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 implement-
ed an interactive option on
their web site at
www.sfwmd.gov that allows
residents to enter their zip code
to find the water restrictions 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,
S the use of groundwater wells is
not restricted at this time.
For information, contact the
SFWMD 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 dosed
due to low water levels.
The locks will remain closed
until the water levels come
back up.
County-wide burn
banissued
Due to drought conditions
and heavy frost damage to ve.-
etation, a county-wide burn
ban has been issued. '- ':
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 effect
until further notice.
Violation of the burn ban is
punishable by a .fine not
exceeding $500, imprisonment
in the county jail for a term not
exceeding 60 days, or both.
A burn ban has also been
issued for the City of Okee-
chobee.
For information, contact

Florida history: The Menge Brothers' last canal


Transcribed by
MaryAnn Morris
Editor's note: Around the
turn of the century, the Menge
Brothers, J. Fred, Joseph and
Conrad, were employed by the
Disston Company to build the
necessary dredges (after their
father, Anton Menge's patent-
ed design) and then to dig the
canals needed to lower the
level of Lake Okeechobee and
drain the surrounding marsh-
es so that the rich soil could be
turned in to profitable farms.
They channeled out the
Caloosahatchee River to con-
nect to the lake (Three Mile
Canal); then dug another
canal so that the wood need-
ed to fire the enormous
machine was readily accessi-
ble (Nine Mile Canal).
Then they started digging,
the first canal to the south
after carefully checking to see.
whether or not any rock lay
below the swampy surface.


The following account was
written by Conrad Menge in
1947.
After digging the two cross
canals, the dredge was dis-
mantled again and towed
down to Ritta River by a' little
stern wheel steamboat called
"The Rosalie."
We started digging- the
canal from Ritta River south
during the latter part of 1888.
After dredging about 12 or 13
miles, we ran into a rock ledge
and the canal was abandoned.
This canal became known as
Thirteen-Mile Canal.
This was the last canal dug
by the Menge brothers in this
region. The dredge was dis-
mantled and put on barge for
shipment back to Kissimmee.
During the trip across Lake
Okeechobee, a storm came up
suddenly and the dredge broke
loose from the tow boar. It
sank in Lake Okeechobee and
was never located again. This
ended the early dredging done


in the region.
My brother and I dug all the
canals in the vicinity of Lake
Okeechobee. We did not work
on any of the canal projects
that went to the east coast
from the Everglades region
and we were not connected
with the St. Cloud operations
on the Kissimmee River.
It was quite a problem to
move the dredge across the
lake to a new location. The
dredge wasn't very seaworthy
and couldn't be handled by the
tow boat at all in even a mod-
erate breeze. Towing was
always done at night because
there was very little wind on
the lake between sundown
and sunrise. The dredges were
towed to location by small
steamboats. We used three of
these during the course of our
work as tenders for towing
wood barges and for hauling
supplies as well as for towing

Coffee Mill Hammock was located along the Caloosahatchee
River about eight miles above Ft. Thompson. Its name goes
back over 100 years.

me that a person found an old

ground of the hammock east of
Fort Thompson and that this is
the way Coffee Mill Hammock
got its name. This place was
known as Coffee Mill Hammock
long before I came to Florida in

OHS takes part in AP testingOkehbeSolMnu


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School
(OHS) will begin to administer a
series of tests over the next two
weeks to students in the Advanced
Placement (AP) classes offered at
the school.
These national exams are com-
piled and sponsored by the Nation-
al College Board and offer students
the opportunity to receive college
credit for classes they take in high
school. OHS currently offers five AP
classes that students can partici-
pate in, with two pre-AP classes to
prepare the underclassmen for the
rigor of the class.
The first test will be held Mon-
day with the other four classes fol-
lowing in rapid succession. The
subjects being covered in these
classes range from American Histo-
ry to Economics, Calculus to Litera-
ture and Composition -with up to
six credit hours, the equivalent to
two normal semester-long classes
at the college level, being offered to
students that score very well on the
test.
AP classes are not to be con-
fused with the dual enrollment
classes offered through the school
in conjunction with Indian River
Community College (IRCC), of

