4-Hers enjoy Horsemanship School


By Katrina Elsken
WELAKA STATE FOREST -
Okeechobee County 4-H horse
club members were among
the young riders at the 4-H
Horsemanship School at Camp
Welaka in June. The school
offered four, one-week ses-
sions.
Campers arrived on Sunday
afternoon and were soon busy
with getting the stalls ready for
their horses and unpacking
their own belongings. After a
quick dinner, they mounted up
for their first lessons.
Activities during the six day
camp started early each day -
those assigned to feed the
horses each morning headed


for the barns at 6:15 a.m. Flag
ceremony at 6:50 a.m. was fol-
lowed by breakfast. By 8 a.m.,
campers were on horseback
for their morning lessons. At 11
a.m., they were busy mucking
out the stalls, washing horses
and feeding the horses before
heading to lunch at noon.
After lunch, campers
attended seminars on topics
such as horse health, horse
training, tack and saddle care.
Two hours of the afternoon
were devoted to recreational
activities such as arts and
crafts, card games and volley-
ball. An early dinner was
served each day at 5 p.m. so
everyone could be back at the

horsemanship lessons.
The campers stayed busy
late into the night with lessons
both on and off the horses and
recreational activities. Most
days there was barely time to
shower before lights out at 11
p.m.
While at the camp, 4-Hers

Pet owners



prepare for



hurricanes


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The 2005 hurricane season
is upon us. With storms
already developing in the Gulf
of Mexico and in the
Caribbean, everyone should
be making preparations for
their own welfare and the wel-
fare of their pets.
Experts now state that pets
should not be left behind.
Even if your pets do survive
the storm alone, they could
escape through broken doors
or windows and become lost.
If you must evacuate your
home, keep in mind that very


few motels will accept pets. Of
all the motels listed in the yel-
low pages of the telephone
book in Okeechobee, only
two reported that they would
accept pets. The Budget Inn,
201 South Parrott Avenue,
stated that they would accept
pets, but will charge an addi-
tional $10 fee per day for the
pet. The Pier II Resort at 2200
U.S. 441 S.E. also accepts pets.
But, they too have an addition-
al per-day charge for the pet.
Only three of the area vet-
erinarians that we contacted

Did hurricanes


leave a storm


of new babies?


By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
In light of the "baby booms"
that came after soldiers from
World War II and the Korean
War returned home, people
wondered if the prolonged
time spent home, without
lights or television would result
in a similar "boom" for South
Florida. For two months South
Floridians battened down and
huddled through Hurricanes
Charley, Frances, Ivan and
Jeanne as their winds howled


and pounding rain battered.
Few of us went to work.
Area hospitals are seeing lit-
tle if any increases in births so
far. In conversations with repre-
sentatives from Glades General
Hospital in Belle Glade, Lake-
land Regional Medical Center
in Lakeland, and St. Lucie Med-
ical Center in Port St. Lucie
reports were that although
some new moms said they had
conceived during the storms,

Phoenix of the Everglades


By MaiyAnn Morris
Of all the towns around Lake
Okeechobee, none has been
subjected to more change than
Belle Glade.
, Pioneering people came
after the Calusa native tribes
left. Written military records
from as early as 1855, spoke of
the area. Author Lawrence Will
wrote in "From Swamp to Sugar
Bowl" about an expedition to
explore the area in 1883. This
trek was inspired by reports of
men employed by Hamilton
Disston. (Mr. Disston had pur-
chased the acreage that was the
Everglades, and more, from the
State of Florida and proceeded
to develop shipping and
drainage channels in the areas
around the Lake.) This expedi-
tion came to the area of the
southeast shore of Lake Okee-
chobee, but not until 1913 is
there any record of anyone liv-
ing there since the Calusa tribe
left.
Hardy farmers came and set-


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


elements developed. A school
was built with lumber provided
by the Palm Beach County
School Board and brought in by
river barge from West Palm
Beach. Since there weren't 50
pupils, the school board
required a contribution from
the locals. The community pro-
vided the land and the principal.
The principal then built the
school building himself.
In 1919, religious services
started to be held and there
wasn't even a building yet. Sol-
diers returning home after


