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 navigation hazard. Also, the
lakeward approach to the
navigation lock has become
shallow enough that boaters
may have difficulty navigating
safely.

Lawmakers pass tax package


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The ax fell Thursday when
state lawmakers passed a
sweeping tax reform package
aimed at slashing property taxes
by $31.6 billion, or 16 percent,
over the next five years.
But just how deep the ax will
cut is not yet known. With the
passage of the package, many
city and county governments
will be faced with having to cut
services or personnel due to the
lowering of the amount of ad
valorem taxes they will receive.
"I'm all right with it," said


State Representative Richard
Machek (D-78) in a phone
interview Friday morning. "We
need some sort of tax relief. I
don't think Okeechobee County
will be hit too hard."
But in Okeechobee County
where the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office and the
Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue
Department are funded totally by
ad valorem taxes, the measure
could have debilitating effects.
Just how bad won't be known
for awhile.
The legislation passed this
week will roll back tax rates to
2006-07 and cap them at that


level.
The City of Okeechobee
also has to face some tough
decisions.
According to city manager
Brian Whitehall, preliminary
figures indicate the city will lose


Summer open house: Helps fund Wildlife Center

I l l '. .

were transported to Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation Center to be cared for until they
were ready to be returned to the wild.\

Recent fire displaces wildlife


By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The recent brush fires from
Buckhead Ridge to Lakeport
left much of the wildlife in the
area homeless. As a result,
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilitation
Center has once again opened
its doors to a large influx of
displaced animals.
Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center rescues,
rehabilitates and returns
animals to their natural habitat.
The center has been open
for 12 years with an average of
1,000 animals passing through
its gates each year. The recent
fires have put a strain on the
center's small budget. The
center is a registered non-
profit 501 (c)(3) educational
facility and relies completely
on donations to keep its doors
open.
To help defray the costs in
rehabilitating these animals
and those others already
in the center's care, the
Wildlife Center will host its
annual "summer open house
fundraiser" Saturday, June
16, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.
Animal lovers are guaranteed


The mother of these 3-week-old bobcats abandoned them
during the massive brush fire along Lake Okeechobee
several weeks ago. They will be taken care of until they
are old enough to be turned loose.


to see panthers, bobcats, gators
and many other beautiful and
exotic creatures.
In the event of rain, the
event will be postponed until
Saturday, June 23, from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m.


Visitors will also be able to
enjoy the amazing Butterfly
Haven that opened last
summer. This natural open-air

increases."
He did say, however, that he
has received a "clear message
from the city council" they don't
want to layoff any city employees
to make up for the loss in tax
revenue.
But even more controversial
is the constitutional amendment
that will go before Florida voters
on Jan. 29. In the House, the bill
was known as HB 3-B.
"It's nasty," said Rep. Machek.
"It's like a wolf in sheep's
clothing, as far as the longevity
of it."

between $85,000 and $91,000 in
taxes. Those number, he added,

variables.

Better roads



lie ahead


for the Viking


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
There may be some road
improvements in store for the
residents of Viking.
When the Coquina Water
Control District board of
directors met Wednesday, June
13, they discussed road and
canal conditions.
Board member John Entry
was authorized to negotiate
with Triple Diamond Ranch,
for shell to be mined from the
ranch. Triple Diamond had
offered to provide shell to be
placed on the road between
the ranch and Peavine Trail.
Coquina would have to mine
and spread the shell.
Mr. Entry will be asking
for an additional 10,000 cubic
yards of shell rock above what


would be needed for the road.
He calculated that this amount
would offset Coquina's cost to
mine and spread the shell. This
excess shell would be used for
emergency repairs on other
roads.
The road to Triple Diamond
is part of the 52 miles of roads
providing access to water
control structures that Coquina
is authorized to repair under
their five-year water control
,plan.
In another road related
matter, the board decided to
approach the Okeechobee
County Board of County
Commissioners to see if
the county would provide
occasional help with road
maintenance. They would also

