NEHS to honor
Red Ribbon Week
Enrique "Kiki" Camarena
grew up in a dirt-floored house
with hopes and dreams of
making a difference.
Camarena worked his way
through college, served in the
Marines, and became a police
officer. When he decided to
join the U.S. Drug Enforce-
ment Administration, his
mother tried to talk him out of
it "I can't not do this," he told
her. "I'm only one person, but
I want to make a difference."
The DEA sent Camarena to
work undercover in Mexico
investigating a major drug car-
tel believed to include officers,
in the Mexican army, police,
and government. On Feb. 7,
1985, the 37-year-old Camare-
na'left his office io meet his
wife for lunch Five men
appeared at the agent's side
and shoved him in a car. One
month later, Camarena's body
was found in a shallow grave.
He had been tortured to death.
In honor of Camarena's
memory and his battle against
illegal drugs, friends and
neighbors began to wear red
badges of satin. Parents, sick
of the destruction of alcohol
and other drugs, had begun
forming coalitions. Some of
these new coalitions took
Camarena as their model and
embraced his belief that one
person can make a difference.
These coalitions also adopted
the symbol of Camarena's
memory,the red ribbon.

JAKES Day: '...about kids being outside'


SudfiBaO to the Okeechobee News
Youngsters attending JAKES Day (Juniors Acquiring Knowledge, Ethics and Sports-
manship) Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Flying G Ranch got to take a swamp buggy ride where
they saw deer and wild turkey-


About 40 youngsters aged nine to 16 participated in JAKES Day (Juniors Acquiring
Knowledge, Ethics and Sportsmanship) held Saturday, Oct. 14 at the Flying G Ranch on
U. S. 98. The program, sponsored by the national Wild Turkey Federation, is designed
to acquaint youngsters with the outdoors.

Kids learn about safety, having fun


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
On Saturday, Oct. 14, the
5,000-acre Flying G Ranch north
of Okeechobee on U.S. 98 was
taken over by about 40 kids
aged 9 to 16 and about 60 adults
including Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion Officers (FWC).
It was all part of JAKES Day
(Juniors Acquiring Knowledge,
Ethics and Sportsmanship), a
program sponsored by the
National Wild Turkey Federa-
tion.


"It was about kids being out-
side, having fun and being
safe," said ranch manager Jeff
Budz.
"JAKES Day participants
learn the basic outdoor skills
necessary to become success-
ful stewards of natural
resources and to be responsible
outdoorsmen- and women
through fishing, camping and
hunting seminars," according
to an article published in Janu-
ary of 2005 in the "Glades Coun-
ty Democrat."
The kids learned about gun
safety, observed the reloading


of shotgun shells, shot rifles,
shotguns, bows and muzzle-
loaders. They also took a
swamp buggy ride, saw a K-9
demonstration by FWC officers
and got to see exotic animals.
In spite of the fact that Okee-
chobee is in a rural area, Mr.
Budz said many of the activities
were new to some of the kids.
Dustin Smith, 14, said it was
fun. He liked shooting the muz-
zleloaders, but he said shooting
sporting clays was more enjoy-
able.

TDC, bass tourney at odds


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Headturners3.com, a profes-
sional bass tournament trail
based in central Florida, has
been hosting bass tournament
trails on Lake Okeechobee since
2004. But Pat Malone, president
of Headturners3.com, recently
notified anglers that his organi-
zation would not be returning to
the town of Okeechobee for the
2007 season.
"It is with regret that we
release to our anglers that the
Wave Worms HT3 Pro Bass Tour
will not be returning to Okee-
chobee's Okee-Tantie park dur-
ing the 2007 season," he said.
"We have been denied support
by the Okeechobee Tourism
Development Council while


other tournament trails with far
less anglers and who pull far less
visitors to the area's hotels and
businesses were given plenty of
support and tourism money."
Mr. Malone was referring to
the Okeechobee County Tourist
Development Council's (T.D.C.)
decision to table his request for
funding through their special
events marketing program. This
program provides approved
organizations with grants to
help defray the costs of advertis-
ing through a reimbursement
program.
T.D.C. was established in
September of 1992 by the Okee-
chobee County Board of County
Commissioners. According to
their documentation, "... the
T.D.C. serves in an advisory


