In Brief

Boll water notice
Because of a broken
water line, the Okeechobee
Utility Authority (OUA) has
issued a boil water notice for
the area bounded on the
south by S.R. 70, on the east
by the CXS railroad, on the
west by U. S. 98 and on the
north by N.W. 36th Street.
This boil water notice is
dated June 17 and is effective
for a minimum of 48 hours.
As a precaution, OUA advises
that all drinking or cooking
water be boiled. The utility
states that a rolling boil for
one minute is sufficient. This
notice was not received by
the Okeechobee News until
after the June 17 issue was
already on the streets. The
utility apologizes for any
inconvenience and thanks
customers for their under-
standing cooperation.

50t Plus tax


High water bad for big lake


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee Estuaries and
Lake Worth Lagoon met at the
Okeechobee Courthouse Thurs-
day morning and heard several
presentations on the state of Lake
Okeechobee. However, they
could not conduct any business
for lack of a quorum since only
four of the nine members were


r' '.*, ., 'l "* ", ''; '-'


present. Membership is made up
one commissioner from each of
the counties in the coalition -
Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin,
Lee, Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades,
Highlands, and Osceola.
In attendance were Okee-
chobee County Commissioner Clif
Betts, Martin County Commission-
er Sarah Heard, Lee County Com-
missioner Ray Judah, the chair-
man and Osceola County
Commissioner Ken Smith.
Commissioner Betts informed
the other coalition members that


one of the concerns of Okee-
chobee County is that the lake
level is over 15 feet. He said there
were also concerns about turbidi-
ty and how it affects the quality of
the water and sport fishing. He
noted that we are entering the hur-
ricane season and a high lake level
could mean trouble for both
coasts.
Commissioner Heard
expressed concern about the
detrimental effects to the St. Lucie
Canal of pulse releases from Lake
Okeechobee. She voiced concern


Legion disposes of old flags


that the situation would get worse.
The commissioner stated that her
support of stormwater treatment
areas and other options that
would decrease the need for pulse
releases.
Commissioner Smith proudly
announced that Osceola County
had recently passed a one-half mill
ad valorem tax to pay for lands for
environmental purposes, such as
storing water. He said the program
would start next year using bond
money. A committee would make
recommendations to the commis-


sioners as to what property to buy.
Commissioner Judah
expressed his concern over the
condition of the Caloosahatchee
River caused by pulse releases. He
was in favor of other options to
lower the water level in the lake
such as the use of forward pumps.
Noting Commissioner Betts'
concern, Dr. Susan Gray of South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) noted there was a
recent improvement in water

A 60-year-old pedestrian
died after being struck by a car
Thursday evening on Parrott
Avenue near the Brahman
Movie Theater.
According to the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office
report, the man apparently fell
into the oncoming traffic.
Shannon Tewksbury, 20,
was driving northbound on
Parrott Avenue (U.S. Highway
441) around 10:30 p.m. when
60-year-old Arthur Webb

American Legion Post 64 conducted flag disposal ceremonies on Thursday, cremating
tattered, faded unserviceable flags. The flags were collected throughout the year by the
Legion and stored until the ceremony. Anyone who has an American flag that is faded,
torn or otherwise no longer serviceable can take it to the American Legion.

Ceremony retires flags with honor


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
Members of the American
Legion Post 64 said goodbye to
scores of American flags Thurs-
day night at their annual flag-
burning ceremony.
Commander Charlie Hart
officiated at the event, with
assistance from Legion mem-
bers and by local Boy Scouts
and Scout leaders.
The Scouts got together last
week and learned how to prop-
erly fold the flags in preparation
for the ceremony.
About a dozen Legionnaires
attended, some helping with
the ceremony and others
observing. Almost as many
members of the public were in
attendance.
Four Legionnaires served as
the Color Guard and presented
arms. The Chaplain said a
prayer and asked God to bless


