"This residential mixed use
category will allow flexibility for
the project," said City planner Jim

racism that she said still exists
"Dr. King focused on brother-

is currently zoned residential sin-

the zoning to be changed to
heavy commercial.
This property is to be used
with the surrounding property
also owned by Mr. Goodbread to
bring a chain restaurant to make
the best use of this prime property
across from Wal-Mart.
But probably the most con-
tentious item on the agenda will
be the Royal Professional Builders
housing development on proper-
ty owned by Frank Altobello.
Royal Professional Builders is a
division of Royal Concrete Con-
cepts, which is planning to open a
plant in Okeechobee County. The
company already has a plant in
operation in West Palm Beach.
The housing development is
proposed to contain three tracts
of land totaling approximately 30
acres of land where an estimated
168 units will be developed with a
mix of single family residential
homes and multi-family residen-
tial townhouses located between

marched in the parade and later
read excerpts from Dr. King's
The Yearling Middle School

After the ceremony in the

marched to the Douglas Brown

ous action from the Nov. 7, 2006,
meeting that changed the public
hearing date for the Royal Profes-
sional Builders development from
Dec. 6,2006, to Feb. 6,2007.
This initial extension was given
to allow for sufficient time for the
Technical Review Committee
(TRC) Meeting, as required by
code, to approve the conceptual
site plan.
This is required for planned
unit developments. Royal Profes-
sional Builders will have to meet
the deadline for the Feb. 28, TRC

The applicant missed the dead-
line for the January TRC meeting.
Because this development has

Seminole begins '07 with renewed energy and focus

Happy New Year! We at Semi-
nole Elementary School are
excited to begin the year with
renewed energy and focus. The
students, their teachers, and the
administration are dedicated
and committed to striving for
excellence as we
work hard aca-
demically and
behaviorally to
achieve suc-
In an effort to
ensure all students have an
opportunity to work to their full
potential, we are implementing
a positive behavioral plan to help
students earn incentives and
rewards for demonstrating aca-
demic success and positive
Students who complete quali-

ty classroom work, turn home-
work in on time, and follow
classroom behavioral plans will
be rewarded with a Seminole
Successful Student coupon.
These coupons will be placed in
a basket and drawn throughout
the remainder of the school year
for rewards such as: watching a
movie while enjoying popcorn,
having a pizza party with the
principal, having an extended
recess, and other such activities.
All of our teachers work hard
to ensure your child's instruc-
tional time is protected by deter-
ring classroom misbehavior that
interferes with their ability to
teach. Since negative behavior is
directly linked to academic per-
formance, we are making a col-
laborative effort to ensure stu-
dents are following all school

rules and policies. Please help
us at home by stressing the
importance of applying effort
when completing classroom
work, homework assignments,
and following rules. By working
together, we can continue meet-
ing our educational and behav-
ioral goals.
Thank you for taking an active
role in your child's education.
Mrs. Bolan's class has been
hard at work studying weather.
We will be conducting an exper-
iment to measure different
water temperatures and record-
ing the results. Next week they
will be starting a new program
where the students will be tak-
ing home books and tapes to

enjoy. The books and tapes help
the students hear and read along
with a variety of children's litera-
ture. These books will also
count toward the "Pizza Hut
Book-It" program.
Mrs. Jordan's class has
enjoyed observing the weather.
Each day they observe the
weather and record it on their
recording sheets. Nathan told his
mother he does not need the
weather on the TV because he
now can go outside to observe it
himself. The class read "Snow-
ball" by Lois Elhert. Then they
made shaving cream snowmen
using various items from home
just like in the book. The stu-
dents are also learning the states
and capitals from the many post-
cards Ms. Raulerson has sent
them. She has traveled from New
York to Oregon, Colorado, Cali-
-fornia, and many other states.
The postcards have helped us
learn about different places in
the United States.
For Fun Day the kindergarten
students learned about weather.
In Ms. Seney's class and in Ms.
Shook's class the students make
snowflakes. In Ms. Buehrly's
class they made rainbows. In
Mrs. Peterson's class the students
read about winter and made
marshmallow snowmen. In Mrs.
Bolan's class the students made
a bracelet showing the weather
in each of the seasons. In Mrs.
Johnson's class the students read
and discussed a book about
weather. In Mrs. Jordan's class
the students learned a song
about different kinds of weather
and drew symbols to represent
the weather. The students
learned a lot about weather and
had a wonderful time in each of
the classrooms.
First grade
Students in Mrs. O'Bannon's
class are learning long vowel
rules and are practicing using
them to read new words. This
month, they are reading books

by Dr. Seuss. One of their favorite
books is "One Fish, Two Fish".
They have enjoyed learning
about the winter season and all
the fun things that you can do in
the snow. They wrote their own
stories about the day it snowed
in Okeechobee and drew won-
derful looking snowmen and
snow pictures. Congratulations
to the first Student of the Week
for the new year, Gage Leach.
In Mrs. Yeilding's first grade
class the students are learning
about solid geometric shapes.
They used solid figures to deter-

mine which ones could stack,
roll, and slide. The Star Student
of this class is Karla Chavez, who
is an excellent student. Karla
loves to read and write, and
always does her best in her work.
Great job, Karla!
Miss Dominick's students are
learning about faces and ver-
tices. Vertex, vertices, and face
are a few of the new terms we
are studying. We will be learning
about Martin Luther King, Jr. next
week. Congratulations to Jaclynn
Cowles for earning student of the

There is a story told from a children's
hospital in South America where every
afternoon a child's voice would ring out
in concert. His songs could be heard
throughout the corridors of the large
Weeks passed, his singing improved -
months went by and the singing began
to take on a professional quality that
was rarely found. By the end of the year
all the people in the hospital found
themselves waiting for the boy to sing
at his usual hour.
Finally the boy left the hospital, and
eventually went on to become a great
and beloved concert singer. People
throughout his country flocked to hear
him sing.
The boy was a victim of polio, and the
doctors had recommended he sing to
strengthen his lungs. At first the child
was merely following orders then he
began to feel his songs... the people who
listened began to feel the magic of his
voice. They loved him so that they later
made him a national idol.
Thought To Remember: Look for the
bright side it is always there!

