Okeechobee observes Veterans' Day


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul May drew upon his own
experience in the U. S. Air Force
for his Veterans' Day speech.
"If not for the military, I would
not be standing before you as
sheriff," he said.
The sheriff was the featured
speaker at the annual program in
Veteran's Park sponsored by
America Legion Post 64.
Before .the program started
the quartet, "New Ground"
entertained the crowc;d gathered
under the shade of the oak trees
by performing gospel songs.
During the program,. the\ sang
"The National Anthem".
Bea Briney, auxiliary presi-
dent, led the group in the Pledge
of Allegiance.
Mr. May served in the U. S. Air
Force from 1964 to 1968. In 1969,
he joined the Florida Highway
Patrol and served that organiza-
tion until he retired in 2003 and
ran for sheriff. He has two chil-
dren, and, as he put it," three and
three quarter grandchildren."
The sheriff stated that if you
do not think our military should
be in Iraq, you should speak your
opinion. If you do think our mili-
tary should be in Iraq you should
speak your opinion.

L. C. Fortner was no doubt thinking of the sacrifices made
by the veterans whose names are inscribed on stone
tablets at Veterans' Park: His moment of reflection was
captured following the traditional Veterans' Day ceremony
in the park.


"You have that right because
of veterans," he said.
He noted that the armistice
signed on November 11, 1918
marked the conclusion of World
War I, "the war to end all wars."
To commemorate that event,


Armistice Day was made a holi-
day in 1926 and in 1954 the name
was changed to Veterans' Day to
honor veterans of all wars.

Traveling pioneer preachers


rode horses to spread the Word


Edited by MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida
The Sunland Tribune was
published between 1877 and
1883 on the west coast of Central
Florida. At that time, the only set-
tlement in the Okeechobee area
was in Basinger (the Raulersons
not having made their pilgrimage
south) a search of their archives
yielded information (circa 1885)
about traveling preachers.
Churches were few and far
between, if at all in the wild lands
that our homes, stores and towns
were then. Traveling preachers
often covered thirty or forty miles
a day, most days. Rain or shine -
mosquitoes or floods notwith-
standing!
With the establishment of the
state capital in Tallahassee on the
old fields of the Seminole Indians
and the development which fol-


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history





lowed in Middle Florida, settlers
were drawn by the beauty of the
vast wilderness, the risk of hostile
Indians notwithstanding. People
came to the frontier that was the
recently formed Territory of Flori-
da.
Along with these adventurous
settlers came equally adventur-
ous and dedicated Baptist,
Methodist, Presbyterian and
Catholic, circuit riding preachers


whose names now appear in the
annals of early Florida history to
tend the spiritual needs of these
undaunted trail blazers. Many of
this pioneer "flock" would settle
in isolated areas of the new fron-
tier, would literally hack their way
through thick vegetation, dense
forests and swamplands, would
clear the land, till the soil and
carve homes for their families.
The "men of God" who came to
tend these hardy souls were just
as tough as those they served.
The circuit preacher made his
way from settlement to settle-
ment, often many miles apart
and more often totally isolated. In
all probability, to the. Seminole,

horseback atop a dust covered
horse, a messenger of the "Great
Spirit" with his Bible often tucked

served in World War II. He now dis-
plays his father's medals as some
of his most prized possessions.
His wife's father served in the
invasion of Normandy.
Mr. May said that even though
his father put up with a lot from his
children, one thing he would have
not have been able to tolerate, was
his sons not serving in the military.
Sheriff May and his two brothers
served in the military.
The sheriff called attention to
the recent election where Floridi-
ans, in large numbers, voted to give
'a bigger homestead exemption to
disabled veterans.
"I think the people of Florida
told us how they feel about veter-
ans."
He said even though he saw no
combat and never left the United
states, the military made a pro-
found impact on his life.
. He noted a few days previously
Dowling Watford said that going
into the military was the best thing
that ever happened to his son or to
*him.


Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Okeechobee County Sheriff Paul May was the featured
speaker at the Veteran's Day Ceremony in Veterans' Park.


