FEMA evicting local family


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
It appears that a family in
Okeechobee living in a Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) trailer could soon be out
on the street with nowhere to go.
Betty Montain, 70, her daugh-
ter Diann Scott and great- grand-
daughter Mokie Jones, 4, and
their dog and cat have been living
in a FEMA trailer since Thanksgiv-
ing 2004, when their home was


destroyed by the hurricanes.
For the first 18 months, they
lived rent free with the under-
standing that after 18 months,
they would have to pay rent
based on their income level. They
were given no indication at that
time that there would be a time
limit on the rental.
Starting with the 19th month,
they have been paying $269.40 a
month rent.
Last year they put their name
on a list to bid for the right to buy


the trailer.
Recently they received notifi-
cation from FEMA by regular mail
and then by certified mail that
they would have to be out of the
trailer by Sept. 26.
There was a delay in finding a
contractor to build a new house
on their lot. However, construc-
tion is now well under way and
should be completed by the end
of the year. The construction is
being financed by insurance
money and Hurricane Housing


Recovery Program funds.
County administrator George
Long, who is their neighbor,
came to the rescue. Mr. Long sent
a letter to FEMA requesting an
extension of the lease until Jan. 1,
2007.
Mr. Long said he touched base
with City of Okeechobee Mayor
Jiin Kirk since the Montain family
lives in the city. He said the mayor
suggested he continue to pursue
the situation since he was aware
of the facts.


Mr. Long's letter, dated Sept. 1,
was faxed and mailed to FEMA.
Mr. Long said that as of Monday,
Sept. 11, he had received no
reply.
However, he was optimistic
about the outcome.
"I expect FEMA will do the
right thing in the end,"Mr. Long
said.
He added that FEMA couldn't
make a "one size fits all determi-

Okeechobee News
Tropical.Depression Ernesto
brought at least one good thing
to Okeechobee the day after
the storm hit, Pete Keogh began
his duties as director of the
Okeechobee County Agri-Civic
center.
Mr. Keogh replaces former
director John Mazola, who is
now director of the Albany Civic
Center in Albany, Ga.
Larry Davis, temporary
supervisor of operations at the
facility, will be working with Mr.
Keogh to familiarize him with
the operation of the facility.
Mr. Keogh said he has not
been onboard long enough to
assess the situation.
The budget contains funding
for four personnel at the facility,
but county administrator
George Long, who hired Mr.
Keogh, said he would be meet-
ing with Mr. Keogh in the next
few days to assess actual cur-
rent manpower needs.
Mr. Long said he hired Mr.
Keogh out of a field of about 15
applicants because he seemed
the best choice at the time. Mr.
Long said Mr. Keogh's familiari-
ty with the area would be an
asset.


For the last nine years, Mr.
Keogh was director of parks
and recreation for St. Lucie
County. Before that, he was
with the Cit\ of Coral Springs for
23 years.
In St. Lucie County, Mr.
Keogh supervised a staff of 181
people and was responsible for
22 miles of oceanfront, three'
swimming pools, one golf
course, several sports complex-
es, three museums, a commu-
nity center, the St. Lucie Civic
Center and two football stadi-
ums. He was also responsible
for the St. Lucie Fairgrounds and
all public properties.
"This is an opportunity to do
it one more time," Mr. Keogh
replied when asked why he
came to Okeechobee.
He noted that he had seen
the City of Coral Springs grow
tremendously during his time
there.
."I'm a steward of this facili-
ty," Mr. Keogh said.
He sees his duty as giving
option as to its use.
Many years ago, as he was
passing through Okeechobee,
Mr. Keogh decided he wanted
to retire here. Little did he know
at the time that his last job
before retirement would proba-
bly be in Okeechobee.


