Scholarships: Hospital auxiliary helps students

Hospital auxiliary donates $10,000


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
Attending college just got a
little easier for ten Okee-
chobee students who attend
Indian River Community Col-
lege (IRCC). The Raulerson
Hospital Auxiliary granted
each student a $1,000 scholar-
ship for each year of college
they attend.
'A check for $10,000 was
handed to Sam Smith, provost
of IRCC, on Thursday by Jean
Rego, scholarship chairperson
for the hospital auxiliary, and
Dorothy Brooks, auxiliary vice-
president. Robert Lee, Rauler-
son Hospital C.E.O. also par-
ticipated in the scholarship
presentation.
The check went into the
college's scholarship founda-
tion and, by doing so, the
school's foundation will even-
ly match the auxiliary's dona-


tion, doubling the scholarship
amount. If the money would
not have gone through the
schools' foundation, only the
original $10,000 could have
been awarded, according to
Mr. Smith.
The ten students receiving
the $1,000 per year scholar-
ship are as follows: Ronda
Anderson, Cherie Lorene Ash,
James Block II, Judy Boswell,
Elizabeth Clifford, Christine
Hoy, Shelly Diane Gee, Brooke
Markel, Diane Markel, and
Tina Weaver.
Monies for the scholarship
fund come from purchases
made at the hospital's gift
shop, which is operated by the
auxiliary. According to Mrs.
Rego, about $4,000 is kept
back each year from their net
proceeds to purchase supplies
and pay operating expenses
for the gift shop. "The rest
goes to the scholarship fund,"


she said.
Since 1991, the auxiliary
has handed out 150 scholar-
ships, usually for $1,000. "One
year we had 18 apply and each
one only got $750. But we usu-
ally give $1,000 scholarships,"
Mrs. Rego said. This year, there
was some scholarship money
left over, but only 10 students
applied. According to Mrs.
Rego, the auxiliary had
$20,000 plus $1,000 left with
the IRCC Foundation from last
year. Subtracting the $4,000 to
operate the gift shop, the aux-
iliary could have given out
$16,000 in scholarships.
Guidelines for qualifying for
a hospital auxiliary scholar-
ship include the following: 1)
Resident of Okeechobee, 2)
Enrolled as a student in the
medical field, 3) Sign a paper
promising to work six months
at Raulerson Hospital upon
completion of college.


Pirate radio station 100.9
FM listeners were in for a sur-
prise on Wednesday when
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul May came on the air. The
sheriff advised the station,
which had been broadcasting
illegally in Okeechobee Coun-
ty, was going off the air.
The pirate station came to
the attention of law enforce-
ment officials when the Okee-
chobee, Ministerial Associa-
tion complained about the
offensive language and
inflammatory statements
broadcast by that station.


The content of the radio
broadcasts included state-
ments and songs of an inflam-
matory nature, containing vul-
gar language and promoting
drug sales, drug use, violence,
killing of police, degradation
of women and gang involve-
ment.
Ministerial Association
members were concerned
that any child might be acan-
ning the radio dial for music
could be exposed to the foul
language and inflammatory

Center puts teens on track


By D.Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Kiwanis Club members wel-
comed Ms. Beverly Alvarado of
the Eckerd Intensive Halfway
House during Thursday's meet-
ing to talk to club members
about the program for the 30
male youths who live there.
Ms. Alvarado explained to
the club members that the first
thing that the boys ask when
they arrive is, "How long will I
be here?" She said, "Our
answer to that question is pretty
much the same each time. We
follow our philosophy and all of
the boys who enter are told that
it is not about time, it is about
change."
Ms.. Alvarado continued by
saying, "All of the youths are
sent to the center under court
order for some sort of crime or
substance abuse, mostly first
time offenders. The boys, age
13-17, come to Eckerd for an
average of -12-14 months


attending
group ses-
sions, attend-
ing school
and learning
to set positive
goals."
Ms.
Alvarado
related to the
group that Beverly
the center is a Alvarado
'Level 6 mod-
erate risk'
with about a 15 percent recidi-
vism rate of the boys returning
to the center for further deten-
tion. She said, "The boys at the
center are involved in comtu-
nity projects once they are in
the transition period of their
prescribed time. They do
fundraising projects such as car
washes for foster care children
and are also involved in the
Adopt a Road project. The
youths in transition are also per-
mitted to go on field trips and
may also be permitted to go on