Ponitac Grand Am struck Mr.
Webb. He died at the scene.
Neither Ms. Tewksbury nor
the 13-year-old passenger in
her vehicle was injured in the
accident, the report indicates.
According to Deputy Sheriff
Brain Hagan with the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office,
speed was not a factor in the
crash.
Okeechobee County Fire
Rescue pronounced Mr. Webb
dead at the scene.
According to the Sheriff's
Office, no further information
can be released at this time.

quality, although she said total
phosphorous concentrations are
still double what they were before
the hurricanes.
Dr. Gray expressed concern that
the lake had risen one and one half
foot in the last couple of weeks and
said that the mode of SFWMD at
this time is flood management. The
rapid rise of the lake is one of the
major problems in management
the lake, she added.
She said that prior to the hurri-
canes there was a large amount of
submerged vegetation in the lake.
Since then, at the spots they have
checked, there is almost no sub-
merged vegetation, a fact that caus-
es "great concern": to the district.
She mentioned the need for treat-
ment and storage areas north of the
lake. She also mentioned perma-
nent forward pumps to help regu-
late the lake.
"No tool is being taken off the
list."
She said that the district needs to
look at every water control tool and
evaluate the pros and cons and the
costs involved.
"Everything is up for considera-
tion," she added.
Dr. Gray also mentioned the
importance of communication and
told the commissioners" "If you
need us we will be there." She
pledged to send district representa-
tives to commissioners' meetings if
necessary.
.Commissioner Smith asked
about hydrilla control.
Bob Howard, director of opera-
tions for SFWMD, replied that
hydrilla develops resistance quicker
- than we can develop chemicals. He
said it takes constant research and
development to stay ahead of the


plant.
"Right now the said the situation
was not very optimistic."
There was also a discussion of
using grass carp to control hydrilla.
Benita Whalen, director of
SFWMD's Okeechobee office, dis-
cussed storage of water on public,
-* private and tribal lands on the north
end of the lake. The private and trib-
al lands are primarily agricultural
* and would be used to store water
before it reaches the lake to lessen
the need for pulse releases.
She noted that the experiences
of the recent drawdown of Lake
-. Tohopelaliga support the concept
.-. of water storage. She said SFWMD
tries to identify public lands first.
Then private lands used previously
^. .. would be considered and potential
storage sites ranked. However, she
noted that in wet times, like the
present, land owners cannot take
on any more water.


She said that completed surface
water treatment projects (STAs)
total 79,326-acre feet with addition-
al 92,000-acre feet to be construct-
ed.
Turning to another storage strat-
egy, Ms. Whalen said the World
Wildlife Fund has been working
with landowners to locate storage
areas. Some of the programs the
federation is using include wetland
hydration, wetland creation and
reservoirs. She noted that the feder-
ation has started six pilot projects in
the Okeechobee watershed.
Commissioner Heard advocat-
ed storing water now to keep from
having to discharge water through
the estuaries. She asked what is
being done right now.
Ms. Whalen pledged that the
district would do what it could in
the short term.
"We will be looking at any site
now.
Ms. Whalen noted that STAs are
really designed for flow through
water treatment. Although there is
some storage, she said they are
more for water quality than storage.
However, she said SFWMD would
try to keep the optimum depth in
the STAs.
Chip Merrian, deputy executive
director of SFWMD, discussed for-
ward pumps. He said their use
would be beneficial to the health of
lake and there is no downside to
their u se. In the short term, tempo-
rary pumps would be used, but he
said the district is seeking additional
dollars for permanent forward
pumps.
Mr. Merrian also echoed Ms.
Whalen's statements that noted
that there is no storage today
because private landowners are
already waterlogged from recent
rains. .He said that Lykes Brothers,
an organization that took a lot the
water last year, is tired of receiving
constant telephone calls from
them.
Ginger Baldwin of Senator
Pruitt's office stated that the senator
has sponsored funding for lake
restoration projects. She urged that
the assembled commissioners talk
to their legislative delegations as to
the importance of forward pump-
ing for environmental concerns.
Paul Gray of the Audubon Soci-
ety said that the use forward pumps
might be good. He added that a
chronically low lake and as well as
a chronically high lake both cause
concern. Mr. Gray said his dream
was that water managers would be
able to keep the lake at 15 feet or
lower, He said this would eliminate
the need for large pulse releases.
Peter Kwiatkowski, project engi-
neer for the district, discussed sup-
ply side management or policies to
put in place when the water drops
below a certain level. He said tech-
nical analysis and public input is