Red Cross Heroes Campaign is in full swing


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
The local branch of the
American Red Cross is currently
holding a program known as
the Hero's Campaign. It is a
local program aimed at helping
the Red Cross to raise money to
fund the services that they offer
in our community.
"The idea is for each hero
to raise $1,000 in four weeks,"
said Debbie Riddle, branch
manager for the Okeechobee
Branch of the Red Cross. "It
doesn't have to be individuals;
it can be groups of people."
Through the program the
Red Cross picks one month
each year in which they will
make a concerted effort to raise
money in the community. This


year the month the month of
June was chosen. The goal is
to raise $25,000 that will stay in
Okeechobee to fund the local.
programs.
"Every penny raised stays
right here in Okeechobee,"
stated Ms. Riddle. "That really
matters to people here and they
have been very supportive."
This is the second year
that Ms. Riddle has used the
campaign to raise money
and so far it has proven very
effective.
"This is a grassroots
campaign that has successfully
helped local chapters of all
sizes, especially the smaller
ones," commented Ms. Riddle.
"It raises pretty good revenue
and increases awareness of


what we do."
The American Red Cross
is a national non-profit
organization which traditionally
offers disaster relief, health
and safety training, and blood
donation and distribution. Our
own local branch does not
take blood d ions, but does
have a Bloodmobile that comes
out once a month to collect
donations.
Locally they offer classes
such as CPR training, infant and
adult, first aid training, blood-
born pathogen education,
babysitting, and lifeguard
training.
They also offer armed force
emergency services. Through
this program they curry

The Bank of America located on N. Parrot Ave. hosted a lunch
on June 15 to raise money for the American Red Cross' Hero's

Tax
Continued From Page 1
This amendment, crafted by
House Speaker Marco Rubio
(R-West Miami) and Senate
President Ken Pruitt (R-Port St.
Lucie) would replace Save Our
Homes for about 75 percent of
homesteaders, and the $25,000
homestead exemption with a
:super exemption."
This super exemption would
exempt 75 percent of the first
$200,000 of a home's value and 15
percent of the next $300,000. With
this exemption, homesteaders
would receive higher homestead
exemptions of up to $195,000 for
a $500,000 home.
An estimated 73 percent of
homesteaders would get a lower
tax bill -- at least initially. Those
who don't gain an advantage
would keep existing benefits.
However, after seven years things
go the other way and property


taxes will go up. Currently,
homeowners can calculate their
yearly taxes with some degree of
certainty, said Rep. Machek.
"That's the one (HB 3-B)
that can kill you (Okeechobee
County)," said Rep. Machek.
"It's great for taxpayers, but not
good for services. This is the one
that will really hurt Okeechobee
County because you don't have a
strong tax base.
"Okeechobee County will
be hurt by these homesteaders
because those people living in
mobile homes, who are retired
and living on fixed incomes, will
pay no taxes. That's what will
hurt. To me, everyone should
pay on the first $25,000 and
that should pay for most of the
services," he added.
For Mr. Whitehall, this measure
is even worse than Rep. Machek
makes it out to be.
"Devastating doesn't even fit
the bill," he said. "I can't fathom
how we're going to remain

solvent. At this time, it's too
difficult to tell."
He went on to say that
this bill will also take away
"home rule" and will put the
legislature in charge of things that
municipalities should be doing,
like setting their mill rate.
"It takes away the protection
for county and city governments,"
said Rep. Machek." We're
removing your safety net and
that's not fair. Cities and counties
will have to come to Tallahassee
every year to beg for their
millage."
It will take a 65 percent vote
to put this proposal into law. But
if the constitutional amendment
is passed by voters, there is the
possibility that the Okeechobee
County Board of County'
Commissioners could "opt out"
by a super majority vote.
Although Rep. Machek said
he was comfortable with the bill
passed yesterday, also known
as HB 1-B, the constitutional

amendment is something that he
is adamantly against.
"I have a feeling taxpayers are
going to have a difficult time with
this constitutional amendment,"
he said. "Constitutional
amendments are there forever,
they can't be tweaked from year
to year."
If passed, this measure would
also reduce funding for education
by $7.2 billion in five -years. This
comes on the heels of a $5.5
million unfunded mandate sent
down to cities and counties by
state lawmakers earlier this year.
Rep. Machek said Democrats
voted against this measure (3-B)
because it takes too much power
away from local governments. ,
He went on to say 'that "the
measure was brought up during
this week's special session
"because leadership wanted it."
"There was no choice," he
said. "It was cut and dried. The
voters are the ones to have the say
now."

