We want to thank our par-
ents for our lives, our friends
for their friendship, and our
teachers for the knowledge
that they help us to attain.
Mrs. Campbell's class is

several students have turned
in entries for the poster con-
test.
Mrs. Kirby's class is look-

what they are thankful for.
Ms Hunt's class is busy...
learning all about holidays

Now we know why Hal-

love reading scary stories,
too.
Mrs. .Brady's class had a
great Halloween. We enjoyed
our Read-In where we got to

Club for gays at OHS denied


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
There will be no club repre-
senting homosexual students at
Okeechobee High School
(OHS), said school district offi-
cials Thursday.
That was the statement of
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patri-
cia Cooper after consulting with
school administrators about the
request from a senior at the school.
"We are an abstinence-only
district and we do not condone or
promote any type sexual activity,"
Dr. Cooper asserted.


Dr. Cooper said the issue first
surfaced several weeks ago when
fights were going on at the high.
school campus. She said five stu-
dents approached OHS principal
Toni Wiersma and asked to form a
Gay-Straight Alliance. At that time,
because of the unrest on campus,
the request was denied.
But, those students persisted.
According to its website, the
Gay-Straight Alliance Network is
a youth-led organization that
connects school-based Gay-
Straight Alliances to each other
and community resources. The


organization claims to have over
400 clubs in California represent-
ing more than one-third of the
state's high schools.
Dr. Cooper said the school sys-
tem was willing to go to court to
defend their action. She said
school board attorney Tom Conley
has been contacted by the Ameri-
can Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
As of newspaper deadline, Mr.
Conley had not returned a tele-
phone call.,
"I feel like this is the right
stand," Dr. Cooper stated. "We feel
this will be a major detriment to


Mrs. Jim Davis: 'momentum going our way.


our school environment."
She said that she had not heard
from any parents one way or
another about the issue.
Assistant Superintendent of
Schools Ken Kenworthy said he
expected support from parents.
"We care about the students
trying to form this organization, as
well as the other students," Dr.
Cooper said.
She said those students had
been offered counseling and pro-
tection from harassment.
"We don't feel its appropriate
in a school setting," Mr. Kenwor-


thy said. "The sexual orientation of
a minor belongs in the home."
Every school organization
must have a faculty member as a
sponsor. Dr. Cooper said a sponsor
had been suggested for the club.
She would not reveal that name
and she said there was no indica-
tion as to whether or not that indi-
vidual would be wiling to take on
that responsibility.
In some school districts where
this issue has come up, all school-
sponsored clubs were disbanded.
There are 1,320 enrolled at
OHS in grades 10 through 12.

UKeecnonee News, 'ete uawaa
Peggy Davis, wife of Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Jim Davis, came to Okee-
chobee on Thursday, Nov. 2, to meet her husband's supporters.


-Candidate's wife in-Okeechobee


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Peggy Davis, wife of Demo-
cratic gubernatorial candidate
Jim Davis, came to Okee-
chobee on Thursday, Nov. 2, to
meet with her husband's sup-
porters. The noon meeting,
held at a local restaurant, was
sponsored by the Okeechobee
Democratic Party..
Mrs. Davis urged the gath-
ered Democrats to get out the
vote. She said her husband is
running to be a governor for all
Floridians. Mrs. Davis said her
husband's three big issues were
insurance, high taxes and FCAT.
She was asked about cam-
paign ads questioning her hus-
band's attendance in Congress.


She said that in 10 years, he has
had a 98 or 99 percent atten-
dance record on votes. Howev-
er, she said, in the last 18
months since he has been cam-
paigning for governor he
missed some, mostly procedur-
al, votes. Overall, for the last .10
years she said his voting atten-
dance record was 93 percent.
Mrs. Davis said her husband
feels undue importance is placed
on the FCAT. She said that with
FCAT the teachers were "teach-
ing to the test" and that her hus-
band favored a starting salary of
$38,000 for teachers. "
He proposes to take the
money that is now going to A
schools and applying it to
teachers' salaries.
She noted that many teach-


ers are leaving the state, after
five years.
Mrs. Davis said her husband
has stood up for issues that
mattered and that he was
against oil drilling in the Gulf
of Mexico. He also favors pro-
grams to combat domestic
violence.
Even though surveys show
the governor's race to be close,
Mrs. Davis said that 8 to 10 per-
cent of the voters are still unde-
cided. She added "momentum
is going our way."
"Send a message of change
to Tallahassee," Mr. Davis stat-
ed.
She left the Okeechobee
meeting to go on to meetings in
Moore Haven, LaBelle and
Naples.

