Alvarez found guilty: gets life


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
In less than 30 minutes, Mark Alvarez
lost his freedom.
A jury of his peers found the 18 year-
old guilty on two counts of first-degree
murder with a firearm and one count
of second degree arson. Then, about 30
minutes later, Circuit Court Judge Sher-
wood Bauer, Jr. sentenced Alvarez to two
life sentences for the murders of Curtis
Wayne Lindon Tenney and Elizabeth
Johnson, and another 15 years for sec-
ond degree arson.
Each murder charge carries a mihi-
1 mum mandatory prison sentence of 25
years. The minimum mandatory sen-
tence on the arson charge is 10 years.
S This means Alvarez must serve a manda-


tory 65 years in prison.
"He will never get out," said Rebecca
Johnson, the mother of Elilzabeth, after
the sentencing Friday afternoon. "I feel
sorry for his family, but
I'm glad it's over with."
Prior to handing
down his decision,
Judge Bauer looked at
Alvarez standing be-
hind the defense table
in handcuffs and told
him he was not being
sentenced to prison for Mark
rehabilitation. Alvarez
You are being sen-
tenced as punishment for what occurred.
At some point you forfeit the right to live
in my society -- in their society," he said
pointing to the families. "Obviously, there


is nothing I can say that would make the
families feel any better. Maybe this will
provide them some closure."
Before Judge Bauer sentenced Alva-
rez, different family members were al-
lowed to speak.
"His life was cut short by someone
he called a friend," said Pamela Tenney,
Curtis' mother. "You can't even look at us
and tell us why.
"You think you're going to live a life
sentence? I live a life sentence every
day because of you and what you have
done," she cried.
Through her tears, Mrs. Johnson
talked about her daughter's prized pos-
session, her 2004 40th anniversary Ford
Mustang convertible the very car in
which she and Mr. Tenney were killed.
The bodies were found on N.E. 11th St.


She said her daughter, then 19, want-
ed to be a schoolteacher.
"I don't have my beautiful daughter
any more," she sobbed.
Although Judge Bauer offered, Alva-
rez did not make a statement.
During his closing argument Friday
morning, defense attorney Rober Udell
told the jury it wasn't his client who was
guilty of murder, but his younger brother
- Manuel 'Junior' Alvarez.
Mark Alvarez was found guilty of kill-
ing Mr. Tenney and Miss Johnson on
Jan. 8, 2006, by shooting each of them
in the head with a .38 caliber revolver.
The arson conviction stemmed from
his burning the car in which the victims
were sitting.
While Mr. Udell presented no wit-
nesses on behalf of his client, he did at-


tack the state's case in his closing. He
said there were no witnesses to place
his client at the scene and no trace evi-
dence or forensic evidence that placed
Mark Alvarez on the isolated and dark
dead end street in Four Seasons where
the bodies of the couple were found.
"Mark is taking the fall for Junior,"
said Mr. Udell to the jury. "You might not
take the fall for a family member, but he
is. Have you never heard of that happen-
ing before? That's what's happening in
this case."
But, according to Detective Sergeant
T.J. Brock of the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office and the lead investigator
in the case, he spoke with Junior Alva-
rez during the investigation. He said he

Tax reform



effect still



an unknown


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Recently passed legislation
could cause some belt tighten-
ing as county officials prepare
a budget for the coming fiscal
year.,
While much has been writ-
ten and broadcast about the
potential savings to the average
taxpayer as a result of recent
property tax reforms, little has
been said about the affect on
county and state governments.
The Associated Press es-
timates that the average esti-
mated tax cut for a primary
homeowner as a result of the


legislation signed June 21 by
Governor Charlie Crist is $174,
or 7 percent the first year. The
savings on second home and
other residential properties was
estimated to be $199, also 7
percent. The savings on com-
mercial-industrial property-is -
estimated to be $941, or 6 per-
cent.
While individual taxpayers
will be facing some relief, the
new law could mean a reduc-
tion in county services. How-
ever, it is not clear at this point
how great that reduction will
be. The details of the legisla-

new development


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The City Planning Board/
Board of Adjustments and Ap-
peals heard many applications
at their meeting on Thursday,
June 21, that were recom-
mended for denial by the city
planners although the board
chose to go against their rec-
ommendations.
The application for the mul-
tifamily development Southern
Trace is not new to the Plan-
ning Board and was presented
from Steve Dobbs, of Rudd
Jones, P.E. and Associates,
P.A., on behalf of the applicant
InSite Development, LLC.
This part of their process
called for the rezoning of


