Fire burns 18,000 acres on lake


Wildfire consumes
nearly 1,000 acres
at Reservation
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Wind shifts are a firefighter's
worst nightmare when they are
battling brush fires.
That's the problem firemen
on Lake Okeechobee are facing
as brush fires at Grassy Island
and Myakka Cut continue to
burn, and have sent burning em-
bers onto the shores in Moore


Haven and spawned more brush
fires.
Division of Forestry Spokes-
person Melissa Yunas said flames
from the Myakka Cut fire by-
passed Moore Haven RV Park on
Wednesday and headed toward
Lakeport on Thursday.
The DOF spread fire breaks
around Sportsman's Village RV
Park and other communities in
Lakeport to stop the fire.
The Grassy Island fire has
burned about 98 percent of
the fuel available in the path of
the flames. The only active pe-
rimeters were in the vicinity of
Clewiston. According to DOF,


this fire is 50 percent contained
and has burned 3,000 acres in
Glades County.
DOF also stated that the Myak-
ka Cut fire was 50 percent con-
tained as of Thursday afternoon,
but had burned 15,000 acres in
Glades County. This fire contin-
ues to spread actively through
the lake bottom and reached the
Moore Haven canal Wednesday.
Both of these fires were
caused by arson, DOF has stat-
ed.

Fire Department on Tuesday and

Teen trials part of OHS program


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee High School
teacher Quenten Pritchard had
his group of 55 law studies stu-
dents at the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Courthouse on Thursday,
May 15, where they conducted
four trials for local teens as part
of a diversion program.
The Nineteenth Judicial Cir-
cuit -- in conjunction with the
State Attorney's Office, Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice, vari-
ous high schools throughout
the circuit and the Public De-

variety of educational and dis-

Old train station in jeopardy


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
Will Okeechobee lose an-
other historic landmark? We
lost the Southland Hotel and the
old jail may be beyond restora-
tion. Now it is quite possible
we may lose the train station.
The building is owned by
CSX Transportation. They have
indicated they want to tear it
down because it is in such bad
condition.
It is currently an eye sore
and creates a bad first impres-
sion for people getting off trains
in Okeechobee. However, that
need not be the case.
Passenger trains serving
Okeechobee are operated by


Amtrak through an agreement
with CSX, who owns the track.
MostAmtrak stations are owned
by the city they serve. Possibly
some type of agreement could
be reached between the City of
Okeechobee and CSX for the
city to take possession of the
building.
Amtrak has a program called
Great American Stations where
they have entered partnerships
with public officials and local
communities to rebuild revitalize stations. Amtrak be-
lieves America's rail passenger
system is important for per-
sonal mobility, environmental
stewardship and congestion
relief.


Today, Amtrak serves more
passengers than at any time in
its history and passenger rail
stations are critical to Amtrak's
continued success.
According to Amtrak figures,
3,067 people got on or off trains
in Okeechobee in fiscal year
2007. That figure was slightly
up from the year before.
Amtrak believes that a well-
planned train station is one of
the best investments a com-
munity can make as it seeks
to expand tourism and busi-
ness opportunities. They are
committed to helping com-
munities with engineering and

grew to close to 1,000 acres on
the Reservation.
Okeechobee sent one unit and
two firemen to S. Tucker Ridge
Road and to Jones Road where
they helped protect residences
from the flames. Okeechobee
firemen were on the scene for
close to six hours.
EMT T.J Parrish's report stat-
ed the fire was contained as of
Wednesday..
The smoke from these fires
has gone miles away and led to
complaints in Lee, and Collier
counties.
Glades County EMS Director
Bob Jones said his department


has also received numerous calls
from residents who reported
they are having difficulty breath-
ing due to the smoke from these
fires.
"Please be very careful out
there, it is very dry," he added.
DOF stated that as of Wednes-
day, a total of 102 wildfires have
burned 35,422.5 acres across
Florida. Since Jan. 1, 1,256 wild-
fires have burned 53,319 acres
of state land, and 76 fires have
burned 10,997 acres of federally-
controlled land.
Also, as of Wednesday, May
14, there were 21 new wildfires
burning in Florida.


OHS scores



on FCAT top



state average


By Chauna Aguilar
Okeechobee News
The Okeechobee County
School system has received
more Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) results
as of Thursday, May 15.
"The high school results are
phenomenal. Our retake scores
surpassed the state average in
every single category," said Ken
Kenworthy, assistant superin-
tendent of schools.
Set apart from the full dis-
trict scores, the OHS scores sur-
passed the state averages.


In reading, 36 percent of
10th graders passed versus
only 16 percent at the state lev-
el. Twenty-four percent of 11th
graders passed, up 2 percent
from the state average.
Of the seniors who had to
retake the FCAT, 23 percent of
them passed them reading por-
tion compared to only a 16 per-
cent state average.
In Math, 80 percent of 10th
graders passed the FCAT. The
state average was 30 percent.

Four injured in crash on U.S. 441


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Four people, two of them tod-
dlers, were injured on U.S. 441
S.E. in Martin County when a tire
blew out on their 1994 Ford SUV
An accident report by Florida
Highway Patrol Trooper Pauline
Oneyear indicates that all four oc-
cupants were transported to area
hospitals.
Injured in the 4:43 p.m. crash


were: driver, Kendra Marie Cole,
19, Canal Point; front seat passen-
ger Courtney Lynn Cole, 19, Canal
Point; Mark Cole, 4; and, Nathan

The trooper's report did not list
an address for the two children.
The FHP report states Kendra
Cole, Courtney Cole and Nathan
Cole were air lifted to St. Mary's
Hospital in West Palm Beach and
all are were in stable condition as


of Thursday afternoon.
Mark Cole was transported
by ground to Martin Memorial
South. The report did not list his
condition.
According to Trooper One-
year's report the right-rear tire
blew out, which caused the driv-
er to lose control of the SUV in
the area of J&S Fish Camp. The
SUV then left the roadway, hit a
barbed-wire fence and flipped.


