State funds OK'd for projects


$250 million
housing grant
available soon

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee Board of
County Commissioners got some
good news at their meeting
when Representative Richard
Machek (D-78th' District) told
them about some state funds


that have been approved for the
county.
The commission also learned
that the long-discussed Okee-
chobee County Fair could have
its initial run next year.
.Rep. Machek was in town for
a plant dedication and dropped
in on the May 11 commission
meeting.
"I think'Okeechobee County
did pretty well on the dollar side
of the budget," he asserted.
He said -that $200;000 had
been appropriated for renovating


of the courthouse while $6.2 mil-
lion had been earmarked for
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) projects.
Perhaps the best-received
news that he announced was
that $500,000 had been appropri-
ated for the much-needed expan-
sion of Okeechobee Utility,
Authority's wastewater treat-
ment plant, while $25 million
had been set aside for the
restoration of Lake Okeechobee.
Mr. Machek also told the com-
missioners that $250 million in

Vanishing muck lowers land elevation


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
BELLE GLADE The effects
of subsidence are clear
At the Everglades Research
and Education Center in Belle
Glade. a graduated pole juts out
of the dirt to teach nine feet into
the air. Roman numerals mark
the depth of the pole at every
foot. The remarkable thing
about the pole isn't the weath-
ered condition of it, or even that
it has stood at the site for many
decades, but that at one point in
.time, the top of it was level with
the ground.
Fifty years ago, some of the
top soil scientists in the area
famously predicted the demise
of farming as we know it in our
area. Pointing to the rapid
decline of the condition of the
soils in the Everglades Agricul-
ture Area, they said farming
would not be able to sustain
itself past the year 2000.


i ne agricuure injr us'it ti\ LIdi
year posted sales up Lwards of $1
billion.
Farming in the area has been
able to adapt to rapidly worsen-
ing conditions, partly by grow-
ing sugarcane and implement-
ing new techniques to stanch
the effects of subsidence.
But scientists say agricultural
companies can only stop time
for so long.
Subsidence occurs when
organisms feeding on the
organic material convert that
material into water and carbon
dioxide. Slowly, the dirt made


*


up mostly of organic material
fades away. The danger now
rests on how much the soil will
continue to disappear in our
area. With a hard limestone
rock foundation just inches
beneath the soil in the EAA,
farming in shallow land contin-
ues to be a quarrelsome issue.
Dr. George Snyder, a retired
scientist who.worked at the Uni-
',er'sit of Florida research sta-
tion for much of his career
beginning in 1967, understands
the problem well. He has seen
first-hand how new techniques
have been able to slow down
the rate of subsidence from an
inch a year decades ago to half
an inch today. The land contin-
ues to slowly wither away, but
much slower than originally
predicted. Improved water con-
trol measures are among the
primary reasons why the subsi-

grants for affordable housing
would soon be available, and he
would make the information
available to them at the appropri-
ate time.
A good bit of the afternoon
session was devoted to dis-
cussing leasing the agri-civic cen-
ter to the fair association to con-
duct a county fair.
Linda Syfrett, president of the
fair association, expressed a
desire for a 10-year commitment.
She said that some vendors need
a three-year commitment.


The consensus of commis-
sioners was for an initial five-year
lease that could be revisited after
two years.
Terry 'Burroughs predicted
that the fair would turn a profit in
one year.
In response to Commissioner
Ray Domer's. request about
expenses the first year, Mr. Bur-
roughs replied that they. had
requested $10,000 from the

Discussion of four ordi-
nances, a speeding problem on
,S.W. Third Avenue, and a street
closing will occupy the Okee-
chobee City Council at their
meeting Tuesday evening, May
16.
The first ordinance to be
considered concerns a rezon-
ing request by Malissa Morgan
to rezone property on S.WW.Sev-
enth Avenue from residential
single family-one iRSF-1I) zon-
ing to residential multiple fami-
ly (RMF) zoning in order to
facilitate construction of a day-
care center.


The other ordinances to be
considered deal with amending
the retirement systems for the
City of Okeechobee, the Okee-
chobee Utility Authority, police
officers and firefighters in
accordance with current Inter-
nal Revenue System regula-
tions.
The council will also hear
'from Wesley Bohn concerning
speeding. on S.W. Third
Avenue. In a written statement,
-bhe claims that about 75 percent
of vehicles in the area are
exceeding the speed limit.