11.29-acres along the west side
of Northwest Seventh Avenue
and between Northwest llth
and Northwest 13th Streets.
The entire development en-
compasses approximately 26
acres located on three blocks
from Northwest 11th Street to
Northwest 14th Street within
Northwest Fifth Avenue and
Northwest Third Avenue and
on two blocks located be-
tween Northwest 11th Street
and Northwest 13th Street and
Northwest Seventh Avenue and
Northwest Fifth Avenue.
The site will hold 230 units,
as well as required open spac-
es such as parks and other
recreational areas. The project

City planners vote 4-2


against commercial project


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The City Planning Board/
Board of Adjustments and Ap-
peals met Thursday, June 21,
and discussed the issue of tran-
sitioning commercial uses into
residential areas.
While the board voted to rec-
ommend denial for the applica-
tion for the small scale future
land use change and rezoning
application submitted by Brad


Goodbread on behalf of prop-
erty owner G4 Land and Cattle
Co./George A. Goodbread for
property located at 2104 S.W
Second Ave., the application
brought up issues with plan-
ning and direction that are not
clearly identified for the west
side of Second Avenue inside
the city limits.
The application was to
change the future land use
from residential single family


to commercial, and the zoning
from residential single family to
light commercial.
Permitted uses in the light
commercial zoning district
are: professional, business and
medical office; retail store, retail
service; personal service; and,

uses in this zoning category
can be granted for the follow-

found no evidence that he had
any responsibility in the case.
"The defendant did not give
us anyone else to look at," said
Sgt. Brock after the trial.
Mr. Udell, in his closing, also
spoke of the 13 witnesses put on
by the state.
"What they proved was that
Curtis and Elizabeth were killed,"
he told the jury Friday morning.
"They did not prove that Mark
killed them."
However, when Assistant
State Attorney Tom Bakkedahl

tion have not been worked out
enough yet to determine exactly
how much of a cut individual
counties and cities will face.
The Florida Department of Rev-
enue (DOR) is working to identify
the basis for city and county tax
rollbacks.
Okeechobee County admin-
istrator George Long said the
DOR would provide information
the county does not have at this
time.
Mr. Long said there is still a lot
of uncertainty about how the law
will be administered.
He estimates the county's in-
come from ad valorem taxes for
the coming fiscal year will be at
least 3 percent less than the cur-
rent budget. That would translate
to a $396,944 reduction in the

will be developed in two phases
consisting of 114 units in the first
phase and 116 in the second. The
first phase is also expected to go
for site plan review before the city
Technical Review Committee on
June 27, where their application
had previously been postponed.
Although this application has
been before the board many
times, the city planner's traffic
'specialist, Mosen Falehi, still did
not feel comfortable that all as-
pects of the traffic study had been
completed to his satisfaction.
His concern is that unless the
*traffic volume of local roadways
in the area is known, they are re-
ally not in the position to know if
it would meet standards or not.
The application process for
this development began in Janu-
ary of 2006. The issues that have
arisen are primarily with the lack
of current information from the
Department of Transportation
(DOT). DOT will be releasing their
new information which takes into

