County delays radio decision


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
What radio system will be
used to replace the sheriff's of-
fice antiquated system is still up
in the air. At their Jan. 22 meeting
the Okeechobee County Board
of Commissioners delayed a fi-
nal decision on the matter.
In other business, the board


did clarify how the 3 percent
employee raise would be admin-
istered, but they took no action
on a resolution to approve coor-
dination between South Florida
and St. Johns water control dis
tricts.
After over two hours of dis-
cussion involving consultant Bill
Waugaman and lobbying by rep-


resentatives of the two compet-
ing systems -- Motorola and Tyco
Electronics who own the State-
wide Law Enforcement Radio
System (SLERS), the board voted
to wait 60 days before making
a decision. The bulk of the cost
will be paid for with a grant.
Grant approval has already been
granted for SLERS. The grant

Okeechobee News/Eric Kopp
Firefighters from the Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue Department battled this mobile
home blaze at 2342 S.E. 33rd St. late Thursday afternoon, Jan. 22. The cause of the fire,
as well as the owner of the trailer, was unknown as of newspaper press time.


scoring process is not complete
for the Motorola system.
"The bottom line is you need
to replace the radio system your
first responders use," stated Mr.
Waugaman. He said the 50 year
old system is limited to voice and
cannot accommodate the data
of modern systems. He also stat-
ed that there is only one tower


which provides poor coverage.
SLERS is a state wide network
which is used by state agencies
and many local governments
including Glades County. It has
been in existence for some time.
Under SLERS the county would
have use of seven towers in ad-
joining counties plus two towers

Five accused



of cocaine



trafficking


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A joint undercover drug op
eration carried out Wednesday
in Okeechobee and Glades
counties culminated with five
arrests and the seizing of a large
amount of suspected powder
cocaine.
A detective with the
Okeechobee Narcotics Task
Force said the operation actual-
ly began in Glades County and
then continued to include a
SW. 15th St. home in Okeecho-
bee County.
Besides the task force and
Glades County Sheriff's Office
(GCSO), agents from the Drug
Enforcement Administration
(DEA) were involved in the Jan.


21 operation.
Glades County Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon said Thursday that
two Okeechobee residents
were arrested in Lakeport on
Jan. 21. He said Billy Ray Wind-
ham, 31, N.E. Eighth Ave., and
Justina Rose Rasmussen, 27,
N.E. Eighth Ave., were arrested
after allegedly delivering 57.6
grams of suspected powder
cocaine to an undercover law
enforcement officer.
Both Windham and Ras-
mussen were booked into the
Glades County Jail under bonds
of $250,000 each. They were
each charged with trafficking in
cocaine and possession of co-
caine with intent to sell.

Representatives of vari-

causes.
The event took place in the
Okeechobee County Health

a luncheon across the street
at the new Williamson Confer-

told the delegation. "Do the
best you can for us, we'll sup-

Okeechobee County Admin-
istrator Lyndon Bonner made
a pitch for improvements on
State Road 70 east of Okeecho-

used as a hurricane evacuation
route.
Another priority listed by Mr.
Bonner was the extension of
State Road 710 from its present
ending at S.R. 70 to continue

MANY VISITORS CASHING IN AT THE ROADSHOW THIS WEEK


Clean out those attics, basements and lock boxes and get ready to cash in


Clewiston -Clean out your
attics, closets and lock box,
the Roadshow is coming to
town. Roadshow experts are in
town all this week purchasing
antiques and collectibles.
While the Roadshow will
accept anything that's old,
they are focusing on gold and
silver, also coins made before
1965, military items, musical
instruments, pocket and wrist
watches. Modern jewelry with


diamonds and other precious
stones are also being accepted.
One person that attended
the Roadshow brought in an
1864 Civil War sword and
a coin collection and left 45
minutes later $10,000 richer.
Another was not as lucky but
seemed happy with the $355.00
they received for broken gold
jewelry. "I think this is a great
idea" said one lady that sold
her old class ring and some

memorabilia. Collectors are also interetsed in

broken gold chains. "The stuff
was just lying in a dresser
drawer for years." She received
$248.42 for her efforts. Jeff
Parsons, the president of the
Treasure Hunters Roadshow
explained what the show is all
about. It's a chance for anyone
to sell their stuff and get what
it's really worth he said. It
seems everyone has items they
have wondered about or want
to sell but really don't know
where to go said Parsons. He
said the show has been in over
600 cities since 2001. When
asked what the most memorable
experience was he had a quick
answer. "Without a doubt it was
a show in Pennsylvania when an
elderly gentleman asked if we
could send someone with him


to visit an old toy store he had
closed down 50 years ago. It
was like walking back in time"
Parsons said "the store's 50 year
old inventory was still on the
shelves the store was a treasure
trove of collectible toys. I have
never seen anything like it. It
was simply unbelievable!"
It seems the store was closed
due to World War II. "I had
to go serve my country." the
owner told Parsons. Serve he
did for the next 35 years. The
collection of vintage toys still
in their original boxes sold for
more than $650,000. All this
week Roadshow experts will
be accepting various types of
antiques and collectibles. The
event is free and no appointment
is necessary.

