County seeks end to trash woes


Commissioner says
Viking trash is
'out of control'
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County
Board of County Commission-
ers once again dealt with the
recurring problem of trash
accumulation in Viking at their
Thursday meeting.
Susan Smith addressed the


board as a Viking property
owner and as a member of the
board of supervisors of the
Coquina Water Control District
concerning the trash situation in
Viking.
Speaking on behalf of her-
self, she passed out photo-
graphs of trash on East Line
Road and Peavine Trail. She list-
ed four reasons why garbage is
such a problem.
The first reason she listed
was the weekend visitors who
leave trash on Monday. She said


"What we are doing is
certainly not working,"
Commissioner Ray
Domer
that by garbage collection day
on Friday, the trash is strewn
along the roadside.
She went on to say that the
rules are different in Viking. She
said that on 700A and U.S. 98
there is trash in all kinds of con-
tainers such as cardboard boxes.
and feedbags. It is all picked up


by Waste Management, she
said. However, she said, on East
Line the feedbags and card-
board boxes are not picked up.
She also asserted that Waste
Management would not pick up
overturned trash cans or trash
bags with holes on East Line
Road.
The third problem is that
some people do not have a
truck to haul a week's worth of
garbage to East Line or Peavine
Trail.
The fourth problem she list-


ed was that other types of trash
other than household trash -
things such as lawnmowers -
that are left on the side of the
road.
As a board member of
Coquina, she presented com-
missioners with a letter from the
Coquina board that offered the
county commissioners use of
two plots of land on East Line
Road and Peavine Trail for
dumpster sites. They proposed

Wayne Fortenberry, a navy veteran of World War II, wore
a colorful vest festooned with American flags to the Vet-
erans Day program in Flagler Park.


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The ilth day of the lIth
month was a special Veterans Day
in Okeechobee.
In addition to the usual
speeches and salutes, the day was
marked by the unveiling of
memorial stones replacing those
lost in last years' hurricanes as
well as the dedication of a stone
to commemorate the first Okee-
chobee native killed in action in
Iraq.
As has become their tradition,
the gospel quartet New Ground
entertained the crowd before the
ceremony and sang "The Nation-
al Anthem" and "God Bless Amer-
ica" during the program.
, The speaker was local attorney
and U.S. Marine and Vietnam War
veteran Jerry Bryant, who urged
the assembled crowd to stop to
remember those who paid the
price for our freedom.
"We should never forget all
who served even during times of
'apparent peace,'" he said.
He mentioned the fact that one
stone bore the names of Vietnam
War fatalities. He said several of
the men named on the stone
were friends of his. He said he had
fond memories of going to school
with them. Mr. Bryant mentioned
Jim Goolsby whose funeral he
attended in 1969. He said that was
when the reality of war was
brought home to him. The funeral
was six weeks before Mr. Bryant
went to Parris Island to begin his
basic training in the U.S. Marine
Corps.
Mr. Bryant now practices law

Everglades honors veterans


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Following the tradition of
Okeechobee schools of cele-
brating Veterans' Day, the stu-
dents at Everglades Elemen-
tary School honored veterans
in a special ceremony Friday
morning at the school with
music, square dancing and a
speech by Okeechobee Mayor
Jim Kirk.
The student council was
responsible for the posting of
the colors and leading the
assembled students, parents
and guests in the Pledge of
Allegiance.
That was followed by two
teachers, Pam Gaucin and
Kathleen Wilson, singing the


National Anthem.
In her opening remarks,
Everglades Principal Joni Ard
paid tribute to American mili-
tary veterans.
"Thank you to all American
veterans," she said.
In describing our veterans,
Mrs. Ard quoted from a Veter-
an's Day writing project of
fourth grade student Gavin
Wilinski: "Heroes don't have to
have superpowers to be
heroes, just bravery, courage,
and love for other people."
"We live in a country most
of the world is envious of,"
Mayor Kirk told the students.
"We have a lot of freedoms
that are taken for granted."
He mentioned the freedom
to receive an education and to


seek out a career, as well as
freedom of religion. He also
said we have the right to dis-
agree and speak out.
The mayor told the students
that Americans have a right
and a responsibility to defend
the weak. He urged the stu-
dents to remember not only
those who paid the ultimate
price but those who returned.
"The real heroes are our
veterans," he asserted.
He added that we have
rights and privileges because
of all those who fought for
those rights and privileges.
To conclude the program,
fifth grade students performed
a square dance to the tune of
"God Bless the USA".


UeecnoDee News/reie uawaa
City of Okeechobee Mayor Jim Kirk was the featured speaker
at a Veterans Day program held at Everglades Elementary
School. As the mayor spoke, Jesse Bodden, vice president of
the student council, held the American flag.

