SFWMD web site
offers water info
Due to the extreme water
shortage situation in South
Florida, water restrictions
have been placed throughout
the region based on impact to
the resource and they vary
from one area to the next.
The South Florida Water
Management District
(SFWMD) recently imple-
mented an interactive option
on their web site at that allows
residents to enter their zip
code to find the water restric-
tions for their area.
As the web site was initially
being developed, some of the
links to the zip codes in the
Okeechobee area incorrectly
indicated that groundwater
wells in the area were also
under mandatory restrictions.
Although everyone is strongly
encouraged to conserve
water, the use of groundwater
wells is not restricted at this

County, cattlemen near accord

Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County Cat-
tlemen's Association appears to
be closer to reaching an agree-
ment for use of the Okeechobee
County Agri-Civic Center for their
The cattlemen met with the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners in a
workshop session to discuss that
issue on Thursday, April 26.
Since the evening meeting
was a workshop, no official

action could be taken. However,
it appears that a final agreement
could look considerably different
from the draft agreement pro-
posed by county attorney John
Cassels and could end up costing
the county more money.
The cattlemen originally pro-
posed a lease agreement at the
Oct. 26, 2006, commission meet-
ing. Then on Jan. 26, commis-
sioners voted to present the cat-
tlemen a counterproposal
drafted by Mr. Cassels.
The two groups met Thurs-

day evening to discuss Mr. Cas-
sels' proposal.
From the discussion, it
appears the cattlemen would
end up leasing the facility for
fewer days than originally
requested and paying the stan-
dard rate, while the county
would foot the entire bill for
requested improvements.
Mr. Cassel's proposed agree-
ment called for revenue sharing.
The county would receive an
agreed upon percentage of all
net profits over a certain amount

Angel Food: Aiding families across U.S.

Church host site for food ministry

By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The First Baptist Church of
Okeechobee will be extending
their outreach to the communi-
ty by becoming a host site for
Angel Food Ministries.
Angel Food Ministries is a
non-profit, non-denominational
organization that began in 1994
in Monroe, Ga. At that time, it
served 34 families.
Angel Food Ministries is an
organization that provides qual-
ity groceries that total an aver-
age retail value of $50' for only
How does this work?
Angel Food Ministries buys
food in bulk, the same as a
restaurant or grocery store.
There are no applications or
qualifications required to order

through Angel Food Ministries.
According to their website,
one half million families were
fed in December through Angel
Food Ministries. By the end of
2006, over 500,000 families
were fed in 32 states.
The food is of the same high
quality that one would pur-
chase at the regular grocery
store. Angel foods are "name-
brand" foods that are never sec-
ond-hand, damaged or out-of-
date goods. There are no cans
without labels, no day-old
breads and no produce that is
almost too ripe.
Each month Angel Food
sends a menu to host sites. A
sample menu typically includes
a few different types of meat
such as different types of steaks,
pork chops, bacon and chicken.
The menu also includes vegeta-

bles fresh, canned or frozen
- and fresh fruit, such as
apples and bananas.
There is also one dessert
item with every order.
Also available are specialty
boxes such as steaks, chicken
and pork. The specialty items
also vary by the monthly menu
and could include a grill box
with various meats, surf and turf
or shrimp and steak, or even a
gourmet coffee box.
Specialty boxes are available
with the purchase of one regu-
lar box. These specialty boxes
range in prices from $14-$18.
According to their website,
generally one regular box of
food assists in feeding a family
of four for about one week, or a
single senior citizen for almost

each calendar year.
Wes Williamson spoke for
the cattlemen.
He said his organization
wanted an agreement that
would be good for the taxpayers
as well as the cattlemen.
He said the cattlemen did a lot
of revenue sharing through the
livestock show and other charita-
ble activities. He said they would
prefer not to do revenue sharing
in this agreement.
"Our feeling on revenue shar-
ing is that our profit is up and

down and it's hard to put a han-
dle on," Mr. Williamson said.
"That is going to be tough to get
by our membership."
Although he said he could not
speak for the membership of his
organization, he seemed to favor
paying the standard daily rate of
about $1,000, plus $100 for utili-

