Ellerbee found guilty of murder


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Assistant State Attorney Tom
Bakkedahl stood before the 12-
member jury and succinctly
summed up his case by saying:
"On September 21, 2006, Terry
Ellerbee made a
decision. He de
cided to take a
life because he
deserved bet-
ter."
With that
Terry statement, the
Ellerbee prosecutor put
the case in the
jury's hands shortly before noon
on Monday, June 8. And, in about
two hours, they made their deci-
f .... 1 ....Ir .i rl i I .. ....-
burglary of a dwelling with battery
while armed, grand theft firearm,
cruelty to animals and grand theft
motor vehicle.
Ellerbee, 24, was found guilty
of murdering Thomas R. Dellarco


and the 72-year-old man's favorite Dellarco's sister, as her eyes welled officer with the City of Sunrise Po-


German Shepherd, Rikki.
The same jury that found him
guilty will also determine his sen-
tence when the penalty phase of
his case begins Wednesday, June
10, at 9 a.m. in the Okeechobee
County Judicial Center before Cir-
cui ,, I,.i. i. Vaughn.
T .. i, 1i as justice for
our brother," said Geri Baker, Mr.


up with tears.
Ms. Baker, along with her sister
R. Marie Dellarco and brother Dan-
ny Liotti, said they were relieved at
the verdict and stated their praise
at the way the case was handled
by investigators and prosecutors.
"From the beginning they've
been very professional. I was im-
pressed," said Mr. Liotti, a police


lice Department for 20 years. "(De
tective Sergeant) T.J. (Brock) was
excellent. And the state attorneys
did a great job."
Mr. Bakkedahl and fellow Assis-
tant State Attorney Ashley Albright
took their time in presenting their
case with surveillance videos of

Thomas R. Dellarco had built his home on "The Prairie," on Northwest 282nd Street, three
years before he was shot to death. His favorite German Shepherd, Rikki, was also killed. Five
of her offspring (one is pictured) were in the pool enclosure behind the home when the crime
occurred. Mr. Dellarco's siblings found homes for the dogs.


Mullin accused of causing fatal crash


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
An Okeechobee man being
sought for allegedly causing a traf-
fic accident that resulted in the
death of Anthony Richard Gehle
was arrested in Pinellas County as
he was going fishing.
James Paul 'Jimmy' Mullin, 36,
S.W. 21st St., was arrested Sunday,
June 7, by marine unit deputies
from the Pinellas County Sheriff's
Office as he was going fishing on
the 44-foot Hatteras charter boat
"Quality Time."
Mullin was being returned to


Okeechobee Tuesday afternoon,
June 9, where he is charged with
one felony count of manslaughter
and two misdemeanor counts of
culpable negligence.
According to Detective Ted Van
Deman, of the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office (OCSO), Mullin
reportedly attacked Mr. Gehle, 24,
on March 12 and jumped onto the
hood of his 2004 Toyota. While on
the hood of the car, Mullin blocked
Mr. Gehle's vision which caused
him to run a stop sign and to drive
into the path of a three-quarter ton
pickup truck, the detective said.


The Ford pickup struck the Toy-
ota in the driver's side door and
Mr. Gehle was killed upon impact,
said Detective Van Deman.
"If not for his foolishness, the
accident would not have hap-
pened and Mr. Gehle would still be
alive," the detective continued.
With Mr. Gehle at the time of
the crash was his sister-in-law
Amber Nicole Anthony, 19, and
his 5-year-old daughter Catelyn
Gehle. Both survived the crash but
Catelyn suffered multiple facial in
juries.
"The last time I saw her (Cate-
lyn) she was doing fine," Detective


Van Deman said. "She suffered
numerous scars. But, physically,
she's OK."
He said even though Ms. An
thony injured her back in the crash
she, too, is doing well.
Detective Van Deman stated
in his case report that Mullin was
living with Mr. Gehle's estranged
wife, Angela, and around 3 p.m.
that Thursday afternoon he called
Mr. Gehle. Mullin asked the man
to bring his daughter to his house
so Angela could spend time with
her.

