OUA issues
boil water notice
Okeechobee Utility Author-
ity (OUA) issued a precaution-
ary boil water notice Wednes-
day afternoon for customers
in the area bounded by S.R. 70
on the north, S.W. 32nd Street
on the south, Eagle Bay Drive
on the west and S.E. Second
Avenue on the east. The utility
advises that all water used for
drinking or cooking be heated
to a rolling boil for one min-
ute.
It is hoped that the notice
can be canceled by Friday af-
ternoon. Before a boil water
notice can be cancelled the
water must test clean for two
consecutive days.
According to an OUA
spokesman, work at a con-
struction site caused the water
pressure in the affected area
to drop. The lowered pressure
stirred up sediments in the
water. The utility is in the pro-
cess of flushing sediment out
of the lines.
Anyone having questions
is asked to call the OUA water
plant at 763-3239, the mainte-
nance barn at 467-1599 or the
OUA office at 763-9460.

Suspected grow house raided


Pot plants had
estimated value
of over $500,000

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Two men are being held in the
Okeechobee County Jail under a
bond of over $1 million each for
their alleged connection with an
marijuana grow house raided
earlier this week in Fort Drum by
the Narcotics Task Force.
Arrested Tuesday, Oct. 9,
were Andres L. Sanchez, 32,
S.W. 67"' St., Miami, and Mario
Hernandez, 42, N.E. Third Drive,
Okeechobee. Both men were
charged with the felonies of traf-
ficking in marijuana, possession
of marijuana with intent to sell


and the cultivation of marijuana.
Both were also charged with the
misdemeanor of possession of
drug paraphernalia.
Bond was set at $1,105,000
for each man.
Records at the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
indicate that 145 marijuana plants
were seized at the reported grow
house on Northeast Third Drive
by task force members. The to-
tal weight of the plants was 462
pounds, said OCSO Lieutenant
Billy Markham. He added that
the plants had an average height
of 3 to 8 feet.
Detective Captain Dale
LaFlam said members of the
task force also found 23 seedling
pot plants.
He estimated that the plants
had a street value of $585,000


per harvest. Each plant, he said,
can be harvested up to four
times which would then boost
the total estimated street value of
the plants to over $2.3 million.
Capt. LaFlam said a search
warrant was executed on the
property Tuesday and that the
plants were found in two sepa-
rate buildings on the property.
Sanchez is the listed property
owner. Besides the two build-
ings, there is also a single-wide
mobile home on the property
that Sanchez was renting out to
Hernandez.
The majority "of the plants
were found in a 45- x 60-foot
metal building. More plants were
also found in a small 20- x 20-
foot termite-ridden man-made
shed.

The City Code Enforcement
Board met on Tuesday, Oct. 9,
where they heard a rather con-
fusing case dealing with neigh-
boring property owners.

The City Code Enforcement
Board heard two cases regard-

The first permit issue dealt

According to Mr. Sterling,
Mr. Sweat was cited due to him
placing a portion of concrete
that was broken up on the
neighboring property which

Red Cross offers many services to community


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The American Red Cross
offers many services to
Okeechobee County on a daily
basis. While one task of the Red
Cross is to assist citizens during
natural disasters, they do much
more for the community than
some realize.
During the Okeechobee
Chamber of Commerce gen-
eral membership meeting on
Wednesday, Oct. 10, Debbie
Riddle spoke of some of the
additional services that they of-
fer to Okeechobee County as
their local American Red Cross
branch.
The Okeechobee branch will
be celebrating their 90"' year


as a chartered American Red
Cross chapter in February 2008.
Throughout that time, many
services have added over the
years.
The American Red Cross
coordinates with the local law
enforcement and fire protection
services to respond to every fire
in the entire county. The prima-
ry goal of the Red Cross during
a fire is to provide food, shelter
and clothing. They also provide
replacement glasses, medica-
tions and many more services.
Shelter is one form of as-
sistance where the Red Cross
helps the family find a rental
apartment and helps them
with the first months rent and
security. They provide things
such as linens, utensils, di-


nette sets, supplies for infants
including formula and cribs,
and there have even been occa-
sions where they have replaced
people's tools when they were
necessary for the individual to
work.
The Red Cross also offers
health and safety classes in-
cluding first aid classes and
CPR for adults, children and
infants every month. Accord-
ing to Mrs. Riddle, these classes
have been full all summer long.
They make these classes avail-
able to the working individuals
by holding them in the evenings
and on Saturdays.
They also provide self study
programs concerning HIV/AIDS
and Blood Bourne Pathogens.
The cost of the health and


safety classes is the only form
of income that the Red Cross
receives outside of donations.
They are not funded by the state
or government funds.
Disaster preparedness class-
es are offered at no charge.
More than one million
Americans volunteer with the
American Red Cross to serve
their communities every year.
Through the Red Cross they
help people in emergencies;
teach first aid classes; train life-
guards and water safety instruc-
tors; and perform many other
functions that help ensure com-
munities are a safe place for ev-
eryone.
The Red Cross is also a

