Two men accused of murder


28-year-old man shot
in DeBerry Gardens

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Two men are currently in cus-
tody and have been charged in
Wednesday's shooting death of
an Okeechobee man.
Angel Pulido, 28, N.W. Sev-
enth St., was shot in the upper
chest while standing near the
front door of his home, accord-
ing to investigators.
"He died pretty much instant-
ly," said Detective Ted Van De-
man of the Okeechobee County


Sheriff's Office (OCSO).
Charged with the March
18 shooting are Brad Cardell
Boswell, 27, S.W. 86th Ave.,
Okeechobee, and Hugo Fernan-
do Lopez-Martinez, 18, E. 127th
Ave., Tampa. Both men have
been booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail on charges of
first degree murder and armed
burglary with assault. Bond for
the two men had not been set as
of newspaper deadline.
According to Detective Van
Deman, Boswell and Lopez-Mar-
tinez knocked on the front door
of Pulido's three-bedroom, two-
bath home around noon. Then,
not long after opening the door,


Pulido was shot with a medium
caliber handgun.
The detective said one of the
men also shot Pulido's blue pit
bull, Fatboy, in the head. The 90-
pound dog left the front room of
the house and was found dead
in another room of the concrete
block home.
After the shooting, Boswell
and Lopez-Martinez reportedly
took an undisclosed amount of
money and drugs then fled out
the back door of the home. De-
tective Van Deman said the mon-
ey was kept in a gallon plastic jar
and was primarily coins.

City to fund


plan to boost


local economy


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Which came first, the chick
en or the egg? The Okeecho-
bee City Council faced a similar
question at their meeting on
Tuesday evening, March 17, as
they debated supporting the
economic development pro-
gram proposed by Okeecho-
bee Main Street.
The proposed economic
program is to designed to ex-
pand local businesses and at-
tract new businesses under the
leadership of a full time eco-
nomic development director.
"We believe there is a need
to be proactive," said Mark


Smith as he presented the pro-
gram to the council. He said the
benefits of the program would
be "many fold." The program
is designed to increase the tax
base and increase payrolls and
profits. One of the goals is to
bring in industry that will pro-
duce products to be sold out of
town to bring in new money.
At first the funding would
come from both private and
government sources. However,
the goal is to phase out gov
ernment funding over a two
or three year period as private
funding increases. Councilman
Lowery Markham said he did

Two story home


damaged by fire


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
A two story home at 3422
S.E. 25th Street was significant-
ly damaged on Tuesday after a
fire broke out while the resident
of the home played basketball
nearby, Okeechobee County
Firemen said.
Lt. Robert Mears report said
$125,000 in property damage
and $25,000 in damage to per-
sonal possessions was reported
in the blaze that broke out just
after 3 p.m.
One unit and three firemen
from Okeechobee County Fire
Rescue and a crew from the
Okeechobee City Fire Depart-
ment responded to find smoke
existing out the east window of
the home.
Lt. Mears said there was se-
vere smoke and heat inside the
home when crews made their
way inside to fight the blaze.


An estimated 200 gallons of
water was used to extinguish
the flames.
The occupant was outside
playing basketball and said no
one had been inside the home
for 30 to 45 minutes before the
flames broke out.
"He didn't know about the
fire until the window broke
out," Lt. Mears added.
Firemen were on the scene
close to two hours Tuesday.
There were no injuries re-
ported in the fire. The State Fire
Marshall was notified to inves-
tigate the cause and the origin
of the blaze. The American Red
Cross also responded to assist
the family.
Lt. Mears said both floors of
the home received significant
heat, and smoke damage. The
home is owned by George Mar-
shall Sr. of Okeechobee.

heard a total of 12 cases, imposed
fines in two of those cases, tabled
two cases and recommended re-

fine.
George and Kathy Hauser re-

Pair arrested in middle of alleged drug deal


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Investigators say they arrested
a man and woman in the middle
of an apparent drug deal while
executing a search warrant on an
Okeechobee home.
Arrested were Gerardo Garcia,
22, N.W Fourth St., Okeechobee,
and Ruth B. Howling-Moore, 35,
S.E. 44th Ave., Okeechobee.
Garcia was arrested Tuesday,
March 17, on felony charges of
purchase of a controlled sub-
stance (oxycodone), possession
of a controlled substance (oxy-
codone) and trafficking in a con-
trolled substance (oxycodone).
He was also arrested on a misde-
meanor charge of possession of
drug paraphernalia.
Garcia was booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail under a
bond of $41,000.
Howling-Moore was arrested
on a felony charge of sale of a con-
trolled substance (oxycodone).
She was booked into the county
jail under a bond of $10,000. Jail
records indicate she has since
posted bond.
An arrest report by an
Okeechobee Narcotics Task Force
detective states that a search war-
rant was executed on Garcia's
home around 8:18 p.m. Tuesday
with the help of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office Special
Response Team (SRT).
As task force detectives en-
tered the home they reportedly
saw Garcia and Howling-Moore
in the middle of what appeared to
be a drug transaction. The arrest
report states Garcia had a large
sum of cash in one hand and pills
in the other.
The pills, continued the report,
were later identified as 15 mg
oxycodone pills.
According to the detective's
arrest report, Howling-Moore
was allegedly "... in the process
of selling 60 of her oxycodone

