Pumpkins are
colorful, delicious
It's Pumpkin Time!! I
absolutely ADORE pumpkins
and this time of year.. .yay! But
did you know that besides the
glorious beauty of these great
big squash (yes, they are a type
of winter squash), they are also
massively nutritious? You could
ostensibly eat the big old pump-
kin you bought your kids to use
as a decoration or not. The
big guys are rather stringy, the
smaller sugar pumpkins, the
kind used to make pies, are bet-
ter. But why go to all that trou-
ble? I say forget it what a
colossal mess! Life is too short
for that kind of gourd surgery.
Why not just get 100 percent
pumpkin in a can and call it a
day? That's easy button easy
and ii %\on'l bend your budget
out of place either.
What to do with that canned
pumpkin, you say? Well, you
can make a delicious cream of
pumpkin soup, add some
pumpkin puree to your beef
stew or chili (really it's good,
try about /2 cup just mix it
right in) or try my absolutely
delicious pumpkin bread
recipe.
How ever you get your
pumpkin, just make sure you
get it. Pumpkin is chocked full of
phytonutrients, magnesium,
potassium and vitamin C.
Pumpkin is one of nature's best
sources of beta carotene-you
can tell by the bright orange
color.
Here's the pumpkin soup
and pumpkin bread recipes.

new facility on Tuesday, Oct. 30

The building was demol-

Since the hurricanes,
Martha's House outreach and
administrative staff has worked
for a 18 months from a 10-foot x
44-foot modular office that was
set on the property.
Since February of 2006,
Martha's House has rented two

area residents had taken advan-
tage of the chance to vote early
and had cast their ballots for the

Local group spreads

God's love in Amazon


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
A group of people from
Okeechobee recently went to
the Amazon River to make a dif-
ference for the Lord. However, it
seems that the trip had a pro-
found effect on them.
There were eight people
from First Baptist Church of
Okeechobee and six from the
First Baptist Church of Mobile,
Ala., including a dentist and a
doctor from Troy, Pa., aboard
the Marco Polo a boat that
makes regular mission trips on
the Amazon River.
The 208-foot long boat,
operated by Amazon Vision
Ministries, provides living and
travel accommodations for
short-term volunteer medical,
dental and evangelistic teams.
It has a crew of seven plus
translators and can accommo-


date about 20 passengers.
Amazon Vision Ministries is
operated by retired U.S. Navy
Commander Derek George.
The Okeechobee team con-
sisted of Carolyn Myers; Carin,
Sport and Susie Pickering; Jim
and Ruthi Pippin; and, Bud and
Shirley Lewis.
The group left Miami on Sept.
29 and flew to Manaus, Brazil, a
town on the Amazon River that is
about 1,500 miles inland. The
next day they arrived on the
Marco Polo where they served as
medical and dental assistants and
vacation Bible teachers. In addi-
tion, they worked in personal
evangelism before returning to
Okeechobee on Sunday, Oct. 8.
During the course of the trip,
and their visit to two Amazon
River villages, the doctor saw 230
people and the dentist saw 114

patients. With medical, dental and
evangelistic visits, the group of vol-
untary missionaries made contact
with about 500 people. Of those
500,98 people accepted Christ. The
group worked with the children at
vacation Bible 'school and had
church services at night.
Mr. Lewis was head of the
Okeechobee delegation and
worked, on the evangelistic team,
and visited from house to house.
On Sunday morning, he taught a
*Sunday school class through an
interpreter .- "
A typical day began with break-
fast .and a brief devotion on the
boat. They would spend from 8:30
until 11:30 a.m. in medical or den-
tal work, house-to-house evange-
lization orworkingwith the kids.
Then the group would go back
to the boat and have lunch. Every-
thing closed down at midday for a
siesta. About 1:30 p.m., theywould
head back to the village to continue
the morning's work. At night, there
%were church services.
It was very hot, even by. Okee'-
chobee standards. The group was
thankful for the air conditioning


