PENSACOIA(AP)- State and
local police should be able to
arrek illegal immigrants and gov-
ernment agencies and contract
tors; should be barred from hiring
them, Republican gubernatorial
candidate Tom Gallagher said Fri-
day.
Gallagher, Florida's chief
financial officer, unveiled those
,and other immigration proposals
after touring Pensacola's port,
where he*a1so said he would cre-
ate a state office of security and
preparedness if elected.
"Illegal immigration threatens
public safety and undermines
respect for the rule of law," Gal-
lagher said. "While we must
approach the issue of illegal
immigration with compassion,
Florida government must do its
part to secure our borders and
protect the public."
Florida law enforcement offi-


cers cannot now make immigra-
tion arrests without a warrant.
Gallagher said the law should be
changed to let them make arrests
for violations they come across
during their normal duties.
State and local police should
not be required to enforce immi-
gration laws nor displace federal
authorities but should have the
discretion to make such arrests,
Gallagher said.
He said a law should be
passed to require public employ-
ers and contractors to participate
in a federal work authorization
program that verifies the immi-
gration status of all job applicants.

al Charlie Crist are seeking the

Freshman Campus, and has been
teaching for nine years. He is also
an adjunct faculty member at
Indian River Community College
(IRCC), where he helps others
obtain their GED.
"Now that I have this degree, I
intend to become a supporter of
the Skip Bryant Memorial Schol-


arship fund with both time and
money," wrote Mr. Thomas in a
letter to the sheriff's office. "This
scholarship is a wonderful exam-
ple of how we care for each other
and the future of our county by
providing for our young people.,
"Words do not seem to be
enough to describe the gratitude
that I have in my heart for your
help in me achieving my dream,"
he continued.
- Mr. Thomas graduated from


Okeechobee High School in 1987
and is married with five children.
The memorial was set up by
the fallen deputy's wife, Ginny
Bryant, and her three daughters
- Madonna, Melissa and Laura.
Madonna is currently a deputy
with the OCSO.
Maj. Stephen said the memori-
al is presided over by a board of
directors made up of Sheriff Paul
May, Chief Denny Davis from the
Okeechobee City Police Depart-


ment, Tom Hebel, Mike
Costopoulos and Mrs. Bryant.
In his letter, Mr. Thomas said
attaining a graduate degree
required a great deal of time and
effort, but with the help of the
scholarship money he was able to
finally receive his degree.
"As you may know, each class
at the graduate level is very
expensive and, as a father of five, I
simply could not have done this
without you," he wrote.

motorcycle traffic."
The sheriff indicated that all
motels and campgrounds within
100 miles of Fort Pierce are already
booked.
Sheriff May said his department
will be stepping up their patrols,
but only because of the anticipated
traffic congestion.
"We don't expect anything
other than congestion," he said.
"These are law-abiding profes-
sional people. Some are Christian
clubs."


He went on to say that it's
doubtful 'outlaw' motorcycle
clubs will be attending the local
rally since the 66th annual Sturgis
Bike Week begins Aug. 7 in Stur-
gis, S.D. The Sturgis rally began in

1938, but a couple of years were
skipped due to World War II. Sev-
eral hundred thousand bikers
attend the weeklong event.
Even though it will be quite a
bit smaller, Sheriff May still expects
many of the bikers attending next
weekend's event to find their way
to Okeechobee County.
"I don't believe they are going
to come this close and not take a
ride to the lake," he said.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Tay-
lor Creek between the Taylor Creek Bridge and the drawbridge
on U.S. 441 S.E.
For this reason, boaters are asked to slow down and be careful
not to hit one of the gentle creatures.
According to Captain Barry 'Chop' Lege, from the Conserva-
tion Center for Lake Okeechobee, Kissimmee and Indian Rivers
and Everglades Education, Inc., the animals are probably mating
and will be even more susceptible to being struck by the pro-
peller of an outboard motor.