pills to Garcia for $300." The re-
port goes on to state that she had
been selling him pills for about
two months.
The detective went on to state
that Garcia, who does not have
a prescription for oxycodone,
would then sell the pills for a
profit.
During a search of the home
the detective said a metal safe
containing a.22 caliber hand-
gun and 11.8 grams of 15 mg
oxycodone pills was found in a


bedroom. The detective went on
to state that a sawed-off shotgun
and .22 caliber ammunition were
found under a mattress.
According to the report, when
detectives searched Garcia's per-
son they found the keys to the
safe in which the handgun and
oxycodone pills were found.
Howling-Moore was found to
be in possession of a prescrip-
tion bottle with her name on the
container. Inside the bottle were
15 mg oxycodone pills, stated the
detective's report.
The report goes on to state that
Garcia is unemployed.
A local pharmacist identified
the seized pills as oxycodone,
added the report.


and were given until April 16, to
come into compliance or face a
possible fine of up to $250 for ev
ery day of noncompliance:
James and Jessica Wilkerson
had been cited by code enforce-
ment officer Blanca Saucedo for
not having a building permit for
a pole barn they are building and
having an old refrigerator on their
7814 N.W. 95th Court property
which is considered a safety haz-
ard for children.
According to Mrs. Saucedo,
Maria Anselmo has done some
cleanup, on her S.W Second Way
property but full compliance has
not been achieved.
Timothy and Jamie Pritch-
ett had been cited for having a
burned structure on their S.E.
26th Street.
Teresa Ledford Lightsey had
been cited for having overgrowth
and an accumulation of debris,
inoperable vehicles and trash


was finally able to remove the
substance, the report stated.
The substance was field tested
and indicated a positive result for
the presence of cocaine, said Of-
ficer Morgan.
The report does not indicate
if the driver of the vehicle was is-
sued a traffic citation for the mal-
functioning taillight.


Three


charged


with


poaching

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
MOORE HAVEN Three Lee
County residents were arrested in
Glades County and booked into
the Glades County Jail for alleg-
edly poaching alligators.
Joshua Todd, 18, Alva, Natalee
M. Grant, 18, Lehigh Acres, and a
17-year-old male juvenile were all
arrested on seven misdemeanor
counts of taking and possessing
American alligators.
Records at the Glades County
Jail indicate that Todd's bond was
set at $1,750 and Grant's bond
was set at $1,250. Both have since
posted bond and were released.
The juvenile was turned over to
his parents.
According to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Conm-
mission (FWC) Officer Scott
Van Buren and Lieutenant Pam
Steelman spotted a pickup truck
stopped halfway off of County
Road 731, which is south of Rain-
ey Slough. Rainey Slough is locat-
ed near the intersection of U.S. 27
and County Road 74.
The FWC officers stopped and
reportedly saw Todd in a canal
retrieving an alligator. Grant was
in the bed of the truck, while the
juvenile was standing next to the
vehicle, stated an FWC report.
Upon searching the truck, the
officers reportedly found three
loaded rifles, four pieces of fresh
alligator meat and two live hatch-
ling alligators. They also found
three butchered alligator carcass-
es near the canal, continued the
report.
"We hope this sends a strong
message to would-be wildlife
poachers," said Lt. Steelman.
"We will find you and hold you
accountable for criminal acts."


Saucedo stated that some clean
up had been done and only one
unlicensed vehicles remains.
Unlicensed and/or inoperable
vehicles were found on the N.W.
364th Terrace property of Timmy
and Melissa Sellers according to
Code Enforcement Officer Beth
Albert. The code enforcement
officer said there appeared to be
some type of salvage operation
on the property. However, Mr.
Sellers said that he was not oper-
ating a commercial business on
his property.
Extreme overgrowth, main-
tenance of a nuisance and a de-
teriorated/abandoned structure
were the charges against Ronetta
Johnson White because of the
condition of her N.W First Street


some action to clean up her N.E.
14th Avenue property, but she
was still found to be in noncom-
pliance.
Mrs. Saucedo stated that ANDS
Management was almost in com-
pliance. A building permit has
been issued and all fees were
paid. Required inspections had
been done and the fence was al-
most complete at their recycling
business on U.S. 98 N. Toni Steed
had not obtained the permits re-
quired for the pole barn on her
S.E. 128th Avenue property.

www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. What follows is a sam-
pling of some of the discussions currently taking place.
Thanks for participating!

The price of gasoline
PRICE GOUGING: Is there a number you can call to complain
about price gouging? It has to be price gouging when you come by at
noon and the gas is $1.89 and then come back by the next morning
and its $1.85. I'm talking every few hours. And a truck doesn't even
deliver as often as the price changes. Where can we call to find out
how they can change gas prices two or three times in a day.

