Cafeteria menu items came

es on their nutritional values
Thursday morning at the Hun-
gry Panther Caf6 at Central Ele-
mentary School.
As part of School Lunch
Week, students representing
five different menu items and
wearing appropriatelydecorat-
ed T-shirts gave their cam-
paign speeches trying to per-
suade students to vote for
them. The students will vote
Monday and Tuesday, Oct. 9
and 10, for their favorite menu
item and the results will be
announced later that week.
To start the round of cam-
paign speeches, recently-elect-
ed County Judge Jerry Bryant
addressed the students about
campaigning.
"If you think you are the
person for the job, go for it,"
he told students. The judge-
elect mentioned Abraham Lin-
coln who lost four elections
before successfully being
elected president.
"He wasn't' afraid to keep
running," Mr. Bryant told the
students.
Mr. Bryant, himself, cam-
paigned several times before
being successful.

checking account.
Ellerbee is also a person of
interest in a number of home
break-ins on The Prairie. Among
some of the items reportedly taken
in these burglaries were firearms.
OCSO Captain Dale LaFlam
declined to say how Mr. Dellarco
died, or how Ellerbee gained entry
into the victim's three bedroom,
two-bath concrete block house on
N.W 282nd St.
"The indication is they may
have had a brief relationship," said
Capt. LaFlam. "They had met


once."
However, Sgt. Brock did say
that Mr. Dellarco "... was the vic-
tim of violent death."
"Our detectives worked around
the clock since the crime was dis-
covered," said Okeechobee Coun-
ty Sheriff Paul May. "We contacted
the Osceola County Sheriff's Office
and within an hour we were in the
area where the suspect was
believed to be."

on the land side of the dike and the
tow ditch to be filled. This would
combat two major problems cur-
rently facing the dike piping and
seepage, according to Steve Duba,
chief engineer for the Jacksonville
district.
Seepage is caused by water
seeping through the porous materi-
als in the dike. Piping occurs when
the water dislodges soil from the
dike.
Mr. Duba said this berm would
combat differential pressure creat-
ed by a higher water level on the
lakeside of the dike.
The second prong of the attack'
calls for a cutoff wall to be built in
the center of the dike to extend
below the limestone layer under
the dike. Mr. Duba calls this a sec-


ondary line of defense that would
seal pre-existing seeping and pip-
ing damage.
The engineer said that in the
original construction the fill materi-
al was not properly compacted. It
was built according to the stan-
dards of that day, which were not
as stringent as today's standards.
Mr. Duba said the approach
would vary in each section of the
dike. In some cases, there might be
a need for a deeper cutoff wall.
Several lessons were learned
from Hurricane Katrina that were
applied to the new study. One thing
learned was that external reviews
are important. Another lesson
learned from Hurricane Katrina
was that input from stakeholders
such as South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) and
local governments is important.
Col. Grosskruger said the COE is
now evaluating the concept of the
two-pronged attack and are work-


ing on how to move forward with
the plan.
Real estate acquisition is one
problem to be faced. In many
cases, the base of the dike sits on
private land. At the time of the
dike's construction, landowners
were more concerned with getting
the dike built than transferring
ownership of land to the govern-
ment.
When asked about designating
the dike as a dam, Col. Grosskruger
repliedthat the COE did not have
that authority, it was up to Con-
gress. 1
Before the ITR came out, a
$19.5 million contract had been let
for rehabilitation of a section of the
dike near Port Mayaca. Work on
that section of the dike was later
stopped after problems were dis-
covered with the fill material. The
only money spent so far on that
project has been spent on 6,200
feet of core wall that the COE says


leaves the dike in better shape than
it was before.
"That money is not wasted,"
said Allan Bugg, chief of construc-
-tioh and operations for the Jack-
sonville district.
The rest of the money can be
spent on revised design.
"The driving factor on repairing
the Herbert Hoover Dike is public
safety," asserted Mr. Bugg. "Public
safety trumps everything else
because it's impossible to put a
value on human life."
"We re being funded at full
capacity," said Mr. Duba.:
He went on to predict that the
project would be accelerated. He
said they were trying to be proac-
tive and that the new plan would
allow for updates in the future
should standards for the dike be
raised.
However, he declined to predict
the cost of the ITR or guess at a
timetable for its completion.