Flags show many children die from abuseI = Partners With I
PMI Prter Wthb


By Chauna Agullar
Okeechobee News
The greatest price to pay for
child abuse ... is with the life of
a child. Every year the Exchange
Club Castle sets up their Memory
Field in all of their counties that
they serve to memorialize more
than 170 children who have died
this past year in the state of Flori-
da, due to abuse and neglect.
A Mobile Memory Field of Flags
travels throughout Okeechobee
and the Treasure Coast to raise
public awareness and to remem-
ber each precious life lost. The
Memory Field of Flags will be in
Okeechobee from Friday, Feb. 13,
until Thursday, Feb. 19, in Flagler
Park.
You can make a statement in
support of child abuse preven-
tion by taking advantage of one
of many sponsorship opportuni-
ties associated with the Memory
Field.
CASTLE's mission is to im-
prove the quality of family life and
prevent child abuse and neglect
by providing community educa-


tion, support and resources for
parents in need of assistance on
the Treasure Coast and Okeecho-
bee County.
Their vision is to have a com-
munity where each child is al-
lowed to grow to his or her full
potential, free from abuse and ne-
glect, and families have access to
the supports they need to create
healthy living and learning envi-
ronments for children.
In Okeechobee CASTLE offers
three programs: Safe Families;
Families First; and Positive Parent-
ing.
Safe Families is where profes-
sional staff goes into homes to
provide parent education and
supportive counseling to families
at risk of abusing or neglecting
their children. According to their
website, relationship building is
the crux of the Safe Families Pro-
gram. CASTLE believes that all
families deserve and inherently
have the ability to make changes.
The program works with parents
to create these changes. Over 360
families are enrolled, and more
than 10,000 home visits are made


each year between Okeechobee
and the Treasure Coast.
Families First is a five-hour
educational seminar for divorcing
parents who have minor children.
The program focuses on making
the transition from marriage to
divorce with minimum trauma
to the children. The program ad-
dressed these ideas through lec-
tures, videotapes, role-playing and
discussions. Over 700 adults are
served each year on the Treasure
Coast and Okeechobee County.
Overall, 3,500 hours of classroom
time have been provided. A cer-
tificate is given upon completion
of this program.
Positive Parenting is a support
group for parents who are inter-
ested in learning new parenting
skills, including positive discipline
techniques and ways to improve
communication with their chil-
dren. Educational workshops and
seminars establish state of the art
parenting techniques in a group
setting. Classes run for three
weeks. Participants are required
to attend fifteen hours in order to
earn a certificate.


Last year in the State of Flor-
ida, 170 precious children lost
their lives as a result of abuse and
neglect.
CASTLE now receives at least
one referral an hour for at-risk
families needing their help. This
year, they will provide programs
and services to 10,000 children
and families living in Okeecho-
bee and on the Treasure Coast.
They provide parents the neces-
sary counseling, skills, resources
and support to accomplish their
mission the prevention of child
abuse.
As a direct result of CASTLE's
intervention, 3,000 families will
stay together and children will
have the opportunity to grow and
thrive in healthy, happy homes.
The program seeks local spon-
sors and contributions. To find
out how you can contribute, or to

ily, visit www.castletc.org or call

Two men face felony charges of possession


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Two men were arrested on
felony drug charges after the ve-
hicle in which they were traveling
was stopped for a non-working
brake light.
Arrested Tuesday, Jan. 20,
were Reginald Vachon Massey,
24, N.W 17th St., Okeechobee,
and Devon A. Mitchell, 20, S.E.
14th Court, Okeechobee.
Massey was charged with the
felony of possession of cocaine
with intent to sell, and the mis-
demeanor of possession of drug
paraphernalia. He was booked
into the Okeechobee County Jail
under a bond of $7,500.
Mitchell was charged with the
felony of possession of cocaine,
as well as the misdemeanor of
possession of drug parapherna-
lia. His bond was set at $6,000.
An arrest report by a detective
with the Okeechobee Narcotics
Task Force indicates that when


Reginald V. Devon A.
Massey Mitchell
the 1995 black Mercury auto-
mobile operated by Mitchell was
stopped on N.W Seventh St.,
the passenger in the car jumped
from the car and ran. When the
passenger bolted, the detective
stated in the report that he was
concealing something.
That passenger, Massey, ran
east along a ditch line and then
ran between two houses, contin-
ued the report.
Massey was found a short
time later hiding in some woods
about one block east of where
the Mercury was stopped by
Deputy Matthew Hurst of the


Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO), continued the
report.
The task force detective went
on to say that Deputy Hurst later
retraced Massey's steps when he
ran. In the side yard of a N.W
Seventh St. residence the deputy
reportedly found a box of baking
soda, a set of digital scales, a glass
cooking pot and 15.0 grams of a
hard and suspicious substance.
When that substance was
field tested it allegedly indicated
a positive result for the presence
of cocaine.
According to the detective's
report, the baking soda, scales
and glass pot are commonly
used in the production of crack
cocaine.
The detective's report goes on
to state that Massey is currently
on probation.
A check of Massey's back-
ground indicates that he is
currently serving a probation
sentence of one year after be-


ing found guilty of driving while
license suspended second con-
viction by County Judge Jerald
Bryant on Oct. 31, 2008.
That check also shows that
Massey is currently out on bond
following his Sept. 9, 2008, arrest
on a felony charge of aggravated
battery.
In 2006, Massey was found
guilty of possession of cocaine,
possession of marijuana over 20
grams and possession of drug
paraphernalia. On July 26, 2006,
then-Circuit Court Judge Sher-
wood Bauer sentenced Massey
to one year in the county jail on
each charge, with the sentences
to run concurrently.
The task force detective's re-
port on Tuesday's incident states
that he also issued Mitchell a
traffic citation for driving while
license suspended without
knowledge. Mitchell was also
given a verbal warning about the
brake lights on his car.

4 OPINION Okeechobee News, Friday, January 23, 2009


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!

Shopping center
LAND SOLD: YIPPEE. Brantley's is finally going to be something
positive. Okeechobee desperately needs some alternative shopping
choices, then maybe we can keep our money in Okeechobee and not
give it to the folks on the coast. I just hope we get something more
than another laundromat, another small restaurant, another jewelry
store. Know what I mean? We need some major retail chain. If not,
it's back to the coast.
TREES: Now that the old salvage yard will be developed, I wonder
if any of the oaks there will be saved. In other counties the removal
of such majestic trees would not be allowed without any uproar from
the community. Will the same people so eager to save dilapidated
buildings do anything for these much older trees? Or will they stand
by as they are chopped down to make room for an unneeded strip
mall? Whycouldn't the county turn this beautiful property into a park?
Was it ever even considered? Call me a tree hugger, but to pave over
this property reflects the uncaring nature of this city's leaders.
BUY LOCAL: I can't see how any new store could think of coming
here right now. We are not supporting the ones we have. Buy local,
buy American.
PARK: No private owner is going to turn a valuable piece of high-
way frontage property into a free park to be maintained for the rest
of the world to frolic and play, fly kites and eat ice cream, and watch
Toto play. What would be their incentive unless they were just filthy
rich and benevolent. And neither the county nor the city has the funds
to purchase this property. We have a beautiful property suited for
what you describe that is already set aside for park use. It just needs
to be developed. The sports complex has a large area on its east side
that should have an entrance opened from 441 at the high school
entrance light. The trees and shrubs would make a beautiful area for
walking trails and BBQ pavilions, a place for the everyday young and
old citizen to enjoy spontaneously, which I believe we need more of
now than we need more organized sports areas. But it costs money
to develop and maintain these things. Right now, if you proposed it to
the county, they would probably tell you to go fly a kite.

Should Mrs. Obama receive a salary?
FIRST LADY: On the news they are discussing whether or not
Michelle Obama should receive a salary for her duties as First Lady.
None of the other first ladies have been paid. Hillary Clinton was a
lawyer -like Mrs. Obama -and she had to give up her law practice
to be first lady and she wasn't drawing a salary. So why now all of
the sudden are they talking about whether or not the first lady should
receive a salary?"
DUTIES: The first lady has no official duties, therefore should not
receive a salary.
FIRST MOM: Michelle Obama, if she chooses to become a stay
at home mom, child care should not be an issue. Could you imagine
being a stay at home mom in the White House, with cooks, maids,
yard maintenance ... I could handle that.
KIDS COME FIRST: Mrs. Obama is not instigating this bid for
First Ladies to get a salary. This first came up when Hillary Clinton
was the First Lady. Michelle Obama has said publicly that her inten-
tion is to stay at home indefinitely until her children are acclimated to
their new home, school, and community. She said she doesn't intend
to take on any official duties at this time, but she does look forward
to doing so at some point in the future. I'm looking forward to her at
some point having some sort of input because she is highly intelligent
and has an impressive education. She was earning a 6 figure salary
before Obama was elected.
PAY: Get a divorce and see how much your first lady gets paid.

Litter bugs
HIGHWAY MESS: My employer assigns me to pick up litter along
the 13 miles of Dark Hammock and Berman Roads between U.S. 441
and S.R. 70. After four years of careful analysis I have concluded that
over 95 percent of the debris is fast food containers. I ask myself, why
would a usually law abiding, tax paying citizen toss these items on
the highway? Maybe this individual doesn't want his spouse to find
a McDonald's bag or a large Town Star Styrofoam cup or a Wendy's
french fries container in the vehicle so they dispose of it along the
road. Whatever the reason, I have a special request to make: Either
dispose of your lunch trash in a responsible way or please put all the
napkins, Styrofoam and empty containers into a single bag before
placing it outside your car window. That will make it much easier for
me to gather it up. Thanks.
FLYING DEBRIS: Wonder how much junk I've seen flying out of
a back of a pickup bed over the years.

