A wide variety of topics includ-

fees were dealt with by the Okee-
chobee County Board of County
Commissioners.


The commissioners also dis-
cussed the Okeechobee County

a list of priorities occupied at their
bimonthly meeting held Thursday,
Jan.25.
"We want to work with you
all," Brandon Tucker, of the Eco-
nomic Council of Okeechobee
County, told the commissioners.
He discussed several issues
that were of importance to his
organization. "
Mr. Tucker said the rebirth of


the Okeechobee Development
Authority (ODAi, which commis-
sioners dissolved a few years ago,
is critical. He went on to say that
the economic council feels strong-
ly about impact fees and encour-
ags the commissioners to adopt
a rhedule of impact fees.
He also advocated the widen-
irg of S.R. 70.
"Infrastructure is key to any
economic growth," Mr. Tucker
Waid.

He encouraged working with

ing Lake Okeechobee.
He also mentioned the impor-
tance of lands zoned for industrial
use.
"We may not have the same

common goal," he said.
He stated that within 30 days

Remington hailed Cow-Hunter


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Many people do not realize
that selling beef cattle was one of
the first industries in Florida.
Herds ranged in size from 5,000
to 50,000 head in the early days of
white settlement.
Rustling was prevalent
throughout the state. This was
because Florida was anr open
range. There was not a fenced
pasture anywhere in the state
and cattle roamed freely.
Although the cattle were brand-
ed, brands were frequently
changed. The early cowboys
would round cows up over miles
and miles of open plains, in the
hammocks, and by the rivers and
streams. Then they would drive
them to market.
Florida's old-time cowboys


Recollecions
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


had a unique way of herding cat-
tle. They used long whips made
of braided leather. Snapping
these whips in the air made a
loud "crack." That sound
brought stray cattle back into line
fast and earned cowboys the
nickname of "crackers." Many
rode the rugged, rather small
horses known as "cracker
ponies" of "marsh tackles"


Cracker cowboys also count-
ed on dogs to move cattle along
the trail. Their tough 'cur' dogs
could help get a cow out of a
marsh or work a hundred steers
into a tidy group. For those rough
riders of Florida's open prairies, a
good dog, a horse and whip
were all the tools a true cow-
hunter needed.
Florida cattle were referred to
as scrub cows, ridiculous look-
ing. They were once described as
"no bigger than donkeys, lacking
quality as beef or milk produc-
ers." So why were they valuable?
They were valuable because the
animals could survive in the hot,
wet, mosquito-infested wilder-
ness areas of Florida.
The legendary Frederic Rem-
ington was an American painter,

These cow-hunters rode into the town of Arcadia, where the
famous western artist, Frederick Remington was on assign-
ment for Harpers New Monthly Magazine in 1895 and eventu-
ally drew them and their Cracker horses. The illustration
appeared In the magazine in August 1895.

would meet once a month with the
commissioners.
In another economic matter,
county planning director Bill Royce
presented the commissioners with
a list of 10 possible sites for future
industries.
County attorney John Cassels
advised the board that there are
disadvantages of the county own-
ing industrial land. He added that
the county does not have the
expertise to know what property is
most marketable.
Commission Chairman Ray
Domer suggested entering into an
agreement with landowners so
that when a prospective industry
comes along the property would
be available.
The consensus was that it was
first necessary to determine what
type of industry was available in
order to determine the site require-
ments.


Deputy county administrator
Jim Threewits said the type of
industry would determine the site
selection. He said some industries
need rail transportation while oth-
ers do not. Also, an industry that
used precise measurements would
not want a train shaking the build-
ing, he added.
In connection with this discus-
sion, the board identified a site in
the western part of the county and
directed staff to execute necessary
documents for this site Ito be con-
sidered as an industry site for the
South Central Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern.
In another economic matter,
local automobile dealer Dowling
Watford, representing several other
local dealers, protested tent sales
conducted by auto dealers from
out of town.
"There is no benefit to the com-
munity from this type event," he
said.
He stated that no sales tax was
collected by the county and there
was no benefit to consumers.
.He said promoters of tent sales


- -


don't have to have the zoning and
special exception that local dealers
are required to have, as well as an
occupational license.
Mr. Watford, also a member of
the Okeechobee City Council,
noted that such sales are banned in
the City of Okeechobee.
As a result of the discussion,
staff was directed to address the
idea of temporary sales in Okee-
chobee County.
Because of a discussion of pri-
orities, county administrator
George Long was asked to draw
up a list of ongoing and proposed
county projects for prioritizing.
Maureen Burroughs of Okee-
chobee Main Street presented her
organization's quarterly financial
report and gave the board a run
down on its activities over the last
quarter.
Main Street is planning another
barbecue cook-off, and an addi-
tional mural for the downtown
area. They are still working to save
the old jail and are developing a
plan for securing funding for a
courthouse park.

