Mother, son in home of their own


Hurricanes forced
them to live
in FEMA trailer
By Audrey Blackwell
Okeechobee News
For someone who spent nearK
two years living in a FEMA trailer,
nothing can top having a new
1,500 square foot cement block
home to live in day after day.
For Julie Wazinek, it opens a
new chapter in her life. The 2004
hurricanes wiped out everything
she owned: house, car, belong-
ings.
"Moving in was almost like put-
ting an end to everything I'd been
through. It was very stressful lIing
in a FEMA trailer for almost two
years," she said.
Ms. Wazinek and her son Wylie
moved into their new home on
June 29. She expressed gratitude
to Rebuilding "Okeechobee After
Disaster kR.O.A.D.) for their help
after the hurricanes, and to
"Home Again" (a Florida Housing

assistance program) and the Vol-
unteer Florida Foundation for the
funds to rebuild their lives.
The total cost of the home, with
landscaping and a Jacuzzi bathtub
included, was $135,000. Volunteer
Florida funded $75,000 of that
amount, HOME Again funded
$50,000, about $8,000 came from
FEMA funds, and some from other
agencies.
Ms. Wazinek signed an agree-
ment with Volunteer Florida and
HOME Again and had to meet
income guidelines. If she stays in
the home for 15 years, she will not
have to pay back the funds granted
by Volunteer Florida. She must stay,
in the home for her lifetime in
order to not have to repay the
Home Again loan that operates like
a grant.
According to Ian Smith, Florida
Housing representative, Home
Again funds are considered a loan
and may be repaid at zero percent
as a second mortgage if the person
ever sells it.
"The longer a .person stays in
the home, the less they will have to
repay," he said.
FEMA funds helped to replace
clothing and furniture -that was
destroyed in the hurricanes and
included a 52-inch projection tele-
vision, three bedroom sets, and liv-
ing room furniture. According to
'Ms. Wazinek, these, items 'were
purchased from Rodney's Auction,
Goodwill, or yard sales.
Construction on the home start-
ed in early January and it was fin-
ished six months later.
"I think I'm blessed, all the way
around," she said.
Ms. Wazinek worked closely in
planning the layout of the new
house with Okeechobee architect
Mark McCree, and said she is grate-
ful to him, builder Neal Lorig, and
the Okeechobee County building
department who were "so helpful


withus, and still are," she said.

Personal tragedy
According to an account
offered by Jim Vensel of Recover-
ing Okeechobee After Disaster
(R.OA.D.), Ms. Wazinek, who was
unemployed at the time of the 2004
hurricanes, and Wiley volunteered
at the Emergency Operations Cen-
ter answering calls for help frpm
citizens in need, sometimes all
through the night.
While she was volunteering on
her own one night, pieces of the
roof from the state attorney's office
fell onto her car, damaging it. A
friend drove her home where she
discovered that her singlewide
mobile home (1,500 square foot
including additions), was gone,
along with all of her belongings.
She had no insurance.
Ms. Wazinek applied to Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) for a temporary travel trail-
er in which to live. For several
weeks, she and Wiley lived in a 12-
by-12 wood shed until the trailer
arrived.
,Meanwhile, she was offered a
position with the Unmet Needs of
Okeechobee Organization, and
she gladly worked to help others
get their lives back in order. Unmet
Needs eventually phased into
another unnamed group started by
a group of local ministers and
eventually became -known as'
R.O.A.D., a 50t-(C)3 not-for-profit
organization assisting families with
home repair and rebuilding.
Today, Ms. Wazinek serves as
case manager supervisor for
R.O.A.D. and is still helping people
rebuild their lives'through the pro-
gram.

CBS vs. mobile home
Ms. Wazinek qualified for help
from two separate agencies Vol-
' unteer Florida Foundation and
HOME Again based on income
guidelines. She had no insurance
and needed housing replacement.


