By Eric KoppOkeechobee News Reports at the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Of ce (OCSO) indicate local businesses have recently been receiving counterfeit bills in varying denominations. The most recent of those incidents was Tuesday, May 27, when a woman unwittingly paid for a purchase at a S.R. 70 E. gas station with a bogus $10 bill. OCSO Deputy Matthew Grumbling spoke to the woman, who reportedly told him she had just received the bill as change from another local business where she had made a $50 purchase. The woman was able to produce a sales receipt indicating she had made the purchase about 10 minutes before passing the bad bill at the gas station. On May 18, OCSO Deputy Sergeant Shannon Peterson handled a similar complaint where a S.R. 70 E. convenience store had received two counterfeit bills — a $20 and a $50 bill. According to Sgt. Peterson’s report the clerk who took the bogus $20 bill identi ed it as being counterfeit. The clerk told that person, who is a regular customer of the business, the bill Stores catch bogus bills Special to the Okeechobee News The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jacksonville District has announced restrictions on lock operations on the Okeechobee Waterway due to falling water levels on Lake Okeechobee. Effective Thursday, June 5, locking operations at the W.P. Franklin Lock & Dam near Fort Myers and the St. Lucie Lock & Dam near Stuart will be conducted every two hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily. This action is the result of the water level at Lake Okeechobee falling below 12.5 feet. “This is standard operating procedure whenever the lake falls below 12.5 feet” said Steve Dunham, Chief of the Corps’ South Florida Operations Of ce. “We encourage boaters to be aware of the lake level and consider that drafts will continue to decrease if the lake drops more in coming Waterway locking hours to be restricted due to lake levelSee LOCKS — Page 5 See BILLS — Page 5 A r e y o u r e a d y f o r Are you ready for a h u r r i c a n e ? a hurricane? ...

Drowning I am praying for the family of the boy w ho drowned at the Douglas Swing pond and for everyone who was there when this tragic event happened. I hope they don’t close the pond. My kids love swimming there. I know I s ign a waiver every time I go out there.  I hope this tragedy does not ruin a good t hing the Douglas family has done for this c ommunity.  I am praying for the family and friends of t he boy who died and for the Douglas family. I hope they all know we are keeping them in our thoughts and prayers. This was just an accident and no one is at fault.Sheriff’s budget On May 30, at the close of the business day, the sheriff will have made his rst move and reveal his intentions on how the next scal budget year’s battle will begin. Will it start with legal action testing his ability of giving the county the jail and court security operations, or will the county show the sheriff the budget they submitted for him in the 2013/2014 budget year is a budget they can operate on. I think it’s going to be an interesting next four months!  From what they said at the meeting, t here is no question about the judicial center s ecurity. If the sheriff doesn’t want to handle it, the county has to. No one can make the sheriff do it if he doesn’t want to. The judge wants cops with guns there but he can’t force the sheriff to handle courthouse security. I think the idea of seeing if city police would take it over is interesting. It’s in the city limits. They have jurisdiction. However, how long would it take to add enough certi ed of cers to the police department? If the deputies who work there now lose their jobs when the sheriff drops the courthouse responsibility, maybe the city could hire them under a contract with the county. Different uniform but same job.County jail As the sheriff and the county play chicken with the county jail, I feel sorry for the corrections of cers. They have to be worried about what is going to happen and they would be more comfortable if the jail stayed part of the sheriff’s of ce. I am glad the county administrator has made it clear that the county will not privatize the jail. So the jobs should be secure and the county employees are already on the state retirement system so they won’t lose their pensions. But there are so many other questions to the answered that it can’t be easy for them.Dog bite In regard to the story about the dog biting the little girl, this was obviously an accident as the girl got between two dogs. It was not trying to attack the child. But the big problem I saw for the owner is that he could not produce proof of vaccination. If your dog is not vaccinated and it bites someone, they might