Joe Netgron: Education is a. top priority


Joe Negron, a Republican candidate for the 16th Congressional district, spoke on Tues-
day, Oct. 24, at the Village Square Restaurant to members of the Kiwanis, Republican
Party and other key officials from the community.

Negron not ashamed to be in politics


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News .,
Republican 16th Congres-
sional district candidate Joe
Negron visited Okeechobee at.
the Village Square Restaurant
on Tuesday to speak to local
members of the community
including the Kiwanis, Republi-
can Party members, Sheriff Paul
May and School Superintendent
Dr. Patricia Cooper.
Joe Arnold, school board
member and Republican Party
state committeeman, organized
the gathering:
SMr. Arnold said he regarded
Mr. Negron as "A good friend
who has done so much for pub-
lic education. He deserves the
position as District 16 Congress-
man."
Mr. Negron spoke about
issue surrounding former U.S.
Representative Mark Foley, who
recently resigned his position
because of inappropriate e-
mails to pages. Because of the
timing of his resignation, Mr.
Foley's name will remain on the
General Election ballot. Howev-
er, to cast their ballot for Mr.
Negron, voters should cast their
vote for Mr. Foley.
Mr. Negron said volunteers
have been handing out infor-
mation to voters with the start
of early voting on Monday, Oct.
23.


"People ihae liiJguied it out
and understand it," he said.
"People are not going to penal-
ize me for something I did not,
do."
According to Mr.. Negron
their campaign is making
steady progress which was
proven by national news that
the seat for the 16th Congres-
sional District has moved from
leaning toward a victory for
Democrat Tim Mahoney, to a
toss-up.
He said it will "ultimately
come down to if they want
someone who has a track
record. My top priorities have
been kindergarten through
12fth grade public education
and the court system."
Mr. Negron spoke of moni-
toring some of the issues that
Mr. Foley was working on to
make sure the concerns of Dis-
trict 16 do not fall through the
cracks in light of this incident.
He. encouraged early voting
and for the Republicans to edu-
cate their friends and family to
make sure that everyone under-
stands that in order to vote for
Mr. Negron, one must vote the
placeholder (Mark Foley) name.
Questions were presented
about the court decisions
regarding signs being placed at
polling stations.
Mr. Negron stated he doesn't
like the idea of campaigning at


'hv .plling centers
"But educating the public as
to what their vote will count for
is different," he said, "I think the
actions L ) the Democrats have
backfired, though, by making
them look like they are trying to
confuse the voters by not allow-
ing them to know what their
votes will count towards."
The Democratic Party has
filed and won a lawsuit banning
signs at polling places that
would, in short, indicate to vot-
ers that by casting their ballot
for Mr. Foley they are actually
voting for Mr.. Negron. An
appeal has been filed and the
Republican Party expects
results on Thursday, Oct. .26, or
Friday, Oct. 27.
Mr. Negron also spoke on
wasteful spending and the need
for government "to live within
its means."
He also spoke of programs
to assist smaller counties, such
as Okeechobee, in areas where
property values exceed the
demand.
In closing he thanked all for
their support and made one
final declaration.
"What Foley did is complete-
ly inexcusable, but I am not
going to crawl in a hole and be
ashamed to be in politics
because of what he did."

Arguments:
FOR: In Florida, nearly 29,000'
deaths are attributable to tobac-
co use annually, and the threat of
tobacco is greatest among
youth. Florida receives more
than $360 million annually from
the tobacco settlement, yet only
SI million is used to educate
Florida's youth about the dan-
gers of tobacco use. Factoring in
inflation and increased 'cost of
advertising, $57 million appears
to be both reasonable and fiscal-
ly responsible. ...
AGAINST: Everyone agrees
kids should not smoke. Howev-
er, the $57 million a year will be
coming out of our state's general
revenue budget, which means
less money for schools and
roads. Technically, this proposed
amendment could be achieved
through the legislature instead of
the Constitution.
What Your Vote Means
YES If approved by voters,
Amendment #4 would require
that 15 percent ($57 million) of
the 2005 tobacco settlement
payments to Florida would fund
a statewide tobacco education
and prevention program.
NO If Amendment #4,i's
not approved, by voters, Florida
would continue to receive allo-
cations as set by the Legislature
and approved by the Governor.

