SFWMDwebsite
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
wwwsfwmdgov that allows res-
idents 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. 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 Service
Center at (863) 462-5260 or (800)
250-4200.
County-wide
burn ban issued
Due to drought conditions
and heavy frost damage to vege-

has been issued.
The ban will include, but not
be limited to: campfires, bon-
fires, bum barrels and the bum-
ing of yard trash and fireworks.

Veterans keep


memories alive


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Decoration Day, as the holi-
day was called, was first cele-
brated May 30, 1868, by a
proclamation of General A.
Logan, of the Grand Army of
the Republic, an organization
of former sailors and soldiers.
Today, veterans' organiza-
tions, like the Veterans of For-
eign Wars (VFW) and the
American Legion carry on the
tradition of honoring the men
and women in their communi-
ties who gave their lives forp
their country. How did it come
to be?
The Spanish American War
was the rallying point for Amer-
ica's treatment of her veterans.
To America, not only was the
treatment of the Cuban people
appalling, it meant the loss of
$100 million in annual trade
with the island nation. Then
when the American battleship


Maine blew up in Havana Har-
bor under mysterious circum-
stances with 260 aboard, Amer-
ican went to war in May 1898.
"Remember the Maine!" was
the rallying cry.
No adequate food, poor
equipment, poor medical care
not withstanding, it took Amer-
ican soldiers only six months to
defeat the Spanish. A peace
treaty was signed in December
of the same year. Significantly,

of the 2,430 American casualties
in the Spanish American War,
only 385 were combat deaths.
And when the soldiers came
home, they were given only a
month's pay and were dropped
off and told to find their own
way home.
The two major veterans'
organizations formed by Civil
War veterans also rebuffed the
nation's newest veterans. Both
the North's Grand Army of the
Republic (GAR) and the South's
United Confederate Veterans
(UCV) refused them a place in
their ranks. These men survived
the war only to be lost at home.
Two organizations, one in the
eastern and one in the western
United States, formed to assist
veterans and eventually formed
one unified group.
This one would not die out
with the founding generation,
but would be available to veter-
ans as long as the United States
was forced to fight wars. Official
approval of the selected name
was later given at the 1914 Con-
vention in Pittsburgh. This
approval, coupled with the
adoption of the constitution,
made that convention the first
annual convention of the Veter-
ans of Foreign Wars of the Unit-
ed States.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars
of the United States, including
Auxiliaries, has now 2.4 million
members in approximately
9,000 Posts worldwide. March

tionary Forces (A.E.F.) in France
in World War I is credited with
planning the Legion. A.E.F.
Headquarters asked these offi-
cers to suggest ideas on how to
improve troop morale. One offi-
cer, Lieutenant Colonel
Theodore Roosevelt, Jr., pro-
posed an organization of veter-
ans. In February 1919, this group
formed a temporary committee
and selected several hundred
officers who had the confidence
and respect of the whole army.
When the first organization
meeting took place in Paris on
April 7, 1919, about 1,000 offi-
cers and enlisted men attended.
The meeting, known as the Paris
Caucus, adopted a temporary
constitution and the name The
American Legion. It also elected
an executive committee to com-
plete the organization's work. It
considered each soldier of the
A.E.F. a member of the Legion.
Today the organization has some
three million members.
Those men and women who
have given the highest sacrifice
for our America and for us; their
lives deserve at least our time for
remembrance.
"Now, more than in recent
years, the enduring relevance of
Memorial Day should be clearly
evident. With two wars under
way, the public has no excuse
not to remember," VFW Com-
mander-in-Chief Gary Kurpiusin
an address delivered May 18.
"This much is owed to the
more than 3,600 Americans who
have died thus far in Afghanistan
and Iraq."

Eckerd graduates


On Wednesday, May 23,
Andy Brewer, principal of the
Okeechobee Freshman Cam-
pus, addressed the graduating
seventh and eighth, grade stu-
dents at the Eckerd Intensive
Halfway House.
During his speech, Mr. Brew-
er stressed the importance of
continuing on with their educa-
tion. He shared statistics about
the income that could be
expected with different levels of
education in the future and the
correlation between education
and financial success. He also
explained different educational
options available to the gradu-
ates such as technical school
and associates degrees includ-
ing the technology-related skills
in the future job market.
Following Mr. Brewer's
address, the students received
their certificates of achieve-
ment.