a home visit towards the end of
their time at the center. Also,
regular visitations on Sundays
and holidays are permitted
when the boys on good behav-
ior can visit with family mem-
bers at the center."
The guest speaker conclud-
ed by telling Kiwanians that the
center is in' need of members
for the Eckerd Halfway House
Advisory Board and invites any-
one who is interested to contact
the center for more informa-"
tion.
In other Kiwanis Club busi-
ness:
Club member, Dowling
Watford announced a new
Kiwanis Club project sponsor-
ing the new unit of the Civil Air
Patrol. Anyone interested in
becoming involved in the Civil
Air Patrol, can contact Gene
O'Neill at (863) 763-3212.

Delivering dirt
Stanley Peterson of Okeechobee was hauling a dump
load of black dirt to a new job site on Northwest 131st
Lane, when according to Deputy Brian Hagan of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office, Mr. Peterson tried
to make a right turn onto Northwest 131st Lane off of
U.S. 441 N. at a rate of speed that would not allow him to
complete the turn resulting in the dump truck he was
driving to overturn. Deputy Hagan said Mr. Peterson was
taken to Raulerson Hospital with non-life threatening
injuries and was cited for not wearing a seat belt.

statements.
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office contacted the
Federal Communications Com-
mission, and determined the sta-
tion was not licensed by the
FCC. The station, which was
broadcasting on FM Band 100.9,


appeared to have a limited range
of approximately 10 square
miles.
With the assistance of the
FCC, the Sheriff's Office was
able to determine the location of
the source of the broadcasts. A
search warrant was issued for
residences on Southeast 11th
Ave. Around 6:30 p.m. Wednes-
day, July 13, the search warrant
was executed. The radio equip-


ment was discovered and the
sheriff made the announcement
to listeners that the station was
going off the air.
At this time, the incident is
still under investigation. The
names of the radio station own-
ers and operators have not been
released.

Corps, SFWMD increase releases from Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE Water man-
agers for the Army Corps of Engi-
neers and the South Florida Water
Management District will increase
water releases from Lake Okee-
chobee starting Thursday at 7 a.m.
as a preemptive measure to slow
the rate of rise 'of Lake Okee-
chobee.
The current Lake elevation is
16.57 feet-NGVD and in Zone C of
the WSE (Water Supply and Envi-
ronmental) regulation schedule.
The current elevation is only 0.12
feet from Zone B. A week ago the
level was 16.29 feet NGVD. The
current rate of rise has already
been reduced to 0.03 feet/day.
This preemptive measure of
increasing releases is to reverse the
rate of rise of Lake Okeechobee
due to the current lake elevation


being unusually high for this time
of year. The releases will be transi-
tioned back to WSE regulation
schedule releases when the lake
recedes to 16.25 feet NGVD and
will maintain a downward trend.
These increased releases have
been approved by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineer's South Atlantic
Division.
The expected discharge from
the St. Lucie Lock and Dam (S-80)
on the St. Lucie Canal will be less
than a maximum of 8,500 and at
Moore Haven Lock and Dam (S-
77) on the Caloosahatchee River
less than a maximum of 9,300
cubic feet per second. The St.
Lucie Canal has historically had a
higher discharge capacity due to
design than the Caloosahatchee
River and at the current unusual

condition, it is necessary to utilize
this capacity.
Even though releases are being
increased above those made this
past week, the public will not be
impacted nor experience addition-
al high water levels as a result of
this action. The spillway operators
monitor and adjust the discharges
depending on local runoff, down-
stream conditions and changes in
the tidal cycle.
Inflow to the Lake remains high
from the Kissimmee, Istokpoga
and Fisheating Creek Basins.


The Herbert Hoover Dike, a
140-mile long flood control
embankment, surrounds the Lake.
The Corps' South Florida Opera-
tions Office regularly maintains
and inspects the dike as part of our
normal monitoring plan. The fre-
quency of inspections has
increased as a result of the lake
water level rise, although no prob-
lems have been found. Data col-
lected during these inspections are
evaluated against past perform-
ance of the dike and provide infor-
mation for preventative actions.