Crist signs measure reinstating no-fault car insurance


By Brent Kallestad
Associated Press Writer
TALLAHASSEE (AP) -- Florida's
no-fault auto insurance system to
protect motorists from being sued
in most cases after an accident
will return Jan. 1 under a bill Gov.
Charlie Crist signed Thursday.
The new law also requires driv-
ers to carry $10,000 of personal
injury protection coverage. That
requirement had been the law in
Florida since the early 1970s until
it expired Oct. 1.
The Legislature passed the
new bill (HB 13C) last Friday in a
special session.
"They made a good law an
even better law by helping reduce
opportunities for fraud," Crist said
at a signing ceremony.

The metal building, said OCSO
Detective Lieutenant John Rho-
den, had been divided which es-
sentialy transformed the single-
story building into two stories.
The second floor, he added, was
being prepared to grow more
marijuana.
Capt. LaFlam went on to say
Florida Power & Light is investi-
gating the possible theft of elec-
tricity by the two men.
"In each and every grow house
we've found they are manipulat-
ing the electricity," he said.

told that the property adjacent to
his was a future city right of way
or city road.
Mr. Sweat said he then asked
Mr. Robertson if he could go
ahead and clean the entire area
of concrete due to only about ten
feet of the concrete being on his
property. According to Mr. Sweat
he was given verbal permission
from Mr. Robertson to break up
all the concrete.
It is now known that the prop-
erty that was thought to be city
property is owned by James Davis
who obtained the land from his
father-n-law, Leonard McCann,
who owned the property at the
time the concrete was broken up
and placed in a pile on the prop-
erty.
Several board members ex-
pressed their concern with why

Mr. Santibanez on May, 31.
According to Code Enforce-
ment Officer Fred Sterling's re-
cords, on June 18, the property
owners were informed by the city
engineer Oscar Bermudez that
the structure needed to be taken
down.
This issue was postponed from
the previous Code Board meet-
ing where the property owner
was advised to either remove the
building or provide engineered
drawings in order to obtain a per-
mit.


The new bill also:
*Requires automobile insur-
ers to notify policyholders who
do not already have PIP coverage
by Nov. 15 that they must obtain
coverage by Jan. 1.
*Authorizes the attorney gen-
eral and the Office of Insurance
Regulation to take action against
insurers who demonstrate a pat-
tern of not paying valid claims.
* Streamlines the legal process
for disputes by requiring all PIP
claims related to a single provider
for the same injured person be
joined in a single lawsuit.
*Reserves $5,000 worth of
benefits for physicians who pro-
vide emergency services or inpa-
tient hospital care.
*Requires health care provid-
ers demonstrate certain qualifi-

The OCSO captain said it is
estimated that each marijuana
plant will yield one pound of pot.
This, he added, is a conservative
estimate.
"Some of the plants were over
7- to 8-feet tall and up to 5-feet
around, so they could possibly


Mr. Sweat was being cited instead
of the owner of the property lit-
tered with the concrete. There
was some confusion in the begin-
ning as the board was unsure on
whose land the actual violation
was occurring.
Attorney John Cassels spoke
on behalf of Mr. Davis and Mr. Mc-
Cann explaining to the board that,
"the reason that Mr. Sweat has
been cited here is at the request
of Mr. McCann and Mr. Davis,
because it is our belief and actu-
ally worn out by the testimony of
Mr. Sweat, that material from his
property in the form of concrete
was broken up and pushed onto
property owned by Mr. Davis,
originally Mr. McCann, which is in
violation of the (city) code."
Board members indicated
they were confused as to why the
property owner was not also cited
due to the condition of the prop-
erty. According to testimony by
Mr. Davis about estimates he had
taken, there are approximately 64


