School board OKs budget


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In passing their $75.8 million
spending plan Thursday, the
Okeechobee County School
Board also adopted a new millage
rate that is less than last year's.
The board also discussed
impact fees and approval of an
interlocal agreement on concur-
rency at their Sept. 7 meeting.
In passing their new budget the
board adopted 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 bil-
lion since last year.
One mill equals $1 for every
$1,000 of assessed value.
The board unanimously
passed the new millage rate in
spite of the concerns of Mark Lapp
who represents CFS Properties,
Inc., and CHL Holdings, Inc. -


property owners in the Viking.
Mr. Lapp urged a larger
decrease in the millage rate to off-
set the increased property values.
"A tax increase is a tax
increase," he noted, whether it
comes from increased millage or
increased property values.
He said his client's property
taxes would double from $15,000
to $30,000 because the property
value appreciated from $3.2 mil-
lion to $3.8 million. Mr. Lapp said
the property was not selling and.


Brah hal NES teachers and students face-off


Okeechobee News/Chauna Agullar
The teachers were victorious over the Fifth Grade All-Stars at North Elementary in the
seventh annual Brahma Ball Tournament, winning 51-37, on Friday, Sept. 8. The tourna-
ment was hosted by physical education-teachers -Mrs. -Pti Canevari and Mrs. Pam
Matthews.


his clients might have to sell off
land at reduced prices to pay the
taxes.
He expressed fear that the
increase in taxes would depress
real estate values and added that
vacant land does not generate stu-
dents.
This proposed millage rate is
expected to bring in $16.8 million,
as compared to the 2005-06 budg-
ets' tax receipts of $ I 4 million.
The balance of the $75. 8 mil-
lion budget \\ill come from federal


and state sources, including the
Florida Lottery.
The budget breaks down into
$53.5 million in the general fund,
$294,000 lor debt service and capi-
tol projects \\ill receive $12 mil-
lion. The food service budget is
$3.8 million, while funds for feder-
al programs total $6.2 million
The budget will allocate about
$7,700 per student and will

Civil Air Patrol offers free flights


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Young people between the
ages of 8 and 17 who would like
to learn more about aviation
are invited to the Okeechobee
County Airport on Saturday,
Sept. 16, for a free airplane
flight.
The flight is sponsored by
the Okeechobee squadron of
the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) in con-
nection with the North Palm
Beach chapter of the Experi-
mental Aircraft Association.
They will be able to accom-
modate 40 flyers. Anyone inter-
ested can come to the airport,
located at 2800 N.W. 20th Trail,
between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m.
that morning to register. How-
ever, John Clark of the Okee-
chobee squadron said it would
be better to call him before that
time at (561) 818-2506.
Mr. Clark, who holds the
rank of first lieutenant in the
CAP, serves as public affairs offi-
cer for the Okeechobee


squadron.
Mr. Clark stressed that par-
ents must be present at the air-
port. They cannot drop off their
children and leave them. Par-
ents must also'sign a release.
"To serve Florida by per-
forming homeland security and
humanitarian missions for our
state; develop our state's youth
and educate our citizens on the
importance of air and space
power," is the mission state-
ment of the Florida Wing of
CAP as cited on the organiza-
tion's web site.
The organization, which is
an auxiliary of the U.S. Air
Force, promotes core values of
integrity, citizenship, excel-
lence, innovation and compe-
tence.
"Hopefully, these values can
be instilled into young cadets
and they will take them into
life," stated Lt. Clark.
Cadet CAP members must
be between the ages of 8 and
21. Adult members serve as
officers.


Lt. Clark said CAP is strong
on education and leadership
and emphasizes good grades in
school.
Cadets can go into military
school encampments such as
weather school or pilot train-
ing, to see what the Air Force is
like.
The Okeechobee squadron
has about 15 adult members
and about a dozen cadets. They
meet Tuesday evenings at the
airport from 6:30 until 9 p.m.
According to Lt. Clark, the
CAP has three objectives -- the
cadet program, aorepspace
program and emergency serv-
ice.
Cadets are eligible for schol-
arships and funds are available
for them to train for a pilot's
license.
If the county requests it, a
CAP squadron can be activated
to help in an emergency situa-
tion. They can be involved in
everything except police activi-