Submitted to Okeecnobee News
Mark J. Chittum has been named as Okeechobee County's
new Health Department administrator. Mr. Chittum began
his duties on Oct. 20.


Current allocations are set at I
percent of the tobacco settle-
ment money.
Official Financial Impact
Statement to Appear on the Bal-
lot: This amendment requires
state government to appropriate
approximately $57 million in
2007 for the comprehensive
Statewide' Tobacco 'Education
aind Prevention Program There-
after, this amount will increase
annually with inflation. This'
spending is expected to reduce
tobacco consumption As a
result, some long-term savings
to state and local government
health and insurance programs
are probable, but indeterminate.
Also, minor revenue loss to state
government is probable,, but
indeterminate.:..
Additional Financial Effects
Based on the Financial Impact
Estimating Conference's
Research & Public \Wobrkshops:
.* Education, prevention and
enforcement costs \will increase.
The .state, will be: required to
appropriate approximately $57
million from Tobacco Settlement
funds inr 2007, .which.will be
adjusted. 'annually for inflation.
Because the Tobacco Settlement
funds are currently fully obligat-
ed, the requirement to spend
these dollars on the specified
programs will result in reduc-
tions to existing programs or the
replacement of those dollars
with $57 million of other state
funds: .- : .
Some long-term savings to

is probable. The Comprehensive
Statewide. Tobacco Education
and Prevention Program is
expected to reduce tobacco con-
sumption. Because of this, state
and local governments that offer
health and insurance programs
will probably experience some
long-term savings. However, the
savings resulting from the pre-
vention program are indeterrni-;
nate. Many factors besides- the'
pre mention program contribute'
to the decline of tobacco use.'In
addition, the number of persons,
particularly youth, w\ho \\ill stop
using tobacco, for how long they
will stop, or who will never use
tobacco is unknown.
Minor loss of revenue to the
state is probable; but is indeter-
minate. Revenue to the state
from the Tobacco Settlement
payments and from the Cigarette
and Other Tobacco Products
Taxes are dependent in part on
tobacco sales. The statewide
campaign proposed by the con-
.stitutional amendment is expect-
ed to reduce consumption by
some unknown amount. Many
other factors may also con-
tribute to the decline of tobacco
use, including, affected opinions
about tobacco companies fol-
lowing the multi-state settle-
ments, increasing cost of ciga-
rettes, increasing tax rates on
tobacco products, and the
implementation of smoking reg-
ulations in public places. Conse-
quently, minor loss of revenue is
probable, but the amount attrib-
utable to the prevention pro-
gram cannot be determined.

PSAT given at OHS


despite trouble
By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News


After a rocky start, the Prelimi-
nary SAT/National Merit Scholar-
ship Qualifying Test (PSAT) was
administered at Okeechobee
High School on Oct. 18.
The PSAT is given to all sopho-
mores to give them a taste of what
the SATs will be like when they
take it next year. It also gives the
equivalent that they would
receive on the real thing if they
were taken at this time.
The option of taking the test
was also open to the junior class.
Taking the PSAT in the junior year
is a pre-requisite for eligibility in
receiving the National Merit
Scholarship.
Out of the thousands of stu-
dents that took the test, the 50,000
with the highest scores through-
out the nation will be selected to
become either commended stu-
dents or semifinalists: Out of the.
16,000 semifinalists, 15,000 will
then be named National Merit
Scholars. There is a $2500 schol-
arship given out to each finalist


and they are automatically eligi-
ble for a number of other scholar-
ships.
This year 83 juniors took the
test in hopes of making a high
enough score to make the cut. All
juniors were offered the chance
to sign up for the test.
"I encouraged the students to
take the test," said junior guid-
ance counselor Wendy Pageant.
"It helps them to see what skills
they need to improve before they
take the real SAT.
"It also provides them with a
detailed explanation of what they
missed," Ms. Pageant added..
The morning of the test was
riddled with a number of electri-
cal problems that shut off power
and caused the test to be pushed
back an hour.