He said his fellow soldiers
called him "water buffalo"

him the best fighting soldier in

He went on to say that shortly
after OCSO units were dispatched
to EYDC, the sheriff's office
received a call that a black male
matching the description of Sim-
mons was seen near the bridge on
U.S. 441 N., near the Department of
Forestry office. Units responded to
the area but found no one.
Sgt. Markham then said his
department received a call shortly
after 11 p.m. that two subjects were
trying to steal a car in the 3500
block of N.W Sixth Ave. The car's
owner confronted the suspects,
who tried to flee the area in the car

sion.
Paul Buxton, of Buxton Funer-

ed the crowd that freedom is not
free. He said his own father
served in Germany and Africa but
was reluctant to speak of those
experiences
Restoration of memorial
stones in the park that were dam-
aged by last years' hurricanes was

Buxton gave most of the credit to
his son, Matthew Buxton, who he
said was given the project and ran
with it.
"Please accept this as our gift

stones.
To the veterans he said, "It will

Osceola Middle School students honor veterans


The Osceola Middle School
(OMS) student body enjoyed a
moving Veteran's Day Ceremony
a bit early, thanks to the availabili-
ty of a special guest. The Osceola
Middle School FFA Officers
opened with their Opening-Cere-
mony, then the Okeechobee High
School NJROTC conducted the
Posting of the Colors. Led by
director Mr. Lampi, the Osceola
Middle School Band performed
the Star-Spangled Banner. The
Okeechobee High School
NJROTC followed with a Drill
demonstration. Then, Mr. Paul
Buxton introduced Speaker Larry
Cappetto, producer of a Video
Presentation called, Lest We For-
get, honoring WWII veterans.
The video made an impact on the
young audience, as students were
talking about it even the next day.
Finally, the Osceola Middle
School FFA Officers performed
their Closing Ceremony, and the
students were dismissed. On
Thursday, students suggested we
honor the veterans again by wear-
ing red, white, and blue on Friday,
so that's exactly what OMS did.
We were very proud of our stu-
dents, as their behavior and atten-
tion at the ceremony impressed
Mr. Cappetto enough that he
made a comment on it afterward.
The Second OMS Family
Movie Night, sponsored by the
21st Century Safe & SMART Pro-
gram, was a huge success. Mrs.
Finney, director of the program,
and her staff of after-school pro-
gram teachers put together a
night promoting family time,
complete with popcorn, sodas,
and a big-screen showing of Kick-
ing and Screaming, starring Will
Ferrell. Students were awarded
Spears for each family member in
attendance, and Mrs. Finney esti-
mates the crowd at about 100.
We all had a great time, and we'll
be hosting these events monthly
throughout the school year. Next
month, Herbie Fully Loaded. Be
there, Dec. 10, 7 p.m.
Congratulations go out to the
OMS PE department's Milers of
the Week. From the 8th grade:
Martin Godinez and Paige Arnold;
7th Grade: Adrian Tagle and
Alexus Peaden; 6th Grade: Quan-
drell Ridley and Jessyca Williams.
After a weeklong postpone-
ment due to Hurricane Wilma,
the OMS Basketball tryouts finally
took place, and we are proud to
announce the 2005-2006 teams.

Physical education and student
fitness are important components
of the New Endeavor High School
(NEHS) curriculum. At NEHS the
students in physical education
classes spend time with traditional
activities that include the funda-
mentals of team sports, individual
sports, calisthenics, and weight
training. Students also have access
to a weight room where they
encourage one another to perform
extra repetitions on the bench press
or to pedal a little farther on an exer-
cise bike. On occasion, school offi-
cials will lend a spot or demonstrate
proper lifting techniques.
Since the amount of physical
activity that a child engages in today
is much less than it was thirty years
ago, the importance of exercise
and proper diet are explained and
encouraged. Today's youth eat
more and exercise less leading to
diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.
The NEHS faculty focus their efforts
on stressing a healthy lifestyle.
Last year, Andy Brewer, the
Principal of New Endeavor High
School received donated exercise
equipment from community
members and staff members to
create a weight room that students


in the 7th through 12th grades have
access to three times a week. Gay
Carlton, Okeechobee County
School Board Member and former
physical education teacher, donat-
ed some of the equipment. Phyllis
Bass, Ms. Carlton's niece also
donated equipment. Most recently,
retired educators Jim and Zella Kirk
donated a piece of equipment. Our
gym now houses a treadmill, a
rowing machine, an elliptical train-
er, two exercise bicycles, a bench
press with a collection of free
weights, two nautilus machines,
an ab lounge, and a Nordic Track.
Ms. Carlton and Mr. Brewer are
very proud of the efforts to secure
the equipment in the weight room,
and the individuals that donate
equipment to the school can enjoy
some tax relief because of the char-
itable donation.
If you have a treadmill, an exer-
cise bike, free weights, or any other
exercise equipment that is not being
used, feel free to donate it to a wor-
thy cause. If you would like to volun-
teer your expertise with this physical
fitness program or any programs
currently offered at New Endeavor
High School, please contact Andy
Brewer, principal, at (863)462-5125.