Stimulus package questioned
STIMULUS PACKAGE: There's a few things people need to be
aware of with this new stimulus package. If you bought a new home,
first time home buyer last year, 2008 and received a $7,500 credit, you
have to repay that starting in 2010. But if you are a first time home
buyer in 2009, you get up to $8,000 and it does not have to be repaid.
This doesn't seem fair. Another thing, if you think you are getting an
$800 rebate for a joint return or $400 for a single, wrong. They may
give you this money on your weekly paycheck, but then at the end
of the year when you file your taxes, you may have to pay taxes. So
everybody needs to check into this and if you are a working person,
you need to update your W-4 so your taxes aren't reduced so that
you don't end up paying next year. And I think with this first time
home buyers credit, we all need to file a complaint with our legisla-
ture because this is very unfair for the people last year who picked
this credit.

What it's coming to
FREE SHELTER: I would like to say that all these people that are
hurting, homeless, without jobs, without any kind of health care, and
now they are worrying about what they are going to eat. I would just
like to say I know a place that gives people a free shelter, you have a
beautiful place to live. You have three meals a day, you get a bed, you
get a TV, its all free. You get health care, dental, and if you need any
kind of counseling, its all free. All you have to do is go get arrested
and wind up in jail and they'll take care of you. That's what it's all
coming down to.

Dog killed by car
HEARTBROKEN: You should have your dog on a leash. Its your
responsibility. You killed your dog, not the car.

Artfest in Flagler Park
MAINSTREET: I would like to thank Okeechobee Mainstreet and
all of the talented artists that made the ArtFest such a wonderful and
cultural experience. The level of local talent was very impressive. My
family and I really enjoyed viewing the displays and the amazing mu-
sic provided by Billy Bones. It was so nice to see talent at such a
caliber in our own backyard Okeechobee.

Rodeo
GREAT JOB: I thought the Cattlemen did a great job with the ro-
deo. It was very exciting and they seem to have drawn a good size
crowd both days. With the sad state of the economy, I suspect they
were worried this year.
COUNTY FAIR: The fair is not doing so well though. I was there
Saturday -- O.K. crowd till the rodeo started. Then it really thinned
out. After the rodeo everyone left. I have heard from people that have
been there on other days that the crowds are very small. To be ex-
pected in these times. Also there are not many rides this year, and
most of them are older ones. Same things I rode as a kid in the 60s
and 70s. I also think it is time for the American Legion to do away
with their fair. Okeechobee can't support two fairs.
RIDES: I thought the rodeo was great and the fair certainly com-
plemented the rodeo. I have heard the midway vendor is different this
year, so that may be the reason for the different types of rides.
SUPPORT: I'll support the American Legion before I will support
anything with the Cattlemens. The Legion needs to stay, they're a vet-
erans organization.
LEGION: The Cattlemen just run the rodeo, they don't have any-
thing to do with the fair otherwise. The livestock committee handles
the 4-H and FFA livestock show and sale. The county fair board or-
ganizes the rest of the fair. If you want to have input into the fair, the
fair board is always looking for more members. I have seen their no-
tices in the paper over the past year. If you have the time and energy
and ideas, I believe they would welcome the help. However, I don't
think it's fair to ask the American Legion to stop their annual event.
They had the carnival rides first. And that is their big fundraiser for
the year.

School transportation question
BUSES: With the shortage of funds from the Department of Edu-
cation; why do our school buses only transport a minimum of 10
students from the high school home in the afternoons? Since mov-
ing here two weeks ago, I have noticed school buses carrying very
few students. I live in the Basswood development and I have noticed
school buses picking up students at every other street. I spoke with
neighbors regarding this practice and they said because some buses
go to the Freshman Campus. My question is, why can't the buses not
shuttle to the Freshman Campus once they unload at the high school?
Folks, we need to look at the money the state is taking from school
districts, is Okeechobee not affected? Is this why we can transport
students the way we do? As a tax payer, the Superintendent of schools
has the responsibility to answer these questions regarding our bus sys-
tem and the number of students we transport. If she cannot answer
these questions, then we need someone who can. Editor's note: The
Okeechobee School System Transportation Department responds:
The Transportation Department monitors the student loads on all
buses and consolidates routes whenever possible. The average
number of students transported on all regular education high school
buses is 36 (1293 students transported on 36 buses serving OHS/
OFC and NEHS). We provide shuttle service between OHS/OFC and
NEHS both morning and afternoon. The shuttle buses are typically
quite full as we offer a limited number. We have buses equipped for
wheelchairs that have reduced capacity for students. Okeechobee
has seven additional school buses that transport 23 secondary level
students with special transportation needs. Over the past two years,
we have consolidated numerous stops. As a result, students may be
required to walk further to get to their assigned bus stop.