Okeechobee dredger recalls

'wild time' around the lake

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Following the devastation
wrought on the region by the
hurricanes of 1926 and 1928
Congress asked the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to build a
taller dike around the flood-
prone areas of Lake Okee-
chobee from Port Mayaca to
Moore Haven, and from the
Kissimmee River to Nubbin
The Corps sent floating
towns known as dredgers from
as far away as Louisiana to raise
the level of the dike. Each one of
these dredgers carried 30-50
men who lived, ate, worked
and slept on these boats.
The dredgers had large suc-
tion pumps that pulled in grav-
el, rock, limestone, sand, shell
and water from the lake's bot-
tom and blew the mixture out
of large pipes onto the original

small dike around the lake. The
plan was to raise the dike to 25
feet above the Big 'O's' banks.
Bobby Burton came to Flori-
da from Louisiana in 1934 on
the New Orleans district dredge
boat, U.S. Dredge Gulfport.
The Gulfport dropped
anchor in Pahokee and began
to set up shop. Shortly after
work began, a representative of
the Works Progress Administra-
tion (WPA) arrived and
announced that everyone with-
out civil service papers would
have to be laid off. After much
discussion and argument, it was
agreed to lay off only those who
had less than four years work
service with the company.
Mr. Burton had only been
working on the dredge for two
to three years. As a result of the
agreement, he and six other
men were let go.
"I wasted no time going over
to Moore Haven and signing on

with the U.S. Dredge Welatha.
We worked 12 hours a day,"
stated Mr. Burton. "I worked on
the dredges from 1930 to 1943,
when I went into the Army."'
During his time on the
dredges, Mr. Burton saw a great
deal of the area from Pahokee
north to Port Mayaca.
"There were hardly any
houses throughout the area.
There was a great deal of fishing
on the lake back then, but not a
lot of alligators," he recalled.
"On the weekends, the fisher-
men came into town and
bumped heads with the ranch-
ers. It was a wild time. Finally,
things quieted down and we
moved the dredge around to
Canal Point in 1940."
In 1940, Mr. Burton got the
opportunity to travel with one of Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
the dredges to Bermuda. He Okeechobee News/Lorna dablonski

Low water blamed for lock closings News Briefs

Four navigation locks on the
north shore of Lake Okeechobee
will be closed to navigation as of
Friday, April 27, due to safety haz-
ards caused by low water levels
in the lake.
These navigation locks, which
are operated by the South Florida
Water Management District, will
remain closed until water levels
in Lake Okeechobee have
returned to safe operating levels.
The S-135 navigation lock at J
& S Fish Camp, G-36 navigation
lock at Henry Creek, S-127 navi-
gation lock at Buckhead Ridge
and S-131 navigation lock at
Lakeport will be closed to boat
traffic because of safety issues -

said Mr. Williamson.
He went on to say it might be
better for them to lease at the
daily rate.
The cattlemen also appear to
have backed off from their origi-
nal request of 26 days a year. Mr.
Williamson said the 26 days was
just a starting place and asked
about leasing the area just for the

Originally, the cattlemen
requested time to accommodate
the Speckled Perch Rodeo, the
Labor Day Rodeo, Southeastern

county the most money is in

dise. Mr. Burton worked with one
of the dredges to dredge between
two small islands, to fill in and cre-
ate one larger island. The purpose
of this dredging was to create
enough land to build an airbase.
By the time Mr. Burton left the
dredges and went into the Army,
he and his wife had two sons.
When he was released from the
service, he realized that all the
traveling with the dredges would
not be good for his growing fami-
ly. They needed a place to put
down roots, and where his chil-
dren could attend school on a reg-

and on the lakeward approach to
the navigation locks.
Low water levels inside the
lock chamber at these navigation
locks has caused the concrete sill
at the entrance in some
instances, and the manatee pro-
tection devices in others, to
become a navigation hazard.
Additionally, the lakeward
approach to these navigation
locks has become either dry or
shallow enough that boaters will
not be able to access the lake.

had the cattlemen and the county
splitting the cost.
The cattlemen would be
required to pay $50,000 upon exe-
cution of the agreement and
$25,678.13 annually for 10 years.
"It is reasonable, if this is to be
a partnership, for each side to pay
half," Mr. Cassels said. "So far, we
have not had any events that
needed the seats we have. You are
paying back half of an investment

