Mullins was booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail' under a
bond of $7,000, and has since
posted bond.
A report by Detective Van
Deman states that an inventory of
The Lolly Shop in Sebring follow-
ing an Aug. 7 fire indicated that
several antique and collectible
items were missing and probably
stolen.
One of the items was
described as a Royal Doulton
character mug. On the bottom of
the mug is an insignia stating
Henry VIII, D.6642, Royal Doul-
ton, Tablewear LTD. 1975, and the
numbers 21. Those numbers are
unique to this particular mug,
wrote the detective.
On Nov. 2, the owner of the
store entered the e-bay site and
saw a Royal Doulton mug for sale
that reportedly displayed the
same numbers. Based on the pic-
tures of the mug, she identified
the mug as the one that was
stolen from her business, stated
Detective Van Deman.

Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime

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.
SECULARISTS: So let them have their gay club. What comes next?
A club for gangs? Atheists? Socialists? How about a club for a Christ-
ian prayer group? The ACLU would love that one, wouldn't they? See
how ridiculous all this is? The schools can no longer make decisions.
The secularists are running our country, and we're watching them as
they take over.

CLUB: I believe in my heart that Dr. Cooper did the right thing by
refusing to allow this club on the high school campus. The ACLU may
cause her decision to be overruled, in which case all clubs on campus
may very well cease to exist. In such an event, I'm told by a member
of the Okeechobee Ministerial Association that some of the local
churches might provide a venue for some of the clubs. The war
between tradition and secularism rages. In the darkest days of
Apartheid Bishop Desmond Tutu said: "I've checked the last page in
the book, and we win." I enjoy reading your thoughts and opinions.
Don't let anyone tell you that you have no right to express yourself-
and yes, the primary purpose of a school is to educate. If only it could
do so without the ugly head of secularism being raised.

SECULARISM: What is so ugly about secularism? Without it, we
stand a chance that some off-the-wall religion could just as easily
come into control and then where would we be?

I DON'T GET IT: I guess I just don't get it. Life is secular. Eating my
lunch is secular. Taking a shower is secular. Stopping at a stop sign is
secular. Now, if someone tries to tell me I can't eat a certain food
because God doesn't approve, that is religion raising its head ugly
or not. It isn't secularism that interferes, its people of one religious
persuasion or another telling us we have to do things one way or
another to meet their approval. The most amazing thing to me is that
anyone who calls themselves a conservative would support this kind
of control of an individual's life. Next thing you know, someone will
be telling us that prayers don't count unless they're done facing a cer-
tain direction.

AGRI-CIVIC CENTER: 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 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 livestock 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.

PROPOSAL: I only can wonder how the commissioners can face
the public after trying to have the taxpayers come up with the funds to
redo the agri-civic center for the county fair some $1.5 million, and
now want to spend $500,000 to get it ready for the cattlemen to take
over. The Okeechobee News stated in Speak Out how the host fees
will be some $500,000 less per quarter because of competition from
Osceola County's-new landfill 1can onl \\ ish they would'do :miome
digging into how thewhole, agri-eivie center deal was put together. I
am still beating the old dead hor.e about why the agri-civic center
was built in the first place with no public hearing on it. And, no, I don't
have anything against agriculture; I just.don't think it is in our best
interests as taxpayers to subsidize it any more. Editor's Note: Just as a
note of clarification, the host fees paid to Okeechbbee County from,
Waste Management was $500,000 less last quarter. Whether future
payments to the county will be less is not known at this point. Howev-
er, it is a reasonable association that those payments will continue to,
be less than the $2 million paid each quarter to the county in the
past.)

OPINIONS: About the article titled Gay club denied. You men-
tioned the Gay-Straight Alliances in California. In 2004 there were 82
clubs in schools in the state of Florida that registered with the Gay Les-
bian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN): Also the whole absti-
nence thing really gets cancelled out when you see all the pregnant
students that are taking a parenting class at the high school and bring-
ing their kids to school with them for the day care program. I think the
school would really benefit from this club. It's not about people's
opinion on the matter. It's the fact that it is illegal for them to deny this
club. The Equal Access Act proves that.

