nine years in
Okee-

taking a step '
forward into
a new posi-

He will Romero

Judicial Circuit State Attorney's
office in Martin County. He said


on Thursday, Oct. 6, his last day
in Okeechobee, that his new
duties will be similar to what
the district attorney's office
does.
"My function will be to
enforce the law through the
prosecution of criminal cases,"
he said in a soft-spoken voice.
In Okeechobee, he ran the
day-to-day operations of the
state attorney's office. In his
new position, he will prosecute
the more serious cases of capi-
tal murder when the death
penalty is a possibility, he
explained.

his career path.
"I was a military brat, and as a
result of being a military brat I
developed a sense of public serv-
ice," he said.
He has been a prosecutor for
16 years, and prior to that he was
a public defender for four years.
"This is the most rewarding
- job I have ever had," he said.
He added that he was grateful
to his boss, Bruce Colton, state
attorney of the Nineteenth Judi-


cial Circuit.
"He gave me this opportunity,
and I thank him for that," Mr.
Romero said.
Because of his genteel man-
ner, it was hard to imagine him as
a tough prosecutor. He explained
it by saying he has two personas.
"There is the homebody, the
father and the guy who likes a
practical joke. And there is the
other persona in court the role
I have to take because of the job I
do. The roles are something very
different from each other," he
said.
Mr. Romero will begin his new
duties on Monday, Oct. 10.

MIAMI Save Our Sum-
mers, a grassroots movement
of parents, students and educa-
tors opposed to the early school
start dates in Florida,
announced today that State Rep-
resentative Dan Gelber (District
106) filed bill No. HB 177, man-
dating schools begin sessions
no earlier than seven days
before Labor Day. Senator Gwen
Margolis (Dist..35) is co-spon-
soring the bill and Representa-
tives Ralph Arza and Eleanor
Sobel have expressed interest in
filing a bill with a start date after
Labor Day.
Since launching Save Our
Summers in August, the organi-
zation has received more than
2,000 e-mails through its Web
site at
www.saveoursummers.org
from parents and educators


concerned about the negative
impact that starting school in
early August has on our teach-
ers, children and families. The
Web site enables taxpayers to
contact their legislators and
school board members directly.
"Ordinary parents have been
unable to get the school-calen-
dar issue to the attention of their
local school boards," said Sher-
ry Sturner, Executive Director,
SaveourSummers.org. "Parents
across the state have felt power-
less against the creeping back of
the start of the school year.
Through Save Our Summers,
we're helping to ensure that
voices of parents are heard and
heeded on this important issue."
Among the concerns of sup-
porters of Save Our Summers:
Florida schools are wasting
millions in precious education

dollars to pay high utility bills
associated with non-traditional
calendars.
Teachers have a tougher
time earning advanced degrees
because summer college learn-
ing opportunities are severely
limited and teachers lose large
blocks of time needed to pre-
pare curriculum and to assess
test data.
High school students miss
out on summer job opportuni-
ties or are forced to work more
during the school year to earn
the same many once earned
during the summer.
Families lose out on quality
time together during summer
vacations and outings.
One of the myths of the
creeping back of the school start
date is that it somehow provides
additional days of classroom


instruction. It doesn't! Instead,
students are ending the school
year in mid-May, much earlier
than the rest of the country.
The most important criticism
of the early-August school start
date is the mounting evidence
that shows it has no academic
impact in the classroom. Stan-
dardized student test scores
don't improve based on an earli-
er school start date, despite
arguments by some educators
that it gives students an edge.
Mrs. Sturner continued,
"We're asking parents to visit
www.saveoursummers.org and
let their voices be heard. Use our
Web site to contact your local
school board representatives,
superintendents and elected
state officials. Together, we can
take back our summer."

RESPECT AND OBEY: I agree with the first complaint about the
cops driving their kids to school in the cop cars. I too pay taxes. I have
never seen an ambulance, or a fire truck drop their kids at school. Nor
a FedEx, or a mailman's car dropping their kids at school. Why don't
the cops respect and obey that too? When I drive, I don't need a cop
nearby to feel safe or slow up. I just respect the law. This talk is about
the gas prices, and people paying taxes. Not for cops to take advantage
of other people's tax. They too have to respect and obey.

BIRD FLU: Years ago I heard about a plague was coming that was
going to be worse than AIDS. I hope it is not the Bird Flu.

JUNKYARDS I am glad that summer is over. Now the zoning offi-
cials can take off their dark glasses and see the streets and yards in the
southeastern section of the county, such as cars and junk and high
grass. Talk about junkyards?