PROUD: I have to comment about the "jobs" comment from
Oct. 19. My wife and I relocated here from Palm Beach in July. We
came here to live in the country and found that our real estate dollar
went much farther than it did in Palm Beach. The people have been
nicer, the pace much slower and prices much more reasonable. My
high tech business has done better here in Okeechobee than it ever
did in Palm Beach. It is sad that the person who wrote that article
fails to see here what my wife and I came for after 35 years in Palm
Beach. You folks have a wonderful city and county that you call
home. We are proud to call it home, too. Not everyone moving here
from Palm Beach thinks like those folks.

BLINDED: I have been a Democrat all my life and I'm proud to
be. I read the Democratic ad in the News and I was disturbed by it.
The city elections have always been non-partisan and they have
functioned well over the years. Yes, the city has made mistakes and it
has been a combination of both parties. Let's not forget we just
voted two of our own party commissioners put of office. "Enough
we say." Let's clean up our own party before we try and disrupt
what has worked for many years as a non-partisan race. When we
begin to dictate what we want, are we any better than the other
party? Let's keep our Democratic dignity. The county elections are
Democrat vs. Republican, the city isn't. We are a democratic society
and if a Democrat or Republican crosses over because the best per-
son is in the other party and is best for our community then cross
over. We are sometimes blinded by party affiliation and not what is
best for our county or city.

IT'S THAT TIME: When you see little old ladies driving these great
big duallies you know it's the season. They're baaaaack.

CAMPAIGNING: I really don't think that we should have to pay
for the president to fly from state to state to campaign for his Repub-
lican friends. After all, it's not just Republican money it's Democ-
ratic money too.

RAULERSON: Unless there was something missing in the article
about Major Raulerson's demise with the police department, I don't
understand why he was subsequently fired. There was certainly
nothing in that newspaper article that would lead me to believe that
he did anything wrong. It just doesn't make any sense. Looks like a
railroad job to me.

IRAQ: I'd like to comment on the Iraq situation. First it was
weapons of mass destruction. Then we went in there. We did, I did-
n't, but our troops did. God bless them. And then it was get rid of
Saddam. And then, after that, let's make that place like America. You
cannot make that place like America because the Israelis and the
Palestinians have been fighting forever. God bless all the service peo-
ple who have lost their lives over there. It is time to get out of there.

WHICH IS WORSE: I'd like to say what Mark Foley did was repre-
hensible but he only tried to possibly abuse our kids, which is very
wrong. But, the Democrats are killing our kids by abortion. Which is
worse?

ABUSE: I'd like to say that when you hear about anybody in the
ministry or the priesthood abuses kids it's always the Catholics and'
I'd just like to say I read where a Baptist youth counselor abused chil-
dren too. It just seems like it's always the Catholics. The press is
always on the Catholics but they're not facing the possibility that it
could be an\ body Baptists, Nfethodists, scout leaders or coaches.
You all needto get off this Catholic thing because you might be going
to church thinking we're that bad (I'm Catholic) and look at who is
ministering to you. He might be abusing kids, too.

JUNKI I've been reading about Code Enforcement going about
the city and county handing out papers to property owners for beau-
tification, untagged vehicles, lawn overgrowth, yard mess, etc. That
would cover about every other house in the subdivision directly
behind the rodeo grounds. Code enforcement has driven by a few
times and done a few things but nothing serious. Don't suggest call-
ing. That hasn't worked. There are some houses that are well taken
care of that have to look outside at the trash and cars, etc. up and
down the street. I read where they gave someone a notice last
December. Ten months is \ ay too long to give someone to cleanup
their yard and home. There are rats and snakes crawling around the
properties coming from the junk in the yard. So if code enforcement
would start coming out here and getting our subdivision cleaned up;
and the law would come out here and arrest the drug dealers that do
their business in the streets at night; and the Humane Society would
pick up roaming cats and dogs; then we taxpayers would appreciate
you a whole lot more and thank you for a job well done. Until then
we are waiting for paid agencies to do their jobs in our area.

