County ponders subdivision


Preliminary
plat approval for
The Ranch denied

Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Many times the Okeechobee
County Board of County Commis-
sioners routinely grants zoning
changes and preliminary plat
approvals by a unanimous vote
with little discussion. That was
not the case at their meeting on
Thursday, Feb. 8.
Even though the Okeechobee
County Planning Board/Board of
Adjustments and Appeals had rec-
ommended preliminary plat
approval for The Ranch, a pro-
posed 202 lot subdivision in the
northeastern part of the county,


commissioners did not heed their:
recommendation.
The entire property is about
2,800 acres. Individual lots would
range in size from 1.15 acres ,to
over 40 acres. The proposed sub-
division would be equestrian ori-
ented with several practice polo.
fields and riding trials.
What the commissioner
objected to was the fact that the
subdivision is right against the
county line and there is no access
from Okeechobee County. Access
would be from S.R. 60 in Indian
River County.
Fire protection, EMS and law
enforcement would have to go.
several miles outside the county
to reach the proposed subdivi-,
sion. Then there is the problem of
school buses having to go outside
the county to pick up students.
"I don't think so, Mr. Chair-


man," was county administrator
George Long's response to the
proposal.
He said the county had
enough trouble providing services
to outlying areas without having
to go outside the county.
Commissioner Marvin Wher-
rell called the proposed subdivi-
sion "bad arithmetic."
"We need another access," he
added.
After commissioners had
denied the request, developer
Dolph Kahle said he was comfort-
able with the response time for
emergency services. He said with
the subdivision located so far out
the county response time would
be slow at any rate.
He said it was not likely that
school buses would need to enter
the subdivision because the lots
were being marketed as second


Brahman grapplers: District champions


Submitted to Okeechobee News
Members of the 2006-2007 Brahman wrestling team celebrated their second District
Championship in two years as head coach Bruce Jahner (front row, center) displayed
the team trophy. Team members are (in no particular order) Robbie Harrell, Michael
Brishke, Jason Henry, Phillip Valcaniant, Donny Bush, Tyler Hayes, Caleb Smith, Bran-
don Ashley, Corey Krum, Tony Bonnett, Josh Raulerson and Chris Curtis.

Brahman grapplers are champs


The Okeechobee Brah-
mans stampeded onto the
mats last Saturday at South
Fork High Scho.ol to defend
their 2005-2006 District title.
And defend it, they did. The
Brahmans finished the tourna-
ment with 237.5 points, bring-
ing the 2007 District champi-
onship back to Okeechobee.
Their closest competition was
Dwyer High School with 164.5
points; followed by Martin
County with 156 points; Port
St. Lucie with 131 points; Ft.
Pierce Westwood with 119
points; South Fork with 100
points and Treasure Coast
High School with 90 points.
Of the eight Brahman grap-
plers who made it into the


finals, seven returned to Okee-
chobee as champions; one
came in second; two finished
in third and two finished in
fourth.
Those finishing in first place
were Robbie Harrell-103 lbs.;
Michael Brishke-112 lbs.;
Donny Bush-130 lbs.; Tyler
Hayes-145 lbs.; Brandon Ash-
ley-160 lbs.; Josh Raulerson-
189 lbs. and Chris Curtis-
heavyweight.
Caleb Smith took second
place at 152 lbs.
Third place finishers were
Phillip Valcaniant-125 lbs. and
Corey Krum-171 lbs.
Fourth place went to Jason
Henry-119 lbs. and Tony Bon-
nett-189 lbs.


This was the second time
that sophomores Donny Bush
and Tyler Hayes and senior
Josh Raulerson had won in
district competition. Raulerson
won his final match 7-5 by
-defeating a wrestler who had
beaten him twice this season.
Senior Brandon Ashley,
who has only been wrestling
this season, took the title after
battling in a 15-minute match
that contained two overtimes.
The team will head to Palm
Bay on Feb. 9-10 to do battle in
regional competition.
The team is coached by
head coach Bruce Jahner and
assistant coach Todd Jones.


