Adults-only business denied


City planners
nix request for
special exception

By Chauna Agular
Okeechobee News
The City Planning Board/Board
of Adjustment and Appeals meet-
ing on Thursday, Jan. 18, was
packed beyond maximum occu-
pancy for the issue concerning a
proposed adult entertainment


establishment.
City police had to request that
City Clerk Lane Gamiotea have citi-
zens who were not there to sup-
port or oppose that issue to either
wait either downstairs in City Hall
or in the waiting room of the city
administrator's office in order to
remain within the posted occu-
pancy level.
Applicant Steven Game, on
behalf of property owner Charles
Farmer, applied for a special
exception within property in an


industrial zone located at 508 N.E.
Ninth St., near the entrance of the
City Commerce Center.
A legal issue involved with the
property involved compliance with
the land development codes dis-
tance requirements. Those
requirements state than an adult
entertainment establishment can-
not be permitted to open, operate,
or be enlarged so as to come with-
in: 1,000 feet of a permitted, pre-
existing adult entertainment estab-
lishment; 1,000 feet of a

students sang, danced,
drummed, told jokes and
shook it up for an entertain-
ment-packed evening at OHS
on Thursday, Jan. 18.
If the audience reaction is
any indication, the talent show
was a rousing success.
First place honors went to
the OHS Drumline, who
played drums as well as
brooms and trash cans. Their
cadence fascinated, aston-
ished and energized the audi-
ence.
Skylar Clark's modern
dance included leaps and
gymnastic, moves with a twist.
She performed the first half of
the dance blindfolded, and
received second place honors.
Third place went to the gui-
tar accompanied harmonies
of Cassie Chesley and Candice
Morris. For their country song
performance, they brought
along bales of hay for seating
and atmosphere.
While only three prizes
were given, all of the perform-
ers were winners, enjoying the
appreciative applause from
the audience.
A rock band made up of
Bryce Emley, Justin Engler,
. Adam Graves, Todd Holt and


Skylar Clark performed a modern dance that impressed
the audience and the judges, earning her second place in
the talent show.


Amber Wheeler got opened
the show and got things off to
a rousing start. Some band
members took the "mock
rock" event seriously and
wore wigs as part of the "rock
star" costume.
A stepping routine by Clo-
tious Harris, Alana Jhanson
and Miesha Henderson kept
the beat going and drew
cheers from the audience.
Individual singers Rachel
Muros, Megan Marker, Tiffany
Etchison, Kayla Williams and
Meghan Conroy each showed
their individual style and tal-
ent.
Cali Miller and Amber
Wheeler teamed up for a duet,
accompanied by guitar.
* Especially thrilling for some
of the female members of the
audience was the perform-
ance by Quirino Rubio, who


played the piano and sang an
original love song.
Male members of the audi-
ence went wild for a belly
dance performance by Diare-
ny Medina.
And everyone's hands were
clapping for the lively song
and dance performed by Mari-
alzbeth Gonzalez.
Masters of Ceremony Car-
lyn Schaefer and Maurisa Sim-
mons introduced the perform-
ers and told jokes while the
stage was being set.
At the end of the more than
two hours of entertainment,
the performers gathered on
the stage to await their results.
While the judges made some
hard decisions, some of the
performers broke the tension
by grabbing the microphone

This special exception is only
allowed if all of these requirements


are met. The distance in question
with the proposed business was
the residential zoning stipulation.
While many people of the com-
munity spoke in opposition to this
establishment, city attorney John
Cook's statement is what led the
board to their only legal conclu-
sion.

