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 initial-
ly being developed, some of
the links to the zip codes in
the Okeechobee area incor-
rectly indicated that ground-
water wells in the area were
also under mandatory
restrictions. Although every-
one is strongly encouraged to
conserve water, the use of
groundwater wells is not
restricted at this time.
For information, contact
the SF\VMD Okeechobee
Service Center at (863) 462-
5260 or (800) 250-4200.
Locks closing
due to low water
Beginning Friday, April 27,
the navigation locks at J&S,
Henry Creek, Lakeport and
Buckhead Ridge will be
closed due to low water levels.
The locks will remain
closed until the water levels
come back up.

The ban will include, but
not be limited to: campfires,
bonfires, burn barrels and the
burning of yard trash and fire-
works. The ban will be in

Drunk Driving Program: Drives point home

Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
The mock prom night auto crash held at Okeechobee High School Friday morning sup-
posedly involved two vehicles. These vehicles were provided by Guaranteed Auto Sal-
vage of Okeechobee.

Mock crash opens students' eyes


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
, The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO), in
conjunction with the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT), conducted a reckless
and aggressive driving pro-
gram at Okeechobee High
School Friday morning just
one day prior the to the O.H.S.
prom.
The program featured a
mock prom night crash for the
purpose of demonstrating the
results of aggressive or drunk
driving on the night of the
2007 Okeechobee High
School prom.
The demonstration was
staged through a joint effort by
the OCSO, FDOT, Okeechobee
County Fire/Rescue, Okee-
chobee Emergency Opera-
tions and the Okeechobee
High School drama club.
The simulated crash took
place on the student parking
access road, just east of the
visitor's bleachers at Brahman
Stadium. Two vehicles, sup-
plied by Guaranteed Auto Sal-
vage of Okeechobee, were
staged as if they had been in a
head-on collision.


Members of the Okeechobee High School Drama Club
helped to create a mock prom night auto crash for the
purpose of demonstrating the results of aggressive or
drunk driving. The program was held Friday, May 4, for
the school's junior and senior classes. The O.H.S. prom
will take place tonight at the KOA Lake Okeechobee
Resort Kampground.


In the scenario, one of the
vehicles was supposedly driv-
en by a male teen who had
been drinking while attending
the prom. In the vehicle with
him was his prom date. The
second vehicle contained a
couple who had left the prom


earlier and had stopped for ice
cream before going home.
According to the program,
the driver of the first vehicle lost
control of his vehicle, crossed
the center line and struck the

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Department of Educa-
tion has released the results of
the 2007 Florida Comprehensive

was a 6 percent increase in the
number of students scoring 3.5
and above.

City celebrates



Cinco de Mayo


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
Cinco de Mayo, which trans-
lates to the fifth of May, com-
memorates the victory of the
Mexican militia over the French
army at the Battle of Puebla in
1862.
It is not considered Mexico's
Independence Day as many
may think. The Mexican Inde-
pendence Day is Sept. 16.
Cinco de Mayo honors the
bravery and victory of General
Ignacio Zaragoza's smaller, out-
numbered militia at the Battle of
Puebla that occurred when the
French invaded their shores in
an attempt to take over Mexico.
While Mexico had finally
gained independence in 1821
from Spain, it had been a diffi-
cult and long journey during


which they became indebted to
several nations, including Spain,
England and France.
They had also settled a simi-
lar debt to the United States after
the Mexican-American War.
France demanded repayment
from Mexico and initiated their
invasion by marching toward
Mexico.
The French army encoun-
tered strong resistance near the
city of Puebla at the Mexican
forts of Loreto and Guadalupe.
While there were only approxi-
mately 4,500 men in the Mexi-
can armed militia, they were
able to stop and defeat the well
outfitted French army of 6,500
soldiers.
This victory marked a glori-

