At their Thursday meeting,
the Okeechobee County Board
of County Commissioners
heard about Florida Power and
Light (FP&L) expansion plans,
discussed the Hurricane Hous-
ing Recovery Program and
made plans for the dedication of
the new courthouse.
Rachel Scott of FP&L dis
cussed her company's plans for
. i' *" ** i, of their power plants.

ating plants would be needed to
supply 355,000 customers.
Their plants now use natural
gas.
"We saw the need to diversi-
fy and we didn't want to put all
our eggs in one basket," Ms.
Scott said.
She said the company decid-
ed to use coal as a fuel for the
new plants since the cost of nat-
ural gas is increasing. She said
they looked at several sites,
including a site in Okeechobee
C.I., A, ,
Ms. Scott said the Okee-
chobee County site was rejected

Travel was an adventure


By MaryAnn Mormis
Let's go for a drive! Sounds
like fun, but whdn Peter and
Louisiana Raulerson, Okee-
chobee's first family, arrived in
Florida, it couldn't happen.
In 1896, when the Rauler-
sons came down from Basinger
to settle closer to Lake Okee-
chobee, there were no roads
and no railroads; just tracks in
the sand. Seminole footpaths,
trails made by animals going to
and from feeding and watering
places and a few old military
tracks, like Peavine Trail, guided
travelers.
Supplies came by boat either


down the Kissimmee River, up
the New River from Fort Laud-
erdale, or up the Caloosahatch-
ee River from Fort Myers and
across Lake Okeechobee.
These passenger/supply boats
brought cloth, flour, sugar, gun-
powder and shot and other,
necessities the pioneers could-
n't produce.
"Travel in those days had to
be made mostly by boat all
around the Lake as there were
no roads to speak of," said
Ralph Wadlow in his interview
with Carroll Wadlow in 1934.
There were no railroads, either.
It wasn't until 1914 that Henry
Flagler's East Coast Railroad


reached Okeechobee City. The

Atlantic Coast Line Railroad
came to Clewiston in 1921.
"To get to Belle Glade in
1921, my dad came from
Arkansas by train to Fort Laud-
erdale, then by boat up the New
River to Torrey and Kramer
Islands on Lake Okeechobee.
Then another boat brought him.
across the Lake to Belle Glade,"
said Jesse Motes, a Belle Glade
resident. "There weren't any
roads back then. Just tracks in
the sand where people drove."
But, in a true pioneer spirit,
by 1918, just one year after its

County's tax rolls boasted owner-
ship of 117 cars.
Almost as soon as there were
cars, there were automobile
clubs. The American Automobile
Association (AAA) traces its histo-
ry back to 1902, when there were
only 23,000 cars in the United
States compared to 17 million
horses, according to AAA statis-
tics.
A 1920 Florida State Automo-
bile Association map of Florida
roads show them as being,
"improved roads", "fair to good
roads", "poor to fair roads" or
"very poor" to "poor roads."
"Improved" did not necessarily
mean paved or shell rocked.
"We had just sand roads then
and you either bogged down in
the dry sand in the winter or
bogged down in the wet sand in
the winter. You got stuck either
way," recalled Basinger's Elda
Mae Bass.
"Some of the trails still have
long gaps where the going is
none too good especially in the

and the excessive cost to connect
- an Okeechobee County plant to
the FP&L transmission system. A
site in southwestern St. Lucie
County was picked.
However, the land must be
zoned and other procedures fol-
lowed before construction can
begin. Construction is scheduled
to begin in 2008.
She said 1,600 workers would
be needed during the five-year
construction phase. Once the
plant was completed, she said, 175
to 180 high-skill, high-wage jobs
would be created.
In an unrelated matter, Debbie
Belcher from Roumelis Planning
and Development Services, the
county's grant coordinator, pre-
sented the commissioners with a

