Cemetery holds local history


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
PAHOKEE In Pahokee,
tucked into the landscape
beside the dike, is a little ceme-
tery. Unless you lived there or
knew someone who knew the
history of Pahokee and the
Hurricane of 1928, it might not
mean anything to you. Mary
Salvatore Paulette was born. in
the house next door to the lit-
tle cemetery.
"It is the highest land in
Pahokee, so it was where peo-
ple were brought to be
buried," said her sister, Lucille.
"It never had a name, it was

just the cemetery."
But in 1928, a massive hur-
ricane wiped out the thriving
town and the other towns,
nearby. Over 2,000 people
died. But they aren't buried in


the little cemetery.
"After the storm," said Mary
,"they took all the bodies they
could up to Port Myacca and
buried them there. No one was
ever buried here again."
The. storm had destroyed
many of the monuments. The
only gravestone left standing is
that of Hazel. Cox, who died
before her second birthday.
The inscription on the tomb-
stone reads, 'How soon fades
theltender flower.'
So, the citizens of Pahokee
have made a kind of memorial
of the little cemetery (it never

Nov. is national adoption awareness month


MIAMI Department of Chil-
dren and Families (DCF) Secretary
Lucy Hadi asked Floridians
statewide to join in recognizing
November as National Adoption
Awareness Month while attending
National Adoption Day festivities
in Miami. Hadi joined Miami-Dade
Mayor Carlos Alvarez,
Congresswoman Carrie Meek,
representatives of local child wel-
fare agencies; the 11th Circuit
court and many south Florida
families to present Governor Jeb
Bush's proclamation declaring
November National Adoption
Awareness Month.
"Some Floridians travel half
way around the world to adopt a
child when there are children of


all ethnicities who desperately
need loving parents right here at
home," said Hadi. "Hundreds of
children across the state were
adopted this month, children who
now have someone to dry their
tears and help them find a future,
but there are many more still wait-
ing for that love to be provided to
them. How long will they have to
wait?"
Nationwide, approximately
118,000 children in foster care
await placement with a perma-
nent adoptive family. Today, a one-
day record of 75 adoptions took
place at Miami's Juvenile Justice
Center to raise awareness of Flori-
da youth available for adoption.
Currently, a total of 4,642 children


are available for adoption and
adoptive families have been iden-
tified for more than 2,727 of them.
However, more than 1,900 Florida
children still desperately need
adoptive families.
Through DCF's Family Safety
Program Office, Adoption Unit
staff work to find forever families
for children in the care and cus-
tody of the department so they
can experience the love and stabil-
ity of a secure family life. The
majority of children in custody of
the state are reunited with their
parents or placed with relatives,
however, some children remain in
the care of the state and through
the Adoption Program Office,
adoptive families are sought to


care for them.
Potential adoptive parents can
learn more about the adoption
process in Florida, how they can
assist children awaiting adoption,
even if they cannot become adop-
tive parents themselves, as well as
view children available for adop-
tion through the Department of
Children and Families Web site.
Visit www.dcf.state.fl.us/adoption
or call (800)-96-ADOPT to learn
more about the Adoption Pro-
gram Office. The Florida Depart-
ment of Children and Families is
committed to protecting the vul-
nerable, promoting strong and
economically self-sufficient fami-
lies, and advancing personal and
family recovery and resiliency.

ly and exclusivel\ in production or processing of agricultural products

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.

PROUD: I'd just like to say I am proud of the Okeechobee County
School Board, Superintendent and the OHS principal for standing up
about this straight-gay club they want to have at school. Sometimes
you have to disband other clubs for what you believe. Sometimes
people get hurt in the process but if it is for a good cause then it was
worth it. But I don't believe it will go that far. I don't believe anybody
will be disbanding their clubs. I think this is all going to come out
good for Okeechobee. I think they need to stand their ground and
not allow this, or the next thing you know it will be OK to bring drugs
to school and smoke right on the school grounds. As far as the girl
that got written up for showing public affection, you're not allowed
to do that if you are boyfriend and girlfriend. A boy and girl aren't
allowed to show affection so why should two girls be allowed to kiss
each other?

