A report identifying the 31
unmarked graves at the Florida
School for Boys (FSB) in Marianna
fell short of accomplishing any-
thing, said a man who spent time
there as a boy.

it pretty much said what I thought
it would say-nothing," said Bry-

tigation was brought about by al-
legations of abuse by men, like Mr.
Middleton, who were at the Mari-
anna and Okeechobee schools.
Those allegations are laid out in
a class action suit filed against
the state that now has at least 225

and were unmercifully beaten
until the fabric of their clothes be-
came embedded into their skin.
In Marianna a strap consisting
of two pieces of leather with a pli
ant piece of sheet metal sewed in
between the leather was used to
whip the boys. In Okeechobee, a
piece of tire was fashioned into
a strap. Embedded in that strap
were silver dollars.
That lawsuit deals with boys
who were beaten and sodomized
at the two schools in the '40s, '50s
and '60s.

According to Kristen Perezluha,
an FDLE public information offi-
cer, investigators did not exhume
the bodies because that would not
help determine the cause of death.
Also, unless there was some sort of
DNA records available being able
to positively identify each corpse
would be an impossibility.
She said some of the graves
were over 50 years old.

Ms. Perezluha said investigators had to
rely on interviews with former school staff,
men who were in the school and newspa-
per articles that documented some of the
deaths.
"We had to rely on the information avail-
able to us," she said in a telephone interview
Tuesday, May 19.
According to the report, a court order is
needed before a body can be exhumed. That
order would have to provide criminal, legal
and forensic reasons for the exhumation.
"The investigation did not reveal evidence
to suggest that any of the deceased died as
a result of criminal conduct which had not
been previously investigated," stated the re-
port.


Okeechobee News


The report states that:
24 of those buried in the cemetery died
from illness or accident. Of those, eight stu-
dents and two staff members died in a 1914
dormitory fire; 12 students died from influ-
enza, tuberculosis or other medical condi-
tions; one drowned; and, one died of a rup-
tured lung after falling from a mule.
One student was murdered by four
other students in 1944 .
In 1940, one boy ran away and was
found dead four months later under a Mari-
anna home. The cause of death could not be
determined due to decomposition.
Five, who were buried between 1919
and 1925, had no listed cause of death.
The report went on to state that from
1911 through 1973, 50 other student deaths
were documented. While most of these
were due to accident or illness, two were
students who were killed by other students.

In another case, an escapee from the school
was shot to death by a sheriff's deputy.
"The investigation found no evidence that
the school or the staff caused, or contributed
to, any of these deaths," stated the report.
Allegations have also been made by for-
mer 'students' at the Marianna school that,
in some cases, boys were killed then buried
somewhere in the woods that surrounds the
school. The school sits on 1,400 acres.
"We did survey the land for graves sur-
rounding the land, but nothing was found,"
said Ms. Perezluha.
She added that investigators did find
some old crosses buried in some brush.
Like the report dealing with Boot Hill, Mr.
Middleton feels the investigators didn't look
hard enough.


OFFICER
Continued From Page 1

Locally, OCSO Deputy Glover Emer-
son "Skip" Bryant is the only law enforce-
ment officer to have died in the line of duty.
Deputy Bryant died Nov. 8, 1991, when the
plane in which he was a passenger crashed
while looking for missing boaters on Lake
Okeechobee.


May 20, 2009
"We've been telling them for months
there are other sites," he said.
Something else bothers the retired U.S.
Army captain about Boot Hill-why are the
grave sites simply marked with a white cross
made out of pipe?
"If they've known all along who are in
these graves, do they not have the common
decency to at least mark the graves with
names?" he asked. "They don't even give
their own staff members dignity by not iden-
tifying the grave sites."
Ms. Perezluha said the FDLE investigation
into the abuse allegations is continuing and
that investigators are still conducting inter-
views.


In ending his speech, Sheriff May offered
this prayer:
"To the Good Lord Almighty, from police
officers all across our country. When the
shooting starts, and it will, help us to shoot
straight for we are doing your work. When
the physical confrontations come, and they
will, help us be strong and fast for we are
fighting your fight. If officers should lose
their lives, and they will, let the next words
they hear be: 'Welcome home, and well
done.'"

