Home owners face tough choices


Residents try
to bring homes
into compliance
By Loma Jablonsld
Okeechobee News
"I have no idea what I'm
going to do. I'm one of the lucky
ones. I feel sorry for the people
who are permanent year-round
residents," said Morris Rideout, a
mobile home owner at Taylor
Creek Lodge after receiving his
non-compliance notice.
As the deadline for correction
of the violations of park rules at
Taylor Creek Lodge approaches,


many of the residents are facing
difficult choices. In some cases,
simply removing or repositioning
sheds will solve their encroach-
ment violations. But others face
more difficult decisions.
With encroachments ranging
from 1.3 to 14.6 feet, residents
are scrambling to find solutions.
One mobile home has already
been brought into compliance by
moving the utility shed off the
easement.
But 12 mobile home owners
will not get off that easily. Their
mobile homes either sit right on
the property line, which is in vio-
lation of the 5-ft. county set-back
requirement, or are encroaching
over the property line.


"I live in Illinois and only
come down to my home in Tay-
lor Creek Lodge two weeks a
year," said Mr. Rideout. "I put it
up for sale before all this started.
Now, I don't think anyone will
buy it.
Mr. Rideout's mobile home is
encroaching 3.2 feet across the
lot line of the Lodge.
"I saw in the paper they sent
me that some are across the lot
line up to 14 ft. If they try to pull
them forward to bring them
inside the park lot line, they'll be
sitting in the road in the middle of
the park," he commented.
Economics play a large part ih

Mobile homes and sheds await their fate as home owners
scramble to bring their homes into compliance with Taylor
Creek Lodge regulations. Taylor Creek Resort RV Park, the
owners of Taylor Creek Lodge, issued First Notice of Park
Rules Violations to home owners for rules violations naming
encroachment issues as reason for the notices.

About 30 kids attended the commencement of Vacation Bible School at Treasure Island
Baptist Church last Sunday. They sang Christian songs and acted them out in keeping
with the Serengeti National Park theme. A total of 45 K-6 grade students attended the
week-long school. Ten children received Christ, $189 was collected for missions, 155
cans of food were collected for a food drive, and 34 toys were collected for Christmas
Around the World.


FORT PIERCE Citrus
canker has been found in a Uni-
versity of Florida research grove
at the Indian River Research and
Education Center near Fort
Pierce, and about 10,000 trees
will have to be destroyed, offi-
cials said Friday.
The discovery was confirmed
Thursday by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services and will mean
stopping all citrus research proj-
ects at the center, said Brian Scul-
ly, director of the center and a
horticulture professor with UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences.
More than two dozen experi-
ments were under way at the
center, using trees planted 30 to


.50 years ago.
"It will take us a number of
years to recover, but ultimately
this setback will offer us a fresh
start and improved groves in
which to conduct research,"
Scully said.
Canker is one of the most
destructive disease threats to
Florida's $9 billion citrus indus-
try. The disease, caused by bac-
teria, can affect all citrus vari-
eties, including grapefruit,
oranges and tangerines, all of
which are grown at the center.
Infected trees develop small
brown lesions on leaves, stems
and fruit. It eventually reduces

Basinger, the cradle of civilization


As told to MaryAnn Morris
The community of
Basinger was really the cradle
of civilization for settlement of
Okeechobee County from the
middle, 1800s. Settlers homes
ran up along what is now
County Road 700-A and the
last names of the people who
live there even now read like a
partial who's who of Okee-
chobee pioneers: Raulerson,
Chandler, Thomas and Bass.
A boy who stowed away
on a ship from Sweden
brought the Hazellief name to
America. Charles Gustov
Hazellief stowed away aboard
a ship bound for Florida in
1865 and landed at Tampa at
Ybor City. He was a cobbler by
trade and an advertisement in
a local newspaper from 1867
advertised his shoe repair
shop there. He married Mer-
antha Raulerson. One of their
sons, Noel worked on a
steamboat on the Kissimmee
River around 1910 and met