World War I came to join those
already farming here. Hunting
and trapping were good. And
the price for hides made it
worthwhile, as Jessie Motes
recalled from his youth in Belle
Glade.
Buildings followed, homes,
hotels, post office, stores, tele-
phone and electricity followed
in rapid order. Farmers shipped
green beans by freight boat,
then corn, peppers and Irish
potatoes. An ice plant operated
briefly, a packing house and a
filling station rose up, thanks to
the hard work and tenacity of
the pioneers.
People in Belle Glade had
heard that the University of
Florida was thinking of estab-
lishing an agricultural experi-
ment station. Since farming the
black soil of the everglades had
always been the focus of settle-
ment, people thought it was a
logical location for an Agricul-

assigned chores such as serving
meals, cleaning up after meals,
emptying trash, cleaning up the
grounds and raising and lower-
ing the flag.
The school includes training in
both Western and English Horse-
manship. The Okeechobee
campers who ride Western
enjoyed watching the English rid-
ers from other counties practice
dressage and jumping.
The Horsemanship School is
an annual'event, held each sum-
mer at the Welaka Camp and
operated through the University of
Florida/IFAS. The school is open to
children ages 8 to 18, with some
restrictions. Campers must be able
to saddle and bridle their own
horses, so the school may not be
appropriate for smaller children.

tural Experiment Station to help
work out better methods of farm-
ing. Never ones to sit back, they
sent off a letter to the governor.
The result was the arrival of a
barge load of lumber in June of
1923. With it was Mr. M.F. George,
who had built the Moore Haven
Hotel.
The first buildings of the Agri-
cultural Experiment Station were
operational in 1924.
Supplies went up and down
the lake, produce going out and
supplies coming in. Belle Glade
was incorporated in April of 1928,
but on September 16 of that year
the great hurricane hit, killing
thousands of people and destroy-
ing the town and other towns
along the Lake.
Rain .and hideous wind
S pushed across the Lake. The
water, blown by the wind flooded
the southeast side of the Lake,
overturning buildings and wash-
ing away much of the hard-won
progress wrenched from the back
muck land of the Everglades.
Those who survived have told the
stories of fear and loss and sur-
vival.
Many of those stories, together
with the stories of the "sweat
equity" the Belle Glade pioneers
invested in the land were made
into a play called "Potluck in the
Muck".
S"Potluck in the Muck" was
funded by grants from the
f 4 MacArthur Foundation and the
Community Foundation of Palm
Beach and Martin Counties and
the hard work of many people of
Belle Glade. Thanks to Jeannette
(Mrs. Vernon) Dexter, who is gen-
"-" erously sharing some of the play
with our readers, a portion of the
story of one flood survivor from
"Potluck in the Muck," is retold

When the hurricane hit on September 16, 1928, the muck
dike could not hold and the lake water flooded the town, top-
pling buildings and killing over 2,000 people.


here:
"It was nine in the morning, but
it was already stormy and rough as
we got into the car. My father's
home was on the ridge, but after
about an hour, he insisted we all
move up to my brother-in-law's
mother's...He'd built that house;
he knew it was strong, and it was
further back from the shore of the
lake than his. So we moved again.
"It wasn't long, as the wind
grew in intensity, other people,
friends and neighbors came up to
that house, too. By two in the after-
noon, there were thirty or so of us
in a six-room house and the wind
was so strong, a person could not
stand up outside.
"We were getting reports on
the radio, but as the wind got
stronger, it was very hard to hear,
and I knew shorthand, so they had
me with my ear pressed to the
speaker so I could write down any-
thing the announcer said and pass
it along. They would broadcast the
location of the storm center and
predict where it would go, and
finally we knew we were going to
be very near the center. The storm
had changed course. The radio
went dead. There was nothing to
do but sit and wait. We watched
the barometer fall at a speed that

seemed impossible.
"The house felt like it was being
torn from its foundation. A gable
was torn off an upstairs room.
"We noticed water coming in
the floor, and inch or two at a time.
One side of the room where my
brother-in-law lay sick caved
inward but stood I tell ydu this, we
prayed. We told one another that
the water was just from rain com-
ing in where the gable had torn off,
but we each secretly knew better.
Lake water! It was lake water!
"Gradually, over the night, the
water stopped rising. It had come
to our knees. The wind began to
die down. In the middle of the
night, there had been a knock on
the door and people whose house
had floated close to ours saw the
kerosene lamp in the window and
wanted in. We took them in, too.
"So we knew there was
enough water to float a house. In
the first daylight, we looked out to
know it was lake water that had
come in and we had lived through
a hurricane that many, many did
not live through. My father had
taken us to what passes here for
high ground."
Not everyone was so lucky, but
the remaining people rose again
from the death of the storm to
build their towns and plant their
crops again.

