EMT solicitation
is telephone seam
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has
recently been notified by
area residents that a group
called Florida EMTs & Para-
medics is. soliciting money
over the telephone.
This is not a local organi-
zation, and could possibly be
based in Canada.
Callers are asking for
donations supposedly to be
used for-training and equip-
ment.
If contacted by the group,
do not donate money.
Fund solicitors
make false claims
Several Okeechobee busi-
nesses have recently report-
,,,. ed that they were solicited
for contributions by a person
falsely claiming to represent
Indian River Community Col-
lege (IRCC).
"This person is apparently
using the names of Family
Center, Friends Provision
Center and IRCC to solicit
contributions. IRCC is not
affiliated in any way with
these groups and is not
involved in soliciting these
types of contributions," said
Sam Smith, provost of IRCC's
Dixon Hendry Campus.
Okeechobee residents
who are approached for con-
tributions or have questions
should contact the Dixon
Hendry Campus at (863)
824-6000.

Gilbert Theater: Matinees


was our window on the world


By MaryAnn Morris
Saturday afternoons for the
children of Okeechobee meant
just one thing: going to the
Gilbert Theater on Park Avenue
for the Saturday matinee. This is
a tradition I can identify with
because Saturday matinees fea-
tured large in my growing up as
well.
"It was our window on the
world," said Betty Williamson.
"I remember watching the
Three Stooges. We lived about a
mile from the theater, so I never
did get to sit. By the time I got
there, the theater was always
full of town kids. I made my
mind up that one time I'd get to


Okeechobee

sit, but I never did. It was worth
standing to have that fun with
all your friends every Saturday."
Merle Hendry moved here
from Ft. Pierce when she was


16 and liked that everyone was
everyone's friend.
"No matter: seniors were
friends with freshmen. It just
didn't matter. I thought that was
nice," she said. "I remember
going to the Gilbert Theater, the
man who took the tickets name
was Honey Lawson. What I
remember is the serial movies:
one Saturday the cowboy was
hanging off the cliff when it
ended and you'd have to come
back the next week to see what
happened. There he'd be,
miraculously back up on the
cliff again.
See History Page 2


Every year, at Gilbert Theater's Christmas show, there would be
a drawing for a new Chevrolet. They would call a child up from
the audience to draw the winning ticket.

History

Continued From Page 1
"I worked for Gilbert and the
night before the big Christmas
show, we'd bag up candy, nuts
and an orange for each one of the
children."
"We'd take back pop bottles
for two cents each and get
enough money for the show,
which I think was ten cents then
and maybe a bag of popcorn, that
was five cents," recalled Dozier
Clements. "There were news-
reels, particularly during World
War II and cartoons. A lot of west-
ern movies, and scary movies! I
hid my eyes during the scary
parts!"
Gil Culbreth owned Gilbert
Chevrolet as well as the theater,
an appliance store and another
service station/store toward the
west side of town.
"Every year he'd give away a
car," Mr. Clements recalled. He'd
give so many tickets when you
bought anything from him and
they collected the tickets in a bar-
rel. Then at the big Christmas
show in the theater, they'd call

for each child.

and they'd pick the winning tick-

Judge Bill Hendry lived just
two blocks away, a block west of
where John Cassels' office is now
and he went often.


You wondered, how did they
'manage to shoot that pistol 20
times and not have to reload?" he
chuckled. "The newsreels were
about fifteen minutes or so.
Called "Path-A-News" and other
than the radio that was all the


"I really liked the westerns. nes you got.".