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





and married John and Annie
Thomas' daughter Samantha
and settled with her in
Basinger.
Nathan Hazellief was born
and raised in Basinger and
remembers: "You used to get
to the river south of where the
bridge is now. There used to
be a wooden bridge about
three-quarters of a mile long.
When we were going to herd
cattle up that way, we used to
have to get out and patch that
bridge before we brought the
cattle across because it would
have holes in it they could step


through."
"I went to school there in
Basinger. Now every year we
have a school reunion there at
the community center in
Basinger.
Going up 700-A back then,
as now, you passed the Christ-
ian Brethren Church on the
right. Then, after you go north
around the curves and across
the bay head, there is on old
orange grove on the right.
Years ago it belonged to my
grandpa. Later, my dad plant-
ed oranges on five acres
Grandpa gave him.
In the 1920s during the big
land boom, developers used
to bring northern people
down on the train. There was
a railroad that ran down to a
station house up north on the
prairie (where the State Park is
now). I remember they built a
huge, tall windmill there.
"Prairie Ridge", they called
that station. Then they'd haul
the people by wagon from


where the train stopped to
show them the land.
Well they bought orange
trees from my grandpa's place
in Basinger, planted them in
barrels and then sank the bar-
rels into the soil up on the
prairie. They'd take a wagon
load of people by to show
them how beautifully orange
trees grew, drive them around
and bring them right back by
from a different direction. To
the people, it all looked the
same, they didn't know the
difference! Thinking they
could farm up there, they paid
good money for those lots.
That was the Florida land
boom!
Zack Miller did have the
101 Ranch up there in the
1920s. They had telephone
and even dipping vats. There
was land along the Peavine
Trail was going to be a whole
town at one time."

the decisions these home owners
face. Some of the offending
homes are used only a small part
of the year. The owners have
other homes in different states. If
they are forced to remove these
homes it will be costly and incon-
venient, but they will still have
roofs over their heads. But, there
are a. number of residents who
live in these mobile homes year-
round. Their plight is far worse
than the winter residents.
Most are living on small,
fixed incomes.
Many of the mobile homes
are 20 years old or even older. It
is not feasible to move them. To
do so could possibly damage or
destroy them.
No mobile home park in the
county will accept homes this
old.
County ordinances prohibit
placing singlewide mobile
homes on private pieces of prop-
erty with the exception that the
property owner may replace an
existing singlewide one time


with a new singlewide. If there is
no mobile home on the property
that is purchased, then only a
doublewide can be placed there.
The price of land has sky-
rocketed in the past several
months. Lots are selling for
$50,000 and up.
According to two mobile
home dealers in the area, the
least expensive doublewides
they offer range from $47,000 to
$49,900. One dealer stated that
there are additional dosts
involved depending on if the
property has existing utilities or
new ones must be installed.
The cost to remove or
demolish these mobile homes
can run into thousands of dollars
and finding someone to do this
work is very difficult. Most com-
panies that handle this type of
work are still dealing with hurri-
cane victims.
As the rest of the community
celebrates the Independence
Day weekend, mobile home resi-
dents of this small park will be
wondering where they will be
next year and how could this
happen to them?

(The first recorded plat of the
area, the Plat of Township 34-
South, Range 33-East shows a
planned "Town Site of Deesa" in
Section 15. The plat was signed in
January, 1912. This was before
Okeechobee was a county or
even a city. This area was part of
Osceola County until Okee-
chobee County was formed in
1917. The original plat is filed in
Osceola County public records.)
Mr. Hazellief continues: "Now
on 700-A, past the orange grove,
we talked about, and past some
more houses back under the trees
and around the curve, on the left
is the road that goes to the old
schoolhouse. That's where us
Basinger kids went to school.
That's the stucco building they're
trying to preserve now."
"But I left Basinger two
months into ninth grade and got a
job with Holmes and Raulerson
working cows up on the prairie:
two horses and $1.25 a day for a
six week roundup. We drove
some cattle to Okeechobee and
some to Fellsmere. It took 14 men
seven days to drive 1,400 head up
to Fellsmere. We loaded and
trucked them across the St. John's
Marsh. We, loaded and trucked
cows day and night until they
were all across.
One time I had 10 or 12-head
of heifers in a truck. I knew some-
thing happened and I looked
back and the whole bed of the
truck had tipped off and fallen on
a fence by the side of the road."
"Now, when I was really little,
about five years old,'I used to try
to ride the calves and I got pretty
good at it. But one time I got on a
bigger steer and I couldn't get him
to move at all and I didn't like that.
So I ordered a pair of spurs from
the Sears Roebuck Catalogue for
35 cents. When they came in the
mail, I opened them right up and
wore them all the way home,
bare feet and all. None of us kids
wore shoes back then. Well, I got
back up on that big steer and dug
into him with my new spurs and
he tossed me flat! That was the
beginning of my career in rodeo. I

