these incidents, 419 law
enforcement officers were
injured and five were killed.
This operation will also
include enforcement of aggres-
sive driving habits.
Railroad crossing

County
New subdivision
geared toward
equestrian activities

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Plans are under way for a
unique subdivision that could
impact the county in ways unan-
ticipated up to now.
At their meeting Tuesday, Jan.
23, the Okeechobee County Plan-
ning Board/Board of Adjustments


By Chauna Aguiar
Okeechobee News
The City of Okeechobee
began demolition on the old
storage shed east of City Hall
Chambers that was damaged in
the many hurricanes that Flori-
da incurred in the past three
years.
Once the old building is
demolished and removed, a
new facility will be built and
used to store files and paper
work.
The City Clerk's office has
been overrun by boxes upon
boxes of files with the current
requirements by state legisla-
tion for document retention.
The clerk is required to keep
documentation for many years
ranging from two years to per-
manent.
Files that require permanent
retention include minutes and
ordinances, as well as other
documents. The city currently
has all documentation dating
back to 1915 when the city was
first established.
This requirement sets a bur-
den on the city to be able to
store the documents in a proper


plan for The Ranch


and Appeals recommended pre-
liminary plat approval for the pro-
posed 202-lot subdivision called
The Ranch.
The proposed subdivision
would be geared toward eques-
trian activities with several prac-
tice polo fields and riding trails.
The Ranch would be located
in the northeast corner of the
county against the Indian River
County line. The unique thing
about this subdivision is that the
only access to the subdivision
would be via State Route 60 in
Indian River County.


Access to the subdivision'
could create challenges for law
enforcement, fire protection and
school transportation.
Emergency services and
school transportation were of
concern to county attorney John
Cassels, even though developer
Dolff Kale said he was content
with the current level of service
available. Mr. Cassels noted that
taxpaying property owners might
demand a higher level of service.
Plans are still in the prelimi-
nary stage and these things will
have to be worked out before


plans are finalized.
The entire property is about
2,800 acres. Most lots are a mini-
mum of 100 acres.
Each lot would front an inter-
nal road system that would be
built by the developer and main-
tained by a homeowners' associ-
ation.
The Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners
will now have to act on the rec-
ommendation for preliminary
plat approval.
In another issue that took an
interesting turn, Brian Enderle


was granted a variance from rear
setback requirements after the
second vote.
Mr. Enderle claimed that when
it was built, he did not know his
back porch encroached 2 feet
into the required 15-foot setback
from the rear property line. He
claims the carpenter who did the
work was supposed to take care
of those details.
' The property in question is
located on S.E. 35th Terrace.

Teen charged


with the sale


of cocaine, pot


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee teen has
been booked into the St. Lucie
County Jail under a $75,000
bond in
connection
with his
arrest on
drug
charges.
Derrick
Tremaine
Miller, 17,
N.E. 39th
Blvd., is
charged Derrick
with the sale Miller
of cocaine
within 1,000 feet of a commu-
nity center or park and the sale
of cannabis within 1,000 feet of
a community center or park.


Miller was arrested locally
by Deputy Matthew Hurst of
the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) on a war-
rant issued out of St. Lucie
County. Miller was taken into
custody on Jan. 22 in Okee-
chobee, and is now in the St.
Lucie County Jail.
Even though he is a juve-
nile, he will be tried as an adult,
said a spokesperson from the
State Attorney's Office in Fort
Pierce.
Reports from the St. Lucie
County Sheriff's Office
(SLCSO) state that at the time
of Miller's arrest, there were
three outstanding warrants
calling for his arrest on charges
of violation of probation. How-

hardship when we make him tear
it out," was the opinion of board
member Ted Kelchner.
Board member Jeff Sumner
was afraid of setting a precedent if
someone came to the board
ahead of the fact and requested a
variance.
The motion to grant the vari-
ance ended in a 3-3 tie with Carl
Ferrero, Matt Orr and Mr. Kelchner
voting yes and Jeff Sumner, Pam
Newcomer and chairman Mike
Long voting no. Board member
Joey Hoover was absent.
The question was brought up
that according to Robert's Rules of
Order, the chairman does not vote
except to break a tie.
However, under Florida law all
elected and appointed board
members must vote unless they
have a conflict of interest, regard-
less of whether or not they are
serving as chairman.
Mr. Cassels advised that the
motion failed as result of the tie
vote. He said that, in effect, no
action was taken and the appli-
cant deserved action. He recom-
mended the board keep dis-
cussing the issue until someone
changed their mind.
After further discussion, Mr.
Enderle was granted his petition
on the second vote. This time
there were only two no votes -
Mr. Sumner and Mr. Long.
Mr. Sumner's fears about
someone applying for a setback
before the fact were realized in the
next agenda item.


