Shell pit



issue still



not resolved


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Will the shell rock trucks
roll on S.W. 67th Drive or not?
There is still no decision on
the Daniel shell pit case that
has been ongoing since last
November. Unanswered
questions include whether or
not Oscar Daniel can use S.\v
67th Drive to haul shell rock
from his property and if so,


Daniel's property.
At their meeting on Thurs-
day, Aug. 24, the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners spent considerable
time discussing the issue and
listening to lawyers represent-
ing both sides. However, they
declined to take any action.
County attorney John Cas-
sels said he had been working

Daniel's attorney, to try to

John Anthony Decerio, 28,
S.E. 28th St., Okeechobee, was
charged with the purchase of
cocaine, possession of cocaine
and tampering with evidence.
His bond was set at $15,000.
Laura Anne Evans, 41, S.E.
37th, Ave., Okeechobee was
charged with the misdemeanors
*ofpossession of marijuana under
20 grams and possession of drug
paraphernalia. Her bond was set,
at $1,000.
William Reginald Alexan-
der, 41, N.E. 28th Ave., Okee-
chobee, was changed with the
purchase of cocaine and posses-
sion of cocaine. His bond was set
at $10,000.
Lt. Markham said Williams
and Decerio were charged with
tampering because they swal-
lowed the cocaine,.thus destroy-
ing the evidence. However, since
the alleged transactions were
video taped the lack of evidence
won't affect the case.
According to Lt. Markham,
Williams traded an X-Box 360

He explained that progress
that had been made toward miti-
gating the effects of hauling shell
rock on S.W. 67th Drive.
"I think we are making for-
ward progress," Mr. Cassels.
"Thisis a complex process."
He said the iss] e'of Mr. Dan.iel'
paying .10-cents a ton to haul
shell over S.W. ,67th Drive had
been nailed down, as was Mr.
Daniels' prepayment of
$100,000.
Mr. Cassels said that everyone
needs to pay their share and Mr.
Daniel conceptually acknowl-
edged he should pay some type
of fee.
One of the unsettled issues he
mentioned was the question of
whether or not Mr. Daniel
should continue paying the .10-
cents a ton after a suggested
bypass road is built.
A bypass road from S.R. 70 to
S.R. 78 has been suggested. The
route it would take through Mr.
Daniel property is still undecid-
ed. It was originally suggested
that the right-of-way follow the
section line that is Mr. Daniel's
property line. However, accord-
ing to Mr. Cassels, Mr. Daniel
wants land on both sides of the
proposed road.

cost will have to be made up by
donations. . :
At first, the association
claimed that $1.2 million in
improvements would have to be
made to the facility in order to
accommodate a fair. These
improvements would include
filling in the entrance circle and
installing electrical and water
connections so the area could be
used as a midway/carnival.
However; at Thursday's meet-
ing the association reduced the
estimated cost to $1782,000 due
to donated fill material, hauling
and compacting
Association treasurer Terry
Burroughs stated that this was a
high-end estimate.
Association president Linda
Syfrett stated that some or all of
the engineering costs might be
donated. She said that after the
engineering is done the estimat-
ed cost could go down.

Following his arrest, Williams
reportedly told investigators that
the video game system belonged
to his children, said Lt. Markham.
The OCSO lieutenant estimat-
ed the value of the system to be
around $300.
Evans, who was a passenger
in black Mazda pickup truck driv-
en by Decerio, was not arrested
at the scene. Her arrest came
about after OCSO Detective Fred
Bradley inventoried the vehicle
for impoundment. During this
procedure, he reportedly found a
small amount of a substance that
was field tested and indicated a
positive result for the presence of
marijuana. Drug paraphernalia


Mr. Cassels said Mr. Daniel
wanted assurance that if he gave
up a right-of-way that the county
would build a road in a reason-
able length of time.
"We've made a lot of
progress," agreed Mr. Gorman.
However, he said there were
some "sticky issues."
He asked ,tIiat his client be
allowed to haul shell rock on
S.W. 67th Drive for 90 days while
talks were ongoing.
Upon the advice of Mr. Cas-.
sels, commissioners did not act,
on that request. Mr. Cassels said
he hated "band aid" approaches
and wanted to work to reach an
agreement.
"Gentleman, I don't feel com-
fortable with this," said Com-
mission Chairman John Abney.
He said the issue should have
been settled at the Nov. 22. plan-
ning board'board of adjust-
ments and appeals meeting.
After that time, he fell any dis-
agreements should have been
handled in court.
"We are trying to undermine
the board (planning
board, board of adjustments and
appeals), and I don't like it," Mr.
Abney said.
"This is an opportunity to
change the use of this road and
get. someone to pay for it," said
Commissioner Elvie Posey.
He said of all the roads that


