Basin boat ramp
may damage boat
Boaters are being urged to
avoid using the boat ramp
located in the back basin at the
Okee-Tantie Marina and Camp-
ground.
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) said
due to low lake levels, use of
the back ramp could damage a
boat. Also, it's doubtful that the
lake level- is high enough to
allow a boat to leave the basin
and enter the lake.
The sheriff's office did say,
however, that airboaters can
still safely use the ramp.
Boaters are urged to either
use the main ramps at Okee-
Tantie, or the ramps at Scott
Driver Memorial Park.

Who did it? Just ask the
Forensic Science Club at New
Endeavor High School's after-
school program. For the past
few weeks, the extended ninth
graders have been learning
about the fascinating world of
crime scene investigators.
Teacher Rosemary Morgan
approached Principal Andy
Brewer with the idea as a fun
project to conclude the school
year. He immediately liked the
project because it covers all
four core curriculum subjects.
Also, the project would provide
high-interest, hands-on activi-
ties for the students. Page 3

Dike condition questioned


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
City and county officials as
well as interested citizens gath-
ered at the Okeechobee County
Civic Center Thursday evening,
May 25 to hear a panel of
experts discuss the condition of
the Herbert Hoover dike and
evacuation plans. Okeechobee
County Commission Chairman
John Abney was moderator for
the group
Steve Duba, chief engineer


for the Jacksonville District, rep-
resented the U. S. Army Corps of
Engineers (COE). He said he
was walking a fine line. He said
he did not want to frighten peo-
ple. On the other hand, he want-
ed them to take the situation
seriously.
"The risks are real and need
to be taken seriously," he cau-
tioned.
He said the good thing to
come out of Hurricane Katrina
is that it focused public atten-


tion on the condition of the
dike.
He noted that all earthen
structures leak. He said that
when seepage moves material it
is called piping, and piping, if
unrepaired could lead to dike
collapse.
However, he said COE has a
schedule for regular inspections
of the dike. The frequency of
inspections increases as the
lake rises. Below 14.5 feet, quar-
terly dike inspections are con-

ducted. As the lake level rises,
the frequency of inspections
increases. Mr. Duba said materi-
als are prepositioned at 20 loca-
tions around the dike for quick
repairs.
He said the dike was built as
a muck levee it is was not
designed for today's standards.
However, he added that the
level of protection is significant.
He predicted that it would cost
$10 billion to bring the dike up
to the current standard for


dams.
Mr. Duba said that recently
COE has been actively manag-
ing the lake at lower levels. He
said the lake is one and half feet
lower than this time last year.
He feels we are in good shape
going into hurricane season as
far as lake levels.

Program aids



first time



homebuyers


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
On Thursday, May 25, the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners con-
ducted their last scheduled
meeting for the month. It was
relatively short and free of
controversial items.
The board received com-
ments on a program for first
time homebuyers and
received the quarterly report
from Okeechobee Main
Street. They also discussed
signage for the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center.
Gordon Jernigan of
Escambia County Housing
.Finance Authority, which is
actually a state agency,
explained how his organiza-
tion issues tax exempt bonds
in participating counties to
make home buying possible


for first time home buyers in
low and middle income cate-
gories There are currently 19
counties participating in the
bond program. In the past
Okeechobee County has par-
ticipated in the program, but
has not done so for several
years.
Mr. Jernigan said the
authority has issued a billion
dollars worth of bonds in 17
years with no cost or liability
to participating counties That
is because the bonds are
secured 100 percent by the
mortgages. In addition to first
time home buyers, he noted
that the program is now avail-
able to hurricane victims.
The board voted to hold a
public hearing on June 22 to
address the county's entering
the program. If they vote to

