Existing home
sales rise
WASHINGTON -Sales of
existing homes rose in Janu-
ary by the largest amount in
two years, raising hopes that
the worst of the severe
slump in housing may be
coming to an end. Median
home prices, however, fell
for a sixth straight month.
The National Association
of Realtors reported Tuesday
that sales of previously
owned homes rose by 3 per-
cent last month, the biggest
one-month increase since a
3.3 percent advance in Janu-
ary 2005, a time when hous-
ing was roaring toward the
peak of its five-year boom.

Salvation Army honors volunteers


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
For the past 10 years, an
army has invaded Okeechobee
during the weeks between
Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Salvation Army volunteers
have been ringing their bells in
front of local businesses solicit-
ing contributions.
This past Saturday evening,
Feb. 24, Augie Carlino, Salvation
Army service extension director
from Tampa and Kip Gardner,
chairman of the Christmas ket-
tle program hosted a dinner at
the Okeechobee Masonic
Lodge honoring the 2006 bell
ringers.
The mission statement of the
Salvation Army states that the
organization exists, in part,
"...to meet human needs..."
One of the main ways of financ-
ing the meeting of those human
needs is through donations
placed in the red kettles found
outside of local stores at Christ-
mas time.
The 2006 Christmas kettle
program in Okeechobee raised
a total of $24,107. Most of that
money will remain in Okee-

was found to be in possession of a
.12-guage shotgun and a 9mm
semi-automatic handgun he is also
facing a weapons charge, said
Detective Harris. Jorge is being
held on a bond of $210,000.
The first home was found when
a GCSO deputy doing security
checks in the Port LaBelle area just
off S.R. 80 noticed a strong odor of
marijuana coming from a home at
4880 Warm Court. The deputy noti-
fied the department's Criminal
Investigation Division, which
began investigating the -home. A
search warrant was obtained and
the new $200,000 home was raid-
ed.
"It was good, aggressive police
work," said the detective of the
deputy's find. "He was doing his
job."
Inside the three-bedroom, two-
bath, concrete block home investi-
gators reportedly found 12 grown
marijuana plants and about 39
pounds of processed pot. Detective
Harris estimated the street value of
the processed pot to be about
$160,000. The plants are estimated
to be worth about $1,000 each.
About one-half pound of mari-
juana buds were also found in a
2005 Toyota SUV parked outside
the home, said the detective.
While working on this warrant,
investigators found a second sus-

pected grow house in the same
area at 16880 Saturn Circle. When
a search warrant was executed,
Detective Harris said they found 65
pot plants being grown.
This house, he added, was simi-
lar to the first home they raided in
that it was a new home worth
about $200,000. And like the other,
it was a three-bedroom, two-bath
home with a double-car garage. It
was just sold a couple of months
ago and Jorge is on the mortgage.
However, added Detective Harris,
someone else's name is on the
electric bill.
At the first home, he continued,
the power had been diverted
because the underground lines
had been cut. The carpet had been
removed, and there was a lot of
damage,to the home, added the
detective.
Because of this, the GCSO
won't seize the homes.
"We won't seize the homes
because there is too much owed
on them," he said. "The first had
two mortgages on it. We won't
take it because there's no value in
it."
Whoever owns the homes will
have to make the repairs before
they can be sold again.
As of now, Detective Harris said
the cases will be prosecuted at the
state level. But, he continued, if
these cases can be linked to other
growers or an organization they
could possibly be prosecuted at the
federal level.

4 OPINION The Okeechobee News, Wednesday, February 28, 2007


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.com/forum58. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as you
would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or pro-
fanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our Speak
Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or send-
ing e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submis-
sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
HOUSING: Regarding the proposed complex on 15 acres in the city,
when this project is complete how many workers, including their fami-
lies, will be housed there?
Editor's Note: That's hard to say because there is no way to know
who or how many people will buy a home there.

TAXES: I read where a woman spoke about taxes on food. My opin-
ion is that food is food, and there should be no tax on cold or hot food.