The sheriff said that in the mili-
tary he learned discipline and
responsibility and to think before
speaking.
The sheriff said that the honor
guard at the Tomb of the Unknown
Soldiers at Arlington National
Cemetery takes 21 steps and then
hesitates 21 seconds in honor the
21-gun salute. He noted that the
guard is changed every hour and
they have to be within certain


height and weight ranges. The first
six months of their tour is spent
studying the lives of 125 famous
people buried inArlington,
The Tomb of the Unknown Sol-
diers has been guarded continru-
ously since 1930.
The sheriff found it amazing
that so many people would do this
for someone they didn't know.
Sheriff May said that if a soldier
serving overseas were asked what


they wanted, it would be prayers
for a safe return home.
He noted that every Wednesday
morning at 7:45 a short devotion is
conducted by the sheriff's office
chaplain Reverend Joe Bishop. It is
a voluntary service but well attend-
ed, the sheriff said. Every Wednes-
day prayers are offered for our mili-
tary people. The sheriff said he
hoped that one day those prayers
would not be necessary. But he
added "As long as I am sheriff we
will have this service."
"God bless our veterans every-
where, God bless the U. S.A." he
concluded
After Sheriff May's speech, the
Okeechobee High School Honor
Guard, under the command of
Cadet Sergeant Major Jonathan
Johnson, fired a 21-gun salute and
Bill Kinney of VFW Post 10539
played "Taps" in memory of our
fallen veterans.
The program was opened and
dosed in prayer by Marjorie Forten-
berry, chaplain of American Legion
Post 64.

For the Seminoles allowed the rid-

Many hours for the circuit riding
preacher, was spent with only his
horse for company. Horsemanship
was seen as a valuable skill for
these pioneer preachers.
"Of his faithful horse which
served him so many years, Rev. Ley

starved, would eat almost anything
from the kitchen or dairy, bear his
rider forty miles or more in a day so
smoothly... that... many were the
streams he swam with the feet of
the rider on top of the saddle reach-
ing the opposite shore perfectly
dry.... But I learned by experience
that when he was proper and I was
off my guard, he could place his
head between his forelegs, kick so
high that his back was nearly per-
pendicular, at the same time mak-
ing so sudden a whirl that his head
would be in the opposite direction

awkward pile in the road. But
farewell, Willie, I shall never look
upon your like again.'
In his book, Pioneer Florida, D.
B. McKay told of one such experi-
ence: "The circuit riders wore
leather trousers, the only kind that
would withstand the continuous
horseback riding. One of them was
fortunate enough to have two pairs
and left a pair hanging on the back
porch of a parishioner's home.
Some weeks later on Sunday
morning, he got them down and
put them on, walked over to the lit-
tle log church, up into the pulpit,
faced the congregation and said,
'Brethren and visitors, I am so
happy this morning.' At that same

seat of his trousers, ran out of the
church into the woods yelling, 'my
trousers are full of yaller jackets.' A
number of the men ran and caught
him, carried him to the parish-
ioner's home where he was treated
for his wounds. In those days most
of the men chewed tobacco so they
saturated the minister's wounds
with tobacco juice which quickly
drew the poison from. his system.
Within a few hours he was feeling
much better, but there was no
preaching that day."

UF president
proposes new

$1,000 annual fee
GAINESVILLE (AP) The Uni-
versity of Florida is considering an
additional $1,000 annual fee aimed
lat adding faculty and lowering
.class sizes.


The president of the state's
largest university, Bernie Machen,
proposed the increase to fund 200
'additional faculty members and
;100 faculty advisers and to lower
!the student-teacher ratio, expand
course offerings and offer under-
;graduates more guidance on their
way to graduation.
It really comes down to an
!issue of what kind of education do
;you want your child to have," uni-
iversity spokesman Steve Orlando
!told the Orlando Sentinel on Friday.
,"Unfortunately, to get a better edu-
cation, it costs money."