Survey will help business community
OKEECHOBEE The Economic Restructuring Committee of
Okeechobee Main Street has designed a survey to be used to
identify the needs of the business community.
Committee members will be delivering the forms to business
owners located in the downtown local planning area (LPA),
which is the target district for data input. Businesses outside the
LPA are urged to participate.
Survey results will be used to assist the committee in prioritiz-
ing projects that will help the business community direct issues
of concern to the proper authorities.
Survey forms are available at the Main Street website
www.mainstreetokeechobee.com; or, by contacting Executive
Director Lydia Jean Williams at (863) 357-MAIN.

Hospice of Okeechobee receives top grade


Hospice of Okeechobee
recently received excellent marks
during its annual survey by the
Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration. Lisa Blackman, hospice
'CEO explains "We are excited to
have received the best possible
outcome in our yearly state sur-
vey. They clearly recognized the
quality care that the professionals
at you Hometown Hospice pro-
vide. I am so proud of our nurses
and other patient care staff. They
are so loving and very skillful in
keeping our patients comfortable.
They are a wonderful group." Ms.
Blackman also stated that the
organization has a notable track
record of having received top
marks in their annual survey for
several years in a row.
Ms. Blackman explained that
Hospice of Okeechobee is cur-
rently in the process of going
through several additional state
surveys to get state approval to
open their new. 12 bed hospice
residence. She went on to say
"The Hamrick Home will be an
important addition to the array of
services we currently provide.
Individuals will receive a special
kind of caring at the hospice resi-
dence. The community has really
rallied around us and offered the
support needed to make sure this
dream becomes a reality. I think
everyone recognizes that resi-

dents of Okeechobee should have
this alternative available to them if
they are struggling to manage
their illness' at home. Previously,
their only choice was to be hospi-
talized, enter a nursing home, or
leave Okeechobee to enter a'hos-
pice residence on the coast. It is


important that individuals with a
life-limiting illness not be forced
to leave the community that they
love because they are ill. The
Hamrick Home will allow them to
continue living in Okeechobee."
Ms. Blackman indicated that
Hospice of Okeechobee plans to


immediately begin admitting
patients to The Hamrick Home. as
soon as they. receive final
approval from the state. They
expect such approval in the near
future. For further information

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.

We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot and
a return of the values of the American Revolution.

How are we doing?

4 OPINION


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.con/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.
APARTMENTS: This is in reference to the let down that Daniel
Creech received at the council meeting. There are people right now
who are in need of a home with reasonable rent. Well, what is the dif-
ference with single concrete homes and concrete apartments? You are
talking about building a factory out here on U.S. 98 where are those
people going to live? They may want to purchase a place to live closer
to their job rather than having to travel from of town. Concrete build-
ings are what we need and reasonable rent. There are a lot of those
retired and have just a set income and really can't afford these outra-
geous rentals that are being asked for now. Councilmen and mayor,
please think about this before your next meeting. I hope that you'll put
this on your agenda and change your mind. (Editor's Note: The coun-
cil agrees with you that affordable housing is needed in Okeechobee.
However, they voted against this measure because the area where
the apartments were to be built is not zoned for multi-family units.
The site is currently zoned for single family homes, not multi family
dwellings. And since they are trying to avoid 'spot zoning' they felt
they had to vote against Mr. Creech's request. Council members said
if the apartments were to be built anywhere but in the middle of the
homes such as at the end of the block or in a vacant area they
would have'been more inclined to grant the developer's request.)

WATER PROBLEM: A big thank you to all the people that helped us
with our water problem in Treasure Island Wednesday night. Thank
you all.

GOOD SENSE: Mr. Pritchard's new letter, as usual, makes very good
sense. He has a perfectly sound argument for'keeping the church
away from the state.

WAR OF WORDS: When our CIA grabs people in Italy or Germany,
they are detained. When Israel goes to Palestine and removes elected
officials, they are arrested. And when Hezbollah takes soldiers, they
are kidnapped.

