a less expensive insurance package.
County Administrator Lyndon Bonner re-
ported on a meeting he and Chairman Clif
Betts had with the constitutional officers on
June 8. The sheriff said his department will
be returning about $500,000 to the county
in unspent funds at the end of the budget
year. The property appraiser's office will
be returning approximately $400,000. The
tax collector's office will be returning ap-
proximately $120,000. When these monies
are returned, the current year's budget can
be balanced. It was suggested that county
employees keep the 3 percent raise they got
earlier this year.
Mr. Bonner also presented a multi-page
document detailing possible savings. Since
commissioners only received the document
that morning, they wanted to study it before
commenting on it or taking action.
Turning to other action Dale Milita of Craig
A. Smith Governmental Services, reported
on the recent legislative session. He said he
worked hard to keep a public service com-
mission (PSC) bill from moving. It would
have given PSC oversight over Okeechobee
Utility Authority,

expected to bring hundreds of contestants
and crowds of rodeo fans to Okeechobee. It
will be the first time that Okeechobee Coun-
ty has hosted the event.
"I think it's a wonderful opportunity for
Okeechobee. I think the Board of County
Commissioners, the Okeechobee Cattle-
men's Association, and the community
recognize that children are important,"
Okeechobee High School Rodeo Coach Me-
lissa McKay said.
"I think our kids have represented
Okeechobee wonderfully and this event
will have a large economic impact for four
days," she added.
All of the traditional rodeo events will be
held. They include bull riding, bareback rid
ing, saddle bronc, calf roping, breakaway
roping, team roping, steer wrestling, goat ty-
ing, barrel racing, pole bending and cutting.
Coach McKay said many of her team
members are capable of reaching the na
tional finals rodeo that take place in July in
Farmington, N.M. The top 15 in each event
qualify for the state finals. The rodeo season
goes on all year. The FHSRA hosts 20 rodeos
a year in Florida and one in Perry, Ga., that
attracts high school teams from six states.
Members of the Okeechobee High School
rodeo team include Josh Johns and William
Bearden, who compete in bull riding, James
Greeson and Jay Zellar (saddle bronc), Ja-
coby Johns, Andrew Holmes and Bearden,
(bareback riding), Lexi Peaden, Maci Cul-
ligan and Gabrielle Carden (goal tying),
Peaden, Culligan, and Jessie Cofield, (girls
breakaway), Trey Cofield, Jacob Anuez and


last for ten years. Under recently passed leg
isolation counties will now receive payment
in perpetuity. The rate of payment is the av-
erage of the three years prior to acquisition.
"That was one of the brighter moments."
Mr. Militia said of that particular legislation.
Mr. Militia said that four drivers' license
bureaus were closed but Okeechobee's is
still open
SB 274, which was defeated, included a
provision that delegated all septic tank per-
mitting to the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP) rather than the
local health department. Mr. Milita felt that
having to go to the nearest DEP office would
be an undue burden on home owner.
Representative Mike Horner also ad-
dressed the commissioners. He said the leg-
islature has just completed a tough session.
He said there was a 10 percent cut in the
overall state budget but a 20 percent reduc-
tion in discretionary spending. He said the
size of state government was reduced and
that he had focused on recharging Florida's
economy.
On the gaming issue Mr. Horner said
there will not be any expansion of the Brigh-
ton casino. Expansion is restricted to the
Hollywood and Tampa casinos. Mr. Horner
said he voted against both gaming bills. He
is concerned that new dollars coming in will
not offset the social costs. He compared it to
taking one step forward and two steps back.
He also voted against the cigarette tax be-
cause he is opposed to any new taxes.

Garrett Rucks (calf roping), and Breanne
Lee and Raybon Durrance (pole bending).
Competitors in the steer wrestling event
include Cole Fulford, Tommy Stokes, J.R.
Gomez, Jacoby Johns and Andrew Holmes.
Josh Johns and Shelby Carden compete in
team roping, Kayla Davis and Carlie Lanier
in girls cutting, and Joseph Summerford in
boys cutting.
"I think our kids will do well, many of
the team's 26 members could very possibly
make it to the nationals," she said.
The events begin Thursday, June 18,
with cutting at the Adams Ranch in St. Lucie
County. The first rodeo performance at the
Agri-Civic Center is Thursday at 7 p.m. The
theme and color of Thursday's rodeo is or-
ange and blue.
Friday the rodeo starts at 7 p.m. The
theme is red. That will also be heart health
awareness night.
Saturdaywill be an all dayaffair with open
team roping kicking off the day at 9:30 a.m.
There will be a silent auction at 5 p.m. and
the rodeo at 7 p.m. The rodeo is a black tie
affair on Saturday. There will also be a blue
grass concert Saturday which features Keith
Bass and Tomorrow's News. They will also
crown the 2009-2010 Florida Rodeo Queen.
Sponsors of the rodeo include the
Okeechobee Cattlemen's Association, the
Okeechobee County Agri-Civic Center, Cus
tom Graphics and Signs, and the Okeecho-
bee County Board of County Commission-
ers.
Vendor sports are available. If interested
please call Cathy Culligan at 863-467-0807.
More information on the rodeo can be
obtained online at www.FHSRA.Home-
stead.com.
Rodeo admission is free but a small do-
nation will be requested for parking.


