Mr. Conely noted that ARC had
been operating for about 37 years
continuously and had provided a
valuable service to the community
- training their clients to be viable
citizens.
He pointed out that the county
made a request last summer for a
partial release of the property. This
agreement, he continued, would
allow the county to use part of the
property for parking while ARC
would retain use of the building.
The agreement was approved
byARC's board of directors.
However, there was an error in
the leg al description of the proper-
ty. The agreement was sent back
to the county for correction. Mr.
Conely stated that before the docu-
ment could be corrected, two hur-
ricanes hit Okeechobee.

,The future location of the Asso-
ciation of Retarded Citizens of
Okeechobee (ARC) is still uncer-
tain at this time.
In proceedings before a full
meeting room and an area televi-
sion camera crew the Okee-
chobee County Board of County
Commissioners spent a consider-
able amount of time Thursday
morning discussing the county's
lease with ARC. The matter was
fin* tabled until the next meet-
ing. In the meantime, a workshop
will be set up between commis-
sioners and the ARC board of
directors.
In July of 1992, the county
entered into a 99-year lease agree-


ment with the organization then
known as the Okeechobee Reha-
bilitation Facility. They have since
changed their name to ARC.
The leased property is located
on the block diagonally to the
northeast of the new courthouse.
County Attorney John Cassels
stated that an objective review of
the facts would indicate that ARC
had defaulted on their lease
because the building was not
maintained, ARC was not occupy-
ing it and some insurance had
lapsed.
The couiity wants to turn the
land into a parking lot for the new
courthouse.
Nancy Ziegler, executive direc-
tor of ARC, had said previously that
the facility has all the insurance
required by the lease.


Mr. Cassels stated there had
been little communication from
ARC as to their intentions. He
added that the county was not
heartlessly evicting ARC. He rec-
ommended the county declare the
lease to be defaulted, renegotiate
another lease and determine at
what level the county would fund
ARC.
The county attorney said there
is a perception that ARC is holding
on to a lease they don't need, and
are using it as a bargaining tool
with the county He said that
declaring a default would preserve
the county's rights.
Attorney Tom Conely repre-
sented ARC. He was filling in for
ARC'sattorney Colin Cameron
who was out of town because of a
family medical emergency.

Seven Everglades Elementary
School thirdgrade students have
been suspended from school for
reportedly trying to sell or pos-
sessing a substance purported to
be marijuana.
I A press release. from the
Okeechobee' County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) states that a field
test performed on the substance
Thursday, April 28, indicated it
was not marijuana. The sub-
stance was determined to be a
mixture of household herbs.
Other than the suspensions,
the school will take no further
action against the students, said
Assistant Superintendent of


Schools Lee Dixon. He added
that there will be no expulsions
at this level, and that none of the
children were taken away from
the school in handcuffs.
"Our discipline has been
administered and there will not
be additional consequences," he.
said Friday. "Essentially, the thing
is wrapped up. Our punishment
has been handed out."
The school district's*punish-
ment may be over, but the inci-
dent is not being put to rest yet.
According to the OCSO press
release, the sheriff's office has
been in contact with the state
attorney and one of the children
could be charged with the sale of

S--m.- 13 Vision Quest clients


arrested after altercation


Following a verbal altercation
between two clients, a riot near-
ly erupted at the Vision Quest
facility and 13 girls were subse-
quently arrested, stated a press
release from the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO).
The press release states that
when OCSO deputies arrived at
the Vision Quest facility on U.S.
441 they found four female
clients yelling in an apparent
attempt to incite a riot. Vision
Quest staff members tried to
restrain two of the girls but were
struck in the process of doing so,


said the release.
As deputies began to arrest
the four clients who were
allegedly trying to start a riot, a
crowd began to form. The
clients were told to return to
their cottages but nine refused
and were arrested, stated the
release.
Arrested on charges of incit-
ing a riot, resisting arrest without
violence and battery on deten-
tion staff were Ashley Blue, .16,
and Jessica Larry, 16.
Arrested on charges of incit-
ing a riot and resisting arrest


without violence were: Tashiana
Barnes, 18; Calinda Gibson, 16;
Terriyaka Brown, 16; Shawanda
Williams, 16; Tara Beard, 16;
Kiya Pryor, 16; Krystal Harden,
16; Fredrina Boston, 17; Sade
Evans, 16; Angela Burton,17;
and, Chestonia Green, 15.

