,Vayaliers looking
to upset Seminoles
CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. -
As anniversaries go, this one is
surely one of the favorites in
Virginia's football history. It
was 10 years ago, a Thursday
night, all eyes on Scott Stadi-
um as George Welsh's Cava-
liers beat No. 2 Florida State,
33-28.
Memories of that game still
warm the hearts of Virginia
fans everywhere, and even of
their coach, Al Groh, who was
an assistant with the NFL's
New England Patriots at the
time and got to watch his son
Mike quarterback the Cava-
liers to the victory.

County paves


way for new


concrete plant


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It was a day for land develop-
ment transactions Thursday as
the Okeechobee County Board
of County Commissioners con-
ducted 10 public hearings on
zoning changes.
The county board also con-
sidered plat approval for three
proposed subdivisions at their
bimonthly meeting.
Expected opposition to two
of the proposed zoning changes
did not materialize.
Residents of the area around
Ihe proposed site of Royal Con-
crete Concepts' concrete plant
adjacent to the Livestock Market


seemed to have given up their
fight against a zoning change
after coming out in numbers at
the Sep. 27 planning board
meeting to protest the proposed
change.
The company was founded
in 1997 and claims to have built
1,700 precast concrete buildings
since that time. The company
has outgrown their Palm Beach,
County facilities and had
requested a change in zoning
from agriculture to heavy indus-
trial for the property in question.
The proposed plant would
eventually employ 1,000 people.

Professionals at New Endeavor celebrate achievements


The faculty and staff of New
Endeavor High School (NEHS)
would like to congratulate the
students for successfully com-
pleting the first nine week mark-
ing period. The period ended
Wednesday, Oct. 12 and report
cards will be coming home Fri-
day, Oct. 21.
With the Florida Comprehen-
sive Assessment Test (FCAT)
only a few short months away,
we want to encourage parents
and community members to
continue offering support for the
students, faculty, and staff who
strive on a daily basis to achieve
excellence. The faculty is com-


NEHS
mitted to supporting this expec-
tation by taking part in a mentor-
ing program. This program is a
school-wide initiative originally
proposed by Ms. Rosemnary Mor-
gan, a ninth grade teacher. Stu-
dents who participate in this pro-
gram are paired with an adult
who meets with them regularly
to emphasize the importance of
school success. Some mentors
have gone to great lengths to
make these students feel irhpor-
tant. They pull them out of class


for a doughnut and a chance to
talk and to get to know one
another. They discuss past per-
formance on FCAT tests and
offer them help with homework
or studying for test or quizzes.
Sometimes they even go to
lunch at Beef O'Brady's, or other
local establishments where the
students are treated to a meal
free of charge.
It is the belief of the faculty
and staff at New Endeavor that
everyone can contribute to stu-
dent achievement. The ladies
and gentlemen in the main office
are active participants in the
mentoring program. Ruby Eng-


lish serves as a receptionist and
a sympathetic ear, listening to
concerns brought to her desk by
students and parents alike. Terry
Griffin, the principal's secretary
and bookkeeper, is often over-
heard talking to students about
the importance of making good
decisions. Bruce Quinlan, NEHS
data processor, enjoys spending
time with his students, and he
always has lunch money if a stu-
dent has forgotten to bring
enough to cover the cost. Cathy
Vlkojan, the attendance clerk;
doubles as a cheering section
when a child performs well on a
classroom assignment.


Sarah Baker, Vision Quest
data processor, can be seen re-
reading the instructions on a
sheet of practice problems that a
student may be having difficulty
completing. Frank Tagle, the
head custodian, shows many
students the importance of
being thorough and staying with
a difficult task until it is complet-
ed. Robin Whipple helps stu-
dents as the school nurse and
gives students assistance in
many ways. Ms. Sue Horrick
watches over everyone, faculty,
students, and staff alike. She is a
smiling face that provides warm
words of encouragement.


