Some local teachers won't be
working in Okeechobee County
Schools next year.
The Okeechobee County
School District has began to hand
out their performance evaluations
and some teachers were told that
they would not be re-appointed
to their positions for the 2009-10
school year.
According to the Assistant Su-
perintendant Ken Kenworthy,
"principals are still making deci-
sions based on what is in the best
interest of the school and children
they serve. They are still conduct
ing classroom observations, walk
cat- through and looking at data on
rilla all teachers to make employment
recommendations. The only dead-
Page 2 line is that this task must be com-
pleted before April 17, 2009. It is
not certain how many employees
fall into this category or how many
the principal has contacted at this
time."
The teachers hold contracts
with the school district and will
continue to serve the students in
their current position until the end
,-" of the school year. Those who are
not re appointed will be replaced
if allocations for that location call
for a replacement for the 2009-10
school year.
Principals of each school make
employment recommendations
and conduct performance ap-
praisals for their employees. They
forward all employment records to
the district human resource office.
S After the records are filed and doc-
umentation is complete, the dis-
trict sends out an "intent to return"
form to each instructional employ-
ee who is offered re-appointment.

BASS

and eel grass and took away nearly all the
habitat that fish need to live, eat and breed.
But now, many of these native grasses are
coming back. Forage such as shad and grass
shrimp have exploded which means there is
plenty for largemouth bass to eat.
"If it's going to work, it's going to work
now," said Mr. Fox, who has spent the last 27
years trying to improve the fishery on Lake
Okeechobee.
The idea of beefing up the bass popula-
tion began a few months ago but until re
cently, Mr. Fox and his fellow biologists at
FWC's Okeechobee office resisted the idea
because things weren't right no forage,
little habitat and too many other predators
such as gar and bowfin mudfishh).
But, things have changed.
"We batted the idea around for a while,
and now there's enough natural forage to
support them," he explained. "We've never
stocked fish in a system with this type of
habitat. Normally, we stock lakes like Apo-
pka or Griffin."
So, in stepped Rick Stout -the direc
tor of the Florida Bass Conservation Center
in Richloam. He had room in his outdoor
ponds so the idea of stocking Lake Okeecho-
bee was now 'hatched.'
By electro shocking, Mr. Fox along
with biologists Alyssa Jordan, Corey Lee and
Brent Bachelder took 80 pair of spawn-
ing bass from the Rim Canal in the Lakeport
area. These brood fish were then taken to
Mr. Stout.
"We brought them back to the hatchery,
got them acclimated here for a couple of
weeks and once they got settled in we took

This provides the employee an opportunity
to tell the school if they want to return next
school year. If they are not returning, the re
tirement or resignation paperwork is com-
pleted.
Budget concerns are state wide and have
been cutting deep into the education system
in Florida. Governor Crist's budget shows a
modest increase but rarely has the Gover-
nor's budget ever been approved entirely by
the legislature.
As a result of the Revenue Estimating
Conference, the Okeechobee school district
is facing an additional 1.1 percent budget
reduction for the current fiscal year. Local
school officials have been informed that rev-
enue for the three year forecast horizon will
not reach the funding level experienced in
2005-06. Currently, the district is reviewing
every expenditure.
Many counties in Florida and throughout
the U.S. have had to cut programs such as
fine arts and music. According to Mr. Ken
worthy, there are currently no plans to cut
fine arts or music programs in the district.
The district is planning to continue the
current instructional programming as much
as possible, he said.

a fin clip from the pectoral fin that's about
the size of the fingernail on your little finger,"
he explained. "We sent those to a genetics
lab in St. Petersburg and they checked each
one to be sure they were pure Florida strain
bass."
He said two of the potential breeder fish
had to be removed from the others because
they had northern genes. Mr. Stout said
northern genes appear, basically, in large-
mouth from Kentucky northward.
"Back when Florida was an island, those
bass became isolated from those in the
north. Then, when the ocean receded after
the ice age and Florida became reconnected
with the U.S., some pure Florida bass began
to migrate north and some began to mi
grate to the south," he explained. "But, pure
Florida bass occur from the Suwanee River
south."
He could only surmise that those fish
with the northern strains came from private
land owners or homeowner associations
that stocked their lakes with fish from pri-
vate businesses whose fish have the north-
ern genes.
Once Mr. Stout had the brood fish, a tag
about twice the size of a grain of rice was in-
serted into their abdomens. This tag, called a
passive integrated transponder (PIT), emits
a nine-digit number. With this tag, each fish
can be identified since each PIT tag emits a
different number.
The brood fish were then put into 100
foot x 300-foot brooding ponds and allowed
to spawn. Mr. Stout said these brood ponds
are stocked at a rate of about 20 to 25 pair
per acre.
"We then look for fry about 7 to 8 millime-
ters in length," he explained. "The male will
keep them schooled up and when they rise
up we go in with a fine net seine and trans-
port the fry to a fertilized pond. They will be


