Agri-Civic Center
costs top $7 million
and are still growing
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
How much public money has
been spent on construction of
the Okeechobee County Agri-
Civic Center and when will it all
end?


The original price tag was
$6,444,00. To date, construction
of the center has cost at least $7.5
million and that total may contin-
ue to rise.
At the Oct. 26 meeting of the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners, the
Okeechobee Cattlemen's Associ-
ation presented a lease agree-
ment to the commissioners. The
proposed agreement would
require the county to pay for
almost $500,000 in improve-


ments, mainly to increase seating
at the facility.: That work would
have to be completed in time for
the 2008 Speckled Perch Rodeo.
In .return, the cattlemen
would pa\ *$50.000 for a five-year,
lease of the facility. This lease
would allow them to conduct
rodeos 26 days put of the year. At,
the end of the first five years, the
cattlemen would pay $200,000
for an additional 30 years.
The seemingly never-ending
line of expenses began on March

fun around OMS. On Monday,
students wore red to show
their commitment to be drug

hurt the eyes to look! Mr. Ted-
ders'" class took the lead again
with 100 per cent participa-
lion.
Thursday's Crazy Sock

INIMaryAnn Morris
In the Okeechobee County Supervisor of Elections office, Diane Tarner, Assistant
Supervisor, prepares to read in the bar code on the envelope of an absentee ballot to
match the voter's signature on the envelope with the scanned-in signature of that voter
on the computer screen

New system purges voter lists


By INI/Maryann Morris
Voting irregularities are noth-
ing new. The dead still vote in
some places, as evidenced by
recent reports in the national
new. But voting in Florida is a
different process, former
"chads" notwithstanding.
"As of January, 2006, there is
a state-wide system in Florida.
When the state (the state issues
the death certificate) advises us
that someone is deceased, we
take that person off the voting
rolls," .explained Okeechobee
County Supervisor of Elections
Gwen Chandler.
"Actually, we usually hear
from the county sooner," she
said. :It takes about 90 days to
hear from the State.
"It's governed by Florida
Statute 98.0753 now," she.
explained. "Before, we used the
local papers. We worked the
obituaries, matching up names,
dates of birth and addresses.


Sometimes a family member
would advise us, which was
good. That way we would
know if someone local might
have died out of state. There
was a form they signed. Under
the new law, they have to bring
a copy of the death certificate,"
she-continued. "That's hard for
me to ask, since I may have
gone to the funeral."
Under the 2006 law, supervi-
sors initially had to wait the lag
time (about 90 days from date
of death) for the state's list of
deceased.
"This could mean that some-
one might receive mail for the
deceased, which was very
upsetting for some people,"
said Ms. Charfdler.
This past June, the state
interpreted the law more broad-
ly and now Supervisors can also
use the local county list.
To vote in Florida, since
1998, you have to show identifi-
cation that has your photo and


your signature on it. If you don't
have one, you must vote a pro-
visional ballot. Then the provi-
sional ballot is reviewed by the
Canvassing Board. But that
photo/signature I.D, can be a
Sams or a BJs card, state I.D. as
well as a driver's license, pass-
port or similar document.
According to Ms. Chandler,
the canvassing board and its
procedures are also governed
b\ lad\\
"The law requires that the
Canvassing Board be three peo-
ple: a county judge, the supervi-
sor of elections and the chair of
the county commission," said
Ms. Chandler. If one of those
people is unable to serve, the
. law also provides procedures
for a replacement.
Absentee ballots are handled
much the same way. On the
outside of the ballot envelope is
an oath the voter must sign and

The next month, on Sept. 11,
commissioners voted to approve
$22,253 for underground electri-
cal cables for the lighting system.
Then in October, the architecture
firm of HHCP was awarded a con-
tract in the amount of $8,250 to
design a public address system.
A total of $46,149 was added to
the bill in the form of change
orders by commissioners at their
Nov. 6, 2004, meeting. The

very expensive day as commis-
sioners approved expenditures
totaling $268,660.
Ardaman & Associates was
given $16,750 for professional
material testing services. Com-
missioners also spent $215,405
for parking lot lights, $18,276 for

