Academy of Finance hosts workshop


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Academy of Finance at
Okeechobee High School
(O.H.S.) is helping students
prepare for future careers in
the finance industry. Eighty-five
percent of those involved in
this program go on to post high
school education. In order to
be eligible to join the Academy,
students must take courses in
business systems technology,
financial operations, account-
ing I, accounting II and finan-
cial planning, in addition to
their normal curriculum.
The four-year old Academy,
which is part of the National
Academy Foundation, currently
has 30 students in grades 10
through 12. They run the on-
campus bank which offers all
students at the school savings
accounts currently earning five
percent interest. The accounts
are completely secure, with
only the individual account
holder having access to the
account. The actual money is
not kept on campus, but at a
local federally insured bank.
The bank has 70 accounts up
and running at this time.
The Academy is run by the
students at O.H.S. under the
supervision of the Academy of
Finance Advisory Board. Stu-
dent officers are Gavin Koepke,

Main Street speaks to Kiwanis


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee Main Street
organization's Executive Direc-
tor Lydia Jean Williams had a
number of details to tell club
members at the weekly Kiwanis
Club meeting on Thursday. Mrs.
Williams stated, "Main Street is
on the right track to a better
downtown Okeechobee," as
she told club members about
some of the new projects that
are currently in the works. She
said that the organization now
has committees formed for the
design, organization and eco-
nomic restructuring of the
downtown district adding that
Main Street's original focus area
has been expanded to include a
larger area for the beautification
process. Mrs. Williams men-


tioned that organization has
published its first newsletter
which is distributed to Main
Street members on a monthly
basis which now includes more
than 100 local businesses as
members.
Main Street President Mau-
reen Burroughs informed fel-
low club members that the new
downtown 'Farmer's Market'
will get under way each week
beginning Nov. 3 from 4 until 7
p.m. in Flagler Park. She said
that fruits, vegetables, many
from the local growers in the
area, meats and fish, breads,
and other fresh food items will
be plentiful at the market.
Guest speaker, Lydia
Williams went on to discuss
some of the upcoming events
and plans for the fall and holi-
day season with a Holiday Festi-


val scheduled for Nov. 29 fol-
lowing the Chamber of Com-
merce 'Tree Lighting' earlier
that day. She told club members
that the event will include holi-
day foods, caroling by local
church members, extended
hours for local businesses and
more, giving local residents a
reason to gather in 'downtown
Okeechobee' for some holiday
spirit.
Kiwanis Club members were
also told that close to $300,000
will be put into refurbishing of
the old jail, with as many as five
years taken for the reconstruc-
tion process.
Another of the programs
mentioned by Mrs. Williams
was 'Main Street Mixers' to take
place at Main Street member

Okeechobee's County Air-
port/Okeechobee Jet Center is
improving its appearance and
expanding its capacity.
Four 65- to 95-foot lights
were installed on the apron
near the terminal on Oct. 13 -
the place where airplanes are
parked for refueling.
This is another in a series of
innovations carried out at the
airport since Vernon Gray took
the position as airport manager
in early August. His charge is to
improve the airport to better
the experience for the
increased number of pilots fly-
ing into Okeechobee.
The first innovation was the
installation of an AWOS system
(Automated Weather Observ-
ing System) that provides 24-
hour information. According to


a previous article in the Okee-
chobee News, AWOS records
such things as visibility, current
weather conditions rain, fog,
haze temperature, dew point,
wind direction and wind speed.
A lightning detector can detect
lighting up to 75 miles from the
airport. The information is
updated every 20 minutes on
AWOS.
Mr. Gray is hopeful that the
innovations will result in .more
commercial traffic at the airport
- an idea whose time has come
- and a resultant increase in
jobs for local residents.
"We have already seen
increased commercial opera-
tions come into this airport,"
Mr. Gray said. He added that
Missionary International may
move over here from West

ing Oct. 12 that an hour long
pre-survey on Nov. 5 will be
conducted at the intersection
of U.S. 441 and S.R. 70. A post-
survey will be done on either
Dec. 3 or Dec. 10. She said
about 100 cars will be surveyed
and the information will be
given to Darrell Addison, CTST


member with Buckle Up Flori-
da.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is inter-
ested in the infrastructure
around schools and transporta-
tion modes for school kids.
Debra Stallings, with FDOT's
District 1, referenced the "Safe
rides to school" program and
said there is some money for
infrastructure and education.
She said all 12 counties in the
district are looking at needs in
school areas and the DOT
needs set priorities.
"It takes about $200,000 to