kept there about three to four weeks."
Mr. Stout, Mr. Fox's former Tennessee
Tech University roommate, said over a four-
week phase he and his crew will harvest
about 60 percent of the fry.
"We don't like really big fish, primarily
4 to 7 pounders," he said. "In younger fish
(4 to 7 pounds), the egg quality is typically
much better. Once they get above that, the
quality of the egg begins to diminish some-
what."
With the fry in hand, so to speak, Mr.
Stout traveled to Lake Okeechobee where
he met up with his old college roommate
and the young bass were placed in Lake
Okeechobee.
Mr. Fox said the Cody's Cove to First Point
area was chosen because there was an ex
ceptional forage base for the bass, good
habitat consisting of eel grass, mixed with
some peppergrass and hydrilla and the fish
will be more confined.
Beginning in a couple of weeks, the lo-
cal biologists will begin electro-shocking the
area to check on the fry.
Now, remember that small fin clipping
from the brood fish? When the local biolo-
gists shock this area they will take similar
small fin clippings from young bass. Each
clipping will then be sent to the Florida
Wildlife Institute lab in St. Petersburg, where
geneticists will be able to identify the bass as
either wild or stocked.
This test will also tell the biologists from
which brood pond the fry came, as well as
which female.
Mr. Fox said the electro shocking will
continue about every two weeks until it gets
to the point they stop finding stocked fish
because they have migrated out of the area.
He went on to say the stocked bass should
reach a length of about 5 inches by fall and
will likely begin to spawn when they get to


about 10 inches.
Since this type of stocking has never been
done here before, the FWC biologists have
no idea what the mortality rate will be for
the fry.
While bass stocking is only aimed at
"bumping up" the population in an area,
it cannot be done to increase the total bass
population simply because the lake is too
big. Still, if this initial stocking is successful it
will be repeated in different areas of the lake
to increase those populations.
Unfortunately, there is little to be done for
the badly diminished crappie population. Mr.
Fox said there simply isn't the quantity and
quality of forage needed. Crappie, or specks,
are too selective in what they eat.
"Bass will basically eat anything that
doesn't eat them first," said Mr. Fox.
Crappie, however, depend on such as in-
vertebrates as chizzywinks. And, like much
of the fish populations, these invertebrates
disappeared with the hurricanes.
"There just isn't enough natural forage to
support them (crappie)," said Mr. Fox.
But, for the bass, the timing is right for
a little help from man. And this help, said
Mr. Fox, includes a new lake level schedule
and renewed interest in Lake Okeechobee's
well being from the U.S. Army Corps of En-
gineers.
"We have to have water levels that don't
impact the ecological process of the lake,
and the new lake regulation schedule is
more conducive to the ecological process of
the lake," Mr. Fox explained.
That new schedules calls for a high of
no more than 15.5 feet, and a low of no less
than 12.5 feet.

Local JROTC head won't stand trial


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The head of the Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps (JROTC) at Okeechobee
High School will not stand trial for failing to
notify authorities about the abuse of a fe-
male student there.
State prosecutor Ellen Mancini, of the
State Attorney's Office in Okeechobee, said
an agreement has been reached and Colo-
nel Lawrence Walter Saucier, 61, will have
his prosecution deferred.
"We're not asking for jail time," she said.
"He's a first offender."
The state and defense attorney Mark
Wilensky have entered into an agreement
whereby Saucier prosecuted as long as he
pays a fine and is not arrested for a violation


of the law. Saucier was arrested Sept. 17,
2008, on a first-degree misdemeanor charge
of failure to report suspected child abuse.
Mrs. Mancini said it will be left up to the
school system as to what will happen to his
teaching certificate or if he will remain as a
teacher.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Patricia
Cooper said Tuesday, March 31, that even
with the agreement Saucier will remain on
suspension without pay for the time being.
"We're actually waiting for additional in-
formation from our attorney," said Dr. Coo-
per.
She said the school system is being repre-
sented by local attorney Libby Maxwell.
Saucier, who has overseen the JROTC
program at the high school since 2003, origi-
nally entered a plea of not guilty.


Court records indicate that Sergeant Jose
F. Maldonado, who was Saucier's second in
command at the school, was arrested Sept.
15, 2008, on felony charges of soliciting to
commit sexual battery on a child under cus-
todial authority and two counts of exposure
of a sex organ.
Maldonado, 44, was arrested after he al-
legedly asked 16-year-old OHS student to
have sex with him on campus. And, on a
second occasion, he reportedly asked the
girl to have sex with him in his vehicle.
Saucier was arrested two days later be-
cause he reportedly knew about the alleged
incidents but failed to report them to school
administration or the Abuse Registry.
Arrest records show that on Sept. 12,
the victim went to Saucier at 7:10 a.m. and
told him about what happened and that she


needed to speak with a deputy. But, he did
not report the incidents to the Abuse Regis-
try or to OHS Principal Toni Wiersma.
At 10 a.m. that same day Saucier re-
portedly told School Resource Officer OHS
Deputy Timothy Higgins that he heard the
rumors over two weeks prior to that date.
He allegedly said he did not report the inci-
dent because he did not believe the rumors
to be true.
Court papers show that Maldonado asked
Saucier if he should meet with Ms. Wiersma
about the rumors, but the commanding of-
ficer told his sergeant: "Just be quiet and the
rumors will blow over."
A trial date for Maldonado has not been
set. Circuit court records show that his dock-
et call was held March 12.


