LAKE OKECHOBEE WATER RELEASES
Keep the Water Release Valve in the ‘Closed’ position.
The issue here is not finding an alternative place to dump the water --- there are plenty of great solutions on the table. The Okeechobee problem is a people issue (read Swamp!). There is a person at the Army Corps of Engineers who has the authority to ‘Open the Valve,’ or keep it closed. The simple solution is to ‘encourage’ the authority person to keep the valve in the ‘Closed’ position. Once it is clear to the authority person that opening the valve is no longer a legal option, then the Corps will be forced to implement one of the fine options we have available for resolution of the Okeechobee problem.
SECURE OUR SCHOOLS
The above procedures should be sufficient to protect a school of @ 1,000 students from practically any small scale attack; and at the same time, minimize the exposure to students from the impact of a ‘rescue’ gone wrong. If there is any concern about the cost for these necessary enhancements (@ $5,000 per metal detector, @ $40,000 annual salary per security guard), keep in mind that most government buildings already employee ‘taxpayer-paid-for’ security procedures similar to those outlined above.
