Florida Sheriffs Association hires law “ rm to help MayBy Eric KoppOkeechobee News Sheriff Paul May received more than just a vote of con“ dence last weekend when the legal “ rm of Allen, North and Blue (ANB) was hired to represent him in the lawsuit “ led against him by the county. The board of directors for the Florida Sheriffs Association (FSA) voted unanimously Sunday, July 27, to hire ANB to assist Stuart attorney Adam Fetterman with the sheriffs case. Mr. Fetterman will remain the lead counsel for Sheriff May. Okeechobee County Sheriffs Of“ ce (OCSO) Major Noel Stephen said Tuesday, July 29, the hiring of ANB shows just how adamant they (FSA) are. They are taking the same stance Sheriff May is taking.Ž Both Sheriff May and Maj. Stephen are attending the FSA summer conference in Tallahassee this week. The lawsuit was “ led in Okeechobee County to compel Sheriff May ... to comply with various Florida statutes concerning submission of budgets and operation of the Okeechobee County Jail,Ž stated a press release from the county. This whole battle began when the two sides couldnt agree on a budget for the sheriffs of“ ce, the county jail and courthouse security. The sheriff was seeking a total budget of $14.8 million. After several meetings, the sheriff “ nall y told the Okeechobee County Board of Count y Commissioners that, after Sept. 30, he would no longer run the jail. He then submitted a detailed budget for the sheriffs of“ ce of $8.8 million. That spending FSA backs sheriff in lawsuit With generous funding from the Florida Humanities Council, the Florida Wildlife Corridor and the Williamson Conference Center at Indian River State College bring an evening of “ lm and conversation surrounding the Florida Wildlife Corridor vision. Thursday, Aug. 21, at 7 p.m., the public is invited to attend a free screening of Florida Wildlife Corridor Expedition: Everglades to Okefenokee. In 2012, four explorers traveled 1000 miles in 100 days from the Everglades to the Okefenokee Swamp in southern Georgia. Their goal was to raise awareness along with protecting and restoring connected landscapes throughout the Florida Peninsula; and create a viable corridor from the Everglades to Georgia and Alabama. Bear biologist Joe Guthrie, conservationist Mallory Lykes Dimmitt, photojournalist Carlton Ward Jr., and award-winning cinematographer Elam Stoltzfus traversed the wildlife habitats, watersheds and participating working farms and ranches, which comprise the Florida Wildlife Corridor opportunity area. The Florida Wildlife Corridor expands on decades of work by numerous conservation organizations and a scienti“ c foundation provided by the Florida Ecological Greenways Network (FEGN), spearheaded by Larry Harris and Reed Noss. The Corridor vision combines all of the FEGN Critical Linkages from the Everglades to Georgia and Alabama to highlight the importance of protecting a functional network of public and private conservation lands to protect our native biodiversity, essential ecosystem services, and the rural natural heritage that is so unique to Florida. Corridors necessary for wildlife movement are also working landscapes important to Florida agriculture, ranching, timber production, and a way of life.

3 Okeechobee News July 30, 2014 Okeechobee News: Celebrating our Centennial! Florida is sustaining her ne lead among Southern States in the purchase of War Bonds and stamps. Since May 1, 1941, the people of this state bought $78,142,151 which includes our sales in May of $8,179,701 and June of $7,691,151. We know that July has capped all records in Florida, though we do not know yet just what the sales have been in each county. Okeechob ee County’s sales for July as of noon Thursday totalled $11,750. We have again doubled our quota. This is indeed something to be proud of. These large quotas we now have in Florida and American will require a good many sales of F and G Bonds to be bought by municipalities, counties, cities, lodges, schools, etc. I am calling this to your attention at this time hoping you will make arrangements through your postmaster, for your clubs or other organizations to buy F or G Bonds in the near future. Most organizations can “invest in America” with funds now available though it be only in small amounts. F bonds now range in maturity value from the $25 Bond to $10,000. The $25 Bond costing $18.50 and the $100 Bond costing $74, these bonds mature in twelve years and pay 2.53 percent a year, compounded semi-annually when bond is held to maturity. Saturday, August 1 starts are new month, and our quota will not be raised. It will be, as of July, $5,700. Many people have asked me if it would not be possible to get our quota in the early morning of August 1, and possibly be the rst in the nation, in two months in succession. I believe we have a good chance to do this, and it would be