OUA considers more rate increases


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
If developers continue to default
on their obligations to Okeecho-
bee Utility Authority (OUA), the
utility's customers could see even
higher rate increases in the future.
That was the bad news rate con-
sultant Henry Thomas delivered
to the Tuesday, Oct. 13 meeting of
the OUA Board of Directors.
A few years ago, during the
boom times, several develop-
ers entered into agreements with
OUA to make yearly payments on
their capital connection charges to
guarantee wastewater capacity for


their proposed subdivisions. The
utility planned to use these yearly
payments to help finance expan-
sion of the wastewater treatment
plant, which was nearing capacity
at that time. Unfortunately, when
the boom went bust, many failed
to make payments last year, caus-
ing the utility to raise its rates six
percent to make up the differ-
ence.
Mr. Thomas presented what he
called "Not a very good picture."
"Debt coming on line without
the projected growth is the real
problem," Mr. Thomas said.
He presented financial pro-


4-H involvement: A great ride'


Pat Miller honored


with 4-H award


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
Former County Extension Of-
fice Director Pat Miller is a famil-
iar face at 4-H awards programs.
For the past 25 years, he has been
presenting awards to 4-H mem-
bers and community volunteers.
On Saturday he was on the receiv-
ing end of the program's highest
award.
Mr. Miller, who recently retired
from the county extension of-
fice, was honored with the 2009
Friend of 4-H Award at the 4-H
Awards Banquet on Oct. 10 in the
Okeechobee High School Cafete-
ria.
"It's been a great ride," said Pat
Miller. "It's been a wonderful 25
years." He added that he is very
proud of the 4-H members, lead-
ers and community volunteers


and especially proud of the staff
of the county office.
"The highest honor that
Okeechobee County 4-H bestows
is the "Okeechobee County Friend
of 4-H" Award," said Debbie Cle-
ments. "The award was first es-
tablished in 1989 and continues
to honor persons or organizations
that have performed exemplary
service to the Okeechobee 4-H
program. In the past, honorees
have been individuals, families,
businesses and governmental or-
ganizations that have gone above
and beyond to provide resources,
time and expertise to the 4-Hers
of Okeechobee County.
"Continuing in the established
tradition, this year's honoree has
distinguished himself as an invalu-
able contributor to the success of

through 2014 including projec-
tions of customers, operating ex-
penses and capital improvement
requirements and funding. In the
past financial projections counted
on infill of 100 water and 50 waste-
water connections per year. Mr.
Thomas based his calculations on
the more conservative figures of
50 water and 25 wastewater con-
nections per year from infill.
The rate consultant presented
three scenarios. The first assumed
that developers would pay their ob-
ligations to OUA and the projected
new connections would come on


line. According to this scenario,
the recently imposed 6 percent
rate increase would be sufficient
to cover most expenses for several
years. For the next four years after
the current fiscal year, water rates
would increase only one percent
a year. Wastewater rates would
not have to be increased at all in
the next four years. This scenario
would allow for expansion of
wastewater service to Treasure Is-
land without any increase in rates.
The second scenario provided
for developer payments but no
new utility connections. After the

Economic development could help local area


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The economic picture is not all gloom and
doom. At their meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 13 the
Okeechobee Utility Authority (OUA) Board of
Directors did hear some good news from Brian
Cartland, director of economic development
for Okeechobee Main Street.
The board also donated a tower site to the
county for the Statewide Law Enforcement
Radio System (SLERS) and approved two con-
struction projects.
Mark Smith of Okeechobee Main Street in-
troduced economic development director Bri-
an Cartland to the board.
"Our goal is job creation," Mr. Smith said. He
added that more new businesses would mean
more utility connections for OUA. He said his
organization dusted off the economic develop-
ment plan prepared by Bill Fruth in 2006. Be-
cause of Okeechobee's central location, Mr.
Smith said Okeechobee was "truly a gem" for

current fiscal year, water rates would have
to increase 3.5 percent a year for the fol-
lowing four years. If the wastewater system
were expanded to cover Treasure Island,
wastewater rates would have to increase 2.5
percent a year for the next four years. Other-
wise, there would be no need for wastewa-
ter rates to increase under this scenario.

