Fees combat growing panLJ


Impact fees
will help fund
capital projects
(Editor's Note: First in a
series.)
By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Like it or not, people con-
structing new buildings of any
type except for agricultural


use in Okeechobee County
will soon be paying impact fees.
Impact fees are an effort to
combat growing pains by forcing
a developer to pay a prorated
portion of the cost of the impact
to the infrastructure caused by
his development.
Consultant Walter Keller con-
ducted an extensive impact fee
study for the Okeechobee Coun-
ty School Board and for Okee-
chobee County. He is in the
process of completing a similar


study for the City of Okeechobee.
Mr. Keller used census figures
and population projections for
the next 10 years to come up
with his results.
Using population figures and
student numbers, he came up
with the average number of stu-
dents generated by a household.
This figure was broken down
into single family, multi-family
and mobile homes.
The cost of school plant facili-
ties was computed based on esti-


(iln' at Lock 7?: Think twice


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) officer Chris Douglas and
FWC fisheries employee Mary Beth, Egbert helped install new signs at Lock 7 Friday
morning. The signs warn the public that the lakefront land is protected under Florida
statute 375.314, damage to public lands. The area of land at Lock 7 that was once under
water has recently been torn up by persons using it as a mud bog.

Warnings posted at Lock 7
By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officers and fishery employees
joined together Friday morning to
post 10 signs along the water's
edge of Lake Okeechobee at Lock
7.
The property has become a
favorite spot for people to take
their ATVs and other vehicles to
go mudding.
This practice is, according to
Florida statute 375.314, against
the law and will be dealt with as
"destruction of public lands."
Law enforcement officers from
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office and FWC will work togeth-
er to patrol this area and issue
citations to anyone caught dam-
aging the already endangered
lake.
These citations will require a
court appearance and will be con-
sidered a second-degree misde-
meanor with fines up to $500 and
up to 30 days in jail.

and equipment costs for a new
school. The end result of this
analysis was the average cost per
new student.
These figures were converted
into the school impact fee sched-
ules for single family homes,
mobile homes and apartments.
These impact fees will help cover
the costs to the school system
generated by each of those hous-
ing units.
County impact fees will be


used for roads, fire, EMS and cor-
rections. Here again, Mr. Keller
used population estimates. He
took into consideration seasonal
and year-round populations and
land use characteristics.
In implementing road impact
fees, Mr. Keller took into consid-
eration projected traffic loads
over the next 10 years.
Road projects to be funded by
impact fees include: work on

Members of the Okee-
chobee City Police Department
(OCPD) and the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
served as celebrity servers
recently and raised over $1,900
for the Children's Miracle Net-
work.
The OCPD personnel served
food and drinks Wednesday,
April 11, from 5 until 8 p.m. at
the Golden Corral Restaurant
and raised $1,050 for the chil-
dren's network.
OCSO deputies, corrections
officers and detectives spent an
evening in March working
tables and serving beverages at
the restaurant and raised $900


for the network.
All of the money came from
tips left for the servers.
The Children's Miracle Net-
work is an alliance of over 170
premier hospitals for children.
Funds raised by the celebrity
servers help local children by
purchasing life-saving equip-
ment and diversionary items,
funding pediatric research and
producing patient education
materials.
Shands Children's Hospital
is one of the leading referring
hospitals in Florida and treats
children from all over Florida,
45 different states and five for-
eign countries. Last year there
were more than 9,300 admis-
sions to the hospital.
University of Florida physi-


cians offer nearly every clinical
service, from basic primary
care to highly specialized pro-
cedures such as organ and
bone marrow transplantation,
AIDS treatment, diabetes care
and monitoring, neurosurgery
and cancer treatment.
OCPD servers included Jack
Boon, Skip Eddings, Glenda
Wilson, Bettye Taylor, Russ
Cale, Terisa Garcia, Jeanna
Lanier, Larry Parzygnat, Bill
Saum, John Zeigler, Cesar
Romero and Chief Denny Davis.
Servers from the OCSO
included Sheriff Paul May,
Detective Captain Dale LaFlam,
Jail Administrator Ronnie
White, Captain Bud Slay, Tony
Madrigal, Lt. K.J. Ammons and
Lt. Greg Pollard.