Ellerbee buying soft drinks and cigarettes
at a Melbourne convenience store and try
ing to cash one of Mr. Dellarco's checks at a
Sebring bank.
And then there was the trail of receipts-
from a convenience store in Clewiston, to a
motel room in Sebring and then to the 7-11
in Melbourne-that Sgt. Brock and the pros
ecutors used to show how Ellerbee moved
around and used Mr. Dellarco's bank card.
In his closing statement, Public Defender
Stanley Glenn did not contest the fact that
Ellerbee stole the bank card and check book
from Mr. Dellarco. He admitted that his cli
ent went to the man's concrete block on
N.W 282nd St. just for that reason.


CRASH
Continued From Page 1

It was learned later, said the detective,
that Mullin allegedly made the call out of
jealousy and reportedly did not want An-
gela to have any contact with her husband.
Mr. Gehle and Angela were in the process
of obtaining a divorce, added Detective Van
Deman.
The detective's report goes on to state
that when Mr. Gehle pulled into the drive
way his wife was crying because she and
Mullin were arguing about his jealousy.
Mullin then reportedly began yelling and
cursing at Mr. Gehle. He tried to goad him
into a fight but Mr. Gehle refused, continued
the report.
Angela attempted to intervene, the report
continues, but Mullin allegedly pushed her
to the ground, charged Mr. Gehle and report-


Mr. Glenn told the jury that Ellerbee went
to Mr. Dellarco's home "to steal" but not to
kill. He argued that the shooting of Mr. Del
larco was an accident. He said his client fired
the .22 caliber rifle in the man's direction to
scare him out of the house so Ellerbee could
escape.
But, when Mr. Bakkedahl stepped before
the jury Monday morning he played part of
Ellerbee's statement to Sgt. Brock in which
he admitted to shooting Mr. Dellarco as he
sat at his kitchen table.
"I came out of the bedroom. He was
looking down. I threw the gun to my shoul-
der and fired. I had my eyes closed," said
Ellerbee. "I really didn't even try to aim. I
knew precisely where he was."
Mr. Dellarco was shot once in the top of
the head. The bullet went through his brain
and lodged behind his left eye. Death was
instantaneous and painless, testified Dr.


edly stuck him in the forehead. The detective
said Mr. Gehle was bleeding profusely from
a cut above his left eye.
The man put his daughter in the car and
tried to drive away, but Mullin jumped onto
the hood of the Toyota, the report continues.
He knelt on the hood, blocking the driver's
vision, and began cussing and trying to hit
Mr. Gehle.
As Mr. Gehle approached the stop sign at
S.W 21st St. and S.W 32ndAve. around 4:30
p.m. he could not see the sign and drove
into the path of the oncoming truck being
driven by Esdras Gomez, who works for a
landscaping company and was pulling a
trailer filled with equipment.
Mr. Gomez told Detective Van Deman he
saw a man sitting on the hood of the car and
it appeared he was hitting the driver through
the open window. Mr. Gomez, 28, was not
charged.
The detective stated in his report that Mr.
Gehle's head actually struck the front of the
truck upon impact.


Charles Diggs from the medical examiner's
office in Fort Pierce. Dr. Diggs performed the
autopsy on Mr. Dellarco.
In his taped statement to Sgt. Brock, Eller-
bee said he always closes his eyes when he
shoots a gun.
However, he went on to state that: "I can
shoot a gun. Period."
But Rikki, Mr. Dellarco's favorite pet,
wasn't so lucky. Ellerbee shot her three
times before she finally died. The dog's body
was found in a ditch across the street from
the home.
"The dog was not attacking and was in
an enclosed area," said Mr. Albright.
Rikki was shot in the right leg, back and
in the head. Her death was neither instanta-
neous nor painless.
Before Ellerbee committed the crime he
and his then-girlfriend Amber Striker and her
baby were staying in a deserted shack on the


Mullin, who had reportedly jumped off
the car before the crash, allegedly returned
to the Toyota and began to hit Mr. Gehle
several more times for "still talking ... about
me," the report stated. When he realized Mr.
Gehle was not breathing he fled the scene,
stated Detective Van Deman, and has been
on the run ever since.
Detective Van Deman said Mullin has an
extensive criminal background with a total
of 25 arrests for such crimes as robbery, bur-
glary, weapons possession and drug posses-
sion.
"This whole thing is so sad. Everyone
I've talked to said he (Mr. Gehle) was a very
good guy," said Detective Van Deman. "He
was doing everything he could not to par-
ticipate in the violence. This is just so sad-a
cruel twist of fate."