DANCE: Yearling Middle School always has school dances but Osceo-
la hasn't had any and as far as I know isn't going to have any. I don't think
that is fair.
Editor's Note: We spoke with school officials who said the school will
be hosting a spring social on Friday, March 9, from 3:30 until 5:30 p.m.
This is not a formal dance, but there will be music and dancing.

CATS: As adorable as kittens are and as much as I love cats, I have to
say that I was disappointed by the photograph showing a female cat with
one of her four kittens. The photo text also stated that the third cat had
four kittens as well. All too many irresponsible people do not have their
pets spayed or neutered and allow them to roam the streets. A cat will
produce a litter of three to four kitteps each year. This leads to thousands
of cats being euthanized by shelters all over the United States, or many
cats winding up on the streets adding to the feral population. This feral
cat problem leads to disease and unaltered cats keep the cycle of repro-
duction going. This leads to more cats needing homes, more cats on the
streets and more cats being euthanized. People must take responsibility
for their animals by having them spayed or neutered and keeping them
off the streets. To not do so is a great disservice to the animal.

FISHING POLES: They need to put a limit on the number of fishing
poles per person instead of 15 to 20. Some boats look like they have more
legs than an octopus.

LOUD MUSIC: I am interested in how many people in the community
are having trouble with late night parties and music that can be heard a
block away. It seems like it is hard to get something done about this, and
I'm just curious about what can be done.

CANALS: This is about the canals. Are they being worked on or is any-
thing getting done? Ours has not been touched and there's no water in it.
It's just a mess. I haven't had a boat in here for seven years now. It's not
waterfront property anymore and we are still paying high dollar for
waterfront property which we don't have.

BARKING DOGS: I would like to complain about the 50,000 dogs in this
town and the people who don't control their barking dogs. They are bark-
ing all night long and we can't sleep. We have to work. What I want to pro-
pose is that somebody, maybe a medical doctor, invent a medicine that we
can give these dogs that makes them hoarse where they can't bark. Now
that would be a good invention because the alternative is not good. People
have to go to sleep and these dogs continually bark. You need to put a few
bucks into animal control and fewer dollars into the cement factory
because this place is nothing but a big dog pound. It isn't just my block. I
wish somebody would come up with some kind of pill that I could throw
them in a hot dog and hoarse them out where they can't bark.

IMPACT FEES: I read the article on impact fees on new single family
construction and it says that they would be approximately $3,000. In talk-
ing to a local builder, he said it was more like $9,000. Could you find out
what it actually might be, including all the items included in the impact fee?
Editor's Note: The amount of impact fees paid will depend on where
the single-family home is being built. We must stress that the numbers
being discussed are preliminary figures, and are not etched in stone. In
the county, developers will have to pay county fees that are currently
estimated to be $2,432 and school board impact fees that are estimated
to be $3,384. In the city, developers will have to pay those fees as well as
the city impact fee which is estimated to be around $2,500. However,
they will not have to pay a county fire assessment of $336. So, the devel-
oper's total fees in the city limits would be an estimated $7,980. In the
county, the developer's total would be $5,816. But again, these are only
preliminary figures.

BURNING CANE: How long are we doing to allow the cane farmers in
the south of the lake to burn cane and flood us with smoke and ashes? It
seems someone should contact the Department of Environmental Regu-
lations. They are even forcing factories to put stack filters on their smoke
stacks to eliminate the smoke, yet they can burn whole fields down there
and nobody seems to be able to do anything about it.

BLARING MUSIC: I was just wondering if you can shed any light on
people or places having such loud music late at night. After calling the
sheriff's office over six times, and being told that they have had a large
amount of calls, it still goes on. Is it wrong for wanting to have a decent
night's sleep or a nice dinner with your family without being blasted out
of your chair?