These dedicated individuals
are only a small part of the car-
ing group of professionals that
work to make the mentoring
program and all of the wonder-
ful programs at New Endeavor
High School a success story cur-
rently being written in Okee-
chobee County. Thank these
people when you see-them, and
let them know they are doing a
wonderful job.
If you are interested in the
mentoring program offered at
New Endeavor High School, or
any of the other programs we
have to offer, please contact
Andy Brewer, principal, at
(863)462-5125.


OMS congratulates its Milers of the Week ha*


Once again, the Oscoela Middle
School (OMS) PE department is
proud of their Milers of the Week.
Congratulations to eighth grader
Lionel Jones, with the best time in
the school for the first nine weeks,
running the mile in 6:16. We also
congratulate Adrian Valdez, who
ran undefeated as
the fastest boy in
the seventh grade
for the t
entire nine g
weeks. l T
We're also
proud to announce other top mil-
ers Yesica Albarran from the eighth
grade, Karalyn Wyman from the
seventh grade, and sixth graders
Kyle Hearld and Karli Holtkamp.
The OMS volleyball team fin-.
ished their regular season with two
victories over Gifford Middle
School on Monday. The B team
was led by terrific serving from
Jamie Cox and Jordan Maynard.
The girls have shown great
improvement in passing, especially
by Samantha Fletcha, Karli
Holtkamp, and Carissa Tyson. The
team's big power in the front row
came from Marie Renfranz, Taydra
DelPrete, and Callie Yates, assisted
by Ali Nunez's great setting. Coach
Jackson thanks the team for a great
season.
In post-season action, the vol-
leyball team defeated Sebastian
River Middle School and will
advance to the semi-finals of the
Treasure Coast Conference Tour-
nament. OMS will play at Stuart
Middle School on Wednesday, Oct.
19. Regardless of the results, the
LadyWarriors have made an excel-
lent showing this year, and OMS is
extremely proud.

4 OPINION The Okeehobee News, Saturday, October 15, 2005


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues blog at http://newsblog.info/0904. It is a
hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and
share your comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please).
You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or sending e-mail
to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
GREEN MARKET: Why not use the Okeechobee County Agri-
Civic Center for the Green Market? There's lots of parking, no down-
town congestion and it is a way to finally use the center on a regular
basis.

WATER PRESSURE: I live in the Treasure Island, Taylor Creek
area and I was wondering, they are spending so much money trying
to build a new wastewater plant, but how are they going to get rid of
wastewater if they can't keep the water pressure up in Treasure
Island? I was taking a shower and halfway through the water pres-
sure quit for nearly five minutes, before the pressure built back up. I
don't have a well. I expect water pressure. Please fix the problem.

GOOD IDEA: I think that the Green Market is a wonderful idea but
I think that Flagler Park is the wrong place to have it. There is no
place to park during that time of day..I think the K-Mart parking lot
would be a better place. Just a thought.

THANK YOU: I want to thank some people from a local painting
company for helping me. I am handicapped and they bought the
paint and painted my whole trailer for me and I just want to say
thank you and God bless.

LETTERS: I want to thank J.K. Murray II for his letters to the edi-
tor on Saturday, Oct. 8. He's right on the money. As I see it, it's up to
God from now on.

LIABILITY: Enough with the police dropping their kids off at
school! I have heard enough of that. However, no one has yet
answered the question about whose liability it would be if there was
an accident with a child in the car. (Editor's Note: We answered this
question earlier this week. In case of an accident under this sce-
nario, the deputy's personal insurance would be held liable.)

EXPENSIVE TICKETS: I am wondering what they spent the
money for as it really seems like a rip-off to me. I know some kids
who did not get to go because the tickets cost too much. It would be
better to keep the price down so more kids can afford to attend. In
many cases, they can borrow clothes from friends or relatives but
couldn't manage the $17 per person ticket price. High school activi-
ties should be priced so all can attend. (Editor's Note: Please see the
answer to the preceding call.)