"You built a Cadillac," he
said of the agri-civic center.
As a member of the design
team of the St. Lucie County
Fairgrounds, he visited several
other such facilities, so he has a
good frame of reference.
Mr. Keogh called it a facility
built with the future in mind. He
said the land was bought before
land prices went up and it was
built before the cost of labor
and materials went up.
"Somebody had some vision
here," he asserted. "The impact
of this facility might not be fully
realized for several years to
come."
Mr. Keogh said the location
was gteat with entrances off
S.R. 70 and S.R. 710. The pro-
posed four-lane project for S.R.
70 should bring more traffic
from the coast to the local facili-
ty.
Even though he is a member
of the cattlemen's association,
Mr. Keogh would not speculate
on that organization's rodeo
coming to his facility.
He said seating in the arena
could be expanded from the
present 2,500 to 5,000 without
giving up much competition

After following up on a sus-
picious vehicle complaint, an
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) deputy arrested
a local man on drug charges
and confiscated over $1,000
cash.
The man, Beau Asher
Emley, had just been arrested,
on similar charges a little over a
month ago. OCSO records indi-
cated he was arrested Aug. 6
and booked into the Okee-
chobee Counry Jl. under a
bond of $65,ii0i. Those same,
records indicate that he posted
a cash bond of $6,500, as well
as $65,000 in collateral.
Emley was arrested again
on Sept. 9 by OCSO Deputy


Kristin Gray. This time he was
charged with the felonies of
possession of cocaine with
intent to sell and tampering
with physi-
cal evidence.
Emley, 23,

Mary Montain (left), her daughter, Diann Scott (right) and her
great-granddaughter Mokie Jones, 4, stand in front of their
FEMA trailer. On the other side of the trailer their new home
is going up and should be completed by the end of the year.
They have received letters from FEMA stating they must be
out of their trailer by Sept. 26 and they are requesting a four-
month extension until their house is completed.

nation" and must deal with each
situation on a case-by-case basis.
"We're doing everything we
can to see that it's dealt with in the
right way," he said.
The FEMA letters cited the
Stafford Act as their authority for
the eviction. Mr. Long said he
researched the Stafford Act and
that according to his interpreta-
tion, FEMA could rent a trailer to
its occupants if no permanent
housing is available or a trailer
could be sold to its occupants if
no permanent housing is avail-
able.
'"The whole thing is ludi-
crous," he added.
However, Ann Decker of U. S.
Representative Mark Foley's office
:was not so optimistic.
"If I have worked on one of
these, I have worked on 50," she
said.
She stated that originally the
* trailers were provided for 18
months. Then, because of subse-
quent storms, the time limit was
extended six months by presiden-
tial decree. After that time, she
said FEMA would not grant an
* extension.
She did say that the occupants


have the option to buy their trail-
er. However, Ms. Decker was not
aware of any FEMA clients who
bought their trailers. In some
cases, the price would be beyond
their means.
"We can't find a place to live
we can afford," Ms. Montain said.
At first the Montain family left
and moved to Ms. Scott's sister's
house. However, that situation
was not good due to the fact that
Ms. Scott's brother-in-law is in
poor health.
"You come on back home and
I'll take care of it," Mr. Long said.
He advised them to continue
paying rent.
"It's ridiculous, they can do
this," Ms. Scott said.
Ms. Montain is on Social Secu-
rity and her daughter is restaurant
manager.
They are willing to pay a fair
rental price or to buy the trailer if
the price is reasonable.
She said if their trailer is repos-
sessed it would go to the West
Palm Beach airport where FEMA
would pay a storage fee, instead
of collecting rent from them.
Telephone calls to FEMA were
not been returned by newspaper
deadline.

lends itself to expansion of seat-

Among other ideas for the
facility, Mr. Keogh wants to
explore different circuit events.
He said individual promoters of
such events like a multiple venue.
An event promoter could come
south down I- 75 to Tampa, set up
an event in Tampa and then go on
to Arcadia before setting up in
Okeechobee and going on to the
St. Lucie County Fairgrounds
before hitting 1-95 to go back
north.

