*Boil water notice
Residents in Glades County
that have pump/well systems
that are below 18 inches or
under water: a precautionary
boil water notice is in effect
until the water crests.
Roads now open
Floodwaters are subsiding
and all Glades County roads are
now open. Residents are
advised to continue using cau-
tion when traveling on wet
roadways.

Home sellers
turn to auctions
SARASOTA Back in
December 2004, when David
Holland paid $315,700 for a
new home in an east Venice
Centex subdivision, the granite-
and-tile beauty looked like an
easy flip.
But as Centex's sales slowed
down, his property turned into
aflop.
Last week, Holland cut his
losses. He put his house up for
an "absolute auction," mean-
ing no minimum and no
reserve. Once the auction com-
pany advertised the house that
way, Holland had no choice but
to let the property go to the
highest bidder;
He walked away with
$255,000, a painful reminder
that real properties, like stocks,
do not always go up.

Seminole excited
about reading
The Seminole Elementary
School Chiefs are excited about
our 100 Book Challenge pro.
gram. This research based pro-
gram is designed to increase
the reading level of our students
by giving them an opportunity
to practice their reading skills
and increase fluency and com-
prehension. First through fifth
grade students participate by
choosing from a variety of lev-
eled books in each classroom.
While reading these high inter-
est, educational books, the stu-
dents complete focus mini les-
sons, participate in
teacher-student conferences,
fill out reading logs, read at
home, chart their growth, and
earn steps. These reward steps
are accumulated and then
redeemed for incentive prizes.
Our goal is for each student to
earn at least 100 steps each
nine week period.

The Okeechobee High School Blazin' Brahma Band marched in the Okeechobee Labor
Day Parade.


Local residents


to pray for schools


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Over the next four Tuesday
evenings, area residents will have
a chance to demonstrate their
support of the school system.
The Okeechobee Ministerial
Association is sponsoring prayer
walks around the county's
schools this month. They will
march around the various cam-
puses praying for students, teach-
ers and administrators.
The purpose of the prayer
walk is to show a unified effort of
Christians to see God's light
.break forth over area schools.


Prayer walking has been
called "praying on site with
insight." There is something
about being there that helps
focus prayers, according to the
organizers of the event.
The association last spon-
sored a month of prayer walks on
a large scale in September of
2003. At that time, the prayer
walks included city and county
government buildings, and cli-
maxed with a prayer rally on the
courthouse lawn on the fifth
Tuesday of that month.

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

At the costs of both equipment and electricity for farm use,
these tax exemptions represent sizable savings for the agricultural

Creek between the Taylor Creek Bridge and the drawbridge on U.S.

Seminole is excited about


The Seminole Elementary
School Chiefs are excited about
our 100 Book Challenge pro-
gram. This research based pro-
gram is designed to increase the
reading level of
our students
by giving
them an
opportunity
to practice
their reading
skills and increase
fluency and comprehension.
First through fifth grade students
participate by choosing from a
variety of leveled books in each
classroom. While reading these
high interest, educational books,
the students complete focus
mini lessons, participate in
teacher-student conferences, fill
out reading logs, read at home,
chart their growth, and earn
steps. These reward steps are
accumulated and then
redeemed for incentive prizes.
Our goal is for each student to
earn at least 100 steps each nine
week period.
Teri Dixon and Pam Trent, the
principal and reading coach, are
actively supporting this program
by encouraging students on a


daily basis to read and enjoy our
large selection of books. They
are offering the teachers support
by giving them the materials they
need in order for the students to
continue experiencing success.
Please help us by encouraging
your child to read and earn steps
while at home.
Third grade
Welcome back! We are very
excited about starting a new
school year. We would like to
congratulate our Students of the
Week for the weeks of Aug. 21st
and Aug. 28th: Edwin Garcia and
Ashlee Gopher from Mrs. Pad-
gett's class, Jayce Smith and
Anjel Miller from Ms. Masters'
class, Shelby Coggans and Joel
Conejo from Ms. Schulfer's
class, Omar Carrera and Car-
olanne Lundy from Mrs.
McCranie's class, Francisco Man-
dujano and Margarita Mares
from Mrs. Quilin's class, and
Christen Bennett and Jasmine
Futch from Mrs. Lowe's class.
What a great start to a new
school year. We will be starting
our Principal's Multiplication
Challenge in the next few weeks.


