Inside:

Texas moves
up to No. 2
(AP) As if Ohio State at
Texas wasn't already a big
enough game, now it's No. 1
vs. No. 2.
The Longhorns moved up
one spot to No. 2 in The Asso-
ciated Press Top 25 on Tues-
day, right behind the top-
ranked Buckeyes.
The two powerhouses will
square off in Austin, Texas, on
Saturday, a much-anticipated
rematch of last year's 25-22
victory by Texas in Columbus,
Ohio.
It'll be the first time since
1996 that the top two teams in
the AP poll will meet in a regu-
lJar-season game. That year,
No. 2 Florida State beat No. I
Florida 24-21 in mid-Novem-
'ber. The Galors and Semi-
noles met in a rematch in the
Sugar Bowl about a month
and a half later, and Florida
won 52-20 to earn its only
national championship.
Southern. California moved
up three spots to No. 3 in this
week's first regular-season
media poll, and Notre Dame
slipped two places to No. 4
after a 14-10 victory at Georgia
Tech. The Fighting Irish share
the fourth spot with Auburn.
Ohio State received 39 first-
place votes and 1,568 points in
the poll after opening its sea-
son with a 35-12 win over
Northern Illinois.

Approval of the budget,
discussion of impact fees and
student and employee recog-
nition will be highlights of
Thursday night's special
meeting of the Okeechobee
County School Board.
Board members will con-
sider adopting a millage rate
of 7.766, which is down from
the 2005-06 millage rate of
7.955. However, most people
will see their school taxes go
up because property values in
the county have risen from
$1.8 billion to $2.3 billion
since last year.
One mill equals $1 for
every $1,000 of assessed


value.
The millage rate includes 2
mills for capital projects.
The proposed budget for
the 2006-07 fiscal year totals
$75.8 million, and will allo-
cate $7,732 per student and
will allow for 12 new buses
and maintenance vehicles, a
forklift, a generator at Yearling
Middle School and the pur-
chase of land for a school site.
The board will also hear a
report from Walter Keller, the
consultant that the board
hired to conduct an impact
fee study. If impact fees were
adopted, a developer would
have to make a cash contribu-
tion to the school system to

Another topic that has been
in the news lately has been

Volunteers to beautify OHS campus


By Victoria Hannon
Special to Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High
School chapters of the National
Honor Society and the National
Beta Club are holding a joint
campus cleanup on Saturday,
Sept. 9.
The cleanup are held yearly
and encourage the students of
these organizations to show
their school pride by helping to


keep it clean and orderly.
In years past, the students.
participating in the cleanup
have done such services as re-
mulching the flowerbeds
around the school, organizing
workrooms, and on one occa-
sion the students helped to lay a
new walkway. The projects to be
accomplished by students dur-
ing this cleanup have yet to be
decided.
The Beta Club usually holds


their own cleanup each month,
although the National Honor
Society joins in a few each year,
depending on the other activities
being held throughout the year.
Sponsor of the NHS, Wendy
Riester, said "we have been
holding joint cleanup since I
began as sponsor of this club."
On average, around twenty stu-
dents participate in the joint
cleanup each year.
.These activities complete


some of the required volunteer
hours that most college scholar-
ships require, as well as fulfilling
a portion of the requirements
that members of both organiza-
tions must fulfill to be recog-
nized as a member at gradua-
tion.

In addition, the cleanup
allow students to renew their
pride in the school they attend.

Teen killed by lightening bolt
LEHIGH ACRES (AP) A Fort Myers teenager was killed when a
lightning bolt struck the tree he was standing under, his family said.
Christian Arceneaux, 13, had spent Labor Day swimming in a pop-
ular watering hole with several friends. It had not yet started raining
when Arceneaux was struck and killed instantly around 3:45 p.m.,
witnesses said.
He was pronounced dead at Lehigh Regional Medical Center.
"There really wasn't anything anyone could do," said the victim's
mother, Lisa Holt. "I think he lived for the moment. He didn't see past
tomorrow."
Holt said she had warned her son many times against playing out-
side during thunderstorms. But Arceneaux was a Florida boy at heart,
who loved hunting, fishing, mudding and spending time at the beach.
Relatives said the teen was outgoing and adventurous and made
friends easily. He started the eighth grade last month at Lee Middle
School. A team of grief counselors were scheduled to be at the school
Tuesday.

