Union negotiations conclude


Teacher's union
and school board
negotiate for 5 hours
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News '
A bargaining process that
began June 1 reached its conclu-
sion at 10 p.m. Friday night, Aug.
5 when representatives of the
Okeechobee County School
Board and the Okeechobee
County Education Association
reached agreement on new
three-year contracts for teachers
and non-instructional or classi-
fied employees.


Teachers and non-instruction-
al or classified personnel which
include bus drivers, maintenance
and administrative personnel -
are coved under separate con-
tracts. Both contracts were nego-
tiated simultaneously.
The school system employs
approximately 470 teachers and
438 classified workers.
Under the proposed instruc-
tional contract beginning teach-
ers would start out at $31,400.
The highest any teacher would
make is $51,500. There is also a
$2,000 supplement for teachers
with Master's Degrees, and an
extra $3,000 for those with Spe-
cialist Degrees. A teacher with a


doctorate would earn an addi-
tional $4,000.
There are 21 different pay
scales for the various types of
classified workers. Basically,
each step on each pay schedule
would be increased 3.03 percent.
"I think we have produced a
good product," Sam Lee, the
school board's chief negotiator
stated at the conclusion of Friday
evening's five hour bargaining
session.
"I think we have done some
good things here," he added.
Mr. Lee noted that in collec-
tive bargaining, it is important to
see the other side's perspective.


Negotiators on both sides of
the table were kept in a good
humor by Mr. Lee's objectiveness
and sense of humor. Often times
during the long process school
board members jokingly asked
him which side he was repre-
senting.
"It was truly a negotiating
process," said union president
Candy Walker.
"They .gave some, we gave
some. They gained some, we
gained some."
She said the union was sur-
prised at the favorable treatment
received by some of their propos-
als.


Supertintendent of Schools
Dr. Patricia Cooper said she was
"absolutely pleased" with the
outcome of the talks. She stated
that the tone and environment of
the talks were positive.
Probably the most far-reach-
ing decision made was that a task
force consisting of two school
board representatives and two
union members would revise the
salary schedule. This task force
would meet throughout the
school year and work to elimi-
nate the inequalities in the pres-
ent teacher pay schedule.

Insurance tips
for college students
TALLAHASSEE In a few
weeks, nearly 40,000 high
school graduates in Florida
will head off to college for the
first time. Between deciding
where to live and what class-
es to take, one important
aspect of life after high.school
is regularly overlooked by col-
lege-bound students and
their parents: insurance.
According to the Florida
Association of Insurance
Agents, more than 80 percent
of students who rent during
the school year .might not
have enough insurance to
protect their personal proper-
ty, such as computers and
stereos.

A special place to call home


By MaiyAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
LAKEPORT When people
decided to settle somewhere,
"somewhere" is a place, just a
place, but something makes it
special enough to call home.
Lake Okeechobee is such a
place.
Edward Kunkel came to visit
in 1914"with friends, Mr. and
Mrs. George Shrimp, who were
in the process of building a bun-
galow in Lakeport. Their boat,
also called Lakeport, brought
the party from Fort Lauderdale.
Lakeport was then a settlement
of "about forty families" on the
shore of Lake Okeechobee in


1914. Moore Haven, remember,
wasn't settled until 1915. Also in
1915, a band of Japanese farm-
ers, including Madame and
Papa Watanabe (who later ran
the Watanabe Hotel) walked up
the west shore of the Lake to
grow vegetables at "Sand Cut",
which later became Clewiston.
Mr. Kunkel said his first sight
of Lakeport was a "nice sandy
beach, about forty miles in
length," They docked, and after
driving by car about three-
fourths of a mile back from the
shore saw the beginnings of the
town. "When I came to the
town I found our why they went
back so far. I am not exaggerat-
ing when I say that it is one of


the most beautiful places in the
state." "One of the most beauti-
ful attractions of the place are
the palms. They make a good
shade and yet are tall enough to
allow the air to circulate freely."
Lumber is on the ground for a
church and a school," his
description takes you right back
there in 1914, three years before
Okeechobee became a town.
Meanwhile the settlers lived
in tents .and made do. Many
were college graduates and all
worked hard. They had a
sawmill running and built
homes as fast as the lumber
See History -Page 2


Special to Independent Newspapers of Florida/
University of South Florida Ubraries
In 1914, Edward Hetzel Kunkel visited Lakeport with his friends
Mr. and Mrs. George Shrimp, who were building a bungalow
there. This group of settlers posed with their car on the shore
of the Lake.

