The Gay Straight Alliance has

injunction by U.S. District Court
Judge K. Michael Moore order-

officially recognize and allow


equal access to the controver-
sial club, according to a press
release issued Friday by the
American Civil Liberties Union
of Florida.
The decision requires the
school to "grant official recogni-.
tion and grant all privileges
given to other clubs at the
school."

"\\h'n the lake is so dry
there is exposed lake bottom, a
lot of people for fun take

Moschella, spokesperson for
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conserv.atiori Commission
(FWC). "That is detrimental to
the lake bottom."
"Last weekend there were
reports of hundreds of vehicles
outthere onthie lake," she said.
When the water levels are
low, the areas around the edge


of ili' lake dry out. This allows
seeds that are in the soil to ger-
minate and start to grow. When
the rains come and the lake
returns to normal levels, these
new pl.ints provide essential
habitat for fish.
Ms. Moschella said the small
fish especially need this vegeta-
tion for cover.

said.
Ms. Moschella said she is

ATV's and four-wheel drive vehicles are using the ground around the water's edge of Lake
Okeechobee for mudding. This ground is normally under water, but due to low lake levels
has become a favorite place to play in the mud. The Florida Fish and Fresh Water Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) and the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office are teaming up to
stop the destruction of this valuable land.

"This decision sends a clear

Florida legislature, however, is
considering a bill banning bully-
ing and harassment in Florida
schools that does not protect
these vulnerable students, and,
Okeechobee High School
administrators have sent the
message that their gay and les-
bian students are less deserving
of the law's protection.
"Today's ruling is one more
victory in the road to fairness
and equality in Florida," contin-
ued Mr. Rosenwald.
On Nov. 15, 2006, the ACLU
brought suit in U.S. District
Court against the Okeechobee
School Board and the principal
of O.H.S., after school district
administrators refused to allow
students to hold GSA meetings

on high school property.
On Feb. 28, 2007, a motion to
dismiss by the school board's
counsel was dismissed by Judge
Moore. Since Judge Moore
found that the school board
could be held liable to the GSA
students, the ACLU agreed to
release O.H.S. principal Toni
Wiersma from the lawsuit.
According to the Gay, Les-
bian and Straight Education Net-
work (GLSN), there were more
than 3,000 GSAs registered with
GLSN at the end of 2006, includ-
ing more than 100 in Florida.
The first GSA was formed in
1989 in Massachusetts.

She said those who are driving

"People are going out there,

OMS students of the week
Congratulations to this week's Students of the Week!
This week's students used their honored status to
accomplish something for the school. It seems the stu-
dents did not like the new format for the clocks on cam-
pus, preferring the old digital style versus the recently
adopted analog style, so the Students of the Week bar-
gained for the change. This week's picture is under the
old style before the celebrated change. Students (left to
right, standing) Farah Elhindi, Amanda Lamberti, Ashley
Savage, Melissa Floyd, Wesley Mims, Ross Green, Josh
Boggs; (seated) Kenneth Scavone and Don Dietrich.

The story is told about the
famous French tightrope walker
who was preparing to walk
across Niagara Falls on a
tightrope.
"Do you
believe I can
walk across
these falls?"
he asked a
bystander.
"Yes, was
the reply.
Do you
believe Ican
carry a man
oBy Paul on my sheul-
S o ders?' he fur-
Buxton their inquired.
"Yes, I do,"
the man stated.
"Would you be the man to ride
on my shoulders?" he asked.
"No, not me!" the man
emphatically replied.
Faith, sometimes, is a strange
thing. Like the man and the
tightrope walker, it takes on a
different meaning when it
involves us personally. We often
believe in great achievements and
ideals, but we do not want to be an
actual part in their accomplish-
ments. Great faith is that which is
supported by our own efforts -
our own energies and talents.
Thought to remember: "If
you believe in something, be
willing to be a part of it!"

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
LEFTOVERS: With the high price of dog and cat food, the only way to
make sure my animals get enough to eat is for me to feed them my left-
overs. Besides, my black labs are like my kids if it's good enough for
me to eat it's good enough for them. I would not have it any other way. I
haven't heard one of them complain yet.

