Countywide
burn ban issued
Because of continued
worsening of the drought con-
ditions in Okeechobee Coun-
ty, along with the heavy frost
damage to vegetations, a very
high danger now exists for
wildfires.
Okeechobee County has
an overall drought index of
673 as of Friday, March 9, and
parts of the county are higher
with no relief forecast for the
near future. The drought
index is an indicator of the
dryness of the soil and it
ranges from 0 to 800. Condi-
tions are favorable for the
occurrence and spread of
wildfires increase as the index
increases.
A.county-wide burn ban
has been imposed to-include,
but not limited to, campfires,
bonfires, burn barrels and the
burning of yard trash and fire-
works. The ban will be in
effect until further notice,
based upon conditions which
are being monitored.
The Division of Forestry is
continuing to issue burn per-
mits for acreage on a day-by-
day, case-by-case basis.
Violation of the burn ban is-
punishable by a fine not
exceeding $500, imprison-
ment in the county jail for a
term not exceeding 60 days,
or both.
The City of Okeechobee
has also issued a burn ban in
conjunction with the county.
Questions may be directed
to Okeechobee County
Fire/Rescue at (863) 763-5544
during normal working hours.

Child ID program is launched


By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Children's Services
Council, the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office and the
Okeechobee County, School
Board have joined together to
bring the National Child Identi-
fication Program to Okee-
chobee County.
All 7,273 students in grades
kindergarten through 12 will
receive a National Child Identi-
fication Program I.D. Kit to be
taken home and given to a par-
ent or guardian. The kit con-
tains an inkless fingerprint kit,
wallet card and DNA collection
swabs.
The National Child Identifi-
cation Program is a communi-
ty service initiative dedicated to
providing parents and
guardians with a tool to record
the physical characteristics and
fingerprints of their children on
identification cards that are


then stored at home.
If law enforcement ever
needs information to aid in
finding missing children,, par-
ents will be able to easily pro-
vide law enforcement with fin-
gerprints and even DNA
samples.
The American Football
Coaches Association created
this program in 1997 with the
goal of fingerprinting 20 mil-
lion children. Since its incep-
tion, more than 16 million I.D.
kits have been distributed to
families through schools, stadi-
ums, churches and community
events. The goal of the pro-
gram has now been expanded
to reach all 60 million children
in the United States.
The first group of identifica-
tion kits were given out at the
West Virginia/Miami football
game on Sept. 27, 1997. On
that day, the University of
Miami distributed nearly
12,000 of them. That same


year, more than 1 million kits
were distributed at NCAA Divi-
sion I college stadiums..
In 1998, the program was
expanded to the NFL and all
NCAA divisions-IA, I-AA, II and
IIl.
The Florida Sheriff's Associ-
ation and the Florida Associa-
tion of District School Superin-
tendents have teamed up to
create the largest state-wide ID
kit distribution in history. More
than 2.6 million school chil-
dren in kindergarten through
12th grade in Florida will
receive these kits during 2006-
07.
With 800,000 children miss-
ing in the United States each
year, this program will help
law enforcement agencies in
the event of a missing child.
According to the National
Child Identification Program of
the 800,000 children missing,

27 suspected



pot plants



found in van


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was
arrested and booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail earlier
this week following a routine
traffic stop and 27 suspected
marijuana plants were found
in his vehicle.
Arrested Wednesday, March
7, was Kevin Doyle Cassidy,
N.E. 28th Ave. He was booked
into the county jail on a charge
of possession of a controlled
substance. His bond was set at
$10,000.
According to an Okee-
chobee City Police Department
(OCPD) arrest report by Officer


Chad Troutman, the plants
were field tested and indicated
a positive result for the pres-
ence of marijuana.
The plants had an estimated
value of $1,000 per plant,
according to Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) guidelines.
The officer's report states
that he began to follow a silver
and green van after it struck the
center median on Parrott
Avenue as it was making a left
turn onto S.R. 70 W. The van
failed to maintain a single lane
of travel and was stopped in
the 1600 block of S.R. 70 W.,

Officer Troutman states in his
.report that both he and OCPD
:Sergeant Victoria Williams, who
'had been called for back up,

juana coming from the van.
Deputy Donald Ellis from the

called to the scene.
After receiving permission
from Cassidy, the van was
searched. The plants were then
found in the center seat area
behind the front seats. Some of
the plants were in plastic contain-
ers.
Officer Troutman's report
goes on to state that when he
stopped Cassidy, there was a
young juvenile in the van with
him. After the man's arrest, the
juvenile's mother was contacted
and the juvenile was turned over
to her.

