machine that defined the pro-.
gram since the early 1990s.
It's all about defense, spe-
cial teams, field position, con-

Sc'fe ,htv : Airplane lands at local airport


Normally, only small privately owned aircraft fly into the Okeechobee County Airport.
This Super DC 3, which landed about 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 19, is the largest aircraft that
airport manager Vernon Gray has seen land here during his few months as airport man-
ager. The aircraft was seeking a safe haven from hurricane Rita. The aircraft, which was
built in 1952, is owned by FMF Aircraft, Inc. of Miami and isWbased at Opa Locka. A sec-
ond DC 3 was expected to arrive in Okeechobee that same evening but was held up due
to mechanical problems. Mr. Gray said he received numerous calls from southern Flori-
da about the availability of fuel and tie down spaces at the Okeechobee airport. He said
that about five other smaller aircraft took refuge in Okeechobee while other aircraft
landed to refuel and then flew further north.

Hearing set



for county's



new budget


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
When the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners convene their meet-
ing on the new county budget
it will a first for the county it
will be the first time the coun-
ty's spending plan has topped
the $100 million mark.
The commissioners will
conduct their final public hear-
ing before adopting the new
budget at 5:01 p.m.
Besides the budget hearing,
the county board will face a
short agenda at Thursday's
meeting with only nine action


items on the agenda.
Two of the items deal with
the Okeechobee County Agri-
Civic Center, one concerns a
lease in the county's industrial
park and another deals with
expansion of the Okeechobee
Utility Authority (OUA) waste-
water treatment plant
The proposed county budg-
et for the coming fiscal year
totals $100,703,357.
The figure proposed at the
initial budget workshop in July
was $87, 357,848. The increase
is due primarily to unanticipat-
ed Hurricane Housing Relief

Projects beautify downtown area


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Rotary Club members wel-
comed Lydia Jean Williams,
Okeechobee Main Street execu-
tive director, to Tuesday's meet-
ing.
Mrs. Williams spoke to the
group about the programs that
are the focus of Okeechobee's
Main Street mission.
She explained that the Main
Street focus has a four-point
approach including: design,'
organization, promotion and
economic restructuring.
She said the group has
expanded their area to include
the northeast section of Okee-
chobee.
The guest speaker told
Rotary Club members about the
pending mural project that will
soon be beautifying local build-
ing facades with historical
murals.
"We are not just looking for
artists to paint the historical
murals, we will be looking for


residents with talent to help
with the many murals that are
planned," said Mrs. Williams.
She stated that the mural
program guidelines have been
presented to members of the
Okeechobee City Council for
approval, and the program will
begin as soon as council mem-
bers give the nod.
Another program discussed
was the banner program that
local residents may have
already seen examples of on
S.W. Park St. Mrs. Williams said
the banners depict scenes of
historical significance to long-
time Okeechobee residents and
visitors to the city.
The guest speaker also men-
tioned several other plans for
the beautification of downtown
Okeechobee that include- a
grant funded program in the
works to restore the old jail.
"The application process
takes a while for such a project,
but we are hoping to obtain
funding for the jail project of
more than $200,000," she said.


The possibility of an interac-
tive fountain in the Flagler Park
area of the downtown district
and plans to refurbish the CSX
Railroad depot should it be
turned over to the city were also
noted as 'hopeful' plans for the
future. Beginning Oct. 1, Main
Street members will receive a
monthly newsletter detailing
projected plans and progress
being made on plans already in
the works.
"As for now, we are listening
to and watching other cities
with Main Street districts and
learning from their successes
and mistakes," said Mrs.
Williams.
Mrs. Williams stressed the
need for local volunteers and for
residents to become individual
members of the Main Street
projects. She stated that based
on the minimum wage scale,
residents and business leaders
have already donated more
than $19,000 in volunteer hours

