Man accused


of gang crimes



gets plea deal


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A reputed gang leader will
soon be out of jail after he
agreed to a plea deal offered by
the state.
Samuel "Lil' E" Medrano,
20, N.W. 44th Ave., was ar-
rested almost a year ago on a
number of felony charges that
included aggravated stalking,
retaliation against a witness,
aggravated assault and battery.
In all, he was charged with
16-gang related felonies. All of
these charges were dropped as
part of the plea deal.
Thursday morning, he en-
tered a plea of guilty to a charge


of felony mischief and was sen-
tenced to year in the Okeecho-
bee County Jail and one year
probation. He is also not al-
lowed to have any contact with
a number of people, including
suspected gang members, said
Assistant State Attorney Ashley
Albright.
"The dismissals (of the
charges) were part of the plea
agreement," said Mr. Albright.
"There are probably 10 names
that he cannot have contact
with."
He went on to say the state
had no choice since there were
no witnesses to testify against
Medrano.

Missing man


found in Tampa


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A 78-year-old man who had
been reported missing earlier
this week has been found in
Tampa, said a detective at the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO).
Jack Rae Hanson had been
reported as missing Wednes-
day, March 5. He was found
early Thursday morning walk-
ing around in the parking lot of
a convenience store in Tampa.
"He was OK physically, but
he was confused," said OCSO
Detective Sergeant T.J. Brock.
Mr. Hanson was reported
missing after he failed to join
his wife and friends at VFW
Post #4423, 300 N.W 34th St.
According to Sgt. Brock, Mr.
Hanson's wife had called him
around 4:45 Tuesday afternoon


and invited him to meet her
and some mutual friends at the
post. Mr. Hanson told her he
would get dressed and meet
them.
The Hanson's, said Sgt.
Brock, live at Villa Margaret on
U.S. 441 N. -- about 1 mile from
the VFW Post.
Instead of going to the VFW
PQst, Mr. Hanson apparently
drove to Tampa in his 2001
white Mazda pickup where he
had visited a Veteran's Admin-
istration (VA) hospital.
"He used to go to the VA
there," said Sgt. Brock,
The detective said a con-
venience store clerk in Tampa
called the Hillsborough County
Sheriff's Office early Thursday
and told them there was a man

"All of the witnesses are vic-
tims that have either moved away
or recanted (their stories)," he
said Thursday afternoon.
Detective Sergeant Brad Stark
of the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO) arrested Me-
drano on March 14, 2007.
He said in a telephone inter-
view Thursday that this is a com-
mon problem that faces law en-
forcement officers when they try
to bring suspected gang members
to justice.
"This is the ongoing prob-
lem we have with people being
afraid," said Sgt. Stark.
Medrano was arrested along
with Jesus Torres, or 'Pelon', 23,
N.W. 35th Ave. Medrano was
also charged with another count
of criminal mischief relating to
a 'tagging' incident, but Torres

claimed that he alone did the
tagging so that charge was also
dropped against Medrano.
Torres was sentenced to five
years in prison.
Tagging is a term used to de-
scribe the painting of structures
with gang graffiti to designate the
gang's area or send a message to
rival gangs.
Following the arrest of Me-
drano last year, Sgt. Stark said 'Lil'
E' was the leader of local gang
known as Gangster Satan Disci-
ples (GSD). That gang, along with
the Varrio Boys, are two of the
larger gangs in Okeechobee.
"These two gangs are the
community's largest problem,"
said Sgt. Stark in an interview last
March. "These two gangs have
merged under the Folk Nation but
still have their own sets. They are
our largest criminal street organi-
zation."-
The March 14, 2007, charges
against Medrano stem from an
incident in which an area man
filed burglary charges against Me-


drano. Sgt. Stark said on March
11, 2007, Medrano and the man
who had filed the charges against
the alleged gang leader got into a
fight in the man's neighborhood.
The fight involved the man's fam-
ily along with Medrano and other
members of the GSD and the Var-
rio Boys, added Sgt. Stark.
The detective said the alleged
gang members were armed with
bats, pieces of pipe and rocks.
They were also all wearing blue
bandanas and blue shorts the
gang's colors..
Sgt. Stark said one witness
to the melee said there were as
many as 15 suspected gang mem-


bers at the home wanting to fight
the victim, his brother and their
mother and a cousin.
In the detective's original ar-
rest report, he stated that one of
the victims was hesitant to file
charges against the suspected
gang members because he feared
they would retaliate.
He reportedly told Sgt. Stark
that there had been death threats
made against'the family.
Sgt. Stark said Thursday that
if anyone has any information
regarding gangs or,gang activity
they should contact him at the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of-
fice, (863) 763-3117.