capacity to the county commis-
sion in matters of tourism devel-
opment."
In 1992 the T.D.C. recom-
mended a Tourist Development
Plan that included a suggested 2
percent tourist development tax
on short term accommodations.
The tax was approved by voters
in 1992. This tax is collected on
all hotel, motel, campground,
RV park, condominium and
apartment rentals of six months
or less.
In December 1996, that tax
was increased to 3 percent.
T.D.C. uses a portion of the
funds from this tax to bring
tourists to Okeechobee County
and encourage organizations to

bring their events to the county.
In fiscal year 2005/06 the tourist
tax revenue for Okeechobee
County was $230,552.
"The funds are designed to
promote Okeechobee County as a
visitor destination with emphasis
in the following markets: transient
leisure, meetings and conven-
tions, special events, amateur
sporting events, group leisure trav-
el and motion picture and televi-
sion production," stated Kathy
Scott, tourism coordinator.
The guidelines for possible
funding through T.D.C.'s special
event marketing program are very
specific and spelled out in the spe-
cial event application forms that
must be filled out by organizations
that want funding.
According to the paperwork:
"T.D.C. funds are to be viewed as
seed money to assist the organiza-
tion in developing the event rather
than a source of guaranteed con-
tinuous funding into the future."
Events that seek TDC help are
also required to have either a his-
tory of, or the potential for, attract-
ing out-of-county visitors either as
participants or spectators.
Consideration is also given to
events such national bass tourna-
ment trails as FLW Outdoors,
B.A.S.S. and the Wal-Mart BFL
which can generate national, state
or regional media exposure for
Okeechobee County.
Other funding requirements
state that funds are to be used for
the promotion and advertising of
the event. This advertising and
promotion should be outside of
Okeechobee County and be at
least two hours driving time from
the county.
On May 25, 2004, Mr. Malone's
application was approved by the
T.D.C. for advertising reimburse-
ment of up to $3,500 for the Frogg
Togg Headturners Big Dawg Open
to be held July 16-18, 2004.
T.D.C. reviews applications for
new events in January, March,
May, July, September and Novem-
ber of each year. Returning events
are reviewed for funding once a
year. Applicants who fail to meet
the deadline to turn in applica-
tions are not considered for fund-
ing.
Mr. Malone's application for
advertising reimbursement for the
three-day Big Dawg Open to be
held Dec.10-12, 2004, and two-day
tournaments to be held in Janu-
ary, February, March; April, May,
-June;.nd July 2005 was approved
on Oct. 25.20Q4, y2.Qe T.D.C.c,
board.
Mr. Malone again sought fund-
ing in April of 2005. According to


Plant

cer for Royal Professional
Builders, this will open 400 jobs
right away, of which the majori-
ty will come from out of town in
the beginning due to previous
training at another existing facil-
ity, but 1,300-1,500 jobs will be
available once the plant
becomes fully operational. This
will be additional job openings
for the citizens of Okeechobee.
Mr. LaRue recommended
denial for the project based on
inadequate traffic flow capabili-
ty due to the absence of a traffic
impact study and potential
incompatibility with other single
family uses in the area.
Water and sewer availability
have been verbally confirmed,
yet it is still unclear whether
plan expansion improvements
would be needed. The impacts
on the schools have also not
been addressed.
In response to the Mr.
LaRue's objections to the proj-


- 4 -


Mr. Malone, he was denied fund-
ing but did not receive a denial let-
ter or explanation from the T.D.C.
as to why he was turned down.
According to T.D.C. documen-
tation,.when the board went over
special event marketing applica-
tion proposals _at their April 19,
2005, meeting Mr. Malone's appli-
cation packet was incomplete.
Only form D was submitted with a
Headturners3.com yearly advertis-
ing proposal with an unspecified
number of events, and without a
specific cost for the promotional
activity he was proposing. This
proposal did not meet the Okee-
chobee County T.D.C. policies and
procedures for funding.
Form D of the T.D.C. applica-
tion packet is a form for fishing