Lake level
DIKE: Tear down the dike and let the lake regulate itself. I think it
would do a much better job of it. Hurricane comes then evacuate and
hope. Trying to control nature causes nothing but problems.
AGRICULTURE: I have absolutely no problem with agriculture
receiving the water they need to grow crops. That is much more im-
portant than watering someone's lawn or filling a swimming pool.
America needs that food, folks. We need to let them grow it so that
we can eat it. Sure some of it is exported but that helps us as well,
because if we weren't exporting food the trade deficit would be even
higher.
FISHING: It still is the Bass Fishing Capitol of the U.S., the next
best lake that comes to mind would be Falcon Lake in South Texas
on the Rio Grande River system. Falcon Lake is managed as a big bass
fishery and they probably do have the biggest concentration of 5 to 10
lb. or bigger bass of any lake in the U.S. The problem with the lake be-
ing lower is that it just makes it harder to launch and more dangerous
to travel. The only way to combat the low water conditions or keep-
ing it at a lower level would be dredging and digging canals deeper to
set into the lake itself.


businesses of
Okeechobee County:
I can't begin to express what
your donation means to myself
and family. The money is most
definitely helpful and will go to
extremely good use. But more
than the monetary value, I so
greatly appreciate the thought
behind the gift. Your generosity
and kindness will always be re-
membered. My illness is a burden
but your actions have really light-
ened the load. For that especially,
I thank you.
This time has been difficult
for us, but knowing we have the
support of so many people like
you certainly helps. Please know
I won't forget your kind gesture.
One family should be so lucky to
have so many people they can call
friend. It has been my pleasure to
serve the citizens of Okeechobee
County for more than 30 years.
We have raised our family here.
Thanks again from the bottom of
my heart.
Sincerely,

college? Dual Enrollment provides
an opportunity for high school
students to begin working on their
college degree at no charge while
still in high school. This can save
students and their parents thou-
sands of dollars in college tuition.

OHS students to attend leadership awards


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
Two local juniors from
Okeechobee High School, Joshua
McCall and Justin Hoover, have
been chosen to attend the Rotary
Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA)
in Port St. Lucie from April 2
through April 5.
RYLA is Rotary's leadership
training program for young peo-
ple. RYLA participants can be
ages 14-30, but most clubs and
districts choose to focus on a nar-
rower age range. District 6930 fo-
cuses on high school students.
RYLA emphasizes leadership,
citizenship, and personal growth,
and aims to: demonstrate Ro-
tary's respect and concern for
youth; provide an effective train-
ing experience for selected youth
and potential leaders; encourage
leadership of youth by youth; and
recognize publicly young people
who are rendering service to their
communities.
The goals of all RYLA pro-
grams share the following ob-
jectives: to demonstrate further
Rotary respect and concern for
youth; to encourage and assist se-
lected youth leaders and potential
leaders in responsible and effec-


tive voluntary youth leadership by
providing them with a training ex-
perience; to encourage continued
and stronger leadership of youth
by youth; and to publicly recog-
nize the high qualities of many
young people who are rendering
service to their communities as
youth leaders.
RYLA events are for young
adults with proven leadership
experience and potential leaders
from diverse backgrounds. RYLA
provides a unique opportunity to
learn, grow, have fun, and make
new friends. The RYLA experi-
ence prepares young people to
be leaders in their community,
profession, and other facets of ev-
eryday life.
Joshua McCall is already striv-
ing to become that leader through
constantly achieving excellence
throughout high school with 4.0
honor roll status for each semes-
ter he has been at OHS. He is cur-
rently ranked fourth in his class.
He was also chosen to attend
Boys' State in July 2009.
Joshua is very active in ex-
tracurricular activities as well
as where he has been on the JV
Football team for two years, Var-
sity Football, JV Soccer for three


years and in the Brahman Band
for three years. He is also a mem-
ber of the OHS Beta Club.
After graduation he plans to at-
tend a four year university in Flor-
ida to pursue a degree in sports
management, athletic training
or a related major to ultimately
coach at the high school or col-
lege level.
Justin Hoover has also dis-
played leadership qualities as he
has held a 4.0 honor roll since
2006 and is currently ranked
fifth in his class. He will also at-
tend Boys' State in 2009. He has
been given several awards: 2006
American Legion Outstanding
Boy; 2006 Osceola Middle School
HERO; 2007 American Legion
Citizen Award; 2007 State Sci-
ence Fair participant; 4-H Leader-
ship Award; 2007 Herbert Hoover
Young Engineer Award; 2009
IRSC Youth Forum Speaker; and
2008 Senate Page.
He is involved in many ex-
tracurricular activities including
the 4-H County Council/Junior
Leaders 4-H District X Council;
the OHS Tennis team, Superin-
tendent's and principal's Student
Advisory Committee; National
Honor's Society; Beta Club; and


Student Council.
After graduation Justin plans
to attend the University of Cen-
tral Florida where he will pursue
his undergraduate degree with a
minor in business administration
and hopes to transfer to a law
school to become a constitutional
lawyer/politician.
The Okeechobee Rotary Club
will pay the expenses of this trip
to RYLA for both young men.
They will also be excused from
school for a field trip on the
Thursday and Friday that they will
miss while in attendance.
The District Rotary holds RYLA
each year where each club in the
district can choose individuals to
sponsor to attend this valuable
experience. Next year the local
Okeechobee Rotary Club will
hold their own mini-RYLA in or-
der to reach more local students
in our area.
For more information about
the Okeechobee Rotary Club call
their president Maureen Budjinski
at 863-484-0110.

t on college
Credits earned through Dual
Enrollment readily transfer to all
Florida universities and most uni-
versities nationally.
Additionally, Dual Enrollment
courses are weighted the same
as Honors, Advanced Placement,
Advanced International Certifi-
cate of Education (AICE) and In-
ternational Baccalaureate courses
when high school grade point av-
erages are calculated.
Please contact the IRSC In-
formation Call Center toll-free at
1-866-792-4772 with any ques-
tions.


