address LDR changes
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
At their Thursday meeting, the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners will hear
from at least four speakers repre-
senting different causes, including
those issues surrounding the Tay-
lor Creek Lodge.
They will also' discuss changes
to the county land development
regulations, as well as the sale of
two houses to SHIP applicants.
The meeting is scheduled to
begin at 9 a.m. in the commission
chambers at the old courthouse,
304 N.W Second St.
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul May will address commission-
ers concerning hurricane shelters
for sex offenders/predators. He is
expected to refer to Department of
Corrections (DOC) regulations that
deal with the subject.
The commanding officer of the
Okeechobee Civil Air Patrol
squadron, Captain David Littlefield,
is scheduled to appear before the
commissioners to request funding
for the day-to-day operation of the
squadron.
Billy Hesch is once again on the
agenda to discuss the situation at
Taylor Creek Lodge. At the last
commission meeting, Ms. Hesch
addressed the situation of access to
the boat ramp.
At this meeting, she is expected
to address the situation of home-
owners who cannot get a permit to
move their mobile homes and RVs
from Taylor Creek Lodge because
of the age of the units.

Local optometrist helps


with eye exams in Peru


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
"I was a little afraid that we,
would not have a large enough
response", said Dr. William
Olivos regarding his recent trip to
Peru. "I was quite surprised at
the overwhelming response
when we got there."
The trip was funded by five
different sources Okeechobee
Rotary Club, Jupiter-Tequesta
Rotary Club, Rotary Club Inter-
national, Christ Fellowship
Church in West Palm Beach and
also Dr. Olivos' family founda-
tion, The Olive Branch Educa-
tional Foundation.
Dr. Olivos left for Lima, Peru,
on July 10 as part of a two week
trip along with a group of 30
American volunteers to provide
necessary eye exams and glasses


for residents in the small impov-
erished towns in the country.
Dr. Olivos stated that the first
week in Peru was all preparatory
work for the mission trip. He said
that he met with Rotary Club
members in Lima on July 12 to
discuss the details of the mission.
At the meeting, he found that the
Rotary Club in Lima would pro-
vide a grant-funded laboratory
that produces lenses and frames
in support of the mission to the
ruralvillage.
Dr. Olivos also told club mem-
bers that he met with the mayor
of, the small village outside of
Lima. After giving the mayor the
details of what their mission was
to accomplish, the mayor provid-
ed use of the municipal hall for
the doctors to set up their equip-
ment and to see patients.
"There was a flurry of activity


within the municipal building.
Workers were sweeping and
cleaning in preparation for the
vice president of the country of
Peru to visit their small village
municipal hall," said Dr. Olivos.
"It seems that the word about
our mission had gotten to the
vice president while he was on a
tour through the country and he
wanted to come to the village to
say thank you. The school band
from the small town was even
brought in to play at the vice
president's arrival."
He went on to explain that the
group conducted over 1,000 eye
exams.
"From July 18 through July
21, the group of volunteers,
including myself, saw 300
patients each day, provided a

newspapers published the same
pictures provided by the Interior
Ministry.


There has been no direct link
between the wanted men and the
bombings, even though at least
two security officials said the Pak-
istanis had flown into Sharm from
Cairo several days earlier.
"No Pakistani national was
involved in the terrorist attacks that
rocked Sharm el-Sheik late last Sat-
urday," the Egyptian Embassy in
Islamabad said in a statement.
Egypt's ambassador to Pak-
istan, Hussein Haridy, said he
informed the Pakistani govern-
ment by telephone late Monday of
the Egyptian conclusion.


pated.
"With thousands of Floridians
still working to recover from four
storms, it is inconceivable that
individuals would seek to illegally
profit from the 2004 hurricane sea-
son," said Gallagher, who oversees
the department. "Those who
choose to commit fraud and drive
up premiums will be prosecuted
to the fullest extent of the law."
Investigators found that Julio