Mr. Keogh is especially proud
of the facility's sound system. He

ty's facility. Mr. Keogh recom-

with driving under the influence

issued by the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office was based on an
Aug. 21 incident.
His bond on that charge was
$500. Jail records indicate he has
since posted bond on these most
recent charges and has been
released.
Deputy Gray responded to a
suspicious vehicle call shortly
after 3 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9.
After finding the vehicle a
white Chevrolet Tahoe Deputy
Gray saw a man getting out of the
SUV on the passenger's side.
When the man saw her, he fled
the area on foot, she stated in her
arrest report.
Two other OCSO units then
responded to the scene, but
Deputy Gray found the man -
later identified as Emley hiding
in some tall grass about two
blocks from the original scene.
As she walked around Emley's
vehicle she saw a substance in
plain sight that she suspected was
cocaine.

barn.
In addition, the sound system
has an FM band. People in route
to the facility can pick up the
sound system on their car radios.
He said the FM band could
also come in handy for firework
shows. There is a perfect area in
the back of the facility for fire-
works. Mr. Keogh said people
could watch fireworks from their
tailgates while listening to accom-
panying music on their radios.
Instead of competing with
each other, he said his facility and
the St. Lucie County Fairgrounds
would compliment each other.
Mr. Keogh said he could draw
on 33 years worth of resources
and he talked of using volunteers
to do such things as reception
duties, ushering and crowd con-
trol. ,
"It can be done," he said of the
possibility of.having a lair next
year.
He is planning on working
with the Okeechobee County
Tourist Development Council and
seeking to attract religious, cultur-
al and other non-profit events.
His wife, Rosalee, is a girls' vol-
leyball coach at Fort Pierce West-
wood High School. They have
two grown children who live in
Georgia. When school is out, the
Keoghs plan on moving to Okee-
chobee.


She also found $1,130 in the
man's pants pockets.
Deputy Gray indicated on her
arrest affidavit that Emley has no
occupation.
More suspected cocaine was
found on Emley's back and but-
tocks, wrote Deputy Gray.
Deputy Gray said the suspect-
ed Substances were field tested
and indicated a positive result for
the presence of cocaine.
She stated in her report the
suspected cocaine weighed 5.4
grams.
According to QCSO Lieutenant
William Markham, the suspected
cocaine had an estimated street
value of $300.
Lt. Markham said Emley was
arrested on Aug. 6 when he was
found in a residential area
allegedly passed out behind the
wheel of his car. At that time he
was charged with the felonies of
possession of cocaine, posses-
sion of methamphetamine and
possession of a controlled sub-
stance without a valid prescrip-
tion. He was also charged with
the misdemeanors of possession
of marijuana under 20 grams and
possession of drug paraphernalia
(four counts), added the OCSO
lieutenant.

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 the proper authorities.
Survey forms are available at the Main Street website www.main-
streetokeechobee.com; or, by contacting Executive Director Lydia
Jean Williams at (863) 357-MAIN.

Fun with senses at Seminole


SES Students of the Week


Studies prove that students
who have parents and families
who are actively involved in their
children's education perform bet-
ter in school. These students con-
sistently score higher on standard-
ized tests and receive good grades
in class.
One of our goals this year is to
increase parental involvement at
Seminole Elementary School by
continuing to:
1. Effectively form school-to-
home and home-to-school com-
munications with all families each
year about school programs and
their children's progress.
2. Provide information and
ideas to families about how to help
students at home with homework
and other curricular-related activi-
ties, decisions, and planning.
3. Include parents in school
decisions; develop parent leaders,
and representatives.
4. Help all families establish
home environments to support
children as students.
5. Recruit and organize parent
help and support.
Your time and talents are wel-
come at Seminole Elementary
School. We invite you come to our
school and volunteer. Help. us
make a difference in the lives of all
students. Come in and join us on
in the cafeteria on Sept. 13th from
9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. for avol-
unteer orientation.
Thank you for taking an active
role in the education of young chil-
dren by volunteering at Seminole
Elementary School. We appreciate
your dedication to making our
school more successful.
Kindergarten
The Kindergarten students have
enjoyed learning about the senses.
For Fun Friday the students learned
about the sense of taste when they
went to Mrs. Johnson's class. After
the students tasted M&M's and
Skittles, they graphed to see which
one was liked best. Skittles won-
two out of three times. The stu-


