OUA's new $8 million surface
water treatment plant, that has
been online for about a month,

plant should eliminate that

I'm a cat lover. We had a
Siamese cat here in 1936. Peo-
ple heard about it and no one
had ever seen one. Someone
came to see "the twins" one
time, not realizing that we
weren't talking about Siamese
Dr. Wells was the first real vet
in town. He had been vet for
one of the silent movie stars (it
might have been Norma Tal-
madge) when she wintered in
Florida. She had a female
Siamese cat who became preg-
nant, but when the kittens were

born, one wasn't pure Siamese.
She didn't want that one, so Dr.
Wells asked us if we wanted it.
My mother was a great cat lover
and had a Persian cat named
Sweetheart at that time, so she
took the kitten and named him
"Doc" after Doctor Wells. But
Doctor Wells never really liked
that cat. He said that Doc always
looked at him as if he (Doc the
cat) knew more than he (Doc
the vet) did!
Those were the days of the
Big Band Era. Everyone, young
and old alike, listened to the

difference there is now. When I
say old, I mean the young mar-

us. Every other week a band
would come to town. to the old

SFWMD hosting
public workshop
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) will host a work-
shop on Thursday, June 9, at their
Okeechobee Service Center Audi-
torium, 205 N. Parrott Ave., Ste.
201, from 6:30 until 9 p.m.
The purpose of the workshop
is to gather public feedback and
comments for the agency's recre-
ational use program.

A local woman was arrested
after she reportedly took busi-
ness checks from her place of
employment and then forged the
owner's signature.
Arrested on May 24 was Deb-
orah Ezinski, 50, of N.W. Sixth St.
She was charged with 44 counts

The new plant is permitted to
produce 5 million gallons of
water a day. The old plant, which
dates back to the 1920s, was origi-
nally designed to produce 1.8 mil-
lion gallons a day. Through
upgrades, the old plant was able
to produce a maximum of 2 mil-
lion gallons a day of quality water.
"This is a much better
process," said Kevin Rogers, lead
plant operator.
While the old plant produced
1,500 gallons per minute, the new
plant produces 3,500 gallons per
minute with no problem.
Mr. Reno said it took four
hours for water to go through the
old plant. But, it takes less then 20
minutes for water to go through
the treatment process at the new
plant. Therefore, the new plant
produces more water in a lot less

The storm surge from last
year's hurricanes plugged OUA's
water intake system on the lake
with mud, which clogged up the
filers at the old treatment plant.
Mr. Reno said that OUA is cur-
rently seeking funds for a bank fil-
tration system that would elimi-
nate this problem. With bank
filtration, pipes are laid under the
lake floor. Water filters through
the sand covering the pipes and
into holes in the pipes. However,
such a system is costly to install.
To begin the purification
process, raw lake water is
pumped through a large rotating
drum of screen material. This
removes larger objects such as
grass, twigs and minnows. Sand
and polymer are then added to
the water. The polymer causes
the sediments in the water to
cling to the sand, which rapidly
settles out to the bottom and is fil-
tered out of the water.
The resulting sludge is slung
off the sand, pumped into a hold-
ing tank and them to an onsite
plant where it is processed into
dry cakes suitable for land appli-
cation. Most of the 5 to 7 pounds

committed by using a rubber sig-

The ozone is manufactured in
a building adjacent to the plant by
electrifying liquid oxygen. Ozone
disinfects and kills the taste and
odor. Mr. Reno said it is one of the
strongest disinfectants known.
Then the water is pumped into
five, 1-million-gallon settling tanks
That are covered by screens to
keep out bugs. As the water
leaves these tanks, it is filtered
through a foot of sand and 2 feet
of granulated charcoal.
Before being pumped into a
storage tank and out into the dis-
tribution system, chlorine is
added to the water.
About 10 percent of the back-
wash water used to wash the fil-
ters is recycled through the purifi-
cation system.
The plant has two separate
clarification units that can operate
independently of each other. Each
unit is permitted at 2.5 million gal-
lons a day. While one is in use, the
other can be serviced.

One night two of the band
members who were staying at the
Inn got in a fight in their room.
Two of them were sharing a
room. One punched the other
one so hard it knocked him right
through the wall onto Mr. Plun-
kett's desk where he was sitting in
the next room in the room next
door! Mr. Plunkett was an
employee for the sugar company
who lived at the Inn, as did many
of the young people. Rentals were
scarce then, as they are now!
I remember one night that I
was sitting with my husband in
the lounge of the old Clewiston
Inn, the one that burned down.
All of a sudden, a live raccoon
came bounding across the room.
People screamed and climbed up
on the chair seats and tables! Dr.
Shoop was there that night with a
member of the Board of General
Motors. What a scene! As it
turned out, two of the hotel
guests had been out hunting and
thought it would be a good joke
to let the raccoon go in the lounge
that night!
The old Clewiston Inn burned
down in 1937. You see, they didn't