According to testimony from
Mr. Santibanez, who was trans-
lated to the board by his daugh-
ter, while attempting to obtain the
permit they were told by city staff
that they did not need a permit
for an animal structure within the
city, so he stopped pursuing the
permit process.
Mr. Sterling presented an in-
spection report from the City
Building Inspector Raymond
Schaub stating the structure is not
conforming to the city's building
codes.
According to the Mr. Bermu-
dez, the structure is not safe and
could pose a danger in the event
of any strong winds or potential


cations before they receive PIP
reimbursements.
Some large car insurance com-
panies pushed. for the system's
demise, flooding lawmakers with
e-mails, letters and phone calls
saying it was rife with fraudulent
claims for faked injuries.
"The Legislature did not suc-
cumb to the special interests, in
fact didn't even flinch," said Sen.
Bill Posey, R-Rockledge, the lead
Senate sponsor on the measure.
"There is not one thing in this bill
that is not consumer friendly."
Lawmakers actually added
some new, tougher anti-fraud
measures as well.
Hospitals and other medical
providers were concerned that
without the coverage require-
ment, they would have been left

Normally, he continued, a
marijuana plant matures every 90
days.
"Consequently, these could
have been very close to maturity,"
he said.
Light was kept on the plants
seven days a week, 24 hours a day
so that they would grow and pro-
duce faster, said Capt. LaFlam.
Lt. Rhoden stated that water-
cooled air conditioning units were
also found during the search.
OCSO arrest affidavits indicate
that grow lights and ballasts were
found in the buildings. The bal-
lasts are no different than those
used in fluorescent lighting ex-


dump truck loads of concrete on
the site.
This fact alluded that they
were insinuating that additional
concrete, not from the two sites
had been placed on Mr. Davis'
property.
Chairman Mack Worley stated
that "this is more of an issue be-
tween the two land owners than
a code enforcement issue."
In response to the insinua-
tions of Mr. Sweat placing addi-
tional concrete on the property
he stated that he did not place any
additional concrete on the neigh-
boring property besides about
ten feet of concrete that was on
his property.
The board as a whole seemed
to realize that the issue at hand
was not really pertaining to the
actual citation at hand. Mr. Cas-
sels requested that the Chairman
ask Mr. Sweat while he was under
oath if he had brought any other
material in from another site onto
Mr. Davis' property.


hurricanes.
The board voted to impose a
$20 per day fine beginning 30 days
after receipt of the notice in order
to give the city and the applicant
some time to try to remedy the
situation and misgivings of infor-
mation. Board members Marsha
Montesi and Rennae Sweda voted
against the motion which carried
with the votes of board members
Bea Castorina, Jamie Gamiotea,
Frank Irby and Penny Revels.
The second case involving
the lack of permit on a structure
involved an addition to the prop-
erty located at 209 N.W Tenth

care costs for crash victims who
don't have health insurance.
But there could still be some
misunderstanding among motor-
ists about their coverage, since
they aren't forced to have the
coverage between now and Jan.
1. Until then, any driver involved
in an accident who doesn't have
coverage could be sued to deter-
mine who is at fault and respon-
sible for damages.
Many drivers, however, will
continue to have the coverage in
the interim because it is in their
current policies. That coverage
would still cover injuries, but
won't shield them from a lawsuit
if they are in an accident with a
driver without personal injury
protection.


cept that they are much larger.
The ballasts regulate the flow of
electricity, and stores electricity in
order to keep a consistent flow
of power to the lights. Any type
of surge or drop in power could
disrupt the lighting which could
then alter the growing pattern of
the plant.
With Tuesday evening's opera-
tion, the task force has now closed
down five actual indoor cultiva-
tion operations in Okeechobee
County this year.
Capt. LaFlam said due to
the amount of marijuana plants
seized, the case will likely be
turned over to the Drug Enforce-
ment Administration (DEA).


Mr. Sweat simply stated, "No
sir."
Due to the complexity of the
case, the board was unsure of
how to proceed and how the
property owner would be found
in compliance. They were in-
structed by the city attorney that
they could impose a one time fine
for the code violation.
Board member Marsha Monte-
si made a motion to find Mr. Sweat
not in compliance and fined him
$25 plus any administrative fees.
The motion was seconded by
Penny Revels. Board members
Frank Irby and Rennae Sweda
voted against the motion which
passed with the majority vote of
Montesi, Revels, Jamie Gamiotea
and Bea Castorina who voted for
the motion.