proposed plan for administering
Hurricane Housing Recovery Pro-
gram (HHRP) funds.
"This a starting point for you to
think about," she said of the draft
plan.
The final plan has to be pre-
sented to the state by July 1. Ms.
Belcher predicted that the money
would be available a few weeks
after that date.
The HHRP funding is divided
into three allocations totaling
$7,143,463. There is a base alloca-
tion of $5,380.098 $1,076.202 is
earmarked for extremely low
incomes families and $717,346 is
set aside for community collabora-
tion. Of that community collabora-
tion amount, $382,000 has been
designated for Recovering Okee-
chobee After Disaster (ROAD).
"Basically, there is a lot of nieed
and some money," she said. "We
have to pick and choose and prior-

itize."
She suggested the program be
set up similar to SHIP.
She noted that the program
does not require that money be
spent on rental property. However,
the consensus of the commission-
ers was to keep the allocation for
rental units.
The proposed program would
include $880,622 for new rental
units.
Representatives from ROAD,
the City of Okeechobee and coun-
ty employees will be meeting to
iron out the details of the grant
administration plan. The finished
plan will be presented to the coun-
ty commissioners at a public hear-
ing at their June 20 meeting.
Turning to the new courthouse,
County Administrator George
Long noted that the telephone sys-
tem in the building is operational
and that they were waiting on fur-
niture. He said there was not much
to be moved from the old court-
house except for working materi-
al.
He noted that there was a lot of
interest in seeing the building.
A committee was formed con-
sisting of Commissioner Clif Betts,
Retired Circuit Judge William
Hendry, and representatives from
the sheriff's office, clerk of the
courts, public defender and state
attorney's offices.
This committee will plan an
open house and dedication cere-
mony for the facility. The date is yet
to be determined. Commission
Chairman John Abney asked
Judge Hendry to speak at the dedi-
cation.
Because of security concerns,
the open house and dedication
will be held just prior to the clerk of
the court moving her records to
the new building.
In other action, the board:
voted to make N.W. 120th
Ave, passable;
discussed the delay in secur-

on the railroad tracks too. Hence
the term "cow-catcher" for the
prow on the front of locomotives!
A 1920 account of a auto trip
from Fort Pierce to LaBelle
through "Okeechobee City" a
night-time drive to Palmdale
states: "We had some obstruc-
tions to progress in the form of
forks in the trail which would, we
knew, either come together far-
ther on or diverge indefinitely and
thus lead to some other part of the
state. At each fork, the four in our
party would hold a council, and in
each instance consult the stars."
This was one of many empty
areas on the Auto Association's
map."
This author, John Kunkel
Small, also describes the ferry
crossing of the Kissimmee River
west of town: "The trails on either
side of the river were connected
by a ferry which consisted of a
flatboat large enough to hold a
car, and a small motor boat of
barely sufficient capacity to drag
the flatboat around the bends and
over the sand bars in the river."
This did vary, depending on the
location.

barge across water. You would
drive your car up on to the barge

and there were mules were
hitched to ropes on either side
with a pulley. They'd pull your car
over on the barge, and then
they'd pull the barge back," said
Mr. Motes.
There weren't many repair
facilities in the '20s, but there
were "tourist camps" as Mr.
Motes recalled: "When we drove
back and forth between Alabama,
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."

4 OPINION The Okeechobee News, Sunday, June 12,2005


Speak Out

Exercise your right to free speech. Speak out is a free 24-
hour opinion line. Call and express your opinion or ask ques-
tion 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 submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla.
34973.
Be Aware
"I just want all the Okeechobee residents to know that if you
have so much as a limb or anything besides a normal garbage
can, you have to call and have a ticket written up on it limbs
or anything. I have been looking at mine for three months and I
just found out I had to call Waste Management and have a tick-
et made up on it so they would come out and get it. I think all
Okeechobee residents should be made aware of this since no
one seems to have received any kind of notice of this."

