Legislative
delegation meets
Christmas will come late this
year for local civic leaders. Nor-
mally in December local leaders
meet with the county's legisla-
tive delegation to present wish
lists of funding for their particu-
lar projects. The Okeechobee
County Delegation will meet at
1:45 p.m. today in the Okeecho-
bee County Health Department
Auditorium, 1728 N.W Ninth
Ave. Time permitting, there will
be public comment.

County to revisit
employee pay raises
The Okeechobee County
Commission will meet at 9
a.m. Thursday, Jan. 22 in the
Okeechobee County Health
Department Auditorium, 1728
N.W Ninth Ave.
Okeechobee County Com-
missioners will consider replac-
ing a very outdated radio sys
tem.
They will also consider sup-
porting the merger of South
Florida and St. John Rivers Wa-
ter Management District, look at
funding options for a new jail
and look at the employee pay
system.
Turning to the proposed new
jail, the board will be requested
to advertise for a request for in-
formation to solicit information
about construction financing
that may be used to develop a
request for proposal. It is not a
request for bids.
In light of the budget crunch,
the board will once again look
at salaries for county employ-
ees. At their last meeting the
board voted to retain the three
percent pay increase for county
employees below department
heads and lieutenants in the
sheriff's office. Tomorrow the
board will consider how to ap-
ply this three percent increase
to the minimum and maximum
rates for each pay grade.
At 11 a.m. the board has
scheduled an executive session
to discuss pending litigation
with American Drilling Services.

home is lost



to flames


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
An estimated $250,000 in
property damage was done Fri-
day evening after a fire broke
out at a two story residence in
the area of Starnes Loop and
Spot in the Sun, Okeechobee
County Fire Rescue reported.
Fourteen firemen from
Okeechobee County and the
Okeechobee City Fire Depart-
ment, along with five units,
arrived at the Gloria Vanderau
residence at 2328 N.E. 103rd
Avenue, just after 6 p.m. and
found flames and smoke
shooting out of the second
story of the home. The flames
had already vented through the


windows and the roof of the
home.
Several attacks were made
on the fire and it was brought
under control within 30 min-
utes, a fire report from Para-
medic Zack Smith stated.
The report said $50,000 in
family possessions inside the
home were lost. The structure
was ruled a total loss. It was
valued at $200,000.
Fire reports said some up-
holstery appeared to have
caught fire and the blaze spread
quickly throughout the home.
Firemen said there were nc
injuries. Firemen were on the
scene for approximately three
hours.

Battle of Okeechobee re-enactment planned


Once again, the Battle Of
Okeechobee re-enactment of the
Second Seminole War will return
at the newly created Okeechobee
Battlefield Historic State Park in
Okeechobee County on Saturday,
Jan. 31, and Feb. 1. The re-enact-
ment of 2008 drew large crowds.


The Okeechobee Battlefield
Friends, Inc. is coordinating the
upcoming event. Gates are open
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days
and re-enactments will also be
held both days; Saturday, Jan. 31,
at 2 p.m., and Sunday, Feb. 1, at 1
p.m. Admission is $5 per car.


Prior to battle re-enactment
on both days, the Florida National
Guard, Seminole Battalion's Color
Guard, 2/124 Infantry Battalion
and the Seminole Tribe of Florida's
Color Guard will be presenting the
Colors. A veterans' honor song will
be performed by William Cypress,
Seminole Tribal Member. The dra
matic battle will be narrated by
John Missall.
This historic battle, fought on
Christmas Day in 1837 was the


fiercest battle of the Second Semi-
nole War. A talented cast of re
enactors will portray fierce Indian
warriors such as the great Indian
war leaders, Abiaca, Coacoochee,
Halleck-Tustenuggee and Alliga-
tor. As the drama unfolds, it shows
how the Seminoles, greatly out-
numbered, battled the massive
militia and U.S. Army troops led by
Colonel Zachary Taylor and Colo-
nel Richard Gentry of the Missouri
Volunteers.


The Okeechobee Battlefield
Historic State Park is located at
38th Avenue, on what was once
cattle range and is not yet officially
open to the public as the grounds
are in early stages of the planning
and development process. The
battlefied site is 3500 S.E. 38th Av-
enue, off U.S. Highway 441 S.E.A


This event is sponsored b3

Teen charged


with assault


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A 14-year-old girl was arrested
after she allegedly tried to cut her
brother with a butcher knife dur-
ing an argument about using a
microwave oven.
Kadija D. Collins, N.E. 13th
Ave., was arrested Saturday, Jan.
17, on a felony charge of aggra-
vated assault with a deadly weap-
on. She was also charged with do-
mestic battery, a
misdemeanor.
After she was



booked into the
Okeechobee
County Jail, Col-
lins was taken to
the Department
of Juvenile Jus
twice Detention
Center in Fortan i
Pierce. Kadija D.
Deputy Jus Collins
tin Akins, of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of
fice (OCSO), said the argument
apparently began sometime
around 3 a.m. Saturday when the
girl's 18-year-old brother tried to
put some food in the microwave.
According to the deputy's re
port, Collins then pushed him out
of the way then came at him with
a knife and tried to cut him. He
then grabbed her and the siblings
scuffled for a few minutes before
their mother interceded.
The brother, stated Deputy
Akins, then went outside. Then
after a few minutes had passed,
Collins went outside and began to
yell at her brother and tried again
to cut him, stated the deputy's re-
port. But this time, continued the
report, Deputy Akins was watch-
ing.
In his report, the deputy heard
Collins tell her brother that she
was going to cut him and that she
didn't care who was watching. At
the time, the teenager was hold-
ing a knife above her head and in
her left hand, the report stated.

SS cards


Deputy Akins shined his flash
light on the girl and she then went
inside the home. The deputy fol
lowed and placed her under ar-
rest.
Deputy Akins' report indicates
that the brother received an injury
to his arm, but does not state the
severity of the injury.