This change is being requested
due to the pending development

by the same property owner.
With the projected site plan the

his message was simple: "Mark
Alvarez is a murderer. Period."
According to Mr. Bakkedahl,
Mark Alvarez called Mr. Tenney
on Sunday, Jan. 8, and offered to
meet him to return two Playsta-
tion games that he had borrowed
from Mr. Tenney. Mark Alvarez
told investigators that Mr. Ten-
ney then picked him up in Miss
Johnson's car at the Circle K con-
venience store on U.S. 441 N. at
7:49 p.m. The problem with that


budget. For fiscal year 2008-09,
he predicts a reduction of at least
$1.2 million over the previous
cut.
The taxable value of new
construction that was not on
last year's tax roll could lessen
the amount of the reduction.
Okeechobee County Property
Appraiser Bill Sherman thinks
that figure will make a difference.
However, both men stressed
that the figures used at this time
are only preliminary. They could
change as more information be-
comes available.
Mr. Long anticipates address-
ing fiscal year 2008-09 losses in
the 2007-08 budget.
"We will need to deal with it
now and not wait," he said.
He said this was not a one-year
situation, but just the beginning
for tax rollbacks.
"This year is going to be very
important. We need to be cau-


account the four-lane revisions to
U.S. 441.
Also, it is apparent that there
will be a need for a traffic light at
some point at the intersection of
Northwest Ninth St. and U.S. 441
when it is deemed necessary by
DOT. Quite often there is a gap in
time where needing a signal at an
intersection and meeting the level
of service to where DOT allows a
signal to be placed occurs.
According to the traffic special-
ists, this falls in that gap. Based on
the complexity of this situation,
and the personal experience by
the board members, they chose
to go against the planner's rec-
ommendation for denial and
chose to send a recommendation
of approval to the City Council.
In other business, the Planning
Board also chose to go against the
recommendation of the planners
and grant a variance to property
owners Southeast Milk, Inc. to al-
low additions to their existing lo-
cation at 1005 W.N. Park St.
Due to the existing building's
location, the new building would
be blocking existing doors if
placed at the current required set-


Avenue BBQ & Grille, a bank and
other retail space.
Due to the parking require-
ments of these businesses, ad-
joining property is needed to
meet the parking regulations. The
city planner is recommending de-
nial for this application because
the commercial use is incompat-
ible with the surrounding area,
and it introduces the opportunity
for future requests for changes
from residential to commercial
on nearby properties.
As this change would encroach
into the existing residential single
family zone, the request sparked
issues with the board on future
planning and the creation of some
sort of transition period or overlay
'that future applications would be
able to go by that would prevent
the constant debate about wheth-
er to change the future land use
for a certain corridor of land that
is adjacent to historic residential
neighborhoods.
Brad Goodbread told the


statement, continued Mr. Bakke-
dahl, was that Curtis was with his
father at that time. ,
Curtis and his father, James
Tenney, were driving around
Okeechobee looking for Cur-
tis' younger brother, Jeff. James
Tenney took Curtis back to Miss
Johnson's new mobile home lo-
cated next to the Post Office at
8:45 p.m.
According to the prosecutor,
Mark Alvarez got Curtis to meet


tious," the administrator said.
However, there is some good
news for the county,
"This county is in a much bet-
ter position and will not be hurt
as much as the other cities and
counties," according to Mr. Long.
He said some counties will be
required to reduce taxes by up to
9 percent.
Currently, all ad valorem taxes
are used for the operation of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of-
fice (OCSO). Operating areas sup-
ported by other funding will not
be affected by the tax la%%.
"My goal is to preserve cur-
rently funded positions," Mr. Long
said when asked about possible
lay offs.
He went on to say that
Okeechobee County does not
have excess personnel and that in
some areas the county is under-
staffed.
"I do not expect any one op-


back along the south side of their
property..
The applicant and the board
compromised in order to create
the most aesthetic situation for
the area in order to achieve their
goal of beautifying their property.
The new building will be used to
store materials that are'currently
stored outdoors on the property.
The board chose to grant the vari-
ance with a 3-foot setback with
landscaping requirements instead
of granting the zero setback that.
they were requesting.
The same applicant was also
granted a variance to extend their
existing building which was built
on the lot line when it was still al-
lowed in the heavy commercial
zone.
Southeast Milk is adding store
frontage to their building in or-
der to add retail space and office
space.
Also recommended for denial
by the planner was a small scale
future land use change and rezon-
ing from residential single family
to light commercial submitted by
Vikki Aaron, on behalf of property
owner Mauro Tovar concerning


