Shell pit pact reached


Issue may still
end up in court,
indicates lawyer

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The 11-month-old question
of the use of S.W. 67th Drive by
Oscar Daniel to haul shell rock
from his mine at the end of that
road has finally been resolved
- at least as far as county gov-
ernment action is concerned.
At their meeting on Thurs-
day, Sept. 14, the Okeechobee
County Board of County Com-
missioners approved conditions


by which Mr. Daniel could haul
shell rock over the road.
"I am pleased to report we
have reached an agreement,"
stated county attorney John
Cassels.
"We feel it's in the county's
best interest," added Robert
Gorman, Mr. Daniel's attorney.
Commissioners unanimous-
ly approved a written agree-
ment that had been worked out
between Mr. Cassels and Mr.
Gorman.
However, that may not be
the end of the matter.
Attorney Wes Harvin, repre-
senting some of the residents of
S.W 67th Drive, hinted that his
clients might take the matter to


court.
The agreement consisted
mostly of conditions that had
been previously discussed.
Under the terms of the agree-
ment, Mr. Daniel will be
required to contribute a road
maintenance fee of .10 cents
per ton to be used for the main-
tenance of S.W. 67th Drive. He is
also being required to prepay
$100,000 of the fee before min-
ing operations begin.
Hours of operation would be
limited to between 8 a.m. and 6
p.m, Monday through Friday,
with a limit of 2,000 tons a day
being hauled over the road.
However, in consideration of
the delay in beginning mining


South Elementary: Kicks off fundraiser


Okeehobee6'News/Chauna Agullar
South Elementary school students gathered to kick off their PTO fundraiser selling hol-
iday items, cookie mix, and magazines. They will also be utilizing an Internet system
where the students can register online and email their friends and family across the
country as well as selling out of a magazine. Funds raised will go towards safety con-
cerns by purchasing walkie-talkies, beautification, and accelerated reader incentives.
Order forms and money are due on Wednesday, Sept. 27 and delivery is estimated for
early November. Students selling 12 items or more will attend a DJ party during school
after the sales are final.


operations, for the first six
months of mine operation Mr.
Daniel would be able haul an
average of 3,000 tons a day.
In addition, Mr. Daniel is
required to grant the county a
right-of-way through his proper-
ty for a bypass road connecting
S.R. 70 W.and S.R. 78.
Planning official Bill Royce
stated that he had reviewed the
agreement and that it was con-
sistent with the county's land
development regulations.
Mr. Cassels noted that there
had been a lot of talk about
bypass roads between the
county's major highways. He
noted that now the county
would have to take the issue


seriously. The agreement states
that the county must acquire the
additional rights-of-way neces-
sary for the bypass road within
seven years. If the county has
not acquired the additional
rights-of-way in that length of
time, Mr. Daniel would get his
donated right-of-way back.
"This right-of-way is a
bonus," said Commissioner Ray
Domer.
In his rebuttal, Mr. Harvin
again took issue with the fact
that Mr. Gorman had accused
him of misrepresenting the facts
at the last commissioner's
meeting.

The Okeechobee News, Friday, September1 5, 2006


Local ma

An Okeechobee man has
beenbooked into the Okee-
chobee County Jail under a
bond of $80,000 for his alleged
connection in the thefts of an
outboard motor and an air
compressor.
Scott Michael Gabor, 38, S.E.
Eighth Ave., was arrested Sept.
13 and charged with two
counts of grand theft, one
o'4punt.of burglary of a dwelling
and one count of dealing in
stolen property.
A report by Deputy Rusty
Hartsfield of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO)