All 13 clients were booked
into the Okeechobee County

ty jail where she is being held
without bond. The remaining

Pierce Detention Center.

to vacate the lease. He said ARC
was forced to relocate because of
storm damage to the building, and
that the utilities in the building are
still connected and are being paid.
Even though no one is currently
using the building, he said it was
not vacated.
As for insurance, Mr. Conley
contended the ARC has ample
______=E funds for coverage.
He said that ARC's first notice of
the county's intent was when the
agenda for the meeting was mailed
out. He urged that the commission-
ers take no action at that time and
plan a workshop with ARC's board
ofdirectors.
"This seems to be a last minute
request for action," Mr. Conely said.
He noted that the property in
question looks better than it did
after the hurricanes.
Commissioner Ray Domer
asked Mr. Conley the conse-
quences of declaring default. He
suggested the county could enter
into a different type of agreement
with ARC.
Mr. Conley pointed out that
default would set the stage for liti-
gation and eviction.
"What kind of message are you
sending to the community?" he
asked commissioners.
Mr. Domer stated that it was not
so much a legal issue as a moral
issue. He noted the county's
responsibility for the segment of
9 9 1 society served by ARC.
"We're not trying to send a mes-
0 0 sage that we don't care. We need to
talk. We need to find a middle
ground," Commissioner Elvie
Posey said.
He added that the county needs
a parking lot and ARC needs a
place to do business. He expressed
hope that both ends could be
achieved, and added that the coun-
ty has a moral obligation in the
matter.
Mr. Posey referred to the fact


that the building was in bad repair,
calling it a "public nuisance" and
noting that another hurricane sea-
son is almost here.
Mr. Posey said the purpose of
the agenda item was to bring things
to a head and initiate communica-
tions. He said he wanted to get into
negotiations to see what ARC want-
ed to do.
"I feel an obligation to Rehab
(ARC); we're not trying to run them
out of anything," Commissioner
Gene Woods avowed.
Mr. Woods referred to a tele-
phone message on Sep. 28, 2004,
to the county administrator's office
from Jeanne Baggett, an adminis-
trative assistant at ARC.
The telephone message note
pad recorded the conversation
thusly: "You can have the REHAB
building and the parking lot and
use it all for the courthouse parking
lot. Can the county help finance
their move as per the lease? They
have their clients at the thrift store."
A clause in the lease states that if
the commission determines anoth-
er use for the property that is in the
public interest, the commission has
the right to relocate the facility to
other county-owned property at
the county's expense.
Mrs. Zeigler later said in an inter-
view that Mrs. Baggett assured her
that conversation never took place.
She further stated that Mrs. Baggett
did not have the authority to make
such a statement, and that a deci-
sion to vacate the building would
have to be made by the ARC board
of directors.
Mr. Conely said. his first percep-
tion was that the county was using
the hurricanes to get out of a 99-
year lease.
"If there were no hurricane, we
wouldn't be here," he asserted.
He eluded to the fact the court-
house and other county buildings
still have not been repaired after
hurricanes Frances and Jeanne
swept through the area last sum-
mer.
He further asserted that if the

Agency (FEMA) had cooperated
with ARC, the necessary repairs
would have been made.
Mr. Woods asked Mr. Conley
what he would do if it were his
building.
"I wouldn't want it," was Mr.
Conley's reply.
He went on to say the county
owns it and ARC has not asked the
county for money for repairs.
Mr. Conley went on to say if the
building cannot be repaired ARC
needs to rethink their options.
He said the estimated price tag
of $465,000 for repairs is less costly
than building a new facility.
"We are sending a message if
we declare default today," Com-
missioner Clif Betts warned. "We
need to sit down with the ARC
board and either terminate the
lease or renegotiate it."
Mr. Betts said that the location is
an asset because clients could walk
to the building. At their current
location, in Cedar Plaza, that is not
the case.
Commission Chairman John
Abney asked if ARC had an action
plan. .
Mr. Conley said he was not pre-
pared to address that issue since he
was only filling in for Mr. Cameron.
Mrs. Ziegler said she would feel
much more comfortable with Mr.
Cameron there.
"Obviously, a great deal of mis-
information has been given to
you," she told the board.
She told the commissioners she
had no idea when a reply would be
received on her application for an
SBA loan for building repairs, and
that her board is open-minded and
willing to discuss their options.
In the current real estate market,
she continued, it would not be
practical to purchase other proper-
ty.
"We're about taking care of this
community," Mrs. Ziegler said, as
she explained ARC's operation.
Mr. Abney asked if ARC had con-
sidered a new building, but Mrs.
Zieglar replied that their focus has
been on rebuilding.