Timesavers Properties, Inc.
requested a variance from rear
setback requirements for their
convenience store at the intersec-
tion of S.R. 710 and S.E. 40th
Avenue.
Timesaver president Randy
Jones stated that he wanted to
open a Subway sandwich shop in
his convenience store. In order to
do so, he wanted to build a store-
room on the back of his building
that would result in an 8.5- foot
rear setback instead of the
required 20-foot setback for com-
mercial property that adjoins resi-
dential property.
Planning director Bill Royce did
not recommend granting the vari-
ance.
"I don't see that it meets our
criteria," he said.
He noted that there is an unde-
veloped right of way between the
two properties. Another section of
that right of way had already been
abandoned. If the right of way
were abandoned, the applicant
would have the required setback.
However, Mr. Royce said the
county had indicated that the right
of way might be needed for
drainage.
Mr. Sumner stated that the
intent of the setback requirement
is to keep commercial buildings
from being built adjacent to resi-
dential lots. He said the right of
way in question would probably
never be opened up and would
give adequate setback.
Steve Dobbs, engineer for the
project, noted that the residential
lot behind the convenience store
is triangle shaped and it would be
hard to build anything on it.


. -


The board voted unanimously
to grant the variance.
After some discussion, Michael
and Cynthia Ricker were granted a
special exception to allow equine
related activities such as horse
boarding, small-scale competi-
tions, a training facility, health clin-
ics for horses, horse auctions and
a specialty tack shop on their 1000
N.W. 50th Drive property that is
zoned agriculture.
The motion passed with Mr.
Kelchner casting the lone dissent-
ing vote.
"I have a problem creating a
commercial enterprise in a resi-
dential setting," he stated.
Even though the property in
question and surrounding lands
are zoned agriculture, the proper-
ty has been subdivided into an
eight-lot subdivision with each lot
being over 10 acres.
The Ricker's property, known
as Mi-Cin Ranch, is about 21 acres.
A neighbor, Carl Shumate,
complained about lights from
their arena shining into his house.
Another neighbor, Rosaire Badger,
said he no problem with the lights.
Mr. Long said the number one
issue was lighting.
One of the requirements of the
special exception was that lighting
be shielded to avoid offsite
impacts. The Rickers were also
limited to four horse auctions a
year. They were also forbidden to
sponsor public spectator events or
charge admission for viewing
events.
In other action, the board:
granted Alfred and David
Raciti a special exception to allow
for automotive sales and repair in


a commercial zoning district on
U.S. 441 N.;
e granted a special exception
to Anton Realty to allow for sales
and rebuilding of golf carts in a
commercial zoning district on U S.
441 N;
recommended the Okee-
chobee County Board of County
Commissioners grant preliminary
plat approval to the two-lot Frazier
Oaks subdivision that would be
located east of S.W 28th Avenue
and south of S.W 16th Street;
recommended the commis-
sioners grant a change in zoning
from agriculture to residential
family for Hawk's Landing II Corp.
for property on the west side of
U.S. 441 N. between N.E. 138th
Street and N.E. 144th Drive;
e recommended that Gene Ful-
ford be granted a change in zon-
ing from agriculture to public serv-
ice for property north of Micco
Bluff Road in order to build a
residual management facility ;
and,
recommended a change in
zoning from residential mixed to
residential general that would give
an affordable senior housing
development access to N.W. Third
Lane.
A second hearing on the above
zoning changes will be held
before the county commissioners
at 9 a.m. on Feb. 8 in their cham-
bers at the Okeechobee County
Courthouse, 304 N.W. Second St.

"Peter Pan", also know as the
captain of Neverland, leads Wendy
and her brothers to the magical
place where you never grow up.
This classic tale is coming to life for
all of Okeechobee to see, thanks to
the Okeechobee High School
(OHS) Drama Club. The perform-
ance will be held in the OHS audi-
torium on Jan. 26 and 27 at 8 p.m.
The drama class has been
working on "Peter Pan" since
before Christmas break. "It has
been a real challenge," says the
play's director,. Ms. Gladys Borel.
"This play, in my opinion, has been
difficult to pull off. "Peter Pan" is
not a play you can put together in a
week, and it has taken us awhile to
acclimate to that," said Daylet
Leyva, who is playing the role of
Wendy.
"This is Ms. Borel's last year as a
drama teacher, and I believe that
she gave us this play as a challenge
to make us prove to ourselves that


