People named


Katrina respond


to hurricane news


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
People named Katrina feel a
personal link to the hurricane
that may be the worst disaster in
United States history.
At an internet site for "people
named Katrina," the hurricane
bearing their name has been a
topic of interest.
When the hurricane list first
came out, several Katrinas were
pleased to see their name getting
a little national recognition. Most
of those posting on the site had
never personally met another
person named Katrina.
"I would love to have a hurri-
cane named after.us," wrote one
poster. "I don't know about any
of you others but I have been
known for blowing through
some lives like a windstorm."
When the storm gained


strength last weekend, more
Katrinas took notice.
"Aren't you proud of 'our'
storm?" one Katrina wrote.
Initial excitement about see-
ing their name in the news gave
way to depression over the
destruction the "K" storm left in
its wake.
"Now that the hurricane is so
deadly, I am no longer proud of
sharing my name with it, to say
the least," wrote a teenage Katri-
na. "It was kind of fun when I
was hearing about it at first, but
now my heart goes out to those
who were affected by it and their
families. Now it's not quite so
exciting to see my name in the
headlines, because there's so
much heartache that must be
attached with it."
"So much destruction so

Survivors share hurricane stories


Compiled by MaiyAnn Morris
Okeechobee News
As the tragedy on the Gulf
Coast of the United States
unfolds, people living in the
Lake Okeechobee area of Flori-
da remember our own experi-
ences with the four hurricanes
that hit South Florida in 2004.
Pictures of destruction in Missis-
sippi and Louisiana echo the
pictures of Homestead after
Hurricane Andrew in 1995 when
whole neighborhoods were lev-
eled by wind and water.
Hurricane history captured
the stories told by survivors of
the hurricanes that hit Lake
Okeechobee in 1926 and 1928.


Recolections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history

.-



-There is also an account of the
aftermath of a storm that hit
Central Florida in 1878.
Belle Glade: "One of my earli-
est .memories was my daddy
making me get down on one
knee in front of a man I didn't


know and say, "Thank you for
saving my life." I was so young I
didn't really have much sense of
what the words meant, but I
remembered the moment anti
later I asked. During the storm,
he'd wrapped me up in some-
thing and hung me up high
enough on something strong
enough that I didn't drown
when the wave came in."
Potluck in the Muck" a play

dents Vernon and Jeannette

nity Development Corporation

dents who survived the 1928

hurricane.
Okeechobee:
Mrs. Annie' Raulerson, wife of
Hiram Raulerson, recalled the hur-
ricane on Sept. 16, 1928:
"My father-in-law (Lewis
Raulerson) made us all go down
to the store because he felt like
that it was the strongest building
in town. We weren't the only ones
there. There were just so many
people, you could hardly walk in
there. The other people had the
same idea.
"One of my brothers was visit-
ing and all of the men would have
to hold hands as they went down
the west side of the store and
coming' around the south side.
The wind was so strong you
couldn't stand up alone."
Mrs. Olive Lightsley, wife of
Robert Tombs Lightsley had 12
children. They lived on the west-
ern edge of Eagle Bay a mile or so
east of the Kissimmee River also
survived the 1928 disaster. Mrs.
Lightsley was interviewed in 1982
at the age of 91.
"It was bad all day and the
storm was getting stronger. We
knew we would have to leave the
house. We went to a smaller
house my husband had built for
storage. My son was six weeks old
at the time. We got in to the little
house with every one of the chil-
dren. At some point during the
night it turned over. There was a
big fallen tree outside, and we all
sat on that log the best we could. I
had my baby in my arms the
whole time. I had to hold him up
high to keep the waves from
washing him from out of .'my
arms." Mrs. Lightsley lost two of
her sons in the storm; Osborn, age
5 years, and Robert, who was four
years old.


Special to Independent Newspapers of Florida/www.lamartin.com and
Gloria Scherrer
Okeechobee Hardware was built by Ellis Meserve in 1915.
Mr. Meserve and his wife, the former Faith Raulerson lived in
the apartment on the second floor. After the storm, it was
replaced with a one-story structure.


