No Community
Thanksgiving Dinner
at Grace Brethren
For the first time in many
years, there will be no cominu-
nity wide Thanksgiving Dinner
at Grace Brethren Church. The
church itself never sponsored
the dinner. The church just pro-
vided the dining room. A sepa-
rate organization called Grace
Ministries sponsored the event.
Apparently that organization
has ceased to exist. Grace
Brethren officials state that no
one has contacted them to use
their facility and no one seems
to know who is in charge of
Grace Ministries or if that orga-
nization is still in existence.

City approves hotel plan


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
A Hampton Inn appears to
be in Okeechobee's future. The
Okeechobee City Council unani-
mously approved the land use
change and first reading of the
rezoning of property concerning
changes to heavy commercial at
their meeting on Tuesday, Nov.
6.
The council unanimously
approved this 6.27-acre devel-
opment located to the east of
the U.S. Post Office. The pro-


posed development will include
a Hampton Inn with 85 hotel
rooms. The site will also feature
out-parcels available for a restau-
rant, bank and a two-story build-
ing for retail spaces.
According to their applica-
tion, Kite Properties, LLC, is a
hospitality developer located in
Vero Beach. Their subsidiary,
Okeechobee SR70 Holdings,
LLC, has purchased the property
with a goal of developing a suc-
cessful project while maintaining
the integrity of the community


and increasing employment and
business opportunities for local
residents.
The current use of the proper-
ty is for a single family residence
and a stable, which would be
demolished. According to the
applicant they have already se-
cured a franchise agreement
with the Hampton Inn. They will
not only be developing the hotel,
they will also be the owners and
operators of the hotel as well.
The site requires a small
scale comprehensive plan map


amendment changing the future
land use from residential single
family to commercial for a por-
tion of the property. The prop-
erty is currently zoned partially
residential multifamily and heavy
commercial. They are asking for
a zoning change from residential
multifamily to make the property
completely heavy commercial.
"Personally I am glad to see
some development on the east
side," Councilman Dowling
Watford stated. "I think it will be
good for that area."


Mayor Kirk elaborated to the
same issue stating that he thinks
it is a good fit here and he didn't
see why it shouldn't go in.
The following uses would be
permitted within a heavy com-
mercial district: professional
office, business office, medical
office; retail service, retail store
including outdoor display of
merchandise; restaurant, cafe;
personal service; dry cleaner,
laundry; funeral home; hotel,
motel; private club, nightclub;

By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee City Coun-
cil approved a proposed Legis-
lative Project Grant Agreement
for the Okeechobee Commerce
Center retention installation at
their Tuesday, Nov. 6, meeting.
The grant was awarded

ment of Environmental Protec-
tion (DEP), totals $150,000 and


will be used to continue con-

project. This grant will contin-
ue work on Lake 2 and 3 which
will be one of the last projects

According to City Adminis-
trator Brian Whitehall, the con-
struction of the second lake is
crucial to the overall drainage +
system of the Commerce Park.

The council as a whole had very

the development in contrast to
the last time this proposed devel-

rezoning for .57 acre property lo-

current zoning is light commer-

4 OPINION Okeechobee News, Thursday, November 8, 2007


Speak Out
Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post
it anytime at the Okeechobee issues forum at http://www.
newszapforums.com/forum58. It is a hometown forum so
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.
PHONE BOOKS: Could someone please tell mewhywe are getting
AT&T phone books? We don't even have AT&T here in Okeechobee.
What are you supposed to do with them when someone drops them
at your door step? Mine is going in the garbage.

SAFETY: Some years ago downtown a roof collapsed. Luckily is
was at night and no one was hurt but, it is going to happen again and
this time some one may get hurt. Okeechobee planning and develop-
ment can come to your home tell you it's not up to code fine you
even condemn it, but not a business where some one could get hurt
or killed.

NAMES: In response to the comment about a receptionist calling
a patient by his or her first name, it kind of depends. If I walk in the
door and the receptionist doesn't have a file sitting in front of her and
she welcomes me using my first name, I kind of feel welcome and
important enough that she remembered my first name. What I look
for more, is how pleasant and polite the staff is. I know dealing with
sick and usually grumpy patients all day long must be grueling but I
sure do appreciate the staff that can put that aside and be pleasant - no
matter what is going on.