dents also graphed and counted
what colors each received. When
visiting Mrs. Jor-
dan's class, the
students used
the sense of
hearing to play
a Listening
Bingo game. The
students identified dif-
ferent sounds that they heard and
marked the spaces on the Bingo
cards. In Miss Seney's class the stu-
dents used the sense of sight to
identify objects by seeing just a por-
tion of the object. Tana Hoban's
book "Look" was enjoyed by all.
Then the students continued to use
their eyes as they looked for shapes
hidden in a picture. This was a
great day for the students, especial-
ly because they got to know the
other teachers a little bit better.
In Mrs. Peterson's class, the chil-
dren are learning the classroom
rules. They are learning letters Mm
and Ss. In Math they are learning to
sort. The students of the week have
been Jason Zuniga and Briana
Tagle. Happy Birthday goes to
Alberto Garcia and Anthony Betan-
curt. They are both five years old.
Mrs. Jordan's class is excited
about reading. These students met
their goal of reading ten books at
home during the month of August:
Kaitlyn Bell, Nathan Palmer,
Kalysta Fowler, Rylee Kirkey, Layne
Vargas, Damon Thomas, Wesley
McClanahan, Satie Rico, Joel
Treadway, Kyle Palmismo, and
Margaret Santamarina. Congratula-
tions Readers! The students like it
when the sharing bag goes home
with a reading buddy. Chester the
raccoon played ball with Kaitlyn
and read the book with Satie at din-
ner. Like Kyle, Chester loves his
mom. Joel was a little scared of
school just like Chester was.
First
Students in Mrs.O'Bannon's
class have been practicing their
sight words and have been review-
ing the short vowel sounds by


singing the Sing Spell Read and
Write Song and reading them in
words. In math they are learning
the basic addition and subtraction
facts through ten. They are com-
pleting a writing book about them-
selves. They are doing a wonderful

in developing responsibility in their
children!
In Mrs. Yeilding's first grade
class the students are excited about
learning to read, and are logging in
steps for the "100 Book Challenge"
every day. This class enjoyed a visit
from "Mrs. Lynne" Schwartz who
read the book "Boom Chick-a
Boom Boom" and brought in a real
coconut for the students to see and
taste. Thankyou, Mrs. Lynne!
Special areas
"Round Up A Good Book" is the
RIF theme in the Media Center.
From Sept. first eighth, students
are able to preview the many excit-
ing and interesting books, select a
book, and bookmarker. Reading is
Fundamental is a great program
that encourages reading by provid-
ing a free book to each student in
the school. Also, Ms. Kenney has
been introducing the various gen-
res, beginning with the two largest
categories...fiction and nonfiction.
Students will be observing various
examples of each and then looking
at specific areas such as, poetry,
adventure, myth, humor, and sci-
ence fiction, just to name a few.
In art, Mrs. Waldron is teaching
students that "fingers" are the true
stars of pastel painting. The stu-
dents are learning about warm col-
ors by utilizing a tray of pastels in
colors of light and dark brown, red,
yellow, and orange. Each student
has a 9 x 12 white paper. Students
learn to put the background on
first, then to add the trees and fence
on top of the background. Students
learn that by blending colors into
the background, it forms a realistic
landscape.

Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Mary Montain (left), her daughter, Diann Scott (right) and her
great-granddaughter Mokie Jones, 4, stand in front of their
FEMA trailer. On the other side of the trailer their new home
Is going up and should be completed by the end of the year.
They have received letters from FEMA stating they must be
out of their trailer by Sept. 26 and they are requesting a four-
month extension until their house is completed.