needed to formulate a policy on
supply side management.
He added that seed money was
needed to initiate contracts until the
next fiscal year's budget kicks in.
Wayne Daltry of Lee County said
that 80 percent of the water in the
western basin does not come from
Lake Okeechobee but from Lee
County's stormwater system.
"We need a coherent manage-
ment program." He asserted.
He called for a coherent man-
agement plan in cooperation with
Glades, Hendry and Lee Counties
that would bring all viewpoints
together. Currently, he said there is
no coherent plan.
Part to the problem, according
to Mr. Daltry, is that Lee County tax
dollars form the bulk of the basin
water management program
because Glades and Hendry Coun-
ties do not have the tax base that
Lee does. He advocated relooking
at management paradigms.
Mr. Daltry called for more water
storage rather than using what he
called a "fire hose" approach to
funnel excess lake water through
the estuaries.
Mr. Daltry also mentioned the
pesticide problem that comes from
the Caloosahatchee Basin and not
from Lake Okeechobee or the
Kissimmee River.
Don Fox of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
gave an overview of the process of
regulating lake levels. He recom-
mended that the water level fluctu-
ate 12 to 15 feet over a 36-month
period, with the water receding
November through June, water lev-
els stable June through August and
October being the peak month He
said that the problem with Caloosa-
hatchee is that sometimes there is
too much fresh water and some-
times not enough freshwater.
Mark Perry of Florida Oceano-
graphic advocated managing the
lake at a lower level. In addition, he
suggested looking at forward
pumps He said lake management
was not only an environmental
problem, but also an economic
problem affecting propertyvalues.
"We need to get the discharges
stopped," he asserted.
Susan Sylvester of the U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers attributed the
recent rise in lake level to rainfall
and inflow from Fisheating Creek.
She said the Kissimmee chain of
lakes were low before the recent
rainy spell so they did not con-
tribute to the rise in the lake level.
Ms. Sylvester said that this is a chal-
lenging-wet season and that releas-
es will have to be made.
After the meeting, coalition
members and members of the
audience were given a tour of the
new courthouse by County
employee Donnie Oden.

legislator
On June 25, 2005, Senator Ken
Pruitt will receive an award from
the Florida Wildlife Federation for
his outstanding efforts to protect
and restore Lake Okeechobee.
Recognizing that poorly con-
trolled phosphorus in storm water
from its watershed is the greatest
threat to the ecological sustainabili-
ty of Lake Okeechobee, Senator
Pruitt has consistently worked to
solve this problem beginning with
the Lake Okeechobee Protection
Act of 2000. The Act required the
South Florida Water Management
District, the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, and the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services to design a
phosphorus reduction plan and
implement it. Since then, Senator
Pruitt has worked successfully to
fund this program. Thanks to him,
$30 million was approved by the
Florida Legislature this year for
Lake Okeechobee restoration.
Senator Pruitt will receive his
"Conservation Legislator of the
Year" award from the Florida
Wildlife Federation on June 25,
2005, at the Federation's Annual
Conservation Awards Banquet, to
be held at the Hutchinson Island
Marriott Beach Resort in the city of
Stuart in his home district. Senator
Pruitt's district includes Martin, and
parts of Indian River, Okeechobee,