Because of the many questions
received by Indian River State Col-
lege about Dual Enrollment, IRSC
is holding a series of information
sessions regarding this highly re-
spected program.
The Dual Enrollment Informa-
tion Session in Okeechobee will


be held on Thursday, April 2, 6
p.m., at the Dixon Hendry Cam-
pus, 2229 N.W. 9th Avenue.
Dual Enrollment students earn
college credits while completing
requirements toward high school
graduation. The courses are free.
This is possible because the pro-
gram is supported by the State of
Florida to help high school stu-
dents accelerate their progress to-
ward a college degree. Many local
Dual Enrollment students choose
to continue their education on
the Treasure Coast and earn their
Bachelor's Degree at IRSC.

With renewable energy prom-
ising to play an important role in
national and regional economic
revitalization, Indian River State
College is expanding its Energy
Institute. The Institute will de-
liver training for those seeking
a new career in green building,
advanced technical certificates
for career changers, expanded
degree programs and energy ef-
ficiency strategies for homeown-
ers.
One of the most popular of the
College's energy initiatives is the
power plant program offered in
cooperation with Florida Power
and Light.
Students develop the skills
needed to operate power plant
systems, including hands-on ex-
perience gained in a paid sum-
mer internship. Graduates of the
program average over $50,000
per year in earnings.
New this month is a series of
courses that enable area residents
to prepare for a career or open a
business in installation of solar
energy systems. The three courses
provide a firm foundation for the
Florida Solar Contractors License
Exam for installation of solar ther-
mal and solar photovoltaic electri-
cal systems. Systems installed by
a licensed solar contractor qualify
the homeowner for a state rebate
and Federal Tax Credit through
the Federal stimulus package. Be-
cause of the rebate and tax cred-
its, individuals who are licensed
to install the solar systems have
a competitive advantage in the
emerging green industry.

munity demand, the initial solar

Murder

Detective Van Deman said a
19-year-old woman, who was Pu-
lido's girlfriend, was in the home
but did not actually see the shoot-
ing.
After the two men left the
home, she locked the door. How

like to see more public funding
before government funds were

people in the business world
want to see a commitment from
the city and county before they
will commit support.
Mr. Smith hinted that there
might be funding available from
the Central Florida Regional Plan-
ning Council and other grant
sources as well as federal stimu-
lus money. Even though there has

Once inside, they stole the keys to

Mr. Smith said they have $25,750
in pledges from prospective mem-
bers. They also had donations of
office space and office furniture.
"I personally don't mind com-
mitting one time," Mayor Jim Kirk
said. However, he added that he
would like to see the outcome be-
fore committing any more money
in the future.
"I really think we need to sup-
port this," said Councilman Dowl-
ing Watford. "It's unbelievable we
don't have some type of econom-
ic development."
"I think it is a good investment
for everybody concerned," stated
Councilman Clayton Williams.
After a lengthy discussion, the
council agreed to commit the
$15,000 to the economic devel-


the woman's dark colored Dodge
Durango and drove away.
The woman was not injured,
said the OCSO investigator.
The woman then called 9-1-1
and both detectives and uni-
formed deputies responded to
the home. Once there, a look
out was issued for the woman's
sports utility vehicle. Deputy Andy
Spires, of the Highlands County
Sheriff's Office (HCSO), spotted
the SUV near Lake Placid. As he
waited for back up he kept watch
on the Durango and the two men,

requested. Since this is not a bud-
geted item, the money will have
to come from the general fund.
Turning to other action, the
board approved the first reading
and set April 7, as the final public
hearing date for two ordinances.
The first, a sign ordinance, would
provide definitions of signs, set
requirements for permitting and
maintenance, provide for ex-
empted and prohibited signs,
temporary signs and signs for
commercial and residential areas.
The other ordinance would grant
an additional $25,000 in home-
stead exemption to persons over
65 who meet certain income re-
quirements.
City administrator Brian White-
hall said the homestead exemp-
tion amendment would affect 80
to 90 households in the city and
would have an $11 to $12 thou-
sand impact on the budget.


who were now reportedly in the
process of committing other bur-
glaries, said Detective Van De-
man.
It is suspected, he continued,
they were looking for keys to an-
other vehicle.
Boswell and Lopez-Martinez
were arrested in the Bear Hollow
subdivision at 1:42 p.m.
"Everything went very well,"
said OCSO Detective Sergeant T.J.
Brock, who has been assigned

month of April to be Motorcycle

Sheriff's Office assisted our agen-
cy in a tremendous way."
While searching the Dodge
Durango, investigators found a
medium caliber handgun that
was similar in caliber to the one
they suspect was used in the slay
ing, said Detective Van Deman.
"But we're not 100 percent
sure the weapon we found was
the weapon used in the shoot-
ing," he said.
Detective Van Deman said the
two suspects have been inter-
viewed and evidence has been
collected, but the investigation is
far from over. He said nearly the


entire OCSO detective unit is fol
lowing up on different leads.
"We're still in the infancy stage
of this investigation," said Detec
tive Van Deman of the year's firsi
homicide in Okeechobee County
"These homicides take a lot ol
work and we're just getting start
ed."
Also found in the rental home
was a new litter of puppies thai
had been sired by Fatboy.
"Their eyes weren't open yet,'
he said.
The mother dog was outside
the home at the time of the shoot
ing and was not hurt.

