Jones won't beput to death


Court overturns
death sentence
for convicted killer
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
While 28-year-old Christopher
Dale Jones, Jr., may die in prison
it won't be because he was put
to death by the state.
Jones received the death sen-
tence on Sept. 16, 2003, follow-
ing his conviction of first-degree
murder in the killing of 47-year-


old Hilario Dominguez onr Jl,
17, 2001.
However,
the Florida Su- o
preme Court
on Thursday,
July 12, over-
turned Jones'
death sen-
tence. The high
court ruled that
there was riot Chris

that the killing of Mr. Dominguez

the rest of his life in prison with-
out the possibility of parole.

for his part in the home invasion

Ellen Cuc, an apparent friend

corting to courtroom testimony,
she stayed in the car that night

Jones' girlfriend Ambria Ed-

the home of Mr. Dominguez.
Edmonds became a vital witness
for the state during Jones' trial.

When school begins on
Aug. 20 this year a number
of lucky students will be at-
tending a new charter school
at the Brighton Seminole
Indian Reservation called
the Pemayetv Emahakv,
which is Creek for "Our Way
School."
The new school will
house a maximum of 120
students in grades kinder-
garten through fifth.
The corporation that
owns the school is Pemay-
etv Emahakv, Inc. (PEI). The
corporation provided part of
the funding for the school,
while the state provided the
rest. PEI is a corporation set


up by the Seminole Tribe of
Florida to handle the school.
According to the school's
principal Russ Brown, there
are already 110 students pre-
registered. The school will
follow the rules of the Glades
County school system and
will operate by the Glades
County school system's cal-
endar, with the exception of
two Indian holidays.
In addition to the school
board-approved curriculum,
the community-based school
will teach the Creek culture
and Creek language. The
language class will be taught
one period a day, every day.
There will be an Indian cul-
ture class one day a week, as
* well as Indian arts and crafts


classes two days a week.
The students will be re-
quired to take physical edu-
cation classes every day and
will have a 90-minute read-
ing period each day. The
school will use the supple-
mental reading program
"Readright." Students will
also be required to take the
FCAT test each year.
The school will have 10
teachers and a teacher's
aide in every classroom.
The two kindergarten teach-
ers will be Melody Webber
and Michelle Coleman. The
first grade teacher will be
Cindy Ringstaff. Dixie Ball
will teach second grade.
Leslie Pryor and Lisa Cle-
ments will teach third grade.


Fourth grade will be taught
by Stephanie Tedders. Renea
Finney will teach fifth grade.
Ryan Tedders will be the spe-
cial education teacher. Pam
Matthews will teach physi-
cal education. The school's
guidance counselor will be
Jeanine Gran.
"We are very lucky to have
such outstanding teachers,"
said Mr. Brown. "They are
the cream of the crop."
Seminole Tribe students
have traditionally attended
public schools in Glades and
Okeechobee counties.

R.O.A.D. receives award



for exemplary service


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The non-profit organiza-
tion Rebuilding Okeechobee
After Disaster (R.O.A.D.) was
honored at the Governor's
Hurricane Conference in May
for their exemplary efforts in
helping citizens to recover after
the 2004-05 hurricane seasons
by administering funds from
the Florida Disaster Recovery
Fund.
According to a press release,
the Florida Disaster Recovery
Fund (formerly the Florida Hur-
ricane Relief Fund) was found-
ed in 2004 to provide assistance
to hurricane survivors for loss-
es not covered by immediate
recovery groups, insurance or
government funding.
This fund is managed by
non-profit Volunteer Florida


Foundation under the direc-
tion of Governor Charlie Crist.
In the 2004 and 2005 hurricane
seasons, the fund raised nearly
$24 million in private dona-
tions, granted to more than 300
non-profit agencies working in
recovery.
One of these nonprofit agen-
cies is R.O.A.D.
According to Jim Vensel,
the director for R.O.A.D. in
Okeechobee, in August of
2005 R.O.A.D. was organized
as a non-profit agency. They
were previously known as the
Unmet Needs of Okeechobee
Organization. Unmet Needs
eventually phased into another
unnamed group started by a
group of local ministers and
eventually became known as
R.O.A.D.
Throughout the following
two years R.O.A.D. was able


to assist countless families inr
building homes, purchasing,
mobile homes, repairing roofs
and interiors to bring back
hope to the victims of the hur-;
ricane disaster. r
R.O.A.D. provided resources
through various different sourc-
es of funding for hurricane vic-
tims including Volunteer Flor-
ida funds, Home Again loans
and other private organizations
such as ENCOR of the United
Methodist Church.
According to Mr. Vensel, the
United Methodist Church is re-
sponsible for allowing R.O.A.D.
to continue in operation pro-
viding funds of $80,000 to pay
the case manager supervisor
Julie Wazinek and casework-
er Christina Santibanez who
worked tirelessly to help fami-

Jones shot him once in the chest
with a .22 caliber revolver.

By Lorna Jablonski
Okeechobee News
Okee-Tantie Campground and
Marina will be one of the Florida
parks to benefit from Florida's
environmentally conscious bud-
Charlie Crist.
The budget included more
than $33 million to expand and
improve parks throughout the
state.
The program -- funded through
the Department of Environmental
Protection's (DEP) Florida Rec-
reation Development Assistance
Program (FRDAP) -- will send
$200,000 to Okeechobee County
for the renovation of picnic facili-
ties and camping at Okee-Tantie.
"The money will be used for
new picnic tables, fire rings and
benches," stated Darrell Enfinger,
director of Parks and Recreation
for Okeechobee County.
"'Setting aside recreational
green spaces within Florida's lo-
cal communities is imperative to
land conservation and essential
to creating strong communities,"
said DEP Secretary Michael W
Sole. "Florida Recreation De-
velopment Assistance Program
grants are an investment in the fu-
ture of Florida's natural resources
and in the state's citizens."
"Creating and enhancing local
park systems help produce active,
healthy lifestyles and strong fami-
lies in Florida's communities,"