"Property insurance is the biggest threat
to our state's economy," he asserted. "We
are subsidizing property insurance rates on
the coast."
Mr. Horner said that if a large hurricane
hit the state, in order to pay all Citizen's
claims (the state owned insurance com-
pany), all homeowners' policies in the state
would have to be assessed to make up the
difference.
"That's not the way we should handle
risk," the legislator asserted. "Citizens would
be forbidden to write policies if it were a pri-
vate company."
He said that inland homeowners should
not subsidize those living on the barrier is
lands.
The rates for Citizens will now go up 10
percent a year, even though Mr. Horner sup-
ported a faster rate increase. The legislature
also did some minor reforms to Citizens.
Mr. Horner urged that commissioners ask
the governor to sign HB 1171 dealing with
insurance rates. What the bill says, accord
ing to the Mr. Horner, is that if you are a rep
utable insurance company, you can charge
higher rates. The customer can then decide
if they want to pay the higher rates.
"We need more competition,' he as-
serted. "If you want a lower rate it will not
be through government regulation but free
enterprise."
He stated that the intent of the utility
bill Mr. Milita referred to was not to affect
Okeechobee County. He was also against
the septic tank bill.
Mr. Horner said that eventually county tax
collectors would issue drivers licenses.
"If you get a fair rate for the service, it will
pay for itself," he asserted. "The state will
save money by letting counties do it."

Lawyers battle for convicted murderer's life


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
Attorneys for convicted murderer Terry
Marvin Ellerbee Jr. are literally fighting for
their client's life, and they will continue to
do so into next week.
Ellerbee, 24, was found guilty Monday,
June 8, of murdering Thomas R. Dellarco as
he sat at his kitchen table on Sept. 21, 2006.
The 12-member jury also found Ellerbee
guilty of killing Mr. Dellarco's favorite Ger-
man Shepherd, Rikki.
In addition to those convictions, Ellerbee
was found guilty of grand theft-firearm and
grand theft-auto.
Since the guilt portion of his trial has end-
ed, defense attorneys and state prosecutors
are presenting their cases to the jury who
will decide if Ellerbee will receive a sentence
of life in prison without the possibility of pa-
role, or death.
During the penalty phase-which began
Wednesday, June 10, and is expected to con
clude Monday, June 15-both sides present
evidence and testimony to the jury
Dr. Michael Riordan, a forensic and neu-
ro psychologist, spent the entire afternoon
Wednesday telling jurors of Ellerbee's "hor
rible" upbringing and his mental problems.
Among other things, he said these were
brought about by head trauma and his
mother's drinking while she was pregnant.
Through testimony Wednesday morn
ing, Assistant State Attorney Ashley Albright
told the jury Ellerbee had been arrested
and found guilty of burglary of a firearm
and grand theft-firearm. However, adjudi
cation was withheld and on June 23, 2005,
he was put on probation for a period of 30
months. While on probation, Ellerbee was
not allowed to own or possess a firearm and
could not drink alcohol or use drugs unless
he had a prescription. He was also ordered
to submit to alcohol and drug testing.
His former probation officer, Theresa
Martin, testified that from Sept. 6, 2005,
through Sept. 6, 2006, he was tested 11
times and never tested positive for drugs.
However, Ellerbee claims to have been us-
ing methamphetamine at the time.
Detective Sergeant T.J. Brock, from the
Okeechobee CountySheriff's Office (OCSO),
was also called to the stand Wednesday
morning and told jurors that Ellerbee had
written a series of nine 'notes'. These notes,
which were all headlined, referred to things
he needed to get and do. Most of his writings
dealt with getting a variety of guns, ammu-
nition, gloves, black ski masks and black or
camouflage clothing.
But there were two notes that went
even farther. On one note-entitled "Knock
Over"-Ellerbee had scribbled: "Army Sur-
plus Store in Okeechobee," "Fort Drum Gen-
eral Store" and "homes in Kenansville and
Fellsmere."
On Ellerbee's sixth note-entitled "Back
up Plan"-Ellerbee wrote: "Make Henry
sign big check to me. "150,000 $500,000.
Take him down."
Scribbled on the final note were the
words: "Make Henry Yates sign blank check
then take him out."
Testimony identified Mr. Yates as a citrus
grower owner in Osceola County.
When asked by Mr. Albright, Sgt. Brock
said there was a similarity between the notes
and Mr. Dellarco's homicide.