anyone looking for a distribution network.
The key to Mr. Fruth's economic develop-
ment plan is a full-time director of economic
development. Mr. Carltand is currently working
under the umbrella of Okeechobee Main Street.
However, the goal is for him to become an in-
dependent self sustaining entity.
Mr. Cartland presented his credentials in
economic development. Among other organi-
zations he has worked for the City of Tampa
and Sarasota and Pinellas counties and has
been involved in corporate expansion and ad-
ministered business assistance programs. He
said he wanted to help local businesses to ex-
pand and help companies who want to come
to Okeechobee. Mr. Cartland said he was cur-
rently negotiating with a business that is consid-
ering relocating to Okeechobee. This business
wold create 50 new jobs that pay 136 percent of
the average Okeechobee wage and would have
a tax impact of $629,000 to the county. Among
Mr. Cartland's activities for 2009 are printing a


The third scenario predicted no devel-
oper payments and no new connections. In
that case, water rates would have to increase
3.5 percent a year after this year. Wastewater
increases would be higher. Without includ-
ing Treasure Island, wastewater rates would
have to increase 14.5 percent next year and
9.5 percent the following year. However, the
last two years of the five year study showed
no wastewater increases. If Treasure Island
were added to the wastewater system,
wastewater rates would increase a whop-
ping 37 percent next year. However, no
other rate increases were predicted for the
remaining three years. If a 30 percent grant
could be secured for Treasure Island that in-
crease would drop to 30 percent.
"I think w re looking at scenario three,"
board member Carl Leonard said.
Alternate board member Devin Maxwell
noted that the utility probably would not get
any money from new growth.

FWC: Boating legislation protects people and resources


New laws aimed at boating safety and
protecting natural resources are in effect. The
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) and other law enforcement
agencies throughout state are out to alert
Floridians to new laws and enhancements
to existing laws that deal with boating under
the influence, boating safety education, wa-
terway markers, possession of gasoline on a
vessel and destruction of coral.


The enhanced penalty for BUI is the same
as it is for driving under the influence. The
blood-alcohol level or breath-alcohol level
of 0.20 that was a violation in the past has
changed to 0.15.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, any boater born
on or after Jan. 1, 1988 will be required to
take an approved boating safety course and
possess an FWC-issued boating safety identi-
fication card. Anyone born on or after Jan. 1,

Another prohibited activity is placement
and use of a waterway marker that does not
conform to the U.S. Aids to Navigation Sys-
tem and does not have an FWC permit. It's
also unlawful for boaters to moor to govern-
ment-placed waterway markers or lawfully
placed waterway markers except in emer-
gency situations or with written consent of
the marker's owner.
Also, it is illegal to possess or operate a
vessel with nonconforming or unapproved
gasoline containers or to transport gasoline


in an unventilated or improperly ventilated
compartment.
Laws regarding titling, numbering and
registration now apply to any vessel oper-
ated, used or stored on state waters except
vessels lawfully stored at a dock or marina.
Boaters who damage coral reefs are re-
quired to notify the Department of Environ-

damage coral reefs are required to cooperate
with that department to remove their vessels
and to assess and restore the coral reef.

dates who should get the prize too. They've
all been saying how much they want world
peace for a lot longer than Mr. Obama has
been making speeches.

Animal control
It seems that people in all areas of the
country are often, if not constantly, having
problems with animal control people not
doing their job. You will not get anything ac-
complished with them until you find the ac-
tual written ordinance in your county, mail
the portion to the person who does not do
his job properly, as well as the county com-
missioners and anybody else who might be
in charge of hiring and firing. Not until a per-
son is faced with the possibility of losing his
job will he finally get it that he must actually
DO his job.
Treasure Island has a BIG problem
with loose dogs. Why can't animal control
do their job? I can't even put my dogs out-
side in their pens without having to chase
the neighborhood mutt out of my yard. It's
ridiculous.
I tried walking my dog, on a leash of
course, and was very soon swarmed by all
the loose dogs. If animal control has trouble
finding the dogs that are running loose, just
bring a dog with you on a leash and walk
around any neighborhood. The loose dogs
will come running to challenge the strange
dog and you can easily catch them.