FAU offers Geomatics


Engineering Program


PORT ST. LUCIE -- Florida
Atlantic University's College of
Engineering and Computer Sci-
ence announces a new bache-
lor's degree program in geo-
matics engineering to help
alleviate the shortage of trained
land-surveyor professionals.
This new, unique program,
scheduled to begin in the Fall
2007 semester, was created in
response to the 2005 change in
Florida Statutes requiring that
individuals seeking state licen-
sure as professional land sur-
veyors be trained at the bac-
calaureate level. Faculty and
staff headquartered at the FAU
Treasure Coast campus in Port
St. Lucie will have the ability to
deliver the program throughout
South Florida.
"The Treasure Coast com-
munity has shown great enthu-
siasm and interest in this impor-
tant program," said Treasure
Coast Campus Vice President
Gerri McPherson. "Many local
engineering firms expressed the
critical need for this degree, and
FAU was ready to respond."
Geomatics is a new term
incorporating "surveying,"
"land mapping" and other
aspects of spatial data (informa-
tion that has a location) man-
agement. Geomatics engineers
are involved in a wide variety of
information gathering activities
and applications. They design,
develop and operate systems
for collecting and analyzing spa-
tial information about the land,
oceans, natural resources and
manmade features.
Many potential students are
working professionals with
two-year degrees seeking to
upgrade their professional skills
and are unable to attend classes
during normal working hours.
To meet this need, the College
of Engineering and Computer
Science will offer upper-level
courses in a blended system of
delivery that best fits the
requirements of each course
and the needs of students.

Obituaries

Lynne Sue Mitchell
Smith
Lynne Sue Mitchell Smith, 53,
formerly of Okeechobee, was born
Nov. 11, 1953 in Ft. Lauderdale.
She was married to Lawrence
E. Smith of Coral Springs for 28
years.
Lynne leaves a daughter, Lisa
Watson and her husband, John
Watson. Lisa will graduate from
Duke University as a nurse practi-
tioner this December. Lynne also
leaves a son, Lawrence J. Smith,
who graduated from Youngstown
State University on May 19, with a
dual major in.computers and crimi-
nal justice. Her children are the
crowning legacy that she leaves
behind. She is also survived by her
mother, Jacqueline Mitchell, and
her brother, Jeffrey Mitchell, both of
Okeechobee.
Lynne had been bravely fighting
breast cancer for 10 years until she
finally succumbed to the disease
on Tuesday, May 15, at the age of
53.
She was a wonderful loving
wife and mother who was an inspi-
ration to us all.
Services were held Wednesday,
May 23, at the Rocky Sink Baptist
Church in Live Oak.

"Baseline Engineering and
Land Surveying is overjoyed
that FAU responded to the des-
perate need we have in South
Florida for new professional
surveyors and mappers," said
Baseline Engineering and Land
Surveying President and CEO
Roxanna Trinka. "The impact
the geomatics engineering pro-
gram will have will be pro-
found. Until now, there was
only one university in Florida
providing this curriculum. So
many talented surveyors in the
area have wanted to get their
degree but couldn't leave their
jobs or families for the 2 to 4
years it would take to achieve it.
We are blessed to have FAU and
all its resources to transform
this industry."
The undergraduate program
in geomatics engineering at FAU
will lead to a 120-credit, four-
year Bachelor of Science degree
in geomatics engineering
(BSGE). This program will pro-
vide students with the profes-
sional skills required for today's
geospatial specialist.

At the May 16th Advisory Board meeting of the OHS Finance
Academy, Brandon Tucker was recognized for his volunteer
service to the committee (left to right) Daryl Roehm, director
Finance Academy, Brandon Tucker, and Sharon Mind, Acad-

OHS Finance Academy


recognizes volunteer


The OHS Finance Academy rec-
ognized Brandon Tucker at their
May 16th Advisory Board meeting
for his service to the Finance Acad-
emy. Mr. Tucker volunteered on
short notice to conduct a motiva-
tional seminar on April 4th at the
high school. Proceeds from the
seminar helped cover costs associ-
ated with the group's trip to Atlanta
in mid April.
"Mr. Tucker graciously agreed to
conduct the seminar on a
moments' notice" Daryl Roehm,
Academy director, said. "He did a
phenomenal job and received very
good reviews from seminar atten-
dees".
The Finance Academy exposes


students to the financial industry.
High school students enroll in spe-
cific classes to be involved in the
Academy. Every other year the
group takes a four-day trip to
Atlanta, Ga. "The Advisory Board
works very hard year round to help
raise funds for the trip" Roehm
said. "Students only had to con-
tribute $50 to go this past year,
which demonstrates just how hard
the board works". Current mem-
bers of the board are: Sharon Ming-
chair, Jon Geitner, Donna Helton,
Christa Luna, Tabitha Trent, Jean-
nette Miller, Maureen Budjinski,
Michael Fitch, Gary Moorman, Mar-
sha McGowan, and Bill Casian.

Guest Commentary


Eligible Floridians have right to vote


By Dianne Wheatley-Giliotti
The right to vote is the founda-
tion of our democracy and the
hallmark of our power. The histo-
ry of the oppressed has shown
that one of the most important
rights sought is suffrage. Without
real access to the ballot, every-
thing else is meaningless.
We have gone from poll taxes
and literacy tests to the latest
craze of voter disenfranchisement
- "No match, no vote." Now
Florida residents must jump
through the many hoops dictated
by the state if they want to vote.
Florida supervisors of elec-
tions refused to register a large
percentage of otherwise eligible
residents based on the state's pur-
ported inability to verify the appli-
cant's identifying number, such as
a driver's license number, Social
Security number or Florida identi-
fication card number.
These requirements cause
problems for many eligible vot-
ers. For example, a citizen regis-
tering as "William" might not
match if his driver's license is
issued under "Bill." A woman's
married name might not match
against an outdated database
containing her maiden name.