Man arrested on felony coke charges


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A 22-year-old Okeechobee
man was booked into the Okee-
chobee County Jail Wednesday
afternoon on drug possession
charges.
Tony Lee Frost, N.E. 16th Ave.,
was arrested May 2 by Deputy Roy
Gilchrist of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
on felony charges of possession
of cocaine with intent to sell. He
was also charged with the misde-
meanors of possession of mari-
juana under 20 grams and posses-


sion of drug paraphernalia.
Frost's bond was set at
$11,000.
In his arrest
report, Deputy
Gilchrist indi-
cates that
while on patrol
with OCSO
Detective Rick
Durfee in the
Douglas Park
area he saw Tony
Frost sitting on Frost
the back of a
chair. Frost, states the report, was
smoking a suspected marijuana


cigar (blunt).
The deputy states that Frost
approached the unmarked OCSO
unit and was placed under arrest.
He still had the blunt in his hand,
said the report.
A search of Frost's person
turned up a cigarette pack that
was void of cigarettes but con-
tained a hard-plastic container.
Inside the container were six, $20
pieces of suspected crack
cocaine, said the deputy's report.
A field test of the substance indi-
cated a positive result for the pres-
ence of cocaine.
The report goes on to say that


Detective Durfee found five small
baggies in the front pocket of
Frost's pants that contained a
green leafy substance. A field test
of the substance indicated a posi-
tive result for the presence of mar-
ijuana.
Also found on the unemployed
Frost was $180 in cash. The man
reportedly told the deputies he
earned the money cutting grass
and selling necklaces.
Deputy Gilchrist's report states
that the suspected cocaine
weighed 1.3 grams, while the sus-
pected marijuana weighed 4.3
grams.

"This is our opportunity to part-
ner on a very important initiative
for conservation in our areas,"
said Michelle Azel, Wal-Mart's sen-
ibr manager for public affairs.


Wal-Mart media spokesperson
Kory Lundberger said that
SFWMD had furnished Wal-Mart
Radio with three or four public
service announcements that will
be rotated.
Because of the changing condi-
tions, generic announcements are
used on water conservation that
refer listeners to SFWMD's web-

more specific information,
according to Julie Huber, media
relations specialist with SFWMD.
She said whether or not the
announcements will continue

cided at this time. Toward the end
of the month, SFWMD will evalu-
ate the situation and possibly
approach Wal-Mart about contin-
uing the announcements.

A Thought To
SRemember N

We live in a mechanized world,
everyone agrees to this.
Just forty years ago, when the
farm was beginning to become
mechanized, the farmers made this
statement,
"They may get
all kinds of
new-fangled
farm machin-
ery, but there
will always be
the need for a
mule." Well,
time has
By Paul proven them
wrong. The
Buxton mule has been
replaced and
has all but left the American scene.
There are some things, howev-
er, that time doesn't change. These
are honesty, integrity, sincerity,
love, devotionand a hundred other
qualities that are essential to happi-
ness. Our world may change
beyond our wildest dreams, but
these basic truths will always be
necessary.
To live contented and happy,
these ingredients must be in abun-
dance in all our lives. These cannot
be replaced.
Thought to Remember:
All foundations have one
thing in common: they begin
at the ground.

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.

WE'RE TO BLAME: To the person who wants to have the boycott
on gasoline purchases: you're right, they did try that in the '70s and
gas prices were not affected at all over except for two or three days.
Boycotts never work. So you buy your gas one day rather than anoth-
er. It isn't going to hurt the oil industry one way or the other. What we
all need to do is use less fuel. Buy cars that get better gas mileage and
keep pushing for alternative fuels. We were told in the '70s that we
would become more and more dependant on Middle East oil if we
didn't do anything. Guess what: it happened. This is not the oil com-
panies or George Bush. This is selfish Americans who want their big
monster vehicles. Oil companies make far more money in foreign
countries than they do in the U.S. We're doing the same thing with
water. There will come a day when we will beg for gasoline at $3 a
gallon, and drinking water at about the same price. We have no one
but ourselves to blame.

ROADS: For those of you who don't like living in Okeechobee, you
are welcome to your opinion and I am welcome to mine which is:
there are multiple roads out of town so pick one, get on it and don't
look back.

