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
www.sfwmd.gov 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
time.
For information, contact
the SFWMD Okeechobee Ser-
vice Center at (863) 462-5260
or (800) 250-420~0.
N.W 144th Ave.
to close temporarily
A drainage pipe will be
replaced under N.W. 144th
Avenue (East Grade) where it
joins N.W. 240th St., forcing
the closure of N.W. 144th Ave.
to all traffic on Wednesday,
May 2, from 9 a.m. until work
is finished in the late after-
noon.
For information, contact
the Okeechobee County Road
Department at (863) 763-
3514.
Lawn watering
restrictions set
Because of a critical water
shortage, lawn watering has
been restricted.
Residents whose addresses
are even numbered can water
from 4 until 8 a.m. on. Thurs-
days and Sundays. Odd num-
bered addresses can water
from 4 until 8 a.m. on
Wednesday and.Saturdays.
Vehicles and boats can be
washed between 4 and 8 a.m.
and between 5 and 7 p.m. on
the above days. Washing must
be done on, or must drain to,
a non-paved surface. It must
be done using a hose with an
automatic shut-off nozzle or
low-volume pressure cleaner.
Violators could be subject
to a fine.

County discusses bypass roads


Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Traffic congestion in the center
of town at the intersection of U.S.
441 and S.R. 70 is becoming more
of a problem as the county grows.
That congestion was a major
topic of the workshop held Thurs-
day afternoon, April 26, by the
Okeechobee County Board of
County Commissioners.
Earlier in the day the board held
an executive session to discuss
legal strategies in their lawsuit
against the Association of Retard-


"We don't have the local resources to fund those
projects."
John Cassels, county attorney


ed Citizens (ARC). Executive ses-
sions are closed to the public.
However, no action was taken as a
result of the special meeting.
Thursday afternoon's work-
shop was the second of four work-
shops scheduled to discuss possi-
ble changes to the county's land
development regulations.
The first land development
workshop, held March 22, dealt


with actual and perceived prob-
lems and areas of interest to do
research.
The board spent a considerable
length of time discussing bypass
roads at Thursday's workshop.
County attorney John Cassels
made a vocal note that bypasses
are great in concept but are
extremely expensive.

Osceola Middle School eighth graders viewed the program "Through the Eyes of a
Friend: Share the world of Anne Frank" which showed them the story of the Holocaust
through the eyes of the fictional character Sarah who eventually survived the Holo-
caust. Amanda Sayle (left) portrayed Sarah who interacted with the video renditions of
Anne Frank and other things that happened during that time period thdt were shown on
the projection screen.

Osceola Middle School
eighth 'graders and South Ele-
mentary School fifth graders
both heard presentations
through the Living Voices
organization that takes stu-
dents on an interactive journey
through significant events in
the history.
Amanda Sayle, from New
York, performs many different
programs to students and
other organizations through-
out the U.S.
The eighth graders viewed a
presentation' entitled
"Through the\Eyes of a Friend:
Share the world of Anne
Frank." The fifth graders
viewed a presentation entitled
"Island of Hope."'
"Through the Eyes of a
Friend: Share the world of
Anne Frank" displayed a por-
trait of young people in the
Holocaust. It was told from the


view, point of a fictional "best
friend" of Anne Frank.
According to their Website,
Sarah is a character inspired by
the experiences and testi-
monies of many individuals
who knew Anne Frank at cer-
tain points in her life, as well as
those young people who expe-
rienced the Holocaust
throughout Europe.
The students were taken
through Anne Frank's life from
an alternate perspective past
the typical stories associated
with her time that her family
hid in Holland from Nazi
forces.
They then saw the changes
in their lives that occurred
when the Nazis invaded Hol-
land. Both Sarah and Anne's
families were forced to go into
hiding because of their Jewish
heritage and religion.
Eventually, both families
were found and Sarah and
Anne met up once again in


Auschwitz a prison camp.
The strife and trials they went
through were shown to the
students by the interactive per-
former actually speaking as if
she was being tattooed, having
her head shaved and the many
other issues they had to deal
while they wondered if any of
their family members, from
whom they were separated,
were still alive.
In this story, Sarah was ulti-
mately liberated and reunited
with her brother and Anne
Frank's father, Otto Frank.
Mr. Frank eventually had his
daughter's diary published,
and it is now one of the most
read books in the world.
"Island of Hope" was pre-
sented to the SES fifth graders,
and portrayed a different
aspect of the Jewish run from
persecution in Russia.

