According to the Revenue
Department investigators, Trent
allegedly collected tax from his
customers at his business. How-
ever, during various periods
between October 2002 and
March 2005, he reportedly failed
to file sales tax returns and failed
to send to the state all of the tax
money owed to the, state. Under
state law, sales tax is the property
of the state at the time of collec-
tion. Department of Revenue staff
members contacted Trent in an
attempt to help him come into
compliance with state tax laws,
but were unsuccessful.
According to the sheriff's
office report, after his arrest, Trent
was released on.$5,000 bond.
"To be fair, tax laws must
apply uniformly to all business-
es," said Jim Zingale, executive
director of the Revenue Depart-
ment. "Tax cheats steal money
that the public pays to support
vital public services, such as law
enforcement and education. They
also steal a competitive advantage
over honest businesspeople who
pay their taxes. The department
cannot and will not allow this to

Woman convicted in identity theft
General Charlie Crist announced
that an Orlando jury convicted a
Georgia woman on charges that
she used another person's iden-
tity to steal more than $2.5 mil-
lion from that individual and
financial institutions. Eva Patrick
Verner, also known as Eva
- Buchowski, faces up to 60 years
in prison following the convic-
A joint investigation by the
Attorney General's Office 6f
Statewide Prosecution and the
Orange County Sheriff's Office
revealed that Verner, 67,
obtained a Florida driver's
license with her photograph but
under the name of a Kissimmee
woman. Working with various
lenders in Southeast and South-
west Florida, Verner used the
bogus driver's license and other
fraudulent documents to obtain
two mortgages on the victim's
property in amounts of $350,000
and $2.3 million. She had large
portions of the money wired to
an account in the Cayman
Islands that had been opened in
the victim's name. Verner then
transferred the funds from the
fraudulent account to her own
account and attempted to used
the proceeds to buy other prop-
erties in the Gainesville area.
"This is a staggering tale of
fraud and identity theft," said
"Fortunately, Florida has a
new identity theft law that pro-
penalties for such egregious
criminal activity. Nothing is more
than a person's good name,
and we will continue the fight to
Floridians from those who
would steal it."
Verner was convicted on two
counts of criminal use of person-
al identification information. She
will be sentenced on November
3 and faces a minimum sentence
of 10 years in prison and a maxi-
mum sentence of 60 years,as
well as possible fines up to
$20,000. The case was prosecut-
ed by the Attorney General's
Office of Statewide Prosecution,
which has worked with the
Kissimmee victim in an attempt
to help her restore her credit rat-
the wake of Verner's actions.

STREET LIGHTS: I was wondering why the street lights on S.R. 70 E.
by Bill'fs Mini Mart aren't lit. It's dark out that way. (Editor's Note: We
spoke with the county and were told that the lights were damaged in
last year's hurricanes. However, the contractor that will be repairing
the lights has now received all the parts necessary to fix the lights and
will be starting that job next week. It is anticipated that all of the lights
damaged by the storms will be fixed by the middle of October.)
JUNK YARD: Regarding the junk yard on Parrott Avenue, I am not
concerned with how bad it looks. It has been there so long I don't even
notice it anymore. But I am very concerned about the potential envi-
ronmental hazards. That junkyard is located on Taylor Creek, which
flows directly into the Lake Okeechobee. Our drinking water comes
from Lake Okeechobee. Gas, oil and transmission fluid that leak out of
those old junked vehicles may be going into our water. I think the
health department and the Department of Environmental Protection
should get out there and do some tests to find out what toxins are in
the soil there and what is getting into the ground water as well as what
is getting into Taylor Creek. Allowing a junkyard right next to a water-
way was not the best idea. I realize it was probably there before zon-
ing. But that doesn't mean they should just ignore any health hazards.
COP CARS: The people who complain about cops using marked
vehicles for personal use are way off base. It is not a waste of tax dol-
lars. Anytime those vehicles are driving around town, they help deter
crime. If anything, we should encourage the cops to drive them more. I
have seen several studies on this. When drivers see a marked police
vehicle, they start driving better. They use their turn signals. They slow
down. They pay more attention to driving properly. Also, when crimi-
nals see a police car driving down the street, they go elsewhere. Hav-
ing those cars on the road is a deterrent to crime. It also upsets me that
people are so petty that they begrudge a parent the convenience of
dropping off a child on their way to work, which is not even wasting
any gas. I know a lot of cops and all of the spouses work. They have the
same pressures as the rest of us, trying to get the kids where they need
to be. The poliGe and deputies work crazy hours and risk their lives
every day to protect you. Give them a break and show them a little
appreciation instead of complaining about every little thing.
PHOTOS: I don't understand why some clubs and churches get
photos in the paper all the time and others don't. How is it that some
groups get in the paper so often? (Editor's note: When you see "sub-
mitted to" or "special to" in the photo credit under a photo, it means
that a community member took the photo and submitted it to the
newspaper. We encourage dubs, schools, churches and other organi-
zations to take photos of their activities and submit them to the news-
paper. The organizations you see most often in the newspaper are
those who are submitting their own photos. The easiest way to do this
is to take a digital photo and submit it via email, as a jpg attachment. In
the email you can give all the information about the photo, when and
where it was taken, and who is pictured. Community members may
also bring photos to the newspaper office, 107 S.W. 17th Street, during
regular office hours, Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.)
CLEAN IT UP: This business with the junkyard has been going on
for more than 20 years. All he has to do is put up a nice looking fence
and move all the junk behind the fence. It is ridiculous to have junk out
there on the sidewalk. Also, any business should be required to pro-
vide adequate parking for their customers. It is not right to have cus-
tomers pulling their cars up on the sidewalk because there is no other
place to park.. If cars pull up on the sidewalk, the cops.should give
them a ticket. That is dangerous to pedestrians and to other drivers. If
you are going to have a business, you should have to provide parking
for your customers and also provide a safe entry and exit to the parking
area. This is not a matter of a man's right to use his property. It is a pub-
lic safety concern that would be remedied if he really cared about the