board that this definitely needed
to be done and it seemed likely
that this area would eventually be
all commercial, since it is a block
away from one of the most com-
mercial intersections in the city
- the controlled intersection at
Wal-Mart and U.S. 441.
He went on to say commer-
cial zoning should generate from
this intersection where such a
large commercial use is already
in place.
When asked if he would want
this type of development in his
backyard, board Chairman Wil-
liam Ledferd said a parking lot
would not offend him as long as
he had a block wall buffer. He
went on to state that a buffer or
block wall is required almost ev-
erywhere there is a commercial
development. Buffers would be
required at the site plan level, if
approved.
Mack Worley, speaking as
a citizen not for or against the
change in use, said it seemed that


him in Four Seasons under the
guise of wanting to return the
games. What he didn't count on,
however, was Miss Johnson also
being in the car.
"His intent was to kill Curtis
Tenney," said Mr. Bakkedahl. "He
had to kill Elizabeth. He eliminat-
ed a witness."
As he ended his closing, Mr.
Bakkedahl told the jury to use
their common sense because
"this case cries out common
sense."
"If your verdict speaks the
truth, Mark Alvarez is guilty of
first degree murder," he said.
Shortly before 1:30 p.m. Fri-
day, the jury spoke.


rating area to incur the entire
reduction," Mr. Long said.
At this time he refused to spec-
ulate as to what actions the coun-
ty will take. He said there were a
number of options available and
county staff would evaluate them
all.
The proposed OCSO budget
for the coming fiscal year is a 7.8
percent increase over the current
budget.
"The sheriff will not make any
cuts in the proposed budget, but
we,,are open to discussion with
the board," said OCSO Major
Noel Stephen.
Before the recent legislative
session, Sheriff Paul May pre-
dicted tax reforms would have a
drastic effect on the operation of
his office.

property located at 701 N.E. Third
St. which they are proposing to
be used as a fish house/market.
The property is located close to
Taylor Creek and is presently used
as a fish market, and has been for
over 30 years. The owner wish
to have the land use conform to
the use of the property. This issue
was brought up due 'to a visit by
the City Code Enforcement officer
Fred Sterling, who told the owner
they needed to obtain a business
license for the fish market.
In the process of trying to ob-
tain this license, they realized that
the previous owner had a letter
from the city attorney that al-
lowed for this use to continue in
the residentially-zoned property.
This letter, however, was tied to
the property owner and not the
property.
The board chose to postpone
the application in order to give
the applicant time to get with the
city attorney John Cook to see if
it is possible to fix this situation
administratively.

the city is developing a business
district around what used to be
residential and might be a little
short-sighted by trying to limit
commercial development to such
a small area. Too many new busi-
nesses are trying to remodel and
squeeze into old houses, which
are causing a lot of drainage and
other technical issues.
Although the board unani-
mously expressed a need for the
revisiting of the planning process
of where commercial and other
uses will be placed in the future,
the board voted 4-2 to recom-
mend that the City Council deny
the application.
Mr. Ledferd with Terry Bur-
roughs were in favor of the land
use change.
The City Council will consider
this application at their Tuesday,
July 3, meeting at City Hall.

