EMT solicitation
is telephone scam
The Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) has
, recently been notified by
area residents that a group
called Florida EMTs & Para-
medics is soliciting money
over the telephone.
This is not a local organi-
zation, and could possibly be
based in Canada.
Callers are asking for
donations supposedly to be
used for training and equip-
ment.
If contacted by the group,
do not donate money.

Fund solicitors
make false claims
Several Okeechobee busi-
nesses have recently report-
ed that they were solicited for'
contributions by a person
falsely claiming to represent
Indian River Community Col-
lege (IRCC).
"This person is apparently
using the names of Family
Center, Friends Provision
Center and IRCC to solicit
contributions. IRCC is not
affiliated in any way with
these groups and is not
involved in soliciting these
types of contributions," said
Sam Smith, provost of IRCC's
Dixon Hendry Campus.
Okeechobee residents
who are approached for con-
tributions or have questions
should contact the Dixon
Hendry Campus at (863) 824-
6000.

Hatcher found guilty


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee County jury
found Julius Hatcher, 26, guilty
of second degree murder Friday
in the June 2000 fatal shooting
of Evelyn Jean Nutter of Fort
Drum. Hatcher was also found
guilty of attempted second
degree murder in the shooting
of Ronze Cummings, and of
trespass.
The verdict came after about
four and a half hours of deliber-


action.
According
to Assistant
State Attorney
Rick Seymour,
all three
counts are
felonies. Sec-
ond degree
murder carries
a mandatory Julius
sentence of 25 Hatcher
years in
prison.
"This verdict has been a long


time coming," said Mr. Sey-
mour. We charged him with fist
degree murder and we got sec-
ond. It was a satisfactory result."
In four-day trial in the Okee-
chobee County Courthouse this
,\eek, Hatcher faced charges of
first degree murder, attempted
first degree murder and burgla-
ry in connection to the June 27,
2000 shootings in Fort Drum.
In the very earl'% morning
hours of June 27, 2000, two
men entered the Fort Drum
home of Evelyn Jean Nutter and

Ronze Cummings. Mr. Cum-
mings and Ms. Nutter were
bound with duct tape and had
plastic bags secured over their
heads before each was shot in
the head.
The alleged motive for the
shootings was that Salazar
apparently thought Ms. Nutter
had been talking to law enforce-
ment officials about his drug
business. Court records indicate
the "uniformed man" Ms. Nutter
had been seen talking to was
just an acquaintance who was a


security guard.
"You better shoot them now
or I'll drop you here on the floor.
That's the situation Julius found
himself in," said defense attor-
ney Mark Harllee, in closing
arguments on Friday.
Mr. Harllee pointed out that
both the shooter and the surviv-
ing victim tell the same story
about the events of that night.
Both say that Neil Salazar

The City Planning
Board/Board of Adjustments
and Appeals met Thursday,
Sept. 21, to discuss the addi-
tions of amendments to the
city's Land Development Reg-
ulations, including ordinance-
and special exception-use
changes,,a change in future
land use and a special excep-
tion. - -..
; The board members pon-
dered the idea of allowing spe-
cial exceptions dealing with
parking requirements on busi-
nesses who are new occu-


pants of existing buildings.
The board is revising an ordi-
nance, that will come before
the board again to be consid-
ered for recommendation.
This ordinance will include
items such as allowing
increases, decreases or defer-
ment to the number of on-site
parking spaces required in
heavy commercial or com-
mercial zoning categories by
granting a special exception

School boards may


challenge new


charter commission


Firefighters from the county and city battled smoke and heat as they fought to bring the
fire at Capital Pawn on NW Park Street under control early Friday evening.


TALLAHASSEE A state
commission established to
authorize more charter
schools held its first meeting
Friday under the shadow of a
looming legal challenge from
Florida's school boards.
The 67 local boards previ-
ously had sole authority to
grant charters for the publicly
funded schools, which can be
operated by -private individu-
als, organizations, corpora-
tions or other government
entities, although denials can


be appealed to the State Board
of Education.
Florida School Boards
Association executive director
Wayne Blanton said his organ-
ization will contest a new law
that created the Florida
Schools for Excellence Com-
mission.
"We have over 350 charter
schools right now that are
working with local school
boards and then to come in