Mr. Williamson countered that
the requested seating increase
would be worth considerably
more to the county than the cat-
tlemen. He said during the life of
the building, the increased seat-
ing capacity would be needed.
County Commission Chair-
man Ray Domer noted that the
cattlemen would have to pay con-
siderably more to update their
present facility than the proposed
agreement would require them to
pay to the county.
Agri-civic center manger Pete
Keough said three promoters
were awaiting the outcome of
these negotiations. He said they
did not want to bring in big name
entertainment without increased
seating capacity. He said people
go to arenas with larger seating
capacity, and that the present

With fewer seats, ticket prices
have to be higher, he added.
Mr. Keough named several
events brought to Okeechobee by
the cattlemen. He said promoters
have to charge a higher ticket
price with fewer seats and he is
confident other events would fill
the seats.

Three commissioners Noel

Clif Betts were in favor of the
county footing the entire bill for
the expansion. Commissioners
Domer and Elvie Posey expressed
reluctance to spend more money
on the facility.
"I like the lease idea-- I'm not
too keen on spending money,"
said Mr. Domer.
"Let's put in seats, let's work

the variance requested will not
be harmful to the water
resources of the district.
If the event takes place with-
out an approved variance, the
organization will be deemed out
of compliance with the water

a citation and fine.
Another major area of confu-
sion is whether or not wells are
affected by the restrictions.

After the boys graduated and
left home, the urge to be on the
water once again took hold of Mr.
Burton. He gave up his business
and went back to work for the
Army Corps of Engineers.
Mr. Burton worked on the
cross-Florida Canal from the St.
John's River to Tampa. During the
Nixon presidency, the project was
stopped and Mr. Burton headed to
Texas to work the locks in

He stayed there for three years,

Still unresolved is the cattle-

that the faculty was bought and

tion would be more than happy
for the Specked Perch Rodeo to

Commissioner Betts asked
that if the cattlemen sold their
present facility if part of the pro-
ceeds could go to the county for
use at the agri-civic center.
Mr. Williamson could not
answer that question.
Mark Brandel asked what the
cattlemen would do with their old
facility if they moved to the agri-

Mr. Williamson replied that
they had no immediate plans for

General Bill McCollum recently
launched a new initiative as part of
his efforts to protect Florida
teenagers from the possible dan-
gers often lurking beneath the sur-
face of the internet. The Internet
Student Advisory Council is intend-
ed to match technology-savvy
teenagers with the Attorney Gener-
al's Child Predator Cybercrime
Unit's law enforcement team. The
goal of the partnership is for stu-
dents to provide investigators with
valuable information when investi-
gating cybercrime against children.
"I am excited about the oppor-
tunities this program presents us
and look forward to the partner-
ships between our teenagers and
our investigators," said Attorney
General McCollum. "Today, we are
taking important steps to combat
this continuously evolving criminal
activity. The students' knowledge
will be a valuable resource
because they are truly the most
knowledgeable users of the inter-
Investigators with the Cyber-
Crime Unit will work closely with
the students on the council to iden-
tify new internet trends, including

those that could be potentially
harmful to young people. Addition-
ally, the students will share infor-
mation to enable law enforcement
to stay abreast of popular teen
activity online while protecting
children from internet predators.
Students can apply to the Cyber-
Crime Unit to join the council
which is expected to expand
statewide at a later date.
The CyberCrimes Against Chil-
dren Act of 2007 (SB 1004) was
unanimously passed in both cham-
bers of the Florida- Legislature
recently. The bill, when signed into
law, will significantly strengthen
penalties for those who use the
internet to sexually solicit on chil-
dren. This bill now positions Flori-
da as a national leader in the legal
fight against child pornography
and internet solicitation of chil-
dren. According to the act, penal-
ties are increased for the posses-
sion or distribution of child
pornography online and a new,
separate penalty is created against
internet predators who communi-
cate with a child online and then
travel to meet that child for the spe-
cific purpose of further abusing
sexually him or her.

ing e-mail to You can also mall submis-
sions to Okeechobeeee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
DONT JUDGE: This is regarding the call about women who dress in
low cut dresses and blouses. I just wonder who died and left her in
charge. Does she know the Bible verse that says judge not lest ye be
judged? Besides that, maybe if she would get out and do a little bit of
ministry work, she would find out that everyone is Okeechobee is not a
Christian. Instead of judging people she should be trying to help them.

