County tackles cemetery issue


* ~ .w -


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Hopefully, the matter of issu-
ing burial certificates at Fort
Drum Cemetery has been laid
to rest.
The Okeechobee County
Board of County Commission-
ers acted on that matter as well
as discussing changes to the
county's comprehensive plan at
their Thursday meeting. Com-
missioners also heard reports
from Maureen Burroughs of


Okeechobee Main Street, and
Lynn Topel of Florida's Heart-
land Regional Economic Devel-
opment Imitative (FHREDI) and
discussed the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA) Hazard Mitigation Grant
program application. -
The county has been selling
plots in the public cemetery at
Fort Drum. However, the origi-
nal families in the area have
claimed family plots. To avoid
confusion, county officials have
been meeting with representa-


tives of the families to establish
boundaries to family plots. The
deadline for submission of
claims for family plots was April
15.
Tony Ard, facilities director
for the county, presented to the
commissioners for their
approval a list of 35 families that
claimed a total of 228 burial
plots.
Mr. Ard noted that there were
only three families they could
not contact.
He said in the old section of


Dinner theatre: South Singers put on performances


the cemetery, there are still
plots available and that they will
be sold for the same price as
lots in other parts of the ceme-
tery.
General William Hair 1Il
appeared before the board to
protest his claim that had been
rejected.
County Attorney John Cas-
sels said he had met with Mr.
Hair's attorney. He said Mr. Hair
claimed the entire cemetery and
Mr. Cassels did not feel this was
a good faith claim. He advised


against extending the deadline,
saying that if it were extended
for one person, it would have to
be extended for other appli-
cants.
Mr. Hair stated that he sub-
mitted his application on April
11 and did not receive notice
that the application was reject-
ed until after the deadline
passed.
Commissioner Ray Domer

Morgan and King
take first place
Twenty-four members of
the local teen bass fishing club
competed in a bass tourna-
ment Saturday morning at the

state competition.
Twelve-year-old Mhittei&v
Morgan brought five fish to
the scale to take first place in
the junior division of the tour-
nament with 10.51 lbs. of

nament. He also had the sec-
ond biggest fish of the entire
tourney. It weighed in at 6.12
lbs.

place with three fish weighing
9.93 lbs. His 6.36 lb. bass was

for; the entire tournament.

Hendry family helped area grow


As told to MaryAnn Morris
By Judge William Hendry
The Hendry family made its
way east from Arcadia to Okee-
chobee to become part of the
history of Okeechobee County.
Judge William Hendry, retired
chief judge of the Nineteenth
Judicial circuit, now a senior
judge for the Circuit remem-
bers:
"James J. (Jack) Hendry, my
grandfather, came east from
Arcadia sometime in the early
1900s. He was born Joshua
Creek, later the family moved to
Venus. They always had a cattle
ranch where they lived. Here in
Okeechobee County, too. We're
not the Hendry County
Hendrys. No relation at all.
"Eventually, my grandfather
had a fishing business in Lake-
port. That v as l912,
"My dad,W illiam J. Hendry,
served in World War I, when he
came home on leave it was to
Lakeport. My dad and his broth-
ers worked in my grandfather's


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





fishing business. My grandfather
had the fishing boat and crew
and his boys worked for him.
He also had 40 acres on Fisheat-
ing Creek.
"My dad really had three
jobs. All he did was work. He
owned a camp in Buckhead
Ridge in the 1930s and 40s
called Keego Sports Fishing
Camp. It was right across S.R.
70 from where the Buckhead
Ridge Fire Station is now. My
Uncle Cab (Calvin Hendry)
managed it for my dad. My
dad's other brothers, Russell
and Albert, worked the cattle


and fish business with my dad.
My dad would work the fish
business during the week and
cattle on the weekends.
"My dad bought a house in
Okeechobee in 1923 off South
Parrot near where Skip's Bar-
beque is now and had his fish
business next door. I went
through school here in Okee-
chobee. Few roads, even in
downtown were paved when
we were growing up. Even
close to the courthouse, not all
the roads in town were paved.
We went to school in the build-
ing where the Freshman Cam-
pus is now.
"In grade school no one real-
ly wore shoes back then. In high
school you did, but not grade
school. Growing up we made
our own fun. We had chores to
do. I worked in my dad's fish
business which was here in
town off South Parrott by then.
But Saturday or Sunday after-

