Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School's
newest state championship
team has qualified to go to
national competition in Indi-
anapolis,.Ind., in October to
represent not only Okee-
chobee but the state of Florida.
The Brahman
Agriculture/Mechanics team
recently took top honors at the
Florida Agriculture Mechanics
Career Development contest
held at Ridge Technical Center
in Winter Haven when they
beat our eight other district
winning teams.
The team consists of four
seniors Brent Hill, Jake
Johnson, Jesse Douglas and
A.J. Summerford. They were
coached by O.H.S. second-
year agriculture mechanics


teacher Brandon Weaver. .
"If it wasn't for agriculture
you wouldn't have anything at
the grocery store," stated Mr.
Weaver. "Agriculture is the
basis for everything, whetl2er
it's animal science, horticul-
ture, mechanics, the clothes
on your back, the food on your
table and the roof over your
head.
"There are no ifs, ands or
buts about it you've got to
have agriculture," ,he added.
The grueling two-day com-
petition began with a written
test about agriculture and
mechanics. The following
morning the team competed
as a group as well as individu-
ally in five areas.
They had to be able to accu-
rately cut a rafter to prove their
wood-working ability; figure
the average daily weight gain


of an animal based on two dif-
ferent buckets of feed; show
their proficiency in welding;
properly identify tools used on
animals; properly identify trac-
tor parts and hook up an elec-
trical connection; demonstrate
their ability to read topographi-
cal maps; and, answer ques-
tions about agricultural chemi-
cals.
When the final scores were
calculated, the Brahmans
stepped onto the stage as the
top team in Florida. In addition
to winning top team honors,
A.J. Summerford walked away
with individual top honors.
"We are extremely proud of
this team and of our entire
agriculture department," stat-
ed Okeechobee High School
Assistant Principal Mike Rade-

Man charged with possession of meth


A Lakeport man was arrested
on drug charges after a search
warrant was executed by mem-
bers of the Okeechobee Nar-
cotics Task Force on the garage
apartment where he had appar-
ently been living.
Stephen Bartley Milum, 48,
Milum Drive, Lakeport, was
arrested June 7 on the felony
charge of possession of metham-
phetamine. He was also arrested
on a misdemeanor charge of


possession of drug parapherna-
lia. He was booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail under a
bond of $8,000.
An Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) arrest affi-
davit indicates Milum had been
staying in a garage apartment
located on U.S. 98 N. for about
two months.
After the OCSO Special
Response Team secured the apart-
ment, task force members execut-


ed the search warrant where they
reportedly found suspected
methamphetamine residue on a
spoon, in four plastic baggies, on
an 8-inch piece of aluminum foil
that had been burnt on the bot-
tom and on some cotton balls.
The residue on these items
was field tested and indicated a
positive response for the pres-
ence of methamphetamine.
Milum reportedly told the offi-
cers he did not live in the apart-
__


ment. But,
when the offi-
cers spoke
with the
homeowners
they were told
that Milum had
paid them a
total of $900 in
rent for the last
two months, Stephen
stated the Milum
report.

opened by Knight.
Lt. Markham said when the
door was opened the deputies
could smell the marijuana. They
also saw a set of scales sitting on
a countertop, he added.
At that point, the room was
sealed and the deputies returned
to the sheriff's office to make
their application for a search
warrant. Once that was complet-
ed, the warrant was taken to a
judge, who approved it.
The deputies returned to the
motel around 6 a.m. and.began

NEGOTIATIONS: We are trying to find out when negotiAtions for
classified school employees be held. We have no representation any-
more and I called the school board and no one knows when the meet-
ing is. Do they not want us to come?
Editor's Note: We contacted school district officials and were told
those negotiations began Wednesday, June 7, and were also being
held Thursday, June 8. It was not known if those discussions would
continue through Friday, June 9.

ALL-STAR GAMES: I was wondering when the All-Star games will
be played for the 9 and 10 year olds?
Editor's Note: According to OCRA officials, the 9- and 10-year-old
All-Star games will start play in Okeechobee on Saturday, June 24.
The 13 and 14 year olds will begin play on July 1, also in Okeechobee.
No times have been set as of yet.

HORSES: For crying out loud, what is wrong with the neighbors of
these horses that died? You can't feed these poor rejected animals on
your own? Let them starve to death. God forgive you for being so stu-
pid and lazy.

THREE-FINGERED GLOVE: Can someone tell me why the giant
glove on top of the San Francisco stadium only has one thumb and
three fingers?