Man charged with hitting dad


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A man was arrested after he
allegedly bloodied his father's
nose after the father refused to
take him to Kentucky.
David Wade Wyrick, 44, West
Highway 92, Monticello, Ky., was
arrested Saturday, Jan. 17, and
charged with the felony of bat-
tery on a person over 65 years
of age. Wyrick was booked into


the Okeecho-
bee County Jail
under a bond of
$30,000.
An arrest re-
port by Deputy
Donald Ellis of
the Okeecho-
bee County
Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) states


David Wade
Wyrick


that he went to the home of
Wyrick's father around 11 p.m.


Friday, Jan. 16. The deputy said
the 69-year-old man had obvi-
ously been hit because he had
dried blood under his nose. The
man was also visibly upset.
The man reportedly said he
and his son, David Wyrick, had
an argument because he would
not take his son back to the Blue-
grass State.
According to the report, the
argument escalated to the point
that Wyrick threw water on his


dad. At that point, the man struck
his son. Wyrick then retaliated
by hitting his dad in the nose,
on both sides of his face and in
the ribs, Deputy Ellis stated in his
report.
When the OCSO deputy ar
rived at the home, Wyrick was
gone.
Wyrick was arrested shortly
after 2 a.m. on Saturday when
Deputy Ellis was sent back to the
residence.

Abdiel Flores Anastac
Ramirez
By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A state investigation into the
use of bogus Social Security cards
has led to the arrests of two area
men who were working in the
construction industry.
Abdiel Flores, 24, and Anas-
tacio Ramirez, 30, were both
arrested last week by Detective
William Hill from the state's De-
partment of Financial Services -
ivision of Insurance Fraud. The
two men were each charged with
the felony of submitting a fraudu-
lent Social Security number for
employment.
Flores and Ramirez were
booked into the Okeechobee
County Jail Thursday, Jan. 15, un
der a bond of $1,500 each.
Detective Hill said the two men
were working as laborers for a lo-
cal construction company at the
time of their arrest.
"The numbers they were using
were not issued by the Social Se-
curity Administration," explained
Detective Hill. "We still have a
current investigation going on in
the area. We're still active y seek-
ing out the fraudulent manufac
ture of these cards."
The latest arrests are part of a
state investigation that led to the
Oct. 30, 200, arrests of four local
women who were charged with
using bogus Social Secunty cards
in order to gain employment
here. The four women were all
working as housekeepers at local
motels.
"This was kind of a spin-off
case from a workman's compen-
sation claim," said Detective Hill
of the October arrests. "Unfortu-
nately, the people we're arrest-
ing are also the victims. They got
caught up in a vicious cycle.
Although all of the arrests stem
from the same investigation, the
Jan. 15, 2009, arrests involve a dif-
ferent company.
Of the latest arrests, Detec-
tive Hill said it's not known yet
if Flores and Ramirez are in the
United States illegally. He did add,
however, that neither man had a
valid Florida driver's license when
interviewed at the time of their ar-
rest.
Arrested in October were Ma-
ria Udave, Martha Romero, Ve-
ronica Mojica and Yolanda Rob-
ledo. They were all charged with
submitting a fraudulent Social Se-
curity number for employment.
The women were apparently
working here and sending money
back to family members in their
homeland. According to arrest re-
ports Udave, Romero and Mojica
are citizens of Mexico.
Detective Hill said all four
women are in the U.S. illegally.
"Most have been here for a I
number of years," he said, in an
interview shortly after those ar-
rests were made. "One had been
here for about nine years."

Speak Out/Public Forum
Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and
easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. What follows is a sam-
pling of some of the discussions currently taking place.
Thanks for participating!
State law
TOO LOUD: I hear it time and time again, that thumping of car
radios. So loud it makes my neighbors' dogs bark and howl. Sitting
in traffic, the same thing. Sitting on my own front porch you can hear
them coming from the corner, can't even sit outside and enjoy the
view, fresh air for listening to this crap they call music! Says straight
up that the state law says and I quote; "There is a law restricting the
volume of automobile stereos. Any music audible 25 ft away or more
is too LOUD, and the driver can be fined a mere $68.50. The POUND-
ING bass noise decreases driver's ability to hear pedestrians and oth-
er vehicles near them." So why isn't the law doing something about
this? I know they hear that so-called music too. Why don't they start
handing out the big $68.50 tickets. This is total disrespect for all. I
don't care what kind of music you choose to listen too, but I definitely
don't want to hear yours. When you drive into a small trailer park or
a small subdivision, or the Wal-Mart parking lot for that matter, have
the courtesy to lower the volume. When you're sitting at a light and
the music is pumping so loud the windows are vibrating, lower that
volume. You might have to listen for EMS or the Fire Department. It
might save your life and mine too! Next question, when are the police
going to start enforcing this law? When someone gets hurt or dies?
COMPLAINT: I wonder if it's a deal where someone has to make
a complaint first. Maybe we should try to get their license plate num-
ber and report it. I cannot understand, either, why the law, suppos-
edly knowing the law, will not enforce it on their own.
ENFORCEMENT: I agree, but there are a lot of Laws that are not
enforced. Like the Bumper Law for the average truck for a max 22
inch and then there are: It is illegal to skateboard without a license. It
is illegal for Unmarried women to parachute on Sundays. It is illegal
for women to fall asleep under a hair dryer. It is illegal for Men to be
seen publicly in any kind of strapless gown. It is illegal to have sexual
relations with a porcupine. It is illegal to release gas in a public place
after 6 p.m on Thursdays. If an elephant is left tied to a parking meter,
the parking fee has to be paid just as it would for a vehicle.
COPS MUST BE THERE: the problem is that the noise ordinance
is just that; it is a civil infraction and must occur within the Officer's
presence. Chances are the offenders know this and are able to see the
"star cars" coming and turn their volume down before getting caught.
As far a getting a license plate number, yes that may help but you will
still have the same problem. It did not occur in the Officer's pres-
ence and it would be up to the complainant to follow through. The
complainant would have to go to the State Attorney's Office to file a
complaint ... but the only thing that is going to happen is possibly an
order to show cause. Months to get on the docket ... And the com-
plainant is wore out just trying to get it enforced. It is an ordinance/
law with itsy-bitsy teeth.
TICKETS: If an officer hears it, I think they should ticket the of-
fender. But I don't think it is serious enough that someone should call
in a license number, have law enforcement look up the owner on the
computer, send someone out to investigate, etc, etc, etc. They have
more important things to do to keep us SAFE, rather than send out the
Mounties to keep us more comfortable at red lights.