CARP FOOD? Multiple choice question: The Okeechobee Landfill
Trust Fund is: A. the Okeechobee County Commissioners' play and
legacy building fund?; B. a secret fund for covert operations?; C. tax-
payer money that should be treated accordingly?; and, D. carp food?

HOMOPHOBES: You people must have more homophobic read-
ers than the average paper. Last week somebody was worried about
Charlie Crist's sexual preference and this week they are ranting and
raving about the gay club that didn't come about at Okeechobee High
School. Can't people leave others alone and live their own lives and
forget about what other people are doing? It's just none of their busi-
ness.

Letters


Be careful
with your words
In response to the letter print-
ed last Thursday, Nov. 2, by Jim
Shaffer: I don't know you but you
should be careful of what you
advocate when you obviously
don't have all the facts. Your cap-
tion to your article, "Leave God
out of government," gives people
the wrong idea.
Number one, you don't need
to "defend secular government."
It's doing quite well without you.
Ms. O'Hare and others have suc-
ceeded in eliminating prayer in
school, prayer before sporting
events, posting of the Ten Com-
mandments in halls of govern-
ment, etc.
What you might be interested


in learning is that our forefathers
and the founders of our nation
wanted to establish a government
that was not dictated by the exist-
ing religious state as they had
experienced in Europe, specifical-
ly England. Their intention was
not to eliminate all reference to
religion but rather to ensure that
religion and religious leaders
were not in control. Basic Ameri-
can History teaches us this fact. If
you recall, our declaration says
"We the people ...." It does not
start with, "We, the religious lead-
ers."
As early as our first president,
George Washington responded to
Congress by establishing the first
Thanksgiving with the following
words: "Whereas it is the duty of
all nations to acknowledge the
providence of Almighty God, to

An Okeechobee woman was

over 8 grams of suspected
cocaine was allegedly found in
her purse.
Dawn Michelle Robinson, 45,

that he

The report states that as he
was writing the citation, OCSO

Hunting season is now open in Florida


By Tony Youngi Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission
November means it's time to
gas up the truck and break out
your shooting iron, because the
2006-07 hunting season is here.
This month, general gun, fall
turkey, quail and gray squirrel,
snipe and the second phase of
mourning and white-winged
dove hunting seasons open.
The first thing you need to do
is pick up a $12.50 Florida resi-
dent hunting license. Non-resi-
dents pay $46.50 for a 10-day'
license or $151.50 for 12 months.
If you plan to hunt one of Flori-
da's many wildlife management
areas (WMAs), you'll also need a
$26.50 management-area permit,
and don't forget to stud' the
brochure for the specific area you
plan to hunt, because dates, bag
limits and rules differ greatly from
- area to area.
You can get these brochures at
tax collectors' offices and regional
Florida Fish and tWildlife Conser-
vation CUn-mmission ( \'C I ollices
in close proximitn to the area., Co
you car, d,:,onriload them from. the
FWC's wieb : site-
MyFWC.conm/hunting.
You can buy your license and


permits over the telephone by
calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA or on line at
MyFWC.com/license. Just have
your credit card ready. You can
also purchase them from tax col-
lectors' offices and most retail
outlets that sell hunting and fish-
ing supplies.
The general gunr season runs:
Nov. 11-Jan.. 21 in the Central
Hunting Zone. In the Northwest
Zone, it comes in Thanksgiving
Day and lasts four days until Nov.
26. Two weeks later, the season
reopens Dec. 9 and runs through
Feb. 14. For readers hunting the.
South Hunting Zone, the general
guri season's already in and lasts
until Jan. 7.
Hunters can take bucks having
at least one antler five inches or
longer. On private lands, the daily
bag limit for deer is two.
On private lands, hunters can
take Wil'd hogs yeai-round with
no bag'or size limits. On most, but,
not all, public lands, there's also
no bag or size limit on wild hogs,
and hunters can take tem during
any hunting season except spring
turkey. Check the WMA brochure
to be certain.
SThe highly anticipated anter-
less deer season, often called
"doe week" id Dec. 16-22 in the