he met up with the man and, after
running a check, learned that he
had been reported missing.
Mr. Hanson had apparently
locked his truck with the keys
still in the ignition, said the OCSO
detective, and he could not gain
entrance into the vehicle.
Sgt. Brock said early Thursday
afternoon that Mr. Hanson's fam-

Red Cross Heroes campaign kicks off


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The American Red Cross He-
roes campaign kicked off for 2008
at the Brahma Bull on Wednes-
day, March 5, where heroes and
potential heroes gathered to show
their support.
Debbie Riddle, the Okeecho-
bee chapter manager led the
gathering which also marked the
beginning of Red Cross Month.
Traditionally, beginning back
to Franklin D. Roosevelt, Presi-
dent George W. Bush declared
March as Red Cross Month, call-
ing it a time to "honor this charita-
ble organization" and "reflect on
its remarkable achievements and
contributions to our country."
The local Okeechobee office
began as an all volunteer chapter
in 1918 when they were provided
office space in the Okeecho-
bee County's Division of Emer-
gency Management Office. The
Okeechobee chapter was added
to the Greater Palm Beach area
chapter in 2002.


So, not only is it Red Cross
Month, this year our local branch
is celebrating their 90th year of
reaching out to the community.
The American Red Cross is a
non-profit organization that is not
government funded yet is man-
dated by a Congressional Charter
to provide disaster relief.
The Heroes for the American
Red Cross is an annual fundrais-
ing campaign that helps chapters
of all sizes raise significant rev-
enue from new sources while al-
lowing chapters to increase local
awareness of the Red Cross mis-
sion within the community.
This year's chair for the He-.
roes campaign is Marnie Lauter
and co-chair is Donna Huth; both
from Seacoast National Bank.
Local businesses that have
already became heroes include
Raulerson Hospital; Pier II Resort;
Annie's Consignment Boutique
and Waste Management.
The Heroes campaign this year
will also involve an Avon fund-
raiser which will allow potential


heroes an easy way to raise their
$1,000. To be involved in the Avon
fundraiser contact the chair or co-
chair of the Heroes campaign.
Through this program indi-
viduals, schools, clubs, civic orga-
nizations, businesses, and many
other groups raise $1,000 for the
American Red Cross.
To be a Hero means to donate
to much needed services such as
disaster services, military servic-
es, international services, health
and safety services, volunteer
resources, youth services, and
many other services.
Saturday, March 8, the Ameri-
can Red Cross Okeechobee
branch will also be doing addi-
tional fundraisers for the cam-
paign including a yard sale that
will be held at the Trading Post
Flea Market from 8 a.m. until 3
p.m. Among other items from
other donors, Annie Gibbens, of
Annie's Consignment Boutique

