Sheriff: 'Furloughs won't work'


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Bring up the idea of furlough-
ing employees and the customary
smile on Paul May's face quickly
disappears and is replaced by a
steely glare.
"I don't favor a furlough. That's
out of the question," said the nor-
mally affable Okeechobee County
sheriff. "If county employees have
to take a pay cut, I think it's only
fair people at the sheriff's office


take a pay cut also. But a furlough?
That's not going to work for on-
the-road deputies."
Having county employees take
a mandatory furlough is just one
of the cost-cutting ideas being dis-
cussed by the Okeechobee County
Board of County Commissioners.
The idea is to have every county
employee take one day off each
month for the next five months
without pay. In essence, this would
shut down county government for
one dav a month


For the sheriff's office, this
would savethecounty$189,717.41.
For county employees who do not
work for other constitutional of-
ficers, the measure would save
$172,000.
"I can't do that," said Sheriff
May. "If I have six deputies sched-
uled to work and furlough one to-
day and one calls in sick, then I'm
down to four. That's not fair to the
deputies."
So Monday, May 4, all of the
countv's constitutional officers


and government leaders met at
the Okeechobee County Public Li-
brary to try and find ways to save
money. And though no defini-
tive measures were taken, Sheriff
May said the meeting opened up
"good dialogue" between the con-
stitutional officers and the county
commissioners.
"We discussed cutting where
er possible-to start at the bottom
and cut what we can," said Sheriff

May. Among the cost-saving measures dis-
cussed were employee furloughs, pay re-
ductions and layoffs. Although layoffs were
discussed, the sheriff emphasized that he
has not been asked to cut staff.
The sheriff said there was talk about a 3
percent pay reduction which, for the sheriff's
office, is basically taking back the 3 percent
raise given to employees below the rank of
lieutenant last year.
Total salaries paid to the 225 OCSO em-
ployees is $8.1 million annually. That figure
does not include insurance, benefits, Social
Security or retirement.
"But, the consensus was to try and cut
other areas rather than the salaries of em-
ployees," he said. "I told them, if you cut

the salary of the employees it's telling them
it's their fault. Start somewhere else, look
at some other spending-maybe put some
projects on hold."
Sheriff May and Major Noel Stephen said
Monday afternoon they've already begun
pinching pennies where they can. Among
those measures are turning off some of the
lights at the sheriff's office, not letting cars sit
and idle, changing the oil in patrol cars every
5,000 miles instead of every 3,000, charging
a fee for those booked into the jail, which
has raised over $30,000 this year, and send-
ing only one car on a call unless the deputy
knows a backup will be needed.
"We have already stopped serving meat
for breakfast at the jail and that's saving be-
tween $11,000 and $12,000 a year," added
Sheriff May.
One thing that would help the sheriff save
$7.5 million a year would be to privatize the
jail.
"I'm not contemplating not running the
jail," he said. "In my experience, counties
that have done it have gone back because
it's cheaper."
And although he's had to absorb salaries
for the Narcotics Task Force, the sheriff said
there would be no way he would do away
with that unit simply to save money.
"The last thing I would do is cut the task
force," he said without hesitation.
The sheriff's office budget this year is
$17,586,040. Included in that budget is the
jail; 256 inmates as of Tuesday, May 5; court-
house security; detectives; narcotics task
force; deputies; and, administrative staff.

Motorcyclist killed in crash


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
A motorcyclist was killed early Sunday
morning in a two-vehicle accident on U.S.
441 S.E.
Pronounced dead at the scene was Da-
vid H. Purdy, 44, of Okeechobee, stated an
accident report by Deputy John Ashby of
the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office.
Mr. Purdy was pronounced dead at the
scene by emergency medical personnel
from the Okeechobee County Fire/Rescue
Department.
According to Deputy Ashby's report,
Mr. Purdy was westbound on U.S. 441 S.E.
around 2:17 a.m. Sunday, May 3. He was
riding a Suzuki VL-800 motorcycle.


The report states as Mr. Purdy was ap-
proaching a driveway in the 4500 block of
U.S. 441 S.E. a vehicle driven by Donald G.
Bryant, 62, Okeechobee, made a left turn
into the driveway in front of him.
Deputy Ashby said Mr. Bryant turned
his Ford F-350 in front of the oncoming
motorcycle, and the motorcycle struck the
pickup truck in the passenger side.
Upon impact, Mr. Purdy was thrown
from his motorcycle and it caught on fire,
the deputy's report stated.
The report does not state if Mr. Bryant
or the passenger in his car, Julie Hulsey, 44,
Clearwater, was injured.
Also, the report does not indicate if any-
one involved in the crash was cited.


