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.
SUNRISE SERVICES: I would like to know if any churches are going to
have a sunrise service. I have seen the announcement about the cantata
but nothing about a sunrise service.
Editor's Note: A community-wide Easter Sunrise Service will be held
Sunday, April 8, at Lock 7 beginning at 6:30 a.m. Each person is asked to
bring their own chair and to assemble near the pier.

TURN LANE: If the large trucks are not passing you on the left, head-
ing west on S.R.70, they run right up on your bumper. I was. blessed. I had
one roll over in the ditch right beside me. He could not stop so he went to
the ditch. I could not go forward and could not turn onto 67th drive. I
always turn on my turning signal at the dangerous intersection sign and
slow down. My question is how many people need to die before they put
in turn lanes?

ROADS: Whoever is supposed to be updating the state road depart-
ment of traffic flow and road conditions is looking at the sky. I want his
job because apparently he's not interested in traffic in and out of Okee-
chobee and through the center of our city. I've been here over 25 years
and it's a topic every year. And every year nothing gets done. Someone
has to request the black hoses across the highway. Who is this person
who is responsible for proper state roads through Okeechobee? Okee-
chobee is miles from any other town, so we get forgotten. We're here so
let's make it known we exist and pay taxes too. Okeechobee deserves
safe roads for residents living here and an adequate state road for coast-
to-coast traffic going through the middle of our city and lives.

NOT PROGRESS: What interest do you have in Okeechobee Estates
or Blue Heron or surrounding areas? Did you invest your money and
years of hard work in a nice home? If you did you wouldn't wonder why
those folks are upset. This is definitely not progress.

DEVELOPMENT: Progress is reasonable housing for everyone, which
is why when the developers told everyone it was condos no one was
upset. Then, the condos turned out to be timeshares. That's like compar-
ing a tent to a mansion. Look in your dictionary; a condo is a unit owned
in a building by one entity, for their use year-round for as long as they
desire. A timeshare is a one week share in a one unit to be used that week
only. First of all, who are they selling these timeshare units to people in
New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, etc., who won't see these units. They will
be shown drawings of a beautiful clubhouse/restaurant/lounge and golf
course located on a wonderful boating and fishing waterway off Taylor
Creek. So when they finally arrive to have their week in Okeechobee, they
see a dried up canal, no restaurants, no shopping malls and over a mile's
drive from the main highway through several subdivisions. Their first
thought will be I was scammed! After a while no one comes and the
empty units become low housing rental apartments so the developer
and owners can pay their mortgage, tax bills and insurance. Progress is
for adequate roads and highways, restaurants, grocery stores, shopping
areas, churches and industry for the working and business people who
are already paying taxes in Okeechobee.

RECYCLING: I live near the Lazy 7 area, and would participate in recy-
cling program. Would they give us those large garbage cans they distrib-
ute in the city? I buy trash cans every two years.

GANGS: If you think Okeechobee has a gang problem now, just wait.

CHOICE: To the few Okeechobee students with hurt feelings, you
have made a choice. Now what you need to do is get the best education
you can and pray for guidance. Believe me, you are going to need both
because it is a tough world out there.

ZONING: Somebody needs to get their facts straight. Most everybody
in Blue Heron is not against the rezoning. There is no problem with traffic
on Eighth Avenue. In over 12 years I've never seen over five vehicles at the
same time on Eighth Avenue and the increased traffic will not affect the
residents of Blue Heron as the traffic won't even be driving in where we
live. Also, the city will lose thousands in tax money. We need a golf course
in town. Even if you don't play you can always enjoy watching others
play. Please let this zoning go through.

COMMENTARY: I just wanted to thank Robert Minsky's commentary
in the paper. I thought I was the only one who didn't know that when you
quit charging property taxes and keep spending more money it has to
come from somewhere. I'm just glad to see that somebody else knows
that too.

SLOWING DOWN: I live on a side road in Okeechobee and I think it is
wonderful that the police are slowing people down.

PICK AND CHOOSE: I have a question about keeping sex out of the
schools and promoting abstinence. Do they put car seats on the bus for
the babies of the students that continue to go to school after having their
child? This is not promoting abstinence and it sends the wrong message.
I like how people pick and choose what sins are more offensive.

GAS PRICES: So now Al Gore is responsible for the gas prices? How
ludicrous! Having retired from the oil and gas business after three
decades, I am here to tell you how wrong you are. When my career start-
ed back in the '70s, I watched fuel prices go up and down like a yoyo. Al
Gore was nowhere around. The retailers (oil companies) use every
excuse imaginable to jack up prices; extremely cold temperatures, hurri-
canes, holiday travel, etc. Every day we were faxed a new list of fuel
prices, and we set our prices accordingly. This is how it's done now and
probably always will be. To summarize, you are running out of people to
blame so get real!