first, but from the Celotex they

But, Celotex burned very easily,

There's a mural in the cocktail
lounge of the new Inn painted by
J. Clinton Shepherd in the 1940s.
The mural covers all four walls of
the lounge. There is a raccoon
shown in the mural. When his
daughter had her 50th wedding
anniversary, she came out here to
celebrate at the Inn.
The original school building
was built from red brick and it's
still standing after all the hurri-
canes. One of the first houses is
still standing, too. It stands at the
end of Royal Palm Avenue and it
was built in 1928 by Clewiston's
first mayor, F. Dean Duff, who was
mayor for 10 years. Dean Duff
Avenue was named after him.
The original office of the sugar
company was so friendly to every-
one here in town. They did so
much for this town. Anything they
could help with, they did. We had
an 18-hole golf course, a good
library, swimming pools and an
auditorium. It's named John Boy

was a president of U.S. Sugar.

it is if they hadn't been so nice to

many changes that I've come to

familiar with now. I'm so lucky.
My life has been so interesting.

Kindergarten Graduation
I am calling about the kindergarten graduation. I don't think it
is fair that Central and Everglades has a graduation and all the
other kids do not. That is what the kids look forward to. Why can't
the other schools like North have graduation too? (Editor's Note:
-Thanks for calling. We contacted the school district office and
were told kindergarten graduation is a decision made by the
school's principal, based on input from the faculty and school
advisory council.)

OHS Graduation
I was wondering, why wasn't the Agri-Civic Center used for
graduation? (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. From what we
were told, the graduating seniors at Okeechobee High School
voted against using that facility.)

Storing Water
If I stock up on water for hurricane purposes will it stay good
for a couple of months, like three months at a time? Is there some-
thing special I should do to it? And should it be stored in metal,
plastic or glass? (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. We contacted
the Okeechobee County Health Department and were told that
plastic or glass containers are best for storing water over a pro-
longed period of time. Before storing the water, treat it as if you
were under a boil water notice. In other words, either put eight
to 10 drops of household bleach in the water or else bring it to a
rolling boil. Then, cap the container tightly.)

Billboard Signs
I would like somebody in the Okeechobee News to tell us why
people on U.S. 441 will not remove their very large wrecked
signs? They have been there since the hurricane and nothing has
been done to them. Isn't it about time something was done? (Edi-
tor's Note: Thanks for calling. We spoke with the county's code
enforcement office, as well as the planning and zoning depart-
ment about your concern. We were told that several of the bill-
boards destroyed by last year's hurricanes will not be allowed to
be replaced. In short, billboards must meet both current and
future land use regulations. The signs that can't be replaced do
not meet those criteria. We were told the regulations have been
changed since the billboards were first installed, and were
allowed to stay in place since they were already there. We were
also told that violation notices have been issued by county code
enforcement officers, and they have been in touch with the prop-
erty owners who then must contact the company that owns the
billboard about getting the sign removed. The billboard compa-
ny may either lease a portion of land on which they can place
their billboard, or they can purchase the property.)

The Okeechobee County Historical Society was formed in 1974. The association displays photos, newspapers and arti-

Golf Links -

Chay ani
By Daniel Shube
While playing golf on any given
sunny Florida weekend, it is easy to
forget the long history of this won-
derful game we play. So, every
once in a while, it's good to take a
look back to the illustrious history
of golf. Some of you seniors may
remember back to the days of
Byron Nelson or Sam Snead. Few
will still remember the early days of
golf in America. So to find out how
it all began, here and across the
pond, we have to depend upon the
accounts of historians.
I recently had the pleasure of
reading, Golf Links Chay Burgess,
Francis Ouimet, and The Bringing
of Golf to America, a new book
written by Charles D. Burgess.
Charles, also known as Chuck, had
the opportunity to hear first hand
accounts from his father Charles
Chay came over from the home
of golf, Scotland, as a pioneer golf
instructor. His young student, Fran-
cis Ouimet, won the 1913 U.S.
Open as a 20-year-old amateur.
Just imagine if that were to happen
in this year's Open against the likes
of Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Ernie
Els, Phil Mickelson and Retief
Goosen! Well, the field then con-
sisted of golf's superstars of their
day, such as Harry Vardon.
When Ouimet won, the head-
lines round the world were similar
to this one from the New York Tri-
bune "Francis Ouimet, A Youthful
Amateur, .Astounds the Golfing
World by Beating Veteran Masters

1 Oimet





of the Game and Winning Open
In addition to chronicling the life
and times of Chay Burgess and the
world of golf from the early 1900s
through 1960, the book offers
many great black and white photos
and clippings that offer a great per-
spective of golf in the day.
Another bonus is the teachings
of Chay Burgess. For example:
"You notice that I speak of
sweeping the ball rather than hit-
ting, for the hit, to my mind, means
the application of sheer power and
will not do. It must revert to the true
arc of the pendulum swing every
time. Acceleration or speed will
sweep the ball away with rhythm
more smoothly than the rigidness
that goes with a hit. Correct golf
swinging is as' graceful as any
action in sport. Not only is it
smooth and rhythmic, but exact."
No wonder why his student,
Ouimet won the open!