Lock 7

Continued From Page 1
"When the lake is so dry there
is exposed lake bottom, a lot of
people take their ATVs and other
vehicles and go mudding," stated
Dani Moschella, spokesperson for
the FWC. "This is detrimental to
the lake bottom."
When water levels are so low,
the areas around the edge of the
lake dry out. This allows seeds
that are in the soil to germinate
and start to grow. When the rain
comes and the lake returns to
normal levels, these new plants
provide essential habitat for fish,
especially those small ones that
need this vegetation for cover.
"When you drive an ATV over
the lake bottom, it kills that
emerging vegetation," explained
Ms. Moschella.
Okeechobee County Commis-
sioner Elvie Posey was on hand


while the signs were being erect-
ed.
"We hope that people will pay
attention to the signs and not tear
up the lake bottom. We have also
designated an area where air-
boats can launch. We met with
members of the sheriff's office
and FWC to coordinate the
patrolling of this area," said Mr.
Posey. "The message that we are
trying to get out is that the sher-
iff's office and FWC are going to
enforce this statute."
The county commission has
been taking steps to clean up the
Lock 7 area, and have recently
approved the purchase of six pre-
cast concrete picnic tables.
"We would like to turn the
area into a nice, family-oriented
park," said Mr. Posey.

Fees

Continued From Page 1
S.W. 32nd Street; S.W. 28th Street;
building a bypass road on the
western side of town; and, a road
maintenance facility.
According to Mr. Keller's fig-
ures, total cost of the planned
road projects would be
$22,603,500. The total amount of
the impact fees generated for
these projects would be
$5,546,916, or 25 percent of the
total. The other 75 percent must
come from other sources.
Ray Domer, chairman of the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners, thinks
the county might have to institute
a gasoline tax to supplement
impact fees and possibly issue
bonds.
Most of the funding for county
capital improvement projects will
come from a variety of sources
such as property taxes, special
assessments, grants and gasoline
taxes.
Before Mr. Keller began his
study, many people thought that
impact fees would be the solution
for financing capital projects.
However, many were amazed
to learn that impact fees would
provide only a small part of the
total costs. The majority must
come from other sources.
Once an impact fee is paid for
a certain capitol project, that proj-
ect must be completed within a
reasonable time or the fees must
be shifted to other approved proj-
ects.
Mr. Keller calculated the fire
and EMS rates for different type of
properties based on the number
of fire and EMS calls for those
types of properties. This informa-
tion was balanced against the
cost of providing fire and EMS
services.
Mr. Keller came up with resi-


dential impact fees based on the
type of dwelling. Non-residential
fire impact fees were calculated
based on a cost per square foot.
The fees for corrections were
based on the 10-year capital
improvement program to provide
needed capacity to serve new
development.
Mr. Keller came up with an
impact fee for single family
dwelling units, multiple family
dwelling units and mobile homes.
Mr. Keller's study of city impact
fees is still in progress.
City impact fees will be used
for law enforcement, fire and
public works.
Tentative uses for the city fire
impact fee include a
minipumper/brush truck, ladder
truck fire engine/pumper and
communication system.
Tentative uses for the law
enforcement impact fees include
communications, crime scene
van, an evidence drying cabinet,
squad cars, laptops and projector.
Public works impact fees
would tentatively be used for a
tractor mower, dump truck and
sidewalk and drainage improve-
ments and road construction.
As with the county impact
fees, city impact fees will generate
only a small portion of the costs.
Mr. Keller's preliminary figures
indicate that the total cost for fire,
police and public works improve-
ments will be $12,174,380, while
impact fees would pay only
$2,681,649 of that amount -
leaving $9,492,731 to come from
other sources.