Immediately following the
hearing, the Commission will
consider recommendations and
will determine each utility's fuel
charges for 2007.
The fuel charge appears on
customers' bills separate from
other charges. Utilities are
allowed to recover only the pru-

purchased power necessary to
meet customer demand. The utili-

that signature must match the sig-
nature on file in the county super-
visor of elections office.
How is this done?
The outside of the ballot enve-
lope also has a barcode. The
Supervisor's office has a barcode
reader, when the barcode is read,
it brings up, on a computer
screen, the filed, scanned in Sig-
nature of that voter to be matched
with the signature on the outside
of the ballot envelope.
"Now if we cannot identify the

the Canvassing Board for a deter-
mination, if they cannot identify
the signature, then we must notify
the voter by mail and tell the voter
how to "re-register" the signa-
ture."
What about convicted felons?
"Under the old system we only
had reports from the local courts
and we had to write by certified
mail to a person if we had knowl-
edge of a felony conviction and
ask that person to advise us if their
rights had been restored."
The, new system allows all
Supervisors to simply run their
voter list against the list of convict-
ed felons with the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement, all the
clerks of court in the state and'
three other databases, flagging

the convicted felons.
The same goes with a change
of address. By registering to vote,
you are on the Florida State voter
roll. When you move and register
in a different area of the state,
your registration is automatically
removed from your old address
and shown in your new location.
Holly Whiddon, Supervisor of
Elections for Glades County, likes
the new, state-wide system.
"I think the new system is
working well, although this is
only my second election with this
system. Before, there could be
more duplication on the voting
rolls, if you had moved to Glades
County and for some reason did
not tell the clerk in Glades County
you had been registered in anoth-


er county, there would be no way
to know that."
"I still stay in touch with other
counties, for instance, when I see
an address that's not in Glades
County, I check with the neigh-
boring county's supervisor," she
said.
"But," she continued, "if
someorie moves out of state, and
did not tell the clerk in the new
state that they had been registered
in Florida, we would have no way
to know. If they do tell the out of
state clerk, the out of state elec-
tions office will send a notice to
Tallahassee and Tallahassee can
correct the records, otherwise the
person would stay on the tax roll
even if they no longer lived in the
state."

This week's Red Ribbon Week
'i" events have been lots of fun
i;, around OMS. On Monday, stu-
dents wore red to show their
,.' commitment to be drug free, and
Mr. Tedders' homeroom won the

ticipation. On Tuesday, the cam-
pus was filled with aloha as stu-
dents and staff members sported
Hawaiian shirts, led by Mr. Hud-
son's homeroom. Wednesday's
Mix and Match day was a big hit,
"" and many outfits clashed so badly
that it hurt the eyes to look! Mr.
Tedders' class took the lead again
< with 100 per cent participation.
Thursday's Crazy Sock compe-
tition went to Mrs. Collins' home-
room with 88 per cent participa-

It was just a hundred and fifty years ago
that the 'English stopped executing
women for "witchcraft". More than
300,000 women were put to death in
Epand oin aoeriod of 300 years their
only crime was they they were "witch-
es".
A foolish practice? Yes. We all agree! But
at of ttime of the executions people actu-
ally believed in witches and wizards.
There were many who practiced the art
of witchcraft, and believed themselves to
be witches.
What about a hundred years from now?
Will the things we accept today as
human nature byin the dark ages ofyes-
terday? Will prejudices and hate some-
day go the way of witchcraft? This, of
course, depends on us. We make our
world we set the sails on our destiny.
Whether we know it or not, we are doing
just that every day of our lives.

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
THE WORKING CLASS: The economy is so great and the stock
market is way up, but it's too bad our kids can't afford a house. It's
too bad people are getting kicked out of FEMA trailers because they
have nowhere to go and it's too bad New Orleans is still in sham-
bles and no one has fixed it up. So let's hit reality here. There are a
lot of people hurting out there that don't have enough money to put
into the stock market and make ends meet. And even in this town,
there are so many poor people that try to work hard but they just
can't afford a house. Is this economy that great? Maybe for the rich
but not for the poor or working class.

NOT VOTING: I am thoroughly disgusted with our political can-
didates and their behavior with all the mud slinging. I thought these
people were professional and educated and pillars of the commu-
nity. I guess I was wrong. They act more like kindergarten drop
outs. If our children would act like this, they would be punished.
Then, they wonder why the turnout at the polls is so poor. I, along
with my family, will not be voting because of this behavior. As a
child I never had the opportunity to attend kindergarten and I sure
don't need it now. I have a suggestion for these people: they need
to seriously seek employment and get a job.

BIG FAVOR? I see our county commissioners are really at it
again and doing us really wonderful, big favors. They must now
spend $500,000 for renovations on the Agri-Civic Center that has
cost taxpayers tremendous amounts of money, but has been a big
4oss to us, just to satisfy the demands of the Cattlemen's Associa-
tion. Then, they will give taxpayers $250,000 in rent for a 35-year.
lease. Even I, who am not real smart, know that this is total igno-
rance. Please, county commissioners, go back to school.

NO PANTHERS: I would like to clarify that Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center does not currently have any baby panthers or
cougars on display at this time.