Missing jogger found stuck in swamp
ORLANDO (AP) A jogger missing for four days was found
stuck in a waist-deep swamp near the University of Central Florida.
Eddie Meadows was forced to drink swamp water to keep
hydrated during the four-day ordeal. The 62-year-old left to run at
lunchtime Thursday but never returned to his office at a nearby uni-
versity research park, authorities said.
He was found Monday by UCF professor Ron Eaglin, who said he
heard a sloshing sound in a canopied marsh as he searched for
Meadows.
Meadows was parched and covered with bug bites, but upon
hearing Eaglin's calls, managed to pull himself out of the swamp.
"He's a strong guy. He's in good shape. He's a marathoner," said
UCF Sgt. Woody Furnas. "He said he slept a lot and stayed down in
the water. And he's been having to drink the swamp water."
Meadows was hospitalized at Florida Hospital East where he was
reunited with his wife and two adult sons.
A hospital spokeswoman would not discuss Meadows' hospital-
ization but said his "condition is being assessed."

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 direct-
ly 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 producer.

ance premiums increased to
$337,000 from $248,000 last
year. Health insurance was pro,
rated for the police and fire
departments to reflect the risk
levels due to workers compen-
sation codes. This alleviated
extra expenses to the city by sep-
arating these departments in
order to pay a lower rate for
departments that pose a lower
risk level of workers compensa-
tion injuries.
The law enforcement budget
is proposed to increase from
$1,597,373 to $1,708,090. This is
an increase of $110,717.
The fire protection budget is
proposed to increase from
$1,109,027 to $1,166,210, which
is an increase of $57,183.
The increases in law enforce-

Second Grade
Mrs. Greseth's class is off to a


super start! In reading the students

fun writing/art activity to go along
with their story ."Mac's Wish
Comes True." They are reviewing
long vowel sounds and going over
what makes a sentence a sen-
tence!
In math the students are doing a
super job on numbers to 1,000.


Congratulations to our students of
the week, Michael Shablom and
Jennifer Ehrlich. Way to go!
Fourth Grade
Mr. Goff's class is very excited to
be back in school and is working
hard to make this the best year
ever. We have been working hard
on learning the class rules and pro-
cedures and have been doing a
great job following them. We have
been enjoying getting to know our
teacher and our new classmates.
We are excited about what the
new school year has in store for us.
In math we have finished chap-
ter one and two on place value,
ordering and comparing numbers.
We remembered these concepts
from third grade and we are about
to quickly work through these
chapters. In reading we enjoyed


the story "The Gardener," about a
little girl called Lydia Grace who is
sent to live with her aunt and uncle.
The story is told through letters the
little girl writes.
In social studies we enjoyed
learning about the different state
symbols and how they came to be
so important to our state. In writing
we are working on expository writ-

The Okeechobee News, Wednesday, September 6,2006


Services for children at risk explained


Judge Brennan was a Spot-
light Speaker at the Community
Collaborative Council meeting
on Tuesday, Aug. 22. Judge
Brennan along with Attorney
Natalie Kirchner, Department of
Juvenile Justice, and George
Suntum, WaveCrest, shared
information about the following
programs to help children at risk
and in need of services.
How many times have you
heard about a child beyond the
control of his parents, but told
that nothing can be done until
they are arrested? That is not
true, something can be done. If
you know of a child that skips
school, runs away or threatens
to run away, sneaks out or
breaks the rules there is help.
Help is available through the
Department of Juvenile Justice,