Her husband, Terry Burroughs,
a member of the fair committee,
addressed the board concerning
plans for the fair.
The board gave unanimous
approval to his proposal to allow
the Seminole Tribe of Florida to
erect four chickees at the fair-
ground. The tribe will maintain the
huts that will be used during Semi-
nole Indians Days -March 16, 17
and 18 at the fair to present vari-
ous aspects of Seminole culture.
In other action, the board:
pulled from the agenda con-
sideration of hiring a consultant to
evaluate the Okeechobee County
Fire/Rescue assessment process;
approved a 60-month lease
for a copier for the capital improve-
ments program for $16,934.40;
purchased a Ford E-250 cargo
van for outreach services for
$14,684; and,
approved Mr. Cassels' sugges-
tions for procedures to follow for
speakers wishing to address the
countycommission.

Cowboys
Continued From Page 1
sculptor, and writer, famous for his
lively scenes (paintings, drawings
and bronze sculptures) of the Old
West. Mr. Remington visited Arca-
dia, Florida on assignment for
Harpers, when he wrote and illus-
trated the following description of
the Florida cowboy that was pub-
lished in August 1895. The year
1895 was the year before Rauler-
sons came south from Basinger to
what is now Okeechobee, 25 years
before Clewiston, Pahokee and
Belle Glade were established and
20 years before Moore Haven.
In Cracker Cowboys of Florida,
after having met Bone Mizell, Rem-
ington wrote:
"One can thresh the straw of
history until he is well worn out,
and also is running some risk of
wearing others out who may have
to listen. So I will waive the telling
of who the first cowboy was, even
if I knew; but the last one who has
come under my observation lives
down in Florida, and the way it
happened was this:
"1 was sitting in a 'sto' do' (store
door) as the 'Crackers' say, waiting
for the clerk to load some 'number
eights' (lumber), when my friend
said, 'Look at the cowboys!' This
immediately caught my interest.
With me cowboys are what gems
and porcelains are to some others.
"Ti[o very emaciated Texas

Florida that year to paint the
scruffy-looking Mizell astride his
horse. Remington called the paint-
ing "A Cracker Cowboy." Other
paintings of Bone and his cowboy
colleagues appeared in the August
1895 issue of Harper's New.Month-
ly Magazine. The name stuck.
Eventually it evolved into "Florida
Cracker," the title now reserved for.
the Sunshine State's native-born.
sons and daughters.
According to the descriptions,
Bone took on the gawky appear-.
ance of a fledgling Crane. Unusual-
ly tall, lean and lanky in the saddle,
he often let his long legs dangle
below the stirrups. His awkward-
ness was deceptive because Bone
could ride his small, Florida-bred
horse called a Marsh Tackie -
with the easy grace of a circus rider.
He could gracefully flick a fly off a
cow's rump with his 18-foot bull-
whip, never raising a hair on the
poor beast. Most Florida drovers
had this same skill. They used their
whips to herd cows on cattle
drives.
According to legend, it was the
loud "craack" of the whips that
gave Florida's drovers their nick-
name, "Cracker cowboys," but the
term "Cracker" was certainly used
earlier.
. If famed Western cowboy artist
Frederic Remington didn't actually
coin the title, he certainly perpetu-
ated it by conferring it on Bone
Mizell in 1895. The urbane Reming-
ton traveled from New York City to
Florida that year to paint the
scruffy-looking Mizell astride his
horse. Remington called the paint-


- m


whose hanging hair and drooping
hats and generally bedraggled
appearance would remind you at
once of the Spanish-moss which
hangs so quietly and helplessly to
the limbs of the oaks out in the
swamps. They had on about four
dollars' worth of clothes between
them, and rode McClellan saddles,
with saddlebags, and guns tied on
before."
One of them was Bone Mizell.
Born in Horse Creek, Florida in
1863, the eighth of 12 children, his
father Morgan Mizell was a great
admirer of Napoleon Bonaparte.
He named his son, Morgan Bona-
parte Mizell."
It was not by accident that Fred-
erick Remington immortalized
Bone. The artist recognized that
cracker cow-hunters lacked the
glamour associated with the West-
ern variety he'd helped popularize.
He also recognized that Bone's
charisma was his own, that Bone's
fame as a rangeland raconteur and
prairie prankster was widespread
and well deserved.
"Ornery, tough and an incur-
able joker," wrote Jabbo Gordon, a
noted Florida historian and news-
paperinan, in the 1970s. "Bone
Mizell left his mark, however dubi-
ous, on the pages of Florida history.
In time, he may prove to be Flori-
da's best known, if not most typical
cowboy."