LAWSUIT: I can hardly believe what I read in the Sunday issue of
the Okeechobee News. It just can't be that our county commission-
ers are actually suing the honest citizens of our county. I was dumb-
founded. What in this wide world do our county commissioners
want from these poor, helpless citizens? Someone please tell me. All
I can say is shame on all of you. I sure know who not to vote for in the
next election.

TAX HIKE: The Democratic congress is seriously considering a
series of tax increases. Their proposal calls for elimination of every
tax cut in the past seven years totaling $400 billion. It would be the
largest tax increase in the United States' history. Tax brackets would
increase substantially in every bracket even for low income fami-
lies. The working poor would be assessed a staggering 15 percent.
What ever happened to the promise that only the rich would be hit?
Instead it will be tax increases for absolutely everybody. The mar-
riage penalty tax will force moms and dads to pay federal income tax
at a higher rate than unmarried people living together. The average
taxpayer faces an increase of $3,035 under the Democrat's plan. If
you have a family of four with an income of $60,000 per year the
taxes will rise from $3,030 to $4,893 an increase of 61 percent. Is it
any wonder that Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reed never mentioned this
during the 2006 campaign? Remember, vote Democrat.

FLAT TIRE: Thank you to the officer and his wife for helping my
husband and me when our car broke down with a flat tire Sunday.
OnStar couldn't find anyone to help us. The Lord certainly watched
out for us.

WHERE ARE THEY?: I want to know where Al Sharpton and
Jessie Jackson are about dealing with the black corrections officer
that let three blacks beat up two white inmates. They were on TV
hollering about everybody else. Why aren't they hollering about
what the blacks did to the whites?

TRASH: Now that 36th Street has had new blacktop put down I
think what we need to do is put two garbage cans in every block so
those people who throw all that stuff out can have a place to put their
garbage. This is ridiculous. It's time we speak up and do something
about it.

DO NOT CALL: My friends and I have been getting several
unwanted solicitations calls from various companies. Could you pro-
vide us with the number to call to request that our phone number
not be made available to these people?
Editor's Note: You can call 800-930-7252, or register online at
www.donotcalcompliance.com.

IDOLS: Christian people, who do you worship? God, who art in
heaven, or not of God that is set upon the earth? God said in his word
not to worship an idol god. There are people in this United States of
America who worship an idol god, which is the Statue of Liberty -
one of the biggest idol gods in the USA. Even our government wor-
ships it so that they put its picture on our Social Security checks. Not
only would I like to see this picture of the Statue of Liberty removed
from my check, I would like to see this idol god dismantled and sent
back to the country that sent it over here. An idol god is any graven
image that is made out of wood, stone, silver or any other material
that is stood up to be worshipped. Here is what is going to happen to
you if you worship this image, read Revelations 14:11.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Stu Beebe
Director of Christian Education,
First United Methodist Church
Overheard at a hospital;
"Good morning, sir. I'm from a
local church, and I was just stop-
ping by to see if there was any way
in which we can help while you're
here under hospital care."
"No thanks, I'm not religious."
"Well, this is not really about
religion, sir. I mean, there's a world
of difference between knowing
and trusting Jesus Christ and reli-
gion."
"How do you mean?"
"Well, there's a trial going on


right now, and as I'm sure you have
heard, the wages of sin is death."
"Oh, I don't believe that stuff..."
"Sadam Hussein didn't believe
in the court that tried him either.
And look how he ended up."
"So what am I on trial for, my
sins," "What sins?"
"It really doesn't make any dif-
ference. We're all sinners because
we're all imperfect. And the prose-
cuting attorney will press for the
death penalty no matter hovw trivial
that sin may seem to us."
"Who is the prosecuting attor-
ney?"
"His name is Satan. We read all
about him in the Bible in the Book


of Job."
"Oh, yeah...I remember that
guy."
"The point is, that the only
defense attorney you can get to
argue against Satan is Jesus Christ."
"Why is that?"
"Because He sacrificed Himself
and His own blood for our sins.
And the only way we can get Him
to intercede for us is to admit our
sin, turn to God, and trust in Jesus
Christ for our salvation.
"How does that get me off the
hook with the prosecutor?"
"Only Jesus Christ's blood is
acceptable as payment for your
transgressions. No other offer will