DCF not putting children first
DCF: DCF does exactly what they want to do and don't you know
that they are always right? I have been working on a case with DCF
and AHCA concerning an abuse case with my stepfather. And don't
you know that with all the photos of the abuse and other charges that
they still don't get it?
CHILDREN: I have a very close friend who is raising his little boys
by himself due to the drug abuse of the mother, not to mention the
emotional and physical abuse she has bestowed upon them. Every
time she doesn't like what the judge tells her, she runs out hires a new
lawyer and takes the dad back to court with abuse allegations of her
own. Those little boys will never have any peace in their lives because
mommy dearest will always be there to strike out with the bad words.
Their father is a wonderful man, supports the children, pays his rent
on time every month and the children are in school on a consistent
basis. More than what I can say that the "mother" ever did for these
children. It makes me sick that she keeps dragging these kids through
the courts without any thought for anyone but herself.

Obama ... what's going on?
QUESTION: If Colin Powell would have run last term and won,
would he be getting the great celebration that Obama is getting now??
I am tired of hearing that Obama is African American ... and that is
all that is harped on. What about his white heritage? Not much of a
mother but great grandparents with morals and standards. After all he
was raised by them, and look what a great job they did.
THE RACE CARD: Now that the election is over, there is no harm
in celebrating the fact that this country elected a Black man. Obama
did not use the race card in his campaign -- the media did and the
voters did. This is a great feat, not for Obama because in the end it is
the people who voted for him. As a country we accomplished some-
thing many people never thought would happen, and we should all
be proud, because it means as a country we are moving towards
equality, and whether you like his platform or not, that is something
EVERYONE should be proud of.
UPBRINGING: Obama did not harp on race -- in fact, he avoided it
at every opportunity. Also, he never mentioned how "hard he had it."
In fact, he gave great credit to his mother for her ideals, to his grand-
parents for their guidance, and to his Indonesian stepfather, who he
said was a decent man. He went to private schools in Indonesia, was
then raised in Hawaii, then went on to Ivy League colleges, where
he was president of the Harvard Law Review. I don't think he had it
very hard.
MEDIA: I am sick of the media harping on his African-American
status as well. He is half white. And he did accomplish some major
goals. And yes Tuesday was history making, but it would have been
history making if he were all white because it is still another new
president. The media is making a bigger deal out of this because he
is half black. I did vote for Obama. I voted for him because I did truly
believe that our country could not withstand another eight years of
the same.
MIXED RACE: I think the election of Barack Obama is a great
thing for all the mixed race children in this country. Too often they
feel like outcasts in both the white and black communities. Now they
have a great role model.


A Healthier You

By Lison
Philor-Jonassaint RD, LD
Okeechobee County WIC
Program Director
What should I eat to stay
healthy? There is not a day that
goes by without someone trying
to answer this question. News-
papers, magazines, books, radio
and television give us a lot of ad-
vice about what food we should
or should not eat. Unfortunately,
much of this advice is confusing
and unsound.
Food alone cannot make you
healthy. Health depends on many
things including, genetics, life
style, mental and health attitudes
and the environment. Good eat
ing habits based on sound nutri
tion can, however, help keep you
healthy and even improve your
health.
Good nutrition can prevent
health problems such as iron
deficiency anemia, obesity, eat
ing disorders, undernutrition,
and dental carries. Over the long
term, good nutrition can help you
lower the risk of having chronic
disease such as heart disease, dia
betes mellitus, stroke and certain
cancers. It can also lower the risks
that can lead into these diseases,
for example high blood pressure
and high blood cholesterol.
Although there is no ideal diet


for everyone, there are some gen-
eral guidelines that researchers
have developed that are believed
to optimize your health through
eating right. These are guidelines
intended for people who are
healthy.
The Dietary Guidelines for
Americans, 2005, can direct the
way to a healthier you. Some of
its recommendations include
making smart choices from every
food group. Giving your body the
balanced nutrition it needs by eat-
ing a variety of nutrient-packed
food every day and staying within
your daily calorie needs. Getting
the most nutrition out of your cal-
ories by choosing the most nutri
tionally rich food from each food
group each day, those packed
with vitamins, minerals, fibers
and other nutrients but lower in
calories.
Finding your balance between
food and physical activity by in-
cluding regular exercise every
day is important for your over
all health. It helps control body
weight, promotes a feeling of
well being, and reduces the risk
of chronic diseases.
For questions about devel-
oping a healthy lifestyle please
contact the Health Department at
863-462-5819, or your Healthcare
provider.

