Man is wounded by deputy


Sheriff: man
told deputies
'... bring it on'
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The area around the carport
of a Pioneer Estates mobile
home was pitch dark at mid-
night, but when deputies shone
their, flashlights they couldn't
help but see a man standing
there with a rifle in his hands.


"I have something for y'all -
bring it on," said the man.
Refusing commands from
deputies to drop his weapon,
the man began to walk toward
them. The apparently intoxicat-
ed man then began to lower his
rifle and assume an aggressive
posture.
Left with no choice, an Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) deputy fired two shots
from his .40-cal. Glock hand-
gun. One round struck the 36-
year-old man in the right hip.


The other penetrated his left
thigh.
"We're sorry this happened,
but we're glad our deputies are
fine," said Sheriff Paul May Fri-
day morning.
Sheriff May, called to the
scene during the early morning
hours on Friday, said the rifle
was loaded and there was a
round in the chamber.
"Looking into this, the
deputy was completely justified
in his action," said the sheriff.
The deputy, whose name has


not been released, has been
with the sheriff's office for 12
years and is in a supervisory
position.
OCSO Major Noel Stephen
said the deputy has been placed
on administrative leave with pay
while an internal investigation
into the shooting incident is
conducted by OCSO Detective
Ted Van Deman.
Sheriff May said there hasn't
been this type of shooting inci-
dent involving a deputy since
1982.


According to the sheriff,
deputies were called to the
scene on S.E. 57th Drive due to a
domestic violence complaint.
He said the man had apparently
choked his wife, and she then
fled from their home with her 9-
year-old daughter to her sister's
house next door.
The woman's sister called 9-
1-1 around midnight Friday
morning, state OCSO reports.
The woman told an OCSO dis-

An economic development
program tailored to Okeechobee
County that has been over a year
in the making was unveiled
before the Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners
at their Thursday meeting.
In another item related to
economic development, com-
missioners approved an inter-
local regional transportation
plan.
S- They agreed,to join with DeS-
oto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry and
Highlands counties and Florida's
Heartland REDI, Inc. to create a
regional transportation area and


prepare a regional transporta-
tion plan. This will set up a
framework for a regional trans-
portation plan coordinated by
Florida's Heartland REDI.
According to Deputy County
Administrator Jim Threewits, it
would provide for qualification
for funds not readily available
otherwise and would not take
away from projects already fund-
ed.
This action could help facili-
tate the four laneing of S.R. 70 E.

was named to represent the
county on the executive commit-

tee established by this agreement.
The first draft of the economic
plan announced by Bill Fruth, head
of POLICOM Corporation, was the
culmination of efforts that began
when the board first hired him in
July of 2004 at a cost of $24,750,
upon the recommendation of the
Okeechobee Development Author-
ity (ODA).
"It's a huge project; it's the
future of the county," was the com-
ment of ODA attorney Deborah
Hooker, when ODA chose Mr.
Fruth's corporation over several
other applicants.
Mr. Fruth has extensive experi-
ence in economic planning. Since
creating the Palm City-based POLI-
COM in 1995, he has evaluated
more than 600 local economies
and created more than 150 com-
munity studies. Prior to that, he
served as vice president of a major
land development company. He
also served as mayor of Tiffin,
Ohio. In addition, Mr. Fruth is the
author of the book "WHERE THE
MONEY IS America's Strongest


Local Economies".
After collecting data for many
months, Mr. Fruth met with civic
leaders, political officials, business
and profession people and educa-
tors at the KOA Kampgrounds in
May for an economic planning
summit.
For this summit, Mr. Fruth pro-
duced a 21-page workbook, a 39-
page economic goal setting study
and a 183-page, four-section histor-
ical, comparative economic analy-
sis of Okeechobee County.
After this meeting, Mr. Fruth
completed his plan that still needs a
little'tweaking. A steering commit-
tee of local business leaders will
evaluate the plan before it is placed
in its final form.
The first step in an economic
development program, according
to Mr. Fruth, is to determine what
incentives can be offered.
"Incentives are used more often
than ever before," he said.
There are fewer and fewer
wealth producing businesses
expanding or relocating, therefore
the competition forces govern-
ments to offer incentives.
Among the possible incentives
discussed were county funding for
training, tax refunds, reimburse-