be considered."
"So that's the plea bargain?"
"I guess you could call it that.
Interested?"
"Oh, I don't know. Let me think
about it."
"If you don't say yes, you're say-
ing no. Think about that."
"I'm just not ready to do any-
thing right now."
"Well let me ask you a question
sir. How long have you been here
in the hospital now? A week?"
Two?"
"Yeah, almost two."
"Do you have any idea how
many people have died in hospitals
in the last two weeks?"
"No, how many?"
"I don't know either, sir, but I'm
just saying, can you afford to wait?"
Can anybody, afford to wait?
That trial we were talking about is
going on whether you have an
advocate or not. Don't you want
somebody to be on your side?"
"Oh, I haven't been so bad.
There are lots of people worse than
me."
'We're all sinners, sir. Here's my
card. Give me a call when you are
ready to live."
"What do you mean by that?"
"Well, as they say, the wages of
sin is death. And unless you choose
life in Jesus Christ, you will suffer an
endless suffering death because of
your sin, no mater how small. Sin is
sin. Period. And besides, isn't it
smart to cover all the bases?"
"Oh, all right, just in case.. .what
do I have to do?"
"Well, to start with, pray along
with me..."


arhte we %v I .poke -YI
about hat air
conditioning o n in L
really is. The
major compo-
nents of an effective air condi-
tioning system 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 uct 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 condi-
tioners are much more efficient
and technical than just a couple
of years ago.
As you can see, there are
many important aspects to
installing a first rate air condi-
tioning system!

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 Hymern
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 aford 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.

Okeechobee Main Street pre-
sented Haynes and Susan Williams
with their official Main Street Mural
and Visual Arts program plaque.
Main Street's first mural project,
Williams Cattle Drive 1937, was
painted on the William's Building
located on U.S. 441 N.
This is the official plaque that
will be placed on all Main Street's
Mural and Visual Arts projects. The
plaque, contains information
regarding the mural, including title,
mural number, date, sponsors and
artists. These plaques will be useful
as the mural program grows to
identify the projects and aid in
future tour plans.
Main Street's second mural
program continues to grow, and
is sponsored by the Okeechobee
Historical Society. The mural is
titled The Railroad Arrives -
1915." The mural is being painted
on the Robinson Electric Building,
located in downtown Okee-
chobee on U.S. 441 S.
The Main Street Mural and Visual
Arts committee has selected an
artist to paint their third mural proj-
ect, which will be located on, the
Embarq Building on U.S. 441 S. The
theme is centered on Okeechobee's
history in the telephone industry
The third mural will begin after
the second mural is presented to
our community.

Young artist

skilled in

cowboy art
You could say that Jarrod Hair
has always had a creative imagi-
nation. That was apparent
when, in the fifth grade, he suc-
cessfully designed and con-
structed a mouse-friendly trap
for his teacher
Ms. Whipple.
Since then
many others
have tested his
trap with the
same result.
At the,
young age of
12, Jarrod's
father taught Jarrod
him to weld. Hair
Now 16 and a
freshman at the Okeechobee
Freshman campus the seventh-
generation Cracker cowhunter
makes a line of heritage-inspired
cowboy art from horseshoes.
All of his original pieces
- including lamps, bullriding stat-
ues, crosses, candleholders and
Christmas trees have an Old
West flavor and truly reflect the
Pioneer spirit that is still alive
today in Okeechobee. With
downed Cypress trees after the
2005 hurricanes, he built himself
a queen size bed. His current
project is coffee tables imprinted
With family cattle brands. He
also designs unique one-of-a
kind brands for cattle or art.
Jarrod plans on serving the
Okeechobee community as a
firefighter/EMT.
Jarrod's artwork can be seen
on display at Hair & Company,
Affordable Art Gallery and the
Gun Shop of Okeechobee.
