OHCF holds ceremony for vets


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Freedom isn't free.
Residents of the Okeechobee
Health Care Facility were remind-
ed of the high cost of freedom as
they honored the veterans in their
midst on Friday afternoon, Nov.
10.
They had their own Veteran's
Day Parade as residents who are
veterans, wearing special T-shirts
for the occasion, were escorted
into the dining room. Army Veter-


an William Cash carried the U.S.
Flag, while U.S. Navy veteran
James Price led the group in the
Pledge of Allegiance. Residents
sang the "Star Spangled Banner"
and "America the Beautiful," as
well as songs honoring each
branch of the military.
The American Legion Auxil-
iary presented the veterans with
gifts. As the veterans were pre-
sented their gifts, they were asked
what they did in the military. One
veteran who was a torpedoman
in the Navy said his mission was


to keep the torpedoes running
straight and fast. One man served
in the 82nd Airborne and suc-
cessfully completed 80 jumps.
Reverend Jim Hudson, pastor
of His House Fellowship Church
of the Nazarene and a U.S. Navy
veteran, was the featured speak-
er.
He mentioned the activities
that would take place tomorrow
at Arlington National Cemetery
when President George Bush will
receive a 21-gun salute and place
a wreath on the tomb of the

Unknown Soldiers at the 11th
hour of the 11th day of the 11th
month on the 87th anniversary of
the signing of the armistice end-
ing World War I.
Rev. Hudson noted that in
1921 an unknown solder from
World War I was buried at Arling-
ton. Armistice Day was pro-
claimed a national holiday by
congress to celebrate the end of
"the war to end all wars". Howev-
er, Rev. Hudson said war broke
out again not long after Armistice
Day was proclaimed a national


holiday.
In 1954, Congress changed
the name to Veteran's Day to
honor those who fought in World
War II and Korea. Then in 1985,
unknown soldiers from World
War II and the Korean War were
added to the Tomb of the
Unknown Soldier. In 1984, they
were joined by an unknown sol-
dier from the Vietnam War.
Since 1930, those tombs have
been guarded continually by the

Luncheon honors


local agriculture


By Katrina Elsken
Okeechobee News
The 13th Annual Farm-City
Week Luncheon, held Thursday
at the Okeechobee KOA, cele-
brated Okeechobee agriculture
- past, present and future.
Local agriculture industry
representatives offered visitors
orange juice, grapefruit juice
and milk along with informa-
tion on the local agriculture
industries.
Okeechobee County 4-H and
FFA Clubs manned booths high-
lighting their clubs. Club mem-
bers were ready to answer ques-
tions about their clubs, their
projects and about what they
have learned by participating in
4-H and FFA.
Kiwanis Chairman Clayton
Williams called 4-H representa-
tives to the stage to tell the


crowd a little about their organi-
zations.
The guest speaker, Judge
William Hendry, was dubbed by
Mr. Williams as "Professor
Emeritus of Okeechobee Coun-
ty History." Judge Hendry
explained his knowledge of
local agriculture comes from his
own life experience, as well as
historical research.
Judge Hendry said the histo-
ry of Okeechobee County was
shaped by agriculture interests,
but that those industries
changed over the years. In the
county's early years, commer-
cial fishing drove much of the
area's economy. In the early
1900s, the timber industry
thrived here. Row crops were
popular for a time, until devas-
tated alternately by drought and

"On Nov. 10, 2006, we want to
remember the men and women
who served the United States," he
said. "This freedom should never
be taken lightly. All freedom has a
price that must be paid."
I Rev. Hudson reminded the resi-
dents that it was a veteran and not
a preacher who gave us freedom
of religion; it was a veteran and
not a reporter who gave us free-
dom of the press; it was a veteran
and not a poet who gave us free-
dom of speech; and, it was aveter-
an and not a lawyer who gave us
the right to a trial by jury.