Florida earns A plus for sex offender registry


Parents for Megan's Law, a
national child advocacy and
Megan's Law watchdog agency,
recently gave the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement's Sex
Offender/Predator registry and
Florida's laws regarding sexual
offenders an A plus rating on their
national survey that compares all
50 states' sex offender registration
and community notification pro-
grams. Florida was the only state in
the nation to receive this prestigious
designation.
"FDLE is very proud that parents
for Megan's Law has acknowl-
edged the dedication and hard
work that our personnel put into
making our web site accessible and
useful for our citizens," FDLE Com-


missioner Jerry Bailey said. "We're
particularly grateful for the support
that we've received from Gov. Bush
and members of the Florida Legis-
lature, for their support enables us
to provide this useful tool."
The survey evaluated registra-
tion periods, accessibility of sex
offender registration information,
the extent of information available,
and the presence of sex offender
civil commitment laws. States were
assigned a letter grade based upon
the results of ten questions with
bonus points granted for states that
have enacted residency restrictions.
Laura A. Ahearn, Executive
Director of Parents for Megan's Law
applauded FDLE for receiving the
highest grade, A plus, in the entire


nation, "FDLE's comprehensive
approach and proactive initiatives
far surpass minimal federal stan-
dards and are the model that states
across our nation should follow."
Through the Public Safety Infor-
mation Act of 1997, Florida became
the first state to list sexual predators
and offenders on the Internet and
to make the same information
available through a 24-hour/day
hotline. This Act allowed the Flori-
da Department of Law Enforce-
ment to give the public access to
information important to their abili-
ty to protect themselves and their
families against sexual offenders.
Most recently, FDLE added a
"neighborhood search" capability
to its registry Web site. This allows


users to enter any address in Florida
and search the registry for any sex-
ual offender/predator registrants
with current addresses within a one
to five mile radius of the address
entered. It also generates maps of
where each sex offender and pred-
ator resides.
The FDLE Sex Offender/Preda-
tor Registry currently houses data
on nearly 38,000 registered sex
offenders and predators. Citizens
can search for offenders and preda-
tors residing in their community by
visiting www.floridasexoffender
.net. For more information regard-
ing Megan's Law and the survey,
contact the National Megan's Law
Helpline at 1-888-ASK-PFML or visit

He presented a drawing of
capital improvements the fair
association proposed to make to
the agri-civic center grounds
including water, electricity and
fencing.
Bill Farris noted that the county
spends about $12 million a year
on the jail.
"All we're asking you to do is
put a little bit on the good guys,"
he said.
Brenda O'Connor, executive
director of the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Chamber of Cormmerce, said
1%hile the lair is a -good idea it
would conflict with the Speckled
Perch Festival. She said the eco-
nomic impact would be greater if
the fair were held at another time.
She feared the Speckled Perch
Festival and the rodeo would
draw revenue from the fair.
Mr. Farris said people could
attend the Speckled Perch Festival
in the morning and rides will not
start at the fair until the afternoon.
Mr. Domer asked about the
possibility of holding the Speckled
Perch Festival at the agri-civic cen-
ter.
Mrs. O'Connor said this was
something the Chamber board of
directors could consider.
Commission Chairman John
Abney asked what effect the con-
troversy over the Hamrick Trust
would have on the festival.
Mrs. O'Connor replied that it
might cause them to go back to
having only arts and crafts ven-
dors.
Mrs. Syfrett noted that a fair

said that is why it is scheduled in
conjunction with the youth live-
stock show, which is always the
third week in March.
County Attorney John Cassels
promised to have a draft of a lease
for the fair association by June 8.
In another agri-civic center
item, the board discussed signage
for the center.
Mark Brandel, representing the
agri-civic center advisory commit-
tee, reported on his organization's
research concerning signs. He


said it was important to have
color signs in order to sell adver-
tising. He said the committee
looked at three things clarity of
message, LED technology and
overall appearance. He men-
tioned that a dark border would
set off the message.
Mr. Brandel estimated that the
signs they considered would cost
between $100,000 and $150,000.
Commission Chairman John
Abney noted that some of the cost
of the sign could be offset by the
sale of advertising.


The planning department was
directed to analyze the technical
specifications of the recommend-
ed signs for consistency with the.
Land Development Regulations.
In other action, the board:
.* abandoned platted rights-of-
way in Okeechobee Park subdivi-
sion;
approved a list. road repairs
to be performed;
purchased four hydraulic
stretchers for $39,108;

dence has slowed.
"What you're doing is holding
back time," Dr. Snyder said.
Near the subsidence post, living
facilities originally built for staff at
the research station can be seen
propped up on pillars rising many
feet into the air. According to staff,
the buildings also had once sat
cleanly on the ground, resting on
the dirt. Now, it seems as though
the person who ordered the
homes built wanted them high
above the land in case of a flood.
It is an indication of how badly
the lands that were once com-
pletely flooded have adapted to
their drier condition. When the soil
is underwater, the organisms that
feed on it are not able to capture
the oxygen necessary for them to
live, so the result is dirt unaffected
by subsidence.
But not all of the land is sensi-
tive to subsidence.
Torry Muck, the name given to
the rich soil extending a mile or
further from the lake is in no dan-
ger of disappearing anytime soon.
The fertile ground there, if you ask
Dr. Snyder, is the richest in the
country. The subsidence threat
only exists in about 80 percent of