Kiwanis Club honors veterans


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Kiwanis Club members
who served in the armed
forces, regular club members
and their guests enjoyed a spe-
cial program at Thursday's
club meeting. The program
commemorated the sacrifices
of those who served in the
armed forces, giving their last
full measure of devotion.
Kiwanian, Paul Mitchell
emceed the program which
began with a special Memorial
Day prayer by Rev. E.H. Stew-
art, Pastor of the New St.
Stephen AME Church. The pro-
gram also featured music by
guitarist, Randy Whipple who
played and sang a stirring ren-
dition of God Bless America.
Mr. Mitchell asked each vet-
eran in attendance at the meet-
ing to speak on what their serv-
ice in the military meant to


them. Club members and vet-
erans, Frank Irby, Dick Blair,
Ben Vaughn, Mark Reynolds,
Retired Judge William Hendry,
Barney Salzburg, Clayton
Williams, Jack Wolff, Jerry
Bryant, and guest, Bob Owens,
each commented on their serv-
ice, many stating that their mili-
tary service was a positive
experience.
Club member Jerry Bryant,
a Viet Nam era veteran spoke
to club members giving them a
brief history of how Memorial
Day came to be. He also pre-
sented the group with the WWI
poem, 'In Flanders Fields,' writ-
ten by Canadian doctor, John
McCrae. It was in that poem
that Dr. McCrae spoke of the
poppies growing on the field
where soldiers lay buried. Mr.
Bryant stated that the poppies
later became the symbol of the
Veterans of Foreign Wars. The
symbol was recognized some


time after WWI ended.
Mr. Bryant also made Kiwa-
nis Club members aware of the
local residents who gave their
lives as they fought in foreign
wars. He said that many listed
on the Veteran's Memorial in
Flagler Park who died during
the Viet Nam era are those he
grew up with those who
went to war- and those who
did not come home.
Closing the special pro-
gram, Mr. Mitchell presented a
brief music video depicting
images of soldiers in the fields
of battle. He asked club mem-
bers to keep the memory of
fallen soldiers alive and to
remember their sacrifices.
Club members were
encouraged to observe a
moment of silence on Monday,
May 29, at 3 p.m. for fallen vet-
erans in their memory and, in
support of their families.

that it would result in the lake
being maintained at a lower
water level.
"I think we need to get to the
point we release water year
round," he said.
George Home, director of
operations for South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) advocated lower vol-
ume and longer duration releas-
es to the tributaries:
"The threats are real and we
should take them seriously:
echoed Mr. Home. He urged
working to get funding for
improving the dike.
"We should have already had
a regional evacuation plan,"
asserted Wayne Hinnant of the
state office of emergency man-
agement.
His office is doing a thorough
study of evacuation plans. He
said that such things as direction
of storm, size and forward speed
would be taken into considera-
tion in formulating evacuation
plans
By June 1, he said that a draft
of a regional evacuation plan
would be presented to the gover-
nor. Mr. Hinnant said his official
function was to coordinate plan-
ning-effortslto form evacuation
plans.
He emphasized that as of this,
time, nothing is certain about
evacuation plans. He said they
are planning for a worse case
scenario and identifying poten-
tial problems..
"We don't want. to scare any-
body," Mr. Hinnant said. "Just
because a hurricane comes, we
are not going to ask you to evac-
uate." .
"It's really your responsibility
to take care of your family," he
added.
Gene O'Neill of Okeechobee
County Emergency Mangage-
ment said that as people evacu-
ate from either coast, gridlock
occurs on the state's interior two
lane highways. He said that
Okeechobee schools might have
to be opened to shelter out of
town people who are fleeing the
storm and get caught in gridlock.

Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
A panel of.experts assembled at the Okeechobee County Civic Center on Thursday evening,
May 25 to discuss the condition of the Herbert Hoover dike and evacuation plans. They are,
left to right, George Horne, director of operations for South Florida Water Management Dis-
trict, Steve Duba, chief engineer for the Jacksonville District of the U. S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers, John Abney, chairman of the Okeechobee County Commission, who served as the
panel's moderator, Gene O'Neill, Okeechobee County's director of emergency management,
and Wayne Hinnant of the state division of emergency management.


