SFWMD web site
offers water info
Due to the extreme water
shortage situation in South Flori-
da, 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 Man-
agement District (SFWMD)
recently implemented an interac-
tive option on their web site at
www.sfwmd.gov that allows resi-
dents 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 Okee-
chobee area incorrectly indicated
that groundwater wells in the
area were also under mandatory
restrictions..
For information, contact the
SFWMD Okeechobee Service
Center at (863) 462-5260 or (800)
250-4200.

centered around subdivisions.
Unless a subdivision home-
owners' association is in place
from day one, there is no
enforcement to control drainage
said county attorney John Cas-
sels. He said by law the home-
owners' association should be
formed by the time the develop-
er sells 90 percent of the lots.
He added that the association
is supposed to inspect the prop-
erty upon turnover from the
developer and that the South


Florida Water Management Dis-
trict has a review process for
drainage that takes place before
turnover.
County planning official Bill
Royce noted that the school
board won't send a school bus
down a private road. Once a bus
starts down a road, that service
must be continued even if the
road deteriorates.
Commissioner Elvie Posey
suggested requiring the develop-
er to build a bus stop outside the


subdivision.
Standards on subdivision
streets should be raised so that
buses could turn around stated
Commissioner Clif Betts.
Commissioners Posey and
Ray Domer were in favor of
looping streets in subdivisions
rather than having streets end in
cul de sacs.
However, Mr. Cassels said
some subdivision might be too
small for a loop.
It was also brought up that


developers object to through-
streets in their subdivision.
Commissioner Marvin Wher-
rell suggested requiring more
than one entrance to a subdivi-
sion.
Mr. Royce said larger subdivi-
sions might require more than
two entrances. He said a certain
number of lots could trigger a
requirement to build a second
entrance, while another larger
number of lots could require a
third entrance.


$11 Million Project: Unwanted muck will fill stadium


South Florida Water Management District has released $11 million in emergency funds to aid in restoration of Lake
Okeechobee. Dry sediment will be removed to improve fish spawning habitat and reduce phosphorus pollution. This
site is at Fisheating Bay near Lakeport in Glades County.


Muck removal project under way


By Nena Bolan
Special to the
Okeechobee News
LAKEPORT One of the
worst droughts in Florida histo-
ry has lowered Lake Okee-
chobee water levels to a near
record low of 9.22 feet on Fri-
day, May 25.
While these dire conditions
have changed life for many res-
idents, it is an opportunity for
removing phosphorous-laden
sediment from the dried lake
bed. The exposed muck will be
easier to scrape away.
This month South Florida
Water Management District


(SFWMD) governing board
released $11 million in emer-
gency funds to speed up Lake
Okeechobee restoration. On
Thursday, May 24, front-end
loaders and dump trucks
began excavating the exposed
lake bottom at Fisheating Bay
and Harney Pond Canal Recre-
ation Area. They are two of the
six proposed removal sites on
the western shore.
The removal work on
Fisheating Bay is handled by
the SFWMD and involves 800
acres of exposed lake bed,
costing a little more the $1 mil-
lion. Within three months the
district expects to scrape and


haul away more than 27,000
truckloads.
The muck is mostly decayed
vegetation, and it has built up
over many years. It has ruined
fish spawning sites, suffocated
beneficial aquatic plants,
degraded water clarity and has
a high phosphorus content.
About 280 tons of phospho-
rus in the Fisheating Bay sedi-
ment will be hauled away.
The removal of 12 to 18
inches of dried muck will
restore the sandy bottom
which is a medium for the
native plants along the shore-
line, and will foster spawning
beds for largemouth bass and


panfish. Additionally, it will pro-
vide habitat for apple snails, on
which the endangered snail
kite survives.
Last March, the SFWMD
gave Glades County the oppor-
tunity to participate in the
restoration. It allotted nearly $1
million to pay for the heavy
duty clean-up in order for
Glades County to organize and
implement the excavation of
the Harney Pond Canal Recre-
ation Area.
On May 24 Wendell Taylor,
Glades County manager, was
observing the removal progress
See Project Page 2


Mr. Cassels suggested the
county accept roads for mainte-
nance at the completion of the
project instead of a year later,
but with a year or 18 months of
warranty. He believes that
would eliminate some problems
and answer the question of who
would do the maintenance dur-
ing the first year.
Currently, if developers want
to sell lots before a subdivision is

Glades County is participating in the removal of muck from the dry lake bed by the Harney Pond Canal Recreation
Area near Lakeport. By midday on Thursday, May 24, nearly 150 dump truck loads of sediment had been hauled away.

