Agassi readies
for Wimbledon
WIMBLEDON (AP) -The
groundskeepers were waiting
to take down the net for the
night by the time Andre Agassi.,
finished his practice session
Friday at Wimbledon.
He hit for more than two
hours with Fernando Gonza-
lez, relishing his return to the
All England Club but strug-
gling to play catch-up.
Hampered by chronic back
trouble, the 36-year-old Agassi
has played only eight matches
this year, and just one since
mid-March -a loss in straight
sets to Tim Henman last week
at Queen's Club.
On Tuesday, he'll give it
another trI. playing his first
S match at \Virnbledon since
2003. '. 1 ..- .....
"The body hasn't been
right for awhile now," he said.
"It's hard to have my expecta-
tions too high. At the same
.time, if I can just get a match
or two under my belt, I'm defi-
nitely hoping to be in position
to cause some problems for
some of the big boys."
It's strange to hear Agassi
speak of himself as an under- /
dog, but he's seeded 25th, and<
oddsmakers list his champi-
onship chances at 75-1 or
worse. The draw Friday paired
him in the first round against
Boris Pashanski, ranked 69th
and making his Wimbledon
debut.

By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News

(he was a hemophiliac) and
was excluded from school.

Commissioners,

code board hold


workshop meeting


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It appears that the Okee-
chobee County Code Enforce-
ment Board is now receiving
more respect from code viola-
tors.
That was the consensus at
a workshop held Thursday
evening, June 22, between the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners, code
enforcement officials and
code enforcement board


members. A wide range of
topics was discussed.
At regular intervals, com-
missioners hold workshops
with the various county
boards to discuss policies and
procedures of that particular
board. Since this was a work-
shop, no official action could
be taken.
Deputy County Administra-
tor Jim Threewits stated that

Horses recovering thanks to caring people


By MaryAnn Morris
Special to Okeechobee News
Fourteen horses found starv-
ing in a field in northeastern
Okeechobee County are improv-
ing under the ownership and
care of Okeechobee County Ani-
mal Control, thanks to the gen-
erosity of businesses and individ-
uals.
"The horses are gaining
weight and look so much happi-
er," said Claire Hudson, Animal
Control Officer II. "Dr. Bryant
pulled Coggins on them."
"All the Coggins tests were
clear," said Paul Bryant, a local
veterinarian. "What they will
continue to need is good nutri-
tion and foot care."
An initial visit to the horses
showed badly neglected hoofs
that were grown out and broken
off.


There has been a tremendous
response from Okeechobee peo-
ple to the plight of the horses.
"People want to help," said
Officer Hudson. "It's been won-
derful."
"Seminole Feed has, via
Judith Streiber from Equine Res-
-cue and Adoption in Martin
County, donated fly masks,
wormer, mineral blocks and
feed. Judith brought the mineral
blocks over to us. They have
donated feed, too. Double M
Tack and Feed here in Okee-
chobee gave us a $500 gift certifi-
cate to get whatever we need for
the horses."
"Yes, we brought them basic
supplies: mineral block, SWAT
and feed," said Ms. Streiber, man-
ager of the horse adoption
agency. "We are trying to raise
more funds so they can get the
feed and care they so desperately


need."
"I'd say these horses are prob-
ably Thoroughbreds," said Dr.
Bryant. "Some are tattooed.
Their pedigrees could be traced.
by those numbers. They're all
nice horses; they just haven't had
any attention in a long time.
Some that were born in that field
just don't know anything. No one
has taught them yet."
Hopefully, some local farriers
will help.
"I want to thank the commu-
nity for all their help," said Officer
Hudson. "So many people have
called, so many have helped."
Eventually, the horses will be
sold at auction. Information
about the coming auction will be
published in the Okeechobee
News.
Okeechobee Animal Control
can be contacted at (863)357-
3225.


INI/MaryAnn Morris
Fourteen badly starved and neglected horses found in north-
eastern Okeechobee County are making progress. This foal
was born to a mare bred there. The chestnut horse In front
always stays close to the mare and foal as their protector.