The task force would present
its findings to next year's bargain-
ing team.
The new contracts will be for
three years. However, at the end
of each school year during that
time, salaries can be renegotiated
and a few changes can be made
to the language of the contracts.
At a previous bargaining ses-
sion, Florida Education Associa-
tion's Treasure Coast Service Unit
Director Diane Falvo, who has
participated in the bargaining,
said that a survey of union mem-
bers indicated that they wanted
the inequalities in the pay sched-
ule phased out.


Assistant Superintendent of
Schools Lee Dixon said there
were two reasons for the unequal
differences in pay steps. He said
that over the years more money
was added to the upper steps in
an effort to keep experienced
teachers. This has resulted in "bal-
loon steps" at the top of the pay
scale. The other reason he cited
was adding money to the starting
steps to attract new teachers.
Through the years, differing
amounts of money were added to
different steps on the pay scale,
making disproportionate jumps
between some steps.
One sticking point in the talks
was the firing of probationary
employees. After lengthy discus-
sion the union agreed to the pres-
ent contract language, But Ms.


Walker said it might be brought
up against at next year's negotia-
tions.
The problem of firing proba-
tionary employees came up in the
April school board meeting when
the superintendent recommend-
ed termination of a probationary
employee who had been
employed as a bus driver and as a
food service attendant.
The probation period was for
three years and the employee in
question had been employed by
the school system a little over two
years when they were terminated.
While admitting that the con-
tract gave the school board the
right to fire a probationary
employee, Ms. Falvo did not think
it was fair to fire an employee
without giving them a chance to


respond. She contended that let-
ting a person go without telling
them the reason was not right.
At that meeting, the school
board was not persuaded by her
arguments.
"We are not talking about
rightness or morality, we are talk-
ing about a contract," stated
board attorney Tom Conely.
Mr. Dixon defended the deci-
sion saying it was made by com-
petent personnel.
Until the contracts are ratified
by union members and the
school board, teachers and classi-
fied personnel will continue to
work under the old contracts that
expired on June 30.
Since the new contract was a
collaborative effort between the
school board and the teacher's


union, Ms. Walker proposed that
a two-person team made of one
school board official and one
teacher go around to the schools
in the coming week to explain the
new contracts.

Union members will then vote
on the contracts Aug. 15.

If the vote is favorable, the
school board is expected to ratify
the new contacts at their Aug. 16
meeting.

Friday night's agreement
ended a negotiation process that
began on June 1 when both sides
presented written proposals for
the new contracts. That was fol-
lowed by meetings on June 9,
June 13, June 29, June 30, July 29
and July 30.

Make a difference with a career in nursing


If you have thought about a
career in nursing and are motivat-
ed by a desire to make a differ-
ence in people's lives, it is not too
soon to prepare to earn your
Associate in Science degree in
Nursing, ADN, or gain the educa-
tion necessary for Practical Nurs-
ing licensure, LPN; from Indian
River Community College. A
Nursing Information Session will
be held on Thursday, Aug. 18 at 4
p.m. in the Health Science Center
on the Main Campus in Fort
Pierce. The application deadline
for both programs is August 19 for
spring 2006.
The two-year associate degree
Nursing Program at Indian River
Community College, prepares
students with the training neces-
sary to sit for your licensure exam
to become a registered nurse.
Classes in the ADN program meet
three to four days a week for four
to12 hours per day generally
beginning at 8 a.m. with clinicals
normally meeting in the evenings.
Seats are available in an Internet
option for the theory portion of
the nursing instruction. A transi-
tion option is also available for
LPNs, paramedics and respiratory


therapists. Registered nurses pro-
vide hands-on care to patients
daily and are expected to become
proficient in the knowledge nec-
essary to diagnose, monitor, edu-
cate, manage and supervise.
Nurses represent a critical com-
ponent of the health care team.
The full-time Practical Nursing
program at IRCC is a one-year cer-
tificate program leading to the
opportunity to apply for the
National Council Licensure
Examination for Practical Nurses,
NCLEX-PN.
The spring program'is offered
on the Main Campus in Ft. Pierce
during the day on a full-time basis
with students attending classes
approximately 35 hours per
week. A sample of the expected
schedule may include classes
held Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.
until 4 p.m and clinical from 6:45
a.m. until 5 p.m. LPNs are trained
to perform under the direction of
doctors and registered nurses in
both simple and complex med-
ical situations in a variety of health
care settings.
IRCC graduates approximately
100 RNs and more than 70 LPNs
annually and thanks to the Trea-


