EMT solicitation
is telephone scam
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has
recently been notified by area
residents that a group called
Florida EMTs & Paramedics 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.

Eric Lodge selected
As Athlete of Month
Eric Lodge is #12 on the
1, Brahman varsity football
team. The cornerback was
named as the Publix Super
Market/Okeechobee News
male Athlete of the Month for
August because of his out-
standing performance for the
Brahmans. In three games,
he had three interceptions
and 12 tackles.
"Eric is only 5'6", and
teams throw at him thinking
he is not a player, but he has
had six passes thrown at him
in three games. He had three
pass breakups and three
interceptions," stated Brah-
man head coach Chris Bran-
ham.

Everglades Elementary: Elects student council
[4-v ,- ::,!.< lE II li __.. ,,L ':


uKeecnoDee News/!ete uawaa
Students at Everglades Elementary School learned a lesson about the voting process
while electing student council officers on Tuesday, Oct. 3. The students used touch
screen voting machines supplied by Okeechobee County Supervisor of Elections Gwen
Chandler. Mrs. Chandler's poll workers assisted the students in casting their electron-
ic ballots. Winners in the election were: Markita Skeen, president; Paige Roller, vice
president; Steven Alvarez, secretary; and, treasurer Kaylee Tomoszwicz.


Minister says



group homes



pose no danger


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Although Matthew 25 Min-
istries is enthusiastic about pro-
viding help and therapy to con-
victed sexual offenders, its
director, Reverend R.D.'With-'
erow, said not everyone can get
into the one-year program.
Matthew 25 Ministries is
headquartered in Lake Worth
and is an after-care treatment
program for convicted regis-
tered sex offenders.
"I serve a God %% hio can heal
and restore this type of per-
son," said Rev. Witherow on
Monday, Oct. 2. "In six \ears
we've never had anyone re-
offend that was either going
through or had been through
the recovery program."


While in the program,
offenders are taught anger
management, boundaries, life
skills, how to handle their
money and how to balance a
checkbook. In some instances,
the ministry helps them get
their high school diploma.
Matthew 25 has been the
focal point of recent concerns
about placing homes contain-
ing as many as six convicted
offenders in residential neigh-
borhoods in Okeechobee
County. Currently there are two
such 'group' homes 2587
S.E. 63rd Court and 7272 N.W.
81st Court in Dixie Ranch
Acres.

Gwen Chandler said the election was good training for her poll workers.


Schools receive weather radios


By Pete Gawda,
Okeechobee News
The recent gift of weather
radios to Okeechobee schools
came as a welcome surprise to
Ken Kenworthy, assistant
superintendent of schools. Mr.
Kenworthy said that Okee-
chobee schools have all had
weather radios for seven or
eight years. However, with the
second radio, Mr. Kenworthy
said that when hurricane shel-
ters are activated in the
schools, one radio could be
used in the shelter, which
could be in the cafeteria. The
other radio could be used at
the same time in the front
office where a command cen-
ter might be set up.
The radios were part of a
shipment of radios sent to all
97,000 public schools in the
United States. The Department
of Homeland Security provided
$5 million to make this hap-
pen.


The radios are also programmed for amber
alerts dealing with missing children.


Florida along with Ten-
nessee, Washington, North
Carolina, Maryland and Missis-
sippi already had weather
radios in schools.
The radios are also pro-
grammed for amber alerts
dealing with missing children.
Mr. Kenworthy said the
schools are required to have
one tornado drill a year that is,
usually held in February. They
are also required to have 10
fire drills a year. He said that a
tornado drill could be substi-
tuted for one of the fire drills.
The radios are equipped
with a battery backup in case
of power failure.
The National Weather Ser-
vice, part of the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA), oper-
ates more than 950 short-range


radio stations. It has encour-
aged schools, business and
homeowners to buy warning
radios that are activated with a
broadcast signal that automati-
cally turns a radio on and
announces a potential hazard.
The Okeechobee radios are
programmed to pick up weath-
er alerts from the National
Weather Center office in Mel-
bourne.
In announcing the plan to
distribute the radios, NOAA
pointed out that more than
10,000 major thunderstorms,
2,500 floods and 1,000 torna-
does hit the U. S. annually, and
that hurricanes threaten the
Gulf and East coasts.
Editor's note: Some of the
material in this article came
from the Associated Press.

mentary School. The Department of Homeland Security recent-
ly donated weather radios to schools all across the country.