Interviews by Twila Valentine,
Okeechobee News

Kissimmee Valley, 1878
"Editor, Sunland Tribune:
"I was in Fort Myers on Friday,
Sept. 20, the week succeeding the
recent cyclone and facts learned
there are so remarkable that they
deserve a permanent record.
"Among the first persons
-whose acquaintance I formed
was a party of three who arrived at
the wharf just after I did, having
come in a boat from Fort Basinger,
on the Kissimmee river. Now if in
high water a boat should pass
down'the Kissimmee into Lake
Okeechobee, and thence into the
Caloosahatchee, it would not be
an unprecedented performance,
for these waters are known to
connect frequently, perhaps every
summer. But these men did not go
down into Okeechobee at all, but
came in a straight line 30 miles
across the prairie, finding
nowhere less than 5 feet of water,
where saw palmettos covered the
face of the country, and where cat-
tle usually range and feed. They
told me they crossed Fish Eating
Creek and did not know it. That

stream was obliterated in the
flood. I suggested that many cattle
might be drowned. They thought
not, as there are little scrubby-ele-
vations upon which the cattle had
collected, and where they could
stand, though in the water. Where
they passed the flood had already
begun to abate and on these ele-
vations the palmetto leaves to
show. The cattle were eating
them. But bad as was this condi-
tion of affairs, when they arrived at
the Caloosahatchee they found
matters a great deal worse. There
had been quite an immigration
within two or three years to the
banks of that river and there are
now probably twenty houses situ-
ated on the immediate bank
above Fort Myers. All of these
houses except one were, as my
informants passed, submerged.
That one stands on posts about six
feet high, and the water was up to
the floor, and a boat was tied to
the door ready for the embarka-
tion of the family at a moments
notice."
Sunland Tribune, Tampa Flori-
da, Oct. 12, 1878, Letter to the Edi-
tor by John G. Webb

many lives lost, homes lost," anoth-
er Katrina wrote. "It is so over-
whelming. And now the name Kat-
rina will forever be linked to this
tragedy."
"At first I was too excited seeing
my name all over TV," another Kat-
rina commented. "The name Katri-
f na is just not so common as Susan
o or Mary. But as this hurricane pro-
gressed, I will always remember
my name associated with tragedy."
Katrina Blankenship of Virginia
Sis a web designer. After the hurri-
cane hit, she turned her personal
website, www.katrina.com, into a
forum about the hurricane.
0 "This website was designed
about seven years ago to advertise
widersp my computer business. God has
blessed me and my family beyond
words over the years. With the
computer radio show that I hosted
for three years and this website,
0 God has given me a special gift to
help others. Of course, I had no
idea that there would be a hurri-
cane with my name attached to it.
And this site has received over
80,000 hits in two days. I hope that
this can be a portal where folks can
share their stories, ask for help, or
lend a helping hand," she wrote.
The site has forums for those
seeking information about relatives


- on q


and those offering help in the form
of jobs, housing and special skills.
Some posters offer hurricane vic-
tims help by contacting relatives in
foreign countries. Others offer shel-
ter in their own homes. A company
in Jacksonville posted job open-
ings, along with an offer to help


-


with housing. Many simply offer
comfort and prayers.
"Let's all reach out our own way
whether it be money, volunteer
work, prayer, or any other to help
these people right now who are so
much in need," one poster wrote.