had heard of a fella by the name
of Jim Go who had a big, big
horse who could rope a bull and
throw him down and tie him up. I
never did meet him, but I saw him
at a rodeo on Fort Pierce one
time."
"I rode rodeo for a long time.
At first they weren't going to let
me ride, I was only about 16 years


old and they thought I was too
small, but they finally let me.
When I went up to ride, they said,
"Get your rope ready" and I said

didn't know you were supposed

Trying to make cents on the LPGA tournament


By Daniel Shube
According to the LPGA, "These
Girls Rock". However, according to
my co-host Dave Rossi on the
Inside Golf radio show (Tuesday
nights from 7 until 9 p.m.
(1400ESPN.com) the LPGA needs
competition from the US women.
and needs a shot of sex appeal to6
get someone to watch.
I have taken a different
approach. I agree that the ratings
have been non-existent. And that is
a shame, since these women do
have game. It is also true that the
professionals from Asia seem to be
the only players that are giving
Annika Sorenstam a run for the
money. So what is the problem
here?
I look at the LPGA like a busi-
ness. Each player is an independ-
ent company with a product their
golf game. Compare the LPGA to
the auto industry. Many years ago,
the big three in Detroit had the
market cornered. However, the
Hondas and Toyotas sensed a
weakness. They did their home-
work well. Then they came to our


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube

country and took a major share of
the business. The domestic
automakers are still trying to come
back. Yet, many Americans appre-
ciate the quality that the imports
offer. The domestic automakers
needed a wake-up call. Even if your
company is leading the pack, you
can never get too comfortable.
There is always a competitor that
wants to take your business away.
So, the American players on the
LPGA, like Meg Mallon and Rosie
Jones weren't putting the numbers


up as often. Of course Annika was,
but even Annika can't play and win
every week. Enter Se Ri Pak, then
Grace Park. And Mi Hyun Kim,
Young Kim and now, US Open
winner Birdie Kim.
While Dave's point of view is
that since the tournaments are
played predominantly on our soil,
the fans want to see their home-
town heroes atop the leaderboard.
I think differently. First of all, I tip
my golf cap to the hard work that it
takes for a foreign-born player to
pack their bags, set off to a foreign
land and then be able to play at the
level that they are competing.
These girls have thrown down
the gauntlet. Just wait. Recent his-
tory has been reserved for the over-
seas players. There has been a void
and it will be filled. Christie Kerr
has been fighting to get to the top.
Michelle Wie is poised to take the
LPGA (and possibly the PGA) tours
by storm. Boca Raton's Morgan
Pressel almost pulled-off a huge
upset at the Open, tying for second
place with another amateur Ameri-
can teen, Brittany Lang.

Grid conditioning
program under way
Summer conditioning sessions
have begun at Okeechobee High
School for the Brahman football

ing sessions.

man field house at (863) 462-5050

Sheriff's office

The Crime Prevention Unit of
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office will host the second annual

chobee Golf and Country Club.

will donate a Harley Davidson

Lunch will be provided immedi-
ately following the tournament.


Don't forget Natalie Gulbis. She
isn't just a swimsuit model she
does have game!
It is quite possible that we will
be in for a battle royale, between
the young talent from Asia and the
younger talent from the states.
Now that's what I'm talking about!
.The competition between these
great young guns will bring some
ratings, plus please those all-
important sponsors. And, be a
windfall for those fans that are wise
enough to tune in.
The LPGA is right. These Girls
do Rock!

African honeybees becoming established in Florida


GAINESVILLE African hon-
eybees also known as killer bees -
have entered Florida, and a Univer-
sity of Florida researcher says the
aggressive insects may eventually
spread throughout the state and
move into other areas of the'south-
eastern United States.
The bees, which tend to sting in
large numbers, have been found
and stopped at various Florida
ports over the past decade, but
now it looks like they're here to
stay, said Glenn Hall, an associate
professor of entomology at UF's
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences. He said Florida's
warm climate is ideal for the bees,
which could be bad news for the
state's $16 million honeybee indus-
try.
"If African honeybees become
established in large numbers over
the next few years, they will affect
the beekeeping industry and the
pollination of many crops," Hall
said. "Public safety, recreation and
tourism may also be affected, lead-
ing to liability problems."
Hall, a bee geneticist who devel-
oped DNA markers to identify
African honeybees, said that to
the untrained eye they look the
same as resident European honey-
tc2s.
African bees more aggressively
defend their nests than European
bees. African bees may swarm as
many as 16 times a year while
European bees swarm about three
times a year, he said.
The African bees invaded five
southwestern states in the 1990s
and have periodically turned up at