Courtney Cole and Nathan Cole
were thrown from the vehicle.
Courtney Cole was not wearing
her seat belt, and Nathan Cole
was not restrained in his child
seat, added the trooper's report.
Nathan Cole and Mark Cole
were in the back seat of the ve-
hicle.
The report goes on to state
that the accident is still under in-
vestigation.

sie.Clark, 17, U.S. 441 S.E.; Donald

Ridge; and Justin Mosteller, 17,
N.W Seventh Court.
Daryl Clark was also charged
with the misdemeanors of crimi-
nal mischief and contributing to
the delinquency of a minor (three


counts). He was booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail under a
bond of $8,500.
The other three juveniles were
also charged
with the mis-
demeanor of
criminal mis-
chief. They were
booked into the
Okeechobee
County Jail then
transported to
the Department
of Juvenile Jus- Donald Bush
tice. Detention
Center in Fort Pierce.
The four were arrested for
allegedly breaking into the flea
market then cutting a lock to try
and gain entrance to a metal car-
go container. However, a second
lock reportedly kept them from
entering the container that report-
edly held stereo systems.
An arrest report by Deputy


Rusty Hartsfield of the Okeecho-
bee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) states that he and several
other deputies were summoned
to the flea market just minutes
before midnight
Monday. The
attempted bur-
glary was report-
ed by someone
who was sleep-
ing there due to
some prior bur- -
glaries, added
the report. Jessie Clark
The report
continued by
saying that OCSO Lieutenant Les-
ter Yeates found a blue Chevrolet
pickup parked nearby in which
Mosteller was sitting. The OCSO
lieutenant could reportedly see
gloves, three flashlights and a set
of bolt cutters in the truck as he
spoke with Mosteller.
He also found a receipt from a


local department store for a soft
drink and a set of gloves. Accord-
ing to the receipt the purchase
was made Monday, May 12, at
9:29 p.m., stated
the deputy's re-
port.
Mosteller,
stated the re-
port, was acting
as a look out.
According to
Deputy Harts-
field's report,
all four teens Justin
entered the flea Mosteller
market and
Bush cut the chain and lock to the
metal container. However, due to
an internal lock they could not
gain entrance to the inside of the
container.
A witness at the flea market
stated that three masked males
were seen trying to get into the
container.

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!
SOCIAL SECURITY: Social Security is a complete different beast
than the VA -- Social Security denies everyone pretty much. It took me
three times to get it, and I was in a wheelchair at the time and the doc
told me that it was 75 to 25 that I might never get out of it. I will tell
you this, you don't actually need an attorney until your third appeal in
the denial process. You can do everything that the attorney does until
the third time, at least that's what my attorney told me and he was
right. He was already representing me on a workman's compensation
claim, WC is the devil in disguise. They will starve you out to force you
to go back to work even if your not able. I've been round and round
with them. The VA is different, if you have evidence of a service con-
nected disability and the documentation to back your claim it's going
to get approved. The best thing you can do with the VA is send off
and get copies of your service record along with a complete medical
records package -- it takes about two months to get them when you
send in the correct form. The VA reps job is a politics job and all most
of them will do is help you file. I, fortunately, never went that route
-- I did everything myself. You can also go to the DAV, VFW and a few
different organizations for help.
OUTRAGE: Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with
what's happening? Where the is our outrage? We should be scream-
ing bloody murder. We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our
ship of state right over a cliff; we've got corporate gangsters stealing
us blind; and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build
a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and
nods their heads when the politicians say 'stay the course.' Stay the
course? You've got to be kidding. This is America, not the darn Titanic.
I'll give you a sound bite: Throw all the bums out! You might think
I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But
someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore.
The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys
in handcuffs. While we're fiddling in Iraq, the Middle East is burn-
ing and nobody seems to know what to do. And the press is waving
pom -poms instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise
of the America my parents and yours truly traveled across the ocean
for. I've had enough. How about you? I'll go a step further. You can't
call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready
and willing to have.
ENOUGH: 'Where have all the leaders gone?' Where are the cu-
rious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character,
courage, conviction, omnipotence and common sense? I may be a
sucker for alliteration, but I think you get. the point. Name me a leader
who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off
our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo? We've spent bil-
lions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know
how to do is react to things that have already happened. Name me
one leader who emerged from the crisis of Hurricane Katrina. Every-
one's hunkering down -- fingers crossed -- hoping it doesn't happen
again. Storms happen. Deal with it. Make a plan. Name me an indus-
try leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our
competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that
there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese
car companies? How did this happen, and more importantly, what are
we going to do about it? Whether it's building a better car or building
a better future for our children, we all have a role to play. It's not too
late, but it's getting pretty close. So let's go to work. Let's tell 'em all
we've had enough.
CAPTAIN D'S: We were shocked to find out that Captain D's res-
-1- taurant closed: On their board was thank you for letting us serve you
'for 24 years, which we thought was an anniversary. But when we
went to eat there, signs on the door said closed. This is a loss to the
community.