Call the County Animal Control, your
taxes pay for the service. They are who
you call about nui-
sance animals. The
Humane Society is
a nonprofit pet res-
cue. They do not in-
vestigate, pickup, or
euthanize animals.
It is an organiza-
tion in Okeechobee
to rescue the un-
wanted, abandoned
and abused pets. Please support your local
Humane Society with giving time, donate
(food, litter, paper towels, bleach, etc. or
money to pay the expenses of spay/neuter,
vaccinations, up keep of the shelter facility,
rent, and operations. All of the pets from the
shelter are spayed or neutered. Donations
are tax deductible. Operated by volunteers.

Halloween
I am glad to hear that Main Street is go-
ing to host the party at the Agri-Civic Center
again. It was really nice last year. If every
family who plans to take their children to
participate in the festival donates a bag of
candy, there would be more than enough to
go around.
Many of my neighbors do not celebrate
Halloween at all because they are funda-
mentalist Christians. Years ago, I told my
kids to only trick-or-treat at houses that were
decorated for Halloween. If you don't see a
Jack-o-lantern or other Halloween decora-
tions, unless you person-
ally know the people who
live there, best to skip that
house. We need to respect
everyone's beliefs.
I heard one of the
churches that just to host a
fall festival is going to skip
it this year, so there will be
even more people looking
for a safe place to take the kids on Hallow-
een. So I am glad they are having the event
at the Agri-Civic Center. The long lines last
year were a little frustrating for the younger
kids. Maybe more of the clubs and churches
could pitch in and put in more booths. The
lines got long at the booths.
I wish the schools would let the kids
wear their costumes to school like they used
to. That was fun for the kids to see all the
different costumes.

Letters to the Editor


Okeechobee News


Thank you Okeechobee
Our school supply drive this year was big-
ger and better than ever before. My Aunt's
House filled over 300 backbacks. Each filled
with exactly what each child needed for the
grade and school they were attending.
None of this could have happened with-
out the excellent support we received from
so many of our dedicated neighbors in
Okeechobee. Thank you Magi Cable, Kay
Duke, Karen Smith, Dianne Flavo, Louise
Keefe, Gay Carlton, Bryan and Joni Ard, Rob-
ert and Paulette Kaplan, Florida Power and
Light, Glades Electric, First Baptist Church,
Wal-Mart, Publix, Firefighter Union Local
2918, Children's Services Council, Nurs-
ing Instructor Pam Oulette, and students at
Indian River State College, Charles Murphy
with WOKC and the Okeechobee News,
Billy Dean with WOKC and all the others


for your generous donations. This is a tough
year economically for all in our community,
but because of you and people like you, My
Aunt's House was able to serve so many dis-
advantaged children.
As the volunteers passed out the back-
packs the week before school started, we re-
ceived many hugs from children and adults,
a lot of happy tears from appreciative moms,
(and dads) and way over 300 thanks from
the families. We told each of the families,
"We were just the volunteers in between.
The people who donated the supplies are
the ones that should receive all the credit."
So, we are trying to do just that! Thank you
very much.
Thanks again,
Judy Watts, Director
My Aunt's House

Cash for Clunkers tax break bonus
The "Cash for Clunkers" program for
new cars may have ended, but the IRS wants
to remind taxpayers that many people might
overlook another special break available. If
you buy a new vehicle this year, there's a
special federal tax deduction available that
can help you save money, in some cases
hundreds of dollars. This tax break will al-
low people who buy a new vehicle in 2009
to deduct the sales and excise taxes they pay
when they file their tax return next year. The
tax deduction is available on the 2009 fed-
eral tax return even for those who claim the
standard deduction.
The deduction is part of the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and
applies to taxes paid on up to $49,500 of the
purchase price for qualified new cars, light
trucks, motorcycles or motor homes. Gener-


ally, vehicles weighing 8,500 pounds or less
qualify. This means that most new cars and
many new trucks will qualify. New motor
homes qualify regardless of weight.
Buyers are entitled to a partial deduction
if they earn between $125,000 and $135,000
($250,000 and $260,000 for joint filers). The
deduction is eliminated for those who earn
over these amounts.
To qualify the vehicle must be new and
purchased in 2009 after Feb. 16 and no later
than Dec. 31. There is still time left but the
clock is ticking.
More information is available at www.irs.
gov/recovery.