.r M

Glenn Hall, an associate professor of entomology at the Uni-
versity of Florida's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences, checks honeybees in Gainesville. He saidthe arrival
of African bees in Florida is not unexpected and should not
be viewed with undue alarm at this time. Hall, who is working
with the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer
Services and other government agencies to educate the pub-
lic about African bees, said they may eventually spread
throughout the state and move into other areas of the south-


eastern United States.
Florida's deep-sea ports since
1987, Hall said. Until recently,
swarms entering through ports
such as Jacksonville, Miami and
Tampa have been successfully cap-
tured in bait hives maintained by
,the Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services.
"However, new finds in the
Tampa area suggest that African
bees are spreading and becoming
established in the state, and they


are being found farther inland from
the ports," Hall said. "We did not
believe that enough bees could
arrive on ships to form an estab-
lished population, but they did so
in Puerto Rico, and now appear to
be doing the same in Florida."
He said the infestation around
Tampa is still small, and the bees
are not unusually aggressive. As
isolated swarms enter one by one
through the ports, daughter African


queens from the swarms have no
choice but to mate with the resi-
dent European male drones. Fortu-
nately, the hybrid offspring are not
as aggressive as their African par-
ents.
"Once the combination of
hybrids and new introductions
reaches a critical mass, bees of
African descent will likely start to
mate with each other, resulting in
offspring with more African-like
characteristics," Hall said.
He said that the arrival of
African bees is not unexpected and
should not be viewed with undue
alarm at this time.
"Concerns about the bees have
been exaggerated, with some
media and motion pictures por-
traying swarms of deadly, stinging
insects invading cities," Hall said.
"Nevertheless, it's important to be
aware. African bees have attacked
and killed people and livestock in
Africa, in South and Central Ameri-
ca, and in other states."
There have been 14 fatalities in
the United States, and hundreds of
nonfatal stinging incidents have
been reported.
Neither the European nor
African race of honeybee is native
to the Americas, Hall said. The
European honeybee (Apis mellif-
era) has been managed by com-
mercial and hobby beekeepers
worldwide for many centuries,
selected for desirable traits such as
gentleness, honey production, ten-
dency not to swarm, winter hardi-
ness and disease resistance.
On the other hand, the African
honeybee (Apis mellifera scutella-

ta) is adapted for survival in Africa's
harsh environment where climate,
predation and other factors have
produced a hardy race, Hall said.
In the 1950s, Brazilian scientists
thought that the bees from tropical
regions in Africa might thrive in
South America's tropical environ-
ment better than the previously
imported European honeybees.
"They were right," Hall said.
"Once the African honeybees were
released in Brazil, they quickly
spread throughout South and Cen-
tral America, advancing up to 300
kilometers a year through the trop-
ics into Mexico. It was only a mat-
ter of time until the African honey-
bee population reached the United
States."
Movements of African honey-
bees have been tracked more
closely than any other invasive
insect. First detected in the south-
ernmost counties of Texas in 1990,
they quickly spread to New Mexi-

Since then, they have moved into

Many of the wild (feral)

ing it difficult for beekeepers to
manage European honeybees and
keep out African honeybee genes.
In areas colonized by African bees,
regular beekeeping operations
with European honeybees are dis-
rupted, and costs of management
are increased.
Because of urbanization in
Florida and public fears over
African bees, coupled with increas-
ing liability, apiary sites could be
more difficult to obtain in the
future, Hall said. These concerns -
along with the marginal income
from beekeeping could discour-
age beekeepers in the future. That
would decrease the availability of
bees and increase the price of rent-
ing bee colonies that are essential
for the pollination of crops.
"Large populations of Euro-
pean honeybees managed by bee-
keepers are probably our best
defense against African bees," Hall
said. "The European honeybees
compete with African bees for food
sources. When they interbreed
with the African bees, defensive
stinging behavior in their offspring
is reduced."