Fireman accused of


hitting, choking ex-wife


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A local firefighter was arrested over the
weekend at a Stuart hotel after he was ac-
cused of hitting and strangling his ex-wife.
Joseph Sullivan, 24, was arrested Sun-
day, March 29, on a felony
charge of aggravated bat-
tery on a pregnant per- i
son. He was booked into
the Martin County Jail un-
der a bond of $5,000.
A check of jail records
Monday indicated that ta the
Okeechobee County Fire/
Rescue (OCF/R) employ-
ee is free on bond. Joseph
According to Karl Holt- Sullivan
kamp, OCF/R training offi-
cer and inspector, Sullivan has been placed
on administrative leave without pay. He
will remain on unpaid leave until the inves-
tigation into his case has concluded.
An arrest report by Deputy Vance Irick of
the Martin County Sheriff's Office (MCSO)
indicates that Sullivan was arrested in
room 1312 of the Marriott Hotel, 555 N.E.
Ocean Blvd. When he arrived on the scene,
Deputy trick said Sullivan was being held
down on the bathroom floor by two hotel
staff members.
Hotel records indicate that the room
was rented under Sullivan's name.
According to the arrest report, Sullivan
and his ex-wife became involved in an ar-
gument over her pregnancy.
The report does not indicate how long


the couple has been divorced, or why they
were in the hotel room. Deputy Irick said
the argument escalated to the point that
Sullivan struck the woman in the right
cheek with his fist, with the force of the
blow knocking her to the floor. Sullivan,
the report continued, then got on top of
her and began "... choking her with both
hands to the point that she was almost un-
conscious."
The woman managed to free herself
but Sullivan grabbed her again and started
choking her from behind, continued the
arrest report.
Hotel security officer John Cracchiolo
and Assistant Manager Joshua Morris were
contacted by other hotel guests. When they
arrived at the room they heard the victim
crying for help, stated Deputy trick.
Using a master key, they entered the
room and found the woman laying half-
way on the bed and gasping for air, the
report continued.
When Mr. Cracchiolo and Mr. Morris
forced Sullivan to leave, he allegedly con-
tinued to try to re-enter the room.
The MCSO report states the two men
wrestled Sullivan to the bathroom floor
where they held him until the deputy ar-
rived.
Deputy trick stated in his report that the
woman's right cheek was swollen, there
was bruising to both sides of her neck and
that she suffered abrasions on both el-
bows. However, the woman refused medi-
cal treatment.
Neither Mr. Cracchiolo or Mr. Morris
were injured.

Pedestrian hit by truck


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Three pedestrians were struck by motor-
ists in separate incidents over the weekend.
One pedestrian died from his injuries.
A Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) accident
report states that Derrick Jace Rogers, 23,
N.W 36th St., Okeechobee, died after he
was struck by a 2004 Dodge Ram pickup
truck at 2:25 a.m. Saturday, March 28.
FHP Corporal Katherine A. Casella stated
in her accident report that the truck was
driven by Kerrie Michelle Howard, 33, S.W.
18th Ave. Damage to her half-ton pickup was
estimated at $8,000, according to the report.
An incident report by Deputy Donald Ellis
of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO) states that he found the body of Mr.
Rogers lying in the middle of U.S. 441 S.E.
on top of the Taylor Creek Bridge. Apparent-
ly Ms. Howard left the scene and called the
sheriff's office from a nearby business.
Cpl. Casella indicated in her report that
Ms. Howard was northbound on U.S. 441
S.E. when the accident occurred, and that
the accident is still under investigation. Ms.
Howard was not injured, added the report.
Then, at 10:20 p.m. Saturday, OCSO Dep-
uty John Ashby worked another accident
where a pedestrian was struck by a motor-
ist.

Deputy Ashby's report stated the victim
apparently walked in front of a vehicle in the
400 block of U.S. 98 N. The vehicle was driv-
en by Wayne Malcolm Norris, 54, Granada
Ave., Sebring. The victim was identified as
Pedro Juarez Almaras, 40, of Okeechobee.
The deputy said even though Mr. Norris
hit his brakes and tried to avoid hitting the
victim, Mr. Almaras was struck by the car
and thrown into its windshield.
Although Mr. Almaras was awake and
coherent, he was flown to Holmes Regional
Medical Center in Melbourne with unspeci-
fied injuries to his head. Deputy Ashby said
Mr. Norris was not charged.
A third pedestrian-involved accident oc-
curred Friday, March 27, around 9:51 p.m.
at the intersection of S.E. 35th Ave. and U.S.
441 S.E. and was worked by OCSO Deputy
Adrian Rogers. The victim, Nona Azlene
Criswell, 60, S.E. 38th Ave., was flown to
St. Mary's Hospital in West Palm Beach.
She was struck by a vehicle being driven by
Thomas Ellery Atkinson, 25, of Fort Pierce.
According to Deputy Rogers, Ms. Criswell
was standing on U.S. 441 S.E. and as Mr.
Atkinson drove by in his 1999 Ford pickup
truck the passenger's side door mirror hit
the woman in the head. The deputy's report
indicates that Mr. Atkinson called the sher-
iff's office and reported the accident. Deputy
Rogers said no one was cited in the mishap.