it off to you," he told the assem-

floods.
"In the 1870s settlers in the
area began to farm," Judge
Hendry explained.
There were no roads, only iso-
.lated Indian trails, he said.
The development of agricul-
iure depended on transportation,
he said. The settlers sent crops to
market on steam boats on the
Kissimmee River. But river traffic
was sometimes limited because
during dry spells, the river might
be too shallow for the larger boats
to navigate.
I He cited a newspaper article
from December 1906 which
reported citrus growers were
rushing to pick fruit because
steam boats were only going to
make two more trips this season
due to low water levels.
In 1914, the Florida East Coast
Railroad came down, Judge
Hendry continued.
"Once word of that the rail-
road was coming to Okeechobee,
things began to open up," he said.
Large commercial fish houses


Okeechobee News/Katrina Elsken
Judge William Hendry,
dubbed "Professor Emeritus
of Okeechobee County Histo-
ry," was the guest speaker at
the 13th Annual Farm-City
Week Luncheon on Thursday
at the Okeechobee KOA.
moved to Okeechobee and locat-
ed on Taylor Creek. An ice plant
was constructed to provide two to
three tons of ice per week for the
fish business.
"In its height, fishing put more
money into Okeechobee County
than any other industry," he said.


He said the population of
Okeechobee increased from less
than 350 persons in 1913 to more
than 1,100 persons in 1915.
Cattle have long been part of
the South Florida economy, but in
the early days of Okeechobee
County the cattle industry was not
as large as it is today, the judge
said.
In 1917, Okeechobee County
had fewer than 25,000 head of
cattle. In the 2002 agriculture cen-
sus, Okeechobee County ranked
number one in the state with
142,000 head of cattle, he said.
"In the early days, cattle were
driven to market usually over
great distances," Judge Hendry
said.
As a result, the cattle lost
weight on the trips. When the rail-
road came in, they constructed
stock pens at the railroad yard and
it was easy. to ship cattle by train.
The dairy industry also started
small.:Until about 1915, there
were only a few small independ-
ent dairies operating in Okee-
chobee, Judge Hendry said. In the
late 1950s through the 1960s and
1970s, many large, commercial
dairies moved into Okeechobee


County making it the top dairy
county in the state.
The local citrus industry was in
Okeechobee County as early as
1905, according to newspaper
articles. Now approximately
13,000 acres are devoted to citrus
groves.
Just after the turn of the centu-
ry the timber was active in the
Okeechobee County area with a
lumber company established in
Sherman, about six miles south-
east of Okeechobee. He said the
sawmill operated until about
1937, when the timber was
depleted.
Sweet potatoes, row crops and
sugar cane were also part of the
Okeechobee County agriculture
market over the years he said.
As the county grows and
changes, agriculture has changed
with it, he said. But some things
don't change.
Quoting his father, Judge
Hendry opined, "Agriculture is
hard work. It's not for sissies."
And he had a request for those
present: "When you sit down at
the dinner table, please include a
blessing for those who provided
your meal."

Educational experience is found in raising 4-H animals


College Station What
would you do if your child asked
for a pet goat?
You could look into 4-H,
where kids can learn about rais-
ing everything from rabbits to
steers. For many children, 4-H
(the four are head, heart, hands
and health) animal projects can
be some of the most education-
al and rewarding experiences in
life, but there .are important fac-
tors you and your children
should thoughtfully consider
before taking the leap.
-"Raising animals in 4-H
almost always requires a com-
mitment from the entire family,
but it is a great way for parents
and children to spend time
together," said Dr. Bruce
Lawhorn, a professor and exten-
sion swine veterinarian in the
College of Veterinary Medicine
& Biomedical Sciences at Texas
A&M University.
"The three main considera-
tions should be time, money
and space."
Whether they choose small
or large, caring for an animal of
any kind requires time.
"Children should understand
that every animal must be fed,
watered and cleaned up after

day, Nov. 8, 2006, at the Hamrick
Hospice House of Okeechobee.
A resident of Okeechobee for 22
years, Mr. Cole enjoyed flying his
own plane, traveling and fishing
and was a member of the VFW,
American Legion and the
National Rifle Association. He
served six and one half years in
the United States Navy during
World War II. He was a retired
roofing contractor.
Mr. Cole was preceded in
death by a son, Daniel.