Later, with Dr. Riordan on the stand, the
jury heard how Ellerbee was emotionally
and mentally abused by an alcoholic mother
and a drug-addicted father.
When queried by defense attorney Mark
Harllee from the Public Defender's Office,
the psychologist detailed how, when a child,
Ellerbee was taken to crack houses so his fa-
ther could smoke crack cocaine. John Eller-
bee, Terry Jr.'s uncle, and James Brothers, a
church deacon in Kenansville, testified that
Terry Ellerbee Sr. is still addicted to crystal
meth.
John Ellerbee told the jury that when his
nephew was 12 to 14 years old he had to go
get him at a crack house because Terry Sr.
wasn't ready to leave.
He also recalled an occasion when he
took Terry Jr. to his mother's house. But his
mother, Brenda Jacobs, met them outside
and yelled at John: "Don't bring him here! I
don't want him here!"
"She hated him very much," John Eller-
bee told Mr. Harllee. "She was a very strange
person."
He also told how she would padlock the
refrigerator door "to keep the kids from get-
ting snacks."
On occasion, said Mr. Harllee, she would
make her children eat hot peppers when
they would repeatedly ask for food.
But, added John, there was also a dark
side to his nephew. Such as the time Terry
Jr. came after him with a baseball bat, or the
time he became angry and aggressive when
asked to do the dishes.
This violent side, testified Dr. Riordan,
could be attributed to several things includ-
ing Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, past head trau-
ma and bipolar disorder. The psychologist
also told Mr. Harllee that Terry Jr. could not
rely on his memory and had to write things
down.
"He had a pretty disturbed upbringing,"
said Dr. Riordan. "There were very serious
episodes of domestic violence. Other family
members said he was raised in a 'wild envi-
ronment.'"
Terry Jr., the doctor continued, also had
trouble in school and quit after the ninth
grade.
"His situation at home certainly did not
help him," Dr. Riordan added.
Terry Jr. has an IQ of 83, testified Dr. Rior
dan. And in 21 tests he said Terry Jr. scored
in the brain damage range, which may be
contributed to head injuries and Fetal Alco-
hol Syndrome.


On cross examination, Assistant State At-
torney Tom Bakkedahl brought out the point
that Dr. Riordan had testified in 10 death pen
alty cases, and each was for the defense.
Mr. Bakkedahl then turned up the heat
on Dr. Riordan and continually asked him to
show the jury a medical report diagnosing
Terry Jr. as being bipolar.
"Where in your 18-page report does it say
that the defendant suffers from bipolar dis-
order? Where?" demanded Mr. Bakkedahl.
Dr. Riordan answered that Terry Jr. suf-
fers from symptoms that are consistent with
bipolar disorder.
Mr. Bakkedahl also drove home the point
that there are no medical records stating
that Terry Jr. is bipolar. And that when it was
documented-such as when asked by Raul
erson Hospital emergency room personnel
and officers at the Okeechobee County Jail
when he was booked-it was "self-report-
ed" as medical history by Terry Jr., he said.
The doctor answered that it was possible
that Terry Jr. was the information source,
but his paperwork "doesn't state that."
"These records are only as good as the
information provided, right?" asked the
prosecutor.
"Right," the doctor answered.
Bipolar disorder is described as a serious
and lifelong illness marked by severe mood
swings.
When pressed by Mr. Bakkedahl, Dr.
Riordan had to agree that when Terry Jr.
shot and killed Mr. Dellarco on that hot
September day he was capable of making
a decision and was capable of planing and
executing that plan.
According to testimony Terry Jr. was
alone in Mr. Dellarco's home on N.W 282nd
St. up to two hours. Then, when the U.S.
Army veteran returned home and sat down
at the kitchen table, Terry Jr. stepped out of
the master bedroom and fired one shot from
a .22 caliber rifle into the top of the man's
head.
Terry Jr. then dragged the lifeless body to
the garage and covered it with a blue blan-
ket.
Both sides are projected to present their
closing statements in the penalty phase
Monday morning. Once those have been
completed, the jury will begin to deliberate
whether Terry Jr. will live or die.

Public Forum/Speak Out


Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the 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!