Marjorie Lorraine
Borger
Marjorie Lorraine Borger, 94 of
Fort Pierce, died May 4, 2007 at her
home. Mrs. Borger was born in
Chicago, Ill., and had been a resi-
dent of Fort Pierce for seven years,
coming from Okeechobee. While
in Okeechobee, she was a mem-
ber of the First United Methodist
Church, where she was instrumen-
tal in starting a 50 year Golden
Anniversary Club.
She is preceded in death by her
husband, Kenneth Borger in 2000.
Survivors include two daugh-
ters: Judy Moulton of Fort Pierce,
and Lynn Barrickman of Lehigh
Acres, one son, Jack Borger of Fort
Lauderdale, seven grandchildren;
and six great- grandchildren.
Friends may call from I until 4
p.m. Sunday, May 6, at Yates Funer-
al Home in Fort Pierce. A prayer
service will be follow in the funeral
home chapel at 4 p.m. with Rev.
Todd Stube, Pastor of First United
Methodist Church of Fort Pierce,
officiating.
A graveside funeral service will
be held at noon, Monday, May 7, at

which there are countless num-
bers. While both essentially offer
students the opportunity to receive
college credit, the dual enrollment
affects a student's high school and
college grade point averages.
The grade received in an AP
class only affects the high school
GPA and will not appear on the col-
lege transcript unless the student
passes the AP examination.
"Some schools are more
swayed by the AP classes," stated
Mrs. Debbie Gillis, OHS vice princi-
pal. "But others simply transfer the
dual enrollment. Students need to
check with the school that they
plan to attend and decide which fits
them best. It's not the same for
everybody."
The dual-enrollment offered at
the high school is designed to fit
with the programs and degree
options offered at IRCC. Students
could take other classes that are
offered through IRCC at no cost to
themselves through dual enroll-
ment, pending approval of the
administration. .
In the long run, these classes are
'proven to be very beneficial.
"Studies have shown," said Mrs.
Gillis, "that even if students don't
make the score required to receive
college credit in the AP classes, they
have better time management and
study habits."

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.
LAKE: I want to know when South Florida Water Management
District is going to step up to the plate and admit their mistakes.
They let the water out last year thinking we would have another hur-
ricane and it didn't happen. Rainy season doesn't start until June.
What will happen if we don't get enough rain? It didn't have to be
this way. People who make their living depending on the water will
suffer for their mistake. Are they going to pay us for our losses? Also
about spraying, they send people out to spray shorelines and islands
killing everything. They say it is herbicide and it doesn't .hurt, then
why do they wear masks and protective clothing to spray?
YMS PROM: I'd like to find some information about the prom that
is supposed to take place Saturday. Yearling Middle School doesn't
know anything about it. Where is the prom supposed to be; what
time does it starts; what time does it ends; and is there going to be
any supervision for these eighth graders?
Editor's note: We contacted Yearling Middle School and were
told there is no school-sponsored prom. There will be, however, a
orivate party. The school had no other information about the party.

LAW: Did you know that there is no law for the federal govern-
ment to tax anyone on their wages earned?
RESTRICTIONS: I have a suggestion. I think it would be a good
idea to print the water restrictions and regulations on the front page
of everyday's paper and leave it there so people know. Some of
these violators are not aware of when they can water even though it
is plastered all over the media.
Editor's Note: We have done that and will continue to do so
when space is available.
WATER: On the front page of the paper it says water edicts are
baffling to the residents. It is happens to everyone when the South
Florida Water Management District can allow the farmers, citrus and
sod growers to get all the water they can, but we get fined for water-
ing our grass. I don't understand this. Is this America? Water is a
commodity just like everything else.
MILITARY SERVICE: To the person who suggested that we place
criminals in our military. I am a retired veteran and the thought of
putting a criminal in the proud uniforms worn by our professional
servicemen is abhorrent to me, as it would be to every serviceman.
Let me state a few facts: first and foremost, our military is composed
of volunteers, not draftees or felons, and we strive to be professional
in our chosen fields. When we take our oath to protect and defend
the people of the United States and its Constitution we are also
aware that we may have to pay the ultimate price for this decision.
Would you ask that jail felons be placed in police uniforms and
asked to protect you and the general public? Of course not. There-
fore please do not disrespect our proud servicemen by suggesting
that we allow convicted felons to wear our uniforms or be forced to
become associated with us. Proud to be an American veteran.
LANGUAGE: I wonder why employers in Okeechobee demand to
have Spanish speaking people. This is America. Let them learn to
speak English.
APPRECIATIVE: I was traveling east on S.R. 70 by the RaceTrac
and I had a blow out. They called over to a local tire store and a man
came over and changed my tire. He was a gentleman and I appreci-
ate the help very much. I am 74 years young.
DAY OF PRAYER: Today is May 3, the National Day of Prayer. I
was just curious if any of the pastors in town or any Christians in
town get together for prayer. It used to happen but it seems like after
the hurricanes of 2004 everything just kind of diminished and I
haven't read anything about it or if they've ever had one since. Have
they had a National Day of Prayer in Okeechobee since the hurri-
canes?
Editor's note: Local churches and citizens continue to take part
in the National Day of Prayer each year. There was a page I story
about this year's event in the Friday, May 4, issue of the Okee-
chobee News.
DROUGHT: On the issue of water, I haven't heard anyone on TV
or in the paper as to why the lake is dried up. Surely you remember
earlier this year Fort Myers and on the east coast people were
screaming because Lake Okeechobee was being emptied into their
waterways and polluting the ocean. Now the question is, who
dumped the water out of Lake Okeechobeeoand why do they make a
habit of doing it? Don't they know when the lake is dry, as well as
our canals and ditches?

