Judge to decide ARC's fate


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
After being debated for a year,
the fate of the Association of
Retarded Citizens (ARC) of Okee-
chobee will now be decided by a
judge.
At their meeting on Thursday,
.May 12, the Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners
voted to ask the court for a
declaratory action. This means
that a judge will listen to all the
facts in the case and decide if


"We want a determination they should, like-
wise, want a determination,"
John Cassels, county attorney


ARC is in default on their lease.
After the hurricanes of 2004,
ARC moved from their county-
leased space in the old hospital
building on N.W. Second Avenue
to a much smaller space in Cedar
Plaza.
Since that time, county com-
missioners have been debating


whether or not ARC was in
default on their lease for aban-
doning the property and drop-
ping the required insurance.
"Without a doubt the land-
scape of this whole issue has
changed 'markedly in the last
year," stated County Attorney
John Cassels. "It's not the same

Friday, May 12. Mr. Holerger is a former Crime Prevention coordinator with the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office and was diagnosed with ALS Lou Gehrigs' Disease. The
benefit raised $3,000, which will help with Mr. Holerger's medication. Mr. Holerger and

confrontation as it was a year
ago, and its not as clear this year
as itwas in May of last year."
As an option, he said the com-
missioners could waive the
breach of contract and accept the
promises of ARC "to sin no
more."
However, the option he rec-
ommended was to ask a court to
test the actions of ARC to deter-
mine if the alleged contract
breaches are sufficient to termi-
nate the lease.
"It is the most conservative


way to adjudicate your rights as
opposed to the ARC's rights," he
asserted, "without just going and
bulldozing down the building.
"We want a determination -
they should, likewise, want a
determination," he continued.
Mr. Cassels said ARC claimed
they never vacated the property
because they are storing some
records there.

Lakeport man


indicted on


porn charges


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
FORT MYERS A Lakeport
man was indicted May 11 on
federal charges for allegedly
having sex with his 10-year-old
adopted son, as well as the
transmission of child pornogra-
phy.
Michael
James Tyler,
34, of Lake-
port, is wait-
ing to be
transferred
from his cell
in the Glades
County Jail
in Moore Mchael
Haven to the Michaelr
Lee. County James Tyler
Jail.
Tyler was originally arrested
in early April by the Glades
County Sheriff's Office (GCSO).
At that time he was charged
with 157 counts of possession
of photographs of the sexual


performance of a child, six
counts of transmission of child
pornography, two counts of
distributing obscene material
and one count of obscene
communication via the com-
puter. His bond was set at
$915,000.
Even if Tyler were able to
post that bond, he would not
be released because federal
authorities have placed a hold
on him.
.Chief Assistant U.S. Attorney
Doug Molloy said in a tele-
phone interview Friday, May 12,
that Tyler will be transferred
next week to the Lee County
Jail where he will be held with-
out bond.
"At this time," he said, "it's
not been determined what to
do with the state charges."
Mr. Molloy said that will be
left up to the state.
Mr. Molloy said he is only

Salvation Army helps


in times of disasters


By D. Hamilton
Okeechobee News
Eloise Brown of the Salva-
tion Army's Okeechobee Ser-
vice Unit spoke to Kiwanis Club
members at Thursday's club
meeting.
She began by telling club
members that the center is
located in the New Horizons
building, and shares office
space with Habitat for Humani-
ty. She said the Salvation Army is
thankful to Habitat for Humani-
ty, and also to Rebuilding Okee-
chobee After Disaster
(R.O.A.D.) for allowing them to
occupy the office space rent
free, which allows the charita-
ble organization to operate on a
very low budget with more
funding available for communi-


ty needs.
Mrs. Brown said the Kettle
Campaign, which collects dona-
tions during the holidays,
received more than $22,000.
She said approximately 30 per-
cent of those funds are used for
administrative costs and for a
camp for needy children.
She also told club members
that $25,000 was received in
direct donations with only 10
percent being used to cover
overhead expenses.
"More than $37,000
remained in Okeechobee to be
used for those in need," she
said, adding that the organiza-
tion has over $34,000 remaining
to serve local residents in need.
The guest speaker gave club
members a list of services that
are available through the Salva-


tion Army. She said that people
in need are screened and inter-
viewed and a determination is
made following the interview.
Some of the needs, she
explained, are living expenses
such as assistance with electric
and utility bills, rent and mort-
gage assistance, prescriptions,
food, basic phone service due
to medical need and a camp for
needy children.
In special situations, she
continued, the Salvation Army
will assist a needy family with
funeral expenses.
Mrs. Brown also mentioned
a program that provides Christ-
mas for children whose parents
are incarcerated.