ment for land, buildings or equip-
ment purchases and low interest
loans.
For each incentive he suggested
cost caps be established so the
community knows the maximum
amount of money the incentive will
require.
After determining the possible
incentives, a point system is
devised for each one. Mr. Fruth pro-
posed a matrix using this point sys-
tem to evaluate prospective indus-
tries.
If a company will not pay at
least 110 percent of the previous
year's average wage, it will not
qualify for any incentive under the
matrix.
There were four issues that Mr.
Fruth said still need to be deter-
mined. The qualification matrix
must be completed and tested.
Sources of funding for out-of-pock-
et incentives must be identified. In
addition, procedures must be
determined for expedited permit-
ting and/or regulatory relief.
Mr. Fruth suggested the creation
of an economic development
organization with one or two full
time economic development pro-
fessions. He predicted it would cost
roughly $150,000 a year to begin


the process.
A budget hearing scheduled for
Thursday afternoon was resched-
uled to Monday, Aug. 15, at 9 a.m.
In order action, the board:
heard comments from Earl
Boyettee requesting that commis-
sioners fund the sheriff's office for
the hiring of additional motorcycle
patrolmen;
granted Berry Hurst's petition
to rezone N.W. 30th Street property
from residential mixed or residen-
tial general;
changed zoning from agricul-'
ture to residential general on U. S.
441 S.E. property owned by Water-
dance Farm, LLC;
scheduled a public hearing for
Thursday, Sept. 8, to consider aban-
doning a platted rights-of-way in
Okeechobee Gardens subdivision;
rescinded a previously grant-
ed final plat approval for Edgewater
Acres subdivision, which is near
Northlake Country Estates, pend-
ing notification regarding the cur-
rent state of repair of roads in the
proposed subdivision;
amended the Hurricane
Housing Assistance Plan to incor-
porate the selection criteria for
choosing an agency to impliment
the rehabilitation strategy and


approved issuance of an associated
request for proposal;
awarded a contract in the
amount of $66,273 to Craig A.
Smith to provide construction
management services for the Scott
Driver project;
approved construction of a
playground at OK Softball Fields
pending verification of a $10,000
Treasure Cost Resource Conserva-
tion and Development grant for this
project;
awarded a contract to Craig A.
Smith for architectural and project
management services in connec-
tion with a restroom/concession/
press box construction project at
the OK Softball Fields for an
amount not to exceed $13,260;
convened an executive ses-
sion to discuss labor negotiations;
authorized the county attor-
ney to spend up to $85,000 to
acquire mortgage interest and fore-
close on Douglas Park property in
order to obtain property for con-
struction of eight CDBG homes;
and,
approved the emergency pur-
chase and installation of insulating
material for the county vehicle
maintenance building at a cost not
to exceed $20,000.

," said the He was told numerous times
to drop his weapon," said the
sheriff.
When he did not heed their
warnings, the deputy fired.
W Following the shooting, the
deputies administered first aid
until Emergency Medical Service
personnel arrived. The man was
later airlifted by AeroMed to St.
Mary's Hqspital in West Palm
Beach, where he was listed in
stable condition later Friday.
Sheriff May said as far as he
knew the deputy was doing well.
"We have an employee assis-
tance program here and should
he need it, it will be available to
him," explained the sheriff. The
program includes counseling, he
added.
Sheriff May said members of
his department must qualify on
the gun range each quarter. He
L added that this particular deputy
has received more training than
most road deputies because he
is a member of the OCSO Special
Response Team (SRT).
Major Stephen said investiga-
tors would canvass the neigh-
Sborhood as a part of the investi-
gation, and that Detective Brad
Stark was going to St. Mary's
rs" Hospital to check on the injured
lw man's condition.
As for the man's past, Maj.
Stephen said he does have a
criminal history but since the
-. probe was still in its infancy he
had not ascertained exactly what
the man's criminal history
entailed.
He added that the man's wife
had some minor injuries but
refused transport to a hospital.
As part of the investigation,
the deputy has surrendered his
weapon and it will be checked to
make sure it is in proper working
order, said Maj. Stephen.
No formal charges have been
filed as of yet, said Sheriff May.
Assistant State Attorney Ashley
Albright was on the scene short-
ly after the shooting and inter-
*. viewed those involved.
The state attorney's office will
file charges at the proper time,
said Maj. Stephen.