like to reach an agreement with
the county that would allow them
to mine shell on county owned
lots in Viking.
Turning to canal work, the
board learned that the project
to widen and deepen Canal E
should be completed by next
week. Canal E is the first of
Coquina's five canals to be
narrowed from 80 feet to 40 feet
wide and deepened from 2 to 6 or
8 feet. This will provide for better
drainage and water control.
Since we are entering the rainy
season, it may be a while before
work can start on the next canal
in the plan -- Canal D.
The canal work is part of
Coquina's five-year $3 million
water control plan that involves
replacing culverts, straightening
canals and general maintenance
on Coquina's 25 miles of canals,
retention area and outfall
structures. Also included in the
plan is authorization for repairs

The work on Canal E is
being done with surplus funds.
However, the cost of the five-year
plan will be borne by an increase
in the assessment of property
owners. The proposed budget
for Coquina for the coming fiscal
year is based on a $25 increase in
assessment form $47.64 per acre
to $62.64 per acre. The board
will conduct a public hearing
on Aug.1 before adopting the
proposed budget and increased
assessment.
At this time, it is believed that
recent tax reforms will not affect
Coquina's operations.
The group presented a plaque

his retirement after 35 years of

(FEMA) will deliver additional
federal disaster assistance to
supplement state and local
recovery efforts impacted by the
2005 hurricane season. The bill
allows for additional funding
to states specifically under the
Agency's Public Assistance
and Other Needs Assistance
programs.
The increase in federal


assistance is being made
available to Louisiana, Texas,
Mississippi, Florida and Alabama
to cover costs in connection
with hurricanes Katrina, Wilma,
Dennis and Rita.
"FEMA remains committed
to assisting in the recovery
of these states hardest hit by
the hurricanes," said FEMA
Administrator David Paulison.
"This supplemental funding
provides the agency a greater
ability to continue to reduce
the burden on the affected
communities."


The increased federal
assistance was authorized on
May 25, 2007, when the President
signed H.R. 2206, "U.S. Troop
Readiness, Veterans' Care, Katrina
Recovery, and Iraq Accountability
Appropriations Act of 2007"
(Public Law #110-28).
Under FEMA's Public
Assistance Program, the federal
share of eligible projects to rebuild
infrastructure and replace critical
assets is set at a minimum 75
percent federal funding, with state
and local governments providing
the additional 25 percent.


Following certain extreme
situations where state and local
hardships necessitate, the cost-
share has been amended to 90
percent federal funding with a
10 percent state and local match.
This recent provision requires the
federal government to cover 100
percent for all eligible projects
under the Public Assistance
Program for the designated
disasters.
Florida is estimated to
be awarded $45,572,000 for
hurricane Dennis, $48,203,000
for hurricane Katrina and


$172,544,000 for hurricane Wilma
through the Public Assistance
Program.
FEMA is in the process of
coordinating the adjustment
to each project for all eligible
disasters. This will be a seamless
process for the impacted states,
requiring no additional work on
their part.
For FEMA's Other Needs
Assistance program, under
which additional aid is provided
to individuals and households
impacted by disasters, the state
is required, by law, to provide 25


percent of the costs. The recent
legislation also requires the
federal government to pay 100
percent of those costs for these
specific disasters. FEMA will be
reimbursing eligible states for
the cost share of the program
already paid to FEMA, and any
outstanding bills related to these
events will be canceled.
Florida is estimated to be
reimbursed $3,741,000 for
hurricane Dennis and $47,865,000
for hurricane Wilma through the
Other Needs Assistance Program.

