Burn ban
still in effect
According to the Glades
County Division of Emergency
Management the burn ban in
Glades County has not been lift-
ed, and will remain in effect until
further notice. For information,
call (863) 946-6020.
Newwatering
limits in effect
The Okeechobee area is now
under Phase Ill water restric-
tions.
Lawn watering is now limited
to one day a week from 4 until 8
a.m. and 5 until 7 p.m. for low
volume hand watering.
Addresses with odd numbers
are permitted to water on Satur-
days and addresses with even
numbers are permitted to irri-
gate on Sundays.
More information is available
by calling (800) 250-4200; or, by
going to the South Florida Water
Management website at
www.sfwmd.gov.
Navigation lock
on river closed
The S-65E navigation lock on
the Kissimmee River will be
closed to navigation due to low
water levels.
This South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
lock will remain closed until
water levels have returned to
safe operating levels.
Low water levels inside the
lock chamber have caused the
concrete sill at the entrance and
the manatee protection device
installed in the bottom of the
lock chamber to become a navi-
gation hazard. Also, the lake-
ward approach to the navigation
lock has : become shallow
enough that boaters may have
difficulty navigating safely.
For information, contact the
SFWMD Okeechobee Service
Center at (800) 250-4200 or
(863) 462-5260.
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 inter-
active option on their web site at
www.sfwmd.gov that allows res-
idents to enter their zip code to
find the water restrictions for
their area.

Okeechobee County's Bits and Spurs 4-H Horse Club members enjoyed their last event
of the school year on June 2 with horseback games and a party at Mi-Cin Ranch. In the
Egg Race, riders had to balance raw eggs on plastic spoons while walking, trotting and
cantering their horses. Crystal Young on her horse Shadow, came in third in the event.

race, a timed event, riders had to ride
up to a barrel, grab the flag from the
bucket on top of the barrel and ride
back to the other end of the arena.

Xeric landscaping conserves water rm


By Angela Sachson
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
Program
Now that the drought of 2007
is officially worse than previous
droughts, a slow recovery is pre-
dicted. Water managers tell us we
are under phase Ill restrictions,
which means watering is allowed
only one day a week. It may be
tim6 to re-introduce ourselves to
terms like Xeriscaping, Native
Plants, and Conservation.
Xeric landscaping is landscap-
ing aimed at conserving water. it
is now the norm in western
states. Xeriscaping is a copyright-
ed term of the Denver Water
Board; in Florida, the term "Flori-
da-Friendly landscaping" includes
using good water conservation
practices in our Florida Yards.
Although Florida is not as arid,
as say, Colorado, we do have a
very dry season every year. And
we also have water shortages.
The concept of Xeriscaping uses
natural systems and native plants
as a model for your Yard.
Native plants have been flour-
ishing in our drought/rainy sea-
sonal climates for longer than we
can imagine. Native plants may
be thought of as spindly weed-like
things with inconspicuous flow-
ers and tiny leaves. But some
drought-tolerant natives include
un-weed-like beautyberry,
mimosa, fire bush, milkweed and
sea grape.
Three Florida Yards & Neigh-
borhoods principles come to
mind in drought:
Right plant, right place:
choose plants according to site

conditions and group them
according to light and water
needs.
Water efficiently.
Mulch to keep moisture in
and weeds out.
Even mindful of water restric-
tions, I find myself wanting to
water at least some thirsty plants
every day. They wilt and I water.
To stay in compliance I use "grey"
water from the shower. But as I
look around my yard and neigh-
borhood, many plants look happy
to forego the watering ritual, even
in this severe drought.

Some drought tolerant
plants
Here are some plants I have
noticed laughing at the drought:
Shrubs: Plumbago both
blue and white forms are thriving.
Bougainvillea is happy to be
growing in the dry soil. Crape
Myrtle can be shrub or tree but,
once established is very drought
tolerant. So is Wax Myrtle. These
plants are also happy in the rainy
season!
Ornamental Grasses: these are
staunch survivors in drought and
come in hundreds of forms.
Water-storing cactus and succu-
lents seem designed for drought.
Groundcovers like Perennial
Peanut, Portulaca and vining
Mimosa (Sensitive Plant) like it


Following their new haircuts, Okeechobee Freshman Campus principal Andy Brewer (left)
and faculty member Dan Thomas (right) compared their new looks to that of student Char-
lene Kinser (center). Brewer and Thomas received their haircuts on the last day of school
by students Austin Pluskot, who earned OFC's top FCAT reading score and Chris
Entwistle, who made a perfect score on the FCAT math test.


OFC faculty members get new looks


Okeechobee Freshman Cam-
pus principal Andy Brewer and
faculty member Dan Thomas
received new haircuts on
Wednesday, May 30, the last day
of school for students. The hair-
cuts were given to them by stu-
dents Chris Entwistle and Austin
Pluskot.
Mr. Entwistle earned the right
to shear Mr. Thomas' head by
achieving a perfect score on the
FCAT math test. Mr. Pluskot
received OFC's top FCAT reading
score. His reward was the honor
of cutting Mr. Brewer's hair.