record mighty hard to beat. Okeechobee County would receive plenty o f national publicity of which it would be justly deserving. Let’s make it a date. Buy your August quota early Saturday morning, August 1, and try for a national record which I venture to say would stand for many months. WE CAN. WE WILL. WE MUST. W.R. PAGE, Chairman Okeechobee County War Savings Committee From the Okeechobee News, July 31, 1942County Has Bought Many Bonds Since Their Sale Started Editor’s note: this is the rst in a series of articles prepared by Home Service Advisers of the Florida Power & Light Company. The s econd, concerning care and use of the electric range, will appear next week. “As a consumer in the total defense of democracy, I will do my part to make my home, my community, my country, ready, ef cient, strong. I will buy carefully. I will take good care of the things I have. I will waste nothing.” These words constitute the pledge taken by millions of American housewives during Civilian Defense Week. They epitomize the part our women must play in the struggle ahead. There is no room for waste in wartime America, whether it be in industry, the armed forces or in the average home. “Conserve” has become a slogan of wartime American— conserve food, conserve vitamins by getting the full nutritive value from foods you serve, conserve all home equipment by using it ofcially and taking proper care of it. That is considered an all-important job on the home front for the duration. In the modern home, the refrigerator assumes special importance as a means of conserving food. Care and maintenance of the electric refrigerator is relatively simple and many years of continuous and economical service may be obtained by following a few simple rules. Be sure that your refrigerator is placed so that it is shielded from the sun most of the time and is a few inches away from the wall (for free air circulation). Wait until hot foods cool off before placing them in the refrigerator. This will decrease the operating time and save current. Do not “crowd” the food—allow a suf cient space between all foods so that air can freely circulate inside the cabinet. Keep the door closed as much as possible. This prevents the cold air from “pulling out” which causes the temperature to rise and the motor to start. Do not maintain a temperature that is colder than you really need. Set the control to “average” or around 40 degrees F. Defrost when the frost on the freezing compartment is about 1/4 inch thick—usually once a week. When defrosted, clean the inside of the cabinet and shelves with a cloth rung out of cool water in which soda or borax has been dissolved. Be sure to wash the cooling unit—that’s where food odors collect. Wash the door gasket with soap and water when cleaning the refrigerator. And be sure that the gasket seals the door tightly. Do not use a sharp instrument to force trays free or remove frost. This may cause chipping or even puncture the surface. Wipe spilled foods immediately. Do not let acid foods such as vinegar, lemons or tomatoes touch the enamel unless it is acid resistant. Use milk soap and warm water to clean the outside of the cabinet—never use gritty cleansers. If the nish is other than porcelain, wax it two or three times a year. When leaving for the week-end, turn the temperature control to the lowest point, not to “defrost.” The heart of your refrigerator is the motor. If it is “hermetically-sealed” it may not require oiling or adjusting. If it is an “open type” however, it should be periodically oiled and adjusted. Have your service man check your refrigerator once a year. From the Okeechobee News, July 31, 1942Florida Power and Light Offers Ways to Save In War Unless local law enforcement of cials act to clear up the prostitution situation, the FBI will step in through the invocation of the Mays Act, R.C. Danner, FBI agent in charge of Miami, told a group of peace of cers from Palm Beach County and neighboring counties at a conference in Palm Beach Wednesday. Danner promised that if our federal government does take over, the program is going to cause some “heads to roll.” This applies to Army and Navy heads as well as those of state and local of cials, he said. The Mays Act places control of venereal disease under the FBI where communities fail to cooperate with the Army and Navy. Florida ranks highest about the 28 states in venereal disease contamination, he said. Chief of Police R.C. Evans and State Road Patrolman Gibb Gross of his city attended the meeting from Okeechobee and after their return, Chief Evans conferred with Mayor H.H. Raulerson and other city of cials yesterday morning at which it was decided that the city would enforce the law as required and all single women who were on the streets after twelve o’clock would be arrested unless they had a good and lawful excuse for being out.