Accident victim dies at hospital


By Eric Kopp

the truck was westbound on S.R. 70 near its

Man accused of hitting toddler


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man was arrested in Do-
than, Ala., on a local warrant that charged him
with intentionally striking a
3-year-old boy n the groin.
Thomas Colby Fralix, 20,
S.W Ninth St., was arrested
May 15 on an Okeechobee
County warrant charging
him with physical or men-
tal injury to a child. He was
booked into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail on a bond
of $15,000.
Jail records indicate that Thomas
he has since posted bond. Colby Fralix
According to an ar-


rest affidavit by Deputy Paul Jackson, of the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's Office (OCSO),
Fralix was playing with the toddler on April
30, when the youngster accidentally hit Fralix
in the groin. Fralix then hit the toddler in the
groin and said "How does that feel?" added the
report.
The affidavit goes on to state that Fralix hit
the toddler twice.
Deputy Jackson went on to state that the
toddler was taken to the emergency room at
Raulerson Hospital on May 3 and was diag
nosed as suffering from testicular trauma. The
youngster, continued the report, had visible
swelling as well as some visible bruising on
his testicles.
Fralix was taken into custody at the county
jail in Dothan then returned to Okeechobee

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 com-
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!

Your guns
I own a gun, but I'd gladly give it up if
no one else could have one. I'd feel safer in
this world if there weren't so many guns.
When Obama's Civil Defense Force
comes to get my guns, they'll get them lead
first. You may find me dead in a ditch some-
day, but you'll find me in a pile of brass.
The State of Montana has defied the
federal government and their gun laws. This
will prompt a showdown between the fed-
eral government and the State of Montana.
The federal government fears citizens own-
ing guns. They try to curtail what types of
guns they can own. The gun control laws
all have one common goal confiscation
of privately owned firearms. Montana has
gone beyond drawing a line in the sand.
They have challenged the Federal Govern-
ment. The fed now either takes them on and
risks them saying the federal agents have no
right to violate their state gun laws and arrest
the federal agents that try to enforce the fed-
eral firearms acts. This will be a world-class
event to watch.
Have you noticed how the price of
ammo has doubled? And more in some cas-
es. It is only going to get higher, so folks, get
it while you can. I think the biggest reason
is because they know they can't take away
our guns, but they can make it harder to get
the ammo.

Football coach let go
I am a student assistant with the foot-
ball team. He was a great guy and I'm not
going to speculate about what he did or did
not do. I talked with a lot of the players and
they liked how he was personally connected
with them like coming in their classes and
checking grades. For all the kids who quit, I
and all the coaches sincerely wish that every
single one of y'all will come back. We'll win
with or without you, but I hope to see you
at practice.


Fire/Rescue
Okeechobee Fire Rescue needs our
help! The department currently covers over
500 square miles with 12 employees per 24-
hour shift this includes both fire and ambu-
lance crews. As a fire officer in Martin County
for over 20 years, I can tell you they are way
understaffed. I am alarmed because there is
now talk about cutting from 12 employees
to nine employees
per shift, and the
closing of fire sta-
tion #4 on 441
north of town. I
live north of town
and although
that station is
only manned = or
with two em-
ployees, which
limits what they
can do, it is still better than waiting a half an
hour for a unit to arrive.
We need the commission to properly
staff that station, not close it. It's the com-
mission's first responsibility to protect the
public, so they need to find the funding. We
the tax payers need to tell them that we will
not let them shirk that responsibility.
I thought the county fire department
was funded by the "fire tax" assessment.
Didn't they know how much money was
needed before they set that assessment for
the year? Are people just not paying their
taxes? The fire tax is a set amount per resi-
dence so it is not affected by changes in
property values.
SThe e tax provides 53 percent of the
funding for the fire part of fire rescue and
they are prohibited by the state to use that
money for emergency medical services, so
47 percent of the funding comes from the
landfill fees and other fees, that are way
down this year. An EMS tax was approved
by the commission last year but was put on
hold due to it being an election year. An EMS
tax would allow the county to collect that tax
from the city as well. The city currently pays
nothing for EMS provided by the county.

Jobs
With summer coming up, we have
a lot of teenagers who will be looking for
work and this economy is a tough one. If
you need work done around your home and
yard, consider hiring one of our local kids.

