Okeechobee News/Katrina Elsken
Destiny Boyer was happy to see Santa Claus at the Christmas Festival in downtown
Okeechobee, sponsored by Okeechobee Main Street. Santa sat in a rocking chair in
front of Morgan's furniture to pose for photos with local children. Everglades Baptist
Church provided free hot chocolate and cupcakes for the children. For those who
missed Santa's visit on Wednesday, the Okeechobee Kiwanis Club will sponsor Santa
in the Park visits this month. Watch the Okeechobee News for dates and times.

The Okeechobee 4-H Bits and Spurs Horse Club's equestrian drill team had a "S'mores"
booth at the Christmas festival sponsored by Okeechobee Main Street on Nov. 30.
Patrons at the booth had their choice of roasting their own marshmallows to perfection
or having one of the 4-H Club members roast the marshmallow and prepare the s'more
- a gooey sandwich made with graham crackers, milk chocolate and a marshmallow.

Bachelor's Degree from
Tampa College in 1995. She
began her teaching career at
'Eckerd Youth Development
Center (EYDC) in 1996 as a

with a no-nonsense approach
to dealing with student disci-
pline.
After leaving EYDC, Ms.
Wright began teaching in the
Okeechobee County School
District. For the past three years
she has served the students of
New Endeavor High School as
a ninth-grade teacher responsi-
ble for lessons in language arts,
reading, science, and business
systems. She teaches students
who have not yet earned the
necessary credits to gain pro-
motion to the high school. Ms.
Wright helps these students
earn credits so they can return
to high school at the end of the
semester or at the end of the
school year.

Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
ATTENTION STORE OWNERS: Recently, I went into a store here in
Okeechobee and, what a mess the store was! I realize that they have
'extra' items for sale with Christmas approaching, but there's no excuse
for clothes in the floor, a pillow in the aisle, hangers everywhere and the
store was not clean. Being that I like to give everyone a second chance, I
went in again same thing still a mess! One worker was spending
more time on her cell phone than working. If they don't clean up the store,
I for one, will not return. Managers and store owners should take note of
things like this.

TREE LIGHTING: Why would we have a ceremony to start the Christ-
mas season on a Church night? Are we forgetting the reason for the sea-
son? I hope Okeechobee does not forget that this is when we celebrate the
birth Of Jesus Christ. Not the fact that you can light up a city park. I think
Christmas lights are beautiful, I put them up myself. I just do not like com-
munity/ taxpayer events being held on Church nights. (Editor's note: The
annual Christmas Tree Lighting ceremony was originally scheduled for
Tuesday, but was postponed one day due to rain.)

THE REASON FOR THE SEASON: I think they are forgetting the reason
for the season. Not many people even take time to remember that Christ-
mas story, it's very sad: One day a baby was born. His name was Christ.
He was born in a manger next to a tree. Then three wise men came by
and left presents for the baby Jesus. The mother was so grateful that she
gave them cookies. Then the wise men left in a sleigh led by twelve rein-,
deer. The first reindeer's nose almost seemed to shine it was said. The
mother placed the presents udder the tree so that when baby Jesus woke
up he would open them.
When the Christ baby awoke he looked at the presents with awe.
"Where are these from?" said the baby as he looked at a very shocked
mother.
"You can talk?!?" Mary exclaimed "I'm God" Jesus said bluntly
"Oh, of course...well..well...They came from...your....your uncle
nick...Old Saint Nick-Santa Clause"
"Thou shalt celebrate my birth every year in this fashion, Thou shalt
have a tree with lights of gold with presents for all the children, and my
uncle Santa Clause shall deliver them." Jesus commanded
"Oh, okay, should I write this down or something?"
And that's how it happened. I think we need to hear this more often
this time of year. I'm tired of the war on Christmas by all these wacko liber-
als. All they want is gay marriage ... And I'm sick of it
If I don't hear "Merry Christmas" every time I walk into a store ... then
Jesus help me, I'm calling Bill O'Reilly.

SINQUIRING MINDS: While traveling on highways outside of town,
we've seen these white plastic things on farms that look like giant
cocoons, kind of. They're plastic sheeting, I think, and maybe they cover
plants underneath. The ones we've seen are maybe 50 feet long, and 8
feet high. What are these things doing? We have inquiring minds in our
house.

IMPACT FEES: In regards to impact fees, as long as we have contrac-
tors on the board of county commissioners who can see and vote what
will line their pockets and what won't, we will not see impact fees here.

TIME LIMITS: Once a developer is issued a permit, isn't there a limit to
the length of time that they can keep a neighborhood disrupted with
heavy equipment moving in and out? Not to mention other inconvenienc-
es. One developer has just carved the road, installed the water lines, and
has several homes in various stages of completion, while another devel-
oper either burned or piled their debris by the road for the county to dis-
pose of and has not even built the road. There are still home sites which
need to be developed. Shouldn't this development have a time limit to
come to closure?

CAN MAN: Can someone tell me where to find Charlie, the man who
pushes the cart collecting tin cans? When I have cans in my car, I can't find
him. When I don't have cans, I see him everywhere. I would like to know
where I can find him so that I can donate my aluminum cans to him.

