Four blasts
rock London
LONDON Four explo-
sions rocked the London sub-
way and tore open a' packed
double-decker bus during the
morning rush hour Thursday,
sending bloodied victims flee-
ing in the worst attack on Lon-
don since World War II. At
least 40 people were killed,
U.S. officials said, and more
than 700 were wounded.
A clearly shaken Prime Min-
ister Tony Blair called the coor-
dinated attacks "barbaric" and
said they were designed to
coincide with the G-8 summit
opening in Gleneagles, Scot-
land. They also came a day
after London won the bid to
host the 2012 Olympics. A
group calling itself the Secret
Organization of al-Qaida in
Europe claimed responsibility.

Mid-Florida Hardware keeps hurricane supplies on a weekly order schedule to meet
demand for area residents.

Local hardware stores 'well-stocked'


By D.Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Local residents, who did not
take advantage of the tax free
hurricane supply period during
June and are still in need of sup-
plies can rest a little easier. In
checking with area hardware
stores, most have an abundant
supply of necessary items need-
ed to safeguard residents'
homes. After Jeanne and
Frances tore through the area
during last year's hurricane sea-
son, store owners found them-
selves without electricity to
operate or supply to meet
demand.
This year, many store own-
ers have stocked up on supplies
listing items like plywood, tarps,
flashlights, batteries and tape,
as being, 'well stocked.' Also,
large ticket items such as gener-
ators and room-size air condi-
tioners, which can be run on a
generator, are plentiful on store
sales floors as well as being


back-stocked in warehouses.
Last year's hurricane season
found store employees learning
how difficult it is to operate
without power. Roger
Woodruff, of W.W. Lumber
said, "We were open the day
after each hurricane, with or
without power. The store was
open the day after Jeanne hit
and we were escorting shop-
pers through the store 10 at a
time using flashlights for light
and handwriting tickets." This
year, the store has a new gener-
ator which will run the entire
store operations. Mr. Woodruff
also said, "We have plenty of
5,000 watt generators and ply-
wood in stock to meet
demand." Mr. Woodruff did say
that the store is sold, out of
15,000 watt generators and are
on back order. He also noted
that five gallon gasoline con-
tainers are a fast moving item
since they are usually sold each
time someone purchases a gen-
erator.


Civil Air Patrol


restarts local unit


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Thursday's Kiwanis Club
meeting welcomed Captain
Dave Littlefield of the local unit
of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) to
talk to the group about what the
CAP will bring to the local com-
munity. Cpt. Littlefield who is a
pilot, certified flight instructor
and a member of the U.S. Air
Force Auxiliary, told the group
that the Civil Air Patrol's three
core missions allows him to be
part of an organization that
gives back to the community.
The first of the three missions
that Cpt. Littlefield discussed
was the Cadet Program, which
provides 12 to 18 year olds the
opportunity to develop leader-
ship skills through the love of
aviation. Young Cadets take part
in survival training, ground


based search and rescue, lead-
ership training, radio communi-
cations, model rocketry, disas-
ter relief, public speaking,
physical fitness, astronomy and
flight training. The Civil Air
Patrol also gives cadets the
opportunity to qualify for aca-
demic and flight scholarships
allowing them to participate in
competing and qualifying for
the over $100,000 in scholar-
ships awarded each year.
The second mission of the
CAP is to provide emergency
services in times of disaster.
Cpt. Littlefield informed the
group that the Civil Air Patrol
that after the 911 bombings of
the towers in New York, the
Civil Air Patrol was back in the
air within three hours and pro-
vided damage assessments of

See Patrol- Page 2


Mid-Florida Hardware (for-
merly Scotty's) on U.S. 441, is
another area hardware retailer
who learned from last year's
hurricane season. The store's
inventory manager, Young
Rucks said, "Last year we were
not prepared for the hurricanes
that hit. We were doing any-
thing that we could to help peo-
ple to get what they needed. We
opened the store with no power
and little in the way of extra
stock. This year we are well
stocked with plywood, anchors,
tape, tarps, flashlights, and bat-
teries. We've even ordered a
supply of bottled water and
other supplies. The store also
has a large supply of generators
in stock ranging from 5,000 watt
to 9,500 watt and plenty of
gasoline containers. However,
we do not have a store genera-
tor. We will have to do the same
as we did last year in opening
the store without electricity,
doing whatever we can to help
out the community."