Ricky Lopez, India Coons, Noel
Aguirre, and Kelly Branam.
Mrs. Hollin's students are finish-
ing up their unit on Being Special
and following directions with Busy
and Betsy Bear. Parents remember
reading and spelling words should
be reviewed each night. You will
find that your child will be expected
to learn a lot of words in first grade.
It is.amazing how fast they learn
and how excited they are to learn.
Second grade
Mr. Wright's class has complet-
ed the first theme "Being Me" in
reading. We are working on graphs
in math. Our science textbooks
have many experiments to keep us
thinking and learning all year long.
The class enjoys learning from our
social studies weekly readers. In
our process writing lessons, we are
learning to do pre-writing activities
and complete proper sentences.
Mrs. Campbell's second grade
class is very busy. We are excited
about the 100 Book Challenge. Our
class enjoyed learning about
apples and doing activities with


apples.
Mrs. Brady's class has been very
busy! We are doing the 100 Book
Challenge, we have planted radish-
es, we are watching and waiting for
our caterpillars to turn into butter-
flies, learning to add three num-
bers, writing using order/sequence
words and adding details, studying
matter in science, discussing rules
and citizenship in social studies,
and reviewing main idea, nouns,
and setting in reading. Whew!
Overall we are busy beavers and
are enjoying our lessons and each
other. Keep reading at home!
Ms. Hunt's class is reading like
crazy for the 100 Book Challenge!
We read each morning, and after-
noon so we can earn two steps
every day. We just started chapter
five in math and it involves algebra.
Sometimes it's intimidating but we
love a challenge! Congratulations
to the seven second graders
who've passed their addition
minute test!
Mrs. Kirby's class is getting excit-
ed about fall. We have made color-
ful crayon melting leaves to bright-
en our room. Our pumpkin patch
display shows our effort in creative
writing. We are also planning sev-
eral special classroom activities in
October with pumpkins and Hal-
loween. We can't wait to get to take
home books for the 100 Book Chal-
lenge. We've already been reading
for the accelerated reading pro-
gram.
Ms. Stokes' class is off to a hectic
start! In math we are covering all
types of graphs: concrete, bar, and
pictographs. In our new science
series, we are learning about mat-
ter and its properties. In reading we
are discussing "The Enormous
Turnip" by Alexis Tolstoy. We are.
learning strategies for reading and
concepts such as sequencing,
types of genres, author's purpose,
and compare/contrast. We are
looking forward to a successful
year of achieving excellence in our
classroom.
Fourth grade
Mrs. Wilson's class has started
the 100 Book Challenge. Students
have been placed into their level
and are reading away. Every 15
minutes of reading is worth a step.
Our goal is to read 100 steps every
marking period. Of course, we
probably will not make it this mark-
ing period, but will aim for the next
three periods. In math, we are
studying customary measurement.
Parents may help students by hav-
ing their youngster measure things
at home with a ruler to the inch,
half inch, and quarter inch. Also, a
little help at home with cooking
could provide some familiarity with
teaspoons, tablespoons and cups
up to gallons. We are enjoying our
study of Florida history. Parents are
reading them as well. That's awe-
some. Our recent submission for
our literacy display was called a
rewriting of "The Frog Prince Con-
tinued". After hearing the story

ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
SEX OFFENDERS: I'm calling in reference to the sex offenders. I
don't know why they come in from other counties and dump them off
here in Okeechobee County because there sure are a lot of them. Also
they shouldn't be living in a neighborhood where there are children.
Anybody that molests a little child needs to be put on an island.

BUS STOPS: Has anyone else noticed that the high school buses are
making fewer stops this year, forcing students to walk farther to the
bus stops? The exercise won't hurt them but what about the safety
issues? If you travel on 24th Street in the early morning hours, you bet-
ter watch out so you don't hit the all the kids walking on that street to
get to the bus stop. There are not many sidewalks in Okeechobee and
few streetlights, especially outside the city limits. These kids are picked
up before 6:30 a.m. when it is still dark. I know the school board is try-
ing to save on fuel, but what about the safety of these students?