In response to a question
about the possibility of keeping
the lake as low as it is now, Mr.
Duba replied, "No".,
He said 'the lake drains the
5,000 square mile Kissimmee
River basin and water managers
are limited as to how much
water they can release. He said
the lake could fill up eight times
faster than it can be empted.
Mr. Horn-esaid-there are not
enough outle s to lower the lake
level. He said the water couldn't
go the Everglades unless the
phosphorous is removed.
"The ability to move water
south is limited and will always
be," he said.
Mr. Home said there was no
quick fix and a solution would
take a long time.
Mr. Duba said the COE has
prepared inundation mapping
showing where water would go
and how high it would get
because of breaches. He said
that where there.is a breach, the
inundation map along with the
current lake level would tell
emergency management offi-
cials what to expect. He said
there are numerous dikes,
canals, and railroad beds that
intersect the area to catch or
hold back water.
Okeechobee County is rela-
tively safe as far as potential dan-
gers due to the condition of the


dike.
A 1993 COE report divided the
levee into eight numbered sec-
tions designated as Reaches. The
boundaries of the Reaches are
determined by. natural barriers
that would contain the water if
the dike were breached at that
Reach.
The Reaches are not num-
bered consecutively and were
originally numbered to identify
priorities. Reach 1 extends from
Port Mayaca to Belle Glade. Lake
Harbor and the Caloosahatchee
River are the boundaries of
Reach 2. Lake Harbor to Belle
Glade are the limits of Reach 3.
Reach 4 extends from the
Caloosahatchee River to Fisheat-
ing Creek. Reach 5, which
includes most of Okeechobee
County, extends from the
Kissimmee River to Nubbin
Slough. Reach 6 extends from
Fisheating Creek to Indian
Prairie Canal. Nubbin Slough
and Port Mayaca mark the
boundaries of Reach 7. Reach 8
extends from Indian Prairie
Canal to the Kissimmee Rivern
Since the original designa-
tion, Mr. Duba said COE has
been more definitive in setting
priorities. He said the current pri-
orities are Reaches 1, 3, 2, 7, 4, 5,
6 and 8. This makes the Okee-
chobee area sixth out of eight.
He said the amount .of work


required in Reach 5 would not
be as great as the work required
in Reach 1
Currently the lake level is
12.76 feet above sea level. Mr.
Duba said. most of Okeechobee
Countyis at 20 feet in elevation or
higher. The airport is at 32 feet.
He noted that 18.8 feet above sea
level is the highest lake level ever
recorded
"As far as I know, the lake
level never reached 19 feet," he
asserted.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
asked about releasing lake water
to tide through the present canal
system. Mr. Home said the pres-
ent canal system could handle
only a small volume of the water
necessary to brink the lake level
down.
Commissioner Ray Domer
asked about making the
stormwater treatment areas
(STA) s more efficient. Mr. Duba
stated they are very efficient. He
said the key is to put in more
.STAs that in turn would get
phosphorous levels down in the
lake down resulting in the ability
to release more water to the
Everglades He said the, water
quality from STAs is better than
they thought it would be.
In response to a question Mr.
O'Neill noted that some pet
friendly evacuation plans,;must
be devised.

enter the program, commission-
ers will need to adopt an inter-
local agreement allowing the
authority to operate in this coun-
ty. The agreement would be in
effect only as long as there are
outstanding bonds that are
issued this year. It would take
additional board action to par-
ticipate in the program next
year.
Maureen Burroughs of Okee-
chobee Main Street presented
the second quarter update and
financial statement for her
organization. She said Main
Street continues to apply for
grants for community improve-
ment. They recently received a
$6,000 grant from Florida Main
Street to be used to develop a
site plan for a park to be located
in front of the courthouse.
Mrs. Burroughs said the
fourth annual barbecue was the
biggest and best ever. Main
Street participated in a Plant a


Tree Program on Arbor Day and
in the recent Jimmy Osceola
Day. This fall there are plans for
a Seminole Indian Pow Wow.
Mrs. Burroughs said her
organization received a letter
the day before from Big Lake
Roofing offering to put a roof on
the old jail at their cost. Main
Street has been trying to secure
grant money to restore the old
jail. She said that this offer cou-
pled with the money the county
has already appropriated should
help to secure a grant.
Mrs. Burroughs stated that
Main Street had recently pur-
chased 15 trash receptacles to
be placed downtown on Park
Street and that they had been in
contact with the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation (FDOT)
concerning entrance signs to the
city.
Turing to a matter that was
brought up at their last meeting,
commissioners spent consider-
able discussing signage for the
agri-civic center. It was the con-
sensus of commissioners to use