There is a story from Arabia
that is worth repeating.
A young man came to a wise
old sheik and asked, "What kind
of people live in El Kamen? I
would like to move my family
.. .. from our vil-
"What kind
of people live
in your vil-
lage now?"
asked the
sheik.
"Unpleasant,
By selfish and
By Paul unfriendly,"
Buxton said the young
man.
"You will find them to be the
same in El Kamen -- they're
unpleasant, selfish and unfriend-
ly. advised the wise old sheik.
In a few days, another young
man approached the old sheik
with the same question about El
Kamen.
"What kind of people live in
your village?" he again inquired.
"Wonderful, thoughtful and
considerate," the young man
said.
"The people in El Kamen are
the same -- wonderful, thought-
ful and considerate," the old
man smilingly replied.
This is just a story, but isn't it
true that by our attitudes, we
make life just about what it is?

visit the page as often as you would like and share your com-
ments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You
can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at (863) 467-2033, fax (863) 763-5901 or sending
e-mail to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail sub-
missions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee,
Fla. 34973. Comments will be published in the newspaper as
space permits.
DIRT: The dirt that is piled on Lake Okeechobee, are they taking
that off? Also, how do they get the trucks out there? And is there any
truth in the story that two trucks and a crane got mired out there in the
muck?
Editor's Note: Yes, the dirt will be hauled to a site away from the
lake. The trucks drive onto the dry lake bed, where they are loaded.
Yes, a crane and at least one truck have been stuck.

TAX: I'm calling about the 5-cent tax on gas. I would just like to say
that I don't think its right. I think that everyone in Okeechobee needs
to take a look at who they vote for when voting comes back around.
Not everybody makes the kind of money they make. A lot of people
only make minimum wage and they say that 5 cents on a gallon is not
going to hurt a person. Five cents on a gallon will hurt a lot of people
that don't make that much money and are living week-to-week on a
minimum wage check, that don't make $100,000 a year. I think that
they need to step back and take a look at what they are doing to the
county of Okeechobee.

EXPULSIONS: Just talking about expelling 12 kids, they actually
expelled 10. This whole story is about one kid bringing a BB gun to
school. Let's hear about the other nine children; why are they getting
expelled. Okeechobee expels all of their children that have minor
problems all the way to major ones. I think that because Okeechobee
has corporal punishment we should take advantage of that before we
just give up on our kids education. I have a child that got expelled. The
schools and I can show anyone that wants to see it the paperwork
that they gave me for expulsion. Stupid stuff. Those kids want to go
home. So now we are just going to expel them for a year or two?
Let's give them the paddle like we got when we were kids. There is
nothing wrong with the last generation. We paddled our kids. They
did something wrong and we paddled them and sent them back to
class crying. Let's do that now. I think we'll have a different impact
on everything. Everyone says "don't hit your kid, don't hit your kid."
We were all hit when we were younger. Our parents used to take
switches off the trees, but we're fine. We have some problems but we
are nothing like this generation. We should take a look at that.
Editor's Note: First, there were 12 students that had been
recommended for expulsion. However, only 11 were actually
expelled. These 11 students various including: three were expelled for
defiance of authority; one for violence fighting or battery; one was
expelled for battery and assault/battery on a school board employee;
two for defiance of authority and fighting or battery; one for defiance
of authority and alcohol/drugs; two for defiance of authority,
inappropriate personal conduct; and, one for possession of firearms,
knives or other weapons. The last one recommended for expulsion
was due to the violation of Section 11 of the Code of Student Conduct
-- the possession of firearms, knives or other weapons. But, the school
board voted 4-1 against the superintendent's recommendation for the
expulsion of this student.

CANALS: I think it is about time that someone did something about
these canals. The one we're on here at the mouth of Taylor Creek has
weeds that are 15 foot high, rats and snakes. And we are paying high
taxes on waterfront property that we haven't had for a long time now.
But the thing is these weeds and the things that are in there. I hope that
somebody that knows anything about this would do something. I don't
know what happened to the $900,000 they had to start dredging and
working on these canals, but I hope that something can be done.

GAS TAX: I want to know why the county commissioners raised
the tax 5 cents on gas. Isn't our gas high enough here in Okeechobee
County? The commissioners need to be replaced. Also, I'm calling
about that dike where their digging over on S.R. 78. That has nothing
to do with Lake Okeechobee; they just want to waste the tax payer's
money.

