Wildlife Center gets financial boost


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
John Pierson, owner of Toy-
ota of Stuart, presented
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation
Center with a $5,000 donation
to help rebuild some of the ani-
mal habitats destroyed during
the past two hurricane seasons.
The presentation took place at
the center in Okeechobee on
Saturday during its open house
fundraiser.
"As a native Floridian I'm
excited to help our endangered
animals," stated Mr. Pierson,
who was recently made aware
that the non-profit wildlife cen-
ter has been struggling finan-
cially since it was damaged dur-
ing the 2004 and 2005
hurricane seasons.
"It was by no means an easy
situation," said Ms. Arnold. "But
I can't turn away an injured ani-
mal. We just made do as best
we could with what we had."
Mr. Pierson's donation will
cover the cost of a recently
rebuilt animal compound. The
compound displays the sign

'The Chicago of the South'


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE Believe it
or not, at one time Okeechobee
was predicted to become "the
Chicago of the South." The rich
farmland found around Lake
Okeechobee and the location:
easy access to both the east and
west coasts of the state, made
this idea a natural one. Remains
of old sidewalks out along the
main road heading west of
town give evidence to grand
plans.
The railroad came from the
east along State Road 70 just
about 200 feet to the south. It
came down from Kenansville
south to Okeechobee. It crossed
Taylor Creek on a bridge just
about where the roadway
bridge is now. Then the railroad
came down through the middle
of town, right between S.W.
Seventh and S.W. Tenth
Avenues. Of course, they had
names back then, not numbers.
The numbers are a fairly recent

gift from the government "to
make it easier for emergency
vehicles to get where they need
to go faster." True enough.
People were coming the
Okeechobee in steamboats and
then by train. The East Coast
Railroad came down from
Kissimmee to Okeechobee,
finally linking little Okeechobee
with the rest of the state with
fast transportation.
Well, with all the new people
coming to town there had to be
places for them to stay. There
were hotels and more of them
than you might imagine.


"The first hotel in town was
called the Okeechobee and it
was owned by Bill Coats, built
in 1913 or so," said resident his-
torian and Judge Bill Hendry.
"Bill Coats was instrumental in
getting Okeechobee County
named its own county.
"There was the Hotel Albert,
where Okeechobee Office Sup-
ply is now. That places it directly
across the street (S.W. Fifth
Avenue or Osceola) from the
Northern Hotel. I remember it
had a pool room downstairs. It
was behind where Gladys'
Restaurant is.
"The Albert was owned by
Albert Berka, an Austrian who
came here just before World
War I. He had been a baker in
the Austrian army. His son,
Albert, Jr. was killed in the Battle
of the Bulge. Albert owned and
operated a bakery here for a
long time.
"The Laworn Hotel was a

"The Northern Hotel was at

some boys who had escaped from

ner of the building. The man who
owned it was Greek. Michael


Marks was his name. (The post
office was also in the hotel up
north on the Parrott Avenue side..)
Getting back toward the rail-
road, the Hillsboro Hotel was on
the opposite side of S W. Second
Street from the other hotels, just a
bit east of them.
"Then there was the Hotel
Riverside. It was on North Park

Iraq's High Tribunal hands down
verdicts and sentences Sunday for
Saddam and seven co-defendants
- judicial findings that stood the
chance of tipping the country into a
full-blown sectarian civil war after a
trial that stretched over nine months
in 39 sessions and ended nearly 3 1/2
months ago.
It was hoped that Saddam's trial
would heal the deep wounds
among Iraqis as they watched their
former tormentor stand before his
accusers and suffer the conse-
quences of nearly a quarter-century
of brutal rule, during which tens of
thousands of Shiites and ethnic
Kurds were killed.
In the meantime, however, the
center of the country flamed with
sectarian killings that pitted Sad-
dam's now disaffected Sunni back-
ers against the newly empowered
Shiites and their revenge-seeking
militiamen and death squads.
AI-Maliki, who has been in office