According to Frank Irby, chair-
man of the R.O.A.D. board of direc-
tors, the board analyzed Ms.
Wazinek's needs and saw she met
criteria established by Okeechobee
County Government for adminis-
teiing Volunteer Florida funds. The
criteria include the following:
home damaged by a hurri-
cane;
applied for FEMA help and
has a FEMA registration number;
and,
report monies received from
insurance and other sources and
whatwas done with it.
R.O.A.D. listed a combination
of factors to serve as fund alloca-
tion criteria from other assistance
groups, such as ENCOR of United
Methodist Church and the Okee-
chobee County Government hous-
ing grant program.
Mr. Irby said the county did not
want to replace a mobile home
with another mobile home, but
rather with something that would
appreciate in value and be more
permanent. This was also the pref-.
erence of Volunteer Florida, he
said.
"In. our opinion, we would
replace mobile homes with regular
houses. And we went one step fur-
ther with a R.O.A.D. board stipula-
tion, that. anything we requested
would have a lien on the house. It
is 15 years for Volunteer Florida
funds. .If the house is sold before
that time, the money would be
ours to use to help other people,"
Mr. Irby said. ,

Funding
Ms. Wazinek qualified for assis-
tance from two major sources: Vol-
unteer Florida and HOME Again,
based on her income status.
Liza McFaddes, president of the
Volunteer Florida Foundation, said
their funds are allocated on a need-
based formula that-includes esti-
mated damages from FEMA and
other indicators
Volunteer Florida funds are pri-
vate donations in the program that


was set up by Governor Jeb Bush
to help with hurricane recovery.
The funds are allocated to a county,
and local unmet needs committees
across the state follow a formula
for allocating them to individuals.
Those committees submit a plan.
that includes the process they will
follow to analyze each situation.
"We rely on the local boards to
use good judgment on making
allocations. We do not want to
decide for counties at the state
level. They have all the players with
all information, so there is no dou-
ble dipping. That is the idea behind
the case management structure,"
Ms. McFaddes said.
According to Ms. McFaddes,
local case managers should make,
sure they have analyzed what other
funds people are eligible for and.
are used and "use our funds" as the
last resort.
"We allocate private funds," she
said.
She added that Volunteer Flori-
da rebuilt homes in the Pensacola
area after Hurricane Ivan went
through there and $55,000 per
home was the ballpark figure allo-
cated.
When it appears that more than
one large funding source is being
used, Volunteer Florida can go to
the local board for more informa-
tion.
Linda Rucks manages the hous-
ing grant program for Okeechobee
County Government, andd a local
HOME.Again loan program. The'
count\ applied for the program
through the Florida Housing.
Finance Corporation and recipi-
ents apply for assistance through
the county. (A second HOME Again
program is operated at Okee-
chobee Non-Profit Housing, Inc.)
:,Criteria for assistance from
HOME Again at the county include
the applicant's income, household
size, and maximum value of the
propertywhei coinpleted.
"We try to stay in the boundary
of like size for like size," Ms. Rucks
said.

Bronson presents awards



to agriscience teachers


ORLANDO Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson today presented
awards to four Florida educa-
tors for their exceptional con-
tributions to the Florida Agri-
science Leadership Program.
The four agriscience teach-
ers Robert Philpot and
Chris Wilder, both of Williston
High School; Ed Dillard of
Pasco High School in Dade
City; and Jodi Geiger of Pine
Ridge High School in Deltona
- received Outstanding
Alumni Awards during a cere-
mony hosted by Florida Asso-
ciation of Agriculture Educa-
tors (FAAE), which was held
during the annual conference
of the Florida Association of
Career and Technical Educa-
tion (FACTE).
"These alumni of the Agri-
science Leadership Program
have taken an active role in the
improvement of their profes-
sion," Bronson said. "I am
pleased to honor them for
their hard work and dedica-
tion."
The Agriscience Leadership
Program was developed in
2002 by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services, the Florida
Department of Education, and
the state's agriculture industry.
In addition to helping agri-
science teachers and adminis-
trators refine their leadership
capabilities, the program
assists them in improving their
agriscience programs to pro-
vide quality agricultural educa-
tion for students and expand
their curriculum to include all
components of agriculture.
"Many of Florida's agri-
science teachers leave the
classroom to work in business
and industry, ultimately leav-,
ing Florida with a constant
shortage of instructors in this
field of study," Bronson said.
"This program is intended to
keep quality teachers in the
schools, as well as encourage
more students to take agri-
science courses."
The participants travel six
times throughout the year to
various areas of the state,
including Tallahassee %\here
they spend four days learning
about the various programs
within the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices. The participants return
to the state capital in March