a sign that allowed for text
changes at regular intervals.
They are not in favor of a sign
that involves flashing or moving
lights. They discussed selling
advertisements to be placed at
the base of the sign. In addition,
they discussed selling sponsor-
ship for events to be held at the
center. Advertising for the spon-
sors would be contained in the
changing text of the sign
announcing the event. Commis-
sioners wanted to make certain
the sign did not violate any local
sign regulations and did not
conflict with FDOT regulations.
In other action, the board:
Proclaimed the week of
May 28 June 3 to be Hurricane
Preparedness Week in Okee-
chobee County;
Proclaimed June 15 to be
World Elder Abuse Awareness
Day in Okeechobee County;
-agreed to purchase an emer-
gency generator for the airport

tration (FAA)/FDOT grant
money;

through Banc of American Leas-
ing & Capital;

Scheduled a public hearing
for Aug. 10 on imposition of resi-
dential fire/rescue assessments

tion of Heritage Village;

The Okeechobee News, Saturday, May 27, 2006
-Ap


Submitted to Okeechobee News
Okeechobee resident, Kenny Osteen and Ft. Pierce resident, Richard Freeman both received
the Bud Adams Scholarship at a ceremony held on March 28. Both scholars hold prominent
positions with agricultural businesses.

Bud Adams Scholarship awards presented to

University of Florida agricultural students


FT. PIERCE'- Two local stu-
dents, one an Okeechobee resi-
dent, who attend the University of
Florida Indian River Research and
Education Center were named
the first recipients of The Bud
Adams Scholarship Award.
The award was established
recently by agricultural magnate
Bud Adams to provide funds for
students pursuing bachelor's
degrees in agricultural disciplines
at the university's Fort Pierce cam-
pus, the Indian River Research
and Education Center, or IRREC.
Other award criteria were aca-
demic excellence and students
who are the first in their families
to attend college.
"Bud Adams' leadership in
agriculture is renowned and we
are grateful he continually sup-
ports our students," said Brian
Scully, IRREC professor and direc-.
tor. "Our students are tomorrow's,
leaders and we are pleased."
The scholarship awards were
presented by Bud Adams to the
recipients during a UF College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences
Alumni "Gator Social" event held
on March 28, at IRREC.
"I owe the University of Florida
a great deal because I received a


quality education from UF," said
Bud Adams. "I have a love of this
area and I think the future of our
agricultural interests depends on
education. I would like to help
provide a well educated work
force in this community."
The scholars are: Fort Pierce
resident Richard Freeman, and
Okeechobee resident Kenny
Osteen. Osteen and Freeman are
from agricultural families and
each has made lifelong commit-
ments to the industry. Freeman
and Osteen are seeking a Bache-
lor of Science degree in Agribusi-
ness; each both have full time
positions with prominent local
agricultural firms. .
Freeman is employed full-time
with Lambeth Groves Fresh Juice
Co. in Vero Beach at the organiza-
tion's fresh juice plant. His duties
include overseeing shipping of
products, maintenance of the
firm's truck fleet and truck driv-
ing. Prior to attending UF, he was
enrolled at the Abraham Baldwin

NEHS students learn forensic

techniques in after school program


Who did it? Just ask the Foren-
sic Science Club at New Endeavor
High School's after-school pro-
gram. For the past few weeks, the
extended ninth graders have been
learning about the fascinating
world of crime scene investiga-
tors.
Teacher Rosemary Morgan
approached Principal Andy Brew-
er with the idea as a fun project to
conclude the school year. He
immediately liked the project
because it covers all four core cur-
riculum subjects. Also, the project
would provide .high-interest,
hands-on activities for the stu-
dents.
Mr. Brewer commented, "This
is a time of the year when students
are looking forward to summer. It
is up to us to provide fun, yet edu-
cational projects to keep them
focused on our vision."
Some of the projects that the
Forensic Science Club completed
included; fingerprint identification


