Widening of S.R. 70 still a go


Expansion of road
will be done
in three segments
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The lack of a four-lane high-
way has long been recognized
as a hindrance to commerce in
the county. The Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners learned at their


meeting on Thursday that the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) is working to
alleviate that problem.
They also heard comments
from the county's grant consult-
ant Debbie Belcher concerning
uses of a possible Community
Development Block Grant
(CDBG).
Scott McCall of FDOT and
Michael Coleman, PE, with
Reynolds, Smith and Hills, Inc.
presented plans for the expan-
sion of S.RI 70 from Berman


Road to N.E. 34th Avenue to
four lanes.
Current plans call for the
project to be done in three seg-
ments
The first segment, from N.E.
34th Avenue to N.E. 48th
Avenue, which includes the
Okeechobee County Agri-Civic
Center, will require a 160-foot
right-of-way and sidewalks.
There will be curb and gutter on
the outside but not on inside
lanes.
Segment 2, which runs from


Tim, pSei Ed;: Capsule laid beneath courthouse


Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
On Thursday, July 27, a time capsule was placed beneath the floor of the Okee-
chobee County Judicial Center. Taking part in the ceremony were, left to right,
Sharon Robertson, clerk of thecourts, Retired J.udge Wilarn Hendry, Judge Eliza-
beth Metzger, Judge Shirley-rennan -domtfissioner Clif Betts, Betty Williamson,
president of the Okeechobee County Historical Society, Commissioner Elvie Posey,
Commission Chairman John Abney and Commissioner Ray Domer.


N.W 48th Avenue to N.W 80th
Avenue, and Section 3 from
N.W. 80th Avenue to Berman
Road will both require a 236-
foot, right-of-way. There will be
no curb and gutter and the road
,will have open swales on both"
sides.
Plans for Segment 2 include
straightening some curves at
Larson Dairy.
All three segments will
involve widening the road on
the north side to avoid impacts
on the agri-civic center, Mosqui-


to Creek Grocery and other
businesses on the south side of
the road.
Mr. McCall told the commis-
sioners that the remaining mile
between Berman Road and the
county line would be paved as
part of another project.
Current plans call for the
designs to be completed in
2007, followed by right-of-way
acquisition and construction in
2010 and 2011.

4 OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Saturday, July 29,2006


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.cornm/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, Fa. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS: In Sheriff May's recent letter in the paper
he estimates about 5,000 migrant workers here in Okeechobee. My
question would be: does he also have an estimate on how many of
these are illegals? If he doesn't, he should, and he should be doing
something about it. (Editor's Note: We contacted Sheriff May you're
your question and following is his answer. Okeechobee County is the
home of a large number of people who could be called illegal immi-
grants. The exact number is not known. If someone has entered our
country illegally they have broken a federal law, not a state law or
county ordinance. The federal government is currently trying to pass
an immigration plan. Immigration enforcement is the responsibility of
the federal government and as sheriff, I do not have the manpower,
space, time or money to arrest every illegal immigrant in our county.
However, any illegal person who breaks a county or state law will be
dealt with according to that law.)

NO AIR: My husband and I are in our 70s. We both have breathing
problems. Yesterday the air went out in the house. I called a company
that told me they would be out. I called again, and then they told me
they couldn't come until Thursday at 9 a.r. It's noon and they are still
not here. I called them and they then said it would be at 1. We have
been without air for more than 24 hours and we had to rent a motel
room for over $100. We are on Social Security and can't afford that.

FAIR: I am calling about the ag center in Okeechobee. I have been a
resident here for longer than 25 years. I am sick and tired of the county
commissioners voting no to the possibility of having a fair. Don't they
understand that it would help our local economy and bring people
into town, create jobs, etc.? (Editor's Note: For clarification purposes,
we should make note that the county commission has not voted
against having a fair here. Quite the opposite is true, they are in favor of
the fair. What they were against this week was raising taxes to come
up with $1.2 million for capital improvements at the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center. The fair committee said they have to have
these capital improvements in order to have a fair in 2007. The
improvements sought were to fill in the circle drive-for a midway and
to install water and electrical connections. The vote against the tax
hike was not a formal vote, rather an informal poll of the board. The
consensus of the board was to not increase taxes. If county taxes are
increased it would, raise $1.5 million for capital improvements
throughout the county. Of that amount, $1.2 million would be, avail-
able to the fair committee if the commissioners so decided.)

OPPORTUNITY: What is wrong with the county commissioners?
Don't they think the fair would be a great opportunity-to better the
economy in Okeechobee? Citizens, stand up, let's replace these coun-
ty commissioners,'or make it where it happens. This is a great oppor-
tunity to bring other events to the ag center, instead of it sitting out
there doing nothing.

DISAPPOINTED: I am very disappointed with our county commis-
sioners. Don't they realize that letting opportunities pass us by hurts
us? This is embarrassing. I have lived here 27 years. Don't you think it is
time that we get rid of these commissioners that don't care about
Okeechobee? They don't care about our youth, either.

