Local man sentenced to life


55-year-old man
was convicted
of molesting girls

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Robert Allen Milton was con-
victed last month of sexually
molesting two young girls and at
his sentencing Monday he said
nothing and offered no apology
to the % victims.


Allen, 55, was convicted in
July of two counts of capital sex-
ual battery, one count of
attempted capital sexual battery,
and three other sexual batllery
charges.
Monday, he was sentenced to
two life sentences plus 30 years ,
He will never get out of jail. ..
One of the girls was 10 Q\ heri,.
the abuse started, while the
other was 11.
"The victims are very pleased
with the end results," said Assis-
tant State Attorner Carlos ellsls.


'Evette': The answer to high gas prices


VA 4. o

Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda
Tom and Yvette Sines pose beside their one-of-a-kind electric vehicle (EV), Evette, that
they are hoping to be able to mass produce. The car can operate on 24, 12-volt batteries.

EV operates on $2 battery charge


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
As gasoline prices continue
to rise, alternate fuel sources are
looking more attractive and
Four Seasons resident Tom
Sines believes he has the
answer.
He has produced a one-of-a-
kind electric \ chicle (E'i that he
has named E'ette, using a play
on words with his wife's name,
Yvette, and the acronym EV.
"It puts the excitement back
in driving," Mrs. Sines said of the
vehicle named for her.
The three-wheeled vehicle
has a fiberglass body. It is street
legal, registered in Okeechobee
and bears a motorcycle tag.
There is no steering wheel. The
EV is steered by a joystick like
the.ones in video games. Mov-
ing the joystick to the right
moves the car to the right and
moving it to the left moves the
car to the left.
The car is very maneuver-
able. It has a zero turn radius
and can spin in a 360-degree cir-
cle. The front wheel is free-
wheeling and does not steer the
car. There are dual brakes with a
brake pedal for each of the rear
wheels.
The two doors of this low,
sleek, car do not open outward
as most car doors. Instead, they
swing upward at a about a 45


OF.


This electric car, designed by Okeechobee resident Tom
Sines, could be the answer to high gasoline prices. Mr.
Sines claims the car can travel at 60 miles per hour and
will run for 200 miles on a $2 battery charge.


degree angle to grant access to
the two bucket seats.
The joystick is located
between the bucket seats.
Instead of a gas gauge, there
is a meter that tells how much
charge is left in the batteries.
There are no fluids to check.
Mr. Stines claims the car can
get up to 60 mph and can be
driven for 200 miles on a $2
charge. He has been working on
this car for over two decades
and it has gone through five or
six upgrades.
He claims an electric car will
last 20 or 30 years with no main-
tenance.
More than 24, 12-volt batter-
ies are hooked together in series
and supply the power.


Mrs. Sines claims that EVs
pay for themselves in savings on
maintenance and gasoline.
The batteries are about the
size of a large car battery, and
will last three to five years. The
batteries are orbital deep cycle
batteries and produce the same
amount of amperage as a car
battery but last longer.
"We have taken it as far as
we can go," she said.
They are hoping for some
type of grant or an investor or
manufacturer in order to mass-
produce the car.
Mr. Sines predicts that if the
car were mass-produced, it
could sell for $25,000 or less -

One of the Milton
victims was in court Monday
when Allen was sentenced.
"He didn't say any thing He


didn't offer any apologies," said
Mr. Wells. "I'm sure he's embar-
rassed enough as it is."
He went on to say that the

Milton was arrested on Sept.
12, 2005, by Detective Ted Van
Deman of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)
after the witnesses had come
forward and told him of the
abuse.


In his arrest reports, Detective
Van Deman indicated that Allen
was drinking heavily at the time
of the molestation.
"At the. time I was drunk,"
indicated the detective's report
of what Allen told him. "I'll be
honest with you; that is not an

of problems and I was staying
drunk most of the time."

Pipeline

Continued From Page 1
Alaska pipeline for shipment 800
miles south to Valdez, where it's
shipped to the Lower 48 aboard
tankers.
BP officials said the line where
the leak was found was last
checked in 1992, using a "pig," a
device sent down the tubes to
clean and assess pipeline integri-
ty.
BP had not done a routine
maintenance "pigging" on its
transit lines. They didn't think it
was necessary because those
lines carry clean crude from
which water was removed.
Steve Marshall, president of BP
Alaska, said the company
believed ultrasonic testing of
pipeline wall thickness was an
acceptable substitute on those
lines.
In hindsight, he said, that has
proven not to be sufficient.
"Clearly, we are already in the
process of adjusting considerably
our corrosion program," Marshall
said, adding that the company
will significantly increase its main-
tenance and surveillance of the
transit lines both now and when
they are replaced. The company
is spending $72 million this year
to inhibit corrosion, up from $60
million last-year.
The aging pipeline system on
the North Slope has been fraught
with problems lately. BP, which
posted a net profit of $7.3 billion
for, the three months ending June
30, operates the. Prudhoe Bay
-field.
In March, BP was blamed for
the rupture of a pipeline at the
same field, leading to an exten-
sion of a criminal investigation
into the company's management
of its Alaskan operations.
Steve Marshall, president of BP
Exploration Alaska Inc., said tests