MOTHER NATURE: The lake needs the low water levels right now to
recover from the storms in the last couple years. The waters look better
than they have in awhile. This is Mother Nature doing what she does
best. You are correct about the lake being the supply for South Florida,
but it wasn't created to supply canal systems. It was created as a natural
sheet flow that slowly meandered and supplied the marshes and
swamplands with the needed waters. It'll never be the same. Popula-
tions are growing and housing is needed, so more wetlands will be
drained and developments built. Look at Weston 30 years ago nothing
but sawgrass and water flowing in its own retention. Now the canals are
a straight sewer line to the estuaries in the bays. I'm a fairly positive think-
ing kind of fella, but will this situation ever right itself? In my opinion, no.
Enjoy it while you can.

VULTURES: Something puzzles me. What happened to all the vul-
tures? A year ago if an animal was killed on the road the vultures would
have the carcass picked clean in 48 hours. There has been a wild hog
carcass on the side of the road on Old Dixie Highway for a month and I
have yet to see a vulture on it. The same goes for dead possums and rac-
coons. A year ago any dead animal would be a vulture buffet pretty
quickly. You'd even see vultures sitting on the fence posts by the roadway
just waiting for something to die. But now, the vultures just aren't
around. Could it be that due to the drought so many cows have died in
the fields that the vultures are all busy elsewhere?

WASTING WATER: In the paper today they say if the drought goes on
as predicted by the National Weather Service, the lake could go below 8
feet. This is the worst drought on record folks. Those who are still water-
ing their lawns in the middle of the day are being selfish and foolish. We
all should be conserving water year-round, and planting only native
grasses and plants that can withstand the Floridaweather. Water belongs
to everyone and for anyone to waste it is shameful. Just because you
have a well does not mean you should take all the water you want. Other
people have wells going to that same aquifer. We have to share the
water. Wasting it is a crime against the rest of the community.

RESTRICTIONS: How many of you in Okeechobee have a lush, green
lawn as shown on TV in the coastal areas of Palm Beach County? Mine is
brown and crunchy when I walk on it. The water restrictions should be
the same for all. In Okeechobee, we can water just one day a week.
Right now in Palm Beach County they can water three days a week with
the idea of cutting back to two days. I would much rather have water to
drink and bathe in than a green lawn. What makes sense to you?

REAL ESTATE: If you look in the Real Estate listings for rentals and
sales it's all 772 and 561 area code numbers. People came rushing in here
and bought up houses and trailers at low prices and now they are trying
to rent them for $1,200 to $1,400 and to sell them for an exorbitant price.

BILL: I've been trying to get a hold of the Okeechobee News and this
is the only way I can do it, I guess. I got a bill from Independent Newspa-
pers, Inc. Is that for the Okeechobee News or is that another newspaper?
Could you please give me the answer.
Editor's Note: Independent Newspapers Inc. is the parent company
of the Okeechobee News.

REAL ESTATE COSTS: This is directed to the letter to the editor of
April 3. We should tell him that Okeechobee is very happy with the high
price of housing because we don't want anyone here only the rich.
The rich from this town have acquired their wealth through sweat of
brow and hard work, or maybe from airplanes and I'll leave it at that. The
thing is, there are kids that grow up in this town that are Okeechobee res-
idents and they need a house in which to live. The reason for the sale
price of a home here is because if you sell your house here and go some-
where else it's going to cost you just that much to buy a house there. So
the whole United States of America needs to lower their real estate prices
and once that happens, the poor shall inherit the earth. The whole coun-
try needs to kick out these rich people in office that don't care about the
poor people that work so they can go get a hamburger or a pizza. These
people are the backbone of the country and if you can't give them a
home in this country what are we going to have here but a lot more
crime and a lot more problems.

ADIOS: This is in response to the April 4 letter to the editor. I read this
over and what this man is saying he seems to be disappointed. Through
the years we have had a lot of migrants and some of us speak Spanish.
I've learned a little bit of Spanish and I just want to say "Adios, Paul."