Letter to the Editor


It was legal,
but was It right?
On Oct. 12, 2006, while at
work, we noticed a car parked in
the road at the end of our drive-
way for more than 30 minutes.
We decided to check on the driver
and see if everything was OK.
My co-worker went to check,
came back and said she needed
to call 9-1-1. The reason being the
driver of this car appeared to be
unconscious, the car engine was
running and an open bottle of
vodka was sitting in the front pas-
senger seat. We assumed that he
was OK but, more importantly,
we were wereworried that he would
wake up and try to drive away.
It took approximately 10 min-
utes for the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office deputy to arrive.
As we watched, the deputy shook
the driver's arm twice and then
slapped the top of the car two to
three times to get a response from
this man in the driver's seat.
Never did we see the deputy
give. the man any type of field
sobriety test.
The deputy and the driver


spoke, the deputy then had the
driver get out of the car and they
continued to talk. The deputy had
the driver pout the remaining
vodka onto the ground. The driver
lit a cigarette and then.began talk-
ing on his cell phone.
Within a few minutes a car
pulled up with two men in it. As
we watched, the deputy, the driv-
er and the two men had a conver-
sation. That formerly uncon-
scious man, who had an open
bottle of vodka on the front seat of
his car, was driven away by one of'
the two men. The other spoke to
the deputy again and then drove
the car away. I couldn't believe
my eyes. The deputy let him go!
My co-worker and I went out
and talked to the deputy. I asked
him if it was legal for him to let
that man go when it took him so
long to get him awake with an
open bottle of vodka in the front
seat.
The deputy said the driver was
a good man and had some prob-
lems. He also stated that the man
had a CDL. He also stated that it
was at his discretion whether or
not to arrest him. I asked for his
card and stated I was going to see

the sheriff, which I did.
The sheriff said he would look
into it. In approximately 30 min-
utes. I received a phone call from
a corporal informing me that the
deputy had the discretion to arrest
or not. The officer did nothing
wrong. The corporal also
informed me that the man had no
DUI record.
The corporal also told me that
there wasn't a person in the world
that would change my mind
about a drunk driver because of
my past history. I told the corporal
probably not. I have friends that
are dead because of drunk driv-
ers. Just because the officer was
legally correct doesn't make it
right.
How many innocent people.
have died, will die or become
handicapped or brain injured
because of an officer's discretion?
Do I want to ruin this man's
life? No, I do not. Do I think he
needs a wake up call to get some
help before he hurts himself or
worse yet someone else?
Absolutely.
I thought law enforcement
was supposed to be tough on
drunk drivers. So, let me ask you,


the public, how many of you have
had to bury friends and loved
ones because of a drunk driver,
possibly due to an officer's discre-
tion? Should law enforcement
personnel have discretion when it
comes to drunk driving because
of the danger? My answers to
those questions are: several and
no anyone drinking and driving
should be arrested.
While it may have been legal,
it wasn't right. and it could cause
someone down the road to lose
their life.

Sandra Davis

Editor's Note: We contacted
Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul
May about this incident, and fol-
lowing is his response. "In
response to your letter, the
deputy, after speaking with the
individual, made the determina-
tion that he did not need to be
arrested in this incident. Deputies
are able to use their discretion in
all cases and I will stand by the
decision this deputy made, with
the facts as he knew them at the

PSC Oks Embarq inspection plans


TALLAHASSEE Addressing
Concerns regarding the risk of
wooden pole failure in storm
events, the Florida Public Ser-
vice Commission (PSC)
approved a comprehensive
wooden pole inspection plan
Tuesday for Embarq Florida, Inc.
(Embarq).
"This plan is part of the larger
effort to' reduce the state's vul-
nerability to hurricanes," said
Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
Under the plan approved by
the Commission, Embarq will
be responsible for inspecting all
of its wooden poles at least once


every eight years. Embarq must
take corrective action on any
poles found to be defective or
not strong enough to carry their
load. Trussing or bracing may be
used in areas with greater pole
decay due to environmental
problems or bug infestation.
Embarq maintains approxi-
mately 38,800 wood poles with-
in its service area.
In a Feb. 2006 order, the
Commission required all of
Florida's incumbent local
exchange companies (ILEC5) to
implement wood pole inspec-
tion programs based upon an


eight-year cycle. Similar require-
ments were alsoo made for Flori-.
da's investor-owned electric util-
ities.
The wooden pole inspection
program is one of several meas-
ures taken to detect decay and
help prevent structural failures
of telecommunications and
electric systems during storms.
Other measures include an audit
of joint-use attachment agree-
ments, a transmission structure
inspection program, and an
analysis ,of pole failures after
severe storms.