Posters of the missing Pakistanis
were put up in Cairo. Officials now
say they are seeking the men for
illegally entering Egypt.
Two blasts rocked the popular
Naama Bay tourist strip, including
the suicide truck bomb attack at
the hotel. Two miles away, a third
truck bomb ravaged an area called
the Old Market, which is popular
with Egyptians.
The remains of another sus-
pected bomber were discovered at
the Old Market, and DNA tests
were being conducted, a security
official said.
The death toll stood at 88,
according to the head of the Sharm
el-Sheik hospital that treated the
victims, but Egypt's Health Ministry
has put it at 64. Hospitals said the
ministry count excludes some sets
of body parts.
South Sinai's governor said


Iriarte, a licensed public adjuster in
Miami, submitted falsified contrac-
tor agreements that caused over-
payment of claims by more than
20 percent.
Joyce Chandler, of Miami, is
accused of authoring a letter on
behalf of a Miami resident and rep-
resenting herself as the property
owner's minister, claiming the
home was destroyed as a result of
a tornado. This claim was denied


Monday that 17 of the dead were
non-Egyptians, including Western-
ers and citizens from other Arab
states. One American, Kristina
Miller, 27, of Las Vegas, was killed.
Meanwhile, 20 of Egypt's top
movie and music stars visited
Sharm on Tuesday, touring the
attack scenes and visiting some of
the hospitalized Egyptians.
"I am here to tell my people that
we shouldn't let terrorism have its
way," director Youssef Chahine
said while touring the gutted hotel.
"The people are very sad but they
are not afraid. It's not the first time
but it is the most vicious one."
Investigators are pursuing a
possible connection to October's
bombings in two Sinai resorts far-
ther north, Taba and Ras Shitan,
that killed 34 people, including
many Israelis. DNA from the sus-
pected bombers' remains were


and Chandler subsequently
acquired the property and filed a
hurricane claim for more than
$94,000 in property damage and
additional living expenses.
Two other individuals were
arrested for filing fraudulent claims
and are being charged with insur-
ance fraud and grand theft. Other
arrests are anticipated.

from the parents of five suspects
still at large from the Taba blasts.
The Sharm attacks had hall-
marks of other al-Qaida-style oper-
ations, near-simultaneous bomb-
ings using a mix of techniques,
including vehicle-borne and other
bombs.
Three groups claimed responsi-
bility for the attacks. One of the
groups warned in an Internet state-
ment Monday of a "total war"
unless "Jews and Christians leave
our country within 60 days." The
statement was signed by the Holy
Warriors of Egypt.
A conflicting claim was issued
Saturday by an al-Qaida-linked
group, the Abdullah Azzam
Brigades, which also claimed
responsibility for the October
bombings. None of the statements'
authenticity could be confirmed.

of fraud in insurance, including
health, life, auto, property and
workers' compensation insur-
ance. Anyone with information
about this case or another possible
fraud scheme should call the
department's Fraud Hotline at 1-
800-378-0445. A reward of up to
$25,000 may be offered for infor-
mation leading to an arrest and
conviction."


A third claim was posted Tues-
day on the Internet in the name of a
previously unknown militant
group purporting links to al-Qaida.
The statement said the group,
called Egyptian Tawhid and Jihad,
attacked the "Crusaders" in Sharm
on orders from al-Qaida leader
Osama bin Laden and his Egypt-
ian-born deputy Ayman al-Zawahri
"in support of our brothers in Iraq
and Afghanistan."
The claim, which was posted
on a militant Islamic Web site
where statements by the al-Qaida
terror network have previously
appeared, could not be independ-
ently authenticated. Tawhid and
Jihad is Arabic for monotheism
and holy war.
Associated Press reporter Chris
Torchia in Islamabad, Pakistan,
contributed to this report.

760 patients with eye glasses," he
told local Rotary members. "We
treated many of the residents for
glaucoma-related eye problems
and also saw children as young as
8 and 10 years of age with congeni-
tal cataracts."
Those patients, he stated,
were referred to surgeons at
nearby hospitals.
"None of the people had to
pay for the services that they
received and they were very
grateful for our help", he said.
In closing Dr. Olivos told the
group that at the end of their stay
a reception was given in honor of
the services that the volunteer
group had provided, and the vice
* president made a special point to
attend the reception to thank all
of the volunteers who worked on
the project.
Lastly, Dr. Olivos proposed
Project Insight to Rotarians. The
project will provide two free eye
exams and glasses each month to
local Okeechobee residents. The
services will be provided for
those residents who cannot
afford an eye exam or who have
no insurance, with services pro-
vided by Dr. Olivos at no charge.

