The Okeechobee News, Sunday, August 21, 2005


Recipients of education grants announced


FORT LAUDERDALE Lt. Gov-
ernor Toni Jennings and Education
Commissioner John L. Winn
announced the recipients of the
first-ever SUCCEED Florida Career
Education Grants at a press confer-
ence following the Enterprise Flori-
da Board meeting in Fort Laud-
erdale. The SUCCEED Florida
Grant program, created by the
2005 Florida Legislature, is award-
ing $21 million in grants to public
and private secondary and post-
secondary institutions to support
new or expanding programs in
nursing education and teacher cer-
tification, and to plan and imple-
ment career academies. With the
announcement, the Department of
Education is awarding 17 nursing
grants, 27 teaching grants, and 49
career academies grants to institu-
tions throughout the state.
"It couldn't be more appropri-
ate that we are here at the Enter-
prise Florida board meeting to
announce the first recipients, of
these grants," said Lt. Governor
Jennings. "Career education is
important for successful economic
development. A highly-qualified,
trained workforce attracts and


jobs."
Additionally, Commissioner
Winn unveiled his new four-point
plan to better prepare today's stu-
dents for tomorrow's workforce.
The plan outlines the Department
of Education's efforts to expand
career academies in high schools,
align career education with indus-
try standards and workforce
demands, and expand options for
students to continue their educa-
tion and enter the workplace. The
Commissioner also highlighted the
realignment of Department
resources to expand public-private
partnerships to build capacity and
modernize the image of career
education.
"SUCCEED Florida provides an
outstanding base to expand Career
Academies in high schools to bet-
ter prepare students with rigorous
academics and relevance to a
'career theme' such as life sci-
ences, aviation, or information
technology," explained Commis-
sioner Winn. "It is no accident that
these are the same areas that Enter-
prise Florida is targeting for eco-
nomicdevelopment.
The Commissioner also high-


lighted budget issues approved by
the State Board of Education at
their meeting on Aug. 16, as part of
their legislative budget request,
including proposed increases in
SUCCEED Florida grant funding
and a proposed GED Success
Scholarship to assist recipients
with transitioning into further
career education.
The 2005 Legislature demon-
strated its commitment to career
education by investing a total of
$31 million in building capacity for
education programs that meet
workforce demands. With the $21
million SUCCEED Florida grants,
the Legislature set two priorities to
build capacity for the state's most
critical workforce needs, $10 mil-
lion for nursing and $5 million for
teaching. Lawmakers also funded
$5 million for the expansion of
career academies.
Additionally, the Legislature
funded $10 million for the Jobs for
Florida's Future program. Part of
the Florida Chamber of Commerce
2005 Business Agenda, Jobs for
Florida's Future was designed to
build capacity in a broad array of
occupations tied to Enterprise


Outdoors-Woman workshop has openings


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
still has openings for women who
want to spend a weekend learning
a variety of outdoor activities in
Ocala on Sept. 9-11.
The FWC invites women, 18
and older, to attend the Becoming
an Outdoors-Woman (BOW)
workshop to improve their out-
door skills and enjoy a few recre-
ational activities. In four, three-and-
one-half-hour sessions, the
workshop teaches skills associated
with hunting, fishing and other
forms of outdoor recreation, at all
levels of physical activity.
"The most popular classes par-
ticipants sign up to take, year-in


and year-out are the Primitive Chef,
Canoeing/Kayaking Basics, Basic
Wilderness Survival Skills, and
Introduction to Handgun Shooting
and Hunting," BOW state coordi-
nator, Lynne Hawk, said.
The BOW Program offers a fun
and supportive atmosphere for
participants to experiment and
enjoy the camaraderie of others
who want to learn about Florida's
great outdoors. Although it is
designed with women in mind, the
workshop is open to anyone who
wants to learn in a comfortable,
non-threatening, non-competitive,
hands-on atmosphere. The pro-
gram's instructors strive to make
campers feel at ease.