Workmen with Florida Industrial Electric Co. help to position
a large crane so it can pick up this 95-foot light via heavy
cable at the Okeechobee County Airport on Thurs., Oct. 16.
Four lights that stand either 65 feet or 95 feet were placed
near the terminal to assist the increased traffic load coming
into the airport, said Vernon Gray, airport manager.

walk," Mrs. Stallings said. She
added, "We need a list."
District I may hire a consultant
to work with schools about Linda
Crider's curriculum, which is a
Safe Paths to School Toolkit.
As part of the research, Mrs.
Stallings said they would look at
such information as how kids get
to school, whether they walk or
ride a bus or parents drive them. If
kids do walk, and there are no
sidewalks, so they then walk in
the road and how can that be pre-
vented because it is a safety risk.
While freezing temperatures
are rare in Florida, Mrs. Stallings
talked about the possibility of an
ICE campaign. Such a program
began in the United Kingdom and
is a concept that can be informa-
tive for emergency responders
and law enforcement personnel.
ICE stands for In Case of Emer-
gency and involves cell phones
that are programmed with the
phone number of an ICE partner.
A person's ICE partner would
have a list of medications and
allergies of the person and could
share that information if needed
due to an accident or injury.
Okeechobee Deputy County
Administrator Jim Threewits said
the ICE information could be
important if people travel out of
state.
There may be a way to curb'
accidents on small rural roads if

The airport is normally dark at
night, and pilots flying in at night
already are able to key into a sys-
tem that turns on the runway
lights. This same system will
allow the pilot to also key into the
system to turn on the apron lights.
"The apron lights will stay on
for 15 minutes, and if the pilot
needs more time, he can go to the
switchover on the electric vault
and hit a button. That will give
him 15 more minutes," said Mr.
Gray.

there is a pattern to them. Kevin
Regan, Florida Safety Circuit
Rider, gave an overview of a pilot
program of the State Transporta-
tion Technology Transfer Center
that calls for studying accidents
on low volume rural roads and
offering low-cost remedies,
including improved signs and

According to Mr. Regan, the
Traffic Safety Review Program
began in Mendocino, Calif. As a
result of their studies, they devel-
oped a system with computerized


mapping technology, installed
more or larger road signs on rural
roads, improved road markings,
and reduced the number of acci-
dents by 42 percent.
Mr. Regan has been working
with five counties Okeechobee,
DeSoto, Hardee, Glades and High-

County create a computerized
map and start the program. The
goal is that the information is
reviewed monthly by a group of
people able to implement
change.

Committee meetings and two
full Water Resources'Advisory
Commission (WRAC) meetings
to ensure that the issue was
heard in public forums to obtain
stakeholder input and guidance
before going to today's Govern-
ing Board for adoption. The res-
olution development was
always in process and never
stopped as was erroneously
reported.
The full WRAC and WRAC
Lake Okeechobee Committee
are made up of a diverse cross-
section of public and private-
sector representatives from
environmental and citizen
organizations, agricultural com-
munity, tribal interests, local,
state and federal agencies, utili-
ties and businesses. The com-
mission advises the Governing
Board about water resource
issues.
"Governor Bush has extend-
ed a tremendous opportunity for
us, and I am confident that the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District will exceed the
expectations of our stakehold-
ers," added Michael Collins,
Governing Board Member and
. Water Resources Advisory Com-
mission Chair. "We will work
with the Corps to achieve a bet-
ter balance among manage-
ment objectives flood con-
trol, water supply and
navigation, and the competing
environmental needs of the
lake, estuaries and greater Ever-
glades ecosystem."
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
is expected to revise the lake reg-
ulation schedule by December
2006.. The. ultimate goal is to
achieve lower lake water levels
and reduce high volume fresh-
water flood-control discharges
to the brackish estuaries. As
structural components, such as
the Acceler reservoirs are com-
pleted, the Corps will continue
to revise the schedule. The South
Florida Water Management Dis-