Unemployment is up; the stock market is down
INAUGURATION COST: In 2005, Reps. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y,
and Jim McDermott, D-Wash., asked Mr. Bush to show a little less
pomp and be a little more circumspect at his party. The thinking was
that, with the nation at war, excessive celebration was inappropriate.
The price tag for President-elect Barack Obama's inauguration gala is
expected to break records, with some estimates reaching as high as
$150 million. Obama's inauguration committee says it is mindful of
the times and is not worried people will see the four days of festivi-
ties as excessive. I'm not sure what "level" of society YOU live at, but
$150 million for one event seems to be excessive to me. What could
$150 million do for say, the education system, for welfare or for the
needy?
WAR: How much has this senseless war cost us that put us in this
position in the first place?? Trillions?
BUSH: Obama's numbers will not differ greatly from Bush's which
is what people are saying. Yes it can be more, but it is not an unheard
of number.
PARTY: Give the man his due. He's done something incredible by
just being elected. The adversity he's faced, and to overcome that and
obtain the highest office in the United States ... he deserves a party or
two or three.

What is an internet troll?
TOYS: About 50 years ago they had these little troll dolls with a
hollow head and green hair glued in them. Why any kid ever wanted
one I never could understand.
TROUBLEMAKER: An "Internet Troll" is someone who posts
controversial, inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic messages in an
online community. Now, who gets to decide what is controversial,
inflammatory, irrelevant or off-topic? The starter of a thread has an
expectation for the path it "should" take, however all threads have
a certain amount of "meandering." If the thread is one of controver-
sial or inflammatory nature, you may be sure that those will be re-
acted to quicker. Usually in the form of obfuscation and or "labeling"
However, "trolling" is usually easy to identify. Name calling, labeling,
CAPITAL LETTERING (which is usually referred to as shouting) can
be dead giveaways.

COURTESY: I drove a good friend of mine all the way from here
in Okeechobee to a doctor on the coast. As we're driving, she gets
on her phone and starts making numerous phone calls. To me that
was also very distracting from hearing the conversation and all this. I
thought to myself, "if I'm nice enough to drive you because you can't
drive yourself to the doctor, can't you be nice enough to stay off that
darn phone?"
ATTENTION: People who talk on cell phones while driving often
do not pay enough attention to their driving. When I am stopped at
red light and it turns green, and the person in front of me just sits
there and doesn't go. And then finally when everyone else is blaring
the horn, the driver finally realizes the light has changed and goes,
but because of the delay only that one car can get through the inter-
section because the light is already changing again -- invariably that
inconsiderate driver is on a cell phone.
EMERGENCIES: The one time when it should be allowed to use
a cell phone in a car is when there is an emergency. I have called in
to report accidents, cows running loose on the highway and danger-
ous drivers like the guy swerving all over the road or the truck driver
losing half his load of shell on the road. Cell phones can be a great
emergency tool. But save the non-emergency chit-chat for when you
are not driving.

Should elected officials take drug tests?
DRUG TESTS: I was just wondering, for me to go get a job, I
have to submit myself to a drug test. And I was wondering why in this
country, if we have to do that how come our congressman, senators,
presidential candidates, presidents and all of the people who run this
country don't have to take a drug test every month to stay in office.
I'm not a drug user either, but think about it people."
FAIR: I think all elected officials should be willing to submit to
random drug testing. They do this to our military service members.
Congressmen and senators should have to submit to drug testing as
should all government officials. It's only fair. We, the taxpayers, are
their boss. It's our money that pays their salaries.
TEST THEM: I completely agree the elected officials should have
to take drug tests. Considering some of the legislation they approve
vou have to wonder if they are on something.


The Counseling Corner


Resolve to make
better resolutions

By the American
Counseling Association
Want to make some resolu-
tions this year that you actually
might keep? It really isn't that dif-
ficult and it pays benefits. Reso-
lutions usually mean positive
changes, and well-made resolu-
tions help avoid the problems
that come with poor resolutions
quickly broken.
While a broken New Year's
resolution might not seem very
important, for some people it
actually can be. From a mental
health perspective, broken reso-
lutions are sometimes harmful
because they can have us see-
ing ourselves as failures, falling
short of our goals. A broken New
Year's resolution is another ex-
ample of how weak we are, help-
ing to erode self-confidence and
self-esteem.
That doesn't mean you
shouldn't make New Year's reso-
lutions. They offer a wonderful
opportunity to examine where
you are and to set goals for the
things you'd like to change.
The most important element
for good resolutions is to make
them realistic. You're not going to
lose 25 pounds by the end of Jan-
uary or immediately look like an
Olympic athlete if it's been years
since you've been near the gym.
One way to make success-
ful resolutions is to set realistic
mileposts. That means breaking
big tasks into smaller, more man-
ageable units. If you're resolving
to lose weight, forget the num-
ber of pounds you want to shed
and instead focus on moving to


a healthier diet that will natu-
rally lead to weight loss. Maybe
your first mini-goal is to cut out
one high calorie food each day
or week and to replace it with a
healthier fruit or vegetable.
If your resolution is to exercise
more, start slowly with an initial
goal, say walking 15 minutes
each day, that you know you can
achieve. Similarly, if it's smoking
that you want to stop, maybe
your first goal is to cut by 10% the
number of cigarettes you smoke
each day, or to contact your doc-
tor or local hospital to learn about
smoking cessation programs and
stop-smoking aids.
When you create realistic
resolutions with attainable mini-
goals, what you're really doing is
developing a plan to reach your
final goal. Attainable mini-goals
toward that bigger overall tar-
get are a way to ensure success,
to focus on positive behavioral
changes and to feel good about
the successes you're achieving.
This all adds up to positive rein-
forcement that will help keep you
going and increase your chances
for successfully fulfilling that reso-
lution.