About teeth
On Wednesday, March 11, Ms. Stanley's first grade class
enjoyed a visit from Dr. Jennifer Laskey. Dr. Laskey's
daughter is a student in Ms. Stanley's class, which has
been learning about teeth in science. Dr. Laskey talked to
the children about the importance of good dental hygiene,
showed them a model of an adult mouth, and took a mo-
ment to read the book, '"Just a Trip to the Dentist." She also
was generous enough to leave every child with a "healthy
teeth kit." Ms. Stanley's students loved the visit, and thank
Dr. Laskey for taking time out of her busy schedule to visit
our class!

Judging
Continued From Page 1

the Osceola County Fair in Kissim-
mee, and seventh at the State Fair
in Tampa this year.
Volunteer Gary Parks said the
kids have really had a great time
and have really worked hard to be
successful. The solid 2009 start fol-
lows a successful 2008 year. They
finished fifth at the South Florida
Fair last year, and seventh at the
State Fair. They won the champi-
onship at the Osceola County Fair
in Kissimmee last year.
The team will also compete in
a local judging contest on March
20, at the Okeechobee County
Fair. Twenty-two teams, including
six or seven from Okeechobee,
will be on hand for the compe-
tition. The On the hoof team is
sponsored by the local 4-H.
The team judges beef, swine
and lamb. They judge the ani-
mals' bone structure, how much
fat they contain, and how much
muscle. They basically figure how
much meat the animals have on
their bones.
The team also judges several
different classes that include heif-
ers, bulls, steers, and swine. Most
of the stock they judge at an event
comes from the host county.
Mr. Parks said livestock judg-
ing is the only place in the world
where you can have 200 kids stole
silent in one arena. By the rules if
a competitor talks, they are dis-
qualified.
Some of the top individual
performances this year included
a third place finish by Payton Byrd
at the Palm Beach Fair, a sixth
place finish by Taylor Poiter at
the Palm Beach fair, a third place
finish by Zack Lawerance at an
event in Hillsborough County.
Katlyn Lawerance and Bran-
don Parks have taken top prize at


one event each this year, Katyln
at the Kissimmee Fair and Bran-
don at an event in Hillsborough
County.
The team would like to thank
Jim McCoin of Cowboys Restau-
rant for sponsoring the successful
team. Special thanks also go to
the parents and the community
for their countless efforts.

Pi Day
Since the approximate mathematical value for "Pi" is 3.14,
"Pi Day" was celebrated across America on March 14. At
the Okeechobee Freshman Campus, Mrs. King's Algebra
classes celebrated with activities that involved Pi (not
pie!). Although there are approximations for Pi, the exact
mathematical value for Pi is 3.1415926535 with a never-
ending and never-repeating pattern of digits following. It
was derived by dividing the circumference of a circle by
its diameter. Mrs. King's classes measured gum balls and
lifesavers and calculated the value of Pi based on each
one's circumference divided by its diameter. Whoever was
the closest to the exact Pi value, received a reward. This
photo is a picture of the mathematical symbol for "Pi,"
formed by students in Mr. Johnson's and Mrs. King's sixth
period classes.

Even with the lack of rain and
the Lake level dropping back
down to around 12 feet or so, the
Big O' Teen Anglers, Inc. have not
let that stop them. And they are
out to prove that they can find fish
even in the lower water levels.
They held their monthly tour-
nament on Feb. 28, out of Lock 7
and were quite successful.
A total of 20 anglers took to the
water and brought in a total of 24
fish weighing in at 47.83 pounds.
Ryan Edwards took first place
in the 11-14 year old division, with
a total fish weight of 4.15 lbs. as
well as the Big Fish award with
a big fish weighing in at 2.74 lbs.
Following Ryan in second place
was Jose Hernandez with 3.75
lbs. and in third place was James
Stafford with 2.43 lbs.
In the 15-18 year old division
first place went to Kyle Monti who
brought in 11.14 lbs. of fish. Kyle
was followed in second place
by Garret Farmer with 7.27 lbs.
Luke Joles placed third with 5.51
lbs. and took the Big Fish award
for their division with a big fish
weighing 3.66 lbs.
Luke Farmer, 9, is a guest an-
gler for the club when an alter-
nate is needed. He was awarded
honorable mention for his lar-
gemouth bass he caught which
weighed in at 3.66 lbs.
Congratulations anglers!

Okeechobee News
Small ball was the name of the
game as the Okeechobee High
School Brahman baseball team
scratched and clawed their way
to a 2-1 victory over Fort Pierce
Westwood Tuesday afternoon.
Strong pitching, sacrifice
bunts, and tight defense were
on display on both sides of the
ball Tuesday, and it was the little
things that mattered.
A wild pitch in the seventh
proved to be the difference as
Mike Minondo scampered home
from third to give Okeechobee
the victory.