WATER: People wanting to save water should connect their garden
hose to the drain on their washing machines and let the water run out in
their yards, instead of down the drains and wasting all that water.

UNFAIR: I don't think it's fair that some areas are allowed to water
three times a week and Okeechobee can only water one time a week.
Why can't everybody do two times a week and we will all be using the
same amount of water.
TIRED: I'm tired of hearing about the water situation. Let them use it if
they want. Can't you all find something else to talk about besides the
water? First it was fishing poles, and now it's the water.

Letters to the Editor


Southern
heritage
April is the designated month
to remember and honor our Con-
federate dead who so bravely and
sacrificially fought and died in the
War of 1861 to 1865.
These men were our ancestors
and our lineage and we should
see that their memory doesn't
fade away, as it is quickly doing in
our history books.
The men who fought for their
homeland and beloved South
were of true integrity and


irrefutable character. They are
splendid role models for the
youth of today.
Our libraries have many books
on the lives of men like Robert E.
Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Robert
Toombs and Jeb Stuart, just to
name a few.
No further than Crowfordsville
and Washington, Ga., are homes
of great leaders of the Civil War.
Take your children on a trip rich
with historical value and intro-
duce them to things that schools
are leaving out concerning their
heritage.
Rosemary Duvall

Grammy award


winner will minister


at Abundant Blessings


Larry Ford will be ministering
at Abundant Blessings Assembly
of God on Easter Sunday, April 8.
The service will start at 10:30
a.m. The public is invited to join
us as we celebrate the resurrec-
tion with praise and worship to
our risen Savior.
Larry Ford is a Grammy
award winning tenor who has
committed his life to singing the
good news of the Gospel of
Jesus Christ. Larry's music min-
istry has taken him to fifty one
states in the United States and to
twenty eight foreign countries.
He has sung in English, Spanish,
Swedish, Russian, Italian,
Hebrew and Norwegian.
In recent years many invita-
tions have been extended to
Larry as a result of his participa-
tion in Bill and Gloria Gaither's
Homecoming videos. Larry is
often a featured soloist on the
videos and has become closely
associated with the songs, "Little
is much when God is in it," "Sing
of my Redeemer," "Follow Me,"
and "0, What a Savior."
Larry and his wife, Sherryl,
have been married for 36 years.
They served as pastors at
churches in Texas and Florida
for ten years before Larry
returned to full time music min-
istry. Larry and Sherryl have five


sons, Matthew, Mark, Luke, Jon
and Seth. They have a daughter
and son-in-law, Amanda and
Darius; and four grandchildren,
Nethan, Dylan, Genevieve and
Zoe.
Larry's traveling schedule
includes over 125 concerts a
year. In spite of his rigorous
schedule, Larry's priorities are
as a proud husband, father, and
grandfather. First Assembly of
God-Central Ft. Myers is the
Fords' church home. Dan and
Darlene Betzer are their pastors
and friends.
Larry has been a professional
pilot, a pastor, and all of his life,
a worshiper. Often when people
hear Larry sing for the first time,
they are overwhelmed by the
power of his voice.. Those who
know him best know it is not
only powerful, but an anointed
gift for which he gives God all
the glory.
We extend an invitation for
you to join Larry and the congre-
gation of Abundant Blessings
Assembly of God on Easter to
celebrate Christ and his gift to
the world.

church office at (863)763-3736.

U.S. 441, Okeechobee.


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Stu Beebe, Director
of Christian Education
First United Methodist
Church Okeechobee
"...Inasmuch as ye have done
it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it
unto me." (Matthew 25:40)
The mental picture I receive
as we read that scripture is this:
We see a small house out in
the country. On the back porch
of that house there is a four-year
old girl and her mother. And they
are standing in front of a home-
less man, who has just asked if
they can spare him any food.
Now, this is not a fancy house. It
could use a coat of paint, and
probably a little scraping of the
old paint before the new paint
gets put on and the yard is not
manicured. In fact the grass -
which looks more like weeds -
could use a good cutting. But
inside the house is clean and
spotless and Momma is dressed
in one of those aprons that has
seen more than its share of
home-made recipe ingredients
and cleaners spilled on it; and all
of it with a lot of love. It's a pic-
ture from a less affluent time,
and in many ways, a better time.
The little girl takes another look
at the homeless man and then
looks up at her mother and says
in such a matter of fact way that
you couldn't possibly argue with
her, "We'd better feed him,
Momma. He might be Jesus in
disguise."


