CWD not found
in deer herd
The Fish and Wildlife Conser, a-
tion Commission (FWC) has con-
cluded Florida's deer herd sho-ws
no signs of chronic wasting disease
(CWD) after four years of testing
for the deadly disease.
CWD is a contagious neurologi-
cal disease that has been found in
captive and wild herds of mule
deer, white-tailed deer and Rocky
Mountain elk within several Mid-
western and western states. The
disease causes degeneration of the
brains of infected animals resulting
in emaciation, abnormal behavior,
loss of bodily functions and death.
No southeastern states, includ-
ing Florida, have been hit by the
deer disease thus far.

Tax forms for ag exemptions available
OKEECHOBEE As a service to the agricultural community, the
Okeechobee County Farm Bureau has the tax exemption certificates
for certain power farm equipment purchases.
The purchaser's tax exemption certificate for electricity used
directly and exclusively in production or processing of agricultural
products on a farm are also available.
To pick up either certificate, visit the Okeechobee Farm Bureau
office at 401 N.W. Fourth St, in Okeechobee.
At the costs of both equipment and electricity for farm use, these
tax exemptions represent sizable savings for the agricultural produc-
er.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Taylor
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 Conservation
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 propeller 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 prioritizing
projects that will help the business community direct issues of con-
cern to tie proper authorities.
Sur\ e\ forms are available at the Main Street website www.main-
streetokeechobee.com; or, by contacting Executive Director Lydia
Jean Williams at (863) 357-MAIN.

CWD not found in Florida's deer herd


The Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) has
concluded Florida's deer herd
shows no signs of chronic wast-
ing disease (CWD) after four
years of testing for the deadly
disease.
CWD is a contagious neuro-
logical disease that has been
found in captive and wild herds
of mule deer, white-tailed deer
and Rocky Mountain elk within
several Midwestern and western
states. The disease causes
degeneration of the brains of
infected animals resulting in
emaciation, abnormal behavior,
loss of bodily functions and
death.
No southeastern states,
including Florida, have been hit
by the deer disease thus far.
The FWC tested 512 free-


ranging deer during the past year
and more than 2,300 deer during
the past four years, with no
CWD-positive results.
"Early detection is the key to
limiting the spread of the dis-
ease, if such an outbreak should
occur in Florida," said Deer Man-
agement Section leader Dr.
Robert Vanderhoof of the FWC's
Division of Hunting and Game
Management.
To reduce the chances of
CWD gaining entry into Florida,
it is illegal to bring into the state,
carcasses of any species of deer,
elk or moose from 14 states and
two Canadian provinces where
CWD has been detected.
The disease has been detect-
ed in New Mexico, Utah, Col-
orado, Wyoming, Kansas, Min-
nesota, Oklahoma, Montana,

Once again, this hunting sea-
son the FWC is turning to sports-
men for assistance in helping
monitor the state's deer herd for
CWD.
"We're asking hunters to
report any sightings of sickly or
scrawny-looking deer," Vander-
hoof said. "If you see such a
deer, call toll-free 1-866-CWD-
WATCH (293-9282). Wildlife
biologists will respond, and if
necessary, collect deer tissue for
testing. It's important to contact

OHS golf team
sign-ups ongoing
Anyone interested in joining the
Okeechobee. High School boys or
girls golf team should pick up a
physical form at the high school
office or at Quality T's as soon as
possible.
In order to participate, a current
physical must be on record with


us as soon as possible, because
such testing must take place
within 48 hours of a deer's death
to yield reliable results."
CWD WATCH is part of an
aggressive monitoring program
to ensure CWD is not already in
Florida and the disease does not
spread into this state.
Currently, there is no evi-
dence that CWD poses a risk for
humans, however, public health
officials recommend avoiding
direct contact with any sick-look-
ing deer or one that has died
from unknown causes.

CWD is available at

New Muse development project moves forward


By Nicole Curry
Special to the Okeechobee News
The Glades County Commu-
nity Development Department
has a new project in the works.
This project is a new develop-
ment in the Muse area, located
north of Labelle and west of SR
29, which will provide 3500 resi-
dential dwelling units and
80,000 square feet of commer-
cial development once develop-.
ment is complete.'