usually twice a 'day. Keep in
mind that some animals, like
rabbits and chickens, can be
kept in the back yard while larg-
er animals are usually housed
some distance away, which can
substantially lengthen the daily
time commitment," said
Lawhorn.
Before purchasing an animal,
discuss the project's financial
obligations with a veterinarian,
your County Extension agent or
anyone who has raised animals,
particularly the type of animal
you are considering. Costs will
include the purchase price, vet-
erinary care, feeding, housing
and transportation of the ani-
mal.
"Purchasing an animal may
be your child's first lesson in
financial responsibility," adds
Lawhorn. "Children who. are
required by parents to earn the
money to purchase their ani-
mals quickly learn how to
research costs, budget and
make wise purchases."
The type of animal you
choose should depend on how
much space is available to you.
Children in rural areas will either
have family property to keep the
animals on, or have access to

group housing located at fair
grounds or other locations
obtained through the County
Extension agent.
Children in urban areas may
find that rabbits, chickens and
other small animals are the best
and most economical choice for
their space limitations.
Parents and children must
research city ordinances, zoning
laws and deed restrictions in
advance to be sure their 4-H
projects are in compliance. No
one would want a child's project
fouled through neighborhood
complaints of odor or health
problems.
Children who participate in
4-H animal projects learn to set
goals and achieve them. They
develop a sense of self-confi-
dence and responsibility, and
often later pursue their interests,
which began as 4-H projects.
Some children follow their 4-H
interests into careers in veteri-
nary medicine, agricultural eco-
nomics, academia or other ani-
mal related field.
"If you have discussed these
factors with your child and
decided to embark on a 4-H ani-
mal project," said Lawhorn,

Someone has said that there are
five foods which are essential in.
a person's growth. They are love,
learning, beauty, service and suf-
fering. Without these foods the
soul does not grow.
Given hunger the soul grows in
an experience of love. We are
nourished when one hungers for
learning, studies, seeks mastery
of a subject. Beauty comes only
when we strive to appreciate or
create the beautiful.
Suffering as food may seem to us
hard experiences, but have you
not noticed that men intent upon
spiritual achievement have
grown more surely and rapidly
when suffering was their lot,
rather than when life moved-
along like a song.
Thought To Remember: No
'high or higher stage in life is*
reached without devotion.

VOTING I know that the population is much greater than this in our
town, \ t~ are people choosing not to vote? If you do not use your right
to vote then you should not say anything about what happens to our

EXPECTATIONS: The last time we voted the population of our county
was around 35,000. We don't even have half of the population of Okee-
,i.'l',1, i i~'ri nor even registered. I realize the community has issues
that are important but I just think there could be something we could do
too register voters. As much as individuals in this community complain,
)ou would think the voting percent would be well over half of the popula-
tion.

OLD PROBLEM: Make sure when that when you asked for head count
they didn't include in those numbers all the little heads that aren't quite
old enough to vote. Ask for voting age population. The inability of getting
enough people interested in exercising the duty and right to vote is an
age-old problem. The most common attitude is that my vote doesn't real-
ly count, or let someone else do it. My best is when having a conversation
with someone and they start complaining about how the government is
run I politely ask: well, whom did you vote for in the election? If the
answer is I didn't vote, I then say 'well you do not have the right to stand
here and complain about it if you didn't even to take the time to vote.'

POLITICIANS: The election is over. Now the politicians can go back to
lying behind our backs in place of to our face.

MT. TRASHMORE: Before the money runs thin on Mount Trashmore,
perhaps the U.S. 98/Airport landfill needs to be addressed.
SELL IT: The Agri-Civic Center costs the Okeechobee County taxpayer
more than $1,000 a day. It has lost money since day one. Why don't they
just sell it? Then, let it be someone else's headache. The only thing the
community gets is one week a year when the livestock committee uses it.
That's more than $300,000 of tax money spent per year. Surely we could
find a less expensive alternative for the livestock show.

SHOOTING: Some people think they can just do whatever they want,
since they are on their own property. But firing a gun does affect their
neighbors because a bullet can travel. Even if they have 50 acres, if they
are firing a weapon too close to the edge of the property it could be a
problem for the neighbors.. ..