Program funds and Community
Development Block Grants
received in the wake of last year's
hurricanes.
The grant money went into the
current year's budget and will be
rolled over into the new fiscal year
budget.
The tentative millage rate is
7.10. One mill equals $1 for every
$1,000 of assessed value.
This millage rate is expected to
generate $12,894,248 in revenues.
The largest single area of esti-
mated revenue $23,857,270 -
is in the category of "intergovern-
mental" that includes all revenues
from the state, all grants and state
revenue sharing dollars. Other
sources of revenue include such
things as sales taxes, licenses and
permits, fines and forfeitures and
host fees from the Okeechobee
County Landfill.
The largest areas of expendi-
ture $21,625,761 for public
safety and includes funding for
the sheriff's office, fire/rescue, E9-
1-1 and the Okeechobee County
Jail.
In another agenda item, the
commissioners will hear from
Floyd Wooley of Wooley Sheds.
He appeared before the board
previously to request that they
remedy a drainage problem on
industrial park property he leases
from the county. Mr. Wooley is
expected to -request reimburse-
ment of his expenses for fixing the
drainage problem and to request
to lease an adjacent lot.
In a matter that has received a
lot of attention recently expan-
sion of the OUA wastewater treat-
ment plant commissioners will
consider an engineering contract
with Metzgar & Willard. The con-
tract, funded by a Community
Development Block Grant, pro-

to work on projects within the
focus area.
Mrs. Williams asked that any-
one interested in finding out more
about projects, progress or partic-
ipating in Main Street activities
contact the Main Street office at
(863) 357-MAIN; or, go to the
Main Street web site at
www.mainstreetokeechobee.co
m.
In other Rotary Club business:
Rotary member Mike
Costopoulos told fellow club


vides engineering services for the
interim expansion of OU's
wastewater treatment plant from
1 million gallons a day to 1.23 mil-
lion gallons a day. This interim
expansion will buy some time
while the permanent 4 million-
gallon-a-day expansion project is
under way. Some of the engineer-
ing on this project can also be
used for the planned future
expansion.
In an unrelated item, commis-
sioners will be considering a char-
ter for the Okeechobee County
Fair Association. If approved, the
fair association will be the entity
entrusted with conducting a
county fair.
In another agri-civic center
matter, the agri-civic center advi-
sory committee is scheduled to
recommend that the commis-
sioners modify the fee schedule to
allow for rent reduction and
rental fee waivers for nonprofits
groups. If approved, this will be a
180-degree reversal of a policy
approved earlier by commission-
ers. That policy states that there
would be no reduced rates ant
that everyone including non-
profit organizations would pay
the same rental fee.
The advisory committee pro-
poses that rental adjustment be
considered by them on a case-by-
case base and recommended to
the commissioners.,
In other action, the board is
expected to:
award a contract for rehabili-
tation of a State Partnership Imita-
tive Partnership (SHIP) home;
award contracts for cleaning
services for county buildings;
consider a proposed pay and
classification plan;
consider adoption of a spe-
cialty classification for hurricane
shutter installation and repair;
and,
discuss the existing cable
provider's request for consent to
a transfer of its franchise rights.

Central Elementary kids 'check out' the library


First grade
First graders at Central
enjoyed their field trip to the
Public Library and Dairy Queen.
Ms. Pat at the
library gave
us a tour. She
also told us
about every-
thing avail- -
able for check i
out. The Public Library also has
some room available in its After
School Programs. Ms. Pat also
read some interesting books.
The students really liked Ms.
Pat's puppets. Thank you for let-
ting us visit. We all had a won-
derful lunch at Dairy Queen. The
ice cream was delicious.
First Graders have begun the
100 Book Challenge. They are so
excited about the many new
books. They are reading, read-
ing, and reading! Students earn
steps for the time they spend
reading every day. They will be
earning tokens and medals.
First Graders gathered around
the flag pole on September 14th
in.remembrance of the Battle of
Fort McHenry, which inspired
the Star Spangle Banner. We
wore red, white and blue and
sang our nation anthem.
First Graders are also collect-
ing money for the victims of Hur-
ricane Katrina.

are: Alexis Muller, Rebecca Sny-
der, Ashley Boland, Marizol
Jaimes, Rumor Juarez and Kyle

