Debit hold adds to purchases


It can happen
without your
knowing about it

Editor's Note: First in a series.
By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
Penny Chaisson got more
than she bargained for when she
swiped her debit card at a local
gas station at the end of May. And
she didn't find out about it until


later that night when she
checked her account online.
"I purchased gas at the Hess
station on U.S. 98 and S.R. 70. MyW
bill was $20.03 and I used my
Visa debit card. They billed a;
hold of $75. This froze my
account for 72 hours. This is poor
business practice and the bank
agrees with me on this. They"
need to change this practice,"
she said.


was told that it was their policy
and it would be all charged if she
bpunced a check. They would
not change anything, she said.
She went to her bank,
Regions Bank, and was told the
debit card puts a hold on an
amount of money and she is not
able to use that money while it's
being held. They said they did not
put on the hold, but that the ven-
dor did.


Furious, Mrs. Chaisson went Whenever debit cards are
back to the Hess station and used to purchase gasoline, the
asked why they held $7S-on a' merchant and the bank may put
$20.03 purchase. She said she a hold on a person's account for


up to $75. The hold should last
no longer than 72.hours, but in
some cases it can last longer.
Mrs. Chaisson kept checking
her account and said the $75-
hold did not clear until a week
had passed.
"They charge all those people
that amount of money every-
one who buys gas with a debit
card. That is a lot of money for'
them to be tying up," she said.
Not only was Mrs. Chaisson
irked that the hold was for so
much more than the amount of
her purchase, but she was also


angry there was no notice on the
pump that a hold would be put
on her debit purchase.
"Authorization holds are done
in.the big cities (she named West
Palm Beach), but they put a
notice on the pump and let peo-
ple know they are doing it," she
said.

retail marketing for the Amerada

Okeechobee News
There's good news for the
residents of Treasure Island who
ha\ e been complaining for se\ er-
al years about their vegetation-
laden and silt-clogged canals.
County Administrator George
Long announced on July 6 that,
all specifications ha\e been
approved and all permitting
issues resolved in the county's
project to cleanup the canals..He
said the county would soon
advertise for bids w-ith an Aug 16
deadline
We're actually breaking new\
ground," he said.
Mr. Long said this was the first
attempt to clean up the canals
since they were constructed and
they had to collect data since'
there was nothing to go on, and
the work was hindered by three
hurricanes.
It was two years ago that a
grant became available to clean
up the canals. Now it appears
that the grant soon might be put
to use.


By Cpl. Keith Stripling,
Special to the Okeechobee.
News
According to Okeechobee
County Sheriff Paul C. May, the
county has received 106 child
safety seats from the Florida
Department of Transportation
*(FDOT).
Sheriff May said it has been
determined by the National
Highway Traffic Safety Adminis-
tration that traffic crashes are the
leading cause of death for ages 3
to 33 in the United States. There-
fore, it is very important for all
occupants of a motor vehicle to
be restrained at all times while
the vehicle is in motion.
Because of this, the Sheriff's
Office Crime Prevention Unit
has implemented the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office
Child Passenger Safety Seat pro-
gram. The program will offer


Vegetation removal and
dredging will be done at the
intersections of canals and
extend about 100 feet into the
canals. The work will be done in
the center of the canals so that it
will not interfere with boathous-
es and docks.
As to the depth, Mr. Long said
the engineers and South Florida
Water Management District
i.SFWMD.i made a scientific
guess and agreed to a standard
depth, since no original plans
have been found. Because differ-
ent developers put in different
canals, they might have originally
been dug to different depths.
There is also the question of
canal ownership. Some property
lines go to the canal edge while
some extend to the middle of the
canal. However, Mr. Long did not
think this would be a problem
since all property owners would
probably want "their canals
cleaned.
The method of material
removal will be proposed by the
contractors. He was not sure
where the dredged material


child passenger safety seat
checks. The checks are free to
the public. Cost-effective safety
seats will also be available.
Because these seats have
been provided by FDOT on a
grant basis, there is an active
and binding contract between
the sheriff's office and FDOT
that states that the technician
should make a determination of
the cost of each seat issued. The
money collected from the seats
will be maintained in an account
at the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) to replenish
the stock of car seats and sup-
plies needed to perform the
installation.
A car seat check station will
be maintained at the Crime Pre-
vention Unit Office, 307 N.W.