Sophisticated bi-level 4Bd/3Ba home
has been refurbished with the finest
details throughout. The master suite is
one of the many extras of this magnifi-
cent home featuring a garden tub and
double shower, On 1/2 acre that backs

and verification, DNA kits, and
PowerPoint presentations.
The highlight of the project
was a cooperative learning exer-
cise that allowed the students to
work on a real case. The students
had to find physical evidence, pro-
vide case information and do a
case summary. The projects were
judged on Wednesday, May 3. The
winners of the contest were; Rae-
gen Bush, Maria Maldonado, Adri-
anna Martinez and Ciara Silvas.
Second place winners were Jere-
my Barnhart and Thomas Draugh-
on.
Deputy Crawford, the School
Resource Officer, who was
involved in the project from the
onset, commented, "It is encour-
aging to see students interested in


a vital aspect of law enforcement.
Hopefully, this will encourage
some of these students to pursue
a career in forensic science."
The administration at New
Endeavor would like to give a spe-
cial thanks to Tammy Wright,
Rosemary Morgan, Sharon
Whitaker, Sue Clements, Deputy
Crawford, Cathleen Watson
(Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office: CSI) and the Alpha Pro-
gram for making this project pos-
sible.

continues to strive in the direction
of The Okeechobee County
School District's vision of "Achiev-
ing Excellence". If you have any

Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
FREE LUNCH: I notice that they are having free lunch for the chil-
dren in the summer programs during school. How about having free
lunch when school starts for everybody? There are more kids on free
lunch than for the people that pay. Let's help the people out that pay a
little bit and have free lunch during the school year.

NOT READY TO MAKE NICE: Hooray for the Dixie Chicks. I am glad
to hear and see their new video, "Not Ready to Make Nice." You can
hate them all you like about what they said, however, haven't we all
said something without thinking first? I am glad that VH-1 has played
their video. My hat's off to them with such a powerful comeback song.

NOTHING TO DO: Regarding, teenagers complaining about "noth-
ing to do." Okeechobee was a small town when I lived there as a
teenager but there was plenty to do. Yet, we complained. It is a nation-
al teenage complaint: "There's nothing to do HERE!" 'Chobee had
grown a lot since I lived there. We didn't have a bowling alley, a dairy
queen, or a multi screen theater to choose from. The old Okeechobee
Drive-in had one screen. The old Okeechobee I knew is gone with
many of the people and places I knew from way-back-when.

ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: I think the ones really hurting America are
the people who employ illegals. For the most part, these are rich peo-
ple who are too cheap to offer real Americans a decent living wage.
They want to get even richer, so they break the law and hire illegals.
The government should place big fines on anyone caught hiring ille-
gals. That would put an end to it. If no one would. hire them, they
would not come here. There would be no reason. There is no job an
American won't do if you pay a living wage. But these wealthy folks
don't want to pay a living wage. They want to pay as little as possible,
even if it means breaking the law to do so, so they can keep more
money for themselves. I say prosecute the employers.

RIGHTS: I don't understand how people can be protesting and say-
ing illegal immigrants should have rights. They broke the law and
snuck into the country. The only right they have is to go back where
they came from. If they want to immigrate, they should follow our
laws and meet the requirements to come here as legal immigrants.
Our great-grandparents came here from other countries and they had


,- -.ar j.- *---- - -. --.. ---- -
Every other country on the face of the earth has limits and rules about
who can enter. Why should the USA have to take anyone who sneaks
in?

CODE ENFORCEMENT: The junkyard man is back at it again. Looks
like if you give this man an inch he will take a mile. Why do the city offi-
cials put up with this? He has boats, truck, etc. and junk sitting in front
again. I thought this was supposed to be a clean area. Why can't
something be done? He has been making a mockery out of the county
and city governments for quite a few years. I think its time that some-
thing be done about this matter.

Letter to the Editor


What we owe
our soldiers
Every Memorial Day, we pay
tribute to the American men and
women who have died in com-
bat. With speeches and solemn
ceremonies, we recognize their
courage and valor. But one fact
goes unacknowledged in our
Memorial Day tributes: all too
many of our soldiers have died
unnecessarily-because they
were sent to fight for a purpose
other than America's freedom.
The proper purpose of a gov-
ernment is to protect its citizens'
lives and freedom against the initi-
ation of force by criminals at
home and aggressors abroad.
The American government has a
sacred responsibility to recognize
the individual value of every one
of its citizens' lives, and thus to do
everything possible to protect the
rights of each to life, liberty, prop-
erty, and the pursuit of happiness.
This absolutely includes our sol-
diers.
Soldiers are not sacrificial
objects; they are full-fledged
Americans with the same moral
right as the rest of us to the pursuit
of their own goals, their own
dreams, their own happiness.
Rational soldiers enjoy much of
the work of military service, take