CONFLICT: It is my understanding that the man having the shell pit
road in Lazy 7, built the road in the beginning and had gave people the
right of way to build their home on this road. How soon we forget the
good things people will do. Also, four of the board members live on
this road and I feel they should abstain from voting, because this is a
conflict of interest. (Editor's Note: This issue has been raised at meet-
ings of the Okeechobee County Board of County Commissioners as
well as the county planning board. According to the county attorney,
he could not force board members to abstain from voting due to a
possible conflict of interest. He told the board members they would
have to use their own judgment and abstain from voting if they felt
they could not be impartial. One planning board member has
abstained from voting on this issue.)

LEAVE ME ALONE: I agree with people who said leave the truckers
alone. Now if I can get Sheriff May and his deputies to leave me alone
for the same reason, I would be very happy. I rob liquor stores and
convenience stores for a living that is my job. I would also like to
become a salesman I would like to be able to sell cocaine and
meth. So leave me alone, sheriff, and let me do my job.

Letter to the Editor


Totally impressed
I was fortunate enough to
attend the benefit for the late
and wonderful April 'Yates'
Brown. I just want to say how
totally impressed I was with the
way the whole benefit went.
April .Selph wentabove and
beyond what anyone expected
of her, even us, her.family. I am
the proud aunt of April Selph,
and I personally want to tank
her, and everyone else that was
involved in making it such a suc-
cess. It was a celebration of April
Brown's life. Not a tear was
shed, it was a joyful occasion
made so by the love of so many
friends.
I was amazed at how much
work went into this benefit, and
know that 95 percent of the


work was done by April Selph. I.
also want to thank Alan for the
use of Good Spirits. He was help-
ful throughout the day and I can-,
'not thank him enough.
The three bands that came
and unselfishly played were
awesome, and I thank them as
well.
I also want to the businesses
'that supplied so much, and
bought the spaghetti dinners.
April, if you ever need a job I
would consider event planning,
and I could not be more serious.
Lastly, thank you all that
came and made this such a suc-
cess.
May God continue to bless
each and every one of you.

Glades County manager sees


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Okeechobee News
GLADES COUNTY "Glades
County will be what we want it to
be. We have the will but must also
lend a hand and more importantly
a head. Teamwork really does
work!" said County Manager Wen-
dell Taylor:
As of July 13, Mr. Taylor has, in
his words, "Survived one year in
Glades County, and I'm still enjoy-
ing it. Now I'm going for a second
year and we'll see what happens!"
Well, a lot has already hap-
pened and there's more on the
drawing board. To begin with, in
part follows highlights of the
Annual Report from July 1, 2005 to
June 30, 2006.
"There were a number of sig-
nificant events and decisions
made
by the Board of County Com-
missioners during the past year,"
said Mr. Taylor.
Some of these decisions/events
are:
The county procured 72 +
acres for an industrial/business
park and began construction of a
$33 million Detention Facility on
the property. Some of this property
will be used for construction of
Glades County Public Safety (EM,
EMS, EOC) building in the near
future. The remaining land in the
park is being surveyed for develop-
ment into a commercial park.
Impact Fees were enacted to
be effective July 1, 2006. This helps


solve issues of concurrency as
required by the state. These funds
will be used to build and improve
roads, parks and recreation, emer-
gency medical services and educa-
tion. In abbreviated language, Mr.
Taylor explained that the word
"concurrency" means that all nec-
essary services to support any type
development will be in place prior
to the actual development that is:
roads, public education, EMS,
parks and recreation.
The old Planning and Zoning
functions were reorganized and
actions redirected toward Com-
munity Development. The
approach takes a broader look at
requirements to meet the
demands of the community as a
whole.
In January 2006, a complete
review and revision, when applica-
ble, of land development regula-
tions began. The process will last a
year before it is finished with the
first round of changes. These revi-
sions will make a lasting change
on many developments and citi-
zens lives of Glades County.
Building inspections and
inspectors were changed begin-
ning in December 2005. Fees were
adjusted to be revenue neutral but
to be fair to all. The county went
from contract inspectors to county
inspectors to improve service to all
builders.
Cost is down, service is up
and customer satisfaction has
soared over $200,000 saved with
better service.