DEER: You had a picture of a doe and her newborn fawn on the
front page the other day. I've seen many people loading up their guns
to go down there and slaughter those beautiful animals. Please do not
give out the location of any animals you may photograph for the paper
because there are so many people in this town who will immediately
set out to kill them.

Letters to the Editor


Immigration laws
The United States Senate
spoke loud and clear for the
American people -- this issue is
too important to create new laws
while ignoring existing laws.
The American Legion, most
Americans and the majority
of legal immigrants oppose
any measures that sanction
or condone coming to this
country in any manner other
than as stipulated by existing
law, whether disguised as
"undocumented workers" or
"guest-worker programs" or
any other wordsmith that is
synonymous with amnesty.
Americans understand the
meaning of "immigration," but
the adjectives "legal" and "illegal"


seem to be deliberately ignored
by some.
The American Legion's official
position is simple enforcement,
enforcement and enforcement.
Assimilation into American
society by legal immigrants is
important to the nation's welfare.
However, the failure to properly
enforce existing immigration laws
divides the nation and manifests
both serious racial and cultural
turmoil.
The message to Capitol Hill is
clear:
Oppose any great influx of
legal immigrants and support
immigration quotas set on a
moderate and regulated scale
in numbers that enable the
immigrants to be readily absorbed

into the culture and life stream of
the U.S.
Call for a strong and
ceremonially rich citizenship
naturalization process.
Remain steadfast in the belief
that all legal immigrants seeking
citizenship should possess a level
of proficiency with the English
language and an understanding
of American history and
government.
Advocate that a naturalization
ceremony should be mandatory
and conducted in the English
language and in a U.S. District
Court.
Support legislation that
allows legal immigrants who are
U.S. military veterans, with less
than three years of active-duty


service, to seek naturalization if
they are injured or their injuries
were aggravated while on active-
duty with the U.S. Armed Forces,
resulting in a discharge under
honorable conditions.
Before enacting new laws
that legalize illegal conduct, try
enforcing existing laws.

Reflections from the Pulpit

Unbelieving Thomas is a believer


John 20:24-29
By Reverend Pete Gawda
Through the ages one of Jesus'
disciples has, I believe, been given
a bad rap. He has been referred
to as "Doubting Thomas."
The dictionary even refers to a
doubting Thomas as:
"A person who habitually
doubts; chronic skeptic." But I
prefer to call him "Unbelieving
Thomas." There are several
positive lessons we can learn from
Thomas.
The week before the incidents
related in John 20 the disciples
were gathered in the upper room
and Jesus appeared to them.
This was the evening of Jesus'
resurrection.
For some unknown reason,
Thomas was not there. He
had missed assembling on the
Sabbath with other Christians
as we are commanded to do in
Hebrews 10:25. By being absent,
he missed the presence of Jesus
and the fellowship of other
Christians. Missing church has
been compared with raking one
coal of fire from a fireplace out
unto the hearth. By itself, that coal
will grow cold. However, left with
the other coals, it will stay hot and
glow brightly.
Thomas had missed the
presence of Jesus but he wanted
to believe. One definition of doubt
is:" lack of conviction" Thomas
certainly had convictions.
Unbelief implies lack of belief
because of insufficient evidence.
Thomas demanded evidence.
He wanted to go to the source.
On such an important matter,


he wanted to see for himself.
He would probably have made
a good newspaper reporter. It
was Thomas' questions to Jesus
in John 14:5 that lead to Jesus'
famous statement in the following
verse:" I am the way, the truth,
and the life; no man cometh unto
the Father, but by me."
Thomas set his own conditions
for belief in verse 25:"Except I
shall see in his hands the print of
the nails, and put my finger into
the print of the nails, and thrust
my hand into his side, I will not
believe."
He wanted to have more
knowledge before he had faith.
He was honest and had an
open mind and a desire to confirm
the truth.
He was honestly seeking.
Notice he did not stubbornly say:
"I will not believe." Thomas said
he would believe if his conditions
were met.
This was not stubborn unbelief
that would never believe. I think
he wanted to believe, he was only
asking for what the other disciples
had experienced the previous
Sabbath. He would not be a
hypocrite and go along with the
crowd. He spoke openly stating
his disbelief.
So what happened?
Jesus always reveals Himself
to those who honestly and
sincerely seek Him. According
to the Jewish way of reckoning
days, it was the following Sabbath
and Jesus appeared under the
same conditions as the previous
Sabbath.
Notice that Jesus was not
faultfinding. He was loving and
forgiving, treating Thomas with