said club treasurer Kavisha
Zaveri. "I know that we can do
better in the rest of the drives this
year.",
In November the club will be
holding a toiletry drive benefiting
a local nursing home. Members
are asked to bring in travel size
toiletries for donation.
Also during this month they
will be collecting animal food to
give to the animal shelter for the
holiday season. Donations of dog


or cat food are asked from the
members.
The Beta Club Induction Cere-
mony is scheduled to take place
on Nov. 14. Parents of Inductees
are invited to come and see their
child inducted into this organiza-
tion. The ceremony will take
place in the OHS Auditorium and
refreshments will be offered fol-
lowing induction.
On Dec. 2 Beta members are
offered an opportunity to show


their pride as a member of the
OHS family in another campus
clean-up. Clean-ups are held sev-
eral times throughout the school
year and involve the students
doing things like planting,
mulching and generally beautify-
ing the campus. The also offer
students in the club the opportu-
nity to receive the community
service hours that they need to
fulfill their club obligations.
In December the Beta Club


will be accumulating children's
toys for their annual toy drive. As
well as possibly participating in
'Trees of Hope.'
The National Beta Club is an
organization founded on the



ideas of promoting Leadership,
Community Service and Acade-
mic achievement in students.

4 OPINION

'at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforunms

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.comL 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.
DISCUSSIONS: Guess the Okeechobee School's policy of only
promoting abstinence is not working that well with the kids, consid-
ering the high teen pregnancy rate. Maybe they should quit trying to
pretend there isn't a problem and start letting kids have honest dis-
cussions.

OUR BUSINESS: I'd like to address this Speak Out titled "homo-
phobes" where somebody is telling us to mind our own business
and not to worry about if Charlie Crist is gay or if there are gay clubs
in our schools. They say we are homophobes and we shouldn't
worry about it because it's none of our business. I'd like to say it is
our business because in both cases we are paying taxes for this. So if
we are paying taxes whether it's Crist's salary or for the school -
we should have a right to say something about where our tax
money goes That makes it our business.

LETTER: I would like to mention that the Letter to the Editor enti-
tied "Be careful with your words" by Bennett Yeilding is one of the
greatest letters I've ever read in this paper. It's to the point and is
done very well and I just wanted to say thank you. I'm even going to
save it, it's so good.

DEVELOPMENTS: I think developers who build multi-family
housing should build it next to where they live.

RIGHTS: I read another attack on the proposed gay club in Speak
Out. The caller even accused the ACLU of trying to stir up dissention
all across America in a vague attempt to associate the ACLU with the
students' desire to form this club. I fail to see the connection. It is the
ACLU that defends your right to voice your anti-gay opinion and my
right to say you appear to be trying to stir up others to deny the
rights of others to freely and peaceably associate. Just to be accu-
rate, however, I looked up the book you recommend "Indefensi-
ble." It was written by David Seige. The rest of the title is "One
lawyer's journey into the inferno of American justice." It looks inter-
esting.

NO CLUB: Gay students should not have a club at schools. There
should be no clubs unless they are related strictly to education. All
other clubs should be performed outside of school and gay clubs
should not be accepted anywhere or anytime.

VOTER TURN OUT: Maybe the low voter turn out was because of
all the fuss andmud slinging prior to the election. The Republicans
.--blamed the Democrats for all the things going wrong in the world.
This article I found seems to indicate they're still pointing the finger.

Raulerson to launch new ER process


By Bill Casian

Each year, Raulerson Hospital
experiences an increase in the
number of emergency room (ER)
visits creating the challenge of
managing overcrowding.
Because of the community's fast
growth, it's reasonable to think
that we may end this year with
even more ER visits.
To address the limited capacity
in our emergency department
(ED), Raulerson Hospital will
launch a process in November to


provide medical care and treat-
ment to patients who come to the
emergency room with and with-
out emergency medical condi-
tions.
As always, all patients will
receive a medical screening by
qualified medical personnel to
determine the nature of their ill-
ness and its severity. At times,
patients who are determined to
be "non-emergent" or "non-
urgent" cases will be given the fol-
lowing options: follow up with
the patient's family physician;
seek medical care and treatment

at a community clinic or urgent
care center. A list of community
resources will be given to that
patient for reference; or, stay to
see the ED doctor for care and
treatment after being registered
and paying the hospital and physi-
cian fees for such medical care
and treatment, which often
relates to co-pays, deductibles or
a portion of the bill.
In any of these situations, if the
patient's condition worsens it is
advised that they return to the
emergency department for care.
The medical screening exam


conducted by qualified medical
personnel allows the hospital to
focus its resources in providing
emergency care to those who are
the sickest and to educate
patients on other, sometimes less
costly, community resources for
medical care and treatment for
non-emergent medical condi-
tions.
Raulerson Hospital is adopting
this process because an ever-
increasing number of patients rely
on hospital ERs for their primary
medical care, a costly and often
less-effective means.