Guest Commentary



More support sought for Grace school


By Marie Brooks
principal, Grace Christian School
Thank you for publishing the
article about our school, written
by one of our rising seniors. We
are excited about the coming
school year and the many new
opportunities the Lord is provid-
ing for our school and its families.
Our enrollment for next year is
now up to 60 as of June 2. We
also have two local church con-
gregations who have pledged to
support our school as we make
the transition to being a commu-
nity school. This change is being
made with the full support and
blessing of the Grace Christian
Church Board.
Grace Christian Church started


this school in 1976 as a way of
providing a Christ-centered edu-
cation and as a ministry to the
families of our community. Their
many years of support and sacri-
fice have blessed countless chil-
dren in our community.
However, the church recog-
nizes that more support is needed
in order to continue to offer a
quality education; therefore, we
are appealing to local churches to
pray about providing not only
financial support, but more
importantly, spiritual leadership.
I am coming into this job with
12 years of teaching experience -
nine, of which, have been in
Christian schools. I am thrilled at
the opportunity to be part of the
.restructuring here at Grace. I wel-

come input from the members of
this community, as well as from
our Grace families as we begin
this process.
I want to strongly encourage
those who want a Christ-centered
education for their child to come
and enroll. There are limited
scholarships available, so it is
important to apply now. We have
an outstanding, dedicated faculty
who love children. We offer a pre-
school class and elementary pro-
gram, as well as a curriculum for
middle school and high school.
Our high school students will
also be able to take advantage of
Spanish, drama and culinary arts
classes. All students from kinder-
garten up will receive physical,
education daily. Elementary stu-


dents will also receive
literature/art classes and creative
presentations classes, which will
include public speaking, photog-
raphy and dance/interpretive
movement.
While there is a debt, we have
a workable budget established for
next year. With current enroll-
ment, we are approximately
halfway to meeting our budget.
We are trusting the Lord to pro-
vide the remainder of the finances
needed to operate the school.
Donations may be made by
churches, organizations, busi-
nesses and individuals and will
receive a tax-deductible receipt.
Even if you are unable to give
financially, we ask that you pray,
diligently for us.

The Okeechobee News, Friday, June 9, 2006


City to decide police chief's fate


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Special to Okeechobee News
BELLE GLADE The City of
Belle Glade is expected to make a
final determination on the fate of its
police chief, Albert Dowdell, in a
matter of weeks.
Mr. Dowdell will know, at a
hearing to be held later this month,
if he will be terminated or allowed
to continue to serve in the role of
chief of police.
Belle Glade City Manager Hous-
ton Tate provided the chief with a
letter for a pre-termination meeting
after a grand jury sharply criticized
the department in its investigation
of a shooting at a club last year.
Mr. Dowdell has been the sub-
ject of much speculation after the
grand jury's report was released a
week ago, which heavily criticized
the police department for failing to
carry through with a proper investi-
gation into the shooting last year.
The report depicts an unflatter-
ing picture of the police depart-
ment, and chastises the officers
tasked with covering the case for
mistakes made at the scene of the
crime and for failing to conduct a
thorough investigation.
On Oct. 7 of last year, Derrick


Bryant was shot in the parking lot
of Club 21, a local weekend hang-
out spot. The report references the
event.
Officer Leo Davis, his sergeant,
Jeffers Walker, and the chief were
singled out in the report. The offi-
cers, the report reads, put inaccu-
rate information on the report and
failed to interview witnesses at the
scene of the crime, among other
charges.
The grand jury ultimately said
the mistakes warranted criminal
charges be considered against the
chief of police. The next grand jury
is expected to act on determining
additional charges that may include
perjury, misuse of public power and
corruption and criminal contempt.
The investigation resulted after
visiting law enforcement officials
from High Springs and
Gainesville, in town last year offer-
ing their help in the post-hurri-
cane recovery efforts, expressed
concern at how the police depart-
ment was being managed. They
initiated the investigation.
In the wake of the report,
Dowdell was placed on administra-
tive leave of absence with pay by
City Manager Tate, pending the pre-
termination hearing.


"I asked him if he had ques-
tions," the manager remembered.
"He said he did not."
According to Mr. Tate, the report's
subject matter was serious enough
to warrant the city's attention.
The hearing, which should have
been held today, was postponed to
June 26 after Mr. Dowdell's new
legal representation asked for time
to review the case and prepare for
the meeting.
It will be at Mr. Tate's sole discre-
tion whether or not to move for-
ward with the termination. Mr. Tate
said he will listen to Mr. Dowdell's
attorney before making a final
determination.
With the power to hire and fire
assigned to the manager, the city
commission is unable to vote on
the issue.
"The grand jury is just one
view," said Mr. Tate. "We have to
hear the side of the chief."
Mr. Tate maintains that Mr.
Dowdell has done a good job as
chief.
"He has done very good work
for the city," he said earlier this
week. Still, he said referencing the
report, the city, "Had to take the
position that this was a serious doc-
ument."


Earlier this year, Mr. Dowdell
fought back criticisms of his depart-
ment after several known drug
users broke into the evidence room
of the former police department
building. The robbers took guns
from the evidence room, money
and other items, and sold them on
the streets for cash.
Nobody was assigned to check
the building and no cameras or
alarms were installed to notify
police if someone broke in. The
robberies spanned several weeks,
according to officials with the
police department.
The chief has also been the
focus of attacks from residents,
who say the department has expe-
rienced an inordinate level of
turnover at the department, is pro-
viding poor services and should be
transferred to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.,
Calipto Gonzalez, who heads
the department's detective division,
was named interim chief after Mr.
Dowdell's suspension.
It is the second time in Mr. Gon-
zalez's career that he is named the
interim chief. Mr. Gonzalez serx ed
as the interim chief after a similar:
scandal forced Pahokee's chief of
police out of his position.