Man charged with attacking wife


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was arrested and
charged with attacking his wife, stealing
her purse and then escaping by swimming
across the Rim Canal.
Willie Joe Harris III, 30, U.S. 441 S.E., was
arrested Sunday, May 3, on a felony charge
of robbery bysudden snatching. He was also
arrested on misdemeanor charges of bat-
tery and domestic battery.
He was booked into the
Okeechobee County Jail
under a bond of $30,000.
Harris was arrested later
that day in connection with
an April 28 incident when
he first reportedly attacked
his wife. He was charged
with the misdemeanor of Willie Joe
domestic battery. His bond Harris
on that charge was set at
$10,000.
Arrest reports indicate that Harris and his
wife have been separated for a few weeks.
In an arrest report by Deputy Robbie
Lamb, of the Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office (OCSO), the victim and a male friend
were walking into a convenience store at the
intersection of S.E. 34th Ave. and U.S. 441
S.E. shortly after 5 p.m. Sunday.
As they approached the door of the store
Harris reportedly came up behind the vic-

tim, grabbed her purse and snatched it off
her shoulder, stated the deputy's report. Her
male friend then came to her aid and began
to fight with Harris.
At some point, Harris apparently took off
and ran across U.S. 441 S.E. with the man
chasing him. Harris then jumped into the
Rim Canal and swam to the other side, the
report continued.
When Harris reached VFW Post #10539,
3912 U.S. 441 S.E., he reportedly swam back
across the canal and tried to get a ride. But
when the man from the store approached
him, Harris again fled and ran to a residence
in the 4100 block of U.S. 441 S.E., stated the
arrest affidavit.
Deputy Lamb stated that he arrested Har-
ris around 6:45 p.m. Sunday when he saw
him walking along U.S. 441 S.E.
Another arrest report by OCSO Deputy
Corporal Timothy A. Higgins indicates that
on Tuesday, April 28, Harris hit and pushed
his wife and "... ripped the purse from her,
tearing both handles of the purse off."
Even though several OCSO deputies
searched for Harris they were unable to find
him at that time, stated the report by Cpl.
Higgins.

munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!

U.S. May Revive Guantinamo
Military Courts
The Obama administration is moving
toward reviving the military commission
system for prosecuting Guantanamo detain-
ees, which was a target of critics during the
Bush administration, including Mr. Obama
himself. Officials said the first public moves
could come as soon as next week, perhaps
in filings to military judges at the United
States naval base at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba,
outlining an administration plan to amend
the Bush administration's system to provide
more legal protections for terrorism sus-
pects.
Having rights-What a novel concept.
You know someone could start a whole new
country on that idea. But then some others
would come along and mess it all up.
Interesting how we grant American
rights to insurrectionists and terrorists. Yet
our rights are ignored.
For a majority of the detainees no
charges have been proven, or even brought
against them. What of our rights have been
ignored by our government? Should we low-
er our moral standard to that of those we are
at war with over their low moral standard?

County considering
furloughing employees
Days off with no pay is not something
most employees would look forward to.
Most are living paycheck-to-paycheck as it is.
I don't know what the county is going to do,
but they have to find ways to cut expenses.
I'm sure the county won't shut down
the jails or fire department...l think they have
enough sense to juggle the furlough days for
those employees around. It's tough times
right now and Okeechobee County isn't
immune from what is happening globally!
Would you rather see the county go bank-
rupt?


