City blocks depot demolition


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
There may be some hope for
saving the old train depot. The
situation looks a little brighter af-
ter the June 3 Okeechobee City
Council meeting.
As a means of holding off
the proposed demolition of the
building, the council passed a
resolution setting a moratorium
on all demolition permits until
further action by the council. It
is the opinion of the city building
department that CSX Transporta-


tion, the owner of the building,
would need a permit from the
city to demolish the train station.
City administrator Brian
Whitehall said that while June
30 is the deadline for the tenant
to vacate the rear of the building,
no schedule has been set for the
demolition. He stated that CSX
needs a more solid commitment
and plan of action for refurbish-
ment or moving the building and
they need to know that Amtrak is
interested in saving the depot.
According to Terry Bur-
roughs of Okeechobee Main


Street (OMS), a civic organiza-
tion that has been trying to save
the depot, Amtrak is enthusiastic
about helping in the refurbishing
through their "Great American
Stations" grant program.
Mr. Whitehall distributed
copies of a letter Maureen Bur-
roughs, president of OMS, had
sent to the CSX Board of Direc-
tors. She requested a meeting in
Okeechobee with representatives
of CSX, the city, the county, OMS,

Day of the Cowboy planned


Members of the Okeechobee
Cattlemen Association are busy
making plans for this year's Na-
tional Day of the Cowboy on
Saturday, July 26. The event is
being held as part of the second
annual National Day of the Cow-
boy, proclaimed by President
George W. Bush for the fourth
Saturday in July. Last year's
event in Okeechobee was the
first such celebration east of the
Mississippi.
The Okeechobee Cattlemen
will salute the contributions
made by Florida cowboys and
cowgirls to the cattle industry
nationwide. The day's events
will begin with a cattle drive at
10 a.m. from Flagler Park East on


State Road 70 to the Okeecho-
bee Agri-Civic Center.
Spectators will see Okeecho-
bee's Big Boss, Pete Clemons,
lead local ranchers as they drive
some 50 head of cattle down
the three-and-a-half mile stretch
of road.
The arrival of the cattle will
kick off a busy day of activities
there, including a big Ranch
Rodeo with area ranches com-
peting for the top two rankings
and a chance to participate in
the Florida Ranch Rodeo in Kis-
simmee.
"We hope that many area
ranchers will want to compete
for bragging rights as to whose
team is. the best," said Matt


Pearce, Cattlemen's Association
president. "The events are excit-
ing, and they will show the en-
tire community the kinds of ba-
sic skills that keep our ranches
going." Cowboys will compete
in this year's Ranch Rodeo, with
ranchers competing in "real life"
cowboy events, including Team
Doctoring, Calf Branding, Wild
Cow Milking, Team Sorting and
a Stampede Race.
All of the teams must be
ranch-sponsored, and entries
must be submitted by June 15.
Ranchers interested in compet-
ing may contact Matt Pearce or
Robert Burney to enter. An entry
form is available on the internet
at www.okeechobeerodeo.org.

and Amtrak to tour the building
and discuss restoring it and plac-
ing it on the National Register of
Historical Places. The letter stated
that the building must be publicly
owned to receive grants.
The letter stated that even
though Amtrak provided ser-
vice to over 3,000 passengers in
Okeechobee this past year, those
passengers must wait in a Plexi-
glas shelter that does not shield

tor of emergency services for the
American Red Cross Greater Palm
Beaches Chapter and has been
with the Red Cross for 12 years.
Mrs. Blakeney spoke of the
importance of the Red Cross and
planning in advance for the possi-
bility of a disaster. Partnering with
media, businesses and knowing
what you are going to do in ad-
vance will alleviate the stress on
yourself and your family when a
disaster occurs.
She compared the Red Cross to
an army of volunteers who are as
strong as the community allows
it to be. Red Cross is completely
governed by a volunteer Board of
Directors. She went on to explain
some things that the Red Cross
does when there isn't a disaster at
hand such as responding to fam-
ily fires for instance.
It is important to have a per-
sonal plan during hurricane sea-
son where there is absolutely no
time for complacently.
She explained that there is no
magic button and no one is going
to come fulfill every need that you
have in the event of an emergen-
cy; not a non-profit organization
or the government.
The whole family should be
involved in the planning process,
including friends and family that
do not live with you. This enables
you to set up a communication
tree to avoid clogging the com-
munication lines to let your family
know that you are okay.
Mrs. Blakeney suggested that
you have one person that you
contact and then in turn they can
contact the rest of your family
from theii location.
Another avenue of communi-
+_ cation is through the internet at
www.safeandwell.org. This site
was created after Hurricane Ka-
trina.
If you have been affected by
a disaster, this website provides
a way for you to register yourself
as "safe and well." From a list of
standard messages, you can se-
lect those that you want to com-