White meat, dark meat and plenty of skins


By Daniel Shube
You may call it the Silly Season
or by it's newer name, the Chal-
lenge Season, either way this time
of year brings interesting and fun
golf match-ups to go with your
holiday fun.
A Thanksgiving weekend tradi-
tion is the Skins Game. This year's
LG Skins Game will feature
defending champion Fred Funk
and challengers John Daly,
Stephen Ames and all-time skins
game money leader Fred Cou-
ples.
The event will take place on
Saturday, Nov. 25 and Sunday
Nov. 26 at Trilogy Golf Club in La
Quinta, Calif. The match will be
televised on ABC from 3:30 until
6:00 p.m. Prize money is
$1,000,000 with 20 per cent going
to the players' favorite charities.
When Daly was recently asked
what it is like playing in the Skins


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube

Game, he replied, "It is tough
because you know what every-
body is doing in the group you are
playing with, so that makes it kind
of easier because it is tough and
nerve-wracking. It is kind of hit or
miss. You play aggressive as you
possibly can at the right time and
hopefully get a Skin."
Fred Funk was asked to com-
ment on Annika Sorenstam out


driving him in last years game and
said, "What happened on the
third hole last year when Annika
got it by me and the skirt came
out, you know, it was something
that was planned. I asked Annika
about it about a month before
and I think it has definitely helped
me loosen me up and it helped
loosen Annika up and even Tiger
and Freddie had a great time with
it." Funk continued, "I really look
forward to trying to recreate that
atmosphere we had last year this
year, and I think it is really fun to -
you know, I love playing with
John Daly. I love playing with
Freddie Couples and watching
their golf swings. Johnny just
launches it, and Freddie is still -
that swing is just fantastic."
Funk, who was obviously
nervous last year, commented, "I
will be a lot less nervous this year.
I was shaking on that first tee, and
I actually hit it pretty good on the


first tee. Annika was only a yard
behind me and I knew I was in
trouble from that point."
Daly has had a difficult season,
with both personal problems and
injuries interfering with his sea-
son. Asked about the injuries,
Daly said, "It was the right pinkie.
It was the 12th hole at the
Canyons which was my third hole
the first day at Vegas, it broke. I
could actually turn my whole
pinkie around. The injuries have
just killed me this year."
Daly's poor showing will have
an effect on his ability to play in
2007, without being exempt on
the PGA Tour. Daly has hopes of
getting exemptions, to which he
commented, "I have put in a lot of
time on the tour. I have been faith-
ful to a lot of the tournaments. I
have played in tournaments the
tour had asked me to play in
because they needed me- to play.
So I hope a lot of sponsors out
there will give me some exemp-
tions. LA is the one that gave my
first exemption; I want to thank
the Nissan and the LA Open for
giving me that opportunity. It is a
tough situation to be in, but it is
just going to make me work hard-
er and hopefully play better."
So, if you have not yet gotten
your full portion of golf, save
some room after Thanksgiving to
the Skins Game. It may be just a
little silly, but there will be some
serious golf played as well!

Consumers need to check out charities before donating


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is reminding people to
check out charities before donat-
ing as the holiday season
approaches. Consumers should
,take time to investigate how a
charity spends its money so they
know their donations are being
spent prudently. The holiday sea-
son kicks off one of the busiest
times of the year for charitable
organizations, many collecting
about half their annual dona-
tions between Thanksgiving and
New Year's Day.
"The number of charities and
professional solicitors located or
doing business in Florida contin-
ues to rise every year, with more
than 11,600 registered with the
Department in 2006," Bronson
said. "With so many organiza-
tions vying for consumers'
money, it's important that con-
sumers make sure a charity is
following the law and is benefit-


ing those in need."
Florida law requires most
charities to register with the
Department and provide finan-
cial information about income
and expenditures. Charities must
disclose how much they have
raised, how much is spent on
administrative costs including
salaries, how much goes toward.
fundraising and the amount that,
actually is spent on the charita-
ble purpose. The United States.
Supreme Court has ruled that
federal and state governments.
cannot dictate how much a char-
ity spends on the actual charita-
ble purpose. However, the!
Department's Division of Con-
sumer Services makes available
to the public the financial infor-
mation so consumers can make
educated decisions about where
to contribute.
"People can find out whether
a charity is properly registered or
properly exempt from registra-
tion, and they can also get a lot