ETHICS: This is in response to the firing of Major kaulerson. He was at
work. He was acting in an official capacity, representing the City of Okee-
chobee Police Department and he violated a code of ethics. That's why
he was dismissed. It doesn't matter that FEMA was giving stuff away to
everyone around. He should have considered the ethics of when he was
up there in the public representing the City of Okeechobee. Unfortunate-
ly, he dropped all that in that official capacity and that's why he was dis-
missed.

THEFT: You know, it's pretty bad when you can't have a 12-foot pole
with a flag on it in your own yard that somebody didn't come after dark
and steal it. This happened to my neighbors. I don't know where your
minds are at. Heaven forbid you get any pleasure out of it because the
good Lord will take care of that. It's just terrible. You can't have anything
in your yard anymore.

UNFAIR: I would just like to say that it is unjust and unfair that these
young boys are in jail being labeled as sexual offenders because they had
a relationship with underage girls which was wholly consensual and OK
by the parents of the girls. So the boys are getting in trouble and the girls
are moving on to the next victim. The parents of the girls should also be
held accountable for their part in the situation. The boys are being
labeled for the rest of their lives and are being punished for caring about
somebody who has lied about their age. It happens all the time right here
in our town. It is unfair for these young guys to have their lives ruined for
caring and trusting these girls and their parents. I think Okeechobee
should do something about this.
* (Editor's Note: Locally, nothing can be done about this because the
law to which you refer is a state law. While a county can adopt a law
that is more stringent than that of the state's, it cannot adopt a weaker
law. Also, it is our understanding that this issue may come before state
legislators at their next session. Until then, you could contact the state
legislators that represent our district and express your concerns to them.
Their phone numbers and addresses can be found on the pink pages in
your telephone book.)

Letters to the Editor


In honor
of veterans
Close your eyes and bow your
head,
Let's give honor to our vets,
Who gave their life for their
country.
They were people like you and
me,
Who enjoyed being free,
That is why they gave their life,
For their country.
Oh they fought so bravely,
So we could continue being
free,
These people gave their life for
you and me,
From battlefield to battlefield,
they kept up their morale,
Knowing that they were doing
something for their country.
From Germany to Japan,
From Korea to Vietnam, and the
brave men and women,
Who lost their life fighting ter-
rorists in foreign lands.
So close your eyes and bow
your head, let's give honor to,
Our vets who gave their life for
our country.

This was written in appreciation
for all the brave and loyal American
veterans. May God bless all veter-
ans for our freedom. Freedom is
not free.
Dennis Hutcherson

What we owe
our soldiers
Every Veteran's Day we pay trib-
ute to our fellow Americans who
have served in the military. With
speeches and ceremonies, we rec-
ognize their courage and valor.
But justice demands that we


also recognize that we should have
far more living veterans than we
do. All too many of our soldiers
have died unnecessarily -
because they were sent to fight for
a purpose other than America's
freedom.
The proper purpose of a gov-
ernment is to protect its citizens'
lives and freedom against the initia-
tion of force by criminals at home
and aggressors abroad. The Ameri-
can government has a sacred
responsibility to recognize the indi-
vidual value of every one of its citi-
zens' lives, and thus to do every-
thing possible to protect the rights
of each to life, liberty, property and
the pursuit of happiness.
This absolutely includes our sol-
diers.
Soldiers are not sacrificial
objects; they are full-fledged Amer-
icans with the same moral right as
the rest of us to the pursuit of their
own goals, their own dreams and
their own happiness. Rational sol-
diers enjoy much of the work of
military service, take pride in their
ability to do it superlatively and
gain profound satisfaction in pro-
tecting the freedom of every Ameri-
can including their own free-
dom.
Soldiers know that in entering
the military, they are risking their
lives in the event of war. But this
risk is not, as it is often described, a
"sacrifice" for a "higher cause."'
When there is a true threat to
America, it is a threat to all of our
lives and loved ones soldiers
included. Many become soldiers
for precisely this reason; it was, for
instance, the realization of the
threat of Islamic terrorism after
Sept. 11 when 3,000 innocent
Americans were slaughtered in
cold blood on a random Tuesday