homes and marketed to empty
nest families and retirees.
Mr. Kahle said he was willing
to enter interlocal agreements for
emergency services. He said he
was very proud of his plan that
blended agricultural interests with
conservation.
Before developers can get final
approval, they must resolve the
problem of emergency services,
either through interlocal agree-
ments with either Indian River or
Osceola counties or provided
access from Okeechobee County.
Gene Fulford, property owner
and Synagro Technologies, were
more successful in their request
for a change in zoning from agri-
culture to public service. The
property in question is located
north of Micco Bluff Road and
was necessary in order for
Snyargo to operate a residual


post


management facility on the prop-
erty.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
asked attorney Devin Maxwell,
who represented the applicant,
what the effects on the Micco
Bluff Road would be.
Mr. Maxwell replied that the
impacts would not be too much
-different from the present agricul-
tural use of the road.
"We believe we can build a
facility that is neighbor friendly,
stated Pam Recey of Synagro. She
explained the processing tech-
nique and said that it would be
regulated by the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental protec-
tion.
The proposal passed by a 4 to
1 vote with commission chairman

Someone wrote these words:
"The sugar of life is at the bottom
of the cup." He was referring to
the magnificent era of life known
as growing old.
So many great and wonder-
ful people have achieved their
greatest rewards in their "old
age." Tintoretto painted
"Paradise" at eighty. Tennyson
wrote "Crossing the Bar" at
eighty-three and Titian at ninety-
eight painted his historic picture
of the "Battle of Lepanto."
It is true that we can all not
be shining Apollos in later years.
We can be our age. We can
refuse to grow old and, instead,
grow up.
Thought to Remember: If
we keep mentally and spiritually
young,' life will be better all
about us.

CONGRATULATIONS: I just want to say congratulations to all the
young men on the Okeechobee High School wrestling team. They
were district champions. They deserve our congratulations and good
luck wishes as they head to regionals this weekend for the second year
in a row. Go boys, you deserve it.

TRAINS: I got a chuckle when I read the article about the trains
going through Okeechobee at prime times. I just want to remind peo-
ple that the train doesn't start at one end of Okeechobee and end at the
other end of Okeechobee. It goes for hundreds of miles and it has to go
through somebody's town at noon and 5 p.m. and when schools let
out. They cannot be timed. It's not a computer. It can't be timed to not
come through town when we are waiting. It was just funny. I know it's
an aggravation. It's an aggravation to stand in line at the Post Office
too, but we need to complain to the correct people. I wrote a letter to
the Post Master.

Letter to the Editor


Lock 7 area
is an eyesore
I am writing concerning a
problem that many people of
Okeechobee have encountered
for years.
Lake Okeechobee is a won-
derful natural resource that is
enjoyed by us all. The problem is
that the only facility that accesses
the lake at Lock 7 is pretty sad.


There is only one picnic table and
nothing else. The garbage is
always overflowing and nothing
is kept clean. So instead of being a
place of relaxation and enjoy-
ment, it is an eyesore.
We have the beautiful pier that
was given to us by the Corps of
Engineers, which is used every
day. I, as well as many other tax-
payers that I have spoken to,
would like to see covered picnic
tables, maybe with permanent

barbeque grills and adequate
garbage containers making the
area a place where families can
enjoy the lake while picnicking
and having fun.
My husband and I have taken
our grandchildren there to have a
meal for years while enjoying the
lake. Most of the time the only
table is being used and we have
to eat in the car. We have also
traveled to neighboring lake cities
and all have amazing parks at the


lake. These cities also have a
lower tax base than does Okee-
chobee.
Please take this matter under
serious consideration. Help the
families of Okeechobee that
might not be able to afford recre-
ational water vehicles to be able
to enjoy our beautiful lake by
making this area more family
friendly.

Breast Cancer Rally and golf tournament planned for Feb. 15


Blue Cypress Golf and RV
Resort is taking part in the Rally
for the Cure presented by "Golf
for Women" magazine, a breast
cancer awareness campaign that
is the nation's largest grassroots
women's golf program. In 2005,
Rally for the Cure registered its
one millionth participant in this
important initiative.
This year marks the third time
that the Blue Cypress Golf and RV
Resort has pledged its support
and teed off against breast cancer.
The organizers of this event are
Joyce Smith, and Janie Elliott.
A field of 76 players is expected
to take part in the event at Blue
Cypress Golf and RV Resort on
Feb. 15. As part of the activities, a
closest-to-the-pin contest will be
held at a par-3 hole. Titleist golf
balls bearing the pink ribbon