aboard the boat.
Many of the people in the vil-
lages live in floating houses at the
edge of the river. The Marco Polo
carries nine, 17-foot aluminum
boats equipped with 25 horsepow-
er outboard motors for house-to-
housevisits.
Some of the houses are also
located on the riverbank. The level
of the Amazon River fluctuates as
much as 200 to 250 feet. When the
Okeechobee group was there, the
river was in the low stage. There-
fore, it was a steep climb up the
bank to the houses built on land.
Next spring the river will be level
with the topQf the bank.
Because the houses have no,
doors, the custom is to clap your
,hands to ask for admission.
Evenr though electric service is
sporadic, the houses all have satel-
lite dishes and the people are avid
soccer fans. Because they are on
the equator, the dishes are pointed
straight up. ,
There was definitely a need for
the Marco Polo's visit because there
are no churches in the area, but
some Brazilian ministers are sched-
uled follow up on the converts.
Shirley Lewis \\as impressed
with the beauty of the jungle. In the
jungle, she could see the beauty of

God's creation. She said the people
were very grateful and thankful for
the attention they received. The
highlight of the trip for her was
sharing the love of God with the
people.
Carolyn Myers worked with the
dentist from Mobile. She said he
prayed with every patient.
She also assisted the doctor in
treating a man who had cut his toe
badly with a machete. She felt that
her job was to plant seed, not press
for decisions. She also went house
to house giving away Bibles.
Even though the trip was not
about numbers. Mrs. Myers said six
of the doctor's patients accepted
the Lord.
She said even though the peo-I
ple live a meager life, they are
happy and very friendly. They don't
know they are poor by American
standards. Like the others in the
group, she felt that the Lord had
called heron this trip.
Mrs. Myers said she thoroughly
enjoyed the trip and definitely
would go back.


She said she had always heard
the term e "Amazon" used to
describe tall women. However, she
discovered that women who live in
the Amazon region are actually
very short.
Overall, she said the trip was a
life changing and humbling experi-
ence.
Jim Pippin was on the evangel-
ism team and helped with children.
He also worked with the dentist.
He, too, was impressed with how
grateful the people were. He said
the children appreciated simple
things like crayons. He made indi-
vidual house visits. Each morning a
three-person team would go out in
the aluminum boats to visit the
floating houses.
Even though he had no idea
what he was getting into before the
trip, Mr. Pippin said he would be
willing to go back. The first time he
did not know what to expect. He
said the next time he would know
what to expect and have a better
idea of how he could be of more
sern ice to the group.

other services.
They have already raised a por-
tion of the funds from the commu-
nity towards this match by selling
plaques that will go on a Wall in
the new facility. :
According to Ellen Higinboth-
am, public information officer for
DCF's. District 15, "Grants for capi-
tol improvements are the hardest
to get, especially in this large of an
amount. We are really pleased to
be able to present this to Martha's
House for all the wonderful work
they do."
"When this first started, we
were involved in a conference call
where different people were
applying for the same money,"
said Martha's House board presi-


Voting

Continued From Page 1
"A lot of people really like it
(early voting)," said Mrs. Chandler.
"People can do it on their own
terms and it gives them more time.
And if you have to have any type of
change-- such As a change in your
name or address we can do it so
much quicker than on election
day."
MI'rs. Chandler, who is in her
10th year as the supervisor of elec-
tions, is' also. optimistic that
because so many have already vis-
ited the polls, that more people will
vote in the general election than
did in the primary. Only 28 percent
of the registered voters in Okee-
chobee County went to the polls in
September. That means of the
18,795 registered voters in Okee-
chobee County, only 5,273 voted.
"I don't know why it was so
low," said she said. "It was system-
atic throughout the state. I'm really
anxious to see what voters will do
in the general election."
Statewide, only 19.6 percent of
the voters went to the polls in Sep-
tember. Around the area, Mrs.


dent Keith Stripling. "Stephanie
Locke brought. a very large stack
of papers and told me I had to sign
every page in multiple places. This
grant took a lot of work on behalf
of all the staff of Martha's House.
By the staff demonstrating the
need in the community we are
thankful that the grant money was
awarded to Martha's House."
The District 15 DCF administra-
tor Vern Melvin presented the
check for $290,283 to Ms. Locke,
Mr. Stripling and Linda Utt, treas-
urer for Martha's House.
"This is an exciting time for
Martha's House, as many out-
reach staff have had to work out of
the shelter for the last two years,"
said Ms. Locke. "We are all thank-
ful to have received this grant to
build this much-needed facility."
The building will be construct-
ed by Ted Starr Construction
under the supervision of Danny