If approved there could have
been a shared use property for
parking purposes in order to
accommodate parking such as
employee parking -or-for over-

Bill Brisson attended the Jan.
18 meeting in the place of Mr.

denial of the rezoning on the
basis of the inconsistency with

there was no zoning in Okee-
chobee prior to 1978. This book
started that process and was in
effect until the land development
regulations (LDR) were adopted (in
1982 and amended in subsequent
years, the most recent 2003)."
He went on to say, "... as our
planner has said in the holding zon-
ing district permitted principal uses,
which are ones that qualify without
an exception, are agricultural uses,
structures, certain residential uses,
schools, parks, playgrounds and
single family dwellings with a mini-
mum lot requirement of two acres.
"The current LDR's prohibit this
type of establishment within 500
feet of an area zoned for residential
use. It does not say residential zon-
ing, it says an area zoned for resi-
dential uses. Unfortunately, the
applicant and I earlier on in this
process looked at property zoned
residential single family (RSFI or
RSF2)," he added.
Mr. Cook agreed with the plan-
ner at the present time that, "when
our code says within 500 feet of an
area zoned for residential uses.
Clearly in the orange zoning book,
holding category is a zoning cate-
gory that allows single family
dwellings. The planner's recom-
mendation that this project does
not qualify for a special exception
appears to be legally correct."
Based on the legal issue that
completely makes the special
exception out of the question,
board member Dawn Hoover
made a motion to deny the special
exception application based on the
violation of section 90-343, subsec-
tion B5.
The motion was passed unani-
mously by the board.
This decision, however, was
after many citizens spoke on the
subject.
"We may as well just say 'There
goes the neighborhood.' I am
against this on several grounds,"
said Reverend Larry Kilgore, a pas-
tor at the Church of God. "These


Okeechobee News/Chauna Agullar
Proposed business owner Steven Game spoke before the
City Planning Board/Board of Adjustments and Appeals
Thursday, Jan. 18, as well as a packed chamber concerning
his proposed business of an adult entertainment establish-
ment stating that "... the only other location will be in the
mainstream of town."


places are crime magnets... it is in
the middle of a residential area and
a magnet for sexual predators.
Everyday young people from Dou-
glas Park travel this road to go to
school. This is not a very good way
to protect our children."
Detective Lieutenant John Rho-
den of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO), who was
born and raised in Okeechobee,
has been with the OCSO for over 23
years. He spoke about another
adult entertainment business that
was located on U.S. 441 S.
"We, (the OCSO) got to do
undercover work in there. They
(business owners) bring these girls
in here that have a low self esteem
because when they graduated they
sure didn't say 'I want to be a pole
dancer,'" he said.
He went on to say, "In these


places, the girls are either drunk or
high before they get there or they
are drunk or high before they leave.
(There is) not only the stuff that
goes on in the club, but the back
and after hours, too. They take
these fellows to motels or they go
outside in cars. Trust me; I know
what I'm talking about because
when we raided these places, I
think there was only one girl that
did not get arrested.
"Half the people who worked
there got arrested for drugs. We
don't have enough manpower to
work the drugs we have now -
there is not enough money in the
county to pay for all the overtime.
The drug problems are real," he
added.
William Mason, a neighboring
property owner to the proposed
site stated that in talks with Mr.


Game "... the business is supposed
to be open until 4 a.m., hoping to
catch the bar traffic when they
close at 2 a.m."
Mr. Game said drinking alco-
holic beverages inside the business
would not be allowed.
"There is only one other loca-
tion that would more than allow
this organization to open this busi-
ness. This second location would
put it in the mainstream it would
be seen on U.S. 441 with school
buses going down the road all day
long," Mr. Game told the board. "If
you turn this location down, the
only other possible place is right in
front of you (where) you are going
to see its lights, you are going to see
its traffic, and you are going to see
its cars."
Mr. Game went on to say that
there is a state law that allows this
business.
"Violating that state law would
mean that this board shouldn't
even be here, they have to follow by
the book. Everyone on this board
agrees with you, I believe in my
heart, but they have to follow the
law," he added.
"The issues of the citizens for
change would be better for the City
Council and County Commission-
ers. To abide by the LDR's is the
planning board's job and our only
job," stated board chairman Bill
Ledferd. "There could be a slot in
the city or county that would meet
the qualified requirements and
there is nothing really anybody can
do. The LDR's are the laws of the
city, and the county has theirs as
well. We are just a board of people
who are here to go by those
books."
Citizens then went on to ask
how to get something like this
changed and they were directed to
go to the council, commission and
state Legislature.
While Mr. Game stated that
there was a second location he
would not give any specific infor-
mation as to its exact location.