since May, has essentially looked the
other way, paying lip-service to his
role as leader of a nominal "unity
government." His Islamic Dawa
party claimed responsibility for a
1982 assassination attempt on Sad-
dam that allegedly prompted a wave
of revenge killings in the city of
Dujail.
The verdicts to be handed down
Sunday will decide the guilt or inno-
cence of the eight men on charges
of crimes against humanity for the
Dujail crackdown in which the
accused allegedly arrested hundreds
of people, including women and
children, tortured some to death and
killed 148 in all.
Ali al-Haidari, a witness in the
Dujail case who still lives there, said
the Tigris River city of 84,000 was
quiet on the eve of the verdict. The
market town is about 50 miles north
of Baghdad.
Al-Haidari said Shiite tribesmen
and police had mobilized on the roads
and fields nearby in preparation for
revenge attacks from Sunnis, whose
communities surround the city.
"We are preparing to celebrate
tomorrow if he is sentenced to
death," said al-Haidari, who lost

20,000 children per year.
"Our educational programs
are an outreach in Okeechobee
and neighboring communities in
our continuing efforts to make it
possible for people and wildlife
to co-exist," said Ms. Arnold.
Day-to-day operations at the
center concentrate on caring for
the animals. Animals that cannot
be returned to the wild are
offered a permanent home,
though the wildlife center's ulti-
mate mission is to rescue, reha-
bilitate and return recovered ani-
mals to their natural habitat. Mr.
Pierson's mission is to ensure
that Ms. Arnold can keep doing
just that.

HOSA blood drive to take place at OHS


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School
chapter of Health Occupational
Students of America (HOSA) will
be hosting the second blood drive
of the 2006-2007 school year at
OHS on Nov. 8.
The requirements in place for
donations are regulated by the
American Red Cross and include
the donors being at least 16 years
of age and having parent permis-
sion to donate. Donors also must
be in good health and have not


had a tattoo or piercing in the last
year. Donors must also be in good
health and not on antibiotics.
More extensive requirements can
be found on the
Red Cross' web-
site.
"We -r
hold the -
blood drives in school in hopes of
making the students into life long
donors," said HOSA sponsor Mrs.
Charlene Avant. "If we start the
pattern now and they continue to
donate, then we would take care
of the problem of blood short-


ages."
"As of (Friday) afternoon we
had 55 students signed up to
donate," Mrs. Avant continued.
"Some will get turned away for
various reasons; they've gotten a
tattoo in the last year, or they have
a low red blood cell level. If we
have between 40 and 50 donors,
we're happy."
Prior to donation, each donor
is required to present a picture ID
and is given a quick checkup by
the medical staff to ensure that it
is safe for them to donate blood.
They take a small. sample to


ensure that the donor has enough
red blood cells that it is not dan-
gerous for them to give. After-
ward the actual donation process
takes about ten minutes.
After the blood is taken it is
divided into the three compo-
nents that make up blood; red
blood cells, platelets, and plasma.
These parts are then sent to hospi-
tals around the area for distribu-
tion.
The blood drive is organized
by HOSA and all of the donations
go to the American Red Cross.

Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
ATVs: The Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office is so worried
about ATV riders they are not paying attention to the gang problems
that we have in Okeechobee. They also need to worry more about
the extreme problem we have with drugs in Okeechobee. In the
Okeechobee News they told about how many people have died
from ATV accidents in the whole state. If we look at how many peo-
ple have died from drug overdose in Okeechobee alone I wonder
what number we would come up with. I think as long as our chil-
dren are not out stealing or doing drugs they should not be so strict
on ATV riding. Think about the number of teenage pregnancy in
Okeechobee. At least ATV riders are not occupying their time with
this. Okeechobee has way more serious issues than ATV's. Editor's
Note: This caller is referring to a recent ordinance passed by the
Okeechobee County Board of County Commission banning the use
of ATVs on all county roads.