Northwest Zone, Nov. 18-24 in the
Central Zone and Nov. 4-10 in the
South Hunting Zone.
During doe week, the daily bag
limit is one buck and one doe or
two bucks. You may not take two
does in one day like you may dur-
ing archery season, and spoiled
fawns are not legal game. Doe
week does not apply on WMAs.
If you hunt with deer dogs any-
where in Florida, special rules
and registration requirements
may apply. Call the FWC for
details.
Fall turkey season in the North-
west Hunting Zone is Nov. 23-26
and Dec. 9-Jan. 14. In the Central
and South Zones, it's Nov. 11-
Jan.7. Only bearded turkeys or
gobblers are legal game, and you
must have a $5 turkey permit to
hunt them. The bag limit's one
bird per day and a total of two
during the archery, crossbow,
muzzle loading gun and fall
turkey seasons combined.
It's also against the law to huntI
turkeys in Holmes County during
the fall season.
Quail and gray squirrel season
runs statewide Nov. 11-March 4.
There's a daily bag limit of 12 for
each, and shooting fox squirrels is
against the law.
Shooting hours for deer,


turkeys, quail and gray squirrels is
a half-hour before sunrise to a
half-hour after sunset. All legal
firearms, muzzleloaders, bows,
crossbows and handguns are
legal for taking these resident
game animals during the general
gun, anterless deer, fall turkey and
quail and gray squirrel seasons.
Snipe hunting in Florida ranks
second in the nation in number of
birds harvested each year, and the
season runs Nov. 1-Feb. 15
statewide. The second phase of
the mourning and white-winged
dove season also comes in this
month and runs Nov. 11-26.
Shooting hours for migratory
birds are one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset. The bag limits
are eight for snipe, and 12 for
doves.
You must get a no-cost migra-
tory bird permit if you plan to
hunt snipe, doves or any other
migratory game birds.
; For, up-to-date information on
Florida's public dove fields, call
the FWC's Dove Hunters' Hotline
at (850) 875-BIRD. The hotline
gets updated every Thursday
throughout the dove season.
Information includes dove densi-
ties, previous week's harvests and
field conditions.

Library


to hold


program
On Friday, Dec. 1, at 7 p.m.,
Judge Nelson Bailey will present
a program titled "Cow Hunters,
Cow Whips and Cur Dogs" at the
Okeechobee County Public
Library 206
S.W 16 St.
Judge Nelson
'Bailey has a
deep fascina-
tion with his
state's history
especially
with its agri-
cultural her-
itage. He also
has a passion Judge
for story- Nelson Bailey
telling. In -his
hundreds of performances
throughout the state as a "Florida
Cracker Storyteller" of the late
1800's, he shares his knowledge
of Florida's uniquely intertwined
agricultural history and multi-cul-
tural heritage. Judge Bailey's
Florida stories weave together a
fascinating multi-colored quilt of
Florida heritage and history.
Judge Bailey and his horse have
traveled over much of the land
about which he talks, including
riding alongside and herding
cows with the living descendants
'of many of the "Cracker," Black,
Spanish and Seminole people of
.whom he speaks. He offers a
'view of the land and of its people
that is steeped in the real history
of this place we call Florida. In
this presentation, learn about 500
years of the state's history as seen
through the story of the horse
and cow in Florida. Judge Nelson
Bailey is the only judge presiding
iti the branch courthouse in Belle
Glade. He is the only person listed
in the National Storytelling Direc-
tory as a celebrated teller of
exclusively Florida tales. He often
tells his stories while mounted on
his horse, a horse with Spanish
'bloodlines that goes back nearly
five hundred years in this state.
He is often accompanied by his
Florida Cur dog named "Cooter,"
:a traditional breed of Southern
herding dog used to gather and
hold herds of cattle. You will be
fascinated by this story of Flori-
da's history which Judge Bailey
tells as no one else can tell it. This
program is sponsored by a grant
from the Florida, Humanities
Council and is free and opeli to
the public. Dobors open at 6:30,
p.m.