Test

Continued From Page 1
After his death, federal legislation
was named after him and funding
came about that allowed for the
community program.
Ms. Torres has a message for
the community" "Come and get
tested."
She said people may also get
brief counseling while the test is
running, or they can opt out of the
counseling. During counseling,
Ms. Torres will talk about safe sex
practices and risk factors for other
sexually transmitted diseases.
It takes only 20 minutes to get
results.
The test only screens for the
HIV antibody, and a person will
get a result of either negative or
indeterminate. Indeterminate
simply means the test cannot
determine if HIV is present. It just
indicates whether one needs fur-
ther testing. It takes about a week
to get results from additional test-
ing.
FCHC runs about 50 HIV.tests
a month. The testing is always
free, and people can go in any-
time. FCHC is a private, non-prof-
it, federally qualified health cen-
ter. While they could not say how
many people they treat. for
HIV/AIDS, they said they do fol-
low those who are positive for
HIV and those who have contract-
ed AIDS (autoimmune deficiency
disease).
A report from the Florida
Department of Health revealed
that cumulatively through 2002, a
total of 90,438 AIDS cases had
been reported in Florida. Florida
ranks third in the nation in the
number of AIDS cases. Florida
reported its first AIDS case in
1981. For more information, visit
the web atwww.doh.state.fl.us..
People can be tested as young
as age- 13 and well into their
advanced years. Ms. Torres rec-
ommends that all people have a
test.

who had a hip replacement sur-
gery, was not healing she was-
n't getting any better. After a long
time, she was eventually found to
be HIV positive. She had had a
blood transfusion years prior and
it was determined that was how
she contracted it," Ms. Torres said.
Having started out in Los
Angeles as a gay person's, disease,
now heterosexual contact is con-
sidered the highest route for con-
tracting HIV, according to Leah
Suarez, lead care coordinator for
Healthy Start.
'Mrs. Suarez said they have not
seen an increase in the number of
patients who test positive for HIV.
"if people test positive, we
want them to get the help they
need. We want them to know
about practicing safe sex and liv-
ing a healthy lifestyle," she said.
Once a person has been in
contact with HIV, according to
Mrs. Suarez, they can get other
opportunistic infections.
"The immune system is weak-
ened," she said.
Both women broke through
some stereotypes.
"You can't look at someone
and tell if they are HIV positive,"
Mrs. Suarez said. "That is a mis-
conception. And not just poverty-
level people are HIV positive. It
can affect everybody."
A brochure titled "Get the
facts. Know the truth" is available
at the clinic and says that persons
who have been infected with a
sexually transmitted disease in
the past have a greater chance of
contracting HIV because they are
more likely to engage in risky
behavior.
Through the Healthy Start pro-
gram, Mrs. Suarez tracks the teen
pregnancy rate in Okeechobee.
She said the rate is extremely
high.
"Last year, Okeechobee Coun-
ty was the third highest in the
state for teen pregnancies," she
said. "Getting teens tested for HIV
is very important.
On the plus side, Okeechobee
County is very low statistically for
repeat pregnancies.

BIG CYPRESS A Glades
County couple was arrested Fri-
day in connection with the bur-
glary of home on Marshall Field
Road.
Michael Alan Smith and his
wife Rachael Smith were both
booked into the Glades County
Jail on charges of burglary and
grand theft. Bond was set at
$50,000 each.