4 OPINION


Speak Out
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. You can also e-mail
comments to okeenews@newszap.com or call 863-467-2033,
but online comments get posted faster and not all phone calls
can be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
EDITOR'S NOTE: A caller recently commented about tax money
being used on the landscaping at Okee-Tantie. According to Okee-
Tantie director Susan Baker, the county is not using taxpayer dollars
to "beautify" Okee-Tantie. The landscaping is a project of the Florida
Department of Transportation. If anyone has any questions concern-
ing the issue they can contact he Deputy County Administrator, Jim
Threewitts at (863) 763-4458.
VOTING: The caller said to vote for John McClane. I think you
spelled that wrong -- it is McCain. Editor's note: Actually the com-
ment referred to voting for the fictional character in the "Die
Hard" movies.
MARIJUANA: I don't think you can get more anti alcohol that I am,
I've seen it ruin alot of good people and it almost got me and have
seen the same with chemical drugs. Alcohol is the only legal thing I
know where you can go buy a six pack or a pint and then consume
it and go out and kill yourself or somebody else. Marijuana has been
on this earth probably since it began. If alcohol was not introduced to
the indians, just think of what might be. I'd say we might not be here
today and the population would be indian dominant instead of their
populations of the different tribes dwindling to next to nothing. But
we also brought with the alcohol our diseases, we really did a num-
ber on these people. I like to rag on the Seminoles and that's because
I'm a Hurricane, but when it comes down to it I've always supported
them and all indians.
MS. SENIOR: The Ms. Senior pageant is a fun event that the stu-
dents enjoy. It is no big deal. Just because the boys dress like girls does
not make it a drag show. It is just for the laughs. I think people should
get over it. It is not something to get so upset about.
INTOXICATION: I totally dislike alcohol and have told my chil-
dren on many occasion that if they have to "party" I would prefer
they smoke pot v/s anything else. I hate chemicals! Anything that
is man-made should not be ingested or taken into the human body
You can overdose on alcohol. You can not on pot; you will more
than likely smoke yourself sober before any type of "overdose" can
occur. Alcohol is addicting. Pot is not; there may be an emotional/
mental addiction, but there is no physical addiction. One is legal and
one is not -- it's like they have the two reversed I have seen more
destruction from alcohol addiction than I ever have with marijuana. I
still maintain that when the government figures out a way to tax culti-
vation and use it will be legalized. If only Florida would get rid of it's
draconian laws concerning marijuana and move into the 21st century
like California.
COMMISSIONERS: I have a question for the county commis-
sioner candidates. When are we going to have countywide curbside
recycling? We should have recycling boxes collected with the trash
everywhere we have trash pickup. The city has it and one small area
of the county has that service. The rest of the county should have the
same service those customers have.
PEACE PIPES: How long has weed been around? For as long as
I can remember, and I am sure the Indians were smoking it in their
peace pipes in their time. I believe it was put on this earth for a reason.
And some dumb jerk from way back in the day decided to make it il-
legal. And who ever that jerk was just deprived their own government
out of tons of money. Just my opinion.
HIGH SCHOOL: I don't see anything wrong with the Ms. Senior
-event or with the Powder Puff football games with the boys dressed
+ as cheerleaders. It's just funny. Get a sense of humor, people. Or mind
your own business. They aren't hurting anyone.
TOBACCO: I know there is a debate going on about legalizing
marijuana. But I would like to make a point about tobacco. I don't
think tobacco plants are all that dangerous. It's the chemicals they put
in when they process it and the chemicals that they put in the paper
they use to make the cigarettes that cause cigarettes to be so harmful
to your health. The chemicals are in that smoke when you inhale. I
think if you grew your own tobacco and rolled your own cigars, not
using anything except the tobacco leaf, it would not be that harmful. I
would like to see some research done on that.
LEGALIZATION: In regard to the questions about legalizing mari-
juana, from a smoking standpoint, I would be concerned that it could
lead to lung problems, just as cigarette smoking does. The human
body is not designed to breath in smoke of any kind on a regular basis.
However, marijuana may also be consumed by mixing it with other
foods. I read about a group in California baking brownies for cancer
patients.
MS. SENIOR PAGEANT: There was a cross-dressing pageant held
in a high school building. Okeechobee High School? That astounding
fact should be made public around the country. I suppose it's another
example of our sick society. If a little boy puts on his sister's dress,
you tell him to take it off, he is a boy not a girl. Why do people have
to glom onto the sickness in our society and try to have fun with it or
normalize it? And before I am told again to move up into 2008, let me
say I am trying to move along without bringing the trash I have walked
by in this life along with me.
OLD JAIL: Heritage and history is very important. I've been to sev-
eral cities and towns in my life. I've seen first hand the forced "steril-
ization" of local history and culture. Remove the past and you remove
your "links". My opinion is if the Jail can be saved, it should. There's
very little left now.

Letters to the Editor


AdvantageCare
dedicated to service
A recently published opinion
from Dr. Ronald H. Woody Ill has
tried to paint a negative picture of
local health plan AdvantageCare
and the services we provide to
our Medicare customers.
I want to reassure everyone in
Okeechobee that AdvantageCare
is dedicated to providing the high-
est quality health care resources.
A large part of being able to offer
the highest quality care comes
from contracting with the best
physicians and hospitals -- in town
as well. as in neighboring areas.
Several months ago we signed
an exclusive agreement with, ac-


cording to a survey by Solucient
100 Top Hospitals, one of the top
100 hospitals in the nation, Martin
Memorial Hospital, to provide ra-
diation oncology services for our
members in Martin, St. Lucie and
Okeechobee counties.
We are aware of the increased
distance this might require some
members to travel. However, we
are confident that Martin Memo-
rial provides the caliber of care
that our customers expect and
deserve.
To minimize any inconve-
nience to our members Advan-
tageCare offers door-to-door
transportation when necessary, as
well as accommodations for any
members who need to spend the
night away from home. For those

