Okeechobee News
In the future, new residents to
the unincorporated area of the
county will be expected to pay for
the increase on the infrastructure
their new house, apartment or
other new building will cause.
If a resident builds a single fam-

lot, he would pay $1,177 for road
impact fees, a $74 EMS impact fee,
a $170 fire impact fee and a $369
corrections impact fee for a total of
$1,790.
To that total of county-imposed
impact fees would be added a
school district impact fee of $3,384
for a site-built home, or $2,366 ^-

Ayala (left) concerning aspects of law enforcement and what is required to get into the field.


Sister Elinor talks about


Okeechobee's history


Writers note: Last week we
identified Mr. Harley Arnold's
mother Mittie Raulerson Arnold
as Ruth Thomas Arnold. Ruth
Arnold was Mr. Arnold's wife.
We apologize to the Arnold fami-
ly forth error.
As told to MaryAnn Morris
Sister Elinor Sevigny, is a
member of
the Sisters of
the Holy
Names of
Jesus and
Mary (SNJM),
a resident of e. fi
Okeechobee a,
since 1983, .
she will cele- .
brate her fifti-
eth Jubilee Sister Elinor
today, Sunday, Sevigny
April 15, 2007.
She has been in Okeechobee for


almost 24 years.
To be a "sister, a woman, after
many years of progressive com-
mitment, vows not to marry, but
to commit her life entirely to God.
She can do many things, but God
is always first. For fifty years she
has done that.
SNJM was founded in Montre-
al in 1843 a long way from Flori-
da. But in 1868, just after the Civil
War, five sisters responded to an


appeal from Bishop Augustin
Verot, the first Catholic Bishop of
Florida, and set sail, braving
storms and sea sickness, to go
Florida to start schools for the
children of freed slaves in Key
West. These schools educated
not only these children, but also
the children of Key West and
even some resident students
who came from Cuba, only 90
miles away, to learn English. But
that is not the end. In 1881,
another group of 2 Sisters sailed
to Tampa to start schools there.
"At the time they arrived, there
were only 800 people living in
Tampa," said Sister Elinor.
"People began to emigrate
from Mexico to Okeechobee and
other parts of the U.S. Bracero

mobile home into the county and
places it in a mobile, home park or
RV park, they will pay $416 for
road impact fees, $54 in EMS
impact fees, $124 for fire impact
fees and $122 for corrections. This
means that a total of $716 in coun-
ty imposed impact fees will be
added to the cost of the permit. On
top of that, the mobile home
owner would pay $2,366 in school
impact fees for a grand total of
$3,082.
The builder of a hotel will have


to pay a total of $1,191 per room in
impact fees. That total includes
$904 for road impact fees, $25 for
EMS, $140 for fire and $122 for cor-
rections.
On the positive side, however,
the hotel developer will not have
to pay school impact fees since the
-hotel doesn't generate any stu-
dents.

World War II," said Sister Elinor.
"They filled jobs in the fields and
packing houses and jobs no one
else would take, much as they do
today."
Sister Elinor works here in
Okeechobee, to help the Hispanic
people, (25 percent of the people
in Okeechobee County) learn the
American culture and move to bet-
ter themselves in a new land.
"We came here in response to
the increasing immigration in Flori-
da shortly after the 1980 Mariel
Boatlift. Our first place was a store-
front in the Markham Building,"
said Sister. "We found that at that
time, Spanish-speaking population
had no telephones to talk to their
families back home in Mexico. So,
one of our first tasks was to set up a
bank of telephones they could use
at cost.
"We acted as translators to help
with bills, doctors and the like. We
taught English."
Many of the early pioneers
came to this country speaking a dif-
ferent language. But those were
slower, simpler t\jmes.
In 1795, there was a petition put
before Congress to publish all the
laws in English and German.
(There were many German-speak-
ing people in the United States
back then.) The petition failed by
only one vote. As a response to
their petition, a House committee
recommended publishing three
thousand sets of laws in German

also prepared a schedule of road,
EMS and fire impact fees for the
three categories of office, institu-
tional and recreational, industrial
and commercial/retail. Most fees in
those areas are based on each
1,000 square feet of area.
The office category includes
hospitals, banks, churches,.
libraries, day care centers schools,
parks, marinas and golf courses.
The industrial category includes
light industrial, general
industrial/warehouse, mini-ware-
house and manufacturing. Includ-


and English and distributing them.
However, when the House debat-
ed the proposal on the 13th Janu-
ary 1795 it ended without decision
and a vote a later date rejected the
proposal 42 to 41 (hence the one
vote). Later, in February, the House
debated translating Federal
Statutes into German, but as it
turned out, Federal Statutes were
to be in English only. The bill was
signed into law by George Wash-
ington one month later. To this day,
the United States has no official lan-
guage.
"You have to go back to the his-
tory of Mexico," said Sister. "Origi-
nally, before 1846, Mexico extend-
ed up the western coast of the
United States California, Arizona,
Oregon, Idaho and part of Mon-
tana, down to include Nevada -
and Texas and everything in
between: (Taking away about one-
third of Mexico as it existed at that
time) Through concentrated
efforts, in four steps, the United
States was able to defeat Mexico
and extend its territory to the Pacif-
ic Ocean by 1853. What was left of
Mexico was the poorest lands of
the country. It has never recov-
ered."
Like the Irish and Scottish flee-
ing famine and persecution by the
English and all the other peoples
who came here, the Hispanic Mex-
icans now come.
"We help them and all low-
income families get good housing
and make this a real home," says
Sr. Elinor.

ed in commercial/retail are restau-
rants, convenience stores, pharma-
cies with drive-through, car sales
and shopping centers.
In lieu of any of the above
impact fees, a builder may con-
struct capital improvements such
as a school building or road or fire
station, or donate land for such
purposes.