of information about how a reg-
istered charity does business,"
Bronson said.
Bronson provided the follow-
ing tips to consider when decid-
ing whether to donate to an
organization:
Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive-sound-
ing name. Find out what it actu-
ally does.
Be wary of emotional
appeals and organizations that
have only vague plans for spend-
ing the funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-.
zation-not an individual.
Be wary of organizations
that offer to send a "runner" to
pick up your donation. Rep-
utable charities are willing to
wait for your contribution.
Consumers have the right
to ask for an organization's
financial report and its federal
tax identification number, the
latter of. which you'll need to


claim your contribution as a tax
deduction.
Do not donate over the
phone.
Ask the organization to
send you written information
about its activities.
If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the Department.
Up-to-date information on
charities is available by visiting
the Division of Consumer Ser-
vices web site at
http://www.800helpfla.com and
clicking on Gift Givers' Guide in
the left-hand column. Con-
sumers can obtain the same
information by calling the Con-
sumer Hotline at 1-800-HELPFLA


(1-800-435-7352) or 1-800-FL-
AYUDA (1-800-352-9832) for
Spanish-speaking consumers.
People who have additional


questions about charitable
organizations or want to report
an unregistered charity should
call the Department's hotline.

Gainesville Dairy produc-
ers needing help to recover from
2005 hurricane losses have an
opportunity to apply for assis-
tance from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, through a $17
million 2005 Dairy Disaster
Assistance Paymient Program
(DDAP-II), authorized by the
Emergency Agricultural Disaster
Assistance Act of 2006,
announced Kevin L. Kelley, State
Executive Director for the
USDA's Farm Service Agency.
The sign-up period for DDAP-
II began, on Nov. 1, and ends
Nov. 30, 2006.
* "Last year's destructive hurri-
canes caused large production
losses and herd deaths, as well
as milk spoilage due to closed
processing plants and damaged
bulk tanks," said Kelley. "This
new Dairy Assistance Payment
Program will help dairy produc-
ers recover from these devastat-
ing losses."
Eligible DDAP-II counties are
those declared a natural disaster
by. Secretary Johanns or desig-
nated a major disaster or emer-
gency by President Bush for 2005
calendar year hurricanes Katri-
na, Ophelia, Wilma or Rita.
Counties contiguous to an
approved county are also eligi-.
ble.
Counties declared' disaster
areas by Hurricane Dennis are
ineligible for DDAP-II because
the legislation did not provide for
disaster losses resulting from
Hurricane Dennis.
Producers in 37 Florida coun-
ties are eligible to apply for the
program:
The following 24 counties
were primary disaster areas as a
result of the
2005 hurricanes: Bay, Bre-
vard, Broward, Charlotte, Collier,
Escambia, Franklin, Glades,
Gulf, Hardee, Hendry, High-
lands, Indian River, Lee, Martin,
Miami-Dade, Monroe, Okaloosa,
Okeechobee, Palm Beach, St.
Lucie, Santa Rosa, Sarasota, and
Walton. The following 13 coun-
ties are also eligible as they are
contiguous: Calhoun, DeSoto,
Hillsborough, Holmes, Jackson,
Liberty, Manatee, Orange, Osce-
ola, Polk, Volusia, Wakulla, and
Washington.
To be eligible, a dairy produc-
er must have suffered dairy pro-
duction and spoilage losses from
August through December 2005
due to Hurricane Katrina, or
losses from October through
December 2005 due to Hurri-
cane Wilma, or related condi-
tions, and suffered the losses in
an eligible DDAP-II county.
The Farm Service Agency will
determine dairy production and
spoilage losses using the estab-
lished history of the operation's
commercial production market-
ed and production dumped or
not marketed during the applica-
ble claim period.
An eligible dairy operation's
payment is calculated by multi-
plying the applicable payment
rate by the operation's total eligi-
ble losses.
The payment rate for eligible
losses varies depending on the
average monthly mailbox milk
price for Florida, the Southeast,
Western Texas and Appalachian
states marketing orders reported

Service during the claim period
months where the dairy opera-
tion is physically located.
The maximum payment rate
for Florida is $18.19 per. hun-
dredweight
($0.1819 per pound), aver-
aged to account for the mailbox
price from August through Octo-
ber 2005, when the hurricanes
occurred. An eligible dairy oper-
ation's payment is calculated by
multiplying the payment rate,
which varies by state, by the
operation's total eligible losses.
Alternate payment rates may


be used if the total DDAP-II fund-
ing is insufficient to fully com-
pensate eligible producers for
eligible losses.
Dairy producers can apply for
the program at local FSA offices.