pride in their ability to do it
superlatively, and gain profound
satisfaction in protecting the free-
dom of every American, including
their own freedom.
Soldiers know that in entering
the military, they are risking their
lives in the event of war. But this
risk is not, as it is often described,
a "sacrifice" for a "higher cause."
When there is a true threat to
America, it is a threat to all of our
lives and loved ones, soldiers
included. Many become soldiers
for precisely this reason; it was,
for instance, the realization of the
threat of Islamic terrorism after
September 1 1-when 3,000 inno-
cent Americans were slaughtered
in cold blood on a random Tues-
day morning-that prompted so
many to join the military.
For an American soldier, to
fight for freedom is not to fight for
a "higher cause," separate from
or superior to his own life-it is to
fight for his own life and happi-
ness. He is willing to risk his life in
time of war because he is unwill-
ing to live as anything other than a
free man. He does not want or
expect to die, but he would rather
die than live in slavery or perpetu-
al fear. His attitude is epitomized
by the words of John Stark, New
Hampshire's most famous soldier
in the Revolutionary War: "Live
free or die."

What we owe these men who
fight so bravely for their and our
freedom is to send them to war
only when that freedom is truly
threatened, and to make every
effort to protect their lives during
war-by providing them with the
most advantageous weapons,
training, strategy, and tactics pos-
sible. *
Shamefully, America has
repeatedly failed to meet this obli-
gation. It has repeatedly placed
soldiers in harm's way when no
threat to America existed-e.g., to
quell tribal conflicts in Somalia,
Bosnia, and Kosovo. America
entered World War 1, in which
115,000 soldiers died, with no
clear self-defense purpose but
rather on the vague, self-sacrificial
grounds that "The world must be
made safe for democracy." Amer-
ica's involvement in Vietnam, in
which 56,000 Americans died in a
fiasco that American officials
openly declared a "no-win" war,
was justified primarily in the
name of service to the South Viet-
namese. And the current war in
Iraq-which could have had a
valid purpose as a first step in
ousting the terrorist-sponsoring,
anti-American regimes of the Mid-
dle East-is responsible for thou-
sands of unnecessary American
deaths in pursuit of the sacrificial
goal of "civilizing" Iraq by


enabling Iraqis to select any gov-
ernment they wish, no matter
how anti-American.
In addition to being sent on ill-
conceived, "humanitarian" mis-
sions, our soldiers have been
compromised with crippling rules
of engagement that place the lives
of civilians in enemy territory
above their own. In Afghanistan
we refused to bomb many top
leaders out of their hideouts for
fear of civilian casualties; these
men continue to kill American
soldiers. In Iraq, our hamstrung
soldiers are not allowed to smash
a militarily puny insurgency-and
instead must suffer an endless
series of deaths by an undefeated
enemy.
To send soldiers into war with-
out a clear self-defense purpose,
and without providing them every
possible protection, is a betrayal
of their valor and a violation of
their rights.
This Memorial Day, we must
call for a stop to the sacrifice of
our soldiers and condemn all
those who demand it. It is only by
doing so that we can truly honor
not only our dead, but also our liv- "
ing: American soldiers who have
the courage to defend their free-
dom and ours.

facilities management business ...
(and) understands the concert
business." He also has experience

ognized as a Certified Facilities

agers. Mr. Mazzola has served in

try.

plex consists of a 10,000 seat arena,

the proclamation to Sheila Savage of Okeechobee Coun-
ty Senior Services.


Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River,
Okeechobee, Highlands and Glades
I Counties are still dry and brief
showers will do little to change con-
ditions. Wildfire danger will remain
high throughout the long Memorial
Day weekend. Except for lightning
caused fires, people can prevent
wildfires from starting.
Be careful when using fire for
anything including campfires and
barbecues. Make sure someone
watches the fire at all times until it
is out.
Know and practice firework
safety be sure fireworks don't
land on dry brush or grass.
Closely watch for any sparks
that might fly from equipment you
may be using. This includes not
only grinding equipment and
torches, but also any lawn care
equipment and off road vehicles.
Be sure that spark arrestors are


in place on all engines used near
wildland fuel. Have these engines
tuned so they don't back fire.
, Supervise children and be
sure they understand the dangers
of fire and the possible conse-
quences of their actions.
Report any fire immediately.
If parking on dry grass or
brush, remember that the heat of
your car can start a fire.
Extinguish all smoking mate-
rials before discarding.
Take some time to pick up your
yard and clean your roof so you
don't invite wildfire to your home.
* The long Memorial Day week-
end is one of those times when
extra caution is warranted. Camp-
fires, bonfires and fireworks should
be enjoyed carefully. Parents.
should be aware of and control
their children's activity with out-
door fires and fireworks.