Dustin Stokes and Cameron
Tewksbury pitched lights out
again for Okeechobee. Stokes
allowed just three hits and a run
over the first five innings, and
Tewksbury came on to pitch two
shutout innings with five strike-
outs. He picked up the win.
"I've said we are going to win
a lot of low scoring tight games
this year," Brahmans Coach Dy-
lan Tedders said, "That is how
we have to win. We've got three
quality starts in a row now. With
our pitching we should win the
close games right now."
Okeechobee's winning rally
began when Minondo reached


on a pinch hit infield single. Mark
Weir sacrificed him to second.
Aaron Suarez, 3-3 at the plate, hit
a ball that appeared to be headed
for center field. Westwood got
a great defensive play that kept
the ball in the infield. Minondo
reached third base on the play. Af-
ter a safety squeeze failed, West-
wood threw a wild pitch on a two
strike pitch to Brice Buckner, and
Minondo raced home.
Okeechobee's other run came
in the fourth as Buckner doubled,
reached third on a sacrifice and
scored on a sacrifice fly by Jona-
than Crawford.
Fort Pierce tied the game in the


bottom of the fourth on a clutch
RBI single by catcher Mike John-
son.
"It was well played game, but
I'll take it, a win is a win anyway
you can get it," Tedders noted.
Cardell Hamilton pitched six
solid innings for Westwood.
Okeechobee improved to
(5-1) in the district. They hosted
another 5-1 district team Lincoln
Park Academy on Thursday night.
Okeechobee travels to Jensen
Beach on Monday night for an-
other district contest.


Okeechobee News
It was an easy day at the of-
fice for the Okeechobee High
School Girls Tennis team Tues-
day as they dominated an out-
classed Port St. Lucie squad at
the Jaguars pen.
Four of five Okeechobee girls
won their matches via the shut-
out. The matches were changed
from best of three sets to a
quicker eight game format. The
change didn't seem to matter to
Okeechobee (8-1).


Alisha Wilcox, and Katie Walker
all defeated their opponents 8-0.
Fifth seed Liz Turner defeated
Catiana Munoz 8-4 in the closest
match of the day.
In doubles Okeechobee was
just as tough. The team of Berg-
er and Walker defeated Vanessa
Lopez and Amy Sims 8-1. The
team of Shaina Ragamat and
Wilcox defeated Victoria Labo-
da and Jessica Roy 8-0.
The girls return home on
Monday against Avon Park.
Match time is 4:30 p.m.


June, White play in all star games


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
David Jeune continued to im-
press recruiters Saturday when he
appeared in the Don Wallen All-
Star Game at Martin County High
School.
June is expected to take most
if not all of April before he decides


on what college he will attend. Je-
une is being looked at by at least
six schools that have qualified for
the NCAA Tournament this year.
"We will have a lot of schools
coming in to look at him over
the next few weeks," Brahmans
Coach Jon Enrico noted, "He has
five or six offers right now from
major universities."


Okeechobee Forecast
Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 81. North northwest wind
between 5 and 15 mph.
Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 60. North wind around
10 mph.
Extended Forecast
Saturday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 76. North wind between
10 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 25 mph.
Saturday night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 56. North wind
between 5 and 15 mph, with gusts as high as 20 mph.


Jeune had seven points and
nine rebounds in the featured
game Saturday in Stuart. His team,
the Who Got Game All Stars, was
comprised mostly of players from
the Treasure Coast. Jeune was in
the starting lineup and also fin-
ished second in the slam dunk
contest before the game.
Jeune will also play in the


Ma


Treasure Coast All Star game at
the end of March at Indian River
State College in Fort Pierce.
Corey White also played in a
local all star game at the Don Wal-
len Classic. He had four blocks,
two steals and two points in the
game. White will also play in the
Treasure Coast All Star game this
month.

Do you need a summer job?


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's Oc
ala Outdoor Adventure Camp is
hiring staff now for its six-week
summer camp program.
The overnight camp for boys
and girls is located in the Ocala
National Forest and begins in
June.
"We have limited positions


for qualified individuals, includ-
ing camp counselors, instruc-
tors and kitchen staff," said Greg
Workman, director of the Ocala
Conservation Center and sum-
mer youth camp program. "If
you enjoy being outdoors and
working with children, we want
to talk to you."
The positions come with a


competitive salary, meals and
lodging. Staff is required to live
at the camp during the camper
sessions.
The primary goal of the camp
program is to help children be-
come good, conservation-mind-
ed sportsmen and women, and
wildlife stewards. They learn
these skills and values through


fun and educational programs
and activities such as fishing,
canoeing, swimming, hiking, ar-
chery and many other hands-on
outdoor activities.
For more information or for
registration materials for the
summer program, call 352-625-
2804 or go to www.OcalaAdven-
tureCamp.com.