HOMECOMING DANCE: Seventeen dollars a person is a little
expensive for a school dance. A lot of people in this town cannot
afford that and it isn't right to exclude children from school activities
because they don't have extra money to spend. When I was in high
school the only dance that we paid for was prom. We did fundrais-
ers for the money needed for other dances. We'd wash cars or hold
a bake sale or something. Then, all students could come to the
dance at no charge. The only ones who were not allowed to attend
were those who were under some kind of discipline for misbehav-
ing. Considering the economic hardships many families in this town
are currently facing, I think this might be something to consider.

WAITING FOR THE BUS: I was just reading about a high school
student over in Port St. Lucie and because he had to get up and wait
for the bus before the sun came up, he was killed while waiting for
the bus. I have a daughter in high school and it is terrible how they
have to get up so early and wait for the bus in-ithe dark. The kids are
so overly tired from the early hours and then they have to get to the
bus before the sun comes up. Why can't the heVurs forlhe kids to go
to school be switched around so the kids can go to school in the
daylight hours? They could just shift the time around by an hour or
so. If it is a problem with the busses, get more busses. A life is worth
more than that.

MUSIC ROOM: South Elementary School has their music pro-
gram in the cafeteria. The area is so crowded because it is parti-
tioned off. Is there any reason that the music program cannot have a
portable classroom for students?

Guest Commentary


Sheets of drywall taken from home site


On Monday, Oct. 9, between
4:30 and 6:30 p.m., someone
stole a large stack of new drywall
from in front of the house being
built by Habitat for Humanity on
34th Avenue in Basswood.
This was no small task as the
drywall weighs about two tons.
There were about 14 4 x 12
sheets of 1/2-inch drywall and 20
-4 x 12 sheets of 5/8-inch drywall.
The thieves had to have a large


truck or trailer to haul the material
away and several people to load it
up. They would have likely driven
around the Basswood area look-
ing for this because the street is
not a through street. They had to
plan to steal this drywall.
We know there are many
people in need in our communi-
ty. To steal material that was ded-
icated to helping families get a
simple, decent and affordable

and a win that we needed head-
ing into district play next week,"
explained Brahman head coach
George May. "It's not that we've
been playing terrible ball, but
we've been playing listless. Our
hearts just haven't been in. it.
Tonight we definitely played
with more emotion. We'll need
to play that way to advance out
of districts."
Katie Bryan also played well,
recording seven kills, three


blocks, nine digs and six service
points. Tierra Allen added seven
kills and 10 digs. Sophomore
Lauren Throop came up big

a four-game win streak for the
Brahmans that includes victories

coast program whose varsity

tively.

these girls have taken their game
to a higher level over the past
few weeks," said junior varsity


coach Beverly Man. "Sopho-
more Katie Murrow has been
especially instrumental to our
success with her leadership on
and off the court.
Freshman Courtney Marker
has been solid at the net all sea-
son. Freshman setters Taylor
Pritchard and Kari Berger has
shown a lot of poise running the
offense. I'm also very pleased
with the play of Jordyn Nealis
and another freshman,
Stephanie Horvath. Our team
has really come together."

Reflections from tl


By Dr. Randy Huckabee
Senior pastor, First Baptist
Church of Okeechobee
"For you know the grace of
our Lord Jesus Christ, that
though He was rich, yet for
your sakes He became poor,
that you through His poverty
might become rich."II Corinthi-
ans 8:9
Hey!!! I got great news for
you! You have won the lottery!
No, not the Florida Lottery but
the Heavenly one. That is exact-
ly what happens when you
invite Christ into your life and
you become one with Him. You
have probably heard many
opponents of the lottery stand
on the premise that no one
wins without millions losing.
Yes, one may win, but there are
millions who have taken their
dollars and placed their hope
on a set of numbers. Only the
Lord really knows how many