Play ball
Have the other parents of OCRA kids
noticed that it seems the new batting order
is designed to mainly use the players who
have chance of being All Stars. We have too
many kids and too few teams. Many of these
average kids only play one or two innings a
game and bat once or twice. I thought this
was recreational ball for all children to figure
out if they like the sport and a chance for all
of the kids to learn more. Maybe they should
just say only the best kids should sign up.

Awards
When we went to the teacher's ban-
quet -- they include the non-instructional
employees now so it isn't just the teacher
banquet. And they said we all matter. But
when they gave out the awards to the teach-
er of the year and employees of the year, it
made me wonder just how much we really
matter to them.

Mortgage crisis
This is about the mortgage crisis. 90
percent of the mortgages are paid on time
every month. You've got 10 percent dead-
beats not paying their mortgage on time.
I don't know why they're calling it a crisis.
They are just trying to scare people. What
are they trying to do, scare people into sell-
ing their homes or something?

Be careful
They say school is out so be careful
and watch out for the kids because they are
out playing or walking around the neighbor-
hood. Then when school is back in session,
they say watch out for the kids because they
are walking to and from the bus stops. Why
don't they just say drive safely all the time?
It's not like there is a time of year when you
don't have to watch out for the kids!


Agri-Civic Center
It's too bad our graduates have to get
their diplomas in a rodeo arena because the
county spent all the tax money on a special
interest project instead of building a nice air-
conditioned facility. The girls could not even
wear nice shoes because they had to walk
on dirt. And afterwards there was nowhere
for the families to greet the graduates and
pose for photos with them. And sitting on
those metal bleachers is not exactly com-
fortable for the old folks.

Advice to the graduates
Those leaving high school may be all
excited about going off to college or going
out on their own into the workforce. But
don't burn any bridges. If you are quitting a
job, give notice and give them 100 percent
effort while working out your notice. You
may need a reference someday. And if you
are moving out of your parents' home, don't
act like you are so glad to be leaving them
and never want to see them again. Someday
you may want to move back in.

Schools
I don't understand how they can say
they need fewer teachers next year. The
classes were crowded this year. It seems to
me they need to keep the teachers they had
who were doing a good job.

Gun control
This is about the guns comment. I
belong to the NRA. I think we need our
guns and our Second Amendment rights
left alone. They are getting ridiculous. They
don't know a machine gun
from a semi-automatic
rifle. There is a differ-
ence. They talk about
the United States and
the problems with the
drug cartels. Don't they
realize the drug cartels
have billions of dollars?
They're not just buying American weapons.
If you have enough money, you can buy
anything. The drug dealers have their own
weapons and their own navy. If they want
to stop drug dealing, you're going to have to
get down and dirty and if you catch a drug
dealer shoot to kill. If a criminal wants a gun,
he isn't going to register it.

ICC
Please everyone, call your elected
representatives and senators about the ICC
treaty. This is an international criminal court
that would give them the power. It would
give that court power that would be superi-
or to our Constitution. So far 90 senators are
opposed to it. Let them know we are with
them. But big influential newspapers don't
report of the government because they are
part of it. For the full story read the May 25
issue of the American Free Press.

the veterans who served their country and
for the people who are in the military. I didn't
know it was a holiday for everyone to have
a half-price sale or get drunk on. I guess that
is what it has become. You are dishonoring
the veterans and that is not right.
It makes me sad that so few people
honor the true meaning of Memorial Day.
It is a time to remember those who died in
service to their country. It is not a time to
party and have a barbecue. Our service men
and women gave their lives for our freedom.
And how do we honor them? Every year
there are fewer people at the ceremony in
the park.

Fishing
This is about the guy who was attacked
by the alligator at Nubbin Slough who was
using a cast net. I thought it was illegal to
use a cast net in fresh water.

Comics
I want to thank the person who put
the information about the online comics

went to three days a week and if you go

every day for free. You can even design your
own list of your favorite comics and have
them emailed. Combined with my online
newspaper subscription, I have everything I
want and don't have to worry about recy-
cling the old newspapers.

Flags
I see on the TV where theywant to ban
confederate flags on people's shirts. If they
are going to do that why don't they also go
after the shirts with Mexican flags, Haitian
flags, African flags, Puerto Rican flags and
all the other flags. If they ban one flag, they
should ban them all. The confederate flag
does not represent rednecks. It represents a
way of life that used to be. If you want to ex-
press your pride in being born in the south,
they call you a racist. If flying a confederate
flag makes you a racist, then doesn't flying
all the other flags make them racists too?
Even the gays fly a flag. Why aren't they of-
fended by that?

