Time Warner
profit swells
NEW YORK (AP) Time
Warner Inc. posted sharply
higher thirdcquarter earnings
on Wednesday, but less some
special items its profit fell short
ot.analsts' expectations.
The company's AOL unit,
which is revamping its busi-
ness model, posted higher
profits as it slashed marketing
expenses for its dial-up access
service. But AOL's revenues fell
as subscribers dropped away
faster than gains in Internet
advertising.
.New York-based Time
Warner, which owns Time Inc.,
Warner Bros. and HBO, had
earnings of $2.3 billion, or 57
cents a share, versus $853 mil-
lion, or 18 cents a share, in the
gear quarter last year.
Revenues rose 7 percent to
$10.9 billion from $10.2 billion.
Analysts polled by Thomson
Financial had been expecting
revenuesof$11 1 billion. ,.
The earnings included 2;3
Scents per share for discontin-
ued operations related to cable
systems that Time garner r has
since transferred to Comcast
Corp. as part of a three-way
deal with Comcast to acquire
the systems of Adelphia Com-
munications Corp. .
The figures also included 14
cents per share in gains from the
sale of Warner Bros.' Australian
theme park business, other :,
asset sales and one-time effects.
Without the discontinued
operations or one-time gains,
the earnings were equivalent to
19 cents per share, up from 17
cents per share on a compara-
ble basis in the year-ago penod.

County ATV laws stiffened


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The riding of All Terrain Vehi-
cles (ATVs) by underage children
has been a cause for concern.
However, a recently passed Okee-
chobee County ordinance and
federal regulations under consid-
eration may make the situation
safer.


Riders of ATVs beware it is
now illegal to operate an ATV on
any county road in Okeechobee
County.
According to recently passed
state legislation, under certain
conditions ATVs could be operat-
ed on unpaved county roads.
However, this legislation was writ-
ten to allow individual counties to

opt out of the law, which is exactly
what the Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners
did at their Oct. 26 meeting. -
It is now illegal to operate an
ATV on any county road paved
or unpaved.
Major Noel Stephens of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) said ATVs on coun-


ty roads have been a sporadic
problem in the past.
He said that parents bought
their children ATVs and as the
county has built up the areas
where they can legally drive them
has become more and more limit-
ed. This has forced them to drive
on the shoulder of the road from
one riding area to another, which


is an illegal practice.
He said there have been one or
two occasional ATV accidents.
"We don't want any accidents
because they involve children and
serious injuries," he said.
The OCSO major said the new
county ordinance would keep the

Earlier in the day, Arza apolo-

resignation would show he
accepted the consequences of the

to distract from the work of the
Republican-dominated Legisla-

Arza's resignation came just
an hour before a special House
panel was set to begins hearings
on the case in Tallahassee. The
hearings were canceled.
Rundle said his resignation
would have no bearing on the
criminal case.
Arza previously acknowledged
leaving the messages last month
but said he was drunk.
He said he had learned that

Arza said,Wednesday his calls

each candidate has unique quali-

He said he received common

the black community, and that
that was one of his biggest
regrets. -
Crew on-Wednesday called the
situation "a tragedy all the way
around," but said Arza was right
to leave the Legislature.
"I believe now we can get
back to essentially mending and
healing the community around
these issues, and I can get back to
work," Crew told reporters.
Bush also said resigning was
the right thing. But he said he

a big mistake," Bush said.
Incoming House Speaker
Marco Rubio, R-Miami, also
praised Arza's record before the


he said, adding that he has not
regretted moving here.
"I want to be part of a team

candidate Jim Vensel.

a judge for 25 years. Mr. Vensel
has a bachelor of science degree

State Sen. Frederica Wilson, D-

"I think it took so long because

with Teflon and nothing is going

WSVN-TV.
The Republican Party will
choose a replacement for Arza for
the general election less than a
week away, but his name will still

