By Audrey Blackwell
Nearly every community in
the United States has a problem
with drug use, and Okeechobee
is no different.
Similarly, facilities exist in
Okeechobee to help those
addicted to alcohol and/or drugs.
Since 1998, Breakthrough
Recovery Services at 202 N.W.
Fifth Ave. has been helping sub-
stance abusers and domestic vio-
lence offenders as well.
Breakthrough Recovery is
one of three licensed outpatient
facilities who counsel abusers
and offenders in Okeechobee.
The other two licensed facilities
are New Horizons and Innova-
tive Treatment Services. In addi-
tion, several faith-based agencies
in Okeechobee serve the same
purpose.
Enrico Lamberti, executive
director of Breakthrough Recov-
ery Services, said their program
also helps people in other nearby
communities-two in Indian
River County and one in St. Lucie
County. About 225 clients are
served in each of the four sites at
any given time.
,The program at Breakthrough
Recovery is described in a com-
pany flyer as a comprehensive
prevention, intervention, and
treatment agency specializing in


clinical care of substance abuse
issues. They are licensed by the
State of Florida Department of
Children and Families. Their pro-
grams are based on the philoso-
phy that substance abuse is a
learned behavior that can be cor-
rected by challenging the belief
systems that have given permis-
sion for the anti-social behaviors.
They support the practice of fam-
ily treatment and involvement in
the treatment process and advise
participation in self-help fellow-
ships to aid in the aftercare of
their clients.
Mr. Lamberti and two other
counselors comprise the full-
time staff. Chuck Harney is clini-
cal director and supervises the
therapists, and Steve Condit is a
senior counselor. Other staff
members -- include Juan
Rodriquez, part-time counselor;
Elizabeth Coreas, Spanish inter-
preter; Viki Lamberti, office man-
ager; and Anita Vaughn, recep-
tionist.
Mr. Lamberti said he has seen
a reduction in the number of first
time abusers of alcohol and
drugs. The results of a statewide
survey on alcohol and drug pre-
vention is sent to all students to
determine first-time users, and
the results of the survey shows a
decrease in first-time users, Mr.
Lamberti said. He said it is a


national survey has been used
for three years. He attributes the
reduction to promotions carried
on CLEAR radio and television
that stress family as the anti-drug.
While prevention is one thing,
the treatment side is totally differ-
ent, according to Mr. Lamberti.
"You're not going to be helped by
an ad campaign," he said. And
that is where therapeutic pro-
grams like the one at Break-
through Recovery comes in-to
help those who need to break
the addiction.
While some people come
into the center as self-referrals,
and a few enter by way of inter-
vention requests from family
members and loved ones, most
of their clients are referred by the
court system. "Eighty percent
come to us through the courts as
either misdemeanor referrals or
felonies," Mr. Lamberti said.
Whether a charge is a misde-
meanor or a felony depends on
the level of the offense, he
explained. Therapeutic treat-
ment is ordered by a judge, either
Judge Shirley Brennan for misde-
meanors or Sherwood "Chip"
Bower for felonies.
Those who require in-patient
treatment or detoxification are
seen by medical professionals,

Pioneers drained wetlands,


changing lake area forever


By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
The words of history are spo-
ken by people. Whenever possi-
ble, listen.
The history of Clewiston and
the Lake Okeechobee area
begins with the first prehistoric
people to inhabit the area. But
gradually people came from
across the oceans in search of
new worlds. It had been suggest-
ed by scholars that the earth was
round and that theory had to be
tested. i
Orange trees, hogs and cattle
were brought to Florida by early
European explorers. But perma-
nent settlement by European,
African and the Caribbean Island
emigrants came gradually. Peo-
ple drifted south, down from the
Northern areas, looking for a bet-

ter life. Some who came across
the Atlantic stayed. Settlements
grew near the old U. S. Army
Forts Basinger, Pierce, Laud-
erdale and others. Until the
invention of the steam-driven
boat in 1807 by Robert Fulton,
most of Florida remained a mys-
tery.
But with the ease of steam
navigation along Florida's wind-


ing rivers the interior became
accessible to people from the
north. Although there were set-
tlers on the banks of the Kissim-
mee River in the 1860s and
1870s, much of the area around
Lake Okeechobee waited.
Cow hunters, descended
mainly from Scottish and Irish
emigrants who had settled in
Georgia and the Carolinas found
a good living in Central Florida in
the mid-1800s. These cattlemen
came from the cattle herding cul-
ture in the British Isles, so it was
second nature to round up the
wild cattle on the prairies of cen-
tral Florida with herd dogs like
the Scottish border Collies and
drive them across the state to the
port of Punta Rassa on the Gulf
Coast. The dense palmetto and