necessary improvements must
be in place by the first of Febru-
ary in order to have a fair in
2007.
.The board also voted to
chiige the site plan for the agri-
civic center. Upon the recom-
mendation of the agri-civic cen-
ter committee, they eliminated a
proposed 150,000-square-foot
building and replaced it with six,
10,000-square-foot buildings to
be built at some time in the
future. Some of the buildings
would be climate controlled and
some would b open air.
Committee member Mark
Brandel stated that the larger
building would cost an estimat-
ed $15 million and would hot be
built soon or used often. He said
the smaller buildings would be
more affordable and used more
often. He predicted that the
county could build one a year.
The proposed buildings would
be located at the top of the
entrance circle, where he said
fair vendors could rent space in
them.
Mr. Brandel said the smaller

was also found in the truck, said
Lt. Markham.
"The vehicles were seized as
evidence," said Major Noel
Stephen of why the vehicles were
confiscated. "The owner of the
vehicles then must pay $250 to
get the vehicle back."
This money is then put into a
special account that is then
turned over to the Okeechobee
Board ol County Commissioners.
The county then puts the money
into a Law Enforcement Trust
Fund.
According to OCSO executive
secretary Juanita White, at the
end of June Ihe sheriff's office
had $13,890 to give to the county.
The funds are then used for
such things as: complex investi-


are not a collector road, this
road is impacted the most.
Wes Harvin is the attorney
representing some of the S.W.
67th Drive residents who are
opposed to shell rock being
hauled on that road. Mr. Harvin
wanted to be included in any
future discussions to mitigate
the effects of hauling shell rock
on S.W. 67th Drive.
"I'm of the opinion it cannot
be," he stated, adding that he did
not believe any type deal could
be worked out that is consistent
with the county's land develop-
ment regulations (LDRs).
He urged that, the law of
Okeechobee County be fol-
low ed. "
"My clients demand, respect-
fully, that the original opinion of
the board (planning
board/board of adjustments and
appeals) be upheld and fol-
lowed," said Mr. Harvin, refer-
ring to the original board order
in November that stated S.W.
67th Drive could not be used to
haul shell rock.
Mr. Harvin referred to a letter
he had sent to the commission-
ers explaining his position.
Mr. Gorman praised the con-
tents of the letter saying that it
was worthy to be printed in the
Florida Bar Association Journal.
However, he stated that the con-
tents of the letter did not apply to


buildings would provide some-
thing useable that would gener-
ate revenue since there are no
other such facilities in town.
He said the buildings could
be subdivided and rented out for
such things as wedding recep-
tions, craft shows, antique
shows and antique car shows.
Commissioner Gene Woods
expressed interest in the smaller
buildings but said hewould like
to see a larger building built
eventually.
"I just think a 10,000-square-
foot building is too small," said
Commissioner Elvie Posey.
When told that the proposed
buildings would be too small for
concerts, Mr. Posey asked where
they would be held. Mr. Bur-
roughs replied they would be
held in the arena.
Mr. Brandel said his commit-
tee has tried to generate revenue
and that smaller buildings are a
very, very logical first step.
The board also approved the
location for the carnival/midway
in the facility's entrance circle, as
the fair association preferred,

Taking part in Thursday's

Force, the OCSO, the Okee-

Office and the Seminole Police
Department.

the present situation and that Mr.
Harvin had misrepresented the
facts.
Mr. Harvin took issue with
that statement, and declared
that. in all his years of practicing
law he had never been accused
of misrepresenting the facts.
Mr.,, Cassels stated that. Mr.
Harvin's approach was too sim-
plistic He said Mr. Harvin did
not recognize that appropriate
mitigation' could possibly, be
taken that would allow for haul-
ing of shell rock on the road in
question.
He said that the county's
LDRs do not state that shell rock
cannot be hauled on a local
road.
Mr. Gorman mentioned the
fact that four members of the
planning board live on or adja-
cent to S.W. 67th Drive.
"My client will pay and wants
equal rights," he asserted.
After hearing all the argu-
ments, commissioners declined
to take any action.
"Come back again when you
have something," stated corn
missioner Posey.
Later Mr.; Cassels said' he
would continue, to try to work to
reach an agreement.,

rather than in the 8.2-acre area
west of the circle. The estimated
cost of preparing the alternative
location is $660,312. But it was
determined to be too far from
the parking area.
Mrs. Syfrett stated that putting
the fairway in the circle would
improve security according to
Captain Bud Slay of the Okee-
chobee County Sheriff's Office,
who is a member of the associa-
tion. She said that future plans
call for the carnival to be moved
to the western site when the fair
gets bigger.
"Your potential for a fair is
unbelievable," said Buck Chris-
tensen, formerly with the South
Florida Fair.
He claimed the fair would be
a tremendous economic genera-
tor with unbelievable potential.
Mr. Posey suggested working
with the fair association, even
though the county may not be
able to afford everything right
away.
Commissioner Ray Domer
cast the lone dissenting vote to
revise the site plan.