Building Official
"We would like a follow up on the building official that
assaulted a resident, that was a taxpaying resident. We would
like to find out what is going on with this with the county com-
missioners. We know the man is probably not going to file
. charges on this, he is not that type. But we would like to know
what is going on."
(Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. We contacted the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office and went over the reports by
the deputy that was dispatched to the scene. A portion of that
report states, and we quote: "There are no independent wit-
nesses that saw the fight begin therefore I cannot determine
who was the primary aggressor. Both parties have not been
very forthcoming in their version of the incident." The matter
was turned over to the state attorney. Shortly after this inci-
dent on March 18, the building inspector was terminated.
According to the county, "His termination was not based on
that incident, but was based on an escalated pattern of
behavior that included that incident. ")

Looking Back ...
While the dairies became an integral part of the Okeechobee economy in the 1970s, early Okeechobee residents had
their milk delivered from the area's single dairy. These dairy cows are part of the herd of the H.L. Chandler Dairy in 1918,
whose ads in the Okeechobee Call promised "pure milk, from a herd of pure bred Jerseys...delivered to your door
morning or evening." This photo also appeared in the 1993 book "Strolling Down Country Roads" by Twila Valentine and
Betty Chandler Williamson. Do you have any old photos of the Okeechobee area or of Okeechobee citizens? If so, bring
them by the Okeechobee News office, 107 S.W. 17th St., and we can copy them while you wait. Or, you can e-mail the
photo and information about the photo to okeenews@okeechobee.com.

OPINION






AGRICULTURE 5


The Okeechobee News, Sunday, June 12, 2005


Co-op promotes free credit reports


LAKE WORTH Farm Credit
of South Florida, an agricultural
credit association serving eight
counties in Southeast Florida,
urges their member-borrowers
and all Florida agriculturalists to
take advantage of a law that
requires major credit reporting
services to provide free credit
reports.
The amendment to the Fair
Credit Reporting Act was
designed to provide consumers
who cannot or will not pay a fee
for the reports to access them for
free once a year. The law has
been phased-in across the United
States, and Florida residents were
eligible for the documents as of
June 1.


"Knowing what information is
in your credit report is a vital tool
in ensuring good personal finan-
cial health," said Don Rice, CEO
of the South Florida Cooperative.
"We know that many people are
unfamiliar with their personal
credit history, report and score;
however, there is no reason to be
intimidated by the information or
the process. It is an excellent iden-
tity theft tool, and I urge everyone
to obtain this information."
A credit report contains infor-
mation about a consumer's credit
history, including a listing of all
credit cards, whether bills have
been paid on .time, and whether
the consumer has been sued,
arrested or filed for bankruptcy.


National consumer reporting
agencies sell the information to
credit card companies and other
creditors, insurers, employers and
other businesses that use it to
determine whether to approve an
application for credit, insurance,
loans, and employment. A poor
credit history can result in rejec-
tion of credit or higher interest
rates on a loan.
Consumers can challenge and
change incorrect information on
the reports. The three major cred-
it reporting agencies are Equifax,
Experian and TransUnion.
To obtain a free copy of reports
from these agencies, log onto
www.FarmCreditSFl.com and
click on the FreeAnnualCreditRe-


port button.
People should be wary of any
sites which claim to offer free
reports but steer consumers to
sites that
offer services by subscription
for a fee. Consumers can also
order their reports by calling toll-
free 1 (877) 322-8228.
Farm Credit of South Florida
has over t billion in outstanding
loans to businesses and individu-
als directly involved with agricul-
tural products or services in the
South Florida area. For more
information about the coopera-
tive, visit www.FarmCreditS-
FLcom or contact Lyn Cacella at

cella@FarmCreditSFLcom.