Menge brothers kept dredging


Transcribed by MaryAnn
Morris
Second in series

Editor's note: Thanks to the
Clewiston Museum, we have
new information about the early
days of Lake Okeechobee with a
document written by Conrad
Menge in 1947. Mr. Menge was
82 years old when he wrote this.
The Lake Okeechobee area
was drained by Hamilton Dis-
ston, who had purchased 4 mil-
lion acres of land from the State
of Florida. As a condition of the
sale, Mr. Disston had to drain the
land for farming before he could
sell it. He paid 25 cents an acre.
The first dredge was built on
the west coast at Cedar Key by
two brothers, Joseph and J. Fred
Menge. Their father, Anton
Menge had designed the dredge:
the Menge Patented Dredge. This
dredge was 20 feet wide by 80
feet long and could cut out an
average of 250 lineal feet 24 feet
wide and six feet deep in muck in

ten hours.
This work was started on the
Caloosahatchee River near Ft.
Myers. Conrad Mange, who
eventually moved to Dearborn,
Michigan, wrote an account of
the work in 1947, when he was
82 years old.
After dredging up the
Caloosahatchee River and Lake
Hicpoochee, the brothers pre-
pared to begin the first canal on
the south end of the lake.
Early dredging
in the Lake


Okeechobee region
By Conrad Menge written
September 28, 1947

"A short canal was cut from
the southwest side of Lake
Hicpoochee to an area of Pine
timber. This wood was cut and
supplied to the Disston Company
to fuel the massive dredge. It was
called "Wood Lot Canal."
As soon as the wood canal
was finished, we moved the
dredge to the east side of
Hicpoochee and began cutting a
canal from there toward Sand
Point. (Sand Point later became
the town of Clewiston.) This
canal called Nine-Mile Canal was
started in about March, 1887. The
only purpose of this canal was to
provide a waterway for hauling
wood down the Wood Canal to
the new Location at Ritta River
where the next drainage canal
was to be dug. Otherwise it

resources to fund those projects,"
he said. .
He went on to say that bypass-
es are not a short term solution to
immediate traffic problems.
"We need data to see where
the traffic congestion is originating
and terminating," the attorney
said.
He said there was some
through traffic but asked if that
through traffic was actually caus-
ing the congestion at the intersec-
tion of S.R. 70 and U.S. 441.
"Until we can relieve the traffic
going through that point, we are


doomed," he told the commis-
sioners.
He advocated traffic relief in the
urban areas of town and suggest-
ed realignment of intersections
and stop signs to facilitate the, use
of alternate in-town routes by local
traffic. He said such changes could
be made for reasonable amounts
of money.
Mr. Cassels suggested parallel
roads to U.S. 441 and S.R. 70 that
people in town could use.
Commissioners looked at an

would have been necessary to haul
all of the wood up and across
Hicpoochee and through Three-
Mile Canal, then down and across
(Lake) Okeechobee to Ritta River.
By the time we finished digging
Nine-Mile Cal, the dredge was
worn out. We took it to the south
side of Lake Hicpoochee and aban-
doned it there. Perhaps today you
could still see some of the old hull
resting on the bottom.
The Disston Company then
built a new dredge at Kissimmee. It
was similar to the Menge Dredge,
sing a hopper and chute for
depositing mud on the bank. It was
e2uipped with tumbling wheels,
however, instead of sprockets and
it had two pontoons, one bolted on
each side to make it more stable.
The new dredge was dismantled
and shipped on barges from
Kissimmee down the Kissimmee
River to Lake Hicpoochee where it
was again set up.
The first work done with the
new dredge was to dig two cross
canals, their purpose being to drain
the marshes on either side of the
main canal to find out whether the
soil would grow rice.
Some rice was sewn and it
grew so tall on account of the rich
soil that the stalks fell over of their
own weight before the heads
matured. These rice stalks grew
over five feet tall. After this experi-
ence we gave up the idea of grow-
ing rice.
After digging the two cross
canals, the dredge was dismantled
again and towed down the Ritta


River by a little stern Wheel steam-
boat called 'The Rosalie.'"
Before beginning on the new
canal, which was to go from Ritta
River south toward Shark River, it
was decided to take soundings for
rock in order to determine the
exact course the canal should take.
We sent out two different parties to
make this sounding and they both
returned to the dredge at the end of
a couple of days, resorting that they
could. not get through the swamp
and sawgrass. My brother and I
and our cook, John Weatherford,
then decided that we would make
the sounding ourselves. We took
one canoe and sneak boat. Our
equipment consisted of three
woolen blankets, three rubber
blankets and three 6-inch boards,
each seven feet long. These boards
were placed across the canoe and
sneak boat at night as a bed. This
was during the dry season and
there was practically no water in
the marshes in the Everglades. We
.had to drag out boats practically all
the way. In spite of the dry weather,
the mosquitoes were so bad that
we had to go to bed as soon as the
sun went down to have the protec-
tion of our mosquito bar which
was suspended over our board
bed.
For 17 days we traveled making
soundings as we went along. By
this time our provisions were get-
ting to low that we had to turn
toward the pine timber and back
toward the dredge to get more sup-
plies. Fortunately, heavy rains set in
at about this time and we were
able to finish the soundings by
boat.