Today the predictions are not as

bigger threat in the development
that seems slowly to be heading
west from coastal communities;
as well as increasingly challenging
government policy that is proving
a growing concern for the sugar
industry in general.
Though the farming practices
that are currently in use are certain
to no longer be able to sustain the
kind of harvest in the future, if a
market continues to exist for sugar,
and there is a large enough
demand for it here, Dr. Snyder is
confident that scientists and tech-
nological advancements can
extend the EAA's life cycle to well
beyond 50 years into the future.
"If the price of sugarcane were
good enough, you could grow it
on that linoleum floor," Dr. Snyder
said at the research station's
library last week.
Work at the present time else-
where in the area is concentrating
on perhaps formulating an
enhanced sugar crop that can sur-
vive larger amounts of water. The-
oretically, if a crop can be grown in
conditions with high water tables,
subsidence concerns are erased.
But Dr. Snyder and others agree
that only time will tell how exactly
agriculture will adapt to subsi-
dence in the area, or whether fac-
tors that have nothing to do with
agriculture will ultimately be the
deciding factor.

Testing
The eighth grade FCAT Writ-
ing test scores have been
released. Our eighth graders
cumulative scores increased
from 3.6 last year to 3.8 this year.
Cumulative scores include many
students who are not counted


towards school grading includ-
ing: special education students,
ESOL (English for Speakers of
Other Languages, arid students
entering school after October).
The State has asked schools to
test as many students as possible
including many students who
had been exempt in prior years
including full-time special edu-
cation and students who speak
very little English. After pulling
out the scores of those students
who do not count towards the
grading of schools and compar-
ing this year's scores to last, we
found' that this year's scores
were much higher than last;
years' scores. Individual FCAT
Reading and, Mathematics test
scores have not been distributed
to schools yet.

Family fun at the BioControl Brain gowl and Bash to be held May 20


During the past few weeks,
Extension staff around the Trea-
sure Coast has been working with
local teens, getting them ready for
a fun-filled event scheduled for this
coming Saturday. Our second
annual BioControl Brain Bowl and
Bash will be held in Fort Pierce at
the UF/1FAS Indian River Research
& Education Center on May 20th,
and Okeechobee's team is ready
to bring home the trophy.
With apologies to David Letter-
man, today's column lists our top
ten fun things to do at the Buggy
Bash, to be held from I until 3
p.m., at the research center:
1. Suck bugs to kill Melaleuca
trees one illegal alien in South
Florida has taken over the Ever-
glades and is spreading all around
Lake Okeechobee. LIF scientists
have found that a couple of multi-
legged immigrants will chew up
this invasive tree. Collecting these
critters in our mini-Melapaluza
involves the use of a "bug-sucker"
a.k.a. an aspirator, which you can
use to collect your own weevils to
take home.
2. Decorate a Mr.& Mrs. Air-
Potato Head for over 50 years
kids have been poking holes and
decorating potatoes with all kinds
of eyes, ears, noses and other dec-
orations. Here in Florida, we have
lots of our own spuds that are use-
less for anything else but decorat-
ing. Air Potatoes are a real nui-


N ,UNIVERSITY OF
SFLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION
sance in Florida Yards and Neigh-
borhoods. So come out and learn
how scientists are developing
ways to eliminate them, and have
some fun with this noxious weed.
3. Race Dr Phil's Thorough-
bred Palmetto bugs UF's Emi-
nent Entomologist Phil Koehler
will lead several races in thie Great
American Cockroach Race. Partici-
pants will decorate their steeds
with racing stripes. The public can
then watch them "run for the
roses" as soon as the bugler calls
these steeds at Post-time to the
starting line.
4. Sniff termites with the Bug-
Master's dogs \we all know that
dogs are used to track down rnlss-
ing persons and illegal drugs, but
did you know that some pest con-
trol companies are now using the
sense of smell to detect wood-
chomping termites in homes and
buildings? A Brain Bowl sponsor
from Vero will be demonstrating at
the event how these destructive
pests can be detected by specially
trained dogs.
5. Get up close and personal
with: Maggots A LIF Entomolo-
gist will explain the wonderful
world of forensic entomology with


