Students place
at Nationals
Thirty-three local Taekwon-
do students from Russ Adams
Taekwondo America attended
national competition on March
17 and 18 at the Sheraton World
Resort in Orlando. This national
event was originally scheduled
to take place in New Orleans in
January but had to be resched-
uled due to the hurricane dam-
age in that city. The money
earned by a special golf tourney
in October at the Okeechobee
Golf and Country Club helped
make the trip possible for many
of the students.

Bombs kill
at least 13
BAGHDAD, Iraq (AP) A
car bomb exploded Tuesday in
a mostly Shiite area of eastern
Baghdad, killing at least, 10 and
wounding 28, police said.
Another blast killed a woman
and two of her young sons in
the capital, officials added.
The latest violence came
after the U.S. military reported
the deadliest day in almost
three months for American
service members in the Iraq
war. Ten U.S. troops died,
including five Marines killed in a
vehicle accident in western
Iraq. Two Marines and a sailor
were still missing after the truck
overturned near Asad air base.

COE makes
lake releases
J.. ACKSONVILLE The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District began a 10-day
Level I pulse release Friday,
March 31, from Lake Okee-
chobee to both the Caloosa-
hatchee River and the St. Lucie
Canal.
Pulse releases are designed
to mimic nature and provide
discharges from the lake to the
estuaries via the St. Lucie Canal
to the east and the Caloosa-
hatchee River to the west. The
last two days of the 10-day,
Level 1 pulse release consists of
an average daily flow of 500 cfs
to the Caloosahatchee and no
releases to the St. Lucie. The
goal is to strike a balance
between the health of the lake's
littoral zone and the health of
the estuaries.

iner's Office six days before they
could finally determine the identi-
fication of the victims. Curtis and
Miss Johnson were identified
through their dental records.
"I couldn't be happier," said
James 'The Fatman' Tenney, Cur-
tis' father. "The Okeechobee sher-
iff's office did what they said
they'd do."
Mr. Tenney said his son would
often call him by the nickname,
'The Fatman'.
"It's nothing against me," said
'The Fatman'. "We worked
together and that's what he called
me. It wasn't any disrespect, it
was just something between me
and him we were buddies."
According to OCSO Lieutenant
William Markham, Alvarez was
arrested around 1:25 p.m. Mon-
day by OCSO. Deputy Michael
Hazellief in the Whispering Pines
subdivision. Alvarez,was wanted
on a take-and-hold warrant that
charged him with violation of pro-
bation on the misdemeanor
charges of loitering and prowling,
obstruction and criminal mis-
chief. Those charges stem from
Alvarez's April 2005 arrest by
OCSO Corporal Jack Nash.
According to Lt. Markham, the
juvenile was arrested for allegedly
spray painting the entrance wall
to Basswood.
However, according to Mon-
day afternoon's shift supervisor
OCSO Sergeant Robert Coleman
the juvenile tried to avoid arrest by
fleeing from Deputy Hazellief.
"Initially, he pushed Deputy
Hazellief to get away from him,"


w mm 4dm- w-

p mom *b wp- 4


said Sgt. Coleman.
The sergeant said Alvarez then
fled on foot and was caught in
about 15 minutes and without
any further incident.
Sgt. Coleman said Deputy
Hazellief was not injured.
Alvarez was then charged with
battery on a law enforcement offi-
cer and resisting arrest with vio-
lence by Deputy Hazellief.
Sgt. Coleman said at the time
of Alvarez's arrest, he did not
know that the teen was a person
of interest in the deaths of Curtis
Tenney and Miss Johnson.
"He has been a person of inter-
est from the start," said Sheriff
Paul May.
Lt. Markham said that attached
to the warrant was a note that told
the officers to contact Detective
Brock in the event Alvarez was
arrested.
At this point in the investiga-
tion, Lt. Markham said they can-
not release any information per-
taining to the motive in the
alleged slaying. Nor, is. any infor-
mation being released as to the
type of handgun supposedly used
by Alvarez.
OCSO Major Noel Stephen
said Alvarez will have his first
appearance hearing, and will stay
in juvenile detention for the time
being.
"The state attorney has 21 days
to direct file," said Maj. Stephen.
"At that time, it's likely he will be
charged as an adult. If he is
charged as an adult, he will be
brought back here (to the Okee-
chobee County Jail)."
Maj. Stephen said at that point
it will be up to the state as to what
type of bond will be sought.
"With the severity of the
charges ... it will be our recom-