State's citrus revenue up


LAKELAND Florida's cit-
rus farmers had more than $1
billion in sales this harvest for
the first time in six years, even
though a large chunk of their
crop was destroyed by last fall's
Hurricane Wilma, a U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture report said.
Higher prices pushed up rev-
enue 38 percent during the
2005-2006 season from the pre-
vious year, driving sales past the
$1 billion mark for the first time
since the 1999-2000 season:,
according to the report released
Thursday. The figure is what
growers received from pack-
agers and juice processors, not
retail sales.
"I think this confirms what
we said in our long-term study,
that there's still a lot of money to
be made in this industry," said
Tom Spreen, chairman of the
University of Florida's Food and
Resource Economics Depart-
ment. "Those folks who are
glooming and dooming about
the end of the citrus industry in
Florida- they're just not right."
The state's citrus growers.
produced 174.8 million boxes in


the latest year. That production
was up 3 percent from the year
before, when the citrus region
was hit by three hurricanes, but
down 40 percent from the pro-
duction level in the 2003-2004
season, according to the report..
The increase in production
was modest, but the price per
box of fruit was higher in the lat-
est year for every type of citrus
crop except white and colored
grapefruit and Honey tanger-
ines.
Florida orange growers, for
example, received an average
"on-tree" price of $5.46 per 90-
pound box in 2005-2006, a 56
percent increase from the previ-
ous season. The on-tree price
reflects what processors and
packinghouses pay growers
after deducting the costs of har-
vesting and transporting the
fruit.
Wilma swept across the
southern part of the state Oct. 24
and had a devastating affect on
the size of the harvest. On Oct.
12, the USDA forecast showed
Florida growers would produce
190 million boxes of oranges, 24


million boxes of grapefruit and
8.3 million boxes of specialty cit-
rus.
The spread of diseases such
as citrus canker and citrus
greening destroyed crops as
well, driving production num-
bers down and sending prices
higher for those whose crops
were not destroyed.
Final production came in at
147.9 inillion boxes of oranges,
down 1.3 percent from the pre-
vious season and the lowest
since 1991-1992; 19.3 million
boxes of grapefruit, up 50 per-
cent from the previous season
but still the second-lowest total
in 64 years; and 7.6 million
boxes of specialty, up 14.3 per-
cent from 2004-2005 season.
Polk County returned to the
top among Florida's citrus-pro-
ducing counties with a 2005-
2006 production of 32.5 million
boxes of oranges, grapefruit and
specialty citrus (mostly tanger-
ines), easily besting the next-
most productive counties -
Highlands at 23.8 million boxes
and DeSoto at 20.4 million
boxes.

Foley's aide holds local hours
OKEECHOBEE Ann Decker, aide to U.S. Representative Mark
Foley (R-16th District) will be in room 106 of the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Courthouse on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 10:30 a.m. until noon.
Ms. Decker will also be available by phone at (863) 763-6441.

Tax forms for ag exemptions available
OKEECHOBEE As a service to the agricultural community, the
Okeechobee County Farm Bureau has the tax exemption certificates
for certain power farm equipment purchases.
The purchaser's tax exemption certificate for electricity used
directly and exclusively in production or processing of agricultural
products on a farm are also available.
To pick up either certificate, visit the Okeechobee Farm Bureau
office at 401 N.W Fourth St, in Okeechobee.
At the costs of both equipment and electricity for farm use, these
tax exemptions represent sizable savings for the agricultural produc-
er.

Boaters asked to watch for manatees
OKEECHOBEE Several manatees have been sighted in Taylor
Creek between the Taylor Creek Bridge and the drawbridge on U.S.
441 S.E.
For this reason, boaters are asked to slow down and be careful
not to hit one of the gentle creatures.
According to Captain Barry 'Chop' Lege, from the Conservation
Center for Lake Okeechobee, Kissimmee and Indian Rivers and
Everglades Education, Inc., the animals are, probably mating and will
be even more susceptible to being struck by the propeller of an out-
board motor.


Survey deadline is Sept. 30
OKEECHOBEE The Economic Restructuring Committee of
Okeechobee Main Street has announced that the deadline for sub-
mitting a completed survey to be used to identify the needs of the
S- local business community will be Saturday, Sept. 30.
If any business has completed the survey, it should be faxed to
Sthe Main Street office at (863) 467-8488. If a business has not
d "received the survey, visit the Main Street web site at www.mainstree-

OMS to

The OMS Warrior soccer and
volleyball teams are off to a good
start this fall. The Warrior Volley-
ball team has knocked off three
straight opponents,
all in exciting
games. The Warrior
Soccer
team has
improved
their record
with a dramatic 2-2 tie in Wednes-
day's first home game against
Anderson Middle School. We look
forward to great things from both
groups, and it has been lots of fun
watching them play. Way to go,
Warriors!
The week of September 25 has
been designated "Celebrate Free-
dom Week" by the State of Florida,
intending to reinforce the principles
on which the United States was
founded: the commitment to the
rule of law, government and bal-
ances, and the ideals of liberty,
equality, and justice embodied in
the United States Constitution. As
part of the celebration, students and

DESPERATE: Clay Shaw and Mark Foley are really getting desperate
by airing these false claims against their opponents. I say we cleaned
house in the County Commission, now let's do it in Washington, D.C.