real samples of fly larva. She will
convince 'ou hoqw they are very
important in ridding the world of
unwanted creatures.
6. Crayon your face a few of
our artistic Brain Bowlers will pro-
vide beautifully personalized face
art for kids wishing to look a bit
buggy at the event. As with all our
activities, there \will be no Charge
for this activity.
7. Draw a picture and win cash
- a special art contest table will
be available for kids to create their
own buggy artwork, and for those
that wish to stick around, they can
enter it in our art contest. Judges
will be on hand to select the win-
ner in elementary, middle and
high school categories, and Bug
Master will provide a $50 cash
award to each age group for the
one the judges like the best.
8. Get paid to Hunt for Bugs -
capture insects at our display gar-
den, learn 'how to preserve and
mount them in a display box, and.


have your collection judged.
Another $50 cash award will be
provided by Bug Master for the
best box.
9. Team up for our Caterpillar
Canter get a group of your
friends together, dress up like a
caterpillar and win this relay race.
The winning larva team earns a
Brain Bowl T-shirt for each set of
legs and pro-legs. (Extra Brain-
Bowl t-shirts will also be on sale
for slow speed caterpillars.)
10. Learn how to kill an alliga-
tor, infect a mosquito and destroy
evil weevils Okeechobee Brain
Bowl team members have been
carefully watching how well a flea
beetle works to chew up alligator
weed, an aquatic plant that clogs
up area canals and ponds. The
Indian River team has been com-
paring how well an infectious dis-
ease agent (Bacillus thuringiensis)
and a hungry protozoan (cope-
pod) work when they are put to
work killing mosquito larva. The
St. Lucie Brain-bowlers are meas-
uring the damage that Evil Mexi-
can Bromeliad weevils do to native
air plants. At 3:30 p.m. the teams
will make presentations on these
experiments conducted recently at
the UF Biological Control
Research and Containment Lab.
And, remember to come cheer
our Okeechobee team on to victo-
ry. From 3:30 until 5 p.m., specta-
tors will be amazed how much


knowledge our Brain Bowl teams
have learned as they,crawl on to
victory in this year's quiz bowl
event. Students from Okeechobee
and St. Lucie County will be trying
hard to unseat the reigning cham-
pion Brain Bowl team from Indian
River in this question and answer
contest.
The public can also meet UF
scientists who are working at our
new BioControl Containment
Facility. For more information, you
can get directions from our office
or from the Brain Bowl program
coordinator, Ms. Queen Cock-


roach herself, a.k.a. Robin
Koestoyo, at (772) 468-3922, Ext.

Summer program
The most important educa-
tional goal of our school and the
State of Florida is to ensure that
all students learn to read. GEAR
UP, 21st Century Safe and Smart
Schools, and Yearling Middle
School want to provide our stu-
dents with as many educational
advantages possible. Students
needing extra academic assis-
tance will be given the opportu-
nity to attend a special Summer
Reading Program. The purpose
of this program is to increase
each student's reading level by
one grade level. Students will
use various reading programs,
participate in shared reading and
skill activities and complete a
SCANS project as well. Last years
students made remarkable gains
in their reading levels while
enjoying many reading adven-
tures, enrichment activities, and
guest speakers. The dates for the
Summer Reading Program are
June 5 through June 30, Monday
though Friday. The program
hours will be from 7:30 a.m.
until 1 p.m. Breakfast and trans-
portation will be provided. The
Summer Reading Program is
limited to the first 100 students
who return their registration
form. Yearling and Osceola Mid-
dle Schools are offering a sum-
mer "Math for Promotion" class
for middle school students who
have passed only four out of six
classes. If one of the two classes
the student failed for the year
was math, the student is eligible
for the math class in order to
possibly earn one more credit
for promotion to the next grade. .
All middle school summer pro-
grams will be held at Osceola
Middle School this year. Please
contact the school at (863)462-
5056 if you have any questions
about the program.

