County, builder reach accord


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
A disagreement between the
Okeechobee County Building
Department and local building
contractor Homes by Jolicoeur
has been reached after over a
year of legal wrangling.
There were three counts in
an amended complaint filed in
circuit court last summer by the
home builder dealing with
moisture barriers behind vinyl
signing on manufactured


homes, venting of crawl spaces
underneath manufactured
buildings and drainage under-
neath the company's model
homes on S.R. 70 E.
The agreement on these
issues was reached in a
marathon nine-hour mediation
session Aug. 8 that was required
before the case went to court.
The agreement was signed
by attorneys for both sides and
Jerry Jolicoeur, president of
Homes by Jolicoeur, on Aug 8. It


was ratified by the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners and signed by chair-
man John Abney at the Aug. 10
commissioners meeting.
Now all existing Jolicoeur
homes can receive certificates
of occupancy and the Jolicoeur
model home center can reopen.
The county was represented
at the mediation session by

Various businesses and organizations walked together at the first Breast Cancer Walk in
Okeechobee, sponsored by the local American Cancer Society office. The walk was held
Saturday and started in Flagler Park. Walkers started their 5K walk by passing under a
big pink and white balloon gateway. Pictured is a group from Harbor Federal Bank.

During a meeting of the
Community Traffic Safety
Team (CTST) on Wednesday,
Aug. 10, Debra Stallings, with
the Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT), said
no action was taken in Okee-
chobee County on a request
for a traffic signal at S.R. 70
and 16th Avenue.
She said studies showed a
signal was not warranted.
Traffic studies need to show a
certain number of vehicles per
hour turning in an eight-hour
time frame or a certain num-
ber of accidents occurring at
an intersection before a signal
can be placed.
Discussion turned to the
difficulty drivers have turning
onto Ninth Avenue when


heading west on S.R. 70 and
whether a light would be
installed there. Also noted was
the difficulty drivers have turn-
ing left (west) onto S.R. 70
from Ninth Avenue and llth
Avenue, especially during the
current FDOT road widening
project.
Bob Hindman, FDOT high-
way maintenance supervisor,
said FDOT will perform a road
study for lights at S.R. 70 W.
and Ninth and 11th Avenues
when the widening project is
completed.
The FDOT began a road
expansion/ditch replacement
project on S.R. 70 W. in March
and plan to complete it by late
winter or early spring 2006,

Taylor Creek part


of local history


By MaryAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
OKEECHOBEE Taylor
Creek Lodge, on the Rim Canal
of Lake Okeechobee, has been
in the news lately since it has
been sold to a Fort Lauderdale
man. The rents have been raised
and many long-time residents of
-Taylor Creek Lodge, mainly sen-
ior citizens on fixed incomes,
have been forced by the new
owners to move, many aban-
doning their homes there. These
mobile homes too old for regu-
lations to allow them to be
moved.
But Taylor Creek Lodge also
holds one of Okeechobee's his-
torical treasures, the Taylor
Creek Cabins.
According to "Georgia Boy"
Aldrich, now 81 years old, the


cabins have a history.
"Those cabins were floated
up the lake on barges all the way
from Fort Lauderdale in the late
1940s or early 1950s," he said,
"That was the first thing done at
Taylor Creek Lodge. I bought ten
of them and moved them here
to town."
The Records of the Okee-
chobee County property
Appraisers Office list the cabins
as buildings on the 1950 proper-
ty records for Taylor Creek
Lodge.
"The cabins were brought to
Okeechobee by a man named
Clayton White. He was a county
commissioner at the time," said
Judge William Hendry. "I
remember .they were there
when I used to fish there."
See Cabins Page 2


Special to INI/Regional Bureau of Historic Preservation
This single example of the Taylor Creek Cabins in 1998, brought by barge from Ft. Laud-
erdale in the 1950s, depicts the sturdy construction of a building that has stood the test
of time.

vinyl siding.
Mr. Jolicoeur believes that
manufactured buildings are in
compliance with state building
codes and that the county has
no jurisdiction to add additional
local requirements such a mois-
ture barrier.
The Florida Building Code
states that all manufactured
buildings bearing the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA) sticker "shall be deemed
to comply with the Florida Build-
ing Code and are exempt from
any amendments enacted by
any local group."
Both parties have agreed to
submit this question to DCA and
abide by the decision that organ-
ization renders.
The settlement goes on to
state that if DCA fails to issue a
declaratory statement, the ques-
tion will be referred to the Flori-
da Building Commission.
"In the event neither of these
agencies has jurisdiction to issue
such a statement or declines to
do so, then the parties shall
select a mutually agreeable engi-
neer licensed in the State of