The workshop will take place at
the Ocala' Conservation
Center/Camp in the Ocala National
Forest. Sessions will begin Friday at
11 a.m. and end Sunday with
lunch.
The cost for the 3-day work-
shop is $150, and there are a limit-
ed number of partial scholarships
available for low-income partici-
pants, single parents and college
students. The workshop is restrict-
ed to 100 participants on a first-
come, first-served basis.
For more information about the
BOW workshop and registration,
visit the FWC's Web site at
MyFWC.com/BOW or call
(561)625-5126.


Florida's "targeted sectors" and
Workforce Florida's "targeted or
high demand occupations."
"Florida is developing an inter-
national reputation as a life-science
hub, from our world-class health
care facilities, to our research and
development labs, bio technology
and life science activity. "SUCCEED
Florida is strategically aligned to
meet critical needs, such as the cur-
rent shortage ih skilled nurses, and
will identify gaps in other high-
tech, knowledge-based sectors."
Joining the Lt. Governor and
Commissioner at the event were
Representative Dennis Baxley,
Community College and Work-
force Education Chancellor David

ty College President Bill Law,

Letter to the Editor


It's our choice
I am the type of person that
understands that I will never
know all the answers. But, I also
understand the need for wisdom
is in asking the right questions.
With this in mind, we all know
the kids are back to school and if
you have not noticed you either
need more coffee or to change
your medication.
I love humor and let's face it,
people are funny, right? And if you
have not noticed this then no cof-
fee or medication can help you in
the morning.
Now I am going to ask you
some questions that might not
sound so funny.
Why are children riding in a
bus with no seat belts, yet we
have seat belt laws? Are school.
buses exempt or perhaps itwould.
cost too much to make them


safer?
Why are some children wait-
ing up to 45 minutes after school,
then are loaded onto overcrowd-
ed buses where they might even
have to stand until some more
kids are dropped off?
Why are school bus drivers
speeding? Perhaps the answer lies
in the last question.
My point is this: kids today are
already facing odds against their
favor at the cost of our federal
budget and growth, but at what
price is their safety worth?
This is the real picture, some'
kids have to get up quite early
then walk some distance in dark
areas or streets, while we hear
about more and more sexual
predators and Okeechobee
has its share, just look it up. :
Thenthey are loaded into per-
haps an overcrowded bus, and

they might even have to stand for
a distance. Then, because of the
shortage the existing bus drivers,
are forced to speed because of
tight schedules they have to meet.
And let's face it, we already are
hearing about more and more
accidents involving school buses.
Then on top of it all, the scary
fuel costs are crunching the budg-
et.
Do you see a problem here or
do I need more coffee and medi-
cine, too?
I hope I get some kind of
response by someone, some-
where on this subject. After all,
responsibility of a community is
accepted one person at a time.
Look, Okeechobee is going to
double maybe even triple in pop-
ulation in the next decade so if we
cannot solve this issue soon we
will be forced to face a more seri-


ous problem in the future.
The choice is ours, so step up
and speak out.
I think the new agriculture
center and. new courthouse is
good, but we better start re-think-
ing some other priorities here,
too.
School is back, so lets all be
careful out there!
The next time you see a speed-
ing yellow bullet ask yourself why
are our kids riding in a big yellow
crowded bus with no seatbelts
and maybe even standing while
riding at over 60 miles an hour?
Are they safe?
Accidents are costly, but
preparation always pays off.
And if I offended anyone,
good!
I love the smell of coffee in the
morning, don't you?
... ,J.K. Murray III

If you missed this at PGA...


