WASHINGTON (AP) -
Defense Secretary Donald H.
Rumsfeld said Tuesday he is
not thinking of quitting despite
several retired generals' calls
for him to do so. He discounted
any suggestion of widespread
dissent within the military's
officer corps.
At a Pentagon news confer-
ence, Rumsfeld sought to por-

manders and other retired gen-
erals as an inevitable conse-
quence of his hard push for
fundamental changes in the


military establishment to fight
the war on terrorism.
"When you make a deci-
sion, you make a choice, some-
body is not going to like it," he
said. '.'It's perfectly possible to
come into this department and
preside and not make choices,
in which case people are not
unhappy, until about five years
later when they find you
haven't done anything and the
country isn't prepared."
He cited several examples of
tough~ choices. he has made
that have angered some inside
the Pentagon. He mentioned a

combat units that has been

state that Johnson did not have a
prescription for the pills.

CES kids head into last nine weeks with speeches and theatre


First grade
First graders at Central had a
wonderful field trip to the Dolly
Hand Theatre in Belle Glade to
see a musical interpretation of
the Dr. Seuss story, "Are You My
Mother". Everyone had a super
time.
Thanks to Mrs. Snow and the
Spanish Club from the High
School for providing an egg hunt
for the Bilingual Students in the
B.A.S.E. program. A big "hug" for
the first grade students! Our Stu-
dents of the Week are: Alysa
Osterman, Andrew Dobbs, Eric
Gaucin, Mackenzie Mackin, Bren-
nan Cone, Miranda McClanahan,
Adoniel Martinez, Chance White,
Hunter Sills, and Chandler Smet.
Our Birthday students are Vanes-
sa Guerrero, Mariela Espinoza-
Garcia, Shermaine Hicks, Ken-
nethia McBride, Jennifer Ehrlich,
and Katelan Bozeman.
Second grade
Congratulations to Lovie
Jacobs and Jordan DeRoin our
latest Students of the Week.
They've been doing a super job!
Almost every student has earned
over 100 steps and some have
earned over 200. WOW! Keep
reading!
In Mrs. John's and Mrs.
Rodriguez's class, we just fin-
ished our study of space. We
learned about each planet by
researching on the internet and
reading books. The students
loved all of the cool things that
N.A.S.A. sent us. One of our
favorite activities was when we
were geologist taking core sam-
ples to discover how the Earth is
layered. To wrap up the unit, all
the students applied their gained
knowledge of the Solar System to
write an imaginary trip to the


planet of their choice. In Spanish,
students learned how the use of
cognates help them understand
concepts by relating Spanish
words to their own native lan-
guage, thus facilitating better
comprehension of the second
language.
Fourth grade
A big congrats to those stu-
dents who participated in the
Tropicana Speech Contest. The
classroom winners will compete.
in the school competition on
Wednesday, April 19. Good luck
to those who progress on to the
County Contest in May.
Parents, we are anxiously
awaiting the arrival of our FCAT
writing results. Watch for a parent
newsletter coming home shortly
that gives you the password and
instructions to find. your child's
results on the internet. The infor-
mation will come home once we
get closer to the release date of
the scores.
Students are continuing their
study of Florida history in social
studies and learning about some
famous master's of art as well.
Students who work hard and
continually show excellent citi-
zenship behaviors will be able to
participate in our first 'Freaky Fun
Fourth Grade Day' on April 21.
Ask your child about the plans.


Don't forget your child is to be
a master of his multiplication
facts how is your child doing?
The fourth graders will also be
traveling to the Dolly Hand The-
ater just past Pahokee on April 24.
Students are asked to bring a dis-
posable lunch and dress in their
best clothes we are going to
the theater!!
Mr. Goff's class just finished
working on their Tropicana
Speeches. Each student wrote a
two to three minute speech and
presented it in front of the class.
We enjoyed working on our
speeches and were thrilled to
hear the speeches our classmates
wrote and presented. In reading
we just finished reading the novel
The Chocolate Touch by Patrick
Catling. It is a story about a boy
named John who loves chocolate
very much. He finds a coin one
day while walking home from
school and spends it on choco-
late in a "special" store. After eat-
ing the chocolate everything his
mouth touches turns into choco-
late, including his mother when
he gives her a kiss on the cheek.
We enjoyed this funny story! We
will be starting the novel 'Holes'
by Louis Sachar soon. In science
we are learning about energy. We
are going to learn about the dif-
ferent types of energy and how to
measure them. In math, we are
studying fractions. We are learn-
ing how to add them, subtract
them, reduce them and turn
them into mixed numbers. We
are also learning how to make
equivalent fractions. Our recent
Students of the Week have been
David Cardona and Dezirae Fon-
seca.
Mr. Johnson's class has been
busy working on their Tropicana
Speeches in class. They are look-
ing forward to going to Dolly