VJ Day? VJ Day (Victotry o\vi
Japan) celebrated the iend of Wot i ad
War 11. in Florida, on Aug. H0, 1i9!5
then Governor Millard F. Caldwci\
proclaimed:
"WHEREAS, the aHnnounce
ment of victory against .Japan and
the final end ofworld-wide
in which we have been en.ugcd
since 1941 will be received by the
people of. h ,I, of the U1Jited
States of Anierica, and of the enriiie
civilized world, with gratitude an (I
thanksgiving that we were spared
further damage and sorrow,.."
World War II ended tl tat Aug. of
1945, bringing home the men andl
women who had left hIome to figlhi.
Not all returned to joy, 4, ', it of the
250,000.Floridians who served in
the war lost their lives to the con-
flicts.
Those who were there, who
remember are our grandparents,
our great-grandparents now. Just
consider these words: Third Reich,
Holocaust, Battle of the Bulge,
.Pearl Harbor, Iwo Jima, tOmaiha
Beach, D-Day andl (retnmi'behr th.'
m ovie, .. Ill.. Private
Ryan"?) finally VJ Dby." All were
defining words of World War II.
Those, who lived ilii..1... it are
called, as NBC's Tom Brokaw said,
"the greatest generation".
.Leaders of the Allied forces had
met in July at Cecileinhof Palace,
located in Germany between Pots-
dam and Berlin to draft the declara-
tion which defined lapan's perilous
position, outlined the terfis for sur-
render and stated the Allies inten-
tions for a post-war Japan. This
"Potsdam Declaration" of July 26,
1945, an ultimatum to Japan, was
ignored by the Japanese despite its
promise of "prompt and ulter
destruction,"
Then on Aug: 6th, the atomic
bomb dropped on Hiroshitma
delivered the promise of destruc-
tion to Japan, followed by the
bombing of Nagasaki three days
later on Aug. 9th. That same day
Soviet forces invaded Manchuria.

Greenspan oil paintings


"It was like a gold rush. People were stampeding
and the phone was ringing off the hook. By the
end of the day, every single piece was sold."
-Rebecca Cooper,
gallery co-owner


before heading to London in
October. Several Greenspans
were sold at her show's opening
last Saturday but the real frenzy
started Tuesday after her works
were featured in a segment on a
cable financial news channel.
"It was like a gold rush,"
gallery co-owner Rebecca Cooper
said. "People were stampeding
and the phone was ringing off the
hook. By the end of the day, every
single piece was sold." '
Eighteenopaintings were sold to
mostly Wall Street types for $1,000
to $4,000; the small gallery also


took orders for large runs of prints.
Sally Breen, the family friend,
said money managers and others
in the financial business called
from all over the country, looking
for their Greenspans.
"One of my first sales was this
woman from Pennsylvania who
says he's her hero," Breen said.
Lou Guida, of Vero Beach, Fla.,
was thrilled that his wife, Rose,
jumped on the phone to purchase
"It's Killing Me" and "If You Say
So." They will go in Guida's home
and his son-in-law's office, respec-
tively.