Florida who shall make the
determination sought herein,"
states the agreement.
Mr. Verwey thinks that is the
right way to settle the moisture
barrier issue and that the matter
should have been referred to
DCA at first.
He said anything installed at
the factory is inspected by DCA
and that anything added to the
building at the site is subject to
local jurisdiction.
The settlement document
stated that Count II had been
resolved and no further action
was required. Count II had to do
with the disagreement as to the
number of vents required in the
crawl space under manufac-
tured buildings.
The third count had to do
with grading and drainage under
the Jolicoeur model homes.
The settlement stated that if
any of the model homes are sold
a written warranty must be pro-
vided stating that the floor joists
and flooring are structurally
sound and free of rot. The settle-
ment goes on to state that Joli-
coeur shall also issue a warranty
that the area underneath the
manufactured buildings is well
drained and will not develop any
ponding of water.

cer, said previously.
Okeechobee Deputy County
Administrator Jim Threewits
said the county is goingg to widen
BermanRoad by more than 3
feet. In the past, Mr. Threewits
had asked the advisory safety
committee to recommend that
DOT install flashing yellow lights
at the intersection of S.R. 70 and
Berman Road.
According to Ms. Stallings, in
the safety scheme of things,
FDOT did not find there were
enough accidents to warrant the
lights.
Another item Mr. Threewits
noted for the group's action list
to go to DOT was a suggestion
for double striping on S.R. 70 W.
from Eagle Bay Drive out to
Garibaldi's store.
Mr. Threewits wants to bring

According to the CTST web

is to reduce the number and
severity of traffic crashes within
the community. CTSTs exist in
more than 50 Florida communi-
ties and are supported by the
FDOT. Each FDOT district has a
CTST Coordinator who works
O closely with the teams in their
geographic area. Ms. Stallings is
the FDOT coordinator for Okee-
chobee and attends CTST meet-
ings here. She works at FDOT's
District I office in Bartow.
The CTSTs are closely tied to
Florida's Safety Management
System as a mechanism to
address highway safety on all
S public roadways. Federal
requirements for Safety Manage-
ment Systems include a compo-
" nent where states should "coor-
dinate and integrate
broad-based safety programs
(such as motor carrier, corridor,
and community-based traffic
safety activities) into a compre-
hensive management approach
for highway safety and cover-
age" extends to all public roads,

The Taylor Creek Cabins in July, 2005 are examples of early
Florida construction. They await their fate at.Taylor Creek
Lodge.


Cabin
Continued From Page 1
"The cabins were there when I
was in my 20s," said Betty
Williamson.
"It was a very romantic spot,"
she recalled. "That's where peo-
ple used to go courting."
"It's where I gave Miss Betty
her engagement ring," said her
husband, Sonny Williamson.
In 1998, the City of Okee-
chobee asked the Florida Office of
Historic Preservation to help iden-
tify historic resources in the area.
The result is "A Guide to preserv-
ing Historic Resources in Okee-
chobee", March 2, 1998. (The
document is on file in the refer-


ence section of the Okeechobee
Public Library and Main Street
Okeechobee also has a copy.)
"Those cabins are made of
what you call Dade County Pine,"
said Mr. Aldrich. Dade County
Pine, used for many early build-
ings is now nearly extinct. But the
old buildings made of it have
withstood hurricanes, storms and
termites without a twitch, as have
those constructed of Cypress.
"You can hardly drive a nail
into it!" said Mr. Aldrich. "Some of
the cabins were sold to Okee-
chobee residents and they moved
them. Some are still here in the
City, people may have added on
to them, but part of them is still
the cabins. I bought ten of them at
the time, and used them for rental
housing, but they're gone now."

Special to Okeechobee News/Okeechobee County Historical Society

Looking Back ...
During WWI, when displays of patriotism were the rule of the day, this group of Okeechobee students and their faculty
members were publicly patriotic when they gathered each morning to salute the flag that flew proudly outside the ele-
mentary and high school buildings. This photo also appears in the book tilted "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 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., 34973. This will not obli-
gate 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 okeenews@okeechobee.com.

The Okeechobee News, Sunday, August 14,2005 AGRICULTURE 5


Everglades show phosphorus reduced


Water flowing out of the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area (EAA)
showed significant improvement
in phosphorus reductions for the
tenth consecutive year, thanks to a
highly successful program of Best
Management Practices. The results
for the 2005 monitoring period
show that'phosphorus reductions
in the 500,000-acre farming region
south of Lake Okeechobee were
better than double the amount
required by law.
Phosphorus, a life-essential
nutrient, is a common ingredient in
fertilizer and in the EAA's muck


soils. When carried in stormwater
runoff, phosphorus harms the
Everglades ecosystem to the south.
The amount of phosphorus leaving
the EAA must be reduced by 25
percent each year to meet the
requirement of Florida's Ever-
glades Forever Act. This has been
achieved-and surpassed-every
year since the law took effect a
decade ago. Data show a 59 per-
cent phosphorus reduction for the
2005 annual monitoring period.
Annual reductions for the past ten
years have ranged from 34 to 73
percent.