Chandler said the voter turnout
mirrored the low. turnout
statewide. She said voter turnout in
these areas was: West Palm Beach,
15 percent; St. Lucie County, 16.9
percent; Highlands County, 22 per-
cent; and Indian River County, 25
percent.
"I will be so disappointed if they
don't turn out for the general elec-
tion," she said. "But, how high we
get is still the question."
She said she is expecting an
increase in voting across the board
- early voting, absentee votes and
voting on election day.
One reason for the low turnout
may have been that voters weren't
selecting a president.
"That's the high water mark,"
she said. "That's the one that gets
people out"
Locally, voters on Nov. 7 will
choose a District 4 commissioner
for the Okeechobee County Board
of County Commissioners. In the
city, five candidates are vying for
the two seats that are up for elec-
tion. Those candidates are incum-
bents Lowry Markham and Dowl-
ing Watford, and challengers Eric
Myers, Jim Vensel and Clayton
Williams.


Creech. The new Outreach Facili-
ty will include six offices, a kitch-
enette, a reception area and a
large conference room where
support groups and training will
take place.
Martha's House offers many
services to the community on an
outreach basis such as legal
advocacy, an attorney to repre-
sent victims at injunction hear-
ings, rape risk reduction. educa-

According to Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
reports, that agency along with the
Highlands County Sheriff's Office
and the Drug Enforcement Admin-
istration (DEA) had placed Arel-
lano under surveillance. The sur-
veillance began Sept. 25.
On Oct. 19 DEA agents took
custody of 56.7 grams (2 ounces)
of a substance taken from Arel-
lario. The substance was field test-
ed and indicated a positive result
for the presence of cocaine, stated
the OCSO report.
The report goes on to say that
Arellano had agreed to sell under-
cover officers 4,ounces of cocaine.
The 'buy' was to take place on Oct.
26 at Arellano's home on N.W.

sonnel moved in to arrest Arellano,
a man was seen running from the
home. The man was arrested and
later identified as Rojas.
The report states that Arellano
also ran from the home, then was
seen running into a yard in the
4300 block of N.W. 18th Street. He
was later apprehended while hid-
ing under a mobile home there.
Witness statements indicated
that Arellano entered the mobile
home without invitation, but was
forcibly removed from the home
by a male inhabitant.
The OCSO report then states
that during a search of the area,
approximately 139 grams of a
powder-like substance was found
in a white plastic bag on the corner
of the mobile home's roof. The
substance was field tested and indi-
cated a positive result for the pres-
ence of cocaine, added the report.
The suspected cocaine was
turned over to the DEA.

Second grade
Congratulations to the stu-
dents who have 100 steps for 100
Book Challenge: Berenice Garcia,
Kailee Alvarado, Christoper Arm-
strong, Candace McGlamory.
Diana Jaimes, Tommi White
and Aliyah Frank have read for 25
HOURS! Way to go!


We have all been working
hard in math. We are learning to
regroup. The kids are excited
about the.Halloween Parade and
can't wait to show off our cool
costumers!
Fourth grade
Mr. Goff's class is working
hard on earning their AR points.
Those students who met their
goal last quarter were rewarded
with a lunch time field trip to
Golden Corral. Our whole class
wants to earn that trip this quar-
ter. In science we are learning
about heat and light. We are
learning the difference between
conduction and convection and
the difference between reflection
and refraction. In math we are


learning about different types of
graphs and how to make them.
We are still working on memoriz-
ing our multiplication facts. In sci-
ence we have enjoyed learning
about the Castillo De San Marcos.
What an amazing fort that was!
In writing we are working on
making our expository writings
more vibrant by using juicy
words. We have learned about
the different types of figurative
language and have practiced
using them. We will be fusing
them into our writings to make
our writings come alive with
descriptions.
Grade four is busy as usual.
The fourth graders were ahead of
the fifth graders with A/R points
until this past week; now the mad
push is on to beat them again!
Congrats to the fourth graders,
we have earned over 1000 A/R
points for the school we are so
proud! The fourth graders keep
reading up a storm. In math, mul-
tiplication tables and problem
solving have us busy as well as
creating graphs and charts from
data. Parents don't forget about
Red Ribbon Week, we are doing
our bestto pledge against drugs.