Butterfly garden planned


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Flagler Park will soon be im-
proved by the addition of a butter-
fly garden thanks to action taken
by the Okeechobee City Council
at their Tuesday evening, Jan. 20
meeting.
The council also approved
three ordinances dealing with
land use, a developer's agree-
ment for Southern Trace and ac-
cepted an easement.
Council members gave ap-
proval to plans for a butterfly gar-
den presented by Maureen Bur-
roughs of Okeechobee Main Street
(OMS) and Dan Culbert, county
extension agent. Mrs. Burroughs
said that OMS has a $5,000 grant
which they were originally going
to use to beautify the courthouse
lawn. However, since remodeling
of the courthouse would delay the
lawn improvement and the grant


has a time limit, the organization
decided to put a butterfly garden
in Flagler Park Number 6, which
is the western most park.
Mr. Culbert presented draw-
ings of the proposed garden and
explained what type of plants
would be used. He said the
plants would be very colorful to
attract butterflies and the seeds
would attract songbirds. He said
the plants chosen would be low
maintenance and would require
very little watering after they were
established.
The garden could possibly in-
clude a trellis and benches and
will be mulched heavily with do-
nated mulch.
After lengthy discussion, the
council approved a developers
agreement for a multifamily resi-
dential project in the northwest-
ern part of the city know as South-
ern Trace. According to the terms
of the agreement, the developer


agreed to pay his fair share of the
costs of any traffic signals neces-
sary. The developer will also be
required to have two park areas
available to the general public.
Recently the council voted to
close the undeveloped portion of
N.E. Second St. adjacent to Tay-
lor Creek because of a proposed
commercial development in the
area. The owners gave the city an
easement to the right of way.
Turning to land use ordinanc-
es, the council passed an ordi-
nance concerning business park-
ing areas. It deals with the sale of
an existing business that does not
meet current parking standards. If
the same type of business contin-
ues in that location, use of exist-
ing parking would be allowable.
However, if a different type busi-
ness went into that location that
required more parking, current
parking standards would have to
be met.


In a zoning issue, the zoning
on the property on N.W Second
Avenue owned by the county and
leased to ARC was changed from
commercial professional office to
public facilities. The new zoning
is more in line with the actual use
of the property.
In another zoning matter
the council changed the zoning
from residential multiple family
to commercial profession office
for property on N.E. llth Street.
The zoning change would allow
the owner, A.M.S.A. LLC, to oper-
ate a home health service on the
property.
The council also approved
temporary downtown street clos-
ings for OMS and Chamber of
Commerce events in the coming
year.

Monofilament line recycled


(863


Okeechobee Soil and Wa-
ter Conservation District, in
cooperation with Okeechobee
County Parks and Recreation
has installed 18 monofilament
line collection bins throughout
the county for the Monofila-
ment Recovery and Recycling
Program (MRRP). The program
was initiated by the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission which relies on partners
to carry out the program.
So why do we need a Mono-
filament Recovery and Recycling
Program in our county?
An article in Friday, Jan. 16,
2009 Okeechobee News regard-
ing the entangled white ibis that
was rescued by Charlie's Tree
Service and Arnold's Wildlife
Center is one of the many exam-
ples why the recycling of mono-
filament line is so important.
Monofilament line is an-
other name for single-strand,
high-density, nylon fishing line
that is used on fishing reels and
in the manufacturing of fish-
ing nets. Most monofilament is
non-biodegradable and can last
hundreds of years depending on
environmental conditions. Be-
cause it is thin and often clear, it
is very difficult for birds and ani-
mals to see, so they can easily
brush up against it and become
entangled. Mobility is then hin-
dered which results in animals


becoming weak, starved or of-
ten fall prey to predators. Mana-
tees are especially affected by
misplaced monofilament, for
these animals are known to put
new objects in their mouths
for investigation. Ingestion of
monofilament causes intestinal
problems or a false "full" feeling
and can lead to starvation.
Monofilament also causes
a threat to divers and boaters.
There are several cases of divers
running out of air before they
were able to free themselves
from tangles near piers, bridges
and on artificial wrecks where
fishing and diving both occur
in these areas. Boaters are most
familiar with monofilament en-
tanglements around boat pro-
pellers.
There are numerous ways
you can help control the amount
of monofilament in the environ-
ment while walking along banks
and piers and recovering it. If
you throw line in the trash, cut it
up into small lengths to protect
wildlife at the landfill from en-
tanglement. However, line at the
landfills is not recycled. A better
choice is to put the monofila-
ment line in a recycling bin.
Anglers should also be aware
of what kind of line and tackle
they are using. Make sure you
use the proper test line for what
you are fishing for, in order to

prevent broken lines. Retrieve
miscasts into the trees if it is re-
alistic to do so and place the line
in a cooler, tackle box or your
pocket until you can properly
dispose of it versus throwing it in
the boat where it can later blow
out into the water. Sign up for
lake cleanup days or adopt an
outdoor recycling bin by volun-
teering to collect recycled line.
Henry Creek, Nubbin Slough,
Jaycee Park and Platts Bluff are
some of the boat ramps that are
equipped with recycling bins.


