OCF/R contains blaze: Victim: 'God bless them'

Fire spread through the doublewide mobile home of Virginia Perez early Sunday
evening in Playland Park. The home was completely gutted, leaving 17 people home-
less.

Blaze leaves family homeless


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Virginia Tyson Perez had just
returned home from church Sun-
day evening around 7 p.m. and
was getting ready to help her
granddaughter prepare dinner.
Suddenly her son-in-law Harvey
Thin Elk came running into the
kitchen yelling for water. By the
time Mrs. Perez responded to his
plea, the entire west end of her
mobile home was in flames.
As the family rushed to leave the
home, Mrs. Perez's daughter
Chrystal Tyson ran next door to her
brother Stacy Tyson's home for
help. Mr. Tyson grabbed two large
fire extinguishers and raced across
the yard to his mother's 4-year old
mobile home. But, the fire was so-
intense at that point that the extin-
guishers had no effect on the
flames.
His brother James was almost
overcome by the smoke as he
attempted to fight his way into the
trailer to look for one of the babies.
The Okeechobee County
Fire/Rescue Department arrived
shortly after being called to the
scene and went right to work in an
attempt to contain the flames.
'After they arrived, we tried to
make sure that all the kids were
accounted for, but my daughter
kept asking where her baby was,"
explained Mrs. Perez. "Without a
second thought, two firemen dove
through the bedroom window into

Kiwanis marks 90 years


By Maria Chandler
Okeechobee News
Today marks the 90th
anniversary of Kiwanis.
To honor the anniversary,
the local club celebrated by
having cake and listening to
the history of Kiwanis Interna-
tional.
Jim Cole spoke about Kiwa-
nis, and Red Larson quizzed
fellow members on the history
of the local club.
Mr. Cole is a member of the
Kiwanis Club in Elwood, Ind.
Kiwanis International was
not formed until Kiwanis clubs
formed in Canada, said Mr.
Cole. Today, Kiwanis is in over
90 countries throughout the
world.


At first, Kiwanis was not
open to women, but they are
now invited to join. He said up
north, 60 to 70 percent of the
Kiwanis membership are
women.
He added that if it was not
for women a lot of the clubs
would be gone.
Mr. Larson then spoke
about the history of the local
club, which was formed in
October of 1971.
He said 25 members were
needed to start the club, which
was sponsored by the
Indiantown Kiwanis Club.
The Kiwanis Club of Okee-
chobee has now grown to 82
members.
Mr. Larson said the Kiwanis
Club of Okeechobee was the


first local civic club to sponsor
sizeable scholarships to gradu-
ating seniors from Okee-
chobee High School. The local
club sponsors the Key Club at
Okeechobee High School and
the Builder's Club at the mid-
dle school level.
Among the various projects
backed by the local club, Mr.
Larson said he likes the Christ-
mas party given to some of the
clients at the Eckerd Youth
Development Center.
Other projects put on by the
local club includes the pan-
cake breakfast, radio auction,
Grad Nite and Santa in the
Park.
The Kiwanis Club of Okee-
chobee meets every Thursday
at noon at Fat Boys Restaurant.

Building collapse
blamed on company
HOBE SOUND A company
in charge of constructing concrete
walls and ceilings for a town
house project is primarily to blame
for a July building collapse that
killed two workers, federal safety
investigators said.
Macs Construction and Con-
crete Inc., which was building
three-story structures in the Tran-
quility project in Hobe Sound,
faces up to $67,200 in fines for
multiple violations.
Gregorio Ruiz Aviles, 31, and
Lauro Marquez Hernandez, 23,
were killed and five other men
were injured when a three-story
building caved in while they were
pouring concrete into metal forms
designed to create walls, decks
and ceilings.
Macs' owner, Richard Mecca-
riello, 39, was arrested in Novem-
ber on charges of failing to carry
insurance for workers on various
job sites. If convicted of the third-
degree felony, Meccariello faces up
to five years in prison.

Teen dies during
baseball workout
TAMPA A 17-year-old high
school baseball player collapsed
and died after completing a mile
run while preparing for the sea-
son, authorities said.
Matthew Miulli, a junior at
Alonso High School, collapsed
Wednesday during preseason
workouts and was rushed to Town
and Country Hospital, where he
died, said Mark Hart, Hillsborough
County school district spokesman.
The cause of death was not
known, said Debbie Carter,
spokeswoman for the Hillsbor-
ough County Sheriff's Office. She
said Miulli had a "pre-existing
medical condition," which may
have contributed to his death.
Miulli would not have been
required to submit a medical
release until Monday, when the
regular baseball practice season
begins, officials said. Physicals are
not required for conditioning ses-
sions before the first day of prac-
tice.