LAWSUIT: I just read the headline in the paper that the ACLU is
going to bring a lawsuit against Okeechobee schools. Okeechobee,
go to the lawsuit, stand up and tell them that if a pervert isn't allowed
in the schools neither is the gay club. We the taxpayers say so. They
say that if any extracurricular groups meet they are also allowed.
Well, prayer groups aren't allowed to meet so what's the difference.
If they are going to force something that is against our religion and
won't have prayer in our schools, then fight fire with fire. Stand up
and carry on and beat these people. They need to be beat, once and
for all. They had better realize they had better not mess with Okee-
chobee.

GAYS: I am calling in reference to the issue about the gay stu-
dents. First of all, I don't even believe that's a decision that children
that age should be able to make. I think what our problem is that
being gay these days is accepted by society and that's where the
problem arises. I think for a lot of teenagers it is a form of rebellion. I
think the majority of girls that are bisexual are that way because they
know what the majority of guys think about it. Personally I see it all as
the way people are but it doesn't look to me to be any different than a
form of perversion, because if you have two guys who are best
friends you can already talk to each other about anything. Why do
you have to take it to that extra step and be sexual knowing that it's
not right. I don't know if we are really, really close to the end but I
think we might be somewhere near it. I am only 28 years old, but I
believe that it's part of society deteriorating. We've already taken God
out of school so what protection is left? Satan is going to work his
way right in there.

TEACH THEM: This in regard to people wanting the club promot-
ing tolerance for gays. These children should know that homosexual-..
ity is not of God. It is a trick by Satan to try to keep these kids out of
the will that God has for them. He confuses their minds at this young
age, and makes them believe something that is not true. Parents,
educate your children at home about this stuff. Teach them what is
right and what is wrong. Teach them that God knows what is best for
them, and in all his ways has their best interest in mind. Teach them
early in life that homosexuality is not from God. Teach them that God
is our creator, and that he loves them. Lastly, if you want to get them
to listen, and change, do it with love. Speak to them with kindness
and don't judge them judge their behavior. Christ wants us to cor-
rect our children with love.

BACKLASH: The reason the clubs like to meet at schqpl isthat it is
convenient. The kids are already there, Th6ioseY ri don't ha. e then
own cars might not be able to go to a meeting some here~ise. With
so little for the kids to do in this town, I think tire school should \\ el
come these clubs of all types. If they ban all of the academic clubs to
deny the Gay Straight Alliance meeting space, that will cause a back-
lash of resentment and probably make things worse.

APPLAUD: I applaud Dr Cooper and the school board for trying to
keep sex and its innuendos out of the school system-- especially at
the high school where there are so many problems already. This
county has such a high rate of teen pregnancy that they shouldn't be
encouraged to do anything else. I agree that the kids shouldn't be,
picked on, but I think they shouldn't exploit their preferences either
as they are asking for trouble and attention. I know I would want my
grandchildren to have parents they would be proud of all of their life
and not have thrown in their face that when they were young they
were gay but now they're not. These kids need to think of their future
and the repercussions this could have on their future life. We all do
things in our younger years that we would give second thoughts to
now as a grown-up. I know that it will cause more problems than
solve them in school. Maybe Dr Cooper should take a poll with all the
students in the high school and see what they say. From what I hear
they would be against it.

More than a new name at PGA Golf Club


The PGA of America recently
announced that they have
renamed two of the three golf
courses at the PGA Golf Club at
PGA Village in Port Saint. Lucie.
The North Course has been
renamed the Ryder Course after
Samuel Ryder the founder of the
Ryder Cup. The South Course has
been renamed the Wanamaker
Course after Rodman Wanamaker
the department store magnate
who inspired the birth of The PGA
of America.
SWorld-renowned golf course
architect Tom Fazio originally
designed the Ryder and the Wana-
maker Courses at PGA Golf Club.
The courses have also received
major renovations overseen by
Fazio.
The Ryder Course is rich in
pine trees, rolling hills and chal-
lenging water hazards, giving it a
Carolina-feel. The Wanamaker
Course gets its Florida-feel from
wetlands, palm trees-and palmet-
tos that frame the vistas.
The. renovations on the Ryder
Course, which started in May,
included all 18 greens and 63
bunkers. The Ryder Course has
seen enhancement of the existing
drainage system, repair of all golf
cart paths.
The Wanamaker Course reno-
vations included resurfacing 18
greens with Champion Ultra-
Dwarf grass, the same strain of
turf used for the refurbishment of
the North Course greens. The
greens on holes No. 2 and 5 were

