Senior Services: Group sells crafts to help elderly


Okeechobee News/Audrey Blackwell
Debbie Schwendenmann, coordinator of the Okeechobee County Senior Services cen-
ter, displayed many stuffed animal pillows made by crafters at the center to sell during
Labor Day weekend at Flagler Park. Four ladies made the pillows as well as clothing,
pocketbooks, booties and sweaters. Proceeds from the sale help to fund the center's
programs, including in-home services such as homemaking, personal care and respite
care for caregivers. Congregate meals are served Monday through Friday at 11 a.m. for
about 50 people and the county makes about 180 home deliveries of meals a day. The
county owns the Senior Services center. Grants are its major funding source under
Community Services for the Elderly and the Older Americans Act. The Area Agency on
Aging in West Palm Beach is its lead agency.

Hearing on



city budget



is scheduled


By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
The first of two public hear-
ings on the city's 2005-06 pro-
posed $4.8 million budget will be
held Wednesday, Sept. 7, at 5:01
p.m. at.city hall.
The second reading and pub-
lic hearing on the budget is
planned for Sept. 20.
The budget ordinance No.
913 calls for a tax levy of 7.1899
per thousand dollar valuation on
all real and personal property
within the corporate limits of
Okeechobee, excluding property
within the city allowed as home-
stead property. One mill equals
$1 for each $1,000 of assessed
value. The tax bill for a $10,000
piece of property would be $10


for the city's portion of a person's
total tax bill.
The proposed millage rate
will be 13.11 percent over the
roll-back rate.
The new budget, once
approved, will take effect Oct. 1.
Following the public hearing,
the Okeechobee City Council
will hold their regular meeting.
The first item on the agenda is to
proclaim the week of Sept. 17-23
as Constitution Week.
The city council will take pub-
lic comments and vote on Ordi-
nance No. 905 regarding an alley
closing application for Hubert
and Rachel Phillips, owners of
Magic Mile Dairy Queen. Twenty

MIAMI As many Florida
workers enjoy Labor Day off, a
new .study shows that they are
in big demand in the state,
although their wages and bene-
fits are below national averages.
Another bit of good news:
Florida's poverty rate is about 1
percent below the national
average. That puts the state in
the middle of the pack national-
ly, according to two surveys
cited in Florida International
University's annual State of
Working Florida report.
"Job creation is better than
the nation as a whole, and it
appears that poverty rates are
dropping in Florida while they
have been rising for the lastyear


or two in the U.S.," said Bruce
Nissen, the report's author.
Florida has one of the
nation's lowest unemployment
rates 3.8 percent in July. It
has seen job growth of 8 per-
cent over the last four years,
according to the report.
But the Florida International
report found that while the state
is producing jobs, most are in
low-paying sectors. From 2000
to 2004, the state lost lucrative
manufacturing and informa-
tion-services jobs, but added
lower-paying construction,
leisure and professional-service
jobs.

Wages

Continued From Page 1
More than half the new profes-
sional jobs were created in the
employment industry, where
workers find that jobs arranged by
temporary agencies are some-
times sporadic and often come
with few benefits.
According to the U.S. Labor
Department, the median hourly
wage in Florida in 2004 was
$12.36, more than a dollar off the
national average of $13.83.
"It's easy to find a job, and that's
good," Nissen said. "But we've got


a structure in our state that skews
us toward low-paying jobs."
But Warren May, a spokesman
for the Florida Agency for Work-
force Innovation, said the state is
having "fairly balanced job growth
across all sectors."
"Where Florida gets a bum rap
is. we have a lot of tourism jobs,"
he said. "While it's true that a lot of
the jobs there pay the minimum
wage or slightly above, there are a
lot of high-paying jobs in that
industry."
In 2003 and 2004, 19 percent of
Floridians lacked health coverage,
according to the U.S. Census
Bureau. Florida was fifth from the-


bottom ahead of Oklahoma,
Montana, New Mexico and Texas.
The study also found a disparity
in tax burdens between the rich
and poor. Florida's sales tax sub-.
jects the lower and middle classes
to a proportionally heavier tax bur-
den than- their national counter-
parts. The state has no income tax.
As a result, the poorest 20 per-
cent in the state pay, on average, 3
percent more of their income in
taxes than those in a similar eco-
nomic situation in the rest of the
country, the report said. The rich-
est 1 percent pays about 2.5 per-
cent less than their national coun-
terparts.