Clarification

In the "300 motorcyclists honor fallen officers" article that
appeared on page 1 of the May 12 Okeechobee News, Shirley Gill
was identified as the wife of Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
Corporal Clif Gill. It was inadvertently left out that Cpl. Gill's wife
is a deputy with the St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office and took
part in the May 6 event.

originally leased to the ARC," he
said.
. He stated that ARC officials
indicate they should be given a
couple of million dollars to move,
while the county only charges a
dollar year to lease the building.
The attorney said that there are
issues as to what would be the
"highest and best use" of the
property. He stated that some
would say that ARC should be
allowed to rebuild, and some
would advocate ARC vacating the
property.
Commission chairman John
Abney read a prepared statement
recounting the history of the
county's support of ARC. He
noted that paragraph seven of the
1992 lease between the two par-
ties requires ARC to have insur-

The guest speaker told club
members how the Salvation
Army has helped through times of
disaster giving, and how donated
funds are spent. She said that
within the southern territory's 15
states, including the District of
Columbia, more than $360 mil-
lion has been donated in relief
funds for victims of hurricanes
Katrina, Rita and Wilma.
Of that amount, she contin-
ued, more than $140 million has
already been disbursed in the

planning on pursuing the six
counts of transmission of child
pornography.
"At the federal level, the mini-
mum mandatory sentence is 15
years on each count," he said.
However, Mr. Molloy said the
case is still under investigation,
because Tyler reportedly gave his
on's friends ecstasy, oxycodone
a'id alcohol.
Tyler's adopted son is current-


ance on the building.
He said that for a time ARC had
insurance. However, damage.
assessments after the hurricanes
of 2004 revealed that ARC did not
have insurance. Then, the county
attorney and county staff stated
that ARC was in default of their
lease because of lack of insurance
and abandonment of the premis-
es. These charges have been
denied by ARC.
Mr. Abney mentioned the
county's proposal to lease airport
property to the ARC, but there
was a question if the Federal Avia-
tion Administration (FAA) would
approve such a non-aviation use
of airport property.
Then, he went on to say that
on April 13 the county offered
ARC $150,000 to relocate.
In response to that offer, the
county received a letter on April
25 refusing that offer and making
a counter offer of $2,550,000.
Mr. Abney noted that for a year


organization's Phase One of the
relief efforts. Phase Two of the
relief effort is set to begin and put
forth another $155 million for the
long-term recovery plan for
Louisiana and Mississippi.
To help implement the plan,
the Salvation Army has signed
agreements with a number of
organizations including Habitat
for Humanity, Project Teamwork
and the Southern Baptist Relief
Fund. She said the magnitude of
the rebuilding project is much too
large for the organization to han-
dle alone.
"The Salvation Army respond-
ed immediately following hurri-


ly with his grandparents, said
GCSO Captain Daryl Lewis.
In regard to his original arrest,
Capt. Lewis said Tyler reportedly
took photos of himself allegedly
having sex with the children.
These photos, he continued, were
retrieved from the hard drive of
Tyler's computer by the U.S.
Secret Service.
Capt. Lewis stated in an earlier
interview that all of the victims
were boys between the ages of 14
and 17. The alleged incidents
were all committed in Tyler's
home, he added.
A separate search done on