Swine flu
WHO Spokesman Gregory Harti stated
"I ... would like to remind people that in
1918 the Spanish flu showed a surge in the
spring, and then disappeared in the summer
months, only to return in the autumn of 1918
with a vengeance. And we know that even-
tually killed 40 million to 50 million people."
Something to think about.
Parents of children or adults them-
selves need to take proper precaution if
they are ill so that this does NOT spread
to others. School, Walmart, Church, etc. It
is up to those who are not well to prevent
the spreading. So PLEASE if you do not feel
well or even think you are becoming sick do
NOT go into public and take the necessary
precautions to protect yourself.
This is from the Center for Disease
Control: Stay informed. This website will be
updated regularly as information becomes
available. Influenza is thought to spread
mainly person-to-person through coughing
or sneezing of infected people. Take every-
day actions to stay healthy. Cover your nose
and mouth with a tissue when you cough
or sneeze. Throw the tissue in the trash af-
ter you use it. Wash your hands often with
soap and water, especially after you cough
or sneeze. Alcohol-based hands cleaners
are also effective. Avoid touching your eyes,
nose or mouth. Germs spread that way. Stay
home if you get sick. CDC recommends that
you stay home from work or school and lim-
it contact with others to keep from infecting
them. Follow public health advice regard-
ing school closures, avoiding crowds and
other social distancing measures. Develop
a family emergency plan as a precaution.
This should include storing a supply of food,
medicines, facemasks, alcohol-based hand
rubs and other essential supplies. Call 1-800-
CDC-INFO for more information.
While there being no cure is accurate,
that doesn't mean it isn't treatable. There
is no cure for cancer either, but do we tell
people "just let it run its course" when there
are several treatment programs for it? There
are four drugs that treat the seasonal flu ef-
fectively, two for the H IN 12009 virus. While
our bodies do have things to fight this off,
because this is a new strain, many people's
bodies are using too many, thereby kill-
ing themselves. So saying "let this run its
course" can be extremely dangerous and
even deadly in a lot of cases. If not treated
with the proper medication, this can kill.

At church today, there was hand sani-
tzer on the table as we came in, and they
made an announcement that if you are not
feeling well, you should not come to church,
to avoid the potential spread of germs.

50-1 odds on derby winner-
glad the little guy won!
The story of the Kentucky Derby win-
ner-trained by a former rodeo rider who
drove the
horse from
New Mexico
to Kentucky
himself
(despite a
broken leg)
- is great.
Now, if we
had just had
some mon-
ey bet on
that horse
with the odds at 50-1. I love it when the cow-
boys' horse beats the high-price race horses
owned by the sheiks. If he wins the triple
crown we will surely see a movie about this
horse.
It was wonderful to see that little colt
just open up and turn it on. $9,500 vs $2.1
million from Dubai. Couldn't ask for any-
thing better. Actually made me feel better
about that little $500 calf I bought for my son
for the Okeechobee Youth Livestock Show
next year as opposed to the $1,500-$2,000
ones that are available.

County staff downsized
This is what I see happening: hurricane,
flood, badly beaten roads or worse washed
out, now we have spent tons of money on an
Agri Civic Center that gets used a handful of
times through the year. Here's an idea: Shut
down the ag-center. Then deduct money from
our commissioners' pay for they do the least
for us at this moment. Get rid of any secretar-
ies that sit and file their nails all day and hire
someone who is going to work and complete
a job when we are in need. I have no personal
favors in any of this, but being I have seen how
this county is run and who is in whose back
pocket-or should I say check-book-we
all should know that in a time of emergency
if we don't depend on ourselves then we are
doomed. Depending on our county would be
like depending on a toddler to make breakfast
and hold down a job.

Church goers more likely to
support torture, survey says
Interrogation is one thing but torture is
another.
Have you ever seen the movie Dirty
Harry? The bad guy kidnapped a young girl
and buried her alive. She only had a few
hours of air. Harry caught the bad guy alive
and as far as the knew the girl was still alive
but if he didn't find her before the air ran out
she would die. The question is was it more
important to protect the bad guy's civil rights
or more important to find the girl? Harry's
choice was to inflict pain on the bad guy un-
til he told him where the girl was. The judge
-- in the movie -- didn't agree.
Our country is founded upon innocent
until proven guilty. According to our law of
beyond a reasonable doubt, it is more im-
portant to let a guilty party go than convict
an innocent person. Every person has a
right to a trial. As smart as Dirty Harry was,
he didn't have the right to be the judge and
jury. Take away that principle, and we might
as well do away with our court system and
just kill each other in the streets.
You know the maggot has your child
hidden. You know he's laughing at you. And
you know your child will be dead (and he
promises most painfully) in 30 minutes un-
less you do something. At this point, I have
no problem with my decision.
Here's another scenario -- there's a nu-
clear bomb hidden in a major U.S. city-- and
the FBI captures a member of the terrorist
cell that planted the bomb. They are brag-
ging that millions will die. How far should
the interrogators go to try to find out the
location of the bomb? Would you be OK if
they used truth drugs? Torture? In these ex-
treme situations when lives hang in the bal-
ance, is torture understandable? And if so,
who makes the call about when it is OK and
when it is not OK? Or is it never all right and
we acknowledge that butwe are human and
sometimes we're going to do it anyway and
then face the consequences afterwards be-
cause we can't stand to let that child die or
that bomb go off without doing everything
humanly possible to prevent it?
If it were my child, I would do whatever
it took for them to be safe. So in saying that,
that is just what our brave soldiers are do-
ing for us. They feel the same way about the
U.S.A., They are there to serve and protect
and that is what they are doing.