morning that prompted so
many to join the military.
For an American soldier, to fight
for freedom is not to fight for a
"higher cause," separate from or
superior to his own life it is to
fight for his own life and happiness.
He is willing to risk his life in time of
war because he is unwilling to live
as anything other than a free man.
He does not want or expect to die,
but he would rather die than live in
slavery or perpetual fear. His atti-
tude is epitomized by the words of
John Stark, New Hampshire's
most famous soldier in the Revolu-
tionary War: "Live free or die."
What we owe these men who
fight so bravely for their and our
freedom is to send them to war
only when that freedom is truly
threatened, and to make every
effort to protect their lives during
war by providing them with the
most advantageous weapons,
training, strategy and tactics possi-
ble.
Shamefully, America has
repeatedly failed to meet this obli-
gation. It has repeatedly placed sol-
diers in harm's way when no threat
to America existed e.g., to quell
tribal conflicts in Somalia, Bosnia
and Kosovo.
America entered World War I,
in which 115,000 soldiers died,
with no clear self-defense purpose
but rather on the vague, self-sacrifi-
cial grounds that "The world must
be made safe for democracy."
America's involvement in Viet-
nam, in which 56,000 Americans
died in a fiasco that American offi-
cials openly declared a "no-win"
war, was justified primarily in the
name of service to the South Viet-
namese.
And the current war in Iraq -
which could have had a valid pur-


pose as a first step in ousting the
terrorist-sponsoring, anti-American
regimes of the Middle East is
responsible for thousands of
unnecessary American deaths in
pursuit of the sacrificial goal of "civ-
ilizing" Iraq by enabling Iraqis to
select any government they wish,
no matter how anti-American.
In addition to being sent on ill-
conceived, humanitarian" mis-
sions, our soldiers have been com-
promised with crippling rules of
engagement that place the lives of
civilians in enemy territory above
their own.
In Afghanistan we refused to
bomb many top leaders out of their
hideouts for fear of civilian casual-
ties these men continue to kill
American soldiers. In Iraq, our
hamstrung soldiers are not
allowed to smash a militarily puny
insurgency and instead must
suffer an endless series of deaths
by an undefeated enemy.
To send soldiers into war with-
out a clear self-defense purpose,
and without providing them every
possible protection, is a betrayal of
their valor and a violation of their
rights.
This Veteran's Day we must call
for a stop to the sacrifice of our sol-
diers and condemn all those who
demand it. It is only by doing so
that we can truly honor not only
our dead, but also our living -
American soldiers who have the
courage to defend their freedom
and ours.

DrH OF CHRIS
UJA%-j STI


By Brother Don Kovacs
First Baptist Church of Basinger
"When you pray, do not use
vain repetitions as the heathen
do ... for your Father knows the
things you have need of before
you ask Him. In this manner,
therefore, pray: Our Father in
heaven, hallowed be Your
name." (Mt. 6:7-9).
"Let us therefore come boldly
to the throne of grace, that we
may obtain mercy and find grace
to help in time of need." (Heb.
4:16).
Jesus and His disciples have
made it clear that we indeed can
come to God in prayer because
we are family through faith in
Christ. If I wanted to meet with a
government official, I would
have to make an appointment
days or months in advance. But
when I want to talk with my fam-
ily I simply pick up the phone
and call them. Why? Because
we're family. My two children
know they can come and talk to
me anytime at all. No appoint-
ments are necessary. They don't
have to put on their best clothes
or follow an outline of what to
say. Why? Because we're family.
In Romans 8:15 the apostle
Paul said that because we are
God's adopted children, we can
cry "Abba Father". In the New
Testament, God is called Father
at least 275 times, and that is


fill us with awe. But because it is
a throne of grace, it is approach-
able.
What is your prayer life like?
I don't know about you, but
these truths from the Bible help
me to see that heaven's door is
always open to me as a member
of God's family. The Father is
eagerly waiting for my next visit,
longing to hear my words ol
affection, to hear of my strug-
gles, to hear that I depend on
Him for everything in life. I hope
you, too, are sensing the won-
der, privilege and opportunity
we have as God's children.
God bless.