Freshwater turtles conservation proposed


After months of reviewing and
discussing the issue of the fresh-
water turtle harvest in Florida,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) staff
will present a draft rule at the
Commission meeting in Tallahas-
see on April 15.
"Staff is proposing a draft rule
that represents the most compre-
hensive set of protections and
conservation measures for fresh-
water turtles in the United States,"
said Tim Breault, the FWC's direc-
tor of Habitat and Species Con-
servation. "Few places in North


America have the rich diversity
of turtles that we have here in
Florida, and this proposed rule
ensures their long-term survival."
The draft rule would ban the
commercial take or sale of wild
freshwater turtles. The draft rule
also would prohibit taking turtles
from the wild that are listed on
Florida's imperiled species list, as
well as species that look similar
to the imperiled species, which
include common snapping turtles
and cooters. In addition, the col-
lection of eggs would be prohibit-
ed. Individuals would be allowed


to take one freshwater turtle per
day per person from the wild for
noncommercial use. The trans-
port of more than one turtle per
day would be prohibited.
Some turtle farms currently
depend on the collection of wild
freshwater turtles. Under the
proposed draft rule, turtle farms,
under a tightly controlled pro-
cess, would be allowed to collect
turtles for breeding purposes for
a two-year period. However, staff
is proposing a review of this pro-
cess by 2011, and turtle collection
for farms will end if no further ac-


tion is taken by the Commission
after the review.
The FWC has an open, pub-
lic process for developing rules.
Commissioners will consider this
draft rule at the April 15, Com-
mission meeting. If approved,
the rule would be advertised for a
final hearing at the June Commis-
sion meeting in Crystal River. The
public may submit comments to
the FWC any time during this rule
making process and may testify at
Commission meetings. The public
may send comments on the draft
rule to turtles@MyFWC.com.


U.S. Sugar purchase proceeds despite opposition


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
One of the largest land pur-
chases in Florida history is pro-
ceeding despite the opposition
of the state's largest agricultural
organization.
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) is work-
ing toward a scheduled Septem-
ber closing for the purchase of
183,000 acres from U.S. Sugar for
$1.34 billion. Among the benefits
of the purchase, SFWMD includes
increased water storage, cleaner
water delivered to the Everglades
and elimination of back pumping
into Lake Okeechobee.


In June the SFWMD Governing
Board will be receiving from staff
a presentation of possible specific
uses for the land and the prelimi-
nary costs for those uses.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is expressing their oppo-
sition to the sale. There are four
main points to their opposition.
The first is that the organization
supports the rights of private
property owners to acquire, use
and sell property but opposes the
unnecessary acquisition of more
land by government. The federa-
tion is also concerned that, in or-
der to fund the purchase of the
land, funds would be siphoned

away from Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan (CERP)
projects. In addition, they are
concerned about the huge chunk
of land that will be removed from
the tax rolls causing a lack of ad
valorum taxes to area govern-
ments. The farm bureau fears that
the seven year lease back period
would create any unfair competi-
tive advantage over other agricul-
tural producers.
Those opposition were re-
vealed in a December, 2008 press
release and recently reempha-
sized in the organization's March
newsletter.
That same March newsletter


encourages county farm bureaus
to adopt resolutions against the
land deal and present their reso-
lutions to their local county com-
missions.
Interestingly, one seat on the
SFWMD Board of governors has
been vacant since last June. This
seat has traditionally been held
by someone with an interest in
agriculture. The seat was vacant
on Dec. 16, 2008 when the board
voted 4-3 to accept the proposal
to acquire the land.

Boys tennis not discouraged after first loss


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
A loss at Sebring Mon-
day didn't seem to affect the
Okeechobee High School Boys
Tennis Team's attitude the next
day when they visited Port St.
Lucie.
Okeechobee took it to the
Jaguars winning the match 6-1,
thanks to some heroics by Alex
Nielson and Max Norman.
Both Okeechobee players
were forced into 17 games in
one set before they were able
to prevail, 9-8.
"We really needed a win
after a disappointing loss at
Sebring," Coach Bryan Van
Camp said, "Max and Alex had
to dig deep to win their match-
es, especially Max who was
down 7-4."
Nielson defeated James
Hamm and Norman defeated
Mike Bradley to fuel the Brah-


mans. Zach Fowler rebounded
from his first loss of the y ear
with an 8-0 victory over Steffa-
no Carobone. Kyle Lunt defeat-
ed Dante Quiroga 8-4. The only
singles player to lose was top
seed Corey White, who forced
Joe Baciak into a tie breaker
before losing 9-8, (7-5).
Coach Van Camp said de-
spite the loss Monday, it ap-
pears his team remains con-
fident. He noted several of
his players gave great efforts
against the Blue Streaks.
"We were really beaten by
a better team in Sebring. I defi-
nitely felt like the match could
have been more competitive.
Sebring is a quality opponent.
Corey and Zach played their
hearts out. Corey was down a
set and battled back to easily
win his next two sets. He made
a lot of impressive shots against
a tough opponent. Zach fought
for every single point in a highly


competitive match. His oppo-
nent was just physically stron-
ger. You can never bet against
Zach, he is all heart."
The Okeechobee doubles
teams also swept Port St. Lucie.
The team of White and Fowler
hammered Baciak and Caro-
bone 8-2. The team of Norman
and Austin Willard defeated
Hamm and David Scierka 8-3.
Coach Van Camp said he is
impressed with how Willard
has taken to the game of ten-
nis. "Austin played very well in
doubles. His game is improv-
ing rapidly."
The tennis team visited
South Fork on Thursday. They
play a home match on Monday,
March 23, against Avon Park.
Match time is 4:30 p.m. at the
Okeechobee Sports Complex.