Woman celebrates her 107th birthday Briefs


By Victoria Hannon
Okeechobee News
Beatrice Zanoth was joined
by 31 of the other residents at the
Okeechobee Health Care Facility
to celebrate her 107th birthday on
July 11.
Mrs. Zanoth was born in 1900
in Detroit, Mich., and later moved
to Florida where she resided in
Clewiston before becoming an
Okeechobee citizen. Until three
years ago, Mrs. Zanoth was liv-
ing by herself at home and would
make baked goods for her neigh-
bors.
During the party she reminisced
with Sandy Perry, the vice president
of the facility, about her past.
"He (her father) was a fireman
with one of those old horse-drawn
fire trucks," stated Mrs. Zanoth.
"He would take me up to the
second floor and we would slide
down the fire pole."
Before her retirement, Mrs. Za-
noth worked as a typist for General
Motors and enjoyed playing classi-
cal music on the piano. - .
Even at 107 she still attends all .. .

No La Vina, but active

hurricane season expected


By Rasha ladkour
MIAMI(A)-- The National Oce-
anic and At;iospheric Administra-
tion has predicted that La Nina -- a
cooling ofocean waters that gen-
erally brhgs a more active Atlantic
hurricane season -- will be absent
for the next two months.
Btt don't get rid of those disas-
ter kis just yet.
The absence of La Nina doesn't
necessarily herald a tame summer
fortropical storms and hurricanes,
said Dennis Feltgen, meteorolo-
gist and spokesman for NOAA in
Miami.
"There are so many other in-
gredients that contribute to the
development of tropical cyclones,
it's not just the fact that we don't
have a La Nina that comes into
play here,". Feltgen said...
Hurricane season 2005 was a
textbook example of this. La Nina
wasn't around, but the season
managed to break records, with
28 named storms, including 15
hurricanes, seven of which were
major.
La Nina is the counterpart
to the better known El Nino, a
warming of Pacific waters near
the equator that creates a less

Mike Bullock. "Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program
grants not only protect natural ar-
eas but attract people to recreate
the real Florida."
Okee-Tantie Campground and
Marina sits at the mouth of the
Kissimmee River, overlooking
Lake Okeechobee. It has been
the official weigh-in site for many
professional bass tournaments
for many years. The campground
originally held 271 recreational
vehicle sites. Due to severe dam-
age in 2004 by Hurricane Jeanne,
the campground now has 154
recreational vehicle sites.
The marina has 51 boat slips,


conducive environment for tropi-
cal cyclones in the Atlantic. These
duo water conditions are hard to
predict long-term and don't follow
regular patterns.
This year, forecasters have
predicted an above-average hur-
ricane season, which runs June
1 through November. They be-
lieve there will be 13 to 17 named
storms, with seven to 10 of them
becoming hurricanes and three to
five of those reaching at least Cat-
egory 3 strength.
Part of the reason behind this,
Feltgen said, is that we're in an ac-
tive hurricane cycle -- a phenom-
enon of heightened activity that
can last for decades. The last one
spanned the 1940s through 1960s.
The current one started in 1995
and could last for another decade,
Feltgen said.
"So all things being equal, we
expect an above average number
of cyclones," he added. "Be pre-
pared."
There have been two named
storms in 2007: Subtropical Storm
Andrea, which formed in May,
and Tropical Storm Barry, which
formed June 1, the first day of hur-
ricane season.


three boat ramps and a bait and
tackle shop that also serves as a
reservation desk and semi-conve-
nience store. There is also a fish-
cleaning facility next to the boat
slips. The facility also has a boat
ramp to the pond at the rear of
the property that is currently not
being used because of the low
water levels.
Okee-Tantie's open mead-
ows, tree-shaded picnic sites and
modern restroom facilities draw
a great many families for week-
end picnics, family reunions, bird
watching, fishing and just plain

Evidence against Padilla has been 'thin'

By Curt Anderson '. - I A LI .I D ,


MIAMI(AP)-- For a star de-
fendant whose name is known
around the world, Jose Padilla has
become almost a bit player in his
terrorism support trial -- and some
observers say the federal govern-
ment may not have proved its case
against him.
Prosecutors rested their case
Friday after nine weeks, 22 wit-
nesses and dozens of FBI wiretap
intercepts played at trial, most of
them in Arabic with written trans-
lations for jurors. Defense lawyers
for Padilla and his two co-defen-
dants begin presenting their case
next week.
Much is at stake for the gov-
ernment, which once heralded
Padilla's arrest as a success in the
country's war on terror, accused
him in an al-Qaida "dirty bomb"
plot, and held him for 3 1/2 years
as an enemy combatant.
Padilla's voice was heard on
only seven intercepts, a tiny frac-
tion of the 300,000 collected by the
FBI during the nearly decade-long
investigation.
Padilla was never linked to any
specific acts of terrorism or mur-
der and, unlike his co-defendants,
he was not accused of using pur-
ported code words like "tourism"
for "jihad" or "eggplant" for "rock-
et-propelled grenade."
"Although everyone has been
referring to this case as the Padilla
trial, the government's case against
Padilla has been pretty thin," said
David 0. Markus, a Miami defense
attorney who has frequently writ-
ten about the case on his legal
blog. "I'm sure the government
lawyers are sweating quite a bit
right now."
Padilla, a 36-year-old Muslim
convert, was arrested in 2002 as he
got off a plane in Chicago, return-
ing from Pakistan. He was carrying
$10,526, a cell phone and e-mail
addresses for al-Qaida operatives.
A month later, then-Attorney
General John Ashcroft interrupted
a trip to Moscow to announce the
arrest, saying Padilla was part of
an al-Qaida plot to set off a radio-
active "dirty bomb" in the United
States.
President Bush declared him
an enemy combatant and he was
held by the military for 3 1/2 years.
Just before the administration had
to justify that decision to the Su-
preme Court, he was transferred
to civilian custody and added in
late 2005 to the Miami terror sup-
port case
The "dirty bomb" allegations
were dropped and alleged admis-
sions Padilla made to interrogators
in a Navy brig during his confine-
ment have not been presented dur-
ing the trial. That's partly because
Padilla was not allowed to consult
an attorney during questioning,
but prosecutors also don't want
to discuss how Padilla was treated
at the brig. Padilla's lawyers have
said the conditions amounted to
torture.
The key to the case against Pa-
dilla, according to attorneys and
legal experts, is how much weight
jurors give to the five-page "mu-
jahedeen data form" he allegedly
filled out in July 2000 to attend an
al-Qaida training camp in Afghani-
stan. Seven of Padilla's fingerprints
are on the form, which was recov-