Five arrested after


search of apartment


Five people were arrested on
drug charges after members of
the Okeechobee Narcotics Task
Force executed a search warrant
on a N.E. 13th Avenue apart-
ment.
The task force, along with
members of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
Special Response Team, execut-
ed the warrant Thursday, Jan. 18.
And according to an OCSO press
release, 9.7 grams of suspected
crack cocaine, 0.2 grams of sus-
pected powder cocaine and 1
gram of suspected marijuana
was found in the apartment.
Arrested in the apartment,
then later booked into the Okee-
chobee County Jail were Milton
Oscar Ford, Fred Prentiss McKin-
non, Karen Lyn Chavis, Casey
Torror Johnson and Kelly Marie
Aaron.
Ford, 24, N.E. 14th Ave., was
charged with possession of
cocaine. His bond was set at
$10,000.
McKinnon, 38, N.E. 13th Ave.,
was charged with possession of
cocaine, possession of cocaine
with intent to sell and possession

Board

Continued From Page 1
The property is located within a
single family future land use catego-
ry where the city had previously dis-
cussed preserving the residential
neighborhood beyond Southwest
Second Avenue.
The change from single family
to commercial would create an
incompatible use with the sur-
rounding neighborhood and
would not be in compliance with
the standards set forth in the com-
prehensive plan, said Mr. Brisson.
The board also considered
another small comprehensive plan
map amendment from property
owners Glenda Bellamy and Renee
Ellerbee for property located at 203
S.W. Fourth St., behind BMJ Tow-
ing.
This .54-acre of land is currently
zoned residential single family and
is occupied by a one story single
family residence. The owners are
requesting the use change in order
to be able to utilize the existing
structure as a commercial office for
Big Lake Title due to the required
relocation of their business.
"She is aware that she will have
to bring the residential home up to
commercial codes," said Mrs. Eller-
bee.
The relocation is because of the
future development of their current
site that is owned by George Good-
bread that is proposed for heavy
commercial for the purpose of put-
ting in a chain restaurant.
According to Mr. LaRue's staff
report: "The current corridor of
land designated as commercial
future land use in this area does not
cross Southwest Second Avenue
south of Southwest Fourth Street."
It went on to say that this change
would "present inconsistency with
the future land use element, incom-
patibility with the adjacent proper-
ties and if approved would be set-
ting a precedent in an area of the
city which is best suited as a resi-
dential neighborhood. Southwest
Second Avenue currently acts as a
buffer from the existing commer-
cial uses to the east."
According to Mr. LaRue, this
application is also not in compli-
ance with the standards set forth in
the Comprehensive Plan.
The property is also being con-
sidered for rezoning from single
family residential to commercial.
Again, Mr. LaRue recommend-
ed denial based on the inconsisten-
cy with the comprehensive plan
that would create an incompatibili-
ty with the surrounding neighbor-
hood.
"The existing future land use
category, the existing zoning and
the existing use are all more com-
patible with the immediate sur-
rounding area," stated Mr. LaRue in
his report.
All existing use, zoning and
future land use are currently single
family residential.
While the city planner request-
ed denial, the board viewed a map
drawn up by Mr. Brisson which
showed the surrounding areas. The
block in question is the only block
left that is zoned residential.
With this information, the board
chose to recommend that the City
Council change the future land use
to light commercial rather than
heavy commercial as requested,


