Miami man facing charges of burglary


A Miami Beach man has been
booked into the Okeechobee
County Jail after he allegedly
broke into and ransacked a travel
trailer on S.R. 78 West, and did an
estimated $1,000 in damage to
the trailer and its contents.
Kyle Winthorp Davis, 48, was
charged with criminal mischief
over $1,000, burglary and theft.
His bond has been set at $31,000.
According to an arrest report
by Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) Deputy Randy
Thomas, he was dispatched to
the trailer shortly after noon on
Sunday, July 30, in regard to a bur-

glary in progress.
While in route, he was con-
tacted by fellow deputy Thomas
Kitchen who asked that Deputy
Thomas 'step it up.' Deputy
Kitchen was already at the scene
and "had the suspect at gunpoint
and the suspect was throwing
knives."
The suspect, wrote Deputy
Thomas, was throwing paring
knives at the ground and did not
threaten Deputy Kitchen. The
knives, he wrote, were from the
trailer and he was throwing them
to the ground as if he was discard-
ing them.
A witness told the deputies that

they saw Davis standing in the
doorway of the travel trailer -
talking to himself. When he report-
edly saw the witness, he went
back inside the trailer.
As another witness approached
the trailer, Davis threw some items
from the trailer. When the witness
asked Davis what he was doing,
the Miami man said he "was work-
ing," wrote Deputy Thomas, and
asked the witness for a cigarette.
The deputy said in his report
that Davis had no identification
and could not tell him his date of
birth. Deputy Thomas said the
man continually talked to himself.
"He would answer questions

and go back talking to himself,"
wrote Deputy Thomas. "Kyle was
speaking so softly when he was
speaking to himself that I could
not hear what he was saying."
The deputy's report states that
several items from inside the trail-
er were found on a concrete slab
outside, and that the screen door
was broken in half and two win-
dow blinds had been cut down.
Inside, cabinets were found sit-


ting on the table
while linens, blanket
items were found st

was booked into the Okeechobee
County Jail under a bond of
$10,000. Palacios was also
charged with possession of
cocaine and possession of drug
paraphernalia. His bond was also
set at $10,000. Martin was
charged with possession of
cocaine, possession of drug para-
phernalia and resisting arrest
without violence. Her bond was


set at $10,500.
OCSO arrest reports indicate a
search warrant was served on
Mitchell's home shortly after 8
p.m. on Monday, July 31, by
members of the OCSO Special
Response Team and the Okee-
chobee Narcotics Task Force.
After entering the home,
Mitchell and Palacios were placed
under arrest. Martin, according to
reports, fled from the home on
foot but was caught about two
blocks from the house by OCSO
Lieutenant William Markham, a
member of the SRT team.


"She went, out the side door
and through the backyard," said
Lt. Markham. "I found her walk-
ing around at S.W. 1lth Avenue
and S.W. Eighth Court."
The OCSO reports indicate that
a substance suspected of being
cocaine rock, worth an estimated
$30, was found in a bedroom
along with two pipes commonly
used to smoke cocaine.
The substance was field tested
and indicated a positive result for
the presence of cocaine.
According to Lt. Markham,
there is an outstanding misde-


ineanor warrant calling for Mar-
tin's arrest on a charge of failure
to appear possession of mari-
juana under 20 grams. The war-
rant was issued on July 19, 2006,
and stems from her arrest in 2005.

Palacios is currently out on
$1,000 bond. He was arrested on
a charge of possession of cocaine
in April of this year.

Mitchell was arrested on April
13 of this year and charged with
possession of cocaine. She was
free on a $1,000 bond.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
publicc officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying' ut their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your edi-

Thank you
The membership of the Com-
munity Collaborative Council once
again united and collected a lot of
back to school supplies.
I took advantage of the sales
locally and spent your monetary
donations and added those items to
the display at the meeting. After the
CCC we loaded Reba Folsom's SUV
to the brim with all the supplies and
sent her on her way with another
$500 in gift cards. Reba will pur-
chase the additional supplies need-
ed and hopefully have funds left to
purchase socks, underwear and
jeans for some of the children. On
behalf of the foster and needy chil-
dren in Okeechobee, a big thankyou!
Remember, if you know of a