Small fire leads to apartment water damage


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Okeechobee County Fire Rescue report-
ed $400,000 in property damage was done
Saturday, mostly due to water damage, af
ter a fire at the Oaks by Shannon Crossing
at 833 US 441 SE.
A fire report from EMT Ricky Hansford


said two units and five firemen responded
and found no flames coming from the
apartment complex and all of the occu-
pants outside safe and sound. Firemen
found a small cooking fire and some dam-
age to a stove hood system and the ceiling
of the apartment. Upon inspection of other
nearby units firemen located two to three


inches of water and extensive damage in
four units. The report stated the building
sprinkler system put out the flames before
firemen arrived.
The American Red Cross was called in
to assist the four families involved, all of
whom had no fire insurance, the report
said. There were no injuries reported.

Prairie known as Red Camp. There was no
electricity or water. At times the couple had
to drink water from ditches.
She also testified that Ellerbee became
grumpy.
"He said he didn't deserve to live like
this," Striker testified Friday. "He said he de-
served better."
Ellerbee then left the rundown shack and
went to Mr. Dellarco's home about a mile
away.
As he neared the end of his closing state-
ment, Mr. Bakkedahl told the jury that Eller-
bee had planned to bury his victim in the
back yard and then move Striker and her
baby into the house with him. The pros
ecutor said Ellerbee planned to live in the
3 year-old home free of charge.
"Because," he said softly to the jury, "he
deserved better."

Drugs, cash seized in Task Force raids


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Three people were arrested and over
$7,000 in cash was seized in drug raids on a
home and apartment late last week.
According to arrest affidavits, over 386
grams of suspected marijuana was found
packaged for resale in a home shared by
Kelvin Keith Wilson and Shaneika Latoya
Lewis.
While a search warrant was being ex-
ecuted on this home, another warrant was
being served on an apartment being rented
by Sedat Jabari Wilson at the same time.
Cocaine, a small amount of marijuana and
drug paraphernalia was reportedly seized in
that raid.
Kelvin Wilson, 36, N.E. llth St., was ar
rested Thursday, June 4, on felony charges of
possession of a firearm by a convicted felon,
possession of marijuana with intent to sell
and possession of cocaine. He was also ar
rested on a misdemeanor charge of posses-
sion of drug paraphernalia. He was booked


into the Okeecho-
bee County Jail
under a bond of
$42,500.
Lewis was ar-
rested on felony
charges of posses-
sion of marijuana
with intent to sell
and possession of Kelvin K. Shane
and possession of
cocaine, as well Wlson Lewis
as a misdemeanor charge of possession of
drug paraphernalia. Her bond was set at
$11,000.
Sedat Wilson was arrested on a felony
charge of possession of cocaine, and misde
meanor charges of possession of marijuana
under 20 grams and possession of drug par
aphernalia. His bond was set at $3,500.
Jail records indicate all three have been
released on bond.
An arrest affidavit by the Okeechobee
Narcotics Task Force states that both war-
rants were served shortly after 8 a.m. on
June 4.


The affidavit
states that during
a search of Kelvin
Wilson's home,
386.8 grams of
suspected mari-
juana was found
Packaged, in 14
ika L. Sedat J separate plastic
Wilson bags, for resale.
The suspected
pot was reportedly found hidden in a shoe
box in a living room closet.
When field tested, the substance indi-
cated a positive result for the presence of
marijuana, the affidavit stated.
In that same closet, detectives said they
found plastic bags containing a white pow
der. When field tested, the powder allegedly
indicated a positive result for the presence
of cocaine.
The suspected cocaine was packaged in
three individual baggies that weighed 1.1
grams each, stated the arrest affidavit.