The Bolles Hotel, where Mrs. George's party stayed when they
first came to Lake Okeechobee was built where the Miami
Canal met Lake Okeechobee by land developer Richard J.
Bolles to house prospective Everglades land buyers. It burned
down in 1929.

thick woods of Central Florida
were nothing like the open prairie
of the American West. Both brand-
ing and earmarking of livestock
have their roots in Celtic culture.
Florida asked Congress for the
land south of the Caloosahatchee
River, north of Lake Okeechobee,
from the Gulf of Mexico to the
Atlantic Ocean around 1847. Con-
gress realized that the long coast of
Florida was a threat to national
security and the shipping trade and
granted the State's request in 1848,
on the condition that the land be
"reclaimed by drainage."
1855, the state legislature
passed the Internal Improvement
Act. A report to the trustees of the
fund stated "drainage of the
immense territory embraced in the
Kissimmee Valley, Okeechobee
Lake and Caloosahatchie Valley
had for at least a generation been
the theme of discussion by emi-
nent engineers educated in the
principles of Hydraulics." Florida
was $5 million in debt, 'having
backed railroad projects that had
been disrupted by the Civil War.
Hamilton Disston, a young man
from Philadelphia had inherited a
fortune from his father. His father
manufactured saws. Mr. Disston
bought the land, over one million
acres, from the state on January of
1881. The State, though, needed
cash to clean up and title these
lands. To help the state, Mr. Disston
was persuaded to buy four million
more acres of land at 25 cents an
acre in June of 1881. The deal
made him the largest landowner in
the United States.

at Cedar Key. Steam-powered, she
came down the Gulf coast to Char-
lotte Harbor and up the Caloosa-
hatchee River. The Caloosahatchee
was cleared out, and on the other
side of the Lake, the Kissimmee
River was cleared to 50 feet wide
and 8 feet deep and fallen trees
were removed from the channel.
By 1882, there was a 350 mile con-
tinuous waterway from city of
Kissimmee to the Gulf of Mexico
and the Lake Okeechobee area
was open to steam boats.
Ranchers then dug smaller
channels to link up with Disston's
canal system, draining their marsh-
es for pastureland in the process.
More channels were dug from the
south shore of the Lake and for the
first time, more water flowed out of
the Lake than in it. As a result,
groundwater levels dropped
sharply.
Mr. Disston purchased half
interest in a sugar plantation in
1887. It paid off and he expanded.


In addition, his land companies
promoted prices starting at $1.25
an acre (five times the 25 cents an
acre he paid in 1881) for farming
throughout this country and
Europe. If not for Mr. Disston's
.vision, much of central Florida
would be more suitable today for
mosquitoes than people and cattle.
Word of Mr. Disston's success-
ful sugar mill and plantation caught
the ear of Tampa banker Alonzo C.
Clewis. Son of a Georgia plantation
owner, he came to Tampa in 1888
to work for Hillsboro Loan and

closer to the northern shores of the
Lake in 1896.
You had to like adventure! What
we are really talking about here is
best explained by Mrs. M.F. George,
who left Palm Beach on July 27,
1915 with her husband, five other

men, four women and two young
boys for the Everglades and Lake
Okeechobee. She turned the
account of her experiences into an
article, published in 1917. These
are sturdy people.
She wrote: "We had great air-
castles built as to what we were
going to do and the outing we
were going to have. All kinds of
scary tales had been told us about
the dangers of wild animals,
whirlpools in the New River and
the great Lake Okeechobee, which
was supposed to have a muck bot-
tom and should your boat upset
in one of the much-talked-of sud-
den storms, you would sink out of
sight and keep on going as though
you were in quicksand with no
chance of rescue."
After five and a half days of river
travel, from Lake Worth by way of
Fort Lauderdale and up the New
River the party arrived at Ritta on
the south shore of the Lake. They
slept in the Bolles Hotel. After a
short time there, they set out across.
the Lake to Moore Haven. The
party reached Moore Haven Oct. 1,
1915 and found, as Mrs. George
wrote: "One screened tent, occu-