Line and spools that are
collected are sent to Pure Fish-
ing Line (a Berkley company)
and recycled into tackle boxes,
spools for line and toys. If you
are interested in volunteering
for collection, or would like a
map to all the monofilament
recycle bin sites, please contact
Okeechobee Soil and Water
Conservation District for more
information at 863-763-3619.
Citizens are welcome to recycle
their unwanted line in our office,

tem right away and maintenance would
be handled for $9 a month per radio.
TheproposedMotorolasystemwould
be a joint effort between Okeechobee.
St. Lucie, Martin and Highlands coun-
ties and it could be six months before
it is operational. The county would be
responsible for maintenance, however,
the other participating counties could
help with maintenance costs. It would
use only the two towers in the county.
Mr. Waugaman said he had never
seen such lobbying over a $5 million
contract. He said that type lobbying
usually accompanies a $50 million con-
tract. Perhaps that is a sign of the hard
economic times and could be to the
county's advantage.
The vote was 3-1 to table the issue

John Hayford, executive director of
OUA, requested funding for expansion
of the wastewater treatment plant and
for an east side sewer main that would
allow taking Treasure Island off septic
tanks.
"Thank you for being friends of pub-
lic education," Okeechobee County
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patricia
Cooper told the panel. She presented
them each with a parents' guide and
her card which has her legislative issues
printed on the back.
"We all know that adequate funding
for public education is critical," the su
perintendent said.
Most of her presentation dealt with
opposition to any further reduction in
education funding. She said that state
funds for Okeechobee schools had been
cut for the first time in many years. She
requested that the legislature eliminate
unfunded mandates, restore funds for
education programs above the level of
basic education programs and continue
to give local school districts flexibility in
spending funds. Dr. Cooper also asked
the panel to consider new or additional
revenue sources to fund education.
"Public education is an investment
in our economy," she told the lawmak-
ers. "We ask that you invest in public
education and the economy."

for 60 days to see if Motorola could get
approval for grant funding. Commis
sioner Ray Domer cast the only negative
vote. He was in favor of immediately ap-
proving SLERS.
Looking at the employee pay raise
that just went into effect, the board de-
cided that those employees who are not
at the top of their pay grade will receive
a 3 percent addition to their base salary.
Those employees at the top of their pay
grade will receive a 3 percent quarterly
bonus.
In a conservation issue, the board
was asked to adopt a resolution sup-
porting the reconnect of South Florida
and St. Johns water control districts.
Commissioner Noel Chandler said the
proposed reconnect would allow the
exchange of water between the two wa-
ter management districts. If there were
an abundance of rain in one district, the
excess water could be sent to the ad-
joining district. Commissioner Domer
said he thought it could be a good thing

ony of trafficking in cocaine, and the
misdemeanor of possession of drug
paraphernalia.
Maya was charged with the felony of
trafficking in cocaine. She was also ar
rested on misdemeanor charges of pos-
session of marijuana under 20 grams
and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Records at the Okeechobee County
Sheriff's Office (OCSO) indicate that
Baltazar, Starcher and Maya were in
the process of being booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail Thursday af-
ternoon, Jan. 22, so their bonds had not
been set.
Following the arrests in Lake-
port, the investigation switched to
the home on S.W. 15th St. where an
undercover officer entered the home


I'm not asking for money," Okeecho-
bee County Sheriff Paul May said. He
asked the delegation for their support
for House Bill 85 which would make
constitutional officers the head of their
departments. If passed, it would mean
that the sheriff, the property appraiser,
the tax collector and the supervisor of
elections would each have the final
word in disputes with unions represent-
ing their employees.
Instead of requesting funds, Dr. Mary
Locke, of Indian River State College, gave
an update on the progress her school
has made in the last year. She said that
historically when the economy is bad,
people go back to college. She spoke
of the new Williamson Conference and
Education Center which was built with
private funds solicited in Okeechobee
County plus matching state funds. Dr.
Locke said the new facility allowed the
college to teach courses never before
offered there. She said that 90 percent
of Okeechobee County students who
go to college attend IRSC. Dr. Locke re
minded the legislators that colleges are
catalysts for economic development.
Elizabeth Maxwell of the Okeecho-
bee County Economic Council said
her organization endorsed the requests
made that afternoon by the city, the
county and OUA. She reminded the del-
egation that Okeechobee County has
been designated a rural area of critical
economic concern.
"Okeechobee is literally a crossroad
of the state," Mrs. Maxwell said. "All
roads lead to Okeechobee."
She urged improvements for the in-

