The Big "0" Junior Teen
Anglers Bass Club is on a mis-
sion to clean up Iraq.
The young anglers will col-
lect the small travel-sized items
such as shampoo, conditioner,
plastic shower caps, hand lotion
and soap that are given to guests
at local hotels and motels on a
daily basis and send them to
local service men and women
stationed in Iraq and surround-
ing areas.
"Most people bring these

items home and never use
them," stated Charlie Hays,
sponsor and founder of the Big
"0" Junior Teen Anglers Bass
Club. "I, myself, have a box full
of these little bottles and soaps.
So, why not get them to people
who can use them instead of
storing them all over the house
.and then eventually throwing
them out?"
Mrs. Hays contacted House
Representative Mark Foley of the

By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
The weekly Kiwanis Club
meeting invited two guest speak-
ers with one common topic -
the new school year.
Scott Frasier of the Real Life
Children's Ranch was invited to
the meeting to accept the club's
donation and contribution of
school supplies to benefit the 24
children who live at the ranch.
An amount close to $300 in
cash was given to the ranch, as
well as several large cartons of
donated school supplies that
were collected by Kiwanis Club
members over the past several
weeks of the project.
Mr. Frasier spoke in apprecia-
tion of club members and their
efforts in the project.
"The donations of supplies
speak loudly and reflects the phe-
nomenal partnerships that Okee-
chobee clubs have with the com-
munity to benefit local children's
organizations," he said.
Another guest invited to speak

to the group was Theta Bass, the
new principal of Osceola Middle
Mrs. Bass was introduced by
club member Donna Enrico,
who stated in the introduction
that Mrs. Bass has been dedicat-
ed to teaching and working with
school children in the district
since the early 1980s.
"At Osceola Middle School we
have a motto which is, we
achieve because we believe,"
said Mrs. Bass.
She praised her great staff and
commented that many of them
have told, her that they teach
because it was their calling.
Mrs. Bass was the assistant
principal at Central Elementary
School and prior to that was at
North Elementary School for 21
Since she has only been at the
middle school for a few days in
preparation of the new school
year, she said she is still learning

She told club members that

will have 907 students who will
start the new school year. She
went on to state that in the next
year-and-a-half, the school has
plans to expand with a new
building to accommodate the
growth. The school's change
from block scheduling to an

Mrs. Bass outlined some goals
for the upcoming year beginning
with one for teaching staff mem-
bers to grow in staff develop-
"Since I have worked with ele-
mentary school students for
many years, I am not an expert.
Therefore, I am learning from
those staff members who are
already there. Every day is a learn-
ing experience," she told club
Another goal detailed by Mrs.
Bass was to assess students with
difficulties in achieving higher Okeechobee News/D. Hamilton

Deputy Sheriff Keith Stripling
of the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office recently had the oppor-
tunity to meet with the Florida

Deputy Stripling has been the
Florida Crime Prevention Associa-
tion Board Secretary for the past
three years. The Florida Crime
Prevention Association is current-
ly endorsing, promoting and
teaching a program known as
"Safe at Work". Safe at work is an
educational program that discuss-
es topics such as threat assess-
ment, workplace violence policy,
electronic security and risk assess-
ments to make employers aware
of potential dangers of violence in
the workplace and how to react
to them in hopes of preventing an
Sonitrol Corporation originally
developed the program and

asked the Florida Crime Preven-
tion Association to partner with
them to educate business owners
throughout the state.
With the Safe at Work presen-
tation taking place many times in
many areas of the state, over the
last 12 months the Attorney Gen-
eral felt it to be a very note worthy
program and wished to thank not
only Florida Crime Prevention
Association but also the Sonitrol
Corporation and the state wide
prosecutors office for their com-
bined efforts in assuring the safety
of all employees.
The Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office will be organizing a
presentation of the program for
local businesses, and anyone
wishing to participate in the pro-
gram is encouraged to contact

Ken Pruitt of the 28th District for
assistance in how to get these
packages to our troops.
"With our representatives
working on this, I'm sure the items
will reach our men and women.
They asked me if the packages
would be only for Okeechobee
troops or could they be shared
with others. I told them we would
like to share them with others, but
that our Okeechobee soldiers had
to be taken care of first," stated
Mrs. Hays.
It will be a difficult task to find
the many men and women from
Okeechobee serving overseas in
Iraq and surrounding countries.
Mrs. Hays has, therefore, asked
that anyone having a loved one
serving in those areas and wishing
them to receive these packages to
contact her with their mailing

hometown forum so visit the page as often as you would like and

You can also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour

to okeenews@newszap.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973. Com-
ments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
GREAT LOGO: By the way, the new city logo is great. How is that for

NEGATIVE COMMENTS: If you think Okeechobee is a joke, the
roads that you came in on will take you out just as easily as they
brought you in. Maybe you would be happier somewhere else, say a
deserted island? You have nothing but negative comments and it
would be nice if you didn't take up space posting them.