J.J. Hirst gets one last chance to reach the NCAA


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Stetson senior and OHS alum-
nus John "J.J" Hirst will have one
last chance to reach the NCAA
tournament this week as the
Stetson Hatters take part in the
Atlantic Sun Conference Tourna-
ment in Nashville, Tennessee.
Hirst, who led Okeechobee to
a state playoff berth as a junior,
has been denied his dream to
play in the NCAA tournament dur-
ing his- first three years at Stetson.
This year the Hatters are the third


seed. They open up the tourna-
ment this afternoon at 3:15 p.m.
local time against Gardner Webb.
The game can be seen on the in-
ternet at asuntv.com
"The tournament is going
to be very competitive. All of
the teams are pretty close. Each
team is capable of beating the
other. You can beat a team by 20
points one day and then lose the
next game to them by the same
score," he noted.
Hirst said this might be his best
chance to play in March Madness.
As a sophomore the Hatters had


a 10 game winning streak at the
end of the year and they reached
the semifinals of the tournament
before losing to Belmont.
Belmont has represented the
conference in the NCAA tourna-
ment over the past two years.
"I'm really excited about this. I
think we can do it. I'll be ready to
play," he noted.
Stetson does go into the tour-
nament on a good note as they
have won three straight games.
One of them was the senior night
last week against Jacksonville
University who had defeated


Stetson in triple overtime earlier
this year.
If Stetson makes the second
round they could play Jackson-
ville again.
"I think the team chemistry
this year is so much better. You
really need that. You have to stick
together when you're down and
when you're' ahead. The second
and third game will be pretty
tough," he said.
Hirst is also nearing a school
record for games played. Al-
though only a part time starter
during his career, Hirst has played


in 113 games at the school. If
Stetson reaches the final of the
tournament he will equal the
games played by former room
mate Gabe McMillan. He is now
a professional basketball player
in Spain.
"A lot of our success will be
our chemistry and depth. We
have a deep bench and that
should help us if we have to play
three games in three days which
is what it takes to win this thing,"
Hirst said.
Hirst added a number of guys
on the team are capable of start-


ing. He noted they have consis-
tently outscored other teams with
their bench players throughout
the year.
"We have one more shot at
it. It's a tough tournament to win
because it's one and done. Our
conference is so tough. It is so up
in the air every game. It depends
upon which team is ready to
play," he said.
"It really is up in the air on
who is going to advance," he
concluded.


OHS boys tennis team defeats John Carroll High


By Charles M. Murphy
DOkeechobee News
John Carroll High School has
a lot of freshmen on their tennis
team. Okeechobee High School
has a lot of seniors on their team.
That set up what figured to be
a good match for Okeechobee
Wednesday afternoon.
The Brahmans prevailed eas-
ily 6-1 to improve their match re-
cord to (4-1) on the season.'
"Our boys played well against
a good team," Coach Dave Ellis
said. "Our guys handle them well
as the scores show."
Bobby Spelts had the toughest
assignment in the top seed match
against Alex Nieberg. Spelts ral-
lied from one set down to defeat
the young freshmen 3-6, 7-5, 6-1.
Spelts lacked the killer instinct
for much of the afternoon. Nie-
berg continuously kept the vol-
leys going and let Spelts make a
number of unforced errors. Spelts
missed some easy overheads, vol-
leys at the net and struggled with
his serve.
Nieberg meanwhile served
pretty well and held his own
from the baseline. He was able to
break Spelts in the eighth game of
the set and then won the set with
his own serve on his second set
point opportunity.
"Bobby had a great win in
a three set thriller," Coach Ellis
noted, "He struggled through the
first two sets and then his confi-
dence picked up for a 6-1 win in
the third set."


Spelts held serve at love to
open the second set but couldn't
shake Nieberg even though he
broke his serve for the first time
in the second game. Nieberg ral-
lied to tie the set at 5-5, but Spelts
broke serve in the 12th game to
even the match.
Spelts raised the level of his
game in the third set and started
getting more first serves in, and
cut down on unforced errors.
Corey White had a much easi-
er time of it as he used his size and
strength to overwhelm Dominic
Charles, 6-1, 6-1. White admitted
he was tired from a recent trip to
North Carolina, and hadn't picked
up a racket in several days before
he took the court.
That didn't seem to affect him
as he over powered the other
player.
"I came ready to play. I was
hitting the ball a lot harder like I
should be," White noted, "I didn't
make very many errors today."
White held his serve easily and
Charles was able to hold his serve
only twice in the match. White
noted he was able to hit a lot of
first serves and had his share of
aces on his serve.
"The first four games I didn't
miss any shots. I just hit them as
hard as I could," he said. "I started
to get into too much of a hurry at
times and made mistakes."
White won the first set as he
broke Charles in the second and
fourth games. Charles took a
short lived (1-0) lead in the sec-
ond set but White came back to