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
BLAMING BUSH: I wouldn't be surprised to pick up the paper and
see where some of you insensitive people are blaming President Bush
for Hurricane Katrina. It would fit with everything else I am reading.
ITS' NOT RACISM: I am calling about the hurricane. I think it is terri-
ble and all the people should be helped. But to say that stuff is happen-
ing, or not happening, because of racism is ridiculous. All those cry
babies that are crying racism should stop and look at their own lives
because they may be the ones that are racist. President Bush is not
racist he is doing everything in his power to help. God bless him
and God bless America. They need to get off of this racial thing.
THEY DONT CARE: I have been wondering and listening to Pat
Robertson and Billy Graham. They are asking people to give, give and
give. But what they want people to give is to go into their pockets. They
don't care to help the people in Louisiana and Mississippi today.
QUIT WHINING: This message is to the extreme liberal soar heads
that keep calling in bashing Bush. The majority of the people are not
liberal, so straighten up your act, quit calling in and quit whining.
MORAL TREASON: To announce that there must be no criticism of
the president or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is
not only unpatriotic it is morally treasonable to the American public.
Spoken by Theodore Roosevelt in 1918.
PATRIOTIC SPIRIT: This is in response to the Bush basher in Satur-
day's paper. I agree with you 100 percent. These people need to get
some patriotic spirit. My husband was gone a year over in Afghanistan
and I don't appreciate the people telling him what he did was not
appreciated and they don't care that he risked his life to protect their
lifestyle. They need to get a life.
NOT BUSH'S FAULT: Today's Speak Out column didn't disappoint
me. I knew it would be only a matter of time before the crying, whin-
ing Democrats blamed President Bush on the New Orleans disaster.
Last week they blamed Bush for the gas taxes and now the money for
the levees. Gas prices are done by supply and demand and the Con-
gress appropriates money for projects. The president can but didn't
veto. I am thankful for Bush in the White House and not Kennedy or
Byden.
NOT ELECTION YEAR: This is for all the people that say that the
evacuation of New Orleans was racist. It was not. It just happened that
this is not an election year so the Bushes could show out and show just
how wonderful they are.
THREE STOOGES: For five years I have been trying to figure out
who Dick Cheney, John Ashcroft and George W. Bush are and I finally
got it figured out. They are the three stooges. They are still trying to fig-
ure out which one is supposed to be Moe.
TORN UP YARD: Will the person who lost control of their little truck
on Sunday, about 2 a.m., on S.E. Ninth Ave. come back and repair the
mess they left in my front yard?
REPORTERS: I was deeply moved by the news reports coming out of
New Orleans from the conservative-slanted Fox News. Sheppard Smith
and Geraldo Rivera both expressed despair and anger over what has
become a nightmare and a national disgrace. The question both
reporters, repeatedly asked was why nothing is being done to move
these desperate people after six days. Smith pointed out that the roads
out of New Orleans are open and yet checkpoints are turning people

back to the city. Rivera noted that those who could walk could be escort-
ed to the interstates where conditions were better. Their tearful pleas are
heart-breaking. But not enough is being done. \\'e must s mpathize
with these folks throughout the devastated areas, regardless of their
color or their wealth, because: "there, but for the grace of God, go 1."
BLAME ANYBODY: Blame anybody, just don't blame me. How did
the liberals miss this opportunity to bash Bush? I have first-hand
knowledge that the president telephoned Lucifer and told him that the
poor people of New Orleans were having way too much fun. So, he
asked Lucifer to send a storm their way to cause them much misery
and suffering.
RIDICULOUS: I find it ridiculous for people to be somewhat heart-
ened by the fact that a gay festival never took place in New Orleans
because of the hurricane. Ask those who lost their homes, jobs and
loved ones what they think. Or maybe by that logic, all of these people
who are hurricane victims were somehow ousted by Hurricane Katri-
na. Republican Senator Trent Lott's home was washed away. Maybe
he is gay? Get real. Christians shouldn't be thinking this way.
NEEDS MORE CONTROL: Why would you shoot at someone try-
ing fo help you? We are Americans not some foreign country that is
100 years behind us. If you want help, then you shouldn't shoot at
someone trying to give you food and water. Stealing food, clothes
and other products necessary for survival is one thing, but a big
screen TV? That is ridiculous. I understand that there are good and
bad, my point is that you should not bring the ones that are going to
come here and cause that kind of problems. Maybe after the Army
disposes of a few ,of the ones running around like idiots they will
think about what they are doing, so that they can get food and water.
I feel extremely bad for the old helpless people that need medicine
and care. I also feel bad for the ones that are small. I am not heartless
but then again I do not think things should be given to the ones that
are not going to appreciate it. My opinion is mine and you do not"
have to agree. If I were there with no food, no water and desperately
wanted out think I would rally against those (or try any way) and
make them see the light so we could get out of there. My cousin is on
his way over there with the Army to help and my company is also on
its way to help, but there needs to be control over the idiots.