on the phone Friday and said everyone she
contacted, was more than happy to donate.
"I decided it was something that was so
important that we raised $1,000 in one day,"
she said. "I'm just happy that this happened
for the kids. We need to keep it fresh in their


than when they drink and drive.
He added that driver's who have blood
alcohol levels around the legal limit of .08,
are actually more dangerous than other
drunks, "The biggest surprise people have
is being just at or below the legal limit,"
he said. "That's the most dangerous level.
They're surprised that with a low level of in-
toxication there's a large level of delay. It's
the most dangerous level. If you look at sta-
tistics the most fatalities and property dam-
age is done by drivers at or just below the
legal limit."
There will be several events this month
that address this issue. Captain John Rhoden
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
will put on a public presentation on Thurs-
day night, Oct. 22 at 6:30 pm. Okeechobee
High School will also host a guest speaker
on Oct. 27. A candlelight vigil for the victims

Special sales tax deduction for car purchases


With 2010 models arriving in dealer
showrooms, the Internal Revenue Service
reminds taxpayers that purchasing a new
car, light truck, motor home or motorcycle
could qualify them for a special deduction
for the state and local sales and excise taxes
on their 2009 tax returns.
Purchases made before Jan. 1, 2010, will
qualify for this deduction under the Ameri-
can Recovery & Reinvestment Act of 2009
(ARRA).
The deduction is limited to the sales and
excise taxes and similar fees paid on up
to $49,500 of the purchase price of a new
vehicle. The deduction is reduced for joint
filers with modified adjusted gross incomes
(MAGI) between $250,000 and $260,000
and other taxpayers with MAGI between
$125,000 and $135,000. Taxpayers with
higher incomes do not qualify.
Taxpayers who make qualifying new
vehicle purchases this year can estimate
the deduction with the help of Worksheet
10 in IRS Publication 919, How Do I Adjust
My Withholding? Lines 10a to 10k of the
worksheet show how to take into account
purchases above the $49,500 limit, as well
as the reduced deductions for taxpayers at
higher income levels.
The special deduction is available regard-
less of whether taxpayers itemize deduc-
tions on their returns. Taxpayers who do
not itemize will add this additional amount
to the standard deduction on their 2009 tax
return.
For those that have questions about the
deduction for sales tax and other fees, these
questions and answers might help. A video
on the IRS Youtube.com channel and audio
podcasts in English and Spanish are also


available to help taxpayers take full advan-
tage of the deduction.

Fort Pierce rallies to


down Brahman JV


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Jamel Jackson scored twice in the second
half to rally the Fort Pierce Central Cobras to
a 20-12 victory over Okeechobee in junior
varsity football action on Monday.
Okeechobee had played very well in the
first half and had made two nice defensive
stands in the third quarter to protect the
lead.
Brahman Coach Rex Erwin said a few
mistakes cost his team, "We put the defense
in a bad spot a couple of times. A fumble
on that QB exchange again, that hurt. You
can only ask your defense to do so much, I
couldn't ask them to do any more."
Tommy Jackson had a big night for
Okeechobee. He scored on two running
plays in the first half, and also had a big hit
that sent Cobra running back Quincy Price
to Raulerson Hospital with an injury in the
third quarter. It appeared that Jackson's big
hit fired up Fort Pierce.
"We were flat in the first half but got mo-
tivated in the second half," Cobras Coach
Peter Crespo said. The team ran the ball very
effective and the defense pitched a shutout
in the second half. That equals victory."
Jamel Jackson said the big hit got the
team's head into the game. "We were ready
to play in the second half. It wasn't just me,
my wide receivers blocked very well for
me."
Jackson said Okeechobee was the tough-
est team Fort Pierce has played this year. The
win improved the Cobras to (4-0) on the
year.
A late interception and a fumble hurt
Okeechobee's chances. The Brahman de-
fense was on the field for most of the sec-
ond half as Okeechobee's offense couldn't
get first downs and move the ball.
"You can't be disappointed with the ef-
fort for the most part. Some things we have
to fix starting tomorrow, we'll try to get that
done," Erwin noted.
Tommy Jackson had a memorable first
half. He scored on a five yard run late in the
first quarter, and then busted loose on a 52
yard run in the final minute of the half to


