Woman dies in
turnpike crash
A 55-year-old Lake Worth
wdman was killed in automo-
bile crash on the Florida Turn-
pike near Fort Drum on March
17. According to the Florida
Highway Patrol report, Maria
Caballero was northbound in
the inside lane when she lost
control of her vehicle. Her 2000
Nissan Pathfinder traveled onto
the center median, then back to
the inside northbound lane,
then slid sideways onto the
median where it started to over-
turn. The vehicle flipped over
the guardrail and onto the
southbound lane,' ejecting the
driver. A southbound 2005 Nis-
san Altima, driven by Delroy
Chambers of Port St. Lucie, then
collided with the rear of Ms.
Caballero's car. Mr. Chambers'
vehicle then traveled off the
west side of the southbound
lane, landing in heavy brush.
Ms. Caballero was killed in
the accident. A passenger in her
car, Angela Sanchez, 41, was
seriously injured. Mr. Chambers,
63, was not injured, according
to the FHP report. Judith Cham-
bers, 59, received minor
injuries. All of the accident vic-
tims were transported to Rauler-
son Hospital in Okeechobee.

Commission

will consider

land use issues


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Residents of Okeechobee
may soon have an outdoor
recreation area just north of
town.
Several land use issues,
including a recreation area, are
among topics that will occupy
the Okeechobee County Board
of County Commissioners at
their meeting on Thursday,
March 22.
Commissioners will also
consider a request to change
the site of an Okeechobee tradi-
tion-- the Fourth of July fire-
works.
The board will discuss how
to dispose of that portion of the
N.E. 39th Boulevard right-of-
way between U. S. 441 N. and
the new N.E. 39th Boulevard


right-of-way. This right of way
has about 135 feet of frontage
on U. S. 441 N. The unused
right-of way came into being
when U. S. 441 N was four
laned and the N.E. 39th Boule-
vard intersection was realigned
with N.W. 36th Street. The
board can declare the unused
right-of-way to be surplus prop-
erty. Then they could either
solicit sealed bids or auction
the property.
In a land use matter dealing
with recreation, the board will
discuss partnering with South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict in opening the Taylor Creek
Stormwater Treatment Area to
public use. There is a levee over
three miles long encircling the
treatment area. This levee is

be great for bird watchers due to
the assortment of birds attracted

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.

BLUE HERON: Regarding your article on the City Planning Board
meeting of March 15, published in the Okeechobee News, March 17,
there was extensive coverage of the developers' proposal and argu-
ments for the development but there was only one short paragraph
covering the City Planner's presentation against such a development,
and that was vague. Most of those attending were against the proposal
but this was not mentioned. At one time when the developer men-
tioned that Blue Heron residents in the crowd were for it, a boo went
up. On the sign-in sheet by the front door, out of the page of signatures,
only two had signed that they were in agreement. There are some very
serious issues in question here. I hope the paper will especially investi-
gate the traffic problems, both in terms of increased residential traffic
and construction traffic, as well as the impact of increased boating on
the ecology of Augustus Canal and Taylor Creek

RIGHTS: On Thursday, March 13 the article on the front page of the
paper and the whole back page about gay rights and feeling embar-
rassed and abused and all that. What about the heavy set girls and boy?
What about the kids that are not athletic? Everybody feels that at one
time or another. Quit feeling sorry for yourself. Sex education is not
meant for school. I am a parent of children here. I have gay children in
my family and I have straight children. That is behind closed doors. We
do not flaunt it. Grow up, get over it and go one with your life and quit
trying to cram it down everybody's throat. It is not meant for school.

PROUD SPONSOR: Several months ago I was approached about
being a sponsor for the Chobee Starz Cheerleaders. I didn't really know
much about them but I think it is good to give back to the kids in our
community. I saw them perform at the Okeechobee County Fair and
they were awesome. I've never seen anything like that. I am proud to
say I supported your team. Way to go Starz!

SUPPORT APPRECIATED: I'd like to thank all the men and women
who give their time to support the FFA and the 4-H Clubs. They make
such a difference in our community and they really give these kids a
chance to make it in life. It's just great. Thanks a lot.

PAGE ONE: This is to the person who called in complaining about
the school kids being on the front of the paper all the time. Okeechobee
happens to be proud of their school kids. There's no reason they can't
be on the front of the paper.