Letter to the Editor


Support
Amendment 4
Nine years ago, Florida won a
groundbreaking lawsuit with the
tobacco industry resulting in a
$13 billion settlement. A portion
of the funds helped launch a pro-
gram designed to educate youth
about the dangers of tobacco
use. The program resulted in


dramatic decreases in teen
smoking rates in Florida, and
became a model for other states.
However, since 2002 the
Florida Legislature has cut the
program's funding, and youth
smoking rates are no longer on a
rapid decline. Meanwhile, the
tobacco companies spend more
in Florida than any other state
pushing their deadly products -
- over a billion dollars in Florida

If Amendment 4 is passed by
Florida voters it will require the
legislature to restore funding to
our state's youth tobacco pre-
vention program. The funds
would be reinstated a year from
now on the tenth anniversary
of Florida's historic legal settle-
ment with Big Tobacco.
Support Amendment 4 and
you are helping save thousands


of Florida's kids from a prema-
ture death due to tobacco addic-
tion. Let's send a clear message
to our elected officials -- and
the tobacco companies that
Floridians will continue to lead
the way in reducing the deadly
consequences of tobacco use.

Lady Brahmans cage Tigers of Martin County .


By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
The Lady Brahmans volleyball
team stepped onto their home
court Thursday night and proved
that they could handle the best
opposition out there when they
defeated the long time power-
house team from Martin County
High School in three straight
games 25-12,27-25 and 28-26.
Okeechobee's 4-year seniors
led their team to victory with the
following statistics: Kelley Smiley-
13, 10 digs; Tierra Allen-8 kills, 10
digs; Katie Bryan-7 kills, 4 blocks
and Shaunaye Brown-30 assists, 10
service points.
This win was a milestone for
the ladles from Okeechobee. They
have lived in the shadow of the
Lady Tigers for the past 16 years.
The last time the Lady Brahmans
defeated the Lady Tigers was in
1990.
Martin County High School has
dominated girls' volleyball since
the inception of the Treasure Lake
Conference in 1990. Their overall
win record of 542 placed them first
among public schools. Their con-
ference record of 157-3 is unsur-
passed in the area. They have won
15 conference titles, 13 district
championships, been runners-up
for two state titles and captured


one state championship.
The Lady Brahmans, led by
head coach George May, have
steadily built up court savvy and
experience over the past four years.
Most of
them work
together
during
the
off-
sea-
son in Coach Mays' club. program.
They pass their knowledge and
experience on to the younger club
players, ensuring a bright new crop
of players for the Lady Brahman
team year after year.
They went into the game Thurs-
day evening with a 4-0 record
against Sebring, Glades Day, John
Carroll and Lake Worth Christian.
"We'll really know where this
program is after Thursday (Martin
County)," stated Coach May prior
to the game. "To be the best you
have to beat the best and we've
never been shy about trying to do
that. I do believe that we're as close
to breaking through as we've ever
been. I can tell that the girls feel it
too. Still, talk is cheap and it doesn't
mean anything unless we take care
of business on the court."
Well, the Lady Brahmans took
care of business beating Martin
County in three straight games

Relfections from the Pulpit


By Rev. Jim Hudsonri
Pastor, His House Fellowship
Church of the Nazarene,
There are days when it seems
that life is unfair, inconsistent and
very unpredictable at best! No mat-
ter which way you turn, no matter
how old or young you are, life just
keeps coming up a BIG FAT ZERO.
Life is full of emptiness; it is hollow,
without purpose and satisfaction.,
In a distant land many years ago
lived a very wise man. He has been
called the richest and wisest man
that has ever lived. A very powerful
man with many possessions, hav-
ing tasted many pleasures and yet
he said that. . All is vanity." His
name was Solomon, King of Israel.
According to the Book of Eccle-
siastes, the problem with Solomon
is that he could not find happiness
and satisfaction apart from God. He.
sought satisfaction in science with
no answers. He sought in vain for
satisfaction in philosophy. He
sought pleasure in drinking, in
building great buildings, in posses-
sions, in wealth and in music but
found all these were empty without
satisfaction.
Solomon tells us, "So I hated
life, for the work,which has been
done under the sun was grievous to
me; because everything is futility
and striving after wind, thus I hated
all tlte fruit of my labor for which I'
have labored under the sun, for I
must leave it to the man who will
come after me." (Ecclesiastes 2:17
& 18) Solomon hated all stages of
his life, nothing was worth pursu-
ing, no period was worth the re-liv-
ing. He hated all his labor for it had
not been the answer for which he
had planned. He did not know if his
son would be a wise man or a fool
and yet he knew that he would
have control over all the fruits of his
labor. This he said is vanity, A BIG
FAT ZERO. In later verses he states
that the task o' life is painful and
grievous and that even at night his
mind does not rest.This he said is
vanity, A BIG FAT ZERO. This seems
that Solomon is talking more about
our lives in 2006 than his own
recorded life so many years ago.
Just a reminder that in chapter one,