Broward woman arrested,

for involvement in scam


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist has
announced the arrest of a
Broward County woman for her
involvement in a South Florida
land fraud scam. Sonia Hall, 35, is
accused of participating in an
elaborate scheme that defrauded
international victims out of valu-
able plots of land in Highlands
and Okeechobee Counties, today
worth as much as $910,000. An
investigation that began last July
uncovered a land fraud ring that
created fraudulent deeds to trans-
fer ownership of building lots in
,several Highlands County and
Okeechobee County subdivi-
sions. The scheme targeted
landowners who lived in Canada
or Puerto Rico. From June to
December 2004, members of the
ring created the deeds and forged
the victims' signatures, making it
appear as if the victims had will-
ingly given up ownership of their
properties. Hall, a Notary Public,
then notarized the signatures
indicating she had properly wit-
nessed the signatures and exam-
ined the victim's identification.
Some of the signatures Hall
reportedly notarized were of indi-
viduals who died several years
earlier.
"This is an outrageous abuse
of public trust for financial gain,"
said Mr. Crist. "We intend to bring
all who were involved in these
unscrupulous actions to jus-
tice." The scheme was uncov-
ered when the Highlands County
Clerk's Office contacted a victim
regarding a problem with the
deed he supposedly signed over.
The victim, who never signed the
deed, contacted Hall directly and
discovered she had fraudulently
notarized his signature.
The properties were trans-
ferred through various individu-
als to an offshore corporation. At
the time of the transfers, the
properties were worth more than
$500,000. Today, they are worth a
combined $910,000, according to
the properties' developer.
Hall is charged with one count
of conspiracy to commit organ-
ized fraud, a second-degree
felony, and six counts of false or
S fraudulent acknowledgment by a
notary, a third-degree felony. If
convicted on all charges, she
faces up to 45 years in prison and
fines up to $40,000. The case was
jointly investigated by the High-
lands County Sheriff's Office, the
Broward County Sheriff's Office,
the Federal Bureau of Investiga-
tion and the Royal Canadian
Mounted Police. The case will be
prosecuted Dy the Attorney uen-
eral's Office of Statewide Prose-
cution. The investigation into the


other ring members is ongoing.