Residents ask to implement water consumption


West Palm Beach The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has asked resi-
dents and agricultural water users
to voluntarily reduce water con-
sumption as a preemptive meas-
ure to avoid or forestall potential
water shortage orders and
mandatory water restrictions this
upcoming dry season.
South Florida residents are
asked to voluntarily limit irrigation
times and reduce such wasteful
water habits as leaving the water
running while brushing one's
teeth, taking long showers, allow-
ing leaky fixtures to remain in dis-
repair, or over-watering their
lawns. Additionally, permitted
users within the Lake Okee-
chobee region are encouraged to-
reduce withdrawals from the


lake, as water levels here remain
troublingly low.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District clearly does not
want to issue any water shortage
orders or impose water use
restrictions, but we have learned
lessons from the many similar sit-
uations we have faced over the
years," said Carol Ann Wehle,
executive director at the SFWMD.
"At this point, we feel compelled
to inform the public that many
counties are currently experienc-
ing low water supply levels and
could be impacted by future
water restrictions. We believe
water conservation is an impor-
tant endeavor year-round, and
would be particularly prudent at
this critical time."
The South Florida Water Man-


agement District has recorded
near record-low rainfall through
the first 10 months of 2006, with
current water levels approaching
supply-side management levels -
the traditional water shortage trig-
gers across the District's 16
counties. District scientists and
meteorologists anticipate' that
even a wetter than normal dry
season may not prevent the Dis-
trict from implementing manda-
tory water restrictions in, many
parts of South Florida.
At 1.05 inches of District-wide
rainfall for the entire month, Octo-
ber 2006 was the third driest on
record since 1932. The first 10
months of 2006 have be6n the
second driest on record, leaving
many areas of the District in 1-in-
25-year dry spells.


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District continues to
monitor water levels throughout
the District daily and is proactively
planning in the event any such
shortages are declared.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional,
governmental agency that over-
sees the water resources in the
southern half of the state 16
counties from Orlando to the
Keys. It is the oldest and largest of
the state's five water manage-
ment districts. The agency mis-
sion is to manage and protect
water resources of the region by
balancing and improving water
quality, flood control, natural sys-
tems and water supply. A key ini-
tiative is cleanup and restoration
of the Everglades.

iff's Office is disclosing this infor-

TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced the arrest of
a New Jersey man for allegedly
trying to smuggle $435,000 in
marijuana out of Florida.
The arrest was made by Bron-
son's Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement, when officers at
the 1-75 Interdiction Station in
Hamilton County shortly before
noon today inspected a truck-
Irailer that the suspect was driO-
ing. While paperwork in the


truck indicated that the vehicle
was hauling furniture, a visual
inspection of the cargo deter-
mined that the truck was carry-
ing several boxes, where an esti-
mated 87 pounds of high-grade
marijuana was concealed.
The suspect Juan R. Ventu-
ra, 36, of Paterson, New Jersey -
was booked into the Hamilton
County Jail on charges of traffick-
ing in marijuana, possession of a
controlled substance and driver
license related charges
Bronson credited the Florida


Department of Law Enforce-
merit, the U.S. Drug Enforcement
Administration and the Hamilton
County Sheriff's Department for
its assistance in the case.
The arrest and seizure caps a
busy three-and-a-half year stretch
at the department's 23 interdic-
tion stations, where officers have
recovered an estimated $23 mil-
lion in drugs, stolen goods-and
contraband at the locations.'Indi-
vidual seizures have included a $7
million cocaine shipment,
$600,000 in stolen medicines, 60


large-screen televisions and a
truckload of stolen computer
chassis designed historically to
keep plant and animal pests and
diseases out of Florida by inspect-
ing the more than 10 million com-
mercial vehicles that enter or
leave the state each year, the sta-
tions are playing an increasingly
important role in homeland secu-
rity efforts, as officers have
detained several truckloads of ille-
gal aliens in addition to the
seizure of drugs arid stolen goods.