completed they must put up a
110 percent bond. It was sug-
gested that this amount be
raised to 125 percent.
Commissioners also dis-
cussed not requiring a bond
until the subdivision is 75 per-
cent complete.
Mr. Cassels pointed out that
when a subdivision is developed
in phases, the drainage on each
phase must stand alone, which
makes engineering and permit-
ting more complicated.
Mr. Royce went on to discus
the planned unit development
(PUD) which gives a developer
greater flexibility.
Mr. Cassels suggested that it
might be preferable to have larg-
er developments rather than
smaller ones and require parks


-........ .00qp


and open spaces.
Mr. Royce questioned the use
of rezoned property for agricul-
tural purposes.
Mr. Cassels said the county
should take aggressive action on
these properties and require
changing the zoning back to
agriculture if it will be a long
time before development starts.
The board also discussed
requirements for subdivisions to
put in sidewalks based on lot
size.
The consensus was that lots
up to a maximum of 2 acres
should have curb and gutter,
sidewalks and street lights on
one side of the street.
Mr. Betts suggested that all
internal intersections in a subdi-
vision be lighted.
Since it was a workshop, no
official action could be taken.
Mr. Cassels told the board
that at the next scheduled work-


- - S
C --


shop on June 28, he would pres-
ent a proposed ordinance con-
taining suggested changes from
the previous workshops.
In an unrelated matter, Mr.
Cassels announced to the board
that Tir Na N'Og, a ranch near
Indian Hammock that operates
a residuals treatment facility, has
applied to the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP) for the renewal of
their permit to operate the facili-
ty.
The ranch is also permitted
for land application of the treat-
ed residuals that are used as fer-
tilizer for the ranch's pastures.
For a number of years, Tir Na
N'Og and the residents of Indian
Hammock have been at odds
over operation of the facility.
There have been numerous
complaints to the county com-
missioners, resulting in at least
two ordinances to attempt to


regulate the facility.
"We need to protect these
people from something they
don't want," was the opinion of
Commissioner Noel Chandler.
Although commissioners
expressed concern over the situ-
ation, the consensus was that
they could not stop the permit-
ting process. However, as means
of expressing their opinion to
DEP, they directed Mr. Cassels to
send DEP a copy of the county
ordinance dealing with setbacks
from property lines in applica-
tion of treated residuals.
In another legal matter, the
board authorized Mr. Cassels to
offer A & G Cattle Company
$33,000 to settle a dispute about
the right of way of Lofton Road,
which borders A & G property.

The monumental task was
impressive to watch as heavy
equipment and dump trucks
rumbled past in coordinated pro-

cession. According to Mr. Taylor,
nearly 150 truck-loads of muck
had been carried away by mid-
day.

when the rains will come.
Scraping and hauling is easier
when the muck is dry, but under-
water removal is possible until
the water level reaches 10.5 feet,
according to SFWMD.
Thursday, officials from
SFWMD and the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion (FDEP) were at the ground-


don--.%


breaking of the Fisheating Bay
restoration site. Tim Rach, FDEP
assistant director, gave informa-
tive comments to visitors and the
media.
"This is the silver lining in one
of the worst droughts in Florida
history. What we move out of
here will fill Dolphin Stadium,"
said Mr. Rach.

AT5ThoughtTo
* remember

They say the word "lonely"
was created and used for the first
time by William Shakespeare.
He has been dead for over 375
years, and what they used to
describe
lonely "
before his
time, we
don't know.
We are sure
people were
"lonely" 400
-,'_years ago, even
By Paul though they
Buxton didn't have a
word for it
You would be surprised how
many lonely people there are in
the world today. We know a per-
son who makes it a regular habit of
calling up her friends on the tele-
phone and saying, "I just called
because I felt you might be lonely."
The remarkable thing is that
the phone calls are a sure cure
for her friend's loneliness as well
as her own.
It might be a good idea if
more people make a practice of
this idea.
Thought to Remember:
Friendliness is contagious.

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

FCAT: Did anyone notice the FCAT scores in this county? Are par-
ents concerned at all? Maybe if kids were graded on huntin' hogs,
ridin' ATVs, hatin' gays and minorities, dippin' tobacco and underage
drinking' then we'd be seeing' all As. Face it cowboy hats, pointed
boots and loud pick up trucks don't ready you for a global economy.
The way English is spoken around this town by adults it doesn't sur-
prise me that so many kids are as illiterate as their parents.

TURN SIGNALS: I see we are having another Click It or Ticket drive.
What we need a lot more is a Signal or Ticket drive. If a person doesn't
care about what might happen to them or their passengers, don't use a
seat belt. but when you fail to give a turn signal you are endangering
my life and I don't appreciate it. You are breaking the law and should
be arrested on the spot.