"People from the out-lying
areas would come to town on
Saturday to do their shopping in
the morning and then go to the
movies in the afternoon. I
remember that a lot of the Indians
went. The last thing, people'd, is
get a big block of ice and tie it
onto the bumper of their car to
take home."
"One of my buddies ran the
projector," he continued. "Some-
times I'd get to go up and watch h
him" run the machines. There
were twO of them, so that he'd
have the film ready to go on the
second so that there wouldn't be
a break when the first one ran out..
These were big machines: arc
light projectors they were called.
"The floor of the theater
sloped down to the screen Some-
times kids would roll their pop
bottles, thump, thump, slowly
thump, thump all the way down.
Then one of the grown-ups or Mr.
Lawson would tell them to cut it
out. They never did catch anyone
though!"
If anyone else has a story they
would like to share, give MaryAnn

First wave of yearbook School Menu


sales to hit OHS


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
The first 2006-2007 yearbook
sale for Okeechobee High School
will begin on Sept. 25 and follow
through to
This will
bean oppor- -" r ,.
tunity for all --
of the stu-
dents to pre-order their yearbook
at a reduced price of $35. Also
available for those members of the
community that missed out on
purchasing previous issues of the
book, there will be books available
dating back through 2004.
"There are a few advantage of
ordering early," said Ms. Vanessa
Van Camp, OHS yearbook advisor.
"First people that buy now will
save $10. The usual yearbook cost
$45, right now it's only $35."
"Also," adds Ms. Van Camp.


"Students that order now will get
out of class at the end of the year
for the Yearbook Jam. The Jam
allows students to be among the
first to receive their books. They
will be the first to see the finished
product and be allotted time to
have their friends sign them."
Two dedicated groups of stu-
dents at OHS put the book togeth-
er. Besides writing the articles that
will appear in this year's book,
these students are also responsible
for the layout of the pages and tak-
ing the majority of the photographs
that will appear. Overseeing the
production of the yearbook is Ms.
Van Camp.
"People should buy a yearbook
for the memories that they con-
tain," said Ms. Van Camp. "They
might not think they will care that
much about it later, but they will."
For more information, contact
Ms. Van Camp at Okeechobee
High School.

the fairway. The placement of the
second shot must be accurate to
set up a birdie chance here.
One of the favorite holes here
is the par-5 No. 5 (605 yards from
theback tees and 465 from the
forward). This is a hole that's
challenging from.tee to green.
You'll be happy to walk away with
a par on this hole. "It has a huge
uphill elevation change from the
tee to the landing area," says Jay
Overton, Director,of Golf. "Then
about 200 yards out from the
green, it starts to-drop dramatical-
ly back down. You have a blind
shot for 'your second shot going
over the hill. Then the green
slopes away from you as' you
make your approach shot."
I've played this course a few
times and have found it to be in
excellent condition and extremely
challenging. I also enjoyed the
Island course.

Fantasy Fest
KEY WEST Meteorologists at
the National Weather Service's Key
West office have been selected as
Fantasy Fest grand marshals, festival
officials announced Saturday.
Matt Strahan, the service's chief
meteorologist in Key West, and his
team of forecasters will be one of
the lead groups during the Fantasy
Fest parade Oct. 28.
The 10-day festival, known for
its decadence, ,is an annual event in
this island city. The party begins
Oct. 20.
"This year, more than ever,
everyone is keeping a watchful
weather eye on the tropics and we
wanted to present some of the peo-
ple that help keep us safe," said
Linda O'Brien, Fantasy Fest's direc-
tor.
Last year, officials were forced to
postpone Fantasy Fest for six weeks
when Hurricane Wilma threatened
South Florida a few days before the
event's official start. Still, the abbre-
viated festival still included all of
Fantasy Fest's major events.
"It's quite an honor," Strahan
said. "But the staff and I are really
surprised that after last year, festival
organizers would want anything to
do with weather people."