Russian Jewish girl told the stu-
dents of her life in Russia and
how they were persecuted by
the Czar's army.
Leah also noted many
things that the girls were not
allowed to learn such as how
to read and write. When her
oldest brother deserts the
Czar's army, Leah's parents
choose to escape Russia and
flee to America.
They end up on a steamboat

they overcome horrible condi-

They enter America through
Ellis Island in the New York
Harbor. The students learned
the criteria that America held
for immigrants coming to
America, where sometimes up
to 4,000 individuals per day
passed through Ellis Island.
Due to an eye infection,
once Leah and her family final-
ly made it to America she was
detained in the hospital to get
treatment for what is now
known as pink eye. The scary
aspects of not getting better
and being sent back weighed
on Leah's mind every day as
she tried to learn English, and
how to read and write.
She learned some English
and how to read from other
children in the hospital and
eventually made it back to her
family in New York City.

the intersection of U.S. 441 and

They also looked at proposed
bypass roads on a map includ-
ing the one recently proposed by
Haynes Williams.
In addition, the board looked
at alternate routes for downtown
traffic as opposed to through traf-
fic.
"The most effective bypass
route might be the most. expen-
sive," stated county planning
director Bill Royce.
Commissioner Ray Domer
noted that in many cases the
rights of way are very narrow,
which would make it difficult to
widen those roads.
"There is no solution to traffic
that is going to please everybody,"
Mr. Royce said.
Mr. Royce said that commer-
cial elements will be needed to
support residential development.
He said currently all grocery
stores and drug stores are on U.S.
441. The planning official suggest-
ed encouraging additional com-
mercial centers so all local traffic
doesn't have to come to town.
"It would be nice not to have
go to U.S. 441 for 90 percent of
our commercial needs," he said.

locations.
At the same time, Mr. Royce
cautioned against encouraging
too much commercial growth.
The board then turned to the
complicated situation in Viking
and the responsibilities of
Coquina Water Control District.
"They are not in the road and
bridge business," Mr. Cassels said
of Coquina.
"They maintain roads neces-
sary for drainage and flood con-
trol. They are not a road mainte-
nance district."
There is also the question of
who owns the roads. In many
cases, they are simply easements
granted by two adjoining property
owners.
"This is going to come back
and be laid at your feet eventual-
ly," asserted Mr. Cassels,
Commissioner Elvie Posey
said most residents of Viking want
a passable road, not a paved road.
It was the consensus of the
board that a letter be sent to
Coquina requesting that organiza-
tion to dedicate rights of way
within Viking to the public.
Next month commissioners
are scheduled to discuss plats,
subdivisions, acceptance of roads
and drainage systems and the
development of the county.

NHS plans induction ceremony


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee High School
branch of the National Honor
Society held one of its final meet-
ings of the year on Thursday, April
26.
At that meeting, students dis-
cussed the upcoming induction of
incoming sophomores and the


teacher appreciation luncheon.
The induction of new mem-
bers will be held May 1, at 7 p.m.
in the OHS auditorium. The cere-
mony will also recognize the
2007/08 club officers.
The induction gives the fami-
lies of those being inducted an
opportunity to take part in their
child's achievements.
The annual teachers' apprecia-


tion lunch is also fast approach-
ing. This event generally takes
place during finals week, but was
scheduled earlier this year on May
10.
Due to the lunch taking place
during a normal school day, the
lunch will only be held during fifth
period the normal lunch time
at the high school rather than
all day.


OHS seniors enjoy Grad Nite at Disney


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
Around 7 a.m. Sunday morning
students from Okeechobee High
School returned from a night of fun
at Disney's Magic Kingdom.
The annual Grad Nite event is
for seniors from across Florida and
surrounding states.
Throughout the night students
enjoyed not only the rides and
attractions of the theme park, but
concerts by bands such as The Fray
and Cheskob. Also available to stu-
dents were live DJ's, a free arcade
and karaoke.
The OHS senior class has held
events such as the annual Mz.