FDLE earns 'Triple Crown' of accreditation Community Events


The Florida Department of
Law Enforcement has earned its
third re-accreditation of the year
demonstrating superior per-
formance and compliance with
state and national standards.
FDLE was awarded re-accredit-
ed status Oct. 11, by the state
law enforcement accrediting
body, the Commission for Flori-
da Law Enforcement Accredita-
tion (CFA) at a commission
meeting held in Cocoa Beach.
This represents FDLE's third CFA
re-accreditation, demonstrating
compliance with 250 profes-
sional standards on the agency's
policies, procedures, manage-
ment operations and support
services.
In addition to this, FDLE was
awarded two other re-accredita-
tions this year. FDLE was also
notified by the American Society
of Crime Lab Directors/Labora-
tory Accreditation Board
(ASCLD/LAB) this week that the
department's Pensacola labora-
tory has been approved for re-
accreditation. This now com-
pletes the successful
re-accreditation of the FDLE
Crime Laboratory System. Six of
FDLE crime labs were re-accred-
ited in May. The Pensacola labo-
ratory, which was badly dam-
aged during Hurricane Ivan in


2004, completed its remediation
in Sept. 2006. This is the fourth
time that FDLE's labs have been
successfully re-accredited and
this accomplishment represents
a distinct honor for the agency.
In July, FDLE received the
department's fourth re-accredi-
tation award from the national
law enforcement accrediting
body, the Commission on
Accreditation for Law Enforce-
ment Agencies (CALEA). The
FDLE had to comply with 446
standards in order to gain reac-
credited status. This marked
FDLE's fifth consecutive accredi-
tation award, placing the agency
in an elite category to receive
Meritorious Recognition, a sta-
tus only awarded to agencies
sustaining accreditation for at
least 15 consecutive years. Addi-
tionally, FDLE was recognized as
a CALEA Flagship Agency for
having at least three success-
ful onsite assessments and
receiving unconditional re-
accreditation awards. CALEA
also commended FDLE for its
Child Abduction Response
Teams.
"This has truly been a banner
year for us," Commissioner Ger-
ald Bailey said. "These re-
accreditations mark the 'triple
crown' of accreditations. Our


success is due to an agency-
wide effort and the tremendous
commitment to excellence
demonstrated daily by the 1,900
members of our agency."
Undergoing the voluntary
state and national accreditation
process provides an agency with
a quality assurance review and


Since 1929

encourages intense self-scruti-
ny, resulting in more efficient
and effective daily operations.
Becoming accredited by CALEA,
CFA and ASCLD is considered a
significant accomplishment and
this status is held in high esteem
by the criminal justice commu-
nity.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Santa Display

It's a wonderful feeling to live in a home that's dec-
orated for the holidays, and this big, full-color out-
door display is a fun and easy way to spread some
cheer around the neighborhood.
The Santa Display, which can be set up in the yard
or on the roof, includes Santa Claus, Mrs. Claus, the
sleigh, eight reindeer and the family cat. Santa and
Mrs. Claus both stand almost six feet tall.
The only materials needed are the posters, a few
sheets of exterior plywood, waterproof glue, paint
and sealer.
The whole family can help put the figures togeth-
er. Just glue the posters onto plywood, smooth out
the bubbles, saw around the outer edges and paint the
sides and backs black. Make stakes or stands from
the remaining plywood or galvanized pipe, and set
the display up where desired.

Santa Display (No. C20)... $59.95
Snow Family Display (No. C6)... $34.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)