We will send home notes so you
will know which facts are "The
Facts of the Week." An ice cream
party will be the reward for those
who learn their facts, O's to 9's.
Also, be watching for our family
night-all you want and need to
know about the FCAT!
Fourth grade
The students in fourth grade
eagerly anticipated Okee-
chobee's Labor Day festivities by
dressing up for Seminole Ele-
mentary School's Rodeo and
Western Wear Day. The other
grades showed their sense of
style as well by wearing cowboy
hats, cowboy boots, western
vests, and overalls.
Fifth grade
Fifth grade is off to a great
start this year. We are so happy
to welcome our two new teach-
ers to the fifth grade team: Ms.
Weber from Rhode Island and
Ms. Larcomb from New Hamp-
shire. They are a wonderful addi-
tion to our team.
Congratulations to our: "Stu-
dents of the Week" for the week
of Aug. 21st. They were Seth


reading

McWhorter in Mrs. Coldiron's
class, Miriam Mojica in Ms.
Weber's class, Ana Huerta in Ms.
Larcomb's class, and Maribel
Martinez in Mrs. Bailey's class.
For the week of Aug. 28th the
"Students of the Week" were
Summer Stripling in Mrs. Cold-
iron's class, Lacey Thomas in
Ms. Weber's class, Maritza Her-
nandez in Ms. Larcomb's class,
and Julieann Meives in Mrs. Bai-
ley's class. These students set a
good example for their class
mates and we appreciate their
hard work and cooperation.
Fifth graders have been work-
ing really hard in math so far this
nine weeks. We are working on
place value up to the billions as
well as decimals. The kids have
been enjoying many ways of get-
ting these concepts down. We
often play card games such as
"Go Fetch" which requires the
students to match up numbers in
extended form and word form.
Another popular game is "Gerdie
the Nerdie," which is like "Old
Maid." The students must match
numbers in word form to num-
bers in standard form.
We are looking forward to a
great year!

Foster parents
desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
heed of people willing to provide
foster children a normal family life
with nutritious meals, good daily
care and astimulating environment.
Foster parents may be married,
divorced or single. Their most
important characteristic is that they
are caring individuals who* under-
stand the problems and needs of
foster children. Please contact Karis-
sa Richards at 1-(800) 403-9311.
Coast Guard Auxiliary
is active in community
Since its creation by Congress in
1939,. the U.S. Coast Guard Auxil-
iary has served as the civilian, non-
military component of the Coast
Guard. Today, the 33,000 volunteer
men and women of the U.S. Coast
Guard Auxiliary are active on the
waterways and classrooms in over
2,000 cities and towns across the
nation. Each year, Auxiliarists (folks
just like yoi.u) save almost 500 lives,
assist some 15,000 boaters in dis-
tress, conduct more the 150,000
courtesy safety examinations of
recreation vessels and teach over
500,000 students in boating and
water safety courses. The results of
these efforts save taxpayers hun-
dreds of millions of dollars every
year. For information, call (863)
467-3085.
EYDC needs
volunteers
Volunteers do make a differ-


ence. This statement is proven daily
by hundreds of private citizens
who, as volunteers, enter juvenile
justice programs throughout the
state. The Eckerd Youth Develop-
ment Center (EYDC) needs you to
share your skills or special talents in
making a difference in the lives of
troubled youth. Volunteers are
needed as tutors, translators, arts
and crafts instructors, mentors, job
preparation and search instructors,
recreation aides and assistance in
developing a youth choir. Wouldn't
you like to make a difference? If so,
please contact EYDC, 7200 U.S.