Man sent to prison
for part in 9/11 scam
FORT LAUDERDALE A Fort
Lauderdale man who collected
$68,000 after claiming his domes-
tic partner had died in the 2001
attacks on the World Trade Center
has been sentenced to 2 1/2 years
in prison.
Patric Ian Henn, 29, said he
would pay back the American Red
Cross for the benefits he received
after claiming to have a partner
who died when the twin towers
collapsed.
The Red Cross provided Henn
with a hotel room and an apart-
ment after the attacks along with
at least $44,000 in checks, includ-
ing one to pay for the funeral of his
non-existent partner.
He pleaded guilty last week to'
one count of grand theft.
Circuit Court Judge Marc Gold
also ordered Henn to serve 12 1/2
years on probation and to pay
back the American Red Cross in
full.
Former UF star
jailed in Seattle
SEATTLE Former NBA and
Florida Gators star Vernon
Maxwell was jailed in Washington
state after his arrest as a fugitive on
an outstanding arrest warrant
from Florida, authorities said.
Jail officials ih King County,
Wash., confirmed Wednesday that
Maxwell, 39, was being held pend-
ing transportation back to Florida.
He has waived extradition.
Maxwell was transferred to
Florida's Alachua County from
Georgia in April 2004 to face a


felony charge of failure to pay
more than $160,000 in child sup-
port for his 16-year-old son with
Myra Jenkins of Gainesville, Fla. He
was released April 20 on $20,000
bond and ordered not to leave the
county until the case was.resolved.
A warrant was issued for
Maxwell's arrest on Dec. 9 when
he failed to appear for a case-man-
agement hearing. He was booked
into jail in King County on Jan. 12
and was being held without bail
pending extradition.
Jenkins told The Gainesville
Sun that Maxwell has not made a
direct child support payment since
May2001.

the room where we thought the
baby was. It turned out that one of
the other grandchildren had gotten
the baby out, but I couldn't believe
the bravery of the firemen."
"It took three hours to put the
fire out," said Stacy Tyson. "My
mother lost everything, but no one
was hurt. The entire family would
like to thank all the firefighters who
worked on this fire for the superb
job they did. They went above the


call of duty. We thank them from
the bottom of our hearts and God
bless them."
Mrs. Perez lost all her material
possessions. The house is a total
loss; all the furnishings, clothing,
her collection of angels, medica-
tion and $480 worth of food was
reduced to ashes. But, her family
was safe.
"The American Red Cross has
given us a voucher for four days in
a motel until we can make other
arrangements for our family," said
Mrs. Perez. "The Clock Restaurant
was kind enough to give us food.


We will have our family staying
with friends and other family mem-
bers until we can figure out what to
do.
"I had cancer surgery just three
days before the fire and still have
the stitches in my face. All the med-
ication I take was ruined. I just
don't know what to do first," she
added.
The cause of the fire is still
under investigation.
A benefit account to help this
family has been set up at Big Lake
National Bank in the name of Vir-
ginia Tyson Perez.

Dollar Tree
"I was wondering when the Dollar Tree is going to re-open. It
doesn't seem to be any work going on there." (Editor's Note:
Thanks for calling. According to company representatives, they
are planning to reopen in early February.)
Speed Limit
"This is in regard to the speed limit. I don't think it would do
any good to lower the speed limit when they aren't enforcing the
speed limit that we already have. Also, they don't know what a
stop sign is they think that it is to slow down."
Tomato Lover
"I noticed after reading your article on.the price of tomatoes -
seeing that they are plentiful now, they have not lowered their
prices once that article came out the prices on tomatoes in all
the grocery stores, dropped like a dirty shirt. I want to thank you
very much for putting that article in because, as a tomato lover, I
appreciate any help I can get."
No Growth
"For you people that want growth so bad, go spend the day on
the coast and see how you like that. Maybe you should move over
there and leave us and our little town alone."
Cow Sense?
"I received this e-mail from a friend, and just had to pass it on
as I am sure folks in Okeechobee will appreciate it. All I need to
know in life, I learned from a cow. 1. Wake up in a happy mooo-
d.; 2. Don't cry over spilled milk.; 3. When chewing your cud,
remember: There's no fat, no calories, no cholesterol, and no
taste!; 4. The grass is green on the other side of the fence.; 5. Turn
the udder cheek and mooo-ve on.; 6. Seize every opportunity and
milk it for all its worth.; 7. It's better to be seen and not herd.; 8.
Honor thy fodder and thy mother and all your udder relatives.; 9.
Never take any bull from anybody.; 10. Always let them know
who's the bossy.; 11. Stepping on copies brings good luck.; 12.
Black and white is always an appropriate fashion statement."