CAMPAIGNS: Why doesn't George W just stay in Washington, D.C.,
and just send the money he's costing the taxpayers by using Air Force
One to campaign for the Republicans. It would put more money into
their campaign chest.

Reflections from the Pulpit


ByStu Beebe
Director of Christian Education
First United Methodist church
I had an interesting- and
expensive- meeting with my
insurance person the other day,
and it really brought home to me
how much time and money we
spend making plans for things
that will never happen.
We have car insurance for the
accident that, if we are careful
and fortunate, will never happen.
We have house insurance for cov-
erage of a mishap which, many
times as we have found out, will
not be the particular mishap that
happens to us! When we go to
buy a car, we get insurance along


with the financing so that, in case
we are disabled, our payments
will be made for us. And of
course, we all try to have health
insurance in case we get sick-
and life insurance in case we
don't live forever (!).
I was watching on television
one of those organizations that
makes plans available to have
your ashes scattered on the
ocean. This was put forth as a
method of inexpensive burial, so
that you, or more accurately, your
survivors, will not be faced with
high expenses for your funeral.
This is not really an area where
people like to bargain-hunt. And I
have never heard a blue light spe-


cial for funerals while wandering
around my local discount store (I
don't shop, I just wander until the
money is gone).
This is really a sad state of
affairs. If we really want to make
plans to be sure that our family is
well taken care of in our
absence... that is: In addition to
making sure that the house is paid
for, the car is paid for, etc... We
need to make sure that we are
paid up with the only One who
really counts.
If we are so concerned with
the well-being of our loved ones
while they are in .this world-
what about the world to come?
In John 13:1-38 and 14:1-6,


Jesus told us that He knew what
was going to happen to Him; that
He will be departing this world.
And He knew how it will hap-
pen-and what did He do? He
started washing His disciple's
feet. And in spite of the protests of
Peter, He continued to do so. This
was the ultimate act of service. In
Jesus' day, only a slave could be
required to wash a person's feet.
In response to Peter's protest
Jesus said, "If I do not wash you,
you have no part of me." Now
there can be little doubt, that as
long as Jesus washes us of our
sins, we have the ultimate assur-
ance (insurance?) of eternal life.
Frankly that's not the picture
most of us have of today's Christ-


ian is it? A one hour service on
Sunday morning is not even close
to the service Jesus described. We
should be willing to do ANY-
THING for each other in the name
of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ.
But are we fulfilling our part of
the contract? We need to remem-
ber what this legacy Jesus has left
for us is really all about.
Jesus was addressing those
who serve each other in the man-
ner He served them, when He
said, "I go to prepare a place for
you, I will come again and receive
you to myself that where I am,
you may be also."
That's an incredible promise,


isn't it? And besides being the ulti-
mate retirement plan that is the
plan that we need to pass on to
our family and friends. That is the
promise that we need to accept
for ourselves and our loved ones
in Jesus' name.
Let's all make sure that our
future plans are paid in full for all
everyone's sake, for the sake of
our loved ones and families; our
church families; and most
assuredly to those who don't have
a church family, as we reach out
into the community.
Let us serve each others as
Jesus commanded us to do, so
we can all enjoy His promise of a
place'with Him.

Is spider rigging hurting the Big "O"?


FWC needs
public opinion

By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
would like input from area
anglers regarding the use of spi-
der rigs for speckled perch
(black crappie) fishing. They
have set up a web site contain-
ing a survey regarding Florida
fishing opinions. This survey has
questions concerning spider
rigs, reducing bag limits and
other fresh water concerns. The
site is www.MyFWC.com/Fish-
ing. Scroll down in the right-
hand column and click "Quick
Input Survey".
What FWC is referring to is
the use. of multiple fishing rods,
sometimes more than 20 per
angler, to hook schooling fish
such as speckled perch.
According to Bubba Helton,
co-owner of Garrard's Tackle
Shop, crappie fishermen are also
using a two-hook rig for catch-
ing specks known as a crappie
rig.
"They'll tie two or three of
these rigs together to catch as
many crappies as they can," stat-
ed Mr. Helton. "Others will have
40 or even 50 poles rigged up on
their pontoon boats, will catch
their limits early in the day, leave
and then return later in the day
to catch their limits again."
The daily bag limit for speck-