The Fifth Major's Course renovated, ready


The players of the PGA Tour
are ready to play their champi-
onship. After undergoing a $60
million facelift, so is the TPC Sta-
dium course at Sawgrass.
This Pete Dye design features
one of the most popular holes in
all of golf, the treacherous par-3
17th hole. While it often is played
with just a nine-iron, this island
green is tough enough, especially
when the wind is up, to rattle the
most confident professional.
As the story goes, it was Mr.
Dye's wife Alice who provided the
idea of placing the green in a lake.
I guess it is true that behind every
great man, is a great woman!
In any event, the 17th hole is
one of the few that were not
messed with, which is a good
thing!
Even the date of the tourna-
ment was moved back two


months. In the past rain has been
a factor. This year that should not
be a problem. Due to the warmer
weather, overseeding was not
required.
Just in case it does rain, a new
drainage system was installed in
every fairway. It required enough
sand to fill 16 football fields.


In addition to the fairways hav-
ing their drainage improved, a
SubAir System for every green,
including the putting and chip-
ping greens in the practice area
was installed. SubAir is a system
of pipes and tunnels below the
greens that can pull moisture
down through the grass or push
oxygen up through the root zone,
depending on which is needed.
The greens were re-grassed
with a new bermudagrass called
Miniverdi and a new irrigation sys-
tem was installed.
Other changes include deep-
ening of greenside bunkers,
rebuilding of the 12th green and
three new pot bunkers on the
right side of the 7th fairway.
Plus (and you might have
guessed this one) the course was
lengthened a total of 122 yards to
a total length of 7,215 yards. Holes


1, 8, 11, 14, 16 and 18 each got a
little longer.
To add to the enjoyment of
spectators, new bridges were
installed; spectator mounds were
reshaped and leveled at the top so
more skyboxes could be installed.
There will be extensive cover-
age on the Golf Channel and NBC
beginning Thursday. However,
since the event is in your home
state, you might want to consider
driving up to witness it in person.
There are still limited tickets avail-
able. For grounds tickets and gen-
eral information call (904) 285-
7888.
Thanks to the Golf Course
Superintendents Association of
America (GCSAA) for some of the
facts and figures on the renova-
tion at TPC Sawgrass.