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.

producer.

Dog lovers sought for new club
OKEECHOBEE Interested parties are being sough to start an
informal group to meet and discuss topics dealing with their AKC
pure-bred dogs.
Topics will include, but will not be limited to: health, nutrition,
training, correct AKC breed standards and ethical breeding, as
well as any other topics of interest to the group.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees

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 propeller
of an outboard motor.

Homes

Continued From Page 1
S.E. 63rd, Rev. Witherow said his
ministry is only renting the home
in Dixie Ranch Acres from W.J.
Fillmore of Jupiter.
As of Monday, there are only
two offenders living in the Dixie
Ranch Acres home.
"Before renting the home
from Mr. Fillmore, we spoke to
the immediate neighbors," said
Rev. Witherow. "When we
explained who we are and what
we did, there was no bad reac-
tion.
"They (the neighbors) didn't
realize that all sex offenders
aren't pedophiles. We don't work
with those people not because
they won't change, but it's too
risky," he continued.
However, many homeowners
in the Dixie Ranch Acres are con-
cerned about the group home
being on a street where there are
at least 16 children. And, the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners is also
concerned. So much so that they
ordered county attorney John
Cassels at their Sept. 28 meeting
to draft an ordinance that pro-
hibits two or more sexual offend-
ers from living together in one
house unless they are in a con-
ventional marriage with children.
That board, following the urg-
ing of Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul May, voted unanimously to
direct Mr. Cassels to write the
ordinance.
At that meeting, Sheriff May
also told the board that there
have been no complaints about
the home on S.E. 63rd.
"I don't agree with it, obvious-


ly," said Rev. Witherow of the
proposed ordinance. "I think it's
unconstitutional. I think it will be
challenged in court and I don't
think it will stand the challenge."
In issuing the directive to Mr.
Cassels, the commissioners also
felt that the rent of $145 per
offender, per week, constitutes a
business.
But, Rev. Witherow said the
charge is not rent.
"We charge each man a pro-
gram fee," he said. "The fee pro-
vides them housing, support and
teaching."
That fee also pays for all utili-
ties including electricity, tele-
phone and television and
some of the food.
"If they have a hard time get-
ting work, we carry them until
they gain employment," said Rev.
Witherow. "We have a fellow
that's been in the hospital with
pneumonia and can't go back to
work for a couple of weeks, so
we'll carry him also."
Rev. Witherow, who has been
doing recovery ministry for 26
years, said the fee paid by the
offenders does not cover the
costs of running the program.
"We have many supporters
who make up the rest through
contributions and donations," he
added.
Rev. Witherow began working
with those addicted to drugs or
alcohol in the early '80s, but left
that ministry in 1990 and became
involved with Matthew 25. He still
does some volunteer work with
alcoholics and drug addicts, he
said.
He said Matthew 25 opened its
first house in 1991 in West Palm
Beach. Then, in 2000 they were
given a 21-acre ranch, called the


PACT Center, in Okeechobee
County near Fort Drum.
"But, we were forced to close
due to zoning issues," he said.
According to county records,
the PACT center was closed
because it did not have all neces-
sary special exceptions to oper-
ate.
"It was made very clear to us
by the county they were not
going to give us any exceptions,"
explained Rev. Witherow. "Even-
tually, we sold that property and
purchased the house on S.E.
63rd. We have a very good rela-
tionship with the neighbors
there."
In voicing their concerns to
Sheriff May at a meeting held at
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) last week, home-
owners were concerned that by
having several offenders living
together it could lead to talk of
the past and, as a result, possibly
re-offending.
"There is absolutely none.of
that," explained Rev. Witherow.
"These men don't want to talk
about their past. We make them
talk as part of their healing


process and during therapy.
That's the only place they talk
about these things. That's not a
danger at all."
He went on to explain that
due to their probation, they could
be arrested for violating their pro-
bation with even the most minor
of charges.
"They cannot have contact
with a minor child zero con-
tact," he said. "Even when we go
shopping, we always go in the
buddy system so they can't be
accused of having contact with a
minor child."
Although he knows of the
fears and perceptions concerning
convicted sexual offenders, Rev.
Witherow is convinced that these
are usually underserved. He said
he has worked with up to 50
offenders and has never had any-
one re-offend.
"I'm dealing with people that
have made wrong choices, made
mistakes and paid for their mis-
fakes. Noy, they deserve a sec-
ond chance," he said. "Everyone
deserves a second chance -
unless they are a sex offender."