Editor's Note: The next install-
ment in this series will look at the
exact cost per development in
Okeechobee County.

New 81 Lservice saves lives and


protects underground infrastructure


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Public Service Commission
(PSC) announced the availability
of a new 811 "Call Before You
Dig" number to help save lives
and protect Florida's under-
ground infrastructure. This
important safety initiative will
prevent homeowners and pro-
fessional excavators from dam-
aging underground utility lines
while digging and causing injury
or service outages.
"Calling 811 has the potential
to reduce frustrating service out-
ages while saving time, money,
and, most importantly, lives,"
said PSC Chairman Lisa Polak
Edgar. "Florida's consumers and
professional excavators will now
be able to call a three-digit num-
ber to locate underground facili-
ties with more certainty and effi-
ciency."
The PSC approved a plan in
December 2006, to implement
the nationally designated 811
number, designed to eliminate
the confusion of multiple "Call
Before You Dig" numbers across
the country. The quick and effi-
cient service connects callers
with Sunshine State One Call of
Florida, a non-profit corporation
specializing in services to pre-
vent damage to underground
utilities. Sunshine State One Call
of Florida then notifies the
appropriate local utilities, who


send crews to the requested site
to mark the location of under-
ground lines for free.
A lack of knowledge by the
public about the importance of
having utility lines marked
before digging can result in
injury or death, costly damages


to underground infrastructure,
and utility service disruptions to
thousands of people at a time.
Now, homeowners and contrac-
tors can call one easy-to-remem-
ber number to have crews mark
a requested site for underground
lines prior to any excavation.

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month


TALLAHASSEE The Flori-
da Department of Health (DOH)
joins agencies and organizations
around the state in recognizing
April as Child Abuse Prevention
Month.
"Research shows that a child
who has been abused or mal-
treated is likely to have major
health effects throughout adult-
hood," Deputy Secretary of
Health for Children's Medical
Services (CMS), Joseph J.
Chiaro, M.D. said. "As members
of the medical community, doc-
tors, nurses, social workers and
other health care providers have
an obligation to watch for signs
of abuse and report them early
to ensure the development of
healthy adults."
The Florida Department of
Health recognizes that child
abuse and maltreatment can
have serious long term health
implications and that prevention
plays a key role in ensuring a
healthy future for Florida's chil-
dren. Data from the Adverse
Childhood Experiences (ACE)


Study conducted by the Center
for Disease Control and Kaiser
Permanente's Health Appraisal
Clinic in San Diego, shows that
children who have been abused
or neglected are more likely to
have long term health problems,
including a higher tendency to
smoke, develop a drug addic-
tion, become suicidal, or be
diagnosed diabetes or heart dis-
ease. Medical professionals and
all Floridians should help create
a statewide community where
children are supported, protect-
ed and can grow up healthy.
CMS Child Protection Teams
are committed to the prevention
of child abuse, abandonment,
and neglect and provide multi-
disciplinary assessment services
to children and families involved
in child abuse and neglect inves-
tigations. Located around the
state, these teams conduct med-
ical evaluations, provide diagno-
sis, medical consultations, nurs-
ing assessments, forensic and
specialized interviews, family
psychosocial assessments, psy-


chological evaluations, and pro-
vide a variety of child abuse and
neglect training for family mem-
bers and professionals.
Child Abuse Prevention
Month was initially proclaimed
in 1982 by President Ronald
Reagan. The symbol of child
abuse awareness is the blue rib-
bon. Originating in Virginia in
1989, a grandmother of a three-
year-old boy who died from his
mother's abusive boyfriend tied
a blue ribbon to her van as a
symbol of her personal commit-
ment to the prevention of child
abuse.
Throughout the month, child
abuse prevention materials will
be available at Child Protection
Team offices and County Health
Departments across the state.