Socialism
They say it is Socialism but they are
getting closer to Communism. They want
to take half my money and give it to people
who don't want to work, drug addicts, peo-
ple on the welfare rolls. Look at California if
you don't believe me.

Depend on it
It used to be you could only depend
on death and taxes. Now there is a third
thing. You can depend on the electricity in
my neighborhood going out any time there
is a storm.

Haiti
Those people trying to get over here in
the boats. Those people are starving in Haiti.
We have a surplus of alligators around here.
We need to thin the herd, and freeze the
meat and send it to Haiti.

Coaches
I want to thank the high school for doing
something about the coaches. I don't want
to hear the coaches using bad language. The

Legislature challenged by economic issues


By Rep. Mike Horner
House District 79
It was a tremendous honor to represent
House District 79 during the 2009 Legisla-
tive Session. This was a difficult year where
many tough decisions were made. By far the
most important issue we faced was shap-
ing our state budget for the upcoming fis-
cal year. The current economic recession
has had a dramatic effect on our state's
budget. Reconciling our state's wants and
needs with the historic decline in revenues
made for a challenging legislative session.
While some believe we should raise taxes
to deal with our budget crisis, I believe get-
ting our economy back on track is the best
remedy for our state's financial difficulty. My
major goals for this session were recharg-
ing Florida's economy, protecting education
and balancing the budget without a massive
increase in taxes.
To accomplish those goals, we were
forced to make significant program and ser-
vice cuts. To lead by example, the very first
bill I filed this year called for a pay cut for our


state legislators. I am proud to say that leg-
islators will be receiving a 7 percent pay cut
this year. This pay cut sends an important
message that the legislature understands the
significance of this difficult time in Florida's
history.
To recharge our economy, I was proud
to work with my colleagues to reform Flor-
ida's workers compensation system. If we
had not addressed this issue, workers com-
pensation insurance rates would have sig-
nificantly increased next year which would
have negatively affected Florida's businesses
and economy. In addition to that, we accel-
erated the approval time for state economic
development incentive programs and the
state permitting process, both of which will
aid Florida businesses during our economic
recovery.
Budgets are about setting priorities and
my first priority is education. Despite the his-
toric loss in revenue our budget includes an
increase in per-student funding for our K-12
schools. To accomplish this we were forced
to shift money from many state trust funds


including Transportation, Land Acquisition,
Affordable Housing and others. These were
difficult decisions but I believe these steps
are preferable to reducing education spend-
ing.
From a job creation standpoint, one
of my great disappointments this session
was the failure to approve the SunRail li-
ability agreement. SunRail will be a huge
economic development boost to Central
Florida. Fifty percent of the funding for Sun-
Rail comes from the Federal Government.
If Florida demurs, those Federal dollars will
go to another state, similar to the time when
Orange County passed on light rail and
Charlotte, N.C., took the funds slated for us
and built their very successful rail system (it
is no coincidence that Charlotte now enjoys
a significantly higher standard of living than
Central Florida). Transportation and Educa-
tion are the two keys to a community's pros-
perity; SunRail is an important component
to our region's future that I will continue to
champion.
I voted against the cigarette tax increase. I


believe that we should have made additional
cuts to the budget instead of raising this re-
gressive tax that disproportionately impacts
our low income citizens. I also voted against
the gambling bills that will advance the Sem-
inole Indian Gaming Compact and expand
gambling at paramutual facilities across the
state. I believe the long term social costs cre-
ated by gambling are not worth the short
term revenue to the state.
On a positive note, I am pleased to report
that the first bill I passed is a constitutional
amendment to waive homestead property
taxes for deployed military personnel fight-
ing for our country oversees. Our men and
women in harm's way should not be worry-
ing about whether or not they are going to
lose their homes while they are confronting
our nation's enemies. Voters will have an
opportunity to pass this important amend-
ment in the 2010 general election.
As always, if you have any questions or
suggestions please don't hesitate to call my
legislative office at 407-943-3077 or email
mike.horner@myfloridahouse.gov.