Jose Padilla, also known as
Abdullah al Muhajir, who was
arrested in an alleged plot
to spread radioactive mate-
rial across parts of America,
is shown in this undated file

or vague answers about his

agents in May 2002 shortly

ered by the CIA in Afghanistan in
December 2001.
"The question is whether the
defense has a plausible theory for
how Padilla's fingerprints got on
the form that doesn't implicate
him," said Stephen Vladeck, law
professor at American University
in Washington.
The form also serves to link Pa-
dilla co-defendants Adham Amin
Hassoun and Kifah Wael Jayybusi,
both 45, to al-Qaida. Most of the
other evidence and wiretap inter-
cepts concern actions Hassoun
and Jayyousi supposedly took to
benefit Islamic extremists in global
hotspots such as Chechnya, Soma-
lia, Kosovo and Lebanon.
There's little evidence link-
ing any of the three to specific
acts of violence but there are ties
to groups involved in Islamic ji-
had. For example, an associate of
Jayyousi's was killed in fighting in
Chechnya in 1995 and Jayyousi
once got a fax signed by al-Qaida
leader Osama bin Laden.
Former Miami U.S. Attorney
Guy Lewis said prosecutors often
are forced to present a "watered-
down" case when much evidence
.is classified to protect national
security. It's also a tougher case
when there's no "smoking gun" or
witness who can swear the defen-
dants committed illegal acts.
"It's a loose-knit conspiracy
with very few overt acts,". Lewis
said. "You didn't catch them com-
mitting a terrorist act. Talk only,
and talk is cheap."
The ominous presence of bin
Laden hovers over the trial, even
though U.S. District Judge Marcia
Cooke limited references to the
Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Ju-
rors were shown a 1997 CNN in-
terview in which bin Laden bitterly
denounced the U.S. and heard
Hassoun and Jayyousi discuss it
on telephone calls.

By The Associated Press
MIAMI(AP)- Here is a legal timeline of Jose Padilla since his arrest in May
2002 on suspicion of, involvement in an al-Qaida plot.
*May 8, 2002: Padilla arrives at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport from
Pakistan via Zurich, Switzerland, carrying $10,526, a cell phone and e-mail
addresses for al-Qaida operatives. He is arrested on a material witness .
warrant by the FBI and jailed in New York.;
*June 9, 2002: Padilla, a U.S. citizen, is designated as an "enemy combat-
ant" by President Bush and transferred to a Navy brig in Charleston. S.C
Then-Attorney General John Ashcroft. in news conference broadcast from
Moscow, discloses that Padilla is suspected of plotting to detonate a radio-
active "dirty bomb" in a U.S. city.
*Dec. 18, 2003: The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New York orders
Padilla released from military custody within 30 days and, if the govern-
ment chooses, tried in civilian courts That ruling is suspended after the
Bush administration appeals to the U.S. Supreme Court.
"March 3, 2004: Lawyers for Padilla meet with him for the first time since
his incarceration at the Navy brig.
June 1, 2004: The Justice Department releases details about alleged
admissions Padilla has made during interrogations aboul his involvement
with top al-Oaida leaders, including the "dirty bomb' proposal and another
purported plot to fill apartments in high-rise buildings with natural gas and.
detonate them using timers.
"June 28. 2004. In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court rules that Padilla
should have filed his appeal in federal court in South Carolina rather than
in New York
*Sept. 9, 2005: A panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court ol Appeals in
Richmond, Va., rules that the government can continue to hold Padilla
indefinitely.
*Oct. 25, 2005 Padilla appeals the 4th Circuit's decision to the Supreme
Court. The Bush administration's deadline for filing arguments is Nov. 28
*Nov. 22, 2005 Padilla is added to an existing indictment in Miami claim-
ing that he was part of a North American terror support cell that conspired
to "murder, kidnap and maim' people overseas The charges do not in-
clude any allegations of a "dirty Domb" plot or other plans for U.S. anacks.
*Dec. 21. 2005: 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge J. Michael Lutlig
chasises ihe administration for using one set of lacts to justify holding
Padilla without charges and another set to persuade a grand jury in Florida
to indict him. Luttig said the administration has risked its "credibility before
the courts."
*Jan. 4, 2006: Supreme Court agrees to let the military transfer Padilla to
Miami to10 face criminal charges, overruling the 4th Circuit
*Jan. 12, 2006 Padilla pleads not guilty in his lirst Miami federal court
appearance
"April 3. 2006: Supreme Court rejects Padilla s appeal, although Chief
Justice Jonn Roberts and other justices warn they will watch to make
sure Padilla receives the protections 'guaranteed to all federal criminal
defenoarits."
*April 16. 2007- Jury selection begins in the terror support and conspiracy
trial of Padilla and co-defendants Adham Amin Hassoun and Kfari Wael
Jayyousi All three face possible life in prison.
"July 13. 2007 After nine weeks of testimony and 22 witnesses, prosecu-
tors rest their case. Trial to continue the following week with defense case.