HORSE: Stop complaining and stop harassing people about the
horse. You make it sound like she is a nuisance to the community. She
is a beautiful Appaloosa filly that we enjoy watching. She is also the 4-H
project of the young man who owns her and it will teach him leader-
ship and responsibility. She should be kept where she is now so they
will know she is safe in her own pasture each day and night. We hope
the county commissioners and everyone else will recognize the value
and benefits that this horse brings to this child and his family.

HIT AND RUN: Will the person at Buckhead Community Center
who hit my little brown car the other day please contact us at (863) 467-
0173. I can't believe that people would hit and run in this town.

GATORS: If you want to see gators, go to Nubbin Slough. There are
hundreds of them out there. What is our government going to do about
the water and the gators?

ANIMALS: I wonder what our commissioners are going to do out in
Buckhead Ridge about having horses in a residential area. I wonder
who you can contact to overrule it. What is the next problem going to
be? Are they going to put pigs and chickens in with it? I think they need
to do something.

COUNTRY: I am a Glades County resident and have lived in Buck-
head Ridge my entire life. I can remember that where these houses sit
now there was nothing but horse farms and cows. I would like for these
people who are complaining to look back to that time. This is country
and if they don't like it they should go back to the city. Glades County
has always been involved in ag. We have always had 4-H for the chil-
dren and this is a rural community. This is part of what makes us
unique. I live in the area where the horse. It is a pleasure to see the
horse and it is a pleasure to see children's faces when they walk around
the block and notice the horse. This is not the only horse in Buckhead
Ridge so why is this person being singled out? There are pigs, pheas-
ants, guinea hens, cows, chickens and peacocks in Buckhead Ridge
and nobody says anything about them only one poor little horse. We
really feel sorry for this horse and I wish people would get a life and
leave him alone.

DONATIONS: I was watching TV and I see where they want us to
donate money to Katrina victims. I don't think we need to send any
more money out there.

DISCOVERY: They have discovered another planet just like earth.
What I'm worried about is do they want to go mess that one up too?

WIFE: I would just like to say I love my wife an acre-and-a-quarter,
and that's whole lot.

INSECTS: We have a log home and latelyawe've-been plagued with
insects that look a lot like bumblebees, but I don't think they are. They
are boring holes into the wood of the logs boour home. Is there any-
thing we can paint on the wood that would stop these bees from boring
into the wood?
Editor's Note: We suggest you contact Pat Miller with the Okee-
chobee County Extension Office. His phone number is (863) 763-6469.

IRAQ: President Bush wants to suck up every dollar we have in this
country and put it in Iraq. If the Congress and the Senate turn him
down, he needs to put up his own money. He always brags about being
friends with the real rich. Let the real rich support the war, including
him. They darned sure don't put their own kids over there.

RACIAL MIXING: This is about the people glorifying race mixing.
God made races for a reason. If everybody was the same we would be
bored wouldn't we? If you look at every country that has been race
mixed they are third world countries. If you want to be a third world
country keep it up, because that is what we are turning into.

SOCIAL SECURITY: Now that our trusted elected officials have
siphoned off most of the money from Medicare and Social Security,
which is paid for by the working American taxpayers, I just kind of won-
der what they will do for an encore. At least they are going to save a lot
on INS and deportation and border control. Mexico will have to take
care of that. They will really be leaving here and that's not bad.