Editor's note: Proposed city
impact fees will be dealt with in
the next installment.

4 OPINION


The Okeechobee News, Sunday, April 15, 2007


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
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 pro-
fanities, 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 send-
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.

CHLORINE: Have they had a big sale on chlorine? This water will
burn you.
Editor's Note: We contacted the Okeechobee Utility Authority and
were told that they are required by rule to periodically alter the
method of disinfection for the water distribution system. In prepara-
tion of this change, the OUA published a public notice in the newspa-
oer for several days prior to the switch. The level of disinfectant used
today is within the parameters required by the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP). Since it is a different method of dis-
infectant, there will be a noticeable change in the smell and/or taste
at the tap. The OUA will resume the normal disinfection process at the
end of this month.

MORE CHLORINE: I think they need to have the health department
or somebody from the state go over there and check the chlorine levels
in the drinking water supply in Okeechobee because I believe they are
way, way high. It will burn your eyes while you are taking a bath and
you can smell it. It's pure chlorine.

ROAD: This is about the road through Basswood, 36th Street. It is
half finished and the county is big on collecting taxes and the road has
been half finished for three to four months. What do we have to do?
The commissioners need to get on the ball and get this done because
the road is worse now than it was. I am going to try to get a bunch of
people together to sue the county. I've talked to a lot of people that feel
the same waywe do and we are going to act.
Editor's Note: As we have stated previously in answers about this
street, the project was stopped because the material being used to
oave the road does not meet county specifications. The county has a
couple different options available to them and they are trying to
determine the best way to correct the problem and finish the project.

Many people haie the idea,
that aii conditioning is blot -
ing cold air onto a person.
Tlfis is not totally correct. Air
Conditioning is the science of
removing unwanted warm
and moisture laden air from a
space or area. In order to
accomplish this, room air is
passed over an evaporator or
cooling coil, typically by
means of a blower and duct
assembly. The coil must be
cooler than the entering air to


obtain the desired effect-s.
Consider room air at 78
degrees F. passing over a coil
at 50 degrees F. It is here, in
the evaporator, that the
unwanted "warm air" and
more importantly (in my
opinion) the humidity is
removed. The end result is
cooler/dehumidified air (15-
20 degrees cooler) being dis-
charged via the duct system.
Proper air conditioning truly
is a science.

Legal Notice


Legal Notice


Notice from Miami-Dade County Circuit Court

ATTENTION: Florida Smokers and Survivors

of florida Smokers

The Engle Class Action was filed in 1994 and went to trial against the tobacco industry in
July, 1998. HOWARD A. ENGLE, M.D., ETAL. (Plaintiffs) vs. R.J. REYNOLDS TOBACCO
CO., PHILIP MORRIS INC., BROWN & WILLIAMSON TOBACCO CORP. Individually

LORILLARD, INC., LIGGETT GROUP, INC., BROOKE GROUP HOLDING INC. f/k/a
BROOKE GROUP LTD., INC., COUNCIL FOR TOBACCO RESEARCH U.S.A. and
TOBACCO INSTITUTE (Defendants). (Case No. 94-08273 CA (22) Dade County Circuit
Court). After a two year trial and multipleappeal~4,the Florida Supreme Court has made the
following determinations that may affect your rights:

CLASS MEMBERS HAVE ONE YEAR FROM JANUARY 11, 2007 TO FILE INDI-
VIDUAL LAWSUITS FOR COMPENSATORYAND PUNITIVE DAMAGES BASED
ON BINDING FINDINGS FROM THE ENGLE TRIAL.

The Florida Supreme Court concluded that continued class action treatment is not feasible
for the remaining issues, (remaining issues being: individual legal causation, apportionment
of fault among the defendants, comparative fault, and damages). The parties disagree about
the issues remaining to be decided.
Class members can choose to file individual actions with the Court-approved findings set
forth below given binding effect in any subsequent action between individual class members
and the defendants:

Common Causation Findings:
Smoking cigarettes causes aortic aneurysm, bladder cancer, cerebrovascular disease, cervical
cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, coronary heart disease, esophageal cancer,
kidney cancer, laryngeal cancer, lung cancer (specifically, adenocarcinoma, large cell
carcinoma, small cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma), complications of pregnancy,
oral cavity/tongue cancer, pancreatic cancer, peripheral vascular disease, pharyngeal cancer,
and stomach cancer.