FLW pros vying for $100,000 payday this weekend


By Mark Young
Special to the Okeechobee News
The 2005 FLW fishing series is
off and running, as more than 400
anglers spread across the vast
expanse of Lake Okeechobee.
The final two days of the tour-
nament will be Friday and Satur-
day, Jan. 21 and 22. The weigh-ins
on these two days will be held at
the Clewiston Wal-Mart store.
The Big '0' is a favorite of
many of the professional anglers
involved in the FLW series and
famous for its 8- to 9-pound large-
mouth bass.
During the Everstart fishing
tournament, launched out of
Clewiston's Roland and Mary Ann
Martin's Marina a couple of weeks
ago, several one and two-day
weight records were shattered.


While the 2004 hurricane sea-
son certainly took its toll on prop-
erty, it apparently has stirred up
the monsters in the dark waters of
Lake Okeechobee. One 10.5-
pound bass and several 8- to 9-
pound bass were brought to the
scales during the Everstart tourna-
ment, which is a sub-division of
the FLW series.
Like the Everstart tournament,
the FLW series is broken down
into two divisions the profes-
sional and co-angler divisions.
But unlike the Everstart series, the
FLW anglers are fishing for a lot
more money.
First place will earn a cool
$100,000, with second taking
home $36,000 and third place
paying $25,000 on the profession-
al side.
The tournament pays out 75


places, with 51-75 earning some
expense money iii the form of
$2,750. Big bass money is also
available and that 10-pounder
may be worth an additional $750.
The Roland and Mary Ann
Martin Marina is the host site of
this year's tournament and where
the first two days of weigh-in will
occur. The anglers will all be vying
for a top 10 spot, which will
secure them a place in the final
two days of competition.
Beginning on the third day, the
top 10 finalists in the professional
division and the top 10 finalists in
the co-angler division will go
head-to-head against their divi-
sion opponents starting from
scratch. The most weight after the
third and fourth day will take
home a large payday and a first
place points total in the series.


The final two days of weigh-in
will be held at Clewiston's Wal-
Mart. The Fun Zone will also be
open during the final two clays
and hungry spectators can enjoy
the hot dog and chili sale by the
Clewiston Lion's Club. Pepsi has
stepped up to donate 240 cans of
Pepsi to help the Lion's Club
make the sale a success.
Last year, Clewiston's Scott
Martin finished second at the FLW
championship tournament,
which took place in Pell, Ala. Mar-
tin ended up finishing the season
in 32nd place, but made well over
$200,000 for the year, with his
great finish at the championships.
Okeechobee's Koby Krieger
struggled at the championships,
finishing' 47th, but still ended the
season in 22nd place overall.

Clewiston's Scott Martin holds up one of his five-bass limit
after coming back from a 4-pound deficit to win last August's
FLW bass tournament. Martin is steadily climbing in the FLW
rankings after taking second at last year's championship
tournament.


JV wrestlers prepare

for conference tourney


The Brahman junior varsity
wrestling team recently traveled
to Lake Region High School to
compete in a tournament with
their eyes toward their confer-
ence tournament.
No team points were scored
in this tournament but everyone
was able, to. get valuable mat
time, as all had three or four
matches. -
Those competing for the
Brahmans were: Ricky Bush -
119 lbs., Caleb Smith 135 lbs.,


Nick Clements -135 lbs., Jeremy
Hoglo 140 lbs., Tommy Camp-
bell 189 lbs., and Justin
Maxwell-215 lbs.
"Even though no team points
were scored in the tournament,
they are coming along nicely as
the year continues," said Okee-
chobee head coach Bruce Jahn-
er.