R charged

states that Gabor, c acted a
local businessman about the
purchase of a 25 hp Evinrude
outboard motor. However,
continued the report, the busi-
nessman recognized the motor
as one that belonged to a friend
of his.
The businessman then went
to his friend's home. When told
about the motor, the friend
went to look at his boat and
found the motor missing. They
then contacted the sheriff's
office and filed a complaint.
Deputy Hartsfield's report
states the motor had a value of


with theft of motor


$500.
Once the complaint was
filed, area law enforcement
began to look for a van that
was supposedly being driven
by Gabor.
The OCSO was later contact-
ed by the Okeechobee City
Police Department and told
that they had found the van on
S.E. Eighth Ave. OCSO
deputies, as well as Detective
Sergeant T.J. Brock responded
to the scene.
Deputy Hartsfield's report
states that an outboard motor
resembling the one that was


reported stolen could be seen
in the back of the van.
As he was responding to the
location where the van was
found, he was also notified that
a mobile home had been bur-
glarized and that an air com-
pressor had allegedly been
taken. A van matching the
description of the one being
driven by Gabor had been seen
at the home, stated the
deputy's report.
Deputy Hartsfield later
learned that the compressor
had been pawned at a local
pawn shop.

Sept. 7 and was released, indi-
cate Martin County Jail records.
According to records from the
Martin County Sheriff's Office
I. MCSO), deputies were called to
saidd bar, which is located in
St..Lucie Waterway and to
we est of the St. Lucie Inlet, in
Sgard to a fight around 4:30
pm on Sunday, Aug. 27
Upon his arrival at the scene,
MCSO Detective Todd
Schimelfanick stated in his
report that witnesses told him
that numerous fights had erupt-
ed "and that Mr. McCarthy had


been punched in the head.
In the detective's report, he
states that the punch caused the
victim to be unresponsive and
fall into the water, face down.
His report states that the water
was about 2-feet deep.
Detective Schimelfanick went
on to state that a bystander who
allegedly saw the initial punch
then went to the aid of the vic-
tim. As the bystander was "aid-
ing the victim, a second punch
was delivered to the head area of
the victim, which was delivered
in back of the bystander," wrote
the detective.
Mr. McCarthy was taken to
Martin Memorial Hospital South.
The man died the next after-
noon.


Detective Schimelfanick indi-
cated in a second report that an
autopsy indicated that Mr.
McCarthy's death was caused by
severe traumatic injury and was
ruled as a homicide.
Reports from other MCSO
personnel at the fight scene indi-
cate that because of witness
statements, Godwin became a
"person of interest." These
reports go on to indicate that
witnesses told MCSO investiga-
tors that Godwin was the person
who struck Mr. McCarthy.
One witness identified God-
win after being shown his pho-
tograph, as shown on the Driver
and Vehicle Information Data-
base (DAVID).
A report by MCSO Deputy


Donald Plant states that there
were over 100 people at the
scene and, according to witness
statements, "... the fight looked
more like a riot."
Mr. McCarthy was placed into
a MCSO boat operated by
Deputy Richard Arango. Deputy
Arango stated in his report that
after the teen was placed aboard
his boat two women and one
man also boarded the vessel and
began performing cardiopul-
monary resuscitation (CPR) on
Mr. McCarthy.
The deputy went to Sandspirit
Park where emergency person-
nel from Martin County Fire/Res-
cue took over and continued to
perform CPR on Mr. McCarthy.

County will not support this stip-

Commissioners had voted at
a previous meeting that S.W.
67th Drive functions as a collec-
tor road, a move Mr. Harvin con-
tended was illegal.
"It ain't a collector road," he
argued. "If you have a law on the


books, you have to follow that
law."
Mr. Royce stated that a func-
tional classification is based on
the use of the road.
"Nothing says you can't drive
dump trucks on a residential
road," asserted Mr. Cassels.

IRCC offers music therapy program


FORT PIERCE Indian River
Community College (IRCC) is the'
first community college in the
nation to offer a "2 + 2" program
leading to a bachelor's degree in
music therapy.
Offered in partnership with
Florida State University (FSU), the
highly-innovative program will
prepare students to use music as
therapeutic treatment for a wide
range of disabilities and impair-
ments. IRCC musical therapy stu-
dents will gain real-world experi-
ence through paid internships at
Lawnwood Regional Medical Cen-
ter in Fort Pierce.
"IRCC has a long history of
delivering successful educational
programs in health care and
music; the new Music Therapy
program combines those fields in
a unique-way," said Dr. Henri Sue
Bynum, IRCC vice president of
Academic Affairs. "As we develop
our region into a research hub
focusing on life science and medi-
cine, this new program will pro-
vide certified music therapists to
support a variety of innovative
approaches to health care-- using
music as medicine."
A pioneering researcher in the
field of medically applied music for
newborns, Dr. Jayne Standley, the
architect of FSU's music therapy
outreach program has been
involved in the development of the
program at IRCC. The new IRCC
Music Therapy program grew out
of the recently announced IRCC
partnership with the FSU College
of Medicine, which will locate a
branch of its Medical School at the
IRCC main Campus.