Fourth Grade
The fourth graders at Central
Elementary. continue to work
their best at their studies. Plant
and animal adaptations are the
topics in science and flora and
fauna are the topics in Social
Studies. The students have writ-
ten their baseline narrative and
soon goals will be set for our
FCAT Writing assessment in Feb-
ruary. An excellent behavior
reward has been planned as well
as some exciting incentives for


those who complete their.A/R
goal. Keep reading kids we
want to surpass those fifth
graders!
A big thank you to all who
helped with our Rodeo Day, all
the students enjoyed the event as
well as a big thank you to Mr.
Hall for sharing our Cowboy
Tale. Parents, don't forget about
Writing Display Day next week. It
is a chance for you to come and
see what your 4th grader has
been doing in the area of writing.
Progress Reports should be
returned and AIP meetings have
been accomplished for the time
being. Furthermore, math is a
very important subject at every
grade level how is your child
coming along on the memoriza-
tion of his or her multiplication
facts. All 4th graders are suppose
to know their facts by October
1st. How is your child coming
along??
And, a big thank you to every
parent who reads the weekly
newsletter, signs their agenda,
and supports their child's educa-
tion.
In Mrs. Pritchard's class pre-
fixes and suffixes have taken
over our reading reviews. All of
us are experts in locating facts
vs. opinions and many of us are
learning new strategies for read-
ing and thinking. Accelerated
Reader is going strong and one
student has already surpasses
her goal by 50 percent!
The following have also been
chosen to be highlighted
because of their superior citizen-
ship and working behaviors:
Kayla Figueroa was selected for
her display of responsibility.
Wyatt Watkins and Maribel Mar-
tinez have shown great respect
in certain situations. Denise
Holmes displayed some caring
and Cristian Santos, Patricia
Sanchez, Jennifer Baker, and
Mitchell McCoin all displayed
some Trustworthiness. In the


area of Citizenship, Chelsea
Wharin and Jonathan Hickman
both were rewarded. And finally,
in the area of showing responsi-
bility with homework Summer
Ricardo, Victoria Maggard,
Stephen Hoo, Juan Sandoval,
Marsheka Pryor and a few others
were also selected! I hope your
child enjoys seeing his or her
name in print!
Speaking of print I wonder
who will be chosen in our poetry
contest and with the Kids Post??
Your child had a submission due
last week and almost everyone
entered a poetry contest time
will tell who will be selected!
Have a good week!
Mr. Bodenmiller's class is
looking forward to its second
science experiment of the year,
"Make a Water Wheel". Each
student Will create their own
water wheels to demonstrate
how water can be used as a
power source. This is part of a
continuing unit which also cov-
ers wind, electrical, and solar
energy. In language arts we are
covering compound words and
contractions, and finishing our
AR book "Jigsaw Jones" which
both students and staff have
thoroughly enjoyed. Students
are discovering that letters can
represent numbers as we cover
Roman Numerals, and we have
recently created timelines to give
students a concrete representa-
tion of the early settlement of
North America.
Mr. Goff's class is working
hard to reach their Accelerated
Reader goals. So far our class
has earned 126 points. In read-
ing we are getting ready to test
theme one. We have enjoyed
stories about a little girl named
Lydia Grace who had to leave
her parents during the depres-
sion, Lou Gehrig, Amelia
Earhart, Eleanor Roosevelt, and
many others. In math we are fin-
ishing our chapter on compar-


ing, ordering, and rounding
numbers. In social studies we
are really enjoying our Florida
Studies Weekly newspapers. We
have finished a research project
on some of the native Floridian
Indian tribes. In science we have
learned about plant and animal
adaptations. Our recent Students
of the Week have been: Rubi
Estrada, Kyla Lamb, and Davey
Watkins.
Our 4th Grade B.A.S.E. class-
es are studying Number the
Stars, which gives an up close
look at the Holocaust and World
War II. Starting September 12th,
we will be corresponding with
classes from Venezuela and
Mexico to practice our Spanish
skills.
Mr. Schlabach's class has
been hard at work this year. We
have been covering many differ-
ent topics. We have been work-
ing on even and odd numbers,
telling time, elapsed time,
money counting, making
change, rounding to the nearest
ten and hundred, and multiplica-
tion. We have been reading a lot
for Accelerated Reader, studying
maps and directions, learning
our continents and oceans, and
learning how plants scatter and
grow. We will continue to work
hard throughout this year.
Mr. Johnson's class has been
working hard to begin the

ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
SALE IS OFF: We contracted with a company to do some work
for us and they asked my husband for his Social Security number,
which he refused to give. Now the sale is off. Have you ever heard
of anything so ridiculous?

BLUE ROOFS: It makes me happy to see everyone helping out
after Hurricane Katrina: But, what about here at home? We still
have blue roofs here. Don't forget about our neighbors.

CANALS: Concerning the canals, we're paying a high amount of
taxes on this so-called waterfront property, but we haven't had a
boat up here in three years. It is a mess. There is debris and.rats,
and it is a stinking situation. Something has to be done. This is the
first canal from the lake by Zachary Taylor Campground. They are
supposed to havc $900,000, what are they going to do with it? (Edi-
tor's Note: The engineering study is nearly complete. Once that is
completed, the canal cleaning project can then move forward.)

SHUTTLE: The president said he was going to cut programs in
order to fund the hurricane. I have a great idea: cut out, throw out,
throw it away and don't even think about it again and that is the
shuttle. That's like throwing our money down a rat hole. They're
wasting our money. I wish they'd straighten it out. What are they
looking for?

FEMA TRAILERS: I see all the FEMA trailers are gone from Taylor
Creek. I just wonder if those people finally found a place, or were
they just booted out.

INSURANCE: I'm wondering how many others are losing their
insurance here shortly to cover their trailer and can't find others to
go to? I've tried about 20 names and can't find any.

The first record of a school in Basinger is revealed in a letter that was sent to William Underhill from W.S. Norwood, Bre-
vard County school superintendent, which is dated April 19,1880. In September 1940, high school students were being
transported into Okeechobee for classes. The Basinger school closed sometime during the decade of the 1940s.

FBLA helps relief effort
Members of the Future Business Leaders of America went to work to raise money for vic-
tims of Hurricane Katrina. They held two separate events. Through a campus-wide effort,
Okeechobee High School collected $3,129.94 for Hurricane Relief which they presented
to the Salvation Army. The three top donating classes will receive a pizza and soda party.
They are Mrs. Sherlock's class, $564.52; Mr. Leidy's class, $316.80; and, Mrs. Snow's
class, $301.97. In addition, the FBLA organized a "Shorts for a Dollar" campaign. Nor-
mally, students at O.H.S. are not allowed to wear shorts to school on Thursdays, but on
"Shorts for a Dollar" day, the administration permitted them to do so, if they chose to
donate a dollar. The total raised was $270. This money will be donated to the high school
in Franklinton, La., a small town adopted by Okeechobee.


Spotlight on Okeechobee


Congratulations
Jon Earhart Congratulations
on your new development -
Edgewater Acres.
Love your wife, Colleen Earhart
Sincere thanks
Big Lake Hospice would like to
express sincere thanks to those
who were instrumental in our relo-
cation to Northlake Village. Special
thanks to Danny Creech and
Creech Construction for a job well
done in a timely manner. Special
thanks also to Verticals and
Draperies by Elliebob. Our verticals
look wonderful and we are very
thankful for the thoughtful dona-
tion.
Sincerely, Big Lake Hospice Staff
YMS thanks
volleyball volunteers
I wanted to write you about the
recent volleyball tournament host-
ed by Yearling Middle School at the
Osceola Middle School gym. As ath-
letic director of Yearling, I cannot
thank Mr. Ard and the Osceola staff
enough for letting us use their facili-
ties. Our gym at Yearling is much
smaller, and we could not have
hosted a large event such as this.
I also wanted to say how thank-
ful I am to have Mr. Buddy Mills on
the Yearling staff. He is always there
for you when you need him. He
had some of his FFA students at the
tourney to help out. Mr. Mills donat-
ed all of his time to cook at the
event. Every coach and official
bragged about how great the food
was. Mr. Mills is one of a kind and
that is why he was our Teacher of
the Year winner at Yearling.
I also need to brag about our
volleyball parents, Mrs. Conrad,