Seminar to be offered on buyout options


Florida Farm Bureau Federa-
tion is partnering with the Florida
Farm Bureau Insurance compa-
nies, the Florida Tobacco Grow-
ers Association and Farm Bureau
Bank to inform tobacco growers
and quota holders about buyout
options at a seminar on Thurs-
day, June 23. The seminar will
begin at 6 p.m. at Cheryl's
Restaurant in Live Oak.
"Florida Farm Bureau is proud
of its role in achieving a tobacco
quota buyout," said Kevin Mor-
gan, director of the Agricultural
Policy Division. "The buyout is
now a reality and will benefit our


growers and the communities
where they live and work."
Now that the buyout is a reali-
ty, Florida Farm Bureau is con-
centrating on providing growers
and quota owners with informa-
tion about options that will maxi-
mize profitability and minimize
tax burdens. At the June 23 semi-
nar, Larry Lanie, president of
Farm Bureau Bank, will discuss
options, including lump-sum set-
tlements. The financial service is
being made available to all
tobacco growers and allotment
holders. The Farm Bureau Bank
settlement plan will allow buyout


recipients to be paid for the full
amount of their buyout proceeds
through a single transaction, less
the cost to the bank of financing
the. upfront payment. Also at the
seminar, a tax specialist will be
available to answer questions.
There is no registration
charge for the seminar, but regis-
tration is required by June 10.
Seating is limited. To register,
growers and quota holders
should contact Patti Brothers at
(352) 374-1544. Each registrant
should provide his/her name,
mailing address, phone and e-
mail address if available, and


indicate the total number of indi-
viduals attending from his/her
operation.
Farm Bureau is offering the
financial settlement through
Farm Bureau Bank as a service to
tobacco growers and allotment
holders. The Florida Farm
Bureau Federation will not
receive any compensation from
the plan.
"We are working to ensure
that, as a result of competition in
the marketplace, farmers will
receive the highest return possi-
ble for their buyout payments,"
Morgan said.

Meth labs declared a "terrorist threat"


TALLAHASSEE Declaring
meth labs a domestic terrorist
threat to Florida's first respon-
ders and citizens, Florida's Chief
Financial Officer and State Fire
Marshal Tom Gallagher has
announced initiatives to protect
Florida's law enforcement offi-
cers, firefighters and emergency
response personnel from the
dangers they face when making
arrests or investigating fires and
explosions at illegal metham-
phetamine labs.
"The criminals who make
meth are the equivalent to the
makers of any terrorist bomb
anywhere in the world. These
labs are a threat to the lives of
first responders as they try to
keep us safe and win the war on
drugs," Gallagher said.
"Methamphetamine addiction is
a high-level threat to our com-
munities, tearing apart families
and destroying lives."
Gallagher is joining forces
with Commissioner Guy Tun-
nell, director of the Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment, to promote specialized
training on meth labs to fight
back against a disturbing and
rapidly rising trend. A recent sur-
vey by the Drug Enforcement
Administration found that the
number of meth labs found in
Florida jumped from 28 in 2001
to 332 in 2004.
"These clandestine laborato-
ries are a threat to the environ-
ment, a hazard to our communi-
ties, and a danger to the officers
who seize them," said FDLE
Commissioner Tunnell. "This
integrated training effort is
another important step in Flori-
da's fight against meth."
"Our law enforcement offi-
cers and firefighters face risks
every time they respond to a
call," Gallagher said. "But meth
labs are an especially insidious
risk because they are concealed
in homes, sheds, motel rooms
and even vehicles. Our first
responders have no warning
they are entering into a poten-
tially fatal situation."
Detectives with the Bureau of
Fire and Arson Investigations, a
law enforcement branch of the
State Fire Marshal's Office,
recently responded to a meth
lab near Fort Walton Beach that
was booby-trapped with more
than two dozen wired pipe
bombs. The lab operator had
installed escape doors leading
out to nearby woods so he could
leave to detonate the bombs.
Mobile meth labs built into truck
beds and car trunks also are a
threat. The chemicals used to
make meth are highly flamma-
ble accelerants that can explode
and turn a small fire into an
inferno in an-instant. The State
Fire Marshal's Office has
responded to fires and explo-
sions at 29 meth labs in the last
three yeais.
As a' result of these experi-
ences, the State Fire Marshal's
Office is providing free training
for first responders later this
month on how to identify, inves-
tigate and dismantle labs used to
manufacture methampheta-
mine.
Methamphetamine is manu-
factured using common house-
hold products, particularly over-
the-counter cold medicines
containing ephedrine. The Leg-
islature passed a measure this
year, sponsored by Representa-
tive Greg Evers and Senator Dur-
rell Peaden, restricting the sale
of over-the-counter products
containing ephedrine or pseu-
doephedrine. The legislation
also provides minimum manda-
tory sentences for those w,
expose children to the hazards
of a meth lab, adds new penal-
ties for meth lab operators who
injure law enforcement officers
responding to labs, and
enhances safety guidelines for
the storage and transportation of
anhydrous ammonia, another
chemical commonly used in the
manufacture of meth.
"This legislation will help get
to the root of the escalating
meth crisis by restricting access
to the main ingredient used to
make meth ephedrine," Evers
said.
Gallagher applauded the Leg-
islature for these strong meas-
ures and said he would ask next
year that lawmakers extend
criminal penalties for injuries to
firefighters and other response
personnel incurred while
responding to emergencies