sure Coast Hospital Consortium,
IRCC enjoys a mutually beneficial
working relationship with hospi-
tal partners, Lawnwood Regional
Medical Center, Martin Memorial
Hospital, Raulerson Hospital, St.
Lucie Medical Center, and Indian
River Memorial Hospital where
skilled graduates move immedi-
ately in to desirable employment.
State trends, according to the
Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation present a mean wage
for RNs at more than $50,000 and
LPNs at more than $33,000.
IRCC's Assistant Dean of Health
Science Jane Cebelak said the
current profile of the nursing stu-
dent is younger and culturally
diverse and is a good sign for the
growing health care demands in
Florida. Our nursing students are
attracted to the field by a sense of
what they are doing is making a
difference.
In addition to the registered
nursing and licensed practical
nursing professions, the August
18 Nursing Information Session
will provide program details on
patient care technician, and nurs-
ing assistant programs at IRCC.

Insurance tips for college students


TALLAHASSEE In a few
weeks, nearly 40,000 high school
graduates in Florida will head off
to college for the first time.
Between deciding where to live
and what classes to take, one
important aspect of life after high
school is regularly overlooked by
college-bound students and their
parents: insurance.
According to the Florida Asso-
ciation of Insurance Agents, more
than 80 percent of students who
rent during the school year might
not have enough insurance to
protect their personal property,
such as computers and stereos.
"Parents and students often
don't think about getting enter
insurance until after the first loss,"
said Scott Johnson, executive vice
president of FAIA. "A good rm-

puter and peripherals can costs
thousands of dollars, and for a
college student, that's an invest-
ment worth insuring."
Florida's "Trusted Choice"
independent agents offer the fol-
lowing tips to protect college-
bound students and their parents:
Consider renters insurance:.

A typical policy, providing $15,000
in personal property coverage
and about $100,000 in liability
protection, costs about $100 to
$150 a year. The liability coverage
is for negligence that injures
someone else and similar law-
suits should someone get hurt in
the student's apartment.
Make sure you know what
your health insurance covers:
Health insurance is a tricky issue
for college-bound students and
their parents. Many parents and
students are not always aware
that once students are older than
age 18, they can often be covered
by a parent's health insurance
only if the students are in school
full-time. And once a student
reaches age 23, that student will
usually lose coverage under a par-
ent's policy, regardless of enroll-
ment status. But, policies differ
widely.
A recent "Trusted Choice" sur-
vey revealed that 84 percent of


college students and their parents
either don't know or mistakenly
believe that the student's health
insurance will cover the student
when he or she travels or studies
abroad. In fact, many health
insurance policies limit health
coverage to the U.S.
Inventory belongings: Stu-
dents should make a list of per-
sonal belongings they are taking
to school and keep that list in a
safe place in case of theft or dam-
age. The list should include
"insurable" items such as elec-
tronics, jewelry and other items of
value. Parents should have-an off-
site copy of the list.
FAIA Trusted Choice agencies
are independent insurance and
financial services firms that offer
consumers a broader selection of
options by representing several
insurers or companies. These
firms are part of a national affilia-
tion and operate under a pledge
of superior customer service.

To Pam's Pet Salon Customers:
After much thought, I've decided to sell my business and take
some time off. With my husband's recent retirement last month, I
believe this is God's will and timing. I love my customers and
their dogs, and consider them extended family. Many friendships
have been formed over the years with other animal lovers.
I will continue to work part-time at the salon, along side the
new owner, Trish Neufer, and of course Annie (ol'faithful). I'd like
to send out a big hug and thank you to all my loyal customers.
I appreciate you guys with all my heart.

Okeechobee News/John Williams

Looking Back ...
The Kissimmee River Valley Farmer's Market drew local people from the agricultural community, as well as business and
civic leaders, to a barbecue that celebrated the opening of the market. The market was one of the moves toward expand-
ing into a peacetime economy after WWII. The market opened on April 14, 1948, and according to a report in the Okee-
chobee News more than 1,000 people attended and watched as the first vegetables were sold through the market.
Approximately 1,800 boxes of tomatoes were sold during the afternoon to buyers from the northern markets. This photo
also appears in the book "Strolling Down Country Roads" by Twila Valentine and Betty Chandler Williamson. Plans are
currently under way by the Okeechobee Historical Society to reprint the book "Strolling Down Country Roads". Recent
interest in buying a copy of the book has been increasing, and the Historical 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 Christ-
mas. 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., 34973. This will not obligate you to buy the book, but you will be notified
when the books are available. You are asked to send your information to Mrs. Williamson soon. Do you have any old
photos of the Okeechobee area or of Okeechobee citizens? If so, bring them by the Okeechobee News office, 107 S.W.
17th St., and we can copy them while you wait. Or, you can e-mail the photo and information about the photo to okee-
news@okeechobee.com.