Adams faces additional burglary charges


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Even more charges have been
filed against an Okeechobee man
who is already in jail after being
arrested in November 2008 on
armed burglary and grand theft
charges.
Detective Rick Durfee of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of-
fice arrested Jason Thomas Ad-
ams Thursday, Jan. 15, on charg-
es of burglary and grand theft. His
bond was set at $15,000.
Adams, 25, was originally ar-
rested on Nov. 25, 2008, for his


alleged connection with the bur-
glary of a 79-year-old woman's
home.
Adams, N.W ,
Fourth Ave., was
charged in that
November ar-
rest with grand
theft, criminal '
mischief over
$1,000, aggravat-
ed assault with a Jason
motor vehicle Thomas
and armed bur- Adams
glary. His bond on those charges
was set at $136,000.
Also arrested in that case was


Jennifer Kristine Conner, 24. Con-
ner, of the same address, was
charged with grand theft and
armed burglary. Her bond was
set at $110,000.
On Jan. 7, 2009, Adams was ar-
rested on an Okeechobee County
warrant while locked up in the
Okeechobee County Jail. That
warrant charged him with dealing
in stolen property (two counts)
and giving false information to
a pawnbroker (two counts). His
bond on those charges was set at
$25,000.
The latest charges on Adams
stem from an Oct. 7, 2008, bur-


glary in which he is accused of
taking a laptop computer, a gui-
tar, a cordless drill and about $100
in change. The items, stated De-
tective Durfee, had an estimated
value of $325.
Detective Durfee stated in his
arrest report that Adams appar-
ently gained entry into the vic-
tim's home by prying open the
back door.
On Nov. 25, 2008, Detective
Durfee, along with fellow OCSO
detectives Bryan Lowe and Ted
Van Deman, executed a search
warrant on the residence where
Adams lived. Detective Van De-


Teen accused of kicking officer in head


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An 18-year-old man being
held at the Level 10 Juvenile De-
tention Facility was arrested after
he kicked a staff member in the
head.
Jorge Luis Nodal was arrested
Tuesday, Jan. 13, and charged
with the felony of battery on de-
tention staff. He was booked into


the Okeechobee
County Jail un-
der a bond of
$2,500.
According to
an arrest report
by Deputy Jason
Hickman, of the
Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Jorge Luis
Office (OCSO), Nodal
Nodal became


aggressive when a staff member
entered his cell to take down a
shirt Nodal had placed over the
window in his cell door.
When staff member Jose Diaz,
31, entered the cell Nodal report-
edly became aggressive. At this
point, continued the report, staff
member Michael B. Durham, 25,
entered the cell to help Mr. Diaz.
Deputy Hickman states in his
report that while Mr. Diaz held


Nodal on the floor, Mr. Durham
tried to restrain the inmate's feet.
At this point Nodal twice kicked
Mr. Durham on top of his head.
Two more staff members then
helped to restrain the 5-foot-10-
inch, 235-pound, Nodal.
Mr. Durham complained of
neck pain and was taken to Raul-
erson Hospital, stated the report.
Nodal was arrested without
further incident.

Bronson

warns

about jury

duty seam

TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son alerted consumers to a grow-
ing identity theft scam in which
con artists posing as courthouse
workers claim that the person be-
ing called has failed to report for
jury duty.
The scam has been reported
in 11 states, although it is unclear
whether it has surfaced in Florida,
officials say.
"If you get such a call, hang up
and avoid providing any personal
or financial information over the
phone," Bronson said. "Court
workers don't call on the phone
to inform you that you've missed
a jury duty summons."
The scam typically involves a
call from a person claiming to be
a jury coordinator who informs
the person being called that a
warrant has been issued for his
or her arrest as a result of the
person's failure to appear for jury
duty. When the intended victim
protests and reports that he or she
never received a summons to re-
port for jury duty, they are asked
for a social security number, a
date of birth and sometimes even
a bank account number.
Providing the information en-
ables the scam artist to clean out
the consumer's bank account
and open up other accounts,
obtain credit cards and establish
other lines of credit in the victim's
name, Bronson warned.
"This is a particularly insidious
fraud because most people take
jury duty seriously and naturally
would want to clear up any mis-
understanding about whether
they failed to show up for it as
quickly as possible,' Bronson
said. 'Such a call would under-
standably upset most people, es-
pecially with the threat of arrest,
and catch them off guard."
The scam has reportedly sur-
faced in New York, Minnesota,
Illinois, Colorado, Oklahoma and
other states in recent years, and
authorities are fearful that it may
be spreading.
It is yet another example of
how con artists try to rip off con-
sumers.
"People need to always re-
member to avoid giving any per-
sonal or financial information
over the telephone to anyone
whose identity they have not veri-
fied," Bronson said.