"I think it's a healthy thing for
everybody," he said.
According to the U. S. Con-
sumer Products Safety Commis-
sion (CPSC) web site, from Jan. 1,
1982, until Dec. 3, 2003, a total of
6,494 people died in ATV acci-
dents. Of that number, 31 percent
- or 2,019 were under the age
of 16, and 13 percent- or 845 -
were under the'age of 12. "
In 2004, 130 childreniunder the

In a telephone interview CPSC
spokesperson Scott Wolfson said
that his organization is in the
process of formulating five rules to
alleviate youth fatalities.
Because the CPSC is a federal
agency, they can do their own rule
making.
The first rule calls for mandato-
ry standards for ATVs. Mr. Wolfson
said that foreign made ATVS are
made to different standards than
American models.
The second rule has to do with
youth model ATVs. Currently there
are two youth models one for
ages 6 to 11 and another for ages
12 through 16. The CPSC proposes

teen group aged 12 through 15.
These groups would be based
on the speed of the vehicle instead
of engine size. The junior group
would go no faster than 1,0 miles
per hour. The pre-teen group would
start at 10 miles per hour. Then as a
child matures, the parent could
increase the speed to 15 miles per
hour. The teen group would start at
15 miles per hour. When the child
had matured and grown sufficiently,
the parent could increase the speed
to 30 miles per hour.
The third rule would require

"We have seen a decline in


to learn to ride by trial and error."
The fourth rule would require
parents to be aware of the danger
of children riding adult ATVs.
The fifth rule would outlaw
three-wheel ATVS. Mr. Wolfson
said that three-wheelers are inher-
ently more dangerous than four-
wheelers and there was no way
they could be made safer.
Mr. Wolfson said that the rules
would be finalized some time in
2007. At this time, they are accept-
ing public comment. Anyone wish-
ing to comment should contact

North Elementary is learning about numbers


Kindergarten
Miss Hudson's and Mrs. Rauler-
son's class are working hard on
the numbers 0-10. We are count-
ing everything including the food
on our lunch tray. We are practic-
ing writing the numbers on white
boards and on paper. We learned
a rhyme with each number to
help us remember how to write it.
Miss Saine's class started their
'"Take Curious George Home"
project this week. Each student
will get to take George home, read


a story about him, and write a
story about
George's experi-
ences. We plan
on having a
banana split aP
party after
everyone has
taken him home.
Mrs. Pope's class is writing with
"October" words. We are dis-
cussing how to be drug-free. We
are also talking about numbers to
10 and shapes. In reading class we
are making words with "I" in the


middle.
Mrs. K. Hackett's class is cele-
brating October with a pumpkin
unit. They have been reading books
about pumpkins and making paper
plate pumpkins. They will be using
donated pumpkins to sort pump-
kins, pattern pumpkins, and count
pumpkin seeds into groups of 10
for math. They will also use the
pumpkins to hypothesize and pre-
dict how fire needs oxygen to stay
lit. We are excited about pumpkins!
Mrs. Quann and Mrs. Gable's
classes are making cup cakes to cel-


ebrate reading "Warthogs in the
Kitchen." We will practice counting
out four chocolate chips, and
spooning cupcake batter in our muf-
fin tins. No pickles in our cupcake!
Mrs. Smith's & Mrs. Steiert's
classes have been working on fall
projects. We have learned about
why leaves change colors, and
what grows on trees. We have
made leaf graphs and leaf rub-
bings. We have also made class
books titled "How many apples up
on top?" since we are learning
numbers 1-10. We are writing a


Halloween book also "I see a..."
We are very proud of our classes
and the progress they have made
this year. Keep up the good work.
First grade
Mrs. Posey's reading students
are learning about frogs from their
story "Where do Frogs Come
From?" They saw pictures of all
kinds of frogs and are writing frog
stories. In math we are learning
how adding and subtracting are
related.