homes are suffering tonight
due to the lottery draining the
household budget of those
who are unable to fight the
temptation of a quick fix. There
is no easy way out of the finan-
cial jungle. Even in the econo-
my of Heaven, Christ knew
there was no easy way to bring
redemption.
Paul reminds us that Christ
had to be'willing to give up
everything so we might gain
everything! Yes, He gave up the
praises of the angels for the
jeers of the crowd; the regal
robe of a King for a carpenter's
cloak; endless days in glory for
weary nights in Galilee;
never tiring in Heaven for
the exhaustion of crossing the
hillside. Jesus gave up every-
thing. He gave it up so we could
be winners! Why would any-
one do such a thing? Two rea-
sons: Grace and Love. God
loves us so much, He was will-


ie Pulpit

ing to submit His Eternal Son to
a short life in humanity. Only
through something so pure and
holy as Christ could we have
any hope of being reconciled to
the Father.
Still, we ask why? How can
He love us that much and yet
know that we are wicked, sinful
creatures? That's where the
grace comes in. Grace is unex-
plainable. Grace is undeserved.
One preacher spelled it out:
God's Riches At Christ's
Expense. Thank you Jesus, that
is grace. The wonderful news is
that grace abounds. Even after.
we are saved, it is grace that
separates us from our old sin
nature and makes us one with
Christ. That is why the Father
can now look at you and see no
imperfection. You are in
Christ.... God sees His Son
when He looks at you! It's just a
thought.

David Goldfield to speak at FAU


Florida Atlantic University's
Department of History presents
"Religion and Politics: An Ameri-
can Tradition," a lecture by David
Goldfield, the Robert Lee Bailey
Professor of History at the Univer-
sity of North Carolina in
Charlotte. The lecture will take
place on Monday, Oct. 31 at 2
p.m. in the Live Oak Pavilion at
the University Center on FAU's
Boca Raton campus, 777 Glades
Road. The lecture is free and open
to the public.
The current battles over
church and state involving school
prayer, the Ten Commandments,
gay marriage and the teaching of
evolution are part of an ongoing
historical dialogue about the
place of religion in American pub-
lic life. Goldfield will look at these
battles and explore such ques-
tions as What did the Founding
Fathers say about the role of reli-
gion in the political arena? How
did the conflicts between church
and state in the nineteenth centu-
ry shape our nation? What can
we learn about them to under-
stand the current debate?
Goldfield is the author or edi-
tor of 13 books dealing with the
history of the American South,
including two works, Cotton
Fields and Skyscrapers: Southern
City and Region (1982) and Black,
White, and Southern: Race Rela-
tions and Southern Culture
(1991), which were nominated
for the Pulitzer Prize in
history. Still Fighting the Civil War:
The American South and South-
ern History received the Jules and
Frances Landry Prize. His most
recent book is Southern Histories:
Public, Personal, and Sacred, and
he is currently working on a re-
interpretation of the Civil War,
"Rebirth of a Nation: America
During the Civil War Era."
Goldfield was named Distin-
guished Lecturer in 2001 by The
Organization of American Histori-
ans. He also serves as an expert
witness in voting rights and death


penalty cases, a consultant on the
American South to museums and
public television and radio, and
serves as an Academic Specialist
in the U.S. State Department,
leading workshops on American
history and culture in foreign
countries.
The lecture, presented by the
Department of History in FAU's
Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts
and Letters, is the second in the
John O'Sullivan Memorial Lecture
Series. The series was initiated as
a tribute to the late John O'Sulli-
van, a former chair of FAU's histo-
ry department who devoted his
entire academic career to
FAU. Inspired by O'Sullivan's
dynamic teaching, several of his
former students donated money
to initiate a lecture series in his
honor.

the lecture or the series, call 561-

Rescue efforts end in quake zone


Speak Out is online!
Discuss topics of local concern at:
http://www.newszapforums.com/forum58/


