Setting priorities and policies,
and the use of the agri-civic cen-
ter were topics that generated a
great deal of discussion at Thurs-
day's meeting of the Okee-
chobee County Commissioners.
Joey Hoover, executive direc-
tor of the economic council,
addressed the board concerning
priorities and polices in handling
county business. He suggested
that some type of prioritization of
direction be given to county staff.
Mr. Hoover mentioned recla-
mation of mines, landscaping for
commercial sites and garbage


up in commission meetings but
there was never any action
taken.
Mr. Hoover said that at each
meeting staff gets direction but
six'or eight months later, nothing
has been done.
He suggested using some
type of "red flag" system to track
assignments after a reasonable
length of time. He suggested a
system of prioritization and
deadlines for reports.
Mr. Hoover mentioned that a

School will move
from adult stores
TAMPA Hillsborough Coun-
ty's school district has found a
new site for a school for emotion-
ally disturbed students that was
being built in a neighborhood
containing strip clubs and X-rated
video stores.
Construction on Carver Excep-
tional Center had been stopped
last month after county commis-
sioner Kathy Castor told officials
the location violated county
restrictions on adult businesses.
The school was scheduled to
open in August to serve about 150
emotionally disturbed middle and
high school students.

Haitians to dismiss
excessive force suit
NAPLES -- Two Immokalee
residents have agreed to dismiss a
federal lawsuit that accused
deputies of using excessive force
and violating their .civil rights in a
traffic stop, federal records show.
Raphael Jolis, 65, and Jeanne
Jean, 48, had said in the nine-
count civil complaint that they
were roughed up, held for a long
period of time and then either
released without any reason given
for the traffic stop or, in the case of
Jolis, given a traffic citation that
was later dismissed.
The suit alleged false imprison-
ment, excessive force, intentional
infliction of emotional distress,
civil rights violations and negli-
gence on the part of the deputies.

I-10 bridge
to be rebuilt
PENSACOLA -Work to build
a new Interstate 10 bridge in the
western Florida Panhandle to
replace the one damaged by Hur-
ricane Ivan is expected to begin
this spring, federal and state offi-
cials said.
Construction on the bridge
connecting Escambia and Santa
Rosa counties is set to begin after
the contract for the $325 million
project is accepted on April 1, offi-
cials said Wednesday.
The bridge over Escambia Bay
was heavily damaged on Sept. 16.
Traffic has been restored on the
two west-bound lahes but is limit-
ed to a single east-bound lane.
About 8,000 trucks travel that
stretch of 1-10 daily along with
thousands of commuters and
other travelers.

Man runs over
burglary suspect
WEST PALM BEACH A man
chased down two suspected bur-
glars in his sports utility vehicle
and ran over one of them after.
they had pulled their car over on
Interstate 95.
*The suspected burglars had
sped away in a Nissan Maxima
from an apartment complex
Wednesday afternoon, just as a
woman arrived to discover her
apartment had been broken into,
West Palm Beach police spokes-
woman Dena Kimberlin said.
A man who also lives in the
complex, identified by witnesses
as the woman's boyfriend,
chased the suspects in his Chevro-
let Suburban, eventually follow-
ing them south on 1-95, Kimberlin
said.
The Maxima then stopped for
an unknown reason alongside I-
95 just north of Palm Beach Lakes
Boulevard and a man stepped out
from the passenger side, authori-
ties said.
The man was struck and killed
by a "possible Suburban vehicle,"
a Florida Highway Patrol
spokesman said.


Robbery suspect
hangs self in jail
GAINESVILLE A Canadian
bank robbery suspect apparently
hanged himself inside his cell at
the Alachua County Jail, officials
said.
Jailers found the body of John
A. McPherson, 42, of Niagara
Falls, Ontario, just hours before he
was scheduled to appear
Wednesday in federal court for
the Nov. 16 robbery of the First
National Bank of Alachua. He
apparently strangled himself
using a makeshift rope made of
clothing attached to the cell's top
bunk.


Escaped inmate captured;



now faces murder charges
By Patty Brant
Special to the
Okeechobee News I.


LABELLE Just one day after
the capture of escaped inmate 19-
year-old James Robert Henderson
the Hendry County Sheriff's Office
added first-degree murder, armed
burglary and grand theft auto to his
escape charge.
At a press conference Jan. 6,
Hendry County Sheriff Ronnie Lee
said authorities are now officially
linking Henderson to the murder of
well-known LaBelle businessman
DannyWoosley.
Henderson escaped from a
work detail on the Hendry County
Jail grounds on Thursday, Dec. 30.
Mr. Woosley was found dead at his
residence within just a few hours.
Sheriff Lee said they believe
Henderson shed his black and
white striped trustee uniform and
walked to the Woosley residence
on S.R. 29S. There,. officials allege
he broke into the arms safety room,
in which Mr. Woosley kept an array
of guns and knives he collected.
Law enforcement officials theo-
rize that Mr. Woosley arrived home
unexpectedly and surprised Hen-
derson. Sheriff Lee said the intruder
fired four or five times. They believe
they have recovered the murder
weapon.
Henderson is being kept alone
in a cell at the Hendry County Jail.
Sheriff Lee said he will ask a sepa-
rate agency to investigate how
Henderson could have escaped.
Since 1911, Jennings Hardware