A Thoulght TOl
Remember

They say there is a sun dial in
Covington, England which bears
this inscription: "I mark time, dost
thou?" It is a constant reminder to
the people that time is important,
and is passing
away.
We often
hear the
expression:
"There just
aren't enough
hours in the
day." This
B statement is
By Paul made by the
Buxtion happiest of
people. They
are using time and could find the
use of more.
I believe it was Einstein who
said: "Time is relative." Relative
to how it is being used. Fast arid
rapid on some occasions, while
slow and dragging in other situa-
tions. Young lovers witness the
fleeting moments of time. A pris-
oner awaiting release spends
hours that seem eternal.
The person who lives the long,
rich life says in his 80's, "Life. has
been so short." It was full, rich and
enjoyable. All people can be that
way simply by marking time like
the sun dial. Use the moments to
their fullest.

4 OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Saturday, April 14, 2007


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it any-
time 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
profanities, 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 sending e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also
mail submissions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee,
Fla. 34973. Comments will be published in the newspaper as space
permits.

CLUB: Regarding the homosexual club at the high school, it's all
about sex, right? Then, they should we have a sex club for straight
students also? I think not. It is sin and it is wrong, gay or straight.
Only when you turn your life over to Christ will you know truth and
his love. He died for you and he loves you, gay or straight. Sin is sin.

DUKE: Now that all the charges have been dropped against the
lacrosse players at Duke University are Al Sharpton and Jessie Jack-
son going to get involved? These black women falsely accused
these young men and I want to know if Al Sharpton is going Ito
make a firm stand like he does, or if Jessie Jackson, who has chil-
dren out of wedlock, is going to make his big stand now that they
have found out that these people lied and this whole Duke Universi-
ty thing was a scam. Where are you Al?

APOLOGY: Now that the charges against the lacrosse players at
Duke University have been dropped and they have been cleared it
will be interesting to see if the Reverend Al Sharpton demands an
apology from their accusers. Don't you think the people who
accused these innocent young men should apologize? Shouldn't
Reverend Sharpton demand an apology, along with Jessie Jackson?
I think they should go on nationwide TV and demand an apology
for these young men.

CHAVEZ: Last month George W. Bush went to South America on
a goodwill mission only to be followed by the president of
Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. Chavez undermined everything Bush did
by promising cheaper oil prices to Bolivia and all the other coun-
tries and also by chanting "Gringo, go home." Even though I am not
even remotely a Bush fan I realize that Hugo Chavez owns every
CITGO station in the United States, the country he hates, and we
continue to fuel his economy by buying gas and products at his
business. I will push my car past a CITGO station before I will buy
fuel or products at his business again. I think a national boycott
would hit him where it hurts, in the pocket. Think about it and do
some reading and you will see that's all the truth.

CANDIDATES: Have you heard the good news? Ron Paul, a con-
gressman from Texas, and Tom Tancredo from Colorado have both
decided to run for president. They are both excellent, patriotic
Americans for America and not for a few billionaires who want to
run the world.

Editor's Note: For clarification purposes, Mr. Paul and Mr. Tan-
credo have announced they are forming exploratory committees
for their potential presidential bids. Neither man has, however,
officially announced that they plan to run for president in 2008.

RECYLING: I would like to know if the people have stopped the
recycling pick up because I have had my recycling out and nobody
is picking it up.
Editor's Note: For the answer to your question, contact Waste
Management at (863) 357-0824 and ask for Chris.

IMUS: I just read an article where Snoop Dogg was arrested for
the fourth or fifth time for paraphernalia, illegal gun and drugs and
he is getting off free. But this Imus guy, for just using his mouth, is
indicted and fired. What is wrong with this country? This isn't right.
Snoop Dogg has used way worse words towards women than Imus
ever did. I don't condone what Imus did. I don't think anybody who
uses the "N" word, the "Ho" word in music should be let go. Then
this other guy just says something on the radio and he's fired and
his name is all over the world for it. It's time for this country to
stand up and say we've had enough.