By Zarar Khan
Associated Press Writer
MUZAFFARABAD, Pakistan
(AP) Authorities Friday ended
search and rescue operations for
any survivors trapped in the rubble
of last week's earthquake, and
thunderstorms forecast for the
region threatened to disrupt relief
efforts for millions left homeless
and hungry by the disaster.
Aid workers held mass burials
and rushed to set up tent camps for
an estimated 2 million homeless
before the rains hit in the
Himalayan region of Kashmir.
With Pakistan's death toll esti-
mated at more than 35,000, offi-
cials said there was virtually no
hope of finding more people
beneath tens of thousands of col-
lapsed buildings. India has report-
ed more than 1,350 deaths on the
side of Kashmir it controls from the
magnitude-7.6 quake on Oct. 8.
"The first phase is search and
rescue. As a phase, that has now.
ended," said Jan Egeland, the U.N.
.undersecretary-general and emer-
gency relief coordinator. "It's a
cruel reality. But after a week, very
few people survive."
Added U.N. spokesman Win-
ston Chang: "We are all of the view
that there is a less than 1 percent
chance of survival on the seventh
day."
At a news conference in Islam-
abad, Egeland said aid agencies
were now focusing on providing
food and shelter to the millions
who need it.
Egeland, who has traveled to
the hardest-hit areas, also said
coordination among the hundreds
of aid groups in the quake zone
was vital to the relief effort.
"If we don't work together, we
will become a disaster within a dis-
aster," he said. "It will take billions
of dollars to rebuild. ... This will
take five to 10 years."
Mohammed Hanif, a senior
meteorologist in Islamabad, said
rain was expected in the capital,
the Himalayan region of Kashmir
and other parts of the country.
"Rains with thunderstorm will
definitely disrupt relief operations

A Spanish rescue worker and a sniffer dog make a final
search in the northern Pakistani town of Muzaffarabad, one
of the worst hit areas of last Saturday's earthquake, Friday
Oct. 14. With the death toll believed to be more than 35,000,
Pakistan on Friday called off the search for survivors of last
week's earthquake to concentrate on helping the millions left
homeless and the tens of thousands left injured.


in earthquake-hit areas," he said.
Earlier this week, heavy rains
and hailstorms grounded helicop-
ters flying food and other supplies
to devastated areas, and snow has
already started to fall in some areas.
of Kashmir.
During an earlier visit to the dev-
astated city of Muzaffarabad, the
capital of Pakistani Kashmir, Ege-
land said millions urgently need
food, medicine, shelter and blan-
kets,
"I fear we are losing the race
against the clock in the small vil-
lages" cut off by blocked roads, he
said. "I've never seen such devasta-
tion before."
Many exhausted relief workers
were dealing with the added bur-
den of fasting during daytime
hours for the Muslim holy month
of Ramadan.
Maj. Farooq Nasir, an army
spokesman in Muzaffarabad, said
the search and rescue operation
had ended. Army officials in Bahl
akot, another of the hardest-hit
towns in northwest Pakistan, said
they were shifting the rubble of col-
lapsed. buildings and removing
dead bodies.
Water and electricity were


restored to parts of Muzaffarabad,
a city of about 600,000. Authorities
were also working to fix grid sta-
tions to bring power back to outly-
ing villages.
The country's relief commis-
sioner, Maj. Gen. Farooq Ahmad
Khan, said Pakistan expected to get
2 million blankets and 100,000
large tents before the onset of win-
ter. He said 200,000 houses had

From daybreak, Pakistani mili-
tary helicopters and choppers from
other countries flew in and out of a
sports stadium in Muzaffarabad,
where a temporary hospital had
been set up. The choppers carried

The U.S. military has deployed
13 helicopters to ferry rescue work-

Northeast enters eighth day of rain


By Wayne Pany
Associated Press Writer
OAKLAND, N.J. (AP) Rain
fell for an eighth straight day
around the waterlogged North-
east on Friday, pushing hundreds
of people from their homes, clos-
ing roadways and leaving train
tracks littered with fallen trees.
Tens of thousands of sandbags
were handed out in New Hamp-
shire and New Jersey, and flood
warnings covered parts of New
Jersey, New York and Connecti-
cut.
Rainfall totals since Oct. 7
topped a foot or more in spots,
and forecasters predicted another
2 to 3 inches of rain in some
places by Saturday. At least 10
people have died because of the
downpours, and four others
remain missing in New Hamp-
shire.
In northeastern New Jersey,
swans floated down the streets of
Oakland as neighbors watched
water lap at their porches.
"It's just lousy," said Ralph Pet-
ricone, who added that he and his
wife are building a home high on
a hill in Pennsylvania. "Learn,
from your mistakes."
Along the beach about 60
miles south in Spring Lake, hun-
dreds of people were ordered to