We want your waste.


Hazardous waste amnesty
day is Saturday, May 9

By Dan Culbert
IFAS Extension Horticulture Agent
Spring cleanup chores can take hom-
eowners from the garden into the shed. The
result can often lead to the discovery of a di-
saster waiting to happen.
This Saturday Okeechobee County's Sol-
id Waste Department will be offering to take
your tired, and your poor, those struggling
masses of unknown containers and bags of
chemicals, all yearning to be free. All you
have to do is get them to the county's vehicle
maintenance facility at 206 NW 9th Avenue,
this coming Saturday, May 9, from 9 a.m. to
3 p.m., and be rid of these problems.
And the county will get to save money
too. By keeping these hazardous materials
from leaking into the soil and water, and
keep them out of the landfill, expensive en-
vironmental cleanup costs will be avoided.
This information is about the things to
bring to Amnesty Day, and how to safely get
them there.

Unknowns
Several years ago, I was employed by a
research facility. My job included disposing
of unused and unknown lab chemicals and
pesticides. Over the years, containers were
shoved to the back room, cracks in bottles
allowed leaks. Bagged and boxed contain-
ers became moist and caked, and labels
became unreadable. Since we had no idea
what some of these materials were, they had
to be considered unknowns.
To a hazardous waste contractor, un-
knowns mean "worst case scenario."
Technicians get dressed up in all kinds of
expensive protective gear, take samples and
run expensive diagnostic tests to try to find
out what it is, then place them into special
(expensive) containers that will take these
problems to their final destination-big ex
pensive incinerators, or big expensive land
fills.
Did I tell you that disposing of hazardous
wastes is expensive?

Preventing waste
Prevention can be practiced by buying
only what is needed for the immediate fu-
ture. Buying more than what is needed is
cheaper but only if the entire container is
used. And chemicals will break down or
become contaminated if not stored properly
under cool dry conditions. Excess chemical
products that someone else could use could
be given away or returned to the supplier.

What to bring
Hazardous wastes can include the obvi-
ous nasties such as pesticides, cleaning sol-
vents, pool chemicals, or petroleum prod-
ucts. But it can also include less obvious
sources of chemical contaminants:
Oil-based paints (that are cleaned up
with turpentine or mineral spirits-flamma-
ble). Latex water-based paints can be left
open to completely dry out, and then placed
into the regular garbage pickup.


UNIVERSITY OF


FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

Mercury-based thermometers or ther-
mostats (with the silver stuff, not the red
stuff).
Weed and feed fertilizers (the ones that
are as hard as rocks and have been sitting in
the back of the shed for many years).
That "secret supply" of insecticide that
you got from your friend who used to work
for a pest control company, who gave it to
you "just in case."
Batteries -both for vehicles and for
flashlights contain caustic chemicals or
heavy metals that can contaminate our en-
vironment.
If you have a leaker, put it into a bucket or
heavy duty plastic bag. If the label is intact,
use a permanent marker to label the bag or
bucket with the name of the product. Care
fully place your contributions to Amnesty
Day into the back of the pickup truck or the
trunk of the car.
Do not transport these materials in the
cab or on the floor where passengers may
contact this stuff.
Drive extra carefully to the County's ve-
hicle maintenance facility, 206 N.W. Ninth
Avenue from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday,
May 9.
Here are a few other notes about Satur-
day's Amnesty Day:
Used tires will be accepted, but only
four per household.
No propane tanks can be accepted.
(Propane vendors such as Glades Gas will
be happy to accept these items)
Businesses that have hazardous mate
rials to dispose of may also bring them to
Amnesty Day, but expect to pay for hazmat
disposal.
If you have any questions about the
County's Amnesty Day, call Russell Rowland
at 863-763-1811.
If you need additional information on
reducing or handling hazardous waste, give
your County Extension office a call (863) 763
6469, visit our webpage at http://okeecho-
bee.ifas.ufl.edu, email us at Okeechobee@
ufl.edu or stop by our office at 458 Hwy 98
North.
Go Gators!