tournaments that are re-applying.
It asks the name, location, date,
number of anglers, number of
staff, number of family atten-
dance, number of days of tourna-
ment, percentage of out-of-area
anglers and estimated number of
overnight stays per person of the
past tournament.
Missing from the application
were the two-page general and
source of funds information
forms. These forms ask for the
organization name, federal ID
number, address and description
of the event. It also asks for a
description of how the event will
benefit the area as well as a break-
down of expenses, including
advertising. It also asks the
tourism potential, marketing strat-
egy and methods, how and where
brochures or flyers will be distrib-
uted and total T.D.C. funds
requested, as well as the amount
the organization will put up in
matching funds.
According to records, when
T.D.C. met on April 11, 2006, to
consider applications for the
2006/07 fiscal year the Headturn-
ers application packet was again
incomplete. Only form D with an
HT3 invoice in the amount of
$5,000 for proposed events and a
cover letter stating that they would
not agree to providing receipts for
advertising expenditures was sub-
mitted.
The proposal did not follow the
T.D.C. policies for advertising
reimbursement.
The cover letter dated March
16, 2006, had attachments with a
breakdown of the last tournament
HT3 held in Okeechobee March
11-12, 2006. It spelled out the
number of boats, the number of
local anglers and the results/pay-
backs of the tournament.
SMr. Malone alsq/provided the
T.D.C. \ ith the same information
for his. KissimrineeCamp Mack
tournament. He went oh to list the
three dates that HT3 would be in
Okeechobee, and offered two


ect, Mr. Engstrom explained to
the board that the housing
development would be specifi-
cally developed for the develop-
ers and their employees.
When looking to develop the
plant in Okeechobee County,
the developers realized that
there was no affordable housing
for employees, so as a benefit to
retain good employees they
decided to create affordable
housing for them.
The developers -have been
actively involved in the talks
with the Okeechobee Utility
Authority (OUA) in the recent
meetings concerning expansion
of the wastewater treatment
plant. They are fully willing to
pay for traffic issues, if any have
to be addressed, as well as any
school impact fees that are
under development at this time.
Site plans are currently under
way for the adjoining 9.1-acre
parcel. The development will be
completed in three phases -
phase one will consist of 74
units, phase two will consist of
76 units and phase three will

other two-day events.
In his letter, Mr. Malone stated,
"Kathy, I want to be extremely
clear on something with this appli-
cation, we are not interested in
keeping track of stamps,
envelopes and flyers to be reim-
bursed for. We work extremely
hard to 'over' promote people,
businesses and counties that
stand with us on our tournament
trail and we feel it is evident by our
growth that we are on to some-
thing big."
On Sept. 26, 2006, the T.D.C.
met again to consider applications
for advertising reimbursement.
Headturners3 once again sub-
mitted a tournament proposal.
This proposal was in the form of a
cover letter and an invoice. The
letter spelled out Mr. Malone's
plans for the '07 season including
his executive two-day tournament
tour, the 12 one-day series of tour-
neys and the end-of-tour champi-
onships.
As shown on the invoice:
"$3,000, $5,000 and $10,000 pack-
ages are available, not including
the championship for the one-day
tour in the 2007 season. Decide
which package you are interested
in and your deposit would be one-
half of the total amount of tourna-
ment(s) you would like to be
brought to your county. The other
one-half will be due immediately
upon completion of the tourna-
ment(s) that would fulfill HT3's
obligation under the terms of that
package. All balances owed must
be paid either prior to the tourna-
ment or presented on the same
day as the last tournament in
package is completed. No billing
nor mailing of check after day
would be acceptable."
T.D.C. documentation includ-
ing their funding application
states: "Payment is on a reirm-
bursement basis and proof of paid
invoices, tear sheets, or copy of
canceled check (or any other con-
ditions determined by the T.D.C.
board) must be provided to sub-
stantiate payment. Reimburse-
ment may be requested for adver-
tising or promotional costs only,
other expenditures are subject to
refusal of payment."
According to the minutes of the
T.D.C. meeting held Sept. 26, Mr.
Malone's proposal was presented
to the board by Ms. Scott. This pro-
posal included three, one-day
tournaments at a cost of $3,000
($1,000 each), one two-day Exec-
utive Tour tourney at a cost of
$2,500 and one three-day Big
Dawg event at a cost of $5,000.
, The trail has been pulling
many as 75 boats to its touLia-
ments,., , ,
As the board reviewed the pro-
posal, Ms. Scott told them she had
spoken to Mr. Malone to make