breast cancer awareness symbol
will be awarded to every player
who hits the green on the first
swing and a prize will be given to
the player whose shot lands near-
est to the hole. All players will
receive important early detection
information, an exclusive Rally
pink ribbon golf pin and will be
entitled to a one-year subscription
to "Golf for Women" magazine.
In addition to "Golf for Women"
and Titleist, Adams Golf and Eton-
ic shoes will continue to serve as
sponsors of the program. All of
the administrative costs of Rally
for the Cure are covered by "Golf
for Women" magazine.
"We are proud to be a part of
this vital, cause-oriented
women's golf program. Together
we are helping to get the critical
life-saving message of early breast


cancer detection out to golfers
and the members of their com-
munities," stated Susan K. Reed,
Editor-in-Chief of "Golf for
Women" magazine. In 2006,
every issue of the magazine fea-
tured a page from Komen with
important breast health informa-
tion in addition to the Septem-
ber/October issue which dedicat-
ed editorial pages to the cause.
Since its inception in 1996, the
mission of Rally for the Cure has
been to emphasize the impor-
tance of early detection in the suc-
cessful treatment of breast cancer
and to support the mission of the
Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer
Foundation to eradicate breast
cancer as a life-threatening dis-
ease. According to the Komen
Foundation, each year breast can-
cer is the leading cause of death


for women ages 35-54, and the
disease also accounts for more
than 75 percent of all cancer
deaths in women 55 years of age
and older.
In 1996, 356 clubs participated
in the Rally program.
In 2005, more than 3,200 clubs
from all 50 states, Puerto Rico, the
U.S. Virgin Islands, as well as
Bermuda, Canada, Egypt, Ger-
many and Mexico, registered to
host a Rally for the Cure event.
The program provides a platform
for volunteer ambassadors to
raise significant funds for the
Komen Foundation. Since 1996
the Foundation received more
than $23 million from Rally events
to support their mission.

Inmates built the Last Chance Ranch


By Nena Bolan
Special to Okeechobee News
VENUS Florida Environmen-
tal Institute (FEI), a rural facility for
juvenile delinquent males in north-
ern Glades County, was founded in
1982. All the buildings on the ranch
were built from the ground up by
the young men who were first
co ml nitted there.
Since then, other youths have
maintained the grounds and added
additional structures. It is not state
of the art, nor is it run down. The
facility is really a ranch that has a
well-used, but well-maintained
look about it.
Most of the adolescent inmates
have gone through other programs
before they reach the "Last Chance
Ranch," which is the nickname for
FEI.
The facility has fostered gradu-
ates who are least likely to return to
their former life of crime. It has one
of the best records for success sto-
ries in the state of Florida; so it is
unfortunate, administrators said,
that one incident last December
has tarnished the reputation of the
ranch, the adult leaders and the
young men who want a chance to
start over.
The incident involved the
escape of three inmates who beat
two guards with baseball bats and
the theft of a vehicle.
All three have since been appre-
hended.
Jimmy Davis, FEI program
director, wants the public to know
that the boys cannot just walk off
the rural campus. There are securi-
ty procedures and visitors must be
escorted onto the ranch from a
locked, gated area. Car keys and
cell phones are locked away too.
Mr. Davis said the public should
feel safe with the measures and he
wants the public to know that it
took an extreme effort for those
inmates to escape.
Regional news sources erro-


INI/Nena Bolan
Everyone takes a turn at housekeeping and laundry at Flori-
da Environmental Institute (FEI), a rural facility for juvenile
delinquent males in northern Glades County. All student
inmates are required to do their fair share. Here, a young
man takes his turn at sweeping the classroom.


neously reported that the Last
Chance Ranch was a boot camp.
FEI has never been a boot camp,
and Jimmy Davis does not know
why it was called that in the news.
The image of a hardcore boot
camp and an escape has hurt the
reputation of juvenile delinquent
success at FEI, he said.
Mr. Davis spoke about the work
ethic and structured life that the
adult leaders teach the young men.
"Our goal is to positively impact
as many lives as we can with a
diverse staff and give them tools
that they can utilize in the commu-
nity or at their job," Mr. Davis said.
Upon taking a tour of their
classrooms, this reporter was
greeted by each student. They
introduced themselves by name.
The simple act took great
courage, administrators said, since
some of them have missed out on
common socialization when they


were children. The greeting and
handshake is an opportunity for
them to demonstrate hospitality
and fellowship.
Currently, there are 25 students
at the facility. The number of stu-
dents in class is small, allowing
more one-on-one work with the
instructor. Computers are used as
well as old-fashioned books and
pencils.
Agriculture studies, animal hus-
bandry and hands on farming are a
large part of the structured curricu-
lum. Students raise and eat their
own meat, eggs, vegetables and
fruit. They are actually able to see
the fruit of their own labor.
Norm Church is the shop and
vocational education instructor
who is supported by South Florida
Community College in Avon Park.
He has been at FEI since its found-
ing in 1982. He teaches carpentry
and construction skills and then