T-shirt causes controversy
On Monday, March 30, I wore a Pro-
Life shirt to school. Pro-Life is against abor-
tions. After approximately two hours of be-
ing at school, and being seen around school
campus, I was told that I needed to change
my shirt or disciplinary actions would take
place. In the Supreme Court case of Roe
v. Wade (1973) the case held that women
have the right under various provisions of
the Constitution-most notably the due pro-
cess clause of the Fourteenth Amendment-
to decide whether or not to terminate a
pregnancy. My question is this, "Why kill an
innocent baby who in the first place did not
choose to be in this situation?" Just think -
that baby could have been the doctor who
finds a cure for cancer or a scientist who
could have found a cure for AIDS/HIV. The
court's ruling in this case was that of the
most significant in a long line of decisions
over a period of 50 years that recognized a
constitutional right of privacy, even though
the word privacy is not found in the consti-
tution ... I'm not looking for recognition or
any fame for this, but what I am looking for
is people who are willing to be as bold as I
am and stand up for what is right. Abortion
is murder to a baby who has no say so in
what happens to their life.
SUnder the school's dress code they can
keep you from wearing anything that can be
offensive to another. I know that it doesn't
go with the constitution and freedom of
speech but school are able to make their
own rules to save conflict.
Save the wearing of clothing for "state-
ments" for after school hours. School is a
place to learn, not a place to make adver-
tisement about personal beliefs, and espe-
cially when that statement has been known
to cause conflict in opinions. I for one would
not object if the school system implemented
the wearing of "uniforms" for lack of better
wording. Plain shirts, plain pants.


Submitted photo
This art was on the T-shirt which was
deemed Inappropriate for school.

I agree with what the shirt says -- abor-
tion is murder. If you believe life begins at
conception, then abortion is taking a life.
However, I understand why the school of-
ficials objected to the shirt. There is a time
and place for political and/or religious pro-
tests and school is not the right place. It can
be confusing for the students. The schools
allow some writing on shirts. You can wear a
shirt that says "Wrangler" or "Hot Topic" or
"Will trade sister for video games". You can
even wear a shirt that has a bible verse on it.
I have seen kids wear the Upward Soccer T-
shirts to school and those have a bible verse
on the back. Sometimes I think it would be
a whole lot easier if they just went to manda-
tory school uniforms as some of the public
schools in Florida have already done.
I don't agree with what the shirt says
at all, or for what it stands for. BUT ... I do
think the right to wear it should be allowed.
Having said that, when on school property,
the principal rules.
I remember in the 90's that you could
wear a shirt like that and no one in the
school would say anything, but I guess after
they had to go to court on the gay issue they
are afraid to lean to the left side again.
Uniforms would solve these problems
over what kids can wear.
I believe the student is right to be mad.
The right to free speech should be for every-
one. So now, as a person who does not be-
lieve in abortion, she cannot voice that? I do
not believe it is fair. Last year my daughter
wore a More2Life t-shirt to go off on a senior
trip and was told she had to change it before
they left the school grounds. CENSORSHIP!


County Commissioners
If more of us attended the Commis-
sioner's meetings, our voices could/would/
should be heard.
In response to the county making the
rule that driveways have to be paved over
the culverts, driving around the county and
looking at the shell driveways, I didn't see
anywhere where the pavement on the road
was breaking down. Maybe if you were driv-
ing a tractor trailer in and out of a shell drive-
way onto a road there could be damage. But
I don't see where a regular car going from a
shell driveway to a paved road is hurting any
roads. For one thing, when you are pulling
onto a road, you are usually traveling very
slow, after stopping at the end of the drive-
way to check for oncoming traffic, kids on
bikes, etc.
They should have these meetings in the
evenings when working folks can attend.
Who can afford to take off work to go to a
meeting during the day on a Tuesday?
If enough citizens expressed this wish,
it would change.
They won't listen even if you did, they
have their own agenda and it does not in-
volve what's best for the citizens.

Pedestrians hit by cars
I have heard there were several acci-
dents over the weekends involving pedes-
trians hit by cars, including one that was a
fatality. I think it is important for people to
understand the rules of the road. Pedestrians
are supposed to walk on the side of the road
so they are facing oncoming traffic. That
way they can see the cars coming and pe-
destrians should get off the road to get out
of the way when a car approaches. If you
are going to be walking at night, you should
wear light colored clothing so you are easier
to see. No driver wants to hit a pedestrian,
but it can be very hard to see people if they
are walking in the road at night and wearing
dark clothing.
People walk up and down that road all
the time at night! I don't know what hap-
pened in the situation where the man died,
but it is very hard to see them in the dark.
There have been many times I have not seen
a person until the last minute! Most people
walk right on the road, or right off of it as
they don't want to have to walk in the grass
where it is harder to walk. With dark cloth-
ing on, and no lighting, it's dangerous.


Taxed enough already
According to the Associated Press,
CBO says President Obama's budget would
produce $9.3 trillion in additional debt (four
times the deficits of ex-president George
Bush).
Obama is quickly leading us into social-
ism. We currently have people in 1,000 cities
organizing for the TEA Party Day Rally April
15. Help us grow that number to 1,500! For
more information go to: http://www.teapar-

What is your alternative plan to get the
nation out of the financial mess that previ-
ous plans have left us? In the '60's, anti-es-
tablishment student demonstrators shouted
"burn, baby, burn" as they attempted to use
tea party-like tactics to tear down the estab-
lishment. The only problem was, they had
no alternative ready in the event they suc-
ceeded. This sounds very much the same
-- stop the stimulus and bailout procedures,
and we could very well go back to the living
conditions of Bostonn 1773. It's way too
soon to judge the present plans.
At least Obama has a plan, and is taking
action. Right or wrong we do not know yet,
but it is at least action, and not just finger
pointing and fear mongering. This is what
lost you the election and will keep your party
from progressing in the future.