SHOW RESPECT FORVETERANS: I see on the news where they are
having another protest against the war and I think it is a slap in the face
to every veteran who ever served in the military because without them
you wouldn't have the right to protest. You might be eating something
you didn't like to eat, like censorship, no vote. You'd end up like China
and Cuba doing what you're told and if you don't do what you're told
you get your head chopped off and that would be the end of the story.
So you had better be thankful for the veterans that have served and if
you don't like it why don't you go to one of those countries and try liv-
ing there for a while then come back and see how much you like it
here. Without the veterans you would not have the right to express your
opinions.

CHAMBER MEETING: I was at the Chamber of Commerce meeting
luncheon with Al Stokes who is a wonderful man. He spoke about
being with the Chamber for 30 years and howi e spoke that they were
in the red so deep and that's why he came up with the Speckled Perch
Festival which is true. He did come up with that idea. But as far as taking
it out of the red, it might have for a while but I have heard it has been
back in the red for some years. Why don't they show their books like
Mainstreet shows their books?
Editor's note: When organizations receive funding from the gov-
ernment, they are required to release information on where that fund-
ing goes. The Chamber of Commerce is a private organization, funded
by its members and by special events.

GOD'S CHILDREN: I was thrilled that so many people supported the
young people who spoke out about how they were treated at OHS. It
did take guts to come forth and tell their horror stories of how they were
treated by others. If you truly read the Bible and think that gay people
are damned to hell, then you need to find a new Bible. God made us in
his own image and He loves people; especially those rejected by socie-
ty. Thank goodness that many religions are now accepting homosexu-
als as pastors and members. It's just like years ago when people used
the Bible against black people. Eventually God's truth comes through,
and you will all be apologizing and doing a lot of repenting when you
realize that God does love gay people, and He made them that way. It is
great to see that Okeechobee is at least starting to accept others as they
are; God's children.

Looking Back...
One of the oldest hotels, the Riverside hotel was probably built around the time Okeechobee County was founded; 1917
was photographed in the early 1940s. It was located near the Taylor Creek Bridge on Highway 70. The small building in
front of the hotel was Ira Swindal's grocery. He sold groceries, meat and gasoline. It has been reported that beer and
liquor were also sold there. In the foreground, the railroad trestle over Taylor Creek looks as if it is being dismantled just
south of the highway.

Stocking up pantry makes dinner planning easier


I am a big believer in planning
your menus and knowing what's
for dinner (good thing because I
am the Dinner Diva!), but some-
,times, even best intentions get
thrown to the wayside. Stuff
comes up, things happen, and
you need an alternate plan and
I'm not talking drive thru! What to
do?
Go to the pantry! If you use my
;list, you'll walk away with ingredi-
ents for a quick, satisfying dinner
and if you're able to scrounge up
,a reasonable facsimile of some-
thing resembling a vegetable, it
will even be a balanced meal. But
before we go there, lets build that
pantry, shall we?
Here's a list of stuff I find com-
plete indispensable:
Canned items and jarred
,Items: all manner of tomato prod-
ucts, diced tomatoes, whole
tomatoes, spaghetti sauces, pizza
'sauce, tomato paste, salsas. I
keep a variety of sizes available,
,too.
Canned beans: black beans,
pinto beans, kidney beans, gar-
banzo beans, whatever bean you
can find that you'll eat. It's less
expensive to use dried beans, but
these are still cheap and will work
in a pinch. I'm also fond of
already canned baked beans,
bean dips. You can doctor them
:with a little bacon and some
brown sugar and they taste like
homemade.
Canned fish: tuna, salmon,
crab, clams.
Canned fruit and vegetables:
stock the ones you like and will
use. I have pineapple, apple-
sauce, mandarin oranges, pears,
peaches, whole cranberries, cran-
berry sauce, pumpkin, corn,
lives, roasted red peppers, jars of
tapenade, mushrooms, artichoke
hearts, pesto (tomato and basil),
canned chilies, tomatillos,
anchovies, capers.
Canned soups and broths, etc.:
stock the ones you use. I use a lot
of chicken broth (low-sodium has
more flavor), beef broth, veg-
etable broth and bottled clam
juice. Enchilada sauces (green
and red), jars of gravy (great for
extending what you made).
Canned milk: sweetened con-
densed, evaporated all work
great in baking.
Condiments: ketchup, mus-
tards (yellow, Dijon, whole grain),
pickles (dill and sweet), relish,
mayonnaise, A-l, Worcestershire
sauce, Tabasco, stir fry sauces,
soy sauce (low-sodium, if you can
find), teriyaki sauce, horseradish,
cocktail sauce, Once opened,
store in fridge (except soy sauce).
Oils and vinegars: Vegetable
oils of choice (I like a cold pressed
safflower or sunflower oil by Hol-
lywood), olive oil, sesame oil for
stir fry. All oil will go rancid stay-
ing out. After it is opened it has to
go in the fridge, except olive oil.
White and red wine vinegar,
apple cider vinegar and balsamic
vinegars.
Nut butters and jelly: Peanut
butter (crunchy or creamy),
almond and cashew butters, jelly,
jam and fruit spread or conserve,
honey. My peanut butter needs to
be refrigerated after opening.
Check your label to be sure.