TALLAHASSEE-On the first
day of the 2007, legislative ses-
sion, the Windstorm Mitigation
Study Committee published its
final report analyzing mitigation
efforts in Florida, including the
My Safe Florida Home program,
and detailing recommendations
for future efforts to harden
homes in Florida.
The final report can be found
at
http://www.WindstormMiti-
gationStudyCommittee.org.
The committee was created
as a result of House Bill 1A,


join together and distribute the Blue
Ribbon cutout cards and pins for a
donation of $1 throughout St.
Lucie, Indian River, Martin and
Okeechobee County.
Proceeds for this effort will ben-
efit the services of CASTLE, which
has been providing programs and
services to children and families
throughout the Treasure Coast and
Okeechobee County for the past 26
years, with the dream that one day


passed by the Florida Legislature
during Special Session. The
committee was charged with
analyzing short- and long-term
solutions and programs that
address the need to immediately
and effectively harden homes in
Florida. Copies of the report
were delivered Tuesday to the
Governor, Chief Financial Offi-
cer, Senate President, Speaker of
the House and Insurance Com-
missioner.
Specifically, the committee
cited three reasons for the
importance of mitigation in


children everywhere will be able to
live without fear of abuse and neg-
lect.
Ribbons are available at all CAS-
TLE offices. For information on pur-
chasing a blue ribbon, or on volun-
teering to distribute them further,
please contact your local CASTLE
office.

Florida: (1) mitigation helps
reduce property losses from cat-
astrophic storms; (2) homeown-
ers are less likely to be charged
assessments for catastrophic
damage if losses are minimized;
and (3) homes and businesses
that are hardened are eligible for
savings on their wind insurance
premiums.
The committee's recommen-
dations fell into several cate-
gories, including: improving the
My Safe Florida Home program,
considering new approaches to
advance mitigation, implement-


and the prevention of child abuse
and neglect by providing commu-
nity education, support and
resources for parents in need of
assistance. CASTLE facilities are

an River Counties. For further infor-

"Few of the men and
women about us today have
what they want and few want
what they have."
The above words sum up
man as well as any we know.
It's human nature to find our
little world is actually a prison
wall. Within these walls, we must
spend our days -- spend them hap-
pily or resentfully. We gain our
victories, not by assaulting the
walls, but by accepting them.
We accept life by looking at it
in this respect: however uncon-
trollable our past, however dis-
appointing our present, our
future can be what we choose to
make it.
We may seem at times to be
the prisoners of fate, while we
are actually its master.
Our Thought to Remember:
The mastery of life is often just a
simple adjustment.

IMPACT FEE: If an impact fee is needed in Okeechobee County,
wouldn't it be better to phase it in over a five-year period? This way it
would not have such impact on the county's economy.

LAW: The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission had
an article in the paper about limiting the number of poles to three peo-
ple and a possession limit of 15 specks per person and a two-day pos-
session limit. They said this limit includes fish that are in your freezer
and that two filets are equal to one fish. Why are they not enforcing
this? This should be a state law and very strictly enforced. Add a 12-
inch size limit would also be nice.

FEET: This is to the person who wrote in the Friday, March 9, edi-
tion who said you can't use your feet to handle poles with. I can handle
a fishing pole with'my feet. I have to eat with my feet. There are more
important things going on in this world than the number of fishing
poles being on one's boat. I handle fishing poles with my feet because
I was disabled in the war. We have a war going on out there. Stop wor-
rying about the fish and start worrying about people that are getting
killed over in Iraq. This is so silly for people to worry about how many
fishing poles people carry on their boat. I am disabled and I have to
use my feet to eat with and do everything with. So, yes, you can handle
a fishing pole with your feet.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Frank Adams, Pastor
Abundant Blessings
Assembly of God
A Can Do Christian
Life sometimes calls on us to
walk in difficult places. In these
places we need to hear the assur-
ing words of Philippians the
fourth chapter and thirteenth
verse, "I can do all things through
Christ who strengthens me."
These words were written by a
veteran of difficult places yet still
he affirms whatever life may
require I can do it through Christ
who strengthens me.
This veteran of hardship and
difficulty encourages us in our dif-
ficulties by affirming God
strengthens the weak not the
strong. It is our strengths not our
weaknesses that hinder God from
helping. Like the lady trapped in
her car, dangling by the right rear
tire from a freeway overpass
screaming at her would-be res-