Florida Agriculture to be

featured May 16 on RFD-TV


Gainesville Kerry Herndon,
owner of Kerry's Bromeliad Nurs-
ery, and Louis E. 'Red' Larson,
founder of the Larson family's
dairies, will be featured on "The
Florida Report" Wednesday, May
16,at 6:30 p.m. (EDT) on RFD-TV,
the cable and satellite network
devoted to rural issues and
lifestyles. Kerry's Bromeliad Nurs-
ery is one of the largest potted
orchid complexes in the world.
Larson is one of the most respect-
ed dairy leaders in Florida. View-
ers will also learn how Florida 4-H
recruits adult volunteers to share
their diverse life experiences with
rural and urban youths.
The program will repeat on
Thursday, May 17 at 2:30 a.m. and
10:30 a.m. and on Saturday, May
19, at 3:30 p.m. "The Florida
Report" is part of the series, "Farm
Bureau Today," and is produced
for Florida Farm Bureau by the
Marketing Division of the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. "This pro-
gram gives viewers insight into
two of Florida's most impressive
agricultural operations, both run
by Farm Bureau members," said
John Hoblick, president of the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
Herndon, who says he fell in
love with bromeliads as a teenag-
er, began growing orchids in 1992
and is now one of the world's
largest producers of the flowers.
His nurseries produce more than
five million of them each year. Lar-
son bought his first dairy cow as a
teenager, bottling and selling milk
to neighbors for 10 cents a quart.
More than 65 years later, Larson
owns three dairy farms in Okee-
chobee County with more than
6,000 milking cows producing
more than 100 million pounds of
milk annually.
This episode is one of a series


profiling leading Florida agricul-
tural producers, many of whom
have been recognized by Com-
missioner of Agriculture Charles
H. Bronson for their environmen-
tal leadership. Both Kerry's
Bromeliad Nursery and Larson
Dairy, Inc. were so recognized in
2005. 'Wo more "Florida Reports"
will premier on July 18 and Nov.
21,2007.
"Farm Bureau members have
been asking us to provide RFD-TV-
with programming about Florida
agriculture," said Hoblick "Our
partnership with the Department
of Agriculture has allowed us to
accomplish that." For the past five
years, Florida Farm Bureau and
the state Agriculture Department
have jointly sponsored an out-
reach campaign that concentrates
on increasing public awareness of
Florida agriculture, the state's sec-
ond-largest industry. The cam-
paign, which focuses on the mes-
sage, "Safe, Affordable and
Abundant: Food for Thought from
Florida's Farmers," reaches Flori-
da's urban residents through
cable television and commercial
and public service announce-
ments on radio.
RFD-TV is seen on DIRECTTV,
DISH Network, Mediacom and
NCTC cable systems in all 50
states. The network's Web site
containing program information
is located at http//www.rfdtv.corr/.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,0i110O member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, non-profit agricul-
tural organization. More informa-
tion about Florida Farm Bureau is
available on the organization's
Web site, http://FloridaFarmBu-
rc'al.org

The Okeechobee News, Sunday, May 6, 2007 '

Safe places can become 'black holes' for our favorite stuff


Did you ever put something in a
safe place never to find it again? I
have many times. It is almost a
joke in our home when I say those
black hole fateful words, "I need to
put this in a safe place. There are
car titles that have been lost in the
vastness of my safe places. Just
today as I am flying across the
country I have lost two items all
because I didn't want to misplace
them on the flight.
We could have been the three
stooges searching for the cord to
my assistant's headphones. You
know the story. I put them some
place safe and then had to spend
thirty minutes searching through
every pocket and compartment in
my purse and my computer bag.
After I finally found them; I lost the
cord to my headphones. Luckily
that cord had not been placed in a
safe place; it was hiding on the
floor under my foot.
I order to get myself calmed
down from the chaotic start to our
plane ride I put on some music that
settles my nerves and decided to
write about our little comedy rou-
tine. Why do we put ourselves
though this. At one point I was so
happy that my sweet darling was
not with us on our trip. When he
does travel with us; he likes to sit a
few rows away from us because I
fidget too much. He travels light.
This is not a term that sidetracked


The '
Flylady "E n

Cilley ,' -

people are familiar with. Light for
us is a flash light to look into that
bottomless pit of a handbag to help
us find what we are searching for.
The other day we found a
portable scale to help us weigh our
luggage so we don't have to
rearrange our stuff when we get to
the airport. There is nothing worse
than being two pounds over
weight. There must be a lot of side-
tracked people in this world. We
have gotten better about what we
pack. This trip my assistant actual-
ly wore everything she brought
with her.
I have been trying to figure out
what the difference is between a
man and a woman traveling.
Robert has his wallet, his glasses, a
book and just a car key in his pock-
et. His bags can be packed in
about five minutes. He carries the
bare necessities unlike Michele
and I. We are prepared for any-
thing. We have medications for
stomach aches, heat pads for sore


