burn ban in Okeechobee

5544.

hdn sa~nonuot lifted

According to the Glades
County Division of Emergency
Management the burn ban in
Glades County has not been
lifted, and will remain in ef-
fect until further notice. For
information, call (863) 946-
6020.

New watering
limits in effect
The Okeechobee area is
now under Phase III water re-
strictions.
\ Lawn watering is now lim-
ited to one day a week from 4
until 8 a.m. and 5 until 7 p.m.
for low volume hand water-
mng.
Addresses with odd num-
bers are permitted to water on
Saturday and addresses with
even numbers are permitted
to irrigate on Sundays.
More information is avail-
able by calling (800) 250-4200;
or, by going to the South Flor-
ida Water Management web-
site at www.sfwmd.gov.

Navigation lock
on river closed
The S-65E navigation lock
on th@ Kissimmee River will
be closed to navigation due to
low water levels.
This South Florida Water
Management District (SFW-
MD) lock will remain closed
until water levels have re-
turned to safe operating ley-
els.
Low water levels inside the
lock chamber have caused the
concrete sill at the entrance
and the manatee protection
device installed in 'the bot-
tom 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.
For information, contact
the SFWMD Okeechobee Ser-
vice Center at (800) 250-4200
or (863) 462-5260.

"As soon as Mother and Dad
were asleep, I took the flashlight
and crawled under the car to find
that five of the six universal bolts
had dropped off. Next morning,
as soon as I could see, I got out
to look around for some replace-
ments. There was Henry Ran-
dall's honey house just across the
rad ean s lodnme tnee botse or
place, we were ready to roll and
headed for Palmdale Post Office
where we picked up our mail
forwarded from our residence,
Evansville, Indiana. One of the
letters was from the Evansville
bank where our last $200 was
hndpst sdly e kwof und o
during the Depression.) Dad had
a five dollar bill and I had a half
dollar, which I got changed into
two quarters so I could each of
my parentssa Christmas pre e w
offered to help us find Grandpa
land so we could set up camp. He
'led us to a spot so etherally beau-
tiful that we were speechless.
As you can see, the story is not
over. We will continue with more
of the story of the Wadlow family
on Fisheating Creek next week.

was 23 years old.
"Mr. Ragsdale started us east.
We turned around and went out
over Billy's Creek, leaving the
paying behind and proceeded to
LaBelle on a shell road, then by
sand Road 27, until we finally saw
a few structures in the distance.
Palmdale at last!
"Old Man Waggoner stood on
his store porch.
'No,' he said, 'this is Citrus


Center. It is too late to make Palm-
dale torught.' He opened the gate
alongside his store and waved
us into the Citrus Center Camp
Ground Trailer Park, which was
just an open field. As we rolled
through the gate, I heard a terrible
noise and felt an awful jolt. I did
not call attention to it then and we
went on in, bedded down for the
night as usual, in out tent and on
our cots.

A technical committee was

are proud to be the major point of
entry to higher education in the
state for over 800,000 students
each year," said Community
Colleges Chancellor David Arm-
strong. "Thanks to the support of
our state's leaders and the Legis-
lature, record funding increases
(more than 41 percent) over the
past 10 years are providing in-
creased access, and a passport to
the American Dream for students
who need to get a high-quality,
affordable education- close to
home."
Making postsecondary oppor-
tunities even more accessible for
those pursuing higher education
is an important goal for commu-
nity colleges. Florida's Commu-


.TALLAHASSEE This month,
Florida's Community College Sys-
tem celebrated its 50th anniver-
sary. Since 1957. the Community
College System bas been provide.
ing Floridians increased access
to postsecondary education and
workforce training opportuni.
ties. A celebration commemo-
rating this impressive milestone
was held earlier this month and
attended by Lt. Governor Jeff
Kottkamp, an Edison Community
College alumnus, among others.
"Governor Crist and Icon-
gratulate Florida's Community
College System on 50 years of
excellence in education said
Lt. Governor Kottkamp. "As a
graduate of one of Florida's out.
standing community colleges, I
experienced firsthand the world-
class academic programs that
support and strengthen Florida's
economic growth and develop-
ment by expanding access to
higher education, preparing stu-
dents to enter the state university
system and providing workforce
education programs to meet the
evolving needs of local commu-
nities."
During the past 50 years, Flor-
ida's Community College System
has made a number of notable
accomplishments. Some high
lights of these accomplishments
include:


product as a discount home
health care service ";to provide
referrals for homemaker and
companion services and custo-
dial care." Their referal services
were sold to approximately 44
elderly Floridians, most in their
80's or 90's. Several were dis-
abled and suffered from dimin-
ishing mental capacity, and
some already had home medi-
cal care coverage, even though
the Home Care membership
plan's application required that
tohesopurchasi d acnduom r nboe
be blind, deaf, or wheelchair-
bound, and that the Home Care
membership plan not replace
any existing insurance product.
The plans sold for between
$2, 475 and $5, 040 and offered
a three-payment option plan
that amounted to a 25-percent
interest charge for premium fi-
nancing, and the two collected
at least $192, 700. The investi-
gation began after victims com-
plained that they were unable
to get referals or services. The
department's Division of Agent
and Agency Services' Bureau
of Investigation conducted the
investigation, and the depart-
ment's Division of Legal Servic-
es issued administrative com-
plaints in June 2006. Following
eargontested dmministeal w
judge called for the 24-month
suspension for both agents.


TALLAHASSEE--Florida
Chief Financial Officer Alex
Sink announced that the li-
censes of two Sarasota insur-
ance agents have been sus-
pended for making 'false and
worthless promises' to more
than 40J elderly Floridians who
thought they were buying a
home health care services plan
but paid nearly 5200,000 for ac-
cess to providers and never re-
ceived any services. One of the
victims was a 96-year-old blind

wMi hael D. Carll 49 and
James W. Crain, Jr. 41, both of
International Life and Health
in Sarasota, had their licenses
and eligibility for licensure as
insurance agents in the state
of Florida suspended for a pe-
riod of 24 months. The two also
sold insurance through several
other Florida corporations, all
of which were located at 2577
Stickney Point Road, Suite 315B
in Sarasota. They cannot ap-
ply for reinstatement of their
licenses even after the suspen-
sion period until full restitution
has been made.
'It is cruel to sell senior citi-
zens on expensive false prom-
ises that will not provide the
services they need, said CFO
Sink, who oversees the depart-
ment. 'Ifn they failwt pa eb ek

their licenses back."