Brahman hoopsters begin season


By Loma Jablonski
Okeechobee News
In the world of high school
sports, November marks the
beginning of basketball season.
The following student athletes
will represent the Okeechobee
High School Brahmans on the
basketball court for the 2006-2007
season:

Trap Shoot

held at

Dixie Ranch
It was a breezy Saturday
morning for learning how to
shoot, but the members and
leaders of Sharp Shooters 4-H
Club pulled it off. The first shoot
of the 4-H year was held Nov. 4 at
The Dixie Ranch. Woody Larson
was very gracious for allowing
the kids to practice and learn
shooting techniques at his
ranch. Jacob Larson was the first
president of the Sharp Shooters
4-H Club when it originally
formed 13 years ago with Don
Sellers as the organizational
leader.
Members started the day
learning how to sight clay
pigeons. Mr. Sellers asked mem-
bers to stand in a straight line
and point their finger straight for-
ward. When "pull" was called,
they were asked to follow the
target with their finger until it
landed on the ground. This
action was done to mimic the
movements you would use with
your gun in hand.
Next, all shooters were
reminded to keep guns on the
table, chambers open and to
always point the muzzle in a safe
direction when holding a gun.
Members shot 410, 12 and 20
gauge shot guns, starting with
one target and increasing to two
(one right after another).Volun-
teer David Stokes put on a show


ior), David Jeune (sophomore),
Timmy Williams (junior), Chris
Hall (junior), Casey Sammons
(junior) and Omar Santibanez
(senior). They will be led by head
coach Jon Enrico. Assistant
coaches are John Hirst and John
Hulls.


The Brahman junior varsity
basketball team consists of Bobby
Spelts (junior), Corey White
(sophomore), Mike Minando
(sophomore), Raymond Aguilar
(junior), Kareem Jones (sopho-
more), Daniel Cottone (junior),
Pablo Casdenas (sophomore),
Joey Voss (sophomore), Patrick
Thornton (sophomore), Jose
Nazario (sophomore), Kerwin
Givens (sophomore) and T.J.
Allen (freshman). They will be
coached by Bryan Van Camp.
The ninth grade team will con-


sist of Duelle Gore, Chad Zabel,
Richard Nieto, Francisco Arellano,
Chris Wegman, Miguel Garduno,
Lionel Jones, Jonathan Hudoff,
Matt Skipper, Cody Herring, Bran-
don Griesemer, Ryan Osceola,
Austin Willard, Tony Kiebler and
Brett Spencer.
The season officially begins
with the annual Tip-Off Classic to
be held on Nov. 14 and 16 at the
O.H.S. gym. The junior varsity
game will begin at 6 p.m., fol-
lowed by the varsity game at 7:30
p.m.

First year member Nicholas Flood practiced with a target air rifle at the Trap Shoot held at
Dixie Ranch last Saturday.


by shooting all ten clays, while
shooting doubles.
Leader Jimmie Howell assist-
ed the new and younger mem-
bers with target air rifles. There
are many new "sharp" shooters
this year. Nicholas Flood shot at
least twenty rounds in the center
of the target through the steady
breeze, as did other members.
After the shoot, some members
met at Mr. Sellers' for another
important lesson-how to clean a
gun. It is critical to always clean
a gun after a shoot, in order to
maintain it properly.

City leaders' dinners subject of FDLE probe


COOPER CITY Governor Jeb
Bush said Thursday that he has
asked for a preliminary inquiry into
allegations the city's government
leaders violated state law by having
private dinners before City Com-
mission meetings, authorities said.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement will try to determine
whether criminal charges should
be filed, FDLE spokeswoman
Heather Smith said. The request
was made Wednesday.
Under Florida law, government
meetings where public issues are
discussed are supposed to be open
to residents.
"This doesn't seem very appro-


private Bush said. "I've asked for
the FDLE to begin a preliminary
inquiry into this, not a full-blown
investigation."
Bush's general counsel had
written to Cooper City Mayor
Debby Eisinger on Friday asking for
information about the dinners.
Eisinger responded Wednesday in
a 12-page letter.
She denied allegations officials
drove under the influence of alco-
hol and violated Florida's Govern-
ment in the Sunshine Law, which
bars leaders from discussing city
business in private.
Eisinger reiterated statements
by city leaders that the dinners are a


long-standing tradition meant to
build relationships. She blamed
"dissidents with their own agenda"
for the allegations.
Bush's request for information
came after WFOR-TV in Miami
reported that the mayor, four other
city commissioners, the city man-
ager and other senior staff mem-
bers of this Broward County sub-
urb met in restaurants and bars
before meetings. Some were seen
holding wine glasses in the televi-
sion report.
A message left after hours by
The Associated Press at the com-
missioners' office was not immedi-
ately returned.