pied by Mrs. King and her cook and
used as a boarding house, two
other very small buildings of one
room each." As to the land, she
continues: "The ground was only
partially cleared and so full of
cracks that it was dangerous to
walk about for fear of breaking and
ankle. I think this point must have
been burned over at some time
previous, leaving it exposed to the
hot sun which caused the soil to
crack."
Some information for this arti-
cle came from: Report of the
Trustees of the Internal Improve-
ment fund on the Operations of the
Atlantic and Gulf coast Canal and

either at a physician's office, the
hospital, or an inpatient therapeu-
tic facility.
There is no time limit on how
long someone stays with the pro-
gram because this kind of treat-
ment can last many years. Mr. Lam-
berti, Mr. Condit and Mr. Harney
each said they got into this type of
counseling by way of their own
addictions, which are now behind
them, and a desire to help.
Mr. Lamberti said that he started
in the field in 1972 after going
- through his own rehabilitation.
"The therapeutic community trains


clients as they go through the
process of their own treatment to
go into whatever capacity they
would fit into," he said. A therapist
he saw in another state had told
him she believed the ex-addict
could best reach the addict. "I
learned from her how to do indi-
vidual and group therapy, and pro-
gram design and development.
When I completed therapy, I was
hired by the house and served as
director of treatment in several
facilities," he said.
Mr. Lamberti was sent to the
First Army Headquarters in Fort
Meade, Md. in the 1970s to bring a
therapeutic community to the
base. He said he worked with hero-
in addicts who had tested positive
in Vietnam with the goal of return-


ing the men: back to active duty.
"And we succeeded," he said.
While the counselors were
drawn into their careers for one
reason, they pursued formal edu-
cation in their chosen field. Mr.
Lamberti said he has a bachelor's
degree in professional counseling,
a Florida State Certification, and a
certificate from the National Addic-
tions Board. Mr. Condit has been a
counselor for 13 years, is state certi-
fied and has a Behavioral Health
Technician certificate. Mr.
Rodriguez has a bachelor's degree
in social work and is working on a
master's degree in social work. Mr.
Hanley expects to complete a mas-
ter's program in July and will be eli-
gible to become a licensed clinical
social worker.

Sunday at the U.S. Open is the
time when careers are made, leads
are lost and players who are very
cool, melt.
After the match, with a few
moments to reflect, the best play-
ers in the world of golf try to
explain what transpired. A few
words can paint quite a picture.
Here are some telling quotes from
Open Sunday:
"These were some of the more
difficult pins I've ever seen."
"If you can't get the speed right,
you can't get the line right, because
speed determines line."
"It's kind of a crap shoot on the
wind. Wind determines so much
what we're going to be able to
shoot."
"I never would have guessed
that Goose would have done what
he did."
-Tiger Woods
"I played rubbish at the end of
the day. There is nothing else to
say."
-Retief Goosen
"There's more sheep than peo-
ple in New Zealand."
"I have no idea how much I
won today, no idea. I don't really
care right now."
"Today I thought about Bob
Charles winning the British Open
back in '63, the last time a New
Zealander won a major champi-
onship, the only time they won a
major championship. And to be in
the same circle, in the same sen-
tence as Bob Charles, is an honor
for me. I'm very, very pleased."


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube

Michael Campbell
"The biggest problem? I just
didn't score that well."
Phil Mickelson

"I was watchirtg since the first'
hole. 'I love watching what I'm
doing, I love watching where I'm
standing."
Sergio Garcia

All you have to do is make one
mistake, and you can make a
double.
-Davis Love III

"The last three days I played
one under par, which is really a
good day."
-Tim Clark

"I'm glad I don't have to play
here for another five or six or
whatever years, because this
place leaves you mentally worn
out. I'm glad to get in with my
round today and head for home."

Children's council seeks volunteers
The Children's Services Council of Okeechobee is in need of a few
fine people to submit an application to the Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners to be a part of the council. Governor Jeb Bush
makes the final appointments with terms of two or four years. The coun-
cil meets monthly to discuss programs and needs of the children in the
community. Once a year, agencies request funds through a grant
process. Each council member "adopts" an agency or two as their own
and monitors the programs' services that they provide to our children.
Those interested in completing an application should contact Cathleen
Blair, executive director at (863) 462-4000, ext. 255

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.