of the year
Palm Beach and St. Lucie counties.
Senator Ken Pruitt has consis-
tently worked to correct Lake
Okeechobee's depth management
problem by funding the construc-
tion of pumps to take water out of
the lake from a lower elevation
than present gravity flow structures
allow. His efforts have made a great
difference in the ongoing battle to
save Lake Okeechobee. Senator
Pruitt himself said, "The federal
and state governments have recog-
nized the need to preserve the
future of our lake. We suddenly
realized that she is an economic
lifeline of the region and the
ecosystem lifeblood for South
Florida. Inevitably, where we fail
with Lake Okeechobee restora-
tion, we fail exponentially with the
Everglades restoration."
Anyone interested in attending
the Florida Wildlife Federation's
Annual Conservation Awards Ban-
quet on Saturday evening, June 25,
may contact Diane Hines or Kelly
Stewart at the Florida Wildlife Fed-
eration's Tallahassee office by call-
ing: 1-(800)656-3014. The banquet
begins at 6 p.m. with a reception
followed by dinner at 7 p.m. and
the Conservation Awards presenta-
tion. Seventeen other deserving
conservationists and conservation-
minded groups will be receiving
awards that evening.

OUA
George Long is right; OUA has no credibility in this community -
with the high priced water that is not fit to drink, failure to adequately
notify our community to boil the water and now the sewage fiasco.
Okeechobee is growing rapidly; we need to change to keep up with this
growth. OUA needs new leadership that is proactive.
Parades
I feel it's a sad day when you think there are too many parades.
Parades are a wonderful thing, especially to a child. If you don't like them,
stay home.
Small Town
I like the parades in Okeechobee, but then again I am not from up
north where they don't do those kinds of things. If you don't like the
parades stay home the day they are having it. As for the traffic, it is always
a bad time to go to town because of the construction that they can't seem
to get right. So, it is not the parades, it is everything else! I look forward to
when my son gets big enough to take him to the Speckled Perch Parade
and the Labor Day Parade and whatever other ones they have. When we
were in school all of my friends would look forward to when the parade
came just so we could ride our horses in them and we always had a good

concerning their building pro-
gram. The good news is that they
do not owe any money on their
partially completed sanctuary.
The bad news is that they do not


have any more money to contin-
ue construction.
Before construction began,
Shirleen Graham-Stevens, a
trustee of the church, stated that
the church had enough money
to complete the building. How-
e'er, with the coming the hurri-
canes, the cost of building mate-
rials has increased significantly.


.7.


While the exterior of First Missionary Baptist Church of
Dean's Court's new building is completed, the inside is unfin-
ished and unfurnished because of a lack of funds caused by
increased prices of materials brought on-by the hurricanes.


The exterior of the church has
been completed. However,
according to Ms. Graham-
Stevens, the church needs an
additional $173,000 to furnish
the inside of the building. They
need such things as pews, pulpit
furniture and interior doors.
Construction began last sum-
mer. About two weeks ago, con-


struction stopped because of
lack of funds. However, there is
nothing owed on what has been
done. The church is soliciting
contributions from the public.
Donations can be made to First
Missionary Baptist Church of
Dean's Court, P. 0. 2400, Okee-
chobee, FL 34974.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Elma J. Hampton, pastor
of Gospel Lighthouse
- Three days of remembrance
that come close together, Memori-
l Day, Father's Day and the Fourth
of July, all speak of men. What a
golden opportunity for my mes-
sage this week.
"The Lord God formed
man..." (Genesis 2:7) This first
human to be created was a man,
perfect in every way and worthy tq
be in command of all living things.
Somewhere along the line, he got
dilatory. When Eve offered the for-
bidden fruit for him to eat, he did-
'n't step up to the plate and refuse
to eat it nor did he forbid her to eat
it. .Remember, Adam got his
instructions from God and Eve did
not. Man's first failure as the head
under God was in, the garden.
From that first man, we learn that
leadership is not always so easy
thus the buck-passing.
'And I sought f a man among
them, that. should make up the
hedge, and stand in the gap before
me for the land, that I should not
destroy it..." (Ezekiel 22:30) In the
day Ezekiel preached you will find
as dark a picture as you will find
anywhere, except today. It was a
day of uncleanliness, a time when
anything goes. The priests, as well
as the rest of the nation, had
counted God's Word to .no effect.
In was a day of spiritual decay and
death. Ezekiel's day was also a day
of dishonesty and compromise.
Looking to our day, what hap-
pened to honoring one's word or
sealing a deal with a handshake?
What could describe the age in
which we live better than the.
word compromise unless it would
be the word complacency? There
is so much unconcern, thus the
common expression, "well, so
what?"
However, in the midst of it,
God speaks and says, "I sought for
a man among them..." What God
was saying is I need a man to
stand up for the right: How sad
that one could not be found.
David told his son Solomon,
"Be strong, and of good courage,
dread not, nor be dismayed." He
also told Solomon to "Shew thy-
self to be a man." In other words,
sometimes it isn't easy to do the
right but that is the way for God,
nothing else will do.
All through the Bible God looks
for a man. In another dark hour he
found a man by the name of
Gideon, maybe not a very likely
prospect for leadership. But when
God called, "Hey thou, thou
mighty man of valor" Gideon
came out of hiding. With God's
leadership, Gideon and three hun-
dred other faithful men con-
quered the enemy. God had found
a man.
God was looking for a when he
choose Daniel, a man of ieal con-


