By Pete GawdaOkeechobee News When they meet tomorrow, Okeechobee County Commissioners will consider suing the state. A bill recently signed into law by the governor requires the state to collect past disputed Medicaid bills by withholding county revenue sharing and half cent sales tax distributions. This law could end up costing the county thousands of dollars. The Florida Association of Counties is challenging this law in court. Commissioners will consider becoming a plaintiff in the lawsuit at a cost of $1,000. The cost of participating in this lawsuit is prorated according to the size of the county with counties of less than 75,000 in populations paying $1,000 each. In a matter that was tabled from the last meeting, commissioners will consider applying for a U.S. Department of Agriculture grant for speci c enhancement to the Okeechobee County AgriCivic Center.

By Eric KoppOkeechobee News An Okeechobee man died from injuries he received after the Moped he was riding was reportedly struck in the back by a motorist on S.R. 70 E. in Highlands County. According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) accident report Don Lawton Morgan, 25, U.S. 441 S.E., was eastbound on S.R. 70 near Kissimmee River Estates Saturday, April 21, when the accident occurred. FHP Trooper Mark P. Marcus said Mr. Morgan's vehicle's lights were not on and he was wearing dark clothing when Alicia Koger Page, 46, N.W. 12th St., Okeechobee, hit the low-powered motorcycle with her 1994 Chevrolet Caprice automobile around 10:34 p.m. The trooper's report said both Mr. Morgan and Ms. Page were eastbound when the front of the car hit the back of the Moped. Mr. Morgan was apparently thrown from his motor scooter upon impact. Damage to the Chevrolet was estimated at $2,500, while the Moped sustained an estimated $200 in damages, stated the report. Ms. Page was transported to Raulerson Hospital with minor injuries, Trooper Marcus stated. If anyone has any information about the crash, or if their vehicle sustained any damage due to the accident, they are asked to contact the FHP station in Bradenton at 941-751-7647. Moped operator killed in crash The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District has announced it has begun releasing water from Lake Okeechobee to the Caloosahatchee River to ease growing concerns about toxic algal blooms. The water release began April 23 with a target ow to the Caloosahatchee of 2,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) over a three-day period as measured at W.P. Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79) east of Fort Myers. The water release is being timed in a manner to take advantage of signi cant rain that fell in the Lake Okeechobee and Caloosahatchee watersheds over the weekend. Concern for algal blooms has been rising in recent weeks, as water has stagnated during the drought conditions that have affected the region. While staff with the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) reported no visible algal blooms during tests conducted last week, consensus has been building that properly timed water releases could help circulate water in the river, reducing the likelihood for blooms to develop. "This water release is being done now so we can take maximum advantage of the rain that fell this weekend," said John Kilpatrick, Chief of the Jacksonville District's Multi-Project Branch, which has oversight of water management at the lake, "the release, in additional to the runoff from the rain, will allow us to push more water through the system helping reduce the potential for algal blooms." On Monday, the lake stage was 11.86 feet. Corps begins water release to Caloosahatchee

School board hearing I think it is faulty logic to say that people won’t stay if they don’t have a guarantee of continued employment. No one else in the community has that guarantee and yet people stay. The business I work for has cut about one-third of the staff due to the poor economy and those of us still employed are hanging on to the jobs we have. We are not looking to move somewhere else. The teachers on continuing contract get to keep their old system if they don’t want to go for the merit pay, if I understand this stuff right. I’m not a teacher, so maybe I don’t understand it all. But it seems to me that if a teacher is doing a good job and the kids are making learning gains, that teacher is very likely to be retained. Why would they re a teacher who is successful in the classroom?  I don’t care about all the politics and arguing. I just want the kids and grandkids to get the education they need. I want them prepared for college and a solid career. Some of the teachers do so little. Some do so much. Same for the administrators. Some seem to just hold down a chair for a salary while others seem to do the job.  Nobody works harder than teachers, but no teacher works harder than anyone else. We need to accept the responsibility of researching who we vote for and not assume the rhetoric we hear on the campaign trail is true. When we collectively start voting for the candidates who have worked their political lives in our best interest, and demand to see the results of their actions, we will again be moving in the right direction.  I do not believe that teachers work harder than a lot of other people in the public sector as I have worked in both. It is all in the ethics of the person and wanting to do the best possible job.  Except for 3rd grade, 10th grade and the few End-of-Course exams that exist, students are not held accountable for doing well on the test. They can fail the test and still be promoted to the next grade. A 6th grader can take the FCAT, fail every part of it, and still go on to the seventh grade. So what is the incentive for the student to do well? And yet we want to base teacher salary and position on test scores for which students are not held accountable?  I think the school board we have now is sympathetic to teachers. Three of them are former teachers. But they also have to be business people and handle a budget that has been repeatedly cut due to state cut backs. And they have to follow the rules that the legislature makes.  State cuts? This is the only county in the state with a 19% fund balance!! No other has more than 5-6 percent fund balance.Signs stolen To the person or person’s stealing political signs: You are committing a crime! Not only are you stealing the sign from that person’s yard and the political campaign, you are stealing that person’s right to give their money to a political candidate that is then used to purchase the signs. Any person that would seek to suppress the civil liberties of another American is a destroyer of the Constitution our country was founded upon. America is the land of the free and everyone has their opinion especially in an election year, but your opinion cannot be conveyed while committing a crime. It is well known that for years people have been stealing political signs. Remember that theft is a Crime.  I noticed some political signs on the county right of way. I thought they could only be on private property with the permission of the property owner.Teleministry? I got one of those robo calls today and was really beside myself. Instead of it being a telemarketing it was some sort of teleministry. This guy was promoting something called Awakening 2012, to be held at the Calvary Baptist Church in Lake Park. This is the most insane thing. I don’t watch televangelism and sure don’t appreciate getting calls from such groups. I think they are all over rated especially when they beg for my money and then live like the Queen of Sheba on it.