Services will be conducted
on Saturday, Oct. 15, at 11 a.m.,
at the Brighton Seminole Indian
Reservation Cemetery with Pas-
tor Wonder Johns and Gary
Sampson officiating.
All arrangements are under
the care, and direction of the
Buxton Funeral Home and Cre-
matory.


trict and other supporting agen-
cies will be working to revisit
water supply demand estimates,
supply side management strate-
gies and the modeling and
design of forward pumps.
The South Florida Water
Management District is a region-
al, governmental agency that
oversees the water resources in
the southern half of the state -


16 counties from Orlando to the
Keys. It is the oldest and largest
of the state's five water manage-
ment districts. The agency mis-
sion is to manage and protect
water resources of the region by
balancing and improving water
quality, flood control, natural
systems and water supply. A key
initiative is cleanup and restora-
tion of the Everglades.


Campground now


requires permits


The South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) reports that mem-
bers of the public wishing to
camp at the public use area
adjacent to the S65C naviga-
tion locks off of U.S. Hwy 98
near Lorida, will soon be
required to get a free special
use permit. In the past, no per-
mit was required.
In order to give more peo-
ple an opportunity to enjoy this
popular spot in the future,
campers will be limited to a
maximum of five consecutive


days and a limit of 30 days per
year. Previously there was no
limit to the number of days,
consecutive or otherwise, that
people could camp in this
area. These new rules will go
into effect as soon as signs are
posted and will be enforced by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission.
To obtain your free special
use permit to camp at the S65C
Locks Campground, please

chobee Service Center at (863)

ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
INSURANCE: I see the issue about the police officers taking their kids
to school in patrol cars. I just want to know about the liability factor. If
something happens while in the police car, whose liability is that? As far
as the safety factor goes, I think the kids don't know one way or the other
about the safety factor if they see a police car there. My concern is what if
one of the kids gets hurt or something? (Editor's Note: We spoke with
local law enforcement about this and were told the officer's personal
insurance would be responsible for any claims.)

MUSIC COMPLAINTS: About the homecoming dance Saturday night,
there were complaints about the music. What everyone may not know is
that some equipment was damaged and some CDs were stolen. The
school does not feel as though they should reimburse him for his loss and
that is their choice. However, I think that the situation should not be
ignored. The DJ did this for free and it is a shame that there is so little
respect. As school administrators, students, teachers and parents, we
should all be embarrassed.

HOMECOMING: My child attends the high school. I was surprised that
the tickets to the homecoming dance were so expensive at $17 per per-
son, or $30 per couple. Many kids did not go because their parents could
not afford it. I did buy a ticket for my child and expected it would be really
nice and serve some kind of food if they were charging so much. I was
disappointed to hear that they had a student disc jockey playing music,
some decorations and some punch. I am wondering what they spent all
that money on? With 300 students attending, they probably collected
nearly $5,000 in ticket sales. If they spent all that money on decorations, I
would say next time they should use less expensive decorations and
charge less so more kids can afford to participate. For a dance like that, $5
per person would have been much more appropriate. Charging $17 a
child seems pretty steep. (Editor's Note: We contacted OHS Principal
Gary Kirsch with your concerns, and he said: "Yes, there were decora-
tions. I've never seen the gym look so good. Yes, there was a disc jockey,
but it was not a student. It was a teacher. In reference to food, we had
between 50 and 100 pizzas delivered. We also had veggie platters,
chips and Swedish meatballs. As to the money, the homecoming dance
has traditionally been a senior class fundraiser. I was very proud of the
job they did. We had approximately 500 students in attendance and
everything went very well. It was a great event. The last comment I
received was from a student as he left the gym. He said, 'Thank you, Mr.
Kirsch, for letting us have this dance. It was great.'")