- op


mendation that he receive no
bond," continued Maj. Stephen.
"I hope he gets the death
penalty," said Mr. Tenney. "I want
the death penalty. He took some-
thing from me that can never be
replaced."
But not only did the family lose
a son and a brother, they also lost
their mobile home to fire.
At 12:41 p.m. on Saturday, Jan.
28 just 20 days after the deaths
of Curtis and Miss Johnson the
sheriff's office and Okeechobee
County Fire/Rescue Department
were called to the family's home
on N.E. 62nd Ave. The home was
engulfed in flame, and was
destroyed by the blaze.
"They set fire to my son's
truck, which caught my trailer on
fire with my three other children
inside," said Mr. Tenney.
Mr. Tenney said while he was
at a local department store, a
1993 Chevrolet S-10 pickup
belonging to Curtis suspiciously
caught fire. And since the truck
was only 2- to 3-feet from the Ten-
ney's mobile home, the trailer
then caught fire. '
Mr. Tenney said his three sons
- ages 4, 15 and 20, along with a
neighbor's child were in the
home when the fire started. They
were not injured.
"I thought they were after the
rest of my family," said Mr. Ten-
ney. "That's why we got out of
Okeechobee.
"You won't take it to my face,,
but you take it to my kids. If you
want me, here I am. I'm not afraid
of any man, but I am afraid for my
family. I've got three other boys
yet. I have to keep watch over
them and make sure nothing hap-
pens to them," he continued
Mr. Tenney said he couldn't


- ~ ~ m ~

_ -~


move the truck because he didn't
have the keys Curtis had them.
The truck fire has been ruled
as arson by the fire marshal, said
Mr. Tenney, but the burning of his
home was ruled as accidental
even though it was caused by the
truck fire.
"Right now,, it appears to be a
:unique coincidence," said OCSO
Detective Captain Dale LaFlam.
"We are assisting the fire marshal
in the case."
Sheriff May added that "we
have no indication at this point
that the fire is connected (to the
deaths of Curtis Tenney and Miss
Johnson)."
Although Mr. Tenney feels the
deaths and the subsequent fires
are connected,. he has no idea
who "they" are. He only knows
that he had to get his family out of
Okeechobee.
"I won't tell anybody where
my family is, and I won't bring
them back until I know this is all
over with," he said.
But according to Maj. Stephen,
this case is not over.
"This (Alvarez) was our pri-
mary target, but we still have
some other information and
avenues to follow," he said.
For now, however, Sheriff May
hopes the arrest will, in some
way, help the families.
"Our hearts go out to the fami-
lies," he said. "We hope this gives
them some closure."
But for Mrs. Tenney, only dark-
ness looms where her son once
stood.
"He was a good boy; he was
caring; he could light up a room,"
she said. "But, I don't have that
shining light anymore."

PROM: This is about the high school prom. I heard that prom tick-
ets are costing $100? Is this true? How can people in a rural town
afford this? I sure hope someone else comes up with a better idea.
(Editor's Note: We contacted Okeechobee High School and were
told that this year's prom will be held at the KOA Convention Center
on May 6. Tickets are $35 per person, or $50 per couple.)

FINAL FOUR: I am not a big Gator fan, but I am a Florida fan. I enjoy
representing our state when we get to go to a finale such as the Gators
to the Final Four. Hats off to the Florida Gators, you represent our fine
'state well.
(Editor's Note: Congratulations to the Gators who beat UCLA 73-57
Monday night and are now the NCAA men's basketball champions.)