and to rezone it to light commercial
as well.
Board member Dawn Hoover
voted against the recommenda-
tion.
This zoning category will
accommodate the occupant's busi-
ness.
The board also approved a
rezoning application from property
owner William Mason requesting
the zoning designation to be
changed fromt holding to residential
single family for property located at
the west entrance of the City Com-
merce Center.
The property consists of just
over 13 acres that currently has a
future land use of residential single
family but a zoning of holding,
which is no longer in the updated
land development regulations
(LDR).
Mr. Mason requested the zone
change to build a single family resi-
dence on the property.
The planning board heard from
City Clerk Lane Gamiotea concern-
ing changes to the Oct. 19, 2006,
minutes stating that board member
Devin Maxwell was not a voting
member until the rezoning portion
of the application by Royal Profes-
sional Builders, on behalf of proper-
ty owner Frank Altobello, which
was to change the zoning from
holding to residential multi-family
on property located between
Southwest Sixth and Second Streets
as an alternate had been put in his
place by the chairman.
According to Mrs. Gamiotea,
"only the chairman Bill Ledferd can
place an alternate in a voting mem-
ber's position and only the chair-
man can change them back."
According to previous records,
Mr. Maxwell had arrived at the
meeting late at 6:07 p.m. While he
was present during some of the
items, until the discussion was held
to place him back in the voting
position the previous action by
Chairmen Ledferd prevailed, which
placed Alternate O'Connor in his
position.
Mrs. Gamiotea went on to say
that, "... clarification was made
prior to the vote on the zoning issue
and board member Maxwell was
now a voting member, but he
remained silent during the vote.
Due to the method in which this
board casts votes, a silent vote is a
yea vote. The motion to recom-
mend the rezoning of the said prop-
erty remains the same as the major-
ity of votes were cast and the
motion was carried."
In other business, city planners:
approved a recommendation
to the City Council concerning a
comprehensive rewrite of the bill-
board policy, Code 90-561.
recommended that the City
Council create a special exception
to the sexual predator ordinance to
provide a special exception for the
allowance of an institution, rehabil-
itation facility, half-way house,
camp, retreat or other similar lodg-
ing offered as a condition of an
organized course of treatment of
sexual offenders that may be per-
mitted within a zoning district des-
ignated for that purpose within a
heavy commercial or industrial
zoning district.

Congratulations, OMS stu-

Top milers
for the week
Congratulations also to the


top mile runners for the past
week. From the eighth grade:
Javier Gomez and Jaisa Sinclair.
Students in the seventh grade
are Dennis Cummings and
Maranda Serrano. Sixth grade
top milers are Anthony Tagle
and Maddison Hanner. Great
job!
Math
For the next few weeks, our
academic focus in math will be
from the Algebraic Thinking
strand. We will focus on describ-
ing, representing, interpreting,
and solving real world problems
involving patterns, relation-
ships, functions, tables, graphs,
equations, and inequalities
(MAD 1.3.1, MAD 1.3.2, MAD
2.3.1). Parents, if you have infor-
mation that can be organized
and put into a table and/or
graph (including Venn dia-
grams), that would be a great
way to reinforce these concepts
and show applications in the
real world. Have the students
look for patterns and state rela-
tionships verb ally, including
cause and effect.
Reading
The school wide focus in
reading for this week will be on
benchmark LA.A.1.3.2 Words


and Phrases. Parents can rein-
force the focus at home through
asking your middle schoolers
questions about their reading.
Listed below are a few ques-
tions to get you started:
What information or
knowledge did you already have
that helped you to understand
this book better?
Are there any particular
words that create the atmos-
phere in the story?
What special words does
the author use to help you see,
hear, smell, and taste things in
the story?
How has the author's lan-
guage appealed to you?
How does the part that you
read today fit together with the
parts you read earlier?

We read a bit of good, sound
logic the other day. Someone
had simply written these words,
"A smooth sea never makes a
skillful mariner."
There is much truth in this
statement. A sailor becomes
skilled only as he guides his
ship through raging seas and
stormy voyages. Anyone can
plot a course through a calm,
but only the best can face a
storm, weather it and bring the
ship safely to harbor.
It is through the storms of
experience that the mariner
becomes skillful. Isn't that true
with life? The hard and diffi-
cult days tend to make each of
us a better person, better fitted
for life.
Everyone's life will be
filled with many calm voyages,
but there are sure to be storms
and gales because they are a
part of life too.
Thought to remember: Life
is a sea -- both calm and stormy.

ALCOHOL SALES: I'm not sure what county official the editor
checked with about alcohol being served at the Agri-Civic Center
but it was obviously the wrong one. Alcohol was served New Year's
Eve at the concert there and they are intending to serve it at the
county fair where all our children can see the hoodlums when they
get drunk.