"My vision is that it will be a
stand-alone community," says
Larry Hilton, Deputy County
Manager for Community Devel-
opment. This area will probably
have a chain grocery store, drug
store, and other businesses
located in a small city that will
service the needs of the resi-
dents in the area.
The Muse Village Compre-
hensive amendment was first
proposed and approved by the
Board of County Commissioners


in 2002; however, the Florida
Department of Community
Affairs found that the amend-
ment was not in compliance
with State Comprehensive Plan.
The County and Applicant,
Lykes Brothers, have worked
several years on resolving the
issues that were not in compli-
ance. The Board of County Com-
missioners approved the
amended application for the
Muse Village, and the Florida
Department of Community


Affairs found it to be in compli-
ance with the State comprehen-
sive plan.
Before the amendment was
found to be in compliance, sev-
eral things had to take place.
These things included a public
notice, hearings, and a 21 day
period for challenges to be
made by people who disagreed
with the Muse Village Compre-
hensive Plan.
But that time is finally over
and no. challenges have been


made. The Lykes Brothers will
now be required to work with
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District, the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion, and the Florida
Department of Transportation to
get permits for such things as
storm water, waste water, and
the access of State Road 29.
After these permits are in
place, and rezoning has been
approved, a process where the
county can lay out the specific


points of the development. Then
the next step is actual construc-
tion.

While the Muse Village Com-
prehensive Plan has been
approved, it could still take the
rest of the year for construction
to begin. When it does, county
officials say the community can
look forward to a new commu-
nity in Glades County.

By Nicole Curry
Special to Okeechobee News
CLEWISTON With the
occurrences of vandalism that
have been happening on Cane
Field, Clewiston High School
and Hendry County School
Board are working in tandem to
come up with a solution.
After a thorough investigation
of the crime, Investigator Max
VanD'Huynslager of the Clewis-
ton Police Department made an,
arrest.
Slade Sloan, 18, was arrested
Aug. 3, in connection with the
vandalism case. Sloan reported-
ly confessed to being involved,
and was forthcoming with infor-
mation on others involved.
More arrests are expected.
In the meantime, several
steps are being taken to stop
vandalism from happening at,
the property again.
The school does not feel that
the property should be locked
up. Too many people use Cane
Field to work out and run the
track. These people use the facil-
ity properly and do not wreak
havoc upon it, school officials


said. Officials decided that the
field will not be locked up sim-
ply because of a few people.
"We are appreciative of the
people who do use the facility in
the proper manner, and we
would love to keep it open to
help them," said Coach Larry
Antonacci.
A sign has been posted
already that states a few things
that are not allowed inside Cane
Field, such as skateboarding, loi-
tering, animals, and playing on
the field.
The Clewiston Middle School
has a deputy on campus that will
periodically check the field.
Also, the Clewiston Police
Department will have someone
that will check the field during
after-school hours.
Security cameras will also be
placed in different positions
around the field. This will help
watch the field in between offi-
cer rounds.
Clewiston High School is
doing everything in their power
to keep people from vandalizing
the facility further.
"We would also like to have


people call us if they do hear or
see anything," said Coach
Antonacci. You can call the
school at (863) 983-1520 and ask
for Larry Antonacci, athletic
director, or Robert Egley, princi-
pal.


The school members will be
repainting the stadium,- and
invite the community to come
join them. Cane Field is almost
the hub of the city and is very
important to all football fahs in
Clewiston.

Kids in Distress
In Florida 200,000 children are
abused or neglected each year.
When families fail to care for their
children, the question is whose
children are these? The answer is
they belong to all of us. You can
help abused and neglected chil-
dren by donating your operational
car, boat, truck or other vehicle to
Kids In Distress by calling (954)
390-7620. Kids In Distress is a com-
munity-supported agency dedicat-
ed to the care, treatment, and pre-
vention of child abuse and neglect.
They have locations in Broward
and Palm Beach counties.