Slow down speeders
I think it is time that Okeechobee Coun-
ty installed the automatic cameras that take
photos of the speeding cars and then they
send them the tickets in the mail. This has
stood up in court in other towns in Florida.
It could be done. It would slow down the
speeders once they knew the cameras were
out there and they could be caught, and it
would bring in some much needed funds to
help hire more deputies and police.
I wish they would put some traffic
deputies on State Road 70 West. The traf-
fic comes over the Kissimmee River bridge
at warp speed and doesn't slow down until
they hit the city limits. It is very dangerous to
try to pull out onto SR 70 because it seems
like there is plenty of room and time to pull
out but the cars are going so fast that they
are on top of you before you know it.

OPINION


Letters to the Edito

Some teachers won't
be rehired

As President of the Okeechobee County
Education Association my phone has been
ringing off the hook this past weekend. The
district principals are starting their end of the
year teacher evaluations and "it ain't pret-
ty." Annual teachers with "exemplary" and
"highly effective" evaluations are being told
they are not re-hired for next year. When re-
ceiving that shock and asking why, they are
being told, "thank you for your services" and
nothing more.
The phone calls I have received so far are
from annual contract teachers who are from
out of state and single.
I would like these unfortunate, non-re-
newed, annual contract teachers to know
they have not been lacking in their teach-
ing. Unfortunately, districts can non-renew
teachers at the end of each of the three years
the teacher is on annual contract, and there
is no recourse.
There is a section in our teacher's con-
tract that addresses "reduction in person-
nel." However, an annual teacher who is
non-renewed for next year will not fall un-
der that section. They are out of a job. Since
some annual contract teachers are being let
go this way, there will be fewer teachers left
when the decision is made as to who will be
teaching in Okeechobee next year and who
will be laid off, if or when it comes to that.
At the recent School Board Budget Meet-
ing a presentation was made on possible
and probable cost cutting measures. One
slide reported that the district did not want
any employees to lose their job.
The rest of the lengthy presentation was
spent on other cost cutting measures. I be-
lieve more time could have been spent on
discussing how and when people would be
let go, if it had to come to that. More time
could have been spent on portraying that job
cutting most likely would occur. By spend-
ing so little time on that part of the reality it
has given many employees no warning that
some may lose their jobs.
Do you realize that by non-renewing these
annual teachers the district could ultimately
say they didn't need to lay off anyone? But
that doesn't paint the real picture.
By non-renewing these annual teachers
it ultimately is the same as laying them off
only those people have no chance of being
rehired when the final report is issued in
September and we all see just how much
money the district has. If principals are let-
ting these fine teachers go without giving
them a chance to be in a pool of possible
recalled teachers, shame on us. We tout
ourselves in this community for being warm
and inviting. We pride ourselves on our hos-
pitality. Time will tell.
I know how these people feel. That's
how I ended up in Okeechobee in the early
1980s. The district where I taught had a list


of all employees' date of hire and what their
certification was. An employee could more
clearly predict if they would be one to be laid
off. I was a home town girl, at the bottom
of the list. It was set up to be fair no matter
who you were or where you were from, and
as a result I wasn't taken by surprise.
Districts are supposed to employ a cer-
tain number of teachers to be within the
mandates of the Class Size Amendment that
the citizens of Florida approved a few years
ago. However, if a county doesn't have the
correct number of teachers and essentially
overloads the classrooms, then that district
pays a fine. I have heard that some school
districts will overload the classrooms and
pay that fine next year with the cuts to edu-
cation being so deep.
The regulations concerning annual
contract teachers are made by the state of
Florida, which brings me to what I want the
remaining teachers in this county to think
about. Do you think your job is guaranteed
because you are on Professional Services
Contract? Our state legislators are still con-
vening in Tallahassee and are making deci-
sions about education that affect all of us-
even the small town of Okeechobee. As I've
said before, "anyone who thinks their em-
ployment in a school district is not affected
by politics has their head in the sand."
The state of Florida's Constitution re-
quires the state to adequately fund educa-
tion. Our legislators have not done that for
many years and school districts continue
to suffer because of too many unfunded
mandates passed down from Tallahassee.
The citizens of this state have allowed this
to happen by re-electing these legislators.
There is still time to let your legislators know
that they've played us for too long and we
are holding them accountable for their ac-
tions.
Parents: These are hard times but your
children are only children for a short period
of time. Are you willing to let your child's
education suffer because the legislators are
clueless about the real workings of the edu-
cational system?
Employees of the Okeechobee County
School District: Are you willing to wait idly,
wondering if you will have a job next school
year? If we don't insist that the legislators
adequately fund education this legislative
session, we won't have another chance until
next March. Our children don't have time to
waste. Let your legislators hear that you are
fed up and won't take it anymore.
You can start by going to www.Make-
OurSchoolsaPriority.org
To all Okeechobee County School District
Employees: Hang on to your OCEA repre-
sentative, the road is getting very bumpy.