OHS CLUB: Okeechobee High School has denied a request by a
group of gay students for a club meeting of a Gay-Straight Alliance.
Other clubs are allowed to meet on school property after school.
There are all kinds of clubs that meet there. But the gay students
were told they could not have a club that mentioned sexual orienta-
tion. I really don't understand the problem. If it is a Gay-Straight
Alliance, it sounds like everyone is welcome. So what is the school
board's big problem with this?

UNDER AGE: I think the school was correct in saying no. I base
this only because these kids are under age. If this was a college, I
would not have a problem the kids are over the age of 18. I
believe the statement in the paper was "sexual orientation is a home
issue" and I agree with that.

LAW: I think the school board is foolish if they think this won't be
challenged. Other school systems have been sued and the law is
pretty clear. It's a civil rights issue. The students have the same right
to meet as do other student clubs. A Gay-Straight Alliance is a club
about understanding and tolerance for others. It's not promoting a
certain sexual orientation just admitting that more than one sexu-
al orientation exists. Or, does the school board want to pretend the
kids don't know that some people are gay? These kids watch televi-
sion. They know there are gays and bisexuals in the world.

PROPOSAL: The proposal seems like the cattlemen are getting
the best of both worlds. The county will fix up the agri-center for
them, and even name it for them, and they only have to agree to a
five-year contract. Meanwhile, they can sell their old rodeo grounds
for big bucks. My question is, what will happen after five years? Will
the cattlemen take the profits from selling their land on U.S. 441 and
build their own new rodeo grounds somewhere else? I do think it
would be good to combine the rodeo and festival with the livestock
show and turn the whole thing into a real county fair. Of course to
do that, they would need to also build new livestock barns as well
because if the rodeo is in the arena, they can't set up the cow pens
there. You would need a cow barn and a pig barn in addition to the
current, horse barn. The current barn is not big-enough for the live-
stock show animals, plus it would be full of the horses for the rodeo.
A county fair would be tremendous for the county. But between
what the fair committee wants and what the cattlemen want, I am
worried the taxpayers are going to end up broke. Editor's Note: This
caller touches on a very important point taxpayer dollars. If the
county decided to enter into the proposed agreement the money to
make the desired improvements would most likely have to come
from the host fees paid to the county by Waste Management for the
Okeechobee Landfill. However, a new landfill operation has
begun in Osceola County that has impacted the waste stream to
the Okeechobee Landfill. As a result, last quarter's check from
Waste Management to Okeechobee County was about $500,000
less than normal due to this new facility. On average, host fees
paid to the county are around $2 million per quarter. Also, it is quite
likely the host fees paid to Okeechobee County couldbe reduced
even more due to other regional landfills opening in the future.
With that in mind, we've been told the only other place where the
county could find the money to make these improvements would
be the taxpayers. We ask that you keep watching the Okeechobee
News because we are currently working on a more in-depth article
on this issue that will be published next week.

U.S. may need more than a zinger Lady Brahman 2006-2007


By Daniel Shube
While the PGA of America
has not made an official
announcement, reports have
leaked out that Paul Azinger will
be named to captain the 2008
U.S. Ryder Cup team. It is ironic
that Azinger has most recently
been a teammate of Nick Faldo
in the ABC broadcast booth, and
now he will face-off against him
at the PGA's course at Valhalla.
Azinger was my personal
favorite for the job. As the U.S.
team has lost the past two cups
in record fashion, you have to
wonder why anyone would
want this post.
Azinger might be the best
man for this impossible task. He
has won a major (The PGA
Championship) and has never
lost a singles match in Ryder Cup
play. This is telling though as his
overall record is under .500
against the European squad.
My concern has always been
... that the U.S. team plays as indi-