Water plant in Clewiston moving forward


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Special to Okeechobee News
CLEWISTON Officials with
the city of Clewiston say plans to
construct a state-of-the-art water
plant in Clewiston are continuing'
to move forward according to
Schedule.
The new plant promises to
deliver some of the cleanest
drinking water in the state, allevi-
ating some of the problems asso-
ciated with drawing water directly
from Lake Okeechobee.,
Officials say the construction
'on the new reverse osmosis water
plant has begun.
The plant will produce clean
drinking water at a rate of 3 mil-
lion gallons per day and is expect-
ed to service the approximately


12,600 residents living in Hendry
and Glades counties, as well as
some areas of Palm Beach Coun-
ty.
The system will incorporate
the latest in water filtration tech-
nology, which is expected to pro-
vide a cleaner water supply to all
residents. Many residents today
purchase bottled water because
they refuse to drink Ite water
from the tap, something that will
change when the plant is up and
running, city leaders say.
The plant will be located
inside of the city's public works
compound off Olympia Street
and, according to city officials,
should be operational by August
of 2007.
According to documents pro-
vided by the city, the project is


moving forward as planned.
Three of the four production wells
have been completed and con-
tractors have started construction
of the main plant facility.
\\'hen finished, the plant will
remove the city's dependence on
the current water supply source,
U.S. Sugar's .water system that
currently pulls its water from Lake
Okeechobee, to a ground watery
supply.
At $21 million, the construc-
tion and design of the plant -is
expected to be paid through a
combination of federal and city
dollars and low-interest loans.
The city of Clewiston, qualify-
ing as a rural area, has sought
help from the USDA's Office of
Rural Development, the South
Florida Water Management Dis-


trict and the Federal Economic
Development Administration.
The majority of'the money, a
share of $14.5 million in loans and
$4 million in grants was provided
by the USDA office, completing
the full cost of the construction of
the new plant.
The engineers in charge of the
construction of this project are
Camp Dresser and McKee Engi-
neering Inc. of Palm Beach Coun-
ty. Contractors for the project are
Southeast Engineering and Youn-
quist Brothers Inc.
The issue will be discussed at
the next meeting of the city, June
19, when it is expected that the
commission will approve a reso-
lution in connection -with the
water plant.

FWC offers unique hunting opportunities


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is offering sportsmen
some unique hunting opportuni-
ties for the coming season.
The FWC is providing sports-
men mobility-impaired hunts,-
supervised youth hunts, family
hunts, quail hunts and track vehi-
cle and airboat hunts on selected
wildlife management areas
(WMAs).
Worksheets are available at
FWC regional offices and online
at MyFWC.com.'hunting under
"Limited Entry Hunts." The peri-
od for submitting applications to
be included in the random draw-,
ings begins 10 a.m. (EDT) June 20:
until July 7. Applications may be
submitted through the Internet, at
tax collectors' offices or at any
license agent. Applications are no
longer accepted by mail.


Mobility-impaired hunts are
for persons who require special
equipment. These hunts are not
. intended for hunters who have a
Florida Disabled Person Hunting
and Fishing Certificate, but rather
those who are permanently con-
fined to a wheelchair, persons
who require the use of mechani-
cal aids (crutches and walkers) to
walk or those with complete sin-
gle-leg amputations.
Another unique hunt is for
hunters 8-15 years old. Two
WMAs in' the North Central ;
Region. (Camp Blanding and'
Andrews) offer opportunities for
non-hunting adults to supervise
'.young hunters on public hunting
areas where the number of
hunters and the hunting areas are
rigidly controlled to provide an
.optimum learning experience
and maximum safety. These


hunts are popular, and the num-
ber of applicants exceeds the
number of spaces available each
year.
The new Lafayette. Creek
WMA as well as Matanzas,
Andrews, Devil's Hammock and
Dinner Island WMAs will offer
family hunts this year. Applicants
age 18 or older may apply for a
permit. The permit holder is
required to bring one to two chil-
dren ages 8-15. Unlike the youth
hunt, the family hunt allows the
adult supervisor to hunt with the
children.
A quota hunt permit will be
required to hunt quail on the
Blackwater WMA Hutton Unit
and Blackwater Field Trial Area in
the Northwest Region. There are
seven two-day hunts available on
the Hutton Unit and two four-day
hunts on the Field Trial Area. The


quota is two groups per hunt on
the Hutton Unit and three groups
per hunt on the Field Trial Area. A
group may consist of up to three
hunters. Shooting hours end at 3
p.m., and the bag limit is 12 quail
per group per day.
Wildlife management areas in
the southern part of the state offer
hunters an unusual challenge
because of their open-marsh
landscape. Hunting these areas
requires special vehicles, and the
FWC has established quotas on
the number of vehicles allowed.
Permits to operate track vehicles
on Rotenberger, Everglades and
Francis S. Taylor and Holey Land
WMAs, and permits to operate
airboats on Everglades and Fran-
cis S. Taylor WMA are issued in
two random drawings.