RESPECT: In response to the caller who said young people don't
show proper respect, I make sure my children show respect and use
the Mrs., Miss or Mr. when speaking to adults. For friends of the family,
where it would seem too formal to use last names, we use "Miss" or
"Mr." and their first name. Such as "Miss Annie" or "Mr. Joe." I would
never allow my children to address them as "Annie" or "Joe." I have
noticed that the receptionist at my doctor's office does this -- she uses
"Miss" and my first name. Since I have been going there for years, I
find this a nice compromise.

STALKING: Regarding the stalking case, I understand cultural dif-
ferences -- buthow long has the individual lived in the United States?
Even with the different cultural background, I find it hard to believe
that it is OK for a grown man to try and pick up on young girls from
middle schools. If you live in Miami you can hardly walk down the
street with out Cuban-Americans making remarks to young girls. They
know that it is wrong. It's just that in a lot of cases they have no respect
for woman. And some of these men are in their 50's.

HOLIDAYS: I am so tired of people rushing the holidays. Hallow-
een is barely over and we should be looking forward to Thanksgiving,
not seeing Christmas decorations everywhere. Could they please wait
until after Thanksgiving to put out the Christmas stuff? Guess they are
worried we won't spend enough money if people wait until Decem-
ber to start their holiday shopping.

PARKING: I attended an awards program at my child's school the
other day and parked in the parking lot, where there were plenty of
visitor spots available. What I couldn't understand was why so many
other parents were parking on the grass or blocking the fire lanes so
they could be a few feet closer to the front door. I could understand
parking on the grass if the lot is full. But when there are plenty Of
open spots, it just doesn't seem right. Think about what your example
teaches your children.

- AARP DRIVING CLASS: Can someone tell me if there is an AARP
Driver Safety Course available in this area? Editor's note: Treasure
Island Baptist Church, 4209 Hwy 441 S.E., will sponsor an
AARP Driver Safety Course on Nov. 10 and 17 from 9 a.m. un-
til 1:30 p.m. The course is for ages 55 and up. There will be
a $10 tuition fee (check only) for information call Instructor

on physical fitness, health and
wellness.
Voss and other recruits also


received instruction from the
Coast Guard's core values -
honor, respect and devotion to
duty - and how to apply them
in their military performance
and personal conduct. Voss
will join 36,000 other men and
women who comprise Coast
Guard's force. Men and wom-
en train together from the first
day in the Coast Guard just as
they do aboard ships and shore
units throughout the world. To
reinforce the team concept,
Voss, and other recruits were
trained in preventing sexual
harassment, drug and alcohol
awareness, civil rights training
and the basics of the work-life
balance, as well as total qual-
ity management.
Voss is a 2006 graduate of
Okeechobee High School.


SEAL museum - One step

closer to national recognition


WASHINGTON -The move to
grant federal recognition for Fort
Pierce's Navy UDT-SEAL Museum
gained unanimous support from
the U.S. Senate late Wednesday,
moving it one step closer to be-
coming a national museum.
Sponsored by U.S. Rep. Tim
Mahoney and Sen. Bill Nelson,
the legislation designates the Fort
Pierce museum as the nation's
only official museum dedicated
to preserving the history of the
Navy SEALs, one of the U.S.. mil-
itary's most elite fighting forces.
The recognition will allow the
museum to qualify for federal
grants, increase its historical col-
lections and attract more recog-
nition.
"This will put a national spot-
light on the museum and help it
showcase its collections to thou-


sands more visitors," said Sena-
tor Nelson.
"We owe a debt of gratitude
to the Navy SEALs and their pre-
decessors. This bill will help the
museum tell these heroes' sto-
ries to a national audience," said
Congressman Mahoney.
Fort Pierce has long been rec-
ognized as the birthplace of the
SEALs, dating back to World War
II when the Navy trained thou-
sands of frogmen there in under-
water and combat demolition.
The beachside museum was
opened in 1985 and educates
visitors about the history and
exploits of naval special warfare
from WWII through today's Iraq
conflict and the nation's war on
terror.
The legislation now heads to
the president for his approval.