Dress code for
2005-2006
Students are expected to come
to school well groomed and neatly
dressed. The way you dress is a
reflection of the way that you feel
about yourself and the way that
others view you. Keep in mind the
following regulations and tips as
you prepare to come to school
each day..
1. Pants, shorts, and skirts must
be worn at the natural waist line,
not showing underwear, and must
be of finger tip length. Skirts, shorts
and dresses with slits must cover
the upper leg as measured by fin-
ger tip length or 3 inches above the
knee, whichever is longer. Spandex
and bicycle style pants or shorts
and pajamas are not acceptable.
2. Backless shoes may be worn
during regular classes although we
do not recommend them as they
can be hazardous in crowded hall-
ways.
3. Shirts must be long enough to
tuck in and cover all skin even
when both arms are raised straight
above the head, with full sleeves
completely covering the shoulders,
and made of non-see-through fab-
ric. See-through blouses, shirts
with spaghetti straps or bare
midriffs, tank tops, sleeveless shirts
without collars, and shirts with low
necklines are not acceptable. If a
student wears a see through shirt
over another shirt, the shirt must be
legal.
4. Clothes containing alcohol,
tobacco, or drug logos, images
identified as gang related, or
images of people scantily clad may
not be worn.
5. Hair color, jewelry and acces-
sories that cause distractions, dis-
ruptions or pose a safety hazard
may not be worn.
6. Clear or mesh backpacks
may be used to carry books to and
from school. Backpacks and purs-
es are not permitted in classrooms.
If clothing or accessories cause
a disruption or distraction to the
classroom setting, causes one to be
unable to participate in classroom
activities (including PE), cause a
distraction or disruption in the tran-
sition between classes, or poses a
safety hazard at any time during the
school day, the items will be deter-
mined to be inappropriate.

SAC meeting
The Yearling School Advisory
Council will meet Tuesday, Aug. 10
at 4 p.m. to discuss our School
Improvement Plan.
Attention all students wanting to
try out for Yearling Athletic Teams
this season!
Volleyball and Soccer tryouts
will take place Aug. 15,16, and pos-
sibly 17th if necessary. You can not
tryout without a physical turned in
on an FHSAA form. You can pick up
a form at the Yearling office or see
Coach Rios, Coach Conrad, or
Coach Owen for a form. Any stu-
dent who wants to participate in
any open gyms for any sport must
also have a physical turned in
before they can participate. Stu-
dent-athletes must carry a mini-
mum of a 2.0 grade point average.
This minimum is set by the state,
but Yearling athletes can do much
better. Tryouts will only be open to
students and coaches, this helps
take pressure off of the student and
also allows the coaching staff to
focus on every individual without
distractions. This year has the
potential of being one of the great-
est years in Yearling history both in


the classroom and on the playing
field. We hope to see you at tryouts,
on the court, or in the bleachers.
Welcome to the Yearling Family -

Well, the calf market looks
like it has fully rebounded from
being off the last couple of
weeks. Calves were anywhere
from $3 to $10 higher. Cows and
bulls were $1 to $2 higher. We
keep thinking any day now


we're goona have some huge
runs, but it's been staying
around 3,000 to 3,500 for the
two days. If numbers don't turn
up state wide, that could be
good for prices. We have 50
head of X-bred cows for sale, call
(863) 763-3127. Top calf price
goes .to Howard Cattle of
Immokalee with a high price of
$2.30. Top cow price goes to Dry
Lake Dairy of Okeechobee with
a high price of $58.