a counterfeit substance.
However, continued the
release, the situation at the elemen-
tary school is still under investiga-
tion and no decision has been
made if the case will be turned over
to the state attorney for prosecu-
tion.
The press release went on to say
that two of the children have been
suspended for nine days, while the
other five each received a five-day
suspension.
"The length of the suspension
depends on their level of involve-
ment," said Mr. Dixon. "The kids
clearly knew it was wrong, but at
this level they aren't strong enough
to say no."
He went on to say the parents of
the students involved backed the
suspensions..
"The parents were supportive of
* the school," he added, "and they'll
(the children) be dealt with severe-
ly."
Everglades Elementary, located
at 3725 S.E. Eighth St., has an
enrollment of about 700 students,
said Mr. Dixon.

The


N


Fishin' Line


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
It looks like it's going to be a
good weekend to go fishing. The
weather is supposed to be beauti-
ful and the fish are biting.
Anglers are catching specks on
minnows in the river, at King's Bar
and jigging at Indian Prairie.
Tackle and bait shops have stat-
ed that their fishermen are hooking
bass west of King's Bar, from the
banks of the river, at Tin House,
Indian Prairie, Harney Pond and
Henry Creek. Some anglers have
been successful using watermelon


flukes and speed worms. Others
are catching them early in the
morning on top water bait, then
after 8 a.m switching to white spin-
nerbait.
Make plans to attend the Satur-
day weigh-in of the local teen bass
fishing club tournament. The
weigh-in will take place at noon at
Okee-Tantie Marina.
The Christian Team Trail will
host its Classic on Saturday, May 7
at the Okee-Tantie Marina. They
will weigh-in at 1 p.m. This tourna-
ment is open only to anglers who
have qualified to fish this tourney.
In order to qualify they had to com-
pete in four of the seven Christian
Team Trail tournaments through-
out the season.
Headturners3.com will return
to Okeechobee on May 14-15.
Their weigh-ins are currently
scheduled for 3 p.m.
The Russ Bringger Memorial
Bass Tournament is also scheduled
to take place in May. It will be held
at Okee-Tantie Marina on Saturday,
May28.
Enjoy the weekend and good
luck fishing.

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.
co 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 "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.
\ Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Dr. John Keith
Pastor of Oakview Baptist Church
A farmer was in need of a
hired hand to help on his farm.
He posted a notice in the village.
Three promising youths
responded and the farmer met
each one in turn. He asked the
first young man about his back-
ground, and concluded with a
peculiar question: "tell me, how
long can you work with a stone
in your shoe?" The youth
answered "Half a day." The
farmer thanked him and sent
him on his way. The farmer then


spoke withth the second youth.
Again, he talked with him about
his background and concluded
with the peculiar question, "How
long can you work with a stone
in your shoe?" This young man
boasted, "I could work all day
with a stone in my shoe." The
farmer thanked him and sent
him on his way. The farmer then
met with the third youth. In the
interview, he asked about his
background and experience
working on a farm. The farmer
concluded the interview with the
peculiar question: "How long
can you work with a stone in


your shoe?" The youth
exclaimed, "Not a minute! When
I get a stone in my shoe, I take it
out right away." The farmer hired
the third youth on the spot.
Sometimes people get used to
things in their lives that they
should not get used to. For
instance, some people grow
accustomed to sin in their lives.
When we sin, it is like a stone in
your shoe it causes discomfort
and disability- we limp. Some
people grow accustomed to the
pain and the limp and they con-
tinue on in life without realizing
how it is effecting them. How
tragic that some folks don't know
that Jesus-Christ can forgive sin
and cleanse them and remove
the limp from their lives. In Math-


ew 11:28 Jesus said, "Come unto
me, all ye that labour and are
heavy laden, and I will give you
rest." How burdened some folks
are because of the stone of sin in
their shoe that causes them to
limp. How refreshing it is to have
the stone removed and the pain
to cease and to be able to walk
without hurting.
Are you limping? Are you bur-
dened by a load of sin? Why not
come to Jesus and let Him
remove the burden and restore
your walk? Listen to what Acts
3:19 promises to those who
repent: "Repent ye therefore and
be converted, that your sins may
be blotted out, when the times of
refreshing shall come from the
presence of the Lord."

gram offers. We serve children 6
weeks to 5 years. To qualify the
family must have migrated in the
past 24 months worked in agricul-
ture and primary income must
come from agriculture. We
encourage families of children with
disabilities to apply. For informa-
tion, call (863) 467-0702 and ask

.Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)


Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)