Special note for residents
of Treasure Island
In Treasure Island, a group of local vol-
unteers will pick up hazardous waste items
for elderly persons and other residents who
cannot transport their own hazardous waste
items to the Amnesty Day site. Treasure Is-
land residents can put their hazardous waste
items out by the road early Saturday morn
ing for pickup. Pickup will start around 8
a.m. Call Jay Davies at (863) 467-8683 if you
have any questions or special needs or if you
would like to volunteer to help.

Common sense urged in


dealing with swine flu


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
There is now one "probable case" of
swine flu in Okeechobee County. According
to Frank Krupa with the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Health Department, the possible victim
is n adult. He would release no further in
formation on the person. Mr. Krupa said his
department is awaiting results of tests being
conducted by the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC) to verify whether
or not that person actually has swine flu. He
did not know how long that would take.
With reported cases of swine flu grow
ing more numerous, people should exercise
common sense and not panic. A toll free
number, 1-800-342-3557 has been estab-
lished by the Florida Department of Health
to answer questions. The line is open from
8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Mr. Krupa advises people to stay home
from school or work if they feel ill. They
should go to their health care provider. He
said health care providers have been trained
to treat people who might have swine flu.
There is no vaccine to prevent swine
flu. Therefore, precautions should be taken
against catching it. Mr. Krupa said it is very
important to wash your hands frequently for
at least 30 seconds at a time and cover your
mouth when you cough.
Okeechobee County Superintendent of
Schools, Dr. Patricia Cooper, said that the
schools are following the lead of the health


department and taking a common sense ap-
proach, urging students to wash their hands
frequently and to cover their mouths when
they cough. The symptoms are similar to
other forms of flu. However, there are sever
al emergency warning signs in adults that re-
quire urgent medical attention. They include
difficulty breathing or shortness of breath,
pain or pressure in the chest or abdomen,
sudden dizziness, confusion or severe or
persistent vomiting.
In children the emergency warning signs
include fast breathing or trouble breathing,
bluish skin color, not drinking fluids, not
waking up or not interacting, being so ir
ritable the child does not want to be held,
flu-like symptoms improve then return with
fever and worse cough, fever and rash.
Besides the Okeechobee case, there are
also unconfirmed single cases of swine flu
in Alachua, Lee, Indian River, Palm Beach,
Seminole and Clay counties. Miami Dade
and Broward each has three probable cases.
Hillsborough County has six probable cases.
As of newspaper press time there were five
confirmed Florida cases. Two in Lee Coun-
ty, one in Broward County, one in Orange
County and one in Pinellas County.
As of 11 a.m. Tuesday, May 5 the CDC
reported a total of 403 confirmed cases of
swine flu in 38 states with one fatality in
Texas.

Okeechobee
track stars
ready for state
By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
One of them can't even practice at his
own high school while the other is in awe of
just getting the opportunity to compete.
They are Ricky Nieto and Malcolm Rush
who both qualified last Wednesday for the
Class 4A track meet to be held this Saturday,
May 9, at Showalter Field in Winter Park.
Nieto will compete in the high jump. He
finished tied for second in the region with
a leap of 6 ft. 2 in. He said he knows that
wasn't the best he could do.
"It wasn't my personal record. I think I
could have done better. I'm just happy to go
to state. There were some good competitors
there. I reached 6 ft. 2 in. at Merritt Island.
I scratched out in my attempts at higher.
Hopefully I'll do better at state.
Nieto does a remarkable job when you
consider he can't practice in Okeechobee.
The equipment used for the high jump was
damaged last year. Nieto now can only im-
prove his skills on days that he is compet-
ing.
"I can't practice, but I know the form, I
just kind of go through it in my head and try
to do my best. I like to see and watch the
other guys perform so I can learn from their
form, it's a learning experience. Hopefully,
I'd like to reach 6'10 or 7 ft. by the time I
graduate, that's my goal."
Nieto won the district championship and
said he thinks he can put in a great perfor-
mance Saturday at the state track meet.
Malcolm Rush will compete in the 200
meter days. He finished fourth at the region-
al tournament last week. Rush said he real-
ized right away that he was running against
some very talented individuals, "I feel like it
was a much higher level of competition. The
people who were there I knew from other
conference meets. I'm actually good enough
to make it to this level and even state; it was
really good for me and my confidence."
Rush said he hopes to finish ranked in the
top five in the state. He intends to practice
hard all week and improve his speed. He
noted he hopes some college recruiters pay
attention Saturday because he intends to im-
press them. "I haven't seen any offers yet.
I'm just hoping that since I made it to state in
the 200 meters, there will be college recruit-
ers on hand and they'll have some offers for
me."