(ARA) - During the annual
election period of November
15 through December 31, 2007,
people are able to switch plans
or enroll in Medicare Part D pre-
scription drug coverage through
stand-alone plans or through
integrated medical and prescrip-
tion plans.
Medicare beneficiaries can re-
ceive prescription drug coverage
through stand-alone plans, called
Medicare Part D Prescription
Drug Plans (PDPs), or through
plans called Medicare Advantage
Part D (MAPD). PDPs supplement
Medicare coverage while MAPD
plans replace Medicare part A
and provide medical benefits and
prescription drug coverage.
Everyone with Medicare is eli-
gible to join a Medicare Part D or
MAPD plan, regardless of income,
health status or how much they


currently spend on prescription
medicines. There are two ways
a Medicare recipient can receive
Medicare Part D coverage:
* By enrolling in a Medicare
Prescription Drug Plan (PDP) that
covers prescription drugs only
and works in conjunction with
original Medicare
* Or, by enrolling in a Medi-
care Advantage Prescription
Drug Plan (MAPD) that covers
physician and hospital care and
prescriptions.
For more information about
the Medicare Advantage Plans,
other Medicare Health Plans, or
Medicare Prescription Drug Plans
available in your area, visit www.
medicare.gov on the Web or call
1-800-MEDICARE or (800) 633-
4227. TTY users should call (877)

Today

in History
By The Associated Press
Today is Thursday, Nov. 8, the
312th day of 2007. There are 53
days left in the year.
Today's Highlight in His-
tory:
On Nov. 8, 1923, Adolf Hit-
ler launched his first attempt at
seizing power with a failed coup
in Munich, Germany, that came
to be known as the "Beer-Hall
Putsch."
On this date:
In 1837, Mount Holyoke Fe-
male Seminary, a .college ex-
clusively for women, opened in
South Hadley, Mass.
In 1889, Montana became the
41st state.
In 1932, New York Gov. Frank-
lin D. Roosevelt defeated incum-
bent Herbert Hoover for the presi-
dency.
In 1933, President Franklin
Roosevelt created the Civil Works
Administration, designed to cre-
ate jobs for more than 4 million
unemployed.
In 1942, Operation Torch, re-
sulting in an Allied victory, began
i during World War II as U.S. and
British forces landed in French
North Africa.
In 1960, Massachusetts Sen.
John F. Kennedy defeated Vice
President Richard M. Nixon for
the presidency.
In 1966, Republican candi-
date Ronald Reagan was elected
governor of California, defeat-
ing Democratic incumbent Pat
Brown.
In 1966, Edward W Brooke,
R-Mass., became the first black
candidate to be elected to the U.S.
Senate by popular vote.
In 1987, 11 people were killed
when an Irish Republican Army
bomb exploded as crowds gath-
ered in Enniskillen, Northern Ire-
land, for a ceremony honoring
Britain's war dead.
In 1988, Vice President George
Bush won the presidential elec-
tion, defeating Massachusetts
Gov. Michael Dukakis.
Ten years ago: Chinese
engineers diverted the Yangtze
River to make way for the Three
Gorges Dam, the most ambitious
construction project in modern
China's history. Evander Holyfield
won the IBF heavyweight title in a
fierce fight against Michael Moor-
er in Las Vegas.
Five years ago: The U.N.
Security Council unanimously ap-
proved Resolution 1441, which
gave weapons -.inspectors the
muscle they needed to hunt for
illicit weapons in Iraq. President
Bush said the new resolution pre-
sented the Iraqi regime "with a
final test."
One year ago: After years
of defending his secretary of de-
fense, President Bush announced
Donald H. Rumsfeld's resignation
following the Democrats' triumph
in congressional elections; Bush
chose former CIA Director Rob-
ert Gates to succeed him. Israeli
shells killed 18 Palestinian civil-
ians in the northern Gaza town
of Beit Hanoun during an attack
targeting militants.
Today's Birthdays: Actress
June Havoc is 95. Actor Norman
Lloyd is 93. Jazz singer Chris Con-
nor is 80. Singer Patti Page is 80.

author (1905-1956).