APPALLED: While reading the paper on.Wednesday, Nov. 1, I
was appalled at two pictures taken at The Okeechobee County
Building Department on Halloween Day. One picture showed a sev-
ered arm with the caption, "Beware! Wanna look like this guy? This
is what happens when you do not get a permit!" Another picture
displayed a severed leg with the caption, "Beware! Remains of an
unlicensed contractor!" Decorating for a holiday is one thing, but
for a county department to decorate in this manner is in very poor
taste. Is our building department promoting violence? I, personally,
found this very offensive not only that a county department
would decorate in this manner but also that you would print such a
picture as representative of decorating in oui great county and city.

VOTE: Come on Democrats, let's all get out and vote Tuesday
and put some Democrats in office. Surely they can't do any worse
than the Republicans that are in there now.It is a privilege and an
honor to vote. Exercisethat privilege.

CRIST: Did I read in the Okeechobee News this past week or so
that there's been a question of Charlie Crist's sexual preference -
that he might be. gay? With all the publicity Florida has had with
Foley and Arza, we surely don't need a homosexual for governor.
(Editor's Note: That question was has been raised but, 10 date, is
an unfounded rumor that Crist denies. It'hile Crist was married, he
is currently divorced.)

CORRUPTION: After reading the Democrat's ads on corruption
in the Okeechobee News, it reminds me of the old saying of the pot
calling the kettle black. Everything the Republicans do is corrupt.
Everything the Democrats do is angelic. U.S. Representative Harry
Reid (D) making $1.1 million on property he hasn't owned for three
years is OK. Closer to home, Tony Masilotti made millions on land
deals and pleaded guilty. But of course that's OK, too. Even closer
to home our.five Democrat county commissioners are giving the
store away to the Cattlemen's Association. But, that's OK, too. Why
are the Republican's political signs being stolen while the Democ-
rat signs remain in the same spots? But that's OK, too. And they talk
about corruption? Look in the mirror Democrats. You'll see corrup-
tion.

I AGREE: I'm afraid I have to agree with Mr. Murphy as I also can-
not understand how a. Christian could vote for anybody who is in
favor of murdering the unborn or for same-sex marriages.

OPINION









The Okeechobee News, Saturday, November 4, 2006 RELIGION 5


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Reverend Dave Ogden,
Pastor, Grace Christian Church
I've been teaching a Tuesday
morning class at the Great Com-
mission Bible Institute in Sebring.
As I've learned over and over dur-
ing the past thirty years, one of
the really great things about
teaching is that the one who
learns the most is the teacher.
The subject of the class I'm
teaching is "World Religions."
Preparing for each week's class
has served as a continual
reminder of the wonder, the mys-
tery of the human species.
Because, you see, RELIGION is
an expression of mankind's long-
ing to be in relationship with
God. As you consider the hun-
dreds (perhaps thousands) or
systems men and women have
developed in the name of "reli-
gion," you can't fail to recognize


that the deep desire to know-
even to placate a Greater Being,
a Higher Power, is common to all
people of all cultures and for all
times.
Some of. these "religions"
have a great deal to offer. Most
support the idea of a lofty moral
code of conduct the attempt to
be "the best we can be." Some
reflect great devotion, uncom-
mon commitment and a definite
sense of spirituality."
The problem is that every reli-
gious system devised by man is
flawed in this way: there is noth-
ing human beings can do in and
of themselves to satisfy the
righteous and holy standards of a
perfect God. But human nature is
such that we resist accepting the
fact that we are hopeless and
helpless. We want to believe that
if we just DO enough, LOVE


enough, SACRIFICE enough...
we can eliminate the sin nature
and "prove ourselves worthy" of
an intimate relationship with our
Creator.
The CHRISTIAN Faith (not a
religion, but a relationship)
begins with a true and accurate
understanding that "All have
sinned and fall short of the glory
of God." (Romans 3:23) ... that
"The wages of sin is death. . "
(Romans 6:23) and that even our
"good deeds" are seen by God as
"filthy rags." (Isaiah 64:6). All this
is the BAD NEWS.
The GOOD NEWS (which is
what the Gospel means) is that
God Himself did all that's neces-
sary to eliminate the "sin prob-
lem" by sending His Own Son,
Jesus Christ to bE the Perfect Sac-
rifice for our sin and our guilt.
Jesus died, then rose again to live


forever. Because of those two
events, He demonstrated power
and victory over sin, death and
hell. Every person who puts faith
and trust in Jesus Christ as Savior
and Lord, receives His free gifts
of forgiveness, salvation and eter-
nal life.
If you're trusting religion to
"save" you, you're no better off
than the folks written about in
Genesis 11, who started building
a "stairway to heaven" (the
Tower of Babel). They thought
they could reach God through
their own effort. They couldn't...
and neither can you.
"Believe on the lord Jesus
Christ and you will be saved"
(Acts 16:31)
Friend, that's not religion. .
that's faith that launches a
blessed and everlasting relation-
ship. Trust Jesus right now.