leave their homes to avoid a
flooding inlet. Another 100 resi-
dents a few miles north were
evacuated overnight as the Shark
River rose.
. The.shore evacuations came
after dozens, of families left
homes around northern New Jer-
sey when knee-deep and higher
floodwaters isolated their neigh-
borhoods.
Rain that had tapered off
overnight and early Friday picked
up in intensity again in many
places by late morning. Rainfall in
Ramsey, near the New York state
line, reached almost 15 inches
overall.
In New York City's Central
Park, another inch of rain fell Fri-
day before noon, after two days of
record-setting precipitation that
totaled 7 inches. Eastern Long
Island residents were also warned
of flash flooding, with rainfall esti-
mated at up to 1.5 inches per
hour.
In Connecticut, ground weak-
ened from rainfall caused trees to
fall across railroad tracks in Nau-
gatuck, disrupting railroad serv-
ice. The railroad provided shuttle
buses to commuters, said Metro-
North spokesman Dan Brucker.
Thousands of homes and busi-
nesses also lost power, including
the University of Bridgeport,


which canceled classes Thursday.
Sandbags were distributed in
northeastern New Jersey, and
Essex County jail inmates were
pressed into duty filling them with.
sand normally used for snow-
storms.
New Hampshire state workers
passed out 46,000 sandbags and
550 well-testing kits in that state's
hard-hit southwestern corner.
Alstead, N.H., a town of 2,000,
saw at least 12 homes washed
away and dozens more heavily
damaged last weekend.
State lawmakers were organiz-
ing a fundraising effort for New
Hampshire flood victims.
The downpours came after a
widespread dry spell, and in far
western Virginia, officials warned
that a reservoir that supplies
water to 5,900 people could.go
dry this weekend, not only
because of near-drought condi-
tions but also because of draw-
down of the Big Cherry Reservoir
for construction of a new dam.
National Guard soldiers
installed 20,000-gallon water-stor-
age units throughout the town.
They're. also helping supply water
to health care centers and schools
and will distribute bottled water if
needed.


mander of the U.S. military's disas-
ter assistance center said Friday.
"My view is that we will be here
as long as Pakistan wants us, to
demonstrate our friendship," U.S.
Navy Rear Adm. Michael Lefever
said.
Dozens of countries have
donated money and aid. New
Zealand doubled its earthquake aid
to $1 million and Japan dispatched
100 troops and two military trans-
port planes carrying a helicopter
and a power-supplying vehicle.
In the Pakistani town of Balakot,
dozens of volunteers burrowed
into a collapsed school and dug
mass graves. They complained that
Pakistani soldiers were not helping.
"We got 25 bodies of children
yesterday and buried them in a
mass grave. We got seven more
today," said volunteer Sayed
Ahmad Hussain, 35.
"We still expect miracles," Hus-
sain said. "But the bodies we
pulled out were in bad shape ...
they are now decomposing."

f WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price'to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:







Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

eV Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITl." Monthly homeowners'association
dues. if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
'- i -.: l...,i .,;,ie ratio should fall in the 28to 33 percent range.
a,. .. ;.. r j. .:, higherr under certain circumstances.

Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

Library hosting
computer classes
The Heartland Library Coop-
erative is a six library cooperative
serving Highlands, Hardee, DeS-
oto and Okeechobee counties.
The Heartland Library Coopera-
tive will be holding basic and
advanced computer classes
throughout the six libraries in the
four-county area. A technology
information trainer will take a
mobile computer lab to each
location four times per month to
teach computer classes. The
classes will teach basic computer
skills such as how to start up and
use a computer, how to log-on to
the Internet and how to commu-
nicate via e-mail with friends and