Letters to the Editor


The main
stream media
Anybody watching the main
street media that's all of them,
with the exception of Fox News -
should have figured out by now
they are anti-Bush and liberals.
To those of you who were
brainwashed over the last several
years, and voted to allow the


Democrats to win the majority of
congress, I hope you realize what
you have done. I am speaking of
the possibility of ending up with
lifetime liberals on the U.S.
Supreme Court. May God help us.
As an example of brainwash-
ing, let's examine the nightly
news and daily newspaper
reports on combat deaths in Iraq.
There are 2,537 deaths in four

years of war that's 634 yearly,
107 deaths a day- out of 130,000
troops in Iraq.
That's still very tragic. I honor
their sacrifice.
Now, let's put these figures in
perspective. In this country there
are 14,000 murders every year -
38 every day 22 times that of
Iraq. There are 43,000 deaths in
auto accidents 117 a day 68


times that of Iraq.
The murder rate in Detroit and
Washington, D.C., is higher than
in Iraq. Why aren't these figures
in the headlines? Interesting, hey?
Somehow I can't help com-
paring the media with a book I
read a few years ago. It was the
rnemoirs of Hitler's propaganda
minister, Joseph Goebbels.

art works to

be exhibited
FORT PIERCE The brilliant
colors and swirling movement
characteristic of the works of
Nicholas Morosoff, will be evident
in an exhibition of his drawings
and paintings at Indian River Com-
munity College (IRCC) opening
Thursday, March 1.
The exhibit will provide a histor-
ical context for the internationally
recognized artist and explores his
works as a significant 20th century
painter who studied under Kandin-
ski in Moscow in the 1920s.
"Morosoff's work shows an
amazing use of color and form dis-
tilled from his exposure to the
French and Italian art movements
of the early 20th century. We feel
exceptionally fortunate to be able
to offer this exhibition to the pub-
lic," said Linda Waugamann, IRCC
assistant professor of art.
Morosoff left his native Russia in
1925 in pursuit of artistic freedom and
traveled to Europe absorbing diverse
artistic influences. He spent two years
studying Byzantine mosaics in
Ravenna, Italy, showed his work in
Florence, and moved to Paris in 1931.
His first one-man show after the war
was held at the Galerie Bosc in Paris,
generating critical praise.
The opening of the show will be
held from 6 until 8 p.m. on Thurs-
day, March 1, at the IRCC Art
Gallery at the main campus, oppo-
site the Wynne Black Box Theatre,
3209 Virginia Ave., in Fort Pierce.
Refreshments will be served.

Bike Night documentary to be filmed


By Sam Vuleta
Special to the Okeechobee News
Southern Bike Night Live TV
documentary to be filmed in Okee-
chobee on Tuesday, March 6, start-
ing at 6 p.m. A great noise and rum-
ble was heard from the streets of
Okeechobee that made its way to
the east coast.
Big Easy Media Productions
caught wind of the hundreds gath-
ering at Beef O'Brady's on Tuesday
in Okeechobee. Owner Greg Giles,
Steve Geary and Sam Vuleta of
Splinter Productions dreamed that
Tuesday Night Bike Night would
grow into something phenomenal.
It all started small with good
food, good friends, good music,
and a good time. But all who attend
are finding out there is a fast grow-


ing sub-culture of leather, chrome,
monstrous machines of steel and
metal with sounds like something
from a Hollywood futuristic movie.
All who come out see a different
world. People from all walks of life
from the doctors, lawyers, and con-
struction workers to the beauty
queen have come out to enjoy
themselves.
Both men and women riders
have found a little haven of rest to
release the stress of the work week.
On Tuesday nights, Greg says,
"We started Bike Night to give peo-
ple something to do and see it takes
their minds off the normal work
day. Everyone from the kids (who
eat free) to the working parents
and grandparents can come and
find something to do and see."
Splinter Productions along with