By Rev. James R. Dawson, Jr.
Asst. Pastor, First United
Methodist Church
Sometimes as a minister, I get
asked a lot of questions dealing
with the subject of "romantic
love"" Teenagers are very curious
about experiencing it. Young
adults think they know all about
it. Middle age adults wonder if
they will ever find its true mean-
ing. And, older adults wonder if
they have ever experienced it.
Romantic love sometimes has
a different perception among
men and women. Some men
tend to define it by its sexual
nature and some women tend to
define it as a myth of unrealistic
expectation of men. For there is
no doubt women want to be
romanced, appreciated, and
cared for, and men want... well,
you, know what. men want. But,
getting men and women to agree
on what is genuine romantic love
can be difficult.
The Bible gives what I believe
to be is a great understanding of
how romantic love is to be given
and received by men and
women. In the book of "Song of
Solomon," King Solomon recog-
nizes that the erotic passions of
men and women can be aroused
before a relationship of true
commitment has been estab-
lished. These feelings are nor-
mal, powerful, and God given.
Solomon also knows that the
world we live in has done all it
,can to distort what genuine love
can be. So let's look at what the
Bible says about "genuine
romantic love."
In the Song of Solomon, God
gives us an idea of how romantic
love is intended to be. In today's
society we live in a culture where
human sexuality is in chaos.
Many believe that there are
already too many restrictions
when it comes to human sexuali-
ty, that people should be free to
express their sexuality and sex
behavior openly and without the
fear of being admonished. Hugh
Hefner believes that sexual
behavior should be open and
experienced without judgment
from anyone.. But this way of
thinking may be primarily the
reason why we have a crisis on
our hands with STD's, teen preg-
*inancies, and a sharp decline in
people's willingness to accept
and live by a moral code; Today
the merits of teaching abstinence
are being debated and morality is
under siege. But still all is not,
lost. God's Word is available to
clear up the confusion.
In the midst of this confusion,
Solomon declares a foundational
.principle for lovers. Three times,
in the Song of Solomon, he gives
the exhortation:, "Do not stir up
nor awaken loves until it pleas-
es" (Song 2:7; 3:5, 8:4). In this

passage, Solomon recognizes
that the erotic passions of the
body and mind can be aroused
before a relationship of true
commitment has been estab-
lished. Meaning, God is saying
that there is no room for a "love
'em and leave 'em" mentality.
Biblical love demands commit-
ment. It delights in the gift of sex-
ual pleasure, but the sexual rela-
tionship takes place in the only
context worthy of it, marriage.
Marriage is a call to the long-
term work of loving your partner
for mutual growth and benefit. It
is a bond in which both partners
are growing together and being
enriched emotionally, spiritually,
and physically.. God wants us to


show self control with our awak-
ened passions for sex. Society
may tell you that it is impossible
to practice self control, but that is
a lie. With God's help, you can
remain chaste. You can hold on
to one of the most precious gifts
until the right time, with the right
person, in the right relationship.
Romantic love knows no
boundaries. In the Song of
Solomon it appears that
Solomon is about to marry, and
does marry, a dark skinned
women (Solomon 1:5-6). She is
probably of Arabian or African
descent. Marriages across ethnic
and racial lines were not uncom-
mon in the ancient world (for
example see, Num. 12:1, Ruth
1:4, I1 Kings 11:1). Today, unfortu-
nately they pose a problem for
the ignorant and narrow minded.
The Bible does not prohibit inter-
racial marriages. True the
Israelites were forbidden to
marry Canaanites, Ammonites,
or Moabites, (Deut. 7:1-4, 23:3),
but even a first year Bible college-
student knows it was not based
on mere ethnicity but it had to do
with religion, morality, and
geopolitical considerations.
God created a diversity of
races on the earth. Differences in
background and skin color may
be hard for people to accept, but
not for God. He Himself reaches
out to all the peoples of the
world, so it is not surprising that
His Word may celebrate a mar-
riage between teen two people from
different ethnic groups. So don't
be racist because the God who


made all and created all is not.
Back to King Solomon, he and
his bride show all of the affection
and romance that people univer-
sally associate with being in love.
Theirs is one of a number of sto-
ries about romantic love told in
the Bible. Yet in a world filled
with people doing as they please,
Solomon would not have roman-
tic love, with his soon to be wife,
until he married her. (Please do
not confuse romantic love and
romancing someone as being
the same thing because they are
not.)
So, what does romantic love
look like in your life? Does it
involve a healthy blend of com-
mitment, service, passion and
joy? Do you express your feelings
of love in, healthy ways? Mean-
ing, do you recognize and fulfill
the sexual needs of your spouse?
Or, do you use sex as a means of
control? (I Corinthians 7: 1-7).
God is interested in mutual
respect when it comes to roman-
tic love. He gives us an opportuni-
ty to live a full and enriching life
with one another. But, He does
set strong boundaries when it
comes to romantic relationships
before and during marriage. God
isn't as interested in the color of
your spouse as He is in your will-
ingness to engage in romantic
love His way, a way that will bring
a life of happiness and enjoyment
with someone you want to grow
old with. Where do you place.
God in the romance category of
your relationship with that spe-
cial someone? I