We overheard a remark the other day
when a person was saying: "He took a
mighty hard fall.., but he bounced right
back onto his feet.." You know that is
one of the greatest compliments that
can be said of a man "...He bounced
right back onto his feet.".There are few
among us who do not at one time or
another stumble and fall as we weave
our way through the briar patch of life.
Often we are innocent victims of fate...
sometimes our misfortunes are of a
nature which lays the blame squarely
on our own shoulders.
Whatever the nature of our fall, there is
a great amount of respect and glory in
the ability to rise again.
Many years ago, from the pen of Oliver
Goldsmith, came these words:
"Our greatest glory consists not in
never failing... but in rising every time
we fall..."
As we recall the remark being made of
the one bouncing back onto his feet...
there was no mention of courage... or
strength... or glory, but it was there it is
always there.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their
publishers or corporate owners.


But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think,
or to try to control public opinion. Our editors insist on pur-
poseful neutrality. We try to report the news fairly and facili-
tate a fair but vigorous discussion of public issues.


We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're
proud to understand the difference.

OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Thursday, November 2,2006


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.
REPUBLICANS: I'd like to respond to the article pertaining to the
Catholic Church comment. This person says that the priests have been
hiding, and the Pope has been hiding the priests. Kind of sounds like
the Republican Party hiding Foley. So, if you all are Republican, I don't
know why you want to be on that team. But if you want to be on that
team, go for it.

BULLFIGHTS: I keep hearing about the Agri-Center, and I have a
suggestion: we have quite a few Mexican people in this town so why
don't they have bull fights out there? I think that would be kind of neat.
It would be different. Ole!

OCEANFRONT PROPERTY: After reading this morning's Okee-
chobee News about the great deal that the Cattlemen's Association is
offering the citizens of Okeechobee County for leasing the Agri-Civic
Center, I would just like to say to our commissioners: I've got a whole
bunch of oceanfront property in Arizona. I wish they would make me
a deal on that like they did for the Cattlemen's Association.

DEAL: Did Commissioner Masilotti move from Palm Beach County
to Okeechobee County? Or, was this deal with the Agri-Civic
Center/Cattlemen's Association thought up by our county commis-
sioners who seem to have revenge in their minds for us voting them
out of office?

PAVING: As I drive through the beautiful city of Okeechobee, I mar-
vel at all the beautiful new streets that have been repaved or over
paved or resurfaced or whatever they call it. I wonder why all that is so
necessary when there are still dirt roads like the one behind Captain
D's Restaurant?

STIRRED UP: I am a Democrat and I was reading in the Letters to.
the Editor section about why I have to vote Republican. I'm open
minded so I started reading it. I read about all the things you hear on
the news and why the Democrats are so terrible. Then I get down to
the last paragraph and the last sentence and I can't understand why
any intelligent, Christian, American would ever vote Democratic. That
part kind of stirred me up and I got to thinking that anybody that's a
true Christian wouldn't have said that last sentence.

Letters to the Editor


Leave God out
of government
Sometimes I wonder why God
sent me to Okeechobee. Then I
read a letter in the paper with
someone showing off their scrip-
tural aptitude, spouting 2000-
year-old quotes from the Bible
and telling us how to vote.
I am here in the Bible Belt to
defend secular government. It is
my calling to keep God out of gov-
ernment as our forefathers
wished the separation of
church and state. Why?
If politics were water and reli-
gion oil, the oil will rise to the top.
The problem is anything living in
the water below will die. Think of
it like the Taliban on top of the
water and how all the freedom
below it died. You can't homoge-
nize politics and religion. Never!
One has only to cast an eye to
the Middle East to see what reli-


gious governments are like. Reli-
gious states eventually give way to
fanaticism, and fanatics become
-the leaders. The founding fathers
of this country foresaw that and
gave us a spectacular form of gov-
ernment that is the envy of the
world.
Christian governments haven't
faired well throughout history
either.
The Spanish sent the Jesuits
and the conquistadores to the
Americas with Bibles in hand.
They told the natives to love Jesus
or we will kill you. Some 500
years later the Muslims send ter-
rorists saying, "Praise Allah or we
will kill you." You say "Allah be
praised," and they kill you any-
way.
Political systems depend on
uniform rationale to exist. Some-
thing simple like an entire nation
believing in stopping at red lights.
One thing you will never find in

