Two teens were arrested and
charged last week in the recent
incidents of vandalism at the
skate park in Okeechobee.
The park has been closed
due to the investigation and the
amount of vandalism done to
electrical meters, vending
machines and windows.
The Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners
agreed Thursday, Jan. 25, to re-
open the park on a six-mnonth
trial basis. After th-at period of
time, they will decide whether to
keep the park open or closer it,
Detective Bettyie Taylor of the
Okeechobee City Police Depart-
ment (OCPD) saidl F~riday, Jan.


26, that she had arrested two
local teenagers in connection
with the recent acts of vandal-
ism. The two teens a 13-year-
old boy and a 15-year-old boy -
were both charged with eniminal
mischief, a first-degree misde-
meanor.
Because of their ages, the
identities of the two boys were
not released.
The two boys were arrested
Jan. 19 and booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail, where
they were held for approximate-
ly four hours. One of the boys
was taken out of school in hand-
cuffs, while the other boy was
arrested at his home. He was

students to graduate as a rec-
ognized member of the
National Honor Society.
Ace Pre-K is held on the
grounds of New Endeavor
High School for children too
young to attend elementary
school and have developmen-
tal delays.
Another upcoming event
that was discussed was the
possibility of an end-of-the-
year trip for the students. This
trip would be a one-day event
that rewards the students for a
year of hard work.
"This would be a one day
trip," said Kavisha Zaveri, NHS
treasurer and senior at OHS.
"We are also going to.have to
pay full price."
The ideas that were pre-
sentedj to the members as pos-
sibilities were Seaworld,
Epcot, Bush Gardens and
Islands of Adventure. After a
round of voting the totals


showed a favor to Epcot and,
pending approval by school
officials, that will be the desti-
nation of the organization at a
latter date.
"We have not been
approved yet, so this is not a
definite plan," stated Miss
Zaveri.
The National Honor Society
is an organization devoted to
encouraging achievement,
leadership and community
service in students. Each
branch is individually operated
under the direction of their
sponsors.
The OHS chapter, under the
direction of Wendy Reister,
holds several parties at Ace
Pre-K throughout the year, par-
ticipates in campus clean-ups,
hosts a fall festival at Central
Elementary and is responsible
for the high school's teacher

TAMARAC (AP) City officials
planned on Friday to use about
40,000 pounds of iee left over from
hurricane relief efforts to water
plants, bushes and grass on a 1.7-
acre patch of land.
Officials had initially wanted to
give the ice to residents to water
their lawns, but the plan was
scrapped after it was deemed to be
too costly for sheriff's deputies to
manage the expected crowds.
The ice is costing the state
$90,000 a month to chill and is
being stored in Bartow and Jack-
sonville.
Tamarac officials asked for the
ice after the Florida Division of
Emergency Management
-announced this month it wanted to
get rid of it because it wouldn't last


until this year's hurricane season'
the South Florida Sun-Sentinel
reported.
The city's truckload will cost the
state $850 for gas and other
expenses, said state emergency
management spokesman Mike
Stone.
"We have no problems with the
usage," Stone said. "We made the
offer to the local governments to
do it and they are free to do with
the ice as they feel meets their local
needs.
"It is the ultimate recycling proj-
ect," Stone added.
The state has trucked ice to
seven places so far, including a fire
department near Orlando, a His-
panic festival in Miami and a
Catholic school in Hollywood.

"Some other kids saw them and
turned them in," said Detective
Taylor. .
According to the detective, one
boy used his skateboard to break
the electrical meters. The other
boy, she said, use his skateboard to
hit and damage a vending
machine.
According to Florida Power&
Light, the electrical meters cost
between $400 and $500 each. The
parents, said Detective Taylor, will
be responsible for paying for the
damages.
The current charges may be
changed, however, because of the
dollar amount of the damages
done. If the state attorney's office
chooses, the current charges may
be dropped and more serious
charges filed, said Detective Taylor.
The skate park was scheduled
to re-open Friday, Jan. 26.

