Zoning
Continued From Page 1
a.m. to midnight for a Communi-
ty Fall Festival;
Loris Asmussen is asking
the council to consider approv-
ing a reduction in parking for the
area known as White House
Plaza, "Lawrence Office Build-
ing," between Southwest 11th
and 12th Streets. He says the
building is in an historic district,
which meets one of the criteria
for modification of parking
space requirements by city code;
The council will consider a
proposed contract for legal serv-
ices submitted by City Attorney
John Cook. He is asking for an
increase in his monthly contract


rate from $1,725 to $2,100, an
amount he states has not been
increased since 1998. In addi-
tion, he is requesting an increase
in the litigation rate from $75 per
hour to $100 per hour, and an
increase in the one-half day of
work at the city from $125 to
$150. In his request, Mr. Cook
says that the increases are in the
current budget and do not
require a budget amendment;
and,

In other new business, the
council will consider rejecting all
proposals that were submitted
pertaining to building inspection
services. They will consider
approving a re-negotiated con-
tract with Independent Inspec-
tions, Ltd.

Tickets go on sale today for '110 in the Shade'


Tickets go on sale Monday, Oct.
17, for the Okeechobee Communi-
ty Theater's (OCT) fall musical pro-
duction, "110 in the Shade", which
will be presented for four perform-
ances, Nov, 4, 5, 11, and 12, at 8
p.m., each evening in the theater
behind the Golden Corral Restau-
rant on S.W Second Avenue at Sev-
enth Street.
Reserved seating tickets are $10
each, and may be purchased at
Okeechobee Chamber of Com-
merce, on South Parrott Ave.,
between North and South Park
Streets,
"110 in the Shade" is probably
the best musical you've never
heard of," says OCT
Coordinator/Director, Ron Hayes.
"It had the bad luck to premier on
Broadway in New York-during the
same season as "Hello Dolly!" and
"Funny Girl," and those shows got
all of the attention. Even so, critics
praised the show. The New York
Daily News called it "as good a
show as you can see."
"Local musical theater expert
Ian Nairnsey, who formerly hosted
the radio program "Broadway


Beat" on WQCS in Ft. Pierce, rec-
ommended the show to the OCT a
couple of years ago," Hayes says,
"and we realized we'd discovered
a rare gem."
The show tells the story of a
western town caught in the grips of
a severe drought. Smooth-talking
con-man, Bill Starbuck, appears,
and promises to make it rain-for
a price. Lizzie Curry, however, is
able to see through his scheme
immediately. She is an intelligent
single woman with no self-confi-
dence. Through this chance
encounter with Starbuck, she is
able to discover just what it is that
she really considers most impor-
tant in life. Her younger brother is
also profoundly affected by his
contact with the self-p'roclaimed
rainmaker.
The play has been compared to
the Broadway classic "Okla-
homa!", and it is similar in some
ways to the "Music Man", although
it -is no carbon copy either. The
songs range from quietly beautiful
to rousingly spirited, with a raise
the roof gospel feel.
"110 in the Shade" is based on


the play "The Rainmaker", by N.
Richard Nash. It was made into a
non-musical hit movie which
starred Kathryn Hepburn and Burt
Lancaster.
The songs come from the writ-
ing team of Harvey Schmidt and
Tom Jones, who also created "The
Fantastiks." That show ran continu-
ously in New York for more than 42
years, and became the longest run-
ning production in the history of
the American stage.
The leading roles in the show
are being played by two newcom-
ers to OCT productions. Linda Maz-
zola, a mother of twins, will be
seen as Lizzie, a young woman
who has been told for so long that
she is "plain" that she has come to
believe it.
Bill Starbuck, the smooth-talk-
ing con-man, is being portrayed by
Daniel Hamby, who, aside from his
mobile home business, also per-
forms regularly as an impersonator
of various country music entertain-
ers.
Returning to the OCT stage is
Mike Zierdan, in the part of File, the
local sheriff. Zierdan is a veteran of


numerous productions, including
leading singing roles in "Okla-
homa!", "The Pajama Game",
"Guys and Dolls" and "Damn Yan-
kees." Additionally, he has been
seen in non-musicals such as "The
Miracle Worker", "Moon Over Buf-
falo" and last season's "Over the
River and Through the Woods."
Also appearing as Lizzie's well-
meaning father, is Okeechobee
High School social studies teacher,
Tom Murray, back from his per-
formance in last year's "Blame it
on the Movies." Paul Buxton, of
Buxton's Funeral Home, follows
roles in such productions as
"Carousel", and "Dearly Depart-
ed", as Lizzie's older brother, Noah.
Kevin Lute, who starred in last sea-
son's "Over the River and Through
the Woods", will be seen as
younger brother, Jim. Lute is a
teacher at Osceola Middle School.
Rounding out the large cast are:
Jordan Bean, Jordan Canevari,
Raye Deusinger, Brian Garza,
Sonya Hamby, JoAnn.Kane, Aman-
da Lamberti, Aric Majere, Alex
Ming, Joanie Moffatt, Larry Paxton,
Scotty Rae, Tina Welborn, Rahl

OCRA Hurricanes' cheerleaders work hard at cheering on

FWC: Seniors paying for


licenses not
Leaders at the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) say they will not recom-
mend requiring seniors to pay for
fishing and hunting licenses.
"Florida's seniors are among
the FWC's most valued partners.
Many of them support our fish and
wildlife conservation efforts by
donating their time and contribut-
ing money by voluntarily purchas-
.ing licenses," FWC Executive
Director Ken Haddad said. "We
appreciate their efforts and their
continued support. We have no
intention of placing an undue bur-
den on seniors who can't afford to
pay."
In an effort to plan proactively
for fish and wildlife conservation
programs, FWC began developing
a business plan to ensure the finan-
cial stability of its programs for the
next five years. Throughout this
process, the agency has been
exploring all possible solutions and
has worked with Floridians to get


an option
their perspectives on how to deal
with funding shortfalls.
A large portion of FWC's budg-
et comes from user fees, primarily
licenses, permits and specialty
license plate fees. One of the sug-
gestions the FWC received was to
consider repealing the senior
exemption, because federal-
matching dollars are, in part, tied to
the number of paid license holders.
"That federal funding is impor-
tant, but we believe we can come
up with a creative solution that will
enable us to capture those dollars
without having to charge seniors
directly," Haddad said.
Haddad added that the agency
will continue working with resi-
dents to ensure Florida's fish and
wildlife conservation programs
remain financially stable. The FWC
does not plan to submit any
exemption or fee increase propos-
als during the 2006 legislative ses-
sion. I