By Daniel Shube
The top players in the world
playing Baltusrol for the 87th
PGA Championship drove home
stellar ratings for Turner Net-
work Television (TNT), as the
network experienced a 47 per-
cent increase for its weekend
coverage of the event. Overall,
the network's four-day tourna-
ment coverage delivered a 1.8
cable rating .(1.5 US), up 13 per-
cent over 2004. If you were one
of the few golf fans that missed
it, the kind folks at TNT provided,
me some quotes that tell ,the
story. The quotes are from
announcers Ernie Johnson,
Bobby Clampett, Billy Kratzert
and Jim Huber as well as other
notables.
Clampett on the large club
used by Davis Love III: "I saw the
club head at the top of Love's
golf swing and you could almost
do chin-ups on it."
Johnson on the long drives of
John Daly: "The crowd doesn't
want him to put the driver away,
he should just keep it in his hand
all day. If he pulls anything else
out of the bag a big groan comes
out from the crowd."
Johnson to PGA president
Roger Warren on the origination
of the Baltusrol course name:
"Some of the players were asked
about the name of the course,
'Baltusrol,' and gave some inter-
esting answers (like) 'I think it's
an Indian Tribe.'"
Roger Warren: "Baltus Roll,
the gentleman who owned the
land and died on the land, is
where the name comes from."
Johnson on Steve Elkington
and the New Jersey heat: "Elk-
ington has got to be saying, 'I'm
Australian and live in Houston -
the heat is kind of cool here.'"'
Charles Barkley on close
friend Tiger Woods early poor
play and the extremely hot
weather during the tournament:
"It must be hot out there
because Tiger is ingreat shape
and he is sweating. When skinny
people sweat, you know it's hot.
I sent him a text message today
to wish him good luck but I

guess it didn't work"
David Fehertv on Justin
Leonard and his sunglasses: "It's
always a little hard to know
what's going on behind the re-
entry sunglasses there."
Davis Love III on being paired
with defending champion Vijay
Singh and John Daly: "I enjoyed
playing with them. Out here, it-
was a little more like a circus. It's
like playing with Elvis being out
here with Daly."
Charles Barkley on who is in
better shape between he and
Woods: "Well he has a six pack
and I have a keg, and I would
never want to have just six
beers."
Barkley on the physical strain
that golfing takes on his body: "I
came to the realization a couple
months ago that I am fat. If you
get tired from walking and
that's all that golf is then you
are officially fat."
Barkley on his recent per-
formance at the American Cen-
tury Celebrity Championship, in
which he finished directly
behind Cheryl Ladd and Chris
Webber: "It's embarrassing. If
you are a man and you can't
beat girls or the smart kids, you
shouldn't be playing, I'm retiring
from golf. I'm not going to play
again."
Barkley on Woods: "One
thing about him is that he won't
quit. He will, battle through all 18
holes today. I don't think he gets
enough credit for how hard he
competes. If you look at all of the
winning he does, he is so consis-
tent. He and Vijay Singh who is a
great player as well.


Hank Johnson, the 2004 PGA
Teacher of the Year on the char-
acter of Tiger Woods: "He's just
phenomenal. I think that one
thing that a lot of people tend to
forget is that he's a young guy.
He's only 29. And I think the way
he's handled his situation, espe-
cially at his age, is just incredible.
He's so great for the game. He
embodies all of those things that
have created folk-heroes in the
past. He's got Nicklaus-power,
he's got Palmer-charisma, he's
got Norman-flair for Shake-
spearean dramatics he just has
everything. I see people running
home to get in front of their TV's
that don't even play golf to
watch Tiger. He's great,
absolutely great."
Kratzert, after Charles Howell
III aced the hole, 4th hole with a
one-bounce shot: "That was a
home sick gopher right there."
The PGA Championship com-
pletes the competition for entry
for, the PGA Grand Slam of Golf
to be held Nov. 22-23 in Kauai,
Hawaii.
Phil Mickelson joined Tiger
Woods, Michael Campbell and
Retief Goosen.in qualifying to
compete in the 36-hole event at
Poipu Bay Golf Course.
. Because Woods won two
majors, Goosen qualified by fin-
ishing first in the major points
list. Three of the four qualifiers
are in the top five of the World
Rankings Woods number one,,
Mickelson number three and
Goosen number five. Campbell
is ranked 19th.