Moreover, matching an appli-
cant's registration number with
information in a database is an
error-prone and unreliable
process. A study by Abt Associ-
ates, a government and business
research and consulting firm,
determined that in a Florida
social-services database, up to 26
percent of the records included
city names spelled incorrectly,
including 40 different spellings of
Fort Lauderdale.
In 2006, a sample of 606 voter-
registration applications submit-
ted to the Miami-Dade supervi-
sor's office by voting rights
organizations Advancement Pro-
ject and Project Vote, found
approximately 27 percent of first-
time registrants were not added to
the registration rolls because the
state was unable to match their
identification number.
Even more troubling, while
Florida's matching procedures
not only disenfranchise numer-
ous eligible voters, they dispro-
portionately impact certain racial
and ethnic groups.
It is common for people of
Latino descent to use both mater-
nal and paternal last names or to
use one or the other inconsistent-

ly. If an individual uses a different
version of her name on an appli-
cation than is used in the data-
base, she will not be registered to
vote.
In African-American commu-
nities, it is common to modify
spellings of names spelled differ-
ently in other cultures. One recent
study reported that Jazmine, Jas-
min and Jazmin are all common
names in African-American com-
munities. Any of these names
could easily be misspelled by an
elections worker entering the
name in the database as Jasmine.
Florida's law is inconsistent
with the Help America Vote Act
(HAVA), and in fact is prohibited
by both HAVA and the Voting
Rights Act of 1965. HAVA requires
every state to obtain a unique
identifying number for voter-reg-
istration applicants. But it does
not make the verification of one's
ID number a prerequisite for
one's eligibility to vote. As such,
Florida should not go beyond its
existing methods for determining
eligibility, which include requiring
that all voters present an ID at the
polls.
State voter protection groups
have asked the Florida Secretary


of State Kurt S. Browning to reme-
dy this Election Day nightmare.
We want him to allow voters
whose identification number has
not been verified to verify their
numbers at the polls by present-
ing identification. Also voters who
are on "hold" because of the
state's inability to verify their iden-
tification number should be noti-
fied of their right to present identi-
fication at the polls. There also
should be an Internet posting of
all the people who are on "hold."
Florida is mounting one of the
most aggressive efforts in the
country to keep voters off the
rolls. Rather than trying to pare
down rolls of voters politicians
should do all they can to get more
voters to the polls.
And while all of us want the
voting rolls to be accurate, the
state must balance that with the
notion that you shouldn't keep
people off the rolls who are eligi-
ble to vote.

New food safety program for state growers planned


TALLAHASSEE In the first pro-
gram of its kind anywhere in the
country, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
that his department will institute
food safety regulations governing
all aspects of tomato production in
Florida. Bronson is praising Gover-
nor Charlie Crist for his support and
signature last night of the general
agriculture bill which includes this
vital new program.
In response to growing con-
cerns over tainted pet food and
contaminated animal feed from
China, as well as recent food-borne
illnesses associated with California
spinach and peanut butter from
Georgia, Bronson and the Florida
Tomato Exchange devised a plan
to assure consumer confidence in
what is one of Florida's largest
crops and convinced the Florida
Legislature to enact the change
into law during the recently-con-
cluded legislative session.
"Florida is the nation's largest
producer of fresh tomatoes, and
our department and industry are
committed to doing all that we can
to make sure that our crop is the
safest that it possibly can be," Bron-
son said.
Added Reggie Brown, of the
Florida Tomato Exchange, an
organization representing farmers
who produce about 90 percent of
the state's tomato crop:
"We're talking about a compre-
hensive statewide program requir-
ing mandatory standards to assure
that we produce the safest toma-
toes in the world as a means of


a-surin g ui ,'_,rfl i-n,:,."
BIo,-nson sadl thari'e believes
that the new tomato regulatory
program will serve as a model both
in Florida and throughout the
nation, and that the program will
trigger other commodity groups to
seek such oversight of the crops
that they produce.
Many Florida farmers, packing
houses and other processors cur-
rently rely on what are known as
Best Management Practices
(BMPs) or Good Agricultural Prac-


tices (GAPs) to grow and process
the crops that they grow or handle.
But the programs are voluntary,
and the change enacted by the
Legislature involving tomato pro-
duction will make such practices
mandatory.
While Bronson's department
will be required to adopt specific
rules spelling out the requirements
that must be followed, the rules are
expected to include testing of
water used to irrigate the crops, the
installation of portable toilets and


hand washing stations on farms
and in packing houses, and routine
inspections of such facilities.
"Consumers, retailers and food
establishments are understandably
concerned over the safety of the
food they eat or purchase, and this
new program will put Florida in the
forefront of what our citizens want
and deserve, Bronson said. 'I
applaud Florida's tomato growers
for stepping forward and request-
ing this regulation of their indus-
try."


Maybe it's too comfortable.