Livestock Market works with ranchers


Public concern for cattle
industry over food safety has
spawned a new niche market for,
cattle producers: age- and
source-verified cattle. Florida cat-
tle producers can earn substan-
tial premiums by age- and,
source-verifying their calves,
$48.50 which qualifies beef from their
$46.00 animals for sale to Japan and
$39.00 other export markets.
One company helping ranch-
$62.50 ers take advantage of this oppor-
$60.50 tunity is Okeechobee Livestock
Market. Florida's largest livestock
Tuesday market is selling truckload lots of
18250 age- and source-verified cattle
382 over the Internet through Pro-
18 ducers Cattle Auction LLC, an
4 online cattle auction company
28 based in Mobile, Alabama.
99 "Retailers are paying premi-
36 ums for age- and source-verified
2392 cattle, and there's no need for the
feedlots and the packers to be
the only ones in the production
chain that are getting them," said
Todd Clemons, president of
Okeechobee Livestock Market.
"Our aim is to help ranchers take
119-130 care of age and source verifica-
115-121 tion on their end so they can
110-115 keep more of the money in their
100-109 own pockets. The cow/calf pro-
95-101 ducer is the only person who can
95- 96 verify the age and source of feed-
Hfrs er calves."
In December 2003, a single
cow in Washington state tested
positive -for bovine spongiform
120-133 encephalopathy (BSE), also
111-127 known as mad cow disease.
100-120 As a result, U.S. beef was
90-109 banned by over 40 countries,
including
X Japan, the United States' most
x lucrative beef export market.
X Most of the markets that were
closed have since reopened, but
about $1 with restrictions on U.S. imports.
steady. Since most cases of BSE occur in
maybe a cattle over 30 months of .age,
heavier many countries now require that
moving cattle be less than 30 months old
:ow mar- at time of slaughter. Japan,
)r awhile. which ended its ban in July,
accepts only beef from cattle 20
t. 6, Gra- months old or younger.
20, Lem- "At this time, only the export
27 Bron- markets require age and source
ssimmee verification," said Jim Austin,
t with a president and general manager
mission, of Producers Cattle Auction. "But
be, Okee once consumers find out what
it with a Japan is requiring, it is likely that
ext week the domestic beef trade will also
demand more verification.


Producers who are proactive
and get involved in the verifica-
tion process early should be posi-
tioning themselves well for the
future."
Since April, Okeechobee Live-
stock Market has sold 25,000
head of cattle through online
auctions, and 80 percent of those
were age and source verified.
The premiums paid for age- and
source-verified calves are deter-
mined by supply and demand.
"If age and source verification
becomes required by the govern-
ment, then it will be the norm
and there won't be extra money
to be made,"
Clemons explained. "Of
course, that hasn't happened yet.
Right now, buyers are willing to
pay a premium for these cattle
because there are so few of them
available.
Producers Cattle Auction
makes verification easy and inex-
pensive with a simple, low-tech
ear tag that costs about a dollar.
The tag lists the birth date of the
oldest calf in the sale lot, the
premises identification number
assigned to the ranch where the
calves were born, and a contact
phone number. The rancher cre-
ates a paper trail by documenting
when he turned his bulls out and
when the 'first and last calves in
the group were born. He records
the total number of calves born
in the herd, the number of brood
cows in the herd, and the num-
ber of acres he ran the cattle on.
I'We have educated ourselves
.about exactly what is required by
Japan and other export mar-
kets," Austin said. "There is a lot
of misinformation out there.
Ranchers don't need to use
expensive electronic ID tags, and
they don't need to pay to have
their data stored in a commercial
database. The requirements are
really pretty simple, and ranchers
don't have to spend a lot to meet
them."
The premises identification
number is assigned by the U.S.
Department of Agriculture under
the National Animal Identifica-
tion System.
Rancher Woody Larson of
Dixie Ranch in Okeechobee has
been selling
cattle through Producers Cat-
tle Auction since 1993. He said
he's pleased with the relative
ease of the verification process.


"As long as we plan ahead and
have tags, there's not much extra
work," he said. "We do have to
plan and keep records. But put-
ting tags in the cattle is not that
bad. We just do it along with our
regular work." Larson said he
started age- and source-verifying
his calves "to get ahead of the
curve."
. "I try to do what I think the
customer will want," he said. "I
think people want to know
where their cattle come from,
not just in Japan, but here at
home too."
Perry Smith, owner of Perry
Smith and Sons Ranch in High-
lands County, has also begun age
and source verifying. He's been.
selling cattle online for years. "I
appreciate the research that has
been done to make the verifica-
tion process as simple as possi-
ble for producers," Smith said.
"It's another job, but it's
doable, and if we want to market
our product, we've got to get
with the program."
"Verification isn't mandatory
yet," Larson added. "But if it gets
to be, we'll be accustomed to it."

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.


We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)


things go


Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)


How are we doing?


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your