Proposal protects Florida


X0611u01460% tdarn ci.Iijrite'vr


from new oil and gas leasing s.rt fi- 'n th. hurrncn<%-


WASHINGTON, D.C. Secre-
tary of the Interior Gale A. Norton
today confirmed that the Bush
Administration proposal for new
oil and gas leasing in the Gulf of
Mexico would not impact Florida
waters. With the Nation facing
unprecedented energy challenges,
Secretary of the Interior Gale A.
Norton today expressed her sup-
port for the proposed legislation
that would allow the Nation
greater access to new oil and natu-
ral gas resources on the outer con-
tinental shelf. At the same time it
would allow coastal states to ben-
efit from the royalties received
from oil and gas development off
their coasts.
"The President respects the
rights of states to determine what
Kind of activities can take place off
their coasts," said Norton. "Under
the Administration's proposal,
'Florida waters' would be deter-
mined for the first time using legal
principles upheld by the Supreme
Court in cases involving state
boundaries The Administration's
proposal will protect these Florida
waters from new oil and gas leas-
ing."
The President has committed
to the people of Florida that there
will be no new oil and gas leasing
offshore Florida and this proposal
does not provide for any new leas-
ing in Florida's waters. In addition,
Norton reiterated that no new
areas would be opened for leasing
-within 100 -miles of the Florida
coast. "This proposal allows us to
continue our commitment not to


lease in the area known as 'the
stovepipe,'" she said.
The proposal allows for leasing
a portion of the offshore area
known as "the Bulge," originally
approved for leasing by the Clinton
administration and not under
moratorium, and a deepwater
area south of the "Bulge."
The proposal also benefits
existing offshore energy producing
states by allowing them to share
revenues from areas of new leas-
ing offshore Louisiana and Alaska.
In the Gulf of Mexico, this proposal
contemplates new areas in the
Eastern Gulf planning area that fall
within Louisiana's seaward
boundaries and that are more than
100 miles offshore.
Under the legally accepted prin-
ciple of "equidistance" used in the
drawing of seaward lateral bound-
aries, the portions where new leas-
ing would occur are off the coast
of Louisiana, not Florida. At the
nearest point, the area is well over
100 miles from any point on the
Florida coastline and more than
250 miles from the west coast of
the Florida peninsula. The deep-
water areas are even further away,
in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico.
The draft is consistent with the
Administration's pledge to only
, allow new oil and gas leasing off of
states that express support for it.
"The Administration believes
that development of these
unleased offshore areas should be
a partnership between the federal
government and the states," said
Norton. "States that support new


development in these areas should
benefit financially by sharing in the
royalties from lease sales, which
could be used for important needs
such as wetlands restoration and
environmental protection."
In 2001, the Senate over-
whelmingly rejected a proposal to
prohibit leasing in portions of this
Eastern gulf area. This was a bipar-
tisan vote. Sen. Dianne Feinstein,
D-Calif., said at the time: "It is 100
miles off the coast. If you can't drill
100 miles out to sea, I don't know
where you can drill."
The United States is facing
unprecedented oil and gas prices.
Motorists are paying $2.30 a gallon
for gas. Imports have risen sharply
over the last two decades while
our domestic production has fall-
en. The Nation currently imports
nearly 60 percent of the petroleum
it uses. "We are seeing the effect of
this growing imbalance in the ris-
ing cost of driving our cars, heating
and cooling our homes, and keep-
ing manufacturing jobs in the Unit-
ed States," said Norton.
Offshore energy development
has a phenomenal safety record.
Since 1975, the offshore industry
has a safety record of 99.999 per-
cent meaning that only .0001 per-
cent of the oil produced has been
spilled. In the past 35 years, there
has not been a significant oil spill
from a platform in federal waters.
In fact, natural cracks in the
seabed release more than 150
times the amount of oil into the
Gulf than is spilled from offshore
platforms.

hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or sending e-mail
to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
SEA CADETS: I enjoyed the article on the Sea Cadets in the paper. It
is amazing all the things those kids get to do SCUBA training, flight
school, photojournalism school. It makes me wish I was a teenager
again. I recently paid more than $200 to take SCUBA lessons. Imagine
getting your SCUBA certification as a teenager. This sounds like a terrif-
ic program -what a great opportunity for our young people. And they
even get high school credit you can't beat that.

HIGHWAY 98: When is the work on State Road 70 near Highway 98
going to be finished? They have cut off use of the turn lane and traffic is
terrible at that intersection. This has gone on for months and no one
seems to be doing any work on that roadway. I never see workers
there.

NO SPEAK OUT?: What happened to Speak Out? It's my favorite
part of the paper. I tried to call and didn't get an answer.
Editor's note: The Speak Out answer machine was broken. We
replaced it but the new machine did not function property so we are
replacing that one. As you discovered, you can make Speak Out com-
ments online by posting on our Okeechobee City/County issues blog
at http://newsblog.info/0904/.

CIVIL AIR PATROL: I want to reply to the person who asked if we
need Civil Air Patrol when we already have an ROTC program at the
high school. A lot of people think Civil Air Patrol is just an ROTC pro-
gram. It is not. Adults join too and are involved with community serv-
ice projects and help during emergencies. I think we do need Civil Air
Patrol here and I am glad someone is starting a local chapter again.

Letter to the Editor


Where are you?
I volunteer for a non-profit
organization named My Aunt's
House. It's also known as The
Closet.
This organization was co-
founded by Reba Folsom. She
has dedicated a large part of her
life to foster children and chil-
dren of need and their fami-
lies in Okeechobee.
We provide 'gently used'
clothes, shoes, etc., for children
and their families. We also pro-
vide these items for foster chil-
dren as they move through this
word one home at a time.-
We have received many
donations of gently worn items
from families in our community.
We appreciate everything we
have received. Also, a couple
churches have donated, and we
thank them.
But the businesses where
are you? This is a non-profit, vol-
unteer, no-money-exchanged
organization for the needy chil-
dren in our Okeechobee com-
munity.
Our only expense is our rent
and electricity $700 a month.
All other expenses are absorbed
by Reba, myself or an occasional
$25 check from a family or


church group.
Business men and women,
let's get some good old fash-
ioned competition going. As an
example: Mr. Realtor says "I'll
pay for their January expenses if
you, Mr. Banker, will pay for Feb-
ruary."
Or how about competition
between contractors, restau-
rants, plumbers, etc.?
Come on businesses, give it
up! Let's help The Closet at My
Aunt's House help the less fortu-
nate kids in our area. Also, don't
forget that contributions are a
great write-off.
For information you can call
Reba Folsom at (863) 634-2306
or myself, Judy Watts, at (863)
634-377.
Better yet, come to The Closet
and take a tour of our house
located at 111N.E. Second St.,
across the street from CVS to the
north. We are in the back of the
beautiful yellow house. Back
door friends are the best.
Also, another volunteer in
The Closet would be super. It's a
very rewarding way to spend
your day.

Judy Watts,
foster mom,
and volunteer


By Eric Kopp
We are still trying to dig up
information concerning the boat
ramp on Taylor Creek that is locat-
ed near the locks. But, we've hit a
brickwall.
As you, may remember, the
Taylor Creek Lodge and the land
located on the other side of Taylor
Creek were sold recently. Includ-
ed in that sale was the boat ramp.
Since the property was sold to a
private concern, the ramp is being
closed to use by the public due to
potential liability issues."
This is where you, our readers,
can help.
We are trying to determine
when that boat ramp was built,
and who built it. From what we've
been able to ascertain, the ramp
was built sometime between
1938 and 1952 and that's as
close as we can get.
So what we're asking is this:
do you know when the ramp was
built? Or, do you know someone
who might be able to answer this
question for us?
We would like to narrow the
possible date down to at least a
year so that we can research pub-
lic records and back issues, of the
Okeechobee News, available on
microfilm at the Okeechobee
Public Library.
If you have any information
that will help us, we ask that you
let us know by contacting Lorna
Jablonski. at


