still in effect
According to the Glades
County Division of Emergency
Management the burn ban in
Glades County has not been
lifted, and will remain in effect
until further notice. For infor-
mation, call (863) 946-6020.

New watering
limits in effect
The Okeechobee area is
now under Phase III water re-
strictions.
Lawn watering is now lim-
ited to one day a week from 4
until 8 a.m. and 5 until 7 p.m.
for low volume hand watering.
Addresses with odd num-
bers are permitted to water on
Saturday and addresses with
even numbers are permitted to
irrigate on Sundays.
More information is avail-
able by calling (800) 250-4200;
or, by going to the South Flori-
da Water Management website
at www.sfwmd.gov.

Navigation lock
on river closed
The S-65E navigation lock
on the Kissimmee River will be
closed to navigation due to low
water levels.
This South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
lock will remain closed until
water levels have returned to
safe operating levels.
Low water levels inside the
lock chamber have caused the
concrete sill at the entrance
and the manatee protection
device installed in the bottom
of the lock chamber to become
a navigation hazard. Also, the
lakeward approach to the
navigation lock has become
shallow enough that boaters
may have difficulty navigating
safely.
For information, contact the
SFWMD Okeechobee Service
Center at (800) 250-4200 or

Man's death under investigation


Deputies enter
home filled with
gasoline, propane

By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
When deputies from the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO) received a call
to check on the welfare of an
Okeechobee man Friday, little
did they know the danger that
was awaiting them.
OCSO deputies went to the
N.W. 30th St. home of Webster
Burton to check on his well be-


ing. When they arrived at his
three-bedroom mobile home,
both doors were locked. They
then peered through a window
and saw Mr. Burton lying on the
living room floor.
The man's cause of death will
be determined by an autopsy. In-
vestigators declined to speculate
as to how Mr. Burton died.
The deputies also noticed
something else at the home -
- a very strong odor of gasoline
coming from inside the 60-foot x
14-foot mobile home.
OCSO deputies Mark Mar-
gerum and Mark Shireman then
notified Lt. Dexter Brock, who


contacted the OCSO Special Re-
sponse Team (SRT).
SRT leader Lt. Billy Markham
said he and SRT team members
Cpl. Jack Nash and Cpl. Brian
Hagan had to force open the
back door of the mobile home,
but did so "really, really care-
fully."
Once inside, they immedi-
ately saw gas cans sitting on the
floor. Mr. Burton was at the other
end of the home.
"He was unresponsive to us,"
said Lt. Markham.
Lt. Markham said Mr. Burton
had apparently doused every
room of the house in gasoline.


Also, a small cannister of pro-
pane gas was found open and
spewing its contents into the
air. On top of that, said lead in-
vestigator Detective Rick Durfee,
Mr. Burton had apparently un-
hooked the propane gas lines to
his stove and its contents were
also emptying into the air.
The SRT members quickly
left the home and had all other
law enforcement members at
the scene move away from the
home.
The bomb squad from the
St. Lucie County Sheriff's Office
was called to the scene, but no
bombs were found.


Lt. Markham said the pro-
pane tanks were shut off and the
home opened for ventilation.
"The bomb squad went into
the residence and checked him
and the home for any sort of ex-
plosive," said Lt. Markham.
He went on to say the bomb
squad found no type of device
rigged to cause an explosion.
, A letter was found, but inves-
tigators have not released the
letter since it is still an open in-
vestigation.
Detective Durfee said when
he finally went into the home he

Monday, June 11, marked
the kick off of the 17th annual
H20 camp hosted by the 4-H ex-
tension office in Okeechobee.
The day camp will run for
four weeks.
"The kids have a test on
Monday, and retake the same
one on Friday to see what they
have learned throughout the
week," said Carrie Thompson,
head of the camp. "This is re-
ally an aquatic education pro-
gram."
The camp is the brain child
of 4-H agent Debbie Clements.
The camp will have the children
learning how to fish and learn-
ing about the importance of
water management. The camp
will take the students out of
town, to places like Gatorland
and Orlando, as well as giving
them contact with children
their own age over the summer
break.
"The kids will go ice skating,
go to a science museum and
take a trip to blizzard beach.
They will also be dissecting a
starfish at some point," stated
Ms. Thompson.