Meeting

ment officers on the job sounds
like the right answer. However,
he said that would result in more
cases being produced than the
code enforcement board could
handle.
Mr. Threewits said the
process takes longer than most
people think because of the
legalities.
County attorney Laura McCall
spoke about the proposal under
consideration of hiring a special
magistrate to hear cases instead
of a code board. She added that
a lot of cases are resolved before
they go before the code enforce-
ment board.
Commissioner Gene Woods
noted that a special magistrate
could hear 25 cases in an hour
and could conduct hearings
twice a month if necessary.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
noted that if someone goes
before a special magistrate and
doesn't pay the fine, they will be
held in contempt of court. He
said there must be punishment
for not paying a fine and not just
a threat.
Mr. Threewits said code
enforcement was :trying to
streamline the paperwork by
relying more on computers. He
said such a process would short-
en the time, between when a
citation is written and the hear-
ing.
He went on to say he was try-
ing to get someone from Indian
River Community College
(IRCC) to help install such a sys-
tem. He noted that once soft-
ware is purchased it takes four
or five months to work out the
bugs. Such a system would
allow code enforcement officers
to stay in the field longer.
With the present .computer
system, code enforcement offi-
cers have to retype a lot of data
that is available in other systems.
Commissioner Clif Betts stat-
ed that the Workforce Develop-
ment Board might provide com-
puter assistance.
Mr. Threewits noted that the
comments and attitudes of peo-
ple coming to code enforcement
board meetings have changed.
Mrs; McCall noted that previ-
ously most people who were
cited did not take the code
enforcement board seriously
enough to come to the board
meeting. However, they now
show up at board meetings and
take the proceedings seriously.
Code enforcement board
member Epifanio Juarez said the
code enforcement board was
not a very popular board. He
said during his three years on the
board, it has gotten harder on
offenders.
Code enforcement board
member Jude Fischer also noted


According to a press release
from the Glades County Sheriff's
Office, the couple allegedly
broke into the home and took
approximately $3,000. The
*release states that several family
members of the victim reported-
ly saw Michael Smith in the area
of the victim's home around the
time of the alleged burglary.


that he had seen changes. At first
people took it as -a joke, he said,
now people have an understand-
ing that things have changed. He
noted that most cases, now come
into compliance or have very lit-
tle remaining to do to bring them
into compliance when they
come, before the board..,
Mrs. McCall noted that people
often ask for a reduction in fine
when they have a buyer for the
property. She said the fine would
accrue until the property is in
compliance. After it is in compli-
ance, they can ask for a reduc-
tion.
Once a property has come
into compliance the fine stops. If
the violation reoccurs, the
process must be restarted.
Mr. Threewits noted that
repeat offenders go before the
board quicker.
Code enforcement officer
Beth Albert noted that some vio-
lators can't read and some are
not able to comprehend their sit-
uation. She noted that the elderly
and the poor are not able to
clear up code violations and told
of the case of one elderly lady
who was referred to senior serv-
ices.
She added that other counties
have programs that are partly
county funded; and- partly volun-
teer to help hardship cases.
County Commission chair-
man John Abney' requested
information on that particular
type of program so that the
county could consider imple-
menting such a program.
Commissioner Posey suggest-
ed that if there were a health or
safety violation, the county
would clean up the property and
put a lien on it.
Commissioner Betts suggest-
ed that when code enforcement
officers learn of violations by the
elderly they try to get help them
rather than write a citation.
Commissioner Posey noted
that judgment calls should be
made in such cases. The board
knows whether it is hardship or
not, he said. But he added that
there should be no compassion
for people who are taking advan-
tage of the system.
Mr. Threewits noted that if
there were criteria for hardship,
everyone would try to find a way
to meet the criteria.
: Commissioner Posey suggest-
-ied using county. prisoners to
cleanup and maintain hardship
cases.
Code Enforcement Officer
Albert noted that there are only
three code enforcement officers
to cover 771 square miles in the
county, and thai' those officers
have no clerical staff.
It was decided that code
enforcement board members
would have a workshop before
one of their meetings in order to
discuss policies and procedures.