Editor's Note: County code makes a distinction between hard
liquor, beer and wine. The sale of hard liquor at the Agri-Civic Cen-
ter is prohibited. However, the sale of beer and/or wine is allowed
as long as those sales conform to county protocols established by
the Okeechobee County Board of County Commissioners. Those
protocols state that beer/wine can only be sold at the facility by the
county, or by someone who has contracted with the county to han-
dle those sales. Beer and wine was sold at the recent New Year's
Eve concert by a local restaurant that had contracted with the
county to do so. Thus, those sales conform to the established pro-
tocols,

AMAZED: I'm amazed there are so many recent model cars,
trucks and SUVs that are not equipped with turn signals.

RENTORS: This is in reference to the rent comment in the
Wednesday paper. I am a renter and I keep this place up as if it was
my own. I have a complaint about my rent being too high, because
it is. The reason why rent is so high is because people went crazy
when the market had dropped. They brought up four and six lots at
a time, and purchased homes not to live in, but to rent them out.
But now they can't afford these homes. That's why the foreclosure
list down at the county got to be so long. I know my landlord is get-
ting over on me, as well as other landlords are getting over on their
tenants. The reason I and most other renters can't afford to buy our
own homes is mostly because of people who caused the cost of liv-
ing to peak in a matter of seconds and Okeechobee's economy
couldn't catch up with it. I, just like other people who make an hon-
est living, want a home and simply can't afford it. So the next best
thing is to rent, in order to keep a roof over our family's head. And
for the record, I don't drink or smoke, nor am I lazy.

INCONVENIENT: I'm calling in regard to the trains and the rail-
road tracks on U.S. 441. The train has been coming at very incon-
venient times here lately like 8 a.m., noon, 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. when
people are going to work, going to lunch, kids are getting out of
school and when they're getting out of work. I think they should
find a better and more convenient time to run the train.

SKATEPARK: I for one am glad that the county closed the skate
park! Now before you get all up in arms with me, I too am a moth-
er. However, if you as parents would make your children respect
the adults then our children might have other things to do.

TEACHING: I was wondering why at Osceola Middle School they
use the POD method of teaching. What is the advantage of the POD
instead of teaching like they do at Yearling Middle School?

Editor's Note: We spoke with Ken Kenworthyassistant superin-
tendent of schools. He said the same teaching concept is used at
both schools. In both schools, a group of 150 students rotate
between five or six teachers. At Osceola, that group is called a pod
- at Yearling it is called a team. Mr. Kenworthy said there were
many advantages to this teaching system. It makes five of six
teachers responsible for 150 students. This makes planning, and
student conferences, easier.

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
According to Florida State Bass
Federation Youth Director Charlie
Hays, Ms. Hays received a tele-
phone call Friday afternoon
informing her that April Floyd beat
out the other southern region
champions from Tennessee, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Geor-
gia with a score of 140 out of a pos-
sible 150 Friday morning to win the
right to represent the southern
region at the Junior World Bass-
master Classic CastingKids compe-
tition to be held in Birmingham,
Ala. in February.
Ms. Floyd made history in 2004
when she won the Florida State
Championship in the 7-10 year old
division of the CastingKids compe-
tition along with Ryan Mellette,
also of Okeechobee, who won the
11-14 year old division. It was the
first time that competitors from the
same town had finished in the top
spot of their respective age groups.
It was also the first time that a
young lady had won the event in
Florida. It was the first time that
Okeechobee had ever had a state
champion, let along two.
Ms. Floyd qualified again is 2005
and once again in 2006.
She will be competing in the
Junior World Bassmaster Classic
CastingKids competition for cash,
prizes and college scholarships.