You and I could read
Matthew's scripture from today
until the day we pass over and
not get that much practical
application out of it.
As we witness more and
more of the 'end times' history
unfolding before our eyes, how
do we intend to identify our-
selves as the 'Saved in Christ?'
Jesus outlined this for us when
He said, "A new commandment
I give unto you, that ye love one
another; as I have loved you, that
ye also love one annlh' r. By this,
all men know that ye are my dis-
ciples, if ye have love one to
another." (John 13:34-35)
I think since the Good Lord
said 'love one another' three
times He must have thought is
was mighty important, don't
you? When Jesus comes to
claim His own, all He has to do is
look for those who are display-
ing love for their fellow
humans...and those will be His
disciples. How many of us are
displaying love -- spiritual love --
for each other? How many of us
ever mention to anybody that we
are Christians? When was the
last time you shared your faith
with another person? We'd all
better hurry while we still have
the chance. There are those in
our society who would like to
make such sharing a hate crime!
I'm praying Jesus Christ
returns...FIRST!
There's a little colloquialism
that is used quite a lot; the term
is 'Constipated Christians.' What


Green Acres star to appear at Treasure Island Baptist Church


Tom Lester, who played the
role of Eb Dawson on Green
Acres, will be appearing at Trea-
sure Island Baptist Church, 4209 U.
S. 441 S.E. at 6 p.m., on Saturday,
April 14.
The singing group Audience of
One will also be performing.
Tom is widely used as a fea-
tured speaker across the country
at such events as banquets, youth
conferences, singles retreats,
youth rallies, worship services and
prayer breakfasts.
Tom taught school for one year
in Purcell, OK before he journeyed
to
California to follow a dream he
had since he was a boy. As a ten
year old lad, Tom committed his
life to Jesus Christ, and from that
moment on, he believe ,- the,- Lid
would send him to Caiifornia to
seek an acting career.
Tom's teen through high
school years were very rewarding,
growing up in Laurel, MS on his
grandfather's farm. After his high
school graduation, he attended the
University of Mississippi in Oxford,
MS, where he received a B.A.
degree in chemistry and biology.
He also attended the University of
Southern Mississippi in Hatties-
burg.
Tom was a long, lanky country
boy and became the brunt of
many skinny jokes. As he and his
friends discussed their future, Tom
would mention his dream of
becoming an actor. His friends
replied that he would never make
it. He was too tall, to skinny, too
ugly and he had a Southern
accent. Even though his friends
continued to discourage him, Tom
never stopped believing in his
dream.
After college, Tom's year of

teaching school was a great expe-
rience, but Hollywood was calling;
hbe.lft horme.withi meager finances
and drove to Hollywood, CA. Tom
found the First Baptist Church of
Beverly Hills, CA and there he was
rewarded with many wonderful
Christian experiences, which
helped mold his commitment to
God.
In Hollywood Tom met Lurene
Tuttle, a marvelous and talented
character actress and acting
coach. They became great friends,
and she became his acting coach.
Tom said she was the only person
who did not put him down when
he mentioned the Lord was lead-
ing him to acting. Miss Tuttle told
Tom to begin working in Little The-
ater. His first Little Theater experi-
ence was acting in showcases at
the North Hollywood Playhouse.