If you get a chance, listen to my
radio show, Inside Golf this Tues-
day night (June 7), when I'll be talk-
ing with author Chuck Burgess
about Golf Links, Chay Burgess,
Francis Ouimet and this year's U.S.
Open. Chuck will be posing the
question to my co-host, PGA
Teaching Pro, Dave Rossi, "Do the
teachings of Chay Burgess still hold

up today?" The show is heard on

you can tune it in at

UF experts say Feral pig problem here to stay

By Chuck Woods
population boom now includes
some 500,000 wild hogs
whose piggish habits are
causing problems for farmers,
residents and health officials as
well as native flora and fauna.
"Nothing personal, but the
only state with more wild hogs
than Florida is Texas," said Bill
Giuliano, an assistant professor
of wildlife ecology at the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. Wild
or feral hogs can now be found
in every Florida county and in at
least 35 states including 1 to 2
million hogs in the Southeast.
Nationwide, their population
totals about 3 million.
"Because they are prolific
breeders, there is no way to
completely eradicate them,"
Giuliano said. "Even with inten-
sive hunting pressure, you're not
going to get rid of them."
He said the problem can be
traced to 1539 when Hernando
DeSoto brought hogs into south-
west Florida, and some of them
found freedom in the New
World. Nearly 500 years later,
there are some 3 million descen-
dants of these "pioneer pigs"
across the nation.
In Florida, some of the high-
est densities of feral hogs can be
found north and west of Lake
Okeechobee where large forest-

environmental horticulture at

Feral hogs resemble domestic hogs, but are usually leaner with
different behaviors to survive in the wild, according to
researchers with the University of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences. Wild hogs have an excellent sense
of smell and good hearing, but relatively poor vision. They use
variety of vocalizations, including an alarm grunt given to sense
an intruder that causes a flight response by the rest of the herd.

ed tracts, dense vegetation,
abundant water and limited
public access provide an ideal
environment for the pigs. Hog
numbers tend to be lower in
areas with intensive agriculture
or urban development.
"Although they are a popular
target for hunters, wild hogs are
coming into conflict with people
and wildlife," Giuliano said.
"Farmers are not happy when
feral hogs root up their fields,

and health officials say the ani-
mals carry diseases that could
affect wildlife, livestock and
Giuliano, who conducts
research on the animals with
George Tanner, a professor in
the UP wildlife ecology and con-
servation department, said hogs
can also host many diseases and
parasites, including hog cholera,
psuedorabies, brucellosis,
tuberculosis, salmonellosis,

ment's statewide teaching and
research programs.
Wilson, who joined the
UF/IFAS faculty in 1999, has a
doctoral degree in plant physiol-
ogy from Clemson University.
She also completed post-doctor-
al programs at Clemson and
Chiba University in Japan. Her
bachelor's and master's degrees
in animal and plant science are
from the University of Delaware.

anthrax, ticks, fleas, lice and var-
ious flukes and worms.
"Wild hogs, which usually
weigh 100 to 200 pounds, are
dangerous," Giuliano said.
"Although they prefer to run and
escape danger, they can be
aggressive when they're injured
or cornered. They can move
with great speed and can cause
serious injury with their tusks."
Acorns are their favorite
food, but they will eat almost
anything, including dead ani-
mals, and it seems like they're
always looking for opportuni-
ties, he said. When natural
foods are scarce or inaccessible,
hogs will forage on almost any
agricultural crop and livestock
feed. They will also feed on tree
seeds and seedlings, causing
significant damage in forests,
groves and plantations. In Flori-
da and the Southeast, this may
be a problem in regenerating
long-leaf pine forests.
In addition to the effects of
consuming, knocking down and
trampling large amounts of
native vegetation and crops, the
rooting behavior of wild hogs
causes significant damage, Giu-
liano said. Rooting digging for
foods below the surface of the
ground destabilizes the soil
surface, uprooting or weaken-
ing native vegetation, damaging
lawns and causing erosion.

"Wild hogs compete for food
with other game animals such
as deer, turkeys and squirrels,
and they may consume the nests
and young of many reptiles,

"Hunting is an important

Foster parents
desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
need of people willing to provide
foster children a normal family
life with nutritious meals, good
daily care and a stimulating envi-
ronment. Foster parents may be
married, divorced or single. Their
most important characteristic is
that they are caring individuals
who understand the problems
and needs of foster children.