Detectives also reportedly found: a glass
pot and glass dish that contained suspected
cocaine; open boxes of baking soda; plas
tic sandwich bags in different sizes; digital
scales; and, a firearm.
Task force detectives also found over
$7,000 in cash in the home. Kelvin Wilson,
said a detective, is unemployed.
In the apartment rented by Sedat Wilson,
detectives reportedly found a small amount
of suspected marijuana weighing 2 grams,
as well as approximately .8 grams of sus-
pected crack cocaine.
The substances were field tested and in
dicated a positive result for the presence of
marijuana and cocaine, the arrest affidavit
stated.
Besides task force detectives, deputies
from the Okeechobee County Sheriff's Of
fice and that department's Special Response
Team, along with agents from the Drug En-
forcement Administration (DEA), took part
in the two raids.

Public Forum/Speak Out


June 10, 2009


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!

June 6,1944: D-Day
The Invasion of Normandy by Allied
troops named "Operation Overlord" was
the largest air and sea operation in military
history. It's one goal, the total defeat of Ger
many. 150,000 Allied Expeditionary Forces
were deployed. Casualty estimates for Allied
forces vary, but range from 2,500 to more
than 5,000 dead on D-Day. Adding to the
confusion is that D-Day books and histories
often count wounded, missing and troops
taken prisoner. On its Web site, the D-Day
Museum in Portsmouth, England, says an
estimated 2,500 Allied troops died. The U.S.
Army Center of Military History in Washing-
ton, D.C., numbers 6,036 American casual-
ties, including wounded and missing. More
than 19,000 civilians in Normandy also died
in Allied bombing before and after D-Day
to soften up German defenses. http://www.
history.army.mil/documents/WWIl/g4-OL/
g4-ol.htm.
A turning point day in the history of the
world. One that changed everything, forever.
Makes you want to go rent "Saving Private
Ryan." While some are Civil War Buffs, I
think WWII was the most interesting event
in U.S. or even world history. D-Day was the
beginning of the end for the Axis, and the
liberation of Europe.
It's kind of "tragic" in that efforts in the
Pacific Theatre were delayed because of the
war in Europe.
My father was a pilot in the USAF ... He
fought in the D-Day invasion and had many
a story to tell us kids growing up.
*Politics played a big part in the decision
to invade Europe. Then again if we did not
push so hard in Europe, and Germany would
have finished their bomb first, who knows
what would have happened. We might have
seen both sides using the bomb, or GM
would not have to worry about bankruptcy
because we would all be driving VWs, but
not by choice.


Unfortunately for the men and women
on Corregidor that delay would be costly in
lives.
My father is a World War II veteran who
fought in the Pacific. Last night we were talk-
ing about D-Day and he told me that Nor-
mandy helped the morale of the soldiers in
the Pacific because they thought it would
help end the war sooner.

Who will be the new football coach?
The coach is gone and now is the time
to rally around the payers and the incoming
coach. We can't change the past, but we can
do our best to ensure that the future is the
best we can provide.
There are a lot of applicants for the job,
a lot of narrowing down and interviews.
What was said concerning
other coaches being let go
was this. 1. Coaches have
mandatory meetings to at-
tend. Some state meetings,
other local meetings, such
as Treasure Coast confer-
ence meetings. For a long
time, the administration
could care less if they went.
Now it seems to be the opposite. They do
care and you had better be at the meetings.
2. They also have to have paperwork and
other matters taken care of and turned in
in a timely manner. I guess they might have
been a day late and this really upset some-
one and they pulled their rank on them.
Sounds like that administrator who
took over last year has some high expecta-
tions. I think that is a good thing. The basket-
ball position was posted on June 1st along
with wrestling and flag football, http://www.
fhsaa.org/classified/positions.htm.

Gun grabbers
Any law abiding American with a clean
criminal record should have to pass a gun
safety course, receive and carry a concealed
weapons permit, good in all 50 states, then
be allowed to own firearms. The only excep-
tion should be any semi auto rifle with more
than a three shot magazine or automatic
machine guns and you should get a more
extensive license for that and anyone caught
carrying without a license should locked up
and the key thrown away. Pick up a few of
these gang members without a concealed
permit and lock them up at hard labor for
ten years and sooner or later a lot of this
mess would go away.


