Kindergarten registration: Children to start school

Mother and daughter sport identical smiles at Friday morning's kindergarten registra-
tion at Central Elementary School. Zoe Wood, 4, appears ready to start class as her
mother Amie Wood fills out enrollment paperwork.


Class size


amendment


facing change


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
"The classroom size amend-
ment will be a problem for the
state and for Okeechobee," said
Okeechobee County Assistant
Superintendent of Schools Lee
Dixon.
Governor Jeb Bush, who has
opposed the amendment, is
pushing to change the amend-
ment to use district wide aver-
ages rather than individual class-
room average numbers.
Voters adopted the amend-
ment in 2'.ir I-'. Its goal is to have
18 students in each class in
kindergarten through the third
grade, 22 students per class in
the fourth through eighth grades


tI %I r.


and a 25 to 1 student/teacher
ratio in high school.
The requirements are being
phased in. Right now school dis-
tricts must reduce their average
class size by two students each
year. In 2006, the standard will
change to a school average and
two years later the requirement
will cover each classroom indi-
vidually.
Earlier this year the governor
proposed an alternative of using
the district average and prom-
ised a minimum salary of
$35,000 for teachers.
Senate President Tom Lee
said he is against having rules
about class size in the constitu-

Motes has seen


Belle Glade change


By MaiyAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
BELLE GLADE Jesse Motes
and his twin brother David, are
the first recorded set of twins
born in Belle Glade. On May 28,
1922, the twin boys were born in
a house that back then stood at
South Main Street and Avenue F.
Jesse still lives in Belle Glade
and Lake Placid, spending his
time between these two cities.
His twin brother divides his time
between Lake Placid and North
Carolina.
Their cousin, Ed Motes, is part
of this story too. He still lives in
Belle .Glade has been kind
enough to share his photographs.
Jesse recalls the old days:
"My parents were raised in
Alabama. My uncle, Lee Motes
was in the First World War. After it
was over, he came down to Belle

Glade in 1918. Then I guess he
went back to Alabama after
awhile and told his family about
it. My uncle, W. D. Motes came
down in 1919. Then my parents
and older brother Louis, came
down in 1921. My twin brother
and I were born in Belle Glade in
1922.

there weren't any roads. He came
by barge up the canal from Fort .
Lauderdale and landed at Kreamer .. r .
and Torry Islands in the south part : .
of the lake. '. ,


"All travel was by boat at first.
There weren't any roads at all at
that time, only local muck roads in
town. There were rough bridges
for horses and wagons and farm
equipment. You'd have to take
your car by barge across water. You
would drive your car up on to the
barge and there were mules
hitched to ropes on either bank
with a pulley. They'd pull your car
over on the barge, then they'd pull
the barge back.
S^ S "I think Pahokee developed
sooner than Belle Glade. There
was a politician called B. Elliot and
I think he had something to do
with that.
"My father earned a living trap-
ping and farming in Florida. Back
then, nothing was drained and the
only farming was close in to town,
you see, not way out like now.
That's why trapping was so good.
The sawgrass was full of game.
There was a good market for rac-
coon pelts. When the price was
good we could get $3 to $4 apiece
for them. We used to get bobcats
too. There were a lot of them back
then.
"When you were out in the
Glades on foot trapping, in the dry
weather, you had to watch for the
S* big cracks. The black dirt would
dry up and shrink and make cracks
big enough that you could go
almost up to your knee inside the
crack if you weren't careful.
"I remember we went back and
forth from Florida to Alabama a lot.
It meant going to school here and
there as we could. 'Course, there
weren't any report cards early on,
so we'd come to a new school and
aggODg they'd ask, 'What grade are you
boys in?' and we'd say, (sometimes
we hadn't gone quite the whole
year before) but we'd say a grade
and they'd say 'Okay, we'll try you
there,' and neither of us got put

"This was our hunting buggy we used in the 1930s, to go
hunting and trapping around Belle Glade. It had double
wheels so it would go in the swamp," explained Jesse Motes.


back, so I guess it was all right.
Pahokee had the only high school.
"When we drove back and
forth between Alabama and, Flori-
da, it was in a Model T touring car.
It was open, not closed in. When it
broke down, which it did, my dad
would just pull off at a shady spot
and fix it. He could always get parts
at a junk yard for it. We'd spend
nights on the road at Tourist
Camps. They didn't have motels. I
remember they cost about $2 a
night for the family and my dad
would always bargain with the
man for a better price.
"We weren't here in 1928 when
the hurricane came. We had gone
back to Alabama. My uncle W. D.
Motes was here in Belle Glade,
though. They'd just built a big new
house. It sat up high on wood pil-
ings and when the Water came up,
they piled up the furniture and
went up into the attic. The house
was lifted up off its pilings by the
water and it floated! The water
came up about five feet inside and
they were in the attic so they were
safe. They had two families in there
and as they saw people float by,
they'd grab hold of them and pull
them in too. My cousin remembers
all this. He would have been about
four years old at the time.
"During the depression, it was
real hard. My dad would farm in
Alabama part of the year. We had