cuers "I don't need any help, I
will do it myself." It is very diffi-
cult to help a person who needs
no help. The apostle once again
is a good example as he states "I
would rather boast in my weak-
ness that the power of God might
rest upon me". (II Corinthians
12:9) It is not our weakness, but
our strengths that give God the
problem. Perhaps it is sometimes
appropriate to pray: "Lord help
me to let you help me." God's
power is made available to those
who are willing to acknowledge
weakness. Our strength has lim-
its-God's strength knows no
limits. We can tap into the limit-
less supply of God's strength by
acknowledging the need.
Another truth that we learn
from our veteran of difficulty is
that strength comes through
Christ, by the means of Christ,
and because of Christ. It is Christ
who strengthens us. WE are
strengthened by, from, through

His strength. Ordinary people do
extraordinary things when
strengthened by Christ. It is Christ
Himself who strengthens us.
There are times when no one but
the Lord will do.
As people were huddled
together during a hurricane, an
old preacher was praying with
great oratorical effects in the
midst of the violent storm. Crying
out "Send us the spirit of the chil-
dren of Israel, the children of
Moses, the children of the prom-
ised land." At this, an old man
with less oratory, but more direct-
ness prayed, "Lord, don't send
nobody Come yourself. This
ain't no time for children." There
are times when only the Lord will
do. Thank God He has promised
to personally strengthen us. "He
gives power to the weak, and to
those who have no might He
increases strength. Even the
youths shall faint and be weary
and the young men shall utterly


fall. But those who wait on the
Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings
like eagles, they shall run and not
be weary, they shall walk and not
faint." Isaiah 40:29-31.
Christ strengthens us by
means of His spirit in our inner
man. The veteran apostle prayed
this prayer in Ephesians the third
chapter verse sixteen "That He
(the Father) would grant you,
according to the riches of His
glory, to be strengthened with
might through His spirit in the
inner man."
The strength flowing from
Christ into believers is according
to the riches of His glory. His
glory is inexhaustible a never
ending supply. The result of this
supply flowing to you is that you
are strengthened with might -
your spirit is made powerful, with
dynamism power, which gives
you the ability to do anything and
everything that you are called on

Other Religion Briefs


NEW YORK(AP)- The
Roman Catholic, Southern Baptist
and Methodist churches remain
the largest three denominations
in the country, with the Mormon
church ranking fourth in size,
according to the latest edition of
the Yearbook of American and
Canadian Churches.
The 2007 edition of the book,
which is published by the Nation-
al Council of Churches, an ecu-
menical group based in New
York, tallied statistics collected by
churches in 2005.
The number of Roman
Catholics rose nearly 2 percent
since the 2006 yearbook to more
than 69 million, while the South-
ern Baptists reported 16.3 million
members.
The United Methodist Church
came in third with just over 8 mil-
lion members, but that figure rep-
resents a decrease of 1.36 per-
cent. The Church of God in Christ,


a Pentecostal denomination, was
fifth with 5.5 million members.
Only three mainline Protestant
denominations were among the
10 largest churches. The
Methodists were the largest, fol-
lowed by the Evangelical Luther-
an Church in America, which
ranked seventh with a member-
ship of 4.85 million, and the Pres-
byterian Church (U.S.A.), which
ranked ninth with a membership
of nearly 3.1 million. Still, all three
reported declines.
Pentecostal churches, howev-
er, reported significant growth. As
one example, the Assemblies of
God increased nearly 2 percent to
2.83 million.

Boston Archidocese
hosts fund drive
BOSTON (AP) -The Roman
Catholic Boston Archdiocese
raised $13.8 million in its latest


annual fund drive, the most since
2002 at the height of the clergy sex
abuse scandal.
Donations to this past year's
appeal rose 15 percent over the
previous year a 57 percent
increase over 2002, when income
dropped to $8.8 million, archdio-
cese officials said.
The number of donors has
also rebounded. In 2000, when
$17.2 million was collected,
90,000 people contributed. That
figure dropped to 38,000 in 2002,
then rose this past year to 50,000.
"Clearly, if you look over the
last four campaigns, there is a
strong demonstration of forward
movement and a recognition by
Catholics of the progress that's
taking place across the archdio-
cese," said Damien DeVasto,
director of the Catholic Appeal.
The fundraising drive was for-
merly called the Cardinal's
Appeal, but was renamed after


Cardinal Bernard Law resigned in
2002 as archbishop of Boston.
Unsealed court files showed Law
had moved accused priests
among parishes without notifying
civil authorities or the public.