Letter to the Editor


We just
need to act
This is an open letter to all of you
who operate gasoline powered
vehicles and/or equipment.
Are you tired of the fact that no
one in Washington has shown any
interest in holding hearings with the
oil companies to find out how they
can justify their current prices?
Tired of what you know is price
gouging? Tired of their multi-billion
dollar profits? Tired of feeling as
though you can't do anything about
it?
If it were any other industry
except this one, which contributes
so heavily to both Republican and
Democratic parties, Congress
would have been screaming for an
explanation long ago.
There is a way!
The way to force them to act is:
rather than throw away their


requests for money or (heaven for-
bid) contribute, return every piece
of "postage paid" mail you receive
from either party with a note asking
why nothing is being done and that
until they act you will no longer
contribute.
Do the same with those irritating
phone calls you receive all the time.
We can do something. They
need our money! We just need to
act. If other cities hear about it,
maybe they will follow suit.
We have a Congress that simply
does not represent us in this matter.
Remember the Boston Tea Party,
where our forefathers fought
against a lack of representation?
Let's have one of our own.
A simple note might be: until
Congress acts to extremely reduce
gas prices you get no more
money from me.
Thomas F. Jackamore, Jr.
Lt. Colonel, U.S. Army, Retired

The Big Lake Juniors 13-and-
iitnder volleyball team placed sec-
oiud in the St. Patrick's Day Clover-
leat Invitational tournament at the
South Florida Fairgrounds in West
Palmn Beach. Big Lake won four
matches on Saturday and two
more on Sunday to advance to the
tournament final against a tough
Sarasota team. Though the Okee-
(chobee gir4s came out on the short
i.nid of a hard-fought 25-19, 25-21
contest, they improved their state
aniking to second in the latest
I JSAV Florida Region 13 and under
age division.
"I'm so proud of these girls,"
said Beverly May, coach. "We came
[o this tournament with just six
players, and they all played awe-
some for two days. I was a little
it( rvous about coming in with no
sus), but these six are so focused
ai id, of course, they're very talented
100."
TI fis group of seventh graders is
making a habit of winning. After a
ninth place finish in their first tour-
nament back in January, they
picked up a first, second and two
third place finishes in their past four
tournaments, occasionally playing
up in the 14-and-under division.
fIhey currently have a 20-5 season
record.
"There are more than 50, 13-
aiind-under teams in Florida
between Miami and Jacksonville,"
explained Coach May. "For us to be
sitting in second in the rankings is
pretty amazing. These girls have a
bright future in volleyball. They're
so far ahead of where I was at their
age, it's amazing."

LIFESTYLES


March of Dimes needs your participation


Premature birth is the #1 cause
of newborn death. It has reached
epidemic proportions in the U.S.,
endangering the lives of more than
half a million babies. And it's grow-
ing at an alarming rate. That's why
the March of Dimes needs you to
participate in WalkAmerica 2007.
Premature birth can happen to
any pregnant woman, and no one
knows why. Most premature
babies, thankfully, live, but some
will die. Most, thankfully, will even-
tually go home doing pretty well,
but often, that will happen only
after numerous medical crises,
huge medical bills, and lingering
consequences of prematurity.
Sadly, 25 percent of the babies will
go home with serious, life-long
challenges such as cerebral palsy,
mental retardation, blindness,
chronic asthma and other prob-
lems. The March of Dimes is in the
midst of a multi-year, multimillion-
dollar campaign to address this
growing problem. With your sup-
port, the March of Dimes can con-
tinue to fund research and pro-
grams to prevent premature birth
and other threats to babies' health.
Fhis year, however, it appears that
the Okeechobee County WalkA-
merica will fall short of its fundrais-
ing goal. Unfortunately, several
long-established teams, such as the
team-from Raulerson Hospital, are
not participating in WalkAmerica
2007. Also, some area businesses
are feeling the effects of the econo-
my and have scaled back dona-
tions. For these reasons, the March
of Dimes wants to get the word out
that it's not too late to participate in
WalkAmerica 2007, whether it is by
signing up to walk, or donating to a
walker.
Because of those who partici-
pate in March of Dimes fundraisers
like WalkAmerica 2007, the March
of Dimes is able to carry on its mis-
sion to improve the health of babies
by preventing birth defects, prema-
ture birth, and infant mortality. The
March of Dimes carries out this mis-
sion through programs of research,
community services, education
and advocacy to save babies' lives.
Walk for a special child in your life:
a healthy baby, a premature baby,
or a sick one. Walk for all babies.
WalkAmerica 2007 is this Satur-
day, March 31, 2007 and all infor-
mation for participants follows:

The Good Sam Club returns to Okeechobee


The Good Sam Club of Florida is
coming back to the city of Okee-
chobee. We have been holding our
Samborees in Okeechobee since
1978.
Good Sam Club of Florida will
be at Okeechobee KOA Resort
from Wednesday, April 18, through
Sunday, April 22. Early birds will
arrive Tuesday, April 17.
Good Sam is the largest R.V.
owners' club in the world.
Good Samers, as members of
the club are called, pledge to leave
campsites in better condition than
they find them, permit faster vehi-
cles to pass on grades, keep their
RVs in safe operating condition,
assist other RVers when possible
and always wear a smile.
The Good Sam Club, with nearly
two million members offers a wide
variety of services, including RV
emergency road service, reduced
rates at RV parks nationwide, dis-
counts on RV-related equipment,


special group travel and cruise
rates, a special Good Sam credit
card and travel-oriented services
such as mail-forwarding and com-
puterized trip routing. Good Sam
also has discount RV financing and
low cost vehicle insurance. In addi-
tion to enjoying these benefits,
most local chapters help the needy
or improve their community
through volunteer services.
With their good conduct code


for the road and their community
service Good Samers strive to live
up to their name Good Samaritans
of our nation's highways. Members
of the Good Sam of Florida Chapter
are active RVers. We currently have
74 chapters in the state.

Today
in History

Today is Wednesday, March 28,
the 87th day of 2007. There are
278 days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in History:
On March 28, 1979, America's
worst commercial nuclear acci-
dent occurred inside the Unit 2
reactor at the Three Mile Island
plant near Middletown, Pa.
On this date:
In 1834, the U.S. Senate voted
to censure President Jackson for
the removal of federal deposits
from the Bank of the United
States.
In 1898, the Supreme Court, in
United States v. Wong Kim Ark,
ruled that a child born in the Unit-
ed States to Chinese immigrants
was a U.S. citizen.
In 1930, the names of the Turk-
ish cities of Constantinople and
Angora were changed to Istanbul
and Ankara.
In 1939, the Spanish Civil War
effectively ended as Madrid fell to
the forces of Francisco Franco.
In 1941, novelist and critic Vir-
ginia Woolf died in Lewes, Eng-
land.
In 1942, during World War II,
British naval forces raided the
Nazi-occupied French port of St.
Nazaire in Operation Chariot.
In 1953, athlete Jim Thorpe
died in Lomita, Calif.
In 1969, the 34th president of
the United States, Dwight D. Eisen-
hower, died in Washington at age
78.
In 1987, Maria von Trapp,
whose life story inspired the
Rodgers and Hammerstein musi-
cal "The Sound of Music," died in
Morrisville, Vt., at age 82.
Ten years ago: A medical
examiner revealed that some
members of the Heaven's Gate
cult who'd committed suicide in a
California mansion had also been
castrated in apparent pursuit of
the group's ideal of androgynous
immortality.
Five years ago: The Arab
League, meeting in Beirut,
Lebanon, agreed on a peace plan
that offered Israel, normal relations
in exchange for a full withdrawal
from war-won lands and a.Pales-
tinian state. Archbishop Juliusz
Paetz of Poznan, Poland,
announced his resignation, but
also protested his innocence, fol-
lowing accusations he'd made -
sexual advances toward young
clerics. U.S. Air Force- Staff Sgt.
Timothy Woodland was convicted
in a Japanese court and sentenced
to nearly three years in prison for
raping' a woman on the southern
island of Okinawa.
One year ago: Struggling to
revive his troubled presidency,
President Bush replaced longtime
chief of staff Andy Card with budg-
et director Joshua Bolten. More
than 1 million people poured into
streets across France and strikers
disrupted air, rail and bus travel in
the largest nationwide protest
over a youth labor law. The Kadi-
ma Party won Israel's parliamen-
tary elections. Former Defense
Secretary Caspar W. Weinberger
died in Bangor, Maine, at age 88.
Today's Birthdays: Former
White House national security
adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski is 79.
Country musician Charlie McCoy
is 66. Movie director Mike Newell


is 65. Actress Conchata Ferrell is
64. Actor Ken Howard is 63.
Actress Dianne Wiest is 59. Coun-
try singer Reba McEntire is 52.
Actress Tracey Needham is 40.
Actor Max Perlich is 39. Country
singer Rodney Atkins is 38. Actor
Vince Vaughn is 37. Rapper Mr.
Cheeks (Lost Boyz) is 36. Actor
Ken L. is 34. Actress Julia Stiles is
26.
Thought for Today: "Those
who say they give the public what
it wants begin by underestimating
public taste and end by debauch-
ing it." T.S. Eliot, American-
Anglo poet and critic (1888-1965).