Producers reminded of deadlines


Gainesville State Executive
Director, Kevin Kelley, today
urged farmers and ranchers to
sign-up for the Crop Disaster Pro-
gram (CDP) and Livestock Assis-
tance Program (LAP) in advance
of the approaching deadline.
"These programs have helped
thousands of producers recover
from the devastating effects of
severe weather in counties that
have received a Presidential disas-
ter declaration," said Kelley. "I
encourage all eligible farmers-and
ranchers to enroll in these pro-
grams now before the sign-up
periods close in order to partici-
pate and receive this valuable
assistance.".


For the CDP 2003 and 2004, the
sign-up deadline is Sept. 9, 2005.
For the CDP 2005, the enrollment
period ends Dec. 16, 2005. The
CDP provides assistance to pro-
ducers who suffered 2003, 2004
or 2005-crop losses as the result
of damaging weather or related
conditions. The 2005 crop losses-
are limited to those losses caused
by a hurricane season in counties
that had a Presidential disaster
declaration. Nearly $2 billion has
been paid to producers since
sign-up began in mid-March
2005.
Producers can receive disaster
benefits for crop losses for only
one of the 2003, 2004 or 2005


crop years.
However, if a producer has
been paid a CDP payment for a
2003 or 2004 crop loss and is sub-
sequently approved for a CDP
payment for a greater 2005 crop
loss, the amount of the 2003 or
2004 payment will be deducted
from the 2005 payment and the
difference will be paid to the pro-
ducer.
The sign-up period for LAP
2003 and 2004 ends Sept. 9, 2005.
The LAP provides payments to
livestock producers for grazing
losses that occurred in 2003 or
2004 if the producers' grazing
lands are in counties declared pri-
mary disaster areas under Presi-


dential or Secretarial declarations.
Livestock producers in contigu-
ous counties are not eligible. Pay-
ments to producers enrolled in
LAP are expected to begin in late
summer.
USDA has also made other
programs available to assist farm-
ers and ranchers, including the
Emergency Conservation Pro-
gram, Federal Crop Insurance,
Noninsured Crop Disaster Assis-
tance Program and emergency
loans.
USDA's Web site, http://disas-
ter.fsa.usda.gov/, provides pro-
ducers with one convenient loca-
tion for details on new and
existing disaster assistance.

Prices still holding good. Slaughter cows and bulls were $1 higher.
Calves were steady to maybe $1 higher. Some of the plainer cattle
were $2-3 higher. I guess they were trying to cheapen up the prices
by the head. Top calf price went to J.S.W. Davis of Clewiston, with a
high of $2.15. Top cow price goes to H.H. Partin of St. Cloud with a
high of $59.

Coast Guard Auxiliary
is active in community
Since its creation by Congress
in 1939, the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary has served as the civil-
ian, non-military component of
the Coast Guard. Today, the
33,000 volunteer men and women
of the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
are active on the waterways and
classrooms in over 2,000 cities and
towns across the nation. Each year,
Auxiliarists (folks just like you) save
almost 500 lives, assist some
15,000 boaters in distress, conduct
more the 150,000 courtesy safety
examinations of recreation vessels
and teach over 500,000 students in
boating and water safety courses.
The results of these efforts save tax-
payers hundreds of millions of dol-
lars every year. For information, call
(863) 467-3085.

EYDC is in

Development Center (EYDC)
needs you to share your skills or
special talents in making a differ-
ence in the lives of troubled youth.
Volunteers are needed as tutors,
translators, arts and crafts instruc-
tors, mentors, job preparation and
search instructors, recreation aides
and assistance in developing a
youth choir. Wouldn't you like to
make a difference? If so, please
contact Rick Hargraves at EYDC,