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson was
in Okeechobee Wednesday
afternoon as part of a series of
town hall meetings he is con-
ducting through central Florida
during the Senate recess.
The senator discussed a
wide range of topics including
Social Security reform, the
retirement of Supreme Court
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor,
the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) free
trade, citrus canker, and the oil
situation.
The senator was introduced
by Okeechobee County Super-
intendent of Schools Dr. Patri-
cia Cooper.
In response to a question


from the senator about the
state of the school system, Dr.
Cooper replied: "Growth is our
major challenge." She went on
to say that next year they are
expecting 7500 students in the
school system.
"Growth is causing a strain
on capital and resources," she
said.
The senator went on to state
that the No Child Left Behind
Act was designed for accounta-
bility of school districts. He said
it was passed with the promise
of an additional $6 billion in
funding which never material-
ized.
Sen. Nelson used the occa-
sion to announce that he is
sponsoring legislation aimed at

preventing the government from
seizing homes on behalf of devel-
opers. The bill is designed to pro-
tect homes, small business and
other private property rights by
limiting the power of eminent
domain. The bill specifically
states that the power of eminent
domain shall be available for pub-
lic use. It goes to state that public
use shall not be construed to
include economic development.

This bill is in response to a
June 23 Supreme Court decision
stating that local governments
can seize the property of one
owner and transfer the property
to another owner if such transac-
tion would result in increased
economic development.
The senator believes this rul-
ing is in opposition to the fifth
amendment of the constitution
and he predicted it would be
overturned.
Sen. Nelson said "probably the
biggest thing on the radar screen"
is the vacancy in the supreme

point during a town hall
meeting held Wednesday
afternoon at the Okeechobee
County Courthouse.
court caused by the retirement of
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor.
As to his choice of a replace-
ment he stated, "I'm looking for
somebody open minded, fair,
non-partisan and fiercely inde-
pendent."
He called for a justice with
judicial temperament who would


apply the law for fair and impar-
tial decisions. He said he did not
want a justice that would be
under the thumb of the president
or the legislative branch.
Turning to FEMA, the senator
said that in the aftermath of the
hurricanes they did a better job
than after Hurricane Andrew.
However, he said that FEMA is
guilty of "poor management.
"I will continue to bang on
FEMA with everything I've got," he
said.
He suggested that any com-
plaints against FEMA be referred to
his West Pam Beach Office.
On the subject of the Mideast,
the senator asserted, "We have to
be successful in Iraq. We don't
have a choice." He said it would be
"absolutely chaotic" if Al-Qaida
gained control of the eastern oil
supplies.
Senator Nelson said that privati-
zation of Social Security would
result in more expense to rural
communities. He said at the cur-
rent prediction rate the Social
Security would remain sound for
several decades. Therefore, he
believes there is some time to fix
the problem.


"Social Security is not an invest-
ment system. It is a security sys-
tem," he said.
He said that privatization would
take money out of the trust fund
and lower benefits.
He called for bipartisan efforts
to solve the problem, saying that
there are many things that could
be done to tweak the system.
The senator said the U. S. is
importing close to 60 percent of oil
and that is an unacceptable posi-
tion. He advocated using ethanol
made from corn, sugar or prairie
grass and mix the ethanol with
gasoline to make it go further.
He also advocated electric vehi-
cles, noting that most gasoline is
used in private vehicles.
In response to a question about
immigration, Senator Nelson said
that immigration was one of sever-
al things that are impossible to
change overnight. He noted that
that there are 8 to 10 million illegal
immigrants employed in agricul-
tural jobs. Sending these immi-
grants home would have disas-
trous affects on our economy, he
predicted.
However, he also believes that
illegal immigration poses a securi-


ty problem, with terrorists being
able to enter this country from
Mexico.
He said he was not in favor of
blanket amnesty but favored some
type of program whereby illegal
immigrants who had been in this
country for a certain length of time
could apply for temporary status.
Senator Nelson said he spon-
sored a bill to do away with estate
tax.
As for citrus canker, he said: "I
have become your champion." He
noted that it seemed to be under
control before the hurricanes but
hurricane winds spread the
canker. He said he had money in a
bill for irradiation and to compen-
sate growers.
The senator noted that $13.5
billion had been appropriated for
hurricane relief. He thought some
of this money should be ear-
marked to compensate citrus
growers for losses due to citrus
canker.
He noted that a tariff protects
Florida citrus from Brazilian com-
petition. Without the tariff, he pre-
dicted that Brazil could drive Flori-
da citrus growers out of business.