Fugitive captured in New York City1


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PALM BEACH COUNTY -- After
a six-month manhunt, the search
for Andre Williams, an escapee
from the West County Detention
Center in Belle Glade, ended in
New York City Friday, Sept. 28
The New York Police Depart-
ment (NYPD) caught up with
Williams in the Bronx, a borough
of New York City, said the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO).
When detectives attempted to
arrest the fugitive, he ran Detec-
tives gave chase throughout the
city.
Once captured in the Bronx,
the fugitive was handed -more
charges; two felony counts of bat-
tery on a law enforcement officer
and one felony count of dealing in


narcotics, according to PBSO De-
tective Sergeant Trevor Cayson.
Williams was held in the West
County Detention Center facing
charges of attempted murder,
aggravated battery, and robbery
with a firearm. He escaped in
March and detectives had been
tracking him ever since.
"We were working with the
NYPD prior to the capture be-
cause the inmate had ties to New
York," Detective Sgt. Cayson said.
"Just from his past history, we
knew he had resided there at one
point in his life."
The 39-year old inmate, who
is also known as Lincoln Wallace,
escaped the detention center af-
ter managing to slip away from a
recreation area, according to Paul
Miller, spokesman for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office.


Then he tied bed sheets together
and threw them up to the top of
the building wall, officials said,
and escaped the prison.
Investigators said that Williams
climbed up the wall, through the
razor wire, and then worked his
way down another roof before
jumping down to the ground.
There was no blood detected, a
surprise considering the fact that
the razor wire was sharp, inves-
tigators said. Detectives said that
the inmate was last seen headed
toward South Bay, traveling south
along the Lake Okeechobee le-
vee.
That was six months ago.
"Just because we knew he had
ties to New York, we had a feel-
ing that he would eventually try
to get back up there," Detective
Sgt. Cayson said. According to


Detective Joseph D. Scarso, the
PBSO had been working with the
NYPD on this investigation since
the fugitive's escape.
In addition to the charges that
the fugitive faces in New York and
the original charges, Williams
now faces charges of escape
from the PBSO. He is being held
in New York awaiting extradition
to Palm Beach County.
He was in New York court on
Oct. 4Beach county for the nar-
cotics and battery charges that he
faces. No bond was set because
of the hold for extradition, ac-
cording to Detective Scarso.
"Based on these charges, the
suspect could be facing a sub-
stantial amount of time in prison,"
Det. Scarso said. "But it won't fully
be known until he returns to Palm
Beach County.".


South Bay leaders fire city manager

SOUTH BAY -- South Bay city
leaders voted to terminate City
Manager Tony Smith during their
Oct. 2 commission meeting.
While no specific details about
the termination were made avail-
able during the meeting, the may-
or said that Mr. Smith's health is-

decision.
Tony Smith had served as city
manager since Nov. 2003. He was


not in attendance at the meeting
when the issue of his termination
was brought up.
Commissioner John Wilson
made the motion to terminate,
with Commissioner Shirley Walk-

The final vote was 3-to-1, with
Commissioner Joe Kyles op-
posed.
After the vote, Commissioners
Wilson and Walker-Turner remain
tight-lipped about their decision
to cancel the city's contract with
Mr. Smith.

PALM BEACH - Florida High-
way Patrol officials say that a rain-
slicked road last Saturday and poor
tires may have been responsible for
causing a wreck that left a Clewis-
ton man dead.
The accident happened at about
6 a.m. that day, just south of the
Hendry County line in Palm Beach
County.
According to Lt. Tim Frith, with
Palm Beach FHP office, the man,
David Eaves Jr., 40, of Clewiston,
was on his way to work on U.S. 27
when he veered off the roadway on
the left shoulder.
The vehicle, a 2004 Nissan
. pickup, overturned and the driver,
who officials say was not wearing
his seatbelt at the time, was ejected
from the vehicle.


Emergency workers were un-
able to help the man, who was
pronounced dead shortly after the
call arrived.
"Unfortunately, it occurs very of-
ten," Lt. Frith said of the fact that the
driver was not properly secured in
his vehicle during the accident.
The officials said that the stretch
of road has proven deadly in the
past, mostly because of the thick
morning fog, but that has since ta-
pered off.
This recent accident may have
been the result of the poor condi-
tion of the tires that were mounted
on the vehicle, the official said.
"He had just left home, was
on his way to work," Lt. Frith said.
"This was just a very unfortunate
single vehicle accident."

space permits.
TRASH: Does anybody know who is responsible for picking up
the trash on Park Street? The trash cans in front of some of these stores
are overflowing and smell beyond belief.