completely renovated, as were all
55 bunkers on the course. The
Wanamaker Course also saw


enhancements to the existing
drainage system, as well as, repair
of all golf cart paths and additional
landscaping to further enhance
the vistas.
The third course at PGA Golf
Club, the Dye Course designed by
Pete Dye, is scheduled for renova-
tions in 2007. Renovations will
include resurfacing of all 18
greens. The drainage and land-
scaping of the first tee area will be
renovated.
When I recently played the
Ryder course, it still had the same
feel as when I first played it to
write about its opening back in the
summer of 1998. The refurbished


bunkers were in fine shape, but I
recommend staying away from
them. At least if you want to.go
low!
The new greens still had plenty
of undulation, rolling fast and true.
Over the years, many homes have

been added alongside the course,
but they are unobtrusive. It is still a
beautiful place to spend a day.
The PGA Golf Club represents
the closest feel to a private course


of any public facility you will play.
A true bargain! I recommend you
take the trip east to the coast and
see what they have done. For tee

SWMD approves $1.3

million to clear spillway


To support restoration efforts
aimed at increasing water flow
into Everglades National Park,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has authorized $1.3
million for dredging and vegeta-
tion removal in the S-12D flow-
way located along Tamiami Trail
at the Park's northern border. A
spillway structure there is a key
site where water flows from
Water Conservation Area 3A into
the national park, hydrating the
protected wetlands. Over time,
sediment build-up and exotic
vegetation growth have reduced
water flow through the structure
by more than 50 per cent.
"Flow-way maintenance is
not a showy part of Everglades
restoration," said George Home,
Deputy Executive Director of
Operations & Maintenance, "but
it is a vital stepping stone toward
restoration. This much-needed
project will enhance water flow
into the Park. It is also critical for
alleviating high water in conser-
vation Area 3, which causes
damage to the native tree
islands."
American Earth Movers, Inc.,
one of six bidders, was awarded
the contract for the work, which
will occur over the next six
months. Dredging and vegeta-
tion removal will take place in
the S-12D upstream inflow chan-
nel and in the distribution canal
downstream of the spillway. The
estimated volume of sediment to
be removed at the site is 25,000
cubic yards, a volume equivalent
to more than 5 million gallons.
Additionally, the flow-way banks
will be re-graded and planted
with grass. Portable barriers will
be used to control turbidity in
the water while the work takes
place.
Water Conservation Area 3
(WCA-3), divided into sections
3A and 3B, is the largest of three
conservation areas that com-
prise much of the protected land
north of Everglades National
Park. Located in western
Broward and Miami-Dade coun-
ties, WCA-3 covers more than
2,300 acres. Along its eastern
border, a narrow, 11-mile tract of
wetlands is being modified to

prevent undesirable water seep-
age out of the conservation area.
Known as the 3A/3B Seepage
Management Area, it is one of
several Water Preserve Area
projects in the District's Acceler8
effort.
Announced by Governor Jeb
Bush in October 2004, Acceler8
is stepping up the pace of fund-
ing, design and construction to
complete eight Everglades
restoration projects over seven
years. At substantial savings to
taxpayers, the projects will
restore 100,000 acres of wet-
lands, expand water treatment
areas by close to 29,000 acres
and provide 428,000 acre-feet of
additional water storage for
Everglades restoration a decade
ahead of schedule.
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
systems and water supply. A key
initiative is cleanup and restora-
tion of the Everglades.