Marc Sandlin of Styles Studio Custom
Bike Shop arrange the nightly festivi-
ties. Kicking off the night at 6 p.m., live
music rolls from the stage as the band
"RedTyde" cranks out the old-time
lyrics. Throughout the night cash and
prizes are given away to help support
the local non-profit organizations.
Vendors show up early to set up
their spots of leather, T-shirts, sun-
glasses and jewelry. The infamous
burn-out-pit contest is sponsored
by Treasure Coast Harley-David-
son. Owner, "Big Jim" challenged
the crowd of on-lookers, "whoever
can get their bike in six gears and
smoke the tires can have a new
one free." From the crazy to the
brave, they line up one-by-one.
After four attempts by others the
master of mayhem, Chuck Morris,
asked the group to move over. Six


gears later as his speedo pegged at
210 mph standstill you could smell
burning rubber as it filled the air.
The smoke was so thick you could-
n't see through it. When the smoke
finally cleared there was no doubt
who was the winner that night.
Splinter Productions and Big
Easy Media Productions invite you
and your family to come out for the
taping of this TV series. Come and
join the bike night family. You
won't be disappointed.
Big Easy Media will also be film-
ing Okeechobee's very own "The
young Brando Baughman" and his
latest creations. This young man is
headed for the top as one of Flori-
da's youngest custom bike
builders.

at (863) 634-8980.

"A play like this one just doesn't
come along often enough," says
Okeechobee Theatre coordina-
tor/director,.Ron Hayes in referring
to the OCT's latest offering, "Dearly
Beloved," which opens this Friday
evening for a four-night run.
"This is truly one of the funniest
plays we've done in our twenty-
eight years," he says. "The best
thing about it, though, is that it is.
not just another TV-style sitcom.
The humor comes from people
doing just what real people do, so it
gives the audience a chance to
laugh at folks they know, and also
at themselves. It even includes
some great live southern gospel
music along the way."
Reserved seat tickets to the
show are currently on sale at $10
each at the Chamber of Commerce
office, and will also be available at
the theatre, on S.W Second Ave. at
Seventh St., behind Golden Corral
restaurant, on the nights of per-
formance. The play will be present-
ed on Friday and Saturday evenings,


March 2,3,9 and 10 at 8 p.m.
"Dearly Beloved" centers
around a Texas family which is
preparing for the wedding of one of
their twin daughters to the son of
"what passes for high society" in
their small home town. Things
begin to go wrong when the local
minister becomes unable to con-
duct the ceremony, and a young
seminary student is pressed into
service to perform his very first
wedding. The mother of the bride
learns, to her horror, that her sister,
who handled the arrangements for
the reception, has made it a pot-
luck affair, with wedding guests
contributing a covered dish.
Worst of all, the bride and
groom have both disappeared just
before the nuptials are to begin,
and a Texas state trooper is sent out
to try to find them. To stall for time,
the resourceful wedding coordina-
tor trots out anyone she can find
with any talent to try to keep the
unsuspecting guests in their pews.
Making these characters come


alive is a cast of performers that,
Hayes says, are absolutely perfect
for their roles. Among those return-
ing from previous productions is
Paul Buxton, of Buxton Funeral
Home, who played the part of the
small town preacher in the OCT's
presentation of "Dearly Departed,"
an earlier play by one of the same
writers, back in 2000. Louise Chan-
dler, of Diamond R Fertilizer, and a
veteran of a number of OCT plays,
also appeared in "Dearly Departed."
Paulette Wise, manager of the
South Branch Office of Bank of
America, appears once again, fol-
lowing her role in "The Cemetery
Club," several seasons ago. Terry
Auriemma, canteen manager at
Okeechobee Correction Facility,
returns to the stage for the first time
since "Damn Yankees." Okee-
chobee High School senior, Cassie
Chesley, is back again in the dual
role of twins, after her performance
in this season's musical, "The
Melody Lingers On." Second grade
teacher, John Van Wormer, is also


making his second appearance
with the OCT, having appeared in
the fall musical.
First time performers with the
OCT include James Garner, who is
part owner of Shoreline Alu-
minum; His brother, John Garner,
who is church administrator for
More 2 Life Ministries; John's wife,
Laurie Garner, interim director of
the Pregnancy Center of Okee-
chobee; school teacher, Joyce Tay-
lor, and Pam Chesley, who works in
the travel and tour business.
The Okeechobee Community
Theatre is an all-volunteer organi-
zation of talented people who
enjoy producing Broadway-style
comedies, dramas and musicals
for local audiences. It is affiliated
with the Florida Theatre Confer-
ence, and the American Associa-
tion of Community Theatre. Any-
one interested in more information
on this show, or on how to partici-
pate in the group's productions,
may call Ron or Jacque Hayes at