nection with the burglary of the
elderly woman's home.
Detective Durfee's report
states that once he was inside
the residence he saw a guitar on
the couch. He then contacted the
victim who identified the guitar as
the one stolen in the Oct. 7, 2008
burglary, continued his report.
The detective said the drill and
laptop are still missing and that
the change was spent.
Adams and Conner were first
arrested Nov. 25, in connection
with the break-in at the elderly
woman's home.
Adams was not only charged
with the burglary, but for trying
to run over the woman with his
car as he and Conner tried to flee
from the scene, said Detective
Van Deman.
He said the woman put her
hands on the Dodge Intrepid be-


ing driven by Adams and told the
couple that they weren't goint
anywhere. But, Adams gunned
the Intrepid's motor and as the cai
lurched forward the victim had tc

taking a large amount of jewelry
from the woman's home.
"He had already pawnee
some of the items at a local pawr
shop," said Detective Van Demar
shortly after Adams was arrested
"We have a hold on those item,
at the pawn shop."
The detective went on to sa3
that the couple threw a large
amount of costume jewelry intc
Chandler Slough. That jewelry
has been recovered, he added.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most
citizens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their
public officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions
are carrying out their public mission.


But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."


We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role
as humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courte-
ous tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.


How are we doing?

Waste Management helps Main Street beautify Okeechobee


As Okeechobee Main Street
works to beautify Okeechobee,
it now has help from national
non-profit Keep America Beau-
tiful, Inc., and Waste Manage-
ment, Inc., the leading provider
of comprehensive waste and
environmental services in North
America.
Okeechobee is one of 15
community recipients of Waste
Management's 2008 Keep Amer-
ica Beautiful Target City Awards
program, a national initiative de-
signed to improve communities,
and promote sustainability.
In Okeechobee, the Target City
award was presented downtown
in Flagler Park 6 on Friday Jan. 16.
The grant presentation took place
during the Florida Arbor Day pro-
gram presented by the Univer-
sity of Florida's Florida Yards and
Neighborhood (FYN) Program.
_0111L --


It was a day of enhancement for
the cherished parks in the center
of the community.
Following the Arbor Day poem
readings and trees plantings,
Jenny Pung of Waste Manage-
ment presented a $5,000 check to
Maureen Burroughs, president of
Okeechobee Main Street (OKMS).
This event marked the official an-
nouncement of the installation
of a colorful butterfly garden de-
signed by UF's FYN program.
OKMS will use these Keep
America Beautiful grant funds
from Waste Management to sup-
ply plants for four colorful butter-
fly attracting areas, park benches
and other amenities that will en-
hance the beauty and usefulness
of Flagler Park 6.
The butterfly garden will be-
come a teaching garden for local
residents to learn about the nine


principles of Florida Friendly land-
scaping. Local Master Gardeners
have committed themselves to
providing on-going maintenance
that will be required to keep the
butterfly garden looking beauti-
ful.
"This special Waste Manage-
ment awards program has been
a powerful catalyst for education
and environmental stewardship,"
said Matthew M. McKenna, Presi-
dent and CEO of Keep America
Beautiful, Inc. "We are thrilled to
have Waste Management spon-
soring this program in Okeecho-
bee and nationwide. This sup-
port is critical to helping keep our
country clean and beautiful and
to educating people about impor-
tant quality-of-life issues."
FYN's Angela Sachson has en-
listing the participation of local
nurseries that will supply plants


and assist with the installation of
this colorful garden. The plant-
ings will take place on Saturday,
Feb. 14. The City of Okeechobee
will assist with the installation of
a short-term water supply to es-
tablish the plants.
Larval and nectar plants to be
planted were chosen by Florida
Master Gardeners and other vol-
unteers from Riverwoods Na-
ture Center. The plants selected
are drought tolerant, low main-
tenance plants adapted to the
Okeechobee area. Other FYN
principles such as the use of re-
cycled mulch and low volume
irrigation are part of the garden
plan.
Using the grant funding, OKMS
is securing park benches that
use recycled materials. The new
benches will encourage more vis-
itors to enjoy the park when they
come downtown to support local
businesses and enjoy the beauty
of the gardens.
"Partnerships are how we
can improve the quality of life


in Okeechobee," said Waste
Management community rela-
tions representative Jenny Pung.
"Waste Management is proud to
support the extraordinary efforts
of Okeechobee Main Street and
the Florida Yards & Neighbor-
hood program offered by UF/
IFAS Okeechobee County Exten-
sion and its volunteer Master Gar-
deners."
UF/IFAS Extension offers FYN
educational programs to hom-
eowners, landscapers and devel-
opers. Programs encourage peo-
ple to manage their landscapes in
ways that will reduce pollutants
in stormwater. In Okeechobee,
the FYN program is an integral
part of the City of Okeechobee's
required efforts to reduce urban
non-point source pollution. For
more information about the FYN
program, go to http://okeecho-
bee.ifas.ufl.edu/Okeechobee.

Founder of St. Theresa's parish dies in Poland


Glades County Catholics were
saddened this week with the
news of the death of Father Emil-
ian Swiatecki.
Father Swaitecki, former pas-
tor of St. Joseph the Worker Cath-
olic Church in Moore Haven and
founder of St. Theresa parish in
Buckhead Ridge, died in his na-
tive Poland. He was 78.
Father Swiatecki was born in
Poland and was ordained there
in 1956. When he was first or-
dained, he worked with Bishop
Karol Wojtyla who would later
become Pope John Paul II.
Father Swiatecki loved his na-
tive country and had no desire to
ever leave it, but political circum-


stances made it impossible for
him to stay, according to a 2001
interview.
The outspoken priest defied
the Communists from the pulpit.
"I told the truth," he said. "They
didn't like it."
His life in danger, church offi-
cials sent Father Swiatecki to the
United States in 1972.
At first he was stationed in ar-
eas with Polish communities, but
communist agents still gave him
trouble. Eventually he was trans-
ferred to Florida and assigned to
the Venice Diocese. He served as
Parochial Vicar of St. Paul Parish,
St. Petersburg, Parochial Vicar
of St. Francis Xavier Parish, Fort