article came from "Potluck in the
Muck" and "Swamp to Sugar
Bowl", Lawrence E. Will.)

mostly it was business as usual.
But, there is a second thought.
"One couple who delivered
recently was apart for seven days
during the storms. He is a fire-
fighter, and like other emergency
personnel, was on duty, but then
he came home!" said Melinda
Glasco of Martin Memorial Hospi-
tal in Stuart. "Our numbers have
been increasing with the popula-
tion, but June, 2005 we delivered
172 babies, the second highest
ever," she continued.
"Our nurses said there have
been 3 deliveries so far and they
expect six to eight more today. It's
only the first of July, we'll see if it
keeps up," Ms. Glasco said,
"Maybe relief that the air condi-
tioning came back on was the
inspiration!"
It's really too early to be sure.
Florida counties will report births
to the Office of Vital Statistics.
When they release their numbers,
then we'll know for sure.

will accept pets for boarding in
the event of a hurricane. Mims
Veterinary Hospital, 275 S.W. 32
St., will accept animals on a first-
come, first-served basis with lim-
ited facilities available. The
Okeechobee Veterinary Hospi-
tal, 2949 S.R. 70 W, will also
board animals. If the track of the
hurricane is away from Okee-
chobee, James Letcher DVM,
2973 U.S. 441 N., will take in
boarders. Dr. Letcher explained
that if a hurricane is headed
toward Okeechobee, he cannot
ensure that his building will
withstand the storm and there-
fore does not want to put any of
his furry or feathered patients at
risk.
Keep in mind that if power is
lost to most of the town like it
was last year, these facilities may
also be without water and
power. These veterinarians and
their staff did an outstanding job
last year caring for pets left in
their care through incredibly dif-
ficult conditions.
There are preparations that
you should make well in
advance of the coming storm for
you and your pets.
When you prepare your
hurricane supply kit, also pre-
pare one for your pet.
Make sure to have enough
non-perishable food, water and
whatever medication your pet
may be require for a month.
Have a mechanical can opener,
a food dish, cat litter and pan
and pet waste disposal aides in
your pet supply kit.
If you know that your pet
becomes overly agitated during
a storm, contact your regular
veterinarian to see if he or she
recommends a tranquilizer or
some other way of calming the
pet. A veterinarian will not pre-
scribe tranquilizers for a pet he
or she has never seen. Some-
times a favorite toy or blanket
will help relieve some of the
pet's anxiety.
Keep a sturdy cage or carri-
er to comfortably hold your pet,
as well as a collar and leash. Do
not attempt to confine a pet in a
cage or carrier if they are not
used to one. This will only lead


to more stress on the animal and
on you.
Have all pet vaccinations
up-to-date, and keep records of
these vaccinations in a safe
place.
Take several good pictures
of your pets in the event you
become separated from them.
You will be able to identify them
easier if you have pictures. Place
identification on the pet's collar
or halter. Some local residents
painted their telephone numbers
on their horses' sides in the
event the animals got out of the
pasture.
On the subject of pastures,
it is advisable to leave your large
animals out in their pastures
instead of locked in a barn. Many
animals die needlessly during
Hurricane Andrew because the
barns they were in collapsed,
trapping them inside. Make sure
your fences are in good repair
and the gates securely closed.
Have clean water available for
them. Toss them extra hay to
keep them busy. Purchase
enough feed and medication to
last for two to three weeks fol-
lowing a storm, as feed trucks
may not be able to deliver sup-
plies following a storm. After the
storm, check your pasture. If it is
flooded, move the horses to high
ground to prevent hoof prob-
lems. If possible, walk the pas-
ture to check for any debris that
could injure your animals.
If you have aquariums,
keep in mind that when the
power goes out the filters,
pumps and aerators will not
work. Fish can only go a short
time without air in their water. A
battery-powered fishing aerator
will keep oxygen in the water
and help keep the fish alive. One
local resident kept his tropical
fish alive for over a week using
two aerators that ran on two D
batteries.
No matter what you decide to
do with your pets, the time to
make plans is now. Do not wait
until the last minute and then
just leave them behind or turn
them loose. Remember, your
pets depend o you to take care of
them. Use your good sense, not
your emotions when dealing
with your pets during the
upcoming storms.