God's p

By Reverend Duane Eatmon
Pastor Duane Eatmon,
measure Island Baptist Church
"Greater love has no one
than this that he lay down his
life for his friends. You are my
friends if you do what I com-
mand." (John 15: 13 14).
There's something special
about the word "friend".
Jesus is the friend a friend
would like to have.
When He says, "You are my
friends" (John 15:14) He's
speaking on our human level
that we can clearly understand
and He wants us to contrast His
friendship, which is passionate
and perfect to the best of friend-
ships we have ever known.
We've all had different expe-
rienceswhen it comes to friend-
ships. Probably the best known
friendships in all the Bible was
between Jonathan, the son of
King Saul, and David, the young
hero of Israel. Their friendship,
recorded for us in Scripture, is a
great example of what a great
friendship should be. Where
there could have been great
rivalry and resentment there is
great friendship.
Jonathan was in line for the
throne. But David was so unde-
niably blessed by God that the
people were saying that David
should be the next king.
No resentment... antago-
nism. .. rivalry... only a passion-
ate and beautiful friendship.
Both sacrificed in order to put
the other's interests ahead of
his own.
Sometimes a love that exists
between one friend and anoth-
er leads to the ultimate sacri-


passionate love for you


Reflections
from the
Pulpit
fice... death. A grandfather, in a
moment of self-sacrifice gave
his life for his grandson. The
two were out in a boat on the
Monongahela River in West Vir-
ginia, and neither of them could
swim. The child, for some rea-
son or another, fell overboard
and was drowning. So the man
jumped in after the child. Both
drowned. But afterward when
they found the bodies, the
grandfather still had the young
child clutched in his arms. He
had been so anxious to save his
grandson that he had not even
opened his arms to attempt to
swim to save himself.
When you hear a story like
that we tend to become silent,
for we know that we stand
before something sublime. It is
the ultimate sacrifice, the sacri-
fice of one's life.
Because of such sacrifices
we understand what the Lord is
saying when He declares in
clear reference to His own self-
sacrifice: "Greater love has no
one than this, that he lay down
his life for his friends" (John
15:13).
Jesus is the friend that loves
like no other. We can't just talk
about Jesus' sacrifice on a
human level. His death surpass-
es anything we can imagine.
Occasionally one human being
will voluntarily die for another...
yet, even that doesn't equal the
sacrifice of Jesus. He calls us


His friends, even before we
were really His friends. When
He died for us... He did so while
we were yet enemies. It was
"while we were yet sinners,
Christ died for us"
(Romans5:8).
Am I a friend to Jesus? "You


. 4Vic


are my friends if you do what I
command"(John 15:14). This
means that we are to show our
friendship to Him by simple
obedience. Simple? Yes...sim-
ple...but it is simple obedience.
Obedience is to be active, con-
tinuous and unconditional.

in their concert appearances. They
are known for their friendliness,
teamwork, dedication and perse-
verance as they all strive to fulfill
God's potential for their lives. Most
importantly, they have a keen sense
of responsibility to present a pro-
gram that is uplifting and inspira-
tional. Another trademark of The
Harvesters is to strengthen their
faith and that of all concert atten-
dees, whom they refer to as their
"Christian family" as they share the
joy and hope of God's plan of salva-
tion for our lives. During their con-
certs, the audience shares in some
entertaining, light-hearted
moments; however the focus of
their ministry is firmly established
in the joy of the acceptance of Jesus
Christ as one's personal savior
while delivering his word of salva-
tion and encouragement. Their
message encourages us all to incor-
porate in our daily Christian walk,
faith, patience, prayerfulness and
thankful hope until the return of


Jesus Christ.

his calling in life was to minister in
song as a witness to Jesus Christ
and His wonderful love and saving

TALLAHASSEE The
state's unemployment
remained at 3.3 percent in
December, unchanged from
November, the Agency for
Workforce Innovation reported
Friday.
The state's seasonally adjust-
ed unemployment rate for
December was 1.2 percentage
points lower than the national
rate of 4.5 percent.


Walton County in the Florida
Panhandle reported the lowest
unemployment rate at 2.1 per-
cent, while Madison County in
north central Florida had the
highest at 7.1 percent.
Job growth, however, was
positive for the entire year in
Florida with 212,600 new jobs.
The 2.7 percent increase in new
jobs nearly doubled the national
average of 1.4 percent.

Haiti flights this year


PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti -
Discount carrier Spirit Airlines will
offer service between Fort Laud-

Thursday.
Fort Lauderdale-based Spirit

travel."
Spirit currently flies to 29 desti-

WHAT DO I NEED


TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can
afford, says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
I Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:





Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home own-
ership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and inter-
est payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITL" Monthly homeowners' association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.