Civil Air Patrol cadets take to the skies


Okeechobee Civil Air Patrol went glid-
ing on a recent weekend in May. The
cadet In the cockpit enjoyed one of
five glider orientation flights entitled to
him as part of his participation in the
Civil Air Patrol Squadron.
The Okeechobee Civil Air Patrol Squad-
ron participated in Cadet Glider Orienta-
tion Rides at the Immokalee Airport the last
weekend in May.
Cadets in the Civil Air Patrol program are
entitled to five Powered Orientation Flights
and five Glider Orientation Flights which are
both known as O-Rides. Powered O-Rides
are flown often and supported locally with
Squadron pilots and CAP aircraft. Gliders,
glider pilots and glider operations are not as
readily available, so this was a unique op-
portunity for the Okeechobee Squadron.
Cadet O-Rides are funded by the U.S. Air
Force through the Civil Air Patrol and are de-
signed to offer the Cadets the opportunity to
experience the principals and basic skills of
flight. Each flight is based upon a syllabus
and starts with a pre-flight inspection and
lasts between 45 minutes to 70 minutes.
The Cadets are given a ground school for
each lesson and then have the opportunity
to take the controls to experience and apply
what they have leaned on the ground once
they are in the air. The first flight begins with
some hands on flying and includes climbs
and turns to allow the Cadet to get used to
the aircraft. Subsequent flights include navi-
gation and communications.
The syllabus is designed so each lesson
builds upon the last and includes aerody-


namic principals for that flight.
All the aircraft used for O-Rides are owned
by the Civil Air Patrol and the fuel expenses
for the flights) are paid for by the U.S. Air
Force. The pilots are all volunteer members
of the Civil Air Patrol and while not a require-
ment, some of the O-Ride pilots are also FAA
Certified Instructors.
The Okeechobee Squadron is very fortu-
nate to have four CAP Powered O-Ride Pi-
lots and a CAP Cessna 172 which it shares
with Ft. Pierce and flies Powered O-Rides
on a regular basis. However, there are not
as many glider pilots or gliders in the CAP
Fleet and this was the first opportunity for
the Squadron to fly gliders. The gliders are
towed to altitude by a tow plane on a 200'
rope and then released, usually at 3000' for
O-Rides.
Glider flying is considered to be flight in
its purest form. With no engine running or
propeller turning, all of the dynamic forces
associated with propeller powered flight are
non-existent. The only forces exerted on the
aircraft are purely aerodynamic. This gives
the Cadet the opportunity to feel and experi-
ence the pure aerodynamic principals they
have been learning in the Cadet Program.
And if they are lucky, they will find a few
thermals and experience thermal lift.
Glider Flying is also a great team building

and leadership opportunity. Gliders require
a ground handling crew to get them posi-
tioned on the runway, connected to the toe
line and launched. This involves moving the
glider around on the ground while taking
commands from one person, then commu-
nicating with the glider pilot and the pow-
ered tow pilot using hand signals to confirm
a proper tow line and initiate the launch.
And finally running alongside the glider for
a short distance to stabilize its wings while
it gains airspeed during the take off roll.
Cadets and senior members participated in


the ground handling with each Cadet taking
turns as the Ground Chief communicating
with the pilots and directing Ground Hand-
ing Operations.

Meeting brings OUA



good financial news


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
In these days of financial woes, the
Okeechobee Utility Authority (OUA) Board
of Directors, heard some good news at their
meeting on Tuesday, June 9.
After reviewing the finance report for the
period ending April 30 board chairman Frank
Irby remarked that while revenues are down,
expenditures are also way down.
John Hayford, OUA executive director,
said this was in part because the current
budget was planned at a time when fuel pric-
es were much higher. He said some of the
savings are the result of the cascading effect
of lower fuel prices. He also said that some
expenses have been deferred and they have
been careful with overtime.
An OUA customer had complained about
being charged a sewer fee for irrigation wa-
ter which did not flow into the sewer system.
The sewer billing system is based on the
amount of water flowing through the water
meter. While the board took no action on
this particular case they did direct staff to
research the possibility of making sewer bill
adjustments in certain cases.
Turning to construction, Mr. Hayford
explained plans that would eventually con-
nect the surface water treatment plant to the
groundwater treatment plant and provide
better serve to the southwest area. The proj-

District FCAT scores on the rise


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Most Okeechobee Schools improved on
the FCAT tests this year according to results
released in recent weeks by the Florida De-
partment of Education.
Director of K-12 Accountability and As-
sessment, Sharon Suits said the schools
are very pleased with the performance of
schools and students this year, "We've seen
some definite gains in the district. We are
closing the gap on the state and were hap-
py to see that. We are going for our goal of
achieving excellence."
Ms. Suits said there is a lot of hard work
going on in schools. She praised teachers
for their dedication and the students for their
hard work.
Several Okeechobee schools have met
and surpassed the state standards.
"We're really proud of that and we're
proud of the schools that are making signifi-
cant gains," she said. "We are pleased. We
are encouraged by this."
On FCAT writing, 68 percent of Okeecho-
bee fourth graders scored at a high level of
achievement. That number went up by sev-
en percent this year. Everglades and Semi-
nole showed gains of seven and five percent