Platts Bluff
This is in regards t.o Platts Bluff, more specifically the public boat
ramp and rope swing. I have seen many people come there,
teenagers, adults, and even children as young as 2. If you go out
there and even glance around there is Trash everywhere! Beer bot-
tles, aluminum cans you name it then it's probably there. Alongside
that there is broken glass ever where, from the beer bottles I
assume. Even if you go into the water you still pick up glass in your
feet. I found as many as 10 pieces of glass in the water in only min-
utes. I believe that if the county would provide some sort of recy-
cling and trash pick up it would remain a lot cleaner. I called parks-
and recreation to see about this. They told me they couldn't afford
it. How sad is that? We can't even enjoy this land that the county has
let us use because of all the garbage. I believe if we could imple-
ment some sort of trash pickup/volunteer program maybe both
that people would notice and start picking up after themselves.
Please, for those of us who want to enjoy this piece of property let's
put together a volunteer program or ask the county to do trash pick-
up, something so we can enjoy it, our children can enjoy it and
there children can enjoy it and so on and so on.
Roofing scam
I had a new roof put on my park model after Jeanne by two
men. They did the roof and I paid them. It has leaked ever since,
worse than before, they did it. They won't answer their phones and
I leave messages and they won't call back. Who can I call? Editor's
note: You can make a complaint at the Okeechobee County Plan-
ning and Development Department. Call the county office 763-5548
for more information.)

Wooden benches for jurors
"Visited the new Judicial Complex during the open house arid
was most impressed with the facility and thank the Sheriff's people
for their guided tour. As we passed through the various areas of the
new building, the furnishings and set ups seem to be quite grand.
But we were very surprised and disappointed in the small size of
the court rooms and the seating capacity there but the Jury selec-
tion area leaves must to be desired. It appears the Judicial arena has
been very well taken care of, comfortable big chairs, nice tables,
granite counter tops, etc., but the citizenry will sit for 4 to 6 hours on
hard, wooden benches, similar to church pews, no seat pads, no
back support. This I feel is unacceptable. Who was responsible for
this decision? Why the uncomfortable pews for the citizens who
have come forth to do their civic duty? I, for one, will try to do any-
thing and everything possible to not be in the jury selection process
and have to sit on the wooden benches for many hours. This needs
to be rectified."

Terry Twowolves
Has anyone, heard from Terry Twowolves Dillon? If you have,
some of us would be interested in knowing how he and his family
are doing. When he left he said he would stay in touch. For those of
you who did not have the opportunity to read one of his many arti-
cles in the Okeechobee News, you have no idea what you missed. I
for one miss your articles and would like to hear from you. Wishing
you and yours all the best. May the sun shine on your face and the
wind be at your back for all your days to come.
Government programs
With any go\ ernrnent piogiram,you have some people whowill
take advantage and milk the system fofr"everything tIly can get.
That is what is going on with the FEMA business. Most folks take
help only until they get back on their feet, and they work very hard
to get back control of their own lives. But a few lazy slobs are happy
to just take the free housing as long as it lasts.

Teacher salaries
We keep talking about teacher salaries, but what are they teach-
ing? Go anywhere here in Okeechobee where children are present:
bowling alley, movie theatre, Wal-Mart, etc,. and you will hear the
most horrendous grammar. It is common to hear "I don't got noth-
ing", "I seen", "I ain't got this" or "I ain't got that", etc. The children
either aren't being taught the proper use of our language or aren't
paying attention to what is taught. To hear the use of language by
their parents and others here in Okeechobee shows that English
grammar hasn't been taught or paid attention to in quite some
time. I wonder what is going to happen to these kids when they go
to the coast looking for a job'and they tell the interviewer "I ain't got
no resume."

Job security
We pay city taxes for what good it does. I know they have job
security cleaning gutters and ditches out, which they don't seem to
do until storms approach. There seems to be many that need to be
done in thie city, which is not done. They do one block and then
they skip one and then they go do another area. "

Don't care about Chicago
When we get the new cable company can we get a station
besides Chicago? If they can give us Chicago why can't they give us
Miami or Orlando or Tampa. The last cable company we had
before we moved here gave us all of those and if this one can give
us Chicago it should be able to give one of those.

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.

We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.

We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot and
a return of the values of the American Revolution.

How are we doing?

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