Batter up
Enrico Campos, a student at Everglades Elementary
School, takes a stance like a batter in baseball as he tries
to smash a piniata at the school's Cinco de May celebra-
tion. On Friday, May 4, the school celebrated Cinco de
Mayo which commemorates the Mexican victory over the
French on May 5, 1862. Students also ate Mexican food
and danced the Mexican hat dance.


muscles and pills for headaches.
We have our computers so we can
still work and we have our tunes
so we can sing. This stuff has
come in handy, but the price we
pay for having too much stuff is in
time and frustration. Yes we know
it is here someplace.
The same thing happens in our
homes when we have too much
stuff. We can't find what we need
when we need it. We don't have
homes for these items. As my
Granny has always said, "Every-
thing has a place and everything in
its place". Can you imagine this??
For sidetracked people our clut-


ter is clogging up the valuable stor-
age space in our homes and the
stuff we need is homeless. This is
why we are always searching and
wasting time hunting for what we
want. With less clutter we release
the frustration that comes with los-
ing items. The funny part is that the
items that are usually right in front
of our faces in plain view and our
frustration level blinds us.
My next trip I am determined to
travel with less and find more
peace in my journey. I can do this.
Are you ready to join me by releas-
ing your clutter?
For more help getting rid of

Authentic cuisine
To add a touch of authenticity to the Cinco de Mayo cele-
bration at Everglades Elementary School, students were
served authentic Mexican food prepared by some of their
mothers. Among other foods, they had salsa and chips
and tamales. Cinco de Mayo celebrates the Mexican vic-
tory at the Battle of Puebla, May 5, 1862. The school cel-
ebrated the holiday on Friday, May 4.


It's pinata time
Cinco de Mayo was recently celebrated at Everglades Ele-
mentary School. Here, Blake Dickson tries to break the
pifiata to release the goodies inside. May 5, or Cinco de
Mayo, is a Mexican holiday commemorating the Battle of
Peubla on May 5,1862.

Older cats have different dietary needs


COLLEGE STATION, Texas If
Whiskers seems to be losing that
spring in her cat-like step, don't
panic it's all part of the natural
aging process.
Dr. John August, a veterinari-
an specializing in feline medi-
cine at the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University, says
there are several things you can
do to help your cat flourish in his
or her senior years.
"An indoor cat usually lives 17
to 18 years and we usually start
to see signs of aging diseases
around the age of 10," August
says. "The most common and
under diagnosed disease for eld-
erly cats is degenerative joint dis-
ease or arthritis. A lot of people
think that their cats are slowing
down because they're getting
older, but they may have a
painful joint disease."
Tooth and gum disease,
chronic kidney disease, various
forms of cancer, hypertension,
hormonal disorders, diabetes
and -overactive thyroid are also
diseases prone to older cats. "It's
also important for elderly cats to
have their blood pressure
checked regularly," advises
August.
Increased veterinary visits are
usually necessary for elderly cats.
"We are finding that annual
examinations are not enough for
elderly cats," he notes. "A cat
that has no other medical prob-
lems should have two routine
wellness exams a year and cats
that show signs of problems
should have more."
Your senior cat also needs a
new diet, he adds. "Cats should
be fed diets that are suitable for
their life stage," says August.
"Senior diets are more easily
digestible and chewable. They
have slightly lower amounts of
protein, phosphorus and salt."
He says there are several
things around the house that you
can do to help your cat in his or
her golden years. "Food and
water bowls should be placed in
easily accessible places and you
should provide a litter box with
shallow sides," August advises.
"For truly elderly cats that have
lost a lot of muscle and are thin,
you can buy a pet suitable heat-
ing pad."
Some elderly cats, due to
arthritis or other medical prob-
lems, may not be able to groom
themselves properly, says
August. "For any cat, a good reg-
ular brushing makes the cat feel
good and gets rid of any loose
hair that the cat could take in,
resulting in stomach irritation."
Minimizing stress around the
house is also something that will
help your senior cat.
"If cats like to sleep up on
beds or windowsills, you might
think about providing an easy
way to get to those areas," he
adds.
If you notice that Fluffy is los-
ing that spring in her step, it
might be time for a visit to the
veterinarian. Regular exercise is


very beneficial to your senior
animal, but most cat owners
know this may be a difficult task.
Instead August advises, "Senior
cat owners should promote


interactivity with their cat. Its
golden years can be a happy
time for both you and your cat."

lege of Veterinary Medicine &