ta, who is new to our class and
Happy Birthday to Daniel Nunez.
The students in both BASE class-
es are learning about Florida
Indians, learning how to begin a
mouth watering expository with
an Amazing Action, Catchy
Question, Dramatic Description,
or a Surprising Statement. Go
ahead, ask your child about the
chips it was a great object les-
son. We will work on different
introductions next week and
then cool conclusions the fol-
lowing. Many students have
great writing skills already so
we will work to improve them!
And, in Science, we are working
through the first unit on matter
- and parents, Mrs. Pritchard is
very aware of the difficultnesss'
or difficulty in the science text.
We will work through it togeth-
er!! However, you can read it
with your child and help them in
any way. If you are at a loss to
help them give me a call.
Have a great week.
Mr. Goff's class is working
extremely hard in math. We are


working on our algebra chapter
and are preparing for our unit 1
test. We are also working hard
on our multiplication facts. We
should have them memorized
soon. In science we are studying
sound waves and are learning
about frequency, amplitude,


pitch, and wave lengths. In read-
ing we just read an interesting
story about Amelia Earhart and
Eleanor Roosevelt. We will be
testing week. In writing we are
still.working on our expository
writings. Our first quarter has
been wonderful!

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
ORDINANCE: I was reading the paper Friday morning and was
happy to see that John Cassels is trying to draw up an ordinance
regarding sexual offenders living together. I just have one question. It
states in the paper that if they are in a conventional marriage with chil-
dren that will be accepted. My question is: how can a sexual offender
live in the same house as children, especially if the person has been
charged with lewd acts with a minor? Is that not putting the children
that live in the house in danger of something happening to them? It
even states in the article that Sheriff Paul May feels that sexual offend-
ers may re-offend. If he is concerned about that then how can children
be put in a home with a sexual offender?
(Editor's Note: According to Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May,
the sentence and special restrictions handed down by a judge are on
a case-by-case basis. Unless the restrictions specify that the offender
is not to live in a house with children present, there's no law to keep
this from happening. While I do not believe that all sexual offenders
will re-offend, the fact is that some do and some of the crimes com-
mitted against children may be so bad that restrictions should be put
on the offenders that they are never to be around children alone
again.)

NO CHANGE: I am calling about the comment in the Tuesday, Sept.
20, newspaper about the new voices. It says the good old boys are
going to lose their old-fashioned way of living, Well actually, everyone
who was elected in the recent election are good old boys who have
been here all their lives. We haven't gotten rid of the good old boys.
The good old boys are still there.

FOLEY: As a parent, I am shocked that Governor Bush would say he
hopes Foley should not have to serve any prison time.

BOLD STAND: I applaud the county commissioners in their efforts
to go ahead and take a bold stand regarding sexual offenders. They
definitely have broken the laws of this country. I would like to see the
county commission also take a tough stand on the illegal immigrants
who are in this county. They have also broken the laws of this country.

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

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

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

Ad Litem program
needs volunteers
This year, hundreds'of kids on
the Treasure Coast will be abused,
neglected or abandoned. If you
have as little as two hours per week,
then you can help. Guardian Ad
Litem volunteers are needed to
speak up for these children. Train-
ing for new volunteers will be held
in your area soon. Volunteers are
needed in St. Lucie, Indian River,
Martin and Okeechobee counties.
Call the Guardian Ad Litem pro-
gram at (772) 785-5804 for informa-
tion and an application. Just two
hours of your time each week will
make a difference in the lives of
these children.

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, divorced or single. Their most
important characteristic_ isihat they
are caring individuals who under-
stand 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 Auxiliary
has served as the civilian, non-mili-
tary component of the Coast Guard.
Today, the 33,000 volunteer men
and women of the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary are active on the water-
ways and classrooms 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 courtesy
safety examinations of recreation
vessels and teach over 500,000 stu-
dents in boating and water safety
courses. The results of these efforts
save taxpayers hundreds of millions
of dollars every year. For informa-
tion, 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 Development 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 craftfs
instructors, mentors, job prepara-
tion and search instructors, recre-
ation aides and assistance in devel-
oping a youth choir. Wouldn't you
like to make a difference? If so,
please contact EYDC, 7200 U.S.
Hwy. 441 N., Okeechobee, Fl.
34972. (863) 763-2174, ext. 234.