nation" and must deal with each
situaUon on a case-by-case basis.
' "We're doing everything we
can to see that it's deallt with in the
right way," he said.
The FEMA letters cited the
Stafford Act as their authority for
the eviction. Mr Long said he
researched the Stafford Act and
that according to his interpreta-
tion, FEMA could rent a trailer to
its occupants if no permanent-
ljousing is available or a trailer
could be sold to its occupants if
no permanent housing is avail-
able.
o "The whole thing is ludi-
drous," he added.
However, Ann Decker of U. S.
Representative Mark Foley's office
was not so optimistic.
, "If I have w worked on one of
these, I have worked on 50," she
said.
She stated that originally the
trailers were provided for 18
months. Then, because of subse-
quent storms, the time limit was
extended si\ months by presiden-
tial decree. After that time, she
said FEMA would not grant an,
extension.
She did say that the occupants


woo


have the option to buy their trail-
er. However, Ms. Decker was not
aware of any FEMA clients who
bought their trailers. In some
cases, the price would be beyond
their means.
"We can't find a place to live
we can afford," Ms. Montain said.
At first the Montain family left
and moved to Ms. Scott's sister's
house. However,- that situation
was not good due to the fact that
Ms. Scott's brother-in-law is in
poor health.
"You come on back home and
I'll take care of it," Mr. Long said.
He advised them to continue-
paying rent. . ...
"It's ridiculous, they can do
this," Ms. Scott said.
Ms. Montain is on Social: Secu-
rity and her daughter is restaurant
manager.
They are willing to pay a fair
rental price or to buy the trailer if
the price is reasonable.
She said if their trailer is repos-
sessed it would go to the West
Palm Beach airport where FEMA
would pay a storage fee, instead
of collecting rent from them.
Telephone calls to FEMA were'
not been returned by newspaper
deadline.

lends itself to expansion of seat-

Among other ideas for the
facility, Mr. Keogh wants to
explore different circuit events.
He said individual promoters of-
such events like a multiple venue.
An event promoter could come
south down 1- 75 to Tampa, set up
an event in Tampa and then go on
to Arcadia before setting up in
Okeechobee and going on to the
St. Lucie County Fairgrounds"
before hitting 1-95 to go back
north.
Mr. Keogh talked of attracting
such events as RV shows, boat
shows and car shows. He consid-
ers the large paved parking area
an asset.
Mr. Keogh is especially proud
of the facility's sound system. He
was on the St. Lucie County Fair-
grounds advisory committee
when Commissioner John Abney
led a contingent from Okee-
chobee to study St. Lucie Coun-
ty's facility. Mr. Keogh.recom-,

Charges

County warrant charging him
with driving under the influence
of alcohol or drugs. The warrant
issued by the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office \was based on an
Aug. 21 incident.
His bond on that charge was,
$500. Jail records indicate he has
since posted bond on these most
recent charges and has been
released.
Deputy Gray responded to a,
suspicious vehicle call shortly
after 3 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9.
After finding the vehicle--- a
white Chevrolet Tahoe Deputy
Gray saw a man getting out of the
SUV on the passenger's side.
When the man saw her, he fled
the area on fool, she stated in her
arrest report.
Two other OCSO units then
responded to the scene, but
.Deputy Gray found the man --
later identified as Emley-- hiding
in some tall grass about two
blocks from the original scene.
As she walked around Emley's
vehicle she saw a substance in
plain sight that she suspected was
cocaine.


barn.
In addition, the sound system
has an FM band. People in route
to the facility can pick up the
sound system on their car radios.'
He said the FM band could
also come in handy for firework
shows. There is a perfect area in
the back of the facility for fire-
works./Mr. Keogh said people
could watch fireworks from their
tailgates while listening to accom-
panying music on their radios.
Instead of competing with
each other, he said his facility and
the St. Lucie County Fairgrounds
would compliment each other.
Mr. Keogh said he could draw
on 33 years worth of resources
and he talked of using volunteers
to do such things as reception
duties, ushering and crowd con-
trol. .
"It can be done," he said of the
possibility of having a fair next
year.
He is planning on working
with the Okeechobee County
Tourist Development Council and
seeking to attract religious, cultur-
al and other non-profit events.
His wife, Rosalee, is a girls' vol-
leyball coach at Fort Pierce West-
wood High School. They have
two grown children who live in
Georgia. When school is out, the
Keoghs plan on moving to Okee-
chobee.