Church of God hosting youth revival
The Okeechobee Church of God, 301 N.E. Fourth Ave., and Cross Fire
Youth Ministry will host a youth revival on Friday, April 13, and Saturday,
April 14. Doors will open at 5 p.m., and services will start at 6 p.m. Some of
those scheduled to perform include: Julian Drive; Ignite (Okeechobee
Church of God youth band); Fire Within (Okeechobee Church of God
youth drama team); and, Divine Purpose (Okeechobee Church of God col-
lege drama team). Keith Barron will be delivering a special word. Those

and writer of the Beverly Hillbillies,
Petticoat Junction and executive
producer of Green Acres. Mr. Hen-
ning came to see Linda in the
showcases, saw Tom and discov-
ered his acting ability.
Tom soon received a phone call
from Mr. Henning requesting that
he meet Jay Sommer, who was the
director, producer and writer of
the new Green Acres TV series.
Tom was to try out for the part of
Eb Dawson, the hired hand. Elat-
ed, Tom met and performed for
Mr. Sommers and was rewarded
with a screen test, and was given
the role of Eb. The studio read and
tested over 400 other actors before
choosing Tom.
Tom's success in the acting and
speaking profession has been pos-


sible because of his gift of commu-
nication and never giving up even
though all his friends told him he
would never make it as an actor.
Tom attests to the fact that there
are no insignificant people, and
that one does not have the right to
do less than the best he can. Tom
says, "Each person has the oppor-
tunity to choose and make quality
decisions that can change and
effect our lives forever." Tom con-
tinued to follow his dream and is
known by millions. He has had
and still has the opportunity, to
share his faith around the world.
Tom says true success is becoming
everything God has gifted you to
become. He works toward accom-
plishing this each day with God's
help.


that means is that God's Word
keeps going in -- but nothing
ever comes out. That's probably
not a good analogy. One Sunday
I heard a pastor who took it
upon himself to administer his
flock a little spiritual laxative; to
loosen them up a little so they
would share the gospel. I'm not
sure about the success of that
sermon. But I did notice that the
ushers were looking mighty con-
cerned about the cleanliness of
their pews.
The truth of the matter is that
we just don't display our faith
very much. We assume it will
offend someone, and then we
save it for when we are with peo-
ple we are sure are already
saved, and believe in the same
way we do. Well, that kind of
keeps it an exclusive, club does-
n't it? How is anybody supposed
to hear about Jesus' wonderful
sacrifice for us and His resurrec-
tion if nobody will talk about it?
And frankly, I wouldn't leave it to
Christian television either --
nobody unsaved ever watches.
Let me ask you a question.
Do your neighbors know where
you are .on Sunday morning?
This is a world where you might
not even know who your neigh-
bors are. But I'll tell you one
thing; they know if you go to


church on Sunday. They know!
Right? They know if you get all
dressed up and get the family out
in the car before noon...or not.
So you are witnessing...whether
you want to, or not! And how do
you deal with your neighbors
about common, ordinary things?
They know if you are a Christian
or not. That is, they know if you
are a person who loves of their
fellow man...as Jesus set the
example for us. No one has to
tell them. They know what they
think of that. And they know if
they want to be like you!
If you can't tell a Christian
from an unsaved person, what is
the difference? And think about
this: If God didn't have a purpose
for you on this earth, why didn't
He take you to be with Him the
moment you were saved?
So...yes, by all means, feed
the hungry man the little girl is
right. He just might be Jesus in
disguise. And this just might be
the last chance you will have to
display the love and caring God
sent to you through His Son, our
savior, Jesus Christ.
This Easter would be a good
time for all of us to start follow-
ing our risen Savior's example:
be generous, both with the food
for the body and with the food
for the soul.

Living with Africanized honey bees Bee Aware


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today announced that
public education activities are
under way in the state's effort to
protect people and animals from
the dangers associated with the
growing population of African-
ized honey bees (AHB). AHB are
the defensive cousins of Euro-
pean honey bees who, through
Florida's vital honey bee indus-
try, provide pollination that result
in the production of approxi-
mately one-third of the food we
eat.
The Department monitors
over 500 AHB bait traps through-
out the state. Since their initial
discovery in Florida in 2002, AHB
have been positively identified in
over 20 Florida counties, with the
majority of stinging incidents in
South Florida.
"Every week, reports of possi-
ble Africanized honey bee nest
sightings or stinging incidents are
received by the Department,"
Bronson said. "We have formed
an AHB inter-agency communi-
cations group to help get the
word out about things the public
can do to prevent attacks. The
motto of the group, 'Bee Aware,
Look, Listen and Run,' was cho-
sen because if people will regu-
larly monitor their surroundings
and run inside a protective struc-
ture, when threatened, they can
avoid potentially dangerous,
painful attacks from Africanized
honey bees."
The Department has been
working with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agriculture Sciences (UF/IFAS)
to: make presentations to over
100 statewide organizations;