4 OPINION







The Okeechobee News, Friday, October 7, 2005


Tax relief provided to Katrina evacuees


ATLANTA For Katrina evac-
uees now living in other states,
there may be tax relief on the hori-
zon, federal and state recovery offi-
cials said.
Because of a special Hurricane
Katrina relief bill enacted by Con-
gress and signed into law on Sept.
23, Katrina-impacted taxpayers in
disaster-declared counties no
longer have to deduct 10 percent of
their adjusted gross income and a
$100 deductible to claim disaster
losses on their federal taxes.
Under the legislation, Katrina
victims who can itemize deduc-
tions will be able to claim their
entire disaster loss, minus any
insurance payments or other reim-
bursements. Some tax filers may
find that hurricane losses enable
them to itemize deductions when
they might not have otherwise
qualified to do so.
The new law also:
Allows Katrina victims to
withdraw up to $100,000 without
tax penalties from certain retire-
ment accounts, such as 401(k)
plans and Individual Retirement
Accounts, to pay for disaster-relat-
ed needs.
Suspends limits on individual
cash contributions made to quali-
fied charities beginning August 28,


2005 through Dec. 31,2005.
Provides a tax benefit for peo-
ple who volunteer to take in Katri-
na victims, a $500 deduction for
each person they house for at least
six months, up to acap of $2,000.
"We want everyone who suf-
fered a loss to get the maximum
benefits available. Having your
taxes reduced is one of those bene-
fits," said Paul Fay, FEMA's federal
coordinating officer at the Atlanta
Joint Field Office.
"The U.S. Internal Revenue Ser-
vice (IRS) allows people in federal-
ly-declared counties with casualty
losses from the disaster to claim
this year's losses on last year's tax
return, or to amend last year's
return if it's already been filed,"
said Dan Boone, media specialist
for the IRS. "This can give you a
quicker refund than filing the loss
with your 2005 tax return. Howev-
er, waiting to claim the loss on this
year's return might result in a
greater tax saving, depending on
other income factors."
To see how the law applies to
their individual situation, evacuees
should see a tax consultant or talk
with the IRS for specifics.. More
information is available online at
www.irs.gov and at the Congres-
sional Joint Committee on Taxa-


tion website, www.house.gov/jct.
People who have registered for
disaster assistance by calling toll-
free 1-800-621-3362 or (TTY) 1-800-
462-7585 can talk with an IRS rep-
resentative at any of the disaster
recovery centers set up in Georgia,
Tennessee, North Carolina, South
Carolina and Kentucky to help Kat-
rina victims.
The IRS also has established a
toll-free hotline for hurricane vic-
tims at 1-866-562-5227 which oper-
ates from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday
through Friday. There, callers can
find out about available tax relief,
get free copies of their tax return
transcripts and receive disaster tax
loss kits. To calculate a federal
casualty loss deduction, go to the
IRS website at www.irs.gov or read
IRS Publication 547, "Casualties,
Disasters and Thefts."


For state income tax waivers or
other benefits for Katrina victims,
evacuees should check with the
state tax office where they formerly
resided. Property tax reductions
may also be available in certain
jurisdictions. For that information,
evacuees are urged to consult the
tax office in the county or parish
where their property is located.
FEMA prepares the nation for all
hazards and manages federal
response and recovery efforts fol-
lowing any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitigation activ-
ities, trains first responders, works
with state and local emergency
managers, and manages the
National Flood Insurance Program
and the U.S. Fire Administration.
FEMA became part of the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security
on March 1,2003.

Brahmans host Blue Streaks at homecoming


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Brahmans
(3-3) will host the Sebring Blue
Streaks (1-4) tonight at Brahman
Stadium. Homecoming festivities
are scheduled prior to the game
with the crowning of the home-
coming king and queen taking
place at half-time (weather per-
mitting).


"The Blue Streaks' record is
not indicative of the quality of the
team," stated Brahman head
coach Chris Branham. "They play
some of the top-rated teams in
the state. They are tough. They
play the kind of football that we
do; hard and aggressive. Their
offense has a talented running
back and quarterback. Their
defense plays right at the line of
scrimmage. It will be another


tough game. But, we played very
well last week. We were almost
flawless. If we continue to play
that way, we will be tough to
beat."
The Brahmans took on the
Sebastian River Sharks last Friday
night in a hard-fought match-up
that kept fans on their feet right
down to the wire. The Brahmans
were within an arm's throw of
the goal line in the closing


moments of the game, only to
lose the ball on downs to the
Sharks.
The Brahmans' conference
record now stands at 0-1.
Tonight's battle with the Blue
Streaks is a non-conference
game. The Brahmans will host
another conference rival, Ft.
Pierce Westwood, on Oct. 14 at
Brahman Stadium. Kick-off is
scheduled for 7:30 p.m.

Kindergarten
The students in Mrs. Cassel's
kindergarten have been learning
about the four seasons. We cre-
ated season collages. Now we
are learning about fall. We

ings and help our school.

bons, Tall Tickets, Apple Pattern