Padilla," Lewis said.
Through the trial, Padilla has
sat virtually motionless most days
at the defense table, flanked by
lawyers and watched closely by
U.S. marshals. He and Hassoun
have been in custody since their
2002 arrests, while Jayyousi is out
on bail and frequently engages
in conversation with lawyers and
journalists.
The three face life in prison if
convicted on all charges, which
include providing material sup-
port to terrorists and conspiracy to
murder, kidnap and maim people
overseas.
The defense says its case will
focus on expert witnesses who
can provide an alternate view of
history, Islamic principles and
global politics for the jury. The trial
is scheduled to continue into Au-
gust.
Defense lawyers have sug-
gested that Hassoun and Jayyousi
wanted to help oppressed and
persecuted Muslims with humani-
tarian aid. Any violence stemmed
from armed conflicts involving
competing forces rather than acts


of terror against innocents, they
say. They also contend that there
are many meanings for "jihad"
and "mujahedeen" among Mus-
lims, not all of them with violent
connotations.
Padilla's attorneys have said
he went to Egypt in 1998 to study
Islam more intently and hoped to
become an imam. Merely travel-
ing to places like Pakistan, they
say, isn't proof of ties to terrorism.
Jurors have sometimes shown
up for duty in coordinated cloth-
ing, most notably in rows of red,
white and blue before the July 4
holiday. That has prompted much
speculation among lawyers and
legal bloggers about whether they
are unified or sending a pro-gov-
ernment message.
"If everyone is thinking the
same way at such an early stage,
defense lawyers get nervous,"
Markus said. "Or the prosecution
could be nervous because this is
obviously a happy jury. Happy ju-
ries in a terrorism trial might not
be good."
Or, he added, they might sim-
ply be bored.

CAPE CORAL(AP)--A woman
was arrested after investigators
found she had failed to protect
her 3-year-old son from her boy-
friend, who has been charged
with the child's death, authori-
ties said.
Nicole Brewington, 32, was
arrested in Fort Myers on Thurs-
day and charged with first-de-
gree aggravated manslaughter.
Her boyfriend, Kashon Scott, 29,
is being held without bond in
the Lee County jail on charges of
second-degree murder and ag-
gravated child abuse.
Scott body-slammed Brew-
ington's son, Zahid Jones, on
May 28, police said. The next


morning, Brewington reportedly
called paramedics because the
boy had fainted after refusing
breakfast. Authorities said the
paramedics found Zahid soaking
wet, covered in bruises and un-
responsive.
Brewington had stood by as
Scott punched Zahid on at least
one occasion, according to De-
partment of Children &
Families reports.
Brewington is being held on
$50,000 bond. It was not imme-
diately known if Scott or Brew-
ington had legal representation.
DCF began investigating
Brewington in December 2006
after allegations surfaced that


she was beating Zahid because
he was hungry and crying. Zahid
and two siblings were removed
from Brewington's home March
7 after Scott allegedly sold drugs
to a police informant while the
children were inside. A judge
returned the children about a
month later, but barred Scott
from contacting the family.
Scott was reportedly wait-
ing when Brewington returned
home with the children, and
grabbed her by the throat and
threw her on a bed, authorities
said. Brewington called police,
but declined to press charges.
DCF defended Brewington's ac-
tions and chose not to remove


the children from her home.
Caseworkers failed to request
a background check on Scott -- a
violation of departmental policy
-- because his name was mis-
spelled and his birth date was
listed incorrectly in hundreds of
pages of documents.
DCF continues its investiga-
tion, but disciplinary action is
not likely to be taken against any
staffers involved in Zahid's case,
DCF Director of Operations Har-
ry Propper has said.
Brewington's two other chil-
dren have placed in protective
custody.


Former NY doctor pleads guilty in steroids case


By Eric Tucker
Associated Press Writer
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP)--A for-
mer doctor pleaded guilty Friday
to writing illicit steroid prescrip-
tions for people she never met or
examined as part of a business
that illegally distributed perfor-
mance-enhancing drugs to hun-


dreds of customers.
Ana Maria Santi became the
second doctor to plead guilty in
the federal investigation, which
also netted the owner of a phar-
maceutical company who hired
the doctors.
Santi, 68, of New York, wrote
an average of 100 prescriptions
a month at $25 apiece even

though she knew the drugs were
not being used for any legitimate
medical purpose. She signed the
prescription using the name of a
retired doctor in California since
her own medical license had
been revoked several years ear-
lier, prosecutors said.
Pharmaceutical company
owner Daniel McGlone agreed


this month to plead guilty in
the scheme. Prosecutors say
the New Jersey businessman
marketed anabolic steroids and
human growth hormone to
bodybuilders and other custom-
ers -- including some in Rhode
Island -- seeking to lose weight,
prevent hair loss, or stop the ef-
fects of aging.

IMPACT FEES: We went to the recent county commission meet-
ing on the 5-cents a gallon gas tax. Boy, did we get our eyes open
to the government for the people. People who wanted to give their
opinions were given three minutes to do so and all of those opinions
were factual, reasonable and community concerned. It was obvious
the commissioners came to the meeting with their minds already set
to enact the tax. What was very interesting was the information given
by the county attorney and the county administrator. It seems the rea-
son this had to be done so fast was that the prior 7-cent tax was about
to expire. But it seems what we thought, and so did everyone we have
talked to about this, that the impact fees recently put into place will
only pay 25 percent of the total amount needed for the improvements
needed because of future growth. Guess where the other 75 percent
will come from? Us, the community. We were led to believe that the
new homes/residents would pay for what was needed because of
their coming. This 5-cent additional tax on gasoline is to pay for this 75
percent of the amount. Nowhere in any of the articles did we hear that
the new impact fees were only a part of what is needed. I do believe
that the wool was gently pulled over this community's eyes. We had
better wake up, open our eyes and see what is really going on and
how our community government is really working. Be careful. They
do not tell all the details and/or important parts of their plans. I, for
one, do not wish to pay for new resident's impact on our resources
and facilities.
Editor's Note: It should be clarified here that in prior articles
printed in the Okeechobee News it was stated that impact fees will
only pay 25 percent of their impact on the infrastructure, and that the
remainder will have to be paid for by the county.