After spending their time in a

~the boys were turned over to their

because the boys are juveniles the

Mr. Cassels said the two
groups should agree on concepts
first and then they could work out
the numbers.
On the cattlemen's request to
name the arena, Mr. Betts said if
they put enough money into
improvements they should have
the right to name the arena. He
compared that to the advertising
on the county's baseball score-
boards that call attention to the
furnishers of those scoreboards.
He went on to say that any
lease of the facility should be at no
cost tothe county and be of bene-
ft to te taxpayers.
Ilf you can get hard cost back,
you haven't lost anything," he
said.
He suggested the cattle men
share in the cost of capital
improvements.
Mr. Betts noted that the facility
has lost rental fees in the past
because the county was asking
too much.
"They (the cattlemen) expect
some revenues, but revenues
should be shared," Mr. Cassels
said.
Mr. Brandel remarked that rev-
enue sharing was the sticking
point.


"If we draw a line in the sand,
this is not negotiating," he said.
"Mr. Cassels has a good docu-
ment, give it back to the cattle-
men."
County administrator George
Long noted that there are a few
"unusual things" that make it diffi-
cult for the advisory committee to
comment on the proposed agree-
ment. He stated that there was an
overlap in membership between
the cattlemen and the advisory
committee, and that Mr. Keogh is
a member of the cattlemen's
association.tobhdresd
"es gongtob hrr.ese
in this case," Mrong sai .
Mr. Betts said that Mr. Keogh's
first obligation should be to the
county.
Mr. Long replied that it was a
matter of ethics and perception.
There was some discussion as
to Mr. Keogh's relationship to the
advisory committee.
Mr. Keogh said he saw himself
as an advisor to the committee,
rather than being over the com-
mittee.

ability to do so. He added there
were good points in both propos-
als.
Pete Keogh, agri-civic center
manager, suggested that every-
One be treated equally. He men-
tioned the difference between the
cattle men and the fair associa-
tion. He said the cattlemen were
being requested to pay a certain
percentage of income, while the
Pair association isn't. He added
that the fair association is not
required to pay for capitol
improvements
Mr. Keogh asserted that the
cattlemen's association would be
a tremendous marketing tool for
the agri-civic center. He said that
members of the cattlemen's asso-
ciation belong to other organiza-
tions. These other organizations
might bring their events to the
agri-civic center because of the
cattlemen's connection with the
facility.
Commissioner Clif Betts sug-
gested a workshop with the cat-
tlemen. He said it would save
time and would allow the com-
mission to see what the cattle men
want.
"We need to talk it out,"' added
Commissioner Noel Chandler.

Wonder how many apples
had fallen from the trees before
Isaac Newton came to hlis certain
conclusion regarding the law of
gravity.
I lowv many; people had
with the lid being~ lifted by steam
pressure? One day the bright-eyed
Wt s w this an began thinking
What ability did Newton and
Watt have that millions before
them did not possess? Did they
just use the ability they had?
Little ability does not mean lit-
tle opportunity. Many great serv-
ices to mankind have been ren-
dered by persons of little ability. No gift
is small if we make good use of it. No
opportunity is inlsignificant if we use it
Thought to remember: "No
matter how little we have, triumph
follows its sincere use.

Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
PAVING: Can you tell me when they are going to finish 36th Street that
go~es through Basswood? They got half of it finished and it's been like that
fo~r a month or more. Are we going to have to wait for another election
ilefore thle county gets onto the contractor to finish? I hope not. We need
that finished because we pay enough taxes to have better service than
that. Editor's Note: While a portion of the street has been paved, the
county has rejected the work. The county had a core test done on the
asphalt and the results of that test indicated that the asphalt is not accept-
able. Because of that, the asphalt will have to be removed and the road
repaved. The county is working with the contractor now to determine
h ow thley want to approach the work that needs to be done.

JUSTICE: I am a very concerned person. I came forward to get a sexu-
al predator, a stalker and murderer brought to justice and when I tied to
testify against him he called me a liar and a slanderer. All these years later
everyone finds out that I was telling the truth. Isn't that justice for you?
Whlen thle law lets criminals go, don't worry because the truth always
comes out no matter how hard you bury it. I was told last year that this
guy killed himself out of guilt over what he had done. I thought it was
such good news because no innocent person would be killed or no inno-
cent child would be molested by him. Now I find out in the Okeechobee
News that he is at it again molesting a child. The kid is real lucky this
guy didn't kill him to keep him quiet about what he had done. They put
hlim back in prison. He doesn't deserve life, even in prison. The victim he
helped kill didn't get one.