would be placed. It had been
previously suggested that it be'
used for fill at the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center, but he
is not sure if it would be suitable
for fill. The material might have
to be stored temporarily, before
being moved to a permanent
location.
In June of 2004, Okeechobee
County Commissioners agreed
to accept a grant from SFWMD
for cleanup of canals along a 6-
mile stretch of Taylor Creek from
the L63 North Canal, south to
Lake Okeechobee.
The grant eventually totaled
$950,000 with the county provid-
ing $60,000 in-kind services.
The engineering firm of Craig
A. Smith was granted a contract
to gather data and develop a pre-
liminary engineering plan. The.
firm studied four representative
canals to determine the amount
of sediment in the canals and the
best methods of disposal.

the individual's bank. When the
card goes in, the customer choos-
es debit or credit and that signals
the credit card company if the
card is good.' Then it lets you
pump up to $75," he said.
Mr. Lawlor added that Hess
does not put on holds because
they have no information about
the customer.
"The gas company does not
make that decision, the bank
does," he said.
Jude Fischer, branch manager
of Regions Bank, said the bank
has no way to put a hold on a
debit card purchase. The transac-
tion starts with the vendor at the
point of sale.
"The bank does only three
things: issue cards, activate cards
and terminate cards," he said,
adding that the bank has no way
to put a transaction through.

Ties up funds
Putting an authorization hold
on funds greater than an amount
of purchase can cause a person to
overdraw their account, especial-
ly if they don't know about it. '
John Hall, in public relations
with the American Bankers Asso-
ciation in Washington, D.C., said
such a hold can cause an over-
draft situation. If a person doesn't
know a hold is on for a larger
amount than the purchase and
they use their debit card at several
other places, it could result in
overdrawing the account.
Mr. Hall said.the retailer estab-
lishes how much over the
amount of purchase the hold
should be and that the retailer
works with its own bank to
process the transaction.
"Their bank asks if they want
to have a.hold'put on,".he said. ,
Holds are usually only author.
ized for non-PIN-based transac-
tions. When the pin number is
entered, the exact amount of the:

transaction would come immedi-
ately out of the person's checking
account. .

Setting a hold
As for who initiates the hold,
the merchant points to the bank
and the bank points to the mer-
chant.
Jeff Lenard, with the National
Association of Convenience
Stores, said there is no reason a
convenience store would put on a
hold.
A visit to several other gas sta-
tions in town on June 16 found
that none of the gas stations visit-
ed were charging an authoriza-
tion hold.
Thomas Chacko, station man-
ager of the BP at 511 S. Parrott
Ave. said the whole system is run
by BP corporate and that no debit
cards are run at the pump. How-
ever, credit cards are used at the
pump, and a debit card used as a
credit card can be run at the
pump. If one uses a debit card,
;.they-'must,'go inside a nd. plug in.
their PIN number and the exact
amount of purchase is charged.
Mr. Chacko said they do not
put on holds for up to $50 or $75,


or any amount more than the
amount of purchase.
"Why should I do that? If you
hold more than the purchase, I
would think it would be. illegal,"
he said.
Renne Certain, manager of the
Handy/Citgo station at Charles
Harvey Highway and U.S. 441.
South, said they do not put on
authorization holds for more than
the amount. of purchase. Howev-
er, one thing that does happen on
debit card usage is a limit on the
amount of gasoline a person can
put on the card at one time.
"Master Card has a limit on the
amount of gas you can pump, say
$75, and for Visa it is $50. People
get mad about limits when they
need to pump more gas than that,
and the credit card company set
the limit. I tell them to run the
card through again or come
inside and pay to pump. It is strict-
ly a credit card company rule,"
she said.'
Theresa Chandler, assistant
vice-president of marketing at
Seacoast National Bank said that
Visa allows gas stations to pre-
authorize up to a $50 hold, and
Master Card allows up to a $75
hold for purchases because of the
high gas prices and increases, in
thefts (drive-offs).
Lisa Thomas, branch manager
of MidFlorida Federal Credit
Union, said they have not had
complaints from customers
about holds, but they have had
customers ask if a transaction has
a hold on it. She said some cus-
tomers have had holds, or pend-
ing.transactions, but they do not
complain that the hold is over the
amount of purchase. She said the
vendor initiates the hold.
"When a vendor puts on a
hold, they put the amount and
also the time it should be held -
for three days or four days, what-
ever they decide. They like to say
it's the bank doing it," she said.
Karen Bowers, branch manag-
er of Harbor Federal, said that the
vendor has to be the one putting
on the hold.