Tommy Jackson scored two touch-
downs to lead Okeechobee JV Mon-
day night.
set up his second score. He ran in from the
six yard line and literally moved the pile for
about three of those yards.
"They were a pretty tough team. This was
a hard game. Defense is what wins games.
We have to shut the other team out and do
what we do on offense," he noted.
Fort Pierce scored on a 70 yard reverse in
the first half scored by J.B. Blackstone.
Joey Santibanez, and Sir Wiggins had big
games on defense for Okeechobee. D'eronte
Files had a good game running the football
for Okeechobee.

State Road 710 From U.S. 441 to C.R. 714 (S.W. Martin Highway)

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, has scheduled a pub-
lic information corridor workshop regarding the proposed extension of S.R. 710 from
U.S. 441 to S.R. 70 in Okeechobee County. The workshop will be held on Thursday,
October 22, 2009, from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the Okeechobee County Civic
Center, located at 1750 U.S. Highway 98 North in Okeechobee.

The proposed extension is part of a Project Development & Environment (PD&E)
Study to consider future improvements to S.R. 710 between U.S. 441 in Okeechobee
County and C.R. 714 (S.W. Martin Highway) in Martin County, a distance of approx-
imately 13 miles. This workshop is being held to provide an overview of the S.R. 710
extension study to date and to obtain comments on the alternative corridors being con-
sidered for the extension of S.R. 710. The workshop will be conducted in an open
house forum, and participants are welcome to come at any time between 5:00 p.m. and
7:00 p.m. A narrated slideshow presentation will run continuously during the work-
shop. Project representatives will be present to informally discuss the project, receive
public input and answer questions.

One of the most important aspects of a PD&E Study is public involvement.
Opportunities for the public to review project alternatives and documentation, and
offer input will be provided at this workshop. This project is being developed in com-
pliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and related statutes. Public par-
ticipation is solicited without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, religion,
disability or family status. Persons with disabilities who may require special accom-
modations at the workshop under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 or per-

FWC continues public comment period

on imperiled species listing changes


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) encourages the public to
view draft rules for the state's imperiled species
listing process and make comments by Nov. 6.
Comments will be reviewed and used to revise
the draft rules before presentation to the Conm-
mission at the December meeting in Clewiston.
The goal of the new draft rules is to provide
for a comprehensive and cohesive approach to
managing species so they will thrive, rather than
become extinct. The draft rules focus on improv-
ing the management system and listing process
for Florida's imperiled species and link species
protection to science, while using a balanced ap-
proach through collaboration and partnerships.
The imperiled species listing team worked
with stakeholders and the public during the
process of drafting the new rules, which are a
streamlined process that avoids duplication with
the federal listing process and provides for the
highest level of conservation for species through


e


management plans. As the FWC continues to
work on the draft rules, stakeholder and public
meetings will continue.
"The input received so far has been invalu-
able, and as a result, we've made significant
changes to the original draft after working
with the public and stakeholders," said Dr. Elsa
Haubold, leader of the FWC's imperiled species
listing team. "This process has been an excel-
lent example of partners coming together and
working on the issues, which will ensure a Flor
ida where no species goes extinct and wildlife
thrives."
The draft rules are available for reviewing and
comment at MyFWC.com/WILDLIFEHABITATS/
imperiledSpp_index.htm. Public comments on
the draft rules may be sent to imperiled@My
FWC.com no later than Nov. 6 at 5 p.m. EST.