LAKE LEVEL: I don't know where they think that the lake has
got up to 10 feet. If it was up that high it would be a lot higher un-
der that pier. Somebody is not measuring good, at least not here in
Okeechobee. It isn't up 10 feet and there is plenty of water out in these
canals and rivers and all of this, they should just open up the gates a
little and let it into the lake. Editor's note: The lake level is given
in feet above sea level.

NEED A LIGHT: We need a red light down here at the end of
Cemetery Road and 441. I have called several people and they say that
they don't have anything to do with it and don't know anything about
it. Editor's note: Since U.S. 441 is a state highway, requests for
a traffic light should go to the Florida Department of Trans-
portation. The District Traffic Operations Offices respond to
written letters from the public, civic organizations, business-
es, etc. requesting the need for a traffic signal to be installed
or modified. In some cases, when the request involves private
properties rather than public streets, it may be necessary for
either the developer or property owner to hire a consultant
to conduct the traffic signal study which must be submitted
to the appropriate district for review. For additional infor-
mation, email Gail.Holley@dot.state.fi.us or write to Florida
Department of Transportation, State Traffic Engineering and
Operations Office, 605 Suwannee Street MS 90, Tallahassee,
Florida 32399-0450

TWO MONDAYS: I would like to know when Monday became the
Ninth, is my calendar wrong? Editor's note: Due to human error,
the Tuhesday, Oct. 9 edition of the newspaper had "Monday"
on page one. We regret the error and any inconvenience it
may have caused.

GOOD LUCK, GEORGE: I would like to wish Mr. Long the best of
luck in Bartow. I only hope that our new county administrator will be
as good of an asset to our county as Mr. Long was. Our new county
administrator will need all the luck and support he or she can get.

RESPONSIBILITY: Most responsible people would have carried
some type of insurance to cover themselves even if the State didn't re-
quire it. The thing that bothers me is, what happens with these people
that refuse to have insurance or even have a valid drivers license? They
don't care. They go out and kill people and cause a lot of property
damage and then say sue me I don't have anything. When they get ar-
rested they pay a fine and go out and do it again. I hope our Legislators
can come up with a better plan than what we had. The only winners in
our last plan were the Insurance companies and Attorneys. The losers
were the law-abiding citizens of this state and the Medical Profession.
Either way the law abiding citizens paid. The people that continue to
break our laws, will still do so and the rest of us will suffer.

TAXES: Love that comment on taxes. Welcome to Okeechobee, if
they can't get you one way, they will get you some other way.

Where have the
buffalo gone?
I often walk our back pasture
where there are several acres of pe-
can trees and I seek solace in this
somewhat secluded place. There
is a measure of peace and tranquil-
ity to be found, but I recognize the
absence of some things and it sad-
dens me. The presence of scamper-
ing rabbits and squirrels and other
creatures often seen in open fields
are not visible.
In the distance the sound of loud
automobiles squealing tires and car
horns pierce the air. I am reminded
of how much civilization has cost


us and how much we have lost
throughout the years.
I am made to reflect on a letter
written six years before the War
Between the States by an Indian
Chief named "Seattle." He wrote it
to President Franklin Pierce in 1855.
How true his words ring today.
Where are the buffalo
gone?
"The great chief in Washington
sends word that he wishes to buy
our land. How can you buy or sell
the sky or the warmth of the land?
The very idea is strange to us!
"We do not own the freshness
of the air or the sparkle of the water.
How can you buy them from us?

my people.
"We know that you do not un-
derstand our ways; one portion
of the land is the same to you as
the next. You are a stranger who
comes in the night and takes from
the land what you want. The earth
is not your brother, but your enemy
and when you have conquered it,
you move on. You leave your fa-
thers graves and your children's
birthrights are forgotten.
"There is no quiet place in your
cities, no place to hear the leaves of
spring of the rustle of insect wings.
What is there to the life if a man
cannot hear the lovely cry of the
whippoorwill or the arguments of
the frogs around the pond at night?