Senior competition and the Mock
Rock Talent Show to help raise the
necessary funds to finance this trip.
Tickets originally cost $50 for
the entrance fee, but due to the
efforts of the senior class, trip costs
were cut back to $25 per person.
That amount included transporta-
tion and the entrance fee. Other
than the cost of the ticket, students
were also advised to take extra
money to purchase food and any
merchandise that they desire.
Dress code for the trip in the
past has required students to dress
up and wear formal clothing. This
year, however, students were
allowed to wear jeans and dress in


more casual clothing provided that
the boys still wore collared shirts
and the girls wore blouses.
Students that were not dressed
appropriately were forced to go
home and change prior to board-
ing the bus.
Students were not allowed to
take book bags or drinks with
them, and were searched prior to
boarding the bus and then again
prior to entering the park,
This event offered the seniors
an opportunity to spend a relaxing
final night with their classmates
before they face final exams and
the stress of leaving school for the
last time.

4 OPINION The Okeehobee News, Sunday, April 29, 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
.con/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.
RIFF RAFF: This is to the lady that got her purse stolen and has a lot
of disappointment in Okeechobee. I've lived here 40 years and, like
you, have disappointment in Okeechobee. Go down the road and see
trash thrown out. It gets cleaned up and gets thrown out again. People
don't care. We get a lot of riff raff in this town and they are the ones
causing it to look ugly. They are the ones that steal. It used to be a nice,
quiet, little town before all this riff raff started coming in. Some of these
people have never been around a decent place in their lives and they
- don't take care of anything. What about property taxes? Okeechobee
has the highest property taxes I've ever seen in my life. Something
needs to be done about it now.

DON'T BLAME OKEECHOBEE: Regarding the article title "shattered
dream." I just finished reading your letter and I sympathize with you
very much on the loss of your purse and important papers. It is really
sad for anyone to lose anything, especially a loved one. I grew up in
Okeechobee and spent 24 long years in the Navy; have been to seven
foreign countries; speak three languages; and, lived in New Jersey for a
short time while assigned to the shipyard. However, your letter shifted
and you started criticizing Okeechobee so I would like to comment.
About the real estate market, having recently come back from Arizona
please don't blame that on Okeechobee because it is throughout the
states. I had experience sitting on the code enforcement board. They
are really friendly people there. You mentioned litter along Charles
Harvey Highway. We have a great program called Adopt-a-Highway.
There are many groups you can join to help and assist in picking up lit-
ter. Litter is a problem but don't blame that on Okeechobee. The South
Florida Water Management District was born in 1938 and experienced
many hurricanes. They drain the lake in anticipation of a hurricane
season that didn't happen. Please don't blame Mother Nature on
Okeechobee. You mentioned having problems building an 8 x 10
porch. If you get the permit I will build it free if you buy the materials.
That's the Okeechobee way. I also work on homes for Habitat. If you
live locally you are going to shop in town and eat at the local eateries
instead of doing some foolish thing like driving to Fort Pierce. I hope
you decide to stay in Okeechobee. Having lived throughout the world,
it is a much safer place than almost the entire state of New York and
New Jersey. You said paradise lost. I think you lost the paradise before.
you came to Okeechobee. Think about it. Your problem will go with
you wherever you go please don't blame that on Okeechobee.

culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging consumers to check
their refrigerators for Ole Mexican
Foods' Verole Queso Fresco
Authentic Mexican Crumbling

Mexican Crumbling Cheese. The
two products may be contaminat-
ed with E. coli bacteria.
The potential for this contami-
nation was determined after ran-

dom testing performed the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services revealed the
presence of E. coli bacteria in
samples both of the cheeses.
'The discovery of this problem
demonstrates the importance of
an integrated pro-active food safe-
ty program, where products from
stores and food processors are
not only inspected but tested in
our labs, as well," Bronson said.

warehouses in Florida from
which the products were distrib-

also notified the U.S. Food Drug
administration, which is responsi-
ble for the products in other
states.

In our last
article, we
by Bud Neese spoke about
what air
conditioning really is. The major compo-
nents of an effective air conditioning sys-
tem begin with selecting the correct
capacity and the right system.
One component that is often overlooked
is the duct system. There is no doubt that I
would much prefer to have a "no name" or
generic brand unit installed to a first rate
duct system rather than a top-rated unit


with a poor duct system. Look for more on
the duct system in coming articles.
Refrigerant piping/sizing is also
important when installing a split system
air conditioner.
Lastly, hiring a company that employs
professional installers with the latest
training is critical. Today's air condition-
ers are much more efficient and technical
than just a couple of years ago.
As you can see, there are many impor-
tant aspects to installing a first rate air
conditioning system!

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."


We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-
tor.