ter goes on to say that Amtrak is
interested in the preservation of
the depot and has offered sup-
port. Attached to the letter were
various documents including lo-
cal businessman Keith Walpole's
offer to swap the depot property
for other land he owns further
west adjacent to the tracks, pic-
tures of the present passenger
waiting area and the surrounding
area, newspaper articles on the
subject and documents support-
ing Main Street's position.
Mrs. Burroughs told the coun-
cil that Elbert Batton of Lakeview
Builders has offered to serve as


municate to your family mem-
bers, letting them know of your
well-being.
On the site, concerned family
and friends can search the list of
those who has registered them-
selves as "safe and well." The
results of a successful search will
display a loved one's First Name,
Last Name, an "As of Date", and
the "safe and well" messages se-
lected.
In addition to communication,
the Red Cross is now encourag-
ing a survival kit to contain five
to seven days of food, water and
supplies instead of the previous
suggestion of three to five days.
You should have one gallon of
water per person per day in re-
serve for your family.
This is due to the hurricanes
in 2004 that had some in shelters
for an entire week. Mrs. Blakeney
encouraged people that already
know that they will utilize a shel-
ter, to volunteer and become a
part of the Red Cross team at that
shelter.
Other items that you should
have on hand in advance are a
first aid kit, prescription and over
the counter medication, infant/
child supplies and pet supplies.
You should also identify a "safe
room" in your house where you
are in the interior of your home
and have no windows.
Mrs. Blakeney explained that
.many families during Hurricane
Andrew had communicated to
her that they had survived be-
cause of having their mattress on
top of them in their safe room
during the storm.
Other things that local citizens
can do are to join the American
Red Cross as a volunteer Disaster
Action Team (DAT) or as a part of
the Community Emergency Re-
sponse Team (CERT).
All Red Cross volunteers re-
ceive free health and safety train-
ing and above all receive that great
feeling of knowing that they have
helped better someone's life.

Mr. Whitehall said he met with
CSX officials a year ago and they
did not have a key to the building.
They just had to walk around the
outside. He said CSX officials he
has talked to recently have not
been to Okeechobee.
Mr. Burroughs was of the opin-
ion that CSX wants the property
for some other use.
Councilman Watford said he
understood the business decision
of CSX, since the railroad consid-
ers the building a liability. How-
ever, he added that if the city ac-
cepts the building, the city would
relieve CSX of any liability.

Deputy Potter stated in his re-

Deputy Potter stated that grass


clippers were apparently used to
cut wires and copper tubing.
The homeowner estimated the
damages to be between $2,000
and $3,000.
All of the appliances were re-

The homeowner said the
house was unoccupied because
he was in the process of refur-
bishing the home.


Corrections


The Sports People column in
the Wednesday paper stated that
"free physical will be given at
Lakeshore Pediatric this Saturday
for all athletes wishing to com-
pete in fall sports at OHS". This
was in error. The office had previ-
ously planned to do physical for
a small charge by appointment
only on that date, but it was can-
celled more than a week ago.
A recent letter to the editor
stated that the feed business that
rents storage space at the old
train station would be put out of
business if the train station was
demolished as planned. This was


also in error. The business has
made arrangements for storage
space elsewhere.
In a story on page 1 of the
Wednesday, June 4, Okeecho-
bee News under the headline of
"Deputies vote to join union" it
was stated that 50 deputies from
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office voted in favor of the union
while 18 were against it. In actual-
ity, the vote was 32-18 in favor of
joining the Fraternal Order of Po-
lice. There was a total of 50 depu-
ties that voted. We apologize for
any confusion or inconvenience
caused by the errors.

Five charged in theft of newspaper box


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Five local individuals were ar-
rested for their alleged connec-
tion in the theft of a newspaper
box from a Treasure Island busi-
ness.
Arrested early Tuesday were:
Benjamin Dunnam, 20, N.E. Sev-
enth St.; Kevin Allen Wolf, 23,
S.E. 26tf St.; Justin Brian Wolf,
19, S.E. 26th St.; Brian Matthew
Arnold, 21, N.E. Seventh St.; and
Kayla Danielle Crowley, 19, N.E.
Seventh St.
Kevin Wolf, Justin Wolf and
Arnold were all charged with
grand theft and booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail under
a bond of $2,500 each. Dunnam
was charged with grand theft and
no valid driver's license. His bond