Hand Theatre on April 24. In
Math class we have been review-
ing fractions and negative num-
bers. Recent Students of the
Week have been Andy Close and
Maria Jaimes.
In Mrs. Pritchard's classroom
students have learned about the
three branches of government
and our constitution. We also
researched the Bill of Rights and
. wrote some 'rights' of our own. In
Science, Rocks and Minerals have
become very interesting and frac-
tions have taken our time in math.
We now have nine of the 20 stu-
dents who have mastered their
multiplication facts. Keep work-
ing kids! And congrats to Nicholas
Kielbasa, Mitchell McCoin, and
Chelsea Wliarin in obtaining the
first, second and third place rib-
bons respectfully for their public
speaking abilities. The three of
them will compete with the other
fourth graders next week in the
school speech contest. Good luck
- we are sure each one of them
will wow the judges. And, happy
belated birthday to Mitchell and
thanks for the goodies!
Mr. Schlabach's students have
been working very hard this
marking period.
Congratulations to Steven
Kasik for getting the "Proud Pan-
ther Award" for the last marking
period. He worked very hard and
proved to be an excellent stu-
dent. Also, congratulations to
Guadalupe Jimenez, Steven
Kasik, Abril Maldonado, Dianisha
Nazario, Jacob Witt, and
Johnathan Sebrell for making it
to the fifth grade "Fun Day". They
needed C's or better and good
behavior for the third marking
period in order to make it. I know
that they'll keep up the good
work.

IT'S A CRIME: I think it's a crime when people who don't go
through due process to become citizens of this country, can ride and
show their flag of their country and try to make our lawmakers change
their minds.

GANGS: In response to article I was reading in' the Okeechobee
News, why did our sheriff make comments that are so racist? Such as,
being in a gang is away of life in Mexico. That makes not a bit of sense
whatsoever, not a bit. Gangs are gangs. When you think of Mexico it's
more like the wild west, not urban city life. I don't know where he gets
that from.

Letter to the Editor


Cable industry
ignoring consumers
Rural Americans have an
opportunity to acquire the same
level of communications as their
urban neighbors, and we, at the
American Corn Growers Associa-
tion (ACGA) strongly encourage
action to ensure this opportunity
is realized.
Without action now from the
rural community, we fear this
opportunity will be lost and we
will continue to fall behind both
our urban neighbors at home and
our global neighbors who already
have access to the latest commu-
nications services.
ACGA has asked Congress to
allow video provider companies,
to enter rural markets unencum-
bered by the outdated rules and
regulations that exist in so many
places across our country. By
updating these laws we could
reap the benefits competition
offers, and open our communities
to a highly competitive cable tele-
vision market. Or, as some might
say, we could opt to shoot our-


selves in the foot by allowing the
status quo to stand or, even
worse, by adopting more arcane
rules and regulations.
ACGA is America's leading
progressive commodity associa-
tion, representing the interests of
corn producers in 35 states. Since
its inception in 1987, the ACGA
has worked tirelessly to enhance
farm income and protect rural
communities. We recognize that
farmers here and abroad need to
have the opportunity to be'
rewarded for their time, invest-
ment and commitment to feeding
the world. The ACGA is a leading
member of the Alliance for Rural
Television (ART) as well as a
member of Consumers for Cable
Choice, a not-for-profit alliance of
consumer organizations with
members throughout the United
States who are committed to the
development of a competitive,'
vibrant cable communications
market.
American farmers have had to
adapt to a changing, more com-
petitive market place, as have
most other industries. For most

