day, July 22, and booked into the
Madison County Jail in Madison,
Ind. He will be held there until he
is extradited to Florida.

to a police

the Elwood .
Police Depart- 1

time of his
arrest Cox was

ed. Records Cox

to his Cox's home to check on
him. However, he was not there.
Once it was determined that
Cox, 45, was no longer at his
home local authorities were noti-
fied. The 5-foot-11-inch, 176-
pound, Cox had been living at
14725 N.W. First Parkway, which
is in the northern part of Okee-
chobee County.
The GPS device was found

Generic school
supplies equal
to name brands

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
With school right around
the corner, parents have begun
to purchase back-to-school
items for their children. In addi-
tion to jeans, shirts, dresses and
shoes, area schools have pro.
vided local stores with lisis ol
required school supplies.
Parents should take note
that some of the supplies are
listed by brand name. Accord-
ing to Assistant Superintendent
of Schools Ken Kenworthy, it is
not necessary for parents to
purchase certain brand name
items that are on the school


supply lists when there are less
expensive, comparable items
available.
"Brand names do not mat-
ter," said Mr. Kenwor'thy. "We
do not endorse any one partic-
ular brand, and parents should
purchase items that are within
their budgets.";
Russ Brown, director of stu-
dent services, is in full agree-
ment.
'"Those lists did not come'
.across m Jes;: \,~, ,ippIgyal,". .
stated Mi. BioLn "I didn't
kno\\ anything about .them.
Parents do. not have to pur-
chase.exactly what is on those,
lists. They can purchase alter-
natives."
Unfortunately, the lists were
already in local stores and

Cox

Continued From Page 1
Cox and Ogorman were
arrested at the home of Diane Jes-
sup, a cousin of Cox's. According
to the police report, the two fugi-
tives began drinking heavily and
started to argue. During this argu-
'ment, they talked about being
wanted by law enforcement.
Because of this, Ms. Jessup
went to the Elwood Police Depart-


Supplies

Continued From Page 1
many parents purchased the
items without knowing that they
could substitute generic brands
for pricey name brands.
With prices going up all the
tirne and supply\ lists getting
longer and longer, it is important
to note that there are generic
brand items that are far less costly
than their narne brand counter-
parts.
For example, a certain request-
ed brand name blunt-end pair of
school scissors is priced at $1.88,
while the generic brand costs .97
cents. A popular name-brand of

and Ogorman.
The police report states that
Cox was uncooperative and told
them his name was-John Thoma-
son. The report goes on to say
that Cox was booked into the
Madison County Jail as a John
Doe until they received further
information that included a
description of tattoos like the.
ones found on Cox.
Elwood, Ind., is located 38
miles north of Indianapolis.


crayons .has a price tag of $3.22
for 64 crayons; the generic brand
is .94 cents for the same amount
of crayons. A well-known scientif-
ic calculator is priced at $1S.9-1
The lesser-known brand right
next to it has the same seven func-
tions and sells for $9.73. There are
numerous brands ol hand sanitiz-
er available. All serve the same
function.
Keep in mind inat you may be
given additional required supply
lists when you attend Open
House on Aug. 10. If in doubt
about an item on your child's list,
do not hesitate to contact the
school for clarification as to an
item's necessity or brand require-
ment.

Okeechobee wildfire prevention

committee wins bronze award


Sunday, July 23, the National
Cooperative Forest Fire Preven-
tion Program awarded the Flori-
da Division of Forestry's Okee-
chobee District a Bronze Smokey
Award for outstanding service in
wildland fire prevention. The
presentation was made during
the Florida Fire Chiefs Associa-
tion's annual meeting on Marco
Island.
I This award recognizes the
Okeechobee District's Fire Preven-
tion Committee (Okeechobee,
Highlands, Glades, Martin, St.
Lucie, and Indian River Counties).