Blind leading the blind
With the changing of the commission-
ers in September of 2006 whether we want
to believe it or not, we turned this County
upside down at the most vulnerable time
possible. What consistency we had then has
turned into guesses and confusion instead of
management with comprehensive facts and
solid leadership and commissioners who
do not clearly understand the condition and
position of the county and are not able to
comprehend the facts of an agenda to make
solid decisions for the community. A scrip-
ture from the bible fits all too well, "Let them
alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And
if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into
the ditch." I would prefer to stay out of the
ditch so in the future I will work real hard
to remove whom I believe to be the blind
ones.

County Commissioners
After reading Friday's Okeechobee
News I think we might have one County
Commissioner who is looking out for the
people. Mr. Hoover wanted some answers
regarding the budget. What he may not
have known is that some of our commis-
sioners are very good at sidestepping issues
because they have been doing it for a long
time. I hope Mr. Hoover keeps trying to get
answers for the people of Okeechobee. We
have a right to know. It appears Mr. Domer
has it in for Mr. Bonner already. Maybe they
should have thought of those things before
they were so eager to get rid of Mr. Long,
who by the way took very good care of the
county budget for manyyears. I bet he's hav-
ing a good laugh right now.
The county made a big mistake when
they let George Long go, but it was the best
thing in the world for Mr. Long who found a
job with better pay and fewer headaches. It
was the county's loss when he left.

Teachers losing jobs
I have seen people get laid off before
and it is always to the good of the employer.
It's usually after some big project that has
to be done and then when it is over, that's
when they do the lay off. These employers
knew what they where doing. It's sad but
employers do use employees. I hope ev-
eryone that is defending this type of action,
don't' ever find themselves on the other end
of the stick.

Armed Forces Day
In the United States, Armed Forces Day
is celebrated on the third Saturday in May.
The purpose of Armed Forces day is to hon-
or Americans serving in the five services the
Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast
Guard. The day
was created in
1949, and was
a result of the
consolidation
of the military
services in the
Department
of Defense. It
was intended
to replace the
separate Army,
Navy, Air Force,
Marine Corps and Coast Guard Days, but
observance of these days (within each par-
ticular service) continues to this day. Armed
Forces Week begins on the second Saturday
of May and ends on the third Sunday of May.
Because of their unique training schedules,
National Guard and Reserve units may cel-
ebrate Armed Forces Day/Week over any pe-
riod in May. Thank you all, for protecting us!
I would like to thank all who served us,
and also my husband for 15 years of military
service and my granddads for their many
years as well, all the men and women who
have given up their families and friends and
lives to protect and serve all of us, and all
the families who have lost their loved ones
for us.

Teamwork needed
e I wonder if the budget shortfall will be
addressed by the county commission as a
group working together as a TEAM. It's time
for action!
All budget problems are caused by
wasteful spending. Turn lights off, stop buy-
ing fancy furniture for government offices,
stop buying gas guzzlers for city use. Don't
keep building guard rails, sidewalks and the
like. I bet just the money spent in the United
States for pens cost upwards of $500,000 to
a million alone if not more each year.
I am wondering what happened to the
suggestion that the board and top county of-
ficials take a voluntary pay cut to show they
are determined to balance the budget and
are willing to pitch in. It would show they
are part of the solution.

World Hepatitis Day shines
light on this serious disease

By Staci Sharpe, RN
Senior Community Health Nursing
Supervisor
May 19 was World Hepatitis Day. Hepati-
tis is the inflammation of the liver. Everything
that we eat or drink must filter through the
liver, to be able to provide nutrients through-
out our body. The three most common types
of Hepatitis Virus known is A, B, & C.
People with hepatitis often have no signs
of illness. Some people get flu like symp-
toms along with fatigue, nausea/vomiting,
dark urine, yellow tinge to skin/eyes (jaun-
dice), loss of appetite, and abdominal pain.
Adults tend to have more symptoms than
young children have.
The following behaviors may put you at
risk for being exposed to Hepatitis A: eat-


ing contaminated food
prepared by an infected
person who did not wash
their hands properly, anal/
oral sexual practices, eat-
ing contaminated shellfish,
drinking contaminated wa-
ter or exposure to feces of
someone infected. There Staci Sharpe,
is no treatment however; it
goes away by itself in 2-6 months.
The following behaviors may put you at
risk for being exposed to Hepatitis B un-
protected sexual contact with an infected
person, contact with contaminated needles,
injection drug equipment, tattoo and body
piercing instruments, razors, and tooth-
brushes, an infected mother to her infant
during delivery or someone who is exposed
to blood or body fluids on the job. Hepati-
tis B is treatable and can be managed by a
physician.