I APOLOGIZE: I do need to apologize for this forum is for informa-
tion and opinion on all topics, not for me to badger or make fun of the
other readers and those who choose to comment.

NUBBIN SLOUGH RAMP: I saw in the paper that the county may
work on developing a boat ramp at Nubbin Slough. While what has
happened at Taylor Creek is a shame, I think that would probably be a
better place for a public ramp. There is more room for parking and the
access road would not have to go through private property. I still think
something in the whole Taylor Creek Lodge sale stinks. I don't under-
stand how the state accepted a contract bid and then waited five years
for the payment and held to that same price. The state lost millions
on that sale and the county residents lost out as well. There should
have been something written into that contract that the price was
good for 90 days and if payment was not made, they would have to
negotiate again something like that. I still think this should be inves-
tigated because the taxpayers lost out. But a public boat ramp at Nub-
bin Slough does make sense to me.

WE'RE NO JOKE: I don't believe that I have posted anything nega-
tive someone asked about the road construction and I told them
what was going on and who is working there. I happened to know and
therefore responded. And, I was born and raised here and I am actual-
ly proud to say that Okeechobee is not a joke.

Looking Back ...
By 1917, the shoreline of the lake was ringed with fishing camps and boat docks. These docks were located on Lake
Okeechobee in 1917, and were presumably in the area known today as the lakeshore curve. The catfishing industry
began on the lake during the last decade of the 19th century. By the time the county was created in 1917, boats were
taking thousands of pounds of fish to market each week. This photo also appears in a book titled "Strolling Down Coun-
try Roads" by Twila Valentine and Betty Chandler Williamson. Plans are currently under way by the Okeechobee Histor-
ical Society to reprint the book "Strolling Down Country Roads". Recent interest in buying a copy of the book has been
increasing, and the Historical Society needs an estimate of the number of books to order. The expected cost is $35 to
$40 per copy, and the society hopes to have the books available by Christmas. If you are interested in buying a copy of
the book send your name, address and telephone number to: Betty C. Williamson, P.O. Box 249, Okeechobee, Fla.,
34973. This will not obligate you to buy the book, but you will be notified when the books are available. You are asked
to send your information to Mrs. Williamson soon. Do you have any old photos of the Okeechobee area or of Okee-
chobee citizens? If so, bring them by the Okeechobee News office, 107 S.W. 17th St., and we can copy them while you
wait. Or, you can e-mail the photo and information about the photo to okeenews@okeechobee.com.

document titled "Building on
For instance, the agency will
pay for disaster victim's funeral
expenses only if a family can
present a letter from a medical
examiner or similar authority that

the death was related to the
storm. The agency was criticized
for paying for more than 300
funerals when the official death
toll from the storm was just over
The agency will also cut rental
assistance to one month instead
of two, and then only if there is
documentation that there is a
need to be relocated during
repairs. Residents can apply for
additional assistance after the
first month if they prove the actu-
ally relocated.
Inspectors will be required to
take an on-line test before being
sent out in the field and addition-
al performance requirements will
asked of contractors who hire
inspectors. The agency is re-

emphasizing that background
checks need to be done and that
inspectors can't inspect the
homes of friends or relatives.
The agency was severely criti-
cized by Washington lawmakers
for allowing waste and fraud in
the aftermath of the 2004 storms.
A Senate committee last month
issued a report documenting sev-
eral areas that need improve-
The agency responded to the
Senate Homeland Security and
Governmental Affairs Committee
late Thursday. The document
was unavailable after business
The "Building on Success"
document to be released Friday
was based on the agency's

review of its response, as well as
suggestions made by the Senate
committee and the Department
of Homeland Security's inspector
"As is the case after every
major disaster, FEMA immediate-
ly conducted federal-state-local
meetings, in January 2005, to
identify areas for program
improvements as well as success-
ful procedures that should be
institutionalized and used nation-
ally," the document said.
Also to be released Friday is a
letter from FEMA director Mike
Brown that defends the agency's
"Trust me; nobody Monday-
morning quarterbacks our efforts
more than we do. Something we