Any law abiding American with a clean
criminal record should have to pass a course
on the U.S. Constitution and prove that they
have provided some community or United
States services. Then they shall be allowed
to Vote. The only exception should be any
young adult who just became of age, they
should get more extensive training for that
from an unimpeachable bipartisan source.
Anyone caught voting without a license
should locked up and the key thrown away.
Those arrested could provide hard labor for
ten years. Sooner or later, a lot of this politi-
cal mess would go away.
The funny thing about gun control is
that I would bet even the most staunch anti-
gun law people would support certain limits
on the "right to bear arms." Yet they would
demonize those who simply have a different
idea of those limits that fall on the side of
more gun control. Just like there are limits
to free speech and the right to assemble,
there are limits on guns in order to protect.
We define these limits through general con-
sensus and voting. There is always a sliding
scale. Nobody (or almost nobody) is wrong
in their interpretation of these limits, but
at the same time, nobody is correct either.
What we have are differing opinions and
law. That's it. There's no great good vs. evil
battle going on here. Try to remember this.
Making laws is one thing. Rewriting the
Constitution is another.
Should you be able to (falsely) yell fire
in a crowded theater, causing the death of
others without responsibility because it was
your first amendment right to say whatever
you want? Or should we INTERPRET the
constitution to value the life of others when
your right to free speech encroaches on their
right to life?

School is out
School is out for the summer so drive
carefully.

Advice for the graduates
Get a job, don't depend on your par-
ents to support you any more, party time is
over now, life, the real fun begins.
Get some clothes that fit.
Join the military. Learn respect, see the
world, and get your college education all in
one.
Get out of Okeechobee. There is no
future here, unless you want to work some
type of service related job.


Kids and cars
How many parents out there went and
purchased a vehicle for your child to drive
around with no job to pay for any of the re-
sponsibilities of having a vehicle?
My children's job is to do well in high
school. A job diverts their attention away
from their studies. My job is provide for them
and to teach them responsibility, morals, and
values. Making them pay for a car is not the
only way to teach them responsibility.
I bought two cars for two kids, so they
could drive to school, with all their sports
they were in at school. It worked out great.
They went to college, and now they bought
me a new car.They said it was their way of
saying 'Thank You.'

Economy improving
It is odd actually. We are seeing more
customer traffic at the beginning of summer.
Not usually the pattern for us. Although the
customers we do get in the summer months
are usually more serious buyers than dur
ing the winter months. Because the Snow
Birds are just looking, not buying till they
get home. I think it is a sign that things are
starting to turn around. Maybe it is just that
people are tired of holding back and want to
spend a little. Still, most of our actual sales
are people that need to trade, not just want-
ing something different.
The national unemployment rate rose
to 9.4 percent in May, from 8.9 percent in
April, its highest level in more than 25 years,
according to a report issued Friday by the U.S.
Department of Labor. We're .6 away from
double digit unemployment And, the Out-
standing Public Debt as of 06 June 2009 at
02:10:31 PM GMT is: $11,395,479,173,277.86.
The estimated population of the United
States is 306,318,211 so each citizen's share
of this debt is $37,201.44. The National Debt
has continued to increase an average of
$3.87 billion per day since September 28,
2007!
The job losses for May were the low-
est of any month, and lower than expected.
But then that may be because there are so
few jobs left to lose. They say we will see
more job loss, but expect that to start to turn
around by the end of the year. Let's hope
"they" are right.

OPINION








Derelict vessels: More than just ugly eyesores


Guest Commentary

By Rodney Barreto
Chairman, Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Recreational boating is huge business in
Florida. With so much water and year-round
boating weather, it's no wonder so many
people in this state own boats and routinely
take to our waters.
As pleasurable as recreational boating
can be, it's not all fun and games. Owning
and operating a boat is a huge responsibil-
ity. Vessels, like cars, need proper care and
maintenance. If they don't get it, they'll run
poorly or break down. When a vessel breaks
down in the middle of the Intracoastal Wa
terway, a river or lake, it's not always so easy
to get it back to the marina or boat ramp.
And, if the owner or operator is unprepared,
it's a good way to ruin a day in a hurry.
Boats that are stored on the water kept
in a slip at a marina or tied to a mooring
buoy present other challenges for own-