during the legislative session
to concentrate on the various
functions of government. Par-
ticipants also travel to the Pan-
handle, Central Florida and
South Florida where they get a
first-hand look at various seg-
ments of the state's diverse
agricultural industry. Partici-
pants must have at least three
years of experience as teach-
ers or administrators and be
nominated by their district
superintendent. Nominees'
applications are reviewed by a
selection committee, which
chooses participants based on
their application information
and essay answers.

Comments will be published in the newspaper ap -
RESPONSE TO LETTER, Who are you to dictatV if I should b gay or
have an abortion? It's my life. You have no business telling me how to
live it. If I get pregnant are you going to financially support my child? If I
fall in love with someone of the same sex, should I ignore my feelings
and not live a happy life to please you? Not. If x ou don't believe in abor-
tion, don't get one. If you don't love a man, don't become g Li\e
your life and don't worry about how others live feirs. And 'd ke to
know how many unwanted kids you have abort You ,talk
the talk, let's see you walk it. There will always be t ove..pOur
country has much bigger issues to worry ab
make a difference instead of trying to divide us .

CHRISTIANS: Regarding the Speak Out ir4ifve paper r
about being Christian. It says if you don't believe in gay nrti es or
abortions you are not Christian, you have to conform. This person that
wrote this, there is nothing about the Taliban or nothing aboot con-
forming. You need to read the Bible, understand it, and live it. Tils slulf
is definitely against God's Word to be either one of these things Thank
you.

FIX THE SIGNS: I have noticed that there are several signs bound
.town that have not been repaired following the hn*taines. I w won-
dering if the city has any type of law that puts a ffli on damages not
repaired in a timely matter. It seems like some of these repairs should
have been done by now.

BIBLE: For the person that compared Christians to the Taliban over
gay marriage and abortion. First of all, we go by the Bible, God's laws,
God's commandments, "thou shall not kill Secondly, the Taliban dn
kill so they are totally different from Christians. Christians believe in
peaceful resolutions and trying to stop something that is sinful. Abor-
tions and gay marriages are sinful. They are both in the Bible, and we
believe in the Bible, so if you have a problem %with that, ma\be you
should pick one up and start reading.

NATURE'S LAW: This is a call on the person comparing Christians
to conformity, I just would like to say that even if \ou don't belie% e in a
God who presides over our creation and our daily\ lives, you must con-
sider nature and in nature animals don't abort their babies In nature
an animal doesn't become gay with another animal, so for sake of the
argument, it goes against natures laws as well as God's laws. Abor-
tions are wrong, gay marriages are \\Tong. These people can change,
they can change, and all they have to do is have faith, pray on it and
change. .. . ._

City approves handing police services to PBSO


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Special to Okeechobee News
BELLE GLADE The Belle
Glade City Commission decided by
majority vote Monday to approve
the final contract to assign the city's
law enforcement services to the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office

the current police department.
The commission made minor
changes to the contract earlier this
week at a special meeting and
expected the sheriff's office to
assume law enforcement services
of the Belle Glade area yesterday at
6a.m.
The move marks the end of a
back-and-forth discussion on 'the
issue of police services, with resi-
dents and commissioners debating
the benefits and drawbacks of the
agreement. It also marks the last of
the police departments in the
Glades area to be absorbed by the
county agency, if only contractually.
Minutes after the meeting
began Monday, Commissioner
Mary Kendall asked the commis-
sion to consider postponing the
meeting so that Commissioner'
Gwen Asia-Williams, who was not
present at the meeting due to a pre-
vious engagement, could vote.
The commission rejected the
motion, offering a motion of their
own to keep residents from com-
menting on the subject for the
duration of the meeting.
While the city attorney read the
terms in the contract, Commission-
er Kendall requested several minor
changes to the language in various
sections of the contract. The com-
mission then voted 3-to-I to
approve the final contract.