e bill signed, Florida

e as national leader


Cybercrim

takes place
TALLAHASSEE, Attorney
General Bill McCollum thanked
Governor Charlie Crist for signing
into law the CyberCrimes Against
Children Act of 2007 (SB 1004), a
measure that substantially tough-
ens penalties for those who use
the internet to prey on children. As
a result, Florida is one of the na-
tional leaders with the some of the
toughest laws against child por-
nography and internet solicitation
of children. Additionally, Florida
is now the only state that specifi-
cally targets "grooming," which
occurs when the internet predator
lies about his age in order to break
down his victims' inhibitions.
e Gawda "Our CyberCrime Unit now
has the full support of some of
the toughest laws in the nation
as they work to keep our children
parent. safe from internet predators," said
Attorney General McCollum. "Not
only has Florida distinguished
itself with efforts to protect its
youngest citizens, but our state's
leadership has clearly demonstrat-
ed their commitment to enabling
our investigators and attorneys to
continue their fight against cyber-
crime."
Over the next 18 months, the
CyberCrime Unit plans to expand
throughout the state, opening new
offices in six additional cities. The
new enhanced penalties for inter-
net predators also include a new,
separate penalty against those
who communicate with a child
online and then travel to meet
that child for the specific purpose
of further sexually abusing him or
her. The designation of the new
crime has been hailed by law en-
forcement and prosecutors within
the state as the tools necessary to


that the new law will be helpful to
state prosecutors as they work to
protect Florida's children.
Speaking today at the annual
summer meeting of the National
Association of Attorneys General,
Attorney General McCollum re-
marked on the growing national
threat to the 40 state Attorneys
General in attendance, stressing
the importance of working on
a national level to combat inter-
net crimes against children and
emphasizing Florida's successes
in the legal fight against cyber-
crimes.

THE BIBLE IS GOD'S

LOVE LETTER -READ IT!

Okeechobee News/Pete Gawda

Good reading
Grace Christian Church reminds us that the Bible is written to us.

Reflections from the Pulpit


Reverend Jim Hudson
Pastor, His House Fellowship
Church of the Nazarene

Foundational Stones
of Fatherhood
In this present world of con-
fusion and misunderstanding of
role models for fathers, I believe
that God has given direction for all
fathers and grandfathers. The fol-
lowing is taken from the Father's
Day sermon at His House Fellow-
ship.
First Stone
Be a blood bought follower of
Jesus Christ.
The Bible tells us that fathers
are to be the spiritual leaders of
their home. They are to be the
role models and teachers for their
children. What the world needs
today are men that will stand up
for Christ and follow Him in total
obedience.
Second Stone
Be the spiritual leader and
teacher.
King Solomon wrote the Book
of Proverbs and gives instruc-
tions to his son. In chapter 1 and
verse 8 he states "My son, hear
the instruction of your father..."
and again in chapter 2 verse 1 he
writes these words, "My son, if
you receive my words, and trea-


sure my commands within you,
so that you incline your ear to
wisdom, and apply your heart to
understand... (Vs5) Then you will
understand the fear of the LORD,
and find the knowledge of God.
For the LORD gives wisdom; from
his mouth come knowledge and
understanding..."
Fathers, it is our job to listen to
the Heavenly Father's instructions
and to follow them daily and be
the example to our children and
grandchildren. We are to lead the
way...even when we do not feel
that things are going right or the
way we desire. We are to walk the
walk and talk the talk... because
our children are following in our
footsteps.
Third Stone
Be willing to allow the Heav-
enly Father to remold you.
In the Book of Jeremiah, chap-
ter 18 verses 1 through 6 we are
told, "The word which came to
Jeremiah from the LORD, say-
ing;' Arise and go down to the
,potter's house, and there I will
cause you to hear My words.'
Then I went down to the potter's
house, and there he was, making
something at the wheel. And the
vessel that he made of clay was
marred in the hand of the potter;
so he made it again into another.
vessel, as it seemed good to the
potter to make. Then the words of
the LORD came to me, saying; '0


b~wppbhlpis rwOWci


house of Israel, can I not do with
you as this potter?' says the LORD,
'Look, as the clay is in the potter's
hand, so are you in My hand..."
In the above passage the Lord
is speaking to the house of Israel,
however, I believe that He is also
speaking to us fathers and grandfa-
thers. We are to be willing to allow
our Heavenly Father to remake us
if He desires to do so. If He sees
something in us that needs to be
changed... allow Him to change
you to remold you.
Fourth Stone
Be willing to say, "I'm sorry" or
"I was wrong" or "Please forgive
me."
Men we are not always right
about everything and we need to
admit it. Our wives and children
need to hear these words coming
from our lips. Be a real man....
and say them... when you know
that you are wrong.
Fifth Stone
Be able to say, "I love you" and
once in a while use words!
Your wife and children need to
hear these words from your lips.
They do not need things as much
as they need you to show them
you love them. Hold your wife's
hand in public...give her a kiss in
front of the children... and always
tell your wife and children that you
love me. Again, once in a while use
words.

