The residents of Bet-Her
Acres subdivision can now
rest assured that there will be
no multifamily developments
in their neighborhood.
By a 4-1 at their meeting on
Thursday, Oct. 12, the Okee-
chobee County Board of
County Commissioners
decreed that the block of S.E.
Second Avenue directly south
of the Race Trac service sta-
tion on S.R. 70 E. would retain
its present zoning of residen-
tial single family. -
Commissioner Ehie Posey'

granting.the change.

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In the near future, develop-
ers of multifamily housing
units and mobile home parks
might have to consider land-
scaping the grounds thanks to
a proposed landscape ordi-
nance.
At their meeting on Thurs-
day, Oct. 12, the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners discussed a pro-
posed landscaping ordinance.
Landscaping has been under
discussion for a while, but this
is the first time a proposed
ordinance has actually been
considered.


requested a change in zoning
in order to build multifamily
units.
On Sept. 26 the county
planning board had voted to
recommend that the commis-
sioners grant Mr. Butler's
request.
Mr. Butler's attorney, Glen
Weber, noted that the area in
question was a transition area.
He claimed that the increased
value of the property if rental
units were built would result
in a $22,850 increase in taxes.
"A well maintained multi-
family unit should not have an
adverse effect on property val-
ues," Mr. Weber quoted a
property appraiser as saying.
See Zoning -Page 2


Planning official Bill Royce
presented the proposed ordi-
nance that was supplied by
Terry Burroughs of Okee-
chobee Main Street.
Mr. Royce suggested that,
at this time, the county not
adopt landscaping regulations
for single-family dwellings or
for small developments or
additions that would not be
subject to the site plan review
process. He said that impact
fees would soon be imposed
and he feared that a land-
scape ordinance on top of
that would further increase

Welcome to Okeechobee
Motorists entering Okeechobee County from the east and
west on State Route 70 will soon be greeted by these signs
at the eastern and western boundaries of the county. The
design was approved by the board of county commission-
ers at their Thursday, Oct. 10 meeting. As motorists enter
the county they will see the county seal and the words
"Okeechobee County welcomes you". As motorists leave
the county, they will see the county seal and the words
"come back soon."

Mrs. Marsoci stated that

He said it would be easier to
enforce code violations involv-
ing appearance and upkeep of
rental property rather than on
homesteaded property.
He said he felt the neighbor-
hood would be better off with

ter code enforcement.
This was Mr. Butler's second

Pre-K program enrolls 44 percent of eligible children


TALLAHASSEE Forty-four
percent of all eligible 4-year-old
children in Florida have been
enrolled in the state's voluntary
pre-kindergarten program, now
in its second year, state officials
said Thursday.
Only two months into the cur-
rent school year, 97,000 children
are in the program administered
by the Agency for Workforce
Innovation. That's more than the


entire past school year August
2005 through June 2006 -
when 96,295 children participat-
ed, also 44 percent of then-eligi-
ble children, said agency
spokesman Warren May.
"We are very encouraged by
the tremendous increase in
enrollment in Florida's second.
year of offering a free and volun-
tary pre-kindergarten program,"
Lt. Gov. Toni Jennings said in a


statement.
Children can be enrolled in
the program at any time
although classes already have
started. Officials are expecting
the number to climb to 100,000
before January, the next heavy
enrollment period. Another
boost is expected for the 2007
summer program.
Children who were 4 on or
before Sept. 1, 2006 are eligible.