Myers, and Pa-
rochial Vicar of
Ascension Par-
ish, Fort Myers
Beach.
He became
pastor of St. Jo-
seph the Worker
Parish in Moore
Haven in No- Father
vember 1991. Swlatecki
FatherSwiate-
cki had humble beginnings at the
Moore Haven parish. The church
was already 30 years old and his
first home was a tiny trailer that
rattled and shook when trucks
passed the church property. The
parish's bank account held $42


and his first Mass at the parish at-
tracted 12 people.
As Father Swiatecki traveled
around Glades County, he dis-
covered the town of Buckhead
Ridge. With the permission of
Bishop John J. Nevins, he began
to offer services at the Buckhead
Ridge Community Center. In Oc-
tober of 1992, a repair shop build-
ing was purchased and renovated
to house St. Theresa of the Child
Jesus Mission.
In 1996, a more comfortable
rectory was built on the grounds
of St. Joseph the Worker Parish in
Moore Haven and in 1999, ground
was broken for a new $1.5 million
church building to accommodate


the growing Moore Haven con-
gregation and to provide religious
instruction classrooms.
The new St. Joseph Church
was dedicated in February 2000.
Father Swiatecki was particularly
proud of the mural that takes up
the entire wall behind the altar,
which depicts a smiling Jesus sur-
rounded by children. Local artist
Frank Hopper used children from
the parish as models.
In addition to his duties in
both Moore Haven and Buckhead
Ridge, Father Swiatecki served
as chaplain for Wackenhut Cor-
rectional Institute, which was
built on property neighboring
the church. Father Swiatecki also


helped establish a food pantry. Ai
the time of Father Swiatecki's re
tirement in 2001, the pantry wa,
distributing eight tons of food z
month to needy families in Glade,
County. Father Swiatecki's dedica
tion to his parishioners was evi
dent when he had a heart attack
in 1995. He upset his doctor b3
refusing to go to the emergency)
room until he had taken care o
parish business, making sure
there would be another priest tc
say Mass while he was in the hos
pital for by-pass surgery.
When he retired in 2001, Fathei
Swiatecki returned to his nativ(
Poland, which was no longer un
der the Communist influence.

Small business seminar planned for Jan. 22


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The Small Business Develop-
ment Center (SBDC) is open once
again thanks to the Florida Gulf
Coast University picking up the
SBDC program until it is handed
off to ndian River State College
later this year
IRSC will then be the home
for Okeechobee's Small Business
counseling.
"The staff at IRSC have been a
huge help to us and we are very
excited at the opportunity to work
with them on this project. I know
that when they take over full time,
the residents of Okeechobee are
in good hands and will be very im-
pressed," explained Sean Moore,
a Certified Business Analyst with
the Florida Gulf Coast University.
Mr. Moore is now in Okeecho-
bee to help prospective business
owners or current business own-
ers.
"We get just as many clients
from existing businesses as we
do start-up people. Sometimes it
helps to just sit and talk or bounce
an idea of off someone, and that's
one of the ways we can help,"
stated Mr. Moore.
The SBDC offers free, confi-
dential counseling sessions and
seminars available at no charge or
low cost to attendees covering a
variety of business topics.
The Okeechobee SBDC now
has temporary offices at the
Okeechobee Chamber of Com-


merce, and starting in February
we will hold office hours at Indian
River State College. Private coun-
seling sessions are by appoint-
ment only.
The first seminar will be the
"Frequently Asked Questions of
Starting a Small Business" semi-
nar, which is a compilation of
questions and issues the SBDC
has been asked about the most
in their private counseling ses-
sions. The seminar also covers the
questions that anyone thinking of
starting a business will have to an-
swer at some point in the process.
There will be a free seminar every
month in Okeechobee with a dif-
ferent topic covered each time.
This FAQ seminar will be held
at the Okeechoee County Public
Library on Thursday, Jan. 22, from
2 p.m. until 4 p.m. We ask that all
who are interested call or email to
reserve a spot. Seating is not the
issue, but in order for the session
not to be cancelled, we need to
know that people are coming to
the seminar.
Mr. Moore can be reached at
863-517-0097 or through email at
spmoore@fgcu.edu.
He is also accepting reserva-
tions for a program called REAL-
Rural Entrepreneurship through
Action Learning. This is a hands
on, activity-based class perfect
for current or hopeful business
owners. REAL is a 10 week class
that meets once a night for 10
weeks. "This class is a great way


to learn the skills you will need
to either plan a business, or op-
erate a business. We make it fun
and interactive because we think
that a hands on approach is the
best way for people to learn and
retain the skills they will have to
have down the road, or that they
may want a refresher on now if
they are already in business," Mr.
Moore explained.
"Plus, if all we did was lecture I
would probably be the first one to
get bored!" he continued.
The cost of the course is $100
up front, and upon meeting all the
course objectives attendees will
be refunded $90.
"We are not here to make
money off the community. We are
here to work with organizations
like the Chamber of Commerce,
Okeechobee Main Street, as well
as the City and County to contin-
ue to make Okeechobee a vibrant
and exciting place to live. So, we
give that money back. In fact, the
10 bucks we keep goes to throw-
ing a party for the attendees on
the last night," stated Mr. Moore.
Attendees will get software to
put together a professional busi-
ness plan as part of the course,
and have access to a roster of guest
speakers including lawyers, cpa's,
and insurance experts. Unlike the
seminars, space is limited for the
REAL program and reservations
are required. The program begins
February 17, and will be held from
6 p.m. until 9 p.m. at IRSC.