and the Yearling custodial staff. So
many volunteers set up, cleaned up
and worked the concessions. I
would write down every name, but
I do not want to run the risk of for-
getting anyone.
The officials were also terrific.
Finding quality officials to work an
entire day is not easy. Mr. Cliff Kelley
from Lincoln Park High School
organized a group of Treasure
Coast officials and they ran the
event beautifully. I did not hear of
anycomplaints.
From the side most people do
not see, I want everyone to know
how much support we receive
from Mr. Greseth and Mrs.
Markham for our athletic program.
They share the belief that athletics
help students learn life lessons and
build knowledge in teamwork as
well as hard work. Without their
support we would not be where
we are today.
Finally, I need to thank Coach
Bruce Conrad. He thought of,
planned, ordered supplies, and
organized this event. Our school
and team are very lucky to have
someone like Mr. Conrad because
it is not very often that someone
puts so much stress on themselves
to allow someone else to have so
much fun. He has a quality that you
want to find in every coach. He
never settles for less than the best
for his team.
Thanks to everyone who helped
out, and the help you give is not just
noticed for one tournament, but
everyday. Without you this could
not have happened, but because of
you our students have experienced
another positive moment. Thank
you.
Nathan Owen, athletic director
ofYearling Middle School

servation law enforcement
cases. Other unique training

animals, identifying animal
tracks, tracking individuals and
vehicles in wilderness areas,

The agency is especially eager to

FWC invites public comment on action plan


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission invit-
ed further public comment on
the final submission of Florida's
first comprehensive wildlife
strategy, an action plan for con-
serving all of the state's fish and
wildlife and natural places. The
500-plus page document, a
component of Florida's Wildlife
Legacy Initiative, is part of one
of the largest conservation plan-.
ning efforts in the nation. Each
state has developed a proactive
action plan to conserve wildlife
before they become more rare
and more costly to protect.


Florida's action plan can help
us fulfill our responsibilities to
conserve wildlife and the places
they live. The health of wildlife is
often an early indicator of dis-
ease and pollution that affects
us all. Florida's action plan will
conserve wildlife and natural
places to the benefit of our
health and enjoyment, and for
future generations.
The action plan is a living
document. The FWC is commit-
ted to reviewing and revising the
plan with continued public
input. The FWC is planning a
workshop or series of work-


shops early in the new year and
through spring 2006, with a con-
ference in the fall.
"The strategy is a work in
progress that will continually be
updated, revised and improved
based on the input of all those
interested in wildlife conserva-
tion," said Thomas Eason,
leader of FWC's Species Conser-
vation Planning Section. "Work-
ing together, Floridians are
shaping a future filled with won-
derful wildlife resources and
providing for the enjoyment,
recreation and livelihood of its
residents and visitors."


Fla. Museum to host exhibition


GAINESVILLE The Florida
Museum of Natural History will
host the photography exhibition
'"Arms, Legs and Tentacles: Inverte-
brate Life on Coral Reefs," now
through Jan. 8, 2006. The exhibit by
Florida Museum marine malacolo-
gy curator Gustav Paulay showcas-
es reef life with an emphasis on
invertebrates.
"Like rainforests on land, reefs
are the most diverse ecosystem in
ihe sea," Paulav said. "They are
home to hundreds of thousands or
possibly millions of animal species,
yet even today only the largest,
most obvious and accessible


inhabitants have been described by
scientists."
The 23 photos highlight inverte-
brates from the sunlit reef surface
and the complex reef interior,
including animals rarely seen by
humans.
Paulay has studied tropical
invertebrates for more than 25
years.
He leads the reef biodiversity
program at the Florida Museum,
which is maintained by students
and taculty of the Division of Mala-
cology and Marine Invertebrates at
the University of Florida.
The Florida Museum of Natural