A resolution on Lake Okee-
chobee and Caloosahatchee River
was passed that encouraged coun-
ties to work cooperatively to
improve water quality and clean
up the lake and river. Safety is
always paramount in decision
making.
New leadership was appoint-
ed in Community Development
Emergency Management, SHIP
(State Housing Improvement Pro-
gram), Probation, County Landfill,
and Veterans Service Officer.
The office of 911 Coordinator
was established and filled. Much
work has begun with a complete
review and revision of street
names and house/business num-
bering, county mapping. First
responders will have a new
response system that will ensure
faster action and better communi-
ty service.
New EMS Stations were
established on Pollywog Road and
at the Road Department.
A new agreement between
the County and Moore Haven
should improve fire protection serv-
ices in Moore Haven and vicinity.
Glades County entered into an
agreement with South Florida
Water Management District, and
the Soil Conservation District to
clean drainage ditches near the
Caloosahatchee River. This agree-
ment is expected to be the first of
many such projects with the South
FWMD to improve water control
and quality surrounding the River.
For the first time ever, State


progress
and Federal agencies were brought
to Glades County to discuss loan
and grand programs that were
available to improve community
services. Those agencies were:
USDA (agriculture) Federal and
State support, US Department of
Commerce, FEMA, Department of
Community Affairs.
Repairs to the Courthouse
have begun following hurricane
damage. Work will continue for at
least a year. Likewise the EMS build-
ing in Moore Haven was destroyed
and abandoned. Numerous other
structures and equipment were
damaged; most interim recovery
actions have been completed.
Glades County Personnel Poli-
cy Manual was written and adopted
by the Board. Employees have in
writing what is expected from them
and what they can expect from the
county. This document provides
stability for the county and its
employees.
Employees were given a 4 per-
cent across the board increase in
pay which is the first significant
raise in years.
Perhaps the best "First Birthday"
present that was given the county
manager was less than ten words
that were voiced by more than a
few: "He's the best thing that's hap-
pened to Glades County!"
Next week, the question "What
Needs to be done" will be
addressed which will cover the
time period from July 1, 2006 to
June 30, 2007.


Glades County Arrest Report


The following individuals were
arrested on felony or driving
under the influence (DUI)
charges by the Glades County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO), the Semi-
nole Police Department (OCPD),
the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP),
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) or

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Rev. Frank Adams
Pastor, Abundant Blessings
Assembly of God
No One Likes Change
A rookie reporter was dis-
patched by his editor to interview
one of the town's citizens who
was celebrating his centennial
birthday. The reporter comment-
ed to the old gentleman, "I bet
you have seen a lot of changes in
your 100 years. The man replied,
"Yes sir and I have been against
every one of them". Nobody likes
change.
We have seen a lot of changes
in our world. So much in fact that
we are sometimes to wonder will
anything remaining the same?
There is one immutable reality in
our world that will never change.
That one unchanging reality is
Jesus Christ, all others are shifting
sand.
The Old Testament declares
"for I am the Lord, I change not..."
(Malachi 3:6) The New Testa-
ment confirms "Jesus Christ the
same yesterday, today, and forev-
er." (Hebrew 13:8) God is self
existent, eternal and perfect. He
sustains all, but is Himself inde-
pendent of all. He gives to all but
is enriched by none. He has never