The phosphorus reductions
were largely achieved through a
South Florida Water Management
District program known as Best
Management Practices, or BMPs.
BMPs are improved ways of farm-
ing, ranching, landscaping, irrigat-
ing and managing animal waste-
all with the goal of reducing
environmental harm. In the EAA,
the most commonly used BMPs
are improved fertilizer application,
improved stormwater pumping
practices and erosion controls to
prevent runoff of phosphorus-
laden soils.
When measured in actual
mass, about 261 tons of phospho-
rus were prevented this year from
entering the regional canal system,
which sends water into the Ever-
glades. The ten-year total is even
more impressive: BMPs have kept
a total of 1,600 tons of phosphorus
out of the Everglades.
"Ten consecutive years of sur-
passing the requirement is a great
track record," said Carol Ann
Wehle, executive director of the
South Florida Water Management
District. "Certainly without the
cooperation of Florida's growers
this program would not be nearly
as successful. But the real winner


here is South Florida's environ-
ment. Reducing phosphorus
runoff is an important step in pro-
tecting and restoring America's
Everglades."
Her appreciation is seconded
by the District's Governing Board.
"The agricultural community in
Florida has come a long way in its
approach to phosphorus impacts,"
said Malcolm Wade of Clewiston.
"Farmers are the ones who help us
turn good ideas for phosphorus
controls into practical, real-world
changes. And clearly, they go
above and beyond what's
required. This ten-year track record
of improvement shows they are in
it for the long haul."
Water leaving the EAA receives
additional treatment in one of sev-
eral Stormwater Treatment Areas
(STAs) before entering the Ever-
glades. These constructed wet-
lands filled with native plants use
"green" technology to further
reduce phosphorus levels. More
than 36,000 acres of land south of
Lake Okeechobee have been con-
verted to STAs, and an additional
20,000 acres will be added by 2009.
They are yet another important
part of the District's commitment
to Everglades restoration.

Making a wish for your golfing pleasure


By Daniel Shube
Last weekend I had the pleas-
ure and honor to play for the sec-
ond time along with fellow credit
union members and supporters in
the Palm Beach County Credit
Union League Tournament. This
was the event's 15th anniversary.
Under the direction of Barry Hugh-
es from IBM Southeast Employees
Federal Credit Union, this, event
continues to grow everyyear.
This year's event took place at a
new venue, The General Course at
PGA National in Palm Beach Gar-
dens. The course played tough, the
weather was hot and humid, but
nobody cared. We were all having
too much fun reacquainting our-
selves with business partners and
friends, some who we see often,
others who we may not have seen
since the last event. The point is
that we were all there for two main
reasons: To have fun and to raise
money for a great cause. -
The event is not tied to any one
charity. Every year a new benefici-
ary is named. This year we all
played to raise money for the Make
a Wish Foundation. This worthy
organization grants wishes to ailing
kids and has helped over 127,000
kids since its inception in 1980.
Just hitting a few balls at a lovely
golf course is enough to make for a
great day, but Barry and his team of
volunteers assembled over $20,000
worth of prizes for the winning
teams and lucky raffle winners. I
won several great prizes last year,
so had no problem when asked at
registration to buy a stack of tickets.
Yet, I still could not pass an oppor-
tunity to buy some additional tick-
ets when two of the friendly girls
from the West Palm Beach Hooters
Restaurant offered me another
chance to be a big winner. While
some of you may think the concept
this chain uses to sell beer and
wings is sexist, I can attest to the
fact that the four volunteers from
Hooters worked hard in the heat
and humidity for five hours to help
raise lots of cash for the kids. As
someone who has worked to
organize a charity event, it's 'all


Highways
by Daniel Shube

about the charity and raising
money to help the cause!
This is my opportunity to
remind you that the summer sea-
son is a time when there are many
events like this one in your area.
Please find the time and money to
support the charity tournaments.
The volunteers work very hard.
The charities need the help. And
you will have great fun and feel real
good knowing that you have done
your share.
If you would like to make a
donation to the Make-a-Wish Foun-
dation, my friend Barry Hughes is
still gathering the funds from the
tournament. I'm sure he would be
thrilled to hear from you. Reach
him at bhughes@ibmsecu.org or
(800) 873-5100 ext. 4702. Tell him I
sent you!