place many residents would stop in
early every morning for coffee and
to take in the local gossip.
The victim's brother, Larry
Woosley, has acted as spokesper-
son for the family. He said the fami-
ly is glad that Henderson has been
caught and is off the street.
"It makes it easier," he said,
adding that he could not speak for
the entire family on this point, but
for himself, he wants his brother's
killer punished to the fullest.
State Attorney Steve Russell has
asked Gov. Jeb Bush to assign
another state attorney to handle the
Henderson case to negate any

appearance of impropriety since
Henderson's mother is an employ-
ee of the State Attorney's Office.
Henderson had been serving
concurrent sentences on two
counts of grand theft auto when he
escaped. He was sentenced to 364
days, with a total of 124 days of
credit for time served. He only had
about four months left on his sen-
tence when he escaped.
In July 2003, Henderson had
been sentenced to two years state
probation for stealing a .38 special
Smith & Wesson handgun from the
Woosley residence, where he had
stayed for several months.

last year and there is still no mecha-
nism for enforcing it.
County Administrator George
S Long said that that in the last few
" months, because of the hurricanes,
county staff has "juggled a large
number of balls." He said they have
been dealing with storm recovery
as well as routine county business.
In order to increase efficiency
commissioners decided to abolish
" the practice of having department
heads report to commissioners on
the afternoon of the first meeting of
the month. Instead, they decided
that time would be spent on priori-
ty projects.
Commissioner Gene Woods
noted that the current practice took
department heads away from their
jobs for half a day.
Mr. Long noted that because of
growth of the county, staff is not
able to handle things in a timely
manner. With the heavy load staff is
-- carrying, he said it would be hard
to establish priorities and proce-
dures.
At this point Bennett Yielding of
o the One Stop Career Center noted
there is grant money available to
put storm-displaced persons to
work. He said the county has been
l using this grant to hire people for
cleanup. However, he continued,
there is still grant money available
that could be used to hire people to
prepare procedures and operating
rules.
"If we can get a good operating
manual, the efficiency will pay for
it," said Commissioner Ray Domer.

Turning to another topic, Mr.
Hoover said that the Okeechobee
County Agri-civic Center is a
"tremendous asset." However, he
said there were no goals or objec-
tives for its operations. He suggest-
ed a public hearing to get input
from the public.
Mr. Hoover advocated getting
the gossip concerning the agri-civic
center out of the coffee shops and
into a public meeting. He added
that some of the stories he had
heard were "absolutely laughable."
"Are we using it to the full
potential?" he asked.
Commissioner Clif Betts sug-
gested that persons with com-
plaints or suggestions about the
agri-civic center problems
address them in writing to Mr.
Long. He expressed fear that a
public meeting would turn into a
"lynch mob scene."
"We've got it, let's use it," Mr.
Hoover said, adding that it was
almost a year since the first event
in the facility and it had received
little use since then.
"I don't think the facility is an
easy sell," Commissioner Elvie
Posey asserted. He said that the
facility is designed primarily for
equestrian purposes, which limits
its use.
"We're doing everything but
giving it away," said Commissioner
Woods.
Mr. Hoover also asked about the
progress toward creating a fair
board a topic that was brought
up six or eight months ago.
Commission Chairman John
Abney suggested that an advisory
fair committee be considered at
the next meeting.

Council assists agencies with violent crime cases


In 1993, the Florida Violent
Crime Council was established to
financially assist local law enforce-
ment agencies in extraordinary
violent crime cases. After Florida's
crime trend slightly shifted from
violent crime to drug crimes, the
2001 Legislative Session approved
the expansion of the Council to
include funding for drug investiga-


tions. Renamed the Violent Crime
and Drug Control Council, the
Council now has the ability to pro-
vide supplemental funding to local
and state law enforcement agen-
cies working violent crime, major
drug and money laundering inves-
tigations, and victim/witness pro-
tection and relocation efforts. The
Legislature supports the funding of


the Council on a year-to-year basis.
During 2004, the Council pro-
vided supplemental funding total-
ing $2,356,936 to 82 cases in sup-
port of nearly 100 Florida law
enforcement agencies. Statewide,
these funds supported 41 vic-
tim/witness protection cases, 27
major drug trafficking and money
laundering investigations and 14


violent crime investigations. Suc-
cess stories associated with these
funding efforts have been high-
lighted in the 2004 Violent- Crime
and Drug Control Council Annual
Report. Local law enforcement
agencies are dependant on the
funding provided by the Council
to work those heinous crimes that
overwhelm law enforcement


resources and significantly impact
a community's sense of safety.
The funding also supports long-
term multi-jurisdictional investi-
gations targeting those organiza-
tions and individuals that are
most dangerous to Florida's citi-
zens and visitors.
The 2004 Violent Crime and
Drug Control Council Annual


Report is located on the FDLE
Web site:
www.fdle.state.fl.us/publications.
Law enforcement agencies that
need more information on the
activities of the Council and fund-
ing opportunities can go to the

4 OPINION The Okeehobee News, Friday, January14, 2005


Speak Out

Exercise your right to free speech. Speak out is a free 24-hour
opinion line. Call and express your opinion or ask question about
public issues. You are not required to leave your name. While we
want you to speak out freely, the newspaper reserves the right to
edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness. To speak out
call (863)467-2033, fax (863)763-5901 or e-mail:
okeenews@okeechobee.com. You can also mail submissions to
Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.