At that time, Florida's typical
cowboy was described as lean,
mean and laconic. Bone was lean,
mean and loquacious faulted at
times for being too funny, too frol-
icsome, too fractious.
He went on to describe them as
"picturesque in their unkempt,
almost unearthly wildness."

Honda to park in new Gardens driveway


The Honda Classic has been
kicking around South Florida, most
recently being played at The Coun-
try Club at Mirasol in Palm Beach
Gardens. This year's Classic has
found a new home, across PGA
Boulevard at PGA National Resort
and Spa's Champion course.
The Champion course is no
stranger to big matches, having
played host to the Ryder Cup in
1983, the PGA Championship in
1987 and several PGA Senior
Championships.
North. Palm Beach's Golden
Bear, Jack Nicklaus has made
some changes to the course to
enable it to do battle with the
Tour's big hitters. Several hundred
yards have been added to push
several of the tee boxes back.
Throw in some trees and a few
extra bunkers and the "Champ"
will play to 7300 yards as a par-70.
The rough will be grown in and the
greens are expected to be stimping
at 11. If the wind is blowing, the
best players in the world can
expect to have their hands full.
The Golden Bear will have his
paw print all over this event. The
Bear Trap, holes 15, 16 and 17 are
dubbed three of the most feared
holes in golf and will provide a
great vantage point for the fans.
According to Ken Kenrierly, Execu-
tive Director of the Honda Classic,
"There are eight holes within a
short walk of the resort, making it
real easy for the fans to see all the
action."
Jack and Barbara Nicklaus are
also very involved with the benefit-
ing charity, the Nicklaus Children's
Health Care Foundation. According
to the PGA Tour, the Nicklaus Chil-
dren's Health Care Foundation is a
non-profit foundation established
to provide charitable support for
activities that advance and


enhance the diagnosis, treatment
and prevention of childhood dis-
eases and disorders. The founda-
tion also supports not-for-profit
programs and projects aimed at
pediatric health care and health-
related services. The Nicklaus Chil-
dren's Health Care Foundation is
located in West Palm Beach.
Kennerly said, "All major sports
are in the entertainment business,
and this year's Honda Classic will
be providing many entertainment
options in addition to great golf."
The Honda Classic is launching
a spectator experience program
designed to provide a much
enhanced entertainment experi-
ence for people of all ages and
interests, including: an 11,000 sq ft
fan zone including swing analysis,
inflatable games, a rock wall,
magic shows, face painting and
synthetic putting greens; after play
for entertainment Thursday
through Sunday; the MetroPCS Fan
appreciation day (Saturday, March
3) including after play entertain-
ment and a fireworks spectacular
(approximately 7 p.m.); the Play
Golf America Expo providing spec-
tators opportunities to hit the latest
golf equipment and get game tips
from club professionals; and The
FPL Pavilion and Heineken Terrace

The 2nd hole of the Champion course awaits the best golfers
in the world.


providing those with a general
admission ticket a taste of hospitali-
ty with upgraded food and bever-
age options, flat screen televisions
and high end decor.
The Honda Classic will provide
plenty of entertainment options,
but the bottom line will still be the
golf. Defending Champion Luke
Donald will battle the best golfers
in the world for the top prize of
$990,000.
If you want to go and enjoy the
event, there are many ticket
options available. The Classic Pak
($75) provides access for each day
and offers discounts on merchan-
dise, golf and lodging at PGA
National. Ticket for The Bear Trap
are $200 for a single ($760 for a 4-
pack and $75 for a 10-pack). The
Champions Club includes food
and beverage and will cost $4,500
for a 4-pack or $8,000 for a 10-pack.
Individual tickets are $15 on Tues-
day and Wednesday, $25 Thursday
and Friday or $35 Saturday and
Sunday.
The Honda Classic will be


played February 26 through March
4. For tickets and additional infor-
mation call (866) 8HONDA8 or visit

Family pets can transfer diseases to humans


COLLEGE STATION If
you're feeling bad and think
you're sick as a dog, you might
have put your finger on the
cause.
There are more than 200 dis-
eases that can be transferred
from animals to humans, and
even man's best friend can be
unfriendly when it comes to
staying healthy.
From Petey the parakeet to
Roger the rabbit, almost every
animal is capable of passing
some type of disease or sickness
to humans. Dr. Leon Russell, a
veterinarian in Texas A&M Uni-
versity's College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
who teaches a course on the
subject says, ailments range
from near harmless to down-
right deadly.
The technical term for such a
transfer is zoonosis, which
means any disease that is com-
municable from animals to
humans.
"Most of those 200 or so dis-
eases that can be passed to
humans are fairly rare and don't
occur much in the United
States," Russell says. "But there
are a few dozen that are very
common and can even be
killers."
One of the worst: salmonella.