verse nine, Solomon states that
there is nothing new under the sun.
Solomon states in chapter three
that God has a natural order for
every thing, that there is an
appointed time for every thing and
a.time for every evefit under heav-
en. "Atime to give birth and a time
to die, a time to plant, and a time to
uproot what is planted, a time to
weep and a time to laugh; a time to
search and a time to give up as lost;
a time to keep, and a time to throw
away, a time to love and a time to
hate;" (3:2,4, 6, 8) He further states
that God has beautifully made
every thing and that there is an
order to what He has made. But
not so with man.
Solomon states that it would be
better for a person never to have
been born than to have seen suffer-
ing and have seen so many mis-
eries. Thus he said "Happy are the
dead for they have escaped living
this life.. ." (4:2 & 3) He feels that
even if a man is able to settle into
idleness and lives on what he takes
from others, he is tormented and
never satisfied. All this is vanity, A
BIG FAT ZERO. :
Now it seems that Solomon
changes the direction of his think-
ing. He tells us that because God is
in heaven and we are on the earth,
that rash promises and arguments
before Him are foolish in so much
that promises made to God have
serious implications. Don't make a
vow that your fleshly desire will
cause you to break. He further
states that we should cast our
bread upon the waters, for you will
find it after many days. Here is an
allusion to the sowing office which
is sown upon muddy ground or
ground covered with water and
then it is trodden under foot. It will
take root and grow and then after
many days it will bring in a great
harvest. He also tells us to give
money to the poor. It will grow and
God will cause an abundant
increase. John MacArthur states in
The MacArthur Study Bible, page
93, in his study notes, "Be generous
while there is plenty, and make
friends while time remains,
because one never knows when he
might need them to return the

favor."
Solomon believes that there are
many things over which we have
no control, which includes the
plans and the purposes of God.
Solomon felt that death is at no
great distance, and that you and I
have a very short time to do good.
He further believes that in this life
there is no change. For he states in
11:3 "...and if a tree falls, to the
south or the north, in the place
where the tree falls, there it shall lie.
" In other words, "if you die in the
love of Christ, then it is in that state
you will be found in the day of jUdg-.
ment. Clarke's Commentary by
Adam Clarke, LL.D., Volume III,
page 834
In the closing chapter of Ecclesi-
astes, chapter twelve, Solomon
says, "Remember now your Cre-
ator in the days of your youth,
before the difficult days come, and,
the years draw near when you say,
'I have no pleasure in them.'" Again
quoting from Adam Clarke,
"Remember that you are God's
property and serve Him from the
start of your youth not the end of
your years, when service is limited.
You are not your own, you have no
right to yourselves. God made you
and he made you to be happy, but
you only can be happy in Him. He
created you so He preserves you...


He feeds, clothes and upholds
you."
Solomon now looks at our sen-
ioryears when our hands, our arms
and our bodies began to tremble
and move slower. Legs become
feeble and unable to support the
weight of our bodies. He tells us
that in our old age our teeth decay
and come out, we are unable to
chew some of our food. Our eyes
grow dim so that we are unable to
see as we once did. Here Solomon
paints a different picture than we
would like to consider. Solomon
calls these senior days "difficult
days" (12:1).
In closing the Book of Ecclesi-
astes, Solomon states, "Let us hear
the conclusion of the whole mat-
ter: Fear God and keep His com-
mandments, for this is man's all.
For God will bring every work into
judgment, including every secret
thing, whether good or evil" (12:13
&14)
Solomon was a man of great
wealth and possessions, having
tasted many pleasures and yet he
said that all is vanity. All adds up to a
BIG FAT ZERO. There is no satisfac-
tion or happiness apart from God.
May we all learn from Solomon
and early seek our happiness and
satisfaction in the Lord.