Cardinal Sean O'Malley was
installed as archbishop in 2003
and quickly settled with hundreds
people who claimed to be abuse
victims.

He too drew protests for a
reconfiguration plan for the arch-
diocese that resulted in the clo-
sure of 62 parishes and some
Catholic schools.

Money raised by the annual
appeal is used to support archdio-
cese operations, religious educa-
tion, youth ministries, clergy and
laity training, spiritual develop-
ment programs, and needy
parishes.

A 'watchdog'

i AC a.


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?

Getting Dressed to the Shoes


Why shoes? Especially lace-up
shoes?
Since starting this group, I have
continually harped on putting your
shoes on your feet each morning. I
want you to do this and you are not,
the exception to the rule. Here is
why. Several years ago I worked for
a direct sales cosmetics company.
One main rule for that company
was that you could not make a sin-
gle phone call in the morning
unless you were totally dressed,
and I mean really dressed! All the
way to dress shoes. The reason
behind this duty was that you act
different when you have clothes
and shoes on. You are more profes-
sional. The customer can tell when
you don't feel good about the way
you look. Even when you think you
do. So if getting dressed makes that
big of an impression on someone
that can't even see you, then what is
going to happen to those that can
see you. Mainly yourself. Putting
shoes on your feet that lace up are
better than slip-ons or sandals,
because they are harder to take off.
Instead of kicking your shoes off for
a quick snooze on the couch, you
actually have to go to a bit more
trouble. Maybe in that short instant
you will realize that there is some-
thing more that you can do. With
shoes on those feet of yours, your
mind says "OK", it's time to go to
work. You have no excuse for not
taking the trash out or putting that
box of give-away stuff into the car.
You are literally ready for anything.
Believe me, when you get that call
from school that your child needs
you, or that dear friend calls up and
says that she needs to talk "can we
have lunch?" you are ready! Includ-
ing shoes. I see this problem more
in the SAHM (Stay At Home Moms)
because often they don't have to
leave the house and it is not neces-
sary to get dressed every morning.
Only their children are going to see
them. I want you to listen very
close. You have the most important
job of all, raising productive adults.
NOW, do you want your children to
remember that Mom didn't get
dressed until it was time for Dad to
get home? Or do you want your
children to have to answer the door
because you are still in your gown
tail and bathrobe? If you would
look at your day just like the Payroll
SHE and realize that the jobs
around the house will take as long
as you let it (all day in most cases
because you allow it) and get off
your "Franny" and get dressed all
the way to shoes. Because it is time
to go to work. There is one other
great benefit to wearing shoes. Two
summers ago was the first time I
successfully did this for more than a
week or two. It was the first sum-
mer time I didn't have cracked and
bleeding heels. Many rewards are
waiting. Now put those shoes on. I
don't want to hear, "Well I don't
wear shoes in my house". Well you
do now, sister! Buy or clean up a
pair just for that reason. It's not
'going to be that you track in the dirt
anyway. You are still boss and you
can require your children to
remove their shoes. What is the
problem here? In most homes you
have had trouble even finding the
floor, much less keeping the carpet
clean. Do you even know what
color it is supposed to be? And
when you vacuum once or twice a
week the dirt goes away. Teach
your children to not track in stuff.
Have a mat outside the door for
them to remove unwanted dirt and
mud. I bet you have 10 pairs of
shoes at the door right now. What
does that do to your vacuuming
schedule? Make the kids take their
shoes outside to clean them up and
then take the shoes to their rooms.


If they had to pay for those expen-
sive tennis shoes they would take
better care of them.

What do I need

to do before making a

purchase offer?

Even before starting to look at houses, find out what prce house you can afford, says
syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to three
times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six factors:


LfCURE, SHADUED ENDLOTi I IV tJZD-. LAKEPURiTf* Ua ..or.-co.- r -.,''IuI I." I- --- . .

* Lenders also analyze your incorhe in relation to your projected cost of home own-
ership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

* Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and inter-
est payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.

* The sum of these costs is referred to as 'PITI." Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
* Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
* Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.