DCF ordered to use licensed facilities


Available from Commercial News Providers"


TALLAHASSEE A judge
Thursday ordered the state to
temporarily house foster children
only in licensed facilities in a law-
suit prompted by the use of a con-
ference room to shelter children.
Circuit Judge Janet Ferris
found that dependent children
have a clear right established by
the Legislature to emergency and
permanent placement in state-
licensed facilities.
"Holding children in office
conference rooms, or other unli-
censed facilities, violates that


mandate," she wrote.
The Department of Children
& Families had argued that it was
exempt from state licensing
requirements.
Department lawyers will
examine the ruling next week
and then a decision will be made
on whether to appeal, said DCF
spokesman Al Zimmerman.
The San Francisco-based
Youth Law Center, the Children's
Advocacy Center at Florida State
University and Nova Southeast-
ern University law professor


Michael Dale sued on behalf of
foster children who had been
kept for several days in a Tallahas-
see conference room shared by
the department and a contractor.
"Prohibiting the use of unli-
censed facilities represents a
commitment to appropriate
treatment for all children in foster
care," said Paolo Annino, a
lawyer for the foster children.
The contractor, Big Bend
Community Based Care, settled
in August by agreeing to no
longer use unlicensed facilities.


County employees charged with fraud


TAMPA A former employee
for the Hillsborough County tax
collector's office has been charged
with making $25,000 by selling
fraudulent driver's licenses and
altering immigration information,
authorities said.
Deisy Oropesa, 30, a former
senior customer service represen-
tative, admitted accepting $200 per
transaction for fraudulent licenses
and altering the citizenship status
of 58 people, according to a crimi-
nal arrest affidavit released Thurs-
day by the Florida Highway Patrol.
Oropesa was charged with 174
counts of fraud, corruption and

Medical

center cop

is indicted
TAMPA A police captain -at a
veteran's medical center has been
indicted by a federal grand jury on
child pornography charges, accord-
ing to the U.S. attorney's office.
The three-page indictment filed
Wednesday said Bruce Allen
Scheller, 35, "knowingly possessed
... pictures of minors engaged in
sexually explicit conduct."
Scheller worked at James A.
Haley VA Medical Center. He faces
a maximum penalty of 10 years in
jail and a fine of $250,000, said
Steve Cole, a spokesman for the
U.S. attorney's office.
Ralph Fernandez, Scheller's
attorney, said his client is expected
to turn himself in Monday morning.
"It's an unusual case, and that's
what makes it a very difficult case,"
Fernandez said. "It's a serious
accusation."
Scheller was put on paid leave
in July after the FBI notified the
hospital of an investigation, Haley
spokeswoman Carolyn Clark said.
"VA officials have cooperated
fully with the investigation," she
said. There is "no evidence that the
officer conducted any illegal activi-
ty while on duty or with any VA
computer equipment."


official misconduct by a public
employee. She was being held Fri-
day at the Hillsborough County jail
on $665,000 bail.
Also arrested was 39-year-old
Dora Ines Cana, charged with fraud-
ulent identification, for allegedly
obtaining a fake license from
Oropesa. Cana told authorities she
gave $1,200 to another woman,
according to an arrest affidavit.


It was not immediately known
if either woman had attorneys.
Management at the tax collec-
tor's office first noticed irregulari-
ties in Oropesa's transactions in
September and notified the FHP,
according to a prepared statement
issued by the tax office. In each
case, Oropesa changed the status
of the non citizens to U.S. citizen,
according to the affidavit.

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 to pay for a home will depend on six
factors:







S Lenders also analyze your income in relation to your projected cost of home
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. 0 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.
6 0 Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range. 1,