noons, someone would show up
over in the park (Flagler Park) and
it didn't take too long to get a
game going. There were several
grocery stores in town when I
was growing up: Wise's on South
Park, McCarthy's on North Park
and Raulerson's at the Corner of
South Park and Hargraves' in East
Okeechobee.
"After high school and the mili-
tary, I went on to college to the
University of Florida in Gainesville
and earned a degree in agricul-
ture. Later, I went to law school
there. I remember the road from
the campus into downtown
Gainesville was a two-lane dirt
road with big live oak trees arch-
ing over it completely. I've been
back since, but I don't recognize
anything, so much has changed.
"I grew up in Okeechobee.
The house I grew up in was built
in 1924. It sat about a block from
the courthouse near the old jail.
My mother's father was contrac-
tor on the building of the old
courthouse. That was 1926 to
1927.
"My dad served in the state leg-
islature from 1941 to 1951. He had
a nickname, too. He stood 6 foot 5
inches tall and the Seminoles
called him "Big Boy" and it
stuck."

did not agree with extending a
deadline that was set in Novem-
ber.
Mr. Hair admitted that he
knew of the deadline but that he
had sought legal representation.
Commissioner Gene Woods
stated his belief that extending
the deadline would cause trou-
ble.
Since April 11, Mr. Hair modi-
fied his claim to include only 64
sites.
Commissioner Clif Betts pro-
posed that the county act based
on the April 11 application that
requested the entire cemetery
and grant only 64 plots. He noted
that the county could grant less
than the number of plots
requested. He made a motion
that the commissioners approve
the 228 burial plots 'Mr. Ard pre-
sented plus the 64 claimed by
Mr. Hair, provided they did not
overlap any previous claims.
The motion died for lack of a
second.
The board then unanimously
voted approval of Mr. Ard's
request that a total of 228 plots
be granted to 35 families.
Turning to another matter,
commissioners discussed possi-
ble amendments to the county's
comprehensive plan. Planning
Director Bill Royce noted that
there were still some changes to
be made. The board voted to
table the matter until their next
meeting in order for staff to
make the necessary changes.
The proposed changes would
set density of development in
rural activity centers, amend the
future land use map, provide for
a resort corridor and provide for
a rural estate land classification.
Mrs. Burroughs, representing
Okeechobee Main Street, gave
the commissioners a quarterly
report from her organization.
She said her organization had
submitted four grants and
recieved approval on three of
them for a total of $23,000. She
said they had placed 20 banners
in the Park Street area, and
increased membership. As for
future plans, Main Street is plan-
ning a bike rally in May, a chili
cook-off in the fall and an arts
.and crafts festival in the fall.
Mrs. Burroughs noted that
Main Street had also applied for
a grant to repair the old jail.
Commissioners agreed to
advertise for bids to replace the
roof on the jail. It was noted that
by the time the bids were in it
they would know if the grant
were approved and at that time
the commissioners could decide
if they wanted to use grant
money or county money to pay
for a new roof.
In economic matters, Lynn
Topel of FHREDI. thanked the
commissioners for their support
of her organization. She told the
board of print advertisements to
promote tourism in the central
Florida area.
She noted that FHREDI han-
dled the Bridge Loans, which
helped small businesses get
started again after the hurri-

Ms. Topel also stated that her
organization had received a
grant of $50,000 from South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict to train historically underuti-
lized business. She claimed that
a certain percent of government
contracts are reserved for such
small businesses.
Ms. Topel also told the board
that her organization works in
the areas of education, business
development, securing broad-
band internet service and financ-
ing options.
Part of the afternoon was
spent reviewing and approving a

gram application for stormwater
management in southwest
Okeechobee.
The county had previously
discussed the flooding situation
caused by last year's hurricanes
in the areas west of U.S. 441 S.
and south of S.W 15th Street. It
was mentioned that flood con-
trol efforts would have to be
coordinated with the city and
that it could take up to six
months to get approval for the
grant.
Commissioners also spent
some time Thursday afternoon
discussing reorganizing county
,office spaces with the comple-
tion of the new courthouse.
County Administrator George
Long noted that use of the old
courthouse spaces would have
to be determined before a
restoration plan for the building
could be put into place.
He discussed centralization of
offices for efficiency and cus-
tomer service.
The consensus was to contin-
ue to use the Teen Town building
for the near future.

one full time office assistant in
code compliance; ....