American businesses, offering
consumers what they want is the
key to economic success. Cable
companies should be no excep-
tion to this basic rule but, incom-
prehensively, our current regula-
tory system has allowed the cable
industry to flourish while ignoring
consumers' wants and needs.
At ACGA, we think there is a
better way to conduct business in
these United States. In order to
keep up with technology, we
need to adapt our rules and regu-
lations to create a level market-
place where all business entities
may compete fairly to earn con-
sumer confidence. Local regula-
tions that obstruct competition
must be changed.
ACGA believes efforts to over-
come impediments in the cable
franchise marketplace have great
benefits on several levels. Apart
from the obvious enhancements
to entertainment, there is also the
distinct possibility that broadband
investment will be driven to
places that currently do not have
service. This could prove quite
beneficial to our members, who


could increase their competitive
edge through much needed
advanced communication servic-
es.
We further suggest that, in
places where local franchising
has not established outmoded
regulatory procedures, it is better
that these onerous regulations do
not exist. This gives rural areas the
chance to have investment where
it is needed.
ACGA urges local govern-
ments to expedite the creation of
a competitive field in cable fran-
chising by adopting newer more
advanced regulations that will
benefit the American consumer
and maintain necessary local sup-
port. Rural Americans deserve
and need access to high-speed
communications services.
Our economic future depends
on rural Americans taking the
time to remind their local, state
and federal elected officials that
we support competition in the
cable industry.

tune that she doesn't even know

snooty sorority sisters (Tina
Bruner).
With the new highway
coming' through, the little town is
gonna be blown off the map!

April is 'Water Conservation Month'


Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Sunshine State Scholar
Michael Minnick, left, a senior at Okeechobee High
School, was congratulated by Okeechobee County
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patricia Cooper, right, for
being a District Sunshine State Scholar and National
Merit Scholarship Finalist. The recognition took place at
the April 13 school board meeting.


Following the lead of the Gover-
nor and Cabinet of the State of
Florida, the South Florida Water
Management District Governing
Board passed a resolution declar-
ing April as "Water Conservation
Month." Approval of the resolution
joins the actions of other counties,
municipalities, agencies and
organizations throughout the state
in emphasizing the importance of
water conservation. At the urging
of SFWMD local service center
staff, more than 65 governments
within the District's 16-county
region adopted similar resolutions.
April is typically considered the
last month of Florida's dry season
- when water needs are most
acute. With temperatures rising
and humidity remaining low, it's a
good time to be thinking of water
conservation measures.
"Saving water is the smart thing
to do not just in April, but every
month of the year," said SFWMD
Governing Board Vice-Chair Irela
Bague. Repairing leaky plumbing
fixtures, taking shorter showers


and installing low-flow shower-
heads are easy cures for water-
waste woes in the home. "Fixing a
leaking faucet, dripping at the rate
of one drop per second, can save
up to 2,700 gallons of water per
year," said Bague.
Outside the home, water con-
servation is even more important.
As much as 70% of residential
water use is for landscape irriga-
tion. While emerald green grass
and lush ornamental plants are
homeowners' dreams, this land-
scaping is not particularly Florida
friendly, especially at this time of
the year. A common sense way to
quality landscape that conserves
water and protects the environ-
ment is through the use of
Xeriscape landscaping techniques.
As other water management
districts, local governments and
community organizations pitch in
to raise water conservation
awareness, a critically needed
water conservation ethic can be
developed. A number of counties
are already under landscape

Search is on for America's oldest worker


Auburndale Experience
Works, the nation's largest training
and employment organization for
mature workers, has launched its
annual search for America's Oldest
Worker and for Outstanding Older
Workers in every state, the District
of Columbia, and Puerto Rico. The
recognition program is part of
Experience Works' national effort
to raise awareness of the contribu-
tions made by older individuals and
to break down barriers associated
with the hiring of older workers. All
of the outstanding older workers
will attend Experience Works
Prime Time Awards week in Wash-
ington, D.C., in September where
America's Oldest Worker will be
announced.
"By highlighting the successes
of outstanding seniors from across
the country, the Prime Time
Awards are meant to inspire
employers and all Americans to


help open the doors of opportunity
for thousands of older Americans
who want, and need to work," said
Martin Rome, vice president of
communications for Experience
Works.
To be considered, applicants
must work a minimum of 20 hours
a week in paid employment, and
be willing to travel to Washington,
D.C., in September to participate in
the Prime Time Awards events.
Applicants or the person nominat-
ing them must complete an appli-
cation and submit it prior to the
deadline of May 31. Outstanding
older workers from each state are
chosen by a selection committee.
The older worker with the earliest
birth date who meets all the criteria
will be honored as America's Old-
est Worker. To nominate someone
online or to access a printed nomi-
nation form, go to www.experi-
enceworks.org.