Lady Brahman booters

fall to Lady Tigers


The Lady Brahman varsity
and junior varsity soccer teams
traveled to Martin County High
School to take on the Lady Tigers
on Wednesday afternoon. Both
Brahman teams returned to
Okeechobee with losses. The
varsity was defeated 6-0 and the
junior varsity gold was defeated
2-0.
The varsity team took on a
strong Martin County team that
was ranked in the top 10. The
Lady Brahmans knew they had
to overcome some defensive
changes and to be able to adjust
quickly.
The Lady Tigers came out fast
and before Okeechobee knew it,
the Lady Tigers were ahead.
In the second half the Lady
Brahmans were able to adjust
defensively, but were unable to
push it past the strong Lady Tiger
defense. Andrea Duenas ended
up with four shots on goal, but
that was just not enough to win
the game. The Lady Brahmans
were defeated 6-0.
The Lady Brahman junior var-


sity gold team also took on Mar-
tin County. The first half consist-
ed of back and forth play with
both teams looking evenly
matched. The Lady Tigers would
attack and Lady Brahman Lupe
Almazon and her defense would
turn it around and counter-
attack.
Twenty-one minutes in the
first half, Martin County scored.
The Lady Brahmans came out
in the second half, putting seven
shots on goal from Heather Tins-
ley, Janna Mullis, Bernice
Morales, Stephanie Horvath and
Eunice Robledo.
Martin County would slip one
more in before time was called.
The final score was 2-0.
The Lady Brahman varsity
and junior varsity gold teams will
make the trip to John Carroll
High School on Saturday, Nov. 4
to challenge the Golden Rams
on their home field. The junior
varsity match will begin at 9 a.m.
The varsity will see action at 11
a.m.

through a tough Hidden Oaks
game on Wednesday, once

final match, they have made the

Diabetes can be found in your pet


COLLEGE STATION
November is National Diabeth
Month and the disease is often
called the "silent killer" ar
that's true for pets as the disease,
can sometimes strike man's be
friend and take some of the rov
out of Rover.
But the disease doesn't ne
essarily mean a death sentence
and dogs that do contract it ca
often live normal lives, says 1
Alice Blue-McLendon, a veter
narian at Texas A&M Univers
ty's College of Veterinary Mec
cine & Biomedical Sciences.
Just like the human form o
the disease, diabetes in anima
is caused by the body's inabili
to control blood sugar. And ju
like humans, the treatment
often identical.
"The best way to fight dia
betes is with a shot of insulin
says Blue-McLendon. "Sorr
oral drugs can be used, but ni
all are effective. An insulin sh,
ft*^


remains the quickest and safest
treatment for diabetes."
Although almost any animal
can get diabetes, the disease
seems to strike dogs most often,
followed by cats. Cattle can also
get it, but diabetes in horses is
rare, she explains.
Older animals usually those
five years or more are more
likely to get diabetes, Blue-
McLendon confirms.
"Smaller animals seem to get
diabetes more often than large
animals, and certain dog breeds
are more likely to develop it,"
she adds. These include poo-
dles, dachshunds and terriers.
"We know genetics can play
a role in the chances of an ani-
mal getting diabetes," Blue-
McLendon adds.
"Animals from the same litter
that had a diabetic parent can
often get the disease. We're still
learning much about the dis-
ease, but just as in humans,


heredity can be a factor in devel-
oping diabetes."
Cats can get diabetes, but the
incidence in felines is not as
high as dogs, Blue-McLendon
says.
As with people, one con-
tributing factor in a animal con-
tracting diabetes is obesity.
The chances of an over-
weight dog or cat getting dia-
betes are greater than if the ani-
mal was of normal weight,
Blue-McLendon says.
What symptoms of diabetes
should a pet owner look for?
"The animal will probably
show signs of excessive thirst,"
she explains. "This is usually
accompanied by frequent urina-
tion."
"Also, the animal may appear
to be losing weight, even though
its appetite may be normal. If a
pet owner sees any of these
signs, he or she should consult a
veterinarian."
If insulin shots are required,


veterinarians will instruct the
pet owner how to give the injec-
tions. In most cases, two injec-
tions each day are required,
Blue-McLendon says.
Living with a diabetic animal
can require some extra work on
the part of the owner.
"Especially with dogs, the
disease will not go away the
dog will have it for the rest of its
life," Blue-McLendon notes.
"So it requires a major com-
mitment from the owner. Dia-
betic animals need some extra
attention, and the owner has to
be aware of this fact. But with
the right treatment, the animal
can live a happy and normal
life."

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)