exhibit information at confer-
ences, festivals, and fairs; distrib-
ute thousands of information
packets; and provide interviews
to news media and interested
parties on AHB. This grassroots
public education effort has
resulted in reaching over 4 mil-
lion people. Ongoing outreach
program efforts include identify-
ing partnering opportunities at
major county events. The Depart-
ment plans to reach as many
people as possible in all Florida
counties to deliver important
messages about AHB and Flori-
da's important beekeeping


industry.
The Department's helpline
often receives calls from people
who know about the dangers of
AHB, but are confused about
what they are supposed to do if
they see a nest of bees. People
should stay away from insect
nests and call a licensed pest
control company to remove the
nests. They should never try to
remove a nest themselves. A list
of licensed pest control opera-
tors by county is available at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/p
lantinsp/ahb.html.
To prevent stinging incidents,


the Department urges the public
to follow these important guide-
lines:
If allergic to bees, always
have a bee sting kit available.
Eliminate potential AHB
nesting sites. Check walls and
eaves of structures. Plug holes.
Stay alert for bees. Because
noise excites AHB, look for bees
in work areas before using
power equipment such as weed
eaters, lawnmowers and chain-
saws.
If bees chase you, run away
and get inside a car or building.
Contact a licensed pest con-


Submitted/www.ucsd.edu
Without lab tests it is impossible to tell an Africanized honey and a honey bee apart. If
chased by a bee, run in a straight line to a house or car, get inside a house or car and stay
there until the bee leaves.

nicate via e-mail with friends and
relatives. The more advanced
computer class will teach how to

how to send pictures. You may

for these same classes. In Okee-
chobee, call (863) 763-3536 or

tion tech trainer, at
gabi@myhlc.org.
Child Find
helps kids
Your local Florida Diagnostic
and Learning Resources System
(FDLRS) Center now offers a
service known as Child Find.
Child Find helps find and identify
children up to 21 years of age
who have not been enrolled in a
school system who may need
special education services. The
primary focus is on 3, 4 and 5-
year-old children not yet in a
school setting. Child Find pro-
vides free screenings on speech
and language, development,
vision, and hearing. For informa-
tion, contact Kathy Wall at (800)
358-8525.
Volunteers are
needed at Hospice
Hospice of Okeechobee, Inc.
has volunteer opportunities avail-
able in Okeechobee assisting the
patient care and administrative
teams to provide Hospice services
to Okeechobee area residents. Per-
manent and part-time volunteers
provide direct patient support serv-
ices such as companionship, tele-
phone contacts, letter reading,
main caregiver relief and other
non-medical assistance. They also
assist Hospice in fund raising, cleri-
cal and office support. Age is not a
barrier. For information, visit Hos-
pice of Okeechobee at 411 S.E.
Fourth St., Okeechobee, or call
(863) 467-2321.
Center offers
service to children
The Family Outreach Center at
Sacred Heart, 701 S.W. Sixth St.,
offers a service to youth and chil-
dren by giving free classes in mar-
tial arts. The classes are currently
taught weekdays on Tuesday,
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday,
from 6 until 7:30 p.m. and on Satur-
day from 4 until 5 p.m.
Equipment available
for the handicapped
American Legion Post 64, 501
S.E. Second St. has used handi-


trol company to remove nest. Do
not attempt to remove it yourself.
Seek medical attention if
needed.
"It is important to remember
that managed honey bee
colonies are critical to Florida
agriculture and these more gen-
tle honey bees should not be


confused with the highly defen-
sive Africanized honey bee,"
Bronson said. "Floridians are
used to living among dangerous
animals and insects. Education is
the key to staying safe."

What do I need
to do before making a
purchase offer?


Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price 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:

$105,000 #200M Call Jed 863-634-6056 Shervl 863-634-1343. I


* Lenders also analyze your income 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.