Unity may be the answer
"What is going to be done about OUA? I just got a water bill
and my water hasn't even been turned on. It is for having just the
meter. What is it going to take for Okeechobee to stand up and get
a petition to put the OUA under the Public Service Commission in
the State of Florida. Homeowners, renter unit, we must do some-
thing to make this stop." (Editor's note: We spoke with OUA's
finance officer concerning the utility's billing practices. There is an
install fee to have a meter installed. There is also a capital connec-
tion fee and a base charge. This base charge is billed monthly
whether any water is used or not. According to the Florida Public
Service Commission (PSC) many utilities under their jurisdiction
charge these three fees. As to the second part of your question,
the Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) regulates only
investor owned and privately owned utilities. Since OUA falls into
neither category, having been formed by an interlocal local agree-
ment between the city and county, it does not come under PSC
jurisdiction. The utility is sort of a quasigovemmental entity. It is a
regional utility authority set up under Florida Statutes. In effect,
the city and county delegated their utility functions to OUA. It is
governed by a five member board. The city appoints two board
members and one alternate. The county appoints two board
members and one alternate. The board members themselves
appoint one board member and one alternate.)

Lake water
I was out of town recently and when people found out I was
from Okeechobee, they asked me about the pollution in the lake. I
explained that the problem with the lake is excess nutrients, not
chemical pollution. From the way the story is being told in the
newspapers on the coast, you would think our lake water is poi-
son. They keep talking about pollution and not explaining that
what is in the lake is natural. Since Lake Okeechobee was diked to
provide flood protection after the 1928 hurricane, the floating veg-
etation that used to drift south out of the lake arid into the Ever-
glades is now trapped. When the vegetation dies, it goes to the
bottom of the lake and turns into muck. The hurricanes last year
stirred up that muck. It is not as if there are chemicals pouring into
the lake. It is the muck created by decaying vegetation. Before the
lake was diked, this decaying vegetation floated on down south of
the lake and created the 'black gold' soil of the glades region. Now
the muck is at the bottom of the big lake. I don't know what the
answer is, short of taking down the dike on the sound side of the
lake.

Future plans
Are there any future plans for Okeechobee County authorities
to develop the county? The county website doesn't have any infor-
mation. Any subdivisions planned or any companies moving in or
is there any future for this county development.

Developers
Okeechobee County commissioners need to wake up and pay
attention to all of the developments planned for this county. They
need to make those developers help pay for the infrastructure those
new homes will need Our roads, our water and sewer system, our
police and lire protection se\ices are already inadequate Ior the
c current population. Ne\\ dek elopment should pay its own way. It's
time to put some heavy impact fees in place. It is not right for peo-
ple who have lived here all their lives and paid their own way the
whole time to now be burdened with additional expense due to
growth. Growth must pay its own way and impact fees are a start.
And if the impact fees slow growth, then maybe that is not a bad
thing. We need controlled growth that makes sense for this county
. and does not degrade the quality of life for those already living here.

Play camp
My children go to the county's summer play camp and I just
want to thank the Recreation department for the wonderful job
they are doing this year. There were some problems last year and
from what I can see, those problems have been addressed. I feel
very comfortable leaving my kids at camp, and the kids seem to
enjoy it. Like most folks in this town, both my husband and I have
to work full time to support the family. So it is nice to know the
kids are in a safe and supervised situation and they are having a
good time while we are at work.

Shorter recycle routes
I wonder if the recycle men think that their streets are getting
shorter and shorter because a lot of people are just throwing it all
together now, rather than fooling with it and keeping it separate.
Surely they would have recognized this by now.

Insurance renewal
I am wondering what people are doing when their insurance
gets canceled. Mine was just canceled. And are theyable to find
other trailer insurance right away.

agenda.


Many newspaper owners have a hidden "agenda" whether
it is political, economic or to promote the publisher's cronies.

Not us. We're owned by a unique non-profit journalistic trust.

Our ONLY mission is to provide the information and under-
standing citizens need to make intelligent decisions about pub-
lic issues. In doing so, we strive to report the news with hon-
esty, accuracy, fairness, objectivity, fearlessness and compas-
sion.

How are we doing?

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