School grades€ Parents, turn off the TV and read to your kids for at least half an hour every night. It doesnt cost a thing. Kids who are read to b ecome readers themselves. You can get b ooks from the library. Give your kids that t ime every night. It will make such a difference in their lives and yours. You might “ nd y ou are looking forward to it just as much as they are. Start when they are babies and make it part of your family routine. € I think it is a shame that all of the children at South Elementary have to stay an extra hour because some did not making reading gains. This affects so many other family activities when you take that hour out of the day. They should only keep the ones w ho need help and use that extra hour for t utoring. If the kids are already getting plenty of parental supervision and help at home t hey dont need to be kept another hour at s chool. € How about requiring summer school for students who are not at grade level in order to get them caught up before the next s chool year starts? Or even hold them back a year and give them time to catch up? Why keep pushing kids through the system if they c ant handle the work yet? € The bigger issue is that the F-CAT is not allowing time for our children to be children. T he attend school all day, and bring home hours of homework We had achievement t ests when I was in school and that is how t hey decided where to place you the next y ear. With the F-CAT if your child does good w ork all year long, but fails the FCAT he/she c annot be promoted, this is sad news for t hose that dont test well.Okee-Tantie€ Okee-Tantie has the potential to be t he centerpiece of a strategy to reinvigorate Okeechobees visitor and hospitality indust ry. Done right, Okee-Tantie should produce a nice income for the county. Naturally, everyone would prefer to see a renewed Okee-Tantie that is self supporting from day one and year after year. Would it be a failure if it wasnt? Would there be no bene“ t to Okeechobees overall economy if it wasnt? Would a renewed Okee-Tantie, that Okeechobee could be proud of, be a zero sum game? Probably not. Many bene“ ts for Okeechobee would be derived which go far beyond the direct income produced by Okee Tantie. One need merely look at an example of a military base closing or a factory shut down to see the effect of indirect income on a local economy. Visitors and those employed at Okee-Tantie will patronize restaurants, shops, bait stores, fuel stations, groceries, ” ea markets, repair shops, as well as boat and RV stores. Folks employed at those places will buy homes raise children and pay taxes. The whole will be greater than the sum of its parts. € The BOCC does not need to reinvent the wheel. We shouldnt expect them to be experts in everything. Im fairly sure none of them have a background in the hospitality industry. Look at successful lake front and river front operations in other places. Find the very best examples. Do what they do. Give it some character. Make it something we can be proud of. It should have a draw for day visitors as well as baby boomers with 50-ft RVs. Lets have some spaces for people who still like their tents. Make it an oasis that we locals can enjoy as well and that gives us an opportunity to show our hospitality. There is plenty of this pie for everyone to have a taste. € If it becomes a bottomless pit due to mismanagement or a liability nightmare, Okee-Tantie could well be a failure. Doing something for the sake of doing something is a recipe for disaster. It needs to be done right, to minimize potential “ nancial risk for a county that has a limited tax base. If Okeechobee digs itself a hole, there arent a lot of options to bring in additional revenue. Most of Okeechobee is ag exempt, and the majority of homes are trailers that are either totally homestead exempted or of insuf“ cient assessed value to produce much revenue regardless of current property tax rates (or future increases allowed by statute). That leaves a fairly small number of sitebuilt homes in addition to local businesses, neither of which could be taxed much more without creating an exodus of the very people and businesses Okeechobee needs as a foundation for growth. The owners and staff of Chobee Play (the old bowling alley) would like to invite you to their grand opening celebration on Wednesday, July 30, at 11 a.m. A ribbon cutting will be conducted at 11 a.m. As a special treat they will be offering lane rentals for $10 in honor of the grand opening.

plan includes law enforcement, administration and dispatchers only. When asked to submit a budget for the jail, Sheriff May gave the board a ” at “ gure of approximately $5.577 million. He did not provide commissioners with a detailed budget that outlined all of the proposed expenditures for the jail. He also gave them a “ gure of about $427,000 to fund security at the Judicial Complex. When asked why he didnt give a detailed budget for the jail, the sheriff said he doesnt have to since he wont be running it when the new “ scal year begins Oct. 1. That raised the commissioners ire and they voted 5-0 to hire an attorney for a lawsuit, even though county attorney John Cassels suggested they would be better off trying to settle this outside a courtroom. I dont think the governor is going to order him to run the jail after Oct. 1, Mr. Cassels told board members at a June 26 meeting. Instead of focusing on the budget issue, the county attorney told commissioners they needed to look at the bigger picture -who w ill run the jail after Oct. 1? Youre moving toward a deadline here and I dont think its particularly helpful to the public, and the publics perception of the publics safety, to play chicken with the sheriff,Ž he said. I dont think you have the luxury of waiting to see what will happen on Sept. 30 to test his ability to give back the jail.Ž But, commissioners at a July 10 meeting decided to take the sheriff to court and force him to turn over a detailed budget as required by state statutes. Again, though, those statutes only apply in those cases where the sheriff is operating the jail. Before that decision is made a hearing will likely be held in the near future where a judge will decide if the sheriff is to continue to operate the jail until the suit is settled. County administrator Robbie Chartier said the board will fund the jails operation. The board has since hired attorney Edward Dion from the Fort Lauderdale law “ rm of Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson to represent them in their action against the sheriff. Because there is no case law in the state of Florida dealing with this situation, the outcome of this suit will be felt all across the state. If the sheriff loses, that creates major problems for those 10 sheriffs in Florida who have turned the operation of their jails over to the county. If the county loses, that will give those sheriffs who are also having budget wars with their county leaders more clout. So enters the FSA and their hiring of ANB. The FSA approached the sheriff and offered the assistance due to the larger implication of the ruling,Ž said FSA executive director Steve Casey in an e-mail response to questions posed by this newspaper. The sheriff pays his counsel and the FSA pays ANB.Ž ANB has of“ ces in Winter Park, Tampa, Tallahassee, Coral Gables and Jacksonville. The “ rm represents management in all aspects of labor relations and employment law. ANB clients include corporations of all sizes, as well as governmental organizations. Plus, said Maj. Stephen, Sheriff May has the backing of all Florida sheriffs. That should send a message to the county commission thats how serious this is. All 66 sheriffs and their legal counsels are backing the sheriff,Ž he said, in a phone interview from the FSA conference. The lawsuit case number is 14CA257.