family in Winfield and Guin in the
northwest part of the state. Then
we'd come back to Belle Glade. I
remember we drove down Peav-
ine Trail coming down from Orlan-
do.
"When we were in Florida, we
kids played under the custard
apple tree under the Moonvines.
That way you were out of the sun.
We had a good time. There wasn't
any drainage, so we could just dig
down in the soil about six inches
and have water to play with. It
would fill right up.
"Back then there was a steel
bridge at six mile bend, where the
Palm Beach Canal branches south-
east down to Brown's Farm. The
bridge attendant, when boats
would come they'd blow their
horn, well he'd let us help. We'd
put up the chains across the road
to stop traffic, then we'd have two
kids on each end and we'd turn the
winch for the bridge tender. Then
he'd give each of us a bottle of
Coke as a reward. We were only
four or five years old. That was a
big treat!
At Okeelanta there was a gener-
al store where the mail would
come by boat from Fort Laud-
erdale. There was a good bit of traf-
fic between the hauling and the
dredge boats. There was a real old
school house behind the store.
One season our dad took us out to

1922, they were the first set of twins ever recorded being
born in Belle Glade.

Motes brothers traveled with their family between Florida and


Alabama.
see the ruins of it. I don't know if it
had burned down or if one of the
hurricanes had got it.
"We moved up to South Bay
one time, near where the city hall
was. My dad set up our tent across
the road from the school. Then I
remember, there was a hotel near
the Atlantic Sugar Mill half way
between six mile and 20 mile
bend on the south side. It was
called the Gladeview Hotel. We
lived in that hotel for a short
while.
"During the 1930s we had a
hunting buggy. Our hunting
buggy was an old truck fitted with
double tires for the swamp and
when it got really wet we'd put


chains around the wheels. You'd
still get stuck though, and there
was no one anywhere to help you
out. So you'd carry two long poles
with you and two long thick
ropes. When you got stuck, you'd
go behind the buggy and set the
poles down in the mud and tie the
ropes to the axle, in between the
two back tires, then run the ropes
to the poles you had stuck in the
ground. When you put the buggy
in reverse, it would wrap the rope
around the axle and pull the
buggy back out of the deep mud.
"Then I grew up and raised a
family here. I built one house and
later built my present house. Belle
Glade is and was a great town!"

tion and thought the governor's
proposal was the best solution to
date.


Local teacher's union president
Candy Walker said the teacher's
union feels that the governor's plan
has "a lot of flaws:" One problem
she. pointed out is that teacher rais-
es are not tied to a change in the
amendment.
"It's all political," she said stat-
ing for six years the governor "had
not done one whit for teachers."
Mr. Dixon said implementing
the current classroom size a mend-
ment will get to be very expensive
in a few years and he encourages
attempts to do something before
that time.
"People have not seen the ulti-


mate budget impact yet," the assis-
tant superintendent stated.
He said the district average is
the best option on the table so far,
even though he has reservations
about other parts of the governor's
budget.
He, too noted that there is no
connection between modifying the
amendment and teacher raises.
Mr. Dixon said the problem was
brought about because many dis-
tricts sacrificed class size for
teacher pay. They put to 40 to 45
students in a classroom in order to
bring up teacher salaries.
He noted that currently Okee-
chobee schools have trouble
recruiting teachers. Requirements
for smaller classroom sizes would
increase the demand for teachers.
In addition to a serious budget
problem Mr. Dixon feels the
amendment will create a serious
teacher quality problem.

Okeechobee Brahmans lose nail biter 7-3


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Brahmans
played host to Port St. Lucie (18-
3) Friday night at Brahman Field
and came close to upsetting the
Jaguars who were ranked fifth
in the state going into Friday's
game.
The Jaguars jumped to a 7-0
lead in the first inning to set the
tone for the entire game. The
Brahmans finally got on the
board in the bottom of the third
when Cody Story was put on
first after being hit by a wild
pitch. Brahman hurler Blake
Marsocci then hit a double
down the left field line advanc-
ing Story to third. Brian Duenas'
double brought Story home,
earning Duenas an RBI and put-
ting the Brahmans on the score-


board.
A Jaguar error then brought
home Marsocci for another
Brahman run.
Chris Cyr's sacrifice fly
earned him an RBI as Duenas
then raced home. The third
inning ended with the score 7-3
in favor of the Jaguars.
Marsocci sent three Jaguars
back to the dugout in order in
the fourth and fifth innings.
The bottom of the fifth inning
saw the Brahmans load the
bases only to be shut out by the
Jaguars.
Three Brahmans walked in
the bottom of the sixth, but
were left stranded on base as
the inning ended.
. The Jaguars ended the game
on top 7-3.
The Brahmans will take to
the field again on Tuesday, April

Brahman hurler Blake Marsocci had the hometown crowd on
its feet Friday night when he hit the longest single of the sea-
son. The ball bounced off the top of the left center field wall