evolved, improved, nor grown.
He is perfect from the beginning.
The immutable nature of
Christ benefits you and I in at least
three ways: One, because Jesus
Christ is always the same, He is
always real. Christ is always His
authentic self no matter the gen-
eration or the circumstance,
Jesus is the same. People change,
but Christ remains the same. You
never have to wonder how He
will respond or react. He is the
same and therefore He is safe.
Secondly, because Christ is
always the same, He is relevant.
He has an immediate and direct
bearing on every generation. The
generation that ignores or rejects
the relevance of Jesus Christ does
so at its peril. "The counsel of the
Lord is forever, the plans of His
heart to all generations" (Psalm
33:11). Every generation will find
Christ real and relevant.
Third, because Jesus Christ is
always the same, He is reliable.
You can trust Him, He will never
fail you, harm, nor disappoint
you. Human nature may disap-
point or even harm, but not so
Jesus Christ.
"Not a word failed of any good
thing which the Lord had spoken,
all came to pass." (Joshua 21:45)


When Lloyd C. Douglas,
author of "The Robe" and other
novels, was a university student
he lived in a boarding house, says
Maxie Dunnam in "Jesus' Claims-
Our Promise". Downstairs on the
first floor was an elderly retired
music teacher, now infirm and
unable to leave the apartment.
Douglas said that every morn-
ing, they had a ritual that they
would go through together. He
would come down the steps,
open the old man's door and ask,
"Well, what's the good news?"
The old man would pick up his
tuning fork, tap it on the side of
his wheelchair and say, "That's
middle C! It was middle C yester-
day; it will be middle C tomorrow,
it will be middle C a thousand
years from now. The tenor
upstairs sings flat, the piano
across the hall is out of tune, but
my friend that is middle C!"
The old man had discovered
one thing upon which he could
depend, one constant reality in
his life, one "still point in a turning
world." For Christians, the one
"still point in a turning world," the
one absolute of which there is no
shadow of turning is Jesus Christ.
Trust Him.

Oakview



pastor


resigns
Dr. John Keith, pastor of
Oakview Baptist Church since
1992, has resigned to accept the
pastorate of Red Hills Southern *
Baptist Church in Cedar City, ,
Utah.
Oakview has experienced sig-
nificant growth during the time
Dr. Keith has been its pastor and
has relocated and expanded its
ministry. For many years out west
has been a desire of the Keith's.
Many mission trips t Utiah, Idahro
and Montana hkave ben parl -.f
John's ministry.i One Oakview"
member said, "Missions. and I
evangelism have always been in I
the hearts of John and Linda."
Southern Baptist work in Utah is
growing but still considered a pio-
neer mission field. Red Hills
Southern Baptist Church is a vital
part of the mission strategy of the
Southern Baptist Convention.
Another member, when asked
about Dr. Keith decision, said, "I
will miss him and Linda greatly,
but I know that being obedient to
what God wants is foremost in,
their lives."
Oakview Baptist will honor
Pastor and Mrs. Keith in a com-
missioning service on Sunday,
August 6, at 10:30 a.m. His first
Sunday as Pastor of Red Hills will
be August 27.

thoughts, motivational tools and
practical ideas to equip and
encourage parents.
Mr. Andreassen is the founder
and athletic director of the Christ-
ian Home School Athletic Associ-
ation of Florida. He has over 20
years experience as a teacher,
coach, lecturer and children's
minister. He was recently induct-
ed into "Who's Who among
America's Teachers", a national
recognition honoring our nation's
most respected teachers. Mr.
Andreassen is the first home
school educator to receive this


award.
The tradition of the Olympic
flame began during the ancient
Greek Olympic Games over 2,700
years ago. A new flame was lit for
each Olympics every four years
and burned throughout the
games.
The first torch relay to light the
Olympic flame took place at the
1936 games in Berlin, Germany.
For each Olympics, a new flame is
started in the Olympic stadium in
Greece. The flame is then trans-
ferred to a torch and transported
to the country where the current
games are to begin, usually by air-
plane, and then handed off to
torchbearers who take it to the
site of the new Olympic Games.
The last runner uses a special
torch to light the large Olympic
torch. The flames burn through-
out the games and are extin-
guished in a special closing cere-
mony at the games' end.
The public is invited to attend.