find after almost every event:
there's more room for us to
improve," Brown wrote in the let-
ter to be posted on the agency's
Web site.
The storm season was "easi-
ly" one of the worst disasters the
agency had to respond to and it
did well under difficult circum-
stances, Brown said.
"Disappointingly, a few peo-
ple saw an opportunity to take
advantage of the system by lying
to FEMA staff and contractors in
order to make a quick buck.
These cases are a fraction of the
hundreds of thousands of storm
victims we assisted," he said.
He said while the agency is
looking at additional training and

controls, mistakes will be made
and he asked that people under-
stand the enormity of its mission
and the difficulty of responding
quickly to a disaster.
"We also continue to work
with elected federal officials in
Congress many of whom think a
solution lies in adding more
process to the process. Some of
their suggestions are right in line
with our own thoughts. Some
fresh ideas have been presented
that we will work hard to imple-
ment. Some other ideas I will
never put into practice because
they will endanger the victims,
making aid so slow we will find
ourselves back in the days of Hur-
ricane Andrew."

Crist announces $200,000 restitution

General Charlie Crist announced
that an investigation into possi-
ble price gouging following last
year's hurricanes has led to a set-
tlement that will provide more
than $200,000 in restitution for
Floridians. The target of the
investigation, Fort Walton Beach-
based Garner Construction LLC,
has agreed to cease all business
operations in the state.
Garner, a construction remod-
eling company, was alleged to
have overcharged consumers for
water mitigation and minor
home repairs. Documents
obtained through an investiga-
tive subpoena issued by the
Attorney General's Office,
showed that Garner performed
repairs on the personal property
of 61 individuals and one assisted
living facility.
The assisted living facility, Vil-

las of Gulf Breeze, was wrongly
billed approximately $54,000 for
water removal, demolition and
cleanup. For example, one
charge was for use of a crane that
allegedly was never on the prop-
erty. Under the terms of the set-
tlement, the facility will only pay
$18,000 for the actual work per-
formed. In another instance, a
senior citizen, 83 years old, in
Pensacola Beach was wrongly
billed approximately $69,000 and
now will only have to pay
$25,000 for the actual work per-
formed after the hurricane.
Under the settlement, Garner
agreed to reduce its billings by a
total of $203,658, a 22 percent
cut from what the company orig-
inal billed for the repair work.
"Florida citizens suffered seri-
ous losses during last year's hur-
ricanes and the last thing they
needed were repair companies

trying to bleed them for excess
profits," said Crist. "This settle-
ment agreement should remind
all Floridians that we will not tol-
erate profiteering." In addition,
Garner will also shut down all
business operations in Florida
and none of its out-of-state sister
companies will perform any hur-
ricane-related repairs in Florida
for five years. The company will
also reimburse the taxpayers
$10,000 to cover the costs'of the
Attorney General's investigation.
The investigation was
prompted by a number of con-
sumer complaints to the Attor-
ney General's Price Gouging Hot-
line (1-866-9-NO-SCAM). As
described in the agreement, the
probe looked into allegations
"that some of the charges billed
by Garner were considered
excessive and possibly rose to
the level of price gouging, as

defined in Florida Statute
During last year's record-set-
ting hurricane season, the Attor-
ney General's Office received
8,911 complaints through its
price gouging hotline. The office
initiated 58 formal investigations
and filed 13 price gouging law-
suits against hotels, generator
businesses, tree removal compa-
nies and other businesses.
Including the Garner settlement,
to date the Attorney General's
Office has recovered more than
$700,000 in restitution for Florida
consumers. Other investigations
and settlement negotiations are

struction is available at:

Reflections from the Pulpit

By Alex Marquez
Wisdom... it's something that
everyone needs, but we rarely
think to ask God for it. A friend
told me recently that my five-year-
old and three-year-old sons were

extraordinary in that they obeyed
and understood concepts when
taught. I would like to take credit
for that great compliment, but I
can't. You see, ever since my five-
year-old was in the womb, my
wife and I prayed that he, and our

other children as each came
along, would have Godly wisdom
beyond their years. My friend is
right. My children are obedient
and they do understand advanced
concepts, but it's not because
we're the best parents in the uni-
verse. Well, maybe my wife is.
I totally attribute their behavior
and' comprehension to God. It's
He who gives wisdom and under-
standing. Check out Proverbs 2:6,
"For the LORD gives wisdom and
from His mouth come knowledge,

and understanding." Or how
about James 1:5, "If any of you
lacks wisdom, he should ask God,
Who gives generously to all with-
out finding fault, and it will be
given to him."
We should all ask God for His
wisdom. After all, He said that He
would give it to us in abundance.
So the next time you pray, ask
God for the wisdom He so willing-
ly wants to give you. Then, you'll
have the power you need while