Mr. Moore grew up in Okeecho-
bee County and graduated from
OHS.
"When our state director
(Jerry Cartwright} offered FGCU
the chance to fill the opening in
Okeechobee and my boss Dan
Regelski asked if I would come
home I jumped at the chance.
The people were so nice when
I lived here as a kid and young
adult, and they still are. It's nice to
know some things never change,"
stated Mr. Moore.
Mr. Moore is excited to help


those who have continued to
shape his home town in any way
that he can.
"I am the first one to admit that
I do not know everything about
everything, and I have no problem
admitting that to the client. We
have a huge network of people in
our main office with such varied
backgrounds I can get them to
answer a question, and if nobody
there knows the answer I have an
entire statewide, and nationwide
network. If I admit I don't know
the answer, and then go find it, I


will be the help my cients need
If I lie my way through or make ii
up as I go along, that does their
no good and it destroys my cred
ibility- and that is not the wa3
the SBDC works. We are here tc
help our clients any way we car
and that is what we strive to dc
every single day," Mr. Moore con
cluded.

517-0097 or email spmoore@

reaction of the inauguration of
President Obama stating that he
"can't wait to see the changes
that are going to take place due
to the Obama administration. I
can't wait to see what the local
reactions are and I hope to see
the volunteerism and community
spirit increase in our rural com-
munity and in other rural areas
throughout the state."
Longtime voter John Lilley
proudly shared that he voted for
Franklin D. Roosevelt in both 1940
and 1944, while he served in the
U.S. Navy. Mr. Lilley, said he has
been a Democrat his entire life. In
his opinion, the first job for Presi-
dent Obama should be to "get
the boys out of Iraq because they
should have never been there in
the first place."
President Obama's speech
highlighted humbleness, grateful-
ness, mindfulness and thankful-
ness. Many of these aspects were
mentioned by high school stu-
dents in their reactions to the in-
auguration of the new president.
Several 18-year old students at
OHS shared their thoughts about
being involved in this monumen-
tal election process as their first


time voting.
Both Michelle Flores and Mir-
iam Hernandez expressed their
high expectations of President
Obama really helping out immi-
grants in the U.S.
Others, such as Clayton Colt,
thought "Obama is amazing."
Clayton mentioned "economic
views that are close to those of
President Clinton, and while he
was in office our economy was
thriving. I think with Obama
as President, we have the best
chance of getting the economy
back to what it should be. It is
also nice that the country is finally
moving past prejudices with the
election of the first black Presi-
dent."
April Gray was excited about
her first year of voting and was
glad that Obama was the first
President that she was able to
vote for.
Others offered their opinion of
past administrations, such as Ab-
dul Barbosa, "I feel that with this
presidency coming after arguably
the worst President, we have now
elected a President in Obama that
has the potential to become the
best president."
Steven Williams is excited for
this new era and admires Obama
for his sincerity and honesty. "My
hope and dream is that he has
the support he needs to run the

country," said Steven. "I believe
that with that support he can be a
very successful President."
High hopes and excitement
were coming from Brittany Hag-
gard, who is happy to be a part of
experiencing history in the mak-
ing while she is old enough to un-
derstand it.
"I think he is going to do a
lot of good, especially with the
economy which affects us greatly
as seniors in high school who are
going out into the college and
working world," she said.
City Councilman Dowling Wat-
ford expressed the historic nature
of this day. "This is a very serious
time that kind of overwhelms the
joy because of the economic situ-
ation and current military actions
that are going on. Ultimately it is
a hopeful time to see everyone

According to Mrs. Saucedo,
John and Lori Williams have

Charles Whitchurch was cited for

Watford.
That was the key purpose of
the Okeechobee Executive Com-
mittee holding this inauguration
luncheon-to bring all parties
together to mend wounds and
show support for the new Com-
mander-in-Chief Barak Obama.
As it was offered in closing by
President Barak Obama,
"America. In the face of our
common dangers, in this winter
of our hardship, let us remem-
ber these timeless words. With
hope and virtue, let us brave once
more the icy currents, and endure

Last month Wendell Cowart

move a derelict building and deck
and repair an electric meter on his
U.S. 441 S.E. property. Mrs. Sauce-
do said some work had been done
but the property was still not in
compliance. Mr. Cowart was fined
$100 a day for every day of non-
compliance beginning Jan. 21.
On Dec. 16 Special Magistrate
Nichols instructed Geraldine
Smith to remove the derelict struc-
ture from her N.W. 22nd Avenue
lot by Jan. 15 or face a possible
fine. Mrs. Smith stated the prop-
erty was in foreclosure and she
could not get clearance from the

derelict structure. She was given
a month to clear up the situation.
Mrs. Blanca stated that Jesus

siderable progress be on cleaning
up their S.W. 77th Terrace prop-

Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-

guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs if
it sounds too good to be

doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-

you check with the Better

complaints.
Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you
call a number out of your
area, use caution.

Okeechobee Brahmans upset Glades Central


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The Brahman gym was rocking
Thursday night as the Okeecho-
bee High School Boys' Basketball
Team upset the powerful Glades
Central Raiders in overtime, 69-
66.
David Jeune scored 36 points,
including six in the extra session
as Okeechobee won a key district
game in dramatic fashion.


June did most of his damage
at the free throw line down the
stretch. He noted he felt good at
the free throw line. "Everybody
did well tonight. A win is a win.
I had to work a little harder than
usual. The crowd made a big dif-
ference."
Okeechobee's home court
came alive as the Brahmans stuck
with the Raiders in the first half.
Okeechobee got three pointers by

June and Matt Skipper in the first
quarter but still trailed 17-12 after
the first quarter. Okeechobee fell
behind by as many as eight in the
first half but didn't give up. The
win allowed Coach Jon Enrico to
taste victory for the first time at
home against Glades Central.
"We finally played a full game
of basketball. This is the team we
are. Everyone did excellent to-
night. I can't complain," he said.