Civil Air Patrol squadron chaplain retires


Captain Woodward joined the Okeecho-
bee Composite Squadron not long after it's
inception in August of 2005 and served con-
tinuously as the Squadron's Chaplain and
Moral Leadership Officer until his retirement
in April 2008.
According to Squadron Commander,
Captain Joe Papasso, when the Squadron
first started, Captain Woodward was one of
only two Officers in the Squadron with any
CAP experience. His knowledge of CAP, ad-
vice and guidance to the new squadron was
invaluable. Captain Woodward performed
his services to the Squadron and CAP above
and beyond the call of duty during his tenure
with the Okeechobee Composite Squadron
and he will truly be missed by all!
Captain Papasso said the Civil Air Patrol
maintains a very high level of Cadet Pro-
tection Policies and expects a professional
operation with professional officers. Cap-
tain Woodward's knowledge in these areas
guided him through some very difficult situ-
ations in the early years and he continued to


do so to until his retirement from CAP and
the Squadron. The Squadron cannot thank
Captain Woodward enough for his service
over the past few years, he is a big part of
the success of the Okeechobee Composite
Squadron.
The Squadron also understands Captain
Woodward can never be replaced, but a
new Squadron Chaplain must now take his
place and what remains for the Squadron
today is to find a new Chaplain.
The Civil Air Patrol Chaplain duties are pri-
marily to advise the Commander on Ethical
and Moral issues as well as provide Pastoral
Care for the Squadron members and coordi-
nate Moral Leadership for CAP Cadets. Certi-
fied Chaplains may also provide Emergency
Ministry if they so desire. CAP is a volunteer
organization and the time required to per-
form these duties varies with events and
the amount of involvement as determined
by the Chaplain. Meetings, while not man-
datory, are every Tuesday starting at 7:30 to
9 p.m. in T-Hanger #1 at the Okeechobee


County Airport and provide the primary con-
tact with the Squadron for understanding
their needs.
Moral leadership however, is an immedi-
ate need the Squadron must fill ASAP. A sig-
nificant part of the Cadet Program involves
Moral Leadership Training. This is taught
once a month by the Chaplain or the Moral
Leadership Officer from guidelines in the
CAP Moral Leadership Book. These lessons
basically consist of reading different life situ-
ations from the CAP ML Book to the Cadets
and then discussing the outcome of the
people involved as well as the correct way
to handle each situation. Lessons are pre-
sented in a group session and preparation
is minimal because CAP has created the ML
Book. Each presentation and following dis-
cussion requires approximately 1 hour each
month. This is the primary time requirement
of a CAP Squadron Chaplain, approximately
1 to 1.5 hours a month.
While the monthly Moral Leadership
discussion is the primary role of the Chap-


lain Program at the Squadron Level, being
available for the other needs of the extend-
ed CAP Family is another important part of
the program. The Okeechobee Composite
Squadron is a big family and the Chaplain
is the eyes and ears of the Commander with
regard to the CAP Family and their extended
needs. This is a minimal time requirement
on the part of the Chaplain, but an important
part of the fabric which is the Okeechobee
Composite Squadron.
If you are a member of the Clergy and are
interested in providing guidance to the youth
in the Okeechobee area, the Civil Air Patrol
is a worthwhile opportunity to support your
community. Or, if you are interested in the
Civil Air Patrol or any of the other many fas-
cinating opportunities it offers to Cadets or
adults, please contact Capt. Joe Papasso at
561-252-0916, Lt. Joe Ragon at 954-695-8000
or Lt. Greg Gernat at 863-697-9915. Meetings
are every Tuesday at 7:30 to 9 p.m. at the
Okeechobee Airport, T-Hanger #1. Please
call for directions and gate access.