She also found $1,130 in the
man's pants pockets.
Deputy Gray indicated on her
arrest affidavit that Emley has no
occupation.
More suspected cocaine was
found on Emley's back and but-
tocks, wrote Deputy Gray.
Deputy Gray said the suspect-
ed substances were field tested
and indicated a positive result for
the presence of cocaine.
- She stated in her report the
suspected cocaine weighed 5.4
grams.
According to OCSO Lieutenant
\\illiam Markham, the suspected
cocaine had an estimated street
value of $300.
Lt. Markham said Emley was
arrestedon Aug. 6 when he was
found in a residential area
allegedly passed out behind the
wheel of his car. At that time he
was charged with the felonies of
possession of cocaine, posses-
sion of methamphetamine and
possession of a controlled sub-
stance without a valid prescrip-
tion. He was also charged with
the misdemeanors of possession
of marijuana under 20 grams and
possession of drug paraphernalia
(four counts), added the QCSO
lieutenant.

Brahmans beat



Dragons, 38-0


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
'Ken Fitton held up some of the bass that earned him and
his partner Mark Brader (not pictured) first place and
$1,500 at Sunday's Okee-Tantie Team Trail tournament.
The team brought five fish weighing a total of 24,22 Ibs. to
the scale to claim the win.


The Brahmans traveled to
Lake Placid to take on the Drag-
ons at Roger Scarborough Memo-
rial Stadium. They returned to
Okeechobee with a 38-0 win
under their belts.
The Brahmans were led by
sophomore Lonnie Pryor who
had 14 carries for 207 yards, two-
touchdowns in the second quar-
ter and 89 punt-return yards.
Timmy Williams started the
scoring blitz for the Brahmans'
with a 32-yard run into the end
zone and then another touch-
down late in the first quarter.


Pryor added an additional two
touchdowns to the Brahman
score in the second quarter with
79 and 44-yard runs.
Brahman quarterback Garrett
Madrigal put two more touch-
downs on the board with passes
to James Shanks in the second
half.
The Brahmans will host John
Carroll High School at Brahman
Stadium on Friday, Sept. 15. Kick-
off is set for 7:30 p.m. Friday is
also Spirit Night at Brahman Stadi-
um. Make sure to wear your pur-
ple and gold.

Fitton, Brader win


Team Trail tourney


Ken Fitton and Mark Brader

Thirty-six boats left Okee-
Tantie at safe light Sunday morn-
ing to participate in the Okee-
Tantie Team Trail September
tournament. All but four boats
returned with fish in their wells.
Justin Schwier and Juan Ruiz
finished in second place with
23.27 lbs. One of their fish, a 9.37
lb. beauty, earned them the sec-
ond big bass award for the day.
This team is currently tied for


third place with the team of
Gregg Norling and Gerry Cali-'
fano in the overall standings with
503 points.
The team of Steve Fairtrace
.and Curtis Lewis hooked third
place with 20.46 lbs. of bass,
placing them in seventh place in
the overall standings with 490
points.
Michael Holland and Kermit
Russell finished the day in fourth
placewith 19 lbs. of fish.
Pat Dravo and Terry Frisenda
took big fish honors with a 9.47
lb. lunker.
The Okee-Tantie Team Trail
will hold their next tournament
on Sunday, Oct. 22 at the main,

Foster parents
desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
need of people \willing to provide
foster children a normal family life
with nutritious meals, good daily
care and a stimulating environ-
ment. Foster parents may be mar-
ried, di% orced or single. Their most
important characteristic is that
they are caring individuals who
understand the problems and
needs of foster children. Please
contact Karissa 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 Aux-
iliary has served as the civilian,
non-military component of the
Coast Guard. Today, the 33,000 vol-
unteer men and women of the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary are
active on the waterways and class-
rooms in over 2,000 cities and
towns across the nation. Each
year, Auxiliarists (folks just like
you) save almost 500 lives, assist
some 15,000 boaters in distress,
conduct more the 150,000 cour-
tesy safety examinations of recre-
ation 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.
Food Pantry

Okeechobee Presbyterian
Church Food Pantry is open again.
We are located at 312 N. Parrott

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-
ment that is illegal or con-
sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-
ing money ahead of time,
you check with the Better
Business Bureau at
772-878-2010 for previous
complaints.
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.