Disaster assistance programs to end soon


GAINESVILLE The sign-up
period for current Florida Hurri-
cane Disaster Assistance Pro-
grams offered by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture will
end Sept. 9, said Farm Service
Agency State Executive Director
Kevin Kelley.
Three USDA programs
administered by the Farm Ser-
vice Agency (FSA) were initiated
last year to provide special disas-
ter relief to producers who suf-
fered agricultural losses and
damage as a result of Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and/or Jeanne
during August and Sept. of 2004.
These three programs are the
Florida Citrus Disaster Program;
the Florida Nursery Crop Disas-
ter Program; and the Florida
Vegetable, Fruit and Tropical
Fruit Disaster Program, consist-
ing of plasticulture, other vegeta-
bles and tropical fruit.
"What we want to make sure
producers understand is that the
sign-up end date applies only to
taking initial applications for the
programs. Supporting docu-
mentation may be submitted at
a later date, but farmers wanting
assistance under these pro-
grams must submit their appli-
cation to FSA offices no later
than Sept. 9," said Kelley.
Payments for this assistance
are authorized under Section 32
of the Agricultural Adjustment
Act of Aug. 24, 1935, which
allows the Secretary of Agricul-
ture to implement programs to
help restore producers' purchas-
ing power.
The Florida Citrus Disaster
Program sign-up began Oct. 5,
2004. Sign-up for the Florida
Srsery Crop Di,,aster Program
S the Flhrida kegetable, Fruit'
anTropical Fruii [)Daster-Pro-
gram began Oct. 20, 2004.
Producers in the following 56
presidential disaster-declared
counties may be eligible for pay-
ments depending on the type of
losses due to Hurricanes
Charley, Frances and/or Jeanne
(if other counties receive the
same declaration for these
storms, they will also become
eligible): Alachua, Baker, Brad-
ford, Brevard, Broward, Char-
lotte, Citrus, Clay, Collier,
Columbia, DeSoto, Dixie, Duval,
Flagler, Gadsden, Gilchrist,
Glades, Hamilton, Hardee,
Hendry, Hernando, Highlands,
Hillsborough, Indian River, Jef-
ferson, Lafayette, Lake, Lee,
Leon, Levy, Liberty, Madison,
Manatee, Marion, Martin,
Miami-Dade, Monroe, Nassau,
Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola,
Palm Beach, Pasco, Pinellas,
Polk, Putnam, Sarasota, Semi-
nole, St. Johns, St. -Lucie,
Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor,
* Union, Volusia, Wakulla.
"We are doing everything we
can to help farmers who were
affected by the hurricanes," said
Kelley. "FSA employees are visit-
ing farms, meeting with produc-
ers and teaming up with local
officials to ensure that we
address the needs of the agricul-
tural community. Farmers need
our immediate assistance, and
we want to be sure producers
are informed of the types of
emergency benefits available
and how to apply for our pro-
grams."
.Details on the 2004 Florida
Hurricane Disaster Assistance
Programs follow:

Florida Citrus
Disaster Program
As part of the Florida Citrus
Disaster Program, citrus produc-
ers will be reimbursed on a per-
acre basis for each eligible
grove. Payments will be based
on the severity of destruction in
four tiers as determined by the
path of the storms and damage
estimates. Each band was estab-
lished at the national level and is
being provided to each FSA
County Office. The delineations
on the map provided shall be
used to assist producers during
the sign-up period.
The formula will take into
account various levels of losses
generally correlating to the dis-
tance from the eyes of the hurri-
canes, the average production
loss, tree loss, and rehabilitation
and cleanup costs. Fruit from the
groves must have been market-


ed in both 2003 and 2004.

Nursery Crop
Disaster Program
Applicants for the Florida
Nursery Crop Disaster Program
must certify the number of nurs-
ery or fernery acres eligible for
cleanup assistance. Cleanup
consists of debris removal and
associated activity. Eligible acres
are those in which a minimum
of $250 per acre in expenses are
needed to restore the area. The
payment rate for producers cov-
ered by insurance or Noninsured
Crop Disaster Assistance Pro-
gram (NAP) on any nursery or
ferns in the county is 25 percent
of the actual dollar value of
inventory loss and a flat rate of
$250 per eligible acre for
cleanup. The program also
includes plasticulture, which
refers to production practices for
fruit or vegetables where the soil
has been-. bedded, fumigated,
fertilized, drip tape or other irri-
gation systems installed, and
covered with plastic mulch. Pro-
ducers must have suffered a
minimum of 50 percent loss to
be eligible for payments.