Herbs and spices: To keep the
price down on these spices, go to
a dollar store or Wal-Mart to stock
up as much as possible. You can
also go to a health food store and
buy everything you need from the
bulk jars. This is the best place get
quality spices and be frugal at the
same time, believe it or not. I've
bought the freshest spices at the
health food store for thirty-five
cents each. Basil, thyme, marjo-
ram, rosemary, dill, garlic pow-
der, onion powder, cayenne, red
pepper flakes, cumin, chili pow'-
der, paprika, oregano, ginger,
dried mustard cinnamon, pepper-
corns for the peppermill, nutmeg
and curry powder are in my spice


cabinet because I USE all of them.
I also use sea salt and kosher salt
and have both of those in my
spice cabinet. Only buy what you
use.
Baking center: sugar (white,
brown, powdered), flour (white,
whole wheat, other), cornmeal,
pancake mix, baking powder
(should be kept in fridge after
opening), baking soda, salt, corn-
starch, baking chocolate, cocoa,
vanilla, chocolate chips, nuts,
baking mixes (cake, brownie,
etc.)
Pasta and rice and grains: an
assortment of pastas that you will
use. Lasagna noodles, spaghetti
noodles, ziti, rotini, fusilli, fet-
tucine, linguineonly what you
use. Boxed macaroni and cheese
(try the natural white cheddar
kinds). Ricel much prefer brown,
but get What you'll use. I've also
got basmati, wild rice and some
blends and mixes. Oats, split
peas, dried beans (white beans,
navy beans, black beans, pinto
beans), lentils, barley, couscous.

Thank you
We, the ladies at Tantie-Quil-
ters would like to thank the com-
munity of Okeechobee for all
their support with our quilt show
this past weekend.
We would like to thank the
Okeechobee News and the Okee-
chobee Times for putting our pic-
tures and information in the
paper. You did a fantastic job of
keeping the word out about the
date and time. You had various
pictures and it was all done with-
out charge to us. Thank you
again.
We would like to thank all visi-
tors to our quilt show. Without
you, it would not have been a suc-
cess. Your participation as a com-
munity is what made the show a
success. Our goal now is to do
even better next year. You set the
bar high.
We had a drawing for a red,
white and blue quilt that all the
ladies had a part in making. The
winner was Bertie-Minich. She
lives part time in Lakeport and the
rest of the year in Freemont, Ohio.
She is a very new member of our


group and we would like to tell
her congratulations. We know
she will cherish the quilt and
remember all of us each time she
looks at the quilt.
We have approximately 30
women who come each Thurs-
day to quilt, sew, and work on
needlework projects. But in the
summertime, that dwindles down
to approximately six. That is why
we are always looking for women
and men to come join us on
Thursday. If you don't know
how to sew or quilt, we will teach
you. If you are an expert at it, you
can teach us.
If we, as a group were to fill
out an application for work, we
would have to check all the boxes
on race, religion, nationalities,
and ages. That is how diverse of a
group we have.
We want to welcome anyone
who is looking for something to
do on Thursdays from 9 a.m. until
2p.m.
Once again, thank you. We
appreciate Okeechobee as our
community and as our home.
The members of
Tantie-Quilters