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?

Recycling newspapers is environmentally friendly


I was pleased a few weeks
ago when a master gardener
suggested using newspapers
under mulch to control weed
growth. (Use a thickness of at
least six sheets and overlap the
sections. It is easier to keep
them in place if you soak the
newspaper in water first.)
Newspapers are such useful
things. After you read the day's
news and clip out photos to
send to relatives, the black and
white parts of the rest can be
recycled usefully. Color inserts
on glossy paper are not as per-
meable and should not be used
under mulch.
Today's newspapers are
organic. Ink is made from soy-
beans. Paper comes from trees.
Actually often newsprint comes
from recycled paper, which was
made from trees.
Since newspapers are organ-
ic, they are a more environmen-
tally-friendly weed barrier than
the rolls of black plastic some


A
Healthier
Life f

with Katrina Elsken
gardeners use.
I remember my father using
newspapers when planting
tomatoes. He would dig a hole,
drop in a crumpled sheet of
newspaper, put in a few inches
of dirt and plant the tomato
plant on top. He said the news-
paper would "wick" moisture
from the ground to the tomato
plant.
Other environmentally-
friendly ways to recycle newspa-
pers (and save money) include:
Save your empty toilet
paper rolls. Stuff crumpled
newspaper into one end set


upright, newspaper side down,
in a watertight tray. Pack each
with moist, sterile potting soil
and plant seeds. When the
plants are big enough to transfer
to the garden, you can plant the
whole thing. Both the cardboard
roll and the newspaper are
biodegradable.
If you have too many ripe
bananas, wrap them in newspa-
per and store them in the refrig-
erator. The skins will turn black
but the fruit will stay fresh.
Place crumpled newspa-
pers in wet shoes so they will
retain their shape as they dry.
The newspaper will also help
deodorize the shoes by absorb-
ing odors.
Keep some old newspapers
in the car to use to protect car
seats from muddy or wet cloth-
ing, should you get caught in a
storm.
*Take along old newspapers
when you go camping. Stacks of
newspaper can be placed under


sleeping bags to provide insula-
tion from the cold ground.
Crumpled newspapers can also
be used to help get a campfire
started.
Use crumpled newspapers
to polish car windows after
cleaning.
Use newspapers as
padding under tablecloths, to
protect tables from hot plates
and from spills.
Before allowing children to
paint or color, spread newspa-
per out to protect the table from
any mishaps.
Save old newspapers to use
in paper mache crafts and
school projects.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you are
on any prescription medica-
tions. Some drugs interact badly
with foods that would otherwise
be considered healthy.

Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
The sole touchdown for the Brahmans Friday evening was
set up by an 80-yard pass from Virgil Barrett (right) to
Rashad Kelly (left). Quarterback Travis Conrad then scored
on a quarterback sneak.

13-7 OHS

The Okeechobee Brahmans
traveled to Avon Park Friday
evening to take on the Red Devils
and returned to Okeechobee with
a 13-7 loss, their first of the season.
In a game marred by
turnovers, fumbles and blown
assignments, Okeechobee's lone
touchdown followed an 80-yard
pass play from Virgil Barrett to
Rashad Kelly. Quarterback Travis
Conrad then scored on a quarter-
back sneak.
"We didn't have a very good
week of practice and we played
exactly the same way we had
practiced," stated Brahman head
coach Chris Branham. "We didn't


grid loss

even break 100 yards.
"We had practice scheduled
for this morning (Monday) and
many didn't bother to show up. I
have a rule that if they cannot
make practice, they must call and
let me know. There may be some
players suspended for the week if
they do not have good excuses for
not attending practice, or at least
checking in with me."
Branham said his team was
guilty of committing six turnovers
in the loss.
The Brahmans will take on the
Lake Placid Dragons at Brahman
Stadium on Sept. 9. Kick off is
scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Since its creation by Congress
in 1939, the U.S. Coast Guard

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 exam-
inations of recreation vessels and
teach over 50.0,000 students in
boating and water safety courses.
The results of these efforts save
taxpayers hundreds of millions of
dollars every year. For informa-
tion, call (863) 467-3085.

tance in developing a youth choir.