Vegetable, Fruit
Disaster Program
The Florida Vegetable, Fruit
and Tropical Fruit Disaster Pro-


gram provide assistance for veg-
etable, fruit and tropical fruit
producers. A producer must cer-
tify to a minimum of 50 percent
loss in production or plant popu-
lation, as applicable, to be eligi-
ble for payments. Eligible disas-
ter losses under this program
are:
plasticulture (fruit and veg-
etable).
tropical fruit (carambola,
longan, lychee, and mangos).
vegetables (other than plas-
ticulture).
Payments for plasticulture
losses will be made in three cat-
egories based on the amount of
investment and require a mini-
mum of a 50 percent loss in plas-
tic/plant population.

Payment limitation
Each producer's payment is
limited to one $80,000 limitation
for payments subject to limita-
tion under these programs. Pay-
ment rates will be 5 percent less
for producers who did not
obtain Federal Crop Insurance,
which is available from the Risk
Management Agency, or on cov-
erage under NAP, which is avail-
able from the Farm Service
Agency. Similar to a number of
other USDA programs, pay-
ments will not be available for
producers whose adjusted gross
income is $2.5 million or higher,

unless 75 percent or more is
derived from farming and
forestry. In addition, producers
will be required to agree to pur-
chase crop insurance or NAP
coverage for next available cov-
erage period for the crop. Other
conditions will apply.
FSA also has the following
programs to assist producers in
the hurricane-ravaged areas of
Florida:
Noninsured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program
Disaster Debt Set-Aside Pro-
gram
Emergency Loans
Emergency Conservation
Program
"I encourage producers to
contact our local FSA office or
USDA Service Center for ques-
tions regarding available disaster
assistance programs," said Kel-
ley. Emergency Program Sum-
mary Fact Sheets are available at
all local County FSA Offices and
have also been shared with the
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency to help inform
Florida farmers of available FSA
assistance. If you are unable to
reach an FSA county office due
to office closure, call the Florida
State Office at (352) 379-4500.

Motorists: Be on alert!


TAMPA As students
return to school, AAA Auto
Club South reminds motorists
to slow down and watch out
for school-age pedestrians.
Back to school also means that
AAA School Safety Patrollers
will take their posts, working
with adult school crossing
guards and teachers to ensure
a safe route to and from school
for elementary school-age chil-
dren.
"Children get caught up in
the excitement of back-to-
school and forget to watch for
vehicles," said Kevin Bakewell,
senior vice president of AAA
Auto Club South. .To aid
school-age pedestrians in get-
ting to school and back home
safely, we equip more than
50,000 School Safety Patrollers
who carry out their duties each
and every day of the school
year."
Many youngsters have trou-
ble making accurate" judg-
ments about traffic speed and
distance, so drivers need to be
particularly aware. Almost one-
fifth (18 percent) of all children
14 years of age and younger
who die in motor vehicle crash-
es and 24 percent of children
from the same age group who
are injured in motor vehicle


crashes are pedestrians,
according to the National High-
way Traffic Safety Administra-
tion.
AAA's School's Open -Drive
Carefully campaign encour-
ages motorists to stay alert in
areas where children are pres-
ent, paying special attention
during the morning and after-
noon hours while children are
going to and from school. Dri-
vers should look out for chil-
dren who may dart out into the
street near school zones, play-
grounds, bus stops and in
neighborhoods. Children can
be especially vulnerable in
areas with heavy traffic vol-
ume, parked vehicles on the
street, higher posted speed lim-
its and few pedestrian-control
devices.
As part of the School's Open
Drive Carefully campaign.
AAA Auto Club South offers
drivers the following tips to
keep children safe:
Slow down in or near
school and residential areas
and be sure to come to a com-
plete stop in all intersections.
Drive with your headlights
on even during the day so
children and other drivers can
see you.
Look for clues such as


AAA School Safety Patrollers,
crossing guards, bicycles and
playgrounds which indicate
children could be in the area.
e Scan between parked cars
and other objects for signs that
children could can into the
road.
Practice extra caution in
adverse weather conditions.
Pay particular attention
near schools during the morn-
ing and afternoon hours.
Always stop for school
buses that are loading and
unloading students.
Treat the school bus as a
school zone and slow down!
"Drivers should always be
aware of their surroundings,
but especially around chil-
dren," added Bakewell.
"Remember: school's open -
drive carefully-"
AAA has been a proud spon-
sor of the School Safety Patrol
program for the past 85 years.
AAA Auto Club South is the
third largest affiliate of the AAA
federation representing nearly
4 million members in Florida,
Georgia, the western two-
thirds of Tennessee and Puerto
Rico. For information on AAA's
traffic safety programs, visit

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.