10 RELIGION


Reflections of the Pulpit


By Rev. Calvin Fryar
Pastor, Brighton Baptist Church

The Place Where
the Lord Lay
"And the angel answered
and said unto the women, Fear
not ye: for I know that ye seek
Jesus, which was crucified. He
is not here: for He is risen, as He
said. Come, see the place
where the Lord lay. And go
quickly, and tell His disciples
that He is risen from the
dead." (Mathew 28:5-7)
We are invited to "Come and
see the place where the Lord
lay." When we observe the
place, we will note that it is a
garden a garden with a grave
in it. The world has no unmin-
gled cup of sweet to offer. But
we must remember, because
that tomb is empty and Christ is
risen there need be no blight
without a blessing, no sorrow
without a joy, etc.
We can see that this is a spe.-
cial tomb. It is a new tomb-
where never man was laid.
That is, it is a new tomb, a spe-
cial tomb prepared for the
Lord's use. And you can see by
its size, its position, and its
adornments, that it belongs to a
family possessed of wealth it is
a grave of the rich. It is just as
God's Word said it would be. It
is the fulfillment of the prophe-
cy found in Isaiah 53:9: "And he
made his grave with the
wicked, and with the rich in his
death; because he had done no
violence, neither was any deceit
in his mouth." The heavy stone,
which brawny arms had rolled
against its entrance, making it
fast, and setting a seal on it, has
been rolled away. The finger of
God touched the mighty stone,
moving it out of our way. God
has moved all that is against us
out of the way. He has allowed
us to look within the tomb and
we find it is empty. Christ is
risen!
Look for yourself. The place
where the Lord lay is a place of
instruction.
His resurrection is a fact
which cannot be denied. Paul
points out that He was seen by
many eye witnesses: "He was
buried, and that He rose again'
the third day according to the
scriptures: And that He was
seen of Cephas, then of the
twelve: After that, He was seen
of above five hundred brethren
at once; of whom the greater
part remain unto this present,
but some are fallen asleep.
After that, He was seen of
James; then of all the apostles.
And last of all He was seen of
me also, as of one born out of,
due time "(1 Cot 15:4-8).
The significance of such a:
fact should cause great rejoic-
ing among God's people.
Our salvation is not some
hearsay; it is a reality.
That means the atonement
is complete. Therefore, it is
urgent that we get the story out.
now.
Don Curry serves in the Sind
desert region of Pakistan with
the Bible and Medical Mission-
ary Fellowship. He is a physi-
cian with a keen interest in
community health and tribal
evangelism. With his wife,
Nancy, he recently visited a vil-
lage of animists and told them
the story of Jesus. They were
intrigued with Christ's teaching
about love and forgiveness,
deeply moved by his compas-


sionate ministry, stirred at the
mention of our Lord's death
and resurrection. Someone
asked Don, "When did this
happen? Ten or fifteen years
ago?" Don replied, "No, it took
place almost two thousand
years ago." Saddened, the man
asked, "What terrible thing
have we done, that God should
have kept this wonderful story
from us for so long?" -Robert J.
Morgan, Nelson's Complete
Book of Stories, Illustrations &
Quotes, (Nashville: Thomas
Nelson Publishers) 2000.
The place where the Lord
lay is a place of life. Christ's life
assures us of life for the body
and soul of man.
Pastor Wallace Hostetter of
Rochester, Michigan, went for a
haircut one day. His barber was
a young Muslim woman. In the
course of their conversation, he
told her he was a pastor, that he
believed in Jesus, and that later
in the day he was going to per-
form a funeral.
She replied, "Once I was
supposed to ctt a dead man's
hair. They were going to pay me
$150, but I wouldn't do it."
"Why not?" "I don't like to
touch the dead. I'm afraid
they'll sit up." "I know one who
did," said the pastor.
"Ugh! You're kidding." "No,
I'm not," he replied.
Then he told her about the
resurrection of Jesus Christ.
When his haircut was done,
she asked, "Are you going to
keep coming here?" "Yeah, I'll
come back." She said, "I'd like
to know more." -Robert J. Mor-
gan, Nelson's Complete Book
of Stories, Illustrations &
Quotes, (Nashville: Thomas
Nelson Publishers) 2000.
The place where the Lord
lay is a place of comfort and
hope. The angels told the
women to "Fear not ye." And
then he instructed them to "go
quickly, and tell his disciples
that he is risen from the dead."
One day a Chinese pastor visit-
ed an old man and began shar-
ing the gospel, but when the
pastor asked him if he wanted
to become a Christian, he said,
"No. Jesus gave Himself to me,
but I have nothing to give Him
in return for a gift like that."
."But He wants no gift except
yourself," said the pastor. It
tookawhile for the old man to
comprehend this. He kept ask- .,
ing, "How could He possibly
want an ill-smelling, rotten old
leper like me?" But finally one
day, he believed and received
Jesus as Savior.
The man quickly learned to
love the Word of God and he
began sharing Christ with fel-
low lepers, going from room to
room, until the disease pro-,
gressed to such a degree that he
could not walk or see.
As he lay dying, his one
regret \%as that he had done so
little for the Lord. He had
learned the gospel too late,
when he was hardly able to
move about. Looking up at his
pastor, he asked this question:
"When I reach Father's house,
will Jesus blame me for not get-
ting any more, or will He
remember I was just a rotten
old leper?" Then he added:, "I
only got fourteen." Fourteen
souls he had won to Jesus
Christ!
-Morgan, Robert J., From
This Verse, (Nashville: Thomas
Nelson Publishers) 2000,
c1998.

Okeechiohee. News


Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your
editor.