ers. If the vessels are improperly secured,
they can break away during hurricanes or
other severe storms. Sometimes these loose
boats run aground or sink and become haz-
ardous to boaters and the environment.
When this happens, the vessel owner
is responsible for finding and retrieving the
boat as soon as possible at his or her ex-
pense. Responsible boat owners know this
and do what's necessary to remove the haz-
ard quickly.
However, not every boat owner takes this
responsibility seriously. Since removing a
sunken vessel or one that has run aground is
a lot more complicated and expensive than
towing a broken-down car, some people
choose to leave the boat in the water. In the
eyes of the law, these boats then become
abandoned or derelict vessels.
These vessels are more than ugly eye-
sores. Partially submerged vessels, or those
submerged just below the surface can be
real navigational hazards. In tidal waters
during low tide a sunken vessel might be
clearly visible, but when the tide comes in,


it disappears just below the waterline. Many
unsuspecting boaters have come to grief un-
der just such circumstances.
At the same time, damaged vessels can
leak toxic chemicals and cause environmen-
tal concerns in which plants and animals
can die.
So, what happens to these unwanted,
abandoned and potentially dangerous ves-
sels?
Eventually, most will be removed. But it's
a long, expensive process and taxpayers foot
much of the bill.
Here's how it works: law enforcement of-
ficers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission bear responsibility
for finding abandoned and derelict vessels.
Once they find the vessels, they attempt to
locate the owners. When they do, they work
with boat owners to remove the vessels as
quickly as possible. If the owners refuse to
cooperate, they may face civil or criminal
penalties, including possible fines and jail
time, and ultimately will have to pay for the
cost to remove the vessel.


If vessel owners cannot be found, the
taxpayer ends up footing the bill. The longer
a derelict vessel sits in the water, the more
it will likely cost to remove it. And that cost
can vary from a few thousand dollars to
hundreds of thousands of dollars.
And, in many situations, moving a dere
lict vessel can cause environmental damage
if not done properly.
Last July, the Florida Legislature appro-
priated $1.55 million to the FWC to remove
derelict vessels around the state. The FWC
has contracted Post, Buckley, Schuh & Jerni-
gan (PBS&J), a full-service planning and en-
gineering consulting firm headquartered in
Tampa, to assist with removing them.
So far they've removed 22 derelict vessels
from around the state. By the end of this fis-
cal year, June 30, the FWC hopes to remove
75 more-for a total of 97.
If you know of a derelict vessel, please re
port it to the FWC at 888-404-3922. An FWC
officer will be assigned to investigate and ini-
tiate a derelict vessel case file.

By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
The "B" word is once again on the agen
da for the commissioners' meeting but will
actions outweigh words this time? From the
looks of the agenda, any spectators should
prepare to stay all day.
County Administrator Lyndon Bonner
will head up a budget discussion in which
Russell Rowland of solid waste, Darrell En-
finger of parks and recreation and Tony Ard
of facilities management will discuss how
their departments can operate more effi-
ciently.
Deputy County Administrator Robbie
Chartier will give a financial update as of
May31.
"The overall financial standing of
Okeechobee County, as related to the
FY08/09 budget on May 31, 2009 is declin-
ing," her report states. She goes on to say
that year to date expenses exceed revenues

jected to decline $1.5 million this fiscal year.
Current revenues are $37,948,717 and cur
rent expenditures are $40,207,355.
Once again the topic of suspension of
impact fees will be brought up. The ad
vocate this time will be Tony Stark of the
Okeechobee Contractor's Association. His

11:30 a.m. to discuss litigation between the
county, American Drilling Services and the
Florida Department of Environmental Pro-
tection.
A 1:30 p.m. workshop is scheduled for
David Barth and Alison Crnic of Glatting
Jackson Kercher Anglin, Inc. to present their
parks and recreation master plan. Mr. Barth
has asked for two hours in order to bring the
board up to date and allow time for appro-
priate feedback. The consultants have been
evaluating existing parks, assessing commu-
nity needs and priorities, developing a long
range, county wide vision and creating an
implementation strategy.
In other action, the board is expected to:


amend bond documents dealing with
Waste Management;
consider granting preliminary plat ap-
proval to Pine Creek Cottages;
amend the aluminium specialty con-
tractor's license to bring it more in line with
the state's specialty structure contractor's
license;
clarify policy on building department
fee refunds;
execute a lease agreement with the
Department of Children and Families for