Okeechobee County has higher rates
of obesity, tobacco related illnesses,
coronary heart disease, cancer, and dia-
betes when compared to other Florida
Counties according to the latest county
health status summary compiled by the
Florida Department of Health.
The annual 'Charts' report said
Okeechobee had fewer adults who en-
gage in physical activity, and more who
smoke tobacco products.
The number of adults who meet
moderate physical activity recommend
nations was 31.9 percent. The state
average is 34.6 percent. Okeechobee
also had a large amount of adults who
engage in no leisure time physical activ-
ity, 37.3 percent. The state average was
26.4 percent.
The obesity rate among adults in
Okeechobee was 34.4 percent, about
10 points higher than the state average.
While Okeechobee had a higher
rate of tobacco use than the state, the
rate, 20.4 percent, has been reduced
in recent years. The state average was
19.3 percent.
The charts report said 34.9 percent
of Okeechobee adults 25 years and old-
er did not have a high school diploma
or equivalency. The state average was
20 percent. Those numbers were ac
cording to the 2000 Census.
Okeechobee had 69 percent of adults
with health insurance. That compared
to the state average of 81.4 percent.
The County also had a lower rate of
licensed family physicians. Okeechobee
had a rate of 9.5 physicians per 100,000
people. The state average was 17.4 per
100,000.
Health Department Director Frank
Kruppa said the state breaks down the
counties into four quartiles. One is the
best, and four is the lowest 25 percent
or for counties who need improvement.
Okeechobee turned up in the bottom
quartile in many categories.
Mr. Kruppa said his department
continues to focus on tobacco use.
The Students working against tobacco
program has helped the county make
strides in their rate of tobacco users.
He noted that many rural areas share
the same problems when it comes to
health issues. He noted many commu-
nities share the need for physicians. He
noted there is a shortage of health care
professionals in Florida.
The report said the county had a
high death rate due to coronary heart
disease, 197 per 100,000, but that the
rate has improved in recent years. The
state average was 125.9 per 100,000.
Okeechobee had a high hospitaliza-
tion rate for congestive heart failure,
and have a large segment of the adult
population who haven't gotten tested
for cholesterol levels.
The death rate for lung cancer
in Okeechobee County was 73 per
100,000, much higher than the state av-
erage of 49 per 100,000.
Okeechobee also had a high rate for


but he felt he did not have enough infor
nation to make a decision. The consen
sus of the board was that not enough
information was available so the board
decided to take no action. Turning to
the proposed new jail, the board autho-
rized advertising for a request for infor-
mation to solicit information about con-
struction financing that may be used to
develop a request for proposal. It is not
a request for bids.
In other action, the board:
proclaimed the week of Feb. 17
to be 211 Awareness Week in Okeecho
bee County;
scheduled a public hearing for Feb.
26 to abandon a utility easement in Tay-
lor Creek Isles;
approved current waterway regu-
latory markers as sufficient;
approved removal and replace-
ment of the concrete floor as part of the
courthouse rehabilitation project;
decided on a design for floor tile
for the courthouse;

shortly before 6 p.m. and purchased
2 ounces of suspected powder co-
caine, stated a task force detective's
arrest report.
According to the report, the buy
was made with marked money and
was monitored both visually and au-
dibly.
Once the alleged transaction had
been completed officers from the
three agencies entered the home
where they not only found Baltazar,
Starcher and Maya but three children
ages 5, 4 and a baby under the age
of 1 year.
The officers then executed a
search warrant and found suspect-
ed marijuana, suspected cocaine,
scales and a large sum of U.S. cur-


tersection of the U.S. 441 and S.R. 70
intersection stating that it was a safety
issue and hampered the growth of the
area.
"We've got to accelerate the S.R. 70
and U.S. 441 projects," Senator Pruitt
said. He added that that intersection is
the only intersection in the five counties
he represents that causes such a bottle-
neck.
The Senator closed the meeting with
words of encouragement. He said the
state budget still has some money for
local projects plus any federal money


colorectal cancer, 18.6 per 100,000. The
state average is 15.3 per 100,000.
55.4 percent of Okeechobee wom-
en 40 years and older have received a
mammogram in the past year. The state
average was 64.9 percent.
The County had a high rate of cervi-
cal cancer, 14.7 per 100,000, but a very
low rate of prostate cancer, 12.9 per
100,000.
Okeechobee had a higher than aver
age rate of diabetes, 11.2 percent, com-
pared to 8.7 percent in the state.
Mr. Kruppa said a lack of activity and
high smoking rates will lead to these
types of numbers. He said the depart-
ment tries to get to the root causes of
these illnesses and try their best to uti-
lize the resources they do have to im-
prove the situation,
"We look at it from a holistic point
of view. We focus our programs on
these problems. We use these numbers
as an organization to integrate our ac
tivities and to improve our services," he
added.
The report stated Okeechobee had a
higher death rate for HIV/Aids. The rate
was 10.3 per 100,000. The state average
was 9.1 per 100,000.
The report stated 69.2 percent of
pregnant women received early pre-
natal care in the first trimester of their
pregnancy. That compared to 77 per-
cent in the state.
Okeechobee also had a high rate
of births to mothers between the ages
of 15 and 19. The rate was 85.2 per
100,000. The state average was 42.9 per
100,000.
The repeat birth rate to mothers be-
tween the ages of 15 and 19 was 19.1
percent, which was above the state av-
erage, 16.3 percent.
The fetal death rate, 9.7 per 100,000,
was also higher than the state average
of 7.5 per 100,000.
The report also stated that Okeecho-
bee had high rates of deaths caused by
motor vehicle crashes, 43.4 per 100,000,
more than twice the state average, and
stated Okeechobee adults were more
likely to commit suicide and be mur-
dered.
"We take the overall message of this
report and use it as a tool to direct our
activities and our limited resources in
the most productive fashion," Kruppa
added.
Okeechobee Health Director Dr.
Pasqualino Caputo is leaving the health
department at the end of this month.
Mr. Kruppa said a plan is being formu-
lated to find a successor. He noted the
department will continue services in
the interim while a successor is found.

erty Appraiser Bill Sherman for a spe-

rency, stated the arrest report. The
report went on to state that during
the search the officers also found the
marked money used to make the buy.
In fact, some of that marked money
was in the possession of Baltazar's
5-year-old son, stated the detective's
report.
According to the task force detec-
tive there were also two other wom-
en in the home at the time of the al-
leged transaction, but they were not
charged.
"They had no connection with
what was going on," said the detec-
tive. "They had no connection with
the illegal activity."
The detective went on to say that
this investigation is continuing.

the group that money is sometimes re
averted back to the state because it is not
used. He said that IRSC received funds
that were originally earmarked for an
other college that did not use them.
"Leave no stone unturned," he
urged. "There are windows of oppor
tunity."