These individuals serve as fire pre-
vention mentors for their co work-
ers. The committee's mission is to
communicate, educate, and moti-
vate their co-workers on fire pre-
vention ideas and to implement,
those innovations locally.-
The committee has shown
great creativity, dedication and
commitment to preventing wild-
fires and in education the com-
munity about wildfires. They
have also proven their, willing-
ness to put others before them-
selves in times of need. The com-
mittee has been selected to


receive this award because they
have made significant contribu-
tions to Florida's fire prevention
program through their work with
Smokey Bear programs and pub-
lic education on debris burning
and other fire related issues.
The Smokey Bear Awards are
sponsored by the Advertising
Council, the National Association
of State Foresters and the USDA
Forest Service. Eight Bronze
Smokey Bear Awards were give
this year and two of those awards
came to Florida.

FAIR Obviously, the members of the County Fair Board have entirely,
lost touch with reality, what with their proposal to spend $1.2 million to
create a midway area at the Agri-Civic Center, plus $11,000 in operating
expenses to conduct a fair. Haven't we wasted enough money on this
White Elephant? The county fair board should be required to be finan-
cially self-sufficient through fees, donations, fundraising, etc., and also
pay the county for the use of public facilities rather than wastefully spend-
ing tax dollars. We have more urgent public needs.

ISRAEL: When Israel started bombing U.N. Peacekeepers after they
had been told that those forces were in their target zone, that's going too
far. I feel that the United States of America should cut off all support to
Israel. They do these things because they have our support, they couldn't
do this on their own. All they have accomplished is to cause problems
between the United States and our true allies. Now it's time for it to come
to an end let them stand or fall on their own.

LONG HAIR: About the long hair in restaurants. I absolutely agree
with the caller. No one asked them to cut their hair. What they need to do
is wear a hairnet or cap, or something. I don't want to say which restau-
rant I was in last night, but sure enough I found a hair about 6 inches long
in my food. I don't want to gripe or anything, but it is really gross to find
greasy hair in your food. I truly believe the health department needs to get
on them about it. Even after I complained about this, they made it sound
like it was not a big deal. I called Okeechobee and they don't have any-
one that goes around and does this, you have to go through Tallahassee.
Do you know who to call to have these restaurants checked?
Editor's Note: Such complaints should be made to the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services in Tallahassee. You can download a
complaint form by going to www.800helpfla.com/complain.html. Or,
you can call 800-435-7352.

Grant to help with storm clean-up


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Special to the Okeechobee News
HENDRY COUNTY At last
week's Clewiston City Commission
meeting, commissioners voted
unanimously to approve an inter
local agreement for Recovery Initia-
tive Funding that would benefit the
cities of Clewiston and LaBelle and
provide much-needed monies to
continue the post-hurricane relief
effort.
Working hand-in-hand, the
three entities hope that the applica-
fin vi All K annrnor and the funH-


made a reality.
If approved, the grant would
provide $6.7 million in grant fund-
ing from the state to the county and
cities. After last year's Hurricane
Wilma, elected officials remain
focused on helping the area back
to its feet.
According to information pro-
vided at the meeting, 70 percent of
the funding will be used toward
housing efforts, with the remaining
30 percent to be utilized for a new
emergency operations center to
service the local cities.

county, Ron Zimmerly, "This
process will require some time to.
get it in full swing."
According to him, the applica-
tion must still go through the prop-
er channels before the county is
notified that the funding has been
approved.
After getting the signature of
both Clewiston and LaBelle offi-
cials, the county will review the fin-
ished application and submit it to
the state, which is providing the
funding dollars.


later, whether or not the applica-
tion was approved.
The money, being handled
through the county, is only avail-
able to area residents who meet
certain income guidelines. Those
receiving the money will then be
able to use the funding to help pay
for the much-needed hurricane
repairs, the sight of which can still
be seen on homes and buildings in
and around the Clewiston area.
Anticipating the approval of the
funding, the SHIP program will

.the price for which;Milani had
offered to buy the, land.
: The settlement satisfies both

City officials are hoping to -get

The r eason for the temporary
