel
Special Warfare Foundation. This is
a unit of the US Navel Sea Cadet
Corps- USNSCC-.
This is an official activity with
the same requirements and bene-
fits as NJROTC and was estab-
lished by an act of congress on
request by the Secretary of the
Navy in 1957.The Okeechobee
"Trident" unit is one of the most
rigorous and challenging programs
for sea cadets in the nation. Mr.
Muros went on to say the NSW-Tri-
dent is performance based and
specifically emphasizes "real

world" practical skills and "hands-
on-training".
. The program may start out with
80-85 recruits and at the end of the
semester there may be 40 remain-
ing. The program operates in a
structured, military environment


and provides important benefits to
the cadets such as -discipline,
responsibility and an understand-
ing of the nature of civic responsi-
bility. The program is funded pri-
marily by grant money, with some
funds provided by the parents,


especially during the summer
camp training. For every 10 kids
who enter only about 6 make it
through, the primary reason being
physical fitness.
Mr. Muros is proud to say the
Okeechobee unit is the top pro-
gram in the U.S. and has been on
five previous occasions. The local
program puts between 8 and 10
kids into service 'each year. The
kids learn a trade and bring that
- back home after their service time
is up. The application process
starts with a call to Mr. Muros from
either the parent or the child. He
can be reached at (863) 357-1600.
And in other business;
Rotary is planning. for the
L.O.S.T. bicycle ride on Sat. April
23, at 8 a.m. Registration can be
made by contacting Jim Mclnnes
at Farm Bureau Insurance Co. 401

4 OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Saturday, April 2, 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@newszap.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Thankful
"This is in regard to the 'Not our Fault' call that was in the Speak
Out. I also live in a FEMA trailer in Taylor Creek Lodge and those
northern people, as you call them, do not think that they are better
than us. In fact most of them, if not all of them, are very understand-
ing about our situation. The only problem that the residents have is
the fact that most of us FEMA people drive the wrong way down a
one-way road. If the FEMA people would follow the park rules
maybe they wouldn't have problems with the northern people. You
need to remember these northern people were before us FEMA
people moved in. Therefore, if you want respect from them, then
maybe you should show some respect for their park. One more
thing, if it wasn't for the people here at Taylor Creek Lodge allowing
the FEMA travel trailers here so you could have a roof over you at
night, where would you all be? Unlike you, my family and I are very
thankful to those northern people having the heart to let FEMA put
trailers here. Thank you to all the residents of Taylor Creek Lodge for
all of you kindness and understanding."

Bless you Terri Schiavo
"God bless you Terri Schiavo, your death is in our prayers
always. God bless you. We hope you had a peaceful life."

Correction
"I would like to make a correction to the story about in the '40s
with the Lances. Alevene was Dosier Smith's daughter, her moth-,
er was a Walker and she was.,a Smith. Also, Bob was working for
Jess Durance out at Whidden's End on Dec. 7, 1941. And Jess
Durance, a historical figure himself, had the cows out at Whid-
den's End. Also, Ray Lance did not build the old wooden house,
the Church of the Brethren either. Morris Raulerson built-that and
should get credit for it. Morrison Ollie Raulerson lived there."

Foster Homes
"If foster homes are hard to find in Okeechobee why not,
under reasonable circumstances, leave the child with its parents
and just monitor the situation?"

Relief Efforts
"I wonder how much money is going to fund over there where
they had that great big earthquake and tidal wave. Everybody has
collected money for them and how much are they really going to
get? They are not going to get all of it; it's all going to go into some-
one else hands before it gets to theirs."

Loud People
"Have yoiu ever noticed in the restaurants the loud obnoxious
people that drink and sit there and take up the seats, where no
one else can have a seat in these restaurants? They don't leave a
tip, and that's everybody."

Terri Schiavo
"I reckon that those do-gooders up at the House-are satisfied,
the lady passed away. They starved her to death. In other words,
our government does some of the stupidest things. They let her
starve to death."

Steroids
"If there are steroids in baseball, you can bet there are steroids
in football. And probably everyone in professional wrestling is on
it. You know they are in football so it is not just baseball. This thing
is wide spread."

Speed Limits
"What is happening? Berman Road is not populated very
much and is actually a.nice road narrow but nice. But 15-A is
bumpy as all get out, populated well and narrow. Go figure that
the speed limit is th6 same. Who makes these decisions at the
county commissioners meetings? It should be looked into." (Edi-
tor's Note: Thanks for calling. In regard to the roads to which you
refer, the speed limits are set by the county.)

Pope
"I pray fervently that the Pope will not die. I pray that modern
science will be leveraged to its fullest extent to keep him alive for
at least another 15 years. If there is a God, certainly he would
allow this to happen as a sign to us all? Not only that, but it would
really be fitting a real sign of divine justice."



Crime Prevention Tip
Beware of contractors or handymen who come to your door
unsolicited.