CHANGE: You people living in the Viking area should all get togeth-
er and do some research on the Acreage in West Palm Beach back in
the '70s. There were maybe $300 taxes on 8-10 acres. You had your
own well. There were no city folk and no yuppies, no supported ethnic
groups and you could settle disputes with your dogs and a gun. That
has pretty much changed now. In the same area you can pay upwards
of $10,000 in taxes and $70 to $80 for water. The only thing you can do
now is get an extra gun. So check it out. You might want to change
your ways out there.

RIGHTS: I think Click It or Ticket is a violation of personal rights in
our own vehicles.

THEFT: On Wednesday, May 23, a purse, wallet, check book cover
and an 1-80 was stolen out of my car in my driveway. I made a police
report and they took finger prints. If the person returns it, I will not
press charges.

DEVELOPMENT: I was reading where they are going to have anoth-
er new development. We are going to get as bad as West Palm and Fort
Pierce. How are they going to do this with no water? We don't need all
the extra traffic. Okeechobee is a great town and we don't need more
and more traffic.

ROADS: I have a solution to the roads in the Viking property. The
sheriff has posted a sign that states that while driving any vehicles you
are subject to any traffic laws or ordinances in the State of Florida. So if
the sheriff wants to enforce state and county laws on these roads, then
the county is responsible for them. Get the graders out there'and get
them cleaned up. The sheriff just made the roads happy.

Running Club is coming to Okeechobee


By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee will soon have a
running club of its own for both
youngsters and adults.
Brian Kendall, Nathan Owen
and Lance Sluder are former
University of Southern Indiana
(U.S.I.) track team members
who have brought knowledge
and experience to the Okee-
chobee High School cross-coun-
try program, as well as to the
Yearling Middle School track and
field team.
Mr. Kendall is a teacher at
Yearling Middle School. As a
member of the U.S.I. cross-
country and track teams, he
developed a love for the
decathlon. Mr. Kendall is cur-
rently the head coach of the
Lady Brahman girls' track team.
Mr. Owen currently teaches
at O.H.S. His favorite events at


U.S.I. were the 5K and cross-
country. He is the head coach
for the Brahman cross-country
team and the girls' basketball
team.
Mr. Sluder is a teacher at Year-
ling Middle School. His favorite
events at U.S.I. were the 5;K and
cross-country. He assists with
both track and cross-country at
O.H.S. He is also the head coach
for Yearling Track and Field.
Their hard work and love for
the sport has rubbed off on their
teams. The Brahman boys' team
is now the defending Treasure
Lake Conference champions,
the Tommy Lacoya champions
and the Running with the Bulls
champions. The team finished
20th at the 2006 state finals.
Team member Bryan Suarez ran
his way to the district champi-
onship and finished fifth at state.
He also currently holds the
Okeechobee High School home


course record. The boys' team
had four members who were
selected to Treasure Lake All-
Conference teams: Bryan
Suarez-first team; James Gainer-
second team; Eddy Guerrero-
second team and Uriel Garcia-
honorable mention.
Not to be outdone by the
boys' team, the Lady Brahman
cross-country team is the
defending Running with the
Bulls champions and the junior
varsity Running with the Bulls
champions. The girls' team had
a regional qualifier in Sandra
Torres, who also received All-
Conference honorable mention.
With such outstanding
results in such a short period of
time, the coaches realized that
there was enough interest in
running to develop a town team.
They decided to start the Chobee
Running Club to create a posi-
tive atmosphere for the commu-


nity that would promote life-
long physical activity for all age
groups. They felt that by provid-
ing a club for runners more
locals would participate
because of group motivation
and safety in numbers.
Their long-term goals are to
have year-round runs, pulling in
competitors from around the
state for such events as a Christ-
mas, Thanksgiving, Memorial
Day and Labor Day run.
The Chobee Running Club
has already scheduled numer-
ous events and evening runs.
Their complete schedule can be
found at www.chobeerunning-
club.com/calendar.
There willbe an organiza-
tional meeting on Tuesday, May
29 at Yearling Middle School
beginning at 5 p.m.
Runners of all ages are invited
to join.


Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski

home record.


Sandra Torres, a member of
the Lady Brahman cross-
country team, was a regional
qualifier and was given hon-
orable mention in the Trea-
sure Lake All-Conference
team.

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:





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 PITL
Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range
although some lenders will go higher under under certain circumstances.
SYour total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

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-

* 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.