Friday indicated that there were
16 anomalies in 12 areas in an oil
transit line on the eastern side of
Prudhoe Bay. Tests found losses
in wall thickness of between 70
and 81 percent. Repair or replace-
ment is required if there is more
than an 80 percent loss.
BP also said Sunday that work-
ers found a small spill of about 4
to 5 barrels, which has been con-
tained and is being cleaned up.
The news sent the price of
light, sweet crude oil up 2.22, or 3
percent, to settle at $76.98 a bar-
rel Monday on the New York Mer-
cantile Exchange, after peaking at
$77.30 earlier in the day
The average U.S. retail price of
a gallon of unleaded, regular
gasoline was $3.036 on Monday
- near its all-time high of $3.057,
reached Sept. 5 after Hurricane
Katrina hit the Gulf Coast.
Gasoline futures also rose,
indicating that the market expects
prices at the pump to increase
more.
Because of the disruption of
supplies, the Energy Department
is prepared to provide oil from the
government's emergency sup-
plies if a refinery requests it.
Spokesman Craig Stevens said the
department will be in contact
with BP and West Coast refiners
later Monday to assess the situa-
tion.
California gets about 20 per-,
cent of its oil from Alaska, with
,the remainder coming from in
state and forjgn sources.,
The reserve has about 700 mil-
lion barrels in storage on the Gulf
Coast to be used in case of a seri-
ous supply disruption. The Energy
Department in the past has lent
SPR oil to refineries when there
were disruptions because of
pipeline or other problems.

"If there is a request for oil
we'll certainly take a serious look
at that," he said.
Bill Hedges, BP's technical
expert on corrosion, said the
Prudhoe Bay pipelines were ini-
tially designed to last 25 years, but
have now lasted 29 years, with
many of the lines in "excellent
condition."
BP's anticorrosion program is
intended prolong the life of the oil
field another 50 years so that the
infrastructure can' be used to
bring natural gas to U.S. markets.
The company's reliance on ultra-
sonic technology will have to be
re-evaluated, he said.
"My assumption is that we did-
n't do it in the right spots," he
said.
BP, along with oil giants Cono-
coPhillips and Exxon Mobil Corp.,
are in negotiations with the state
to build a $25 billion natural gas
pipeline to Canada to ship the 35
trillion cubic feet of known natu-
ral gas reserves on the North
Slope.
The troubles at the Alaskan oil
field add to other problems for BP
in the United States, where the
company is the largest oil produc-
er, following an explosion at its
Texas City refinery that killed 15
workers in March 2005 and a trad-
ing scandal.

would then be paid over a 24-
month period. The finance team
will be presenting an. alternate
plan of 10 percent down, 10 per-
cent after one year and then 20
percent a year over the next five
years.
The finance tamwill present
two expansion plans. Plan A calls
for an expansion of 500,000 gal-
lons a day (MGD) at a net cost of
approximately $8 million. Plan,B


The shutdown comes six
months after the North Slope's
biggest ever oil spill was discov-
ered on a Prudhoe Bay transit
line. BP installed a bypass on that
line in April with plans to replace
the pipe. Only one of BP's three
transit lines is now operating.
BP puts millions of gallons of
corrosion inhibitor into the Prud-
hoe Bay lines each year. It also
examines pipes by taking X-rays
and ultrasound images.
BP has a 26 percent stake in
the Prudhoe Bay field, meaning
its own production would be cut
by 100,000 barrels a day, or
around 2.5 percent of the compa-
ny's worldwide production, said
spokesman David Nicholas. He
declined to provide any forecast
on the impact of the shutdown on
'earnings.
U.S. shares of BP PLC fell
$1.19, or 1.6 percent, to $71.35 in
morning trading on the New York
Stock Exchange. Shares of BP
Prudhoe Bay Royalty Trust, which
derives revenue from royalties of
BP's Prudhoe Bay oil, fell $9.12, or
10.4 percent, to $78.77 on the
NYSE.

STRAY CATS: Our neighbors have quite a few cats, we also have
feral cats running around that were left from the hurricane where peo-
ples' houses were destroyed and they left their animals. So, they are
now having wild kittens. Well, the cats stay in our yard more than their
own. They enjoy staling the birds and squirrels. Our flower beds are
great bathrooms for them. It is quite disturbing. Is there anything we
can do about the cats running wild in the neighborhood? If we had.
wanted cats, we would have our own. (Editor's Note: Yes, you can call
the Okeechobee County Animal Shelter at (863) 357-3225. They will
trap the animals and take them to the shelter.)