Our next Freaky Friday is com-
ing up in November, students
who work continuously and have
great behavior automatically earn
the fun day. We hope there are
many rooms filled that day for
some fun and learning. Check
you child's agenda daily to see
how their behavior is, make a
teacher conference if you are
unsure of how your child is
behaving and working in class.
Remember to return report cards
as soon as possible too.
In Mrs. Pritchard's class, Eliza-
beth Solorzano was a recent Stu-
dent of the Week along with
Brian Garza and Brittany Sain.
Happy Birthday to: Kirby Dobbs,
Andrea McKinnley, and Devin
Rucks. Students are polishing
their skills with writing exposito-
ries and we will begin narratives
right away. We also took a prac-
tice FCAT writing plus test which
tests our grammar and our ability
to show our understanding of the
writing process. In science, we
are working our way through
some physical science concepts


and in social studies how Eng-
land, Spain and France all fought
over the state of Florida in its early
history. Many students earned
some extra credit doing a time
log a few weeks ago and shortly
we will be getting ready to pres-
ent another oral poem to our


classmates. Mrs. Pritchard would
like to thank all of her students in
both classes for showing excel-
lent citizenship on our field trip to
the Dolly Hand Theater last week
and with the subs when all the
fourth grade teachers were gone.
Thanks!

Guaranteed rural housing loans


The US Department of Agri-
culture Rural Development
offers a Single Family Guaran-
teed Rural Housing Program
(GRH) designed to assist low:
and moderate income, credit
worthy families and individuals
in buying existing or building
new homes in rural areas. This
is made possible by the depart-
ment's Rural Development's
guarantee of loans made by
conventional lenders.
To qualify, applicants, must
be under the moderate-income
limit for the county in which
they would live, have an accept-
able credit history, and ade-
quate and dependable income
sufficient to meet all obligations.
In Okeechobee County, the
maximum qualifying income for
a family of four is $68,500 and
$54,850 for a couple. The appli-
cant's income and loan repay-
ment ability will dictate the max-
imum loan amount. The
applicant must be the
owner/occupant of the property.
This program requires no
down payment and no monthly
mortgage insurance. There is a
one-time, up-front guarantee fee
for program purchase loans
which is currently 2.0 percent of
the loan amount. Ample guaran-
teed housing funding is avail-
able for the current fiscal year
which runs from Oct: 1, 2007 to
Sept. 30, of 2008. Loans may be
made for up to 102 percent of
the appraised value for the pur-
chase of a home and, in some
cases, may include closing
costs. There is no limit to the
seller's contributions toward
closing costs.
Homebuyers may make
application with participating
lenders. You may call the Okee-
chobee Rural Development


office at (863) 763-.3345, ext. gram fl)er For more informa-

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.con/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our Speak
Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or send-
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.
GAS PRICES: Does anyone know what's been happening in
Okeechobee with the gas prices the last couple of days? It's like one
tried to take the lead in a follow-the-leader game by increasing the
gas prices and not all the service stations played the game. So Friday
evening we noticed they went back to their lower price. It will be
interesting to see if the other stations follow. Was this an effort to
make a little more profit because the snowbirds are coming back?

SOBRIETY: Whatever happened to the real A.A. and N.A. meet-
ings? Aren't we to help each other, lift each other up and not kick
someone when they are down? Aren't we to be positive to each
other and not have a negative attitude toward one another? Isn't that
why we want to become sober, to find peace and happiness in life?
Here is to one moment at a time, one minute at a time, one hour at a
time and one day at a time.

OHS BAND: Congratulations to our high school band for a supe-
rior job on Saturday. These kids have worked long, hard hours for
the last three months to achieve this rating. It's a shame they are not
supported more by the community.

GUNFIRE: This is concerning the increase of gunfire in my neigh-
borhood. It seems to happen at any time of the day and any day of
the week, with weekends the worst of all. Does anyone think that
it's safe to shoot firearms off on your property? Does anyone think
they know what the law says on the subject?

