County will


hold hearing



on new edict


BOCC to hold public
hearing on sexual
offenders' ordinance
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
One of the first items on
today's agenda for the Okee-
chobee County Board of County
Commissioners will be a public
hearing on an ordinance regard-
ing sexual offenders.
Retired Judge William
Hendry will swear in newly-
elected commissioners Marvin
Wherrell and Noel Chandler
when the commissioners meet


at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 21, in
their chamber in the Okee-
chobee County Courthouse.
Following this, the board will
elect a chairman, set meeting
days, time and place and
appoint commissioners to vari-
ous boards and councils.
The commissioners will then
conduct the second of two
required public hearings on the
sexual offender ordinance.
At the conclusion of the hear-
ing, the board will have four
options.
One option would be to
adopt the ordinance as it is cur-
rently drafted.

Hearing
Continued From Page 1
Another option would be to
exclude the dispersion provision.
This provision prevents two or
more sexual offenders from living
in the same house unless they are
related by blood or marriage.
According to county attorney John
Cassels, this provision is the one
most likely to be challenged in
court.
Another option would be to add
playgrounds and bus stops to the
provision which prevents sexual
offenders from living with 2,500
feet of schools, parks and child
care facilities.
The fourth alternative would be


to decline to take action and direct
further hearings or modifications
to the proposed ordinance.
This ordinance came about at
the behest of residents of Dixie
Ranch Acres when they learned
that registered sexual offenders
were living in a rented home at
7272 N.W 81st Court. The home is
being rented by Matthew 25 Min-
istries which offers counseling and
other programs to help convicted
sexual offenders.
At one point there were three
offenders living in the neighbor-
hood where there are an estimated
16 youngsters. However, one of the
offenders, Robert Robedeau,
allegedly removed his GPS device
and fled the area on Friday, Oct. 13.
Robedeau, 25, was arrested
Wednesday, Oct. 25, at the Conti-


nental Inn Motel in Kissimmee.
In other action, the board is
expected to:
proclaim the month of
November to be National Hos-
pice/Palliative Care Month in Okee-
chobee County;
purchase 10 user licenses
from CRW Associates for planning
and development;
purchase a new telephone
system for the county annex;
lease additional office space
for county departments on N.W.
Sixth Street;
execute a grant agreement
with FEMA;
in connection with the above
item, to transfer $93,637 from the
Landfill Trust Reserve to road
maintenance for the county's por-
tion of the match;


receive a conceptual plan for
the courthouse park from Devin
Maxwell representing Okeechobee
Main Street;
discuss support of the Main
Street Mural and Visual Arts Pro-
gram;
recognize Benita Whalen of
South Florida Water Management
District to present checks for Alter-
nate Water Supply Grants; and,
convene an executive session
to discuss labor negations with the
International Union of Operating
Engineers and International Asso-
ciation of Firefighters.
At 2 p.m., the commissioners
are scheduled to conduct a work-
shop concerning impact fees for
highways.

Don't destroy your ideals! Don't
tear down your dreams!" These
are words of advice that we have
all heard throughout our lives.
They are still excellent bits of wis-
dom that could well be passed on
to our young people today. We
read of sit-ins, demonstrations,
walk-outs, and many other forms
of revolt and rebellion. "We fight
for our ideals," they say. It is a
noble thing to have ideals. But, if
in our haste to obtain our own
rights, we overlap and take away
the rights of others, we can easily
be tearing 'down, rather than
building up. We all have dreams
and ideals, and they were not eas-
ily obtained. Usually when we
destroy these ideals and dreams,
we end up breaking our own
hearts. Thought To Remember:
Only your attitude builds your
dreams and ideals. Only you can
destroy them.

4 OPINION The Okeechobee News, Tuesday, November21, 2006


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.com/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
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.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.
ROADS: I would like to know if the Glades County commissioners are
going to stop these on the loop that have these fifth wheels running back
and forth. They say they are not running a business out of their home but
they have all this heavy equipment. Our road was just paved and it will
not last five years the way they run it. I'd like to find out if the county com-
mission will do anything about it. (Editor's Note: Since we don't cover
Glades County issues such as this, we suggest you call the Glades County
Board of County Commissioners at (863) 946-6002.)

POINTS: This is reference to Saturday, Nov. 8, Speak Out column.
There were many good points that were brought up by each individual
that called in. However, I too have some points that I would like to bring
out. I do agree that each individual has rights and no one deserves any
sort of harassment. However, I also agree with the person who said that
all people get harassed at some point in their lives. I disagree in part with
the person who said that the New Testament is all about tolerance and
forgiveness. Nowhere is there any tolerance for sin in the Bible. Forgive-
ness is what Jesus gave to those who confessed and repented for their
sins. I don't see that happening here. I'm not going to agree to tolerance
of any person's sins, not even my own. The Bible clearly states that we
are born with free will and it is our individual choice to accept or deny
Christ. As Christians, we are to teach. We are not to force, for then it is not
genuine love. Upon their last breath, each person will see the glory of our
awesome God. Whether they remain with God or go to hell will be decid-
ed by God and not by any man.