A G CENTERContinued From Page 1 TALLAHASSEE The Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) Teacher Community, in partnership with Novachi, is enhancing resources available to Florida's educators through an online launchpad with applications and collaborative tools designed to help teachers in the classroom. This week, the Teacher Classroom Collaboration (TCC) tool was added to the launchpad. The TCC is a social learning platform designed to facilitate online education by providing virtual classrooms on top of a social network. This innovative application combines the best social networking features with private classroom-level security to create a whole new way to learn and communicate. "The new Teacher Classroom Collaboration tool will allow teachers to connect directly with parents and students online by simply adding their information to the virtual interface," said FLDOE Deputy Director of Educator Relations Kelly Seay. Teacher Classroom Collaboration enables teachers to work with students and parents in a classroom-like setting with con dence that the classroom activities are private. Teachers have the ability to create new classes, invite students and parents, and act as the administrator for their newly created virtual classrooms. Students can nd their list of classes, participate in classroom activities and discussions, upload assignments, review shared content, class requirements and calendars, access learning trees, and view photos and videos. Teachers who already have an account on Florida's Teacher Community through Novachi will automatically view the new Teacher Classroom Collaboration application on the launchpad.

The predicted wide spread storms of this past weekend did not materialize and the county received sporadic rainfall. Tuesday’s low relative humidity and higher than normal winds contribute to wild re conditions. Ms. Yunas said that on a scale of zero to 800 with 800 being the highest danger of wild re, as of Tuesday morning Okeechobee County scored a 547. She said that even though pasture grasses that received rain will green up if they received rain this weekend, larger vegetation is still dry. In some areas she said the thick overhead canopy prevented vegetation from receiving much rainfall. She said there are still dead twigs and leaves on the ground that are dry and can contribute to wild res. Between Jan. 1 and April 19 statewide 1,418 wild res consumed 35,936 acres. The Forest Service recommends that people who live in heavily wooded areas prepare an evacuation plan before wild re occurs. They also urge caution with anything that can cause a spark. If a person is responsible for causing a wild re they might be liable for re ghting costs and possibly also face nes and legal fees.Post your opinions in the Public Issues Forum at www.newszap.com.

By Charles M. MurphyOkeechobee News A group of seven Okeechobee High School athletes competed Tuesday in the regional track meet in Miami. Thor Harden quali ed in the shot-put, Dan Beyel quali ed in the discus throw, Tabatha Henry quali ed in the 3200 meter race, and the four boys in the 100 meter relay team quali ed for that event. Harden overcame concussion problems w ith football this fall to compete in track for the second straight year. He has grown in size and strength and increased his career best throw by three feet. His personal best is 42 feet. "I tried both the shotput and the discus but the shotput was a lot easier to me. We have no throwing coach so we kind of use w hat we learned last year and lift weights and work on our technique," he said. Henry won her second district title during her sophomore year last week when she captured the 3200 meter race at South Fork High School. She was the district champion in cross country last fall. Henry came from behind in the nal 50 meters to win the race by less than a second. "The district title was the best feeling in the world for me. I never thought I would w in because of the girls who were running against me but I was proud to bring home another title," she said. Henry was ranked third of all the runners scheduled to compete at the regional. Her goal is to one day be a state champion and also qualify for nationals. She thanked the coaches, teammates, and friends who have supported her in her goal. Henry has a strict diet, exercise, and even rest pattern for her running. She said she does better in school during season because it really keeps her sharp. "I tell all the girls to practice because it really helps. I get a lot of sleep, I eat right, drink a lot of water, and do a lot of stretching to keep me in best running condition." Beyel played football for a few years and was recruited to the track team by former Coach Jonathan Morrow last year. He learned the discus last year and really took it seriously during his senior year. His longest toss is 113 feet but he is able to pass 120 feet in practice. "I'm pretty happy about qualifying for the regional. I didn't expect to go this far and I got a little lucky, but I'm glad all of my hard work paid off," he added. Beyel said he didn't regret any of the time he put in and congratulated all of his teammates that have stuck with the sport. "I went to track to stay in shape and it worked out well and I enjoyed it. All of the team stuc k with it and did well." The runners who competed this year on the 4x100 meter relay team included Alec Emmonds, Wesley White, Alec Anderson, Tyrell Taylor and Mike Thomas.