"Continue to contaminate your
bed and you will one night suf-
focate in your own waste. When
the buffalo are all slaughtered, the
wild horses all tamed and the se-
cret corners of the forests are heavy
with the scent of many men and
the views of the ripe hills blotted by
talking wires, what then?
"Where is the eagle gone?
Where is the buffalo gone? And
what is to say goodbye to the swift
and the hunt, the end of living and
the beginning of mere survival?"
Chief Seattle, 1855.

Dear Abby


Boy'


pursuit


more than a crush


* DEAR ABBY: I am 14 and in
high school. There's this boy, "Jon,"
who has liked me for a long time.
Recently a friend of his asked me
if I'd ever consider being Jon's girl-
friend. I told him no. I said I liked
Jon, just not in that way. Obviously,
the friend told Jon.
My problem is Jon is now act-
ing obsessive toward me. He calls
me almost every day telling me he
WILL make me his girlfriend some-
day.
Abby, I am friends with Jon's
ex-girlfriend, "Sara," and that's one
reason I said no. The second rea-
son is that Sara confided in me that
she broke up with Jon because he
had begun to abuse her. The third
is that I'm just not interested.
Jon follows me around the
school when he thinks I don't
know. He has even followed me
home. I don't know what to do
about this, so please print my letter.
- Being Stalked In Vancouver,
B.C.
DEAR BEING STALKED: You
cannot be "friends" with Jon, be-
cause he doesn't regard you in that
way. The next time he calls, tell him
he must stop calling, and that you
know he has been following you,
and that must stop, too. Then in-
form your parents what's been go-
ing on, and let them tell Jon's par-
ents the attention you're receiving
from their son is unwanted.
Years ago, people used to
think that the behavior you have
described was just part of young
love. Since the early '90s, howev-
er, members of law enforcement
and the mental health community
have come to realize that individu-
als who behave the way Jon does
may be mentally unbalanced. In
your case, this may be just a teen-
age crush, but if Jon doesn't leave
you alone, your family may have to
involve the police.

* DEAR ABBY: My husband
and I celebrated our 50th anniversa-
ry a few weeks ago. Last spring we
jokingly said that we would have to
throw the party for ourselves be-


cause no one else would. We took
all kids, spouses and grandkids on
a cruise over the summer because
that's when the kids were out of
school.
Well, our big day arrived. One
daughter sent flowers, another
bought a ham - for me to cook.
One son called to say "Happy An-
niversary." The other son forgot.
I have been so depressed ever
since that I break down in tears
several times a day. Not one of our
children thought our 50th was im-
portant enough to contact the sib-
lings and say, "Hey, let's take Mom
and Dad out to dinner on this spe-
cial occasion." Am I wrong to feel
hurt? How can I get beyond this? -
Hurt Beyond Words In Texas
DEAR HURT BEYOND
WORDS: Your children may have
been under the impression that the
cruise you took them on during the
summer was all the celebration
you had in mind. If so, then your
problem is not one of neglect; it
was one of poor communication.
The way to move beyond this
is to dry your tears and resolve that
you and your husband will sched-
ule a romantic getaway for just the
two of you. That way there will be
no disappointments.

happy Eid al-Fitr, one and all!

The Last Word in Astrology


By Eugenia Last
ARIES (March 21-April 19): A trip
or even attending a weekend conference/
tradeshow will give you the break you
need and put you in contact with interest-
ing people. A change in your current di-
rection will be a rewarding experience.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Get
whatever is bothering you off your chest.
Love is on the rise and you should be able
to make a commitment regarding your
future. A change regarding an older or
younger relative may be taxing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Finish
what you start before you take off and
do your own thing. Live up to a promise
made or you will never hear the end of it.
You'll be surprised at how easy it will be to
get things done if you stop complaining.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): Travel,
entertainment and love are all in a high
cycle, so stop procrastinating and start
having some fun. Take the day off to do
the things you enjoy with the people you
care most about.


LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Say as little
as possible. Take action and do things that
will make an impression rather than mak-
ing idle promises. Adding to the comfort
of your home will make your friends and
family happy.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Things
are looking good as long as you stay true
to yourself and to the ones you love. A trip
or talk with people you are involved with
will help clear up any troubling matter.
Changes you make will ease the tension.
UBRA (Sept 23-Oct. 22): Don't get
angry, get moving. There is money to be
made. It will be your own laziness that will
make you lose out. This is not the time to
take a walit-and-see attitude. Do your duty
and you will feel much better in the end.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): If you
believe in what you are trying to do, be
brave and follow through. It won't cost
nearly as much as you think if you do the
groundwork yourself. Love is on the rise
so talk about your dreams and you will get
the support you need.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21):
It's what you do for others that will count.