respectively. Central, North, and South El-
ementary each had one student who scored
a perfect 6.0 on the FCAT writing test.
Eighty-five percent of 8th graders scored
at or above the state average. Osceola
showed solid improvement, and 86 percent
of middle school students scored at a high
level. 13 students at Yearling Middle School
and seven students at Osceola had perfect
scores.
Okeechobee high school lost some
ground on FCAT writing, about two per-
cent.
On FCAT math, sixth and seventh graders
scored higher than the state average. Eighth
graders were two points below the state av-
erage.
Middle school students also showed sig-
nificant gains on FCAT reading.
At the high school, tenth graders stayed
about the same in FCAT math but declined
slightly in reading scores.
At the elementary level, there was im-
provement across the board. On FCAT math
North Elementary scored well above the
state average in third grade. South outper-
formed the state average in fourth and fifth
grade math.
Central third graders showed strong im-


provement and North and South Elementary
had solid improvement in third and fourth
grade.
On FCAT reading, North Elementary
school shined with solid improvement. They
had an 18 percent increase in third graders
who scored at grade level or above. The dis-
trict as a whole got closer to the state aver-
age in third, fourth, and fifth grades.
Ms. Suits said the FCAT is becoming more
familiar for teachers, students and adminis-
trators. She noted the stress of taking the test
is still there, but that students are more used
to being examined on their knowledge then
they were when the FCAT started.
Ms. Suits added that teachers and school
administrators are more aware of the stan-
dards and the expectations of the state. She
noted school administrators are more in-
volved in the curriculum.
Okeechobee also did very well when
compared to other counties in the Heart-
land region that have similar demographics,
"We're very pleased with how we scored
compared to those schools. We have lofty
goals. We are on our way to meeting and
surpassing state standards. We hope this
trend continues and we get better and better
as time goes on," Ms. Suits said.

Management said levels on Lake Okeecho-
bee have risen significantly in the past
month. He noted last year's dry season was
the driest on record.
The lake is losing 3.1 million gallons per
minute to evaporation, he explained.
"What we would like to see the lake re-
charge itself with about 4.5 million gallons
per minute coming into the lake. With the
continued rainfall in the upper chain of lakes,
that is not out of the question," he said.
Mr. Ritter said one of the challenges of
the dry conditions and lower lake stages
has been the change in the lake operating
schedule. In years past, he explained, there
would be times Lake Okeechobee would
reach almost 18 feet. That will no longer be
the case for at least 10-15 years.
A new Lake operation schedule will be
designed to keep the levels lower. Ritter said
it won't compromise water supplies, and
will be better for the environment.
The ideal levels will be 12.5 feet to 15.5
feet. "The Corps is not going to let the lake
get up high if at all possible."
Tropical Storm Fay rose the levels of the
lake 4.5 feet in about two weeks last sum-
mer. It will still be a challenge to stop these
variations in levels as most of it is decided by
mother nature.
The locks at the north end of the Lake,
specifically Lakeport and Buckhead Ridge
are a concern to Glades County officials. The

locks have had to be closed due to lower
lake levels, which has hurt boaters trying to
reach the lake.
Mr. Ritter promised to have manpower
at locks once the lake levels reach 12 feet.
Tuesday the level was close to 11.75 feet.
Ritter said the structure at Buckhead
Ridge will remain closed until the work on
the Pearce Canal is finished. No boat traffic
will be allowed in the canal throughout the
summer.
Kendel Wilson, a resident of Lakeport,
complained about the locks being closed at
Harney Pond. He said he didn't see a reason
for the locks to remain shut. "They have al-
ways been left open for access, even when
the water is low. We could get out on the
lake in the past with an airboat very easily."
Danny Callahan, senior forest ranger for
the Division of Forestry in Glades County,
presented a proclamation to the commis
sion for Smokey the Bear's birthday. A spe-
cial event will be held at Perry Park in Moore
Haven on Aug. 8.
Mr. Callahan praised Glades County for


the work they've done to cut down forest
and wild fires.
Commissioners also approved an agree-
ment with the other counties in the Florida
Heartland Rural Economic Development Ini-
tiatives in regard to the catalyst project. The
site for the project is the Sebring Airport.
Glades County will see five percent of the
annual property taxes if a research and sci
ence institute is placed at the airport.
Commissioners also voted to lift the ban
on open outdoor burning in the County. The
ordinance will remain in affect, but no fines
will be issued and the burn ban placed in
abeyance.
The county also took initial steps to hire a
consultant to help them develop plans for a
new health department complex.