TURN LANES: I have noticed "Expect Delay Signs" between Popa-
sh Slough and S.W. 87th Terrace beginning July 16. Does anyone know
what type of road work will be done? I am hoping for turn lanes.
Editor's Note: The Florida Department of Transportation will be
installing turn lanes on S.R. 70.

ILLEGAL ALIENS: This is just a comment on the Speak Out in the
July 12 issue illegals. First of all, be realistic -- how are you going to
know who is illegal and who is not? Your idea is just going to cause
a lot of violence and more problems. That is not what this country
needs. So instead of going out and arresting illegal aliens why don't
you suggest arresting murderers, rapists and all the real criminals. My
co-worker and I are both citizens of the USA, but were once illegal and
all we want is to live a normal life, work hard and not be discriminated
against for having a different nationality.

THANKS: Thank you City of Okeechobee for fixing our flower
beds. We appreciate it.

CURFEW: If the gang problem continues to grow the city might
have to impose a curfew.

WRONG DATE: I was reading my Okeechobee News this morning
and I hope y'all are kidding on the back of it where it says it's July 2,
because I believe that today is July 12. Now I'm not positive, but that's
what I've been told and that's what my calendar says.
Editor's Note: You are making reference to an advertisement on
-+- the back page of the July 12 issue. After checking, it has been deter-
mined that the ad was submitted to us that way.

HEAT: There was a lady at a local business the other night with a
puppy in her truck. The window was rolled down about 5 inches and
the puppy got out. She proceeded to put it back in after somebody
called the sheriff's office. She left that puppy in there for over an hour
in this heat - this happened in the late after noon. She went out and
put it in another truck and somebody called the sheriff's office again.
I wish the deputy would have left her in a truck in the heat for a long
period of time, maybe she would have learned her lesson. I hope she
never gets married and has children.

SUGAR ANTS: I was wondering if anyone else had purchased any
diet or sugar free candy that was full of little sugar ants? Or, any un-
opened packages of sweet crackers that are full of sugar ants. If any-
one else has, I would like to know.

NOT RIGHT: I'm calling about the Speak Out that was in the pa-
per today about illegals. I don't think that it is right for you to be saying
that - everybody is human.

tion of the teams combined with
the professional instruction and
care given by all the staff at Les-

how successful even a small
town dance studio can be.
Some years ago Okeechobee
won a national rodeo rider com-

proved that being number one
is not impossible.


In closing we pay tribute to
everyone who has been con-

that Okeechobee is once again

Reflections from the Pulpit


Rev. Paul E. Jackson, Sr.
International Prayer Warriors
for Christ
About four years ago I sent
out this riddle to all my members
worldwide, and only a very few
ever figured out the answer to it.
Now the answer is not that hard,
but it does take reading your Bi-
ble and paying more attention to
what you are reading. For a lot of
people, it means to take the dust
off the Bible.
It's going to take some study-
ing in your bible to find the an-
swer, but it will be well worth it
in your own heart to know if you
did. If you think you have found
the answer, .send me an e-mail


or call me and leave a recording
(RDPEJS@earthlink.net 863-824-
0887) As long as you will leave
me a number or e-mail to get
back to you, then I will be happy
to call you to let you know if you
are right or wrong.
The Riddle
God made Adam out of the
dust, but thought it best to make
me first; so I was made before
the man, according to God's holy
plan.
My whole body God made
complete, without arms or hands
or feet. My ways and acts God
did control, but in my body He
placed no soul.


A living being I became, and
Adam gave to me a new name.
Then from his presence I with-
drew, for this man Adam I never
knew.
All my Maker's laws I do obey,
and from these laws I never stray.
Thousands of me go in fear, but
seldom on the earth appear.
Later, for a purpose God did
see, He placed a living soul in
me. But that soul of mine God
had to claim, and from me took
it back again.
And when this soul from me
had fled, I was the same as when
first made; without arms, legs,
feet or soul, I travel on from pole'
to pole.
My labors are from to day to


night, and to men I once fur-
nished light. Thousands of peo-
ple both young and old did by
my death bright lights behold.
No right or wrong can I con-
ceive; the Bible and its teachings
I can't believe. The fear of death
doesn't trouble me; pure happi-
ness I will never see.
And up in heaven I can never
go. Nor in the grave or hell be-
low. So get your Bible and read
with care; you'll find my name
recorded there.
WHO AM I?
The answer is one word. The
word is five letters long and will
only appear four times in the
King James Version of the Holy
Bible.

Christian frat sues UF
claiming discrimination
GAINESVILLE (AP) -- A Chris-
tian fraternity sued the University
of Florida on Tuesday, claiming
the university is discriminating
against them by refusing to rec-
ognize the fraternity as a regis-
tered student group.
University officials have told
Beta Upsilon Chi that it.can't be
registered on campus because
only men are allowed to join,
which amounts to prohibited sex
discrimination, according to the
lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court
in Gainesville.
Beta Upsilon Chi is not al-
lowed to join the off-campus
Greek system of fraternities and
sororities because the rules gov-
erning UF's Greek system bar
religious discrimination, accord-


ing to the lawsuit. The fraternity
requires its members to be Chris-
tians.
Without official recognition,
the fraternity is deprived of ben-
efits including access to meeting
space and the ability to advertise
and recruit members on campus,
the suit said:
UF spokesman Steve Orlando
said the university does not com-
ment on pending litigation.
The advocates who filed the
lawsuit, the Christian Legal So-,
ciety and the Alliance Defense
Fund, had sued the University of
Georgia in December because
the school wouldn't recognize a
chapter of the fraternity because
of the religious discrimination
issue. The suit was settled two
days later when the university
changed its policy and allowed
the fraternity to register.