Local school promotes trees
By D.Hamoton
Okeechobee News


North Elementary School pre-k,
kindergarten and second grade stu-
dents helped make, a statement
about preserving our environment
and future by holding a tree plant-
ing ceremony on Arbor Day, Friday,
April 29. More than 200 students
celebrated trees by participating in
the annual event. The children lis-
tened to poems, and sang songs in
celebration of trees. They learned
about the history of Arbor Day and
they also learned the proper way to
plant a tree. The Florida Nursery,
Growers and Landscape Associa-
tion (FNGLA) provided schools
around the state, with free trees.
Teachers from North Elementary
School used vouchers issued, to
purchase items from FNGLA mem-
ber nurseries necessary for the tree
planting ceremony. This year,
North Elementary School planted
five trees altogether.
The Okeechobee County Exten-
sion Service continued the Arbor
Day lesson by introducing a
"Neighborhood Tree Book" pro-
gram. Students were encouraged
to complete a story on their favorite
tree and submit it to their teachers.
Students turning in the assignment
are eligible for the "Tree-mendous
Tiger Award" adding their story to
the Neighborhood Tree Book
which will be presented to their
school library.

Graffiti
"Have you seen the unfinished new house in Basswood on
N.W. 36th? There is graffiti on the new shingles and siding. This is
not a harmless prank. You are responsible for your child's actions.
As a parent you should know where they are and what they are
doing."

Traffic Light
"What in the world is wrong with our county commissioners
that they allow the state to come in here and widen U.S. 441 North
and not put up a light at the hospital? They put a light up at the
school, which is fine and dandy, but they should put one at the
hospital 'cause I bet you in a 24-hour period the hospital has just
as much traffic as the school."

Turn Them Off
"I thought it was against the law to leave the motor running on
your vehicle when you go into a business. There are many people
who have heart and lung problems who cannot tolerate the smell
of exhaust. So please turn off your motors and leave your dogs at
home."

Basswood
"What is going on in Basswood? The graffiti is terrible. It is all
over one of the brand new homes under construction all over the
roof. The police need to get in to Basswood, and the parents need to
be aware of where their kids are. Someone knows who is doing it
and it is terrible that it is now moving on to peoples' houses."

By Daniel Shube
Most golfers are guilty of
spending the majority of their
practice time at the driving range
pounding drive after drive. Then
they wonder why their score is
not improving. Since more than
half of the shots you will hit out
on the golf course are from 50
yards or closer to the green, if
you really want to lower your
score, it is the short game that
requires at least 50 percent of
your practice time.
The other part of the equation
is that you need to be practicing
with the correct technique. If
you practice incorrectly, you will
get even better at hitting bad
shots! In a perfect world, you
would call Hank Haney, swing
instructor to Tiger Woods, and
have him work with you weekly.
I'm sure you will have no prob-
lem with his fee (money is no
object when it comes to improv-
ing your golf game!).
If you have been spending
entirely too much time on your
long game, but would rather not
invest the time and money in les-
sons, I have a different sugges-
tion. You will still have to invest
the time part in some practice.
For the instruction part, let me


Fairways
and
Highways
by Daniel Shube

recommend a new book, Golf's
Short Game for DUMMIES.
Michael Patrick Sheils wrote
this book with help from PGA
Teaching Professional Michael.
Kermicki. Kermicki is the Head
Professional at the Indian Creek
Country Club in Miami Beach.
Golf's Short Game for Dum-
mies can be read cover-to-cover
to provide everything you need
to know about the short game.
The authors cover every aspect
of the short game, including
pitches, chips and putts. They
also provide insight into how to
hit from every lie. Read and then
practice; sand, trees, rough,
lobs, you name it, will no longer
be frightening.
If you prefer, use the book as
a reference guide, searching for
a particular problem you face.
Work on it, then move on to the