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

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
WHATS THE DIFFERENCE?: The Chamber has been allowed for years
to do what Main Street wants to do and now there is an issue. Why should
one organization be allowed and another be denied? Once again, I say that
all the venders at the festival are not "non-profit". So someone tell me the dif-
ference. And I can tell you for sure that all the products to be sold there are not
handmade either. And I would like someone to tell me who uses the parks
downtown? I can only count about 10 times year that the parks are used by
the public. So we the taxpayers pay for the upkeep of the park and they are
not used. There isn't even a playground there for the kids. I have lived here for
years and I don't think I have been in the park 10 times over those years. I plan
to attend the Farmers Market and support the venders there. It's a good thing
for Okeechobee. I'm sure that there are other places that Main Street could
hold the market but why should they, Flagler Park is a great place.
NO BUSINESSES: The Chamber has never been allowed to let com-
mercial businesses use the park. I know because I have a local business
and when I wanted to have a booth in the park, I was told that only non-
profits and craftsmen were allowed to have booths. Arts and crafts that
vou make yourself are OK. I am not opposed to the Green Market, but the
conditions of Col. Hamrick's Trust say that if there is any question, they
should ask the Trustees. Well they didn't bother to ask and now there is a
problem. If you let commercial vegetable and food vendors set up in the
park, what is next? A car tent sale? A flea market? Once they open it up to
commercial businesses, how can they say no to anyone else? If Main
Street wants to promote use of the park why don' t they plan more arts
shows, free concerts and things like that? It seems to me that Main Street
wants to use the Green Market as a fundraiser for themselves. I wonder
just how much they are charging per booth? That would be a good ques-
tion. How much money do they plan to make on this deal? And what do
they plan to spend it on? I bet they aren't planning to donate it to charity.
(Editor's Note: Main Street has stated they were charging vendors $15
per booth with no electricity, and $20 per boot with electricity.)
FREE ADVERTISING: I think the Main Street folks must be laughing
themselves silly over all the free publicity the controversy over the Green
Market is giving them. It has been discussed in the paper for weeks. Every-
one in Okeechobee now knows about their market. A little controversy gets
the word out much better than any other kind of advertising. I wonder how
many people will go to the park just to see what the hoopla is all about.
PERMITS: I think that it is terrible after the hurricane that you have to
take out a permit and have plans drawn up and pay $1,200 for them. You
have to have sealed plans by an architect and then pay for a newA frame
on your own home and it is only minor work to be done. They are charg-
ing for everything when the repair work is done by the homeowner. I
think that it is a disgrace. It's money, money, money when people need
the money to make necessary repairs to their own home.
ELECTRICITY: To the person who said that they didn't see any FP&L
trucks, only PIKE trucks from North Carolina. PIKE just bought out a
company that are contractors with FPL So, once again, thanks PIKE
Power and FP&L for contracting the work out we have power.
PROGRESS: I just read in another paper that Al Qaida is using cell
phones to detonate their bombs and they are using computers to contact
each other with their plans for what they are going to do to us. I was just
thinking, isn't progress great?
WATER FOUNTAIN: I was wondering what happened to the big
water fountain in front of the old courthouse. Why was it taken out? It
was a very pretty thing. (Editor's Note: It was removed because it is dam-
aged, and the county has it stored.)

Guest Commentary



Sheriff gives a heartfelt thanks


By Sheriff Paul C. May
Sometimes it seems that it
takes the worst things to happen
to bring out the best in people in
our community. Hurricane
Wilma visited us two weeks ago
and one of the things that I saw
happen, makes me very proud of
what a few of our citizens did dur-
ing the five days at the Okee-
chobee Agri-Civic Center.
The following people, some
who worked daily for 14 to 15
hours, prepared and served over


S2,000 meals during the five-day
period to emergency workers.
The emergency workers were
paid for their work, these people
were not. Many left their busi-
nesses and their families so they
could help.
When these people were not
cooking or cleaning up, many
came out and helped with distri-
bution of food, water and ice to
those in need. These are almost
the exact people who did this
same thing last year during our
two hurricanes.

mie Howell, Frank and Paula
Byers, Amanda Baker, Jimbo

one out; if so, I apologize but
these people mentioned were


there almost every day.
I saw this last year and again

friends. We are a strong commu-
nity because of one thing; we live
and work every day with some of
the finest people in the world
right here in Okeechobee County.
As your sheriff, I sometimes
have to announce bad things that
are happening in our county -