WHAT DO I NEED
TO DO BEFORE MAKING A
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 annualincome.
More precisely, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six
2. the amount of cash you have available for the down payment. closing
costs and cash reserves required by the lender;
3. your outstanding debts;
4. Your credit history;
5. the type of mortgage you select; and
6. current interest rates.
07 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 I project ad 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.
Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. '14A0

W.._if.I_ Prayer walk planned at local schools
Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Reminder to give
This admonition to be generous was seen in front of the
Okeechobee Church of Christ
By Reverend Bruce Simpson
"If my people, which are called
by my name, shall humble them-
selves, and pray, and seek my face,
and turn from their wicked ways;
then will I hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sin, and will heal
their land." II Chronicles 7:14 King
During the month of October,
the Okeechobee Ministerial Associ-
ation will be sponsoring a prayer
walk at all of the local schools.
Each Tuesday night at 6:30 p.m.
the prayer walkers will gather at
His House Fellowship, formerly
known as the Church of the
Nazarene, located at 425 S.W. 28th:
St., to go to the selected schools to
Two years ago I participated in
these walks, along with my 10-
year-old daughter. It was wonder-
ful to see all the different faith com-
munities coming together with the
common understanding that
prayer changes things.
James declared in James 5:16b
the following: "The earnest prayer
of a righteous man (or woman)
has great power and wonderful
results." (Living Bible)
The founder of Methodism,
John Wesley stated: "God does
nothing but in answer to prayer."
Throughout the Old and New
Testament are examples of the
importance and power of prayer.
My dad had a sixth grade educa-
tion. In the U.S. Marine Corps he
declined promotions due to his
lack of education. He drilled in
each of his eight children the
importance of a good education.
There was never an option not to
finish high school. Five of us have
college degrees and two have mas-
With the break down of the
family, the task of teaching has
become more difficult. The partici-
pation of the parents or guardians
in the child's learning is crucial.

The Okeechobee County
School Board and all their employ-
ees are in need of our prayers.
We have such a unique oppor-
tunity here in Okeechobee. We
have the freedom to go to each of
these schools and pray. At most
schools, we are allowed to walk
inside the halls and pray over each
classroom. Superintendent of
Schools Dr. Patricia Cooper is sup-
portive of our prayer walk.
Will you give an hour to an
hour-and-a-half of your time each
Tuesday night in the month of
October to participate in praying
"Where the Diffel
for our schools?
If you are not able to walk
around and through the schools,

Heavenly Father watching as his
children come together united in
praying for our schools.
I will not be able to. be at the first
prayer walk because I will be out of
town at a minister's conference. I
plan to be at the rest of the prayer
I hope to see many of you there!
"If my people..."