A new look to an old friend


By Tom Byrd
We live in a changing world. We're all
struggling to come to grips with a changing
and difficult economy. Citizens are adapt-
ing to new technology that is supposed to
change our lives for the better.
Your favorite community newspaper has
also made a change. The newspaper you're
holding in your hands no doubt this week
appears a little different than what you've
grown accustomed to over the years.
It's a major change for us, but one we're
confident our readers and advertisers will
appreciate.
Beginning with this edition, The Okeecho-
bee News is publishing in a new, modern
"compact" format vs. the traditional "broad-
sheet" format.
It reflects a design that studies have
shown is popular with readers and advertis-
ers alike.
But no matter how you look at it, it's still
your hometown newspaper!
The most noticeable difference, of
course, is the size of the product. The new
"compact" is smaller -- but don't let its size
fool you. The new "compact" offers tremen-
dous advantages over the broadsheet and
more and more newspaper companies are
starting to take notice:
The new size provides greater conve-
nience to readers. It's easier to hold, easier
to read.
The new format allows us greater
flexibility when it comes to packaging and
design. We're confident you'll like the way
content and features are organized and pre-
sented.
Most important, the new compact will
allow us to expand the use of color in the
publication. With the new format, you'll see
more color. The pages will be more exciting
and the photographs will be more vibrant.
We're also confident the new format


will be attractive to our advertisers. We rec-
ognize times are tough and businesses are
struggling to survive. We are constantly in
search of ways to improve our products and
provide advertisers with an effective and
cost-affordable way to reach consumers in
their market. We think the new format gives
our advertisers more "bang for their buck!"
The new compacts provide greater im-
pact for advertisers. Again, studies have
consistently shown readers tend to recall -
and react to advertisements in compacts
at a greater rate than they do in traditional
broadsheets.
The most common complaint we hear
from our advertisers is that there are too
many ads on a page. Ad clutter: The more
ads on the page, the less likely their ad is to
be spotted by a reader.
Compacts offer an alternative. The overall
page size is smaller. There are fewer ads on
a page, so each ad stands out much more
than if it were on a page crowded with doz-
ens of small ads.
Finally, the new compact is much more
efficient for us to produce. That's important
in these tough economic time. We've been
Okeechobee's No. 1 community newspaper
publisher for many years and we have every
intention of continuing in that role.
Despite the new look and the compact
size, rest assured everything else you've
come to expect from your Okeechobee
News remains the same. We're still your
hometown newspaper providing you with
the same great news and information you've
come to expect from us.
We hope you like our new look. Please
let us know your thoughts and suggestions
for improvements. We appreciate your con-
tinued support and look forward to serving
you in the future!

Okeechobee News adapts to changing times


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
As the oldest continuing business in
Okeechobee goes into its 95th year, it once
again adapts to changing times by switching
to a different format.
Today the Okeechobee News adopts
the tabloid format that we hope will serve
our readers with even better coverage of lo-
cal events. This is the most recent of many
changes the newspaper has gone through
since 1915.
What is now the Okeechobee News
began before the City of Okeechobee was
incorporated or Okeechobee County was
carved from surrounding counties in 1917.
On July 1, 1915 what was then the
Okeechobee Call published its first edition.
The newspaper was printed in Fort Pierce.
The first issue of the paper reported the for-
mation of the City of Okeechobee which
was to be incorporated about a month later
on June 4. There was also a full page ad for
The Okeechobee Company, which was sell-
ing property in Okeechobee Farms for prices
ranging from $25 an acre for pine land to
$100 an acre for muck land. The ad called
Okeechobee "The Wonder City of the New
South" and said the Okeechobee Company
was grading and hard surfacing 16 miles
of streets. In 1916 Benjamin and Lily Da-
vis bought the paper and brought the first
press and linotype machine to Okeechobee.
Through the years, ownership of the news-
paper changed several times and the name
was eventually changed to "The Okeecho-
bee News."
The newspaper is one of the few local
businesses still in operation that survived the
Great Depression.
A rival newspaper, the Okeechobee Mir-
ror began publishing Sept. 6, 1963, "Re-


fleeting the events of Okeechobee County."
Myrtle Hardon was the publisher and Vera
Spann was the editor. The first issues of
the Mirror were published in a tabloid for-
mat. The editor used some of the same ar-
guments being used today to explain the
smaller size. The editor stated that the paper
would be easier to read and allow advertis-
ers a better opportunity to present their mes-
sages. With fewer ads per page they would
stand out more and not be buried. However,
after three months the newspaper went to
broadsheet size pages.
The following year the stockholders of
the Mirror bought the News and the two
staffs combined to produce one newspaper.
The first edition of the News-Mirror came
out on Nov. 18, 1964. The combined news-
papers had a circulation of 3,000.
The new publisher was W L. Hulinger
and the editor was Sylvia Wolff. Mr. Hulinger,
called "Shorty" because he stood 4'8", was
the former publisher of the Clermont Press.
The local newspaper was called the
Okeechobee News-Mirror until March
11, 1965 when the name "Mirror" was
dropped.
In the 1970s the newspaper was acquired
by Independent Newspapers, Inc., which
still owns the paper.
In November of 1981, the paper, which
had always been a weekly went to two days
a week. In November of 1987 the paper
went to three days a week, Wednesday, Fri-
day and Sunday. In the early 1990s the news-
paper became the Daily Okeechobee News.
However, in September of 2008, dwindling
advertising revenues that resulted from a
troubled economy, caused the paper to cut
back to three times a week.
This latest move to compact size is one the
many changes the paper has made through