NES ALPHA celebrates National PE., Sport Week


Barbara Godejohn, Healthy
Communities Coordinator from
the Okeechobee County Health
Department (OCHD), gave a
presentation to the fifth graders,
their teachers and classroom
aides at the New Endeavor cam-
pus.
The presentation focused on
the importance of making
healthy food choices. This includ-
ed picking healthy snacks, and
getting the recommended daily
servings of fruits and vegetables.
She also stressed the importance
of increasing physical activity.
"With obesity and chronic ill-
nesses on the rise in our nation, it
is imperative that we teach our
young children to be physically
active at least 60 minutes a day
for five days a week or more and
to make healthier choices," states
Mrs. Godejohn.
Each student and staff mem-
ber received a pedometer and a
jump rope to assist in easy to do
daily activities such as jumping
rope and walking. All were chal-
lenged to make 10,999 steps a
day as has been suggested by

10 RELIGION


Reflections from the Pulpit


By Reverend Pete Gawda
In 1885, work began on a
stone wall around the campus of
Wake Forest College in Wake
Forest, N.C. to contain the pro-
fessor's livestock. By the mid
1900's, what is now Wake Forest
University had moved to Win-
ston-Salem, N.C. and Southeast-
ern Baptist Theological Semi-
nary occupied the campus in
Wake Forest. Over the years, the
stone wall had fallen into decay.
Between 1990 and 1994, a
Southeastern graduate rebuilt
the wall. A plaque on that wall
memorializes him as a modern
day Nehemiah.
The Nehemiah mentioned in
the Old Testament is known as a
wall builder because he rebuilt
the wall of Jerusalem. In those
days, a city wall was important
as a status symbol as well as
serving a very practical defen-
sive purpose.
As we look at the Book of
Nehemiah, we can learn several
spiritual truths.
Jerusalem has fallen to the
Babylonians and the city wall
was destroyed. Then Persians
captured the Babylonians. The
Persian kings allowed the Jews
to go back to their homeland.
This is where Nehemiah
comes on the scene. He was a
leader with a vision who was


concerned about the plight of
his people. The book shows
what can happen with a dedicat-
ed leader and people who have
a mind to work. The book tells
of the work of Nehemiah's
hands and his heart in rebuilding
the wall of Jerusalem.
First Nehemiah prayed.
Nehemiah was described as a
businessman whose whole life
was steeped in prayer. The
prayer in Nehemiah 2:4 was
addressed to the God in heaven.
God has more interest in His
people and can do more to help
them than anyone else can.
There is an old song that says,
"Where could I go but to the
Lord?" If His help can be
secured, it doesn't matter who
else fails.
Following the example of
Nehemiah, we should pray
urgently and fervently. Nehemi-
ah prayed in every circumstance
of life. First he prayed when he
heard of the condition of the
wall of Jerusalem. He prayed
when he faced the king and later
he prayed in the face of opposi-
tion. He prayed when false accu-
sations were made and he
prayed when the work was com-
pleted.
Nehemiah also had a pur-
pose. (2:11) He came to
Jerusalem to rebuild the wall.
He inspected the wall by night to


survey the scene to see what
was involved. He wanted to
acquire first hand knowledge
that could be acquired no other
way. In his inspection of the
wall, he looked forward, he
looked within and he looked up,
realizing he was doing God's
work.
However, Nehemiah's work
would require personal sacrifice
and moral courage.
Nehemiah also exhibited per-
sistence in the construction of
the wall. The work went on in
spite of hardship and resistance
because the people had a mind
to work. (4:6)
As sometimes happens, hon-
est work brings opposition, but
Nehemiah was still persistent.
As evidence of their persistence,
the people were dressed for
action. (4:23) In Nehemiah's
persistence, he observed, prod-
ded, encouraged, led and joined
in the work.
Nehemiah also exhibited per-
severance (6:3) He would not
cease to work to answer his
detractors. His enemies were
trying to trick him. However, he
realized that his work was too
important to leave. His work
was a priority and he had his pri-
orities straight. He realized that
once the job was started, it had
to be completed. You can't stop
with half a wall.

Before Nehemiah came
along, the people were disheart-
ened and disorganized and were
no threat to their enemies. How-
ever, thanks to Nehemiah's per-
severance, they became a threat.
All these traits, prayer, pur-
pose, persistence, and persever-
ance, paid off in the completion
of the project. (6:15) The project
was completed with God's inter-
vention and Nehemiah's leader-
ship. It has been said that you
should pray as if everything
depends on God and work as if
everything depends on you.
Nehemiah comes across as
the ideal worker for God. They
key words in the book are prayer
and work. He prayed, worked,
and encouraged others to do so.
He was ready for action. He
prayed and then he acted. There
is a time for prayer and time for
action. God give us wisdom to
know the difference.
We can learn from Nehemiah
to be persistent and stay with the
job God calls us to do until it is
done.