Stop light may be hazardous


Safety Fair to be
held in city park

By Nena Bolan
Special to Okeechobee News
MOORE HAVEN In a town
with only two traffic lights, con-
sideration is being given to doing
awy with one.
The ..Glades County Traffic
Safety Team met on Feb. 1 to
report and discuss traffic citations,
traffic hazards and a well-planned
safety fair for all residents and visi-
tors.
A recurring safety headache is
the traffic light at 10th Street,
which is not a fully functioning
green-yellow-red light. Instead, it
is a flashing yellow light most of
the day. However, during the start
and end of school hours, it is fully
functional and this leads to many
near misses, members of the safe-
ty team reported. Sgt. Kim Hill
mentioned that even traffic offi-
cers get conditioned to the flash-
ing light.
The results under such condi-
tions can be disastrous, Sgt. Hill
said.
"We get accustomed to it
being a flashing yellow light," the
sergeant said. "It has nothing to
do with people being poor driv-
ers. They are conditioned to it
flashing and to not seeing its
cycle."
Suggestions were made to
alter the light to a fully functional
green-yellow-red light. Debra
Stallings, FDOT traffic safety coor-
dinator, said that sometimes a
fully functional light does not
encourage big trucks to slow
down for the red light. The driv-


ers, she said, tend to increase
their speed so they do not have to
gear down and that is when they
might rear-end an attentive driver
who comes to a stop at a red light.
Lucy Papp, an FHP occupant
protection specialist, was present
at the meeting. She mentioned
that many drivers do not remem-
ber the laws about flashing yellow
lights. Some drivers slow down
for them and treat them as they
would a yield sign, while others
come to a complete stop and get
rear-ended. This especially hap-
pens after a hurricane, when traf-
fic lights sometimes malfunction.
Ms. Papp believes they do
more harm than good and she
said her preference would be, "to
eliminate flashing yellow lights."
Sgt. Hill came up with a sug-
gestion since there is a dilemma
with the light and how it is impor-
tant because iis a main route for
school buses. Her idea was to
possibly re-route school buses
and have them use the light at
Sixth Street instead.
This suggestion seemed rea-
sonable to the team and Ms.
Stallings then added that maybe
the light can be taken out perma-
nently. Vice-mayor Dave McGee
agreed.
Jorge Dominguez, school bus
driver coordinator, implied that it
should be looked into. But, he
said he first must speak to his
supervisors and involve the prin-
cipals and the superintendent.
The safety traffic team will put
forth these suggestions to officials
and see if the bus routes can be
altered. Then they will decide if
the traffic light goes, or stays.
Mr. McGee was re-elected
chairperson of the safety team.


Sgt. Kimberly Hill was re-elected
as vice-chairman for 2007.
Law enforcement agencies
will continue targeting speeding
and traffic violations in the mean-
time.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office reported that 438 traffic vio-
lations were cited for the month
of January .Of, those-cited -.239.
were in the city of Moore Haven.
Many of the citations for speeding
happen as drivers pass over the
bridge and travel west through
town.
Sgt. Hill also noted the
increased traffic on C.R.720 that
runs north of the prison. She
mentioned that the bumpy pave-
ment is beginning to crack and
said it may need to be resurfaced.
The traffic team is planning a
big safety fair and is hoping to get
educational attractions like the
rollover vehicle, fatal vision gog-
gles, crash test dummies, child
DNA kits for parents and the Suc-
cess by Six bus.
Plans are also being made for
food sales, a bicycle course and
school bus safety drills. Of course,
all of this is tentative and a lot of
work will have gone into it.
Mr. McGee reserved the down-
town city park for Saturday,
March 17. The fair will be from 10
a.m. until 2 p.m.
Naturally, there is an all points
bulletin out for volunteers. Many
dedicated civil servants already
give their titne for the event, but it
will really work well with more
helpers, members of the safety
team said.
If you are interested in helping
out on March 17, contact Sgt. Kim
Hill at 946-1600 or 946-0353.