Early in the school year, Mr.
Brewer and Mr. Thomas had
issued a chal-
lenge to the '.
students.
They prom-
ised to shave
their heads into Mohawks if the
students performed well on.the
FCAT. When the data came in, it
was soon evident that the OFC
students had performed excep-
tionally well on the test and the
administrator and faculty, mem-
ber would have to make good on
their promises.

Okeechobee Freshman Campus student Chris
Entwistle (left) gave faculty member Dan
Thomas (right) a new haircut on the last day of
school. Entwistle received this honor for mak-
ing a perfect score on the FCAT math test.


In addition to the haircutting
ceremony, the student body
made such impressive gains on
this year's FCAT tests that they
earned a field day on the last day
of school. The faculty planned a
series of fun activities including a
slip n' slide, volleyball, basketball
and ping pong games. There
were also arts and crafts, video
games, movies and dancing to
music provided by a disc jockey.
The day's activities ended with a
student versus faculty softball
game.

dry as do most herbs.
Flowering annuals and peren-
nials: there are lots of these plants
that thrive in heat and drought,
including Salvia, Lantana, Core-
opsis, Coneflower, Periwinkle and
Josephs Coat (Amaranth) that
come in many beautiful shapes
and sizes and colors. You could
create a whole landscape using
only one of these species, but
diversity itself is another principle
of a Florida Friendly Yard.
I have noticed that the ferns in
my shade garden are less thirsty
than the flowering plants. Most
plants that thrive in shade are
pretty drought tolerant except, of
course, impatiens.

Watering Plants -
new and old
And, before I run out and
replace all my thirsty plants with
drought-tolerant species, I need
to remind myself that newly trans-
planted plants require extra water
for a time.
How much extra water is
needed to get plants started? One
rule of thumb is six-months for a
gallon container, one-year for a
three-gallon container plant, and
six to 12-months for each inch in
trunk diameter for newly planted
trees. Seeds need to stay moist,
and plants in pots-especially
clay pots-need more frequent
watering than those planted in the
ground.
There are some other things to
do which will help. Make sure
your gutters run on to soil and not
concrete. Raise the cutting height
of your lawnmower. Taller grass

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.


We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go
wrong, and citizens need to know about problems.)


Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you
clip and tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The
vast majority of what happens in our community IS good.)


How are we doing?

develops deeper roots with more
water holding capabilities. Water
turfgrass and bedding plants only
when they look stressed.
Don't do anything to promote
plant growth-like fertilizing or
pruning. Consider installing a drip
irrigation system and also build a
rain barrel. Watch for a rain barrel
workshop coming to an exten-
sion office near you! While our
local rainy season began on May
14, we can still get our rain barrels
installed in June.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,

you need additional information
on drought tolerant landscaping,

Have you ever received a sur-
prise gift from a dear friend, and as
you were opening it, you made this
remark: "Now, they shouldn't
have done this!" What a wonder-
ful feeling!
The heart-

experience of
getting some
thing for noth-
ing is actually
be yond
description.
These rare
and wonder-
By a ful occasions
ByPaul are few and far
Buxton between. They
are so rare, in
fact, that we are inclined to ques-
tion the motives of many of the
most noble acts of love.
What else can be expected of a
person who lives in a world where
it seems to be "every man for him-
self?" What valuable time a person
has seems to be devoted to his fam-
ily group, and there isn't enough to
share with others.
Many years ago, someone
wrote these words: "Love never
asks how little it can do; love
always asks how much." To this
statement, we could add: "love
goes father than any man could
look for who is guided by cold and
calculating reasoning."
Thought to Remember: In my
haste, let me find what guides me.

Shiner's Diner opens

in Treasure Island


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
Offering a wide array of meal
choices, Shiner's Diner has
recently joined the collection of
local businesses that decorate the
Okeechobee roadside.
"My wife has worked in the
restaurant business for years, I
just kind of fell into it," said Tim
Casanova, owner of the business.
"I was looking for property and
here we are," he added.
The Shiner's Diner is located at
3651 Highway 441 S.E., in the
Treasure Island Plaza. The menu
includes dishes ranging from bis-
cuits and gravy to grilled ruebens,
with diner specials that change
daily offered after 4 p.m.


"The diner specials vary,
except on Fridays. Friday's special
is prime rib," said Mr. Casanova.
The company has dine-in and
take-out between 7 a.m. and 8
p.m., Monday through Thursday;
from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday;
and, from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. on
Saturday and Sunday. They also
offer delivery to businesses during
the week for lunch.
The Shiner's Diner can be con-
tacted at 763-6885.