WINDOWS: Why don't builders put hurricane proof window glass
when they build the homes? (Editor's Note: Certain areas such as St.
Lucie and Martin counties are required to install windows that can
withstand heavier wind pressure. These areas are designated by the
state as wind borne debris areas. Okeechobee does not fall into this
designation. However, as we were told by an official with the Okee-
chobee County Building Department, these windows would be a wise
investment. Local code requirements call for new homes to have win-
dows that can withstand wind speeds up to 120 mph.)

RATE OF PAY: How can the superintendent of schools make close to
$100,000 year when the police, the deputies and the detectives put their
lives on the line and they don't even make half that much each year?

FCAT: I would like to agree with the person who called in about how
our kids are being burdened by all this work expected at an early age. I
would like to take it a step farther. I have a daughter in high school. She
makes As and Bs in class but has trouble with some subjects on the FCAT.
This FCAT test is making some kids drop out of high school. I would just
like to see President Bush take the FCAT and pass it. He's the one impos-
ing it on us he and his brother Jeb. Many of the kids get good grades in
class but have problems with the test. They must pass all areas of the
FCAT before they can graduate high school. It is avery stressful test. With
all of the problems in the world right now, we need to lay off our children
with the added stress.

WATER RELEASES: I just read in the paper about how Governor Jeb
Bush is planning to waste more money on Lake Okeechobee water
releases by putting in containment areas for the water. That is a waste of
money.and ridiculous. I called in about a series of pipes at the south end
of the lake turned up at a certain level where the flow can come into the
pipes and then flow through the Everglades like they should. From the
pipes to the canals, farmers can use the water for irrigation and the rest
can go to the Everglades. Once these containment areas are full, we are
back to step one with releases to the coast and a big waste of money.

APPROVAL RATINGS: I see where President Bush is back down to
take his eighth trip to the Gulf Coast, and spending all that money for air-
plane fuel that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. What is he trying
to do? Is he trying to get people to believe in him after what he's done? He
is trying to bolster his ratings with the people because his ratings are
down to the ground.

FWC seeks help in developing program


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is seeking partners to help
launch its new Youth Hunting
Program. The program aims to
provide quality hunting experi-
ences for 12- to 17-year-olds to
increase the number of youths
involved in hunting.
The FWC is looking for
landowners and/or hunting clubs
to host weekend youth hunts; vol-
unteers to be trained as huntmas-
ters, hunter safety instructors,
cooks or guides; and organiza-
tions to help sponsor this new
program.
Because the number of
hunters in Florida has declined
during the past decade, the FWC

OHS discount cards
are now being sold
The OHS Brahman boys and
girls basketball teams are selling
their annual discount cards for $10
each.
The card offers continuous dis-
counts to 18 various businesses
throughout the year.
If you would like to purchase
your discount card, contact coach
Enrico or coach Pung at (863) 462-
5043.

Taekwondo school
hosts golf tourney
Russ Adams Taekwondo will
host a golf tournament on Oct. 15
to raise money to send their stu-
dents to the national tournament.
The tourney will begin with an 8
a.m. shotgun start, and will be a
four-person scramble. The fee is
$45 per person and includes 18
holes of golf and lunch. There will
be trophies for first, second and last
place, as well as door prizes.
Hole sponsorships are $100.
Donations are also welcome.
For information or to register,
contact the Okeechobee Golf and
Country Club at (863) 763-6228; or,
Sunni Adams at (863) 697-0499.