victions. Daniel had purposed in
his heart that he would not defile
himself with the portion of the
king's meat. Yes, Daniel purposed
in his heart that he would stand no
matter what it cost him saying, "I
belong to God and I will not defile
myself."
Joseph was also such a man, a
man who held to his convictions
and would not give in to the lust of
the flesh. God had found a man to
save Israel.
When you talk about a man
with convictions, a mind set, real
backbone, you are talking about
Brother Paul. He told the church at
Philippi,"This one thing I do, for-
getting those things behind ...I
press toward the mark for the
prize..."
God ;s looking for men of con-
victions. God may take a coward
and make him brave. He may take
a cripple and him strong, He many
even take an illiterate and make
him wise but God never uses a
man without real conviction.
Thus is not a day for fence
straddlers. The battle lines are
drawn. Get on one side or the
other. There is no such thing as
being neutral. That is a big joke.
There is a story that comes out
of civil war days. A man wanted to
be neutral. So, he wore the coat of
one side and the trousers of the
other side. One day on the battle
field, both sides shot him.
On this Fathers Day let me
remind you of one great father by
the name of Joshua. He made this
statement: "As for me and my
house we will serve the Lord."
There was no question about it.
Joshua set the example and led
the way. Modern day fathers, you
should do the same, for you are
the link between God and the
family.
"And ye fathers... being them
up in the nurture and admonition
of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:4)
How? By setting an example in
prayers, Bible reading, tithing, and
keeping yourself pure. Do not be
mastered by sport, televisions,
sex, money or drugs. The women,
the children, your country, your
church and most importantly
God, is saying, "Men take your
rightful place. We need you!"
"...perilous times shall come."
(II Timothy 3:1)One of the signs
will be disobedience to parents.
You may say that sure is the truth.
But who are their parents? A good
portion don't know or they don't
live in the kind of family unit as
was set up by God: that's a father,
a mother and children, Many par-
ents don't know where the chil-
dren are and the children don't
know where the parents are.
Is there a solution? You may
not like the answer but it is only in
God. Has America gone too far to
be saved? Maybe as a country but
Sthe family unit, starting at the head
(man), must come first. Your were


created in the image of God not
Fido. Men, lose that animal nature
and be human, seek after the
nature of God, recognize that you
need God to be foremost in your
life and you need God as your
head. Start now to seek His face.
Once again, I want to emphasize,
men, we need you.
I give great honor to those pro-
tecting us in our armed forces, to
the men who have been faithful to
their place in life, to the real prom-
ise keepers. Our prayers are with
you.
"Quit you like meh, be strong.
(I Corinthians 16:13)

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Grist Mill
Modeled on a grist mill built in 1797 in Tennessee,
this fun and easy do-it-yourself project can be used
to decorate even the smallest garden or patio. Its fea-
tures include a working water wheel and authentic
touches like stairs, a door and windows.
Most of the mill's pieces are traced from full-size
patterns, so sizing them is a simple matter of trans-
ferring the patterns to wood. The completed project
measures 48 in. long by 25 in. wide by 35 in. tall.

Grist Mill plan (No. 456). .. $9.95
Water Wheels Package (No. C140)
Two projects incl. 456 ... $16.95

Please add $3.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)