Belle Glade took a 24-16 lead
midway through the second
quarter but Jeune scored five
points in the final two minutes to
pull Okeechobee to within 33-30
at the break. Coach Enrico said
that gave the team a lot of confi-
dence.
"I told them to break the game
down into four games. If we win
each quarter we can't lose. I told
them we can't get down double

an excellent game from every-
body," he said.
The game was back and forth
in the second half. Glades Central
went back up by eight, 41-33 but
Okeechobee rallied thanks to six
points from Jeune to trail 49-45
after three quarters.
Okeechobee's crowd came to
life early in the fourth when Ter-
rance Allen nailed a three from
the corner and was fouled. His
four point play gave Okeechobee
their first lead, 53-51. He noted he
practices his outside shot under
pressure all the time and didn't
feel any pressure during the
game.
"My team was down and they
needed a big shot. The Lord or
somebody told me to shoot it and
I did. We started to believe at half-
time that we could do this. We
kept our heads up."
That wasn't the last we would
hear from Allen in this game.
Down the stretch Okeechobee
went up by three, 56-53 on a steal
and bucket by Matt Skipper. Je-
une's follow gave Okeechobee a
58-56 lead. Glades Central again
tied the game and had a chance
to win in regulation. However the
shot went awry and another four

Lonnie Pryor was named the
running back of the year last
Thursday at a banquet that hon-
ored the players who competed
in the Offense vs. Defense High
School All American Bowl in Myr-
tle Beach, S.C.
Pryor played in the annual
game Friday and rushed five
times for 30 yards and caught
three passes out of the backfield
as his East squad, defeated the
West Squad, 29-3.


"I thought the award was
one of the coolest things ever,"
Pryor said, "It was a lot of fun up
there."
The Brahman is the 97th high-
est ranked recruit in the nation
among major scouting services.
He has verbally committed to
Florida State and intends to make
his decision a permanent one
on national signing day. A small
ceremony is likely to be held at
Okeechobee High School in Feb
ruary.
Former Brahman football


Coach Chris Branham accompa-
nied Pryor to the banquet at the
week long camp in South Caro-
lina. He said he was very proud of
how Pryor accepted the award.
"I'm really proud to have
coached him and had the chance
to spend time together with him,"
Branham stated.
Pryor led Okeechobee to two
consecutive playoff appearances
and will leave school with virtu-
ally every school rushing record.

Alan Najera and Ivan Torres
had goals as Okeechobee won
for the first time in 2009, 2-0 over
Port St. Lucie on Friday night.
Okeechobee (8-5-4) used a
strong defensive effort and a new
alignment to baffle the Jaguar of-
fense.
Coach Lonnie Sears has placed
Najera back on the defensive end
due to the fact the team has been
having trouble scoring goals. He
has teamed with Oscar Garcia
and his brother Javier Garcia, to
improve the Brahman defense.


"We've had to go to a more de-
fensive oriented system and mind
set. We have been doing very well
with it," Sears said.
The Brahmans continue to
have problems putting the ball in
the net. Okeechobee had numer-
ous scoring opportunities against
Port St. Lucie. However, instead of
just putting the ball in the net, the
team has elected to try and make
the spectacular play or have sim-
ply kicked the ball too hard, miss-
ing the net entirely.
"We didn't finish our opportu-
nities. That could come back to
bite us against tougher teams,"
Sears said.


Najera seems to have adjusted
well back to the defense. He still
was able to score on a shot he
blasted from 30 yards away that
struck a defender, and deflected
into the net. Torres scored on a
nice head pass. Raunel Denova
and Raziel Castillo had assists for
Okeechobee. Pablo Caballero
had three saves in goal.
Okeechobee has this week off.
They will practice all week to pre-
pare for their district tournament
next Monday, Jan. 26 in Jensen
Beach/Okeechobee will match
up with either Lincoln Park or
Fort Pierce Westwood in the first
round.


ing accomplishment. He noted
there were several top running
backs up for the award this year.
Friday game was broadcast
on Fox College Sports. It was host-
ed by Coastal Carolina University.
The east has won all three of the
games played in the series. Only
the top 100 recruits in the nation
can participate in the game and
the week long camp.
In other football news, Kar-
eem Jones, Nate Pollard and Sam
Dixon are practicing this week for
the Outback Steakhouse All Star.
It will be held Saturday night, Jan.
10, at John I. Leonard High School
in West Palm Beach. Kickoff is at
7 p.m. Coach Branham is an as-
sistant coach in the game.
The search committee for a
new football coach at OHS inter-
viewed the three local candidates
for the position Monday, assistant
coach Rex Erwin, Bob Hardman
and James Shockley. The com-
mittee expects to recommend a
person to hire as coach in about
two weeks.

Safer for manatees in 2008


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Two manatees died in
Okeechobee and Glades County
during 2008 according to the an
nual manatee mortality report
released by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion.
In 2007, there were seven
manatees killed in Glades County
waters, but none in Okeechobee
County, FWC officials said.
The 2008 deaths occurred on
the Caloosahatchee River May


18 and on Taylor Creek on Jan.
20. The Okeechobee death was
caused by human factors. The
cause of death on the Caloosa-
hatchee River was still undeter-
mined as the mammal was found
badly decomposed.
The 2007 deaths were caused
by a variety of factors. The report
said two were killed while trying
to enter or exit locks on the Ca-
loosahatchee River. A third mana-
tee was killed on May 15, 2007 in
a collision with a watercraft. The
causes of death in the four other
cases are undetermined.


The FWC said there were no
manatee deaths in Okeechobee
in 2007.
State wide there were 337
manatee deaths reported in 2008.
In over 20 percent of those deaths,
72, the causes of death were un-
determined. 90 died in collisions
with watercraft.
There were 317 manatee
deaths in 2007. Of those, 82 were
natural deaths, 88 were caused
by undetermined means, and 73
occurred in collisions with water-
craft.