YOURLIfPL1E, OIAL9 1


The Last Word in Astrology


By Eugenia Last
*ARIES (March 21-April 19):
Take action but stay calm. Getting
upset or angry will not get you the
results you want. Be direct but not
pushy and focus on what you can do
to improve your situation.
*TAURUS (April 20-May 20):
Choices must be made. Someone
will question you and this may cause
confusion. Try to stick to your original
plan and you will not make a mistake.
Action will be what counts so don't let
all the chaos slow down progress.
*GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
You'll find love in the strangest plac-
es. It will be easy to interest someone
with your dazzling conversation and
your spiffy way of putting yourself to-
gether. Your fun-loving, try-all, do-all
approach to life will attract an inter-
esting someone.
*CANCER (June 21-July 22):
You can write your own ticket today.
An emotional issue can be dealt with
and some social gains can be made
if you network. Take action and you
will get results.
*LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Don't
expect everyone to bend to your


whims. It's time to take another look
at your personal and residential situa-
tion and make the alterations that will
make your life better. A love problem
will crop up if you are not honest. Tell
all or face complaints.
*VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): If
someone at home complains, do
something about it. An opportunity to
sign up for a trip or something plea-
surable should help to alleviate the
stress you've been feeling. Stop be-
ing so hard on yourself.
*LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You'll
find it difficult to deal with emotional
matters. Someone you think you can
trust may not tell you everything, to
spare your feelings. Put some time
and effort into a hobby or something
you enjoy doing. It's time to move
on.
* SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
You can keep a secret but someone
you know probably can't, so don't
share your thoughts. The estimate
you receive about a repair job will es-
calate, costing more than you expect.
Renovations should be kept to a bare
minimum.
*SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21): No one will fully understand


what you are going through. Your
confusion, coupled with temptation
will leave you at odds. Don't instigate
change, Sit still for a moment and re-
juvenate.
*CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan.
'19): A new game plan can be put
into play. With your business savvy
and your ability to make money, you
have nothing to worry about and ev-
erything to gain with your own small
business or investing in something
with potential. Money and love are
heading your way.
*AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18):
You may have to speak on behalf of
others if you want to finish what you
start or close a deal. As long as you
are articulate and take care of every-
one involved, you will come out look-
ing like a hero. Moving forward isn't
hard if you follow proper procedure.
*PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20):
Whatever you've got your heart set
on, go after it wholeheartedly. You
can come out on top if you act fast
and follow through. Love is in the
picture if you pay proper attention to
someone you are attracted to.
� 2007 UNIVERSAL PRESS SYNDICATE


DEAR ABBY: "Anonymous in
Arizona" (Sept. 7) was wonder-
ing how to explain to her future
children that their father's brother
was born a girl, particularly in
childhood photos in which he ap-
pears as a girl. While most of your
reply was sound -- especially how
transgendered people are born
in the wrong body (which I wish
more people could understand)
- I disagree with your advice
about the photo albums.
As a transgendered man, I'd
be mortified if I knew a photo of
me in dresses and pigtails from
my youth was included in a fam-
ily album for my son to see. But I
also know many transpeoplewho
wouldn't mind at all. How we deal
with our background is a personal
and individual decision. Anony-
mous' brother-in-law "John"
should be allowed to have a say
in whether or not images of him
as a child should be included.
It would be reasonable for her
husband to approach his brother
privately and ask his feelings on
the issue. If John doesn't mind
childhood photos in an album,
then great. If he does, however,
then Anonymous should do her
best to find ones of her husband
only, or have the pictures cropped.
- Michigan Transguy
DEAR MICHIGAN TRANS-
GUY: Thank you for your authori-
tative response. Anonymous was
hesitant to discuss this sensitive is-
sue with her brother-in-law or any
other family member. Many read-
ers agreed with you that the wisest
course of action would be to talk
to John for his input. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: Although the
subject is "something that is never
mentioned," the writer's husband
needs to sit down with his brother
and discuss the matter. The fact
that John is transgendered ap-
pears to be the elephant in the
living room that no one wants to
discuss. Surely John has antici-
pated these things from early on
in his new life, and a psychiatrist