Climaco Cardenas, an urban
designer and planner with Royal
Architecture and Design, pre-
sented conceptual drawings of a
site plan and the drawings of the
types of concrete structures that
would be used within the devel-
opment. They wanted to show
the board that while a typical
concrete structure is just a box,
these will be "pretty boxes."
The board is recommending
to the Okeechobee City Council
that the property's future land
use designation be changed from
single family to multi-family.
The board 'also approved the
rezoning application, but
instead of rezoning to residential
multiple family, they agreed to
rezone the property to planned
unit development. This zoning is
acceptable for the developer
and their needs.
In other business, i
The board approved a spe-
cial exception to allow an

age within a heavy commercial

sure that "we were clear regarding
the terms and conditions of this
proposal before presenting (it) to
the board."
She went on to tell the board
that they could decide on what
package they were most interest-
ed. But, she continued, the prices
are firm, (there's) no reimburse-
ment advertising and a deposit of
one-half of the total amount of
tournaments) would be required
and the other half would be due
immediately upon completion of
the tournaments) per the cover
letter attached to the submitted
invoice.
The board discussed the pro-
posal and agreed that T.D.C. could
not meet the terms of this propos-
al since it is not their policy, to pay
a deposit and the balance on the
day of the tournament.
The board advised Ms. Scott to
thank Mr. Malone for his proposal
but his terms and conditions do
not meet T.D.C. policies and pro-
cedures. For a lack of a motion, no
further action was taken on this
item.
Mr. Malone stated that he was
once again turned down for fund-
ing without an explanation or for-
mal denial letter. He said that he
received a telephone call from Ms.
Scott who told him his request
had been denied, but he was not
.given a reason. He said he did
receive an invitation to bring his
tournament trail to Okeechobee
and to use the facilities at the Scott
Driver facility for an undetermined
fee.
To date, a rental fee for the use
of the meeting hall at Scott Driver
has not been established since it
and the restroom facilities are not
ready for use. Policies and proce-
dures for the use of the facility
have not been finalized. The
ramps, however, are open.
The T.D.C. has approved the
following for the fiscal year 2006-

ciation, Okeechobee Main Street

Obituaries


Enrique "Kiki" Camarena grew
up in a dirt-floored house with
hopes and dreams of making a dif-
ference.
Camarena worked his way
through college, served in the
Marines, and became a police offi-
cer. When he decided to join the
U.S. Drug Enforcement Adminis-
tration, his mother tried to talk him
-out of it "I can't not do this," he told
her. "I'm only one person, but I
want to make a difference."
The DEA sent Camarena to work
undercover in Mexico investigating
a major drug cartel believed to
include officers in the Mexican
army, police, and government. On
Feb. 7, 1985, the 37-year-old
Camarena left his office to meet his
wife for lunch Five men appeared at
,the agent's side and shoved him in a
car. One month later, Camarena's
body was found in a shallow grave.
He had been tortured to death.
In honor of Camarena's memo-
ry and his battle against illegal
drugs, friends and neighbors
began to wear red badges of satin.
Parents, sick of the destruction of
alcohol and other drugs, had
begun forming coalitions. Some of
these new coalitions took Camare-
na as their model and embraced
his belief that one person can
make a difference. These coalitions
also adopted. the symbol of
Camarena's memory,the red rib-
bon.
The National Family Partnership
organized the first Nationwide Red
Ribbon Campaign in 1988. Since
that time, the campaign has
reached millions of U.S. children.
In 1997, the Texas Commission on
Alcohol and Drug Abuse began
committing resources to ensure
the continuation of the Red Ribbon
Campaign in Texas, as well.as the


NEHS
hopes and beliefs behind this
grassroots effort to protect children
from the dangers of alcohol and
other drugs. (Courtesy of the Texas
Commission on Alcohol and Drug
Abuse, online at

bon/history.html; reprinted with

The students of the New
Endeavor High School, in conjunc-
tion with the Alpha program, under
the direction of Program Coordina-
tor, Anqie Reiss, have chosen to
observe Red Ribbon Week. All stu-
dents and staff have been invited to
participate and observe the follow-
ing calendar of events:
Monday, Oct. 23, 2006: Wear
red in honor of Red Ribbon Week.
Tuesday, Oct. 24, 2006: Team

Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2006:
We "can" be heroes and "band"
together against drugs day: Stu-
dents bring in a canned food item
to donate to a family in need.
Thursday, October 26, 2006:
Put a "cap" on drugs day: students
may wear a hat to school on this
day to show support for Red Rib-
bon Week.
Friday, Oct. 27, 2006: Take a
shot at being drug free: students
will take a "shot" on the basketball
court for prizes

pete to see who can demonstrate
the most support for Red Ribbon
Week, and could win extra privi-
leges, so plan accordingly!