Littlefield said, "The Civil Air
Patrol provides search and rescue
assistance in locating downed
planes using 'spectral imaging'
which uses remote sensing tech-
niques." Continuing he said,
"Civil Air Patrol emergency servic-
es are used in tracking all Emer-

Littlefield explained that EPIRB is
a global beacon system which
allows a signal coming from a
satellite to locate a missing boat

Just milking the system
You cannot just make people leave. A mandatory evacuation
doesn't even mean you have to leave your home, all it means is that if
you don't and need help you are on your own until everything clears.
As far as putting the trailers at Okee-Tantie, it was a bad idea but
where else would you put them that was free and they have two years
of the free living before they are supposedly going to be made to give
the trailers back. I can tell you from living in one before (not hurricane
related) that they are not fun living, so the ones that are still in trailers
are not doing a whole lot to get out of them. They will probably milk it
for the two years. I have neighbors that are doing a great job of it there
is about 10 of them living in two FEMA trailers and have done nothing
with their house to even try to fix it!

Trailers in Okee-Tantie
Here we have several tropical storms and depressions we are
watching; the lake is at more than 16 feet and still they have not got-
ten those trailers out of Okee-Tantie. They never should have put
those trailers there to begin with. It is inside the dike. If there is a storm
surge, those people could be killed. FEMA and the county officials
need to get those trailers moved and quickly. It has been a year and
those people have had rent-free housing all that time. Surely by now
they must have saved a nest egg and be able to move to other hous-
ing. It is not safe to stay at Okee-Tantie in hurricane season.

All Stars
This is in reference to the Ponytail girl's softball All-Star team.
There were 60 plus girls on the local OCRA league and out of those 60
girls 10 were picked to play on the All-Star team. However, when they
went to the tournament in Winter Haven they pulled in a girl who did-
n't play on the OCRA local league at all. How is that fair to the girls
who weren't picked or even those who were that had to sit on the
bench? Is there not an alternate list to pick from on the girls that
played on the local OCRA league to fill spots just in case they need to?

OCRA
As adults and taking on the commitment of coaching young indi-
viduals you would think that the standard would be to do the best you
could for those kids. But that doesn't seem to be the case with OCRA.
I guess these coaches were teaching to do whatever it takes to win,
even if it is cheating.

Doing the job
I would like to express my opinion about the sexual offenders. It is
not that Boca and everywhere are doing some thing about it and
we're not. It is that they are finally buckling down and doing what
they should have been doing all along. You don't hear about sexual
offenders repeating because our law enforcement is on top of the sit-
uation, and monitoring them.

Not 50 caliber
This is about the 50 caliber water-cooled machine gun. There is
no such thing in the army. I spent 20 years in the military; there was a
30 caliber water-cooled machine gun. Some one doesn't know what
they are talking about.

Notacannon
This has to do with the cannon that appeared in the paper. They
are not a 50-caliber machine gun. What they are is 30-caliber water
cooled heavy machine gun.

Tractor Trailers
The tractor trailers that come through or into Basswood between
U.S. 441 and U.S. 98 including the ones operated or owned by drivers
who live in Basswood should not be allowed to come through our
subdivision unless they are making a delivery. They are too heavy for
our current roads. The drivers who live here are tearing our roads
apart when they pull off to the side to park and most of the time they
can't get all the way off so they block one lane of traffic, which is ille-
gal to block the flow of traffic and should be reported to the sheriffs
department. They also leak liquids which help to deteriorate our
roads and are probably hazardous to our health. Has anyone ever
seen a tractor trailer that didn't leak some kind of liquid? Also who
checks on what chemicals these trucks could be carrying into our
subdivisions? These trucks should be required to park on company
owned property. If they are owner/operators then find some place
suitable to park besides in front of their homes and quit tearing up our
roads. Our county road department does a good job trying to keep
our roads repaired, but they can't keep up with the damage these
trucks do to our Toads. I would like to see our county commissioners
take a stand on keeping or limiting the amount of truck traffic through
Basswood and our other subdivisions in Okeechobee County.

Leaving notes
This is for the person walking around Wal-Mart parking lots leav-
ing notes on cars. It's apparent you cannot read. If you would have
walked around to the back of the grey Ford you left the note on and
see the handicap license plate on the car. If you have a license plate
like that you do not need the blue and white tag hanging in the car.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their
publishers or corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think,
or to try to control public opinion. Our editors insist on pur-
poseful neutrality. We try to report the news fairly and facili-
tate a fair but vigorous discussion of public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're
proud to understand the difference.

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling
your editor.