is looking to establish relation-
ships with other concerned con-
servation organizations to use this
program as a tool to recruit and
train tomorrow's safe
hunters. The Shikar Safari Club
already has partnered with the
FWC and is providing the funding
for initial start-up costs, but the
program is going to require sub-
stantially more assistance if it is to
be successful.
While introducing Florida's
youth to the hunting tradition, the
Youth Hunting Program can ben-
efit landowners by assisting them
with their wildlife management
practices by helping them reduce
does, hogs and other species the
biologists want to manage on


their property. All the landowners
or hunting clubs need to do is pro-
vide access to their land, and the
FWC will do the rest.
"We promise to run safe, posi-
tive, educational and mentored
youth hunts and are looking for all
types of year-round hunting
opportunities including deer,
turkey, hogs, exotics, dove, small
game and waterfowl," said Alan
Busenbark, FWC's hunter safety
business manager.
"The goal for the first year of
the program is to train at least 25
volunteers throughout the state to
be huntmasters to lead future
youth-training hunts. Along with
enlisting these volunteers, anoth-
er goal is to establish landowner


relationships and secure addition-
al funding to ensure the future
growth of the program," Busen-
bark said.
If you are a landowner or hunt-
ing club wishing to donate a
weekend youth hunt on your
property, an individual who can
volunteer your time and expertise
in planning and leading youth
hunts or an organization who can
help sponsor this unique pro-
gram, contact Alan Busenbark at
(850) 413-0084 or by e-mail at
alan.busenbark@MyFWC.com.

FWC sets dates for dove hunting


Attention
wingshooters! Dove hunting,
one of Florida's favorite hunting
seasons, began recently, and
other migratory game bird sea-
sons are just around the corner.
Hunters may take mourning
and white-winged doves during
three hunting periods
statewide. First phase runs
through Oct. 24, second phase is
Nov. 12-27 and third phase runs
Dec. 10-Jan. 8. Shooting hours
for the first phase are noon to
sunset, and for the second and
third phases, shooting hours are
one-half hour before sunrise to
sunset. The daily bag limit is 12,
but only four may be white-
winged doves.
Snipe season is Nov. 1 Feb.


15 statewide. The daily bag limit
is eight, and shooting hours are
one-half hour before sunrise to
sunset.
Woodcock are legal to take
statewide Dec. 17 Jan. 15. The
daily bag limit is three, and
shooting hours are one-half
hour before sunrise to sunset.
Crows are legal game
statewide on Saturdays and Sun-
days only through Oct. 30, then
everyday Nov. 11 Feb. 18.
There are no bag or possession
limits, and shooting hours are
one-half hour before sunrise to
sunset.
In addition to having a hunt-
ing license, a migratory bird per-
mit is also required to take
migratory game birds in Florida.


In order to receive this permit,
hunters have to fill out a short
questionnaire when they pur-
chase their hunting license. The
information they provide helps
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice get a better assessment on
how many birds are harvested
each year.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) suggest hunters peruse
the "2005-06 Migratory Bird Reg-
ulations" brochures and the
"2005-06 Florida Hunting Regu-
lations" handbook at
MyFWC.com/hunting. These
publications also are available
from county tax collectors'
offices and license agents.


Brahman bowlers split matches


The Brahman girls' and boys'
bowling teams traveled to Port
St. Lucie Lanes Tuesday to take
on the Panthers from Ft. Pierce
Westwood. The teams split their
matches with the Lady Brah-
mans winning and the Brahman
boys losing. Both matches were
hard-fought especially the boys
who were taking on the second
place Panthers.
The Brahman boys took their
team to the limit each game
winning one out of three
games, but also taking total pins
for a 4 to, 3 match. The boys
were led by Josh Stanley's 660
series (212, 222 and 226 high
games), Michael Minnick's 632
series (197, 225 and 210 high


games), Robert Rodriguez's 202
and 200 highs and Sonny
Lowe's 203 high. This loss still
moved the boys' team into third
place.
The ladies had a little easier,
much needed, win taking all
three games and total pins.
They were led by Christy Perry's
180, 212 and 172 high games
and Alicia Valganiant's 166 high.
The Ladies' record now goes to
four and six.
Both Brahman teams will be
on the road for the remainder of
the season beginning today
against Sebastian River in Vero.
This match will pit the third
place Brahman boys against the
Sebastian River Sharks. They