WAR: I'd like to make a suggestion about winning this Iraq war. It
doesn't take more troops. All we have to do is coat our bullets in pigs
blood and let them know about it. That would be the end of the war
because they are deathly afraid of that. All's fair in love and war and it
would save a lot of American lives. Drop our wild pigs on their country
and coat our bullets in pig blood. That's all we've got to do and we will
win it,

VETERANS: What guarantee has the United States government offer-
ing our veterans when they come back from this war? The same as they
offered the Korean veterans, or the Vietnam veterans, or the Desert War
veterans who are living in cardboard boxes on the streets of our big cities
oihw no teia elptatThebe areesus ring rom dseases ehtwe en
kind of animal have we got in the White House?

NO PROFITS: Profits from the Agri-Civic Center! That's a good one!
That would be really funny if it weren't so depressing. That place is a
money pit that has proven to be a black hole sucking in the taxpayers'
money. Is anyone foolish enough to think that place will ever even be
close to breaking even?

OLD JAIL: I went to the county commission meeting to offer support
for the opening of the skate park and was glad that the kids are getting
another opportunity to enjoy that facility. But I decided to make a day of it
and sit through the whole meeting. I have some questions I'd like Okee-
chobee News to help me with. What's the deal with the old jail? Why
don't our commissioners want to restore it? I made up my mind to get
involved with that group because we need to preserve what little bit of
history we have left in Okeechobee. Please tell me who the group is that
would like to restore the old jail. Also, I am all for growth in Okeechobee
but when someone from out of town can come in here and pitch a tent
to sell their stuff without even being a part of this town and without even
saying who they are, I feel it's time to put a stop to it. Why don't our coun-
tycmissners at to protect s Editor's Nioe:S Te Mw ru s
Street. From what we've been told, it's not that they are against the
restoration but it seems that it is turning into a very costly project. Howev-
er, at this point no decision has been made by the board. As for your
question about the tent sale, the commissioners directed staff to develop
a concept that will protect the community. Once staff has finished it, the
plan will be put before the countycommissioners and theywill decide on
the bestwayto handle this issue.

LAW LIBRARY: Does anyone know when the law library will be mov-
Ing from the old courthouse to the new courthouse? They have a large
room in the new one marked law library but it is empty. If you want to
use the law library you have to make an appointment to use it and it is
like pulling teeth. It is only open one day a week. They spent all that
money on a new courthouse but can't afford to move the books from the
old library to the new library. Anyone have any clue as what is going on?
Editor's Note: It has not been determined what will be done with the law
library. There is no requirement that the library must be retained, and
space in the new judicial center is not such that the library can be estab-
lished without an attendant there to supervise. Currently, if anyone wants
to use the law library an appointment can be made, but s nce there is very

Reverend Gene Rodenberry
World Ministries Outreach
A friend sent me a copy of the
following story.
Malachi 3:3 says, "He will sit
as a refiner and purifier of sil-
ver. "
This verse puzzled some
women in a Bible study and they
wondered what this statement
meant about the character and
nature of God.
One of the women offered to
find out the process of refining
silver and get back to the group
at their next Bible study.
That week the woman called
a silversmith and made an
appointment to watch him at
work. She didn't mention any-
thing about the reason for their
interest beyond her curiosity
about the process of refining sil-
ver.
As she watched the silver-
smith, he held a piece of silver
over the fire and let it heat up.
He explained that in refining sil-
ver, one needed to hold the sil-
ver in the middle of the fire
where the flames were hottest
as to burn away all the impuri-
ties.
The woman though about
God holding us in such a hot
spot; then she thought again
about the verse that says: "He
sits as a refiner and purifier of
silver."
She asked the silversmith if it
was true that he had to sit there
in front of the fire the whole
time the silver was being
refined.
The man answered that yes,
he not only had to sit there hold-
ing the silver, but he had to keep
his eyes on the silver the entire
time it was in the fire. If the sil-
ver was left a moment too long
in the flames, it would be
destroyed.
The woman was silent a
moment. The she asked the sil-
versmith, "How do you know
when the silver is fully refined?"
He smiled at her and
answered,"Oh that; easy when
I see my image in it."
If today your are feeling the
heat of the fire, remember that
God has His eye on you and will
keep watching you until He sees
His image in you.
This very moment, you might
need to know that God is watch-
ing over you, and whatever
you're going through, you'll be a
better person in the end if you
will submit to the silversmith
(God). He loves you and you are
very valuable to Him. Irreplace-
able, for you are unique, no on