was set at $3,000. Crowley was
also charged with grand theft, but
was released on her own recog-
nizance.
An arrest report by Deputy
Justin Akins of the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office (OCSO) in-
dicates that Crowley was not with
the men when the alleged crime
took place. She was, however, in
the vehicle with them when they
were stopped by Deputy Akins,
stated the report. The men had
reportedly picked her up at Justin
Wolf's house and were taking her
to her home on N.E. Seventh St.
Deputy Akins stated in his re-
port that at 12:34 a.m. on Tuesday,
June 3, he stopped a black Ford
pickup truck because it did not
have a working tag light. Although
Dunnam was driving the truck, he
is not the registered owner, stated


port.
The OCSO
report goes on
to state that as
the deputy was -C
talking with
Dunnam, he
noticed that ev-
eryone in the Kayla
truck seemed to Danielle
be very nervous Crowley
so he called for
back up. Deputy Donald Ellis re-
sponded to the scene in the 2000
block of S.E. 40th Ave.
After his arrival, Deputy Ellis
asked for and received permission
to search the truck. In the bed of
the truck the deputy reportedly
found a blue Okeechobee News
newspaper box. The box is val-
ued at $350.

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!
YEARBOOK: Regarding the student who missed picture day and
had his name left out of the year book, if your child were active in
sports, debate, drama, and a whole host of other activities in the
school, his/her name would be all over the yearbook. And our ques-
tion is this: Why weren't they at school on the appointed day?
VIKING: Have the people who live out at Viking thought about or-
ganizing a neighborhood watch group? Maybe they could have some
of the folks out there become Auxiliary Deputies so they could at least
hold the vandals until the deputies can get there.
ATVS: I live in the Viking (prairie) and I must say thanks to the
police for their presence in the Viking over the holiday on Monday.
They were super. We could sleep, no gunshots, and riding of ATVs all
night, 3 a.m.-6 p.m. Most weekends all they do is drink beer, do drugs
and .cause trouble. They are not kids as reported in Speak Out, they
are 18 years old and up. As for the man who got in trouble. If they
were not on his property this would not have happened. His property
is out of the way. They had to visit his property for that to happen. I
am only sorry the alligators did-not get them. They are always stealing
stuff in the Viking. My sympathy goes out for him. I have a piece of
property at the end of my street with a no trespassing sign and they
make a circular driveway out of it. We are looking out for them. They
all know about the police situation out here. The sheriff put a big sign
on the Peavine Road, the 101 Road, that still don't help. Only the po-
lice presence will help. If I had known what I know now, I would not.
have spent my life savings to build a house in the Viking. If you go to
town and people ask you where you live and you say the Prairie, they
look at you different as if you are from Mars. But the Viking is now a
community with good people living there. I lived in Ft. Lauderdale
and thought moving to Okeechobee was a good place to retire. But
not so at all.
WATER: Has anyone heard about this new contraption that
stretches your gas use by-using water power? Has anyone tried it?
They claim it will increase your gas mileage by 40 percent. That would
really make difference with, the gas prices so high!
DEPOT: I am so happy to see people rally around the idea of fixing
up the depot. I drive by there nearly every day and I would love to see
it fixed up. It would make'a much better impression on those who ar-
rive on the train. Even people riding the train and just passing through
would see our community has some pride. Let's turn our old depot
into a showplace to be proud of.
ENTERTAINMENT: If I had the money, I would invest in enter-
tainment in Okeechobee County such as a skating rink, water park,
putt golf and a new movie theater. So if I win the lottery you will see
me do that. But surely there is a businessman with some vision who
doesn't have to wait for a lottery windfall. People don't want to drive
to Orlando or the coast. They would support local entertainment if it
was available.
GAS PRICES: I noticed today that gas is back down to $3.89 a
gallon and I thought, wow, it dropped over 4 cents in the past couple
days. Then I wanted to slap myself for thinking something so stupid
because all that means is that its getting ready to go up even more in
the next few days, possibly.to.$4 a gallon. My question is, how long are
+ we going to let the government or whoever is in charge of gas prices,
jerk us around. They are training us slowly to adjust to the raising gas
prices, and everything else that is going up, but yet they don't raise our
pay wages. When are we finally going to get sick of it and say enough
is enough. With the economy how it is, we can't afford for gas to
keep going up, does the government not realize that they are the ones
responsible for pushing the economy even further into a depression?
And it seems they are doing it more quickly every day. The economy
is in trouble and it's only going to get worse unless someone in charge
wakes up and unfortunately they aren't really affected by the economy
yet, so they will not realize what's happening until it starts to hit home
for them and by the time that happens what will happen to us average
people? I don't know about everyone else, but I can't afford to pay $4
a gallon for gasoline, plus pay for my home, and groceries, etc. I need
a new car desperately, but'if I got one, I could afford the payments, but
then I wouldn't be able to drive it due to gas prices. Our officials are
making it impossible to live. We need to take a stand.
GAS PRICES: The high price of gasoline is hurting everyone. Peo-
ple don't have enough money to drive to and from'work. Wages are
not going up because the employers are hurting too, The high price of
gasoline is hurting their businesses. They are having to lay people off
because they don't have enough business. How can they give a raise?
It's not going to happen. Something has got to give. If gas prices are
going to stay high, we need alternative forms of transportation such
as electric cars, trains, bicycles and horses. Our public officials need to
jump on this and start making things happen or we are going to be in
another depression.
OBAMA: Well now that the primaries are over and Barack Obama
will be the Democratic nominee, what do you think they should do
about Hillary Clinton? Should they let her be the VP?