NEW STOPS: I have child at Okeechobee High School and one at
Yearling Middle School and they both have to walk to the new stops.

CHANGES NEEDED: I am just a resident parent and a registered
voter, so what do I know? But it is my thoughts that in areas where
there are no sidewalks kids should not be required to walk any place
on a street or road in the dark to take the bus to school. They are at risk
to be hit when they walk in the road. And don't say they should be
walking in the grass either snakes, fire ants, broken glass are only a
few of the reasons why not to walk there. Also, creeps could be in the
bushes and stalk the kids. I don't think we should be waiting until we
have a dead youngster before we make some positive changes.

BALLOTS: I understand that the ballots are already printed and
some absentees are already sent out. So they can't take Foley off the
ballot. The Florida Republican Committee will name a substitute and
any votes cast for Foley will go to that person. But even knowing that,
would you feel comfortable casting avote with Foley's name there?

WHAT'S IMPORTANT: The United States is more important than
the Republican Party and the Republican Party is more important than
Mark Foley. The important thing, as I see it, is to keep that San Francis-
co liberal known as Pelosi from being the Speaker of the House. Could
this nation endure her and Hillary at the same time?

IRKED: Child molesters are everywhere, regardless of any affilia-
tion. What kills me is how do they make it into office so easily? We
should never turn a blind eye to any suspicious behavior or allow it to
be swept under the rug. What irks me is Foley can check himself into
rehab, blame it on alcohol and he is forgiven.

OFFENDERS: Having a sex offender reside on your street is bad
enough. The issue at hand is having a group of six sex offenders in one
house in a residential neighborhood littered with children. There are at
least 19 children under the age of 13 that lives on 81st Court in Dixie
Ranch Acres. With the possibility of six sex offenders in one house that
triples our odds of having a child sexually offended. Why would you
put so many children, our children, at risk? Do you know what would
happen if a child comes home late from school?

UNFAIR: It's unfair to the law-abiding residents of Okeechobee
County and it's unfair to these sex offenders. They don't even have a
chance to truly be rehabilitated because the temptation (children) is
always present. This increases their odds to re-offend. I hate the
thought, but what could they possibly be discussing at the dinner
table? It's like Irying to rehabilitate adrug addict in adrug house.

ORDINANCES: Other counties statewide have passed ordinances
to prevent situations like this from happening that's why Okeechobee
County is becoming a haven and breeding ground for sex offenders.
There is also an economic impact. There will be a decrease in property
value and large developers might reconsider their plans. The sheriff
and county commissioners must aggressively address this issue before
it's too late.

DIXIE RANCH ACRES: I applaud the residents of Dixie Ranch Acres.
They truly care about their neighborhood and want to preserve the
integrity of Okeechobee County. Unlike Citrus County, Okeechobee
should make national headlines for being pro-active as opposed to
making the national headlines to report a missing child.

BRUSH PILES: There are two locations on S.R. 78 that have piles of
brush and tree trunks. If we ever get another hurricane like the ones
we had the past two years, these piles of brush and whatever else is in
the pile will go flying and cause damage to someone's house or even
cause bodily harm. They need to be hauled away. We don't need them
to be burned as this causes the smoke to affect those with breathing
problems.

EDC, county working with manufacturing prospects


GLADES COUNTY Even as
construction continues on the
new Glades County Jail and Immi-
grations and Customs Enforce-
ment facility, the Glades County
Economic Development Council
(EDC) is working with County
Manager Wendell Taylor to identi-
fy companies to site in the coun-
ty's 40-acre industrial park.
Mr. Taylor recently told mem-
bers of the City County Sewer
Authority at their Aug. 28 regular
meeting that the county and the
EDC are currently working with
two manufacturing prospects for
the park..
According to EDC Executive
Director Tracy Whirls, conceptual
designs for the park are expected
to be finalized within a couple of
weeks and costs associated with
needed infrastructure, including
roads, sewer, electric and water
lines, should be available shortly..
The EDC office is in discussion
with Enterprise Florida concerning
infrastructure funds for the project.
The 40-acre Glades County
Business and Commerce Park is