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
UPSET: I'm quite upset over the way I was treated yesterday. A
red pickup truck following me down U.S. 441 north of town fol-
lowed me for the longest while. I was driving 50-63 mph and he
could have passed me at any time but he chose to stay behind me.
All of a sudden he passed me and he gave me a signal, in other
words, pull over old lady you are going too slow. Well, the speed
limit is 60. I1 was in the right so why should he act that way? My hus-
band would never treat anybody that way if he was passing them.

IMMIGRANTS: I want to comment on the reader's proposal that
illegal immigrants be fined at least $10,000 each. I think that if they
each had $10,000 they wouldn't be coming across the border.

KIDS: I'm calling in response to the liquor sales and the skate-
boarders. They should sell liquor at the Agri-Civic Center. It doesn't
matter if they do, there's nothing going on anyway so what's the dif-
ference? As far as the skateboarders, taxpayers did not pay for the
skate park. The county donated the land and businesses donated
the money for the park. And they are not thugs that use that park.
They are good kids that live in our community. I'm so sick of the
hypocrites in this town. Their 12-year-old kids are pregnant and they
are drug addicts and scumbags and they swear that they go to
church and everything's better. I wish somebody would straighten
these people out for once.

PIT BULL: I have lived in Okeechobee all my life. Okeechobee is
an awesome city. But when you take something that doesn't belong
to you it's always going to come back on you. To the people who
stole my baby's blue pit bull, thank you very much for allowing us to
have it back.

LEGAL SYSTEM: This country's legal system is out of control. We
have parts of our society doing things just because they can do it, no
matter if their actions are right or wrong. Just because you can do
something doesn't mean you automatically should do something. I
am talking in particular about the ACLU and their suit against Okee-
chobee High School. The Equal Access Act of '84 originally intended
to defend religious groups is being manipulated to defend sexual
orientation. If the EAA can be applied in a broad sense to cover all
possibilities of the human mind then beware America. It is conceiv-
able that it can be argued to cover everything from foreign religions
and customs to even racism. Think about it. It could happen. Don't
say it can't be done because just take a look at the mess our country
is in now. Our country was founded on freedom freedoms that
are sensible, just and right. Some things just shouldn't be allowed.

Weevils in flour are not usually a health hazard

A reader was horrified to find
bugs in the pancake mix.
She bought the box of pancake
mix on sale, and almost forgotten
about it when she found it in her
pantry. It was still sealed, and had
not passed the expiration date, so
she figured it was still good. But
when she started mixing up a
batch of pancakes, she saw
brown spots in the mix. A little
more careful inspection revealed
they were weevils.
This story is not unusual. Wee-
vils may show up on corn meal,
cereal, rice, pasta, flour or any food
product containing flour or rice.
Weevils are a type of beetle.
They normally live in fields and
feed on grain plants such as rice
and wheat. When the crop is har-
vested, some of these insects are

accidentally collected with the
grain. While harvesters and
processors try to remove all of
the insects and insect eggs from
the grain, some slip through.
Insect eggs are the most com-
mon form of contamination,
since they may be difficult to
detect. These eggs may not hatch
until long after the product is

bagged and sealed for sale.
Even if a product is free of
insects when it is originally pack-
aged, some insects might find their
way in along the way in a ware-
house or a storage area, or from an
infected bag of flour to other food
items in someone's pantry.
Following are some tips to
keep your pantry as insect-free as
Check food packages at the
store. Do not buy a package if it
appears to be damaged, or if the
expiration date has expired, or
could expire before you use the
product. Be wary of "buy one, get
one free" sales. Often the products
on sale have been on the shelf-- or
in the warehouse for a long time.
The older a bag of flour or rice is,
the greater the chance it might con-

tain weevils.
Don't buy more flour, rice,
cornmeal or pasta than you will
use in a week. The longer you have
a food package, the more likely
insects might hatch and reproduce
or find their way in.
Remember that cereal is a
grain product. Once you open a
box of cereal, and break the seal on
the plastic inside, transfer the con-
tents to an airtight container.
When you open a package, if
you are not going to use all of it
immediately, put the remainder in
an airtight container.
Store food in a cool, dry place.
Some foods may be refrigerated or
frozen for longer storage.
Routinely clean out your cabi-
nets and discard any foods that
have passed their expiration date.

Don't mix old food products
with new. For example, if the
flour in your canister is low, use it
all up and clean out the canister
before opening a new bag to fill
the canister.
Most weevils are not really a
health hazard. If you ate something
from a package before noticing the
bugs, you probably won't get sick
from that. According to the USDA,
weevils don't carry disease.
Besides, the heat of cooking would
sterilize the food.
If you're squeamish about
bugs, consider this pesticides
used to kill insects could be more
dangerous to your health than
the bugs.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise plan, consult
your doctor. This is especially

m eImt hbel psm ramr tIrammI

- -do

- -~ -

important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that might otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."