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
RISKY SITUATION: For those of you who do not like the sex offend-
ers living in Dixie Ranch Acres I don't like it either because I have two
very valuable reasons. They are an 11-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl
who have to walk to the bus stop. This is very dangerous for those men
to be living in a residential area. For those of you who do not care
whether they live there or not, you haven't walked a mile in my shoes
because I worry constantly about these children going to the bus stop
and now I'm scared to death. Their mother works and there is no way
for her to be there because she is guarding other kids who have been in
trouble. It's avery risky situation.

UITERING: Is there anything that can be done about people throw-
ing things like tires, a lawnmower, pipes and all kinds of stuff into
canals? I just wondered if there's anything that can be done about it.
(Editor's Note: This is littering and violation of Florida law. Since the lit-
tering is being done in a waterway, you should call either the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) of the law enforcement
division of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC). The local number for DEP is (863) 462-5888. To contact FWC,
call (561) 625-5122.)

ESCAPED OFFENDER: Has anyone noticed that this is the second sex
offender in Okeechobee that has cut his leg band and escaped and can-
not be found? The first one was caught out of state. This could happen to
any or all of these sex offenders. Editor's Note: The offender, Robert
Robedeau, was arrested Wednesday, Oct. 18, in a motel in Kissimmee.

DEER: How come there was no mention in the Okeechobee News
about the deer that was loose in town on Oct. 14? A lot of people I know,
including myself, would like to know what happened to the deer. Edi-
tor's Note: The buck was in rut and was captured near a pawn shop
downtown. The animal had a broken shoulder. It was tranquilized by
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) law
enforcement personnel and taken to Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation
Center. The animal could not be saved and was euthanized.

SHOCKED: After reading the article in the paper in reference to the
settlement by Mr. Raulerson, I am shocked! It appears that someone in
the police department did not like Mr. Raulerson and it really shows. I
don't know Mr. Raulerson, but coming from a law enforcement family I
say shame on the city and the police department for this obvious
attempt to oust a member of the police force. For those involved in this,
what comes around goes around. What a shame that his daughter's
scholarship was taken away. That is horrible! Obviously someone was
out to get Mr. Raulerson, but to go further as to effect the education of his
daughter? That's just inexcusable! I am very disappointed in this whole
affair. Editor's Note: As a matter of clarification, the scholarship in ques-
tion is the Skip Bryant Memorial Fund and scholarships are awarded
from this fund to the children of local firefighters or members of law
enforcement. When Mr. Raulerson was fired he was no longer a mem-
ber of law enforcement, therefore his daughter was no longer eligible
to receive the scholarship.

FREEBIES: After reading about the city council meeting, I think it's
time to stop the illegal free coffee, donuts and all that stuff to police offi-
cers also, the free cars. What's the difference in that and the FEMA
products that were given to these people that went over there and did
that work? I'm not for one or the other---this s just an observation that I
'think fits al.

PALM BEACH: I am calling regarding the Speak Out entitled "Jobs" in
the Oct. 19 paper. All these people coming over here from Palm Beach
want to complain about having to drive back and forth and they want to
talk about how they're paying high taxes and getting the least amount of
services for their money. Well, they should have kept their high-class self
in Palm Beach instead of coming over here and running the prices of our
homes and stuff up knowing that there are no good paying jobs in Okee-
chobee. If they want a good paying job and expensive house and they
want to live in an expensive world, go back to Palm Beach. Okeechobee
is the country, not the extravagant life.

RENT: Each week my friends and I sit and read the newspaper and
the price of rentals in Okeechobee has gotten really ridiculous. The peo-
ple who are renting these homes need to remember that they are not
going to get the prices that they get in Palm Beach. This is a reality check.

NO DAMAGE: I just read in the Okeechobee News where ex-city
police officer Tommy Raulerson said he took the tarp from FEMA to his
father-in-law in Okeechobee after Hurricane Charlie damaged his
house. Well, I sat here through Charlie and there was no damage in
Okeechobee County. The next day I went to the local hardware store,
here in Okeechobee, and purchased several tarps and other hurricane
supplies and took them to friends and family over in Hardy and DeSoto
counties where the damage was terrible. The people in other counties
needed those supplies more.

RIDICULOUS: This is for the person who has complained about how
they built a beautiful home over here and moved from Palm Beach, but
there are no jobs over here so they still commute to Palm Beach. Well,
maybe we don't want this to be Palm Beach. Maybe you need to move
farther west instead of taking homes from our kids who can't even
afford a home when they work at a decent job in this town. I think it's
disgusting how the kids and local people can't even afford a house and
you're complaining after you have a house. That's ridiculous.

all over the world who come here
to work or study. People from
other countries who are not living
under a democratic way of gov-

enjoy freedom too. That is why it
is so important to allow students
from foreign countries to get their
education through universities in


the United States. When they
return to their country they can
achieve great accomplishments
and improve the lives of their fel-
low countrymen.
Other ways that are useful in

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."