Everglades Elementary prepares for Thanksgiving


Second grade
Mr. Wright's class is preparing
for Thanksgiving. We want to
thank our parents for our lives, our
friends for their friendship, and our
teachers for the knowledge that
they help us to attain.
Mrs. Camp-
bell's class is
enjoying the
book "How to

Worms." We are
going well answering the ques-
tions. Good listeners! Several stu-
dents have turned in entries for the
poster contest.
Mrs. Kirby's class is looking for-
ward to the month of November.
They will be learning all about the
Pilgrims and the first Thanksgiv-


ings. Through their writings and art
they will be sharing what they are
thankful for.
Ms. Hunt's class is busy learning
all about holidays and what they
symbolize. Now we know why
Halloween is October 31, what
black cats mean, and what haunt-
ed means. We really love reading
scary stories, too.
Mrs. .Brady's class had a great
Halloween. We enjoyed our Read-
In where we got to bring in pillows,
blankets, and flashlights and read
all morning. Thanks to our guest
readers. We continued our fun by
sharing treats and making a class
graph, and then we got into cos-
tume and participated in the
parade. Wow! What fun. Thank
you parents for helping to make


our day great.
Ms. Stokes class celebrated Hal-

After a spirited week of
competition at Okeechobee
High School (OHS), the stu-
dents of the senior class came
out on top in the Homecom-
ing week competitions. Their
prize for beating the other
classes at OHS was the covet-
ed title of Most Spirited class
and the bragging rights that
goes with it.
"The award is simply the
title of winning," said OHS offi-
cial Michel Coleman.
"The floats were judged by
five different judges on a variety
of categories," said Mrs. Cole-
man. "The junior class won the
judging."
SWhile the eleventh graders'
float won in the float competi-
tion, it was not enough to pull
them in the lead of the class
that won most of the dress up
days and had the best turnout
for the Pep Rally the night
before the Homecoming game.
The junior class also won
the- canned food drive organ-
ized by the OHS chapter of the
National Honor society.
"I am very happy with the
senior class," said Ms. Gina
Davis, senior class sponsor. "I
feel that they all put in a lot of
effort and the week went won-
derfully."
The final score was made up
of daily sub-scores that depend-
ed on the percent of students in
each class that dressed up for
the day's theme and how mem-

The story is told of a man walking
down the street with a friend, they
stopped to buy a newspaper from a
very rude newsie. The purchaser of
the paper was exceptionally nice and
courteous to the newsie, but he didn't
even acknowledge their presence.
"He is like that all the time,"
shrugged the man.
"Then why do you continue to be
polite to him?" asked his friend.
"Why not?" he inquired.
"Why should I let him decide how
I'm going to act."
How many of us react to people when
we should act? We often let others
dictate how we will be "Get an
impolite reception offer an impolite
reaction." W
After all is said the greatest people
are those who do not let others decid-
ed how they are going to act.
A little kindness sometimes breaks
down the barriers of indifference.
Thought To Remember: "You alone
can decided what kind of person you
will be today."

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.conn/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

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.
AGRI-CIVIC CENTER: Looks like the good ole boys are alive and well.
The county commissioners that are leaving office still seem to have their
hands in the till. I can't believe that after all this time the Cattlemen's Asso-
ciation wants to technically take over the Agri-Civic Center and at what
costs to the taxpayers of this county? And what will become of the old
rodeo grounds? Selling it for a big profit I bet! I sure don't want my tax dol-
lars going into renovating the center for the Cattlemen's Association. Let
them pay all the cost for everything.'Makes me want to vote for the under-
dog county commissioner. What is Okeechobee coming to?

POLITICIANS: If you remember, these are the same commissioners
who voted for $16,000 of taxpayers' money for a marble pedestal to be
placed in the new courthouse with a plaque on it with their names on it. It
wasn't good enough to place it on the wall. Robin Williams said "Politi-
cians are like diapers, they need to be changed on a regular basis and for
the same reason."