Permits
"Structures that weren't permitted structures blew into my
structure and were the cause of most of the damage to my proper-
ty. Freedom does not mean the right to assemble material in a fash-
ion that allows it to blow around and damage other properties. The
word permit should say it all. The residents of this county have an
agency that permits all to improve their property in a way that will
not cause damage to the rest of us."

Animal Abuse
"I want to know why there aren't any laws on the reservation
about animal abuse. There are a bunch of cases of animal abuse
where people aren't feeding or taking care of their animals and are
letting them starve to death. I want to know why there there's not a
law against that. Is there anybody I can contact that could go out
there and save these poor animals that are eating each other
because they are starving in cages. If there is anyone that could
help, let me know." (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. You should
call (863) 763-0271 and tell them of your concerns.)

Morals
"Last night the news commentators were asking what is wrong
with the world that all these disasters are happening. I'll tell them,
morals. I heard that 20 years ago and it is all coming true."

Manufacturing company
"I hope the manufacturing company the county is considering
is located far from home."

Pediatric Dentists
"I wish that some of these dentists locally would accept kids
insurance and accept new patients. That would be helpful to par-
ents so we wouldn't have to drive one to two hours to go to den-
tists located out of town."

Foreign Policy
"You did a good job on that Jeb Bush/George W. article but you
left out the most important thing: it cost us taxpayers a lot of
money to send Jeb over there to set a foreign policy. I warned you
taxpayers, and you paid a big price for Jeb Bush campaigning for
foreign policy."

Ag center
"I hear they are looking for people to be ticket takers at the new
agri-civic center for events. What do we need employees for if
there are no events? What does the director of the agri-center do
when there are no events?" (Editor's Note: Thanks for calling. One
of the primary tasks for the director is to get the word out about the
agri-civic center, promote it and try to book events to be held
there.)

That Smell
"I live in the southwest section of town by the freshman campus
and during the evening and nights I am forced to shTit the doors
and shut the windows. We called the water authority thinking that
the awful smell was due to a backup in the sewage system, when
an employee of the water company explained that where he lives
in Okee-Tantie the smell forces them to shut their windows as well.
I read in the paper some time ago the landfill was being fined
everyday for being overfilled with garbage, but I just can't believe
that the problem isn't being corrected by now and there aren't any-
more updates as to what is being done. Are we just supposed to
live in a stinky town now? I feel terribly sorry for the people living
on or near Dark Hammock Road and Berman Road."



Crime Prevention Tip

Do not open your door to salespeople selling vacuum cleaners,
household cleaners or.other such items.

Letter to the Editor


Above all else,
support our troops
As a man now in his 40s, I look
back and realize just how fortu-
nate I have been and the opportu-
nities I have had in serving in
many occupations.
For instance, earlier in my life I
served in the U.S. Army as a com-
bat engineer and even had the
opportunity to see and visit a few
European countries while posted
in Neu-Ulm, Germany, guarding
the Pershing missile.
I can still remember when we
would come rumbling through
those small German villages in
our tanks, and I reflect upon how
the children would wave at us
and see the elders smile at us in
perhaps just knowing we were
there to protect freedom what
a feeling sitting at the turret as a
tank commander knowing that I
was there to represent not just the
U.S. but freedom itself.
Sometimes I wish everyone
could experience that feeling I
know cannot be expressed in
words.
Now, over the years I have held
other positions and job titles from
an orderly in a nursing home to a
corrections officer, an electrician,
a construction supervisor, a car
salesman, a life safety specialist
selling security systems, and even
owned and operated my own ren-
ovation company in Atlanta, Ga.
But as I have aged and
matured somewhat I realize that
without young men like me -


serving his country for the sake of
freedom I would not have had
the opportunity to have served in
these other positions and proba-
bly would not be able to write this
letter to express my right of free
speech.
I guess what I am trying to say
is, I am not trying to take away the
value of those other jobs and
occupations but to express to you
and remind myself how impor-
tant it is to serve to protect all of
our freedom.
Whether or not you support
the invasion of Iraq is a separate
issue, but keep in mind that the
global threat against freedom is
always there and freedom should
always be America's number one
priority. Whether the threats are
from terrorists, dictators, bad for-
eign policies or just bad people it
is our duty as Americans to make
sure that freedom perseveres
through it all.
And please always remember
this: a true patriot of freedom
always puts freedom first; always
questions the integrity and agen-
da of his/her government; and
always, always keeps a watchful
eye on anything that threatens it.
So whether you agree or dis-
agree with what is happening in
Iraq, that is a question of foreign
policy. But always support our
troops because, believe me, they
are proud to be part of a team that
represents the greatest thing
known to mankind freedom.

children. Please contact Karissa.