sale interested persons bid on how much
interest they would charge to pay the taxes.
The bidder who will charge the lowest inter-
est rate gets the bid, pays the taxes due and
receives a tax certificate.
After two years, if the property owner has
not redeemed the certificate by paying the
tax and accumulated interest to the certifi
cate holder, the certificate holder can fore-
close on the property. Those tax certificates
not sold revert to the county.
The county automatically charges 18
percent interest on those certificates. After
June 1 an interested person may buy any
unsold tax certificates from the county for
18 percent interest. Those certificates still
held by the county after two years may be
foreclosed.
Several years ago, during Okeechobee's
building boom, some developers worked
out agreements with OUA to pay for guaran-
teed sewer capacity and capital connection
charges for their proposed development by
making time payments in the form of assess-
ments to their tax bills.
The utility, in turn, is using the proceeds
from these agreements to help finance an
expansion of the wastewater treatment
plant.
This year at least five of those develop-
ers did not pay their taxes. Those five tax
certificates were not sold at the June 1
auction. They automatically reverted to the
county at 18 percent interest. In order to
protect their investment the board voted to


purchase those tax certificates for a total of
$887,534.42. Of that amount $785,242.77
will revert back to OUA as their portion of
the tax bill. While the vote to change the
investment policy was unanimous, board
member Tommy Hoover cast the only vote
against actually purchasing the tax certifi
cates at this time.
By buying the tax certificates now, OUA
would be earning 18 percent interest if the
owner redeemed them. If they did not buy
them and someone else bought the tax cer
tificates in the next two years, OUA would
still get the money owed them for the tax
bill, but would receive no interest.
However, if no one bought the tax cer
tificates after two years and the county


foreclosed on the property, all liens would
be cancelled and OUA would not get the
money owed them on the tax bill.
Tax certificates purchases included cer
tificates for properties owned by Northshore
Village, Stephen Myers, Sr. Freshwater De
velopment, Land Ventures of America and
Royal Professional Builders.
The Northshore Village and Stephen E.
Myers, Sr. properties are part of the pro
posed Northshore Village which is planned
on property north of S.R. 70 and east and
north of Douglas Park.
The Freshwater Development property
is part of a proposed development for both
sides of Charles Harvey Highway. Land
Ventures of America had proposed to build


Eagles Landing on U.S. 441 S.E. at Nubbin
Slough. Royal Professional Builders had
prosed to build a housing complex of pre-
fabricated concrete homes on S.W. Sixth
Street.

FHSAA reprimands OHS for self-reported violations


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Violations that led to the firing of football
coach Jeremy Beckham last month have
been reported to the Florida High School
Athletic Association by Okeechobee High
School officials.
Assistant Principal and Athletic Director
Sean Downing wrote a letter to the FHSAA
on May 12, that pinpointed the things that
led to Beckham's dismissal, just one week
into spring football practice.
In the letter Downing said the program vi-
olated several FHSAA regulations. Those vio-
lations included a team meeting on Sunday
May 3, allowing eighth graders to participate
in full contact drills with upperclassmen,
and students being placed in pads before a
three-day acclimation period at the start of
spring practice.


Downing said school administrators met
with Coach Beckham on Friday, May 8, to dis-
cuss the problems that had been observed.
He said the coach failed to comply with the
suggestions and then was dishonest with
his administration. A follow up meeting was
held on Monday, May 11, where the coach
was released from his contract and removed
from the premises.
"The integrity of my program is more
important to me than wins and losses, and
both my principal and I would never know-
ingly endorse a program that was acting out-
side of the rules," he stated.
The infractions also included students
from other sports going right into pads and
contact without no acclimation period.
Spring practice began on Monday, May 4,
and Downing found that students were in
shoulder pads on the second day, May 5, and
in full gear on May 7.


"We want to operate our program with the high school had taken steps to correct
our integrity intact and our heads held high, the actions by terminating the coach.
whether we win a game or not," Downing They issued a letter of reprimand to the
wrote in the letter, high school and a warning about future vio
FHSAA officials said they were satisfied nations.