ljablonski@newszap.com. Or,
you can reach her by calling (863)
763-3134.
We feel this information is crit-
ical to our continued coverage of
this issue.
QID
Readers have noticed that
Speak Out has been missing from
some newspapers recently. We
have not had good luck with
answering machine lately. Last
week, the answering machine on
the Speak Out line stopped work-
ing. We replaced it, but also had
some difficulty with the replace-
ment machine not working prop-
erly.
Some readers have discovered
that there are other ways to get
comments on Speak Out. We take
comments via e-mail to okee-
news@newszap.com. You can
also put Speak Out comments on
our website, using the Okee-
chobee City and County issues
blog at http://newsblog.info/0904.
There are advantages to'post-
ing comments on the blog. Your
entire comment is posted as you
write it, while comments in the
paper may be edited for length.
The "preview" option allows you
to read over your comment and
edit it before you post it.
Posting on the blog gets your
comment published online-
immediately so others can
respond without waiting until the
comment is the newspaper.

Left to right are Twila Valentine, Betty Chandler
Williamson and Anna Jane O'Steen at book signing
event held at what was then known as Barnett Bank. This
photo was taken in December of 1994. Mrs. Valentine
and Mrs. Williamson were the authors of "Strolling Down
Country Roads". In the right corner of the photo is Mrs.
O'Steen's lollipop tree. Plans are currently under way by
the Okeechobee Historical Society to reprint the book
"Strolling Down Country Roads". Recent interest in buy-
ing a copy of the book has been increasing, and the His-
torical Society needs an estimate of the number of
books to order. The expected cost is $35 to $40 per copy,
and the society hopes to have the books available by
Christmas. If you are interested in buying a copy of the
book send your name, address and telephone number
to: Betty C. Williamson, P.O. Box 249, Okeechobee, Fla.,

will be notified when the books are available. You are
asked to send your information to Mrs. Williamson soon.

Special to the Okeechobee News/K. Johns
Mr. Keith Blackwell, high school teacher, joins in the fun on
opposite day at the First Indian Baptist Academy located on


the Brighton Reservation.
We will
miss you
On behalf of most, if not all,
the parents and every student
who has attended the First Indi-
an Baptist Academy we would
like to send our gratitude and
express our sorrow upon hear-
ing the news that high school
teacher, Mr. Keith Blackwell and
the school's principal, Mrs.
Crista Blackwell will not be
returning for the upcoming
school year.
Around three or four years
ago, the Blackwells came to the
church school and began to
work miracles with our children.
While the Blackwells were at the
academy, the student enrollment
tripled and the academy became
a great school. Mrs. Blackwell
led First Indian Baptist Academy
towards a goal that no one
thought it would achieve. The
school earned candidate status
for public and private school
accreditation with FACCs and
SACS.
Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell, with
their three sons, dedicated their
lives to helping our children.
They lived, worked and played
for our children and to many


kids out at the Brighton Reserva-
tion that meant something posi-
tive. It made a good impact espe-
cially on the older children
because they knew that the
Blackwells truly believed in each
one of them and knew that each
child and teen could achieve
their dreams with dedication
and an education.
Many of our kids went from
wearing black hoods and hating
school to showing a smiling
face, singing in chapel, and
wanting to go to school so they
could learn that anything is a
true miracle!
As stated before, we the stu-
dents and parents are truly going
to miss Mr. and Mrs. Blackwell.
We want them to know that
there will always be a special
place in many of our lives for
them.
If we know Mrs. Blackwell,
she will probably start crying
when she reads this, just like she
did every time she talked about
the kids and how important she
feels they are.
Thank you Mrs. and Mrs.
Blackwell for always caring and
believing! We are truly going to
miss you both!
K. Johns,
F.I.B.A. parent