Common Liability Findings:

Old Tom, Young Tom


As I watched the Masters broad-
cast this year, I was impressed, just
like I am every year, at the history
that this golf tournament repre-
S sents. Of course, Zach Johnson's
S victory was quite remarkable. His
first major win was not expected.
While the Masters represents
some of golf's finest moments on
this side of the Atlantic, golf history
goes back a bit further in time on
-. the other side of the pond. I needed
a dose of golf lore, so I picked up a
: copy of Kevin Cook's new book
"Tommy's Honor."
This is the tale of golf's found-
ing father and son, Old Tom Morris
and of course, Young Tom Morris.
Old Tom Morris was the actual
caretaker of St. Andrews. He was
also its champion. There were
many golfers who wanted to beat
Old Tom. However, nobody want-
ed to win a match with the godfa-
ther of golf more than his own son
Tommy.
Kevin Cook tells the tale of these
competitors in vivid fashion. You
feel like you are right next to them,
walking the fairways and gorse of
the Old Course. The characters are
quite colorful. If you are fortunate


L .

Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube
to have played St. Andrews, you
will appreciate taking this trip back
in time. If you have not visited
golf's historic home, reading this
book will have you on the phone to
your travel agent in no time.
So dust off those hickory-shaft-
ed niblicks, tee-up your feathery
(on a tee made of sand), pull up
your knickers and pick up this
book. Your appreciation for the
game you love will only become
deeper!
Tommy's Honor is illustrated,
comes in hard cover (327 pages), is
published by Gotham Books and
retails for $27.50.

Crockpots are essential cooking tools


In all my cooking years, I cannot
tell you how many crock pots I
have owned. I've owned big ones,
small ones, ugly ones, cool looking
ones, oval ones, tall ones...gosh,
you name it, I've owned it, includ-
ing one with a timer on it (my cur-
rent one) that I still haven't figured
out.
Crockpots have come a long
way since being introduced in
1970. My first one was a wedding
present I received in the late 70's.
My first pot of split pea soup was
made in that crockpot, as was chili,
beef stew and anything else my lit-
tle crockpot cookbook (included
with the crockpot) taught me to
make. I was a college student look-
ing for ways to make dinner while I
was gone all day in class, and then
later, went off to my job. I didn't
own a car and bicycled to and fro
from class to work and back home
again. Life was complicated as a
young married but I had one area
under control and that was dinner!
My crockpot even then, was my
faithful companion. It was ugly
(hideous avocado green and the
insert didn't pull out), but it made
me feel good about myself walking
into my tiny apartment after a long
day knowing dinner was under
control. The relief of not having to
tackle another thing was great!
Thirty years later, I still love


-_ .The Dinner
r, -. Diva

.s ; j' by
K, .-<-.*Leanne

walking into my house after a hard
day and smelling dinner cooking
away in my crockpot.
So what happens if you live in a
place that doesn't have crockpots?
Or if you don't yet own one? Well,
what can I say? I think you should
move and buy one, LOL! Listen,
they are very inexpensive...you
can get one for well under twenty
dollars and when you consider
what a great return you get on your
investment, this is one kitchen
appliance you really do need.
But if it really is impossible to
own a crockpot at this stage of your
culinary life, then here is a chart to
help you navigate a crockpot recipe
without the benefit of the crockpot
itself:
All crockpots or slow cookers
are NOT created equal. The follow-
ing is only a rule of thumb-your
mileage may vary.
Conventional Cooking Time: 15
to 30 minutes


Crockpot Cooking Time: 1.5
hours on HIGH 4 to 8 hrs on LOW
Conventional Cooking Time: 30
to 40 minutes
Crockpot Cooking Time: 3. to 4
hours on HIGH 6 to 10 hours on
LOW
Conventional Cooking Time: 50
minutes to 3 hours
Crockpot Cooking Time: 4 to 6
hours on HIGH 8 to 18 hours on
LOW
Most stews, pot roasts and other
uncooked meat/poultry and veg-
etable combinations will require at
least 8 hours on LOW or 4 to 6
hours on HIGH.
Remember I told you that I
made my first pot of split pea soup
in that crockpot? Here then is a
recipe that is pretty close to what I
made way back then and just as
good! We don't have many cooler
days left to enjoy split pea soup, so
hurry up and get yourself a pot
cooking now!
London Fog
Split Pea Soup
Serves 4-6
2 cups split peas, rinsed and picked
over
2 tablespoons olive oil
I medium onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, diced
1 Ig. celery stalk and tops, chopped
1 teaspoon thyme


10 cups water
1 ham hock or ham bone leftover
from Easter (or one smoked turkey
leg)
Salt and pepper to taste
Place cleaned split peas in a
slow cooker.
In a skillet, heat the oil over
medium heat. Saute onion, carrot
and celery for about 3 minutes,
then add to slow cooker. Add
thyme.
Fill the slow cooker with the
water, salt and pepper to taste, and
bury the ham hock, ham bone or
smoked turkey leg in the peas.
Cook on low heat setting for 8 to
10 hours.

NOTICE
Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-

guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that It is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-

you check with the Better

Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.