Last weekend was very suc-
cessful for young anglers. Thirty-
three fishermen competed in a
youth bass tournament at Okee-
Tantie Marina and came to the
scales with some beautiful fish.
Congratulations to Dusty Hall
who finished in first place in the
11-14 year-old division with 8.54
lbs.; John Talbot who finished in
second place in the same division
with 7.07 lbs.; Calvin King who
placed in the 15-18 year-old divi-
sion; and, to Kyle Schoonmaker
who placed second in the 15-18
year-old division with 3.31 lbs.
This weekend will be a busy
one for anglers and spectators
alike. Waterfest is taking place at
the Okee-Tantie Campground
and Marina on Saturday and Sun-
day. The Christian Team Trail will
host their monthly tournament on
Saturday. They will leave the
Okee-Tantie Marina at safe light
and return for weigh-in at 1 p.m.
The Okeechobee Contractors
Association bass tournament will
take to the water shortly after the
Christian Team Trail and will
return at 3 p.m. for weigh-in at


Okee-Tantie.
If you plan on fishing Saturday
morning, keep this in mind. It will
be extremely busy at the Okee-
Tantie ramps before dawn and
from 1 until about 4 p.m.
Fishing is great right now.
Specks are being caught in the
Kissimmee River, along the banks
and at Harney Pond. Bluegills and
shellcrackers are also being
pulled in along the river bank
using worms and crickets.
Anglers are catching 8- and 9-
pound bass on wild shiners at
Harney Pond, Tin House, Cody's
Cove and King's Bar. Spinner-
baits, Horny Toads and topwater
lures are also catching fish in
these areas.
The Jargemouths are also
being hooked in the Rim Canal
flippin' 3-inch shadow/blue glitter
Crickets into green cattails. They
are also being caught along deep-
water drops on Carolina rigs
using 10-inch shadow/blue glitter
plastic worms.
Bass tournaments to look for
in April are the Headturners3.com

Mart BFL tournament on April 16.
Have a good weekend and
keep fishing.

Church of the Nazarene.


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Rev. Gene Rodenberry,
Chaplain at Okeechobee Health
Care and Rehabilitation Center

Revelation 3:7-13
Two of the seven churches in
the Book of Revelation, Smyrna
and Philadelphia, do not need to
be told to repent. To the other
five it is necessary for the Lord to
say, "Repent or else!" The
Philadelphia church is the one
that knows the favor of the Lord,
the one the Lord is uniquely
blessing. The church that is like
it today is the same.
As in all the letters, the church
is challenged to turn their eyes
upon Jesus. This letter points out
three things about Jesus.
Verse 7 describes Jesus as
"He that is holy, he that is true."
These are divine qualities that
describe his character. Thus, we

Religion Brief

Leader raises
political issues
The leader of Roman Catholics
in England and Wales rejected
what he called the "specter" of an
American-style mixing of religion
and politics on an Easter Sunday
TV program.
Cardinal Cormac Murphy-
O'Connor said in an interview
with GMTV that it's "perfectly
legitimate" for church leaders to
raise political issues, but he
wouldn't tell Catholics which
party to support.
With a national election
approaching, probably in May,
Murphy-O'Connor was accused
of interfering in politics when he
praised opposition Conservative
Party leader Michael Howard for
saying he favored reducing the
legal limit on abortions from 24
weeks to 20.
The cardinal said it's "perfectly
legitimate" for religious leaders to
raise issues like abortion. But "I
certainly was not saying that
Catholics should vote for any one
particular party," he said.
"Now the specter has been
raised that we're going to have an
American style. No, I want a
British style. We do things differ-
ently here."
Prime Minister Tony Blair
made a similar statement last
month. "I do not want to end up
with an American style of politics,
with us all going out there beating
our chest about our faith," he
said. Blair said it's "a bit
unhealthy" to use religion in. the
political process.

are not to think of Jesus irrever-
ently but as holy and true, the liv-
ing Christ!
Jesus' position is expressed in
the sentence, "He that hath the
key of David." This expression
refers to the covenant that God
gave through David ahd fulfilled
in Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ is the King of
Kings, and he has absolute
authority. He holds the keys to all
of the doors in heaven and earth
(see Matt. 28:18-19, Eph. 1:19).
He gives us the keys of the king-
dom (Matt. 16:19) His authority
is sovereign, final, and absolute!
Let us never forget to whom we
belong and whom we serve.
The words "he that openeth
and no man shutteth, and shut-
teth and no man openeth,"
describe Jesus' administrative
activity. He opens and closes
doors. In the light of Jesus'


administration, there is faith,
hope, victory, and praise.
The church that Jesus blesses
is the church that is not depend-
ent on size. The church at
Philadelphia had a "little
strength" (v. 8).
The church that Jesus blesses
is a church that is already mov-
ing. "I know thy works."
The church that Jesus blesses
is a church that is obedient. The
commands of the church are
vitally important to His church
(Matt. 28:18-20, John 13:35,
John 14:21, 1 John 3:23).
The church that Jesus blesses
is a church that stands true to
Christ. The name of Jesus Christ
was not denied (v. 8).
The church that Jesus blesses
is a church that is faithful to what
it has. Verse 11 says, "Hold that
fast which thou hast." The Lord
blesses the church that is faithful