-Submitted to Okeechobee News
Indian River Community College is the first community col-
lege in the nation to offer a "2 + 2" program leading to a
bachelor's degree in music therapy, which prepares students
to use music as therapeutic treatment for a wide range of dis-
abilities and impairments. Those pictured (left to right) are
Dr. John Southall, coordinator of the IRCC Music Therapy
Program; IRCC students, Bryon Fortun of St. Lucie County;
Ja'Mario Stewart of Indian River County, Devin Molina
(standing) of Okeechobee County; and, Richard Shaw of
Martin County.


"Music therapy is a highly effec-
tive behavioral science that facili-
tates medical, educational, reha-
bilitative, and counseling goals.
Jobs for degree, Board Certified
Music Therapists are expanding
rapidly in the fields of medical and
hospice services," said Dr. Stand-
ley. "The Florida State University
Music Therapy Department in the
College of Music is excited about
developing the new Baccalaureate
partnership with I.R.C.C."


According to Dr. Standley it's
common for musical therapists to
work with pre- and post-operative
patients, anxious children facing
medical procedures, Alzheimer's
and psychiatric patients. It has also
shown promising results in reduc-
ing pain, nausea and anxiety in
cancer patients.
Research from the American
Music Therapy Association "sup-
ports the effectiveness of music
therapy in facilitating movement


and overall physical rehabilitation,
motivating people to cope with
treatment, providing emotional
support for clients and their fami-
lies and providing an outlet for
expression of feelings."
After assessing the strengths
and needs of each patient, the
music therapist provides the indi-
cated treatment, including singing,
moving to, and listening to music.
As a result, Dr. John Southall,
Coordinator of the IRCC Music
Therapy program, expects stu-
dents who are interested in major-
ing in rfiusic to be attracted to the
program. He will work closely
with students as they learn to com-
bine musical performance with
applications of psychology, physi-
ohl, and behavioral sciences to
join other health professionals in
providing patient care.
Students will complete aca-
demic coursework, instrumental
and choral music courses, three
music therapy courses and hospi-
tal practicums during their first two
years of study at IRCC. During their
junior and senior years at FSU they
will further develop knowledge of
music therapy, study psychology
and participate in internships.
Students may apply to the pro-
gram now .and can begin taking
academic and music courses in
the Spring Semester.
At the completion of the aca-
demic training and internship, stu-
dents will be eligible for the certifi-
cation exam administered by the
Certification Board of Music Thera-
pists, Inc.
For information, contact Dr.
John Southall at (772) 462-7810.

Letter to the Editor


Encourage
recycling
I read with interest and enthusi-
asm the article in the paper several
weeks ago that encouraged school
children in Florida to recycle. How-
ever, I am disappointed that the
effort to recycle in Okeechobee is
not fully supported.
I have called several times to try
to get a recycle bin only to be told
that the county doesn't have curb-
side recycling. Then I called to see if
I could bring my recycled goods to
the public drop-off site on Satur-


day. Disappointingly, the answer
again was no.
It is very difficult for the working
person in Okeechobee to get to the
public drop-off sites during the
week. Many people work out of
town. Are they to take their recycled
materials out of town with them?
Now that we will have a new
Board of County Commissioners I
hope someone will try to bring
Okeechobee into alignment with
the many other counties that
actively encourage recycling by
providing curbside recycling serv-
ices to all of its citizens.
Laurie Adams