The clerk's office forwards
the file to a judge for review. The
judge's decision is based solely
on what is contained in the writ-
ten petition from the party. If
granted, a temporary injunction
is entered and a hearing is
scheduled within 15 days to
afford both sides an opportunity
to be heard.
An injunction is an order on
paper signed by a judge, but it is
not in effect until the other per-
son is served. At the final hear-
ing, a judge will decide whether
or not to issue a permanent
injunction.
An injunction case becomes
a public record in the clerk's
office unless a juvenile is


entorcelmlien llt v 1i a I
assault, battery or other crime
has been committed. As a con-
dition of pre-trial release, a
judge can require a defendant to
stay away from you or from cer-
tain places.
Still another option is to
request a "no trespassing"
agreement be issued by a law
enforcement officer. If that
agreement is violated, criminal
charges may also be pursued
from the clerk's office.

team were: (left to right) Emily Wherrell, Brittany Serrano and

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Yearling Middle School (YMS)
FFA teams, under the guidance of
agriculture teacher Buddy Mills,
had a highly successful year with
many advancing to and placing in
state competition.
The land judging and evalua-
tion team comprised of team
members: James Sharpe, Sarah
Payne, Lydia Rodriguez and Austin
Harvey, competed in a district con-
test on March 3, and advanced to
the state contest in Williston on
March 31. The team which is spon-
sored by the Okeechobee Soil and
Water Conservation District
learned the skills needed to deter-
mine the slope, texture, soil prop-
erties, classifications and how the
soils should be used.
Horse judging team members
were: Brittany Serrano, Emily
Wherrell, Kayla Jansen, Kaylee
Dees and alternate Lisa Thiboult:
They were required to learn the
body parts of a horse, breeds, col-
ors, and be able to determine prop-
er confirmation and balance. They
also learned the correct movement
and how a horse should perform.
With the knowledge they gained,
they were required to rate each
class and place the horses in a
desired order to meet the required
criteria.
The dairy judging team won at
district level and advanced to the
state finals. They finished in second
place overall among Florida mid-
dle schools. Their team members
were: Rachel Rabon, Lydia
Rodriguez, Lisa Thiboult, Garrett
Rucks and Samantha Fryar. They
were coached by Jamie Burnham
and Rachel Rock. When judging
dairy cows, there is a lot to know.
They had to know the different
breeds and where they originated.
They also needed to know the
parts of a dairy cow. When evaluat-
ing a dairy cow, they are required
to know the conformation and
structure of the udder, as well as
many other parts of the cow. There
is a written test that involves a great


deal of math used to determine the
amount of milk produced, the type,
the quality and content of the milk.
Okeechobee students snagged the
top two places in the state contest.
The high individual in the state was
Rachel Rabon. Second place was
won by Garrett Rucks. The team
will receive awards for their
accomplishments in June during
the state FFA Convention in Orlan-
do.
The public speaking team will
head to state competition in June.
Team members are (left) Hannah
Rooks and (right) Valerie McKee.
Ms. Rooks will compete against.
district winners from the Florida
FFA chapters in the prepared
speaking category during the state
FFA convention in June in Orlando.
She has learned to research, devel-
op and deliver a speech to a panel
of judges and audience at local,
sub-district and district levels. Plac-
ing first in all competitions
advanced her to the state level.
Valerie McKee competed at the
local, sub-district and district levels.
Her category is extemporaneous,
which means she selects an agri-
cultural topic and has 30 minutes
to prepare a 4-6 minute speech.
She will present the speech in a
contest against all other district FFA
contestants in Orlando in June dur-
ing the 78th Annual FFA State Con-
vention.
The meat judging team finished
in first place at the state competi-
tion against 34 other middle school
teams. The event is held each year
at the University of Florida Meats
Laboratory. Team members were
James Sharpe, Valerie McKee,
Kelsey Rodriguez and Lisa Thi-
boult. Student coach Austin Harvey
worked with the team to prepare
them for the competition with the
help of the managers of Winn-
Dixie, Publix and Mosquito Creek
Grocery who allowed the team to
view meat cuts and practice at their
stores. The meat judging team is
required to be able to identify 40
retail cuts of beef, pork and lamb.
They also had to be able to rate car-
casses in order of quality. A written

The team will be recognized for
their accomplishments at the FFA
state convention in Orlando in June.
The citrus judging team finished
in sixth place at the state contest
held in Lakeland. Team members
were James Sharpe, Calixtro Villal-
pando, Valerie McKee and Austin
Harvey. The citrus judging career
development event requires mem-
bers to know and identify many
varieties of citrus fruit, citrus dis-
eases, citrus rootstocks, plant defi-
ciencies, insects, weeds, grasses
and nutrient problems. Mr. Dan
Culbert from the UF-IFAS Exten-


sion office was instrumental in
preparing the team for the compe-
tition.
The tool identification team
placed fourth out of 34 teams in the
state contest on April 28 at the Uni-
versity of Florida. Team members
were Drew Selvey, Matt Dorriety,
Justin Morgan, James Sharpe and
alternate Lisa Thiboult. Justin Mor-
gan had the high point score for the
team. The contest required that the
members be able to ,identify 187
tools. They had to alsb.be able to
explain the use of each tool and
what agricultural industry it was
used in.