VOTE: In our county, commissioners have to live in the district they
represent. But, everyone in the county can vote in the county commis-
sion races. A commissioner can lose the vote in his district but still retain
his seat. This has happened more than once in the past. Since they are
elected county-wide, they don't really have that much incentive to take
care of the people in their designated district.
OFFENDED: This is to the person that is condemning the Amish reli-
gion. I am very offended for I am of Amish descent. You are a very sick
person. You need to get a life or become a witness, or maybe you are
one.
OUT IN SPACE: You know, Bill Nelson flew into space and I just got to
thinking about it: Kathryn Harris is whole lot farther out than he is.
SEX OFFENDERS: I know all about the talk about the sex offenders
that recently moved into a home here in Okeechobee County. This really
disturbs me. But, let me tell you there are other homes in Okeechobee
where these sick pedophiles live. Even in some of the nicer senior gated
communities. I don't know all the rules and regulations there but I think
someone needs to check into it. I would hate to learn that I was living
next to one, and didn't even know about it. ,
ORDINANCE: I was at the county commission meeting, as well as.
many of the residents of Dixie Ranch Acres. It is my understanding that
the county attorney will be drafting an emergency ordinance to prevent
any more from moving into the house until a permanent ordinance can
be instituted. I ,for one, thought the meeting went well. The commission-
ers too are feeling much the same as we do about what is transpiring
here. I do agree with Sherriff Paul May, that the children of this area, are
everyone's children and they will do as much as is possible to stop this
from happening in an area such as Dixie Ranch Acres.
PLIGHT: My hat's off to the parents who stood and had their say at the
county commission. You all did a very fine job of representing all of us. I
also want to commend the lady who read of our plight and came to the
meeting to tell of her story about what happened with a home of the
same type in her neighborhood up north. Thankyou ma'am for speaking
out for us. I do believe there will be an end to all this. It may not be real
soon, but there will be an end.
SUPPORT: I attended the commission meeting Thursday. My heart
just goes out to all who spoke. Some were very emotional at times. The
commissioners didn't speak except in generalities more or less refer-
ring to code enforcement with regard to the operation of a rehab center
in a residential neighborhood. There was a lot of emotion at the meeting,
and I fully understand how they all felt and their anger at what was per-
ceived as a lack of action on the part of the commissioners. Infdefense of
the commissioners, their hands are tied and everything gets thrown into
the lawyer's lap and Bill Royce to research into the matter further and
make sure it's iron dad. The Sherriff has a great grip as to what is going
on and right now I would say Dixie Ranch is the safest place to be in
Okeechobee. I fully plan on continual support for the folks in Dixie Ranch
and all of Okeechobee to protect our children from the likes of wolves in
sheep's clothing.
FEAR: I hope the parents in this community realize that talkingin front
of their kids about this situation will only fill them with fear. Children need
to know that they are protected and safe in there own home. I felt horri-
ble for the mother who said'her three'kids check there windows every
night this is not good for them. If your children are doing this, you need
to take them to counseling.

RIGHTS: You can not instill fear into your children where it gets to the
point that they are checking there windows before they go to sleep. I
agree with your concerns, a home such as this should not be in a residen-
tial neighborhood. But you also have to realize that our country is based
on laws and the constitution we all have rights. You would not want
your rights trampled on, would you?

MAKEA DIFFERENCE: If you're talking about this in front of your kids
day and night, stop! You can put fear in them for the rest of there life. They
need to understand that you disagree with this, that you feel it is not right
and that you are going to try and change it. It's good to show kids that one
person can make a difference.
HEARTBREAKING: It was heartbreaking to hear the fear in these
mothers' voices as they spoke at the county commission meeting, and
the concern they have for their children. I, as a parent, have always an
open door policy with regard to keeping my children informed about
possible dangers that lurk around us in today's world. It is our duty as par-
ents to calm their fears and let them know that we are to protect them. If
you can't say something kind and supportive to these people in their time
of need,say nothing at all

Letter to the Editor



Thank you
I would like to publicly thank all
the people who have helped to
make my swim program at Year-
ling Middle School a success again
thisyear.
I have been teaching swimming
at the Sport's Complex Pool every
year since the pool opened in 1990.
Over the years the program has
evolved to fit the needs and sched-
uling of the students at Yearling.
Some citizens of Okeechobee
may remember in the early years
when the students changed into
their swim suits at school, and then
trekked the quarter mile over to the
pool. Getting over wasn't too bad,
but walking back wet led to much