BURN VICTIM: My family and I went to a fundraiser for an 11-year-
old burn victim named Devin Hoyle a while back. We don't know him
or his family, but I was just wondering if someone could give us an
update on how he is doing.
(Editor's Note: He is back in school, and according to school offi-
cials he is doing well.)

Miami history recalled

by Okeechobee citizen


On Saturday, March 25, one of
Okeechobee's citizens, Alice Wal-
ters Wallace, was the featured
guest speaker at the Historical
Museum of Southern Florida. She
is the daughter of Capt. Richard J.
Walters, owner of the Barkentine
sailing ship, "Prins Valdemar"
which was later transformed into
the Miami Aquarium in 1928. She
spoke to an audience of seventy
people about the many uses her
father made of the ship from 1922
to 1950.
It had carried necessary build-
ing supplies for the boom era of
Miami in the mid-1920s. It was to
be converted into a luxury 100-
room floating hotel but prior to its
grand opening on Jan. 28, 1926,
the ship keeled over in the Miami
Channel during a strong north-
easter. The ship blocked all har-
bor traffic for six weeks before it
could be righted and moved to
another berth.
Ms. Wallace spoke of the per-
sonal side of growing up around
the Miami Aquarium that her
father had the fallen ship convert-
ed into by 1928. The Aquarium
along Biscayne Bay served as a
major tourist attraction in Miami
for 22 years. She then donated to
the Museum's Director of Educa-
tion, Mara Zapala, the family arti-
facts on the "Prins Valdemar" and
Miami Aquarium, which included
blueprints, documents, photos
and an original spoon with the

ship's name engraved on it.
Joining Mrs. Wallace was her
goddaughter and namesake,
Alice Kershaw Luckhardt from
Stuart, who had researched the
historical events surrounding the
ship. From the research she
wrote a magazine article and pro-
duced a photo slide presentation,
which w\as shown during the His-
torical Museum's lecture.
A group of about twenty indi-
viduals from Okeechobee and
Stuart were guests of Mrs. Wal-
lace and Mrs. Luckhardt and
drove down to Miami to hear the
lecture at the Museum.

COE makes releases

from Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE The U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District began a 10-day
Level 1 pulse release Friday,
March 31, from Lake Okee-
chobee to both the Caloosahatch-
ee River and the St Lucie Canal.
Pulse releases are designed to
mimic nature and provide dis-
charges from the lake to the estu-
aries via the St Lucie Canal to the
east and the Caloosahatchee
River to the west. The last two
days of the 10-day, Level 1 pulse
release consists of an average
daily flow of 500 cfs to the
Caloosahatchee and no releases
to the St. Lucie. The goal is to
strike a balance between the
health of the lake's littoral zone
- and the health of the estuaries.
Typically, in 10 days, a Level 1
pulse release to the Caloosa-
hatchee River and the St. Lucie
canal can lower the lake 0.10 ft.; a
Level 2 release can lower it by
0.14 ft.; and a Level 3 by 0.18 ft.
Today's lake level is 14.64 feet-
NGVD, which is 0.12 feet lower
.: than lastweek.


In the future, the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP) will provide storage for
much of this water and reduce the
need for these types of releases.
Jacksonville District has begun
an in-depth study of the decision-
making process for Lake Okee-
chobee freshwater releases.
Issues being scrutinized include
weather patterns, hurricane sea-
son predictions, impacts on the
estuarine ecosystem, water sup-
ply, lake ecology, and input from
Kissimmee River Basin regulatory
discharges.
Water level data and flows for
Lake Okeechobee and the Central
and Southern Florida Project can
be found on the Jacksonville Dis-
trict web site, water management
page, at
http://www.saj.usace.army.miVh
2o/index.htm.
For further information, please
call the Jacksonville District Cor-
porate. Communication Office at
(904)-232-2236 or (cell) (904)-
614-4976.