Sv Wildlife laws


-- have new teeth


I Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
I1 "servation Commissioners (FWC)
approved a measure Wednesday
to join 23 other states in a pact to
-" suspend hunting and fishing
license privileges for anyone com-
S mitting a conservation law viola-
tion that costs him his license in
oviders" any other participating state.
1 If no one requests a hearing
ov ders during the next 21 days, the new
rule will take effect 20 days after
that deadline.
"" The rule honors license suspen-
sions for like-violations from other
^ participating states. In cases such
as trespassing, however, in which
other states may suspend hunting
licenses, Florida will not suspend
S. the violator's license privileges in
.. this state because laws do not pro-
... vide for license suspension for the
S- same violation here.
. FWC Law Enforcement Capt.
. .-. Curtis Brown said the rule will
S ,4 4 make FWC officers more efficient
S. by allowing more time for enforce-
-.. ment duties rather than processing
procedures.
S. "It will make violators more
S. accountable for their illegal activi-


ties," said Brown. "Wildlife law-
breakers no longer will be able to
escape consequences just by
crossing a state line."
Other participating states include
Arizona, California, Colorado, Geor-
gia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas,
Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota,
Missouri, Tennessee, Montana
Nevada, New Mexico, New York
North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakob
ta, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
There's more bad news for
repeat violators. Jail time and
mandatory fines grow stiffer with
each violation under new
enhanced penalty laws already in
effect in Florida.
For instance, violation that car-
ries a nominal fine for a first offense
has not changed, but the same vio-
lation will carry a minimum
mandatory fine of $250 for a sec-
ond offense within three years and
a minimum mandatory fine of
$500 and a one-year suspension of
all recreational licenses for a third
offense within five years. ...

Clewiston triple murder questions still unanswered


Suspect pleads
'not guilty'

By Ideybis Gonzalez
and Jose Zaragoza
Special to Okeechobee News
A month after a triple murder
shocked the community, few
answers are available and many
questions still linger in the case.
Three members of the
Whitaker family were found
dead last month in their Clewis-
ton home in what officials say
appears to be a homicide moti-
vated by robbery, Only a single
person remains who may be
able to provide answers Ruby
Yolande Parker.
Parker, 31, surprised the


Whitaker family this week by
submitting a plea of "not guilty,"
during her arraignment on Mon-
day. Parker, who is still in jail
without bond, is represented by
a court-appointed public defend-
er.
Parker faces three counts of
second degree murder for her
alleged involvement in the case,
a charge that carries a maximum
punishment of life in prison.
Of the five people believed to
have been at the Whitaker home
on the night of the murders,
Parker is the only one still alive.
A second suspect, Richard Harry
Harker, 35, reportedly killed him-
self after law enforcement
authorities caught up with him
when he attempted to flee in the
Whitaker family's black pick-up


truck. According to the sheriff's
office report, Harker put a bullet
in his head when he was cor-
nered.
The Medical Examiner's
office has not yet released find-
ings on the official cause of
death for the three murder vic-
tims.
The Whitaker family has
buried their three family mem-
bers: Joey Whitaker, 52, his wife
Carolyn, 53, and her mother,
Myrtle Lee Cox, 80, who lived
with them.
The community has gathered
around the family and shown
tremendous support for them,
said Joy Cardenas, daughter and
granddaughter of the victims,
offering help both financially
and emotionally.


Harker, who family members
believe may have orchestrated
the killings, was cremated.
Harker served time in jail fora
murder in the 1990s.
Parker's involvement in the
case seems strange to the people
who know her. She reportedly
left her 8-year-old daughter with
her parents in her hometown in
Mississippi to travel to Florida
with Richard Harker.
Before her involvement with
Harker, she had almost never
been in trouble with the law, yet
she is now the principal suspect
in the state's case in the mur-
ders.
Whitaker family members
expressed shock after learning
that Parker is contesting the
three charges against her. Parker