Okeechobee News
The condition of a baby who fell into
about 12 inches of stagnant water on the
bottom of an above-ground swimming
pool is apparently improving.
Detective Ted Van Deman, of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office
(OCSO), said Tuesday afternoon, March
31, that the 16-month-old boy was still list-
ed in critical condition at St. Mary's Hospi-
tal in West Palm Beach. However, he said
hospital personnel have high hopes of the
baby surviving his ordeal.
"Right now, we're concerned about in-
fection in his lungs from the murky, brown
water," said the detective. "It (the water)
was like a stagnant pond and that is what's
scaring us."
The OCSO detective said the baby and
his 3-year-old sister got out the back door
of their home in the Four Seasons Subdi-
vision around 1 p.m. Thursday, March 26.
The children then climbed onto a deck
on the pool and the boy fell into about 12


inches of water.
Detective Van Deman said the pool
had been drained, but rain water had col-
lected in the pool and had been there long
enough to become stagnant and murky.
He went on to say the children's mother
was in a bathroom inside the home at the
time, and that the grandmother was ill and
in bed.
After the baby fell into the pool, his sister
went into the home and got her mother.
Detective Van Deman said the mother
administered cardio pulmonary resuscita-
tion (CPR) until medial personnel from the
Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue Depart-
ment arrived and took over.
The baby was first taken to Raulerson
Hospital, then airlifted to St. Mary's Hospi-
tal around 3:15 p.m.
According to the detective the back
door of the home is a metal swinging door,
similar to those on a mobile home. He said
the door may have malfunctioned, which
allowed the boy and girl to go outside.
The investigation into the incident is
continuing, said the OCSO detective.

OHS rips John Carroll


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Whatever hitting slump the Lady Brah-
man softball team was in appears to be over
as the girls scored 22 runs in a shutout vic-
tory at Fort Pierce on Thursday, and nine in a
home victory against John Carroll on Friday.
Okeechobee High School's 9-1 victory
at home Friday brought out words of amaz-
ing, awesome, great, spectacular, amazing,
'boom digity', and even a new word 'fat
fabulous'.
Coach Kim Hargraves asked the girls to
use one word to describe the win, and the
girls each came up with a positive word.
The girls scored two runs in the first, two
more in the second and three in the fourth
to get the offense going against the Lady
Rams. Courtney Wilson and LeAnna Cotton
had big nights at the plate for Okeechobee,
(8-6).
Wilson had three hits, one run and a sixth
inning run scoring single. Cotton had two
doubles, scored a run, and drove in a run.


On the mound Sam Harrell was solid. She
allowed just three hits and struck out seven
in a complete game performance.
"The girls are swinging the bats well. I'm
really excited. We are right where we need
to be," Coach Hargraves noted.
Part of the reason for the improvement
is more games. This was the first week in a
month where the team had played regularly.
John Carroll has also fielded a solid team
this year so Friday's win was a quality win.
"They were better than usual. This is the
best John Carroll team I've seen in many
years. They will be very competitive in their
district. Our girls were excited to play them.
The girls were relaxed, but they had high
morale and energy for the entire game," she
noted.
Thursday Cindy Wine had two hits and
two runs scored. Taylor Douglas had three
hits, and Naomi Stevens stole five bases as
the Brahmans ripped the Lady Cobras in
Fort Pierce, 22-0.

Tennis teams take it on the chin


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Martin County continued a long win-
ning streak with impressive, 7-0 sweeps of
Okeechobee High School in both boy's and
girls tennis Monday afternoon in Stuart.
The Tigers boys squad has won 13
matches in a row and the girl's squad has
won a whopping 23 matches in a row.
The boys had a rough time with the
experienced and talented Tigers. Michael
Rinaldi blanked Okeechobee's top player
Corey White 6-0, and 6-0. Will Davenport
swept Alex Nielson 6-0, and 6-0. Matt O'Neill
dropped just one game to Max Norman,
and Scott Steger swept Kyle Lunt. Only Zach
Fowler was able to produce a competitive
match. He pushed Ryan Kealy to a third set
before falling, 6-7 (5-7 in the tie break), 6-4,
and 6-4.
Martin County swept the doubles match-
es as Rinaldi and O'Neill defeated Corey


White and Austin Willard 8-1. Davenport
and Steger swept Nielson and Norman, 8-0.
Okeechobee fell to (10-3) on the season.
Martin County improved to (13-0).
Girls tennis couldn't muster a competi-
tive match against the Lady Tigers. Lauren
Slutsky, Alex Sanguily, and Melanie Frehafer
all swept their singles matches 6-0, and 6-0.
Shaina Ragamat managed to win one game
against Jessica Colletti, and Katie Walker
won two games against Stevie Platt. Jill
Jaynes made her singles debut for the Brah-
mans.
The doubles matches were also one sid-
ed. The team of Slutsky and Colletti defeated
Katie Berger and Walker 6-0, and 6-1. San-
guily and Platt defeated Ragamat and Alisha
Wilcox, 6-0, and 6-1.
Martin County improved to 14-0 while
Okeechobee is now 9-4.
The Brahman tennis teams travel to Fort
Pierce Central on Thursday.