viduals and lacks the teamwork
that the Europeans have dis-
played. Azinger has always been
a true gentleman in this sport of
gentlemen. His winning battle
over Lymphoma shows he has
courage and the will to win. The
million-dollar question is how
will he infuse his spirit into a
team that has lost theirs?
The two new captains will be
working their way up to the
matches in very different ways.
Azinger has left the broadcast
booth to continue his playing
career. Faldo has become one of
golf's most coveted, television
analysts. Both positions provide


different opportunities. Faldo
will be his usual critical self,
watching the best players from
the booth. Azinger will be on the
fairways and in the locker room,
competing with the very players
he will have to coach to a win
(and against those who he will
need to beat).
While it could be said that
Azinger has nothing to lose,
there is plenty at stake. The
Ryder Cup franchise has
become one of the biggest in the
world of sports. Just like any
hometown fans, the U.S. golf
fans want to see a winner. View-
ers would at least like to watch a

Farm-City Week Local youth competes in All American Dairy Show

Nov. 17- 23


TALLAHASSEE Autumn is a
time of optimism for Florida
farmers as they prepare to har-
vest their winter crops to feed the
nation. Fall also brings the annual
Farm-City Week, which will be
observed November 17-23, and
Florida Agriculture Commission-
er Charles H. Bronson is urging
Floridians to take the opportunity
to reflect on the interdependence
of farmers, consumers and all
those whose efforts make Flori-
da's agricultural system work.
"Every year, Farm-City Week
reminds us all rural and urban
residents alike that we live and
work together in the same envi-
ronment and depend on each
other," Bronson said.
Farm-City Week started by
the National Farm-City Council
and promoted nationally by the
American Farm Bureau is
observed the seven days leading
up to and including Thanksgiv-
ing. Under the theme "Partners in
Progress," Farm-City Week
salutes all those who work as part
of the complex network that
brings food from the field to the
table. These "Partners in
Progress" include farmers and
ranchers, researchers, proces-
sors, brokers, truckers and ship-
pers, advertisers, wholesalers
and retailers. This network results
,in numerous benefits to society
*by providing an abundance and
variety of food as well as products
used to make clothing, housing,
medicines, and countless other
items used daily.
. "The key is the interdepend-
ence among those who produce
the products, those who con-
sume the products, and all those
in the production and marketing
chain between the producer and
consumer," said Bronson. "These
vital farm-city partnerships -
with rural and urban communi-
ties working together have
made the most of our rich agri-
cultural resources, and they con-
tinue to contribute to our health
and well being and to the
strength of our economy."
Bronson also urged Floridians
to visit their local community
farmers' markets during the fall
and winter to enjoy fresh Florida
fruits and vegetables at the peak
of freshness, and wholesome-
ness.
nShopping at farmers' markets-
is a growing trend in Florida, and
the number of farmers' markets
in the state has doubled in the last
10 years. More than 70 commu-

nity farmers' markets are listed
with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices. Half of Florida's 67 counties
have farmers' markets.
"The increasing popularity of
farmers' markets is due to a cou-
ple of factors," Bronson said. "As
people have become more
health-conscious, there's a grow-
ing demand for fresh, high-quali-
ty produce. And what could be
more healthful than produce
that's grown locally, often just
minutes away from your home?"
People who shop at farmers'
markets enjoy fresh, wholesome
produce throughout the growing
season, while helping to keep
small farms viable. There are also
less obvious benefits: buying
locally grown food conserves
energy and other natural
resources, reduces air and water
pollution, preserves green space,
and helps build a stronger, more'
close-knit community.
"There tends to be a social
aspect to the markets," Bronson
said. "The historic ties between
farmer and consumer are
restored."
Florida's 44,000 commercial
farmers grow more than 280 dif-
ferent crops. Year round, Florida
ranks No. 2 nationally in the U.S.
production of fresh vegetables.
Florida provides 80 percent of the
fresh vegetables grown in the
United States during January,
February and March of each year.
Florida agriculture has an esti-
mated overall economic impact
of more than $87 billion annually.