Sebring to host FHREDI, tourism group's meeting


DEC fundraiser
Tim Mahoney, a Democratic candidate for Congress in
District 16, watches Okeechobee City Councilman Noel
Chandler cook at the Saturday, July 29, fundraiser for the
Democratic Party held at the Square One Sporting Clay
Club on S.R. 70 in Lake Placid. Forty-four shooters took
part in the 100-round shoot. Other candidates attending
the event were; Emmie Ross, an Independent candidate
who is also seeking the District 16 seat; and Zane
Thomas, who is seeking election as a state representa-
tive for District 77. The fundraising event was organized
by Democratic executive committees (DEC) from High-
lands, Glades and Okeechobee counties. Anyone inter-
ested in becoming involved in the Democratic Party and
getting voters to take part in this year's elections should
call: Ellen Geake, Glades County DEC chair (863) 983-
2922; Pat Brennan Okeechobee County DEC chair at
(863) 447-0737; and Pat Hogan, Highlands County DEC
chair at (863) 385-8601.


Florida's Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative, Inc.
and Florida's Freshwater Frontier,
Inc., the region's tourism develop-
ment arm, will be hosting their
annual meeting and luncheon
Monday, Aug. 21, at the Sebring
Civic Center in Sebring.
The two organizations serve the
region consisting of the six counties
of DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Hendry,
Highlands and Okeechobee and
the four communities of Belle
Glade, Immokalee, Pahokee and
South Bay that has been designated
by Governor Jeb Bush as the South
Central Florida Rural Area of Critical
Economic Concern (RACEC).
John A. Adams, Jr., president
and CEO of Enterprise Florida, Inc.
(EFI) since Novembbr 2005, will be
the keynote speaker for the annual
event. His career in business, bank-
ing and economic development
has been one with a focus on strate-
gic planning and regional market-
ing as well as workforce training,
legislative advocacy and site selec-
tion inventory initiatives.
He is past executive director and
CEO of the Laredo Development
Foundation in Texas and currently
chairs the U.S. Department of Com-
merce's Industry Trade Advisory
Council for trade policy review.
EFI, a public-private partnership
devoted to Florida's statewide eco-
nomic development, is leading
"The Roadmap to Florida's Future"
strategic plan to diversify Florida's


economy. According to EFI's South
Central RACEC Progress Report
newsletter, the objectives are "... to
target the industries of the future,
find a regional catalytic site,
improve the site to meet industry or
target company needs, and go-to-
market with the site as a credible
economic asset."
Adams will be addressing the
issues to be discussed at the next
South Central RACEC strategic
planning meeting to be held Sept.
13 at the Dallas B. Townsend Agri-
culture Center (Hendry County Ag
Center) in LaBelle.
The outcome of the five-year
plan is an economic ripple or clus-
ter effect throughout much of the
RACEC in terms of value jobs and
capital investment. Local govern-
ment and business leaders
throughout the region are partici-
pating in the process and John
Adams will be encouraging his
audience at the Aug. 21 annual
meeting and luncheon for Florida's
Heartland REDI, Inc. and Florida's
Freshwater Frontier, Inc. to contin-
ue that involvement so crucial to
the success of "The Roadmap to
Florida's Future".
Florida's Heartland REDI, Inc.
and Florida's Freshwater Frontier,
Inc. will also be highlighting their
accomplishments over the past
year and giving special recognition
to regional partners and partici-
pants for their continued support.
In addition, the Regional Mobility
Study kickoff will take place at this


meeting.
The.primary purpose of Flori-
da's Heartland REDI, Inc. is to form
alliances with the Governor's Office
of Trade Tourism and Economic
Development (OTTED), Enterprise
Florida, Inc., Regional Planning
Councils, Water Management Dis-
tricts and Workforce Development
Boards to achieve a diverse, healthy


and sustainable economy of the cit-
izens of its region through econom-
ic development.
Florida's Freshwater Frontier
provides tourism marketing and
media development services to its
partners to promote tourism for the
region as a whole.