Senate OKs First Responder Appreciation Day Community Events


\V .].i-' ... D.C, In a bi-
partisan show of support for the
men and women of the emer-
gency services, the United States
Senate passed an FRC-conceived
resolution d. .i,: September
25th Nati, i ,,I i-i'l Responder
Appreciation Day. The resolution
(S.Res.215), introduced into the
Senate by Senator Wayne Allard
(CO), is cosponsored by over 30
Senators, including presidential
hopefuls John McCain (AZ) and
Hillary Rodham Clinton (NY).
Congress has seen fit to honor
pigs and popcorn, catfish and


ice cream with national days of
recognition, yet there is no na-
tional day to honor the heroic
firefighters, police officers and
emergency medical personnel
who protect our communities.
Since Decembdr 2006, the First
Response Coalition (FRC www.
FirstResponseCoalition.org) has
asked Congress to establish an
official day that recognizes first
responders for their sacrifices,
contributions and dedication to
public service. To date, over 5,000
people have signed the FRC's on-
line petition calling for a National


First Responder Appreciation Day.
Recently, the American Red Cross,
the Salvation Army, the National
Civic League and the Veterans of
"Foreign Wars have endorsed the
FRC campaign.
"The FRC would like to thank
Senator Allard for his leadership
on this issue. The FRC is very
pleased with the strong support
the Senate has shown for our first
responders, and the swift action
they have taken to help give our
heroes the national day of appre-
ciation and recognition that they
deserve," said Steven Jones, FRC


Executive Director. "I would like
to today call on the House of Rep-
resentatives to introduce a similar
resolution as soon as possible,
and ask President Bush to get his
pen ready to make National First
Responder Appreciation Day the
annual day of recognition that it
deserves to be."
Visit www.FirstResponseCoali-
tion.org to learn more about the
FRC's campaign for a National
First Responder Appreciation Day
and sign the FRC's petition to
Congress.

A Thought To
( Rememlibe
0,
The thinking of people is in a
constant evolutionary struggle.
The evolvement of higher ideals is
being brought forth in generation
after generation. For this, we are
thankful.
It was just a
hundred and
fifty years ago
that the
English
stopped exe-
cuting women
for "witch-
craft. More
than 300,000
yPaul women were
By Paul put to death in
Buxton England in a
period of 30
years -- their only crime was that
they were "witches."
A foolish pigactice? Yes, we all
agree! But at the time of the execu-
tions, people actually believed in
witches and wizards. There were
many who practiced the art of
witchcraft, and believed them-
selves to be witches.
What about a hundred years
from now? Will the things we
accept today as "human nature" be
in the dark ages of yesterday? Will
prejudices and hate someday go
the way of witchcraft? This, of
course, depends on us. We make
our world, we set the sail to our
destiny. Whether we know it or
not, we are doing just that every
day of our lives.

7 What do I n
todo. before making a

purchame of fer?
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 preds*, the price you can afford to pay for a home will depend on six factors:
1. your income;
2. the amount of cash you have available for the down payment, closing
costs and cash reserves required by the lender;
3. your outstanding debts;
4. your credit history;
5. the type of mortgage you select; and
6. current interest rates.
Lenders also analyze yourincome in relation to yourprojected cost ofhome own-
orship and outstanding debts to determine the size loan you can have.
Hymer says your housing expense-to-income ratio is determined by calculating
your projected monthly housing expense, which consists of the principal and inter-
ost payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
The surn of these costs is referred to as TITI. Monthly homeowners' association
duas, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage i
insurance are added to the PITT
Ybiir housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although sortie lenders will go higher under certain circumstances,
Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.