History is Florida's state natural his-
tory museum, dedicated to under-
standing, preserving and interpret-
ing biological diversity and cultural
heritage. It is located near the inter-
section of Southwest 34th Street
and Hull Road in the University of
Florida Cultural Plaza in Gaines-ille.
Hours.are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Tax collectors help manatees, sea turtles


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
honored six counties for exempla-
ry efforts in raising funds to help
Florida's manatee and marine tur-
tle programs. Tax collectors from
Alachua, Citrus, Flagler, Monroe,
Palm Beach and Sarasota counties
received awards for their participa-
tion in FWC's Voluntary Contribu-
tion Campaigns at the 2005 Florida
Tax Collectors Conference at
Amelia Island.
Tax collectors began the Volun-
tary Contribution Campaigns July 6
in conjunction with promotions for
the manatee and sea turtle decal
programs. These campaigns gen-
erate over $100,000 per year for the
Save the Manatee Trust Fund and
Marine Resource Conservation
Trust Fund aimtd at enhancing
manatee and sea turtle conserva-
tion efforts. Manatee and sea turtle
decals are available year-round at
all local tax collectors offices for a
$5 donation.


Florida's sea turtles and mana-
tees are a vitally important state
and national resource," said Kipp
Frohlich,.leader of FWC's Imper-
iled Species Management
Section. "We appreciate the work
that tax collectors across the state
are doing to raise public awareness
and funding for these species."


In other news, the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida, Inc., FWC's
direct support organization,
announced a campaign to increase
sales of wildlife conservation
license plates. Funds from license
plate sales support FWC's pro-
grams to protect wildlife and con-
serve habitat.

Savvy Saddles
This is the second year of
existence for a 4-H club that has
been organized for all 4-H mem-
bers interested in studying Parel-
li Natural Horsemanship. Natur-
al Horsemanship is a way to be
with and teach horses using
communication, psychology
and understanding rather than
mechanics, fear and intimida-
tion.
The club will focus on the
Parelli Natural Horsemanship
Program and will require each
member to purchase the Parelli
home study program packages-
including equipment. The Parel-
li Program is set up as a home
study program, however, it can
be enhanced by many avenues
including private and group les-
sons by certified instructors,.
two-day weekend seminars and
longer term study programs at
the Parelli Study Center in Ocala.
We will study the Parelli pro-
gram as a club beginning with
level one and working together
so that the entire 4-H club will
progress through completion of
this level and move to level two
and level three. We will accom-
plish this goal by organizing
study nights and by having clin-
ics with our horses to practice
and demonstrate each lesson.
We will also integrate many fun
days that include riding at the
rodeo arena and several trail
rides. Our plan is to have many
opportunities for all of us to play
with our horses and become
"Natural" horsemen. Additional-
ly, we will travel to see Pat and
Linda Parelli and their team
when they schedule a tour in a
convenient Florida location.
We invite you to join us for
refreshments and to watch
videos by Pat Parelli on Parelli
Natural Horsemanship. We will
have more information on how
members can purchase the
Level One Partnership Study
Program discounted to $200 for
4-H members (non-members
cost is $350).
Please join us and see what
we have planned for this year.
We will have a lot of fun playing
with our horses and watching


our relationships with them
grow stronger. Contact Renee'
Mims for additional information
on cell number (561) 324-3624.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Stenciling for Beginners
Stenciling can be used to decorate almost any sur-
face, and you don't have to be an artist to have fun
and make quality stencil prints. All you need is a
full-color, 27-page guidebook, "Stenciling Made
Easy For Beginners." The book features all of the
information you need to get started, plus step-by-step
instructions for nine projects. You'll learn tech-
niques such as swirling, pouncing and shading, what
types of paints and brushes to use, how to cut your
own stencils plus much more.
The projects include a French flower bucket, a
wooden planter (pictured above), a canvas vest,
designs for stenciling on walls, a tablecloth and nap-
kins plus four others.

Stenciling Made Easy for Beginners guidebook