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Dr. John Keith
Senior pastor,
Oakview Baptist Church
We live in a day and time
when people face almost insur-
mountable problems. There are
any number of self-help books on
the subject of solving the prob-
lems of life. For a few moments, I
would like to share the key to*
solving some of life's problems.
In John 2:5 Mary, the mother of
Jesus, makes this statement:
"Whatever He says unto you, do
it." That is they key to a successful
life whatever Jesus tells you to
do, do it.
It is important to get the back-
ground of this verse. Jesus and
His disciples had been invited to a
wedding. While there, a crisis
came up the wine ran out.
Mary, the mother of Jesus, came
to Him and related to Him the
problems. Then she said to the
servants, "whatever He tells you
to, do it." Let me share with you
three thoughts on this.
Number one, we have to listen
to the Lord's instructions. When


Mary told the servants to do
whatever Jesus told them to do,
they had to listen to what He-said.
If we want to have a successful
life, we must listen to what the
Lord tells us to do. Too many of
us are not listening to the Lord.
We are listening to the radio, to
the television, to our peers, but
we are not listening to the Lord.
We need to cultivate the habit of
listening to the Lord that means
we have to be still and be quiet
more.
Number two, we must live
according to His instructions. It is
not enough just to listen. We
must do what He tells us. I fear
that most of us already know
more of what God wants to do
than we are willing to put into
practice. We have the Word of
God that shares with us \\ hat God
wants us to do. It is like Mark
Twain said. One man approached
,him once and said something
about the difficult passages in the
Bible that he had trouble with.
Mark Twain remarked," it's the
passages that I understand that I


don't live by that bother me."
Number three, we must leave
the results to the Lord. We must
listen to the Lord's instructions.
Live according to them, and leave
the results up to Him. The ser-
vants heard the Lord tell them to
get the six water pots and fill them
,up with water. They obeyed and
the water was 'turned into wine.
Their job was to listen and live
according to His words not try to
figure out how it was going to
work. They obeyed leaving the
results up to Jesus and He took
care of the problem.
This was the first miracle
recorded in John's Gospel. John
2:11 tells us that this was the first
miracle. Jesus did so that His dis-
ciples would believe on Him,
Every miracle in the Scripture
began with a problem that man
could not solve. What kind of
problems are you having in your
life? Are you listening to what the
Lord is saying to you? Are you liv-
ing according to what He has
instructed you? Are you leaving
the results up to Him?

The

Fishin' Line

By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Last weekend turned out to
be a great weekend for fishing.
Anglers in two separate tourna-
ments brought in a great deal of
good-looking bass. Congratula-
tions to Justin Schwier and his
partner Juan Ruiz for their first
place finish in last Saturday's
Christian Team Trail. They
brought 32.31 lbs. to the scale to
capture the win. Justin then
proved it wasn't an accidental
win, when he placed a 32.04 lb.
bag on the scale of the Head-
turners3.com tourney on Sunday
to clinch first place in that tour-
ney.
Congratulations also go to the
other winners of the Christian
Team Trail: Mfac Russell and
Beau Rogers for their second
place finish (28.33 lbs.); Bill
Rose and Craig Smith for their
third place finish (23.86 lbs.) and
Richard and Ricky Postell for
their fourth place finish (19.27
lbs.). Cudos go to the winners of
the Headturners3.com tourna-
ment. Lee McCracken took sec-
ond place with 24.08 lbs.; Mark
"Rat Boy" Hester finished third
with 23.40 lbs.; Doug Harris
placed fourth with 21.94 lbs. and
Dave Tripp took fifth place with
21.94 lbs. of Okeechobee large
mouths.
High, murky water conditions
don't seem to be slowing down
the fish. There were 350.13 lbs.
of fish caught during the Christ-
ian Team Trail tourney and
433.19 lbs. caught during the
Headturners3.com tournament.
These fish were caught on a
variety of lures and at many dif-


ferent locations. Carolina rigs,
Texas rigs, rattle traps, Trick
Worms by Zoom, and crankbait
were given the most credit for
hooking the fish. Anglers stated
that they caught their fish at
many different locations on the
lake including the Indian Prairie
Canal, Moonshine Bay, Nubbins
Slough, Taylor Creek, Tin House
Cove, and at the mouth of the
river.
The Okee-Tantie Team Trail
Classic will take place at Okee-
Tantie Marina on Nov. 19 and 20.
They are scheduled to weigh in
at 3 p.m. on both days. Their pre-
Classic banquet will take place
on Friday, Nov. 18 at the Ameri-
can Legion Post 64 hall, 501 S.E.
2nd Street. Doors will open at
7:30 p.m.
The weather outlook for this
weekend sounds perfect for fish-
ing. So, if you're in the rno'.jd, get
out on the lake and enjoy the
beautiful weather. Just remem-
ber to stay safe.

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.
e 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 "PITI." Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. /