Duke to spend $12M to
improve pastor health
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -- The
Duke Divinity School will use
a $12 million grant to assess,
track and improve the health of
United Methodist pastors across
North Carolina, the school said
Tuesday.
The Clergy Health Initiative,
using money from The Duke
Endowment, will provide health
counseling to about 1,600 Unit-
ed Methodist ministers for sev-
en years.
"Through this effort, we are
addressing both the health of


ministers, as well as their con-
gregations and communities,
by sharing strategies for main-
taining a healthy, balanced life,"
Duke University President Rich-
ard Brodhead said.
The initiative will recruit
more than two dozen health
coaches to help pastors im-
prove their diet and exercise,
and address smoking habits.
The school said many pastors
struggle with health problems,
such as obesity and depression.
The school said it hopes the
program will become a model
for health initiatives across the
country.

Former UF President Lombardi hired by LSU


BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -
- The board overseeing the LSU
System's 11 institutions voted
Friday to hire former University of
Florida President John Lombardi
as its new leader.
Lombardi, who served as UF's
president during from 1990 to
1999, was the outgoing chief of
the University of Massachusetts'
main campus.
Lombardi had been recom-
mended for the job last week by
an LSU search committee,
which praised his credentials
as an administrator and his out-


spoken style. Lombardi has said
he'll arrive at LSU this fall.
While at UF, Lombardi made
insensitive remarks about a black
administrator, calling him an
"Oreo." He also berated out-of-
state law deans hired to review le-
gal education at Florida and pub-
licly called plans by members of
the Board of Regents -- his bosses
-- "stupid."
But Lombardi, who took over
at UF before five students were
murdered in their off-campus
apartments in Gainesville by se-
rial killer Danny Rolling, was


No property taxcuts


for Panama City Beach


By Bill Kaczor
Associated Press Writer
PANAMA CITY BEACH (AP)
-- City Manager Richard Jackson
sympathizes with other local gov-
ernment officials across Florida
who are grappling with property
tax cuts ordered by the Legislature,
but he won't be joining them.
This booming resort city in the
Florida Panhandle, population
10,005, is the largest of at least 26
Florida cities and towns without a
municipal property tax. Only five
others have more than 1,000 resi-
dents.
The municipalities have had to
find different ways to pay for their
upkeep -- Panama City Beach has
a small tax on businesses' gross re-
ceipts, for example. Some depend
on utility taxes or other levies.
Most also have limited services
and rely on county governments
to fill the gaps, particularly for
law enforcement. As a result, the
no-tax towns also are feeling the
effects of the tax-cutting edict, at
least indirectly.
Panama City Beach is unique
among the tax-free group, relying
on a 1 percent gross receipts tax
that businesses pass on to con-
sumers -- in effect a sales tax.
"The merchants are very
prompt with their payments,"
Jackson said. "Nobody's com-
plained. I think most of them real-
ize it's either that or they're going
to pay property taxes."
Even Charlie Hilton, a lawyer,
hotelier and builder, isn't com-
plaining. He had challenged the
legality of the gross receipts tax in
.the 1980s.
ti "I prefer'a sales f;ax`oh any-
thing," said Hilton. He once
served on the board of a group
that wanted to abolish the federal.
income tax and replace it with a
national sales tax.
Hilton said he went to court
only because enforcement was
lax. He said he was among just a
few merchants paying the tax re-
quired to obtain and retain a city
business license.
"My position was that the city
had to have money to run and that
all of us ought to pay it," Hilton
said. "Get rid of it, or let's join in
and support it."
A local judge ruled against Hil-
ton, and he didn't appeal. Hilton
had argued that the Florida Consti-
tution reserved sales tax for state
use unless waived by the Legisla-
ture.

praised for his leadership during
the crisis. He also was praised for
his fundraising abilities, bringing
in $850 million during a capital
campaign.
The LSU system president is
responsible for a $3 billion an-
nual budget and institutions in-
cluding the main campus in Ba-
ton Rouge, the University of New
Orleans, medical schools in New
Orleans and Shreveport and char-
ity hospitals statewide.
Lombardi said his early prior-
ity will be developing relation-
ships with the lawmakers whose


support he'll need to fund the
system's institutions of medicine,
research and higher education.
Lombardi takes over from cur-
rent President William Jenkins,
who is retiring. Jenkins is paid
$373,000 per year, plus $30,000
for housing. Lombardi's salary
would be negotiable, said Charles
Zewe, a spokesman for the sys-
tem.
Lombardi made $343,772 in
fiscal year 2006-07 at Amherst,
plus a $24,067 supplement. He
lives for free on campus in the
chancellor's house.

The law later was changed to
prohibit such local taxes, but two
municipalities that already had
them _ Panama City Beach and
neighboring Panama City _ were
allowed to keep them. Panama
City, though, also levies property
tax.
Longtime Panama City Beach
resident Horace Crowson, 73,
said he, too, prefers the gross re-
ceipts tax.
"I know I'm paying 1 percent
on everything I spend here, but
I'd rather do it that way than have
a big property tax on me," said
the retired IBM technician.
Another reason local residents
aren't complaining is that hun-
dreds of thousands of visitors
who fill the city's hotels and con-
dominiums during spring break
and summer vacation months
pay most of the tax, Jackson said.'
Palm Shores, a Space Coast
town of 942, looks to a Brevard
County municipal services taxing
unit, which does levy a property
tax, to operate a sheriff's substa-
tion there.
"If you are cutting the sheriff's
budget, that is going to hurt us,"
said Mayor Carol McCormack.
"We're too small to have our own
police department."
Palm Shores also has a tax-
ing unit for fire protection, but
it charges a special assessment
rather than property tax. Nearby
Melbourne provides water and
sewer service.
McCormack said Palm Shores
relies on such sources as fran-
chise fees, taxes on utilities and
planning and zoning fees to pay
for road maintenance, code en-
forcement, a park and other ser-
vices. Officials are considering the
addition of impact fees on new
construction, but not a property
tax.