100th Book Challenge Read!
Read! Read! The school goal for
this week is 231 steps. Remember
to sign the log for every 15 min-
utes your child reads.
Math Students are working on
addition and subtraction facts.
Here are some cool math web-
sites you can checkout with your
child at home or at the public
library:
www.funschool.kaboose.com;
www.playkidsgames.com Also,
you can practice math through
the daily routines done at home.
While you are cooking add ingre-
dients to prepare meals. In the
garden use leaves, rocks, or sticks
to subtract. Remember learning
can be a fun experience you share
.with your child!!

Second grade news
Second graders are busy at
work conquering the clock. Yes,
we are at that place in the year
when we learn about time. Sixty
seconds in a minute, sixty min-


utes in an hour, twenty-four hours
in a day...so much to learn. Our
second graders have also learned
how quickly time flies when you
are having fun.
February is a packed month
full of lessons to be learned. Each
class has taken some time to
study the presidents that have
made our country great. The
classes have also studied many of
the important African American
leaders that inspired change in
our country. We wish the upper
grades good luck on the upcom-
ing FCAT tests.

Fourth grade news
In Mr. Goff's class we are still
working very hard to memorize
our multiplication facts. We
already have seven students who
can pass their hot pencils multipli-
cation test with 100% accuracy
every time they take it. Several
more students are also very close
to doing it. In math we have fin-
ished chapter one, which deals
with long division and dividing
with remainders. In science we
are learning about rocks. We are
studying the rock cycle as well as
the different types of rocks. The
students are also learning the
process that scientists use to clas-
sify rocks. In reading we are tak-
ing a break from the text book
until after FCAT. We have been
focusing on the skills needed to
score well when we take the
FCAT test. We are also working
hard on meeting our Accelerated
Reader goal.
Ms. DelPrete's class is ready for
the FCAT. We are going to do our
best. Ms. DelPrete is proud of how
hard her students are working on
completing homework assign-
ments. Thank you to the parents
who are looking at and signing


the agendas everyday. Students
keep working on your AR goals. If
you're going to Golden Corral you
have till March 6, to meet your AR
goal. Read, Read, Read! Congrat-
ulations to our Recent Students of
the Week- Allen Perry and
Thaddnesha Roberts.
General Fourth
Grade news
Fourth Graders at Central are
ready and anxious to begin FCAT
this coming week. Each class has
reviewed test taking strategies
and worked their best to review
different tasks in math. Students
have enjoyed a great six week
rotation going to every other
teacher for Math Extravaganza.
Mr. Goff has become the Area and
Perimeter Man and Mrs. Jones is
very 'mean' as she worked with
math vocabulary. Mrs. DelPrete
worked with fractions, Ms. Maur-
er worked with geometry and
Mrs. Pritchard was the "Equiva-
lent" between decimals, frac-
tions, and percent. Mrs. Ramirez
worked with number operations,
place value and data analysis. We
hope the students will have that
'extra' push to remember what
they have learned and place that
knowledge into their assessment.
Parents, please remember that
your child needs rest this week-
end!
Fourth graders will begin
working with Science Fair Pro-
jects and Tropicana Speeches
once FCAT is over. School does
continue once FCAT is finished.
Most of the teachers will be going
back over chapters in geometry
and fractions as well as division to
make sure mastery is accom-
plished in all areas.
The students had a great time
at the Brighton Indian Reserva-

Seminole Elementary School fifth grade teacher Mrs. Coldiron (back) shows her support
for her students (left to right) are: Hayley Palmisano, Jessica Thornton and Serena Pad-
gett at their FCAT cook out to celebrate all their hard work prior to FCAT testing which
began on Monday, February 26, and will continue throughout the week. Students will be
taking the FCAT reading and mathematics and NRT reading and mathematics.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?