When outdoor
Living and playing golf in the
tropics is usually a good thing.
SHowever, whether the sun shines,
the wind blows or the rain falls,
precaution is necessary to protect
your self from the elements.
GustBuster
It has been many years since I
first placed the GustBuster umbrel-
la in my bag. I rarely use it. I'm not
certain if I'm lucky to not catch the
rain too often, or, since I ride in a
golf cart, if the roof is enough to
keep me dry.
Recently, I realized why I have
not removed it from my bag. I was
playing at Palm Beach National
Resort. It was a beautiful, sunny
day. As my group made the turn,
the clouds rolled in. By the time we
reached che mid-point of our final
nine, the skies opened. And the
wind picked-up. Heavy rain. The
wind howled at what must have
been 40 or 50 miles per hour. The
roof of the golf cart was worthless.
There was lightning in the area, so
running for cover under the near-
by trees was not an option.
I reached for my GustBuster
umbrella. The one that was virtual-
ly stuck in a side pouch of my bag.
The wind was so strong, I was cer-
tain I was going to blow away, like
a golfing Mary Poppins. Then the
wind shifted, and I had visions of
becoming a human kabob.
Amazingly, the GustBuster did
not turn inside out. I stayed fairly
dry. And, when the rain stopped, I
was back out on the course to fin-
ish my round quite dry too!
SunBuster
At this year's PGA Merchandise
Show, I picked-up a pair of Sun-
Buster sunglasses. I hadn't had a
chance to try them, however, after
my reminder of how well the Gust-
Buster works, I had to give their
long-awaited entry into sunglasses
a look-see.
These sunglasses have been in
development almost two years
and have been extensively tested
on both the PGA and Champions
Tours. The lens was designed
specifically to enhance the ability
of golfers, at all skill levels, to read
putts better.
"The PuttReaders lens," said
Steven Asman, company presi-
dent, "is byproduct of what we call
ColorScience. Special lens colors
scientifically designed. to achieve
specific vision perception. In the
case of the PuttReaders, it is
designed to reduce the amount of
the color green the eyes see on a
putting .green. This allows the
brain to perceive the colors, like
brown yellow and red, which
define f'te grain, undulations and
contours of a green. The things the
brain must see in order to read
putts better." Take one or two
fewer strokes a round putting and
a good score becomes a winning
score. "Believing is seeing," con-
tends Asman, "it works."
PuttReaders is.also a GolfCor-

rect lens. The GolfCorrect lens is
designed and ground to eliminate
a common flaw of ordinary sun-
glasses lens. With an ordinary
lens, there is prismatic distortion
that occurs when the eye-plane
tilts down to look at the ball as the
head tilts up to clear way for the
golf swing. This prismatic distor-.
tion makes it appear that ball has
moved.
The PuttReaders lens is
designed to be worn all the time
.without fear of distortion, eye
fatigue or dizziness.
PuttReader are available in two
SunBuster frame models, the half-
shell Fuzzy or XCel XChg.The XCel
XChg offers the choice of Black,
Tortoise or Silver frames. The
Fuzzy is available in Black and Tor-
toise. The frames are designed for
a golfer, they're lightweight, they
ride properly on the face and give
unobstructed field of vision.
Nosepads and temple arms adjust
for a perfect fit. The frames are
ultra-thin, ultra-light, ultra-strong,
stylish and slip-proof. The suggest-
ed retail price is $90 for either
model. Both come with hi-impact
zipper shell case and an oversized
cleaning cloth.
For more information about
SunBuster, call (866) SUN-
BUSTER (786-2878) or visit sun-
buster.info. For information, about
GustBuster umbrellas, visit gust-
buster.com or call .888 GUST-
BUSTER.
Neox
Another good option to protect
your eyes from the harsh Florida
sun are sunglasses from Neox. The
average gray sunglass lens blocks
the vast majority of light rays at
essentially the same level across
the visible spectrum. By contrast,
Neox blocks the highest allowable
percentage of harmful blue and
violet rays while allowing more of
the remaining light rays to pass
through. In other words, Neox
blocks more of the light that can
cause damage, and less of the light
that you need to see clearly. Neox
achieves this objective through a
patent-pending combination of
optimized lens design and special
tint technology that help you to see
as clearly as possible.
Wearing sunglasses slightly
decreases clarity of vision. So, too,
do wraparound.renses. Neox tech-

fect for golf) with G22 polycarbonate lenses and inset rubber

nology compensates for both.
Neox lenses are constructed in
such a manner that they adjust to
the decreased depth of field
caused by most sunglasses. They

Prices still extremely high on all
cattle. Feeders under 400 pounds
were $2 to $3 higher. Slaughter
cows and bulls strongly steady.
Heavier feeders were strong also.
Quality of cattle was above aver-
age for this time of year. F.B. Tous-
saint, of Lake Placid topped the calf
market with a high of $2.75. Stokes
cattle of Okeechobee topped the
cow market with a high of $63.50.
We have 75 head of bred cows
and pairs for sale.