expected to be subdivided into
two to two and a half acre parcels,
and comprised of businesses
requiring ten or fewer acres for
their projects.
"The county doesn't want to
put all its eggs in one basket," Ms.
Whirls said.
The county is targeting primari-
ly light industrial, enclosed manu-
facturing facilities for the new
business and commerce park,
although the EDC director is quick
to note there are other industrially
zoned properties available in
Glades County which are not as
restricted.
"The county's business park is
going to be in the same complex
as the new county jail/ICE facility,
so you may not want companies
there which might require a lot of
storage for materials," the EDC
director said. "There are other
properties in the county that
would be perfectly suited for com-
panies where plenty of outdoor
storage, for materials or equip-
ment is available."
Glades County Manager Wen-


dell Taylor echoed the Ms.
Whirls' remarks.
"Glades County officials and
the EDC director are working
with prospects who are interest-
ed in investing in Glades County,"
the manager said. "Those
prospects are encouraged to
look at other properties that
might be available as well as the
county's business and com-
merce park," Mr. Taylor said.
Among the advantages of the
county park location is the pro-
posed construction of a new
Glades County Public Safety Build-
ing, comprised of a Fire Depart-
ment and EMS facility, as well as
Emergency Management Opera-
tions Center on site, all of which
are expected to bring insurance
rates for companies sitting there
drastically down. Similarly, once
design and infrastructure are in
place the park will be not only be
"shovel ready," in common real
estate parlance, but nearly a
turnkey operation.
"All of the issues typically expe-
rienced by companies looking to


site an industrial facility-zoning,
infrastructure, water retention,
permitting-will have been
addressed or will be addressed as
the park is developed," the EDC
director said. "Companies will
simply need to arrange for their
electric, water and sewer connec-
tions and build their facilities."
The EDC will work with com-
panies to assist them in securing
service, and can provide informa-
tion on utility rates, taxes and job
training.
The EDC director declined to
elaborate on negotiations with the
manufacturing prospects to
whom the county is talking. Nor-
mally the confidentiality provision
with Enterprise Florida prohibits
discussion of the company by
name until the deal is finalized.
Both companies have submit-
ted projected wage/number of
employees data, which will be
used to determine what funding
might be available for the project.
The EDC director, who is also
Glades County's enterprise zone,
coordinator, has provided infor-


nation to both prospects and a
third who is negotiating to pur-
chase another property in Glades
County, with information regard-
ing enterprise zone tax incentives
for which they may be eligible.
"It's a very tricky thing,
because you don't want to give
the public or EDC members the
impression that we're not doing
anything," Ms. Whirls said. "I can
only say, that in my first year as
EDC director, we were in serious
discussions with one industrial

Lakeport

By Nena Bolan
Special to Okeechobee News


LAKEPORT School children
in Lakeport have a homework
haven at the Lakeport After School
Program. The homework help is
provided by Debbie Zeigler and
local volunteers.
Ms. Zeigler was responsible for
taking care of her younger siblings,
cousins and neighbors while she
was growing up in Ohio. She said,
that when she was young it meant
a great deal to her when caring
adults offered to help with home-
work. Debbie Ziegler has been
planning to return the favor for a
long, long time.
"This has been a dream," she
said last week.
'Twenty two school children
attend the program at the Lakeport
Community Center. The school bus
stops conveniently at the center,
and volunteer tutors assist with
homework, supervision, and
snacks.
The service is free to any child
old enough to attend school. Partic-
ipating students are 4- to 12-years-
old, and a high school student may
do community service as a require-
ment for child development class.
By December, Ms. Zeigler is hppigg
the enrollment will increase to
accommodate 30 students.
Parents and family members
volunteer their time also, including
Jo Randolph, a former math
teacher.
The Lakeport Community Asso-
ciation donated $100 to Ms. Zei-
gler's program, and the Lakeport
Volunteer Fire Department also
donated food recently. Even the
local garden club has offered its
help.
Parents bring in games, books,
drinks, snacks and small prizes. Ms.
Zeigler's daughter, mother and
daughter-in-law also devote many
hours to the community project.
Everything would be perfect, if
not for the funding available to
keep the program going, Ms. Zei-
gler said.
The donations are not quite
enough to keep the program afloat.
Ms. Zeigler said she will begin
work at a morning job to help fund
the purchases needed, demonstra-
tive of her desire to see the program
flourish.
This is Ms. Zeigler's creation and
she said that parents and children
deserve a break. Sometimes par-
ents are overwhelmed with long
hours at work, commuting great