Teams adapt fire plans to the weather


ALTAMONTE SPRINGS -
Dry weather has produced arid
conditions in Florida, increasing
the threat of wildfire. As Nature
Conservancy fire managers have
noted the dry weather trend over
the past few weeks, they contin-
ue to alter their prescribed burn
In addition to being more
attentive to arid "fuel loads," the
accumulation of flammable
underbrush that fuels wildfires,
fire teams must be more aware
of the stresses on wetlands. Wet-
lands are ofthn used in pre-
scribed fires as "breaks" to con-
tain the fire within a certain
boundary. During dry periods,


wetlands can become desiccat-
ed, allowing fire to burn through
them Prescribed fire plans are
thus altered to avoid negatively
impacting wetlands.
"We are taking into account
the dry conditions when we plan
our prescribed fires. We'll con-
tinue to actively conduct pre-
scribed fires as long as we are
permitted to," said Zachary
Prusak, The Nature Conservan-
cy's Florida fire manager. "We.
are always extremely careful in
conducting a prescribed fire; we
pay close attention to the critical
factors of wind speed, fuel load-
ing and relative humidity."


Groups intervene on behalf of wildlife


Naples An administrative
judge has ruled in favor of the Flori-
da Department of Environmental
Protection's efforts to reserve water
for fish and wildlife protection and
Everglades restoration under Flori-
da Water Law. The ruling is a victo-
ry for the environment in South-
west Florida because it upholds the
intent of Florida Water Law that
water flows, in the Caloosahatchee
River for instance, can be reserved
for restoration of natural systems
from use by new development or
agricultural irrigation.
Two years ago, the Association
of Florida Community Developers
(AFCD) filed a challenge to a pro-
posed rule by the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
(FDEP), which was an effort to
apply the provision in Florida Water
Law allowing water management
. districts to reserve water from con-
sumptive use permits for protec-
tion of fish and wildlife and public
health. AFCD and its members,
which include many of the largest
Southwest Florida developers, first
tried to amend the statute in the
legislature over the course of two
legislative sessions to make funda-
mental changes to Fjorida Water
Law. The challenged portions of
the Water Reservations Rule were
upheld by the administrative judge
and by final order of FDEP.
The rule elaborates on the pur-
poses for which the Water Manage-
ment Districts may reserve water
from consumptive use permits,
including to protect state parks and
public lands and Outstanding Flori-
da Waters, and to prevent sinkhole
formation and saltwater intrusion.
It also allows for water officials to
reserve water that will be made
available by future resource
restoration projects, including Ever-
glades Restoration.
"This is an important win for
southwest Florida. The environ-
ment and development are not


'Water is clearly the lifeblood of our region, and we,
alongwith our partners in this case, are pleased that
the judge has reaffirmed the importance of protect-
ing natural systems in Florida Water Law"
Andrew McElwaine, Conservancy of Southwest Fla


mutually exclusive. If too much
water is siphoned from our rivers
during the dry season for human
use, then our bays and estuaries
suffer, which impacts our tourism-
based economy, as well as our
sport fishing businesses." stated
Andrew McElwaine, President and


CEO of the Conservancy of South-
west Florida. "Water is clearly the
lifeblood of our region, and we,
along with our partners in this case,
are pleased that the judge has reaf-
firmed the importance of protect-
ing natural systems in Florida Water
Law."


Four environmental groups and
two water management districts
intervened in the hearing in sup-
port of the FDEP and provided legal
counsel and other support to the
defense of the Water Reservations
Rule: Conservancy of Southwest
Florida, The National and Florida
Audubon Societies, the Everglades
Foundation, and the St. John's
River and South Florida Water Man-
-agement Districts. The groups are
hopeful that the AFDC will not
appeal the decision and will contin-
ue to work toward the adoption of
an effective water resources rule.