the same consideration He has
shown to the others.
Once again Jesus said "Peace
be unto you." The same thing He
had said earlier. He wanted to be
the same Savior and Redeemer
to Thomas as He had been to
the others. The peace that Jesus
brings meets all our needs; it gives
us joy in the midst of adverse
circumstances. This peace gives
us courage to work for the Lord.
In Thomas' case, this peace was
a means of recovery to put him
in the same status with the other
disciples. This peace put Thomas
where he should be as the peace
of Jesus puts all of us where we
should be.
In verse 27, Jesus responded to
Thomas' demands.
Thomas demanded evidence
and Jesus met the challenge. As a
result, Thomas becomes aware of
God's love and forgiveness.
Because of his experience,
Thomas was able to say in verse
28 "My Lord and my God." This
statement was made by someone
who is often put down as a
doubter.
Jesus knew that that there
would be others through the ages
who would be dealing with doubt
and disbelief.
We owe a lot to unbelieving
Thomas. He wanted only what the
other disciples had experienced.
He was honest. He set conditions
for his belief. When those
conditions were met, he believed.
We have his testimony today.
Because of his experience, he
said: "My Lord and my God."
Are you able to make that same
statement by faith today?

Okeechobee News, Saturday, June 16,2007


FWC turns down alligator management proposals


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) decided Wednesday not
to open the door to allowing
homeowners to dispose of small
nuisance alligators on their own.
Rather, they decided to continue
the requirement that people


contact the FWC, and the agency
will dispatch nuisance alligator
trappers to remove the reptiles.
FWC commissioners,
meeting in a two-day session in
Melbourne, also turned thumbs
down to a proposal to issue state-
wide permits to recreational


alligator hunters and agreed to
continue issuing county-wide
permits.
They also decided not to allow
daytime recreational alligator
hunting or the use of small-
caliber handguns to dispatch
alligators.


On the other hand,
commissioners did approve,
in concept, an array of new
alligator management provisions,
including use of artificial lures
to reel in alligators during state-
wide harvests and provisions
to streamline requirements


of the Private Lands Alligator
Management Program.
For instance, commissioners
approved removing the 6 to 9-
foot closed slot limit on alligators
taken in the FWC's Private Lands
Alligator Management Program
and to pursue broader public


awareness regarding living
peacefully with alligators.
Based on the commissioners
guidance, FWC staff will prepare
appropriate rule proposals fui
further consideration in future
Commission meetings.


FWC approves changes to snook rules


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
approved changes to snook
bag and size limits and harvest
seasons during its .meeting in
Melbourne Thursday.
New rules reduce the snook
daily bag limit form tow fish per
person to one on Florida's Atlantic
coast, which means a one-fish
daily limit on snook will apply
statewide.
Rules also change-the 27-34
inches total length snook slot limit
to 28-32 inches in Atlantic waters
and 28-33 inches in Florida's Gulf,


Everglades National Park and
Monroe County waters.
In addition, the rules add the
first half of December and the
month of February to the Dec. 15
- Jan. 31 and May August closed
harvest seasons for snook in the
Gulf, Everglades and Monroe
County. However, the Dec. 15
- Jan 31 and June August closed
harvest seasons in Atlantic waters
remain unchanged.
The rules also allow anglers
to carry more than one cast net
aboard a vessel while fishing for
snook.