"They issue the transaction,"'
she said.
Other local, banks were called
but did not respond by press time.
Mr. Fischer' said he checked
with the Regions Bank headquar-
ters in Birmingham, Ala., to see if
there is a way to block authoriza-
tion holds from customers'
accounts put on by vendors. As of
press time, he said that since the
debit authorization hold does not
happen frequently, there isn't any-
thing in place to block it at the
bank. But the bank is looking into
it.
"We've alerted the proper peo-
ple at our main headquarters and
they are researching it. I can't say
how long it would take to find. an
answer, but it is being
researched," Mr. Fischer said.
Jay Hopkins, with Visa Interna-
tional, sent an e-mail statement
from-Visa that includes this state-
ment: "Visa cardholders can use
their cards in places where the
exact amount of a transaction
may not be known when the mer-
chant first requests .an authoriza-
tion for a purchase. ... Visa does
not issue cards and, thus, does
not place "holds" on cardholder
funds."
The statement said that some
card-issuing financial institutions
place a hold on funds to protect
themselves against the risk that
cardholders will spend more
money than they have in their
accounts. Banks must pay the
merchant for. the authorized
amount.
Visa added this guideline:
"Visa requires that card-issuing
financial institutions release all
holds within three business days
of the authorization request or
when the transaction clears,
whichever is earlier."
Mrs. Chaisson had a message
for the people: .'Don't.use .ouI

delivered his firm's report on the
canal cleanup survey.
The survey determined that
most of the sediment was at the
mouth of the canals. It recom-
mended mechanical harvesting of
aquatic matter and 'hydraulic
dredging.
The report estimated that the
13.3 miles of canals would yield
.148,700 cubic yards of sediment
which would require a little over
six months to haul away.
The cost to remove the sedi-
ment was estimated at $4,533,000.
The aquatic growth removal was'
estimated to cost $202,000. Total
estimated cost of the project was
$5,989,210.
At that meeting commissioners
voted to remove aquatic vegetation
from the canals and remove sedi-
ment buildup within 100 to 200
feet of the mouth of the canals.
Mr. Long said that they would
get as much cleanup as possible
done with the grant money.
The project still has a lot of
unknowns. Mr. Long said that once

Pursuit

assault on a law enforcement
officer, aggravated assault with a:
deadly weapon, two counts of
third-degree grand theft and
felony criminal mischief.
According to a report by
Deputy Timothy Higgins of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) he was originally
sent to help Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) Officer Jason God-
win who was in pursuit of a
Dodge pickup truck. The truck
was pulling a trailer loaded with
two, four-wheel All Terrain Vehi-
cles' (ATVs).
It was later learned that the
.truck was reported as being
stolen in Lake County. The trailer
and ATVs had been reported as
stolen in Highlands County.
Officer Godwin's report states
that he received a call around
3:45 p.m. Tuesday from a local
ranch owner. The rancher told
the officer that a Dodge pickup
had gained entrance to his prop-
erty by crashing through two cat-
tle gates. Then, as the rancher
attempted to make contact with
the driver of the truck, the driver
later determined to be Hast-
ings -- tried to run the rancher
off the road.
The FWC officer found the
vehicle in the parking lot ,of a
business near the intersection of
U.S. 98 and S.R. 70 W. As the offi-
cer drove into the parking lot,
Hastings reportedly began driv-
ing directly at Officer Godwin
and forced the officer to take eva-
sive action to avoid a collision.
As the truck left the parking
lot it turned east on S.R. 70, with