opens BASS

tournament

circuit

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
For the third time a nationally known
fishing tournament is coming to Okeecho-
bee. BASS (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society)
recently announced that the 2010 Bassmas-
ter Southern Open Division circuit will begin
on Lake Okeechobee, Jan. 14 -16, 2010. The
Bassmaster Opens consist of three qualify
ing tournaments in each of three geographic
divisions. The two top competitors from
each of the three divisions will compete in
the 2011 Bassmaster Classic and other quali-
fiers can compete in the 2011 Bassmaster
Elite Series.
The Okeechobee tournament is spon-
sored by the Okeechobee County Tourist De-
velopment Council and is expected to have
a tremendous economic impact on the area.
Kathy Scott of the tourist development coun-
cil said the event is expected to draw 200
boats and 400 anglers and give Okeechobee
much media coverage. The economic im-
pact is expected to be $800,000, according
to Mrs. Scott. The tournament will be held
out of Scott Driver Park.
This same tournament was held in
Okeechobee in 2004 and in 2006. It was
originally scheduled to be held here again
early in this year but had to be cancelled due
to low water.
"The opens have proven to be very popu-
lar with anglers looking for a highly competi-
tive circuit with opportunities to advance to
the most prestigious levels in bass fishing,"
said James Wilkinson, senior director of
event operations and business development,
ESPN Outdoors and BASS in a press release.
"We are very pleased with the direction of
these events."

Cooperative Extension Service and moving
to Okeechobee County in 1984 to serve as
Okeechobee County's Extension Director,"
she continued.
"It is lucky for the people in Okeechobee
., ,a, ,a i.' i,, been here ever since.
I a ,,iii. ,tenure in Okeechobee
County, he said there was only one organized
4-H club consisting of 10-12 members. This
I ., I ,,, ,,,,,1 III
expanded greatly in Okeechobee County. Al-
though Pat has received many awards, he is
not one that seeks accolades or awards for
himself.
"When Pat was honored by his peers in
2004 with the Distinguished Service Award,
an award given to less that 3 percent of Ex-
tension Agents, a quote by one of our own
4-H volunteers summed it up best when she
said, 'I can't remember a livestock show
or fair ain the last 15 years when he wasn't
there, maybe not in the forefront, but always


working in the background; always helping
and always a word of encouragement for
the kids.' Mr. Miller said, 'Our job is to help
people help themselves. We educate and
inform. When we give people more infor-
mation, we give more choices and greater
possibilities.'
"Pat Miller's job description listed only 15
percent of his time as youth development,
but anyone that knows him, knows better.
Judging contests are always scored by Pat
Miller, whether they are livestock, horse,
goat, vegetable or dairy, 4-H or FFA, South
Florida Fair, Florida State Fair, State 4-H Dairy
Show, Central Florida Fair, Okeechobee FFA
Alumni, or the Okeechobee County Fair. He
is the one that checks out the computer pro-
gram the week before to make sure that it is
still working and takes appropriate action if
it is not; he is the one that loads the equip-
ment and arrives early to make sure regis-
tration happens without a hitch. Pat was al-
ways the one with the hot, 1.r, i I. Ii..
up animals at cow shows,. i n, ,,,. i
the concession stand that is cooking in the
heat, washing dishes, or mopping floors. At
the Barbecue, he is the one with the thank-
less jobs. 4-H Awards banquets would find
Pat cooking, cleaning, sweeping floors, once
again, the last to leave," Mrs. Clements said.
"Pat Miller has the gift of encouragement,
of helping people, whether youth or adult,
become the best they can be. He only sees
the good in people, and helps others follow
that example. He truly cares about people.
"After 25 years with the Okeechobee
County Extension Service, Pat retired on
August 31, 2009. However, his volunteer ap-
plication, dated September 1, 2009 was ac-
cepted with appreciation," she said.