Balancing the scales
Steve Nelson (right), owner of Okeechobee Discount
Drugs, donates a $2,000 set of scales to the Okeechobee
Police Department on Wednesday, June 21 for weighing
confiscated drugs. Police Chief Denny Davis gladly
accepts. Mr. Nelson has been helping the police depart-
ment since his arrival from New York in 1975 and says he
will always help the city's police officers. He recently
donated $400 to help outfit a newly used patrol car
received by the Okeechobee Citizens Patrol with a top-

4 OPINION


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http/A/www.newszapforums
.com/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our Speak
Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or send-
ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
RR CROSSING: Thank you to the Okeechobee News, to the editor
and Mr. Gawda for arranging to contact the county and CSX on
behalf of the residents who use the railroad crossing that was in
such bad repair. Thank you so very much. The 15-A railroad cross-
ing has been repaired and it is a breeze to go over. We thank you all,
Mr. Threewits, the county and the editor of the Okeechobee News
and Mr. Gawda. All of the residents appreciate your good work.

DRUG BUST: About all these drug people that have been arrested
30 times and are still out. Like you said, the police and sheriff's
department and the system lets them go. Have you ever thought
about the attorney general or the judges? They might be on drugs
themselves and they don't want to get caught. Let's check them out
- let's get new ones in the office that will do something about it.
(Editor's Note: As a note of clarification, neither the police depart-
ment nor sheriff's office have the authority to 'let someone go'
unless ordered to do so.)

DRUGS: This is about the drug bust. That is fine with the cocaine,
but there are a lot of meth labs in this town that need to be raided
and stopped too. I am sure they have a sense of where they are.
Keep it up, don't stop. Clean the town up it needs it badly.

0 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:







t 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.

Reflections- from the Pulpit


By Rev. Jim Hudson
Pastor, His House Fellowship
Church of the Nazarene
Can you believe it, we are
already half way through the
year 2006? With just a snap of
the finger, we will be starting
2007. When I was a child, I
remember people telling me that
when you get older, your days
will go by quicker. Today, not
only do I fully understand that
saying, but I have experienced it!
My parents told me that as I
got older, things would not
always go the way I wanted.
They told me that life was not a
rose garden. But they forgot to
tell me about all of the thorns. I
heard a man say, "If I knew that I
was going to live this long, I
would have taken better care of
myself". There have been days
when it seemed that I was all
alone, and that nobody cared.
There have been days when it
seems that the work had just
been pulled out from under me.
Times when I have prayed and.
prayed and seemingly, no
answer came. There have been
days when Satan has taken me
back in my memory to remind
me of my sinful past. Over and
over again, I have tried to put
things together and make things
work in my own strength. I
thought, "I'm educated, I have
plenty of experience, I've been
around the block more than
once and I know many people of
influence and if I just work hard,
I can make things'happen."
I received an e-mail that sim-'
ply titled "HANDS!" The writer of
the e-mail said, "A basketball in

my hands is worth about $19.00,
but a basketball in Michael Jor-
don's hands is worth about $33
million. You see, it depends
whose hands it's in. A rod in my
hands will keep away wild ani-
mals, but a rod in Moses' hands
will part the mighty Red Sea. You
see, it depends whose hands its'
in. Two fish and five loaves of
bread in God's hands will feed
thousand. You see, it depends
whose hands it's in. Nails in my
hands might produce a bird-
house, but nails in Jesus Christ's
hands will produce salvation for
the entire world. You see, it
depends whose hands it's in."


As you can see, it does
depend on whose hands its' in. If
you are holding on to things for
yourself trying to make things
happen on your own, it will
never work correctly.
God is in control, He wants to
handle all of the stuff of life for
you, He has or He will forgive
your past, His power is unlimit-

ure. Don't delay, place every-
thing into His hands and allow
Him to really be in control.

the badlands. (Isaiah 42:lb-3a;
18,19 The Message)
Today there will be new prob-
lems, new difficulties and new
situations to face and the ques-
tion is how will you handle
them: Will you try to carry them,
try to work them out on your
own or will you place each day
into God's hands. He can and
will work them out for us, if we
will only allow Him to do so. Put
all of your life with its cares and
concerns into God's hands, you
see, it really does depend whose
hands it's in!!!