Commissioner Kendall raised
concerns of hers that the vote was
fixed, and that commissioners may
have met behind closed doors
before the final decision was made.
She said that something sug-
gested to her, "That they (commis-
sioners) have already gotten
together and decided they are
going to accept this contract. That
causes me great concern."
She criticized the commission
for moving forward, the contract for
seeming rushed and the decision
for not including citizen concerns.
"This contract has been rushed,
it's been shoved down our resi-
dents' throats," said Commission-
ers Kendall. "I am not in favor of it."'
Commissioner Shelly Miller,-
meanwhile, defended the vote.
"There are a lot of added benefits
the city will be receiving," she said.
"I am very appreciative."
"I resent those accusations,"
said Commissioner Don Garrett,
responding to the allegations that
he and Mayor Ray Torres Sanchez
met to discuss the item before the
meeting. Commissioner Garrett
was one of the most vocal critics of
the police department,
"You reap what you,sow," he
said to Commissioner Kendall,
seeming to accuse, her in turn of
engaging in secret meetings with
former commissioners.
During the meeting, leaders
were careful with their words, mak-
ing sure to highlight the fact that the
contract was just that, a contract for
policing services and not a full
takeover of the police department.
With language that gives the
.city the ability to return to its. own
police department with 120 days
notice and the option to.make that


determination on an annual basis,
leaders said the city may decide to
reinstitute the department in the
future; though the likelihood of
that happening is not clear.
Under the terms of the agree-
ment, the county will provide a
captain who will serve as the
area's top representative for Belle
Glade a lieutenant, six sergeants
and 30 deputies, as well as an addi-
tional 23 people to serve as support
staff and with other services.
The cost of the contract is $3.39
million.
According to Finance Director
Derek Moore, the current police
budget hovers around $3.3 million,
though it was expected that next
year's budget could have risen to
as much as $3.9 million.
Locked in at $3.39 million per
year, the contract with the sheriff's
office provides the city with core
services, as well as ancillary servic-
es that are estimated to cost mil-
lions more but are offered to the
city at no additional cost.
If the. contract is extended
beyond the first years, all parties
can re-negotiate the terms, as well
as the price..
The move to contract with the
sheriff's office, though a hotly
debated issue that never took off
before, was thrust back into the
focus of commissioners after a
grand jury report released earlier
this year made allegations against
the chief of police and the police
department for a supposedly
botched investigation into a shoot-.
ing case last year.
The report said the chief may
even face criminal charges based
on the case.
The sheriff's office will conduct


business from its present sub-sta-
tion site, with plans to locate a facil-
ity within the city in the future. The
city attorney discussed the possibil-
ity of using part of the Lake Shore
Civic Center as office space for the
sheriff's office.
According to Acting Chief Calip-
to Gonzalez, most of the officers in
the police department had applied
to work for the sheriff's office, with


a notice of layoff explaining that all
officers would no longer have a job
at the city.
Officers will know, some before
others, whether they are eligible to
work for the sheriff's office, or if
they will be out of a job July 18, the
last date of their employment with
the city of Belle Glade. Though the
sheriff's office took over July 12,
current employees were expected


to help with the transition.
The city commission approved
a measure to pay all officers a
week's severance pay, despite con-
cerns from the finance director that
the extra week will be counter-pro-
ductive to the city's budget a
budget which is already under
some pressure to meet the initial
payments to the sheriff's office for
services.

GCSO seeks new COP volunteers


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Special to Okeechobee News
GLADES COUNTY Glades
County Sheriff Stuart Whiddort is
looking for a few good communi-
tyvolunteers.
With the long, summer
months here, and many of the vol-
unteers who serve on the sheriff's
office citizens observer patrol
(COP) away on vacation, Sheriff
'Whiddon is interested in recruit-
ing residents to help supplement
the department's daily patrol
duties.
Calling the work of a volunteer
member "invaluable," Sheriff
Whiddon hopes that a few com-'
munity-oriented residents will
take on the task.