involving meth labs.
Methamphetamine produces
a more potent and longer-lasting
high than crack cocaine, and the
manufacture, distribution and
use of methamphetamine is on
the. rise throughout Florida.
According to FDLE statistics, the
greatest concentrations of meth
labs are found in the Panhandle
and Central Florida.
"Our office has been involved
in more than 150 lab busts and
arrested more than 1,500 indi-
viduals involved in meth produc-


"The criminals who make meth are the equiva-
lent to the makers of any terrorist bomb any-
where in the world."


tion, distribution and use," said
Holmes County Deputy Sheriff
Eddie Ingram. "We have learned
that aggressive education and
training efforts are critical to pro-
tecting those on the front line in
shutting down these labs."
Exact figures on first respon-
der injuries and deaths are hard
to collect but according to
recent reports from the Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC), injuries and deaths
for first responders dealing with
clandestine meth labs are on the
rise. Methamphetamine-related
events recorded by the Haz-
ardous Substances Emergency
Events Surveillance (HSEES)
system increased from 184 in
2000 to 320 in June, 2004, total-
ing 1,791 events in the 16 states,
including Florida. These events
resulted in almost 960 injuries to
police officers, firefighters and
other first-responders.. The most
frequent injuries were respirato-
ry irritation, eye irritation, and
burns, but nine deaths were also
reported. The DEA reported
more than 13,000 seizures of
meth lab and meth lab materials
in 2003 alone.
The training being offered in
Florida is a model for the rest of
the nation. More than 150 offi-
cers and firefighters from
throughout Florida and from
other states, including New York
and Illinois, have signed up for
the training courses June 21-23


and June 28-30 at the Florida
State Fire College in Ocala.
Instructors will be provided by
the Multi-Jurisdictional Counter
Drug Task Force -a partnership
between the Florida National
Guard and St. Petersburg Col-
lege. The training will cover
numerous topics from the types
of laboratory operations, to evi-
dence collection.
Also joining Gallagher at the


press conference in support of
the new initiatives were
Colonel Chris Knight, Florida
Highway Patrol; Fire Chief Les
Hallman, South Walton Fire
District; Assistant Fire Chief
Gary Jordan, North Bay Fire
District, and Mark Cutcliffe, Res-
ident Agent-in-Charge, Drug
Enforcement Administration.
Other organizations supporting
Gallagher's efforts include the
Florida Professional Firefighters
Association, Florida Fire Chiefs
Association, Florida Fire Mar-
shals and Inspectors Associa-
tion, and the Florida Sheriff's
Association.