Close to Home


most likely prepared him for it
before he even had the gender
reassignment surgery. Ignoring it
and acting like he's some sort of
oddity that's not to be mentioned
is probably the worst thing that
could be done - for everyone,
including John. - San Jose,
Calif., Reader
DEAR ABBY: Anonymous
shouldn't be so sure that John
doesn't know she knows. Most -
spouses discuss their childhoods
with each other, and John prob-
ably assumes that his brother had
told her about his history.
At some point the children will
ask more questions, as will adults.
Most transpeople are open about
their gender, and Anonymous can
use the photo album as an oppor-
tunity to teach, as you stated, that
John was always male. People
need to hear this message, so
that they, too, can understand. As
with same-sex love, gender issues
should be discussed matter-of-
factly with children. - Libby In '
Atlanta
DEAR ABBY: To show respect
and acceptance, she should ask
John how he would handle such
a conversation with her child.
In addition, when her child asks
about the apparent discrepancy in
the photos, at what will inevitably
be the most inappropriate mo-
ment (i.e. Thanksgiving dinner),
she and John should be prepared
rather than exchanging awkward
glances. It takes communication
to keep the dynamics of a family
healthy. (Take it from someone
who has a few skeletons in the
closet!) - Jenny In Reno
DEAR ABBY: I'm also a trans-
man (born in a female body). It
was refreshing to read such a sen-
sible reply. Most often, we trans-
gendered folk are treated as freaks-
even though it has been proven
again and again that gender is
determined by what is between
your ears, not between your legs.
-- Mikhail in Grand Rapids

Gators begin

rebuilding

their roster,
By Mark Long
AP Sports Writer
GAINESVILLE (AP) -- Florida's
basketball facility got a make-
over following the team's sec-
ond consecutive national title.
A large glass case in the lobby
displays several trophies along
with signed balls and strands
of net. Nearby, monitors replay
highlight videos from the two
championship seasons. And the
practice court has large sections
of each Final Four floor hanging
on a wall.
Florida's roster endured even
more change.
Corey Brewer, Taurean Green,
Al Horford and Joakim Noah
jumped to the NBA, Lee Hum-
phrey and Chris Richard gradu-
ated, and the Gators were left
with youth, uncertainty and one
heck of a rebuilding project.
Now, coach Billy Donovan
*can only hope his overhauled
team turns out as well as that
,other renovation. The unranked
'Gators open the season Fri-
'day night against North Dakota
State.
"This is a tremendous learn-
ing experience for these kids
because of what's happened the
-last two years," Donovan said.
�"Sometimes young people come
in and think, 'I'm coming to Flor-
'ida and we're going to win be-
,ause it's Florida.' Well, winning
,is not a right of passage."
' Especially not after what the
,'Gators lost.
SHorford, Noah and Brewer
'were NBA lottery picks, Green
and Richard were second-round
selections, and Humphrey signed
to play overseas.
The six helped the Gators win
68 games the last two years, in-
cluding 18 in a row in the post-
season. They won back-to-back
Southeastern Conference tour-
naments and became the first
team in 15 years to repeat as na-
tional champs.
All that success helped Don-
ovan land a lucrative contract
with the NBA's Orlando Magic, a
'deal he sheepishly backed out of
a few days later.
. He returned to Gainesville to
rebuild his reputation and his
roster. Now, he has just nine
scholarship players a junior,
three sophomores and five fresh-
men.
Instead of having two of the
best big men in the country
Horford and Noah could shoot,
rebound, run the floor, play de-
fense, block shots and handle
the ball and several perimeter
players to complement them,
Donovan has an undersized, in-
experienced group that hopes to
camouflage its weaknesses with
pressing defense, up-tempo of-
fense and lots of 3-point shots.
"We have to look at what
we have to do to put ourselves
in position to win and what are
some of things that are going to
get us beat," Donovan said. "We
have to be able to define those
things for our guys. That's the
hardest part. You can talk about
defending, you can talk about
rebounding, you can talk about
being unselfish, but they have to
understand how that correlates
into helping you be successful."