Kilgore to be in 'Who's Who'


By Rev. Sally Bull
Okeechobee Presbyterian Church
"But now, apart from law, the
righteousness of God has been
disclosed ... since all have sinned
and fall short of the glory of God;
they are now justified (put right
with God) by God's grace as a.
gift, through the redemption that
is in Christ Jesus.... For we hold
that a person is justified by faith
apart from works prescribed by
the law." (Romans 3:21-24 NRSV)

'Are you saved?'
That is a question many of us
have been asked, and.that many
wonder about. It is as if the ques-
tioner thinks we can do some-
thing to assure our own salvation.
But this passage of Paul's letter to
the early church in' Rome sets us
free from thinking we can save
ourselves or save another. Only
God can save us through Jesus
Christ.
This passage sets us free from
trying to make ourselves worthy


and acceptable before God, All we have to do is respond to
something we could never it. All we have to do is accept that

wants us to live lives of honesty,
integrity, and obedience to his

But how'we live doesn't save
us. Jesus Christ saves us! That's
the Gospel! That's the Good
News that sets us free. We are
saved by the grace of God
through faith and' trust in Jesus
Christ.
There are so many portions ol
Scripture that makes this so clear:
for example John 3:16: "For God
so loved the world that.he gave
his only Son, so that everyone
who believes in him shall not per-
ish; but has eternal life." And the
verse immediately following, one
which we don't know as well, but
which is equally important: "For
God did not send the Son into the
world to condemn the world, but
to save the world!"
Can it be any clearer that that?
Be assured and accept with
certainty that God loves you, that
by the grace of God through
Jesus Christ, you are forgiven and
made a child of God. Know the
joy of your salvation!

2005 Bass Classic

presented by:

Hendry County Tourism and Development


Saturday, Dec. 3 Sunday, Dec. 4


Weigh In Time: 3:00 pm daily


Weigh In Location: Okeechobee Fishing Headquarters...
Public invited, covered seating, lunch, drinks provided...

2004-2005 saw Headturners3.com in Okeechobee with more than 20 tournament
events. It has been a great season and with over 60 boats pre-registered for the
inaugural HT3 Outdoors Bass Classic it will prove to be the event of the season in
Okeechobee.

We invite the public to join us at Okeechobee Fishing Headquarters each day
beginning at 3:00 pm for the weigh ins, but you may want to come early and secure
your seat as HT3 weigh ins draw good crowds and are usually standing room only.

The anglers are fishing for $1,000.000 big fish award on Saturday, $1,000.00 big fish
award on Sunday, an all expense paid vacation for 2 to Las Vegas for I CAST 2006 and
much, much more.

The anglers and most businesses have been awesome to our trail this year, with only
1 or 2 exceptions the trail has been received and supported well by this area. Not
knowing yet what 2006 season holds for HT3 and Okeechobee County, we wanted to
take this opportunity to thank all the anglers, volunteers, friends and helpers that
helped produce this record setting year.

With just over 35 boats per tournament HT3 Outdoors paid back (prior to the classic)
$207,345.00 not counting prizes. This would not be possible without the support
of so many:

Garrard's Tackle (gift certificates, ice, drinks and support throughout the season)
Domino's Pizza (great pizza at all our events)
Arby's Restaurant (great sandwiches at some of our events)
Pier II Motel (hotel rooms and discounts for our anglers)
Lorna Jablonski and the Okeechobee News Staff (awesome coverage of our events)
Okeechobee Fishing Headquarters (hosting the boat checks and classic weigh in)
Rhino Liners of Okeechobee ($250.00 tough man challenge in 2 day events)

A special thanks to Hendry County Tourism, Vero US1 Nissan, Mortgages by
Premier, Pro Marine USA, Frogg Toggs rain wear and our platinum and gold
members. These sponsors and members were responsible for the HT3 tournament
trail having the quality of presentation, performance and highest pay backs
available... Thank you to each one of them and we invite each and everyone of you
to join us DEC. 3 & DEC. 4 as we conclude our 2004-2005 season.

Governor awards


regional
TALLAHASSEE Governor
Jeb Bush has awarded a $75,000
Regional Rural Development
Grant to Florida's Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initia-
tive, Inc. to promote economic
development, expansion and
improvement in rural South Cen-
tral Florida. The area includes the
counties of DeSolo, Glades, Hard-
ee, Hendry, Highlands and Okee-
chobee, as well as Immokalee
and the Glades communities of
Pahokee, Belle Glade and South'
Bay. In 2001, Governor Bush des- '
ignated this rural south central
region of Florida as one of three
"Rural Areas of Critical Economic
Concern.",
"Promoting economic devel-
opment in Florida's heartland is
priority," said Governor Bush.
"Extending economic growth and
prosperity to our rural communi-
ties strengthens our state econo-
my."
Florida's Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative is
an economic development organ-
ization serving the south central
region of Florida including DeSo-
to. Glades, Hardee, Hendry, High-
lands and Okeechobee counties,
as well as Immokalee and the
Glades communities of Pahokee,
Belle Glade, South Bay. The
organization works within the
region to promote economic ini-
tiatives. Most recently, the organi-
zation facilitated the regional pri-
oritization of transportation
requirements to better qualify for
higher levels of transportation
funding.
K.S."Butch" Jones, Chairman
of Glades County Board of County
Commission and Chairman of the
Board for Florida's Heartland

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.

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,