OCRA season is winding down


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
The two top teams in the
OCRA Majors division, mostly 11-
12 year old boys, were successful
Tuesday night in a post season
tournament at the Okeechobee
Sports Complex.
Riverside National Bank de-
feated Nuvee Enterprises, 7-5 in
the opening game. Riverside fin-
ished second in the division this
year.
League Champion Car Quest
-improved to (17-2) as they de-,
feated CIS/PAL, 10-3. The division
had seven squads this year, one
less than needed for two all star
teams this year. Normally the two
teams would have played a post
season tournament to get ready
for all stars.
The league decided a post
season tournament would be a
good way to have the all star play-
ers remain sharp for their district
tournament, scheduled for the
week of June 21 in Avon Park.-
They put the four top teams in
the tournament which lasts until
Friday night.
Riverside got a two run double


from Mason Joyner, and two runs
batted in from Cutter Crawford to
defeat Nuvee Enterprises. Craw-
ford also came in from the bull-
pen with the game on the line,
and the bases loaded, nobody
out, and didn't allow a run to
score.
"The other team swung the
bats well but we hung in there,
and I put my closer in and he got
the job done," Coach Neal Craw-
ford said.
Crawford drove home the first
run of the game with a double in
the first which scored Tad Nor-
man. Garrett Thomas followed
with a sacrifice fly.
Riverside went up 3-0 in the
second as Kevin Coleman reached
on a fielders choice, stole second,
tagged up on a long fly ball, and
scored on a wild pitch.
Nuvee scored twice in the bot-
tom of the second as Allen Leitner
and Dalton Collins scored on wild
pitches.
Riverside scored twice more
in the third thanks to a double
by Norman and an RBI single by
Garrett Thomas.
Nuvee made it 5-3 in the fourth


as Zane Moreland singled and
scored on a wild pitch.
Nuvee loaded the bases in
the bottom of the fifth with three
straight singles. Two runs scored
on bases loaded walks to tie the
game at five.
Crawford came in and retired
Kyle Bryner in a play at the plate,
and struck out the next two bat-
ters.
Mason Joyner's two-run dou-
ble in the top of the seventh drove
in the winning runs.
Cravwford said he had a good
defense behind him in the crucial
situations.
"I just said to myself, throw
strikes and let my defense work.
I have a -pretty good defense be-
hind me," he said.
In the nightcap Car Quest
showed why they were cham-
pions with a big win. The first
three batters in their order, Seth
McWhorter, Brandon Ball, and
Otto Ramirez combined for six
runs scored, five runs batted in
and four extra base hits.
Car Quest scored two runs in
the first on a single by McWhort-
er, a double by Ball, and RBI


ground outs by Ramirez and Eli-
jah Finney.
CIS/PAL scored a run in the
second on three walks and a hit
batsman. Samuel Rogers scored
from third when Billy Allen was
hit by the pitch.
Car Quest broke it open four
runs in the third. Ball had a two-
run double and Ramirez an RBI
single.
Branson Butler added an RBI
double in the fourth during a two
run rally.
Ramirez added an RBI triple
during a two run fifth.
Butler also made a nice run-
ning grab on a long drive by Adam
Davis in the third.
Finney also had a web gem
when he scooped a line drive off
the top of the grass off the bat of
Trey Kissam in the fourth.
CIS/PAL scored twice in the
seventh thanks to a couple of
fielding errors.
Parker Thomas retired all six
batters he faced in relief for Car
Quest, with two strikeouts.
Butler added a scoreless inning
of relief. McWhorter picked up
the win with two solid innings.