UNNECESSARY SHOOTING: I don' believe gunfire is appropriate.
People with five acres think they own a ranch. Maybe a shot or two
once in a while to kill a cottonmouth, but other than that there
should not be gunfire. If it gets too much, call the sheriff. Unneces-
sary gunfire is dangerous.

SHOOTING LAWS: There are certainly laws regarding firing a
weapon in the direction of a dwelling. Unless the person has put up
a berm to stop the bullet from traveling off their property, a bullet
could travel quite a distance. If you are hearing a lot of gunfire, call
the sheriff's office and have them check it out.

GUNS There is a state ordinance that prohibits anyone from
shooting off anything larger than #4 birdshot if that person owns
less than 50 acres that is zoned agriculture. This seems to make a lot
of sense since a .22 can go a mile. According to the law, a berm is
not enough protection to allow gunfire unless, of course, you have
50 acres or more. You must have a state certified gun range to fire
weapons off on any thing less than 50 acres. I will be contacting the
sheriff's office. Our personal safety should not d@end on whether
our neighbor knows what he's doing or not.

PROPERTY: Concerning the article in Sunday's paper about the
county commissioners directing staff to take the steps necessary to
designate certain properties in Douglas Park as surplus and to trans-
fer those properties to Okeechobee Non-profit Housing, those prop-
erties belong to the taxpayers and should be auctioned. You cannot
give county property away without some sort of auction to the pub-
lic and the people that own it. I realize non-profit does a good job
but we, as taxpayers, have a right to get the money back from where
we purchased it either from a tax deed or whatever way.it
became part of the county's property. I think.it is ridiculous for the
county commissioners to give the taxpayers' property away because
there is no' such thing as surplus property in Florida that I'm aware
of- not % with the current property prices. Please consider putting it
up for auction and they can pay for it just like anyone else would.
Non-profitmeans.they don't make a profit it doesn't mean they
don't have money.

Letters to the Editor


Why I have to
vote Republican
A few days ago, at a public
function, young man offered me
a paper which stated: "Make sure
you vote Democratic." I said, "No
thank you, I'm voting Republi-
can." He then asked why I would
do that and I replied, "If you've
got a few minutes, I'll tell you."
First off, there are two big
issues, planks in your party that
stops me cold abortion and
gun control. Abortion is a moral
issue, I cannot retreat on this. Gun
control is a no-brainer, criminals
ignore these laws. It only takes
away the rights of law abiding citi-
zens to defend themselves, and I
am a retired police officer of 27
years.
Your party says Republicans


are for the rich and gives tax
breaks to the rich. The Bush tax
cuts gave everybody a break, but
the rich got more. Do you know
why? They pay more.
Recent figures from the Trea-
sury Department show the top 1
percent paid 37 percent of all
taxes; the top 5 percent paid 60
percent; and, the bottom 50 per-
cent paid 3.3 percent. Why don't
the Democrats state these figures?
It's easy to figure. There are way
many more poor voters than rich
voters. Your party has been
preaching this for 50 years.
Incidentally, in 2005, the IRS
took in 20 percent more in taxes
than it did in 2000. The result of
tax cuts. I learned this in econom-
ics class in 1947.
Another item is the economy.
The DOW is at a record high, over

12,000. The inflation rate is about
2.5 percent -- mighty low.
Unemployment is at about 4.6
percent the lowest in 40 years.
Home mortgage rates are the
lowest in 50 years. Auto loans -
a lot of them no interest at all. You
know, the media just loves to tell
you only the bad news -- evi-
dently good news is not news:
The war in Iraq every night
on the news more soldiers killed
- the total since March of 2003
almost 2,500. How come they
don't say how many terrorists are
killed? We had 3,000 killed in one
day on 9/11. I1 have a lot of sympa-
thy for our men who are killed in
Iraq. They are heroes.
Have you noticed the high re-
enlistment rate? They know they
are doing a good job .over there.
Again, the media only tells the


bad news. They love to throw
around statistics. How about
these 16,000 murders in the U.S.
last year? Americans killing Amer-
icans! Or, 41,000 killed in auto
accidents.
Another thing, the Democrats
criticizing our present and Com-
mander in Chief during the War
on Terror. "Aid and comfort to the
enemy" used to be called treason
Their only suggestion is "cut and
run."
More Democratic positions I
don't like are more affirmative
action, same sex marriages and
they are against laws protecting
our flag. Actually, I can't under-
stand why any intelligent, loyal,
Christian, American would ever
vote Democratic.