We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

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

The OMS Soccer team com-
pleted its season Wednesday with
a 2-1 loss to Yearling in the first
round of the Treasure Coast Con-
ference Tournament.
The Warriors kept the Year-
lings on the defensive the entire
first half, taking many shots on
goal and keeping possession of
the ball. During the second half,
the tables were turned, as YMS
picked up and put the Warriors on
the defensive. Diego Rodriguez
scored a goal, putting the War-
riors up 1-0. YMS responded with
a goal, and the game was tied.
Unfortunately for the Warriors,
Yearling managed to get one
more in just a few minutes before
the final whistle, taking the game.

Reflections from the Pulpit


The importance of love in everyday language


By Reverend Duane Eatmon,
Pastor of Treasure
Island Baptist church
Love-the word slips into our
conversations almost unnoticed
every day. Turn on the radio or TV
any time of the day or night. You
can't get away from love. It is
crooned on music stations, drama-
tized in soap operas, humorized in
sitcoms, and mocked 'in trash-talk
shows.
The word love has a broad
spectrum of meanings in our cul-
ture. So when we talk about love
these days, it's important to know
exactly what kind of love we're
talking about. For example, if a
man doesn't see the difference
between loving old Bubba, his
hunting dog, loving his favorite put-
ter, and loving his wife, he's in deep
trouble-with his wife, not the
dog. A woman must be aware that
her love for her job, her love for the
dahlias in her garden, and her love
for her children are different levels
of love. And if we are going to
grasp the vital importance of love
as the ultimate right thing to do-
the love that flows from the very
nature of God, we had better know
if we're talking about the kind of
love that saturates our culture
today from such potent centers of
influence as Hollywood, Nashville,

Madison Avenue and MTV
The apostle Paul dedicates an
entire chapter to the topic of love in
I Corinthians 13. In one section, he
dashes off a flurry of descriptive
words and phrases.
We point to this paragraph to
describe God's love. It is a good
description of what love does and
does not do.
Love wills and works for the
good of the loved. Stated another
way, love is making the health,
happiness, and growth of another
person as important to you as your
own.
Is your health, happiness, and
growth important to you? Of
course! We all work hard at staying
happy, safe, secure, and prosper-
ous.
True love demands that we care
as much for the success and devel-
opment of others as we do our-
selves. "Each of you should look
not only to your own interests, but
also to the interests of
others."(Philippians 2:4) "Love
does no harm to its
neighbor." (Romans 13:10) Instead.
of doing harm, love does what is
good and right to others. Love sim-
ply says, "'Treat others right, the
way you want to be treated." It all
goes back to the Golden Rule given
to us by Jesus. "In e\ erthing, do to
others what you would have them


to do to you" (Matthew 7:12).
How does this definition play
out in everyday life? -If you think
it's reasonable for your wife to
keep the kids occupied while you
watch Monday night football, love
requires that you give her a "Mom's
night out" when she requests or
needs one. If you expect your boss
to treat you with respect, love
requires that your treat him or her
with respect and not speak ill of
your boss to coworkers or cus-
tomers.
The loving thing to do in most
situations is not difficult to discern.
Simply put yourself in the shoes of
people involved and ask, "What is
the best I could wish for if it were
me?" When you determine the
answer, love requires that you do


OwXMRiR.B R


the best that you have the opportu-
nity and ability to do.
God wills only the best for every
person. Even our freedom to
choose is a love gift from God, who
considers it in our best interest not
to force us to return His love. God
desires all people to love Him, but
He does not demand that we do.
Similarly, love for others is com-
manded but not demanded by
God. And yet Christ died for all,
even those who turn their backs on
Him.
Paul wrote, "If we are faithless,
He remains faithful; He cannot
deny Himself' (2 Timothy 2: 13). To
give with no demand for return is
in God's nature, and therefore it is
the'nature of true love, for God is
love.

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.
SMore 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
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

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

c The sum of these costs is referred o as OPIT/.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.
Q 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:







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.

0 Hymer says your housing expense-to-incothe ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
0 The sum of these costs is referred to as 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.