commissioners have tried to
achieve a solution. He said they
waived possible default action
numerous times, while acting in
good faith to resolve the situation.
"I am personally disappointed
a solution has not been
achieved," he asserted.
He also expressed disappoint-
ment at what he called the local
media's perception that the board
was throwing the ARC's board of
directors and clients out in the
street. -
"That is not true," he asserted.
He said the county has "rea-
sonable need" for the property
occupied by ARC.
"The present status of the
building is uninhabitable, with
estimates of $500,000 to $600,000
to do the necessary repairs," he
stated. "We have tried objectively
for over a year to reach agreement
without success so.where, or who
is at fault? Is it time for someone
else to look at the facts and direct


canes Katrina, Rita and Wilma
and served the immediate needs
of survivors by providing shelter,
food, water, ice, baby supplies,
cleaning needs and personal
needs. The Army is always in
need of volunteers to help provide
services for those in need," Mrs.
Brown said.
She added that monetary
donations continue to be accept-
ed for victims of last year's hurri-
canes, even as it prepares for the
possibility of new storms for the
2006 season.
In other Kiwanis Club busi-
ness, club treasurer Frank Irby
announced that more than $6,000


April 23 recovered more discs and
CDs, said Capt. Lewis. He went on
to say that divers Sergeant Shan-
non Peterson, Deputy, Brian
Hagan and Detective Richard Dur-
fee from the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) also
retrieved another of Tyler's com-
puters, as well as a video camera
and video tape from a canal. He
said Tyler reportedly threw the
items into the canal.
"They (the divers) found an
8mm video tape that had been in
the water about two weeks," he
said.
Capt. Lewis said federal


a course of action?"
The chairman spoke out in
favor of seeking a court determi-
nation if ARC's actions are serious
enough to terminate the lease.
However, he said that if the
court decides there is not a sub-
stantial default, the board must be
prepared to relocate ARC accord-
ing to the terms of the lease.
The lease stipulates that if the
county should have need of the
property, the county would relo-
cate ARC on other county proper-
ty at the county's expense.
"The ARC, prior to the hurri-
canes of 2004, made a conscious
decision to drop the insurance on
that building," stated Commis-
sioner Elvie Posey. "I think that in
doing so they did create a default
in the lease."
ARC attorney Colin Cameron
was in the commission chambers
but did not address the issue.


was collected from the club's
35th annual pancake breakfast
fundraiser. Proceeds from the
breakfast will benefit the annual
scholarship fund.
Mr. Irby also presented a check
to Matt Buxton to support the
18th annual Grad Night program
to be held on Tuesday, May 30, at
the Stardust Lanes Bowling Alley.
Club member Dowling Wat-
ford announced a special pro-
gram to be held Thursday, May
25, in honor of Memorial Day.
Kiwanis Club meetings are
held every Thursday at noon at
the Village Square Restaurant, 301
W. South Park St.


authorities were able to retrieve
more evidence off the video tape.
He went on to say that the Secret
Service was unable to retrieve any
evidence from the computer
because it was too badly dam-
aged by being in the water.
Since Tyler has only lived in
Lakeport for a little over a year,
authorities are "actively looking
for other victims," said Mr. Molloy.
"He's clean," said Capt. Lewis
in an April interview. "He
bounces around, that's why he's
stayed under the radar. He's lived
in Broward and Dade counties, as
well as in Melbourne."

all be speaking an American Indian language. We all live here because
of the diversity our country offers.

RR CROSSING: How long is it going to take to fix the railroad tracks.
It was supposed to start May 1, still haven't started them. Thanks to
them, I broke the front end shocks of my car. So get on them and get

Child care providers are not appreciated


By Olan Faulk

The Early Learning Coalition
of Indian River, Martin, and Okee-
chobee counties in conjunction
with childcare organizations
nationwide declared Friday, May
12, as Child Care Provider Appre-
ciation Day.
This was a special day to rec-
ognize child care providers,
teachers and educators of young
children everywhere. This day is
appropriately celebrated each
year on the Friday before Moth-
er's Day. It is a means to recog-
nize the tireless efforts of
providers who care for children
of working parents.