Children's Home Society and the
Courts. The Florida Legislature
passed a law (now Chapter 984,
F.S.) that provides help to fami-
lies and children who need serv-
ices to improve the behaviors on
the part of the child, help the
family to move beyond crisis
and prevent further problems.
The Florida Department of Juve-
nile Justice funds and supports
these programs to keep kids out
of serious trouble..
The first step is to call the
WaveCrest Teen Hotline (800)
881-8855. If you are not satisfied
with the results of that phone
call you can call Linda Young,
Clerk's Office 763-2131, or Jimi
Cashwell, Judge Brennan's judi-
cial assistant 763-3193.
The next step will be to write
a plan for voluntary services. If


Wedding


the parent and/or child is not in
agreement with the voluntary
plan, will not participate, has
special needs or the case is com-
plicated that case will be
referred for a Case Staffing Com-
mittee Meeting.
The parent may also file a
court petition if the Department
agrees without the case staffing.
If the department fails to have a
case staffing committee meeting
within seven days or if the par-
ent does not agree with the
Departments plan for service,
the parent must give the depart-
ment prior written notice of the
intent to file.
The courts have powers of
disposition to order the
parent/child to be supervised by
the Department: counseling,
services, community service,
place the child with another
adult temporarily, and if other
remedies fail place the child in a
residential program like the
Sheriff's Youth Ranch for 90
days, with additional 30 days if
needed for reunification.
Natalie Kirchner, Attorney
with the Department of Juvenile
Justice, presented additional
information on the Children in
Need of Services/Families in
Need of Services (CINS/FINS).
Children's Home Society and
WaveCrest are the local
providers for these services.
These are prevention services,


before the child is considered
delinquent; however, services
can be obtained once a delin-
quency case is closed. Another
service is a truancy program;
parents can be fined, jailed or
held in contempt of court if the
child does not go to school.
George Suntum, program
supervisor at WaveCrest, pre-
sented more information about
the WaveCrest facility and their
programs. WaveCrest is a twelve
bed facility, six beds for girls and
six, beds for boys. The facility
was opened in 1992 and is
licensed by Department of Chil-
dren and Families and the
Department of Juvenile Justice.
WaveCrest offers two services:
outreach to prevent shelter and
short-term shelter. The shelter
offers each child education and
counseling: group, family and/or
individual counseling. Case
management (the coordinating
and monitoring of services) and
referral services (other agencies
in the community that may be
able to help you with the child)
are also a part of the WaveCrest
program.
For more information about
the Community Collaborative
Council meetings, please call
Sharon Vinson Facilitator for
the Shared Services Network of
Okeechobee (863) 462-5000 Ext.
257.

Nichols to brief officers


Bill Nichols, director of the
Highlands County Emergency
Management, will brief mem-
bers of the local chapter of the
Military Officers Association of
America (MOAA) on disaster
preparedness Saturday morning,
Sept. 9, at the Candlelight
Restaurant of the Sebring N'
Lake Golf and Country Club.
MOAA members will receive
up-to-date information on
actions that have been taken for
the current hurricane season by
local area governments and
what the average resident can
do to survive any major disasters
that threaten the local area.
In 2001, Mr. Nichols was
selected by county officials to
head up the Emergency Man-
agement Division. His responsi-
bilities now include emergency
and disaster related activities
which include preparedness,
response, site-mitigations,

ice. He is a graduate of the Uni-
versity of South Florida with a
bachelor's degree in business
management and holds state
certifications as a firefighter,
licensed paramedic and building
contractor.
"As we are now in the Florida
hurricane season, Mr. Nichols'
briefing should be of paramount
interest to all MOAA members
and their families," explained
retired Air Force Colonel Roy P.
Whitton, Lake Placid, MOAA
chapter first vice-president.
Following Mr. Nichols' pres-
entation, the MOAA Chapter will
hold its monthly board of direc-
tors meeting with the forthcom-
ing luncheon honoring the six
Junior ROTC unit leaders head-
ing the agenda.
All MOAA members, their
spouses and guests are wel-
come to attend this monthly
briefing and board meeting. It
was explained that this is strictly
a coffee an' event and there is no
charge.


For those wishing more infor-
mation on the meeting, one may
call Colonel Whitton at (863)
465-7048.