led perch (black crappie) is 25
fish per licensed angler per day.
"FWC should regulate crap-
pie fishermen more. They need
to put some of their trainees at
the ramps to check these boats
out," said Mr. Helton. "They
should also do away with the
cane pole rule and make every-
one pay for a license. If they can
afford to purchase an expensive
boat and motor, they can pay for
a fishing license."
Charlie Hays, founder of the
highly successful Big "0" Teen
Anglers, Inc. bass fishing club
agrees with Mr. Helton.
"These crappie fishermen go
out and catch their limit, bring
them in, clean them and then go
out again," stated Mrs. Hays. "I
don't think it is right. I've even
heard them brag about the
amount of fish they've caught.
We need to do something to
stop this. They keep hammering
and hammering at the livelihood
of a lot of people around the
lake, literally stealing these fish
and taking them out of state,"
explained Mrs. Hays.
The possession limit is two
days' bag limit. It is illegal to
transport or possess more than
two days' bag limit of fish per
licensed angler without a com-
mercial license. The exceptions
to this rule are fish legally
acquired from fish farmers for
use in aquaria, for brood stock,
pond stocking or properly
marked for market. Fish may not
be filleted nor their head or tail
removed until the angler is fin-


ished fishing for the day to allow
confirmation of measurements.
George Parker, national crap-
pie tournament winner and a 20-
year angler on Lake Okee-
chobee, suggests that FWC step
up fish checks during the winter
season and have officers actually
count the amount of fish being
taken out of the lake at one time.
Mr. Parker also expressed his
concern about the condition of
the lake.
"I'm a good fisherman and
can usually catch fish when no
one else can. Normally, I will cull
40-50 fish and keep my limit at
Nubbin Slough. This weekend I
caught two. I have never done
that poorly. I went back out the
following day and went south
around the airport and in a little
over two hours caught two gar
and a one-pound bass. That is
the poorest I've ever done in 20
years of fishing on Lake Okee-
chobee."
Mr. Parker also stated that an
area from the J & S Lock to the
Henry Creek Lock was absolute-
ly silent.
"There were no birds, no fish
flipping and no bugs. This fish-
ery is definitely hurting. The only
way to control the amount of
crappies being taken from this
lake is to, step up fish checks,
especially during the winter
months and have FWC officers
actually stop and count the
amount of fish on each boat.
Many of these fishermen are tak-
ing young fish that have not even
had time to spawn yet. The lake


Brahman bowlers split match with Titans


The Brahman bowling team
split their match with the Treasure
Coast High School Titans Thurs-
day afternoon. The Brahman
boys' team, now at 3-3, took all
three games by a total of 412 pins.
They were led by Sonny Lowe's
224 and 221 high games. Abel


Banda also contributed with a 194
high. Robert Rodriguez came in
with a 189 high.
The Lady Brahmans, now at 2-
4, kept their matches close, but
lost all three games. They were
led by Reba Spiess' 154 high
game.


The Brahman bowlers will be
on the road on Sept. 26 to take on
the Panthers from Ft. Pierce West-
wood. They will return to the Star-
dust Lanes in Okeechobee on
Sept. 28 when they meet the Port
St. Lucie Jaguars. Bowling will
begin at 3:30 p.m.


is in trouble and needs strong
conservation measures. I per-
sonally think there should be a
nine-inch limit on crappies. This
way they would be able to get in
at least one or two spawns
before being pulled from the
lake. That would help replenish
the crappie population. If you
keep pulling fish out before they
spawn, there won't be any new
generations of fish," stated Mr.
Parker. "Five years ago it was
common to catch at least one
crappie weighing at least one
and one-half pounds every time
you went out. Now, you don't
see crappies that large. I'm pre-
dicting a very poor season this
year. It was poor last year, but
this season will be even worse."
Mr. Parker doesn't only blame
spider-riggers on the drop in the
crappie population.
"In my opinion, the lake was
so high last year that it tore the
spawning grounds away. The
water level has been low (13.40
feet on Thursday vs. 15.58 feet
on the same date last year) and
the beds are beginning to come
back. We need to keep the lake


at a low level to let them contin-
ue to grow," said Mr. Parker.
"This lake is in trouble and we
need to step up and put strong
conservation practices in place."
FWC officer and spokesman
Jorge Peno said, "There is an
FWC squad of one lieutenant
and four' officers specifically
assigned to patrol Lake Okee-
chobee. Of course, there are oth-
ers officers to also help patrol
around the lake. Most people are
law abiding individuals. It's
those few who will break the
law no matter how many offi-
cers are out there."
Officer Peno explained that if

WHAT DO I NEED

TO DO BEFORE MAKING A

PURCHASE OFFER?
Even before starting to look at houses, find out what price house you can afford,
says syndicated columnist Dian Hymer.
Roughly speaking, Hymer says you can afford to buy a home equal in price to
three times your gross annual income.
More precisely, the price you can afford Io pay for a home will depend on six
factors:






S Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
0 ownership and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.

0 Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and
interest payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
0 The sum of these costs is referred to as OPITI.O Monthly homeownersO association
dues, if youOre purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are, added to the PITI.
0 Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.
L 0 Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.