Officer Godwin in pursuit. How-
ever, Officer Godwin stopped
chasing the truck at the intersec-
tion of U.S. 441 and S.R. 70 due
to other vehicles and innocent
people in the area.
Once he had cleared the inter-
section, he caught up to the pick-
up and continued his pursuit.
That chase continued on S.R. 70
until they reached the intersec-
tion of S.R. 710 where Hastings
reportedly began traveling south
for an estimated distance of two
-miles, the 'officer wrote in his
report.
At that point, Hastings report-
edly turned onto an access road
that led to the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center. When
Hastings reached the Agri-Civic
Center, he allegedly crashed
through both gates and entered
the property.
Deputy Higgins estimated the
value of the gates to be at $6,500.
In his report he said both gates
were destroyed.
The FWC officer was still in
pursuit of the piCkup, which con-
tinued driving through the prop-
erty at the county facility. At one
point, wrote the deputy, Hastings
hit a ditch and culvert so hard
that the truck became airborne
and a large tool box was thrown
from the bed of the pickup.
The chase ended when Hast-
ings tried to veer off the access
road and became stuck in a
ditch, said Deputy Higgins.
Hastings and Cole both got
out of the truck and tried to
unhitch the trailer, said the
deputy's report. At this point,
both Deputy Higgins and Officer
Godwin approached the truck
and placed Hastings and Cole
under arrest.

More stringent air emission

standards to be implemented


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP) today received
approval from the Environmental
Regulation Commission to imple-
ment more stringent air emission
standards that will improve Flori-
da's air quality. The new standards
will help the state meet the require-
ments of the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency's (EPA) Clean
Air Interstate Rule (CAIR) and
Clean Air Mercury Rule I CAMR.i.
"These regulations will ensure
that Florida continues to meet all
national air quality standards by
reducing harmful emissions," said
DEP Deputy Secretary for Regula-
tory Programs and Energy Mike
Sole. "By continuing to update
technology at power plants and
investing in alternative energy, we
can ensure that future generations
of Floridians enjoy cleaner air and
an improved quality of life."
CAIR addresses pollution that
crosses state lines and according to
the EPA ill achieve the largest
reduction in air pollution in more-
than a decade. Florida is one of 28
states introducing the new federal
emission standard, which must be
submitted to the EPA this fall.
CAMR is the first-ever federal rule
to permanently reduce mercury
emissions from coal-fired power
plants nationwide.
As part of CAIR, Florida's power
plants will be required to reduce
emissions of nitrogen oxides and
sulfur dioxide, which contribute to,
the formation of fine particles and
ground-level ozone. CAMR will
build on CAIR regulations to signifi-


cantly reduce mercury emissions
from coal-fired power plants.
Going beyond federal require-
ments, Florida's plan for imple-
menting CAMRwill result in greater
mercury reductions than those
required by the EPA.
In the initial phase of the CAIR
program, sulfur dioxide emissions
will be reduced by approximately
'55 percent, an estimated 218,000
tons per year, and nitrogen oxides
emissions will be reduced by
approximately 75 percent, an esti-
mated 69,000 tons per year. Mer-
cury emissions from coal-fired
power plants will be reduced by
approximately 45 percent, an esti-
mated 1,030 pounds per year. If
approved by EPA, the new regula-
tions will go into effect by 2010.
Florida was one of the first
states to achieve major emission
reductions from power plants
through the federal Clean Air Act.
More than 20,000 megawatts of
clean electrical power generating
capacity has been added or
approved since 1998 enough to
continually power more than four,
million homes. Under the leader-
ship of Governor Jeb Bush, the
State has worked with utilities to
.reduce emissions from all Florida
power plants, including those that
burn coal. From 1999 through
2004, sulfur dioxide emissions
were reduced by approximately
350,000 tons and nitrogen oxides
emissions were reduced by 40,000
tons.

da's CAIR and CAMR rules, visit

Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
THANKS: Thank you to the Kiwanis club for the bus that took the
young people to Camp Landing for the youth leadership camp in
Starke last Wnonth to be trained for the substance abuse coalition.
CHECK'EM OUT: Before you hire a handyman, check them out -
make sure they have a handyman license, occupational license. Also
check with building and zoning and local law enforcement to make
sure they have not been arrested for fraud or theft. My mother has
been defrauded twice and it was from a handyman.