BARKING DOGS: I agree with your Speak Out about barking dogs. We
have the same problem in Brindaban Forest. The owners work all day
and can't hear the noise. When they get home it's even worse. The dogs
want attention. Why do people want dogs that they have to leave tied to a
clothesline all the time? These dogs are well cared for but they bark at
every noise and everything that moves. It would be nice to sit out and
read the paper or talk on the phone to family. I will be calling the police
number you published in your Speak Out.

SUPPORT: I offer congratulations to the Okeechobee High School
Band on their great success, but it is not the community's responsibility to
be supportive of every single high school student. The parents are there
and that sometimes is all the child needs. Rodeo, which happens to be
my favorite sport, is not supported by the community either. I have been
to events where maybe not even eight parents are there to support their
child emotionally, physically or financially. So it goes all the way
around and rodeo to me is just as important as what other people feel
football is.

CRIST: I am a Republican. In my heart I believe in most of what
Republicans say and do but this Charlie Crist, I've got to tell you people is
taking money from the insurance companies. My insurance rates have
double d and he has admitted taking money from the insurance compa-
nies. I watched the debate. Also, he says he is battling the utilities compa-
nies so why is my FPL bill doubled? I don't see what he has done for us in
Florida. Also, this FCAT is ridiculous. How many kids are dropping out of
school because they can't graduate over this? I'd like for Crist and Gover-
nor Bush to take the FCAT and pass it. When they do that, then they can
put it down on our kids and our schools. I don't knowwhy he's following
suit on Governor Bush. He needs to come up with some fresh ideas -
then maybe I'd vote for him.

NOT IMPRESSED: What happened to the great deal, a wise invest-
ment, a great business venture our commissioners promoted the Agri-
Center at a mere cost of $6.8 million four years ago. By my calculations,
and I'm just a stupid taxpayer, the great business venture is now $13 mil-
lion plus the lost income, plus four years of expenses. Tony Masilotti
would sure be impressed. I'm not.
Editor's Note: In checking with the county, the Agri-Civic Center has
cost the county about $8 million in actual costs.

ILLNESSES: I'm not a doctor or anything but I've learned that a lot of ill-
nesses are connected with acidity in the body. High acid levels could
cause heart trouble and gout. This is just what I've found out. If you take
something that is alkaline tolowern the acidity in your body ahid switch
foods it can prevent a lot'of illnesses. It's something I found out recently
from personal experience.

HALLOWEEN: I think it's nice that they have things in town for the kids
for Halloween but I think it's terrible that people bring them around to
people's houses to worry them. I don't think its right. There is so much
meanness anymore you don't want to open your doors and they don't
pay any attention to outside lights they're still knocking on your door.

APPALLED: I am appalled, disgraced and cannot believe that the
Catholics in this town do not stand up for their religion. We don't go to
church for any one man. We don't go to church for the Pope. We go to
church to worship Jesus Christ. We are Christian and we love our Lord
and I am disturbed by the fact that no other Catholic has stood up and
voiced their opinion. If you go to church like blind sheep, you'll be slaugh-
tered like blind sheep. You must stand up for your religion and that is to
worship Jesus. No man in that church is of any consequence except for
our Lord Jesus, who we worship. I would just like to say to the person
who said to leave your team in the paper. How dare he say that? That is
our religion. Why doesn't he leave his team? Catholics have done a lot of
good in this world. Afew bad apples don't ruin the whole bunch.

Letters to the Editor


My faith
is restored
My grandson, Danny Cottone,
lost his wallet the night of the
Okeechobee High School bon-
fire with his driver's license, CPR
card, school I.D. and $70 he had
earned mowing lawns.
Danny, his friend Elliott and I
searched the stands, grounds
and even trash barrels to no
avail. I told Danny "you can kiss
that wallet goodbye."
Disappointed we went home
and made plans to get another
driver's license and school I.D.
The following morning at 7:20


a.m., I received a call from
Danny from school saying a
classmate, Gary Rogers, had
found his wallet and returned it
intact. I couldn't believe it!
I am writing this letter to com-
mend Gary on his morals, val-
ues, integrity and honesty. There
are a lot of people who would
just as soon not have done the
right thing. So, thank you Gary.
Your family should be very,
proud of you because I sure am.
I would also like to thank the
grounds man that left the gates
open until we searched the
stands.