to its opportunities.
The blessing that Jesus
bestows...an open door. Thus,
the door is an open door of evan-
gelism, victory, and spiritual con-
quest. Moreover, this is the door
we are to enter today as Christ's
church. We are to occupy for
Christ every territory of the
opposition. We are to appropri-
ate his victory and live Christ-
enthroned lives.
The blessing that Jesus
bestows...future deliverance (v.
10). "I will keep thee from the
hour of temptation."
The blessing that Jesus
bestows...eternal rewards (v.
12). Jesus promises eternal posi-
tion, identification, citizenship in
God's city and exaltation with
Christ.
The Lord still gives conquest
to his church today in opening
doors of victory.

The Okeechobee News, Saturday, April 2, 2005 *


Disaster
ORLANDO Federal and
state disaster assistance agencies
are gaining ground with recovery
efforts in the Sunshine State six
months after Hurricane Jeanne -
the last of the 2004 hurricanes -
made landfall Sept. 25,2004.
The unprecedented four hurri-
canes striking Florida within one
hurricane season resulted in all 67
Florida counties being declared
disaster areas by President Bush'.
The overall impact was wide-
spread and costly; all four hurri-
canes Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne have been added to the
U.S. Department of Homeland
Security Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency's (FEMA) Top 10
Natural Disasters list. Nationwide,
17 states and territories were
affected by one or more of the
storms.


aid tops
To date, federal aid to Florida
as a result of the four 2004 hurri-
canes has surpassed $4.7 billion,
with more than 1.24 million vic-
tims applying for federal and state
assistance. So far, Floridians have
received $1.163 billion in individ-
ual disaster aid including housing,
personal property and other
expenses, crisis counseling and
legal services.
Coming to the immediate aid
of hurricane victims, FEMA pro-
vided nearly $1.17 billion for
emergency response such. as dis-
persing ice, Water, ready-to-eat
meals and disaster medical assis-
tance.
The U.S. Small Business
Administration (SBA) has
approved $1.563 billion for
almost 50,500 applicants to repair
their damaged homes and busi-


$4.7 billion 6 months after Jeanne


nesses with low-interest loans.
FEMA has obligated $818 mil-
lion in public assistance funds to
help local governments and cer-
tain private, nonprofit entities
repair and rebuild infrastructure
and buildings, and clear more
than 53 million cubic yards of
debris.
FEMA contract inspectors
examined and completed nearly
881,000 housing inspections. Rec-
ognizing a shortage of safe, avail-
able housing, FEMA, in conjunc-
tion with the State Emergency
Response Team (SERT), also
brought in more than 15,750
manufactured units to house dis-
placed residents.
Applicants with questions
about disaster programs or their
own claims can call FEMA at (1)
(800) 621- FEMA (3362). The


hearing- or speech-impaired
should call TIY (1) (800)462-7585.
Both numbers operate Monday
through Saturday from 8 a.m.
until 6 p.m., EST.
Six months after Hurricane
Jeanne
According to insurance
experts, Hurricane Jeanne is the
sixth costliest hurricane in U.S.
history. Making landfall directly
where Hurricane Frances did, the
Category 3 storm impacted the
state with hurricane and tropical
force winds that covered much of
the Florida peninsula.
A breakdown of the amounts
and types of disaster assistance
provided to Floridians because of
Hurricane Jeanne is as fol-
lows:
More than 363,300 individu-
als registered for state and federal


assistance;
Nearly $391.8 million
approved in federal and state dis-
aster assistance grants. Of that
amount, $195.9 million paid for
lodging expenses, rental assis-
tance and minimal home .repairs.
Another $195.9 million covered
other needs,.including such items
as repair or replacement of per-
sonal property, funeral expenses,
and medical and dental costs
related to the storm;
e The SBA has approved more
than $257.5 million in low-interest
loans for 11,000 applicants;
More than $1.3 million dis-
bursed in Disaster Unemploy-
ment Assistance;
To date, $104.7 million in-
public assistance funds has been
obligated for 792 requests for aid
from local governments and pri-


vate, nonprofit entities;
More than 264,000 housing
inspections have been completed
for this disaster;
More than 225,800 tarps
were distributed to individuals,
and volunteers and the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers covered near-
ly 53,600 roofs with plastic sheet-
ing (figures combine Frances and
Jeanne stats);
To date, 6,096 National
Flood Insurance Program claims
have been received; '
More than $301 million paid
for emergency response and pro-
tective measures;
162 shelters were set up to
accommodate 46,252 individuals;
Volunteers distributed more
than 2.69 million meals;
Disaster Medical Assistance
Teams treated 961 patients.

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:






Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
S Hymer 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 "PIT." Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
e Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
< Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. ,