"These rule changes are
intended to provide additional
protection for Florida's valuable
snook populations, which are
considered to be fairly healthy
on the state's Atlantic and Gulf
Coasts," said FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto. "However,
the FWC believes a reduction
in harvest is necessary to help
achieve the Commission's
management goal for snook and
sustained and improve the fishery
for the future."
The latest FWC snook
stock assessment concluded


the management goal of a 40
percent spawning potential ratio
for this fishery is hot being met,
and increasing fishing effort and
habitats loss and contributing to
the decline. Spawning Potential
ratio is the ratio of egg production
of mature fish in a fished
population to the egg production
that would exist if the population
were not fished.
The new snook rules
take effect in July and will be
implemented when the snook
harvest season reopens on Sept.


FWC passes new captive wildlife rules


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
passed a new rule concerning
FWC-managed lands and
approved a draft rule outlining
bonding requirements for
exhibiting potentially dangerous
animals and venomous reptiles.
Final public hearings for the draft
rule will be at the September
Commission meeting. The FWC
took the action during its two-day
meeting in Melbourne.
Commissioners also approved
members of a panel to evaluate a
petition to change the listing status
of the peregrine falcon during
2007-08.
Following an overview of the
imperiled species management
plan process, commissioners
reviewed drafts of management
plans for manatees, gopher
tortoises and Panama City
crayfish. Final consideration of
the management plans for the
manatee and gopher tortoise will
take place at the FWC's September
meeting in St. Petersburg. Final
consideration for the Panama
City crayfish will take place at the
Commission's February meeting


in Panama City.
Commissioners also
approved an interim policy to
end entombment of gopher
tortoises, requiring developers to
relocate them, rather than allow
the animals to be buried in their
burrows amid development. The
interim policy will remain in effect
until the FWC can launch the new
permitting framework, proposed
in the draft gopher tortoise
management plan.
FWC staff presented an array
of proposed changes to the
'Alligator Management Program.
Commissioners directed the staff
to proceed with developing rules
to change some of the allowable
methods of taking alligators and to
step up efforts to make Floridians
more aware of ways to co-exist
with alligators peacefully.
In addition, commissioners
approved land-acquisition
proposals including the Nature
Conservancy's Davidson Ranch
parcel as a mitigation park, the
Nature Conservancy's donation
of the Janet Butterfield Brooks
Preserve as a mitigation park and
two donated Nature Conservancy


parcels as additions to Chinsegut
Wildlife and Environmental Area.
Concerning marine issues, the
FWC approved rule amendments
for snook that lower the daily
recreational bag limit from two
fish to one on Florida's Atlantic
Coast and-narrow the current 27-
34 inches total length snook slot
limit to 28-32 inches in Atlantic
waters and 28-33 inches in Gulf,
Everglades National Park and
Monroe County waters.
Rule amendments also add
the first half of December and all
of February to the closed harvest
season in Gulf, Everglades and
Monroe County waters and
allow snook anglers statewide
to carry more than one cast net
aboard a vessel. The new snook
rules will be in place in time for
the reopening of snook season in
September.
Commissioners also discussed
proposed new rules that would
allow licensed trap fishers to
designate people to recover and
possess their traps when the
governor and FWC declare an
emergency. The proposed rules
also would exempt local, state and


federal officials from having to get
FWC approval before removing
traps, derelict traps and trap
debris from areas where trapping
is prohibited.
In addition, the Commission
proposed a rule amendment that
would allow recreational fishers
to use fold-up blue crab traps with
square sides. A final public hearing
on all of these proposed rules will
be scheduled for the September
Commission meeting.
In other marine fisheries
action, Commissioners directed
staff to continue to work with
stakeholders and develop a full
range of management options
for the Atlantic and Gulf coasts
that work toward achieving a 40-
percent escapement goal for red
drum.
The FWC also heard an update
on issues and proposed rules for
spiny lobster and discussed federal
fisheries management issued.
The meeting agenda is
available online at MyFWC.com/
commission/2007/JunO7/index.
html.
The next FWC meeting is set
for Sept. 12-14 in St. Petersburg.

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-
ership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
* Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
yaur projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and intern
est payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
* The sum of these costs is referred to as "PIT/." Monthly homeowners* association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insuianco arc added to the PITI.
* Your lihousiny 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-lo-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.