Okeechobee News
The National Honor Society
and National Beta Club joint cam-
pus clean-up that was previously
planed to take place at Okee-
chobee High School on Sept. 9 has
been rescheduled for the follow-.
ing week on Sept. 16.
The change comes after a deci-
sion on the part of the Beta Club
officers on Wednesday. They
decided that notice on the
S- Wednesday before a clean-up
would be too short to allow mem-
-- bers to make time to help. The
original notice was supposed to
have been given on Aug. 29, but
the meeting was canceled due to
the threat of Tropical Storm
Ernesto.
The campus clean-up is held.
jointly by the Okeechobee High
School chapters of the National
Beta Club and the National Honor
- Society. Members of these two
S__ organizations %\ill be putting forth


their best efforts to beautify the
campus of the high school while
gaining the volunteer hours that
most scholarships require.
In past clean-ups, students
have provided services to the high
school spanning from simply pick-
ing up trash to putting in a new
walkway or re-mulching the
flowerbeds in the common area of
the school. The projects for the
students to perform during this
month's clean-up have yet to be
decided on.
These two organizations have
been doing joint clean ups for a
"long time," according to sponsor
of the National Honor Society,
Wendy Riester. These clean-ups,
on average, have around 20 stu-
dents that give up their Saturday
morning to keep their school look-
ing nice.
.Whereas the National Honor
Society only holds one or two
clean-ups a year, the Beta Club
generally does a few clean-ups
each year.

trained as first responders.
The county's emergency oper-
ations manager, Gene O'Neill,
has been active in the Okee-


chobee squadron and has served
as deputy commander and leader
of the cadets. He is anticipating
using trained CAP members to
help out when the emergency
operations center is activated and
to do windshield damage assess-
ments.


Tax forms for ag exemptions available
OKEECHOBEE As a service to the agricultural community,
the Okeechobee County Farm Bureau has the tax exemption cer-
tificates for certain power farm equipment purchases.
The purchaser's tax exemption certificate for electricity used
directly and exclusively in production or processing of agricultur-
al 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 agricultur-
al producer.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Tay-
lor 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 Conserva-
tion 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 pro-
peller 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 prioritiz-
ing projects that will help the business community direct issues
of concern to the proper authorities.
Survey forms are available at the Main Street website
wi\.mn-ainstreelokeechobee.com; or, by contacting Executive
Director Lydia Jean Williams at 1863) 357-MAIN.

WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
'Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hyrrr
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford 10 buy a home equal in price to
SIhree times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford 10 pay for a home will depend on six
factors:







O Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

0 Hymer says your housing expense-to-incdme ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal arid
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
0 The sum of these costs is referred to as OPIT1.6 Monthly homeownersO association
dues, if youOre purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
0 Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
0 Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

The Okeechobee News, Saturday, September 9, 2006 U


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Rev. Bruce Simpson
Senior pastor, First United
Methodist Church
I grew up between to large
farms, just outside of Athens,
Georgia. My dad owned one acre
in the middle. The farmer to the
right had a dairy and raised cot-
ton. The farmer to the left raised
hogs, chickens, cattle, and a vari-
ety of vegetables.
One day, my brother Brent
wandered away from home. He
was about six years old. After
looking throughout the house,
mother called the neighbors to
see if they had seen him. Our
neighbor Duane started over to
our house to help with the search.
His eyes saw something very spe-


cial in the pasture in front of our
house. Our boxer, Duchess, and
Brent were standing at the edge of
the pond. He watched Duchess
knock Brent down every time he
would move toward the water.
Brent was too young to realize
that getting into the pond was
dangerous. But our loyal dog,
Duchess, had the awareness that
Brent was in danger.
The modern world is filled
with many dangers. Before we
know it, we have stepped into sit-
uations that are not healthy or
good. It is impossible to survive in
this world without some help
from above. The Bible was given
to assist us through life. .
In the following passage, Paul
explained the depth of The Bible.


No qualifications needed


'All Scripture is God-breathed and
is useful for teaching, rebuking,
correcting and training in right-
eousness", II Timothy 3: 16 (NIV)
In the Bible, we can learn from
someone else's' mistakes, as well
as learn from someone else's
right decisions. In the same way,
Duchess saw the danger and
steered Brent away from it. The
Bible knows the danger of certain
decisions and steers us away from
them. For those who are reading
this article and life is very hard for
you at this moment, the Bible says
that God loves you and God wants
you to be His son or daughter. As
you take time to read your Bible,
listen to God's words of love,
hope, and forgiveness.


.Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda


Peace Lutheran Church reminds us that qualifications are not necessary to serve God.

Race Car Bed
Do-it-yourselfers will have the little ones racing off
to sleep with this sleek race car bed project. Built
mostly from plywood, it's designed to be inexpen-
sive, sturdy and easy to build-in fact, it's a fun pro-
ject for parents and kids to build together.
The completed race car bed measures 86 inches
long by 48 inches wide by 20 inches tall, although
two sets of specifications allow it to be built for
either a junior or twin-size mattress.
The plan includes step-by-step instructions with
photos, full-size traceable patterns, a materials list
and more.