DAVIE Don't tell David
Boston 'that the preseason is
meaningless.
Boston made three catches for
29 yards in the Miami Dolphins'
preseason opener against Chica-
go on Monday night, and didn't
figure into the scoring.
Yet the game was an impor-
tant step for the former Pro Bowl
wide receiver, who missed the
entire 2004 season because of a
knee injury suffered in that year's
training camp. He's in a race to
be the Dolphins' third receiver
this season, behind first-stringers
Chris Charribers and.Marty Book-
er.
Boston's next game opportu-
nity is Saturday night, when the
Dolphins visit the Jacksonville
Jaguars.
"It is going to take me a little


while to get back in sync," Boston
said.. "It was my first game. All I
can do is take steps in the right
direction and that is what I have
done."
The Dolphins signed Boston
to a one-year deal before camp,
taking another chance on the tal-
ented, yet troubled, player.
Last December, the NFL sus-
pended Boston for testing posi-
tive for steroids and missing
those four, game checks cost him
$1.34 million of his salary. Boston
has denied using steroids.
In February, he pleaded no
contest to a charge of striking a
ticket agent at Burlington Interna-
tional Airport four months earlier.
And he came to Miami under
somewhat auspicious circum-
stances; he had 70 catches for
880 yards and seven touchdowns

"I don't have any expecta-
tions," said Boston, who's made
a catch in 62 consecutive games
in which he's appeared. "I just
want to go out there when my
name is called and help the team
in any way I can. That is what iny
focus is right now."

/ WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A
PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:






Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

e7 Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITI." Monthly homeowners'association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITI.
Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
o Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

Reflections from the Pulpit


By Rev. Al Jaquith,
Pastor First Baptist Church
of Basinger
The Biblical concept of sin
seems to be absent from the
consciousness of today's socie-
ty. This appears to be true in the
church as well as outside. Our
human desire to seek justifica-
tion for the things we want to do
has seduced us into buying into
the rationalizations of the world,
even though the apostle Paul
warned us in the scriptures "Do
not conform any longer to the
pattern of this world.."(Rom.
12:2) Part of the problem may
stem from our misunderstand-
ing of what constitutes sin.
Sin may best be described by
looking at the origin of the word
in its original use. Sin is an Eng-
lish translation of a Greek word
that was used for the archery
term that meant "to miss the
mark". This would describe any
arrow that was not dead center
in the bulls-eye. Using this
imagery, I will attempt to
describe what I experienced
when I "missed the mark".
During my younger years, I
would shoot my arrow with my
best efforts and then compare
the results with those shooting
at the same target. Sometimes
my arrow would be closer to the
center than others would be, so I
would feel good about myself.
More often, I would completely
miss the target and excuse my
performance by reminding
myself that I was only a begin-
ning archer. In either case, I was
not too concerned because it
was evident that no one else was
shooting a perfect score either. I
did not know what the final
score had to be at the end of my
life, but I was reasonably sure I
was as close as anyone else was
to having a good enough score.
As I matured in years, I began
to realize that perhaps my score
might not be as good as it need-
ed to be. Then I heard that the
score needed to finish the com-
petition was all bulls-eyes. No
misses at all! Of course, this was
impossible, or so I thought. The
good news that Jesus could cor-
rect allmy misses was the hope I
needed in the reality of all my
failures and poor shooting, but
now I have another problem.
The longer I participate in shoot-
ing arrows, the more dissatisfied
I become with near misses. I am
no longer happy to be close
enough, and yet, I still do not
have the skill to hit the target
every time, and the Accuser
(Satan) is quick to point out
every miss.


The apostle Paul talked about
this struggle in the letter to the
Romans, chapter 7:14-25. Using
the archery image, Paul is saying
that he wants to shoot straight;
he tries his best to hit the bulls-


J/

"Where the Diffe
We still sing the o.


eye, but he just can't seem to do
it. He finally asked the question,
"Who will rescue me from the
results of my poor shooting?"
The answer to the problem is
Jesus Christ our Lord.


rence is Worth the Distance"
Id inspired hymns.


We still preach the old infallible Book.