The county agency has experi-
enced var. ing levels of success
with its COP program, with volun-
teers in Bckeaddgetecwa
considerable hand wi~ft paot~
duties and volunteers in Moore
Haven, Ortona and Lakeport'step-
ping up to help.
Though some areas are more
active than others with their COP
program, the program has been
instituted county-wide. All areas
benefit.
Historically, it's been a produc-
tive partnership between the law
enforcement agency and the pub-
lic. But with the onset of the mid-
summer months here, some of
the volunteersare gone.
The role of a COP volunteer is
to serve as an extra set of eyes for


the department. Volunteers nor-
rmally ride in squad cars on loan by
The department and patrol areas
1tff- ifti-. cities. Normally,
kbuinteers asilrnpli on the look-
out for possible criminal activities
and their job is to alert authorities.
Volunteers do not have the
power to make arrests or serve as
backups to other officers their
safety is well-guarded. The volun-
teers instead make sure that all is
right and help citizens in light dis-
tress, including maybe offering
somebody a 'jump' to get their
cars back on the road.
There are even husband-and-
wife volunteers who take to the
streets together to ward off the
criminal element a strong dis-
play of the ownership some resi-


dents feel about their own neigh-
borhoods and communities.
The benefit of having someone
local in the volunteer program is
that that person is already familiar
with the community, and knows
when something just isn't right.
Older residents generally apply
to work as volunteers; retired citi-
zens who are interested in giving
back to the community-and keep-
ing the streets safe and crime-free.
But the job isn't limited to any-
one. So long the volunteer passes
a background check, anyone can
become a volunteer COP mem-.
ber.
For more information, call the
Glades County Sheriff's Office at
(863) 946-0100 and speak to Mari-
on Shramm.

Computer glitch


does not hamper


FWC permit sales


04W 4qb imob- 4 q -

o u w w4w 4 qmmb m 4w 1oo 0 Pfml



Barbara olghlag ler Ilk' egalmi dlmm'


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission has
issued the following press
release regarding recreational
use permits.
In less than two hours, four
wildlife management areas
within the FWC "user pay" pro-
gram sold out of the coveted
recreational use permits.
Despite a computer glitch
that intermittently blocked per-
mit sales for about an hour,
recreational use permits sold out
between 10 a.m. and 11:45 a.m.
July 11 on Gulf Hammock,
Grove Park, Relay and Ft. McCoy
wildlife management areas. This
marks the second time in less.
than a month that the state's
automated Total Licensing Sys-
tem encountered technical
problems issuing permits to'
hunters.
"We are embarrassed and
frustrated that the private vendor
we contract with has once again
let the- hunters of this state
down," said FWC license and
permit director Bill Hunter.
The last time the system
experienced difficulties was
when alligator hunt permits
went on sale June 15. A recre-
ational use, permit allows the


permit holder and one depend-
ent child (under age 17) to hiunt,
fish and use the property for
other recreational activities.
With the exception of hunting,
the permit holder's spouse and
other dependent children can
fish and use the property for
recreational purposes as well.
Like the alligator hunt per-
mits, recreational use permits
are issued on a first-come, first-
served basis. Unlike alligator
hunt permits, only one recre-
ati6nal use permit may be issued
per person for each area.
Some of the recreational use
areas are in high demand, and
permits have sold out quickly'
every year regardless oefissuance
problems.
, There still remain several,
recreational use permits avail-
able to hunters for Nassau, San
Pedro Bay, Blue Water Creek and
Flint Rock wildlife management
areas. There are a limited num-
ber of permits for the Twelve
Mile Swamp and Robert Brent
areas.
Hunters can apply for recre-
ational use permits online at
MyFWC.com/hunting or at any
license agent or tax collector's
office.