A Thought TO
Remember

Have you ever heard these
word? "The young are fearful that
youth will stay and the old are sor-
rowful that it went away."
How true! Sad, but true! To a
child, there is
almost a life-
time between
birthdays and
Christmas.
How rapid
time passes to
adults as com-
pared to time
lapses in
childhood.
By Paul The perspec-
Buxton tive of the
young is so dif-
ferent than of an adult. Return to a
scene of your childhood. Distances
between places hve surprisingly
been shortened. You look at it now
with the perspective of an adult
and no longer from the eye level of.
a child.
It is no wonder that at times we
fail to understand the action of
children. We stand three feet taller
and that changes many things.
When we become perplexed at
children, it is well to remind our-
selves of the vast differences in eye
level and thought level.
Thought to Remember: "If one
cannot understand, they will never
be understood."

Brent Sutter keeps an eye on Canada's junior hockey team in
Vancouver, British Columbia, in this Jan. 4, 2006 file photo.
Sutter was hired as the coach of the three-time Stanley Cup
champion New Jersey Devils on Friday, taking over one of the
NHL's least secure jobs.


Brent Sutter is



Devils new coach


By Tom Canavan
AP Sports Writer
NEWARK, N.J. (AP)-- Sutter
was hired as the coach of the
three-time Stanley Cup champion
New Jersey Devils on Friday, tak-
ing over one of the NHL's least
secure jobs.
The 45-year-old Sutter will be
the Devils' 14th coach in 26 sea-
sons in New Jersey, and he will try
next season to become the first to
finish a season since Pat Burns in
2003-04. Days later, cancer forced
Burns to step down.
After the 2004-05 lockout sea-
son, Larry Robinson lasted half a
season before resigning and be-
ing replaced by Devils president
and general manager Lou Lam-
oriello.
Claude Julien got the job last
summer and had the Devils in first
place with three games left in the
+ regular season when Lamoriello
fired him because he didn't like
the way the team was playing.
A two-time Stanley Cup win-
ner with the New York Islanders
in the 1980s and one of six broth-
ers to play in the NHL, Sutter has
never coached an NHL team. A
strong disciplinarian, he has had
success behind the bench.
"We are fortunate to have
someone with Brent Sutter's
character, knowledge, energy, en-
thusiasm and experience join our
organization," Lamoriello said
Friday. "He has been successful at
every level and we look forward
to him continuing that success in
the National Hockey League."
Sutter coached the Red Deer
Rebels -- a team he owns -- to a
Western Hockey League title in
2001. His stature as a top NHL
coaching prospect was signifi-
cantly enhanced when he guided
Canada to world junior gold in
2005 and 2006.
Sutter resigned as coach and
general manager of the Rebels on
Thursday, but he retained own-
ership of the team he bought in
1999.
Lamoriello wooed Sutter after
the 2005-06 season, but he opted
to remain at Red Deer in Alberta.
The Devils won the Atlantic
Division title this past season and
were eliminated in the second
round of the playoffs by the even-
tual Eastern Conference cham-
pion Ottawa Senators.
Sutter will take over a club
that lost two of its top players
to free agency in recent weeks.
Center Scott Gomez signed with
the cross-river rival New York
Rangers and three-time All-Star
defenseman Brian Rafalski signed
with Detroit. Both players were
members of the Devils' Stanley
Cup championship teams in 2000
and 2003. New Jersey won its first
Cup in 1995.
Sutter will also face the pros-
pect of coaching his first nine
games on the road next season.
The Devils are moving into the
new Prudential Center in the
state's largest city after playing at
the Continental Airlines Arena in
East Rutherford, N.J. for the past
25 years.
The new building is in its final
stages of construction and the
Devils scheduled a long road trip
to open the season to avoid a pos-
sible problem.
Sutter's brothers Darryl, Brian

and Duane all were NHL head
coaches.
Brian, who will be replacing
Brent in Red Deer, coached at
Chicago, Calgary, Boston and St.
Louis. Darryl coached Chicago,
San Jose and Calgary before be-
coming the Flames' general man-
ager. Duane coached at Florida.

JACKSONVILLE (AP) -- Jack-
sonville Jaguars offensive tackle
Khalif Barnes has been sen-
tenced to six months probation
after pleading no contest to a
drunken driving charge.
Barnes has also apologized
for calling the police officer a
racist during his Nov. 10 arrest.
Barnes was caught on police
video calling Officer D. E. Cullen
a "KKK devil who hates all col-
ored people" and accusing him
of targeting Jaguars players.
"The stress of the situation
led me to say things which I do
not believe. I want you to know
that was out of character for
me," Barnes said in a letter to
Cullen. "You were just trying to
do your job that night, and I am
sorry for the things I said to you.
I know you have a hard job."
Barnes was driving his 2007
silver Mercedes 101 mph in a 60-
mph zone, police said. He was
arrested after failing a field so-

Even before starling 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:






* Lenders also analyze your income in relation to yourprojected cost of home own-
ership 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-
est payment on your new home loan, property taxes and hazard insurance.
* The sum of these costs is referred to as "PITI." Monthly homeowners' association
dues, if you're purchasing a condominium or townhouse, and private mortgage
insurance are added to the PITi.
- Your housing expense-to-income ratio should fall in the 28 to 33 percent range,
although some lenders will go higher under certain circumstances.