It's a bacterial disease found
in poultry and eggs and
uncooked meat. Worldwide, it
kills thousands of people every
year but can be one of the most
preventable, Russell says. Its
bacterial cousin-campylobac-
ter-can also be acquired from
poultry, but young puppies have
been known to pass the disease,
Russell confirms.
"If you cut up chicken and
then use the same knife to cut
the bread or salad, you're asking
for trouble," Russell believes.
"And it's best to clean off a cut-
ting board you're using, too.
Just one drop can make a per-
son very sick."
"Also," he adds, "you must
wash your hands after handling
raw meat or poultry to prevent
transfer of these bacteria to
other food items."
Snakes and other reptiles are
capable of passing salmonella,
too, he says. "If a youngster has
handled a snake or other reptile
and then eats without washing
his hands, it give salmonella an
open door to invade the body,"
he says:
Being pregnant is not the
best time to be cleaning out the
cat's litter box, either.
Russell says toxoplasmosis is
sometimes passed from cats to


humans and can harm a
woman's fetus during pregnan-
cy, possible leading to birth
defects. "It's best to let someone
else change the kitty litter if
you're pregnant," he advises.
"Eating uncooked meat, such
as pork, mutton or beef, is
another way of transmitting tox-.
oplasmosis," Russell believes.
Cows-and dogs-can pass
along leptospirosis to their own-
ers. It affects the liver and kid-
neys and can become very seri-
ous. It can be similar to
infectious viral hepatitis in
humans, Russell points out. Ani-
mals urinating in surface water
such as ponds, tanks or even
small puddles is a hazard, he
says.
Brucellosis can also be
passed from cattle to humans,
and although it 'is not as com-
mon in the United States and it
used to be, other countries still
are dealing with the problem. It
often comes from impure raw
milk and can cause a high fever
and affect bone development.
Children who ingest dirt that
is used by dogs who have
roundworms can get round-
worms and can get ill, and
hookworms from an uncovered
cat's sandbox cause skin lesions
on humans, Russell adds.


Cat Scratch Fever is not a
myth-it's real and when kitty's
claws come into contact with
skin and blood, it can result in
flu-like symptoms and swollen
lymph glands, Russell says.
"Nationally, about one per-
cent of all emergency room hos-
pital admissions are due to ani-
mal bites or scratches," Russell
explains. "That figure may
sound low, but it adds up to
between one and two million
people a year."
The dreaded disease of rabies
has been around for hundreds
of years, and skunks and solitary
bats are the most frequent carri-
ers, Russell says. The best
advice: "Use common sense
and stay away from wild ani-
mals, and if you see a bat on the
ground or a wall, leave it alone.
And remember that rabies is
transmitted by animal bites, not
by skunk scent or flying bats."
If you're a bird lover, watch
out for histoplasmosis. It comes
from bird droppings that are
often seen on the sidewalk or on
cars, and if you inhale it long
enough, it causes conditions
that resemble tuberculosis, Rus-
sell says, and can become very
serious.
And parakeets can give
humans, Psittacosis, commonly


called Parrot Fever, which can
cause flu-like illness and eventu-
ally may affect the heart and
lungs.
The Easter bunny can be soft
and cuddly, but if it is a wild rab-
bit it is capable of passing along
Tularemia, which causes skin
lesions, high fever and swollen
lymph nodes, Russell says.
Ticks on animals can make
them sick and the results can be
transferred to humans in the
form of Lyme disease or Rocky
Mountain Spotted Fever, both of
which can be deadly. Russell
says Lyme disease starts out as a
skin rash, evolves into condi-
tions resembling arthritis and in
its final form, can cause serious
neurological problems.
Deer ticks have been known
to pass along Lyme disease and
dog ticks spread Rocky Moun-
tain Spotted Fever to humans,
Russell notes.
Horses can develop Equine
Encephalitis and the same mos-
quitoes can pass it to their own-
ers. Although horses and
humans can be victims of mos-
quito transmitted Encephalitis,
horses do not directly transmit
the disease to humans, Russell
points out.
Most moms know a young


kitten or dog can have ring-
worms, a skin ailment that while
not usually serious, can be
extremely unpleasant.
Ferrets can be cute and play-
ful, but some have a nasty habit
of biting small children which
can cause various types of infec-
tion, Russell says.
And what about the reverse?
Can animals get diseases from
humans?
"Tuberculosis can be passed
both ways-from animals to
humans and vice versa," Russell
explains.
"If people use common
sense, they should not have
much to worry about when it
comes to animal diseases.
Washing your hands after han-
dling animals and pets, not kiss-
ing dogs or cats near their
mouths, treating bites effective-
ly, keeping clean litter boxes and
bird cages-all of these things
can go a very long way in easing
any worries an animal or pet
owners might have," he adds.