Okeechobee ends losing streak with Suncoast


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
More than any one player, Jarrid Gish of
Suncoast High School is the reason Okeecho-
bee High School hasn't made it to the state
regional in the past few years.
Gish had a (3-0) record against the Brah-
mans entering Friday's double header at
Okeechobee High School. He had pitched
in games at district tournaments the last
two years where the Brahmans were elimi-
nated.
That domination ended Friday as
Okeechobee knocked him out of the box
after three innings and went on to sweep a
double header from the Chargers, 7-1, and
10-3.
"Our strategy was to hit the ball on the
grass and make the other team make plays.
If they make all the plays they'll win, but I
don't think they will," Brahmans Coach Dy-
lan Tedders said afterward.
Tedders was also pleased that his team
has cut down on strikeouts and put more
pressure on their opponents defense. He
predicted good things will happen that way.
"Gish pitched on Tuesday so I was sur-
prised he brought him back. He looked
tired, but I'm happy we got to him early and
didn't let him get into a groove. He's a good
pitcher," he added.
Okeechobee got a good pitching perfor-
mance from Dustin Stokes in the opener. He
survived a first inning where Okeechobee
made two uncharacteristic errors on the in-
field.
The offense appeared ready to score early
as they loaded the bases in the first against
Gish. Brice Buckner and Stokes singles and
Jonathan Crawfordwasintentionallywalked.
Gish worked out of trouble when he retired
Adam Tewksbury on a first pitch popup to
the mound, and then caught a break when
Buckner was out trying to score on a pitch
in the dirt that bounced only a few feet away
from home plate.
Okeechobee broke through with two
runs in the third that knocked Gish out.
Buckner reached on an error and scored on
a triple by Stokes. He scored on a sacrifice
bunt by Tewksbury to make it 2-0.


Mark Weir made it 3-0 in the fourth when
he scored on a bases loaded walk to Buck-
ner.
Suncoast responded with an RBI single
by Kevin Seitler in the fifth. Other than that
Stokes pretty much had their offense under
control.
"This was a big win for us. We've played
them four times in the past and lost all four,
including districts. I wanted to come in here,
throw strikes and get the win. I was a little
tight at first, but the more I got loose the bet-
ter I threw today," Stokes noted.
Okeechobee scored two runs in both the
fifth and sixth innings to put the game away.
Big hits included a triple by Crawford and an
RBI double by Mike Minondo.
Stokes had a complete game. He scat-
tered four hits and allowed one run. He
walked three and struck out six.
In the night cap Okeechobee pounded
out 12 hits and scored six runs in the second
and four more in the fourth to rout the Char-
gers and sweep the double header.
Brice Buckner had a two and three runs


batted in. Adam Tewksbury had three hits
including a triple.
"I've been in a slump hitting lately and
its been frustrating. I've been putting the
ball in play but not hard enough and right
at people. An infield hit got me going today,"
Tewksbury said.
Tewskbury said the team noticed Sun-
coast appeared to be lifeless and sluggish in
warm ups and that the team could jump on
them early.
"We wanted to hump on them real quick
and beat them down," he noted.
Tewksbury expressed satisfaction with
his defense this year. He has cut down on er-
rors and passed balls and has become more


of a leader behind the plate, "I've been able
to separate my offense from my defense. I'm
stayed relaxed behind the plate. I think I've
bonded well with the pitchers. I know what
to say to them and how to handle each of
them."
Stokes said just because they've beaten
Suncoast in the regular season doesn't guar-
antee they'll beat them in districts. "This got
us over the hump but we still have to play
hard in Districts. We hit well and pitched
well today, I liked the performance."
Okeechobee is now (8-2 in the district
and 10-7 overall).

Lunkers ha


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Two touchdown receptions by
Eric Lodge, and 52 points in offense
were enough to put Lunkers in the
driver's seat for the Okeechobee
Parks and Recreation Adult Flag Foot-
ball Spring Championship Monday
night. Codie Story and Brad Gibson
also added touchdowns as Lunkers
(7-1) won against Beef O'Brady's
52-6.
Robert Coleman directed the
Lunkers offense to seven touch-
downs in the contest. Brian Hagan
added an interception.
Lunkers will take on Okeechobee
Outfitters (6-2) on Thursday night.
The Outfitters lost in dramatic
fashion to Ridge Runner Airboats
(6-2), 26-21 Monday night. The
Ridge Runners are comprised of
mostly 18 year olds who played var-
sity football for the Brahmans last
year. The Outfitters featured former
Brahman greats Kevin Sallette and
Tony Decarlo.
In an exciting game Sallette start-
ed off the scoring with a seven yard
run on the opening drive. Decarlo's
big kick return set up the score. Sal-
lette caught a two point pass from
Lalo Rodriquez to make it 8-0. Ro-
driquez had several nice pass plays
and rushing attempts on the night.
He played on basically one leg as he
had a left calf injury in prior games.
A long bomb from Garrett Madri-
gal to Camille Leach gave the Ridge
Runners a quick score in the first
quarter. Chris Tullio caught a five
yard touchdown pass later in the
half. However they failed on the two
point conversion attempts.
The Outfitters responded with a
touchdown pass from Sallette to De-
carlo in the second quarter. The play
was set up by a long pass to Mark
Jankowski. Leach stopped another
Outfitter drive late in the half with
an interception in the red zone. The
Outfitters led 14-12 at the half.
Defense was the order of the
game in the third quarter. The Ridge
Runners got into the red zone on
two occasions but couldn't convert
on fourth down. A 45 yard pass to
Leach and a nice grab by Nate Pol-
lard got them close on one occa-
sion but a penalty forced them into
a fourth and goal from the 30 yard
line.
Okeechobee Outfitters responded
with a 30 yard pass reception by Sal-
lette. Raymond Egan caught the two
point conversion for a 22-12 lead. It
appeared the Outfitters were headed
to victory with less than 10 minutes
to go.
The Ridge Runners wouldn't give
up as they struck quickly with a 40
yard pass from Madrigal to Leach.
Madrigal then found Rock Miller
with a touchdown pass to make it
22-18. The Ridge Runners then got
a couple of big defensive plays by