GAYS: I have a comment about the gay club in Okeechobee. Gay
people do not get pregnant and I believe we should be all for a gay
club since Okeechobee has such a problem with teenagers having
babies. We taxpayers pay for those kids to go on the school buses
and send those kids to day care, rather than sending the mothers
that are having these babies in high school and junior high school
to get their GED on their own time while the baby's daddy watches
the baby. If they were gay, they wouldn't be having children.

GROUP: I am trying to find out what organization was having
the yard sale in the old K-Mart parking lot a couple weekends ago.
They were also in the March 17 parade in Okeechobee.

Reflections from the Pulpit


Religion Briefs


By Reverend Jimi Hudson
Hi; I louse l-ellowshlip ( Church
of tli Nazaienei
Sast year I received ithe follow-
inl ts a;M ),-tmail. I thought that is
was soIiclliiii',, I would like to
pI'. aloi! to (vervone in Okee-
chaobc. I still feel lie same way,
so I pass it alol!' a;-ain.
How Trelat thou art
liHe is the First amid Last, the
Be!iniiig a and the End! He is the
keeper of creation and the Cre-
ator of all. He is the Architect of
the universe and the Manager of
all times. .
He always was, He always is
and Ile always will be unmoved,
unciieangec(.l, undefeated and
never unldole!
He was bruised and brought
healing! He was pierced and
eased pain! He was persecuted
and brought freedom! He was
dead and brought life!
He is risen and brings power.
He reigns and brings peace.


The world can't understand
Him. The armies can't defeat
Him. The schools can't explain
Him and the leaders can't ignore
Him.
Herod couldn't kill Him. The
Pharisees couldn't confuse Him
and the people couldn't hold
Him. Nero couldn't crush Him.
Hitler couldn't silence Him. The
New Age can't replace Him and
Donahue can't explain Him
away.
He is light, love, longevity, and
Lord. He is goodness, kindness,
gentleness, and God. He is holy,
righteous, mighty, powerful, and
pure. His ways are right. His word
is eternal.
His will is unchanging and His
mind is on me. He is my
Redeemer. He is my Savior. He is
my Guide and He is my peace! He
is my joy. He is my comfort. He is
my Lord and He rules my life.
I serve Him because His bond
is love, His burden is light and His
goal for me is abundant life. I fol-


low Him because He is the wis-
dom of the wise and the power of
the .powerful, the Ancient of
Days, the Ruler of rulers, the
Leader of leaders, the Overseer of
the overcomers, and the Sover-
eign Lord of all that is and is to
come, and if that seems impres-
sive to you, try this for size: His
goal is a relationship with me!.
He will never leave me, never
forsake me, never mislead me,
never forget me, never overlook
me, and never cancel my
appointment in His appointment
book.
When I fall, He lifts me up!
When I fail, He forgives! When I
am week, He is strong! When I
am lost, He is the way!
When I am afraid, He is
courage. When I stumble, He
steadies me. When I am hurt, He
heals me. When I am broken, He
mends me. When I am blind, He
leads me.
When I am hungry, He feeds
me. When I face trails, He is with


me. When I face persecution, He
shields me. When I face prob-
lems, He comforts me.
When I face loss, He provides
for me. When I face death, He
carries me Home. He is every-
thing for everybody, everywhere,
every time, and every way.
He is God. He is faithful. I am
His and He is mine. Our Father in
heaven can whip the father of this
world so if you're wondering why
I feel so secure, understand this:
He said it and that settles it. God is,
in control. I am on His side. That
means all is well with my soul.
We have recently celebrated
our Lord's coming out of the
tomb. He arose from the grave.
He is alive! He is alive and ever
able to walk with us, to talk with
us, and to meet our every need.
Today we have His promise. The
grave is not our final resting
place. We, too, shall be resurrect-
ed to live with Him for all of eter-
nity.
Hallelujah!