Yearling boys and girls defeat rival


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
After the game most of the
Yearling Middle School girls bas-
ketball players were overjoyed
and full of energy. During the
game they seemed to have plenty
of energy to out-work rival Osce-
ola Middle School.
Ami Edwards (pronounced
I-Me), had 14 points and 15 re-
bounds to lead the Lady Yearlings
to a 26-20 victory over Osceola
on the Warriors floor. She said
the victory made her very happy
as she got to play in front of her
mom, her pastor, and her mom's
co workers at the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office.
"It was really fun. I was glad
because they beat us at our home
gym and we beat them at their
home gym. It was really cool,"
she said.
Osceola had won the earlier
battle in December in overtime.
This time Yearling was looking for
revenge.
The game was a tough defen
sive battle. Neither team scored
in the first three minutes of the
game. Yearling led 5-2 after one
quarter. The second quarter was
full of turnovers and sloppy ball
handling. Edwards made a lay in
to make it 9-2. Amber Cunning-
ham, eight points, hit a jumper
to pull Osceola within five points.
Janet Smith's bucket gave Year-
ling an 11-6 lead at halftime.
The second half was close as
well. Edwards and Cunningham
again traded baskets in the third
quarter, and Shamara Shanks hit
a jumper to give Yearling a 16-13
lead after three quarters.
The Yearlings took a nine point
lead early in the fourth quarter as
Shanks hit a bucket and a free
throw. Delaney Osceola added
a bucket for Yearling. Osceola
didn't give up as they rallied to
within four points after a lay up by
Ganonna Johnson, who sat out
the first half. Edwards followed
a missed shot with a bucket to
make it 24-18. Cunningham then
hit a 14 footer to make it 24-20.
Yearling put the game away as
Edwards hit a shot from the base-


Coach Erin Morrow said she
was proud of the way the Year-
lings held together late in the
game, "They played really well.
They held their composure when
the other team came back at the
end. We did what we needed to
do and I've very proud of them.
They were really passionate about
winning this game."
Shanks had five points for
Yearling (2 4). Thad Sanders had
six points for Osceola.
Yearling also took the boys
game with an impressive first
quarter. They scored the first 11
points of the game and defeated
the Warriors, 48-28. Alejandro
Diaz had 13 points for Yearling.
Sylvester Butler led the Warriors
with 13 points. Lavonte Spivey
had five steals in the first six min-
utes of the game to set the tone
on defense for Yearling.
Nine Yearling players scored.
Marshall Tommie had nine points.
Joey Santibanez had eight points.
Jose Loredo had six points, JT Os-
ceola had four points and three
players, Lavonte Spivey, Ezequiel
Gomez and Layton Thomas had


two points. Eddie Neal had 11
points for Osceola.
Yearling Coach Lance Sluder
said he was impressed with how
his team played, "We won the
game. Osceola went on a late ral-
ly but it was not enough. I would


like to thank my co-coach Efrain
Ochoa, along with the parents of
the players for being patient and
allowing our student athletes to
have a successful season."
Yearling ended their season
with a record of (7-5). Osceola
plays next week at Sebastian
Middle.

Juene

pours in 34

in loss to

Clewiston
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
David Jeune had an almost
super human effort Tuesday as
he scored 34 points and grabbed
14 rebounds in a 72-65 loss to
Clewiston.
Jonathon Williams had 20
points to lead the Tigers to
their second win this year over
Okeechobee. Corey White added
18 points for Okeechobee.
Brahman Coach Jon Enrico
said his team got off to a slow
start and couldn't rebound against
Clewiston. Okeechobee trailed
46-32 after a sluggish first half.
"We have to make up our mind
that we are going to play defense.
Giving up 46 points in one half is
just unacceptable," Enrico said.
June and White combined to
make eight, three-point baskets
on the night. Jeune hit 10 of 12
free throw attempts. Other than
those two, Okeechobee couldn't
manage much offense.
Austin Willard and Joey Voss
were praised for their work on the
defensive end.
"We still are having a hard time
putting four quarters together. We
just got down in this game and
couldn't dig our way out of it. You
can't wait until the last minute to
play the game," Enrico added.
Okeechobee has a key district
game at Lincoln Park tonight (Jan-
uary 23). They return home on
Tuesday, January 27, to host For-
est Hill in another district game.
The Okeechobee JV defeated
Clewiston.