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:

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. 0

Reflections From the Pulpit

Very Reverend Dr. Edward
Weiss, OSB, APC
Church of Our Saviour
Easter is not just a day, but a
season. Sometimes we forget
this truth, but the significance of
this pivotal event in human his-
tory should never pass, it should
never become "business, as
usual". The Lectionary readings,
for the Third Sunday of Easter
(RCL) oblige serious thought.,
For most of the secular world
Easter, especially Easter Sunday,:
is only the end of another busi-
ness week. Some religious com-
ponents may obviously take
place, but the greatest interest
generated seems to be found in
commerce. Easter sales- are
often reported as "off the chart"
and "bargains" are to be found
everywhere. For many, the sea-
son has been reduced to the
observation of Palm Sunday and
Easter Sunday. Unfortunately,
that may be said of many Chris-
tians also.
The season of Lent coupled
with the events of Holy Week tra-
ditionally have a far different and
greater effect On the worldwide-
Christian community in general,
rather than the secular. For most
believers this has been a season
of deep spiritual reflection,
prayer, fasting, abstinence, and
special observances. The Easter
Triduum of Holy Thursday, Good
Friday, and Holy Saturday, recall
and relive each dramatic event
recorded in the history of those
days. The absolute zenith is"
reached, however, on Easter
Sunday, when we celebrate the
resurrection of our Lord Jesus
Christ. This is the foundation
upon which Christianityistianity is built,
the risen Christ, and it is what
most of us believe. Unfortunate-
ly, not all of us.
God's promise of deliverance
to sinful humankind, acting in
the person of Jesus, in an
expression of unexpected and
costly love is fulfilled on the
cross at Calvary. We are
redeemed by the blood of the
lamb. It doesn't end there! As the
most famous scriptural passage
has it, "For God so loved the.
world that he gave his only
begotten Soh, to the:end that all
that believe in Him should not-
perish, but have everlasting life
(Jn 3Al6)" Redemption for
humankind is only made possi-
.ble because of His sacrifice on
-'... the cross. The memory should.'
never lade' :. .
w The Easter acclamation,
"Alleluia. Christ is ris risen", pro-
claimed by the celebrant atwior-'.
ship and followed 'by the
response of the faithful, "The.
Lord is risen indeed." "Alleluia",
is the greeting of the church for
the next 50 days. At least, that is
What it ought to be, if we truly
believe what we say. Unfortu-,
nately, the remembrance of East-
S er Sunday and what it signifies
for us tends to fade very quickly.
In that secular world in which
we live the Easter bunnies have
been put away for this year, the
colored eggs eaten, decorations
taken down, special clothes pur-
chased for that day or season are
in the closet, the turkey and
dressing are only memories, the
chocolates and jelly beans have

been consumed, visiting family
members have returned home,
and we once again find our-
selves in the mode of "business
as usual". How quickly the
remembrance of His tremen-
dous sacrifice for all humanity is
forgotten. The secular is seen to
trump the sacred once again.
Is it any wonder that the disci-
ples should have had a similar
experience? Did not John the
Beloved tell the story of Peter
and the others going back to
"business as usual" on that day?
(Jn 21:j-19). These same men
when. first called by Him, were
ordinary men, with ordinary
families, living in an ordinary vil-
lage, with ordinary wives, ordi-
nary children, and were honest
and hard working fishermen.
Once called by Him, they fol-
lowed Him. For three years they
gave up everything for Him, lived
with Him, walked with Him,
worked with Him, were instruct-
ed by Him, and performed every:
function that He gave them. Still
in all, they were only ordinary
men. In the end, however, the
deserted Him and failed Him.
Their story of failure is well
chronicled in history as recorded
in Sacred Scripture. What about
our story? Is it any different? It
should be!
The gospel account of the
post-resurrection appearance of
Jesus that day on the shore of
the Sea of Tiberias (the third
time according to John) found
the disciples following Peter
when he said, 'I am going, fish-
ing!" Why? Overcome by grief,
fear, and disbelief in the out-
come of that three year journey
with Jesus, they returned to the
only lives that they know, to fish-
ing, to "business as usual". For
them, the fantastic adventure
was over, or so they thought.
The Gospels tell a different story.
That special story, full of mir-

acles, marvel, and love contin-
ued. In the end, a truly repentant
Simon Peter, mindful of his
threefold denial of Jesus, honest-
ly answers the threefold query of
the Christ, "Simon, son of John,
do you love me more than
these?" His answers restore him
to a right relationship with the
Lord. The commission given to

Peter from the Lord is the same
for us today.
Lastly, he is told that his disci-
pleship will be costly, his life!
History informs us that it was so.
What was it all about? Belief in
the Risen Lord and relationship
with Him. No "business as
usual." Discipleship is costly. Are
we prepared to pay that cost?