religion is rationality a little tol-
erance perhaps, but not rationali-.
ty.
If religions were rational we
could have one form of Christiani-
ty where we all agreed to believe
the same thing. And we certainly
can't accuse the Muslims of being
rational.
My grandmother hated
Catholics so much I checked to
see where she was when
Kennedy was killed. To this day I
cannot understand how such a
sweet little old lady could harbor
such ill feelings toward another
Christian, just as I could never
understand the Catholics and
Protestants in Northern Ireland.
Can you see why Ben Franklin
did not want God in government?
Religious zealots rarely agree on
anything.
I would vote for an atheist if I
thought the person was the best
candidate. I am not saying we do


not need our faith to help us
through trying times but to say
that God is on our side in this
ridiculous war is nothing short of
preposterous.
* We are a nation at war over
nonexistent weapons of mass
destruction. We were led there,
not by God, but by an egomaniac
who wanted to settle the score for
his daddy. It appears that God is
no more on our side than Allah is
on theirs.
Leave school prayers alone;
Leave the Pledge of Allegiance
alone. Leave the Ten Command-
ments in the courthouse. Ask for
Divine Guidance before you go -
but, for Heaven's sake when you
get to the polls leave God out of
government.
Be careful what you wish for
-it may come true.
If you had a Baptist govern-
ment who would you dance with?

Briefs

Ad Litem program
needs volunteers
This year, hundreds of kids on
the Treasure Coast will be
abused, neglected or abandoned.
If you have as little as two hours
per week, then you can help.
Guardian Ad Litem volunteers are
needed to speak up for these chil-
dren. Training for new volunteers
will be held in your area soon.
Volunteers are needed in St.
Lucie, Indian River, Martin and
Okeechobee counties. Call the
Guardian Ad Litem program at
(772) 785-5804 for information
and an application. Just two
hours of your time each week will
make a difference in the lives of
these children.
Foster parents
desperately needed
Okeechobee is in desperate
need of people willing to provide
foster children- a normal family
life with nutritious meals, good
daily care and a stimulating envi-
ronment. Foster parents may be
married, divorced or single. Their
most important characteristic is
that they are caring individuals
who understand the problems
and needs of foster children.
Please contact Karissa Richards at
1-(800) 403-9311.
Coast Guard Auxiliary
is active in community
Since its creation by Congress
in 1939, the U.S. Coast Guard Aux-
iliary has served as the civilian,
non-military component of the
Coast Guard. Today, the 33,000
volunteer men and women of the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary are
active on the waterways and
classrooms in over 2,000 cities
and towns across the nation.
Each year, Auxiliarists (folks just
like you) save almost 500 lives,
assist some 15,000 boaters in dis-
tress, conduct more the 150,000
courtesy safety examinations of
recreation vessels and teach over
500,000 students in boating and
water safety courses. The results
of these efforts save taxpayers
hundreds of millions of dollars
every year. For information, call
(863) 467-3085.
EYDC needs
volunteers
Volunteers do make a differ-
ence. This statement is proven
daily by hundreds of private citi-
zens who, as volunteers, enter
juvenile justice programs
throughout the state. The Eckerd
Youth Development Center
(EYDC) needs you to share your
skills or special talents in making
a difference in the lives of trou-
bled youth. Volunteers are need-
ed as tutors, translators, arts and
crafts instructors, mentors, job
preparation and search instruc-
tors, recreation aides and assis-
tance in developing a youth choir.
Wouldn't you like to make a dif-
ference? If so, please contact


EYDC, 7200 U.S. Hwy. 441 N.,
Okeechobee, Fl. 34972. (863)
763-2174, ext. 234.

Church Food Pantry is open