and elderly parents.
After school, some students go
home to an empty house and have
to wait for parents to return home
from work before they can receive
the homework help they need. If


children can get their homework
accomplished before parents get
home, then that frees up precious
time that can be used for other fam-
ily activities.
Parents can enroll their children
into the program by filling out an


with games, arts and crafts, or out-
side in the play area.,
On Oct. 19, Ms. Zeigler and
helpers will host an awards ban-
:'quet to recognize the achieve-
ments of students. Over 100
schoolwork papers are on display.
Also, on Saturday, Oct. 28, the
Lakeport communitywill host a fall
festival at the community center on
Red Bam Road. Donations will be
accepted at both events.
Money and food donations are
needed for snacks, games, small
prizes and certificates. Ms. Zeigler is
hoping for an extra large world
map, and a portable basketball
hoop, among other things.
If you are interested in learning
more about her program, or would

New crossbow season

will be longer this year


Crossbow hunters and bow
hunters will be happy to know the
new crossbow season is just
around the corner.
The next season, established for
this year, provides additional
opportunities for hunters wishing
to use crossbows. It also lengthens
the overall hunting season and
extends the number of days con-
ventional bow hunters can use
their bows, since bows now are
legal to take game during all hunt-
ing seasons.
The added season is limited to
private lands and restricts harvest
to bucks only. Crossbow season
does not apply to wildlife manage-
ment areas.
The season is between the
archery season and muzzle loading
gun season in the South and Cen-
tral hunting zones. Crossbow sea-
son lasts five days and runs Oct. 9-
13 in the South Hunting Zone and
Oct. 23-27 in the Central Zone.
In the Northwest Hunting Zone,
the season runs one week and
opens the Monday following
Thanksgiving (Nov. 27) through
Dec.3.
The most common game to
take during crossbow season are
deer, wild hogs and bearded
turkeys. Only bucks with at least an


antler five inches or more in length
can be taken, and the daily bag
limit is two. Antlerless deer may be
taken only by hunters holding
antlerless deer permits.
On private lands, there are no
bag or size limits on wild hogs and,
with landowner permission, they
can be taken year-round.
Only one turkey may be taken
per day, and there is a two-bird fall-
season limit. Turkeys may not be
harvested in Holmes County dur-
ing any fall season, including cross-
bow season.
Hunters cannot use dogs during
crossbow season to take deer, hogs
or turkeys, and when hunting such
game, broad heads must have at
least two sharpened edges with a
minimum width of 7/8 inch.
Besides a Florida hunting
license, hunters must purchase a
$5 crossbow season permit to
hunt during crossbow season.
Hunters holding a sportsman's,
gold sportsman's, military gold
sportsman's or sportsman's 64
license do not need to buy the
crossbow season permit if their
license runs through the season.
For more information on the
new crossbow season, call Tony
Young at (850) 488-7867 or visit
MyFWC.com/hunting.

Turkey hunt permit deadline approaches


The deadline to apply for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission's (FWC)
2006 special-opportunity spring
turkey hunts is 11:59 p.m., Tues-
day, Oct. 17.
To apply, hunters can obtain
applications at MyFWC.com and
at all FWC regional offices. Appli-
cations will be accepted online at
MyFWC.com, at county tax collec-
tors' offices or at any license agent.
A random drawing decides who

Hunter can increase their
chances of being selected by sub-
mitting as many $5 non-refund-
able applications as they like. Suc-
cessful applicants pay an
additional $50-$175, depending on
the special-opportunity hunt area

out-of-state hunters to one permit

These special hunts have been
created for sportsmen who covet


an Osceola, the "crown jewel" of
the turkey hunters' Gran Slam. The
FWC designs special-opportunity
turkey hunts to take place on large
tracts of land with great habitat,
healthy turkey populations and a
limited number of hunters. All
hunts take place within the Osceo-
la Turkey's range.