* Your total debt-to-income ratio should be in the 34 to 38 percent range.

ous or malicious writing about
the United States government.
In 1853, Commodore Matthew
Perry relayed to Japanese officials

The Last Word in Astrology


By Eugenia Last i
*ARIES (March 21-April 19): As
long as you don't let people annoy you,
much can be accomplished. A social
event will give you greater perspec-
tive on what you need to do to further
your ideas and talent. An opportunity to
make an investment will arise.
*TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Take
a look at what it is you want to change
at home and start the process. You can
turn things around personally, physi-
cally and emotionally by making a few
positive choices. Talks will bring about
a new lifestyle that suits you better.
*GEMINI (May 21-June 20):
You may want to put in a few hours on
something that can help you prosper
professionally. It isn't all play today, so
set yourself up to network with people
who can help you get ahead. Mix busi-
ness with pleasure.
*CANCER (June 21-July 22):
You may be questioning a lot of things
in your life, love and future. Don't act
on emotional impulses. Change is good
and can bring about results that will
help to format your future positively.


*LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Look,
listen and contemplate but don't be
too quick to jump into something with
both feet. Money is heading your way
but you have to be smart about the way
you handle your good fortune. Trust
someone who has more experience.
*VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You
have to get involved in a fundraiser or
offer your services to a group that you
know can do for you in return. Travel,
trade shows and any other means that
will expand your mind, your interests
and your friendships should be slated
in.
. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You
may be asked to put in extra hours but
this will lead to dissatisfaction, so do
what you can to complete the work
and get on with the fun things you
want to do. A short trip will lead to love
and adventure.
*SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21):
Everything looks very promising, in-
deed. Talks, negotiations and getting
people to envision what you are work-
ing on will be a piece of cake. Don't sell
yourself short.


*SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.
21): Money matters will escalate and
must be handled with discretion and
common sense. Don't let love lead you
down the wrong path. Legal and finan-
cial matters can work out in your favor.
*CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19):
You can mix business with pleasure and
win today. An important partnership
will develop and grow with a little nur-
turing on your part. Money can be made
and a change in your financial situation
will open doors to something you have
wanted for some time.
-AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A
chance to make a difference to some-
one in your life will show that you ap-
preciate all that this person has done
for you. It may be hard for you to take
a much-needed step into mainstream
living but an opportunity to do so must
be taken.
*PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You
can discuss future plans with the people
who mean the most to you and make
some headway but don't expect them to
totally agree. Be willing to compromise
- the changes will be spectacular.

Dear Abby


Hubby showing


old drinking habits


*DEAR ABBY: My husband,
"Greg," and I have been mar-
ried six years. When we first met,
he drank every weekend. He
wouldn't come home after work
or even call me. He has come a
long way since then.
Greg now calls me from work
to see if I "mind" if he goes out
with his buddies for "a few"
beers. (I don't mind.) All I ask is
that he come home when the bar
closes. Greg promises he will, but
he never follows through. He ei-
ther goes out for breakfast or over
to a friend's house. He usually
doesn't make it home until 6:00
a.m., and by then I'm furious.
Greg is 36 and I am 29. We
have a beautiful 5-year-old
daughter. Is it too much to ask
that a married man come home
instead of staying out all night
with his single friends? We fight
constantly over this. (He accuses
me of "nagging.")
One night he was out with
my brother, "James." James was
home by 3:00 a.m. Greg came
strolling in at 6:00 and claimed
he had "no idea" where he had
been for the last three hours. Am
I naive to think he wasn't doing
anything wrong? Please help me.
I don't know how much more I
can take. When Greg starts drink-
ing, he can't stop. But he only
drinks once a month now. Is
that an alcoholic? - End Of My
Rope In Cleveland
DEAR "END": Your husband
may binge only once a month,
but he is showing at least four
classic signs of being an alcohol-
ic. He is unable to stop drinking
once he starts; he is having trou-
ble remembering where he was
the next morning; it is causing
problems in his home life; and
he wishes someone (you) would
stop nagging him about his drink-
ing.
Alcoholics Anonymous could
help him, but only if he is willing
to admit he has a problem and
seek help for it. Al-Anon could
Close to Home


give you valuable insight about
what is going on in your marriage
and how to handle it. (The mem-
bers of this group are all men
and women who share their own
personal experiences in deal-
ing with an alcoholic in order to
help one another cope with their
problems.) You will find it listed
in your phone directory.
P.S. Because your husband
can't remember where he is
spending the night when he's
out drinking, it might be wise to
talk to your doctor and ask to be
tested for STDs. A word to the
wise...
*DEAR ABBY: I may be alone
in my thoughts on this subject,
but I feel that addressing a wom-
an as "ma'am" is an extremely
derogatory term. I believe it is a
derivative of "mammy" and sim-
ply a way of keeping a woman in
her place.
How would any man like to be
called "geezer" or "old goat" on
a regular basis? I regard "ma'am"
in the same negative light.
How can I politely, yet firmly,
respond to those who persist in
their rude behavior when I am
called "ma'am?"
- Definitely not your
ma'am in South Carolina
DEAR DEFINITELY NOT:
You must be a recent transplant
to the South, because south of
the Mason-Dixon (and also in the
military), to address a woman as
"ma'am" shows respect. I don't
know where you got the idea that
"ma'am" is a derivative of "mam-
my," but it's a huge mistake, and
I hope you haven't said it to any-
one else.
"Ma'am" is a contraction of
the word "madam," a form of
respectful address to an adult
- usually married - woman.
If you prefer to be called some-
thing else, ask the person to call
you "Lisa," "Ms. Jones," etc. But
please don't pick a fight, or you
will look foolish.

Industries discovered a way to lace Mr. Lufner's
coffee with a solid form of nitrous oxide.