A recent national study, The
National Economic Impacts of
the Child Care Sector sponsored
by the National Child Care Associ-
ation, shows that there are at least
2.8 million people who derive
their income from teaching and
caring for young children or by
working in directly related jobs.
Over the past decade, the
demand for child care has
increased. Who's minding the
kids is crucial. Childcare Provider
Appreciation Day is held so every-
one can appreciate the number
and importance of child care
workers.
The early childhood education
profession plays a critical role in

preparing children to enter
school ready to learn, supports
healthy families and children and
is a key part of the local and
national economy. In our three
counties alone the Early Learning
Coalition ($15 million) and Head
Start ($6 million) infuse over $21
million per year into local com-
munities.
Today's child care providers
are the world's unsung heroes.
The child care profession is one
of the most underpaid occupa-
tions in. the country; yet early
childhood is the most critical
developmental period for all chil-
dren.
Parents and community lead-


ers are encouraged to show their
appreciation for child care
providers through a variety of
means such as a simple note or
just a heartfelt thank you.
Child care providers are often
unrecognized and under-appreci-
ated.
It takes a special person to
work in this field and their contri-
bution to the quality of family life
frequently goes unnoticed -
until now.

WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starling to look at houses, find out what pnce 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 pnce you can afford to pay for a home will depend on si>
factors:






Lenders also analyze your income in relation to r our projected cost of home
S ownersnip and outstanding debts to determine the sdze loan eou car hases

11 Hymer says your housing experis&-tc-income raho is determined by calculating
your protected monthly housing expense, winch consists of the principal and
interest payment on )our new home loan. property taxes and hazard insurance
z;7 The sum oi these costI is referred to as "Pt TlI Monthly homeowners association
dues if you're purchasing a condominium or lownhouse. and pnvate mortgage
insurancee are added to the PITI
,:5' Your housing expense. o-,ncome ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders wIll go higher under certain circumstances
a "i Your total debt-lo-,icome ratio s.houbd be in the 34 to 38 percent range

By Dr. Randy Huckabee,
Senior pastor of First Baptist
church of Okeechobee
"Henceforth I call you not ser-
vants; for the servant knoweth not
what his lord doeth: but I have
called you friends...." John 15:15a
In the. Old Testament, Abra-
ham was referred to as the
"Friend of God". I always thought,
"How neat it must be to be called
a friend of God!" I have been told
by several sociologists that we are
fortunate if we have more than
two or three real friends in this
world. Most of us are blessed
With many acquaintances, but a
friend is hard to find. A friend is
not one who stands in judgment
over you. A friend is one who is
willing to overlook your faults in
favor of the wonderful traits you
do possess. A friend is one who is
always ready to assist you in a
time of need. A friend is one who
is willing to be transparent with
you. A friend is one who is willing
to risk the relationship when there
is a need for honesty that could be
hard to accept. A friend is one
who can say just about anything
in love and you will receive it. A
friend will never forget you even
though time and distance may
come betw\ een the two ofyou..
When w\e think of all of those
characteristics, there are not that
many real friends out there.
Thankfully, the church is a place
\\ here ',ou can find more than the,

average of two or three according
to the world's standards. I can
think of a dozen or more people
that I could call on at anytime day
or night and they would be there
for me. The Lord has blessed me
with many friends over the years
and in many places. Yet, there is.
nothing more exciting than.to
read the words of Jesus and hear
Him declare that we are His
friend! Did you get that? He loves
you not just as His creation but
desires for you to be his friend!
The Lord \rants to have friends
with whom He can share his
plans and purpose. It is great to
.know that He \\ ill always be there
for us, even when we choose to
not be where He wants us. His
love is unconditional. His desires
for us are always the best. He has
a goal of one day welcoming
many of us into His physical pres-
ence where we can enjo. each
other forever! But then again, w\hy
wait? We can enjoy His presence
now! He will fill your heart with
His peace and love. He 'ill give
you all the truth and direction you
need. He will be a counselor to
you that will never lead you down
the wrong path. He will listen as
long as you are willing to talk. He
will always be there for you and
me. He is not just a friend. He is
our best friend! Why don't you
start calling on Him more often?
You will then realize just what He
means to you. It's just a thought.