TRUCKS: You think we can get any more tractor-trailer trucks in this
little city. They are beginning to be a real nuisance. I know they are
what some people refer to as a necessary evil. I wish we could get a
truck route in the infrastructure of the county.

I WONDER: After watching the story about Washington crossing
the Delaware and surprising the division of the British army, I wonder if
John Kerry, Teddy Kennedy and Cindy Sheehan would have been
around that they would have demanded that Washington cross the
Mississippi.

TAYLOR CREEK: Why can't the South Florida Water Management
District leave the locks closed so that when it rains the water can stay in
the canals on Taylor Creek? Our boats are in the mud, we cannot take
them out ariymore. It is a terrible time and I don't know what is going
on in the community but nobody cares about the boater anymore.
(Editor's Note: We spoke with an official with the South Florida Water
Management District and were told that even if the locks were closed,
it wouldn't really help the water level in Taylor Creek. As is normal
with this time of year, the water level will continue to drop through
transuaporation due to the high temperatures and long periods of
bright sunlight. Even though we are getting some rain, it is not
enough to raise the water level.)

Glades County Commission lifts ban


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Special to Okeechobee News
GLADES COUNTY The
Glades County Commission
. recently lifted its ban on burning
- a ban that strongly discour-
aged all forms of outdoor burn-
ing throughout the county.
The ban, imposed by the
.county commission by resolu-
tion several months ago, was in
direct response to the spread of
brush fires in the region earlier
this year. The goal was to mini-
rnize, the possibility of a fire
spreading in the region.

of Corrections (DOC).
Todd Cox, 23, Moore Haven,

against them dropped is welcome to
inform this newspaper. The information

"Fires are dangerous," said
Mr. Taylor. "You can throw a cig-
arette and it'can pick up and
burn. If the fire department
found you had an illegal fire,
you'll get a chance to answer to
someone."
The fire department battled
several fires in Paimdale and'
Muse, among other places, .dur-
ing the height of the brush fires
in Florida.
After recent rainy events in
Glades County, the commission
decided it was time to lift the
ban, agreeing that the potential
for fires was greatly diminished.

der, you can't control it any-
more," said Wendell Taylor,
County Manager of the dry grass
areas in the county.
With reports of rampant
brush fires-in large regions of
South Florida including fires
that broke out in areas of the
county itself the commission
decided to support the resolu-
tion banning outdoor burning.
While not strictly enforced
through fines, the resolution,
according to Mr.Taylor, neverthe-
less encouraged residents in the
county to refrain from starting
fires outside their homes.


water plant
ners say the cost is due mainly to
the ever-increasing cost of con-
struction material and other gener-
al expenses.
While some modifications to
the individual parts of the plant
have been made to control the
cost somewhat where perhaps
one item was downsized some
aspects of the plant remain .out of
the county's control.
To Mayor Sasser, though, the
higher cost is something to worry
about.
Of the companies involved in
the construction of the facility, the
mayor said, "They seem to think
they have an open P.O."
He promised to look into the
cost of the plant.
In the meantime, the city hopes
that the mayor's visit to Washing-
ton produces tangible results.
While there, the mayor said he .
was asked whether he wanted to
list the water plant as his city's pri-
ority issue, even over the present
situation with the dike in danger of
failing.
Mr. Sasser said yes.
"The dike might kill us," he
said, "the water already is."

on burning
The vote was unanimous last
week during the commission
meeting..
"Because the rain has come,
things are wetter now," said Mr.
Taylor.
Even with the lifting of the
ban, the county urges residents
to practice safety when starting
outdoor fires. The county's fire
department asks residents to
make sure that they follow prop-
er steps before starting a fire,
including: keeping a water hose
nearby, never leaving a fire unat-
tended, and making sure that all
fires are completely out before
leaving the area.

The Okeechobee National

struck out two others to bring
Okeechobee to the plate.
Tyler Finney singled and was
advanced to second by a sacrifice