the youths can repair or build struc-
tures.
Recently they learned that a
building can be built from salvage
and recycling. Materials from a
structure that collapsed during a
hurricane were donated and used
to build an agriculture structure.
When a teen finishes his stay at the
ranch, he leaves with a certificate
of completion in a building mainte-
nance program.
Residents of Glades County
may have seen some of FEI's stu-
dent inmates at work on school
district projects such as the renova-
tion of the ball fields. This is known
as extended campus and gives
them a chance to serve the com-
munity.
The state of Florida chooses
which youths to send to the ranch.
The average stay is from nine to 12
months. The inmates are also cho-
sen because they have no special
needs nor are they dependant on
medication.
The ranch is a rustic, bare
bones setting.
A new goal for staff and inmates
at the ranch is the construction of a
new team leader building. This will
house the team leader in closer
proximity to the dorm/bunk hous-
es where they spend their
evenings. It will also increase the
leader's ability to supervise and
should heighten security.
The materials for the structure
are estimated to be around $5,000.
The ranch will take part in
fundraising efforts and ask for
donations in order to raise the
funds. The students will furnish the
skilled labor and Norm Church will
oversee the construction. Self-suffi-
ciency is the ultimate goal for
everyone at the Last Chance
Ranch.
Visitors are welcome at FEI. For
more information, call (863) 699-
3785.

Parents denying


I son's


V6


behavior


DEAR ABBY: My nephew,
"Vincent," is 16 and has had prob-
lems with obsessive handwashing
for years. I have enough profes-
sional experience to strongly sus-
pect that he suffers from obsessive-
compulsive disorder (OCD).
My brother and his wife refuse
to believe their child has a problem
and will not take him to get help.
My nephew's hands are chafed
and raw, and his parents repri-
mand him for this behavior when
he really needs professional help.
His mother is the biggest prob-
lem. She nixes all issues that sug-
gest a problem, and my brother
will not stand up to her. What can I
do?-Worried Aunt In Florida
DEAR WORRIED AUNT: Your
sister-in-law may not want her son
"labeled," but ignoring the prob-
lem will not resolve it. And repri-
manding the young man for some-
thing he can't help is cruel.
Your nephew is old enough to
discuss the problem with intelli-
-gently. Start out by asking him if he
thinks he has a problem, and
whether he would like to get help
for it. After all, at his age he must be
self-conscious about his chafed
skin.
If he's agreeable, suggest he talk
to someone at school about it -
preferably the student health offi-
cer or a trusted teacher. If that's not
possible, and there is a free clinic in
your area, offer to take him there.
e DEAR ABBY: I am engaged to
a man I love deeply. I met "Eric"
when I was 14 and he was 42.
When I turned 18, we got together.
I have never been happier, except
for one thing. He has had other
sexual relationships in the past,
while I haven't.
Once we became engaged, he
offered to let me go out and have a
one-night stand. He said he sug-
gested it because he loves me, and
he wants me to have a shot at the
experience I am missing out on.
Abby, I love Eric and only want
to be with him! His suggesting it
has made me wonder if he's look-
ing for a way out by getting me to
find someone new. Any sugges-

tions on how to handle this? -
Inexperienced And Loving It In
Seattle
DEAR INEXPERIENCED AND
LOVING IT: You may be young, but
you are perceptive. Men who love
women usually want an exclusive
relationship. Unless you are con-
templating an "open" marriage to
this man, my advice is to dump
him. You and he have very different
values.
DEAR ABBY: I don't have a
question, but perhaps you'd like to
give your readers a smile.
My late Aunt Isabel's wit was
legendary in our family. We come
from a small town in Connecticut
where many roads are so narrow
that if a car should stall, the car
behind it would be unable to pass.
This is what happened to my
aunt one day. While she was trying
to restart the engine, the driver in
the car behind her began blowing
his horn repeatedly. Aunt Isabel set
the parking brake, got out of her
car and walked over to the driver's
window. When he rolled it down,
she smiled warmly and said, "I
can't seem to get my car started.
Would you be kind enough to start
it for me? And I'll stay here and
blow your horn for you." Joe P.,
Miami
DEAR JOE P.: Thankyou for the
smile, but when I read what your
Aunt Isabel did, my smile turned
wistful. Gone are the days. Some-
one who tried that today would
risk a physical altercation or worse.