Be honest with yourself and reevaluate
your past. Your need to win may have
caused some problems and now itis time
to clear the air.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
You can push a deal through, make a
professional decision or change and final-
ize contracts, settlements or a pending
money matter. Your fortitude will be rec-
ognized by others, putting you in a posi-
tion to win. Decisions can be made and
change initiated.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Don't
let your emotions get the better of you. If
you blurt out how you feel, you will offend
someone you care about. Put your efforts
into formulating what you want to do but
not initiating such actions just yet.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You
can figure out a lot of things today that
have to do with money, legal or health is-
sues. Making changes to your home will
pay off or actually moving from one place
to another will lift your spirits. Love is on
the rise.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


Rocking Whale
Like a panda bear or a zebra, an orca (or "killer
whale") is easy to recognize by its distinctive black-
and-white markings. Here's a unique do-it-yourself
project that can add this favorite to your own child's
(or grandchild's) menagerie for less than $50.
The secret is that the entire project is made from
just one 4-by-8 sheet of plywood. Laminated ply-
wood construction makes it inexpensive, stronger
than dimensional lumber and much easier to make.
Simply trace the pieces onto plywood, cut out and
laminate together with glue and clamps. To finish,
sand, paint and assemble with screws and glue.
The rocking whale measures 43 inches long by 16
inches wide by 25 inches tall.
Rocking Whale plan (No. 913)... $9.95
Kids' Rockers Package (No. C73)
Four other projects. . . $24.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects)... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)
To order, circle item(s), Please be sure to
clip & send w/ check to: include your name,
U-Bild Features address and the name of
3800 Oceanic Dr., Ste. 107 this newspaper. Allow
Oceanside, CA 92056 1-2 weeks for delivery.

Okeechobee News/Teresa Mataushek
South Elementary Student, Kyle Padgett, 5, was cool and collected
learning how to use the Forestry foam hose, with the help of Brian
Cross of the Division of Forestry, during Fire Safety Week.


Brian Cross along with other members of the Division of Forestry
brought equipment down to South Elementary, to teach students about
fire safety. Student, Brenden Everhart got to give it a try.




Checking your smoke



alarms could save your life


It's Fire Prevention Month so what
better time to check your smoke
alarms ensuring the safety of your
home and loved ones. According
to the National Fire Protection As-
sociation (NFPA), in one-quarter of
the reported fires in homes equipped
with smoke alarms, the devices did
not work. Homes without working
smoke alarms now out number those
with no smoke alarms.
A smoke alarm should be placed
outside of every sleeping area, as
well as on every level of your home.
Check your smoke alarm at least once
a month by pressing the test button
until you hear the audible sound. Per-
sons who are deaf or heard of hearing
should consider the installation of an
alarm that provides flashing lights, vi-
bration and/or sound.
Alarm units that are more than ten
years old should be replaced. If you


are not sure how old your alarm is, it
is probably a good idea to go ahead
and replace it. Monthly maintenance
of alarms should be performed ac-
cording to the manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Replace the batteries in your
smoke alarm at least once a year.
Installation should be made fol-
lowing the manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Wall mounted alarms should
be placed no less than four and no
more than twelve inches from the
ceiling. Homes with vaulted ceilings
should place the alarm at the high-
est point of the ceiling. Do not install
smoke alarms near windows, doors,
or ducts where drafts might interfere
with their operation.
For more information on smoke
alarm installation, maintenance and
facts, visit the National Fire Protection
Association website at www.nfpa.
org.

Holding their ears
Students and teachers at Central Elementary School hold their ears
at the sound of a fire engine siren. Zack Smith, left and Dave Harris,
right of Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue demonstrate fire fighting
equipment to the students on Monday Oct. 8 as part of Fire Safety
Week. The students also saw a puppet show on fire safety and got to
see an ambulance and observe how brush fires are put out.


Jerome Roundtree, 5, a student at South Elementary School, received
instructions on how to properly put out a fire with the Forestry foam
hose from Brian Cross of the Division of Forestry.


Megan Vickers, 6, a student at South Elementary, shows that she is a
pro with the Forestry hose, with the help of Brian Cross, of the Divi-
sion of Forestry on Oct. 11 at South Elementary School for Fire Safety
Week.