we can do it!" Daylet said. This play
has five acts, which means it's
longer than most plays. Like peo-
ple say it's not what goes on
onstage but behind the stage that
matters. The drama class loves to
be onstage and give a show like no
other.
Playing the role of Peter Pan is
Tiffany Etchison. "Peter Pan" is her
favorite movie and she says she is
honored to play the title role. "I
strongly believe that this play is
going to be fun. Imagination will
definitely take place, and it will
probably bring the inner child out
in most of us. I know I had fun
working on it! said Tiffany.
The characters in "Peter Pan"


are as follows:
Peter Pan: Tiffany Etchison;
Wendy Darling: Daylet Leyva; John
Darling: Nick Stepanovich;
Michael: Jeremy Alcock; Mr. Dar-
ling: Seth Garner; Mrs. Darling:
Renea Russell; Nana: Megan
Schrock and Liza: Nicole Sexton.
The lost boys are: Slightly: Janelle
Folk; First Twin: Ashley McRaye;
Second Twin: Brittany Haggard;
Nibs: Marbeli Morejon; Tootles:
Adrian Fonseca and Curly: Heather

not convictions, unless otherwise

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.

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

DISCIPLINE: That's the problem here in the good ole U.S. of A.
- the rights of parents to raise their children have been delegated
to the government. I say if that's the case then give me a check each
week and contribute to their support. Lots of us were spanked
when we were growing up. Ever try eating in a nice place but you
have to put up with kids running around, and the parents simply say
kids will be kids; or, screaming kids in the grocery store. Please get
a grip on them before they get the grip on you. If my boys acted up
in public or at home they were spanked and told to behave. I am
not talking about beating them. They grew up to be productive
members of society with no ill effects.

ROLE MODELS: Both of my kids got a quick swat on the seat of
the pants if they acted up when they were little. In their teens, both
the boy and the girl had a run-in with the law, and both stood up
and took their licks there too. Now both are in their middle/late 20's
and are law abiding homeowners, who contribute to society the
way I would expect them to. This "time out" thing doesn't work,
and it's about time that the liberals learn that. If you teach your kids
to behave when they are little and teach them some manners, it
lasts the rest of their life. However, you have to be the role model
the whole time too.

DO WHAT YOU SAY: I feel the key to a kid's behaving is structure
and constancy. If every time you did something wrong at work your
boss said he was going to fire you but never did, before to long his
words would have no merit. Therefore, you might as well do what
you want. If you say you're going to spank them, than do it. If you're
going to take their phone away, then do it. If you say it but don't do
it then why say it at all?

SPANKING: I think that all children should be taught right from
wrong. I also think that spanking your child on is good too. But,
some parents take it to a whole other level and those are the par-
ents whose rights should be revoked.

INSURANCE: My insurance company added $53 to my bill for the
people that live on the coast on the waterfront, and I don't think
that is right. I don't know why Congress doesn't take that up. I'm
very annoyed with it. I live on Social Security. My insurance compa-
ny tells me everybody got it added onto theirs, but nobody that I talk
to got it. I must have the wrong insurance company.

STOLEN BOAT: Sometime Sunday, around noon, somebody
drove off with my boat that was parked at the former K-mart shop-
ping center with a for sale sign on it. I just wondered if anybody saw
anything like that going on. If they did they can call the sheriff's
office and tell them. There would be a reward if we found the per-
son that stole the boat.

SIGNS: There seems to be nowhere in this city or county where
anybody will clean up the signs that say house for sale, garage sales,
houses for rent, singles organization or any of the other signs on the
sidewalk, in the center of the road or anyplace. Isn't the sanitation
or the police department ever going to try help cleaning up these
signs and the boxes that lay along the curb waiting to get stuffed
down into the drain? That all costs money in the end.

WALKERS: This is to the people that go walking or riding their
bicycles in the dark whether it is early morning qr in the evening.
Please watch cars and trucks and get off the road if you are on your
bicycle or walking. This is a bad thing for you to be doing in the dark
and you won't even move off the road.

SKATE PARK: If you want your children to have the use of the
skate park, you should volunteer some of your time to help super-
vise it. Parents of the ball teams take turns running the concession
stand. Parents of the 4-H members volunteer their time to supervise
4-H activities. Parents help supervise church programs. The only
program I am aware of that supervision is provided is the pool, and
you pay to get in to help pay the lifeguards. But even there, younger
children are not allowed in unless they are accompanied by an
adult. Any parent should go check out the activities their child is
involved in anyway. Why would you allow your child to hang out
somewhere that there is no adult supervision? If the parents of the
skateboarders get together, they can work out a schedule. I think
the county would work with them to reopen the park, if the parents
will take the responsibility of supervising the kids. I also agree that
security cameras would be a good idea to catch the vandals. A few
extra drive-by patrols by deputies would not hurt either.