How clean is your water? Water TreatmentInstallation Repair Sales Service204 SE 10th Avenue, Okeechobee, Florida 34974863-763.3417info@DomersInc.com 7 Okeechobee News Home Improvement July 30, 2014(STATEPOINT) No matter where you live, you want to make the most of your available living and storage space. This is especially true for residents in urban areas who typically have smaller living spaces. And urban living is on the rise. As of 2010, more than half of all people lived in an urban area, and by 2030 it is anticipated that six out of every 10 people will be living in a city, according to the World Health Organization. But less space doesnt mean that you have to go without, say experts. A few simple adjustments can help you maintain your comfort in a small home,Ž says Robin Wilson, celebrity interior designer with expertise in creating healthy spaces. There are plenty of ways to open upŽ y our living spaces to create more room.The Living RoomChoose furniture for a small living room that is appropriate for the space. For example, avoid sofas with skirts and select couches which are raised off the ” oor to create a more open look. A large, strategically placed mirror can also help create the illusion that your living room is actually much larger than it is. The same goes for lack of clutter. Be sure to keep a small space organized with a daily once-over.StorageLiving simply can go a long way toward making your home feel larger. Every season, go through your closet and toss aside items that are worn out, no longer “ t, or are out of style. Use creative storage solutions to make more space. For example, an ottoman that doubles as a trunk is a great place to store old photos and keepsakes. A bike rack that mounts to the wall can clear valuable ” oor space in your foyer. The KitchenThe kitchen is often the heart of the home, particularly if you like entertaining or love to cook. Unfortunately, kitchens can get overcrowded quickly by excessive gadgetry. If counter space is at a premium, consider highly functional appliances that have multiple uses,Ž says Wilson. For example, the Panasonic Genius NNSD681S microwave is equipped with inverter technology, which gives this kitchen essential the ability to function like an oven and ensures every dish is cooked evenly throughout. Though it is compact in size, it still maintains a spacious interior and comes with an optional trim kit that easily converts this microwave to a built-in, freeing up counter space while giving a stylish accent to cabinetry. More information can be found at www. Panasonic.com.The BathroomGive the illusion of space by decorating with pale or pastel colors on the walls and ” oor. Avoid using bolder colors, except on towels and ornamental piecesThroughout the HomeEnsure that you have lighting at ” oor, table and eye level to help limit shadows. Another trick is to use a tall lamp to draw eyes upwards and add height to the room. A small home is no excuse for feeling cramped. With a few interior design strategies in place, you can make even the smallest space feel larger in size.Tips to make the most of small spaces

10 Okeechobee News Home Improvement July 30, 2014 (StatePoint) With warm weather here, now is the time to tackle those seasonal doit-yourself projects. By getting a jump start on y our home improvement projects list youll ensure a summer full of family fun. The experts at True Value know that the best summer moments are earned. Here are a few DIY project ideas and tips from the True Value DIY Squad to help earn the satisfaction of a job well done. Y ard Clean UpCan you see it now? A sunny day, cool grass and a perfectly landscaped yard you completed in the spring. Small landscaping projects such as edging and mulching can make a huge difference in the way your yard looks. Edging offers functional bene“ ts by separating the garden from the rest of the yard, and keeps plants healthy in the gardening bed. Mulch improves the soil quality by allowing more water and air movement through the soil. Even if you live in a warm climate, your grass is likely looking brown or tan, rather than green,Ž says Danika Herrick, blogger for Gorgeous Shiny Things and a member of the True V alue DIY Squad. Yard improvement doesnt have to be daunting. Simple weekend projects like edging, mulching or even fertilizing give y our lawn the nutrients and updates it needs for strong roots and a lush green appearance that will last all summer long.ŽBackyard GatheringsExtend the dining experience outdoors … everything tastes better alfresco with family and friends. If you havent had a chance to “ re up your grill this season, dust it off and then take a close look at all of its components to make sure everything is in proper working order. Check hoses for cracks or damage, inspect burners and gas tubes and tighten any loose screws and bolts before “ ring it up for a wellearned backyard cookout.Family MemoriesPerhaps the greatest bene“ t of getting ahead of the game with do-it-yourself projects is earning extra family time in the summer. With a focus on DIY yard work now, your yard will be prepped for fun activities that will allow the whole family to get involved. Time spent with the family on an epic water balloon battle or even backyard movie nights maximizes use of the yard, keeps the family entertained and makes memorable summer moments.

It is as simple as going out to get a chest x-ray!