Conunmmunity Theatre's salute to Irving Berlin opens Friday


In his 101 years, Irving Berlin
left his legacy in song through
countless compositions that are
still popular today, and his life-
was filled with as much drama
as his music. The Okeechobee
Community Theatre (OCT) has
crafted a valentine to his musical
genius, that is part show biz nos-
talgia, part history, and, above
all, an enjoyable evening of
singable music.
The colorful song and dance
review, "The Melody Lingers
On," which tells the story of
Berlin's life through more than
forty of his best-loved tunes,
opens Friday night at 8 p.m., and
continues for. three more per-
formances, this Saturday night,
and then on Friday and Saturday
nights, November 10 and 11. All
performances are at the theatre
on S.W. Second Avenue at Sev-
enth Street, behind the Golden
Corral Restaurant. Reserved seat
tickets are available in advance
at the Okeechobee Chamber of
Commerce at $10 each.
Utilizing dialogue from the
book "Irving Berlin: A Daugh-
ter's Memoir," by Berlin's oldest
daughter, Mary Ellin Barrett, the-
atte-goers ate taken back in time
to the early days of vaudeville
where Berlin got his start, and
continuing into the 1960s when
his songs were the toast of
Broadway. Among the gems
which make up the show's
score ate "There's No Business
Like Show Business," "White
Christtas," "Puttin' on the Ritz,"
"Easter Parade," "Blue Skies,"
"Always." "What'll I do?."
Alexander's Ragtime Band" and,
God Bless America."
The cast of sixteen enthusias-
tically performs the tunes in a
variety of ways, from soulful
solos, and spirited duets, to bar-
ber shop quartet-style renditions
and rousing choral numbers.
Along the way, many are pre-
sented with dance routines in
the style of the "golden age"
movie musicals from which they
came.
Performers include several
veterans and a number of talent-
ed newcomers to the OCT stage.
Back from previous productions
are Mike Zierden, Cathy
Womble, Shirley Bush, Judine
Cole, Kevin Lute, Kinberley
Womble, Genna Lute, Tom Mur-
ray, and Daniel Womble.


Submined to Okeecnobee News'OCT
The songs of Irving Berlin helped a ware-weary nation get through World War II. Left to right
are Tom Murray, Mike Zierden, Kevin Lute, and Josh Van Wormer, performing "This is the
Army, Mr. Jones." Berlin's "God Bless America" is also featured in the show, "The Melody
Lingers On," being presented by the Okeechobee Community Theatre on Friday and Satur-
day nights, Nov.;3, 4, 10 and 11.


A young Irving Berlin and friend (left to right), Billy
McCullers and Kevin Lute, earn their living as performing
bus boys in New York's Bowery, in a scene from the Okee-
chobee Community Theatre's production of "The Melody
Lingers on." The show opens a four-night run on Friday night

Guardian ad Litem program to honor volunteers


The Guardian ad Litem pro-
gram is hosting an event to
honor their volunteers. Area Leg-
islative Representatives, Judges,
County Commissioners and

join in this most enthusiastic
endeavor.
All twenty Guardian ad Litem
programs throughout the state
will be hosting similar events to
honor our dependable and most
dedicated volunteers. Having the
opportunity to acknowledge all
the good these volunteers do is


only a small way for the 19th Cir-
cuit Guardian ad Litem Program
to let the volunteers know how
much we appreciate and value
their participation. Without the
volunteers, the children would
have no voice.
The mission of the Guardian
ad Litem program is to advocate
for the best interest of children
who are alleged to be abused,
neglected or abandoned and
who are involved in court pro-
ceedings.
Speakers will be announced

something back to the communi-

teen and our organization. I enjoy
working with young people and
we have various things that teens
can do to help Hospice. We have
fun while we are working". Work-
ing at the Hospice yard sales or
helping with chores at The Ham-