is scheduled to appear in court
for her trial on Nov. 20.
"It's ridiculous," Ms. Carde-
nas said this week.
"Just because she's only had
a speeding ticket, she's now try-
ing to act like Snow White," she
said.
Like most residents in Clewis-
ton, Ms. Cardenas said she is still
struggling to understand what
motivated the killings, or why
the suspects chose to make her
family the victims of such a hor-
rible crime.
The cause of death was not
immediately revealed in the
weeks following the murder, and
even family members themselves
did not have a clear answer
almost a month after the crime.
The birth certificates of each


of the victims, though, cites
death by strangulation and suffo-
cation, which counters early
rumors that the victims had been
shot in their home, perhaps by
the same gun that Harker later
used to take his own life.
And even though her father
had had a falling out with Harker
last December, Ms. Cardenas did
not understand what would
have driven somebody to mur-
der her parents.
The family continues to cope
with the deaths, and thank the
community for stepping forward
to help them through it. For Ms.
Cardenas, however, the hurt has-
n't ended.
"Everyday, we handle it differ-
ently," she said. "Everyday is a
different day."


Daughtrey entrenches himself in his new position


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Special to the Okeechobee News
BELLE GLADE At the helm
of the city of Belle Glade, Newall
Daughtrey has already dealt with
the threat of a hurricane, urging
commissioners to raise water and
sewer rates and convincing'
16,000 people that he is the, right
choice for the city.
And it even isn't Mr. Daugh-
trey's first full month on the job.
If he has his way, it certainly
won't be his last.
"I don't look at it as tempo-
rary," he said last week, even
while commissioners look at
making their final selection for
city manager. "I certainly intend to
be a part of the process."
The recently named interim
city manager is getting a full view
of what it takes to be the city man-


ager in Belle Glade, where politi-
cally charged public discourse
often ends with somebody losing
their job often times the city
manager himself.
Mr. Daughtrey said his working
relationship with commissioners
has been positive.
"I get along with people who
allow me to get along with them,"
he said.
The city's new recruit is con-
vinced of the city's potential to
branch out and grab a piece of the
lucrative tourism market. He lists
as among the most valuable
assets in the city the marina and
campground, and the golf course,
as examples of how easily the city
could capture more dollars.
"Just sprucing up the marina
and doing renovations, we .could
have that place filled all year-


round," said Mr. Daughtrey. "We
have not paid attention to details.
People have gotten complacent
and used to not doing."
But in order to get there the
city must first make some truly
hard decisions. Residents here say
that their water service is poor,
that the water they drink has a
strange color, a strange odor, and
most prefer to buy drinking water
than drink straight from the tap.
As a result, raising water and
sewer rates hasn't always tradi-
tionally been at the top of com-
missioners' minds.
The result is the collection of
what could have been two or
three percent increases each year,
rather than the sizeable hit that
residents may feel if the commis-
sion decides to approve the rates..
This year, the commission is grap-


pling with raising rates by 22 per-
cent.
"When you don't do your duty,
you create a monster," Mr. Daugh-
trey said; a criticism of former pol-
icymakers. "I'm the new kid on
the block, but I've seen this
before."
It's shaped his perception of
former city hall administrations.
"There are a whole lot of
things that need to be done that
haven't been done and they
needed to be done yesterday,"
said Mr. Daughtrey, who on
Thursday was looking at another
long day after going home at 9
p.m. the previous night.
Mr. Daughtrey makes it a point
to make forward-looking deci-
sions when considering recom-
mendations to his supervisors,
the city commission board. The


idea isn't simply to keep the city in
operation, he said, but to put for-
ward those actions that will
impact the city for the long-term.
"My job as a professional man-
ager is to tell the truth," he said.
By his own account, .Mr.
Daughtrey considers the future
health of the city in the decisions
he makes, whether that will ulti-
mately benefit him, or someone
else who might take his place,
isn't his concern.


But he certaiilly doesn't hide
the fact that he wants to be Belle
Glade's top employee.
The city commission is expect-
ed to make a final selection for city
manager soon, and Mr. Daughtrey
is confident that he will be select-
ed. If he isn't, he will still be satis-
fied that he did his best to help.
"My job is to stir up, encour-
age, require everyone to do their
job," said Mr. Daughtrey. "I.love to
work, I believe in excellence."