have to put it down to run tests on the brain to make sure it was not rabid. It is really important to have your dogs up to date on their shots. God meant it for goodCalvin H. Fryar, pastorBrighton Baptist Church “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” (Gen. 50:20). This is Joseph’s comment to his trembling brothers. They had threatened to kill him but sold him as a slave to a caravan headed for Egypt instead. They had been called before Joseph for a second time and when they found out who he was, they were fearful for their life. But Joseph, with tears in his eyes, said, “Ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” Joseph did not let the unbelief and hard hearts of his brothers change his mind about God. He remained true because he realized that God may be preparing a situation or a person ahead of him. He spent years in an alien land waiting upon God. He also knew that God may use delays to re ne his integrity and deepen his trust in Him. Instant grati cation and spiritual maturity simply do not go together. Do you remember that scene in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” when Tom, the slave, is talking to Augustin St. Claire, the man who owns him? Augustin St. Claire says to Tom, “Tom, how do you even know there is a Jesus Christ?” Tom replies, “Why, Massah, I know him in my heart, and I know he loves you.” “But, Tom,” says St. Claire, “how do you know that?” Tom replies, “My soul knows it, Massah.” “But, Tom, you know that I know a great deal more than you do. What would you say, for example, if I told you that I don’t believe much that is in the Bible? Would that shake your faith?” “Not a grain, Massah. Not a grain.”—Bruce Thielemann, “Because,” Preaching Today, Tape No. 105. THE PORTRAIT OF JOSEPH given us in the Bible is a picture or a type of Jesus Christ. In fact, the entire story is like a shadowy picture (a negative) of the entire life of Jesus Christ. I can almost hear the Lord Jesus speaking to the Jews, as they examine the wounds in His body, “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good…” Take a quick look at the story of Joseph…. He was loved by his father and given a special brightly colored coat. Such treatment caused his brethren to hate him. And because of their hatred of him, they attempted to kill him. He was sold for the price of a slave and carried to Egypt where he served the Gentiles. Meanwhile, Jacob (Israel) his father thought he was dead because they returned the special coat of many colors with animal blood on it. Joseph waited in Egyp t for the will of the God and while a slave in the house of Potiphar [an Egyptian/Gentile] he was falsely accused and locked away in prison where he continued to prosper. Whil e there he helped many but was forgotten b y the very ones whom he had helped. Then at the fullness of time, God was ready to use the one he had prepared. Joseph was remembered in time to prepar e for the coming seven-year crisis and brough t from prison to the throne. He was given th e power to open the storehouse and save th e world and his brethren. THE PORTRAIT OF JESUS is very much like a positive print of the story seen in th e life of Joseph. When I look at a picture o f Jesus on the cross, I have no trouble hearing Jesus say, “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.” It is amazing when you consider th e meaning of Joseph’s name — it means “add thou Jehovah.” June 1, 2014 4 Okeechobee News OPINION Public Forum/Speak Out Re ections from the pulpit Editor: Katrina Elsken Circulation Manager: Dee Gaudin Publisher: Tom ByrdSpeak Out has moved online, where it i s quicker and easier to share your ideas a nd converse with others.

Community Events Brought to you by:Plumbing & Air ConditioningSince 1975 Lic#CAC1817236 was phony. The customer said they had just hosted a yard sale and had apparently received the bill as payment for a purchase. The customer then paid their bill with other money and the clerk kept the counterfeit bill. As for the $50, the clerk wasn't sure when that bill was taken in payment. Another convenience store took a bogus $10 bill on May 17 when a customer used it to pay for a purchase. The clerk told the investigating deputy, Corporal Michael Hazellief, the bill did not feel right and when she swiped it with a detection pen the mark indicated the bill was no good. Cpl. Hazellief said the customer stayed at the store until he arrived and reportedly said she had received the counterfeit note from another convenience store on U.S. 441 S.E. After conducting an investigation, Cpl. Hazellief stated in his report the woman who passed the counterfeit bill was cooperative and "... is not considered a willing participant in the exchange of counterfeit currency."