Sport's Complex soil ending up on
the locker room floors back at Year-
ling.
After the locker rooms at the
complex were finished we could at
least change there and keep the soil
over there. A couple years back I
finally gave in and started using
buses. Actually, that change came
about because hurricane damage
threatened to cancel the swim pro-
gram for that year and the only way
we could safely get the students
over was to bus them. Pool director
Shelly Mitchell saved my program
that year, by allowing us to do that.
Thank you to Shelly and all of
her competent lifeguards. Many of
them have other jobs and work as
lifeguards on their "days off." They

all like kids and it shows by them
agreeing to some of the activities
we ask them to help us do.
Thank you to the teachers and
staff of Yearling Middle School. We
have over 200 kids carrying around
wet swim suits and towels
throughout the day (every day) for
the month of September and with-
out the staff understanding the
importance of this program to the
students it wouldn't be possible for
the kids to swim every year.
Because of schedules at all
other schools in the county the
swim program at Yearling is the
only chance for students to swim
for 20 days each of their three years
at the school. Many of those stu-
dents go onto join the swim team


or become lifeguards.
. Thank you to our bus driver this
year, Nathan Todd. Mr. Todd helped
by being available wherever and
whenever we needed him. Thank
you to my cohort, Brian Kendall.
Having a male teacher at the com-
plex makes supervision of the
boy's locker room so much easier.
I hope the water safety informa-
tion that the students have learned
over the years has contributed to
their respect of water that sur-
rounds us here in South Florida.
Again, I would like to thank all
who have made the swim program
at YMS a success this year and
everyyear.

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

We do print "bad" news. (ItIS newsworthy when m ings 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

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 Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:





S Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
0 ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
nterefri pa, ment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
0 The sum of these costs is referred toeas OPITI.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.

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 Hymer.
Roughly speaking,, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:







.y 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.

S'Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
. our projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
.C"r interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.

0 The sum of these costs is referred to as OPITI.O Monthlyhomeownersi 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 falling 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, October 14, 2006


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Stu Beebe
Director of Christian Education,
First United Methodist Church of
Okeechobee
The other day I passed a small
church way out in the country,
and the title on their sign said, "He
who dies with the most toys...is
still dead!"
Now, I am used to seeing a lot
of interesting titles on church
signs, in fact this same church, a
couple of weeks before had the
title, "If you're looking for a sign
from God... THIS IS IT!"
I'm sure all this is good for
attendance, but the first one, the
one about the most toys, rang just
a little too true to me: Most of us
identify ourselves with what kind
of work we do, or where we live,
or what kind of house we live in.
Just a few of us will tell a stranger


where we go to church, and only
then, if we are sure that they go to
church too, and that we, or they,
won't be uncomfortable bringing
that up.
I'm kind of glad that those
church signs don't have to worry
about offending people. They
have become the Burma Shave
signs of the current generation. If
you are too young to remember
the Burma Shave signs (lucky
you!), the only one I can remem-
ber goes: We've made Grandpa
Look so youthful. His pension
board thinks... He's untruthful-
Burma Shave.
Of course, -the first time I saw
it, some smart person had stolen
the next to last sign, leaving me to
wonder why the pension board
was thinking about Burma Shave.
So in a similar fashion, I think
our churches have the opportuni-


ty to really say what's on their
minds in a unique way. And I am
sure all those preachers just
scratch their heads every week to
think of something new and inter-
esting so we will go inside and get
the rest of the message.
I'm happy to say that, when I
see the signs in from of most
churches, I can clearly tell that
there is a spiritual and even Christ-
ian message that is evident. At
least you can tell that it is really a
house of God and not just another'
place of business. ,
I wonder if people can tell that
about us personally. We are, after
all, reflections of God who made
us in His own image. And if we
have truly been saved by Jesus
Christ, and are indwelt by the
Holy Spirit......shouldn't that be
obvious?
If you can't tell a true believer

from someone who is not... what
is the difference?
Are we like those signs in front
of the church that announce to
the world just exactly what we are
all about? Or are we playing the
"most toys" game like everybody
else?
If you can't tell the difference
about yourself, ask your kids.
What do they talk about with their
friends? Do they have to have a
certain brand of attire to wear to
school? Is there peer pressure for
them to be just like everybody
else? Of course there is. And that
pressure increases daily in our
materialistic society. We can't
blame our kids for that.
But we can make sure they
know Jesus. And we can make
sure that they know .that we are
Christians, and that Jesus is the
only thing you can take from this

strengthens the listener. He has
been called by God to sing the
older, traditional songs such as "His
Eye is on the Sparrow", "Till the
Storm Passes By", and "The Light-
house". Not only does he inspire
and comfort through singing songs
composed by other writers, but
Randy has written some outstand-

that are certain to become classics
of the future. His signature song,
"Never Worthy, Only Thankful"
assures us that Jesus died just for

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

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.