NO BENEFIT: This is in response to the letter to the editor by Mr. Gene
Gorham. I'd like to respond to your comment "shame on you" to the
people who didn't vote because we have the right to vote in this country
and our soldiers have died for that right. We also have a right not to vote
in this country, sir. If we feel that neither party is going to benefit this
country, we have a right not to vote, too. So I say shame on you for violat-
ing my right not to vote by saying we should have to vote. We shouldn't.
We don't have to do anything in this country but die and pay taxes and
that's it. But if I don't agree with either side then I'm just not going to vote
and that's that.

CHOICES: It would seem that the predominant motive behind most
of the controversy in town over the gay club at the high school is toler-
ance. That makes me happy. We should all be more tolerant. That is
something I work on personally every day. I think how sad and tragic it
must be to feel like an alien in your own body, to only be attracted to
members of the same sex or to suffer the confusion of being attracted to
both sexes. You want to be free to practice the lifestyle you choose, but is
it your right? Most times, someone's wrongs trample all over others'
rights. If your lifestyle causes you or someone else pain, it is not your right
to continue that behavior. It is your responsibility to examine that behav-
ior and correct it. Homosexuality is nothing new. It's the same old wrong
it's always been. The same God that created you has condemned all
immoral behaviors, and there will be an eternal consequence for those
selfish behaviors. Choose life not rebellion, not hatred, not intolerance.
Choose the God who knows everything about you and loves you any-
way. He is waiting foryou.

THE BOSS: The school and the school board have the right to permit
or forbid anything that goes on in the school. They are the boss in this
issue. Where does it say that the school board or any of its members have
to bow down to students?

INSIGHT: I had a really insightful conversation with some kids that
attend the high school. All these kids are on various committees and out-
:ii hiding students. They seem to be very fair and honest and understand
the nature of all sides. They were all in agreement that the one individual
who wants this club is doing it for attention. I was also told that there are
not 60 members who want to be in this club the actual number is
around 14. They explained to me that the principal has done everything
in her power to meet the students halfway and to try and resolve this in a
positive manner. The students that I spoke with are very much in favor of
a resolution and are students that are known for trying to help resolve
issues within the school.

CHARITY: As we quickly approach this Holiday Season, please
remember to find room in your heart to consider those less fortunate
than us and give to a charity of your choice to brighten someone's day.
Remember in life to pay it forward.

HELP: I raised all my kids to give back. Three of my sons are in the
service. My young daughter helps in the community. We always pur-
chase presents to give to organizations for Christmas. After the holidays,
when the kids were younger, I had them go through all their clothes and
toys that they no longer use and give to the shelter for battered women so
that in this trying time the kids would have some toys to play with during
their stay. To this day, all of my kids will do anything to help any of their
friends or strangers who need help.

Holidays don't have to bring weight gain


In the United States, the win-
ter holiday celebrations are all
about food. Many people find it
difficult to avoid weight gain dur-
ing the holidays.
Some tips to help maintain a
-healthy weight despite the lure of
rich holiday treats:
Don't starve yourself. Skip-
ping meals does not help you
lose weight or prevent weight
gain. If you skip a meal, your
metabolism slows down. This is
a natural reaction, as your body
is conserving fuel. Skipping

meals also makes it more likely
that your body will store as much
fat as possible when you eat -


stocking up on fuel for the
'famine" times. To keep your
metabolism running smoothly,
eat small, healthy meals and
snacks throughout the day.
Make the time to exercise.
With so much to do to prepare
for holiday festivities, many peo-
ple skip their normal exercise
routine. Exercise is important
year round. *
Choose healthy options.
You can enjoy a holiday meal
without piling on the calories, if
you are selective about your

choices. You don't have to eat
everything that is served. Sliced
turkey and a plate piled with sal-
ads and vegetables can be a low-
calorie, healthy and satisfying
meal.
Indulge a little. Take a small
serving of your favorites, even if
they are "forbidden foods" the
rest of the year. This can help
you avoid binges later.
Drink water. Sometimes
when you think you are hungry,
you are actually thirsty. Before
you eat anything, drink a glass of
water. This will help you stay full
and eat less. The water also helps
flush toxins out of your system
and keeps your tissues hydrated.
Just because the weather has
turned cooler does not mean you
can stop drinking water.
At a party, don't stand near
the buffet. Take a small portion
and your plate and distance your
self from the food so you won't
be tempted to keep snacking.

The event begins on Friday Nov. 24, at 10 a.m. They still found time to have a yard sale
to benefit patient care. The hard-working volunteers are: Grace Williams, Viola Brandel,
Janice Daniels, Nila McCormick, and Freda Hirst.


We pledge to operate our newspaper as a public trust.


We believe journalists are nothing more than guardians of every citi-
zen's right to a free press. We have no authority to compromise, bar-
gain away or dishonor the principles underlying the First
Amendment.


We don't play loose with the facts. We give notice to your opinions,
not ours. We encourage vigorous discussion of public issues, but try
to keep everybody's comments within the bounds of fair play.


How are we doing?


Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.