Local man killed in S.R. 70 crash


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was
killed Saturday shortly after 11
p.m. in a two-car accident on S.R.
70 W, according to a report by the
Florida Highway Patrol (FHP).
Dead at the scene was Jospeh
L. Aguillard, 44. The FHP report
did not list his home address.
Also involved in the accident
was Cesar G. Lomelin-Flores, 38,
of Lake Worth who was charged
with driving under the influence --
manslaughter and driving while li-
cense suspended. He was booked
into the Okeechobee County Jail

and OCSO crime scene Detective
Fred Bradley found a large num-
ber of guns.
"There were guns in every
corner of every room," said De-
tective Durfee. "We took out over
20 guns."
He said they found handguns,
rifles, shotguns and BB guns.
The detective said as of Mon-
day, June 11, he knew of no rea-
son why Mr. Burton had doused
his home in gasoline and had pro-
pane gas spewing into the home.
He would also not comment on


Taxes

gallon gasoline tax. If approved,
the new tax would go into effect
on Jan. 1. 2008, and continue un-
til Dec. 31,2017.
This additional gasoline tax
would be used to supplement the
recently approved impact fees for
transportation projects. Impact
fees will fund only 25 to 30 per-
cent of a project. Therefore, the
board is looking to the additional'
gasoline tax to make up the differ-
ence for impact fee projects.
For comparison, Glades Coun-
ty has a total of 7 cents a gallon
gasoline tax. Hendry County has
9 cents; Highlands County col-
lects a total of 12 cents a. gallon;
Martin, Palm Beach and St. Lucie
counties collect 12 cents a gallon;
and, Osceola County collects 7
cents a gallon.
For some months, the board
and the cattlemen's association
have been negotiating for the use
of the county's Agri-Civic Center.
Originally, the cattlemen wanted
to lease the facility for 26 days a
year. The county was requesting
the cattlemen pay a percentage of
the profits.
At the last meeting of the two
groups, it appeared that the cattle-
men were interested in leasing the
arena for just the Speckled Perch
and Labor Day Rodeos. They also
favored paying the standard daily
rental rate of about $1,000 a day
plus utilities.
The- cattlemen had originally
requested that the county expand
the seating capacity of the arena
at the county's expense and to
put in ticket booths and an office.,
The county had requested that
cattleman pay a portion of the
improvement costs. At their last
meeting on the subject, commis-
sioners appeared to be divided on
the issue of whether or not the
county should foot the entire bill
for the expansion.
This time, the cattlemen are
asking that the county bear the
cost of numbering the seats to fa-
cilitate ticket sales.
Turning to another issue, the
board .will consider a bypass
route around the western side of
the city between S.R. 70 and S.R.
78. As part of the terms of agree-
ment to haul shell rock from .his
property onto county roads, Os-
car Daniel agreed to provide right
of way for a bypass road through

$50 would trigger a shut off. -
Since this is the second public
hearing on the matter, the board
is expected to take final action on
the resolution after the hearing.
The second public hearing is
concerned with clarifying defi-
nitions in the rate schedule and
will have no bearing on the ac-
tual rates. This is the first of two
scheduled public hearings on the
rate schedule definitions. The
board will not take action on
the matter until after the second.
public hearing.
Turning to another matter,
the board will be discussing
the Cemetary Road Wastewater
Treatment Plant expansion. The
board will be discussing an engi-
neering agreement with Metzgar
and Willard. They will also be
hearing an update on the loan
application for the construction
and credit arrangements, as well
as awarding a contract.
In other action, the board is
schedueld to:
receive the audit for fiscal
year 2006;
receive the finance report


under a bond of $105,000.
According to jail records, he is
scheduled to go to court on July
18.
The report by Trooper G.H.
Koblitz states that Lomelin-Flores
tried to pass Mr. Aguillard about
7 miles west of Okeechobee. As
Lomelin-Flores was attempting
the pass in his 1997 Ford Taurus
he steered sharply to his right
as he tried to return to the west
bound lane. Both vehicles were
westbound, stated the trooper's
report.
The maneuver by Lomelin-
Flores caused the right front of


how the man had died.
As for Mr. Burton's back-
ground, Detective Durfee said as
far as he knew the man had not
been arrested locally.
"I remember dealing With him
a couple of times, but nothing
major," he said.
The detective said Mr. Burton
had been married six times, but
was not currently married.
It was not known as of news-
paper deadline Monday if the
autopsy on Mr. Burton had been
completed.

A Thought TO
/ Remember
0
- on
There is an old Spanish
'" proverb that goes like this: "If I
have lost the rings, here are the
fingers still."
This proverb brings a great
lesson in
encourage-
ment to dis-
appointed
hearts. A
person who
loses a ring --
loses only a
By Paul ring. There
xto can be other
Buxton rings some-
day and they will still have the
fingers on which to wear them.
Someone has said: "We shall
one day thank God as much for
our sorrows as for our joys."
Even though shadows seem to
lie more thickly than sunlight,
and winters seem to be more
dominant than Spring.
Remember the landscape is
beautiful by the alternation of
mountain and valleys, of hill
and meadow, of river and
island, so is life by its apparent
contradictions, by its lights and
... shadows.