SFWMD continues Apple Snail

Tag and release experiment


Scientists from the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD) will tag and
release approximately 3,000 apple snails on
Wednesday, June 10, continuing an experi-
ment to study the re-establishment of the
significant species in Lake Okeechobee.
Apple snails are the primary food source
for the endangered

other wildlife. The
apple snail release
supports the Dis-
trict's Everglades
and ecosystem
restoration efforts.
Traveling by air-
boat, District biologists tagged and released
nearly 1,600 apple snails in April and have
already begun collecting data. They will
repeat the process of gluing plastic tags to
the mollusk shells and slogging through a
lakeside marsh to release the new and larg-

Before the Florida Public Service Commission

Amended Notice of Commission Hearing and Prehearing
Docket No 090172-El: Petition for Determination of Need for

Florida EnergySecure Line by Florida Power & Light Company
Issued: June 8, 2009

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a hearing will be held before the Florida Public Service Commission in the
above docket regarding the petition of Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) for a determination of need for an
intrastate natural gas transmission pipeline, at the following time and place: Monday Tuesday, July 27 28,
2009,9:30 a.m., Room 148, Betty Easley Conference Center, 4075 Esplanade Way, Tallahassee, FL 32311.
PURPOSE AND PROCEDURE:
The purpose of this hearing will be for the Commission to take final action to determine the need, pursuant
to Section 403.9422, Florida Statutes, for FP's proposed natural gas transmission pipeline, the Florida
EnergySecure Line, to be located in the following Florida counties: Bradford, Clay, Putnam, Flagler, Volusia,
Seminole, Orange, Brevard, Osceola, Indian River, Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach. This
proceeding shall: (1) allow FPL to present evidence and testimony in support of its petition for a determination
of need for its intrastate natural gas transmission pipeline;
(2) permit any intervenors to present testimony and exhibits concerning this matter; (3) permit members of
the public who are not parties to the need determination proceeding the opportunity to present testimony
concerning this matter; and (4) allow for such other purposes as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The proceedings will be governed by the provisions of Section 403.9422, Florida Statutes, and Chapters
25-22 and 28-106, Florida Administrative Code. Under Section 403.9422, Florida Statutes, the Commission
is the sole forum for the determination of need for the proposed pipeline. In making its determination, the
Commission must take into account the need for natural gas delivery, reliability, safety, and integrity; the need
for abundant, clean-burning natural gas to assure the economic well-being of the public; the appropriate
commencement and terminus of the line; and other matters within its jurisdiction deemed relevant to
the determination of need. The determination of need by the Commission is binding on all parties to any
certification proceeding pursuant to Sections 403.9401-403.9425, Florida Statutes, and is a condition
precedent to the conduct of the certification hearing prescribed therein. An order entered by the Commission
pursuant to this hearing shall constitute final agency action.
Only issues relating to te need for the proposed intrastate natural gas transmission pipeline will be heard
at this hearing. Separate public hearings will be held before the Division of Administrative Hearings and the
Natural Gas Transmission Pipeline Siting Board at a later date to consider environmental and other impacts of
the proposed pipeline and associated facilities.
Members of the public who are not parties to the need determination proceeding will have an opportunity
to present testimony regarding the need for the proposed pipeline. All members of the public who wish to offer
testimony should be present at the beginning of the hearing, 9:30 a.m., Monday, July 27, 2009. All witnesses
will be sworn in and will be subject to cross-examination at the conclusion of their testimony.
By providing public testimony, a person does not become a party to the proceeding. Anyone wishing to
become a party to this need determination proceeding should file an appropriate petition pursuant to Rule

Graduation Day
Members of the Okeechobee High School Class of 2009 were happy and
excited as the graduation ceremonies began on June 4 at the Agri-Civic
Center.


TT witn tne ties
A torrential rainstorm forced a quick
change of plans for the Okeechobee
High School Class of 2009 gradua-
tion at the Okeechobee Agri-Civic
Center on June 4. Instead of leav-
ing the arena, the boys were asked
to take off their ties at the end of
the arena before all of the gradu-
ates picked up the envelopes con-
taining their actual diplomas. (On
stage each was just given the outer
diploma cover.)