Local kids learn pro football from the best


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
Former Brahmans who played college
and professional ball brought along a couple
of famous friends Saturday, June 6 to teach
local kids the fundamentals of football.
The John Grace All Star Football camp
attracted a large number of youth and high
school football tI, to the Okeechobee
Sports Complex. 11. :amp was organized
and sponsored by the Chaka's Stars Pro-
gram.
Grace, a defensive player of the year in the
Canadian football league, and a former star
at Marshall University and Okeechobee High
School, retired last year after his successful
football career.
"It's good to come back home and give
something to the community which gave me
so much as a kid. I was fortunate enough to

talent in Okeechobee and its good to show
these guys that they can make it."


Joining Grace was another former Brah-
man and Marshall player Curtis Jones. He
was one of the best wide outs in recent
Okeechobee history He noted he felt an
obligation to teach kids what he was taught
many years ago. "I miss high school all the
time, it is always good to come home. I see
the future here and hopefully new stars like
Lonnie Pryor will take our tradition a little fur-
ther," he said.
Jones earned a Masters Degree at Mar-
shall. His career was derailed by ankle in-
juries. He now works for a Senator in West
Virginia. "Ever since I was a little kid I wanted
to play football with dreams and aspirations
to go to the NFL. Every one of these kids I can
see it in their eyes, they want that too. I know
I could have gotten to the pros but I have no
regrets," he said.
Other players on hand included Eric
Kressler, a former OB at the University of


Florida and the Cincinn.; C.,,. ,1 .. .
Beckett, who played for ti~- 'I

"I feel good today. The kids are really en-
thused and we are trying to teach them tech
niques they can use later in their careers. You
have got to share the knowledge. People gave
it to me when I was younger," he said.
Gladstone Coke, one of the best players
ever produced at Moore Haven, was also on
hand. He now lives in Sebring and notes he
has a passion for coaching and teaching, "I
enjoy being out here. John Grace is a great
friend of mine and I have told the kids to be-
lieve in their dreams, keep things in perspec-
tive and strive for their best." Coke played
with Grace at Marshall University.
Parent Sheila Neal had three sons com-
pete in the camp. She noted it was a great
event for Okeechobee kids. "I think its very
important to give back to the community

Local coaches on hand included Cary Mc-

camp the program has sponsored in the past
few years.

Okeechobee pair appear in all star game


By Charles M. Murphy
Okeechobee News
They didn't get any hits at the plate but
the Treasure Coast Senior All Star game was
still a hit to Okeechobee's Dustin Stokes and
Mike Minondo Tuesday.
"It was a lot of fun, I didn't get any hits,
but Mike did real good, and it was fun,"
Stokes said after he went (0-3) in the North's
team 9-1 loss to the South All stars at Met
Stadium in Port St. Lucie.
Stokes played the entire game in right
field. Minondo started in left field and played
about half the game in left. He also pitched
a perfect inning of relief for the North All
Stars.
"I thought I did alright, I haven't pitched
in awhile, it felt pretty good to get back out
there and do well. I felt pretty comfortable.
My fastball felt good when I released the
ball and my cutter ball came around. I feel
good," he said.
Minondo retired Nick Zaharion of South


Hunter of South Fork, striking out two in the
relief appearance.
Brahman Coach Dylan Tedders served as
third base coach and assistant coach for the
North Squad. He said anytime a high school
kid can play on a professional field, it's a
good experience.
"It was good seeing Mikey and Dustin out
there. Mikey battled at the plate, and had a
great inning on the mound. It's good when
you can come to these games and be suc-
cessful."
Minondo drew a walk in three plate ap-
pearances.
Stokes will play at Indian River State Col-
lege this fall. He also is playing American Le-
gion ball for Fort Pierce this summer. They
played a game in Okeechobee Tuesday
night and plan other games in Okeechobee
this month. The team includes several play-
ers from Okeechobee.
"This was real good competition today.
They had South Fork players who just won
t


the state championship," Stokes said.
The North scored their only run in the top
of the first as Shane McCain of John Carroll
drove home Billy Sakany with a double. The
south tied the game on three walks and an
error in the third, and then broke open the
game with six runs in the fourth. Mike Beck
of South Fork had a two out, three run triple
for the South All stars. Clay Hagler of Mar-
tin County and Robert Bednar of South Fork
added RBI singles.
Josh Ziemba of Jensen Beach tossed
three shutout innings for the South Squad.
Okeechobee was joined by players from
Sebastian River, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce
Westwood, John Carroll, Lincoln Park, and
Fort Pierce Central.
The South squad included players from
Port St. Lucie, South Fork, Centennial, Martin
County, Treasure Coast, and Jensen Beach.


Mike Minondo struck out two of the
three batters he faced in Tuesday's All
Star game.