TALLAHASSEE Increasing
sales of Florida-grown agricultur-
al products and therefore enhanc-
ing the state's economy is a major
duty of the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices. Using a variety of marketing
and advertising methods, the
Department has made the "Fresh
from Florida" logo a familiar icon
throughout the state and nation,
and even around the globe.
Retail store posters and dis-
plays, recipe brochures, bill-
boards, newspaper and magazine
advertisements, cooking demon-
strations, and radio and television
ads all have been mainstays of
this successful marketing cam-
paign that helps Florida's farmers
increase their market share in the
competitive global economy.

Once-obscure aging vehicles now "rolling billboards".


But a new component of the
"Fresh from Florida" campaign is
turning heads and drawing smiles
from motorists and pedestrians
around the state.
While conducting everyday
business, the Department's previ-
ously unmarked vehicles routine-
ly passed through traffic unno-
ticed. Each year Department
employees across the state log a
multitude of miles while engaged
in activities on behalf of Florida's
citizens, such as inspecting gro-
cery stores and gas pumps, and
conducting marketing activities
on behalf of agricultural produc-
ers.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson felt
that since the vehicles were con-
stantly on the road they would
make ideal "rolling billboards" for
Florida agricultural products.
"It's a cost-effective way to uti-
lize existing resources," Bronson
said. "We decided to cover these
aging vehicles with the 'Fresh


from Florida' message to help call
attention to the wide variety of
agricultural products that make
up our state's important agricul-
tural industry.'
Several Department vehicles
have undergone a treatment in
which a temporary adhesive lami-
nate material is affixed to the exte-
rior. This literally "wraps" the car
with a large and colorful and
eye-catching --"Fresh from Flori-
da" advertisement.
A unique design is created for
each segment of agriculture that
is being promoted. Several
Department cars, vans and trucks
have been "wrapped" with mes-
sages promoting fresh fruits and
vegetables, horticulture, seafood,
cattle, horses, wildflowers, water
quality, forestry, and +tropical
fruits.
"We're always looking for new
and innovative ways to increase
the number of 'Fresh from Flori-
da' consumer impressions,"
Bronson said. "These rolling bill-


boards are proving to be a great
way to get the message out on
behalf of our state's farmers."
The Florida' Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices is statutorily mandated to
.provide professional marketing
services to Florida's agricultural
community through its Division of
Marketing and Development.
These marketing promotions are
part of the ongoing "Fresh from
Florida" campaign, an identifica-
tion and promotional program
designed to boost the image of
Florida agriculture and increase
sales by helping, consumers to
e e.sily idrentihf Florida-grown agri-
cultural products at retail stores.
The "Fresh from Floin.la" cam-
paign also helps increase public
awareness of the importance of
* Florida's agriculture industry,
which has an stiniati'td ,overall
economic impact of more than
$87 billion annually.

The Lake Okeechobee Fast Track (LOFT) project is a group of facilities designed, to
capture stormwater runoff north. of Lake Okccchobcc and treat it to remove
phosphorous before it enters the Lake. Removing this phosphorous will help to improve
Lake Okeechobee's water quality. The facilities needed to accomplish this objective
include the Taylor Creek Reservoir, the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area
(STA), and pumps to reroute S-133 runoff to the STA. The reservoir Will hold
approximately 32,000 acre-feet of water at a site located north of the City of
Okeechobee. Lakeside Ranch STA will be a constructed wetland area, approximately
2,700 acres, adjacent to Lake Okeechobee in western Martin County. The pumps to
reroute runoff will be located near the rim canal at the S-191 structure.
For additional information regarding this meeting, please contact Renee DeSantis
(561)242-5520 x4075 or rd'esanti@sfwmd.gov.