ments will be published in the newspaper as spacepermits.
FISH KILL: It rained today and it was cloudy. I am sure there was more
run off. Why wasn't there a fish kill in the Rim Canal today? Could it be
that someone lied?
GOT THE SONG: I want to really thank you for sharing the informa-
tion about the rock a bye baby song. I got on the internet and looked for it
but couldn't find it. So, I called a number and I got in touch with Sonny
Martin. He said that song is no longer available. But I told him how badly I
wanted it so he said he would send me a web site to go to and I can
download it for $5. He said you will never hear it on the radio any more,
so he told me to take care of it. Again, thankyou so much for your help.
FATS DOMINO: Fats Domino is believed to be at the Superdome. I
suppose you wouldn't want him to come here either because he is
around people that are looters and shooting guns. I guess that would
make him a bad person too! Believe it or not, there are a lot of good peo-
ple that are in that Superdome. Unfortunately, the ones that loot and
shoot are the ones the media talks about and scares people like you to
where you wouldn't want to help if you could. (Editor's Note.: Fats Domi-
no was found floating in a boat and was rescued by an emergency
crew. The whereabouts of his family, however, is unknown.)
KATRINAVICTIMS: At this point what is money going to do for these
people. It will go towards the rescue teams to help pay their way. But the
people do not need money at this point. They need the basics that any-
one would need in order to be able to live. They need water, food, shelter
and clean air to breath. They have to be moved in order to get this. If I was
in a situation that I could, I would drive up there and help. But I can't at
this point in my life. There are only a few that are doing the looting and
shooting. And if there was law and order around they wouldn't do it
either. They weren't doing it last week. And last week these people had all
the food they wanted to eat and water to drink and electric and their
homes and their family around. Now they don't. Why don't you go out-
side and stay all day with out anything to drink. And then don't come in
tonight. Go a couple days. See how long you last. You can't be scared of a
few that might be looting in order to save some lives. Think of the people
that are up there helping and they have been shot at. They turn right
around and help some more. They are some terrific human beings.
These poor people do not have any idea what is going to happen. They
know they are doing evacuations, but are they going to live long enough
to be evacuated?
STAY HOME: I also feel that all Americans should stay home this
weekend that planned on taking trips on buses. Why can't they suffer a
little? They can visit their families at Thanksgiving. Send all the buses
down to New Orleans. to help evacuate. I know I would not want to be
sitting there for days with nothing to eat or drink and have to smell the
smells. What we went through last year was nothing compared to this.
This is 100 times worse. They are not going to live without help. They
need places to put all these people. Then, they can go on to the next
phase of getting healthy again and recovery. But they are desperate still.
GETTING SICKER: Last year when we had our hurricanes we also had
looters. But our situation was not as bad as theirs. During the tsunami
there was looting and gunshots and killings, but they got it under control.
They were just like New Orleans they were totally devastated. Why
don't you take one minute and put yourself in their situation. Those peo-
ple areno different than you and me. They just look poor because they
have lost everything. They even lost touch with family members. They
haven't eaten for days or drank any water they are desperate and
going crazy. That is human nature..But they are getting it under control.
And if inhe\ \xere sent here it wouldn't be just them. We would have peo-
ple sent here to help %%ilh them to. FEMA would be here. Thank god for
Texas. They opened up their arms to these people. They are saving their
lives. It might not be totally organized but we have never been through
anything like this before and they are doing the best that they can with'
what they have. The people left in New Orleans are getting sicker by the
minute and they need to get out of there. There is a web site that lists a
whole bunch of people all over the United States that have opened up
their houses, extra houses, extra bedrooms anything they have. I am sure
once things settle down that a lot of the people will go to these places.
They just need something temporary so they can live another day.
PRICE GOUGING: I am calling about the gas pricing that is going on in
Okeechobee. How do they expect the citizens of Okeechobee to go to
work every day with the price they are charging for gasoline. Pretty soon
we will all be out of a job because we won't be able to afford to go to
work. Then, the government will have to support us all. So please explain
to the citizens of this town how you can charge these outrageous prices
you want for gas; (Editor's Note: If you believe local gasoline outlets are
guilty of price gouging, you should call 800-646-0444, or (850)414-3300.)
LIES AND HALF TRUTHS: Why is it that the Okeechobee News prints
all the lies and half truths about President Bush, but will never print any-
thing that our county commissioners do that hurt our county. I would like
to know why. (Editor's Note: Do you have something specific in mind? If
so, please let us know.)
IMPEACH PRESIDENT BUSH: I was just reading about the disaster in
Louisiana and I thought I would let everyone know that there was money
set aside to strengthen the levees and President Bush froze the money so
he could send it overseas to kill some more of our boys. I think it is time to
take him out I mean impeach him. He has done the worst harm to
everybody. It is time to get rid of him. He is destroying our way of life in
every way possible. .
AIR FORCE ONE: I see where our president arrived in Louisiana,
where the hurricane hit. I would like to know why Air Force One wasn't
loaded-full of water and food instead of all those deadheads. Those dead-
heads aren't going to do any good down there. If they would have taken
Air Force One aJd loaded it with food and water then we would have
done something to help those people.

g, the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days
r. of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall
. mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the
time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appropriate time
-peiod shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under sections 120.569 and 120.57 ES., or to intervene
3- in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will
g be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in com-
h pliance with Rule 28-106205 of the Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is based
, must contain the following information:

C cation number, if known;
S (b)I The name, address, and telephone number of the peitioner, the name, address

V utes which entitle the petitionerto relief; and

tion is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall con-
tain the same information as set forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301,
c Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
Ir- action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be dif-
0. ferent from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department on
the application have the drightto petition to become a party to the proceeding, in
0 accordance with the requirements set forth above.
